"Today. We're talking about the seat in which your baby learns how to eat. That's right highchairs. And when it comes to hide your design there is no one more well known for icon design in this space than peter obstacle of norway. Peter offset designed the trip trap highchair in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. When he looked around for a chair that allowed his son to sit in a natural way at the grownups table and because nonesuch chair existed he designed what is now known as the iconic trip chair basically so he could include his son in as he says life round the table. So many of you may have this chair that trip trap or recognize it. It's sometimes like to a ladder so the trip trap is a wooden chair with an adjustable seat and adjustable footplate and grows with your child so the company that peter designed it for which is called. Shutt- is headquartered in norway. And they've actually sold more than twelve million trip trap as so it is one of the. Most globally recognized chairs. Personally i love this chair. I have in us seven of the trip traps around the table for my seven children. They've really been fabulous investment wonderful. Especially if you have a smaller space where you're feeding your baby or babies or if you're feeding multiples it's wonderful because it has a much smaller footprints like not one of those highchairs. It's gonna take up your kitchen. So while peter fix trip trap was designed and launched in one thousand nine hundred ninety two when his son was little forty years later in twenty thirteen obstacle launched. Another chair called the nomi and this was really his realization of his vision for designing the next generation highchair one. That's dedicated to his grandchildren. So peter obstacles now eighty one at the time of this recording. He continues to work every day. And cures deep vandross is a physiotherapist and an ergonomic who works very closely with peter. In fact she's worked with peter object for the last thirteen years. So kirsty is going to be on the podcast today.

So if you have a trip trap or a nomi- or if you're in the market for a highchair that will continue to serve your family and your child long after these initial stages of starting solids. I think you're really going to enjoy this interview. Because the scandinavian design principles and the philosophies held by peter and explained today by st are so very different from what we may have in mind when we go to select a seat for our baby to learn how to eat so today on the podcast. Kirstin i are going to be talking about the difference in american and european safety standards. Why norwegian families do not actually strap their babies of their toddlers into the degree or the extent that americans may think is necessary. This is going to be very eye opening for a lot of you certainly was for me as kind of a control freak. Mom we'll be chatting about why the trip trap and the nomi were designed with the very obvious absence of trey and what that means. and then. How the adjustable foot rest is probably the most important safety and design component missing from most highchairs today. So i hope you enjoy this interview with cure. Steve andros from the peter obsta company. Kirsty thank you so much for joining us. I am so excited to have the opportunity to interview you. It's catching get now. If you can. Would you tell us a little bit about your background. And how you know the whole life story maybe. How did you get into product design. And then how did you come to. Work with. Peter ops vic. Oh it's a long story. I am a physiotherapist anais. I started working in our major hospital here in in ostler with people with back and neck problems you know. People came into the hospital more or less paralyzed with pain and never thought they would be able to come up and walk again and with a treatment lots of guidance we build them up again and they went home and they were fine and had a lotta for knowledge with how to behave to avoid back and neck problems then. I saw that it was difficult for them. To use to knowledge they had when they went back to back. So i sold our institution equivalent to osha would been interesting place to work to see if i was able to get other people to create positive working environments where you could work but still keep your health so i spent ten years in our show in charge of ergonomics and then i started sinking. What about getting into detail. The totality because their via opium much more than chair tables but share and tables reports on the totality and. I wanted to see if we could make chairs in such way that you didn't talk to have problems with your body after sitting. Who working so. I started working ritual. Company that developed sitting solution for the working person unlock was contested. Interesting period thomas there for six teen years and then i met peter ops week. One of a number of designers. We used not process another lost twelve years. We're solely read. Peter and peter's sir designs promoting them talking about taking part in the product development. So that was a long story. But you know the background and How i ended up here. And you're still actively working with peter. Is that correct. Yes yes wonderful. Can you tell us a little bit about the history of the design of the trip trap and then the nomi highchairs and especially with regard to promoting freedom and fellowship. The trick drop chair was developed in the beginning of the seventies piotre just had his son wounding sixty nine will sitting on an ordinary highchair s. You know the high chair has been around for for generations. you know egypt. They use highchair. the hunt. Chance in their mini is an pizza hut his son sitting in hijab but then when he reached a year and a half you know he didn't really need to sit with the sort of support all around his waist. He was looking for other chairs that he could place his son around the table together with the rest of the company that did not exist so he had to make his own amber trip chapels but one then in nineteen seventy two and i think he did something very clever back then because he did not make it to fit into what you call the design of the seventies he had the distinct bischel feature in the seventies and the result is that the chair still look quite Modern had he designed it giving it the visual design of what the kitchen look like. Back in nineteen seventy two. It would have been outdated very old looking chair today.
Cereal: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
"Today. We're going to be talking about. Some of the most shocking ways cereal has become a keystone in our culture in the surprising health ramifications. That have come as a result of it. But before we do that. I've got to point out that one of the biggest advertising ploys of cereal manufacturers is there cereals are quote fortified with vitamins and minerals right there fortified with vitamins and mineral and this is just pointing to the stark reality that these foods are extremely low in vibe nutrients so synthetic nutrients are then added back to these foods synthetic nutrients now the problem with this is the same thinking that goes into taking a conventional multivitamin that has again synthetic versions of vitamins and minerals and thinking that your body can utilize those better than what you find in real food or you in real food concentrates now with the latest evidence is finally showing us is that vitamins and minerals are not as readily absorbed and utilized by the body. When they're coming in the form of these synthetic multivitamins fortified foods because they lacked the synergistic effects of phytochemicals. That are found in real foods in even real food concentrates and this is according to a two thousand three study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition for example another study that was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that natural food based vitamin E. has roughly twice. The bioavailability synthetic vitamin E. I so now we've got it right there. In Black and white we know that food based sources nutrients are better absorbed by the body. This is one of those things where it just seemed like. It was common sense like it just makes sense but now he has some data affirming that yes. Food is better. Even wholefood based supplements are far better than synthetic versions. And this is why. I'm such a big advocate of having a whole food based source of nutrition for our vitamins and minerals. Because I mean truth be told. Today it is more difficult. We've all got a lot of stuff going on to get all the nutrients that we need to really make our body work at. Its best take a plant like Marina. For example Marina is an incredibly new TRINDON's food in its native to northern India and has been utilized as food and medicine for thousands of years in cultures spanning from Asia to Africa to the ancient Greeks and Romans as well. Now listen to this gram for gram Moranga is noted to contain upwards of seven times more vitamin C. Than Oranges three times more potassium than bananas. Four Times more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. And that's just for starters is also a rich source of antioxidants like cure citizen. What a cute name.

