"120 countries. This is Bloomberg radio. Now, a global news update the inflation reduction act is headed to the House after clearing the Senate, the bill was approved with vice president Harris casting the tie breaking vote following a marathon weekend session. The house is expected to take up the massive economic plan on Friday, majority leader Chuck Schumer hailed today's approval of the package as historic and long overdue. Police and Cincinnati are investigating a mass shooting that wounded 9 people at a bar early this morning, begun fire erupted in the city's over the Rhine district, about one 30 a.m., police say all of the victims were being treated for non life threatening injuries at a nearby hospital. A Cincinnati police department spokesman says one responding officer fired his weapon at the shooter, but it's unclear if the suspect was hit as he fled the scene. There were no reports of arrests. The governor of New Mexico says she's sending additional police to Albuquerque to investigate the fourth murder of a Muslim man for Muslims have been killed in separate shootings in Albuquerque since November and police believe the murders could be related. I'm Chris karashi. You're listening to Bloomberg intelligence with Alex Steele and Paul Sweeney on Bloomberg radio. All right, well, U.S. lawmakers $370 billion climate and energy reconciliation proposal includes three key takeaways that would be most impactful for the oil and gas sector. Let's drill down on that with Bloomberg intelligence analyst Brandon Barnes. All right Brandon, what are those key issues for the energy space? Hey, Paul, I like the use of drill down there. That's good. And let's start with drilling, right So EMPs are probably the most impacted in terms of cost being added to them from the proposed reconciliation bill. It is coming in two different ways. One is a methane fee, which is a very popular approach from Democrat and those opposed to fossil fuels these days is trying to tag a fee on for emissions of methane at various places. Well head, compressors, pipelines where have you? The other one is going to be they're going to raise royalty rates on federal lands to 4% raise. These are billions of dollars across the industry, but that's helpful when you actually have landed drill on from the federal government, which is what brings us to the second takeaway, which is there's a net positive for offshore. So offshore drilling in the U.S. as we all know, gulf Mexico is primary target for exploration and production. There has not been a viable acreage sale from the federal government since before the fall of 2021. And so that has and we weren't supposed to see one until at least fourth quarter of 23. So this bill addresses all of that and everything in between and even going back further by reinstating old sales that were invalidated by a court. Let me give you a couple of people who are important in that place. You've got Chevron, Oxy, BP Shell Exxon. All of them were the highest bidders from that sale that would be reinstated a $192 million in bids. That's just one sale. They're supposed to happen at least once a quarter. And we haven't had one. So this bill would put that back into place. Third thing, we wanted to talk about was actually outside of this. Whatever background dealings were going on between senator Schumer and Manchin was allegedly part of that was we're going to agree later on to change federal permitting altogether. Sometime in the fall, maybe end of September. Big changes to energy infrastructure permitting, which hits renewables and oil and gas infrastructure in the same way because no one's getting anything built based on permitting, challenges in the course, et cetera. Interestingly enough, there's a carve out for mountain valley pipeline equitrans midstream that is the big one we think intervention has been using to try and he wants to get that push through. That goes West Virginia to Virginia, big gas pipe and stuck for a long time. Brandon, just give us a sense here. I mean, we were just paying $5 a gallon for gasoline a few weeks ago. There's real energy shortage that's going to get very acute in Europe this winter. What's the feeling with any energy space within the regulatory aspect of the energy space about, okay, we need to move towards clean energy, but boy, we also need some of this fossil fuel stuff, the tide is over. There's a lot of energy insecurity out there. How do you think about that? Well, look, I think that's we talked about this before and with reference to midstream, especially LNG exporters, right? U.S. keeps getting hit in different ways, LNG Freeport went offline because they have fire. They're trying to get back up. It just recently come to agreement with Sims of the federal regulator there. You got to be in pass and schneer. They're trying to push back on an air rule. Like there's all this regulatory morass that is threatening transmission and export of energy that could really help Europe, especially on the natural gas side. So I think there are certainly positive signals coming out of the companies in the energy and gas oil and gas companies here that are saying we wouldn't mind having this bill out there because that would help with, especially federal acreage for offshore, but maybe we get some permitting deal that we really badly need. Yeah, because it's interesting. Again, I think most people generally support the move towards green energy, but boy, I just had WTI crude at a $120 a barrel, you know, a few months ago with since come down and but it just seems like and I keep asking people, well, we'll just go build a new refinery, you know? And they tell me, it's not so easy, number one, and number two, there's really no incentive to go do that because, again, they're getting a lot of pressure from a lot of areas to move towards green energy. It seems like it's a very difficult transition. Yeah, really mixed signals coming out of Washington D.C., right? They're being big oil companies being called greedy. They're saying that gas prices are here because you guys are trying to get bigger profits. But just the way energy works worldwide, it's all connected. That doesn't really ring true. And what's being offered from certain corners of policymakers is let's push hard for green shore. But there's no bridge. There's no bridge from where we are now the way we consume electricity the way we use it for transportation and where people want us to go. And that reality just hasn't been crossed. I think that's the mix we get between politics in D.C. and sort of the reality of electricity and energy consumption in the United States. Right. I mean, $370 billion, this climate energy reconciliation proposal seems like a big number to me. Is it give us a sense of how material it is? Will it move the needle? Probably, I mean, honestly, this is more of a political move than anything else. This is let's get a win. We need something. We couldn't get those back better. This is a very light version of build back better. The last bill they got through that infrastructure act was over a trillion. And so this is much smaller in terms of the bigger packages that they would try and get through. Overall, it's in the $700 million range, but there's some energy and climate portion of 370 billion. We're talking about hundreds of billions of dollars. Those are big numbers, but for government spending, it's not a ton and it's likely that what this is going to do for the most part is this is targeting the tax side, right? Let's get some incentives out there to continue building those renewable projects. Let's get some incentives out there on EVs. Let's try and push people to come back to the table and develop again. All right, great stuff there, Brandon really appreciate it. Our thanks to Bloomberg intelligence analyst Brandon Barnes. All right, while we're talking about bill's another major piece of legislation in the works is the $740 billion inflation reduction act. The renewable industry may benefit if it passes while others like big pharma might not be so lucky. For more, let's bring in Bloomberg intelligence and senior government analyst Duane Wright Dwayne, what's in this bill for the healthcare industry? There's a couple of pieces and we start with the pharmaceutical side of things. The bill includes the Democrats long-standing goal to bring in drug prices. There's a provision in the bill that would allow or require the secretary of HHS to negotiate prices on some high expenditure or D and part D drugs and those prices would be available in the Medicare marketplace. Now the bill is and what's been proposed is short of what Democrats had proposed in the past. But there are enough moderate Democrats in the House and in the Senate to scale back the proposal so that we're looking at each of the first couple of years, only a handful of products ten to 15 products that will be subject to negotiation and those prices would be passed on to Medicare, to savings are not as big as what Democrats had hoped they'd see in previous proposals, but they are significant. It will bring in about a $100 billion in savings

