There were little bit bigger within one hundred or two hundred square feet. But when you're at five thousand square feet. Five thousand versus fifty. One hundred feet is not that different in our opinion but they were selling for one point one to one point three million so we thought there was some upside But i still wanted to price it effectively. So we priced at nine twenty five. We had forty seven showings and five offers. Which is way more than i thought on this price point not everybody could have afforded that home and so we just went with the bar that we thought loved the house. The most and we're very fortunate that they paid seventy five grand over asking to get to that million dollar price point but even though we saw coming i think we were thinking we'd get a million but we didn't want a price at their let the market take it wherever it goes.

"Were were at four percent interest so You know your your viewing audience can look at this and realized that we paid you know twenty well all in almost thirty one thousand dollars holding costs. Had i bought this one myself. You know we would have put an extra twenty thousand dollars profit in the deal but it goes to show that even if you're barn at fourteen percent still good deal you're still making really really good. Money yep ghanistan the way the don't get phased but a higher interest rates because even if you put no money down our interest rate is usually the fish news the capitol. Yeah i mean it totally is an and that kind of goes into our third metric. Which is the roi than i know. Your audience is familiar with Which stands for return on investment are spreadsheets or typically run as if it was obviously an all cash purchase and then selling on the back end so it's not a leverage return or a cash on cash return which would be much higher but even in the all in price that we invested our rehab and then what we sold it for. It's a just over a twenty five percent return on investment Again we want to be super upfront this literally as the most profitable deal we've ever done. So our average is twelve to fourteen. Percent are y. So again you know. We've got our spreadsheet color coded for green is obviously very good Orange in our world.

"Deal at eight fifty and we felt super confident based on some cops that had sold that nine twenty five was a very reasonable listing price and there was nothing. Fix up this part of town. So that's a good thing. As there's some great homes that maybe had been updated along the way or ten years ago but there was nothing that was fixed and flip quality so we ended up making a decision to list the property for nine hundred twenty five thousand dollars and what what month did you and uplifting this ended up listing in june. Okay yup yup we finished in may and we ended up listing it in An early june nice yup and then what I'm curious about the pool dot com. 'cause i i don't have much fierce pulls yelich figuring out how much value or how'd you coppa pull into the we. We just said screw. It will the price the market through. Its thing that's exactly what we did. We just said you know what there were so few properties with pools that we couldn't get any good handle on what it might be worth. And i just looked at it on an apples apples basis of there's a bunch of homes that are selling that are are nice but not fix and flip updated and they don't have pool so i should theoretically be able to get more And and we can talk about the end. And that's you know really what ended up happening is a couple moving from texas. Bought the house and loved it and the pool was a big deciding factor for them. Awesome yeah so. I want to talk about. I know on your dion liser here. He has an email us On the website down there at the same months on on the main website for the fix and flip analysis so good the toolkit and grab that You have four metrics on their daily dern.

