Lifeguards union says de Blasio pool plan is dead in water
"Welcome to CAP. CAST is June one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand and twenty. Here is your news from around the world. Kind of Kinda works imagine if we had like a bad. Like some kind of channel, six or something. The New York Post Nolan Hicks of the New York Post is reporting that the lifeguards union has said no to build a Pasi does plan actually the New York Post, so let's go ahead and read the headline because that's that's what they do. Best Lifeguards Union says to Blasios Pool. Plan is dead in water. Like. So here's here's what no one has to say. Cools out for summer. There is little chance. The big apple will be able to open its outdoor public pools this summer. Do staffing shortages and training snafus despite Mayor Bill De Blasio, publicly floating the notion in recent days, according to the head of the union, representing city lifeguards. Just WanNa editorialize for a second. This is why I love the post even when they're like reporting there still so much editorial just baked. Like the Pun about bill, De, Blasio floating public notions. Quote I'm not hopeful pools. Sorry excited on that hopeful, the pools is and said Hair Henry Gerardo. President of AF. District thirty seven, who said the coronavirus pandemic has delayed and complicated training so badly. That is unlikely they can get staff certified in time. I don't think we'll be ready to have enough personnel to do the training and get them certified in time for the Pool Story Open. He told the post quote. Instead he said the city and the union have focused their efforts on getting lifeguards ready to patrol city beaches, offering some hope that New Yorkers will be able to find some escape from Gotham off swelling summers. Interesting sentence the parks. Department fifty three outdoor pool has been a staple of summer life for decades attracting more than one point seven million visitors during the summer of two thousand nineteen alone quote, we are currently training lifeguards in order to open our beaches for swimming, if and when it becomes safe, says city hall spokesperson John Jane May Meyer quote. We continue to recruit and train lifeguards and are assessing. If it is possible to open pools this summer end quote wanted to bring the story up because New York. City has some of the most pools per capita anywhere in the world. There's a lot of people in a very small area and I. Don't know if you've been to New York in the summer. Have you ever been to New York in the summer before now, but I've seen movies it's. Looks uncomfortable. Talk Shit Right? Yeah, it's it's hot. It smells like urine. I've heard that a lot. Like, like the urine. Smell really comes out in the summertime. Hug. It really does it off an especially. If it's like just started to rain, because then it likes teams and you're. To Crow But this is, this is a really big issue. I mean the lifeguard shortage around the country is impacting a lot of places in their ability to open ever GonNa get a little later in the stories like the time line to get people in the door has been pushed so far down the line that we find ourselves. Potentially, not able to open spaces that should be allowed to be open if you don't have enough lifeguards to sit in tower, no city or town is going to open up their aquatic facility, so I have a feeling what we're seeing in New York is going to be the same repeating story in a lot of other places around the country. Talking about public pools. So! Lifeguards Union in New York, city, so like any pool needs to have lifeguards, and within certain like obviously private clubs are an exception, but any public facility has to have lifeguards there within this union. And in order to be a union member, there's all the stuff that you have to do and in order to qualify just to be a lifeguard. There's a lot of stuff that you have to do to. So. By them saying they're going to focus on opening up the beaches. That's probably because they can. I have more of a capacity of people at a beach than they can add a public pool, so they're. They're trying to triage their resources to the place where the feel they can give the most people the most released. Okay come say who's really dying to go back to a public pool like. Let's let's. Have you been to put to public fault. Me Personally Yeah. Santa Cruz? Cabrillo is the closest, and that's not even public. Grafton Sale. But I used to live back east, and my family's from back there in like there are community pool is all over the place like that is people. When people live in apartments, they can't have pools. Most apartment buildings can't facilitate like a pool on the roof or something so you're kinda limited to twenty four hour, fitness or New York, Sport Club or wherever?

