"Leg power. I can afford leg power. But the competition, we're maxing out tournaments. We have a 200 angler max on our tournaments. And we've been maxing out a lot of them this year. You know, last year in places where we had a 120 anglers show up. We had 200 anglers and a waiting list. So the sport you're right, it is. It is growing big time, the term side of it is growing. Big time because we all have this push in this need and this desire for competition. Not everybody, but you start getting out there and you see how big voter tournaments are and people want to do they want to keep what the competition and kayaks offer you the best bet to go and do that. So we are seeing growth there, but we're also seeing an influx of people just really wanting to get out on the water. Kayak sales have been through the roof. They haven't been able to keep a lot of them in stock and plus with the shortage of manufacturing during COVID with you can't just can't get parts for things. You know, there has been a shortage of kayaks. And so when people can get them, they're using them. And I see a lot more of them out there on the water every day. Every time I'm out there. So it's really encouraging to me to see people go out there and do that. And that's really near to my heart, building kayak tournaments because I love competition. That's the warrior mentality. I call it of me. I want to go into battle somehow some way. And we created the hobie tournaments because it was a tournament that we wanted to fish. And then my friend AJ mcwhorter can run in those the last four years and then this year I've stepped back in to help tournament direct some of those, you know, that's where I'm at right now. Susquehanna river and Pennsylvania right outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and we have a sold out tournament coming up at the end of the month. So we'll have 200 anglers out floating down the Susquehanna river.

"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..

"When you look at this executive branch of Pennsylvania, I don't have glowing things to say about it. I mean, how do you look at the Wolf Administration? Federman Shapiro and the like. And I mean eyes. Is this about turnout going forward? How are these people rewarded that. How can the Republicans not make hay here? I don't know, because I mean, if you got you got people sitting around and cities like Philadelphia and some of the other places where Vaccines not getting out to them. The schools are closed, even though they're open in other places, and private schools are open. You know, there's there's just failure up and down, and I think Wolf ran initially, as you know, the Businessman who's going to make government run efficiently. You know, like a lot of business. Better run for governor do Has been the case. I mean, he hired a lot of political hacks like Levin and book far who have just not been up to the task. You know, Whatever else you think of their politics. They weren't good at their jobs. That's the one thing Wolf was supposed to be. Better at than the usual machine politician. Are there any in your mind? Front runner Republicans legitimate, challenging front runner gubernatorial possibilities. I mean, like people that you think we have a problem because here's what I think Republicans. Typically I see that run statewide. They seem to be kind of Names. No one knows that maybe have a lot of money or or business acumen. They come from the private sector and never really gained any traction aren't particularly exciting. The business community might throw a couple of bucks of them, but they certainly don't bring anybody out, and there's always some sort of establishment. Machine Democrat that seizes the day is that I would love to break that mold. Are we going to this time? Well, we did a little better, and it didn't get talked about much in 2020. But we won the other there General and the state treasurer races for the first time and Think, 10 years and 16 years respectively. So that there would you know, before that everything statewide was Was held by a Democrat, except for the one U S Senate seat, So I think there's you know, there is the beginnings of ah of a rebuilding, but, yeah, I think we've got to make sure it's somebody who can. Not just win in the deepest of Republican areas. He's got to be able to talk to moderates and tell him Why he's better than the mess that is in Harrisburg. Right now, at least That is going for whoever it is he or she will be able to say. Democrats are screwing up pretty badly. I can do better.

You see Frida, middle class guy with the private colleges and you know he was mayor of that downtrodden town out West, but he didn't From there. He's for it from Suburbs reading, I believe Yes. So what are we to make of him? I mean, he had real threat because he looks. I don't know anything about him other than he looks every time I see him on MSNBC's wearing a hoody against a brick wall.

