"This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm David Greene and I'm Steve Inskeep Years ago, Less pain was a New York newspaper columnist. He was a Pulitzer Prize winner, one of the stars of his paper news day. Occasionally, he wrote a column about Malcolm X. But readers may not have realized just how much less pain was interested. His daughter Tamra Pain, says he reread Malcolm's autobiography every five years because Malcolm really spoke Clearly and concisely about our history in America and the troubled relationship that blacks have with lights in America and Dad understood that 1990 less pain, met one of Malcolm's surviving brothers and was surprised to learn. He didn't know the full story. It appealed to his his sensibilities as a journalist. And he wanted to tell the story. The only way he knew how which was to use journalism, employing his daughter, Tamra as his researcher. Less pain began interviewing more people finding documents and writing a book. It took him the rest of his life 28 years. Book wasn't quite finished when he died in 2018, but his daughter Tamra, Pain completed it. And this month it 11 of the highest prizes in American writing. What went through your mind when you realize that this work had won the National Book Award? I was so happy that my father was feed the accolades for his life's work. And You know, and that I miss him. The biography of Malcolm X is called. The Dead are arising It's especially revealing about Malcolm's youth. The adult Malcolm X. The 19 sixties was a controversial and charismatic figure, a defiant black nationalist, a fiery alternative to Martin Luther King. Young Malcolm Little was a kid from the Great Plains. I associate Malcolm X, of course with New York, where he spent a lot of his adult life and where he was assassinated. But now I know that he was born and grew up around Omaha. Nebraska is my fellow Midwesterner. What was it like for him growing up there, So Yeah, he grew up in Ah, behind. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska. His family's there for a couple of years. His parents were Garvey, I'd say followed Marcus Garvey's movement United Negro Improving Association. And those set out outpost and in different areas. Marcus Garvey, an immigrant writer, speaker and activist in the early 19 hundreds, Garvey's group promoted black self reliance and dignity and separation from white people. But when Malcolm Little's parents moved to a farm outside Omaha, representatives of a very different group of people came by This book opens in Omaha, Nebraska, and Malcolm in utero and their family. The little family is visited by their local clans chapter in Omaha, Nebraska. His pregnant mothers stared down the Ku Klux Klan and the Klan's been left. Luckily, his father, who they really wanted wasn't home. Not long after that. Malcolm was born in 1925 and Tamra Pain, says she found traces of the Midwest in his later life. Malcolm was down Earth, He was very grounded. In that sense and very grounded in his home and his family. Nevertheless, a difficult time growing up. His father died when he was what, six he was six and Yeah, and and also, Malcolm was close to his father, too. I mean, his father used to take him to meetings where he was organizing, and he got to watch his father and action. And so he has an image of his father, You know, being a good speaker being charismatic, having strong work ethic, you know his father's to get up early and wake up the family and do chores around the house before he would go out and take on jobs, and that's exhibiting Malcolm. I mean, Malcolm and extremely strong work ethic. Throughout his life. Not that his adult life started well. He moved east committed crimes went to prison. It was in prison that he was introduced to an American Muslim sect, the nation of Islam. He emerged to become the popular spokesman of the group leader. Is he? Someone that we can think of, is reinventing himself two or three times and is relatively short life. I see it as more evolving when you know better you do better. He evolved beyond the nation of Islam to we mentioned Marcus Garvey, the activist. His parents followed who spoke of black pride and also of separation, the nation of Islam advocated him or extreme separation, so much so that its leader explored the possibility of working with the KKK. Open is not happy about that. But he's not the leader of the nation of Islam. But this is where he seeks starts to see that they're different. And this clan situation really starts the rift between him and any lies your mama. Well, how would you describe the evolution in his thinking in the final months of his life, then? Well, he was not endorsing separation, he said. We can't we're gonna live in this country. We have to interact with large society and he was even espousing. Voting during last year's If it's like using our voting bloc to be our power, because what he wanted was that more impact with having us thrive in society, and you can't do that. You're not going to be a part of the society, but Malcolm, then he's going abroad. He goes on his hodge. He's connecting up with African countries. He's going to the Middle East. He's going to Africa. He's going to Europe. But in all these places he's learning about. Struggles and all these different places and what people are telling him is that they identify and they feel solidarity with the struggles of black people in America because they have similar struggles, although their struggles are basically on class issues, specifically class issues with We're racing class, so Mountain was listening to that, and he started involved again. He hadn't fully evolved on that because he's killed Tamra Pain on the unfinished life of Malcolm X. Her father, less pain, died with an unfinished book on Malcolm X, which she completed and which won the National Book Award. It's called.

"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds. That is what we are running out of in rural minnesota and all over the country. Here's the first column in that same paper today. Case rates skyrocket in the region again. That's west central minnesota. Here's the front page of the news star in monroe louisiana blunt headline hospitals overwhelmed. Here's the front page in grand junction colorado. Today the daily sentinel county says. Icu beds are full. Here's the front. Page in muncie indiana. Today the star. Press in muncie. Indiana hospitals cove in nineteen rates. Sores in indiana go to wyoming. The casper star tribune today casper wyoming deaths rise by record number. Something has got to turn this around kentucky. Here's the lexington kentucky paper. The herald leader kentucky sets staggeringly high new record for coronavirus cases. Go to new mexico the albuquerque journal today cova cases explode up in washington state bellingham herald. State virus rate's the worst since the beginning of pandemic all over the country right and as as overwhelming as this crisis is may now tonight. We've just learned that. The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune. Today i was actually a pretty good snapshot of what the heck we as americans are supposed to do with the twin disasters. We've got all at once and look at the front page at the minneapolis star tribune today a raging forest fire virus sweeps minnesota state to get ambulances from fema for surge importantly those are staffed ambulances so ambulance with their crews from fema going into minnesota to help them deal with patients and the need to move patients in hospitals.

