"And that's we're at today but again it's still a lot of rumors going on about what happened with the two wives that died. Richard ben kramer is a journalist. That i got a lot of the information for this episode about he. His rolling stone article really highly insinuates. That lewis had something to do with the death of his wives and that he absolutely had something to do with the destruction of the lives of many of his ex wives that were still alive. It's very sad. And he just seems like one of those guys that he's just so not under under the rate he's on the radar but we miss a lot of this activity because it's been so long and because it just feels like his whole musical persona is an static. I don't know the movie. Great balls of fire. I think really brought him back to public consciousness from what i remember watching movies and played dennis. Quaid we're talking about dennis quaid also dates. Yeah much younger. Which i thought was interesting kind of take. But y- i think the thing of jerry lee lewis. I mean his the late nineteen fifties is his apex but yet is he's just a the fact that he survived so much for so long where other people haven't in the eighty s. He got most of his stomach removed. And he's like at now at eighty five. He's you can see my tiktok. It's an interesting thing that people have given him a pass because they'll always have some kind of celebration with him and he's really playing. This got us some good songs and he is definitely a pioneer exit. He's switched to country standards because the british invasion came music changed. Where does he fit in. Elvis's you know what i mean. Elvis was not in vogue in the yet to come back in sixty eight and and everything like that. So musically people like. I don't wanna hear rocker. Bob change we want to hear something more aggressive and then obviously music has changed a lot but people have given him a huge pass and he never mind. Never mind just dating. You're very young cousin there. That is definitely the one thing to remember. But the fact is is that he is just not a good person to a lot of people and yet we're talking about the seven wives but there's probably seven thousand other people he treated like garbage and everyone. Some people treat people. Everyone has to be nice all the time. Twenty four seven but he seems to be like a routine bad boy that people like they said people java cool whatever all part of music history all of a sudden you get total pass because all like when the stuff came to consciousness as being really bad. This is after because obviously at the time people like. She's thirteen years old. Holy shit but at the time we're really felt like humility bad and this person is an addict in their abusive. He was already old. He was like not perceived of as the same amount of threatening as he might be in his early years and in a style. Jack you're saying comes in and out of conscious. But i think that movie great balls of fire was one of those things that really brought him and.

"Myra later said she'd never shaken off. The lewis his child bride stigma though lewis and some of his friends talking about it after the fact stand by the fact that he didn't think that he did anything wrong in the south. It wasn't super uncommon to marry a cousin but nobody could really ignore the fact. Even if you were cool with that that she was thirteen years old. It took louis. Almost a decade to rebuild. His career rebrand himself a country star. The marriage ended in nineteen seventy thirteen years later which is a lot of years to be married to him. Here's meyer again. It was something that marc jerry for life. We kept thinking every year every six months that it was going to go away. They're gonna stop talking about it and it just didn't happen but it brought me jerry very close. We had ten incredible wonderful years together. After that we were like a little camp that had been attacked by an enemy and we held strong to each other and said regardless of what they do. We're going to keep fighting. Jerry's famine money went down to almost nothing. It was very turbulent for ten years but it was the happiest years of our marriage. So that is troubling. Just the idea of all of this media. Scrutiny bringing this codependent captive relationship between this man and his girl together even further. I want to emphasize that this was the only experience marriage might renew so if she talks. Glowingly in interviews. What she does she actually. After the fact she says a lot of really positive things about their marriage but a detail that is also very haunting a not unlike. The picture is after getting married. She joined back up with louis. Start buried life with him. She didn't know what to put all of her possessions and so she packed them into the only thing that could contain her clothes and things which was a giant closeable dollhouse so again picture. This thirteen-year-old girl carrying around his dollhouse to go meet up with her new husband who is in young himself but still like legally a man to be his wife so in nineteen. Seventy mayer brown filed for divorce on the grounds of adultery and abuse. Apparently they only spent three nights at home together through their whole marriage again despite what she may have said. Because of his hectic touring lifestyle lewis was rumored to struggle with addiction and was cheating left and right brown charged that she had been quote subject to every type of physical and mental abuse imaginable. Back he threatened to her on multiple occasions. And there's a lot of pieces of that so you look at her testimony after the fact being kind to him. And then you look at other one time.

"He has been described as rock and roll. I great wild man and one of the most influential pianists of the twentieth century which is huge and not untrue. But again this is another reason on a to talk about him in that. His personal life really cuts down a lot of his musical achievements. And we can talk about the artist. Serafini artist all day. And it's where you choose to draw the line with that with him so he was a southern pentecostal kid. Who became the masthead of the quote. Devil's music rock and roll. He also was married seven times. Each marriage ended. Not let's say. Jerry lewis first wife was dorothy barton. The daughter of a preacher. He was just sixteen and she was seventeen. Interestingly enough he would say that. Dorothy was fourteen when she was actually seventeen. Manipulating would later get him into some trouble. Their marriage lasted from february. Nineteen fifty two to act tober. Nineteen fifty three twenty months. We don't really know what specifically happened to them but he we can presume that he fell in love with someone else because he literally got married again right after. Dorothy barton to jane mitchum twenty three days before his divorce from dorothy barton was final. He married this woman. People doubt its validity because of this but whatever they married in october and fifty seven after four years. Lewis filed for divorce the couple of two children jerry lewis junior and ronnie guy lewis jerry lewis junior a musician a drummer. Actually who is in.

Everybody worn louis not to get married and two. If you're going to get married. Do not take his wife onto her with him. It wasn't public yet.

