David McCormick and Mehmet Oz Locked in Tight Race for GOP Primary
"At the end of last night, Dave was down 2000, 752 votes, meaning Tuesday night. Today, roughly 10,000 out of 33,000 absentee ballot votes were counted, and we, meaning the McCormick campaign, averaged a 10% victory, closing the gap by 1509 votes. Dave is now only down 1243 votes with an estimated 20,000 GOP absentee votes left to count. Dave is going to win. You'd rather be Dave McCormick with those numbers, and that trendline and you'd rather be Doctor Oz, and both Dwayne and I did the algebra. It's a ratio and of course Dwayne got it right and I got it wrong. But when we compared notes, it looks like. If everything holds the same, that at the end of round one, there'll be a recount. Mandatory recount McCormick should win by 2200 votes. I had him winning by 409 votes, and I had the wrong denominator. There are a couple of horses in there that might come close, but not close enough. One is Lancaster county's all screwed up. Another is Allegheny county is not all absentee ballots are out. There they have 30 odd precincts that have been counted. But Allegheny county is Dave McCormick's home, so one would have shown he's going to win those. But we'll know more tomorrow morning and we'll know a lot more Monday and then there will be a

Pennsylvania School Board Member Calls Parents 'Village Idiots'
"There's this incredible op-ed that was written by Richard Robinson. Which is probably never heard of him before. I hadn't either until this story came out. He is a school board member on the York suburban school district board. That is in York county, Pennsylvania. Now, I know your county better than most. It is not a suburb of Philadelphia. It's out about a little bit west of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It's in a more rural part of Pennsylvania. It's about an hour and a half north of Baltimore is where York is. And not far from Harrisburg. The state capitol. Well, this school board member, Richard Robinson, wrote a op-ed an opinion piece. He said, no, I do not work for you parents. York suburban school district board member, Richard Robinson wrote an op-ed. He said that the ability to be able to show up to school board meetings is the following. The provision gives residents of a school district the chance to vent their spleens about exorbitant taxes or demand subjects be taught properly the way they were during the most frigid period of the Civil War. In the past, more often than not nobody showed up, but not these days as social media outlets and national news broadcasts and our local newspapers tell us school boards are now the new battleground in the fight for America's future amen they are. This bothers Richard Robinson, he says parents who show up and give public comment have, quote, the collective intelligence of a village idiot. Now remember, this guy wrote this. He's not some mistake. It's not some caught on camera Mike. No, he wrote this in an opinion piece. Some members of my community. Here is my community. Appear to interpret this part of broad board meetings as the occasion to tell board members, why they have the collective intelligence of village idiot, and how the school district ought to be addressing real problems. He continues by saying far too many elected officials have shown over the past two years that the consent of the governed is a little more than an inconvenient speed bump on the road to advancing their unpopular agendas. Mocking and dismissing the concerns of community may be cathartic for petty dictators, but it's not a path to electoral success. This is what Nicole Neely said in response to Richard Robinson. She said that and she runs the parents defending education. This article continues. Richard Robinson by saying, with all due respect to the men and women who come up to me and say, I'm a taxpayer you work for me. Robinson the school board member says, no, I don't. I don't work for you. I was elected by the people who voted to represent you. What? No, so I don't work for you. I was elected by the people who voted to represent you.

