"G and Good morning, everyone. Jon Hansen and for Bob Ceron on this Thursday, New Year's Eve we are getting to it. Almost done with 2020 on 2 2021, Hopefully a brighter and better things. Speaking of bright, the sunrise still about 10 minutes away and again, we're in those few days where we are at our latest sunrise of the year. 7 18. Yes, we had the solstice a little bit ago, but you still lose a little daylight on the front end for a few days after that. And then soon those sunrises will get earlier and earlier. I believe after January 3rd they start going the other way. So we're getting there positive things ahead and let's go to Brenda. We've been doing poems for 2020 or your favorite four words. To sum it all up. Brenda's got a poem and Oak Forest. Good morning, Brenda. Good morning. I wanted to start out by saying that I usually just dread it when a regular host is off and there's a fill in, but you have made this time. A pleasure. So thank you. That's very kind. That's very kind of you. We're all looking forward to Bob come back next Wednesday, though. And I also wanted to say this tone is not a haiku. It's a limerick. Oh, Brenda, I love limericks that that is my go to I am so excited for your Limerick. Okay, And it's kind of spontaneous. So bear with me as long as you don't swear, Brenda, I'm happy with it. I will not swear Okay? This prom is about this week's morning host Jon to thank him for filling in while Dad's gone. With listeners, John interacts. He's very funny, yet also knows his fax. In closing. Let's just say, John, you're the band. Oh, now that's very sweet of you. That was so nice. First of all, I didn't know you were very creative with rate rhyming John because it's not an easy one to do. So. Thank you. On. That's very kind of you to say, But I appreciate that. Thank you. Well, you're doing Thank you. It's pretty easy. I'm I am, but I appreciate it. But that was very nice. I want Brenda Write me a poem. Now I'm going to say she didn't call back for mine. Yes, Brenda, you're back in an hour with a maser gets Wani at nine. And we'll get Bob back in here on next Wednesday, and you'll write him one to know it's been a joy to be able to be able to sit here any time. I can't. It's always a pleasure 31 to 91 7200. You know, I love having fun on this show and the four words a lot of people are taking it in many different directions, which I really appreciate and some of them kind of blow you away and make you pause and realize, uh, Just how much you have. And this this text kind of got me a little bit 630 chimed in. Four words. Bye, Mom. Love you What's just breaks your heart and I know a lot of you have had such a tough year. And yes, we laugh about 2020 ending and we joke about how it'll be better just know that we all are with all of you who are dealing with pain and loss. And that's what kind of here for a W G and I feel like we're We could be a sounding board for that loss on, do we? We? We extend our heartfelt to, uh, thanks for listening, Of course. But most importantly, I feel better. And we wish wish you well. Other ones that are coming on in 7734 words. Toilet paper like gold. Remember that? Did you? Were you? Were you a hoarder of toilet paper and you? You play it. Cool, Cool. Same here. Well, I mean, we got a bit we normally get like an eight pack or something. Or a six pack one of the smaller ones because I just ate walking out with like there's no great way to hold on to 20 toilet paper rolls. I think it's ah One of the standard comedians does a bit that there's no dignified way to carry that around. I will say we got one of the bigger ones in March and again here lately, but Never did the hoarding of it. But yeah, there was that will always remember the joy of toilet paper. A 474 words. Glad to be working. Boy. You said it. You said it. Forwards. Goodbye are good by E think they wrote Don walls, But I mean Dawn Wells, the actress who passed away yesterday. Longtime star of Gilligan's Island, 31. To 91 7200 continue to get those in 20. You're a smart guy s. So I think you might have an answer for me on this question, because I have on Ah, website up about who's celebrating the New year, Wen, right? And you mentioned in your newscast much of Australia ringing in the year at seven o'clock. I have the whole list here and it says it's 7 30. There's a very small region of Australia that rings in the new year. And that's odd to me that someone would do it in a half hour and at 9 15 parts of western Western Australia ring in the new year, meaning they're not all at the top of the hour. They just want to be different. But there are other times there's other ones in the Paula 12 15 there. I look, I know daylight savings messes with people's minds. But can you imagine if you had quarter hours like that would be obnoxious? Well, you know that time zones may have something to do with this. Like a half these like someone like I don't wanna be east. I don't wanna be central. Let's split the difference..

I know a lot of people went overboard on Christmas decorations or did them like Vicky the day after Halloween? But I know a lot of people that were kind of bummed out this year. Maybe they didn't. We're gonna have people over for the holiday. They knew that in advance based on what's going on, so they just didn't decorate. Everyone's got their thing. Six Rios is Merry Christmas, Bob Humbug. Okay, A 15 says less under Christmas tree for a lot of Americans. That is certainly the case. 312981 72 100. Hey, happy Festivus.

So I assumed that well, Obviously, they wrote that into the show Seinfeld Festivus for those you don't know Ah, Festivus for the rest of us a day in which George Costanza's family celebrates with an airing of grievances on the 23rd, the Florida state off the feats of strength. And aluminum pole. Did you know that there is a real festive ist that existed before this? It came from a writer on Seinfeld. He was just his dad meant had made it up. So Dan O'Keefe is a writer on Seinfeld and his father invented it in the sixties. It was a real thing in their family, he would have a secular holiday not burdened by religious or commercialism. Much like we have, according to family folklore. The first one occurred in 1966. It was it was on the occasion of this writer's father's first date with his wife. So they commemorated that date, which was December 23rd every year with this aluminum pole and originally had no set date, But they settled on the 23rd. But he told this story, the Seinfeld writer to the room just kind of casual and they're like we have to find a way to work this into the show. And and so it was. But One of the classic episode. I Love it. Yeah, it's a perfect holiday, because that's first of all, it's simple. The simplicity of the aluminum pole and the happiness and stress relief of the airing of the grievances.

