"Groups to move forward with this very difficult in fact they didn't get You know getting these sort of approvals has been downright impossible for many organizations so What we've what has happened is a lot of observational studies. What's actually been happy on the ground. What's happening in palliative care clinics. What's happening in hospices. How do how do palliative care health professionals feel about all of this. But i would say in the last two to three years. We've been seeing more research. There was a recent study by a group led by a felon good out of the united states. North western united states. They looked at patients who were using or who were wanting to use this product. They had Thc in cbd available to them. They asked them to find a dose that worked for them. So there was a dose attrition part of the study and they instead of just looking at just one symptom. You know. Let's focus on pain. They said here's a whole bunch of symptoms. That could be the trouble. Tell us what you think about this. So they started to look at kind of overall picture. A holistic picture of what's going on with these patients They looking at a global impression of change and they found that out of these patients. It's forty four percent said that they had benefit in number of areas. They were using. What's called the edmonson symptom assessment scale than they were the e sas showed that benefit there and almost half of them said that there was an improvement in their global impression of change. There is significant improvement in anxiety and depression factors or or depression measurements and we were able to get a better idea of dosing for this so you know patients were using up to about five to ten milligrams of thc They were using much more. Cd than. i think that we were used to you. Know the range. Was i. If i remember correctly ten or fifteen to three hundred milligrams a day of cbd and these were patients who were finding the dose. That worked for them. You know the the tolerance as well as the benefits so looking at that study. It gives us a better sense that yes. Cancer are of palliative care patients. Maybe frail but they certainly can be studied. This product is safe in these patients and we have to be able to Be open with patients and let them start to sort of do a little bit of titrate themselves so there is that study. I think is a key study in palliative medicine. It's going to really define where we should go afterwards. okay so where did you get your training from. I mean obviously you artists. Obviously you are physician colleges. She went through the. You went through that specialized training. How did you learn about pot. How did you become the puck. Oh man you know. A lot of it was learning on the fly. Some of it was learning from the patients. You know when you have patients that are experienced in the use of let's say recreational cannabis. I sit them down. And i wanna know what have they used. How do use you know that. Sort of thing And i will say Having a community of physicians the cic consortium of of cannabis producers or or cannabis researchers and clinicians has been really really helpful. Because when something comes up oh you know..

And if you look around the room, maybe there should be more people of color in there. Because this city is so diverse and then maybe there's a perspective that's missing. But the point is to say, Okay, now we're just going to take certain people let him in. That means everybody else's impulsively racist or with other reporters can't cover this night. I think it was bad. In a bad way to do it. If you have an issue caught that, you know the people that run the news outlets and tell me what more people we want more diversity. I think that's better way to do it now, before or just just grant those interviews is the way every mayor before has ever done. Mayor Emanuel had his favorites. Mayor Daley had his fair. They all have their favorites, and they go to them and they call upon them and they say, Yeah, sure will fulfill that request, And you do that, And that's how mayors have always operated. I think She was trying to make a point about equity. And I think with this lawsuit, this is a good journalist at a conservative news outlet, The daily caller and I think he's trying to make a point to me. This is about more than politics and damages and discrimination. I believe maybe that's the way you read it, too. Yeah, Kind of. Who is? Were you ever a mayor's favorite reporter? I don't think so. I haven't. I haven't really been a favorite of Yeah. Thanks for laughing. Thanks. Thanks a lot. I know you're not supposed to, and sometimes you'd sort of be upset in the past.

But even before the shoes on the radar of a lot of people because I did a lot of police reporting, and so I found her to be a very measured voice about those kinds of issues, particularly because of life experience. But before that, you'd always see certain made Mayor's just give them to the people who I perceived, is giving softball interviews. And so that does happen. It has happened and Guy started.

"Vision. Yeah that makes complete sense so if you can elaborate a little bit on. What were some of the reasons or motivations. Then that led you to leave north western. 'cause we talk about their needing to be pushed impulse so you talked about some of the opportunities in being able to bring on someone like p and bring the business more upmarket and compete for larger type opportunities. But how come you weren't able to do that. The northwestern will i think when you're in an institution and again any institution. They have to sort of run that institution and i don't wanna say the lowest common denominator because i think that's kind of negative. But they have to run the sitution at more of where the average person isn't and if nothing else is just because of just capacity you know you can't have a whole bunch of people doing a whole bunch of different things one because you want to protect your institution against people making mistakes and also you just can't oversea at all. So i think what is happening is once you become an outlier. It becomes a difficult place to be. We just became an outlier so we were asking bill to do things that people might marketplace do but it. It wasn't something that they had the resources or had the interest in doing. And so that was just part of the problem. And i think that a lot of people kind of run up against that you know sorta ceiling and i also like just being at a conflict and again. I think that they do a great job. And they represent their clients well. But i always felt that there were some conflicts like at idiots sitution and i just wanted to be at a conference. I just want to represent my clients. I don't wanna represent solutions. I don't want to have any bias. I just want to represent my clients if they need insurance great if they don't insurance great whatever the assets are we wanna to bring the best assets at the best price and there should be any opinion from any other outside party influencing any of those decisions but again you know we were able to build a great business there and if we stayed there we'd have a great business today. I just think that it's given us an opportunity to build a bigger business and from a recruiting standpoint. It's given us tremendous flexibility because we have advisers that aren't interested in the insurance business at all so there are no requirements on the insurance side. Some of them just wanna be advisory only they don't even want to be broker dealer affiliate. That's perfectly fine with several custodians. Some of our people are hybrid model with us. Some of them are advisory only again. We're agnostic whatever is the best approach of the best set a platform for an advisor. That was joined the firm.

