Not at birth With macular degeneration. You lose your central vision. You have a blind spot right in the center of your face, so I can't actually see your face. So even that little circle in which I could see became a big blur. I was 65. When I first was diagnosed with glaucoma, there were no symptoms had no headaches. Three million Americans have glaucoma and half don't even know it. 11 million people in the United States have macular degeneration. You lose mobility, independence changes your entire life.

South Africa: A Country Founded on Critical Race Theory?

"Here's the article headlined south africa. The first country built on critical race theory. Officially implodes. And i thought to myself that is so perfect. What would happen if we founded a country and built a country on all of these academic ideas that we see talked about in higher education. What would be what would happen with that. Look like the answer is south africa. South africa is totally disintegrating again reading from revolver dot news. So happened is that there is the jailing of this person. By the name of jacob zuma and the supporters of the former president took the streets to allegedly protest. But what they really wanted to do was to plunder and steal at will sound familiar the death toll already of all the riots are already into the dozens in south africa. Do you know there are fifty seven murders day in south africa. That's almost american levels of murders. Such a. That's why. I say it's insane per capita by the way that's what i mean. Yeah i was. Yeah so i'm just saying. America was probably let me guess. America probably has two hundred murders day. This is interesting questions. And how many murders does america. Today we have three hundred thirty million people versus no totally. I'm just i'm guessing the point. Is that the rioters. Have plundered shops and entire shopping malls.

After Fatal Floods, Germans Look at How Climate Change Contributed

"To germany now where crews are cleaning up after the worst floods the region has seen nearly six decades more than one hundred sixty people have died. The damage amounts to billions of dollars. Now germans are asking what role climate change may be playing and how to keep this from happening again. Npr's rob schmitz has been out surveying the destruction. He joins us from the flood. Region near bonn. Hey rob emyr lewis. So i know you have been out. In one of the worst hit towns. You spent yesterday talking to people there. What are they saying about how this happened. Yes spoke to several yesterday. In the town of knowing of isla people who had suffered incredible damage to their homes. Dozens of people in this town died in this disaster and the one thing everyone was talking about was how unnatural all of the seem. The rain was nothing like anyone had ever seen. Before the way the tiny creek that runs through this town the are filled up from below a foot deep to twenty five feet deep in a matter of a few hours as water rushed down into this valley as spoke to resident martin larsen about this and he thought climate change was definitely a part of this but he also listed other culprits behind the severity of the flooding. Here's what he said. This type of flooding is not normal. This type of rain is not normal. The consequences of not for the main thing is probably infrastructure. Now you've probably been building everywhere where we hear you asphalted. Everything's paved the river straight. Yeah it's not bending back and forth. It's been manipulated by man throughout the years. It's nice and and shallow and it's just cozy but when it comes high water it's a germany is europe's most populous country. It's about the size of new mexico but it has more than eighty million people in that area so its population is fairly dense and there are so many towns like the one i visited yesterday that are built along waterways that are highly engineered and urban management to prevent these extreme weather events from causing so much damage is something that german officials will likely start analyzing more closely in the aftermath of this tragedy.

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

And heat advisories. And what does this do? The working people, especially working people who work outside we are facing an epidemic levels of heat stress heat. Stress is when The body can't properly cooled down so its core temperature keeps rising to potentially lethal levels. Key organs start to shut down And yet we have working people in this country and around the world who work in the fields who work outdoors, doing certain kinds of repairs, who work in hot factories work in Amazon fulfillment centers and all sorts of places. Where climate change even when the fires aren't raging threatens their life, so it's time to do something now.