Political Myth Buster

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kid chrome today. i'm gonna bust a few political myths. Some of these myths have been around for a hundred years and some more recent. I the current ask of this writing usage of the term whistle blower. This does not refer to an individual it is in reference to an act the protection individual. That hasn't his or her possession information that may implicate another individual usually not restricted to the president of the united states. In some kind of illegal act. It is the whistle blower protection act of nineteen eighty nine a federal agency violates whistle blower protection act if agency authorities take or threaten to take retaliatory personal action against any employees because of disclosure of information by that employee or applicant long story short or in a nutshell. The whistle blower is not an individual. It is a whistle blower act of one thousand nine hundred eighty nine that protects individual with some kind of planned destined information. Now let's move on our great great political myth. That's been around a long time as a jon. Hansen was the first president. Not george washington. The answer is found by looking back what was happening with the continental congress in and around eight seventeen eighties on november fifth. Seventeen eighty one. Congress elected hanson as president. That would be president of congress. Under the articles of confederation. The united states had no executive branch. The president of congress was mostly ceremonial in position. But the office did require hanson to serve as a neutral discussion moderator handle official correspondence and signed documents. Hanson found. The work tedious considered resigning after just one week citing his poor health and family responsibilities colleagues urged him to remain because congress at that time lacked a quorum to choose a successor out of a sense of duty. Hanson remained in office the maryland assembly re elected him as a delegate on november twenty eight seventeen eighty one and so has continued to serve as president of congress until november. Four seventeen eighty two. He died one year later. Here's another great political myth. The myth is that impeachment remove a president from office. Fact is that impeachment has never removed a precedent. Impeachment is generally speaking a gathering of evidence wants presented this evidences debated one party like a defender ends up questioning the factual aspects of the evidence. And the other party must like a prosecutor attempts to demonstrate the reality of the evidence when a conclusion is reached and articles of impeachment involved determined and only after a long process. Can the president be made to stand trial. Impeachment is the process necessary to send a president to trial in this final myth. I use the current president to make a point of myth is that normal of political behavior are durable and resilient. The political process is shaped by both formal rules like caucus math and electoral college and informal norms candidates participation in debates. But it's easy to forget that these informal norms only matter as long as we all believe in them. This election has been for many who closely follow. Paul takes lesson in. Just how powerful. These unwritten rules of behavior of bennett shaping previous campaigns and just how easily they can be shattered again and again the current president has shown a willingness to violate the accepted norms of campaigning. That candidates followed for decades to name. A few candidates do not explicitly insult each other during debates. If violence breaks out at candidates rallied to candidate will not condone that violence. Candidates do not directly criticize former presidents for their own political parties. And so on by violating those norms often. With very little consequence current president has demonstrated how fragile those norms really are and all presidents. How fractured certain norms and changed the way we look at the presidency and debates now is broken down several political miss in the simplest way and hope that through critical thinking and deductive reasoning. You can spot and resolve political myths on your own. Here are two tips for spotty myths. I question all political view. Sit agree with yours second. Don't believe everything you think

"Jon Hansen in for Bob's throughout on this Friday morning, 7 40 on 7 20. Thank you so much for listening. We certainly appreciate it. The sun is up hidden behind some clouds Look out to east from the 18th floor here. And a three or three East Wacker. Thank you so much for spending part of your day with us. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving whether it was done virtually or small group gathering. It seems like the reports were. Most people are no matter how you celebrate. It seems like there was plenty of food to be had and plenty of leftovers. I still can't get over the fact that Steve's wife, who we've now learned is her nickname is saucy rings a bell or ring a bell for Steve to wake him up and let him know that Thanksgiving meal was prepared. On, by the way, Steve Rogers. I don't know if you're think he's working on something else right now, but I don't know He's been covering the story of the Utah monolith. The giant piece of well I don't know what it is, but it looks like this silver reflective. Giant structure that was discovered by people checking up on sheep in Utah from a helicopter. They went down and discovered. I don't know if you've seen this story, but it's pretty incredible people thinking that maybe it's aliens planted that they're not exactly sure, maybe a piece of artwork But the Internet sleuth seemed to have figured out exactly what it is so again. This came from Smithsonian magazine in the Utah Desert. This giant metal it's about 15 ft. Tall, just this silver's reflective structure set up and it looks like that the Internet speculation has led to believe that it's actually left over. Pieces of work from film crews that are in the area. So read it dove into it, and they looked at old Google Earth images, satellite images going years and years back, and they found out this big monolith was put there sometime in the year. 2015 or 2016, And apparently, this area is ah, well done, and a lot of the movies that they do a lot of the films they film there. And Westworld was filmed right nearby this monolith over the past couple years and they think that it's a leftover piece of a set, but no one can seem filed to find in West world where it is. I don't know if you've been following this monolith story, Jordan the big structure in the Utah desert that people think aliens left. I have not whole story. But I wonder if one of these dolls might be talking. You're gonna pivot goes back to something. Steven, you've been covering this thing. No, this is crazy Smile reading about it. Yeah, some people. It almost looks like the top. Someone had a mim on online that it looks like the top of a globe like that's where the point up is where it rotates around that, um Cause it is just a kind of looks like what's in this 2001 space? Yeah, that's what I was going to say. But are you gonna tell people what they think It is a piece of set from Westworld left over which it kind of looks like it. But although I've seen I've seen all the episodes of Westworld, do we have a comparison to some pieces said that about that, too. I don't remember anything like that in West world right and the focus of the Utah Um Canyonlands National Park officials say they don't think it's a movie set leftover piece of what would it be? Because apparently, several other movies were shot in the area to Yeah, they filmed Indiana Jones and the last crusade Now, that would be 1989. So I doubt they left it over for that long. Thelma and Louise 127 hours, those all film there, but I can't picture a monolith in any of those films. It's really bizarre aliens. Yeah, let's just go with aliens. Okay? I mean, it's 2020. So that's a lot more exciting. It is. Yeah, although the doll theories also pretty good. Could be like stranger things too. You know, maybe that's where the upside down is located. Oh, I see what you're saying. There is this like It is. The crevice of the canyon is is right in line with the monolith. So some people thought maybe it was an artwork installation that would do it. I mean, who's dragging a giant monolith? Like I mean, artists I know like to have their work scene, right and and appreciated. I don't think you're dragging a monolith through the Utah desert to set up a czar work. No one's gonna see that hard work And I mean, this is very remote. Yes, they said, if you go to look at it, you may never come back. Yeah, I bet. Well, now everyone's going and they're posting photos because they found out where the coordinates were. But it's got to be an arduous journey. It's a little bit like Stonehenge, right? Exactly. Dragon. They have no idea how they transported all that rock there. It was a giant spaceship 200 million years ago. Dropping a marker Earth. Yeah. Are you in aliens, guys? TV, but you believe in it. Have done a little reading. I don't know if I believe it or not. Okay. All right. I've done a little reading. There's always a scary place to start with conspiracy theories, especially bits on the Internet. Let's get some hard news, though. The weather today we'll see the sun eventually, right, we will, but it's boy. It's taken awhile if At least where we are downtown is pretty bleak..

Hello, Kathy. Hi. How are you doing? Oh, pretty good. I was just thinking about my first job, and it was at the Carson downtown. On ST Medicine, and I was I did not have a glamorous job there. I was working at the employee's cafeteria and I had a way of hair Net and the white Like cope thing, and it was really It was especially embarrassing because there were a lot of Heikal girls who I don't know how they got the job, but They were modeling in the paint department. There little plaid skirts and matching garland letters and so they would come into the employee's cafeteria. All cute. Pretty and there. I was in my care now, and it was, But the saving grace was the little lady that worked there will let me have the Carson period. Got Heather Health pie every day on. It wasn't something that if you worked in the employee cafeteria, you weren't supposed to have it. You can eat anything else, but not that because that service that was served in the fancy restaurant, But I got to have it because they would make me a piece a graham cracker crust with ice cream on top. And a Marine top that was covered in a hot buttered rum syrup. Imagine eating that every single day on Lee with on Lee when you're six piece Yes, yes, That's what you could do it by the time you're 25 or so that starts to add up. So you were 16 years old when you had that job. How long did you have it? I had two summers. Yeah, but it was up. I made I remember my very first paycheck. I bought some clerk sandals that cost me an arm and a leg. Stevens, the big, more expensive store. It was like down the block and I wore them until they couldn't be worn anymore. There were there were $60, which at that time was like over the top. Yeah. Well, I loved those candles and you know they would still be in style could ask. There you go. There you go. Kathy Riverside, The Carson's alright Did you end up using any of those skills in your in your career that you moved on after that? No, except to know to know that I could kind of get through any humiliation of reading pie every day. You could do anything there. Ugo Cathy. I appreciate the phone call. I hope you're enjoying a great labor day. Okay? I'm trying to last swim in our pool season. At least we got to do with this here. My apartment's at 10 am All right. Well, you better get over there.

