"D.C.. We'll get more of the national news where they can take her. Beginning with a correction, Paul, New York, Democrat Sean Patrick maloney, the head of House Democrats campaign arm has conceded defeat in his race against Republican Michael Lawler to represent the 17th congressional district in New York's Hudson valley with 95% of votes counted, Lawler leads by 1.2%. Maloney represented New York's 18th district for a decade before the maps were redrawn. As for the overall electoral picture this morning after the midterms, Brown university political science chair Wendy schiller says, worries about election integrity or voter fraud, didn't seem to tip the scales last night. Given the inflation numbers and the perception that the economy is bad or that it will get bad, you would have expected that we're going to do better and in some cases it looks like either the individual candidate or the reputation for what the Republicans would do once they captured Congress got in their way last night. More normal. Electoral dynamics says Brown university's Wendy schiller. Another race that could take days to decide well outside Capitol Hill is the Los Angeles mayor's contest with about 43% of votes counted there, Republican real estate billionaire Rick Caruso has 51.3%. The democratic congresswoman Karen Bass is 48.8%, but mail in ballots still need counting. A federal judge in Washington has dismissed lieutenant colonel Alexander vindman's lawsuit against Donald Trump Jr. and former president Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the former National Security Council official accused them both of conspiring to have him fired for testifying in former president Trump's first impeachment, judge said there was no basis for vindman's claims that lay leaked information insinuating he had divided loyalties as a Ukrainian American.

The Midterm States in Play With Kevin McCullough
"States are in play, Kevin? What do you think about well, there's a couple of big issues that two states could end up helping that some people aren't noticing. And they are the congressional races from New York and from California. New York by itself, if it wins all the toss up races statewide for congressional seats, the Mike Lawler race against mister maloney, who is the head of the democratic congressional committee. If that race goes Lawler's way and you pick up two or three other seats across the they themselves, New York in its own delegation could swing the entire House of Representatives back to the Republicans. That's how significant these are. You've got a number of races in New York that are very close that Republicans are surging in. You've got a number of races in California. They're so far down on the ticket in these typically big blue states. People don't think about them making that big of a difference, but they really will.
Meet Michael Lawler, a Candidate for U.S. Representative
"Tell us about you and your district Thanks Mark So I'm currently in the state assembly I am running in New York 17 against Sean Patrick maloney The 17th district includes all of Rocklin northern Westchester all of putnam and duchess counties It's the immediate suburbs of New York City Joe Biden won the district by ten points in 2020 But this is a district where 50% of households have a police officer a firefighter a first responder or a veteran living in it It is very much a blue collar working class district and voters are focused on two issues inflation and crime And on both issues Sean Patrick maloney owns the mess that we're in He has voted 100% of the time lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden driving inflation to a 41 year record high And he said that cashless bail was his top priority when he ran for attorney general in 2018 And since cashless bail took effect crime is up 36% in New York City and 40% of those released on non monetary bail for felony offenses have been rearrested So folks want to support us in our effort to take out the chair of the DCC and Nancy Pelosi's reign as speaker They can go to fire maloney dot com that's fire maloney dot com to help us really make history I mean the chair of the DCCC has not been defeated in over 40 years and this we will certainly be the face of the red wave on November 8th in doing that And I think voters mark in New York This is the first time in our nation's history that Democrats control everything in Washington Albany and New York City all at once And they've created a mess And I think voters all across New York are poised to not only elect me in the 17th district but elect Lee zeldin as our next governor
Michael Lawler: Sean Maloney Is Scrambling to Be Saved
"Well speaking of that how is the race going And how do you know how it's going Well our latest polling has me up 6 we have consistently been ahead We were up two in July four and September and 6 just a few weeks ago And we've seen obviously a major influx of support from CLS and the NRCC over $9 million in outside money And the Democrats are scrambling I mean he's brought in Bill Clinton Hillary Clinton Jill Biden Joe Biden has made a phone call into the district And they're scrambling to try and save him But it's not going to work By the way Mark this is a district where both Bill and Hillary live and George Soros so it'll be something on November 9th when they wake up and have a Republican Congress Are you telling me those three don't live in the city that they get so much support from They live out in the suburban area They do They live in Westchester county
Michael Lawler: Most Voters Don't Know Sean Maloney
"If he's spending all this time trying to elect other Democrats how is he spending enough time in his district You know it doesn't just happen on election day They have to spend years working on that Well that's been his problem He's been gallivanting across the globe He went to Paris Geneva and London only a few weeks ago to raise money for Nancy Pelosi in the DCC And he has really not spent too much time in this district And on top of that with redistricting having taken effect 75% of this district is new to him So most voters don't know him And I'm coming out of rockland county which is 42% of the district and born and raised there I've lived there my whole life my family has been there over a hundred years Nobody knows him over here And so this is not your normal situation where incumbent has a big advantage And I think as he finally woke up to the fact that he has a real race just two weeks ago he has now been siphoning off millions of dollars from other democratic congressional electeds and candidates across the country to try and save himself but it's frankly too little too late