"The oil price information service tells us by how much. The average price is on a collision course, I would say with below $4. And that will happen probably around the middle of this month. And that's almost updated complete. It's like shooting fish in a barrel because wholesale prices have dramatically declined to drop in many cases below where they were before the Ukraine invasion. So you've got a little bit higher prices in the D.C. area in the northeast because you use reformulated gas, but even those prices and the wholesale markets have dropped 30 cents. So we're going to probably flirt with Joe DiMaggio's record streak of 56 days. In this case, 56 days of down moves next week. And we may get into the 60s before the middle of August. So what do you anticipate past that? I mean, can you even kind of project forward? You know, I think it can project, but you tend to say, I mean, right now, we're removing through a summer gauntlet where if you have hurricane formation in the gulf Mexico, where if you have power outages for refineries or if mister Putin is up to some of his ill well in Europe, you could see prices bounce back. But I don't think you'll see the street bounce back for the first three weeks of August. The rest of the world really does have to have its fingers crossed. And I think we have to, for the tropical development, which could really throw a monkey wrench into prices two or three months from now. So barring that, what is it? Is it OPEC stepping up production? Is it a better oil production and gasoline production in the U.S.? What factor is driving the downward trend here? Well, I think the market has priced in at least a shallow recession in the United States and perhaps in Europe. So a lot of the speculators have really exited and licking their wounds. The other thing is that Russia, for all of the scrutiny that is appropriately being rendered for them, they have been still exporting about as much fruit as they were before. The Ukrainian invasion and maybe that's because their own refineries don't demand much proof because they're in a deep deep recession or even something close to depression there. So we've been lucky, but you have to watch out for the world is a much more dangerous place than it's been for 20 years. So there's some things that can really sort of lead prices to bounce back. Not to the next three weeks. That's Tom close a global head of energy analysis for the oil price information service, crunching the numbers with Sean Hillary.

