"And. I'm really excited talk today's and gas. We know that one of the things that's going to be on the ballot this election season is criminal justice reform and we think about criminal justice reform. We really don't think about all the ways all offices where we vote for people and they have an impact, and today we're going to be speaking to two women in elected office who had been leading on criminal justice. Reform issues. We have state's attorney I-I've brave boy from Maryland in Kentucky State representative. Avocado. Scott in true fashion I we have to start with having you tell us what you're you into politics and we'll start with you state's attorney. Well, that's a great question. Actually I, had no intentions in getting into politics really it was my father who want to work on a campaign. He knows sometimes you have the your parents even as adults. That's. Asked. Me I was going to be a lawyer told him down and. Then, he told me I think I like you to work on his campaign I. Think you need to get politically as like now they're not. WanNa do that. But that the person who? Wanted. To work for happen to have graduate from the same law school that I will. The Howard University School of law. I'm did okay. Another in help bison out. Ever since V. I love how Howard alums Y'all always get an issue it can do no. Just regular conversation. How are you today? Oh I went to Howard. Thank you. Scott. Tell us whether you into politics. Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained

Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb

"Today or conversation is with music city icon drew holcomb. And you may remember that. We talked to drew's manager Paul Steal a few weeks ago. But here's the thing you need to know about drew. He absolutely refuses to be limited by other people's labels yes? He's a killer singer and songwriter. And believe me you're GONNA WANNA listen to the end of this episode. But he's used that foundation of singing and songwriting to lay a platform for becoming an entrepreneur. An investor a business owner. The guys creative he's disciplined. He's an absolute anomaly. But all of these different roles and qualities they've come together to make for a pretty remarkable and outrageous life but as you will hear his path toward becoming one of Americana Music Most beloved and authentic figures. It was one that actually started over twenty years ago and it was birthed out of a tragedy. I played music all throughout high school. I was your classic like Gout. The Guitar Planning Life and Learning Songs and having fun just with friends. I didn't write a song until I was a junior in college. I went to a personal tragedy the summer after my junior year of high school at a younger brother special needs who passed away very unexpectedly. I was actually out of the country and music was sort of thing. Kinda got me through it so really for me. Music was this personal sort of healing anchor. Anchor exactly I've no thoughts of doing it professionally especially talented at that time. I don't think so. No no not really I mean I was. I was fine You know I always had a very sort of ernest. Hard-working like plow through it. Sort of ethic involved in scouts and was in the student body organization. And all the things you know at school. I Love School. I always student so I went to school to college with the intent of going to graduate school to study. History on my goal is to write books and be a history professor so that was the dream now somewhere along the way. My junior decided to go study abroad and I studied in Edinburgh Scotland and I didn't really know anybody so I took my guitar with me. You know that was like my main hobby was playing guitar and I just started writing songs like at night. I'd finish my work or whatever three roommates. A Frenchman Franck Thomas the German Dave the Canadian and drew the American. That sounds like the makings of a killer ban. Yes that's right court. What are you studying in? Scotland studying church history so studying sort of like a variety of classes but Studying sort of fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Scotland. Studying the early sort of early Roman church so sort of. Constantine through you know the the break-up of the Roman Empire so just like nerdy stuck just had your guitar with you the whole yet. I wasn't writing songs about any of that stuff. I mean it was informing you know in a way but now I just started writing songs and really. It was diving into that pain because what I knew I was GONNA do. I started writing songs because my senior project at. Ut was an oral history about my brother. So I was interviewing fifty to eighty people. Nurses doctors friends teachers cousins. Who grew up around him in his life. And I was trying to figure out why this like kid. With Spina Bifida made such an impact when he his funeral was like twenty five hundred on my word so I was just personally curious and also just thought it was a great way to sort of put this history stuff to work to do this oral history and so part of that was started writing songs about that. Sorta as a sideline and extending come home from Scotland and start my senior year. My friends start playing songs for my friends. They're like Ayman is a pretty good. You should maybe give this a go so I started looking some gigs in Knoxville. Like at bars and I'd play covers and originals. Invite my friends out and this mentor of mine. Basically told me so. Hey man graduate. School can wait a year to like. It's not going anywhere much to take a break. Do this music thing get a job. See what happens. And that was in the fall. Two Thousand and three and here we are in two thousand twenty. Golly that's crazy so when you started doing it and you were playing in those bars. You couldn't have been making much planning those bars. No it's probably pretty scrappy beginnings for a while. I would assume yeah really four or five years of absolute scrap absolute scrap. Was that whole time where you think to yourself. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life or were you just filling time. During that season I was enjoying sort of the process of seeing the country of convincing by then friend to date me and Mary me I was enjoying the freedom I really found a lot of freedom and being my own boss that was like also and I was like well. That's pretty cool. And then also the same time I was sort of looking at the writing on the wall of the other dream going man. It's like really hard to get a real decent job at university especially as sort of a you know another southern white male just like there's a lot of those PhD's in history saturated market. So I just honestly the part of it I was really loving the business and I was finding satisfaction in putting together the band and the recording process and learning I was growing. I felt like you know all these things. I didn't understand about music. I mean as a kid you get a record and you think Oh. These people just got no room. They've set up. Some microphones push record. And that's what you hear and then you realize that. Oh It's actually this incredibly long and arduous process but very satisfying process and so I found myself enjoying it and just kept going based on my dad. You know I'm just GonNa keep doing this until it stops growing and it didn't. You're still. Here is your idol dip. It was your dad. Supportive or your parents supportive as you were kind of pursuing this dream very supportive. My Dad always jokes. He says he has all these friends that tell him like. Why did you let drew do this? And he's like I let drew do anything you know. He's twenty one years. Old graduated from College Emmy debt which was Nice Ozone. Scholarship makes a big difference in your twenty two years old about. Can you pursue this dream? Well I have all this debt and I gotta get a certain amount of money job or can I like try to do something independently with it of hamstrings you? So I didn't have any deaths and my dad basically told me like. Hey Man if you're gonNa work hard at this your mom and I are in your corner like let's go for it and actually took me guitar shop and bought me like the nicest guitar he could afford and said like this is our send you on your way thing you know. Wow so very supportive stuff had other people say like I wanted your parents. Let you do this crazy thing. Let me amount of adult. Yeah that's right. You don't have to have your parents permission but it sure helps. Psychologically I think to have people that believe in you that in your corner day deal but also. They weren't covering like they weren't paying for you to do they work. They work funding your dream. But they were supporting your. Yeah but I gave me alone ten grand and make my first record but it was expected to be paid back. And did you pay of course? I figured you're probably not still in the payment plan. No I read this in. I think it was rolling stone. That wrote it. It said while working at a Memphis studio in the early two thousands holcomb started playing small bars on weekends and eventually found himself zigzagging across the south in old Volvo Wagon and putting nearly three hundred thousand miles on the car and five years first of all. Is that true very true? John Actually totaled at around two hundred and forty thousand miles and took it around mechanic and he he made it drivable not put another ninety thousand miles on it. That's insane you're going all over and then it says initially. He says he was barely making ends. Meet playing at the most random coffee houses and community college. Lunch hours anywhere. That would give me a little scratch to play my songs. So that's a pretty accurate representation. Those first few yeah definitely and you know some of those college. Gigs were literally community colleges noon and they had these entertainment budgets that they had dispensed they bring you in. I'd bring my own P. A. And severe that set it up in the corner at start playing and literally a third of the room when they realized the somebody was sort of interrupting their lunch would put their headphones on to listen to their music. While I'm playing in the corner so you had to have pretty thick skin letting you know their checks cashed and that's how I was able to afford to keep going so it was complete survival. Did you have moments where you were just like? What am I doing at least two or three times an hour? When I was playing shows seriously though you know sometimes about halfway through that period is when I got married. Ellie was a schoolteacher and then after a year of teaching administered go on. The road means so really my last year of doing a lot of those colleges she was with me and that was so much more fun because we were just getting the car and just laugh at how terrible the experience was you know like. I said they were the gigs paid and that was the right around the time we started having some success with songs on TV and film. This song live forever came out which did really well On. Tv show. Parenthood was the season. Finale montage moment and we got paid enough to get a van and we started getting asked to go on tour other singer. Songwriters. Dave Barnes and Marvis. Are these sort of smaller. You Know Club. Things were also starting to really make real fans and then it became. Maybe I want to do this for the rest of my life. Real to that point it was like this is a big.