"The other cool calling card about this one and we'll talk more about it kind of in the the pros and cons but it actually has a pool Which most properties in that part of town don't have pools so we knew when we were kind of trying to factor in the a rv on which free and stands for after repair value. Or how much. Can i sell this thing for on the back end We knew that we ran our comparable sales on not taking into account because it's colorado and not. Everybody loves her a pool. So i personally didn't a lot of our deals have metrics of if you have a two car garage in your property versus another one. That doesn't you can on average sell for twenty to twenty five thousand dollars more. That's a really specific metric. I had no idea and a pool so we just underwrote. The deal is probably going to be a big benefit. Obviously in the middle of cova we had a lot of people from california moving here a lot of people from taxes and we knew a pool was going to be important and so to me was just a nice feature to to sell the property so yeah big property basement two stories But in a weird way it was actually a very kind of quote unquote cosmetic project. Because we didn't do a ton of wall moving we didn't have to finish. The basement was just this massive house that was just poorly laid out and super super dated. Okay so we're about to fly. Yeah okay we can. We can laugh. Actually let's go. we'll talk more thing about So we talked about the rent back and then for us especially in this partnership flip relationship was we worked with the licensed general contractor one of the companies that we really enjoy working with. We've done like ten deals with them. Because we knew that you need somebody that had the bandwidth and the physical manpower to get this project done. So yeah maybe you could save some money working with somebody who's doing a lot of the work themselves as a contractor and trying to sub it out. We immediately picked the contractor. That we've done business with that. Has you know a four five person paint crew separate flooring companies separate drywall. Waller's that you know you'd walk in the house and there's eight guys doing drywall as so much square footage that it was not sensible in our opinion to save a little bit of money but how the project take another month or two because we would have missed the prime selling season that makes sense yup and so now we're going to go through Some spreadsheet numbers here so that will be in the show notes also were. that's some photos. Later worn after photos to those are pretty dramatic. We alex for we hit record on here. Said you want to see the numbers and also see some photos check out the blog post show notes. We'll go from there and of course we're gonna talk about that and go through. What looks like from how underwrote it to how it turned out. Yup so we've got our our denies which were happy to share with your audience and For those that are kind of following visually. The purchase price was four hundred. Eighty five thousand dollars And then the renovation.

"Love it too. We just did a property in city park. That was a beautiful one hundred ten year old home. But you know they are more collective. It's more of a passion project. And i think some investors are willing to pay a little more and take a little less return to do kind of a showcase type property not to say this one isn't because it's really really a cool end But i think that's where some of these core denver areas that are the quote unquote hot areas Were kind of nerds with our spreadsheet and so we just go by return with all things being equal and we've gotten great returns in the suburbs. So that's kind of how it's just kind of shaken on this particular property. Oh that makes sense. I mean you always see your business you ever you know your numbers and you know you look the market dictate for that. Takes a lot times. Yeah because they can't change market but he guess adapt to the market. Yeah so how did you So you got this partnership flip with a previous clients correct previous academy attend e yup and he sources from a wholesaler. Right correct. okay and so. How did that prosecuted tackle here in the weeds. So he's out there decline out there getting the flipping yup was also talked with you about parting up and stuff like hey. That deal came across his inbox. I'm assuming correct how that filter out to you and getting it under contract. Yell was one of those scenarios where i was almost mad at myself saying oh my gosh. How am i not on this person's list To look at these properties. Because theoretically i would have been out there in a second. I personally live in centennial. So it was fifteen minutes from my house But yeah the client took our one day training academy This really fantastic now. Husband and wife couple both engineers super smart people wanna get into flipping fulltime and build their rental portfolio but have very demanding corporate jobs. So they were out networking with other wholesalers. Because when we send people through our classes we say hey you gotta pick two or three areas and try to go really deep and make good roads from a sourcing perspective. So they were really out. Hustling and meeting other investors other wholesalers and and i kinda just say and achieve fashion but the skies parted in only two people showed up at this showing that the wholesaler had gotten the property under contract and it was our client and another person The other person. I don't think was too terribly organized. And so they had to go back and rerun their numbers and and From the training that we did our our client said. Hey i think this is a really good deal but can you double check our math. And so he actually facetime me from the property. Gave me the address. I ran the numbers. Thr- spreadsheet and just congress essentially sight unseen like. Yeah we don't know what's going on with the sewer line but there is monster spread in this property if you can get it. Commit immediately and wool totally partner with you and and again fund the rehab and they wanted to learn so we taught them our system Kind of were in the driver's seat but Yeah so they were on. The list saw the property. I said it's go totally. Green is go on this one. They committed to it. And then Put down the earnest money and then we close roughly three weeks later The client paid for the acquisition of the property..