"Shark basically just comes right up and canada's eats her again that's at anxiety that oh that one always bothered me for some reason it was just like because she's so innocent she just so completely innocent and you can hear her in a voice that she's just trying to save the martha who played margie margie. Marj aren't large. She and her sister susie where two of the number one number two sailors in the world when they when she got cast in her sister.

It's funny when i was when we were on the gulf of mexico. It didn't feel dangerous at all. Despite the fact that the locals didn't want us there and they were chumming in the water when we were shooting trying to bring sharks to kill us while we were shooting the actual film so for some reason on the gulf of mexico it never bothered me never sold scary or anything even though you know you have these huge basking sharks go past you and you could have been scary. But had we filled it in the atlantic ocean. I would have been freaked out and most of the time. I'm either in the pacific ocean or the atlantic ocean. And i don't wanna on onto passenger gulf mexico. Just felt like it was just a big bathtub or something did read. There wasn't actual shark. They kind of came into the actual thing. Mike while y you're filming they literally were. There was a shark rodeo. The column which a fishing contest one peer down from the pier from our hotel and they only did that to piss off. They were jumping all the time and we were so naive the the they told the kids all kids. Don't worry about the sharks. We have Scuba divers with dark guns. So you'll be fine. Well if you know anything about sharks kept take two seconds. They're not gonna even have loaded that they. Yeah so. that was scary.

He followed it around for a couple of days. And then i think he accidentally was coming into shorting killed it by going on over the top of but the horrible story. Anyway how. I did read it as something kinda funny about the movie as in the beginning. Like when roy brody's character they find the orca kind of in he's like this is a shark and that was kind of like there was a little bit of movie. Trolling going on.

Well i don't even have to fall. And then i well he did fall so i think he only has like six left. Okay or is it nine life. I don't know how many lives nightline the nine lives. so he's got eight left all right. I guess account after that either that or he gained a couple because he gets saved. I never really was a miraculous safe. Would he have survived. Had the flag not drop. I think it depends on what it would have fallen on. Can you imagine if nobody saw it happened just fell in. Somebody's head frightening. Would that be you come when it happened watching the game. You're attacked by a cat. All these animals getting in these stadiums. What i wanted to seems like there's an animal a week Speaking of stadiums. I think the editing is done.

We got that and didn't take britney spears long to get hooked up. What is it with her and young guys to stop this nonsense. She's at cougar. Now that's coming up next little morning.

