What to know about COVID-19 variants' potential spread, impact on vaccines
"And I'm No well, King. Good morning. Ah, virus that spreads a lot has many chances to mutate and covert 19 is doing both in this country. Researchers in the U. S now say they have found at least seven new variants here now. Other countries, the U. K South Africa and Brazil. They've all reported variants to with some big questions like Are they more dangerous? Still outstanding. MPR's health correspondent Rob Stein has been following This one. Hi, Rob. Good morning. Well, what have you learned about the U. S variance? So the first of these various was spotted by researchers in Louisiana. But it turns out the same kind of mutation looks like it also emerged completely independently at least seven times in this country. No, That's it awful large because it suggests the virus is doing something called convergent evolution. That's when an organism evolved in a way that gives them some kind of superior power. Here's what Jeremy Camille of Louisiana State University says about what the virus is doing. He spotted the mutation. It's infected millions of humans around the world now and it's probably just, you know, getting Into a more intimate relationship with our species. The question is, What is that more intimate relationship mean? Exactly Does it make it spread more easily from one person to another doesn't make it more contagious. Do do. Researchers know the answers to that? Yeah, well, no one knows yet it looks like it's spreading quickly in the places where it's been spotted, but it's not at all clear. That's because of the mutation. No viruses mutate all the time. Sometimes there are big problems, but a lot of times not so much, and there are other mutants that had been previously spotted in this country. Like you know, one that took over in Southern California Scientists are still trying to figure out whether it's more contagious or, you know, just got lucky. Now this newly identified mutation occurred on a key protein that sticks out from the surface of the virus called the spike Protein. It's how the virus infects cells. That's also the target of drugs and vaccines. So any change could be really important. I talked about this with Andrew Peco Shit. The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. We should keep an eye on it. I myself have already passed this on to the people in my laboratory, and we're looking to see if we can find viruses with this mutation because if we can, we're going to bring it into the laboratory and try to study it to see what's actually happening here. Now, you know to be clear. Pecos means he passed on the details about the new various Those colleagues Yes, so they can determine you know whether they're more contagious or not Now, no one thinks there's any reason to panic. You know, far from it, actually. And we already know that there are those other various circulating in this country that we know we should be worried about. And what about the non US variants, some of which were identified before ours. How are they evolve? It Yes. So you know, more than 1100 cases of the one first flag in the UK have been confirmed. At least 40 states and British scientists just released more data than makes them even more worried than ever that, in addition to spreading faster, it may also make people sicker. You know, and the first one spotted in South Africa has not been detected in at least eight states and the one originally seen in Brazil is in at least two states. But the reality is they're probably already way more common than that. The U. S just isn't sequencing the genetic code of the virus enough to really know how widespread they are. And the spot any new variants fast. I talked about this with saucy of pop sq at George Mason University. We're flying blind right now, when it comes to mutations, and how prevalent they might be on the community already, so we really need to ramp it up. The CDC says. It's trying to wrap it up. But the country still has a ways to go. And what about the vaccines that we currently have? Will they help against the new variants? Yes. So the vaccines maybe someone that's effective against some of these various, but so far they seem to work pretty well. But the most important thing is to keep these viruses from spreading as much as we can to prevent any more dangerous ones from occurring. You know, the virus is still spreading like crazy in this country, which makes the U. S essentially a giant Petri dish that could easily produce even
LEVEL UP: This Life Coach Says Now's the Time to Level Up
"Thought work an action and breaking through limiting beliefs. When in your own life have you leveled up the biggest level up from he was having twins that will the big level. That's what taught me. Oh i can do anything if i can do this. I had my first daughter. My husband had been married for five years and then we tried to have a second child. And i was over thirty five. And we ended up using some fertility treatments. We didn't earn nation. Which is just an and i ended up pregnant with twins and it was shocking. Even though when you're doing facility treatments that's a possibility but it was still shocking because surviving with them right bringing them home and and at this point i also had a business which felt like another baby. I was already running my coaching practice. And i have like seven clients. I was working with. And i was doing contract work. Having to put all that on hold for a while just to kind of survive and keep them thriving and get get a lot of help and shift my mindset. I really had to expand into this next level of growth in order to see my life in any way because now we went from a family of three to a family by one of the things. That really helped me. I completely changed my relationship with time. All of a sudden the value of something like fifteen minutes was so high for me. It was worth so much to get fifteen minutes to take a shower. Was like so valuable for me so that was one of the first things that changes. I started to look at time from this new perspective of. Oh how every minute of my life is so valuable because either. I'm taking care of a kid or i've got to be producing results in my business or in work so that was one experience of leveling up. Another one is really taking my business to the next level. I said okay. I'm gonna make six figures. I'm gonna make six figures and more and it was just a decision i made in my mind of. I'm done playing small in this world of coaching. I know i can do better. And now i have a family three you know and we had bought a new house so this was the time to kind of say. I need to play a bigger game. The universe is calling me up for big game. And that's how sometimes it feels. It doesn't always come just from you. It comes from like the universe telling you like a little whispered then keeps coming up over and over again. You're met for something more meant to play a bigger game. You're meant to do more and win. That voice was in my ear. I was like you know what i am meant to do. More and i'm going to grow this business. And i'm going to take it to the next level and so i left some of my contract work. So i consciously made a decision to shift and consciously made a decision to focus my attention and really grow into. You know the six figure coach than i am. Now you all know. I did not grow up speaking spanish. My husband did and it's really important to us that our girls have exposure to the language when i interviewed susie had a meal. The creator of gundy.

And on this day in 18 68. The very first traffic light was installed way all see them multiple times per day. Stop. Lights are commonplace in everyday life, but it wasn't always like that. Back in the 18 sixties, the first traffic light was installed in London. And it was a manually operated gas lit signal. Can you imagine a human being having to stand there and light a lamp every time the light needed to change as it turns out, less than a month after the installation, the first stop light exploded and injured the policeman who was operating it, But we learned from that and came up with better traffic systems in 1910, a Chicago man patented the first automated traffic controller. Which flash the word stop or proceed, which is so classy, important safety tip green means go red means stop and in Arizona, apparently yellow means I need to speed up to make this light hate when people do that first traffic light was invented on this day in 18 68.

"Card to Joe's Diner. Alright, Pecos Bill. Hey, Bill, what's going on Pecos? Hang with and I got a couple of things to ask you about one is I talked to a mutual friend yesterday. Asked how you were doing, and he said he thought you were doing pretty well because you have voted. Early and often on Tuesday, so I wanna thank you for the, uh, sure Doing my part. You ask about Trump voters calling in And explain why I have a check. I have a challenge. I would like to hear a Christian who voted for Trump calling And explain. How they are not contrary to their saviors, teachings. I think a Christian that voted for Trump is morally bereft. So I guess I'm stirring a pot. Richard. I apologize, but I don't know why people load for Trump. I don't eat every five reasons. All right, we have Charlie on the line. Charlie wants to give us five reasons. Pay coast. You ready? Gonna write these down? Number really? This is a kid's abortion. Some people vote for another reason. They don't care anything else about him. Other than that, he's against abortion under two. It's good. He's good for their floor. One case So, John money over lives. I got Charlie number number three. He's a racist. We have a lot of people in this country that a racist Before he's for sure going. No, no, no, We don't We, Charlie, we need all five. Number five. Number five. He's a bulling. And a lot of people in this country who are bullies. I'll give you another one. He abuses women, and there are a lot of men usually so there you go. Richard six, raising six reasons. People vote for Donald Trump. Ah, you well, Pecos Your challenge was not just people who vote for Donald Trump to call in and say, why give us some good reasons Why you vote for me? You know, maybe it is abortion. Maybe it's the right right to life. Maybe it's you know, Second Amendment something you know kind of these, but that's that's that's hypocritical. I know only one is a reason that I didn't say good reason or sound reason. Reason. Okay, actually back up. But you you want to go a little bit further, and you want to know why a Christian Would Donald Trump would vote for Donald Trump? Absolutely. Yeah, I want them to explain their moral breath, Miss To me. It's a relative. You know, it really is. Thanks. Pay cause peach in now it is really moral relativism and You see that all the time? You see that? You see that from the leadership of the New Mexico Republican Party? Like, you know, Donald Trump's As Bill says, B ref, the morals and yet, they you know they wanted to pick on Roger Montoya because of things he did 40 years ago, which he's explained, apologised force that it was not a good choice 40 years ago. But somehow, you know, they'll give Donald Trump a past. For all of the more reason Transgression, Sins. Whatever you wanna call him. It is relative. I mean, it really is. Whatever works out best for you Let you sleep at night, you know, get you further along promotes your political or economic or a religious or whatever point of view. All right. So Roger Montoya two o'clock today, and we'll talk about jobs jobs you want to get gainfully employed. That's my goal is to get everybody working and wants to work. And so we have another opportunity today to 45. Allied Universal. They're hiring about 50 security guards with some good Bennies. So we'll talk about that with Brenda steadily at 2 45.