Longmont all the way down to castle rock and parker and about a fifty mile radius of metro denver Do we call it property redevelopment but it's essentially fixing flips We take existing homes and try to make them beautiful We do not do scrapes. I did one pop top and it was kind of a hot mass. So i got out of that business And then we do a little bit of wholesaling between investors once we hit five or six projects we kinda max out with internal capital and kind of time and resources and so we'd rather just buy and sell between other investors and then we've got a consulting and training division Called the elevation academy where we teach people in a super intensive one day format every step of our flip system Or we also got to other things. Call the partnership flip and this particular project that we're gonna talk about was a partnership flip so we can dive into that more here more in the deal analysis and then we also do One on one consulting and teach people how to flip if they want us to really hold their hands through the whole process. And you and. I've talked kind of off line on this but i own a sister. Company called flow investments and we invest in multifamily.

T. and dementia they were the subject of a documentary last night on NBC sports he's been very public with his battles and he has a lot to say a lot to share so that is coming up but let's get to remember now he's been covering it is the first person came in the newsroom and came across all of our offices today and said Hey guys I think this might be happening today the community capitation of the sentence of former governor but rather quick which ended did happen didn't run yeah it did and I just checked up on the federal bureau of prisons website rob will go if it's registered number four zero eight nine two dash four two four still listed as being located FCI angle would sell his release has not happened yet at least the website hasn't been updated yet this could be a little bit of a process for him to actually leave the facility so we'll see kind of the time line of all of that but you know this is played out over several months we've talked about it before you know that the president has essentially kind of dangled this in front of the bill going which family as a possibility for several months now over well over a year and on the back in August you spoke aboard airforce one about the possibility of commutation saying that the sentence wasn't fair and that you know he was thinking about the the daughters of rival glee the chain is wife he said he didn't know the guy very well even though we did appear on celebrity apprentice in twenty ten but he seemed like a nice guy he kind of repeated that today while preparing to board Air Force One again that same kind of line saying that he thought it was unfair he brought up the the unfair sentence and who was behind it all so he made that decision finally yeah he did and ultimately that has happened so how what happens next is is it's really unclear right because he's in Littleton Colorado we've called them they say that there's gonna be some sort announcement at the end of the day which presumably explains how everything will happen from here it sounds like it's up to the federal bureau of prisons now as far as how this will take place doing the former governor as we have before he likes to do things very publicly so I would I would expect that we'll be hearing his voice at some point we just don't know about this process will that be in Colorado will it be back home in Illinois we just don't know you got to think that Patty because the chin the kids now grown are going to be extremely excited to see him and this news to them is welcome you all I always feel and I know Patty was on the tape some people criticize her for varying degrees of what her knowledge of everything was and how she might or might not have been involved but you think about the family a case like this and I do and I just feel as if that's you know it's going to be an emotional day for them we of course I think you're right the will start hearing a lot more from rival Gladys I don't know that he's going to just soak sort of go quietly into his home I think he is someone who will speak out about the injustices that he feels have been against him in this whole process we don't know what's changed either from the time the president first started speaking about this possibility to today I mean what was it that made the out that minded you know part of it was why do you keep dangling this out there just do it you know if you're going to you're going to commute his sentence just do it instead of you know kind of leaving the family the large for several well I think a rod one theories is very political I mean you know does Roger stone is being sentenced this week and he's being sentenced the federal guidelines initially said recommendation or seven nine years president thought that was excessive with you like rod will go over to not I think a lot of people think that the federal sentence for him was excessive so drawing attention to that in the days before Roger stone a sentence that comes on Thursday I you know I think helps the president build his case against his own justice department he's been highly critical and Roger stone case about the sentencing he's been highly critical of the sentencing in the Robert Graves case the timing of it I think you can be you can bring that called into question however president trump has been talking about this particular idea for some time right he's been mentioning the possibility of commuting or pardoning his pardoning him on for sometime and we want to get to the difference between the two because I know that is there since legal specifics specific that we want to get to and Karen Conti attorney Karen Conti is on the phone here is we're gonna get to her but first we're gonna pause for a second here on WGN more to come at one fifteen.

