C s congressional correspondent Rachel Scott reports It's not because of funding. Millions of Americans could be kicked out of their homes as soon as Sunday because Washington has failed to extend the moratorium on evictions.

The Cider-Sipping, Mitten-Wearing Guide To 2020 Holiday Movies
"Guys it's my d-. I work with amy on the bobby bones show. I'm a head writer and producer over there and also have a podcast in my own called movie. Mike's movie podcast or all. I do is talk about movies. I explore movie topics. i do. Movie reviews and sometimes bring on actors and directors to talk about their movies. So what i wanted to bring to. This episode is my holiday watching movie guide so i have five different categories with five different movies. You can add to your watching playlists. I know it's only november. But i feel like we've pretty much gone straight into christmas holiday mode right now so these are some great movies to go ahead and put on your list in the first category. Let's go with the favorite old school classic. And i'm to have to give it to the original. Og christmas movie. A christmas story from nineteen eighty-three. It's a movie. Probably all grew up watching and at this point we can kind of just have it on in the background and it just gives us that christmas feeling. They're just so many classic moments in classic quotes from this. A christmas story also had the eighty nine percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's not available to stream anywhere right now but if you want to rent it. It's on amazon for three ninety nine. And then if you have cable subscription service you can usually catch it on pbs or stream. It their on demand. And i feel like when it comes to having a classic. You can't go wrong with the christmas story. Only i didn't say fudge. I said the word the big one. The queen mother of dirty words dash dash dash next up. I had the category of the best modern classics. So i feel like this is a movie been around long enough but it's still relatively new and it's a movie now. That actually came out seventeen years ago. So i feel like it's so far stood the test of time and i don't really seeing any point to where this movie will not be a part of my christmas and if you haven't seen it at this point well i don't know what you're waiting for. I don't know where you've been in the movie. I'm talking about is l. It has eighty four percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's currently not available to watch anywhere for free but you can read it on amazon for three ninety nine and if you happen to have a stars direct tv subscription you can watch it there. And the thing. I love about this movie that everybody i talked you kind of has their own favourite part of the movie. My favorite part is when buddy the elvis. I leaving to go find his dad and he's saying goodbye to everybody to hope you find your dad. Thanks in our wall. All right the next category is the unconventional christmas movie. I think every year people had a debate on what is an isn't a christmas movie. Several different movies kind of fit into this category. But one i feel that kinda gets left out in the discussion. Every year is harry potter. And the sorcerer's stone now all throughout the harry potter series. I feel like christmas is a pretty big part of it. And not only that. But i feel like christmas scenes. In harry potter are just some of the most magnificently done christmas. Any christmas movie. And i don't know why they get left out of that conversation. The bad thing about the harry potter movies is they are pretty much taken off of any kind of streaming service and you can really only rent them on amazon for three ninety nine but the first one does have eighty one percent rating on rotten tomatoes. If you haven't seen it yet. And i know overall christmas is pretty small. Part of the entire franchise. But harry potter at one point does get the visibility cloak as a christmas gift and therefore i'm dubbing get a christmas movie christmas happy christmas next category. I wanna do favorite rated r. movies. So this is christmas louise for adults so kids. If you're listening you can't watch these movies and parents. I feel like these were made for. Maybe some of us. Who don't necessarily enjoy christmas movies. And just want something to make you laugh. That just has a little bit of christmas in it. Because i know sometimes christmas movies get a little bit cheesy and my all time. Favorite rated r. christmas movie is bad. Santa it literally makes me laugh out loud. And i know it's incredibly rajini incredibly inappropriate. But i love billy bob thornton and even in the crudeness and the rudeness of this movie i do feel like it has a lot of heart and if he can get through the dirty jokes and the bad language you do find a pretty nice christmas story here and bad. Santa has a seventy eight percent rating on rotten tomatoes. And as of right now you would have to pay to ninety nine to streaming on amazon. But i know once it gets closer to christmas. It has popped up on netflix. Maybe check for it. There later was gonna make some sandwiches. I could make you one before you leave. Okay maybe some sandwiches harshest. You want the usual amount. Just whatever you think. Okay right in the last category. I want to get to is a favourite new christmas movie. And i'm gonna go with the holiday. Would you can watch now on net flicks and a little bit of a warning. It is kind of raunchy and crude. Just like the bad santa movie but if you're into movies like bridesmaids or the hangover i feel like it's kind of in that category so it's emma roberts and luke bracy who is australia and he's kind of like the kmart version of chris hemsworth and they come up with this plan to be each other's dates for only the holidays. So let's be only time they ever get together so it starts at christmas goes through all the holidays in the united states and then ends up back at christmas and if you guessed at home that they ended up developing feelings for each other throughout this plane to be each other's holiday. Will you guessed correctly but again. That doesn't spoil. The movie is basically in the trailer. And it's basically what every kind of cheesy romantic comedy. Christmas movie plot is about. But i think overall this movie just makes you kind of turn your brain off and enjoy a nice holiday movie. And isn't that what we all need right now. All right. that's your holiday movie guide if you enjoyed that segment and want to hear more about movies to check out my podcast movie. Mike's movie podcast. Just search movie mike.

