Illinois' Top Doc Updates The State's Fight Against Covid-19

"I'm Justin Kauffman and this is reset. Doctrine Ghazi Zeke is director of the Illinois Department of Public Health and since the COVID nineteen pandemic began, she shaved, and led the state's Public Health Response, Illinois just settling into phase, four of the state's reopening plan, but it comes at a time when we've seen major spikes of Kobe pop states across the country that many people worried about a second wave in our own region. Talk about that and more we've got doctors Zeke online. Dr Welcome to reset good afternoon or good morning. Hello, we're right in the middle. There is a sweet spot. This is. It's amazing. Because for months it seemed like every single day. The governor relieving the covid nineteen briefings, so I gotTa Ask I. Are you relieved to not having to be doing those every single day? No I take the opportunity and I embrace it as a chance to really connect with the people of Illinois, and if it helps them, get information they need. I I was more than willing to serve. There's other work to be done, and so that gives me some time to keep keep looking at the data looking at what's going on around the country so that we can continue informing our people so i. don't mind the slower cadence of. Press conferences but I'm willing to do whatever it takes to help. Support Illinois well. Let's replace the Star- to when we talk about the latest news on Covid nineteen nationally, we're seeing major spikes several other states states that have already gone through their face for reopenings. Is that a cause of concern for you? It really really is you know we have been saying from the beginning and I'm so proud to have a governor that all about the data, so while we have Gita in our state, that says everything has been moving in the right direction we do see what is happening in other states, and knowing that our state doesn't have you know borders around it and that we connect Likley he six other states, and we know that you know Illinois is a major. Targets destination for for tourism and summer travel. You really have to be paying attention to what's happening outside of our state and try to see if we can glean some information and maybe make some important pivots so that we don't go the same way of some of these other states I can imagine that in the governor's office, and behind closed doors, or some pretty intense meetings about wind face for my kickoff. Obviously those voices that were in those meetings are. Are Lobbyist for for restaurants and for for other industries that want to get back to reopening for you to be the Illinois Director of Public Health. How important is it to make sure that measured that that this wasn't just sort of a knee-jerk economic reaction, and that it was measured to keep the covid nineteen cases down and keep us from second way. Definitely, all of the the discussions you know, bring all the voices to bear. There are a lot of considerations. About what our state has to do, and how we keep it safe, and how we protect livelihoods as well as lives, so there's so many important competing priorities everyone wants to keep people safe, and it's just We don't really want it to be this, either or and so. That's why I'm trying to force this lines of. Balance All of these important priorities. You know the face for reopening seemed to be successful this weekend, but there there seems to be still this. Culture around what? Being safe socially distance and protecting yourself and others looks like, and we see this a conversation happening politically culturally around the country when it comes to wearing masks and social distancing, and and keeping in place, the restrictions that we just went through for the last three to four months. How important is that message? How important is it for you to be a part of that conversation? I'm happy to lend my voice to that conversation because it's critical that we understand the fact that follow facts. The opening of our economy of our states, it can't be done without the what we call the non pharmaceutical intervention, these allegations strategies such as basking and washing your hands and keeping your distance. They! Are Part of the plan. If we have the opening without those strategy, I already know which way we're heading, and it's not what anybody wants, and so if we don't. Do both together is not going to vote well for us. Obviously, it's easier to control the spread of the virus when everyone is indoors and we know that there's not really the appetite for that. We're trying to forge a different task forward, but that involve you know slowly opening, and then keeping all these strategies in place and. Data, to make sure that we haven't quickly, but you can't have the opening without the masking of distancing it. Just the formula doesn't compute Illinois Department, of Public Health Director Dr in Ghazi. Zika is with me here tonight. Reset with. Of course face for reopening, and and also the numbers, and I wanna I really WanNa. Get this. What set of numbers keeps you up at night? Is it the numbers of that we see? We say how many cases were were reported today, or how many deaths or the positivity rates and the testing re. All these rates are kind of what's the one thing you focus on that? You look at to be the indicator for where we're heading. Know the truth is that all of them are really put together in context, of course what's? Baddeck is. Are the number of deaths, the number of people who've actually long their live. Sobering but all that doesn't happen in a vacuum. Before you have you die, you had someone who was likely in the hospitals, so the numbers of people in the hospital are significant. We at one point five thousand five thousand something people in the hospital at one time across across Illinois today it's about fifteen hundred you know, but before if somebody ends up in the hospital, have they were in an emergency department? So I'm looking at the number of emergency department. For covert like before they ended up in the emergency room. They obviously affected so knowing the number of cases that developed. Positives, we have every day. That's significant and then if we don't have actual testing to identify this, we're sometimes. Bubble pretending that it's not there and not. I gotTA assigned cases at missing. All these things will happen because whether you have a positive test or not. If you get sick enough, you'll end up in the emergency room and hospital, and then potentially a really. You know sad outcome, so all of these numbers matter you know we're looking at where the outbreaks are occurring when people when our contact tracers put their information into the system and tell us where multiple cases occurred, that identifies and signals places that we have to. To keep an eye on, and maybe think about pulling back on, so there's so many pieces of data that I'm tracking every single day and putting it altogether I get the right picture of where we're heading where we don't WanNa hit when you see a what amounts to a second wave where the flattening the curve data that we've seen over the weekend, you can start to see that the the curves spiking almost looks like peaks and valleys posed to one some of the data that you see from different countries. Is in a navigable in your estimation that there will be a second wave or an uptick of cases in the state of Illinois or is that something that you continue to fight to an optimistic that you can fend off. I don't think anyone can argue that. The sheltering in place was effective and I. Don't think it's reasonable to think that with you know. Places Open at fifty percent capacity, even those that are twenty five percent capacity and people heading back to work even with social, distancing masking that will not be as effective as as being at home and and minimizing interaction, so we expect that there will be some increased but we don't want it to just starts growing exponential phase like what we saw several months ago, so we're accepting increases inevitable but it's the amount of increase that we just don't want it to get to an untenable. Untenable situation where we're actually even threatening healthcare capacity, and just having this exponential cases and I understand it'd be the governor's choice if if we have to go from face for back to face three but hospital, we talk about hospital capacity. Is that really an indicator to how far and how fast we moved to reopen because that's really been the the the staff that we kind of look at to see where we're at when it comes to fighting this or being prepared for it, so is that something that that we should all pay attention to is? Is Hospital capacity as we move forward trying to get back to some sort of normalcy? It is an important metric We know that there is a supportive care that can be given within the hospital we saw. An extreme example in Italy where some of the deaths were not necessarily because they couldn't get cared for, but well it was that they couldn't get care for. They couldn't even get a hospital bed to get any of supportive care, and so we don't want it to be where people are dying in in the hallways. You know in the streets, because there's not even the ability to put somebody in a hospital, and give them oxygen, and or monitor them, and and give them support so hospital capacity does matter. You, you know there are. Good therapeutic cures therapeutic modalities. That can help calm the illness. Vaccine this'll be a different conversation. So so many pieces are necessary, just because something is open doesn't mean we have to go and partake of it i. think things are open, but people don't have the right to to stay home. If there's something that's non essential. Maybe they will opt for a smaller gathering and a gathering of fifty again. We know that outdoors is much safer than indoors so if you haven't. The safer option I mean. There's still choice and. In, addition to wearing addition to maintain you know six feet of distance. There's also the ability to turn down a patient if we think it's been a put people in an unsafe situation, right now feels to me like the Department of Public Health and you guys have done a tremendous job. A lot of his reactionary to a pandemic. That's come into US and being in having to figure out what you can do with the limited resources that the state provides, and and the federal government provides as you move forward in this job. Do you have to start making a transition to to be proactive about how you're going to design? The Illinois Department of Public Health. With covid nineteen as part of it, meaning that it's going to be with us forever, even when there's a vaccine is going to be around, so do you have to start thinking about almost a pivot from reaction to proactive? Correct We have learned so much from this pandemic, if exposed to so many of the agencies you know shortcomings if you will or areas of opportunity poor positively. so we definitely know that we don't on at the end up position where we're just reacting to things you know. We know that we're putting in some. Systems to make sure that we can identify things before they're fully characterized so that there can be martyrs that we're tracing that we will see an uptick in something. You know abnormal before it's a widespread. You know epidemic outbreak. We're trying to get the right enough personnel and data informatics, no collection system all. Necessary to help, prevent future similar occurrences, so that is very cheap that we try to think about what we need to do to prevent these things as opposed to to reacting involved in staff. Structure. Informatics system and all of a yard work on now there's going to be so many stories that will come out as time goes on, but even Christmas today. wbz about how patients were transferred or not transferred from hospital to hospital during covert. Trying to find beds seem to be something that has the Illinois Department of Public Health moves forward. You guys will have a better understanding of how that worked last time and how you can fix it for the next time. Rugged, early the. Leadership of the hospitals across the state of coordinated by the Illinois housing. Association and so those conversations have been had. We have talked about how we need to be able to seamlessly to get people to the settings that they need for the appropriate level of care so very important point. We have identified that you know as part of this quote I way. That's already occurs. You know we're already looking at our. You know after Action Report and plan and trying to identify things that went really well and areas that could be descend up so that we can do a much better job if we see more and that we're ready to strengthen up some of the areas out soft Hopkins.

First U.S. Case Person-To-Person Transmission Of Coronavirus Announced

"The World Health Organization has declared the new corona virus from China a public health emergency that underlines the increasingly global nature of this epidemic but dynamic and here in the US federal health officials have identified a sixth case. It's a Chicago man whose wife fell ill. After she traveled to Wuhan China. This is the first case to arise within the US but NPR science correspondent Richard Harris reports said health officials say it is not cause for alarm health officials in Chicago who have been on high alert since a woman who returned from a trip to Wuhan China on January thirteenth fell ill with the novel corona virus. That vigilance has paid off. Oss Doctor and goes eight is director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. This second patient did not travel to China indicating the first in person to person transmission of novel Corona Virus in the United States. The man in his sixties has been hospitalized and is in stable condition according to Dr Jennifer for Laden the Illinois state epidemiologist. His wife is largely bounce back from her disease. Laden says but remains an isolation well. She completes her recovery. We believe that the husband was exposed to his spouse while she was symptomatic. That's a key point because scientists are trying to figure out if the disease can be spread before people are coughing in or showing other symptoms Dr Zeki underscored that this case is not a surprise. This person to person read was between two very close context a wife and husband. The virus is not spreading widely across the community. They spoke at a telephone. News conference organized organized by the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also on the call was the CDC's doctrine NC. I understand this may cause people to be worried about the virus and how it could affect them. This lung infection is a serious disease. She said but with just six cases in the United States it does not pose a threat to the general public moving forward. We can expect to see more cases and more cases mean the potential for more person to person spread so the CDC is is following a tried and true approach to preventing these sporadic cases from fuelling and epidemic disease detectives or keeping. Watch on those who've come in close contact with known cases including their healthcare workers. They are quickly isolating people who get sick. And they're urging people who recently traveled to China to be alert for symptoms including cough and fever. Her but Dr Messenger says there's no need now. For extreme measures such as wearing face masks in public or canceling events. We want to lean forward and be aggressive the whole but we want our action evidence base and appropriate to the current circumstances. Those circumstances can change as we learn more about the disease she says to that in the CDC is eager to get more first hand information from a World Health Organization scientific delegation which will soon be traveling to the diseases epicenter China's who they province. It's good news that there will be soon awro mission into China. There's much to learn from their more deep held experience that is by forward vast majority of cases are indeed the case count in China has now surpassed seventy seven hundred including one hundred seventy deaths. The novel Corona Virus is still a much smaller risk to global health than the annual flu which kills hundreds of thousands of people every year but health officials are eager to snuff out the new disease before it can become another chronic killer.

Gov. Prizker Declares State of Emergency Over Coronavirus

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset seven. Republicans are looking to unseat Freshman Congresswoman Loren in Illinois's Fourteenth District Rick Pearson from the Chicago. Tribune will be here soon to talk about that race but First Illinois Governor J B Pritzker issued a formal disaster proclamation yesterday in response to Corona virus or Crovitz nineteen to be clear this declaration will build on already robust response that has been developed over many months and is well underway. The move comes after four. More residents tested positive for the virus bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the State to eleven twenty now with the latest is. Wbz's Mariah woeful hayme ramp high done so as we mentioned at the top four new cases of Corona virus confirmed in Illinois. What can you tell us about these cases? How people contracted the virus. It's four women all in Chicago. Two of them are in their fifties. The other two are in their seventies. They are all in good condition. As of yesterday win. The state made this announcement. Do of them have recovered and the other two are in isolation either at home or in hospital the to have recovered our family members of a previously confirmed case a teacher's aide at a Chicago public high school. They are family members of that confirmed case. Another woman contracted it in California where there have been a lot of cases and then traveled back to Illinois And the other came back from a cruise so governor. Pritzker issued the disaster proclamation yesterday. How helped the state's efforts around Corona virus the proclamation allows the state to pay for medical supplies with its disaster relief funds so it opens up those funds state funds and then it also allows the state to access to get in line for federal resources including and asking medical experts from the CDC IN FEMA to come out if they're needed expedites orders on medical supplies as well like masks and gloves? The Governor says those things aren't needed now this is a preemptive measure but it puts Illinois with thirteen other states who have made similar moves to get in line for these resources that the state will need in the near future but at the same time public health officials say the number of cases in Illinois will grow so in addition to this disaster proclamation. Other other things are doing to prepare for that. Yeah so I think one of the big areas is testing the state Has Three testing facilities and says right. Now that's enough to handle the current number of people it's investigating There are also fifteen surveillance hospitals who can test people for for the flu if they test negative for the flu they can send a sample to one of those three state testing labs. The state says it has enough test kits for now. I've no we've heard about shortages in other states but they are to commercial allowed companies to try to testing kits from the private industry and the they've requested more testing kits from the CDC that. They're waiting on their also. Id Illinois Department of Public. Health is trying to develop their own test as they wait for for more cases to come in. We'll Dr Alison are with the Commissioner of the Chicago. Department of Public Health. Says they're only testing people with symptoms. Let's hear a clip of that testing as symptomatic people would not be helpful and could result in false negatives as in someone could have low levels of the virus but they're not yet coughing they're not yet spreading it they could test negative and later get sick so. I just want to emphasize that as always we are following the science on this Marais with specific symptoms are public. Health officials watching out for while they're watching out for fever cough and shortness of breath There as I said testing people who've tested negative for the flu or who have come in close contact with a confirmed case they define close contact as being within six feet of someone with a confirmed case for ten minutes at least ten minutes. They really are testing the network around. These confirmed cases. I think that's the bulk of the people that they're testing right now. Who's most vulnerable to this virus as we've heard elderly people people over sixty the CDC has said and people with underlying conditions Health officials are advising those folks to avoid large public gatherings or to take Precautionary measure we talk about underlying conditions can. Are we talking about things that would make you immunosuppressed? I yes I believe so. So what does the state doing to protect the elderly from Corona virus? At this point the head of the Illinois Department of Public Health has said that she is in close contact with nursing home administrators. I know that we have seen devastating reports across the country of outbreaks within nursing homes that have affected that vulnerable population There will be pre-screening employees before they come to work at nursing homes to make sure that they don't have something like the flu that could compromise health or the immune system of their patients And also that they haven't traveled to a high risk area in the past fourteen days that's incubation period for corona virus So things like that. They're also advising Nursing homes to limit visitors So people under eighteen who might be carrying like a common cold who who again could put people at andt nursing homes at risk of other sicknesses. Maria Illinois was the first state to test for Kobe. Nineteen and Governor. Pritzker says the state's labs meet its current needs. Let's listen we were among the first states able to test for cove nineteen because we knew to press for that capability and now we have three testing labs in Chicago Springfield and in Carbondale all with the ability to run tests. These labs meet our current need and we anticipate commercial expansion this week to meet demand for widespread testing. How much do we know about how many people tested in Illinois so far the state didn't have exact numbers on that yesterday? They said that six hundred tests have been conducted. But that doesn't necessarily give us an exact idea of how many people have been tested. People require anywhere from one to three tests so the states had anywhere between two hundred six hundred people in that they could get us. Exact numbers later but In the hundreds and who has access to this testing I mean? How much would it cost? Several major health insurance say that they will cover the cost of these of these tests cove in nineteen companies like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois. Which is the state's largest insurer? Aetna and united healthcare are all covering the costs officials. Yesterday stressed that if you think that you can't afford a grown virus test but you think that you might be showing symptoms to contact the Illinois Department of Public Health for information on how to get that covered and then of course the T. The test is being covered by Medicaid and Medicare is announced by the federal government. Why WanNa play a clip of governor pritzker talking about what people should do if they start showing symptoms? Let's listen if you think you might be sick. Please take no risks that could endanger others in the community. Call a healthcare provider. I and plan to have a visit to your doctor. If you're experiencing any symptoms. What else can people do to stay safe? Yeah I'm governor also said. I thought this was good advice. Of course to call elderly people in your life to see How you might be able to help them with running errands so that they don't have to go out and expose themselves to potential infection. Don't hoard supplies like face masks or gloves. Those are needed in hospitals and nursing homes And aren't being advised by public. Health officials also just check in daily on what public health officials are advising. You can get more information online but to make sure that you're educating yourself and then If you are a vulnerable population if you have an underlying condition or if you're over the age of sixty to be following guidelines about Not You know necessarily taking public transit or going to large large-scale. Then we'll as we know big events coming up in Chicago for Saint Patrick's Day parade or any pioneers at this point from the city to cancel that event or any other related events as far as public officials. Say the Saint Patrick's Day parade is still on It's a Saturday yes DR already with Chicago. Department of Public Health said yesterday that they're talking to the CDC every day for guidelines on whether to cancel large-scale events You know we have an election next week. The governor said that he's talking to election authorities to try to relocate any Polling places that are at nursing home so as not to expose residents there but as far as I know in large as large scale events in Chicago They're all still on. We're people access the most up to date information on covert nineteen because there's a lot of information they're not all of it. Reliable Yeah so the Illinois Department of Public Health is Providing live updates on the number of cases number of confirmed cases number of cases. They're investigating as well as tips and things to think about like what you should be mowing over now. decisions that you might have to make in the future about what to do. If your child's school closes if you can't go to work or if you can't take public transit they have tips on that the CDC website And also we are providing live updates on WBZ dot org slash corona virus that's WBZ's Mariah won't full Mariah. Thanks thanks. Jen moved in two thousand Eighteen Democrat. Lauren underwood became the first woman and the first person of color to represent the fourteenth district in Illinois. She also at the age of thirty two became the youngest black woman to ever serve in Congress. The fourteenth was trump district in two thousand sixteen and voters there have historically elected Republicans but since taking office underwood has had one of the most liberal voting records of any. Us House representative. That's at least one reason why. Seven Republicans want their chance to go head to head with Underwood in November and voters will decide who descend to that runoff. Vote in next Tuesday's primary Rick Pearson. Is the Chicago Tribune chief political reporter and he joins me now with more on this race? Rick Welcome to the program. Thank you good to be with you so there are many Republicans want to run against Underwood and the general election. It's a crowded field. Tell us about candidates as you said. This is very much a traditionally Republican district. I mean you're taking in. I call it. Basically suburban ex urban from the far west suburbs then up into mckenry than across coming East and Mchenry County for example I think they elected one Democrat the congress since the civil war he know until until Lauren Underwood so you have this hard hard republican paintings and of course the trumps seven people to run and you have a combination of people who have run before and lost. You have a two state senators So that have some political experience there. you've got a couple of perennial candidates and you've got some new comers. Are the front runners at this point. Well everybody I would say thinks that right. Now Jim over Weiss the dairy magnet and personal investment financial advisor Probably is the front runner. He's had the most money going into this. He's reached into his wallet for a healthy amount of money. But lately you're starting to see some ads from a gentleman named Ted Grotto from Naperville over waste from Sugar Grove to grotto from NAPERVILLE He's a personal Investment Advisor and. He's so he has some means to him as well. His kind of First Time Ron and his claim to fame is that he was a walk on Notre Dame's football team and still believe holds the most points record for having kicked for the team and he's been using that as kind of a entrepot into the race Thursday. We'll get to know him. There's also state senators to resin. Who has the endorsement of the editorial board to the Chicago? Tribune and the daily Herald tells about her Resin has been a note worthy female voice in the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus where it is not always been as diverse She has been a very big on women's issues with a conservative a social conservative mindset. But she certainly has played the political game. has had a basically a perfect record in winning reelection in her state. Senate district one point though is that she's from Morris. Morris has just outside the Congressional district or Senate district does include part of the Congressional district. But of course under under a constitution. You don't have to live in the district to represent it when we look at the role. Money is playing in this race so far. Can you tell us about that? Well as I said over Weiss and and you know this is someone who has run for Federal Office frequently with no success But again that probably contributes to some name recognition there. At one point he had put in a million dollars out of his own pocket But recent campaign finance reports show that he's repaid six hundred thousand of that back as a as a personal loan. Still you know you're talking about a half million dollars there in in which is not an insubstantial some particularly these days when you got things that are affordable like digital advertising and social media. Then you've got great From Naperville he's raised more than eight hundred. Thirty eight thousand dollars. Resin about a half mil but that also includes two hundred thousand and personal loans then the rest of the field kind of terms off from there. How does that compare to the fundraising congresswoman Underwood has done so She Far and away is got money stockpile. I mean and and that's the advantage to of being an incumbent that She has a a very very healthy bank account. For whoever is going to take Ron. We'll state senator. Susan is accusing over Weiss of a scheme that circumvents donation roles and some GOP state reps are calling out over wise for what they're calling questionable fundraising practices. Can you explain what's going on? Yeah I mean as I said several times for Federal Office in federal campaign rules are very different than the state campaign rules. States rules are pretty much lax on what you can spend money for. In fact overweigh Scott Dinged by a consent agreement with the Federal Election Commission on an earlier run because his dairy had never run commercials before and all of a sudden. There were overweight dairy ads running at the same time. He was running for Federal Office so he paid a conciliatory agreement. Or fine as it. Were this time around the complaint. Is that over Weiss's According to the complaint filed by Sue. Resin that over Weiss is encouraging people to donate to his campaign politicians to donate to his campaign and in exchange. He will give a larger amount of money out of his. State Campaign Fund. He's very limited on using federal campaign dollars to give to other political candidates at the time. You're running for Federal Office. So this is being seen by resin and others as the potential of trying to cirque invent those rules on giving by using his State Campaign Fund to kind of trade cash for When we look at the messaging during this primary race are the candidates. Gop candidates running against each other right now or are they running against Lauren underwear. They're running against each other as much as they're running against underwood because part of the problem here is heavy group that all basically all support the same things You know they're all behind president trump. They're all about Trying to repeal and replace the affordable Care Act They're all Opposed to abortion rights. They're all kind of in lockstep along those lines. Are there any distinguishing factors between they met at policy level not so much on policy as as its personality? And that's where you get things like for example You have the newer candidates saying that. Somebody like over Weiss who has run several times. He's been a state senator for a while. Now is first elective office or sue resin that their career politicians and that it takes somebody who's an outsider to kind of weigh in as a factor in this race both over Weiss and grotto have been supported by the National Republican Congressional Committee for what they call their young guns program of candidates. Although I think you'd be hard pressed to consider either one of these guys necessarily a gun. Well let's turn to the incumbent Lauren Underwood in two thousand eighteen. She was able to unseat Republican in. What is as you mentioned a largely conservative district? How did she do that well? One is An and it was interesting We had the seven Republicans into the Tribune editorial board and talk to them and one of the things I thought was interesting was their take on. Why did this happen in it ranged from everything from Randy Hulk who was the Republican three term incumbent? Not working the district not taking the reelection seriously. Not Putting the resources in it was also the fact that they Catalina law who is the youngest candidate in the seven person field. She spent a about a cup of coffee in the trump administration for Working at The Department of Commerce She's being viewed as the Anti Ao. See Republican candidate but she said it was the fact that Lauren underwood represented everything. That rainy Hultman didn't not not as far as ideology. But as far as working the district presenting yourself as somebody new talking to the concerns of the district they all deny that ideology has changed. And I think I'd have to question that because I actually. I'm a creature of the western suburbs and over the years what had been reliably Republican is no longer reliably Republican and there was a mindset that people moved from the city out to do page county because they didn't like the Chicago politics and that was that was kind of the view of Republicans. Then but now those Republicans. They work those districts. It's people of Color. It's people of different ideology. It's not reliably Republican anymore. And that's how you end up with a seat like that. Getting flipped the same way that John Cast and was able to flip. Peter Roskam seat. Do you have a sense of how her constituents view her work in Congress so far I don't have a sense and as you point out. Her record is very liberal. But I think when you look at the issue the number one issue like a lot of places is healthcare and the fact that you know with her nursing background though. She never practiced which prompts Republican caller fo- nurse because everything's fo these days the fact that she does talk about healthcare she does talk about the fact of a pre existing conditions being so essential. And when you have parts of that district that are older and are traditionally more conservative speaking to healthcare and speaking to personally about those concerns about you know pre existing conditions and working on Medicare and Medicare expansion of those have some appeal. It interesting Lauren. Underwood's set a couple of weeks ago that she thinks no one running on the Democratic presidential ticket is helpful to her in her race. Unpack that for us. But does she mean? Well I think the and this is part of a strategy that actually comes from Sherry boost does from east moline. The Democrat who is head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in this goes back to the Tussle of Democrats and insurgent Democrats in protecting incumbents versus supporting perhaps more Progressive Democrats within the party. And what she was basically saying is. I'm trying to keep the presidential race out of my district if Bernie Sanders wins and of course there's some concern among establishment. Democrats that a sanders win could have negative effects down ballot on some of these seats. That flipped in the midterms. Like one involving Lauren. Under what like one involving Sean casten. So her effort is really to try to keep presidential politics awake. Joe Biden Talk. Keep Sanders talk away. Talk about what I do for your district. The bread and butter issues and and constituent service.

WBEZs Chicago And Illinois News Roundup: March 27, 2020

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset. It's Friday and that means it's time for our Friday news roundup when we break down the biggest local stories of the week but just a note. The Friday news roundup was recorded earlier today when the number of Kobe nineteen cases in Illinois was two thousand five hundred thirty eight and twenty six deaths since then numbers from the Illinois Department of Public Health have been updated Illinois now has three thousand twenty six confirmed covert nineteen cases and thirty four deaths for more information and the latest updates about covert nineteen in Illinois head over to WBZ DOT org. Because a lot has happened in just the last week. The city Chicago has shut down its entire Lakefront nearby parks the six Oh six trail and the Chicago river walk. Opin democ means it's here in our midst every day and we've got to all do our part governor. Jay pritzker echoing the same frustration as mayor Lori lightfoot. Not everyone is taking the stay at home order seriously. If you're doing these things you are spitting in the face of the doctors and nurses and first responders who are risking everything so that you can survive. Tell breakdown the week's top stories and more is W. T. W. political correspondent and host para shuts also wbz government and politics reporter. Becky Vivey so let's start with some city news. Mayor Lightfoot said Chicago could see forty thousand Cova nineteen hospitalizations in the coming weeks. If residents don't stay at home becky break that down for us. Yeah so she didn't actually say you know is this? The worst case. Scenario is this if eighty percent of people stay home. If this is only twenty percents stay home but it was certainly shocking number and defense. I got was really if people are not taking the stay at home order seriously. That is the number that are Are Curve would reach you know. People probably heard about flattening the curve and they've seen the modeling in various interactive's online it's going to spike it's GonNa keep exponentially growing and the number that the mayor and her top doctor gave yesterday. Was this forty thousand number. And that's hospitalizations that's not just cases that's people who require Hospital care so that was the sense that they gave yesterday as guys. This discussion is going to To get worse before it gets putter will yesterday. Life would announce he's closing many of the city's parks as well as speeches. The Lakefront trail the six. Oh six and the river walk to help slow the spread of corona virus. Let's your clip with that. I have ordered the closure of Chicago's Lakefront from North to South and south to north along with our six six trail and the river walk this order also restricts any and all contact sports opin dynamic means. It's here in our midst every day and we've got to all do our part. The mayor was visibly angry at people who have been ignoring governor Pritzker. Stay at home. Order Pairs. Just break down. What happened here. Well I think a lot of it stems from the images on Wednesday. I believe when the weather was nice and you just saw tons of people congregating on the drove by people were not giving that six foot distance or people in groups or people playing basketball playing soccer and some Kosov the mayor and Governor Livid I mean I. I've never seen the governor that emotional or as emotional as I've seen in the last few weeks and so what the Police Superintendent said was now. We're really going to enforce this. I mean in the beginning. They didn't WanNa really enforce it. This was just sort of guidance for everybody and now the late Francis closed if people don't obey these orders they're subject to I a warning and then Citation for five hundred dollars for a misdemeanor. And then if they still cause trouble than they could possibly be arrested. Although I don't think they'd go to jail because the jail is in the process of emptying out You know non violent offenders because of the cova there's something like seventeen Cova cancelled among inmates. There and then also among staff members so it's a mess more yesterday interim Chicago Police Superintendent. Charlie Beck said as you mentioned. There appears that officers have issued at least one citation that ended in an arrest so we gave warnings to crowds of individuals. Fifty six times yesterday. we did not document necessarily the individuals involved We have made one arrest in citation for crime related to failure to obey a health order as post by a police officer. There's very specific language in the Municipal Code. Which gives us this authority becky. I think there's still a lot of question around what enforcement looks like in real time around this any clarity on that you know. I think it's something that we will all sort of be watching I do know in speaking with you. Know some aldermen that it sounds like as it relates to the park closures. They are going to be putting up signs. They are going to kind of have areas barricaded off. I know you know. Every day I go I go pick up our sitter on. We've we drive past lake shore drive and there are barricades up now. People cannot get out on the running path out there. so You know there are police stationed to kind of stop. People and I think there will be those sort of physical enforcements sign it inch barricades and then you know if people don't listen or don't you know are still crossing those lines. That's where Charlie Beck said. You know we will officers have the the order of the edict to to you know. Give people a warning and then if they don't listen you know give them a citation will again this the closure of the parks and and the six? Oh Six This was all due to a concern around a spike of cases in Chicago and really trying to limit. The spread of the virus appears at this point. What's your sense of how prepare? The city feels to handle a spike in cases. I think if you hear the urgency in the voice of lightfoot in Pritzker they've seen stats that don't look good and I just watched a New York governor Cuomo's press conference saying given. You know the catastrophe that's going on there. They still believe. There's three weeks away from the apex. Imagine that it seems like we're about a week behind New York per capita here in our cases. If there's three weeks behind the apex I mean when this thing's going to finally start to turn I mean. How far behind are we so? I think they're listening to the medical professionals and they're giving them these dire warnings and then by the way you know. Hospitals are running out of resources. I spoke to Swedish Covenant Hospital Small Private Hospital on the north side. Who told me they were afraid. They were going to run out of masks in a few days. They did their own order of one. Hundred thousand mass from some source in China. They said they were frantically scouring the globe to find mass that were much more expensive than they normally paying. So so you. You've got all these different fronts where there's a lot of dire worry right now Well Mayor Lightfoot had had initially hoped to install a permanent Chicago police department super intendant ahead of the summer season when there's a surge in violent but that decision is being postponed because of covert nineteen. Becky where do we stand on the search for new top cop yes it was the Chicago Times? France Buhlmann took a look at this and talked to the police board which is in charge of that search and it sounds like before this. The search was kind of winding to an end They were down to maybe some finalists but at this point the head of the police board told sometimes listen. The Superintendent Search Pales in comparison to everything. We're facing right now. So it's sort of on hold which is true of a lot of things in city hall right now. Everything seemed to kind of grind to a screeching halt and City workers have really been deputized and dispatched to Be Kind of all hands on deck as it relates to the corona virus response and I just want to jump back for a second about how prepared the city might be Paris did talk about the them. You trying to get masks and supplies for hospitals the city and the state the top Top public health official else. Are Woody yesterday said that they went and visited? Mccormick place yesterday to to determine if That could be a place where they could set up a kind of a makeshift hospital At the hospital beds and so they are planning were dislike. I said D like comparison. We're all saying this is going to get worse before it gets better. That curve were still on the way up what Paris you've been on the ground in the city's neighborhoods this week. What are you hearing from residents about how they're dealing with this crisis? What's incredible? I mean I've I've been to A Chinatown I went to Devan Avenue or little India I went to south shore and I went to little village. And you know these neighborhoods are pulling together and local businesses and social service. Organizations are sort of the connective tissue especially in these neighborhoods because they're predominantly low income there either You know populations of color or immigrants and so they really rely on these local businesses. We saw so many examples of Local business that just it it struggling to pay the bills and yet it is staying open because it's essential and it's on the front lines for instance in on Divine Avenue Locally owned medical supplies store they bought a bunch of masks and and hospital equipment because residents were coming up just regular residents were asking for them and now they're out of that and then In little village a local pharmacy you know is acting like sort of the frontlines and so in coded nineteen screening where there's undocumented immigrants who don't know where to go. They're afraid to go and be have their status out. And so they're coming to the pharmacy and the pharmacist telling them what to do and giving them information and giving them a basic test so in these neighborhoods. It's all hands on deck approach and you know in the best of times people struggle to make ends meet in a lot of these neighborhoods and now you have people that need to come together to share a food a lot of people that have lost their jobs so you see sort of how communities work together. That's a really positive thing but you also see that these businesses don't have very long you know that they can stay shutdown like this. They're making drastic cuts. Just just to stay afloat well. We saw the startling unemployment numbers earlier this week and on our show we talk a lot about inequity in the city and Paris. I wonder from your reporting which neighborhoods are being. Hit hardest right now and how are some of the existing inequities in Chicago being compounded by this crisis there's no doubt that the lower income communities in. Chicago are being hit drastically. I don't even think we know the magnitude of it. I mean obviously the entire cities being hit but cities that are neighborhoods that already rely on the social services. A lot of these are nonprofits. And they're not getting donations right now either so somehow they have to find a way to stay afloat to distribute food to seniors or or medical supplies to residents and So again it's a day to day thing right now. We're just in the first week of this but but they worry about it even when the shutdown ends what's the aftermath GonNa be? How many people you we've talked to landlords that are forgiving rent We've talked I talked to local bank loan officer. Devan banks were restructuring the terms of some of our loans to the local businesses. Where maybe they'll pay interest only for a few months so again like a day today. Where cobbling this together. But if the economy goes into recession How long can folks in these neighborhoods? Keep it together before. They can't afford rent at all and they can't afford to eat. I mean and that's what I'm finding on the ground so we're GONNA have to watch that becky streets and Sanitation Commissioner John Tully till the Sun Times that he may suspend services like street sweeping and tree trimming talk about some of the other ways Kobe. Nineteen is changing how the city operates on a day to day level. I mentioned earlier. That sort of it has felt like all other issues. Have kind of ground to a screeching halt Most city departments are in some way dealing with this response to to cover nineteen. Or you know they themselves are working from home trying to sort of move things along in the background City Council is not meeting and I have spoken to a few Alderman There was a an order. I believe Governor Pritzker signed to make a few adjustments to the open meetings. Act that would allow them to meet. Virtually these would still be an open but they would be You wouldn't have to gather these Aldermen together physically. And they're they're some tentative talk about. Maybe we can start things back up late April in terms of legislating And I I also will say I've been a little struck by Some of the remarkable things that the city hall that we never could have imagined city hall would implement. I'm thinking like housing people in hotels really quickly. They're just doing it. And I think that will make for some very interesting conversations when we come kind of out on the other side of this crisis of what the will of you know what the city can actually do if they don't get too bogged down in the way they sort of used to do things legislating and I don't know Paris has additional thoughts on this but you know they've long people have criticized city council for you know tinkering around the edges and not not getting at like big important legislative things And it seems like they're everybody sort of with. This crisis has come together and achieved things. We would've never maybe imagined in in the past. You appears becky. There was talking about the way the city and the state is responding to this crisis. Do you think on the other side of this. There are conversations to be had about how how lawmakers respond. I'm seeing how they're just making things happen right now. Could we see a new? I don't know a new energy in in our lawmakers on the other side of this or maybe even a new bipartisan energy You know we're we're both sides kind of put aside the politics and I should mention that the city and state have responded to the situation in these low income neighborhoods. There's one hundred million dollar small business loan fund For you know companies with fifty or less folks who have lost at least twenty five percent of their business. The state Is Forgiving you know. Sales tax collections account forgiving sales tax website for awhile. Pritzker is announced a new fund A lot of these businesses are hoping that the federal stimulus is gonNA help them out so I mean the picture I just painted is is pretty dire but you know. Hopefully these things can mitigate it. But they can mitigate certain period of time when this all kind of when the fog clears to state. Ns you're going to be dealing with a massive budget holes in and they weren't prepared in even good times again. They were dealing with troubled budgets. So I think when you have a situation it's an emergency fiscally which this is going to be. You're going to have lawmakers come together put aside politics and say okay. We need to talk about new taxes. We need to talk about cuts and maybe even a drastically rethinking Of of of how we operate here because it it. It seems like it's headed to that point. I WANNA quickly talk about the state's unemployment numbers yesterday. State officials released new data showing more than one hundred fourteen. Thousand people filed unemployment claims last week peers. What can you tell us about that? Well one hundred fourteen I in in Illinois millions across the country The unemployment benefits in the stimulus. Bill are going to be extended. There'd be extended period of time where people can collect unemployment and an enhanced unemployment benefits and a lot of these folks You know they're they've been. They hope they've been temporarily laid off Because of the corona virus and get I can speak to his anecdotally. What I've seen on the ground. I've been to a lot of restaurants where they've either furloughed or laid off their employees with the hope that they can come back Once time you know when times are better so so I. Then you've got the GIG economy you know you've got liberal drivers and lift drivers are that are I. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure whether they fully qualify for for some of those benefits. I don't know Becky if if if you know any more about that yeah I don't I I do. I've been watching the federal legislation kind of wind through and it seems like sort of has morphed a bit but I I do think there are some provisions for Gig workers but certainly I would imagine a lot of those. Those folks are probably among the applicants figuring you know. At least I'll put my my name on the list. Try to get through. There's been a busy signal you know in Illinois. It's hard to even get through Right but I would imagine. Some of those claims are people reading their hands saying. Hey you know I think eligible. I'd like to be eligible. We'll have to wait and see how that all shakes out. Appears has leaned. Forget it. I'm sorry go ahead. Well no I was just GonNa say as we as we wrap up here when I hear what you're watching in the coming weeks. Oh boy I don't know how to you know I'm GonNa continue to go to different neighborhoods across the city plan to be on the west side next week Again I'm I'm watching to see how neighborhoods especially lower income neighborhoods or neighborhoods with high immigrant populations or or high Latino or African American populations are coping with us and so far. What I've seen people banding together staying really positive in really hard time but there's no doubt that it's those neighborhoods hardest becky. What about for you? Yeah I think like Paris. I think it's going to be sort of all a hand covering a lot of different stuff. I am going to be talking more with Alderman about what is happening in their individual wards. They all are facing similar but different challenges and I I'm curious to know like what what can the hyper local level of government do to help people immediately. Before some of these bigger things trickle down from the federal government and from the state to help people out what what are people just doing to get by day by day right now. That's it for the Friday round up our panel today. Wbz's Becky Viva and parachutes have WTT. W becky Peres. Thanks and be. Well thanks you too.

October 15, 2020 - Full Show

"Good evening and welcome to Chicago tonight on. Brandis Friedman here in our North West side studio. And Peres shuts reporting live from West. Suburban. Wheaton. On the show tonight. It's created a buzz I. Think in the western suburbs, how waiting is helping restaurants stay open during the pandemic. We will not kick. The can down the road even even in a pandemic. Cook County Board. President Toni preckwinkle tells us how her budget plan tackles the financial damage done by toby nineteen. Just moved up. Illinois, has made it easier to vote but obstacles remain. We're learning. Through other teams in other leagues, how to handle these type of scenarios? Bears become one of the latest NFL teams have player test positive for the corona virus. Behind the scenes of this year's reimagined Open House Chicago with Jeffery. There's a tour guide who's explaining what you're looking at. And how the National Museum of Mexican art is making your annual day of the dead exhibit accessible for everyone. The first Brennan says, we mentioned I am co anchoring tonight in West Suburban Wheaton, Du Page County home to Wheaton College, which was founded in eighteen fifty, nine as an abolitionist school and a part of the underground railroad. We College also educated the late Reverend Billy Graham the town is far more than that, and we'll have the latest on how it has come through Kobe and the economic crisis and just a bit. But first we toss it back to you. Paris. Thank you. Chicago's former Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is facing allegations of sexual assault in a lawsuit filed in Cook County Court today a female police officer claims that for three years Johnson's unwanted sexual advances included being forcibly kissed and touched forced to engage in sex acts and Johnson texting nude photos of himself to her. After first time in sexually assaulted me his opposites defeating quarters, he told me that I belong to. He referred to me as his girl. At times when I was able to avoid his sexual advances, he will tell me you got away this town. Eddie Johnson repeatedly abused harass me and made it clear that I would that I had to follow his orders which included engage in unwanted. Sexual activity without in order to keep my job. The plaintiff in the case Cynthia MacDonald is the same officer with whom Johnson was seen drinking with for hours at a downtown bar a year ago before Johnson was later found to sleep slumped over behind the wheel of his car. The incident eventually led to Johnson's firing after mayor lightfoot accused Johnson of lying to her and the public about what happened that night the city of Chicago is also named as a defendant. In the suit late this evening the city's law department responded with a statement saying quote we cannot comment on the specific allegations which if true would be inexcusable mayor lightfoot emphatically denies and common sense dictates that Eddie Johnson ever told the mayor about allegations of abuse or harassment of Cynthia. Donald. By Johnson Miss Donald's lawyers never claimed otherwise. Of course you can read more on that part of this story on our website. The Chicago Police Department is also responding to criticism of the recommendations. It's accepted from a use of force working group convened over the summer by Mayor Lori lightfoot. Activists have called the process a sham since the department is only adopting five proposed changes out of a total of one, hundred and fifty five today. Says Forty. Two of those proposed changes had already been adopted and of the others fifty would have directly contradicted the consent decree or state law others were rejected for various other reasons. The group was made up of thirty four people, including activists, civil rights, leaders, and politicians. And a big jump in the number of new corona virus cases being reported by the Illinois Department of Public Health today at more than four thousand previous days had been hovering between twenty five and twenty hundred new cases. Additionally, there were fifty three confirmed deaths today the state's total case count now stands at more than three, hundred, thirty, one, thousand cases and ninety one, hundred deaths. This brings the State's seven day positivity rate up to four point nine percent. And Not Ponte and the Cook County Board President's plan to close a four hundred million dollar budget gap fill. Brenda Today Cook County Board President Toni preckwinkle highlighted the dire financial condition. The county is in with a fiscal year twenty, twenty, one budget plan the six point nine billion dollar plan aims to shore up a four hundred, ten, million dollar budget shortfall driven by the covid nineteen pandemic. But instead of raising taxes, preckwinkle says she's instituting layoffs in the county health system tapping into reserve funds and eliminating vacant sheriff's Office positions to Keep Cook County's finances afloat joining us now to discuss her budget plan is Cook County Board President Toni preckwinkle president practical so much for joining us first of all the. The budget is I mentioned is four, hundred, ten, million dollars short. Just, how devastating has covid been to county's finances? Well as you know, Phil, why came into office a decade ago we had a four hundred, eighty, seven, million dollar shortfall to try to address. This is the biggest shortfall since then and in lots of ways, it's been more challenging because of course, we're in the midst of a pandemic and economic collapse, but I'm very grateful to my staff from the commissioners who've worked so hard over the past decade made the tough choices and difficult decisions that brought us to the where we had the wherewithal the reserves and. Collaboration cooperation of are separately elected officials ought to put together a balanced budget without new taxes in the midst of this calamity speaking of reserved here taking about seventy, five, million dollars out of the Reserve Fund some might say this is kicking the can down the road but was this inevitable given the circumstances you're facing right now? Over your blessed to have more than four, hundred, million dollars in reserves and reserves are of course, the Rainy Day Fund, and if this isn't a rainy day, I don't know what is so we took some money not all of it of course, but took some money out of our reserves to address the challenges this year we still have her in our reserves, the recommended amount of dollars that the Government Financial Officers Association Jeff. Recommends. So we're not dipping below the recommended bar, but we are using some of our reserves. Well, one point of criticism is of your plan is the proposed layoffs at structure and providence hospitals. In fact, today's healthcare workers protests outside the county building. Here's Stroz, your hospital employ tyrone born. And this DEMOC affects morale black and Brown communities that any other communities in the county of Cook and in the city of Chicago. Why would you want to cut these jobs that serve these under privileged communities? Somebody say that right? We go to work every day. We risk our lives and the lives of our families. Nobody told us that our jobs would be at risk. President Perko. Why make cuts in the to the healthcare system during the time of pandemic? Well First, let me speak to Providence Hospital. Provident Hospital on the south side of Chicago near my home as served the African American community for decades most recently as a public institution and we're investing more in. Provin, we're creating a lifestyle center so that people can deal with their chronic illnesses. Where is the tooting dialysis services expanding other services at Providence? We're keeping the emergency room open although reducing staff a little bit to reflect the fact that we have sixty eight people who come in every day said only six eight people what we stick we continue with our plans to invest more than two hundred, million dollars in a new product Providence, and we're expanding services expanding outpatient services as destroyer. Again, we're reducing staff to reflect the utilization of the services. You know you can't. Effectively and responsibly overstaffed services you have to respond to needs a noodle association and that's what we're doing both at Providence and Roger. More than three hundred job cuts are coming out of the Cook County. Sheriff's Office. Why so many there? We work closely with the sheriff and with all are separately elected officials come up with a balanced budget. I'm very grateful to him, and so all of the rest of our separately elected officials for being willing to work closely with us to manage our budget. In this tremendous crisis I would point out that what we're doing in the sheriff's office and elsewhere almost everywhere else is reducing the number of positions that are open but not filled. In other words we're eliminating agencies in this by did cycle there are very few layoffs hundred and thirty in our healthcare system, and that will probably decreases the result of. Retirements, and resignations and a modest number of people in the recorder's Office as we absorb that office into the clerk sauce. What impact presser imprint Quaco did the civil unrest over police brutality as well as the disproportionate impact of covid on communities of color have on how you approach this budget. Well. You know as we looked at my my third term, we put together a policy roadmap. I'm deeply indebted to my chief of staff when the Hanes. And the rest of our staff for that good work. The policy roadmap was issued in October of twenty eighteen and it suggested that we needed to focus on racial equity that they were tremendous. Inequities in Cook County. That are black and Brown communities were disproportionately impacted by the the criminal justice system. By every single crisis came along and we needed to look we invested in programs and services at the needs of black and brown communities, and so that focus on equity which was crystallized in our work in in in two thousand eighteen has guided us as we prepare this budget and we're investing as a result of forty million dollars in operations that. Our Health and hospital system investment this year operations is one hundred, twenty, three, million and it was eighty three million last year we're investing twenty million more in violence prevention recidivism reduction and restorative justice grants to community organizations through our justice. Advisory Council and we're making additional investments in economic development in our suburban communities through the bureau of economic development so altogether. Forty million more operations in healthcare twenty million for our criminal justice reform initiatives twenty million for the Bureau of Economic Development to support families and individuals and businesses in our suburbs. It's it's more than eighty million dollars in equity investments. How do you balance all public health concerns with how some businesses are going to be struggling even more during the colder months I'm thinking specifically of restaurants as you know, they're under tremendous economic pressure right now how do you balance? Those competing interests. Was You. Know we got support from the Federal Government through the cares act and we use some of that money to support individuals on GIG workers and small businesses in our suburbs who were facing a. Tremendous, economic challenges it began with a five years zero interest loan program or gig workers and small business and more. Recently, we initiated a grant program so that same universe. So we've been working hard to try to figure out how we can be helpful to contract workers and small businesses in in suburban Cook County and as you know, the city of Chicago gets a separate allocation of resources of federal dollars to meet needs within the city. My understanding that your plan was built on the assumption that federal aid would not becoming. could you make it without federal aid? We put we put our budget together without anticipating any federally have no idea if federal aid is forthcoming and we need to have our budget enacted by November thirtieth and I think we've put together a solid plan. President local. Thank you so much for this update. We very much appreciate it. And I'll, Brandis we, go, back to you. Thank, you Phil. Page County is just west of Cook. County, and is home to a number of affluent suburbs but that doesn't mean it has been spared the health and economic hit caused covid nineteen as part of our in your neighborhood series parachutes, shuts and produce them. Orissa Nelson have been reporting in West suburban Wheaton today home of the historic. Wheaton. College, to find out how the town's businesses have mostly stayed intact. Perez. Joins US now from Martin Memorial Plaza near Main Street. Hey again. Paris. Abe Ranch Yeah Weeden was put on the map back in eighteen fifty nine with Wheaton College which was founded on the principle of the abolishment of slavery. It was a very important spot on the underground railroad Illinois fast forward many years educated the late Reverend Billy Graham in the college now, like the rest of the town is dealing with Cova did mostly closed limited in person learning people having classes outside as four wheaton itself it has a population of about fifty two thousand and it is recorded over eight hundred covid nineteen cases and twenty. Five deaths as of this morning, and it's also known as a place of religion many churches dot the landscape here in town also built a modern downtown with cutting edge restaurants and shops in the downtown association says those restaurants have done. Well, this summer better than expected compared to other nearby municipalities in part of the reason, is that the town foot the bill for a big giant tent on Hale Street here shut down this main thoroughfare just so that restaurants could have outdoor dining in the tent and be association says it's proven a big success. That not only provided extra business for restaurants on that strip but it just brought a lot of people not from Wheaton to downtown Wheaton and. So it was. Great to meet a lot of New People I'm the owner here New People from out of town coming in those tents while yeah they're supporting those businesses directly We're seeing benefits outside of that kind of that central hub people spilling out and exploring the rest of the towns. that. Tend to shared by about eight restaurants. One of those being the Latin fusion place L. Thira, which says it's been doing about seventy percent of it's normal business lease in the warm weather months. It's not too bad when you know we've heard over the last several months restaurants that did about ten, twenty, twenty, five percent of what they normally do. Obviously, the winter is a concern which is why the town is also foot the bill for the heaters to go inside those tents. Very important. You know what I mean because I tell them only for the person business especially with call this stuff you know a lot of business. We'll have some money. We don't have money to pay that kind of money. All the tents heaters everything here. And we mentioned that Wheaton is heavily Christian it's also about eighty five percent, Caucasian. So the decision to limit in-person Church gatherings earlier on was met with some. Controversy Pity Pastor Joshua Mooney at college church, which by the way is built by the same people that built Wheaton College in eighteen, fifty, nine says he's had to navigate preaching to prisoners who right now are intensely divided on all these political issues of the day. All desire is to minister to people as we can as a church and Costa is a spectrum of opinions on many different things frightened now. And But. In. Christ united we're not united around him not. Not, a political opinions and our opinions about. Kovic mosque wearing and all the other stuff. Gets no, people around you. Catholics around you. Be. Active in the community. And when you get to know people and then you move beyond stereotypes and and what are the kind that can be racial stereotypes, religious stereotypes, cultural stereotypes he gets them know someone. You mentioned at the top brass that the perception here is that dupage county wheaton is a very affluent area of the Metropolitan Region but that doesn't mean poverty doesn't exist about five percent rate of poverty here in Wheaton, and that's where organization like the People's resource. Center comes into play, and so they're providing assistance several areas right now but they say that it's the food bank the need for the food right now has skyrocketed since the beginning of COVID. The reputation of being very affluent while that is true for some is definitely not true for all. There's a huge need here. That's part of our mission to be able to meet that need for all residents of dupage county. We are seeing a lot more first time clients here and since we switched to modified. Food Service, our food pantry distribution in March, we have distributed over twenty thousand food boxes to our neighbors here dupage county and have answered over two thousand social service financial, assistance phone calls One more thing about Weeden is the birthplace and childhood home of the late great.

He might be pleased to find out now that Wheaton is quiet little suburb is home to its own Improv comedy theater these days. We'll be back in a bit. I want to mention one more thing we're told that high schools here, and we are going to go back to a hybrid system of learning in person and online starting on Monday. Elementary schools have been doing that all throughout now but we'll talk a little bit more about that. especially given the spike in Kobe we're seeing across the state of Illinois that you reported on earlier but for now, we toss it back to you. Law going on there and Wheaton it's a nice fire you've got Paris. Hopefully it keeps you guys warm. Thank you. We'll see you in a bit. With the election just weeks weeks away and early voting in full swing candidates are on the campaign trail and political ads outnumber regular commercials but just how ready are voters and the authorities that run elections Amanda finicky joins us now with more Amanda. And as we got a glimpse of what voting during a pandemic would look like during the mark primary when we were really just learning about. And also, taking measures to try to prevent it spread in some seven months. Later, we are still adapting to the corona by resin amid pandemic organizers are working to get out the vote. I'll vote is our voice and being quiet and being timid is not going to get. Your issues heart. A new state law is meant to keep up voter turnouts but still keeping people at home with Illinois sending our minders to active voters to apply to vote by mail. The latest of those reminders supposed be coming from the Secretary of State's office today. Actually, those changes are the things that Northern, Illinois, university professor, Scott Trump angles studies. He has just published a new study updating index in place since the mid nineties it measures how easy or not states make it to vote. Their states in the US right now, where that have still have voter registration deadline that registration deadlines coming on many states Texas for instance, in your nine registered to vote you know you're not gonna not going to be voting and but you know early voting has become more popular but some states still don't allow it, and then there's quite a bit of derogation in the number of early voting days. Illinois has moved up in the rankings on that index and not just because of the new line mentioned that was put in place due to Cova. It is also thanks to automatic voter registration. Now, the state ranks fourth on that ease of voting index. Now, despite those who are stoking fears of fraud with this move to more voting by mail, he says that greater ease of voting does not mean it is easier to commit fraud. The Cure is worse than the disease like you could stop out all fraud by making people by purging registration rolls and making everyone reregister every two years. But the problem there is that you would disenfranchise a lot of people but we're concerned about release the politic democracy, right? US. Had for historically has been a beacon democratic conclusion, right? Now. He says it does make a difference in voter turnout. The easier that it is vote more people participate in elections says it matters in other areas to. One thing we know now is that we think the cost of voting. Measure something about the electoral climate of estate. We know that blacks black Americans are under represented in state legislatures where the cost of voting is higher. So that is an appears as the blacks less likely or less willing to run for. Public. Office. In, climate electoral climate that has more restrictive. That is not to say that transitions changes in election law are not without their growing pain. We've talked with county clerks struggling to keep up with floods of vote by mail applications, and then on the back end waiting for all of those to be processed once ballots are turned in. May. Prolong the wait for election results after November third also, Easter Seals Angela Williams is on alert for challenges. Persons with disabilities may face especially given covid nineteen concerns about mask-wearing social distancing in long lines at the polls. There are exactly a lot of potential challenges that would limit a person with disabilities ability to participate in our democracy. It's important that the polling locations are accessible and by that I mean accessible that they're not in buildings that are older with there are stairs which would prevent a person that's in a wheelchair or is using a walk or some other device. Another example of in person voting. That's important is that the voting machines themselves are accessible that they're low enough for person in a wheelchair or a little person. Meanwhile should travel agencies today held a workshop to drill for election dates. The city's emergency operations center is going to be open and activated on November third. Everything.