"Criminals come in in all shapes and sizes though it may strain definition that we can count a six-year-old throwing a temper tantrum in an elementary school among them yet welcome to America in late. September two thousand nineteen a Florida cop arrested to grade schoolers slapped a pair of handcuffs on at least one of them and sent them off to be booked fingerprinted and have their mugshots taken taken both children again six year olds who misbehaved at school were charged with misdemeanor battery a bad day for Harried police officer well yeah maybe a bad day for schools and the juvenile justice system absolutely we spoke with Marsha Levick the chief legal officer for the Juvenile Law all center which bills itself as the country's first nonprofit public interest law firm for children she said does it get more ridiculous. It's absurd. It's it's a ridiculous abusive law enforcement power authority but it's also really unnecessary but all too common abdication on the part of schools and school districts teachers just defer their management of school misconduct to police the pure legality of charging a juvenile as young as six with crime varies across the United States to be clear a juvenile in forty five states plus the district of Columbia is anyone younger than seventeen in Georgia Michigan Missouri Texas and Wisconsin. It's anyone anyone younger than sixteen juvenile offender normally doesn't move through the criminal courts but through the juvenile justice system which has guided according to the office of Juvenile Justice some delinquency prevention quote by the concept of rehabilitation through individualized justice for more serious offenses though juveniles may be tried in criminal court wear if found guilty the court focuses on punishment not rehab of fifty one jurisdictions. That's the fifty states plus the District of Columbia thirty. The three have no lower level limit on holding a young person criminally accountable that excess that includes Florida in effect that means that an overzealous cop legally Wrigley can arrest even an unruly two year old of those eighteen other jurisdictions most put the lower level that a kid can be charged with a crime at ten years years old in those locations six-year-old like the two in Florida simply could not be arrested or charged with a crime levick said obviously it begs eggs the question how can that be. How can we possibly have created juvenile court system that allows for the possibility that six and seven year olds can be arrested. I think they never envisioned and six or seven year old would be hauled into court. I think that's a fair assumption. That's not who designed the system for so what happened in Florida a police Lisa Officer with Orlando's reserve unit arrested the two six year olds on separate misdemeanor battery charges on September nineteenth of two thousand nineteen one was a girl who lashed out in a Tantrum Trim that was brought on by a sleep disorder. The girl's family told The New York Times on Monday September twenty third the Orlando Police Department fired the officer who made the arrests for not following in protocol that required he'd get approval from his supervisor to arrest any minor younger than age twelve. No charges were filed against the two children. Cops in schools rules of course are not new. Florida is one of many states that has bumped up. Its police presence in schools over the years. The Florida legislature mandated it after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman when Douglas high school in Parkland claimed seventeen lives in February of two thousand eighteen the buildup of police in schools understandable in some ways. It's been more in twenty years since two students killed thirteen people and injured twenty one others at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado since columbine up until April of this year America it has been through two hundred and thirty eight other school shootings according to a year long investigation by the Washington Post this increased show of force though does come with problems plums for one as the Orlando Sentinel points out citing report by the Education Week Resource Center black students are arrested at school at disproportionately high hi rate at least one of the children arrested in Orlando was black and as the recent news out of Orlando Shows Police School kids even elementary school kids just sometimes sometimes don't mix levick said we know where this is coming from. This fear of what happens when a child acts out in school. There's going to be some catastrophic consequence I am I need from Columbine for twenty years. We've been overreacting. I'm not aiming to trivialize schools being so quick. Call Law enforcement there obviously many situations nations in which that's appropriate but this is one that defies common sense most would agree that slapping cuffs on first graders probably is crossing the line zero-tolerance. Your tolerance certainly has its costs eleven said initially the thought was that there would be some rationality some reasonableness injected into the school environment would curb those extreme and absurd responses but it may be that trusting in waiting for commonsense to kick in isn't going to work it may be that it does require a legislative response. It's some movements across the nation aim to raise the minimum age that a child can be charged with a crime to twelve years old in some of those thirty three jurisdictions actions where no minimum ages set their calls to set something until then though school police officers may have to lean on something much less complicated than legislative action should when faced with a prepubescent troublemaker a deep breath. Maybe a countdown from ten and a little common sense.

