We've been talking <Speech_Female> about a <Speech_Female> lot. It's a huge <Speech_Female> part of the economy <Speech_Female> in Nebraska <Speech_Female> especially the meat industry <Speech_Female> last <Speech_Female> week. President trump signed <Speech_Female> an executive order <Speech_Female> to keep meat plants <Speech_Female> open. <Speech_Female> There's been a lot of mixed <Speech_Female> responses <Speech_Female> to that and <Speech_Female> unions have been <Speech_Female> really concerned about <Speech_Female> the safety of <Speech_Female> workers. What <Speech_Female> are these companies <Speech_Female> in Grand Island <Speech_Female> doing to <Speech_Female> respond <Speech_Female> to that and <SpeakerChange> to keep <Speech_Female> their workers safe? <Speech_Female> They've started to implement <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> several <Speech_Female> new safety <Speech_Female> measures or <Speech_Female> enhanced safety <Speech_Female> measure that were already <Speech_Female> in place so <Speech_Female> bring in <Speech_Female> more <Speech_Female> cleaning crews <Speech_Female> and doing cleaning <Speech_Female> more often <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> using plexiglas <Speech_Female> dividers <Speech_Female> where they have <Speech_Female> workers <Speech_Female> in <Speech_Female> close quarters <Speech_Female> staggering <Speech_Female> lunchtimes <Speech_Female> and work <Speech_Female> shifts to try <Speech_Female> and give <Speech_Female> people more <Speech_Female> space when <Speech_Female> they are performing <Speech_Female> their jobs <Speech_Female> and then reconfiguring <Speech_Female> jobs <Speech_Female> where they can so <Speech_Female> that. Say <Speech_Female> in <Speech_Female> close quarters with someone <Speech_Female> before. Maybe <Speech_Female> there's Dido <Speech_Female> a longer <Speech_Female> wrench for instance <Speech_Female> if you're building <Speech_Female> a piece of combine <Speech_Female> that you can <Speech_Female> use so that <Speech_Female> you know you can <Speech_Female> be a few few <Speech_Female> more feet away from <Speech_Female> someone also <Speech_Female> temperature <Speech_Female> checks before people <Speech_Female> even get into <Speech_Female> facilities. <Speech_Female> That's that's been a big <Speech_Female> health measure. <Speech_Female> So I talked to <Speech_Female> Tim Shell <Speech_Female> Pepper.

"This is exactly the kind of chaos. This president has brought to bear on the crisis from the very beginning. Now that we've got over forty six thousand Americans dead because of it. The chaos at the top appears to be getting more chaotic not less tomorrow as members of Congress convene in Washington to pass that bill. Protesters are going to run a motorcade between the White House and the trump hotel in downtown Washington where they say they plan to dump bodybags at the threshold of the hotel. Seems about right right back. Hey It's Chris. As this week on my podcast wise is happening. I'll be talking with author. Rebecca solnit about the remarkable communities that get built amidst disaster. There are people organizing in most communities across the country and doing other forms of it in other countries to figure out. How do we take care of each other in the context of not being able to physically be with each other in ordinary ways? And it's just extraordinary. Seeing both the intensity of this desire to help people you may never meet and the creativity in figuring out how to do it and that is a really important part of who human beings are in times like this that I think is always dormant latent within us it. It's as though it finds fertile soil to grow on in these moments this week on wise's happening search for wise is happening wherever you're listening right now and subscribe update for you on a story. We've been following this week out of Waterloo Iowa where large local a large meat packing plant has been the site of one of the worst corona virus outbreaks in the country on Monday. We had the sheriff of Black Hawk County where that Tyson Foods. Plant located here on the show Talk about the fact that he and other city and county officials had been pleading with the company that runs that Plant Tyson foods. And also with Iowa's Republican governor to please please close down that meat packing plant in Waterloo. Sheriff Tony Thompson told us on Monday night quote. That plant is the biggest hole in our county defense right now. It's creating