They realized that he had married his thirteen year. Old cousin once removed. Myra gale brown. Lots of problems. Obviously a twenty two year old louis was then asked how old his new wife was immediately. After she had revealed her name and her relationship to him he lied and said she was fifteen. Of course the truth came to light very soon after. They did some digging. And the press hounded. Jerry and myra mercilessly fans were outraged. The tour was cancelled after the first three shows didn't sell well and those who tended harassed lewis booed him from their seats. They made his tour a hellscape and he deserved it in a later interview. My right now. My williams reflects on that moment in her life. She says the only problem was that no one told me anything. So when a reporter asked me who are you. I was the one who left the big cat of the bag. It was a perfect storm. It couldn't have happened at a worse time at a worse place. Everything just came together and a major explosion happened. There's one photo that will put up i.

"A killer romance. I'm jason horton. I'm rebecca leave and this is goes town. It was may nineteen fifty-eight at heathrow airport. Jerry lewis was arriving to london for a major tour. A british journalist asked the small girl next to lewis one question. Who are you. She answered simply. And honestly saying i'm myra jerry's wife he was not yet divorced and mayer brown. Was his thirteen year old cousin. Today we're gonna talk about these seven wives of jerry lewis and there are parts that are obviously really bad. There's bad parts but there's also a testament to this person who's still alive and the time and place of these marriages and these women's stories which i hope is not a ton out there for some of them but you really get a sense of of again like i said at the time and place of things what music was like the culture of of being married to someone like him this highly successful abusive erotic musician. So i just wanna say that before. We even get started. Jerry lewis was a pioneer of rock and roll and rockabilly music. He was known by his concerning nickname at the killer which he used weaponized after a while he was very radic and with threaten many people not just the woman who was married to born in nineteen thirty five and concordia parish louisiana. Lewis began playing piano with his two cousins. Mickey gilley went on to be a popular country music singer. And jimmy swaggart no us pretty economic televangelist of the seventies recognizing his talent lewis. Parents mortgage their farm to buy him his first piano. Lewis started recording in fifties and memphis with his nineteen fifty seven. Hit whole lot of shaking going on making him. Essentially a star breakout star. He followed that song. Great balls of fire also incredibly famous breathless in highschool confidential. I grew up listening to him on the oldies channel. In my town's radio you'd hear it all the time soundtracks to things he again as someone who grew up in essentially the ninety s it was still such a big part of my musical childhood after marrying his second wife his thirteen year old cousin which we will get to to a little bit more in debt after marrying his second wife like we talked about his thirteen year old cousin. He didn't do much. In the nineteen sixties his performances were getting more erratic wildly energetic insane. Dude lots of things that will also get into you. Went full country at the end of the nineteen sixties and was known for covering classics and kind of a country style by twenty ten. He had a dozen gold records in both rock and country. He had forgotten me awards including a grammy lifetime achievement award and two grammy hall of fame awards in nineteen eighty six. He was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame..

"Today were throwing it back old school to what. Maybe the primordial rock rivalry. We're taking it back to the dawn of sun records in the feud between elvis presley and jerry lewis the king versus the killer. I can't wait. Elvis presley known as the king of rock and roll but jerry lee lewis is the king of role wild men. I feel if jerry lee started his career today he would be cancelled in about five minutes. His story is filled with scandals involving drugs. Booze guns underage cousins to dead wives including one. He might have murdered one bass player that he accidentally shot in the chest and many other unmentionable compared to jerry lee even with his own foibles. Elvis looks like an angel which might be why. Jerry lee literally tried to kill elvis at one point which will get into in this episode. There's so much crazy rock and roll lord to parse here. I can't wait to get into it without further ado. Let's get into this. It all begins with elvis so many rock and roll tales. Do you know the story. Little boy from tupelo mississippi boina a room shotgun shack. It's like a chuck berry lear. He was a shy kid. He gave his first musical performance at a singing contest. And it's elementary school at age. Ten and he was dressed as a cowboy stood on stool of reach. The mike and the best part is the only came in fifth place. Which i mean i wanna talk to those other. Four people who like for the rest of their lives were like. Yeah you know. I beat elvis singing contest right. Like how wild would that be when times a daily slipped back into the conversation. We're those people today. What are they doing. Please get in touch. Please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you soon after this. He got a guitar for christmas. Which bummed out because he wanted a bike or a gun typical mississippi kid he learned it and started bringing it to school to sing hillbilly music during lunchtime. And he was seen as kind of a loner and teased as being a mama's boy and even called trashy for playing this kind of wild hillbilly music and <hes>. One of his classmates was the younger brother of a musician name mississippi slim who had a radio show on local blow station and he would take elvis down to the station and slim would give him guitar pointers. And that became one of his early musical influences. The presley's also lived in a predominantly black neighborhood where he absorbed those musical influences well. So you've got this. Hillbilly music played by memphis swim or ernest tubb hank snow mixed with the blues music that he heard in his neighborhood he loved. Rosetta are for example and the gospel but he knew from pentecostal churches all blended into the very unique musical gumbo. That became elvis's sound. I was to me in many ways was was like a modern man before his time you know he loved music and listen to anything. It didn't matter where it came from. If you liked it he liked. It was the r&b hillbilly music of course but like you said he was also the gospel music. Can he love blues. And into crooners. Like dean martin. Perry komo's well and even like the opera singer mario lanza. He was a big fan of him as well. And i feel like elvis generally had like really good taste and a away. I wonder if his greatest talent was as a curator. You know like he had a gift for being able to recognize what was good and synthesize it into like one thing that he did in a very unique way. If you look at elvis. His early life. I feel like it takes a really crucial turn when he turns thirteen. That's