"Into the studio. No, you don't have to come in. You can follow it from you can drive in and listen to Bloomberg radio. Yeah. No, I'm a train guy. Oh, well, 35 years of community on New Jersey transit. And apparently they're about to upgrade Penn station. I don't believe that. I do not believe that dude. The day I die is the day they will complete it. Can I just tell you I had a really interesting train experience. It was my first time on metro north. That's not too bad. This time. By the way, did you feel like a queen when you went into Grand Central station? I did feel like a queen. Isn't it? You just feel like it is lovely. You just feel like you're at the capital of the world. So for everything is revolving around you. Right. So for those who don't live in New York metro area Grand Central is absolutely an museum of a train station. It's a palace. It is a world class like you see in Europe. Penn station, on the other hand, is absolutely. It's the worst thing you can imagine. Worst experience ever. And it is busier than Grand Central. Jakarta has a better train station. Exactly. Penn station. Now that's the bad news. And it's bad. But the good news is apparently the money's been allocated the plans are set. They're ready to go. Well, they're actually doing construction work now as we speak. So hopefully and maybe ten years when I stopped commuting, it'll be all set to go. Well, it did just renovate the Amtrak part of that of part of Penn station. Did they? And that's actually really nice. That is very nice. But nobody uses it. Well, I don't use it because the New Jersey transit doesn't go in there. But apparently it's all happening. It's all going to happen. And so hopefully hopefully at some point in my life. Anyway, how was the metro north? As is a metro north, they need to add Wi-Fi. I was like, there's no service. That's a problem everywhere. Yeah, but there's Wi-Fi on the New York subway. Why is there not one? It doesn't really work. I mean, it's there, but it doesn't work that way. And even Amtrak doesn't. There's Wi-Fi on planes, but you can't really do anything with it. Yeah, exactly. All right, pretty good, the Bloomberg markets correspondent metro north rider we appreciate that. We'll check in with you soon. Right now, let's head down to Washington, D.C. will get rolled in national news with Nathan Hager. Where the cell phone service has gotten better on the metro.

"Lesbo erotic subtext. But chop priority was always direct action. One Valentine's Day, the lesbian Avengers installed a sculpture of Alice B toklas embracing Gertrude Stein in Bryant park. The next year they handed out chocolate kisses in Grand Central station with the message you've just been kissed by a lesbian. These activists were following in the footsteps of earlier changemakers says the story in Lillian faderman, I think that for many young people would happen in the previous generation was forgotten or never known. And it was so important that this radical group of women used that tactic of zaps. She says they had a big impact. I came out into what we call the gay girls community in the 1950s. And I think we saw ourselves young lesbians. There's outlaws and if we were lucky beneath the radar if we weren't beneath the radar, we were in trouble. We were being fired from jobs or kicked out of schools or kicked out of parents homes. Today Gallup says Gen Z kids identify as LGBTQ more than any other generation, but hundreds of anti LGBTQ measures are being introduced in state legislatures, including more than a dozen so called don't say gay bills. Carrie Moyer says three decades later, visibility still matters. You need to be in a room with other people where you're actually talking about things. And the kind of passion around creating change is fueled by being together. Although the lesbian Avengers disbanded in the late 90s, Dyke marches are still going strong. New York City's 30th will take place tomorrow without floats, sponsors, or even permits, as has always been its policy. Jade watts is one of the organizers. Dyke was a derogatory term thrown at lesbians and people who were female at birth are perceived to be female at birth who dressed masculine. And so you can be a straight person and be called the guy just because you're wearing like a wallet chain. So now a new generation is reclaiming the term, and adding a few more colors to the rainbow flag

Nick Nicholas Jr's Path to HBO

"I wish you could all somehow meet Nick Nicholas junior, and I wish there were more like them in the world. Nicholas was educated at Phillips Andover, Princeton, and Harvard Business school. But with all due respect to that trio of pedigrees, it's doubtful those places taught him as much as his father did. Nick's dad commanded two submarines during World War II. The salmon and the spike fish and was part of the gang known as the Nimitz boys after the great admiral. Nick's dad instilled in his son, a strong moral compass, and a keen work ethic. One of numerous reasons why Nick junior enjoyed such a spectacular rise at time Inc, all the way to the top. But before the powers gave him his own set of keys to the kingdom, IE the company. They sent him to HBO to further test the young stars operational capabilities. It was a challenge. Time Inc was on the verge of closing down HBO. It was in 1976, and my boss dick Monroe, Jake and I used to walk to the station at night. That is to Grand Central from time and life building. At high speed, a little cardio, and he broached the idea. He said, Nick, I'd like you to move to HBO and take over the management. He said things are going well, you know that. He had to lose in a lot of money. The company, meaning time make is going to continue to finance it. So I want you to replace Levin whenever you can do it.

