I. meantime says there is currently no specific or credible threats to Boston. conveys gunmaker poll says it to spending its civilian rifle production to concentrate on military and police contracts as we've been reporting on New Jersey man in federal custody charged with scouting terror attack locations inside the U. S. several of those locations right here here in Boston Alexei saw above Morristown charge today in a Manhattan courtroom shortly after the suspect's appearance in court we spoke with the executive director of the program on homeland security at Middlesex community college attorney Terry downs first of all it soon from a legal point of view it's an interesting complaint that the nine count complaint they should know the first four counts they have to do with providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and receiving military type training firm make designated foreign terrorist organization and the last five contests to do with allegations of fraud and attempted to defraud the federal government in reference to naturalization marriage fraud conspiracy and and failing to reveal his own terrorist training before he ever applied for naturalization and of course that would be grounds crew that that could be grounds for him to be stripped of his natural life of his naturalization status and he'd lose his American citizenship he allegedly was targeting well known landmarks in New York City the George Washington bridge the statue of liberty Empire State Building and in Boston Fenway Park the pro and Sandel hall it appears that that he was acting as a scout for Hezbollah or some other terrorist organization to try to see what the status of those landmarks are and whether or not they might have had some structural instability so would make them easy targets. and if they told them what would be you know the best way to attack those targets to try to do damage some more or to work to bring them down of course the very active attacking one of those landmarks with itself cause enormous publicity and and that's a lot of what has below another terrorist organizations trying to accomplish if they can destroy them they're they're very happy but if they can't the fact that they've managed to attack them in their mind he is a success and self down setting while it's not a surprise the terrorist groups are actively plotting attacks against the United States the details in this indictment are very sobering obviously this of this sort of thing is exactly what terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and isis and others are trying very hard to get here and to to on their behalf whether or not he was formally officially a a scout for them remains to be seen you know it's always possible he was doing these things on his own and was going to try to get the information over to them but when you read the the actual complaints from the Southern District of New York the FBI has interviewed him quite extensively and he's provided an awful lot of detail about his background and what he did what he was trying to do so there's a wealth of information the tape obtained from him they may have gotten more from him that would not be contained in the complaint and it is a very sobering example of the kinds of things the terrorist organizations to try to accomplish in our country and and the rest of the the western world if you will try to see if they can cause us trouble and. kill innocent people and and bring down high value Amos targets all in the name of a of a very twisted way of looking at the world. I'm a little bit surprised that Hezbollah is operating this way inside the United States because they typically do not to that but here the allegation is that he is a member of Hezbollah and of course Hezbollah and ISIS compete with each other to see who can get them the more it's here and it's within the world of terrorism and we can within the world of radical Islam court documents say the suspect has spent the past twenty two years training wetlands scouting terror attack locations providing Hezbollah with intelligence and pictures meanwhile law enforcement agencies here in the Commonwealth including state police and the F.

A both these gentlemen, had regular reoccurring responsibility. With the Johnson, and I'll have dean BAC one day. Everybody you going on again. Yes. I'll have dean on again. I've got a lot of responsibility making you the BC hardy happy now. I know let me have you give it right now. What is your Email address, Terry? Well, I'm I work at Middlesex community college. I run two programs their program on homeland security and also program the supplies mediation services to courts in civil cases. My Email address. There is downs. Like. Up and down DO W E S T for Terry at Middlesex dot M. A S S dot E D U for education what campus because there are three major campuses for Middlesex. Yeah. This is campus in downtown Lowell and a beautiful suburban campus in Bedford right off route three. So so that's what we operate. They're both. It's one college operating on two campuses, the campuses work seamlessly with each other. And we've got a lot of programs going on both degree and non degree granting programs. It's it's a great place to be very active in vibrant place. I love being there. I don't know. If whatever's in charge of student activities would no, but I did right, right. Trivia, stick at both campuses. And they used to be a third campus. Yes, I worked doing trivia at all three campuses. Maybe going back to the early mid two thousand two thousand three four five six. Yep. And. Crow speak to that person in student activities. And see if they remember me, I will I will do that. It'd be great to have you come back up. Okay. Maybe we can work that out if that works for you. You've got my phone number. So yes, they do. And I'll talk to those affected those folks next week and and put that up for out