It is the third about childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences. Otherwise known as Ace is The first was an age eight. The second was 100% community and the latest, which I just got in the mail today is attack of the three headed Hydra, So we'll talk to the two about that topic at three o'clock today.

You want to call in talk about things that a first hour left wide open. You can call in a comment on the election or cove it or anything else. 505424. 12 60. Biden will win. There.
LazyLedger: Layer One Data Availabilty and Consensus Solution
"And said a Great Intro Too Lazy Ledger. Before we go into kind of. Details, from Lazy, Ledger. Curious like. What are you guys want the impact of Lazy that you to be? As I mentioned right they leisure is basically I think Leger. As a very basic layer one. I, would call it the minimum viable Laon. So if you strip back canal one to his Co. components and may the scalable as possible using existing technology? Leases that your? So. Effectively, license in simple times is basically a blockchain where people can dump arbitrary data onto it. And that data gets ordered. And the consensus don't care or process what data is. And so you says basically a blockchain for dumping data on anew and the data gets ordered. And you can use these primitive to build an all kinds of applications and blockchain's. Now. What this is really useful for what has impact for I guess to explain the overall kind of vision. is as follows. So when Bitcoin came about. The kind of vision for Bitcoin was. August technical architecture for Bitcoin was that. It was using a blockchain. For one purpose of of what application and the application is cryptocurrency payments will store value depending on who you talk to you. So it's basically a single packers blockchain. Then Came about. The idea of was Let's actually create General Pecos blockchain. where he can for every application. That kind of general purpose virtual machine where people can upset spot contracts. So those architectural visions various talk. To each other. The same time there was tenement antenna tenement was more similar to bitcoin vision. When I get tenement is that allows you to create your blockchain for your application. So until the moment, basically he wanted to a application on blockchain. This early really to waste that. The best way to do that is use a shed, his execution environment or shed computer like cerium. You code up your spot contract applets Small contracts runs on this team. guess machine the same chain as everyone else to spot contract. And thus basically the willed compute model and I, see him kind of create. The the problem with that is that. The city of Belgium sheet is very limited. In. Terms of what you can deploy on. and has very high gusts Bills Applications that the the investment machine does not native these sports success, for example, complicated catastrophe or. Perfect proofs that have native guilty and functional team, Edm. So if you WANNA, do that for the build more complicated applications. that. Support you have to basically build your own blockchain using something like tenement. But the problem with Tenement is the problem. GUESS THE DRAWBACK OF TEN DEMANDS, east? that. or any kind of he's in order to create your own blockchain does a huge overhead for creating your book convoked increasing bushing. Because you also wouldn't you create your book chain. You also have to create your own they for that book share, you have to quit your consensus later. And that consensus layer nowadays yeezy based on of stake, which is what tended provides for you. And to do takes a lot of work. You have to, for example, credit to. Make distributed decentralized may have to make sure there's evaluators until unsafe oils. So what in lesion is that as your provides A modular plug -able Laya one. That does nothing. But consensus on data visibility. Layer one that least Fischler one does not do smart contracts execution. Later they want basically those core things that they went dos and nothing else. And that makes it very useful as applicable a one. For people that want to create the earn chains, but don't want to go to the overhead of having to create a consensus network. Instead they can simply plug lays ledger in.

U.S. Approves Abbott Labs Coronavirus Test For Hospital Use
"Daybreak testing for the coronavirus is going to be key in determining whether we've turned the corner on the pandemic and to that end the US government is nearly doubling the amount it pays hospitals to run the large scale test for covert nineteen that's been developed by Abbott labs for more on the testing that is now under way and needs to be done we're joined by Dr Eddie Pecos professor of molecular microbiology and immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health good to have you back with us doctor Pecos now there are different types of tests out there of course can you sort of walk us through them and the differences between them yes so many of the tests are going to look for the presence of antibody he's not particularly in your blood and that will be telling us how many people were actually infected in this outbreak because it's one of the things we really don't know how many mild cases there were having a symptomatic cases there were sold out in the first thing the test tell us what people really want the test though to tell us is whether or not they're going to be protected from reinfection and that's something that we're all still working on because the tests that people are going to be taking that telematic that you've been exposed to the virus don't necessarily tell you that you're protected from reinfection so the next couple of weeks is going to be really intense work in research laboratories to try to figure out how these tests that everybody you're taking are going to be related to to to how protected people are from reinfection well it sounds like you're saying that we're in where you still need to take that first step of finding out just how many people have been infected where are we in that process right now so there are a lot of tests that are being rolled out by different manufacturers there are also a number of tests that are being developed at different medical institutions to move this forward so right now a lot of these tests are being validated with patient samples just to make sure that they're not only performing well but that the people who are performing the tasks are doing them in an accurate way and relatively soon be rolling that out to to to be testing as many people as possible now four still in the rollout phase it is is it safe to start talking at this point as the government already is talking about re opening the economy in some way well you know talking about future plans planning what to do is fine I think it's really really difficult right now to put a timeline on to anything because you know our public health interventions are working but we're still in the middle of dealing with the large certificates is so planning is great timelines for implementing those plans are what really is up in the air right now so what are you looking for or is it in terms of scalability of the tests that will determine whether people have been infected right now it's it's all it's all about the manufacturing capabilities so making sure that the manufacturers particularly of the really good tests are able to produce large amounts of those tests that can be distributed same issue that we ran into at the beginning of the outbreak with a test for the virus it's not just about the ability to implement the tasks about getting those tests into the laboratories of people who can do them effectively terms of developing the test to determine whether people are at risk of reinfection where are we in that process so I think we're we're we're right in the middle of everything right now you know with the outbreak only being you know a few months old here in the US for only now starting to see those people who have completely recovered and can be monitored for reinfection so that's an important thing that that research laboratories are dealing in clinical laboratories are doing and we should know again some of those answers start rolling out in the next couple of weeks based on studies here in the US and we also look to Southeast Asia where the epidemic started earlier and they're already well into that phase of starting the people who have been infected and whether or not they're susceptible to reinfection is there more that can be done on the government side to facilitate further development of these crucial tests I I think resources and distribution are really the critical things you want to make sure that these tests are being distributed equally across the country and in particular again different parts of the country going to be a different phases of the outbreak so you want these antibody tests to be put in places that are in that recovery phase so you can start analyzing the people that have survived the infection and recovered well you don't want necessarily them to be in every place at the same time so again it's it's a planning if that distribution of resources where I think the federal government can really step in and help facilitate things as we look to ward those resources being ramped up president trump is now saying that he wants to temporarily halt funding to the World Health Organization over its response to the pandemic in about the thirty or forty five seconds we have left here how seriously should the medical community take that threat what would the impact be well you know the WHL plays a very critical role particularly in in in in other countries and resource deprived countries so you know I don't know if it's really justified to be able to in the middle of a pandemic criticize and all funding to an agency that is important terms of rolling out resources to to resource starved

