Reopening Mississippi: America's poorest state begins lifting lockdown

"Today AS DONALD TRUMP ENCOURAGES AMERICANS to go back to work our senior producer mightily row his God in. Us reporter Oliver Lock Land. What it looks like from the State of Mississippi which is meeting faster than most to reopen The white sand beaches of Baloch Mississippi draw millions of visitors each year. This is bill oxy. On American riverdale regimen law mingle with the world of today's endless amazing peninsula city tourist comfort the pristine coastline but stay for the casinos. The bars and the restaurants sharpen grits special. Great its beauty. Green has Gouda Cheese and it also and then they fantail shrimp way saute almond butter garlic and hot sauce. Being Wilkerson price works as a line cook and a trendy restaurant on rain street. That's all I know. I mean I've worked for over thirty five years. So that's all I've known I've done all different types of cooking also catering I've done you know country club up down fast food so I came to block and had my sister here and plus I had a good idea of the restaurants and the food industry. That was here. Mark was going well until the krona virus outbreak was declared a pandemic in March at first Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves resisted closing down businesses asking residents to trust in the power of prayer. Instead Your heavenly father. Please be with President Trump vice-president pence leadership team in Washington as they try to deal with this once in a lifetime and but in early April Governor Reeves finally ordered all casinos gyms salons shopping centers and restaurants to close put people likely suddenly out of work scrambling to feed his. Three sons. Totally took me out of work. I mean radio week week but us from week away to nothing but now just weeks later. The governor is reopening some businesses including restaurants putting people likely back to work even as Mississippi's death toll climbs from the Guardian. I'm mightily row today. In focus in the American south states like Mississippi are starting to reopen their economies. But how many lives will it cost Oliver Laughlin Bureau chief for The Guardian us? He's normally based in New Orleans Louisiana but earlier this week. He headed east into Mississippi at South West on Duffy Street. Then turn right on our side avenue. The joy from newly-installed. Luxy is not particularly long. It's only ninety miles long and you're driving along pre sparsely populated often empty rural high roads. The set by lush forest. That has kind of blamed in recent months. Empty Retail Parks. Big Strip malls. This huge lake. That you try lake pontchartrain. So you can see this huge false and like shimmering brave water and I really being one of the I need 'cause on the right pretty extraordinary. Why are you interested in reporting from Mississippi? So Mississippi is the poor state in America is also the hungriest stay in America. So there are issues with access to food with obesity and underlying health conditions aware in the top five in terms hypertension in terms of obesity. We're in the top five of many states in other areas. We're number six across the nation in the number of smokers per capita in Mississippi who say one of the states that was one of the slowest. Close up the Republican governor that Tate Reeves he issued a very liberal directive. Or what one would class as an essential business and this is a time when the neighboring state of Louisiana was really going through a severe crisis with corona virus and became one of the major hotspots Cross Louisiana. The numbers are simply staggering. It's scared me I'm telling you like screaming dislike. You're kidding me. The State has seen the fastest growth rates in the world. So I'll ever you watching Louisiana register more and more cases of covert nineteen. Meanwhile next door in Mississippi. It was more or less business as usual. Why was governor you so reluctant to ask people to stay home? I think what you've seen with. People like Governor Reeves and other governors in conservative states is a desire to follow the rhetoric. That is coming out of the White House. America wants to be open and Americans want to be open and at times. Donald Trump's rhetoric on what the correct responses with the corona virus has been incredibly confusing and difficult to follow. And so you kind of see scattergun approach across the country when it to who shut I on what time. So ultimately reeves and a host of other conservative governors across the. Us South didn't issue stay at home mortars until the decision not to close down. Basically became politically untenable. We are now at the point and Mississippi Cycle Drastic measures may be required. Today is the day. We are announcing a shelter in place order. It will go into effect Friday at five. Pm You mentioned that. Mississippi is one of the poorest states in the country. But where you headed. Boxy does have a pretty healthy economy. What are some of the industries in that area? Yes us she said. Block see is in one of the more prosperous areas of Mississippi. It's by the coast and so it's a pretty picturesque town out. Twenty five percent of its economy is driven by tourism so relatively strong fishing industry there. I am the LEXI. Hundreds of thousands come to my shores to play to shop and when the sun goes down the sky lights up with excitement am the Luxembourg when you drive into blocks see basically the first thing that you see is a line of huge hotels and casinos. And that's really what's kind of dominated industry about town for decades now. Now Open the President Casino at Rod. Water Beach Resort Luxy Mississippi misled Sir degree of prosperity. That is in contrast and much of Mississippi You visiting at the time of year where the weather is warming up starting to get nice and you spoke to one restaurant worker whose normally doing very brisk business this time of year before the pandemic. I was working him anywhere from forty to forty five hours a week. Can you tell me about the Wilkerson price? So works in. Price moved to block see a few years ago and really moved that tryon sure up his life. I through hard times and I try not looking future too much during hard times. I just lived for the day. He is about homelessness drug addiction and wanted to come to block sip because he saw a financial future for him and his three sons Twenty one year old eighteen year old and fourteen year old Two older ones work with me. The eighteen year old graduating this year. So He's been working a seafront restaurant there for the past couple of years and basically when I asked him how his life was doing before corona virus he basically said he turned a corner and that things are getting much better for him. We're don't really I mean Tucson's I work with full time. Also at the restaurant. Work at their dishwashers there. To my two older sons we all pitch in and well worth the other as a family to get everything paid so we actually have a very easy even though we do let weak. The weak but You that all three of US got laid off at the same time. How do they feel when he heard that his restaurant would be closing because of this pandemic he was absolutely devastated and even reflecting on a month after he heard the news hit up when he spoke to me about it? I I'd sales about four days leading up to it. We own something happening. I everybody's breaking off to lie song. The hand sanitizer a lot more watching their phones and listening to the news. I had a feeling something was getting ready to happen. We didn't quite know what it was and that last day. I can't I really can't explain excels totally lost. I just like everything worked out from underneath. It was rough basically his entire EB world and and the security that he built up for himself was taken away a with a single directive from his boss. Where actually I work. We're told pretty much. Go home until further notice. That's devastating. What did he do when he got the news? It's the moment Lee lost his job. He instantly tried to think about ways to improvise the day. I lost my job about laid off The next day where opportunity. Gomo along the way we need a lawn mower we had an opportunity to go mow lawn mower so I went out with the last few bucks I had in my pocket Martha Law that he went out and learn more and his sons come out with him to my loans for twenty bucks ago asking the ads do that and the increase realize. That really wasn't going to be enough to keep him going through. We've cut out snacks special all traits. We don't have them. You know We've just concentrate on breakfast lunch and dinner and just getting through the day. He turned up food banks to try and get food. He relied on handouts from liquid assets groups. Next thing I know someone reach out to me on facebook and I had a Bagel box of super big box. Pancake mix overseen big jar of Syrup And it was a great blessing. And there's even a few bucks for gas. Which was very touching is that time. I'd have no gas anywhere and he will say relied on the kindness of his neighbors. He told me invited into their homes to feed him and family. I I am neighbors. Come over one night wrapped in and the mother. Dennis speak English showing spoke broken Spanish. She had her daughter with me and I wrote said that they had a Turkey. I went over to their house and it was the biggest most beautiful spiral ham I'd ever seen. I told him I said this. Turkey is a ham. Do you want me. Just put it in my freezer for you know. Eat It you know. I got a little girl speaking for him. And that was a blessing and All through this and ask my son. Danny I always say. Don't bless me. He's spoils me so Lee out of work but obviously for no fault of his own. This is much bigger than him. Was there any kind of public assistance that he could access the oversee qualifies obtain food stamps? Now which is federal government program to low income Americans access to stamps to exchange for food. He's also eligible to claim unemployment as well but he's had a huge amount of difficulty accessing both those programs the department overseeing unemployment claims that Mississippi has been completely overwhelmed by this crisis on employment. I can't our that. I've been on the phone. What what not ring and ring for weeks on end now. I mean every Monday I subscribe for four five dollars ring and nothing happens. Nobody site before the public hit. Mississippi was receiving around a thousand new unemployment claims each week but since nineteen is happened now receiving about forty six thousand claims a week. Make no mistake. This is not only public health disaster. This is also an economic disaster in Mississippi and in this nation we understand that with the workload at the Department of Employment Security Being thirty x compared to what it was two weeks ago. I just ask you to be patient. Put yourself in those employees shoes. What about from the federal government on the trump administration was sending out stimulus checks to Americans around the country to did that make difference relief so Lee received his check from Donald Trump. Twelve hundred dollar. Check that every American is entitled to is part of the stimulus package that was passed by Congress. When you talk about a six point two trillion dollar bill and this will deliver urgently needed relief to our nation's families workers and businesses and That's what this is all about. Don't trump it's been pains to make sure that his name is on. Every one of those checks they sent out but basically lead hoped me now was essentially not enough for him. It's me day today. The past two weeks. I put food in the fridge. We've basically take taking care of day-to-day needs with that. I don't think it was narrow enough for now. I think we could have been something a little better. You know the beyond frustration. 'cause I'm not one looking for a handout. You know so. We made it clear. He's very ready to go back to work. But our customers ready to come back to his restaurant. So national polling is very very clear most people very much opposed the idea of reopening quickly and putting public health at risk overall. Most Americans do not support opening certain public spaces. This far as restaurants go very revealing a huge. Seventy eight percent of people polled. Do not feel comfortable eating out at a sit down restaurant right now on a casual visit down to the beach in exceed the took on Sunday. It's pretty clear that there are a number of people in South Mississippi who Very ready and willing to get the economy going again when you made your way to the beach. What was the mood like there? I'm what was the scene? So it was quite surreal to me to go from basically a deserted empty ghost town which is what looks. Ca's when you go down the main drag the beach where there were hundreds of people. Many of whom were observing social distancing and clearly just trying to get breath of fresh air basically an an escape from the oppression of the shutdown is doing to people on the other hand. There were quite a few people who were not observing social distancing. I Walk Past. That was offering jet ski rental. And there were about dozen people queuing up none of them wearing masks or very closely packed into each other. Just waiting to get on a Jetski. Basically and some people. I met who were very very skeptical about you. Know official statistics on the number of nineteen deaths. Skeptical about how lethal and dangerous. The virus actually is from from what I've read and heard a lot of of stories about Inflated numbers of infections and a lot of it has to do with no way that those are counted down a little bit You know skeptical. Skeptical of some government Studies and skeptical about what I work in. Essential Industry and and In transportation and is I don't know what any one person met has contracted you know corona virus. But you don't speak. Sixty thousand people have died from it in the US again. I'm skeptical that number saying that. It solely contributed to cover nineteenth so that was a pretty confronting thing to hear from people who were just so he turned up for a beach day. What do you think about it? I don't know like you know some days. They said over mass. Say not to wear masks as you know just like you said certain places are open and everybody's creativity in other places or not you're not allowed to do perp service so I just got. This is not making sense. Hate to say it. It's just you know people are GonNa die. It's GonNa Happen. It's not the best but is that from code. We do we really know that for back some of its elderly some of its respiratory two different things. I get back. Work seems shocking. So those are the beachgoers but you spoke to some healthcare workers to I take it very seriously I'm very concerned every day that I go into the hospital. I imagine they had a different perspective. Yeah so I spoke to Leah Campbell. Who is a physical therapist who works directly with nineteen patients in the area? So for the past month I've been working strictly on a covert unit. This is not in the ICU. This is at a patients are sick enough to be hospitalized but not sick enough to be on a ventilator. My responsibility is to help them move. Help them prevent secondary complications from staying in bed? Just help prepare them to to go back home. Hopefully that's the goal when I spoke to her about. I'd seen down at the beach. Tom Had I think she was shocked. I think she was angry. There's no excuse for it. I think it's incredibly selfish behavior. There's no there's there's no shortage of credible inaccurate information about this disease for people to educate themselves So in my mind people are making a willful decision to put other people at risk and I have seen the consequences of doing that. It makes me. It really honestly makes me angry when we come back. What a spike. In Mississippi's corona virus case numbers means for the decision to reopen the state. Well let's talk about those numbers Oliver. What has the case load? Been LIKE MISSISSIPPI. And what does the death toll there? So far. They've safer and seven thousand eight hundred cases in the state and around three hundred ten death time. We're talking what has become incredibly apparent in. Mississippi is the racial disparity when it comes to those who are dying from Cairo. Nineteen so hundred. Seventy six people have died from covered. Nineteen Mississippi or black. That's fifty seven percent of the death toll but they only make up. Thirty seven percent of the population and by the Mississippi was one of the first ten states in the nation to actually report deaths and cases based upon demographic data based upon race in other areas. And I'm proud of the Mississippi State Department of Health of being proactive and being that's really