The Mystery of America's Current Labor Shortage

"There's a mystery out there, and you can help us solve it. Some of you have an idea of how we can answer this question together. I think I have a good idea of what is happening, but I don't have the complete picture. But I definitely know the problem, and we're going to talk about the problem together, and then we're going to figure out what exactly the main reason the driving reason is and then what I think their solution is going to be. Wall Street Journal writes this piece and it's exactly what we've been saying on our team because we're traveling the country and we saw the most bizarre thing yesterday. So The Wall Street Journal has the piece where did all the workers go? So we are in loudon county and we on our way to Vermont, and we asked ourselves the question we said, why are the Starbucks? And again, some people on our team love Starbucks, I know I'm going to get blown up by that but whatever. Go to second vote dot com and learn how terrible Starbucks actually is second vote dot com. Promo code Charlie to get some money off. Starbucks were closing at ten a.m. in Northern Virginia. They were open for 5 hours. They could not find the workers to keep Starbucks open. We went to Cheesecake Factory last evening after our event. And I kid you not, there must have been what 20 tables that were not wiped off are cleared on our way. They said that they have only half of their workers showing up to work. I went to a place in Phoenix Arizona last weekend protein house, great place, if you're in Phoenix you should check it out. It's a terrific restaurant. Two great conservative Christian patriots that run that place. And they said that they are paying people as cashiers, $17 an hour, and they can't get people to do the work. $17 an hour, and they just kind of show up whenever they want to show up they do whatever they want. We are hearing about this labor crunch all across the country. People are calling it a tight job market a strict job market and I can't quite figure it out. Now before you email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com you say, well, Charlie, it's obviously the stimulus payments, those have stopped. Charlie's obvious the generous unemployment benefits. Those have stopped they're still continuing in certain states, nowhere like where they used to be. Or Charlie, it's all this, so let's work. There's lots of different elements to this. There is no obvious answer. If you think you got the obvious answer to this, then email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com because I'm genuinely interested. There is a labor shock and shortage that we've never seen before.

Chip Shortage Highlights U.S. Dependence on Fragile Supply Chain

"Car companies across the globe have had to idle production and workers because of a shortage of semiconductors often referred to as microchips or just chips there the tiny operating brains inside just about every modern device like smartphones hospital ventilators even fighter jets as we first reported in may the pandemic sent chip demand soaring unexpectedly as we bought computers electronics to work. Study and play from home but while more and more chips are needed in the us. Fewer and fewer of them are manufactured here. Intel is the biggest american chipmaker its most advanced fabrication.

And even when our lands and villages aren't burning, where in danger at times due to climate change of Imminent death, for example, as we learned last month, uh, Phoenix, Arizona, temperatures reached 118 F Las Vegas 115 F Denver 100 F for three days in a row about 50 million people or under existing excessive heat warnings. And heat advisories. And what does this do? The working people, especially working people who work outside we are facing an epidemic levels of heat stress heat. Stress is when The body can't properly cooled down so its core temperature keeps rising to potentially lethal levels. Key organs start to shut down And yet we have working people in this country and around the world who work in the fields who work outdoors, doing certain kinds of repairs, who work in hot factories work in Amazon fulfillment centers and all sorts of places. Where climate change even when the fires aren't raging threatens their life, so it's time to do something now.

The top two leaders of our state are butting heads over the new rule that a single Arizona voter will lose their right to vote. As a result of this new law. This is just fixing a problem that doesn't exist. Team coverage just ahead Then right after we check in with Detour, Dan the push is on to get Arizona teens vaccinated before the new school year begins. But first our top story Arizona vote. A new election law will remove you from Arizona's early voting list if you haven't filled out the past couple of ballots you got, but the governor says it won't stop Arizonans from voting. Those on the list, who have not voted in two consecutive election cycles will be notified by their county recorder and be given the option to stay on the list or not. Governor Doug Ducey explains. If they respond, will continue receiving one. If they don't respond. Here's what happens. They will remain a registered voter. They can still request in early ballot, and they can also show up at the polls in person. On election Day. However, critics of the bill say it will disenfranchise low income and voters of color.

After Record Turnout, Republicans Are Trying to Make It Harder to Vote

"Louise Kelly, a record 158 million Americans voted last November. Many cast their ballots early and by mail well now, in the aftermath of President Biden's victory, some Republican state lawmakers are proposing bills that would effectively make it harder to vote. Here to talk us through what is happening with voting laws in three states where the 2020 election was really close our Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting, Abigail, since key of WK are in Lansing, Michigan. And been Giles of Cage's in Phoenix. Arizona. Welcome all three of you. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you for having us, Steven. I've got to start with you. Not only because George is my home state, but because there has, of course been so much focus on Georgia and on Trump's efforts to throw out Biden's victory there. What are GOP lawmakers they're discussing. Well this week, Many Republican lawmakers who pushed false claims of election fraud have signed on to a number of bills in the Senate aimed at making it harder to vote. And that's after Democrats flipped both U. S Senate seats and help defeat President Trump. They would do things like Ban absentee ballot. Dropbox is severely restrict who could request a mail in absentee ballot and would undo the so called motor voter law that automatically updates your voter registration. Whenever you go to the D. M V. Now there are a few proposals that seem most likely to be enacted. One would add some sort of security requirement when you request an absentee by male vote in the future, such as writing your driver's license I d number or sending in a photocopy of your I D when you request a ballot, All right, let's head west over to Arizona Been a zoo, you know Well, Biden's victory was razor thin there as it was in Georgia. What is the debate unfolding where you are? Well, we're seeing voting laws that would impact every step of the voting process. Starting with getting registered. One measure would make it more difficult for county officials to go out into the community and hold voter registration drives. There was even a bill to abolish the incredibly popular vote by mail system in Arizona. The sponsor backtracked off that idea within hours of introducing the bill. What other ideas include requiring people to get early ballot envelopes notarized that's been described by some as a poll tax, and another proposal says You could get an early ballot mailed to you, but you couldn't tell it back. They want you to hand deliver it to a polling place, and perhaps the most controversial ideas would directly impact the presidential election results. One plan would divvy up electoral college votes by congressional district like Maine and Nebraska. Another would actually let the Legislature straight up, revoke the certification of results and let lawmakers pick who gets the electoral college votes. Wow. Um, Abigail. How about Michigan Democrats control the executive branch, but Republicans control the Legislature. How does that dynamic play out in terms of what's happening with voting laws on the discussion over what to do with him in Michigan? Well, it's been a real split screen. We have Democrats and clerks who are pointing to this election as the safest and most secure of their careers. Bar. Bayram is one of the clerks from the larger counties and Michigan, and she called on Republicans this week to say what's been clear throat. All of these hearings that this election was fair and free of fraud. At the end of the day. If people do not want to believe this backed, they're not gonna believe it. Regardless of how many audits are performed. Reports are issue or how transparent the processes and in Michigan are. Democratic Secretary of State is saying she wants to do things like male absentee ballot applications to registered voters and federal elections. Republicans are countering with things like putting cameras on unstaffed ballot. Dropbox is neither of those are likely to get very far. But there is middle ground on issues like making sure there's common training for pole challengers on Stephen and been a quick quick reaction from each of you on that. How much of this in your state? It is. Real policy proposal. How much is for show? Well, Mary Louise after the last couple months of hand wringing over votes we've seen top Republican lawmakers in Georgia say that they're not going to do some of the more extreme proposals. They're not for cutting, no excuse absentee voting, and many of these bills are likely just to appease their constituents who say that more needs to be done. Why do Republicans in your states say changes like this are necessary, Given that there were no major issues with absentee voting in the 2020 election, Given that federal officials have confirmed it was the most secure election in American History. Stephen Bendy one. Do you want to take that one? Justification in Arizona is Pretty simply put as distrust, citing the misinformation that's out there and citing the fact that there are a lot of these Republicans constituents who say they have doubts whether or not those doubts are based on any valid information. Republicans have kind of push past that and just said the fact that there are doubt justifies continued discussions about the election. And changes to the law that they say might inspire some more confidence

How Climate Change Is Setting The Stage For Natural Disasters

"In addition to being the year of covert twenty twenty was also a year of extreme wildfires and hurricanes in part because global temperatures were among the hottest ever recorded. here's npr's lawrence summer. If you caught the weather report in phoenix arizona visit you heard one number over and over alright jamie. We are hoping for weather. But i know just hovering around these hundreds. It was over one hundred degrees a lot on a record breaking one hundred and forty five days all well. Basically almost everything set records. Marvin percha is a meteorologist. At the national weather service in phoenix. I've lived here a long time. I grew up here in the seventies. And i've never seen anything quite like this. Phoenix also doubled. The number of days at spent above one hundred and fifteen degrees and those extremes are dangerous. Almost three hundred people died because of heat related causes in maricopa county another record number certainly with the overall warm earth. It makes it more likely to get these extreme temperatures and those temperatures set the stage for other disasters. Twenty twenty hurricane season has been uniquely awful. There have been thirty named storm so far a new wreck. Warm waters in the atlantic fueled the most active hurricane season on record and many storms intensified quickly building strength faster-than-expected. The records kept falling in the western u. s. two or wildfires burned more than nine million acres. Tens of thousands of people fled their homes. Some with only minutes to spare three states california oregon and colorado had the largest fires in there recorded history. Dan mcevoy a climatologist with the desert research. Institute says heat was one of the reasons when you have elevated temperatures and extra dry atmosphere. That really makes the fuels more flammable. An easier to burn a hot dry atmosphere is thirsty. He says it's like a sponge pulling moisture out of plants and soils that creates the conditions for fires to move fast and burn hot on the landscape in the west is normal. We need that fire but the thing that's changing is how quickly they become. These large megafires mcevoy's done studies showing how he will dramatically increase. This fire danger in the west but even he's surprised to see it. Play out so quickly this year is i mean. How many times can we say the word. Unprecedented christina doll is a climate scientist at the union of concerned. scientists events. Like that make it really hit home for climate scientists that this is not just something theoretical that. We're predicting it's something that we are living through. Twenty twenty is basically tied with two thousand sixteen for the hottest year ever recorded at almost two degrees above average but whether it takes the top spot is beside the point though says the last five years or the five hottest on record since eighteen eighty. And it's only expected to get worse for me personally. I think that there's not going to be one. wake up. call that spurs the public in the us. And our policymakers into action. It's more the accumulation of all of these events and all of the heartache as incurred because of them that heartache she says should be a reminder that the more fossil fuels are burned. The more years like this. We should expect to see lorne summer npr news.