How Nutrition Improves with Connection & Kindness
"Much for listening. Hello and welcome to another episode of nutrition matters. Podcast has always thrilled to be with you today. And so excited to share this podcast episode with you. My name is page and I'm your host and today I'm sharing a conversation that I had with Kirstin Ackerman who is uniquely qualified to talk about this. This really important topic where we're diving deep into this common question. We get as Dietitians where people wonder like often. Get this question where people say. Well I really want to work on intuitive eating but I also have concerns about my cholesterol. Or I'm worried about my diabetes diagnosis. So can you help me? A lot of people really kind of believe or assume that intuitive eating is fundamentally different or in opposition to any particular health concerns or any particular medical nutrition therapy that might be necessary for certain conditions. And I my both feel very strongly that that. That's just not the case and we talk about that today in today's episode. What I love about Curson is. She is a fierce anti advocate. But she also her day job is a is a renal. Dietitian so she works with patients on dialysis and getting treatment for an stage kidney disease or end stage renal failure. I forget what the exact term is there anyway so Kirstin talks about her her work and how she uses intuitive eating at even with her her kidney patients and I just thought that this was really important thing to share. So if you've ever wondered yeah I'm really interested in this intuitive eating stuff but I have all these health concerns and if you felt like you had to pick one or the other. I hope that this conversation will give you a little bit of food for thought because I really truly believe that as we use intuitive eating principles and as we connect to our bodies and discover a more peaceful relationship with food it becomes much easier to figure out how we need to care for it whether that's a particular special diet with a certain disease such as kidney disease or whether that's concerns about
Nomadic Matt - The OG Travel Blogger
"Two day. We're talking to one of the old. She travel bloggers. Don't believe me while if you google how to become a full time travel blogger. His website is the number one search result. Which tells you he's source anyway. We've got pneumatic maths. Aka Matthew kept nece here with us today to discuss all things travel the travel lifestyle and something. I'm not an expert. At budget trump matt. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks for having me I. I think I think it'd be interesting watching you in the hostile. You know my first time in a hospital. First and last actually. I've stayed in hostels twice when I was in college. We went to a Ireland. Right around Saint Patrick's Day for spring break. We had found two hundred fifty dollar airfare from Pittsburgh Tha Dublin and we stayed at it was actually decent hostile in Dublin. It was like a party. Hostile right near What's what's The neighborhood all. We're all the bars every bar. Temple Bar My bad hostile experience was in Paris at the peace and love hospice. Hostel Actually passed it recently when I was traveling through the Ariza. Oh my it's a bus in the past and I had a very Thursday they're eight and in eastern European was the three of us in this room and There was some language barriers and Some body odor barriers as well and and of course. Needless say I did not pass. The shower did not pass. Tvd shower tests. I think I had to contorts myself but yeah I mean they're small for me. Sometimes Mike Half Your size so matt you've been in the travel game for a long time. We're going to get into your story how you got but do you still. You're successful. You run a great website. Nomadic MATT DOT COM. Do you still stay in. Hostels all the time I say private runs now. I'm not doing dorms. But I love hostels you know I just. I traveled to meet people. And if I'm not traveling for work I like to be around other travelers so I find awesome the private room and I stay there and even if I am just there for a couple of days and I don't really get to interact with them as much as possible. I like the energy and the vibe and just kind of makes me feel a lot better than just being alone in a hotel room. So what what are the best ways to research hostels? 'cause there's obviously varying hostels right. There's like Roach just like there are hotels are crummy hotels and an awesome hostels. Like what are the tips on finding a really fun quality hostile? I always look at the reviews on hostile world Because travellers tens day a lot of hospitals so the average review is usually pretty accurate. I I like hostels with But organized tours and activities to me. That's a key component. You have a lot of hostels. These days like generator. Saint Christopher's even Free and that are just sort of like hotels for backpackers that four hundred rooms Tour groups go in there. They'll really organiz activities in hospitals all about the community and the atmosphere creates. And so I. I think it's important to find a hostile that we host lots of events. We take you out. We show you around. You know we we get people to interact with each other. What how much hostels go for these days like? I guess it depends obviously where you're going so let's just start with Europe. You're in Paris like what is a a decent you know. Explain to me. How hostile pricing works? Because frankly it's been over a decade. Yeah obviously the the cheaper ones are dirtier and thoughts out our bed or bedbugs. Real big deal with hostels. I mean they are at fancy hotels as well so I'm sure. But is it a real issue on hostile communicate? It's less common than you think because Hostels are hyper aware of it. And so they're always cleaning beds and they're always Taking precautions against it. Obviously the the crappier the hassle bus they care but is such a cute issue that all the good houses are really focused on minimizing that and in the twelve years. Now where are we in? Fourteen years the backpacking in hassles. I've only seen bedbugs once and it was in a hostel in Cambodia But you know I'm pricing. Your average dorm in Europe is highly twenty euros for like something. That's like twelve beds and then the smaller you get. It can go up to thirty thirty five euros. Especially if it's a popular hostile and the city like When my favorite hostels define Pagan Amsterdam and now it's like thirty five dollars a night to stay there. It's really expensive So expensive for dorm room. Yeah a private room is usually around eighty To one hundred euros which at that price it. It's not you can get a hotel or an AIRBNB. That's about the same thing so usually i. I say they're simply because I want the community. Yeah it's less about the price more depending on. I think there's a stereotype about hostels. It's young backpackers wild single to people. Do couple say hostels to like. I've seen couples. I've seen people that are my grandparents AIDS. I I you see everybody in between just like there's a hotel everybody there's a hostile forever by the there are definitely Cardi hassles that catered to the eighteen year olds. Who just want us to get drunk? But there are hostels for tour groups School groups people who just want cycle families So you know that's one of the things you look for in the reviews ways demographic of of most of us will come on and say and they're like description like come here. Just get drunk. You know like skip. Yeah tell me. Your your wildest family friendly this is a family. Friendly podcast Hostile Eddie like really crazy stories or super interesting. I got one so Kirstin from the blonde broad and I were in Barcelona. I made her stay in a hostel and It's I have. I've never named the hostile but it's a well known party one and so we got a dorm room. And there's these Brazilian guys in there and yet they're just getting drunk all the time and our last night there. I got woken up by this giant. Knock on the door and nobody was answering so I finally woke up and answered it when the Brazilian guys who was like a private room or we were in a dorm. Oh six bed. Dorm Room I met her debuted on the door at night. Will they lock you out of your key? You have key So we have gone skeet so I let him in and I go back bays like sorry. Sorry sorry not smell like. Why is the smell wise? It smells like Shit. Oh and I come to realize. Oh that's because they're shit on my hand and then I turned on the light and I realized the L. A. doorknob. Oh the Brazilian guy had shit himself in his bed ran to the bathroom leaving a trail. Oh must have wiped off because there is on the hand knob and then locked himself out and I had been the fortunate one to answer the door the only other people who was Nikkei Stan Two girls and the guidance friend so one of those imagine the screams of one of the girls had opened the thing he looks at me and he's like it wasn't make now's like who else could it be. It was Kirstin and encouraged him. We love you and he's like I just. I was like the trailers right to your bed so I go wash my hands you know. I watched the DOORKNOB. I washed my hands twenty thousand times. You change rooms at this point. I mean we're getting like two hours but will when I got back to the dorm were you able to go back to bed No but when I got back to the dorm his bed was in the hallway and he had wiped up the floor but he was sleeping on a mattress and to this day. I cannot figure out where that matches came from because all the germs are locked but he managed to find the mattress. It's wasn't my mattress. Something tells me this might not have been his first time pulling the style so when we wake up and I tell Carson the story. She's like no way that happened. No Way and like there's no transcendent. Wake up from the smell in the room. He wiped it up pretty fast but so all the all of us have curtains so I had grabbed the carton with my like poop covered hand and there were like Poop streaks. I was like Oh here. Here's the proof and seed as like we have to get out of the hospital today and we actually went to the w after that point extreme at WSB pretty
A Rosenberg by Any Other Name?