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

News from on the phone line is Superintendent David Brown from the Chicago Police Department. Superintendent Brown Thanks for joining us here on WGN radio. Morning, John, How are you really good. I've got two things. I just want to bounce off of you. What is the latest on the effort to curb the Carjackings in Chicago? First of all number one. We have a task force committed that we've added on additional 40 officers. Today We have 229 total Carjackings in the city. And we've made scalloped police officers have made Ah 158 arrest with a note most notable last night where another teenager 13 year old. Carjacked the individual and we caught this person. Um through a photo lineup. Who is 30 on stole a car that had a manual transmission and he couldn't drive it and we were able to identify him through. Uh, the victim, uh, in a photo lineup, So this is all about These teenagers and persuading them to make better decisions while at the same time holding them accountable by bringing him to justice. 13 year old doesn't go to jail for very long, though, do they? A 15 year old in a 16 year old doesn't go to jail for a very long do they? There's a fast revolving door, John, you hit the nail on the head. It is the most significant challenge we have. When the levers of justice Just don't have the significant consequences for our young people involved in them and empower them to do more and more, And this is reckless behavior. John at some point Worst nightmares will come to fruition with these young people, and these guns are jacking people being confronted by our police officers. Well, Superintendent Brown. So, the Cook County state's attorney, says your worst nightmare will be realized. If you put them in jail for a long time. That's where these criminals become hardened criminals. But a lot of people think that maybe we need to change the laws so that you Can't put them away for longer. Punish them or severely. Where are you on that? You know, our justice system works at his best when criminals whether young or old, have consequences. I mean to be able to have a guilty verdict. On a sentence is our prevention for crime when you don't have that as a consequence. You know, I would argue you have chaos and anarchy. It's why it's why our founding fathers have to justice and that we have you know you have tried before a jury. If you're guilty, you have a sentence when you don't have that I would argue with officers are doing a great job, but they're chasing their tail Superintendent Brown. Are you saying that we need to be tougher on the prosecution side that more of these cases need to not be charged out or bargained out? Lied down. I'm not for mass incarceration of our young people. That's not what I'm saying. But I think you draw the line when you talk about violent crime car jackings are violent crime. Our justice system works at its best. When we put violent offenders in jail, it keeps us all safe. I think the line to be drawn is when a 13 year old 40 year old points a gun to someone's head and take their gun. God forbid someone is killed by got retired fire lieutenant was killed. Those young people have to be brought the justice. I understand that. But then what do we need to do to make that happen? What do we need to be more resolute about this? I think one of the things that we've asked from the public years to be part of this debate. On be very firm on your position. We all want to be safe. This issue obviously is about the criminal justice system for our young people, but just just as a reminder overall We haven't had a jury trial in 10 months, John. The court system is for practical purposes. Shut down when you don't have juveniles are adults. Facing trials on Gliese the threat of a conviction. It's much more difficult to put all of the burden on police officers to do everything we can't be just your And jailer. Well, Superintendent Brown might just to raise these issues this time for our court systems toe open up, and it's time for our juvenile justice system to draw the line where violent young people have significant consequences. Is that the state's attorney's office that's not doing that. It's it's the system, so I don't think it's Very, very helpful for me to go back and forth with individual, you know, people like you know the state's attorney or whatever I get where you're going, But that's not my point. My point is This is the healthy debate. That is about all of our safety. And if, at the end of the day we weigh all think which I do. Violent offenders need to have two different consequences. Younger old Make that case to our criminal justice system that includes our judges who make the decision not the state's attorney. Our judges make the decision to release the state's attorney can make the case. That we need to have a little more leniency when it comes to young people. But our judges make the decision. I'm glad you said that I am asking you to point the finger. I am trying to figure out where it is. If it's not the state's attorney's office, then maybe it is the judicial system. I'm glad you mentioned that. I also understand that these 40 officers are investigating these crimes. What's being done to prevent.

"He covers City Hall joining us Now, Greg is this is busy a day or is it coming down a little bit? I know these have been pretty pretty hectic in your world. You know it's up and down, but even the down is pretty up. Usually You know something else I saw here. Alderman Brand new Riley changed his Twitter background to pot Paradise Alderman. He seems to be pretty upset. It's one of the things that's coming out of City Hall right now. There. Mayor is not really keen. Or maybe she's already shut down the idea of having one of these marijuana dispensaries in the downtown district, which would be his ward, and he's not happy about it. Yeah. You know, it's not necessarily knew because the mayor has been opposed to it from the beginning. She said. She didn't wanna make it, uh, you know last year and even 2019. She said that She didn't wanna make it into take away the family friendliness of it. You know, as though she doesn't want people's selling weed right outside the bean, which is probably something that everybody would agree on. But she is she's taking it pretty hard line from the beginning against weed downtown, and the position now is that with storefronts vacants emptying out and all the vacants after the civil unrest in the pandemic. There is some pot businesses want to come down. They should. And the mayor dismissed it way out of hand yesterday and she said that, you know, she doesn't want it to be a pop paradise, which I think some people, um And you can see the Alderman. Two are rolling their eyes at because they would say nobody's trying to make downtown upon paradise, Although it is a good throws. It is a great phrase, and he's gonna use it. I'm sure I don't know if he's totally lost. This bet. Would you say it's done done? Not gonna happen. Or you think that there might be some discussions Still, would we ever see it? A downtown dispensary in the near future. I think what all the men Riley has on his side is that it doesn't make business ends. Put a dispensary business down there somewhere. And so there's going to be economic and financial pressures of the city. He is a fairly prominent and influential all the man he's not. You know, Um, he's not just one of 50. Here's a prominent alderman with a prominent ward, who, um, who is respected by his colleagues that said, it is hard to get something done. If the mayor doesn't want to get it done in this town, and even Even with all the chaos that has happened on their middle life that is still true, so to be determined We're not turning Michigan Avenue into the pot paradise, she said. His response, though, and he's already kind of taken a social media about it saying that, you know, look, there are no quality of life for crime related issues that directly Surround these dispensaries that they're currently operating. So it'll be the same. Downtown is his argument. He's also making the economic argument last night checked, We're broke. Couldn't we use a downtown sort of one? Maybe it's not a Michigan Avenue on the central business district or something like that. Maybe it's kind of off on one of the side