"lake michigan" Discussed on Curious City
"Hi I'm Linda Dominic Curiousity intern a couple of weeks ago we dove into an episode from the archives to explain why Chicago has. So many waterpipes we're continuing to feature stories that highlight environmental concerns facing the city, and today we return to episode from Twenty nineteen that covers another important issue how climate change will continue to impact Michigan. REPORTER MONICA HANG HAS MORE I'm standing on the walking path at Chicago Avenue near Lake Michigan, the city built this path just three years ago. But over the summer, it got buried under water again, pushing walkers into the bike lanes and turning the former ledge into a big puddle. It's all due to super high, lake levels levels that are freaking people out in the inspired at least one guy to ask curious city how climate changes can affect Lake Michigan. Water levels in the future he didn't want to be part of the story, but it's a great question. I mean, how far is this GonNa go should we start planning for water to just start sloshing up on the lakeshore drive soon? Well, I would say two things one when it comes to climate change the Great Lakes region is expected to fare a lot better than the coasts. To these high lake levels yet they broke some records in the spring, but this summer there still within the range of highs and lows, we've seen for hundreds of years to find out what drives these highs and lows I talked to Keith comport Lewitt's he monitors lake levels for the army. Corps of Engineers we track quantity of water that's known as the net basin supply, and that's rainfall and runoff minus evaporation. So get that the daily Lake level is basically water in water out in recent years, levels have shot up from lots of rain and not much evaporation. But about six years ago we hit record lows. So we've been at both ends of the spectrum in a very short time, and that's a Great Lakes water wars author Peter Annan's says we'll see more of the future what we're seeing now with climate change in the Great Lakes region is more rocking and rolling and water. We're seeing higher highs, lower lows, and we're seeing a movie more rapid transition from. Those lows and those highs and that's what's really driving people crazy. So we'll beaches keep disappearing or we'll hotter temperatures drive more evaporation and drops and lake levels I asked University of Michigan Professor Drew Grunwald. He does predictive modeling on the Great Lakes. It's not particularly clear whether water levels might go up through periods or down for periods of all of the computer models that are run there really isn't a persistent. Long term trend. Wow. So not even predictive models can tell us if we're headed for long-term highs or lows, but we do know will seem more volatility plus severe storms and coastal scientists Charlie should Biko says that could mean damage to the shore atmospheres warming and warmer atmosphere means more intense storms. So the more intense storms means larger waves and larger waves means more damage to structures along the shore and he's Not just talking about damage to dunes and bluffs, it's also erosion of the lake bed itself. So when the waves come in there, digging out at the bottom of the lake and the net effect of that is the water is going to be deeper than in that area, which means larger waves, making it to shore, and those large waves aren't just bad for the beach they could make swimming more dangerous to. So, to answer the question, no one is super. Sure of climate change will cause the lake to go up or down in long run but we should expect more volatile swings and lake levels, more powerful storms and some big waves that could make a mess of the shore. Is Water Mama? To be. High Water Papa Up. To. The again, aside from tracking some of your big environmental concerns, Russell still following along with parents, teachers and students to get glimpse of the new school year is like in the Chicago area. Across the board, what we're hearing is this year seems to involve a lot of hard choices for parents and guardians. Parents like Marine, Kelleher who remembers how challenging remote learning was at her daughter's CPS school last spring. The any other kids for a long time. We had way too much screen time. It was really hard to manage my job and her learning some rain decided to go in a different direction for the fall her daughter who's in sixth grade started this year at a new private school, the Chicago Free School in a small class of ten students for three days a week she attend school in person in an all outdoor classroom and the other two days she's learning remotely from home and So far marine says this new structure has been working. Well, the opportunity to go back to you go to school and I. Go to work is a big load off. It's a really big load off and even if it's not for very long because we'll be all mode again, very student just having a little break from that is great. It's a break she says, she wishes everyone had I'm really sad that like our systems aren't figuring out how to make stuff like this possible for. Money more families in the city are everybody Mississippi Rain says, the outdoor learning will only last as long as the nice weather does. Once the temperatures start to drop her daughter will be back to all remote learning. Which means this you will continue to change and we'll check back with Murray.