"Mark. Thank you for calling in all the way from Littleton, Colorado today. Really appreciate your time. It's my pleasure. So, so if you're thinking about, and this, this kind of, struck me if you're thinking about just fun, engineering jobs crash testing has to be up there for something you see. And think. Yup. That's what I wanted to for the rest of my life. Is that is that kind of how you started with your career? Or did you kind of take another path? There's nothing early childhood that directed me towards crash testing. But when I was an engineer, I did have an interest in things how they moved how they worked kind of the underlying reasons, things functioned and then in my undergraduate, Purdue University, I started in mechanical engineering, but I definitely had interested in another aspect of engineering, which was bio, mechanical engineering, and that is a unique form that really takes mechanics and applies it to the body. It was only later when I got an industry that I got exposure to crash testing and crush Test Dummies. And it was really interesting. Of course, the first time you see a big test, and how fast everything occurs and things flying off or things breaking you think. Wow. That was pretty intense. So that was really the, the origin of. Of where I am now. Yeah, it's, it's a very visual thing, and it's, it's just super cool to watch. And that's kind of where I wanted to start with was your your. You said it was you started with mechanical engineering, and they went into this bio, mechanical, and I kind of what the start there. Can you tell me a little bit about what that is by mechanical engineering, and bio mechanics? Sure. Yeah. Actually, we need to start with mechanics and mechanical engineering. Really? And, and you can break that down into generally three categories. The first would be, how things are designed in this really comes down to the shape of things the size of things, how things fit together in spacecraft development. A lot of that comes down to the computer aided design and laying things out. Can we fit all this stuff physically into the vehicle? And then there's motion things that move Kinna Matic's on a spacecraft. There are lots of things that are actuated. So either a valve opens or buttons are pressed or. Even pyrotechnics small explosions that occur to release something. And of course, anytime you have motion, you're going to have certain loads associated with them ocean. And then that gets to the third piece the strength in the stress. So a lot of people don't know, those terms, but in general, that's how a material can withstand external environments. So what type of load is applied to those parts in the space craft and I'll give you an example in terms of the human strength. You can think of as how much strength is in your arm. So let's just take your bicep. If you hold out a platter that has a hundred pounds of cookies on it, and you're holding that straight in front of you. You can think of I have a certain amount of strength in my arm to support that hundred pounds. Now stress is a common output. We look at in engineering to see if we that. That part in this case are bicep came with stand, the amount of load put over a certain area. So your bicep would be the cross sectional area if you cut your bicep and half now if I'm strong enough to support that hundred pounds the strength is greater than the stress and I will not see a failure. Now, if I take my son Dylan who's eight and I asked him to hold the same plate of one hundred pounds of cookies. Now he has a much smaller cross sectional area for his vice of same force. And if his arm is the same length, now the sudden he has a lot more stress and his arm will fall, and he doesn't have enough strength. So in that case, the stress exceeds the strength, and that's when things break, so on spacecraft. Same kind of thing when the stress is higher than the strength of the material or the part, then you can get catastrophic failures. So it's really those three things to the design the motion of things and strengthen stress, that's all mechanical engineering. Yeah. It's like it's like if a job if a job needs to be done, what you're doing is basically you're solving that problem. You're, you're trying to figure out what's the best way that I can solve this problem and make sure on the strengthened stressed side that it's going to be reliable in solving that problem. Louis. Yeah. And there are multiple teams of people that do these things. So it's a big collaborative effort, both on the Lockheed Martin side and the NASA side to ensure that we're really addressing these three aspects of mechanical engineering. So then back to your question about bio mechanical engineering. That's where it gets interesting. So in general bio, mechanics or biomechanical engineering is take those same fundamentals of mechanical engineering. And now apply them to the body, the challenge, there, is that, of course, there are no parallel, or perpendicular surfaces. There are no right angles in the body. All the