there. And and see if they would like to have a discussion with you. I think that'd be a great thing to me. No student activity. Yeah. I'll certainly talk to them. I appreciate that. Give people your background. How you went from a freshman in high school to where you are now. Well, I grew up in Cambridge and went to BC high from PC high went to Harvard while the Harvard, I got interested in the criminal Justice system. I did a lot of studying of it. I did work with as an exemplary police officer and the researcher or at the Cambridge police department and then worked my way through Suffolk law squall as a stocking on the MIT police and followed that by time in the Middlesex district attorney's office, and then went to work for the court system. So I've been involved in the criminal Justice system and public safety in one way or another since the early nineteen seventies. When. They left the court system. I did some work with a think tank down in DC that it some homeland security work for the federal government, even before the web homeland security was formerly in existence and eventually ended up working at Middlesex community, college setting up a a homeland security program that works with public safety, agencies and other government entities to help. Bring information about homeland security and emergency management to I respond to regencies at the state and local level. So so that's that's how how I got to worry and one change in highschool and your career could have garden entirely different direction. Oh, yeah. Yep. There a threshold there a threshold dates there a threshold events. I remember particularly in college. I I was in. A course that was a just not what I was hoping that it would be it was frankly, it was a hard thing. Foreign course, and I did something I never did. Which was I left a lecture early and watch into Harvard square. And I saw people walking up to there was a cop on the corner. And there was a steady stream of people walking up to them. And obviously they were asking questions looking for direction who knows what they were asking them. But I it just occurred to me there's somebody who's having a real impact on people's lives all day every day. And I started getting very interested in what police did in reality twenty four seven, and that was the that was the one single of event the really got me interested in what are these people do for a living? What's the impact they have on the community? What's their interaction? Like, what are the challenges that they face? And and it's been a very interesting career ever since I hand on the tenant Bruce apothecary. I have him on three or four times a year. And if you do I hear him with you, he's great. He's fantastic. And he was just two or three weeks ago. And it was a new story. And I put it to him to get his reaction. And I'm going to ask you because with homeland security. This is something that could fall under your observation. MS thirteen the Latin gang. World Y tentacles. They are everywhere around the world. Right. And this was a new story. Beck in late February early March that they're now going to start to. Because you mentioned police, and that's what made me think of this. They went to try and intimidate New York City police because that's with a stern got into germ of start by attacking off duty police officers and attack. Off duty police officers had you heard about this. Yes. I did hear about that. And it's a very disturbing story. Yes. They they they do say they want to find out where they live. They wanna find out who their family who their relatives are. And and they want to start intimidating them in that way. Now, I'm not aware of any circumstances. As yet, the you know of any particular situations where that's already occurred. Yes. But they has been intelligence from as they as they say usually reliable sources that would indicate that danger. And of course, they would like to start the place like New York City because if they can get a reputation of causing problems to them than they MS thirteen with. Think that that was a good thing. Of course, what they don't count on is the reaction of every police officer Lauren forcement agency in the country reacting in in a very determined manner to that kind of information, that's the kind of thing I think that would badly backfire on MS thirteen they could cause individuals trouble. No question about that. But they think that that the average police officer or police department is going to be intimidated by that buckle under to that. They clearly don't. Yeah. They clearly don't understand American cops. If that's what they think. So the key is. Talk all you want. But if you take one step towards what you're saying. You'll be sorry. You made that choice now. All right. It's it's our holder. I've got a break to take can pick up short when we come back from the breaking in roughly five seconds this very point. But for right now is a nice man from CBS news with news for everybody. By one day after announcing that he's running for president in twenty twenty. He also said a record correspondent, Ed O'Keefe fighting's campaign said it raised six point three million dollars in its first twenty four hours from nearly ninety seven thousand people in all fifty states. That's the new one day record topping fellow democratic contenders bet to overwork and Bernie Sanders side, Nelson gave his first television interview to the ladies of the view on ABC and was grilled about his treatment of Anita hill in nineteen Ninety-one during the Clarence Thomas Thomas hearings. I'm sorry. She was treated the way she was treated co host joy Behar pushed back I think she wants to say I'm sorry for the way. I tweeted you CBS news political analyst, Larry Sabato, what's amazing about this. Is that Joe Biden has had decades to get this problem solved or at least to deliver an apology or to CBS news update. I'm Matt.

