Now you've been in the forefront at work what eleven months now on from november election and you know. We held a hearing gettysburg on the twenty fifth november at. We're no closer now to resolutions whole issue than we were back. then i've been undercut by the senate leadership. They stripped me. My committee chair. Because i was pressing ahead with subpoenas and that was going to have a vote. Issue subpoenas to several counties to get to the bottom of this year and is a great catastrophe.

"The Republicans in Harrisburg and basically gone to wolf and say we've now got the people on our side. It's now a mandate. And you you either want to fight with us or you want to work with us. What's it gonna be? He's indicated. Okay, Okay, okay. So he flexed one more time and extended this emergency one more time, And they're gonna Now it's gonna look like he's a reasonable guy who's negotiating. He's how do you This is like a guy who's holed up in a house. And it's surrounded with cops. And he thinks he's still negotiating. He's surrounded, so they're either going to drag him out dead. Where he can. Set down his are his weapon and come out with his hands up is basically the way this works now, so you'll see the Legislature flex a little bit with wolf to achieve. A scale back in this lockout, which is good news. But my broader point is the national Media doesn't wanna tell the story. You didn't see The New York Times of the L A Times, The Washington Post or anything. Network news. Nobody talked about this nationally. Why? Because they don't want the citizens. Of their respective legislatures are the representatives of the certain these respective citizens in their states to do the same thing. Holy crap. Ever. I told you local media. They kept saying first in the country with a first in the country to do something like this. This is repugnant. They were so although they hated it. You believe that? All these citizens, these commoners Voting to rein in our governor. How did all this is embarrassing? We have this great governor who had total control over all of us and these these people In places like Luzerne County. Yeah. Scougall County. Yeah. Fayette Cap Thies, these religious Hunting. From voting. Deplorable. Look They banded together and they dared take the power away from our dear leader. How dare they? That is? Believe me when I tell you in their core the way they feel In newsrooms across our city and across the commonwealth, really, because all media is primarily leftist. So national media said. We're not gonna tell anybody about this total blackout on what you did Tuesday. Total blackout. They do not want this catching on that the citizens can actually insist their governors be held accountable because they might pull that off in Michigan. They might pull that out. You know, we always think of New York is Deep blue, but it's only deep blue because of Manhattan. It's deep blue because of Long Island that's deep blue because of just one chunk. Where the population resides. But most of New York is a lot like Pennsylvania deeply red. Very conservative. There's whole chunk whole swaths of California that is the same. In fact, in the Pacific Northwest, they're talking right now about carving off. Whole chunks of Oregon. There's a movement right now you may or may not have heard of. I love it. This just titillates me to no end. It excites me What's happening in this country? It's it's federalism on steroids. It's wonderful. You've got these conservative counties in Oregon. On someone, even California but certainly organ specifically that have gone to Idaho. And they're like, Hey, Idaho. We want to join you. And we redraw the state boundaries so that we're not part of Idaho because we like the way Idaho Runs. We don't want to be a part of Oregon anymore, and there's an honest effort right now. In sight of Idaho to try toe annex per their approval. Obviously chunka Oregon now Oregon, of course, would never allow something like that happened. But I love the conversation. There's a total realignment happening on steroids in this country. People are moving where they want to live where people are free. People are fleeing the Northeast and they're moving down toe. Rhonda Sanders is Florida. Counties in Oregon are saying we want out of this. Dumpster fire. We want to join a conservatively run state like Idaho next door. It's beautiful. It's as designed. It's the way it ought to be. And this is what the press and the Democrats hate. They don't want this catching on. They don't like this idea of citizens rising up and saying No, you don't get governor to tell us what to do endlessly. In a pandemic. At some point, you're gonna have to be accountable to us and we get to tell you what to do. It's consent of the governed. Got it. This is all good stuff. There's a lot of reason to be very optimistic. Even in the midst of the mess that we find ourselves in inside Washington, D C. With Grandpa and the Shadow government of Barack Obama Re ducks. There's a lot of optimism to be found in the respective states out here even here in Pennsylvania, despite what happened in November. I'm I don't know. I'm or optimistic in a better mood here on this Friday heading into the weekend that I've been in a long time. You could see it. It was like, Didn't you notice that this week? I don't know. Maybe you didn't. Maybe it's just me and it's my attitude, but Like Wah Wah. Now why was officially on the record saying You come in here. Without a mask will assume you're vaccinated. That that happened like that. And other businesses. You're hearing it now. Everybody in Pennsylvania now suddenly has decided. If you're vaccinated, you can come in without a mask. Well, with the exception of the reprobates in Philadelphia and that government, but okay, setting them aside. Everybody else. Companies operating inside the Commonwealth. They're all saying, Look, we're okay. Now we're safe. They said they need one of my thing. Saying when we assert ourselves as the citizenry We have a tremendous amount of, say. These businesses all operated out of fear of one little balding, slope shouldered, mediocre loser. Called Tom Wolfe. They all operated in total, abject fear of him. Because we had an impotent legislature that couldn't stop him with a Supreme Court that fully backed him, and it seemed a citizenry who was willing to comply with his every order. So what businesses do to stay out of trouble. Whatever you want. Whatever you want. They were all held hostage. The second Tuesday happened in the second. That vote was counted in the second, We learned that the citizenry said no more the Republican Legislature has to sign off on what you're doing. Going forward. It was like a Cloud was lifted like this huge burden was lifted off of business owners shoulders and you can see it. You can see it and people all over. I see it in my kid's softball game. See it in bars and restaurants. I see it around. Town masks are off, people are smiling again. Why not? Because some government official did it, folks. You did it. We did it. We took control consent of the governed to beautiful thing. And that's where we'll leave it. It is a beautiful thing..

"Real estate. Harrisburg you yourself focused locally on the downtown or where where. Where's it whereas that you focusing real estate activity on so the area that i cover and mostly the area well are i was gonna say the area are multi lives covers but we just merged. I don't know if you've heard of the big. I'm now part of bright. Mls which is i. Think the biggest multi list In the country that encompasses multi-state. We merged a little while ago. But anyway Traditionally our market area is cumberland county and dolphin county and some a little bit outside of that. But those are the two main counties Within those counties you have harrisburg city. Which is the capital. And that's kind of the biggest downtown city around here. Which isn't that large and don't caught me on the population. I don't even know but it's not a lot So you do have anything from the downtown city like that again. Not big cities but down living. If you want that walkable and they're getting better at lancaster city is actually really really nice. Tons of arts and culture and lancaster but then we also you're gonna see cornfields for miles and by as soon as you leave all those little cities and we have a lot of coal towns too old coal towns that are kind of getting rundown but now having a little bit of a resurgence because of all these craft breweries these little kind of craft mom and pop shops. That are getting getting popular. And the millennials like living downtown until cove which is kinda messing everything up. But i think that will go back to that again. So we have everything from the downtown to if you wanna live next to a cornfield or a source. So i feel that that tends to be it Actually behind my house. There's a grass-fed cal field They come right into our fence and my kids to look at it so anything you want is right there. Also if anybody's heard the appalachian trail obviously anybody in the us knows you probably know. It's pretty big. Probably the most well known trail the us would think That's where i live is the center of the original center point of the appalachian trail. I could walk out my door and be on the appalachian trail Within less than a mile. I think so. I walk out my door and walk maine to georgia right out my door door boiling springs. Which is where i live. Is the little town. Where i live is actually a quote unquote appalachian trail community So tons and tons of history in the area and jobs galore and the standard of living. Pretty good what's right now and Obviously code was in Twenty two one still covert going on Apart from that what has been moving the real estate market's locally but was the trending false And wet you. Also maybe see the next the next months or years coming with respect to real estate like i said we're always pretty steady here and they're always building. We're actually kind of running out of land in the the better school districts and actually. I'm not allowed to talk about which school districts are better than others but We are running out of land in my in our area. And like i said we have the people from dc virginia or these kind of more expensive area that sometimes moved to central ea for jobs and things The state government as as things and as logistics amazon's growing online things are growing everything having to do with warehousing is growing so that's just booming in our area as well So they're all these jobs here. There's a shortage of inventory like everywhere else. I guess it's no different in that respect But we do have a shortage i will. I'll go over a little bit of numbers here. I'm not a big numbers guy. I just cut a know how it's going. But i did pull some.

