As their classic examples of when note to read for someone or even went of a refund so incident number one lady are no not for a long time normally meet in the flesh. leaves long distance away from where i live and now i'm working on she book to session. She phoned to book as it's great book trade and and she put Which includes histology and it was a ninety percent last reading psychic readers. This occupation so i wouldn Or she i think she had gold ashtray. Was that called off moins. Working did this particular lady have cau- yes she did. So it's a sark region and i'm vessel a. I decided to give some extra time because of what was going on and and it cut me show is particularly is husband had died just before christmas amorini february two months ago and she was also concerned about her elderly mother who she was now caring for so kante too much because obviously patient confidentiality but just an outline and it became evident in the reading that she wasn't enjoying the waiting and be. I could tell that she was too stressed to make sense of anything. I was telling her and she was repeating what i had told her. The last time.

"America is back," Biden tells Munich Security Conference
"By video link at the Munich Security Conference. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke NPR's Rob Schmitz was watching from Berlin. Welcome, Rob. Hey, Howdy President Biden emphasized today that he is reaffirming America's commitment to the transatlantic relationship. What else did he have to say? He had a lot to say. First off. He really hit home that Europe is a cornerstone of America's approach to the rest of the world, and that the transatlantic alliance is more important than ever, he pointed out. The West faces a new set of challenges. He mentioned the strategic threat of China as well as Russia and, of course, the Corona virus pandemic. But he said one of the biggest challenges the West faces now is that as we gradually come out of this pandemic, he said, many people in the world are wondering if autocracy Has emerged as a better system for governance. And he said the U. S and Europe need to work together to show the world that democracy will prevail. Here's what he said Democracy doesn't happen by accident. We have to defend it. Fight for it, Strengthening renew it. We have to prove Our model is in a relic of history. It's a single best way to revitalize the promise of our future. And the response from Germany or France. You know, Merkel and the crone got right down to business. Both of them reacted with the kind of a laundry list of items that have built up over the past four years that need to be done multilateral approach to vaccinations for the developing world, reinvigorating The Iran nuclear deal. The Paris climate accord Afghanistan, you name it, these air all issues that from the European perspective have suffered from neglect under the Trump administration. And have been festering over the past four years. I spoke to Sudha David will of the German Marshall Fund after the event, and she told me it's clear. Both Merkel and McCrone are thrilled that Biden has reaffirmed the transatlantic alliance. Europe needs a strong U. S. And buying, I should say, because Merkel is now a lame duck. She's going to be inward looking as she looks to preserve her legacy, which has taken some knocks lately because Germany has not done a great job dealing with the second phase of pandemic. And Micron is going to be busy with an election in 2022. But are the French president? Macron did say that the EU needs to be more involved with its own security going forward, and we've been hearing that for the last couple of years. That was a complaint from former President Trump that that you needed to spend more on its own defense. Are they actually doing that? They are And as you mentioned, your former president, Trump spend years badgering them about this. And in today's speeches, both Merkel and McCrone pointed out there spending more than ever on defense and Grown even went so far to say that Europe should spend even more in the future because, he said, the U. S is clearly focused on China and in the Pacific region more than ever. And that means that Europe needs to step up its own defense to better manage threats in its own neighborhood. That's NPR's Rob Schmitz. Joining us from Berlin. Rob, Thanks for your reporting. Thank you. What is the point of buying something now? If you can't