risks to the entire population of my county when I spoke with Sheriff Thompson on Monday night. Black Hawk County had three hundred fifty. Six confirmed corona virus cases as of today. They're up to five hundred and eleven cases. That's the most of any county in Iowa. At least forty percent of those cases are tied directly to that. Tyson Foods. Plant starting to see obituaries. People who worked at that plant In the local paper will today after days and days of local officials putting pressure on the company and Republican Governor Tyson. Finally today announced that it is closing that plant in Waterloo Iowa indefinitely. Waterloo's mayor had been calling for that alongside the sheriff. He told CNN today that he welcomed the decision but he believes it may have come too late to stop the widespread the widespread spreading of that virus in his town. The Black Hawk County. Sheriff Tony Thompson told us this tonight about the plant finally closing. He said quote while we are pleased with this development. We recognize how late it is for many now. Our task is to react to the damage done and to get back on top of monitoring and testing without overrunning our healthcare system. So that's the update on the situation in rural Black Hawk. County Iowa tonight sort of a better late than never From the officials who've been calling for that plant to be shut down hundreds of cases there at least that one corona virus locus. That one plant is is closed today at Iowa but I have to tell you in neighbouring Nebraska. It's a different story at least eight. Meat Processing Plant in Nebraska have confirmed corona virus cases including one really really big outbreak. At least two hundred and thirty seven cases of Corona virus now tied to one beef plant in Grand Island Nebraska Grand Island's the third largest city in Nebraska the cases tied to that one beef plant in Grand Island count for more than forty percent of all cases in that area but neither that plant in grand island or any of the other Nebraska meat packing plants with confirmed cases has been closed and Nebraska remains one of the few states in the country without any kind of stay at home order. In recent days the rate of corona virus cases around Grand Island Nebraska has been higher than some of the hardest hit states in the country higher than Michigan's like it says in this headline close to Louisiana. There are now over six hundred confirmed cases and eighteen deaths in the grand island Nebraska area including four deaths reported just in the past day grand island's mayor and the local health director have been asking. Nebraska's governor Pete Ricketts for a stay at home order but he has refused. Local health. Director has warned that the healthcare system around Grand Island very close to being swamped. She said two days ago quote going into a rather dark couple of weeks soon. Join US now. Is that health. Director Theresa Anderson is the Health Department director Nebraska's central district. The central district is is right in the middle of that state about a two hour. Drive away from Omaha Miss Anderson. Thank you so much for time to US tonight for US tonight. I know you have a lot to deal with and it's a very busy time. Thank you Rachel for having any rights for having let me just ask I if I characterized things accurately as far as you know and if there's any other important developments that we should know about in terms of this. What appears to be a pretty sizable outbreak in and around Grand Island at the outbreak. is associated to some degree with the acting industry. But there a lot of factors that go into determining how severity outbreak in kids. We're getting a sort of a echo effect on your on your audio. I'm not sure if there's anything we can do to adjust that I know that's technically this is always. This is always a challenge to do these things. I can hear you though and let me just ask you. Oh let me seems like that might be better. Okay good I the great all right let me just ask you I. It has been unusual. I think I expected watching this from afar. That some of the facilities where there's been a large number of cases associated with an individual workplace that those might have been closed but as far as I understand it no meat packing plants in Nebraska have been closed including this one in grand island where there are a large number of cases so it the way that it's been evolving. Is that our plant? Here in Grad island has been. I'm going to say ahead of the game at least time wise and the number of cases.

