"Started by deem came. And then some fellows from the past here in Detroit JT Battenberg the third France wa what was France was last name. I can't remember. But it good guys who were very much involved with I many many years ago was Castaing. Yeah. French wok Castaing, and we broadcast from the finals at Walt Disney World, many years ago and dean came and it's been on with us a number of times over the years. The guy who developed the insulin pump, and oh, so many things segue. But he was the founder of I that is coming back to Detroit and here, in fact, and it couldn't happen without great sponsorship. And I salute consumers energy president and CEO for having the the foresight and understanding of just how important this whole mex- generation of stem, science technology, engineering and math talent being wooed and taken care of Patty. Poppy is on the line. And God bless you Patty for understanding just how important I is. And being a big sponsor. Well, the morning Paul W and it's partly because it is so important to create these scientists and technologists the future. But frankly, it's because it's so darn fun. It's hard to stay away. It is fun. And it's and it's fun for the adults in it's fun for the kids. And you might explain that. Because that's what it is. It's an interaction between scientists mathematicians techniques technicians people who are in business, working hard and kids get to see them having fun and they worked together. Yeah. It's it's really a big video game. That's three it's live. They have you know, they program their robots they build them from scratch. It's it's like an apprenticeship program, the mentors, engineers, and programmers and just all sorts of adults professionals work side by side, just as you described but young people making these robots. To go out and compete and they're coming to Detroit. Yes. And in fact, these people compete, but in a different way than the competition. We're more familiar with because if somebody breaks down if they're robot breaks down other teams work together to help them get it rolling again rather than going there. They're robots broken down. We're gonna win. They help them get their robots fixed. It's an amazing thing. Unlike anything I've ever seen going all the way back to the kids coming into the field of play with bagpipers. I mean, it's just fun. They call it co-operative. And maybe we need a little more of that today. Maybe the grownups need to learn from the kids on how to work together to get great things done. I love that name that makes good sense in the consumers energy excited to sponsor and participate in the first championship again, as you mentioned, Patty. Poppy it open stores. It's it it. It leads kids to careers that they may not. Have thought about and they again, get to see professionals in those careers and positions having fun. I mean, let's face it. We some of us grew up with mom and dad coming home complaining about their worker complaining about their job. These folks gleefully do their job and the kids get to see that and say, gee, I wanna feel that way. I want to do that. That's exactly right. And you know, the exciting thing is at the world championship is coming to Detroit come into Cobo. I'm the chair of the host committee welcoming everyone to Detroit, and I have to tell you. We are ready. We are so ready, and it starts this week and people if they don't know what you and I are talking about if there if they think it sounds boring like why are Paul W and Patty so excited about this. I'm telling you gotta come down to Cobo Thursday Friday Saturday. It's all free. The whole city is going to be just lit up. The parks are activated. The we're going to have food trucks. And then inside Kobo is one of the. Greatest competitions that you'll see it feels just like the final four basketball tournament really incredibly really does. And it is exciting. And if.

"That. I don't know if I if I'm suffering from some some very of the Stockholm syndrome, or I don't know, maybe that's not the best way to describe it where you know, when I know these people I've interviewed him a number of times, you just don't wanna believe that. They did something bad. Do you know what I'm saying? Yeah. So I don't wanna believe. That. That Carlos go and did a lot of bad stuff. So I I listen when he says that there's I do know that he went is trying to throw some people out, and he didn't realize how powerful they were from the company, and they turned on him, and they had bigger knives to stab with than he did which is unusual. Right. But like, I I want I I hope and pray that Lou Anna Simon didn't do anything that would find her to be guilty of something bad some criminal activity. I clearly she missed what was going on. Or at least. I hope she missed. What was going on? Is this a normal thing to to feel when these people that you've spent time with and and you know, I go back to the JT Battenberg the third day of Delphi. They were yelling and screaming about him. Breaking the law committing crimes he didn't. And he was never found guilty of doing any of that stuff. And I'm glad I mean, the guy was an eagle scout for God's sakes. And and I believed in. JT? I still believe in JT wherever he might be. I wanna believe in Simon and I wanna believe in Carlos going. But again, this could be a version of like the Stockholm syndrome. I don't know. Well, his trial has not even been set in Japan. They were new allegations. And so he was revealed so they have piled on against Carlos. They're loving it, of course, grabbing a guy like that. It was at the top of his game. And was he's saying that he was planning a full merger between Nissan and Renault that of course, was going to be bad for some of the executives at Nippon he suggests and so they went ahead and they being the Nissan people the high level executives apparently went to the prosecutors and said look what we have discovered. Yeah. Will claiming some wrongdoing we'll watch it play out and see what happened. How about this over the weekend? In chicago. The weather starts to get nice. The guns come out thirty-three. Meanwhile, shot over the weekend in Chicago thirty three four dead, but thirty three as the weather gets better. The living gets worse. Sadly for some people there in Chicago. Do you have a favorite cold remedy? Boy, if I did I would tell you immediately. I had a favorite still my favorite until it proves me wrong. It might be proving wrong. I think better than Nyquil dayquil. I've always liked the alka-seltzer plus cold medicine. But they've changed the formula. It's now power Macs gels concentrated formula. I dunno. They felt they had to do it research indicated they must new twenty five percent smaller liquid gels. They almost I don't know. They, you know, flashy and all of them the bag Bianca. Seltzer must've retired. I think that those kids that are now in charge of retired him altogether. Didn't even know what he I do not have a cold remedy when I get a cold. I'd just kind of suffer this used to be a miracle drug for me. And I'm not so sure the new formulation is. It's not the first time someone came out with something new like new coke, or what is what they call. It. New coke. Yeah. New coke which failed miserably they quickly grabbed their old coke, right? And then they call it. Classic. Classic coke. But now there are so many cokes. Now that orange vanilla. I mean, they're just a just a lot of cokes there Coca-Cola's..

