Philadelphia's budget has lowest cash balance the city has seen in years

"Has not only canceled Philadelphia's fourth of July traditions. It's playing havoc with the city budget. Hey, y W. City Hall Bureau chief Pat Lowe reports. It's closed the fiscal year this week with the lowest fund balance in several years. The fund balance that's the amount of cash the city has on hand for unforeseen expenses is down to about $50 million a slim 1% of its total budget. That is not a great amount to have Budget director Marissa Waxman says the city's goal isto have 68% on hand. And even that is below what experts say its sound, which is 17% or two months worth of expenses. If you think about it compared to your household budget, having just 1% of your annual salary and savings puts you in a much more precarious position than if you had two months saved up the city has an extra burden and that it must get its spending plan approved by the Intergovernmental Cooperation Agency, or Pike, or it loses state funding, But Pica Has approved budgets with low cash balances before and the five year plan does project. The balance is going back to six per cent of the next few years. In addition, Waxman says, the city has built in a new fund, a reopening and recession reserve. It's set aside $80 million over the next two years that can be used in case of recession or reopening expenses. Deplete the budget. Even Mohr Hat lobe Y W. NewsRadio, Kimberly

Sound Of The River

"This time a story a story about a river a very special river. It's the river you can hear flowing in the background through a forest somewhere in New Zealand. The river you can hear is the Wanganui River. This recording was made recently by this woman. My name is heike like hope and Mima Danish audio storyteller documentary-maker Pica held a spent a lifetime making documentaries and stories in sound documentaries and stories in sound at a full of characters places events but almost always in our work there are also the sounds of nature like stories. That have this ECO. Centric quality where it's not necessarily humans that are in the middle where where there's When Nature Plays Part? I've always had since I was a kid. I've always had this feeling that nature sort of reflected itself into me I I would feel like a mountain I would feel like make I would feel like it's three and I've had since early childhood SLA very strong sensory experiences from Mater. I think sound is fluid. It spacious like nature is so there's something that's always been something about working with sound that mirrors this perception I have of the world and that mirrors may and can connect them like bay sometimes in sort of pristine moments also connect within me emotionally or as ideas. It's something that affects you when you're there. So how can you tell a story where whether it comes across where it's not just backdrop or pretty picture but it's actually a strong force a character almost in the story documentaries and stories come from very remote places very often places like the far north of Canada Greenland places all around Scandinavia and across the North Atlantic islands? But her latest project takes back to a place where she spent time growing up. I've just started working on a project. Actually it's a liar. I feel like I've been working on it for a long time of wanted to work on it and it's been on my mind. It's a project about the Wanganui River. It flows from the center of the North Island of New Zealand to the coast to the task. Mansi three hundred kilometers or so the river special to me because I grew up in New Zealand lift by this river and my family immigrated to New Zealand in the seventy s and we lived in in Wanganui which is the town that where the river flows into the sea and all trading station built by European settlers. So for me. It's it's personally special. And then I learnt that one canoeing river have gained legal status as a as a human entity which means that it has the rights and duties and liabilities of a legal person the Wanganui river now a legal person or legal entity one of the first natural places in the world to be given this sort of legal standing accepting a river as illegal person presents. Many challenges to the way we think about the world and it presents challenges to documentary-maker how can a documentary portray the river itself as a character as a person as an entity? Where do you begin? Did you know that the river is a human being to us? We've always had signed from the mountain to the say I the river as May. So how do you tell a story whether whether river is the main the center? I'm not sure how to that practically you know. How do I connect with the river and and figure out why didn't want to say

Philadelphia city government could set record this year for overtime spending

"This could be a record year for Philadelphia when it comes to over time spending a wide W. city hall bureau chief Pat low reports once the department spent in three months what it had budgeted for the entire year the report from the city's fiscal watchdog pica has a familiar ring over time spending is up and needs to be contained executive director Harvey rice says the board is concerned because it's a trend so we question whether there's good monitoring and management tools in place and all the departments rice notes the office of property assessment went through its whole over time allotment in one quarter city budget director Maria so Waxman says the office had budgeted only twenty thousand dollars and she also knows it was short staffed through the summer she says under staffing is a big overtime driver if you don't have your full complement of employee it means you're going to have to rely on extra hours from the folks you do have on staff she as wage increases are also leading to higher overtime costs but she says some overtime is planned some of our work is really seasonal where wouldn't make sense to have more full time year round staff the city has budgeted one hundred sixty six million dollars for overtime