Hair Loss, Stress, and At-Home Treatments to Regrow Your Hair

"If you've been noticing more clumps of hair in the shower that could be a result of stress But we don't want to stress you out more because there are things you can do. Look I lost his little Patrick here. Living proof ride here but there are things that you can do right now at home to help that And one of the first things. We'RE GONNA START TODAY. We've got a wonderful guest She is a Harrisburg and she's actually know working with Bosley which I thought was just for men. But he educator there and What's so great is that she cleared up. A lot of the MISC- The misconceptions I had about Knoxville as everyone knows what Doxa Gul's the only thing that has been approved by the FDA that actually does regret hair and is active with the minoxidil though Is that something you know? Just speaking as a not a hair professional It's something that I've heard about right. Rogaine is another big brand that you hear about and I have a girlfriend who had significant hair loss. And that's what she was using. But it meant hawks ultimate always been a little bit scary right so is that other people should not be using or is it something. That's pretty safe for everyone. So there's a two different percentages on it. There's a two percent and a five percent. Typically the women use the two percents and the men used the five percent so You Wanna be able to Access that lower percentage If you feel necessary and then you can like start in slowly but I do recommend that you use at the same time every day And it's just like he would try to think about taking care of any other Any other area of your body. I mean you won't stop brushing your teeth with a certain kind of toothpaste. If you have great results from that so Ryan I mean but you get what I'm saying like do you think like pregnant woman shouldn't use yet so and doesn't make your hair fall out at first a little bit too? Can't that be an effect or am I totally wrong about this. Maybe I'm totally off. I'm sure one out of one thousand. Maybe it fell out but maybe he or she skipped a day or like you said didn't put it on at the same time at the same Torino at like. If you break your routine with these systems you can have a shed you absolutely can but is this something you think. Everybody should be using then. I'm even if it's like the hair. He knew it. If you're if you're like fresh out of Chemo and you just grew your new hair back now. Right no right right right. If you think you're going to get pregnant or you're infertility. No I mean it's kind of common sense. If you have other health issues you should obviously talk to your physician and throw that against the wall but I think majority of people can give it a whirl and just but if you're if you second guesses talk with your doctor so what is that program. Is it like once you start is it. You have to just keep doing it. Is it like a man which we know a lot of beauty things right like if you want Bo talks? You're going to have to keep doing botox to keep the wrinkles away if you want those eyelash extensions. You're going to need to keep doing them. The second you're not gonNA have those lashes if you want hair extensions so is this another thing that you're going to sort of add to your beauty toolkit but it's like once you start to commit to it. Yes if you're seeing results from it you definitely want to keep doing so Hair has three cycles. Everybody's familiar with you. Know Antigen intelligent and Cata Jen. So when you're in the resting phase During that phase. That's the time that you want to make sure that you're speeding up that process when that new hair growth is starting to come back in and you also want to keep the hair that you have so you're definitely trading from a clinical approach. She knows that hair follicle and you're waking up and speeding up that rusting cycle where that new hair can come back and through so you're seeing results in your getting hair growth. You definitely want to eat using that. So somebody WHO's been bald for thirty years all the back And that her follicle is no longer producing hair. Are you going to get results from Minoxidil? Maybe not so that definitely you WANNA wake up that hair follicle and you WANNA speed up that process for that new hair to come back through. How do you feel about the the caps or the headbands with the red light therapy? Your what's your what's your take on those those are showing a lot of promise and those also There's lots of before and after she now that are online. So it's one of those things it's like you know what works for one person may not necessarily work for all if you know works for the majority and if it works for you definitely keep doing it. You have to be insisted on that you have to use it. You know. Every single day In addition to the other three sixteen approach that you're doing I personally noticed when I combined all three. Wow it was the trio of fact for