How Self-Driving Trucks Will Change the World with Robert Brown and Jon Panzer

"Robert say what's up to fire nation and let's explain the logistics industry to an outsider. Awesome well thanks for having me Logistics industry is incredible It's a trillion dollar industry in the us You know especially the trucking industry is saying if you bought it. A truck broaden Seventy percent of all freight is moved on trucks And then also trains and all sorts of the planes trains and automobiles in this immense amount and as everyone during covid with the increase of ecommerce and everyone expecting their stuff out hours if you order it. Rather than days An amazon really driving that through competitors senior huge announcements from walmart target an incredible amount of pressure on a already stress system You know and and getting stuff around this country is an important part of food security and you know on of course just convenience now we demand that you know our shipping rather than day shipping and Just an incredibly vital part of our economy and workforce You know just a millions and millions. America's are are employed by our transportation industry as well. It is incredible. I've actually lived down here in puerto rico for four years now so i was here during hurricane maria and it just blew me away that after hurricane maria like we still had the logistical capability to get food across this island with just like this unbelievably rural roads and mountains and all these different things but they were still able to make things happen to me. I was actually an armor officer in the army for two years and then my last two years in the army. I was a logistics officer. So i went to four uses to logistics schools. Well so i definitely have a little background in that. It's been it's been a while. Now thank you for your service though. that's cool. I appreciate that in the introduction. I shared with fire nation. Everything that you're responsible for which is a lot. Can you break down for fire. Nation your current business model so right now. We are the largest autonomous truck. Company in the entire united states with wapping forty trucks so kind of tongue-in-cheek because if anyone that knows the tracking industry that is You know it's not very much. But you know i it. Still a new industry and right now. We retrofit internationals and peterbilt trucks with our technologies with cameras and light ours and all sorts of great sensors and test the software that we're developing along with all the all the hardware as well every day Between kind of book any between phoenix arizona and dallas texas We haul cargo for folks like ups did a pile with the united states. Postal service Clean foods Arizona food bank and so we get real world testing and also what's nice about too is out there driving around trucks. you know. we're actually a purpose building. The technology with the design of what they call. Sad levels for basically for folks. that aren't familiar with this levels. Which is probably ninety. Nine point nine percent of the population that is kind of the levels think level five jetsons car can go anywhere with the robot level. Four is is really cool. It can go without a driver but it's defined route so between that. Ups facility in phoenix to the ups facility paso texas. We have the map that you can kind of think of it putting down a digital railroad and then the truck can run a thomas lee on that digital railroad where we map so it can't just on a split decision. Just take off to another location in in that kind of thing but The the technology and the business use case think repeatable routes high volume which is great for the long haul trucking industry. And that's the problem. We're trying to solve this great technology. So i'm actually one of those people who walks around saying very loudly. I cannot wait for the day. That every single moving vehicle is driverless. And whenever i come across somebody. That's like i will never get into a driver's car. I go. you are a crazy person because if you honestly believe the headlight you'll realize how horrible human beings are driving. It is so so bad. it's so so bad. I mean and smartphones with texting social media. It's only getting worse. I can't drive a car with a looking at who in passing and nine times out of ten their faces in a phone. I'm like you're literally driving a car right now. What is happening. You know we were chatting before you know the community. I live in a beach community.

NPR Poll: Black, Latino Households Struggle To Pay Rent, Mortgages

"Some new data from an NPR poll suggests just how badly Americans are suffering economically during the pandemic. Here's NPR's Chris Arnold Gina Lost Her job as a school bus driver in Chicago during the pandemic she was managing. Okay with unemployment money. But then about two weeks ago, she got a desperate call from her adult son his job had laid him off. He wasn't able to pay rate. There was an eviction moratorium in Chicago, but Jean says the landlord wanted her son out anyway a warning what happened next is disturbing and violent. She says the landlord got someone to threaten her son and shoot his dog a German shepherd mix that he'd had for years Economi. His mom they kill my dog. And the GATT told me that he should kill me to. MSA. Said market you come over here. I went over there. I said, okay star packing you gather go. and. Never went back. Gene only wants to use her first name for fear retribution. She says, she was afraid to report what happened to the police, her son and his two kids if now moved in with her. Gene was one of more than three thousand people who took part in a poll from NPR the Robert Wood, Johnson? Foundation. And the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health. Her. Story is a sad and dramatic example. But the poll found many people reported problems with housing healthcare, unsafe workplaces, and a very high percentage of Americans. Forty six percent said they're having serious financial problems are surprises how large the? Numbers are Robert Blend in is a Harvard public health professor. He says, the poll was done in July after Congress approved an extra six hundred dollars a week in federal and apply benefits, and that was still supposed to be flowing to people and yet. So many people said, they were struggling one in six households even reported missing or delaying major bills just so that they could buy food blending says it's. Like the government sent a hundred FEMA trucks into a disaster zone but a lot of people never saw them or got any help it just like interviewing people in a hurricane area and the people are telling you, there's no relief it should be there could be some people are having trouble accessing the HAL blend says the government should quickly try to discover where the biggest problems are and there could be. Another factor. My name is Linda Neuron who and I was an accounting manager dorato lives in Phoenix Arizona and lost her accounting job at a tow truck company in the pandemic. Once that stay home order was issued if our driving, they're not getting a car accidents if they're not getting in car accidents, we don't have much of a business Dorato said in the poll that she was having serious financial problems when. She was getting that extra six hundred dollars a week and so she was doing. Okay. But she knew that that was about to expire and that she wasn't going to be able to support her four kids on the state benefits alone which for her just two hundred, forty dollars a week in Arizona and she was right. She's now burned through almost all of her savings and she won't able to pay reds after next month it's extremely difficult. To sleep at night I wake up at two or three in the morning and I just have my mind's just racing just constantly racing, and then I'm having to get up in the morning and sit with my two younger children but I'm so focused on you know bills and money and jobs Dorato who's Latina says she's been looking for work with no luck. She says she has no family she can go live with or borrow money from. And Black and Latino households were two times more likely than white families to say that they've fallen behind on their rent or mortgage. It is striking. It's not surprising. David Williams is a Harvard professor who studies race and sociology. He says blacks and Latinos make money than whites and have less savings. So they're more vulnerable Andy says they're less likely to have family members who can afford to loan the money for. Rent or other bills for every dollar of wealth white households have African American households have ten pennies and Latino households have twelfth pennies. So it's really not surprising that they are really been hurt badly in the context of the pandemic

This is your last greatest you like you just like attempting really hard projects and. Hitting home runs apparently. So this one was obviously. Cova head and we had our original conference which was going to be in Phoenix Arizona September ninth through the twelfth we had to make a big decision and it was okay. Do we just not do anything this year or do we try to do our virtual conference if you will I don't really love the virtual name I was like call it digital conference that's just me but yeah. We made that decision and moved back our dates a little bit. So we are September first of the twenty third three days we've got so much content some amazing content. We're doing things a little bit differently than I think what a lot of lot of the. Virtual trade show conferences. You'll see out there in the photo industry or just overall We went out this a little bit differently in that we prerecorded everything and not like prerecord Webcam or zoom kinda thing we prerecorded like shootouts and we had people at our studio We had people at Peter Hurley Studio in New York shooting, and so we've got these amazing shootout through Canon Sony and pro photo. We've got keynote speakers like a tab of the coffee from her famous Bravo show. She is one of our keynotes and she's just incredible Her brother show was Tabitha takes over. We've got mark seller. WHO's one of the most amazing photographers on the planet. You he's done countless numbers of covers for Cube, fair the role I think he's got he's done over one hundred rolling stone cover so I'm really excited of our lineup and we're GONNA do this in a really fun way. It's GonNa be really fun over the three days that we're doing this. We've got kind of a trade show section. We've got a content section. We're GONNA be giving away a ton of stuff and that sue it Nikki closer will be live here in the studio Kinda just introducing a all the classes sue out was just decided a couple of minutes ago. WHO's GonNa do for closing keynote keynote live so we're so most of it is prerecorded, we will have live host, but the content that's come out of this is off the charts I'm really excited. In you when you say you're talking about sue brice. Right, yes? Yes right. These Subaru you should put it in front of her name. Yeah. you WANNA have you set the stage on just a portrait masters for the folks that may not have heard about the conference? What what so Thank you for inviting me to the last one I was I was there in Arizona. Last. Yeah. It was. It was that's the word. It was a blast. Folks that may not have heard of the conference described what what this sort of you know the the soul of the conference is intended to be win it's real versus now when. Virtual or digital doesn't it seem like that was ten years ago. Does right. It's I feel twenty years older I, know. Like as my hair. So the Portrait Masters Conference, it's really a boutique conference in that we have only we cap it at five hundred people We have only nine speakers, one stage, one room. There's no breakout classes we really tried to simplify it and we wanted to give people inexperienced that they never forget. So we added so many different things to this conference that you won't see at other places. For example, we put shooting days in the. Trade show. So some of which are sponsored can have a couple of shooting base Pro Photo will have a couple of shooting bays and basically, and we do a bunch of our own. So basically, it's a model backdrop lighting and you just go and shoot and people went absolutely crazy fort when we when we launched it at it, really we kind of created like a Disneyland photographers almost where you could go in. You could talk to the vendors you could shoot, you could touch. You could feel kind of the things that we love about trade shows. Right you have that opportunity to to touch feel products but also like you could read a camera camera body from any of the vendors, the camera houses and Kinda go around the show and and shoot the networking part of it, which this is one that suit came up with but a red ribbon for someone that hadn't been there to our conference. Before if you're wearing a red ribbon, it was to show everybody else. Hey, come say hi and their brand new they don't know anybody and it was. Just, it ended up being such an incredible experience for people because you go to a trade show, you thought the Portrait Masters amazing show that you wanted to go to it's it's an expensive ticket it's eighteen hundred dollars, but it includes all your your meals, and some other things that we we do. But for the Red Ribbon, it's just amazing 'cause I've I saw a dozen times people just may be sitting by themselves or walking by themselves and other attendants would go and say, hey, how are you come sit with me and and it was just that networking part that that really kind of came out of it, which is really cool.