"Hour in Pecos Texas hi James welcome to the Dave Ramsey show Hey how's it going good how are you I'm doing pretty good I just started listening to you here recently by chance because well it's the only radio station I get out here yes my brother so every day I'm up I'll get you on the radio I guess my question is is I make about a hundred forty thousand a year I currently have ninety one thousand dollars repeat that but I really really really need to replace my house you know where do I start to to to pay and all to be able to achieve the goal of of of getting the house edges is developing of that that is my land which is a part of my inheritance I don't have to pay that back indicating time what's the other forty N. or V. and two trucks and what's what's your what's your U. R. V. I use for work so I have to have it how do you use an R. V. for work I'd I live wherever I work my company pays me to use my own my own house and I just moved to wherever I work transaction okay and so you're married then yes Sir okay and what's the emergency on your house my current house is just I mean it's falling apart it's a three bedroom I've got four kids it's too old I'm constantly having to fix broken pipes walls and door jams as justice that needs to go to the White House all I would need a double wide okay well let's start with this are you you're not wise to invest in mobile homes because they go down in value none of them go up in valuation no you don't need a double wide is this land is on the land that you inherited the family land yes okay so what we need to do is start working toward you building a home that's what we needed to make a hundred forty thousand dollars a year let's build a house okay and yeah just get rid of the junk you single what all right because a double wide you pay seventy for it and in five years is worth nothing right right now we don't it's going a long way to go up not down show in my house go up in value well of course you're probably not the market selling the stuff anyway over the been on family land but either way the land is in your name right I'm sorry that's a little thing in the family forever yeah so the land is in your name though right yes okay this this particular portion of the land on it good all right well here's the thing the first thing is that you jump on every dollar and download the app your wife does the same thing I'm going to put you into what we call financial peace university I'm gonna pay for it hi and you both can watch the videos even if you're separated from her about work because the whole things online and or where is the home where the family property where she lives for more than a mile away yeah okay was she also can attend the classes I don't know if the B. one near you the way you're describing where you are but there's about twelve or thirteen thousand other classes operating in churches out there so she can attend the classes too but you both can follow along and both be doing the lessons at the same time because it's totally on line item to give that to you and so is the every dollar now that means the two of you are both working your budgets together even though you're separated by several hundred miles okay a lot of military families do this when someone is deployed in other words a were used to doing this with couples that are living like you guys are not once we're doing all of that we've got every dollar behaving in a certain way then the only question is what is the best ordered to do things what's first what's second to hit your goals okay a hundred and forty thousand dollars a year ninety thousand dollars but fifty of it is the land okay correct and so what I would do is look at selling the forty one how how much you own your crock my truck that I use for work it is twenty five thousand she and then my wife trucos six thousand okay C. a twenty five dollar truck that you got out in the workplace destroying it Jeez man okay that probably needs to be downgraded about a six thousand dollar truck to and then you live in an RV so we're gonna list all your debts not counting the farm forty thousand dollars when you look at a hundred and forty versus forty I'm saying you're paying all this off not counting the farm in not in probably a year but you can be on beans and rice rice and beans N. dot shows the family back home and we're we have this goal of getting all these trucks RV's paid off because if you have no payments except the land you'd be in shape to go get a construction loan that would pay off the land and build you a house okay that's that's about a year and a half two years away with what I'm talking about and the family just lives away they've been living in the mean time or worse and we get out of debt you do whatever it takes to clear all these doubts because that's set you up because men think about if you have no payment you to money right well I just started this new job prior to that we were okay usually paycheck to paycheck this new opportunity here good I'm open as an opportunity to get the stuff paid off there you go and and that's not gonna happen accidentally it's gonna be with a detailed plan of attack what do you do I work out moving around the West Texas oil fields what do you do I do flow back okay and that and that's very detailed with an exact game plan to create an exact reaction an exact result that you want you don't do this if you don't you don't pull off your job accidentally right right cause and effect and that's what this thing I'm talking about if you're gonna crack down to nothing the only expenses and you're gonna keep making you cranked up your income and that what that's what sparked a conversation or a clean up his dad gum mass and then you know get a planned around to build a house and get a builder lined up and start talking about Bill nice home on this in that pays off the fifty thousand inside that construction loan as well so then all you end up with at the end of story is a mortgage and on a fifteen year fixed rate and you're going to walk away right through that so hold on R. Kelly's gonna get you signed up for financial peace university again it includes every dollar plus which connects to your bank it includes the all the lessons and all the stuff that you and your wife are gonna do to gather this is the class on money they should have made you take back in high school but nobody did back then now we've got a bunch of the high schools but there you got to hold on to it will take care of you thanks for being an Englishman.
Spurge is the Word
"Name's Nathan Taylor and I I've been studying you for is for about the about seven years now. Hey Sand Yeah and I particularly focus on a little group called the section Nisa film which is sort of the San Matt like Lance so like spotted spurs prostrate splurge those weedy plants that you get your Your Line Darden. That have that White Milky Sap yet. It's cool that the you know. Those are something I grew up recognizing I mean. I didn't know what they were as a child. But it's it's a familiar group of plants to me you know. I think a lot of people that don't live in arid regions at least. That's probably their main introduction to the Spurs family. But I'm curious. What brought you to this in the first place. We always plant person. And how did you discover you four? Ac's kind of your your focus. Yeah so the main way that I found plants is I live in Dallas. I at the time and I was told by my family that we were moving out to the desert. And where you know. There wasn't really any lush vegetation at all and in the spring. I just saw all kinds of wildflowers and being the kind of person that I am. Naturally I wanted to identify every single one that I saw hand. It just kind of snowballed there now. How I got interested in You. Four via is. I had a mentor of time. Whose name is Bert Williams. And he he knew basically all of the local on the southern highpoints Texas and you four was really just the one group that he sort of just assigned the genus name to and didn't even try with a species. So I I sort of took. That is a challenge and from there when I went to Soros to get my Bachelor's and master's I decided that the best way to study these things would be just a photograph every species in the specimen cabinet. And then go back and look at those at home. Well it turns out that some of the species. That photograph were actually misidentification. Ooh that that added a at an added another Another way to sort of you know. Just push me right into into the groove things. That's a really interesting dive into this world. And from a standpoint of sort of species identification and taxonomy I mean some of the Spurs family's pretty easy to recognize although there's probably plenty of minute details but others can be pretty cryptic which I'm guessing lens to some of the taxonomic end species. Id Confusion You just mentioned definitely. Yeah I mean every every time I go to a herbarium I ended up with a a really good big Saka misidentified before so. This is a big family. And it's one of those that every time I think I have my finger on the pulse of what's going on. I see a few representatives that completely blow my mind in. Send me for a loop but how do you begin to even focus in a family as large as before be acn? I guess from there. We can kind of talk about the subdivisions within that group. Right so I mean the the big thing with you for AC. I mean I'm not. I'm not a huge expert on four. Ac as a whole but but it's really sort of divided by the power structure. You know some some species have pedal some don't Actually probably most of them are money. Isis and then with you for specifically you have the ATM and the site in is is sort of this. Modified infrared essence. That looks like a flower. It's sort of like the composite family in that. It has this the Sudan via this false flower that made up of of an invalid occur and then Various flowers in the middle of it. It is pretty wild to think about that in the context of it being in fluorescence in. It's one of those things that when you say or see anyone on the Internet say you forget. Flowers already. Goes actually. It's a safe but it is a really fascinating structure in it. I'm guessing is kind of what makes you for AC unique or one of the characters that Kinda unites a lot of them Under this taxonomic umbrella definitely and it. It is the essentially. The uniting structure of Euphoria message genus very cool. So how did you end up falling? Into the subgroup Are With the chemist icy type growth form that we've mentioned earlier something that I think a lot of people especially if you live in urban areas or have a sidewalk near your house can probably recognize so it fits into a couple of categories for me that I sort of came to appreciate early on and For whatever reason I really like we species and I really like plants that are small and so this is spit imperfectly for me. And in the fact that the Trans Pecos region of Texas. Which isn't that far away for. Me Is sort of the center of diversity for the group. That's sort of where the plants evolved initially he? The region has sort of a representative of all of the major lineages within this within the section. Oh that's really cool. And so they've just sort of radiated outwards from there and made their way up into the super tempered areas. I'm guessing now because of human activity can be found over a much wider range than the initially would have in a natural setting right right. I mean that that said the you know the the group is actually to diversified on its own worldwide. Yeah so I mean except for the Arctic climates course but yeah it especially in desert. The plants love desserts and really sort of exploded in biodiversity In desert regions around the world. That's excellent and in thinking about the success of a group like this that can conquer so many different types of habitats. I you just said the desserts I see them in temperate zones see them in wet habitats. See