"For extra scrutiny. Any claim set aside for a manual review can take months to resolve had their long economic correspondent at the washington. Post joins us for more. Thanks for joining us. Heather hi good to be here. Wanted to check in on all those americans that are still waiting for unemployment aid You know we saw the battle in congress overextending enhanced unemployment benefits. They came to a deal just before the new year. But we're seeing that a lot of people months into this pandemic. they're waiting for months to get any type of unemployment aid. A lot of it has to do with trying to prove people's identities but there's all sorts of little glitches that could prolong the whole process. Heather tell us a little bit about what we're seeing. Yeah it's really tragic. Obviously we know. Millions of people lost their jobs because of this pandemic and the really sad part is people who applied some in march and april for unemployment insurance through their state. Still haven't it. You know we talked to i. Hope and bartender in savannah loses job service. Last drink march fourteenth He's out of work march fifteenth. And he's still had not received any money from the unemployment system in the state of georgia as of december. When we spoke with him he was finally paid number thirty first after the washington post inquired about his case and we just heard that over and over again we took a deeper look at the numbers and we found at least one point. Two million people or in a similar situation to that bartender. And obviously if you haven't had any money coming in for months these people are losing their homes. They're unable to pay for their car unable to buy food and running up credit card debt. We just heard horror story after horror story and just to put a kind of a number two that the bartender that you were talking about. When he finally received his unemployment aid was on december thirty first and he got it. It was fourteen thousand dollars. So think of that. Ed over the course of months he you know he should have been getting this money just to help them. Get through and as you mentioned. There's a lot of stories that are like this. So let's talk about the biggest reasons for these delays. So we're seeing extensive fraud. Prevention checks a lot of these states have antiquated computer systems. Which we know has been a long problem for now and then a lot of these applications are getting flagged for extra scrutiny. And when that happens it adds months to it right off. The bat because of the backlog is so big you've got a great job summarizing it. I think one of the biggest issues. Obviously nobody wants bunch of this money to go to people who are scammers or fraudsters but the problem is a lot of states have implemented such a high hurdle you have to provide more information to the state unemployment office. Then you do to get a driver's license or even a real. Id in most states and so did you give a concrete example. We talked to a woman. Michelle in pennsylvania lost her job at a live events company in march pretty similar story and she thought she had provided all the documentation. She provided a copy of her driver's license. Her passport her birth certificate her utility bills or landline phone. That she still had that bill and she called in and was like what's going on you know. Why hasn't my paperwork on through. And they said well you. You didn't provide a photo of the back of your birth certificate. She said well. The back of my birth certificate is blank. There's nothing on it the same for mine. And so it's just these things where you're sitting there scratching your head like this is just silliness. That's preventing these people from getting the benefits. They deserve you mentioned fraud and there is some fraud i think. California was an example. Where bank of america estimated that they paid up to two billion dollars in fraudulent claims. What are we seeing on that front. Obviously there has been any time. You have fifty million people who've applied for unemployment this year there's bound to be some that are scammers or fraudsters. We've seen that with a number of government programs in twenty twenty but again it's that balance between at the same time as article points out. There's people who have very valid cases and they are getting these months-long away so there needs to be a middle ground here and one of the biggest issues we're seeing is any time. Someone gets flagged for manual review. So basically if there's any hitch in the case like that woman who didn't have the back of her birth certificate photographed or you know somebody who makes a typo having helped them in their application or there's any sort of extenuating circumstance like. Maybe if you quit your job you normally don't apply can't apply for unemployment but in twenty twenty you could if you quit your job to say take care of a sick relative or take care of kids who are home from school. Your application will get flagged for extra view and there just weren't enough people who are working in these state unemployment offices who had that senior investigators senior review titled to be able to review these cases. And so that's what these months long delays. I talked to one woman who'd been waiting over five months. They told her well. Maybe some of them will call you in february. Twenty twenty one about your situation. That's tough and on top of that just kind of add onto how difficult this is. You know states to implement a lot of these new programs from scratch so sometimes people don't qualify for the regular unemployment but they might qualify for the aid under new cova rules and specifically when it comes to gig workers. It's very tough to calculate their money. Because you know gig. Workers income can fluctuate from week to week so having to do those calculations these are a lot of the things that are increasing the backlog really exactly congress did create a new program. Last year to help self-employed and gig workers including uber and lyft drivers among many others and that was called pandemic. Pa there are roughly nine million people who were on that program and in december so this is not some little side program. This turned out to be a real key saving lifeline for a lot of people but they handled it very differently because it was a brand new program some of them like the state of georgia required quite extensive documentation before they would release any funds. Other states took the approach that they sort of gave people the benefit of the doubt. They could provide any documentation that they had a job. Before the kovin hit they went at least pay people. The minimum amount of the minimum amount is barely over one hundred dollars a week. So people weren't definitely not getting rich off of ua but they sort of aired on the side of caution. I think the real bottom line here too big takeaways for listeners. Number one is. We shouldn't have been upgrading and investing in state unemployment offices for years and there was years of neglect and some of these states running computer programs from the sixties seventies and eighties and. That's just unacceptable and the second thing is our unemployment system. It's still geared in this country towards factory workers again basically the mentality of serving workers from the nineteen eighties. We know we have a lot more gig workers. We know we have a lot more people working multiple jobs or working across state lines. All of this really is not built into our state on our to our unemployment system. And that's been a huge huge problem. That's so many people are still thinking. they're cracks. We were not ready other long. Economic correspondent at the washington post.