"Boss. Let's do a quick interesting raise. Thursday PICA is a startup. Developing autonomous electric crop spraying drones and Pica has just raised an eleven million dollar seed round with participation from Y combinator and grey Croft among others. Crop spraying is actually a risky proposition. For Human Piloted Piloted Craft since craft has to execute tight repetitive maneuvers. Low to the ground in order to achieve optimum crop coverage quoting tech crunch. Pike's approach is unlike that of many in the drone industry which has tended to use multi rotorcraft for their maneuverability and easy take off and landing. But those those drones can't carry the weight and volume of pesticides and other chemicals that unfortunately need to be deployed at large scales. The craft PICA has built is more traditional resembling traditional one Cedar Crop Dusting plane but lacking the cockpit. It's driven by a trio of propellers and most of the interior is giving order payload it can carry about four hundred and fifty pounds and batteries. Of course there is also a sensing sweet and onboard computer to handle the immediate demands of automated flight. PICA can take off or land on a one hundred fifty foot stretch of flatland. So you don't have to worry about setting up a runway or wasting energy getting getting to the target area. Of course it will eventually need to swap out batteries which is part of the ground crews responsibilities now also be designing the overall course for the craft though the actual flight path and moment to moment decisions are handled by the flight computer. All this means the plane apparently called the egret can spray about one hundred acres per hour about the.

"I've read the specs about it. I thought this is a move. This is sort of an incremental move on Panasonic side. And this is not me speaking from any internal knowledge or anything, but sort of a move to get to standardize on that twenty megapixel sensor. Right. So this is a GED five essentially with with a couple of polishing polishing bits on there. But they put the, the bigger sensor in there, so they can move away from sixteen mega pixels across the line. Do you is there any logic to that? He think I think there is logic to that. And I think twenty mega pixels, where both Panasonic and Olympics need to be on there. Microprobe thirds. The image quality is fantastic at twenty mega pixels. Eight they know how to process of, you know, the data that comes off those centers into really, really good-looking files and twenty mega pixels of very usable size. I rarely need anything more than that. So I think, yeah, I think that has a lot to do with that. And I, I don't like shooting with sixteen mega pixels anymore. Still have a couple of favorite cameras that shoot at sixteen but almost everything I'm shitting with is that twenty or twenty four mega pixels. Yeah. Yeah. Me too, for the most part except for this camera. That I'm on right now. So this is this is the G H four believe it's still sixteen that was still sixteen pixels, right? Yeah. For video though. I mean yeah. It's fine. Yeah. It's fine. It sits on the tripod. I give it lots of light. It's, it's very happy. But, but along those lines, though, the four megapixel difference between sixteen and twenty. Eighty the difference for you as that market. It's that evident that you, can you can like, what are the main differences, as low light performance, as it noise? So what would you say? You know what it is? It, it gives me a little bit more room to crop. I mean, that's what I like. I like pick. Pica's. I have to be careful, I tend to want to shoot exactly. I wanna frame it perfectly in the camera in a lot of my clients discourage me from doing that, 'cause they go, well, the, the art directors gonna wanna little extra room or little extra elbow room. You know, the put some type here to do this, or we gotta fit in, in a weird format. So a lot of times for my client work, especially after shoot a little bit wider than I want to. But if they end up not needing that extra space in, I like to be able to crop it back to the way that I saw it in still have a nice size file and just the difference between sixteen and twenty for me allows me to crop a little bit and still have a very, a very nice file. That's the biggest reason for me. You Yeah. know. Love it. So I'm I'm also. Well, I have you here. Oh in this, I promise you, can we can this be over like, right? Are you kidding for thirds? I talking about. We'll give. Well, I wanna talk I wanna I wanna talk a little bit more about Olympics. So you know, I was looking at the their current lineup. Those guys aren't playing around. I mean like you were you're saying, they're, they're different in the in, in terms of microphone thirds in the whole aesthetic that they go after but looking at the specs on their top in cameras. Those things are beasts. There beast and your you said, one of your walk around cameras. Is the what it's one of those top in cameras, right? Yeah. I like the and one Mark to I I, I don't understand why the AM one Mark to isn't just like killing it in the marketplace by really for, for the price of that camera. And what a delivers it is it is a crazy camera. And then what, what makes it crazy? What are you, what do you love about it in particular?