them in prairies. A lot of that comes down to the fact that they figured out how to utilize a lot of different types of photosynthetic systems. Right yes yes and actually it is the only see for Winnie edge in phobia and within the section. You actually have both see photosynthesis and an intermediate to photosynthesis which not many people know about. I didn't know that that the but yeah. So it's it's a cool sort of intermediary step that uses a a two carbon molecules sort of funnel the the Co two to the bundle sheath cells instead of a a c four molecule like malic acid and came ascites also has a single C. three plant. Euphoria and Gus Sir. So C four photosynthesis really did serve. Diversify I with this section in this film group he I may have mentioned And basically that sort of the old genus name for it so still switching taxing on gears a little bit if I if I say that that's okay. It's hard to keep up sometimes especially with such complexity in morphology in types in you know this is a group. People generally pay attention to so. Of course there's going to be a lot of changes and updates. But I'm GONNA on the subject of photosynthetic Percy it may be the only genus known that also had as pam it has all those for photosynthetic systems so like the the second species in Africa. He those are actually cam plants so like like tactile out West so you have a wad of diversity in this group as far as photosynthetic systems. It's pretty wild because you know they're plants. Photosynthesis is kind of the main stay of that entire lineage of organisms for the most part and to think about all of the variety in that system you could possibly have. I mean just the thought that there could be an intermediate step between this the C. Two thing that I had never even heard of before until now and I'm wondering if you know is there any indication of what the sort of the end type was for this group or for you phobia in general or is it kind of independent evolutionary trajectories depending on where these originated in how they diversified into what kinds of habitats right right so the the origin of euphoria in general? Masada occur in sort of the South Pacific islands around New Caledonia And it sort of a one of a most ancestoral fees. It's actually not a euphoria. It's I can't remember Gina's name off the top of my head but it has a site apium but it's not quite as well structured as a regular you forget ended sort of a sort of a shrub plants in in that area now the the origin of section in this film. I know a lot more about their a lot of really cool features that sort of unite this group but one of the main things is that I mean it it. It evolved from plants. That looked more. Like let's say the gophers purge so like four elaborate before the rigid That sort of SEO like structure the seventeen setiawah basically it. It has this of main stem with with alternate leaves But the emperor essence is sort of KSM with the world of leaves at the base and then it has Casal Branson's That sort of come off that importance and all on that occasion it has opposite leaves he in section and this film they only have opposite leaves. They don't have any alternate leaves at all and that sort of led to the speculation that basically announce analogous to a an import about SC group
"pecos" Discussed on KXNT NewsRadio 840 AM
"At thirty five fifty east sunset road just east of Pecos welcome here sure got a lot to get to this hour a little bit later on in the owl drum and Brent Bozell of the media research center to talk about media bias in the coverage of the impeachment spoiler alert there's a lot we'll also be getting to the New York times utterly rewriting history which is one of my by the blues I hate I hate the fact that the left has decided to rewrite American history in order to promulgate the agenda that America is a horrible awful no good very bad place that's all that in just a little on the first your impeachment updates help Democrats their time is running down today is day two of the democratic talking about the impeachment then they get one more day and then we're done so tomorrow this time tomorrow we should be pretty much close to wrapped with regard to the democratic impeachment managers pushing their gender then you get the Republicans you get to respond and from guess respond for three hours I think Democrats and Republicans because this is entirely partisan there's not one person who's crossed party lines to vote either for or against the impeachment I guess a couple of Democrats voted with Republicans against in the impeachment efforts in the house of representatives represented Adam Schefter open today by observing how rare it was for house lawmakers to have the opportunity to speak on the Senate floor and then Chief Justice Roberts reminded at the house impeachment managers how long they had to make their case the plan for the Democrats today was that the seven house of managers plan to spend the day going through the first article of impeachment piece of power and then they would move on to obstruction in the second in the in the final day the first day was about legal process in about general argument today it's been Adam Schiff mis characterizing all the evidence and pretending that this whole thing is about trump's abuse of power with argue craze really had to stretch the truth nor do that here's an example to Adam Schiff today one after Mick Mulvaney the office of management and budget had entries and staff make moving your members at a press conference in which he suggested quid pro quos in foreign policy happen all the time the question is whether those quid pro quo is our okay or not in other words when Joe Biden threatens Ukraine is that okay or not that's the question now whether he threatened them I went down front threatens Ukraine and their eight is that okay or not that's the real question well Adam Schiff decides he's going to completely rewrite that press conference and just completely taken out of context and rewrite it and we're supposed to trust him on all this because after all he is a hero of the Republic Adam Schefter completely mis characterizing that well they need to make is that case well they they didn't just admit that the present with held the crucial eight appropriated by Congress to apply pressure on Ukraine to do the president's political dirty work he also said that we should just get over it should the Congress just get over it sure the American people just come to expect that our presidents we'll corruptly abuse their office to seek the help of a foreign power to cheat in our elections should we just get over it is that what we've come to I hope and pray that the answer is no okay even say we should get over cheating in elections I mean and now I'm sure it's just making things up but that of course is is what Adam Schiff does and he loves making things out because when you don't have the actual complete case you have to stretch the case a little bit to get where you want it up and you've also sort of let the cat out of the back here's the truth what this is all about always been about is twenty twenty it is always been about trying to go after trump before twenty twenty and Democrats are claiming they have to do it before twenty twenty because if Donald Trump were to be not impeached instead if you were to remain in office then he will cheat in the election now this is a hell of a dangerous argument and media have just been pretending that it's fine for Democrats to say this sort of stuff but imagine if Republicans had said about Barack Obama in two thousand ten there is not impeach you might cheat to win in twenty twelve the media would go nuts they're not accepting the results of the German elections they're suggesting he might cheat to win this is insane and yet the media are cheering on an emergency here chef explained we can't let from separate for an election we can't let the people sound off on this thing we can't have a vote that vote will never be skewed meaning that no matter the outcome of the next election it's a lie unless Democrats win the presence misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly one that is an amazing suggestion we can't be assured the election is legitimate unless trump isn't on the ballot John Brasso senator from Wyoming Republican analyze this he says yeah this is pretty obvious what they want here trump one trump off about this the only thing they want they're actually going to be voting to remove from the ballot the name of Donald Trump not just remove him from office but removing from the ballot in twenty twenty so that I believe they have a conflict of interest in their decision well yes they do Adam Schiff then went on to clear that not only should this not be left to the American people the American people should be able to sound off on any of this also the judiciary should not be able to get involved that's the reason he says that they didn't bother seeking witnesses are documents and house which he helped run right he's the head of the house intelligence committee eight eight miss number of ever I've heard one Adam Schiff explains we can't leave this to the courts if we leave it to the court's truck might be on the ballot you can't leave it to the people we can't leave it to the courts so the only people who can be trusted with the fate of America are the people in this chamber and if they don't stop it well then all hell will break loose the end of the Republic is upon us here's an intra given the seriousness of the conduct at issue and it's persistence this matter cannot and must not be decided by the courts which apart from the presence of the Chief Justice here today are given no role in impeachments in either the house or the Senate being drawn into litigation taking many months or years to complete would provide the president with an opportunity to continue his misconduct he would remain secure in the knowledge that he may tie up the Congress in the courts indefinitely so we can hear from the people and we can have the courts weigh in on this stuff particularly obstruction of Congress because that would take too long so here's the problem now according chef the two charges directly oppose one another right because he's saying abuse of power means we have from heat from now but also we're not going to go through the process because it means we have him he's right now which means it's not obstruction of Congress you just don't want to go through the process so in order to push your music power charge you have to actually demonstrate the are not willing to go through the process that would necessitate obstruction of Congress charge so the two charges actually oppose one another it's pretty incredible meanwhile I love that Adam Schiff is like we need new witnesses man more witnesses more documents also know we should certainly not here from hunter Biden there's no way we should hear from hunter Biden under any circumstances this.