"I'm Jason La Steak and I'm really excited to welcome Geraldine. Good a fan and Kirsten from left to the podcast today. To talk about Kirsten's book a Rosenberg by any other name. A history of Jewish name changing America Josie could offend. It's a scholar of modern your studies currently teaching at American University. She received her. Phd In history from Brandeis University in two thousand eighteen and her research is focused on migration gender and the intersection of law and religion in French. American Jewish history. And we're also joined of course by Kirstin from Agla who's an associate professor at Michigan State University's Department of History her book Rosenberg by any other name. Which we're GonNa talk about today explores the history of name changing in the US in the twentieth century and her first book American Dreams and not nightmares looked at secular Jewish intellectuals. Use of the Holocaust in the early nineteen sixties. Thanks Jason I'm Geraldine. I'm very excited to talk with Kirsten today about her book on Jewish name changing in the United States. I was really fascinated to read Christian books because he deals with so many different things. And one thing that really stood out is the question of the types of economic and social anti-semitism that juice faced in the twentieth century. And this is a story that has been obscured both in how American Jews tell their own story and how they really name changing itself. But it's also a topic that has been obscured largely in the history of American Jews. And so a lot of the discussion with Kirsten really centered on the question of how everyday life of Jews in America were is shaped by anti-semitism and how American Jews del their own story in their recounting of how juice change their names in the twentieth century. I hope you'll enjoy this conversation. Kirsten hiding for joining the Jewish history matters podcast. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited so I actually wanted to start with a joke. That's awesome so it's actually a French. Joke offense Jewish joke as I understand it. So it's a story of Mister Meshu Shoe Katzman. We'll goes to the French authorities in the early twentieth century because he wants to change his name. A finds that cats minis for to foreign sounding Fort Jewish sounding so he asked no. Would it be possible to change the name and the French official tells him yes? Sure Okay so what's your name Katzman. So he breaks cats on into to any asked him. So what does that mean in German and the Jewish men says it means Shah Cat in English Okay what does men mean and the men answers it means lum the men so essential official says okay. Katzman you are no no longer cats men but shallow brilliant. It is marvelous because it's really about how your revealing I see in the process of trying to conceal it as you say in the book. Jewish name changing is no laughing matter. We have a lot of jokes involving name changing but it is in fact a very serious topic and so I wanted to start the conversation by asking you why it is such a serious topic and also what do you mean by name changing because I think the readers need to understand what that meant in the American context so the first thing that's really important to say is I only looked at one archive when space for name changing which was official name changing in civil court. It wound up being incredibly rich space. But there's lots of other places in lots of other ways that people could change their names for example. When I started talking about my work I had immigration. Historians say but this is not the only kind of name changing that happens if immigration memoirs you can see and I teach for my students memoirs where people decide to change their name on the shop floor. You know all the people they work with at the sweatshop. I'll sit around and spend the day talking about what your new American names should be. There's definitely kind of informal name changing people sort of take on names and the US among if not the than among the most flexible places in name changing you can really informally. Change Your name to anything. You want without any kind of permission or official status whatsoever. And it's legal this Anglo American law that the US actually took it even to a greater extent in England in some ways on sort of informal name changing people's selecting names because they like them because it sounds good. Those actually are are themselves legal so people can really change their names to anything so because I was using official name changes in city in civil court. I was looking at people who chose to do so officially who chose to be having the state know about their name changing and so- choosing to look at official name. Tinging meant that I was also looking not just at the state it wound up meaning also that I was looking at other kinds of people who might be interested in your name private employers or universities or other kinds of places and spaces where they might these surveillance you. I think maybe watching you questioning. Why your name looks different from one place from the other? What I saw gave us a real insight into the impact of the anti-ageing and the importance of it which is actually kind of your second question right. Why is this important? Why is it serious? A lot of what I've found in the archives. I mean I think a lot of people would have found it boring people's reasons for changing their names if you didn't spend a lot of time looking at them. They were very boring. I want to change my name because it's hard to spell because it's hard to pronounce equal can't remember it. It's hard to say on the telephone. You know a lot of sort of things like that so you had to kind of read through the lines but also some sad stories people who would talk about being excluded in the military people who talked about their employer telling them they had to change their name when they got promoted people who wanted to erase memories of having escaped Germany during World War Two. There are a lot of those sad stories and in other kinds of readings. I did oral history is that I did. It's not always you know. Sort of a tragedy. But there's a lot of lingering sadnesses there's a lot of lingering ambivalence and I think the larger part of the story is people feeling like they had to do this. Some of the interesting part of looking at the state and the government's interest in doing this right and sort of making name changing available to people so easily right so readily you can change your name. Go ahead and change. Her name is volunteerism. The circumstances under which they're changing their names are not free and open they are constrained. They are significantly constrained not forcibly coerced. But they are constrained and sometimes they are being asked to or told to change their names by employers by military officers by defense industry contractors by people who kind of represent some kind of power and have interactions with Stay or certainly with their possibilities of getting a job and living in America. I think it's interesting that everybody's treated this so much as a joke that no scholar studied it. You know which I find really interesting right. That people have so far. Brush this and treated it as something that was not serious that was insignificant or Hurace. Something that was not really important so you actually mentioned the state a few times so I wanted to ask you about the state. What's at stake in controlling names and name changes from a state perspective so the federal government begins asking about name tinges voluntarily on Naturalization Petitions in nineteen of Sex. It is voluntary. It's just a line on your naturalization petition so I only did a very limited look at naturalization petitions but I found at least a few where somebody clearly had changed their name so that it looked very different but clearly the people setting this out that they didn't fill out a name change like the government didn't see this change in spelling as actually being a change in name. So there's a certain amount of laxity that European grants are being treated with in their ability to change their names so my story more begins with really World War One and then especially the Inter war period and World War Two and it spirals as the welfare state as the government begins to be concerned with issues of security and be concerned that the people standing in front of whatever federal worker may not be who they size so one of the most important things I think that leads to the nineteen forties in particular being. Sort of the place. Where you see. More of these official petitions being submitted than any other time in the twentieth century is that the government decides that during World War Two. It actually happened in nineteen ninety eight. They begin having defense. Contractors require birth certificates on so they can ensure the safety of their defense plates. So you see beginning in the nineteen thirties forties this kind of spiraling new. People start to have to produce their birth certificates in order to get jobs to become a part of the war effort which is where the jobs are happening and then as people begin to register for the draft or as they begin to be officers they are getting inconsistent right. It's not I don't think this is every single person who goes to apply to become an officer or to register for the draft or even to try to work for the defense industry but what you get is just more and more people who are getting defense contractors or officers or rotc people or whoever saying. Oh your name doesn't match you know you're going to have troubles you know you need to come back. And produce a birth certificate that matches so some of this is about security right security as the country is going to war and I think some of it is just about the government beginning to look to documents. They are trying more during the welfare state especially during the war to keep track of. Who's who I didn't see a lie. That was necessarily pushed by the Alien Registration. Act But that is something that is starting to begin to question people who have not become citizens yet so my gases that is playing a sub textual role in some people's decisions to do this. The state is beginning to keep track of people and so this kind of very open ended name policy which was working really to sort of bring white immigrants into the country and enfold them seamlessly as the US goes to war as it begins to offer benefits like welfare benefits but also especially as it begins to go to a second war it begins to want to keep track of people and it's using names as part of that way of kind of keeping track of

