"We now have passed the two hundred, thousand person milestone. Desk from coronavirus. Anthony Fauci is called the stunning. Obviously, very upsetting. What's what's your react with reaction to this? I think it's troubling whether we're looking in the Review Mirror at the past six six, almost seven months now, and how did we get to two hundred thousand and I don't know a public health expert who believes that that number should not be significantly lower. you know this is a deadly virus. Of course, you're going to lose some people but you know the president's handling of it is the number one issue in the Campaign Supreme Court pick not withstanding and so I think in the rear view mirror it is sad sobering numbing I do these numbers every day and I stay up at night crunching them looking for changes in the trends and I don't pretend to be a scientific expert but it is it's depressing So two hundred, thousand Americans that's grand rapids. Michigan. That Salt Lake City Utah at Huntsville Alabama just wiped off the map just just gone. In seven months, six months really before when the first death. If you think about that, it's just it.

Every one of those numbers is a person it's your brother, your sister, your son or your daughter, your neighbor, your friend, your colleague. The numbers can get the numbers get so big sometimes I think we kind of IMP de personalized them or impersonal is them well, we can't do that and I don't care what your politics are. We should never do that and I it is it painful looking backwards jevon mortuary. But when you looking forward we're heading we're we're right now going back up. So. That means more infections and that inevitably means more deaths the doctors will tell you they're better at treating this now. So the you know the death rate would not be as high as it was back at the peak of all this but still especially. When the all the experts tell you, it is preventable. Any is a crime.

