"In the backfield one place and have them in the slot the next play then he's got his hand in the dirt his life and he's not going to do that type of stuff. Here's the thing. I feel like you can use a line back or not. Every linebacker. You can use a linebacker to cover John Schmidt. I don't like some teams can maybe not every team has that line back? Linebackers and Lee who can I think with Hunter Henry that's a much tougher task. I think you need the extra defensive back on the field to cover Hunter Henry and if you can get teams into five or six defensive back sets and then you'll have this massive offensive line. Like we talked about the beginning and Sony Michelle and Damien Harris who want to run downhill and crack skulls. You really going to kind of put defenses in a tough spot between do we want the extra body out there for a while Henry or do we want the extra body in there to deal with this massive offensive line power Run game and can can become a part of that if he comes back and having cameras the big body in the backfield. So I like again the match up maybe play to play Johnny Smith is tougher, but the overall gameplan match up in the Personnel match up in the Personnel mismatches that Hunter Henry gives you like I look at that especially now with this is Josh Brown move and like you talked about the direction they seem to be heading in and I get really excited by that. So that's that's why I Mentor happy. I understand where everybody is coming from with under entered the thing that concerns me the most about Hunter Henry is the durability wage. Right. Is he going to be able to stay healthy eat healthy and maybe that's we've talked about in the past that might be the Chargers trading staff and that's been a disaster there in LA or San Diego wherever they've been over the years, but she has had some injury concerns and to me Hunter Henry is your prototypical white I-10 right? He's going to put his hand in the dirt. He's going to run option routes. He's going to run white why option was his number one route in La I go up to the top of the route break it off, whichever direction the defender is not in. It's the Jason Witten route, right? Jason Williams. Probably going to make the Hall of Fame off of that one play Kronk's route was the Crosser or the owner about behind their linebacker level or the seem right under Henry Morgan option guy at the top of the road with his quickness. So there's some you know translation there certainly into their their thoughts their offense with that role, but Donna Smith just the athleticism the versatility just really speaks to me it does if somebody that I think is going to be for Josh McDaniels. That's that's someone that home Really scheme up, whereas with Hunter Henry you kind of need to alter and you kind of need to say okay. This is going to be his role because this is what he does best, right, you know, apparently someone that you're going to break out the month for sure Johnny Smith isn't a bad option. I just think they need talent and and you know head-to-head who's the more talented player. I think it's Hunter Henry lad this I get the durability concerns and on normally the first one mentioning that I didn't talking about non-stop The Coop low, but his games played over five years fifteen fourteen..

". What is the state of aerospace and defense today, , and what's your outlook for twenty twenty one and has that changed at all in the in the recent past Recent past go back into a January February odd things have changed dramatically. . If you say recent past in terms of how feeling today for. . So spilling back in <hes> in. . June. . Not Not nearly as much. . I think know by sum it up I think I look at the industry and so almost tell two cities. . If you remember that Dickens novel where on the commercial side, , we have all kinds of things going on and you know the impact of airlines and the reduction in capacity, , and now reduced number of aircraft being taken and all that kind of stuff going on dampening down <hes> you know the business and Yoga Cyber Defence and defence. . Largely continuing to perform you know well <hes>. . There are some some issues. . There are some blips in supply chain certainly related to <hes> things like covid. . But it's really is tell to city and we look at Boeing and Airbus both announcing production rates and rate cuts, , and of course, , we have the existing 737 <hes> challenge facing history as well. . No I think there's a different side of the coin when we start looking at what's happening on the defense side. . And what is that different side of the coin much more positive right? ? Well, , it's much more positive and you know this morning are. . Reported there the results in in even just in our she concede example of the Tele two cities playing out. . Right now and <hes> you know. . I think. . What I'd like to say is that looking at what's what we're hearing and if we were going to go into farmer air, , show the share, which, , , of course, , unfortunately, , we did not every year accenture steps back and looks at kind of what we're seeing across the numerous research elements that we have our tech vision, , our commercial index and supply chain research, , and we look at the work we're doing for clients we look at what we're talking to our. . Clients about in terms of where their priorities are. . We look at what's going on in industry at large, , and from that, , we try to distill out what we think are really going to be the you know quote unquote stories to watch and weird do that this year Joe I think there's four things that I think would come out in their four things that I hear consistently I think pat would echo this well when we talked to sea level executives Across our clients defense and commercial, , those four things are related to cash management number one number two supply chains smart manufacturing number three workforce in workforce impact in a before's is really rounding technology in systems in resiliency of those systems. . into look thinking about where we are today in covert and and what companies need be thinking about as they look forward, , their calendar twenty-one. . Those four things are really top of mind. . Pat, what's , what are your thoughts had? ? We gone to Farnborough what were you prepared to be talking about I? ? Think the themes that John mentioned are spot on one concept that intertwined through cash management supply chain workforce and systems resiliency is really a need to continue the digital transformation <hes> the the level of of change that aerospace and defense companies are dealing with today is is really unprecedented and I think it's changed <hes>. . Focus of of trying to accelerate the agility of decision-making workforces is been fascinating topic. . How has a house the debate on that changed in this? ? I mean, , we had a lot of <hes> ish. . A lot of the talk was about workforce shortages and now companies are laying off tens of thousands of people said, , Short Term Blip, , John, , I mean what are you telling companies to do to be prepared for the workforce of the future? ? You know. . It's interesting. If . you think back a couple years, , we're worried about the grace. . ooh Nami and everybody retiring he let me go back <hes> back to January timeframe worried about shortages whether it's pilots are or people in the maintenance shops in of course, , we see companies laying off and furloughing on the commercial side, , but we also see companies on the defense side hiring, , right? ? So I think Lockheed announced five thousand new hires northbound eight thousand new. . Hires right. . So it's almost again that tell see what's happening but I think you know the three things that were talking to clients lot about now in this code world where we have more people remark in remotely than we ever did before Amsterdam you have more you're gonNA WANNA add onto this but it's really about you know the people experience how how each individual worker is being interacted with with their company and that comes down to. . How they were who they work with and how they get their work done. . The second thing is around or Culture. . The culture particularly, , I think in our industry and maybe I'm biased because I'm in this of this industry but you know you walk into the building and you see the sign, , you see the flag, , you walk through the hallways almost any aerospace defense office or even in factory assembly floor, , and you see the product you see pictures of the product you see people, , pictures of people using the products I mean that helps build culture. . Now, , I, , see the four walls of my Home Office or maybe it's my kitchen table or wherever I happen to be working remotely. . It's it's a big topic these days how you manage in we'd and maintain culture in the third is really about the work itself and how the workforce works at work in Delhi deals with things like remote collectively high-performance compute environments. .