"And I think that's where that's where the conversation needs to go. As opposed to what Sean Patrick maloney and the Democrats are saying, which is basically no restriction up to the day birth, everything's fine. One of the other issues that's obviously top of the agenda here in this election and we've talked about inflation cost of living, public safety, abortion, also this issue often broadly referred to as sort of threats to democracy, the question of former president Trump trying to overthrow the results of the election, many Republicans supporting his efforts to do that. Trump continuing to lie about what happened in the election and a variety of other things. A would you have would you be in favor of the electoral count act? What do Republicans need to do here to sort of come back into the sort of mainstream of what Americans want, which is elections with integrity, winners, and losers both accepting the results, you know, people sort of supporting the peaceful transfer of power, do you support that Bill and how do you sort of get Republicans who seemingly like yourself, correct me if I'm wrong, don't want to be going down these paths of sort of inciting an insurrection on the capitol when the vote is being certified and risking the vice president's life and things that we saw on January 6th, 2021. Where do you stand on these issues and that Bill? So it's funny. Show them maloney said that mainstream Republicans believe that January 6th was wrong and that Joe Biden won the election. And I've said from the very beginning that Joe Biden won the election and January 6th was wrong. I was the first person out with the statement on January 6th in the state legislature, condemning it. And so I guess that makes me a mainstream Republican in Sean Malone. He's worked. But the reality here is this. Our country is rooted in the peaceful transfer of power. It's what has separated us from other nations when it comes to our elections. You look at, you know, look at Russia. There's no peaceful transfers of power there. And so I think that is fundamental to our democracy. And I believe very strongly in that. I believe in accepting the results of the election. Whether it goes your way or not, I've always tried to live by a quote in politics. Humble and victory gracious in defeat. And you need to be gracious if you lose. And I certainly was disappointed by what happened. After the 2020 election, because I think it was destructive to our democracy. But I think the objective of every elected official needs to be to ensure that our elections are fair. That they are safeguarded. And that everyone who is legally eligible to vote is able to vote. And so that, for me, is the foundation of what I believe is critically important. And that all of us, as elected officials have an obligation to ensure that we're in our last couple minutes here with Mike Lawler, the Republican nominee for Congress in New York's new 17th congressional district. He's facing Democrat Sean Patrick maloney, the congressman who represents the current 18th district and I won't go into all the details of the redistricting process now, but they are the Republican and democratic nominees in the new 17th congressional district in the lower Hudson valley, just a couple more minutes with assembly member Mike Lawler here who's hoping to move to Congress in the new year after this year's elections.
"lawler" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"To max politics. This is Ben max from Gotham gazette, a publication of citizen union foundation. Thanks very much for tuning in here for this episode of the show. We're speaking on October 11th, 2022, four weeks from election day. We are in the home stretch here. November 8th is fast approaching, preceded by absentee balloting, which is already beginning and early voting, of course, coming up just before election day. New York is one of the key battleground states for control of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Democrats currently hold a very narrow majority, but are expected to lose it this year following a longtime trend of a president's party losing many seats in their midterm election cycle. Democrats believe they have a shot to maintain the majority in part because of a variety of recent moves by president Joe Biden and the Democrat controlled Congress, as well as the Supreme Court decision to overturn roe V wade national abortion protections. And ongoing Republican threats and attacks on the democratic process. Republicans are hopeful about flipping many seats across the country, including several in New York and thus the chamber overall, and also trying to take control of the U.S. Senate through this year's elections. The GOP is banking not only on that longtime trend I mentioned, but also on American dissatisfaction with Democrats who are in power, inflation, crime, and a variety of other issues. New York will now have 26 seats in the house all reconfigured due to the population trends of the 2020 census and the very messy redistricting process, the details of which I won't go into now. And there are a number of closely watched general election contests between Democrats and Republicans in the state almost all of them outside very blue New York City. But they have great consequences for the 5 boroughs for the rest of the state and for the country. One of those races to watch here is for the new 17th congressional district of New York in the Hudson valley, where my guest today is the Republican nominee. Mike Lawler an assembly member is with me today. He is facing congressman Sean Patrick maloney, who represents the current 18th congressional district, but after that redistricting process is running in the new 17th congressional district, which includes a chunk of his current district, including his home. This race is in a district that Joe Biden won by ten points over Donald Trump in 2020, but it's seen by some as just a lean blue district or a likely blue district and by some as a toss up. Adding intrigue about this race is the fact that representative Sean Patrick maloney is the chair of the democratic congressional campaign committee the DCCC, which runs the Democrats house campaign efforts. The new 17 congressional district is, as I said, in New York's lower Hudson valley, and it's spans the Hudson to the east and the west. It includes parts or all of Westchester rockland putnam and duchess counties. It borders both New Jersey and Connecticut, and it has a very interesting race here this year. So let's bring on the Republican nominee in the 17th congressional district assembly member Mike Lawler assembly member thanks for joining me. How are you? I'm doing well, Ben. Thanks for having me on. Look forward to a lively discussion about the race. You know, this is one where I think a lot of Washington prognosticators aren't sure yet whether or not they feel this is a real race, but I can tell you on the ground having lived here my whole life.
"lawler" Discussed on American Scandal
"Several weeks later, Michael Lawler sits down with an official who represents the union for chemists. Lawler himself a senior chemist at anti ducon lab, has been looking forward to this meeting for days. He's continued sneaking into Khan's lab station and taking note of her chemical supply and the glass slides in her discard bin. At this point, the evidence is clear. There's no chance that dukan is running all the tests she claims to be running, which is exactly why Lawler called this meeting. He does not have faith that managers at the Hinton lab will do anything to stop ducon. So he's going to try and convince a union official to look into the matter himself. And hopefully, take some kind of meaningful action. As the meeting begins, the union official adjusts his time and shoots Lawler a look of curiosity. Mister longer, thank you for contacting me. It's always good to meet with one of our top chemists, but I'm not exactly sure what we're doing here. Can you fill me in? Yeah, of course. And thank you for meeting me. I know this doesn't happen every day. But I felt the need to mention my concerns about someone at my lab. Her name is Annie dukan in a and I have reason to believe she's committing fraud, fraud. You're talking about someone who's responsible for testing drugs. Yeah. Andy dukan is actually something she's a star at hinted. She has the highest testing numbers of any of the chemists by far. But I've gathered some strong evidence proving she's not actually running the tests. Oh, I see. But mister Lawler, that's a big accusation. Are you sure? Are you spending your entire day watching her work? No, no, I can't afford to do that. I've got my own tests run. So what is the proof? Well, like I said, her testing numbers are far, far above anyone else's. But if you look at her supplies, things don't add up. Her chemical bottles sit unused, her discard bin is empty, which you think is proof that she's not actually running tests. That's exactly the conclusion I came to. The official pauses, fighting his lip..