Kathy's written for a number of publications but recently she's written a book titled australian. Women pilots has sub subservient amazing true stories of women in the air. Kathy welcome to the airplane gigs. Podcast hang smack. Thanks for having me now. Really astute and longtime listeners may actually remember kathy's name or it might sound a little bit familiar. That's because well she's australia and she has been known to hang out with A few of our australian friends from plane crazy down under grant and steve. So it's really exciting to have kathy. This is a an very interesting very amazing book. And we're going to start off talking with kathy and then come back to the news after that. So let's let's get right into it. A kathy in the book you tell us the story of i believe ten women that all have really fascinating remarkable stories. And we'll talk a little bit about how this came together and in how you found these stories but to give our listeners. An idea of the kinds of stories that we can find in this book. Maybe let's talk a little bit about the first australian woman to fly around the world in a single engine airplane solo. Maybe give us a brief version of gabby story. Thank he Gabby cannot in non nine nine was a single mother of two children. And she had this burning desire to fly around the world for probably some personal reasons. Various reasons Who knows what caused pushes somebody to do these things and she drew back on. A mortgage bought a single engine. Saratoga had kitted out with long range fuel tanks and everything that she could afford and think that she needed borrowed some survival gear and hit it off in august nineteen eighty-nine. She intended to be gone for three days and she came back. Nine thousand nine days later so it was quite a remarkable fates and it's some was a long trip. Yeah yeah and she more or less followed. Amelia earhart erhart's route but as to her motivation. It seems like she was doing it for the the love of flying in. Not for some promotional purpose or to seek notoriety particularly. It seemed like it was kind of a humble flight. She had absolutely no desire for the publicity other than the fact that the publicity provided sponsorship. So that was the only reason she got tangled up with that side of it but became a big thing and because the country was pretty gripped by this housewife fit. Who's at forty is some. Lift the kids with some friends some reliable friends and taken off around the world and She was intrigued by merely earhart actually and she loved immediately hop story. She'd been flying across the pacific with a guy named jim. Hazelton who's well known. Australian aviator and when i go to majority or the marshall islands he said this is about where we think. Amelia earhart went missing and it really got gebbie thinking again about it. And she dived into any books she can find on earhart and other female aviators when she got back and that really sped or on say. Someone gets a good idea but forgetting to do that trip. I think it was about finding soft confidence. And she just felt she really had to do something for herself to take control of her life and you know how it can be being a wife and a mother

The reality is this. We're in a moment of rage. Every mother I know has just had it. With many schools and daycares closed more than 12 million women lost a job. Just over two million have left the workforce altogether. We in nine months Lost 30 years of progress. Think about that. So what do you think is the solution? I think the solution is basic income from others. It's part of what she calls the Marshall Plan for Mom's a reference to the program that helped rebuild Europe after World War two. The Marshall Plan is what we think of when we want to build something from the bottom up. We want to be bold, bold by calling for a short term monthly stipend for moms who need it, along with paid family leave affordable child care and pay equity. The plan is endorsed by dozens of celebrities and business leaders. And they hope the Biden administration. It's certainly an issue that Secretary Yellen his economic team are focused on and we'll be looking for ways to help a piece. Not everyone thinks paying mothers is a good idea, including that see Stevenson, a member of President Obama's economic team. Hanging people to stay home is really encouraging something that could end up ultimately undermining the goals of having more equality in the home and having more equality and the workforce. If you pay mothers who are home does that discourage them from entering the workplace? Absolutely not. Simply values their labor. We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to fix things for the better once and for all. Norah O'Donnell of
Walsh Confirmation Hearing for Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to be Labor Secretary

He was before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee often referred to as the Health Committee, Senator Elizabeth Warren, introducing the Boston mayor Marty Walsh, calling him quote a champion for unions attracting corporations to Boston to create jobs. Kansas Senator Roger Marshall with this exchange with the Boston mayor over the issue of a $15 minimum wage, I look at a cost of living Median house in Boston $600,000. Median house in my hometown of Great Ben is $83,000. The cost of living index in Boston is literally to point to a multiple of 2.2. From where I live. You have a minimum wage right now of $12. These 12 70 80 $12 the minimum wage in Great Bend a 7.25. So was $7 our job in Great bend and be like a $16 our job in Boston, Massachusetts. I guess you know, I'm trying to get at is how can we have a nationwide minimum wage of $15, which which, Frankly, would kill a lot of jobs and Kansas. So had man. I'm all for If you want $15 an hour in Boston, knock your socks off. But in Kansas, that would be a pretty big wage job killing wage. Well, thank you, Senator. I think the You around minimum wage that you're gonna be debated on the Senate floor in the United States. Congress floor. President Biden has distressed that he is supportive of $15.50 dollars now minimum wage a nation wage national national wage. I support him in that $15 minimum wage, And I think that is going to be many conversations from now till something passes the Senate in the House. Around conversations about how that if, in fact that passes how does that $15 How many ways can instituted that from today's confirmation hearing for Marty Walsh and exchange with Republican senator from Kansas Senator Marshall He is, of course, President Biden's nominee to become the next labor secretary, and Marty Walsh, by the way, who joined the Laborers Union local to 23 at the age of 21.