when his family moves to memphis which is of course one of the great american music cities of all time and this is around the time that like alba's hanging out in local juke joints in watching live music. And he actually got to know. Bb king a little bit at this time like this will. This was bb. King was also really young and before he was famous. Elvis also started playing music around like the public housing complex where he lived so you starting to dabble in performance. But he was basically like a loner. At this time he had long sideburns. He had like long hair for the time. He slipped it back kind of like a truck driver at the time and he was like a real sort of econo- class at his school he didn't sink publicly until nineteen fifty-three that's when he entered a town show at his high school. And you later say that. Like i wasn't popular in school but then i entered in this talent show and when i came on stage i heard people of rumbling and whispering and so forth because nobody even knew i could sing. It was amazing how popular i became in school after that. I can just picture this. It's like the scene in the bio pic about elvis. He starts to become the king. It all begins at this moment. But the scene. I would've always assumed that would have been a bio pic is actually a myth. Everyone knows this. This story of elvis. Going to sam phillips sun records in august nineteen fifty-three to you know the myth is that he went to cut two songs as a birthday present for his mom. That was sort of the story that was put around. Which is you know. Very much in the elvis image. Being this like sweet mama's boy in fact he showed up just because he was ambitious guy. <hes> the author peter guralnick. Who wrote the definitive elvis memoir last train to memphis <hes>. And the other part to called careless love <hes>. He talks about there was a much cheaper recording machine down the road like a general store so elvis just wanted to make a song you know record for his mother for a birthday he could have done it much cheaper and easier down the street so he definitely had his sights on being discovered when he showed up to to sun records and the <hes>. The receptionist tried to get a gauge. On what kind of musician was and asked him who he sounded like. I love his reply. Said i don't sound like nobody. Which is a hell of an intro. And you know very true. Sam phillips was in that day. The guy ran the company receptions like what she heard and left a note for phillips saying to hold onto this guy so for a few months phillips. Wasn't really sure what to do. With elvis. there are few failed auditions that he went on with other groups <hes>. Working as a trucker for time and some musicians the audition for basically told them to stick to his job. They really weren't into his sound at all. Sam offered him a few songs to sing. It didn't really click with his vocal style. Until elvis and the sort ad hoc band that phillips put together just started jamming and screwing around and between takes and they started messing around on a song. That's all right. Mama and sam phillips new good thing when he heard it and that became elvis. I hit and the ad hoc ban that that sam put together with with bill. Black and scotty moore which became the you know the iconic elvis backing band so elvis is on his way right now to fame and fortune and we all know the story after that. Jerry lee lewis. He's not yet famous at this point but he's basically moving like on a parallel track. Alvis now jerry lee lewis. He was born in fair day. Louisiana in nineteen thirty. Five the same year as elvis. Elvis was born in january of that year. Jerry lee was born in september so like nine months or so separates them at that time so very close in age like elvis early was born into poverty. He was raised in the christian faith and he was drawn to music at an early age. Actually his parents mortgage their house to buy jerry. Lee a piano and like elvis. Jerry lee grew up singing gospel music and while they had a similar christian background. I feel like their take on christianity. Was much different. Like if you listen to like the gospel records at elvis made. They're very much like sort of talking about the afterlife. In this very sort of like peaceful and tranquil kind of ways looking at like the holy spirit as being a way to sort of save you to deliver you from darkness whereas like jerry lee definitely of the fire and brimstone variety of christianity. Like where he was very focused on sin and hell in the devil and where you desire is intense and like the punishment for desire is intense and you can see how these contrasting views spirituality. We're gonna define these guys as they move forward you'll lee would actually like talk later in life about how you wanted to be a preacher at one point and his cousin of course is jimmy swaggart which i don't know people so remember jimmy swaggart like in the nineteen eighties. He was a very famous televangelist and he actually ended up getting busted in the red light district in new orleans for messing around with ten dollar prostitutes. Yeah jimmy swaggart and jerry lee. I think they both dealt with the devil. Shall we say yeah. That's a good way to put it so anyway. Jerry lee you know. He's getting his first exposure. Perform playing the piano in church. But by the time you know he's around fifteen or so. You started to get into trouble. Because he's playing like rock and roll versions essentially of hymns and this is also around the time that he earned his nickname the killer which is like one of the coolest nicknames i think in rock and roll like king of rock and roll that's a pretty cool nickname but like the killer to me is like untouchable and it's somewhat ironic given his eventual life. Because again like he was at one point accused of killing one of his wives but he insists that like he was called the killer because he was murdering people but because he was such a good musician. Like there's a quote in league. just fantastic. Natasha's jerry lewis biography hellfire or actually says that he hates that nickname but he said he's been stuck with it ever since he was a kid and he said i don't think they mean it killer. Lack kill people. I think they mean it musically speaking