Until Death: Raynella Leath

"As a child. Rinella grew up in a small community outside Knoxville Tennessee. Rinella was the second child. She had an older sister named flow. Anna and two younger siblings. Marcus and Robin her parents do e Annie met in college. They married after. Dewey had enlisted in the Army Air Corps. Any Finish College. Do we want a purple heart? And after the war he continued his education. So Anne worked as a schoolteacher and do he worked for the US Department of Energy so he made some good use at his time. Back in college had a masters degree in Chemistry and Physics and he was very invested in a safe storage of nuclear waste. Sounds like a smart guy. Yeah absolutely and Rinella grew up in this ideal environment. It was virtually crime free. And this was a town where she and her siblings could. Just hop on their bikes. Anytime go downtown. See a movie or use the Community Swimming Pool. It was kind of one of those pre planned communities for the nuclear power plant scientists. So the kids didn't even know what their parents position was at the company. But that's pretty much what it all revolved around but they were also religious rain. Ls saying in the choir of the Baptist Church and when she was in elementary school her classes were segregated but her high school actually became the first integrated school in the south in nineteen fifty five so at least in part because of the large population of these government scientists. Rinella schools were quite exceptional. The science were excellent of course and the children began learning a second language by the time they were in the second grade so it really gave her a lot of advantages in life her. She was always at the top of her class and was taking all the advanced courses she could. She's also in the marching band spinner weekends at Football Games drive INS and other activities common in the nineteen fifties. Yes he just watch American graffiti. That was kind of what it was like. Right right yeah. Drinking was less of a problem than in most communities because this county they lived in was completely dry. Yeah that's amazing how to combat alcohol. Well I mean if you really want the alcohol you could drive out of the county and get it sure but it's certainly made it harder on the kids in a lot of their parents didn't even have booze in the house which. I don't know about you but the first blues I had I snuck from my parents. Liquor cabinet will. It's where you get it right exactly and there's not just a dry county but a lot of lot of Baptist people and they don't look at alcohol. Is that interesting anyway now? I think it might be a no no for them completely. It certainly not encouraged note therefore remark so after high school. Rinella went to East Tennessee State University as a nursing student while they're Rinella got good grades in competed in rifle shooting. Yeah funny when you think about Ed. Just the way said that. I'm thinking here's a student right getting the grid. So but yeah. He's a marksman let's Tennessee. It's the south right and. I think there's you know more familiarity with guns in the south or is that just a a cliche. No I think that's probably true. Yeah we'll why she was there. This is when she met her. First husband. William Edward Dos it and he went by Ed but young ad had a very different childhood. He had many losses in his life. And I guess the most dramatic I would say was his mom's death. This happened on Easter morning. Nineteen fifty six when Little Edie was just eight years old and he woke up in the morning to find his mother on the floor beside his bed. Dead of a heart attack and just two months later. His Dad died from cancer. So Eddie was an orphan and he ended up moving in with his aunt. And uncle was kind of tough Lou eight-year-old cured get up in the morning and mom's dead on the floor. Can you imagine it's just? It's horrible so he had a much rougher upbringing then ray Nella dead but he was just a real go-getter and as a child. Everyone said he was exceptionally kind in high school. He played some football but he also worked on the school newspaper and he was a member of several clubs. Once he was in his senior year he was given the award for the Best School Spirit. Then he went to college on a football scholarship and he continued to date his high school sweetheart in his freshman year. Everyone thought these two would get married but then he met right now at college in broke up with the girlfriend not an unusual phenomenon. Guess so ED graduated with a business degree. He and Renault got married when she was a senior in college. Now the story I always liked Nell is mom. She didn't approve of that and she apparently knew how to hold a grudge. But she didn't speak to Ed for the first thirteen years of their marriage. Well that's serious grudge holding right. Guess so you really love my mother-in-law. She doesn't talk to me. But when you look at the big picture it kind of makes you think Did Rain Nella get some of that kind of personality from holding grudges or well at decided? He wanted to be a lawyer and he started taking classes at the University of Tennessee Law School in Nineteen Sixty nine ray. Nella began working as a nurse after she graduated in nineteen seventy two at graduated from law school. He had inherited his family's farm. Both of his parents were deceased so he would call