Hey, I hope I don't get you guys hungry because I got another put story My first job. Goes back to a long time ago. Well, just say it that way, and I worked at a frozen custard stand went back when they were all the homemade kind of custard out of machine. Dairy queen wasn't even invested event. Oh, you're OK, so we're going back a bit. Oh, we're going back to my first day and I was making a dollar an hour and I had free lunch. Hey, was it just just get custard for lunch or what? They had hot dogs like that, too. But I value is part of the fun part of the story. And I tell everybody in great just when I say it, But, yes, I made a dollar an hour. And a free lunch and after three weeks of working there during that summer Manager and boss came up to me and said, Listen. I'm gonna give you a 10 Cent an hour raise, but you can't eat that much anymore. I was making myself what they called a hot budge marshmallows Sunday, Okay? And now I'll tell you how old I am. But this was back in 1966. Okay. Custard cost 40. Wow. So their biggest sundae with a spike that Oh, my goodness. Yes, you had that almost every day. That's incredible. Frank. We lost you there, but a great story along the way is to 3.2981 72 100 Year first job. I told the story and Friday that my real first job was as a baseball umpire. Which of the age of 12 or 13 years old is a real quick lesson into how terrible most adults really are in the world. A cz there screaming at other chill. I mean, I I get that your kid is the next Ah, you say me. So, sir, whatever the case may be, But there's no sense in yelling at another child, another 13 year old who is just trying to regulate what is happening on the baseball field, and I definitely had to throw a couple of coaches out of games in my day. In fact, This is kind of embarrassing. I was out in Downers Grove and often umpired. What's the name of that park? Door Hoffer door Hoffer Park near Downers Grove. And you know, there was just a day were because you'd empire a few games in a row right in the summer heat, But we have the really strict policy about any storms that would pass on through whether it was ah, rainstorm or lightning. But if we even heard thunder, we were allowed to delay the game. 30 minutes and I must have seen just one cloud off in the distance and I was so sick. Of the parents that were screaming at me all game long that I just said. Well, that was some thunder delayed the game. 30 minutes, eventually called the whole thing. I think a storm eventually came on through. But the point is do not mess with appears there. Their kids like everyone else. Let's go to Daniel Daniel. You're on. W G N Good morning. Well, my first job. My dad was a psychoanalyst, and I had two summers in a row. I had a job at the psychiatric in Sex America Psychiatric Institute at Michael Reese is a nurse's aide. Wow. Yes.

"Jon Hansen in For Bob Surat. I've officially gone down the Internet Rabbit hole, which is a dangerous place to be talking about Taco Bell getting rid of the pizza. Everyone up in arms about that. Come to an article about the 19 discontinued fast food items We wish would return McDonald's mixed salad shakers. Remember those you'd pour everything in they have some of the things in there, you'd pour the dressing in and you shake it around. Yeah, I'm okay with that being gone. Apparently, that's gone. Burger King apparently had Cindy Minis. Morning Cinnabon sort of thing. They were discontinued. Here's something interesting. Wendy's had a chicken Caesar pita. Yeah, there was that time where all the fast food places became super health conscious. I think they moved the needle. A little too far. But I can't imagine going a Wendy's and asking for a chicken Caesar Peeta, you know, but they had a good like grilled chicken sandwich. It Wendy's for awhile, and Yeah, they still I don't know either. I've heard that was good, too. Yeah. I just every time. You know, I have all the best intentions as I'm driving up to that window, right? And I'm looking at that menu. Got a grilled chicken looks pretty good. I just can't get the words out of my mouth. What do you want? Crispy? Yeah, I do. I can't do it in a frosty. Yeah, and you know, Well, I'm here supersize. It are large and let's make it two of those KFC chicken Littles. They are currently available on the menu, but it's been back and forth. The O G version from the eighties was really gonna pickle bun small chicken little, You know, The interesting thing is that I sometimes we'll just order because I'm like, I don't want to get a double cheeseburger. I'll disorder a single And I end up getting to him anyways. And what have I done? I mean, I've really gone really gone too far. At that point, Jack in the box had cheesy macaroni bites. Pizza Hut had a taco pizza. Wait, hold on. Taco Bell had a Mexican pizza and Pizza Hut had a taco pizza. These two franchise need to get together and figure this out. Meet somewhere in the middle, because clearly there's a demand here for some sort of Mexican pizza. So a pizza hut got rid of their taco pizza. Taco Bell got rid of their Mexican pizza. These two franchises need to really iron this out. Apparently there was something called an Arch deluxe at McDonald's or heard of that. I do remember that Georgia, said George Costanza. Jason Alexander was in a commercial for McDonald's about how they used to separate the burger into separate pieces. They keep the lettuce on on the cool side. They said They had hot on the hot side. Cool on the cool. You gotta look this up. Curtis. Look up Jason Alexander McDonald's commercial. He was singing and dancing something about you having the hot on the hot side. The cool, I don't know. I don't remember, but it's discontinued. Burger King apparently had some ribs at some point. Missed out on that to Wendy's had a coffee toffee twisted frosty. That's a mouthful. Taco Bell apparently also had a spicy chicken burrito. No longer on the menu. Sonic don't know. I think there's one Sonic in the Chicago immediate Chicago Land area. Other French toaster breakfast sandwich. Tell you that looks good. Donald's had onion nuggets at one point, but those have also bit the dust are be sour dough melts no longer there as well. KFC is doubled down sandwich and the list goes on and on of different things. That I'm no longer their Curtis. You got that commercial for us. You're gonna play this. You getting tired.