Two New Bodies and Upgradingor Not - and more

"Now that the Sony a-7 seven s mark, three's been released I've got some thoughts about it, and if you listen to the show for a while, you know that I used to own the originally seven s a body that while pretty darn amazing was not perfect I mean we're talking five plus years ago or so my old friend Paul Giro's sonar is in somebody I've known for a long time since way back when I was in. College and he was a photo journalist in Phoenix Arizona not only gave me the push to launch this podcast. He also introduced me to the murless world without his encouragement. It might have been a few years before had serious experience with murless and if you forgotten the story or just haven't heard it, I, ordered the Sony a seven ass the a six, thousand incredible Zeiss fifty, five, millimeter, one eight, which is unbelievably sharp and Sony's Seventy Two Hundred F. Four all amount, not only that they day after they arrived I, shot the Utah State High School Football Championships with them a day. Later that was crazy I also brought my Nikon d four s with me but I don't think I even took it out once I shot the games with that tiny town little a six thousand which I still have and guess what I still got the shots I needed I have done. Significantly better with the deforest of course, but I wanted to put the Sony gear through its paces and that was definitely a good way of testing it. The A six thousand was great for action and there was light aplenty. So I S O wasn't an issue ISO also not an issue with the a seven ass where it failed of course was in shooting action though it's just not made for that. We're talking the original a seven. Ass Sony design their various lines of murless bodies to be purpose built. You know the a seven are was for resolution the a six thousand line was the gateway drugs I called it into mere less for Sony the a seven is your all around camera and the nine for action. Of course, the seven ass being for low light shooting and video or was since then they've Kinda all matured and they kind of dabble capably in each. Other's areas I like that a seven ass but I didn't love it. You know it could see in the dark and that was pretty darn amazing. But for what I was shooting at the time, it just didn't cut it. So I got rid of it. I had my defoe ass after all and later on at the D. seven fifty and then later came the as seven asked mark too which was way better. I didn't get one. Though and now finally the a seven asked mark three a body that if you're shooting in crappy lighting conditions a lot, let's say mainly, this is the body that you want. Sony. As we know has been absolutely killing it for years now. So at this point, you just can't go wrong with a Sony and that's coming from Fuji. Film. Guy If you need and that's the operative word here need full frame and DSR's are dead to. You go Sony I mean you just do if you want a pse crop, you go Fuji Film, take the savings on not having a buy full frame glass and then you just call it good and good the a seven ass is not great. Great is the word you're looking for it has a twelve megapixel backside illuminated sima sensor. Okay. That's where I probably lost something. You guys right it's still has a twelve megapixel sensor will. Yeah. The goal isn't massive resolution. It's light sensitivity. So you keep the mega pixels lower and with each iteration of these cameras, you can not only shoot in lower light. Those images are going to be less normally you're just not going to see a twenty four Megapixel, a seven S. model for at least five years or more, and honestly they could wait a decade and we'll be just fine I. think the very next one the. Mark Four, which would probably see in two to three years from now, at most is going to be sixteen Megapixel, you just wouldn't go higher than that. If you're GONNA want low light sensitivity and smooth nice noise free for the most part images you go higher in the Megapixel and all of sudden that's all mostly out the window besides who needs all. Those mega pixels when people are increasingly viewing your images and video on a smartphone or tablet rather than a computer. So there's that. Now what is new in this body is that has incredibly fast readout speeds a native ISO range of eighty on up to I s O. One hundred and two, thousand, four, hundred that's unbelievable and that's things to the new. Processor you can also capture four K. video at up to one hundred, twenty P and four K. Sixty P ten bit for to two with no pixel binning or line skipping and sixteen bit pro res- raw out the HDMI port up to four K. Sixty. P.

What Has Changed Since George Floyd

"Protests against racial injustice are motivating some political candidates to take on challenging races. In the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona Democrats are targeting a predominantly white district that has been held by Republicans for nearly a decade. Steve Goldstein from member station Cage's reports. That ethics violations committed by the incumbent could make the race more competitive. Arizona six Congressional district is centered in Scottsdale. Its residents are highly educated, affluent and early 75% white Congressman David Schweikert was reelected by double digits here in 2018. But Schweickart had been under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, and on Thursday he admitted to 11 violations and agreed to pay $50,000 fine Schweickart perspective. Opponents immediately pounced on the news. Here's Democrat Anita Malik. There's a part of me that's glad that we finally have closure to this investigation, but it is so infuriating to see him simply get off with a slap on the wrist. Even before acknowledging the ethics violations, Schweiker was already expected to face an intense general election campaign, in part because of an electorate that wants more action on combating racial injustice. One of the Democrats. Looking to challenge him is African American businessman Carl Gentles. While he believes many here are worried about education and jobs, he says, the killing of George Floyd has led to more direct conversations about racial injustice in the district has seen before. While George, Florida's African American I am an African American, and certainly I can see myself my son, my father, my brother in the face of George Floyd beneath that. Officers NI. I think people can see their own family members, no matter what race they are in the face of tourist Floyd Tianna Chander is one of those people Gentles is describing. She moved into the district eight years ago. Rallies and protests illustrated for her the dramatic need to find solutions. Chandler is middle aged and white. It's not okay to just be silent anymore, and we've got to figure out what the heck got us to this point and how we can try and sort of turned the tide and get rid of some of that racism. Hate Willingness to look the other way when things that we know what an OK continue to happen. Schweickart has been silent on race related topics. But the changing political environment since the killing of George Floyd may force him to talk about them. Erica County, which accounts for 60% of arrows on his population, has seen a clear shift toward more progressive voting in 2018 that included pushing Kirsten cinema to US Senate victory, becoming the first Democrat to win in arrows in a Senate race in nearly 25 years. But it's not just that Phoenix is growing rapidly, more diverse as Quentin James He's the founder and president of collective Pack, which is focused on electing African Americans across the country. There are a ton of suburban white women who are seeing these videos and wondering If those votes for Donald Trump in 2016. If don't do that, again, Republican consultant stand Barnes understands why Democrats are generally optimistic about 2020 here but says it's misplaced in the Phoenix suburbs. I do not think the racially charged politics that we're living in that the moment plays favorably for the Democratic nominee. In that congressional district, in part that it's so overdone, and I think voters are numb to that kind of play. But Quentin James believes that voters now more than any other time in recent history, are looking to choose the best candidate. Whatever color they are part of what folks One also know is Do you hear me? And are you going to fight for me? And it doesn't take white voters to get white candidates just to do that, or Blackwater's only looking for black answer. I think that's the core question, James says. As candidates of color are becoming more common, voters are increasingly more comfortable with choosing them to bring about changes many in the public are calling for for NPR news. I'm Steve Goldstein in Phoenix.