"Everyone talks about a long lay-off and and and i gotta say it's very difficult to come back from a hard layoff but You know if there's anyone who could do it it's it's nick. D is absolutely to that point. I gotta say. I love this matchup. The first u. of c. card i ever attended and two thousand four was ufc. Forty-seven when nick knocked out. Robbie lawler i was actually at that. That was the first year of c. I was in attendance. And i'll never forget that because there was so much hype around robbie at that time he was kinda young gone. Big knockout power. Everyone was kind of impressed by what he had done early. So early in his career came from that team and then nick went out there and face planning them. I don't know a better way to say it. It's not an insult to robbie man he just he. He hit him hard and knocked him. Your face i on the campus. I gotta be honest. Look at the time. It was kind of shocking. Now here we are literally seventeen years later. They're both in different places in their careers but this is still a really fun fight because robbie still brings a. We know he's still got knocked out. Power and weirdly. I don't think the time off is gonna affect. Nick like he's the guy who's always training. He's not in the gym training. Mma he's training triathletes. He's biking's always shape so it's teleki had to get in shape to start a fight.

Oh absolutely i mean this is seventeen years and they make you dislike. You said this is a rematch. Would be the wanting to see for a long time. We thought this might happen in strikeforce. This might happen somewhere else and and now here. We are full circle..

Thank you for paulie i. I'm a big fan I really am. I had him on my podcast When he was still japan mostly russ came to nine nine. So i got the call one of his big matches in the biggest event. That new japan has I had chance to hire and i. We laughed about this. I passed on him and he said it was the best thing to happen to him because he wasn't ready for wwe. I didn't think it was already either. So we do hiring But he was very green I do believe today. He's as good workers. W has i don't think they have any. I don't know he. He's the best but i can tell you he's as good as anybody. I've seen in a long time so i. I can't imagine him not getting a tenure with a championship. I think it's inevitable when it happens. I don't have any idea But he's a he's really really special. So and i and i don't you know smart. That universal title is concerned. And how it's gonna evolve. And all that. I really am not smart enough to tell you today. That's going to do. I got to see it in. I gotta see develop. And that's why. I said all along. I think that the The brand separation is we better judged more effectively with more evidence. and not. just you know a personal preference over a show by wrestlemainia thirty three. It can't be today even example. I can twitter follower. I went on twitter at. Jr sb viki. Okay i had a guy tweet me money. Excuse me on tuesday night about twenty minutes into the show allies and he wanted to know what how i how i would judge or rank the announce team in twenty minutes work. So here's what that tells me. That person has no patience. That person doesn't know that you can't make that decision or make a viable intelligent opinion in twenty minutes. It's not fair to those three guys. It's not fair to anybody so I think that's kind of where we are so everybody wants everything now way. It's all now quick. Quick quick. And i think this is something that we can't have. Now we have to wait until see how evolves before we all make a intelligent. You can make a decision but you gotta make gonna make a decision When you have more information and and the more you have the decision will be. What did you think when you heard that jerry lawler was no longer going to be a color commentator on either raw or smackdown wasn't surprised at all based on the fact that the brands the separation was going to create new and they wanted to fresh approach. It's kind of like the Moving the raw announce team back to the near the pyro Back to the stage area change. it was just. It'd be different. You know experienced that once upon a time wasn't crazy about it i i just. I fed off the audience there surrounding me. And i think a lot of broadcasters. Do it just gives you a little boost. They help they're drilling healthiest infectious and the thing about being so far away. You're you're not surrounded by the audience to your back. Your back is this wall stage. And you're you're back. You're not surrounded by the fans so you lose a little bit that energy and of course. Then you're you're the the running gag is that you're you know you feel like you're a something for jr's barbecue you know on that. He'll that dan pyro and the noise is hideous. You cannot allow yourself to have your head. Hits it off in the pyro. Goes off because we'll crush your ears your drums as bad bet but that kind of thing. I just You know i. I think that we gotta get these guys time and i. Hey i think. I've always been a two man. I like to maintain but the companies the company says they want three. Then make three work in it and all this that it's not easy. The best three men team i ever worked with. Was this lawler in the for from from my point of view but i thought when they were going to do this re shuffle the deck jerry And nobody's gonna wanna say this. But jerry sixty six years old and they want they want to start new. You starting to the sixty six year old guy had any business. I mean think about you know it. It a prime role. Jerry's gotta roll on tv and adventure. Say he's making exactly the same money he made for doing raw.