"Taking your medications? Those questions are all normal. It's also apparently normal. For us to fifth when we answer them. The two separate studies with a combined total of about forty five hundred people and in one study it was sixty one percent. And then the other city was eighty one percent withheld at least one of these seven types of information. That's doctor Andrea Gherman can Levy associate professor of psychology at Middlesex community, college in Middletown, Connecticut, she's first author of a pair of studies looking at how often people are less than truthful in response to their doctors questions. We didn't specifically ask about lion. I because we thought people would be less likely to admit to it. If we use such a strong word in second because we weren't just interested in omissions. We're interested in omission. So even if they were kinda passively not offering information but doing so deliberately that seems important to so we can't. Stay that sixty one percent and eighty one percent of people lie all we can say that they're withholding these particular types of information, of course, has some overlap with explicitly lie. So in other words, people are often stretching the truth. Maybe we say we exercise more than we really do or drink less than we really do know people reported withholding from their healthcare provider information such as having an unhealthy diet, not exercising taking a certain medication even taking someone else's prescription. Medication? And when we asked them why they did this the reasons the team up the most toward that they did not want to be judged. They didn't wanna hear how bad the behavior in question was for them. And that they were embarrassed. Most of them said they didn't wanna be judged. They didn't want to get lectured those types of things, and there was also some little interesting things people were embarrassed by things or they didn't want to be difficult or they didn't want to waste the doctor's time. So you can understand why somebody might choose not to give our fully disclose everything. That's Dr Marcella Moffett professor of medicine at the university of Arizona college of medicine, Phoenix. She's also director of the doctoring curriculum, which among other things teaches medical students how to get patients to open up and share everything doctor really needs to know. She says that the study of patients shows that some are more likely to withhold information than others, women younger people and those in worse health. Are more likely to stretch the truth patients are also more likely to omit information if the doctor is young and male. So you can imagine a young woman seeing a young male doc not wanting him to know, maybe that I engage in stuff. That's probably you know, harmful to me. But I know maybe that I'm smoking or drinking too much or maybe using drugs, or whatever it's just you could see that angle there. I mean that I don't wanna be judge or I want you to think the best of me. And I think as human beings, I think that's really what we want. I mean, we all have mask that we're projecting that everything is perfect. I mean, look at Facebook. So it's just I think it is a little bit more pervasive. Now, he would even without a medicine. So I could see why that is we know that people tend to withhold information from others. And we know that this is a specially true when it comes to sensitive information and a lot of what doctors patients have to talk about can be pretty uncomfortable. So it can be hard. Tell your doctor some things especially because as patients we want our doctors to like them. We don't want to be in Paris don't wanna feel judged. Some patients may not want to admit things that could get them in trouble. If their spouse found out, so if a patient really doesn't trust that their doctors going to keep things confidential the doctor may not find out that for example, the patients at a high risk of a sexually transmitted disease. That is the reason that we asked about and that did come up with specifically asked about concerns about the information in question being in their medical record, which of course, has the potential to be shared with others. Then some people did say that that was a factor. But that was not among the most common, but doctors are not always blameless if their patients Doda level with them mosit- says the fear they'll be judged or lectured is legitimate in my own life as having been on the other side of the bed as a patient. Yeah. I'm gonna say. Doc in general, don't have great bedside manner. And I think maybe that's what inspired me to do. What I'm doing in that there's a better way to do this. If a doctor ask a leading question, for example, you don't smoke. Do you? Even the judgment in my voice when I said it so it's how we asked the question. So student would get dinged in. My course, if they ask any leading question, or it could even be what we call stack question where I may ask three questions in a row and typically most patients aren't going to be able to hold the first one in their head to the answer the last one. So it's not like they're even on purpose doing it. I think that we as physicians need to take some responsibility in this is that we may ask leading questions, we may ask questions, and so patients are going to respond in the way, they think we want to hear it. But obviously that carries consequences Gherman can Levy says when we fifth to the doctor. It's not always a harmless little white lie. Maybe patients would be more forthcoming if they knew that so important for clinicians to get accurate information from their patients so that they can make accurate diagnosis. And so that they can make appropriate recommendations there's. Some real consequences arise when patients don't fully disclose relevant medically relevant information or withhold medically relevant information on it can have very real consequences for patient's, medical care and ultimately their health. So for instance, if a patient neglects to mention or deliberately withhold information for the doctor that they're taking a certain medication. The doctor could then go and prescribe a medication that is dangerous in conjunction with that undisclosed medication. And there's so many possible scenarios like that one that can result from patient, nondisclosure. So what can we do about it? It wouldn't be so bad. If doctors knew when their patients were fibbing, but mosit- says there only a few clues that studies have turned up one big one get pause before you lie. Your there's this decision that you're making in your head. I'm going to get onto or am I gonna describe here? And I thought that was kind of interesting because that's not something that I personally am really aware of. And in fact, I can tell you there, are physicians are usually