Diagnostic Differentials of Hot and Cold

"Hey. What's up everybody? Did you hear founder of the School of herbalism and one of the things that I talk a lot about on this channel is the importance of energetics constitutions in clinical herbalism. This is one of the attributes of traditional systems of medicine all across the world that we see really at their route and their way of understanding the uniqueness of a person and. The specific properties of medicinal plants and that's one of the attributes in I guess are more modern scientific era. So to speak that oftentimes gets overlooked right we overlook the constitution of a person and kind a tunnel in on the name of the disease or we forget the energetics of an herb and tunnel in on what kinds of diseases they're used for symptoms they're used for or. How, what kind of chemistry they have in them but really this integration of constitutions and energetics I believe is a critically important for the modern herbalists to understand and integrate into our scientific understanding of both people and plants, and so in this week's post. I answered a question from a student regarding some of the differentials between hot and cold. This is one of our primary elements of understanding of the energetics or constitution of persons temperature right whether someone runs really hot or runs really cold, but sometimes, it can be a little confusing for people in terms of like, how do you actually assess that like what are the core determining factors that you're looking at in a person to be able to tell whether they're hot or cold either constitutionally or in their current symptomatic picture. So that's what I cover in this post as super super important to understand this dynamic with every person that you work with, and so here it is, and I hope you'll learn something good from it. Thanks so much and take care. Our first question is coming from Janine who's in the vitals herbal practitioner program. And Geneva's asking. I've always thought of myself as cold and Dry, but listening to your explanation of cold and Hot from a more energetic standpoint. I'm actually thinking that I lean more toward hot these days and perhaps have along I'm wondering if you have any good resources for tests or quizzes or evaluations that one can complete to better identify whether they are cold or hot as it doesn't seem quite as. For my own constitution as it once was great questions in. So I'm going to kind of whittle that question down to basically what are some of the core evaluation criteria for how to assess and differentiate the temperature energetic pattern and term and the differences between hot and cold like what are some of the main ways that you see heat in cold? Manifest within a person and that could be either constitutionally speaking or that can be from more of. More of Pal g perspective like what are some signs and symptoms? Of Cold and heat. Excuse me so. So when you know this is really really important factor to consider whenever we're working with a person, a energetics of person tissue states and things like that. Really. Really important because it allows you to get more specific with your remedy selection. So you're not just choosing herbs based on. The condition or the symptom, but you're able to get a little more specific into the ecological state of the tissues that is giving rise to that symptom or that condition and temperature is really really important. So I think what I would like to do here is. Just, talk about cold and Hot and look at it from the orientation. We'll start off talking about Constitutional Amex and then dig into a little bit more detail on kind of main patterns or signs and symptoms that you might look for maybe some examples of some specific. Kinds of symptoms that you might see there. So let's talking about heat. And you know I think before actually jump into that I. think what's really important to understand about energetics is that this is how nature functions right everything in nature is based on energetics. I think and it's and it's very intuitive like these are things that we experience every single day. Right I actually think kind of joke around but it's Kinda true. I think. That's why people talk about the weather so much have you ever noticed that like when people don't really know Xavier like Oh it's pretty hot today or it's really cold today or for sure his dry out there. It's still raining. It's like we're and what does that? That's hot cold wet and dry right? That's the way we we always talk about that and so I always like to encourage my students to really. Remember that and to really pay attention to nature and. Come to an understanding of these energetic patterns, not just through what you read in the books. But also just paying attention to the season's paying attention to the weather paying attention to different ecosystems and then paying attention to how does. Different States of Nature Change your internal state, like how do you feel when you're in Phoenix Arizona? It's one hundred and ten degrees outside

A Teacher's Aid

"Forty four year, old Jan Carson has an unusually good memory of childhood, but then again her childhood was unusual by any standard. It started off in a typical suburb in Phoenix Arizona Mom was a teacher dad. She says was a hippie stay at home. Father who occasionally dealt pot. And he was incredibly attentive. He brushed my hair and feed me breakfast every morning. He'd read to May. Take me to the petting zoo, but you know there were always signs of problems. Her Mother Link Carson knew something was wrong when her husband James. Carson began violently threatening. Anyone who upset Him. Including her the first few times. He said it. She didn't believe him the second few times he said it, and then he got a gun. In nineteen seventy nine, when five years old, her parents divorced after a decade of marriage. Shortly after James, Carson remarried and changed his name to Michael Barone Carson. And then the problems got worse. Jen's I her father and stepmother's house is etched in her memory. There was no furniture and lamps. It was dark and there were hundred potted plants. It looked like the haunted forest and Snow White. I remember actively trying to skip this house. General remembers a particularly terrifying moment. When her stepmother came into the room and started rubbing her back. She ended up scratching her and leaving five open wounds. She was saying things to me like I'll scratch this team and out of you it was. It was horrific. You remember when someone tries is threatening to kill you. You know unharmed. Show in this way so. After that visit I got home, my mom saw wounds and she said you're never going back there. Lynn took her daughter packed to personal car in the middle of the night and hit the road spending the next four years moving from city to city. They eventually settled in orange, county California. She told her young daughter that they needed to be away from her father because he was sick I, was incredibly angry so on top of my mom, having no one that's believing her for five years on top of that. She has a five six seven year old saying I hate you. I want my daddy. Jen's life at home was tough. Her mother struggled with depression. Her Life at school wasn't much better. She was behind academically and constantly got in trouble. I didn't really feel like I. was a bad student I felt like I was a bad person that my very makeup was bad at eight years old. Yeah, during this period, I had extreme depression. At School Jen's teacher didn't recognize her depression or cries for help. Instead. She constantly reprimanded her for acting out once, saying Jen was the worst students she'd ever had. That was like just throwing a match on my gasoline. So. My behavior then got worse throughout the rest of the year. She didn't feel safe anywhere. At Home Jen would often see police officers at her door. They ask about her father. She didn't know exactly why because her mother would always send her to room. Still she heard bits and pieces and knew it wasn't good. By Third Grade Jen was preparing herself for another difficult year I went into the class and I remember putting my hair in front of my eyes, and putting my head down, and just not wanting to interact with the new teacher. But then that teacher Mrs Sylvia case did something Jen didn't expect. I just remember her on day one day to day three Sane Jenny heard. You're such a great reader. Why don't you come? Help me hold the book? That was the beginning of something new Gen learned to love books, and over the year she caught up academically Mrs case was brought her Baratz as a prize for good grades on Her spelling test. They also kept the hair out of her is. She also helped John Apply for the girl scouts, and for reduced lunch when she suspected money was tight at home which it was. But what Gen remember most of all were misses cases, sincere and specific compliments. A lot of teachers will say good job. She would say you're cursive. Letter Ams look like art. And something I've tried to do the rest of my life because I think it is one of the kindest things you can do because you're saying to another human I, see you. And icy the goodness in you.

replied will never recover that was the doomsday prediction that what he was going to do was destroyed the American economy well the exact opposite is happened let me just run down some statistics perspective I I I you have a very close friends and I mean this sincerely have very close friends that are very liberal I have a friend that I grew up with that I love like a brother one of my first friends when I real I grew up in southwest Florida in a town called fort Myers I moved there when I was young I was eleven years old and one of my first friends and we grew up in the same neighborhood road the same school bus we were inseparable as a group for years and years and years and how we breathe the same air and became sole polar opposites politically I don't know but we still we argue like crazy but we love each other like brothers and his view of the economy being dismal and he's a business guy he's a guy that runs a business it is impossible for me to wrap my arms around outside of the disdain for Donald Trump you can have a different opinion on feelings but the facts are still the fax we know that here in the month of December the Dow Jones has added over ten thousand points since trump was inaugurated ten thousand points since inauguration day the Dow the nasdaq and the S. and P. the three big indicators have all touched endorsed set records this month all that is absolutely true the lowest unemployment rate in fifty four fifty five years that also was true highest number of Americans employed but when you look at the demographics it's the lowest black

administration during this administration over sixty percent of those jobs have gone to women you got unemployment low employment rate hi you also have growth you have people's incomes growing faster

you were last year the answer for the majority of Americans is yes do you believe you will be better off next year than you are this year again the overwhelming answer from the American people is yes working class Americans are earning more and keeping more of their own money the tax cuts helped everyone and this is my problem with what we're seeing in America that instead of us being overjoyed it's what I live in a desert I live in Phoenix Arizona there was a time of year we call monsoon season where the rains come people dance in the streets when it rains here because of the long spans without rain when it rains it's a joyous experience we should be overjoyed with the rain right now we had so much of an economic drought and climbing out of a recession business is scraping by and not thriving and now businesses big and small are thriving in individuals are thriving as well as a nation we should be overjoyed and as a party the Democrats should be overjoyed the Democrats should be thrilled with what's going on the working class Americans the working poor as they call them in America that they claim to be the champions for our living better now than they have in decades wage increase job growth you have the democratic candidates that are still selling about would bill of goods that say we needed Connie that works for everyone what demographic is the economy not working for every American that wants a job right now has a job and we also know wages are going up they can't say they're not good jobs they absolutely are good jobs we have now shown that when the government gets out of the way the lives of people improve they do it themselves all this president did was on leash the job creators and look what it's done I will say one thing that I mindset shift that all of us could learn from when you hear the Democrats talk about give backs to corporations I want you to change the way they think in the way you think a tax cut is not giving anyone anything a tax cut is taking less from them the government doesn't give you anything they take less from you our taxes them confiscating some of your earnings if they take less they take less that's not giving