Negative Mount Pleasant
"So there's this tiny town in Wisconsin called Mount pleasant populations just twenty, six, thousand people, village and life in Mount. Pleasant is usually is quiet as you'd expect. Their suburb of Racine, home of malted milk and the sight of some of America's largest cabbage farms. But that's the city now presents the suburb place were nothing really happens. Until last year when the village became the site of a completely unprecedented massive international experiment. Truth. Even Mundane. It's going to tell the story this fall. I went to pleasant to meet this woman named Kelly Gallaher. Hi. Halley. commanded she lives in his ivy-covered split. Level House my home is located about. A little bit over a mile from from Lake Michigan so. Did she say? It's really beautiful out here by receiving. It's like a very light blue almost like a Caribbean vibe. It's it's all about the light I think it's magical. I think. I even like how the lake looks on my gps. Like it that much Kelly has been here for thirty years and she used to be an arts educator. But now she's basically retired. When did you start getting involved in kind of more? I don't I don't know what to call it activism or just Kinda village. What would you call it well? What if there is a name? I think other people have a lot of names for for what I do but. Ones I I probably wouldn't care to repeat the polite name that Kelly's detractors might use for her is busy body. She's an extremely vocal participant and the town's local democracy and her main stage is this place called village. Okay. The hours upon us I would. Like to open the village board meeting, Order Religions. Village Hall which sits right next to the local white is where the residents of mount pleasant all gather twice a month with their village government to talk about all the local issues that need fixing through weeds this high in the yard of one of the vacation homes this. Hi. It's been vacant for I. Don't know how many years gale for years. It's been vacant. We're going to have some recommendations and numbers for the Lake Park Fluffy Rosen, which is very Army number one on our agenda, our softball game we had this last Sunday for the case athletics. That went over very well to I didn't get any reports of injuries so we're good. Pictures in the paper though in Racine County the mount. Pleasant. Village Hall meetings are famous very well attended. They actually taped the meetings and upload them to the website, and if you're like me and have watched every single wine, you will look forward to the moment when Kelly good evening my name is Kelly Gallaher. Her Red Hair Hoop earrings steps up to the Mike Lees Captain Brian. Smith. Collected thirty three, thousand, seven, hundred and fourteen dollars an overtime pay in addition to his salary vacation. Her tally is basically the local civics watchdog. A joint parks has had no minutes published since April two, thousand, fourteen almost every week she uses her allotted three minutes to make it very clear to the people in power that she has her eye on them is outrageous by mount pleasant standards. Hauled corruption and we intend to get to the bottom of it. Thank you. Thank you for weekly Sunshine and good share. That man who sounds very exasperated that is Dave degroot village president. He is sitting behind this big long table in this large office chair at the center of the screen, and he's flanked on both sides by his six village trustees. Dave. Runs this meeting David Kelly. Like each other they disagree on pretty much. Every single thing to do with the future of Mount Pleasant. Kelly has a sign on her front lawn that says David degroot must resign and David grew lives ten doors down from her. It's an intense block and Kelly told me that it got especially bad about a year ago when she was helping Dave's opponent in the village election. The previous March when he was running for office, he sent out a press release a basically accusing me of egging his house. Egging his house Yes yes. He filed a police report and suggested in his press release that I had been involved in the attack the political at an actual literal egg attack on his home, which the police report did not verify at all. In fact, it was the the described it as as teenagers and a single egg that was tossed on his driveway was hardly an attack I was not there. I only buy organic eggs which are far too expensive to throw it. Anyone's house let alone someone I don't like it was it was ridiculous. So it's fair to say that my relationship with with him was contentious I think he's a fool and a terrible per village president.