"Of it happening. I'm sure it has historical president. But We talked about it actually, yesterday here on the show. The Senate. In Harrisburg did not seat Someone that the Secretary of state anyway in Pennsylvania. Certified as the winner of a Senate election. Ultimately, the Senate did not recognize this individual as the winner of that Senate seat. There was a legal question as to whether or not this incumbent was the winner. In fact, the Republican majority recognized based on their interpretation of the law. And the election rules the Republican challenger as the winner. I think I don't want to miss speak better to bring in our next guest, Jake Corman, who is the new Pennsylvania senator, Senate President Pro TEM. Senator Corman. Thanks for your time this morning. Hi. Good morning. How are you? I'm well, thanks. This was a really unusual event. But I have to say I really commend you and your fellow senators for calmly asserting yourselves. You clearly stood on principle and on Merit and not standing here. I mean, you you guys looked at the law and you, You felt it was incorrect to seat the incumbent Democrat there in the 45th district. Here. The decision was made not to see anybody, even though the secretary of state certified, uh, Democrat Jim Brewster is the winner. There was just open federal lawsuit, but actually, we hope to hear this morning on But the case was it made confusing, and the funny part is there's really no disputed facts. It's not about voter fraud or whatever. It's about votes at Allegheny County. Decided to count that 60. Some kinds of Pennsylvania did not count which were absentee ballots that did not have they gone. The law is very clear. That if you vote by s until you needed to sign and date The about and if you didn't it was disqualified And actually, the secretary of state put out guidance prior to the election by the dude bows would not count, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled. Back, spare being the the top Democrat on the country in spring quarter. This opinion said any correction of disqualified ballots is a matter for the Legislature, not the cords. On both of those rolled in the fire priority like him that those ballots will not count. After the election. They both rolled. They switched the position and rose do about should count and then therefore, he gave Senator Brewster, the Democrat from a deficit to elite. After the ballots were counted by Allegany County. Now the Senate district encompasses two counties West more than and Allegheny Westmoreland like 60 some other counties because they do not counting house because they're not allowed to be counted. S So, um, You know, there's a case before the federal Court of Equal Protection looks like Bush V. Gore, but she can't have different standards in different counties throughout the state. On Soto that was worked out in a couple other things. We decided not to see anybody on then once the courts world, um ultimately, the Senate is empowered by the Constitution on Article two section, dying to be the final arbiter of elections and qualifications for its own members. And then Walter me make a decision. Senator Coleman on kind of another matter kind of kind of a broader general matter on die Don't you know I don't I don't mean to make you speak for the entire legislative body. And I really appreciate you being here. And so I want to be respectful and not sound like I'm piling on him beating beating you up. I'm really careful, Toby. Be fair and not unfair. But it's obvious on you've certainly heard it. I'm sure from your constituents and all across the country. We've been in the white hot glare of a spotlight The through this election cycle for what happened. I know. Ultimately, the Legislature Ended up petitioning Congress to not certify the electors. Given the disputes that went on with the vote count here, Do you think as you kind of back away from it and kind of take the 30,000 ft view of the way theologian went in Pennsylvania. Well rather than I even asked that Let me just ask. What is your read of the way the election win in Pennsylvania. That's the simpler question. The problem we had was the executive branch and the judicial branch. Of our government in Pennsylvania, sort of teamed up against legislative branch time manner in place of election just to turn by the Legislature obviously signed by the governor. And we passed a bill in October of 2019 to make some changes our election code to open up opportunities for people to vote me, man. May I jump in and they're up to that point and like just to start there Do you in hindsight, and I know we have the luxury of hindsight. That was an innocuous thing at the time. That was pre coverted knowing all we know now, do you regret that? And do you think that the Republicans kind of inn in Mass collectively now wish that she'd never even done that given all we know now? Well, now we know how the executive Branch Wolf Administration exported that piece of legislation. I would have to say yet the legislation itself was good legislation. Unfortunately, the secretary of state what she did under the guise of governor Tom Wolfe. Knock down all the security barriers that we had and voting by absentee knocked down this. You know, these are all in long before it and they knocked down signature verification. Yeah, actually about prior to this had to be had have signature verification, she said then that was no longer necessary..

Not aiding physically harm the Democrat but they basically shut him down. Shut their microphones like the mean girls of Harrisburg. Settle. Why? Why?