Confirmed world coronavirus infections surpass 40 million, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally
"The world has now recorded more than 40 million Corona virus cases. Johns Hopkins University says the milestone was hit today, but the actual figure is likely far higher. Because testing varies. Many people have had no symptoms and some governments have concealed the true number of cases. The US, Brazil and India reporting the highest numbers of cases in the US cases are on the rise in 44 states, with many of the biggest surgeries coming in the Midwest. And the Great Plains. Up ahead

Many of the biggest surges have occurred in the Midwest and Great Plains, where there has been a resistance to wearing masks and other precautions and where the virus is considered only a big city problem. According to Johns Hopkins University. New cases in the US have increased in the past two weeks from an average of about 40,000 day to an average of more than 52,000 day depths or climbing in 30 states.

The Now-extinct Castoroides Was a Bear-sized Beaver
"Brain stuff Lauren Vogel. Bam here. mammoths, mastodons and Sabertooth hats weren't the only giants roaming ancient America. The Pleistocene was a global epoch kicked off two point six, million years ago. It lasted right up. Until Earth's most recent ice age ended about eleven thousand, seven, hundred years before the present day. When you live in a cold environment, being big has its advantages. Large animals tend to conserve body heat more easily than smaller ones. This is one of the major reasons why colossal mammals were so widespread during the frigid pleistocene. CASTA Roy was very much a product of its time. The largest rodent in Pleistocene north. America, this very big beaver grew to more than seven feet long from tail to stout that's over two meters and could have weighed as much as two hundred and twenty pounds or a hundred kilos or more. Rivaling the American black bear in size casta royalties utterly dwarfed the Beavers that lived today modern Eurasian, and American beaver species clock in just around three feet long a bit less than a meter and way somewhere between twenty nine, seventy, seven pounds. That's about thirteen to thirty five kilos. Proportionately castaways had a narrower tail and shorter legs albeit with bigger hind feet than its extant relatives. We also know that it didn't eat the same foods. What he plans are a crucial part of every living beavers diet. The critters use chisel like incisors that's their front teeth to gnaw through bark and take down trees. But. Even though castaways incisors grew to be a whopping six inches or fifteen centimeters long the teeth had dollar edges by comparison. Dental differences would have made it a lot harder for Castro to eat tree bark and indeed it looks like this was not really on their menu. Using isotopic signatures and castaways teeth from Ohio and the Yukon a twenty nineteen study found that the giant beaver mostly eight softer aquatic plants. The findings say a lot about the Rodin's ecological niche and why it might have died out. For starters, castaways probably didn't build dams. Unusual. About that the earliest known beavers appeared during the easing. A which lasted between about fifty, six, thirty, four, million years ago. New evidence suggests that the wood harvesting specialists came along much later perhaps around twenty million years ago. In all likelihood, these bark fanciers used would as a food source before any of them started constructing dams. Since as fed on aquatic plants, its survival would have depended on wetland habitats. The animal was highly successful for a time cast Roy these fossils representing at least two distinct species have been documented in the Great Plains the Great Lakes, the American South Alaska and numerous Canadian provinces. Unfortunately for the mega sized beaver north. America. became warmer and drier after the last ice age ended wetlands grew scarcer as a result. Today's beavers used their logging skills to reshape the land around them so that it meets their needs with some well placed would in the nearest stream, a determined beaver engineer brand-new Pons. Yet if Castro Reuters didn't harvest would or build dams, it couldn't followed suit. So theoretically decline in natural wetlands left the giant beaver more susceptible to extinction. Last of these creatures perished around ten thousand years ago.
Vail Resorts invests in massive Nebraska wind farm
"None of the thirty four ski resorts owned by Vail are in Nebraska but the company is investing in the states. Abundant wind-power. Vale has committed to buying three hundred, ten thousand megawatt hours of energy from the new plum creek wind farm in Wayne. County. That's enough to offset more than ninety percent of the electricity used at all avails. North. American resorts just give you an idea of scale to about thirty thousand homes worth power annually for twelve years. That's cates Wayne Wilson Fail Senior Director of Sustainability. She says, the power purchase agreement helped bring the wind farm online this summer. So for us, it's really important in our renewable strategy that we're bringing new renewables to the grid and the project takes Vail resorts close to the company's goal of zero emissions by twenty thirty, and we're really excited and proud of that, and we're also looking at the local level of how can we engage in solar and wind and other renewables on the ground where resorts are. She says for Ski. Company like Vale Protecting. The environment is a necessity. The great outdoors is our business and we feel like we've special obligation to protect it. So by investing in wind turbines in the Great Plains Vale is reducing the climate impact of its High Mountain Resorts.
American and United to furlough 32,000 workers
"Airlines. Bad news. If you work for American Airlines, they're going a ton. Of layoffs. Unfortunately, you know, I think a lot of companies doing this I'm taking for my airline. I'm making for all the airlines that making sure all the employees on all of us who loved to travel, Retired flight attendant Karen Harper worked for United for 32 years. She's been through a few rounds of furloughs herself, but nothing like this in the early seventies. Fine, great plains with five passengers on it, you know, so that the economic ups and downs over the years has been dramatic. And then, of course, After 9 11. He walked into an airport today. Travel is down 70% from a year ago, and federal stimulus funds that helped airlines through the summer expired today. Although negotiations are ongoing, there's no guarantee the White House or Congress will pass. An extension is forced American and United to furlough 32,000 workers combined. Oh, my God! And those air 32,000 skilled workers. You know these air, not guys picking up trash like this is that these are very skilled technical workers both send letters to team members last night. Explaining the decision, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker wrote. I am extremely sorry we have reached this outcome is not what you all deserve. It is a privilege to advocate on behalf of the hardworking aviation professionals at American and throughout the industry. And you have my assurance that we will continue to do so in the days ahead. United ended its letter saying to our departing 13,000 family members like God, 13,000. I've members of united. Thank you for your dedication, and we look forward to welcoming you back well, some believe airlines should be using private loans to keep employees passengers. We spoke to say it's a tough situation across the board this year is not good for anybody. So everybody's going through it right now. Airlines say they'll reverse the furloughs. If Washington comes to an agreement in the next couple of days, which is why they're urging employees to reach out to their elected officials don't know how good that's going to do.