Shatter-Proof: How Glass Took Over the Kitchenand Ended Child Labor
"I am a Coloratura Mr Beast not Annette's. Well, whatever you are on record sal show Debra sent you over here. He didn't. You told me was your age. I nine and in spite of what you think. There are some professions where practice does make perfect. Julie Andrews pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman and still managing to shatter a wine glass with her gorgeous and super powerful voice at least in the movie Victor Victoria. But you know you can't believe everything you see on the big screen like breaking a wine glass with just a perfect flat yeah. I always been a long held ambitions. Break wine glasses of the sound. Some of you longtime gastropod listeners might recognize that Voice Zoe. Laughlin. Is none other than the star of our very first episode who said that mango sorbet tastes sublime on gold spoons hers is the voice that is inspired the purchase of a thousand golden spoons or at least a half dozen that we know about though is not just spoon aficionado. She's a material scientist and director of the Institute of Making at University College London, and this episode we were excited to talk to her again not about gold spoons. But about glass I mean even though I should've understand it on paper. Everything about glasses still sort of extraordinary mysterious like just the fact that is transparent when pretty much everything else isn't transparent is extraordinarily we have a lot of questions this episode for one. How did something? So seemingly delicate and breakable get to be so ubiquitous in the kitchen and also how come you could never put a drinking glass in the oven, but you can cook in a glass dish. What does the? Invention of the bottling machine have to do with a beautiful stretch of protected sand dunes along the shores of Lake Michigan or with the rise of Ketchup and Coca Cola and the abolition of Child Labor for that matter and more importantly can you actually shatter glass using sound did zoe pull it off by the way Cynthia you might not have realized this but this episode is dedicated to your mother glassmaker extraordinaire. Of. Glasswork on display in my house as we speak and I have at least five pieces of fused and stained Tama Graber, glass mom, this one's for you. What is glass? All glass everywhere in the world is at least seventy percent made of sand that's been melted down and it's mixed together in a way that the atoms don't have any kind of order them, and that's what gives rise to it being transparent. You've already heard from Zoe now it's time to meet our other two intrepid glass enthusiasts who will be inducting us into the mysteries of this material. This episode been Speiser journalist and author of a very enjoyable book called the World Grain, the story of Sand and how it transformed civilization and an Isa Ramirez, material scientist and author of another totally delightful. Book. Called the Alchemy of US humans and matter transform one, another Zoe and Isa and bins are all about glass. You cannot overstate how ubiquitous glass is and how important it is to the modern world in which we all live I'm just looking around the kitchen where I'm standing there glass bottles holding olive oil. There's glass windows they're glass fixtures around the glass lightbulbs to everything from you know salt shakers and I glass lenses to things like twenty ton telescope lenses in the world's most powerful telescopes. It's in the fiber optic cables that connect to the Internet fiber optic cables made it literally of Spun. Glass. So really without glass we wouldn't have modern civilization. So we've established that this miraculous foundation of modern civilization is made of melted down sand with a few other ingredients thrown in but to go back another step, and this is a strange question but what is sand and is all sand the same thing? The Word San means just any small pieces Greens right of any hard substance so sand can be. Anything, you know it can be flint it can be courtside anything any kind of stone but the most common form of sand. Most of the sand in the world is courts, which is silicon dioxide and to make glass. That's what you need. You need court sand and you need a specially high security court sand. This seems very fortunate. You need court sand to make glass, and that turns out to be what most of the sand is primarily because courts is so hard that it just outlasts all the other rocks is they're all getting ground down together. You do still have to clean the courts end. Up a bit and get out the last remaining impurities and you have to add a few other ingredients to lower the melting temperature of quartz, and then you heat it up, you need a huge amount of heat. So while I like one, thousand, seven, hundred degrees Celsius which mostly in Fahrenheit I mean it's over three thousand degrees Fahrenheit based bloody hot. Eventually the sand melts and then it re congeals and a weird thing happens when it turns into a solid again, courts is a crystal but glass is not what a weird structure because it's not a crystal crystals are actually made up of atoms arranged like soldiers. In rows but glass is sort of like picture of kindergartners at resets, atoms are all over the place, and so that's what makes it unusual but it's that chaos in the arrangement of atoms that actually gives rise to it having the property of transparency.

It's you don't always have the best selection especially at the supermarket of tomatoes. You like farmers markets or your own garden. I what do you look look for. When you're when you're going to look for a perfect well i look for a tomato that has a bright color whether it's green or pink or red but that it's not just a blush lush of color because usually it's not right. It should feel heavy in your hand and if you're shopping for tomatoes at a supermarket this time of year. You're probably probably making a mistake because the farmers markets are so full of them. I also wanna say my famous roasted tomato sauce room roasted putin esco which has anchovies anchovies and olives go to the farmer's market and ask for seconds these of the slightly bruce tomatoes perfect for making sauce and sheep and i'll say say one thing the famous julia child once told me do not put tomatoes in refrigerator here bruins that esta absolutely chilean new tomatoes refrigerator or no no okay.