materials are pretty much non linear, and then people come in different shapes and sizes in different body strength. So you're going to have inherent variability as in everybody's different. So you can't just apply one set of loads, or environments to one person, and expect a different person of a different size to be able to withstand that same environment. Yeah, that makes things a little bit harder. Because now do you not only have to solve that problem with the mechanical engineering part? Now, add the human, you got to not only solve the problem, but you have to make sure that the human is going to be okay when the problem is solved, and then that it's flexible enough that, you know, multiple types of people can survive it, or it, it, it works for them. Is that right? Yeah. Yeah. And, and so then if we look at now applying this whole bio, mechanical engineering to Orion specifically, and keeping the astronauts safe to be able to do all those things we need to we need to look at how to protect the humans in a variety of different ways. Right. We need to provide services that support them that limit that motion. And that keep those external environments that are applied to the vehicle to a level sustainable by humans without injury. And that's, that's really the crux of my job, and also what makes it interesting because then I get to work with a, a large variety of people both on the NASA and the Lockheed side. So that's the for example, the crew systems team, Lockheed Martin crew systems team in Houston, designing the seats that maybe the Orion crew survivability systems team, the suit guys at NASA. J A, C, human factors, folks. Can stress and other mechanical analysis teams all that stuff needs to go into what we consider for astronaut safety and assessment of whether an injury is going to occur, not so like for let's take let's take an aboard for an example. You're, you're on your way into space and something happens. And, and the abort system is supposed to carry the crew module away with the people inside safely. So from a mechanical side, you gotta make sure that it actually pulls it away from a speeding rocket. Okay. That's fine. But from the from the human side, you gotta make sure that it does it in a way where the humans are safe and going to be okay as well as the crew module. Yeah, absolutely. And, and so that's the trick of it now, we'll get to later. But that's the whole purpose of our son aboard number two tests, that's coming up later this summer and really from that test. It's, it's my job along with. Others to to understand and characterize that environmental. Keep in mind that's one test, we can collect eight on that test, but a real aboard could occur in any number of ways. And so that's where as an engineer, I have to take the one day a point, I have, and then understand how that could possibly change, and then could analytically put in different sized people and then carry it forward to that assessment of potential injury. Yeah, it seems it is the I think the way I'm kinda discredited in the way you're describing it does seem pretty straightforward. But I think I think there's more to it let so before we kind of go into the Orion. Partly just kind of expand on this bio mechanics, part, you know, where did this all start tells the history about about bio mechanics, and why this is important? Yeah. So it, it really is relatively a recent field of engineering in that. Let's say by the nineteen fifties, we, we started seeing automotive accidents in, which people were not surviving, right? We had vehicles that went fast enough now to impart a load potentially beyond with the body could handle at that time. Very little research had been done. There were limited animal studies trying to characterize impact, but the, the one person that would probably be credited, as the, the grandfather of impact bio mechanics would be a guy named Colonel John Paul staff. He was actually a physician within the air force. This was in the nineteen fifties. And if you Google him, you can look up on YouTube John Paul step, forty six point two Gs and what that means is envisioned this in the fifties. Your boss comes into a Monday morning meeting, and he says, all right team. Here's what we're gonna do. We're going to strap me to a rocket sled and I'm going to go down a track at six hundred thirty miles an hour. And then you're going to stop me within one second. Everybody in. What blow your mind, right? You think this isn't sane? Yeah. But the reality is at that time member, this is the fifties. They didn't understand what human body could take. Now he didn't just jump into that. He actually did a number of impact tests restrict himself into a seat and they just slammed the seat and arrested at quickly and he flails forward, but he's ok. Well, they worked themselves up to this rocket sled tests, and you can see the video on YouTube, but what he did was. He said. All right. I'm going to put myself in the situation because I want that data point, this could end badly. But we