We're opening up for the kinks. And this is like a long time ago was my first time in a big arena. And, you know, I don't get nervous at all now, but back then I was Really scared and opening up for the kinks, and they were my heroes. I mean, it was the first It was the beginning of like, Oh, my God. Those are the guys that was missing their music and probably playing in music and bands. And now I'm in a band opening up for them, So that would be the first like Wo kam bam, you know? And the other one would be the next one following. That would be when Jack and Diane went to number 10. Yeah, and back then, you know, there was only album, more oriented stations and top 100 hits station. So it wasn't like there was all these different stations. So if you were number one On a Nalbandian number one on the album oriented stations, and you were number one on the hit. You couldn't get that song was on every radio station. You all over MTV and it was huge. It was seriously number one. No name t mention you don't have to do that. But have you ever played for an artist that you just didn't like? Well, let's just put this way. Yeah, There've been some situations were it gets ugly on stage and it's ah. You know, it's not fun. And it's hard. You know, when you're a drummer, you're you're playing with all this physical might and you get very emotional. You're dreamin is going up and and you know, And if you get like a nasty look or some, and that that singer that's when mostly referring to is, they're having a hard time. And event on me. It's not. It's weird like they're the I'm there to help them and they're screaming at me because they're having a hard time And that has nothing Do with me. You need to talk Tommy and letting you play out One of our life. State shows when they start again because I sing, Kitty, we'd have some fun land. Let's do it. I'm blind like an old Elvis and Sinatra guy. Fantastic, which threw it. Did you ever meet Elvis Presley? Or was he gone? By that time? He was gone? I met. I just want Teo Memphis. To celebrate in Mississippi, Jerry Lee Lewis and you know it was the famous The famous picture. Was that the Million dollar quartet with Elvis, Jerry Lee Johnny Cash and called Perkins and I've I've worked in All of them with One guy I never met or played with was Elvis. How about the Sinatra ever meet him? I got to see his last show in Palm Springs, and he didn't know it was his Last show. It was well. I was recording Willie Nelson's record and well, he says, You know, you guys like I'm not going to make it tomorrow because I've got to do this thing. I'm opening up for Sinatra it for ST Jude's, You know, Charity, and don was what? Well, we're going with you way we've piled in the cars like a bunch of kids and we went there and wow watching Sinatra. His whole shtick was un unbelievable. These drummers like the drummers that playing the groups on the Tonight show and things like that. They make a lot of money doing that. I think if you doing a regular show like the Letterman show, or you doing Ah, definite tonight show And they? Yeah, they make enough money to do pretty good. Great. Yeah, they do. They make enough money to build, you know, pay their bills. Be a musician. Pick up, you know sessions when they can, you know, the only thing is that it keeps you in town. If you're going to be the drummer on the Letterman show, and I subbed for Anton Fig, I think I did 75 shows. On Letterman show and I'd say most of them. No, I should say about two thirds of them is when I was a sub. And that was exciting. I love that. Jenny. Have you ever gotten one of those calls where the drummer got sick the night of the show, And you have to be plugged in pretty close to it. Yeah. How do you How do you play hard? Well, how do you know the music and swell? I write everything out. I'm not. I'm afraid yourself for every song every note. Wow. So I literally not going to do that Kennedy Center honors or like Like last year, I was doing Fogarty in Vegas and I had to fly all the way to Moscow. Get off the plane goes right into the Kremlin to rehearse for four hours. The next day we rehearsed for Eight hours and then film and records show for four hours 34 songs they didn't rehearsing for 10 days. I couldn't make it until I did. I had every single thing written now tempos. And then, when the rehearsal I asked, Who's counting off of I'm counting off. I ask who's there? You know, I get everything written down everything. And when I do shows that Kennedy sent arms to get the script And I talked to the stage manager, the producer and a musical director. And I know exactly when the count off west to tune guitars. Ah was something has to be the teleprompter right behind the whole thing. You know, with the help of the MD and I get all that so I'm like I've learned it took me years and years and years and years to get that skilled, but it pays off a situation like that. And he's got a book out called Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll. The hardest hitting Man in Show business, and his website is his name Kenny Aronoff dot com which we've got linked up for you at coast to coast am dot com. Kenny What's the strangest story you've encountered that you can say on the radio?.
Billy Joe Shaver, Seminal Outlaw-Country Songwriter, Dead at 81
"Well, Here's an interesting story. One interesting fellow that many this may not know about. You know his music Billy Joe Shaver. Seminal outlaw country songwriter passed away at the age of 81. He had no unspecified illness was in Waco, Texas. He's a Texas native. In fact, he burst onto the scene in 1973, a debut album entitled Old Five and Dime. Er's Like Me. I was known for contributing the Outlaw country movement. Who's friends with Willie once our shaver, as you said he called him the greatest living songwriter. His songs recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash. Elvis, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Lee Lewis. His rep said his hardscrabble songs reflected his tough life dropped out of high school hitchhiked, drove trucks across the country, married and divorced. The same woman three times for him can't be too sure, and the 2007 shot a man in the face outside a bar in Texas. It was acquitted of the charges, claiming self defense had a heart attack on stage Andrada memoir about it 2005 and Title honky tonk hero. When he was young. He lost the top three fingers in a sawmill accident. His son, Eddie, died of a heroin overdose in 2000. He was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Year was 2006. For that was also a member of the National Songwriters Hall of Fame that that honor in 2002 Americana Music Association gave him a lifetime achievement award for song writing most recently last year, the Academy of Country Music gave him the Poets Award. So they both may wise Williams shaver together hard to be an outlaw crack shovel. It'll go right. And it's hard to be the only thing. This was part of it. I think this was in one of those TV shows that Kenny Rogers did those that called a gambler. And I think this song is willing. Elsa was in a couple of those with willing with Kristofferson was in One or two of them in that bunch. That song was in that
"jerry lee" Discussed on WAAM Talk 1600
"Killer. Jerry Lee Lewis. Almost unique. Piano Stiles, Mr Mankind right there, you know, l says they're gonna Jimmy Swaggart on Mickey Gilley, too, but I think Jerry Jerry's really got it down cold, but again if you hear Jimmy Swaggart plan is pretty much the same thing. They will learn of the same piano that so you are my sunshine on alternative bump music Friday so glad you could join me. Ah! I was going to mention this to the other day. Here. The progressive left Tell they're really They're really screaming out now that we should be paying more taxes, right? And, ah! Don lemon Internet was whining about if we're not paying more taxes were selfish to think about who who, in their right mind comes up with that kind of monkey logic. If you're if you're not going to, if you're not willing to pay more taxes, you're selfish. You should be giving your stuff to other people. If you don't you're on your service. You know, that reminds me of this guy, but there's a bunch of you see him all over the place. Now they're on the street corners and there's they have cardboard signs in them so that they're having tough times I'll work for food. They