"Pecos well this is the venture heroes are not coming up for you this hour a little bit later on in the hour we'll be joined by Alan Dershowitz in her Los you'll stop by to discuss impeachment we'll be getting to everything impeachment related today we'll be starting off with the great solemnity strong wow I mean are you feeling so I'm feeling Salam super duper solemn like super duper pooper scooper Salam that house brought the charges over to the Senate and they had a procession is really cool that like a procession they walked very somberly is like the coronation of a British monarch and all I could think of myself as man our government dumb like seriously like just an email that the I hate all the pomp and circumstance American government I'm fully consistent on this I hate the state of the union address I hate the inauguration like I hate all of this crap the the the pomp and circumstance that attends American government is utterly bizarre to me because the American government is basically like a plumber you need them to do the things you need them to do I don't have like the grand ceremony will my plumber arrives represent to him the plunger this is not a thing but apparently you have to have these grand moments because after all these are kings lords and masters they had this wonderful moment where people were just gaping gaping all won a stunning seed incredibly stunning stunning in stunning incredible L.

"pecos" Discussed on KXNT NewsRadio 840 AM
"Pecos yeah it's a rave shocker we'll get to that but we begin today with the media very very upset members of the media at the New York times particularly super upset that people are beginning to hold them to their own garbage standard a lot of folks in the media seem to believe that their industry is in serious trouble and I think that the reason that the industry is in serious trouble is because journalism has lost its credibility with the American people I mean all too often an activist newspaper people blame that on president trump in the media they blame that on president from all the journalists albums trump shouting fake news at the top that's the problem guys why was didn't trust you before we don't trust you now specifically now the mask is off with regard to president trump I mean it is very obvious that the New York times in major newspapers across the country have been engaging in political activism not journalism for all these years and they've really thinly veiled it now that's not mean that all of these institutions are losing money and that there were some institutional shifts that happened in the mainstream media over the last ten years that meant that a lot of the newspapers around the country sought significant losses that includes places like the LA times particularly regional papers saw significant losses because the only people who are subscribing more people who expected a physical copy of their newspaper on their doorstep the next morning well if it turns out the nobody wants that physical copy of the pulp newspaper on their doorstep the next morning and then get all their needs for free online and what exactly would you subscribe to the Los Angeles Times Los Angeles Times been bleeding for years but then there are times has found a way to make that up that's because their national newspaper with a wire service and because they have extraordinary brand credibility despite the fact that the trust levels in the media generally are down and so they have a lot of subscribers the Wall Street journal was the first to jump into the space they have a lot of subscribers so another words big national newspapers are doing fine local regional papers those are the ones that are getting hit the hardest now the reason that all of this becomes important is because the media it seems to be at which end about what to do about the fact that they're sort of bleeding out in terms of both credibility nationally and in terms of money regionally and that is the twin narrative for today because on the one hand you got the national newspapers were complaining that they are now being targeted as political activists and you got the regional newspapers complaining that they're being put out of business because there just isn't the money to run them they had the journalistic industry is in a severe crisis it's a crisis that really could only be cured by a systemic shift and how the news is funded on the one hand and by changing orientation on the other moving away from activism journalism and toward objective journalism if you hope to maintain brand credibility in places like The New York Times now the reason this comes up is because we saw the the most bizarre strange response by The New York Times to a story that I've seen in a very long time here's what happened is a fellow named Arthur Schwartz Arthur Schwartz is good friends with Donald Trump junior is close with the trump administration and he and some of his minions online some of his friends online started to go through all of the old tweets a very as journalists at institutions like the New York times at institutions like CNN dig those up archive them and and use them for the possibility of deploying against these institutions and the New York times is really hot and bothered about this there's an article by Kenneth vocal and Jeremy Peters called trump allies target journalists over coverage deemed hostile to White House and your time is very upset about this resurfacing old tweets from journalists that's verboten you can't do that so in this article can Vogel and German leaders right a loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to president trump by publicizing damaging information about journalist who terrible stuff except for the fact of course but then your times has been doing this for literally years The New York Times been going after the past anyone they deem to be politically politically incorrect they've been doing this for decades I'm old enough to remember when they did this to Joe the plumber is viewed by Leri rotor back from October of two thousand eight in the middle of the aisle that alleged member Joe the plumber is this guy who just lived in Toledo Ohio and Brock about was walking around his neighborhood many stopped Obama during a visit to complain about taxes and suddenly he was this big story when your time's then went and dug up everything they could on this guy and basically ruined his life it's great.
"pecos" Discussed on KXNT NewsRadio 840 AM
"Pecos Hey welcome this is the Ben Shapiro show in just a few moments we'll get to the latest with regard to impeachment but we begin today by previewing tonight's big debate it is the last debate before the guy called guy and right now Joe Biden is the man who was apparently in the lead in Iowa according to a Monmouth university poll released on Monday going to Bloomberg bite is on top and I was more voters say they have firmly decided on their choice Biden is currently ahead with twenty four percent support up five points from the same poll in November Bernie Sanders in second place with eighteen percent virtually tied with people to judge seventeen and with Elizabeth Warren at fifteen Biden has been at the top of most I will pulls the Sanders has had lead into one register CNN media com poll released on Friday with twenty percent by was for than that hold fifteen percent support the Monmouth poll is notable because forty three percent of respondents said they are firmly decided on their top choice that is up from twenty eight percent in November as people are firming up their choices they're finally settling on Joe Biden I've said for awhile here Joe Biden feels a lot like that Romney in twenty twelve and twenty twelve that Ronnie was the presumptive Republican nominee when he jumped into the race yet of course coming second John McCain in two thousand eight and then over the course of the race people fell out of love with Mitt Romney over and over and over everybody got a chance at the top of that wheel of fortune every single person Michele Bachmann Herman Cain everybody got a chance in twenty twelve and then finally everybody can went okay I guess we'll give it's running it seems like that may be happening with Joe Biden in recent weeks by his sought to revive a flagging operation in Iowa spending more time in the state in out laying more on online and TV at the head of the February third pockets by his front runner status in this poll could cause him to come under fire from his rivals on Tuesday at six democratic candidates meet in the morning for the final day before the caucuses along with Warren Sanders and judge he faces Minnesota senator any club char and billion or act this time Steiner's diary showing some signs of life in the early stage after a huge amount of spending any club which are has never been able to really catch fire the poll also revealed about more about who voters would support as a second choice according to Bloomberg under Iowa caucus rules supporters of candid you don't receive at least fifteen percent on the first round actually have to switch to a viable candidate so the second pick some supporters could prove important so let's say that eighty percent of people vote for Tom sire well now they've just what you gonna switch to warrant leads for second choice twenty three percent said they would pick or if their first race did not make the cut off from seventeen percent in November booty judges virtually tied with Sanders at fifteen and fourteen percent respectively Biden was the second choice of only ten percent in other words it seems as though everybody who's voting for Biden his their first choice they're not a lot of people who are thinking okay well formed falls out and moving over Biden if one dropped out and probably that goes to Sanders it Sander traps articles to warn if judge drops out there probably breaks between all the various candidates but when pollsters ask likely caucus goers who they would pick if the only viable candidates in our caucus site where the top floor Biden said a twenty eight percent judges twenty five Sanders at twenty four Warren at sixteen percent and one person will not be taking part in the Iowa caucuses is of course Cory Booker to whom we bid a fond farewell we say goodbye to Mister potato head Cory Booker there were good times there are bad times mostly their potato times Cory Booker would go around popping those angry eyes blinked deliberately and then tell you it's like he took everything in the world what he released a video explaining that he was very sad to drop out this of course is prompted the usual spasms of apoplexy from all of the people in the media or now firmly convinced the Democrats are racist again this part I like I'm I I will say that I am enjoying the perpetual revolution promised by the intersectional advocates the way this works is that if the Democrats elect a black president twice if they nominate a black guy with no actual record over Hillary Clinton two thousand eight and then he becomes president and they do it again in two thousand twelve that doesn't matter anymore as long as you're not nominating a black eye this time that means that your racist and sort of how the Oscars work also doesn't matter that Lupita younger actually won an Oscar for twelve years later in two thousand fourteen she was nominated this year that means that the academy is racist does matter that right a girl it was nominated at the two thousand eighteen Oscars for lady bird she wasn't nominated for little women that means the academy is sexist what's the same thing inside the Democratic Party Cory Booker range on the stage Kamel harassing down the stage that means of course that the Democratic Party is racist and I am here for it straight into my veins here's Cory Booker announcing that his candidacy is over I will say that the music in the stairwell video does not really match the moment it really sounds as though it's it's an ad for some sort of tractor company but here's Cory Booker I'm suspending.