need to understand, and as part of the air force, he was really thinking of the entire aircrew before we expose and ask our pilots to be exposed to objections and crashes. I'm gonna understand this. So we strapped himself in put a helmet on, and he went shooting down this track at home and air force base in New Mexico. At the time he was considered the fastest man alive at six hundred thirty two miles an hour. He stopped, like I say within one second that imparted forty six point two jeez. So that's forty six times his own bodyweight nearly eight thousand pounds when he stopped and when he stopped he had broken ribs he had a hernia. He shattered his wrist his eyes hemorrhaged. He was temporarily blinded his eyes were full of blood, and he fractured his tailbone, however, he survived, and that data point to this day is one of the most extreme exposures intentional, extreme exposures that survived, and that later populated. What's a limit for what we consider people can take from just an acceleration exposure standpoint. Keep in mind, he was well, protected yet, a huge harness on and a helmet, etc. But. He he put himself at risk to make that point. Yeah. The idea is, you know how much how much can the human body withstand. And this guy put himself through the most extreme circumstances possible to like you said, get that data point. But now what can we learn from that? I think you know, one of the first things I think of is all right. Well, if we're going to design a system. Let's make it. So that doesn't exert forty two, Gs on a human body. Right. I think that's, that's probably fair. Yeah. So then I guess, a lot of that got taken into human spaceflight then because because if you're talking about, you know, we kind of reference, an abort scenario, but even launches and stuff like that, you, you don't wanna you don't wanna have that much force on, on a person. That's right. But keep in mind, and this is one thing, that's probably not clear is there is a, a certain amount of impact that you can take without damage, and then there's certain levels of the within the body and certain types of damage within the body that can occur. And the interesting part is now it depends on which direction you load and how by how much a lot of people ask me this question when you when we have an abort, let's take this ascent aboard case, everybody asks me, or are they going to pass out? Well, the answer is not necessarily, it's very much function of, how intense that acceleration is the magnitude of the celebration, and then. How quick it occurs, and that's one thing that after staff was done with his research. A guy named Jim Brinkley, who was a civilian work in a Wright, Patterson air force base in Dayton, Ohio. He during the Vietnam era wanted to address a little bit more dedicated to direction -ality, and that magnitude what the limits were, so he took air force cadets put them into his own slid test. They didn't go anywhere close to forty six Gs, but what he did he placed it in at different orientational. So head up head down front work backward and started to vary. The magnitude and the.
Colorado STEM school shooting: One dead, 8 injured, 2 in custody
"There's been a shooting in Littleton Colorado out of school. And this was a k through twelve school stem school, and you have seen maybe some of the video of kids lined up outside of the school to people have been arrested in connection with the shooting. The details are kind of sports and coming out, slowly, but two suspects are in custody. The governor says he's monitoring the shooting happened late in the afternoon on what would have been rainy kind of school day for those kids who were there in in Littleton. And we see the images again of kids lineup out of school putting their hands up and the good news is immediately. The Douglas county sheriff's department responded and bam got them into custody suspects. And and of course, unfortunately, there eight victims that were injured seven to eight they're saying. But nobody killed in. This is in Littleton. So a suburb of Denver, and they were on the scene the police and the sheriff's deputies almost right away, and they try to suss things out yet kids on the ground. I mean, what an awful thing they said they were initially looking for third suspect. But then they ruled that out one victim is in good condition that children's hospital and Colorado south campus in highlands ranch. So that's a good thing. And immediately the sheriff's department tweeted something out that the school is locked down and all other Highland ranch. Schools were on lockdown so kudos to them. They handled the situation correctly Sem school was placed on lock down, of course, after the shooting up, and and it's been lifted it was a couple hours later lifted, but you know, about eighteen hundred students there and it's in Littleton, Colorado. And you think back to Columbine high school back in ninety nine two students killed. You know, twelve of their classmates and how awful that was and it brings back those memories.