The bears have four and one record after eking out a one point win over the buccaneers last. Thursday. But that record may flatter them up next the bears are on the road to face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday who oddsmakers have made the favorites. Joining us now to talk about a positive Kobe test for the bears, and of course, the upcoming game against the panthers is former bears offensive. Lineman. James Big Cat Williams welcome back big cat. So I let the absolutely let's talk about this positive test was a player on the practice squad. How much do you think positive Cova test within the you know within the organization will unsettle the players. I mean all the players that are in the building now know that they came into the situation you know. They had they had. They had to be careful. They knew the bills possibility -bility of something happening of of a positive test of possibly multiple. Test so I think as a player they were. Ready. For this they they knew what the situation was ready to deal with. As a result of the positive test, the bears have changed their practice schedule with just a walkthrough practice on Monday. How much might that disruption in the practice schedule hurt their ability to perform on Sunday? Coaches. How can the coaches through through the time that they have? How can the coaches get the best out of the players been prepared for? Carolina you look at Tennessee Games played on. TV. Tennessee had. Several days away from the facilities they had things on June, but they were still able to product on feel. On Tuesday. So it's possible. It can be done and no looking back at his house is someone to communicate with his players. So that bodes wealth. Now we've also heard a lot about you know schools. Open or remote learning, and also student athletes. You're a high school football coach. What are your thoughts on postponing high school football until the spring? It's unfortunate that it had to be done. The sleep Illinois. We are one of the few places that does not have ice. So. You know it's it's it's hard answering questions to the kids. Well, why can these other kids play? We can't play. You know it's just what you have to deal with right now and. Enter kids that had dreams in college and Playing College football. I was so out here if they if they want you to find and no, one's no one's often so. It'll be. It'll be all what are you hearing from some of the parents and the players? Well being a parent myself in having a having a child in college, it's not able to touch football field because of the Kobe right now but it's you know it's a little you feel for because you know that you know a child senior year whether split ball whether it's Lacrosse whatever sport it is to havoc post all habit interfere with their possibilities of Hollywood's you know emission one. mentioned a knows but. Things will work. Okay so let's get back to the bears got four and one record does that record doesn't sell them a little bit higher than they should be because some of those wins were not very pretty. Does, it's they are they are very lucky foreign one but you know. Sometimes. It's better to be lucky than good with this with these sport wins they had an opportunity to figure out things that they need to fix and how they want to go about fixing. So you know now now just about taking care of the little things you heard nagging talking. Earlier, the sleepworld speak as far as little. Why receivers running the right routes at the right offense. Lineman at policemen on. Lund blocks. Knowing that's quarterback stirring pass. These are little things but little things that help you get better. So these are the things that I think. Focusing. So. Late this evening, we heard that mayor lightfoot sort of an update on the possibility of fans returning to soldier field nothing is. Certain yet, but it sounds like there's some optimism there. What do you think that could mean look like. Well. It's GonNa take a lot of communication. And it's GonNa take a sound. A sound of infrastructure for them to protect everybody not only the people that are coming to watch the Games. But the people that are going to be there and have work the got you want to try and make sure all those people are saying fan you know understand the roles and abide by the rules are the penalties for not abiding by the rules you've seen a couple of teams around the. NFL But. Have had. You know a few more fans than I expected right now but you know you really haven't heard about the and nor will you zero about you know what is the impact on unity for these people attending? So if they can work these things out and get a number where they feel as though, everyone's going to say and the bears are still going to have an opportunity their money. comes. Okay. So we've got about forty five seconds left your prediction. The bears are on the road against the Carolina Panthers who bookmakers had made the favorites big prediction. What do they need to do thirty seconds? Thirty Seconds Carolina is a good offense they're not great. They're not on either side of the ball. So say this bears have an opportunity to reestablish the run game and hits long shots down field off of that once they get Carolina's players into the box defensively. You know the bears has to come out and be the base. All that money along the frontline has show itself and don't cut this team and he slapped because of the injuries that they had. Famous for the Bears Twenty, seven, twenty, four, twenty, seven, twenty, four with the famous bears defense. All right. Our thanks to James Vacate Williams we appreciate it as always. Bruce. And still to come on Chicago tonight, one of the boldest underground railroad stops in Illinois we talked with the President of Wheaton College about its history as part of our in your neighborhood series. Jeffrey Bear on the redesigned open house Chicago in this week's asked Jeffrey. Plus. How local artists are honoring loved ones for this year's Day of the dead. But I more today's top stories former top COP Eddie.

The officer at Cynthia Donald is shown here with her attorneys this afternoon she's the same officer with whom Johnson was seen drinking at a downtown restaurant.

No in a statement from an attorney, Johnson adamantly denies the accusations Tom Needham says quote he did not assault or abuse or harass Cynthia Donald. None of the things she is claiming happened ever happened. Now. There's more of this story on our website. A big jump in the number of new corona virus cases being reported by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Today at more than four thousand new cases, previous days had been hovering between twenty five and twenty, one, hundred, twenty, eight, hundred new cases additionally, there were fifty three confirmed deaths. The state's total case count now stands at more than three hundred and thirty one thousand cases and ninety one, hundred deaths. This brings the state's positivity rate up to four point nine percent. After weeks of Whiplash, the US census count is officially wrapping up today advocates are encouraging residents to complete their forms. Now since they only have until four, fifty, nine am Central Time Supreme Court decision late yesterday afternoon granted the trump administration's request to halt the count. The city says so far only sixty percent of Chicago have completed the census form which will shape federal funding for schools, roads, and healthcare. And check back in with parachutes his co anchoring tonight show from West suburban Wheaton as part of our Chicago tonight in your neighborhood series Paris. Brennan's were here with Wheaton's Mayor Phil Cease macy's thanks for joining US tonight. So we talked earlier in the show about eight, hundred, fifty cases of Covid in Wheaton how is your town been impacted both on the health level in the economic level? Well. We've been like other communities in in the area it impacted our residents as far as their work I mean this is a commuter town in you know people aren't going downtown to the extent they did in the past people are working from home. So you're seeing more people out in the community particularly families walking So you know part of it is the same as you've seen in other communities economically You know there was a slow period basically through march through June since June things have been coming back and they're not back where they've been but they're. Better than they've been, and you've got that big tent on Hale Street close down the street the town paid for the tenth about eight restaurants as I understand are sharing this tent and they all told me that it went really well better than expected. Yes. There's been a great buzz about the tents. It's almost kind of resort community feel we have tents downtown. We also have tents outside various restaurants across the community and it's worked well. So how's it going to work in winter with the cold months of one was telling us that the electric heaters are coming in hopefully this weekend. That we're GONNA. See We've made the decision to keep the tents through the end of December. were making taking steps, heat the tents, and that equipments being installed this week. So we'll see You know this is not exactly your purview, but we learned that the high schools, Wheaton Warrenville south we north they're going to go to a hybrid learning. They're going to do some in person learning now starting. Next week. With a spike in cases, are you worried about doing a safely and how it might impact the rest of the town of kids come home to their parents and families? He you know that that's a concern but you know I looked at the data you know the school district put out some data as far as the elementary schools and there's only been a couple of incidents We should meet the elementary schools doing in person classes and you know even within Wheaton we've seen a spike basically between September and where we are in October, you know there's been a range of thirty to forty five cases per week so. We're we're still within that range. You know as as we mentioned earlier, rely weakness known as is a very religious community, lot of churches. Have you what have you heard from parisioners, debates all across the country folks that are really upset at the shutdown that they couldn't have full congregations, church, house, that aspect of it going here well, that that's a concern of, but he to the churches has set up a program To allow participation you know some people doing it outside Some have developed very extensive reservation systems to maintain spacing and still have services. So young people of adjusted you mentioned commuting were here. Right. By the metric says, we always have been every stop that we've been on. You mentioned that this is one of the most. One of the busiest stretches of train in the country. 'cause there's also what is it the Union Pacific West Line. Yes. So with the slowdown metro, how has that affected? The town usually get commuters that on their way to metro to go work, they'll stop at the coffee shop at the breakfast shop. Is that still happening that you know that's been a challenge you know we have You know we have coffee stations within the train stations, and of course, their businesses dried up. We have a couple restaurants right across from the train station. So you know that that's been a challenge You know you look at our commuter lots they're still basically empty. So you get revenue from those. Yes. We get parking revenue and that's needless to say straight up a little bit. Have you have you had fiscal challenges here as a result? A little bit you know our revenues this year, we expect to be down roughly twenty percent You know that may fluctuate the sales taxes actually held up better than we expected but you know the thing that keep in mind is there's always a lag there. There's like a three-month flags. So you know even when things start getting better, it's going to be a while before we. See that before the money comes into the fiscal office. All right Mayor Phil sees thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. Thanks for coming to weaken. It's good to be here and brands. We toss it back to you and we'll be back in a bit with the head of Wheaton College. You know Paris actually, I haven't had as big of a problem with the tracks you have. They just tend to find us. That's what it is. All right. We'll see in a bit. Thank you up next a preview of this year's open how Chicago with Jeffery Bear and hint it's going to be a lot more open this year, but first a look at the weather. Chicago tonight is made possible in part through the generous support of the Julius Frankel Foundation. A Strikingly Modern Church helped make Gospel music famous a replica of Independence Hall and a secret garden filled with community art and honoring a Puerto Rican hero. These are just a few of the hidden treasures you can discover starting this weekend as the Chicago architecture centers open how Chicago returns for its tenth anniversary with some major changes in the age of Cove Nineteen, Jeffrey bears is here with a look at the redesigned event in this week's Geoffrey Geoffrey. Brandis. So here's the question. What should I check out in this year's open? How Chicago how have things changed due to the pandemic? Well of course, the wildly popular open house Chicago is usually a chance to get a peek inside buildings that are normally off limits to the public not this year of course, because we can't go inside buildings due to the pandemic but feared not. Organizers have completely reimagined the whole thing they've shifted the focus to Chicago's neighborhoods and communities and created an APP for the series of outdoor walking tours and self guided trails. There are walking friendly sites in Pullman Lincoln, Park Chinatown Evanston oak hard really all over of the event has expanded from one weekend to ten days. This year and there are virtual lectures, panels and events planned throughout now neighborhoods. That's a pretty broad template especially in Chicago where should one starts Well. Okay. I, think a great place to start is the Austin neighborhood on Chicago's west side full disclosure. My mom grew up in that neighborhood in the nineteen thirties and forties of right off the Green Line L. at Central, avenue is the Austin Town Hall building which bears a striking and as we're learn a purposeful resemblance to Philadelphia independence, Hall. Okay. So here's why. Before this building was built, Austin was actually a suburb and it was the seat of CICERO township government. But in Eighteen Ninety, eight Austin voted to allow the L. to be to allow the L. train to be extended out here on other parts of the township or quite upset about that fearful of CD dwellers invading their suburban refuge of so they voted to Annex Austin to Chicago actually against its will on. So this current building from nineteen thirty on sits on the former site of Cicero town hall of but despite its name, it never was a central government itself. It's park. House just a few blocks away in Austin is one of open house. Chicago's new trails featuring a walking tour of these rare shingle style houses known as Frederick. Arch shock homes I'm shocked was an eminent Chicago architect in the late nineteenth century who designed many buildings all over the Austin area of notice, the houses wide lawns, which recall Austin history again as a suburban enclave. One highlight is the house on the corner of Midway Park and race. Avenue. Which shows designed for himself, the shingle style might remind you of those weathered seaside homes in. CAPE. Cod and indeed this style originated and is much more common east. Coast? But it. Later sort of Cross pollinated with prairie style that originated in the mid West Chicago's Frank Lloyd Wright, and so they're also themed trails that attendees check out. Yes and they're super helpful in neighborhoods like bronze bill on the South side where there's just so much history. On the Open House Chicago App you'll find the trail that's called performance spaces in Brownsville black metropolis, and this compiles sites like before rooms seeing here on these sites helped to spawn this area's Vibrant Cultural Blues and Gospel Music the days when African American the African American population was concentrated on this area due to racist housing policies This open house trail also includes the really remarkable first Church of deliverance designing nineteen thirty nine way back in thirty nine look at this by the first licensed black architect in Chicago Walter. T Bailey on the church was building what some called the streamline modernes style kind of like space age art deco. which is highly unusual design for a Church of First Church of deliverance played a huge role in the development in proliferation of Gospel Music Services were broadcast on Radio, Helping Popularize Gospel Music. CHICAGO. Really all across the country. And actually this is a great opportunity to check out of the Open House Chicago Apps? One of the APPS coolest features in my opinion audio clips from people, sharing their stories and insights about the the buildings and the neighborhoods that we're looking at. So let's take a listen to Gospel historian Robert Narrows Bridge, a talking about verse Urs Church of Deliverance, takeaways? Sacred and Secular all insane view. So it had the sense of being part of the community just like a grand theater or the monogram theater, but it was a church. Jeffrey sounds like a full day already. Well well, yeah. But remember this year you have ten days. to explore all these neighborhoods. So if you're for more I recommend making your way to Humboldt Park epicenter of Chicago's large Rican community to visit a truly one of a kind outdoor space in Chicago. It's a little community. Filled, with Puerto Rican art and at the center of it is a statue of Puerto Rican nationalist hero to Pedro. beat to Campos's. And the plaza is called a lot a sita date Don Pedro. So there's just one of the gems in. In that community of a quick plug tomorrow evening, I'm actually going to be the captain for Open House. Chicago's Trivia Nights. One of the one of the team captains it's being held virtually of course. And it's open to the public. So there is still time to sign up a chance to sign up before nine o'clock tomorrow morning. So if you're interested get on it right away, you can learn more by going to the ask Jeffrey section of our website. Do it now lots of fun stuff to get in Jeffrey thanks so much my pleasure and don't forget that you can visit our website for more details about this year's open how Chicago and while you're there, don't forget to submit your own question to Jeffrey Bear. That's IT WTT W dot com slash ask Jeffrey. And never go back to pair of shots in West suburban Wheaton where he spent the day reporting as part of our Chicago tonight in your neighborhood series Paris. Yet Brennan's were here with Dr Phillip Break in the President of Wheaton, college we also have metro train coming right up ahead of us. So dot growing with the talk a little louder. We mentioned earlier the History Wheaton College founded by evangelist abolitionists part of the underground railroad. Can you just tell us a little bit more about that history? So admired the men and women founded Wheaton College they were part of the city of Wheaton and they had a vision for college for Christ, in his kingdom that would reach the world in fact, they liked be right by. Act because they knew it was a bridge between East and West and from the beginning, they were deeply committed to the immediate abolition of slavery that was strong commitment of Jonathan Blanchard our first president he was a nationally known abolitionist and we're proud of the history that we have here in Wheaton end at the college that we were a key stop in the underground railroad. What about that? Stop because there there was a little bit of confusion over whether it really wasn't a. Long Time, there was a discussion about that and I I thought maybe it was a myth because I have students usually freshman asked me about the tunnels on campus and we don't have any tunnels on campus but maybe twenty years ago we found a letter from a union soldier who had a student at Wheaton was fighting in the civil war and he wrote to his family about the experience of. Having fugitive slaves come to campus worship with the students in the chapel on their way up to Canada into freedom in the north, and that confirmed the legacy of the underground railroad here in. Wheaton, proud legacy here and so how does how do with that legacy? How have the talks today about civil unrest in racial injustice played out on campus very much a conversation on Wheaton's campus about a third of. Our incoming students are students of color from North America from all over the country in we're affected by what's happening in our nation with racial injustice conversations about racial reconciliation. That's a lively conversation on our campus We look to history as a legacy that we want to live up to, and we also, of course, look to a biblical vision all people made in the image of God equal in the. Sight of God, we want to live that out on our campus. Are Those conversations? Go you say that they are you know tense conversations I mean give me an example what what kind of conversations have you heard? Yeah. So I mean one here's an example Paris if I. IF I talked to my African American students on campus and ask them what is your experience or your family's experience of racial profiling? Almost, every one of my students will have a story to tell. we're deeply affected by what's happening in our country and it touches every one of us So that's a conversation we want to have in the classroom it's a conversation we want to have in the dormitory. It's a conversation we want to have in our in our chapel and other settings on campus because we believe in a vision of unity in the context of diversity, we want to live that out as a church and as a college community I'll also you're living this out through the era of Covid and you've had in person classes. Is it ninety percent of students are back on something like that? Maybe a little bit more most of our campuses back for. In person learning, it's really modified. So students are masking up in the classroom. We also have maybe ten percent of our students are studying remotely. Some of those are international students halfway around the world. So our faculty are putting all of that together into one classroom experience and we are having some classes outside as well. I see philosophy students walk past my house they talk about a question in philosophy on their way to a local park and they have lecture then they walked back. It's really like Plato and Socrates in Ancient Greece. The End, the conversation that's been going on for two thousand years still going on outdoors at Wheaton College Plato and Socrates did it was twenty below? See if that was different in each in Greece than it is in the northern suburbs and and so any any outbreaks have you been able to contain it on we've been really really blessed We've had fewer than ten cases among our students faculty and staff and I said to our student body. This isn't a sign that are precautions are unnecessary. It's a sign that they are working and what happens. In, those cases are the isolated. So we have a whole system of quarantining students that have been touched by contact tracing isolating students that have a positive case we're supporting them with meals with counseling services with student health contact on a daily basis, and we have a quarantine facility on campus if we need to use it the new normal here at. Wheaton. College. Well, Dr Phillip Thank you so much for joining to. An Brennan we will be back to wrap it up and just a bit but first we toss it back to you from Chile Wheaton Chilly Weeden. The train did in fact, find you at the top of that interview. It did we'll see you in a bit. The National Museum of Mexican art is keeping its annual day of the dead exhibit alive now with virtual tours.

I'm sasha an simon's this is reset illinois saw its first case of the novel corona virus one year ago this week since then nearly nineteen thousand residents of the state have lost their lives in the virus continues to spread look around the nation outside of illinois. And you'll see the pandemic at its worst in many places. The risk of a resurgence in illinois particularly with extremely contagious new variants is serious. Now all eyes are on the vaccine effort and one of his first moves in office. President biden has pledged to get out one hundred million doses in his first one hundred days. I'm signing an executive action to use the defense production act and all other available authorities to direct federal agencies and private industry to accelerate. The making of everything is needs to protect test vaccinate and take care of our people and today in illinois started phase one b of the vaccine effort teachers frontline essential workers and anyone older than sixty five are eligible for the vaccine. So things seem to be rolling. But how do we make sure the rollout is fair and equitable all this week on reset. We're examining who has access to the vaccine in our area how it's being distributed and how we can ensure that the most vulnerable among us are prioritized. It's the latest in our series closing the gap where we explore disparities in the chicago region and talk to people working to address them now in just a bit. We'll hear from a medical ethicist in critical care physician. Who's been working on this issue. But first let's turn to audra wilson president and ceo of the shriver center on poverty law. The center has a list of recommendations for the illinois department of public health and for the biden administration audra. Hello hi thanks for having me also with us. Is alex goldfarb. She's the lead on the atlantic's covid racial data tracker which collects and publishes covid nineteen data to understand the pandemic in the us. Alice welcome. Thank you for having make i want to. I say that this is of course an ever evolving situation. We learn new data and knowledge about this virus every single day. So we are bringing you the latest that we know at this juncture. Now audra. i'll start with you. Because we know that latin people are contracting the virus at higher rates than any other demographic. Black people are dying from it. More than any other demographic why is it important that equity factored if not centered in these next steps. You just said it. I mean the fact of the matter is that the covid nineteen pandemic has exposed a magnitude of equities in the united states. It's highlighted structural racism. Our institutions practices and policies and the mortality rate is more than twice as high in black and latinx and indigenous populations than white populations and a lot of data reveals that. There's a very strong socioeconomic component. So people who are lower on the socioeconomic spectrum are also more likely to be affected. And so that's the reason why these vaccines administered. It's essential that we assure access for those who need it the most alice. Can you pick up where audrey left off. Absolutely i think that what other says about how. This pandemic has exposed the structural factors. It's really important and one of the things we are seeing is that the data doesn't entirely exist to understand the extent of that everything that we are seeing in the data shows. Just how much disparity there is in the ways that people are being affected by cove nineteen but without more complete data more consistent data several guidelines. About what should be made public. We don't fully understand who is being affected. And how and where this conversation is so timely. It's a critical time to be talking about this because the rollout is literally happening. Now audra take a step backwards with me here. The disparities cove in nineteen outcomes mirror existing disparities in healthcare and access to quality care for communities of color. Can you talk about that absolutely so there has been always. Historically a challenge would be able to get quality healthcare to communities of color and while the affordable care act was monumental as it allowed many communities that had been previously disadvantaged not able to access quality care to now have quality care. It's still a continuing problem. So whether people have good primary care physicians with getting full coverage we are still in the country that relies upon employer based health insurance. Which is why the aca was so important because if you happen to work for someplace. It did not have employer based health coverage. What were your options. So health equity particularly communities of color has been a long standing issue. So when you combine that with where we are with cole did even though there have been some very significant gains that have been made. It's just exposing again. Some of these problems. There are surfacing in ways that now we're seeing with when it comes to distribution being able to get to their primary care physicians to have access getting the information. They need to know. Were i go for treatment. So that's why this can cumulative problem that we have with healthcare access and now sing in light of covid draw we also know that chicago schools staff is now part of phase one b and that begins today in you list of who you think needs to be considered i. Can you share that with us. I think that the faith one b right now that we have an illinois is a really good list. They are essential frontline workers. You're talking about the people who are the most exposed on a daily basis and they do not have the option to work from home. These also include from grocery store clerks to folks working in warehouses manufacturing food processing plants where there have been many outbreaks happening because they cannot socially distance and they have limited access to the type of ppe needed to keep them safe. There is one category that i noticed that is not on there. And it's also about domestic workers you talking about caregivers so people who are maybe non licensed but they are people who are bathing feeding shopping and they're helping folks at home and so that is one of glaring absence for me because that's more people who are being exposed but generally speaking the people who are on the list of one b It's very expensive. And they're hitting those individuals who are the most likely to be exposed to the virus and your list highlights essential workers now. We got a lot of messages here at recent from those of you who are working in the community. My name is tom. And i'm calling from belmont. Highton mrs rachel from rogers park a moreau driver for a company of the services vending machines an essential worker and so is my partner on any given week. I have to go into five or six different nursing homes to fill the bed new machines in their businesses. I am worried about the vaccine out being equitable because some of our friends. They're both working from home and they actually someone that they know sent them like an invite code to log onto the government of health website. And this invite code actually work to get vaccinated and i'm wondering if that makes me eligible as a healthcare worker for the vaccine and if not we're puts me in my terms of eligibility that's kind of the point audra that there are people on the frontlines still waiting for the vaccine absolutely because you have two problems here. You have individuals who are now appearing on this one b-list eligible but you also have as you reported earlier a minimal amount of vaccines that are being made available per day for people to access so even among the people who are who have now in this phase one b. How do you apportion vaccines to those individuals when there's still limited about this available that's why we're obviously very dependent upon president biden and using the defense production act to wrap up the number of vaccines that are available but there is the secondary problem of even if you are on this list. How do you still get access to this. And what period of time. Alice your tracking project started back in april and it focuses on how the virus is impacting different populations. Your work was basically to fill in the gaps from what is a lack of comprehensive data from the federal government. Is that accurate. It is and the project overall started in march with the statelet level data about tests and cases hospitalizations and deaths at the part that i work on looks at the race. Ethnicity data that states and territories are reporting to better understand what's going on in illinois for some populations compared to the state overall and a year into this worse. We're not getting the federal data to really have a comprehensive sense of what's going on in the country and be able to compare how different states are reacting at as we get into the vaccine rollout. We are again really hoping that that we can get more. Comprehensive data to understand in this case are these nation efforts effective who is getting missed in the phases. Who is being impacted. Well by the choices that states has made sukagaw has language about having a lat next response. Illinois has language about needing to do the vaccination in an equitable manner and talks about these multigenerational institutional racism but with out the details that sort of point to what they plan to do to implement that or to work on that because neither the city nor cook county or the state or reporting see data about who is being vaccinated. We will not be able to see. If these efforts are matching the need are matching. The places where people are testing positive and dieting. Much higher rates. Audra let's talk more about the nuts and bolts of getting essential workers vaccinated. What support do these groups really need from the government and their employers to well they do need a lot of support One big thing is that we need to require. Employers to provide workers paid time off to obtain the vaccine and paid sick time in order to recuperate from any vaccine side effects. We've heard and i go to leave with that second shot. There have been people who've been having some adverse reactions and that might warrant them. You need to have some time off to recuperate. And so this is really important when you're talking about low wage. Essential workers and also temporary workers because temporary workers would not otherwise. Have this of protection. But we're talking about the public health crisis. So in this instance there need to be accommodations. That are made because it's not just about measuring their safety but ensuring the safety all those in the workplace. How will that be fun. Because i'm thinking some companies are just going to be like. That's not happening here. We don't have the money. Well that's a good question. There are going to be happy for larger employers. I mean that's to have to be economical decision. They make the fact of the matter is would you rather have people that are calling off. Because they are because that's going to be their bottom line even more and if somebody to look at too with the the administration with some of the new provisions and that have been made whether or not there might be for employers to help them with pay time off and then paid sick leave so that is definitely something to be explored but again i think the alternative is not a good one and we'll have a much deeper economic crisis. If we're talking about people who can not come to work because they are sick. I imagine messaging around free. Vaccines will be critical as well absolutely. There are a lot of individuals right now especially for those who may be uninsured who are wondering. Where would i get access to was asking. Where can i go. Do i go to my local pharmacy in a. How might this work so the messaging is going to be very important. Because there's a lot of confusion as you've been talking about over and over you know for the last few days about the knicks messaging. That's coming up. There individuals notwithstanding some of their concerns about the vaccine themself many are still willing to be vaccinated but do not know where to go. Do not know how sign up do not know what is available and this is causing a lot of concentration for them. Incarcerated populations in jail and prison workers are also on your list Now we did have a conversation. A few weeks back on on reset on that it was titled rethinking inmates place in line for the covid vaccine will be sure that share that once again on our twitter page at wbz reset. Alice what final recommendations do you have for the needs around data collection to cities and states. That are looking to ensure that equity is center. Here as we move forward in the rollout i think making the data available part of what we don't always know is what information the states and cities have and art making public and what information. They are not collecting. I think ensuring that this data is collected and then shared publicly that states and cities keep track of who's being vaccinated and wherever possible share sort of several factors at once race and age gender and race because so much of our so many people. What the work that they do is sorted by these other factors and so being a frontline worker often corresponds with with some of these other demographic groups and that they are consistent between what they say about the vaccination what they say about other cova data right. Now we're seeing many places us different categories for the vaccine than they're using for cases and death so it's it's impossible to be able to trace what happens as a result of vaccination efforts because the populations don't match up the category groups. Don't match up audra. i'll give you the last word here. Any final thoughts. Obviously this is. You mentioned this at the beginning of this. That things were changing rapidly. Information and getting proper information is so critical. There are many folks out there who are working as diligently as possible to make sure that we get the right information to communities. But i do think messaging is going to be important to be able to reach out to these these communities and letting them know Where they fall in terms of priority and making sure that we do not lose sight of the fact that these essential workers some including Not only our caregivers in our warehouse workers but now been talking about teachers. I'm a parent of a twelve year. Old too i understand and sympathise with teachers. Who are are scared to go back but we really really need to make sure that we are pushing for some continuity when it comes to the distribution of vaccines and clear information for communities so that we can allay some of these concerns in these fears. People can plan. Accordingly audra wilson. She's the president and ceo of the shriver center on poverty. Law and alex. Goldfarb the lead on the atlantic's cove racial data tracker. Thank you both for being with us today. Thank you so much for having us now. Let's bring in another voice to the conversation. Dr william parker. He's assistant professor of medicine and faculty physician at the university of chicago. He's also a medical ethicist specializing in the use of scarce medical resources. And he's been focused on equity. Dr parker hello. Hello thanks for having me. Of course now dr. How much vaccine has been administered so far in chicago. And should we be proud of where we're at right now. In your opinion as of this morning just refresh the website one hundred and forty thousand. Total doses administered one hundred seven. Are i dose is. That's a pretty solid number. You know the the problem is we. Don't actually know the nominators manning we received. The mayor tweeted out that supply a couple of weeks ago but there hasn't been in a more recent updates than that but it's probably somewhere in the order of close to two hundred and fifty thousand. I mean just sort of extrapolate out on piecing together what they've said publicly which put us that probably a little bit over. Fifty percent of our available supply administer On par with the state. Now you wrote an op. Ed in the chicago tribune That was inspired by your personal experience at you chicago where you weren't allowed to distribute the vaccine to those most in need. Can you explain that sort of widely acknowledged that early in the vaccine roll out. We had a problem where the eligibility criteria were too narrow There were sort of access apply for the number of patients who are eligible and other people who are eligible because it was restricted just healthcare workers and nursing home recipients and so hospitals work through their frontline personnel. The people were in direct patient contact relatively quickly and they had vaccine leftover because an unexpectedly high hesitancy rates among healthcare workers. In general. Also a lot of you know more backline people working from home in our hospital just felt like it wasn't right for them to take the vaccine because they're working from home remotely even though they're critical hospitals operation In our essential workers. They're not frontline right. Even though they fall into that category so there we had access vaccine and we wanted to start giving to patients. In at that time the city could we. Couldn't you mentioned the mayor you know we we've been hearing for mayor lori lightfoot and governor jay pritzker that we don't have enough right and but we haven't even distributed all the doses that we have so in fact. There's a significant amount of doses. That are still sitting in freezers. And i think that's a problem. I think the the goal should be to us pretty much all of our available supply. And it's you know sort of a wartime mentality right getting as many shots in the arms as quickly as possible and release possible to focusing on most vulnerable communities in our city. You know i think right now. The vaccine should be incredibly easy to obtain in the south southwest like needs have been hardest hit by the virus you know should be there and readily available. But it's not so we're officially in phase one b. How are you handling it now. Well now we're vaccinating patients who Have us outside dip code i. They're the front wine so we're trying to focus on our local community patients So they've had to had contact with the university of chicago health system in the last two years but then include any context of human people just went through the er and got a medical record number. That way are in that in that cashman. And we've done a whole week's worth of probably five eight thousand. We'll see what the numbers are later today but the response has been good so far. And i think it's also important that we mentioned especially for for listeners. At weill phase one b is starting people eligible under phase one eight like healthcare workers and nursing home residents. They are still eligible but a lot of them still haven't been vaccinated. What do you make of that doctor. I think it's a combination of people being Hesitant about maxine wanting to see make sure there are other side effects concerns about the speed of the development versus some some people eligible under one eight. Just like it's not their turn yet. They aren't exposed to patients on a daily basis. You know there are ministry for example who are included in phase. One eight by the cdc And they just don't think it's it's right for them to get the shots. So i think it's important for healthcare. Workers continue to have access to the vaccine but at the same time we have to distribute. Make sure that people nursing home residents and people over the age of sixty five in particular essential workers in the hardest hit communities across the city have as much access vaccine as possible because point. I thought this was interesting to you. You actually made A map of chicago inspired by a similar map of dc which it shows the area with the highest number of people dying from the virus and the areas which have received the most vaccines. Now those two areas. On the map there diametrically opposed. Can you talk more about that. Yeah it's disturbing but not unexpected. I guess You know. I think if you know anything about where the racial segregation in the city of chicago and you look at that map. It looks pretty familiar where you know pretty much today. Young white people have been the ones receiving the vaccine in the city. The city hasn't released racial data yet but That i'm pretty sure that's what it would show. Based on where they live and the death rate as you mentioned is inversely correlated with where the vaccine going so in woodland in south shore to communities south of hyde park. Where i work you know death rate somewhere around three hundred per one hundred thousand people. That's five times higher than up in lakeview so correspondingly. I think it should be five times easier. Did a vaccine woodland lake view. That's what you know that sort of effort we're going to need to make Terms of proportional allocation a vaccine to mitigate these disparities and save more lives. You know some people have sort of falsely created a tension between distributing vaccines quickly and saving. Lives you could use up all your backseat really quickly on the north side. But they merely as many lives right. That's the goal of the distribution is to get it into the area into into the patients that it will do the most good. You know the ethics of this is clear where the vaccine efforts need to be focused. It's just whether or not our leaders have the moral courage to to do it. Hasn't invited biden actually said when announcing that he was invoking the defense production act a few days ago. He said the rollout has been a dismal failure. So right along the lines of what you're saying to us now dr. There's also some debate around the current practice of saving vaccines in order to give two doses to people rather than one dose to as many people as possible. The concern being that this method could be considered unethical. What are your thoughts where where does where does the science fall in here. We don't really know how long the first dose would last without the second dose which is the booster. It does appear that. The first dose establishes immunity. But without giving the second dose. It's not clear how long that would last. So i think doing what they didn't know. Granted is controlled trial and giving everyone knows this makes sense but having aggressive strategy where you sort of first does first and then you know don't worry about the second does ask questions later about the second ghost and count on supply to increase And for more doses come down. The line makes the most sense. 'cause you wanna get that iot and then brought of the population. It's possible this is actually been kind of a group. In an academic paper in the annals internal medicines ran the numbers on this and you end up preventing a lot more infections. If you give ninety percent of your supply they'll supply is first doses and count on more doses coming down the road with an with measures like activating defense production act. I think we can have that. That will happen. So i really do feel like staying. Local governments should sort of not holding go since back in reserve and give its broad a population i vaccine. It's possible and you know count on morse supplied time for the second. Does dr william parker assistant professor of medicine and faculty physician at university of chicago. Dr parker thank you so much for joining us you for having me. And that's today's reset. Watch this feed because our series closing the gap continues throughout the week.

Ben is an expert in his field and will guide you toward truly living for yourself at work and in life while then take a minute and filling for tidbits about your life like long walks on the beach. I like the not a baker. Like the cook now. You know it's part of part of living. Life is just living life and having a little bit of fun. I don't think that's included in. My by was much as i'm a highly analytical thinker and i can get into my mind i had to spend many many years getting out of my mind getting into the present and trying to find you know be finding the value in the the due on the morning grass so to speak so i may throw in joke khiry there just because i'm trying i'm trying to be more present in life. I was not really listed in that or all the twists and turns and hardships and worse investments. That i've made so. I just can't wait to dive in and share a little bit more about that during well you know. I know a lot of listeners are also analytical and one of the challenges of an analytical person who said we can get caught up in our analysis paralysis or other types of things. And so i think you know. I'm looking forward to hearing your story and hearing your development in that area so now it's time to share your worst investment ever and since no one ever goes into their worst investment thinking it will be tell us a bit about the circumstances leading up to and then tell us your story so i had an interesting career path when i was younger. I'd say more interesting now. But i wouldn't have known that but i. I wanted to be a professional athlete. When i was younger so i never really thought that i'd be sitting behind a desk work in a nine to five. I also had a dad. That was kind of an entrepreneur. That would take me on home remodeling jobs. And i was a kid and so when i dove into the workforce after not becoming a professional athlete. I didn't really know what i wanted to do. And where we wanted to do it but ended up finding a couple of things. I was passionate about and got really involved in public health and public health policy and entrepreneurship in a variety of ways. But everything that. I tried to do really invest myself into ended up crumbling and so for this was around. Two thousand and tarragona grad school is working for the illinois department of public health and that job got cut because of funding. I won a cdc fellowship. I took taza nationwide task one the fellowship that got cancelled because of funding. I got offered to other jobs along with two and a half year period and those cut because of funding. So i was working every on job i could find. I ended up networking into healthcare administration. Somewhere that. I never thought that i ended up being but i was happy to have a job was creating direct real outcomes people creating positive social impact and i thought i thought that i would find something else but along the way i realized that i kind of ended up giving up my career little bit. I was very reactionary and less proactive. Every time i was barack i ended up losing out to sort of speak in my mind. I didn't feel this shift actually happened. So i ended up seven years in healthcare being promoted to an executive level position with the next step you know. Regional director eventually probably becoming a higher levels executive or ceo. In really unhappy. To the point where i would stop volunteering for work. I would do as little as possible to get by. I pulled back from the relationships. People that i was working with because i didn't want to invest more in something that i didn't like a lot of listeners. Might feel this if you're in a job and you feel stock and you feel unfulfilled and you feel like you're not doing what you should be doing is tends to happen. You start pulling back from everything you have to feet out the door. It was just makes everything worse because then you have nothing. Actually that you value that keeps you happy within the job itself and i was walking to work one day dreading it again and it wasn't just work itself that the dread is leaked into my personal relationships into my romantic relationships my family relationships that impacted my motivation in other areas of my life where i was kind of walking around this dark cloud over my head and then i i remember walking into work. One day minded I walked into work. I could walk into my job. There's a lot of really good things about the job. Itself actually was creating a positive social impact. Great people pretty positive leaders at special growth opportunities. I had my own personal leadership coach. It was wonderful and on paper but in my mind it was. It was walking into work in it looked up had the star cloud over my ad and i realized that everyone else that i was walking by dark lower their own. They all have. These sunken look sunken eyes. They were dragging their feet Everyone feel this way is this. Is this how we're supposed to work in. Live our life in it hit me. No it doesn't have to be this way. I was allowing this to happen for a variety of reasons and this is leading into the worst investment. Ever that i'd like to get you wanna pause for a second sailing. Should i go into it. You wait for a second. Do you want to go into more go. I think that's a great setup. Think everybody a lot of people feel that you know feeling in that all there is. Is this supposed to be doing. You know chide love that. And it was so strange. Because what i didn't share yet at this point was is when i was in that period of life where i'd get jobs and they get cancelled and it was kinda wandering making money working odd jobs. Someone came up to me. Because i was very into the personal development base. At that time. I was growing myself so for five six years. Prior to that i read everything i could find in the field of personal development. I put myself in uncomfortable situations. I took that analytical mind switched it off and just was present erin put myself really just really challenged myself to grow and be social and learn like really just the skill sets of interpersonal dynamics and this person dot means that i know what you're doing you're great at you need to meet my boss and i ended up getting hired to be a part time coach so that got me into the coaching realm and then that led to me actually applying for federal grant for public health professionals for free coaching. I ended up getting that from the government which is funny because the government can fund my full time positions and then. When i was working in healthcare they ended up selecting me for sixteen months leadership training so i also had coaching. You know around me in a way. It was very focused and personal development and knew all these things that i wasn't implementing in my professional career. And it's funny how we can do that. We can have these blind spots in our life where we give our actual accountability in power when we have it in others. All we need to do is to step back. Step out the bigger picture. And so what i finally realized was that i thought that my organization was supposed to give me meaning that it was supposed to give me jobs s. Actually there was supposed to make me happy. And i knew this wasn't the case in my relationships and you might relationship couldn't make me happy. I knew that achieving something couldn't make me happy it was the activate it was the values of receives from it. For some reason. I gave all my power away in my professional career to my employer and because of that that led to me being resentful pulling back for my relationships not volunteering for work and so when it hit me i stopped and i said wait. Hold on a second. It doesn't matter where. I work in matters how i work in how i think about my work. How can i change that. What do i wanna do in that led to some pretty amazing things in that point on and that kinda gets into my story of how i got to worry today. I wrote down a lot of things that i take away from that. And i'd just be curious to have you go through a summary of kind of the lessons you learn from that journey. It's me that we are all accountable for our own levels of job satisfaction and we all should feel empowered to be accountable. So that means that. When i walk into the office or when i open my computer to start my workday if i'm thinking negatively about my job of course going to have a negative experience so the first part is what's my mindset. What meaning do i perceive from my work. And what value do i do. I take from it. Because if i'm going in and thinking that it's worthless it's going to be worthless i don't know about you but when i reflect back on my career what i thought i was going to do. Isn't what i'm doing. Even if i was intentional towards it because you end up meeting people you develop certain skills in those lead to something else so you can learn. You're really good at something. Learned that you don't like something so if you're going into each and every single day without the intention to take something from it you're gonna take nothing and if anything you made us take negativity which ends up just draining other areas of your life as well So it's this idea of showing up developing career capital and then. We haven't even gotten to crafting your work towards what you actually want it to be. But i think and i think that's another component we can get into but i think the first ones are this idea. That you're responsible and accountable. You should feel empowered to change your job to what you needed to be. Need to show up to make the most of it. I'm going to summarize some of the things. I take away from that. In just that point you made ultimately. That's that's what a good boss wants out of you to you. Know good boss wants you to come to you know. Look i'm not that great in this. But i see this other opportunity. I think i can really make an impact in this area and most bosses are like they look at people and then going up. You'd never gonna come out with any idea. Yeah he just going to sit there and be unhappy. You know and i'm just going to let them do that because you know why. Should i invest anytime if you don't invest anytime and so you know it's just like downward spiral if you're in that situation. Some of the things that i wrote down that just want to go through is a great book. I read called the power of now by eker. Tony and the main thing i got out of it was a mantra that i say that my best friend deal says a lot and i say i am not my thoughts. I am not my thoughts. I am not my thoughts. I am not my thoughts. And i was also thinking as you were talking. I am not my work. I am not my work. I am not my work that you know. How do we separate ourselves from them. The second thing i was thinking about is i wrote down. Life is simple if life gets complicated. Stop you know. Life is simple. Life is not meant to be complicated if somebody's complicating things. If you're complicating things to stop and make it simple. The other thing i was thinking about is that it's interesting. You know you talked about how you were doing all the personal development stuff but yet you know you're unhappy and for a lot of people and i'll share my own personal experience you know. I had experience when i was younger with drug addiction. And that led me into a twelve step program and in the program they had all the you know. Do these steps and you're gonna be free of this addiction and what i found is obviously young. Guys like yeah. I'm digging into this. So i really focused on those twelve steps and i worked hard and man my life just open up and opened up and then i saw these people. That was still. They've been sober or clean for wine and they're still kind of unhappy. And then i realized that you know what you get out of something is what you put into it. And so sometimes people are you know they want to be better and better at personal development and all that stuff in the no the knowledge of it. But there's a great statement in the twelve step program says if your pain painstaking at this stage of recovery. You'll be amazed before you're halfway through. And i love that word painstaking. If you if you look at it you can say taking pain. Are you going through some pain to build real personal development. And once you hit a bottom you know like you've described. Then it it motivates you to think crap. I think i'm really going to have to really apply these things. Not just talk about him. I got a lot of other things. I've written down but i think those are the main things anything you'd add to that. And if so i think it's important to note that a lotta times people feel this way and so the solution is to accept that they are in the wrong job and just skate by and usually the other one is to leave the job into another job and perpetuate the cycle in. Maybe they'll get lucky and find a job that does align with their values and does give them a bit of happiness and does surround him with people they enjoy working with and is the right type of work at the right type of time. It does happen for some people. But if i'm talking to someone that's high achiever eventually end up you're to end up in the same place if you don't internalize some of these concepts that you are not a product of the organization in the work like you said i am not the work but you can basically make the work of product of you and i think that's something we need to shift our mindset towards which is you can choose the type of work that you wanna do. You can choose how you perceive the work. That's in front of you. You can choose you interact with on a daily basis and you can spend the time getting clarity in what you want to actually learn achieve at work so that you are making progress towards the things you care about all this really started from this idea of m. i doing my purpose at in my professional life. And i think this is. We haven't talked about purpose yet. But it's this. I think we very defined purpose in in a way that doesn't serve us. We define it as something that has to be awful feeling we define it as something we can achieve define it as something that is greater than us in all those definitions don't actually lead to anything productive for us especially in the in our careers. You know it's interesting to your website is called live for yourself consulting dot com and the idea that you're explaining is how you went through the process of not really living for yourself. Just doing what you thought was the right thing to do. But that you didn't live yourself so i think it's really valuable to think about. You know what you can bring people who are stuck in that situation for people who are listening that we'd like to get in touch with you. I live for yourself. Consulting dot com. They can also go to the show notes and click on that and learn more. So let me ask you based on what you learned from this story and what you continue to learn what one action one action. Would you recommend our listeners. Take to voice suffering the same fate. Spend some time make a list make three categories and basically one of them is. What's the work i love to do. The other categories. Who are the people. I love to work with the other. Categories what impact. What positive do i see from the work that i do on a daily basis in every single day. Try to nudge your job a little bit more towards one of these categories and i promise you if you do that you are going to naturally evolve in your career in a positive way beautiful you know. I have a personal story about that. When i came to thailand. I worked in the world of finance. I eventually in two thousand roughly. I ran into a time that we started working together. And we've worked together two thousand so twenty one years and we just fit together in our strengths and weaknesses and we do research and we start our own company eventually at the end of that career in investment banking and we've had our ups and downs and when we had our downs i just said to him. Look there's nothing more than i wanna do. Then right research and do research. I love that and you love that. And there's nobody else that i want to work for and work with for the rest of my career than you and the team that we build so there is no plan b. I don't want to go back to anything else. Except i wanna keep making the most out of what we've got and that really cemented our relationship and trust but also you know really got us excited about you know. Yeah business may not be. The best may not be the biggest. But we're doing what we like with the people that we like to do things with and that's what you've just shared so valuable valuable stuff. It's a beautiful story in. It's it's frustrating that so many people don't feel that they have permission to make that decision for themselves and we all have the permission to make every decision for ourselves. Yeah that's I have another story about that. My ex girlfriend was struggling with the fact that she'd been abandoned by her mother and her father and it really affected our relationship and she went to see a therapist in when she came out of that therapy she was a changed woman for life. One therapy session and she was completely james. It was shocking and amazing and all that that therapist did because my ex girlfriend was ready. She was ready to make a change and she started to know that the problem was abandonment. And that psychiatrist or psychologist basically said imagine the most comfortable place in your life and she said all my sofa and she said okay. Imagine you're sitting on yourself right now. Feel that comfort where you're at and then the therapists basically took a baby a little doll a baby doll. Whatever chat in the room and she put it across the room and she said that's you sitting on the steps at your school when you were nine and your mother said she was gonna come and pick you up and spend the weekend with you and she never showed up and that was the most painful moment for her where she realized truly was being abandoned by her parents and she said get up by that time she's sobbing. I wasn't in the room. And she's telling me exactly what. By that time she sobbing and then the therapists said go. Pick up that doll. Go pick yourself up. You are now picked up and you have to move on from this and so she was absolutely sobbing and she cried for another four hours after that and the next day she woke up it was like something was lifted from her. So for those people that have been hurt in so many different ways and struggling. I think your story to me then is the idea that you're responsible. You know you're accountable. Pick yourself up and we all have those stories especially related to work. We just don't pay him any attention in. Why don't you feel like you can ask something of your boss. How you define leadership. I don't you feel like you can make a decision with what we work on. You know where do you feel limited however you define what a job is in your past really important questions. Answer next question and it is the last question. What's your number one goal for the next twelve months. I would love to finish my next book so i. That's my goal right now. i'm writing. I think we all have evolutions at our fractional life when we get to certain points for were like okay. Now i am going to honor it through something content development and i've written some a workbook in the past and the pocket book in the past and now it's finally the live for yourself. Book is going to come out with a different title. I don't wanna share that yet. But it's going to be a compilation of stories. Basically what we're talking about today that relate to the commandments that i've learned that relates living for yourself excellent and for the listeners. Out there that wanna get in touch with you. They can go to the show notes or is there any other way. That's the best way for them to get in touch with you. Have lunch at the diner down the street noon coming. You can totally just find me on lincoln. Dr benjamin raiders. Send me a message. Connect with me. Let me know that you heard me from this show and left. I have a conversation with you and keep going all right listeners. There you have it another story of loss to keep you winning. My number one goal for the next twelve months is to help you my listener reduce risk and increase return in your life to achieve this. I've created our community at my worst investment. Ever dot com. I'll see you there as we conclude. Then i want to thank you again for coming on the show and on behalf of a stotts academy i hereby award you alumni status returning your worst investment. Ever into your best teaching moment. Do you have any parting words for the audience. We haven't really touched on this but a lot of times. We are striving with work. Were unhappy with work. Because we're trying to find our purpose and get fulfilled in. I think achieve our progress. And i think we we forget that. Do things really important about rx is one. It's unlimited infinite. there's no way to achieve it. It's actually that's great because it means the never ending source of motivation. Which is what we want. The other one is that were greater than it. That your purpose because you defined it that way so you're ultimately greater than it so we are putting something on a pedestal that we've actually that we're actually the ghana and that can create some strange actions on our pardon strange beliefs so if we can raise above it in realize greater than it. We realized that life is more important than well. That's a wrap on another great story to help us. Create grow and protect our wealth in our health. Fellow risk takers. This is your worst. Podcast hosts andrew stotz saying. I'll see you on the upside.

Raffled than the violence is never to handle the problems and quoted mr rogers quote when he see something scary in the news. Look for helpers. I've always been very up front about things and so when something goes down. I try to just be honest with kids when i talk to them and trying to be sensitive trying to be aware of the parents have different ways of what they want their kids exposed to but i try to teach it as a life. Lesson watching an assault on the capital is but for nicole frazier and other social studies teachers in their department. The pro-trump mob was predictable. It was overwhelming As it's going on part of it kind of like of course this is what's happening. This is what they've been saying. The whole time to government and history jefferson high school in rockford along with lucas clovinger. Our first reaction were sitting there watching it. It's going to be that whole. What do we do tomorrow like. We're going to bring this up. What are we going to talk about. Plunger was in the middle of teaching a unit about the civil war which provided a context of the events. He could have never found them not to discuss as a first year teacher. He pulled up the picture of a man walking the halls of congress holding a confederate flag. Because i think we're mostly shocked in anything that they never even thought about it. That the confederates never made it into dc with that flag but it was able to just stroll into the building yesterday lessons on the election of eighteen hundred the first peaceful transfer of power and the war of eighteen twelve violent mob breach the capital suddenly take on new relevant urgency. Mckellen i got home from work on wednesday and didn't think it was real. I didn't like like some state news or something. He's a senior jefferson high school. He thinks political violence in america like this could be more common as he gets older to be honest. I'm gonna impact a lot of young people. We're gonna see like five hundred. They're they're gonna see more normally.