streets around there something but Wouldn't it make sense economically, to do that kind of thing. They have been hugely profitable, right? Yeah, he made he made the point that you know. Next time they say we're broke and we need to raise property taxes. This is exhibit a form. Yeah, right. That's that is the other argument. You also have this ward by ward breakdown of Chicago Carjackings, Alderman. I guess they released it to the alderman. Police did Did you see anything that you looked through that data? I know it's 2018 2019 and 2020. They go ward by ward and describe how many There have been in each year. Anything you've got from that, Greg. Well, it's pretty astonishing just how widespread it is. It's literally all over the city. Um You know, from part of why it's gotten more attention is that a lot of Um, it Z hitting areas that don't get a lot of crime. And so that's scary. But there's also some pretty horrifying data for even areas that Have a lot of crying, so I live in Little village and I'm right next to the North Lawndale, which is much of it is the 24 Ford and they have a astonishing amount of Carjackings. And it's especially astonishing because it Zapata it's award with With relatively little population. So 40 Carjackings in that ward go a lot further than you know, 40 Carjackings in. You know the 42nd Ward downtown, which has so many people in it, so it But it is it is a citywide problem, and it is something that every single alderman black, white and Hispanic really cared about. It is really concerned about because they're hearing about it. For sure. And I heard that some of that very passionate city council like us, a committee meeting on Carjacking, trying to bring folks together the victims who spoke who had been victims of Carjacking themselves and others. I mean, just sort of a passionate cry for help here. And I wonder if when you look at what the city has proposed right now, if you think it makes a difference, are they adding some more cops created to these Carjacking units and some other things they're doing. That's a great question, you know, obviously more. More help is always good, whether or not but you know if you put in a bunch of health and you don't have a strategy, or you don't have a clear strategy that's also um not helpful. So you know, I would guess that the police Department would say We have a pretty good strategy. I think that, um the results will They're out whether that's true, but obviously, um, you know, the other end of that is saying we're gonna put 40 more cops. You know, that's not even one per ward and so It's not. Ah, that is a relatively low amount. But you know what else are they gonna say? Right? They're not going to say Well, we're working on it. They need to, uh We need the get the situation under control. First of all, because it is It is actually a real problem. And then they have the political problem of wanting the look like they're trying to get it under control, which is A very important issue for them. Yeah, No, no doubt about that, And I mean, look, it's it is It's an important issue for all of us that I applaud them for trying to do something. Whether this is a solution that will start. We'll start seeing a difference. I don't know are we had like 200 Carjackings for the month. That's the last estimate. I heard. Yes, It's absolutely crazy out there and people are people are concerned people from all put. The other thing is people also from all political ideologies and from all Walks of life. I had a friend who I don't think it's somebody who you know lives. An exaggerated fear of Chicago was telling me that you know there. He just got a new car for their household and they're concerned about you know, what is that going to attract the carjacker? And then they have Ah, young kid, And so, um So it is a real big concern out there and it's really you know, it's also The other thing about, you know, just adding some more. Some cops, for that is is we still have a violence problem dead that was out of control last year. I don't know quite what? How the numbers add up, but it's so something to keep Avenger. So CPD has his hands full. Yeah, no doubt about that. Greg Pratt. Thank you. Thanks for the time this afternoon. Always like hearing from you. Thank you. Gregory Print.

"Like Monday. Yeah, I know it feels that way, doesn't it? Well stock futures pointing to a higher opening. What's going on? Well, I think we've got you know we have the transition of power if you will, starting tomorrow. We have Janet Yellen on the hill today for her confirmation. And I think that's one of the things that that investors are focused on is the likelihood of additional stimulants that Janet Yellen will be backing and continued easy money by the Fed. They talked about it last week. The drone Powell is talking about, you know lower for longer for interest rates. So all of that is far as the stock market goes, is very good news for for investors. The financial markets don't seem to be concerned about the transition of power that that's already the reaction already. Woz correct. Yes. And that and again, you know, even on that day, where you had all the protests and going on and the the storming if you will of Congress. Market was actually up that day, and it was up the following day. So I think investors were looking through that thing. This is more of a one time event, then it's the start of something that we really need to be concerned about. And I think that's why The market did what they did in as we've talked about. There is a difference right now between the financial markets in the economy and wool of that. Is rooted in the virus and all of us being able to move about the country on do what we used to do. And until that happens, it's gonna be a little bit more difficult. I think for the economy they catch up to the stock market. About inflation. Are you and your colleagues concerned about that? We're getting concerned about it. We're starting to tick up now in corn prices and soybean and some of the metals like copper and a lot of the inputs that we seem to a lot of businesses. Manufacturing has been very good, and that's part of the reason why we're seeing an uptick in a lot of those places. The Fed has said. You know we want we want the economy to run hot. We want inflation to be above 2% for a lot because it's been 2% or lower for the last five or six years. So the fear is that inflation gets away from the fact we're not their yacht, but it's something that we're starting to get a little bit more concerned about because we're starting to see Those prices rise probably in about 2.5 to 3% rate over the last three and six month period when we haven't seen that in 5 to 7 years or so. Andre again with the comments from the Fed being very dovish or being very monetary easing. That's a concern for some people, in part, the reason why we're certain see Gold prices pick up we're seeing interest rates. Stirring the rise just a little bit of well, like the markets overdue for a pullback of some sort. I'm they happen for a while. You know, since September we've only had I think about five week where the markets have actually declined. Last week's decline was 1%, and everybody was getting all nervous about it. That was the worst decline in one week that we've had since Halloween. So 1% the clients, no big deal and three or 5% decline. We see that anywhere between three and five times a year, and that's kind of the market breathing. We haven't seen that. I think a lot of that is because of What is happening with the Fed and the stimulus package is coming out of Congress as well. All of that is continuing to bolster stock prices and continue to rise so I think that's one of the fears that we have is that things were getting just a little bit euphoric a little bit, maybe not bubbly. But certainly investors air very, very confident that stock prices will be significantly higher in the near an intermediate term future and when everybody's on one side of the boat It's usually the side that's going to get wet. And Paul Multi writes in his latest newsletter that investors continue to gradually move out of tech. How come Paul? Well because again, the thought is that the vaccines that we're starting to see rollout. We're already seeing some of the Illinois We're starting the world back some of the restrictions