"Jon Hansen and for John Williams were time with Jimmy Butler situation last night and I just any other sport Dave, innit? When you make so that in case you're just joining us No time on the clock. Jimmy Butler's followed allegedly, I guess said that wasn't even that's that's the whole thing could do another two hours of that which we won't so he goes to the free throw line zero on the clock. They've confirmed zero on the clock here. There's no more game. Beyond this. He rattles in and out, probably hits all side of the rim but sinks the free throw. So at that point, Miami has won by a point. And then there's no climax. No one rushes on the court for a socially distant celebration. There's no fun. It was both the most climactic and the most anti climactic moment in sports because they make Jimmy Butler shoot a second one Because David in baseball, you hit a home run for a walk off. You don't you don't finish the inning in football, which is the most comparison Aiken in overtime. You score six points on a touchdown. You don't get the extra point, but but I have seen situations. Where in, say, in regular season games where they have had a team kick the extra point where teams have gone off the field. They brought him back to kick the extra point. Maybe that's the end of the fourth quarter. Theyve done that because it's it could be a tie breaker in terms of playoff positioning Point differential, right, And that's your thing so it can Come in to play. Here's the other thing would legalize sports gambling now so widespread suddenly that extra water that that I I'm not sure what the line was gave last night. Imagine, if is 1.5 times. You've got to make sure that everything is buttoned up. Yeah, we got a text from the 773. I would have done a Michael Jordan close my eyes at the line for that one. A better chance to try it at a text also wondering and day maybe you can answer this. I imagine we all know it. But with the sports book that you mentioned maybe opening up near Wrigley. Someone was wondering if players Khun Bet I imagine they're still very strict. No, I I'm pretty sure that you will not be able to. Ah, walk into this port spoke before a game. And lay down. Yes, I don't think any of those rules are changing. We don't have to worry about baseball is still pretty pretty secure on that route Changing. Who was that metsmanager years ago.

That was that was something else. 31 to 91 7200 love for you to join the conversation in a pivot Quite a bit, too. I think the funniest thing I saw yesterday coming out of Nebraska, Dave, you know these City council meetings in small towns. This was in Lincoln, which isn't a particularly small town. But you know, you get some really interesting commentary. From the locals who have a thought on a certain matter, and it's only gonna up exponentially. The craziness since we have debates about masks, Cove and all that sort of stuff. Well, one man decided to take the podium and talk about something really important to her Children are catching, throwing around names and words. Without even understanding their true meaning, and treating things is as though they're normal.

"Jon Hansen here in for an ID of lactase on this Monday afternoon. Thanks so much for joining us, Mr Bertrand at the top of the hour telling us our heat indices above 100 in the area. Certainly one of those days you step out the door. You feel it right away. So if you're inside in the air condition and hope you're enjoying it. 31 to 91. 7200 talkingabout the Phase four opening officially last Friday across the state. Did you go out? Did you enjoy? What did you see what you do, or did you decide? I'm not quite ready. Let's hear from Carrie. Carrie, you're on wg. And were you quite ready? Tto head on out and venture outside. Hi, John. Thank you taking my call. No, I did not venture out. But I had some friends who did go out and sent me some pictures. Ah, from the cubby Bear where where people were shoulder to shoulder. It was packed. And no one had masks. They said. There was a line that extended all the way out. And and it was it was bad behaviour was pretty bad. I know that in the city there's supposed to be a what 25% capacity inside. Now, I've been in the cubby bear at full capacity, so even 25% seems like a lot of people. But again, you know, I don't think we have people going around monitoring every single place. I think a lot of places are trying to make up in business. So I don't want to speculate. Don't know what they've told their doorman or what it is, but I agree. I was walking up and down, Clark and I was just kind of doing a head count. And I'm like that. That seems like a lot more So as someone who didn't go out. Does that make you do judge your friends? Who did it? Or is it? Hey, they do their thing. I do my thing. I kind of do because they're my friends, and I would think that they would be more more responsible. I would hope you know, I chose that go out. Look at the pictures. I was glad I didn't. But I was hoping that people are a little more a little smarter than then. They're looking like they are carry You wear a mask when you go on about Yes, I do Any problem with that No issues. No, I don't have issues. I mean it. I'm outdoors number ways with people. I don't have it on. But I'm ready to put it on. If I'm if I'm going because somebody if I have to go indoors, I'm just ready. Just just need to be ready and I'll take care of yourself. And everything will be okay. I think, Carrie, thanks for the phone call. Appreciate it. OK, thank you. That's kind of how I feel, too. I don't always wanna walk. I just I have a little bandanna, and I've got a few of them because I know that we want you know, we wash him every couple days. And when I go on a walk, I have it. And then if I'm gonna pass the one on the sidewalk or if they've got kids and strollers walk into the grass a little bit, But I'll still put the bandanna that takes two seconds. I just don't get it, but I know a lot of you don't like him, And maybe it's the inconvenience or the change or being told you have to. Maybe that's the angle 31 to 91. 7200. You go on about this weekend. What you see on phase for six, Rio says the gym is opening up, and I never trusted it to be clean before Cove, And I think it's a good excuse not to go. Hey, whatever excuse you need to rile up to find a way not to go to the gym. I played that game before I tell you. I'm at my most productive in the house. When a workout is next, I get my workout clothes on again. My socks. I get my shoes. And then it's like you know what I do need to clean that countertop. That's a little dirty. Hold on. I'll do that. You know that microwave is just a little messages really quickly. Before I go to the gym for ego run, I'll spray that up. Their garbage needs to be taken out. I even have a dog. But I say maybe we'll take the dog for a walk around. Let's go to Gail. Gail. You're on w g. N. Would you see this weekend? Hi. We saw a lot of people out. Ah, couple places nobody cared about wearing a mask. Everybody with 70 good time We went out to dinner on Friday afternoon. And a little places. Cook that we always go to the pub. Okay, Cool. Inside or outside. We were inside and where you were. Did you wear a mask or now? No judgment. I didn't. We did not wear a mask, the only one wearing masks for the server. And then we went out Saturday afternoon to our little neighborhood bar and with her on your map, but the owner did ask that everyone bring one So everyone had them on the wrist. Then we had a good game. Kill. You sound like a fun person. I like you already. I feel like I could have a beer with you. Did you ever would you consider wearing a mask? Or would that be like no deal for going out in two places. Oh, no. I do wear a mask when different retailers say that you have to have one to come in. So I'm not gonna have them Then you get into a fight over a little thing like a mad But when I don't have to wear when I choose not to wear one of them can not wear one. I don't know. Sergeant, You have fun where you're nervous, or, you know, you know, and we're 64 72. So we're in that age range where were supposedly jeopardizing our health like going out. That with all the lessons we you do what you have to do to keep well, And if you don't now you always didn't. So we'll just continue to do what we've been doing. And now Every weekend will be out. All right, get well, We appreciate your phone call. That's Gail's take on that. Not wearing a mask. You did say she does when it's required which I appreciated the grocery store, and I guess he's private establishments have their own rights to what they want to Dio. Gale, of course, taking her own health into consideration. I would, you know, add that sometimes you can get it and spread it without even knowing there. You ever had it Someone that maybe didn't expect that, But I do appreciate the honesty. This is a judgment mostly free zone at least here on this chair. I'll question you about it. I'll ask you about it. But you know you have your rights to do what you need to do. 31 to 91. 7200. Did you go out? Did you? Not? Ah, 312 says the best thing about these masks. If you are just hanging around your ears, it's wonderful of hiding a double chin. OK? Yeah, that's gained a couple pounds in quarantine and you got a mask on and maybe you could take it off for a moment for Whatever reason, and you drop it to the chin. I also want to mention you know, Gail mentioned the Jew didn't wear the mask inside. In Chicago. I believe the rules because we went out last Tuesday..