And what the pro-trump extremists did at the capitol. Shell step back and explain that only. Why congress was there but also how baseless claims of election fraud reside in court and also became another loss on media literacy to really important for us to understand that when they're reading something the language that's being chosen as being chosen for a reason and trying to get you to understand or trying to reach a certain group of people. Another one of their social studies colleagues dove deeper into the role of white supremacy and domestic terrorism in the days events between the pandemic and the attempted siege of the center of american democracy. Educators have had to figure out how to explain unprecedented events more than they ever imagined over the past year but in two thousand twenty one in the age of social media. Students are going to hear about it. Teachers want to be there to help them process. What's going on off the helpers. I'm peter muslim. The most recent farm bill equalised him production nationwide but left individual states in charge of the oversight as the crop continues to roll out across the midwest. Some states are seeing more success than others and as her public. Media's dina cronin reports farmers generally remain optimistic about his future zero point three percent hence magic number. That's the level of tetrahydrocannabinol or thc the distinguishes hemp from marijuana and one of the few things the federal government regulates j. kedah didn't quite make the cut. We were the first crop in iowa to test hot we. We were more than twice the limit of thc in our plants. He and his colleagues who run for 'em farm in southeast iowa had no other choice we have to mow everything down in berta keta says. Growing hemp is hard work unlike row crops. Most things have to be done by hand. I've a newborn baby. So i spent all summer so the playing with her as weeding fields. You know we were filthy dirty and sweaty and it sucked the news hot as miserable and after all that like that's cool just gone on fire. Keta is in the only one about thirteen percent of iowa's ham crop came in above the legal. Thc threshold in missouri. It was about nine percent that's largely because for many states like iowa and missouri. This was the first year of legal hemp production. Anytime you start something up. I think you have some highs and some lows and some things you didn't see coming at you. Robin prisoner overseas the hemp program for iowa department of agriculture. She says there have been a whole host of challenges for farmers this year including the amount of sheer manual labor. You know having a tomato garden. That's five acres or however big compared to just your little kind of more typical garden in the backyard producers across the midwest struggled with other issues in the field this year like pests and weeds. But it didn't get much easier. Once the hemp was harvested. Most hemp grown in the midwest is for cbd or dial which is the non psychoactive ingredient found in the cannabis plant extracting. The cd requires a processor but because the industry is still so new. There's a severe lack of licensed processors across the region. We have now licensed three hundred and sixty four ham processors for what is at this exact moment of time. Exact eight hundred licensed hemp growers. David aikman manages the division of cannabis regulation at the illinois department of ag. He says the gap between growers and processors has narrowed slightly this year but some more experienced. I have figured out a workaround by acquiring their own processing licenses farmers like andy houston. Who's been growing hemp in illinois for three years. Now the cbd. Our products came off of our farm. We know exactly where it's been. We know exactly what how was raised because he has dual licenses. Houston can grow the hemp extract the oil himself and then sell different infused products on site. It's a model. That's worked well for him and along with a great growing season this year. Houston says he's optimistic about future in the state of the gonna be around. I mean it's just it works to the not to be around. not only. Does the product work well in terms of relieving aches and pains houston says hemp also loves the mid western climate not to mention the cd market continues to grow david. Lake men at illinois department of ag says lookout corn soybeans. I think within the next five to ten years hemp will be in terms of the dollar amounts one of the top three agricultural exports of the state of illinois. He says hams medical and industrial potential. Plus the ingenuity of growers means the crops. Future is bright dana. Cronin rbis public media. Vaccinations for covid nineteen or underway in illinois. But not everyone is to take the shot. A recent virtual townhall meeting answered questions and tackled some concerns for the black community. Yvonne boost has more make an plane. What black america needs to know about covid. Nineteen vaccines was moderated by health experts. They f- leaders in several other organizations. The event was hosted by the black coalition against kobe. Nineteen some may wonder why a conversation was needed specifically for the black community according to centers for disease control and prevention data. Kobe nineteen hospitalizes blacks at about four times. The rate of white non hispanics death rates are almost three times greater. A recent press release indicates that the average age of weistein of colbert. Nineteen eighty-one for blacks is seventy two in hispanic sixty eight. The cdc recommends that individuals ages seventy five or older receive. The vaccine i but with the disparity of deaths in the black and brown communities the illinois department of public health and governor jay pritzker have lord the age to sixty five mark. Morio is the president and ceo of the national urban league. He he says one of his main concerns is how the vaccine is distributed but he also has other apprehensions various. A lot of information and lack of information about the vaccine about the process used to develop the vaccine about the process. Generally use to develop medicines and therapies in the united states. Morale says there are questions about whether the creation of the vaccine was rushed. He also suggests that some black people aren't trusting it because of the past. He calls this the goethe of tuskegee. The tuskegee experiment was a syphilis. Study where black men were told. They were being treated for the disease but instead they were giving placebos. Many of them passed away from the disease or suffered other complications. Some members of the black community are questioning was end. A vaccine dr kismet mecca. Corbett is a viral immunologist at the national institutes of health. She was a key player in the development of the vaccine corporate advises that the pfizer and moderna vaccines are. Both messenger are any vaccines. She explains that. these are made. Up of lipid nanoparticles which is a ball of fat wrapped around. The messenger are a there are no tracer devices. There are no microchips or anything of that. Nature then are being delivered with this vaccine. Corbett addresses the worry. The thumb have about how quickly the virus was developed. She suggests that the public is only seen the last ten or eleven months of work. But the preclinical science that drove this vaccine development extends even beyond my tenure at the national institutes of health even up to ten to fifteen years starting in the days of the sars corona vars. Dr anthony fauci also joined the forum. He asked a question about the mutation of the virus and confirmed that the vaccine is still effective against it. He reiterated that blacks continue to be disproportionately impacted by the virus. And that's why two things need to take place one hundred here in the public health measures that we doubled down and to when the vaccine become available to the particular people in the different subgroups that you make sure you get vaccinated. Thao she says there is light at the end of the tunnel and as more people get vaccinated. He says we'll get closer to going back to normal. But until then he explains people will still need to wear a mask. He'd social distancing and wash their hands. I'm jawuan booze about ten thousand workers across more than a dozen illinois. Hospitals run by healthcare have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine christine. Herman checked in with. Osf's vice president of pharmacy. Sandy alverson to learn how hospital systems are now working to get the vaccine out to the broader public in some places. We're going to the health department location because it might be civic center it might be you know. A community center And assisting with the vaccination process and then the state is responsible for accounting for the doses and managing the doses and others. Were still trying to figure out what that's going to look like. It's complicated and you know you wanna make sure that you can be the best steward of the doses that we get because they're not easy to come by you know there's still sluggishness within the supply chain both from visor. Moderna you just gotta keep working through the process. I understand from the champaign urbana public health department. They're saying that the doses they get. They're them out as quickly as they can. So the limiting factor at least in champaign county area is the number of doses are actually receiving from the federal government. What other factors are keeping this out from happening more quickly. So there's a couple of factors one is you know the cdc or the federal government definitely decides how many doses each state gets and then there has to be a division of doses within each community one of the things that illinois chose to do with the pfizer vaccine in particular. Because of the way it comes it's only nine hundred seventy five dose increments. They chose to ship to all the jurisdictions for the most part thaad so that they could separate that out and get to a reasonable quantity. That's going to meet the community's needs albeit that you know we might have received vaccine that's about two percent of our population. I mean it's really low and that's not much different than many of the other states. So the goal really is to get as much vaccine administered without wasting not something. I'm really proud. Osf healthcare has really accomplished. We have very minimal waste. I mean we're finding arms you know for the doses that we get or we've coordinated with the various health departments in our communities to see if we can transfer it to be able to use the vaccine and all of that requires a lot of coordination. I wonder if you could address something that i feel like might be on people's minds once the vaccine is open to someone sixty five and older even within that age group. There are probably some people who need it more than others if they have certain health conditions or other risk factors or if they're more of frontline worker versus some who works from home. I'm curious if you could share your thoughts on how you would advise people to make the decision of when. I am eligible for vaccine. Should i rush to get it or should i let other people go i share. I like it that to the conversation. I had with my parents so my mom and dad are very different in terms of their overall health. One of them has more health conditions. And i really encourage them like you've got to be closer to quote unquote first in line. And she may not be. I i in line whereas that if they had to choose between the two of them i would tell them to choose one over the other. It's one thing to do that in your immediate family group. It becomes a lot harder. When you're talking about a neighborhood or a county and so i think just sharing the facts explaining the process as best as we can as we continue to learn more about you know how many doses that we can get will help but it's probably not going to be perfect and it's trying to answer. All the questions is timely. As we can. I do still refer a lot of people to the illinois department of public health. Faq's because those are really useful and they put some context. There's not clear timelines but it definitely helps people understand what's going on that cd salvors in the vice president of pharmacy operations for health care and she spoke with christine herman Still more ahead on state wide and a reminder you can find links store stories just go to statewide show dot com stay with us this statewide. I'm shawn crawford jessica. Ramos lead efforts to produce a report from the education advocacy group advance illinois. That report was based on focus groups including one hundred twenty students parents and caregivers and they came up with recommendations on how the state should handle recovery. From the pandemic marine mckinney. Spoke with her about the efforts. The problems from covid nineteen for students and families. What were the most severe when we first went into this. This idea of doing focus across the state. We wanted to really just understand how education was going and as we were preparing our question and the direction that we wanted to go in. I quickly realized that we couldn't get focused on the educational experiences of students. They need to focus on once. Students and families were experiencing before even asking about how education and was going and how they were experiencing schooling and their engagement with his you know the disruption that happened to their learn. We first started with questions. How their experiences overall with kobe and not one area where that communities are really struggling with accessing childcare and that has trickled down into how students engaging with their education how parents are according their children so we heard stories from parents. That are you know both identify the central workers where they are finding themselves a with no access to childcare because childcare providers are either not in business or have made it difficult decision not to take their children because they're putting themselves at a higher risk you know we heard stories from know one parent where One parent is a firefighter. The parents work in a hospital and the provider made a choice not to bring them in because of the high risk and other situation counter just wasn't available in their communities and parents were finding themselves having to take their children to work in order to make sure that they were learning we heard stories about how t like parents were getting phone calls from their teachers. Saying you know your child isn't engaging today where are you. Where is he where is she. And you know it's harder to control that when you're not with your your child at the time. And then when we started to ask them how they were feeling overall. We learned very way that there are a lot of challenges that and children and students are experiencing that really their social emotional and mental wellness. Students are feeling very isolated and disconnected from their peers from other educators. You know especially our students that are engaging schooling remote we In many situation our students express that they haven't seen any other classmates since the start of the school year because when they tune into their home easter or their class meetings. it's Shadow walks that they see as opposed to you know the videos that we see in two meetings when people choose to turn their videos on And that that comes back to some decisions at school district company in order to ensure equity where they don't require students attend their teachers haven't met their students all year and and they have to imagine what their their students might look like giving that reality. And then on the academic front we're seeing some inequities and the rigor of the core the coursework students are engaging in The reality is as much as we would like to hope Engaging in class remotely is very different especially in a world where our educators were asked to pick With no choice because we're living through a pandemic but you pissy remote learning and to a different structure of earning law even in person because we have to ensure safety of the students with all happening and so you educational experiences of our students have drastically and it's been a major adjustment for them and are educators alike in terms of recommendations. And what do worst did. Some of those standout is more important. Absolutely you know one of the main issues that we saw was the impacts that resource inequity is having our students and our families across the state and as we think about the recommendations moving forward. We think it's extremely important to ensure that were passed towards ensuring that our school district and our communities have resources. They need to support student. We know that the pandemic has not impacted students equally because there was inequities in our system that had existed even pirates with end up being this is only been exacerbating that and so as we think about the path to recovery. We need to make sure that we invest in the resources needed that with orange resources we target some of those supports to ensure that students are supportive socially and emotional and that we are closing those gaps in access. What were some examples of the inequities. I imagine The disparity in access to technology. Yeah absolutely. I was one of the issues that we saw In in some situations we heard stories about some students having to Ask a family member to drive them to a local church. A local restaurant that had my accent in order for them to be able to work on their remote learning. We heard stories about how you know. The funding disparities reality is that you know even the remote learning setting and felt differently by different students in different areas that were see depending on the infrastructure is that were in place before that and that all comes back to resource equity in funding. Actually that we as an organization highly highly value prioritize in our work And you know. We saw the benefits of the investment of You know the evidence based funding formula be constant district. We're able to pivot almost immediately. Provide every student with a laptop provide students with the support where needed and some districts is by hers are still struggling to connect with students New to the broadband access the inequity around that and then another one of the inequities We heard The inequitable access to rigorous and engaging coursework we heard stories from students You know both The end of students that are participating in ap coursework and i the coursework and then students that are participating in course work in a way that is just What we would consider like quote unquote regular classes and that experience is very different. students in the teesside felt like they had an experience too much disruption and they had a course map that they have to follow because there was a test at the end of the year that they have to take you know in order to get that course for college and in our classes and our students that participated that were in regular classes You know we had an example. One student share that they were in spanish class. remotely where they hadn't even focus vanish. Yeah because they're not able to engage in that dialogue that they what if they were embarrassed in the report talked a little about what is getting lost in learning because of the covid situation. Is there a way or ways that schools can do their jobs once covid nineteen subsides and we get back to normal one of the things that will be required a part of the recovery and the rebuilding from this is that we need to ensure that their state guidance and support and thinking about how school districts navigates the time that comes back to that. The reality is that we have over eight hundred fifty district our state and if we work on eight hundred fifty solution then we are going to continue to inequities play out. We are going to continue to be you know. The impact students follow into the long term in the way that they're able to persist and continue towards college or secondary You know austin that they choose And if we don't you know provide some white guidance and state wide support in the form of resources and infrastructures to ensure that the impacts are minimized I think that that story for us can look very different. You know that our students You know as i mentioned or not feeling the impact equally all across the state you know. We are seeing stories where some children are benefiting participating pods and some students are going to school in person and there are some that have been attending remote goal from the very beginning and health health with a very different across the state. Some parents have the access to support their students and the ability to do that. And some don't and we cannot put the blame on her parents. But you know we think about the recovery. We need to think about how we have. The state have role in ensuring that our students are supported and their families are supported the process of recovering building. That's jessica ramos. A link to that report about teaching during the pandemic in what should happen next is at our website. Statewide show dot com. Many parents have been getting a rare peek at how their kids behave or don't in class families have experienced challenges with remote learning but a few have experienced some unexpected fund. Suzanne has some of their stories. This is my first grade sons remote music class. he's putting on quite a performance lip synching instead of singing along. You're just like moving your mouth. Why do you do that. I don't like the plan so she thinks i'm singing or whatever flight she sees that you're not seeing maybe all her feeling or in trouble. My son augie.

The reverend captain kick ass joining me tonight because mountaineer and melanie. We're gonna talk about some fun things and some not so fun. Things first up this evening is well now that generally speaking when the government sort of takes over thing it doesn't do a bang-up job generally makes things worse. We've got a couple of different things here. That both indicates the government in one shape or another one form or another will. Likely ruin your credit because that's what it does. It's like the the midas touch except the opposite of that with the opposite of the midas touch. Touch wasn't really good. If you well okay. But so you're talking about sort of the anti midas touch everything to feces right. Yeah turns everything to crap. Whatever whatever that touches that's generally lists sidamo touch government the montezuma touch say damn yeah there got perhaps the montezuma's revenge. Yes yes So melanie actually brought this. One in this is From reality circuit dot com and the headline here reads i f. That's the international monetary fund. Not the international mer efforts as i like to call the imf calls for credit score to be tied to your internet. Search history now. Just take a second think about that. Why would this even be an idea. I don't know aren't we skipping a couple of steps here like first off. When did the imf decide to start making the calls on our credit score. Shouldn't shouldn't include be sitting there watching the federal reserve die being like i'm next in line Mother that's actually the case. Well i mean there's they're setting themselves up for it. I mean there's a pretty good argument for it. Because i mean between the imf in the bank of international settlement. That's been pretty much the first world court so given that The us dollar is about to completely collapse. And with the rest of the world economy It's pretty much going to go to those guys. You still got china and rushing ten with They still answer to the bank of international settlement. But i still don't understand like you know who sits around and goes. I've got an idea. Let's type people's credit to their internet. Search history like how does that make any logical sense. Plenty of logical sense. Just kinda remember that they're evil. Yeah okay even if you're evil. How does credit to your search history make financial sense for evil people but kyw okay so because they're in charge of printing money which is the most powerful power you can have. It's very opie power. Play a table games. Whatever they're called. So you're you're in charge of who gets resources. Basically because now all the corporations the banks who sell houses and the fords and show. I don't know. I can't think of people's names right now. The car companies any asset. You would need to buy knows that you can get approved for this credit. So they're not going to charge a price that you could reasonably paying cash so the bank can now be in charge of who gets cars and houses and probably some other things and if you google things they don't like we'll now you just don't get the bike are right. I mean you have to look at this from the perspective of a power addict so okay. The last thing that i want is for. You know if i'm power. Attic is for people who might oppose my gaining more power to have any increase of power whatsoever. Like you might get from. Say your own home being able to get a car things like that. I'm just had a censoring affect. What usually happens with this type of thing is there. They announced they're going to do something and at first it's just outrageous idea and then it filters through all their organizations and becomes less and less and less outrageous idea to the masses and then they'll do it ten or twenty years later right after they were not gonna do this next week right right but even something like this still is censoring effects because there are people who care a lot more than me. Christening now are now being like well. If i looked this up by house and fifteen years right right i mean. Consider right now. There are people going online to go to freetalklive dot. Now if you know for a fact that that is going to impact your credit you're going to think twice about doing it. Because i mean obviously we are not helpful to those in power. Oh it's much more useful if they don't tell you what's going to impact your credit which is kind of a case right now. We you have a vague idea that like paying your bills as good and being laid as bad but something like internet search history. You can vega a whole lot and so people are just gonna stay away away from that line because they don't know what the rules actually are and it's not like they're going to get published. Well let's take a look and what the article says in a blog post courtesy of the international monetary fund. Imf researchers are not boot. Peter hoffman luke laban and live retina ski called for internet search history to be tied to credit score presenting their findings from a paper they wrote the researchers argue that by using nonfinancial data specifically the history of online searches in purchases. We can solve the problem of certain kinds of people not having enough hard data income employment time assets and debts available the only people that that would apply to with no fault of their own as young people. Three people with no credit because they've never been because if you are you know my age and you have issues with employment history or income. That's your own fault. If you're eighteen you were like there's nothing you can't change the fact that you're eighteen so the only group that applies to is young people and so if that's really your concern which it's not. There's two options there a skew the scoring system to awards not skew it towards but adjust for age under a certain age. At least that you know people under twenty five twenty three wherever you want to draw that line. Then don't count that for them or okay. Well have some other way to prove your even even something as disturbing as okay. Well if you're under twenty three and you don't pass the regular means you can take a personality tests show that you're the kind of person to pay your bills on the extreme end. Unless extreme ends some other way to prove responsibility what. I knew most twenty year old. Aren't buying houses anyways. What i know at least in the. Us they about the credit system is that there are lenders. Who will take a risk on you if you have no credit or even bad credit but at a premium right so if you have no credit score or a poor credit score there are folks out there who may take risks on you but your interest rate is going to be high or you're going to have to come up with the bigger down payment whether it's a car house whatever it is before they not buying houses that young but you do need a car. You kind of need a car on day one. It's not really an option. But right and so you know. The market already sort of provides for people like that right anybody who's not paying any attention to their credit or otherwise has bad credit. They've got themselves into over. will position. as far as credit is concerned. The market sort of provides avenues for them so the authors of this piece. And they're really concerned that you think that they would not put medical debts or at least so you can occur a lot larger medical that even if you have insurance well so i still don't understand how it makes sense to it to your internet searches. Grammy and what websites. I frequent book march. You know what my how do they even know. It's just me not people in my household searches. You got a camera on your well. I mean on a phone.

Six three two eight three six one six. Oh is the phone number in the studio tonight. It is myself. The captain. Biko's mountaineer and melanie. And we just certif- started digging into you. This article from reality circuit dot com. The headline reads the imf. That's the international. Monetary fund calls for credit score to be tied to internet search history and most of our discussion was about me just going. I don't understand why they would wanna tie it to internet search history and we can talk more about that but first let's go to scott. Who's calling from florida scott. You're on free talk. Live good evening. Captain mounts and hope. You're having a happy valentine's day You know i'm so. Disgusted with america is I'll try to make my feelings concise and just to the point steph comrades or comrade. Sorry about that scott. You can't say radio. I think he might have been saying bolshevik I'm not gonna fight the fcc on that is fair. I heard bs the the whole you know pronounced version of that. So yeah my apologies if you were not saying that but that's what it sounded like to me so Maybe try another day. Scott yeah mostly because he ended with comrades before the We finished so i anyway. Yeah this is a radio shiism. this is not An internet podcast. Only we do have of course podcast format we don't really have rules. But the fcc does and they have drones and tanks so they do and so we must unfortunately dumped callers who used the words at the fcc deems are inappropriate for people even though in my opinion. There's no physical evidence that using those words if ever caused any harm outside of which is weird. 'cause the fed's will let us sit here and talk about how we think we should overthrow them. But they won't let us say this word right. Yeah yeah or any of the seven words. That george carlin made famous. We could actively sit here and talk about what we need to do to the members of the fcc. That's fine but using those no no words. What do you think you are grownups. So continuing on with this article from reality circuit dot com the authors of the peace claim that this move is necessary innovation and by this move they mean. The imf tying score to your internet search history. They claim that this move is necessary. In order to compete with the rise of corporate crypto currencies such as the one in development by facebook who hope to launch next year while facebook is a monopoly that has engaged in political censorship. their power pales in comparison to that of the imf. The international monetary fund is a veritable superpower with ties to the world bank and they oversee the entire global economy. I don't think. Facebook crypto is going to be very crypto. So you still have all that data. Yeah well isn't facebook in bed with government anyway providing data that just recently they just sort of rolled over and gave the feds a bunch of data because the feds were like. Hey can we have it. They're like sure. It is unconfirmed whether or not facebook actually is effectively. Part of the fed's google is but i which also means so there for its serious youtube right But if it's not it's close. Yeah i mean. I know one thing for a share from a user perspective. Google certainly ruined youtube. Youtube was great. It was fantastic. It was a great platform if you made some sort of a funny video and it went viral. If you went to the front page of youtube why that bastard was on the front page and now you go to the front page. If you just sign out of google completely and just go to youtube dot com and look at the front page. It's all mainstream crap all it's all super overproduced. It's done by people with money. If you wanna find the funny video that some lady made you know in her basement last tuesday. that's the internet by storm. Why you to already have the link so noodles certainly ruined that other things so the article continues. It should go without saying that giving this organization the power to track. Everyone's search history can lead to some dark ramifications. Well who would against that. With private banks notably j. p. morgan and chase bank already kicking conservatives of their services one can only imagine how much this would escalate with the imf tracking. Everyone search history or there has been bipartisan. Opposition to the chinese social credit system in congress the distinctions between that system and what the imf is pushing remains ill defined. It's interesting because i. When i first heard about the chinese you know social credit score system. I predicted coming soon to the united states. It's just gonna take some other flavors. Some other form that makes people think it's not being mandated and one of the things that i'd like to point out about this. Is that okay so right now. This is in the context of what would your credit score be but we are moving into a central bank digital currency era. Yes and there will almost certainly be a universal basic income along with it so this is going to be not just like ten. We extend you credit. But do you get to access your account when they're there or employers now if you go apply for a job at a fast food restaurant this is not gonna happen but there are employers if once you get you know once you work your way up a little bit employers check your credit history so otherwise they would need to kind of like even if you're not gonna ever have like okay. Yeah i'm glad someone just like gave you assets up front but to get jobs you kind of need this kind of thing. Well and having had that happen occur. I have credit monitoring in place and i you know the the last job that i obtained. Certainly the company did run my credit score now. May it was great. It wasn't horrible. That was enough to get me the job. But i wonder what would have happened. I had my credit score lower. Would i depends on what type of job so like. Some places are just looking for like okay. It's not to fifty are different organizations. Use different low numbers. It's like okay. What are some places that are looking for. It has to be decent and places for well he doesn't have three repose on ferrari because he's buying stuff he can't afford right so sometimes it's at really low barrier but they're looking for a gauge of trust and responsibility. I understand why they would look where. Why would they would want to look at that. But when it comes to search history. I'm sorry banks have no business knowing. Let my guard anything wrong. You don't have anything to hide. Isn't that the old adage How about this if they would like suceed my search history. I wanna see this team's fair right. I'd like to know where all of you that that's right. I and continued to know over. Release your emails while your phones. They've walked into like other talk.

That says the imf wants to tie your internet search history to your credit and we've been reading through this and it seems it occurs to me during the break that this seems like the banks are crying. Right sees gonna make a cryptocurrency. They can hundred everybody's history. We get zero history. So we're it's unfair. Do they really not get like if the federalists are called up essay was like. Hey somebody this file the nsa really be like no. I doubt it Maybe actually like the. Nsa tends to be pretty particular about that stuff. Actually like the weirdly so that's just support anybody who's above the nsa who can be like okay. I'm taking this file to the federal reserve because that's who's really in charge. No that's exactly it. It's the people above the people controlling the imf can do it but we're not because that's not a us agency. The federal reserve is well and again the people above the federal reserve can do it the federal reserve. Ma- maybe nsa in particular. Like when nancy pelosi is like hey you need to not hire these people that trump wanted. They're like no one of the most powerful people on the planet today. You guys when you were growing up did you ever. You ever had ice cream man. Come to your neighborhood. I did okay and so you know all the other kids run out to get the ice cream. Did you ever have to not get the ice cream because like iran. Didn't have money or you didn't have money and you had to be left out. That's what it feels like to me. It feels like the banks are going. We're your facebook gets on the ice cream naked despite. I don't believe that if jerome powell wanted my facebook messages that he can't get them. You probably have a point. That is a fair point. We'll continue talking and that's part of it too is just that jerome powell might have access to it but not every single buddy at the federal reserve. Well yeah like the janitor. Can't call up and be like. Hey i wanna see some fun stuff. Okay but the federal reserve itself as an entity. We'll talk more about what the implications of this arm where they're coming from. But first let's go to our collar in north carolina going by the name of glenn jacobs glenn here on free talk. Live right buddy. Hey there we go. Sorry i had jim. Yep crypto captain crypto. I what's on your mind. Hey did you see seen an old fart mumbles numbers mcconnell. Try to defend his To face decision not gonna convict trump and his. There's other hypocritical hiding in the closet. Friend lindsey graham who south carolina. I bet you're proud of that big disgrace raw terms. Scott oh hey we just lost not only the current color but The caller who was on hold as well. Well that's an interesting technical -ties here on free talk of murdering cutting the hard. Yes perhaps this is a precursor. We don't know if the lights go off in the show goes off the air. You guys on the line in response to what Glenn jacobs was jarrell jerem. I don't follow that particular soap opera. I mean like honestly. I i have watched absolutely zero of the entire impeachment proceedings of any like. I heard Dave smith make his prediction for what the outcome would be in. That was pretty obvious because I think it was Rand paul had called for a question of constitutionality on on the thing and like okay. Well you got enough people saying that. This was unconstitutional. That if they then you know voted against impeachment than He would be clear. Juries are weird though and actually there are some people apparently who voted that. It was unconstitutional but then turned around and voted to convict. How does a really do that. Juries will vote not guilty of murder trial in places where they don't need unanimous verdicts and then turn around and vote execution over life sentence. Because that's what the instructions say to base it on people are toll. Will the jury in this case was politicians though and i mean that has got to be a rough position to be in like. This was an unconstitutional thing to do. But yeah i was totally for you. Insurance don't care if it's unconstitutional. Care if they get what they want well for for republicans though. That seems like a weird decision. Have you talked to republicans. They don't care either. I want be illegal. And i want farm subsidies but i don't want welfare for poor people well once again rain. Republicans tend to at least do lip service to constitutionality being important. They're going to vote for gives them what they want to once. Again regarding the impeachment of the former president both both times for both impeachments. That just occurred. I said wonder if we can get a third one in here. I said good thing you can do it. After he's at office. I said and nothing is going to happen. He will not be impeached. I said both times. And i was correct both times. Now i'm not saying haha but i of they could've they might have stood a chance for getting him for something minor for sociale. There's plenty of things he's done. They went through charge dog and pony show to keep the masses entertained. So since you're so good at predicting thus far two questions number one will there be a third impeachment here now number two if there is will they impeach him. Well no because there won't be but hypothetically complaining and there is the first part there is the third the answer is still no they will also acquit all right on the third time because all right. These things never occur tried impeaching cyber presidents alive. Nothing ever happened. Nothing has ever happened. If nothing is that right he'll be guilty. Here's what happened e. guilty every found guilty no matter what level of government government investigates themselves in fines that they didn't do anything wrong right but he's not government anymore and i mean in the first place isn't he know pretty sure that once you become president you're guaranteed paycheck for life that doesn't or an even your service for life. Yeah that's true. Yeah yeah you're gonna pay check you get paid. Oh our for the rest of your life be up for you know a mere four years of service. Tell you one thing though. If i was him. I would not want those secret service agents anywhere near me. Secret servants freudian slip. Slip sleep yes. I can use some sleep. I'm a little tired today. Circling back to the article. The imf including some of the writers of the blog posts have to both the world economic forum's great reset initiative and the joe biden transition team. Two of the researchers advocating for the imf tracing our search history luke laban and lev retina ski have pages on the w e apps website levski in particular has defended bank bailouts so the economy can stay afloat. Meanwhile the head of the imf kristalina georgieva has publicly advocated for the great reset initiative notably in this speech to members of the royal family over the summer. The great reset initiative is a plan by the world economic forum in their words to build a new social contract that honors the dignity of every human big.

Please visit bitcoin dot com. We're going to continue talking about this article from reality circuit dot com where it appears. The imf wants to tie your credit rating to your internet search history. And it's one of the most bizarre things i've ever heard but it certainly seems to be As governments do an issue of control they want more control. Want more so that they can exert more control. And we'll continue to talk about that but first let's go to david. Who's calling from san francisco. David you're on free talk. Live you with great subject because I've been fighting the very concept of money for years because the of inviting the concept of money. Oh yeah yeah. It's it's not a fiat currency but of money right. Yeah the very concept of it as a fake and people are born into it And because you have things like twenty and thirty year mortgages People are trapped by it. You know if their father has it You know the moment. They're born their father's got a thirty year mortgage. The kid might be thirty years old by the time. The place is finally paid off and the value of the money has changed so much that You know it says if you're born into a poker game and somebody's changing the rules every two minutes so it's it it at least eight different ways that the value of our lives are manipulated and so I to give you an example if you've ever heard of the line for l. i. b. o. r. the london interbank rate for. Okay go ahead. Yeah it it. It and it was basically how the interest rates of the world were set Y- it got created in nineteen eighty four by Reagan and and some of the burden of not just british but International bankers and at the at the time You know the previous president. Jimmy carter the interest rates had gone basically from six percent all the way up to twenty two percent and so nobody could figure out how to control these interest. Rates so ronald reagan's market forces method was to create the library and it was basically if you can imagine the president of the united states. Creating a thing is not in any way market forces. Well it was it was i. I'm not sure how to answer your question. He was pertain. You know his he didn't want to deal with Every state in the nation every one of the fifty states had usury laws and i came from missouri usury laws in missouri said that any interest rate above seven percent was an illegal interest rate and But no one in the state of missouri prosecuted anybody for charging more than seven percent. And that has. That's how it spiraled. Out of control. Jimmy carter and the st the various states Had no way to stop the interest rates going above the usury rates. Now what the lie board did and which was most interesting about twenty years ago. Well fifteen years ago. Library got caught Fraud ing the data for the interest rates. It wasn't honest it was supposed to be a market forces way but it turned out that the data setting interest rates was totally fraudulent. The government created agency would do something government created agencies sending a rates and interest rate and and market force interest rates are mutually exclusive. I agree and that's how that's what lead up to add By the time they got bust they had three hundred and fifty one dollars worth of debt. Three hundred and fifty one trillion in debt and the value of the entire earth all of the raw materials all of the workings of the people and everything else only amounted to twenty four trillion. They had created three hundred fifty one trillion in debt. And so. that's that explains and this is only about ten fifteen years ago that they got dusted. So it explains how we're trapped right now that there's nobody really dissolved this phony debt and with people are still paying off mortgages and interest rates that are based upon totally fraudulent debt. And so when you start looking at what the imf is doing and you know trying to recapture the credit rating of the world You know y- when you talk about The regular you know a dollar bill. Say like the american dollar bill and it used to be based on gold. They used to be able to print ten times more paper than there was a golden the treasury tend to one ratio and hundred years ago A lot of the farmers you know they. The writing of the wizard of oz was kinda based upon this that the the bankers and the money manipulators were producing less paper. They were doing as low as a six to one ratio. Instead of a ten to one and that that's starved Local communities of the ability to to get anything done. Okay no not engaging in quote enough. Fractional reserve banking is not starving local communities or anyone else have any well no place. You're not supposed to commit any fraud like six times. Fraud is not not enough fraud. It's six times too much fraud right. There should be no fractional reserve banking period. If there's going to be a certificate based on you know gold or something like that then it should be a one for one. Ratio period crypto currencies work. You know they. They're not creating a anything tangible. Creating ring constantly manipulating number which has nothing to do with reserves right so well as hypothetical fractional reserve nothing actually based on mathematics and what cryptocurrency does is. It solves the problem of trust without a third party The third party being either government or the banks so no longer is a third party required for things like escrow right. You don't need a government oversight there because it's just it's an agreement that if you and another person enter into it and you decide on the price of a thing you can be confident that the price that you agreed to pay is the amount the other party will receive without any intermediary in between it solves the problem of trust and that is where it comes from. Cryptocurrency percents nonsense. It's has no basis in reality. Of course you're you're saying that if a farmer has a silo full of green and he wants to transfer it to somebody who has a oatmeal factory Then you know there can be a price agreed. But what what. The difference is is that and this goes back to one hundred years ago when they were you know the wizard of oz paradigm came in where farmers did the hard work to produce that green but the chicago board of trade manipulated. The stock The commodity price and all of a sudden. The hard work got dissipated by twenty percent. You know the share the a pound per you know the the bushel price of of brain Lost Two dollars or something like reserve requirement. Is it's gonna hurt. It's well when you start to look at credit ratings. You know this is one of the reasons why i talked about getting rid of money altogether because a reputation is what a what money is supposed to. How are you defining. Money keeps saying money. But you're describing fractional reserves and you're describing fiat currency. So how are you finding getting rid of including like Gold would be well. The the the big picture is we're born into a monopoly game with endless changes and and every minute that goes by the value of somebody's life is raised or lowered. And it usually doesn't have to do with that. I saw in other words. The credit ratings of a human being is change overnight by whether it's legislation and it could be the price of gold could be expert. David we appreciate it.

Uc dot com basically got through the article on and then we also had a caller who wanted to discuss how he's been fighting against money and he had some interesting things to say. You guys had some follow up on that. Will i mean the first problem is i. And i can relate to Fighting against the idea of money. I used to do so for a very long time But the problem is you end up with the The price problem which is okay so Most people that are that. Imagine a world without money. They still imagine that everyone gets what they need. But the problem is how do you determine what people actually need. And if you don't have people setting what price they are willing to accept for a given thing and others deciding what price they're willing to give a certain thing then you don't actually have you know the immense amount of calculations necessary from spa from special knowledge in order to figure out how valuable something actually is so you don't know what to spend your resources on it's a quantification of scarcity and like. Let's not pretend. I'm not saying you but let's not pretend that prices or any other system create this topi where everybody gets everything they need and most of the things they want. That's not the case. But it's the best we got it. Incentivizes the most production. And you get you. You can kind of go from the go through your list starting at the top and then stopping when you run out of money the main problem i had communicating with him was he refused to define money twice. And i don't think that money means what he thinks. It means but i but then i don't know what he meant so i can't really address it money as a unit of exchange and a store of value. There are some debates. Weather crypto is actually a unit of exchange because prices aren't usually denominating in crypto. I would leave that to to some more technical people. And he he did not strike me as somebody who had principles and foundations and was building on that he struck me as somebody who looked at what was good for him and his friends and then reverse engineered it so it is incredibly difficult to have a discussion Or even come to a conclusion when you we can't agree on the terms so it's important to decline find what money is so that we can all be talking from the same platform you call in and tell me that you defined money as chocolate unicorns with pink sprinkles then. I can discuss that now. I know that you mean chocolate unicorns with pink sprinkles. But if i ask you what do you mean by money and you just ignore the question twice. I can't do anything with that. Because you're clearly not using the official definition and we have been trained to Equate federal reserve notes with money. Right i wanted to mention to clarify a bit about cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is a language. It's code it is. It is speech at its. Core is what it is now. What is money. My definition of money is the language of value. And what does crypto currency. Do it gives that language knew what meaning that that seems kind of post hoc. There is an economic definition of money. Think that is the effect of what the economic definition of. So i'll i'll alliterate even more or expand on my thoughts. So primates orangutangs and that type of thing have been known to create money themselves. Not just just a human thing right so it's an expression of value. That's all money as they will use. Whatever they'll use pebbles they'll use human beings have even used pebbles They've used tulips. They've used you know all sorts of different things to be the currency to express value. How much is this thing where to you. How many units of acts whatever that is are you willing to give up to obtain this item or this service right. That's an expression of the unit of exchange Part of money. Now there's there's also other parts of money like As far as we know they aren't actually keeping track of how many bits of meat they trade for thing but humans like to do that. We like to keep track of like okay. How much am i spending on x y and z. Well you might be granting people with more forethought than is. I'm not saying that shows a thing that a lot of humans like to do is keep track of how much they are expanding How much they're exchanging for a certain thing so again. Money is a language. It's the expression of value now. What language expresses value the best. Is it government. Created fiat currency is it cryptocurrency is. Tulips is it chocolate covered pink unicorns or whatever it is you said earlier. What method expresses that value. The best that is the one that is going to win and that is why cryptocurrency is currently on the tear that it's on because it is a significantly better invention at expressing the value. I say this to people all the time. Because i have a bunch of friends who are musicians. If music is the expression of human emotion then crypto currency is the expression of human value or at least the best system for doing so in the same way music is a language cryptocurrency is also a language kind of depends on exactly what you mean for. Best there The now the fact that you can yes the fact that you can right now. Exchange crypto currency for. Us dollars kind of money's the water on that because like the dollars are really good at expressing value for two reasons so on a small scale on an individual to individual scale what what. Us dollars do is they. Keep the irs from coming after us. That's that's the one thing. We are sure that they did. Most people have to get all if not almost all of their resources with federal reserve notes. Right and on a large scale From country to country. What they do is they assure a given country that they will be able to access oil because every civil every modern civilization requires oil to live like right now for every calorie of food that you eat. Thousands of calories of oil went into it. I would actually argue that. The fact that you can exchange crypto currency for the dollar the usd makes it a superior to the dollar because not only can you exchange cryptocurrency for the you can exchange cryptocurrency for any government denominated currency any across the globe. There is a way a method for you to do so so there's no other currency on the planet that can do that. They can't absorb all of the currency. In fact it is infrastructure it is the language of value infrastructure of cryptocurrency. Right the the fact that crypto currency exists in its mathematical state makes it infrastructure to all other currencies and much like the internet vacuumed up a whole bunch of businesses because while it sort of made them inferior right that is what crypto currency is doing to government currencies. It has vacuuming up. They are all riding on top of it. Now and soon enough there's going to be an inversion to whereas there's yeah there still be some people who transact government currencies but they will all be riding. The wave of crypto could get to the point where we see on an individual level. What the system has set up which is okay. I can pay my car. i can buy a house. I can buy groceries anything. I need in say b. c. h. But that guy gonna kill me. If i don't pay my property taxes. I need reserve notes for that. That which is really why on a systematic level.

Six zero three two eight three six one six zero in the studio tonight. it's myself. The captain pitiless mountaineer and ninety. And we were talking about this article about the imf calling for your credit score to be tied to your internet. Search history. I just happened to have well a segue article if you will. This is from yahoo finance. And there's an article about segues And yeah you know before those rowley deals. That are that microsoft. I think microsoft that are take with before those existed segue meant transition into right like i'm going to segue from one topic to another and have it built a verbal bridge to do. So but how much do those cost a cellphone. You on some bitcoin. This from yahoo finance wants to shut down credit bureaus. What would that mean for you and what is does it mean. The biden wants to shut down credit bureaus. That's that's my question but one of the more fascinating platform items of the biden presidential campaign was the idea of transferring consumer credit ratings from equifax experien- and trans union to a public registry under the consumer financial protection bureau. Also known as the government. I read this to say 'cause i got to say that Consumer financial protection bureau. Just doing a bang-up job so far i feel totally protected. His consumer yeah. I don't feel my finances are protected at all by the organization known as government. And what this says to me is the government wants to take over what are seemingly at least more so than governments market agencies to produce credit ratings currently and turn that into just one government agency. That sounds like a bad idea to me because again the government has very poor track record of taking over things and making them better than i can't think of anything. Can you name something either of you. That the government has taken over and improved silence. No callers can you name. Somebody do oppression. The government took over a and house. If you look at dollar for dollar if your goal is to kill and lock up people the government is really inefficient and killing people will. It's we don't want it to be but it is still inefficient. There's more to oppression than just killing. People locking them up but it is the largest murder yes most close people or entities that big centralization of power. They have definitely done a bang-up job of that. Okay but did they take over at no. They self imposed slavery. They're awesome at that. Yeah there's a few governments good at and i think we've covered them killing slaving Taking your money right I can't think of anything else that they're good at sea lying soleimani really good at lying enslaving killing. Yeah that okay all right. So so basically new. The article says as reported by the balance. This idea was examined in depth in a paper published by a think. Tank called demos in two thousand nine hundred ninety one major takeaway of that paper was that decisions drawing on credit data. Reproducing spread existing racial inequality making it harder to achieve true economic equity. Demos proposed the idea of a public credit registry in that paper. Because you having three or even four credit bureaus apparently isn't enough. They want to have one centralized government controlled registry. Do you mind if i go off on a brief little tangent here. Why go ahead all right. So Two quick things So this mentioned equity so that's a term used to have a specific meaning Both in the financial world and just as a term and it is rapidly coming to a very different meaning. So what was it. And what is it. So what it used to mean was that there was equity in a transaction so like if if we agree that you will give me five widgets and i will give you four thousand. She's and then we do that. Then there's equity and there's also The financial term of like having equity in your house so like If you've put work into it You've paid off Part of your mortgage that sort of thing that becomes equity right and rapidly equity is moving to a very different term and i. It basically is a subtle way of saying socialism. Okay and what was the other thing The other one is that Shoot i i seem to have lost. Oh it is There's there's a lot going on up here. are colored mentioned that There there were laws of Usury laws yes. Now that's another term. That has very drastically changed. I'd be surprised if most where listeners understand. What usery is or the definition of it. Anyway it's it's not a common term. It used to be now once upon a time what usury was was charging interest on loans That was usery and it was not only not only bad but evil because it was considered simony a term them share almost no one knows The idea of selling something spiritual in exchange for something material so the idea that you gave someone gold and they gave you the promise of that. Gold plus more was Was satanic evil because you are selling something that doesn't exist physically for something that does exist physically okay and that did become part of our culture for a long time that you could not charge interest for for anything of of european culture anyway Now the the templars ended up being the first ones allowed to do that. Which is right. When the term usury started shifting so then it wasn't charging interest at all. It was charging too much interest right. Which is what the current definition appears to be. I've just checked a couple sources Usery the illegal actions practice of lending money at an unreasonably high rate of interest interest at or interest at unreasonably high rates as the current definition. And i mean already you. You can kind of see the problem there of well. It's unreasonable will. According to who right who determines reasonable of course the market should determine that and also individuals. Right if i am looking for loan and i go to one person and they go. Hey i can be the loan for you. And i'll do it at twenty percent interest for you well How about ten now. Sorry we can't go any lower than twenty. I go okay well let me get back to you. And then as smart man i should go and shop around and find somebody else. 'cause not now we'll do it for you know eight percent or whatever it is that's on me it's my responsibility to shop around and get the best possible interest rate. I can write in free market. The the modern term usery is physically impossible. You cannot possibly charge me an unreasonable amount. Because i get to decide what th- reason you seem reasonable to me. Thank you for that six zero three two eight three six six six zero. We've got more free talk live on the way we have some good news the indictments against russell alberton the district of maryland were dismissed with prejudice. Meaning they can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that ross engaged in murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at ross outbreak. Denies it was never prosecuted or ruled on by jury put was trumpeted by the federal government and the media. As if it were proven fact. The maryland court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning case and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained in ross's appeal to the supreme court. The fact that the judge used these allegations together all say draconian sentence of life without parole violated his sixth amendment right to a jury trial. Judges are required to issue statis- based on convictions decided by a jury. Not improving allegations never even charged trial.

Live six zero three two eight three six one six zero. Those are the ten digits. You need to join us on air on this. Live sunday night edition in the studio tonight. it's myself the captain peak mountaineer and melanie take off the ground. We've been talking about this article from yahoo. Finance saying that biden wants to shut down credit bureaus and transform them into a single public registry under the consumer financial protection bureau. Imagine what could possibly go wrong here. Why would why would giving government one organization The ability to rate your credit be better than three different one not that they're like entirely private as it stands true and it doesn't need to be its own like free. Company is entirely too much competition. The federal reserve now gets to determine as an entity or not. You get a car loan or this job. No we knew that we have to put pressure on three hole agencies to get things done. Well yes yes they do. I guess that would make it easier. Now they wouldn't have to put any pressure on anyone except for the one agency and well if they make a mistake. Why there's no one to compare it to kind of a level of spite that goes a little are not despite a level of kind of vengeance. That goes along with this. Because it's like okay. Well you had all these credit agent who i guess you still have the credit agencies and you had all these insurance companies who were not exactly acting privately or well and they just lobbied for more and more and more power new not market power but you know power power and then the government was like yeah. I'll take that it's like you kind of want to laugh at him a little bit. It's like well you played the game. Yeah you're kept people out of the competition with you and then you kept more people out of competition with you and oh look now. You're not allowed to compete. It's not like somebody who built a business. Legitimately in the government is like this steel factories mine. Now it's like no that's like you had a legitimate business. Presumably as far as i know you are playing by regular market rolls in and they just stole it. This is like you lobbied for special protections and then the government was like. Yeah that's powerful. I like to own powerful things you know. We keep giving special protections and special protections. It's almost like they're a government agency. He yeah The article says the three primary reporting agencies analyze consumer borrowing and repayment patterns the assign scores. That are then used to assess the person's credit worthiness this can affect their access to an apartment in their ability to hold certain jobs. In addition to the amount they can borrow and the interest rates that they are charged. It's big business enough to support three public companies. Although they do have other businesses as well while lenders have the right to determine the risk of the potential borrower. The problem is the lack of transparency in the process as government is going to solve that right because they've been so transparent about everything so far the three years in a little bit more transparent in the past. You're so it's it's odd hold on. I'd like cartoon and they're like well you know she was like you know what i lied. Actually and then they came on and like well. We don't know when we're in lockdown. Nancy pelosi came out the other day and said we'll we'll in one. So i got what i wanted. I'm not going to give you a stimulus package. That's like these people said these things like it's not me. That's not really transparency. That's more of just like. Hey i lied. So they're being honest about their dishonesty. But only after they've been dishonest in the first place so i don't know if that's transparency transparency would be. Show me the books. Let me see exactly where every dime goes. I mean you know the taxpayers money yelling. Gotcha doesn't really count transparency. I ha- Rate the three bureaus have slightly different calculation methods and data sources which can result in the same person having three very different credit scores. I've never seen three very different. I've seen like slightly different. I've only seen three slightly different. Whether it's me or you know friends or family type of thing right and i mean it seems to me that that would actually be a good idea that they don't tell you exactly how they came up with the thing. I mean number one. Because you don't want because you know in theory they're competing with each other so if there's a win condition you should know what the wind condition is rain. They do things. And then i'll tell you if you win actually you shouldn't you shouldn't i mean this is A problem that comes up in In computer programming for artificial intelligence that Once you make a a measure the goal then it ceases to be a measure of anything useful. Use the author of this thing so like an lug. She's delusional so like for example. If you if you give a an artificial intelligence the goal of do whatever you can do to play. Super mario brothers and get as coins as you can. And what you're trying to get the to do is to explore the levels of the game and in the poorly worded goal. Well i mean that's a way to hypothetically get it to explore that world. No it's not. It's a way to get to go in and crack it and give itself all the coins right exactly and ward word. You will no. That's that's exactly the thing that happens. If you tell people what the exact metric for how they can get their credit up. I mean what you're trying to do is determine. Are they going to repay the loans that we give them. That's that's what you're trying to think that's the case. Actually i think that they're trying to determine who is going to stay on credit long enough for us to make x. whatever we're trying to make and not paid off until then make enough payments that we want them to but that those amounts are secrets guys are onto something because this article continues on albeit. I think this and lug is delusional in her writing. She goes on to say some of the criteria seem unusual and can begin. She's saying it can be gained from a consumer perspective. We're saying it can be gained from the lender's perspective. For example she gives it is better to have a high limit credit card and charged part of it the charge the same amount on a low limit credit card paying off a mortgage can reduce your credit score. In addition errors are common but difficult to correct. Sometimes they can be. I've had around credit report. And i gotta corrected took a while. It wasn't difficult. It took time before it actually came off my report. There's some evidence of racial biases as well which in turn affects access to housing certain jobs in credit. Having subjective search result criteria is not gonna wait. That's the other sites are people who have the right to free copies of their credit report once a year but have to pay beyond that like. I'm not really now. This is what. I find ludicrous. The biden proposal would improve people's access to their credit. Have you tried to care when obamacare. I came out or even go to the website at all gets better. The sentence continues and may lead to standardized calculations. This is one thing that i it kind of astonishes me that people still make this profound error in logic when they are thinking about the government doing a thing they automatically assume that it is done well like just they. They put that as an assumption like the government will a do what it's telling us it's trying to do and be do what it's trying to what it's telling us it's trying to deal with thirty billion dollars a year. I could do this well even though i have no clue how to do it right now sitting ear and while that is the case that does not mean that they're going to do it at all and they're just gonna take the twenty billion. I know the solution to the problems. In both of these articles that we've covered so far tonight and that is the separation of money and state just like the separation of church and state. The separation of money and state will go a long way to increasing the individual's personal liberties and just like the separation of church and state was accomplished by people going their own way on churches doing their own worship so the separation of state and money will be accomplished by us using non-government money correct so use crypto for actual transaction.

Thank you for listing on this sunday evening edition in the studio tonight. It's myself the reverend captain. Kick ass joining me because mountaineer and melanie and we're gonna switch gears a little bit here because this is very interesting to me now. I am a musician. I make music. Can you can hear some of my Sort of weird. Al inspired parody music over at lord kick ass dot com But i must warn you. A dull content does exist in some of my songs. So the fcc would not approve if that is offensive to you. Then by all means don't go to lord kick ass dot com but if you would like some laughter in your life which i think we could all use a bit more of these days feel free to visit and have yourself a listen now having said that I don't personally believe intellectual property. I think that that is just a human constructs within our minds. It's more so away of government forcing people to do things that they otherwise wouldn't do that. Being said this from vice dot com a new video shows beverly hills cops playing the beatles to trigger instagram copyright filter. Now if that doesn't make any sense to you let me break it down if you make a video and of you and your friends in your living room and you have the beatles playing on your home stereo in your living room. And you upload that video to say instagram youtube for example both of these companies have algorithms to detect music that has been copy written in other words registered with the government and says that odin. If you've paid somebody. A fear gotten a licensed to use this music. Can you use it for any purpose whatsoever. and so The youtube or the instagram would take that leader down because it detected the algorithm of the aforementioned beatles song the police now have found a way to combat activists who film them and what they're doing is they're playing copy written music during the interaction so when the activist is recording the police interaction and they go to upload it to one of these sites it doesn't get published because the algorithm takes it down for a copyright violation that sucks particularly for activists in at least three cases beverly hills cops have started playing music seemingly to prevent themselves from being filmed by an activist. Turns out that beverly hills. Pd isn't just into sublime. They also like the beatles in a new video that la area activists senate mont says was taken on january sixteenth. We can see government. Trying to ask sergeant billy fair now best known for blasting sublime at the police headquarters a question but suddenly he's interrupted by the mournful voice of paul mccartney and it goes on to quote the lyrics of yesterday so far away it is the unmistakable opening of the beatles classic coming from the cell phone of officer julian riots who is standing nearby fair points at rise. Phone is if to draw attention to it and walks away debra mark. Who's holding a media. Press identification badge then walks up to raise who is still playing the music and tries to ask him a question but the officer doesn't answer. He simply stares straight ahead and holds. His cell phone pointed towards de vermont. The beatles yesterday moves into the second verse as vice news reported. Tuesday police in beverly hills have repeatedly played copyright music well being filmed seemingly in an attempt to trigger instagram's algorithm copyright filters which could result in videos of police interactions with the public being taken down just in quick question. I wonder why they would assume that it was instagram's like my first thought would be youtube. I'm sorry canal them they all have these algorithms. Twitter has them behind to have to some of the websites that i use or have attempted to use also have them so because i do parody. Music in parity music by the way is protected by a certain love. That's called fair use right so you can. If you're making fun of something if you're using something for education purposes you know there. There's a variety of things that qualify for a chance to be able to use it correct. Yes and so what happens is on on the front of some of these companies. If i take and make a parody of i don't know pearl jam or something like that and i upload it to just a regular site as if it were my own. The regular site has an algorithm that goes. Oh no we detected that that. This is a a melody or a beach or phrasing from pearl jam's bla-bla-bla and thus you're violating copyright and we won't publish your song even though it's a parity it's humor and it's generally commented to some so they're not going to pay lawyer to go through everything that gets flagged determine whether or not you get to keep it up right and that makes sense to a large extent lawyer and heck. They're not gonna get an intern. Attending that will in turn would be useless. Pretending that s- there are private companies for a second that makes a lot of sense but the reason why that is is because they have to be in compliance with copyright law on their platform. This needs to get rid of a lot of option number one hundred on my preference lists this to get get rid into fair use. This is so just one thing. I'm really curious about here is wouldn't that be protected under like To thirty bit like okay. Well i'm a platform so be held liable for what's on my platform so you can't actually sue me for playing the beatles. Well what will really bend your mind and in a second is when i mean i think it's obviously you guys who's And again i don't believe in intellectual property but who is doing the copyright violation here. Is it the activist filming the police now. The activist is not playing the beatles or the sublime or whatever. It's the police who are violating copyright. Are you sure about that. Yes because they're the ones playing the copy written material into playing video public. They are playing it publicly because police are public property. Which so okay. So if i have a a group of ten people at the park. I can play copyrighted music. There's a number at which it becomes illegal. You can't play it to public audiences but if you are if you are police and you are certain that you are being recorded and you have a reasonable suspicion that that recording will be going onto the internet. Then you have a reasonable suspicion that anything that you play will reach an audience more than you are allowed to matter s. Well i mean legally this is this is method alec pie in the sky ranking the law might be applied equally. Might the difference in just bringing a boombox to the park in cranking tunes is. You're not making any money off of it right so if you're playing the radio you're playing a cd that you bought you know you're playing an mp three that you downloaded you bought on amazon or whatever and you're cranking that on your boombox at the beach to one hundred people right. There's no copyright violation there because you're not making any money off of it now. A venue like live music venue time in between bands or dj's or whatever they will spin music that is copy written has to have a license for that right. So it's win. In in that respect there is you have to purchase a license and that type of thing but the activists here in this particular scenario is not the one playing the copy written music it is the police playing the copyright music so they as the law are using another portion of the law to block themselves from being published. See what i'm saying. They're using the algorithms that cut out copyright material from being published to these online platforms to protect themselves from being published in. Whatever it is that they're doing. There's a reason copyright lock hairs which is why you right. Copyright law doesn't right copyright law doesn't care who who played the music. I'm just pointing out that. It's not the activists in this case playing the music. It's the police playing this music if anybody violating copyright law. It's the police in this particular scenario. Would these artists be able to. And i'm sure that they're picking out people who while the beatles themselves would would be horrified by this. Whoever owns their stuff. Now maybe not humor limited. As to this type of thing you know licensing for copyright the very muddy muddy area. And i want nothing to do with it.