"God for Sports with our Guide through all you know, they're supposedly only to guarantees two certainties in life, death and taxes. How is it then drew that the Commissioner of baseball basically guaranteed, there'd be some sort of a season yesterday on not one, but two television outlets explain that to me well, because he is the he has the authority. To unilaterally say we're playing the season. We're playing a fifty game season. You guys are getting the prorated. It's the same amount of money that the owners have been. Dangling, but the pro rated basically one third of their salaries is what I would get and he he can universally implement that, and then if the players were to then sit out, that would be a strike, so he would say well. Look at these players. They don't WanNa. Play I said the season starts ex, and that's the. That's what his. Ace in the hole right? There is that he can universally implement that by the terms of the agreement. They reached in March. So that's why I'm confident. There's going to be season because if everything else breaks down in the next couple of days. He's just GonNa say we're playing fifty games and here it is and take it early bite. Right, so he's confident. That's the smirk of a man who has that in his vest pocket. So, was it? Was it a was it? A threat issued the players or was it meant to assuage. The baseball starved public I think it was a mentor. Assuage the public and say we know what we're doing. We're going to have baseball for you in some form or fashion, so it's not going to be what the players wanted to be. which is more games more money? So. Is there any reason for the owners to move or to negotiate? If they have that hammer backstopping, Nemo, if that's the number of games that some owners are perfectly fine with playing, why even negotiate? That's a great question. They've gone back and forth. How many times now? Several. Have Gone. I mean official provis back and forth a proposal I don't know if it's official proposals going back for the media lobbying like this current proposal that the players got Monday which they're going to reject. The question is do the players counter that or just say nope, no good try again. Here, here's what I think if I recall drew, was the back and forth owners eighty two game sliding scale on no fan, revenue players Nona. We'll play eighty two full preparation owners now. How about fifty players about one fourteen owners? How about forty eight players okay seventy nine? Owners seventy five with seventy five percent of your salary, and now I think the players. Are the players now? The ones about the proposer now. All the players out recently said eighty nine now. They're like eighty nine games. At full probation and the owners are like we'll get back to you. That's our. That's pretty much it. You pretty much summed it up, so and then it'll get interesting because if it's fifty games and he unilaterally imposes that. There may be some star players who are going to be free agents after the season. who say it's not worth risking injury the virus for that crap tastic season I'm going to sit this one out. And, not only yeah, not only injury, not only the virus, but risk a bad season. That's rushed. So why you WANNA put down a one ninety eight batting average. In a shortened season, in which you're not properly prepared to play going into your free agent year. That's very valid concern for many of them. So I would say drew a mere forty eight game schedule. Is that the number that the owners can force forty? Fifty fifty fifty. Fifty fifty game season. Is that worth. Doing. as opposed to not having season. Yes, because then you're going to get if you can get expanded playoffs if they if they don't screw that up if they if they did there too long and don't have time to expand the playoffs, then it's not as good because once you get to the play. Offs and people are in the flow it's. It'll still be exciting. The players already agreed to expand playoffs last winter. Correct correct, so we were headed towards an expect a playoff season. Everything! Shut Down Right. I believe that this was this was a condition of the. of the okay, okay, so so we were non Kuwaiti nod agreed on expanded playoffs until they said Hey, we're shut down because the pandemic bought. Would you agree to expanded playoffs in the players? Said Yeah with conditions. Yes, so could they reject playing any play-offs or just expanded playoffs if the owners forced march him into a fifty game season. I think they have to do whatever is on the table at the owners might be able to scale back because of feasability because of schedule and weather like they don't WanNa go past the end of October necessarily because there are some cities that wouldn't be conducive to write. Having gets cold quite yeah, yeah, the deeper into November. You get, so wait a minute. So what would the expanded playoffs look like I? Believe it was a sixteen team format. They were saying You look that up. I can't see where it gets murky through cancer, so many proposals that are you know back and forth? Format, you want to yeah, yeah. The expanded playoffs for twenty years. As it stands now like with what they have agreed to because I remember it being sixteen teams. Ten to fourteen clubs, doubling the wild cards in each league to four. Sixteen, so four wildcards so then. It would be I remember they were. They were going to do away with the one game. Play in and do best to three or you know with with at one site, so there was no travel day. In essence or there was also I remember hearing something about that. The team with the best record in the wildcard would start with like one game in the bank, and then it was. It's still best of three. Whereas the team with the lesser record had to win both to to. Where is the team new? Record had to win. Those were some starts best best to three with the home team already up one nothing. Yeah, basically, that's with. That's weird, but okay, so series. Yeah, that's kind of what that's. What was being floated around, but I've never seen anything really concrete on on that. Because I still think they're hung up on money. I don't think read. Those other things aren't hotter. Know. You want whatever we can. I feel you on that, but at this point with all this stuff swirling around I'm like Nana. It's too late flush. Flush, the whole thing, it's too messy. It's going to be to slapdash if they force the players. There are going to be players that sit out like you said including a couple of star players. Who knows who could be expanded playoffs in super short season that it about the orioles. Any of it, though that is the beauty of beauty in the strike in the strikes, short season of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty one. The brewers won the second half and made it to plan for the first time in their history, and it was electric. It was amazing. It was like chefs kissed stuff. We didn't care a bastardized season. It was they.