Well, that's that's a good deal. It's a good bargain. Nonetheless, I support him in that $15 minimum wage. Cameron Regal WBZ Boston's news radio, The Senate panel
Chicago Public Schools Students Will Be In Remote Learning Again Thursday; No Deal Yet With Chicago Teachers Union

Glenn Marshall is live at CBS headquarters with the latest Glenn Good morning that a 48 hour cool down period extended to today, with CPS and CTU still figuring out everything now they CPS and the mayor also released a statement earliest week Senate. They have come to some type of agreement with some things, but it's still not enough for CTU teachers to get back in the classroom now, right now, CTU was still asking for Health metrics that will shut down schools during outbreaks and remote accommodations were teachers who lived with people with medical conditions and a vaccination plan for teachers who desire to receive the vaccine. Now this is where is he to you stands after negotiations have Paul since Tuesday.

Last night, We found out that the CPS was offering to allocate 1500 doses of the vaccine per week for employees but wants them to return to the classroom after the first dose, and then the director of CDC came out, saying Research does not back seat to use claim that the vaccine is needed. Take a listen Increasing data to suggest that schools can safely re open and that that savory opening does not suggest that teachers need to be vaccinated in order to reopen safely. Now. Later today, CTU will have parents on a Facebook live chat that will discuss exactly what it is that they're looking for in the hopes of actually getting back into the classroom with everything that they agree on with CPS. Of course, we'll bring that to you as we receive it, but for now alive outside of CPS headquarters, Good marshal the BG and news
Mahomes the rare quarterback with no weakness
"For the back on stage. Again for mahomes. It's quite a feat to be this good at this age. One imams teammate. Slave bell has only been with the chiefs a couple months clearly though. He's seen enough to determine that. Patrick mahomes could very well the the greatest player ever take a listen a great thing. More petty is. I never played these his first year. What are you gonna like popular. I think i was sitting out now. So i never played against bad but always of always washed on. I'm always thought he was like a great player. Then i came here. And then when i came here. That's when i really hit me like off like he might be the greatest player ever because the way practice. You know High goes about his business. People see the throws and things that have that he does in the game if things kind of like. I don't know there's like an accident but it's not he practices. It's so much like i wish. Obviously early practice unbelievable but my idea of thought. He's a ten before i came here now. These probably go twelve former offer running back. Brian west for joining us now brian. Good morning to you. Let me start with this. Eating people are rushing to crown. Patrick mahomes the next goat morning and you know this is going to be unpopular comment because i know we have the number one. She's saying in the world in nick right here but we are absolutely rushing to crown patch homes way too early but i understand why i understand. Why because he's had a great start to his career one of the best ever. We see the arm talent. We see all the special throws. But i want to remind you guys. Three guys bridge star drew brees and aaron rodgers. Three guys that have a combined three super bowls. Each one of those guys went to one and one thing that we want to talk about. Is that after. Each one of those guys won the super bowl. Everyone was saying they're going to be the next goat. They are the greatest of all time. They're going to go on a run. They're going to win. Multiple super bowls over and over and over. Brett farve actually made it to super bowl the next year in lost and that one so i think we have to be patient as far as how far we push these guys to saying that. They're the dote pack them host. Who has a long way to go and just to show that. I'm going to give you my top number one. Obviously tom brady ten super bowls being able to make the super bowl playing in his forties. That's amazing number. Two joe montana. Four for four in the super bowls they also achieved the rare feat of winning three in a row nineteen ninety there in the nfc championship game. He gets out by leonard. Marshall they won the super bowl that they would have won that game and then number for three. We talk about peyton manning. Mvp trophies and so we know how special peyton manning wasn't what he meant to our game. So i think we have to understand how much further patch mahomes has to go. But we have mentioned this as well if hashem aho's wins two more meaning this one and another one and then he goes on to shatter all of the passing and td record at that point. He enters the room with the conversation of the greatest of all time. At that point he inches that room. And then we say okay. Maybe it's not just about the super bowls. Maybe now we can look at the armed town. We can look at the mobility all the other things around. Just than just winning super bowls at that point when i look at it.
Getting back to the pre-pandemic economy
"Know what this economies like right now right shaky in many parts uneven who is recovering and who's not uncertain for both people and businesses so the forecast we got yesterday from the congressional budget office. It's guesses for this year. Promising even without more federal relief we're on track for the economy to be roughly back where it was in the before times by the middle of this year. Thank you vaccines. The labor market is gonna take longer. But let's examine that baseline concept for a second here the idea of getting back to the pre pandemic economy because as marketplace's kimberly adams reports even if the numbers do get back to where they used to be the economy's probably gonna look real different even though gross domestic product can kinda be shorthand for how an economy is doing.