This diener a bill got more news top of the hour. Hey speaking of weather. Where did this nicholas storm. Come from that was He was just kind of hanging out in the goal. It was a blob and listen bone. I'm a tropical storm and i'm going go dump. They say up to twenty inches of rain on texas and possibly louisiana which does not need anymore rain. I didn't like the sound of that at all. It's i just didn't pay attention to it. They had the other blob. That kind of came ashore and right you know that moved away not the big storm but in this i only saw nicholas this morning. Yeah showed up. I think he reformed yesterday. Its bid it came out at really out of nowhere is an amazing. How many storms form in the gulf mexico never mind the ones coming off africa and the one the weather. The water is so warm. They formed quickly. It's kind of scary. So i don't know any more rain than hopefully it's like do much damage. No doubt about it How about this kind of overshadowed in the whole Weekend of college football pro football which was great to see full stadiums. And all this other stuff you know all the nine eleven events. There are several in florida's well of course in governor onto santa's at them. He used the opportunity to absolutely drop the hammer on joe biden. I didn't see this until sunday night. Did you see this. No they asked him. Some reporter asked him even though he's at the nine eleven event Joe biden's not saying you by name but we all know who he's talking about with the mask mandates because remember. They got another win. The state did on friday. Here's the first part of what to santa said but listen to the second part to why would you say generally what you're taking action as unconstitutional that threatens the jobs of the people in my state many many thousands a job. I'm standing for them. We're going to protect their jobs against federal overreach. Okay that's one thing. Wow but then jin. This is the strongest statement of ever heard to santa. Say about biden. Here he comes from washington. Dc instituting unprecedented mandate which even his own people have acknowledged in the past is not constitutional. That's thought leadership. And i think the problem i have with joe biden more than anything. This guy doesn't take responsibility for anything. Oh he's so right about that boy. That's a strong statement. I it but he's right and it's about time somebody at least in in his position said something like that in l. a. the afghanistan thing amazing. How quickly that just disappeared. But i assume somewhere along the line. One of those generals will go down for it. It won't be biden's fault In the mass mandate not his fault. Ill blamed foul cheeks right. He'll blame you. Know my buddy there show linski. And i can't stand that woman Or he'll blame. Somebody happens all the time. Oh it's not his fault that horrific jobs report week before last will lower-than-expected. We inherited this. You really didn't. Yeah it's a or it's trump's fault it's like okay. When are you going to start taking. You'll take responsibility by the way for raising taxes through the roof By the way it looks like mansion is Not gonna support that three and a half trillion dollar human infrastructure being billed back america better or whatever the hell it is and they have some other democrats bailing on it too. I can't remember who that is by. Now here's the thing they the house is saying. You don't give us the three and a half trillion dollar package to throw on top of the one and a half trillion dollar package. None of it's going to pass while so now they're they're playing hard ball and i'm like okay. Nothing's going to happen folks. Yeah that may may roll on forever. They wanted to swamp. But did you see the tax increases people from that. Make a lot of money. They're going to go up to almost forty percent. I'm like oh my god wow capital. Gains tax will go up five percents. That's not good. If you're selling a house no you know what in that doesn't just affect the one percent. That's somebody selling the house trying to retire and downsize right and then all of a sudden the profit you were gonna make going into the smaller house. Well there goes that because we have to pay capital gains taxes l. and corporate tax hikes by the way had that before twenty six and a half percent from twenty one percent but biden has been thrown around twenty eight percent. So you're gonna go up seven percent on a corporate tax rate. What do you think is going to pay for that. In the long run