Moo-Dunnit: How Beef Replaced Bison on the American Plainsand Plate
"Nearly, all the hamburgers in America today come from cows that spend at least part of their lives on the Great Plains that famous open range in the. American. West. So that is where we will go to start our story today to the American West before it was American before Europeans and their horses started showing up there in the late sixteen hundreds. So before there were cattle and before kind of United States had control of the planes in the. West you had a variety of American Indian policies, groups like the Comanche themselves essentially a very powerful empire across the West and they were hunting bison numbers for that time are kind of hard to come by. But it's estimated that there were about thirty to sixty million bison roaming through the middle of north. America. These are big grazing animals and what they can do is they can turn the abundant grasses of the West into animal flesh which then hunter's. Can Eat and so they become the foundation of the economy whenever I'm in the same spot as a cow I'm always kind of amazed at how big they are. But Bison is a heck of a lot bigger and faster. They can run about thirty five miles an hour faster than most horses, and they can pivot on both front and back hooves and literally turn on a dime. These are terrifying and dangerous creatures. It's not the kind of animal you'd. WanNa meet on foot and other key thing about them is that they're herd animals. So they gather at times massive herds, massive herds that would have represented a very appetizing dinner plus some warm and sturdy buffalo-hide imagine writing towards a herd of kind of terrifyingly huge bison if you're safely on horseback but how did native communities had them before horses very carefully so you could really only do it in the spring or summer when Bison gathered together to mate. You would do it on foot and you could work as a group, but it was difficult. You couldn't really do it fulltime. You could hunt by some kind of part time before the Horse, the planes really belong to the. Bison. But we now think of as plains tribes actually lived on the edges of the planes combining a little small-scale hunting with some farming. But once you had horses than well-coordinated hunters could hunt the animals very efficiently. The horses came with the Spanish. The native communities got a hold of some of those horses and horses quickly caught on they even changed the politics of the region, the communities that had more horsepower like the comanche kind of took over and they. Would kind of dominate everybody else and basically built these very successful empires empires that were built on Bison, hunting them and trading them with European settlers on the east coast. So people like the Comanche Kiowa were very successful from horseback and they may have actually been causing slow population declines in Bison. The story I heard him school is that white people killed off all the Bison and the truth is they did but the bison were already under a little bit of extra pressure. Thanks to the horses that white people brought. But waited until the spread of ranching and Commercial Bison hunting from Euro Americans to really collapse and by one thousand, nine, hundred, there's only maybe three hundred bison left. The West from at least thirty, million bison to just three hundred and about fifty years that by some more systematically wiped out in only a few decades thirty million bison were eventually replaced by thirty million cows de Bison izing roses really got started in the mid eighteen hundreds when people of European descent or beginning to move out west of the plains and start settling there. It was all sorts of people particularly I when it was scale so When what is Texas belong to Mexico you had lots of Mexicans who are setting up ranch's then you've got kind of poor white settlers anglos coming into the region setting things up as the American civil war approaches you got people who are kind of second and third sons of wealthy southern plantation families who can't inherit the family plantation and so they kind of go west to a place like Texas to set up kind of these small scale ranch's. Looked out at the planes and they thought, okay there are huge rangy creatures that live there why not replace them with other huge rangy creatures but why didn't they just stick with the bison that were already living there bison meat is freaking delicious and there is more of it per animal because Beissner. Bigger and bonus bison more already perfectly ecologically suited to the native. Grasslands and climate conditions. That's a really interesting question. I've I've thought about it a lot because in some ways, bison would be a very natural animal to raise. But then when I was reading diaries and things, I found that these people they were kind of disgusted bison they didn't view that as an animal that could be farmed. They saw it as a wild animal. and. So what's interesting about that is on one level people go with what they knew. Euro. Americans know about raising cattle, but another thing gets into their ideas of what is civilized and Dave you. The Bison is not the kind of animal that a civil in their minds a civilized people would raise and so cattle is the way to do it. So why couldn't settlers just leave the? Bison alone race cattle separately well, they could but the animals can't live on top of each other. So if thirty million animals are occupying most of this land, it has to be taken another thing though is that the Bison of the foundation of wealth of native peoples and if the sellers want WanNa take control by force of this land while they want to eliminate the means of support. And the foundation of power of people like the Comanche and so they view attacking the Bison as a way of achieving their other goal, which is taking as much land as possible for themselves and for the United States and what's funny is that difference in cattle is what justifies to them taking the land but the similarity is what means they can be successful as ranchers that similarity between. Bison, and cattle at first these early cattle ranchers was small potatoes they in their cows were outnumbered and overwhelmed compared to the native people and Bison. Well, the herds were relatively small. It's kind of like a few hundred animals. So it's it's a few enough animals that you disarm people who manage them and kind of ride around taking care of them are the same ones who owned them. And it's it's pretty mobile. You know you don't have kind of official ownership of the land. You're just kind of occupying land where you don't find any other settlers and you're hoping that the nearby fort or the US military will protect you from violence even though you're of course, using land that other people live on like the Kiowa