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene.

After that when the hairband started going out we were called orange seed parade we played. Cbgb's in new york a number of times. And you know open for a couple of national acts over the years. So yes so. That's me in a nutshell so we can get a little more specific if you like Depending well you know the first thing that you said that caught my ear was the susquehanna river and i was thinking of that old. Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up.

Newt Gingrich and the Start of an Era
"This feels like an episode out of like not just a recent. It's not the recent past. Past the distant past I mean newt is still with us, but this is a very different time for newt, and I think that for many people he started to really appear on People's radars outside of Georgia in the early ninety s with a contract for America, but your book predates that so the book starts in the Nineteen Eighties when you Gingrich. Is this young? Young Congressman who comes from Georgia. He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help. Republicans become a majority in the House of Representatives which they had not been since nineteen fifty four, and he's intent on a not listening to senior members of the Party and to really. Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation. Deregulation, he believes importantly in a very muscular approach to fighting the Soviet Union and to fighting allies in places like Central America so though there are differences between him, and and some of the hard core inner circle of the Reagan administration. Generally they line up pretty well
The Supreme Court has turned away pleas from anti-abortion activists to make it easier for them to protest outside clinics
"This is a pre courts declined to hear an appeal from anti abortion activists we would hope to be able to bring their protests closer to abortion clinics there were two cases brought to the nation's highest court where activists from Chicago in Harrisburg Pennsylvania we're hoping to get local rules lifted on buffer zones to protect clients which prevent protesters from demonstrating too close to health facilities without further comment the justices said they wouldn't hear the cases this follows Monday's ruling against a Louisiana law that required hospital admitting privileges for abortion providers but the justices have ordered lower courts to revisit fetal ultrasound and parental notification cases in Indiana previously blocked by lower courts but now the Supreme Court's defined how to determine if a restriction is permissible or creates an unconstitutional obstacle for women Jackie Quinn Washington
Why the racism in facial recognition software probably cant be fixed
"Been proven that facial recognition software isn't good at accurately identifying people of Color. We also know that police departments around the country use facial recognition tools to identify suspects and make arrests, and now we know about what is possibly the first confirmed wrongful arrest made as a result of mistaken identification by software. The New York Times reported last week. That Robert Williams a black man was wrongfully arrested in Detroit in January. Joy Berlin. We has been researching this topic for years as a computer scientist based at the MIT. Media Lab and Head of the nonprofit Algorithm ICK Justice League. She says like racism. Algorithm make bias is systemic. This is not a case of one bad algorithm. What we're seeing is a reflection of systemic racism in automated tools like artificial intelligence right now where gambling with people's faces. Faces and homework gambling with people's faces were gambling with democracy I mean it does seem like awareness and policy around facial recognition are starting to catch up if slowly, but what more needs to happen, is that the role of companies alone to not offer the software, or is it the role of governments to stop police departments from using this technology? We can't leave it to. To companies to self regulate while we have three that have come out to that back from facial recognition technology still have major players who supplies h recognition technology to a law enforcement. We absolutely need lawmakers, so we don't have to accept this narrative. That technology is already out there. There's nothing we can do. We have a voice. We have a choice what we are pushing. Pushing for with the Algorithm Justice League is a federal law that bans face surveillance across the nation, so I am encouraged by the latest bill I've seen a from Congress so I would highly encourage support of that bill so that at least across the country there are some base level protections. You wrote this post. The ended with the line. Racial Justice Requires Algorithm Justice. Given that humans right the algorithms, this is sort of the the constant question. How can that be accomplished algorithm justice? I mean sure so when we're talking about our MC justice, it's really this question about having a choice having a voice and having accountability, and so what we're seeing with this wild wild west approach to deploying facial recognition technology for surveillance is the lack of choice. Lack of consent, and so when we're thinking about Algorithm, make justice it is this question about who has power and who has a voice in. It needs to be the voice of the people when we're talking about racial justice, the reason racial justice requires Algorithms Mc. Justice is increasingly we have. Tools that are being used to determine who gets hired who gets fired who get stopped or arrested by the police, what kind of medical treatment you might receive where your children can go to school, and so and so much as a I is increasingly governing and serving as the gatekeeper to economic opportunities educational opportunities. We can't get to a racial justice without thinking about Algorithm mic justice. Technology companies are so sure that there must be a way to make the technology work and make it work largely for good. and I wonder if you think the events of the past month have really changed whether they keep working on this technology or whether they might actually start to see the the real limitations that you have seen I along. Companies respond to the pressure of the people, and I want to emphasize that the announcement for IBM to stop selling facial recognition technology for Amazon to do a one year moratorium an for Microsoft to not sell to law enforcement came after the cold blooded murder of George Floyd protest in the streets, years of employees activism. We have a responsibility to think about. How do we create equitable and accountable systems, and sometimes what that means is you don't create the tool. Joy Bologna as a computer scientists at the MIT media lab, but speaking of tools we should not create researchers at Harrisburg University last week said they've created facial recognition software that can actually predict crime. We already know what could go wrong.
"harrisburg" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"I'm again when entrances I think I think what happened in Minneapolis and and what people were essentially protests in Pennsylvania was the sense of to Pennsylvania's and none of us white or black can afford to to live where we think it's okay for someone to be denied the adequate adequate resources when it comes to education or healthcare or housing or for the things that that we need to live full and and good lives so I think what we saw in the protests was there that's right that's what I saw in Philadelphia that's what I saw yesterday in Harrisburg and and so this is about what we need to do to rededicate ourselves to try to live up to the noble ideals this nation was founded in we will continue to to to do that I want to continue to do that I think that's really important that we know we're here to pass laws were here to do things to address specific issues but we're also stewards of a grand democratic tradition here we have a chance to actually make a democracy better for everybody governor wolf yesterday yeah the recommendations outlined today and the potential executive actions and so forth I was just curious if there's any of them that you feel are likely to have.