34. Lets talk about save-a-dive kits and Healthways an original scuba equipment provider - burst 6
"Several months ago, I did a segment on voight. One of the original five scuba equipment manufacturers in the United States. As a reminder, those original five were decor. US, divers swim master Voi-, and health ways, and we know that void bought swim master in the early nineteen sixties. Today. I want to continue the discussion on these original five with a look at health ways. My research took me on some interesting twists and turns. A relay what I pieced together. But I'll caution. The things might not been. Things may have been a little bit different than what I present here. First. Let's talk about the founder of health ways. That was Richard Klein. Richard was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six in Maine. And he enlisted in the marine. Corps at the age of fourteen. Back then I guess you could get away with lying about your age. While he was in the Marines Richard studied calisthenics in bodybuilding. and. When he was discharged, he ended up in Atlantic city acting as a strong man. That's when he was discovered by a paramount pictures executive who brought him out west to the paramount studios where his job was to make. The movie stars Look Fit. While in his job, at Paramount Richard Started, a company called health ways. Hollywood and Nur tagline was America's way to health. The company had a wider range of fitness equipment and early nine thousand nine hundred fifties. They had water sports. Department that included things like Basques spear guns. And Fins and they called the Finns Webbie's. In one thousand, nine, hundred fifty four health ways obtain distribution rights to the LG. Declare regulator. If you WANNA learn more about LG Arpan. There's a great article in one of the old journal of diving histories by I'd liberal shelf. You can go and do some research on that. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, six, Richard Hired, Richard, E. Dick Anderson to establish a scuba equipment department. Diver Dick Anderson is interesting, Pioneer and scuba, and I'll probably have to do a podcast just on his accomplishments. They're pretty extensive. Diver. Dick also brings on Sam Lecoq to help him design house ways own regulator. They introduce their double hose regulator and name Scuba. I guess the copyrighted the name. Scuba I read somewhere that because of this copyright. US divers had to go with the term aqualung. The scuba regulator was produced between nineteen, Fifty, seven and nineteen fifty-nine. During this time both Dick Anderson and Sam la coke had left health ways. Sam Start at sports ways another manufacturer and produced a regulator that he called water lung. The water long. Caused some litigation with US divers because they were using the term aqualung. Don't know how that turned out. By one, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight Dick Anderson rejoined health ways, and he was the chief engineer of research. By nineteen sixty, the company was producing a new model called Scuba Deluxe. Health wise also developed scuba. Pack Harness. The Scuba Star Scuba air in something called the snark. Air SORTA like a snorkel with a pony bottle on it. By nine, hundred, sixty two. It looked like the company was developing a line for professionals called scuba pro. Well Richard Klein hired Bonin and Gustav Delay To head. Up this line. But. Unfortunately health ways went into bankruptcy on December nineteen, sixty two. And you'll find Dick Bonin and Gustav Della Vella Bought Scuba Pro for one dollar. And started what we now know today as scuba pro. But wait, there's more. And this is where things get a little hard to reconcile. Richard Klein unfortunately died in nineteen, sixty three. But health wage did not. According to Alec Pearce on one of these youtube videos, health ways continue to make regulators for scuba pro. I tried to find out more about the bankruptcy, and it took me to a document from the Small Business Investment Company Program from August one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty three. Near as an entry that shows health ways of having sales of two point, nine million dollars with ninety six employees and a prophet of twenty, one thousand eight hundred dollars. It looks like they got some investment money and statement said they were on the road to profitability and operating in the black. Somewhere along the way health ways was acquired by elden industries in Los Angeles. From what I gather Eldin was a may have been a toy company, and it's really hard to find out information about them. In any event, the last thing I could trace was nineteen seventy-one Scuba Cadillac from health ways that showed it as being a subsidiary of elden. I also read along the way that they sold scuba equipment to sears Kmart nine, thousand, nine hundred seventy S. I wasn't able to actually nail down when health ended. So my journey to find out more about one of these original five US scuba manufacturers provided some fascinating twists and turns and Lake Oj all journeys I passed a few interesting side roads. Some I went down. And others yet to be explored. Hope. You enjoy this look at health ways.