the worst person to figure out if the patients line, I think we know from research on lying that it is in general difficult to detect Ryan whether it's within the medical setting or not. Now, I don't think the doctors get any specific training. I in that regard. And there's so many other things that doctors have to focus on that the patient does talk about that. I'm not sure that they have a lot of time to kind of chase down things that the patient isn't talking about however, Moffet says it's time very well spent and even though it's patients who aren't forthcoming. Doctors are the ones who are in the best position to take some time to fix it. The dock we need to take some responsibility here in create the environment that the patient feels comfortable opening because I'm gonna say this even questions that are on a more intimate nature like sexual behaviors if I don't know you're engaging in these things, and there may be risk to you that are associated with this. Then I'm blind to that. And I'm not considering it in potentially the differential diagnosis that I may be considering you, and if I don't have that information came on me, it's partly my fault. I would hope that my patients would be more for coming. But I'm gonna say we gotta own our piece of this. And I think that is creating that environment of trust. So that you know that I'm not going to judge. You this information that I need to help. Take care of you. Is it a matter of heaven clinicians? Make better I contact is a matter of asking the more uncomfortable stuff kind of in a questionnaire prior to the appointment 'cause maybe it's easier to tell a piece of paper about something embarrassing than to tell your clinician face to face. Maybe it's a matter of when the clinician asks about some embarrassing symptom or uncomfortable issue going on that maybe it's the clinician normalizes it for the patients have a lot of patients who deal with erectile dysfunction at your age. Do you ever feel any issues in that regard? So perhaps that would make patients feel more comfortable. We would have to test is different Chatterjee's, but those are some possibilities that could potentially have an impact the doctrine curriculum Moffitt directs at the university of Arizona tackles, all of this head on by teaching medical students communication skills that invite the patient to open up. How do you teach a young person to engender trust? And so those are the things that I work with my students on so it's really active listening. So you shut your mouth, and you allow your patient to tell the story you can ask clarifying questions. I'm going to say this. It is truly as a labor of love because most of us want to get in and just get the story and make a diagnosis and then move on. But in truly trying to develop trust, and you need to actually allow your patients to talk one keys to get patients to connect emotionally in the encounter. It would go something like this. So tell me emotionally, how are you dealing with this? And so you may say to me, I'm really worried about this test paint. Okay. So then I'm going to ask an explorer questions. So then tell me more why you're worried, and then you might tell me on my gosh, you know, my father died when he was my age from a heart attack. And I think this is what this is or you might tell me something else. Okay. So the issue here is that now I have an understanding of why you're worried one other skill Moffat teaches is silence. Sometimes doctors have to resist filling it up with their own words, and let the patient do it. It's amazing. I mean, we feel uncomfortable with it. And so it's just a little techniques that you tell the student you need to count in your head one thousand in one one. Two thousand and two. So that you allow I mean, it's gonna be uncomfortable for you. You're to want to fill it. And you cannot you need to let them it is truly islands is golden it really is because it will allow the person sitting across from you to open up and begin to share. It's also important for doctors to make everything they say understandable. Because one other finding of the survey on fibbing is this many patients aren't telling the truth when they say they understand what their doctors told them. But none of what it takes to get patients to open up and tell the truth takes very long as long as the doctor knows how to do it. You can imagine. I mean, just like the tools that I'm using most docs, feel like.

The third period rather, the Beezer ahead almost all the game in now, the sharks have caught up with him still six minutes left, but San Jose ahead five to four we'll keep you updated on that as well. I guess it's Terry Downes executive director for homeland security at Middlesex community college. Of course, we're talking about them. What happened Aurora Illinois this week? And I did the big setup before the break, Terry. What do we do what can reasonably done with perhaps a little tweaking here or there because whether people are in favor of it or not what should become a patently obvious, particularly talk about our next subject is nothing major is going to be done. So this is what we're going to have to learn to live with. So as such what do we do to perhaps keep this sort of thing from happening with the proverbial tweaks, I think things can happen here that would not be dramatic. But that could lead to substantial. Improvements. First of all the the system that's been in a ineffective in Illinois for some time where you can get what in Massachusetts would be called a firearm. Identification out there. They call it the hip. Oh. That should be tightened up a little bit by one additional procedural requirement which is that they have to do a fingerprint. Check if you do a fingerprint. Check you submit the fingerprints to the FBI laboratory down in Quantico Virginia, they run it through their system. And generally they can pretty quickly identify whether or not somebody has a a record of a felony anywhere in the country that would be reported back to the requesting state in this case of annoy, and they would have known right up front deny in the legal rights to legal authority to buy and possess a weapon. Now, we all know that that does not mean somebody might not quote on on the illegal market by something on the black market. But you do what you can with the tools that you have available to you at the time. This is a simple steps that could be taken administratively. It's not much of. Additional burden. It adds a, you know, a couple of weeks extra time, maybe the to get the information back from the FBI, but that's pretty reasonable in the circumstances. And that one step would significantly increase the likelihood of uncovering somebody who had a felony record. And and that's putting him on notice that we know you've had the felony