Structurally we have to Economy wherever economy. That's keep for the upper half Leaving even when it's strong wasn't twenty nineteen is leaving for your shoe mission also behind a lot of those. Oh to working adult. In the united way doing this alison analysis which is just a fancy acronym that they're using for certain calculating the proportion of households in missionaries struggling to pay the bills pay for based subsidies in in two thousand nineteen was almost four in ten. Now with only four comey's study under thirty percents so sergei replaced in the state. So our sense is is a strategy michigan. It's been pursuing for the last twenty or thirty years. If you define economic success sir also do while like now the dead strategy worth in what we should be using this neutral money for is to make the move away from sort of the old balance is that haven't were tuned. Tuning pouncing machine that specifically designed to achieve rising income for all the economy is grows benefits every and we understand that you make the pivot. Some of the driven put in place is all it'll be funded temporarily but our since is as let's get going at net stuff when the federal money runs out our hope is that the legislature in the governor will agree that it's important enough to continuing to fund long-term one of the pivots. The governor is already made is to invest large sums of money in continuing education through the community college system primarily for the skilled trades but for things as well like nursing and other medical Medical professions that could be very lucrative and don't require a four year degree a good move so generally answered yes to be. I think they're really important. The first is higher it in general but the community colleges later have really low completion rates. The cost of tuition is mad. The major reason trillo completion merits so unless you substantially improve the completion rates. The money basically is not going to end up doing what it's intended to do so you have to fix the completion problem along with the free tuition to have a program that's really effective in moving people up Into better paying jobs. That don't require for you. Wanna do the second challenge. Which i think in terms of the big pictures. Probably more severe seventy percent of michigan goldstone before you agree. There's only about seventeen or son of michigan jobson. Twenty nineteen paid enough to support a household of three at the middle class. Let that don't require for your degree. So the funnel very narrow in this notion that we keep telling ourselves that there's a boatload of I'd paying supposedly skilled trades. Or what's the term were using ounce professional trade since they wanna include healthcare on the idea along with construction Things like installation maintenance repair candidate. Jobs is just not accurate. We really need a strategy that helps all low paid workers nine just a small number of low page. Paid workers for boom is the step of job. So that's the caveats in general providing training to.

"Lawler for chief financial officer told industry analyst after first quarter earnings recently that the company had about 22,000 vehicles parked and awaiting semiconductor parts at the end of March. They can't be sold. Until those parts of received more on the delays from Phoebe Wall Howard Automotive reporter at the Detroit Free Press, who says the numbers continue to grow, Phoebe explained. We're talking. The hardest hit in the world is Ford Motor Company. The hardest hit in North America is General Motors, but this is Toyota Volkswagen, BMW Honda. Everybody. What's getting a lot of attention is that thousands and thousands of cars are piling up in major lots all over North America and other locations. Ford Motor Company has its best selling at series. Thousands of trucks as far as you can see in Kentucky, not far from Churchill down, as well as Kansas City parked at worlds of fun and all over metro Detroit. But these are new trucks, new SUVs, and they have to build them Park thumb and hold them until these semiconductor parts can come in and be inserted and then sent to the dealers. Ford seems to be It's so especially hard is that because of the popularity of the F 1 50. It looks like that situation they produce. So many, you know, one rolls off the line every in less than a minute. And so the sheer volume of sales, that's what that's what we're saying, So it's something that's I guess all pretty alarming here, too, is that somebody in your story was quoted to saying that Chip issue is going to be a problem potentially for years for the auto industry. It's terrifying. The head of Intel actually did a preview interview with Bloomberg for 60 minutes and he said, it looks like this thing could drag on for for a couple of years, and it's because it takes so long to create these factories and Ah Major factory and Tokyo. Just had a big fire in March of this year. That was a major provider for the global auto industry. So you've got a fire situation. You've got a shortage because of Cove it and then you just have massive supply disruption and the idea that this could drag on what that means is that prices of used cars are going up. That prices of new cars are going up that rental cars. What we found is that rental car companies are desperately trying to find vehicles to purchase and they said in Florida it's costing $100 a day in Puerto Rico $600 a day and this is to rent a car person enterprise. So the impact with the semi conductor saying is is we're going to see it for quite some time. Speak with Phoebe Wall Howard Automotive reporter at the Detroit Free Press. Their stories called thousands of big new pickups aren't going to customers. Here's why. And if I understand that the basics of this the semi conductor shortage problem is tied to the pandemic and that we all shifted to work from home. So we all needed new laptops and computers and tablets that took away all the supply. And it's difficult for the semiconductor makers to suddenly pivot back. And wrap them up for making cars and trucks. Again. It zah complicated recipe. It's both of demand driven problem and also some of the factory's being shut down because of Cove. It So as everything shut down for that period. It's a complicated mix of that. Yes, we're competing autos are competing with your smartphones. Also, airplane parts pretty much anything that has smart components safety, driving any sort of technology. It's these parts, and we're all competing against one another. The one company that doesn't seem hard hit is Hyundai. And but everybody else this is this is really hitting the bottom line. But again, what's so striking is while all these pickups are piling up, we know that when dealerships received deliveries, they're sold and people are waiting. People unload these vehicles. I mean that there is such a hunger to get these new vehicles. And so the industry is watching this very closely again. The sale prices are going up. So what's amazing is even though Ford Motor Company has been able to sell they've sold fewer vehicles in first quarter Their process were up because people are paying more per vehicle. Thanks.

I would say something then. All these boys on the indy circuit. They came at me but they wouldn't come to me and person they will come to me on the internet new jack. You ain't shit. I was like man. These motherfuckers fuckers are really mad about me talking about this motherfucker. Correct me if i'm wrong. But lawler dig in trouble rather than sex with a fourteen year old girl and he bought his way out of that now. If i said something that isn't right. I'll say i am. I'll take it. But what i said was fucking right. So people got to say if he was telling the truth in what was a mad at lawler. I thought it was funny to do. It is stirred up his shit. But i could care less. It ain't like i don't like him. I know him. But i believe he's a racist little. Fuck i did it. Because i thought it was funny. I didn't say it. Because oh i hate jerry lawler.