"Out to Richard at Grand Island within those seven Chevy equinox what you got there Richard what's this we've added to the dealership and they pretty much gone through it and they feel that it is the head gasket and I want to get your opinion and see what you thought about all right when this is over he Richard it's about every three to four days okay describe describe you started out cold in the morning and what happens you could drive it for a day or two like I said up to three to four days and then it will overheat even at the dealership they had at for a few days it was around one nine ninety seven one ninety five all the time and eventually one of the day that they were driving around and went to two forty eight and a debt over he aha intermittent top us saying it is it low on cool went when it overheats no it's not Dave pressurize the system due to predatory leaks there are no leaks back in the system and I've been backing some fire out of it so they believe that it is the head gasket and that is putting the exhaust gas into the cooling system yeah this hard to it you know what the ones that I usually get like this are usually the Duramax diesels those are usually the ones that we wind up with it now when they did the vacuum tested it sucked the hoses then after the engine cool down that I can't tell your name I don't yeah they just know that they back in the order yeah now there is another test and did they do any well what's called a block test where they actually checked for hydrocarbons yes Sir they did and they come back negative yes Sir yeah Richard I'm gonna tell you they're probably right it probably is the head gasket but if not if the head gasket was what if you had a failed head gasket you have this problem constantly I'm gonna tell you what you probably have you probably either have a stretched the goal or is there a head bolt that may have broken and it's lost its tension on the head gasket and when that happens what happens is is that temperature well I actually have a big play on when the head gasket seals and when it does what engine do you have in the US that's a three point four liter V. six three four those were well known for breaking head balls I'll tell you this you could actually Google that and and it will it will have on there the was one that you would get at broken head ball they were very very common you know those are stretched two year old you'll pour come down to a certain foot pounds and then you will actually turn say sometimes forty five degrees on top of whatever the torque is and that bolt will stretch and and that's how it keeps clamping force and sometimes I hit ball in just lose it you know it extension and it'll cause a problem like this I will do is see that that motor uses a tri metal head gasket so it's really hard to make that head gasket leak unless you lose the clamping force or the cylinder head crack I bet you if a guy was to take the time and if there's room I don't know if there's room or not if a guy can actually replace those head bolts of that motor one at a time I'll bet it would fix that problem without pulled ahead tell me that he's making very good that's very good bit of a person can remove those adults wanted to turn it towards the noon in torque the new head bolts wanted sound a bit it would fix the problem the only thing that you could run into is if one of those headphones were broken and then you pull out of my head ball so you're still one of the people in the head but if the if the bolts would come out you know what they would loosen up and you could remove a person could possibly get in there and actually we're you don't fix that problem without pulling the heads and because metal head gaskets it when the metal head gasket I'd say you're you're no you the party's over you haven't got a prayer but the metal head gaskets you know the only thing that they can really do is lose the clamping force Hey nothing ventured nothing gained you just tore correctional center head bolts and spend a couple afternoons I don't see what happened Richard that's worth a shot there and then you can go from there good stuff there Richard good stuff Larry eight four four two two zero zero nine six five we've got can calling back there he's got an update for you here at the Volvo can what's going on all right yeah thanks for contacting you Sam you're welcome I detect the fan motor on the on the mobile and it does tornadoes spent but you were saying it should be like a jet engine Israel I don't I don't get that out of it all I can hear them fan the back of it yeah I'll I will bet you one of two things is happening either that fan motors gone bad or yeah there is a control module that that operated that Sudan and and let me tell you what happens here that that that control module has two speeds now one of them will just kind of come on and off as the engine needs a little bit of cooling down but when you turn the AC on that they should be Europe and can actually be a really difference yeah now whether its engines are AC on or off the same speed yeah see what see what happens is when you turn the AC on that condenser that's in front of your radiator that thing gets hot as a firecracker and you've got a hand pulling across the it at you know you really got to have your point across because if you don't what will happen is the head pressure goes up so high the pressure switch to safety pressure switch on the system hi this DAC all state I don't think you got anything wrong with that you see right now but what will happen is if a person keeps running it like that you'll have pressure relief valves going off and everything else just to keep from below and set them apart because there's just not enough air coming across that condenser right now you need to get this cooling fans situation worked out and you'll be fine but you don't wanna you don't want to mess around with it because you will call some detrimental damage to the air conditioning system but if you were to go and put a great big sign in front of that car I made a big fan you know one in bigger around fans turn it on and have that just blowing through your deck on air conditioning system with a car sitting around idle in park it never give