Drake Drops $1 Million at Strip Club Following Astroworld Tragedy

"Do. There's always something to talk about. There's always something to get me angry. So, you know, I'm met with this story of Drake, the rapper, going to a strip club after the whole crazy incident where 9 people died at the astral world concert and Houston and Drake went into a strip club afterward, and he brought a $1 million in cash with him, and he left a $1 million in cash on the strip club floor. He did that for the girls. Now on one hand, that's a tremendous gesture. You know, I think it's great that men who have a lot of money show up and take care of these women. I think that's fine. I've given money to strippers. I don't like when you throw it on the floor, I think it's demeaning. The image of a girl on her hands and knees, pulling dollar bills together on a dirty wooden stage makes me sick. I think that's demeaning. I don't like it. I don't like it in the same way I don't like somebody shining my shoes. I did that once. I worked at the daily news, and there was a shoe shine stand. Right knee again, Grand Central terminal, and these guys love to do what they do. They're good at it. They get the rag, they spit shine your shoes, and I said, let me give it a shot. I did it. And one minute and I'll never do it again. The sight of a man cleaning my shoes was awful. I can't do that to people. Even if he loves his job, I can't watch somebody clean my shoes. But I bet the strip clubs I throw in some money around him, that's like that older I decided. I'm not going to throw it on the floor. I'm going to hand it to these girls. Because they've earned it. So Drake decided to throw a $1 million on the floor. Now, mind you, this is several hours after people

"Design all in all revitalization efforts created more than two thousand jobs for new yorkers. Grand central was rededicated on october. First nineteen ninety eight. A new yorker writer wrote tongue in cheek that the restoration quote managed the trick of making grand central look virginal while making it more commercial. William j. wilga was long dead by this point but that sounds a lot like what he was originally going for by the turn of the millennium grand central was ready to accommodate our revived city. But then manhattan faced. Its worst day in history. While grand central's busiest day on record was in the summer of nineteen forty seven even more untalented people likely pass through on september eleventh. Two thousand one. The twin towers collapsed and commuters some dirtied from the tragedies debris scrambled for any train out of the city but transit officials worried the grand central could be targeted in the next attack so they evacuated the terminal and stopped. Incoming trains eighty blocks north at one hundred twenty fifth street. The single metro north employees tried her best and map out the best detours for worried. Passengers officials eventually opened up one exit and let passengers in one by one after searching their bags once people were in they tried to get as far away from the city as possible. It was a harrowing day but grand central terminal offered escape. Two meters probably would have been even more frightened. Had they known that grand central didn't have any emergency tears response system in place at the time according to one of the control center operators they were just winging it but the transit system has since stepped up its protocol now. It has exhaust fans to stop the spread of smoke or toxic gas. There's also a souped up camera system that can detect foul play every corner except maybe the secret corners. Peter calico chairman of the metropolitan transit authority spotted one near an abandoned railway tunnel in two thousand three. He was surveying a new project to connect the long island railroad to grand central. He and a few co waited beneath the eastern side of the terminal near where tracks. Sixty one east to be then. An old urban legend popped into his mind. Rumor had it that president franklin delano roosevelt had a private train car somewhere near here. Curious calico wandered down the abandoned shaft to see if he could find it but as he got closer a throng of men popped out of the shadows to a cost him. They were all wearing suits and they had guns. The men told calico he wasn't allowed to go any further calico and his companions were confused. This was his railroad. Surely he could go wherever he wanted. Normally sure that not that day. President george w bush was at a nearby hotel for united nations engagement. The secret service had cordoned off this section of the tunnel as a potential escape route. Perhaps bush's secret passageway had its own train car the same one. Fdr had used maybe the same one every us president uses when they need to be discreet. Next time we'll explore some of the conspiracy theories surrounding the secret rooms tracks and passageways in grand central like conspiracy theory number.

It was the most daring idea that ever occurred to me. We'll just wanted to demolish the existing grand central depot and swap out all the stations steam powered trains for electric ones. Getting rid of the noxious fumes would help. Train operators see their path ahead. They could even run underground more tracks beneath the surface. Meant less need for bulky. Train sheds on street level. We'll just figured the leftovers space could house retail businesses and encourage private development. He envisioned the new station as a so-called gold mine and he was right today. Grand central terminal is a bustling masterpiece spanning forty eight acres and forty four platforms in the heart of manhattan. It's one of new york's biggest architectural gemstones and arguably one of the most majestic transportation hubs in the world but any building with so much money traffic and history as its fair share of