Extensive coverage of some of these organizations cop block is one of them. There's a bunch more and there's also activists who've new never even heard of this show that use cameras particularly against police for the purpose of highlighting. The bad things that they do almost like ordinary people would like there to be some form of accountability in police action. And of course some people will say all. The police are already supposed to wear canada's not all of them and also they have switches on them. Why you'd ever get give the police. The ability to turn the camera on and off. I will never know. But apparently they do and so frequently police turn their video cameras off whether it's to pull over a driver for a traffic infraction or it's to beat the crap out of an innocent person who they just don't like their attitude. This happens so it is very important for activists to videotape their interactions videotape. Gotta listen to me. I'm so video. Their interactions with police. Whether it's your cell phone whether it's a specialized video camera of some sort whether you know it doesn't matter the device that you're using a smartphone designed by vhs so according to this article police are now playing obviously copy written music when there are activists videoing their interactions. And what this does of course is it. Triggers algorithms in places like instagram youtube and twitter when a video is uploaded to flag it for copyright violation and not publish the video. It's a way of. The police are using to gain the system to prevent these activists videos from being uploaded and published to a wider audience exposing them for the gins that they are as vice news reported. Tuesday police in beverly hills have repeatedly played copyright music while being filmed seemingly in an attempt to trigger these algorithms after getting the silent treatment from the officer during this interaction the officer playing the music government walks back over to fair who immediately starts complaining so government is the activist in this case. There's too much pressure when you're here. He says fair expresses his worry. That something he says we'll be taken out of context and repeated on the news he then changes the subject in this time. A bit more cheerfully asks how many people are watching. Governments feed debra mark turns his phone around and allows fair to have a look at the livestream three hundred sixty four. He says after government shows him the number of people watching on the screen. That's kind of weak. He says i've bigger crowds for you. You've done better less than a month later. The same fairwood blast sublime at vermont instead of the beatles. The strategy isn't entirely surprising. Nick simmons and adam holland researchers at loomed database which studies copyright take downs on social media noted last year that music and videos filmed at black lives. Matter protests had repeatedly resulted in them being removed from social media sites under copyright grounds. They fear that. While these removals seemed incidental that copyright could be weaponized by the police will be secret police. Can't we all just be secret. Police law enforcement's or indeed anyone of any ideological persuasion who is seeking to prevent videos of a particular event from being shared online. Need only make sure that copyrighted audio is present with sufficiently recognizable clarity and volume in the background of a protest or other event. They wrote a chilling prospect. Indeed and now we are seeing. It actually happened so let this be a warning to you if they manage to do this to you. Make sure edit your your audio on that so that it doesn't come through on the will you edit the video and cut out a chunk of audio and just put the caption of copyrighted music playing here. You can't edit out at least not with a software. Most people are going to have regular personal software. You can't edit out one audio stream out of a video right so I in the Interaction occurring here though like the. The police officer isn't even talking. They're just playing the beatles right there refusing to say anything because they're afraid of being captured on video by this particular activist and saying something incorrect. That case you could just turn off the audio right. You can just mute cops playing copyrighted material in the background and captions or something. But i mean if you're if you're playing something in the background there's nothing you can do. That's true unless you have a hollywood studio at your disposal. I don't think we can even do that here. These activists need to do is when they upload their videos is to Before the video even starts playing have a little blurb that spells out. Hey this is being used for under fair use for reporting. I've heard frequently. That doesn't make any difference to it though and algorithms kick in and automatically delete it exactly but what you can do is if you upload it and the algorithm kicks it back and they notify like youtube will sometimes cine me. I'll be like hey. We rejected your video for copyright reasons. Sometimes you can ask them to review it. Ask human to review it and if your video has the hey this is you know under fair. Use the site the actual statute from the law and say this was uploaded under fair use for reporting right. That is this is how the the news people get to use videos from like concerts and stuff like that right fair use. This is why your local news can have The highlights of the big game from that night right. This is fair use right because they're reporting on the incident right so activist. I think in my mind. That's about the only way i can think of to get around this kind of thing or to at least copyright is one of those things that i don't. I'm not too hard on status for because it's one of those things starts out sounding really sane and reasonable. Somebody was like hey. I don't have a youtube channel. And what i'm going to do is i'm just going to upload other people's songs and monetize it it's like well no you can't. You can't do that. Like even from a non legal or not a non-legal even from an anarchist perspective is like okay. That's kinda shady behavior now you. You shouldn't be doing that but there's a spectrum of like. I'm curious because i don't see the difference between that and a radio station. Playing all the hits right or radio station is has permissions. I don't know if the who pays who but like there's an agreement by not just. I'm copy pasting your work onto my sights. That's it's it's it's not aggression but it's like okay. What are you doing not like. You're putting nothing into this. You're just filtering off someone else's stuff. I do think it's worth mentioning that The possibility of getting around this through putting a fair use warning and Get trying to get it for personal review is a lot more difficult right now. Because i mean right now. It's almost impossible to get anyone at facebook or youtube or instagram. Or any of them to review anything personally and they're they're blaming covid for the fact that i do it. There's a spectrum of and this is kind of with their you statute seemingly was trying to get it. There's a spectrum of like okay or you just totally trying to use somebody else's stuff or do you really have like in this case like you really have nothing no value in this audio being in here. The idea is there. If you're going to do something where you're using other people's art ride their music. You have to add value to it. Maybe being a personality and being a dj informing your own internet radio station. Putting on your show something like that. You're adding value to that That is in my mind where copyright needs to step away more free talk live coming up been a pretty good investment for free talk live their ad campaign started in september two thousand nineteen and from mid march to mid july.

Twenty twenty one. And we'll see you at fork fast dot party so we've been talking about this article from vice that police are apparently playing obviously copy written songs during interactions with no an activist who are filming them. Why would they do that. They would do that to prevent the video from being uploaded to the most popular platforms youtube twitter instagram etc. And so on because these platforms have algorithms that will detect music that is copy written and flag it because you need a license to have that in your video. If you haven't paid you cannot have the music video so this goes on to say that. The strategy isn't entirely surprised. We've covered that law enforcement or indeed anyone of any ideological persuasion who is seeking to prevent videos of particularly event could use this strategy. And so we were talking about copyright you know during the break amongst ourselves and i'm vehemently against it. I mean i have seen the lawsuits amongst musicians and record companies and the r. i. a. And all of this kind of thing and it. Nobody ever presents any real evidence that their album sales or their ticket sales have been affected by somebody else playing their music. What they do is they present evidence that merely projected into the future right so if my band is on tour and we project that we're gonna make five million dollars in the next year and bob plays one of our songs on his youtube video. Why we're only gonna make four million eight hundred thousand seven hundred and forty two dollars and thirty two cents or something like that because they can't prove that anything is really affecting if anything copyrights Violations really do more to promote the source material than it does to inhibit their sales a bit more likely to buy a song. If i've heard it before then you don't know okay. It's dollar now when you're more likely to buy an album if you like a song off that album right and you wouldn't know if you like that song if you hadn't heard it for free right and so these things are always bothered me now. I'm going to get a bunch of crap from my musician. Friends who are all about the copyright. Oh my i gotta protect my art but like like you know. There's a painting called the mona lisa right. Now let's say the guy who painted that is alive right now. How is me taking a photo of the mona lisa. Going to prevent him from making money. It's not possible and copyright is one of those things. I don't usually hold against status because it's reasonable on its face. It's really really incredibly harmful in application but it sounds reasonable on its face. It's like okay. Well you can't just take somebody else's work and then use it in. Its whole for your own benefits. Either by not paying for using it or for the putting it you just upload somebody else's songs your youtube channel and that's all you do and monetize it's like okay. That's that's not good behavior is. It's not aggression. But that's not great behavior. they're framing it and by they. I mean the record labels the recording industry association. All a. you'll hear that a lot. They're framing it as theft now. If i have a magic machine that can scan your vehicle right. You just want a brand new vehicle. No you made a vehicle you in your garage right. You built vehicle from scratch. You made the whole thing and you know. Bring it out of your driveway. To show your neighbor. Bob and if bob takes his magical scanning machine and scans just the outside of your car and then is able to go. Put that into a three d. printer in his own home and produce an exact duplicate of your vehicle. Has he stolen. You're actually one of those. I don't know if you remember those Anti pirating commercials. Like will you wouldn't illegally download a car pulled. Paul w to assume would download the car because because it's just information right so theft requires the party offended to be left without the original. Yeah you have to have less of something ready to have stolen a lot of like i will grant that a lot of the copyright arguments make sense. It's like well. I put work. It relies on labor theory of value. We will somebody put work into this and they won't if they don't get paid for it the problem. The main problem is. Because i wouldn't feel really sorry for people who just pull other people's stuff and sell it. I'm not those are not my main concern for victim's but the problem is you get stuff like this where you can just go to somebody else's events or you as a public official can just play the beatles and now they can't film anything are. There was a bunch of left on the internet a year in two years ago. Who were like. Hey you should go to these far right nazi rallies and just play Copyright music so that they can get pulse. You had the. I think it was john deere but it was a tractor company who was suing a farmer for repairing his own tractor because they were saying that they own the ip and the computer and that he was violating copyright by trying to fix his own tractor. Doing the same thing. It's illegal in some cases to alter software that you bought like for your own use not selling it anybody else. Well an alum. This comes down to a degradation of the very concept of ownership ends up with corporations telling you what copy what the ultimate end of copyright is corporations telling you that you do not own the product that you bought and that is where copyright is really harmful and stuff like this. I want free music. I can tell before google copyrights your dna.

Yes right or i might come up with a neologism that catches on. And you know. Because it's my particular portmanteau. I invented it and that's still completely unreasonable. Hey hey are you step on my portmanteau does i. That's a is that a portmanteau mentos peel rt es yes it is. I believe we have just reached peak. Met the toes of the man who makes portmanteau now. Can i cop that because i invented the group put mentos right and even if you could because who knows what's going to be allowed in the near future it would be a terrible terrible idea like that might somehow become a terribly useful word. And all of the sentences that might be published using that word won't be published now because they have to get a hold of you and give you money before they can use the word right so on that same principle of if you come up with a word you don't copyright that word because it stops us from communicating with each other right so in the same way on on a larger level with arch. If you have all of these copyrights you are stopping an enormous amount of creativity from coming into being because of all of these copyrights. I mean like okay if you look at star wars for example like what they did with. Those copyrights is terrible like the prequels. Were just awful just now. If you'd just let people take that nice archetypical story and do what they wanted with it. you know. make ting's make new movies. You know do do all of the stuff that people do. We would have so much more to work with. We would have a much richer more vibrant culture. There were several science fiction television series or trying to remember exactly which one off top my head i think star trek suffered from this where there is a bunch of fan made films and of course technology for video. Production has increased In availability and it's become cheaper for people to procure Top level video production software. So you know Nerdy backyard wannabe producer. Could make a relatively decent film for pennies. Now it's nothing that's going to compete with the big hollywood films. But with some creativity they can make something pretty good and they would get sued for copyright violations for making their own version telling a story that existed somewhere in the star trek universe. That had nothing to do with you. Know spock and captain kirk and all the main characters that everybody knows and loves they would just go and tell some other story about some new crew that they up themselves it just happened to exist within the universe star trek and then of course they would get beaten down by lawyers right. They're not making any money. They just wanted to release it on youtube. They thought it was fun. It was a labor of love fans. Right right now. I see since the stuff that's coming out in the star or the star trek universe terrorists. Kind of the least concerning thing about it for me like okay. Yes this is all true. It's kind of bottom of the list. The real concern is copyrights gives corporations the legal leeway to tell you that you don't own things that they sold you mike. You don't own this item that they sold you according to some law and you have to just keep paying the money and can't alter it and just because like now there are now like the god of this item because of key that's copyright actually does right and i mean it's reaching to gross in disturbing lengths at this point i mean there are literally copy written genomes. Okay so Yeah like monsanto did that to like corn and it would be something that would i think there's a term for this in agriculture but it would infringe because a seat in a plant doesn't know where a property line is. It will go into somebody else's property destroy the existing the nasa be and then kind of plant itself because seeds do that right. The reason we have plants is not because people were around five years ago planting all the trees like this is how plants work and then monsanto would sue them and so now they have to pay royalties to monsanto forever because they now own. Species of plants are destroying the originals. Like no they've own all food. Monsanto this is what copyright is right right and and obviously the farmers did not invent corn or whatever. Plant is in question here. The this occurred of its own volition. In other words you know one farmers fields next to another field and they cross pollinate and so of course the other farmer is going to get some corn that has that particular signature initiative genome and of by no fault of the other farmer. The farmer didn't go. I'm gonna jump into my neighbor's field. Still because of different things are pollinated different ways but like a b.'s. Not flying around being like okay. This guy's property better turn back like this. You can't own nature okay. I mean i guess legal you can but you don't actually own nature as a whole you know. Let's let's assume that this keeps going in the trajectory that its face right now. Okay well how long. Before monsanto decides to release a retrovirus that puts some of their copyrighted. dna. Into your body and then suddenly well. You're not allowed to have kids without their permission. Is that's that. And and and a lot of the The ancestry tracking Companies have it in their in their contract that by giving your Your genetic sample.

You know if you don't get in tonight why we are here seven nights a week again. Feel free to call in a during those times in studio tonight. it's myself. The captain beagles mountaineer. Melanie and melanie. You had an article that you brought. Can you tell us something about this guy who has sued for seeking records somehow. So there was a report i mean. Obviously there's reported this. This guy was a reporter and he made a foia request on a government agent. Or that's a freedom of information act and the government agent responded by suing him. And the reason why i even care about this is because i like a good revenge story okay. And so seriously when it's revenge against a you know supposedly public servant who is Acting out against being investigated and so the publication and the reporter responded by saying well. Hey this is not only. Am i going out you for suing me because the why are you doing this. You know i'm a reporter but By the way it says our views. Jeff landry suitor reporter for seeking records. You should file your own requests. And then they tell you how to two hats this from the advocates We been hardens by the support. We received since friday when attorney general. Jeff landry filed suit against a reporter envious gallo for submitting a public records request to his office. Gallo is seeking to get to the bottom of a sexual harassment case. That has roiled landry's office and based on his reaction. The case seems have broiled landry to louisiana citizens have the right to see public records and it's written into the state constitution it's also written. It's a federal law. Journalists file lots of public records request but so do average citizens who have a grievance with their elected officials. Are you do it just because you feel like it. But tax payers who file requests are better than to be sued by the public officials that serve them. Landry against gallo concludes with a six item prayer for relief. Chiefly injury asked the court to determine that gallo was not entitled to see the original complaint filed in the matter against the head of the attorney. General's curl division and pat mcgee. He also asks that the record be sealed. Which can even do that. That's not a proper request for a civil suit right. Asked the judge to seal records. Not i'm going to the judge. But you don't su a private reporter to private. Reporters can't seal records about the way. The fifth of the six prayers requested that the court cast the defendant with all costs of these proceedings and other awards. Landry asked the court to make yellow pay the legal costs of his lawsuit. The suit is not just an attack on gallo. It is a warning to any taxpayer who might challenge. Any elected official after the suit was filed. People asked us what they can do to help and support. Open government or publisher. Judy territories are editor. Peter convicts in the chairman of george media. Dan shaw filed the same public records request. As you can join in by filing your own public record requests with jeff landry and showing him that he needs to tell. The taxpayers is truth about what happened in his office. Here's how goto this link. We'll put that up in our social media so if you want to also file this freedom of information act request you may join in the fun. Please do yeah and it's just. This is not a fantastic normal behavior for louisiana officials. they've also been known to they. They're their videos of reporters standing outside of a building asking them questions about her proceeding. They're going to or from and so they respond by arresting them. There's one where the cops confused. he's like. Well arrest him in the cops like for what though in louisiana an interesting place walter reed right before he got arrested and he knew he was going to the guy who served him Papers for another suits. He told the guards at the courthouse to arrested in the guards. Sit around for a while and the guy stayed the guards sitting around for a while like we know. This is legal respite. He told us to. What do we do. What are we arresting him for like. This is not this. Offer them new orleans recently Without banning mardi gras basically banned mardi gras. They said no. You can't you can't open the bars on. Brave streets They put up blockades like the concrete barriers areas that they use on freeways and that kind of thing. They put those up so people could not drive in down or near bourbon street. We either who don't usually drive down the street the pylons a road per se but Because they they didn't allow the parade that happens etcetera and so on so for all intents and purposes they did shutdown mardi gras without actually shutting. It you know what i mean. They didn't say hey. Everybody mardi gras is off this year. Because i think that they are. Not cancelling the festive. Thank you impossible for you. To actually engage. You know that you can cancel a day of the year but they have a democratic mayor right now because of course they do but yeah. I mean. they canceled the parades. I saw some of the pictures of the barriers from people. Still on the internet down there. It's like yeah i New orleans there's going to be drunk people like okay.

Dean of students nasha torres have already been found in the courts to be conflict of interest as evidenced by the transferring of the university of new mexico basketball players Simple assault cases out of bernalillo county to a distant county because of that conflict of interest. And it's my argument in this public record and my legal notice to the state of new mexico and the parties listed that they need to dissolve the conflict of interest that the marriage of Not dissolve the marriage but somebody needs to quit their job or be replaced because of that conflict of interest.

Live by calling the number that they provide on another night And let us know. I'd be interested to see. Just you know how many times that has occurred. The law is very clear when it comes to conflict of interest now Most folks aren't aware that every time you go to court. There's a conflict of interest anyway particularly if you've had an interaction with police officer that is to say You know police officer pulls you over. He gives you a ticket. Some kind you go to court for that ticket. The police officer the prosecutor and the judge all derive their paycheck from the same place and that is the definition of conflict of interest. So thank you for the call. David we appreciate it. Good luck It's inherent within the assistant at the law is very specific in that conflict of interest. Should nullify any case against you.

Finally lily bulky tells us three quarters of colorado jobs require education beyond high school jason gonzalez higher education reporter for chuck beat colorado says his research finds adults seeking more education many different life situations. He's talked with folks who have bachelor's degrees. They can't find jobs in need retraining and people who've never been to college and don't know how to start the process there are adults with family. They're juggling jobs most of the time. They're doing this in sort of a piecemeal fashion getting a little bit of training here or there and it might take them years to graduate from a program. That is one or two years. Gonzales found that colorado focuses most of its job training efforts on high school students but the number of high school graduates is set to drop after twenty twenty. Six not only are working. Adults seeking more support for education but employers are seeking more highly skilled workers advocates. Colorado will need to rethink how to expand training opportunities. This is my clifford.

See one big or tampa bay. I lost a little bit on the over. I thought it was going to be an over again but then again. I didn't think kansas city would be held to three field. Goals with that offense all right so the ratings were down nine. Nine percent art is political. Is that the fact that the pandemic overrides everything else is the fact that the second half really never turned into a second half because kansas city was close on a couple of those passes. They weren't completed so nobody was watching in the fourth quarter and maybe the second half was not watched because the halftime show was so rotten. Why do you think the ratings combination of all those factors friends. I mean you got a lot of things into it. But the other part of it that kind of surprises me when they draw rating of ninety two of them they added streaming which is another five million people.

Drop everything else because right now the spectrum internet is pretty much the as in the southland. That's what on the air and so but Watch it a lot of people. Doing you notice. Spectrum now is raising their internet rates because they know people are getting rid of the cable and marquees that all right Let's keep talking about the national football league radio and You know who having operations one furry toll in one. I think for a knee and of course the game again. We've discussed it. A you watched it if you did. I watch fifty five to me. That was like one of the worst of the entire group of fifty five fars to gain not just because i- kansas city. I just thought it was orenda. Maybe because i was thinking about the pandemic maybe because i was thinking about what's happening in d. c. But i i think all in all just a horrible horrible halftime shows indicated before. Hey let's talk about. Jj watt he wanted out of houston and a text and said okay your houston his brothers. Of course with the steelers mark. His wife plays soccer for chicago. So my thought would be if either team would wanna pay him. You would be pittsburgh or chicago and he'd be happy with app. Mark what do you think. Well let me coin a phrase that wayne gretzky said when the edmonton oilers. I went to new jersey. The houston texans have become a mickey mouse operation. And what's happening there is everybody's leaving in droves. I don't know what's happening around that city. I been there. But they're they're escaping that place and jj wants the latest to say. Hey listen i want out. I like to see him in pittsburgh. I mean you know reunite with the brother and yeah well. The steelers retired today. So maybe they can re-sign these guys but for that he has seen. North is going to be an sec. Coming up here man. Those teams top to bottom are gonna knock each other out all right so watson watson may or may not come back I presume he will are source. You think watson to sean stays with the texans or are they totally redoing. No way he say there. I wouldn't be surprised if he is the starting quarterback of the jacksonville jaguars. That's my latest call on that. And the reason i say that is Do you really want to wait around for for lawrence mature or you take a guy. Go ahead to sell the first round draft. Pick to a team. That's gonna be rebuilding. They would tell me has. I don't know what he's got. But he's he's got a real rebuild job on that whole dumpster fire in houston. I mean i feel really sorry. 'cause i met mcnair the original mr mcteer who passed away. Robert nothing but problems with that franchise and there's a great writer for the houston newspaper. They mclean and he is like he is sideways. He's followed that team. Going back to bump phillips and you know even though peterson before that when they had george glavin quarterback in the early sixties and the bottom line is that that's a rebuilding operation. That's where you get a number one draft pick a quarterback and try to retool it lots of the said unequivocably. He's not coming back to that. Urban meyer hires chris oil. He was paid off Million one hundred thousand. But they wanted him out and it wasn't just one former player with a group of former players all speaking out on with their names so they weren't hiding anything and urban meyer goes in that direction. So let me let me throw it to you. I mean of course. Urban meyer was at ohio state when a lot of problems. We're going on sexually with the wrestling program jim jordan. Of course the the assistant wrestling coach now of course house of representatives nitwit. So what do you think about urban. Meyer hiring crystal art source. I think it's the stupidest movie i've ever seen. But urban meyer has done that his whole career he wins in spite of the he base and i mean he was. It wasn't exactly a lot of controversy of florida. based on. what are if he didn't have ten kibo keeping team together. I mean you remember. Her does was on that team. And there were situations that. I can go back and remember covering where you know. It was not real good so it brings with him baggage. They say in. France bug on the bottom line is that moves higher. Strength coach from iowa makes no sense at all in above and beyond that. At what point does roger goodell go. Hey urban what. Are you doing my favorite quarterback in the league. Russell wilson seattle may or may not want out. He definitely wants our decisions. Mark your comments about russell wilson. You think he'll be back with the seahawks or do you actually think they might get rid of them. I hope they don't because with two wide receivers. They have actually three anyways. They can score a lot of points and they do offensive. Line markers russell wilson coming back. Stieg talks maybe seattle trying to be neck and neck with houston there. They let him go. It's going to be of morbid franchise for quite a while and well. I'll tell you wonder who they get for him though martin. Well i wanna russell wilson in a few cities that would turn over around in a horry and one of them can handle friend. Ciara well again. The bottom let's go. let's go back to the world. You you say that it depends who they get form. They can't get a better quarterback than russell wilson seattle can. They aren't well. Let's put it this way. There's some great great talent quarterbacks out of the market right now in this quarterback carousel and we've talked about it friends. I mean go down the list. I mean look at it. Who do you want. You want darnold. I p carole go. Sam darnold If you could get three offensive linemen istani darnold. And the receivers they have. You know what i mean. Look at what happened. The russell wilson this year fred. Her state games he looked like the cat's meow and then after that offensive line started like doing the lookout flocked. I mean he was getting crushed. And i mean bottom line is why would you wanna play football at a high level when you have to run around and run for your life like bengals are are. We're gonna come back with more. We're gonna play beer sports trivia. And we're talking about quarterbacks. Everybody's saying tom brady is the best. We'll we'll talk about that when we do come back on sports overnight america.

Let's play some baron sports trivia when i was very young. My favorite quarterback was johnny johnny and itis. Where did johnny night play his collegiate career. Mr mancini while i should know this. My dad tried out for the baltimore. Colts remember the day. And gosh where did he play. I want to say. I'm gonna take the whole region so i'm going to say it's gotta be somewhere on the east coast. That's not fair. That give you a barbeque aisle give mark denny crum louisville. You know my hand was my. My hint was going to be Louis baseball back. And of course you'd against louisville but new okay so again mark. The new regime here after the super bowl starts with a minus already signed with a plus all right. Let's talk about another great quarterback and again ardy hundred and twenty four years of age. He may have seen him play for the cleveland browns. None of the rest of the world probably did you could still be alive and having seen a auto graham. Where did he go to school. Mr art source great lakes naval academy. That's not true. i mean i'll state lakes. That's not true. Either he played in. He played in the big ten. The other guesses. I just read all about the great lakes. I mean i know he. He played with paul. Yeah he coached. They're not okay. Mark any idea. Where the great auto graham with cleveland browns fighting ally night all right it was northwestern but i was gonna say mutual western mutual but hala fame football player from north western. Not only that not only that in his first year northwestern he made all american basketball to. That's all talented of grandma's. But i wanna talk about is as we're talking about tom brady and all the winds and certainly can't take away. Any of the seven super bowl victories. But take a look at the cleveland. Browns with auto graham say was like oh i mean seven world titles If you add them all up my point is you know. The cleveland browns haven't won a. It's not a winning team. It's not a winning city. There's no question about that. But but the point. I'm trying to make is they haven't won since nineteen sixty four with jim brown. Paul warfield from ohio state round of course from syracuse milk lump from penn state was the quarterback they haven't won since nineteen sixty four but with auto graham between like forty five and fifty three. There were like three or four. Nfl championships as i just indicated the other league before that he won championships and he lost a couple of the games in the championship. Game of that era. So i mean people jump on brady and say united or graham well. Most of the young people obviously didn't see tonight is or graham mark. You have comments about that. 'cause you're you're you're younger than rs. One hundred twenty five hundred. I think you're right on that. And i grew up with bradshaw. And i thought bradshaw was the best brand you know. You haven't seen a quarterback went back the back since he won the mvp and seventy eight seventy nine season but just finish up on brady. I almost felt like stone. Cold steve austin the other day tony romo. If thought pat mahomes want he'd be only four behind brady. Let me tell you something. I'm not into plant in only four. I'm not really into these flash in the pan quarterback so i'm not older stock on mahomes and rodgers and manning and fouts these guys will throw for ten thousand yards bringing individual awards but what i saw rady jewish. He changed the whole landscape. Nobody's catching you know when one of quarterback walks up to a wide receiver and says. Hey i need a little bit more effort outta yet. And he won six world. Titles you have tennessee. Pipe enlisted when the coach gives you that you know kinda like alright coach but that's what what areas talked about the change of the culture. The change of of the the positive is in the fact that he was the first one there every day and he worked his butt off and he did whatever necessary to do. He had to do to bring that championship. You know they'll guys are few and far between there's another quarterback we got to throw out there though too that always gets overlooked and that's bart starr you know he's got an awful lot of world. Titles as well. I let me throw it to yard bart star. I like jonnu. I never saw auto graham or tom brady. If you had to pick one quarterback and you're one hundred twenty four years of age your kid get lombardi living. I guess so. I guess because we give check i'm okay. I'll take on ballot check any wine but they also had a lot of talanoa another great offensive. Line the fullback tailbacks. i mean they. They had lots of talent as far as the green. You get horning you had you know the offensive line fuzzy thurston and we. He would overlook. Jim taylor and willie wood and very enron kramer. Yeah not only that you know you know what i liked. The is when i look at brady. And i look at lebron james. Nothing to take away michael jordan. All these other guys but these two guys when you look at their career the titles. They've racked up or you know teams have taken pretty much done it with you know bunch no names and year in year out they have just set the bar still. You called him and donate mark. You mentioned a carrie bradshaw. Where'd he go to school. Oh he's a louisiana boy a lot of schools in louisiana. Where do you go to a huge louisiana tech. Well we'll see. Mark says louisiana tech. Is that true art. Yes it is a money originally went to lsu it there so he went to louisiana tech. He actually competed against the guy. That is the outdoor guy. What's the what's the beard. And then he has a hot tv show. What's the name of that show backwards guys from louisiana. I'll i can't think of it right now. That don't ask the question. You jacket quarterback to this guy. This guy must have been what happened quarterback by the way anybody know who johnny and night speed out with the baltimore colts because he was a fine quarterback from the university of oregon. You know who he beat out who earl moral no. None of michigan state was immoral but from oregon georgia in he was a top notch quarterback how from oregon and i remember him for playing for the baltimore. Their head coach in those days was one of the best head coach at the actually coach. John robinson he coached Who else bruce snyder. John mckay italian starts with a c. Castle kesse beanie kesse cavities. What was his name anyway. The great great coach at the university of oregon in those days. But you know what when you look at the super bowl guys. If you're gonna take a decade dominated. I'd have to say the seventies in the nfl with the dolphins and steelers cowboys owner. You know who always wound up. You know in in the background with good football teams grand the vikings but the ramp the vikings beat the rams the rams of course. Oh my god. Hey you mentioned okay. So we're thinking and mentioning who. We think the best quarterback. All time i'd be brett farve would choose. Brett farve mark. Where do you go to school. Oh man he's mississippi. State guy would say. Mississippi state art is mississippi state southern miss archer shot. Okay so what are you taking again. It's it's not focused factor and it's not prevalent in what's the name of the stuff that not sponsoring this show yet just show l. o. It's called awakened really good. I can't tell you man brett's larvin before the hotel shutdown school pandemic and everything he checked in. And i'll tell you man this guy looks like it's still play in the nfl. And i told him that he believes he can football games. Monday night football game. You guys. Earth passed away as they have had. Yeah that i remember watching that game with tears in my eyes. Because i have never ever seen a quarterback to this day. Play again like that. Game against the raiders. What do you have four touch on the first half or something like that it was. It was unbelievable right right. Not only that i would take brett farm any day of the week over aaron rodgers santa again. I would take credit for any day of the week over aaron rodgers.

Look back everybody is sports overnight. America email us sports. Fred at aol dot com. We're not far away from spring training and baseba- and who knows more baseball. Dan schlossberg author of the baseball viable which can pick up amazon dot com and various bookstores. Bookstores are open around the country. And welcome to the show. Thank so. I've read your stuff. I mean for the last six months. I've been reading your stuff almost every day every other day you changed your mind and the d. h. Now of course the national league is doing away with the d. And twenty twenty one used to be on my side on this issue. Why did you change your mind. Well i. I'm sort of straddling the fence. Still because i always like to see pictures hit if they can't because that was a great advantage they had over their opponents like warren spahn who had hormones to the brain and seventeen consecutive seasons or twenty or two grand slams. A game the first player national history ever to do that. But of course babe. Ruth began as a pitcher and a whole bunch about it. Became big hitters later on so i like that part of the game but on the other hand. I co-authored ron bloomberg's book designated hebrew and he was the prestige and after watching what marcelo last year. The first year the nationally had the age and he was voted to the year. The all star team. So you know on both sides of the issue you. The dodgers have an advantage if if we go with no deviation nationally because again kershaw doesn't hit with power but he can hit the ball at least and i don't know a lot of people who fouled twenty in but he said to thirty three in the minors he might be the sixth or seventh starter but they keep him on the active roster just because There is a da show. It's a very interesting scenario fars major league. Baseball is concerned. I am totally totally opposed to seven inning doubleheaders. I i don't understand the whole thing. Bottom line is if fans there obviously in new york. Now they're going to allow fans at in california. They're not in other states. They are in other states or not but the point is You can pass this disease very simply and if you have five thousand fans or twenty five thousand vance you don't have five thousand police officers security officers or twenty five thousand security officers so what the heck is it matter. If you play another two innings in the first inning of the first game could spread it could be a superspreader right. Then your thoughts. Yeah that's why the hall of fame is already canceled. The hall of fame inductions of the second year in a row. It's gonna be televised. That car exports center field crowd where they expect that hundred thousand people to see derek jeeter. That's not going to happen. I so why would baseball and again we talk about on this. Show the word greed all the time and revenue and this and that and whatever the case might be. Why have any fans. At games if you obviously. They know. it's a possibility of spreading. If you're going to cut the games down to seven innings even in the minor leagues pacific coast league. When i was a real little kid a near your age. The bottom line is they play a nine inning game and then a seven inning game. So now they're going to seventy games. Does a pitcher have to go five innings to get the starting pitcher have to five innings to get the win now or should it go down to four if we're only going to play a seven inning game. That's true what happens. The game's go into extra innings. Every have the designated runner in the eighth inning. Because it's a seven and a game is now in an extra inning that that has to be addressed to explain what the logic is of getting game over quicker. I mean the point is more time if fans are there. They can spread it in the first inning in my whole life and i i'm guessing based on your love for baseball. You've never worried. If a game in twenty six innings or twenty three innings or sixteen innings or twelve innings. I like those type of games. I've never gone to sleep a dodge going get. I'm on the west coast. So i have an advantage if you're on the east coast. You obviously three hours Closer to sleep at the point is i've never turned off a game. We're going to dodger stadium. I've never left early. If if it was tied three three in the twelfth. I wanted to say the outcome. Yeah that's not figured game one of the braves reds playoff game last year where trevor bauer picton struck out twelve minutes seven innings and then it went extra innings scoreless having ended in the thirteenth inning. They have the designated runner talking to dance. Schlossberg baseball expert beyond belief the baseball bible. His you can pick it up. Amazon dot com major bookstores everywhere. You mentioned trevor bauer. Okay dodgers owned by the guggenheim's andrew. Freeman is the president Their manager dave roberts black and japanese. And you've got like jeff. Trevor roberts a fine pitcher questioning that and cy young last year but he believes q. On his stuff and the la times writing about it almost every day. Now the point is he agrees with much. Of what queuing on says. Why would i mean character and things like this matter when they got when dodgers got monkey bets. They got somebody with great character in trevor bauer. You can't say the same. Your comments very true very true. I i haven't reading about that cunanan stuff. And that's why curt schilling we'll never get into the hall of fame. In fact a lot of writers who voted for curt schilling here tried to have their ballots. Recall so they can take their vote for him off their ballot. And that's exactly the reason because of extreme right wing sentiments then what him on the podium making a speech and infecting the whole country so in a way. It's a good thing that he did not sign. That did not sound the new york mets because he never would make it in this city. I mean if you're andrew freeman what are you thinking right. Now he had no. I didn't honestly until the i knew about the fact that he's been on arizona and they got rid of went to cleveland. They got rid of him and went to cincinnati big. I rid of them. And the dodgers in a short time and the middle years. They weren't dominant. Era was like close to four last season. In the sixty game season he was dominant. Obviously and he got the cy young and but he has done things in the past that would equate to lack of character. And he's gotta do th-. I mean listen. He's a bright guy. Went to ucla and right away ucla garrett cole within the same rotation they hate each other and i've talked to some of the the x players teammates at that point there on coal side there. I hadn't found one that was on. Bauer side shouldn't andrew freeman of check into that. He had to know that. Yeah i think so. And i wonder why it went down only two teams bidding for him at the end. I think that a lot of teams refused to bid for. Because of that i again. It's to me. It's it's insane it's insanity and again. Do you think there's going to be from the dodgers win last year and even know turner does a major mistake at the end by jumping out there. The team clubhouse had to be pretty spectacular. Most guys must've gotten along. I don't know how long this will last and as a braves guy. You might be happy with that but as a dodger fan. I think it's insane and more than it's not just as a dodger. Fan human being. I don't want. Trevor bauer around. I mean i really. don't he's already written. I'm sure you've read this. He's reading to the fans. Don't leave me. i'm happy. I'm here but i'm not big on signing autographs. Well that's part of your job. Yeah you would think a forty million guy can definitely find the time to sign a few autographs. That's ridiculous all right. let's talk about your atlanta braves the The numbers have come out the analytics that come out one of the books. I think they got the braves only winning. I think eighty two or eighty three games. I thought they'd come out like eighty eight or nine. What do you dan. schlossberg has a braves fan. An analysis of the situation. What do you think. I think they're way off base to use a baseball term. Trump's here's what here's the bracelet. Since last year. First of all they added charlie morton a big game pitcher the only pitcher to win four game seven in postseason play. The only one they added grew smiling from the giants who may wind up in. The bullpen is a pretty left handed strikeout artist. They have some very good young picking. Max freed within the configuration last year. Who left handed pitcher idolize sandy. Koufax he's from la by the way and make sirocco missed the entire season after lifting his achilles tendon early in the year he pitched only three games and he's due to come back the brazen can have very strong pitching and just last night. I sat down and compared the braves and mets position by position. The braves win almost every position. The nets are better at shortstop where they got francisco. Indoor there possibly better you know their number one starting pitcher jacob degrom given that Centerfield i think the brains are christian. Passe great rookie. I think the strong and certainly even with marcel defensive problems. The braves are much stronger in westfield without a through last year. Freddie freeman is not the mvp of the national league so also key. Here are the albee's and ronald kenya. Junior were injured for good part of last year with risk problems. If both those guys are healthy out necessarily east it's going to be the fourth title in a row for the braves. Dan schlossberg tell me. Why then was they come out. The book comes out. I think it was eighty two and a half or eighty three whatever the case might be what negatives would they found To say the braves are gonna win. Eighty two eighty three games and twenty twenty one. Well they could say try. Morton is thirty seven years old so he's due to come down. You know just natural baseball. And they also think the freemen assume can't possibly be as good as they were last year so guessing on that but another characteristic another positive for the brains is austin riley should be elected. He's play he's two years he's so tremendous power if he makes better contact and he will. Because chipper jones is now going to be hitting coach for all the atlanta home games. There's going to be a bigger putin at third base too. And by the way. Travis note with the best guest patron the holy. Last year talking to dan schlossberg author of the baseball bible. Right here on sports overnight america. I play fantasy every day in baseball basketball football. Depending on the season we have a lot of listeners. Who are red sox fans. Obviously the trade bets last year they get a real good player. I think inexpert ducal from the dodgers. Either betty was an awfully good player too. I always play them. Are playing a lot in fantasy. Why do you presume. The red sox Dispatched benedetti a- away. It seems like a salary dump to me. I mean he had a pretty bad year last year compared to what he did before but again. It's a salad right time doing that for a while so i don't know exactly what they're up to that. Red sox are going to be better. Because they're going to get chris sale back by midseason from this. Tommy john surgery and of rodriguez she'll be back from covert and it's hard problem at the start of the season so look for boston. It'd be a lot better but toronto is the team to beat not division and as we do this show still some possibility of kris bryant from the cubbies maybe going where toronto the possibility the mets are a possibility. The braves are an outside chance. Although i can't see that now they refined those who know so. I think that the mets or baby toronto. Those two teams are probably what's left. Washington was up to having to because they never replaced anthony. Ren don't cubby certainly aren't earners ation bereft of money. I mean again. It's like the red sox. Neither i mean a salary dump for teams that i can see it with pittsburgh when their entire salary structure. I think it's forty one million but the cubbies and the red sox what's going on the basic problem is if you don't have fans in the stands you have trouble meeting payroll because these teams depend heavily on game day revenue. No fans equals no game day revenue. Let's go back to atlanta in atlanta that they allow any fans no they did not and they have a big problem. Came to ever having you to. They lost about one hundred million dollars last year. But in new york there will be fans this year very limited basis ten percent maybe twenty five percent and we'll see how long that lasts talking. Dan schlossberg author of the baseball bible. One final question obviously You would not vote for curt schilling. What about any of the pd guys. What about obviously bonds and clements and the rest. Would you vote for them bounce none. No manny ramirez. No sammy sosa then. No omar this cal even without the domestic abuse thing. He is not a hall of famer by any standard and again the argument. Of course people tell me well. I'm on your side on his. The people telling me well bonds would have been a hall of famer. Before he took the drugs in my honest answer would be. We don't know when he started taking the drug. Your thoughts he would've been hall hammered. Before i do agree with that and same with roger clemens but anybody who gets better as they age is not doing something right or doing something wrong. You'll get better would say something's not kosher in the state of denmark. Dan schlossberg as usual great job.

P. d. with trend mondro trotsky we have our outstanding guest. Joe dillon major league hitting coach of the philadelphia phillies now in believe the second year. Joe wanna welcome to the show. Is that right. Is it your second year third year now. Yes sir yeah. Second year Thanks for having me as pleasure beyond guys taco shop absolutely so your first year you had to navigate all the covert stuff going on. I'm sure that added a plenty of challenge and also i'm sure trying to stay on top of your hitters. You know all the way through this year making sure that they're ready and it looks like everything's gonna go on time You know. I really want to dig in a little bit. I know that you are big into having an individualized approach for your hitters. You know focusing on the physical the cognitive and a psychological aspects of the header. Can you kind of giving overview to what that actually encompasses in how you try to apply that for sure. Yeah i mean you know with all the information we have nowadays. It's we're equipped now with the with technology and information to really gets guys now that move you know how they process information. You know all these different things tracking on whether swinging at chase and all these different things from from my perspective as a coach in a always. Try to simplify everything as as much as possible in When i'm thinking about breaking down a geyer now thinking about how how to work with guy attack a guy you know. I kind of have the three bucket approach which you know the physical piece which is basically back down. You know you're mechanics those types of things Then you got the cognitive side which is from the neck up you know how the process information There's a there's a company that i worked with With the phillies work with i work with several teams in the major leagues. But i've worked as a consultant with them on called Sports since s to ignition. That's cognitive testing It's it's really really really interesting stuff. I mean really get you kind of get you on. Meet the hood of let know how your players process information just like physical tools players have cognitive cognitive tools. As well and my level you know some the best cognitive athletes in the world to to be able to hit the major league pitching on dan day and basis and so understanding how they can process information and how to train them through that has really helped and change the way that i train the guys and and prepare them to compete And then obviously the you know the human elements always going to be. The x factor is the makeup. The toughness all those things that we've gone forever right so that's got approach. I take with the guys in in with those within those three buckets. You know come up. Individualized approach that which best fits individual and and attack the trying to make them the best version of themselves. Well the you know you hit on the human element part that has toughness the heart. The bounceback is there any way to you. With all the technology. We have these days to quantify any of that i mean. Is there a really a way to measure or is that just like a field. Hang as a as a hitting coach to your players. Yeah i think it's definitely you know a feel is getting. Get your guys get another personalities. Get another background. Where they came from what they've been through those types of things and i think those the the experiences through their career Through their life for the things that kind of make up their toughness and whatnot. So you know they're they're trying to come up with some type of clutch stat. And i think they have something out there that kind of exist but you know. I think it's more of some more tests you know. We experienced that in nineteen in washington. That was a great human human human study. Really i mean we are at one point time like nineteen and thirty one is like point zero one chance to win right but that group of guys you know. This is my twenty. What twenty first year professional baseball in that group from all the teams that. I've played on and coached that negra guys just love each other the most The closest group of guys that i've ever been around You and whenever they came together the team took off. And you know combination different things but just Proved everybody wrong. No other number said we're gonna win. None of the analysts said we're gonna win but we win and so that's a perfect example of of of the human. There's any chance to win that. Human element can always come into play and take over at certainly. you know. i think you said it really is still tough to you. Know to quantify it but you can feel it. It's like the energy of a person you know you've been in the game. So long the highest levels i mean the guys that are true competitors. I think they probably stand out like a sore thumb. What the the first thing i want to ask is this as a player and as now a major league hitting coach when you came in as a hitter versus now i mean. Do you feel like it's the same things that young hitter struggle with or has there been some sort of evolving process. Going on to maybe guys now struggle with different things guys back when you were first breaking in two major league baseball i mean i think the games evolved for sure right. The you know the pitches the pitch types You know with all the information we have in the pitching side. Has i think the pitching side is ahead of the hitting side but rightfully so because the pitcher controlling the action and more were being reactionary. so This little bit tougher on our end. But i think as long as as long as baseball played. It's going to be big time with saalbach timing. We go back to as long as you can remember right hitting timing pitching trumping. That's that's the one thing my guys got my guys are off. They're not getting time consistently and you'll get on time. You make bad decisions. Make better decisions. You make outs. And that's when you go down down the spiral down the on the black hole that we've all been down several times as a hitter. It's it's not easy to do and you know it's it's it's extremely extremely and so let's some things that you talked about. You mentioned earlier on you know. Come up with different ways of train. My guys you know they can when they do start going down that make justice pitch her game to game and and you come out make those you know. The bad strikes shorter in hot streaks longer unless the goal. But i think like you said the timing thing is the more and more i learned and the mortgage around it like. It's just you pull back the layers. It comes out of time in the guys who can get on time more consistently are going to be more consistent and make better decisions. Make art contact be more productive so and so forth so at The way we approach outstanding joni tross deer like to ask you about the timing element and is there. Is there anything particular you guys do to to develop and train timing. And also there's does their game plan and approach a lot to do with the timing because they're hunting bitches obviously. They have to be on time with the pitch they're hunting. So how much preparation you guys do. A prior navient spring training. Oreo offseason for developing that ability. To be on time and how much of it is. Is the metal game. our approach. Our game plan. Yeah i think You know there's a lot. Obviously there's thousands of drills on all aspects pitting in every got coming up on new stuff new terminology and everything The biggest thing you know kind of the way. I think about guys you know you. Gotta you gotta create energy. You got control it and you gotta bail release it right and usually young hitters coming up. They don't control their energy while they use it can create it whether it's the right way or through momentum or what have you but usually don't control that energy very well And that's in. That's kind of where the timing component comes in because if you can control your move control your energy you can control when you get on time and you're a control when you're not controlling your move controlling your energy that pitchers and control anymore in trouble and so putting the players in environments where we practice that and you know really. I'm basically trying to make him panic. I'm trying to. I'm trying to create environments where i'm pushing them. I'm trying to knock him off the bike and they're trying to ride the bike right and so all the different virus that you can do with that where you're constantly changing environment. Constantly keeping them locked in keeping them engaged and push them make trying to make him panic in in practice when they game. Theoretically it's a little bit easier in the game vs our environment and then they can relax and they're going to be able to be on time consistently and and make better decisions and be more consistent but about you know you're talking about the cognitive approach and you're talking about actually like trading plans it for the for the individual hitter if you can you give an example so you guys gathered formation and then as you gather information how that affects of your plan to work with them from the mental side or how does that apply into their approach their practice drills for sure so a perfect example. I'm name names. But when i started really diving in and trying to come up with individuals plans based on gas cognitive profiles the the the cognitive profile Their skunk skills just like physical skills right so some guys are gonna be stronger in some areas than others vice versa right so Perfect example is we. We created some some drills. Were basically create an environment to their training at preceived posses of hundred ten hundred twenty eight hundred thirty miles an hour and based on the two players caught in profiles we ran through the same drills but we told them the exact opposite right one guy. One guy was physically gifted really fast twitch a lot of speed but he is perception speed of like you know has snapshots of the pitch coming in. He wasn't wasn't really strong in that area. So therefore we like you need a back filled up give them inside half the inside corner backfield up trying to return to get him devise a time as possible with the other guy he was as quick twitch didn't have as much speed and his kind of scale over better. It was almost the opposite thing where we're trying to get him to pull you know. Get bad head out make better seems to be no shut down and go so those with those couple of things there Two different approaches for two different guys in the same results smoothly right back after a break.

The United States House of Representatives passed the two trillion dollar emergency aid package and we await the president's signature on that very important bill. I'll continue to work with our federal counterparts to bring in as many dollars home to Illinois as possible. I want to take a month today to address. Some of the latest ideas that have been floating out of the Oval Office. President trump yesterday went on a talk. Show to question whether Americans really need more than two liters to save people's lives He did this on the same day that our nation overtook China and Italy having the highest number of covert nineteen positive cases to say that these comments are counterproductive. is an understatement. And frankly at at worse the comments are deadly. When I said that the bedrock of my decisions was science. I meant it the equipment. We have equipment. Were still seeking. These are the recommendations of the best medical experts epidemiologists mathematician models in the nation. All of whom have set aside. Their daily duties helped save as many lives as possible. We need exactly what we're asking for. Perhaps more if we don't the equipment we need more people will die. The president needs to use the defense production act to put order into the market for ventilators and P P it will prioritize Americans over foreign countries and allow states on the front lines to access the equipment. We so badly need he needed to do this. To activate the defense production act weeks ago or even yesterday but it's still will make a massive difference in our national healthcare if he simply moves quickly one way or another. We need these supplies and I have a whole people who singular focus right now. Working the phones calling across the world to get much p. p. e. as many ventilators and as many tests as possible shipped to Illinois this morning because of my stay team and their hustle and working all hours of the day and night we received another shipment of state procured and ninety five asks and they have been in the process of delivering stocks have. Ppe That is our staff to champagne to Peoria. Edwardsville and Marian. We will not wres- until each and every region of our state has what it needs but without the federal government individual states don't have enough market power to procure what is needed on their own.

Gov backslash help is here to learn more about the wide array of supports available to those most in need today would like to quickly highlight and go to into A little bit more about four crucial resources for communities across Illinois Snap Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Services for people with disabilities.

The puts food on the table for nearly nine hundred thousand Illinois households feeding over one point seven million people in our state and stimulating our economy people eligible for snap include low seniors and individuals people with disabilities and working families with the recent passage of the federal family. First legislation monthly snap benefits will increase dramatically in some cases by over ninety percent a month for example a single person with the disability or an older adult with less than two thousand dollars of monthly income is eligible for one hundred ninety four dollars in monthly snap benefits now before the legislation passed they would have received six dollars a family of four making less than forty two thousand dollars. A year is now for six hundred and forty six dollars a month in snap efforts our administration as always want all eligible people to receive these benefits and as always are in the fight against hunger. This is important now. More than ever the the Department of Human Services has quickly implementing federal federal measures and somebody waiver waiver requests from the federal government. Has the governor had mentioned for temporary measures to increase flexibility? We have and we will continue employment man ways to help more families withstand the extraordinary pressures many are facing during emergency. We know some snap. Participants may be unable to get to the grocery store. If you have a trusted home care provider a family member or friend. They may help you. Access some of those benefits are we to reiterate with. The governor had noted in his remarks because it is an important point with changes snap expenditures for just one month just for the month of April will increase by almost eighty million dollars over march. That's eighty million dollars more a rolling up to about three hundred million dollars of federal assets and resources that are being pumped into the Illinois economy each month while also putting food I table of Illinois residents while some of our offices are still open we do urge individuals to stay at home to sign up for snap benefits online.

Information can be accessed through the governor's office early childhood education and the array of websites that we've talked about today before close. I'd like to highlight. Vhs Is work to support people experiencing homelessness over the past several days. We've been working. Relentlessly to build on the infrastructure of altruism programs that have been partners with the state for many years meet the dynamic needs of people experiencing homelessness during this crisis helping our partners and enact social distancing measures for this population D H s already funds hundreds of organizations who've served people who experience homelessness through Shelter Supports Prevention at port of Housing.

Dhs Off to be swift flexible accountable and ensure locally driven decision making these organizations know their neighbors at air community assets the best so we are deploying funds through one fiscal administrative agent to support their work. We're pleased to be partnering with all Chicago in this effort to meet the needs of people who are experiencing homelessness right now. I'm pleased to introduce caroline.

We are distilling information from hundreds of pages of guidance from city from from the state and federal authorities focusing on what is pertinent to shelters and other providers that house clients together and living in close proximity. We are using an online channel where providers can talk to each other directly and share information quickly called providers are being held every week with more than two hundred partners participating we are increasing availability to help disperse Resources using our existing Emergency Fund model to support our partner providers who are supporting and implementing services to our citizens who are at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness shelters and providers.

She's me sufficient to provide all of the necessary so that homeless providers are persons experiencing homelessness will need during this time of this emergency and beyond some examples of support or may include hotel and motel cost temporary alternative housing identified in communities across the state facility modification and expansion costs for some of our existing providers who can't who to equip and furnish alternate alternative facilities and areas within existing facilities not normally designated for shelters increased staff costs to expansion of shelter Provision in additional facilities so that we can keep these facilities operational and other costs will be considered to allow flexibility to use funds to fill a critical temporary live need outside of what his previous previously listed.

