"logan station" Discussed on Marketplace Morning Report with David Brancaccio
"Why it matters just ask your smart speaker to play the marketplace minute or find it wherever you get your podcasts A ruling on whether apple has paid its fair share of tax in Ireland could be headed to Europe's top court live from London. This is the marketplace morning report from the BBC. World Service Victoria Craig Good Morning today's the deadline for the European Commission to appeal a lower court's landmark ruling back in July that apple did not have to pay back more than sixteen billion dollars in tax advantages to Ireland shameless coffee a lecturer in the Department of Economics at University College Cork explains why such an appeal matters not just to apple but other big multinational companies. There's not so much about the rules. And I earned tax rate of Ireland and is about the specifics off the applicators and other companies you'd be looking at this from the point of view of weird European commissioners going likely to take other similar cases. It's unlikely to result in significant changes informed tax rules but I do think that the overall approach of your meek mission this use of competition policy to try and address what they see as issues the taxes will be of interest remember this isn't the tax investigation. This is the competition investigation and the competition watchdog. Margaret investitures the her legacy really raining in big tech sort of rests. On this decision, doesn't it? Yes. She's little of a political capital in this approach and went for my call. The Big Bang approach when it came to apple, there would have been other options available as she's made a lot of the announcement the fact of trying to told Big Tech and bring them into line I. She's unlikely to let this drop it from a political perspective I. Think an appeal is likely as much as a legal perspective. How quickly do you think we could get a decision on this or I think it will take a number of years today we have the announcement hooded. EP would take place. Then you'll have pleased that both sides of May, it'll take a number of years before the final Judgment Street. So I think it could be two or three years shame coffee from the university. College Cork thanks for your time problem checking the numbers. Now, global shares are taking a breather today after a roller coaster week that saw Asia notch its worst five day stretch since March benchmarks across Europe or little changed the euro is on track for its worst week since the end of March as worries continue to mount about the economic impact, a second wave of corona virus we'll have. Harley. Davidson has decided to pack up and end its manufacturing operations in India. The world's biggest motorcycle market that's because the company which opened a plant there in twenty eleven has struggled to compete with other local and international brands as the BBC's Nicole and under reports the decision to exit India east part of Harley, Davidsons global restructuring strategy where they're narrowing their focus to call markets really struggled to find a foothold in India setting less than three thousand units per year, and it's also a setback. For. The movie governments pay to attract KLUBER manufacturing because it comes in the backdrop of Toyota saying it expand in the country General Motors pulling out in two thousand seventeen Ford bearing operations as well. At global automakers really struggled in India due high taxes both vehicles as well as fuel and high import duties as been a major flashpoint between me and trump governments. In recent years, trump had famously used Harley as an example to point fingers Indian say that it was the king of high tariffs. Run by I'm the BBC's nickel. For Marketplace, the Tokyo Olympics might be postponed until next year but the president of the International Olympic Committee or the IOC is staying optimistic in a two day series of press events continuing this morning Thomas Bach argued sports around the world have come back and shown events can continue safely even without a covid nineteen vaccine millions of dollars are on the line though not just in infrastructure investment but sponsorship deals as Simon. Chadwick professor at the Raisin Sport Industry at Emily Business School. When it comes to sponsorship it's a really complex picture because there are different kinds of sponsors involved and the very top level big global brands that have contracts with the IRC, not just for the Tokyo Games. But for lots of Olympic Games and one could imagine that these sponsors are going to be working in conjunction with the IFC to look at different approaches, different solutions because inevitably for these big brands they. Pay A. Lot of money they want to return on investment but more than that. They have a long-term interested relationship with the IOC. What they won't want to do is they won't want to jeopardize that relationship with the Olympic Movement because presumably that looking towards Beijing twenty, twenty two and beyond to Paris a maybe even further than that, and so they'll be looking for a collaborative way forwards beneath that what you have. Aw something in the region of seventy Japanese companies and brands that are associated with the Tokyo Games and maybe more difficult to convince them not to unilaterally withdraw. Have you seen any sponsors flee yet because of the difficult business environment as we know, it doesn't matter how big or how small you are. Coronavirus has dealt a serious blow to nearly every industry this year and just this week we saw Qantas and. It's thirty year sponsorship of Australia's rugby team. So this isn't unprecedented is at the moment I'm unaware of any withdrawals, but that surely has to be on the radar of the icy because bronze across the world looking at budgets that questioning whether sponsorships offer good value for money in some stock and simple instances, their sponsors that have gone out of business across the world of sports, and so no matter how sensitive the. Trust manages the harsh reality for everybody right now is the some of the sponsorship deals potentially are endangering may withdraw and right may well be that between now and next summer that may be instances west sponsors simply go out of Business Cook Budgets withdrawal can they survive that I think the I ac- can survive it's it's. That is Asian. The operates in a very different way to the businesses in the sense that it's revenue generating cycles heavily skewed towards the years when they have events, and so I think the I is already set up to account for this kind of peculiar mode of operation. It does have long term trusted partners that are paying an awful lot of money, but a logan stations, all sponsors, Mrs old browns are exposed to a certain extent and I think one of the things that the IOC is trying to do is to make sure that the game does go ahead so that the contracts with these big sponsors are in. Jeopardy in any way professor Simon Chadwick thanks for breaking this down. Thank you. Finally while travel might still be just a memory for some of us. One airline is bringing the in flight experience. Home. Australia's Qantas, is auctioning off a thousand of its fully stocked bar carts used on its now retired seven forty, seven jets for nearly a thousand bucks. You get forty mini bottles of red and white wine one bottle of champagne to amenity kits and said of PJ's with a throw blanket all the benefits of a cozy in flight.