Pine Ridge Indian Health Service regains accreditation
"This is national native news I'm Antonio Gonzalez the Pine Ridge Indian Health Service Hospital in south, Dakota has regained accreditation and can now bill Medicare for services. Jackie Henry has more the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Services ended its provider agreement with the Pine Ridge IHS facility in two thousand, seventeen, citing the facilities failure to meet care standards. Losing that agreement meant the facility couldn't reimburse treatments through those programs by November of last year. A CMS survey team reported the hospital to be one hundred percent compliant with standards. Last month. The Joint Commission awarded the hospital full accreditation after a virtual survey. James Driving Hawk is the Great Plains area director for Indian Health Services? Services he says the Pine Ridge team has demonstrated, it can consistently meets standards. We have expanded leadership oversight from the office to the hospital and improve staffing levels, and we have increased requirements for medical staff, credentialing education of our staff were quality standards and implemented new checks and balances to ensure new issues that arise are addressed promptly. He says the agreement with CMS will help. The facility maintained and expanded services going forward now that all of our visits that we have a with our our patients are are able to be reimbursed, fully reimbursed now and so those the hospitals will receive that additional revenue, and then we take that revenue investment back into to.

South Dakota National Parks
"Welcome the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about South Dakota. I'd like to welcome back to the show Gary Art from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? Surprise surprise about national parks. This time about the National Parks of South Dakota Gary. Welcome back to the show. It has been so long. Yeah and we never get to talk so it's always a pleasure. It has been a very short period of time since I talked to carry but we have talked about doing this show since we ran into each other. Probably at Mount Rushmore last October September September. I think yeah. Maybe it's October. But yeah we're going to t backs and and this was totally unplanned. You just happen to be a remote rushmore exact same time. It's one of those odd coincidences that happen. And it doesn't happen to meet all that often but there are some national parks in South Dakota. That are not Mount Rushmore. So where are we going if we go to the National Parks of South Dakota? They're six national park. Service sites in South Dakota and five of them are in the West located in or near the Black Hills. And then there's one all by its lonesome in the east so we might as well talk about that one. I and that is the Missouri River National Recreation area. It lies on the Missouri River as you might guess given the name it is in the charming little town of yanked him. South Dakota believe it or not. I was actually rather curious to visit yanked and because I had read a list several years ago that had the cheapest place to live in America was yanked in South Dakota so it was kind of curious to see I was kind of curious. What kind of community is this? And it's very nice and it's not rundown or anything now it's cheap. It just happens to be in the middle of nowhere and that's why the site is right on the border with Missouri arm starting Nebraska and it's fifty nine mile stretch of the Missouri River. Very nice some very large bluffs that are overlooking the river and a national recreation area. So it's not a park if you go to the visitor center and look to get your National Park Stamp. It is not a visitor center per se. It is the office. So that's where the maintenance vehicles and the office staff and they're all there and in that building there's a very small lobby and they just sort of stick the stamp out there for people that want it but unlike pretty much every other national parks that you go to. There's no movie there's no displays none of that. It's very straightforward. It's just something that you can visit. There's a bridge which goes from South Dakota to Nebraska that crosses the river and that's probably some of the best views you're going to get of the river if you WANNA take some photos. There's a place you can pull out just before the bridge. You can't really stop on the bridge nor can you really walk across the bridge. So that's kind of difficult so you just have to keep those things in mind. It's far enough east for. I think you could easily do day-trip if you happen to be in Sioux falls or if you're driving across the state I mean if you wanted to dip down interstate ninety s the interstate. The kind of runs across South Dakota East West. You could do that if you're a serious national parks. Yeah other than that. There's not a lot there. Well I should say for the listeners. The show who are either not from the US or possibly geographically challenged the Missouri River may not stick out in your mind but Missouri River is the longest river in North America. If you include the merchant into the Mississippi River in Saint Louis even if you don't include the Mississippi part I believe North think it's the Missouri Mississippi Slash Missouri. So if you took if you went from New Orleans and then just kind of banked left at Saint Louis rather than right that would take you further. 'cause THE MISSISSIPPI goes up into northern Minnesota whereas the Missouri goes much further will the I? I'm looking it up in the Missouri River just until it gets to the mouth Where it enters into the Mississippi is well for our European listers who I was mentioning this forest. Thirty seven hundred thirty seven sixty seven kilometers or two thousand three hundred forty one miles. So there's really quite an amazing amount of the length of this river not to mention the fact that it empties into the Mississippi River. The river at this point and yanked is pretty good sized. It's not a rapid river. Anything like that. It's far too big for it if anything else. It kind of gives you an appreciation for the river. Think if you go up to North Dakota there are some sites that are close to the as well and you with Lewis and Clark and these the Missouri kind of as their highway to get to the West speaking of the river. I in South Dakota many times live in Minnesota and I think South Dakota is kind of. There's two half's to the state the east and the West in the dividing line is the Missouri River it kind of goes along Nebraska and then it hooks up in when you're on interstate ninety that goes East West when you cross the river. The geography changes pretty dramatically so on the eastern side of the river. It's really flat. Is Your stereotypical great plains. Corn for miles. Once you cross it then you start to see hills instantly like instantly instantly. And that's a function of the river the meandering of the river in the flood plain and everything has basically scour out everything to the east of it and literally. When you cross the bridge you start to see some hills and that's not the black hills yet but it's kind of building up to that. I think you're still well over one hundred miles away at that point and all of the rest of the parks are in this. Western part of the state in the western part of the state is by far the most interesting. It gets the most tourists. You've heard of pretty much anything. In South Dakota it is to the west of the Missouri River in that Black Hills area. So we're talking deadwood Mount Rushmore while drug everything except the Mitchell Corn Palace.