Why Do Some People Eat Dirt?

Why Do Some People Eat Dirt?

"Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Von here in gas stations and flea markets. All around the southeastern United States, you can find packets or boxes containing crumbles whiteclay in Kenya. You can buy reddish dirt on the street formed into little pellets that look like baby carrots in Uganda. You can buy Yankee doodle brands dirt at the grocery store, a website called earth's. Klay store sells Klay from all over the world and ships them right to your home. But what are you supposed to do with it? When it gets to you. Well, you eat it. You might have a vague sense that you've heard of people eating dirt before pregnant women. Maybe pica is the overarching term for craving and eating things that are not food in the sixth century, see the physician Flavius Asia's noticed people sticking nonfood items in their mouths the way that Magpies pica in Latin pick up random objects in their beaks e figured these people had entirely indiscriminate appetites for just any old thing and termed the behavior after the magpie. It turns out pica is kind of misnomer because pica cravings are actually very specific though. According to the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders or DSM. It includes a range of behaviors some people crave paperclips, batteries or coins. These potentially dangerous cravings are considered by the DSM to be actual disorders. But pica can also include cravings for Ross starch that's amylase g ice, that's pathogen and dirt. That's geology. Geology is one form of pica found an almost every country in the world. We spoke with Sarah young assistant, professor in the department of anthropology at Northwestern University. She said I was surprised when I first saw it. I was studying pregnant women nog Raphy in Zanzibar. And I asked a woman what she ate when she's pregnant, and incidentally, she said every day, I take earth from this wall and eat it. I was just learning. Sahelian was pretty good at it. But I really didn't think I was understanding correctly. My research assistant was like, yeah. You heard right. Young ended up writing her PHD dissertation on geology and winning the Margaret Mead award in twenty thirteen for her book craving earth, which detailed her research about geology practices worldwide in her research. Young tracked down medical literature historical texts research on animal behavior soil science in parasitology and came to the conclusion that there are four possible explanations. As to why people eat dirt. The most common longest running take on geology is that there's no good reason for it that it's a pathology. It's an aspirin behavior of some unknown origin, young explained, the racism sexism and classism behind that simplistic, take, quote, it's the women they know not what they do explanation. It was basically white men writing about this for the past few hundred years, and it was dismissed as abberant we can refute this. There are so many species of animals that go to great risk to get clan. Charcoal like the coldest monkey that steals charcoal from villagers, but even so we know very little about geology because for centuries. Scientists were stubbornly lacking curiosity about it. When scientists did start looking into it, the first hypothesis they came up with to explain why hundreds of thousands of people worldwide craven eat dirt is that. There must be something useful in the clay micronutrients of some kind young said the mother nature's multivitamin explanation is a really intuitive one. But. Fortunately, it doesn't really shake out for starters. Although the Klay her study participants in Zanzibar were eating was tinged with red indicating iron content investigations into whether that iron could be absorbed and used by the body came up empty, plus according to young people generally prefer whiter Klay. If you give geologist to the option of snacking on Georgia, white Kaelin or the reddish clay found on men's bar. They'll almost always pick the white Kaelin, which does not contain iron. So we turn to another hypothesis could hurt provide protection from germs the explanation that eating dirt somehow an immune system boost might not make sense on the surface. After all we're supposed to stay away from dirt wash our hands cleaner, close take off our shoes when we enter the house, but clay face masks can draw germs and oils and dead cells from your skin, and they're made of dirt. Right. According to young eating clay might collect stuff inside of the gut similar to how a mud mask collect stuff from your face. But why would somebody need an intestinal mud mask? The answer is protection from pathogens and harmful compounds many harmful microorganisms and compounds can enter your body via the things you eat. You digest the food and it's absorbed through the wall of your intestine and into your bloodstream, but lots of potentially harmful stuff can get to his in this way to Klay may stimulate the mucous membranes on the surface of your guts to create more mucus, thus forming a sort of protective barrier against those pathogens and compounds young said, it can also bind with whatever harmful thing you're eating for example, in the Andes people eat wild potatoes, which contain these toxic chemicals called glencoe alkaloids. But after they dip the potatoes in clay, they become safe to eat. But while eating clay might protect from pathogens and harmful chemicals, which is especially important in pregnant women. There's something of Goldilocks principle at play here. You want to shield yourself from the harmful stuff, but you also don't want to protect yourself from the nutrients you need, for example, if you eat a steak that's full of both bioavailable iron and pathogens. But you eat clay at the same time. The iron could also become bound by the clay and wouldn't be absorbed by your gut, although the claim might be protecting you from pathogens to some extent. It's also preventing you from absorbing the nutrients the fourth hypothesis for why people eat dirt or clay is that it might help nausea vomiting and diarrhea by coating stomach after all a number of anti-diarrhea treatments.