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations

"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

Ethiopia's conflict spills over border as thousands flee

"This week, he sent federal troops into a province of his own country. Hundreds are reported dead in the northern region of Tigre and refugees air spilling over the border into Sudan. So what explains the shift from peace to conflict? Michelle Gavin is a former ambassador and senior fellow for African studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Ambassador Gavin We're talking about the Ethiopian province of Tigre, where the violence is happening. It's squeezed into the northwest corner of Ethiopia. Figure it straddles the border of Eritrea to its north. What is so important about Tigre relative to the rest of Ethiopia? Well for many years, the Tigre and People's Liberation Front that sort of dominant political and military entity in Tigre was really first among equals in the ruling coalition for all of Ethiopia so to Graham's played an incredibly prominent role in Ethiopian governance, politics, security But with the rise of the new Prime Minister Ahmed There's been a bit of a re balancing in Ethiopia. And this is kind of opened up contest station from ethnicities across this incredibly diverse country. And there has been kind of widespread feeling that for too long, a small minority from Tigre had too much control of the federal government. So there's political tension between Tigre and Addis Ababa. Are there also historical grievances between two grand central government that we need to mention? I mean, is there a back story here? Tigre is now fighting at us. There's a lot of back story Ethiopian and certainly to Gran's were and incredibly, they weren't just dominant, politically and in the security services for many years, certainly under the leadership of Prime minister malice, But they also suffered most in the long and very costly in blood and treasure war with your tria. So there is there's also you know, a sense of probably grievance in that sense. Abby's come to power they feel targeted by new personnel choices by new policy choices. What maybe others in Ethiopia see as a re balancing the Tigre ins can often feel like persecution despite the tremendous sacrifices that they have made for the country. There are reports from Tigre oven. Ethiopian air campaign heavy bombardment at times. I mean, what's at stake here as far as you can tell ambassador Is it a possible civil war between two grands and Ethiopian troops? There is Tigre saying. We've had enough. We want independence. How should we interpret what's going on? We should absolutely be worried about a civil war, which I don't think would necessarily be contained just Teo, the Tigre region, giving all of the other tensions and actors. So what's at stake? You know the wellbeing of over 110 million Ethiopians. Regional stability. Conflict in Ethiopia has a very high chance of drawing in Eritrea. Sudan, tipping the balance of Sudan zone very fragile transition. Ethiopia's incredibly important actor in trying to bring stability to Somalia to South Sudan distracted and weekend. Ethiopia is really quite devastating, Tio this entire horn region which is strategically really significant, and there are a lot of actors external to Africa. In the Gulf, the Chinese and from the West, all of whom care deeply about stability in this region, so the prospect of drawing others in of proxy conflict it's really a powder keg, and the consequence will not be confined solely to what's happening inside Ethiopia's borders. Michelle Gavin, senior fellow for Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. She also served as ambassador to Botswana from 2011 to 14. Ambassador Gavin Thank you very much. Thank you.

Internet: Old TV caused village broadband outages for 18 months

"It sounds like the plot of a SCIFI novel. In fact, it's literally part of the plot of a sci-fi novel. I read last month Hank Greens a beautifully foolish endeavor every morning for eighteen months the broadband Internet went out in a small village in Wales. Engineers ran a cable replacement program, but it didn't work every morning at seven am on the dut the Internet would go out for the entire village. The engineers were stumped into the used a monitoring device called a spectrum analyzer and walked around the village looking for electrical noise. Engineer Michael Jones said quotes at seven. Am like clockwork. It happened our device picked up a large burst of electrical interference in the village end quote. But it was not alien tech, it was instead a secondhand television set that an anonymous householder was turning on every morning at seven am and which omitted enough true `interference specifically a single high level impulse noise or nine to affect the broadband signal and knockout the Internet in the whole village. The TV owner has said that they were mortified and has agreed not to turn the TV on ever again. Quoting BBC Suzanne Rutherford Open reached chief engineers lead for Wales said anything with electrical components from outdoor lights to microwaves can potentially have an impact on broadband connections. We just advise the public to make sure that they're electrical appliances are properly certified and meet current British standards she said and quotes. which is good to know except most people probably wouldn't be aware that their device is causing any sort of problem i. mean it took them eighteen months to work this out I don't think that your average Joe would necessarily ever think that technology like outdated TV could affect modern tech like broadband but of course, it can and I do think it's interesting to see the interplay of older and newer technology and almost reminds me of how devices that run on electricite go haywire at hogwarts because all of the magic interferes with them, which was definitely based on a real scientific theory and not a convenient explanation as to why the characters didn't watch TV or use computers.

WOMEN SUFFER TOO

"What was I saying? From far away as in a delirium. I heard my own voice calling someone Dorothy. Talking of dress shops sub jobs. The words came clearer. The sound of my own voice frightened me as it came closer and suddenly there I was talking of not what to someone I'd never seen before this very moment. Abruptly, stop speaking. Where was I? I'd wake up in strange rooms before fully dressed on a bed or couch I'd wake up in my own room in or on my own bed not knowing what are our day was afraid to ask. But this was different. This time I seem to be already awake sitting upright in a big easy chair in the middle of an animated conversation with a perfectly strange young woman who didn't appear to think it strange. She was chatting on pleasantly uncomfortably. Terrified I looked around I was in a large dark, rather poorly furnished room the living room of a basement flat. Cold chills started chasing up and down my spine. My teeth were chattering my hands were shaking. So I took them under me to keep them from flying away. My fright was real enough but it didn't account for these violent reactions. I knew what they were. Right a drink would fix them. It must have been a long time since I had my last drink. But I didn't dare ask the stranger for one I must get out of here. In any case in any case I must get out of here before I let slip my abysmal ignorance of how I came to be here and she realized that I was stark staring mad I was mad I must be. The shakes grew worse and I looked at my watch six o'clock. It had been one o'clock when I last remembered looking. I'd been sitting comfortably in a restaurant with Rita drinking my sixth Martinian hoping the waiter would forget about the lunch order at least long enough for me to have a couple more, I'd only had two with her but I, managed four in the fifteen minutes I'd waited for her, and of course, I'd had the usual unaccounted swigs from the bottle as I painfully got up and did my slow spasmodic dressing. In fact, I have been in very good shape at one o'clock feeling no pain what could have happened. That had been in the center of New York on noisy forty second street. This was obviously a quiet residential section. Why had dorothy brought me here who was she? How I had? I met her I had no answers and I dared not ask she gave no sign of recognizing anything wrong. But what had I been doing for those lost five hours my brain world I might have done terrible things and I wouldn't even know it. Somehow I got out of there and walked five blocks pass brownstone houses. There wasn't a bar in sight, but I found the subway station, the name on it was unfamiliar and I had to ask the way grand central. It took three quarters of an hour and two changes to get their backed my starting point. I had been in the remote reaches of Brooklyn. That night I got very drunk which was usual but I remembered everything which was very unusual. I remembered going through what my sister assured. Me was my nightly procedure of trying to find. Willie, Seabrook's name in the telephone book. I remembered my allow resolution to find him and ask him to help me get into that asylum he had written about. I remembered asserting that I was going to do something about this that I couldn't go on. Remembered looking longingly at the window as an easier solution and shuddering at the memory of that other window three years before and the six agonizing months in a London. Hospital. Ward. I remember filling the peroxide bottle in my medicine chest with Jin. In case my sister found the bottle I hid under the mattress.