The group helped the city right. A climate action plan that addressed the students concerns. After it passed the institute kept the youth engaged. We wanted to leverage these students. Whose voices were so powerful. And who had this passion? The group gave the students data about the suitability of each rooftop and the city for solar panels than the teens went door to door. They talked to people about the Solar Energy. Their roof could generate and how to finance solar panels ultimately why it says that effort will lead to at least seven new solar installations. She says the teens knowledge and energy where amazing. These students are intelligent. They're smart they know climate and they're our future leaders. We can hand off the baton with confidence that the next generation knows what they're doing

"For the first time and I believe it's two decades Boeing lost money yeah the last time they had an annual loss not a quarterly one but its annual one was nineteen ninety seven so it's it's been a little while and obviously this is all related to the seven thirty seven Max there there is no other reason why Boeing is losing money what they are estimating now is that the total costs related to this between money they have paid a victim's paid another operators money lost you know from not being able to actually sell these planes in the living room they're anticipating it's gonna be about eighteen point six billion dollars now which is pretty much double what they had earlier estimated even with that I think analysts were fearing that this you know could have been worse and so mowing stock is actually about two and a third percent today not even with the the loss that they reported part that's just because the stock has been so badly punished yeah over the last year in a year where the S. and P. five hundred you know rose thirty percent yes Boeing stock obviously did not it was down you know significantly over the course of the year ag I saw the new C.

Barred Owls Invade the Sierra Nevadas
"Barred owl has a very distinctive call. That's the one that goes who cooks for you. Connor would is a conservation biologist and apply to colleges at the University of Wisconsin Wisconsin Madison. Who happens to do a pretty great barred owl impression himself. Who barred owls are native to the eastern US but in the last century? They've crossed the great great plains flooded into Canada and taking up roost in the Pacific northwest. Where they're a major threat to northern spotted. Owls barred owls are bigger and more aggressive than SPA. Ah Dollars and so far have been able to. Basically drive spotted owls out of their preferred nesting areas and also. Because they're more flexible than what they eat. There can be lots more bartels on landscape in now they're invading. The Sierra Nevada mountains further south the native range of the California spotted owl and the big question. Question was what is the size of the population there. And how fast is it growing to answer. That wouldn't team deployed audio recorders. Roughly a thousand locations uh-huh throughout twenty three hundred square miles of the northern Sierra Nevada. And they listened for two years. Collecting the faint calls of spotted. Owls barred owls house to in total. They gathered two hundred thousand hours worth of audio. Pretty daunting seeing. It all accumulate a- and knowing we had to make something intelligible out of algorithms that comb the audio for our call's helped make sense of it all and through models. The researchers were able to estimate estimate who was living in those forests barbells or spotted owls in approximately how many of them there were the key. Finding is that barred. Owls occupied about eight percent of the the northern. Sierra Nevada landscape and twenty seventeen but that jumps to twenty one percent in two thousand eighteen. So that's a two point six fold increase in just one year ear and on one hand. That's really worrying because it suggests that that bartell population has begun to grow really rapidly and thus pose direct immediate threat the California's byd l.. But the other hand. It's really exciting. Because this means we've caught the problem early and actually have a chance to do something about it. Most biological logical invasions really aren't fully identified until it's too late. The results are in the Journal. Condor ornithological applications would and his team advised that it might be necessary. Sorry to take lethal action. Remove the barred owls before they wipe out California spotted. Owls assuming that is we. Give about two spotted. Owls continued survival.

