"The Big 10 and Pac 12 won't be playing this year. WCBS reporter Peter Haskell spoke to ST John Sports Management professor Glenn Gerster about the impact. What is the financial impact on these schools if they don't play football? Well, I think you have to look at it two ways. The first way is what is the financial impact on the entire athletic department? And then also, you could look at what is the financial impact on the entire university. You know what a place like Nebraska. They generate almost $100 million from football of all. What $100 million allows them to do is to subsidize all of their other sports. So is most. If not all of that revenue has taken away the question becomes. Will the school continue to sponsor the other sports come spring? And and You know the effect on the university? Very few athletic programs. Return any money back to the university, even a place like Ohio State, where their revenues over $200 million In some years. They made me turn 5 $10 million to the university. But in other years, maybe turn nothing. What is the role college football plays and recruiting students who don't play football and also collecting donations from alumni. In terms of recruiting. There is some evidence that having a successful football program will increase recruits, especially from out of state. And at a state college that's not inconsequential. Most most a colleges will charge double or triple or maybe even quadruple for an out of state students. So there is a recruiting benefits, but that's only if the football team is successful. The other part about donations. Donations made because of athletic success are usually earmarked for athletics. In other words, someone decide I'm going to make a $10 million gift to build in the field. Because football team is doing well, that person is maybe not making that donation to build the new science lab, you know, make the library more up to date. And Saint John.

"Holding on your first day on the central nights that line with Spencer Campbell, Go ahead. Great guests, then my question's for the Gentlemen, here, 2016 Donald Trump in Maine because they spoke. The elective is a second congressional district up there. I looked at some recent polls and they had him up a little bit. You probably have much more than that. You probably carry that again. The question is, Do you have the Senate race were Carlin seems to be running in the mid forties. She's probably down anywhere from five, maybe 78 points against their competitive Donald Trump carry enough. In Maine, but the coattails to get her across the line and have you pulled that? We looked at main back. Months ago, so I don't want to use those numbers. I've looked at the numbers that you speak about that second district of Main, as Bill mentioned, is one of two states, Maine and Nebraska instead of doing their electoral votes, all you know, winner take all like we do here in Massachusetts. They actually split them up by their congressional district. So in Nebraska in 2008 Obama won the second district about one Nebraska delegate and was the first time somebody have done that Mein has a similar system. In 2016 Trump was able to get that delegate in the second district, and that delegate might be the difference. Because 306 you know that one could make a difference. Tio from 2 69 to 70 will certainly be looking at that race. My concern is is watching Collins telling Gideon, particularly with the amount of money Gideon is gonna have in that race. That if that same pattern holds that we saw in 2016 if the senator is gonna pull or if the president's going to pull the senator or not. That would be my concern in the state of Maine, plus voter registration in Maine. What I've seen is the dens are up about 40,000 registered while the Republicans are only up about 6000 over the last Four years or so. So it looks like the Democrats had put a lot of money in the state is they realized of what happened. But remember, all the money in the world doesn't necessarily you know, amount to a hill of beans. If you take a look at Joe Biden in those primaries number. Biden when he ran in Massachusetts in this primary this year, spent no money in the state and won the primary. So sometimes the message out pays. You know any of the amount of money Bloomberg could spend. On the same hand. It is nice to have those resource is an organization in state because he won. He won Massachusetts but that was after the boomlet. From from from South Carolina. I mean, he basically locked up the convention. Locked up the nomination in South Carolina. One small state who was extraordinary means he finished what he finished third in New Hampshire. If I'm not mistaken, and he didn't even stick around in New Hampshire back to support him, he would have been born came in fifth club, which are beatem. I mean, it was that remembers, you know, booted. So that was you. Yeah, I mean, he was actually he turned it around in Nevada when he comes in second over Buda Judge by just a point or so, But that was really the turning point. And then he takes it in South Korea, but that's a different story. Well, we got on track. You gotta get out. Yeah, Yeah. No, I just Yeah. I just figured we bring it back to the wing wind a little bit. You know, that's a big, big race up there, you know, certainly, as they bill appreciate your call, and thank you so much good question. Good questions that your ship, but my great night. 617 to 5 for 10 30 Triple 89 to 1930. My guest his Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson College polling, Spencer will be with us for one more segment. If you'd like to jump onboard dialling, you can ask whatever question you want about The science and it has become much more science. Maybe it's maybe it's that are to the art in the science of polling political races here in America coming back on Nightside nightside.

And I started asking him like you know what kind of protection are they giving you? Do you have face masks? He said they're giving us masks and I said, what does the mass look? He said it's like the beard net, but it's a full faced one and so then that's as like that's not gonNA protect you. You're still breathing in air through those holes like that does nothing.