Will My Supply Chain Survive COVID-19?
"The commercial aerospace supply chain is writing. The sudden collapse, the spring passenger air travel after the outbreak of the latest novel Corona Virus and it's cove in Nineteen, disease has upended fortunes in the airliner manufacturing industry. That matters because commercial aerospace is responsible for about three quarters of the whole aerospace and defense sectors business activity. Cash is king right now throughout the supply chain and companies are struggling to have enough liquidity, according to what several advisors and analysts tell aviation week. while. Liquidity is more of a function of the wider economic downturn inside aerospace. There are even bigger challenges. Where production rates were once being pushed higher now a Williams are slashing them cascading pressure down the supply chain. At the L. A. M. in the top tier level. It has probably never been more important to have insight into your supply chain. Joining me to talk about that need, and what to do about it are John Schmidt? The Global Andy Lead at Accenture and Joyce Klein. Accenture leader in applied intelligence in the North American amd practice John Joyce. Welcome back. Thanks might go good to be back so John let me start with you. It seems obvious that OEM's and tier ones want insight into their suppliers. But while that was always true, I used to be about making sure that there were no bottlenecks that slowed or stop record high production now things chain what of new conditions that demand and customers pay better attention to their supply chain. Might go and in many ways the aerospace industry you know has a clear split between the companies that are working in the Corso world, and does indefens- you in the commercial. As you say, you know the concern used to be, we have a supply constrained world with very predictable demand, right always pushing for more trying take need those increased rates pushed by Boeing and. and Airbus and in the current world that's changed dramatically to being more of a supply volatile with unpredictable demand in the defense and space side of things you know things have largely remained in a predictable demand with an increased supply chain volatility, so by just keep looking at those things, predictability and the the constraint or volatility the spy chain. That's where the primary differences. And Commercial. We know that demand is going to be directly related to the bounce back of commercial air travel and the relative rates airlines choose to bring back stored aircraft versus take more efficient models on order from the OEM's causing more volatility in and demand, variability and defense. It's a bit different again. Demand Israel remained and the supply chains been impacted by Kobe in some cases they're tier one two or three companies, who source both commercial and defense or trying to generate cash to cover expenses and other cases, local Cobra outbreaks, and our common actions are impacting the spires ability to deliver on schedule, known both cases, aerospace and defense companies need. To deal with all totally like never before whether commercial or defense. So Joyce. Last time John and I talked here on Chuck six with. He kind of gave me the peak and do some new technology you all were working on. It's a new capability to peer into the supply chain including using an algorithm approach that allows more predictive insight, potentially even the ability to hotspot. What factories might be in trouble in the future? Can you tell us a little bit about what accenture is working on? And how does this work? Yes, absolutely Michael Accenture? We've been working with our clients in the supply chain area for many years using analytics and machine learning. In fact, if you go back to last year's pariser show in our accenture shall a. we had a digital showcase. Demo that focused on intelligence supply chain, and what this demo is a together machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and we used I at supply chain Europe e data to really understand delivery delays identify missing parts. We also looked at the opportunity for Automation Muller. Doing now is we're bringing together? All Lot of data sets and we're using artificial intelligence to help companies deal with the increase in volatility manage. Manage uncertainty and really get at supplier resiliency. That's really the core of what our solution is all about now so for North, America a and D client what we've done is we've taken and artificial intelligence engine that uses the supplier Jadot and what we're trying to do. We're actually working to predict the number of days late or a particular part, and we're doing that by bringing together a supplier. Number roaches order number eleven worry day in quantity, combination you all that information, Heather actually identify the number of as laid the opulent part is going to be and so by knowing the number of days way them. What were able to do is fight and determine. Do I have enough inventory? As coverage or that? Particular part is ultimately if I Joan I need to make additional decisions around production, and so what? We've been able to do with our solution. Experience up to ten percent improvement apart availability production. And we're also able to change the role of the delivery service analyst. Previous lanes individuals really operating. All here.