"Run virus is still running rampant across the country as the debt. Count in the. Us is now over. Two hundred and fifty thousand thanksgiving is approaching and public health. Experts have urged caution over large gatherings one. More point caution. More than three million people are estimated to be contagious with the corona virus according to new models by epidemiologist at columbia university. Joel bach science reporter at the washington. Post joins us for why this estimate is so much higher than official case counts. Thanks for joining joel. Thanks for having me. It's been kind of a weird up and down week with the news regarding corona virus. We're getting a lot of good news on the vaccine front. Madonna has vaccine candidate. That is ninety four point. Five percent effective pfizer updated their numbers. Their candidate is now ninety. Five percent effective against cove in one thousand nine hundred great news on that front but on the other side of things we're seeing cases surge all over the place. There's a lot of states and cities talking about new rounds of lockdowns and shutdowns of businesses. And then i came across your article about some new modeling that says that more than three million people in the us are estimated to be contagious with corona virus. And the really wanna talk about is. It's especially important going into the week of thanksgiving coming into the holidays. We gotta be careful and still continue to do all the things we were told to do. The mask wearing the social distancing. But joel help us walk through what we're learning of some of these new models that are coming out the two things you've just mentioned are actually related in kind of a bizarre way. So we're in this fall slash winter. Search this is like nineteen eighteen in which it looks like the fall wave of this pandemic is going to be worse even than the spring ways. Which is what happened in nineteen with pandemic influenza. But there's so many people right now are infected and contagious. Our story tried to look at it at a certain metric that you'd never read about or hear about almost never because it's a hard thing to nail down. Which is how many people are currently contagious. So if you hear about whether it's eleven million cases in us that's going back to february right. Most of those eleven million got it and then got over it you know and and hopefully most of them have immunity now. The question is when you have this huge surge. In of of cases of confirmed infections confirmed through testing how many people actually have it above and beyond the ones that have been confirmed with the testing and so the columbia university. Researchers have a model where they estimate that right now. There are three point six million people who are actively contagious. It's a huge number. That's a little more than one percent of the whole population separately using different methods and if somewhat different kind of metric the people at the university of washington told me that they think three point two million people have been infected just in the two weeks just since election. Three point two million. So those numbers. They're not exactly the same thing. Because the columbia folks think even more people have been infected but their numbers. Just the people who are actively contagious. But the fact is we're talking about several million people who are in the country potentially spreading the virus right now. They're not evenly distributed but they are 'cause a lot of cases in the upper midwest a lot of cases in in certain places Utah oklahoma hiwa el paso texas. But we're seeing rising cases now in the northeast Including in new york city which has just closed public schools. And would you have so many people in fact it creates a lot of challenges for contact tracing in isolation but the one good thing is it speeds up your vaccine program because you get results quicker so much virus down..