"Own labeling of them as competent wasn't any protection. I'm going to also add that. One of your findings was that older older employees who were being laid off and told that their skills were out of date within almost immediately brought back as contract workers for lower pay. That's right and look the other thing had to say about this is there are ways to <hes> change your workforce. They may be a little slower than <hes> mass layoff <hes> but they are fair and <hes> as is my co author arianna tobin said in another context. Here's the thing about age. It happens to all of us and so that the person who's thirty or thirty five and saying hey. That's not me that as you said before. It's not you've now but it is you in ten years or five years so you should be interested in fairness here because it's going to come back to bite you if you're not wouldn't i._b._m. Say about these accusations. They say they're very proud of their record of diversity and inclusion and in fact i._b._m. Has a long history of particularly on rays of being liberal and being progressive. What's amazing about this is is that if you look at it the one thing that's left out his age <hes> and look robin. Can i just say one other thing about this. You could think that i._b._m. Was a one off but one of the other projects we tackled was to ask the question why i._b._m. One off or is this widespread and there's really strong long evidence that ages commission dumping out fifty year old. There's an older <hes> is very widespread in the american labor market today and the companies. Maybe maybe saying it's because they want fresher thinking they want more and more there. They may be saying more technologically adept people but is it. What about money. Yes look critique against older. People goes something like this. We cost more because of healthcare and were cognitively diminished diminished. There's something to the fact of people cost more of because of healthcare by the way so do women in their thirties who are having children and we would wouldn't want policy that says if you get pregnant you get dumped and as for cognitive <hes> diminishment. I just think we're working with very very old. Notions of what cognitive ability is we're leaving something like thirty years longer than we were. Generation are generated two generations ago. Oh and we are leaving healthy for thirty years longer and so the critique is old. This is personal for you. You were laid off a few years back. It was a startup. Just your personal understanding of what happens. Well look. This is personal to me. I was laid off. I'm a single father of twins ends and i was laid off in the very week. They started college and i thought i'd be out for a couple of weeks. A couple of months. I was out fifteen months which did nothing in pretty to our finances. The perspective of being both older and laid off and having kids were twenty two and just starting out in the labor market and facing using a world a decade of internships and one year contract gigs is that you get a perspective of what's happening at both ends of the age age spectrum in this united states labor market and what you're watching the fraying of the employer employee relationship which we've counted on to keep the society together certainly during the postwar period well h- just real brief peter gosling i mean is this a time that has passed. I mean one of the things you right about. Propublica is all the ibm are said to you this we were in for life. This is what we thought but is that a delusion. Now i mean that's just not the way the workforce works anymore. It's not the way the workforce works right now. As a society we have to ask if we wanna have this other other different way of <hes> of working where it is all a transactional. It is all temporary. It's all side hustles and i. I think that the answer is if we really imagined what it would be like to have that kind of world. We wouldn't want that kind of world and we wouldn't afford that..