But if you scour the records are companies house had aim does appear in two thousand and six this sign on the incorporation of charity called richmond fellowship foundation international off the being force out of charities in the early ninety s and then laying low for a decade. Johansen was back. It's this charity which becomes rpm fi. The outfit running lancaster lodge and the same organization which in twenty fifteen. The chair of trustees. Linda aid has just discovered is in terrible. Shape it is close to insolvent has no real assets and its finances are closely bound up with that of the johnson family. Maloney that now. Linda knows the backstory. She's found the set of minutes that's been altered between board meetings to allow payment to elian of one hundred thousand pounds. Now she's concerned. The charity could face allegations of theft. So she goes to the commission for advice and basically we were sent home with a flea area. We can't help you. I mean we devastate because we'd always thought we had the charge. He commission support. If you like in our back pocket. The charity commission was meant to be lens nuclear option. She hoped that comment on takeover. Because this is a charity working in mental health. The stakes are high in. Math is right yet. The charity commission doesn't help back in the ninety s. it simply invited elian sin to resign decades later the chooses to do nothing. We basically saw the writing on the wall and in the end it was a solicitor. Who said look. Why don't you just resign. Resign as aboard. Let elliott half the charity and. just walk. Because you're between a rock and a hard place she wouldn't work with you. You're responsible but you're not in control so we did. We got the accounts filed. I up to march twenty fourteen okay because that was important but then we will without the trustees who would keep lancaster lodge safe. Johnson had away all. Pfi duncan lawrence. Who had worked for her before. It's also high as peggy. Chew grew does a clear path from that fight with trustees over financial mismanagement to the disaster of twenty sixty. The organization with the power to interview is the charity commission. Its own guidance. Says basically the more important charity is to its clients. The more important it is that it is run carefully and sustainably lanka solarge literally kept its residents alive. It all to have been a high priority for the regular ophir fi was bringing in more than a million pounds a year so in income terms it was in the top three percent of institutions. It served very vulnerable people and the complaint came not from a member of the public from the chair of the trustees yet. It did nothing. The charity commission has the power to demand sweeping changes chinese and banned people from charity leadership. It really uses them. It is as one government figure. More other register of charities than regulator in this case. The charity commission didn't know who johnson wolves because that lost their records of their investigation into that incompetence in the nine hundred ninety s when they couldn't do their job properly in hundred fifty. The charity commission told us the coroner who investigated the circumstances of sophie's death fund that failings in the charities leadership and oversight where in part to blame we opened a statutory inquiry into the charity focused on assessing going wrong and putting it right for the future dot inquired remains ongoing. The contrast with physical care is star when problems blow up in the nhs we have a public inquiry on wall to wall press coverage here. We have an inquest. Barely made the inside news pages. We know no action will stake in against eliana johnson. She kept the name of the paper while all of the others do grew was fine. Three thousand pounds for her part in the mismanagement of lancaster large the chart the ophira fi was fined forty thousand. Pounds duncan lawrence will sentence to full months in prison for refusing to comply with the inquest into sophie's death. Though he has no conviction in relation to his professional conduct. We also for common from all. Three elian hasn't replied. Peggy grew house a new name. Marlene peggy moylan. And we tracked down a number and email but again no response we. Delivered duncan lawrence's letter to his home. He told us he might give us access to all his email. As an food does not approve him to be a whistle blower in return for the he called an incentive when we asked if you meant cash lawrence said he'd reflect on his wishlist for the documents.

When sophie died two months later the qc to- loss seek you see visited richmond psychosocial international in much twenty rating.