Company tied to deadly crane collapse cited with safety violations over the past decade
"Tonight that the company that operated a construction, crane that collapsed, and killed a woman during a storm yesterday has been cited at least seventeen times with federal safety violations, and that's just in the past decade Maria via riyal. Is there? More than twenty four hours after the deadly collapsed. The massive crane is still in the middle of the crumbled buildings along with questions about why it fell absolute off from a nearby parking garage. Witnesses capture the frantic moments. Video posted online shows the crane coming down slicing through two buildings in seconds. Twenty nine year old Kirstin Simone. Smith was killed and five others were injured. David Mendoza rushed into hell we look over to the right and you see a gentleman kind of dangling in this car. That's facing straight down. Investigators believe weather may have been a factor with winds registering at least eighty miles per hour. But construction cranes are supposed to with sand. Hurricane-force winds. You have at least five other cranes that are up right now. And they didn't blow attorney Dwayne dent has worked several crane collapsed cases. So something clearly went wrong here, there was human error here toilets, not ninety percent of the cases are human factors. Since two thousand twelve nine deaths have been reported in Texas, the state leads the nation in fatal accidents involving a construction, crane more than three times the deaths in the next leading state. That's the search Francis could take
Wildlife Tourism And Other Dangers Facing Our Most Coveted Species
"Here with me in studio is Natasha, daily a writer and editor for National Geographic, covering, animal welfare and exploitation. She's the reporter behind net Geos June. Cover story about wildlife tourism behind the scenes the tash up. Welcome to one A. Thanks. For having me. First things. First Natasha, what do we mean? When we talk about wildlife tourism talk about the wide array of experiences that this includes right, so wildlife tourism really can run the gamut from going into the forest with binoculars looking for birds to going on safari to having these up-close experiences with exotic animals. So it really does run a there's a vast spectrum that it covers. And now you made a short documentary that showcases some of what you found while traveling. And researching this story, here's a piece of that documentary. She's. Mccain behind the stadium where the elephants perform, and we found this juvenile elephant on. He has a gaping at his temple. He also has broken leg. The other one is chained up. He looks totally emaciated skin and bones. This is forced shape. I've seen an elephant in Thailand. All in the name of entertainment, while I have to say, I, I watched that earlier. And, and as we were just discussing a lot. Yes, being there in person was extremely difficult. So just a little background on our story, so photographer. Kirstin loose. And I traveled around the world over the course of about a year, looking at various hot spots, where this industry is thriving and that clip. You just heard was from a elephant attraction outside of Bangkok Thailand. And we found this, juvenile elephant behind a stadium gives an overview of where all you went to right. So we traveled. So we really wanted to go to hot spots around the world where this up close, these up close encounters with captive wildlife are thriving. So we, we went to Thailand where there for about a month. We went to Russia, we went to Hawaii, and where this all started to rewind was actually in the rainforest where we are looking at these experiences with Slavs, Caymans, Anaconda, etc. That's what I was just gonna ask you what kinds of wildlife tourism, did you encounter along the way? Right. So we're really looking at native species in each place. We went, so and the reason we're doing that is because, for example, you may go to Thailand as a traveler and something that's kinda often at the top of people's bucket lists as wanting to get close to an elephant, or a tiger. So we really want to look at animals native to the countries where we were traveling to see how they're used for these unique wildlife experiences. Laura tweeted, she says we went on our honeymoon to Thailand with visions of writing an elephant upon arrival. We were warned of the horrific condition used to break the elephants and opted to visit a sanctuary instead where we could feed the elephants and give them a bath. It was more expensive, but far more humane. Right. Ring a bell. Yeah. Absolutely. So I think that this is increasingly I mean, first of all tobacco a little bit. What I think Laura is describing is a process that is pretty universe. Missile based on what we found in our reporting. So in order for an elephant, for example, to be docile enough to interact with humans up close to give those rides or even give those baths or perform tricks. They have to be trained from a young age. And so we encountered hundreds of elephants through our, our time in Thailand, and spoke to trainers, etc. And typically what happens when elephants is young is at the elephant is separated from its mother, and that it is slowly trained using a an instrument called bullhook, which is a wooden stick with a metal hook on the end to comply to sit to stand to tricks and essentially to, to be able to obey the owner. So I think that's what Laura describing what she heard about before she went there, and maybe she didn't realize before she went the is prolific throughout the industry. Can you describe a bit more about the
What are conservatives saying about Joe Biden's new video?
"So I looked at what Ed Morrissey had written about Russia. Hangover muller. Hangover said, hey, let's talk about that. But now knowing Ed knowing hot air knowing what he's doing. I just offer the curve ball of front and safe. Hi, welcome. It first of all have you caught the Joe Biden video this morning. I've got some of it. I just I I was kind of ripping through it right before I came on the air with we would probably come out interesting. Probably one of the more effective campaign videos that I've seen so far the ones that I've seen from other democratic candidates were sort of all over the place. At least one thing Trump. I, you know, and I'm just so disappointed, and I'm probably naive to be. I mean, I've I've tried to be a head of the curve on a lot of things and not be surprised by so many things. But I thought we would see Joe come in at his likable best with with some things to say about Trump, and we need to sort of point things in a different direction. And I've got a different view of immigration and a different view in the environment. And I just welcomed the opportunity to become your nominee, blah, blah, blah. I did not expect Trump is Hitler America is Germany in the nineteen thirties under him and only I can save you. And my shallow analysis is to be disappointed. I hate this. I wanted better. But I think you might be honest you called effective. And it probably is for exactly the audience that he's pitching to today's democrat party. Remember what he's probably got the centrist ready enhanced. Right. That's the analysis. That's what he's got to be looking at is that there isn't a lot of competition for the traditional Joe Biden democratic voters there. Everybody's pushing to the progressive so biting I think thinking I got those people just by jumping into the race. What I've got to do is be able to compete for the progressive activists against Kemba Harris, you know? Elizabeth Warren along with a lot of other zero percenters in yield. And so so that's tailoring. The message to to hit those progressive activists to to to take those voters away from that into claims sort of a consensus among all the sides of the Democratic Party. So I see the strategy there. I'm with you on that. I kind of thought that he'd be killer uncle Joe coming out of the gate to. But it doesn't surprise me that that he's seeing as the has the activist blood of the party at the moment. And that's what he's going for. Because the the danger is that by being the likable of jeweler guy that he gets tagged as being weak gets tagged as being unfit for the fight. And he's gotta show that he's willing to throw the sharp elbows. I don't know if it so much that or if it's just the fact that he's got to overcome the fact that. He's an old white guy. I think that's really the big issue. Right now is politics Democratic Party. And he's got to find a way to cut through that. And the one way to do that is to go after Trump. Listen, heavy mentioned identity politics on wanna get to your wonderful piece at the week dot com called the Muller war rages on I've got you and the gift of a little bit of time since identity politics does want so much of the democrat party a lot. A lot of women are having a lot of impact Coppola Harris has the the the double dip of women of color, which is such a shameful thing. Because she is is a smart and talented Makamba person. And yet in today's Democratic Party. It's all about the kind of of identity stuff that you mentioned. But here sitting here in Texas. I'm watching beta meltdown, but the more at least as interesting story is how unaccomplished Hispanic man like on Castro has crickets and tumbleweeds. Have you noticed? He is he conspicuous by his absence in any kind of discussion of. Early buzz. I actually a little surprised about that too. Because this is a name that's been popping up for