your problem because you've got enough air blowing across the dag gone into answer but just as soon as you take it away then that had pressure on AC systems going to keep continually climbing so it gets into the danger zone and then of course it it has to do something I really just below the system apart if you need any help with that can we open on Monday we get down there and we'll double check what we're talking about make sure that's what is going on and find out whether it is the fan or whether the control module has lost the high speed signal to control that fan but those are the two things that need to be looked at right now nice and yeah we are getting breaking news president trump is speaking from the White House now the White House coronavirus task force speaking out still there we're gonna put the show on hold for just a moment we'll join them live no governor Andrew Cuomo of New York mention that they were getting some ventilators and said I think it thousand of them we'll see if he mentions that president trump also did meet with all the commissioners of the major sports conferences earlier today I guess on a conference call so we'll see if he has an update on what happened in that call we will now go to the White House live here on news ninety six point five W. D. BO getting under way again expressing our support solidarity and love for the people of our great country we're fighting for you and we're been during all of this together and we will soon prevail together I get a lot of progress we appreciate all of the great assistance from the governor's and people within the states the relationships have been really very good I spoke with governor Cuomo were working very hard to get additional things to New York as quickly as possible we as you know we the care the hospital including personnel lost two thousand five hundred beds that we built just recently Javits including personnel and we open it up to code and that says something that we also did a Louisiana and do it doing it in Dallas so we have a lot of not only hospitals being built but now we're manning the hospitals because states here in many cases unable to get additional people to work it's it's just an incredible situation it's never been anything like this one of the most important issues in battling this pandemic is coordinating the delivery of the crucial supplies throughout the nation based upon the most accurate information available and we've got the best health care and disaster experts anywhere in the world and everybody will tell you that and we're dealing with big parts of the world and helping them also through this horrible situation where a hundred and fifty one still a hundred and fifty one nations are going through it well working to ensure that the supplies are delivered where and when they're needed in some cases would tell governors we can't go there because we don't think you need it we think someplace else needs it then pretty much so far we've been right about that and we'll continue to do it as it really gets this would be probably the toughest week between this week and next week then they'll be a lot of death unfortunately but a lot less death death and if this wasn't done but they will be death we're looking for an obvious focus and the hardest hit regions with some of the more obvious and some aren't so obvious they spring up they come in the they hit you like you got hit by a club that wasn't at all bothered you look at what's going on in New Jersey the governor is doing an excellent job by the way but how that sprang up every decision that were made that will make it is made to save lives it's really a sole consideration we want to save lives we want as few lives lost as possible it is therefore critical that certain media outlets stop spreading false rumors and creating fear and even panic with the public well it's just incredible I could name but same ones are always the same ones I guess they're looking for ratings I don't know what they're looking for so bad for our country and so bad that people understand it is you look at the levels and approval ratings are the lowest they've ever been the media is so bad for the for our country so bad for the world Hey at a put it together for a little while to get this over with and then go back to your fitness during an actual emergency it's just essential that the federal decision makers cut through the fog of confusion in order to follow the facts and the science many hospital administrators that we've been in touch with even in the really hot spots you know what they are a communicating directly with us that their level of supplies are meeting essential needs and at the current time there really thrilled to be where they are whatever local shortages are reported were asking states to immediately meet the demand that and were stockpiling large amounts in different areas in different areas that we're gonna be discussing that in a little while but we want distributions to be made on a fair basis we have to take care of a large country not just certain areas of the country that but no matter where we were we've been there and we've been there very strong I want to thank fame I want to thank the army corps of engineers I want to thank our military for what they're doing and we're going to be adding a tremendous amount of military to to help supplement the states thousands of soldiers thousands of thousands.