himself a farmer and a country lawyer. But it's funny he always said I'm a farmer I and a lawyer second even though he would really end up being very successful as a lawyer did a good job. He had quite a career absolutely really popular as well. It worked in criminal defending people in need. Yeah he liked to help the poor people. Then in nineteen seventy eight. Renaudot gave birth to their first child. Maggie dice it and they then moved to the family farm. Young family lived in a mobile home on the property. As Ed built a new house they worked hard. He built the house entirely from lumber from his own trees. He had an architect who designed the home and he had a contractor friend who advised him on how to do things but basically he built this place. So that's pretty impressive to me. Sure is in nineteen eighty two. When a district attorney general retired decided to run for that job and the funny thing is once. He entered the election. His mother-in-law had a change of heart. Suddenly Ed was an okay guy. Who's now worthy of my attention right? Which really got crate? But she enjoyed this attention and she would be photographed with him at campaign events as much as possible. But Ed took it in stride you now. That's my mother-in-law. Whatever I'm going to be nice to. Everybody and Rinella was a good wife. She was working really hard to help them with this campaign. So it's not like they were on the outsor- anything. The marriage was really good for a long time. And when Ed Din win this election the family celebrated the local. Sheriff gave Ed a five shot. Pistol telling him now. He needed a gun to protect himself. Because he's putting away bad guys and they might come after him but that wasn't a gun guy then the next year at an Rinella had a son William Edward Dawson Junior. So now the family had big Edie and little Edie Ed had a secretary named K and she was married to a guy named Steve Walker and the two couples K. In Stephen Ed. Ray Noah were friendly and they did some socializing from time to time when K had a son who they named Kevin in nineteen eighty four. She left her position and ED's office and Henry now had a third child whose name Katie born in nineteen eighty five so rinella never visited the walkers but ed ended up spending a lot of time there and you might ask why they spent a Lotta time why. He spent a lot of time there because he was screwing k. Well I'm just thinking you know. Things must have been not perfect with he and Rinella by then if he's out having an affair her maybe he was just bored who knows but K. was very fond of him and that's part of the issue. A lot of people think K. Was really in love with Ed. But he wasn't going to leave rain Allah and we don't know if that's because it wouldn't look good if he was afraid of her. Maybe we don't know. But then in nineteen eighty AK had a second son who she and her husband named Kyle and although her husband Steve Did know about it until years later kyle was actually Ed's biological child the product of this affair kind of love child. We didn't know about birth control too. Well I'm sure there was some knowledge of it but who knows. Maybe she wanted to have a baby kinda nasty to pass it off as her husband. Well I don't know Dick. I almost think it's kind. Maybe you don't agree with me but I almost think it's kind of a kind decision. What good is it going to do their family now? They have two sons. What good is it if she tells her husband? The son is not biologically yours and maybe she didn't even know one hundred percent. That's a possibility but I mean I'm just one of these people. I think sometimes not most the time but sometimes holding back. A harsh truth can be an act of love controversial. But it's how I feel I'm GONNA leave it at that okay now. Nineteen Ninety right now retired from nursing and she concentrated on raising her children and managing the family farm. Dave Leaf was a nice man. Who's a friend of ED? And he had a pool. Nello take your children. Today's house to swim in the summer other than that. There was really no connection between Renault and Dave while they were very different people. I mean she really valued education and Dave was a high school dropout. Who worked as a barber? Not that. There's anything wrong with that but it's a much simpler job than ads. Still Dave was very likeable and well known in the community is a good guy. You know that same year ED started to have stomach pains now. He said in a board meeting for local farmers that he had the meanest away from the world. Who's trying to kill him even though he didn't smile and he said everyone's still took it as a joke. They all understood. That Renault is a real force. Probably wasn't the easiest woman to live with. Now I mean what can you say about right Allah from what we know. She was wearing the pants in her home. No matter who she was married to and you didn't want across her she could hold a grudge dislike her mom. I guess but then tragedy struck in October of nineteen ninety one because that was admitted into the hospital he thought it was just for an appendectomy but during that surgery a Denno carcinoma was found on his appendix and too small intestine so they did some further exploratory surgery and they found that he had cancer. That had metastasized to several organs. It was just all over his abdomen so there was no chance of curing him of that