quite a while. I mean, the Castro both Castro brothers have been talked about for at least three or four years maybe longer than that about being the the the index comers in the Democratic Party. And I'm wondering if. I'm wondering if it's just an issue of. Platform. I mean camera Harris comes from California, California's very blue state. It's very large state very important state in in the democratic primaries now because it comes early in the primaries it didn't use to come early in the primaries. I'm wondering if that if it is media situation when you're in the Senate, it's easier to get media attention to when you're in the house, or when you're mayor of a city in Texas. So the Castro brothers haven't really been. Media dominant, right? See them around the media. Has something to do with it. And then again, you get Kirstin Jill, right? Who also comes from it, very important democratic state, very blue state, highly popular state and she's zero percent to. So it's see I think that's the very good analysis. Right. Let's go to what I actually wanted you on the show for but in today's fast moving world. Let's not part company before we talked about your piece, headlined, the Muller war rages on what is your basic feces there on how Democrats are living in post Muller, America. I think that they can't let it go. And I think that they're going to find the more that they can't let go the more. They're gonna disconnect from voters on this. But clearly what they wanna do is they want to reconstitute the mullahs report under their own steam. And and so they're going to try to do what you especially when it comes to obstruction of Justice. I think that they've given up on the Russia collusion thing. Adam Schiff aside? I think that kind of given up on the Russia collusion. Hardly anything about that really since bars report. But certainly since the mullahs report came out, and so I think it's going to focus on instruction as an impeachable offense. And what they wanna do is. They wanna drag all the different witnesses that Muller talked to during the investigation and Adam testify before congress, so they can try their own conclusions rather than Muller's conclusions are William bars conclusions. I I don't think the administration's gonna sit for that second work. And Secondly, I don't think people really care as much as Democrats things they do about. This is something that I think most people felt the Miller report settled and without the without an underlying crime of Russian collusion that really concerned about whether or not Donald Trump head temper tantrums over this looks something else and how it will play than the next chapter of President Trump's combativeness well seem to be to resist every subpoena that comes his way in order to pile on impost Muller, America. Everybody knows my dog knows that these are punitive subpoenas because they can't let it goes you've described. But there's something about resisting subpoenas that have. It's it's it's dicey. It's risky has that gonna play. You're right about this. And in fact, I think is Jonathan swan Mike Allen, it actually has a pretty decent piece about this today is that you can the White House can simply stall this thing forever by refusing cooperate with subpoenas and congress can issue citations all day. But the Justice department isn't going to force that, and if you wanna get example of just look at Eric Holder with fast and furious. They stonewalled it over executive privilege. The Obama technically wasn't even involved in this discussions, and they didn't settle it until Donald Trump came into office where they Eric Holder. Finally turned over some of the documents that they've been looking for so, yeah, you can still this thing forever. And the question of whether does your political damage, it it certainly didn't with Obama Obama got reelected, even though Eric Holder was found in contempt over operation fast and furious, and he was very popular throughout his presidency. Even though he was stolen that investigation. And in this case. Factor for both sides is that they waived executive privilege for more. So Muller is interviewing all these people. Executive privilege now Democrats are arguing look that the precedent. That means that you that. It's it's waved forever. And that's a legal question. It's certainly going to be. Have to be nailed down. However, the Trump administration can turn around and say, look, we cooperated with the independent counsel cooperated with the guy that we didn't like, and we all these people already talked to investigators, and they have a report a full report that tells them exactly what they found reductions part of the report, and I think that's Trump administration. Can't successfully argue that they cooperated so much during the special counsel investigation that it is illegitimate attempt at congress to try to reconstitute that into a kangaroo court, and they're simply not going to cooperate with necessarily gonna hurt

But this was the argument in favor of the restructuring of D H us. We just restructured things to be more responsive to the I in a customers within DHS and in local communities while reducing overlap with what the FBI does we? Actually believe we are far more effective now. But according to a local law enforcement that is not the case. I'll give you one example sergeant Mike Abdeen who is the Los Angeles County or with the Los Angeles County sheriff's department. He says it doesn't seem to be as robust as active as important. It is important. I'm sure, but it's not a priority. It doesn't seem like engagement outreach and prevention are seen as a priority as we used to see in the past there were around table meetings in the past. There was more activity more training more seminars. Now, it seems like it's gone away. And the fact of the matter is it has gone away because that group has been again disbanded and Kirstin meal sin who's head of the department of homeland security recently gave a speech this was after the tragic events that took place in New Zealand, and she said, quote, we to have seen the face of such evil with attacks in places such a shock.

"Terrain travel to try to get to the United States and enter the country in a legal way. You know, hearing that the borders been shut down. Of course, they're going to be frustrated they're going to be angry. And so few of them had apparently thrown projectiles at border patrol agents and Kirstin meal sin the secretary of homeland security released a statement saying this, let's go to graphics twenty-seven as I have continually sated DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons. Yeah. Look, I don't know if I even believe that they anyone through anything. So they're in these situations. There's always conflicting reports, and there's people saying that look we've been waiting to go through the whole time. And then they shut the wall. Then I think thirty nine people roughly the count trying to get past the gate out of the five hundred that were seeking asylum on that day out of the five thousand that are in the sports center in Tijuana. So it's a tiny percentage that got frustrated. That's why I wonder like the frustrations on purpose. It might not be might just be the Trump wants a slow them coming into the country by any means possible, or it might be they think well, we said they'd rushed the gates. And so maybe if we bottle them up long enough somebody'll rush the gates, and then we'll have the video that in the pictures that we wanted we could show on Fox News all day long ago infestation. Okay. And then you get the department of homeland security to say, they threw something we think. And so now though, so we Tieger teargassed the hell out of did you pay attention to see if it was all males. Or if there was some women and children there who cares? And so, and that's why you see the picture that you did of the mom with the kids running away from the tear gas in terror. So apparently, that's what we're doing in America now. So it could take months to a year in order to finally get your day in front of a judge as an asylum seeker to make your case and have a judge make a decision as to whether or not you're granted asylum. And so I understand the frustration that some Americans are feeling regarding the number of migrants that are seeking asylum. The number of people who are trying to come into the country. It absolutely is a crisis and the backlog is serious. But again, we keep trying to deal with the symptoms of a larger problem. Why are there so many asylum-seekers? Why are they trying to come into the United States? And why are they seeking refuge? Cheer. Okay. Are there possibly US foreign policy US foreign policy has there been US foreign policy in the past that has actually exacerbated this problem. We never have a conversation about that. Right. The drug war. How is it helping cartels and gangs in Central American countries thrive? Is there something that we can do to take the power away from them? So they're not as powerful as they are in these countries like Hundres, for instance, what can we do as Americans, and what can politicians do as leaders to help alleviate this problem? So people aren't rushing into the United States seeking safety. So there's two schools with us on this one is the certified school thought, which is oh, so you're trying to blame us. It's our fault. Yes. Yes. Okay. And now the other school sought is look if you want the mass immigration to stop. Let's look at the root cause so that we can help you and the whole country and the people that live in those countries as well. Get to an answer. So they're not constantly trying to come into the United States. So one thing would be, hey, if there was less as their home countries, not only would they have less reason to flee, but these have less reason to ask for legitimate legal asylum because their lives are in danger in their own country. What is causing the most amount of violence their country. That is indisputable. It is a drug war who started the drug world. We did all that is indisputable. Now, you can say home affected..