"Kick-starting big plans city works to spur action on long-stalled development projects. Yes. There's a whole whole group large group of of redevelopment projects in Detroit mid-size hundred department type things. That the city has awarded over the past several years that for one reason or another having a hard time getting off the ground. So the city doing a big review talking to these folks trying to see what can we do to get shovels in the ground in the next three to six months? They're putting pressure on partly because there's there's some out there a recession the next couple of years, which would make it even more difficult to get the project started if they can get more of them underway. They're more likely to finish them, obviously includes which projects such as paradise valley. Harmony park redevelopment and many others. We have a big long list. Hopefully, hopefully, they'll have some success in in getting these projects moving. Yeah. Well, certainly would hope so because we've had a lot of success with a lot of projects thus far. I would like to can't always stay hot and pushing and win. They developed and real estate development is complicated. Putting together financing and clear title in and this. And that is you know, it's it's it's not an easy business. Interesting that that Delphi technologies. I had to do a double take when I got my super-secret early Inc. Still wet copy of Crain's Detroit business over the weekend at the house. I look twice at this story with with what's going on with a new CEO at Delphi technologies. Doc. Yeah. They they've hired Richard out to to run to run the company. He is of course, the son of dick Dow who was the longtime Boston American Axle, both his sons were executives. There is other son is still the CEO mcdavid CEO now, right? Yes. Yup. Yup. He's divide that Richard taking the reins at Delphi. Big challenge. This is the part of Delphi that that was the the power powertrain business the fancy electronics business editor time when really the, you know, the makers are turning away from from gas powered engines toward electric, so it's it's company. That's that's. Flex for a while. All right. Well, we certainly wish him well. And he's got a great company. We were we were there from the beginning of Delphi. JT Battenberg the third who was given their project with the belief that it would fail, and he wouldn't let it fail and that was a long long story long long road overs over the last twenty five years. The rumblings column says you have some news that Dave Hillenbrand who just finished up chairing the appropriations committee in the state Senate is going to join a lobbying firm east going directly from from from the Senate to to to lobbying. He's joining the Kelly costarring lobbying firm founded by by impart by former attorney General Frank Kelly. It's not necessarily surprising news. We'll get people talking for sure because because it has long been criticism of people going directly from government to to the lobbying. There's been a passing of the torch. I spoke to Keith Crain that too long well, probably around Christmas to say merry Christmas and all of that. But he talked about basically passing the torch to son Casey who has been president for a while. Now, it's Casey that's that's writing the editorial in Crain's Detroit business, and he did a fine. One on the auto show. Matter of fact, came case Casey is as publisher of Crain's Detroit going to be rating is gonna be writing columns, and he made a debut this week. Really good. Really good Columbine. The auto show taking a part of you know, why it sees the need to change and besides just moving from January to June. But really changing the whole shape of this show to include more more more interactive exhibits, outdoor stuff that sort of thing a really strikes optimistic tone on the opportunity that this provides. Of course, has a huge economic impact here. And and it really needs to succeed in this transition at a time when Otto shows are changing in the automakers are a mess less than less and less valuable at least in their old attorneys. I hope they remember just how valuable this one is to the city right half billion dollars worth of importance to our area. Mike Lee, always a pleasure Super Bowls. Yeah. Right..
