"And those flaws impact some people, more than others. Anything that makes you more vulnerable as a citizen is going to making more vulnerable to the possibility of a false conviction. Barbara O'Brien is a professor of Michigan State University College of Law. She's the editor of the National Registry of Exonerations, where she tracks wrongful convictions across the country. I think it can happen to anybody, but it's going to happen the most of the people who are most vulnerable, right? So if you think about right if you are a person of color are more likely to be stopped and frisked. Then a white person, Then you're more likely to be the victim. So you've got all these different forces that are at work, And there any a sort of bias or disadvantage that comes from being a person of color in America is just amplified. The U. S has an incarceration problem, and that problem is much more likely to affect people of color. And this over representation is also present and wrongful convictions. But how bad the problem is, we just don't know, because there's no way to quantify how many innocents people are actually in prison. We don't know what we don't know. We have some hypotheses. We heard it. We have some suspicions. But we can on Lee study the cases that we learn about. I guess the analogy would be if we were trying to understand what causes planes to crash. But we didn't know about all the plane crashes, right? Like how do you figure out what you know What kind of generalized herbal knowledge. Can you pull from it if you don't even know the universe. Of cases. You're dealing with Barbara as that. Prosecutors are under a lot of pressure to close cases, particularly cold cases like that of Leroy After all prosecutors of the ones who have to face the victim's families and their test. We're providing accountability, she says. Many times those mistakes are purely accidental. For the most part, people want to make things right. That's why I see are youse were invented in the first place. They ideally offer a mechanism to address those mistakes to make overturning convictions and easier and faster process. These are really popular with voters. Nobody's in favor of convicting somebody who's innocent, and it's really hard to deny that that has happened. And that's a problem. That isn't just a fluke, right that it's us fairly systemic problem. So I think that elected prosecutors are recognizing that this is something that people can get behind with all of that in mind and hoping that the CR you would be the fastest way to secure Joseph's freedom. Daniel decided to take on Joseph's case pro bono. In this case, it was immediately clear reviewing It's procedural history, the effects of it and everything that had happened. It was clear that it was different, Daniel said. Wrongful convictions are some of the toughest cases to take on. But the lawyer hoped if he could uncover new evidence of Joseph's innocents, that the CR you would agree to take a second look. It was a last ditch effort for Joseph. If the CR You denied his petition, Joseph would spend the rest of his life in prison. Daniel first focused on getting the weapon tested for DNA. Murder weapon was a cinder block. It was by many witness accounts smashed over the victim's head repeatedly and caused his death. It was caked in blood. It was sitting in an evidence locker for many years after Mr Webster's conviction, but no At the time of his trial. Nobody thought toe test it. Neither the district attorney nor Mr Webster's defense team decided to test it for Dina. I can't possibly explain why Joseph Wonder the same thing for many years when he was in prison. So when he learned that Tennessee had a post conviction statute that would allow him to petition the state to go back and test the murder weapon, he taught himself how to do the paperwork. Daniel said Joseph's testing petition was denied. And that's where Joseph Woz when he took on the case. First things first. Daniel, the lawyer, sets out to figure out how to pay the $36,000 they needed to DNI test the murder weapon. $36,000. That's how much it would cost Joseph to test the one item that might prove his innocence nearly impossible for someone representing himself to afford. Joseph said that he felt like he was being punished for being poor and Joseph is not the only one. The criminal legal system is far from blind to affluence. In fact, finances could be a strong barrier to justice. Low income people are disproportionately present in the criminal legal system and wrongful convictions. Again, Barbara O'Brien from the National Registry of Exonerations. People with more resources are going to be in a better position even starts at the very beginning of the process, right like can you make their you know if you're in if you're charged with offenses that allows for pretrial release No, Having the financial means to be free While you're waiting trial that helps you assist with the defense that makes it less likely that you're going to take a plea deal just to end the situation, right? And then there's also there are some public defender's office is in this country that are just absolutely outstanding. They're doing a amazing work. But there's places where counsel for the indigent defendants is sorely under resourced. After an appeal in most states, incarcerated people no longer have access to public defenders, leaving them to manage the rest of their cases on their own. But this time, Joseph was not alone anymore. Daniel now, with approval for Edna testing in hand, set out to secure funding, And it was the Innocents project who finally agreed to foot the bill. While the break was sent off to get tested, Daniel decided he needed to hire an investigator. He hired 10 dire. A recently retired National Police Department. Detective Ken wasn't part of the team that investigators theorize murder, but he had a lot of experience. Right now we're tremble in flavor on.