"That place. absolutely it was any anson the now ninety-one-year-old remember earlier. Who's influenced drove vincent. Hell out of the charity. It became a bullying dictatorship. And i know that's a number of the other senior directors who were there. Increment felt bullied and dictated to by any and they. That's why they left very quick. She was happy with the threats but ultimately anything that went on there have to be action by any johnson who has called south of charities in the early nineties was controlling appear fi and few people realize the extent of our influence because she was neither a trustee nor employee outsiders with have no means of seeing her grip on the charity for a while she was kept in check by habuto. Trustees bonaventure early. They to forced to resign. And the changes that led to sophie's that was set in motion resigning from the charities decision that still haunts lend aid. She was chair of the trustees up until the middle of two thousand fifteen before she left. She wanted to make sure that the child was able to continue. Its valuable work at lancaster. Large showed that squat. All our efforts were about. I'm in mostly. They were about preserving lancaster note and the wonderful work that was going on. Which makes it even more. Ironic vincent marched up the building and though thing resulted in the suicide of a beautiful but very vulnerable young woman frankly desert so much better chance in the firing line. Here i'm yet. She's very elderly and in poor health. Chas long track record of mental health provisions behind her perhaps the seems unfair. Not least because her name never appears on the paperwork. And there's a reason for that. It's why this story has so much more than just the single tragic case. It's about the system. I castle vulnerable people and that has gone wrong in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. The charity commission that's the government body that regulates and inspects charities received allegations of mismanagement at elian since charities. The allegations pointed the role and influence at the charities. And here's where it gets complicated. Because johnson was a director or a trustee of a host of charities with all vaguely similar names that's the richmond fellowship the fellowship charitable foundation the richmond fellowship international later. There's also the richmond fellowship foundation international which becomes richmond psychosocial foundation international or are confused yet. It's possible that is the intention certainly. The charity commission was confused by the flow of money between the charities and the answer them its findings managed to force elian out of her original charity. The richmond fellowship. When you hear about any english charity scandals be of kids company ox fans. Save the children all the cup trust. The charity commission is usually not involved until things have run their calls so true to stem it form back then. It only invited her to resign address. Teasha a second child and she simply chose not you know a the basic question is why after the revelations about early and richmond fellowship. The charity commission allowed hurt to set up other charities. Why how could that possibly happen. That's linda again. A former trustee when she began volunteering at the pierre in twenty fourteen. She doesn't know any of this nor she to go vast chaz soon after she is very charming and she is also very powerful woman. I mean she walks into a room and there's an aura around her. You know you can feel it. Lynn set out to get to know the charity better. The first thing that i wanted to do as share was to go around to each of the four houses and the staff and get a feeling for you know what was going on and how things were and so on and so forth did not like that at all. She didn't want me to. Why do you want to do that. And i said well look chair of the board. I need to understand. I need to meet these people. They need to meet me. And i need to understand if there are any issues or problems. Linfen one house which was hardly being used another hot staff members in conflict. That was one bright spots. Lancaster large was reduced role in the crown. And i mean. Vincent did the most. Oh gosh i mean. It's just so impressive as a therapeutic community the incredible incredible what he he was able to offer mainly troubled young people. You know like lovely. Sophie vincent with amazing and he had a great team around him. It was deeply impressive. Poll there was an issue. It soon became clear. That la didn't actually want me to do anything but endorse her decisions. That was my job. It's around this time. That lynn chats through a fellow volunteer and learns for the first stein about what she calls the guardian filed. Now these are all should never have found herself. They'll inaccessible to anyone. Without paid access to archives all the time to look them up in a library you own stumble across then because of a legal settlement from nineteen ninety-five. And i'll come back to that but first we need to meet david brindell. He was the guardian. Newspaper's affairs correspondent between nineteen eighty eight and twenty twenty. It was brindell who had reported the stories that lynn found in the guardian fide but whose byline never appeared on another piece about johnson or charities. When i tracked him down for this story brindell said i've been waiting for someone like you to come along for thirty s that had been a an initial article about ally in the sunday times Then a year later managers within the fellowship charitable foundation which was one of her charities approached me with concerns about the way. It was being run. Their concerns were raised with the charity commission which reported in nineteen ninety-two expressing of the view. That while there was no evidence that charitable funds had been diverted for private Nonetheless she had failed separate harrison personal financial affairs of the charities with which she was uninvolved. David writes his first article on elian sin and her charities on the back of that nineteen ninety-two charity commission reports. She had flatly refused to resign. And within weeks of of that first charity commission report in one thousand nine hundred. Two her lawyer. Arnold goodman and david asked her champion former to famous headed through the observer wrote a letter to the guardian in which they said she will not be resigning looking back on on this now. It seems an odd way for the charity commission to have gone about its regulatory business to invited somebody in this position to re to step down rather than to to directed and of course If the person then flatly refuses and says we accept your inquiry findings they had nowhere else to turn at that point so managers who continuing to see the same patterns of behavior on her part in terms of the intermingling of her personal financial affairs with those of the charities shopping driving lessons insurance travel all being paid for from the charities bank account they they continue to to to raise their concerns through me. David wrote a flurry of articles. Between april and july nineteen ninety-three outlining concerns that will eight managers of homes run by the fellowship charitable foundation had complained to the charity commission about financial mismanagement by johnson and her undo control over staff and decision-making elian was finally publicly pressured into resigning had trusteeship of the charity. And then she sued the guardian and david brindell for libel because they're reporting alleged. She had stolen money from a charity. She argued that. David had neglected to point out that in her view that she was owed at any one time much more by way of money she had She had said she had loaned to the charity. Then she was drawing in any expenses. A criminal. The told the guardian thought. The material available to the newspaper presented a clear case of taft and the false accounting. He also suspected the answer. Guilty of conspiracy to defraud and steal but it turned out not to be the view of our the council. We retained george common. Qc who was perhaps the most famous barrister of his age and his view was that we would struggle to prove that and had had stolen money because of the the partly because of the complexity of the network of charities so uncommon advice the case never went to trial. The garden reached an out of court settlement with janssen. The newspaper paid had damages and legal costs made a donation to charity and printed. An apology was a decision that would cost a long shadow thing that settlement basically put a cap on certainly guardians investigation of elliott. Anson's affairs. and i imagine it also sent a clear warning to other media organizations about what would.

Say and the children of the children's person diet in contrast it's clear that the residence in the room have a very clear idea of their needs and the instinctively focus on the details that matter. That concerned about overnight staffing levels was born from experience as the women. Tell a story that should have set alarm bells ringing of the charity off.

One more in anything now training and women were right to. Chris duncan lawrence over his suitability for the job and his training. Because duncan lawrence was not a medically trained doctor. In fact lawrence wasn't any sort of doctor he purchased his degree in administration from knightsbridge university degree mail based in denmark inc antigua and barbuda that received it's mail in scotland. Lawrence was certainly no doctor of psychotherapy as to grow told residents but something else came up in this meeting to something which the residents had no way of knowing was a warning.