Hair Loss, Stress, and At-Home Treatments to Regrow Your Hair
"If you've been noticing more clumps of hair in the shower that could be a result of stress But we don't want to stress you out more because there are things you can do. Look I lost his little Patrick here. Living proof ride here but there are things that you can do right now at home to help that And one of the first things. We'RE GONNA START TODAY. We've got a wonderful guest She is a Harrisburg and she's actually know working with Bosley which I thought was just for men. But he educator there and What's so great is that she cleared up. A lot of the MISC- The misconceptions I had about Knoxville as everyone knows what Doxa Gul's the only thing that has been approved by the FDA that actually does regret hair and is active with the minoxidil though Is that something you know? Just speaking as a not a hair professional It's something that I've heard about right. Rogaine is another big brand that you hear about and I have a girlfriend who had significant hair loss. And that's what she was using. But it meant hawks ultimate always been a little bit scary right so is that other people should not be using or is it something. That's pretty safe for everyone. So there's a two different percentages on it. There's a two percent and a five percent. Typically the women use the two percents and the men used the five percent so You Wanna be able to Access that lower percentage If you feel necessary and then you can like start in slowly but I do recommend that you use at the same time every day And it's just like he would try to think about taking care of any other Any other area of your body. I mean you won't stop brushing your teeth with a certain kind of toothpaste. If you have great results from that so Ryan I mean but you get what I'm saying like do you think like pregnant woman shouldn't use yet so and doesn't make your hair fall out at first a little bit too? Can't that be an effect or am I totally wrong about this. Maybe I'm totally off. I'm sure one out of one thousand. Maybe it fell out but maybe he or she skipped a day or like you said didn't put it on at the same time at the same Torino at like. If you break your routine with these systems you can have a shed you absolutely can but is this something you think. Everybody should be using then. I'm even if it's like the hair. He knew it. If you're if you're like fresh out of Chemo and you just grew your new hair back now. Right no right right right. If you think you're going to get pregnant or you're infertility. No I mean it's kind of common sense. If you have other health issues you should obviously talk to your physician and throw that against the wall but I think majority of people can give it a whirl and just but if you're if you second guesses talk with your doctor so what is that program. Is it like once you start is it. You have to just keep doing it. Is it like a man which we know a lot of beauty things right like if you want Bo talks? You're going to have to keep doing botox to keep the wrinkles away if you want those eyelash extensions. You're going to need to keep doing them. The second you're not gonNA have those lashes if you want hair extensions so is this another thing that you're going to sort of add to your beauty toolkit but it's like once you start to commit to it. Yes if you're seeing results from it you definitely want to keep doing so Hair has three cycles. Everybody's familiar with you. Know Antigen intelligent and Cata Jen. So when you're in the resting phase During that phase. That's the time that you want to make sure that you're speeding up that process when that new hair growth is starting to come back in and you also want to keep the hair that you have so you're definitely trading from a clinical approach. She knows that hair follicle and you're waking up and speeding up that rusting cycle where that new hair can come back and through so you're seeing results in your getting hair growth. You definitely want to eat using that. So somebody WHO's been bald for thirty years all the back And that her follicle is no longer producing hair. Are you going to get results from Minoxidil? Maybe not so that definitely you WANNA wake up that hair follicle and you WANNA speed up that process for that new hair to come back through. How do you feel about the the caps or the headbands with the red light therapy? Your what's your what's your take on those those are showing a lot of promise and those also There's lots of before and after she now that are online. So it's one of those things it's like you know what works for one person may not necessarily work for all if you know works for the majority and if it works for you definitely keep doing it. You have to be insisted on that you have to use it. You know. Every single day In addition to the other three sixteen approach that you're doing I personally noticed when I combined all three. Wow it was the trio of fact for

Novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen on Cultural Authenticity
"You grew up in San Jose California. Your parents open a grocery store tells about that experience. What was that like in? What was their journey like what what brought them here. Why did they come to California? My family fled the Vietnam War. But I'm thirty thousand other Vietnamese refugees because we were on the losing side and my parents in particular. Were were hardcore Catholics and Hardcourt Catholics Communists. And so they fled from the communist twice in nineteen fifty four when the country was divided and they were in the north to the south and then they fled again in nineteen seventy five so the refugees twice and then they came resettled in Harrisburg Pennsylvania For few years And there you have to realize my parents have been very successful. In Vietnam. They'd been born. Peasants work their way up and became wealthy and then lost a lot of that coming to the United States arrived here as refugees and their American sponsors expected them to be poor refugees. Who would be satisfied with class or even menial jobs and that's what they did in Harrisburg for a few years. But they'd obviously we're not satisfied with that and a good friend in San Jose who said this is a promised. Land and weather's good. There are a lot of Asians out here and I just opened up a grocery store so they came out and worked with her at probably the first Vietnamese grocery store in San Jose in nineteen seventy eight and then opened the second Vietnamese grocery store right down the street for some reason. I don't have their friends all about that. But you know we live the Classic Refugee or immigrant American Success Story. Which meant you know? My parents climb the ladder yet again. Rebuilt their wealth and that exacted huge physical and emotional toll on them and emotional toll on me. I'm thankful they didn't make me work in the store because they didn't want me to do that. They wanted my brother to get an education but what I saw growing up. Was My parents working twelve to fourteen hour days almost every day of the year and working in a very dangerous environment you know there was shot in their store. We were robbed at gunpoint at home. My parents were always very paranoid about these kinds of issues. And I'm saying we had this class classic immigrant refugee story because they spent all their time working in order to support my brother and me and and and give a good life but of course what that meant. Is there no time to spend with us? So that's just the classic immigrant or refugee double bind and that's part of what it meant to be having this lonely traumatized childhood for me. Which in the positive sense gave me the requisite emotional damage necessarily become a writer thankful for that inherited trauma you mentioned earlier. And it's something that's really hard to explain to the everyday reader because it sounds a little bit academic you know but like when it comes down to is basically like what your parents went through and how it affected you. I don't know if you could kind of talk about the specifics of that any sort of characteristics that your parents might have passed down well. My parents were devout Catholics and Catholics. Like to suffer so in a sense we were very well equipped to deal with being refugees and immigrants because my parents suffered a lot Both in terms of just having to work really really hard and and also of course they. They survived thirty years of war in Vietnam from Nineteen forty-five to nineteen seventy five which which killed millions of people. So I have no what they had to go through to become the people that the Rx conceptual way. That's the consequences of that. Just in terms of their refugee shopkeeper lifestyle and even though they became very successful financially in the inheritor of that I also grew up feeling that we were poor made a lot of money but they were not spending it on anything and I think that watching them suffer in watching them work as much as they did. Made me not want to do what they did? But ironically I've turned into someone almost exactly like them in the sense that I work constantly now working very nice job being a professor and being writer but I'm always working and I suffer in my own way. Not Getting not in the grinding way that shopkeepers have to go through. But writing has kind of a a suffering for internal suffering journal suffering right but if you ask any writer will most writers. They're tormented by the struggle being a writer and as elite of a lifestyle as at as it is Nevertheless I think I've I've been quipped to deal with that. Based on what? I saw my parents go through and just absorbing the workaholic Catholics lifestyle. I think in my life own family. Like the way that my mom is very sort of pathological about saving money and maximizing it and that's because she grew up very poor now. I find myself thirty two earning enough money to buy a pair of shoes. The costs more than twenty dollars. Now that make you feel free. Can't do you really can't you know and and somebody told me that? I had the shoes of a restaurant worker a couple years ago now. I need to fix this and even my dad. You know when you go back home and they do your laundry for you. Here's looking at my clothes. You know it was like you need new clothes. Why don't you buy some new things you know so these things will leave a mark guy off of that what year work is in the kinds of writing that you do require so much self-knowledge as well you grew up in the bay area which is a diverse place. I also grew up in East Bay. Your south by East Bay But for me being Asian American as a kid in a very diverse place was great in some ways because it's diverse and I didn't stand out in the ways that frank for example in Tennessee has talked about very different but by the same token there are things that you've written about your experience growing up. I really relate to in that I was so intensely aware of the otherness other people perceived when they looked at me and it gave me a chip on my shoulder head a lot of like anger and resentment about the and it was really hard to know what to do with that for a long time so then to become a writer who writes about these things. You know. You're not running like fairy tales or SCI FI movies. You're you're writing is very close to these experiences in. I wonder how did you process what enabled you to get to that point? And and what was your experience like growing up. Well it's kind of interesting they'll give hearing about both of your life experiences because you could see where Franks experience would mean that. He would obviously feel like a complete other yet. We grew