Chicago resident can apply for assistance by calling three one one and ask for emergency assistance to receive these services through the Chicago Continuum of care for additional information. We have developed a link on our website at www dot also cocco that ORC backslash corona virus and now. I'll turn it over to the governor for questions thank you thank you caroline. I just want to point out to everyone that although caroline represents an organization called all Chicago she is representative of the organizations that are dealing with homelessness all across our state and She's doing a terrific job here in this region representing people across the state. But I just wanted those of you. Who are listening watching her outside of Chicago to know that your local organizations are being funded That our department of Human Services covers the entire state of Illinois and especially concerned to to focus on homeless. People who often are forgotten Perhaps in the commentaries That made but but who are. So vitally important to our state. We're GONNA make sure that we stand up for you no matter where you live in the state of Illinois so with that happy to take any questions that you may have Dana own yesterday down and late state wide all news of well we did close down our state parks across the state and we have encouraged local governments just as Chicago. Did to make sure that they're keeping an eye out to see if people are in fact hearing to stay at home many places in Illinois people are doing exactly what we asked I know it was a beautiful day And so people were incur. Felt like they should go out on the lake front. Didn't realize some of them. How many would be there. People need to be attentive to the idea that even if you had a plan and you thought perhaps there weren't going to be a lot of people in some park that you're going to if you see a lot of people are pleased. Don't go there. Please understand that being with a group even if you think well. They seem to be safe for. They don't seem to mind In fact any large groups who are not Adhering to our ten Number limit and who are not adhere to the six foot social distancing rule You are in danger And you're putting other people in danger if you don't adhere to these rules issued until seven at this point or about extending Dana. You know the truth. Is We evaluate this every day? We really do. We try to look at the trajectory of the People who are Tested positive for the virus. We look at the trajectory of the hospitalizations and the issues around. You know the the deaths of course that are curry. Icu beds we ask ourselves. You know what's the next move? What's the most important thing we need to do? More than ask ourselves because some of us we don't come to this as experts though. Were quickly moving in that direction but we rely upon the science. We rely upon the experts out there to tell us. Are we on the right trajectory? Are we reaching a peak? When will we reach a peak? What happens on the other side of a peak so we're constantly evaluating that and So it gets worthy of everybody just paying attention to nothing is set in stone. You've seen There's been a progression here right. We we were among the leaders among states to I two to ban large group gatherings and then to ban To close schools to ban bars and restaurants from opening and so on. But you've seen a progression right. If I knew then what I know now perhaps I would have put a stay at home order in back. You know when we shut down Saint Patrick's Day parades But we're evaluating the science says it comes in and making moves that we think are necessary up this list. Sorry this nicely rest for question next year so I let me say this th that as our comments here today and you heard Caroline talk about and you heard me talk. We're very concerned about the homeless about the possibility that they will become infected that the fact each other in of course and and of course You know I was concerned about the homeless before I you know we ever came across this Virus in the crisis that we're now So working hard to To provide We're contracting with hotels. Motels other shelters to expand capacity across the state especially during this virus And so we're continuing to do that. Work It Takes Time. You know if we could have done this before We would have Now there's some you know a real public health crisis now were. Were you know trying to make sure that we're doing everything that we can't for every resident of the state? It's the right thing to do. We're GONNA continue to invest in that you know food clothing shelter of the basic needs that people. Have you know there are people who already were experiencing the need for the before? This virus came along this expanding population. And so we're going do everything that we can and again working with our existing agencies the nonprofit organizations all across the state to see if we can house every Craig. Did you WANNA evil yesterday? Five thousand nationally to Yep so remember that I. I've been one of the loudest governors on the stick of testing because The truth is that there isn't much testing going on across the country. You can imagine that What we've experienced very similar to. What many other states have experienced in terms of what's available for testing I just want to remind you that. There's an entire supply chain associated with testing. It's not just like well. Here's a test and you know it's one thing it's actually made up of viral transport media and nasal swabs and RNA. Action and You know and then. The machines themselves Which are expensive the Roche machines and others that are available and they're only so many of those in the world and what are you know? There's a shortage of every one of those items. Why we asked the president to to invoke the Defense Production Act. It's why we asked the president to loosen up the ability of hospitals to develop their own tests which they finally did do and thank God. We've got some of the best hospitals and healthcare Research institutions in the world. And so they were quick on it and we were able to ramp up more testing working every day. I'm watching those number of tests. I have given more of an answer than I should because we adopt here. Who is in part for three of the state labs? We were some of the earliest St Louis in the entire nation to do testing and Dr Z. K. Has Been engaged very closely in this issue so so of course. I C mentioned we were the first pick health lab in the in the country to bring the testing online but in addition to that we have been able to allow other entities in the state universities in private hospitals. We have given them the tools they need. They need to be able to do the testing in their respective institutions so that increases the capacity for all of us in the public health lab. We are going to two shifts day so that we can ramp up the number of tests that we do We are buying the machines and giving it to other entities so we were soliciting people who are able to participate in this in this testing effort. And of course we're keeping an eye on what Rapid tests might be appropriate so that we can have more robust heading that we have. Then we have now so our capacity were continuing to grow it and increase it. We know that that's an important effort. Not so much in determining whether somebody would get treatment because there isn't one now but I know that even if someone knew that they were positive. I think that would affect their behavior. If you know you're positive I think you'd be more likely to just really withdraw. Make sure you stay away from from others. And so that it is an important part of the of flattening the curve and dealing with the pandemic to make sure people are aware and so that we can follow the incidents and follow the trajectory. So when we're getting to a better place so aggressively working to increase testing. That's an important part of this. Whole covert nineteen responsible advantages. Were let me add something onto her her answering at actors he gives answer and then and then to your question the You may remember that about three weeks ago. Maybe a little more The vice president of the United States should up and said We're going to have millions of tests available remember He talked about the commercial labs and putting through drive thru Testing and so on and and I mean for all of us out. Were looking for more tests. We said that is terrific. I mean thank God because there's only so much so much equipment that exists in each of our states if you can get the commercial labs to spin up millions of tests. That's terrific didn't happen didn't happen then didn't happen for another guy was screaming even louder another week when I in a louder You know the truth is that even now that's not true The commercial labs are up going and there are more tests available in hospitals are sending tests to California to North Carolina to other places from Illinois in order to get a test but it takes days several many sometimes days to get a response from You know after it's been sent because of the backlog because guess what not enough supplies not enough machines even at the commercial labs so I if again if I knew then what I know now I would have gone out and We were bought machines more money more machines for the state of Illinois So do it ourselves. That is what we're essentially we've been doing for the last week and a half or two weeks Because we the federal government is stepping up to the plate And then I just WANNA point out that there's one more bottleneck in this that's Very difficult to overcome. And that is you know even buy more machines even if you get the swabs even if you get the viral transport media even if you get the extraction right if you've got all that is still the lab technicians who are trained on machines and guess what those are in short supply to because who knew we would need the spending lab technicians. I'm sorry but. Us another question wanted to make this point and won't both simple answer both. We're only doing so many tests You can see that was limit to the number of tests we can do And there is an increasing So we're increasing the test but not enough for increasing it. There's a vast majority more people out there who have Kobe. Nineteen than we are currently testing And in many places Main hospitals are simply suming that if you have a deep respiratory cough You know trouble breathing and a fever that without even testing. They're they're often now. Just assuming you are ovid positive. Because they don't have a test to offer to everybody and so That is you know one of the challenges that that of the federal government taking so long to get on the subject of testing. We would know so much more now. We'd be able to treat some more people early And we would have the the you know the social distancing orders in place earlier. We've got one work in the room and then we've got to go online. Divers nurses are that. You're preparing for legal void you and also reverse the president's vague reference last night either specific road Ventilators that you were questioning from the federal thousands. Go with what was saying. Justin was in from L. G. More by is part. Thank you very much. That is really great. News invoking the Defense Production Act show vitally important as I said to the president directly. But he's a businessman. He didn't wonder what the capital with the capitalist market. Business people to do what they do. That's all well and good but we are in a crisis. We are in the national crisis. That y you know and I said to him I was a businessman to before I became governor. I understand we're saying but the market is the wild west out. There were competing against each other in the united and then against other countries for what already exists in the United. So I'm so pleased to hear that some movement but that's only gm that's terrific but we need more we need much more Sorry you're you're we need thousands more ventilators we have been. I was on the phone today. with with a ventilator manufacturer's trying to get a hold of those thousands more venter's as many as we can in short order Unfortunately you know as you hear time and time again like I was just saying you're competing against everybody all the time and indeed were competing against foreign countries who've been named to me you know in the list of their priorities at these companies and again. That's why you need the defense production act to be invoked So that we can get the ventilators here in the United for what our needs are here for making them in the United States. We should be able to buy them here in the United States. But you know that's that's not happening for everybody. Today there aren't enough ventilators Going around it's why this is such an important development And then you had other part of your question. Oh yeah maybe you could example Doctor Zeki so there's endless Tasks that can be done. Some would be direct care. We know that some people who might be over the age that we wouldn't want them to be in contact with the Publican risk being infected but those people could absolutely practice ehealth telemedicine. There are people who could monir the ICU beds remotely telemetry There are people who will be helping with planning and organizing so from direct care to organization to tell a health. I mean there's quite a range of options that these different professionals help in the effort I think in the emergency call up because this is really an emergency. Alert System The idea is that if you had a day when you saw big influx of potential hospitalizations or people getting sicker And you know as you know we're looking at at alternate sites. We've got a LOT ALTERNATE SITES. We're not just looking at working on now We may need to to call up people who aren't currently sort of staffing every day And we made to need to do it on short notice so we want to be able to literally text them a broad swath of healthcare provider. you know professionals so that they might be called up to a certain location. People live in a certain area of the state we might say. Hey everybody we need. You know. A hundred or fifty of these kinds of professionals. Please let us know this afternoon this evening to come to this location to help us out. So that's situation that we're in. I talked to a shortage of staffing All across the board. That's you know we got a call up everybody. We can medics for example who are in the military who may not be May Not have been professionally licenses. Let's say an LPN or in some other capacity may have gone on to a different career. Frankly when they got back from military we need those people to be called up to service. And we've got some questions from other reporters. Would you please ask the governor when he expects the General Assembly to ACT ISSUES RELATED TO PROPOSE CHICAGO? Casino I don't know all I can tell you is that we're in the midst of a of an international pandemic An emergency crisis And You know look I would've I. Have you know an entire list of things that that would like to get done for the State of Illinois but Right now you know the priority to saving lives when Will Illinois begin releasing account of possible as Asians caused by mid nineteen as other states? Like New York have done working on that now. I mean we. Obviously we talked to all the hospitals all across the state We get data but you know over over history that data's been collected in different ways across the state. We WanNa make sure that it's all in one system been piecing it together but in terms of our ability to report that on a regular basis to all of you. Were making sure that we're doing that. We'll be working on that over the weekend. Several chambers of Commerce are asking lawmakers to shift the minimum wage increase schedule exempt unemployment insurance claims from affecting the business contribution rate and deferring of sales tax payments. Are you guessing any of these ideas right now? We've already deferred sales tax payments on the two These are obviously things that will wanna be working through over the next Couple of months. I just want to remind everybody though You know I've I've had calls with some legislators or or others who Raise some of these issues like the minimum wage are like the fair tax or something else and oddness with you. We're in the midst of the big crisis in our lifetime at least in my lifetime across the nation. So we'll get around to talking about those things but right now we're focused on hospice healthcare workers and those were sick and dying. I'm hearing employers are withdrawing offers to be graduates. What is happening college and high school seniors hoping to graduate with a credible diploma? So we're working together. I is be for graduating seniors And our IB H. E. that Board of Higher Education with all the universities to make sure that Our graduating seniors at both levels will be able to graduate There is of course online learning. That's going on in many places across the state of Illinois But we're going to make sure that everybody gets a degree as far as jobs and the other end of that as you've seen this massive layoffs going on across the economy I hope that on the other side of the peak That will begin to talk about and we are working on. You know thinking about now Wh How is that? We're going to be reopening all of the things that have been shut down really over the last several weeks so You know we're on top of paying attention to it. It's going to be a national endeavor. Are you coordinating with any other? Governors to prevent patchwork of rules especially in light of trump's talk of reopening the country. Well there wouldn't be a patchwork of rules of federal government stepped up in the first place But as it is I you know it's my job to protect the people of the State of Illinois and we've been a leader in doing what's right and keeping people as safe as we possibly can thank you to the people of Illinois who have responded so ably to our calls for staying at home And I I would say that the patchwork is remains a patchwork long as the federal government doesn't step up and recognize that this is. This is a war. It's a war against a pandemic. The federal government needs to lead. And until it does will be a leader here in. Illinois. I think it's clear now that if you look at sticks like Georgia and others that were slower to get on the bandwagon. I don't WANNA call out every state but you know.

Nothing will happen to Jimmy. I'll get every able bodied man in this town. Hammer Sodas get them back. Don't you think that's up to Mrs Carson or husband husband?

Since Carson Got Scott with the engines two years ago now allow get on out to the. Please don't Teach them not to go out there. You're going to stop me if I have to. Not if I can help. I'm sorry Ellen. When he wakes up tell him. I've gone to talk to the commanding officer at Fort. I don't know Mr Paladin if they've taken white boy. It's our duty to go after them. What good would that do travel? They'd kill a boy and you'd have to kill a lot of Indian but it breaks down the morale of the settlers. If we don't do something a little remiss in your duty already what do you mean? I mean red. Cloud's been off the reservation. For what two months shouldn't you have gone after before this technically? Yes what. My Command was split. I add some of my troops up north. We heard a rumor that sitting is in the badlands sitting bows in Canada nunavut. Yes you're right Paladin. When I heard that red cloud let the reservation I sent two companies up north offensively looking sitting bull purposely splitting command. You must have been a good reason I did. I've been red cloud. I'd have left the reservation to why they were starving government policy. I guess seems we make agreements with the Indians to get them on the reservation after their their why we start cutting back Baxter. Gave them a million pounds less meat this year than last year and he has government-sanctioned for that. I assume he does. I don't much care for the man so I stay out of his affairs and he stays out of mine. That's fine accepted now. Red Cloud's walked out and he's taking the white boy with them and you're going to track them down and kill a lot of starving in. I don't have to track him. I know right where he is joined up with crow dog one. He's up and cross cut. Kenyan you'll devil's just sitting out. There hasn't moved. I had to keep an eye on him no matter how I felt journal. Let me try something but let me go out and talk to read clown. What good would that do well? Did it ever occur? Maybe he's just sitting out there waiting for somebody to come out. I don't know the tunnel will be up in arms when Baxter tells about the boy all right you make your move but just hold off and let me go in. I if I fail well you can do what you have to do. If ANYTHING HAPPENED TO YOU MR Paladino if it does nobody miss me Right but be careful external. I leave right away. It was almost sundown when I reached cross cut candy. I didn't try to conceal myself coming into red cloud's camp with the result that upon my request I was taken immediately to see the chief red cloud taught long. He told me the whole history of himself strived sue even his part in the battle with custer and he told afterwards even lured to the reservation with promises of grain. Corn Meet Rummages. Fine but not true we get less and less food for Indian great chief Red Cloud. This still gives you know right to take white boy and kill him not catered white boy. Take them wait for a long time. Now hold for bargain. Make Agent Baxter give full treaty rations to Indian? What does Baxter Baxter Cheat She Indian? Gt government how he tell government more Indian reservation than we have. And you get more supplies but Indian government chand less than even he keeps the rash hog rude or die we die see then he says the surplus your make much money for himself. Red Cloud will get fair.

"No I've heard a lot of nurses as well. We didn't sign up for this. We did sign up for this, and that's why we all continue to show up because we love our patients. The problem seem desirous is that patients are showing minor symptoms? They are absolutely okay to discharge. Suddenly people are progressing to worsening. We're having a lot of cardiac arrest on patients. That were fine an hour ago. And now they are one of the hardest things is that when these patients are crashing received? They're crashing, trying to stop yourself from just running into the room without any kind of gear on is extremely heartbreaking. You have to make sure that you're covered. I narrowed and several times where you know if we just get a mask, goggles on gotta go, because these patients are very quickly, it's been a completely new experience for us. I had a patient that I sat with as died because families can't come into the hospital. That has been extremely hard because nobody should ever have to die alone, and we will always make sure no one ever dies alone. We will always be there with them. Only start seeing these really extreme cases. My husband, who is a firefighter paramedic, and since I'm emergency room, nurse, we're both around it and we both can't take time off, so we decided to have our children go to my parents house, knowing what she's seen in what she's dealing with. You know that help make my decision into agreeing with her to have the children go over and stand her parents house for the time being. It was a hard decision, but they understood what was going on. They know what. They do for jobs, especially our oldest. WHO's eleven? He does understand our middle is eight, and our youngest is only you're half, so he's the only one who doesn't understand. We tax back and forth video chat with them couple times a week. We see if they need anything. We drop stuff off and if they come outside, we stay away from them. You know hugs. No kisses, anything like that, but you know they'll show us. You know some stuff that they've been doing at their grandparents house, make him forts and whatnot in driving tractors around our youngest cuyler. He no, he doesn't understand why. Mom and dad have picked them up. And why you know after. Ten fifteen minutes, you know we've blown kisses and we get in the car and we leave. It's been extremely hard. My children are pretty much everything in the world to me. It's so quiet in her house. You could hair pin drop. It's so strange so when I'm looking forward to most is having the kids back in the house having them yelling and screaming toys all. All over the place dumb in the backyard, jumping on the trampoline. It'll just be able to be their dad and hold them hug him. I just want the kids to know that you know. Mom and dad loves him that we're doing this for their best interest and that this is all going to be over soon and nothing like this hopefully will ever happen again. Can't wait to hold them again.

Part of the cares act both Steiner is the Illinois district director for the small business. Administration. He explains the program if the business.

She says books are the perfect tool for a pandemic. You read it, and so it's entertainment and then if you really had to, you could use it for cleaning. You can actually you could use it for food, and it's a good source of fiber, and you can use it for fuel. She says their sales began to plummet before the stay at home. Order and Chin says books on first sells books, but Age people come in for the experience. They sit around drinking coffee, talking to each other in perusing shelves. That's not possible right now, so some are buying books online. While other loyal customers are finding new ways to support them. One family even asked if they could walk by and half her show them puzzles through the front window. Literally doing window shopping. Chin says people buying anything from self help to fiction and especially kids books Chins also applying government relief programs, but she says the application for the paycheck. Protection Program has changed several times, which makes it more complex for her and her banker. It's terrible.

Tenth Illinois shelter in place or is extended at least until the end of April and the federal small business relief funding recently ran out of money until Congress can pass another.

Mullen Governor Jeb Pritzker and others are predicting the corona virus will deal a long lasting blow to the state's finances. same dunk logs floors. What analysts? Analysts are expecting and what state lawmakers are planning to do about it governor Jay. Pritzker made no bones about saying. L. Annoys financial fallout from covid. Nineteen might look like he appeared with other state finance experts at a press briefing earlier this month. Budget experts estimate that Illinois will have a two point seven billion dollar shortfall of revenues for this fiscal year. And four point six billion dollar shortfall for next fiscal year, pritzker explained those numbers are just estimates, but keep in mind. The state's current fiscal year will end in about two months. The state treasury could have several billion dollars less than what it was supposed to by. Then why is all this happening won't simple Predator says states like Illinois get the lion's share of their money from three sources, income sales and corporate taxes, but hundreds of thousands of residents are out of work in businesses of all kinds are closing. That adds up to a big drop in springfield bound cash. This is a public health crisis. But it is accompanied by. Economic Disruption. That's unprecedented in modern history, financial analysts, and even state officers themselves have said Illinois would be pressed to find extra cash in a downturn like one pandemic has produced. Here's comptroller Suzano Mendoza back in February Place for this sixty thousand dollars in our rainy day fund it is not enough to cover thirty seconds worth of expenditures for this state of operating expensive sixty thousand dollars. It's laughable, so It's actually very sad and is if that weren't enough. A big chunk of cash. Illinois has already won't even come in for another few months. The income tax deadline was delayed until July fifteenth. So while plenty of workers are still getting paid. The State won't see your share of that money. Until next fiscal year. We have another big chunk of it waiting out there and A. Latin in timing or the changing timing and collecting revenue is going to make a difference for the state. That's Ralph Martini who directs the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, he says cove nineteen is dealing the state a one two punch, not only will it take more time to get all of that tax money, but there will likely be less of it to go. Go around and the problem with that is a lot of people are relying on that money to trickle down to their communities to fund essential services. Obviously, the public sector has to be the primary creator of those or low to moderate income. Families don't have access to quality. Schools want access to healthcare won't have safe communities or interventions that are appropriate for abused. Children won't have. which brings us back to the state budget? Lawmakers will have to approve spending plan by July first, but what it will look like remains more of an open question than it usually does. Might Clemens who the tax policy consultant, and who worked for twenty years at the Illinois Department of Revenue says with several billion dollars to make up and fast hard choices will have to be made Illinois get Outta the fiscal hole. Let's him that just got exacerbated. This got. Deeper whoa face very difficult decisions raising taxes in cutting spending, and it's probably going to have to be some combination of both so if you're a state lawmaker, what do you do when a multibillion dollar budget holiest staring you in the face representative Mike Celeski who's one of the lawmakers crafting that plan says it's easier when you've had some practice. He remembers the Illinois of just a few years ago when there was no budget at all and fourteen billion dollars in late bills had piled up. I'm not looking forward to doing this again, but. We do know what we're up against in nineteen. It's taking a little bit of the steam out of What's coming our way to to know that? We dug ourselves out of this toward? Though many are meeting right now in remote working groups, it's still unclear if and when lawmakers will return to the State House to vote on spending, and as the Leschi says there's still plenty left to do. It's going to be a lot of. hard hard work, and at times trade, and and not in innovative probably, but the honest answer is here today I'm Sam Dunk.

I'm just trying to watch some hockey and we just got a strike gone on our other channel If you don't know we do another channel called anarchist. And a few months ago I did an interview with Richard Gauge of architects and engineers for nine eleven truth. Where we talked about nine eleven, truth and basically physics, and it was just taken down and removed from Youtube because of hate speech. So I. Guess Physics is now hate speech. But I think what they really mean. Is They hate it? When we talk about the truth about the cabal, and what really happened on nine eleven? So in any case I'd already recorded the interview. which I think is really important to get out there. It's with Leila. WHO's the Shaman an archipelago? And I wanted to get this out before anarchy. POCO, which is coming up this week. and. Our Channel forecast has a strike which means. We can't upload anything for the next week, so I'm just GONNA. Put it here. If you're just sitting psychedelics, any sort of issues addiction I just saw Jordan Peterson. His major problems, he of course, was given a bunch of drugs by his drug dealers called doctors. which are incredibly dangerous and you really can't get off the missile part of the pharmaceutical industrial scam. Couldn't get off them. Of course without trying to kill himself, which is what actually happens with a lot of these things, and so he went back to the drug dealers in socialist. Canada and they almost killed him. Not Surprising and so he actually had the fleet, a Russia to get some help but. We actually talk about some of the stuff in this episode. Especially Boga how it treats addictions. So if you have any sort of addiction, problems or anything like that. Depression, a lot of these belts can really help with that. Normally wouldn't be on the digital channel, but as I just said we're getting wiped pretty quickly off of Youtube. If we have the old interview with Richard Gauge of architects and engineers, we're going to put it in the lakes down below might be on library your bit shoot, and that's a big reason why we're on those platforms, because we don't think we're GONNA be on Youtube, much longer looks like my other channels getting shut down right now. This will probably soon get shut down, but he can't. Actually see Richard Gage at the upcoming narco. Boko. He's going to be speaking there. Actually have a livestream would watch the speakers. You can go to John Dot. Com Slash two thousand twenty livestream. And leave it there so very interesting interview with one of the most interesting shamans top Shamans in Mexico. Mix Ago this is cast. Everybody welcome to enter Casio for Andrew on the Internet. We're going to get psychedelic today I've got on A. You can call a old friend of mine. We had very interesting experience when I first met him his name's Leila. He's actually been doing. He's the Shaman at an Arca Boko. He's been doing numerous things including Iowa Ska for numerous years. I, don't even remember how many years now I'm gonNA. Ask Him about that. Actually five years. Yeah, it's been. It's been crazy and. I actually met Leila for the first time where he's coming in from right now. which is in Tobacco Slam in Mexico just rate near Mexico City, and I actually went there to do Boga, which is crazy. It's the craziest thing I've ever done I. Don't know if I could ever do it again. There was that hard although I do have some experiences that might talk about with it. That the reason I think it was so hard for me. Is because I was really messed up. And I was really I was living in my mind almost completely, and it was really hard to lose control of it for basically two straight days. which is what it was with a bogus. It's absolutely insane, but afterwards. for numerous months I because I was depressed. Beforehand I wasn't depressed anymore. All of a sudden it was just like this. The switch off and all of a sudden. I noticed how beautiful everything was where I lived, and all of a sudden I I was just really good, and it gave me enough time to start working on myself even more which I've? been doing now for years and years now. So in the end like I wouldn't take back during the Boga, but man. That was hard. and Leila's got so many amazing stories about stuff like what wherever you want to calm. PSYCHEDELICS are planned medicine. And he actually has a very interesting background so I. WANNA! Get into that as well I. Know a bit about your background about being struck by lightning. And that sort of thing, so what you just introduce yourself to the audience who doesn't know you know a lot of people who've gone to book do but many don't so just let let people know who you are. Okay. That's kind of a hard thing. My experience with Shamanism, as started early because of this lightning that struck me when I was when you rolled. And in I, was born here in this area in Mexico. Where the SHAMANS are struck by lightning, and this is kind of the house the. Knows who is going to be a showman? So although I am not born as an indigenous? Worked living next to an indigenous community. The indigenous community took me and taught me so. Because I think if I, if I remember correctly like your fear. Family was killed by lightening. Is that right? No all the the other people who were around when. Died Yeah. Whether and I were struck by lightning, so both my dad and myself started. Learning shamanism and doing the. They. Holding that responsibility for the community here and doing a. The initiate missions and their fear. So? That's how it started here with the community Mexico. And then began working also where there, we'd ready radical community the Wichita community for the once more with the ODI. And also I went back to Columbia, which is actually where my family was originally from. And there I learned a lot about your Wasserstein. The Amazon and Andy. Vogue, I've been going a lot to govern. where, so when we? We're doing game more like a treatment. And after that I've been going twice a year couple on more sooner, nobody boycott and be around the community. That's kind of been doing the ranch. Wow I wasn't aware you've been going to Africa to do that and that's where I understand. A bogus I came from so that's very interesting and. You're you're seemed to always be on the go. You just came back from Colombia I. Believe and I think he probably just came back for an Arca POCO. You're basically going around doing these things all the time. Yeah so right now. What I'm mostly doing is taking people to the indigenous community. So I make because him pilgrimage, so it's Because I think that Well. You know I think we that. Indigenous communities and mythical communities called certain tools that can help us. Connect. Directly with some kind of knowledge or fundamental source. So! I'm trying to take people to these communities in I. GonNa Groups, so we to Amazon we go to the desk third. We talked to govern, and so I'm I'm kind of all all around all the time. Yet. Are. You still there working with Berry. Not Anymore not. Ready yet. Okay I wasn't aware of that. That was he was that was basically his thing that I went to for the gainer originally. And he's been actually been in. Time, so before I want to ask you a number of things, but before I get into that I just want you to kind of maybe explain to. Your average Westerner out there. Who doesn't know anything about these things and they've heard this is crazy. What you're using plant medicines and Why why should a person from the West from the US or that kind of a person be interested in these things? What what kind of things can they get a value from us? Well, I mean. A lot of things and in many different ways. I'd say in terms of anarchy. It's a lot you know they. We live like in a kind of monoculture. Like you know, everyone is doing the same thing and we're. We're taught to think alike and you know. Do the same all of that. the. And I think there's like a rational way of awakening, when or when it's just too bad that it's just like really hard to not see it, and it's like okay, but then there's also kind of a we can call it. Trends personal kind of experience of awakening. or or a kind of experience where you can connect directly to knowledge, this is called noisy, so it's like the direct connection is not when someone is telling you. You know you should think. You should know it's like you connect directly to strum thing to the mystery to knowledge to the truth or to source different different ways of calling it. and I think this is really really essential. I mean of course and psychedelics are are one of those really good tools to to do that. nowadays in in modern knife, and because they're very quick, you could do it through meditation. You can do it through fasting Freyer. Sometimes, it happens through accidents or you break up with a partner. Sometimes it can happen through a very strong sexual experience when you kind of you know the the. This this kind of a recall it everything was put in in our minds, and in that kind of. A crumbles, and then you wake up when you kind of see more, it can happen in many ways but I think that's psychedelics is are really really. Good way of doing that and of this kind of a death the death. And then a kind of rebirth in that's very important where we're at deconstruction is very important also to deconstruct. The idea that we've been taught to think and imposed, and this is something that's psychedelics can do very well to construct, also emotional impersonal things. Are you know addictions? addiction think ways of thinking in dines and think that are important to deconstruct and they're not. They're deconstruction. It's a lot about just inside and. Connecting with this sort of knowledge. For me personally. A book. It was one of my first sort of major ones. I started with Iowa. And I did it a couple of times, and actually got some really amazing. Insights from it, but it wasn't what I was expecting. 'cause I've heard a lot of people saying. Oh, I do I. Go to these other worlds I, make dragons and this kind of stuff, but I was like I was just in this dark black room for what seemed like years, until finally got one small message, which wasn't even that small was massive for. For me and my message was let others help you. I was so headstrong, and and I guess proud or I thought I, had to be the strong man, and I would never let anyone helped me and Iowa which they call the grandmother, and after having done a a number of these things I can see why it's called that because I've also done. What's the other one that they call the grandfather? I've done that a couple of times as a you. Know Not Peyote but it's very similar. Don't so it's like Pedro Yeah. What's? Yeah Yeah, and I could totally feel the difference and actually really liked the the grandfather one a lot more because he's a lot nicer in. The GRANDMAS pretty strict and. But for me personally what I what what it was I think looking back on the this whole journey for me started about five years ago is I was just so in my mind, and so in this world, and could not see out of it, and couldn't get out of it, and that's why was drinking a lot I think is because I had find an escape. Because I was just too. I was trapped in my own mind constantly. And I became worse and worse than depressed and unhappy, and all that kind of stuff, because I couldn't get out of it and what I what I've found for me, personally was the psychedelics force you to get out of it, and it's like the shock therapy sort of thing that once you take it whether it's a drink of Iowa Oscar. Some you know in a pill form the the San Pedro whatever it is. From that point on for the next few hours, you have no control over where you're GonNa go and you have to. Sort of like a humble yourself or kind of like allow this thing to. Guide you in that moment. Take you on this sort of thing so after doing I WASPA- and Boga Able Gain I've DMZ with you. It's kind of like a surprise. That you showed up at my house. I forgot I. said I wanted to do it. We did it that was great. I have to say and I want to get into a little bit about all these things. I think they're all so interesting, but the DMZ for me was so nice because it's so short. It's like fifteen minutes and. For me. A. Just just do. It was a five. Actually very different from the include. ARCA sorry like I'm not not an expert I the stuff, so please correct me whenever I say anything wrong, but. That was so nice because it was like twenty minutes 'cause. I was like five hours, but for me it seemed like days, and a Bogo was like two days, and it seemed like two hundred years to me like I was begging it to stuff at the end and. but I needed it, so it was sort of like a thing I needed, but All these things are kind of different. Suffer what I would say. The people who are listening if you are. SORTA like a Westerner who can't really get out of your own mind, and you don't even know that you can't get out of Euro Mike because you don't know what it's like to be out of your mind. And that's what you kind of call the EGO death a little bit like he kind of you. Lose your your sense of this self. of you who you are like. My name is Jeff. I'm a white guy from Canada all that's gone. I'm just A. Soul there and I have to just get used to that so I've seen so many people and I always think like the people who need to do these things the most are the people who will never do it because when I talked to some of them, and they're just like all like. So I. You know I'm so stressed and all this custom McMahon. You really need to do some like psychedelics or something, and they're like no I, am, too. You know it's like man, the one who needs it the most. So, like from what I just said there. What would you say to say? The people there have never tried it. Well what are you just reminded me of a phrase? which he said L. D. produce psychosis in those who have never taking it. Those who have never taken? It are always afraid of it. And are kind of more psychotic than actually those who are taking second. So and he actually had another phrase called think for yourself, which in authority, and this is something that came from the sixteenth from from the read the discovery of the. When, there was a lot of this This Thing Vietnam and you know all of that that that started going on. I think I should clarify there because you know I I'm I'm started mentioning Synthetic Psychedelic that. There's a really big difference between taking psychedelics in a recreational forum and taking them in a therapeutic form. and Yeah because somehow. I. Don't know just the setting and and the the mindset are really really important when you do. This distract and. So also there you know this is something that also has to be handled in careful way and responsible way. And You need you need a really good mindset in thin. Ideally, someone who can you know can guide you through or support you? Do the bathroom if you need, give you and when you need You know this kind of. Support. so I I just I I started talking about something else, but. It's fine. I, just interested in general, but all this stuff, yeah! I mean I wouldn't say that. Everyone has to try psychedelics Lucas You know that's like meditation, but I think that it's extremely useful. Lake Meditation for example and Yeah I agree with what you say that you know how how a lot of people should should try this and I guess I should mention also that psychedelics of of the different drugs psychedelics is kind of drugs. We could call them or plans that produce addiction rather. They're usually good against the diction. So even I don't know if you knew even for example, Elliot, the was one was used a lot for treating alcoholism when it was legal and. Of the two guys who opened alcoholic anonymous actually at a session with Lizzie, which which was really important for him, and is supposed to be one of the twelve steps, thirteen or something. This some letters with June about this and. At the end they didn't do it, but you know things like Wasco are being used a lot for treating addictions and also other kinds of treatments. there's there's different centers for this. Of course, he Bulga and There's some studies actually of in mushrooms used also to treat. TOBACCO ADDICTION That's-that's in in New York University. And yes, so usually addictive substances kind of lower your serotonin while psychedelics. Posted Higher, and you know different things. They're not addictive. They didn't do not cause with role actually usually when you take them, it's like you. You don't want to do it very often or Arabia. Not Do it again. So yeah. Yeah that's sort of where I'm at actually haven't done anything to psychedelic in a while. Because I did. I was a few times and I did a Bogo which was insane. then I did that five. Emmy Od M. T. I did some mushrooms I did San. Pedro something like that one of those. And then after that I was kind of like. Wow, I'm like a million times better than I was before. And most of the experiences were not that easy for me, so I'm Mike, okay I'm good for awhile I'm just GONNA leave. It I, don't. Hear the calling much although I did want to let you know that if you are bringing five emmy owed emt this year. We'll get into what you're doing this year that I might try that one, but I don't want to do. I watched great things just too too big of a thing now and I'm pretty happy with where I'm at I. Don't WanNa like almost screw it up kind of a thing. But it also is very. It's very hard for me to do those things. So that goes to your point. Yeah, it's not like you do I get all of a sudden. You're doing it every day. You can't like it's too intense. It's and it's. Not something that's. What I think some people might do it kind of like the they call them psycho. They kind of do it for the thrill of going into their mind, and all that kind of stuff, and they do get a thrill out of it that sort of thing but. For me, it was just like ten years of. Therapy in about five hours it was very very tiring, and and a lot of it was hard to do, but once it was done I felt a lot better so. I said to people in the past. If you're thinking about doing these things, and and you feel like you want to then deathly give it a try, because it's kind of like a calling when I I was I was really Kinda like at the bottom of the barrel sorta thing very almost suicidal depressed drinking lots. Didn't WanNa live anymore and? I just. You know? All of a sudden actually remember all of a sudden I saw Iowa popping up all over the place. It's like you know the universe whatever you WANNA. Call it which is putting in front of me. All the time and I didn't even know what the word was at the time. This is like five years ago wasn't as well known then and after seeing. Seeing it a few times. What is this? I looked it up but as I. Oh, an opioid it helps with depression and helps this sort of stuff and eventually. I just went and did it so I kind of like it kind of called me and really when I think a lot of people should consider these things when they kind of feel that calling. Yeah will. Yeah definitely sometimes, it's very hard. Experience usually win. Harder experience you also. Derive. More. Out of it But it can also be a a light experienced in softer experience, so you can, you can take lake for example small cup of a West. And, this is something that that usually for example when we serve, we give a little bit, and then you can take a little bit more a little bit more, so you can kind of feel. How point you how far you want to go. into the thinking. Confrontation! Yeah! Yeah very interesting, so I want to ask you. What because I know? You're doing a number of different things this year at an ARC POCO? which is coming up in just a couple of days, so we're on our way. They're pretty much in the next few days. But I also want to ask you because you've been doing this for five years and I've heard over the years, so many people have come up to me and they've said. I DID IOWA SCA three years ago to. Improve my life. It changed my life dramatically. I'm a different person since then so. I'm sure you've heard some of these experiences from some people Why don't you give us a few of your experience? My experience my personal experience. Or what you've heard from other people as well, but you can give us your experiences you. Know the. Crazy. yeah, I remember the first time participated. We've made a the. You watched the ceremony yet in our CUCO. It was after the conference and we actually. made it in the same room the hall where all the conference have. And everyone was really happy about any had a very nice view of the ocean. That was in the Grand Hotel. Yeah and everyone was They told me that because it happened in the same hall where they had been there for. You know all these days they sending in thinking was like it was really integrity. Really you know, integrate everything that happened and reflect and and and There was a lot of also I feel like a nice group. Cohesion cohesion like that. And and making those those really night remember that. And Yeah Yeah I. I've also heard a really good commentary actually you mentioned if I was doing five million. And and the actually the Jaguar the that we're doing. The ceremony are five. PM. So the. The this is like the the alkaloid. Of Three. It's the top of a tree from the Amazon. We we cook it and there's a process. And that becomes a you know, and and that the the the main alkaloid it's. Which is actually also what you had that time. How. How was your experience that that? Was Great. Actually it was kind of funny because I was so stressed and busy with an cocoa and I'd forgot that we had talked. And you said you were GONNA come by my place and give me some. I forgot all about it. So I'm just sitting there I'm trying to like de-stress from America and suddenly you're there and you're like. Don't you? Remember I was like Oh manically forgot and I think he blew it up my nose or something right was. Was that the one? Yeah, yeah, so? I was like okay. Well, let's do it and so I did it and yeah, it was it was. It was actually my best psychedelic experience because it wasn't there was no. It wasn't torture us at all. It was I saw all kinds of symbols. Millions of symbols, every symbol like the Islamic. Religion the the cries the like it was just all over the place. And I saw like every religion and history, and all kinds of animals, and I remember it was very fast, and it was like not a tortuous at all. And I was kind of like just really enjoying I was like I was like in this big cut like library of everything that's ever happened in history of the universe sort of thing, and every symbol of the symbols were really what I noticed is I just could see every symbolize wall symbols are everywhere and starting to think about that and I remember to this day that. Near the end I started going like this and like. And, and then I started to come out of and you're just sitting there. Watching me and you said what was that? Why did you do that Nice I said to you? Because I realized I had all this baggage and all this sort of like old. Like. What would you call it like? Dogma and things were taught in, and they're just clinging to me, and I wanted to get him off I. wanted to be free of it all, and that's what I was doing in that moment so. It was nothing too. Super Lake changed my life sort of thing, but it was Kinda like this kind of like quick little reminder of who you are where you are. What's going on and just like? Don't let this stuff you know. Cling to you too much. That's what I got from my experience. Yeah We've talked to numerous times. You like I've got crazy stories about you. That when I was doing the Bogan Man. I was in between day one day. Two and we're both today to I remember I was telling you guys. I'm like I can't do it I can't do it I. Think you and there was a girl her name and you guys said you just have to your like halfway through now and trust us to the second time. It's not going to be hard and I was just like I was drained. I was like I can't do it. I think I'm GonNa die, and but I decided to do it android before I to do it. You got all happy. And I was like. What's he's happy about and they went. He's he's about to go to a sundance and I was like. Oh, like a dance or something and then. You don't know what a sundance. No. And they're like he's not. He's going to go to the forest or something for like a week. Not Eat not even drink water, and then he's going to hang himself through. Through hooks through his chest from a tree all day. And you look like you're like Christmas time. You're like so happy. You're like I can't wait and when I heard what you were going to do. I'm like this guy's one interesting cat. I actually haven't done that in a while. I didn't lifetime though. That's from the LAKOTA soups tradition. And yeah, it's it's. It's kind of. It's pretty psychedelic, also because you know because you're not drinking water and and you're just doing ecstatic dancing all day all day for four days. It's it's about one week, but it's actually four days of ecstasy. And actually I was hitting the audio so during the death and Yeah, it's it's pretty good. Actually, have the. Hooks through your chest and hang from a tree, right. Yeah. Wow! That's be if I ever do. It'll be one of the last things I kinda do it's like I'm like last on my list of things. I want to try know that's a that's. It's hard on your body. And, and then also going to born and doing all guy there, it's also very hard. Because I've been going to a a pygmy village, so it's very very deep in the forest It's actually you have to arrive to Lebron. which is the capital which is already very far? Is You have to go through with you? But then from Libreville, really have to go two days now on car like just through the jungle. To Go and then there you right to the pygmy village. Then, and that's also very tough because you are. You're in the ground There's nothing they almost don't give you anything to eat, and you're eating. A lot of people I was actually the they say. I'm I'm I'm like white to this is lake how they say so. I would like the first foreigner. To tweety Boga there in in in that area, and actually the kids had never seen someone like meat, so they were scared something they would cry because. For Them? It's like if I was just like blue or Like just like what's happening? And and because I was a the the first four or white stew to eat, people got everyone came from really far away. The like really far, and there was hundreds of people looking at me in my initiation, and they gave me tons and tons and tons of Boga just because they went to see what happens in. How I would react. If I was different because you know. So that was that was a really really strong experience for me less well, and also the first time I did I gain also. That was very very strong. Because I had I took one tenth of the dose while I mean I, could those? which was already really strong for me I could I couldn't. Walk Anymore I could talk, but I couldn't walk and couldn't get up or anything, so they. They carried me to to the bed, and then they gave me ten times that amount and that was absolutely. That I couldn't talk after that and I was just. You know three days. That was very very strong, but very powerful and very helpful while. He and my experience was crazy. Like a year sounds like even crazier which I can't even imagine but I was reading an entire book. In the experience and I was actually typing it so every. Come to a little bit. My fingers be going like this. Because I was reading an entire book and I would actually go on the Internet in my job experience. And I'd be like Oh, I need to look up this girl 'cause I need to include a reference to her in the book and I'd read on Wikipedia. This is all happening my brain. All, about okay, that's information I played. The funny part is seamless went on for days. And finally I finished the book and I'm like Yes and I'm like Oh crap. Where do I save it? And I was trying to actually trying to upload it to my email in my own head. Rate as it was starting to wear off I'm like I can't loses book. It's the best book ever and you know, and then like a thousand other things going on like the data Boga was that. was that was wild but whole. That was hard because you can't get out of it and you're just in it for days. And you've got somebody crazy stories I. Remember you once told me like you and your friends would like drink. Iowa Oscar for like a week and lock yourself a in a pitch. Black Room. So that never that starting. Tony I used to have A. Dark dark dark room for retreats. Just completely dark, and it has to have a special ventilation, so so there's air because it's completely sealed and has a double door, so you can bring food inside. And yeah, I I was I was giving some treatments. There because darkness brings up the empty from inside. So so so that's something interesting, actually the MTA, which West has in the empty. And the Jaguars has five mental. The those two kinds of the MTA are produced by the by by our bodies naturally. I know how how do you heard this? He I have. Okay so I usually when you're born and when you're dying is when there's like very big amount of this being produced and and so when you're going to darkness, because of the pineal gland in darkness starts to be activated, and it starts to produce I the monotony noelene than an starts producing emt, so you can can have like Ouaga software your West experience, just being in darkness a and then. Well after the fifth day you start kind of experiencing the. Using also title game and five minutes off, see DMC also in the dark room, too. But I mean it's. It's like something we talked like. Wow, it's crazy, but also we should mention that I mean it's very deep, and and you can. really have profound insight about your life. And and Maybe at least maybe once in a lifetime thing. But but I think those loans are really really important to kind of you know. Check back on because some things we're leaving and we're just. Like what you were saying, just going and going and going and you know it's really good to stop and kind of look backwards, and and all of this, so yes, yeah, absolutely, so, what are you going to be offering this here? Cocoa, I? It's Iowa Oscar right, and then what else? Yeah so we have three your west coast ceremonies. We have one priority ceremony, so the whistle Sherman's coming and they're going to be. Offering, something you already and and three Jaguar ceremonies each one you the. So. We didn't talk much about pay. Odia is actually one I've never done. So why don't you talk a little bit that? Yeah well beauty, essentially, the first one that I started learning from I started eating it when I was tenure sold with my dad and. My, teacher. And it's it's like you said it's very similar to some federal. Both have mescaline. It's it's not as intense like Right, now like boom, but it takes longer so. I was four to six hours. The Jaguars to win our. And Beauties can ten hours, so it's it's softer, but it's longer and Yeah You know it's kind of hard to describe them. I would say maybe like. It was more like words more maybe with zero. Tony Naked Dreams. You're you're kind of in a dream and like this and beauties more like a? More empathic and. Like more body sensations. and More like in the now with the body and kind of you know, you can feel your heart Dole, and you can feel that like this kind of thing so. That's kind of more more of the the experience. Sounds quite similar to the San Pedro that I did. It was about that length. Wasn't that intense I was actually doing it on the beach with someone. And we started like in the early evening and three or four hours in all of a sudden, it seemed like time stopped. And all the sudden, it felt like I was we're surrounded? We're not cookbook, so we had the beautiful views and every direction, and all of a sudden it just seemed like everything stopped, and it felt like we. We're on like a movie set, and we're the only two people in the movie. But it felt really calm like that's why I was saying about if Felli. Fatherly sorta like everything's okay peaceful. Everything's find that kind of thing. Whereas the Iowa to me was a lot more. You know like you know. Wake Up. Like you know. Wake up stupid I'M GONNA? Wake you up sort of a thing. This one seemed a lot. Lot SORTA like. More fatherly sort of a thing. Yeah. It vary very so much. Last year I think there was a someone who went to all the ceremonies and I remember that he said that the one he liked the most, but you know it vary so much for other people. It wasn't so so it was such an important experience. so Yeah. Sometimes, you need kind of medicine in sometimes you need another kind. Of Medicine. and. Everyone's different everyone has different experiences so That's one of the kind of weird things about it must. Be You doing this with a lot of people? It's like you know everyone's going to have a different experience, so some people might be like kind of upsets. Why heard this person had this experience and I didn't have that. It's like well. Person? And those a lot of the times the first time you're doing this, it's hard to understand how it works. Sometimes. The more you you understand and you can get more out of it. Sometimes, it's the opposite sometimes like the first time it's wow, and then it's not as strong. I guess similar to Sexuality Somehow sometimes. Maybe the first experience very good and then. Something, like the first experience is not very good. Then you can understand right. Yeah So from my experience, maybe you can tell me what you think, but for someone who's never done any of this stuff, but you're interested. I would suggest you just try to five Emilio I because it's short and not very tortuous. And maybe the second one if you want is like the page, are they peyote? And then if you really WanNa, go for the intense experience. I think that'd be Iowa Oscar. Will. For. What I feel. Is that actually the the Jaguars. Intense want. Which yes, but I I it very, so like in in your case, you had like a really gentle experience. It wasn't like Cathartic, but many times. That's that's the one that's actually most are taking more more lakes strong. so it's like you know like doing your Waka, but. In all together just in one hour. So, but it's the party like this short very deep though it's very. so well the also. I mean maybe when you when you had. Your experience was very thick the glass. And whatever doing in an occupied who is giving small glasses out? Mention so also because we're in a in a setting of a conference and all that so. I I would say that the Odeon the Awad also with beauty. We will be drinking small amounts like this so if you want to be goals lower. I would say maybe those two because the Jaguar. It's all at once and and. Yeah. Cool so yes, so up there becoming POCO. Definitely if you're interested in stuff, check it out and. You know it's really hard to do this sort of thing normally. If you live in the US you basically almost can't I know some people do it in some places, but it's pretty illegal and most people don't do it, and then even if you do it, it's not really with good shamans and things like that and you pointed out. That's really important. And Year Year like one of the most famous Shamans Mexico and you've got a numerous of the. Way Call them critical people. The Which? Which? Which people so these are like? People have been doing it their whole lives. That sort of thing, and so it's not you know for the if you're going to the Amazon and do Iowa. You'RE GONNA spend a lot of he. And that's one of the place you should do it. Is You know go to places like authentic? And Scott the the good Shamans, and all that kind of stuff, but it's going to cost a lot of money, but if you're Caputo, you could just do it for a few hundred dollars in You know having experienced that way so. Where are you going to be doing all these things this year. Well actually I'll know on Saturday so. We, which is when I read Google. We'll check the site, but it's going to be. It's going to be somewhere in the hotel. So! Yeah, make a convenient. And also I mean it's. It's just nice to do it. Also in in the context of the conference. Because know doing it before can can help you plan Salat and and kind of get ready. You know and open because these these are. Really good tools to to open into. To be a win to twin side, and all of this, and also, or during an after, you know to just integrate and just reflect on everything else, so I think that that's pretty interesting and especially the kind of the community sent. Of. Doing this with with this community, which is also especially. Yeah that's what I hear a lot. I've never actually done it with the community I'm. Pretty busy and stressed that this I don't usually have the time or ability to do it with everyone else, but I might drop in on a DM T. one. If i. get the opportunity just for people who don't know who's GonNA NARC POLKA DOT com, and you can go to the tickets page, and under tickets you scroll down to ceremonies and We have let me scroll hair, so we have the tiger ceremony, so that's the. Oscar. And Jaguar is the DM T. And then the blue dear is I. Guess is the Peyote. Peyote is just one day. Yeah. Cool, so they're all two hundred fifty bucks, so that's pretty good. like I said. Try flying to the Amazon and see how much that costs you to do. All this kind of stuff and kind of cool to deal with a lot of fellow volunteerism anarchists and you actually told me I think someone was telling me it was you a couple years ago. You brought up some. Shamans from the Amazon and and I think it was us. Someone was saying that they kind of wanted to come up to our Kapoor to do it because they saw that the people at the event like an Arca Poker, the important people to change in this world in the way that it needs to be changed This was you who told me that. Yeah and I don't remember if it was me, but yeah, definitely and Yeah I think. We should involve a little bit more or or or can get involved with indigenous communities because they are really anarchy. Since forever and I'm also really interesting, re really interested right now in in For example in Columbia, there's. A special kind of law, which is indigenous law, and through this you can do a lot of things because they have pretty much like their own they can. They can change a lot in their territory, and this is also something really interesting that I'm kind of looking at. And and they they have they have You know the the anarchists. Communities that have a long tradition and knowledge. For many generations, so they they kind of understand a little bit how you know how how how this small communities works, and they have like a different kind of political view and A. Different kind of just just like. They have I think a lot of knowledge that we could use in terms of that. Actually yeah, last year for the Shamans that I brought. For two of them. They didn't even have birth certificate. So. It was kind of weird. We had to go and get birth certificate and they were like she was she was. Fifty five years old, and he was like seventy years old, and he had never had a birth certificate, or we had to get a pass or to be able to travel. Though? Yeah! Yeah, that's great. Hopefully we can get more involved in in those sort of communicate communities in the future, and we can talk about that when you're in book this year. If there's anything that we haven't mentioned that you want to mention, please do. And also for anyone out there, who's going to be Boko but not sure if they want to do it. But maybe they WANNA. Go and talk to you or maybe go see what it's like that sort of thing. How can they connect with you? So we can talk. Of course and we'll have like a standard also where. Some of the indigenous are going to be selling their aircraft. But They can't go and see because it's a very private, and you know just for the people who are participating because it's I would say you know you might want to cry. Things things when you're taking the medicine so. And we have musicians. They're also playing music and we'll have integration if someone needs to ration- after will. Have you know we also have sake therapists transversal therapists, not like everybody they they. They can kind of hold space for people who might need this after morning. And so so kind of around all that. Yeah, we can definitely talk. And and Yeah, if you're not sure if you want to go or something Yeah, you can just. Email me or or weaken. Find each other in the conference. From where cool yeah I didn't realize. A lot of these are almost before the conference, so the Iowa's February tenth twelfth, and then one after during on the sixteenth. and. The Jaguar which is the DMZ is February, thirteenth fourteenth and fifteenth, and then the. And actually we didn't mention this. Event retreat. We. You're also doing yeah. uh-huh forgot to mention that one. And and that's basically it's. It's using the transformational tools like electronic breath were ecstatic dance. Thing Fintech. move man the different things they did. With kind of the second delic tool. So it's, it's A. It's a very interesting I'd say creation there that I think that that would be the one I would recommend the most the most for people who have never taken psychedelics before. And or also, for people who want to learn how to how to travel better with these tools. That's worth three full days and. Will be really focusing a better one on one in you know more more more attention. Call so that's after the event I'm trying to see where the if that's even listed on here retreats maybe. We have. Too many things. I want to really simplify everything. To Stop. But anyway, yes, that sounds good, so maybe you might see me at the post retreat because after that I can finally relax a little bit after book. So. Yeah Yeah So. Balochistan Book Dot Com website. Anything you WANNA. Let people know about yourself like. Do you have a website or blog or like? Scarves. Yeah, we have a nonprofit. It's called the oncoming dacians. You can find uncover nation dot org. And that's world, so we're doing the pilgrimage. We're going to indigenous communities, so people who have already been in at and a couple of going. To a ceremony than you want to go deeper, and and and share with these communities, or go to Africa or go to to the Amazon and we're also just being all kinds of projects there with psychedelic research We're doing for example a project of Waka for peace in consequence. giving. What got different? The war party. So that that's a really really good project and we have different projects they. Through the nonprofit? Wow! That sounds cool I've linked to that all down below. If you know anyone out there, who's kind of like? Depressed or has addiction problems or just not all that happy in life for stuff like that definitely, show this video with them. Because a lot of these tools that we just talked about here can help a lot of people. And if going to be a book, Oh definitely, check out all the stuff and I'll see you in just a couple of days Leila looking forward to it.

School Police Departments, in twenty of the largest cities failed to meet minimum standards of basic international human rights guidelines. The Free Thought Project reports that the report indicated that compared with many other places in the world. Police are given far more discretion to use deadly force in the United States. The report also noted that police in the US or authorized use brute force arbitrarily, which they say is a common tool of tyrannical and despotic governments. The researchers behind the study tried to determine how police policy in the US compares with International Human Rights Standards.

You get to or have to hear us. It's only fair, right? got. More. Big Brands are turning their backs on facebook. As the number of companies, boycotting facebook increased again as brands including four denny's Volkswagen coca-cola Levi, Strauss and company dockers, many many more announce that they all are halting advertising campaigns on the Anti Social Media Platform. facebook makes nearly all of its money from ads remember we are the product, so advertising to us is how they make money. They raked in more than seventy billion dollars in revenue last year seventy be with a billion. In revenue facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg taking a page out of the twitter handbook, stating during a facebook live video last week that the antisocial network will begin labeling content from elected officials that it deems newsworthy, but that would otherwise violate its policies specifically, facebook said it would expand its policies around hate speech and prohibit a wider category of hateful language and ads on their site A- posted violates facebook's rules, but is from an important political figure. According to what they say, we'll get a label saying it was deemed newsworthy enough to remain. uh-huh! Yeah, it's not clear exactly what these labels will look like. When facebook will start adding them to post, or how strictly facebook will interpret their own new rules, Zuckerberg said the company would label some of the content that we leave up and exactly what is Mark Zuckerberg's news background that enables him to determine what's newsworthy. He's multi-billionaire. That's his background. And at least they're not making any money off me right now. Because my my quote, unquote few days off that God for so site. My fourth week now WHO HOLY COW! It's been the best most stress-free four weeks of my life so far. Yeah I had to respond to a couple of other punk. The, other day too, and it's like you know it's not even worth unfriendly. And generally don't block people unless you absolutely deserve to be blocked, but by all means you know it, just it. Just people with you know if you don't want a response to your stupid opinion, don't post a stupid opinion. That's the way I see it. I miss the days when we can just go to facebook and look at the pictures of people's annoying cats and Oh hate that, but you know. Used to be a place to be able to escape reality, and now there seems to be more quote. Unquote reality on social media than anywhere else anti social media. That's my. And it was the last anti social media I had. I gave up on instagram about a year and a half ago and you've never been on twitter been on twitter snapchat except for the funny filters that you and your son do periodically. Sent, a snap I've just I've we've taken pictures with the filters and saved them the phone? But. You've never send I've never ticked talked to whatever the Chinese anyway, so it'd be that the. Chinese companies I did my space though Oh. You did okay, but you probably still. Checked a couple months ago that the page is still active, I have a log in, but it's still there. For. Those of you don't know what my space is. Don't worry. Speaking of Tiktok days after Tiktok users claim that they fueled the lower than expected turnout at president trump's rally in Tulsa. Oklahoma, recently, they have a new target. The president's online store this time tick Tucker's I. Guess that's what they're called. Encouraging fellow users to employ a tactic called shopping cart of bandon moment. In which they go to in this case, the trump twenty twenty campaign online store fill up their cart with a bunch of merchandise that they have no intention of purchasing. And then they leave. Don't these Brat kids realized that doing that means nothing for the most part shopping carts on any sight. Don't mean anything until you check out. You can put whatever you want in a shopping cart, and if you don't check out meeting, put a credit card so forth by this stuff. It doesn't go anywhere. It doesn't mean anything, so they abandoned the shopping cart. Filling up your card at target and leaving it in the middle of the aisle somewhere. And at some point some some day, some employees yeah or cast member or whatever they call themselves is going to say. Wait that same cards been here now for a week I. Don't think there's really a customer looking for something else coming back to the car. Yeah I know. The layaway. The layaway for and then it becomes a go back or whatever they call it where the stuff just goes back on the shelf, but it's not the same thing as physically loading up cart with God, forbid perishable food or something, and just abandoning it. This digital nothing happens to it so i. WANT WANNA waste. Yeah, it makes you feel better. You want to waste time going to any site and do shopping cart abandonment. Well, then there you go, you've done your duty. When. We were looking for a card Shuffler for a game nights, and you put of six hundred dollars card shuffler and my Amazon Cart. I wouldn't have done that. I don't do Amazon. Probably could've sold that. Six hundred dollars card shuffler somebody else, but it was sitting in that cart for like three days. Yeah, that's true. Probably because it was almost like virtually removing an item from the shelf, so no one else could buy it. And putting it in a virtual shopping cart, and just to tell you that that's the way you imagine these cards. Work is the way they work. Because I've done that. I've put an item in their forgotten about it. I didn't buy at that one day. I've gone back a few days later beside them is no longer available, so it obviously didn't take it off and reserve it to me because it was in my car. That's true. So I guess. Maybe some of these kids think that. If they put a bunch of stuff in the cart that nobody else could get it well, go ahead. Keep thinking and keep wasting your time. Would you buy a phone without a charger? I'm a half too soon. Because reportedly apple's iphone, twelve will be sold without a power adapter or ear buds. Apparently, the company will offer a twenty watt adapter as an optional accessory. Apple is hoping that eliminating the charger and your buds could help offset the higher production costs associated with five G. support and rumors are circulating about a future iphone that will ditch all ports altogether entirely. If apple decides to make a Portland iphone. You could only charge it of course on a wireless charging pad. So good luck with having one of those available all the time you go to a friend's house and you say. Do you have a cord because my phone's running low? Yes, sure you're plugging not a problem. Do you have a wireless pad? No I have one at my office or Not One in the car, and that's where your phone's dying or something. Good luck. My niece was over my house. around Christmas time and needed a charter phone and she didn't even realize that she she had wireless charging capabilities until he stuck on wireless charger and it started charging you. Oh, I didn't even know that. A lot of people are like that. Of course. It took apple forever to catch up with us. android folks with charging, but they did finally catch up. and. But a lot of people don't realize their phones can do that now. What I started being able to do that. Nine eight, the eight, there was no. Other wasn't an hour, they they. They play from from Microsoft's book. where they skipped the yeah, they went from eight to ten. Yeah, true. But it's nine wasn't there because seven eight nine Y- Geez. Dad Jokes. And I initially thought that this whole apple thing with them sowing the without the adopted was it was a really bad idea, and then I thought back to well. Gee, you know how many of those power cubes do I have sitting in that drawer at home I've got. So, it makes sense you don't need it. Everybody's got a drawer full of them. Well especially with the lightening cable that was introduced iphone, whatever way back that everybody's got lightning cables, but if they eliminate ports altogether, you've got no plugs, no place to plug it in. It's only going to be a wireless pad and forget ear buds. Because again, the twelve will not even have ear buds with them. So, everything should be Bluetooth ear buds which that makes sense. which although the problem with it coming into their saying that now? The phone will just come with the lightning to USB cable. Now the problem is is that drawer full of power cubes? Aren't you USCC? That's also true so there. You have to be stuck by their expensive adapter, so you end of course just at when you finished. Investing in all those USB cables for your various devices that won't be any ports anyway, and you'll have to just go wireless, and then you'll have a drawer full of USB cables. That'll be so typical as well. Barry. In Windsor Ontario lessons on am eight hundred. CK L. W. Barry Welcome into tomorrow starting to figure out what to do here I've got a PC computer. That's about seven years old, and I haven't apple tablets trying to defeat if I should go with the new apple tablet. And do away with the PC or get a new PC and stick with stuff that I have some not totally sure which we should go well, Berry. It's our pleasure to try to help you out there. It's cool that you're by digital at point because you might want to stay that way as well, but I wonder. How do you find your current tablets? Cover your use cases. That's really what's going to determine the best course of action for you. Computers have. have been reverting to work gear for a while. Most people can handle what they need to do. With the phone or tablet, the vast majority of the time, so as much as tablets may not be capable of covering every use case that a computer can. They may very well be enough for you. Perhaps just be prepared to take a trip to the public. Library and borrow a computer. If one day you find something that your tablet just can't do and it's. It's very likely having said that streaming social media email general web browsing basic documents, even all of those are covered, and usually well covered by most tablets, and now if you're building a more complex documents or using heavier duty software, you might still want a PC. One thing to note in your case is that you're still exists, so if you do replace it with a new tablet, you can still keep it around. In case you run into a rare tasks that. That? Your tablet can't handle and use it for that, and it really depends on what you do with your computer, but replacing a PC with a tablet is less difficult and unrealistic now than it's ever been. Yeah, if you've got some additional input for Berry, maybe you've been through the same experience. Let us know what you did and how it worked out for you, so barry everyone else.