a trend that you're seeing across the United States is incredibly pronounced in places like Mississippi and Louisiana in the deep South not unfortunately seems to echo what we've seen here in the UK where Black Asian and ethnic minority populations have been particularly hard hit in this pandemic. But if you just look at the numbers and the death toll in Mississippi so far has been in the hundreds but the unemployment figures are on the many tens of thousands each week. Is there a case to be made that the governor is doing the right thing? I think it depends who you ask really the Acquis Bookstore of immediate aid casino. Shut down twelve thousand jobs just. I spiked the mayor of Baloch. See who basically said absolutely. Yes that is the right thing to do. He recited one of trump's catchphrases throughout this. Which is that. The Cure shouldn't be worse than the disease is going to be worse than than than the problem. Because I you know. The problem is addressed properly again with the plane reopened with the suggested. That feels comfortable in the amount of relaxing of guidelines that the governor has issued. We're actually going through. You know what we need in order to figure out how we can get back to a reasonable normal safe. Of course now come. We'll be normal. Guidance from the White House has been that state should be seeing a continued. Fourteen Day dropoff in the number of covered nineteen cases before they start reopening. And so what you're seeing in some states around the country the Rei opening places like California and a few other democratic locations are doing out there really observing that data before they make those moves. That's absolutely not the case in Mississippi. So last Friday Mississippi saw its highest number of diagnosed covered nineteen cases today the state of Mississippi. So it's largest single day increase in covert nineteen cases. We also solve our largest increase in death. Numbers and Monday refuted its second. Highest number of nineteen cases. Despite that governor has pushed ahead with trying to what does justification for doing that for for disregarding the numbers so governor reeves basically says that Mississippi is not comparable with other hotspots governor. Why are you reopening Mississippi at all when you haven't met the the White House guidelines a steady downward trajectory to strike wakes you? That's a great question Chris and and it's a fair question. What I would tell you is that you have to understand that. Mississippi is different than New York in Mississippi Is Different Than New Jersey. In those two instances and by the way my neighbor to the West was the same in Louisiana. They had a huge spike in cases over a very short period of time and then but Mississippi's not like that. What have seen this for the last thirty low in number of cases. That hasn't really peaked. Above three hundred. Three hundred fifty. He is suggesting that the guidance he has received directly from the White House. Is that those guidelines. The doctor burks others out there. Don't apply to Mississippi if you speak to people like lear who working on the front lines at this pandemic. I think they see it very very differently again. I think it's a reflection of the ideology of pudding the economy before public health. And I think that's irresponsible and I think it's unproductive to be honest if your if your goal is to get the economy up and running and healthy Then you need healthy people to make that economy run and this is not the way to go about it so she seems very upset at the government for not handling this better. What did he blame governor reeves or or president trump so? I asked a few times. The he blamed anybody what he was going through. And he was very reticent to blame anybody like saved on the best he could do. We've never really had to go through this before. So who do we have him a judge against for what how he's handled it? You know I am. He's deeply religious and said that he relied on his faith to get him free. This time he also said the He's incredibly thankful for the charity that he's received throughout the pandemic but he was very reluctant to talk about what the government owed him and what he should be entitled to as a citizen when you spoke to League governor reason started to ease some restrictions on what kinds of businesses could we was beginning to pick up shifts at his restaurant again. They could serve customers. Takeout and as of today restaurants in Mississippi conserved dine in customers to what are the new measures taking effect in the state? They try to get the economy running again. The Mississippi is moving very quickly to try and reopen. Say They are now gathering twenty people out in the open. Air The opening up restaurants that have to be deep cleaned before that opened and work at fifty percent capacity. They're putting up public parks and retail services as well so it's one of those states that's moving very quickly towards ripening when you can trust what you're seeing even states like California which also moving towards reopening but doing it on a much more measured pace. Are these measures enough? I was worried about his safety. I think Lee he understands the risks. Lee reads the news. He understands absolutely what's going on but at the same time. He says the benefits to going back to work outweigh the risks because he needs the money to support his family. Longest obeys by the rules. You know the social distancing. I believe we'll be right. I mean some of us have to get back to work. We haven't mailed dead. Get through to unemployment or food stamps and I believe some of US need to get back to work me personally. I don't I don't want I don't want on appointment. I don't want to stamps. I don't like Oh hand its own my own worried. When you're going in is still the pandemic still no immunity to this virus? Vaccine experts questioning. The you know going back to soon could lead to another spike in in infections. You're worrying about new guy back. I don't have time to worry about that. I take my family. I mean really. That's how I look at it. I just have to lay my faith in God and I'm not worried about it. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure whether it's not still playing on his mind a little bit but what other people say to you is. This is not a choice that people should be forced to make and that is unfair. The poor workers likely you have already been living paycheck to paycheck who are relying on their employees to basically keep that livelihoods going should be forced into choosing between putting their personal and the family's health at risk and going back and taking money for job that was earlier this week that even trump is pushing nationwide to get states to reopen their economies. His administration is basically privately projecting that this is going to increase the death toll across the country so the death toll could reach around three thousand per day by the beginning of June which is higher than the number of that we have at the moment which is one thousand seven hundred and fifty so I think there is definitely an ben at some levels of government that this push to reopen is essentially going to cause more deaths Oliver. Thank you so much holidays. Piece on reopening Mississippi will be out in the Observer. This Sunday you can follow all of his reporting at the Guardian Dot. That's it for today.

COVID-19: What You Need to Know

37:17 min | 4 months ago

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

"In this is an ABC news special covid. Nineteen what you need to know here is ABC. News correspondent Katersky as each state has now taken at least a step toward easing restrictions meant to contain the corona virus. We're getting a clearer. Picture of communities have been most affected. It's lower income communities and communities of color particularly in New York City where twenty seven percent of people in those neighborhoods tested positive for coronavirus. Antibodies compared to nineteen percent of the general citywide population. The spread is continuing in those communities. And that's where the new cases are coming. Andrew Cuomo said today. The gap is even wider in certain parts of the Bronx and Brooklyn where more than forty percent of. The people have the antibodies. That's where the cases coming from. That's where the new hospitalizations coming from. That's going into the hospital system. That's where you're going to see the highest number of deaths. He said the state would begin. A public health education campaign in housing projects and distribute masks and hand sanitizer getting the P. p. e. into the community getting the hand sanitizer into the community explaining social distancing. And why that's so important and explain how this virus spreads its public health education effort to those who live in public housing. This is overdue. The density makes social distancing difficult and leaves tenants vulnerable this week. Abc News is offering special coverage of the disproportionate impact of Corona virus on Black Hispanic and indigenous Americans in a series called a nation divided. Ju- Brown joins US FROM JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE ALLIANCE IN CHICAGO. Why is this virus hitting communities of color so hard you know Cova crisis just unveils? Horrible practice that we've experienced really for decades in this country which has been the sabotage of our basic quality of life institutions food production delivery systems health care education housing economic development So those things that many Americans take for granted. We often have to fight and scratch for so. This crisis really exposes our country's lack of willingness to address these issues. How does that play where you are in Chicago? Going to pandemic really a hit. We started seek death with around the country is Chicago today. Early thirty percent of the population we would seventy percent of the deaths and while this is happening Many of our hospitals were on the brink of closing such as Mercy Hospital. We've already lost. Michael Reese Hospital in virtually every other hospital in the black community has been starved to the point of really minimum capacity but at me when the pandemic hit many of our people who have pre existing conditions. We go to the hospital with sent back home right. I HAVE FAMILY FAMILY MEMBER. Who would sit back home from the Emergency Room? Three times and died. What's causing these gaps and disparities? Will you know This African proverb that says the truth. The simple complicated is a lot and I think at some point. We have to realize that America has never dealt with her ugly which is a baseless hatred for Black Brown indigenous families. It's to tional. Racism is the reason institutional. Racism is at play so people going to say that black people get Kobe because we are not listening right while ignoring a white families that are storming the state capital in Michigan or doing protest all over the country. And they're not social distancing we are getting covert because we don't have health we are getting covert because we're going to the high school in sending us home and so I think at the federal level and at the local level what we must have from people is the first thing humility understanding that you not better than at mother who's a high school graduate who works at Walmart that that mother is working just as hard as you to make the future for her baby. Do you think the clamor for reopening would be different if it weren't communities of color that are now the source of the most new cove infections. I definitely believe that's that's a major part of it at once. People realize that is Black Brown indigenous folks. That are getting sick. They're getting sick. The most sensitive importance has gone down a great deal. We had a very critical moment. Where we see America's response to life or death leads has not changed so institutionalized level loveless nece is alive and well and we but we have a moment an opportunity to change it t- to Brown of journey for Justice Alliance in Chicago here in New York. The Transit Authority is testing ultraviolet. Light to disinfect. Subways buses and commuter trains. It comes after Dr David Brenner. At Columbia University confirmed UV. Light does kill the corona virus so this may have application beyond public transportation. Dr Brenner is with us now. Known for quite a while. Ultraviolet light is a natural disinfectant. How's it applying to this global pandemic? You're absolutely right and it's been known since the eighteen ninety s that. Uv light is good at killing microbes bacteria and viruses both over the years. It's been used quite a lot and it's been used for example in Disinfecting surgical operating theatres overnight. The background to the use of conventional Jim Asylum. Uv light is that it's a potential health hazard so in unoccupied space. You can't directly. Shine it on On people because it has potential issues for the skin potential issues for the I one of the ways round that is is is to do the The decontamination where people around and that for example is what they are doing of the MTA. Another approach is one that we're taking is to look at a different type of ultraviolet light this called fire. Uv light and fire VC. Light is just as effective kidding. bacteria and viruses but doesn't share the health hazards says with Conventional Jeremy Seidel Unite. So that could then apply to a movie theater. A Broadway theatre peed it on and suddenly the room is virus free. Well yes the idea is. You would apply to situations Web PEOPLE ARE OCCUPYING SPACES. And of course an infinite number of those restaurants offices subways. It's not quite the way you described. It's not gonNA turn it on and immediately all the viruses disappeared. The picture we have at least is that In in an occupied room with a group of People. Shall we say that we start with no virus in that room? The people in that room and people stop coughing and sneezing and and and even talking the amount of virus potentially in that room is steadily. Go into Increase and so there's going to be an ambient level of virus in that room That's really what we want to To to to do battle with the ambient level of Virus in an unoccupied space bitter restaurant or an office that were trying to lower as much as we possibly can. How IS THE TECHNOLOGY? Harnessed the lamps. The fire you'd see lamps January going to on continuously at at a at a low level the whole time and essentially what it's doing is preventing that virus from from dividing and multiplying and which is of course the big issue. It feels like a game changer. Well we hope it is. I mean there. There are not many technologies or techniques out there for preventing the transmission of virus on one person to another in in a in a public setting most of most of the research that I know that's going on and for example is is in vaccination which is of course Trying to prevent the body from responding to the virus once once. It's inside them. What we're trying to do is to kill the virus before it gets inside them. David Brenner at Columbia University. Irving Medical Center FEMA said social distancing measures established during the coronavirus pandemic have driven down childhood vaccination rates in Connecticut the CDC noted a similar trend in Michigan where coverage with all recommended vaccines declined. Pediatric vaccination rates have fallen to New York City. Where there was a forty two percent drop children two years or younger and a ninety one percent drop in children to immunizations require in person visits to a doctor so the belief is this is not a trend toward anti vaccination but rather parents skipping routine appointments out of fear they or their kids will contract covid nineteen office the CDC said there will have to be some accommodation so kids. Don't get sick from other diseases in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. We also heard today about the effectiveness of wearing masks. Governor Cuomo noted frontline workers nurses doctors transit workers. Police officers all wear masks and all have a lower infection rate than the general public. Cuomo said those surgical masks work. I'm Aaron Katersky. Now over to amy robot. Thanks Erin with me. Now is Dr Jen. We're now hearing about these sailors right. Who are testing positive for covid nineteen after reportedly recovering from covid nineteen. So what do we know about recovery and then potentially reinfection and it's not just the sailors. Amy There's new data just out of the Korean. Cdc On the same topic so let's take a look at what we know right now. First of all remember when you talk about the testing there is no such thing as any diagnostic test. That is one hundred percent perfect all the time. The nasal swab