the time you're sitting there and you add them all up and imagine it's more than that living in a more a busy place but they say that while driving can be fun and liberating the national association of city transportation officials says that the average time spent waiting at a red light is seventy five seconds accounting for all for twenty percent of driving time and when you add it all up that

"Everybody Emily Kwong here. Filling in for Mattie WHO's out training for thumb were competition today our story comes from NPR correspondent. Alison opry the. Hey there emily. Hey Alison so what you got for us. Well why don't we start with a pop quiz. What do you say? I thrive in. Quick pressure. Go on do you know how much of the food supply in the. US never makes it to our mouths. Ten percent thirty two Orley percents. Thirty to forty percents is the estimate in fact folks at the. USDA the US Department of Agriculture estimate that you could fill the Willis Tower in Chicago goes big skyscraper every year forty four times the amount of food that goes to waste that is staggering. Food waste is this huge problem and on top hopping being a massive waste when food ends up in a landfill. It rots and a lot of methane is released and methane is a greenhouse gas which is a huge contributor attributed. Climate jets right. It traps heat in the atmosphere and methane is over twenty times more potent than carbon dioxide in terms of its warming the impact in fact a recent report from the United Nations found that up to ten percent of all human made greenhouse gas emissions are actually linked to food waste. I humans we're just we're just the worst you know but we're also kind of good at coming up with solutions for Demar species. Okay sure well to solve this problem. Some farmers farmers and Massachusetts are taking all of that methane making food waste and turning it into energy actually making electricity to power nearly fifteen hundred here at homes. Wow that's pretty amazing. And to make that energy these farmers or combining that food waste with something else that can be a big source of methane especially on big big farms. I'll give you a hint. It stinks Oh cow poop. That's right and it's stored in these big pits and cow. POOP can release a a lot of methane as well. So you're saying that farmers have found a way to take to methane sources food waste and manure and turn it into energy. That's right to methane source is is one stone so today on the show we had to Massachusetts to get a closer look at how some dairy farmers are turning tons of cow. POOP and truckloads food waste into Green Energy Alison. I suspect this is going to get messy but I was thinking more like two parallel line from our colleague. Dan Charles. We're GONNA get a whiff of the future. Okay Allison before we get into how these farmers are doing this a host talk about. Why is it just about methane and the environment? Well I mean. I'm sure a lot of farmers do care about the environment but really times are tough for dairy farmers is out there. I mean many farmers are looking for ways to diversify their incomes. They've gotten very efficient at doing what they do. Producing milk perhaps to efficient. And that makes it tough have to be in business so my name is Peter Melnick and I'm a fourth generation dairy farmer in Deerfield Massachusetts. I visited Peter's farm late last year. He's one of a handful of farmers in Massachusetts converting wasted food and manure into electricity. He has essentially turned part of his family farm. Fire into this mini power plant. Well and he says they're saving about one hundred thousand dollars a year by producing energy a hundred thousand dollars a year. That's huge savings. Yeah Okay so how. How does this waste to energy process actually work so a key piece of equipment on the MELNYK farm? Is this ANAEROBIC digesters. adjuster fun name. What is an ANAEROBIC digesters? So it was basically a big sealed tank and when the food waste in the manure are put into the tank and heated. All all of this biomass is broken down. By the little organisms the bacteria and a methane bio gas is produced from this big mixture. That's right and and the digest that he has on his arm has a tank that can hold about a million gallon of what is basically a big organic waste Brownie. Yes and then as methane is released it rises to the top of a bubble shaped dome recapture the gas in that bubble and then we suck it into a generator. It's about the size of your car. And that engine run on methane instead of diesel or gasoline and that in turn is turning big generator which is then creating one megawatt. The water is one mega law a lot of electricity. Well to put this in context. This operation power is not only his farm in his home but a lot more. We only use about ten percent of what we make in the rescue. It's fed onto the grid and it's almost enough to do fifteen hundred homes. That is a huge output. Oh put energy fifteen hundred homes and you mentioned that Peter is mixing food waste in with the manure. Why is he adding food? Waste too well the more you add to the digested the more volume you have. The more electricity can make so that manure may not produce enough to make the economics of the digestive system work out you need scale right. So Peters not not only using this manure he's also processing millions of pounds of food waste from across the Boston area food that is spoiled or surplus also a lot of waste products from food production facilities around the state traditionally all this would end up in a landfill but instead it is to his farm we presently take in about a hundred hundred ton which is about three tractor trailer loads every day. WHOA that is a huge amount of food waste? I watched it. It's amazing I mean these trucks and and it's just piped in to this big hit where then ends up in the digest. Her gets waste from the local creamery. Waste from a local brewery rury local juice plant and then another big source for him is waste from whole foods. The grocery chain seventeen of their stores in Massachusetts participate dissipate There's a woman at whole foods Karen Franchet. She showed us how it all works. We do have items that we can't sal either because they're spoiled vitamins. That are bruised that we might not be able to sell so what she showed us when we visited. Is this big industrial Masher. This was at the whole foods roots in Shrewsbury Massachusetts. It basically gobbles up everything that would be wasted and you can imagine. There's everything from bones. We put fish in there. Um Vegetables You can have dry items like rice or grains so it really becomes kind of a liquefied food ways liquefied show. Yeah Okay and what happens next. Wow so the slurry is loaded into the tank of a truck. It heads to Peter's farm and then it goes right into the digest or anything anything that ends up going to landfill or incineration costs us more money. That is the most expensive way to get rid of waste on our source so this is cheaper for whole foods. That's right it is and also I should point out in Massachusetts. Grocery stores and food producers aren't allowed to send this organic waste to landfills anymore. The estate passed a law back in two thousand fourteen that restricts this it applies to all businesses the generate over a ton of organic. Waste a week. Wow so there's incentive for supermarkets like foods to participate in something like that exactly. Okay let's go back to our farm for a minute. Can any farmer get in on this. Like how did Peter get his digest her. Well here's how it works. The digesters are built and run by a company called Vanguard Renewables Vanguard pays farmers a fee for the use of their land and and also gives them free electricity to power their farms and houses. Right now there are five digesters spread out across the state the CEO. Oh of Vanguard Renewables Jon Hansen says he hopes that this whole operation expands. There's more than enough food waste in Massachusetts to feed all of our I five digesters plus many more allison. Do you get the sense that this is something that can be realistically expanded. You know I think it really depends on the right mix of policies as an incentives. That's what Massachusetts put in place. They passed the commercial food material disposal band. They had a series of grants. I mean this is a new approach so I think we'd have have to look to see. Would we have some kind of federal policy or other state policies to promote this handsome and told me he's really inspired by what's happened in Europe where he says there's more than seventeen eight thousand digesters so we saw what was happening in Europe where anaerobic digestion is extremely widespread across the United States. We don't have that incentive incentive program. We don't have the federal energy policy or any federal benefits. Fran rubel digestion. We are at the cusp. We're at the early days. We've finally got the economics onyx to work. And when I spoke to Peter Melnick about this the farmer he says he really agrees as the price of milk has really been flat. The digesters for is just been A home run for us in that sense. It's made us more sustainable environmentally but also economically as well Alison thank you so much for taking us to Massachusetts where this kind of amazing chain of suppliers and energy makers exists now. I know where to send all my extra cow manure and food waste. Oh my pleasure. It was really a great story to report.