"great plains" Discussed on Collective Insights
"Let's jump back in. Not patients remove the eating of moldy foods from their diet. And my patients still get well soon. I'm in your camp that that is consistent with my clinical experiences. Well, so. So we're about to do a study with Great Plains laboratory, which we're going to take patients or volunteers, actually, and we're gonna do this as a multi center trial using a number of physicians who are on the executive board of high CI. We're going to take patients have stopped consuming all known moldy foods for ten days. Measure in their urine and had them pig out on all those known moldy foods for ten days. And then see what we get now to my knowledge that's never been done where that study should launch at the end of this year beginning of the year, and I hope by early two thousand nineteen I'll actually be able to have a preliminary answer, for physicians and consumers of to what extent does that matter answer? Don't know. Does it matter? I don't think so. Have had a handful of patients respond to not eating those foods. Don't know what. That means. I'm going to shift gears for a second on food. What we do know is treating mold in which Candida almost always plays a role in wanna be on a high protein, low carb diet because Kubwa hydrates particularly sugar and fruit shade Candida and feed fungal species. And that does make a difference. And we use the same diet for lime because that seems to make a difference as well. Okay. So consistent with both lime animals have that low sugar, low, carb diet, hypertension, high nutrient dense and stay away from from the fluff. So. Testing for Lyme kind of. Complicated. I would say is a short answer to that aside from what you mentioned with the genetics western blot. Is there anything any other way that you can get to what co-infections are what's going on there? And then is that important when it comes to treatment. Again, many answers to that question. There are other tests on the market and then mold versus lime. So both are going on. Where do you start? Virtually always with mold hundred give you a bunch of reasons for that. Number one because mold and lime look so similar. I can make the mole diagnosis with much more certainty because the testing is better number two. I don't need to jump into antibiotics which are almost always necessary in the line world. I would like to avoid that. So literally if you if you you can't be certain that one is not in play. So if you treat the mold successfully and all the symptoms go away, you didn't have to provide antibiotics for that patients on necessarily from both a toxic affect affect on their gut. Biomass affect on cost. You didn't need to do that. So I would always treat them old. I it is also less toxic easier to treat and much less hard on the body. So I typically start with mold. I can tell you that. I've had. Very very few exceptions tattoo couple where they had both. And for whatever reason they could start with mold their body wouldn't let them when we started with Nella their body tolerated in handler better. And then we were able to move on to mold. They're really exceptions in the nisei argument that perhaps the body will take care of the line or the co-infections. If the toxicity is gone in the immune system starts to work a little better. Or do you not typically see that have you seen the look on my face? I know. These are both nasty processes for most of my mold patients, the mold has colonized, and they're gutting sinuses. They're happy there. This is perfect temperature. Watts of nutrients it's dark. It's comfy. They love their host or hostess, why would they leave? They're not gonna go away because you wish them away sameness true with Lyman co-infections. Perfect temperature lovely nutrients lovely cellular debris defeat upon. Why would they leave?

And I'm good with both. Right. So, but I know that about myself, and I know that I need to be consciously seeking feedback. And I do that through through making statements like I don't know what I'm talking about. But but this is what I'm thinking. And that that enables gives the group the right to kinda gawk, and that's not right or in his what I think got couple of good. But this is no good. And so that you're always in that sort of cultural state where the organization is is given the the alliance to think and put their perspective into any any of these decisions that we go. Yeah. I love that mean again, so many things that is in. In your face to face and talkies again that attended a will that talked about the humble teachable spirit not afraid about being wrong. I say that I think that is critical the moment that you could stop warring of you don't wanna be wrong. But the moment you can stop worrying about being wrong, your whole life can be transformed. Right. And it's almost embracing the failures looking at failures nonsensical word. What does it even mean? The a hill. Right. You're always striving for excellence striving for improvement pushing yourself at a comfort zone being comfortable being uncomfortable. These are the things that I see you. That are essential leadership traits. But I see that in you in them. I wish more CEO's would have it that kind of humbled teachable. It your perfect example of where you don't have to have this John Wayne s charisma personality to be ineffective leader, you still have a strong presence. But yet you're like, I said, I see the interested in you. I see the the humbleness, but I see this intensity to insist. It's a powerful combination. I don't have ever looked at it that way. But no, I think it's great in the what's what's new and exciting for Great Plains. What what's down the pike?.

"And and and meanwhile, half of the group is going on really believe in. And so I you know, that's one of the more difficult things to do. But, but it is one of the things that I spent a lot of energy on managing the namic between the people that generally. Okay. Not speaking and those that are perfectly. Okay. Talking all the time. And so we manage that process in a we make everybody aware what it is. And then we engage the. People that don't speak because usually they're the thinkers. Yeah. They're not. Yeah. You're right. You're absolutely. I told the when we have a CFO. That's just awesome. He's a he's the biggest rock star of work with for an doesn't get any better than, but he, but he doesn't say much, and so as we were going through this the group said, you know, as we move forward, you gotta reflect on on a couple of things one of them is that. We have to call the CFO out to actually say we have to give him the ability to say something and usually takes time for him to say something, but you know, in the six years of being there with a company there's never been a moment where one of asked him to make a comment that it wasn't some some that. I didn't learn from that something of Niver never did. I say that was a waste of time. I mean, everything that comes from him has been thought through. Yeah. While the talkers, you're thinking as you're talk, right? As some of the stuff, I kinda don't really want to know. So what what we do? We manage the process of coming to a common vision and showing that the people that that are the thinkers are fully engaged, then the entire organization, you know, believe in what we're doing and it's also easy to to then pass through the entire organization. Yeah. When that entirely ship group is you know, really believes, Ed. Intention -ality behind that most stretching emotional quotient muscle, right? That really is a primary function of you is the CEO, right. I can vision you can sit there in vision. You. You know, sitting back and making sure you're aware of one it's happening. Right. And then interjecting and polling, right? I resonated with me because as good aircraft commander of plane, you have to do that right in because so many accidents have happened because of the dynamic type a personality sit down and shut up, you know, in trying to get that interview COPA at the speak up, those you're about the crash into the mountain right in there's been tons of accidents over the history of.