which is that that we use to diagnose active infection can have both false positives and false negatives and these results can be affected by a number of factors first of all the method of how the test is actually done when it's done in the course of illness whether it's done too soon or too late it can be contaminated which can lead to a false positive and then the storage time. The time that elapsed from when the culture is done to win. It's actually process all of that can affect the results all right so when someone test positive and then they recover and then test positive again. What could cause that swell so there are a couple of leading theories right now number one if you if you really consider this course when they are tested the middle time and they get a negative here the theories first of all. Is there such a thing as a false negative which of course and we've said can be the case because they're shedding virus and the test positive again down? The road doesn't necessarily mean that they're contagious or infectious. That's just out of the the Korean. Cdc Data and it's really unlikely that someone can be reinfected with the same strain. We think that's just a basic premise of medicine. All right what are the unknowns? At this point we'll right now. We don't know how long someone who has been infected and positive. Can shed the virus this Korean. Cdc data suggests anywhere from eight to eighty two days. Amy after the initially have symptoms. We don't think that someone who sheds virus any longer is infectious but still we need a lot more study on that and we also don't know if someone who's completely recovered can then be reinfected with another strain again. We think this is unlikely but right now there are multiple strains exactly right now. We still need to know for sure. Okay Dr. Jen will be back later in. The show will now with all fifty states partially open. It is up to those governors to determine the best path forward in the wake of Covid nineteen and here to discuss his strategy to get the state of Mississippi out of this health and economic crisis is governor Tate Reeves Governor Reeves. Thanks for being with us and I know in the past few weeks. You have allowed some businesses to reopen with certain restrictions restaurants gyms barbershops and most recently tattoo parlors. How did you make those determinations and tell us how it's going in every decision that we've made we have to recognize and realize that we have a public health crisis in this state and in this country law at the same time we have an economic crisis and that's the way in which we approached every single decision that we have made? We've let the data dry art decision. Making we know for a fact for instance in Mississippi that while we have eleven thousand seven hundred four cases right now. It took twenty three days for those cases to double. And if you look at an ultimate goal of flattening the curve in protecting your healthcare system what we've seen over the last thirty days for instance on hospitalizations our lowest number of hospitalizations over those thirty days was four hundred. Our highest was four hundred fifty four our total number of ICU. Beds over that time period was a hundred thirty one was the lowest one hundred. Seventy two was the highest. And if you look at ventilator us for instance sixty seven Mississippi wrong ventilators the lowest number in the last thirty days eighty-seven seven at the highest. And so I think when you look at that data and you look at the numbers. Mississippi is the epitome of having flattened to curb and we did so ensuring that we were successful competition our ultimate goal which is to make sure that every single Mississippi and that could get better with quality care received that quality care. And so far we've been able to be safety always first governor res Reeves but of course the economic health of your state is of utmost importance to tell us what business has been like for those establishments that have been able to reopen just as a reminder the week before we received our first case we had less than one thousand Mississippi and file for unemployment insurance over last eight weeks. We've had two hundred and twenty thousand mississippians foul unemployment insurance and that is unbelievable numbers that we have seen since the Great Depression in our state and so when you look at the real. Economic damage has been done. It is real and it is huge. That is the reason that we have to get our economy back going again. We have to reopen. We've done so a safe responsible way. Every step of the way when we've opened new industries we have given guidelines that we've encouraged. Our businesses are small businesses in our people to adhere to and I will tell you that so proud of my constituents and so proud of my fellow. Mississippi's because they've done just that they've here. We haven't seen him major spike. In cases in fact if anything the cases have gone down slightly and so we we're able to not only protect the lives of our mississippians. We can protect the livelihood at the same time. And that's the ultimate goal and according to some data from the Mississippi State Department of Health Corona virus as you know has been disproportionately affecting African Americans in your state. Why do you think that disparity exist? And what are you doing to combat it? Well what I would tell you is ultimately it will be the scientists Newell Determined exactly why that has been the case. There appears certainly that those with pre existing conditions that the krona viruses particularly cruel to those who have hypertension and heart disease and diabetes and obesity. It is certainly more cruel to those who are in our older if you look at the five hundred fifty four deaths in Mississippi for instance. Four hundred eighty four of those have been in individuals who are over the age of sixty every single one. Another tragic but that is what the data suggests right now. One of the things that we've been trying to do to protect our African American population is we've worked very hard to get as much information as much education out those communities we worked with our African American mayor we work with a famous Mississippi into provide. Psa's folks like famous blues singers or Morgan Freeman or manning for instance have been kind enough to do as for us. We try to simulate information to all of our communities when it comes to the elderly. We're currently undergoing a plan to test every single resident in every long term care facility in our state and test every single employee. That's about twenty seven thousand five hundred combined and it's a it's a monumental task but it's one we're committed to. We're going to get it done over two week period. We're about halfway through that right now. All right and you are allowing. This is a big headline casinos in Mississippi to reopen. Starting tomorrow talk about the safety. Guidelines are implementing to avoid spreading the virus in those areas. Well we we significant safety guidelines with respect to casinos in every other industry. We're having every single employee is going to be communicated with as they come into work. They're going to be asked the questions that need to be asser. Temperatures GOING TO BE TAKEN. Same thing is true of every single guest that comes into the facility. We are also requiring social distancing. God live where you won't have for instance slot machine that is less than six feet apart. We're reducing the number of people that can play Table Games so for instance that table will allow three individuals one person in the middle to on the very far end to play a particular table game and so the industry has worked very hard to make sure it's been saying for their customers and their employees. And we're we're looking forward to getting all of our business and industry back operational and functional because every single business is essential to whom ever owned it into whomever works there. It helps them provide food for their families. That's right in speaking of essential businesses. I know your state. Health Department is investigating a growing number of covid nineteen cases in counties with meat processing plants. And we've heard from some poultry plant workers that say they are not being told when someone at their plant has tested positive and they say they're not getting paid if they get. Cova didn't have to stay home. What can you do as governor to protect these plant workers well till you? We have certainly seen rising number of cases in certain counties. Have a large number of of meat facilities. We have sin from Mississippi State Department of Health actually while we reopened the entire state a couple of weeks ago we actually have additional guidelines in place for five different counties most of widgery in east central Mississippi most of which do have a large number of meat processing facilities we put guidelines in place to ensure that everyone in those communities where mass whether they're going to work out in public. We've also put in place to ensure that every employee is is it Lee screened as I come into the facility and we also are working in sending facilities to make sure that the boys are protected Governor Tate Reeves. Thank you for being with us for having me today up next here. Dr John Ashton with some new information on the COVID nineteen pandemic answering the questions. You have and then kids and screens making sure. Our children are not falling behind when it comes to learning when we come back. There's not a person in America who hasn't been impacted in some way by the corona virus pandemic but at every community. There are pockets of people who suiting every day Monday last seven district. These are America's essential workers the people who are keeping our world moving to drop off produce for one of our tenants and now a new podcast from ABC News. You're going to hear from them in their own words but there's always a risk that could bring this to my kids or my husband right parents. This is the essentials inside the curve. Listen on Apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. Dr Jen Ashton is back now with the deep dive on a number of your various Pacific Coronavirus. Questions there's never been a shortage of doctrine. So we're very happy. You're here with US first question. Can you explain the four phases of a vaccine trial? Well we've heard about this before because again there's this mad rush to develop in warp speed the vaccine but we can't cut certain steps so basically there are three main phases clinical phases and trials. That have to go on to develop a vaccine you can think of them all as evaluating safety and efficacy and in greater numbers as we go along so stay. Phase one. Very small numbers safety and efficacy than you broaden those numbers to a couple of hundred and phase two phase three thousands and again. You're looking at short term safety. Long term safety and efficacy across various populations. All right next question. Is there any specific reason why there have been so many tests that have false negative results so again we opened with this? We have to remember. First of all every test can have false positives and false negatives when you talk about false negatives for that's the nasal swab diagnose active infection if it's not done properly if the person isn't shouting enough virus because remember the way it's done is to amplify virus in the lab if it's not processed in a timely manner all of those things can give a false negative and you know this is something we have to remember. There's no such thing as a one hundred percent accurate test when you're looking for an infectious disease. Okay yeah very important to remember next question as more states up. Is it safe to let kids play contact sports? You know. I hope so because my daughter plays a contact sport at the collegiate level. But here's what we know right now. There was a recent publication in Jama just out a few days ago really from the American College of Cardiology ironically. And they're council on Sports Physiology. Because we know that Cova nineteen can affect the heart even in younger athletes and so they really delineate. When can you go back to exercise or contact sports competition and basically they're saying for mild symptoms no hospitalization at least two weeks and if someone is hospitalized and they need more formal evaluation to assess their heart in their heart function but there is obviously the risk of getting infected or spreading the infection with close contact sport? So again they they say with social distancing. That's pretty hard when you play sports like my daughter Ice Hockey. You're right up in there and spit flying everywhere or so. So that's TVD right. We'll have to see what that's right. I mean it is important to remember that this age group younger students. Younger children are at lower risk. But as we've covered before that does not mean zero risk so they still do need protection and some kind of precautions but that is being figured out literally as we speak all right. Dr Jen Ashton. Thank you so much and you can submit your questions to Dr Jen on her instagram. At Dr J. Ashton well as the school year comes to a close and summer activities have been canceled. Many parents are concerned that the summer will not lessen the amount of screen time. Their kids are getting so here to talk about prioritizing quality screen time is Emmy Award winning Creator and executive producer of shows like Daniel. Tiger's neighborhood and blue's clues we have Angela Santomero with US Angela. Thanks so much for joining us. We certainly appreciate it and we all know now more than ever. Our kids are using screens for everything for school for recreation for connecting with their friends and family. What is too much screen time in these times? You know it's such a complicated question. I base everything on the quality of the media. You know we always talk about that. We're feeding our kids brains with the media that they're consuming just like we're feeding their bodies with the food that we're giving them and so the idea of eating too much broccoli isn't thing so the idea of consuming really good quality media is also something that we have to take into consideration that we know what to look for that. We know what our kids are getting out of it that we can also balance it right that an hour of screen. Time is an hour of off screen time and that is the hope. Whenever we're creating shows is that we're viewing in doing right. We're inspiring kids by the media that we have to go outside and change the world at a social distance space of course but the idea that we're getting them up and moving and reading and practicing some kindergarten readiness skills doing dramatic play. If they're younger you know all of these things that they get their impassioned by with regard to the media and I think as parents were trying to do all of those things you just listed but you're the expert in children's educational programming. Tell US why quality media still is very important matters quite a bit in these times. You know it's all about the research you know everything that we're talking about in that we're learning during this time that it's really all based in the fact that there's research that's gone on kids. Media approve that cans not only enjoy the shows. We want them to understand and enjoy everything. But also that they're learning what we intend for them to learn so we do at nine-story none of research based programs not only on the formative level with kids all the time to prove that were teaching kids to read that were teaching the kindergarten readiness skills but also their longitudinal studies that prove from the University of Pennsylvania from University of Texas Alabama. That we are doing moving the needle with these programs so for super y you learning to read when you're watching super knowing that you can use the materials that we have the some of the Co view and if we can knock don't guilty about some of these quality programs that we're putting our kids in front of knowing that we're inspiring them to be able to then put out maybe some books that are easy for them to pick up and read or write their own ending to a story. You don't just being creative right now. With how the media is impacting them. Can you talk to us about using media verses letting it use us? I love that right. Especially in the in the right with all of the on demand programming. We can actually choose the shows that our kids with the most interested in choose certain episodes of our kids are afraid of the dark if our kids are getting nervous about something. There's a ton of Daniel Tiger strategies that we could be choosing a sharing episode that say and then having a conversation