"Down the road to tortilla flat. Which is a either restored revived ghost town or a rebuilt completely rebuilt. Ghost town, the original tortilla, flat mostly burned down many many many years ago, they have a little restaurant out there. There's a teensy tiny museum. The restaurant is actually fairly good. It's really good. But it's very western themed, you know, saddles for barstools, and that sort of thing it's an interesting quirky place with decent food makes a really good stop fro either before or after your crews when you go there. It's about a half day trip to go out do the cruise. Have a meal, it tortilla flats and then drive back for the more adventurous, the fun part of the road starts after tortilla flat. Skip the cruise unless you want a really long day, but you could do both once you pass tortilla flat. You you get to a hill. And when you go down the hill the road turns dirt, it's basically the same unpaved road. It was in nineteen thirty six when it was last used as a the main highway between Apache junction, we'll between Phoenix and Payson and you are stepping back in time. It's one lane in some places. If you make it through fish creek through the steep descent, the twists the blind the one lane blind curbs and that area than the rest of the road is pretty drivable. Always check the weather before you go to make sure the road isn't in terrible shape or washed out from Raines was recently graded the last time we were out there. There are some guardrails there are a lot of guardrails because it's a historic road. The apparently can't do much to widen it or improve it. It, but that's part of the adventure. It's a stunning drive. It's a dusty drive. There are some some places to stop where you can admire. The senior admire the wealth lowers there's actually another lake further down Apache lake. There's a little resort marina down there. When you get to the end of the road. There's a big dam area which creates another lake Roosevelt lake which is a big recreation area. And once you get all the way to the end, and it's only about twenty five miles on the unpaved portion, but plan at least an hour or more to drive that part. You cannot drive it over about thirty miles an hour, most of it. And some of it is a lot slower than that. You don't need a high clearance vehicle most of the time, it's not a bad idea. But you can drive it most of the time in a sedan without any problem. But for the adventurous drivers, it's a gorgeous drive when you get to the end, you can stop and take a break at Roosevelt lake, and then you either can go back the way you came or. There's a state highway that runs through the it's the tunnel. National forests, it's a lovely area. Partly desert, partly forested and takes you back down south to down in globe and coming across globe and superior. There's another botanical garden down there that spectacular. If you want to do some more flowers if you're there and flower season, you can tell my thing is flour season. So flower season would be early spring starting in various by year. But usually starting late February, Pat, the poppies sometimes mid February. But March is really marching into early April is usually when the flowers and this year offensive your listeners are thinking about going. This should be a great year for flowers. They've had a lot of rain this winter at should be really really beautiful through most of it's already the starting to bloom even through all March should be really really nice and at the weather's beautiful March is the high season, and we'll get into that in a little bit. Because there's a reason why it's the high season if the high part of the high season actually the winter is the high season go ahead. You're you're talking about flowers though, that Dr gives you some spectacular flowers the hallway when you come down in when you get down. It's Boyce Thompson arboretum down in superior, which is again at far far southeastern edge of the the Phoenix metro area. It's really I would. Consider it part of the Phoenix metro area. But technically it actually is. It's a spectacular drive in that garden is spectacular to Seoul. That's the nice it'd be a full day at a someone wants to do something like that gets you out of town and let get you out into the desert, which is sort of nice. If you're in spending all of your time right in the Phoenix area. That's only five days. There's other things you could do I did not mention tally Essen, which is Frank Lloyd Wright's Greenwich that Yuka. Winter residents. It's a very interesting place to tour. I think it's an interesting place to tour if you're an architecture geek, which I happen to be I not sure that I would recommend it for anybody. Who's not a real fan of architecture? But if you are a, yeah, this is a very major site. In fact, it is on the list of possible UNESCO world heritage site as a multi site portion about Frank Lloyd Wright, oh, I didn't realize that. Yeah. No. I would agree that you need to be an architecture fan and partly because it's quite expensive to tour. It's not a budget tour, and you have to buy to to do it for architecture fans in general Phoenix is a great city because developed so much in the forties, and particularly the fifties and sixties, so it's unbidden century modern stuff everywhere, they do a mid century modern week in March. There's just lots and lots of interesting architecture from that period as well as some really interesting modern the lot of the civic buildings that were built. Twenty thirty years ago or more recently are just really spectacular both in Phoenix. And in Scottsdale in particular, the western spirit in Scottsdale is an architecture. Very interesting building with a lot of sustainability features interesting. Interesting features, there's a Pam the Phoenix. Art museum is a real interesting building. There's a lot of really interesting buildings. But for Frank Lloyd Wright fans, this is one of the big ones. The other thing. I didn't mention is for fans of either western art in general, art, or native American Arthur's a museum down in Chandler called the Basha collection. And it was the private collection of Eddie Basha who runs the who. At one point ran the Basha grocery stores, and it's not curated the same way the say the heard or western spirit is but for someone who's interested in that sort of art, it's an amazing collection. He'll have he has in some cases, hundreds of pieces by the same artists. You can see like your. Development style through time. It's a large collection in unlike most things and Phoenix for most museums. It's totally free only when weekdays, but it's an interesting thing. Most people don't know about the last one I'd add that people should maybe think about is the superstition mountain museum, which is a little more informal than most of the other museums. I've mentioned it's at the base of the superstitions where the Apache trail starts they have some really cool mining memorabilia pieces while not huge equipment. They have some historic buildings and some historic looking buildings. So they've set up kind of like an old mining town. And it's very atmospheric in the location stunning. It's a beautiful beautiful location. The other thing that we haven't talked about is why March is so busy in Phoenix. And it's going to be one of the more expensive times to go and that spring training if you were a baseball fan, the number one reason that I have been a Phoenix over the last twenty years or so is to go down for spring training. We're half of the American baseball teams. Well, half of the American US and Canadian will end up in Phoenix and the other half in Florida, and you could go down and see half the teams play in general, and how cheap it is depends on where you go. If you go to Scottsdale stadium where the giants play you'll pay as much as you will for game that you see in San Francisco, but on the other hand, if you go out to Glendale or Peoria to one of the other stadiums where some of the mid western teams are playing you can sometimes see a game for really cheap a game and a hotdog and can be quite a fun experience to go and see a number of the different teams all in a short period of time. Which is why it is. So popular will be a little more expensive to go that time of year. But that is a big draw in Phoenix in spring training starts in February and then finished his March. Yeah. And. Really it's March. That's the the big thing. Because that's when they start playing more games the pitchers catchers reported mid-february. So that is something that we have been down for many times and is good fun. But again, a little more expensive get friends to stay with. That's a great time to go but lights are going to be a little more hotels going to be a little more hotels early challenge and rental cars. I don't know if you guys fly drive, but I have been there in March where there has not been a rental car available in Phoenix believe that. Yeah. I mean, it seems as ING, but it's it's true because of the spring training, and all there is a lot of marches probably Phoenix's month for the best weather the entire year. It is a great time to be there. Usually I have also been there during hailstorms in March so easily could weather then but not always and for hikers the snakes aren't out yet. Okay. Good to know. It's still too cold. It's warm enough for us. But not for the snakes, generally. Okay. That that is always something. Couple things other things for kids. There's a children's museum I have not been there. So I cannot recommend it necessarily. But there is a zoo that our kids enjoyed when they were younger in Phoenix that was quite fun some other things for kids to but again, I don't travel with kids either. So it's harder. But the zoo is the zoo is very nice. Yeah. US news World Report that put that in their fourth on the list, even above the Phoenix art museum, and some of the other places we've talked about they put it above the heard museum, which I know is fighting words for you. But. It's a zoo. It's a good soon though. I would recommend that more of the shoulder season or the winter in the summer that's going to be pretty warm. Yeah. I mean, that's generally true anything outdoors. You wanna do even the end may? But for sure June through even I've been in their late September. And it's still Ben really in the nineties hundred degrees. So early mornings or evenings. A really when you wanna be out. You wanna do stuff that's inside an air conditioned, every places are conditioned in Phoenix. It is a drier heat than you would find in the midwest east coast or the south like an oven. But it gets quite warm. So and there's you know, spas, golf courses and all sorts of other things that people go down to Phoenix for that. I'll let you look on your own anything else. We wanna tell people before we get to some of our wrap up questions, Cindy mentioned is that for looking for lodging in Phoenix that there's really some key places. If you wanted urban experience to stay downtown Phoenix downtown Scottsdale, or in one for more laidback urban experience in one of the historic districts and Phoenix they actually have a lot of historic districts, and there's a Fairmont of Airbnb is in them luxuries arts up north in Scottsdale or the desert escapes out on the eastern edge of the metro area. You can find some spectacular places out there. Great views, and you can hike right out your door, and I should say that if you're looking at a map of Phoenix almost everything we covered other than some of the parks that we went out and heighten were in the eastern part of that circle that I drew. Around Phoenix with highway one and highway ten almost everything we did was to the east of highway seventeen which runs north and south sort of in the center of Phoenix. We didn't talk about places like Sun City where a lot of the retirees are and some of that area. That's a little less. Interesting to me, unless you're really fond of astroturf lawns and things like that. We also didn't talk about Mesa and Tempe, which you say is where you stay. Is there anything we want to say about those areas? Why did you stay in the farther eastern part of Mesa or north on the mountains? But downtown Mesa is really starting to have a rebirth in his becoming an interesting arts area. They've done a lot of landscaping they've put in a beautiful art center. They have some historic buildings. They lost a lot of them. But they have some there's a historic neighborhood. So it's it's becoming a really attractive place to stay and are more little more urban stay, but not being in Phoenix. It's let cheaper than downtown Phoenix Scottsdale Tempe. I have not stayed in Tempe. But we've gone down there on the light rail we've stopped there few times to eat and check it out. And that is of course, we're on a state university is located that's probably the liveliest place in the Phoenix metro area right now, there's all sorts of bars and restaurants in while lot of it's aimed at college students. Not all of it is and it's become a real interesting urban place, the kind of hang out and eat and do things and be. Outside and they've got some great parks. And so again, that's more urban areas, especially for younger people. There's a lot more nightlife. It's I have been in restaurants in Phoenix and Mesa recently that eight thirty you're eating dinner in their starting to put the tables on the chairs on the tables and close up for the night. So. If you want to be a little later, Scottsdale or Tempe is probably your best place to go and look for a little bit of nightlife. Excellent. All right. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Phoenix where he standing in. What are you looking at this is cheating? But I think the prettiest place in Phoenix is any place where I can see Sura cactus silhouetted against the setting sun. Just my favorite thing. Can you a lot of places that is a lot of places? Can you think of one place in particular? I'm very partial to lost Dutch mistake part because you can see the swirl mountains on one side swore months, the superstition mountains on one side, and you can see Phoenix off in the distance. And so you can have the best of everything. Excellent. One thing that makes you love and say only in Phoenix. It's the phones it's getting better. There are water features everywhere in Phoenix, just everywhere. And they recycle all the water. I understand that. It's reused water. And they reuse it for five times even before it gets in the fountains. But. It still seems just crazy to see all these cactuses growing alongside these beautiful ponds around the greenfields, and golf courses and lawns. It's just. It's crazy. Excellent. And if you had to summarize Phoenix in three words, what three words would use vibrant, artsy and Suru. Excellent. Well, we did we did talking about the cactus is so much the one thing that may surprise you. If you're not from the area is how old these cactuses are because I think oral cactus won't even get an arm a limit till it's like one hundred years old if I recall correctly. So if you see something up there that's got two three four arms as a cactus. It is hundreds of years old so beat, you know, be careful with them be gentle with them. But they are very interesting adapt Haitians of plants that grow in the area. Yeah. And they're only found in the Sonoran desert. So they're only found in the central southern Arizona into Mexico and in in Phoenix, UC them planted on the roadsides all over the place and just everywhere, but they're cool. They're so cool city if we wanted to send people to the best post on Phoenix on at exploration vacation dot net. What post would we send them to? I have a separate landing. Page for exploring Phoenix in the valley of the son that has just some summaries, and that has links to a few other stories and things a lot of the places of talked about I haven't actually written about because it's I'm down there so often I don't get things written up.