Frau Book Bar did certify the winner of the 35th Senate district guy He called Sherman from a book far said that he's the winner, but the Republican Senate said it would know. They're still illegal challenge. And until the legal challenges settled, we're not gonna I'm gonna talk about it. So they threw federal mint out. Lieutenant Governor GarageBand wannabe soul Patch Carhartt looks like the guy you'd call the change a tire from Triple A Head Lieutenant Governor Federman. They threw him out of the chamber and said, We're not recognizing this guy. You're not going to see them No get out. But Republicans still try to be professional, steely. He Now this actually goes to prove another point. What you're gonna hear Is the Republicans doing this by? You know Robert's rules of reading the procedure Million. We have the script there. They're completely procedurally within their right to do with the doing. They've well researched this. What's exciting to me about this folks is they researched it. They came to play. This is what six and I know. Forgive me. There may be some of you. Thinking's to go, which is stop getting so excited about them actually doing their jobs. I e would love to not be this excited, but they've never done their jobs before. So you've got to, You know, it's like when your kid hits his first ball off a tee. Yeah, you've got to encourage them. So they do it again, You know? You've got this. It's like you're helping your toddler walk. They've got to. They've got to walk before they run. So you've got to encourage and I'm serious. Actually, these people need encouragement. They need our backing because they're catching hell. I'm telling you, National news is covering them like Pennsylvania. All marked hell is going on and there's Oh my God, it's look, it's Lord of the flies in Harrisburg. Why they've lost their minds and news media across the commonwealth. You certainly here in Pennsylvania and in Philadelphia, told Republicans Rager stay through Fetterman right out of there as though federal minister they make Federman out to be Ronald Reagan. Federman is this great statesman? My God, That man is a pothead. The guy's got a damn pot flag hanging. He's a He's A. He's straight out of 1990 like he's got a balloon. You feel like I got bond and a Belushi poster on his office wall. He's a nobody. He's a washed up nothing. I don't even know what he is. He's a disgrace of a human being. He doesn't belong in elected office. We'll have to treat him with that. Lieutenant governor. Okay? They removed the lieutenant governor. He did. My 15 year old son is more credible is lieutenant governor than that reparable eight. They threw him out of there. Like Yeah, I should be thrown out just because of who he is. But anyway So they're going to make these Republicans out to be just lunatics. Outrageous What they did know they were within their right. You see, this is the point. This is what we've been saying all along. This is what the late great justice, Scalia said, and I will never ever Forget this. Was blessed and privileged. And I say that not to brag in any way. I mean it. I found it to be now. As I look back on this. It was a real blessing and a privilege in my life. That just before he died several months before he died. I was fortunate enough to attend a private dinner with him at the Union League. And the only reason I bring that up is again not to say it in some sort of ostentatious or braggadocious way It was because of what I learned at this dinner. He said something so significant and important to me, and I had never really internalized it before. And it may not even sound that profound to you. But it was profound to me because I'd never considered it. I have been so custom in my life to a Congress that's done nothing. I've just been so accustomed to limp wristed loser Republicans. I've just been so used to it. And it was clear that gave me this kind of epiphany. This wake up where, he said. You know, it's not supposed to be this way. Nine UN elected people in black robes are not supposed to be the power of center in this country. We don't want it. We don't deserve it. We haven't earned it. It's not supposed to be this way. It used to be. It should be. It was designed to be that the £800 gorilla of power. Is the Legislature. Not the executive. That's a judicial, the legislative body. They're the ones that cut the checks. They're the ones that make the laws. They're the power center. Anymore. You wouldn't know that anymore. Would you? Not at the state level, not at the federal level, they're virtually worthless. And it was really and I know that's not that may be profound to you, but to me it was like it was such an Ah ha! Of course. Of course he's right. So what is this? What am I saying? What I'm saying is you have a legislature in Harrisburg, and I said to you about this election of 2020 and going forward, the fight has got to be in our state's capitals. It's got to be about our legislature. It's got to be about about our Republican legislatures reasserting themselves and saying no, damn it, we control boundary drawing. We run elections, Not the effing Supreme Court, not the governor, not the secretary of state. We run elections and you don't tell us how elections go. We tell you how they go. We've been elected directly by the citizens of Pennsylvania. We do this. You don't do it. We do it there. The £800 gorilla. They have the power. They haven't asserted it. And so yesterday when they do it. It was like orgasmic. I don't smoke, and I wanted to light a cigarette as I listen to this now what?

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.
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

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
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.