up in the multicultural bay area and I grew up in Vietnamese and Mexican neighborhood and so on but I still felt that that sense of otherness. And I think that's because even if we did live in a multicultural environment Dominant American culture is still was and still is dominated by white people inside like to say. I didn't really experienced that many direct episodes of racism experts if you've small ones but nevertheless I felt like we were all irradiated by racism. Just out there on the airwaves you know from. Tv Movies Radio Shock. Jocks this kind of stupid stuff that was going on. And so I felt that on absorbing that another hand also receiving support from the Vietnamese community and from an implicit Asian American community. So I went to this all white high school mostly. What High School Bunch of us? Who were of Asian descent? We knew we were different. We just didn't know how so. We've gathered a corner of the campus every day for lunch and we call ourselves. The Asian invasion reclaimed didn't have the language we knew her Asian. But we most of those guys never became political like I became political. So what happened. I think it was a combination of this Catholicism that I was raised with the suffering and the sense of sacrifice willing sacrifice I'm going to be a martyr and then I went to Berkeley and I was already an atheist. I couldn't be a Catholic martyr. Became an Asian American martyr. You know at Berkeley became immediately radicalized there and that was partly through political activism on the campus but also wanting to be writer in the context of the traditions of Asian American African American literature but also American literature I did a PhD in American literature. And I thought I'd I'm not going to refuse being Vietnamese or Asian American but I'm also at the same time going to claim my Americanised as well. I'm gonNA write stuff that goes in both directions. I did have big chip on my shoulder. Still do around about people just aren't angry enough. I came out of a Berkeley tradition. Where anger was good. Being radical was good. And then you look out at the landscape of Vietnamese and Asian literature. Sometimes you think well it's well written but maybe there's enough anger that's not enough politics in there. There has been in the past so I wanted to be someone who would incorporate both the politics of the Asian American tradition with what I imagined to be the highest levels of aesthetics and literature. That was my

"Five AT Harrisburg ladies and gentlemen please welcome today's guest host Matthew people of earth you know I want to say how exciting it is to see you all here but it it's kind of you know it's up and down but it is a pleasure to be here guest hosting for rush Limbaugh today and I'm thrilled that you're listening one of the things that has been frustrating for many people is where to get the information about the corona virus where do you get it and it it it's easy to say well just did just turn on the news but you know what's happened to that in the last several years what we're gonna do today is piece by piece we're going to break down and explain and chances are if you're a rush listener you are already plugged in to what's going on but there's just little peripheral pieces of information that are confusing something comes in about an age or a or a demographic or a new way to transmit or there's the rumors all the rumors are crazy I just spoke to someone in the hall they said their wife called them and said are we under martial law so we're going to alleviate some of the things that are going on so I want you to share text your friends tell your friends because we have a lot of great needed information today I'm having a friend of mine come on in about thirty minutes and he happens to be a surgeon and the chief medical officer at a hospital in central PA and he he's been on this thing for months and he has got some updates that will shock and pleasantly surprise you R. as you know many cities are and I use that term loosely locking down there's a lot of voluntary things going on a given example the governor of Pennsylvania spoke recently in he voluntarily asked people to close your shortened business hours etcetera or or there's so many different terms now they're self isolation there's self quarantine us social distancing there's a whole new language and but he did it voluntarily and within minutes on on the internet people were over reacting to something that's voluntary for example one of the biggest pieces of information that I think people are getting confused is this Stafford act and you may have seen the headlines because president trump has now signed the second corona virus response bill this is hours after Senate passage in this particular legislation you get fourteen days of paid sick days to workers affected by the corona virus this ensures free testing to everybody including the uninsured it expands food aid and boost unemployment dollars to states among other things but again people see this he signed the Stafford act this is the disaster relief and emergency assistance act of nineteen eighty eight what does it do it does not mean armored vehicles are rolling down the street and they're taking your guns that's not what this means it means the delivery of federal technical financial logistical and other assistance to states and local localities okay that is authorized but in addition FEMA will coordinate the administration of disaster relief resources and assistance to states federal assistance is provided under the Stafford act if an event is beyond the combined response capabilities of the state and local governments also the president can now ask private businesses I don't like the word force but let's say engage private businesses to prioritize the needs of the people because we're in a crisis worn a state of emergency for example three M. is on right off the top of my head they make mask so they're gonna shift with other companies and they're going to make things that we really need right now now keep in mind no one expected to have to buy a mask just like no one expected that there be lines for toilet paper but that's that's for another segment but what the president has done and I am impressed with it a lot of people are he stepped back and he looked at what do we need to do to mobilize the private sector the public sector and people individually because that's something else we're going to talk about on the show today and it's it's part of the conservative dynamic anyway and that is we all have to expect a certain amount of responsibility from ourselves and I that's why I mentioned the conservative you know rushes talk about this for years you have to be responsible for your own actions and if someone comes to you and says you know if you put your hand on that still you're gonna get burned so the majority of Americans want to do the right thing they are doing the right thing I'm of the belief that this crisis what we will learn from this is going to be so beneficial down the road and we're gonna revisit that as well but we're going to have this surgeon on we're gonna talk about myths are we're gonna break down more of this legislation and I want to call your attention to I don't know how you're following this there's a place there's a couple sites that I use I know it's tempting to turn on the news and I'll knock the news later because I'm not a big fan of mainstream news media who is right by the way if you're just tuning in it's the Rush Limbaugh show my name is Ken Matthews and the numbers eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two we are living in a surreal time I said yesterday to somebody I said this feels like a month Monday felt like a week the last two days felt like twenty so we live in the surreal time and the most frustrating thing for me and I hear this from people all the time is incomplete information for example most people can tell you that we have two hundred twenty seven thousand total confirmed cases in a minute in on the globe on the globe okay out of the seven billion and a lot of people can quote the death toll we're over nine thousand dead so far globally but what about the total recovery number eighty four thousand five hundred as of two hours ago now if you go to my Facebook page at Ken Matthews I've got this coronavirus co team global cases this is from the center for systems science and engineering at Johns Hopkins what they've done is they pulled in aggregate of information from world health CDC Jennifer disease control and national health organizations as well all combined for the

"B. five AT Harrisburg ladies and gentlemen please welcome today's guest host K. Matthews people of earth you know I want to say how exciting it is to see you all here but it it's kind of you know it's up and down but it is a pleasure to be here guest hosting for rush Limbaugh today and I'm thrilled that you're listening one of the things that has been frustrating for many people is where to get the information about the corona virus where do you get it and it is it's easy to say well just did just turn on the news but you know what's happened to that in the last several years what we're gonna do today is piece by piece we're going to break down and explain and chances are if you're a rush listener you are already plugged in to what's going on but there's just little peripheral pieces of information that are confusing something comes in about an age or a or a demographic or a new way to transmit or is there still room March all the rumors are crazy I just spoke to someone in the hall they said their wife called them and said are we under martial law so we're gonna would levy eight some of the things that are going on so I I want you to share text your friends tell your friends because we have a lot of great needed information today I'm having a friend of mine come on in about thirty minutes and he happens to be a surgeon and the chief medical officer at a hospital in central PA and he he's been on this thing for months and he has got some updates that will shock and pleasantly surprise you as you know many cities are and I use the term loosely locking down there's a lot of voluntary things going on I'll give an example of the governor of Pennsylvania spoke recently in he voluntarily asked people to close or shortened business hours etcetera or or there's so many different terms now they're self isolation there's self quarantine us social distancing there's a whole new language and but he did it voluntarily and within minutes on on the internet people were over reacting to something that's voluntary for example one of the biggest pieces of information that I think people are getting confused is this Stafford act and you may have seen the headlines because president trump has now signed the second corona virus response bill this is hours after Senate passage in this particular legislation you get fourteen days of paid sick days to workers affected by the corona virus this ensures free testing to everybody including the uninsured it expands food aid and boost unemployment dollars to states among other things but again people see this he signed the Stafford act this is the disaster relief and emergency assistance act of nineteen eighty eight what does it do it does not mean armored vehicles are rolling down the street and they're taking your guns that's not what this means it means the delivery of federal technical financial logistical and other assistance to states and local localities okay that is authorized but in addition FEMA will coordinate the administration of disaster relief resources and assistance to states