Our next guest is with a platform that. That features all kinds of products mostly from small businesses, and of course delivers them right to your door. The creative director of the gromit Mike Pauley welcome into tomorrow Mike. How are you Sir Hey Dave? I'm doing Grayson crabby. It's a pleasure I've learned from over the years that the gromit always got really cool stuff available. Tell me if you will. How that all started? And then let's get into some of the NEAT products you've got. We've been around for about twelve years. We started win. our founders realized that a lot of easing things that came out of you know. Businesses were coming from small businesses and noticed that. A lot of the big box. Retailers wouldn't take the risk of sort of these innovative and amazing. Awful products because they sometimes. A little bit more each. into some that sort of need the came up to say. Hey, how can we service? He small businesses and bring up these amazing products that really feel the whole in people's lives We've been doing for twelve years. We've gotten amazingly good at finding a you know these products and and small businesses and helped launch household names like. And Swell and villa stream, so it's really a passion of ours to to find these businesses find products and bring it to people and that's been our mission for twelve years. And how is it that you find the goodies I? Mean what what makes your decision to say? Let's carry this product we we know a lot of folks were like whatever this might be. How do you make those decisions? Yeah, we'll start with you know we have an amazing customer base who is excited and they look for these types of things that when we find them they do a great job of supporting those businesses, but we have an entire team that's dedicated to just finding these small businesses, finding these amazing products, and they have a pretty large breasts of requirements that they're looking for and then during that process they come in work hands on with them playing with them. We're looking at them vetting them. and It's a really rigorous process, but we have a team that just passed it abou- finding amazing things and bringing it to people. And of course you do have amazing things, and that's what I think is so cool about the gromit. You guys got some of the things that are off. The beaten path is a fair way to say it. That's totally fair, and that's and that's purposeful. Mu, we find that these small businesses create amazing things and and we're not going to create Chinese. Knock off of them or anything like that, so you end up getting these really unique products and and you know we call them. Sometimes, the can't live without. when I get it, you said gang. How did I do X Y and Z without this tech gadget or this tool? I think it's really kind of amazing, and we've got over three thousand and products that are that are like that and give us an idea of some of the ones that are selling in a very popularly every some of these guys you got to have. It can't believe I didn't have it kind of thing. Know sometimes It's really amazing. Sometimes, there's small things that you don't think about you know. We have some amazing for example like Bluetooth lights that are fantastic for the outdoors. They have beautiful glows that well designed and it just looked beautiful You can't find anywhere else. And then all the way down to something small like a special glass cleaner for your device You know we see those products you know elsewhere, but we have really interesting versions of them that clean at a much better rates they catch much nicer to your devices, and so they're just really well-made in softball So, we have small things like that We have other amazing things that you know are sort of a combination of. hand-held traffic using tax example we have these storybook play games for kids. Where this whole product is actually made in like three D. software, it's Super Techie, and then it's Three D. printed in these story book, you know steamatic's like like goldilocks and things like that for kids to play with, so it's like this starts really tacky in in high end and then. Comes out and created as normal playtoy pretty amazing. I'm looking at just scrolling down from the GROMIT DOT com I'm seeing things like self-balancing hover shoes. Even subtly. was such thing, but that's very cool I. Mean it's just under two hundred bucks, but if you can stroll around just and their their shoes. Basically, it's not like you're writing segue that is no longer being made or something. These are very cool and you course highlight small businesses that have some of these special qualities and special unique items, and that's one of the things that I think deserves a lot more attention. And you guys do just that. Absolutely fact everything on our side is for small businesses and that's. You know again. It's part of our twelve year mission that we've been on supporting the shops. you know some of the products like we have? Many products are about sustainability. For example we have this an age amazing laundry eggs that can replace a whole year's worth of detergent so super sustainable and you can also see tech innovations in different areas of our catalog, I mean the the amount of innovation that happens in the garden and yard. Space is incredible and something. That I learned coming here. This attack that goes in there to create new devices and new tools. It's really fantastic And one of our favorites for the summer. Dave is the we have this great Mamata. That's Bluetooth that. You put into your food and you can just walk away. It's got a great APP and you can just check the temperature in your food without worrying about getting burned or or. You know creating flavors imparting flavors onto your food, if anything like that, so it's amazing all the areas that you can find tech, and it's just everywhere across our catalogs, in which what's neat about even that item that you just mentioned to is I'm finding more and more things that let's say are microwavable or whatever that say when the food comes out. Make sure that it's one hundred and sixty five degrees as well. How am I GONNA? Know that I put it in the followed your instructions i. put it in for six minutes. Whatever and Now, I gotTa have a thermometer, but that's where the device like you mentioned comes in Handy and find. It's the right temperature I get it i. don't WanNa. Be Sick of course but. They give you these. Well then, why don't you include a thermometer with it? If you want me to make sure, but yes I'm glad you mentioned. Wave exactly exactly for sites I'm glad you also mentioned gardening because gardening and tech, a lot of people would say well. They're completely different ends of the spectrum. Not so there's so many cool products that will help you in your gardening efforts, whether it's a tool or a divisor or something to measure the rain. So you know if you're getting enough water for your your plans or any number of things. And even other outdoor items a wearable golf GPS range finder now. I don't play golf, but I imagine those that do. This is something I'm looking at it. Just clips on on your hat on your ball cap your golf at I guess, and it gives you by GPS. Arranged finder what you want to know where your ball went now far away of little goodies like that can make a difference in your life. Yet, totally the and and those are the amazing things we have There's actually a surprising amount of innovation. That's sort of happening around sports intact You mentioned the golf. You know there's a lot of running innovation we have these amazing led blue lights. Bluetooth lights that you can use for running at night and It is amazing to see these invasions, and then they're coming from small businesses which you know we find just even more exciting. You know that you you you by very sophisticated, high end product, and so good about it, too knowing that you're supporting. Great Entrepreneurs Oh absolutely which I think is one of the big differences between you guys, and like Amazon or even Oetzi because you know. Yeah, they they both have some small business related stuff, but it's more about the bigger companies in the bigger products, and the things that you're more familiar with and terrific. Maybe you get a decent price, but you're not necessarily supporting your small businesses. Your neighborhood businesses things of that nature. I'm imagining. That's a reason that the GROMIT can stand out even more. One hundred percent I. Mean you know s? He doesn't amazing job of elevating sort of smaller makers in inclusively threads the line for handcrafted items.

Great hand aid quality major say products, but a lot of our tackling innovation products come are a great fit for the ground. You wouldn't see the on the and you know typically if you are selling on Amazon, Amazon Mike kind of like you know baked their own version and then sort of under sell you a little bit, but the best thing about the gravity is when you shop.

It's changed a lot of buyer behavior, so you know historically been really success for success before says has changed especially over the course of a few months as people are quarantine denied side So we see a lot of and we have a lot of sort of innovation around sanitation have a lot of new products around UV light sanitizing We just launched it. two or three recently that sold out within hours and We you know it's great products actually back because we promote.

We've seen a lot of great product selling out particularly with food. which is I know you know a little bit different than what most people, but when you're inside, one of the best things to do is eat and try new things, and so you know we have kitchen gadgets and things like that as well, but you know a lot of people get into bread making, which is now historically been a big area for us, but we're seeing people have fun and and byproducts there. Oh, and plus the house smells so good when you're baking. There's reason enough right there. Even! If you don't want the carbs or can't have the CARBS, it's still just smells so good.

That's DAX COM dot com Joel in Raleigh North. Carolina listens on Newsradio, six eighty WPA. Hello, there I have a question about the blockchain, technology and gaps. I keep seeing that turn and I'm wondering what they are, and what makes decentralized apps I guess, but what does that mean in how is that? How are they different from two APPS that we use today? Well, Joel good question, and no, we're not talking about a clothing store the gaps you're talking about probably gap limits which are part of the BI P forty-four specification, but can be a little bit. Bit of a problem for some users of digital wallets, the short version is that after a certain number of unused addresses in a row. It is assumed that there are no more unused addresses beyond that point. The most common problem with that is with backups that can lose digital currencies if there's a number of unused addresses followed by used addresses. It's a little bit convoluted. Obviously, but it's something that. That exists by design. It's not really an unintended bug, and that's what a decentralized APP is. If we stick currencies to explain it, then it work like this your bank stores your money, and you can use a website or application to use that money to pay your bills in a decentralized system like Bitcoin the theory of light coin, and so forth there's no bank. The money exists and it can be. Be Used, but it's not stored in the central computer or computer system, but distributed in a way that makes it accessible directly to the nodes that kind system frees you from the control of a single endpoint, which is why digital currencies are worrying to governments, which have a hard time tracking illegally obtained money and taxable income.

Here's Dave grave line. We, thank you for tuning into tomorrow. It's our two of three hours for the weekend of Friday July, Tenth Twenty Twenty our twenty fifth year on the air. You might consider US your gas X. for tech. We're going to hopefully solve your digital dilemmas. Take care of any questions you have about consumer technology. It's what we do I. Am Dave Gravely I'm Chris Grave along the lines of gas sex Soon we'll be chatting with the guy who solved the problem before there was a problem i. Guess I. See what you did there. That's very clever, and yes, you're absolutely correct. We will be doing that shortly. As a matter of facts, Steve Shearer from brundle. You'll see what we're talking about. If you stay tuned coming up next segment because we had so much to talk about with healthy home products, you WanNa stay tuned for that, Oh and providing bunch of goodies very expensive goodies for the summer giveaway, which will tell you about just a couple of minutes true, so stay tuned for all of that meantime some Tech News and commentary before we get to your calls. Last month the Department of Homeland Security through its science and Technology Directorate released a simple web based tool to help predict the decay rate of corona in the air, the tool accounts for the ambient temperature, relative humidity, and UV index in an outdoor environment to determine how much exposure time is required to inactivate certain proportions of the aerosolize corona virus basically in the air. Yeah, I I get that you know we've. We've all seen those gross videos. If somebody sneezing across the room, and you see all the particles going for what they said was forty-five feet, which is why the six foot rule came into play, but now there's a lot of concern about whether they stay in the air as aerosol droplets for a long time. Well I think that wants this whole thing's over. We ought to keep that six foot role. Can the masks. Social Distancing! I'm all for social to see how all social distancing before the virus. That's because you're so antisocial. That's a big different I. I did quarantine before quarantine was cool. I know anyway for any given combination of those variables. The tool outputs the amount of time until fifty percent, ninety percent and ninety nine percent of the virus particles being inactivated. The tool is openly available on the. Website for anyone to use good luck in your area in front of how long it will take currently conditions for. C. We all thought that. In Miami, we were going to be very lucky because it's always hot here and especially during the summer, it's extra hot. All capital letters hot and everybody says well. That's true because the virus doesn't survive in in extreme heat, but it drives all of us inside in the air conditioning, and now that's the concern about everybody being inside thus no inside restaurants, you can eat outside with social distancing. It's it's just gotten so here in south Florida. We've got the corona virus inside. Go outside. We got the mosquitoes and then gay fever, which is being, you know almost as many numbers. Exaggerate, but will be soon. Almost many numbers covid. Strange and yeah. The keys especially have getting hit hard with dengue fever from mosquitoes. Bizarre. If you don't have enough reasons to get off of and stay off of facebook. They just admitted that roughly five thousand third party, APP developers were able to access personal details of yours from accounts that had been inactive for more than ninety days. Even thought of you right away because you've got off a facebook breaking the guidelines, the company established after the Cambridge analytic mess back in two thousand eighteen facebook claims, they fixed the issue and are adding new policies. Yeah, right to its developer platform, regarding third-party sharing and safeguarding of user data. We heard that two years ago. That's why I had to say yeah, right or right, just stay off. Off Social Media I'm telling you antisocial media wonder why we call it that Liz in Windsor. Ontario listens on am eight hundred c Klw the information station. Hey, Liz, okay, I was under the impression. Quite possibly they can one that a smart TV would allow me to watch what was on my iphone or ipad true. My TV I know these devices their smart, but me not so much go. Don't don't say that, but lives to play your Iowa's content on your TV. You'll need airplay. There are a few ways to get airplay, but the most common is through an official apple device. The other ways are a little bit on the. Side, you probably don't want to deal with them. And there are some other manufacturers that are including that you've got a Vizier TV in your living room then I noticed that has apple pay built into it, so which is useless because I'm not an IPHONE, right? Now the cheapest and easiest way to play most of your content from your device to your TV would probably be a chrome cast their made by Google and they started around thirty bucks. They're not perfect, but they're easy enough to use. And their only real mission is to put content from phones or tablets onto TV's now an apple TV box will be the most seamless way to play the content from your devices, but they're standalone devices and will cost you quite a bit more. Yeah, so I would recommend the chrome cast for. For only thirty bucks you can do it. You Plug it into the TV in HD report on the back of your TV and you're good to go, and it's really very very easy to deal with at that point, so Liz let us know if that helped you out and what you're looking to do in the long run, and hopefully that solve the problem for you into tomorrow. Dot Com where you can always get more info by the way and stay tuned, listeners can give us more of their input to help Liz. Coup into tomorrow hot summer giveaway.

Our next guest solve the toilet paper shortage long before there even was a teepee shortage San Francisco based manufacturer and distributor of healthy home product. Wait till you see and hear about the kinds of cool things that. Del has available the President Brundle. Is Stephen Chair Steve Welcome into tomorrow? How are you? Hey, Dave, I'm doing great and really appreciate you having me on the show today it's a pleasure and full disclosure I've used one of your days for years and love it. And when people were having trouble early on in this pandemic and I don think nobody still understand why. Toilet paper was such a shortage, but when that was such a crisis I, just said really I don't I. Mean I still use some, but not nearly as much as I ever used to because I don't need to because of a very nice. But tell me before we get into some of that. How you guys got started how you got into I the day business, and then some of the other cool stuff. You've got available now. Yeah, thanks, Dave and you know first of all we're. We're glad you're fan. We hear. Similar comments from from our customers. You know once you sort of experience washing with water and the benefits of the day there's there's no going back and and speaking of being such a fan. It also has a fan. I have to throw that in and of course, a heated seat I. Don't know how people can up in the morning and go sit down and not go GEICO. I haven't had that problem for years. No more cold toilet seat shocked exactly I. Mean there's reason enough right there and we've talked a lot about the the advantages of things like days we had a recent guests that was absolutely with me. One hundred percent on the best thing you can do even for your parents or especially your grandparents is getting a day and it doesn't mean you have to go buy a whole day. What you're doing is getting something like a bad day seat that simply and I can attest to the fact very easily. Replaces your existing toilet seat, and you hook it up and Voila Oliver Sudden. You don't know how you live without it. That's exactly right. It's a you know A. Fit to your existing toilet can be self installed you know they range in price from a very simple non electric ambient temperature product you know around fifty sixty dollars all the way up to all the bells and whistles with heated seats and Deodorizers, and you know loads of technology for under seven hundred bucks for that top of the line of course because you run the gamut, it's affordable for everyone and. And talk about a perfect gift. I mean I'm not trying to Overdo it. Except that I am very my regular listeners know that because I talk about my Bron del. Day Anyway that it's something that you owe yourself. Let alone give to your parents or somebody else, or you know otherwise, but again it's the kind of thing that you save my gosh. How did I live without this before? Is that primitive? And Mind you. It's the gift that keeps on giving. You're going to use every day right? That's. True. It all started with me when I was first visiting Asia covering consumer tech products, and of course they're everywhere in Japan especially, and I'd be out there doing other trade show and saying my gosh, this is great. Every hotel I'm in has these days or or just these retrofits seats, and so forth. Why don't we have that well? It turns I looked into it and we do with Brundle so. That's actually a great segment into your your first question so. Our founder Dave, Samuel Use an Internet sorta entrepreneur in the early nineties was in Japan with his. His father was on a business trip and he accompanied him. And they were out. You know having dinner at a restaurant and he went into the bathroom And saw this contraption in the bathroom. buttons in in you know Japanese characters, and and you know started. He was just intrigued, started pushing some buttons to see what this thing was and You know long story short. He came back to the dinner table with the with a wet shirt and pants. I I could picture it now. Well what does this do well? Yeah Yeah so you know. That was his first experience and that kind of sat with him for about a decade and In early, two thousand in two thousand and three to be exact that idea came back to him, and he reflected back and said here's a product in at that time, six percent of homes in Japan. And doesn't even exist here. In America in the US you know what's going on, and we've always followed tech trends, you know. smartphones were in use in Japan before the US here. he thought what a great idea let's. Let's get this company going. couple of years later mark. Cuban actually invested in the company in Dave Samuel. Were friends and associates from The early days of the Internet they both had You know Internet. Companies Related to broadcasting and Music Online, so they knew each other, so he didn't even have to appear on shark tank. Before Shark tank believe room right. So. Yeah! Mark came in as an investor in the company was founded and we weren't quite ready for the message. I think back in two thousand three was You know a long slow uphill process early on you know convincing someone to change a behavior from from birthright white, and you know I'm used to this, and it's working for me and you know that's weird and awkward. but what we found is the more people that you know. Open up a little bit in. Give it a try. they actually end up becoming very passionate and lifetime users of the product and Steve that such a good point because I absolutely had kind of the same reaction. My first time in Japan saying well, what does this? What does this do etc? I was fortunate that at least a particular hotel I was in Tokyo at that point. Had English translations on the buttons as well. They were actually like label maker. The Japanese character, and then you could see a label maker underneath wash dry and has really and then so I tried it. And I thought this is this is very comfortable very nice and it did a nice job and drying and the whole bit plus again the seat was warm and I thought well. What's not to like about this? And you're right people once they try it. They say Oh, this is it I mean? Of course it's not the kind of thing that you can just go to your neighbors. House and say I hear. You have a day. Can I give it a shot you know? You got to be a close friend or family member. Yeah, exactly or knowing that you can start very inexpensively and then graduate up to other features and so forth. I think that is a good way to do it, and obviously you guys are doing it why the name brand does that mean, something, Biaro and DA l. l.. Is that did that come from something particular? That's actually a great question so. Early on trying to come up with a name for the company. You know it's you know what? What do we call? This thing and Brandao is actually paying homage to J.. F. John F., brundle he was an English architect early on who helped invent the type of flush valve that broad essentially was one of the components that brought basically the outhouse indoors block he he helped facilitate the today's modern toilet and bathroom that we know today so we put an extra. At the end of it to Sort of Americanize it a little bit, but that's actually the origin of that name. Well I'm glad I. Ask because that makes sense and I see that connection and the fact that you guys are kind of paying homage to that is pretty cool and I'm going to ask you a huge favor, Steve. If you don't mind holding on a couple of moments, let us pay a couple of bills that I'm going to extend the interview a little because. Because guess what folks, there's a lot more than the days that Bron del does. We're GONNA talk about healthy home products in general and some really cool tech that they use stay tuned meantime, visit Dell Dot Com Biaro, and D. E.. L. L. DOT COM. Of course. We'll get you there when you hit us up into tomorrow. Dot Com, I'm Dave grave line? Don't go away. Lots of cool stuff. You don't WanNa. Miss as into tomorrow continues. Welcome back into tomorrow. I'm Dave. Grave line were chatting with the president of Rondell Steve Sheer about all kinds of cool products. If you missed last segment, oh my gosh, be sure and go back and check it out on her free podcasts. If your local station doesn't carry all three hours, you can subscribe to them and otherwise check out the whole discussion about the days, but we want to get into more of the healthy home product line first of all Steve, what defines a healthy home product. And and how did you guys evolve from a day concept into that? Thanks Dave. You know the evolution was kind of a natural progression for sweet. You know. I think we had mentioned we came to the market very early on perhaps almost a decade, too early with our day feet, concept and while we were sort of waiting for that to catch on in grow. You know we were really looking at. How can we? You know, expand and grow the company and other ways and one of the things that our team has always been very passionate about is you know health and wellness, and and you know there's nothing better that you can do for yourself for your family. than to take care of your space in within the home, your sanctuary. We're all you know at home in. In you know throughout this pandemic and spending a lot of time at home in what better way to protect yourselves, then to make sure that you have products that you know, deliver health and wellness to the family. So you know as we looked at categories, The first thing that came to mind is drinking water we. We know there's been issues for years with. You know agricultural runoff pollutants getting into the ground water. old pipes and networks with you know lead and. So. we. Branched I from the day category, which is health and hygiene in the bathroom and got into a point of views, water filtration, simple devices countertop at first, and then we develop some under counter. Now we have reverse osmosis systems, really a whole suite to cater to whatever your needs might be, and what's cool is that I'm embarrassed to say. Say I didn't even know you handle a Lotta. Those products I knew you did great with days, and he did toilet seats and I thought that was your thing, and when I went to Dell Dot. Com Awhile back I'm thinking. Oh, my Gosh! The water filter systems air purifiers shower filtration. We WanNA get into that to you. How did that come about? Yeah so you know our approach to this is where of course, most known for days and days products, and that's a big focus of our business, but you know as the sort of healthy home experienced, concept grew and developed You know after water filtration We saw some success there. We said well what else you know. What else can we look at and Indoor Air Quality? was a concern asthma people with allergies Were you know we were hearing from customers and people that those are issues that were in the home So you know a few years later, we launched air purification Then we were hearing from customers about you know. Hey. You make this great drinking water filtration. You know how you know in my shower, too. You have something for that. Yeah, my body's just as important as my wanting to drink some water, so you might as well be getting a clean shower. Absolutely chlorine is you know can do horrible things to your skin. Your hair can dry out so we're looking for you know technologies the latest technologies we try to take the you know the best designs we we don't just take something off shelf, but will develop and design and work with our our partners to get something that combines you know top technology with nice design in aesthetics and something not functional for your health and wellness and hygiene. And and kind of you know. The umbrella were working under and a lot of don't think about things like humidity, and that most certainly makes a difference in your home, not only for yourself, your furniture and your overall wellbeing and tell me about this revive. I'm seeing. It's a true air filter and humidifier that apparently does a whole lot of stuff with a bunch of different kinds of filters, which suggests to me that you're taking out all kinds of. From from the air and bringing back a whole much much healthier, it seems home environment. Absolutely, that's actually one of our top seller products. It's a newer product for us and actually was just reviewed by consumer reports is well. There's information on the website about that in a link to They're rating, but it's a consumer. Reports recommended product, which is nice. It gives a little legitimacy to You know saying. Hey, these guys have a good. Product high-quality absolutely as if being legitimised by into tomorrow isn't enough. It's nice to. It's nice to also have consumer reports. We have them on the show all the time and it's always impressive when a product gets there. You Know Label of approval. If you will so congrats on that. Obviously, they were impressed. Thank you, yeah, we actually use a dual have filter. Filter, so there's a Hep A. felt there in the front end the back. We also combine that with you know an activated charcoal filtration system, and there's some customized filters you can put in. There so it's a really high, and you know capacity type machine. That's really gonNA. pull out those tents in the air. The things that are going to. Give you, you know allergies and and breathing issues within the home. It's going to clean up that air and the wonderful thing about that is it also has a natural evaporative humidifier? Feature in there if you live in an area where you don't need it, you simply don't need to use it. It's something that can be used. When needed maybe in the wintertime when your heating the home and it's drier and in the summertime you can you know just not fill it with water and don't use that function so great way to combined humidifier nation with A. A clean air and purification well Steve I wish we had more time. It just tells me. We've gotta get you back on again sooner than later. Because there's so much more to talk about especially with all the cool stuff that you guys are coming up with and no doubt even more. I'm sure into tomorrow in thirty seconds. Can you tease us with anything else? You're working on these days. You know the the future of the bathroom is really really interesting. And you know we've put is much technology into the day seats in terms of features and functions and comfort I, mean they do all kinds of things but the next evolution is going to be something really groundbreaking, and that begins to look at smart seats that the. Monitor and detect and. Alert family members about maybe pending health issues, so if something were on the forefront of and we're working on some really cool stuff that we're excited to see develop over the next couple of years.

Did you know into tomorrow as bound the radio for twenty five years now. Wow, that's longer than I've been alive. A very. Observation. Cameron, thank you so much. It takes a lot of data to create new wearables that are accurate and useful. A new organization is solving this problem for developers with this week's into tomorrow. Health tech minute brought to you by dex com. Here's Alfred Poor. Thanks Dave wearable devices are changing. How do healthcare lowering costs and saving lives? But developers need to create the software that analyzes the sensor data, and they need to test their systems to make sure that they're really measuring what they think they're measuring creating the algorithms and collecting the necessary data for testing are expensive and complex tasks. A new organization has created an open source database of both algorithms and data that can be used by wearable device developers. Open source means that the information is available for free and can be shared and modified the open wearables initiative is also encouraging researchers and wearable developers to contribute their own algorithmic data sets to the collection. All donations will be carefully screened to make sure they're appropriate and accurate. Before being made available, this project could lower the cost of development for new wearables and bringing the market even faster for into. Into tomorrow I'm Alfred Poor back to you? Dave well. Thank you Alfred very cool as usual always some neat stuff and that could help in terms of the wearables. A lot of US folks the into tomorrow.

NASA recently announced that its Mars Curiosity Rover has started a road trip across the Martian surface. The journey will cover a distance of around mile and take several months to complete suggesting that the curiosity rover moves about as fast as my kid whenever I'm trying to leave the house. Yeah, exactly, it's time to go. Let's go. You said that last time he was at my house and I say. Why does it always take an hour to leave my house? What did he say? It's because I. Love Him. Yeah, referring to me right, and that's why he doesn't want to leave, so yeah takes a while when you have to leave my house. He's not ready to go. He doesn't WANNA. Go. You're saying. NASA said that some of what it's calling. A summer road trip will be completed using the Rovers automated driving abilities that allow curiosity to deploy its own smarts to find the safest path forward, but the science team, some of whom are currently working from home, due to the pandemic decide to intervene along the way to make stops for drilling samples or to study something that takes their interests interesting, so they're seeing it. Wander aimlessly, but not so aimlessly. It's GonNa Actually Wander on purpose. They might say. Oh, wait a minute. Wait. What look to the right. Let's do a little something here. But this isn't there like a several minute delay between known in Marceau. It's hard for them to say. Stop right there and look to the right because it will have already passed where it was. I Know Lag Times got to be a problem. Yeah I don't know how they. Maybe they're looking further ahead. And giving enough command time to say when you get to this little crater kind of area, then turn right, and let's drill. Get a sample. Maybe I'd like to think that the scientists working for NASA are smart enough to have accounted for that certainly smarter than us, so I'm sure they've figured it out at some point. Dave in Erie Pennsylvania listens on W.. PSE Money Radio. Hey, dave, welcome into tomorrow. LAPTOP COMPUTER HP, and when I go to type stuff in, it will not let me type anything in. I have to reboot. It tried again. What to do, not computer savvy person so I. Don't know why keeps doing that. You can't type letters in sometimes. I don't know what's going on well. Dave that's difficult situation. I feel for you. It's hard to give you any real advice. Just that about just that of course, but if the starts work than it sounds like it's likely software based now if that's the case unless you have some kind of customization that hijack some. Some of your keys for shortcuts like press F. Ford automatically paid some given taxed or something like that the most likely cause our drivers, and of course, the cats there is keyboards tend to use pretty standard drivers and the ones that your laptop uses for its keyboard have probably been pretty much unchanged for a long time. Drivers are just software, and they can break after an operating system update. Though so that's worth having a look. If possible. See if you can update them. There's probably something custom running on your computer to account for extra keys. If nothing else removing or updating that might fix the issue, yeah. Always look at drivers when you get those kind of weird things going on updating the drivers, and there's so many free programs that will help check your system and alert you about outdated drivers, and then give you the option to click update or not or delete them, but be careful. Delete stuff unless you know for sure what you're deleting before. You make any changes to your computer. Computer always do a system. Restore Point. If you're not familiar with that, you can do a search in windows. Help and find out how to do this this merged point, but that's important, because if you. If you make a change, it messes your computer up. You can go back to that. Restore Point which was before you made any changes. It messes your computer up even more yeah. Go back to the original problem and then starts trying to solve it again. Hey, do you get our free once a week tech newsletter? Don't say yes, I know you. Do you have to condition of employment?

One of my favorite cities Tommy in gun town Mississippi. Listens on Super Talk Mississippi. Tommy Welcome! Welcome into tomorrow. Hey, dave out just wondering about the Dr Technology. What? Where do you think it will be in? Say Five years or even ten years from now I think it's just wonderful and I can't wait to see advanced and just wanting your opinion well. Tommy very cool. I'm glad that you think it's wonderful because it's kind of hard to say in terms. Terms of where we're going to be at the moment, though VR's pretty much hindered by the lack of movement that it affords the user by the battery life, and for that matter by the fact that the users very isolated, the last part may change by virtue of improving networks that may allow users to be virtually together, but the other two still are a problem at. At the moment games for example require you to stand relatively immobile and clumsily try to manipulate things in a largely static world. The most obvious improvement would be some kind of feedback when the user interacts with virtual object, but that does also depend on what we can achieve with batteries and the biggest problem VR has at the moment. Is the users think it's neat? NEAT, but lose interest quickly even after spending hundreds of dollars on very specific hardware while the movement tracking seems ready, and in some cases it's truly impressive. Games are painfully dumbed down to work within the limitations of technology that puts your head in hands into a virtual environment, but not the rest of your body. Yeah, we've got a ways to go Tom. You bring. Bring up some good points. It is exciting. There's some great opportunities still expensive. If you WanNa get that better experience and I, we're just not there yet There's a lot of VR in medicine that helps doctor's help. Surgeons prepare for example and things like that.

That assistant will support more devices, including streaming sticks speakers and AV receivers, according to nine to five Google. The announcement is essentially an invitation for developers and device makers to join the Google. Ecosystem. Which I think is clever, because look. How many things Amazon Alexa and control. and Google is a bit behind on a lot of that, but if you can control your av receiver, maybe you're streaming stick with Google home device. Why not well, but the things that lexa control when the LEX actually works from Yeah I've been having trouble. We both had the same problem with you. Know. Turn on the kitchen speakers you know. I'm not able to communicate currently with the kitchen. Check the network connection. How about check your connection? Well? It's funny because I came across the story. I mean and I didn't read the whole thing, but the the the gist of it was you know some group that a test of words that can accidentally. The speaker and they list the probability of these words and what I thought was really funny on the exit. Devices Alexa scored only nine out of ten so. You know one time out of every ten. The Alexa didn't even activate the Alexis. What we've done that, too. We've had to yell at her a couple of times, and and it's frustrating, and then all of the thing that you experienced lately that I have a couple of times, too is you'll say something like turned the bedroom lights on. And she'll go dang or acknowledge okay, and nothing happens of course, and then you get up out of bed. You go to the switch to do manually. Oh, my Gosh, what we twenty eighteen having to manually turn the lights on, and by the time you get out of bed and head over there. The lights came on. Did that. The other night I have a lamp in the corner of my bedroom, which I said, let's turn off the lamp. She said. Nothing happened I. Figured I next time I go to go to the bathroom. Go turn the lamp up. I literally was was pulling the sheet back to get out of bed, and the Memphis turned off three minutes later very well at least didn't turn off after you got out of bed and Stub your toe. Yeah, maybe Alexis communicating via Mars, so there's that lag time because it also did same light on in the middle of the night one time and scared the heck out of me I woke me up from from a deep sleep.

The German verner fleshy got a first patent for a strike mask in nineteen, thirty, eight, separating red, green and blue filters. This was the basis for color tubes, but it came too early nine years later in one thousand forty seven world. War Two are ca developed a first prototype with such a shadow mask. The screen was no bigger than a postcard. In nineteen fifty four, finally, the market started in the United, states with a round to about twenty two inches, BBC in the UK and Russian television began trials with color television. It was of course the showcase for these innovations as well. That's this week's EPA update brought to you by Messy Berlin.

Don't hesitate to do that anytime. Twenty four seven. You can either do it. The old fashioned way. It works eight, hundred, eight, nine, nine in two. That's eight, hundred, eight, hundred, eight, nine, nine into. Or use the audio option on the free into tomorrow APP. Hit the little button that says message the studio and it's very easy to participate that way. It is. And it sounds like you're sitting right here next to us in the studio. Yeah, very true just like we are Greg in Manchester. Tennessee listens online. Welcome into tomorrow. Greg question is for this new edge browser. Got A notification on my computer. I need to update my Internet Explorer Browser so anyway. I'm just wanting to know more what you know about. The edge browser wanted better I. Don't know that it's better. Greg, but once upon a time I e accounted for nearly five percent of the traffic. Websites would see that Internet explorer. You may recall these days as you're experiencing. Even Microsoft wants off of it. Microsoft is still supporting i. I E at least until windows ten loses support, but they're not really keeping it updated to where it can compete with other modern browsers, I e doesn't support many standards that other browser does so. It's not rare to run into pages that just will not work under the old Internet explorer, most sites, but also web based services are not bothering to support anymore, because the user base is understood to have shrunk to pretty. Pretty small levels, but also because it's genuinely expensive to support it. The lack of compatibility with modern standards means that some things that work for every other browser will not work by and I might need to add lots of British work, arounds, or even duplicate features edge on the other hand is rescan chromium, the engine that Google's chrome uses chromos, the current standard browser on computers and the one that has the most widespread support. Support that means that switching over to edge will pretty much guarantee that most sites will work with your computer. Of course why not just use edge and that's my whole point I'm sorry I mean chrome. Why not just used chrome? That's one of my main browsers and fire foxes, the other one and I use them as my default browsers on various devices of course at the moment. If you WANNA stick with I e. You should be good. It's still getting security updates for the moment, but your overall online experience will be worse in fact, because I've got the four main browsers all on my computer. I've got fire Fox use the most. I've got chrome which I then use public second most, and then I've got opera, and then way down at the end of each yeah, the newer edge because it's better than I e though it's still. Still, not as good as fire Fox and chrome firefox is still my browser of choice, and has been for years ever since netscape navigator was pulled off the market. I've moved to fire Fox and of course, if you're a MAC person, you're likely using safari, but a lot of Mac people are also using chrome and fire Fox. It's the reason that I would like fireflies because those of us. Who are fans of Netscape. morphed into Firefox Yeah Right. That's the Mozilla whole thing there, so it's an interesting question Greg and I hope that you've not stuck with i. e too much longer because there are so much every other browser, even ones you probably haven't heard of our lot better than Internet explorer ever was and all the popular browsers, ninety percent of every other browser all free, anyway, of course. Yeah, so if you join if you don't have chrome download, it or fire. Fire, Fox, or or even opera, very good, stable browsers and your websites. We'll look fine if you've got a question similar to Greg's or maybe you want to offer some additional input for any of our callers. We love listeners helping other listeners.

We'd love to hear from you joining us to discuss stem tastic Saturdays, or is it steamed tastic Saturday's yeah, that would be better, the CEO and founder of seek foundation this is. Education empowers knowledge. This is very cool Nikkei Sicario K., welcome into tomorrow. How are you doing? I'm wonderful wonderful. Thank you for having me I'm excited. It's. A pleasure to have you because I think what you guys are doing is truly fascinating, and because our format has always been technology for twenty five years. Anything that folks can do to help kids get more involved in science, technology, engineering and math. We get the stem part of it, but we're steam. Come into it. What does steam about now with the theme initiative? It's more so to incorporate the art with a Sam in when we talk about art, then think about art it apply to engineering. It's apply to science, so it's applied to everyday life and now individuals. Individuals wanted to incorporate the arts. Because when you think about engineering, there's like a prototype where you're actually sketching. You're designing. All of those key features will go under art than now is a movement to incorporate art because of those different areas that intertwined with Sim itself, which is science technology engineering mathematics, and our love that because I like the explanation to art does play a role. It's all part of being creative and design, and that certainly makes makes a big difference so now tell me about the Sikh Foundation that you are the CEO and founder of. Abbey Galactic. Tell you a lot about that. Try to keep it brief because I am a talker. So we're. We're talking about speak. Foundation it is a nonprofit that teaches children how to build products and three different pillars in pillars are things like them education because some people do not incorporate the arts, the other pillar is health and fitness, and then a community involvement is the third pillar and everything that we do through those three pillars with a semi end or seeing and we service kids from ages five to eighteen, and we have it in who core her core part with our primary and secondary with the elementary, and in a secondary, is middle school and high school, and so with those program for the SAM. Sam Sash Theme Education. We do it during the week and we have robotics hydroponic rolling, and we also have the same tactics Saturday which we include the arts so on the Saturday. We have community come together with parents local colleges, or may be a local park recreation, and they will come together, and they will build in and or make products on those Saturdays and what the health initiative we use the hydroponic growing so that kids can learn how to grow their own food in the classroom and learn about fitness in on. Think that expense Saturday with the community involvement children are making items incident to claim. That may have been affected by a hurricane or you know some type of disastrous event that took place so recently. CHILDREN MAY MOBILE AC unit. They made the order intimate lotion in near also in the process of learning how to build an APP with Microsoft so that they can kind of go over to the Bahamas this summer and tracked to see exactly what's going with the things that they bill and how people are using it, so those are a lot of the things that we have going on and I hope I, kind of summarize exactly like what we do to Kinda. Give people a glimpse of what's going on with Zeke Foundation. A very job of that. What prompted you to actually start seek? Teacher for fifteen years and. I'm still a teacher I still have my superhero powers with teaching, and so it was more so my variant as a teacher with Like the stuff that they wanted us to teach kids, and it was a more so of not having the freedom to do certain activities because it was more. Related to lead view standardized. Push the kids with these questions, but I was more so we'll. To do more activities, regarding technology and Exposed to it, and they'll pick up the vocabulary so it prompt me as a teacher based on what I would be in my own experience in the environment in which I was to start the them seem and do things that I. Naturally don't see in the school like I don't go to school. And the kids are making candles or making them lip balm and learning about physical chemical changes. You're not outside like building a robot, and it's not the same as not happening at any school of course, but I think more schools should take the initiative with the hands on learning individualized instead of standardized learning bath. What prompted all just my experience teacher, and that's of course the best experience especially if you're looking to enhance the education of the kids then. You're doing it from within. It's not maybe you know. Certainly parents are as concerned, but they're not in the environment. They're all day every day. As you have been so that makes a lot more sense. Yeah, and so for me. It's like I. Have a better understanding of like. How do we get more kids involved because my experience when I was growing up with my science teacher, it was just more feel like you know. Hey, watch me do this then you try. Try to understand it now. Answer the question, but even in in in real life as humans. We all learned by doing whether it was something we were successful at whether it's something that we failed. We had some type of experience and we picked up some vocabulary. Stop something that we felt that was effective. And sometimes we have to ball or failed twice and three times just to pick up another experience within the same metrics that we were operating in. So I'm always. Always looking at key way to be innovative wet technology with General, science, and engineering, because it's the future of the world is bad. The world is changing fast with technology, and if these kids are exposed to a edme early age, this physically at an early age, then is like you're going to be left behind it. They won't be able to compete in. A world is changing with Technology Co. workforce. That is very true, and not only will they not be able to? To compete, but then our country can't compete to. We hear all kinds of news stories as well about how we're so far behind some other countries that are really on top of these things for technology so anything you can do to help. Continue to put that forward is certainly very good. You mentioned that you're get you get some kids involved and maybe creating an APP and doing some coding and so forth. Do you find that the kids especially the younger ones? Are Not afraid to jump into those kind of things or How do you describe coating to a five year old and see if he or she is interested? Are we use It's we love these many theodoros like we introduce the kids to these little robotic balls, and they have Java block script coding, and so we kinda tease the kids. Hey, you have this many ball. You can do so many things with you can tell it to stop. You can tell to go. You can tell it to make burnt sounds. You can tell it determine rich you can make. It turned purple. Purple and ten seconds you can make a go five of centimeters and five seconds, so with explaining that a child is like. Oh, I can do that like I have magic. I can really do that with this year. You can't and so once you intrigue them, and and you set the foundation of like Yo. This is fun like you can get into this and you show them like this is how you drag and drop and you move here. You move it there like you let them experiment on their own and then. Then, they'll come. See what questions so it's more thought to be facilitated like I. AM stuck on this car I. Don't understand this part because they wanna do it because you presented to them like you can make this piece of technology. Do whatever you wanted to do, but you have to program it to do that sounds like you're creating the imagination for them. And what's it is and imagination? Because now you're putting it out at the world like this is what I imagined, but I can actually make it happen and so. So from there. We kind of use the block holding, and then with that same Colbrad. They actually use the actual Java scrip- with the CIA's US and they can transition from block coding typing an actual language a Nikkei if you don't mind, I'm going to interrupt. Sorry to interrupt, but I want to ask you to hold on just a couple of minutes while we pay. A couple of bills will do a quick commercial break and come right back and talk with the CEO and founder of Seek Foundation here on into tomorrow. Guys by now. You've heard that great news.

We're talking with the CEO and founder of Seek Foundation. Seeking Education empowers knowledge. See what they did. There S E K and s e e e Edu. Dot Org is their website. You talk about mentioning coating to a child, obviously to understand what that means, and how they can get in and and make things do different things, but you mentioned coding to an adult who's not otherwise into computing or an it professional or something, and they just freak out what no I've. That's not for me well, because they've not even listened a little bit about the kinds of things that might make their life easier, more productive or or more fun, but the kids are sponges. They want to soak up this knowledge they are they. They are very like they eyes just light. Light Up, they want to soak up the information and I think with that. When parents see their kids are intrigued. The parents start to come around to because during our theme has today's sometimes I tell the parents. Oh, well well. Could you let your child or you know? Let them finish so that Bacon have the opportunity to experience the entire thing, but I still want the parents to participate and with that experience now we're teaching kids like html. We're on the process of trying to get more kids to do. Python as part of our new initiative with building APPS and things of that nature. I have a few parents that are like I. WanNa learn how to do it. I. Class because we make it where it's, and I was I was kinda fabric. You Really WanNA learn how to do coding because it's like when you're older. And this is my mic is because I wasn't always a science teacher I. was thrown into a science classroom and I went back to school to learn more about science and grew low four, so I find myself. Trying to make the content easy to understand because it's a very difficult it has very difficult vocabulary words. You're jumping into the and then you're jumping into computer science. So I try to fine. What's the easiest way if I want somebody to understand how to make a landing page? Just use the ATM like I. Try Because That's how I learn. I'm a very concrete learner, but I can allow rigorous material at Disney to be broken down to me very simple very easy and I. Think you bring up such a good point when you talk about the excitement now from the parents when? When they see the kids come home with some newfound knowledge and more importantly excitement about what they're doing. It's like Gee I. WanNa learn about that, too. Yeah, that sounds fascinating whatever it might be, but especially from science and technology standpoint. Now you've got those parents hopefully much more involved than they. They're not just dropping them off to you here. Teach them something, and then I'll pick them up later and go shopping. They truly are wanting to be involved as well it should be. And this is absolutely correct. Now we have more teachers that will say their entire time doing during the same tactic Saturday, and we also have like the professors. They would participate help the kids with the Science Club saw. It is really growing to where we put up an event like we just put up one with Microsoft and it was already closed with a day or so for the seats that we have available for event bright, we try to keep the classes small on a Saturday and the parents I have a video with the parents. They get like by the come here. then. School like that is a powerful statement drew and they're and they're learning more. That's a whole other point you wanNA visit seek Edu Dot Org S. E. E. K., E.

Be Able to basically make calls from an unlocked laptop or tablet type device on the keyboard on. It's like an all female, not sure if that's possible, let's. Get answered well. Derek, what you're describing is something that's expected to become more common as five G. Rolls Out. There used to be plenty of laptops with their own phone service as a way to provide them. Internet on the go. If you will, they just usually lack the capacity to make real phone calls today, you can make Wifi calls laptops through third party services like Google voice or Skype, and some computers like apples line can make phone calls from a link number on a compatible. Compatible phone now these days, the easiest way to get what you want would be to tether the computer to a phone for the service as needed, but stay tuned computers with their own phone service are expected to make some kind of a comeback soon. Yeah, and again remember five G. is going to be the key there. We're GONNA have the ability to have a lot more connectivity without necessarily having to have a specific phone number because that's the other issue. People were saying I don't. Don't WanNA.

School police departments in twenty of the largest cities failed to meet the minimum standards of basic international human rights guidelines. The Free Thought Project reports at the report indicated that compared with many other places in the world police are given far more discretion to use deadly force in the United States. The report also noted that police in the US or authorized to use brute force arbitrarily, which they say is a common tool of tyrannical and despotic governments. The researchers behind the study tried to determine how police policy in the US compares with International Human Rights Standards.