in a lot of people to get out. That that will continue. And by summer, we're going to see something a little bit closer to normal in the lockdown that we've been experiencing over the last nine months. Technology has been a big beneficiary of everybody staying at home, and I don't think technology is gonna be that same beneficiary. When we start getting out and doing things you're gonna see Cruise lines do while you're gone. He traveled do well, You're gonna see restaurants. You're going to see services do well. In that part of the stock market has done very poorly up until probably about the last two months or so in those stocks have started to rise now and anticipation that People are gonna be able to go out and spend all the stimulus directions. They've been getting on those services and that is, I think, where the action Maybe if you will, over the next 69 months. Yeah, I've been saying, and I certainly don't know anything about finances, but There's such a pent up demand to go out to a restaurant to travel to go to a concert. When we condone all these things, there's going to be a tremendous rush, and I guess that's what you're saying with those stocks, right? Right, And it's part of the reason why the economic numbers looking for is they do it because that part of the economy has been really shut down for the better part of the last year. You know, we haven't really been able to send in the service side of hotels, airlines, etcetera. They've been limping along at that, and that's a big part. It's usually by that bit about two thirds of the economy and that part has been suffering. The manufacturing side has been doing very well. Is there making stuff for us to buy? Lying in technology has done well, but it's not the sense the whole economy. That's why we're still seeing the unemployment number. Hi. We're seeing the weekly jobless claims pick up and some of the economic data looking poor, and it's all related to the service side of the economy. Which would like to get going again and that requires us to be able to get out and do this. That's a thing I know you can't answer this question in the minute we have left. But can you try to explain Bitcoin to me? I keep keep hearing about how it's going up up up. Yeah, And is it going to continue to t go up? It is in my mind appear speculative vehicle. It's a commodity. It's been called Crypt of Gold if you will. But right now it's hurt for me to understand how I'm going to use Bitcoin and actually spend it at Walgreens or on at a bar. And with that volatilities, it feels as a currency that definition of currency have failed on all three levels of the definition of currency. So it's hard to see how that's going to gain traction. So many information behind Bitcoin what they called the block chain or the the sequencing of all the transactions, then I think has some value. But there's over 2000 different crypto currencies, but Queen is one of them. So I'm not seeing how this is going to be something that's gonna work in the future other than speculation today, So the email I got from my boss here, WGN, suggesting that they would be willing to pay me in Bitcoin starting next week. I should say no. Uh, you know, like I said, for the short term, you know, you could be getting paid 20% higher. You girls shouldn't be getting paid 30% lower. Um, so it's Yeah, it's in my mind. It's more casino money than it is on investment. I got you. Well, No, they senior VP a king's view Wealth management. Always good to talk to you. Thanks, Paul. Have a great day.

I just want to point that out. Don't know no doughnuts. Let's get to your main restaurant review this morning. What did you check out? I went to a restaurant called Hubbard's Cave. Remember Hubbard's cave still called Hubbard's Cave. Well, they changed Hubbard's cave to what the burn is burn under strange. Yeah, well, Hubbard's cave is on 63, 43 West, Grosse Pointe Road and Niles. And it's recommended by my wife. Any Haynes, who was wondering why I never give her recommendations out. Yeah, well, you gotta be careful. Yeah. Happy wife. Happy life that's at the Police department will not help you in that department. So Hubbard's cave is it's an interesting it's It's in an interesting neighborhood. It's It's an interesting place. Because of if you don't live up by Grosse Pointe Road. Um which is it skims the edge of Chicago. Uh, and it It's a diagonals. Diagonals Street goes from Caldwell all the way up to forget where, but Um It's open. It goes right through from one part of Chicago to another first Chicago and it's almost all Industrial. It's all office buildings, factories, and when I don't know how many times I drove past this place without realizing it was a restaurant. I've probably gone by it. I do not recall seeing it. And even now, even when we went looking for it from the front, it does not look like a restaurant. It's actually a brewery. So the part of the building facing Grosse Pointe Road looks like kind of an office building or a warehouse or something like that, And when you drive around and you're in the parking lot on the backside, then you could see the tent where they have a big, huge tents set up and the entrance to the restaurant, which is in the back. So is there a sign of Hubbard's cave sign out front that indicates a restaurant sign that says Hubbard's cave. So it's very easy to find Once you go looking for it. However, it doesn't look like a normal restaurants to see. It. Looks like a business business. Yes. Oh, it's uh s so It's really nice. You got big silver letters. But unless you know it's a restaurant you would've thought have been like Rock climbing place or something else. But S O the restaurant is is in its inside the brewery, and it's on Lee segment it off from the brewery by like waist high walls. On. Then they have the tables, and there's a bar on one end and where you order on the other end paper carry out now It's yeah, open for carry out. They do have a tent said I'm gonna have a patio for, you know, Nice days as a big tent with the sides and the heaters and everything. So it's They do do some endure intent. Dining, but the brewery is wide open. You could see everything that's going on in the brewery, and I mean they have the big old barrels. Everything's barrel aged. They have this this great old beer. I mean, like an age beard is dark and what's the specialty of the place? It's a barbecue place, so they have their specialty. I thought, at least what I liked best was the brisket. They were smoking it all day. So they have some coming off little by little on. That's one of those things, too. When you get close again to the day when they run out there out, you can't make up brisket in an hour. It takes right good brisket takes a long time. So Uh And they also have pork belly burnt ends, which, alright in pork bellies, a terrible name, But it's really where bacon comes from. Is the pork belly and so the instead of cutting it like bacon, they cut it up like a little cubes. Sure. On. It's crispy and bacon and scrape so that there's Nile smell like barbecue in that particular area. Yeah, when you're in the back, although I guess I didn't pay attention when I was in the front of the building, but in the back of them And I see on your list here that they also have a gluten free corn bread. Yeah, the guy I was talking to the chef. I'm sorry. I can't rumors that I'm terrible with names. But I was talking to Stephanie event you You're not even have a problem with the names of people you arrest. Remember everything. Yeah, but the I talked to the chef who has ah, bunch of gluten free relatives, So we started experimenting with gluten free stuff. And they have a few things. They identify things on the menu that are gluten free, like pulled pork over sweet potatoes, but the they also make a gluten free corn bread. Anybody who's gluten free and who really likes pie with you. That's one of the things you miss. So it was good having it. You know, it does not tell as with anything cool free taste as good as the real corn bread. On the other hand, most of the places I go don't make corn bread like I learned how to do it. When I was in the military and the Southern with the actual corn in the corn bread, it's hard to find the real hell there. And so this place brisket brisket, chili. And it sounds great. And again.