about it and we also talk about you. Know these are your kids friends and are they. Let's make sure first of all they're your friends that you want for your chance that if you open the living room if you open the front door that literally these are kids. You'd want to have over for dinner. So is Daniel Tiger. Somebody like that and be okay with talking about it. What would Daniel do you know? Having those conversations about media only enhances what are concerned learning from it and right now you know we really want to continue to enhance our vocabulary. We WanNa really try to motivate them to do things that they're excited about doing whether it's playing the piano just to play whether it's picking up bucks whether it's writing so this is the kind of thing where we're worried about the summer slump. We're worried about what we can be doing. And we can use educational media to do that. Well I mean it's incredible what you've been able to create and we certainly have parents. Thank you for all that you've done. Angeles and Santo. Thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you so much. Abc News launching across all of our platforms three days examining this health crisis along racial and socioeconomic lines according to the CDC Latinos represent more than a quarter of all cove nineteen deaths although the account for only eighteen percent of the population and getting vital information out to Spanish. Speaking members of the community is key morning anchor at our. Abc affiliate W. F. TV Channel Nine in central Florida. Nancy Alvarez is here to talk about her efforts and Nancy. Thank you so much for being with US tonight. No people from your community turn to you for help because they say there's been a huge lack of outreach provided to Hispanic communities. Can you tell us a little bit more about what you're hearing what you're seeing down there in central Florida? Well thank you so much for having me to talk about a subject that so important in most of my heart out. He's observations really came early on in the pandemic from people in the trenches local religious leaders advocates in the Hispanic community. Who will wondering out loud why we were hearing a more Spanish. Being spoken of these regular news conferences that are county was holding to update us on the pandemic. We had a situation where a viewer actually reached out to me at our TV station to tell me that she was confused because she called the Spanish line at the local health permits and the mentioned on the testing criteria was wrong. It was actually outdated and that was because of the third party contractor that the county was using hotline so that caused confusion there to give you an example. We have a community here in central Florida at Orange County of about sixty thousand people since eighty percent are Hispanic then speak English but many don't ending need as critical information and this really wasn't just about words from the beginning so there wasn't any testing being conducted early on anywhere near this community. There was a lot of concern about that. I'm so happy to have this platform you that we've really come a long way here in Orlando Orange County Since March when all of this started do hear more Spanish now at our news conferences. Mobile testing did come to that community. That I just described to you and just to give you an example. This is pretty cool recently. The city of Orlando a sent out some information on testing right and they sent out to local reporters in the public and it was this little snippets that you could share on social media about testing criteria. Where when it was going to happen and that information was sent out in English Sandwich Creole Portuguese and Vietnamese. So we certainly come a long way in just a couple of months. Yeah you certainly have it. I know you're a large part of that. You speak Spanish. You decided to take matters into your own hands. Tell us what you did. Well I do mourn show here at the avoidability WWL TV as you mentioned And after our morning show of producers in started doing these short recaps of our top stories in Spanish and we put them out on Social Media. We have on our website of TV DOT COM. We actually have a whole section there and in Spanish for our viewers to get information and we really just did this to enhance the work. That's already done by so many hard working journalists here in central Florida who are bilingual. And they're working really really hard to reach this community so it was just one more thing that we could do to really help support now. That's fantastic and I know that there's an area. In central Florida that saw a huge influx of Puerto Ricans who wanted to rebuild their lives after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. So how are they dealing with experiencing the effects of pandemic so glad you asked me about them because really the big question is who are we talking about right? Who are we saying? You need of this information in my community. For example we have so many families that are in transition not just Puerto Ricans. It's families who recently drive here from Venezuela of fleeing the deal that country and then again those thousands of families who fled Rico Hurricane Maria in two thousand seventeen and then more recently the earthquakes that they had there on the island so imagine going through that hurricane earth place and now this panic These are families that are working really hard. They have jobs here. They're working to assimilate their kids and yes. They are working to learn English. They are but they just need a minute. They need some time because they haven't been here that long and if something like this of public health crisis occurs during this transition time for them. It is in the best interest really of our entire community. These families are informed and that they're safe and this can't be reactive. It has to be proactive. It has to be part of an overall emergency response in the best interest of all of us. That makes perfect sense now. I want to ask you just bottom line. What INFORMATION NANCY? Do you want people to walk away with now? Well I will just ask that emergency managers city and county leaders all over this country just pause and really take a look at the diversity in the regions that they're in charge of that they get creative in how to reach them that they use social media If you have a large Haitian community for example like we here in Central and south Florida. Are you giving out information on testing in creole for example in Spanish and this really just isn't for government leaders? You were talking about how we're winning economy states all across this country business owners as they get ready to reopen. Are you issued safety protocols? In languages all of your employees will understand as for the media. Get into those communities cannot tell her stories if a news conference is being streamed on your station website or facebook page and they they veer into Spanish. Don't cut the feed keep it going getting information to these communities in times like this is just really critical first and foremost because these are families with children. These are human beings that's number one that also because it really will ensure the safety of everyone in terms like this. That's right it's not about I. It's about us for all in this together Nancy Alvarez. Thanks for this huge huge eye-opener that we all needed to hear thank you. We appreciate your time thank you. We are back now. With our focus on educators revolutionizing classroom study in the midst of pandemic. Let's meet the North Carolina Technology professor taking teaching to the next virtual level. I'm Stephen King. I'm a professor of emerging technologies at the husband School of Journalism and media and Keenan flagler business school. I teach emerging technologies which is augmented reality virtual reality artificial intelligence and how do we leverage and use those to reach new audiences and reach people in different ways. Virtuality allows people to be transported to another time or place for our students. They put on the headset each week for class and they are transported into the VR classroom. This Three D. space has digital whiteboards. It has screen. It has all the things that are classroom is used to having but it just hasn't been a virtual in our in person. Classes more traditionally on campus students come in and out of my office and I feel like I have this relationship where they can bring ideas to me. We can coach and work through them. Now that we're remote that's a lot different. We're trying to find ways to use technology to help us to continue to bring students and teachers together. When we found out that the university was going to move all of its classes online. I knew this is the time to try things out but to do this virtual reality. It was entirely new something that I had not done. I built three D. environments before but never an online learning experience. So we'RE GONNA LEARN ABOUT AUGMENTED REALITY. Today we're going to talk about the social interactions and see how that goes each week. We gathered in my virtual classroom that I was able to build and customize specifically for our class when decided to mail the go headset to our house. I bragged about it to my family. My friends because who else gets to go to class and virtual reality space rather than zoom or something unique thing about virtual reality is that helped us go from this very serious. Komen reality that we're living in to get all the students back into the classroom and thinking about how we were going to collaborate together very cool art. Thanks to Stephen King and his students in all the educators out there working so hard to make a difference and we're going to turn to Dr John Ashton for her final thought. So I just love that story amy You know I was thinking about lessons that I learned in healing from tragedy that that struck my family and it reminded me of the importance of keeping routine so I wanted to share that as my prescription of the day because what I learned from mental health experts resent when you deal with a world that's just been rocked and changed in the most fundamental way from top down and bottom up it's critically important to restore some routine even if it's a new routine which is what a lot of us are dealing with now in our new normal to show us that. Not Everything in life has been exploded there. There is something that you can count on day by day so now as the weather starts to get nice and people start to go out whether it's your routine of cleaning meditating than connecting with people socially or going for a walk. I know you daily routine of of your run. It's so important it's so therapeutic and so the I think we all need to keep batum. I love that you always feel better afterwards. Yeah pretty different. We have a new normal. Yes we do Dr Jan. Thank you so much. And that's our program for today. I made me robot. Thanks for listening. If keeping up with the news feels like it's become a chore.

The Mississippi Coast

"We're visiting the coastline of Mississippi for today's episode in the family vacation. The temperate climate along with astounding natural beauty makes a secret Coast a year-round destination off Milton cigar from Coastal Mississippi's our special guest episode 25 starts right now. Welcome to the family vacationer with Rob and Danny go to Cast for families on the Move. Hey friends, I'm Rob and I'm Danny and this is episode 25 of the family vacationer. You know, when we first set out to do this episode we were censoring it on Biloxi off of that city has to offer we quickly realize there's so much more to the coastline of Mississippi and quite frankly. That's why we're doing these shows going in-depth on these places to learn more about them even areas of the country that we think we know I thought I knew about the coastline there. I thought that was it was Biloxi, but there's so much more there from world-class gaming Championship golf boating fishing kayaking museums festivals and 26 miles of beautiful beaches. So this area has a ton to offer, right? It does know rob. You have been to Biloxi right? That is true been several times, you know my experience with the coastline Mississippi was Biloxi. I went for the first time I think in nineteen ninety eight. I was there for two weeks with my job at the time and log I was surprised then Beau Rivage I think was pretty new. I mean it was Las Vegas-style. It was a beautiful hotel beautiful Casino area the everything you would expect the buffets the restaurants and then when I went back gosh, that was probably 2 or 3 weeks before Katrina. There were more things that were opened. It looked vastly different than it did in nineteen. Ninety eight thousand. I think the the Hard Rock was scheduled to open actually the night that Katrina hit and so yeah, so all that happened in the area rebounded from that and we came through from Texas. I think it was a soccer trip and we stopped in Biloxi and I was blown away. I mean the Hard Rock had opened at that point. It was beautiful. I mean the whole area they've done a really good job and making it user-friendly and family-friendly and all it does have the casino areas and stuff that it's just it's a beautiful area. I know you Sports is a big deal in the Biloxi area. So they have those fields and and kind of things birth. For for traveling Sports families. It's it's a great area. So I'm very excited to talk about it today. Have you been down? No, I've not been there. Okay, but you know, you really think about Biloxi and move people think casinos automatic right? But is that your take on it? And you've already mentioned a Las Vegas feel to it or is there a lot more to the area? Well the times that I had been off and the two weeks that we were there we were doing some various things that got us out in the community. So we got to see a different side of Biloxi, but if you're there for a short time, yeah, it's going to feel it's going to feel like Vegas if they yes. We're on the coast somewhere. I mean it's it does have the casino feel but but they still do a good job of having activities for everyone and then beyond Biloxi, there are other Beach areas in the sippy that are exciting to tourists. So to speak more about the Mississippi Coast. Let's bring in Milton segarra Milton has a certified destination management executive designation and a CEO of coastal massage. To be formally known as visit Mississippi Gulf Coast Milton has thirty years of experience and tourism Corporate America and government. He served on the destinations International Board of Directors for three years, and now a trustee of that same board which directs the Affairs of the foundation and determines policy. He's also a director-at-large on the United States travel Association board of directors and the Mississippi tourism Association prior to his current position with Coastal, Mississippi Milton served as president and CEO of meat Puerto Rico the nonprofit that promotes Puerto Rico as a premier travel and meeting destination Milton. Thanks so much for being on the show. Welcome. Thank you so much for all it's a pleasure to be with you and Danny. Thank you so much. Yeah, we really appreciate it. Really quick question here. What makes Biloxi and the Mississippi Coast. I'm in a place that family should consider when they schedule their family vacations. That's a great question Danny and also Mississippi. Let me tell you is the perfect destination for family about ages, you know, the secret goes climate, you know that the temperature along with our outstanding natural boundary makes the perfect year-round destination. It's it's amazing. When you see families coming to one of our beaches or part of or any of the other attractions that we have hotels venues seems open areas that we have. They really have a great time, you know, they they can select from just being outside in direct contact with our nature or Spain a month weekend or time in one of our beautiful hotels casinos and all the attractions that we can offer all in this beautiful surrounding and what people likes is that took in a radius of four or five hours that that could take you close to Atlanta and close to Houston up to the north of Alabama and the panhandle of Florida Panhandle we get tremendous job. Amount of visitors and you see the increase in the last couple of years which more and more families are taking quick trips, especially after the last a situation with the pandemic. We're stealing more families coming spending quality time in in a in a setting that and this is why people like it it's equally exciting and equally relaxing and we can give you a call if you want to come and have a great time and exciting time. This is the place if you want