I'm calling because I'm currently in baby step two with my husband. And we originally started at twenty, five thousand and we're down to about sixteen thousand. And my parents are going through a really bad divorce and my sixteen year old little brother would like to move in with me and my husband We're kind of at odds about it because. I want to let him move in but my husband. Wants to stay get intense and he's concerned. It will be too much of an expense if we let him move in. Are. You do you live near where he lives now? No they live about forty, five minutes away from Moscow I guess not too bad but he would stay in his same school community as a car. no she would transfer to school here in mine town. About forty five minutes from here. And what is the financial condition of your parents? Very poor they've filed bankruptcy and they are still even after the bankruptcy twenty, five, thousand and. What's your household income? Sixty five, thousand. What costs are associated with bringing him in food. food he would be would have to help him get a car because he doesn't have one and with daycare with my son Conflict with school scheduling. Bus Doesn't run front of Your House. You sorry. There's a bus not run for the school in front of Your House. No. But he he could. He could walk for a while it would just be hard one turn you really cold. How Far Away is it? About, a mile here That's not bad as nice little hike. uphill both ways and snow right You could tell his grandkids about it some day. It sounds like things are pretty miserable for him I want to help him. Me Too. So how is he miserable enough to? Take on some other forms of misery in order to get out of there like for instance, when he moves in with you, he starts he starts a job immediately and I saves up right quick and gets him a thousand dollar car. And he pays for it. He would be willing to work I I'm just concerned it would affect his grades. I'm concerned that he's living in a cesspool and he needs to get out. I'm not, concerned. About his range. He needs to work. If I'm your husband and you came to me and said, look, he'll take a job and he'll work this many hours and make much money He'll pay US fifty bucks a month for food and he'll save up to everything else and beyond a budget the way we teach him in order to save up and pay cash for his furlough thousand dollar car that we're going to help him get. We could be saving his life please let's do this for my brother. I think that's a regional thing. But if your little brother wants to move in there and sit on the couch and eat Doritos, all afternoon and suck. And play video games and sit on his butt. And then gripe because he ain't got a car that you gave him that he's entitled to because he breathes air this is different animal you following me. So I'm just I if he is as desperate to get out of that mess as it sounds like he is then he's desperate enough to do some crap. When he hits the road overture housing, it's get his life straightened out. I'm sorry for him. It's a tough road. He's at such situation. He's in his parents are both completely unplugged. Basically emotionally have abandoned him financially of abandoned him and he's sixteen years old. Let's talk. I'm. heartbreaking. But. If I'm your husband, your husband, he doesn't WanNa take a project on. He wants to bring in bring in someone that he can be a blessing to. If I'm your husband that's what I would be sitting on and so I think you can lay out some guidelines and then talk to your little brother and say these are our conditions if you will meet those, you're welcome. And of course, when you live under my roof, you live by my rules to. Come home drunk at sixteen years old. You're not doing dope it sixteen years old you're not doing you know out I just fill in the blank right? On Sunday. We're going to church or this is what we do at our house. Okay. If you live in my house, you do what we do at my house. You don't WanNa live there. It's okay. You don't like that that's live somewhere else. But when you're under my roof, this is high works. That's kind of old school. Should we did have a basic savings account for the car? Yeah. Just help him. I don't care if he puts it in a fruit jar. Just won't even I just wanted to sixty hours a week and go get him thousand dollars. Right? Quick. Okay sounds good. Just Bust I. Mean I just want him bust his butt man I want he's got a lot of emotion. He can burn off a bunch of it working. Yeah I agree I think that he's definitely willing to do what it takes anything more I just had reservations about forcing him to work so much I don't I don't have any reservations about it at all the best thing ever happened to him. He he won't die from it when you're working really really hard right before you pass out, she went to worry about work killing you won't kill you. So it's okay. You're going to be. All right. That's going to be the best thing ever happened to him. You're giving him safe emotional environment to live in someone that loves him and actually cares about his well being you're a good person. You're good sister. Well done. Just put some guidelines on it. So your husband feels like he's participating in. Process it's helpful and not enabling a bunch of crap.
Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions
"CNN White House correspondent Boris Sanchez Boris President Trump is defending the executive orders issued on pandemic relief even as the White House is struggling to explain them they're having trouble landing out for the American people. Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them. Twelve, hundred dollars. Are you talking about in addition to unemployment that they're already getting nervous having. that. I. Beg.

Has Trump abused his presidential powers?
"Democrats and Republicans think President Trump overstepped his authority this fast weekend when it's an executive orders on extending Corona virus relief after Congress failed to agree on a bill Well, CBS News White House correspondent been Tracy Talked about this this afternoon with anchor Michael Wallace would do. A couple of things are released. The president says they will do a couple of things. He says he is protecting people from eviction, deferring student loans extending for $100 Federal on unemployment benefit and also suspending the payroll tax. But we should say that there are major caveats for all of these for eviction protections. He simply is telling his agencies to review whether or not They should protect people from eviction for the unemployment benefit that $400.25 percent of that has to come from states and we're already hearing from governor saying there's no money to do that. And then on the payroll tax suspension. This is really just referring that tax. You still have to pay it back down the road, and it doesn't help you if you don't have a job, because if you're subject to the payroll tax That means you're getting a paycheck. And then there are many in Congress who are saying they claim this isn't even constitutional. Some of these orders Yes, You basically have a Democrat, saying that across the board, saying, this is unconstitutional. It's Congress that gets to decide funding levels and allocate taxpayer dollars. But you do have some Republicans, including Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, who came out and called this unconstitutional slop. The president did not like that. He fired back on Twitter, saying that passes a rhino, a Republican in name only and accusing him of going, Roque. Lord of these orders on the constitutionality question. Leave us when it comes to Ah, Corona virus relief. Is there any other talk of trying to get a bill done? Got a question here is if these will be challenged in court, which obviously would slow down any aid that would come of these. But almost everybody in Washington, especially on Capitol Hill believed that at some point they all have to sit down again and hammer out some sort of legislation because even if what the president has done magically works It still doesn't address the issue of funding for schools. It doesn't address any more funding for small businesses for states and local governments, and also the direct payments to families that President Trump And the Democrats. Both say they want by the way, Ben, What are you hearing about the President's plan for his acceptance speech at the Republican Convention. Where is that going to be? Do we know yet? Well, the president has tweeted out again. Ah, kind of teasing of the location of this, He says he has now narrowed it down to two locations. One would be the White House. That's something he has talked about. In recent weeks. The other would be Gettysburg. Pennsylvania, the site obviously of a very famous civil war battle, So we'll see you the president's doing a briefing this afternoon. We'll see if he shed any more light on that. All
Storm tears through Midwest, leaving trail of destruction
"That people here in the Philadelphia area got to know real well a couple of months ago. Rachou. The rare windstorm with power similar to an inland hurricane swept across the Midwest today, blowing over trees, flipping cars and causing widespread property damage, as well as leaving tens of thousands of homes without power. The storm lasted several hours is a tour through eastern Nebraska, Iowa and parts of Wisconsin and Illinois. A scientist at the National Weather Center Storm Prediction Center says the storm had the wind speed of a major hurricane and likely caused more damage than a normal tornado officials in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, along with Marshalltown, Iowa. Say that the damage wass
Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions
"Surrounding President Trump's multiple executive orders on Corona virus relief lawmakers raising legal questions about his authority to take actions on his own. What we are doing is entirely within the executive capacity of the president. That's White House press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany. Defending Trump's move. Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse criticized the executive orders calling Trump's actions Unconstitutional slop. ABC is Katherine Walters joining us She's in Washington D. C. You're watching this unfold. Catherine Sass not alone in his criticism, but the president fired back at the senator. Yeah, he definitely fired back at him. Mary said that he has gone rogue, the president and the administration. They gave himself this self imposed deadline of last Friday to come to an agreement with Democrats and agreement that never came to fruition here. So the when Let alone signing. You Know one executive order a three memorandum over the weekend. And, frankly, is you mentioned that on and other Republicans. But, of course, all the Democrats raising concern about his authority to act unilaterally here since Congress handfuls of the power of the purse Now they also raise the fact that he's Cover. You know four different buckets. They cover extending on point and benefits covering the payroll tax, curbing evictions and deferring student loans. They don't address a number of of other items that need funding such a cool additional aid for testing in vaccine development support for that PPP of program for small businesses, So that is another thing that Democrats are worried about here. And the question is, Do you know what it'll get back to the negotiating table were so waiting to hear what Happens asleep between Democrats and White House negotiator debate for that extra 400 bucks and unemployment benefits. The president is taking that money from the Natural disaster fund, and that's right before what a lot of people expect to be a very active hurricane season, and the feds would pay 300 bucks states would have to pay $100. How do you force states to pay that money is on interesting issue because there's a lot of confusion among governors as to how this plan would be implemented to that 400 Dollars, 300 of which the federal government will agree to pay. Now it's a question of units and whether the state will pay $100. But as of right now, the way the order is written in the way that the Department of Labor has so far given guidance city states in order to even get that $300 from the federal government What it needs to make a commitment to pay that $100 so reading from the order is not entirely clear how this would be implemented states to be able to move around Suns that they've already allocated and other portions of their budget. But it's something that Republicans and Democratic governors have in a way Stern's about and where additional funding, for example, would come for schools and other items that may need to fund in the fall. Do the president's actions really have as much power as he's saying they do? Yeah, another question that debate as well. We'll see how the $400 program hands out here. It already seems like there's a great deal of confusion over at the other is the executive order on renters. The one with the curb. Eviction is unclear whether that really has much Keith because it doesn't say that it's going to stop affection, just orders the federal government and federal agencies to attempt to slow these down, so that's one thing we're hearing from Democrats on Capitol Hill over the weekend and today after the president sign, he's memoranda, and these orders is they don't really carry much weight, but they don't really have a Keith as some of the supporters of these orders. ABC is Katherine