The roads were winding and narrow Drop right off the side of the mountain. It was nine tom. So we're taking our time.

In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. Correctly, but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. What are we talking about today? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, national? Monument. Doesn't get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. Correct. So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, Arizona Utah Colorado? New Mexico but what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the national parks in Arizona. Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. So we do repeat some things these days. In fact, I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.
Uprooted, a Book by Page Dickey
"It begins with an Anton chekhov quote. it says I am in the condition of transplanted tree, which is hesitating whether to take root or begin to wither, and it looks like you took root page. So tell us a little bit sort of set the scene about this transition for us. Well. I. Think in the beginning and and certainly when when I didn't know whether I might with her it was it was very hard to leave. my old garden I'd been there for thirty four years. my husband join me for the last fourteen of and and it was. A place. Created over the years with just tremendous amount of love and passion and and to just walk away from that was was difficult But. After much searching and and lots of. Panic when we really couldn't find anything right away we decided to move to North Western Connecticut and we found a plot of land that took my breath away and. Because, it was full of fields and woods and wildland and a view. Of the Berkshire Hills and It started me on a new adventure and I think that's when. I realized I wasn't gonNA weather. We didn't have to irrigate. Don't worry. She's GonNa. Be. Okay. Oh how how did so so you had been at Duck Hill. For those thirty four years and so you came to start again in said, this piece of property was breathtaking. It took your breath away and. But How do you know where to begin because? Both of us, we were much younger gardeners much less experience crash when. When we began our where I still live around same time as when you went to kill and where in your your work at Duck Hill. So we were experimenting with different things We're at a different stage in our as I said in our experience. You know. Like what lessons? Where did you begin? How did you know what to do I when you got to this new place? Do you know what I mean like what what did you say? I've got to DOT DOT DOT? Yeah. Well, first of all, they were remnants. Of, a garden. As sort of cottage garden in the front of the House and and. And although it, it crossed my mind just wipe it all out I didn't and it was mostly just peonies and. So. I knew that I wanted to play with that and that would be my. Perennial Garden you might say or place perennials. and. Bulbs and a place we walk through every. Time. We go inside and out. So So it would. It would be a fun place to have that sort of a garden. But I realized. Almost. Immediately I didn't want a garden like I had Kale Duck Hill was Full of hedges and. And Boxwood topiary and. It was a series of rooms and it was very enclosed. And this new place where we lived was open to the sky and open to the fields and open to the view and I realized I didn't want. hedged. Garden anymore I wanted something that related to that wildness. So I I think I knew pretty much right away that I wanted a lot of natives in the in the in this. Little. Garden things like M. Sonia and Baptista and astor's and so on. And But then at the same time, I was thinking about what to do about this little garden. I was starting to explore. In the woods we I think we have about eleven acres of woods. And I got so excited about the woods, we have high rocky limestone dramatic woods on one side and low rich. Damp. Woods on the other side and I got so excited about. This wildland that all of a sudden. We were the stewarts of. that. I was almost torn. Half interested in creating a new garden. Half of me just wanting to start walks start pass in the woods and start cutting down the invasive. and. So that was a whole new world that excited me right from the beginning

Comet C2020 Remains Visible Until Late July
"See twenty twenty was discovered in March by Nastase Neil wise mission now the comet is getting the attention of sky watchers. Hemisphere neo. Wise the infrared wavelength space telescope, for which the comet has been named, was re purposed specifically to identify and characterize near Earth objects as the telescope I caught sight of the comet. It was a fuzzy dot moving across the sky when astronomers realized how close the comet would come to the Sun. They hoped it would put on a good show, and no one has been disappointed. The comet has been relatively easy to observe with binoculars or a small telescope and a clear view, but comets are notoriously unpredictable, so it's impossible to know if this one will remain easy to see. Observers looking to the north western horizon just after sunset are hoping for a glimpse of the glowing ball and streaky tale before the comet speeds away in late. July
Travel to Brittany France
"Today, the amateur traveler talks about walled towns and standing stones, beaches, and folk festivals, pirates, and you boats as we go to Brittany in France. Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris? Christensen. Let's talk about Britney. I'd like to welcome to the show Kristen Montgomery from growing global citizens dot com who come to talk to us about the region of France known as Brittany Kristin welcome to the show. Thanks Chris and I want to say the Duchy of Brittany, but that's really not the term anymore so. It's definitely part of France officially where we talking about. So Britney is located in north western France, and as you said, it used to be a duchy, but in the fifteen hundreds it was incorporated as part of France basically taken over a against their will, so there's still a very strong regional identity. There are some people that still identify as being brought tone before their French slump. And why should someone go to Britney? Britney is a place that is not usually on lots of travelers lists. Obviously, if you're going to head to France, you think of Peres you think of southern France provence or niece, but there are a lot of really great things to see in Britannia, Britney there are beautiful beaches first of all, and it's actually sand beaches, unlike the rocky beaches that you find down south. It's a great place for a multi generational trip. So if you're traveling with family, it would be an excellent place to visit because it's a little bit less touristy, less crowded. There are more things to do that are in small towns out in the country. And it has this Celtic identity like I said the the Britain identity that really is not found in any other place in France, and so you're going to be hearing things like bagpipes for music. You're going to be seeing traditional dancing, even some of the Breton, language. and. I found that people here were really very very friendly. which is something that I hate to say, but sometimes and other parts of France especially, you think of Paris. They don't really have the reputation of being very friendly, but people here really took the time to be