to come with your family just to relax we can offer that experience as well. Great. Now it hurts you mentioned the name DeCicco coast and then to go how did it get the name the secret Coast. Well when I started here a little bit more than three years ago. I so how much love the local communities and the visitors actually they have for for this destination for this experience to the fact of the matter is that we were not well known for that. So we went to the visitors but also dead. We went to the local communities and we did extensive research and it was amazing to see the the people that when they came and visit Coastal Mississippi at that time people who were were relating to or referring to us as the Mississippi Gulf Coast. They said oh my goodness. I didn't know you have all of this. I didn't know you have so many casinos. I didn't know you have this you have that so it was like a sieve it. So would you just use what people had in mind what they thought about us? They didn't know about all the museums and the facilities and the family opportunities that we can offer from from museums to change places to go and and play with the family and soon. We'll have a an aquarium and it was a secret. So we said, you know what that's it wears a secret code and we want to make sure that we tell the story and we're home soon will no longer be a secret. But in the mean time, we're closed on Mississippi the secret goes and that's how it came about from from the consumers and from the community. It was not a marketing thing ma'am. That Community engagement and customer engagement to find out exactly what they think what they thought about us interesting. Well, I know when I think of the Mississippi Coast and in mind experience alexys kind of the first thing that comes to mind but as we were doing research we talked about this as we opened the show some of the other communities in the area. I have a lot to offer. Can you talk about some of those communities outside of black people might not know about oh absolutely. Let me tell you a Biloxi. It's a beautiful city. And one thing that that you will see across the coast and we are 12:00 beautiful communities from the Louisiana Sportsline all the way down to the Alabama state line beautiful communities, but obviously Biloxi was known as the capital efficient capital of the world a few years ago. We have most of our gaming gaming attractions and hotels in Biloxi, but the good thing is that people come they know how about Biloxi they go and visit little box and take you know, what let's let's write the Gulfport or let's go home. Ocean Springs, so let's go to Pascagoula. Let's go to Bay Saint Louis and they start expanding the concept of the coast. They start discovering that it's beautiful Biloxi plus plus much more opportunities. And that's how we change actually the organization itself US Coast of Mississippi is now a Tri-County and Regional organization in which way we do not only promote Biloxi right remote all the beautiful cities and communities along the the coast, but you know what when you go to Spain you go to Madrid, if you go to them most likely you go to one of Cyrus right? When you come to coast of Mississippi, most likely you'll go to Biloxi, but you know what you're going to find out the rest of the coast and you'll have a great time and you will enjoy the people who are really unique and we love to welcome people to our communities and that's a big difference and when you mentioned Biloxi one of the first thing that comes to mind to a lot of people is the game, Mean the casinos in Biloxi, but from a family standpoint. Can you talk about what Biloxi has to offer, you know outside of the gaming World? Absolutely, but if I make just one quick comment the video of the gaming component in Ghosts of Mississippi and you'll be surprised how many families decide to stay in one of our beautiful Resorts and casinos for the thing is this is the setting you have this Faith turn on the gaming industry in this beautiful Coastal setting and that's unique to make if you compare where other gaming destinations are located this one is unique and and that's why but baptized that and and this is the other part we have of the 15,500 rooms give or take that we have in the entire Coast 6,600 our casinos the others the other day close to nine thousand rooms are non casino and we have from a small bed and breakfast too beautiful hotels and precisely that its uniqueness of the destination in which you can log. For any sort of accommodation in terms of taste and quality and price points to all sorts of other activities that will make sure that the hotel you select goes hand-in-hand with the activities we can offer that could be from just spending 1 day in our beautiful beach or rent a jet ski or go to the Pascagoula River, which is the largest free-flowing in the 48 Lower State. So there are so many things that finally enjoy that gives an opportunity to number one. Enjoy great culinary options many of them outdoor dining which family loves the second one is the opportunity to see the other small towns that we have and the downtown areas that you can find from the East to the west Los Arcos that it's a huge advantage that we have and we try to as much as possible explain that to our visitors or potential visitors. So when they come it's not only the law. It's Biloxi plus much more that we have to offer but I remember my first visit to Biloxi. He was Nineteen ninety-eight. We talked about this and the show opened. I was shocked at the Beau Rivage how very much like a Vegas casino it is. And then the Hard Rock on our last visit is just these are beautiful hotels and the area in Biloxi. It does have a lot to offer that I think a lot of people even if you know Biloxi has gaming you're still taking back by the quality of the hotels that are they're they're pretty amazing. So and I wanted to tell you about the impact of that development in the overall experience when only not only for the one that we live here, but primarily to our visitors all this growth all this development from a small and medium-sized hotel to the big casinos as you described that has brought a quality of place to the coast in which you have a phenomenal way of enjoying obligation visit either to come to a casino or dead. Get family and friends or just to get away with your family or friends. When you come here. You have a plethora of activities and that it's the diversity and people is looking for this is what what families are looking it could be just to go to the beach or to spend a few days visiting some of our beautiful museums many of them gear to Children's but as well, I'm going to be in in an expert in the next month or two a beautiful aquarium, which will be in in Gulfport, which is a beautiful city of as well next to Biloxi in which we have phenomenal this right on the gulf from Jones part, 2 beautiful downtown Gulfport and many places for sports or shopping for dining entertainment that makes the entire visit to the comb a more complete one. Well in that kind of segues into the next question as a travel agent, the questions that I get from families is they're looking at different areas. It's always three things. Where should we stay what's there to do wage? And for me and Dan especially where should we eat? Can you you've talked a little bit about it? Can you kind of go into depth about some places to suggest for you know, depending on what families are looking for some places to stay some of what's there to do you mentioned the aquarium and then some places to eat. Absolutely. Well, I mean in terms of hotels and accommodations you could select from a small bed-and-breakfast walk right in front of the beach or maybe towards our North portion of the coast you can select which is so popular among families all of this limited-service a product from Hilton to Hyatt to Marriott all of them available across the coast or you can select a different brands from Margaritaville to the MGM or hard rock. Yep. Or avoid Properties or the Golden Nugget? That's the beauty of it. It's 4 depending on the size of the family number one depending on the project and obviously the type of applications they want to inject you will find Excellent affordable accommodations across the coast. There's always opportunity to staying through our website or through some of the OTAs them directly with travel agents. You will find the possibility to accommodate yourself into one of our beautiful rooms most of them close to the beach and in areas, which will be just a walking distance from beautiful culinary options, excellent downtown areas and the uniqueness of the flavors of the coast and again give you the opportunity to immediately engage locals which which is a huge difference and I know families they they like to have their own time, but when they are in a downtown area, they want to see how people leave how people eat how people relate and very cool. Think that it's always so good because you you have a very unique authentic experience. When you when you get to know the locals and see the facilities that we use and we leave here in the coast. Absolutely. So, you know, we gotta talk about this understanding that we're kind of in a different world right now with covid-19. How has the area adapted to the pandemic and what if any restrictions are being placed on the visitors that are coming there that we should be aware of absolutely that's a great question and understanding the importance of that and how I mean it's very simple from now on. I'm a traveler this health and safety is equally important and at the same level of which hotel I'm going to stay or which airline I'm going to fly or which car rental. I'm going to rent a car from home now safety. It's important for for the destinations for so the visitors will say but also, it's our responsibility that in in that exchange and and when they come and visit off HC and get engaged with our people will stay safe as well. That's very important. There is no terrorism without healthy communities. And what we have done is to make sure that we have a coastline Mississippi Health promise and it's very simple. We are no scientists where no doctors so we don't want to get into that but we know there are some adverse specific recommendations from the CDC from the Mississippi State Department of Health from different organizations that are experts in the field and what we're saying to our visitors is this is very simple. When you come to co-sign, we promised that that experience that you have in mind will fulfill that you're going to you're going to feel that and number two. We are also promising you that our Benders that I work with partners that our stakeholders are taking all the necessary precautions to keep you safe and maintain our people safe and in that particular message is that we've been trying and pushing to make sure ma'am. Not only that people understand that but also there are certain accountability from our end that all of our Pandora's hotels restaurants attractions. They follow those specific recommendation wage. So when visitors come either in the family or a group they will see what we're doing and certain they will relate to the safety precautions and measures were taken and put it in place and they will be safe and there is nothing more important. But right now that's feeling safe in the places that you go that you feel comfortable in the surroundings you're walking into that. If you go to a restaurant you see those increments and precautions in place, when you go to the hotel that type of things are always available and it's present in every single step that you take or the hotel takes to make sure you feel good. So nowadays, that's the new name of the game and destinations or organizations that doesn't understand that will is going to lose the support specifically of the family wage. Market, and we don't want to do that on the contrary. We want to make sure families feel safe and I can tell you where we're taking this very seriously, there is accountability into that and we want to make sure that both sides but that's encouraging and we can look forward to 2021 if we need to but what are some of the iconic events and festivals in the area. I know what I visited in life are back as 1998. There were several festivals that we went to their feet speak to that. Well, that's one of the great things about our Coast obviously with this situation with covid-19. There's so many cancellations or there's been a lot of events that are thinking or postpone until next year, but I can tell you of two big events that our Signature Events for our cars that will happen in November and will have it in October and in November which we believe is going to be the conditions will be there plus the added precautions are going to take because of the covid-19 the first name. Cruisin The Coast we're talking about October 4th through the 11th. This is America's largest Bloc Party. This is a coast-wide festival that celebrates antique and classic and hot rod cars and last year. We had more than eight thousand cars coming from all over the nation in some cases. We had a couple of participant from International that they were on a car off to participate and I can tell you this is a truly Coast to Coast event. We start in one of the hands and we finished in the other with activities every single day Monday the family and this science of this particular cars coming to the codes their activities during the day their activities fairly evening and at some time late at night club music exhibitions trade shows. It's it's a phenomena. It's a truly a community outdoor event and it's amazing how you go either to Basin movies or to go for a walk. Or to Ocean Springs and you see all those cars lining up in the streets and people walk and they see and they take pictures and you start talking with the owners and they tell you how long they've been working with a gauge with this type of sport. They tell you how much money they have invested in those cars and you'll be surprised about the amount of money. They they invest to have those cars in bad shape. So it's the phenomenal event. So it's going on October 4th. And we we believe is going to be another excellent event for us and then in November another huge activity, which is in Ocean Springs, which is one of our most beautiful tourist cities that we have in the coast. This is the Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival and this is this is going to be November 7th and 8th. This is a weekend and we have more than four thousand bullets lining the street of downtown Ocean Springs with lots of Art Festival and artists that are coming from all over the nation to bring their art and their products and people dead. Go and and obviously this year the organizers will take all the necessary precautions to make sure they comply with a healthy and safe event. But again, it's a beautiful one. It turns off Ocean Springs into the epicenter of Arts in the south over that weekend. And again, a lot of families come in and and participating Spain in the coast staining not necessarily in a priest. They could stay in any other beautiful hotel anywhere that goes and coming either Friday or Saturday or Sunday to to the event. So what are some local information that visitors would need to know about Biloxi Mississippi Coastline. Well many of them but always first all the information on Costa Mississippi families or any potential visitor wants to go visit Coastal Mississippi. You have all the information all the information but some fun facts that I think it's as good job. You know that the beach that we call the coast of Mississippi beach is from Biloxi to Henderson point and guess what that is the largest and longest man-made page in the entire nation twenty six miles. It's a beautiful white sandy beach with ample space with many errors and you can bring your car park and then walk to the beach with some areas in which will find sand volleyball courts and nearby downtowns and other attractions that will help. We have a lot of vendors with water sports with areas so you can go and read a lot of beach lounges over there. So that's a great opportunity also and I think I mentioned this since early nineteen-hundreds, you know specifically in Europe for Biloxi was considered the seafood capital of the world. So that was very important and very another good fun fact that for families would be great. Especially. Yep. You take one of our tours in the in the in the goals in our Mississippi sound is the largest and highest concentrations of bottlenose dolphins and I can tell you you can see them out for the family. That's one of the best things to do. I mean for the kids and for the parents, but I don't know why but golfing is brings so many joy and happiness of the