us public's has to pay an extra eight percent in taxes or kohl's or macy's or starbucks. What do you think is to pay for it not them. The customer will pass those lack of savings on to the consumer. That'll be it. You know what even walmart's gonna do it. Oh by the way speaking of walmart talk. I'm going off track stan here. Sorry my mind's wandering at all blends in that's okay. They gave everybody. You know that big race you know what they just took away bonuses. Do they really see you later. Bye yup just took him right off the board. Nobody gets a bonus anymore because we raised hourly wages. Everything is tied in together. It all has an effect is. It's like the example. You always bring up. They raised to fifteen alderson. It was literally the next day that was announced. I went into a walmart and no one was working like it. Was you know one cashier open. I'm like wow wonder what changed. Oh yeah yeah. They raised their rates to fifteen sixteen bucks an hour. Managers get twenty something bucks an hour now. Which i'm not saying. They don't deserve but eventually walmart isn't going to lose money. Course the not targets not gonna lose money no. Does you know like at my walmart. That i go to. There's eight checkout line self-checkout lines and one woman who just wanders from checkout when you got problems all the time and it's always the potatoes to me and it's like come on they does they. Don't scan the sticker like worse. I damn sticker and he got try to pull it in and sake doesn't doesn't register. It's the potatoes. I always prefer to try. Try to go to a person you know.

Taking a look outside downtown Lucas Oil Stadium, where the culturally playing on Sunday against the Seahawks looks like good weather, then and starting out with cool temperatures early this morning, 60 degrees out at the airport, but most of the outlying areas around central Indiana are in the fifties. And it's all quiet on storm tracker radar, in fact, all quiet around a big section of the country. A few showers way up here to the Northeast, moving out in New England and then a few scattered showers out far to the west. But the whole midsection of the country, including the Gulf, Mexico, all quiet right now, anyway from any tropical disturbances. 60 degrees at the airport by 54 up itself, Bend and 58 down at Louisville kind of tells you that this green area probably sees temperatures in the fifties. Maybe when some upper forties early this morning but with plenty of sunshine through the day and all kind of balances out to about 80 degrees, which is pretty close to the average for this time of year, a little bit warmer weather out to the West and that is headed in this direction. So it stays not quite as cool tonight 62 for the overnight low at the airport, But again, some areas getting into the fifties satellite radar through the night. Not much going on there, except some ground clutter and some showers up there northeast of Detroit. Otherwise, high pressure controls our weather through the weekend as it moves off to the East. You'll see the winds come around a little bit more to the Southwest, and that adds a little bit more humidity to the atmosphere and keeps that warming trend going. Looks like that low pressure in that front to the northwest of us not really going to be here for several days so that warming trend will continue. So for today, Up with sunshine up to about 78 80 degrees this afternoon after we're starting in the fifties early this morning, another very pleasant evening. If you're headed out for Friday night football or dining out or a concert or anything outside very comfortable goes from the seventies open. They need a jacket by the You're staying out late tonight as it drops back into the sixties once again. The Petermann forecast shaping up over the next eight days. Here's how that looks with temperatures, gradual warming trend back to some summer like readings as we head towards the weekend. So about 80 today and temperatures in the seventies for the zone for Friday night football in the 11 play tomorrow, a little bit warmer 85 tomorrow afternoon. 88 Sunday afternoon for the Colts game. Looks like it should be dry weather for us on Sunday and that warming trend keeps going ends in a chance for some showers on Tuesday night and Wednesday, But that's another Cold front that drops the temperatures back to some fall like readings at the end of the week ahead. But for this weekend looks like a warming trend. Coming our way, Stephanie. All right, Thank you.