Viral hit: the costs of Chinas lockdown
"The corona virus continues to spread around the world and has now been found in every mainland province. China infections have been found in at least fifteen eighteen other countries in all. They're already more cases than there. Were in the two thousand. Two outbreak of the related SARS virus international responses are wrapping up this morning. Russia's prime minister said the country would be closing its border with China authorities in Australia and Britain have quarantined returning travellers to British Airways and other airlines have canceled flights altogether into and out of China. Today the World Health Organization will meet to discuss whether the outbreak constitutes a global health. Emergency in any case. It's certainly a national one. So I am in China We have had thirty eight more deaths today So we're now two hundred seventy the dead. David Rennie is our Beijing bureau chief and has been visiting villages on the edge of WHO bay the province. which is the epicenter of the outbreak? We have seven thousand dozens seven hundred cases worldwide which almost all of them are here in China they are also being found now. In more than a dozen countries mostly people people traveling from China while sick and turning up in those countries we have evacuation flights going on. We've had the French due to leave today. The Americans left recently recently the Japanese. There's a problem with the fight for British nationals in the epicenter city of Wuhan where the Chinese are playing very hardball as far as we can telling if say the wife of a British businessman also has a Chinese nationality with a child has both nationals. Not letting them leave. Because China in some ways seems to feel he is one of the artery evacuating foreigners as if they can't be trusted to look after them and so the the entire province of who bay is essentially on lockdown. What does is that actually look like on the ground? It's very strange. This is kind of the Chinese Christmas. It's still lunar New Year Villages should be full of people back home from the cities to see their families. I should kids everywhere because school is out. But it's supposed to be a ghost town as you start driving even to ask down away from the WHO bay border. Each village on the roads down has has blocked the entrances with kind of pause model concrete. Pipes there are people guarding villages. Telling people to stay out when you get close to the border there. Police checkpoints are medics six in protection. Suits mosques goggles taking. Everyone's temperature and that's a pretty tense. Because if you're running a fever any reason at all then you could be stuck in two weeks according to you in the nearest Chinese hospital and so how are the people in those border areas dealing with it. How are they feeling about this? Strange situation well. Although from the outside this kind of massive quarantine which is now basically trapped tens of millions of Chinese people in their own homes from the outside that looks draconian and slightly scary strangely. Strange when you're on the ground actually the idea that they can do something anything to keep themselves safe by shutting foreigners out of the village or keeping their kids locked up inside is almost a source of comfort Kmart so one of the strangest place I went was the very last village are before you get the WHO bay border. It's a pretty scruffy village. It's just off the laws motorway exit and they have about two hundred people who have come home for Spring Festival from the city of Wuhan. Outbreak is at its most intense and so they have all been placed on lockdown at home. There are signs in the street saying they may not go out. They can't see relatives. They can't visit friends. I met about Mr Deng. He's a farmer a wheat farmer Vondra show in town and he has two little grandkids and they were kind of peeking their heads out of the front door of his scruffy farmhouse. But he would not let them on the street even though they should be out playing because it's the biggest holiday of the year and he said that you know of course fools. Everyone is worried because from that place you can even into Hubay so the idea is just across the horizon. Has everyone very image. So it's only in an authoritarian country like Mike Chinaware. That kind of lockdown can be done but I mean by the way you described it. It sounds as if it's working with the public. It has the kind of caution that is the suits this situation. So it's It gives people comfort. So He's supposed to the party secretary of the Village Way g he writes the border. The borough who you know. He has the comfort of of paperwork. which if you're a bureaucrat is is what you want? So he has been gene quarantining everyone in the village who came from the city of Wuhan. They're having the temperature taken twice a day. They reported that back up. The next level of government. There's notices. He's on every shop front telling people don't go out. Don't see strangers keep outside as a way so that is the comfort and there's a medical reason that if you stop what people having lots of contact you avoid big crowds that can at least delay the peak of an epidemic which gives you know the people developing vaccines somewhere in a laboratory far away a bit more time but I think you will see outside. Experts say this kind of really blunderbuss lock. Everyone in the whole area in their houses. Approach isn't isn't how you basically stop these things that actually in richer western countries the approach is much more targeted. You literally try and find the people who are infected and then you have these disease disease detectives who try and track everyone that they have met and that is how you stop an infection. That problem with is really tra- coenen approaches. That you frightened people who who might not want to get put an clinic. You flight frighten them and they go into hiding in one of the big promises announced this shutdown says you've ruined city eleven million people but then there was a bit of a delay and so perhaps a million people just disappeared between the announcement and the lockdown. And that's not what you want and so all told how. How prepared would you say the Chinese authorities were for this et relative to for instance the the SARS outbreak in two thousand two? So that's a very low all because back in two thousand to two thousand three when we had this other new virus saws. China spent several months just basically lying through its teeth and denying that this was a problem at all and that led to really hundreds of avoidable. Deaths it was a really disgraceful time. When you had doctors tried to tell the truth getting punished getting getting silenced? China clearly is trying to behave very differently. This time. They've identified