Cruise Industry Hit Hard By Coronavirus Outbreak Effects

"As you can imagine. The Corona virus has hit the cruise ship. Industry really hard. The federal government is advising people not to go on a cruise and passengers who got stuck on ships with an outbreak of shared experiences of being quarantined in tiny rooms. Not Knowing when they'd be able to go home as NPR's Chris. Arnold reports people who've booked a cruiser. Now trying to figure out what to do. Linda Nell Bandy is scheduled to go on a cruise ship in April to Bermuda. She and her husband recently got married. They're combining their families and taking their five teenagers on. This cruise was supposed to be their first big trip together. The kids were excited. He's super excited. And it was a lot of build up over the last couple of months talking about it planning it and then current buyers the trip was a big expense six thousand dollars so as the outbreak spread. They've been grappling with what to do. They didn't want to wreck. A great vacation of the odds. Were really small that there even be a problem definitely agonizing being a bad parent. Because you're you're buying into panic or hysteria or you being a bad parent because you're bringing into a situation that maybe in retrospect you be like what was I thinking but now many cruise ship companies are trying to reassure customers that they don't need to panic and cancel now. They can wait to see what happens with this outbreak and they can even cancel just a few days before their crews and get credit for another trip later. Lifted Obama and got an email explaining that from Norwegian cruise. Line this past weekend it was a relief and definitely left us with a very warm and fuzzy feeling towards the Cruise. Line as far as what? The right decision is Dr Anthony. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He spoke to NPR on this program yesterday and said since elderly people and people with underlying health problems are particularly vulnerable to this corona virus. Those people should take special precautions. You don't travel you. Don't go to very crowded places particularly you. Don't get on a cruise ship because what we've seen what happened with the cruise ship. What's happened so far is several cruise ships outbreaks and had to quarantine passengers some stricken passengers died after contracting the virus. The State Department issued an advisory on Sunday saying people in general quote should not travel by cruise ship. I was very shocked and disappointed. I think it's it's too far extreme. Stewart Sheron is worked in the cruising travel industry for thirty years and books cruises for people through his website called the cruise guy. He says to warn elderly people in those medical conditions seems reasonable but to tell everybody to stay off cruise ships. Says he'd go on a cruise today right now. There are hundreds of ships sailing around the world that are not having any issues. The Cruise Line Industry Association says the ships are taking special precautions including screening people for a fever before allowing them to start a cruise and some people are deciding that the risk seems small and his worth taking others are of course canceling or trying to Ashley. Manning is a nurse practitioner in Knoxville Tennessee. She's decided to cancel her. Crew's coming up in ten days to the Mexican Riviera on Carnival cruise line. I've called Delta canceled our flights. They were non-refundable tickets. They automatically refunded everything without even a question but getting through the carnival. I was on the phone for about three hours yesterday. Kept calling in. It just never goes to anybody and just as a voice recording and then. It'll disconnect you and you think you're still on the line carnival says it's ramping up staffing but as any seasoned traveler knows when everyone calls it once it's hard to get through so if you are going to cancel your crews. Don't leave it until the very last minute

Clinton in office and So we're real proud of that story. I'm proudest of is One of my staff members. I fortunately I feel vegetable about young since college lower. Hit a little little experience. Laurie Robinson was all right how she was on my staff and And it really shouldn't be up the whole Staffan certainly are and she's a graduate of Spelman in Atlanta and There was a allegation at Morehouse being raped. Spelman woman and only because laureate toby. She wanted to write a book about her experience. I suggested that she go back there to her alma mater right about that and then we've been home person experience with it and it was just one powerful story and those are the story.

Magazine's the worst newspaper in terms of diversity but They did in all fairness did let me president and it was indeed a Han and You know in fact. I'm coming from a black magazine representing the magazine industry so I was so pleased with that. Your current position as editor in chief of the National Newspaper Published Association. Give us a brief history of that organization and your responsibilities with black presses. About one hundred seventy six years old gotten around fighting against niches slavery and everything else. I have been here. Two years. Essentially is a federation of more than two hundred African American newspapers Most of them weekly and essentially what I do is provide news out of Washington and and National News as well For a member newspapers. And so we've pretty much such service. Washington bureau founders for audience. That aren't really familiar. That are not African Americans. Why has the black press particularly organization the two hundred or so Weeklies still viable in this country today. Well I wish having spent thirty three years journalism most of not into black press. I wish that the media was doing this job. And there'd be no need for the Black Press a Hispanic Women magazine but it but it is not doing. It does a terrible job and still a worse job. I think when I came to business thirty three years ago. So if you're going to get in order to be well informed you have to read from a variety of sources in the first place you know you just can't read just to Austin space when you just read just you know Dallas Weekly. Just can't you gotta read from different sources and so So would ask an American perspective gives you a different look at some of the same national issues and then he's going to be really inform. You need to reap the black newspapers and go out website. black press. Usa DOT COM