"It's still too soon to tell whether the massive protests against police brutality that erupted in the past two weeks have led to more infections. In Georgia this is my favorite in Georgia where hair salons, Tattoo, parlors and gyms have been operating for a month than I have. Case numbers have plateaued flummoxed saying experts. Let me. Let me fix that sentence. Case numbers have plateaued disappointing experts. On HASHTAG team virus. Had to go look. For for weeks now because I subscribe to the Milwaukee Journal. Sentinel, for weeks now I've been hit with the biggest boldest headline about the latest increase in cases in our fine state. The latest newsletter and not newsletters I got email that they say here's. What's in the newspaper, which isn't really a newspaper. It's digital thing you pay for. We talked about big. Headlines are always like the latest ray increase cases in Wisconsin okay. This time it's like no headline about their own. It's something else, and unlike okay. SCROLLING scrolling had to click on the link. It takes one to talk about the universal mask policy that county executive David Crowley has issued. It's not universal. The policy requires that employees. Contractors vendors volunteers. Service users and members of the public where face masks when entering county facilities. And grounds that have a controlled entry point. However, they're not required at the airport on buses or an outdoor park spaces, including beer gardens, so that doesn't sound very universal to me, doesn't but okay universal facemask policy? It takes one to six six paragraphs. Where they report Wisconsin reported two hundred seventy new cases Tuesday out of fourteen, thousand, two, hundred and twenty seven tests run placing the percentage of positive tests at one point nine percent. A new low. Since the pandemic began to pick up in the state. Now. Why don't they put? New Loewe in positives reached. Pandemic abating on the headlines that said they were ready to go since they were queen. Nothing desert papers, nothing sells papers, not even dead fish sell papers. Man I got some dead fish I got a wrap up. What do I do? I don't know? The website, wrap it in the website. What's right on its read on the coronavirus update tab on the GS online. It says Wisconsin Labs Process, ten, thousand, one hundred eighty seven tests Tuesday. Put in two hundred eighty five new cases at about two point eight percent of all tests. It's up from Tuesday's record low of one point nine. It's up. Cases are spiking. Yep, there's that new surge that is raising alarm among nine. Point nine right right. This is why shouldn't read you know? Department of Health and health services chief medical officer. Ryan Western guard called the dropping percentage positive rate, quote an encouraging sign, but warned. That it doesn't signal I certain that transmission rates of the virus are slowing. Especially because the state has still tested relatively few of its residents, only three, hundred, sixty, eight, thousand out of five point eight million. Apparently the US case count reached two million confirmed cases. That is point six percent of our fine brawny ass, sprawling freedom, loving country, three hundred and forty million people. And headlines that say ninety nine point four percent of the US. Had the Rona. Of course not. But Hey. Why let a good click bait thing go to waste. Protests are dying down that that's kind of run its course for now let's pivot pivot. Where's my pivot sound bite getting? Why don't you have that handy at all times God's Sakes, what does it take pave art? Meanwhile. We could talk baseball draft if you want because that's exciting. And the fact that apparently some NBA players have been on conference calls saying. Do you really want to go to Orlando because I? Don't sounds Kinda miserable. Can you imagine if the NBA's plan to restart falls apart because players start talking like now, it's not do this. Of course Lebron, and of course Janas and of course. The guys that have a chance at a ring. They're ready to go. The rest of the teams that we thought had all agreed. Yeah, let's go down there and play a little bit of regular season, a little bit of play tournament and I like I. Don't know Kinda comfortable here at home. That would be a disaster for the NBA, hopefully, it's just idle chatter and they're just trying to negotiate a better hotel. Maybe it's because they heard there at the pop century. That's what. We talked about pop century yesterday or days ago and now all of a sudden. They're getting wobbly. You think they're not related. Think again these to Disney going fools. Their families know damn well. It's pop century Hell. They're laying note right out beds. I even loan now. Long heads no good.