record would not going to allow you to have a weapon lawfully, and the locals would know local police would know this person apply was turned down. You know? Maybe we should keep an eye on Terry's a reasonable to expect that some people may go nuts over the idea of being fingerprinted to get a gun. Oh, yeah. That could be an issue. I know, but you know, I I had a great to criminal law professor in law school who used to tell us that you can't worry too much about the people who have. Unusual views on the left or the right. You've got the would try to. To and work with the great mass of people who are in the middle or pretty reasonable about things. I if he gets worried about the people on the fringes what they feel about things nothing of note is ever gonna happen. So you hit the mainstream. You look to hit the gas. You've gotta hit the mainstream and stay with that. And and sometimes it's great to to be a system that that recognizes the rights of minorities, sometimes even minorities. A small as a single person. But sometimes that's single personnel that very small group of people who are objecting. Unreasonable and they're blocking progress for everybody. We're going to go to the phone lines. Again, you want to be part of the conversation. Six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. We've got Ralph in Maine on the line Ralph. How are you tonight? Good morning. Thank you. Hey, what part of being you calling from? From right above Augusta. Maine the capital Belgrade. Yup. You have a camp up this way. I am my family is gonna place in in in in Kennebunkport. And I know you guys don't even you guys. Don't even consider that part of me. And I understand that route that's still that's northern Massachusetts. But I I've been up to Augusta. Yeah. But I have to Augusta and and their friends up in the in the Bangor area and traveled around there too. So good to have you along for the ride tonight. What's going on? Thank you. Well, the second amendment the right side. Is always complaining that the government is going to take. The government is going to take the guns away. Vice president Biden said that everybody should have a shotgun in their house. So why do they keep saying this as they have about the government taking the guns? They're not going to take the guns. And and Rush Limbaugh and back in Hannity. They keep hopping on that government wants your gun. Somebody has to come out. I'm both sides and say that's not going to happen. I think that ties into Ralph with what Terry it said is old professor as you kind of had kind of like have to look at the mainstream. And and what the majority of people are considering in this point, I realized a long time ago because sadly Terry knife had so many discussions the Vegas shooting parkland shooting it just goes on and on and I've come to realize if something as completely over the top as the the Las Vegas shootings or an hour at the first anniversary the shootings, if those sorts of things did not create a massive change, in the way, people view gun possession gun laws and like in this country. Then it just ain't gonna happen. So I I've kind of like realized whether it's left or right or upper down. I just realized what we're going to have to just accept for better for worse is apparently what we have right now is what we're gonna get. And we're gonna to. How do we tweak things at least to make a things a little less dangerous for us? Or is this the way the majority of people are willing to live here in the twenty first century because as I've talked about with Terri and ask Terry look this up, and and Terry I'm going to have you comment on these two because you could do far better job in this. And I do, you know, the the the evidence out there's absolutely it's empirical. This isn't something that happens around the world, the the enormity and regularity of these mass shootings is confined to the United States. In an extraordinary degree. You have to add up the totals of several other several other nations like the second third fourth and fifth other nations in mass shootings to come close to what the totals are America. So we're we're. And I think we'll have to understand do we do massive change. If it hasn't happened, yet Ralph I don't know if it's going to happen. Well, do they accept? I think Fox News. It contributes to the hatred of the democrat Republican thing we never had that before Fox News, who's always Republicans and Democrats used to get along. Then all of a sudden you got. Fake news for pin- opinion. They're all opinions. They get by with that. And I think you're right. It's funny. Whether people again are on the left or on the right what everyone seems to agree on is the system as it exists right now is Broken Hill. But in the town, maybe step by step. How do we fix that? You raise some good points that other people have raised Ralph. And let's see is something going to happen. Finally outrageous enough to maybe make people look at things a little differently, and if not can we at least tweak things because I you know, I I read an article recently that was a British newspaper where you can go in America to be safe from a mass shooting, and basically it was a blank page. How powerful is that. Because if you think of in the last couple of years, it's been bars it's been clubs. It's been concerts. It's been churches. It's been schools. It's been restaurants. And and it's pretty telling sometimes the way people outside look at things inside. So Terry before I let Ralph go I didn't Tacoma. And then I didn't about how unique America is in these things. Unfortunately, we are an outlier in this regard. We per capita the good far more guns owned privately than any other country in the world. The second amendment has been an important part of the constitution since it was a it is not going anywhere. Private ownership of guns is not going away. And the suggestions the content suggestions from some sources that it's going to which just silly. They just don't make sense. It's not going to happen. And and what we need is some more people from like some of the people from Maine, historically, like Margaret chase Smith who was a Republican, but who could work across the aisle, and who was a courageous person and get a lot done. We had a few more people like that in congress and in the legislatures. We'd be a whole lot better off than we are at the moment here L, thank you for the call. And thank you for listening. Keep listening and a call again. Okay. Take care now. We'll see you. Thank you. Six one seven two five four ten thirty is the number six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. That's toll-free number want to be part of the conversation. We're going to take a quick break. And then right back to our chat with Terry Downes. We gotta talk. What did we.