Struggling, Dog-Walking Service Wag Puts Itself Up for Adoption
"From wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday for ends. How much is that dog walking service in the window and it's the question a few prospective buyers of the pet sitting company WAG asking the struggling gig worker business is up for sale dale after a rough and tumble ride over the last few years? Jason Meltzer in brothers Joshua and Jonathan Viner founded the company in two thousand fifteen as a kind of Uber Uber for dog walking the idea. Download the WAGAP. Select your location and you can hire an independent Walker for fido instant the the market for all things are pets need is growing by leaps and bounds. You might say given our willingness to invest oodles of money and man's and woman's best friend and the idea felt like a winner it had grown quickly expanding into one hundred. US cities by early last year along with rival rover Wag. Tons suppressing considerable interest from investors in January of two thousand eighteen Softbank ponied up three hundred million dollars in funding valuing. The company at six hundred fifty million by the way the rivals of both raised. Just over three hundred million with that stash of cash. Softbank Plan to help the company go global and signalled its confidence that WAG would run happily all the way to the bank. Alas that didn't happen. Rival rover turned out to be stronger. Dog In this dog eat dog fight when win diviners and MELTZER founded WAG rover had already been around for four years primarily selling dog boarding. Although the two companies didn't originally go head to head. Dog morning costs a lot more but is less frequently needed than dog. Walking the rivals have come a lot closer together. They now both offer walks. Dog Sitting and overnight stays he's at the time of the Softbank Investment Wag was growing faster than rover but it's retreated since then hardly what observers expect when a fast growing startup gets a big boost of cash cash sales had been declining and Wag holds only about twenty percent of the pet sitting market in contrast to rovers eighty percent according to the Wall Street Journal part of the trouble appears to stem from the replacement of the founders with a veteran tech leader Hillary Schneider as CEO following the Softbank Investment a CNN investigation allegation shows significant dissatisfaction with her leadership from within the company former employees. Most of whom talked off record claim that she has been disengaged with the business they also say marketing dollars instead of growing actually shrunk after the investment the viner brothers are no longer associated with wag. They founded another another venture a scooter company called wheels both wag and rover have suffered from the problems dealing with real live unpredictable customers with four legs. There's some of whom run away in wags case a handful of pups have either died or been abused according to news reports over the years former employees told CNN an end that wags struggled to put in place procedures to ensure dogs safety. Obviously a huge problem for customers seeking to entrust their furry loved ones to strangers beset by problems wags suffered a series of layoffs. Still it inked. Partnership with PETCO. A few months ago on Pecos website customers can sign up for dog boarding services through WAG. PETCO may take a bid for the troubled company according to recode wag had approached its rival rover but rover fail to bite at a possible possible sale. The online publication reported more broadly wags problems are one more indication of structural weakness in Gig
Nonstick chemicals that stick around and detecting ear infections with smartphones
"Hello. This Welcomes the science podcast for may seventeenth two thousand nineteen. I'm Sarah Crespi this week show Meghan. Cantwell talks with science writer Saratova's about a nonstick chemical that sticks around in groundwater, and I talk with sham. Ota about his science translational medicine paper on using a smartphone. So listen for ear infections. I'm here with Sarah helps who wrote this week's feature to talk about how a small group of citizens in Rockford Michigan uncovered groundwater contamination in their town. And with the greater implications of this discovery are thinks much joining me. Sarah, thanks for having me, Meghan, of course. So could you talk about what prompted these citizens to investigate whether the shoe company factory in their town? Wolverine worldwide had contaminated their water in two thousand and nine wolverine worldwide announced that they would be closing their tannery, which had been inoperational for over a century. And the citizens were requesting the company I do a comprehensive environmental assessment of the property before the demolition. They knew from other tannery closures that Henry's often use hazardous substances when they're transforming rawhide. Hides into leather. And so they wanted to be sure that those same substances had not been sort of left behind on the tannery grounds. They were told that because there was no evidence of contamination on the property, that there was really essentially, no way require that testing be done. Meanwhile, will Verena had said there was no known contamination on the property. They asked the city to assess the site, but they did not want to instead they went and got the help of a scientist and launched their own investigation. What did they find from this, they uncovered helped uncover some of the highest levels of Pecos contamination in drinking water wells anywhere in the country and after many years of trying to get the company to test, the tannery grounds discovered that the tannery grounds are also contaminated with pitas, what exactly is p fasten? How long is this chemical been in production p bosses are a class of chemical? Nls known as per in Pali fluoro- alkyl substances. They were first synthesized by American chemists in the nineteen thirties and forties and their salient chemical feature is that they have a carbon fluorine bond, and that's among the strongest of all chemical bonds. It doesn't degrade naturally an environment that can be very useful for some products at lens durability. And also, these compounds can repel water and oil and stains, and so they're widely used in products, such as firefighting foams, nonstick, coatings, carpets, food, packaging, even dental floss some dental floss, it was discovered recently, there are over four thousand of these compounds. But the two most widely studied are called PF OA sometimes referred to as PICO and PFOS those two are no longer in production in the US. What are the impacts of these? Goes on human health were still looking into that. There was a massive epidemiological study called the seat health project, fat looked at people exposed in West Virginia and Ohio, they were exposed to fella, and their drinking water. And in that project what they found was a probable link to six conditions that included high cholesterol, all sort of colitis by ROY disease, stickler cancer, kidney, cancer, and pregnancy induced, hypertension initially, a lot of the Pecos research, focused on these communities, where there had been this high level of exposure, more recent studies, have started looking at the general population, and I think that that's where this gets really interesting because what they're starting to find is that studies are suggesting that even people exposed to what might be referred to his background levels of p fusses show, negative health effects, most interestingly and may be most concerning laid. Some of these negative effects are on the developing fetus babies. So researchers are saying that it can affect, for example, the immune system and these populations. Is there a standard level for what's considered a dangerous p fast level or is that something that's still also being determined? That is very much being determined and a believe it was two thousand and nine the EPA established a health advisory level of six hundred parts per trillion of PF. Oh. A and PFOS combined drinking water. And then in twenty sixteen. They dropped that level significantly to seventy parts per trillion and that in twenty eighteen a branch of the CDC came out with a new study suggesting Twenty-one