A 142-Year-Old Science Seed Caper
"So now tell me about this guy william bill. You said he was a botanist. What was the big question. He wanted to answer so it's really kind of a simple question. How long can seeds remain viable underground and you know the local farmers had been asking him if we keep weeding a plot of ground. At what point will the weeds stop coming up. And bill just didn't know how long the seeds of weeds could be in the ground and retain the ability to germany. So how did he try to figure that out. Well he got twenty glass bottles and frank to lucy. Fesser of plant biology at michigan state university. He told me that. Bill filled these bottles very carefully and although twenty bottles filled up with a sandy seat mixture and the sandy seat mixture contains twenty one species of plants with fifty seeds per plant. Now these plants were just common weeds and build buried the bottles in a secret spot on what is now. The campus of michigan state university. His plan was that every five years he dig up a bottle and see what seeds could sprout. Okay more math. So if it's one bottle every five years and they're twenty bottles. That means bill expected experiment to last one hundred years right and you know it's gone on longer than that. Beal dug up a bottle every five years until he retired in nineteen ten then. He passed the experiment onto a colleague who pass it onto a colleague and so on and these caretakers made the experiment last longer than ever intended just by stretching out the time between bottles so they went from one bottle every five years to every ten years and now they dig up a bottle every twenty years. I love how this has been passed on so the last bottle dug up was twenty years ago. Well twenty one. It was dug up in the year. Two thousand that's when frank who ski went out with the previous caretaker to the secret location. Frank became the keeper of the experiment at that time and he was supposed to dig up a bottle in two thousand twenty but you know the coronavirus pandemic right so you

"From the studios in the Communication Arts and Sciences building on the campus of Michigan State University, This is MSU today. Here's Russ wife. Thank you. Lynn Wooderson. In a moment, Spartans athletic Director Bill Beekman talks with the president and chief executive officer of the Michigan State University. Federal Credit Union. April Clovis. I get often asked, Why are you putting a branch up when people don't need branches anymore? There's just something about that physical location that makes you feel connect. Did to your financial institutions that people look for close to their home. Later Bill talks with the general manager of the University club Karen Grantham, in Billa's I mentioned before we're research to as the inclusive explosive club. So yes, we are a private club. Our services are only available to those who join but there are no barriers to joining. This is MSU today and 7 60 wjr here. Spartans Athletic Director Bill Beekman. Come to emit you today are one of our guest today is April Clovis. April is an MSU alum but most importantly, is the president and chief executive officer of the MSU Federal Credit Union. And, uh, in the interest of full disclosure. I I sit on April's board and I have been just so impressed with the credit union over the years that thought that they would make a April would make a wonderful guest in our program today. So, you know, April could you start out by telling us about a little bit about the history of the credit union? How it how it came to be. And its relationship with Michigan State. We began in 1937 s So we're actually celebrating. We just celebrated last week are 83rd anniversary. Andre Credit Union started with faculty and staff. So 1937 just a few years at the end of the recession and the Great Depression. Um we had an opportunity to form co operatives in the United States on ghostly. It was due to the fact that few people of you know, regular modest means could be banked at that time you had toe Teas, and I tell the story. The students, you know, I think everyone thinks faculty or, you know really well paid. But the truth is, you know if they're not among the, you know, country's richest and certainly not in 1937. So credit unions are non profit cooperative where its membership based and how it works is a lot like some of the things that you might see today, like a go fund me, Um individuals needed Tioga alone on back and those days it would be up to $100. And if you need it alone, the founding board members who were all faculty and staff at the University who were volunteers who worked for free would call up Let's say 10 other members and ask those 10 members to bring in $10 and deposit and then the long could be made. Um, and also because of the time it was. It was really small in a small time, you know, for people on campus as well. And so if Bill you came in and needed the loan, and we called 10 people everyone would know it was Bill Beekman, who needed that loan and so you'd feel you know a lot of social pressure toe return the payments back to the credit union. On DSA. That's how we began. And so for the 1st 20 years, the credit union was run entirely by the volunteer board of directors. You mentioned you're on our board and They're all still volunteers today. Aziz. That's the model of a credit union system and show. Then in 1957, the credit union hired its first employee. Her name was Francis. Let's Nesky she Was the credit union's manager at that time, and so she began a czar first employee and stayed at the credit union until 1987 and S. O. Fran has a great history, not only for our organization, but within the industry as a whole as she was very active in the credit union movement and Help the formation of several Lansing area and Michigan area credit unions a swell in April. 1 of the things that some of our listeners who are credit union members may not appreciate is that when you go Online. There's an an ask Fran feature that was actually named in an honor of her. Yes. And so you know, we've come full circle. We have a chat, but s O in the advancement of technology. We're using chatbots to help with questions on our on our website. So if you have a question you can chat with Fran on S O. We named Fran. First Digital employees are digital assistant after our friend our first actual employee. I think that it's so fascinating, and in the time we're currently in with a new international pandemic, that really the credit union fulfills in many ways, the same function. That it did back in 1937 with, you know, essentially a neighbors helping neighbors and and through the pandemic. You've you've kept that culture alive. What kinds of things is the credit union doing uniquely because of the times were in? Yeah, there's a strong parallel to what's happening today in terms of How much unemployment there is in our economy and the challenges for you know our members and all consumers during this, uh, you know, past 89 months. So the credit union son a variety of programs to help. Of course, I think most lenders air trying and you know, most financial institutions are trying To do the right thing by their borrowers s O The credit union has we have extensions? So if you're.