Love Chicken Nuggets? Thank Cornell Poultry Professor Robert C. Baker

"Future food scientists. Robert Baker was a boy when the Great Depression cut the legs out from under Americans especially early in the plains states where years of irresponsible agriculture practices led to the dust bowl. The Baker family which raised fruit in the summer and chickens pins in the winter. Had to get good at making a small amount of food feed as many people as possible. This way of thinking stayed with Robert through his years us at Cornell University where he majored in pathology the study and cultivation of fruit he graduated in forty three and went to work for the Cornell cooperative extension as a liaison between the university research centers and local farmers World War to increase the demand for chicken and the poultry. Three farmers had developed ways to grow their output including advances in genetics and feet but when the war was over the demand dropped farmers. Farmers didn't want to give up income by decreasing production so they had to find ways to increase the market for chicken from simple old timey market stalls to mid century injury grocers chickens were almost always sold whole which people were finding increasingly inconvenient as opposed to be for poor which came in cuts. Meanwhile Baker had begun to develop more of an interest in that aspect of his family's business the chicken raising he was hired by Cornell as an assistant professor in poultry science tasked with finally ways to encourage people to eat more chicken he and his team worked in a lab filled with grinders blenders and deboning machines jeans trying to develop test and taste new chicken products they created chicken Bologna chicken sausage chicken hot dogs and chicken patties. SHRIMP AROUND SUIT SHRIMPS DO SHRIMP Salad. Shrimp Input Titles Shrimp Burger Shrimp Sandwich. Last best westbound it. They also developed the broiler chicken a two to three pound chicken. More attractive to consumers and quicker to produce for farmers and found ways is to encourage people to eat more eggs. His most important achievement was a method that process chicken which allowed the meat to be shaped in any way possible. This gave birth to Baker's greatest invention. The chicken stick Baker in a student figured out a way to keep the ground chicken meat together and get a delicious batter to adhere to it. I put raw chicken and a grinder with salt and vinegar to take out the moisture. Then they added powdered milk and mashed up grains which helped to hold it together. Are they molded. The process chicken into sticks pros them dip them in battering cornflake crumbs and I again. They developed a package contested it at a local supermarket within six weeks. They were selling two hundred boxes a day. If I'm saying Baker invented the chicken nugget. Why isn't his name is well known as Ray KROC or even the McDonalds brothers? Baker didn't patent is chicken sticks or anything that he and his team created said Robert Grovonni Cornell professor who studied under Baker. He literally gave ideas away and other people patent at them. Plus Cornell had published the whole process and all of his recipes in the April nineteen sixty three issue of agricultural economics research publication that was distributed for free to over five hundred companies including McDonald's in nineteen seventy seven the McGovern report was released urging Americans for the first time to eat eat less red meat burgers took a real. Pr Hit and sales dropped. People wanted chicken and McDonald's wanted their money so they began to make their own frozen breaded chicken product using Baker's process though their shape circled the bell boot ball and bow in March in nineteen eighty. Fifteen Knoxville Tennessee. McDonald's debuted a new product the chicken mcnugget it set sales records and soon chicken nuggets. Were we're at every McDonald's worldwide over two billion servings and that can be anywhere from four to twenty nuggets at time are sold each year which is not doing us any favors withhold obesity thing and. That's ironic when you remember that. It came from a desire to make scarce food go farther. Though Baker never saw revenue share from those billions of sales he did get inducted into the American Poultry Hall of fame in two thousand four. So he's got that going for him in which is nice.

an hour and you have four locations this year which is really cool she really expanding the reach exactly and we hope to continue to grow this it's one of the largest blood donation days in the entire country so we're super proud of that last year we collected over twelve hundred units of blood and one unit of blood can help save three lives and like you just mentioned every two seconds someone in the US is in need of blood and if you don't think about it if you're never in that situation where you're where you're seeing or you're needing that blood or you know a friend or family member that's in need of blood because whether it's cancer or a trauma then you just you just never know but it's those people every day that need this to you know save their own life now the four locations this

aspen drive seventy six and then the new location is the performing arts center on ridge road in Munster Indiana Mack the nice reach this year yes so we're going all over and you know maybe next year will add a few more but we there have been people that have wanted to participate but coming down to the city or the suburbs of Chicago is a little too far so hopefully these new locations this year will make it a little bit easier for others to get involved but here's the thing what draws folks to this in addition to just the need and and the passion behind it is they get to see you they get to see some of the other folks that are on Saturday right and and that's fun and you're there twelve thirteen fourteen hours hanging out with the long right yeah it's a long day what is your smile's goal