"Handy Tuesday and for much of much of this part of the country it's kind of a dreary day out there so I just expect that we'll talk with pre staging through the course of the show as we normally do in the seven and eight o'clock hour hi John Schmidt joins us a little later on and we got a lot to get to some corrections apparently to be made and you know what frankly this is probably where I should start I think a lot of you probably made this mistake but luckily the fine folks up at The New York Times were in a position to correct this for us so as you start your day I don't want you now going through the course of the day were you might have political back and forth with the folks are being ill informed so who is Susan so here we go Jill Filipovic who is utilizing the New York times piece believe about the believe all women thing is an opinion piece believe all women is a right wing canard to and so C. what happened there it was political infiltration well the messaging some of you were probably under the assumption of specially around things like the women's March the Kavanagh here range zab Democrats the media and others were utilizing and establishing this me too movement under the proposition of believe all women is it let me let me just let me just pull the room is that how you understood across believe all women yes it was yes well I'm ready for this hash tag Mandela affect because it was not in fact it was only believe women and in the in fact the G. O. P. weaponize the phrase by inserting the word all and apparently because we have a bunch of pictures infiltrated the women's March hacked multiple Twitter accounts for multiple high profile feminist organizations I would add that there is not a level to which they will not see as sync apparently hi jacked Twitter accounts from many Hollywood elite who decided to weigh in on this we had a whole list here in in these pictures of banners obviously those are people that infiltrated the various marches ward says literally we believe all women are we believe all survivors NPR eight G. O. P. I. a bastion of information propaganda they also highlighted how you should believe all women so that was nice do you know what they did also you'll find this impressive they were able to takeover if only for a short time the the website Jezebel which as we know is one of those Cocker sites and frankly folks it doesn't get much more leftist than that you want your soul crushed read the comments just under any story I don't care what it is they're the same people right that video game blog that roster go to and then they would never write about video games we get all angry although they started writing about video games in the eye yeah but then because they were told not to they're like Hey you know if they were told to talk about video games don't don't make it please your video game website right and then some for like Hey here's some video games of radical sound tracks and it was like a Bernie Sanders commercial no shockingly that employee no longer works at that website several things immense joy in that decision yeah well it's good and there is the best part of that was under that was the G. O. P. you did that what is yeah yeah yeah because they they also were of the believe all women messaging and so we can only assume at that time the GOP had seized control of the Gawker website operations so as to I infiltrate the messaging with that three little letters A. L. L. so I like I learned a lot this morning reading this piece and in the end I believe in the Mandela effect now because if not then we all got it wrong but I think what happened is we all in this would have been a literally a better explanation a run by this idiot writer this would be more believable more believable would not be dead the G. O. P. took believe women inserted the word all highly publicized did so would became the more common usage so that psychically they knew in the future they could then weaponized it to use against a democratic opponent because that's what's being argued more believable would be simply one or two sentences explaining that from between the time of the cabin I hearing and the time of the Joe Biden presidency run we've all slipped into an alternative universe but still have memories of the other one so I'm gonna go with Mandela effect or there's a third possibility these people are utterly full of crap and China hypocrites I'll let you decide also coming up on the show governor Cooper please do we have that wonderful little sound clip right here he is very concerned for your health that is completely irresponsible and absolutely unacceptable so yeah even though even though at this point the the single instance of this this is one of the this is one of those internet legends this is what it's turned into now even the folks in Washington have backed off their initial assertion covert parties Kovin parties like chicken pox parties for the kids but coalbed parties if you remember there was a report at a wall a wall of Washington which is fun to say where this happened and that's how it it hit the national news it was my day or two later even the law enforcement by the way said yeah that's what happened law enforcement came out early okay maybe that's not what happened somehow the issue of covert parties came up during the governor's press conference which is a conference where only some of the press always gets the questions and the other press you might ask as to actual questions gets ignored they had another one of those I apparently he does not want you to have a co that party Ross you guys are having a big boom Memorial Day coved party right I mean we're planning on the S. and now you know mark he's been probably cook at all we can do you want to go back yes of course and and now he's been crying don't we have to kill the party no not in my right in that day yeah I don't know how I'll literally shaking now so now the Indian much like much like the Hayes family families all across the he said in North Carolina are not going to have to cope with the balance house that seems a randomly at useful actually inflated overlook culture yes stick him spreading statement for myself like the in the in flight and they look like things this one looks like the covert well like the the German round bouncers and then it's got cookies covered in Kobe yeah right okay yes yes Sir okay well you wanna make sure because you don't wanna you don't want to have fastened and just smeared it on the edges can you imagine you go to a covered party you don't get covert wow so you you know that's a going it's like going to they go into an orgy not hooking up right at that point thank right what what I would show up in the big eyes wide shut party you're just in the corner who who would talk to just crying in your marriage yeah yeah I can't speaking of mass ID it I got an email I'm gonna have to dig this up somebody sent me there was a I was on vacation last week and it was just a really simple question answered can you just explain to me what Karen is you hear that phrase and to some extent I have the whole caring thing got born of a couple women who went viral on videos questioning I think in one instance what why a black family was in the pool area of an H. away place and and and so you did you turn into a racing but it get better care and doesn't have to be a race thing as its utilized within pop culture it's you know what it's I think it's best that I use video evidence to explain what a Karen is and let me tell you what have we have we have some video evidence this this lady is bedside herself because she wants to go to a grocery store the grocery store has amassed policy which you can agree or disagree with but it's that's a private grocery store right and I'm gonna say right up front you want to be consistent on this when when folks are being critical of people like governor Cooper who is seemingly ignored the responsibility the government leaders have to take into account civil rights and specific rights within the constitution and then create a least impactful path for their application during the pandemic which as you saw with the churches was not the case said the judge when you X. when you expect to delineate those rights you can not screw up the delineation of the difference between between rights and privileges in the in the sense that we may have a privilege jobs you know going into that store you do not have a right to go in the store because the store is not the government and the store is not violating your rights because they can't then the the constitutional protections are for the government I II Roy Cooper doesn't violate your rights not the general manager over at the and then insert whatever the grocery store is well let's just say that this conversation that this woman is having is not going well with this manager and holy crap wait to hear it we'll get into that coming up next here on the KC o'day radio program the following testimony so here with the word that's just weird Terry cloth good thank you Terry and why does he get his own fabric the journey below SPF fifty fight off some.