"We don't expect european gdp to recover to the same relative level as american twelve months behind the us and because they haven't injected enough cash into the economy thing is that they and they not europe is a very complicated structure in the euro and all sorts of rules and whereas the us is a sovereign in a simple straightforward sense if congress decides and disposes of the fed keeps getting a pet. It keeps the pedal to the metal theoretic. Konami leaps forward And being months this year in which the us economy is probably grown more rapidly than the chinese economy. Something we would have anticipated and it's not equally good for everyone and of course the people at the top of american society will once again if done really well out of the fortunate enough to have any money in the s and p five hundred didn't have to do anything clever that you just kept it there you come out of this game. It's still breaking records all the time. The wealthiest people a big slices of that index and other ones have done unimaginably. Well out of this crisis. These averages are quite deceptive whereas at the bottom end as we know there are a whole bunch of folks millions of people who lost their supplementary employment labour day of rice. But you know this monday so you know this this tragedy within within this ongoing success story so it's a very mixed picture and of course we won't really know where we're up until next year or the year after because all of the difficult decisions are really. Can you keep your foot on the gas pedal or are you going to pull off and when you put off too soon that that's where we are now though is very rod. That is the whole debate. It's huge technical. It's all about trying to gas. What indicated tells you this which of the labor markets too tight and that's walk. The wall street journal bloomberg. Tv anytime if you turn on those channels that's the entire conversation now. Okay but those tend to come at things from the right and the american right. The republican party would have us stop now. enough stimulus. There's been enough money pumped into the economy. Let's stop even joe manchin. Who seems to be the guy who's holding up the progress moving forward with the build back better package along with the infrastructure Package he's saying now okay. We had a huge climate disaster last week When we really need to put money into fixing or dealing our climate crisis he says now's the time to to hit the pause button. No now now's the time to go full steam ahead and make these major changes my opinion to get people working again to get them working on green jobs rather than Shoring up the fossil fuel industry that contributed to get us in this mess in the first place. Where do you stand on this. We have those two bills that either will pass. I think together or won't go at all and we are at a crossroads aren't we we absolutely are and if if covy wasn't wake-up cool i just don't know what else is going to be. We we live in a fundamentally de-stabilize relationship with our environment. No place in the. Us is going to feel that more forcefully florida whether you're in the coastal regions just in the path of the ever increasing intensity of hurricanes. Sweep out of the carribean announced that the gulf mexico and america needs to prepare for this. It needs to contribute to the solution to the problem and it needs urgently to prepare for this. I mean ten. People were killed in new york taylor divider. We didn't even receive a direct hit. It was just that we can't cut that. All subway system is not set up for this that we have people drowning in that basement apartments. It's it's it's a it's a crying shame. There's no secret about where they mentioned coming from the guys. The senate west virginia and his family made its money in coal and he remains beholden to those interests and tactically from the point of view. The democrats nightmare. If he resigned. We'll probably get it republic. That's right you'll be worse right wearing wearing a cleft stick here and in fairness the people in the republican party. Somebody like jerome. Powell who's apathetic. He was a lifelong republican than a trump appointee to the fed. Chair is not trying to take his the gas. I mean the question. That's being asked there. If you follow the debate in media light wall street journal bloomberg you'll see this is actually big questions about what's good for the american economy and what's good for american business and on the whole. It's not obvious that taking the foot off the gas out this particular moment is the right move especially we don't know where the disease we don't know whether pandemics going right we could have another variant coming down the pike delta could get even worse than it currently already is and that you know that to use a sports analogy and i'm not a sports person so excuse me if i get wrong. But that's an unforced error. We have a vaccine. We should be passed this now. We should be on the downslope of this pandemic. But now it's looking more like this is something we're going to be living with for the foreseeable future and don't now we need to navigate the economy in that. In that vein. You know you just have. People denying reality who would rather take a horse de warmer than a vaccine. That's been proven to keep people alive so that makes no sense and we're stuck in the middle of this now. I think i read somewhere. You said that this is not a matter of whether or not we can afford it. We anything we can dream of that. That could help this society we can afford. I had i invited i got it wrong. Correct me if before we move on think we could actually do. We can do. We can dream anything we can actually do. We can afford and that turns out to be the real problem. I mean as you're saying we can even have axiom and what we can't do is ensure that everyone is because that requires us actually to agree with each other and that and that is really difficult to achieve in riot. So you know. I'm on twitter a lot. I interact with people. And there's a guy who used to be in congress from illinois joe walsh and he was aflame throw he was a tea bag or he was one of the worst of the worst was just a reprehensible excuse for a human being well now he seems to have seen the light he understands the evil. That is the former guy he calls out. You know the the abortion ban. He's he's saying the right things he saying. I was wrong so i invited him on the show. I thought i've always wanted to. I always say. I'll debate a republican as long as we can agree on the ground rules skies bluegrass green. Most of them won't do that. So here's one so let's talk and it. Was you know it was an okay conversation. What i got was he still not very well read. He doesn't understand. he never read. I told him to read stephanie. Kelton book the deficit myth. Because when i said what about the the infrastructure bill and well you know. I think we should do. The bipartisan one. But the not the other one because of the deficit and the like. Don't you understand how those would create. He just doesn't get it the p they're so close minded so he's opening his mind to some things but not others do you. What are what are your thoughts on that. What they're now calling the build back better bill. The the the budget resolution the three point five trillion dollar on bernie sanders birthday.