federal assistance is provided under the Stafford act if an event is beyond the combined response capabilities of the state and local governments also the president can now ask private businesses I don't like the word force but let's say engage private businesses to prioritize the needs of the people because we're in a crisis warning state of emergency for example three M. is on right off the top of my head they make mask so they're gonna shift with other companies and they're going to make things that we really need right now now keep in mind no one expected to have to buy a mask just like no one expected that there'd be lines for toilet paper but that's that's for another segment but what the president has done and I am impressed with it a lot of people are she stepped back and he looked at what do we need to do to mobilize the private sector the public sector and people individually because that's something else we're going to talk about on the show today and it's it's part of the conservative dynamic anyway and that is we all have to expect a certain amount of responsibility from ourselves and I that's why I mentioned the conservative you know rushes talk about this for years you have to be responsible for your own actions and if someone comes to you and says you know if you put your hand on that still you're gonna get burned so the majority of Americans want to do the right thing they are doing the right thing I'm of the belief that this crisis what we will learn from this is going to be so beneficial down the road and we're gonna revisit that as well but we're going to have this surgeon on we're gonna talk about myths are we're gonna break down more of this legislation and I want to call your attention to I don't know how you're following this there's a place there's a couple sites that I use I know it's tempting to turn on the news at all not the news later because I'm not a big fan of mainstream news media who is right by the way if you're just tuning in it's the Rush Limbaugh show my name is Ken Matthews and the numbers eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two we are living in a surreal time I said yesterday to somebody I said this feels like a month Monday felt like a week the last two days felt like twenty so we live in the surreal time and the most frustrating thing for me and I hear this from people all the time is incomplete information for example most people can tell you that we have two hundred twenty seven thousand total confirmed cases in America in on the globe on the globe okay out of the seven billion and a lot of people can quote the death toll we're over nine thousand dead so far globally but what about the total recovery number eighty four thousand five hundred as of two hours ago now if you go to my Facebook page at Ken Matthews I've got this coronavirus co team global cases this is from the center for systems science and engineering at Johns Hopkins what they've done is they pulled in aggregate of information from world health CDC center for disease control and national health organizations as well all combined but the N. I. H. I'm sorry the National Institute of health that's one source it's a map it's interactive it tells you state by state country by country recoveries deaths it's sector and I was talking to doctor to loan who's going to be on in about twenty minutes you're really gonna wanna you're gonna want to hear this guy tell your friends if you have friends that are not for lack of a better term freaking out tell a make sure you're listening to the Rush Limbaugh show at twelve thirty ishe because Brett knows his stuff and he just got an update twenty minutes ago I spoke to him in his office at the hospital you just got an update what what bothers me when I see all this information across the ticker tape you know the big screens on the news media it might be the same thing that bothers you okay they'll say you know seventy five new cases twenty eight people die that means nothing to me because I want to know ages I want to know where people traveled I want to know their health conditions you know are these people with pre existing conditions that they have respiratory issues I have a shocking statistic I'm gonna be sharing with you in this hour it's going to blow you away I just got new updated information from Italy and when I share this information with you you are gonna wonder why the hype level is so high and we have to be very careful walking you know we're walking on egg shells because if you if you say don't panic you don't have to lose sleep at night people think that you're downplaying it and if you say obviously we're all gonna be dead by the end of the show well then you're overplaying it and I hope that's not the case because I told my wife I was gonna get toilet paper Costco on the way home so I have to live till the end of the show but what we're gonna do today is we're going to review all the big pieces of information who has what where where did it start how do you treat it how far along are we on a vaccine how will it impact your business I happen to think you know our our Donald Trump is my favorite capitalist president and I think so far so good on the effort he is making to bring comfort and calm to the situation for example I think it's great that the IRS delayed the payments for ninety days now being the conservative I am I think that they should eliminate taxes till the end of the year that's just my and I you know I said the president attacks I'm sure he's too busy to read it but why not but the fact that you know we we got rid of the payroll tax temporarily were delaying this we're doing that there's talk of money being sent out we're gonna have an update on that I know a lot of people are excited about that the first thing I said to my wife I don't know if you said this I said you kidding me they're gonna start sending out big big checks a thousand two thousand you know my eighteen year old he heard it got wind of it he heard what what took his head off the games because that's what they're doing now everybody's out of school right they're all playing games quality time with call of duty or whatever that is there's a new seal game out is it what what it is is that a check I said to my wife we need to intercept a check because he's eighteen and the and the thing is if you're over eighteen you could you could get a relief check the most important thing we need to do is take the information organize it and then use our own common sense I understand that many times and I don't think it's happening in the world in the trump administration but many times the government has a tendency to think they're smarter than you or may at I don't think that's the case I think it's obvious if you've ever heard Chuck Schumer speak and the same thing happens with the news media so I actually I was talking about about this yesterday I said I'd like to talk to surgeons about surgery and doctors about doctor stuff and then I like to laugh for joy Behar don lemon I mean there there's there's comedy and there's credibility so make sure you're telling your friends and tuning in today because you are going to leave the show today with a better understanding of this crisis on a world level and in in your own communities my name's Ken Matthews I'm sitting in for rush Limbaugh will be right back you're listening to the EIB network here about it newsradio seven forty KTRE.

trying to understand there's an adventure you've been through just to get on the air and water yes glad you persisted so this is a long time coming out how much debt did you guys pay off we pay it off eighty seven thousand dollars cool and how long did that take you about twenty four months all right and your range of income during that time we start about eighty four thousand and then this year were we ended up the ball this year that just on a we have that one twenty six we all do for a living so I work for a school district as a behavior analysts and I work for a major shipping distribution company okay very cool what kind of that was in the eighty seven thousand so we had an adjuster on thirty seven thousand in student loans we had a loan with Brian's parents because they had to help us out at one point and then the rest was car loans and credit cards how much of it was cars sixteen thousand she's kind of normal yeah a little bit of every kind of debt all right so how how long you been married just over six years we just hit six years in December yeah so what happened twenty four months ago win or plus or minus when you decide to get out of that what was there was a story that got you started well we had talked about paying off that and because those are a lot of stress on us and everything and we were trying to kind of do our own thing in trying to like out smart it but never actually working a plan and then about twenty four months ago my wife has under podcast and showed it to me I was so listening to it and based on common sense and everything that you it's just made perfect sense and so listening more more and just started working craze another time just not just start knocking off the little death like crazy now so in that case I gave me hope yeah I know yeah enough to go to work and hang on the extra hours yeah yeah wow way to go man congradulations very proud of you guys a phenomenal job so how's it feel to be debt free if you run mazing like just the weight off your shoulders like when you're in debt and you're taking on new that you keep thinking like what we can do that minimum payment we can make the minimum payment but when it all adds up it isn't so much on your mind and then when something happens out of the norm and you have that emergency and you don't have the funds to cover it it's just so stressful so now like you know just even things as simple as taking our dog to the vet and figuring out that they need you know a four hundred dollar medication a we can actually budget and pay for that and not Georgia it just feels amazing okay yeah I does it give you just that since a room that since our margin in your life there's a piece of that in there sure yeah I'm so proud of you all well done who were your biggest cheerleaders our families but also each other actually we have different personalities when it comes to money like Brian's amount third and I'm definitely a Spender so there are some hard conversations at times where he kind of had to write me a little bit but it only brought us closer in our marriage so what do you tell people the key to getting out of that if you did it you paid off eighty seven thousand freaking dollars so one thing that I always if I people say they're struggling I was tell them is like you have to have a wire and I always believe Asia three wives because there's three things that like you said they can do with money and maybe set to I think the main focus was like you know saving slash getting out that like securing giving ourselves that solid foundation which we knew later on then would allow us to give and enjoy and all that and it kind of just as a transitional thing but we always had there's three lies and every time we do a budget meeting my while I was sitting next to me my wife hi my family and no that always has made me it didn't matter how many hours at work I have that if I got tired of thought about that and I was fine absolutely absolutely that's cool man that's very good that's a good it's a good way of looking at a good way breaking this down good job very very cool very cool so what's the next thing you're off to what he can do now well right now are we just finished building our fully funded emergency fund so now we're setting something in on the side for a vacation and we're gonna be saving for a car at some point we don't need one yeah but we just wanna make sure prepared when that time comes so no more death no more than a lover you're broke the chain forever yeah are you to our both thirty two

