"Nice to be here. Mona's talk a little bit about the real estate mom housing prices. Yeah, it's not just the market that's going to record levels. Housing prices are now way above where they were at the last height before the last recession back in 2006. The new case Shiller I thinkI Case, Shiller reported down home prices are up 6.2% year over year and even in Chicago, they're up 4% from last year. That's interesting because I thought that in the city a city like Chicago would be suffering because everybody was trying to get out of the city. Well, it's interesting. What we're seeing is that just a record number of people want to move so they're moving to all kinds of places. It's the renting. They want to move to a condo. If they can't put forward, let's say a single family house. If they're by in a condo. They want to move to the suburbs and get more space. And sometimes, if they're in the suburbs, they're moving way out to rural America. I'm glad you put it that way, though, because I do know people who have bought homes or condos recently in the city of Chicago in the neighborhoods, and it was very, very, very competitive. You know, you had to make an offer right now. It had to be at ask you may have had to pay over. Ask And that sort of flew in the face of this idea that everybody was running away from the city. You just said no people are just moving. Maybe from an apartment renting all along, too, for the first time owning and that could be a city to city move right? That could be and the kinds of things that we're seeing. Dr. These decisions are whether schools air in person or virtual right now in in Illinois, they're basically all virtual. But that's been a driving force. We're seeing people who want more space. They just wanna have some outdoor space of their own that they can sit in and feel the weather even on a day like today, so there's Different things that have been driving this, but there is just a extreme amount of interest in moving right now, and you see it with the values jumping. Reminds me that game we played in school Ray on What's the one where the music plays and everybody walks around the chairs, musical chairs. This reminds me of musical chairs. Everybody was sitting on their houses and their condos and their apartments and then the pandemic hit. And this summer and fall. Everybody got up and started walking around. And then they all pop sit down someplace else. Maybe you and the condo that I just left to go into the suburbs, but you from a rental in the city to my condo in the city, but Everybody sort of changed chairs in the last like a few months. Yeah, It's been very interesting to watch how this is all you know, happening in the beginning. Nobody wanted to live in their condos, and they wanted all moved to the suburbs. But what we've seen is that as people have been rehired, they're leaving their family homes and moving into those rental apartments. The renters are moving up. It's It's really very traditional. It's just all really compressed. And we're seeing at the time of year where everything is a little bit off cycle this year. I think we've seen it in the car industry as well. When automobile manufacturers shut down and now when you would normally see big sales at the end of the year. You're not gonna see them because there's this pent up demand. The same thing happened with real estate with the spring market didn't start to happen until really the summer. And it just seems to continue going strong. What do you write about how our schedules just seemed to be a little off kilter. The fact that the N B A is trying to jump start a new season strikes Mia's recent assumed, like, Wait, didn't we just finished the N B? A. And they're starting again. But Everything just does seem to be a little off cycle. By the way. I talked to the Mayor Rock for a little while ago this morning earlier on my show, at least, and he was talking about how they have a program to give free tuition to students at Northern Illinois University who get a 3.0.

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools
"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect. Garner says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance on August fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and Peter Mullen.
Can the Midwest expect more derechos?
"That durant show that tour across Iowa and Illinois August tenth flattened as much as fourteen million acres of cropland seventy to one hundred plus mile an hour winds blew down trees and power lines more than half a million islands lost power some for more than a week. The word the ratio means straight ahead in. Spanish these massive straight line wind events travel more than two hundred and fifty miles and produce wind gusts over. Seventy five miles an hour. Why is the Upper Midwest climatological hotspot for these massive windstorms that howl for hundreds of Miles Victor Seaney is a professor with Northern Illinois University specializing in severe storms. Hi Victor Welcome to climate cast. Thanks for having me on. Paul what stands out to you about that August tenth Rachel probably the number of wind reports that we had over seventy five miles per hour usually when these jobs occurred you. Can get widespread fifty to sixty mile per hour winds. But as we saw in several cities in Eastern, Iowa in Northern Illinois and even into the Chicago land area, this particular day Joe was producing winds in excess along its path of seventy five miles per hour. Obviously, the wind speed gets higher. So does the damage we all know about Tornado Alley and there's also a higher donate show frequency there but the radio frequency is Also high here in the Upper Midwest and the southern Great Lakes right it is an actually if you had to pick one city on the map that experiences more durations than anywhere else in the United States, it would be sort of Rockford Illinois Northern Illinois here is really ground zero for the shows and it really goes back to the ingredients that you need in order to get these types of long live windstorms we've. Had some historic data shows in the Upper Midwest? The Boundary Waters Blow Down Fourth of July nineteen ninety nine is something people here in Minnesota remember what is it about the summertime atmosphere over the Upper Midwest? That's conducive to durant chose well, for those of us who live up here in the summer we know it's the heat and humidity, and of course, you have heat and humidity present on many days in the summertime. But what really differentiates from a direct show, Dave versus a normal thunderstorm day are these bigger disturbances that moved through the atmosphere and a lot of vertical wind shear strong jetstream overhead that all comes together to create a very favorable atmosphere for these rages. The bulk of evidence seems to suggest that climate change doesn't show strong links to the intensity of d'auray chose why is that? It's not that it doesn't show strong relationships is. That it's sort of unknown in that we have a lot of errors right now with our experiments in the models that we have that can project into the future the potential changes. Our best guess right now is that the amount of days that we're going to have in the future that having this extreme heat and humidity will increase, but it's sort of unclear if that's GONNA translate to more of these types of Drake Joe. Windstorms is there any evidence that Rachel climatology could shift northward as the climate warms there are certainly studies out there that show northward shift in what we call the mid latitude jetstream and these types of phenomenon in theory should shift with that northward shifting jet. Again, these are attribution type of studies that will need to be retested in the future and continue to be tested with new data before I think we can say anything. More robust about what we're going to expect with these types of storms. I don't think there's a rating system for Rachel's how would you rate that one that crossed Iowa into Illinois on August tenth this particular Drake Shift you had to ask me is probably one intend to one in fifteen year event across the Midwest Professor Victor Jen, Seaney with Northern Illinois University. Thanks so much for being on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.