all have drug habits, The ones that really get me or alcohol habit. So on the ones that really get me and I I mentioned the other day. Ah! They'll have like a cell phone. They'll be taken cell phone calls while you're handing out money and Ah and Teo really, really, really put the cherry on top, but they'll be smoking cigarettes. What are cigarettes? Not 12 bucks a pack? But if you buy a pack of cigarettes going somewhere on 12 14 bucks a pack, So you're giving a guy money on the side of the road that says he's having a hard time You can't find a job or or he's a veteran, and he's got something going on and He needs your help, and he's smoking cigarettes. How stupid can you pay? Don't feed the Bears, man. Yeah, but don Lemon says you're selfish, not going to get too deep into that one today. Ah, I'm going to be so glad when this political season as they call it is over. I'm going to miss the revenue we're getting on Wham. A lot of people spend a lot of money on campaign hands. That's good. That's good. That's good, but it all ends next week. But are we can't just the Monday and ends on the Monday before election for political ads, But I am. I'm sick of it. It's just driving me crazy. I mean, I'm not going to name anybody's ad, but some some of are just so. Gimmicky and they do that. What I used to call AM radio ads well is on AM radio station, but They they they try and make things cute and clever. They try and write clever content. On a lot of times, you hear these type of ads used to do a round up Not on the station. But here on the station to do around restaurant fair and I want I just want to say it's knock it off. Just state the case so and he went all in soon. We'll go back to normal. Well, you know what? We won't go back to normal. No. Now we're all we'll have the China murder virus. I just heard that they are trying to get rid of the Japanese what they called death, Hornets or murder of murder. Hornets. Did you hear the news? They found a nest of murder hornets and they well, they found very clever. They used dental floss to tie a transmitter on the hornet. And then they followed us to where the nest is not in a white mountain. This is good. You know, these things are as big as your fist right? Pretty close to it. And I guess there are there are the sting people death. They eat other like honey, bees and things. They're not cool. You know why They came here because for nerds have come to our country and when we should have a few foreigners in, but we want to make sure we keep control on a big time. So that was kind of cool. Find Amur Murder Hornet. Tie a transmitter on it with dental floss. Turn it loose and then go find in this and wipe him out. But yeah, the new whether there's going to be a new norm after the election. A lot of people are saying I can't wait to get back to normal. Normal. What diaper on your face, huh? You're going to a restaurant? You gotta set the table with few people, and you could see some of your pals. You want to sit with their over there at the other table in that circle? You can't sit at your table to many people. You know, everybody's talking about? Well, not everybody. I take that back. A few people are talking about that. After the election, Trump even references it after. Ah On November 3rd. That's when all these Democrat hacks open their states back up. You think so? I don't think so. I think that they're really enjoying the control control. They just abject hammer down. You do what we tell you to do, or else You can't do this. You can't do that. The more the most egregious, sickening one. I was in New York City. A guy in Brooklyn was getting a ticket from the health department because the front door of the restaurant was open. Nobody was in it. Really? That's a violation of leave the front door open because of murder virus. Right? So this guy just called blood is writing this guy ticket and the guys almost in tears was on Tucker Carlson. I think two nights back or three months back that poor guy in the New York City when you get a ticket, you're probably talking maybe 500 bucks if you're lucky..

The Battle of the Hotels: Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and IHG
"Let's get into it. The Hotel Battle Hyatt Hilton Marriott. And here's our moderator. Julian Keel teepee emeritus director of credit cards and points and miles. Take it away Julian. Thank you Brian. I'm Jillian Keel. The director of credit cards and points and miles at the points guy. I am excited today. I have four hotel experts with me and we are going to be doing the battle of hotels. Let's start with Zach griff our travel endless. Hello Zack Hey Julian how's it going. Tell me what Cheney covering today I'll be covering my personal favorite. Hi Hi. It's a very big points in miles favorite also with us. Jt Enter our senior points and miles writer. Hello JD Jolyon. which brand do you talking about? I'll be defending is she. which is the hotel? Branwar spent the most nights this year and in the last two and a half years since going pneumatic a serious high HD HD fan. Yes all right sounds good. We've got cursor Ross and our points in miles reporter. which brand do you talking about today covering Hilton? which is my personal favorite brand? Lorenzo Hilton fans out there and then finally summer hall our director of travel here at Tgi Hud summer. How Juliet Hot Yes so I am going to be defending Mary bond boy. It is actually the program that I have had top tier status with the longest. Now hot minute since I had hiatt so I I have become a Marriott girl sort of yeah and a lot of Marriott in the news in the last year so let's start right there. What would you say for each? We'll start with you summer. What is the one thing? The one worst thing about Marriott's in one sentence from the best thing about Marriott is Saint Regis their high end properties. He's really are amazing. aspirational and something that Makes points worth it for me. So on the flip side I have had a lot of problems with the integration. They are now fully integrated program with Starwood Arwood but there was some serious serious rocky roads and lost points to get there So that was. That's been the worst part for me the last couple of years. Yeah there's been a lot of complaints about it's not just me. Yeah we'll get to that. Jt How about you. For I. H G best thing in worst thing about it. Yeah the reason why she is. The promotions are really great. The rewards program especially with credit cards. You get great night's for cheap. The worst they would definitely be a lack of hotel benefits like guaranteed late. Checkout even has a top tier. I don't get that or breakfast at all hotel brands and you're a top tier elite at a lot of hotel brands. And we'll get just a little bit Carita. As far as Hilton best thing and worse thing I would say Hilton is probably my favorite because it has the most accessible elite status so you get the most bang for your buck with your top tier status. I'd say probably the worst thing is how they tend to devalue their own points Frequently and without notice. Yeah if you're into the the point smiles but some people may just like Hiltons in general. That's true yeah. And Zach Hyatt like I said before points in miles favorite best and worst thing. Thanks for letting me take this one home because the clear clear win