Bedroom not Boardroom

"Seems that we have all of our conversations either in our master bathroom when you're in the bathtub I'm in the. Or you're putting your makeup on and I'm shaving when we go to bed at night. Yes. How many people? Couples in this country, find that their bedroom has become the center of their home. You know I think for us. It's just the only tiny little space that we can actually have five minutes a privacy but what I have come to realise here in the last couple of weeks is that our bedrooms should not be our boardroom. Century. Our bedroom should be our sanctuary for personal time which you don't get enough attention tape. And Conversations that you and I want to have that is going to build us up. That's going to make better as a couple. Not. Dealing with issues with housekeepers or house managers are car detail. People are the nanny are the kids needs or whatever. I think our bedroom should be our personal sanctuary that belongs to us. I think you're right. I think you're right and I think because people don't realize how many people we have in our home at all times. Folks we have roughly thirty people in our home every day you know the crew gets to our house, they unload their gear, and then they start whether that's lighting whether that's needed to talk to me or you or the kids, and then you have chasing Savannah coming in, and then you've got Grayson and Chloe, and then you've got your mom and then it's a it's like grand central station Grand Central Station's probably not as busy right now is our house is or our bedroom and bathroom. Yes. When Savannah comes in, she's coming to the master bathroom because she has access to all of your makeup mirror. Whatever. So she can touch herself. And then when chase comes in, he's got to use my hair paste my Cologne. He and then go upstairs to my causing get. Yeah. So roughly get dressed halfway before they get to our exact. So you are I think you're exactly right. I just don't know at this particular stage in our life where else we can go because literally todd todd spins half his time just trying to find a nook or cranny where you can get and have some privacy whether that's a phone call or whatever I mean. It's just not there in this house no and so. I have made the decision that today I am ordering a digital lock to go on our bedroom. That, it will be fingerprint just like what's on my closets and no one will have code except for me Julie. And making a commitment to you going forward that we will not discuss business in our bedroom. We will not discuss anything other than you wanting to touch me improperly and the hush. So folks if your bedroom is turned into your boardroom, change the way you do business. Okay.

Redux: Should I Stay Or Go?

Redux: Should I Stay Or Go?