While the series of decisions made by the charity commission which regulates unregistered charities and by lawyers mend was no way. Any of the women could have known this.

I referred was the last chance to break out of a cycle of hospitalization and work towards an independent life as residents. They had to do their fair share of chores on to help with the cooking.

But the stalled. Help you assegais. Paint a picture of a wound. Supportive place a home of nine residents. One of four homes. Ophir fi ran key to that treatment. There were regular sessions with the therapist. Many of them had spent several years in and out of hospitals and psychiatric units missing out on much of their education on life. The way they taylor it they were lucky to get a place at all. It took almost. I many times them to realize that something different needed to change so it was no easy not get any kind of help waiver for the for the years but we had before we were very fortunate to have been able to get a sense of before and off there in the story when clarisa says before she means before their access to terry p will suddenly stop before the emphasis shifted from psychotherapy to pilates from being the safest place that we've slopes out in amateur days weeks to like being right on the edge again. I'm just being completely. I've written with like fear. Basically before a man called. Vincent held abruptly left vincent. Hell was the widely admired care manager. Atlanta's large he oversaw everything. They would have the first group process meeting in the morning. They might have their own individual therapy during the days. One on one with the soccer therapist depending on the day they would either do one on one therapy group therapy activities on food shopping. They'd be a lot of music playing piano singing guitar etcetera and helping to cook you know and it was fundamentally ought to be part of how to establish the running of a of a community away from its living the practical nature of living cooking feeding etc. Right the way up to you know making sure that was clean accenture. Can you what to do. And there was a crisis. Penny if the residents were particularly unwell potentially maybe say having in a suiciding. Rda shen then they would be on the kaffir works and have regular check ins through the nights and through the day so it was always evan flow of what needed to happen. You had to be very reflexive to each situation. But in january twenty sixteen dot ebb and flow those routines of therapy domesticity disability suddenly stopped. I came back on the monday of a beginning of jan to an email that basically had asked me to sack my clinical supervisor all the psychotherapists that were supporting the residence old if the therapists who are on placement hampton unique. It was as though everything that we would just completely bane an isolated every plan every route every routine and things that contained in the health of the residents had suddenly being taken away for vincent is was the final straw coming off the week sell facility from buses and other staff members and he left he was only allowed to return to collect his things so the first sofi larison whose son you of his the butcher was when he appeared in the house. One monday to say he wasn't coming back. I remember one of the girls just slipping down on the floor. If you not just standing that with a back against slumping to the floor it was incredibly emotional at nine these people. They're not my friends. But there are people that i worked with an eaton with played music with stopped killing themselves as well as help them if you need them in so many different contexts and i think there was a mutual respect amongst everybody who worked there and a resum that lee would do with that support and keep them safe. We know now that few them full months of the vincent was forced out. So-fi takes her own life from vantage point. five years. On and off to the inquest into her death. It seems blindingly obvious that suddenly stopping access to therapy and offering yoga. Instead isn't going to help that. It is in fact dangerous if the so called parity of esteem between physical mental healthcare existed which it should law. This would be like replacing surgeons with yogis. But what's extraordinary is how cited the residence. Swear at the time about the disaster was coming their way. And i don't have to rely on hindsight yea because back in early twenty sixteen. Some residents were so concerned about changes at lancaster lodge. They started secretly recording meetings. They've allowed us access to the tapes in many ways the tapes so distressing to listen to because we know what's coming but also because it's clear the women no doth abruptly. Removing their access to therapy is just detrimental to their recovery but dangerous to and the first meeting.

I just immediately my my world shifts in a negative light like it's it's painful it's a it's shocking so yeah i would say assume that no one ever wants to hear that ever again so once you know of someone's new name and pronouns those are the names browns. I transitioned the year and a half ago. If you tell a story you know utah. D- if you tell a story about something that you and i did a trip that we took iceland. We went to iceland together for five years ago ghetto to iceland with my friend. Kara she and i had a great time. It's that easy like you know even if in your brain space. I don't look the way i do now in your in your of me It just doesn't matter. Yeah that's an interesting thing is that it's only been a little while but already this is humans are amazing. We are memories. You know so my memories of you are not. They're undergoing sort of fuzzy phase right now totally noticed that. Oh wow that's weird now if you take by memories of or doing that now imagine a time before we had photographs right before we had photographs of human brain would only see itself may be in a pond or in like a stalagmite or something you know.