"To express VPN for sponsoring amateur traveler. Well, it's interesting that's in Scottsdale because of the city's Phoenix there's Phoenix downtown, and we didn't say, but there's all sorts of different places. We'll be talking about around it including Scottsdale to the east and Scottsdale. I would say of the places that I have been in the area is the most cowboy town the downtown Scottsdale has more cowboy art exhibits in stores and things like that and has more of that western heritage. I think they call themselves the most western town in the west. And it's love downtown scout till it's an arty town with this western heritage. And my grandfather actually was a cowboy so I have a fondness for the. Western heritage. We have his Spurs. He was on the last round up in Colorado when he was sixteen he busted broncs being. So I have some connection to this. Although I myself am not a coupla. I would say to if you're bringing kids along in being a western museum Alday seems like that might be the seventh layer of hell for you. You might. Instead if you wanna get in touch with the western heritage take them up to rawhide, which is a wonderfully touristy cheesy. Western recreation town in northern Scottsdale that is more of a kid friendly way to look at some of the western culture. And glad you added that I have not been to rawhide. I was looking at that the other day going I have to get up there. I took my kids there as as a kid. We join it. I mean, it's touristy it's cheesy. But it's great western spirit has some sections for kids and the western area part of it is Scott some good stuff. But both the heard and western spirit. Are pretty adult oriented museums. And glad you mentioned the old town Scottsdale because that would be my other recommendation as once you finish western spirit is actually right along that area where all the galleries an auction houses and studios and things are and they've got that fixed up as a mall. You can go down you can walk into some window shopping. You can go in the galleries. There's a whole range of art. There's the western art. But now there's a lot non western themes done by western artists contemporary artists than there was a few even a few years ago. There's a lot of good restaurants there. No problem finding someplace to eat. Did you have one you would recommend? I was looking to see if there were any that I could recommend, but none are occurring to me cafe forte. Mr. right down on that end in. It's a lovely lovely spot. They do very beautiful dinners and nice lunches. There. We've eaten there couple times. It's not a budget place, but it's not super expensive either. And also for art lovers if you really into art and want something different. If you feeling a little overwhelmed by native and western art, the Scottsdale contemporary art, gallery is down at the end of the mall in that is completely different small small small museum only usually four maybe five exhibits on installations more often, but really interesting edgy stuff. So if you want a little change of pace, that's a good place to walk down to and see what's happening. And as I mentioned Thursdays. Are there aren't night? Most of the year. They have galleries are open late to museums. They're open late things are free. Most of the things are free, and you can walk around, and it's kind of event, and it's a lot of fun to do something like that were to next day three. I think it's time to get out in the Sonoran desert a little farther. I'd recommend taking a hike. Phoenix is a great city for hiking or biking more just getting out endanger, you can hike right in the city of Phoenix. As you go towards the edges of Phoenix. You have the mountain parks, which are spectacular. There's some some parks that we've that we've really really liked because they have a nice mix of trails and fabulous scenery include the mountain parks right in town and yourself thinking of the Phoenix mountains, preserve. I'm thinking of all of those north so user mountain park Dowell park farther out is lost further out. Okay. The problem with the parks like doing the Camelback hike is that you're there with ten thousand other people. So Camelback so there are places to hike inside the city I've been in Phoenix mountain preserve which is an easy hike. And then there's Camelback mountain which is between Phoenix and Scottsdale, which is a much more strenuous hike, but a very popular hike, especially to go up there for sunrise is a very popular thing to do. But yeah, it is more popular while you can get around Phoenix proper Phoenix and Mesa Tempa without a car because of the light rail, you cannot get Scottsdale on the light rail, but you can get to the others Phoenix is so much easier with a car, and if you have a car like I say north cave creek has that's a beautiful park. It's not too far out of the city. If you're staying up in Scottsdale, I generally stay on the east end of the city. I generally stay way out in Mesa the eastern end may so or in Apache junction and from their lost Dutchman state park is just stunningly beautiful Usery mountain state usury mountain recreation area, there's a number of trails out there that are. Tackler and take you right up into the edge of the superstition mountains. So you have the desert and you have the mountains. And when flowers are in bloom, it's just it's a gorgeous area. Do you have particular trail you recommend the to remember? Well, there's chew suggestions one is just about any of the lower trails in Las Dutchman are fabulous. They're beautiful. And then there's a trail if you wanna go all the way out to gold canyon, which is at that far edged the mountains at the Phoenix area. There's a trail out there called the hieroglyphics trail, which has it's a not too difficult on though, I haven't been out there in a few years, but it's still open. It's not too difficult trail that leads out to a basin where there's sometimes waterfall. There's always usually a pool, and then there's petroglyphs on all the cliffside some of them you walk right past the first time, I was out there. We were looking for the petroglyphs in. We were looking so hard for them thinking, they'd be hard to find that we. We actually walked by them. I turned around at some point and looked at my girlfriend in the petroglyphs like over her shoulder right there where you could touch them. So that's a spectacular hike in. It's not a terribly hard hike. Please don't damage the petroglyphs and don't touch them while you're out there 'cause you could date that damages the the artwork, but that's a spectacular hike on that end say we've gone out cave creek in the north has really some wonderful, easy, easy hikes. Kimba Wimpy hiker these days. So. But I would spend the day and just take your time and do one of the parks and enjoy the desert again if you're out there in the spring, the flowers in the desert are spectacular just spectacular. So that's my day. Three is Spencer timeout in for hiking around or in the mountain forests are in the desert area hiking around day four I'm going to suggest something that has nothing to do with Phoenix. Except that it's the only place you'll find this. And that is the musical instrument museum. Good. I was gonna get there. If you didn't. And it's not the only place you'll find it. But we'll talk about the game hoping to see the other one to spring. So the musical instrument museum ignored the name. It's a music museum. The name. There are instruments in the museum. So that is not an accurate. Isn't the totality of the museum? It's really about music and the people who make music as well as the instruments it's experiential in that you put on a set of headphones as you walked through the museum, and as you look at an exhibit. If you turn to watch a classic performance on video you'll hear all the sound over your headphones. If you go up and look at Bali's instruments as you look at the gamma you'll start to hear the Gammel on play in your headphones. If you're watching classic rock somewhere again, you'll hear the sometimes nation, but usually it's just the music. It's a fascinating Newseum to go through in the shows. They have their special exhibits include things like women's Rackers, costumes, or we went to that was it was an art exhibit. I don't remember what they called it. But it was like dragons vines, and it was all the inlay guitars and musical instruments from around the world from the US. It was just an incredibly beautiful show. You've been there. Chris. Wouldn't you say that there's something there for absolutely everybody? I have not been there. My wife has been there to this one. I have been to the one that inspired it in Brussels. But I have not been to this one yet. Oh, will you need to get there? It's unbelievably fun. And it takes leave a lot of time. We left about three hours to do the museum. We took my mother there, and we figured she'd be bored in three hours, and she wasn't board, and we weren't bored in the museum was closing. And so we were very disappointed that we had left more time. That's the same thing. I heard from oh if it was a trip where I drove back from Phoenix, San Jose, California, which is home for me and my wife, flew back. So she had a little more time that to to go and explore in what with reservoirs thoroughly enjoyed it. Yeah. It is a very good reputation. But personally been there I'm gonna check out the one in Brussels spring. I hope so I can compare the two, but I was very very impressed and for lovers of more world music or more. Interesting things, you don't usually see in concerts. They have a beautiful beautiful studio concert space. They're and they do full range of form Ince's through the winter at least. And so if you're heading to town, you can check out and see there might be something really unusual there that you are unlikely to hear somewhere else than it's beautiful space to hear music in. Excellent. Well, you're out in kind of out in that end of of Scottsdale. I think it is it's way north in Scottsdale. So maybe it is gut feeling Notre kind of Scottsdale Phoenix somewhere over there. The trip me up because most things just say Phoenix in the address. And so you're not really sure there is a loop of highways that kind of to me defines the main part of town. And e this is one a one on the north and ten on the south, and this is the northeast corner of that loop. It's out ways compared to the other places we've talked about while you're there. It's further west steel for something again, a little different. But now only probably in Phoenix, there's a place called the deer valley petroglyphs do valley petroglyphs, preserve. There are petroglyphs had mentioned on the hieroglyphics trail. There's actually petroglyphs you can see on the south mountain hike, but deer valley has a whole hillside boulders with hundreds and hundreds of petroglyphs they have a interpretive center that talks about the petroglyphs attacks about the area settlement in the area. It's a really pleasant little site. And if you're like me, really bad at spotting petroglyphs, these are even if you can't find them. I don't know how you couldn't there right in front of you. But they have volunteers out there to help you see the petroglyphs little show you where they are in point them out. So if you wanna see petroglyphs this it's handicapped accessible, it's an easy place to see a little bit more about the history of the area and see these ancient petroglyphs, it's in some really interesting spot. And it's a good extra spot. Run to if you're out at the music musical instrument museum, because it's kind of in that corner of more inner urban area. So for my last day. I am proposing that you leave that civilized Phoenix area behind and head out into the superstition mountains superstitions are on the east. They kind of the east border of the Phoenix area. Beautiful rugged mountains. They don't look like there is rugged as they actually are. There's a roadway into the superstitions historic roadway called the Apache trail. It's if you go out to Lou loss Dutchman and some of the mountain parks out that direction you go right on the patchy trailer up to it for a while on the Apache trail, the first half of the trail is a paved road. It's very scenic. But it's pretty good condition. It's an easy drive. Anyone can drive it. A good half day trip would be to take the trail out to canyon lake in take a cruise on the steamboat Dolly, which will take you down into. Along canyon lake and into its back in early backwaters, but the little offshoots canyon lake is a reservoir. It's Switzer flooded. Canyon has steep cliffs, lots of desert scenery, you might even see some some big horn sheep some wildlife while you're out. It's just a really pleasant little cruise either before after the Dalai, you should continue down