That's how he came off now. You know what they say. People can change and look. I don't know. I don't know i can only tell you how uncomfortable i kind of felt Especially when i was trying to put on a smile and and all that other shit you know so you think about some of the racist comments that jerry lawler has made over the years especially all commentating you think about the fact that he had that one case where he was indicted on sodomizing and raping a fifteen year old girl but it was later. That girl retracted her statement. Because there was a budget. inconclusive Evidence apparently there were elements over story at weren't quite matching up however however however the two parties had settled out of court and normally when you do some type of a settlement you know usually there's there's there's something matters enough substantial evidence that you understand what i'm saying so then of course jerry lawler being abusive to his partners.

Elizabeth Wetmore: Valentine
"Today. I'm very pleased and excited. My favorite thing on bookworm is when I'm talking to a first novelist. And it someone whose work I have not previously known my guest on the show today is a booth wet more Beth wet more. Her book is called Valentine. It's published by Harper and it's novel. Beth. Wet more is fifty three years old and this is her first. Book, she's published many short stories in many of the best literary journals, the Kenyon, Review Colorado Review but this is her first time in hardcover. Tell me Beth what feel nights is finally see the book in hardcover. Well. It's all been a little unreal honestly. I worked on the book for a long time and I was ready to have the editor sort of wrestle out of my hands. Honestly I think if if she hadn't wrestled it out of my hands, I'd probably still be tinkering with it to tell you the truth and even now I occasionally spot a sentence or a paragraph that I think, Oh, I'd like to have a do over on that. But on the whole, it's been wonderful and surprising to me I think I. Expected The book to come out very quietly and and so it's been. Marvelous to see how many people have reacted to it in such a positive way and how meaningful it's been to some people. Yes the book has made its debut as number two when it came out on the New York Times bestseller list and it's set where Beth was born in West Texas in Odessa. Now, if you're me, you think Odessa that's near where my family come from in Russia this is Odessa in. West Texas how does it get its name? Well it depends on who you ask You know the they're part of Texas was settled pretty late in the early eighteen eighty s and depending on on what piece of local you believe it was it was named Odessa in part because of the sort of grasslands that that people said resembled the Odessa in Ukraine. And and and that's really been the most sort of certain story I've heard. No was Texas. is known for its. Economy. I'm sure most of my listeners will know this but what is an oil patch? Well. Odessa is in the Permian Basin which is about eighty, six, thousand square miles inside. So and and of course, West Texas and. is is even more vast right than the Permian basin and it's an oil and natural gas rich region of the country I read recently actually that actually until the until the pandemic, it was on pace to outpace Saudi Arabia for the biggest production in world in the next five years That's slow down and been derailed a little bit by the pandemic of course but it's so an oil patches you know a a part of the world where that is the single economy oil and natural gas. It's not a particularly pretty place in the world at least not by most people's standards I think it's beautiful. There's no other way to make a living out there other than working oil and natural gas and Odessa where I grew up on differs slightly from it sort of sister city, of Midland, which is about twenty three miles away in the sense that Odessa's a very working class town most of the people who live and work in Odessa do the. Blue collar work of the oil patch. So they work is the roughnecks and pipe lawler's and fitters and water haulers and That's still even today a pretty male dominated industry women in that part of the world tend to work in support roles as bartenders and waitresses preschool teachers, teachers, that sort of thing So that's where I grew up.
Early stage human trial data shows Oxford COVID-19 vaccine provides antibodies and killer T cells
"Us some good news on the vaccine front in early stage trials vaccine candidate from Oxford University in AstraZeneca House, no serious side effects and produced an immune response of both antibodies in T cell and participants. The U. S. Has also paid $1.2 billion to secure at least 300 million doses when it's finally available. For more on this vaccine development will speak to Dave Lawler, world editor at Axios. This was the first vaccine along with one in China to move into Phase three, which is the last phase of trials before a potential approval. So Madonna's also we've seen good preliminary results from them. Two. I would say that these three year kind of the front runners that the Oxford won the maternal one and then one that's being produced in China, But Oxford is just a little bit ahead of But during a one in where it is in the process at the moment, Basically, the results that were published today said that there were only minor side effects. Things like soreness, headaches, Some people felt Feverish, perhaps, but no major concerns in terms of side effects, and it did produce an immune response in everybody who got two shots of the vaccine. There's two rounds. Of immunization with this vaccine, so promising early results. Now we have to see the results from Face three, which is much broader testing, and it's happening now. And how does this vaccine work? The immune response that it's producing is antibodies and then also t cells as well, right? Right, So this works on two fronts. I was actually just speaking with an epidemiologist who was very impressed by the level of immunity that was generated by this vaccine. That's one of the good indications here is that it's possible to produce a vaccine that does have a strong Immune response. The what we don't know is is this actually going to prevent everybody who gets it from getting Corona virus? This could be They get the virus and then they have an immune response, and in the meantime, they might be able to spread it or won't be entirely foolproof. We won't know that until there's a longer term testing, and like I said, Phase three trials are happening now, so we should get clearer result. So we know that you know, If you get two shots of this vaccine, you will produce antibodies. You will have a level of immunity. But we don't know whether it's going to be 100% effective and we don't know whether you could still get the virus and then fight it off more quickly than you otherwise would have. That's the big question. Last week, British researchers reported that People that get infected with the virus may see these antibodies start fading pretty quickly, maybe within a few months. So that raises that big question of long term protection. The immunity there. One of the big questions to watch out for after this is who gets all of the vaccine's first I'm obviously the whole world wants this. The U. S government does have a steak and a lot of different vaccine candidates, including this one by Oxford and AstraZeneca. They paid $1.2 billion to secure at least 300 million doses, but That's the big question. And also the point you raised previously that we don't know how long immunity will ask also factors into the equation here, right? Because already you need two shots from this particular back scene. So nearly every American a really high level of Americans and people around the world would need to shop that is Just an astronomical amount of doses to be able to produce and deliver. Then you add in the fact that we don't know how long immunity will last. So if this is a six month thing I'm here. We're gonna need to then have enough production for everybody to get another round of vaccinations. This is going to be a logistical Nightmare. And, Yeah, we do have the point now where Richard governments are pre ordering doses of the vaccine, right? The promising one even some that earlier in the process, you know, governments are buying up doses of them in case they work. That's a good thing because it allows them. It gives them resource is to fund this production. But it's a bad thing, because if you are a middle income country, or you know a developing country Are you going to be last in line to get this vaccine? And is there going to be enough? You know, even in the first year or so of production for you to get the vaccine, there are people working on this question. This is something that's some governments have spoken out on there, maybe systems in place By the time these vaccines there are rolling off the line and ready to go. But it's a huge question Mark and I think that's just one of the reasons why we have good news today, But there's a lot more hurdles to jump over. Exactly. AstraZeneca has committed to me. Two billion doses, and they say maybe one billion of those could be available by the end of the year. And that's the thing that I guess. They said that it could be cleared for emergency used as early as October, possibly but still going to take a little time to roll it all out. So that would be for really high risk people. It would almost be another phase of testing right. They would roll it out wider to people who are at particular risk. Maybe frontline workers and things would get it early. But it just won't be ready on a massive scale until at some point next year. Probably early next year is the timeline that Anthony thought she has put out there. So we're hoping that that The case. But we won't know exactly because you know, as as we've talked about this face three is just getting underway. I mean, it's a scientific marvel that we have three Vaccines now heading into phase three trials only seven months after this outbreak was discovered, so it's by far the fastest that anything like this has ever moved.

Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,
Travel restrictions now in effect for St. Maarten
"No sint Martin is a country of the Dutch Caribbean set on an island of roughly ninety square kilometers. That's home to a population eighty thousand people, however half the population on this small mass do not belong to Saint Martin but the. Confusingly named French overseas collectivity of Saint Martin. The two territories have been divided by a land border through the center of the island since the mid seventeenth century and operate with different languages, currencies and governments for Outposts News Miracles Luhan Amirah speaks to Gordon Snow, the editor of Saint Martin's newspaper The daily Herald about how he's been covering travel restrictions and border controls on the island during the pandemic, so whereas Sink Malta, and what distinguishes it from the other islands that surround in the caravan. If you look at the Ricoh on the map, whereabouts to the right for Regal, one of the little thoughts just right next to the British. Virgin Islands and we're in Ireland. Stats distinguishes itself by the fact that it's by national main stats. Half of the island is a leaky French therre. Dory of France so old trench laws are applicable there now you can pay with the euro also saves a dollar because we are dollar denominated. s most being. Old Dependence on US and Canadian Doris so lawler is. It's very important in guaranteeing economy, the second part of smart is Dutch. It is Don Imus country within the kingdom that means that they have their own governments We have our own BARNUM's CETERA. Run our own affairs, except for Defense Foreign Affairs. That's be taken garrels hollins. That's why for example she. Martin is a member of the Gary. We aspire to, but it's difficult because not flee independence, the beauty of this by national age of the islands. That's a you have a bit of southern France on the north side of the islands, a bit of a through northern Garabedian english-speaking are being country on the other side of the island. So you have a bit of both and tell me go to you talk about terrorism being a major part of your economy there, so tell me how you'll covering the news over the pandemic at the moment house affected the island in terms of its health, and in terms of its economy as well. Russell sports condemning was yeah, like like everywhere else abyss hit us very hard. Whereas other countries could say they have different industries. We only have one instrument stores, and so everybody's dependent on Dexter Dr Arrests Drums Adele's in my extension order companies like ourselves for examples media. We were forced to depend on the so it's We don't do well either. So. Yeah, we are really. Doors. A comeback and yes, she no know is probably going to be a big issue worldwide. With people afraid to travel by plane a by cruise boats. We have a lot of cruise liners. This is our islands a yearly basis. So yeah, that's that's affecting us. As far as the disease, itself is concerned pretty much over free. Now we've had some. Dole about seventy gazes, which have for our swollen instances is quite a lot. But we are pretty much. Go with Renault's are gonNA actually graduate opening up again rare in the third phase of reopening, and now one or face go, but it's pretty much. Everything is back to normal. As, far as that's concerned, so everybody's breathing, a sigh of relief that you can go out again that freely. What does your front page looked like at the moment was some headlines that are standing out and up. What will imagery? Are you running with well? Yeah, we have focused on reopening. Starting to move again today, for example, the borders between the French and Dutch side with four Boorda points. They were close or allows two months because of the French side of course have their own go vitz protocols. That's the. The national protocols. And, it was deemed a safer for everybody to build temporary. Grosso's borders those are open up against us today, so that's for example is. Is something that will be focusing on though. What's the immigration pattern light between the two sides of the island? Because obviously, there's a there's a border through the middle of it. There are two separate countries on this very small islands. So how does movement between those two places happened during the pandemic? One, thing you have to understand when you live. Like ours somebody may live on the French side, but were on the site vice versa, so he needed people to be able to continue to work. Be Able to go to work. Of course. There were options for people to work from. But, if you do the type of work that allow you stay home and work via remote. You, we'll have to go and be able to job now that some sectors you had to have. Both Dutch Francesa side governments travel. And Yeah, a you need special boss. Some people had special like like myself. MEDIA PERSON STARTING TO GET A. Disaster Media Bosso. Normal time time. If you're normal times, there is no border. So he can freely move across the border. We only have a border control. Join Border Control at the. Airports, but we don't have joint border controls at the order points between the two sides of the. That's the beauty of this.