We didn't know we were always what we were in the moment yet right so the advent of being able to archive that. I do paintings if you're a wealthy noble personality and then through photographs. I have to think that his change something in our brain structure or is changing something in our brain structure in our ability to perceive ourselves for the first time in multiple tenses. I don't know. I'm getting off on a tangent here but yeah i mean yeah i feel. It's as i know that there are a lot of things about me that are going to follow me for the rest of my life. You know lake.

But why would a woman or a man or anybody get pleasure since and shutting a guy down on Super Bowl Sunday at the you know, after 11 months of trying to scramble just to stay alive. Don't know. And I don't know what her motive was. I can only tell you that this is part and parcel to a lot of the complaints. I'm getting from business owners and restaurant owners about inspectors coming in having a bit of a god complex and coming in. Knowing they have the total power on then some of these restaurants that have been just like repeated targets of the health department where it's like I remember when Barbara for rare County Health Department director said, You know when I say Why is this happening that hammer because, well, we have 33,000 licensed restaurants in L. A county. And she says, You know, it's not. It's not easy to get to all of them like, well, no, because they're fixated on 20 of them, and they keep going back to these 20 over and over and over and over and over. And you know, and I think what happens is that you've got a lot of pushback from restaurant owners because they're like, you know, we've had it and you know, it's what happened with Tin Horn flats in here in Burbank. The place up in Agoura Hills. I think, um I can't remember the name of that place up there. But He was defiant of that also, and and I think that's what was going on with the county. The county is like, you know, they're not gonna back down. They're gonna put all their time. Money and resource is into teaching these people a lesson.