The tropics are definitely active As we're reaching the peak of our hurricane season later this week, there's a disturbance over the central Gulf Mexico and what forecasters are saying is that it's got a medium chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression as it gets closer toward the northern Gulf Coast, either tonight. Or by early tomorrow, and it's a little too soon to show indications of it possibly impacting at least a portion of our state. You can get to work to bear that deal.

Add up and it's true like even something as small as a haircut. How much money you could lead to over you know. A few decades is pretty impressive. So yeah just just to note. You don't necessarily have to cut your hair at home i like to have someone else. Cut my hair. It's quicker to have that done. It's less messy drive there to try the lesser. Yeah so You don't necessarily have a dog in this fight. So where people want to want aside at no problem with people painting it there seeing here to each his own her own. But it's nice to see the numbers and be like. okay yes. Is it worth it for me to start at home because it will mean a whole lot more money down the road if i start doing it myself but then again you might get passed up for the race because your hair looks awful.

You're picturing like one of these massive like like you're talking about these giant waves that people like the big wave surfers surf.

"And ranch news from around the world information. America's farmers and ranchers need to know on a now back to mike adams all right. Let's talk weather with meteorologist. John brennan john. We've talked pretty much all summer about these locked in weather patterns and not much change in them. Do you see any change anytime soon. Yeah we're actually going through one Now we an honestly. We did Last week so we saw Some pretty good rainfall across a lot of good Firm for much of the eastern corn belt last week and that was actually due to the ridge breakdown in the west and allowing some troughs to move into the central portions of the of canada. And the us this week that ridges breaking back down. And we're seeing them more towards the west so We will get Better chances for rainfall and actually across the western corn belt coming up here okay so those were an isolated incidents an actual breaking down of these ridges that we've seen that kind of held everything in place for so long. We're actually seeing those systems breakdown. Now yes so th the ridge that has been so strong. All summer is now week. It's still there and sit. But it's more pulsing than than it's stiff You know what it's been through for much of the summer. It's not very strong anymore. So it's allowing a lot of these troughs that have been kind of going over the top of it across northern canada. To get back down into the western. Us now so that's a good sign for active weather across the us over the next couple of weeks. At least yeah. A lot of it won't help crops this year. They've already been damaged. But it's much needed rainfall starting to get into some areas. How widespread you see this rainfall. it's going to be widespread over the northern plains for sure and that's going to start really here When we get to thursday and more likely friday and saturday first system that moves through There's a lot of heat and humidity out there in the northern plains right now and temperatures are near one hundred degrees. That's not going to change until the system moves through and so there's a lot of moisture and heat for this System to work with produce good thunderstorm activity There's it's thunderstorms so inevitably. There's going to be some spots that get missed but it looks very close to as wine spreads you can get for for Rent thunderstorm clusters moving across the northern plains. And that's just the first system to we have two more following rate in its wake One's kind of sunday into monday timeframe and another coming through in early to mid next week. That should help. Fill some of those gaps across the northern plains systems. Move into the the kind of east of the mississippi river. They're gonna lose their their punch a little bit. So we're not gonna see much widespread precipitation across the eastern corn belt but The western corner bell will really be happy about getting some more rainfall fisher mentioned temperatures. And as you said very hot as some places but other parts of the midwest Seen cooler than normal august temperatures so far a little bit yeah The systems that kind of move through last week Outside of the hot and humid temperatures chronic across the southern half of the The midwest they're on but Over the north area especially wisconsin michigan some portions of illinois and indiana ohio as well have really seen time just kind of rate at or just a little bit below normal And we're not going to see much change in that we'll see some better temperatures coming up here especially as we get into the weekend ahead of that system and through but We'll come right back down again. So temperatures. Really kind of moderate through through august is wall. Docu the detail meteorologist. John barack so john let's talk about through fall through august into september. I mean these changes in the ridges that you talked about exist setting up a a change for fall weather as well Probably not our forecast right now. is for hot or not necessarily hot but above normal temperatures. All the way through the fall across much of the country Now that's predicated on a lot of model output and We're going through a change in in In the line nina pattern so last Winter we were in la nina. Strong line union. We came back up. It's neutral category. That's where we're at right now. But we're headed back towards another line media and as we move that way we may see some changes in In our pattern a little bit more frequently than models are kind of suggesting so while we do expect some above normal temperatures throughout the fall. Probably some variable precipitation in a variable pattern with that so we may see some Variable temperatures where we get Really hot stretches and some Rather cool stretches as well. We're going la nina to anaemia nascar. Act we did that again in twenty eleven and thousand twelve so if you can remember those crop years. We're kinda doing the same same bouncing. That's not atypical I think. I don't know maybe exact statistics i think about. Seventy percents of lanya near years are followed by a second la nina so a second line union after after another one is not uncommon at all. We've got some tropical storm activity as does that send moisture very far inward or is that pretty much on the coast and that depends on how far into the gulf of mexico. They can get Really what we're looking at now. Is you know. Fred came in and that Into the east coast and that'll be moving through the east coast not spreading whole lot of precipitation or moisture westward Grace which is expected to go through. The gulf of mexico is expected to go through the southern gulf mexico and actually emerging in the pacific. So that won't be helping out any moisture and the the other one henry out there near the muda should be kinda stuck in the atlantic so that won't actually move into Into the us at all Any additional storms. That kind of developed here over the course of the fall will be kinda battling The changing weather pattern and it's gonna kind of really depend on where the highs and lows the upper level highs and those are at the time so typically in what our long range forecasters are calling for others. is more of a trough over the eastern. Us kinda tends to deflect those storms away from the us and maybe if it's a it's a it's a landfall. It'll be brief along the east coast and kind of work. Its way outward. But it tends to deflect off to the east and kind of thing like take a grace path where it goes through the southern gulf of mexico and doesn't really bring a whole lot.

But yes sir. They're monitored every single day and a lot of times based on what we've read online. It feels as if the data that you guys would use to research something like that like. Who's over you know. Give them a little more this. Give them a little. Less of that is who's on top. Who ak who selling tickets. Who's selling march. And who has the best ratings right.

Yeah it's it's when people get out of their home they buy tickets and they load up the car and they take the family down to the arena than they buy merch and they buy a hot and soda a they actually make an effort to come to see your event. Television is a little bit different. If you promote something in advance then you can attribute ratings to that if if people are tuning in just for that you see a bomb but ratings are more of a of a monitoring in you look for trends because how does the television audience. What's coming up next. You can tell them but they have to be. They already have to be engaged for your tell them what's next you can promote if you're promoting ahead week to week and you see big bumps with certain things and you see a trend than than ratings means something but really meant something is people get getting up low nut car coming out buying a ticket and participating live event or pay per view.