people. So it's it's a it's an amazing and found one that I'm sure not too many people nose grew up. And Danny is that if you want to go to the Moon, you gotta go to the coast of Mississippi. And the reason why is that since the Apollo era so this is not in recent days since the Apollo era the John C stennis Trade Center, which is in the west side of our Coast close to Bay Saint Louis Diamond Head and wavelength to that area, It's been the site for all the propulsion testing of in NASA rocket. So as you can see if you want to go to the moon and you want to make sure your rocket is ready and The Prestige Consistent are working is that best thing is going here and goes on Mississippi. And as I said at the beginning of the Tuskawilla river is the largest free-flowing river in the lower Forty-Eight page, and it's home of the Tuskawilla River Auto 1 Center, which is another phenomenal attraction to go with the family and really engage with the nature only the way that page on Center knows how to do so many things to do. I I mean the list is, you know goes on and on and on and on and most of the events believe me family related totally family related awesome so much to offer and again to learn more about the area. You can visit Coastal, Mississippi, Milton. Thanks so much for being on the show today. We appreciate you and we just thank you enjoyed learning more about the Mississippi Coastline the both of you. Thank you so much stay safe, and thank you for the opportunity. Yes, sir you to take care. Bye. But then that was a lot of really good information about the Mississippi Coastline. I was surprised all that there is to offer there. I know we you know talked about in the show opening some of the beautiful hotels them have the casinos but just the the breath of the offerings that the Mississippi Coast Line has to offer there and I don't know about you but it was encouraging to hear that they have events. They're actually still on the founder for this year that was encouraged to me. Right right. I was really surprised at you know, he threw out a fact about many hotel rooms. They have the majority vast majority are not gaming right Roots so to speak, you know, because that really is what you're talking about beginning you think of this as a casino Town. Yeah, and that's where a lot of people go for that very purpose. But it's the vast majority of Biloxi is Thursday. We more than that. Yeah. Well and even the casinos like, you know, I've been in the Beau Rivage and the Hard Rock Hotel in both of those have a lot of things geared towards families and God. Toward children. So even if you're in the casinos, it's not like they don't have programs for the kids and things for them to do the pool areas of both are very very nice. So and then again right on the coast suck it Milton was talking about how this gaming area is different than just about any other because it is right on the coastline. So yeah, it offers a lot of things that you wouldn't get obviously in Las Vegas. There's no there's no girls Gulf Coast. So yeah, right stuff to do there. Yeah, you mentioned the Beau Rivage I have it looked at their current schedule to see if they're running shows right now. But if you like vintage music, one of the things I've found out and doing some research is that this area has a lot of old school artists coming through, you know, a lot of the older musicians of people we would like is what you're saying. Yeah. Yeah, exactly and and maybe even our parents in some cases. Okay. I did notice that one time. They booked KC and the Sunshine Band and of course, I'm I did notice the dog. That if if that was still happening, whatever but I have seen something at one time where a couple of the Osmonds, you know do recurring shows there and live there. Right? So if you're into that kind of old school music, you might find it an interesting place to go. You know, I think the Osmonds not gosh Donny Marie, but the other Osmonds. Yeah, and the other in the absence should get together and do some kind of show. I think that would be interesting to see. Oh, yeah, we should trademark that we can get that going. Yeah, you know, in addition to the aquarium coming was a little bit of surprised. Yeah, but that was coming to the area. Yeah. Those are always hugely popular. The one here in Atlanta is very popular just about any destination even some of the smaller ones and some of these beach towns are profit there. So imagine that'll go over very well. I chewed I think they you know, you mentioned outdoor dining. Yeah, that's very accommodating right now. So something to think about you playing. Yep. Well folks don't forget to hit the Subscribe button off. And give the show a review if you would force. We appreciate that.

Just shitty job and that way five hundred looks amazing. Little matter. What we say we mayor today. I'm feeling good Heart Ohio I'm GONNA carry. I'm going to carry this one I. Guess these male engineers meals? No, no, no. I'm GONNA carry this one you guys. You guys. All. Right. Cool. Even I got it. What are you guys speaking of good news show what beef? Well, one quick question I. So and no. One's really be able to answer this maybe. Yeah. Okay. This is short window for this to be answered. I got my perm rods in. So the question is, are they I wait hold on turnaround. Just. possession. Comfy. Coming my Perm Kit and they were sold out everywhere in Austin. So I had to go over the Miami. John. I can answer your question before you even ask it. Yes. On episode five, hundred, you should have the curlers in your hair. That's not what I'm asking. Do I bleed my hat's. What you're asking I, think, do I was what you're asking? Do you perm first or do you bleach I? That's my question. Google in the house is going to have to exit. Yeah. For sure. Index. Not Shit okay. But also speaking of good news shows guys over space ghost, coast to coast I. Love. Of course, man courthouses reminisce the other day. Ghostwriter Sasol, you can never find it and. Rider. Goes riders like was like David, Hasselhoff and. Doesn't. Notice. Rochon doesn't he said it space coast, it's one with. Zora the talking low. Right. Doesn't Brat. Braff course, you could never Iraq. You could only that was back in the day when there was no TV show or no on-demand. So you just had to get lucky to catch a fifteen minute episode that aired who's no rhyme or reason I think they said in an episode like cares. Let's do. This is a mix up here. based. Is Always blows. His muscles. Zodiac is like talking shit to him. I don't know if you haven't seen it. It's good because what made you think, what made you think of that was just a solid show. I saw streaming the other night. So why don't we have? So it's my wife was like this is the stupidest shit. I've ever seen in my life and then I was like, did you watch it? Feels to me like one of those shows that probably doesn't hold up. Held Up. Amazing. How laughing? Oh, my God. It was like. I was laughing uncontrollably. and. Then it was ahead of its time. Yeah. It's just a different strokes you know. Yeah was space ghost. Excellent show, check it out if you have time. Sorry, it's not a Japanese RPG mark but Those aren't like shows. Those are game. Yeah. To use your shows. I watch show. Play Japanese. RPG's mark. Okay. All right. PG's listen to radio and find out what we're talking about. All right I just been stalling because I don't want to get to the first story because it's an update about the explosion in Beirut. And a lot of this information has been provided to us by resident Harto, high, Florida Man Kevin Nash for this update today, and just like we said seem pretty obvious. It's confirmed that the explosion in in the city was. Basically just massive negligence by the city in the port for years and years on end. The quote Unquote Dangerous Warehouses at the prime minister implicated in the explosion. Before is actually. At Beirut port. State control storage warehouse where they had confiscated twenty. Two thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate from a Moldovan ship and twenty thirteen. So that sounds like a lot. Yeah. It's the same stuff using the Oklahoma. City bombing for reference. That was like two tons. This is twenty, seven, fifty tons. So He's Christ. And they confiscated off a ship in two thousand thirteen So not only did that shift get remanded to stay in Beirut upon arrival, the crew is not allowed to leave the boat until like some Lebanese lawyers had to get involved argued that the judge allow them to return home since the city wouldn't release their boat or the storage contents of it including the explosives. and. So basically, the crew eventually did get to go. But everything board. The ship I guess, stayed in Beirut, and that was mostly ammonium nitrate, most commonly fertilizer or making mining explosives. So he's yeah, it's this insane like they confiscated this just like Shitload of explosives, and then just let it sit there for seven years in the port. Yeah. That's. This is bridging. First of all this happened the day before the seventy fifth anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. Also I connect nuts. I mean, look come on hold on I, want to say, no, it's interesting. Right? Because you know it is weird. Not Really. No, it's not okay. Well, the other thing I was going to say I just find that to be a coincidence your barely barely a day off to it's not Let's come on vine. Let's have fun with it. Okay. The. You're just going through conspiracy theories I know. cockamamie conspiracy theories. Of course, you can find some sort of bombing that happened. On anniversary of come on what else? What else art going to say? This ring, a bell for me because I'M GONNA? Leucopenia fool, and you go down number rabbit holes at night, and this reminded me of the Texas city disaster. Do you know about that? Yeah. Okay. So that was the one, nine, nineteen, forty, seven, right. That was like the other largest explosion nonnuclear in a or for certain America. That was only like twenty, three, hundred, Barucha. Yes. But there was also a similar explosion in two, thousand, fifteen and. How many tons compared? You're saying, this was much smaller. This twenty tonnes you said. Twenty thousand twenty seven, hundred fifty. Okay. So Texas Texas city was about the same was twenty about the same? Yeah, and in Twenty fifteen in China, there was a huge explosion were one, hundred, seventy, three people died, and it was a again in a Monja Nitra. So where's a safe place to store the nitrate or not? Okay. So not in a hot warehouse they issue nitric isn't isn't like doesn't just catching fire by itself, but there was A. A fire adjacent to it, and then when it got into the warehouse and it was stored inside, then it combusted obviously explosive exploded and you can tell that it was the ammonium nitrate because the red color of the gas explosion. So if you look at pictures of the closure, you can see the actual red plume of that's the indicator that that's what the chemical reaction was. We'll see that you had already included Texas city you just great. Copper be. I just remembered. Yugoslavian. Famous. Yugoslavian bombmaker. Eager Putin inskeep. was born. Within a week before the bombing. Fifty two years ago. Yugoslavian accident terrible mark runs yesterday terrible. You ought ever those. There's no dots. Connect yeah, and so the other fact that you can tell that it was that much nitrate is because it was it was in that warehouse. That sat there for seven years, is because where the building was? It literally created a four, hundred, five foot wide crater is now shows seawater. It is not earth anymore. Those pictures are crazy. You see the the ones that came out today of the that was getting her way fashion wild video. Yeah. Say How long did the fire burn before it blew up, I? Wonder. must've been pretty quick. People would like once it was smoking people took the phones up in those videos. Aren't that long I mean the building went up quick. I. mean. It's terrible like you said, yesterday. Just Naga, good about it. The death toll in the injury toll continues to rise. One hundred and thirty, five, dead and five thousand injured so far at the time of this recording, but it just keeps going up to thirty thousand people who are homeless from the blast, and it's a complete accident will at depends on what you, WanNa call it negligence idiocy on behalf of the port control office who had been born multiple times that the explosive needed to be properly stored or removed just never dealt with it. So port officials have been put on house arrest for now until they can be questioned, but the city is obviously still dealing with the rubble. In. The world you know is reaching out to help almost across the board because everybody's heart. Corruption. Or poor leadership because one of the two it's it's either someone not doing their job or someone not doing the job because they were housed port allowed to ignore all of these warnings from like you know different lawyers, scientists and stuff saying, Hey, you gotta get that shit out of there will be. Our they. It's certainly negligence at minimum, right? Like I don't know if you can say, didn't you imply earlier is, did you figure this out if it's true or not? If they were trying to sell it, that's why it was kind of I. Mean You. You wonder why the hell sat there. That long after people told them to get rid of it, I don't know how expensive this shit is or what. What the value is there if they if they thought, they could, if somebody was trying to make anything of it, they probably weren't because it, Saffir. Seven years now. Seems like you'd be able to sell it with somebody. Sounds like they just. They just didn't do anything about it would surely didn't forget because there was I, think I forget the years, but it's it's noted like in some public places that they had been warned like between two thousand thirteen when the confiscated it until the time of the explosion in two, thousand, twenty, th, there had been people telling. The port, like you have to deal with this stuff and I just never did, yeah, they need a, they need to need like blood like you mentioned yesterday the need to support the need to rebuild infrastructure a friend of the program. I, don't I don't want to keep airing his family business. I've been texting with his. He found the family members that were missing. They were under rebel they but they have several broken bones and stuff fling now. It's a mess in in Bay right now, and they were found in alive and I mean people anticipating out of people are still probably under the rubble. And that those council continued to rise in multiple days as they as the city because they have to clear, it blasted outbuildings for a mild half. So they have to clear like everything just just wild. ROUTINE, Lebanese insurance businesses on the up and up. For. Sure Housing insurance even work in that situation and they probably the insurance buildings also too short. Everybody's destroyed rates. Yes. Like it's. A mess and so hearts to Lebanon. For. Sure. All right. Guys. Guess what? In person schools are having a few hiccups already due to Covid nineteen? Can you can you believe it after seeing those pictures and Georgia where the hallways were packed shoulder to shoulder with like at least five hundred kids and maybe ten masks. Were masks in Georgia it's it's not. It's optional. And so. He's wearing a mask. I. Know why the mass is that. Because when you're a kid in school all you can think about all you WanNa, do is not be in school. So the kids are probably thinking if none of us were mass will all get sick were immune because teenagers should that shut down the school year? That's your number. One Goal in school shutting. Yeah. But. Also you're trying to like. That's a really good point. Shut down the school. But also you WANNA. See who's hot not and also probably only the kids with acne or wearing. Situation to. Acne. For sure. anyways, Opportunity though for somebody to be mysterious if they're really confident with their man with a black one or relax or like. Like mortal Kombat sub zero or Scorpion, it's not really intimidating. Like some movement skills like. Because Michael Jackson. Confident with the mass and maybe. You saw the pictures, right? Like you know what it reminded. Me Of reminded me of like. What we did? Senior? Year. After, lunch on the one day where we all had it together and we got like twelve to fifteen of our. No, no holly picture we got like twelve. Friends, and when we would span the entire width of the main hallway and we did the slow line. So as soon as like line, yes, we would leave lunch like one minute early because we knew when the bell would ring and we would start getting in the main hallway and we would just be all the way across and we would walk at less. Less than a snail's pace, and then the ballad ring and like everyone from hundreds of different doors and every different angle would come out at the same time and we had just create. We created a traffic jam on purpose and walk. So slowly and no one could get anywhere and no one knew, what was us because there's just too many people and we? Why are we moving so slowly? and. We just we caused a traffic jam like three days a week for twenty minutes. It was the best, but they would be like. That's like a crime during the covert era agreed. That's what I'm saying like. That's what reminded me of though, which is not good. It's. Titan. Also, well, anyways, Atlanta's the have a vice principal that will just scream at us VAM domino's volleyball's vows. Well, maybe had he not done that seven thousand times? We wouldn't on the snow slow was a reaction to the. One time he told me, you know what? Cassidy other administrators would've booted you out of here because you're crazy hair. Man He. Your hair because your hair choice, my nuts and I was like called, that's not within your rights to do I'm going to get a perm and bleach it. Tonight you bastard. At one at one basketball game. 