How Biden's Diverse Economic Team May Impact His Policies
"President elect. Joe biden introduced today. His team tasked with rebuilding this devastated economy. Four women including janet yellen his nominee for treasury secretary and three are people of color. Wally will be yellen. Deputy near attendant is his pick for budget director and cecilia. Rouse has been chosen to chair the council of economic advisers but what does the gender and race of the picks saying about what kinds of policies they may put in place. Our next guest has some thoughts on that. She is a communist. Lisa cook and she served as an adviser under president. Obama and she is a professor at michigan state university. her work is focused on the impact. Racism has had on holding back the economy. Good morning good morning so yellen ten rows of work to increase worker earnings and reduce racial and gender discrimination. The economy for example. What does that signify about the priorities of this team. It suggests that the biden team has a really good grasp of what is happening in the economy. Not just in the pandemic konomi but the broader economy and the more long standing Me and that he is made a priority he's he is prioritized The the wellbeing of all americans so interested in the aggregate but in the distribution of income and well being in the economy. That's what it suggests to me. Well you're talking about inequality essentially yes. We mentioned the diversity in these appointments. How much does that matter. It matters a great deal. One of the things Janet yellen has said and certainly said is chair of the federal reserve. The first woman to be so that the financial crisis was actually a result of not having enough Lived experience in this diversity of lived experience of the economist who were judging the data related to the crisis so it says to me that we really need people in positions of economic policymaking who have different types of lived experience you have different backgrounds who understand the data from many different perspectives. So they're maybe trained trained some little but it's group think that can That can impede us from understanding Economic and financial crises so given that she really pushed forward on diversity efforts at the federal reserve when she was a chair and before. That seems to me that this is a really important priority for economic policy-making Let me ask you a bit more about this. You've written about this extensively. That representation matters that teams with women on them for example are more productive that having diverse leadership allows for more creative solutions to problems. But isn't there some sort of magical thinking when we've seen that simply having a black or brown person in a certain job translates automatically to more equality There needs to be systemic change. So what do you see happening there to sort of change. What we've seen so far. I bet you're exactly right. It is not a panacea. It's not a magic formula. Having more representation doesn't automatically mean that however when people have different lived experience Experiences for example. They can say something like well. I remember my aunt getting exotic mortgage for example during the two thousand eight two thousand nine crisis. And what we know is that black and brown People had many of these exotic mortgages and they were canaries in the coal mine. So if you were watching these very closely he's or more high interest and and sort of not really based on solid ground to prime. That's right exactly They would be a canarian coal. My this would be a leading indicator and this would This would give us an indication of what will happen in months or years to come in the economy so different people with different lived. Experiences may be able to say more about The economy and how it's playing out. How different people are experiencing the economy. This pandemic of course is impacted communities of color disproportionately Not only when it comes to health but also economically. What do you think i needs to happen. And just in a few seconds. The thing that i needs to happen is that there has to be greater Relief that comes to state and local governments Come aid that comes to small businesses aid that is not necessarily in the form of debt but the but in the form of Also in the form of grants And i think that for closure and forbearance relief have to happen as well. There's a lot that needs to be done to address the

"And international relations. At Michigan State University. She is a martial scholar who got her PhD in economics at Berkeley. She was a researcher for the Council of Economic Advisers under president Obama. Lisa Cooke, Welcome to Bloomberg. Thank you so much. Very So, Lisa. I have to ask what drove you towards a career in economics. Harry. That's a really good question. I have a couple of days. One is God As I have looked back on and over the last year or so, I think one of the important trip that we took every year with to a place called Seoul City, North Carolina. My cousin employed Miss McKissick, with starting the city from scratch is a protester, along with Martin Luther King in March with him was in the class of 1948 at Morehouse College. Integrated the University of North Carolina, You know, just really active on many different fronts, but he was building a city from scratch. And this is something we saw every summer from one trailer to two trailers to three trailers to a building that house IBM two more buildings, and what he had to do was to essentially plan and economy And I think that that notion is something that really started. Turning the wheel for me. How do you How do you plan an economy and how you try to close the racial wealth gap? This is a multi cultural effort. But the empathy was trying Tio create good jobs, so that The racial welcome would be closed. Now. This is in the sixties and seventies. So that's that's one answer that that's upon a lot of reflection recently, but I would say that At Oxford. When I was trying to decide on one of the three topics I was to study within philosophy, politics and economics, I took this mathematical economics tutorial. It was so much fun is a grad student teaching it and I kept telling myself there cannot be a field Is this much fun? Can't be can't be so I Kept putting it off a climb Kilimanjaro with this Cambridge craved economists and he convinced me that no, I did not go off to jealousy and do pdc and mathematical logic, which is what I was planning. I should dio feed Stevie and economic. So in five hours, he convinced me that this is What I should do. So I think that's the answer to your question. You've done some really fascinating research, and we're going to talk in a few minutes about your research into Patents and innovation. But I have to ask about what led to the op Ed You wrote a couple of years ago in The New York Times where you pointed out that just 0.6% Of economics PhDs were awarded to black women. What was that piece is Genesis and what sort of feedback did it create? There were two sources of that article that op ed. The first was that the A American Economic Association had done a climate survey and I was on the committee to write up the results, and it was astonishing. The kind of common especially that we got from people in the profession. You know, we learned a lot from that. As you can recall. We learned a lot about how widespread Sexual harassment. Wass. We learned that people were not feeling included and economics for various reasons. We knew that way Suspected that promotion and pay we're problem with respect to Minority women, But we didn't know the extent to which that was the case. And certainly we didn't know that African American women were the ones who had to take more steps to avoid discrimination and that they were the ones reporting the most discrimination. So that was worrisome in and of itself, so definitely one of the motivations for writing the bed to talk more about that, and and again, the comments were terrified. One of them let the article if I were to advise my son, I would tell him not to go into economics and I regret having gone into it. The person implied that she was a black woman. There was another comment that really hit home. Ah, why is it that all these prizes are given and no African Americans ever win these prices like Nobel Mean on the day that novellas being awarded like the Nobel How can that be welcoming? How can that be serious? ISS, our researches and being taken seriously. Our careers are being taken seriously on the other motivations. One motivation with the climate study. The other one was as director of the American Economic Association some of program I noticed that there were too many black Lim and I thought, Okay, I know that black women outnumber black men and the 10 feels an undergraduate. So what is going on here? So I certainly put it at the top of my list to try to recruit more black women who apply to the summer program into Teo get them to think more seriously about Doing a PhD in economics, and this was the way to do it. So I had those two sources that led to that Ah bed and with respect to the reaction The reaction has has largely I would say. Been good. In the sense that it got a conversation started. When you see the results from the climate survey from 9000 respondents we see a pattern and we see a pattern with respect to pay promotion.