"Jon Hansen in for John Williams everyone on this Tuesday afternoon two oh seven thank you so much for joining us Steve thank you very much for the news and more with the travel around with the traffic skews me an elephant in the producer who is being paid to be here thank you thanks for showing up thanks for not phone it in it gave me a full seven minutes of news Lauren with the complete traffic reports this is on the street we don't we don't cut we don't cut corners here no all he's actually reporting from his house right now just call in and he's literally phoning it in I'm just kidding I'm looking over the phone they're on the camera okay great transition over to topic you know I've I've been faster I'm a history buff I love all things history and I find it fascinating even to dive into that so horrific topics topics of war I think that sometimes we get our most interesting and that global changes and certainly the war on terrorism and terrorism in general is certainly a hot topic whether we're talking about domestic terrorism or international terrorism and I want to have a chat with a professor from my alma mater the university of Illinois professor John Lynn joins us right now thanks so much for joining us here today my pleasure I can ask you first and foremost house Greg hold on we always doing pretty well except that it right street is so torn up you can hardly get around campus and literally the roof the whole street out it'll be ready by the time the students show up in a few weeks pretty much unless they say I was down there in March to speak to some students of the the college radio station there WPG you where I worked for some time as a student and as young adults babysitter I guess I called myself and I I yeah I saw right through was really ripped up during the time for those of you that don't know I've never been out of the campus that is kind of one of the main arteries just off the quadrant of the university of Illinois one of the here to chat about your book another kind of war the nature and history of terrorism before we get into the book a professor Lynn how did you get into this sort of history the history of war in a military historian for a very long time for decades and when nine eleven struck my feeling was what what do I know what had I learned what one a sensitive for want of a better word to what connections could I see from my experience as a military historian to do with terrorism and in fact the whole nature of the of the book another kind of war is to argue to terrorism really is another kind of war and or at least the radicals upstate group kind of terrorism and I actually called an entry level for war it's the first step using violence in your political dialogue when you say it's it's just another kind of war it's interesting because I think that you know I did see you mentioned nine eleven I was not to date myself either direction but I was a high school senior and so on September eleventh I will never forget we were in I was in a P. history on September tenth on the Monday and I was reading about Sam as they will Huntington a famous professor and I was reading about the clash of civilizations future wars would be fought between tribal sort of entities as opposed to nation states and I didn't quite sink in and then of course the next day happened and well of course that had been brewing for a long time before nine eleven of course for the attack on the USS Cole in the trade center many years before that it sort of made a lot more sense to me is a senior high school I find it interesting that you considered another kind of war because I think that the language that we use often times we talk about terrorism aren't that all the rules are different everything has changed it's not the sort of wars that we've had in the past so would you is your argument that your discussion really based on the idea that this is just the newest phase of of of wars that were fought to end in different ways but a long sort of similar the motivations first of all yes a of the notion of a clash of civilization you realize radical Islamists use that language themselves and knowing that it is Samuel hundred teams idea and in fact they believe radical Islam is the kind who carry bombs and few people they believe there is a western war against Islam and that morally requires them to engage in a war to defend Islam which we call to hide now you have to recognize is that they're all within a week we already have different levels of warfare now a days since World War two we have we have the possibility hopefully not the reality of a nuclear war we have conventional warfare we have insurgencies now and in fact there's a new discussion of worker for a high reward for in which you're going to be dealing with with cyber war criminality terrorism insurgency in conventional war all at the same time so we do believe that there are different levels of warfare if you look back at mount St on the great the leader of China in the thirties and forties eventually Turman miles is it the way you achieve your political goals as revolutionaries was to begin as a realist then you moved up to what he calls mobile war for which is a combination of a lot more regular style units plus grows and then eventually the conventional war that was influential away look to terrorism because tough what's happened is terrorism has become the level the local insurgency and it too is a first entry point into a violent struggle which then can be involved with the two other levels so I do see it as a kind of war I realize that when we think of war we normally sort of trying to think of a situation in which arms people fight arms people it's not the defense to civilian who's being a soft target for for terrorist but you know he held the the warfare is always involved attacks on civilians and am quite consciously owls perhaps in range some of your here listeners here but the responding sensibly in World War two was quite consciously conceived of as a terror campaign and in fact Arthur Harris who's the barman literally use those those little bad language to win the British are bonded German cities the civilian yes.