High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas
"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country. God probably Craggy Teton Mountains of North West Wyoming steep and deep Jackson hole is as a magnet for extreme skiers right. They're buddies goading them on on Matt Beauregard. And Rick lawler drop a fifteen foot cliff in this glade. Area called the tower three shits as just a melody honestly. You were just rep around rounded bounce. Skiing inbounds inside. The patrolled boundaries of the ski resort generally thought to be safer when it comes to avalanches. That's because all season skiers. I've been packing this snow down and stabilising it. But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center. She recorded wind speeds up to a hundred miles an hour on Ridge tops that further destabilize the already volatile snowpack in the Wasatch satch mountains. And then you put a big wrong heavy load or a wind load on top of that it just kind of upside down. It's like a pyramid when you take out the Baser Django when you remove one of the pieces says there were no fatalities reported in Utah. But last month skiers were buried and killed in avalanches within patrolled terrain at resorts in California and Idaho. Oh all of this is putting the round. The clock work. People tasked with keeping these mountains safe under the microscope Jackson Hole. Ski Patrol Director Drew Neilan stepping into his bindings above. You can't see it in the fog now. But there's a big cirque above us here and that's Casper Bowl. All and all that terrain is avalanche terrain every morning at dawn before the tram and the Gondolas Starts Spinning Army of Nielsen's patrol or detonating explosives lives to intentionally trigger slides. Now so skiers don't later and some of these can even be detonated remotely thanks to new robot like trolleys that reach even more dangerous surest remote places. Obviously we worry about avalanches coming down into the heavily congested areas. So that's one of our biggest concerns to get that work done early. Another big concern is simply that more. People are venturing out further into areas. They normally wouldn't have thanks to improved equipment. I think people assume that we're able that. We have the ability to completely eliminate the risk of avalanches within the scary. And that's just not the case but avalanche forecasters say along with the increased risk. It comes a new cachet becoming cool to say. You've taken avalanche courses and Dir as prepared as you can be Kirk Siegler N._p._R.. News Jackson Wyoming.
Sleep & Parenting with Therapist Christine Lawler
"Right. Everyone have Christie lawler here. And she is the peaceful sleeper. She's a marriage and family therapist and asleep specialist. She's passionate about helping MOMS feel more empowered in parenting and a huge part of that is getting some rest and I would argue just a huge part of feeling empowered in your life in general is getting some good rest so thank you so much for being here Kristie. I'm so excited for what you have to say in offer everyone listening listening so thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited yes so I'd love for you. I guess to kind of tell us in your own words. What exactly you do and how you got into to it? Yeah so I'm marriage and family therapists have been doing this for ten years. And even before I had babies I was realizing all the time that my clients that were the most stuck the ones that were the most depressed the most anxious the most annoyed with their spouses where it felt like nothing was really shifting. Those were the clients that had the biggest sleep problems and as an insomnia sufferer myself and a perfectionist. I hated that my answer would like. Oh yes sleep is hard Let's talk about the the real stuff and so I went ahead and I got trained to treat chronic insomnia and that's where I learned not surprisingly but kind of surprisingly that eighty eighty percent of people with mental health problems have underlying sleep issues. Wow which is so huge and I realize like oh my gosh. The key to mental health and wellbeing is getting good sleep and then fast forward. I had babies of my own and struggled with postpartum depression. But I knew ooh that it was because I was sleep deprived and then anyway fast forward. I delve into everything that could about sleep training. I kind of hated it as a therapist and like I said as perfectionist. I hated it that so many of the books in resources were very mom shaming. I felt like everything was very like fear. Fear driven. Like if you don't do it this way then you're crafty parent and then somebody else's like no no you don't do it this way. Then you're a crappy parent and I was like I wanna be a really good parent and I don't know how to do it but I know that I need sleep and I know that my baby needs sleep and so I kind of figured out my own method blending in all of them together and then I had another baby and it worked again and I was helping my friend sleep train. Their babies and I kind of realized like wait. Maybe I'm onto something that I can be voice in the space. That says sleep is really really really important. I research detachment for years. That's another thing that kind of drove me. Nuts is so many people were like fostering unhealthy sleep habits and the name of good attachment which just wasn't correct. I feel like a lot of moms now with all the resources versus. We have an all this stuff on the Internet. We can get really overwhelmed and kind of go into a rabbit hole of mom shame and fear and so anyway I just. I don't know I kind of realized that I wanted my voice in the space to help. MOMS feel empowered and really restore the the magic of motherhood. That comes when everybody is resting. Well 'cause like like that. I battled with postpartum depression and being tired tired and exhausted and looking at my sweet perfect little baby but not feeling that magic feeling guilty about it and I realized like the magic totally totally came back when I had good sleep
Get More Clients Using Content, with Jessica Lawlor

She is the founder and CEO of Jessica lawler in company a content management business. Jessica how are you today. I'm doing great Joe. Thanks so much for having me. Thanks for being on the show. I'm excited to talk about about this because while I This producing content is a kind of primary business now between courses on the podcast. I feel like I just. I recently started to be intentional about my messaging and kind of the flow of a podcast season. So I'm excited to talk to you. Talk to you as well. And that's great to hear awesome awesome. So why don't we start off with a little bit about who you are and what you do absolutely so we name is Jessica. I my background's uh-huh actually in public relations. So I graduated from College in Twenty Ten temple university here in Philadelphia. I study PR. That was what my career was in for a while all. But I've always loved to write in communicating. The writing is something that I've always been super passionate about very excited about and over the years I've had various blogs jobs. I had a book review blog at one time. I had a personal blog at one time and I have more of a business blog but while I was in college and then as I started my career in public relations I was creating content online. BMI blog and via social media. And actually it was through my blog that I landed my first professional freelance writing opportunity. I actually met someone on twitter. who asked me if I'd be interested in helping to create some blog content and I realize the kind of open up this whole world to me that you you can really build a career and developed