'cause, we were rowdy fans. We played different sports. We didn't play basketball, but our friends. So we were rowdy fans the basketball game one game out and I got him. So Mad did like a socket thing or something that he called my my mom that night screaming in like threatening to expel me like after. My Mom. I got home that night. She was like what the fuck did. You do to that guy I've never heard. So he was a little bit expel heavy. He was expelled. expelled. Couldn't spell shit, but he was. You're expelled. No. He pulled so many of us into his office for basketball game antics. Bad. At the basketball games, but anyways in Atlanta the day after school resumed one school announced the second grader tested positive for the coronavirus forcing the child's teacher and classmates to be sent home to quarantine for two weeks. So they're not coming back for a while more than two, hundred, fifty employees. I think we touched on this in either radio or or the show yesterday one, the two, hundred, fifty employees, and Georgia's largest public school district. Gwinnett county have reported testing positive for the coronavirus or being exposed to someone that has positive. So that's not good. That's a huge county doctor Thomas Dobbs with the Mississippi State Department of Health said during a news conference yesterday that several people in Corinth. School district in Mississippi have tested positive for covid nineteen, and now more than one hundred students in Mississippi in that district have been quarantined after the positive results. So look sucks it's going to happen. This is going to pop up again and again. I. Highly Doubt we will cover the majority of these because there will be so many incidents. Hopefully, the kids are all fine. They're healthy. They're young. They're probably not going to die. But the shutdown the classes like every time somebody gets I. Don't know. But yeah, I think it probably depends. Is it. Just that class. Is it the ball in the class where it comes into play where it's like? This is a dumb move like. Not, having a plan because for me, it's like if you're GonNa, have the consequence of pulling the kids out the whole class courtney from two weeks. Every time someone test positive. Then you're not gonNA, make it through two months of the school. It's a different. You have to have a remote faster and you're out you're. If you don't have a remote backup plan, then you really Shit Creek. So like you said like people might be trying to get out so like they're like wall my. If you've covered come into my class because then we can say you walked into the class and then we'll get our class who fucking knows what's going to go on. But again, it's a mask. What teachers are all about it like, Hey, yes, the kick. Them were upset that? You know that they were having to go. So for sure it's looking like again, I apologize the teachers because it's looking like a mess a I. Think they're going to be healthy. The kids hope for the teachers you know. But hopefully, they don't pass it onto grandma GRANDPA and I couldn't imagine being kid in the twenty, twenty, twenty one. So we school year, it sounds awful. Misery. But the whole, the massing confuses me the most like those teachers. That's why they were scared to go to school was because of the didn't want all those. You know mouths breathing all over now, they don't have to wear masks. That's no I think. It probably depends. We don't have all the information, but certainly in the schools that are open. In Atlanta. Georgia and Mississippi. You don't have to wear a mask. It seems like it probably depend on the county. Kids. I don't know because like we talked about. It's impossible. Give him to wear. Those are the ones that put things in their mouth and spit and stuff. It's a tough situation. Glad. Wasn't on this one to this is like the story that I'm glad. Because he's got a ten year old son. And he'll be back tomorrow. Glad. We cover this one before while he was out because he probably stresses about this Let's think it's the real quick. Paul. Dunphy says trump's back to school plan kids go to school kids sit in classrooms together, kids catch cove nineteen kids go home kids transmit covid nineteen, two parents kids end up in foster care because their parents are dead while Nice Nice Paul Dunphy that trump's plan don't believe. This is one buck. jumped. To number staff. Really did. was going step by step, and then he just took a big leap. Their channel thirteen at the end is not happy. Kids are in school. Yeah. That's also Paul implying that there's no support system godparents. Parents. Don't a will. Well, why like why you gotTA politicize like? Kids going to school and stuff, and he's just mad. He's mad. All mad guys. It's a rough year. We got it Paul whereas presumptive Democratic president presidential candidate. Joe Biden. knows yeah. On twitter gas, but I sincerely doubt that he's managing his own twitter. Account. According to officials, yesterday goes Joe Biden will no longer accept the Democratic presidential nomination. In Milwaukee Wisconsin He will not be traveling to the DNC. He's stepping down. We'll know he's just to be accepting it virtually, which is. A sign. that. Essentially, the whole thing's going to be virtual, which we knew a little bit. But this is like full-on confirmation. You know what? I don't like you talk about you don't. You don't like mixed messaging, right hater. Yeah. Okay. So Biden, he just put out this video of him driving like an old corvette. And he's like he's kind of like to talk like look at me how mobile I am driving roads. And then he's not going to. Hit the road to Wisconsin. What does he? What does he gonNa do if he wins the presidency is he's just GonNa sit hide under his desk I. Mean Because Cove is not going away by the white. House the Delaware as he just sitting under the desk, go meet like you know foreign leaders and do his duties and stuff because he. People are campaigning. He isn't but people are campaigning. Well, this is a wing and a prayer situation for they. Just WanNa get They're not thinking about tomorrow. They're just thinking about the task at hand today is trying to get in the White House. The details will figure themselves out. Guys, the convention, the DNC is to take place August Seventeenth August twentieth, and Tom Perez. The chairperson of the DNC embrace the decision saying quote from the very beginning this pandemic, we've put the health and safety of the American. People I. WE follow the Science Listen to the doctors in public health experts. and. That's the kind of steady and responsible leadership. Joe Brought Biden. We'll be bringing to the White House. So he spun it as a positive Now, I'm not saying. Not, traveling sign of weakness, I. Totally. Get it. It's a good thing. Undoubtedly, just yesterday president trump said he was considering delivering. His RNC speech from the White House himself. So He's sitting there saying he's not gonNA potentially travel to go to the orange. Yeah. I. Mean because he doesn't have to now. Right, That's you're not gonNA debate on stage together. There I. Don't know we'll get into that but you know the trump campaign in the RNC's general ports to to campaigning has just been different. Trump obviously has a lot more eyeballs on him because he's in the White House. You can do pressures and all that good stuff this. Situation the this is like trump's trying to hold. You know obviously, you mentioned not doing virtual thing, but prior to that, trump's like trying to hold rallies with like. A hundred thousand people. He thinks a million people are gonNA show up men, and that's that's too much. That's the part just too hot, and then Joe Biden is like just no one knows where he is refuses to go out and public. He's not campaigning and all that's cold. Look what's next in that scenario? Well, that's right. So He can. We all get eaten by bears I guess? I don't know. Maybe they can beat in the middle as what I'm saying like. What. Trump's doing, which is interesting is like you know he's just playing the he's doing whatever he thinks the base wants to do. So the you know the basis blue lucrative virus exists he's throwing rally. The base starts getting sick. He starts wearing a mask. The base in Florida wants to vote by mail trump comes out says, I am now behind mail in voting. That set it up. Properly is what he's. Yes. He's just laser focused in on whatever the basis doing, but you know we'll. We know who trump is you know I think that the dynamics have changed in the last four years, right? Like the different global issues, economic issues, obviously the pandemic shift, a bunch of Shit. So hopefully, we're going to see or hear from trump about what his next four would be. We already know what it's like to happen as president. We don't know what the fuck it's like to have. Joe Biden is president trump with the platforms. Trump has gone ahead and said nothing changing I'm keeping the same exact. I'm letting it ride. Letting the hot hand ride is what he's saying in two, thousand twenty. Too late to get a doctor in the mix collected the doctor. Can we like anyone else? There's three, hundred, thirty, million people like long. We should get these third party candidates on I saw some polls. I saw some polls that was saying that like in both Pennsylvania and Florida, six percent of people are GonNa Vote Third, party no matter what what. kind of hard considering I. Don't know any of the candidates. It's going to be a big third party. They're going to take a couple percent away from both parties. You want right? I didn't realize. Gary. Johnson got four million last month lecture. But guys aren't seeing the DNC they're approaching things a little differently. The DNC is just saying, we're totally virtual who knows why trump saying is going to give his his his arts speech from the White House. But the main difference is the RNC's approach in terms of door knocking. something. That is kind of controversial during covert. The Donald Trump's campaign says. Knock over a million doors. The past week alone, Joe Biden's campaign has knocked on zero. The RNC is filing a ton of cash into door knockers. And declined to say whether or not any of the field staffers or volunteers had had tested positive for Kobe. Oh for sure. Sure. But don't worry every staff members provided with an eight page document of health protocols from the CDC. Trump mask. Do door knocking though is i. think it's crazy that these are door knocking this year. A lot of political strategists don't put weight on its actual. Really. Like a pamphlet you get a solid mailer and door knock follow up. That's a big step. That's a big step that other people aren't doing it. That's how you win will over. My favorite thing though. You know that type of person. That's a volunteer for the RNC right now and go around knocking on doors in swing states, which places like Arizona where the diseases rampant arm and forced to read. The Obama Strategy Book for his two, Thousand Eight and two thousand twelve elections. Ground Game Book. It's mandatory reading, which is Great. I just love the idea of like showing up and being very partisan like I can't wait to get out there and they're like, okay. Now, read this book about Obama's. Campaign, Bush this required reading? Okay. Fine anything for the cost. Let's get back to the question, the main one. Everyone's asking themselves and its policy of side is Joe Biden, physically, and mentally capable to ever be president of the United States and if so how the fuck is GonNa, prove that to the American voter. I don't know especially when the trump campaign is running ads with doctored photos claiming he's hiding alone in his basement, the the trump campaign ran out the other day. They. Photo shopped all the people in the in the in the photo out to make it. Look like Biden was alone in his basement with the words diminished and hiding in alone. More to come is. Also, removed a video from the trump campaign for the first time yesterday, because it stated, the kids were immune to the coronavirus, but that's a whole nother bag of worms. So. Trump's up biden for hiding in the basement. We haven't seen or heard from him. I, believe the main kind of question everyone was asking like, why does he take a Goddamn cognitive task right? And then he kind of addressed that during that first presser, he gave where the press was just throwing softballs. He implied he had taken a cognitive test which I think everyone was like, well, cool. What did it say? Remember his answer, and I think he was like he's like test. All is in like this pre scripted question is a cognitive test he met. was about to ask what is a cognitive test we're talking about like an APP like. Game Saying I. Like a little brain game. Walter. Reed though that the hospital you go to the hospital, the hospital for. Potential Dementia Rehab is battery of tests. They give you that determine your cognitive ability. Test for driving, but for your brain can release line. That clearly for five minutes. But no, he didn't take. An interview airing today with the with the National Association of Black and Hispanic journalists. He confirmed that he hadn't taken one and to put a cherry on top. He went on a bizarre diatribe analogy that didn't make sense whatsoever. Well, saying that he hadn't taken when he said, no haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test Jack, come on man that's like you saying before you got on this program, you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not. What do you think Are you a junkie? That's verbatim. That words he said on. Air. On Wednesday. August fifth. Two Thousand Twenty election year. Yeah. Yeah. So maybe maybe when you're talking about whether or not taking a cognitive test, don't go on some bizarre analogy, not the did this confusing and has nothing to do with anything. The. You're on a diet and eating like a bunch of junk food like, yeah. It was so weird. He was acting like this. This poor kid who interviewing whatever this guy he was like he's like he's like you're trying to trigger me basically he like he just set him off. It was just like it was like what old man loses his temper and just like irrationally screams at people like, hey, that's that's one of the only good things about these two old dinosaurs running for president in one, the sitting president, and then Joe. Biden. Guaranteed that the president of all time next next, go around during their during their go around. The crowd. They are hilarious. They're. Young guys. Yeah. Yeah. It's great for us. If you can remove yourself from the situation, it's hilarious guys. Debate debates are coming up move through the rest of this real quick debates coming up. Therefore debate scheduled the trump campaign officially put in a request yesterday to move the last debate way earlier since you take the fourth debate and make it the first debate and put in early September which the argument there would be that you know essentially, people will be getting mail in ballots and they'll potentially not be able to see a debate before they vote which I totally agree with very smart But the big question is what the Biden Camps GonNa say, who knows maybe their strategy is just to lay low and or there anyway recognition out. Definitely trying to skip out the debates from the headlines The tea leaves of the headlines. Think. The trump campaign requesting that like that's a totally logical and good question and I don't see how the Biden campaign can ignore it like what else is he doing? Get the get debates going ACP.