"Miles. As per hour. I'm Eric wrong in the WGN newsroom. Ready to join the conversation live whenever a story changes on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN thinking big thoughts. So you don't have to. Here's John Williams. Twenty WGN Jon Hansen for John Williams on this Monday afternoon. How was your commutes? Boy, I was waiting for that. In it the timing right on that one. I am using John's normal intro here, you how was your commute. Hopefully, it was better than mine. Little long drive into work. I think a lot of people had to was talking earlier whether we are softer now than we used to be or whether we're just smarter someone said to feed the Scindia hot chocolate down to the garbage workers. If you see him on the streets. So what's about the Portillo's workers are outside keeping the hotdogs flowing? So help them out to maybe get them a chocolate cake, shake or something warmer than that. As they drive on in and help you out with your Portillo's another person texted on in reminding folks, please remind people to wash and clean the top of their cars during the snowstorm. So that when they hit the highway or the interstate is not flowing everywhere, contributing to the mess. Yeah. That's annoying. Although I got to admit I have never it took me a long time. And so I started doing that. Because I used to just be that guy blow off the top of my car. But I almost got an accident once when the person in front of me, pretty much blinded me, and I. Thought. Well, you know, I'm usually the guy that's in front of me. So I started wiping down the snow on top of my car. So please do that if you parking outside do that one, man. I know that always cleans the top of his car, if it gets covered in snow is Tom appel automative automotive expert and publisher of consumer guide automotive, Tom. You you always wipe the cop of the car off. Right. I did. So this morning. It seemed necessary. I appreciate you joining me here. And obviously, we could talk about the snow and everything, but I really wanted to jump in and ask you one simple question when it is twenty four degrees below zero on Wednesday morning is my car going to start. Good question. And the answer is maybe not cars a little bit better at tolerating extreme temperatures. When people are but not a whole lot better. And that's some serious cold and your tar may not behave as you as you normally expected to. Yeah. And it's out on the street all night. I don't have a garage to park it in. I think a lot of people listening are in similar circumstances. Is there anything we can do to help that thing? Get going Wednesday morning at this point. There isn't a lot. You can do if you could token doors that good if you can talk in a garage, even if it's not heated that helps if for some reason you've been thinking you really wanted to get a new car battery, and you can actually get an appointment to get one. Now. That's a great idea. But but yeah, if you're outside there's a whole lot you can do right now to ensure it's going to start. I guess I got lucky that my car died a couple of times over the last few months from leaving my hazards on at work, or whatever I was doing. So I actually did just get a battery last week a brand new one. So hopefully. That'll help me out. But it's not only the battery people need to be worried about right? Yeah. Yeah. There's a bunch of stuff that happens to your car in this weather, and what sorts of things I mean, we got we did about the fluids too. Right. Yeah. Yeah. What are you talking about this kind of cold, and it's going to be dropping like thirty degrees in two days? You know metal starts to contract fluid starts to freeze oil thickens rubber gasket gets gas could start to harden your battery capacities. We should severely diminished in your tire inflation starts to to lower. So if you can is it a matter of like go into the jiffy lube or the auto zone or take your pick of what you're doing. And just having them kind of run a diagnostics on what's going on. You know, if you need it in oil change, and you can sneak one and before then you go to a place where they take care of all the things I just mentioned where they check the oil. They check the fluids stuff like that. That's a great thing to do now because that will help there's a couple of things just can't do anything about like what your tire pressure is going to drop. It isn't really. That practical to go and check your air pressure right now. And then check it again two days later when the temperature comes back thirty degrees. But know that your car is going to be haven feel a little bit different wallets extremely cold. Are there? Certain cars do better in this stuff than others. It doesn't matter. You got an SUV a little caller older newer. We all kind of in the same boat. I think we're all in the same boat. All cars Cadillac, the same temperature range, and there's not a whole lot. We can do about that. There's got to be like a minimum, right? I mean, we can't we these vehicles have to have a point in which they're not able to turn on. Yeah. There's a lot of things. I mean vehicles work well in places like Anchorage, Alaska and other extreme cold locations. But they're usually garaged and that helps a lot because if you can start the car Inci, it'll do very well outside. But, unfortunately, if you park your car outside, I tend to tend to stirred balking at fifteen twenty below. What do you mean by bulking? Things your car's gonna do when you get into your car that morning. He started from calling. It does happen to start. It's gonna ride rougher than usual because the springs and shocks, and and structure told here squeaks and rattles. You've never heard before the gaskets swollen contracted. And you're probably not going to get heat for a while. Because your engines first priority is to heat the engine and to make sure all the systems are working. So you're probably not going to get heat for a little while which means it's going to be hard to defrost your windshield. Yeah. For sure grow did this washer fluid, even work at this temperature. It should usually depends on the brand new by or if you're buying a good brand or you just buying the pink started at the gas station 'cause you're there, but it's usually set up to work at forty below. But there's a problem with that. If it's been in your car for a while the alcohol itself starts to evaporate, and what's left is water and wider likes to freeze. So when you can do is try to use that stuff up now and replace it with new fresh stuff anyone that anyone's gotta worry any what they got electric or hybrid is that make a difference. Good question and actually Electric's will experience severely diminished range by as much as I served even forty percent. Wow. Hybrids will just experience reduced hybrid operation because the battery itself isn't doing as much work as it could be doing to your fuel economy will drop with a hybrid below which are used to. But it will work just fine seven hundred has a question. But it also leads into something that I might do. So, you know, I get home from work because I work early early in the morning, noon, one two o'clock, then I usually don't use my car for the next twelve fourteen hours. If I go out like before I go to bed and let it run for like ten or fifteen minutes is that gonna help like should I run it a couple of times for the overnight hours? Does that do anything? Yes. It does it actually vitamin loyalists would probably sneer at that idea. But in extreme cold temperatures as it's getting cold. If you go out start your car and let it run for five or ten minutes that will charge the battery a warm up the battery to warm up the fluids. It's not a bad idea. It's a bit. It's a hassle, but it's it's a hassle. It's probably worth I need my car to start at three AM on Wednesday morning. I don't care what sort of hassle. Does. I'm going out there and do that get back in the day. My dad would always run the car for like fifteen. Eighteen minutes. I mean, he wouldn't like move it into reverse. 'cause he said that the cold weather you deal at the whole car warm-up before you move. I know we're not gonna get warm air. Right. When we we'll we'll be bundled up. So we'll be okay. But the newer cars. Do you have to? Are you supposed to give it a little time to let the car itself warm up to perform better if you let it run for a little while before you start moving it normally not much warm up is necessary. Right into drive in the extreme cold. I would definitely Ichitaro run for a couple of minutes. Just let things warm up because there's things attached to the car catch to the engine. Like, the transmission and that needs to warm up a little bit too. And your transmission, and I didn't mention this before it's going to be a little clunky or in this weather as well. Okay. I got a question for you also coming in from the six zero if you cannot put your car in a garage does it help to cover your engine with a wool blankets. No. A while. Right. Obviously, you're retaining heat that he's gonna disappear. So installations, really not going to do much for you over eight to twelve hours in this weather. We're talking to Tom appel automative automotive expert and publisher of consumer guide on automotive. You can see the daily drive blogs. CG daily drive dot com. You can follow car. You got a great Twitter handle car guy. Tom. Nice and easy for you. I actually take a call or two. I've got a few callers got some questions. I don't mind at all. All right. Let's go to Pam, Pam. You got a question you're on WGN. Oh, sorry about that. All right. I have a question what about synthetic oil. I have a superhero and the last time I had was a Toyota Camry. And they required having day came with synthetic oil. And I believe that starts easier than regular oil, doesn't it Tom. What do you think? Yes. And oil for people who don't know has has less organic Petroleum Institute synthetic has it sounds like as they call. It was really good at running when it's cold if you wanted to run out and get oil change right now synthetic in your car. That'd be a great thing to do. It's probably not something convenient for you to now. And it's probably hard to schedule all change. But yes to answer your question synthetic oils are better in the cold always synthetic oils better in the cold. If you were let's say, you're let's say you're doesn't start and you have a problem or the battery doesn't work or whatever and come come. You know, a couple of months from now you're like I don't ever want that to happen again. Is there any car you recommend out there that is gonna do better in the sorta kinda answered that earlier? But you know, if I'm looking for a cold weather cars, it doesn't matter. I need to buy a house with a garage. No. The only thing you can do and no one has these in Chicago anymore, and this isn't car specific there are still engine oil hitter heaters, and they're really just dipstick that you just dropping you Royal pan. And you keep your oil at thirty or forty degrees as opposed to getting colder than that. And those are great because it's easier for your car to start if your oil is warm and sent you don't see those in Chicago anymore used to see why the seventies. Okay. We got a question from six three if I'm storing my son's car while he's in the navy should I started Wednesday and Thursday or do I wait till it gets warmer. Obviously, we don't know when the last time it started or what sort of situation is where it's being stored, but a stored card started up whenever you can to get that thing going unless you need to drive it. I would just leave it alone. Why put it through the hassle the cold weather, and if you don't need to make a cold engine start, I wouldn't and we had a couple of other questions about running it occasionally. Yeah, we'd say that's a good idea. Karna garage. If you're in the garage, you should be okay. Right. I mean, these are getting cold temperatures. But as long as you kind of keep the temperature, even if the temperature in the garage is at zero curse words find to perform right around that level. Yes. Zeros not such a big deal. All right. Sounds good. All right, Tom. Thank you so much for. Answering some questions I know that we keep on getting a bunch more people can find out more about Tom at car guy. Tom is your Twitter handle and tells a little bit of a consumer guide automotive you you do a lot of work for them. Right. Yeah. I'm the publisher of consumer guide automotive and that inclusive.