"Struggled with just the timing of the double clutching. I knew how to drive a stick shift. Most of my car has had been but the double clutching is about timing. And they don't let you float gears in school. You have to do by book and so the timing was off uncertain years in thought went. You're just you're just ninety. You just not up to par. You're not getting it. And I had to advocate and say you don't know me. This is one chapter of my life that you're coming in on but I've been with me my whole life and I know that this is not insurmountable so if you give me a little more time I'm GonNa get this and so they ended up giving me more time and then I came in and finished. I am totally making it. My mission to build the number of female drivers that are in the industry so one of the other people. We talked to Grand Island. Is Kyle Huizen draper recruiter at Grand Island Express and when we meet in the lobby? Kyle is wearing this shirt that says the future is female. I am tonight. You Grand Island the BRASSICA. That's statement. I have to admit though like I just moved to the area from Omaha like a couple of months ago and I was like you know what? There's no better time for me to really bust out to them and So many people that are like. Oh my God. I love your shirt when I started. Driving in the seventies female truckers were a rare sight. That's changed somewhat. You know this is still a very male dominated industry. Only eight percent of drivers are women and just from my background. I actually was recruiter at an all women's college prior to this so for me you know I said well. This is a huge area that we're not really tapping into or we could basically you know own this because as a company we actually have ten percent of our drivers that are female. I should say this push for female. Drivers is not just about a feel good to virtually thing. You may have noticed out on the road that a lot of trucks have. We're hiring signs on them. That's because there's a lot of turnover in the industry and trucking companies are always trying to find new people. I mean the studies out there. That women are coming into the workforce and they're looking for jobs that aren't traditional and I don't think the women in the industry are GonNa Bounce through jobs the same as some of the men. Do THEY WANNA find a place that they can come on and they can stay and they can. Actually you know. Call that their home. So the fact that there's over two hundred thousand ladies out here and you see more and more is very encouraging. Here's our friend can yet again. Especially when you see someone blitz say like myself who just looks like a regular person and so I could still have you know my boots would low heels and you know these cute little jeans and how some earrings on and some jewelry. I could bring my identity to trucking and not let trucking shaped my identity and I think it's important to keep moving forward and not be afraid to dream. Big Part of that dream is ownership owning her own truck and being aroma boss road independence fast and it just happens that the day we visit she starting class on how to become what we call it on our operator and you can make more money as on operator. But there's also more cost more responsibility and a lot more risk fluctuate. That's when the class go over in detail what you expect to pay. Just taken the the cost of tires in averaging it out monthly new tires for a tractor trailer alone can run up towards seven thousand dollars. Let's say conservatively up. One hundred and their fuel maintenance ears health insurance truck insurance all of that adds up of course so the class turns to how much money they should set aside for every mile they drive now. I've I've heard you know at a minimum of ten cents a mile for some reason. They turned to me for advice. Think Oh you do not want to do that. I I am not an expert drugs. Nineteen seventy nine. I don't let these grey hairs make you think I'm wise. The class wraps up for lunch and for Kenya. Sky Is still the limit in trucking. I need to make so it's not like oh I'm just gonNA drive my goodness and by the way you happen to pay me to driving this truck. No I'm fifty. You GotTa make time you know work for me because you know it's later than it's ever been on. The Sun is going down. My former pastor said what makes other's caves seems to only energize her so I realized in this industry if you WanNa make more money And have some more freedom than you need to have your truck and this is a wonderful timing for you because this is the actual anniversary may seventeen two thousand eighteen. We're actually got in the truck to drive for the first time ever. Yes a year ago this same date that I went out with my trainer so one year later. I'm having this conversation about. How can maybe get my truck but with the freedom of ownership often comes a price. After the break we meet up with jared the bowl haller we met at the truckstop jared's path and a trucking was completely different from Kenya and now eight years into his career as an owner operator. He has a lot to say about it sometimes. Overnight grass is green on the other side offense at the septic tank Lincoln. That night we go to visit. Jared setlow beer. You like a beer. I love him. Yeah we meet in. His shop re parks and works on his truck. Jared is the polar opposite of Kenya for one thing. He was born into this long as I can remember your grandma's home and I just wanted to go sit in his truck didn't have to be doing anything. Just just wanted to be in a truck. Finally let me drive. You know grandma a bunch a milk cartons and when I come back through those He'd let me learn the the forward gears. Jared was thirteen the first time he drove his GRANDPA's rig taken a trailer out to Denver. Grandpa was napping in the back and told jared awaken up before they got to the waystation. Us trying to wake him up before Morgan throwing shoes at him. Try to wake him up. He wouldn't wake up and taking truck across the skill at thirteen years old for you. You had for tracks.

Large parts of the U.S. could see tornadoes, hail, high winds this weekend

"Yeah, we're gonna have a widespread severe out break here later this Friday afternoon through Friday night in the Saturday. Let's start with the Friday afternoon, Friday night time period Sioux Falls, South Dakota grand island. Nebraska, those are the areas of southwestern parts of Minnesota will be in the very widespread area of large hail tornado flooding downpour and damaging wind potential. Little more isolated as you get a little farther south through central Kansas into Oklahoma, panhandle of Texas. But in Lubbock and down into the big men around the, the coastal. I'm sorry. The Big Ben to the Rio Grande. Those are areas that will be widespread also today, and then we shift that farther to the east on Saturday and Saturday night and it's lined up from eastern Iowa down through the architects, and into Austin and San Antonio large hail, damaging winds and possibility of tornadoes.
