"So they could be polished away. Some of the same algorithms now underpin the technology eye doctors use to measure patients eyes before lasik surgery. So you could say NASA research and development has already helped millions of people improve their eyesight. And lockney says there are so many other things in our lives that NASA has either invented or improved from baby formula to cell phone cameras to exercise equipment to sleep with technology and temperature regulating fabrics, air purifiers, water purifiers, devices for tracking endangered animals, techniques. The list goes on and on. The ultimate is to use the NASA temperature regulating matters pad and sheets on your memory foam mattress. You get the full NASA night's sleep. So as NASA's Dan lockney is happy to remind anyone who will listen, the benefits of his agency's research and development aren't just found in outer space. Four 18 is our time and you're listening to all things considered on 90.1 W ABE. I'm Jim burris, it's a pleasure to have you along on this Thursday afternoon.

"Might be. Emily fang and pure news zapper is Ukraine. This is 90.1 WBE. I'm Jim burris. Some employees are the cop county schools, may soon be able to carry guns on the job. The school board voted four to two last night to let certain personnel carry firearms, but that would not include teachers. Employees would have to be authorized by the district to carry, and they'd also be required to undergo firearms training. Education reporter Martha Dalton joins us now to break down what was a surprise vote. Martha, welcome. Thanks, Janet. It's good to be here. And I mentioned it's a surprise vote. Talk about that. Right. Well, this comes just a few weeks after Cobb county superintendent. Chris rexdale said publicly that he was not in favor of arming teachers in the aftermath of the Yuval shooting in Texas. Now, this policy we should be clear, this policy does not include teachers, but it would essentially let the district hire citizens to act as police officers. The district would train them and would put them through background checks and things like that. But I do think it was a surprise to a lot of folks because it was put on the agenda a few days before the meeting. It wasn't clear if the board would vote on it and they did. So there wasn't a lot of time for discussion and public feedback. But I do think some people were surprised at how quickly the new policy was approved. What was the reason they gave for this shift, this new policy? Well, superintendent ragsdale said is because it's so hard to hire law enforcement officers. And so here's what ragsdale said at the board meeting on Thursday. Quite honestly, if the board gave me a blank check and said go hard school resource officer for every single school in Cobb county, I could not do that. There he talks about how hard it is to find people who are qualified. Now, essentially what the district would do with this new policy is hire people and train them as police officers, although they wouldn't be certified officers. You mentioned it was a surprise vote, but what's the response been after that vote was taken? Well, there were some gun control activists at the board meeting from groups like March for our lives and moms demand action who protested as the board tried to vote. And the protests got so loud that the board had to take a brief recess, then they tried again, but the opponents did not stay silent

"Thought you were moving to? Is this what it looked like in your mind? No, not only is it not the Idaho I was expecting. It's not the country anyone was expecting. It's a country that's becoming more diverse. Racially, ethnically, and one where people of different gender identities and orientations have over time been able to live more openly. That's NPR's odette yousef, who's still with us. So odette, it sounds like even if there had not been a U haul full of white nationalists on the day of that pride event, there still would have been a big story unfolding in Coeur d'Alene. I think so wanna, and it's worth noting that the patriot front arrests wouldn't have happened if a concerned community member hadn't seen those men loading into that U haul truck. And when that person called police about it, the police had already had weeks of working closely with community members and organizations to be primed for this kind of a threat. You know, it's really kind of similar to how Victoria Keenan was the single person who's experienced decades ago brought down Aryan nations. You know, if she hadn't been able to tap into a network of organizations that were primed to uphold the law and track these threats, things might have been very different. All right, NPR's odette youssef, thanks so much. My pleasure. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. And at 5 18, you're listening to it on 90.1. I'm Jim burris, it's a pleasure to have you along on this

"Still in lockdown from their apartment in Shanghai Thanks you guys Thank you rob Nice to be here rob Our time now is four 44 It's all things considered on 90.1 W ABE I'm Jim burris Atlanta is well poised for a corporate travel rebound relatively speaking even better than many other cities of our size It turns out what that bounce back looks like is different from the pre-pandemic period For one it's slower but steadier at least when it comes to international air travel and that's just one prediction from consulting firm Deloitte's just released report on corporate travel in 2022 and beyond Brian Terry is the firm's global aviation leader and when we spoke earlier I asked him what's slowing that segment International first has been traveling to dampened on a period by many of the restrictions We have the constraints and concerns associated with testing and the ability to reenter concerns of that nature as more of those restrictions and regulations and policies come down We anticipate international travel will return at the same pace as the leisure traveler return The wildcards here are corporate travel and corporate international travel So I think we will see those again on that same trajectory Hopefully by the end of 2022 but no later than 2023 There was something in the report that kind of stood out to me and I thought it was pretty interesting And that's this notion of work from home and how that's going to affect travel long term It's not that we're going to necessarily not have travel because folks are working from home but they're going to be new cases or new ways that folks are computing in say to their corporate headquarters Kind of talk about how that shift is happening that you all saw Sure That's a great question And an interesting phenomenon that has emerged through the pandemic obviously there was a big work from home component That actually translated to people actually moving away in many cases from where their work was located So we expect that trend to continue as part of that phenomenon We will see a shift towards workers traveling naturally just to return to their office on a periodic basis Companies that will have a culture of returning back to in office environment that will tend to increase demand for travel within those companies And let's talk about why folks are traveling Why they're staying in the hotels and getting on the airplanes And traditionally that's been a number of conferences and events How are those likely to change going forward Sure on the leisure side I think it was as simple as there was just pent up demand on the corporate side What is driving travel And we have a matrix that looks at that And what's really coming back faster than others or anything that's helping drive or advance businesses from a commercial perspective So think about things We're getting out to meet clients to go and network at conferences and interact Anything that can help advance relationships I think one of the learnings from the pandemic was that virtual meetings are good but they're not a replacement for face to face If we didn't have a pandemic do you think some of these factors would eventually have come into the arena anyway I think they would Technology has had an encroachment on travel for more than two decades I mean virtual meetings are not new They've been around for a long time But I think necessity dictated a greater use but I think the pandemic also again as we talked about just showcase the real need and the real value for personal interaction as well What are the wild card factors that could totally disrupt the predictions in the trends I wouldn't necessarily call them wild cards There are a couple of things that are actually known events right now So first one is sustainability sustainability is going to have a material impact on travel Certainly businesses will need to be respond to be more sustainable Consumers expect businesses that they associate with the more sustainable a shorter term wildcard is inflation and cost control as the economy returned in general and companies wanted to return to profitability certainly being able to.

"ABE where ATL meets NPR and I'm Jim burris along with our vice president of business development Ayesha Hyman and Aisha I'm just kind of stunned by that last segment What a great thing to hear the person in his own words talk about his foundation moment Moments And saddened at his passing but it's kind of the thing that only NPR can do Only public radio can do And that is tell a story that sticks with you to the degree I think that if you heard that last one this one sticks with you It is always so great to learn about the lives of artists and authors and scientists and people who you know we know about the work that they do but we don't always know what inspired their work But Jim I got to tell you what I was thinking as I heard that story was I missed that memo in parenting that I could have just gotten that book hatchet and just set my children out into the Woods and they would have been able to take care of themselves How did I miss that Good thing maybe that you didn't come to know about hatchet that moment Well I always learned something new when I'm listening to Debbie AVE and that's thanks to you Jim and all of our wonderful journalists and reporters storytellers researchers who bring all of these great stories to our lives You make that all happen as a supporter of W ABE And so we're counting on hearing from you now especially now because we have this wonderful partnership with live line animal project We've been talking about.