Well, there's a new study that CNN is pushing and Lo and behold it. Is Bad for you. Again, this time we'd is bad for your heart. CNN says according to the nerds at skaggs University of Aurora Colorado. They claim that smoking weed may make you more likely to have a stroke between the ages of eighteen and forty four. Then, if you don't smoke weed but quote unquote unfortunately, most of the available data are short term observational and retrospective studies which identify trends, but do not prove cause and effect according to the head nerd at skaggs universities basically approves nothing. That nerd. Waste, your time study, we're not really share. None of the none of the even doesn't matter the the Anti Weed lobby got this article to run nationwide, and especially on CNN I noticed funny enough. The study goes on to theorize that maybe it's just THC that's bad for your heart and not CBD because. CD would ever make you freak out because it's not psychoactive. Are these guys are out there smoking marijuana and banging hot chicks and? Yeah. And then it's bad for my heart we. Afraid of friends, but I won't checks. Took that one from skaggs university, and then the nerds over the American Heart Association said You know this study I even though it doesn't prove anything, we're going to use it to say we'd is probably dangerous for your heart and I'm just paraphrasing their spokesperson there. And now, we're here with me complaining about you know Big Square, whatever like dark. Money Group. Funds all these anti weed studies is just getting this aired. Fuck you. Just leave. We'd alone again, these are my personal opinions, opinions of Barstool sports as a whole. But. You know what?

Estimate I'd say, I'm rarely wrong and then one. Wrong. Say Twenty five percent of the time I'm actually wrong one out of four. A recognize somehow seventy five percent though, but we're lucky stay. Ross. Special Mark. For example will your right? Thanks beef. The good morning does sound better right off the. Drone Solo. So I started I started implementing. and. I can't believe. I'm about to say this car. The census is not lame. Really. Coming. Around. I can't believe. I'm saying this I got a text from dad being like what the fuck? You haven't filled out your sense yet. It's important and yeah. Okay, you're right did. Not as much as admitting, you haven't done your taxes yet. WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA, it's not wrong time. Here's what here's what happened. You're. There's there's fifty percent. He that's a bully, and when you see something week like the census, you just instinctually want to bully it. Kicks in. See. Some. Water. Yeah, that's true. Sometimes I punch down some try to punch up, but sometimes punch down since getting punched down all. Right Dad, and everyone just no filled out the census today and did an online and it took only five minutes. It's a good thing today because the Census Bureau announced on Monday, it has shortened the deadlines to respond to the twenty twenty cents a month. Now end all counting on September thirtieth. So you need to fuck and fill out the census now if you haven't. They are actually sending people door to door, but their campaign to do that as being short, and so they're not gonna get to every door. Is this basically like all about the same kind of stuff about the mail and stuff like moving everything earlier, kind of like what we're going to get to a theory of why they're doing it. For sure. There's GonNa be tons of miscount and people not submitting, which will totally indicate me. But I, guess it's a bad in general. Because prior to Monday, the Census Bureau was saying stuff like that Dudakovic. They needed a four-month extension to accurately count everyone and get all submissions in. An. Lowest, this is the lowest. We've ever had by August I l let. I'm not for what they did in Russia, which is like letting people vote from their cell phones, but I think the government should have the power to like push because they can do like ambler amber alerts and shit like. Just push is since. Privatize. Someone would do so much better than this like packet in the mail just. Everybody's phone one tax. They get the option to fill it out online or not, and that's it. Maybe. Had A problem at there wasn't a citizenship question which trump try to get with. Didn't go in, but there is one question. I. Had a problem with it asks for race and Elissa all the options for race and then for for like white. I, try to white, but it wouldn't let me I had to put like what I am anonymous. No it said White and then I had to. Handwrite, type out link whether Italian English Irish, all my Scottish, but I'm a Mutt like like most people like. Talion things. This brings up a good point. Marc speaking of this, derail this I. Yeah. So Vinnie, speaking of our heritage is vinny sent. You guys know anything about the impractical jokers, Tara Tie? Yes. Yeah. Well, Hey, we all we we we all three have slightly different heritage's Ba- mark misers really close, and so Vinnie said that wes is Sal Marquez Joe Pat is Mur and I'm Q- But. That mark and I are interchangeable and mark talking about your heritage and I realized long ago that because of our similar heritage's were the exact. Shade, of White, Guy. That's why we get. That's why get like make a lot. I'm going to get the same shade going to the Pool Tomorrow? Your cheeks. Redder though, will you you do have? Saying is look we're all. We're both like part Italian part. British somewhere in the UK Orland from, and so it's just like it's the same. We got the same, the same shade going on release two percent Russian. That's quite show is like a color swatch. Of, White. Like on the same card, I can. Love going going going to the market will. Go into the pool. But. Yeah. That was weird to me. I was like why can select the one thing but I'd like. Like three or four inches, then I could give them. anyways. Maybe we'll get maybe Austin Texas will get another pizza shop because I selected Italian, a federally funded Pizza Shop I don't know we'll see a lot of people are saying the shortening of the collection. Time of the census is a political move by trump, and he's trying to use the data for this election cycle in November, and also for the Republican Party for the next ten years because like maybe some of the Democratic states are are lower reporting and that means the House of Representatives will get distributed more to the red states. That's coming mostly left journal Journalism and publication. So I don't know I mean PROB- probably partially. True. But. I don't know take that with a grain of salt like they're saying, he's the reason why? He's ordering the Census Bureau to tighten it up. I would say. You know. Maybe maybe you should get one hundred percent responsive if if this is what you like, you get all your roads and your school's funding and your firehouse funding and the House of Representative Distribution. All that stuff. Maybe you try to get a hundred percent maybe extended I. Don't know, I'm not a census aside car to your voting motorcycle and you know. So don't be cruising around on a motorcycle and then want to get a third person on your on your on your trip because someone's already on the back and you don't have any sense. There's no census because you didn't use it. You know it's pretty strong analogy. Also. Trump also might just sick of the census like like me and he's like, this is enough I don't know why I should be no rush. Do it every ten years the. Extend The fucking time. Get the date. Extended if someone wants to cut it short, there's political motivations I. Don't know what they are but. Right. Well Yeah, I. Mean I don't know yourself has to do with gerrymandering. The scientists I believe is the basis of Gerrymandering I. in some way. I don't know how exactly it works, but I'm sure has to do with that. Yeah and look here. Let me if I if I can. Talk about talk shit about the sense of some more look. This is what the census letter in the mail said, which are dug up today. It says, you must fill this out required by law, which is total bullshit. No Way. That's true. Since millions don't fill it out every time, it comes around and then know. What I'm getting at, it's like it's like less required by law than jury duty. You can pretty much take both letters and throw them straight in the trash and say, you never got them in the mail like jaywalking technicality. It's technically against the law, but no you're. Wrong. What is wrong with you at? This demeanor is the. act. I I don't know I didn't know you get away with? No. One's GONNA no one's GonNa. Force. If that's true. Nobody's GONNA enforce cocky. You're like I fucking burnt my Jersey you're going to get contempt. WAS AIMING I dunno fake fired people via letter to that, they could or threaten to fake fire people via letter. So they can take that to a judge. They wouldn't have to do jury duty and it's still. Jers the worst. Thing if he. One for the next month show, he's contempt of court. Sign Up, and then answer all the questions like you're like. Just eighty percent of people ignore jury duty and very, very, very few people get in trouble. Look, then it goes on to say on page one again, required by law, and it's important because it helps put roads, parks, hospitals where they are needed most. So right there, I'm link roads. Fuck. You Austin Texas. That's just a troll job. Really fucking cruel to mention that on the front page of why I should fill out the census because we need about seven times, the roads we have. Well. Yeah. because. Grown like like five times, its size from since last census. Still not nothing's going to change the cycling helper, road system parks, parks, or canceled Bra. Try again like hospitals one out of three. Thank you for putting one important thing out of three on the census front page for me not bad. Maybe mentioned schools fire houses and dividing the four, hundred, thirty, five Reps. You know proportionately pieces of Shit. Stupid. Letter anyways I get. It's important. So maybe instead of shortening the collection time, extend the collection time, get one, hundred percent, but look everyone should take it online. Felt the census to your civic, Duty Rob, Blah Blah. I mean seriously how many libertarians are fill in the south though none? At also. They don't, they don't WanNa even a record of. Google. Libertarians in the sense. They're not. How much? To the sexist because. Because the census is all about federal funding and. Also. Served in the nation? Yes. It's all about big government libertarian. Now Libertarians don't feel there's libertarian. Just want to get rid of the federal government and General's pretty much and also. Talk some of them is interesting. They're awesome. and. Also, the parks for the homeless. Now, guys get get get up to speed. So almost vary undercounted on the census. So you can just take park funding right off. They have cell phones again, amber alert dial, just just text it out to everybody. They do have people that go out and try to talk to the homeless on the. Walk walking my neighborhood just text everybody. You can do. Fill out the census. It's great and that's going to do it for hard factor. We're running a little long. So let's just end the show, but tomorrow is the five hundredth episode. Last back, five, hundred episode Florida Friday. We have a ton of Fuck and Florida. Friday. Stories. It's GonNa. Be Awesome tune in tomorrow. Lima's. voicemail five, one, two, two, seven, four, hundred, eighty, love. You guys have a great fucking day cost. Run? Through. The hall now to the end.