Chicago in New York City. that's great yeah. today it's a little bit more well we're global or global city. we don't spend too much time with the rivalry with New York City. yeah and I feel like back then it was happy to see we're putting our money where our mouth was coming into the rivalry only a one two grants. I spend so much money on this tune for luggage. Hey Logan we've not gonna come there was NO one cares we did would be there is a bigger more expensive the New York that we win we wouldn't. the. I know it's funny to think about the the the Logan tomb is in the what is considered the central business tech district that the mayor life is talking about knoll marijuana dispensaries should be in the central business district of Chicago she came out today she had a big press conference a man it's just a beginning he always want to talk about this but she I thought was really Trixie shape the narrative in a way that I'm not sure that I was ever thinking this way but she kind of like threw shade at the critics were like I know the rich and wealthy one all the dispensaries. but I'm giving in to the neighborhoods. this kind of a weird way to play like this idea that downtown Chicago for whatever reason the reason that everyone is scratching their head about why she chose not to put dispensaries downtown had to do with all these were these rich fat cats. given all the marijuana money. I didn't I didn't think about it that way at all I thought he was probably more about and I don't maybe this is her way of misdirect ing. what I thought it had everything to do with not like we saw with the president this past week when he talked about homelessness in San Francisco and and what I saw firsthand Seattle about the the. I guess the relationship between. dispensaries and marijuana and. who live on the street. for whatever reason. and you're seeing it in San Francisco and you sing in Seattle a singular been L. A. and and other places too where there just seems to be an abundance of of. people who live on the street and marijuana use and and it changes the. hello what's the best way to say this the changes the impression. from from tourism. and I think that you know as as the marijuana laws and states adapt involve from and the evolution of of the first states that adopted and in Colorado or California. you see the next wave of state thing I don't like cherry picking what they like what they don't like well you know one with that comes an element. man we don't a bunch of people just hanging out from the dispensary and as I saw and I talked about this program when I went to Seattle the for my summer vacation my family saw first hand. a correlation between dispensaries and people who lived on the streets and just an unbelievable amount of actual public smoking. so was just third wreaked. I wanna everywhere he went the downtown will stretching from pikes market there. and I know that there are ticket I know their laws he can smoke in public but I think at a certain point one of the cops gonna do within the home you know it's like we entertain me okay. so I will I thought from the get go when I saw that she was going by zones and she didn't want to put a downtown that the real reason was to protect tourism downtown to not have that kind of element that would be all over Michigan Avenue and State Street in other places would be a you know they went kinda keep it so the smoke free and from the chick fillet on state rand off Lake Street. and and I think they're they're I think a lot of people and that's what I was reading on Twitter was saying the sounds like you want that element you don't care what happens and humble park you don't care what happens in in the zone the other six zones or seven zones that you set up you just wanna protect downtown but I thought it was interesting today she spun it the other way saying no I'm punishing downtown you rich a lead one percenters at live downtown you're not going to get. your grubby money hands on this money this awesome amount of money that was an appeal like ten million here but there's so much money. prize but I I mean I always to end it are we done in thinking this or what we're most people thinking along our lines yeah I don't know I I guess you know because you see the alderman Riley and you see some of the business owners in this area saying well you know don't we want essentially talking about don't we want. they're the only want the money that we generate from tourism. when it comes to recreational marijuana don't we want tourists being a dispensaries buying weed and the tax of that going like this is gonna be buying. and seems to mean that and that's and that's and I guess it's a done interesting thought so yeah wouldn't she want people just don't like not only casino to talk about casinos been downtown. and so I thought that was what they were talking about but to Sir categorize them or put them in sort of shape the narrative to act like they're. these rich down counters are going to get that these are for the neighborhoods neighborhoods going to benefit from this. I don't know. I'm first went it's hard for me I heard from you so I'm not sure if that's how I see it. and I guess you can make an argument saying if there is financial. and I guess it would be the people who are get the dispensary licenses we're talking about small business financial opportunity for people who otherwise wouldn't be thought about to get the dispenser in the old apple store on Michigan Avenue. yes you can make that argument but since of the reason why you don't want to spend three is downtown I feels a little disingenuous I feel like it's all about protecting the sanctity of Michigan Avenue and the cash cow that is downtown Chicago from an element that has creeped up in other major cities that probably was not thought of. that at the time when they when they legalize marijuana they didn't think that that was going to be an issue that it would deter tourism. the people would want to go to the cities because they want to deal with the element that surround. and I I I I would have more respect for the mayor to come out to say that. the mayor came out and said listen I you know live Michigan Avenue we want people out tourists up and down here we don't want like just plumes of marijuana smoke everywhere sorry that's not that's not what we want that's not the future direction we want to see if our downtown Chicago put in humble park. put in lake view there's so much room in Lakeview east lake you Wesley few any any part a lake view. you can have it so we'll see how that shakes out are more to come here on extension seven twenty stay with. right now AT T. mobile get an awesome iPhone ten are on us when you bring your family.