"Well the average snap benefit is about a dollar forty per person per meal. You can't even buy dunkin.

I mean ought to have a system where no one has to worry about food food. I'd be viewed as a fundamental human right and And for some reason it isn't And the implications of not dealing with this issue. It's not just that people are hungry. It has it.

Let's let's put an end to this myth that somehow hunger is is just a problem for people homeless. It is a problem for those who are homeless problem for those who are jobless is a problem for those who are in jobs that pay with. Don't pay a livable wage. And that's tens of millions of people the majority of people on snap right now Who able to work actually do work but they earn so little still qualify for the benefit. So you said a minute ago. We need a system where no one has to be hungry. How do we how do we do that. What's the difference between where we are policy-wise today and being at a point where we did have that system in place.

"One million people are struggling to get enough to eat in massachusetts. Hunger raiders up fifty nine percent since twenty eighteen and one. In five of the commonwealth's children are food insecure. One in five. Those numbers are from feeding america. A national nonprofit network of over two hundred foodbanks the pandemic has of course exacerbated all aspects of hunger here from the need to the logistics of meeting that need around the state a little later. We will talk with congressman. Jim mcgovern about federal policy as it affects hunger and food aid but first let's get an on the ground look at serving. Those who need food support andrew more houses the executive director of the western massachusetts food bank and norris guscott runs lynn's food security task force and is the director of lind's food and fitness alliance. Andrew and norris welcomed radio boston. Thank you for being so norse. Let's start with you and i just. I wanted to find the term for people. What does it mean for a family to be. food insecure. Great opening question so food. Insecurity is defined as not having access to enough healthy affordable food. That's going to look different from area to area state to state and lennon particularly if it's tied to socioeconomic so that's how much money have i got to purchase. Food can easily get to where they're selling food and do i know what foods i need to nourish myself or my family and andrew. You've been running the western massachusetts food bank since two thousand and five iran and organization with a network of food pantries recession. I remember how overwhelming the surge in need was in those early days. Can you compare then to now. Sure i could do my best. It seems that was eons ago. Given what we're going through. But my recollection is is that that was almost like a a drip a great recession. It didn't happen or didn't affect individuals overnight time so we had the opportunity and the resources to address it as it unfolded whereas in the case of a covid nineteen in there was just such a sudden spike in food insecurity associated with the onset of covid nineteen across our commonwealth that created a lot of chaos. We just really weren't ready to respond to such a dramatic increase in food insecurity and at the same time and outpouring of interest to support our efforts and get food out to people in unusual ways because our normal way of distributing food had been disrupted due to a health concern that people faced. Did you ever expect million number a well. Let's be clear here that this is a projection of of one million up by the end of the year and into the winter months really So it's yet to be born out but thus far all numbers are trending in that direction. So it's sobering indeed no. I never expected the numbers to be here in in western massachusetts that those ratios are actually one in four children in western mass. So you know it's it's extremely challenging and people are struggling Immensely with unimaginable anxiety and stress. And there's nothing more they can do to reach out to..