"Harrisburg ladies and gentlemen please welcome today's guest does Matthew Lewis while great to be here Hey hope you're having a a wonderful thanksgiving a wonderful Black Friday sadly I had to shift around the first segment of the show a little bit because if you haven't heard there was a terrorist attack it's it's officially being called a terrorist attack in London it was on London Bridge I want to bring you up to speed on that and then we'll and then we'll we'll lock and load for open line Friday my name is Ken Matthews thank you so much for listening it was so exciting this morning I'll tell you about that after in New York on Black Friday it's it's in a very very exciting time and we're live in New York on the Rush Limbaugh show so here's what happened in the last couple of hours while we were preparing the show eight of single attacker one guy stabbed it it appears to be six people on London Bridge three are seriously hurt I I would imagine any slash is serious but so we have six victims all are still alive this was on the London Bridge the suspect here the you know if you're listening to Rush Limbaugh there's a good chance you are a positive thinker you're a glass half full kind of person that's just a trait of conservatives is something I've noticed growing up I see it I listen to rush all the time I hear the callers here's the one positive takeaway from this horrible situation this guy is on the bridge and he's got a knife it looks like because I've seen surveillance video already it looks like at twelve inch knife maybe at at maybe ten or twelve at least okay and citizens of London civilians take him down they take him down people are walking Bonnie it's it's Black Friday it's the day after thanksgiving and there's a hostile in a bustle and they see someone being attacked and they spring into action they take this guy to the ground and they disarm him meanwhile the police are are coming in this is this is nothing against the police because there there on the scene as well and we should that's the one take away that's the one take away how many times have you seen someone being attacked and somebody just goes looking attack I think I'll put this on my YouTube account that didn't happen today that didn't happen people said my god this guy stabbing people let's get on course they probably said let's gather or however they say it so here's what happened at the end this is why many people are calling this a copy cat to the attack of roughly two years ago when three men had knives and you may remember the three men were wearing fake explosive devices so they get the guy down he's disarmed the police roll up his jacket is opened and now the police tell everybody get out get out get out move away now everybody that was holding him down the civilians that risk their life they're all pulling out and the cops see the vast and I gotta tell you they're heavily armed this is this was these were not then these were not the London knights stick cops these were not you know you better back up or you'll get a you'll get a warning now that these guys had very nice artillery with him soon as they realized that's a that's a bomb belt or whatever they called a bomb vest done he was done so the terrorist is dad and the victims are in the hospital that's we know so far but again that's the take away as I was watching this surveillance I was going all my god here's people that don't even know they don't know each other personally in there they all just decided to risk their lives to take down do you know what I'll tell you I see what a one inch knife can do it takes a lot of courage to to charge someone with a with a knife let alone ten or twelve inch knife so so that's the update and you'll hear the term copy cat the reason they're using that is because this is now the second attack in London on the last two years for two and a half I forget the the initial day on that where they use fake fake bomb vest so that's kind of that's the update there and it is officially of a terrorist attack we have a lot going on today by the way and the biggest thing and I'm so glad you're with us it's all righty the number is eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two I'm Ken Matthews in for America's anchorman on the EIB network it is Black Friday in very quickly let's just review the numbers are they better than last year yes of course they are president trump is president four billion dollars was spent yesterday just on thanksgiving now that's given some thanks you think about the pilgrims and I would I would recommend any of rush's books including the the kids books they're great right here we think about the pilgrims and how proud they would be to know that this incredible place that all started back then generated four billion dollars just in thanksgiving revenue and what is what is a better way to give thanks then to wait in line at a mall and throw some cash around which reminds me an a and this is this I'm looking at you guys in the in the control booth please keep my Christmas gift under five hundred dollars this year seriously I mean if you want to split it whatever don't go crazy and that goes for you too because they're like the total it reached two billion dollars by five o'clock that's a twenty percent increase compared to last year so this is more bad news for Democrats things just keep going better they get better they're improving the right direction wrong direction the people more people now think we're going in the right direction this is bad news in fact several websites crashed but they got back up there is a the cosco site app of it got back up thank god my wife was not on it at the time because she would have melted down she's big cosco gal and we're looking to spend about seven hundred and thirty one billion dollars in November so that's the projection and once again I'm in the New York for Black Friday or as mayor de Blasio calls it Moscow on the Hudson Bloomberg is running this was the every week America gets a gift of comedy from the Democrat party there is a comedy lineup that is now stronger than anything SNL has ever delivered every week there's a new character there's a new line up we have a we have the native American gal Elizabeth Warren the pregnant lady we all this is incredible he booted shared with us great people are dropping out and get back in and then they can't remember if they dropped out there's about forty seven people running down the Democrat side and now could Julian billionaire Bloomberg who just spent thirty six million dollars on ads last week I bet people don't even know who this guy is if if you go if you go past Staten Island bloom who are you spend thirty six million dollars on what anyway here's the problem with the blue bird thing Bloomberg news service which you may be familiar with the news agency has agreed not to investigate democratic candidates now what's wrong with that picture so apparently Bloomberg wants to be like the mainstream media well that I mean that's the problem now Bloomberg wants to be like CNN now Bloomberg wants to be an extension officially of the Democrat party a former editor said this is truly staggering journalist at Bloomberg news deserve a hell of a lot better said the former editor of the Bloomberg businessweek editor in chief John Milken waiting outside the new rules in a note to two thousand seven hundred journalist there is listen to this listen to this there is no point in trying to claim that covering this presidential campaign will be easy for news room that is built up its reputation for independence in part by not writing about ourselves Bloomberg started his new service in nineteen ninety to complement the financial information he sold the customers it operates a TV and radio network it's separate sector sold their pledging not to investigate democratic candidates and this sounds to me like a F. E. C. a federal election if you're basically not investigating an entire political party aren't you running interference for your guide Bloomberg who's running against the field of that entire party of course forty gonna do the billionaire's I mean I'm sure you've heard Bloomberg speak he's a lot smarter than most of us it's amazing how do you even get away with that eight hundred two eight to twenty.

civilians that risk their life they're all pulling out and the cops see the vast and I gotta tell you they're heavily armed this is this was these were not then these are not the London knights stick cops these were not you know you better back up or you'll get a you'll get a warning now that these guys had very nice artillery with him that's a that's a bomb belt or whatever they called a bomb vast done he was done so the terrorist is dad and the victims are in the hospital that's we know so far but again that's the takeaway as I was watching this surveillance I was going all my god here's people that don't even know they don't know each other personally in there they all just decided to risk their lives to take down do you know what I'll tell you I see what a one inch knife can do it takes a lot of courage to to charge someone with a with a knife let alone ten or twelve inch knife so so that's the update and you'll hear the term copy cat the reason they're using that is of because this is now the second attack in London on the last two years for two and a half I forget the the initial day on that where they use fake fake bomb vest so that's kind of that's the update there and it is officially of a terrorist attack we have a lot going on today by the way and the biggest thing and I'm so glad you're with us it's all the number is eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two I'm Ken Matthews in for America's anchorman on the EIB network it is Black Friday in very quickly let's just review the numbers are they better than last year yes of course they are president trump is president four billion dollars was spent yesterday just on thanksgiving now that's given some thanks you think about the pilgrims and I would say I would recommend any of rush's books including the the kids books they're great rush revere we think about the pilgrims and how proud they would be to know that this incredible place that all started back then generated four billion dollars just in thanksgiving revenue and what is what is a better way to give thanks then to wait in line at a mall and throw some cash around which reminds me an a and this is this I'm looking at you guys in the in the control booth please keep my Christmas gift under five hundred dollars this year seriously I mean if you want to split it whatever don't go crazy and that goes for you to boast nearly the total it reached two billion dollars by five o'clock that's a twenty percent increase compared to last year so this is more bad news for Democrats things just keep going better they get better they're improving the right direction wrong direction the people more people now think we're going in the right direction this is bad news in fact several websites crashed but they got back up there is a the cosco site app of it got back up thank god my wife was not on it at the time because she would have melted down she's big cosco gal and we're looking to spend about seven hundred and thirty one billion dollars in November so that's the projection and once again I'm in New York for Black Friday or as mayor de Blasio calls it Moscow.