for high at here Hi. It's top tier. Elite status is easily the most rewarding of all of them They're fantastic about offering consistent benefits across all the different hotels whether it's confirmed sweet upgrades guaranteed late. checkouts breakfast everywhere under the sort of like exclusions that you get with some of the other chains and earning and burning points with height is super easy transferable currencies from trace and Yeah the only real issue is you can't find height everywhere Hi It's a portfolio is a little bit more limited than the other larger legacy chains but Hyatt. If it's in a place you're traveling going to. It's often the best hotel to choose but some people would argue that the key point of a hotel what you need the most is for them to be one there where you need it and that is somewhere somewhere highest serious For sure and hides doing its due diligence there. And they've had some recent acquisitions some other hotel chains so hopefully they will continue on that making a lot of party partnerships small luxury hotels taking over to Tallahassee so they have integrated more properties into their portfolio. But yes agreed. Are y'all crazy so I have heard High at yeah. They're Nice but you probably won't have one where you are and I've heard ice she. You don't really get anything being elite and I've heard Hilton. Yeah your points may be worth nothing tomorrow and yet here. y'All sit defending. These is the best loyalty programs. It's really quite entertaining. Maria does have the most hotel Marriott has close to seven thousand properties around the world. They do have legit elite status benefits. I love my free breakfasts. This is the selection. I make as a platinum when I check in and yeah they do have some properties have gone up in points but it typically isn't a surprise that just happens overnight so I think you'll lost already. We can wrap it up now. I think Mary also has its own HASHTAG bond void. It does so what is it. People who may not know what is point is is is the term that people use when they get unexpectedly screwed over by Marriott may or may not have also been yes I also was bond void So so that's no no. They might be now. How far do you have to fall when you're already starting with not much like with Marriott? You go in with high expectations tation so get knocked down a little bit. You still come out ahead. I've been bond void and yet I have also been saint. Regis it even unfair though at this point to say with that you are going in with high expectations when it comes to customer service I really I have had real problems where I had hours and hours on the phone. I've written stories about these on the points guy real frustration legit but I will say most of those are now in the rear view mirror. I'M NOT GONNA say it's not still happening to someone but a lot of the problems. uh-huh were centered around reservations made before the two programs merged and we're pretty much past the date or our past the date now. That's even possible so I'm not saying you can't that still have problems of Marriott but I can say that I'm not really having those anymore and I had some big ones. If I was still going through that day after day with Marriott I would have said Cya Nahra eh but I'm not and so instead I'm just living it up. You know at the Western snowmass and skiing out for thirty five thousand points tonight. What about that? Yeah yeah well the only issue though is right you have seven thousand hotels and you talk about you. Know you haven't been bond void nearly as frequently as maybe you are back in the day when the merger what's happening but how hotels how consistent are hotels in delivering your early benefits by upgrade. That might be a problem but in fairness I I wasn't getting the day of complimentary sweet grades frequently with high at either right but I also have four certificates that can use to confirm upgrades and each up to seven eight. Yeah exactly and we're talking about standard suites at top Tier Properties Park. Hyatt's we can go onto battle. Who has the most luxurious hotels? But I'm going to be staying in a suite and most likely as a platinum. You probably are. Well you're right however I travel with two kids so there's four of us in a room. A suite actually isn't useful anymore. It was there was a period of time where sweets were the ultimate and that is when I was a high at globalist or diamond at the time but now sweetshop one bed and then some light crummy sofa pullout so if you need a sweet you know maybe hired is a good thing to focus on for for that period of time in your life. But I'm at a time. Any beds in a room and so sweet upgrade for me is is useless most of the time. I'd rather have an awesome hotel exactly where I want it to beat beat and a few hundred more square feet most of the time speaking of upgrades one of the things about Hilton diamond status. That a lot of people complain about is that so you don't get confirmed upgrades. It's at the discretion of each individual property. Correct that's correct. I will say even though I don't have confirmed sweet upgrades. I have played in large large number of nights and home properties across the world and I've gotten upgraded on sweets on awards days on page days. Basically it's just the US. I think where you're shafted in terms of the sweet upgrades but everywhere else and the rest of the world you're getting in but you think that Hilton is at a slight disadvantage. Because of that because of these other chains that maybe do confirm Swede upgrades think it just depends on what your priorities are in the same in the same way that summer says I'd rather have a reliable quality hotel all across the world. And maybe I'll have a suite upgrade. Maybe I won't but I at least know that I'm going to have key benefits. It's available to me at a high quality level and on the flip side as far as earning top tier status. It's probably easiest with help. I'm just going to go ahead and just throughout throughout that Hilton aspire card because everyone else is just you guys have no game You know interest in terms of light barrier to entry to top Tier Diamond Status Status or top Jerry Lee Status Hilton. Has Everybody beat all you need to do his own one credit card right so with Hilton. You don't have to choose to focus all your stays on Hilton. You can just have a card and keep it in your pocket when you need. Ah The aspires a tremendous card But even if you just have the platinum or one of the less expensive Hilton Cards. That's all we had. We Have Hilton Gold status went to Bora Bora got free breakfast. All of us every single day which was like almost two hundred dollars in value and just with gold with gold status matched. Although I could've just done it for my platinum platinum card as well so I think Chris is right.

According to the national hole in one registry. Somewhere north of one hundred twenty eight thousand holes in one are registered every year. Which sounds like a lot except gulford play somewhere around four hundred and fifty million rounds of golf every year. That means a hole in one is officially registered about once every three thousand five hundred rounds around generally being considered eighteen holes, though, the United States Golf Association sometimes accepts a hole in one on a shortened round.