Why Morale is Low Among Facebook Employees
"Is lower among Facebook employees in what's been a difficult year for the company. Facebook has seen a sharp decline in its stock price amid ongoing criticism over its privacy practices and its efforts to weed out misinformation on its platform joining us now from San Francisco is Wall Street Journal reporter Kirstin grind Kerstin. Facebook's controversies appear to have taken a toll on its employees. At least according to this internal survey asking them how they feel about the company and its mission. What can you tell us about the results this year? Yes. So this is perhaps not surprising. But these results are pretty bad. So it looks like just in the last year morale among Facebook employs is down about thirty two percentage points from last year. So only just over half of employees are optimistic about Facebook's future, maybe perhaps more notably is only fifty three percent thought that they were making the world better. Down nine teen percentage points from a year ago. That's a really big deal in Silicon Valley. Everyone wants to make the world better. So those are some pretty striking results, especially on those big questions lake whether you believe in the company that you're working for whether you believe in its mission or even its future. How much has that particular measure declined from say others, troublesome times, and Facebook's history will that's one of the interesting things. These numbers are quite a lot worse than in twenty sixteen when Facebook was already kind of struggling with misinformation after the twenty sixteen presidential election. So that's kind of a test of how how bad things have gotten since. Then Facebook admits it's been going through a difficult period. Shares are down more than thirty five percent in the past four months. The company is also had some top leadership changes recently. The Wall Street Journal has been reporting on controversies over privacy practices. Getting misinformation off the platform. What else is Facebook been struggling with this year that makes this period unique? Oh my gosh. Where to start? I mean, this is a company that literally can't go like more than a week without some very deep controversy or problem emerging. So you mentioned the big one which was data privacy. They got in trouble earlier this year when Cambridge Analytica a third party firm improperly accessed a lot of their data. They've been struggling with Russian interference in the elections. They've had a really big issue with the founders of the companies that they've purchased leaving the firm because of you know, struggles with its leadership, Mark Zuckerberg, its chief executive or Sheryl Sandberg at COO. So we've written a lot about that. We wrote about the problems the founders of what's out had the problems the founders of Instagram had just this week. We had a story on another founder Palmer lucky who is fired. From his virtual reality company by Facebook. So it's just it's just been one thing after another for them. How is Facebook responding to declining morale among its own employees than overall. What does this survey mean for the company? The biggest thing for them is you know, it is very hard out here to recruit engineers, it's very competitive. It's going to make it very hard for them. If they're employees are just disenfranchised in one work somewhere else. I mean, they can just go down the street and get a job at Google or any number of startups or companies out here. So hopefully, it won't translate into a big recruitment problem for

"Poll which day which week you look at the Arizona Senate seat race of former Senator Jeff flake is very very tight between Martha mcsally and Kirstin cinema in minutes. We will talk to the democratic candidate Kirstin cinema in studio. We've been working on this for months, we wanna ask Kirstin cinema. The Representative from Arizona a lot of questions she will be here momentarily. Yeah. I think it's going to be interesting. You know, we talked to Martha mcsally in studio. We'll do the same with the other side now with the democratic side Pearson cinema. And I think one of the things that that she'll be here in a minute. Think one of the things you have to think about is if enough independence in Arizona vote for Kirstin cinema. If you take those voters, and you combine them with the existing democratic base is that sufficient enough for cinema to get a win. Now. I think that she's been the favorite. Over the last few months. Remember, she didn't really run against anybody in the primary mic. Sally had to beat a couple people out. And she did. So Mick Sally kinda got tested early. Cinema is getting tested. Now MC Sally, obviously getting tested by cinema. It's a lot closer than I thought. Didn't really anybody would run away with this. Remember, you know, a lot of people wanna say that Zona is far red. It's really just not the case. And in fact, it may turn purple with the with the actual election if Kirstin cinema wins that would be the first time. A it'll be the first time we've had a woman Senator from Arizona, which is great and be since the eighties that seat has not been Democrats since the eighties the big chains. I would say that's great. And someone say it's not so great. That's a big change. But it is good that we're going to have a female represent us finally in the United States Senate so independence could tip the balance. And you got to ask yourself has MC Sally done enough to get independence because Kirstin cinema has I in my opinion, solely sought the independent vote. She took the Democrats as as a as a gift. Given foregone conclusion can I steal some Republicans. Probably right. And can I take the majority not the majority, but it can take well, maybe take more independent votes. Then Sally will you of a political professor says this election is very different most of the independent see themselves as sort of Democrats sort of Republicans. This doesn't appear to be the case in this election in this election. It looks like they're heavily moving away from the Republican party. So this is the first time that you've clearly seen a delineation between independent leaning Republican democrat leaning more democrat, so that's incurable in cinemas favor. So I don't blame her for courting the independent vote not just going down the democrat. Well, you can't win the election that way. Makes Sally hasn't done much to court. True. But you would think that, you know, hey, cover your basis kind of thing. And that just hasn't happened which I think is kind of interesting, and like I said the poll show that it's pretty it's still a pretty close race. Absolutely. So as Kirstin cinema comes into the studio. We welcome KTAR news. He's walking around right now. Yeah. The Representative is is here in studio. We'll get her seated second. But it's it's interesting. Once again, here's Ston cinema well-known here in the valley, Martha mcsally well-known in southern Arizona who has done enough who is done the best job in getting that getting those votes. We'll see in November. But joining us now is the democratic candidate Kirstin cinema representatives cinema. Thank you for stopping by. And thank you for joining us. We know your schedule's very tight. It's great to be here. You guys. Did you guys? Did you trust up because I was coming in? I always look good. I think MAC dressed down a little bit because the baby had a little small injury today. A little spit. I always wear a collar. Always wear every we see you. All right. Just because you're coming in. I don't have a caller on. Now. Now are you wearing purple because Arizona's turning purple? That's my favorite color. Really? Yeah. Yeah. Did you say you were the purple purple shoes? Two favorite color? You are. You were purple at the debate with Martha mcsally that was more of a wine. Okay. But close, well, we're glad to have you. But climbs. Yeah. We're glad to have you here cinema in studio. So so let's let's let's figure out who's gonna win. Here's sally. Is it cinemas ask you that tough? I'm going to win. Didn't take long not. So so Representative cinema. Are you a democrat? I am proud democrat. I gosh, it's hard to say proud. I don't know that. I'm not sure that people are even proud of parties anymore because I feel like the parties are not doing a good job. So I would say that. I'm a proud Arizonan. That's something. I'm very proud of. And I'm proud of the work that I have done in Washington DC and the work I've done in the state Senate in the state house before going to congress, but I'm not particularly proud of the parties because in your ads it mostly doesn't. Well, actually, I don't think I've seen a de it doesn't is that on purpose. That's right because I am an independent voice for areas zones. I want folks to when they see my ads or hear from me or when I'm talking to them and listening to them. I want them to think about who. I am as their elected official and this their public servant. Okay. What are you thinking? I thought you would have totally dodged that question. I thought you would have said as a democrat. I believe in this. I believe in this. I believe in this that it wasn't so independent. Why is it so important to make that independent leap? Why not say I'm not affiliated with the Democratic Party run is an independent. Joe lieberman. And do it that way tried that. Once remember will true, but it's a different election. It's different time. But I I'm just surprised. Okay. Okay. And that's fair that's fair. But the the the knock I guess the knock against your campaign is that we haven't seen you out enough. We haven't you know, this is the first time we've we've talked to you during this campaign during this election is just talking August think we talked when McCain when McCain pass, but not not really about the election now. That's right. Definitely didn't speak campaigning. Right. Do you think people are saying, oh, you're hiding or you're not you're think so no, no? I've been spending my time going at literally every single day to different events where I'm listening to voters meeting voters. You guys, I'm sure stock me on Twitter. So you've probably seen those photos. I don't know. I don't know what you're talking about. So I, you know, I'm out every single day on talking listen to folks I was in Tucson all day yesterday. We're supposed to have a debate. Martha I in Tucson yesterday, and she decided not to do it. So I wanted to debate. Yes. I wanted one. I think we deserve to have a debate in both Phoenix and Tucson because folks in both major metropolitan areas the state deserve to have their own debate in the governor's race. They did a debate. Yes, it is in Tucson. So that's what I wanted to do democratic candidate narrows on a Senate race Representative