the virus they are dealing with the international health organizations like the. Who but there are still question marks about why it took several weeks for the authorities in the main epicentres Wuhan to admit that there was human to human transmission mission. There was a real shortage of testing kits so I think that the verdict is still out on whether China should be praised or criticized for where is handling as well either way the the effect of essentially shutting down entire cities provinces scaring people into their homes even far from the epicenter. That's got ought to have huge effects on on the economy. Certainly the numbers are really really dramatic. I mean basically I mean this is for example. You can go buy sector-by-sector all all major. Tourist sites are closed at the busiest time of the year. This should be the biggest time of the year. For box office takings in cinemas eleven thousand cinemas in China are closed should be a time for massive sporting events. I mean it's like Thanksgiving or Christmas in America. That's this time of year everything's closed and so you're seeing economic predictions that the next GP numbers could see two percent. Growth is one of the numbers. We've seen thrown out there now. We haven't seen two percent growth in China since at the time of chairman mouse. You know they've been doing six seven percent growth in recent times so that'd be an extraordinary hit. Now that all depends really does of does. Does this knock. You know the the global economy six. It really depends how long this outbreak loss so remember that outbreak of Saws Two thousand to two thousand and three which killed nearly eight hundred people. People there was a very very shop. Hit the China's economy but it bounced back because it didn't last that long and then there was a lot of delayed spending and and on a consumption kicked back up this time round of the Chinese economy is a huge amount. Bigger this time round Chinese consumers Chinese tourists wrists a much more important. factor in global economic growth. So there's a lot of people who if China just disappears from global global economic growth this year people in a lot of countries against take a

"It's been a few days since my last episode and really glad to be back here this is a topic this really near and. Dear to my heart because I remember what it's like to be s starting podcast or yes it's been six years. Now it's been a while but I remember what that was like and I remember that there were a lot of decisions to make. There were a lot of things to consider and even though when I started, I had somebody kind of guiding my path. If you will one of those decisions that I kinda struggled with was media hosting, how much I was willing to pay for podcast hosting because like many other starting podcasters I was on a budget I had a limited amount of money to spend, and so I was making decisions based on. I perceived to be value for money. So how much upload could I get for? How much I was willing to spend because most of the media host at that time you paid for a certain amount per month of upload or you paid for bandwith repaid for something and so it was kind of doing that math and it was a hard decision. So I'm going to share my thoughts with you today with the your starting podcast or or an experienced podcast I'm. Hoping that there's GonNa be something here for you today for the starting podcast. I'm hoping that this will bring a little bit of clarity to the decision making process and for those of us that have been around for a while maybe some of the way that I think about this will help you as you try to communicate these kinds of things to other people. Now I don't for a minute suppose that I have all of the answers so if you have any. Additional commentary I'd love to hear that you can have that in the comments on this episode I'd love to hear from you as I told you in the Intro I do believe that you should pay for your podcast hosting for your media hosting. Yes I remembered. What's like I? Remember sitting down with a limited amount of money thinking okay. Should I go with Lipson her blueberry? Each one gives me this much and ended up making a call based on one recommendation. and to how much I could get from my money how much upload I could get my money but I think that I was thinking about it a little bit incorrectly because I was kind of viewing it as a commodity kind of the idea that well, all media Sir essentially the same. So just pick the one that you like and on one level. That's that's okay. It is a bit of a commodity however I would also say and I would even argue that. You're media hosting and your RSS feed are the two most important technological aspects of your show that you can own. Yes. The software, the issues to produce matters, your websites, matter your skills as a host and as a producer matter, the the podcast apps that people listened through those matter although you don't actually own those but none of that stuff matters if you don't have a way. To get your show to your audience and that's what the media hosting in the RSS feed are in my mind at work in supply chain for my day job I worked for a large pet food company, and so I I tend to think of things like that. So I'm going to kind of share my thoughts based on how a supply chain works. So if you think about the Process of producing your show. I would think of that lake manufacturing you take all the raw materials you take all of the different ingredients who mix them together you apply some kind of technology in some kind of process and you create your product your show you've got that shiny new show that you want to get out there and you have an audience, you have consumers or customers. Or people out there who are looking for the kind of thing that you do, and so they go to the various places that they can get this. This might be similar to a retailer maybe Amazon or maybe Walmart or Kmart or some of Kmart Mart. Yeah. Some other store out there. So that's what they're going to get the show. It's show up sort of on the shelves if. You will for them in their favorite podcast APP but you still have to get the show that you've made from manufacturing the place that you made it to where the listeners are. GonNa. Get it to where that retailer if you will is going to be and the way that you do, that would be your distribution network you're part of that distribution network and in this model your. Media hosting the place where you actually host the files would be like warehousing. That's where you make sure that your files are available. So when somebody makes that call and they say, I, WANNA listen to this show it's available for them, and then the other thing would be the RSS feed, which is like the distribution network. So the way that you get things out there it's like