"We live in Grand Rapids, Michigan area. But I'm impressed when a business goes out of their way to honor veterans talk to us about that event. You guys were planning which It's not just a one off. This is AH, honoring our veterans has been a or founding principle of our company. My father, David Monitor served in the army. My brother Ben is an Army Ranger as well served in 10th Mountain. And so this is something we've done year after year after year In every single one of our locations. We have three stores in Ohio. And every year we have done that one of the things that we do, and whenever a veteran joins us in one of our stores, we bang a big gong in every single associate in the company stops whatever they are doing, and they have come to that veteran and they thinking for their service. We give them a challenge Coin. Take a picture. We post them on the wall of honor, and then we we give them an invitation to that celebration that we hold every year around Veterans Day this year, obviously, with Kobe 19. It's been a bit of a challenge. We're trying to figure out how to do that. Do it safely. So the part of the white caps here in Grand Rapids and minor league baseball team they've come to table with a tremendous amount of assistance. We're actually going to use 5th 3rd ballpark. We figured if we can't get socially distance there, we've got bigger problems. So we're gonna be out of the White Caps Stadium 5th 3rd Stadium October 11th where you were sending invitations to every single veteran that has been in our store since our two years of operation here. We're going to invite them out. We're gonna have a keynote speaker. We're goingto have events for Children. Goingto have all the Veterans Service is reaching out to every single volunteer group, The veteran's home, Everybody that is tied in any way, shape or form with our veterans community. We're gonna reach out to them, ask them to be present so that veterans have a one stop shop where they can reach out and get registered for various services and programs that support them. And last year we gave out almost $50,000 in furniture to our veterans. That's just something that when I first started talking to my brothers about coming on board, it was just truly one of things that tipped the scales for me that that type of commitment to giving back to those men and women that have served our country with something just so proud of my brothers and my father for having done throughout the company's existence. And I want to be a part of that. That's awesome. For those of you who live or have friends in or near Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Is God the same in the Old and New Testaments?
"The first question is from Nancy. In? Michigan? Hi I'm Nancy from Grand Rapids Michigan. Thank you for this excellent series. Here's my question. My son grew up in the church but has been questioning his faith at times. He Sees God is being contradictory in appears to be emotionally abusive at times. In one of your podcast, you mentioned that Jesus is the full orb portrait of God. If people don't see this, they are either misunderstanding God or Jesus or both. What exactly would you say people are misunderstanding about the God of the Old Testament and? The New Testament. Thanks great question. Yeah. I felt like this is a question that a Lotta people have a lot of people resonate wish up here. I have found. We all have talked about this all three of us at some point that it's actually. A more regular experience that I found in pastoral ministry when are coming to own their faith or they're just exploring it to try and take it more seriously, and they just read the actual Bible as opposed to rely on the versions of the stories that they were given through teaching or something. There's a whole phase usually of the Bible creating all these problems for people actually John you lived there for quite some time. So this is a very common issue. The portrait of God is complex. Yeah. and difficult to process, and I just thought you doing a character of God series and I think Nancy in her son is experienced probably represent where a lot of us have been or are in this moment it's especially hard when you are reading say the psalms and you just want some real feel good like. worshipful contemplative things and dishonest psalmist are talking about a really retaliatory or oh, sure. Angry God. That does at times strike you as is this abusive is gone too far and when you can pull those out and you're confronted with those. That's a total. Yeah. I've experienced that same feeling. Yep. Yeah. Yeah. She is as though word or her son I guess emotionally abusive at times. It seems like that topic of the violence of God or violent depictions of God. In the Old Testament, especially is really hard to deal with and I guess for me when I think about questions like this for myself or for other people, it seems really important to acknowledge that their space to ask those questions in their space within even the Christian tradition to not know the answers to those things like to just recognize that a Lotta people think differently about these issues like some people read the Old Testament and think this is. An ancient document that you knows written by by ancient authors who were accommodating or God was accommodating their culture and their style of communication or God was actually accommodating and how he acted within history or they're just a lot of different ways that we can. We can read and interpret scripture and I. Guess. It's just helpful for me to recognize the that they're space within the Christian tradition to ask these kind of questions and think about how we interpret. But will said on both those points. So however, you know there are there are ways to get an angle to make some forward. Movement Yep isn't our understanding This is kind of surprising perspective that I find keeps helping me process this and it has to do with the composite mosaic character of the Bible. So you know these texts emerge from if you if you take the Hebrew Bible but then add the new. Testament on, we're talking about over a millennium long process of the collection and shaping of these texts and sewed the Biblical text, incorporate stories poems and laws and. All kinds of stuff from all these periods of Israelite history and experience but they have been brought Organiz together with patterns in a message and so on. So that's what our whole how to read the Bible series about but it does create a challenge because when I encounter like you John. Charissa. And we worked together and we see each other on a regular basis and pretty much. You know your behavior is consistent from day to day and you start to build up a portrait over time of like Oh. Here's how Chris is. This is her character that I infer from your behavior. And then let's say you get to know somebody long enough and they'll be. Something extreme that happens and then they'll be some new aspect of their character and like Whoa ow that's I didn't see that and so there is something kind of analogous like that to the Bible but it's actually more complex because it wasn't all written at one go. And so the way God behaves in one story and the way got as than another store. He'll. He'll like judge a whole city and destroy it but then he'll forgive a murderer like cain and you're like what? What's the deal and so we have to do with and what Christians have struggled to do is in adopting the Hebrew scriptures. Putting them alongside the stories of Jesus the writings of the apostles we have this huge project of synthesis that lay before us of how to create. A Mosaic Portrait of God's character out of all of these pieces from different times and places, and I think that's essentially the challenge is. Is Finding the the continuity and so what we're emphasizing the series is that the your way of the Hebrew Bible is actually a lot more generous, gracious and compassionate than most people tend to think what we are not focusing on but which is true is that Jesus is actually a lot more aggressive and intense and judgmental. Then people often make him out to be He certainly didn't get crucified for telling people to love your neighbor. You Got, crucified for critiquing publicly the religious and political authorities of his day, and he was very intense with them. And said, they were going to be destroyed. So I think part of it is we also need to learn how to augment this Old Testament is angry god New Testament is the loving Jesus caricatures don't do justice to either. So the two factors that have been helpful for me as I go into think about individual texts
Ben Talsma from Blue Apple Teacher: Purpose and Project Based Learning
"I noted that you are a learning solutions specialist so I wanna find out what that means. Oh. That's a great question to be honest with you. I have not given a whole lot of thought to my specific job title but reflecting on it just a little bit right now I think that maybe one of the keys to it is that I'm not. A learning solutions, specialists, learning solutions, specialists, and I work with teachers and school districts all around and help them come up with different solutions to their various educational issues or problems an. I think it's important to remember that there's not one specific way. There's not one specific path there. So many different teachers, different schools, different circumstances, and it's really important as we think about improving education to explore what works best in different environments so My job in a nutshell is trying to have a positive impact on education. It's a wonderful wonderful thing and I enjoy the the diversity of that experience and I I enjoy feeling waking up in the morning of feeling like you're you're having a positive impact in the world. I. Think that's Great. I'm it what I really love about what you said. It's just acknowledging that there are so many different kinds of issues in different kinds of teachers in every school is different just like all of our students are different in it's not a one size fits all application of whatever we're doing for students. It's the same thing with our schools and our teachers, and so they they all need to be honored for their differences as well and approached in that way. So that sounds great. Outstanding. So. Let's see a little bit more about self and my occupation I worked for the Vandal Institute for Education. is a nonprofit organization here in Grand Rapids Michigan and. Amanda is pretty broad a we are supposed to have a positive impact on education in America, and so we've assembled a a merry band of talented teachers and we get together on a daily basis and do some hardcore collaboration about the different initiatives that we can launch, which will accomplish that objective. So lots of different hats that you wear here although I don't have a classroom on a day-to-day basis on. Kinda out of that day to day grind I still get to work with students we bring students in from all around the area and a lot of different capacities. We do field trips where students come. Here we go. There we do after school programs, summer camps, but the gist of all of them is that we liked fellow really highly engaging kind of world-class experiences that help these kids fall in love with learning especially fall in love with science and scientific. Discovery. And we help them discover how to construct their own understandings. So we do lots of things which are really inquiry oriented, which capitalize on student curiosity and forced them to do a lot of real rigorous thinking. So for example, tomorrow I'm bringing a group of kindergarten through fifth graders in here and we are going to work together to engineer a solution to a pipeline leak using all sorts of different materials to. Reflect on what works what doesn't eatery upon their kind of previous versions and hopefully come up with something. Great. That sounds like so much fun in something that the kids are really GonNa enjoy is that something that then do you model that for the teachers? Do they come in with the students in the new model it so that they can do those kinds of things back in their classrooms or? Is it just an experience that they have when they come in? That's a great question. We actually bring in teachers as well. One of the richest forms of professional development for teachers is to see things in practice with their own kids. So when those teachers come in with their kids on a field trip, they could see these really high quality lessons working with their kids and gives them a lot of. Confidence that we can work with the specific students who they have in front of them on a day to day basis, and it also kind of them see what really rich pedagogical approach looks like right there in the flesh. So yeah, we have student program side of things. I spent actually more time working with teachers. So again, get connect with a fun and fabulous teachers all around the country and think. About what their challenges are want to listen to teachers and be responsive to what they're interested in and what they're struggling with, and so we collaborate together we leveraged their experience, their expertise, their wisdom, and mutually develop approaches to solving their challenges that are that are beneficial, and that's a really valuable and really rewarding process. As you probably know, it's also super hard to get a move teacher practice. There's so many. Obstacles to that a lot of inertia right. It's a great big battleship. It doesn't. It doesn't turn on a dime. There's a lot of issues with teachers not having enough time to implement the changes that they want. The money are just being a comfortable things having all these systems built up that prevent them from teaching the way that they want to. One of our big challenges is thinking about reflecting on how can we really help move the needle on teacher professional practice? How can we do things like provide ongoing support provide coaching maybe provide teachers with some structure or some scaffolds some supports that will help them make steps in the direction that they want to. I think that's the big thing is that whether they're taking big steps or small steps, we help teachers take bold steps in the directions that they want to go in order to really transform their students
MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues
"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts.