Pearson cinema. Joining us in studio, can we get down to this pink to thing. Because this was an ad that I think was effective doesn't have to be wasn't nice. I mean, I'm not sitting here saying it was nice. But was okay. One. Can you take us back to what the real story is about that day when you were wearing a pink Tutu when do you regret it? Well, I say that fifteen years ago, I was opposed to the war and. This is the war in Iraq. Yes. Which is still happening. What's unfortunate about what Martha chose to do in that ad was to falsely alleged that I was protesting our troops. And that actually. That that bothered me because you guys know this my own brothers serve in the military. My big brother is a marine. He's now retired. He is the canine sergeant for the Tucson police department. And I couldn't be prouder than I am of him. And my little brother is still serving an active duty today. He's in the navy. He's a gunner's mate. He's deployed six times in this war six times in this war. So I was I felt like it was really unfair. And so did fact checkers. Three fact checkers said Martha's claim about Carson is false. I have never protest our troops because that's my own family. And as you guys know how seriously I take issue of taking care of our Veterans Day. Yes. Like you. I'm like a dog with a bone right to take care of the men and women who served our country. So what I thought was unfortunate about that about that ad. In addition to my hair was the was the the really the false allegation. Well, let me let me talk about your hair too. I thought and my wife brought this up to me. My wife was and truth be told my wife is very conservative from Wyoming very much. You know, we'll do it. We'll take care of it. Ourselves can do attitude. She was appalled that a woman attacked another woman based on their dress their appearance the hair the to to how how did how did you take that? Because I was surprised a woman would attack another woman based on looks or based on what they were wearing almost like a shame. Address shaming thing. Instead of saying here's cinema voted for this. I don't stand for this the pig to was brought up. How did how did you feel about that? Or did you? Did you get the same reaction that my wife had? I can't believe they're down down in the dirt with this. What she's wearing stuff Martha has chosen Toronto, very low road on this campaign. Her entire campaign has been focused on personal. Really smears against me and false attacks. And that's the road she's chosen. But even when I'm not on your show. You guys know that I I listen to you. So I know that you've talked about this before. And as you have no talked about the you mean the two to campaign. Yes. Yeah. Okay. And as you all have noted many times on your show. I don't campaign like that. Right. I don't do that was that was that a decision you made at the very beginning. Or is that something that evolved of okay? Do we fight back? Do we attack back or no what I believe in? I believe that you can have a difference of opinion with someone else. And you can do it politely. You can be respectful about it, and you can stay focused. Just like your wife said on the issues in the votes every time we have ever talked. We've agreed some of the time and we've disagreed sometime. But one thing I'll say I love coming on MAC and Gaydos, because it's gonna be respectful. We're polite to each other and our professional treat other. We have a little fun. We disagree. And we agree that is how our system should be. And I am disappointed very disappointed that Martha has chosen to run a campaign based on smears and false attacks. And we saw that most recently in the debate. Do you dislike mic? Sally. No, I don't. And in fact, before the Senate race she and I worked together on a lot of issues. We were both representing Arizona and work together on legislation. How about after the ads you sit at home, and you fuming from some of the ads that do. I look like, I'm fear. Don't but I'm not I understand that this is a political tactic that she's chosen. I am disappointed. By it. Because I think it lessens the importance of what we're doing and what we're talking about in this country real Arizonans have real needs right now. They're not getting what they need or what they deserve from our government. What she's chosen to do in the campaign doesn't answer any questions or concerns? Meanwhile, I'm like, let's get you some healthcare. Let's figure out how to get educated. Let's take care of our veterans. So I'm staying focused on the issues laser focused, and she's over there doing these increasingly desperate activities when we come back. We've got you for one more quick segment. Arizona has taken in hundreds of asylum seekers. What do you want to see happen and should anything be changed? We'll talk Arizona with Pearson cinema next..

He said, no, he's fine Stanton spoke to his early today. Maybe fifteen minutes. Maybe we'll talk about if anyone has had a situation like this and Arizona have you ever been confronted by somebody holding you up not with a hatchet necessarily. But if you think that story was weird, right? I didn't think we could top that story, but we have Kirstin cinema. According to the Washington Examiner at of Washington DC, and I don't I don't think I believe this yet. This somebody's gotta prove this to me emails. Emails conclude that Kirstin cinema. Invited a prominent group of feminist witches in Arizona called pagan cluster pagan cluster to celebrate International Women's Day and to protest the war in March of two thousand three. So here we go again with going back into Kirstin cinemas past right? Let's see in two thousand eleven. She said why there are some crazy. Arizona Republicans who are running Arizona. And by the way, she's one hundred percent, right. And some people didn't like that. But I mean, we've got some whacko Republicans here in Arizona in office. So he gets worse. It gets worse than hanging out with witches code with the w by the way, which is where the w code pink. Protesters wore pink, obviously enough. It's the pink thing again. But cinema encouraged the witches to wear colorful, clothing and come ready to dance, comma, twirl, comma and stay in touch with your inner creativity and with the earth. Is. Really the cinema campaign would not say why she invited the witches or clarify the members of the occult deserve table. Discussing concerning warranties. Wait, look. I mean, it's two thousand three. Okay. I look which is MAC witches. So what tala we's well? It wasn't back in two thousand three when this happened. It was March of two thousand exactly that's that. That is the beginning of spring in the pagan holiday calendar. One of the biggest celebrations festivals. Okay. Last week. We talked about Hagan cluster last week. I ever have a biological child. I'm going to name it paid lost her pagan cluster Watson first name pagan last name cluster. Now, I named pagan middle middle name cluster last name clus Dotson. Oh, gee, I was thinking of. Yeah. That's that'll be the kids nicknames muster. Yeah. Right now. Let's not go there. No. So last week we're talking about a Mailer that went out. And it said if you elect Cureton cinema doesn't keep Harrison a safe, she doesn't keep Arizona safe. And then you turn it just a little bit. Like, a hologram Arizona's blown up it's under a mushroom cloud mushroom cloud. This thing is gotten out of hand. If this is the only thing that you have to lobby against Kirstin cinema. Does she's hanging out with witches or that? Yes. Hanging out with which you she wore pink Tutu, I thought which is black. No, no. I know he's Email them to wear colorful clothing. But I thought you had to wear black most which is actually where white. Well, well, I dated a girl was long time ago exchange student. She was a witch a wiccan she was a wiccan a wiccan a wiccan it lasted like two weeks. Because she always put a Hex on me. Yeah. You know what I'm talking about? No doubt. Yeah. Don't point to people. What are you? What is it a wiccan? I got Wickenburg now. Now, W I C C A. Not w I c k. It is a pagan witchcraft, right? But they're in a good magic contemporary pagan new religious movement. Yeah. It was developed in England right during the first half of the twentieth century. She put a spell on me to get that one. Yeah. What? Joe pointing the people look all I know is I hope they bring this up on the debate tonight. Mix. Sally wearing your pig to to call on all the witches around. Are we going to hear? Are we going to hear that that they're not going to bring this up? You think they're going to bring this up? You listen them is gonna arrive on a room. Pagan cluster Hagan cluster, if you're just joining us, and you're wondering what the hell is going on. This is stupid, the Washington Examiner put out a an article, and it said that feminist which is in Arizona called. He lost. There were hanging out with Kirstin cinema of two thousand three she invited him to a rally to. For not not only International Women's Day. I get it. But also to protest the war. But it says the witches in question it should be noted plane to practice only non-violent magic. Yeah. Yeah. There's this stuff. Remember, there's there's bad magic the wicked witch of the what what Becky Lynn, the wicked witch of the west. Yes, it's the west not the east east is good. Linda divall on the bad the bad which. The wall. And that's. Which which one was all. Sister her sister. Her sister, the wicked witch of the north this is stupid. Right, right. I don't like I don't I don't like witches or voodoo that stuff. We weirds me out. I'm just talking about that stuff. The magic stuff makes me creepy. Okay. Is this really going to lose an election for Kirstin cinema? I don't this is the only thing they've gotten her past. And by God, I'm surprised they haven't we had never heard anything remotely like this from Carson cinema about Dirk being dug up or anything. I mean, really you never hear anything bad about Houston cinema. Well, some people just scandal know some people don't like her position. That's. That's fine. But he thinks he's a phony or there's no there's no like weird. She's a whiz fear. Now. She's now she's hanging out with a cluster of pagans cluster pagan cluster pagan cluster, I think it's stupid. It is almost as stupid as the Mailer with the new with the nuclear loafer Pearson cinema. Arizona goes by so, yeah, I think this is what it proves to me. They are looking into or past for anything. Right. Who bring up and throw at the wall and see what sticks. I mean. You know, we she let me let me play this one. This was the meth lab thing. This is stupid. This is stupid. Here. We go. I don't know Kirstin cinema said this like ten years ago seeing this very quote that the states are the laboratories of.