At the usc marshall school of business and says all this will shape. What the recovery looks like. If you come from a wealthier background you bounce back a lot faster than if you come from a poor background and so another concern we might have is that this pandemic is going to increase income inequality this same logic applies for small businesses. I think we need to define what is normal cherise. Conan johnson is a managing partner at the advisory firm neck.

Said they have it at and they don't understand exactly what it means. Most people take leadership they dictatorship. They think demand they think for. They think all of that stuff. I don't look at leadership like that. I actually look at leadership at serving people because people need you in a sense so you're serving and if you consider yourself leader but honored that you don't want to serve than than than the statement of of if serving you as below you been leadership is beneath you.

"Cheaper serves in europe so one of the aims of the marshall plan was to make germany self self-sufficient again so that it could end its dependence on the united states and we could end our occupation and the only way to do that was to restore germany to its previous position as the main capital goods supplier for western europe. Germany needed to rebuild its economy dollar by dollar mark by mark no more cigarettes as currency that is not going to work and so in the spring spring of one thousand nine hundred forty eight the united states decided it was going to pursue currency reform unilaterally in the western part of the country tree the united states and its allies introduce a whole new currency the deutschemark new economy currency new start new you but there's a problem stalin considered this to be an an enormous threat to his <hes> <hes> control of <hes> germany the new deutschmark smart mid western powers were serious about setting up a separate west germany and the soviets really hated this they also feared that it would cause a bunch of problems in east germany that all those reichsmarks now completely useless in the west would flood the east causing massive inflation. The new currency was in effect an attack attack on communism. The usa fed up and threatened by the marshall plan. They blockade whistling and mind you berlin. Germany's capital city city is in the heart of the soviet occupied zone. They blocked the roads. The railroads and the canals nothing can go in nothing can go out two million in west berliners are completely isolated and this starts one of my favorite moments of postwar history. You've got these nineteen forties planes trying to get around around the blockade. They're basically sending everything that the west bill and his knee by f._b._i. Live close on uninterruptedly plane landing or taking every body that second day fly in money tools bicycles shoes heritz curates for about a year america and its allies flying everything in west berlin needs to survive one point planes or leaning every four minutes pilots even throw boxes of candy out the windows flying in with these little parachutes made out of hanke cheese. Meanwhile the u._s. is sanctioning the soviets to so fast forward to may nine thousand nine hundred forty nine. <hes> <hes> stalin comes to the conclusion that the blockade has been <hes> a strategic failure and a diplomatic failure he lifts the blockade and simultaneously with that the united states and its allies create <hes> an independent west german state the federal republic of germany. Ben steele says it was the first step in creating what would become the european union. The european union as we know it today was was really an idea that began with the marshall plan in the state department the marshall plan rebuild germany but the money also convinced france to uh rebuild germany exist it created a western block united against communism that would lead directly to the e u now george marshall he was uscis humble guy and he probably wouldn't claim credit but do you know who did think what he did was awesome. That's the nobel peace prize. Oh whoa i've never seen a nobel peace prize well. George marshall mounts the rostrum. It's so much smaller than i thought it'd be. The marshall plan.