"C C O, welcome back. You are listening to steal talking. I'm your host, Gerald steal. It is what I love to do is sit here and gab with you on a Sunday night. But I have some ladies in studio tonight. And I'm really excited to continue this conversation about what is happening in the choke, particularly when it comes to the big celebrations of Easter. I was so excited about Easter. Today was not feeling well enough to go to church, but I went to church Saturday night. And it really meant a lot to me to be there in that Rome with so many different choirs from some of the same denominations. And some that were not. And I love it when it's ecumenical or even when it's interfaith that you can get a chance to meet and greet other people get involved in conversations about what they believe in how their faith how they interact with their faith as well. When Johnny man studio. His Mariana are Yasa, and she is a former Saint Joseph worker and is now employed by learning in style school as the education outreach coordinator, gene is a sister of Saint Joseph of Koran Elliott and a former member of the leadership team. So welcome nice, heavy Marianna, gene Winston is. It's so nice to have you in studio as well. The thing here is that as you know, the work that the sisters are doing is a big deal. Yes, it's huge. What you all are doing. So let me start with you on this, gene. Because times I really changing they are tell us what you really do. How much you Justice is a really big part of the sisters mission. Right. It is let's start with that. Well, I can say that our our mission is love of God. And love of neighbor without distinction and the without distinction applies to the neighbor love the neighbor without any distinction, and it also applies to the relationship between God. And neighbor like scripture says loving the neighbor is loving God. And so that's what we're about as a community. And we express that mission in our works. They're works of Justice their works to reach out to people on the margins. Like, the people that Mariana works with they are works of inviting people in so that they can deepen their spirituality. No matter what denominational belief they come from. And we also are advocates for those who are on the margins. You know, the sisters within the Catholic church the nuns, you have really made a Mark through the elections. Now, you have a voice very clear voice that many of us are waiting to hear we heard about it in two thousand sixteen. We heard about it in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve and so as we watch it unfold, the growth in the voice of the Catholic sisters, it really is growing. How do you feel about having interjected yourselves into the conversation, politically, oh, we belong there? If it's it's who we are. And that's our reason for being is to interject ourselves into that conversation by what we do. And what we say. And especially how we treat those who are not treated, well, generally. Society. So do you agree that the bible is political? If nothing else. Well, that's a very nuanced question. Say that in church one Sunday. And I was very surprised. I started doing my research trying to figure out so what does that mean to me because you know, we've always had the separation of church and state, and you know, you start talking politics is a whole nother business. But of course, you know, a budget is a moral document. Absolutely. It is and and we belong in the with the people we belong in the debate we belong in the civil discourse. And if our voices aren't there, then were missing something? And it's not just the voices of the sisters. It's those who really are are people who care about the common. Good. But it is the sisters of the Catholic church that we are hearing the most from the ones we wait to hear from not just as women, but as community, yes. And the sisters of Saint Joseph of Crandall at have been around in the twin cities area since the eighteen fifties. And so we we are we grew up with this archdiocese, we helped build the infrastructure of this archdiocese. So. So I believe that we not only have had a voice as people who have run these large institutions like Saint Catharine university and Saint Joseph's Hospital Saint Mary's hospital before they became part of other health systems. Now, we have had a voice in in developing policy and advocating for those most in need. And and now we have a voice also in working with those who are the immigrants. Will you have extensions? Houston economic to push. You know, you have extended yourselves quite a bit in this great state of Minnesota and beyond night and knowing all of the services that are offered today. Can can you give me some understanding about what many of them are? Yes, I can tell you that we have some of our ministries, for example, Saint Mary's health clinics is very crucial very crucial because that is a ministry of ours. A work of ours that serves people who are underinsured or. Uninsurable. And we don't ask questions we simply serve their health needs. When they come and refer them to the health systems when appropriate with healthcare without without. They have most of them are uninsurable. Or they are people who are working very hard at their jobs and the deductibles are so high that they can't pay them. So they wait until they're really ill before they come and replace the emergency in a sense. We have we have. And we're working on developing relationships now with the systems in how many of those healthcare facilities to you have a we have I believe right now seven clinics, and there are around the twin cities area as really quite remarkable. You look into expand further we're looking to refocus we're looking to collaborate more. And we will always be there to meet the needs community has always been a really big part of what you. You do getting out into the community. Letting people see who you are what it