"In arlington. One of the things I wanted to mention as I talked about this great while Bill hickok book and joking with the author Tom Claven about it. As we're trying to describe what sort of a man while Bill hickok was. He was a rare fish. Dresser was very very weird as parents always tried to address well bathed daily, and you can imagine in the old west that was not an easy thing to do. And not only was not easy. It was not something many did beating weekly was exceptional. But he used to bathe daily. Well over six feet tall. Which was very big for those days. He ever check was maybe five four or five five for most men. But as joking with Tom glavin, there is a passage in the book where the wife of George Armstrong Custer himself, quite a character. Of course describes. While Bill hickok in her memoir that was published in eighteen ninety. And if you consider the times, it's difficult to imagine a more lusty passage here. Asked Thomas at Tom with did they ever get to know each other in the biblical sense, as the expression goes, he said, well, you know, she always danced around that you never know. But listen to this passage how she describes wild Bill hickok, and this will give you a good example wide such a fun book to read. Tall live in free in every motion. He wrote and walked as if every muscle was perfection, and the careless swing of his body as he moved seemed perfectly in keeping with the man the country the time in which he lived I do not recall anything finer in the way of physical perfection than wild Bill when he swung himself lightly from his saddle and with graceful swaying step squarely Senate Scholla's in well-poised head approached our tent for orders. He was rather fantastically cloud. Of course. But all seemed perfectly in keeping with the time and place. He did not make an armory of his waist, but carry two pistols, you were top boots riding breeches and dark blue flannel. Shirt with scarlet set in the front a loose neck handkerchief left, his fine firm throat free. I do not remember all his features. But the Frank Manley expression of his fearless is and his courteous manner gave one a feeling of confidence in his word. And his undaunted courage. Yikes. The only thing missing from that is they're saying is again, I joked earlier this evening is why I do believe that I have a case of the VP's. Quite exceptional book, quite an exceptional, man. If I can find one last passage that had a lot to do with how skilled he was with his handguns. It was said that he can throw a tomato can the air and. Well, here we go. He enjoyed putting on shooting exhibitions, especially impressive was his Ambi district. Ambidextrous? Accuracy witnesses reported kill all of this. This is the eyewitness accounts. Witnesses reported seeing hickok driving a cork through the neck of a whiskey bottle at twenty paces. The bullet. Wow. Splitting a bullet on the edge of a dime at the same distance twenty paces and putting his many as a dozen bullet holes in a tomato can that he'd been tossed in the air? Yeah. This guy was a gunfighter. Letting the public know he was always at the top of his game could dissuade ambitious gunmen from trying to take hickok on such men that may have entertained thoughts of gunfighter glory, but they weren't suicidal. This was a man who was on the cusp of becoming the eighteen sixties equivalent of a matinee idol in a country. Civil war glory was receding into history. And we're now was looking west for new legends. And he filled that Bill boy did he feel that Bill glavin just dealt with what he could absolutely find as a fact and there there's plenty in there. So just take note of the book, it's a great read. And if you know someone who is a history buff or a fan of the old west. Oh, goodness. Gracious. Are you set for that? We've got about a minute left to call. We're going to be a minute left before we had done here. I will be back in a couple of weeks, and I'll be sneaking in during the month here and there because they'll be filling in for Bradley, Jay, something guests, I'll have on with me during the remainder of the month. Well, it's about time to. To have some of our old for guests on with us. So you can expect that we're going to have Terry Downes, the director of homeland security Middlesex community college will be pop again before the month is over. We're also going to have Gary summers of antiques roadshow collectables fame. Joining me before we are done with February where you can call in and get yourself appraised. Find out how much your stuff might be worth. And you just never know who else might be popping in and before we are done here. A couple of quick scores for you before we wrap things up. Again, Bruins beat the LA kings five to four and over time. That's the good news. The bad news at this is really bad news. Trust me, there's going to be a lot of collateral damage in Celtics locker room because of this game. Celtics lost to the LA clippers won twenty three to one twelve at one point the Celtics had twenty eight point lead and blew it. The most that they have given up.