They Were Sexually Abused Long Ago as Children. Now They Can Sue
"The me too movement and revelations around child sexual abuse have prompted lawmakers across the U. S. to extend the window to sue for old sexual assaults Pennsylvania's legislature just passed a bill that would move forward a constitutional amendment that allows the suits but that process can take years from member station W. H. Y. Y. Laura benchtop reports on a group of victims who are not waiting for that to happen to sue the Catholic Church last year while he was being treated for kidney failure fifty seven year old John patch Kaski glanced at the television in his hospital room that was when I noticed on CNN that it said that like a thousand kids were molested raped sodomized in the state of Pennsylvania that news item was about a sweeping grand jury report mapping out sexual abuse by priests over the course of seventy years Askey who grew up outside Scranton Pennsylvania has his own story when he was around eleven years old patch Kaski says a priest named father Michael Pollak Kerr invited him on a fishing trip and then pinned him down and sexually assaulted him I remember laying there and here is just throwing down my eyes and not being able to move Paula Kerr is on the diesis of Scranton's list of credibly accused clergy the priest died in nineteen ninety nine decades later lying in his hospital bed patch Kaski resolved to do something he started talking about what happened to him and learned that other men he grew up with had similar accounts patch Kaski says what made you want to sue is finding out that the church had started offering lump sum payments to victims the anger inside of me that the church would actually have the gall to bring up a victims fund and and tell you what your work and tell you what it was like to live for forty some years with all this but there was a problem I lost a number of cases in court not on the merits of whether my client was abused but before I could proceed with the case based on the statute of limitations that's attorney Richard Serban he's been suing the Catholic Church for thirty two years under Pennsylvania law if you're sexually abused as a child you have to bring a lawsuit by the time you turn thirty Sir Ben decided to try something different he began suing not for the abuse itself but for church leaders efforts to cover it up that the diocese knew about it and had a duty to speak up and instead remained silent he based those claims on information in reports from grand juries that investigated the Catholic Church in Pennsylvania earlier this year a state appeals court said his first case can go to trial and at least a dozen other cases have now followed not however stick represents the dices of Harrisburg against several of those claims and says they're just too old to defend against in the case of at least Harrisburg one of claims see is you know forty fifty maybe sixty years old the priests and bishops involved are often debt and evidence is hard to come by earlier this year for men with claims against father Michael Paul care filed a lawsuit against the diocese of Scranton the current bishop and a former bishop John patch Kaski was among them just because a look Kerr is deceased it doesn't change any fact from the bishops or anybody else that was involved in all this that they should pay for what they did after patch Kaski filed the lawsuit the diocese of Scranton released a statement saying current leadership was ordained long
"Brian Good Morning Komo how you doing excellent and you know the we talk a lot we talk a lot about the regional programs and Maryland millions last week and they got the Ohio people this week and you know go back to the end of the Press Kyle season we had the two year old and Pennsylvania obviously people are taking advantage of the opportunity to to race in Pennsylvania and drop their foles absolutely and as you know the great news it came out this week is that Pennsylvania's up twelve point five percent in mayors red when I look at the number because I did a a you know report myself of say how come we're only twelve point five percent well there was a is a mix up with the uptown Charlie Brown I looked at him he had one mayor Brady actually had seventy three Mares Brit and they straightened that out there apparent elitist mix up the jockey club so that was straightened out yesterday so be add his seventy two on there we're actually twenty four percent over over last year and actually I think we're we're probably going to be up a little bit more net whenever he says everything said and done but you're right I mean Optical are are are GonNa go where the program is the is is the best and I think one of the most important the things is the collaboration we have with the horsemen groups at at the retraction Pennsylvania you know they they're very good about helping Pennsylvania program and You know we paid out over thirty million dollars eight years in a row looks like we're going to be had that number again this year so a lot of good things happening NPA the advantage for those that you know the track this kind of information and it's ebbs and flows I mean there's there's programs that a that have had trouble all you have to do is look at New Jersey and whenever there's uncertainty mayor owners breeders whether they're breeding to race or breeding commercially. They're going to go where they can plan ahead and nobody wants uncertainty and ah that that really has been the continuity and there were some there were some concerns about the the money that that comes toward the the breeding and racing in Pennsylvania that bloomer those those fears were allayed though and and you know the state stands Harrisburg understands the benefits of supporting the program given what it does for the farm community and all the trickle down economies correct we three years ago we put the Racehorse Development on in a trust Why don't sweat say we legislate Peter's put it in a trust and so people are now confident that that money is going to be the air because you know like you said you know commitment is in for a year your commitment coming in it's probably five or six years and the getting some you know some more running in you know you're seeing that with the with the new standards that are coming into Pennsylvania I mean with the opportunity the Warriors Reward Uptown Charlie Brown's doing Doing fantastic uncle Lino peace and just this we just Dr Solomon at Pin Oak Lane form Just ince contract for Normandy in Beijing becoming in another tap it so you know things when when people are confident that you know programs on the right track you know you'll see you'll see that by you know the uptick in the Palm Mares bread and and home owners coming in the mid Atlantic we talk we talk on a regular basis this summer and into the early fall with with Alan Norman and the match series and we had a Lotta conversations about Virginia and the the reboot of of racing there and there's you know there's really kind of an inter- intertwined network really for for people that that race in the mid Atlantic I mean with all the the various program awards that breeders and again whether you breathe a racer or you breathe to sell it folded in Delaware certification and Virginia certification and then if you dropped your foal in Pennsylvania Oh my God it oh you I've I've said this a few times can you can literally win a purse and all the awards could be seventy five percent over and above what you want is a purse right I mean you can you can look at that horse was bred by peasy Patterson and Vicki so we call Paul who WanNa Delaware certified the stake a young won a couple of stakes in Pennsylvania a bread I mean you just you know you can't ask for anything better what run down the awards we haven't talked about this in a long time what are the percentages and are they structured well Both breeders and owners benefit from the plan are free your award for maiden made races is fifty percents are a breeder that's horses twenty five percents so we're taking care of them to any other races the Breeder Award Forty Percent Twenty Percent for others owner bonuses up to forty percents at parks and twenty percent of pen and thirty percent at Chris Kyle we have hundreds of restricted races every year we just put in a waiver of Maine claiming So any maiden want us I'm sorry not any meaning Clinton but at at Penn gene maiden claiming race it's twenty five or higher you can waive the claim if you have a PA at parks it's the maiden claiming twenty where you can waive the wave the claim when we wanted to we wanted to give our breeders and opportune unity to get back some of that money that they put out and they're harder time and effort before the horses eligible declined because as you know in Pennsylvania decent Pennsylvania bread boom that's suckers gone and we we also have have discussed you mentioned call Paul who's competed at the highest level but the the string of Pennsylvania bread great at stake with there's and Breeders Cup runners winters I it the whole program has has just gotten better and better given the quality of bears that the state has attracted and these are successes that kind of feed on on themselves and you mentioned Pinot there's there's any number of people that that understand these dynamics and are going to take advantage and that's why the mayors are showing up and it's a boon to a farm operators in the breeding operators absolutely I mean we're we're breathing we're seeing an increase in the number of foles and also an increase in the quality.