Tell us what they're protesting, or what the advocating for So the graduate employee organization orgy EO represents about 2000 grad student instructors They've been striking since last week.

I talked with a mere Fleischman He's a graduate student who teaches political theory. He was out on the picket lines this morning at 5 A.m., he said. They felt like they tried everything to get the attention of the university and it didn't work. We've held protests we held it died. We've had car caravan. It's been an impact bargaining for months. This has gotten us nowhere. We felt that we had no other option but to engage in strike. And Eliza. What do university Michigan officials have to say about all this? We'll yesterday the U of M President Mark Schlissel, ask the courts to intervene and send the grad students backto work. It's illegal in the state of Michigan for education workers to strike and that ruling is expected by the end of the week. Student workers say. Until then, they'll continue to be on the picket lines. All right, So the University of Michigan has thousands of students living in dorms and taking in person classes. But just north of there is Michigan State in East Lansing, which is all online. Tell us more what's happening there. So at Michigan State University. There's been a big jump in cases since some students returned to the town last month, and that's despite the fact that they're not taking any classes in person this weekend, the university as students living in town to quarantine for two weeks to help curb the spread. I've been keeping in touch with an MSU freshman named Sidney Harakah Veena. She's living in an off campus apartment with her roommates. I called yesterday to ask her about the lock down, and instead she told me that she herself had just tested positive for Corona virus. I was trying to be safe. My roommates were trying to be safe like we kind of avoided like the bigger scenes like I wouldn't want to go somewhere where I could get it. But like even my remains friends, they don't abide by that. And now it really just like, bit them and us in the butt because we hung out with them, and then they had it. So it really was a chain effect. All of her roommates are also positive, though none of them have symptoms, and the three of them are isolating in their apartment. She told me she's already feeling a little restless eye, but they are so how do these two schools fit into what you're hearing across the country in your reporting? Well what colleges air. Finding all over the country is that all it takes is a small all group of students going to parties for the virus to really start making its way through social circles and into the surrounding community. You know, The other thing is the high positive cases in East Lansing show us that colleges don't actually have that much control over this as they might like right because classes are already online there, So I think it's an important lesson for schools that have in person classes because it shows there really aren't that many good options.

'Astonishingly risky': COVID-19 cases at colleges are fueling the nation's hottest outbreaks
"New cases averaging 34,000 Day, which is a decline of roughly 18%. Over two weeks. College campuses continue to be a challenge, though here, CBS's David beg No. It was another weekend of parties around colleges and universities. Young people gathered in Washington Square Park near New York University. For the second consecutive weekends. Thiss crowded House Party took place near the University of Kansas Video of a party near Florida State University shows very few people wearing masks, according to a New York Times survey of more than 1600 schools. Colleges and universities recorded more than 36,000 Corona virus cases in just the last week. An outbreak at Michigan State University as county health officials urging all students to self quarantine for 14 days, But not everyone is convinced that that plan is going to work long term. Eventually, most people are going to get it. And that is exactly what worries infectious disease experts like Dr Michael Foster home with the colleges and universities, openings with the spillover that's occurring with people experience. Even more pandemic fatigue. We're going to see these numbers grow substantially. This morning. There are encouraging signs on the vaccine front.

