So our California tier system for sports was based on the N F HS system, and they came out last week and said the peer system doesn't work. So the governor now has a lot of latitude to do what he needs to do to make this happen.

And certainly, there are small businesses that have been devastated by corona virus and had a brutally hard time. Many businesses that have shut down for good. The same time other small businesses.

Everything, is doing poorly in everybody is pessimistic. And the environment we're in now helps create. A better and quicker recovery then we might expect otherwise during a recession. But there are a lot of businesses and a lot of jobs. That will not come back until the cloud of people's fear of infection from Corona virus lifts, which I am putting at some point.

"So for 82 years, American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they could be paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people. But today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs that they call exploitative and discriminatory. NPR's Alina, sell your reports. Jerry Dagostino had a job but couldn't afford a few things he wanted to do, like, go out to eat. Sometimes daughter more days go to events.

Advocates For Deaf And Blind Laud Netflix's New Playback Features

"Netflix recently announced it's rolling out a new feature that allows some viewers to stream their favorite shows or films, slower, half speed, say or faster. The feature, which is currently on Ly, available to Android users, adjust voice pitch to make the faster slowed down speed. Sound natural. The idea to criticism from directors like Judd Apatow, who said last fall that platform should leave content as it wass quote intended to be seen. Advocates for the deaf and blind are lauding the new feature, saying It's a win for people who rely on playback options so they can also enjoy the cinematic experience. One of those advocates as ever it bacon. He's a board member of with the National Federation of the Blind, and he joins us from Salt Lake City, Utah. Hello. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So for those who who dont know for someone who is blind, How do you watch films or TV shows? So we watch films just like anybody else on Ly. We have what's called audio description. Our audio description narration that's going on while the programming is being viewed. And so basically when there is no dialogue between the actors, a narrator comes on and describes what's happening in the scene and what's happening in the the show. So we have an understanding so like they might describe The set What's happening around us? They might give us some gender information or race information about characters, just overall things that help us. Understand and comprehend what the creators were trying Tio portray to the general public. And so how does this new playback feature assist with the viewing experience? Well, blind individuals. Many of us use a screen reading technology on our computers and our phones. And we have learned and adapted over time to speed that up on a regular basis. We've also been listening to audio books for years as a member of the National Federation of the Blind. I've been listening to audio books from the library for the blind for many years, and we've always been able to speed up that process because we're listening all the time and in our our ears that kind of trained over time to listen at a quicker speed and so allowing us to do the same thing on on on a show. Like a documentary or some type of other content. It really helps the whole lot. When when you're trying Tio consume such great content in mass quantity. And why is it so important? You mentioned that you've been doing this in other platforms. Why's it so important on a streaming platform like Netflix? Well, I think it's very important because I'm going to watched a lot of content just like anybody else. And honestly, I've been listening to so many things all of my life that when I listen at regular speed, sometimes it can sound a little slower than it that it should. And And so I might. My years kind of wanted a little bit more faster as a blind individual. Because that's what I've been used to listening to my computer, listening to my phone listening to audio books, so it's only a natural process that I would want the speed to be a bit faster on the streaming content that I'm viewing on Netflix or other platforms. You know, as I mentioned earlier, there are directors actors who have pushed back saying This playback option distorts their art and the way it was intended to be consumed. How would you respond to them? Well, I would say to to someone like Director Judd Apatow, who is a person who I love the the programs that he's put together, and I've watched several of his films, There is so much information that they have put out in their content. That audio description allows me as a blind individual to comprehend and observe on DH two Having that speed feature. It just allows me to do better understand and better comprehend what they were trying to portray in their creation. I love a lot of Judd Apatow's work and I think if he understood me is a blind individual and how I consume content, he would be applaud this new feature by Netflix

finance professionals will be acknowledge that it's a huge massive program being rolled out to almost real time so the guidance has been slow to show up and and folks have had their struggles with it but are the key for a small business owner would be stay in touch with your lender try to get your application in and there's a there's a pool of relief out there for folks try to pay the bills and that comes down the pay roll mortgage utilities other costs that you might have and that's called staying afloat surviving in in the middle of the perfect storm what we have going on right now with the carers act and the two point two trillion dollars from the federal government how does that integrate with the state in what they're able to do to help small businesses in the Commonwealth well the state I'm in a real jam right now and they did kudos to our state level officials they came forward with the sixty one million dollar loan program but it tapped out to almost immediately so a pretty small bucket but the state has had such a fall off of their tax revenues that I'm not sure that the state itself will be able to do a whole lot of there will be some channeling all of those of that two point two trillion into state government we're not exactly sure how much so there's big questions about the state budget and so you know the state's ability to enhance and itself to be a portal but at this point go to the go to the cares that go to the federal is probably the best solution for business owners small businesses feel half the economy Gordon as you know and then play half the nation's workforce but many were forced to close by state governments Friday was the deadline for that nonessential business so waivers you have to apply for that how many were actually approved you know you know the number I believe is in the five thousand range and we have another five B. we we've been jumping up and down over that issue we need that waiver process to continue and we asked the governor please keep it open you know as this process the crisis my great you know now we have businesses re purposing to produce TV's personal protection equipment where maybe they didn't do that before so you know do they get a waiver so they get an automatic exemption you know how does that work and we need the waivers to help there's a gray area question if you're a critical supply chain company you know and you you supply let's say pilots for a company that produces antiseptics you know are you a central are you not we need to waivers and so we're really calling on the governor to bring back that waiver process would be closed last week and so that's the central but yeah we think about five thousand roughly were approved I know they got over thirty six thousand requests in through the door before that would not door slammed closed so it was important to small business we really would like to see it back again have you heard anything about extending the waiver process I mean it seems to make sense cordon that just continue to review there's no harm in that right absolutely you know we think could reserve one of the the better aspects of the governor put in place we were applauding that and then all the sudden it came to an end we are not sure why in various press conferences he has not answered that question so again a big open question at this point Gordan real quickly how many of your members are going to be able to survive all along shut down yeah that's that the deep question and you know we're we're gonna see shops close there's no doubt about it small business people are are a plucky lot I mean they are really the can do kind of people in our communities they probably tough that out to get the business started and so if there's a group of people I think that will fight tooth and nail to come back it is our small business owners but you know I have not seen a an objective measure or metric on that but count on it we're going to lose some of our our friends and neighbors that have small companies small businesses that said you know we we do hope our policy makers government and certainly all of us will will support the local local business owner and and will see a real revival of real charge back when we get beyond the health aspect of this crisis ratio of independent businesses Gordon Denlinger and joining the KDKA radio morning show with Larry Richard and myself this past week to talk about the affect the pandemic and then the shut down of businesses means for independent businesses throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania a lot of businesses that you frequent will not be opening their doors again unfortunately because.