A Walking Tour of Dublin, Ireland
"Start. Today's all Irish. Our with tips for a walking tour of Dublin with nearly two million people in Greater Dublin. Ireland's capital is by far its biggest city and it thrives with Arts Entertainment Food and fun just taking a walk through Ireland's capital. You can see and experience so much of its charm. That can know where to look and if you know where to walk. It's even better. That's why we've invited to Great Irish guides. Joe Darcy and Karen O'hare to join us in our studios for a guided stroll through Dublin. Joe and Karen thanks for being with us. Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended. Kennedy College is an expert on the Ellen pipes which he performs with the company trio opened the door for three Joe. Darcy provides custom walking tours of Dublin and was recently on the board of historic Sweeney's pharmacy. Where James Joyce readings are given throughout the week when we go to Trinity College? Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe. Tickets into that the most important building built in Dobbin Jordan rebuilding eighteenth century was a new bike camera. Houses apartment one of the first purpose built house the parliament certainly in Europe. If not the world took about forty years to complete S- between seventeen forty. Seven hundred eighty and housed. Two Chambers House will come in the House of Lords very much along the the British can step into one of those houses to this day. It's open during banking errors free and and you really got sense of that little after the act of union and the first of January eighteen hundred one we became part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Bank of Ireland. Arden's forced commercial bank. They took over the building paid for the House of Commons. Hot To be put out of use never to be used as a place of assembly again but they said nothing about the House of Lords so the Bank of art and has maintained. And it's a beautiful room. It's mostly open Jordan banking hours occasionally there's functions and there you'll see a sign outside that it's either open or closed. I stumbled into it just this last year.

"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me. He's a super effective player. I I I think he's GonNa be okay as the distance is longer obviously is a full brother Mohammed and a half years day. There's a lot there in the pedigree just really impressive on paper and it was good to see him run as well as he did you know He. He broke his maiden at nine furlongs last summer at Saratoga and it looks like okay. Here's a real two year old and I you know he ran into you. Go into a little bit shorter and the breeder security at keeneland and Max field because two things came together and got him beat but he's definitely better horse than he showed that day and it was good to see him back it up the trump

It's our weekly look at the leading edge of science. It's always harvest time in California's central valley, the nation's fruit basket, but little else is certain here. Just ask grower. Bob blakely. I mean, if you had a million dollars you'd be better off going to Las Vegas and gambling it then you would be going out here and becoming a citrus growers must clear a high bar to achieve success. The fruit has to be perfect. If it doesn't look pretty sitting on the supermarket shelf. They're not going to purchase it which puts them at odds with these little guys cousins of grasshoppers called Katie which do a lot of damage to crops to kill Katie dead's, many growers turn to a class a potent insecticides called organo-phosphates the most widely used as corpora FOSS manufactured by Dow DuPont, preface works. How fast? Pretty much within minutes or hours. Okay. Yeah. Serious stuff. Yeah. Entomologist Beth Grafton Cardwell is director of the linn cove research and extension center here. They grow citrus. Trees deliberately subject them to an onslaught of pests and then try to figure out the best way to kill them to save the produce. Sometimes the solution is in organo-phosphate like Clark purifies get lost 'cause they're nerve poisons and the broad spectrum and their general and no kill a whole array of pass. But for the same reason organo-phosphates are very good at killing Katie dibs. They are harmful to humans, especially children. So our kids continue to be exposed by virtue of