Egg Prices Skyrocket During The Pandemic
"It egg gree GIs or just good egg economics. The price of eggs skyrocketed during the pandemic, and now some states are suing AEG companies for price gouging Stacy Vanik, Smith and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics podcast, the indicator from Planet money, tell us exactly what's going on with egg prices. We eat a lot of eggs in this country. The average American eats almost an egg a day and during the pandemic, we really got excited about eggs. Grocery stores were ordering six times more eggs than normal and a lot of store shelves were still empty. Yes, so demand for eggs went crazy and the supply could not increase right away because there are only so many egg laying hens in the US and you know that in prison, a man will lead to a rise in prices. That is David Ortega. He is a food economist at Michigan State University, and David says it's all about supply and demand. A spike in demand, plus a fixed supply pushes up the price. And the price went way up nearly 200% in March, and now a bunch of states have responded by suing AEG companies for price gouging. Thes states included Texas, West Virginia in Minnesota, and they also included New York, where the attorney general accused egg company Hillandale Farms of taking in $4 million in revenues from overcharging people for eggs and with egg prices. Here is where things get tricky. I mean, Did eight companies commit a crime by charging more for eggs. Were they just being good free market citizens? Also challenging really happens when you purposefully set the price of a commodity, you know, significantly above the traditional price level that incorporates costs and other forces, David says. Part of the issue here is that costs went up for eight companies to labor transports. Supplies were all hard to get and often expensive in the early days of the pandemic, But did those costs go up? By three or 400%, like their prices did that is the question being hashed out in courts now, and it's kind of complicated and part of the issue. Here, of course, is the egg itself, right? I mean, if I scream prices or caviar prices or wine prices or something like that went up by 200%. It probably wouldn't be a legal issue a price gouging accusation. But the idea here is that eggs are a staple in a stable that really vulnerable people count on, especially in a crisis, and this idea that companies were profiting off of vulnerable people in time of crisis makes it seem kind of wrong, David says. It's especially tricky here because there was a time when pretty much all food prices were going up. In fact, between March and April, food prices saw their biggest jump in 46 years. But you know it's really difficult to draw the line as to what is a appropriate price response due to the shock versus what isthe sort of This type of illicit behavior that's trying to take advantage of the situation, David says. We will have to see what the courts decide about egg prices and whether it was price gouging or just, you know, faire economics or maybe unfair but legal economics. Stacy Vanek, Smith.

"Just a follow up a little bit. With some more statistics about police. Public interactions at officer involved shootings. The most recent police public contact survey. From the Bureau of Justice Statistics was released in 2018. It logged millions and millions and millions of police encounters. There are 253.5 million people above the age of 16 in the United States. 53.4 million had contact with police and in 2015, the most recent year for which data is available. Just 995 people were killed that 0.18%. Of the 53.4 million who had contact with police. Just 985,000 reported experiencing non fatal threats or use of force from officers. That's 1.8%. Of police encounters even among police encounters in which there was a threat or the use of force. 985,000 of them. The 995 people killed represents just 0.1%. Of those Encounters. There has been an average of about 1000 give or take. Police shootings, deadly police shootings every year. Those would represent 0.26% of all police encounters by the way. What do you think the chances of getting struck by lightning at some point in your lifetime? 0.33% or Excuse me 0.33%. In other words, you're much more likely to get struck by lightning. Than to be shot and killed by a police officer. Faculty at Michigan State University and the University of Maryland College Park created a database of 917 officer involved fatal shootings from 2015. This is the only major study that's ever been done of police shootings. It was published last year in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It found 55%. Of the deadly shootings. Are white people. 27 were black 19% were Hispanic between 90 and 95% of the civilians shot by officers in 2015 were attacking police or other citizens. 90% were armed with a weapon. In terms of the people who were not Armed or attacking somebody actively attacking The others were charging at officers with fists raised or doing something that would potentially makes them a threat to the office or or somebody else. Involved. Far more than 99% of police encounters are not violent, far more than 99.9%. Are not deadly. And in fact, the only factor another study. I believe this was the same one the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the on ly determinant of who is more likely to be killed? By a police officer is not race but is contact with police. You have more contact with police, you're more likely to be killed by a police officer. That's just common sense. There is, in fact, no evidence, this study concluded none. None that there is racial bias on the part of police officers in the killing of black men. There's just the evidence just does not support this idea that they're systemic racism in law enforcement. Once again, though, we allow the narrative to take hold. We allow reactions. Teo bubble up before any of the facts are actually known, and the suggestion that Hi or any other talk show host have a knee jerk defense of police. I guess the flipside of that question would be. Why is there a knee jerk assumption that police officers did something wrong? And why is there an attempt to justify the response to that knee jerk reaction which, by the way, is often times disproven In the case of Dontre Hamilton In the case of Seville, Smith, there was an actual riot in Milwaukee. Where businesses burned to the ground in Sherman Park. Turns out the shooting was completely justified. Seville, Smith pointed a gun at the officers who are chasing him. The initial narrative, the knee jerk reaction was wrong. So why does that knee jerk reaction exist? And now why is there an automatic defence of rioting? Why is there automatically a defensive targeting innocent people who had nothing to do with the shooting of Jacob Lake? Nothing. Their businesses are destroyed. Why? Because someone else is upset about something. I'm upset about Tony Evers tweets last night. Basically justifying the rioting and calling police officers who served the people of his state murderers. I'm mad about that. Would I get to go out and smash my producer's car in the parking lot? Because of that wood? My anger be justified. Of course not. Would I be able to target an innocent person? For property destruction or even violence, even physical violence. Why is it tolerated in the context of a response to a police shooting? Why is it acceptable? Why this summer? Have we seen cities.