"Media. What was the idea it was to promote and just Davis? A gesture like you said before what what was the what were they promoting Mike? They put braille on the floor. And what was the foundation they were supporting do. You know, what it was? We don't know. We don't know why. Idea. They just put braille on the unit for no reason for no reason, Mike, we don't know we were laughing at it. We we have no idea. Wait a second. You might you might see. That's just a dumb answer. Okay. We have no idea. You got the habit. We have go ahead. Okay. So they were supporting the national federation of the Berlin. Okay. That's what they were supporting the national federation of the blind. So all right. The one thing they should have rethought though, was if they put their uniforms in braille. It doesn't help anybody. Because if you can't touch them. How would you know that they what they were saying? So that's why putting them on the uniforms makes no sense. So I understand what they were doing. The gesture was obviously to support the national federation of the blind. But on a uniform that is going to be viewed by from a distance. Howard braille help it doesn't. So that's why you see. That's what I mean. They do something nice and get killed. So I mean, that's that's the bottom line. They do something from a charity standpoint. And they and they get beat up for it. So no good turn goes unpunished. That's what that's what that was. Jimmy and Ronkonkoma what's up Jimmy? How are you thinking? Oh, what's happening? Welcome back. It's a pleasure to have you on. Okay. Awesome. Do you think the instead of taking Iran Barkley? They should've taken a quarterback and maybe groomed them for. Luckily, he sounded like a fool in the beginning. I should've realized okay. I should have realized that. Yeah. Kevin and Scotch Plains. What's up? Mike last week. I was listening to you. And you were talking about how in effect you said that this Yankee team you never hated a Yankee. I can't stand watching. Yeah. Watch. They really, and I sat there in the car, and I nodded along with you. I couldn't agree more judge comes back, and and it actually feels like they actually have a lot more juice. All of a sudden, I agree. Yes. He adds judge brings something in terms of just personality chemistry. He brings something to the table for the Yankees. Yes. He does. They missed it without him. I think you're right about that. I think he does make it better. I agree. But this has been a very listless very formless team that got out to a lot of wins early and has kind of stumbled for the last sixty games, you know, now they've played. Okay. The last two games they was seventy seven and ten in the in the seventeen games before these last two. So now they've won two games in a row. And I do think this win tonight would actually boost their psyche a little bit that they didn't let the Red Sox. You know, celebrate on the field. I think that would actually help them a little bit. If they did that tonight. It was easy effortless losing and now and now just just a little bit of juice. I don't think we realized that about judge how valuable he was dead. I think I think there's no quiet. Listen, I've said this before. And it was obvious even last year this judges team, you know, the team that happens organically, you just happens. No, one takes it. It just happens. And this is judges team the judges the guy they go to just the guy who sets sets the pace he is. I think the face and the voice I think he is the guy for this team in the future. I think this is there are the guys who are going to be very big stars. I think is going to be a star. I think there's other guys who are big parts of it. But I think this is judges team. I really do Franken new Rochelle what's up Frank? Mike we've been absconded done as mccutchen gonna play. Now the rest of the way and for the one game. I I I don't know that yet. But my I think that mccutchen. I think they're gonna play mccutchen. Yes. Okay. How about behind the plate? If Tanaka gets the nod. I think they have to catch Roman. They do right. I think they do. I think in the one game. I don't I don't think you I think you have to you have to not worry about Sanchez's feelings, and you have to let Tanaka be able to throw the ball down when he wants to when he needs to get a big out. He needs to be able to throw the ball down. And throw the ball where he does with the ball breaks severely from the knees down. You gotta let them be able to throw it up all the guys on base throat up over the guy on third and with with with Sanchez. You really feel whether he can do that or not. So I think you can't spare it plus right now, you're not losing a whole lot because not hitting anywhere. So to me, it's a pretty easy thing right now for for Boone. Now, I don't think balloons gonna commit to any of that today. I don't think he's gonna commit to mccutchen. I don't think he's gonna commit the world. I don't think he's gonna commit to a starting pitcher. I don't think he's commitment eating today. But I think his actions are heading in a certain direction. There's no question back.