living near agricultural spring. UC Berkeley, professor and FD meteorologist, Brenda Eskenazi. Is researching the impact organo-phosphates have on children who live near the fields here by more? She began studying six hundred pregnant women in the Salinas valley nearly twenty years ago. Eskenazi found pregnant women with signs of organo-phosphates in their urine gave birth earlier had children with diminished IQ's and more attention problems. When the kid was school age lower Q and middle school age poor executive function a little bit later. And now, we're beginning to show. Some signs of poor social cognition, which is kind of related to autism lakes symptoms. Claudia Angelo lives beside the fields in the central valley with her four children. Her twelve year old son has ADHD. She is convinced it has caused by exposure to Clark fos when he was in utero as well. As a mother knowing about the pesticide that caused DC my child Boris. I'm also worried that my children continue to be exposed to these on a daily basis. In August, federal court ruled the EPA must ban all uses of FOSS nationwide. By the end of November the agency originally had promised two years ago. It would put the ban in place by March of two thousand seventeen President Trump's EPA shelved the idea to allow further study keeping Clark FOSS on the market. The has appealed the ninth circuit court ruling. Meanwhile, growers say they are trying to employ an alternative approach called integrated pest management one of the primary tactics make the enemy of their enemy their friend that is insects that prey on the crop damaging pest so called Beneficial's the approach makes Fosse less attractive for growers copier is hard on some of our Beneficial's. So we don't like to use it. If we're if we want to maintain our integrated pest management program, we'd rather use something. That doesn't harm Ravana officials point with many growers are changing their strategy in the face of an escalating threat posed by invasive species. The first fifteen years of my job, I had virtually no new invasive pests escalating because there's just more people out there moving more products spends about ninety percent of our time focused on the biggest threat of all the Asian citrus Cilla, which spreads the bacteria that causes a disease called Hong bang. Also known as citrus greening it. I hit Florida in two thousand and five and has since decimated much of the citrus crop there. But so far that dreaded young long Bing disease has only appeared in some backyards in greater L A. Not in any commercial groves. California's citrus growers say they need to keep the pesticide in their arsenal. They say it might come in handy as they tried to avoid a repeat of the devastation in Florida. We have to be more aggressive because we're basically fighting for our survival. If the if. Shelby said well on being becomes established. We won't have a citrus industry. It will. It will kill the interesting district because at disease kills the trees, and there's no cure. But while the EPA was considering a ban on Clark. It scientists concluded there are safer alternatives to the pesticide. Miriam Rockin Elman is a senior scientist at the natural Resources Defense Council, which has sued the EPA hoping to force it to follow the advice of its own scientists to ban Pira FOSS, it's important that we take action where the science shows us we need to to get chemicals off the market. We also need investment in nontoxic farming. We need farming that doesn't poison the workers we need farming. That doesn't result in toxic residues coming home in. Everybody's grocery baskets and ending up on the plates of their children. Indeed FOSS is detectable on conventionally grown produce sold in grocery stores, washing fruit helps but the only guaranteed way to avoid the chemical is to buy organic. So why isn't that the preferred means of production, but in terms? Supplying the vast quantity of fruit that we need. It would be very difficult to do it organically nothing against organic. Why people prefer that this product I grow in my own home is usually organic because I don't I don't use pesticides around my home. No such luck around. Claudia Angelo's home nestled near the groves in central valley. She doesn't have a choice. Now. My your economy are leaving the place where the economy is fueled by agriculture.