your. Transportation. So if you have a show that you've made and the files aren't available somewhere for some reason whether it's because the media hosts that you chose has gone out of business or they've had some kind of interruption or something people can't get that. Similarly the RSS feed the thing that makes it available in their favorite podcast APP even if the files are there if there's something. Wrong with that feed, then they're also not going to get your show. So in my mind in terms of technology, the place you keep your files and the way that you get it to people's favorite podcast apps are the most important things that you can have. People can change. APPs they do it all the time. In fact I did it I used to use an APP called downcast. Like overcast I'm trying out Castro in new APPs a lot of the time because I like to check out the new stuff and Kinda stay up on that people can switch that all the time and they can take your show with them. You can change the way that you make your show, but unless you can't produce your show at all, you have the ability to make it available. But if something goes wrong with the way that you're holding the files that are done and the way to get it out to people, your listeners are sunk. They're not going to get it

We're GONNA get it to her that retailer if you will is going to be and the way that you do that would be your distribution network. You're part of that distribution network and in this model your media hosting the place where you actually host the files would be like warehousing. That's where you make sure that your files are available so when somebody makes that call and they say I wanNA WANNA listen to this show. It's available for them and then the other thing would be the RSS feed which is like the distribution network. So the way that you get things out there it's like is your transportation so if you have a show that you've made and the files aren't available somewhere for some reason whether it's because the media hosts that you chose has gone out of business or they've had some kind of interruption or something people can't get that similarly the RSS feed the thing that makes it available in their favorite podcast APP up even if the files are there. If there's something wrong with that feed then they're also not going to get your show so in my mind in terms of technology the place you keep your files els and the way that you get it to people's favorite podcast apps are the most important things that you can have. People can change APPs they do it all the time. In fact I did it. I used to use an APP called downcast now I like overcast. I'm trying out Castro in new APPS A lot of the time because I like to check out the new stuff and Kinda stay up on that people can switch that all all the time and they can take your show with them. You can change the way that you make your show but unless you can't produce your show at all you have the ability to make it available global but if something goes wrong with the way that you're holding the files that are done and the way to get it out to people. Your listeners are sunk. They're not going to get it now. Maybe it sounds like turning into a tired old guy. I don't know maybe I am but the thing is in my mind this really matters. I think it's incredibly credibly important. Especially if you view your show as something that's valuable as an asset as something that matters to the people that are listening or that's something that matters to you. If it matters to you I think of it as an asset and I think that the way that you treat it and the way that you make it available for people really matters I really do think that. And so in most instances instances. I think that it's critically important. You've that you pay for your media hosting and for your RSS Feed. However I do think there are some instances when free makes sense so share those with you because ultimately I'm not GonNa make that decision for you? You're the person that has to choose because it's your show so when does free make sense. I think free makes sense. When you're just kicking the tires you just want to give it a whirl you wanna give it a try? I think that free makes sense. When you're making a show that you intend to be disposable a show that you don't intend to have a long run that you don't want to maintain and archive that you don't want to leave it out there? You want it to be a short run show and then you want it to go away. I think in that instance. It probably makes sense. Or if you're just testing something out you're trying it out and you think that maybe it'll turn into something but you don't have a lot of probability in that instance maybe free make sense but if your show matters to you and if your show matters to your audience in your audience matters to you I would suggest that you go with a reputable host with a track record and a service agreement that you're paying for so that you can help. Keep them in business. That's my opinion. That's what I think that you should do. I think that there are instances where free make sense but if your show matters to you and you want it to turn into something. I recommend that you go ahead and find a media hosts that you're paying for that you I believe will do the very best for you and keep your show available without interruption.
Stop Dieting to Lose Weight
"Dieting to lose weight since the early nineteen fifties. We have just been inundated with this information information to eat. Low Fat Foods. Count calories eat low calorie and dieters are always told to kind of follow this approach and it's really lacking its first of all it's lacking in key nutrients and for a lot of people it can be like a starvation plan. So how did that workout not great because again more people are overweight and obese than ever before. So I'll introduce myself in. They my co-host. My name is Kara. Harper I'm a licensed nutritionist. I have a master's degree and holistic health and I'm also a certified nutrition specialist and really excited to be here today with my co host and weight loss. Expert Nell calls. Oh expert Bird now you who are the year the testimony to nutritional weight and wellness who lost ninety pounds eight years ago. You've been able to maintain that ninety pound weight loss us by eating real food. Yes and now as you know less than ten percent of people who lose weight keep the weight off. So you're the you're the Unicorn. Yeah we were just talking right UNICORNS. That's really what you've accomplished is amazing. And and you should be very very proud of yourself and maybe even you should be written up in a weight loss book I know you're a testimonial to our company. Absolutely maybe that's good enough now. I put my energy there so yeah I don't yeah. Thank you so much for that. That phenomenal intro Boost