"kirstin" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Cinemas kind of been m I a I mean, she appeared on Arizona's morning news for about three minutes, we've invited her on many times over the past couple of months. We haven't heard back. Right. She don't see her as much she's not publicly out in the public the public. I if you will Martha mcsally he's come in studio. Martha mcsally does interviews. It'll be interesting to see when they debate later this month does cinema go out just scorched earth policy down by six points, or whatever in the latest poll, do I attack or do? I just play it safe and play it straight down the line. Visit working for you. I think so far not good. If you believe this poll ranked six MC Sally. You would cure cinema would have to ask yourself. It it working right now. I got to tell you. I know that we know. I mean, this is pretty honest. We know not us. But I think the valley knows more about cinema then mic. Sally. Okay. That's fair. That's fair. Because I think well MC Sally has been down in Tucson represented southern Arizona. Kirstin cinema started locally here and has and represents Aaron Shona here now, but it's big Sally, that's attacking Kirstin cinema. It's Mick Sally that's out on the campaign trail. It's mixed. Sally that is visible and Curson cinema. She's hiding and she doesn't wanna talk, and she doesn't want to give up that much information. And I don't wanna make a mistake. You know, what happens when you when you play not to win you usually don't wind up winning because you're playing offensive. You're not playing offensive play not to lose. Yes. She's playing not too low and usually lose she's got to get more aggressive. And you know, what she's got us. What people like about her? And that's her personality. She doesn't she. We don't see. You're very often. We see her ads on television. And they're all nice and all it's a nice add. Then you see MC Sally. And it's just like I'm gonna I'm gonna burn you burn you at the stake. I mean, they're totally two different campaigns. But you when your Martha mcsally, and you call out Kirstin cinnamon or read in a pink Tutu that seems to be working. I'm tougher than hasn't really responded except to say, well, that's not accurate. I'm sorry. She did that. Or I, you know, she didn't go on the attack saying we'll Martha mcsally fill in the blank, right? She didn't respond with a with a with a with an ad like that. She's trying to play the victim at least in trying to play it safe in my opinion. And and again, if you believe the poll, I much more inclined to believe Doug ducey's, double digit lead over David Garcia than I am this poll. Martha I believe Martha mcsally could be in the lead. But it could be by twenty points. It could be by two. I don't know. It's been one poll so far. But if I'm curious in cinemas people, hey, maybe maybe I weak wake that sleeping bear. Maybe I get her out of hibernation, and maybe we see or more. Maybe she talks more. No big story. One is Martha mcsally plus six and a new poll for most of this year. Polls have shown democratic candidate Christon cinema ahead of Republican Martha mcsally but with election day just four weeks away. It looks like the tables turned local race with national implications and high costs when you have tens of millions of dollars spent in this being the most expensive race in the history of Arizona. You're now seeing. This race is gonna come down to the wire who's raising more money. Didn't we say see the other day cinema raised a few million dollars today? Yeah. So is that going to feed the ad campaign in the next couple of weeks because again, we're about twenty seven twenty six days out from the midterm election. The other thing too is that this is the most expensive and a critical key for the president. And for the Republicans a key race, right? Where's Barack Obama where where the big time? Heavy hitters from the Democratic Party. Where's Bill Clinton coming coming out coming to Arizona doing the tour? Stop if I'm Kirsten cinema. I'm I'm asking them to come out. We haven't heard boo we haven't heard boo about either Barack Obama even first lady Michelle Obama, if she were to want to Girardin anybody would should come out. We haven't heard or seen anybody. Yes, over so who's coming out from Sally. Okay. Mic. Sally's got at mosh at the end of this or I'm sorry. And this week Mitt Romney, and George W Bush sometime this month. Month. Pretty good heavy hitters and supposedly if you listen to Jan brewer, and Martha mcsally Trump will be here before the election. I don't think MC Sally wants to be on stage with them. She'll she told us that's not the case. Same with governor Ducey. I don't think he wants to be on stage with Trump, but there are other Republicans that are coming out and supporting their candidates. We haven't seen anybody in the Democratic Party. I think what one Castro the former guy from HUD is coming out for David Garcia. That's not the brightest democratic star. If you're a democrat in this state, you need Joe Biden, you need a I don't know Nancy Pelosi or Bernie Sanders or or Barack Obama so far. We haven't seen any of those people mix. Sally plus six you were talking about the governor's race. It's Ducey by at least twelve that racist. Probably over today. We were supposed to have David Garcia in studio. And the they build on us. And they still haven't given us a reason why nor follow update now have offered a followup date. They haven't responded. No. So so why don't we go down that road? It's not just us. You know, we've had mix Allen studio. We've had Ducey in studio a number of times. Yeah. But cinema and Garcia. You don't hear a lot? I don't get that. Why is that? I don't get that. It's not anything. I don't have a chance. It's not win show. It's all about us because it's not. But but they're not out there. You know what? I mean, they're not in the public. I know they're really not right into every. And it's not as though I mean, Kirstin cinema and MC Sally have been tighter deadlocked. It's not that. She just threw in the towel and said, well, I don't have a chance cinema has a chance. David Garcia, blew it. He had a chance and blew it. Would he said what he said about the wall and about ice, but cinema hasn't made a misstep or said anything. She just hasn't said anything. She hasn't been out there. You can't run for Senate in Arizona. And not talk to the people. We'll say what you said in the office because I thought that was that was pretty profound. I don't know. They work for us. Why talking to us rights they work for us the voters, and yet Kirstin cinema doesn't talk to this is that this week on this show was supposed to be about Guber. Gubernatorial candidates coming on? And it's Doug Ducey sitting down for forty five minutes with us. And he's telling you. What he thinks. And how he's thinking you you get to understand where he's coming from. And it was supposed to be Garcia this week here on the show same thing, and they cancelled and I'm just wondering how silly do you have to be to cancel on the biggest talk show four weeks away from an election and you down twelve points. What you would think he'd you grieving from the top of a building in downtown Phoenix. You know? So I don't know. Maybe Arizona Republicans are feeling pretty good, and they're going out and talking to everybody, and you see him on TV and your urine them on the radio and they're on the street, and you hear him talking to people and the Democrats nothing if Kirstin cinemas in hiding David Garcia doesn't want to do an interview. And now now you've got at least the latest polls Republicans are winning Democrats are losing. Kirstin cinema needs to up. Yeah. I don't I don't think you can win a Senate race by by trying to run out the clock. And that's what she's done. That's what it seems like all right? You're listening to the big four at four. We've got four big blockbuster stories rolling through one. So we got to go big story. Two three and four and a second. All right. Becky Lynn is on Arizona's news station. KTAR news flash. At four fifteen. I'm Becky Lynn with three things you need to know.