is that you do no longer. Do I see nuns as old women that are, you know, you know, rubbing their rosaries every day and forgive my, you know, disrespect if I am disrespecting you here, but I don't mean to, but really you think of them as what you see on television. And is so much more than that. People are surprised to see though, they say to us or you don't look like a sister. Right. Well, what does the sisters supposed to look like right Emlyn? You do sound like one see that's the change the changes that we are now looking far past what you look like we want to hear what you have to say this, right? And I can't say the same for the priest and the brothers. I cannot say the same. I can tell you that my focus especially during the election or difficult times in the need. I always look to the women of the Catholic church. Well, thank you. And what I want to say in response to that is that the sisters can't do this alone. And we never have spoken are truth alone. We have we have console siats who are women and men who believe in the same set of values that we do that we hold and that they they commit themselves to living. There are mission the mission that we of loving God. And neighbor without distinction in the context of their own lives. We have Saint Joseph workers like Marianna here. We have friends of Saint Joseph who have affiliated themselves. With us in another way. So the center now is not just the sisters the center is the mission. And however, we live our lifestyle we can be voices for those whose voice needs to be heard. All right Marianna. Let's let's get you in here. Because of you, of course, are employees by learning in style school, tell us what that is. So learning style school is a school for adult immigrants who want to learn English. They have a need to learn English if it's for employment or interviewing for a job when they have kids it's talking to their teachers when they have appointments it's talking to the doctors. But it's not just English. We have citizenship. Classes math classes and part of my role there as the educational outreach coordinator is working on everything else that isn't their academics. I look into organizations in the community. I try to keep them very local. Because the transportation can also be an issue. So station was house. You also deal with housing. Yes. We we look into housing. That's a big issue. I am also on the Whittier board. I recently got elected into it. So I'm looking into the housing committee meetings that they have so that people who are living in the Whittier neighborhood can find those resources because they that's that's become a big issue in in the neighborhood is finding housing as the education outreach coordinator. Do you see the resources fading? No, there's always because this is an conversation. That's why there's always the one who is screaming. The loudest one is usually gonna get some money in that budget, right? And here you are probably screaming at the top of your lungs that hey, we need we need. We need we need more anymore. -tunities to reach out to them yet. I can just imagine how difficult that is becoming for you. Yeah. And you know, I think the Logan stations that are that we work with we can see that they're trying. They're trying to keep a good clientele. Trying to keep people coming. There's a lot of as you mentioned before work it politically in trying to raise some of that awareness of what they're doing. I always I'm surprised because I keep finding new new organizations and new programs that that I've never heard of before that are so close in the area. And so it's just finding those maybe they're not as well known. But just finding those smaller programs that could help our students out. I don't know about you. I'm pretty sure that gene is probably losing sleep. I know I'm losing sleep. Yeah. You got to be losing sleep seriously because that's a very tough time right now in our nation. We used to be the place that opened our hearts and minds to others. You know, we are a collection of immigration. Parents here we are. Now finding ourselves falling away from that understanding, and we have these children that are watching it every day. They're watching us trying to figure out what are you going to do? So what do you say to those immigrants that have arrived? They come to you. They know what the sisters are doing. They know the history of the sisters. They learning so much more about where they can go to get the help they need are you hearing this. I'm almost giving up. No, I see a lot of hope, you know, a lot of them have had really bad experiences before. But I really see the hope when they come in and the strength. Sorry. It's like emotional to talk about because they they're very strong and they continuously come back and learn. If there were two things that I could invent the I would be every time a word leaves my mouth, this should not that I could retrieve it quickly. That'd be the first thing. The second thing would be to bottle hope. No need to sell it just give it away. So to even know that you still have that you know, we were in that place in two thousand seven two thousand eight even with all we were going through. We had hope where does hope you right now, you have it. But this is something that you can retrieve very quickly can you reach in your pocket right now. And just feel yourself up where do you go to replenish? I I. Yeah. I try to keep it through through seeing it in the eyes of others and what they're doing. I think that's the way that you kind of. I replenish, the hope is just looking at everyone else around me and seeing that that strength that they have have you been on that road before yourself looking for the resources trying to figure out how to maneuver. Yeah. Well, I've seen it in family for sure. Yeah. Visit revisit that. And I'm sure that reminds you as well. So this work that you do at Saint Joseph's, right?.