Furniture Finishing Q&A with Mike Mascelli Finishing
"This questions from chips. Stoltzfus and chip. If you have anything to do with. Stoltzfus is restaurant in lancaster. Pencil or no bird in hand pennsylvania. Oh country i miss that place dearly. All right i have been a professional woodworker for almost twenty five years. I started out in a large making church furniture and have since worked mostly in smaller cabinet shops. In that time every finisher. I've ever worked with said that you shouldn't san to sand higher than one. Twenty or one fifty grit. They claimed once you get higher than fifty polish is the would not let stain it here. Like it is designed yet. I often hear you talking about standing to three twenty or higher before finishing all of the shops. I've worked with have had have used wiping saints with some type of lacquer. Topcoat is the difference in sanding due to different finishes. I've started using rubio. monaco. And i've noticed that it gives a smoother finish if the piece of sand to the higher grits. Thank you for your time and great work with the pun. So well i've heard this many times Thank you for asking a couple of things that i think we should just sorta get On the table it matters a lot. What kind of would you're working with More so even than the than the finished. So if you're working in oak or mahogany and really open. Grain pours wood particularly oak. You can get away with a lot of stuff on on course grit sandy because you have such deep pours and lines in the in the in the grain of the as it is if you're in maple or you're in cherry It's a very different game. So you have You're talking about church furniture. A lot of that furniture's oak. Yeah in a production shop setting you're gonna send this stuff with a production machine may be a big stir machine dual pad sander And you're going to get this stuff out the door because you're in a commercial setting so sanding to a one twenty or one fifty you're leaving fairly significant scratches so in in oak if you see a neatly along the grain those scratches won't be as objectionable if you're using wedding stained product. I'm holding this up for the folks that can't see this. This is a mohawk wiping stain product. That's pretty typical you. You'd see in a commercial shop and this is mostly a die product. That doesn't have a lot of pigment in it again. I did a a article which we coming out and find woodworking here soon about diane pigment but die think about the like a strong food coloring or t it's going to penetrate into the would as much as it can whatever the would will absorb and that's what you get. A pigment is nicely ground fine particles of nice dirt so the pigment if you had it in a wiping stained product or know a commercial setting if you're gonna put die on it's going to absorb what it's going to absorb and that heart and twenty grit sanded. Surface is going to absorb guy and the grooves of the santa scratches are going to absorb a little bit more die because you have the sides of the of the valley if you will open if you have a pigment in your in your stand mix if you have deep scratches like one twenty scratches the pigment is gonna lodge in those scratches so what we always say in. The shops are if you sat at one twenty and uses a pigment stain and you see and at a higher grit. The one twenty grit is going to appear darker because more pigment is gonna stay behind when you if you do a white walker if you leave it there because you there's more places for the pigment the lodge there's there's more surface area right. There's there's a valleys of the sand scratches the pigments going to go in there and it's going to stay so if you take the exact same piece of lumber and sanded at one twenty and seeing like to and stain it. It's going to look darker at one. Twenty okay is that to twenty. So that's one aspect of the of the the higher grit sitting as far as this business about polishing the. Would if you see end up high enough if you take a piece of maple cherry and you sanded up to four five six hundred you'll create a surface. That's almost like this piece of plexiglass. It's very very resistant to anything. Even the dies so it really is true. If you stand up too far you will. You will resist the action of the die penetrating and of course there's no place for the pigment to lodge so it's going to look very very light so to to well. I always say as a rule of thumb is that the middle ground here is to twenty okay and there's two reasons for the to twenty one for the color and once for the fish on the collar side if you're sanding at you know eighty and one twenty and one fifty whatever it is if you don't sand perfectly each grit progressively you're gonna leave one hundred grit scratch someplace so if santa to twenty neatly it even if you leave one hundred grade or one hundred fifty grit. Scratch somewhere in that pattern. It won't be noticeable because the to twenty will help smooth that over the other reason for the one on the finnish. Side is if you leave to twenty grid scratches most finishes at two applications. You know a couple of dry mills of finish most finishes will bridge to twenty scratches at one twenty. You gotta put a whole lot of finish on there to get it to bridge the the valleys and in the case of church furniture. It didn't matter you know if it's oak. You're not going for a full pour piano by finish so it's okay you can leave him at one. Twenty it doesn't make the finish. Grab any better I mean you need a little bit of tooth for like the modern era things and stuff even this rubio other than lacquers which melt into each other. You need a little bit of tooth and usually in between the coats is when we would send three twenty okay so the bare would prep would be bringing up through the grit. Says you need to Up to about two twenty as a rule of thumb in most woods an inbetween your coats of finish. If you're going to scuff in between that would be at say three twenty at the most if you go too much then it's true you're finish isn't gonna would here so Also if you do test boards now sanding at two twenty the you're you're you're staining will look differently if you finish at one eighty or one hundred question Particularly again if the if the caller i will call it. Disdain is sort of or ginger. If the color delivery system includes some pigment those pigment particles that powder dirt is gonna lodge in those poor in the pores of the wood and in your scratches and the other thing is if you're going to sand rough if you're gonna leave it at one twenty or one fifty you'd better stand really really neatly with the grain. Is any them cross grade. He's gonna show up like a scar. A so special pigtail swirls from iran. A morbid sander and again give you some some advice on that if you're standing up to two twenty with a random orbit i'm gonna really good ones. There's air powered ones in. There's there's an electric ones even really good to twenty random orbit. You're gonna get little swirly marks. You can handsome those out but you got back up to one eighty. Okay get those swirly marks at back up to one eighty on a hand block get the swirlies out and then hand block at two twenty so use your random orbit to get most of the work done in and try to minimize the swirly marks but if you get those little squirrels you've got to send him out yet. Backup one grip. I've i've recently started doing christian beck's method of. I think come one fifty or so. He pulls the pat off the ran more but does a hand pass them one. Eighty four but paul's pat off does a hand pass is is even. If you're trying to clear the swirlies out okay. The other thing that can help is a lot of these. Random orbits now the new ones. The lyrics are adjustable. Speed variable-speed ara. Are you supposed to change that speed. I've never touch that knob. Where do you run at high on. Fast or slow. Whatever it's i have no idea. I've never thought about that. Phnom well if you put it now all the way fast you're going to remove a lot more material and you're gonna leave more swirly marks if you put it all away. Slow was gonna go. Roy moore and you're not gonna get good standing action. So somewhere in the middle is better and slower is better so i would say sand at the slowest speed. That's effective for what you're trying to do. Okay you will minimize the squirrelly marks if you said at full number ten You're not only gonna not gonna have as much control of what you're seeing but you're gonna leave more swirlies

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us.

And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking.

The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance.