Secondhand Marijuana Exposure Common in Kids

"Talking about marijuana all of the new questions and issues that are popping up as attitudes and laws are changing at a rapid pace. I think there are some idea out there that because we're legalizing it. It means that it faith when we we really don't know. That's the case. That's Karen Wilson. She's a professor of pediatrics at the Icahn school of medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. She's been researching the health impacts of secondhand tobacco smoke on children for years. We noticed that more and more parents were saying, oh, no, I don't smoke tobacco anymore just marijuana because it's natural. And at that point, we all realize that marijuana was becoming normalized even more so than tobacco, and we are quite concerned that as we moved into legalization that would mean that more children would be exposed to second hand marijuana smoke. Karen says at this point we still don't know very much about the health impacts of second hand marijuana smoke on chill. Children does it irritate their lungs. Could it affect issues like asthma in one study? She found almost half of children whose parents smoke marijuana tested positive for lower levels of THC and some of those kids would have tested positive in a drug test. And what does that mean does that mean that they felt the psychoactive effects of marijuana? Or does it just mean that they were in the presence of it? It just means they were in the presence of it. We really don't know anything about how they are experiencing this. We don't know if children are more susceptible to the influences, or maybe they're less susceptible to the influences. There is no data on that part of what has made this difficult is that in many cases being exposed to marijuana smoke is still reportable to child protective services, and so doing research and being able to identify families where this is occurring can. Can be really problematic and in all of the cases when we've studied this. We've done this anonymously. So we can't go back and link those results with any specific patient, which makes it much much harder to do the kind of long term follow up studies that we would need to do to be able to understand the true effects of this children. Karen Wilson is a professor of pediatrics at the Icahn school of medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Medical marijuana is becoming so much more available, but many of the ground rules are still unclear who benefits from it who should take it. And for what does it have a role at all in pediatrics back in two thousand nine Marie Myung Oakley noticed a change in her son. He has autism and his tantrums suddenly started to escalate after he turned nine he was having a lot of violence. He was hitting people. He was hitting himself. He would be destructive in her house. He destroyed a lot of things, you know, towel bars were bent walls had dents in. And he also most disturbingly started to eat his clothing. This is an eating disorder called pica where people eat things that are not food. Jason's paiko was so severe.