"For both adults and for children in the area. You're talking about here is an era where they want to pending on how you how you look at this. They're the one side would say they wanted to include the native Americans in American culture, and therefore they wanted to inculturated them. And the other side would say that they wanted them to lose their identity as native Americans and inculturated them. But it was definitely at a very intentional move to bring them in to have the move away from their families to go to these boarding schools and two tournament white people would be the crude way of saying that. Yeah, it's very complicated history, and it's very painful history. And although it's mixed for some people that experience as much as it was it had some negative sides. Also, brought good things to them others found it just devastating. And they try to deal with all that in a really meaningful, and I think respectful way at the herd. The herd has it's mostly native curator's in. So they do a really nice job at dealing with those complicated issues. The other thing the heard is is a arts museum contemporary or more historic pieces of art, usually all native arts. The most recent show featured Yupik masks from Alaska combined with works by Matisse because he had used some of these masses inspiration in his work. Generally, though, the shows are focused on native arts native artists, the shows are always splendid really high high quality works. If you're at all interested in native art and the contemporary native art seeing the heard will have something spectacular. They have the finest collection. Definitely in the west and probably some of their collection is probably equal to some of the pieces the collection at the national museum of the American Indian. They really do a nice job with their show. Does depending how long you heard you have a couple other options for the day. You are right downtown at the heard you're in an old historic neighborhood. You're just north of the Phoenix art museum. The phoenix. Art museum has a lovely collection. They are pretty much the standard big city museum. They have a lovely collection. But it's it's not Phoenix specific for the most part, the exception to that is their photo exhibit draws from the Zona state university collection, and usually has some really interesting things in it. And they do spectacular spectacular special exhibits. So if you're an art person, you might just want to walk down the street and spend the rest of the day at Pam. I did forget to mention that at the heard have lunch before you leave the herd. They have a fabulous cafeteria then head onto whatever else. The Pam would be one of them the Phoenix art museum the other action. If you kind of had enough art for the day, or what a little smaller museum is to get in. Your car and head over to the smaller museum at the state capitals. The state capitalism. It's the old capitol building. They've preserved a few rooms in the building. But they have some really interesting exhibits in there. It's not very big. But they have a exhibit on the Zona the worship which was sunk in Pearl Harbor and some memorabilia from some of the survivors as well as this was news to me that all these ships have find China and silver and fancy settings like you get some Victorian dinner party, and they have all that unto splayed there as well. They also have some very interesting displays on the beginnings of AirAsia as a state in the establishment of the of the state, including the fact that Arizona kind of played a trick to get into the US as a state. They were required to change something in their provision for how they will how the handled their judges and resulted didn't like with the federal government wanted them to. Do. So they went ahead and did it to become a state. And then as soon as they were state, they went and undid it and did it the way they want it to. And the whole section on it. It's really quite interesting. So those are my day to number one my action number two is to go back up. If you haven't been discussed to go to Scottsdale and do western spirit. I don't know. Have you been to western spirit in Scottsdale? Chris I do not know where you speak of with western. Still. But well, this isn't relatively new museum. It's maybe five years old at the most they're trying to capture the full extent of the the life and population changes in the west, and it has several components that it's a fine art museum more than a history museum. Although it does have historic pieces. One piece of the museum is a cowboy collection or western collection that has things like Spurs and saddles and all the things you'd expect in like a cowboy museum or an old west museum except most of the pieces were collected because of their artistic value more so than as artifacts of the old west that's a fun place for kids. But it's it's kind of cool for everybody because they have all this stuff. And you start looking at it. And you're like, wow, I never knew Spurs could be that interesting. But they can be part of museums fine. Art, mostly they've been expanding what they've been showing. They usually always have a big section by a prominent bronze artists who does away art in features native Americans, although he's not native American himself. They've added now a western movie poster collection that they acquired so there's usually some sort of western movie themed exhibit. They've also added a collection of Hopi classic historic and contemporary, but mostly historic Hopi pottery that they always have some of undisposed, and then they have some other traveling exhibits they've had western cartoons. They've had the towels painters different things very much art based most of the first floor is very much art based except for the movie posters in the western cowboy things the second floor has to Perm semi permanent exhibits one of which saved Alaska's. It's kind of. Zossen? It's a fine. It's interesting. He's laughing. It's a fine art exhibit. That tells the story of the settlement of the west and meeting of the natives and the Anglos as they started settling the west, it's a big Zabit. And it's interesting, but more interesting as the other half, which has mostly has some fine art, but it mostly has more what we would consider artifacts and objects. So it has some artifacts and things from the Lewis and Clark exhibition. It has collection of spectacular chief's blankets. It has a bunch of Curtis. And they've changed this since I was there. The first time of Curtis original Curtis images of native Americans and showing all the different printing presses he used which was something. I had never seen the goal tones in some of that before. And so that was really interesting. It's got a fabulous mix of items and again, very large exhibit. So this is a museum that if you wanna see everything will take most of the day to take a break here and here from a sponsor with all the recent news of online security breaches is hard not to worry about where your data goes making it online purchase or simply accessing your Email could put your private information at risk.