The World's Highest-Dwelling Mammal Lives Atop a Volcano
"In twenty thirteen to mountaineers were nearing the top of Vulcan Judy Jayco a twenty two thousand foot tall volcano on the border of Chile and Argentina. When they saw something unexpected, just two thousand feet below the summit climbers spotted a mouse scurrying across the snow. It's really a remarkable citing his known expected wild mammals to be living at an elevation of over twenty thousand feet. At that elevations that the scarcity of oxygen oxygen that makes it really a challenging. Place to to survive in function. But then also just the extreme cold, it's an extremely inhospitable environment J. Starts and evolutionary biologist at the University of Nebraska. The climbers reached out to starts because he studies how animals adapt to high altitudes and he was so intrigued that he decided to make his own trip to survey the area starts and his colleagues spent a month that Jews Zhigo earlier this year where they confirmed with the climber saw they found mice everywhere including on the summit officially setting a new record for the world's highest dwelling. Mammal. Start says, the summit citing was fortuitous, his climbing partner Mario Perez, Mamani saw the mouse dive under a rock just starts made it to the top exhausted and groggy from the thin air. It took starts a minute together his wits, but he eventually managed to catch the mouse with his hands starts collected that mouse and others as museum specimens that will enable future scientific analysis. They also their encounter on video. The report is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now that he's home starts wants to understand how these mice can survive in such harsh conditions, and conversely what prevents other animals from venturing. So high clearly the the device that are living these extreme altitudes. Have physiological capacities that are very different from your typical rodent. He and his colleagues are comparing the genomes of the mice from Judea Jayco to their lowland relatives to see if they can identify the animals high altitude adaptations. He's curious whether they have evolved some of the same strategies as mice that live at high elevations, in north, America in the Himalayas. Starts also wants to know how mice are finding food on top of a barren rocky volcano thousands of feet above the highest green plants. On his next trip, he plans to analyze the stomach contents of the animals, the capture. It's really an open question to whether most species are whether they're elevation limit is set by physiological tolerance or just the lack of ecological opportunity. It's probably a combination of both whenever the answer starts suspects, there may be more high altitude animals out there than scientists thought, it's just a matter of climbing high enough to find them
Lebanese officials blame explosion in Beirut on ammonium nitrate. Can something similar happen in US?
"In in Beirut Beirut yesterday yesterday after after a a massive massive explosion explosion rocked rocked Lebanon's Lebanon's capital, capital, killing killing more more than than 100 100 injuring injuring thousands thousands leveling leveling an an entire entire neighborhood. Lebanese officials blamed the blast on more than 2700 tons of highly explosive ammonium nitrate stored without safety measures. The same chemical fertilizer has been responsible for huge explosions here in the United States as well. And used as a bomb making components in international and domestic terrorism. So what kind of safety regulations exist in the U. S to keep something like this from happening here? Going to put that question to Joe words. He covers the environment for the center for public integrity, and he's written about this. Welcome to press play. They start having So what we saw in Lebanon has happened here in the U. S, right? I mean, maybe not on the scale of yesterday's explosion, but ammonium nitrate was linked to an explosion seven years ago in the town of West Texas, right. That's right in West Texas, 2013 you know there was a big accident there afire and triggered an explosion of 60 tons of ammonium nitrate. 15 people died. 260 people were injured, and this really just rocked the town. It destroyed Windows leveled apartments. It just looked like a tornado had ripped through the town. Before that, In 1947 There is what is considered to be the worst industrial accident in the US 581 people died. This was near Galveston, Texas. Andi was a similar situation. It was ammonium nitrate stored unsafely there that was involved in a big explosion. So this is You know, a common element of some of the worst disasters. How do you compare the one that happened yesterday? I mean, was it a similar level of of ammunition there? Well, you know, with one in West Texas, 1 2013 was an estimated 60 tons. It's early with the investigation in Beirut, but, you know, early estimates put the amount of ammonium nitrate stored there at around 3000 tons. So we're talking about a considerably more ammonium nitrate. And when we heard that first clip when you played it, I mean, you could hear that deep, concussive blast. It comes from, but it's it's It's like a detonation, and that's a real signature of these thieves. Types of explosions. It makes them wonder. I mean, what kind of federal rules exist to prevent these kinds of tragedies? You know, that's a good question. It's a patchwork of federal and state rules, including some that have been weakened in recent years. First, it's important to note that there's not a great You know, public estimate of how many of these facilities are around. The U. S Last survey done by the federal government is several years old, and it's estimated that there's 1300 of these facilities in 47 states. There's a couple layers of federal protection one through the AI. They require facilities that store this stuff to tell the government that they're storing it. Tell him how much is being stored and how it's being stored. That's supposed to be information that's available to first responders and firefighters in the area. But after the West Texas accident, Obama sent out this executive order and he really pushed his administration in the agencies to do more Teo to safeguard against these types of accidents. When President Trump's administration took over, they set about dismantling large parts of that rule. They took out some of the big elements, explaining that it was a burden to industry and the agricultural business industry pushed hard. Lobbied very hard to get those elements out of the rule. Well, it's interesting, just kind of the secretive nature of this. I mean, Ah, I also have a sense that you're kind of well acquainted with this. You're from Oklahoma. You lived in Oklahoma City for a long time. This same fertilizer was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, right? Yeah, That's right. It was used used in Timothy McVeigh's bomb. You know, 168 people died. I'm from Oklahoma City. It wasn't living in that city at the time, but you know, 90 miles away. I remember that day. Remember being pulled out of class during that day? Because you know we knew people that were, you know in the explosion. So since Del Carmen City bombing states have gotten really concerned about terrorism about domestic terrorism or criminals, getting their hands on On ammonium nitrate and so the public right to know laws or up against thes e safety concerns. What you get is really inconsistent quilt of regulations where, say in Texas this information is highly secretive state goes to right major lengths to prevent people from knowing it. If you can get that information online in other states like Nebraska and Iowa, even states like Oklahoma makes that information available. If you ask other states make it really hard or make the public go through these weird steps to get the information. What about here in California? I mean, this is a major agricultural hub. Were you able to learn anything about this issue in our state? Yeah, I requested info from California and we got a very confusing response. It wasn't clear They passed me off to other people. The information on paper is available to residents in California's They request it. It's not available in a handy Online way that many other states have it up. But I'm told the information is available if you requested it gets tricky, though, because you have to know the name and the address of the facility usually And then you have to find out where that information is stored. In most cases, that's a local fire department but usually have to call local fire departments say. Hey, I'm curious about you know this facility on The street. Can you tell me if there's anything dangerous being stored there, and in many cases, you may not know that stuff's being stored there. It's easier to think of like a like an oil refinery right or some big complex that Obviously looks like you know, it would be a problem is there was a disaster there, but the West, you know, Texas accident. This just happened in a random looking shed in the middle of a field. You would have no indication driving by this thing that it was storing. No. 60 tons of highly explosive chemical. We'll. Finally How does all this uneven regulation and lack of transparency put people at risk? You know, first responders and firefighters in West Texas and safety advocates have really you know, raised alarms about this after West Texas and then as some of the slightly tougher rules got weakened. In subsequent administrations, they say, you know, it's it's not clear that more could be done, Teo prevent these types of accidents and increase oversight and safety, You know, both from Public knowing what kind of risks air there from first responders and firefighters. That was something that came out the West Texas accident was firefighters that responded didn't really know the full extent of what was being stored there. So people are concerned about this and continue to raise red flags. Joe