"Side. But he he he they wind up coming back home in the summer of eighteen thirty two and he renews his race for the state legislature. And the outcome of that race. He lost of he lost the race. But let me tell you though, there were people who listen to him give campaign speech or to. There was a prominent lawyer and Circuit Judge in Springfield by the name of Stephen Trigg Logan, now, let me tell you about Stephen Logan, just really briefly. He's another Kentucky. He is the grandson on his mother's side of Colonel Stephen Trigg who was one of the commanders at the battle of blue licks and was killed there on his father side. He's the grandson of James Logan, who was the brother of the famous Benjamin Logan who settled Logan station, which is now Stanford Kentucky. And so this man has deep Kentucky Roach. And he sees this young kind of. Gawky fellow giving the speech and just like Rb Rutledge. He listens. And then finds this man to be not only fascinating to watch and listen to but he says, he's extremely popular. Where he is those are his words. So again one year he's been elected captain of militia company, and he's now referred to by main political operative in the whig party as being extremely popular where he lives now, he lost the election. But in new Salem, alone Lincoln poll, two hundred seventy seven of the three hundred votes cast. Shows you how popular he was. So he's getting onto the radar of the party in Illinois public and party in Illinois as early as eighteen thirty will not the Republican party. Then the whig party would become Republicans the fifties, the whig party, and yes, he's he has gotten on the radar of of the whig party. K? So after he lost the election. Does he go back to new Salem? He's living there. Never really left. New salem. Okay. He ran as a resident of new Salem for a house district. That new Salem was a part of. So what does he do now? Well, this is a rather odd part of his existence there. He is offered a position to become a partner in a general store. And he does so by buying entirely on credit, the interest of one of the partners. His name was Rowan Herndon another Kentucky. And so now he becomes partners with William berry in eighteen thirty three in this general store, and it all turned out rather badly. Frankly, you can almost guess this happening with him when he was no storekeeper. This guy has something else in mind in his life than tending store. But now some of the some of the most wonderful episodes on oh that we've filmed in this production where he minding a general store and Lincoln won the general store. Also be where the the post office was. And it would also be where all the all the fellas would gather sit around, you know, drink cider, or whatever and talk, and we're all the newspapers were delivered and Lincoln is a storekeeper became a voracious reader of newspapers. I'm the only get information about outside world. And so as the newspapers would come in before he gives them to those who they were do he read through all of them. And then as all the loafers would come in and sit around he he became their source of humor because Lincoln could Dag on tele- story that was funny, and he would sit back and just tell stories to these people. This is not a good way to earn a living and. It might might seem fun. But then you wonder, well, where's William berry in this picture will William berry is almost non-existent. He was an alcoholic turns out. And so he was almost not capable of doing much Lincoln had to run the store. And when he ran the store, it just became loaded with these guys, and they sit and laugh at the stories, he tell well as you can imagine the store the store failed and Lincoln was in debt and unemployed, and as he said to he was reduced to the elemental of keeping body and soul together. That's how he described his situation. But then there's certain things that happened for him. These people love Lincoln, and so knowing he was really kind of down in out in eighteen thirty three he was a point. Waited postmaster of new sale all of had didn't give him much money, but gave him something. And so what this guy then does is he hires himself out to people to help help them bring in their crops plant their crops, do odd jobs anything what a love about the guy is. He's never too proud to do what it takes to keep himself going and do keep his eye on the prize that he seeks for himself. And so here's this interim where he's just resolved, whatever. And this is where we get our image of him as the rail splitter among yeah, we'll see he's -solutely. He's out there wouldn't rails making firewood making fence rails. Because he had really in Indiana when he was young man, and he lived there for fourteen. In years before he moved to Illinois. He had he had really spent a great deal of time using an axe. And he says it I mean, he says I grew up using an axe to make rails. And so again, he's not too proud to go back down. And do it at took do what it takes to to make a living. And so it had. And then. On the heels of this. His appointed. Deputy surveyor. No anything about survey. So what he does he calls mentor Graham again and Graham shows him a couple of books on the theory and practice of surveying a book on geometry and trigonometry and his kids. Learn this stuff with him. Cram is a schoolteacher in Graham is teaching him. How to be a surveyor and rink and has confidence. He can acquire these skills precisely. So he does that. And does he get to do surveying? Guess he does short time becomes a surveyor and becomes a very good surveyor. In fact, the towns of Petersburg, which is in Menard county, and it's the town really that became the town of virtually all the new Salem residents. Ultimately, new Salem, basically cease to exist in the early eighteen forties. Most of those people had moved to the town of Pietersburg. Abraham LINCOLN surveyed the town of Pietersburg. He surveyed the town of new Boston Albany and here on Illinois and most of the roads, connecting them. Now. That's amazing. And this is this is eighteen thirty three and eighteen thirty four. He's now only two in three years into his residency there. Some it's remarkable to me totally remarkable. Interesting