a passion through content and so ever since then I've kind of built a side hustle doing freelance writing and then in three years? I took my side Hustle fulltime and I started Jessica Lowering Company which I call Jalen Co for short and it's all about content management in helping people to to tell better stories. That's fantastic for a couple of reasons first of all This is this is going to be telling of You know I didn't. I didn't do a lot of deep research but I like to be surprised and I was surprised to hear that you are in Philly. I am in the West Chester area. Oh my gosh what a small world I know so we are relatively close and That's it's it's really cool to hear how you ended your first Kind of professional content professional rating gig. I feel the same thing happened to me with with websites websites. Basically somebody. WHO's like you're good with computers? Can you make a website and I said no I said I'll pay you And that like you said opened up a whole world to me so That's a really great story which is good because that's kind of what we're going to talk about I kind of started the top of the show that I've been trying to be more intentional about my content and and and putting out the right messages. Maybe we can start with a when you get a new client or customer. What's the first thing? Can you do to make sure they are telling the right story such a good question. It all starts with a lot of research when I when I land a new client. I mean I want to really get to know them. I WANNA learn about their business. Ns I WANNA do as much research as possible. So I really like to ask them if I can take a look at past materials labor. It may be. They already have a blog. Maybe they're just getting started so I do. You have kind of on boarding questionnaire where I asked him questions about who their audience. Who are they trying to reach? What problems are they helping to solve kind of some of those typical marketing questions? Russian that you've probably heard before but really the biggest issue That I hear from clients or potential clients is they just don't really know where where to begin when it comes to content and a lot of them also are wondering is it still worth it to create content when there's so much noise out there right now and obviously my answer to that is yes. It's definitely worth it but really what I love to do to help. People kind of rain in all of their ideas has and create a strategic content calendar. That will actually help the bottom line and help them reach their goals. Whatever that may be Gotcha and do I find that? A lot of people Well let me. I'll give you some context. I last year I interviewed Josh Garoppolo. And we kinda talked about how a a lot of people in their messaging want to just reach. Everybody like my target audience is anybody who wants to buy stuff from me Do you do you find that. A lot of people are not sure what problems they're trying to solve our. Do they say that right. Have people identified the problem that they're trying to solve by the time they get to. You sometimes no oh I mean sometimes yes sometimes no a great example here is I work with the right life dot com so it's a website for writers and one question that were always asking ourselves is who is our audience because writer is a very broad term. Could be a freelance writer. It could be a technical writer. It could be someone who wants to publish a book Doc. Be a nonfiction author ghostwriter. There's so many types of writing so even within you know the right life knows who is trying to reach we wanNA reach writers and then even from there. It's kind kind of do. We need to niche down asking those hard questions so I find that sometimes people do have an idea. They have a broader audience that they're trying to reach an and and you know we try to figure out what are the different Types of content we create Tarija various audiences kind of within their larger audience. If that makes sense
"The Obedience of a Christian Man" published - October 2, 1528
"Day was October fifteen twenty eight the book the obedience of a Christian man by English Protestant William Tyndall was first printed in Antwerp Antwerp Belgium in the book. Tyndall said that kings were the head of their countries church and were accountable to guide not to the pope. The book is is one of the key texts in the English reformation. A- period in the sixteenth century when reformers challenged the authority of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church tender was a scholar and theologian he was also a linguist who became fluent in several languages over the years including French Greek Hebrew and Latin but his religious views grew to be radical and controversial influenced by the reformation tend to believe that only the Bible should determine the doctrine of the church. We also thought that translating the New Testament into English would allow people to have their own understanding of scripture rather than one determined. I the Catholic Church the translation of the Bible that the Roman Catholic Church use the vulgarity was in Latin so the Bible was read in Church in Latin which few people attending religious services could understand but the church wary of anyone or anything that may challenge tradition required ecclesiastical approval of translations and readings of the Bible in English reformer John Wycliffe and those who promoted his views known as lawler's were persecuted as takes for their defiance of the beliefs and practices of the church and their translations of the Bible into English but even though having unauthorized kingland translations of the scriptures result in charges of heresy people still read English translations and reformers acknowledged the Bible as the highest authority the Biblical word not the Pope and Tyndall was determined to translate the Bible into English even after Church authorities in England refused his requests he left England and by fifteen twenty five he had completed his translation of the New Testament and by the next year printing the New Testament Testament was complete. It was the first New Testament in English to be mass produced with the printing press rather than being handwritten thousands of copies. TINDALL's New Testament were printed by the time he was executed in fifteen thirty six per heresy and it influenced later Bible translations including the Sixteen Sixteen Eleven King James Bible Tyndall also published other books in which he criticized the practices of the Catholic Church. One of the most influential was the obedience of a Christian man though the original title of it is much longer than that the book is divided into three main sections preceded by two introductions and the First Section discusses God's laws of obedience in the people bound to obey them the second expressive how the people who have authority should rule first and the third affirms that the literal sense of scripture is spiritual in the book. He said that worshipers should affirm the authority of the Bible over any other authority authorities like the Catholic Church and the post the book also claimed that God appointed kings who authorities of their realms Ambuhl bowland owned a copy of the book which according to anecdotal evidence was eventually shown to King Henry the eighth. It's been claimed that the king liked the stance on Papal Authority authorities expressed in the book and that book influenced the Act of supremacy which declared Henry the eighth and his successors the Supreme Head of the Church of England instead of the Pope Nope. Those claims are unsubstantiated other books. Tyndall wrote include the parable of the wicked mammon and the practice of the prelate
