"Certainly wouldn't make an irrational choice as it relates to major surgery or being vaccinated. Certainly we wouldn't make emotional irrational non justifiable decisions on for example. I don't know where a should be elected president of the united states but in reality. That's what we all do. And i include myself in this because i want you to understand that i'm no different than anybody else. I just i do understand how the brain works how. We make decisions in psychology behind. That is one of the reasons that i've been a successful as i have throughout my life is because i spent an inordinate amount of time way too much time more than any human being should spend studying influence and behavioral science like heuristic practicing easy. Those fancy words right. You'll look later those of you in missouri. I i would spell them for you. But it's it's not worth it and so by the way i can. I see you laughing over there. So i get this. Somebody was really upset with me on twitter. The other day he came on for someone is trying to build an audience. Really isn't you're always being mean to missourians. i dunno. I grew up in missouri. And it's not that bad first of all. It is that bad but beyond that. That's not the point. My constant and deliberate abuse against those of you in the great state of missouri is nothing but just pure love. If you don't know i used to live in. Kansas lived there for many years when i moved to kansas city. Kansas city sits on the border between Kansas and missouri with kansas city. Proper like actual. Kansas city's actually really on the missouri side. The most of it is but most of the growth that happened. I the where the money is. It grew toward south to the kansas side as wildly of din. I'll sort of like middle class. Suburbia upscale. i was there. I was i. We were broke but we lived in this kind of like upscale Middle class city called olathe in south west. Kansas city and one of the things that was always happening was that that the missouri side of kansas always wanted to impose new taxes but they always wanted to get the kansas side people to pay for it. Because that's where all the money was and they couldn't generate enough revenue just by taxing the people on the missouri side. So they're constantly. They wanted to build a new stadium. They're like wow. We're not raise tax revenue and we're to need kansas to pay for it too. Because you guys you guys go to the chiefs stadium just like us. I'm like well. How about you make the chiefs pay for it. How about how about the chiefs pay for their own. Forget stadium and how you charge. Whatever you gotta charge in order to have a sports team is not like you. Keep ratcheting the ticket prices up on kansas city chiefs fan goers and they still show up they still watch it. So how about you not make tax imposed and this private company gets all of the upside of your of your particular building that you built for them and then licensed to them and don't have to pay for How about how about no but this is stuff that they were always doing it so. I always looked at kansas and missouri as kansas being. The we're the we're the enlighten ones. We're the ones with all our teeth. Were the ones who understand. What a toothbrushes and how to use deodorant. We're one sue. Don't regularly put on overalls or where a wicker hat to work missouri on the other hand. Well though that group of backwoods hillbillies who knows who knows what they're doing right now. I can guarantee you there if they're listening to this podcast. It's i really appreciate it. Because i mean i can't imagine. Electricity is on for that many hours in missouri. So.

And then i think the stuffy sends into your shows brilliant always said you're little also a first for me. We chatted for a short while about your show. His show in some of the material as talented as a singer and songwriter's bernez he's even more gracious and a lovely person and so much more than a jingle writer as other material is brilliant as well. I look forward to what he may contribute to your show and seeing him perform live again whenever i can. I cannot encourage audience enough to do the same.

Because i was in evans scholar at the university of wisconsin from tau thousand to two thousand six. The scholarship absolutely changed my life. And i'm forever grateful.