"WGN Anna happy Friday afternoon to you Jon Hansen for John Williams until three o'clock. So we're waiting on a few things are the sentencing trial underway for Jason Van Dyke were keeping an eye on that will, of course, bring you the ruling from the judge and whenever we get alive. But you just heard Stacey Saint Clair say that it could be a while. We're still on defense witnesses right now or excuse me prosecution. Witnesses haven't even gone to defense witnesses. So it could be some time. Also, keep an eye on this winter storm, which is barreling its way towards the area. Still a couple of hours away from that winter storm warning from officially taking effect, but I'm looking at the radar now. And I'm starting to see some snow approaching the Elgin area, the western northwestern suburbs. Oh, here we go weatherman, John hands. Sorry, I had to break in and thanks for chiming in pre sheet that before you officially starts do that was very county. But as I see I'm looking I'm zooming out the raiders far as I can this storm. This is a big one that goes back all the way to north South Dakota. Soaking california. Right. I mean, it's. Yeah. Moving across the country for a couple days, quite a clip. I was reading some stuff from Tom skilling in the newspaper that some of the parts of the Jetstream were blown at one hundred and fifty miles an hour. I don't know if that's faster than normal. It would seem to indicate that that would be as it's going to be quite an intense storm making its way through the area. But we'd love for you to chime in is it snowing near you three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred sometimes that when we talk we just like to commiserate with each other so feel free to chime in with what you might be doing this weekend with the snowfall here as well. I think it's a stay inside pajamas sorta weekend. But if you're so inclined to help some other people out the folks from my block, my hood, my city might give you some really cool. I'll -tunities to help out your neighbors Jamal Cole the founder joins us right now, Jamal, how're you doing my friend. How you doing today? I'm doing great. It's always great to talk to you. Give such a positive vibe. You do so many great things for the city. You're looking for volunteers, right? Definitely meant tomorrow Saturday at eleven AM be beating the red line station on Sunday nights. They were going to be helping out a lot of seniors in Chattanooga. They can't walkers and have neuropathy in the risk. They need help shoveling. So anybody that wants to come out and volunteer their time for meeting at eleven AM at the seventy ninth state Redline Jamal by then there might be eight inches of snow on the ground. You sure you can handle all this. You got a hundred glove. One hundred shovel we we got behind us. And we got Dr Martin Luther King. So what's something simple? You can do to make an impact on the city. You do not need a master's degree to shovel. Snow? You don't need a legal degree to wanna get to know, your neighbors. So we're gonna be doing simple stuff tomorrow by Shutler. So for singers. Yeah. I think a lot of folks out there know that the snow's common, and they kind of roll their eyes. But there are at least, you know, of an age where they're they're still able to get the shovel out and do it or maybe you got a snow blower at home. And it's easy for you. See it's easy to forget them. All that a lot of folks in our city don't have those resources to buy some like that. But they're just not physically able to do it. I mean this. This is something tangible you can do to make someone's life better. It's happening throughout history of Chicago as well where like a heat wave in the nineties were a lot of seniors. You know, unfortunately, lost their lives. But nowadays, we have technology what we can target specific demographic Swiss specific events, and we can help people better nowadays. So you live at Facebook. I'm utilizing technology to connect volunteers. So the thing is that need help Jamal. How many you've done the shoveling before right? I've been doing it for the last six seven years in Chattanooga community last year, though, there was about one hundred and twenty people that showed up of the United States to help shovel they came from Indiana, Edgewater, people from all over and John. That's the beauty of these events. You got people from all over the city all different communities cultures. Genders religious all coming together in Chicago to help people in need. It's beautiful part of the mission of your organization. My block my hood. My city is not only take kids from the south and west sides and take him to the north side of downtown. But it's really to encourage people from other neighborhoods to visit new neighborhoods, particularly on the south and west sides, where they may have a opinion of it based on what they see on the media. But it's a way different neighborhood toured the north Lonsdale neighborhood for the jam and had a great time doing it. So awesome. Awesome places. But I love that you're meeting at the red line Seventy-nine station because if you're anywhere along the red line or the purple line or the yellow line CD the trains run like no problem when it's no it's no big deal running with. So there's no excuse I on the north side not to come down to seventy nine street tomorrow. This red line of the order. It's harder Chicago, you know, you can't I fall asleep. I love the red line. You know, so tomorrow to Lebanon, but you're right. It's all to make Chicago better. We need more people to look up from the train when the rhino led lights. See what they can learn from different people at the sites around, you know, grab a bite to eat and neighborhoods. You never been to before we got to mean, our best quality of the city is our diversity step outside your appetite for adventure. They come out with help somebody that needs help in challenged tomorrow. Cindy, great. So you've got a Facebook page for the event, and they can also get a cool hat if they come right? Your little swag away. You already know for hundred people calling thirty if you will come and get a hat, you know, but we also you can text shovel the word shovel to five five to to to find out more information again, you can text message shovel to five to to learn how you can donate volunteer. But the first hundred people you already know you're getting. My city Jamal some people that are listening now probably have never heard of the organization, and you don't have to rehash the whole history of it. Because we've done that plenty of times you and I on the air, but I just think in thirty seconds or a minute, you know, how can people get involved in what you do. And I mean, it's these tangible things it's the cleanup things it's the snow shoveling things that your organization do that. Really? They just make such a big difference, man. Yeah. Well, my personal philosophy of democracy starts from the block level is not the city level in were just a block level outwear. So instead of saying the city is messed up the weather's messed up the politicians messed up. I think that's a of us messed up. Instead of blaming things. Other people. What's something simple? You can make yourself do have a positive impact. That's why we shovel snow. It's very simple. If you start with a simple things you develop the muscle. It takes to take on the biggest challenges. So. Hello. Your neighbor started blockbuster and your block started Facebook page for your block. What are you do easy stuff like that a ripple effect throughout the city? So tomorrow, we'll be Craig hopefully cleaning ripple effects if you can't make the United States. Go shovel your were snow through the block of UK. I wanna see that kind of ripple effect happens. Chicago, man, you're absolutely right. There are some folks obviously listened to us from the far suburbs. They're not going to have a chance to make it in. But you're right. Even in your call of a sack wherever you are. If you live in an apartment complex or wherever you need. Let's let's it's we're all in this together Jamal, Joe true. Doesn't matter. You can you can't make it agenda. You can get text message to five five two two two and make a donation. We you know, we buy the salt with buying the gloves. We're buying the shovels. We're out here. Trying to help as many seniors as possible, and we have a little one hundred eighty addresses of to do tomorrow. So I'm looking forward to as much help as possible. Or does mean United St. at eleven AM the month, Jamal, take it easy. Right. Thanks for calling in. You bet you have a good day..