But the good news is as of now, nobody was reported dead shot to death in that incident. Thank goodness. And they immediately responded to what was happening there. Speaking of responding, and I said this in the first hour, but if you didn't catch it, there's still the back and forth over the tax records of the president's. And will he release his his tax records, and the Democrats are screaming for the MoMA hill and the White House administration the people around the president or not releasing the tack wreck tax records, so that's one bone of contention contention? And then, of course, the attorney general and fussing out. The Muller report is the other. Bone of contention between the White House and the hill. There's always something right? I talked about this show is being what's what do you need to know that affects your life? In other words, what's happening in your backyard in my backyard? You know, what happens in Washington affects us the Miller report caused millions of dollars it affects us the outcome. And whether the outcome was cracked, or what does it mean for the future all of that you take into account, but even from just a financial point of view? It's it is part of of what you and I pay for that's part of the whole if you want to think about it that way in a sort of a long game sense. That's part of it. And of course, mentioning the school's shooting right at the top here. I am in Denver just spent a day in a night in little ten beautiful little area where you look out, and you can see incredible views of all kinds of different mountains from different perspectives. And it's just terribly terribly sad that students live and deal with this. And no, this is a possibility. And in one way, that's the good thing because they can't school districts can't be ignorant to the fact that happening and they have the the drills and how to get out of the school and what to do and what to do in classrooms. But it's still always so shocking. I just think of when I was a kid never thought in my head. You just wanted to fit in you wanted to survive or thrive or whatever think back to your own days in school. But one thing I was never worried about was bullets bouncing off of deaths or hallways or running to get out of a building to to run from people that were trying to shoot me for no reason whatsoever. And and then family members worried never even thought in her head. In fact, we had fire drills and the one thing we did have. I went to a very big high school in cherry hill, New Jersey, we had bomb evacuation drills and that happened once in a while. And every once in a while we would get a bomb scare, but it still was. So so fairy very rare that that happened wasn't very often that that happened. He coming up at the tail end of the hour. Great information, anybody dealing with potentially diabetes, hypertension. Why do you need to get that checked? Why do you have? To be diligent and pay attention to to what you're eating and what the effects can be of that. We've got a great nurse coming on at the at the end of the show, and this is nurses week. And I think of I think of nurses, and I have a cousin Jen DeMarco who's a nurse at children's hospital in Philadelphia, and she's in Neo Natal unit. Which of course, there's some sad stories with babies, but I think of her job in the other nurses on that floor, and then dealing with nurses, when I've been visited people in hospitals or dealt with that and what an important role they play. So I do, you know, we always have days and weeks to honor things and some of them are seem so trumped up, but or invented anyway, and there's this week. I think is really really good thing to give back to sometimes the men and women who serve in that capacity that don't always get recognized. So you'll enjoy that conversation and employees. We have another doctor that's going to join us to talk about a subject where women feel like they're crazy. Either husbands or partners feel like they're not. And all it is is getting into that middle age is not all there is but arriving at the doorstep of middle age. And what does that mean when you go through a change of change that people don't wanna talk about which by the way, men also go through a chain. So we're all kind of crazy. It's a very very enlightening conversation. I thought I'd tell you a little bit about Denver. I mentioned I'm here tragically that shooting happened. So I'll just recap that so far no deaths reported. That's the good news. It's been one of those kind of rainy days in Denver. But no snow to report snow is fun. When you're skiing on it. Not when you're trying to fly away from it. My next show will be back in the satellite facility in in Texas, of course, but just the views in Denver arson sessional. And but but one thing you can feel is that altitude shift I felt it when I was at the airport right away and was picked up by a friend. I could feel the change these different places where.