"millions people" Discussed on Marketplace Morning Report with David Brancaccio

"Hey it's Kim host of million zillion the new podcast for kids from marketplace and brains on. We know talking about money can be tough, which is why we're here to answer all the weird and awkward questions that you and your kids have about money and don't worry. We keep it fun. Listen to million zillion a show that helps dollars make more sense subscribe wherever you get your guests. We have parents, students, teachers, and school administrators across the country worried about how to safely pull off this new school term and get still get people educated a new study. This morning from bank rate suggest people are not just worried about the quality of education and the scheduling but what online or partial online learning will do to their finances and careers. Marketplace's Kristen Schwab has here. Will. There are a lot of cost come with school from home parents can't depend on school lunches and special learning programs, and of course, there's the technology upgrade for households that don't have the internet or Anita better connection plus with multiple kids need multiple devices right in many parents who were asked to work from home but also feel they have to lend time and energy to their child's online learning. That's a lot. Yeah, the study shows parents are worried they're missing out on career growth and part of that has to do with time with respondents saying they'll have to work fewer hours even more alarming fifteen percent parents say they may have to stop working altogether and the burdens among families are not equal. Of course like everything else in this pandemic, the financial burden of online learning is not equal Ted Rosman. An analyst at bankrate says millennial parents feel they'll be affected the most they're the most likely to have younger kids and I, think that that poses a whole other set of challenges with remote learning and with child care and just making it all work. It doesn't help that millennials in general have little financial stability. They're less likely to own homes and more likely to have student loan debt and those things add to the daily stresses and finances of getting through this pandemic. Marker Blazes, Chris Thank you the average black woman had to work more than nineteen months to make the same money as the average white man made in twelve today August thirteenth is being marked as black women's equal pay day. It's the calculation that black women had to work seven and a half months into twenty twenty here to make up for what they were not paid in two thousand nineteen marketplace's Eric Averse, report the reason black women's equal pay day. So late in the year is because a Black woman before the pandemic made sixty, two cents for every dollar, a white man made. But this is the age of Kobe Bath, Humbert, a business professor at Umass Lowell says in times of crisis, we definitely see existing patterns of inequality become more pronounced during the pandemic industries where women tend to work are being hit harder and black women have been hit hardest by job losses. The unemployment rate among them is thirteen and a half percent that's higher than the overall rate covert is making lack of childcare. To in many cases, says, Warton Professor Stephanie. Black women are the primary caregiver and breadwinner that used to mean they relied on networks of friends and family to care for their children now that we're in a physical distancing situation. The support system that black women might normally get. That's gone away for many people that may force some women to leave the workforce by sue ready with the national. Partnership for women and Family says that could make a long term problem worse. Black women are already concentrated in low paying industries and coming in and out of the workforce can make it harder for them to negotiate pay. If your previous salary is used to determine your new salary than that carries with you that discrimination and inequality carries with you into your new job in the last couple of months lots. Of companies have said that black lives matter ready says companies wanting to show they mean that should pay their black workers equitably but workers can push their employers to says men to hearts author of the memo what women of Color Need to notice a cure seat at the table they can say, well, as a company, you said black lives matter and so the black lives inside of your company have to matter as well and that starts with pay right and even in this economic climate, she says, those steps may chip away at the pay gap I'm Eric Barris for marketplace. and.