A Look at Police Body Cam Technologies, and Where They Fall Short
"The nationwide protests over the killing of George, Floyd brought many things alight from racial inequality to police brutality. One issue that's come back to the forefront is whether or not police body cams are effective tools to hold officers accountable. I'm Roger Jiang. This is your daily charge with me senior video producer Butch Kerry who was a video out today discussing this various you welcome bridget. Thanks for having me. So body cameras really spiked popularity with the police back between fourteen talk about what really sparked this move answer where we are today yeah. It really began with Michael Brown because when he was shot by a white police officer in two thousand fourteen, there was no video footage to show it happened in the officer didn't face charges. So the family came out and Please request thought you know there's a movement that police can wear body cameras that was pushed even further by President Obama also saying that this should be the change for the future. Then there were federal grant setup to help departments pay for them. So you did have this big increase in police departments trying to help their relationship with the community and saying, Hey, we're going to have body cameras now but I mean that was present fourteen and I feel like we're still at the same place which. Is why I wanted to do this report and look into how do they work and why are we still at the same place and it really comes down to how different departments are using the cameras zero zillion talk a little bit about that and just to give our listeners a sense of how broadly there used. I, know you mentioned those grants to the Justice Department awarded place apartments in thirty states more than twenty three, million dollars for body Cam. So how many police officers actually use them? That the data right now, when you look at the statistics, it's looking like about half of our nation right now has officer some way or another obviously is hard to be exactly of small apartments, large departments but right now the idea looks like about half the country has law enforcement wearing some kind of camera or has tested out cameras some. In some way I, mean issues basic the you have officers wear cameras people will change their behavior when they know they're being recorded right there's more trust now when they're when there's a cameras more accountability these really lofty goals for one piece attack at there have been a few snags along the way. Of them being cost of storage because you have all these officers recording when they come into a situation every day. So figure, every officer has maybe three or four hours of recording everyday they have to store in the cloud. Well, how long are they storing that and how much is needing to be saved It's all different depending on every single up police department. So sometimes, it's months sometimes years and you're looking at costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. One department only had five police officers in the little town of Nebraska, and they were looking at something around fifteen grand. A year and this is like not folk is not feasible for every department to pay this because those those grants we talked about they don't cover ongoing storage costs. So some departments have been pulled out of using them because they don't see it's it's useful for them to be paying for it because the storage storage is definitely issued cost is an issue. These unforeseen costs are a real. Red Flag but bring it back to you know the ultimate idea that these cameras were supposed to bring accountability and to prove relations with the community was twenty and we're still protesting about police brutality Take things are worse than they ever are they have been. So what happened how did they fail to accomplish that goal? I wouldn't call them an outright failure, but it certainly is a failure in A. Couple of aspects one It goes back to how these tools are being used for one A officers have the ability for the most part right now to start and stop the recording on their own because they they really feel like you should have that kind of freedom. Do you really want a camera to be always turned on in every instance? No not when you're visiting someone at the hospital Having a private conversation or just you know having your lunch that said, what are the punishments if you don't hit that record button when you were supposed to or finding that there isn't a lot of incentive to do the right thing or I should say you know punishment if you miss a recording when you're supposed to at least that's what a lot of the researchers I talked to were saying that. If if you don't activate your camera, you know what's the consequence for that That's that's one area that's missing. Other area that that's missing is how can the public get access to this footage to be accountable? You countless studies have been done, and most recently they looked at all the studies and said, all right. What's the data we're seeing that there are fewer complaints against police officers. That's a good thing. We're seeing that police officers have footage to say, Hey, look I was justified that this was a false complaint against me. Great cameras are showing the truth in different aspects but a cameras show every angle of the story that happened and the cameras only as good as being able to release the footage. So some researchers I talked to said. We WanNA. See more data on can the public access when they want to receive some change now in New York City the mayor said that anytime now there is an incident where someone killed or seriously injured they will release footage but for a while there was this law that said, they don't have to release anything. We'll as a camera that you know. So so that's really the problem. I it comes down to not having a uniformed a set of rules or standards on win. This footage can be released in how it can be used. To the point of consistency, you mentioned New York City Mayor de Blasio a changes law he's fairly alone. He's he's sort of serve an isolated case right? Because the the rules are very greatly I don't think there's any kind of national mandate to be more transparent about when they released this footage ride, we're starting to see changes win the public points, their camera at a situation and out that officers didn't have their cameras turned on over in. Louisville when there was a shooting at the restaurant owner those officers who did not activate. Their cameras were put on leave a might my questions are okay they're put on leave but they're suspended. Where are you know the the more serious deterrence there? You know what's happening people are losing their jobs over it out win when government realized that the spotlight's on them you know but we have to look at what's going on in terms of using them. There is some technology though that is kind of starting to change that part of it like having a camera automatically turn on when it senses something's happening it could be win a Taser guns pulled out of a holster. It could be also not so serious like when it detects a police vehicle going at a certain speed or detects other kind of check marks author software so that Way If an officer is in the heat of the moment and can't remember to turn on their camera. It does it for them There's also talk about live streaming. So some of the cameras are able to have a superior back at home base tap into what that officer is seen in real time. That is a great advantage. When something serious is going down, they get a real time feedback. But. It's something that they're also can be push back with with police unions going wait a second I don't want someone seeing what I'm doing all times I don't live streaming only a few departments really have started to use livestream I. Think Cincinnati was one of the first that used the teaser brand of version of livestream on their cameras, and that was just February so very early for that technology but there's a lot of talk about that.