"Nondescript alley way we're gonna get to in just a moment with Chicago historian John Schmidt who was once a high school teacher who turned into a one of the preeminent voices in Chicago history talking about your new book hidden Chicago landmarks John great to see you thanks for coming downtown with us today we'll talk about this but what was the impetus for doing this book well about thirty years ago I bought my first house six oh god forty years ago I bought my first house and I'd already been working on my PhD and or even teaching history for some years but when I moved in after I'd been there for a few weeks I found out there was this house down the street from me that was a historic landmark kind of an old Porteous historic landmark. start to make collecting these things of the of the hidden parts of Chicago that usually aren't reported the places you know getting the upgrade the usual tour guide and in a funk in that way so that's a start it is interesting because you're right there's now it's a cottage industry to have tours of history Chicago the architecture of the make and you know. but when you think about Chicago history especially where we're standing there's no plaque there's no remembers people people forget what you used to be a plaque but it disappeared but anyway talking about where we are let's talk about so we're standing right here in a in a nondescript alley way in the heart of the loop right off of Monroe white why this spot what are we talking about today okay well we're at the north end over here of a piece of property where the key to west of the piece of property. eighteen thirty three when this was kind of fun and the farm land and so on your early years of Chicago and a man named Wheeler Jones. a. I'm from the state of Illinois north of Monroe street. ninety three ten from corporate when Fuhrman role to Madison he honestly on in the. the farmer there for a few years. things get a little a little involved after a few years he sells the southern half of this land to a guy named Barnes okay but the Barnes land is only eighty feet wide there is a ten foot wide. but the west in at a property. that they keep over there. Jones keeps for access to the south presumably wanted to scale down the center. the company was put aboard a trade is three that was passed your lamp so he keeps his copy and he keeps this access what few years later Wheeler Jones spent a lot cheaper nor he sells off the north part of the land he sells it off to somebody named Henderson. the end is that the Henderson and his heirs will continue to have access to this ten foot wide going down toward the toward easing the think about too because you know we're we're at even after the the great Chicago fire administered to build and build and build in this area to think that Monroe and Clark street in Chicago downtown hotels and everything that's happening in downtown and then the bustling loop would actually be a cow pasture that would be right in the heart of it it it is big enough you're right to to be a spot for cattle let's walk in but let's just walk right through here and you get between these buildings you can hear how it changes but this is you could. this is a wide indoor cat. alleyway this is for cattle originally this was an alley and this would be for the current building build up here for so for many years after the fire and so on this book this like an. then in nineteen twenty six the people that have the southern. pretty the successors to the to the Barnes family they decide they want to build this twenty two story building up here. the people in the northern part the successors to the Hendersons may look into their deed and they see all we got this ten. you can't build on. this is. the money well the people in the southern part here they want to build a skyscraper. which is what twenty two stories with in those days they decide. the number that is said Hey we just redesigned our building. you guys and that's what they did was redesigned building and. over. how. yeah it's an indoor. just got a letter about press at the time in the nineteen twenties and became a big big tourist attraction for while mayor Kelly came under the thirty to put a plan. they did the WPA guide to Illinois this is. story and. I mean when you talk about hidden Chicago landmark we're standing in it no one's bothering us it's public property I guess but knoll in from the street if you're on Monroe street you would have no concept that this is here they're too big black doors nondescript it looks like it's private you have no idea that this is your take exception to that just because people going to buy the book in the. story in the book because that's how geographically organized. let's take a look at the sorry for the guy out there who's sitting there waiting for the for the valet parking for the head section at center cool tell which by the way we should give them a plug high tension on what happened here because you see mention the plaque and and this was a tourist attraction did greed takeover did did we just forget about this crucial moment in Chicago history basically people for overtime during the nineteen seventies when they were building on the north park over here. this came in the news again and they did a search through the ball through the legal books and everything and during the nineteen seventies people said well maybe maybe that. provides to win the in the settlement maybe that doesn't have any kind of a bearing after all right so you know it was kind of open here what's going on it's hard to believe there was a legal challenge but at the time the buildings around here said well you know what there's nothing that stops us from from closing this often they did it and there was no legal challenge with the clothes off the north and over here now conceivably the people that own the building in the north and they can just get out make a walk right through here like any other person cancellous took out their access they just chose to close off their own their own section it's a fascinating spot that we're in and I it's it's awesome to for Chicago history but this is all of your book whether you're talking about where you know throttle Reagan's home whether you're talking about landmarks who's in the login stick tomb everything down if you could think about you. leaning tower of Niles we go to the southern part of the citizen and chanted lake many people don't know it's there but you drive by the lake out there yeah the reserve lake out there a little late you know you see an old maps what is like a muscle there yeah most of its still there at least part of it you know they're all kinds of landmarks Chicago's oldest public monument right on the border of the Christmas story house overnight Hammond with this Chicago metro you know. when you're doing this you know because a lot of it is like I remember this place and I remember this place but how do you go about researching is where do you find all the stories to put in your book that's the good thing