"We're going to be talking about letters that essentially ask that question. Should I stay or should I go and as we as we go through these questions today? We'll there'll be a sort of ever escalating build up to the harder questions. Staying are going as we know. Sometimes it's a fairly light decision other times. It's incredibly complicated. Well you're in the middle of this male storm because you and your big mouth you're kind of like Grand Central Station of ambivalence about whether people should you know stay with the status quo or get out of usually a destructive relationship because of that column. You wrote. That's right and there's a quote from that column was titled. This calm was called the truth. That lives there. I I also touched on this issue with my com tiny beautiful things quote from tiny beautiful. Things is that people have bandied about the Internet and wanting to leave is enough and I think that you know that. Certainly the heart of this column so I received essentially a chorus of letters from people who are in one situation and that is. I love my partner. I respect my partner but I just have this feeling that that there's something else out there for me and that I want to go explore other things now. Some of these letter writers had been dating the person for a few months. Some of these letter writers were married for years. And what I you know my answer was really I- I answered via story about my own struggles. When I was married to my first husband. I was in that exact situation. I loved him. What was so painful about my divorce is I had to break my own heart again. You have to be brave enough to break. Your is something I wrote and something. I learned the hard way because I kept waiting for there to be a sort of outside reason. Leave my husband. Oh he was abusive or he was. He cheated on me or he did this or that or the other thing and honestly. I think that that's ultimately why I t's on my first husband which I really regret because it very much my values but I finally you know I. I was so young that I didn't have the strength. Or the internal sense of of knowing that like it was enough for me to say I need to end this relationship simply because I feel like there's something missing in my life and I need to go seek it and I need to seek it on my own outside of the confines of a committed relationship and so to do that was revolutionary for me life. Changing a great decision and an incredibly painful one so in this column the Truth. That lives there. What I was speaking to is not the idea that the minute you have any doubts or struggles in a relationship. You should leave now sometimes. It's been misinterpreted in that way. And I think that's really unfortunate. I am all for grappling with your feelings and stain in those difficult moments and relationships and seeing what's going to happen on the other side of your fears your doubts so I don't advise people and I'm just going to say it for the record. I said not columbine got overlooked of course is that it is important to know that in every relationship. We're going to have doubts in every relationship. We're going to have struggles but in my experience there was also this burning core of truth and what I said to people is when you have that feeling. The only question left is are you going to do it later or are you going to do it now and almost always when you have that kind of truth. That is driving your decision. The truth lives there. You know the sooner that you can see to it the better off you're going to be and also the better off the people in your life. I wasn't doing my husband my ex-husband any favors by staying married to him. Because when I was in so much turmoil in doubt and the minute I cut myself free of that. We were both liberated essentially from the struggle and allowed to go off and have the lives that we've come to have and so many of the letters that we get have to do with that fundamental feeling. There's some forced. It's telling me I've got to change my life. I've gotta get out of a relationship a workplace whatever it is and yet and we know that even though the constant condition of life is change people are terrified and justifiably and they sort of crave as children do routine and stability. And that's our HOMEO- static mechanisms operates this war inside of all of us and so that's what we're going to get into going to battle battlegear on. Let's do it the first letter all right dear. I've been pulled into an emotional affair with an older married friend. He and I became close over the last two years. What I initially saw. His friendship has grown into intimacy. He has a troubled marriage. That's been on rocky ground for a long time and it has survived his infidelity. My friend and his wife have children and are trying to make their marriage work while. My intentions are not sexual. I care very deeply for my friend and I still crave the closeness and emotional intimacy of our relationship. Is there a way to salvage this friendship in a way? That's healthy and respectful or do I need to politely. Bow Out before I create more trouble in an already. Turbulent life signed totally in over my head What he thinks. It's a very complicated letter so totally in over my head. The first thing. That is really just confusing. It's unclear to me why you are referring to this relationship as an emotional affair rather than a friendship if your intentions are not sexual but there is deep intimacy there. Why wouldn't it be a friendship? Why do you categorize it as a licit and my suspicion is because as parole reminded us in our infidelity episode? There isn't this sexual alchemy necessarily but there's something that feel secret and covert and that occupies a space a kind of emotional intimate space. That really is appropriate for a partner and I say this all the time in the context of relationships. You know you know a friendship is over when you're talking more about somebody than to them and you know That a marriage is really in trouble when your partner isn't the person with whom you have the deepest most intimate conversations. It feels to me like what you're saying is that you are in a relationship with this guy that occupies the space and the emotional energy and attention that should be going towards this guy healing his relationship with his wife which is what he says he wants to do. I think if we apply Cheryl's complex rule of thumb. This letter is an expression unawareness that you are occupying a space right now that you feel really as appropriately belongs to this wife and husband until they can figure out whether the marriage is going to sustain itself and be re healed and then your friendship doesn't have to be something that's an emotional affair. It's what we need in life outside of our central partnership if we find a partner is good friends. There's suspicion that you're casting on yourself and I would think less about his life. Think about your life. I think this letter comes out of an expression that you know that you're in a relationship that's unhealthy for you at the moment. My Hunch. Is that your hunches. You need to step back from this friendship until he figures out whether his marriage is going to be he'll lable or not. Yeah I think that you know the answer totally in over my head. You don't sign a letter totally in your head. You're you're in a relationship that's not right. That doesn't feel right to you. And so you need to bow out. And we all crave closeness emotional intimacy and you can find that in a relationship that feels. That feels good. And so you need to let this one.