Time driven by Continental. I am injury. We'd be no, I'M NOT NEW YORK vacaville California still with my partners and soccer, reaching out to you from Afar Kaelin Car Mattdoyle David Goss. What's up, guys? Are You Canada Day? Canada day is up. That's what I. Didn't realize that there gonNA be that much excitement, but I am now very excited about holidays, Dwayne, Derosario, day you think it's A. Has a better into, but that's neither here nor there. Kedah, Kedah! that. Good right? Yeah, if you know off the top of your head when candidate is, it is on Wednesday July first we are releasing this on Thursday July second, but we recorded a day earlier because Dave had big plans or something. He wanted a free weekend to do nothing in Brooklyn. Was Oscar into that? What what are you doing Dave? Hooper sound new. York boo the home of baseball to sit in a cabin at fires and lie games and hang out and drink. Maple Sarah has nothing to do with baseball, but it turns out that everyone goes to Cooperstown all summer for literally tournaments. There are no literally tournaments, so houses were very cheap. They have it. Little triggered the trade from. David Goss. We've got a big show today for you mostly glad you're profiting off of the loss of little leaguers. There's summers ruined in Dave's just. Kicking back in a cabin. Bunk beds in here. And this is really upset because he's living in one thousand, nine hundred seventy S, basement and little league is the most precious thing in the world. Just, lashing out strip. Love, love, the lamp. We've got a big show. Some interviews coming your way, Chris Wanda. Laos St will be with us from the bubble in Orlando, joined by Caleb, porter, the head coach of the Columbus crew of course, and then we'll finish up with Aaron Schoenfeld new center forward there in Minnesota to talk about his move from Israel, Anna lasts and all his experiences in between some crazy stories in there. We've got to start with this. Because this is really going to be the big breaking news, I should say with them. Alas, really over the. The course of the next month plus MLS did confirm on Wednesday July first that six FC Dallas players have tested positive for covid nineteen, two of those six were positive immediately upon arrival at the host hotel, in Florida and then additional four players tested positive within the last two days they tested negative, those four and now tested positive. All of those guys immediately put into an isolation area of the hotel. which you know all about from our episode with our Dr Margaret, Tuchen the chief medical officer for major league soccer. No other members of the delegation at the host hotel I've tested positive so six positives of three hundred ninety two people, all six of those from the FC Dallas delegation, and no other club, according to him, last has been in contact with that delegation since they arrived in Florida so That was sort of the scenario. That had been worse case spent. A team has outbreak within it and we will have to see what happens with this and how they handle it, and what happens going from here as well as all the other teams that are gonNA. COME INTO ORLANDO. So that's the state of things right now. I don't know that there's any non awkward weird way to transition off of that news. Always like just hope all the players and the staff are safe and that all of them who have been infected that it. It goes quickly and without complications, because health is the most important thing here, so fingers crossed for that I. think that that was well so health and safety over everything. We're thinking about the folks in that delegation for FC Dallas and all those players have tested positive Let's just I guess plough ahead. Here feels wrong to do so emotions back. Tournament is in July. The bracket challenge is now live bracket dot. com We'll put the extra time league out there ten thousand dollar first prize, a thousand dollars per second place in two hundred fifty for third, there are two stages one for the group stage where you're basically predicting who finishes wear in the groups and who moves on to the knockout round, and then once the knockout rounds set. There will be another stage where you make those pick, so you don't have to make the whole thing now. Just the group stage. Let's assigned some groups or choose some groups. Tell me how they're going to finish. What do you think, doyle you got? Group? E ATLANTA UNITED'S GROUP Group how is? You got win. This thing who second is moving on I think Columbus. Are The the favorites of this year and I know they didn't play great to start the season, but they have. Two things right they they have the ability to sit deep encounter, which they're excellent debt, especially I I think with the as on that right flank then Josse always makes the right run. Doesn't as at a sprint and like Josse approving goals or announcing you have that and then. In Zella Riaan you have a number ten who has already shown once this year that he can win a game for you so I like what Columbus have in terms of being an uncomplicated team. They have some debt, but a clear I eleven. They have one or two guys who can change the game coming off the bench. To and at the end, a veteran defense like that to me seems like a really good formula for this for this tournament, whereas the other three teams in the late in a group are just words. Control Atlanta here and not have them finished second I'm just waiting for the inevitable moment. I'm based on the edge of my seat waiting for when you say I I. Don't I think I? Think Atlanta finish third in this group. I think that Atlanta's like Joseph Martinez. Over the last three years is at the best three year run of any striker analysts history. You could argue his two thousand eighteen season was the best season in MLS history. If you factor in what he didn't play offs, in addition to what he did in the regular season and last year, twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred have been even better more important because that team. They were mets in the middle of the year, and then he scored in what seventeen straight games he picked them up, and he carried them emotionally, and he carry them obviously in the box score, and he's the one who gives the team, their shape and I know they have talent behind him There's a chance that EZEKIEL BARCO PT Martinez. Risotto all live up to it and this look stupid but I I just can't see a way. For Atlanta, without Joseph Cortina's I can't and so second place I. It's not GonNa be the rebels. Actually Actually Cincinnati lace. Yes new. The troll was coming. Now I'm not sure no I'm not drilling like. Would never. S Cincinnati. Showed promise in those first two games now. Obviously, they have been a disaster off the field. They've had to make so many stops and starts, but if you look at that talent on that team, they have. You'RE GONNA look. A twenty million dollar striker, they have in Alan crews and Frankie Maya to your midfielders who can cover a lot of ground in cover for Cindy's young and in harassment and they have you. Yakubu another DP Ford. They're going to be questions about the defense. I'm not picking them to win it all, but I think this is a team with a ton of firepower who could go out there and punish Atlanta and punish the Red Bulls in give Columbus game which they did last year. So I think it's it's Columbus number. This is Ohio Columbus number, one Cincinnati number, two and Atlanta number three, and then the rebels number four I know the rebels already be Cincinnati wants this year, but They have their so questionable in terms of what they do in the second half of games, and that has been consistent over the past eighteen months. So Yeah I. Guess Group ends up the opposite in a lot of ways. What most people would have as no Josh Sims as well? He's back to Southampton just simply barely knew you. Demari, ask like comes in on the DP loan, and then we'll be has gone. Group D. What do you think? Group tough one. It's one of the groups where I think any team could get out depending on the form they have I think our has the most question marks coming into it, so you look at kc who played well the first two games of the season of broadened Lido they have, and they have experienced which I think is going to be huge in the tournament like this. They can possess the ball control the game if that's what they need to do, and I think they can also defend as a unit used Johnny Russell and whoever else is buying on the other wing as an outlet. If they have to counter, I think C gets through. And then you look rod they won. What are they? I yeah, their number. Okay, okay, also been together the longest. They've been training together. The longest which I think is like one of those. Pretty large details is really gonNA matter sorry did. Did we man's plane Doyle's group to him? An. addition. Cruelty and then I'd say after that Colorado. The way. They're built. Robin Frazier the ideas. They have an obviously. We've talked seventeen thousand times about them. Scoring pieces and their ability to threaten genes in the tournament setting where you know exactly what you need in terms of goal, differential results last fifteen minutes of a game. Your body's forward. They've got a lot of options in that and then I think Minnesota's GonNa be really mad at me for this and I'm kind of okay with I know. We had this discussion a week ago or something. About Minnesota and where they're at and you guys felt like they were closer to the team. They were last year than I do. which is I think that the attacks has changed so much that it's not a ton of continuity. They have that continuity in the backline in defense. So I think Minnesota has a shot to be the third the third place team. They have a shot to get out as one of the best third place teams. After Apple Yeah, that's how my face burning an embarrassment from the man's blamed. DRAG I. Know you're good all the way. No tailing. I continue. I'll give you a free two minutes, and I won't interrupted. Okay now took I had to bite my tongue, too with this FC Cincinnati. Pick I was sitting there. If y'all. On like two handfuls of practice can come in and beat the Atlanta read the Atlanta Amaretto sticking through that would be quite the coaching performance there. Hey, we're things happen. It's twenty twenty nine. Hey! We are, we are learning not for sure so I'll. I'll go ahead and I think most people win. The groups were announced looked at group F and said kind of obvious choice, I mean everyone's got circled traffic. Oh, they want to watch the match I understand not based on the the history between these two clubs short history, but. I guess entertaining one for sure so most people have kind of penciled and through, but I. don't see it that way I do feel that L. AFC, clearly as best team in MLS and You know if if Charlie candle is still there, and it sounds like an reports I'm reading that he will be. We don't know necessarily everybody who's going to be in attendance, or who isn't but. But with the way that team plays the way they're built, and the like the institutional knowledge that they have from Bob. System I think that's GONNA be able to you can just I just think of like? How quickly can you turn the lights on in a tournament like this, and that's one where I think they will go through and go through my top of that group after that. That I really think this is wide open I. I. Don't think it's an obvious answer at all that the La Galaxy are the next logical pick to go through just from watching them in person week one against Houston Dynamo who they will also be facing this group He just looked lacklustre. They didn't look like there was many ideas. They couldn't figure out how to get a Cheeto the ball in. In, good spots, of course scored brilliant goal I think he can always find a moment of magic, but again with the galaxy it still the system hasn't really taken shape. It's really a waiting for moments of individual brilliance, and they don't have the the big man that they did last year to do that. So a more that will fall on the phone but dynamo some advantages just based on. understanding the heat, the humidity and I think that have a good energy within the group. But, I think. Portland is the second team for me to go through, and we've seen what. Can Do in a tournament setting in play offs throughout his career, even before taking over with Orland I really like of course, the Front attacking group that they have going for them with Blanco and Jeremy, Abobo see will have a big role hopefully and and then you always have Valeria and as a nice spine. They're and they're good in this type of setting, so I figured if I were to pick it out, I would go. L. AFC PORTLAND HOUSTON. Dynamo I think La. Galaxy is still have a lot of work to to figure out and they don't have Jonathan Dough. Santos. That news is just dropping here. Hernia surgery so like he is one of the sort of he's a linchpin. You take the Lynch pin and this already sort of rickety. Contraption might just kinda crumble to the ground TV we see, but I think I'm with you came on I. Don't think the Galaxy get through. I'm taking the group of chaos as doyle coined at Group A, six teams because I'm out here making guarantees about Dom Dwyer and trying to embarrass myself with Orlando, city picks their finishing third. They're moving on. They're getting through. The got to so i. have some self respect and then. I liked. I liked that we'd be takes the group of chaos, and then starts in the middle so next. They have to tell us who finishes fourth. I had to do the whole six. What's the point going through there even though? Is No idea what you're getting from. Nashville knowing for you get from Chicago. Inter Miami like they don't get L. GP now because you can't have tan players and DP sign and come in I. Don't know what they're going to get there. I don't know if they can score goals to all those guys. You guys fight it out for fourth fifth and sixth. Don't care doesn't matter. It's only one through three that matters and I think the top two are the two most talented teams that have actual continuity and a plan, and that's Philly and New York I'm going Philly one. I think that they will come in and be more prepared in that moment and I think that there may be better suited this sort of grind. Grind things out, and then you got seeing you, so let's get to the eightieth minute and then just bring on the cheat code and see what he can do. They have a lot of goals. Scores of top. It may not have all been consistent last year, but everyone of them has a chance to hit a heater and I I really like Casper Chicago and he's healthy now as well and then to New York City. They move on both have a great chance to make long runs, but for me Philly new. York City and Orlando and I'm writing Dom Dwyer all the way baby, so that's where I see. Can we talk your domino? Let's real quick before we Kennedy's interviews. You're dumb, does it matter? Is it a big signing for Atlanta? They announced he will not play like L.. GP Molasses back, but instead of like the hat thing that La did they with? You know like old micro fiber blanket that he ended up. Clubs sanctioned that I think that was just. I think he went rogue. Full his own Tiktok I think that was the whole thing it's gotta be. That's personal content because I have that same sitting in my inlaws living room right now A. The ten year old blanket you got for Christmas. They like whatever you know I. Guess I'll use that someday. His dance lives to. Very Weird Weird. Position to criticize anybody's dancing, so I thought it was cool. Do you think the signing is cool. Now will I mean you're is real fast, and he runs straight and he doesn't have never added much else to his game. I guess because they'd played three or four to one. That's kind of what you want from a a wingback, but it seems like a lot to. Spend on a wingback. Who's never actually? been. We've never actually lived up to his potential them. Maybe the the change of scenery helps I think everybody agrees that he has talent, but. You, know I it. He's never really brought that to bear week after week after week. I. If it was me, I would rather have Julian growl. Brooks, linen. We were sort of talking about this before. where he fits in like they're gonNA play with wingbacks. He's never played that position before. I'm not saying he can't. But how much is he worth to you at that spot? And then you've got like five or six different wingers. He's not I I guess the easiest way to put it. He's not a Tito. Volvo replacement is not a guy who can play anywhere across the front line. He's not a guy who's really going to create opportunities by himself, so doyle put it. He's a straight line runner with decent touch. There was a hope that he would develop from that. Take that and then become you know an elite creative player on the wing, and that never happened if they got him for a good deal, which is kind of what we're hearing about with GP of like. Things are weird right now, and if you can get a guy, get him in a salary cap league, and then figure it out is his salary could be an asset. You could use around the League or maybe Brooklyn's signings available something like that now. You can do some things with but. This is not a Joseph Martinez replacement. It's not a Tito Viagra replacement sounded Julian. Replacement I would agree with doyle. He's not as versatile. He doesn't fit NS cleanly at any position, although types of. Cross the balls well yeah like. The one of the big knocks on your dom over his career. Is He just forgot? Who plays wide and is really uncomfortable sliding centrally? He's not an effect crosser of the ball. It's a it's a weird signing so weird size and we'll see what it means. We don't have to worry too much about it during the unless his back tournament because he won't be playing in that. Final News before we get to Wando to Caleb border and Schoenfeld in a bow. I don't know. Maybe give it five years. We're going to have some elite defensive midfielders in this League Janina retired went straight early Galaxy Academy alongside is partner, Marcela Service and Shari Joseph The legend the heartthrob of of David's life. Is Now the New England Academy as well so this is what we need baby. We need those guys training up our defensive mids of the future. Always you because I know you. You feel some type of way about show. Three amazing players jacked about all of it. Although all say, this jewelry had Granada playing I think the best in their group, and CONCACAF Nations League as head coach, so the fact that he doesn't get a look as an assistant or even a first team coach and mls straight off the bat, when other players who have zero coaching experience opportunity I. Think is wrong, but new. England has not had. Had A good academy. It has been something that awful has talked about consistently adding a US L. team has been been a big part of that. They've signed a number of players. So if you're going to change things, this is a great guy to go with who was a versatile player. Read the game well. WHO controlled the game? It was a part of the best teams in your clubs history. And when you watch Granada, teams play like inset settings. where it was hard. Fields were bad travel with four. They played soccer. They tried to plan everything. They wanted to play with the ball on the ground. They had a belief who they were. And then they dominated every team that came in front of them so I'm really excited to see what he does, and hopefully this means he's GonNa, stick around. You can finally come on Etr. Phone with them again like two weeks ago, and he was like I got trendy man I was like well. I will get you again someday showery. Joseph storytime right here someday I will get to hear Dave talk about CONCACAF Actual Games happening. Because just little snippet got jacked. Out of these interviews starting with Chris, Wanda allows been Kayla Puerto of the crew and Aaron Schoenfeld. We'll be back in a second. All right always a pleasure to have him on extra time. Chris Lund allows key the goal king race. What's up, man? Guys thanks for having me. Joy, being. Joyce, you guys get. Good to see you to be real man I saw the ugly sandwich photo. I? Do like Awry Brad or pumpernickel or whatever that was? How's the food? How's the food? I want the Turkey on Bro. Show. I mean it's A. Sandwich, getting Turkey, and you're getting break, but that's your twenty four hour, quarantine meal and the lunch. Yeah, definitely WS and nothing to write home, but the rest of the meals over team meals have been together after that Once you get out of the quarantine. They've. been solid meals. They've been good and let's get. Used to it, but it's still so the nice down here. Have you seen. The news going around with see Dallas and this was sort of what we all knew could happen and what would happen, which was eventually positive tests? What do you think about that news? Personally? Do you feel safe? How do you feel as far as the bubble goes? Yeah I it's. Own I've come. One you know as a team. Captain, the team and know. How are all? Our guys have gone about I think that we've done the right things have gone. The right right way is about it and I think leaks taking the right protocol and I. Do feel safe being in this bubble that being said though that we do have people in the bubble now that are having positive tests, and so that kind of. Flights the bubble so. That's kind of my whole. Scheme of things that kind of we need to get it down. Out of it, and so that's the I said only stuff we need to take and the team coming in and make sure that they're safe and make sure. Make sure they're hitting all the right protocols coming in here and. They're not easy. We've taken tests I've had. My brain tickled more more than a few times now so it's it's tough, but we you need. You need to be done and need to get it done. This is much bigger than an individual and we all know that and I think a lot. I'm actually in northern California right now. My wife is expecting three weeks from now from that you have a family. How difficult was it for you to leave your family? What did you have to feel comfortable with that decision? while. It is very difficult decision. It is extremely hard, and it comes down to being having your family, and especially when that comes out so sometimes it's it's nice to be individual and have your individual family to to take care of and. Some have different different circumstances I'm very lucky. I have an amazing wife. To, great kids who who give your crazy, but she she knows to control them enough had experiences being gone and she's. Unbelievable with that and also has family around her family's there in my family as well it's so it's nice support system to have in place there and I know that she really appreciates as well and other guys don't have that though and it's They don't have that luxury and it's. It's. You know it's. It's dire at times it's it's tougher for the people when you leave your family's at home and it's It's always tough on the road. You guys are the first team in the bubble because you couldn't train, and you wanted to get down there and start working for the teams that aren't there yet for people that haven't come in. What's your advice on what to bring on how it operates on? You know how the whole the whole thing goes out. Bring water. Stay hydrated. I think that's the biggest thing coming in. It's hot down here. I think it's been. In between ninety and one hundred, both temperature and humidity, and so don here for weeks so definitely a warm one Being said bring as much little things you can do keep the time it. It is actually. Very nice though to catch up into bond with with your teammates we. We've been down here one week now. And there we have three different rooms that are player rooms, and so we're able to play cards and we all chipped in. We got this pretty cool Dartboard, so we've been having dartboard. Tournaments, going on and they've been. Interesting because they're loud right now so I'm wondering teams come and. How that's going to be taken care of, but it's actually Kinda Fun. Though catching up and playing poker and cards with a with all the guys, it's fun bonding in that sense, the Hustler! Darts cards. See We! We actually have a few guys all over day. Holson is definitely the best Dr Player We have some. We have some guys Fiero, though some guys that like to take action though so. You guys. Like to like to get involved, so I would say there's probably about ten of us that whenever game it is, we're we're ready for. Whatever this starts. Poker. We have this little foosball like? Looking game. It's fun what scares me as we've seen you celebrate goals to see you do like hit. A good shot starts in your hand and go full Wando that to me is that's warning signs? It actually did keep composure. It's after when mixture no sharp objects are in your around me before I started my celebrations or start adding in anyone else my celebrations here we go. Blow some. Welcome to him I? was going guys. Thanks! Sorry. I'm a little bit late. I didn't know you know zoom loggins. It takes forever these days, so, but I don't want to keep Wanda waiting at all this guy. I mean I'll have to. We were just about to talk about the best soccer players in Bay area history. Absolute legend. Basin Kaelin stories and told the Fuego I will always tell them killing. It was the best by far on our team we. Grew up playing together in a different. Story. Come on. I mean always I think my favorite, Kaelin. Move was that he didn't like to head the ball, but at the same time he has amazing hops, so he would jump in front of the defenders so high that the defender would lose sight of the ball and Caitlyn would duck at the last second. And if you just spend gone and One of my favorite Kaelin moves and Who's going to work yeah I? Don't know how he didn't win state. Cup I'm still I'm still people ask me. They didn't. Track meet I take personal blame. No Actions Bill gives me I saw no play golf with him. Me playing one so um yeah. Well. That's all right. People ask me all the time by the way they're like. They're like so H- like Wando at the time. Was He like? Did he just become this amazing? You know all time goalscorer later in life and I'm like no. This dude scored every game like clockwork. It just was just always. A knack for the goal, so Yeah I saw it is people say oh, like what a surprise, but I I saw it from day one so. Ten years. Of double digit goals. Maybe my worst professional moment was predicting the Wanda. Digits which is getting started. I are you a lot of credit? Just just needling me man, I saw a quote from you. You said kind like to leave. The door cracked on on retirement. It looks like twenty. Twenty was going to be the last year of Wando. Yes this happens. This is different. Stay with US Wando. Don't leave us. Yes so how? Talking to life in a full tank and I was ready to give it out all twenty twenty. Know I had many scenarios played on my head I, Don I had the best and I thought I had the worst play. I did not have this. This was actually something did not have pegged at I'd many other scenarios to be honest, but this is. This actually wasn't A. But being saying I still it's pretty cool that we have this. We have a term that you get to win. Champions League birth and it's it's. It's a special tournament and some that you know we were competitive. We want to win. If things, go right I'm still planning on going on twenty twenty eight, but. I mean. I don't know. I? Just wanted to. Crack misleading on. Locking the DOOR I. Just keep it. Keep it at least so close a little bit so. Can still still move by the end of this tournament as well. That's also. I mean we've been watching the last dance over this time, so I I think it's like you know maybe a step away, does he? Not step away comes back a little. Documentary and the final season. I mean I could see it work. Like. Thinking you've got gotta producer on your side before we get to ask this one because I was wondering what you would do during your two year break and I was guessing golf or basketball to hear. That's what you do in the season, we success basketball player molest not name to you. When I've seen personally, it's like apar-. He's got skills got good handles. My Act. Can actually really well. I know that shocker. He's actually really good. He's a really your basketball play I need to give them credit to. That's actually just killing me inside. Actually getting credit that he is a small player, but He is he walks you up all right? Tell us about the. Tell us about what it was like not being able to train together at least and where you're at with matatus and his system and everything had demands of you with that heat with all the crazy conditions. Yeah, it's definitely difficult you know. We had a very regimented plan and we had a program that I. To looks of it I believe everyone followed I know i. did I know many of the guys did to a t because? We knew once the ball was rolling with. It was it wasn't going to be were easing our way back into it. It's full Canon ball into the deep end. With not. About him and you know even Orlando to as soon as it was, it was tough in San Jose we are. We ten days where we got to do. Is. Training, where you had parts of our own feel, they a quarter of a field, where we got to dribble and do fitness and. That was in the sad thing was we were all excited to do it? Because it was so long 'til we were back into it and so once you know I think it's worked in. Because once we came down here. Florida and we got play. Let be eleven. Everyone's been kind of ready to go, and it's. It's been exciting we're. We're still working our way into getting everyone full ninety nine hundred. I think everyone will but should be fun. Llandough in those in those moments where you have individual sessions, in you know your game and and your strengths at this point, but when you're when you're focusing just individually on on your game and preparing for the certament one or some of the things that you focused on. Some things actually that I do. Focus on our especially my touches. Working on dribble. Especially when I'm tired, just keeping the ball close using all parts of my feet. Keeping the technically sound when I'm in there and then also just mistakes I know I've always said I've never been the shortest never been the fastest so I better be accurate I've ever be. Better be precise, but what I do precise with would how I play, there'd be cleaned with it as well and so always trying to work on that and perfect that as well. You said that you would like to work with the Kademi after whenever it is that you retire door open door closed or cracked, whatever and I hear you talk about the individual side and how you've maximized your ability. Let's say I'm pushing you into the academy right now. We've got crop of young goal, scores or young attackers or young. Whatever's. Do you pass your information on. How do you pass what what you've built over the years on? What will you focus on? The. One thing that I feel comfortable as being in front of goal, and so I would work with them and being from the goal in something that is always. Helped me as kind of give me an edges that Tommy was get to the first post. You get to the first before defender more times than you'll be able to get the ball for stay at. The deliveries there and you have good teammates and I'm lucky that I've got teammates. Get to the near Post. You beat the defender there. The ball be there in Cana knows John Spencer, your heart that into us and You know that some that always stuck with me. On I can I would always. Work with them is is movement on the box and. Them taking shots from twenty five out. I would have You know from twelve in in in just.

Chicago Tonight

October 12, 2020 - Full Show

"Good evening and welcome to Chicago. Tonight I'm Brandon Friedman and I'm parachutes on the show tonight. I speak to we ought to be alleviating the burden on people across Illinois. But opponents say the so-called fair tax little more than a tax hike here from both sides of this hotly contested measure. I have carefully considered the arguments presented by the party's. Day One of confirmation hearings for supreme. Court justice nominee amy, Coney Barrett. A new study says as many as twenty percent of chicagoans may already have been infected with covid nineteen. Southwest Airlines is expanding service to O'hare that and more business headlines Cranes. The top one percent holds more wealth than the bottom fifty percent with new data from the Federal Reserve may mean for economic inequality in America. Community groups on vain vision education about. Christopher Columbus. It's done. It's over nothing I can do we're going to go forward gonNA rebuild, and that's what we're doing. And I kind of camera store in Chicago rallies back after a devastating fire. There's this thing of like always very visible in my community because I stand out for being queer. And how one nonprofit is working to ensure Latino Lgbtq you can find role models in their communities. But first, today's top stories. Today marks what is controversial federal holiday as many activists are calling to rename Columbus Day as indigenous peoples day in a tweet mayor. Lori lightfoot says quote as we mark this holiday and what it means for Italian Americans and others we must acknowledge indigenous peoples have been exposed to racism and other unspeakable horrors throughout our history. She went on to say that the city is committed to reimagining how statues live in public places spaces lightfoot ordered several statues of Christopher Columbus removed over the summer after they became sites of Commotion Between Protesters and Police. Officers and coming up later in the broadcast Paris in his guests will talk about education around native American and Italian American history. The Illinois Department of Public Health reports more than twenty seven, hundred new cases of the corona virus plus thirteen additional deaths that makes today the sixth straight day of at least twenty, five, hundred new cases statewide. The statewide case Total is now nearing three, hundred, twenty, two, thousand cases and just under nine thousand deaths. The State's rolling positivity rate is four point three percent. We'll have more a new research about Kobe. Antibodies coming up in just a few minutes. So. What is white sox manager Rick Renner as reward for leading the team to its first playoff appearance in twelve years, he's out of job runner Ria Anna SOx have agreed to quote partways. The team had a breakout season short as it was because of the pandemic posting a thirty, five, twenty, five record but lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Oakland A.'s runner rea- drew criticism from some quarters for his lineup decisions as well as how he handled the pitching staff general. Manager Rick Hahn described as a fantastic baseball man whose fingerprints will be all over the white Sox if they win a championship. Renner Rio was promoted from bench coach to manager in two, thousand, sixteen but Hans says the next manager will likely come from outside the organization. And out of Carol Marine and the debate over the proposed graduated tax amendment Carol. brandis perhaps the most hotly contested race on the ballot. This year isn't between two candidates. It's over whether the state should go from a flat income tax to a graduated tax with rate set based on how much residents earn groups on both sides of the issue of been spending huge sums of money with a major advertising push on TV and online in Illinois Grocery store. Clerk. Pay The same taxes this is unfair. The fair tax will help our community grows stronger. Let's change the system and right these wrongs. There's a tax hike amendment on the November ballot. It would let the General Assembly change income tax rates on any group of taxpayers at will and lock their new taxing power into our state constitution. Joining us to discuss the proposed amendment are John Moment. Of. The group vote Yes for fare tax and Tony Dunkin member of stop the proposed tax hike amendment group at he's an owner of a body science personal training shop in Kenilworth. Welcome. Both of you to Chicago Tonight John I'll start with you opponents argue this amendment will hit business owners small and large. Are you concerned this measure is going to drive job creators out of the state. Well. There's a lot of misinformation out there. So let me just start with this anybody who makes two hundred, fifty, thousand dollars a year or less in taxable income including small business owners. You know after subtracting expenses. Will. Get A cut. Only that three percent of tax payers above that will pay a little more. For the vast majority of people in the state is not a tax increase at all it's cut. Will ask the higher income people to pay their fair share a quarter with reasonable relationship to people's ability to pay. And it will generate desperately needed income for for the state on priorities like education and healthcare. Tony. So why should mostly business owners you asked about? Tony. Why shouldn't the highest earners? Illinois. Paying more taxes, verses low and middle income residents, many of whom are black and Hispanic and women. First all thank you so much for having shown carols, president tops, you and speak with. Are, John Brennan compensation. I Wanna point out something firstly hormones, but this is not about who gets taxed and how much this is specifically about. Springfield politicians the power to make that determination on their Rome to set the amount that each income category has been. So this is not about percentages of people who are going to be accurate affected. They can change all that today's after election. It's important to point out that this is the worst time to raise taxes, and again, people are fleeing are stained faster than anywhere else in the mid west and yes springfield politicians strictly want us to trust them in give them power did not deserve. John. Springfield lawmakers get more power vis-a-vis this amendment. No. The. Amendment doesn't change the power they have to set tax rates they had their power. Now what it gives. Them is the ability to calibrate that in a reasonable way according to people's ability to pay the data shows the look there's thirty three other states and the federal government will do their income tax this way and the data shows center for tax and Budget Accountability Study of all those states, there are twice as likely to actually cut taxes on the middle class have graduated rate system So the The data just doesn't support what the opponents are saying here, and there's no new power. The General Assembly is always had the power to set rates. It's always been hard and it will continue to be hard. It should be hard but it's not a no power it's with the it just gives them a new tool. In. The toolbox to calibrate rates according to people's ability to pay to end this unfairness we've had in the tax system and I should say to this is a perfect time to cut the taxes are essential workers. Not a tax hike for ninety seven percent of the people in the state including the nurses and grocery clerks and everybody else working so hard during the pandemic. So, this is exactly why we need to do. This is Dan this unfairness Tony I. See you're shaking your head go ahead. Well first, and foremost again, this is where we have real need for better information. More honest disclosure. What John is saying is that again, politicians have always had the a the ability to raise the tax. You know they raise them two times in the last ten years each time promising that they were bored them after a certain amount of time. So we don't trust the belief that somehow they're willing to make it easier on us. Now, this here is where the difference in power lies. They have no power to segment and then charge accordingly they have to tax everyone at the same time the same rate to able to as Johnson, how bridge is a tower and a dangerous power. They don't deserve and we don't need. In point of fact. People elect lawmakers who give those lawmakers the power to make those decisions and lawmakers have always been able to open the door to certain kinds of taxes. Correct. So. Prince now directly. The differences their ability to separate people by in call, and that is something that had never been heard of in this state when we elected officials John why separate people by income? Why is that it? Often for the reasons I've been saying it's incredibly unfair not to do that. Are Flat Tax System. We just had the institute of Tags and Economic Policy in Washington that a study over the last twenty years because of the flat tax. The Black and brown middle and lower income people pay four billion dollars more in taxes than they would fare tax had been place and the wealthiest people mostly white. They. Twenty seven billion dollars less. So the flat tax exacerbates the the wealth transfer from from lower income black and brown people to the wealthiest people mostly white. People who've been desperate now these last few months do something significant inconsequential about racial inequity. This is one of the simplest wasted doing. All. This said this amendment fail. Where's the money going to come from? Tony to shore up this gaping hole in Illinois taxes and I it's really important to point the cells and that is that this measure will not fix the problem that we're having Springfield, which is completely missed budgeting. All of our money, the taxes that we pay will never be enough if we're not making sure that the taxes are used properly and that we have to do things to take the budget down. Over one now, secondly, to remember this to the thing that has to be remembered is that there is no. On how much are person has stirred before their tax different number that's not the vote. The vote is about whether or not. We can segment people into different to financial categories based on how much they earn and then come up with how much tax them very fast. Last word. Last word is that this is the worst time to raise taxes. Springfield allegations want us to trust them I. Know Better because of their past history people are fleeing sleep faster than any other time in the west and they sort of. Totally me stop you and give. final. Thing to say before our time is completely none of that addresses, the actual issue which is the unfairness of the current system. And and You need to go to the polls and vote yes to make the income tax system both more fair and more adequate to support shared priorities. Involvement Tony Dunkin. Thank you very much. I'm sorry it goes so fast and is so short, but we're grateful that you are here and now. Go No. We go back to you BRANDIS. Carol thank you. The public is getting to know Supreme Court nominee, amy conybeare it the Senate, Judiciary Committee Open Barrett's confirmation hearings today just three weeks before the November election. The day was reserved for coney their statement as well as opening statements from senators on the panel parachutes monitored the proceedings and has the latest pair Switzerland today well, Brennan Judge Amy. CONYBEARE. Berisha's forty eight years old obviously has. been on the Seventh Circuit Appellate Court here in Chicago South Bend Native Notre Dame graduates she introduced the public and those that attended the hearing today to her family, her husband and six or seven children that were in attendance. Today. She talked a little bit about her judicial philosophy guided by the notion of quote Unquote originalism the philosophy that was championed by her mentor former Supreme Court Justice Antonin. Scalia. The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the people. The public should not expect courts to do so and courts should not try. That is the approach that I have strived to follow as a judge on the seventh circuit. And all this brand comes amid election for president that is already underway and amid the Kobe outbreak that can be traced back to her introduction in the rose. Garden the White House two weeks ago. Now, Democrats pounced once again on the timing of all this noting the McConnell rule from four years ago that no supreme court nominee should be heard or have hearings in the year of presidential election obviously the Senate majority leader's flip that face this year and we're very close to the presidential election. But despite the controversy most believed the die is cast here. No one's mind is really going to be changed whatever side senator comes out on it. So what then is the point? About the election and both sides are playing this to the extent, they can in order to help their side in the election. I mean Republicans want to say, Hey, remember why it's important to vote for Republicans we get to make choices on the Supreme Court. A conservative like Justice Scalia like justice. Justice to be Barrett and on the Democrat side, they're saying it. So important vote democratic because we care about things like healthcare like the right Javan abortion. and. Therefore, really important to go to the polls next month in cash belt. And true that notion that this was really about the election next month Judiciary Committee member Illinois Senator Democrat Dick Durbin brought up the affordable care act in echoed the fears of Democrats that a future Justice Coney Barrett would overturn the affordable care act as a case is set to be before the court next month. This is the case in which the trump administration is urging the court to strike down the entire affordable care act including protections for tens of millions of Americans with pre existing conditions. It's unimaginable that in the midst of a pandemic the Republicans want to strike down a law, the twenty three, million Americans rely on further personal health insurance and millions more for the protections given to the writing your future insurance policies and other side of the aisle. You had Republicans making the case that conybeare it is being discriminated against because of her Catholic religion. This is something that they've been saying for many weeks and it's something that Democrats have so far steered clear of. This pattern and practice as we say in the law, this pattern and practice of religious bigotry because that's what it is. When you tell somebody that there are two Catholic to be on bench. When you tell them, they're going to be a Catholic judge not American judge that's bigotry. So, pairs is there any evidence that's emerged so far on how she might vote on something like that or other issues like abortion contested presidential election those are all the ten thousand dollar questions Brandis and everybody wants to answer everybody is looking for insight into this. It really depends on what comes out of the questioning later this week although nominees. Tend to stick to vary base answers that don't really give away much about how they would rule now fifteen year colleague of Hers Notre Dame Law Professor Carter Snead told us today. He doesn't believe Barrett is an automatic vote to overturn the affordable care act or to only rule in a way that satisfies Republicans. I don't see any evidence at all that she's allowed her own personal policy preferences, religious views, personal views to infect her activity. As a judge at all I can tell you the Justice Barrett. If she becomes a justice will never sit down with the purpose of overturning any precedent or undoing any law as her first order of business. She's going to tackle the question the legal questions that are presented. She's going to read the law as an intern in light of its plain meaning or its original understanding, and if it if it's a question of overturning a prior precedent, she's GonNa take very seriously the considerations of star decisiveness in the in the disruptions that that might affect. Starts, of course, meaning sticking with the established court precedent of a previous cases. Now, professor sneed there told us that Coney Barrett participated in a moot court trial. Very recently, on this very case, the affordable care act case that's going to be heard in November and he says, she decided in favor of not overturning that law so. It's again a moot court. We'll see if that if that's a preview of how she's expected to rule on this, and of course, today Barrett paid homage to. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg the seat that she is now replacing okay. Lots more to come on this. I'm sure. Paris thank you. We'll see you in a Preliminary results from an ongoing study by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has found that as many as twenty percent of chicagoans may have been. Infected with covid nineteen, using a more sensitive tests than that used by most commercial labs researchers found corona virus antibodies present in one in five of all people they tested for from ten zip codes across the city. It's much more than what was previously shown in other studies and could indicate far higher levels of exposure and virus spread than previously thought. Joining us now to tell us more about what the study means is Dr Elizabeth Mcnally Director of the Center for Genetic. Medicine. At Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Dr. McNally thank you so much for joining us. So. To be here, absolutely, you found a twenty percent infection rate, which has said is much higher than other studies have found. Why is that in? What does that tell you? Well, as you mentioned, the tests that we're using is actually more sensitive a lot of the tests that I came out. Many of the commercial laboratory developed tests and went for a validating their tests and when they did that they had to do that rely on the blood samples actually taken from people in the hospital you're hospitalized with Kovin. Especially, if you're in the ICU with Kovin, you're going to have much higher levels of antibodies than what we see for people who just got exposed in the community. So when we develop our test, we made sure to validate using it from people in the community people who were hospitalized, who had lower levels of antibodies, but still very different from negative samples. The test that you used, it's also much more sensitive than some of the commercial antibodies antibodies tests tell us a little bit about how your test works and why that's important for this particular study. Yeah. So we developed a Tusk as I said, very sensitive based on the levels that we see in the community, but also very, very specific. So we see those pictures all the time of what the corona virus looks like. It's got those little red spikes that stick out of it, and basically the very tip of those red spikes is what the virus uses to attach to cells and invade them in. Infect them if you will. If you develop antibodies right to the tip of the red art that's called the receptor binding domain, we actually think those are more one they're very specific and to think actually more likely to represent that antibodies that protect you. So our test looks only for antibodies to the tip of that spike and what do we know about how long antibodies come last in a person system? So so far we got our earliest we had our tests setup and in the mid part of April and the first part of May. So the longest we have people at this point are people from May. So about four months out and we're seeing that they actually maintain a pretty consistent level of antibodies a few people that it's gone down on the majority of people that we've had the opportunity to look out for months at this point still have antibodies present. So in a tweet. Recently, president trump said that with total and complete sign off from White House doctors that he can't get parentheses immune and of course, as we can see, this graphic twitter flagged this tweet for being misleading doctrine McNally. If you have antibiotics or antibodies, me does it mean that you're effectively immune from getting covid nineteen? The way antibodies are normally made is you get exposed to a virus the first type of ban body making something called an idea it's like the first responder, but then you develop what are called these. Antibodies and they typically take about fourteen days or so to develop you see a nice of them by twenty one days and those are the ones that are much last much longer and give you more protective immunity and importantly it's your own cells that actually make those antibodies that called B lymphocytes and they produce your antibodies may talk to your other types of lymphocytes to coordinate that activity. President, has antibodies because he received eight grams of antibodies. As an infusion given to him on a week ago Friday, and so there's no doubt that the president has antibodies in his bloodstream but they're not his own antibodies. They were antibodies that we're actually synthetically made in a laboratory and then given to him to give him protection right away. One doesn't have a lot of data about how long that type of antibody lasts in the system especially. Because, it was my understanding of is given as an infusion. So we don't really know how long those last those aren't ones that are being pumped out regularly by his own immune system. We hope that given time the person's immune system will learn to make those antibodies but yes, he does have antibodies now but that's not a big surprise because he was given eight grams of antibodies so. FOCUSED ON TEN CHICAGO ZIP codes, initially. Ten particular, Zip. Codes. Yeah great question. So when we first set out to do this, we wish we could offer test every single person in Chicago, but we don't have the ability to do that. So so we selected ten ZIP codes. We selected five pairs of ZIP codes and we pick them because they were adjacent to each other in different parts of the city, these five pairs, but they had very different rates of Kobe positively, and so we wanted to ask the question whether we were GonNa then see different rates of zero positively knowing that the the. Antibodies reflect what happened with the virus a few weeks or months before that, and we're still doing that analysis. At this point, all we've done is just taking the aggregate data across the ten codes, and now we're actually hoping hoping to open it up to more ZIP codes in Chicago and also in suburban Cook County Doctor McNally. We've got about twenty seconds left, but about three percent of the city's population has tested positive for Cova, does your study suggests that there could actually many more people walking around with the infection unaware of it? Well. That's the concern we've really had that data early on from if you look at the South Korean data, which is that most young people who get this honestly don't even know they have it and unfortunately on the position where they can spread that and so that's really the very strong message. Here is pleased wear a mask, your wearing the mask. In case you're one of those people who have it. You don't WanNA spread it to other people a lot for experts like yourself to learn about this. I'm sure thank you so much for joining us. Dr Elizabeth McNally. Thank you. AN ICONIC CHICAGO? Camera store is rising from biliteral ashes of a fire and night of looting that took place. This summer central camera is so beloved. The store received more than two hundred and twenty thousand dollars in donations via gofundme me after news spread of its destruction Chicago. Tonight's Evan. Garcia, visited central camera to see how the business is rebuilding. Tim Schafer has been working at Central Camera for twenty six years. These days the camera store is doing business outside we have one one hundred. Things to sell. We're not really making any money doing. I'm the third generation owner of Central Camera Company, and we're at the south corner of where our stories, which is probably behind. You can see sign which is off because it's not working. Now owner Don fleshes grandfather started central camera in eighteen, ninety nine and moved to this south loop spot in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty nine. But on the night of May, thirtieth everything changed the one, hundred, twenty, one year old camera store. After a day of Chicago protests following the death of George, Floyd looters broke into central camera stealing merchandise and setting fire to what some described as a museum of photography. Don was notified after the store alarm went off he sped from his skokie home straight to the store past the police say tell me you better go back and save your car I said I. GotTa go try and save my cameras. Star. So this is what's left of the interior of central. Camera Don tells me the FBI told him the fire started here in the basement on the night of May thirtieth and it took more than six hours for firefighters to put it out ninety, six, ninety, seven percent of all the major equipment cameras, lenses, flashes new and use stolen. The rest of was on the floor I don't know if it were. As few pieces of remaining inventory cleaned and tested donnas buying new in used gear and accepting donations. Store actually one camera from nineteen thirty four was stolen from the store but then returned by Good Samaritan, who found it? He says it's it was on the inside of a window. And they must have broken out of the window with this and then dropped it in and he saw brought it back to US Amir weaker. So after the fire central camera reopened outside the neighbouring vacant storefront. University of Chicago Student Emma Boyden it's getting her film developed. This is undoubtedly places in Chicago, which will cut you'll negatives develop film you and scanning honestly I couldn't be happier that like. Central Camera Company is around its brings me a lot of joy. Because I love like getting my developed and I found myself videographer Jonathan Day hadn't been to central cameras in earlier this year and hadn't heard about the looting in fire majority of merchandise was no stolen or damaged. Have the fact that he's still going. Is a family run business. He's a fighter don says he plans to move central camera inside that neighbouring storefront within a week or two. The original store which is boarded up by plywood covered in words of support is undergoing structural work. Don says, he plans to open it by April or May of next year and no the seventy two year old doesn't plan to retire anytime. Soon Retiring his death I think. Most of my friends. And people read about and I don't read the the obituaries in the paper but. Everybody gets fat and sick and goodbye. For Chicago Tonight I'm Evan Garcia. Retirement for him despite losing more than ninety percent of his inventory, Don was able to rescue. One precious item as firefighters battled the blaze. He grabbed the first camera, his grandfather Albert flesh ever sold in eighteen, ninety nine. And Paris we go back to you. WanNa Resilient Guy, great story thanks Brandis and still to come on Chicago tonight. Chicago's tallest building adds a CO working office space amid pandemic that and more business news from cranes. The top fifty, nine billionaires in the US have combined net worth greater than that of the bottom fifty percent of all Americans combined look at what these numbers mean. How community groups envision reteaching the history around. Christopher Columbus. And how one nonprofit is highlighting the contributions of Latin necks LGBTQ, role models. But for some more of today's top stories for the Sixth Straight Day, the Illinois Department of Public Health reports more than twenty, five, hundred new. Of the Corona virus with more than twenty, seven, hundred new cases today and thirteen additional deaths the state's case total is now nearing three, hundred, twenty, two, thousand cases and just under nine thousand deaths. The rolling positivity rate is four point three percent. NORTH CHICAGO-BASED ABBOTT LABS says it's received emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of a new antibody test. The test could play an important role in detecting if someone is developed antibodies to the coronavirus that last only weeks to months after infection. Now the company says it's important to paint a complete picture of where patients are in their recovery to inform treatment the test abbots seventh to receive emergency US author eight authorization that is for the first time. Since it began flying to Chicago in nineteen, eighty-five, southwest airlines will now fly from O'hare plus his Cova clubbers businesses data from the cook. County Treasurer's office shows who owes millions in property taxes and the owners of Willis Tower takes a chance with co working office space here to go behind all those headlines Crain's Chicago Business Reporter Daddy Eker Dan Great to see you southwest airlines flying in and out of O'Hara never thought I'd see the day. Why did they do this now? Well despite what's going on with travel right now actually seems like the time to strike. If you're south west, this is a carrier that's been known for Leisure and domestic travel, and you know that's expected to be the first. Piece of travel bounce backs for certainly sooner than business travel which united and American made their name on. So, this move would give southwest access to the northern suburbs, and there's a lot of people that can refuse to drive to midway to fly southwest, and the really is so much pent up demand to travel after all this is over southwest wants to be able to to grab some of that market share, and certainly there's risk because we don't really know win that travels GonNa come back but Interesting move by them and it's good for O'hare probably because you got an expansion going over there. For nine billion dollars that neons nice to have another carrier that's looking for gates, any airplanes to fill those gates all right. Let's move onto the property tax story Danny. New Data from the Cook County Treasurer's office shows different businesses that Oh millions right now I'm property taxes who are those businesses. Mostly the businesses in the properties that have been crushed by the pandemic. So we're talking hotels, balls, retail buildings. Shopping, centers downtown you have. The Hilton. CHICAGO UNDERSTOOD AVENUE THE W hotel short drive in the Drake Hotel on. They've all missed the the extended October first deadline pay their taxes I'm in the suburbs yet old orchard ball and Northbrook Court Mall, they're bigger questions for these owners of these properties about whether they're still going to be the owners, the properties a year from now especially hotels and so. Whether they're they can if they can't eight or mortgages mean the property taxes all part of that discussion. So some of them maybe haven't decided yet what they WANNA do and. How to deal with taxes. Wow. So they might start offloading some of those buildings down there. All right. The Willis Tower it's made the surprising move right now to lease some space to cut working is that a smart move right now given vacancies and office space downtown and a tough market for co working as well. Yeah I mean there's nothing in real estate that's been more polarizing than than what is going to happen to co working when the economy goes bad after all the expansion we've seen we work and industrious and others and and we're starting to learn that obviously the owner Willis Tower believes there's a bright future that's done a deal with industrious, which is one of the bigger players in co working for a full floor on the forty fourth floor tower. It's just this question of whether or companies will want the flexibility that working offers in a downturn or whether companies like that will will abandon ship and those co working buyers are going to struggle. So I think one thing with with industrious for Willis Tower that they probably like industrious has always focused on management agreements as opposed to arms length traditional Lisa's. So basically there's Sherrod risk here whereas revenue sharing and and maybe Willis Towers able to Get upside and also mitigate the downside. and. That's something that certainly landlords in the office world are looking to do right now we're GonNa have to watch where this all goes Danny. Thank you so much they experience. And now back to Brandis and more on the growing wealth gap in the United States Brandis. Paris new data from the Federal Reserve shows the gap between the rich and the not so rich in the US is only getting wider. The latest numbers show the top one percent has sixteen times more wealth than the bottom fifty percent combined. That's roughly thirty four trillion dollars compared to two trillion dollars joining us now to discuss what the numbers mean and how or if the gap should be addressed are Damon Jones associate professor at the University of Chicago's Harris School of public policy. He conducts research at the intersection of public finance, Household Finance and Behavioral Economics and Iran Brooke Board Chairman of the Ayn Rand Institute he's authored many books including equal is unfair. America's misguided fight against income inequality and he used to have a radio show in Chicago on am five sixty welcome back to Chicago tonight both of you thanks for joining us Iran booklet start with you please i. you know what are your thoughts on these numbers and and what they mean for Americans. Well I don't think they mean much at all. I don't think the gap between the one percent and the bottom fifty percent is at all meaningful. I think the real questions we should be asking ourselves is why people stuck in poverty why do we have limited opportunities in in the United States of people to grow out of property? Why is this thank nation around but the fact that some people let's Say the creative zoom that we're using right now and that have made possible during this pandemic. The fact that the creative zoom in the top one percent good for him. He's created lots of wealth is created lots of value. He should be where he is. The question is a question of how do we solve the issue poverty? Not How do we shrink? SOM- gap that nobody can identify which should be. Damon Jones so Though are evident within the wealth gap, and of course, we just heard your on Brooks opinion on that but according to data from the Census Bureau, in twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred, the median household income for a white family was just over seventy two thousand dollars for Hispanic Latino households. It was over fifty, six, thousand dollars, and for black households, it was over forty five thousand dollars do these numbers along with the latest numbers from the Federal Reserve, they signal a larger problem to you. You look at the trends over the long term. So over the last three decades, we've been seeing widened inequality, not just some wealth, but also income as well as in wages. I'm seeing a lot of stagnation at the median in below. So people in the middle middle class and below. And you seen basically outstrip growth. At the top both income and in terms of wealth being the most announced, and so I think there are underlying forces in our economy, but also changes in a way. That we employers an employee's bargaining over splitting, their prophets have changed dramatically over decades and those have. Left many families behind. The bubble that family. So with these new statistics. It's not a surprise, and if you look at the racial dimension in the US there are decades and maybe over a century of different policies as well as just. Larger structural factors that have helped to. Keep these gats persistent. The. Recent research. Papers being published last year and this year showing that the whole way in which we measuring inequality is just wrong. A cover story in the economist recently read. economists rethinking the numbers and inequality. Inequality could be lower than you think a lot of the numbers that have become truth because they've been repeated over and over and over again a just not. So The fact is that inequality is not getting much much worse than if you look at those numbers, the Fed just put out. The bottom fifty percent their wealth has gone up full x since two, thousand twelve. While the top one percent has gone up one hundred, seventy, six percents of four, hundred percent versus one, seventy six. So we really need to be careful about actually looking at numbers and actually measuring correctly there's a lot of methology when it comes to the issue of inequality Damon Jones you agree with that I mean you you just spoke. For to some numbers and you spoke about their underlying causes go ahead. Take things. One is that the measures from the survey consumer finance from the Fed those are regarded as the moderate measures of inequality within the literature. Well okay. So one thing they don't. Do is they can't capture the most wealthiest people. They don't have people in top four, hundred four and it's a voluntary survey in the wealthiest people are believed to maybe opt out of these long surveys at a time. So you want to think about the number of fed as a moderate estimate. There are more dramatic estimates and then the lower bounce minutes. Top one percents still owes more wealth than the bottom ninety percent in the most conservative cases in this debate in the literature the second thing about. The trends starting in two thousand twelve is that is out of the great recession. So you had people of more modest were hit the hardest dern recession. We had a collapse of the housing bubble, the housing market, and so their wealth would be expected to rebound more than people at the top. You have to remember when you think about percentage change where you start off matters a lot. If you start with very little on, you have four hundred percent growth. That number could be misleading because you're starting with a very small amount. Run out of time I, wanted to get to your Brooke. One question you mentioned you know they need to address poverty. How do we do that in the about thirty seconds or so we've got left. Well I think you do it by eliminating any kind of barriers to job creation. The way to eliminate poverty is to get people jobs into increase their productivity in those jobs because we just go up with fun activity and the way you do that is by getting rid of battery whether those barriers on minimum wages, which should be zero whether those barriers of licensing laws restrict ability of people to work. To enter the job market whether those barriers are the absurd regulations that we have on businesses. The restrict their ability to create jobs in Chicago is one of the worst in the country at this, and there's a reason why businesses leaving Chicago instead of coming to Chicago, you make it very. Difficult to create jobs, and of course, the other portion of it is a big part of of any inequality is educational inequality. We need to do something radical with school system we need to improve schools particularly for low income people on. Time left. You Know Damon really quick ten second. Sorry. But is it just a matter of education to remedy these problems? Educated Education is not going to be sufficient if you look at a white highschool dropout has a higher wage. Level of wealth than a black family with a college degree. So education is not going to be sufficient. There are larger issues here that have been built up over. Decades and a lot. More time discussing. Hopefully. Yes. I'm sure we'll have the two of you back to discuss it again, my thanks to Damon Jones and you're on your on. Thanks so much for joining us. Out a Paris and how some groups are educating chicagoans about Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day Paris Ernest today is a federal holiday, but not everyone refers to it by the same name right now, activists after summer of unrest and the tearing down the statues are still pushing for Chicago, to change, Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. However, community groups aren't waiting for the city's recognition to begin reteaching the history behind today's holiday and joining us to discuss this history are Gabriel Monte, the founder and President of the Italian American Heritage Society of Chicago and Anthony. Thomas Postal that co, president of shine, nation's Youth Council. Welcome both of you and I should mention for our viewers. We're not intending to have a debate over indigenous peoples day versus Columbus days but to talk about how folks are going to celebrate today years going forward. So Anthony, why is this time to celebrate indigenous Peoples Day? Yeah I mean for years. You know indigenous peoples and you know black communities have been oppressed and so you know we're using this day as a day to celebrate our mental health to celebrate our physical health and just reflect on the accomplishments that a lot of our groups have made throughout the year. A lot of the movement building has been You know. Led by a lot of youth in the city the Chinese Youth Council is the one that drafted. And submitted the ordinance in partnership with Alderman Rodriguez and Alderman Carlos Rosa to abolish Columbus Day and changes to indigenous Peoples Gabriel. Those Gabriel primanti you have an Italian American. That has a different view on Columbus Day. Then a lot of other Italian. American. Groups explain why that is. So our position is that Columbus should, in fact, be replaced with indigenous peoples. Day we in my view play if anything a supporting role to tremendous leadership from people like the folks that the nation US Council. We've gotTA start. Confronting. The. Compromises we've made in the past with where we trade backs in for positions. Make people feel good or that maybe were politically. Strategic and I think that what Christopher Columbus represented or a lot of Italian Americans was passed into whiteness and was part of our myth that we assembled in order to argue that we were part of a kind of you know preferred group in this country. And Anthony Thomas Postal. How About Non Native folks? How do you believe they should mark this day. Yeah, you know I I. I believe that Non Native folks You know obviously take the lead of indigenous people and Black Communities you know Gabriel is a great example of following the our lead and how we how we want to celebrate this. Day And essentially played that supporting role and see where you can hop in and supporting business in black communities by either reaching out to us for supporting us you know by coming to our events. Or monetarily as Gabriel. Americans. Believe Columbus good or bad? You know Italians fought to have this holiday to have recognition for the contribution of Italian Americans to the country. So what might be a better way to to acknowledge that to recognize that? I think that's a very good point. I mean we don't want to erase the the history of that. That's happened because elements of it are distasteful to us, and so just as we need to confront the reality that Christopher Columbus was enslavers a murderer, we also have to realize that our our history that includes Columbus includes this manufactured history, right so for China Americans, we held this person up as An exemplar we want to tell that story we want to talk about how they it galvanized the Italian American community when it was suffering a prejudice but how it came at a cost and I think that can be done while at the same time respecting and honoring the you know the reality on the ground of what the price was paid here in in the Western Hemisphere for what? The first domino that started with Columbia I want to get back to the notion of second but to Anthony, what about the way we teach indigenous peoples history in school. What's your take on that? Yeah you know it's definitely an issue on how it's taught a specific Toco public school. I am in Chicago public, school graduate I'm a product of Chicago public schools. You know CPS needs to have a mandate on teaching about indigenous peoples, day, and indigenous cultures every. November will talk about three different tribes, right the Cherokee the Navajo and LAKOTA and every time a lot of the time you're the only native student in the classroom and your looked at as the native experts. So the teacher, the students, the school look look towards you right So we need CPS to mandate. Actual history that is accurate and taught by indigenous peoples or Indigenous Peoples Gabriel. So there's an Italian American that you do want to sort of take the place of Columbus and celebrate very quickly Sepe. Garibaldi why him? So it's actually not the case that we WANNA swap out Garibaldi in Columbus we initiated this year we had our inaugural Garibaldi awards for political courage and we do recognize him as a great figure and his example of stepping in to you know the vicissitudes of of a moment and doing what was best for his people we think is inspiring I. would say if we're talking about. A kind of a statue, a figure that could be appropriate I'd also WanNa, talk about mother Cabrini with beloved. Obviously great named Gary I'm sorry we have to cut it off there. We're out of time, but my thanks to Gabriel Monte and Thomas. Thanks so much. Thank you. And yesterday October Eleventh Mark National Coming Out Day on Saturdays Latino Voices, WWW news director, and host. Ugo Balto spoke with an lgbtq organization honoring lat next role models, and here's another look at that conversation. National Coming Out Day is an annual awareness day to celebrate the act of quote coming out or publicly sharing one sexual orientation or gender identity. It's often a joyful celebration, but this is coming out days happening at an uncertain time for the Lgbtq community as the balance of the Supreme Court made tilt right word if conservative judge, Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed for the seat here to talk about. How they're insuring Latino. LGBTQ youth can find role models in their communities are beto. Mendoza founder of an awkward and a you know a not for profit organization highly highlighting the contributions of the Latin x q role models. He's also the current executive director of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and Antonio Santos. Director of the Gage Park, Lat next council and twenty twenty or north into you know induct. Welcome to both of you. Thank you. Thank you for having us. Let's start with you. The number according to you know can be used in a cruel way. Mexico. Can you tell us about the story of the term and y became part of the name of your organization? Churn and actually it's just not. There's going to be a movie that comes out next month. Not One, hundred, nineteen, th anniversary. There was a moment in Mexican history where in one thousand nine, hundred November, eighteenth one, a group of men were having a dance Forty two of them have has women have just as men and eventually there's this private gathering the cops come in, beat them all up and throw them in jail. One of them was a son in law of the Mexican president would feed you the Yes. So they released him and the remaining forty one where eventually disappeared for being gay beaten up jailed and basically disappeared. So under forty one is actually really kind of looking back at that history and reclaiming the number because for one hundred many many years that number has been used as a negative tag and actually that was my experience when I was fourteen years old kids that I thought were my friends nicknamed me forty-one and I didn't know the meaning of that until my dad calling me that. I knew then what it meant, but I still didn't know the history and twenty eight years later, I finally heard the history about that story and that motivated me to launch on her forty-one on that you know to reclaim educate others about our history but more importantly celebrate who we are today as many people end up telling our stories and they tell it wrong and so for us to be able to help you come out with knowing that there are role models out there will allow them to a process that's usually a challenge one a little bit easier. Turning a negative into a positive in. Thank you very much Alberto for sharing your personal story. Tell us how are each year's inductees selected? With, about two hundred people. And we look at a couple of fields. There's five basic filters we look geography. We'll look at age they have to be LGBTQ. Of course, they have different inner experience, geography I think I mentioned and just that their role models at their living their lives authentic. So there are a lot of leaders. But we mostly just WanNa make sure that that we really exemplify and put a spotlight on people that are doing some great things being authentic being themselves but also contributing to their community, and so I'm telling you is one of those people that really just stood out because of what he's already been doing at such a young age and you only get to see a sense of that from a distant till you have that conversation about what it means to come out what were the challenges? What were the surprises? What we're the support mechanisms and really just giving that child or that kid that's coming out a little bit of hope that their life can look like that or my I looked like them. Therefore, he can relate and it's also turned out to be something that not only for you but people my age and older are finding that source of pride sharing their stories and surprisingly enough the parents of the kids continues agent and others are looking at these videos and are thinking paying my kids going to be okay. Absolutely. Let's talk to authority i. told you congratulations you're one of the two inductees from Chicago on the twenty twenty list of you know what did it mean for you to be inducted this year? Tell us a little bit about When you heard you were going to be inducted. What were you thinking? What were you feeling what this recognition mean to you? I was really excited to hear that I was chosen to be Biden's of it's yours or anyone out considering that it's the nationalist Almond said one or two in Chicago I grew up West. siders should bottle in the lucky next neely. Arts ninety percent peanuts and there wasn't a lot of queer representation here growing up also to be inducted into the name as role motto. From us like mine CIDERS, rebuttal. You can be whistling, can be authentic and can make your life. Is Really Horton's Antonio. Let's talk a little bit about the term Latin X. it's a relatively newcomer to the Community Your Organization Gage Park Latin Council includes that term put some people feel divisive Can you tell us a little bit more about that? So some people do bill its device that that is their opinion. A We's that's next think we built an inclusive way to include all folks that sometimes we don't associated with what done, for instance, non binary boats, your votes, transit bolts, actual Venus of we know that are being exposed come in all shades. And orientations, and we build up the X in that hasn't consuming and show. We are challenging the BINDER. Advert. Though. With, Supreme Court seat in the balance now, are you concerned about the erosion of lgbtq writes? Yes but we've also been living that already this administration has done so much to her all the progress that's been made and the Granite Obama wasn't perfect. But what's happened under this administration has really pushed things back especially for the Trans Community. So we are very very concerned and the thing that we just WanNa. Make sure is that people get out to vote and exercise that privilege whether you call yourself let the next or Latino Or Hispanic or Latino. What we need to do more than anything at this time is nine and really taking back the opportunity for us to preserve our rights and also just inspire one another to be unified in a time where we need to be most. Albert Antonio Thank you for sharing your stories truly turning a negative into a positive again, owning that negative turnover into you know and using it to inspire generations of lgbtq youth. Thank you for your time and your insights. Thank you. Thank you for having us. And we're back with more Chicago tonight right after this. And that's our show for this Monday night. Please join us tomorrow night live at seven. A nonprofits guide on voting for judges in this year's election. And surprising story of Ernest, Hemingway as a subject in comic books.