"And that's how I see leadership. You have the skills. You have all the skills right now to be the leader that someone needs to be today. And so your goal is to figure out what is that leader that I need to be for this person persons that organization today. Right. That make sense does that resonate with you. Yeah. Yeah. Interesting. This was so refreshing to hear Victor, I can't tell you how much that gets me jazzed. Because I think that when you look, well, let's talk about some of the the the time where you've you've had to in your career with all the organization or that you've had to fight that kind of Frederick Winslow Taylor perception of management would tell me about those times where you've come head to head with that that kind of old mentality based on what I'm hearing from you. Yeah. And I and I have had those were the house very very fortunate early on in my career that I that I eat I don't know whether divine intervention of what happened, but I ended up in organizations that that fit my my paradigm fit, my belief system, and how you did this. And I was also very fortunate that I actually had an it's it's an interesting word that you use empowerment just happened. So that the last three days we had our leadership development summit for three days. And I did that with with Brian from W one of the topics that we that we we talked about was empowerment and in its badly abused work because you know, it's sort of like it can be misused than it can be it can be wrongly used. But, but it's really a simple relationship empowerment, you can only empower somebody to the degree to which their skills. And their experience allow them to be. So, you know, you don't wanna go give you know, the the the guy who doesn't is gone Cessna one sixty to fly a seven forty seven right because he's probably gonna kill everybody. So you need to make sure that there's always that balance in that you moving people forward with the empowerment stuff, but it get it. You know, getting that getting to that to that place where where we we're we're mobilizing the organization, you you gotta get inside it. So that there's so that so this empowerment transformation is taking place, and it's and it's deliberate. Right. Eminence delivered an instant peace in the other interesting question that came up recently was if you look at the empowerment spectrum, right? It's a balance between thority and your skillset an experience. So but somebody has to step into higher authority perhaps without having the experience, right? Or they are they are they have too much experience. But they don't have enough power. And the question was where do you prefer for people to be in a place where they have more skill set than than power or the put them in a place a little bit uncomfortable. And they learned to take you know to grow into their power. And I think it's both depends on the personality. They were halfway through the conversation. But I wanted to take the time to talk about my good friends, the sponsor here this special series equity Bank. Have you ever noticed that most business bankers seem to really understand just one thing? It's banking, right. And not a lot about business make sense since most banks were built generations ago. And now they're often run by caretakers not business builders will it's not the case here at equity Bank, the bankers equity Bank, didn't Herod a Bank generations ago, they built one of their own.

"How would I do this? And and just retired that I had an opportunity to be a leadership role. I would try to model that. Yeah. And. That that appeal to me because you're right. Most engineers we like being in slightly dark rooms cave. Leave us alone. You know, we'll we'll work on something. And we'll give you the answer. And and and he just go away. Yeah. Even engineered engineer engineer to death. Right. That's what they wanna do. Right gets excited rate. But the fact that you love it the combination though, I think Victor is such a powerful combination because I can sense it from you. I can see it from you. You've got this humble, I say this on the show a lot he had this humble teachable spirit. But inside I see this intensity of will combined with that. Right. And that combination of that hump humility with teachable spirit with that intensity. Will is very makes for a very effective leader. I don't know if you've seen it that way. You look at it that way. But I think some of the, you know, you're you're you're quiet your sauce Bokan. But I'm looking at you. And I know that people can't see you you have this intensity about you. That is composed intensity. Right. And is. A fair assessment of you. I mean, I see that. I see that inside of you that. Yeah. That people that I think everybody would tell you that I that I can be intense. But but. And if you were to come into GP today and ask some of the people that work women are regular basis in other Nomi now six years later, as so they know that a lot of it is really an act because that, you know, I'll get a get very dramatic too. Because I'm start to realize that a point hasn't been made. So I'll sell they'll make a show out of it. And then which is back off. So you know, we will have this high energy intensity. But, but yeah, I mean, I think I I am I would imagine most people in leadership roles would need, you know, you gotta have a lot of energy to keep. Absolutely. I think to be an effective one a really effective one. It's the combination. I sometimes I see. Even some very visible leaders famous leaders that we see they're either one of the other there too extreme on one end right there either to humble, and Hugh, you know, they don't have that intensity. There ain't they're almost laws fair, right. Or the other side. They're almost like it's all about charisma and Taipei and this and that, and they don't have that humility piece. That's where you get a lot of egocentric side of leadership. Right. See that a lot of politics. I'll see around the ego Centric side of leadership rate, and there's still a belief. I even work in the corporate arena for sixteen seventeen years this perception of this belief that you have to be this larger than life charismatic egocentric forced to be an effective leader. And I just don't buy into that. What your thoughts on that? No, you're right. I mean, just before we started this. We were talking a little bit about that. And you're right because it isn't about you driving the organization it's about the organization transforming into drive in itself. Yeah. So you have to push the, you know, get that you have to mobilize the workforce get the energy into the organization because it can't come from one individual right in Iowa's. He loo while back when I was with grandfather's there for twelve years with these guys as chairman asked me at over dinner.