parts per trillion for PF away and fourteen parts per trillion for PFOS, and then you have some researchers one at Harvard saying one part petroleum is where that level should be. So there's a lad of conversation around. What is a protective level in drinking water, this investigation in the small town has also prompted other areas to look into what their p Fasces levels are, and what has this unveiled one of the interesting consequences of the concerned, citizens work is that shortly after the state of Michigan launched what I believe is the most comprehensive statewide survey searching for pizzas, and they found is that here in Michigan. Nearly one point four million residents are drinking water from orces, contaminated with pitas. It's also showing up and things like foam, that's on our rivers. And so there have been a number of advisories. Do not eat befo. Don't touch the phone fish advisories, dear advisories. It's really extensive ubiquitous exposure to these compounds. And then other states also. Oh, are just starting to look, but nobody has looked quite as comprehensively as the state of Michigan has right. It interesting that all these investigations are being prompted but this also isn't the first time that p asses have been under investigation happened several decades ago as well. Right. Are you referring to the DuPont trial? Yeah. Sometime around nineteen ninety nine early two thousands a cattle farmer in West Virginia suspected that something was going on. Some of his farm land had been purchased by DuPont and not long after that his cattle died, and he wasn't able to get much help locally. And so he ended up going to a Cincinnati-based Turney who sued the company and in the process of that he was able to obtain a lot of internal documents from DuPont. And what he found in those documents was that both DuPont, and three who. Had been making pieces as well. Head Ben documenting negative health effects from exposure, experienced by humans and animals, and that they hadn't done enough to make this available to the PA, for example. And so the attorneys sent these documents to the EPA, and subsequently DuPont, was fined, and three m was fined believe a year later, was around that time that both companies agreed to voluntarily phase out PF away and PFOS. So when they phased them out, they replace them with a different chemical is this one actually safer persists lessen the environment. Well, that is a matter of conversation. They replaced PF away and PFOS those two compounds are known as long chain pieces. They replace them with shorter chain passes. So molecules with fewer carbons and. What we do know is that those carbons don't bio accumulate the same way as the longer chain compounds. And for that reason, there's an assumption out there that these are safer, but there are studies, just starting this is just starting to be studied suggesting that this might not be the case and the national toxicology program. For example, is in the process of starting study of believe it's one hundred twenty five of these lesser known. Short chain compounds to see if they really are safer than the longer chain compounds after this, this fine that they received were their cleanup efforts, or is there, a way to clean up these P asses from water supplies. What we know is that you can use something called granular activated carbon to filter out in particular longer chain passes, so PF away, and PFOS from drinking water, however. That approach. It has variable success with the shorter chain passes which can sometimes break through the filter and they can break through more quickly. So one of the things that water systems are starting to look at is using perhaps a combination of granular activated. Carbon with reverse osmosis, which is a little bit more effective at filtering out short chain passes. All of this though is very expensive. And so that has really put especially some of these smaller municipalities in a tough spot, and others Superfund cleanup sites that kind of thing is there any sort of fund that these local communities can tap into that ole pay for this remediation, one of the things is that because pizza's is not as needed as a hazardous substance. It doesn't qualify as far as I know for cleanup funds through Superfund now, some states are starting to pass their own legislation. In New York, for example, does designate FOSS as a hazardous substance so you can get funding through there. And then the other thing that states are starting to do is actually sue the manufacturers to try and recuperate some of the costs of updating their drinking water systems. Would you say this whole investigation all across the country is still kind of the first step of finding where these sites are? And then the next step of cleanup is still a little bit murkier. Yes. That's very true. Historically are understanding of pizzas and exposure has really been concentrated in these areas around particular very few limited number of military, bases, and also communities that are near manufacturing facilities, and what we're starting to find now is, especially as we have the tools to detect passes at lower levels were finding that these are in drinking water supplies and places, people would never have suspected.

The Englishman held out his hand squinting with the monocle pinched by his eye.

We only have two too many cows Bill Hennessy said we just have too many. That's why we're selling Bill a word moon. Hennessy took Bill aside. While the gentlemen buyer continued directing the movers moon. Why does that man over there think we owned seventy five hundred head of cattle moon smiled? It was something of a prank that turned into a long con that turn into a massive amount of money for everyone involved. So maybe Bill should just keep his mouth shut. Basically the British guy wanted to buy the ranch and instead of taking the owners word for it. When it came to how much cattle they owned as was apparently, the Texas way he wanted to count the cattle to make sure he was actually getting paid for could Bill believe it. Bill who had just finished inking a deal with the devil kind of could. Well, anyway, as Bill new their ranch was on a mountain actually own the home Outten, and it was really easy to lineup the cows. And just get them to walk in a circle around the mountain all day long. The buyer wanted to count the cows kidney fine. He could count the cows. So to teach molested about how much he should trust. You you condemend the pain three times more than the ranch was worth. Now, they were gonna pay them eighty grand. And since this was the mid eighteen hundreds that was like a million dollars moon Hennessy nodded. Yeah. And all Bill need to do nothing. He could walk away one of the richest men in the country. Bill shook his head moon and turn to find the buyer instead of things straight when he stopped in his tracks. Wow. Who was that? Her name was sue. She was the daughter of the older British guy buying their ranch. She was excited to be moving out west and even more excited to find a seasoned and dare she say handsome cowboy to show her the ropes Bill immediately forgot what he was doing and smiled. He he he was who was he again, what was his name Suchet rd that she wrote a giant catfish on the Rio Grande, not sure if that just met she was a good swimmer. Or if she actually wrote a giant catfish, it really could be either on the story. But either way she had never learned to ride a horse Bill and sue proved to have quite the chemistry and eventually Bill remembered his own name enough to talk to her one of the most intriguing women he had ever met the two. Guys, couldn't get a word in edge despite the reference to Bill and sue they were the only two people in the room the night wore on the previous branch owners danced ate. And drank with new ranch owners when it was time for bed moon. Could only laugh it was kind of a bummer that billon and hit it off. So well was surprised Bill was even into women who are coyotes, but more importantly, he never be able to see soon again after father took possession of the ranch the following day. He'd see the weren't three times as many cattle as he'd hoped and he would surely be after them Bill. Couldn't even say sues name, let him see her for fear that they be hanged.