"Don't know but they did borrow it and they did pay me back and it might have just been my dad's seeing an opportunity to teach me about interest but I- beamed with importance and significance. I remember on that day feeling like my whole life in the role that I played in this family had changed even as I think back on it. It's like I can feel the alchemy. Something shifted in me. That day I felt so important I felt so relevant I felt so needed and in it I formed this belief that that's what made me significant my ability to take care of people financially my ability to have money. I knew it was a big deal then. My parents were borrowing money from me and even though it might not be true in my head. I formed this belief that I was keeping the family afloat that it was me who saving the family. And from that day forward everything about the way I viewed success and money and accomplishments changed and I viewed the world. Through those lenses. I looked for ways to prove my belief if I was praised or people complimented for anything. I didn't hear those compliments. I didn't believe those compliments but the ones I looked for it and the ones I sought after the ones that felt so important to me. Were the ones related to making money and in particular making money to take care of other people by age. Fifteen hours already figuring out how I could afford my own college. I never asked my parents for lunch money again after that happened and I was in middle school. I never asked him for a dollar after that because I had guilt. But because I had pride that I could provide for others I could provide for myself and eventually I started flipping cars and entering into business and finding myself more obsessed with working than I did anything else. That's why every sport that I started. I usually would quit because it wouldn't allow me to spend enough hours at work. I worked retail network marketing. I knocked on doors. I sold newspapers over the phone. Anything that I could do any part time job that I could have in any small business that I could develop simultaneously. I did that and I like to think that I did it from Dr but really ultimately eventually after going to therapy. I learned that I was doing it because it was the only thing I thought that made me valuable. And when I looked for evidence of that I could find it and if I couldn't find it I would create it whatever I needed to do to validate that belief. I did it including and through the I pretty much ten years of my marriage. When I met my husband I was twenty one. He was twenty. We're at Michigan State University. And at that point I already had. Three jobs was working as a paralegal and also a fulltime student and also running my own business. I was a baller and I thought that's what he was. Attracted to was my ability to make money to provide for not just myself but for others. I remember on his twenty first birthday. I rented a huge limousine purchased all the alcohol for the Party for him and all of his friends and my friends and just always paid for everything and it wasn't as though that came easy it meant a lot of sacrifice admit. I never had time to rest meant that I could never just be student. I had always be thinking about the next move my next job my next promotion my next business my next thing because I had to make more money. Because if I wasn't making more money will then I would be less valuable and I. I just carried this theme in my mind forward into years of our marriage life and never feeling satisfied and never being told that that's why I was valuable but the irony is that the more you make the more you realize you have to make after that. 'cause you're only as good as your last hit you know if you take your friends and family members on a fancy vacation will. The next vacation has to outdo that. And if you're buying a nice car this year will then the car you by next year has to be better than that and if the check you've made this month is really impressive. Will then the check after that has to be even bigger? Which leaves you feeling forever unfulfilled. There was never any time to celebrate any wins or to congratulate myself on a job. Well done there was no time. I had to do more and more and.

"Old age this is what I've heard and it says in this research that at Michigan State University concluded that as an individual grows old with a happy life partner they will see the risk of developing dementia cognitive decline or Alzheimer's disease steadily declining it's as we spend a lot of time with our partners and they might encourage us to exercise with this true a positive life partner will help you not get on your **** and stay there get you off your **** get you out into the world eat healthier and when your partner is optimistic and healthy it translates into similar outcomes in your own life and I think that that's really important I really think that's important because man was not meant to be alone and my wife does it for me I have to tell you because my wife is incredibly beautiful and so she's very motivating and that way my wife motivates me in a good way and both of us are actually quite young at heart and that we like to enjoy life and laugh and exercise and do the things that are good for us and eat properly and so I'm very grateful that god has given me a positive life partner but if you don't have one now you got a problem so instead of twenty three minutes and how you got twenty three or thirty three or forty three years in hell and what you gonna do about it that's the question what are you going to do about it well the answer is the only thing that you can actually do when you're with a not so positive partner is change yourself and that can be even super difficult because guess what people resist change the ship kind of people that once there the way they are they don't want to see any change at all they want to maintain the status quo whatever that means and so be warned be warned don't hate that person because that hate will make you sick hating somebody is like taking poison and expecting it to kill the other person there really is and the truth is that you've got to stop right now step back for a moment say what can I do and what you can do may not be what you will do but what you can do is stop and break with the old and begin a new cycle a new cycle of meditating meditating actually is very important because it resets you I am a put it this way if you've been running or if you've been walking a long distance or if you've been awake for a long time the good lord has given a certain resets that are natural and then innocence imposed on us we can't live without sleeping we can't you'll die if you don't sleep but some people never stop they never stop whether it's running or working or sleeping some people never wake up but you can't live without waking up either so some people do you get to that space where they begin to reset enter in a right way and sleep as a side effect of letting go good sleep and a good life is a side effect of letting go I am sometimes when I talk with Alan about this topic I say people carry around what I thought of as a few years ago I I realize it was a bag of bricks every time you take something with you that you could leave behind a bad memory a bad reaction to something you got a a suitcase full of bricks and you just keep putting those bricks in that suitcase and dragging it around with you as if it was absolutely important does he couldn't live without it they think about what I'm saying the suitcase full of bricks you've got one you may have two or three or doesn't and the question is do you need those bricks each one of them has an experience kind of written on it anger with him anger with her frustration with this frustration with that whatever all those bricks in a suitcase and the fact is that when you're living in the moment you don't need all the garbage all the leftovers you ever see these programs on people who are hoarders they live in these houses full of junk crap and they actually collect things that nobody else even cares about old newspapers and magazines and chunk and yet you want to use of what is wrong with that person's mind what's wrong with their soul well