"I._b._m. Did i think the big finding here is that when you start trying to figure out how many people are affected you got to look closely at was that retirement really voluntary voluntary and knowing what the law requires retirements to be or was it forced on them be forced. Tell us how we couldn't be <hes> involuntary. It's pretty simple i._b._m. Told people who are <hes> fifty five and older many of their older workers who they decided to <hes> to lay off that they were retiring and many of these people many of the people we talked to said no. I'm not retiring. You're laying me off and ibm said no. You're retiring hiring now. That counts for something because another things if you're retiring you don't get unemployment benefits so <hes> people fought this but not successfully well. We'll get to more of the cases as you say it. You just sits on the important. We're not talking about the elderly here. We're talking about people over forty over fifty that's right. I think one of the reasons is important is that people over forty and fifty but younger than for example. My age of late sixties ineffective stranded. We don't have a lot of social safety nets for people who get laid off when they're fifty years old and many of these people end up being out of work for extremely long times and many of them eat through a lot of the retirement tyrant savings the very things that were expected to have for when we do get to be sixty five so that they're they're kind of stranded in the middle. It makes a mess of people's financial lives and under personal lives but also if you're thirty. Let's say or forty and you're listening to this and thinking well. That's not me will it sort of is in ten years so we want to lay the the groundwork here and go to the case in austin. What are the allegations in that case against i._b._m. <hes> the allegations this is a case in the federal district court in austin austin of top level sales person for one of i._b._m.'s products was told <hes> he was resigning prepatory to retirement and he has said <hes> nothing of the sort of that <hes> he was laid off and the hearing tomorrow is about whether or not <hes> i._b._m. C. go johnny remedy can be deposed on this subject. He you cite in your political reporting many of i._b._m.'s own words from confidential documents and and one for instance talks about the company having a strategy to correct seniority mix meaning. They wanted more millennials than active campaign to get millennials just taking taking i._b._m.'s position for a moment if a company feels that we are a technology company and this is a time of changing technology analogy. We want younger people in who are more comfortable with new technology. What is wrong with that well. Let's let's try to things one. One is this issue of being comfortable technology. There are lots of images that the young are better at technology and they may be about certain kinds of technology and they're not about others so there is the we have to watch assumptions about technological capabilities. One of the things that i showed in we showed in this story is that people who i._b._m. Rated as very competent technologically and in doing their jobs were not protected at all from layoff the fact of their competence and i._b._m.'s.

Minister boris johnson faces a brexit showdown today as parliament reconvenes after a summer break lawmakers are expected to vote on a bill that would stop the united kingdom from leaving the european union without a deal on october thirty first with johnson says he would do there are already indications educations. He may lose that vote. He's lost his one seat majority in parliament with the defection today of a conservative member joining us now is bbc political correspondent rob watson and he's at westminster rob. We hear the protesters behind you but set the scene for us today. How important is this day extremely important dam and i. I would argue that this is one of the most important weeks in british politics since one thousand forty five since the end of the second world war regular listeners will know jeremy that often say that this is the most is profound political crisis. Britain has experienced since the end of the war and what's at stake right. Now i think is first of all the future of brexit they'll be votes on that a bit later we can discuss that it's also about britain's constitutional arrangements who who's going to be governing the country because their wealth may well be a general election action in the all fake and lastly. I think it's about one of the major british potent political parties the conservative party what does its future as it suddenly going to become a sort of right wing pro brexit parts yours at gains remain abroad church. Absolutely everything that you can imagine is at stake had jeremy okay well. Let's talk about what lawmakers are trying to do today some lawmakers they want to make it basically impossible for the prime minister to crash out of the e._u. With no deal on on october thirty first the essentially a coalition. It's been called a sort of rebel alliance liken to star wars. That's been fancifully live but they are a rebel. Alliance of opposition m._p.'s some from the governing conservative party who essentially want to pass a law saying look if the if the u._k. Government hasn't reached an agreement demint the european union about an older -ly brexit by nineteen th of october we would delay brexit until the end of january of twenty twenty cancelled until next year now. It seems most likely that they will they will win. They will win this vote when it comes but then we get the next big question that i mentioned as okay why happens next how boris johnson has said he will not in any circumstances ask for the the european union for delay to brexit and a staffel saying what i would want wants as a snap general action and then the question would become well is he really serious about vines and opposition participate right brilliant. We'll see you there. Yeah well and there's a question about that too. I've been watching over the weekend that jeremy corbyn. The leader of the labour party has sort of been saying yeah okay. Let's have an election but some other people in the labor party say no. We're gonna fall into boris johnson's trap. If we say yes to general election yes that's right for a couple cla reasons so yes. The labor party wants an election but some around the one that boris johnson could say okay. We'll have an election on. Let's say october. The fourteen i think the data that's been mentioned but that event with event changes the date until just after brexit so sort of so brexit what actually happened during an election action campaign and the and the labor party doesn't want that at all and of course some labor politicians have a different problem that problem is jeremy corbyn and night is that they are on the wire. That's if there wasn't election now. The labor party would lose it because mr coleman is polarizing a figure as boris johnson johnson. They are a long long way behind in the opinion polls rob. A lot has to happen just this week because parliament is about to be suspended by the order of the queen on the request of boris johnson..