She's so smart watched grow and blossom and she's a mom to be so. I'm so happy for her. She's just a really beautiful elegant woman and what's so incredible is and so unique about this is that for all of you women out there who are trying to become mothers or are are in a certain stage of pregnancy or maybe you just had a baby about. It seems like there's a lot of conflicting stuff out. They're out there and you know for some women she. She said that she got really sick at first yeah and she was feeling her where she's got great advice for that by the way so you wanna stay tuned for that but what was interesting is that she's also an on air correspondent so even though she was feeling like trash she had had to look her best and i think that some of the tips that she has here a really wonderful so it's my pleasure to introduce our next guest miss kelsey bowler. I feel like this is <music>. Are i like on the road show. I finally got you to d._c. To d._c. We totally got out of. I got out of the train like ryan. There's the capital oh my god we have to. We have to take a picture he's like are we doing this now but meanwhile as someone like drives by the cat calling oh god god indeed seeing these bad as new york the catcalls no although that i train station freaks me out more than new york transition he was really worried about. I don't know i mean it. Was it was a nation. I know but there's just a lot of grand central's better better but passion. I would take union overpass okay. I'll the i agree so kelsey. Thank you so much for having us here. First of all where tell us about the building that we're in right now because this it just feels old an old and all of the right waved preserved like it's had some good bo talks not like it needs a renovation. We're talking saying i'm really beautiful. What does the history behind this building while it did recently get some bow talks downstairs at the staff lounge where you got your waters and coffees when you walked in here but we are at the heritage foundation which is why working working as the nation's leading and largest conservative think tank. I have been working here for five years. <hes> i'm on the media side so oh i call myself conservative journalists they have a multimedia website called the daily signal and i produced videos. I write right and i do commentary for them. <hes> been here yet five years in in d._c. In it so close to the capital. I never take those views for granted. I have to say and i will throw this in. I met kelsey gosh. What was it ten years ago. At least we were working at fox <hes> at at the time we were working on <unk> slaving away there i that's how i met you guys in ryan right there too so oh. It is so awesome when i see you now on fox. It's just like a proud older sister. That's how i feel so congrats ball cause you were my older sister sure and so funny that i'm doing media now because i still get so nervous and i am not a natural like you were and still are and i still look to you for inspiration because you just like don't care what people think you will do. Stand ups in the middle of nowhere. Who's watching and i get nervous if i have like three people watching meanwhile on t._v. Millions of others could and they and they are but you know what you really. You pull it off so well. You're so eloquent and you look gorgeous. You really do i mean and with that beauty. That's your like one of those people who its natural beauty and i have to ask what are are you doing now because it was one thing when you were twenty five but now that we're not actually how old are you now. Let's say thirty wow the big three. Oh welcome welcome. Welcome welcome. I've only got what like another five minutes left. Hold on girl so tell us a little bit about what you do. Beauty beauty wise while it's it's an interesting question especially coming from the background where you know me from at because i did work very briefly the in the beauty and lifestyle world and i learned a lot very quickly <hes> but i also very quickly realized that moving to d._c. From new york was the the right move for me because i wanted to learn about how congress works how bill becomes law and really <hes> take my career in that direction. <hes> <hes> an beauty. I just have to say i'm very blessed from my mom and my parents i say my face and my hair i i get from my mom and my height and my good genes. I get from my dad. <hes> i don't over think it. I always loved natural beauty <hes> so i just i just tried to accentuate <hes> qualities that i already have i feel so lucky to have nice hair and for wild growing up i never wanted to touch it or highlight highlight it because i was worried that it would get stringy and unhealthy while she was the smart one sit out in the sun or good tanning beds either yeah i did go to a couple of dealing that you get your skin checks. Now not not too not too many but i did <hes> but you know i i. I guess maybe it worked for me because my hair is still in good condition and i don't do anything over the top now and i tried to only get highlights. <hes> maybe three times a year just so i don't overdo it and i do buy losch <hes>. Is that my pronouncing it right. No that's okay. It's i mean the tomato tomato tomato but at the end of the day you're not overlapping and you're not going all the way to the root. It's <hes> bellagio is the french term so it's just awesome. It's a technique. It's painting. Don't worry because i butchered you. Remember that time. I tried to say what was <hes> dr harass the e._m._t. No i turn a lot of things on here so you're in good company <hes>. I hope it's okay that i share <hes> you're also a mother to be. You're expecting <hes> congratulations with that. Thank you and so i was interested in how you're handling you know on the one hand you're on tv right which is a visual media and you. You have to be looking your best on your on t._v. On fox and on the other you know you've got to be concerned about what they're putting it or face about. Things things like highlights like have there been any concerns as a expecting mother that other women might be like <hes> absolutely <hes>. I'll get into that in one second but i just have to say with t._v. Makeup i've learned very fast. It's very different from makeup that you would wear every day yeah on. I'm very lucky that i can go over to fox news in have their professional hair and makeup artists <hes> do my hair and makeup when i go on t._v. V and there. I learnt some really simple tricks that i incorporate now like <hes> the how how much fake lashes can really open your eyes and change you. Hello she points to her. I have eyelash extensions. Ryan has gotten eyelash perm. They still goodbye amazing the things about that. I feel naturally too short to even work for naturally too long so everywhere i go people like your lashes great user naturally too long long. They are what what a terrible i didn't. I didn't think they were gonna look fake when i did it and they can. They know they don't don't look fake. They just looked phenomenal. Think yeah i had no idea and calculating but like you would probably not do this because the chemical anier i in be while you're pregnant right. Yeah i guess not. I'm trying not to be too crazy. <hes> you know i'm still using my same makeup and skin in care. I use kills love. Their cleanser love their moisturizer <hes> but the hair products. I was more concerned about and i didn't really have a way around this. It's actually something. I'm concerned about them out of hairspray. That's flying around the fox news green room when i'm there multiple times a week and i'm just inhaling failing that i'm like he's still be alive province. You're good. You're more than great. I mean our mothers and grandmothers than that al net honey you know women have babies who work in hair salons around chemicals and stuff all day not just the hairspray work until the absolutely popped the baby out to because it's you know what's up. It's that niche where like you have to be. You don't get paid if you don't work so they're working up until they can't so you're good nichols honey. I promise so i try try not to be too crazy and over thinking things and i just let the professionals do their job. When i go in there. It's amazing that i can <hes> go bare face jason half asleep because some of the hits are super early in the morning and they make me look awake with those big lashes that actually don't look good once. I leave fox when you're not used to wearing that makeup. It's very very heavy. Well they'll tell you they would never put this makeup on you unless you were going on t._v. It's not the type of makeup they do for even for your wedding right. It'd be very different right <hes> so when i come home absolutely my husband does not think i look amazing which is funny because when you're on t._v. You do look amazing amazing. They know what they're doing but in person it's not. I actually take it off very quickly because i'm also worried about <hes> breaking out. Totally i call it deboning. That's what i used to haul it because it was like oh my gosh you look like a playboy bunny but not in the best ways that said thomas now i think he's so used to it because he works at foxtail and sees all the women in in their lashes in their makeup that he'll be like no. You look fine but i think it's from a distance. What is it like a monet from a distant far far from good head. Yes crazy 'cause now at h._d. Cameras it's like it's it's what they have to do to kind of pop your features and and smoothed everything out because it doesn't if you don't cover it it doesn't hide and then with hair. One thing that everyone can do at home that i learned from them is teasing teasing. Oh the backcomb right. You just need to buy that teasing comb which is like a couple dollars. Conair c._b._s. makes all the difference does so. Do you tease everyday. I gotta be honest. I feel like i will when i remember but it's never really got to get in there. Don't you ryan not really with the right comb you. Shouldn't you know when you back home. It's just a couple hits and you should be good to go and then spray it with a little hairsprayed and it'll stay back or does you're going i it's so i tried to do it this morning and i feel like it falls out by the end like my hair's not brea no not at homes night the yeah either dry texture dry shampoo apu or hairspray like anything to get gritty <hes> but i'm sure again you want to minimize be careful yet and there's there's a balance at fox their <unk>. Sometimes i'll ask them not to tease it too much because when you think of fox when we worked there ten years ago they would have like the big hair care and they're very good <hes> about like working gene with women like me in making ourselves. Look you full but professional and not going overboard. That's the thing i think that there has to be a balance between <hes> how about between the helmet hair that sometimes you'll see and <hes> you know really appreciate the fact that there are younger women and and playing up that youthful beauty that is still elegant the last time i saw you. I handed you hair extensions for your wedding my gosh i had no idea what i was doing. How did that go. Oh well. Did you see pictures. They were amazing. It was it was one of these crazy hot weekends of course even though it was in september over labor day the weekend so my hair was curled and luckily we got most of the pictures done in time and later on in the night my hair was like pretty much straight straight actually by the end of it was up in a bun because i stopped carrying and just got sweating on the dance floor fun <hes> but the extensions makes such a huge difference and it was i i know amber was the first person i ever met who taught me what extensions were and so she was the first person i went to one as i need extensions for my my wedding and obviously she hooked me up with the best of the best and i got so lucky that ryan now lives indeed so ryan is this is like three degrees of separation or two because the person that i learned extensions from was ryan so here we are at this happy circle of