Cloud Gaming Could Impact Environment with Widespread Adoption
"Of our Studies have looked at the positive benefits gaming can have on human populations. But today we're looking at a potential negative according to researchers at Lancaster University who published their finances the 7th International Conference on ICT for sustainability cloud gaming if it were to become widespread could have a major impact on the environment wage limit changes in my opinion the biggest issue facing Humanity. It's important to consider how the things we do impact the environment around us generally gaming doesn't have a huge impact, but Horizon cloud gaming could have huge ramifications before we jump into the findings. I have to shout out in the cool Carpenter one of the best e Sports writers out there. She published a full article on this issue and polygon this morning. That's how I came across. No link the article below. It's something worth reading as most Gamers know cloud gaming is a big area of focus for the main gaming companies xcloud stadia PlayStation now or all big initiatives page right now cloud gaming has a negligible impact on the environment mainly because it accounts very very small percentage of all gaming being played the Lancaster University researchers modeled three possibilities by the year twenty-thirty the one where cloud gaming that's literally playing video games straight from the cloud not just downloading them from the cloud just to be clear stays a small part of overall gaming that model had little effect on the environment the second model assumes 30% of Gamers plaid primarily cloud-based streaming games that would increase the carbon emissions of gaming by about 30% and 5 or if ninety percent of people switched over to playing games on the cloud that would increase carbon emissions of gaming by a hundred and 12% Those models were also assuming Gamers continue to play in 7 a.m. And 20 and 1080p if 4K gaming took over that would have a massive effect on the environment that final example were ninety percent of gamers are suddenly playing video games on a cloud would require massive bounds in Internet infrastructure, and it's incredibly unlikely, but it's also something to be informed about and consider when debating what to play and what to subscribe to now the big savings page. This is also highlighted by Nicole and her article. This study assumes the cloud service are being run by fossil fuels not by Clean Energy if we can make a transition to clean energy.