If you press the button you get the full history of world war. Two in germany. Italy and japan threatened the peace of the world. It's long. We'll do the shorter version. Well what's happened and afterwards your was in chaos. Fifty million europeans homeless people were starving. It was hard to get around and in many countries known was sure who'd be in charge watt. The continent was desperate for basics like we and milk but also coal and tractors and railroad lines a lot of your looks bad but ah especially germany no one knows what will happen to germany. It's not just occupied is divided into four occupation zones controlled by britain france. It's in the united states in the west and the soviet union in the east. That's a big part of the reason it's in freefall. Here's a young child. A young boy and if you look at disclosed are very very tattered. He has no shoes. You've probably got double socks on. Paul barron showed us this picture of a kid in germany after the war he he looks about maybe five years old but he has a cup and the question is what is in the cup. What did the students usually guess. The students usually guess yes soup and they're very surprised when we tell them no. It's tobacco that this young boy is out looking for cigarette butts so that he can shred god that cigarette and get the tobacco germans were using tobacco as a form of currency like really pulse shooter oldest the prices from that time thirty six for chicken ten cigarettes for a loaf of bread german currency. The reichsmark was almost worthless. The economy was devastated that that is bremen germany. It's like a gutted dole's house with no dolls. I mean it looks like the whole place has to be just raised and starting over again and that was just that's across germany and here's where we get back to general. George c show his chief of staff of the u._s. Army during the war and basically his job for the last six years has been to destroy japan and germany and he was really good at it. He is president truman talking from that giant map at the museum was able to exercise greater influence uh than any other man on the strategy of victory and after all that george marshall quite understandably wanted to move someplace. He's pretty and rest. You know take a hobby. He wanted to go home and plan his roses. Really he was a garden. Oh yeah and he does retire <hes> mm but only for a week marshall ends up getting us by president truman to become his secretary of state and he takes the job which means he has to answer this big question and what shall we do with germany up until this point america still thought of germany as the enemy these were nazis after all yes so president roosevelt roosevelt secretary of the treasury henry morgenthau he made it official occupation policy to de industrialized germany treasury department under morten thaw wanted to turn germany into pasture land and take all of its industrial power and push it out and that's what victor's typically did you know oh plunder and pillage. It's been that way for thousands of years but marshall was part of this new foreign policy team truman's team and it's not taking a different view one that was more motivated evaded by the fear of communism at this point. The soviet union is expanding. All over eastern europe plus communists in france and italy are winning elections and they're fighting to takeover greece and turkey all right so one of the first things marshall does is secretary of state traveled to moscow. I see a picture here of of of marshall clearly in russia. Russia is in moscow. This is the foreign ministers conference and moscow nineteen forty seven modules there what turns out to be a six week long meeting with foreign minister ministers of all the major powers there to figure out what to do about jimmy. He's coming out of this building here. Did he actually meet with stalling. Oh yes he had a private meeting meeting. He thought that they could come to an agreement of some type because they had done it. During the war now the soviet union had lost something like twenty six million citizens during the war so stalin says is he wants germany to pay billions of dollars. Worth of war reparations not entirely unreasonable the always me germany pay after one but that didn't turn out so well obviously but the bigger issue on the table isn't reparations. It's what germany will look like politically economically wants. The occupation ends so marshall also makes few offers basically demilitarize germany. Make sure it's not a threat to the soviet union again but let her recover economically. The soviets already control the east germany marshall wants to prevent them from gaining power in the west but stalin rejects marshalls proposals and by the end of the six weeks. It's becoming clear this marriage is not not gonna work. Here's marshall straight after the moscow conference. We have not made of copper. However on the flight back jack all he talked about was that conference that he had with stalin and the need to do something something big something the world i had never seen before when marshall gets back. He tells his team at the state department. It's time to start formulating a plan and while they're doing that. He decides to send out a message wjr and he doesn't this kind of weird way.