But were later told. They were suspected of the murder of Peter. Tway Richards was acquitted upon examination but Burns was held. Due to the testimony of a prostitute. He had previously met.

Mrs Carlsson may transfer property to richards and he settled down for a while in the House with the woman and her three children. Two little girls and a baby boy a farmhand by the name of Brown also stayed at the House Mrs Karlsson's husband Jasper was hiding from authorities in Texas and was not present on the farm during this time period after a while.

She also had a habit of sticking her nose in other people's Business Richards became afraid that she would say something to the wrong person he would be arrested as a result of her gossip. Because of this Richards decided the safest plan was to do away with her in the children to keep everyone quiet one Sunday morning after a few weeks on the farm with Mrs Carlsson and her three Children Richard Scott up about three. Am He had slept with his clothes on and therefore did not need to dress? Richardson woke up Brown. Who went to feed the team and do other things about the stable.

Picked up an axe by the front door and cautiously slipped inside. Richardson approached the bed. Where Mrs Carlsson was sleeping instructor on the left side of the head. The blue kilter almost instantly but to make sure of his work richards hit her a second time near the temple. Then he turned his attention to Harrelson's oldest daughter who is still sleeping. He struck her twice with the flat of the acts on the left side of the head. Also near the temple. Next Richards killed the second girl by striking a single blow on her forehead with the axe. Then he killed the baby boy who laid sleeping in the crib at the foot of the bed with three blows to the head as well then. The oldest daughter still alive moaned and began moving in response. Richard struck her two or three more times until the girl lay. Still all this time. Brown was at the stable and did not return to the House to witness the events after killing the four family members. Richards took the mother to the grave he dug by the Haystack and through her and then he went back carried both girls at the same time and place them in the same hole with their mother. Finally he took the baby and threw him in with the rest. Richardson covered them all over with a blanket and scattered. Straw and dirt over them when he was finished richards. Returned to the house washed his hands which were slightly bloody and then went to the stable. Where Brown was still working after doing a few chores. Richard's and Brown started for Hastings Brown. Who is still unaware of what had transpired? Inside the house remained in hastings and Richards returned to the farm acting like nothing had ever happened. When asked about Mrs Carlsson Richard said that she and the children had gone off with Brown and probably would not return soon if they did it. All in December of eighteen seventy eight richards killed Peter Anderson. The man lived all alone in a little house. Seven Miles Southwest Nebraska. Richards had agreed to help Anderson. Put up some sought buildings after being sick for a day or two Anderson accused Richards of poisoning. Him Richards denied it and Anderson called him a liar. Richards knocked Anderson down. Hit him two or three times and then let him up. Anderson started to pick up an expert. Richards grabbed a hammer that lay nearby instructor farmer.

When he finished he took Anderson's body carried it down seller and covered it up with clan.

They asked for the key to the house which richards gave them and they went in while they were in the house he found the horse and rode home. Richards was quite sure. These men would find Anderson's body and decided it was time to leave Nebraska. He went home change clothes and arrange to have his belongings shipped to Omaha.

Nebraska able to win on Wednesday after a foul was committed or at least call gets Minnesota's severe coffee with what point one seconds to go allowing James Palmer junior Nebraska's leading store to step to the free throw line. Two free. Throws Nebraska escaped with a what point with. But the fact remains that these courthouse cours who were rejected a strong season got off to a decent. Start have lost seven of their last date. Got it their last. Well, but they're not gonna get any sympathy for the northwestern. Wildcats have lost five straight seven of their last nine sexy common between these teams Joe both have a few injuries along the way. Both have some veterans on the roster about play very good defense. But they bit offensively challenged. That's no doubt about that. You feel go percents defense at both teams are very impressed with it. So I if you're looking for whoever wins at three point battle tonight, right? Whoever makes the most threes is probably going to win a basketball game both at Tennessee struggled from the floor. But both have good defense against the three end. The Wildcats had snapped out of their shooting. Slop last Sunday against Iowa ultimately suffered a heartbreaking what point loss, but did shoot the ball. Very well most of the day. But then it gets Rutgers the other night that whole bucket who reared its ugly head together. Wildcats held him thirty six percent shooting for thirty percent from beyond the arc. Their defense was good enough to beat Rutgers. Their offense was not. But the part of the problem for north west is you they don't have the dribble. Penetration causes help. Get you better. Look. So most of the threes are contested threes. Just because you know, the play up into the player not afraid of it on the floor. So get out in transition. Maybe get a couple in transition. Couple of inside out help what area in which both. These teams are pretty good is over the course of the season northwestern turnover fraught ones against Iowa last Sunday. But as far as turnover margin, but Nebraska's third tad steals. They average about seven steals again. They've got a couple of guys who are real spoil Hawk's roster.