"Sunshine and twenty eight degrees right now in Boston the AccuWeather forecast calling for a cold weekend. Good afternoon, I'm Mike Macklin WBZ news. Here's a look at what's happening. The government shutdown wreaking havoc for many Americans, hundreds of thousands of federal employees. Still don't know when they'll see another paycheck, low income people relying on the government safety net worry about whether they'll be able to make ends meet should the stalemate in Washington continue. We get more on our top story from CBS is Gary Nunn. The partial government shutdown is a lot more than a letdown thousands of people live paycheck to paycheck, and that's pretty serious. And we want to talk about child care given mortgage making your grocery Bill phone Bill really adds up. One Denver FEMA employees the shutdown now in its twenty second day no end in sight. There is a sliver of good news for furloughed government employees before they. Left washington. Congress passed legislation to ensure that federal workers receive back pay the president says he will sign that Bill. But until he and Democrats reach a deal it's unclear when federal employees will get that paycheck CBS's, Kenneth Craig most polls show that President Trump is getting most of the blame for the shutdown. Republicans are debating whether declaration of a national emergency to build a border wall without cash from congress is really a good idea. CBS news update, I'm Gary Nunn. CBS news also reporting that the TSA is approved a one time five hundred dollar reward for each uniform TSA screening agent, essentially, a performance bonus for the holiday season five hundred dollars represents about four days bay for the average TSA screener. Massachusetts. First term congresswoman Laurie Trahan says the ball is now in the senate's court. She's urging Senate Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell to call for vote on house passed legislation to end the shot down. They need to take it up on the Senate floor, and we need to see which senators are going to vote for the shutdown which are going to vote to end the shutdown. But yes, absolutely. This is the role of the Senate to take up the legislation that was just passed in the host Trahan says she's open to considering steps to increase security at the southern border. But says she does not support building. The wall was President Trump is demanding California. Congressman Scott Peters says President Trump's insistence on wall is quote, borderline crazy.

"It stays dry and sunny, so we're not talking about ingrates. No for awhile once more against is Scott Latam from UMass Lowell manning school of business and just before the break, Scott, I talked about the the the struggle between online. Retail and the brick and mortar retails and online is just winning more and more. So is there going to be a big period of adjustment? Because as this happens as you yourself talked about more and more stores and chains are going to be closing. So theoretically that would initially put more people out of work. What kind of an adjustment will be economy maker is it really really making it. It's in the midst of it, and you know, dean, I it's there's gonna be a hell of a lot of pain associated with it. I don't want to get to. Academic expect you to say that Scott. I worried about that. But I I just wanted. Okay. Well, here's the deal. I mean, so. There's a term creative destruction. It's an old economics term and basically deals with innovation. And what it tells you, you know? Went innovation happens inevitably brings a lot of new value to the market, but the people associated with the older value or displaced in. So you know, it's it's well known. It's going to happen in the retail sector in the retail sector is a huge employer. You know, while I don't mean to sound like a doomsday prognosticator, I think it's important in the classroom, and again Hamburg, and I talked about this a lot in our classrooms. We tried to prepare students to be flexible in their careers. And I try to do that, you know, I was out at an economic form for Massachusetts a couple of weeks ago up and Bill Ricker at the DC you center, you know, in talking about this. I think if we try to whistle past the graveyard in think that well, we'll make this transition from you know, brick and mortar retail excuse me to online that it's not going to be without pain or just kidding ourselves. So I think. It's a really important that we're honest with people that they retrain they upskill in there at least cognizant that these change is going to happen. Now, what are going to be the options for people who may either full time or part time work retail as a as a salesperson to like because even as we're I think people are always of the mine business like nature hates a vacuum. So call you know, that we talked about Kaldor closing well, then target moved in and toys R us have shut down ocean street job lots of filling in a lot of their stores. But there's going to be a time when that's not going to happen to be the options. You know, my joke is now, and I said this a few times when I go to a place like in the treatise, very, well, I'm not knocking these people. That's the way to do business. These days and understand that. But when I go to a JC Penney or Kohls. Now, I fully expect at some point an embryo is going to wait on me because they just keep getting younger and younger and younger. Sure, what are going to be the job options for a lot of these people always said, well, you know, I'll get a job at at JCP, and we're going to get a job at target or something if the time. Uh-huh. Where no moss. Yeah. I saw I think th there's two prongs to what has to happen. I think one is a policy it's political. I think the best example to to offer a specific remedy. Someone aside from politics like sounded a war and a lot of credit for what she did. With toys. R us, for example, toys R us went under put about twenty five thousand people out of work. And you know, she stepped up to the investors and said, listen this isn't right. You need to give these folks, you know, a buffer you need to help pay some benefits to help them get reemployed new players. So I think politicians have to you know. Stop bickering like school kids in stock to really recognize that these changes are coming in that you don't if you think about the folks that work in retail. They're often the people on the fringe of the economy. Single mothers people from disadvantaged populations people that may not have a college degree. And so now, we're basically kicking these folks to the curb, and it's it's it's really bothersome second or third job just to make ends meet. So I do think there has to be a natch a national discussion around helping people in these industries that