"Special entrepreneurial and leadership series of those leadership. Brought to you by my friends at equity. The come so excited to sit down and talk with your welcome to the show. Thank you. Thank you. And you've got a storied career from a leadership perspective. How did you get? How did you? And we were talking before the recording in Yugoslavia Toronto gains, the city Californian, you're here in Wichita. How did you get here? How did you get to this leadership role? That's a good question. Well, you know, the leadership. I it wasn't a plant. It wasn't. I didn't wake up, and and think to myself, I gotta be a seal. It was a sort of a sequence of of of events. You know, when I got when I started working and so being an employee stock observe the leadership around you, and I thought to myself. This is not really all that affective. I don't you know, they're the way in which they interact with me with other people. It's it. It's not it doesn't produce the results that it could. And and as I as I moved through my career, and it and it progressed. I just kept thinking about how would I receive this? If I was on the other side, and I don't know whether that was what what and that up putting me further and further into the management chain. But every time I had an opportunity to be in the leadership role. I practiced the art of what would I what would IB doing on the on the bottom, and how would I be perceiving my leadership style? You know, that's impressive. Because it's so true. I've always said, I think back to all the examples of leadership have been exposed to the greatest lessons have been sometimes from those really poor examples right in the fact that you had the awareness and the ability to go man, I'm going to do that. And then, but but the I'm curious about okay. So you're given a leadership role. So it wasn't your plan. It's always funny. Lot of people say that they never thought it'd be in this role. What was the intention? What was the idea when you got your degree at Ryerson university? When you when you're entering the workforce. What was the intention? Well, originally was imagined wanted to be an engineer. He and I end so that's what I did. I started off designing electric heaters. And and then I thought man there's more to it than and and. Just this ineffectiveness of of of the people that were providing leadership to me and to other engineers, I would end up stepping up to do some of the things that that I thought well, we we need some guidance. We need some encouragement we need some direction on some of this stuff. And so that in I just sort of evolved in a piece by piece, but the willingness to go I'm not going to want to do something different. Right. That's I think that's a little different. Sometimes particularly people with I've worked with a lot engineers, and engineering mindset, you know, and certain type of mindset, you have it. But you're also said, you know, I'm gonna this. Ain't right. I'm going to change the world. Right. So where did that come from? Do you think? Yeah. Well, he Noah some immigrant as you said, I was born in informing us live. It was just as small kid when we laugh, so we had nothing I'm my family had zero. And so when when we ended up in Canada, you know, going throw a stray Elia and. In high school, and we have nothing. And so I realized was my mum's value system that if you want to get something you're going to have to work for yourself. And so that work ethic was there very early on. And I just you know, working progressing through. And I realized that it for me personally to to grow ahead. Make a lot of effort into into doing that and to go back to the engineering piece within very short period of time. I realized that the people that made the money, and the people that had, you know, had really the ability to influence the business were the the guys up at the top. And and I'm receiving their leadership styling thinking, this is really not very effective such that thinking along the lines..

"And he will cover some of those questions for you so tell us how decarbonising. You have a big report this roadmap coming out, tomorrow you're unveiling it in Milwaukee How will it and the information within it. Help power the growing economy One of the things we do at the Great Plains, institute is we we have a bunch of experts on the energy system, but rather than sitting in our offices and devise solutions on our own we bring together diverse interests around the. Table to try to figure out what the best solutions are for everyone so the force behind this roadmap are the power companies, semi environmental, groups that have come to the table to jointly sort of you know put all their differences out and find their common ground and essentially map out for, us how we can take the electricity system from where it is today which is primarily fuelled, by uncontrolled natural gas and coal to a place in twenty-fifty where we're we're protecting the environment by generating our power, without without, emissions without, carbon emissions that damage the environment as I understand go ahead go ahead Sorry part of that is is driving new jobs driving, new industries, putting solar panels on roofs putting solar panels and shields building wind turbines putting retrofitting existing gas plants with carbon capture unit these are these are real high, paying jobs in our economy and so you you know you can tear this goal of protecting, the environment with the goal of stimulating the economy and and driving job creation this listener asks you this FRANZ doesn't. Natural gas. Produce carbon Yes it does metro gas is a carbon, based fossil fuel that comes. Out of the ground and one. Of the things that will will increasingly have to do according to our analysis is if we're gonna use natural gas we're gonna have, to capture the carbon as? It comes out of the effluent, streamed air pollution, stream and sticking under the ground? Sequester, it so that's one of the things that, in this report, we're going to have to, differ if we choose to continue to use, natural gas then we're gonna need to we're gonna. Need to. Control it what would you say FRANZ are kind of in in, your order, of priority or preference or what you think would be the safest the different kinds of resources you know when we. Have wind we have, solar what would be your healthy mix That is one of the cool things, about this route map the diverse group that came together to devise it essentially agrees that what we need is a mix we need right, now, we don't. Have enough certainty with any of the technologies in our toolbox to that on. On one of them and so what we need to do right now is we need to draw on all of them wind, solar we need to get to a place where we can capture the carbon a natural gas plant in underground we have to, think hard. About how we deal with existing nuclear plants which have no emissions so the precise mix. I think it's going to depend on an individual, state and its regulators and. Stakeholders but the one of the. Key points that the collaborative is making with this roadmap is that we do need a mix and we we need to keep as, many tools in the toolbox? Is possible and talking with FRANZ, Liszt you can, to in our remaining minutes with Him he's a Great. Plains institute that is, a national nonprofit nonpartisan organization based in Minneapolis its mission to transform the energy system. To benefit the environment and the economy and I think that's the key right it's like how do we mesh those interests of being, good for the environment yet the business sector or the economic drivers aren't down your throats about that it seems like that's the huge conundrum Yeah we we have long since decoupled, energy. From from the economy another tweet we can, grow the? Economy and and we can we can use? Less and less? Fossil fuels, or we can use fossil fuels in a responsible way and still grow the economy that's that is something I think we've. Demonstrated in the collaborative I think is is saying in a release of this roadmap, now I know you could talk for hours about this topic FRANZ it's not. The sexiest topic for most Americans, but? What what, do you want to leave us with why do we you know why should we also be excited that this report is released tomorrow in Milwaukee.