to my my ego this morning but I don't think being featured in a weight loss book is is necessary. I just want to you know for are you within the sound of my voice inspire you to give up dieting and eat real food several times a day to lose weight. That's a different message. Then you've probably heard this time of year no more starving yourself. It is a known fact that as we get older and I am getting older older our metabolism slows down more and more every year. I also know that eating protein several times a day boosts my metabolism for a few hours so I practice eating grass fed protein several times a day to keep that fire stoked to keep my metabolism fired up. Now I think our listeners would love to know what is and one of your biggest struggles maintaining the ninety pound weight loss. So I guess it's it's one thing and we'll get into a little bit later about the weight loss. Yeah but what is what is it like with the weight maintenance phase. Yeah we were just talking about this before or the show that the biggest struggle is not to get back into that. Dieting thought pattern which you would think after eight years of losing the weight and then keeping it off that I would have broken through that and I have but really that those. Those messages are very sticky for people because low calorie and and low fat eating slowdown. My metabolism and it's really challenging. I think this time of year to not see some of the ads coming out and you you know they're they're everywhere they're on facebook. They're on TV. That say you know we have the answer. Low Fat low calorie eating. But I want to tell you before I came to nutritional weight and wellness. I had many years of dieting and with each of those diets that are being advertised. Soul readily right. Now I did lose weight but I quickly gained that weight back and even more so I would get this quick hitting saying it was always twelve pounds for me so I would immediately start to feel better. Feel like my pants are getting better And it was within a few weeks or months that I would be heavier than before so I would get that quick hitting. Hey you know this is working and what was so cruel about what it is that it would come right back on as soon as I because what what they don't tell you is that you're losing water and you're losing muscle. Aw and be so frustrating when you have that you know first little bit of success and then it starts to stop and then and you start gaining and you start gaining more than before. So how did I gain that hundred ninety to one hundred pounds is because I would go on those diets and then I would gain you know twenty pounds More than before. So you do that. You know I say fifteen times and twenty seven my twenty five years of dieting. You know that extra twenty pounds ten twenty pounds at the end of each of those Yoyo. Diets is GONNA add up. Sure sure and and also we know just bio uh-huh chemically With all the training nutrition training that we've had that that really impairs metabolism kind of that the ups and downs the spikes and the losses awesome. Yeah right yes very very frustrating. Now how old were you when you first started dieting and then I mean you might have already answered this in your her in the last segment but did you lose any way like the very first time that you started dieting. Yeah and it was because I was twelve I could have done just about anything anything and and lost weight but that was the first year I went to weight watchers. I had to be I had to be Sponsored by somebody because I I was so young so my mom took me. I was desperate. I was coming into my eighth grade year and I was the Chubby kid so depressed and I did ED lose weight But I had a miserable summer and I actually just just recalled the story of being there used to be a kmart in Burnsville and we were my mom and I were walking into the Kmart and I had been you know really existing on Tuna with no Mayo just just plain tuna And Lettuce and really starving myself. I took it too far and I hated K.. Mart parking lot so talk about biochemical damage. I was really young long and I was. I was really taking that low calorie low fat message so dry tuna basically with dry lettuce And I was depriving myself. And then I that's where it began really so then you do that long enough and then you start to rebel. Your body starts to rebel and I gained all the way back. I started eating eating eating eating and really couldn't stop so for those reasons. I WANNA share with you. What I didn't know? Aw then which was the important biochemical fact that we teach in our nutrition for weight loss series which I am one of the teachers when you go on a low calorie salary low fat diet. It creates a stress response in your body. I mean think about that. I'm walking along and I drop over twelve thirteen the sad sad story and probably quite common still to this day. I would hope it wouldn't be but it's it's probably very common instill but really my body was telling me I don't have enough here to go on. Because of that stress response. The adrenal glands were releasing the hormone cortisol and that excess cortisol creates more insulin resistant. So that's what started all that insulin resistance in my body which which then you know initially lead to weight loss but then started showing up as belly. Fat so personally I don't want to create create that Cortisol response so now. I eat every two to three hours. And I'm not eating dry tuna on driverless. I know what I skip a meal or snack I gain weight because that court is all that when my blood sugars getting too low that cortisol response is going to help me to gain weight. Wait which is especially around the mid section eight that belly fat. Yeah and you would I think a lot of our longtime listeners have heard the term insulin salon resistance. Yeah we won't go into deep of a dive with that but insulin resistance just means that it's harder for your body to get the glucose into the cells out of the bloodstream and into the cells. So you're just more likely to gain weight to store fat. It's more difficult to lose weight. Yeah we have this great visual in one of the classes of your cells and there's locks padlocks all over the cells rights rate so if you think about it you're you're locking yourself cells. Those in nothing really gets in or out. That's you know making that happen. So essentially what was a lightbulb moment for me as when I was on these diets. It's my cells. Were locked up in that glucose that I was getting from my diet could not be used for energy. So he'll low energy. I felt you know fainting. Okay so he hit me of low energy right right

We're MTV shot the seventeenth season. He bought items including a curate coffeemaker between March thirtieth and April fifth. He returned the original boxes with other items packed inside.