NYC to Be First US City to Use Congestion Pricing: How does it work?

"On the show congestion pricing. This is basically the idea of taking one part of a city, you know, maybe the most crowded part of the city and charging people to go there today on the show. Does it work who's doing it and is coming to a city near you? Also, how long is it gonna take me to get across town? Okay. So we should try to hail a cab. Oh looks like there's some Cavs. Oh my gosh, right away. Hi. We're just going all the way across town to the west side. No. He just looked at us. Like, we were insane. We're like we're trying to get cross down. Here was like, oh, no. This message comes from NPR sponsor snowflake. The only data warehouse built for the cloud unlock.

Today's indicator is to that is how many miles it is from one side of forty second street to the other so across Manhattan, the horizontally, so this is deep midtown. The beating heart of overcrowded New York, forty second street goes by Grand Central station time square port authority bus terminal. It is one of the most heavily traffic streets in the. Yeah. This two miles roughly twelve blocks is a treacherous stretch. So treacherous as Dr I discovered some calves will not even drive it. It's a nonstarter for some cabs. But we finally did find a heroic cabdriver who would take us Muhammed Sharif. He's been driving taxi in Manhattan for about six months. Now, what is it like driving a New York? It's. Restarting time, we're gonna see how long it takes us to get cross town, and it is four thirty five pm definitely rush hour. So this congestion pricing plan was passed by the New York legislature. But it won't be put in place for a couple of years. We asked Muhammad if he'd heard about it. What do you think about that? I'm not sure you would say would lectured us at fake or that like to make more money. How much? Actually, it's both. According to Bruce Schaller, he's a public transportation consultant here in New York. Do you think it's a good idea for New York? Yes. Reduced congestion the city because charge people some people will decide to take the bus to come in and said driving, and the Secondly, it raises very badly needed revenue for public transportation. We've had what we call a subway crisis for the trains are overcrowded. There's a lot of work to be done. And we need the funding to do that a lot of funding. It's estimated that New York will need to spend tens of billions of dollars to fix the subway system and congestion pricing has proven itself to be a really fast effective way to raise money says Bruce places like Singapore, and Stockholm do it London rolled out congestion pricing. And they've seen speeds increased by thirty percent checking in were just passing Grand Central station. We have been in. Cam for six minutes, not bad. It's been a nice, right? Honestly, making pretty good time. There's still plenty of details that need to get ironed out. Not least of which is just how much is this toll going to cost New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested a flat fee per car per day of about eleven or twelve bucks and twenty five dollars for trucks. But there will be some exemptions. The state has already approved breaks for emergency vehicles for people with disabilities and other groups are asking for exemptions. As well delivery truck drivers, livery cab drivers motorcyclists police officers, and that could really affect how much money the congestion pricing plan brings in and at least in Muhammad's view. If all these guys get exemptions. It's not gonna help traffic at all or raise much money. Right now, we're in a very familiar part of town right by the new York Public Library and Bryant park where the New York office of NPR's high indicate high NPR IMP are. Yeah. There's the shut the place the terrible music. Salad place. It has been fourteen minutes on the doc. Okay. Okay. In a we're making

An Interview with Fern Mallis, Former CEO of IMG and Co-Creator of New York Fashion Week