This is a podcast where I tell stories from Thalji and folklore some are incredibly popular stories. You think you know, but with surprising origins, others stories that might be new to you. But are definitely worth listen. Previously in episode seventy five we met goes Bill. He was a baby accidentally abandoned by his parents, and raised by a pack of coyotes in Texas this, of course, gifted him superpowers because reasons and later he was discovered by his brother check soon. Bill, Chuck and Chuck's business partners opened the pinnacle ranch where long lost Bill went onto invent helpful things. Like LASSO in cows from horseback. Thus revolutionising the industry he also captured him broke the most dangerous horse in existence which he named Widowmaker time passed and then one day twister touched down in the distance. It was heading their way. Fortunately, Bill knew exactly what to do he rode like he never wrote. Before jumped off widow makers back in lassoed the tornado. Pecos Bill was dead. He had to be right. The guy wrote a horse named Widowmaker of toward tornado yield that he was going to last through the force of nature and then jumped in one hand the guy literally thought he was talking Coyote. So you can't really blame him for not knowing that that wasn't remotely how tornadoes worked regardless. The men watched with open mouths as Bill dove into the tornado moments passed, but then a cheer rippled up through the crowd as the twenty veered off course toward the plane's completely missing their ranch moon, Hennessy elbowed, his friend made about with gunsmith another character that Bill was surely dead. He winced quickly. Remembering that, Chuck bill's brother was standing right next to him with a nod? He consoled the man as best he could, you know, he really hoped he was wrong and all but also kind of not because six months of wages were on the line chuckled. Got every morning studying the white horizon. And beyond their fences waiting for built return, but as three months past and then six Chuck became less and less hopeful as little brother, the one that had somehow survived being abandoned in the desert as a toddler would make it back from his greatest feat. Still he would never give up on Bill altogether bills invention of LASSO and last wing cows had revolutionized their industry, and the original partners would all be millionaires in a time. When millionaires really billionaires the only issue it didn't take the other ranches long catch onto their new technique and their millions would only stay there's if they sold moon Hennessy mush mouth in everyone in their group were just eighteen to sell, but chucking gunsmith stood in their way. They had founded this branch is a group. Well, in addition to Satan, and they would sell it as a group when Bill returned most nodded in resolve but not mood Hennessy. He made no effort to conceal his discontent. Telling everyone always what he thought of bills chances of survive. Title. I mean, he lasted a twister. It was mainly that you couldn't last aware. But also mainly that bills fundamental misunderstanding of weather physics and like six other disciplines had obviously led to his death. It was at the bar in town that moon Hennessy found a sympathetic ear moon. The bartender said with a dip of his chin already at the bar SATA stranger his elbows resting on the counter Bill. The bartender. Greeted looking at the newcomer. What will it be the trainer laughed and look to the right and leftover shoulders. Why was this bartender referring to him by that mistake in name? Which was obviously a mistake. Paco's Bill if the legends of his grandeur were to be believed had fiery red hair, the stranger fluffed, his black hair. That definitely wasn't just a wig that he bought his walk here. The bartenders shrugged imported drink for the stranger who despite looking speaking and carry. Himself. Exactly like Pickus Bill had different color hair than Pecos Bill. So we absolutely couldn't be Paco's Bill the greenhorn tucked his red hair back under his wig and told moon that he had found his way down Texas from zuri. And while he didn't know too much about this pig goes Bill fellow and his supposedly chiseled cayote. Like features would he did know was that he wanted to work for moon Hennessy? If moon was the owner of the ranch down the road moon nodded. Yup. I mean, technically Pickus Bill was leader but seen as he was just blind dead. Where for the tornado dropped him. It was only a matter of time before moon took over. He looked the stranger up and down. And with a sinister smile welcomed him back to the ranch. Now

"In poughkeepsie, New York, speaking with fifty one percents in Pecos. The Pentagon says about fifteen thousand servicemembers have experienced some kind of sexual trauma while in uniform, but because of the stigma many wait decades before they seek help Bobby O'Brien visited a special unit at a VA hospital in Florida there survivors of military sexual trauma, receive intense inpatient treatment living with the sexual trauma is tough enough. But when it happens in the military, there's an increased level of power and control, according to VA psychologist. Jessica Keith often, the perpetrators are someone in the command line someone who has more power and power not only to ruin someone's career. We also have to remember these are people with weapons who are trained to use them. So it can be terrifying when you're sexually traumatized in the military Keith manages the bay pie. VA center for sexual trauma, their residential co Ed program treats veterans who have severe PTSD because they were sexually assaulted or harassed which can be especially traumatic is the perpetrator is a fellow servicemember. If they're in your unit, you're told that these are your brothers and sisters. This is your family that they're supposed to have your back. So what does it mean when somebody who's supposed to have your back is the same person who sexually assaults you it really increases the severity of the trauma on that person. So restoring trust is part of the treatment survivor. Jackie thornton. An army veteran says she felt betrayed and ashamed when her military superior assaulted her decades ago Thornton entered the bay pines residential program in January because her outpatient therapy sessions weren't helping I needed specialized care, and I knew that things were really going wrong. I was very depressed. I was suicidal. I couldn't function at work anymore. I really thought that way world was was done that. I was I was going to kill myself at the pines she meets with the therapist twice a week for prolonged exposure therapy, where she tells the story of her assault over and over until the strong fear associated with the memory decreases seven days a week. She's in a group session with the other fifteen women and men in the program, and they often go on field trips to be exposed to real life situations like a crowded mall after just a few weeks. Thornton felt a difference. My life's give him back to me. Again. I'm fifty three years old. I don't have another fifty three to go. You know, maybe. But what I do have left. I want to enjoy it and not be looking over my shoulder anymore. The program is designed to reintegrate veterans back into their communities their work and their personal relationships. It treats about one hundred veterans a year in the residential program and another four hundred as outpatients Dr Alphonso Corinna is chief of mental health at bay pines. He says he seemed veterans become more open about sexual trauma during his seventeen years there. So now, we have more males that are really coming forward and being assessed for military sexual trauma, which in the past. He was a no no in the military to come share those experiences. He says the program has changed as well. During that time, it's more open to trying different treatments when evidence based care doesn't work Keith says it's all about letting veterans set their own goals. We asked them what do they want to see different in their life for some veteran? It might be straightforward. They want fewer nightmares. They want less PTSD symptoms, but others want something very different. They say I want to be in a relationship. Finally, whatever it is for them. That's what we work on bay. Pines was the first residential program to treat both men and women and remains one of only a handful, but every VA medical center now has a military sexual trauma coordinator, I'm Bobby O'Brien in Saint Petersburg. And we revisit a recent essay from writer, Dr Jerry burns as arts educators who go in and out of different schools, my storytelling partner, Barry, and I experienced a variety of school traditions, for example, many schools invite clapping at the end of assemblies, but Ballantyne elementary school in few quavering, North Carolina. Does it differently? Ballantyne the firefly is the school mascot. So instead of clapping the students open and closed their fists like firefly lights winking on and off in that way. They expressed their appreciation with a firefly glow. Traditions vary in other ways to in some schools administrators greet us when we come into the building and tend to us throughout the day in others, a Representative of the PTO or the media specialist does this and is still other schools. The only official a Representative. We ever meet is the secretary who takes gives us our visitors pass and points us in the direction of the classroom or cafeteria. Of course, there are some things that are universal at schools like telling younger children to sit criss cross applesauce and in every public school where we work the morning announcements include the pledge of allegiance, the pledge always sends me reeling back in time to when I was a little elementary school kid. I didn't truly understand why I had to say. The pledge, and I definitely didn't understand all the words. I mean, how many six year old children know, what a Republic is not only that. I had a lot of creative pronunciations for the word indivisible. I said it differently. Nearly every day and often I didn't mispronounce it. But instead created a malapropism by inserting a word I knew so instead of staying indivisible I said invisible. Now, I knew that the pledge had something to do with honoring my country and soldiers, but I didn't relate to it or understand it on a personal level. So now as an adult visiting artist at schools when I hear morning announcements that feeling of childhood confusion echoes one morning recently. I was in the Chaumont school district in Schenectady. I was putting my heart together when morning announcements started. Eventually I heard the pledge all those feelings came back, but I was jostled out of my reverie because the rhythm of the. The pledges ending was different. There was an addendum. My ears stood at attention. As I listened to a child's voice utter another pledge as members of the school. We promised to care about each other. We will help each other whenever we can we promise to make our school a place of joy discovery and respect above all. We will always try to never hurt anyone on the inside or on the outside. I turned to bury my storytelling partner. Did you hear that? What was that? There was something authentic and achingly touching about it. A few minutes later, the principal came into the room. I rushed over to him and asked he smiled so big his eyes twinkled with pride. You like our school fledge, Mike it I loved it. That pledge was written by our students. He said they wrote about it ten years ago. And boy has it stuck these are their words. Well, I did a bit of tweaking, but not much this is what is important to them at school. No wonder it's stuck. I asked him if he would share the text with me. So that I could share it with you all here in fifty one percent. He was delighted as I held the paper with the pledge in my hands. I wondered what I would have written. When I was a kid. What thoughts would I offer to a school wide pledge? I would have loved having a student. Composed pledge about things, I really understood with words, and meanings that made sense to me, I'm not saying we should drop the pledge of allegiance it has important things to teach but having a child composed pledged to say would have made a profound difference for me every time I put my hand on my little heart. It seems to matter greatly for the kids in principle at the Jefferson school. Maybe the Jefferson school pledge could help us all remember how important it is to care for one another to respect one another and above all as they say every single school day morning to always try to never hurt anyone on the inside. Or on the outside..

Well, the way I go in before you hit the benefits office. RJ? I want to go back to the veterans nut telling their spouses what they need to do. And I I think one of the biggest things I've always pushed is that veteran better have is DD to fourteen and he'd better tell his is kids were teenagers because it all starts there. And too often when they're supposed to be morning instead, they're just frantic. Because they don't have the DVD to fourteen and they don't know how to get started. So please if you're out there, you're veteran. Make sure you tell them where that thing is should be handy. And we encourage it all the time.