Sears to ask bankruptcy judge for approval to liquidate: sources
"Well, they filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy last year back in October. And I do believe they're facing a a judge today to try to their hanging by a thread ABC's Ryan burrow is that about right to today's a day where the folks from Sears are meeting with a bankruptcy judge. Is that correct? Yes. So there was one bid put on the table to try to save this retailer from liquidation, and it was placed by chairman Eddie Lampert. He put in a four point four billion dollar last. Second bid kind of at the deadline at the end of December. To try and save the brand. But it does not appear based on reporting close sources close to the situation that this is a sufficient bid, according to the bankruptcy proceedings, and the and the court they are going to court today. They will talk this out and see if maybe the pot or the deal has been sweetened at all, including more cash added potentially less debt wiped away as part of this bid. But all indications are right now that this is this is a long shot a hail, Mary if you will and liquidation probably isn't too far behind ABC's. Ryan burrow, joining us on the fate of Sears and KMart which Sears zones, by the way, and it pretty much seems like this is a situation where it's like an old car an old beat up car, the might be worth more for its parts. Then as a whole. Yeah. I mean, they've already sold off the craftsman brand, right? They did that in two thousand seventeen. So they are no longer the exclusive seller of craftsman that went to black and decker. They still. Got ten more. They were looking to to sell that offer about four hundred billion dollars and apparently Amazon their biggest rival right now at kinda sniffing around that. But we'll see the the idea by in Lampard's bid was to consolidate the stores bring it down to a level that would be manageable right now, they've got a footprint of about four hundred and twenty-five stores and think about that just last year they had seven hundred stores. So I mean, they've been shedding like crazy for the last couple of years and they've worked into eleven billion dollars in debts. And boy just just in that arrow op his has been a real struggle. How many employees currently work for that company? Ryan sixty eight thousand at the time of the bankruptcy filing. Now, we know since the bankruptcy filing. They've shed hundreds of more stores. So the figures probably more along the lines of about fifty thousand employees who are probably going to get some hard news. If this does go to liquidation ABC's Ryan burrow joining us. And I gotta ask you switching gears. Ryan, you're in Chicago. Ago. Are you a bears fan? I am. I am. I'm not I just want to ask at want to get your reaction. You've had a couple of days for it to settle in. And and you know, God bless Cody parkey. It's now been
Sears picks liquidator should rescue talks fall through: sources
"If the Sears board allowed Eddie Lampert to buy it his offer though, which is largely funded with outside sources of capital is facing tough scrutiny from series advisors. People familiar with the situation, they'll CNBC if the two are unable to find a resolution it could force. Here's to liquidate. And it's completely shut down the one hundred and twenty five year old retailer, which also owns KMart filed for bankruptcy in October. At the time it employed sixty eight thousand workers, so eighteen thousand workers already gone. Seers advisers have until four PM to decide whether ESL's bid is viable. On friday. That was yesterday. I don't know. It looks like was updated thirteen days ago, thirteen hours ago. So I don't know. The data show. But if you want to check on that a continuing issue was the one point eight billion that Lampert put towards his offer by forgiving debt, owed ESL through a so-called credit bid. So here's the thing. They're trying to do some financial engineering to save Sears. Why not? Sears is also holding the meeting for liquidators who carry out the process of breaking the company apart. But think about these very busy now. Sears bankruptcy lawyers plan to charge their customary

"Rivet gun or whatever you have and say now, this is the hand tools people get really mad because it doesn't apply to the power tools and say, hey, I don't like this. And they will give you another. Why that was that was the rule up through you know, some time ago. No, I don't think. They're quite that. Yeah. I don't know. I really I really don't know. Wouldn't KMart was around. They were still are they are around, but they were selling the same submarine sandwiches that Chris skis used to sell. So so let's since you worked in their Delhi department. I used to get one of those subs for lunch every week at the crest skis that used to be up on grand river and greenfield in Detroit. I love them. You know, they had little banana peppers banana peppers were they're they're they're famous for the for the subs. I'm not kidding you. I mean, the K marts Saab was a big kmarts, another great example. Right. They started that big box retailer concept. They were the first and somehow throughout they lost their way a little bit. You know, we've got to take this call. We have Lisa on the phone right now. And she's going to tell us. Why K-Mart sucks lethal you're on the line? Yeah. Oh, hi, Hello. I loved KMart. Oh, I do too. I did hear me now. But I did. My wife, and I would go out to dinner, and then we'd go to KMart. And then we'd come home, you know? Yeah. Life with KMart Sears. I'm so disappointed with Sears right now. We we we we bought a refrigerator with ice maker. And we went to serious because we bought some appliances at ABC warehouse, and it didn't work out. So we learned our lesson. And we went to Sears. Refrigerator with ice maker. And so I finally went out a couple years later, and so they came out and they worked on it. It worked for three days 'cause it was leaking. And then we had to wait another week they came out and now the technician came out and sealed something and then it leaked again. And then so we had to wait another week for somebody to come out and. Well, again, it dropped one tray of ice and it stopped working. So now, we're trying to get them to come back. So this is a current problem. You're having with them right now from thanksgiving. We've had no is Saul. Might not be a great time to get anything from Syria. I don't know. Exactly. So right now, this is this is our issue right now Thursday, I didn't have to work. So they were going to come out Thursday morning between nine and one ten minutes tonight. He calls me and says he's coming when I called because this would have been the fourth time for them