"lancaster" Discussed on KCRW
"In Lancaster. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, and I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. Well, as President Trump predicted he is getting sued sixteen states, arguing that he can't redirect military and other spending to build a border wall without congressional approval. The president is trying this by declaring a national emergency at the border, but he's entering a legal battle here without clear support from the American people, a new NPR PBS NewsHour mayor's poll finds a majority of Americans disapprove of the president's emergency declaration six in ten Americans. Actually don't think there is any emergency. That said the president's political base is behind him overwhelmingly, let's turn to conservative writer Jonah Goldberg who senior editor at national review and frequently comes on our program. Welcome back Jonah beer. Well, it's always great to have you. So does President Trump care? The majority of Americans don't think there's an emergency. Belonging to deep into. Donald Trump's cranium may not be the greatest us. But I think doesn't matter. Let me rephrase matter to him that that that there are a lot of Americans are not with it. Clearly doesn't matter American. He's been underwater guys. Never broken fifty in the approval ratings in any polls. It hasn't stopped him from going with his gun and all sorts of things. And I think that on this. This is one of these things where he, you know, he basically is always thought that his base are the only voters who truly matter. You know, the ones he refers to as my people he is convinced and it's been reported that he thinks this is his no new taxes pledge and that he cannot go back on the wall and anything he does get the wall is self justifying and there's also just to be blunt and cynical about it. This was a smart political move in the sense that the headlines would have been Trump gets taken to the cleaners in the budget deal. He lost the government shutdown fight, and he came out worse. The other end with the budget deal and those headlines were completely erased because he changed the narrative. Well. Let let's talk through. I mean, whether or not he needs the base of the wall was a centerpiece of two thousand sixteen campaign. He won that election. But you could argue right that he might have hurt congressional Republicans when he focused on the wall ahead of the midterms of is there a path here where this is a winning argument, even though it only retained his base and most other Americans don't aren't with them here. I don't think so I've never thought. So I think it has been bizarre to me that the guy who ran as Eilon can fix it. And I'm gonna make deals, and I'm going to work with Democrats that he is he's the first president in modern memory who has governed as if he only cares about his base normally presidents at least pretend to care about being president for the whole country and normally presidents try to expand their coalition that got them elected once they get into office. He's never pursued that strategy. It's been a base strategy in office the entire time. I don't see how it helps him. Mm for reelection unless there's some third party candidate. But that is the gamble. They've made they think that if insurance the intensity it will work for him. And I think it's misguided. But that's it seems apparent that? That's either strategy or that Donald Trump doesn't know how to behave any other way. I want to highlight one other finding in our new poll eighty four percent of Republicans and ninety percent of Trump supporters think there is a national emergency at the border, Democrats and independence don't agree with that. I mean, I I know these are polarized time. Some sure you know, these are polarized times. But how can people's perceptions on an issue like this be that vastly different? Yeah. I I think you could you can find very similar findings things like climate change and all sorts of stuff. There's an enormous amount of motivated reasoning going on there and for a lot of voters there really isn't an emergency at the border. There was a political -mergency for Donald Trump and this solve that emergency. The the comparison. I think that makes the most sense to me is during the Iraq. War. There was a time. When only Republicans who are backing President Bush thought the war was going better than it. Really? Was they believe that it was gonna get better, and they gave Bush whatever approval ratings he could get and I think that's a very similar scenario to what we have today. I don't believe that every single Trump supporter thinks there's an actual crisis at the border. I'm not sure that every Trump opponent is really opposed to say fifty miles more fence. But this is polarized time and support for what Trump does is support for Trump, and it's also opposition to your enemies, and it's going to manifest itself across a wide array of policy issues because they're all wrapped up. I mean, Trump is in everybody's head space. You say support for Trump, and maybe not necessarily support for conservative values here. Right. I mean, if the president goes were with us he might have to pull money away from improving military housing to build the wall. He may have to take property rights private property rights along the border through 'em. Domain. I mean, supporting servicemembers protecting property rights. Those are some conservative causes that does that weigh on Republicans here at I think it does in private conversations. Look, this is why I felt like I've been taking crazy pills for the last couple years on trade. You have people who lost their livelihood because of the various tariffs in protectionist policies of the present put in and yet they supported the president for doing it. You can go down a list of things where people their their self interest. Their long-standing principles are violated by things that the Trump White House is doing and they still support Donald Trump because they support Donald Trump. It's it's we're in kind of love me love, my president kind of mode on the right these days, and it's it's very hard to coordinate with the past that we've all come to expect from conservatives. Jonah Goldberg is senior editor at national review. John always great to have you. Thanks so much to be here. Thank you. Democrats have been mostly unified against President Trump's border wall. But on more nuanced immigration issues. It hasn't always been simple. Some immigrant advocates called President Obama that reporter and chief for his policies and while Republicans have moved to the right on immigration. The Democrats base has moved left exposing a new rift in that party NPR's Asahara reports to understand how much the Democratic Party has shifted Unimak Gration check out this statistic. From the Pew Research Center in nineteen Ninety-four. Third of Democrats said immigrants strengthen our country today that number is over eighty percent. Bill Clinton is part of his overall law and order agenda sought to crack down on illegal immigration after years of neglect. This administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. This is his nineteen Ninety-six state of the union address. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring the legal immigrants and tonight. I announce I will sign an executive order to deny. Federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants. But around the year two thousand key constituencies within the Democratic Party, but Jan to change their tunein immigrants the ACP again to see immigration as a civil rights issue rather than as a jobs problem in the AFL CIO starting to see immigrant labor as a growing base of their membership rather than only a threat to American workers. But Labor's concerns lingered Frank Sherry, a longtime pro immigration activist points to two thousand seven when a majority of Democrats supported a bipartisan immigration Bill, but to progressives now mulling twenty twenty presidential run. Did not Sherrod Brown. He thought that this. You know, if we legalized and expanded the admission of immigrants who might affect American workers in a way that his states workers would suffer. Bernie Sanders also voted against it staff for both Brown and Sanders. See the senators in two thousand seven had specific concerns about expanding a guest worker program that could lower wages. Fast forward to two thousand thirteen when the Senate voted on another comprehensive immigration Bill. Labor groups supported it. And not a single democrat voted against it. The way democratic presidential candidates discuss immigration today is focused more on immigrants rights and less on American jobs and border security. Here's New York Senator Kirsten gillibrand on CNN explaining her immigration transformation. When she was in the house. She wanted to expand deportations now she wants to abolish ice. I realize that things I had said were wrong. I was not caring about others. I was not fighting for other people's kids the same way, it was fighting for my own, and I was wrong to feel that way. There's another reason Democrats have changed. If you ask Frank, Sherry, he points to American public opinion, quite frankly, the driving force was immigrants who were well represented in the big cities of LA in New York and Houston in Chicago and Miami, we're moving. To all parts of the country. And that's changed the demographics of the Democratic Party in the mid nineties about a quarter of Democrats were not white nowadays. Forty-three percent are people of color. Most of that growth has been among Asians and Latinos, which are also the largest immigrant groups Cecilia Munoz handled immigration policy and the Obama administration. And she says there's one other powerful factor influencing the party immigration activists. You have political figures adopting, the activists agenda and the activists language. She says that means Democrats focusing on the aspects of immigration where activists are loudest, for example, immigration enforcement, but other important issues like reforming the legal immigration process. Don't get as much attention. Ammonia also says the intensity around the immigration debate has grown since President Trump took office with families being separated at the border and the president insisting on a wall. And she says it's become more challenging for her party to. Engage in a conversation about immigration enforcement. It's pretty easy to talk about things that we shouldn't do. But there is not a lot of space to talk about what we should do to make this process functional to make it make sense. It's come very close to being a forbidden topic. And that I think is a very dangerous thing. Magno says it's dangerous because voters want solutions the Democrats can't just be the people who are not the Trump administration. They need to offer a vision of what immigration in America ought to look like a small holid- NPR news..