with going to graduate school and studying for a PhD particular university Chicago where they work you're hired. you look into old paper reporting is the first thing you do and then you double it up you look under census record second census records you can find out what Joe Louis was in nineteen forty that's all I put down that that's how I confirm they are that's right confirmed city directories SO I confirm that there's still a house in the city in the south they were clear and sterile left and the house is still saying is benefit they just renovated a short time ago that's what you do you look in a variety of sources the great thing about it too because most Chicago historical places are going to be there's going to be a plaque there's going to be some sort of designated Harker a lot of the places in your book are that that's gonna so that's a by gone here there's no plaque here that says anything about the cow path on Monroe there's many the like you said many of the houses there's nothing that says you know this is the house where carpenter was caught or you know all all the things that are in your book so there is something great about trying to collect the stuff in for the person who is a Chicago in by heart and love Chicago history they did not let people know about this stuff anyway. tell to hear a seems the more by the name of the conference rooms at the Willard council the sale of the property and so far they're not trying to close off the axis over here but I don't know maybe if we get a lot of people going through here and tour is a something like that might be to make another legal you stand right here. so it really is an indoor Ellie because you've got garbage in and some some other you have no idea the significance of this spot in Chicago's downtown judgment the new book is called a hit in Chicago landmarks and we're gonna continue that we have a series here we got to go and see a bunch more with you because this is fascinating in this is truly Chicago is for John thanks for taking us to the cow path here.

"You see that's how he's able to take credit for other people's work. He just plagiarize is the credit. I'll tell you what the guy has shall we say cojones if not brains. To figure out that we would be able to tell exactly what he has been saying about the Foxconn deal for the last year. In fact, governor was a vocal opponent of it. As far back as August twenty seventeen right after the project was announced right after this deal was announced he goes on upfront with Mike goo. Renegotiate whatever part of the deal can be negotiated. I don't think it's it's a fair deal for the people Wisconsin. I think it's a bit of a hail Mary pass. All it's a bit of a hail Mary pass. It's not a fair deal for the people of Wisconsin yet. Now, he's taking credit for that deal resulting in the manufacturing facility that Foxconn promised. Okay, later on in the interview, he actually said this is going to crap the state style. What it does is a cramps cramps estate going forward as far as what money is available for schools for roads for all number of things that the state is ultimately responsible for. Okay. All right. And what about all of those Democrats like Evert who were openly skeptical about whether Foxconn would ever build a plant at all on March sixth when the journal sentinel story ran Gordon Hintz gleefully hints, of course. As the leader of the assembly. Democrats hints tweeted out gleefully why build a factory that can't compete now with egg all over his face. As what he repeatedly told his constituents would never happen is in fact happening. He tweets again. Why would we -sconsin be interested in giving tax payer money for a project that Foxconn said cannot be competitive? It makes no sense for Wisconsin to invest in LCD industry that has cost sensitive and products that have short life cycles, why build a plant for a product with access capacity and no demand. Is this guy insane? There's no there's no demand for LCD screens. There's no. He honest to goodness believes that there is no. This is him attempting to salvage what was very obviously the hottest and wrong. Est. Take that he could have possibly had this story. And I'm still John Schmid going with analysts to believe Wisconsin might not get a Foxconn plant of any size. Analysts say veteran analysts of the flat panel industry, which is based entirely in Asia are openly skeptical that even the smaller cousin of that massive plant. What's known as generation six will be built in Wisconsin. Foxconn and the state's economic development agencies still pledged that the gen six facility will create up to thirteen thousand new full-time jobs as enshrined in the contract. But a blur of mixed signals and shifting pronouncements. Over the past year has turned Wisconsin's signature job creation project into a nonstop guessing game one that involves the most expensive package of corporate subsidies from US state and the largest ever in Wisconsin by a factor of fifty what are the chances that Foxconn eventually will operate even the smaller, Jen six plant on the farm fields of southeastern Wisconsin. I think it will be less than ten percent Yasuo Nikon head of global technology research in Tokyo at Mizzou ho securities company wrote an Email you can forget about gen ten point five in the US another career long expert. Bob O'Brien puts it at no better than fifty fifty O'Brien is president of US-based display supply chain. Consultants LLC and tracks the global flat panel industry. Okay. Yes producer. Dave reminds me Lieutenant governor Mandela Barnes. I dare them to create jobs any any word from the governor anywhere from the Lieutenant governor. Is John Schmidt over at the journal sentinel is is he going to write a follow up is he gonna talk to these analysts again, we're going to be able to find they're going to break ground this summer. This plant is going to be operational by twenty twenty. It's not going to be very tough to figure out there actually going to announce the winning bidders for all of the various contracts on this massive facility. It's not going to be nearly as big as initially projected. They say they do remain committed to thirteen thousand jobs in the state guess what they didn't reach that job creation goal in two thousand eighteen how much money did they get from the state of Wisconsin. Did did former governor Scott Walker drive over with a couple of bags full of cash. Even though they fell short. We have been systematically lied to for the last two years by the media in this state about what tax credits are they're not handing over. I mean, maybe if Scott Walker would have flown a plane load of gold Bouillon over to Taiwan, like President Obama did in Iran, maybe the leftists in this state would have felt more comfortable, but tax credits are achieved it's a tax rebate, you essentially get a break on the taxes, you pay into the state yet, we hear only I'll give Bauer credit only Bauer at the Associated Press actually was honest about how these tax