Astor World the Comets and Arrows much more recently, the disco Kroger. There's been a similar disappearance of some key landmarks over the years in Galveston. Wayne Jones is executive director of the Galveston Historical Foundation. Tommy Boudreau is co author of The book Lost Restaurants of Galveston's African American Community. Dwayne Tommy. Good Morning. Welcome to the program. Good morning, Dwayne. Let me start with you. What immediately comes to mind for you when we talk about things that used to be in Galveston, but are not anymore. Well, there are several that come up to me come to mind immediately. One of them that most galvestonians talk about is the loss of the Ursuline Academy, which was just off 25th street in Galveston. So after Hurricane Carla, uh, that building have had some significant damage and It was removed within a few years after that, but it's it's one of Nicolas Clayton. It was one of those Clayton's really spectacular religious oriented buildings. And so we lost that. Some years ago. So that's the first one that most local people talk about as being a significant loss. What else? What other ones right after that? Well, you know, hurricanes aren't very kind to Galveston. So it's been one of one of the things that's probably determined the fate of a number of buildings that we would hate to lose. But I also think of the balconies room. I don't know if people recall right after Hurricane Ike that was totally destroyed. And for those who may not be a player with the Balinese room, it stretched out over the Gulf of Mexico from Seawall Boulevard, and it just fell into pieces from the the power of Ike and 2000 and eight But it was the great story. It was one of those sort of almost romantic and romanticized stories today in Galveston. About the underground sort of gambling and entertainment community of the island and the the 20th century, particularly in the mid 20th centuries with the Maceio family, So and I had this wonderful kind of, if you if you all remember that and see those images from the past this wonderful kind of Asian influenced architecture. That just set out there on the water with the It was just really, really amazing Little building and so that that was totally gone. And people still talk about it still has. I think it has some Sort of a social media thing following it, even to this day. Tommy, what prompted you to want to write a book about black owned restaurants of Galveston's past? Want to be honest with you. Um we were going to publish a cookbook. Um That Dr Jones, Dwight Jones suggested that we do After the first book, Allison I published and As As Blaine has sad, um Our storms, uh, devastated us over the years, and we found that we couldn't find a lot of recipes because so many people lost everything doing Hurricane Ike. But as we, um Start hearing stories about some of the restaurant owners, some of the great cooks and Galveston we decided that we would tell their story and included many recipes as we possibly could. Tommy. What are some examples of some of those restaurants that whether they were lost during Ike or or from other reasons, other times from Galveston's past that we all should really know about. Listen, had always been known for, you know, excellent food. So, uh, we had a number of them barbecue restaurants. Uh um, uh, Oliver barbecue stand why? It was called saying I don't know, because he You is indoor eating into a dining tiptop cafe, Honey Brown, Uh, people had their choice of restaurants and If they like one person leaks and the other person deal. That was kind of how you know things wet and you know, we had people of all nationalities. It was time to those restaurant and The owners were really kind of the head of this. African American communities. They were the ones who kept up with all of the city issues and so on those things that would be relevant to the African American community, Dwayne are there other restaurants or hotels from Galveston's past that stick out to you as landmarks that have come and gone. There are and I would like to mention a couple of those. But I was going to ask Tommy as she might talk about which is my favorite lost restaurant in her book, which is called the squeeze in and the building is still there, I think, but I love that name, and she might describe a little bit about it because it was pretty pretty distinctive. Yeah, By all means, Tommy. Okay, squeeze and was in an alley. Um, and the first time I heard about it, the name was kind of like uncomfortable for me. But, uh, found out that it was Mrs Richardson and her daughter who ran this. Restaurant in the alley only had about six tables and when they would prepare of the food, they had a special menu every every day, And once it was gone, it was gone. So you have people lining up in that alley waiting to get in 11 o'clock. My memory of it.

They're hatches that need to be checked in this. I grew up around production on my dad. Pump oh wells. My grandfather pumped oil wells and trust me. You need the right people to do it right. And they're actually know what they're doing the shutting off valves no doing this stuff there ways to address the simple stuff of this first and then you really go after the hard stuff and that company. That dinner was hilarious. Because he was there and i showed up late and i was sort of dragged into the dinner and then i saw him at the table which was really funny. The conversation was it was. It was the first time. I've been out to dinner with eighteen people in those a lot of sure. We re probably violating some law. So i'm just keep that on the deal. Police would not be happy about that.