are transitioning then the second prong is it's falls on academia higher. Ed. You know, you think about someone that's gonna get unemployed at Sears toys R us. And then you look at them and say, well, you know, what go back and get a four year degree. Are you kidding me? You might as well, tell them to go climbing mile Napper's not gonna happen because I do think in one of the things that we at least have in Massachusetts is we have a very diverse economy. I think these people can be reskill to go be lab technicians in healthcare to be low level cybersecurity analyst I can detect threats coming into an organization, but a four year degree isn't something that's going to help naval that what they need is a six month bootcamp like certificate in right now higher red doesn't provide that we're starting to. We're trying to get more to what you call a competency based learning model or certificate based learning model, but right now. We're bachelors masters doctorate in that type of monolithic degree is not well suited for what you asked me to your credit. The first question we in interesting times. And right now, the two are out of whack. I talked to a lot of industry groups dean, they're doing their own education. You know, you look vertical industry group like mass bio mass high tech, they're training their own folks because they look at higher red, and they go folks your models. No working for our industry turns over every year, we need new skills constantly. So there is a disconnect. And I think the traditional hybrid model is broke. But I think again, it has to come from the political side of the fence it has to come from. You know, my Ed side of the fence. Well, even when when I talked to, you know, your your socio win when we were talking about jobs, and automation and robotics, and the like, it really opened my eyes over the fact that okay, you say send them to a four year school to do what the journalist. No, that's not going to be any good. And it kills me to say that because I I was an ink stained wretches, but most of my life, but as people come up to me on they'll say my kids in school. What should I tell them? I tell them to become a plumber. Trish in you know, they'll they'll that's job security. That's not a four year school. You don't need a doctor in a PHD, but he will always have work journalist. Yeah. He can do that as long as he is another job that will make money. So as you said even saying, well, we'll send them to four to get a bachelor some no guarantees anymore. Don't care any more about that. I support that I would want my dad. My dad was a blue collar guy. He was a contractor. I in college kids. He's amazing with his hands, and he wants my son. And even my daughter to go too late to Bennett street school and learn carpentry in Boston. And he he knows enough. A now when I do with regards to being a business professor he says, hey, John could go learn how to be a cabinet maker in run the business with the skills. He had a college. My dad he's dead on with that in. So the has to be abused new hybrid type degrees. You're starting to see some apprentice ships, we're working with some of the folks schools, I know Middlesex community colleges working with some of the Vokes cools. But you know, they're play what it is deem. That's a shift in thinking. Now. You say, hey, my kid's going Vokes. What's the matter? He couldn't get college. That is the biggest amount of BS I've ever heard, you know, and so until we can shift the way we think of education in preparing these kids to compete in a global economy. You know, it's gonna be tough. But that's what we have to go. You're absolutely right. Scott is you were talking about that it made me think for so many high schools in the area in Massachusetts is one of the leading states in terms of college education, if not the leading state, I know it's in the top five at least, I think that's the problem for a lot of high schools in the area for a lot of community schools the basis excess and how many of the graduates went to college. And you know, the the fewer the that it went to college the more they feel the program failed the kids, and that's not necessarily the case at all. As you mentioned in perhaps in the future will be even less so take a break in a couple of minutes. Again, just for the sake of gossip we'll talk about Sears later before we let you go, and they promise not to over extend you, but I I really appreciate you taking the time because always talked about a lot on the air. But before it quickly, what stores chains. Do you think will be the next ones to go? We'll take Sears audible, we'll talk about separately. JC penny. I was wondering about that. Cole. I think is. Really you go in and you just feel like the places on its last legs. And you can just see it. You know, the clothes on top of the blenders the blender boxes are open. I don't want to name the retailer, but I got a gift from someone this year had already been used return. I mean, it's one of the ones that I would expect the next to go what you'll see I you won't see them go. You're going to see a wave of mergers is what you're going to see. And you're gonna get the same thing. You saw what Sears and KMart if you merge too flawed companies you get one big flood. Never ceases to amaze me math at all Scott. I know so JC Penney and cold surprises me. But again, I don't pay a lot of attention. These things you just figure there are calls all over the place. And they and maybe this should have tipped me off when you look at their flyers when you look at their ads, they have unbelievable deals and times if it's too good to be true. It's too good to be true. It is. So those those would be the first few that I would be who do you think is the safest was doing the best who's doing the best right now believe it or not is WalMart. Walmart has you know, they've survived the Amazon onslaught I think they've gotten their legs back underneath them. They're on on blind capabilities have really improved. They're starting to do some innovative stuff around same day delivery out of stores. They're starting to do some pre ordered mail kits that are interest. For busy people at a lower price point. So walmart. I think is is starting to you know, wake back up. I wouldn't have said that two years ago they were really in dire straits at that point in time. I can tell you. I don't think I hear too many people that were or too many companies that were not doing well a couple years ago that were typically we might say more old school is WalMart that a bounce back. That's impressive. You don't see that happening? These days usually you stop playing taps for them. Instead. That's true. It is twelve forty eight here WBZ, we'll take a quick break. And then right back to the compensation..