They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me.

The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101
New Trump Campaign ad Looks Bad For Trump
"Donald Trump is in a lot of dead, so it's very unlikely that he actually outright owns anything, but he does love to own himself, and that's the case with the latest campaign ad you put out. Let's take a look. You have reached the nine one one police emergency line due to defunding of the police department. We're sorry, but no one is here to take your call. If you're calling to report a rape, please press one to report a murder press to to report a home invasion press three for all other crimes. Leave your name and number and someone will get back to. You are estimated. Wait. Time is currently five days goodbye. Now if that adds scares, you and you wouldn't WanNa live in the type of country that would have those types of scenes of. And Destruction! You should probably vote trump out of office because all of that footage happened under trump's watch. In fact, all the footage used in that ad was from March and I'll give you. Those details I'm sorry may of this year and I'll give you those details in just a moment, but also one of trump's campaign advisers Boris. Epstein also shared a similar video. NOT THAT AD itself. But in that video you see the violence and the destruction, and he says this would be Joe Biden's America. It's a very scary place except it's happening right now, and it's in trump's America. And I want you to remember what he said during came action. Because if you say wow, I, mean look. They're protesting. The saints that have happened recently police abuse. Yeah, well, trump had four years to fix it, and he didn't. He actually loves when police abuse African American citizens. Why after George Floyd? Floyd, but let's remember to protect the real victims here the confederate flag. And military bases named after confederate heroes so. Yeah he? There's a reason why those things are happening. Even the worst of most of them are overwhelmingly peaceful protests. Of the rioters and looters are because of Donald Trump's complete and utter indifference this issue, so that is trump's America but back. Then when he was accepting the nomination, he said the crime and violence that today our nation will soon. I mean very soon come to an end beginning on.