"He needs to be able to be the world champion and return for that championship, which then creates. Problems with your fellow one Forty-five powders that are saying God, dammit, you're holding up entire division. So you got to get on with it some way, which inter belt would be a problem. I like intern belts. All I'm suggesting for you. As you said that I don't think you have to do one to the other you have to take his championship away. And I would hope that you want it. But you do see the other problem that creates there's other guys with dreams in that division that are getting held up. We just we can't just do that two guys all the time. So that is where the stripping does come in. And then what ha- I mean? Let's just play this thing through a little bit. Is that a great fight? Yes. I think that it is you're playing checkers instead of chess. I think that that's also appropriate at times. But let's now take it from checkers and making a chess game where you've got to be two or three. Steps ahead. Joel if max is going to move up a sitting and raining dominant world champion is going to move to one hundred and fifty five pounds take on a world champion who doesn't have the belt anymore. But also never lost you go ahead and figure that one out on your own. Can you at least guarantee me the fan that if he wins? Or if Tony whoever wins is officially foreshore, the number one contender is going to go and fight for the belt because you can't promise me that. And I don't know it one hundred fifty five pounds you can make that promise right now when you're sitting champion and your current number one contender are both with how licenses so I don't think you could make that promise because you don't know what we're going to do. So allow me to this scenario for you max Holloway moves up max Holloway gets the jump on. Tony ferguson. Max Holloway is no longer the world champ at one hundred four to five pounds. And by the way, he's no longer the champion at one fifty five. Oh, and by the way, he's not even getting the shot to try. I think that that is a very big ask and less you or somehow lining a guy's pocket unless you are doing something for putting some form of commodity in there that he can see greater than the commodity of his own. Accomplishments in the longevity of his own legacy that he earned. I think that you've got to have a conversation. And it may be as simple as don't take the strap from me, I won't hold it up for long. I'll do this final get right back in. There was some don't take the strap from me if I win take the belt from me, take it right then. Oh, and by the way, I've got to be given a chance to earn the same title at this new way class of which they've got five goddamn guys that have a claim to the number one can championship. They've got three guys that have a rightful claim to the undisputed championship. They have one guy names. Tony Ferguson tell you. That's what I'm be walking around the belt. He's only lost one round in his life and lever. Lost a fight. No end in sight without a license you Tony Ferguson. That was the world champion that never lost the world championship. He's got a claim to the belt to wear. This max, fitted. That's all I'm asking is. Let's just get a little bit of clarity. If you're going to have a guy give up his belt.

"So he says what if you you know, what if you were to get an interim belt, would you fight t would for the championship? He says. No. But he also says we've got that all figured out as soon as he said that I smell the rat. And that rat if unless Ben's just off his rocker, which he may be there. There may be one hundred sixty five pound championship coming down the pipeline. If aspirin. Could get in a interim championship. You see what I'm saying? Are you trying to figure that out? I'll keep talking while you're going on. Let's you got. I've sent the message to I hope I hope to get an update if he's not a practice. We'll have an update for this show. I can't get over this mardi for Nebraska. That's that's funnier than hell. Will you gotta get over it. I can't we can't get to the next topic. Which is now. Okay. You just gotta go with what you said to me here. Here's what your words were for Rask. That's the name. He used to run a wrestler. But then you said, he's your words that this whole Nigerian angle is a bit coming from Ben. Now, I understand that. But what I'm asking is. Are we saying part of the Nigerian angle is the name of Kamar rosement? Or are we trying to make a claim that he is not from Nigeria? I don't know. I mean, you see how that would be your the inside guy you talked about. I don't know anything other than when they when when I listened to this interview Ben was on aerial show. He called the mardi. I've seen Marty from Nebraska in his tweet hilarious who's who's he talking about. And then he said, hey, I, you know, I don't have a problem with Marty from Nebraska, but that's a. Yeah. Okay. But that's what I'm saying. Is that the name of it your words to me where the whole they Jiri thing was a good book? I don't know what Comores ethnicity in his roots are, but I do know for sure he is a black man. So for trying to claim that he is not a black, man. There is also a level of don't forget that gave that pro wrestler that angle on the on the airplane where he blew me off shameless. Shame. Kids. These the red hippo for the audience that doesn't it real Irish guy? He couldn't get a tan if he wanted to me he's like this really white, and I told him he should work at angle where he says he's black and I got that. Because you'll remember when one man gang did that where he came out is what was he careened the African dream. What was that? It wasn't Kareem. I have no idea and draped in my head right now is Marty from Nebraska is Ben Ben go rogue on us. And and is that just a bit? I have no idea. All I know is mardi from Nebraska for Kamar is the funniest thing ever. Is there ever been anything? How did this go on? When you when you got busted before when Rome, busted, you about Spanish guy saying that the bit with Lance Armstrong, and you were like, yeah. That wouldn't be hus- Vanik accent. Yeah. No. That wasn't me at all. No. That was funny when he's played it at it's me. Yes. That would beat barely would that beat that? Would that would Brask? There would only Marty from Nebraska, if it's all made up jor if he doesn't know who been is. They were never wrestling. I don't know where who's been Russell do you. I mean, obviously somewhere in was really really good. Yeah. Well, he was he was juke. Oh, but he was the champ. And I don't know where why I guess it was Nebraska there's pieces of this has has he wanted just put a fake state and fake name on him. Or what he I don't know. We gotta get to the bottom of this. I don't know. But I would love to know what the gimmick is. If it's just the mardi for Nebraska. So it you said you said that it was the whole Nigeria. I'm. I'm not I'm not mixing this up. I'm not accuse you of that..

"I don't know what it was. I was telling you your Dumbo 165 is never going to be a division. It's never going to be a division. And then Ben Ben asking he's all over the place. He's all over the place. Any listen to the show. And I want to know if he's got scoop that he's not letting on Sony way. He he starts. He starts politicking that his next fight. Whether it's against Marty from Nebraska, who I believe is even though he has a. Fight lined up with Robbie Lawler. We'll let a second what's going. He calls. Who's men Marty for Nebraska was going to have? Yeah. What does that mean? He knows them K from collegiate wrestling days. He said he was an all right guy. But he was Marty from Nebraska, and he says this Nigerian bit is a gimmick. Wait. Wait. Wait. What buddy? I'm just telling you. Okay. You try to blow passes this stay here for a second Kamar been is working to stage name according to his Marty according to bend. Now. I don't know what that means. You're Ben, and Ben you guys are boys. So anyway, so he's talking about this whole time. Just please hold on. Hold on before you move on from this hold on only one of two things happening here. Either more who's is stage name his name is Marty of which there's something on. I don't know. What's there? But there's something there or aspirin has made that up completely which would also be very brilliant. I would love to start going to go, by the way, his real name is and they call him are different. But that's very brilliant. And I don't know who the geniuses here. Either Ben for finding this reveal it or for Ben making the whole thing from the beginning. I don't know. But we need to get to the bottom of this. Mark for Nebraska that could catch. That's a shirt right there bag ankle big shirt on that Marty from Nebraska Nebraska's funnier in hell, okay. I thought you would know. So anyway, been even. He's got Robbie Lawler signed sealed and delivered is Politiken to fight either. Kobe because he knows t woods out for a minute or mardi from Nebraska. The bottom of the who what is this about bresca call? I'll get a call. I'll get a bed. The show. I'm gonna stay on this for walk bent on the on the phone. So I'm I'm I watch all bent stuff. I read all been stuff. And and it looks to me Ben is Politiken for an interim belt in his boy tee woods weight of which he has said over and over and over again, we will never fight. So he's on aerial show. A couple of weeks ago, he's doing this whole Marty from Nebraska bit. And I can't believe you. We're going to gloss right over the area. He's hilarious said it one hundred times. Okay. All right. So if I would hurt Marty for Nebraska, I wanted to leave headed to us, but I wanted to just Morty with who's what am I forget whose mardi Nebraska. That means Comorros man, I believe so this is funny. So let me get to my bigger point. Okay. There can't be a bigger point the mardi for Nebraska, mardi from Nebraska Nebraska will take coffee with almond milk. Do they have almond milk? They have to have no one knows. All right..