"Nancy pelosi says she won't put it up to a vote until senate democrats pass a separate three and a half trillion dollar bill. That's the one that includes expanding medicare and other democratic priorities. Npr congressional correspondent kelsey. Snell is here and kelsey. We thought this might pass over the weekend. It does today at least in the senate. How significant is this. This is a very big deal. I mean we don't often see this kind of bipartisan support. For big spending like this. We see bipartisan support. For some other types of bills often in the national security realm but when it comes to big fiscal investments in something like this. It's just not often that we see come together like this. And that's part of the reason why there were so many skeptics in both parties that this could ever happen but we did see nineteen republicans. Vote for this bill. Along with all of the democrats in the senate and those nineteen republicans included senate minority leader. Mitch mcconnell generally speaking republicans say that this is important because it was the product of bipartisan. Talks where everybody agreed on the definition of infrastructure. Everybody agreed that in this narrow conversation they would be talking about funding things like roads and bridges and ports and airports and they would stay away from the controversial issues that democrats want to pursue on their own. I think it's really interesting that the lead negotiator for republicans rob portman of ohio. Basically made a speech saying that. Everybody should be proud of the work that they've done and that the senate is doing their job this time and they're doing their job. In helping american people get to work and grow the economy with a quick thought on the politics For president trump tried to stop republicans from stopping signing this bill. It still went through as we said in the senate and we've been hearing people say who doesn't want to be the ribbon-cutting when something does get built but how quickly can states actually spend this money. Well i would have to become law. And there are a lot of hurdles between now and then th this has passed the senate but it has to pass the house as well and house speaker. Nancy pelosi said she will not bring up. The bipartisan bill until the senate finishes work on the broader three point five trillion dollar partisan. Bill that is just now getting underway in the senate and just now getting underway. I mean that they are just literally just starting a process that could take months. So i don't anticipate that this could even be voted into law or i'm sorry signed into law for many months ahead now we'll just before the senate vote today. Senate majority leader. Chuck schumer apparently speaking across the The rooms to speaker pelosi said they would immediately start working to pass the larger measure without republican support. Let's listen once. This bill is complete. The senate will immediately turn to the second track and our two tracks strategy passing a budget resolution. That will unlock historic investments in american jobs. American families in the fight against trump for climate. Change the two tracks strategy is preceding full steam ahead and kelsey just remind people this second much. larger bill does not need republicans on board. Pass it but it sure would have been nice and president. Biden with like bipartisan support. Just in the few seconds we have what he thinks going to happen there. Well now committees. Get to work after the senate finishes the process of voting to begin the process on on The budget process here. Committees will have to get to work and right actual policies so this work is going to be lengthy and it is going to involve a lot of debate between democrats about what really needs to go into this bill. Yeah and do we know what. The centrist democrats The senator kristen cinema of arizona. Joe manchin west. Virginia how they feel about the larger bill. They have said that they are skeptical of the top line number of three point five trillion dollars. But they haven't said exactly what they would support instead came. Npr congressional.

And what I really heard my reporting was people saying this could be a watershed moment where we've already seen first few years some big universities like university of Chicago backing away. Away from the SAT and making it optional in student admissions package, and what thumb advocates are saying is this could be a tipping point in which you see many more schools going pass optional because there's so much skepticism and controversy over these exam. You know, parents were able to pay proctors to personality their children and get a high score all of that. So there's exams are really really under the spotlight now as you point out. The guest these standardized tests like the ACT or the SAT of been fairly accurate predictors of a student's future success. So then what's the school to do? Yes. So so this is really where the rubber meets the road. I spoke to lots of testing experts who said listen, there is no perfect standardized tests, even the the highest quality test with the fairest content. Their predictable, you know with on them year to year, you know, what concepts are on them. You can prepare for that. But they said a lot of research has found that if you pair students SAT or ACT score would their high school grade point average, those two factors combine we'll give you a pretty good sense of how well those students will perform in college. So a high school GPA some studies have shown could be even better predictor. But since every high school in America has a fairly different grading system. And. Some high school they're more rigorous than others. A lot of experts believe having one standardized measure is really important. So you have these experts, you know, who studied these tests giving us that perspective, but you also have a lot of frustrated and used Herron than and kids here. So I think we're sort of seeing the two sides of that debate cola a little bit. We're speaking with Elisa Shapiro education reporter at the New York Times, she certainly piece entitled college cheating scandal show, standardized tests, isn't always affair one. So you referenced high school GPA is of course, there are creeks. Now who say too, many schools are handing out what as and Bs like candy, in some cases. Exactly. Well, here's a whole nother element of this debate. Right. What about grade inflation? If we scrapped or, you know, the SAT and ACT or or which is unlikely, but at least made them optional from where schools, we don't know how much grade inflation can play a role. It's if a kid is giving up a school, a whole slate of a pluses, and I reference in the story. There's a recent study that showed it's actually the most affluent schools that have had the highest incidence of grade inflation, so that's sort of another unknown element that clouds the debate. I mean, I think it goes back to the idea that there there is no perfect ungainly system here, right? That's why the academics. And the experts say the SAT may be and the ACP may be as close as we're gonna get. Oh. You point out a handful of instances to demonstrate the cheating has always been around really in some way, shape or form as a possible. We just look at this is all right. Well, this is another one. Let's let's try to keep it all in perspective for the other annoy you hundreds of thousands of kids who got in the proper way to school. Exactly. I mean, there are millions of kids who take the SAT ACT everything going here. Needless to say, the vast vast majority don't sheet, it's not like they're Matha cheating scandals every few months they're relatively few and far between obviously they're worth paying attention to and people are very interested in them when they happen. But, you know, the the the company that administer the SAT ACT have been very clear that they think the tests are there. They have added security measures after each successive cheating scandal over the last decade, but like any test, right? If you can. Figure out a way to cheat it, and you really want to cheat you will probably be able to. But it's I think it's certainly were pointing out that this is exceedingly rare, although it's very flashy.