credits are going to work. They're not getting money upfront. If it does that. Okay. Even with the changes Foxconn is remitted remained committed to investing up to ten billion dollars in Wisconsin. And hiring thirteen thousand people if it does that the company would qualify for about four billion dollars in state and local tax credits. If it doesn't it doesn't get the tax credits. I mean, the fact that. The media in this state in reporting on this deal. Just regurgitating democratic talking points was quite honestly nauseating. In two thousand seventeen as this deal was being very nearly torpedoed by Democrats far more interested in defeating governor Walker in the November two thousand eighteen election than they were in the long term investment in Wisconsin. They were determined to kill this deal. In fact, only the Democrats in the south eastern corridor. Only the Democrats like Peter Barca who are directly going to see the economic development in their districts, Cory Mason. Who's now, the mayor of receiving was another a supporter of this every other democrat opposed it why what possible reason could you have to support this or to oppose this sort of investment? Oh, it was too rich for the state. This is just like a, and I'm glad people are seeing nationally what we here in Wisconsin. So a couple of years ago. With respect to Amazon's HQ to just abandoning New York City because of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez and Bill de Blasio and all the other neo-socialist don't understand how simple math works. Remember after the Amazon Platt left, very infamously said now, we have money to spend on the subway system and education. No, no. You don't have that money the taxes that would be generated that Amazon would be getting a rebate on are not going to exist because Amazon's not going to be there. It is. Phenomenally. Stupid. This attitude towards financial development, and I'll give people like, Gordon Hanson. Jennifer, shilling and Iverson Mandela Barnes a little bit of credit that they were doing this. They were opposing Foxconn because of pure naked politics. I will assume. Hinson barnes. I'm not sure if they actually understand how tax credits work. We do know that hints understands how shall we say supply and demand in a free market economy works when you go into say a service industry establishment. And you get a service that you pay for Gordon. John hints surely understands how that sort of thing works, and then that establishment pays taxes, buddy. If it's desired enough by the state government, if the industry is competitive enough like Amazon's H Q two if it's desired enough by other states. Mike say, I don't know a buck. Serena you pay tax credits, or in the case of the bucks arena, you authorize billions of dollars to be used to help in the construction of set arena.

"But also possibly an independent in the former John Schmidt if he can go find sixty one hundred signatures actually need a lot more than that. To get on the ballot. What does that tell you? The fact that once again. In addition to the three may actually be maximum four people on the ballot for mayor this go round. Well, I think I think that's a good thing. I think and this is just my view, but you when you have racist that have multiple candidates more candidates. There are the more. The better the ultimate winner has Datavision to say, okay. This is who everybody voted for kind of polls the eventual winner in that direction. And as we've noticed since we've had I know we've got at least two people that I'm aware of that have registered for the Republican primary, and of course, myself is already slated as a candidate for November. It seems that our current mayor has been out more. He's been more public about. Well, here's what we're doing for our city. And and yeah, maybe that's to win an election. But it also makes him do his job. Caleb. Libertarians function gentlemen at the at the local level in any anybody can take it's wanting to have some of those national issues on those national discussions about foreign policy and deficits, but how well does a libertarian message work with the local folks. Well, you know, I I kind of look at libertarianism locally as kind of getting government back to basics and focusing on the things that governments actually supposed to do. Instead of the things all the stuff that politicians liked anyone driving around Indianapolis right now, I can see that. We obviously have not put enough. Resources behind our roads. We I think I drove through a few craters on the way over here today. But meanwhile, it'll give tax incentives to businesses and we're building cricket stadium. Years ago. We were building cricket stadiums or sports stadiums. And giving money away we need to focus on the things that that local government was created to do, and that's provide infrastructure, and we and, you know, public safety and the two things are lacking in the city, just yeah. I was going to say what Tim said. But also, the, you know for anybody that cares about having a more independent voices are more different voices. Diversity in their government would do well to consider libertarian candidates just for the sake of having people who just aren't blindly partisan to sort of a group think that we often see in a lot of, you know, council matters or other municipality races. It's important that people have options for who they vote for. And it's also important that those options can be heard at a city government level. How do they in a potential libertarian mayor universe function with a with a council that will clearly it'd be Republican or democratic because there's not enough. -tarian jet running all the council seats to get a majority. Well, I look at government is being a break. You know, when we're going down the road to the future, the government really can't promote anything they can't create money when you take from somebody and give to somebody else the government's middleman, and that's a break on the economy. So being a break on the city council spending money is actually relish. And I think as they some kind of what we really need right now is break on the things that we don't need. So that we focus on the things that the city does need our guest today are libertarian friends are hanging out in students. Gives me choked up when they stopped by their hanging out in studio today, Doug mcdonagh's, libertarian candidate for mayor of Indianapolis, who's the chairman of the American libertarian party, but also a candidate for the counselors, well, and Tim McGuire. Who was he had of the state libertarian party one of the things gentleman Babu talked about this libertarianism at the local level. It's you know, we talk about where it should city spend its resources in your opinions, and we'll just anybody feel free to jump in. Would you consider to be a? Not good use of taxpayers money. Because when we look at things like economic development, though, the shift is going to change the trends over the past thirty years..