the answer is they're empty people and they need things to make them feel like their life has meaning so they begin to collect these things that don't matter it's a compulsion to try to you know failure your whole life up with meaningless junk but it's all they know to do and yes they have these people go in and they help them clean out their houses a year of everything and they go back to having like a what you call a normal living environment but there's just the basic stuff in there which is all anybody ever needs anyway but we are experiencing orders I somehow we think that those memories and those connections to those moments in time are all equally valuable and the fact is they're not it's a matter of fact moment in time and I actually have a article here was gonna read anyway so go into this this is the meaning of memories how we experience the world depends upon how we remember the past so it's it's I'm not gonna be a lot of it is most of our experiences in life are fabricated from earlier memories a new study finds but researchers say how we perceive and respond to each experience depends on how well we can recall even the most trivial aspects of those memories the study conducted by researchers from Washington university found that change detection plays a large role in how we construct reality well we may not be able to change events in our past we remember them well or not so well and that memory greatly affects our brains frame the events happening in the present interesting and again what are the hoarders what about them the memory quarters sometimes I see things going through my mind and I'm aware of those thoughts and those memories and I'm thinking to myself what on earth is that for it happened to me pretty much all day long everyday I'm watching the content of my mind and I'm questioning why is that there it could be word to could be phrases that could be music a could be a memory of something

Thanks to this audience for putting up with this for as long as you did if you're in care to send a card just send it to the station with your prayers and thoughts beaten half this thing. Docs, William little rest happy new year. I'll be back the John McCullough show weekday evenings at six on the patriot. Let's return live to the breslin center on the campus of Michigan State University. And we're back here at Michigan State University breslin student events center or the TSA state semi final between you digest with cubs and oca- most chiefs Oklahoma just down the road here for me slanting. So Steve is the two teams out here. Doing layup lines warming up. You know, we've talked a lot about you. We talked about them on Tuesday. We've given them some airtime here. Give us a little insight to what Okamoto's brings in store today. Well, Oklahoma's twenty three and two on the season twelve in their division ranked number two in the state. I'm max preps as you said in the last segment number one sixty three in the nation. They're averaging fifty five points per game their last state championship as we said was in nine hundred eighty two they won the year before also in nineteen ninety one to give themselves the back to back for their last finals appearance was in two thousand six which they lost eighty five to eighty four in double overtime to Saginaw Arthur hill in Brennan, you got some some interesting facts about that with your understood that well yet that game back in two thousand six was the last time that there has been an overtime game. State final ever since. Then every game has been finished in regulation. And ever since then the average margin of victory. So and the twelve games played since then only four games were won by single digits. The average margin of victory in those twelve games is fifteen point three points. If you take out the four single digit games, it's twenty one and a half points. So I mean, you know, it's not exactly close games. We've had in the past decade or so almost over a decade. You know in the state final. So I mean, I mean, we know some people talked about rankings and stop maybe MHSAA should rank the playoffs in districts and stuff like that. I mean, how do you feel about that raise? The question is how are we gonna make sure that the two best teams in the state of the two most deserving teams getting finals could also you look at the teams early in the playoffs who are upsetting these big programs, and you have to give him the credit. They won those games. They want them fair and square but teams with easy road to the finals. It's really not. It's really not respecting teams who have the hard road to get there. And then just have a blowout win in the final. Even even you d in their undefeated season in two thousand sixteen almost too easy game in that final. Yeah. Definitely. I mean, they won that game by twenty points back in two thousand sixteen we saw last year Clarkston be column west Ottawa by forty three points. I mean, that's that's just despicable that a a state finals game would be a forty three point margin of victory in. I mean even this year Detroit renaissance and their first playoff game played. In the district. Quarterfinal loss Detroit renaissance is a very good basketball team. They're a top ten team in the state of Michigan. They've got Chandler Turner. Who's gonna play D one basketball, bowling green? I mean, I'd be very upset. If I was renaissance and you had to play the number one team in the state being UB, even if we had a bye in the dish. It gives a very serious advantage to teams who have a relatively weak road to the quarter or semi finals gives them a very serious advantage in getting those games getting the bras and center building up the heightened building up the prestige of their program versus teams that have to play the best guys in the states. So early on in aren't really getting the respect that they deserve throughout their entire season. And it's not even necessarily a lot of people think that it's you know, these far out teams like oh, KOMO in Howell Lincoln had the easy roads. But it's it's it's right here in our neighborhoods. We saw last year Warren dealers out give them credit. They were very good basketball team. They had a lot of strong players on there. And they did the work that they needed to in the quarterfinal in beating the cubs last year at Callahan hall. Book before that the highest ranked team that deals south played prior to their match against the cubs in the quarterfinal. It wasn't the comb Dakota who is ranked ninety ninth in the state teams are still warming up here at the present center, again, thank you for joining us on his pre-game show Brennan, why do you want us through the last three games that the cubs are going to face against today? Yes. So the cubs back in the regional semi they beat their Catholic League match up rival de LA Salle sixty four fifty one win that game by thirteen points. They went they then went on to take on Grosse Pointe north in the regional final and one that one by twenty and then Stephen we saw it on Tuesday the state quarter verse Rosedale ninety one to fifty four. The cubs are just doing everything right right now, they're playing very good basketball. I think if you look at the numbers, and he's on paper, and you take the eye test to me, they just looked like the best team left, and what about Oklahoma wrote us through their last three games. So Oklahoma regionals regional semi took on cold water and win that game by elevens or forty four to thirty three other then went on and only had a five point. Win over DeWitt in the regional final. And then again on Tuesday in grand Blanc in the state quarterfinal. They came away with a big win against east Kent would when he met gained fifty to forty five the most skating by recently. But you know, they are hearing the breslin and say anything can happen. That's why we play the game. Yeah. That low score in the regional final. Really catches my eye only putting up thirty nine points, whereas cups had two players total in their gaming. It's Roseville that scored forty points, which is more than than than Oklahoma's had never mentioned east Kenwood victory. And what I want to talk about a few players oak. Miss had obviously their.