"pica" Discussed on Tumble: A Science Podcast for Kids

"Tumble podcasts dot com. And if you like our show, leave us a review on itunes. We really appreciate it. And we love to hear what you say about the. Show in tune in next time for more stories of science discovery. Hi, I'm Lindsay, and I'm Morschel. Welcome to tumble the show where we explore stories of science discovery. We're taking you to pica town won't you take me to pica. Pike is will be your new favorite animal, if they're not already there like chipmunks, but somehow cuter they're helping scientists study climate change will meet one Bica scientists who turn to natural disaster into an important discovery. So, you know, Pika chew from Pok Mon. But isn't this podcast about science for kids? Not cartoons for kids. Hold on. It's relevant because pica 's the animal were talking about today are the inspiration for Pika chew. Do they go pick up in shoot lightning? Bolts. No. But they do sound like this. Pica live in mountainous areas in parts of Asia, eastern, Europe and western North America. In Salem, Oregon eighth graders at the Jane Goodall environmental middle school study pica 's in their conservation, biology class, Vanessa Kellen and Caroline gave us a few quick pike affects pie goes live on rocky slopes called calluses pike is like to walk in hop in meet win the big rocks. I love about is there kind of small in Q. And they also have very weird colored the temperature where they don't like really hot temperature or really cold. With climate change. Scientists are worried about the snowpacks that pike is us in the winter. So I'm picking up a pretty strong message here pikers live in the mountains. They're cute. But they're sensitive to climate change. Exactly. That's why the class has been helping a scientist named play Kajo collect data to study pikers in their area. What a crazy coincidence with her name that she studies focus. Well, her real name is Johanna Varner. She got the nickname after she started studying pica 's so we're going to learn about her research, but first let's find out how one becomes pica. Anyone Jim Tom you could be pica Marshall. Well, I actually did not plan to become a pica ecologist. I actually studied for five years as an engineer after Johanna graduated from university. She knew she didn't really want to become an engineer. So she worked at a bakery, and then traveled across the world trying to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. Then one day she picked up a newspaper and founder answer. And I read this newspaper article about Pikis, and in the newspaper article they had interviewed a woman who had studied them for her PHD. This woman was pica scientists in Johanna suddenly new that's what she wanted to be too. I thought wait a minute. There are these people called ecologists, and they go camping and hiking, and they watch the pike. And I love pike is to Hannah immediately wrote an Email to the pike scientists it basically went like this, dear Dr Terry, my name's Joe, and I really liked pike. And I would like to become FICO biologist. And I'm wondering what I should do the pica. Scientists wrote back and said Johanna could come work with her after two years of training. Joe Hannah decided to go to school to get a PHD which meant that. She would be a pica scientists. Okay. So who doesn't want to spend time with adorable animals with rest of their lives. But what does that mean? What do you even do cuddle? Do you test? Cuddling features. Potentially. We'll like any kind of science you ask questions create hypotheses and setup experiments Johannes favorite part is getting out into the mountains of the Pacific northwest in North America to observe pica. That's what she calls field work when we're doing filled work. We typically have really early mornings..

"I'm just going to say Jim his name is Jim and the three guys I'm telling you about that. I met through you last year gyms winter pica's, Mike because hit reminds him of day j- trajectory in genetics versus millennials now says I'm not quite sure what trajectory means. I'm not sure what that means. But that's who his pick is that he likes John Hennigan lives. John hearing about all gyms takes we already have established. He has bad take that he said that he was getting nauseous listening to you. Why do we care with Kim? But but so so this is what they could. So cool femi- getting mad that it made him sick to listen to me. I thought I'm going to turn this around your out, you know, make this a good thing. And so he likes John Hennigan because Jim was a wrestling known in high school. So that's who he likes. But he's picking Mike to win. Now. The next guy. This is going to be quick the next guy I met because he had said there was a list of girls or people that that somebody wanted to save for second chances. Josh wrote on Twitter that under no circumstances this. Hey, you wanna say me out there on second chances again? Absolutely not. And I thought to myself. Okay. I'm gonna send him a message because we weren't Xavier. So I sent him a message and I'm like, Josh, Josh, Josh, I totally get that. You don't want to say meals second chances. I totally get this. But this other girl, you don't wanna see either is like awesome. How could you not want to see her so long story getting longer right friends now, and it's crazy? Well, okay, fever, really different people. I think you you're onto something here. Because I think that this is why you are a really good survivor player. And I think that you know, the ability to work with. People that you don't necessarily get along with and especially online because this is a new area for all of us. I think it's easier to flip a hater around. Then somebody who doesn't care because there's there's so charged up that sometimes like the person that's the meanest to you on the internet. If you just sort of say hi to them and don't like come back, inflame them. And you know, make a joke about it. Sometimes they turn around. And then they're your biggest lover, then it, it's it's true. But we like these two guys we learn to accept our differences. And it's, but I've learned a lot for them. But just again, let me just say this. So Josh is winner pick. He says is Nick Nick has the winters edit that's not necessarily who he wants to see win. But that's really thinks will win. He is also Josh is also pulling for John a little bit because he wants to expose the man behind the character. Okay. And then this last and this. This is my last one t-bird to talk about napalm Natalie soon. Okay. So so let me just tell you about this never hit Nippon badly. So in remember when we did the living survivor hashtag live live in is the one that won the slant because they had the best limited survivor story at the time. So of course in his pit winter pick is Elizabeth are so basically when a few lose a few. But my point is if you hear something negative, don't take it personal. We're all just passionate about survivor, so Napon Natalie. Also, say funny t-bird I wanted to also say if people if people didn't like this segment when you were talking about what all these other people's winner picks were they should write to you and say, they didn't like it. And then you'll turn them around. And then you'll get their winter picks. I want to hear their winter picking lots. Now, these guys these people they just named that I told you aren't necessarily who I think will win..