"Good evening. Welcome. In Chicago tonight I'm Paris shots, and I'm Brandon Friedman on the show tonight. Change can happen at the ballot box. early-voting expands what you need to know as election day approaches. They need more training in you need to make sure that we have reformed as well if you're against, that's why they endorsed me. Police reform pandemic response, and the Supreme Court. We get into those issues and more with our third district candidate forum. I don't know if you have a cousin. And whether you agree with your cousin everything. and. We'll put our spotlight on the Pritzker family feud over the so called fair tax. And the Chicago Company hopes its technology will help people during the pandemic. But first some of today's top stories day three of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett Illinois Senator Dick Durbin questioned the nominee again today trying to pin her down on her philosophy of originalism when deciding cases that philosophy calls on interpreting the original meaning of the framers Wen coming to a decision Durbin also asked Barrett her views on voting rights and voting discrimination. Does the president have the authority to unilaterally deny the right to vote to any person based on their race? What would your answer be? Well, senator obviously, there are many laws in effect including the were -tection clause, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race including the Fifteenth Amendment which protects the right to vote against discrimination based on race. And we'll have more on the judiciary committee hearings later on in Spotlight Politics Governor Pritzker and state health officials are urging caution when celebrating Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays. The Illinois Department of Public Health released guidelines recommending dinner table set upset allow for some distancing I. Also recommends reconsidering any travel plans or travelling via car instead of plane or public transport. We'll let me be blunt. This virus isn't taking a holiday. It only wants to find new hosts, and if you think it's okay to let your guard down because some people seem fine. They got covid nineteen. I'll remind you that many young people in their twenties and thirties and forties or experiencing long hauler symptoms. Governor also warns Cova cases are going in the wrong direction I ph reports twenty, eight, hundred, sixty, two, new cases today, and forty nine. Deaths that makes for a total of three, hundred, twenty, seven, thousand, six, hundred, and more than nine thousand total deaths. The seven day positivity rate keeps ticking up currently sitting at four point, six percent. And now we toss it to Carol Marine and the candidates in a hotly contested Congressional Race Carol. Paris for the first time in decades candidate other than a Lepinski will represent Illinois's third congressional district in Congress, which covers parts of the southwest side and some West and southwest suburbs Dan Lipinski who has held the seat since two thousand and five, and who replaced his father who entered Congress in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty three was defeated in the Democratic primary by Marine Newman, a small business owner and anti-bullying advocate in the general election she faces Republican. Mike. Frizz alone who serves on the will county boards since two, thousand twelve and is an executive director of an office furniture business. Marine Lumen and Mike. frizz alone don't both join us now. But before we begin, we want to say to our audience and to everyone listening. This isn't a formal debate with timed and answers and opening and closing statements rather a moderate a conversation we hope and pay attention to time to ensure that both candidates are heard from but also willing to interrupt in the event of a filibuster questions maybe directed to both candidates or only to one of them. Welcome both of you to Chicago tonight Ms. New. Let me start with you covid nineteen pandemic still rages. The Relief Bill, the rescue bill that Congress still has not put itself on the line for is now kind of foundering and there is a question. Or not it should be passed or could be fast in smaller pieces as a sort of compromise rather than an omnibus bill. Would you agree with that? So, let's put the context out there. Right. We lost two hundred and seventeen thousand souls. This can dummy we had lost. About one hundred, thousand small businesses. It's devastated our economy and it's all because we've had no federal strategy and the trump administration and its Republican allies have chosen to do absolutely not there is no federal mandate. We did not enact the up the National Defense Production Act so that we could have medication and services and we did not provide support to. Cope. would. You support a piecemeal smaller set of bills for financial rescue than an omnibus bill? I would support a commitment to do that. So what we have to make sure on that we have is if injectors going to be a series of builder has to be specific and rapid tant timeline for each of those smaller bills to be passed, and they must include to make sure that the unemployment gets an extended further and that it covers small business and cities, towns, states, hospitals, and medical services, and we get more testing. Mr Zone on the subject of the pandemic I'm wondering do you have any reservations at all about the president's handling of that pandemic? Everybody can do a great job after the Fan Hindsight's twenty twenty. I think he did a great. Is Shutdown the. Plane's coming in from China, which is where we know this came from he did what he could assume. The defense and act we were adequately staffed with the products that we needed as soon as we need them but I think failed was some of the states. Decided to put patients in nursing homes that had a disease and I think overly shut down the state which caused economic problems number one, and then secondly I think if fostered additional Cova cases who came out and said that maybe lockdown is the best thing that we could have done just out of curiosity to the two of you. Mr Phrase Lone, do you wear a mask on you are out and about? I wear a mask if I go into facility that requires me to wear a mask if I if I decide I don't want to wear a mask. It's well within their right I think to say no, we'd rather not have you come in and I'm okay with it up for the most. Part I'm out in the open without a mess. Ms Newman do you wear a mask at all times are only sometimes? It all times. All right just curiosity. Mr You favor reworking the affordable care act and I'm wondering what guarantees can you offer people with preexisting conditions that they will be covered? No matter what. I think the ACA was a successful failure and what that means is we have to learn from that. There were things that we learn. We have to guarantee preexisting conditions and we have to try to ensure as many people as possible but we have to do it affordably. That is not what the ACA is doing. One Way to do that is to create more competition and transparency know when you go get your car fixed, you get an estimate you don't get that. When you go to the hospitals the doctor, we need to see those numbers and have the ability to look at different options especially across state lines so that we can reduce the price. So I do think that needs to be a major component. The president has said as much. Already, we also need to guarantee that we bring the prescription drug prices down the president is always already done that with the favor neighbors nation clause and started forcing those prices down by allowing competition to come in that's. Built on Ms Newman, you favor eventually moving to Medicare for all but many people are loathe to give up their personal health coverage especially employees who've negotiated through union contracts. How do you convince them otherwise? So the good news in my district overwhelmingly supports Medicare parole. The pandemic has taught us a very tragic lesson is that when on your health insurance is tied to your employer and you lose your job look what's happened over twenty million people in this country had lost their job and then in turn lost their on health insurance. So it has gained popular and what I think we should do and it's the most practical path is to prop up the way for as long as we need. Well, we migrate over Medicare is a program that is working well, not perfect nothing. Well. But study after study after study shows that it is the only health system that will bring down prices of services firm goals ensure that you can go to the doctor of your choice, and then with regard to unions, you know I have the great fortune of being endorsed by the NFL CIO and all of the Northern Illinois unions and they tell me every day because I meet them daily Union members as well as leaders as Gosh. It'll be great when we don't have to spend so much time and money on negotiating packages and I will just have my healthcare and All Americans will have health care to both of you. We receive some questions from voters in district and groups that work on issues. You undoubtedly will face this one comes from the natural resources, Defense Council action. Fund let's listen. Ninety seven percent of scientists agree that humans greenhouse gas pollution is warming the planet and two out of three people in Illinois third. Congressional. District are worried about climate change. What policies do you support to address climate change Mr I alone can you name one climate policy that you would like to sponsor and see enacted? I'd like to see us move to nuclear energy. Nuclear Energy is pollution free and yet has been given a bad rap because it's always attached to nuclear bombs but that's not the case if you take the Diablo Canyon. Nuclear Reactor in California that one reactor takes twelve acres of space to do the same thing with solar, you need fifty, four, hundred acres not to say that solar doesn't need to start coming in. We just did that in the new courthouse that we ribbon cut on. Friday. We have solar on a roof which I recommend it will provide seven percent of the energy, but it's backed up by the regular system and that's the problem with a lot of those renewable energies you have to back them up with facilities that have to stay dormant until the backup is needed because we don't storage right now is new would you a numerate climate policy that you would propose in like to see enacted? Sure and I think that the economy and climate crisis are intersect in a really beautiful way where we can create more robust county and so would I recommend do it's the most practical path lowered and I agree on overwhelmingly street is very concerned with this is that we we simply take the jobs program and make it robust. So what I mean by that is we address climate crisis vis-a-vis. Investing and transportation and infrastructure will which will create a lot of jobs, modernize our transportation infrastructure and in. So doing give a huge boost to the economy. Ms Newman in the primary you defeated Congressman Lipinski one of the most conservative Democrats in. Congress. But he was elected by healthy margins in the general election many times over what will you do to bring conservative and moderate voters more to your column. You know we've been doing this since the outset even before the primary we have brought together. So I've get four hundred Newton breaks throughout the district on the network, thousand thousands of people and we recruited Democrats. Republicans and independents to talk about critical issues. There's a couple things we all agree on is that we have to address working families, issues workers as well as the. Middle Class, and that's why I intend on rebuilding the economy and making sure that we end pandemic with the help of show Biden worst and not moves lowered fashion. So we have already built a lot of Polish impact I will add that the day after the election, we developed a Kobe relief program to assist other reluctance to make sure that everybody was taking care of. This pandemic doesn't care if you're a republican or Democrat or an independent neither do I I will work with the important with everybody. So we built our platform. The economic and help. Mister frisky loan. How would you characterize your own politics on conservative liberal real liberal spectrum Well as I've always said the first thing I'm GonNa do when I get in Congress going to join the problem solver. Caucus the same caucus that Dental. Always puzder that caucus? However, she wants to be in the of caucus which doesn't seem to want to work with anybody else. The problem solvers trying to come together to make solutions that both sides agree with. That's the problem in Congress right now, the congressman and the senators that are rank and file are not part of the discussion. Anymore the leaders are driving the boat and we need to get back to where the Democrats Republicans and independents come together in the middle. That's where I'm going to be at working with both sides so that we can bring. Solutions forward that both sides can agree to and that we can help the American public just like with the cares act they came up with a very, very good compromise on the cares act to get money out right away and unfortunately the two leaders are still battling it out just little reasons just out of curiosity can you name a piece of legislation that you believe that that bipartisan? solvers group launched an past. I don't have specifics on legislation what they are working on it as the cares act right now and they've come up with a plan that both sides could agree to. It's in the middle and I don't understand why our leaders are not coming together to help the people that are unemployed right now and the businesses. Those are the key to issues that we need to sell right now, the other issues can come down the line I'm working on cares act money right now in our county, we can't give it out fast the deadline is December thirtieth we may not be able to give out one hundred and twenty million dollars. Now, we received to help all of these different issues omen shelter healthier. Ms Newman your response to that in terms of the cares act and not being able to pass out that money quickly enough or well enough. Well I'm not sure of the dynamics on the board and why that's not happening. It has gone pretty on expediently on in other counties. So I'm not sure what's happening there. But on the the point of all of this is is that we do get relieved to the cities, towns, counties, and states hospitals on the unemployed as well as small businesses, and so would I recommend and I'm pretty old fashioned. Carol is I like walking down the hall rolling up sleeves and working directly people with people I don't eat branded caucus. Let's just talk and be respectful and work really hard to make sure the American people get out of this pandemic and we rebuild the Economy Miss Your district includes I'm sorry. Look. Brandon yourself by saying you're part of the progressive enough. The progressive policies don't work in the rest of it is meaningless in regards to the Act Cook County is a little farther behind they just announced their plan for giving out money to businesses. We're cutting checks since week. So we need to catch them up to where we are Ms. No. It's actually inaccurate completely but that being truth what I would say is you know on the good news is I've been endorsed by a wide body of people and I've worked with people for thirty years from across the political spectrum. I'm a former management consultant also legislative advocate for twenty years. So I have been in the business of working with Republicans Democrats and independents fully on a wide array of. Topics. So it's very comfortable in that space. Let's talk a little bit more about money because both of you are looking in your district at Midway airport in the city of Chicago is starved for cash and Lory lightfoot may not propose this. But if she did, she wouldn't be the first mayor to think about selling Midway airport for the capital it could produce mister frisky alone. Would you sell? Midway. Airport. I would. Not. And we've done that before and Chicago Tournament. Parking meters and skyways and private companies it doesn't work I think it should remain whereas right now in regards to helping the city I know that the city and all of the governments are going to be looking for money from the federal government and I would be in favor of helping them get back to where they were pre cova did but not to take care of all the ills from the pass Ms Newman would you so midway airport if bail up Chicago to some degree? I would not Italian several plans on my website to provide transportation solutions, infrastructure solutions that would work not just for the midway area but well, beyond that to solve transportation desert's create jobs and create revenue back into the city has transportation is all in housing are critical to on building the economies of any given area. So I would be a fan of that coach not selling midway Mr for as long you have been endorsed by the Chicago Police Union and other law enforcement groups. There's a huge outcry for police reform in Chicago, would you support congressional measures like a national registry of police misconduct or limits on certain policing tactics like choke holds? I support the Tim Scott Justice ad I think that act makes sense. It's also not an unfunded mandate. There are federal dollars that would follow that what we have to understand. The Snowman always talks about talking to the people in the district. I don't think she's getting the right word back because none of those unions, WanNa, lose their union benefits and none none of those residents, WanNa, lose their police overwhelmingly people are saying do not define the police we need them here. We need them supporting us especially in the worst in the worst. Areas of the neighborhoods they they're looking for more police they're not looking for less there. Are you proposing police? Now. What I'm proposing is what we've done on my team is that we have brought law enforcement and leaders together along with on the community and activist to talk about solutions underground we need to invest in mental health services, community services, and you know what? I believe that they are exhausted. Our police officers are exhausted. There S to do far too much. They need more training and we need to make sure that we have police reform as well. There there is an issue on a racism, a culture impact on my forum. A several leader said that there is a cultural issue on on almost police forces. So I believe we should shop together and talk about this and address this issue from the federal level with the justice and policing. Act Actually has a mandate numerator and several programs that would be helpful with transparency. I've also at the local level, we must speak to one another incompetent. And stronger communities Mr. I alone. Do you believe that there is institutional racism in America This Day? Not to the extent that. Beal out there ringing him billions and billions of dollars they haven't given one scholarship to a black person. They had them cleaned up one black community and they haven't mentored one black child. So we're there are being groups created here that are just stirring up the pot and my opponent socialist resume here doesn't doesn't want to disavow the defunding the police. She won't come out and say that you wouldn't have fun police dirt. There is a need for more. Health Mental Health Care Providers the Democrats in Illinois cut the budget on the mantle healthcare. We had to deal with that on a county low because of that, we cannot defend the police and we need to get those communities that are having. Systemic Racial. Issues we need to get them police. So those kids could go to school and move up the ladder is Newman your response to that. Yes so I'm reading is that Mike continues down this back he's been called out by the sometimes the Jillette hero news and several others there's no evidence ever of me using the phrase, a defunding police or abolish the police. In fact, I'm the only congressional candidate that has brought the police force together with the communities to have solid discussion. So we can say for stronger communities. So I'm really surprised he continues down this path, but I'll fortunately I was with the police last week at the recipe orders and that's not what they're telling me. They don't feel that you're bringing them together at all they feel that you were against them. That's why they endorsed. Because they want someone that's going to support them on the street every day just like the soccer moms that I talked to say, we want the support of the police. There's. A question that came up in the national debates recently, and that is believing whether or not. We should pack the Supreme Court with Moore justices to create a different kind of dynamic. Are you in favor of expanding the number of justices on the supreme? Court. So, let's look back at the last. Years. Ministry of Real. Madrid in court justices very quickly on and where we're at right now is that the courts have become very imbalanced would I will say is we can't politicize this problem. We all have to follow the same rule accumulated A. Would you would you expand the number? Look. On in addressing it, we need to follow the same rules and we need to review term limits and we need to look at how we. Maintain, fair and balanced through expansion ports. So I will take that is neither yes nor a, no mister frits salone. Do you believe in expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court? I will say no now and will say no forever. Character and honesty is the most important partner and elected efficient. You have to be able to answer the questions and you have to answer the questions and the primary the same as the ads. During the general election you can't change your opinions for I'm against the believes I'm with the BELISE after. A late term abortion Emma's Newman's four I'm pro-life. I don't change my views. I last. saw. US ever have said the same thing about working with the police and with activist. I've. Ever so that's an accurate Marine Newman Mike alone I, thank you both very much for joining us on. Chicago tonight. Make sure to visit our website for resources on voting including our twenty twenty voter guide to the general election. It's all in the W. T. t w dot com slash voter guide, and now Brandis we go back to you. Carol thank you and that November third election is now only twenty days away and still confusion abounds when it comes to the rules around participating, be it voting by mail or in Person Amanda Finicky joins us now to help clear things up Amanda. France those questions surrounding voting are reasonable. We are after all pandemic in because of that things are different for example, early voting, which began in some locations in late September but expanded in the city starting today in Chicago. There are now fifty one early voting locations. There's downtown super site than one per ward and election. Day. When you have to cast in in-person ballot, your assigned local polling location, Chicago residents can votes even registered voter change their address at any of these early voting spots in plenty of folks did just that today but likely repeat voters will find themselves going to a different location than in the past. Please note that most of our early voting sites for this election have been relocated in order to ensure their large enough and safe for all staff and voters. Headed Chicago's Elections Board Marisol. Hernandez also says, polling locations will look different. We have strict social distancing measures in place to ensure voting is safe easy and secure voters can expect to see six feet of distancing between polling stations plexiglass. Hand sanitizers and masks at every polling site. Of course, many voters don't plan to vote in person at all and that's intentional the Illinois state. Board of elections met Dietrich says typically about seventy percent of votes are cast on election day. But this year they're projecting hoping even it'll be closer to fifty percent already more than a half million voters had cast their votes by mail and Illinois, and that's already more than the total statewide for the two thousand sixteen general election. If you want to go vote by mail route, you still can technically you can request the mail in bell let up through October twenty ninth. But Dietrich does not recommend waiting. The problem with waiting until October twenty nine, th is that. That's only five days before the election you're cutting it, really close your your election authority may not be able to get your ballot to you before Election Day for you to mark, and then get properly postmarked door deposit indie in the dropbox. Now. Those are also new as in this time Mellon ballots don't actually have to be postmarked and put in the mail. You can drop them in me secure ballot boxes although warning not every election jurisdiction throughout Illinois decided to offer those. It's a local decision. Chicago does have them at every early voting location. We'll be putting them at libraries to now whether dropped off or mailed you do need to. Make sure that you're at home ballot is signed sealed. Then go about getting delivered in Chicago. You can even trace online. We're your ballot is at in the process. Now question that folks keep on having with these mail in ballots. What happens if you request one, then change your mind in decide you want to vote in person in stunt or maybe you're at home pellet was damaged dietrick says no problem. Take that ballot with you surrender it at the polling place and you'll be given a regular ballot to vote in person which you don't want to do is if you have received your ballot. Don't go into an early voting location without it be sure you take it with you. Otherwise, you'll have to vote provisional that really gives us already it's time to make sure you aren't trying to vote twice which, yes. Against the law. If you did request a vote by mail ballot authorities say give it time to arrive. But if you do get eager if you've applied for a vote by mail ballots. The election judge will know that because there will be a note by your name in the poll book and you will simply tell them I didn't receive a yet, and then you'll sign an affidavit to that effect and you'll be given a regular ballot to vote in purse. Dietrick says Illinois Law does require a local clerks and election authorities to notify the voter. If there's a problem with the mayland ballot, saying your signature is rejected or you didn't use the appropriate security envelope, they have to tell you that and he says that is another reason to get that Allitt back to election authorities as soon as possible because then there's time to remedy any potential issues which can't be corrected after. Day All of this is a whole lot of information, but the point is to make it easier to vote even especially during a global pandemic. So Wannabe voters who aren't yet registered actually do have until Sunday to do that online afterward Illinois allows same day registration and voting up to include on colluding on November third but that you will have to do in person friend back you lots of important information though Amanda Thank.

Today is the first day. Chicago can early vote at locations in each of those wars Chicago Elections Border Forts as of this morning, more than thirteen thousand residents have voted early at the loop super site while nearly half a million have requested vote by mail ballots.

Remember if people are coming to your home from out of town or you yourself will be going out of town, try to see if you can limit your exposures in the preceding two weeks. The fewer exposures people have the lower the likelihood of catching the infection. And spotlight politics team will be here shortly to run down a busy week on the local and national political scene I back to Brandis and a former surgeon on how he's using technology to help enhance public safety brandis. Pierce. Thank you a Brownsville native and former trauma surgeon has made public safety through technology his business I bride developing metal detectors and scanning equipment to prevent gun violence, and now by developing non-contact thermal scanners to protect to protect against the spread of Corona virus in schools, businesses, and even Chicago. City Hall joining us now to talk about how he believes technology can help get us back to work and school is Dr William Gates founder and owner of Yates protect Dr Gates. Thank you so much for joining us here on Chicago tonight. So, you began your medical career as a trauma surgeon. How did you make the shift from that? into making metal detectors for public buildings. It was actually kind of easy as a trauma surgeon. As you know, what you do is you repair people and prevent trauma. You're doing a lot of work on the back end I was more concerned on the front end and actually preventing and deterring violence. So I always thought and it's very simple. Thought that airplane terminal no one gets shot. There's a reason for that because there's a metal detector as x, ray machine and somebody trying to patch you down. So I took this same thought and start developing this and promoting this citywide nationwide and I think every school needs to adopt this to deter violence because violence you have to have an opportunity so this Violence also had some personal experiences with gun violence though. Yeah I mean unfortunately you know I'm a Chicago native I grew up on the south side and when I was in college one time walking my dog something as simple as that somebody took a random shot at me and asked me to come to their car and of course I said no and always you think all of somebody shoots at me I'll dog and you karate and jump through the window. But when that happens, you just freeze and luckily they missed. So I knew that gun violence is a big deal in Chicago even for me in the eighties it's. A big deal right now. What role do you think metal detectors should play in public safety? I think they should play every role I think they should be in every school, every municipality, every government building they should be everywhere again, no one gets shot in airplane terminal use the same common sense. A lot of parents are against it because they say the optics. Give their kids that thought they're going to jail. But again, most of the time the kids go through a metal. Where they going they're going to Disney world. So they don't think they're going to jail, but there are there are some metal detectors obviously that exist in a number of schools you know, how do you respond to that criticism that by installing metal detectors in school sort of fosters that prison like atmosphere schools Well, the main thing most people who are at schools have never been to prison so the kids have never seen a prison. So they don't even have a benchmark to know walking through a metal detector means anything about prison. That's totally the parents bias, and if you have a person walk through a metal detector in a non-discriminatory manner, meaning everybody goes not just one person goes because they look suspicious and you apply at the same way I think it's a beautiful thing Mike it's grown now but if they were not, I would insist the school had metal detectors. Similarly also pivoted during the covy pandemic to making a variety of non com contact temperature sensors, Howard public buildings, and businesses using these now. They're using them phenomenon and they work well because they promote social distancing may keep you six feet away the measure, your temperature accurately, they measured very fast and we know with covert most people, the most reliable symptom, and even if you look at trump, he had a fever, the people who are acer as symptomatic. Unfortunately, you're not gonNA catch them, but you'll catch everybody else. So if you can catch everybody else, why not do it? How do you respond to concerns that these devices? Especially, those that include facial recognition technology they are an invasion of privacy. Well that question has been answered by the the FDA. The EEOC anytime there's a pandemic all these social right issues get relaxed. So is not even an issue. If you do facial recognition at this point and take somebody's temperature. It might be in the future before the foreseeable future saying the next year or so I think we have to worry about that. So it's not a slippery slope then it's not a slippery as not even. A slippery slope were grey zone. It's surely black or white. It's okay. Do you think these devices have utility beyond the pandemic? Whenever something like normal zooms? My God. Yes. What we've found that just infectious disease alone just like the flu cuts down a number of working days people who have the flu will have a fever as well. So anybody going to work should not have a fever to have a fever. It means you're hyper Balas is receiving a signal that you have bacteria or virus. So anybody that has a fever should not be allowed to be to go to work. After the coronavirus with the corona virus. In in all time in perpetuity deavere you stay home. A little bit about yourself. Before we run out of time, you're outside Chicago native. What was your childhood like? My childhood was probably the best time in my life. Now that I think about it I grew up in a place called Lake. Meadows where lot of middle-class black people grew up my parents teachers and they stress the opportunity in America that just there'd always telling me just get your lesson and you can do anything you want and they were exactly right. So it was a very safe neighborhood I had my great friends join. And I love Chicago and here you are today our thanks to Dr William Gates joining us we appreciate it Thank you so much ramming. UP NEXT EARLY VOTING EXPANDS A property tax dilemma and a Pritzker family feud are spotlight politics team tackles all that and more. The Patrick and surely Ryan Grant for Creativity Innovation and entrepreneurship makes possible stories that enrich lives and inspire our communities. Property taxes, Pritzker family feud, and the battle over the supreme. Court, that's just some of what our spotlight politics team is set to focus on this week joining us once again, our Amanda Finicky, Heather Sharon Carol Marine and Paris shuts. So Amanda as we just heard you report, of course, early voting has opened citywide. Have that go today and were there any glitches? It didn't didn't. This time around. But this is actually something interesting that I found out in my reporting that I want to take. Note of that there were a lot of people that were confused. Illinois has a new state law in place for this election due to the coronavirus encouraging folks to vote by mail and people who had voted in recent elections but didn't request one by mid-september begun to notice for mistake Hey Yemeni you haven't voted by mail yet requested a remmel ballot just letting you know you can do that and some of those folks impacts had requested it issue was knows lag time between when local elections varieties have reported. Estate who had requested one or not. It really caused a lot of confusion the state in recognition of that has changed. It's worded. So if there are people who again participated in the past couple of elections but have not yet by meal ballot, they could any day now be getting another reminder from the state they're willing to say, Hey, hold off if you requested something after October second that we might not in our system. So that's getting rid of at least one glitch you are in line you have glitch, call your elections varieties even let us know we're interested to learn what people are experiencing while they are trying. And sticking with. City politics. So Alderman have unanimously rejected Mayor Lory lightfoot proposal to ease the ban on lobbying by elected officials. Heather Mayor lightfoot wanted to ease the ban explain this for us. That's right. So this law which was passed forty eight to nothing in December basically two things one, it banned Alderman from lobbying other units of government so. Can no longer lobby the state legislature or Cook County, for example, but it also banned other elected officials from lobbying city hall. So Mayor White. Foot said, well, wait a minute maybe that went a little bit too far, and she asked Aldermen to sort of scale that back to allow elected officials who are also lobbyists but don't have business pending in front of the city to lobby. Alderman. took no time at all in. That back saying that now is not the time to sort of roll back ethics reforms when it seems like every Friday, the Department of Justice is indicting another Illinois politician So it was a rare and very public defeat for the mayor. Friday. Federal Indictment Heather so carol, how does that jibe with mayor lightfoot campaign promise to clean up into quote unquote bring the light. Well it's kind of a wild moment for me Brandis I mean when the Chicago City Council, which has been lowest really in much for so many decades is raining in reform mayor well, I think that that's an interesting and really important molen whatever their motivation is I think that there is a kind of logic to what they did. So obviously there's a will not obviously but heather, you've been reporting on this there's some property tax pain expected ahead you reported on a surge and property tax non-payments is expected what effect is that GonNa have on an already strained budget for Chicago. Three percent of homeowners or property owners don't pay their property tax bill which triggers a whole series of penalties and interest and can eventually end up with your property being sold at auction. So but I noticed in the city's budget forecast that they don't expect three percent of people not to pay those taxes they expect ten percent of people not to pay those taxes and that's gonNa cost the city a cool sixty three, million dollars. That it's got a sort of bridge that gap until they can sort of put the screws to people and make them pay those bills. So it's just an indication of how serious the economic collapse that we're all living in is and how difficult it's going to be for mayor lightfoot to put together a plan that she set to introduce a week from today to sort of close that one point two, billion dollar gap. Here's what Are you hearing about Mayor Lightfoot a upcoming budget address how she's going to account for all of this? Well, the aldermen have been talking about different sources of revenue that they'd like to get more. Progressive Alderman Still WanNa Lasalle Street tax, which is something that just has not flown in the past. There's been talk of expanding the service which we hear every time that the city is bleeding money There's been talk about getting. More money from Springfield out of the pot that Springfield divvy is up to give to local municipalities. But Springfield is facing billions of dollars in problems on its own. There's talk of a pension obligation bond. This is borrowing to pay that massive pension bill that the city has to put into the pension funds. Every year that's been criticized I'm hearing though that the mayor's administration is trying to negotiate with labor unions about some sort of concessions. From employees and which would make a pension obligation bond a little more palatable I don't know which one of these things I don't think they know yet. Which, one. All none of these things are going to be part of the final mix or property taxes. That's probably won't even know that when she gives her budget address. Okay. So speaking of taxes moving onto your income tax billionaire pritzker cousins hurling cash at opposing sides of the graduated income tax amendment. Take a look at what governor Pritzker said today. I don't know if you have a cousin. And whether you agree with your cousin on everything. But. Let's just be clear. The fair taxes is about making the system fairer for the middle class and for people who are striving to get to the middle class and asking wealthy the wealthiest people in the state to pay a little bit more. So Carol. Tell us a little bit about how much have the first cousins and of course we're referring to retired colonel. Jennifer Pritzker. As, well, as her cousin, the governor, how much have they thrown at the so called fair tax at war and what are you hearing about the effect that will actually have on election. Day. Lear very rich people but Jennifer Pritzker has given half a million and her cousin Jay has given fifty six and a half million. So there isn't exactly. Equal balance of money of pritzker money going various ways. But the fact of the matter is is that this is going to be a very, very tight ballot initiative by just about everybody's lights and who knows if half a million is going to do a little something to tip the scales that fifty six and a half million has not I don't know but but I also don't. Think it's much of a family feud. I mean, these are cousins e N. She who look at politics differently, who will look at policy differently, and so it's it's not a surprise within the family system and Carol opposition to the fair tax though they have raised just under fifty million dollars seems like a lot of money for either side to put towards an amendment. Well it is and it's why. It's Pritzker calling it a fair tax in the other side, an unfair tax and. I'm just GONNA call it the graduated income tax in we're going to see but there is no question year is huge war and one of the big opponents of Fritz Kerr's tax idea is the richest man in Illinois can griffin. So the riches ox is being gored potentially by the PRITZKER graduated income tax. There's a lot being made about this whole notion of retirement. Are you going to tax my retirement? There is nothing in the amendment that says anything about retirement. General Assembly. Could tax retirement. Now if they wanted the politically, it's unfeasible. They're seizing upon comments that the state treasurer made saying would be politically easier to do a graduated tax on retirement if they wanted to do that. But I think the more actual concern of of the opponents people I can griffin is for businesses that claim a pass through income they pay the personal rate if they're if they do revenue five, hundred thousand and then they're gonNA pay more and fierce, maybe they'll leave the state. So both the city and the State Director of public health appeared on our show right here last night. Here's what Dr Ghazi case said about the states rising number of covid nineteen cases. So we have to make sure that we're taking all the necessary precautions because nobody I'm speaking for the governor, nobody wants another staying home or healthy at home or whatever. So, Amanda Dr K. You know she talks about everyone taking the necessary precautions, but the numbers are going up in this state Are we heading closer to reinstating some of the restrictions that we saw earlier on in the pandemic? New Indication that we're going to see a statewide stay at home order at this point, it's encouraging I. think it's sleeve up wash up mask up is the slogan sleep up by the way get your flu shot is the reminder but certainly, there is a concern with rising rates rising hospitalizations. The State is divided now into eleven regions up from the four that we began with as state. So we have seen some additional restrictions when those regions are seeing increasing cases positively above eight percent for prolonged period more hospitalization guy said that already sorry So that is something that certainly we are beginning to see but all of that could change the governor has. Said, he preserves the right to change everything in its tracks if he believes that that is necessary to try to quell the number of cases like we saw early in the pandemic. Okay. Let's get some national politics before we run out of time, the census count was stopped by the Supreme Court. Paris. When does it officially stop and what does this mean for Illinois? There's been so many cases going back and forth originally, it was the trump administration wanted to cut it down a month to end at the end of September beginning of October 'cause they said to get it processed in time for the year but the. Advocates of counting the census. So wanted to keep it going to the end of this month. The Supreme Court ruled that it will end tomorrow and it means that There's the chance of an undercount although Chicago is coming in at about sixty percent response rate right now, which is about where it was ten years ago Illinois's at seventy percent, which is about where it was ten years ago the nation it's better than the rest of the nation or the the nation's mean so I if there is going to be an undercount. Illinois could lose federal resources it could be underrepresented in in Congress, but again, I mean despite the confusion over the timeframe, it does look like the numbers are GonNa come in where they typically come in. Now speaking of the Supreme Court Judge Amy Conybeare at sat for another day of grilling during her confirmation hearings today. Here's Senator Dick Durbin. I don't know how else I can say it. The Constitution contains provisions that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race in voting. For. President can unilaterally deny you're not getting answer yes or no? Senator, you've asked a couple of different questions about what the senator with the president might be able to unilaterally do and I think I really can't say anything more than I'm not going to answer hypotheticals. So, Carol. This is obviously much more normal hearing compared to win justice br cabinet confirmed up, but she doesn't seem to be answering some simple questions. What's at work here? Well I mean some of the word hypotheticals Amy Klobuchar asked about things that are legal or illegal and could cite the actual law when it comes to voting and discrimination So the justice was staying away from taking a position even within the law is the position, but this isn't unusual regardless of whether you're a conservative or liberal. These justices come before Congress anymore to say pretty much nothing and. That's what we've seen what we are seeing. The Democrat and Republican side is the Democrats don't have the votes the Republicans know they do, and so they are each talking to their. Through this hearing with November election in mind that's what's going on these hearings. So Heather Mayor lightfoot voiced her concern over conybeare. It's conservatism her position on gay marriage referring to her own marriage to wife and first lady the Eshelman isn't gay marriage settled. I you know it was settled by the overfell decision by the Supreme Court however judge. Alito and Judge Thomas have said they believe that Susan was wrongly decided. So there's always a chance that there's another court challenge in that conybeare it could side with those justices and the potential is, is that marriage is like mayor lightfoot could be invalidated up that was one of the questions that conybeare. And did not answer. She also had to apologize for calling sort of gay people that had saying they had a sexual preference as opposed to a sexual orientation and that's legally important because the. Supreme Court has held that if you hit, you can't be discriminated against for an inherent characteristic although you can suffer consequences for choices. So it might be a fine line but I know that there were a lot of gay people who were very alarmed to hear her use that term and to hear her say not say that same sex marriages, the settled law of the land in and they're very nervous to be quite honest.

"Arms for the black community. Von booze has more making it play. What black america needs to know about covid. Nineteen vaccines was moderated by health experts. Faith leaders and several other organizations. The event was hosted by the black coalition against kobe. Nineteen some may wonder why a conversation was needed specifically for the black community according to the centers for disease control and prevention data. Kobe nineteen hospitalizes at about four times. The rate a white non hispanics death rates are almost three times greater. A recent press release indicates that the average age of weistein of covid in nineteen eighty. One for blacks is seventy two in hispanic sixty eight. The cdc recommends that individuals of seventy five or older received the vaccine. I but with the disparity of deaths in the black and brown communities the illinois department of public health and governor jay b brisker have lowered the age to sixty five mark. Morale is the president and ceo of the national urban league. He says one of his main concerns is how the vaccine is distributed but he also has other apprehensions various a lot of misinformation. A lack of information about the vaccine about the process used to develop a vaccine about the process. Generally use to develop medicines and therapies in the united states. Morale says there are questions about whether the creation of the vaccine was rushed. He also suggests that some black people aren't trusting it because of the past. He calls this the ghost of tuskegee. The tuskegee experiment was a syphilis. Study where black were told. They were being treated for the disease but instead they were giving placebos. Many of the men passed away from the disease or suffered other complications. Some members of the black community are questioning was then the vaccine. Dr king's mecca. Corbett is a viral immunologist at the national institutes of health. She was a key player in the development of the vaccine corporate advises that the pfizer and moderna vaccines are. Both messenger are any vaccines. She explains that. these are made. Up of lipid nanoparticles which is a ball of fat wrapped around. The messenger are in a there are no tracer devices. There are no microchips or anything of that. Nature that are being delivered with this vaccine. Corbett addresses the worry. The some have how quickly the virus was developed. She suggests that the public is only seen the last ten or eleven months of work but the preclinical science that drove this vaccine development extends even beyond my tenure at the national institutes of health. Even up to ten to fifteen years starting in the days of the sars corona vars. Dr anthony fauci also joined the forum. He asked a question about the mutation of the virus in confirmed that the vaccine is still effective against it he regenerated that blacks continued to be disproportionately impacted by the virus. And that's why two things need to take place one adherence to the public health measures that we doubled down and two when the vaccines become available to the particular people in the different subgroups. That you make sure you get vaccinated. Thought she says there is light at the end of the tunnel and as more people get vaccinated. He says we'll get closer to join back to normal. But until then he explains people will still need to wear masks. Keep social distancing and wash their hands. I'm yvonne booze about ten thousand workers across more than a dozen illinois. Hospitals run by os of healthcare. Ever seved their first dose. Of the corona virus vaccine christine. Herman checked in with oh vice president of pharmacy. Sandy alverson to learn how hospital systems are now working to get the vaccine out to the broader public in some places. We're going to the health department location because it might be civic center. It might be a community center And assisting with the vaccination process and then the state is responsible for accounting for the doses and managing the doses and others. Were still trying to figure out what that's going to look like. It's complicated any you know you wanna make sure that you can be the best steward of the doses that we get because they're not easy to come by you know they're still sluggishness within the supply chain both from visor. Moderna you just gotta keep working through the process. I understand from the champaign urbana public health department. They're saying that the doses they get. They're getting them out as quickly as they can. So the limiting factor at least in champaign county area is the number of doses are actually receiving from the federal government. What other factors are keeping this rollout from happening more quickly. So there's a couple of factors one is you know the cdc or the federal government definitely decides how many doses each state gets and then there has to be a division of doses within each community one of the things that illinois chose to do with the pfizer vaccine in particular. Because of the way it comes. It's only nine hundred and seventy-five dose increments. They chose to ship to all the different jurisdictions for the most part thaad so that they could separate that out and get to a reasonable quantity. That's going to meet the community's needs albeit that you know we might have received vaccine that's about two percent of our population. I mean it's really low and that's not much different than many of the other states. So the goal really is to get as much vaccine administered without wasting not something. I'm really proud Osf healthcare has really accomplished. We have very minimal waste. I mean we're finding arms you know for the doses that we get or we've coordinated with the various health departments in our communities to see if we can transfer it to be able to use the vaccine and all of that requires a lot of coordination. I wonder if you could address something that i feel like might be on people's minds once the vaccine is open to someone sixty five and older even with in that age group. There are probably some people who need it more than others if they have certain health conditions or other risk factors or if they're more frontline worker versus some who works from home. I'm curious if you could share your thoughts on how you would advise people to make the decision of when. I am eligible for the vaccine. Should i rush to get it or should i let other people go. I share. I like a lot to the conversation i had with my parents so my mom and dad are very different. In terms of their overall health. One of them has more health conditions. And i really encourage them like you've got to be closer to quote unquote first in line. And i. she may not be for first in line whereas that if they had to choose between the two of them. I would tell them to choose one over the other. It's one thing to do that in your immediate family group. It becomes a lot harder. When you're talking about a neighborhood or a county and so i think just sharing the facts explaining the process as best as we ran as we continue to learn more about you know how many doses that we can get will help but it's probably not going to be perfect and it's trying to answer. All the questions is timely. As we can. I do still refer a lot of people to the illinois department of public health. Faq's because those are really useful and they put some context. There's not clear timelines but it definitely helps people understand what's going on that seeing these salvors in the vice president of pharmacy operations for healthcare and she spoke with christine herman him still more ahead on state wide and a reminder you can find links to our stories just go to statewide show dot com. Stay with us this statewide. I'm shawn crawford jessica. Ramos lead efforts to produce a report from the education advocacy group advance illinois. That report was based on focus groups including one hundred twenty students parents and caregivers and they came up with recommendations on how the state should handle recovery. From the pandemic marine mckinney. Spoke with her about the effort. The problems from covid nineteen for students and families. What were the most severe. When we first went into this this idea of doing focus groups across the state we want to really just understand how education was going and as we were carrying our question and the direction that we wanted to go in. I quickly realized that we couldn't get focused on the educational experiences of students. They need to focus on what students and families were experiencing overall before even asking a about how education was going and how they were experiencing schooling and their engagement with you know the disruption that happened to their learn. We first started with questions about their experiences. Overall with kobe and not one area we realized that communities are really struggling with accessing childcare and that pence trickled down into how students engaging their education how parents are supporting their children so we heard stories from parents that are you know both identify the central workers where they are finding themselves a with no access to childcare because childcare providers are either not in business or have made a difficult decision not to take their children. Because they're putting themselves at a higher risk you know. We heard stories from one parent where One parents firefighter. The other parent worked in a hospital and the of provider made a choice not to bring them in because of that hybrid and other situations or just wasn't available in their communities and were finding themselves having to take their children to work in order to make sure that they were learning we heard stories about how Like parents were getting phone calls from their teachers. Saying you know your child isn't engaging today where are you or if she and you know it's harder to control that when you're not with your your child at the time and then we Started to ask them how they were feeling. Overall we learned very quickly that there are a lot of challenges that children and you know students are experiencing their social emotional and mental long. Then students are feeling very isolated and disconnected from their peers from other educators. You know especially your students that are engaging schooling we In many situation our students express that they haven't seen any other classmates since the start of the school year. Because when they tune into their google on me sir or their class meetings. it's Shadow walks that they see as opposed to you know the videos that we see in two meetings when people choose to turn their videos on And that that comes back to some of the district company in order to ensure equity where they don't require students attend everybody about teachers haven't met their students all year and and they have to imagine what their their students might look like given that reality. And then on the academic front we're seeing some inequities and the rigor of the core the coursework that students are engaging in The reality is that as much as we would like to hope Engaging in classes remotely is very different especially in a world where our educators were asked to visit With no choice because we're we're living through a pandemic pivots remote learning and to a different structure of learning law even in person because we have to ensure safety of the students as this is all happening and so occasionally experience. Our students have drastically changed. And it's been a major adjustment for them and educators alike in terms of recommendations on what to do worse. Did some of those standout is more important accurately. You know one of the main issues that we saw was the impact that resource inequity is having on our students and families across the state and as we think about the recommendations moving forward. We think it's extremely gordon. To ensure that we're on a path towards ensuring that our school district and our communities have the resources they need to support students we know that the pandemic has not impacted student equally because there was inequities in our system that had existed even pirates with this is only been exacerbating that and so as we think about the recovery. We need to make sure that we invest in. The resources needed that with orange resources. We target some of those support to ensure that students are supportive socially and emotional and that we are closing those gaps in access. What were some examples of the inequities. I imagine The disparity in access to technology. Yes absolutely that was one of the issues that we saw in some situations. We heard stories about some students having to Ask a family members to drive them to a local church a local restaurant that had my accent in order for them to be able to work on Remote learning we heard stories about you. Know the funding disparities. The reality is that you know. Even the remote learning studying felt differently by different students in different areas that were seeing depending on the infrastructure is that were in place before that and that all comes back to resource equity funding equity that we you know an organization. Highly highly value in in our work. And you know. We saw the benefits of the investment of You know the evidence base funding formula because some districts were able to pivot almost immediately provide every student with the laptop provide students with support that were needed and some districts. My numbers are still struggling to connect with students You to the ron band accidents in the inequity around that and then another one of the inequities that we heard The inequitable access to rigorous and engaging coursework we heard stories from students You know both from the end of students that are participating. In ap coursework i the coursework and then students that are participating and of course. We're in a way that is just a movie would consider like quote unquote regular classes and that experience is very different. students in the it side felt like they had an experience too much disruption. They had a course map that they have to follow because there was a test at the end of the year that they have to take you know in order to get that quick for college and in our classes and our students competed that were in regular classes You know we had an example student share that they were in spanish class Remotely they hadn't even spoken spanish. Yeah because they're not able to engage in that dialogue that they if they were in person. The report talked a little about what is getting lost in learning because of the covid situation. Is there a way or ways that schools can do their jobs once covid nineteen subsides and we get back to normal one of the most important things that will be required a part of the recovery and the rebuilding from this is that we need to ensure that their state guidance and support in thinking. About how school districts navigates the time that come back to that the reality is that we have over eight hundred districts in our state and if we work on eight hundred fifty solution then we are going to continue to inequity. I l we are going to continue to see you know. The impact of students follow us into the long term. In the way that didn't they're able to persist and continue towards college or post secondary You know option that they choose And if we don't you know provide some statewide guidances. Wake support in the form of resources and infrastructures ensure that the impacts are minimized. I think that that story for can look very different. You know that are student You know as i mentioned or not feeling the impact equally all across the state you know. We are seeing stories where some children are benefiting from participating in pods and some students are going to school in person and there are some that have been attending remote go from the very beginning and health health very different across the state. Some parents have access to support their students. The ability to do that and some don't and we cannot put that plane on her parents. But you know. I think about the recovery needs to think about how we have. The state have a role in ensuring that our students are supported and that our families are supported the pasta up recovery in building. That's jessica ramos a link to that report about teaching during the pandemic. And what should happen. Next is at our website. Statewide show dot com. Many parents have been getting a rare peek at how their kids behave or don't in class families of experience challenges with remote learning but a few have experienced some unexpected fun suzanne some of their stories. This is my first grade sons promote music class. He's putting on quite a performance lip synching instead of singing along just like moving your mouth while you do that. I don't like the yen so she thinks i'm singing by whatever this like. She sees that you're not seeing. Maybe all her feelings or in trouble. My son augie. And i have clashed in the semester. He doesn't like remote learning. And i have what teachers call poor classroom management. But i've had fun seeing him. Learn in real time and his creative ways of slacking off some parents say these small moments have brought them a bit of joy in a difficult year. Like sophia. kim. Who says sometimes her labor goes unrecognized by her to elementary age sons. You call me in because you meet stand next to you while you take your test nine year old. Brian is hot and cold when it comes to his mom helping with school one day. Kim made a comment in passing that. She'd like to have grandchildren someday. Brian responded children are too much work for me. Having been seeing how much work has been putting in some yes. I don't want that to become me. I wanna probably have some me time. Brian says this opinion isn't a reflection of his own behavior. Rather it's based on. How annoying his little brother is luke. Davis is wrangling. Her daughter harper and son harrison managing a horse voice suzy. I'm an harper. How old are you wing way. And the ad in fifteen. Dan davis daughter. Harper has a lot of hot takes and learned fast how to use the unmuted button in her preschool class. so harper. a meat yourself goes. I i remember michelle davis and this is boring and i went. Oh gosh you can't say that. What did you have to tell her. Linked to ordering gambling until two out of the mouth of babes. Davis says it's a little embarrassing but she can't help but laugh. She's enjoying how her kids learn like her son writing his name for the first time and her daughter starting to draw recognizable images like a house fourth grader. Kate altenburg is over remote learning blaze misuse. The chat and like people don't know how google classroom works. Mom bridget altenburg says cates been pretty independent but one day. She got a note from the teacher. How did she put it. She said you were not a great online on online customer. Which i thought was weird phrase. It seems kate tried to pull a switcheroo by having a dull in for her. I put an angle where you can only see the brown hair so it looked like my head so you really were trying to get away with something. I need a break bridget. In kate both got covid. Nineteen early on altenburg. Things family is fortunate to have recovered and that she and her wife still have jobs that allow them to be at home with kate. We'd never say. I'm grateful for this time because there's so many other people that really struggling It has been fun to have her around in two over the commonsensical and kind of see how the teachers are handling it. She's grateful for how families and schools have come together to try to make this year work. Shuzo yon that reports took off. And that's it for this.

Last forever. is the onion news network. One three four five six seven eight nine twelve. That's my new testing one two three. Just sing the guys watched him with sesame street. You're going to get a suit for that. Hey can you just let her be her. I remember watching sesame street and they were showing a thing about brought to you by the letter. Well yeah it was a bunch of folks in a restaurant and they were. They were going to see a band and they said and now they just gentlemen.

Be the second letter. read something like that. Childhood entertainment and hanging behind him was a giant. Be the letter b. like hanging from the ceiling. You know the beatles that be till's right yes This is free talk live. I believe that we are not only broadcasting on radio but that we have reestablished our internet streams albeit a scaled down version. Were down to one camera. Normally we have several cameras that we rotate through. So yeah throw up the p. signs gang signs middle fingers whatever you're gonna do We appear to be streaming for the moment. I have several people working on confirming whether or not we are actually streaming online. And in fact. I'm one of those people. And i'm attempting to confirm that now and we'll get confirmation in ten nine and i'm gonna keep throwing the peace sign seven because that's what stands for five four. I cannot confirm That is interesting and ten nine assumed that we were going out on the radio and assumed that we actually had access to internet. Things happen there and you know out of our control one of the good things so things happen right every. I think everyone is aware of what happened. And i was Messaging the captain a little bit north. Oh that was like signing my mess. I just have to take a moment. Head of self-gratification streams this appears to be a livestream on youtube. Yeah channel even more do so we should be on youtube Live twitch you. Facebook several other sites that i can't remember off the top of my head because well. I'm not in freeman. Do we have a live chat room available where people were to confirm that for us. They could like at least we probably do. I don't have access to the mastodon. Chance okay Right now you could probably jump in the d. live twitch chat rooms. Maybe the facebook page for free talk live. We are broadcasting. Live on the facebook page for free talk live. That's something that we hadn't been doing for. Maybe as much as years. And then recently mr freeman and his brilliant mind Made that happen again. Along with several other livestreams we were not live streaming on youtube as well for quite some time because they changed how we must connect and so he had worked all that out. So so i. I do think it bears mentioning just in case. There's someone who only gets this on sundays. Yes and this being the first sunday Since has been wait. Tuesday wednesday thursday francis. It has been five days since the terrorist raid on the fm slash. Free talk live radio studio as well as the bitcoin embassy the mighty new smart and a house and also since they kidnapped six people in total. Not all of them. Were at the studio or at the bitcoin embassy. Some of them were paid a visit by armed thugs who refer to themselves as the government and kidnapped. Nobody leave formerly known as rich. Paul host here. Freetalklive live is still a inside. He was not granted bail and there was no. I don't know if there was a hearing or not but it does about that. It was not granted bail or he refused the bail conditions and therefore do we have confirmation. We we have no confirmation yet. What i had heard is that he might have Simply refused to sign some of the paperwork which right would not be surprising. Given his general temperament but it also means it's more of a choice to be in there than the others and everyone else accepted their conditions and they are free conditionally well out of the cage but with conditions on how to live their life. That's what i'm saying. Yeah so you can live your life free from the cage with conditions or you can live in the cage unconditionally. But of course only until the trial and all that stuff goes on so The nobody the person named nobody is still in the cage. The nobody formerly known as rich. Paul that's correct. Ian freeman is not the freemen. He is ian captured man. He is still inside. Ian hostage in hostage gets being held hostage. There was a bail. Hearing for mr freeman on friday. The judge said that she would make her decision expeditiously. Whatever that means whatever that means and so. We're hoping it just means that she'll make her decision. You know tomorrow. Monday for example. But it's hard to tell to tell what what expeditiously means to government. you know. i wish she would have said. I'll make my decision by monday afternoon. And then you know we could. You know made her decision at that. Time was pretty strong on the defense. Well and okay. Let's say that. She had said i will make my decision by monday afternoon. or what. Yeah that's the afternoon comes and What are we gonna do sue them. We we know it is difficult to hold government accountable again. Difficult in the way that it is difficult to reach the moon by flapping my arms. It is difficult very difficult. Yes so one of the points. I was trying to make win capital. Like looking trying to confirm the deal thing is i was signing All my communication to hail hydra because that is true. Because as if you're only if this is the first time listening it's me and peerless mountaineer sitting in the studio. This is the first time you've probably heard our voice since the incident However we're here anyway right. We weren't scared off by the raid. We weren't put off by what they were doing. Free talk live In general in freeman as a person and the whole crew surrounding it like have built up this show in a way that if one person or one entity or multiple people go down there are replacements in the wings willing and ready to step up and step in well right and so you guys ever see one of these science fiction shows where the world goes to crap and then like some schoolteacher being like the thirty fifth person in line to like well. You're the now. I feel like that person should because and you have definitely stepped up and gone way above the call of duty. I salute you for the efforts that you're like for that road. You have grown a brand new super techie personality. I'm not looking for any of that. I'm just saying that is what what i feel like. I'm like okay. Well here i go. And i you know but if not for you what would have become of the well at the same time. I'll be sob. If i'm gonna let this show die. If there's a damn thing i can do about. That's what i'm saying. And i mean to quite literally. Give the devil his due. I mean they made a very very tactical strike. I mean you took out the two people who are the least to defend themselves in any way shape performed whatsoever and have significantly Reduced our technical capability in the process. Real quick just for the listeners. Who are still may be confused about what happened. Several as many as i think six law enforcement agencies did a no knock raid on the free talk live studios that is to say. They used a battering ram on the doors. All of the doors doorframes were broken. The windows were broken out in multiple places Currently there's like plywood and that kind of thing you know over some of the openings in the home some folks are in the building. Some folks have volunteered their time and effort and materials to help secure the place of their own volition and we thank everybody who has st