He has violated the emoluments clause of our Constitution over and over and over again he loves crime. He bathes in crime. But he he uses law and order as a dog whistle and a lot of ways. No no way since one hundred percent right and so the slogan is no justice, no peace and that's almost exactly what's happened during the trump era, there's no justice at all the real criminals.

Are you holding back? Are you holding? America hostage until your second term, and then you will magically fixing who could believe such preposterous things? He obviously is in over.

Sculpture Park at the Frederick Meyer location who is overseeing this brand new exhibit honoring the works. Of George Segal. And I think George Segal really came to the forefront of the average person who maybe wasn't following art world history in the making with his unique work. When the time magazine featured his work on the cover. I was a big thing, and so why don't we focus a little bit, you know, hidden on what? What is it? Exactly? That is the magnet that should attract people to this particular exhibit in Grand Rapids, Michigan, right? Well, two things on I appreciate your humor. The way you set the stage. You talked about the plaster and he used his medical bandages right? And he would create, you know, plaster plaster sculptures out of out of this very sort off. You know, medical, the medical practice right, which with people, which people used to Teo fix, fix. Ah, broken arm and and and so he created something out of that That was unique. And he was extremely creative and inventive and doing that, And I also you know, I remember his work going to museums in Europe. I mean, I was what I was going to those museums in Dusseldorf in Cologne and what not, and I was always like so intrigued by the kind of simplicity off how he would translate. You know that the human figure into something, you know, artistic and so When I looked at How can How can I represent Siegel? What can I do? But can I show it? Oh, there's also different. I realized that Not only was he such a such an innovative sculptor, he was also actually a very, very good painter. And you know, early on in his career, he was looking at pulses on and Ali Matisse and he was emulating those artists and In this exhibition, you can see, for instance, in one painting how is working through this European modernism and then and then and then how he transformed that in sculpture and went beyond it in sculpture, and it became something very guess you could say American, and it's kind of hands on have everyday kind of raw, raw appearance s O. We have all of that in the show you see and work in You know, with this sort of more modern color palette and at the same time, then you know, you see him working with this new material, the plaster, the plaster material and how he created the human human recreated the human body in plaster. Well, how many pieces are there? Actually in this exhibit? And our Are these all outdoors? No. So this is an indoor exhibition. We have specials. Culture galleries to show like things like those cultures that you would that are not in a In a condition that they can't be sure because you put that plaster things in the raid will melt their way we do about Segal. We do have a single outdoors. That's a bronze bronze. It can go outdoors. All right. So how many people are there altogether? They also there are about 10 sculptures, and they're about 32 dimensional pieces. So the two really kind of compliment each other on DH. I thought that was really the most exciting aspect. To see to see you know his his engagement with the human body and in all these different media Well, I want to share just as we're wrapping up the last of this today show. Um I want to say a special shout out to all of our fans and listeners and those of you driving around beautiful Michigan to direct you to the Frederick Meyer.

So I'm gonna try and trade a little carefully here. But I did think it was very interesting yesterday during this this Magar rally that Donald Trump is holding his first one since the molar report came out and and the summary. We got from the attorney general's office. He's onstage at rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan. And he said something that you don't really say. Well, let's put it this way. I would never say it around my grandma. The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit. Three years of lies and smeared. All right. So that that got me thinking, by the way, the crowd loved it when he actually pause while speaking there the crowd just went nuts. They they loved him. You know, saying dick euless bullshit. All right. I'm going to tell you even the fixed version makes me a little uncomfortable. Just because you know, I this is a radio show. Right. And so I I by the way, I fixed it, okay? The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous both hockey. That's better. I think I think with ridiculous vote hockey. So there you go that's more like my grandma was. So is this a coarsening of the discourse is this is this just Donald Trump being Donald Trump is this just him speaking like we speak. You know, I try not to say those words around my kids. But those words fall out of my mouth from time to time. They do it happens. And is he just being real is he just being himself? I don't know. But you know, I when I heard Ruben guy go the US Representative from Phoenix dropping f-bomb during a campaign rally this past fall. I call him out for it. I said I don't think I've ever heard congressman ever say something like that from the stage. And I know I've never heard a president say something like this. I know they say all those things behind closed doors to their aids and two members of congress, especially when they're not getting their way on legislation. Right. But is this is this something different? And I I know. I don't know. It's I'll tell you. What though I saw one Trump supporter on Twitter yesterday saying I was stuck in home opener. Traffic last night and miss this moment. Trump on loads on the ridiculous. Bowl vote hooky. Yeah. That's it. Thank you.