able to chat. And if you're someone that likes history or is into myths and legend Brittany has a lot of that, too. Excellent. What Are you going to recommend for us? So I would recommend starting in Ren, ren is in the eastern part of Brittany. And you can fly in, or you can take the train. The TJ evade from Paris. It's about an hour and forty five minutes. There are international flights into rent from other places in Europe, but I don't think there are any from the US or from north. America directly. If you're looking for a place, that would have more connections. That would be a bigger city. You can also fly into note, which is farther south and not officially right now is no longer part of Brittany in the administrative region, but it was part of that she. And there is a quite a bit to see there, too. So I won't talk about that today, but that's another option if you want more connections. And, so for the itinerary like I said you're going to start in Rin and then most of the things to see our along the coast, so you're basically going to do a clockwise circle, and you can go all the way around following the coast and then get back to ren okay. Excellent we'll let's jump in a little more detail. What are we going to Iran before we head to the coast? Okay so. Is the cultural capital of Brittany to university town, and it's really easy to get around. I will mention that you're gonNA. WanNa rent a car to be able to do this. Because there are a lot of small towns that you're going to want to be able to go in and out of. But when you're in rent itself, you don't need a car. They actually have a great metro and it's the smallest city in France to have metro. And this one is driverless also so it goes both underground and above ground, and it was really clean and safe and efficient, so that was that was something that I didn't really expect, but it was a very pleasant surprise. So, Ren is known for its half timber houses, which is funny, because that really I think we're on the other end of France over and. Also as lorraine or something like that when I see the half timber houses, yes, exactly that part of France and then Germany to places where you usually think of those, but it's very much native to the architecture here and I believe it's done in a slightly different way, but I'm not positive about that, but the half timber houses are usually the first level is stone, and then on top of that they're usually three or four other levels that have these big pieces of wood, and then they're deaf clan of plaster or mud in between them. When they're all different colors, and so when you see them all together for example, plastic undone. It's a big square where you can see this architecture and Ren, and some of these are incredibly old. They're dating from the fifteenth to Seventeenth Century. All the way back in the Middle Ages incredibly old by American standards is an exactly. Yes, thank you. Yes. It's all relative actually in Renton. They're kind of pockets of these and the reason. There aren't more is because like many other places. There was a big fire in seventeen twenty, and so many of them were destroyed, and so part of the town has this much older architecture and part of the town has more modern architecture. And another thing you're want to see. Is the Britain parliament building and like I said Brennan kind of the. Of Brittany, and so this parliament building originally had a little bit more autonomy than it does now now. It's really part of France, but they still do some court cases here it's it's basically a court of Appeals. The architecture that's there is beautiful. Especially, the grown Sean Code they have paintings and tapestries in there. It's all Gold Leaf. I believe the
Trump ends preferential economic treatment for Hong Kong
"Taking office in January two thousand seventeen. US President Donald. Trump has spent many of his non golfing hours inventing new ways to pick fights with China in recent weeks. China has made this part of his job a good deal easier in imposing a repressive news channel Security Laura upon Hong Kong. Beijing has presented trump with an opportunity to strike back at China. Foreign actual reason as opposed to an invented or imaginary. Imaginary one and trump appears to have seized it, and made a stream of consciousness at the White House yesterday trump ordered an end to Hong Kong's special status under US law on joined a four more on this by the formulas diplomat Louis Lukens Lou is now a senior partner with Cigna Global Advisors, but spent the early part of his diplomatic career in China. Lou rawls them back to the briefing the president's announcement first of all what practical consequences is likely to have. Thank you, it's great to be back, so the practical consequences that take a little bit of a while to play out, and you really nailed it. Donald trump has been in some ways looking for a fight with China and China has given him a great excuse to ratchet up tensions. Down, trump spend a little bit conflicted on China right because he is really pursued, wanted this trade deal for the last couple of years at the same time he likes to talk tough on China and what we're seeing is the election comes closer and closer and were less than four months out to election day the United States is a bit of an. An arms race between Joe. Biden and Donald Trump both of them, trying to be seen as tougher than the other on China and I think we will see tensions ratchet up over the next four months as November third becomes closer in China becomes the common enemy that both candidates can agree on them. Both try to outdo each other on being tough on. I mean we'll try to be overly concerned about this. Because they ll affected this kind of response in they they they would have assumed that there would be consequences of some sort to imposing this new security lore on Hong Kong. They they will have thought it through obviously and and anticipated. The reaction would be I wonder a little bit of China hasn't overplayed his hand. I think there is such a court. We're seeing more coordinated international response now to China's aggression whether it's military aggression whether it's you know. Intellectual property, theft and and use. Of Technology. We're and then go human rights issues including Hong. Kong and what's happening with the weaker people in northeast in north western China. I think we're seeing. Countries have reached a tipping point and the Corona Virus in China's initial response to it is also leading countries i. think a little bit bolder and a little bit better coordinated in their measures to counter China and China maybe anticipated that in his plan that, but I think what we're seeing now for the first time, certainly in recent history is a better coordinated and methodical approach to China from Western. Allies working together with more of a common purpose I. Think than we've seen in a while a how coordinated can that response be? Though if the United States as led by President, trump applies his usual attention to detail and attention span to it again. Might this be a calculation that China of made that trump as usually his response to everything will have an puff, but signally failed to blow any houses down. Absolutely I think this guy is very possible and I think they'd be trying to get away with what they can before a Joe Biden presidency, which would start next January and