Kentucky's 'Cocaine Bear' reportedly will be subject of Universal Pictures movie with Elizabeth Banks
"There's a movie coming out called Cocaine Bear. And if the title sounds bizarre, it's nothing compared to what the story is actually about. So you might know who Elizabeth Banks is. She was in the hunger games, and she's been in a bunch of other movies, too. She is directing this movie called Cocaine Bear. Now, if you heard of a movie called Cooking there, you probably think it's on SciFi Channel alongside shark, NATO or movies like that Cocaine bear is actually a true story. It's a thriller based on back in 1985, a drug smuggler named Andrew Thornton. Dropped a duffel bag filled with £70 of Coke from his plane over Georgia on the way back from a drug run to Colombia. So he went down. Got the drugs. He's flying back. He found out that this plane was flying too heavy, so he had to push the cocaine off the flight. And when he did it landed in the woods. And I guess ah Bear found it much and ate the cocaine. No and died. Oh, no, but it's even weirder. So he was a former narcotics cop who started smuggling so he went to the dark side and the run that is in the movie is took place on September 11th Weird 1985. He dropped because it was too heavy for the plane. Some time after the Georgia dump. This guy tried to jump out of the plane as well. But as he was trying to jump out of the plane, he got caught in his parachute and fell like a stone landing in some guy's driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee. He died on impact. The plane crashed 60 miles away in North Carolina when his body was discovered he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Gucci loafers, night vision goggles. He had 15 million worth of Coke, 4500 and cash, gold, Krugerrands knives and two pistols. Wow. Holy crap. The body of the Bear was discovered three months later, along with 40 open plastic containers and cocaine residue. They think the bear ate the cocaine. And there's the end of the bear.

But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so
Breonna's Law: Why we need police reform
"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

"Goes up through the Northeast. And so ah, Toyota and Honda, who manufacture and Lise light duty fuel cell vehicles. Are relying upon a very, very sketchy infrastructure right now. So we need more height Durjan stations to feel them, Robert, you may be able to tell us a bit about that, because hydrogen is been used over in Europe for a long time. Um in a course in Europe, gasoline and diesel cost significantly. Mohr So the cost factor hasn't been a Zbig oven issue as it is here in the United States. Um We also have breakout sessions for medium duty fleets. The's are the people like Amazon. Ah, and ups that that have these class five and class six trunks that air making deliveries all over the United States and actually all over the world. We have a collaborative session with our clean cities. Coordinators of the 92. I'm going to guess about 70 of them are going to participate in this meeting on Monday. And then in the afternoon, we're gonna have a utilities session. Part of this, especially as we move towards electric is all about upgrading the electrical grid to handle these necessary DC fast charge units that are going to have to be put in place at the different quarters, where most of our Traffic go. So where I am in the middle of New York State. I'm kind of at the intersection of interstate 81 that goes from Canada down to Knoxville, Tennessee. And Interstate 90 that goes. I believe from Cleveland all the way to Boston, So it's a very heavily traveled truck route and along those routes are going to have to be these 150 to 200 someone or even 350. K w. D. C fast charge units that are going to be a truck stops and rest areas suit so people who are driving electric vehicles don't get range anxiety. Did the electric utilities think that they can handle this extra load? You know that we're going to learn more about that Monday and and ask a lot of questions about it myself. Personally, I believe they can on DH. The reason they can is that much of the grid. That was developed in the forties and fifties and sixties served a lot of heavy duty manufacturing that doesn't exist in the United States anymore, so that capacity is there. Certainly the capacity is there at night and off peak hours. So for consumers like us all here on on the radio and zoom this morning Your utility would like nothing better than to have every one of their customers come home and plug in electric car and at your home at night, and that works very well. They have the excess capacity. However, in cities in Consider New York City people live in New York City live in high rises within multi unit dwellings. They don't all have the ability to or the place to plug their vehicle and at night you can't plug it in at night out on the street, for example, so those people and then as we move into commercial electric vehicles, they're going to require faster charging have public areas. So think of starting first at the airports. Um, I work with a company that's based in New York City that has recently purchased 400 Nissan Leafs, which is a big big order in the electric vehicle world. They're being put into service with uber lift drivers, So it's a Liberace service. Those drivers are going to rely completely on fast charge, so they're going to want to go to the Newark airport to JFK LaGuardia Be ableto pull in to a rest area. And talked their car off in 15 to 20 minutes and then go and and run throughout the day. Thes drivers are going to be driving 202 150 Miles a day, which is just about the range of of the new Nissan Leaf. But they're going to have to replenish that. So the commercial world is gonna require fast charge and it's certain areas. Fast charge is going to require that the utilities upgrade the feeders and the transformers that are put in there. I also want to mention Michael that there is money to do that. So your utility in New York City con ed on DH national grid that we also have here in upstate New York. They have what's called a utility make ready program. So if you're a developer or a fleet operator, and you want to put in these stations in their latest rate case, part of the settlement By the Public Service Commission. Is that the utilities make available about I'll tell you exactly. It's $751 million in New York say to pay for upgrading. The grid in order to handle these 152 350 k w D. C fast charge here that you have a client who had had that don't they put for Not fast charges, but they put for charging stations in his headquarters parking lot. That's a great idea. I mean, if you're those air, probably level two chargers Michael Yes. Yeah. I mean, if you're if you're going to the movies, or you're going to a hotel or you're going to work, we call that workplace charging level two. 240 volts that works very, very well. But the people like me who I I routinely will drive 300 miles in a day. So I'm going to require a fast charge at some point as I travel around the Northeast. You driving electric yet? Yes, I am I'm driving a plug in hybrid on DH worked on a program for cold weather testing for Toyota many many years ago. I've also for 12 years I drove a natural gas powered vehicle that was manufactured by Honda. And also managed a cold weather fuel cell demonstration project for Honda a number of years ago. So all this stuff is coming. It's it's exciting. Hi. I'm I've been around long enough that I was one of the drivers of General Motors Evey one. I'm going to say that's probably close to 30 years ago. You didn't get to keep that though, did you? I did not get to keep that That was who killed the electric car that you wish you had. You still had it. Is a couple around. There's there's a couple that are in museums and it was wonderfully designed car and if if you remember, I I kind of have an idea how old you are. You're you're in my age group, Michael. Uh, The Ah Ah, Back. Then there were two types of chargers. There was an inductive charger and there was a conductive charger and there were a few of each spotted around from this was in California for one of the utilities there.

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.

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.

So the very tip of Florida and head towards the Bahamas the route and center of the country stretch from New Orleans all the way to Saint Paul Minnesota, roughly twelve hundred miles that route forks of the Kentucky, Missouri border with those choosing the eastern route generally heading up to Detroit and those choosing the western row generally headed towards Saint Paul. Or heading to Saint Paul. Some also chose to head do north to from the fork and make it to Chicago for slaves on the western border of Missouri somewhat head west and hook around the top of the state by going through Kansas and Nebraska, territories and finally softened, Cedar Rapids that area of Iowa, and it typical journey to freedom generally began on a Saturday night or on Sunday because the slave owners did, you know, generally, go to church on Sundays, which does blow my mind. I know she's a different time. But how weird is that gonna got pray to got how to be the best slave owner, and you can be slave owners and God's own image. I mean, how truly ridiculous is that joking around. But but slave owners did tend to be very religious tend to be Protestant Christians. Specifically, you know, so the prey directly to God. And since people tend to pray obviously about what's going on. And generally what's going wrong in their lives. You know that when slaves would run away a lot of these southern Christians would just pray for their slaves to be returned to them. So people, you know, truly at various points in history.