"I asked him a city thinks series going to take over doing. What you do is is hey, Google gonna start running things for you. I mean, we love these tools today these are digital agents, and in fact sales saved my bold prediction for the end. But he's our digital agents. And those digital agents are starting to be deployed in the workplace as well. And it's natural that they should be. It'll be received naturally will. They replace the human that needs to be there to direct. What's gonna go out? I don't believe it. So I mean, we do our research on this. It's essentially position as a firm. It's my position personally that I don't believe it's going to happen. What will happen is the stuff? That's drudgery. The stuff that we'd prefer not to be doing. Anyways. We'll go away the stuff that we're. We just want the convenience of beings. You know, saying, hey, Google add this to my to do list or Google what what's the temperature outside or Siri? Text Michael Brune on going to be late for the podcast. That's the kind of stuff that's really going to start being taken over by. And then it'll calculate for us more complex stuff. Like, hey, you know, a digital assistant. You know, what's going to happen here in this complex, set of engineering circumstances? And then digital system will go off and run the complex modeling software and come back with answer. Instead of me pressing those buttons myself, I can see that happening in relatively soon. So bold predictions are like ask you all at the end of the podcast to think of the future and think about with this issue. We're talking about workforce in recruitment and talent needs. What do you think is going to happen in the near future that maybe not everybody is really thinking yet or appreciating? Yeah. I believe that worked for civility will become the most critical concepts in managing our people. The only constant is change. And now more than ever. It's more accurate say that that the only constant isn't ever accelerating pace of change because it's moving so quickly that when you think about how we're keeping up people have to be agile. They have to be flexible, and really I think the only way that the companies are going to be able to survive in the modern economy is to excel at adapting to those changing markets the changing technologies and the business landscapes that are coming across this requires really tapping into people's in ability for learning and growth and innovation. It's not just about the machines. But it's about how will these organizations absorb that technology and help vet change along jump old prediction, I'm gonna go a little bit on the other side. And I'm gonna say that we've already seen how meant to reality mixed rarely virtuality is and fading different elements and components of what we do in aerospace and defense we've already seen analytics and how analysts can come to the fore receiving early adoption in some places of AI robotic process automation, receive mobility in assuming mobility and most of what we do. I think within the next twelve to twenty four months, you're gonna see digital assistance coming into the workplace both in the front office as well as on the shop floor. Excellent. Well, we have a couple of bold predictions. There will be watching for him. We've come to the end of our time. John schmidt. Jessica Kane, I wanna thank you for joining me, an offering your insight and thank you to the listeners for joining us for check six with Accenture.

"In your host for this edition of our regular podcast on major issues facing the global aerospace and defense sector, I'm joined by John Schmidt, managing director and the global aerospace and defense lead at Accenture, and Jessica Cain, managing director for communication media. And technology. The sector has a people problem either. There are not enough of them to fill the job openings or they don't have the right skills or maybe both. But after so many years of lip service concerns over workforce and talent recruitment seemingly have rocketed to the top of almost everyone's priority list from the president to the CEO's the White House recently released a five-year stem agenda and the aerospace Industries Association is promising to make workforce a key twenty nineteen focus. Both Aviation Week. And Accenture have been tracking the issue for years, including with new reports just recently, Jessica, you all have been looking at the workforce of the future. Can you boil down for us? What are the three or so major concerns? We are seeing developing in the indie industry. Yeah. I'd be happy to while. I liked that you ask for three in there are sort of three areas that that we look at one is the reality of the changing aging workforce. I know that this has been a topic you've heard of in the past. But it it still remains to be a challenge for the Indy. Sectors significantly. The second is the competition for talent really across the enterprise and against the non eighty players. So we look at this and we see still too few stem grads for the demand. According to the statistics that are out there. We also see diversity challenges that continue in the stem space. So too few women are choosing this as a profession and going into these careers, and then also the recruiters have to compete for talent among candidates who have skills highly attractive to Silicon Valley, and that's always going to be a challenge for your sector. The good news is you have seventy nine percent of young professionals that would recommend Andy for that future. Employment and sixty five percent of university engineers are considering a and E for future employment. So there are people that are interested in looking into coming into the space. But again, if you look at those statistics with with Andy having a higher percentage that's about to retire. It's still not enough. And then lastly what we see our is the emergence of technology requiring a different skill set. So it's no news to you that you see digitisation happening across the Andy sector and that debt commercialization of IT across those industries, including indie or going to pose challenges on workforce, Andy specifically has challenges to continue to build those highly complex products that you see. And maintain an enormous level of employment across many, state states and local governments and still provide adequate returns to the shareholders that are driving more digitisation of that workforce. So they still have to adhere to this even though they're putting capital investment in technology. They're going to have to invest in the workforce as well. So the workforce aging I have to tell you that many listeners may be thinking we've heard this before a decade ago. Have we published more than a few commentaries about people warning about the mass exodus so-called silver soon? Nami of baby boomers who are going to leave industry and take all their know-how and talent with them. Now. Of course, the great recession seemed to have put the brakes on that for better for worse. But there was no mass exodus. But suddenly everybody seems to be thinking that once again this could be a concern. Why why are we here talking about this?.