"The bags back on the road. There and read it's go real good pass board. Hamma traveler pursued six hundred forty seven today. The amateur traveler talks about art, museums and western culture, hikes petroglyphs and Naro cactus. As we go to Phoenix, Arizona. The metre traveler, I'm your host, Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Phoenix. I'd like to welcome back to the show Cindy Carlson from exploration vacation dot net. Who has come to talk to us about Phoenix cine? Welcome to the show. I Chris thanks for having me or welcome back to the show said he was here about one hundred episodes ago. I was surprised it was that long ago talking about northern Vietnam. And if you haven't heard that episode I like that episode, obviously because otherwise she would be back. So Cindy, we're talking about a much more domestic destination this time in what's your connection with Phoenix? My now there's been down there about thirty years now. And so I've been going down there pre regularly since about nineteen ninety five bending sometimes just a few days and sometimes spending even a couple of weeks down there exploring the area. Excellent. So she is a snowbird in the language of the area. Yes. My parents are snowbirds I'd snowbird if I could convince my husband to spend more time down there but likes books. Gets a tad warm in the summer for me and Phoenix. And just so we know we usually don't talk about whether for a while. But one of the reasons a lot of people come down in the wintertime, lovely lovely weather summertime. They'll get one hundred days in a row that will go of one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So that just baby something you think about we have a friend who moved to Phoenix because the summer's here in San Jose that only got two ninety were not hot enough for her. So if you like hot weather, that's definitely good time to go lot more people there in the winter. And there's a lot to do. Actually, I haven't been there in the summer, but there's a lot to do in the summer inside. And there's actually water in rivers and floats and things I have a lot of friends that live there year round. And they actually say summers aren't always that bad. Right. Well, it depends. Again, what you like. And I do know that the friends who go out hiking tend to do it early in the morning in the summertime or or later in the evening usually early in the morning when it's the coolest time of day, but what kind of itinerary do. Recommend for us for Phoenix. So I tried to put together, and I tend to worry that's really aimed at first time. Visitors to Phoenix it gives them an idea of what Phoenix is about where it came from what the landscapes like and what the people who've lived their past and present are like and it's geared. It's five days because five days seems to be to me a good amount of time to get a real feeling for Phoenix. It's still leaves you enough time that if you want to spend time golfing or laying by the pool or you wanna make a trip up to Grand Canyon, which I know you've covered on one a year. Previous shows you can add that on then it's a week's vacation and still do all the stuff that I'm recommending will you we won't took quite as much about site trips. But there are a number different things if you had north or south either down to Tucson, we've done it episode on that or up to flagstaff area up to Grand Canyon or even up to the north east corner of the state, we've got different shows about northern Phoenix. So we won't be talking about them now. But what should we do in Phoenix? Well, actually, let me back up a bit here. I should start with. Why should we go to Phoenix of all the places we should go to sell? I think Phoenix gets the bad rap as as a snowboard destination. Oh, it's just where the retirees go because warm it's hot in the summer. Why would you ever go to Phoenix? And Phoenix, particularly in the last fifteen years twenty years, maybe now has really become a arts and culture hub. It's got a a thriving lively downtown great art scene. It has spectacular scenery all around the city with the snoring desert there. It's become a real interesting place to go. There's something there. I think for everyone, and it's really a worthwhile destination. There's a lot to see in Phoenix that you probably won't see and other places. The only part of that that I would show is that that has happened over the last ten or fifteen years because I've been going there at longer than that. And I think it's getting better known for that over the last ten fifteen years, I think that's been there for. A while in terms of the arts and culture. I think part of it is as light rail's come in. It's maybe it's more that it's expanded places like downtown Mesa that used to be really dead are now little art tub's. Okay. And so maybe that's it because it's been building. It's I've always liked Phoenix. But I think it's really become something that a lot of people don't expect excellent. And we're should we start? So I'm gonna suggest that people start by learning about the Sonoran desert by actually going out to the desert botanical garden, which is in northeast. It's a beautiful place as botanical garden it, of course, has landscaped areas and non native plants, but it also has large areas of native plants. It's a great place to soak in the beauty of the desert and to learn about the desert, so that when you go hiking on your own, you know, that even those those Challah cactuses might look really friendly fuzzy that to get near them. So it gives you both that introduction to the desert as well as beautiful place to wander. You can easily spend a few hours or half day there. They have a fabulous cafes. What's a nice place to spend some time in the garden, and then wandered to the cafe will want to make sure that we're talking about the same place because the desert botanical garden that I know is not in north Phoenix. It's on almost in Scottsdale. So it would be east of Phoenix. It's right on the border of Scottsdale. And Phoenix you that's not north Phoenix east, east Phoenix. Okay. And that's another thing. I should mention that. I have geographic dyslexia when it comes to Unix. So keen on is because I miss a west when I really mean east it's over by Scottsdale, and it's beautiful. It's right at the foot of the mountains beautiful place to walk in wander. I happen to see it. The first time when there was a truly exhibit. So my experience there is quite different because there was all sorts of glass being shown at the same time. But what if a place especially for kids to recommend our kids love the butterfly exhibit, for instance, there as well as some of the other. And they've actually redone the gardens since you've been there since the league's of it. And there are still still Hulas and some other sculptures in the garden. They do special events visitors coming into Phoenix should check the schedule and see they sometimes do big fun parties out in the garden at night and different things can be hard to get tickets to those. But there are blast. If you can get them. Excellent. So because that's not necessarily a full day. If you want to do a little more that day, I would continue on towards the west to the Pueblo grandee museum, which it's a museum in an archaeological park, it's fairly small museum. But they do really nice job of talking about the hokum people who live in the Phoenix area more than thousand years ago. They actually were the original ones building canals in the salt. River valley canals bring all Phoenix's water in today. But that actually goes back to ancient culture that lived there more than a thousand years ago. It's a nice little museum the archaeological site itself, isn't terribly into. There's not a lot left. But the museum dozen nice job of introducing you to what this area was like in the people who live there a long time ago. The other alternative end out your first day would be if it's on a Thursday had over to Scottsdale and do evening art walk and have dinner down on the in the arts district in historic Scottsdale, which is a really fun place. And I'll talk about that a little more in the next day. We should say we haven't really even gone very far from the Phoenix harbor airport here for the first two stops does botanical gardens. The public grid museum are practically stone's throw from the airport. So we haven't ranged very far afield yet. This is all fairly easy to a stone. So for Phoenix anyway, which is a gigantic Norma's area. Geographically is a very large area. Geographically. That's right. I forget to actually put together two different options, depending on visitors interest level of interest in native cultures or cowboy culture, I've got two different options. One the one would. Be two more about the people who live in the southwest today. And that would be a trip to the heard museum in downtown Phoenix even closer to sky harbor airport. We haven't left really Phoenix at all for these. The today's the herd is both a cultural history and art museum about half the museum or more is devoted to exhibits on the peoples of the southwest with separate areas on each different culture, and both modern and historic pieces of art in basket tree in different daily aims of daily life. The other part of the museum includes an exhibit which for in my part of the country is something people don't know as much about as the Indian boarding school era. They've just redone the exhibit. I haven't seen the new one. But the old one was both fascinating and really heartbreaking. But really really interesting again mostly history. But combining modern perspectives and information as well. And presenting it in a way. It's very very acceptable like the exempts really geared for both adults and for children in the area. You're talking about here is an era where they want to pending on how you how you look at this. The one side would say they wanted to include the native Americans in American culture, and therefore they wanted to inculturated them. And the other side would say that they wanted them to lose their identity as native Americans and inculturated them. But it was definitely a very intentional move to bring them in to have the move away from their families to go to these boarding schools and two tournament white people would be the crude way of saying that.

"The story out of Phoenix Arizona. Investigators are possible taking a closer look at possible. Sexual assault are for a woman. There was an vegetative state for fourteen years gave birth. Oh, but that set in for a minute to do some math there. But that set in for medicine woman patient of the hacienda health care skilled nursing facility for fourteen years. And they didn't know she was pregnant until she went into labor unconscious at a nurse that happened to be there gas or an attendance help deliver that baby right there. It's very possible. Somebody's going to have to go to jail. I don't think we need any further explanation. I think we can all figure out what happened, and it's not pretty I think there's a special place in hell for people that rape those were disabled unconscious. Do what you have to do sad sick and twisted immediately. Wow. Yeah. Now, I wa this unnamed woman has been in the patient there for at least fourteen years after a near drowning left her in a vegetative state. A source familiar with what happened who asked to remain anonymous told the Arizona family that staffers at the city had no idea the woman was pregnant until she went into labor this past Saturday. Wow. Now, the source said the nurse at the facility delivered the baby who's alive and healthy. The baby's fine law enforcement immediately got involved to determine how this pregnancy could have happened. I think we know how. Yeah, we just got to find out who. Now, the source said the patient required around the clock care that many people would have access to her room since the birth of acidity has instituted a new rule requiring Mel staffers to be escorted by a female staffer whatever they go into a room with a female patient this according to the zone family now inside are found at the nursing facility have been previously citing for the state of health authorities for another complaint of inappropriate behavior. A nursing assistant a resin complained into the inspectors that the nurse would enter shower rooms while residents were bathing naked, and so they got a complaint for that several years ago lovely I'm curious why would you leave somebody in a vegetative state for fourteen years? Are they hoping that this person is gonna come out of it? I know you don't have the answer to that. But it sounds like you do. Tell us now. I sure that family do I don't I just saying that what I what would you do all your family members are listening? What would you do? Thanks todd. I don't know you're the one. So what would you do in this situation? That's a tough call. It's a tough call. I just doesn't sound like it's a tough call. I think you would probably unplug that relative. Well, I just think there. You come to the point. You know, if it's been a few years. Golly. Obviously nothing is going to change. But it's a top call. But. Doesn't sound like it's a tough call for you. Sounds like you might accidentally unplugged that machine. B b b. I think you've really gone to the dark side, you're the one that went to the north side. Talking about unplugging. Explain explain tell me how you're going to tell this family to unplug grandma. You brought it up this. This would rather not this the side of the ankle you brought I just unfortunately what I did was. I shared a thought that I probably shouldn't have shared and now you're putting me on the spot. Don't give me all the credit. You're the one that said what the hell is she doing in a vegetative state years? What the hell? But you said what is she doing in a vegetative state for fourteen years? I just think that that probably the writings on the wall that this is probably as good as it's gonna get. But I guess that's for this family must be a hard call to make. That's all I can say it must be hard for them to make that call must be in your world. It would be an easy. I have no idea. I have no idea. Todd. I know it sounds like you do it sounds like we have a pretty good idea. It sounds like there's going to be an interesting conversation over the dinner table tonight after she Moseley yard and cooked your food. Yeah. That's the topic. I'm going to bring let's talk about what happens if you're in a vegetative state. I know if it was me, I'd say, hey, unplug me, don't waste all that money time and resource stand over my bad crying. Right. Let me go. Well, I kind of hope give me a good healthy sponge bath. Yeah. And let me go. That's right. That's right. Simple as that Boone. Feed me my last meal, and it sounds like it sounds like she was she I don't know her age. We should we should find that out Elissa her age because she apparently was in some sort of near drowning incident. And that's why she's in the vegetative state. And maybe maybe maybe a young person. Yeah. Well, rough deal all the way round. And what's what's the charge? Is it aggravated rape? Oh, that's right. That is rape. Obviously this was sex without any kind of consent whatsoever. Yeah. Unless it's some kind of immaculate conception. And I just don't think that's the case. I don't think that happens. I don't think that is the case it is eight forty two here on the Totta Don show, you could jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to five hundred to a dark place, man. Yeah. Well, it's I think it's a valid question. It is why what was your question. My question was why would you keep somebody on life support? Who's in a vegetative state has been for fourteen years? I are they holding out hope maybe more for some kind of looker finger moved or she's she spoke. I I don't know. I can understand holding out. Hope I can. But it just seems like thank you most. I think most doctors listening what say that. She's never coming back, right? The way she was I to say or are there any cases of anybody being in a coma for that long a vegetative state? I don't think so I can't I can't think of any made for TV movie. No, I can't either. It sounds to me like we have. I it sounds me. Like, we have a nursing facility that not not only likes to impregnate those who are unconscious, but maybe lex that revenue. I bet that's what forty fifty thousand a year. Maybe more more hundred thousand dollars a year. I don't know what that cost to have that kind of constant care. I don't know. But it sure is a cash cow. Yeah. For the doctors and the nurses at that retirement center. And apparently, it was a place where somebody would get his rocks off too. You would think that if you wanted to she's twenty two years old. Oh my God. Twenty two years old. She's been in a vegetative state for fourteen years. I don't get it at all. And it seems like there would also be some kind of surveillance camera on this person is well here caught the child in that situation. Somebody's there with their every day. Right. Yeah. Is she in my other question is, and I guess the case was she must not have been showing at all. Or nobody was paying attention. Is it possible? I'm very visit impossible to be in a vegetative state. And not on life support. Maybe.