to come out when I called says, please send me somebody who knows what they're doing. So then they didn't send anybody to say. You know when the gentleman called yet ten tonight. It was the same one from the first time because he's already been out there twice twice, and well, nobody show. No call. I get a phone call about two o'clock saying that they rescheduled my appointment. So that all day Thursday was wasted. I had to go back to work Friday. My husband can't go to work Friday. So they said, okay, they were gonna come out between three thirty and five no show. No call. They changed her appointment to yesterday twelve to four no show. No call. We kept calling kept changing. Our scare appointment scheduled time. You know, three three three four five to five forty five now show. No call. You knew we had to call them by eight thirty and our next appointment is next Saturday. So Lisa you gotta call us next Sunday. And let us know whether they show up on Saturday. But I want to ask you which Sears store. Did you buy that? We bought it at the one in Lincoln park paid cash for it. You know, I think I think right now if they're probably listening to this and right now, they got a guy on a step stool with a razor blades scraping off that bottom line that says guaranteed satisfaction or your money back. I'll bet they are. I'm so disappointed because this is an appliance that we've always wanted and we couldn't necessarily afford. I understand we had to lose my father-in-law to get this money. You know? And so we finally got something really nice. And we can't get it fixed. You know? I it's it's it's terrible. It's really terrible customer service last night. Just was giving my husband's such a hard time that he was taking. My husband was shaking on the phone with him trying to get him to understand we want this fixed. Right somebody. They only have two technicians. You know in our area. That's it. To it from a personal perspective. Now, I didn't buy it at Sears that came with my house, but we had a water line to our ice maker break this summer. While we were on vacation. It did seventy one thousand dollars in damage to our house was at a Kenmore was not. Oh, mine was mine was okay. Well, that was the problem. You know, I had. Yeah. Together, probably in probably in Mexico. Right. They probably make a amac. I think we're up is actually based in Michigan. They are bell creek. Yeah. Over that way. Yeah. Well, lisa. Right now with Sears. I really wanna thank you for calling and hopefully someone from Sears will be their next Saturday. If there that I want to know, okay. Call this one eight hundred absolutely absolutely. Okay. Well, thank you so much. Okay. Let me vent. Thanks. Okay. Lisa bye-bye. Hey, you know, I had a couch was a whole whole living room set. Green leather. We had it for about five years the the leather. Apparently, they had used some vinyl f for the seaming on it or something and it cracked, and when it cracked I called Sears, they came out. They looked they they they wanted to replace that piece of the couch. They replaced the piece of the couch and it didn't match anymore. So they replace our entire living room set. The we had these red couches in our house up until probably about a year ago that we got from them that they've replaced the whole thing. So maybe Sears, isn't what it used to be. Well, I think I think it's a whole different world. And again, look Eddie Lampert genius, right? He's a self made billionaire craziest kidnap tonight before he bought came are all sorts of things have happened this guy, but he's not a retailer. Well, Eddie if you're listening. We've got a serious problem with an ice maker. And it would be great. If it got solved. So funny story. So I worked for the guy there Syracuse last name was also Lambert, and so someone found his Email, and he would get all these emails complaining from different people. They thought they were they were actually just emailing. This this other guy. Or I want to say his name. It wasn't any. That's hilarious. So what we're going to go to a break now. And then when we come back we're going to move on to some well this series is serious business, but some little bit more serious business. Let's go to that break. How do you.

"But not all stories have a happy ending as the twentieth century came to a close. So did Sears rain. Kerley heart tongue on the story the rise and fall of Sears and American institution. I I didn't really use the catalog myself growing up. I think we had them in the house because they would just come to your house automatically once a year and Sears didn't ship their purchases right to your home the way Amazon does now you would come to the local catalog store, which I believe is different from the department store, and then they would call you, and you would go pick it up. And but I I do remember flipping through it. And you can look at all the toys and things in their page after page after page, and it would give you some ideas about things that you might want to ask your parents for at least that was my experience. And I don't think I I think I think occasionally I might have been brought there for first day of school clothing. But I remember other stores perhaps that might have been closer to our home. But the thing is about one hundred and forty two of them are closing and also KMart stores now, they're also closing a bunch of KMart stores. Kmart doesn't seem to have the same. Hold on the imagination. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe because it wasn't around as much or maybe it was more regional sometimes at least in years past but Sears owns KMart. And the KMart stores are going down the tubes along with the parent company. Sears. So it's a pretty good chance that as we sit here a year from today, they will not be KMart or Sears. Does that matter to you? Do you have memories of it to you miss? It. Would you want to go into a series and try and boost their sales and keep it going or is that something that time has just passed on? And we we find it much easier to to sit at home. But you know, you don't get those big store displays they used to have some of them that had windows and downtown areas, you know, they would have the big Christmas. Displays Easter displays. They would have Halloween displays, and they would get the kids in there to tell their parents things that they wanted to buy for a lot of it. You know, they would have those great mannequins there they had wedding scenes and some of those that's the time that's long since passed. But you know, it's much easier. Now to go shopping. You know, I don't go to department stores very much. I do everything online as much as I can fourteen before the hour..