"I said, look, people are giving for the first time in their lives saying that they trust the charity for the first time in their lives. It's working, but I can't pay my nine staff over here and he said, well, let me think about your problem. And a couple of days later just after midnight. He sent me an Email saying, I really enjoyed meeting you and I wired a million dollars to your overhead account and that was what we needed. It was almost like the the venture cap-. Title. It was the runway thirteen months of runway. We went from a couple of weeks to year breathing room, which was enough time for us to actually build out that model and today in year twelve. They're now one hundred twenty nine families from around the world that that have joined that first donor who are all giving generously and I'm sure I'll embarrass you this. It'll be fun to do this. But for your listeners, Mike, you've been one of these families that has been so important to us over this time. And that has allowed, you know your your gifts to our staff and our operations along with the other one hundred twenty nine families has now allowed a million people to give an pure play to the water projects and allowed us to track their money. So it's it. Yeah, it was. It was definitely this moment where we could have compromised and and we didn't. And we lived to to tell the story and and really haven't haven't ever been close to that point again. So let's bring it. Let's bring it full circle. Where are you? Guys today, what have you done? So gosh, we've raised about three hundred ten million dollars now from over a million people. We've been able to fund twenty eight thousand water projects across twenty six countries for about eight and a half million people. And you know now we're helping the organization is, is it a scale where we're helping over three thousand people every single day of the year, get clean water while. New people or that's new people must have million a half new people just this year alone while it's awesome. So that's been fun. And one of the ways that we've been doing that I'll just tell another business story. 'cause I know you have a lot of entrepreneurs listening. We had eight years of consecutive growth them to six nine sixteen twenty three twenty eight thirty five forty five. We had a forty five million dollars a year in our in our eighth year and everything was going gray. And then we had our first down year and year nine. We had to donors one who had given five million their company laid off ten thousand employees. The other donor, another donor in Virginia, his stock that he'd been giving us tanked thirty or forty percent, and they just paused and we we had our first down year. We couldn't repeat the not only could we not grow for the ninth time in a row, we shrunk and it felt terrible to to serve. Almost two hundred thousand people less than we had the year before, and I had an extra central crisis, and I tried to bring on a started CEO search and step aside CEO and maybe do something else with the Oregon. Eventually my my team just encouraged me to take a month off and I, I took a month off with my family and came back not wanting to do anything else and really wanting to solve the problem and look for that next s curve of growth. And I realized that the biggest problem with our organization is that we had we had no repeatability. It was a million one time gifts. Really. It was people buying one well or doing one birthday for charity water or giving one hundred dollars or one hundred thousand dollars once. And I came back and got really excited about building a subscription program for good kind of like a Netflix or Spotify, or or a dropbox where instead of us receiving the value of music or meet. Restorage every single month. One hundred percent of our monthly gifts would be passed on to people in need of.

"Hi, Jim Denison Denison form. And this is the daily article for Thursday, September, thirteenth, twenty eighteen normally apples fall launch of a new iphone. Another products would be leading the news, the feature that helps users limit their iphone us is getting special attention along with some ridicule. However, today is not a normal day, a national weather service meteorologist calls hurricane Florence, the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast. He's warning of quote the potential for unbelievable damage from wind storm surge and inland flooding with this storm more than ten million people are under storm watches and warnings. This morning yesterday we discussed theological implications of natural disasters like Florence today. Let's turn to practical biblical principles. The storm calls on us to respond in two significant ways. First, let's consider God's call to solidarity as I was watching the news coverage of Florence yesterday. The thought occurred. To me, I'm not monitoring this crisis, though. Someone I love is experiencing it. If members of my family lived on the Carolina coast, I would be much more emotionally engaged in this unfolding tragedy. Most of us are the same way were concerned for those who experience disaster. Then we go about our day subconsciously, grateful. This isn't happening to us and the case of Florence, we might even congratulate ourselves for not living in an area susceptible to hurricanes, though inland regions deal with tornadoes earthquakes wildfires mudslides and other natural disasters. So let's shift the narrative. If you had family living in the path of the storm, how would you feel? Well, the fact is you do. We're all descended from the same Denic parents all members of the same human race. If you live in America, you're part of the United States. In addition, you likely have family or friends who have family or friends in the path of the storm. It doesn't take much imagination to assume that out of the hundred thirty nine thousand plus. Readers of this daily article. Many are directly affected by this looming disaster. One of my sons married into a family with relatives, living North Carolina. As a result, I now have family members that will be directly impacted by the storm. If the storm struck ten years ago, it would have affected people who are now in my family. Only God knows if people in the path of Florence will be related to you. One day God's word calls us to share his love with those in need, whether we know them personally or not, where to be kind to one another tenderhearted according to thesis four thirty two seeking ways to bear one another's burdens collation six to as we weep with those who weep. Romans twelve fifteen. What does God the compassionate look like in action? Well, second, let's consider God's call to sacrifice solidarity with those who are suffering, leads to sacrifice on their behalf, the greater our solidarity, the greater our willingness to suffer for them. Consider three impera. Innis one is to pray REEs Howells was a Welsh minister, a great prayer warrior during the dark days of World War Two in England. He felt compelled by God to organize a company to pray with him for the nation.