Election, night just before twenty sixteen you know you were the only program that had not given up. Hope on Trump it was it seemed like you're the only person. Anywhere who still, had faith he might. Win and that was, great now To my. Point What do we do as Republicans to To incite somewhat of a riot if you. Will at the at the polling, booths and I don't mean a riot obviously what need. Is a I know what. You, mean I know what you mean, yeah to, to get the people in you know I'm looking at. The numbers of the votes and everything The Democrats versus. Republicans, and the Democrats are coming out, in number, I agree with what you say this time of year It's. Kind of a, toss up but I do know I've, been around well let's stick with one thing at a time here you've so you you put things on the table. A we need to somehow light a fire under Republicans to get them to realize how important it is to. Turn out I'm sitting here saying if they don't know Then it's over how in the world do. You know they, can see what's going on every day, they can see what's being done to the guy they voted for how can anybody not know what's at stake this. Boggles my mind but the second thing is Use you turn, out numbers and I've seen this too I've, seen it in a. Couple of places that the democrat turned out was ninety percent, drive visor say wow look at that enthusiasm you never see ninety percent in over here they say the Republican turnout was forty percent maybe fifty percent and yet in, every race the Republicans have one does anybody? Really believe that ninety. Percent of Democrats turned out I mean come. On so why aren't? They winning in landslide you realize what ninety percent. Turn out that doesn't happen in presidential years ninety percent turnout would equal landslide no matter what especially if, the, Republicans are only forty. Or fifty I don't care how many more. Republicans there are in each of these districts, they're not they were not all so Republican, heavy that despite a. Ninety percent democrat turnout the Republicans still win what is this I I. Agree I, agree this. Is the only thing the only thing? That concerns me and that is I've. Been around long enough voting that. I realized when we have power we don't one. Way are in power I should say that we. Get complacent that's because our candidates disappointed us that's not happening this time I. Could not. Agree with you more except well wait wait wait wait a minute wait a, minute wait a minute. Wait a minute Maybe I'm wrong here maybe individual Republican. Members of congress are disappointing voters particularly those who are not. Really really pedal to the metal supporting Trump, do, what, he, wants, to do that. That could be. A factor have. To admit that Yeah I I hope that's not the. Case but yeah that. That to me is the top concern is how, complacent have we become and I, I don't think complacency I this is where this is why separate from the field here I don't think we're talking about complacency Remember we have this this this statistic That has been born out it's a it's a stat that has, been created by actual fact and history and that is the party that wins the presidency loses. Fifteen seats on average, in the house, in the next election two years later that's, just the way it's were there exceptions, like in in two thousand and two the Republicans won the White House in two thousand and gained seats in two thousand and two because the Democrats scared the hell. Out, of everybody at the Wellstone memorial now why aren't the Democrats scaring? The hell out of everybody every day. Now the Wellstone memorial happened, one night The democrat party ought to be? Scaring anybody with an IQ over ninety Every day Some of, this stuff what the Democrats, are offering what, they're promoting this. Madcap stupid socialism trying to make a star out of. These people the anger that I hate I mean the raw hatred that this party has become known for an happily, makes it known each and every, day what in the world is attractive about. That they want us to believe that this country is United in its disgust for Trump and I just, don't see that but that's what they want, everybody to believe and so we're being asked. To to. Believe a bunch of of of s. o. p. standard operating procedure things that are axiomatic, inside inside the beltway, but I don't think it's, lack of enthusiasm, I can't I. Just can't believe that people that voted two years ago. Have not see the danger That what they voted for is at risk every day So if there is a complacency it, isn't complacency if there's an active decision not to vote and that's what has to be figured out Now I look at some, people are going to be complete look I I know that not one description can apply to everybody.
