"New memoir is called small time. A story of my family and the mob. We'll continue our conversation in just a moment. This is fresh air. I'm Jay Williams. If I've learned one thing from my journey to the NBA and beyond, it's that we all have moments in life where our limits are tested. What I want to talk about is how we define those limits and what it means to exceed them. My show is a blueprint for how to do that. From some of the biggest names in sports, business, and culture. Listen to the limits from NPR. We're speaking with Russell's short up, who's written several books of narrative history. His latest focuses on his grandfather, who was an organized crime boss in the industrial city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania in the 40s, 50s and 60s. The book is called small time, a story of my family and the mob. So this organization that your grandfather and his brother in law ran in Johnstown had a great run in the 40s 50s things changed in the 60s and it kind of fell apart. Why? Well, throughout the 50s, of course, there was this growing pressure in American society to for the government to recognize that there was this organized crime syndicate that was all over the country. And until then, during their heyday, they were able to my grandfather and his brother in law were able to operate quite in the open. And I think Kennedy coming into The White House, Bobby Kennedy deciding he's cracking down on the mob and then this inconvenient murder of a bookie in town. All those things happen at the same time. And that brings this new focus. Suddenly all this pressure is being brought to bear. And there's a new mayor and he's kind of got to clean up this town kind of mayor. And that spelled the beginning of the end. That murder suddenly, within a couple of months, city cigar shut down for good. They continued their operation for a long time, but it was on a much lower level. I want to talk just a little bit more about Johnstown, Pennsylvania. You know, I live in Philadelphia. And anybody who is in Pennsylvania when you hear the term Johnstown, you typically think of an event in that city's history, which was a disaster. I mean, essentially, on the scale of 9 11, back in 1889, just tell us that story. The Johnstown flood. Of course, everybody in John stone grows up with the story of the flood..

What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

Those who make over $400,000 a year as well as increasing the tax rate for corporations. No tax policy was a big win, of course for outgoing President Donald Trump in the earlier days of his administration, how much of what was accomplished there a few years ago might be rolled back or eroded away. President Trump was able to lower the corporate tax rate from Around 34% to 21%. President elect Biden is hoping to increase that not to be original level that it was that but to 28% s. Oh, that would be one thing that he would seek to undo a zoo well as undoing what the tax cuts and Jobs act the President Trump's tax cuts package hey, would seek to undo its lowering of the highest tax rate, but that America's wealthiest Americans pay. You would like to increase that Again back to kind of what it was under the Obama era there Realistically, how much of his agenda on taxes? Might we expect biting to be able to push through the new Congress? So that's a great question. You know, he does now have Democrats now have control of the Senate, which is a really big deal for President elect Biden's priorities and four any hope that progressive Domestic agenda really has over the next four years. The people that I've spoken with have said that it's pretty unlikely that he will be able to get even Congress even moderate Democrats to agree, however, too Raised taxes on corporations, especially in the midst of kind of all of the economic calamity that we're seeing right now. So they said, you know, maybe you could get that 21% up to 22 23 24. But even getting it up to that 28% debuted, it's pretty unlikely. What will what is fairly likely to happen is tax cuts and tax credits for the middle classes and really low low wage earners in the United States. So these are things especially targeting families with Children, People with Children, child tax credit, childcare, tax credit things like that. Better popular with both with Democrats and then also, even some Republicans have put forward bipartisan proposals seeking to extend on and make more generous child tax credits. So that is something that President elect Biden would probably find it pretty easy to find allies for in Congress.

Legendary Rock group Eagles unveiling a new album this week title live from the Forum. 26 track release was recorded over three performances in September. 2018 It's the latest part of a soap opera saga dating back 50 years. Eagles first formed in 1971 when the four founding members Don Henley, Glen Fry, Randy Meisner and Bernie Layton came together as a backup band to play for Linda Ronstadt. That year, the group signed with manager David Geffen and agreed to work with his new label Asylum Records. They released their self titled album in June 1972.