Remembering journalist Cokie Roberts
"And we're back back and not a surprise to anyone but the NPR family isn't the only family that is really sad today about the loss of cokie Roberts Michelle Shell and Barack Obama the former president put out a statement this comes from President Obama former President Obama Michelle and I are sad to hear about the passing cokie Roberts. She was a trail-blazing figure a role model to young women at a time when the profession was still dominated by men a constant over forty years of shifting media landscape landscape and changing world informing voters about the issues of our time and mentoring young journalists every step of the way she will be missed and we send our condolences to her family only I want to pick up on the mentoring part because we heard we heard Mahras story there. I have a note here from Susan stamper. Another of the founding mothers you just mentioned and it says she volunteered to go cover three mile island. Now people will remember of course that was the nuclear near disaster the near nuclear clear meltdown in Harrisburg Pennsylvania and I believe Nineteen seventy-nine people didn't know how dangerous it was or how dangerous is going to be Susan Rice. She volunteered to go cover. Three Mile Island said send me not one of the young ones. I've had all the children I'm GonNa have and she burned the suit. She'd worn there but you got back breath. I think of that now because she was thinking about people other than yourself. That doesn't surprise me one bit I would say that's exactly the cokie Roberts that I knew but like all stories involving legends and larger than life figures as cokie Roberts is fast becoming stories stories like that often have a different version and here's Kochi's the real reason was that I could drive. NPR At the time was driving impaired shop. several of our correspondents have been raised in Manhattan and never learned to drive a car others like Linda Wertheimer didn't drive because she had had a bad accident student when she was young and none of us wanted Nina Totenberg to drive because her eyesight is so bad so I could drive the two plus hours to Harrisburg so I was the the designated driver reporter on the scene that is beautiful. Just she was a great human being she was a great human being yes. I can say that from personal experience so what's your personal experienced him no she was just just incredibly encouraging giving nudges when nudges were needed and I mean going back to when I was a teenager and sent letters to all these NPR NPR personalities asking them how to do what they did. When I grow up she responded she called left me a message said whatever you do don't mean you're communications all right and did you follow that advice. Absolutely I majored in philosophy. There's no way I'd major in communications. cokie. Roberts told me not to all right nothing nothing against those who may be listening to majored in communications absolutely but if young people ask me for advice. What do I tell them. I just repeat cokie said be more like cokie. Be More like cokie. That's great so cokie. Roberts was this fixture on air for many many years and because she was a fixture on morning edition she frequently did her segment live from home so you know we have magical little boxes and devices that make it possible for us to be on the radio without actually doing our hair sometimes and when when you think of coke there is one moment that a lot of people remember it involves both cokie and someone named abner toast across the country. Liberal Democrats don't mm care for it either because we haven't heard much from them that was a Basset Hound and I think that was given Phillips and Edwards Condition and Abner the Basset Hound and then later because she definitely had a sense of humor she did an interview on NPR about abner the dog's appearance on morning edition he is about four years old brown and white very long ears and very sad eyes and he has been very very eager to make his radio debut. This has been a difficult task to keep him away from the microphone. This dog wants to be a radio dog and Wednesday morning. My husband happened to be up. Let him into the room next to the room. Where we were broadcasting bob. He was outside of a door behind closed doors ars while he was barking. He wasn't right at the microphone. If he had been I would have introduced him. Good lungs in that house all the way around so uh he really wanted to be on the air wasn't a case of his needing to go outside had been outside. I had been up for an hour. Just fed the beast. The dog eats. It's anything he can get. This dog can open the icebox door helps himself and the thing that really irritates me is then he doesn't close it will abner has a lot of fans conceivably good as on program here. He doesn't seem to talk on cute and I'm not sure how good he is talking to time but but he is a a a dog well worth getting to know one more appearance on morning edition and he has to join the Union. I think that's absolutely right but then of course he'll have a a good retirement plan. Thank you very much. NPR's cokie Roberts that was glorious and a great way to end on something a little bit happy happy. Thank you Steve and Mara for taking time today glad to do it and that is a wrap for today. We will be back as soon as there's the news you need to know about. I'm Tamra Keith and thank you for listening to NPR politics podcast
Amateur Astronomers Gather For 'Star Parties'
"For many of us, especially those who live in the eastern half of the United States. Light pollution has taken away much of the night sky. But there are still a few spots far from the city lights and each year, amateur, astronomers gathered there with their telescopes for what they affectionately, call star parties NPR's, Scott Neuman visited one of those parties in northern Pennsylvania, should be dead center. You see it, it's just after midnight. Fred hunter, and Bob kava are looking for 'em. Eleven and open star cluster in the constellation scudo. They're using a method called star hopping. No fancy electronics just estimating angles and distances from known bright stars to find what they're looking for right there. There is concede already there's a Cassiopeia your from the cities and suburbs light pollution has all but washed out, these faint deep sky, objects and amateur. Astronomers fiercely defend the darkness here, white lights are strictly forbidden red headlamps are everywhere. Hunter is a retired school custodian from West Virginia who builds his own scopes. I come to see the different scopes to get ideas to talk to people and then the dark skies is just desert. This is the desert, this is sprinkles on your ice cream here, it is kava is a first timer from Princeton, New Jersey, I'm a chemistry professor, Ian Hunter met by chance at this year's star party after they just happened to set up their telescopes next to each other. The two ended up observing together until the small hours. This is my hobby of doing it for thirty years, or something like that. And I thought I was an extreme amateur strong. I came here, and then I saw all incredible stuff that some of these people show. With I thought I'm not crazy yet chip template is president of the astronaut society of Harrisburg that puts on the annual star party. Yeah. Where we may get one hundred good nights of observing in a year say Arezzo has three hundred good nights. So you have that to deal with, but a good night here is good night as you're gonna find one member of the Harrisburg club. Brock San Cayman is among the most serious amateur astronomers you're likely to find with her fourteen inch reflector she enjoys looking for galaxies and nebulae that most others considered just too difficult. I've always been a science geek, ever since I was a little kid came in also belongs to a citizen science organization called iota, the international tation timing association, they pool observations of the dimming of light that occurs, when an asteroid passes in front of a distant star by measuring that dip in the light, which we do with video, recorders and cameras. You measure that dip and you can actually tell the size of the asteroid recently, she. He and fellow amateurs made similar observations of Pluto, that will help scientists learn more about that planets wispy atmosphere, but most of all at least on this outing to cherry springs came in his just content to be inspired by these rare skies. And you look at 'em fifty one new sue the spirals of the arms of the galaxy. And you'd think wow, you know, our Milky Way galaxies is like that. You know, we're just this little little
40 years later: Three Mile Island nuclear plant to close
"Danger at Three Mile Island. It happens. This coming Thursday, the fortieth anniversary of the worst nuclear power plant accident in American history or faced with the remote, but very real possibility of a nuclear meltdown a series of mishaps had created an emergency at one of the two reactors at the Three Mile Island plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. A partial meltdown as it turned out causing the release of small amounts of radiation into the atmosphere. Officials later declared the radiation leak inconsequential. But the damage to public confidence in nuclear power had been done. The damaged reactor was shut down for good and tighter regulations were imposed on the entire industry. The construction of new plants stalled across the country now four decades later a punctuation Mark Three Mile Island. Current owner says it will be shutting down the plants only other reactor by the end of the year.