"My special guest today is for malice. She was the senior vice president at IMG. She also helped to create fashion week in New York, which has become an iconic and influential program in the worlds of fashion. So let's talk about before fashion week. What was the state of the fashion industry before this event existed, well before fashion week was formally created and organized centralized and modernized, which is what I like to say, we did there were fashion shows. I mean the industry had its biannual timetable to get its collections out in front of buyers. But it was a very very exclusive insider event if you weren't in the industry, you didn't know about it. If you went by building on seven. Avenue. You might think what's going on. There's a line outside getting in or something. If they were fifty shows there weren't fifty different locations, and nobody talked to each other. It was uptown downtown midtown. If somebody had a show in the Pierre hotel in the morning, they'd have to take everything down in the afternoon because somebody had a bar mitzvah there that night. And then somebody wanted to rent it again the next day you'd put it all back in there. It was a bit chaotic sounds complicated and expensive and complicated expensive. And it was it was at a time. When the American designers weren't really well known in reaching out to Europe. The the biggest European expansion was Calvin Klein, maybe doing fragrance. And I'm glad you brought that up because I'm now, my perspective on this is colored by pop culture and movies, like the devil wears Prada. But you very much get the sense that both Paris and Milan were much more structured and organized, or is that just truth, Paris and Milan where the that's where it was that will that's what it was about London. A little bit New York was somewhat of an afterthought, right? New York was treated as their last on the calendar. They're waiting to see what we do in Europe. And they're going to copy us, and it was it was crazy. So I had just been hired. This is back in ninety one. I was selected as the executive director of the CFDA after they did a very long search after I left the design universe of IDC. And why and all of that? Right. And there was this little organization the DA which had done a big aids benefit seventh on sale. And that's when I got involved with them and. I was hired as executive director. It was March of ninety one. And I believe that member exactly I was hired at the end of March. I didn't start till mid April. There was a market weak fashion week between Michael Kors had a show in an empty loft space in Chelsea. And when you turn the base music on in a space for a fashion show. It's very loud. And if things aren't nailed down, they tend to tremble the ceiling trembled and plaster started falling off from the ceiling and the ceiling literally was falling down on the runway. He'd broth rooftop while there you go. Brought the roof down and plaster was on the shoulders of meiomi and Cindy, and Linda and all the one named supermodels of the day. But they kept walking. Right. But when it landed in a lapse of Suzy Menkes from the International Herald Tribune, Carrie Donovan, the fashion critic at the New York Times, they wrote the next day we live for fashion. We don't want to die for it. Anybody and I looked at all that. And I said, I think my job description just changed and it big my job, then started immediately. When I got there to figure out a way to do safe sound places for the American designers do their runway shows. So the concept was let's get all this together in one place one location one week make it safe. Make it accessible make it more reasonable and more efficient amortize the costs for everybody. And so how did you end up finding your way to Bryant park, which if we're talking ninety one Bryant park was little seedy. Yeah. It was on it. It was in the last throes of its renovation the restaurant wasn't there. Right for people who are not familiar with this. Bryant park is basically the full city block behind the new York Public Library in the sixty seventies eighties. It was very much a haven for drugs right needle park. And I used to visit my dad's office on Madison Avenue, he would say if you come in and by train, don't go up fortieth street. And now my office on forty statements is pretty it's one of the most beautiful urban renovation jam ever a jewel of the city. It is it is a very very special place and the lawn there it was like the backyard to the garment center because it was a block away from seventh avenue. Broadway were all the showrooms where I was walking distance everything. There was lots of public transportation and subways block away from Times Square, two blocks from Grand Central. I mean, you don't get a better location Ryan park. It's pretty much smack. In the center of the city, you can get to it from anywhere easily. Yeah. And so we we began my job became find a place. So I was riding around New York. I've looked at every empty pier. Every big parking lot. Can we put tents up here? How big could we do this sand Herman who was the president of the offices? Actually, I'm a corner of fortieth and sixth overlooking Bryant park, and he was on the board of the community board there and work closely with Dan Biedermann, who I know you've interviewed right? He he. Business improvement, Sandra. We wound up eventually making a deal with with Dan and with Bryant park. It was literally the backyard to the to the industry people loved it there, and I used to again for people who may not have actually seen this, and you could find time lapse photography impressive. The part goes from this big open space. That's I don't know. Let's call it half a city block, and that's the lawn and suddenly a giant set tents go up and a little city. Now what they do is in the winter. There's a ice skating rink and a lodge that's temporary shops, right or well, they disappeared January fifteenth. So they're gonna ready, but you still have urban space there, and you still have the ice skating rink. But if you watched fashion week show up it was an amazing bit of logistics to build it. And then you could go see the video, and you don't really you. It's hard to imagine that this. Is temporary space when you see images from the fashion show. It always looks amazing. So how what was it like setting up that first one? He was pretty extraordinary. I mean, we had started I at the Macklowe hotel, which was then became the millennial hotel just to see if we can get more than three designers to do something together because their egos a such that nobody wants to do anything in the same space. But they realize genuine problem at the beginning. Absolutely. Was I I is there jockeying for Lawson. Every absolutely it's it's the war room with them with the slots and moving the posted Ceram till you got us calendar that that's the wedding where all sorts of crazy stuff, and you had to deal with that with much bigger egos.

But as it was a it was for conference, but he says that he paid for himself except for the domestic connections from his rural town that they ruled Tammy leaves into millburn to the capital to fly out and back again.