Have you ever wondered exactly what happens to the human body when it's suspended in space for extended period of time based on Hollywood, productions alone men and women who navigate the galaxy always seemed to be just fine when they land back on earth. But our astronauts so lucky in reality NASA has made it its mission to find out in a landmark DNA study published an April twenty nineteen issue of the journal science researchers from John Hopkins Stanford and other institutions revealed after a year in space astronaut, Scott Kelly, experienced, no, major long-term differences to his EPA genome compared with that of his twin brother current, Arizona. Senate candidate Mark Kelly hoop stayed firmly planted here on earth, your EPA genome is all of the chemical compounds that attached to your DNA and changed the way it functions. So no major differences, hypothetically, a good thing. Here's the deal with putting your body in space. It exposes you to harmful ultraviolet rays radiation, limited food and exercise lower gravity disrupted, sleep cycles, and an unknown number of other potential hazards. And while scientists have spent decades studying the effects of space travel on astronauts, most of these men and women have travelled on missions that max out at six months in order to travel somewhere like say Mars missions needs to be much longer. And scientists say it's critical to understand the effects that these super extended missions could have on the human body. Let's talk more about how your EPA genome works. Your DNA is your genome. It's the genetic code tells every cell in your body how to build different proteins which determines how those cells function your EPA genome is any chemical modifications to your DNA these modifications don't change your actual DNA sequence. But they can change how your cells us the instructions that your DNA gives them. So these tiny chemical alterations can have a major impact on a person's health by influencing the way their genes are expressed they can switch jeans from onto off and vice versa. A major advantage of this new research is the fact that it studies identical twins who naturally have identical genetic material. But while the study subjects offer a rare and unique glimpse into the potential for long term genetic changes in space. The researchers are quick to admit that they're tiny sample size means more testing is essential with only to study subjects. They can't be sure that any changes are due to space travel more research with other astronauts needs to be. Done. The methodology for the study involved collecting blood samples physiological data in cognitive measurements. From each Kelly twin at various points over twenty seven month period before during and after Scott's one year space mission if you're wondering how in the world or universe? Scott samples reached scientists from space they were transported via rockets. In the future. Scientists hope to process and store samples on board the international space station itself. But for the purposes of this study samples were rocketed back to earth and processed within forty eight hours. Then the research team examined to the brothers genomes looking for genetic changes, specifically focusing on two types of white blood cells and examining process called methylated, which occurs when chemical compounds called methyl groups are added onto DNA generally speaking, there were just about as many EPA genetic changes in Scott as there were in his twin. The biggest difference was observed nine months into Scott space mission. When just seventy nine percent of his DNA was methylated compared to eighty three percent of Mark's DNA the locations methylation were different in both men. Scott's Beth leash appeared near genes involved with a municipal response, which the researchers believe correlates with additional data that found that Scott had increased markers associated with inflammation, which is a potential red flag. But again bears further study to determine whether this difference was really caused by Scots location in space. Oh, though, one other weird thing that definitely did happen to Scott in space the shape of one of his eyeballs changed by the time. He got back to earth his retinal nerve and the foles in the layer that surrounds, the I thicker, researchers think this could have to do with prolonged exposure to low gravity another thing to watch out for in the future for sure.

Environmentalists fear Bolsonaro policies could speed Amazon deforestation
"Today we're looking at Brazil's rainforests sometimes referred to as the earth's lungs because of the carbon dioxide it absorbs and the oxygen it brings out Leslie hook environment. Correspondent spoke to Jerry Lee. Our Brazil bureau chief about fears that both in our presidency will undermine environmentalist efforts to preserve the forest and its wealth of by diversity. So Joe what's the situation at the moment. When it comes to deforestation in Brazil, the situation at the moment on deforestation is it hit a peak around two thousand eight of around twenty seven thousand square limited a year and its since come down sharply over the past ten years or so so it's much lower than it used to be. But still there's a severe persistent amount of deforestation. It's still going on mostly by illegal miners, loggers and unethical ranches, a minority we should say of agricultural produces a small minority, but still very persistent, and there's a lot of land conflict going on on the edge of Amazon. That's feeding this deforestation. Now, I understand that the Amazon rainforest contains about one hundred billion tons of carbon which is ten times global fossil fuel emissions. Can you just explain in a nutshell why the Amazon is so important to the environment? The. John. Ironically enough is the main source of emissions in Brazil because it contains much carbon. If you deforested you're unleashing that carbon into the atmosphere. So the zones a huge carbon Bank, and it serves as a major system for controlling the atmosphere, not just in South America. But also globally and one of the key points in Brazil, and one of the reasons why Brazil has tried to control deforestation from its own interest. Is that they believed that the Amazon is a source of much of the rain that feeds the tropical agricultural power of Brazil, dire Bolsonaro has said he wants to curb excessive policing by the country's environmental agency. And he's gained a lot of support from the farmers lobby. When exactly does he mean when he says that well, he talks about an industry find. So he talks about the main environmental agency Bama and the national parks agency, which is called ICM bio, he talks about these having a kind of industry funds, but I just. Oh out and find farmers for the sake of it to try to produce revenue for the federal government. And this is very popular among farmers farmers in Brazil held to account according to a forest code, which limits how much they're allowed to deforest and these limits can be quite severe up in the Amazon region. You're on the allowed to deforest twenty percent of your land in some areas in the south. It's much more relaxed in south of Brazil where widespread agriculture's being present for much longer. So he's appealing to the farmers on that account. There is a point to ease complaints. Brazil is a very bureaucratic country and environmental regulations are no different. But the danger of what he is talking about here is to try to pull Obama back from doing its job, and that could be very risky for not only the Amazon, but the other Brazilian biomass such as the Atlantic forest, which is in the