I think we will see with the Joe Biden presidency in foreign policy under Joe, Biden of much more concerted effort to coordinate with allies, and to have an approach facing China and Joe Biden has talked about working with the European Union and Canada and Mexico and other allies to to deal with China's trade practices amongst other things. It is the united. States can't do that now or won't do that now. Because President, trump's policy is so sort of sporadic and incoherent, so China may be may see this as a window of opportunity to strengthen their position while they have a president in the White House who is is somewhat focused on China, but not really in the details, and in unable because of his actions over the last three years to really pull together a global coalition. How potentially dangerous is that? The you spoke earlier of China perhaps overplaying their hand way of Hong, Kong is concerned. Is there a concern that if as he suggested, it seems a reasonable analysis. They are trying to make hay you. All the sun is shining where president trump is concerned that they might overplay their hand further with potentially dangerous consequences. Will absolutely, and that's was you know is scary about this time that we're in right now because China, not justice is not just pushing on human rights in pushing on. In commercial interests around the world, but they're also being quite aggressive militarily. India of the south. China Sea and there's always potential for a misunderstanding. Or an accident we've seen this before you remember when they accidentally shot down an American plane that landed in on Hainan island some years ago. It's very easy for a miscalculation to happen, and when tensions are this high to begin with, it makes the diplomatic walk back from any military accidents much much harder to carry out.

Megxit: Harry and Meghan give up royal titles and taxpayer funds
"Is a deal the the mix it has been resolved and it has been termed a hard. It's a hard hard magazine. It's very embarrassing for the British parliament. And Boris Johnson. This got done literally in a fraction of the time of the brexit which is yet to be resolved is true to borrow a The overworked twitter joke of the week from the press box. which is a great podcast? You should grab to. The Queen's should take over brexit. Negotiations was definitely on twitter a lot yesterday and I don't think that's constitutionally allowed. I'm not a British constitutional expert but it. They did get something done they did so. Let's go over the details of a lot of which which I think it was unfolding and there's some things that are in name in some things are happening specifically we go. State should be sentence by sentence through the Queen's statement. I or just let's let came out. I which notably social media has been kind of leading the way for their official statements and this came out out while the Rota reporters were then putting the details of the agreement out on their own. Twitter feeds just kind of interesting. They didn't use instagram. Or wherever you like your the details yes because the media and the involvement of the media in Harry and Meghan involvement with media is the crux of this matter still is we'll discuss so it's pretty intentional seriously. All right. So here's a statement from Her Majesty the Queen on the Buckingham Palace letterhead which is really lovely letter by away. You have letterhead in your life. I don't have letterhead but I do have a lot of monogram notepads as you probably know my desk. I've been thinking about some letter. I completely completely supportive. What am I going to baby gifts for my close friends as note cards with their new child? That's Nice thank you for the child too right okay for them to send like other. Thank you cards okay. Following many months conversation more recent discussions. I am pleased that together. We found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family. Harry Meghan Archie. Archie will always be much-loved members of my family. I recognize the challenges. They have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for more independent life. I want to thank them for all the dedicated educated work across this country the Commonwealth and Beyond and particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family is my whole family's hope that today's agreement allows him to start building a peaceful peaceful new a happy and peaceful new life. Okay so that's nice. There are literally no details in this. Let's literally non. The word family is in there like five times times at least maybe didn't count which is in keeping with her previous demon? Is clearly what she's trying to emphasize here is that she's using their first names. Zor Family. This is still a family affair. I Love Them. There's no bad blood. No one's feuding family family family family family family. We're all good as small F- family. Yes did you notice that some people people did point out following many months of conversations and more recent discussions which seems like an olive branch of to Harry and Megan of the whole they blindsided us. And I think that it's trying to save. Maybe we were surprised by some of the things but also they have been expressing this for a while like trying to bring resolution to that timeline. Yes definitely they're trying to make it seem like they didn't they were only blindsided by the timing of Harry and Meghan like websites essentially early and not by their desire to set back. Yes so that. Was the Queen Statement From Her Majesty the Queen. Then there was the official Buckingham Palace statement which read the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful grateful to Her Majesty in the Royal Family capital off on their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter their lives as agreed and this new arrangement. They understand they're required to step back from royal duties including official Merit Military Appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for royal duties with the Queen's Blessing. The Sussex is will continue to maintain their private patronage is and associations creations while they can no longer formally present the queen. The Sussex's have made clear that everything they will do everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty and then lastly slay the details the Sussex says will not use their HR h titles as they are no longer working members of the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay sovereign grant expenditure for the refurbishment of frog more cottage which will remain there. UK Family Home Buckingham Palace does not comment. On the details of security arrangements there are well established independent processes determined. Herman the need for publicly funded security. This new model will take effect in the spring of Twenty twenty. Pretty fucking huge deal. They're out they're out and they're paying back reservations. That we wondered about our first question was what happens to Windsor. And they've been reading the comments because it's very smart of them to include that information that they will be giving back taxpayer money because he's really the last thing that anyone could hold against them. Yes and it also it was like real connection to what I think is probably one of the breaking points. This is just my own hypothesis this but over the summer with the private jet