The Movie "Rudy" vs. The Actual Rudy

"Ryan. I imagine most people listening to this have scene Rudy. Yes but for those who have not who apparently Do not have cable. Television during the holidays grew up in the Soviet you couldn't have seen it. We'll we'll recap for them briefly Rudy is a story of Rudy Ruediger. Play by Sean Astin. He is a small kid from the Mid West. He spent his whole life dreaming of playing football football for Notre Dame. He tries and fails multiple times. Transfers to the school. Walks on Makes Vince Vaughn. Young Vince Vaughn very angry and the versions various things So he doesn't make the dress for any of the Games during his senior year and he quits but then his friend the head groundskeeper at Notre Dame fortune who. I'm pretty sure it's a composite character. I can fix that. It's not pretty sure it's one hundred percent sure. So he convinces him to return to the team gives a great speech So really does his and he is greeted by his teammates and Ryan. What happens next? Well you're missing a couple of slow collapse controls. Dutton Charles us to claps and a team along flat and then He dresses is teammates. Throw their jerseys down. Dan Devine's desk. I won't Rudy on on the roster. He makes the dress list and he gets in for three. Plays possible as the rudy chant. Cascades down from New Rodney's bleachers and they inserted into game one for a a horribly play kickoff coverage and then he almost has a sack on his first play from scrimmage does have a sack on his last play and third ever play and is carried off feel about his teammates to the chant Stewart. Together it was much better than what we just did. The first first time you saw rudy the movie. I'm older than you are. I saw rudy in the theater. I was in college and I think it was what WH- fall of ninety three and saw with my roommates and the interesting thing was we're students at the University of Tennessee. We had just been to Notre Dame for the first time all of us. We drove up to south southbound from Knoxville for a game and so what was amazing about watching. The movie is is just stadium. Had not changed the Tom Rudy. was there in the early seventies all the way up through the early nineties really all the way up until about five or six years ago. The stadium itself did not change at all. The scoreboard was the same. The old wooden bench seats that knute rockne installed old you know in the Nineteen Twenties Thirties. There were still in the stadium. Notre Dame is a divisive topic regardless whether good or bad and now this movie comes out and the hilarious thing about that movie was people love the movie and a lot of them would not admit it because it was about. I'm leaving but I also feel like I've watched rudy three hundred times especially around Christmas time always on cable and it's like one of the few things the family can agree on is just it's a great story. It is a college football equivalent equivalent of the miracle on ice or any underdog story so the movie is released in Nineteen ninety-three but that's not the only thing that that enters the public. I the Real Ridi Ruediger starts to make appearances to promote film is stories about obstacles of life. It's about people striving to succeed. It's about people saying people saying to him. You can't be this and you can't be that you can't have this job. Experts about or you can come in Notre Dame play football. I have the most traditional story the most biggest fantasy and it came through rudy is now seventy one years old. He lives in Henderson Nevada. Just outside Las Vegas. You flew out to meet him this summer. What was that like? It was an out of body experience which is tired phrase. But that's exactly how I felt and you walk up in your mind. You're kind of looking for Sean Sean. Astin and then you realize oh no wait this older gentleman in the Notre Dame windbreaker. That's the gum looking for wearing. Notre Dame windbreaker. Yeah in his official reason reason for that was awarded this so that you'll be able to recognize me. No this is. Hey there's rudy sitting there but what I've learned sense is that He pretty much wears that all the time. I I think people have their own idea about what he's like based on the movie but what does he really likes. He's rough around the edges. He's not as polished as you. Maybe expect a guy who makes his living as a motivational speaker be worries. We'll play in Ohio state man. You're coming in I'm bringing you. We're going to show the movie to the boys. Ace said all right Notre Dame movies. Don't worry about it as shit. This is not gonNA work. He drops off bombs. He calls everybody coach which he calls the waitress at the coffee. Bean coach where you WanNa go coach. Talk to you. There's June. He calls the song coach. He called me coach. He doesn't so much at some point. You start mimicking it. Not The president like talking to a friend of yours of the British accent. You start talking with British accent. I started calling about a coach by the end of the day. And I get where people might be rubbed the wrong way by Rudy but if you really listen to him he's got that infectious smile and it's just a storyteller he starts telling stories. You end up just being mesmerized by