southeast of Brazil, and the Suharto which is where a lot of the soy farming happens in Brazil. So in addition to reigning in Alabama's you've just described. What other measures has he talked about that would have big impacts on the environment. The regulations only embalmer these are the main ones the supervision of Obama and easy. And by these are, the major ones, but one of the other key things that he's talked about is combining the ministry of agriculture with the ministry of the environment and putting in charge of that super ministry, a farmer or an agricultural presentative in doing such a thing who'd be observing a long tradition in Brazil, which is putting the FOX in charge of the hen coop. So it would be tantamount to basically subordinating the environment to agricultural interests. And this is something that's got people very very concerned in environmental circles, if you had to sort of summarize farmers attitude toward deforestation preserving the rainforest, what our farmers views in general on these deforestation policies traumas in general in Brazil, most of them will tell you they're against further deforestation illegal deforestation. So the have the forest code, which I mentioned earlier. Which requires them to protect the streams on their properties in not deforest a minimum of vegetation. And most of them say that they respect that low. They just want to see it implemented. But the backside of that law is that it does allow deforestation. So for instance, if you are in the south of Brazil, and the limit is, for instance, twenty percent v Lyon has to be protected if you have forty percent that's forest. You can do farce out of the twenty percent. So farmers in Brazil champion, this low that they have to protect the environment. But the other side of that is that the law does actually allow a little bit of deforestation, and there's a lot of ways of sort of bending it. And if you don't have very strict supervision. Yes, very hard to sort of catch them. So I'm the boss, and our farmers are hoping that they'll get an easing of these restrictions, and they believe that if Bolsonaro can get these regulatory agencies off their backs they'll be able to do that easier with fewer fines, also if the environmental ministry is subordinated to the agriculture ministry. They believe they'll be able to get other things such as Ben sector science and other things approved more easily the danger of. Course is that if you remove the supervision, the less, ethical, farmers and other sectors of the rural community illegal loggers illegal minors. They will also take their cue, and we could see a massive increase in deforestation of the Amazon outside of Brazil. Is there a risk of consumer backlash? If Boston our eases environmental standards had one of the big risks for Brazilian agriculture. And this is why when we talk about busy Negra Celtic went up talking about a uniform group of people. So the ones who are very excited about a chance of illegally deforesting, probably smaller pharma's or less ethical operators on the frontiers of farmlands of Brazil, but the larger operators larger farmers the trading company's value these environmental protections because this allows them to sell Brazilian soya bean and Brassinne vif with some level of stamp of approval in terms of the environment. If they lose that that could be very damaging for Brazilian sales in developed countries, especially of beef. It's already big problem to trace. Products coming out of Brazil, especially mates, but also soy. And if you suddenly start to have a lot of deforestation that's gonna really cloud the Brazilian brand. The other thing that's bad for Brazil in general is I've a recent years it's actually developed a very good image in terms of its efforts to protect the environment. If it suddenly a gets the image of deforestation and the things that come with deforestation which include land conflict murder confiscation of lands from Indians genocide of Indian tribes. This is not a good thing for the Brazilian image. And it's not really good for busy and businesses. Well, that's a rather grim picture. But on a more hopeful note, Joe you've written about project to map the DNA sequences of species that are in the Amazon river basin. What are the aims of this project who are its backers? Yeah. This is a project that's being coordinated by the World Economic Forum and a Peruvian entrepreneur Fuan Carlos Castillo, Hugo and the I'm of it is to map all the biological assets of the Amazon and Cody. Defy rights of usage for industry and research is in blockchain to dual of this by twenty twenty and the idea is to try to capture it the intellectual property that's imbedded in the Amazon and try to use that commercially. But the key thing here is that the proceeds of this use should go back to the communities that live in the Amazon, the traditional communities conservation funds, and the governments that are actually in the Amazon and the way that they want to do that is that using blockchain and special contracts that will be able to trace the usage of this information around the world, and those who use it once I have proceeds once they make profit from this information will have to pay it back in some form. So it's an extremely ambitious project. A lot of scientists around the world, and it's a feel like an extension of the human genome project in the sense, it's extending that to the rest of the species on the planet. So it's a Ray of hope to them as on if it can be implemented. Wow. So how much will it cost, and is it likely to make a lot of? Money in the long term. I mean when you talk about using the block chain to return profits to local communities is this potentially a profitable enterprise in the long run. Yes. Well, let's see to go. If the costs the human genome project apparently costs four point eight billion dollars and generated sixty five dollars for the US economy for every public all of that was invested and this project the entire project that includes Amazon, which call the earth by genome project is expected to cost four point seven be into complete. And if we go by past products that have been developed out of Amazon organic material we can see that they are huge profits to be made especially in pharmaceuticals. But there are also other ways of using intellectual property that's embedded in the Amazon. If you like, for instance, there's interests to studying the traffic patterns of soldier ants to try to develop autonomous vehicles, and there are other processes in the zone that are being studied that can be used for the people think can be developed as technology. So the backers of the project cited. Proceeds could be billions of dollars in the long run. But it's just a matter of actually implementing it and seeing if it works. It's all very new that sounds like a really fascinating initiative, but all this is happening quite late in the day for the world's rainforests. Do you think there's enough time to see results and could something like this set of precedent for efforts to save forests? Elsewhere hit I think this time there's still time. Brazil has deforested twenty percent of them online for us, which is you know, when you think about the other bombs in Brazil such as the Atlantic forest. It's not much Atlantic us as almost being wiped out. So the Amazon is still there to be protected. I think it depends a lot of global pressure on Brazil as well as pressure from within Brazil. There's a lot of support within Brazil to save Amazon. So it depends a lot on people mobilizing to make sure that those unethical sectors of agriculture mining and logging and not