"So it's only a three man booth. Okay. They don't have the whole card up there. It was George on one side day and in the middle and to being Nick on the other side, which turns into an empty chair at which point Dana, call Cesar Gracie and says where the hell is Nick D as and then even says, I'm gonna cancel this fight. If I can't count on. Them to show up to media. I can't count him on fight day. We're going to move on with somebody else. And he meant it. What ended up happening is sportscenter. Ran it lebatardshow ran it in Jim Rome. Ran it it third. Dana is look I can't get this kind of media. I can't get this kind of attention f s one they did three different shows on the empty chair and Dana Colleen Cesar Gracie. So it was unintentionally. The single greatest piece of what could've Nikki has done at the press conference to be better than that. They would have gotten more attention pull out a joint light at upright. Stay no, nothing not showing up ended up working better than had he shown up. So if you ask what they're going to do. I got no idea. I don't have inside scoop. I do not have inside scoop when I talked to Nate. He says to me the same stuff that you read about in the mount of going to do it. Would they the fights in two weeks? You're Komeda VIN. It's MSG and these guys they keep messing with me. Okay. Nate the fights in two weeks, which major on a plane in a week. Are you getting on that airplane? We'll see what happens. I don't know.

So I would I would have a hand on two different machine. Paul Paul Paul, Paul, Paul. Let's go back in the day. What was the fight? There was a fight that brought us back from the dead. We were we were we were skinned out. We versus cordless Newton. No, no, no. It was huge versus BJ Penn. Okay. Had you had BJ Penn. Matt said BJ Penn. Going to win this fight. Matt didn't know anything about gambling? But you had that you bet like three hundred fifty dollars and it paid two to one. Okay. I just thought that was Newton versus versus us. But you could be right. But I'll tell you one that got a got you back. Don't you? Remember, it was two boxers. Oh, yeah. We went to it. Zoo cost Judah Judah enconced zoo upset him that was that was the night after when we cornered Linlin. Yes. He fought Baroni. That's right. And that's when I knew he man, there's something that USC thing. The UFC the night before the must've been a Friday UC's to play Friday nights, pay per view used to be Friday. And so that was the card where Randy Pedro for the second time Linlin beat up Baroni. Evan beat Homer more and Josh Barnett was in our locker room, and he beat up Bobby Hoffman. Everybody wanted that in that locker room the next night, we go I go to CASA zoo who was a multiple time champion, and he's supposed to get drummed up by Zab Judah. I AKU guy seats the night before I was actually in limits corner with you. I was watching my parlays while I was his corner guy, and they outdrew them the UFC out him. I was like, whoa. This is pretty big. Yeah. This is a pretty big. Yeah. We were on a run. That's when three thousand dollars a lot of money. I like Friday night US's, by the way, I missed Friday night UFC's. Those are good night for pay per view. You. Mentioned the bowl games this weekend. You've got Clemson verse Notre Dame given a bunch of points. And then you have Alabama who may be the best team in the last twenty years playing Oklahoma. I think Oklahoma's getting fourteen points and don't forget, I mean, the big story. Let on that. Because to your point. Yes. Alabama supposed to run through them and everybody else, but they have lost to Oklahoma. The last three times. I it's like it's like Detroit on thanksgiving. They just have this thing. Well, what Alabama has other than just half? They're team is going to play in the pros. They may have to play their backup quarterback while their backup quarterback was twenty nine in one as a starter before he lost his job to the runner up in the Heisman this year. So they're loaded. They're they're loaded. I don't like anybody getting fourteen points. I wanna take fourteen points. I think it's a trap bet. One of the. Those bets either Clemson verse Notre Dame the underdog is is not only going to cover, but as going to win so box it up and bet the dogs take the points in bet the dog, can you tell me something..

"But I, I'm wondering if that affects how strongly visitors consider themselves to be one party or another. We have the primary one thing that rose a little concerning for me. You would go to the door and talk to say a registered democrat and their spouses to the door, and the spouse would actually be democrat but had switched parties awhile ago because they felt there wasn't a point in voting in our primaries. And so that was a little bit concerning somebody who had a challenge primary. And so we ended up trying to, you know, project prompt people, you know, it's important if you want to vote for me in this primary that you would switch your party affiliation. And then you also get a lot of people who feel sort of like their vote doesn't matter because they have this overwhelming sensors too many Republicans and there we can do anything about it. And what I say to that is you know what you need to the. There are so many Democrats in this district that I'm exhausted from knocking their doors. And if we all vote, it's gonna make a big difference. Yeah, in right now, Nebraska. All three congressional seats are held by Republicans. Do you get the sense. That that doesn't accurately reflect what what should be given the the population of the state? Well, we have had a lot of democratic elected officials on this state. The first congressional district has had a Republican in that sense, nineteen sixty seven, so I'm not trying to sugarcoat that our district is challenging, but are Lincoln has a democratically majority city council including the mayor, and that's the biggest voting talk nation faster county. And that's the biggest like one of the bigger areas for voter turn out. And so I don't think that is just it's quite as challenging as the numbers show of the last number of election cycles there has there have not necessarily been a candidate who's running a full campaign like we're doing. So I think the numbers are going to sort of surprise people even if we don't win. I think we're going to get much closer than people expect to see you have a lot of endorsement. Events from variety of different kinds of organizations. Can you talk a little bit about that kind of endorsement process and what those endorsements mean for your campaign? How Vander are nice we have. We've actually have quite a bit more than are currently on our website. When you're in a district where you then people are like, you probably can't win. It doesn't always necessarily come with financial backing, but sometimes what it means is they're gonna visions or people who support us because of the policies we care about. And so like a moms demand, I'm a priority candidate for them, and there's a group of of a moms demand in Omaha who, you know, they were very receptive, our of our policy stances and what we're doing is trying to make sure that we're reaching out to those groups going or pretty open to having newcomers. If you would like to learn how to do this process, we can work with you on how to phone Bank to knock doors and we're pretty welcoming. So we're. Not going to judge you. You know, it's not going so well, there is our voting contests through democracy for America. So our district has been historically sort of we, I don't know that we've always gotten many interest payments just because you're not really trying real hard at the campaign that might be something that falls by the wayside. But car Eastman was endorsed by them. And then we were endorsed for the general. And I think that they were, we don't have a lot of money, but we were still endorsed because they can see that we have this great momentum building from our primary and that people really support our campaign. And so these endorsements are showing you that national level Nebraska's..