"And I met the woman who probably picked it that morning and we are luckily Victor. Yeah, no, we, we are lucky that we have. We have those opportunities. The other is to put more money into, you know, in this could be done by the farm Bill into research on ways that we can produce food. So the way that you know, and this is talked about a lot, but the way that we produce meat right now is very harmful to the environment in his actual overall, the food supplies contributing thirty percent of total greenhouse gases. And a lot of that is from me, Michigan State University is doing research on. Intensive grazing of meat because there's some parts of our country that actually the best use of it is grazing land for me and truthfully, meat that is grazed is healthier for us. And what they found is if you have the right mix of plants for the for the cows to eat and you intensively move them around, basically when cows eat a plan and I, this is new to me when cows eat a plant, they eat off part of it that kills part of the roots when the roots die. It actually sends greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. So if you move them around enough, they're only eating off the tops in. They're not eating it all the way down that that tricks the plants into not killing any the roots because they can grow fast enough to recover that. So they have actually found ways to produce cows that are actually end up absorbing more carbon. Even though the cows are still belching and still farting and letting off methane, but the plants are actually absorbing more carbon than the cows are letting off because of what, what, what kind of plants they have and how intensively they're moving them. Around regenerate agriculture, and we had a show a whole show on this with rhino. Guajardo talked about his book kissed the ground he helped with which is about how we need to rethink soil animal husbandry in the right way, which everybody knows in the wrong way is gonna cause climate change.

"It's check it out. Yeah. Do you wanna go onto Morgan news please, but let's talk about Michigan state and away this off season that has nothing to do with life because it's not a good offseason is not Michigan State University, not been a great PR campaign for Michigan State University this off season. No, it's been really bad and we are going to talk about Michigan state football because they're in the division and they should win a bunch of games. So. Okay, ninety three year ago, Dan, I think this this is setting up to be really bad year to have that Michigan state football disrespect. I'm ready to disrespect them. Let's go. I think they're loaded this year, Dan. Okay. I think the are loaded Mark. Dantonio has nineteen guys back starters back from a year ago. Basically the entire team that won nine games last year, correct. And I think it's a better schedule than a year ago. The first reason that I care is because Brian Lewinsky's a ton of fun to watch. He's terrifying to play against. He's different than what you're used to seeing a quarterback Michigan state. Connor cook was great. He's all time leading passer, Kirk cousins, had blue eyes, deep like the, yes, he, this do can thank through the archives. Dan. You could find a long list of really solid Michigan state quarterbacks who were effectively statues in the pocket, correct will work. You can run. He can run. He ran last year. He had the most total yards as a sophomore in school history. Last season debt used to box scores, or he's got ten to fifteen carries a game, and I'm telling you if you're watching a game, if your team's playing against him, get ready to be terrified because he's slippery one. He is a slippery one back in that pocket. He was, he was quite efficient last year, didn't go down field a ton in the way that perhaps Connor cook and Kirk cousins in their better games did. But with what he's surrounded by Felton Davis has been very good LJ Scott, not where previous Michigan state the running backs of really good Spartan teams have been my, that's that's fair. But with that defense with the experience, accuracy will say at quarterback. There is my one problem is, and this is something that I was looking at the the advanced at profile in football study hall from Michigan state is, and this is the meanest thing I can possibly say is they were Lloyd Carr levels of predictable. I'm sorry. I don't. I have a lot. I am. You know, my my brother-in-law is married to a Michigan state Spartan. My wife's cousin is a Michigan state sparked. There's a lot of Sparty in my life, and I apologize that defense is going to be great. Defense is so good on all three levels chose. I Scott is ridiculous. Cari Willis, this is going to be a, I said it earlier top. Eleven twelve defense in the country if not higher. But they discount points they do. I think they will. Okay. I feel pretty good about that, but let's talk about their defense. Okay. Okay. Nine starters back their defensive backfield much like their counterparts in Ann Arbor will be among the best in the country. They're also bringing back Joe botchy and I know you didn't say his name. I wanna workshop botchy ball here as a thing that we can go with about Michigan state's defense now for the duration of the two thousand eighteen season. Okay. How do you feel about calling it? Botchy ball. Why? Exactly? Joe botchy he had. He had one hundred tackles last year. I think it's low hanging fruit. I know it's maybe a little easy, but botchy ball, Dan, how do we feel about botchy ball. I am a fan of the sports. They have it at a lot of bars here in New York as a nickname, I I'm willing to let it grow grow into it. Thank you. That means a lot to me. Thank you. Yeah. All right..