situation or people are so mad at them for taking a chat and there was question belly who paid for that all of the kind of luxury life stuff they do and I presume we will continue intended to do and enjoy because it's a luxury life and who doesn't like that they just don't want anyone to like chirp about cutting it off and I think that's one of the reasons why they wanted to have the financial independence but still be royal was to not have anyone be like. Why are you using our money for you to jet off to Corsica to Sardinia to wherever they were gone? Ah Yes I think. The other half of that is that they didn't want anyone to be able to say. Why are you using our taxpayer? Money when you are making like twenty a million dollars from net flicks and or your own version of like Oprah's tour. Yes which we will talk more about. I thought this was interesting from the Guardian and let's talk about the H.. Rage titles share more generally but the couple were unwilling to subject themselves to any financial scrutiny or review in future contracts. They struck the trade off was that they could not use their. HR H styles though they retain them so. This is very clear that they really want to be able to do what they want. And take the projects that they want line and not have anyone not have any oversight from from the press of the taxpayers. But also I think there is an internal committee in Buckingham Palace like a bunch of report ers whose job it is to make sure that anyone with a royal title is not taking on commercial enterprises that would disrespect or reflect poorly on the crowd. I think they've done a terrible job because Prince Andrew is under that scrutiny as all the queen's other children but none of that right and they also I think moreover don't want the media bring it up like obviously 'cause obviously there's loopholes if Andrew is doing andrew you know but I think they just. They're just like part of their word. We're no longer doing the Rhoda. We're no longer subject to your scrutiny. Basically yes and that's a big part of it. Yeah and so I think this was not well communicated in the first few hours which is totally understandable. They're not being stripped of their. HR shadows committing to not using them. This is the biggest point to me because here is my take. Take on this whole deal which may be a hard Mexico. This is one hundred percent. So totally reversible said reversible and and I think that's so intentional on the part of the royal family to`delays listen I I do actually wish Harry and Meghan the I I really do. I think they're really in love to a well. I've been reviewing the timelines and to be honest. They have not totally met a man as timelines four years ago. I know they've been moving quickly. But maybe Harry and Meghan and I have some different goals goals in life but I do wish them well so when I say that I do not think that they will be married in five years. It's not a reflection on them or their character. I think we said this before for the even got married. Yes we did. We gave it seven years. which is we're on track for? Yeah and and basically for this reason which was like how can you put someone who Meghan who has grown up up in America and it is accomplished independent intelligent woman and ask her to participate in this royal family situation. It just doesn't why would she do that. I also I will say people make fun of her a lot for having been on deal or no deal and for many other like seemingly embarrassing jobs but like who doesn't have an embarrassing job from early in career you know and I just think like she actually is a career woman like her chosen. Career is being famous and being an actress but like she has worked her way up in that. And so if you are as ambitious as she seems and that's often used as a day like oh she so ambitious I mean it as the Nice thing like I respect it like. Of course she wants to be able to like make make money and be out there like. That's the past she chose. She went to North Western. Because it has a great drama school. And like you can learn how to be an address and I will also say even before she was with Harry h she was using her success. Ambition for charitable issues and advocacy. And there's that famous video of her eleven or twelve writing who did she write something. Sexist said about Hillary Clinton. I mean she has been working for bigger than herself for much longer than she's been a part of the royal family. Yeah so I I do admire her. But on the flip side now that they're out. Harry has grown up in the UK in just the most privileged privilege sheltered bubble of all time has obviously gone through a lot of difficult family trauma and some of that is still unresolved. He's at odds with a a fair amount of his family right now and then is moving across the world to start a brand new life with very little support system outside of one person who does love him very much. That's that's tough tough tough ass. It's very hard so I hope I hope I'm wrong.
Saint Marcellus's Flood - January 16, 1362
"Welcome back I'm your host eaves and you're tuned into this day in history class a show that takes history and squeezes it into bite size stories. Today is January sixteenth. Twenty twenty you. The day was January sixteenth thirteen sixty to a massive southwesterly early Atlantic gale known as Saint Marcellus flood or the growth among Daca hit the British isles the Netherlands northern Germany and Denmark work it resulted in at least twenty six thousand deaths. The event is also known as the second Saint Marcellus flood since a similar disaster. Astor happened on January sixteenth in twelve nineteen Saint Marcellus is flood took place during. What some Matala Gist? Now call the little ice age. This period wasn't an actual ice age. The term coined by geologist F e Matt refers to a climate interval after the medieval warm period did when mean annual temperatures declined and the weather was unstable though climatologists and historians disagree on the exact span of the period and by many definitions. The so called Little Ice Age lasted from the fourteenth century. To the mid nineteenth century around the twelfth century a series as of large storm surges started occurring in the North Sea. By this time though Europeans were already familiar with storm surges caused by the Gills of extra tropical cyclones. An extra tropical cyclone is one that forms in the middle or high latitudes. These cyclones are driven by temperature. Sir Contrast in the atmosphere where two air masses meet and create a front though tropical cyclones create higher storm surges and get a lot of attention an extra tropical cyclone cover larger geographical areas. These storms led to the loss valuable land enforced communities to relocate. Europeans could not predict when the next flood would happen but they did build coastal defenses to protect against big storms and reclaimed land from the sea using innovative techniques. The low countries including the Netherlands western Germany Denmark Belgium northern France were particularly vulnerable able to storm surges and destruction. The first Saint Marcellus Floyd occurred in twelve nineteen drowned an estimated. Thirty six thousand people mostly mostly in West friesland and Groningen which are now locations in the Netherlands in twelve eighty seven. St Lucia flood killed more than fifty thousand people in the Netherlands in northern Germany.