Are you in the mood for the I don't know if you have time for this deed, you know, day after Valentine's Day having a enough romance to last me for a year. I can imagine I can imagine. Here's the story. This is out of place in Kansas that I'm not familiar with. I think it's called olathe Kansas. Oh, L A T H E ole. Three Kansas middle school students made sure that every girl and woman at their school received a special Valentine on Thursday. According to NBC three boys eighth grader tristen Valentine. That's his name. That's his name. Seventh-grader Cayenne rice, which I've had but it's too spicy for me. It's way too spicy. And then sixth grader Lincoln fan. Use their own money to own money to purchase flowers for all two hundred seventy girls and seventy female staff members at their middle school. That's a grand total of three hundred and forty. Wow, people. They reportedly spent hundreds of dollars on these purchases. The boys allegedly arrived. I liked that. They still say allegedly. Let's just assume it happened. The boys arrived at school early on Thursday with buckets of carnations. They stood by the school's entrance and passed by flowers to every female in the building. And wish them a happy Valentine's Day, we wanted every girl to feel important and special on Valentine's Day Valentine told KABC we were hard to make sure that it was going to be a surprise to everybody eilly told a few friends and the girls seem surprised and happy according to Cam VC other middle school boys told Valentine rice homes, they wished that they had thought of the idea one boy, even tried to purchase a flower from them materials is a special school home. Told the news outlet. And who knows maybe we started a new tradition here. That's the nicest thing in the world. It's pretty sweet so three kids. Let's see if you're in seventh or sixth grade, you're probably twelve years old that says a lot about kids to go. I I'm gonna make every girl to school feel special guate- my way by him something they spent hundreds of dollars that. Although what about the boys? I know I know that's legit. What is kind of a girls holidays, isn't it? It is isn't it? I don't really celebrate. It's not pay. You don't think it is? No, I think everybody has to participate or it's no fun. Well, but but the guys participation like for me, the thrill that I got out of it with seeing that my wife was happy with what I got. Although she did get me toffee, pretzels, which were also very delicious. I didn't get Jim anything zero isn't that? That's normally. Oh, no. You normally do we just it? I was watching one kid who was in the orchestra pit of a play. So I went and watched a play. Yeah. Jim stayed home with Dylan and ordered heart-shaped Lou malnati's. So that's what they did. But then I realized this morning there were no Valentine's exchange as we'd just treated it. Like any other day feel like you missed out on something or not? No. And again, it's because my birthday was two days earlier. So I feel like, you know. John are celebrating. Right. And we need to delay this. We are going to go out for my birthday slash Valentine's Day, because we just we couldn't get everybody together night. What is a reasonable period by which you can make good on this is it this weekend? Next weekend. The fourth of July time limit again, you're so black and white area. I'm afraid that time will pass and people will forget about these the one two punch of your birthday and Valentine's Day care. I don't want that to happen. You get your do you deserve something. What are you going to get her all I'm not in the equation? It's not for me. It's up to it's up to those closest to you can I out sweet your story. Yeah. What do you got? I got should we take a break and then come back, and I'll share this with you. This is another Valentine's Day story that I saw that. I kind of forgot to mention today, but it's still holds true.