"So break their civic duty and responsibility and get involved in in the process. I met spoke with the woman in Nebraska, which is outside the Konami and she shared with me that she's been nineteen protests in twenty three months. And I said, wow, holy cow, that's a lot of protests. They said, do you normally pretended thinking she's a throwback. Back to the seventies and she goes, no. 'cause I never done anything political in my entire life. But she said I couldn't sit on the sidelines anymore, either stand up under the speak out, and she never realized that our democracy could be this fragile. And so that's what we're hearing from a lot of people and I love it. I love people getting energize involved in the political process. You have two adult children, and I think they're probably millennial generation. What are you hearing from that generation and the younger people in Nebraska, you know, I know it's a big college state is. So are you, are you feeling that energy in the younger generation as well? Are people getting out to think they're going to be voting in large numbers this year? We do see an increase in the tournament and I can tell you, I remember Lincoln city council. So last may twenty seventeen. We saw an increase of voter turnout. In our city council races at large seats, we saw an increase of turnout about three percent of Democrats nonpartisan. So there's no doubt the base is energized and they're engaged. And part of that is young people in our community, and certainly March for our lives was a big catalyst. It is amazing how inspiring the Parkwood students have been to all of to get engaged and to speak out. And they inspire me and they give me courage to to speak out on commonsense gun safety measures and they're reading the way. So I'm saying that you know what of young people, you know, Balik of women voters of been very instrumental imaging out to those high school students that are turning eighteen or soon to be turning eighteen to get them registered to vote. And we see sell things get sent around with their voter registration card. You know, probably display, you know, this is my vote. My voice and I'm gonna hold. You elected officials accountable, and that is exciting to see as well. So we certainly hope that they participate like they did in the March for our lives. They had March and Lincoln the capitol in Omaha, but then they had in central Nebraska. They had a March in the city of pay things grand island and Kearney, and overly out in western the bresca and stuff. So this this movement is really energizing so many young people and they know that there is a lot steak for whatever their issue that matters to them. He goes gun safety or is it protecting our firemen, doing everything we can to elect leader to believe in climate change and are willing to engage in renewable resources in go in that direction? So I mean, they have been have a lot of issues that they bring to our attention all the time, and I think they're willing to to vote where they want their officials to go, which is great. Are there other issues, things fate? You wanna make sure that we talk about, I think whenever we travel around Nebraska, the one thing that really sticks out in my mind is that Nebraska are independent minded people we always have, and and I think he mentioned at the very beginning where you. No, such a conservative state or you know, it's funny, it's it's sort of either Republican friends are much better at messaging or we'd just become very much, but it's only been it's only been six years. One short Senate election cycle since we laughed padded Democrats in the US Senate that we send our been nothing. And we have this great tradition before Senator Bob Kerrey before about Kerry's Exon before the next on inference keeps them. We have very proud tradition..

"I'm here in this segment with Jane rebelled who is running for the US Senate from Nebraska. Hi Jane, low camera. It's great to be here. What you? Yeah, I'm really excited to be speaking with you. I'll start with our usual first question, which is, tell me a little bit about your background. Why you've decided to run for Senate? Well, you know, I'm a fourth generation Nebraskan second generation grocer. I run our families grocery stores in bresca. We have nineteen stores with over two thousand employees, so I really enjoy working in the grocery industry, and I started exit nine years old was helping to make change under the fireworks tent in the parking lot of my parents very first grocery store in Lincoln, Nebraska then went on to washing pans and the bakery departments. And then I, I tell people, but through this job of ours frying and decorating Donut than the basically department. So that's kind of my claims the same and I went on. I graduated from Creighton university in Omaha, and then went onto graduate school in Indiana University and finished up at Georgetown University in Washington, DC as the grocery I hear from our customers every single day. You know, our grocery stores up Nebraska are truly a gathering place for neighbors and the community to come together. And you know they've expressed. There. There are real concerns about the impact of administrative policies on them and their families. And you know, I listened to them. I listened to the seniors who are concerned and worried about the retirement of security and Medicare is that gonna be there for them, and I realized I couldn't sit on the sidelines anymore, and I, I had to speak out and I wanna be the voice for so many families that come through our doors. And so what kind of reception have you gotten as you'd think going around? So right now, of course, there's a Republican incumbent in the seat whom you're running against, and you know, I think a lot of people think of Nebraska's a very Republican state, but, but what are you hearing on the ground is you're talking to people. Where it current funny in the background should be on the two commercials that we've been running talking about. You know, my background is Dilbert fryer you know, my original starts in the grocery industry. And so the two questions people ask me all the time are don't have any donuts on you. Or when it comes to Senator Fisher, we've been calling out, send their fishing because in one of our ads, we point out that her net worth at skyrocketed since she's been a US Senator from three hundred thousand over four million dollars and so and I traveled throughout Nebraska. The second question people ask me, how did she get so rich? And so these are the questions that no Nebraska's wanted to know. You know, they want, they want to Senator who's going to represent them and they wanna Senator who whose vote can't be bought. And I think those are the issues that were hewing from Nebraska. But you know, they're really critical issues that they care so deeply about its healthcare. You know, our Nebraska families are seeing their premiums increase. They're saying the cost of prescription drugs rise and it goes back to Senator Fisher. Her votes hurting the baskin's in. You'll hear from Nebraska farmers as you are. You know, well, aware of the terrorist and the retaliation from Chinese and the very serious impact it is having on our farming families income in. It's pretty scary. So I hear from Nebraska's about that a lot. And of course are seniors who who are worried about making sure that social security and Medicare is going to be there for them and their next generation. But they're even seeing a pinch in their social security checks..
