"Lock in today still historically low rates go to Andrew and Todd dot com. That's Andrew and Todd dot com. Okay. Y'all are yins as they say in Pittsburgh? There was no damage the Democrats can do apparently. That's the sad take from yesterday. I'm not sad. Should all read my happiness book. There's a big chapter there and not having expectations in life. When you don't have expectations, you can't get disappointed. And disappointment is a very big form of gratuitous, unhappiness. The personal level not to have expectations and on the macro level. That's one of the keys to wisdom to understand. The good is the exceptional this country has been exceptional. The left is ensuring that it not remain exceptional. In fact, it's making it exceptionally bad in some ways, the transgender issue. And the staggering confusion of young people. There's no such thing as binary sexual identity. One of the sickest ideas to have ever been developed. How come no doctors ever said this before, let's say, ten, 15 years ago. Why did the entire scientific community believe that human beings were either male or female? How did this happen? Have we made a new scientific discovery? No, it's a gigantic lie. How do you know it's a lie? A was never known before. And B, because they suppress anyone who says otherwise. It is one of the most important little insights or big insights I've ever come to. How do you know who's lying? Those who suppress dissent. It's big, it's huge. It explains it's the smoking gun of the left. We don't suppress the synth because we don't care if you descend from us. If we tell the truth, you could dissent all you like. If you lie, you don't allow dissent. Pittsburgh, city, I'm a big fan of Alvin and Pittsburgh, hello. Hey, Dennis. Hi. Boy. I've taken your view on life in terms of getting clarity over agreement. Over agreement. Thank you. Doctor Oz couldn't of done a better job of running a campaign in explaining what he was running on and neither did fetterman. He made it clear how he was running and what he was representing. And I'm in shock. That he won this. In shock, I love Pittsburgh. I have established businesses here and it's just did he win Pittsburgh? I didn't see if he won Pittsburgh. I woke up this morning and saw that he won overall, didn't want to read anything else. So you were shocked that's very interesting. Yes. And this isn't anything against him, but the debate alone..

"Executive of our weekly quiz. He's a graphic artist who's working to be sent on ball fields all across America all around the world, or you can go to his website, Tom bradham dot com. Todd, how are you doing this week? I'm doing pretty well buster, how are you? I'm doing great. I just want to take a moment. You know, every week, as we get ready for the phantom franchise, part of your appearance on the show, I get to read through the history that you send and something you're going to present and today you're going to be talking about the Denver pirates, but man, you have done such a great job with this this week. And I'm curious about your process in putting together all this information for the fan of franchises that you've done every week. Well, I appreciate that buster and basically what happened was we agreed to this particular topic sometime in the winter. And I started doing research. And there are some potential franchise moves that come to immediate mind because they're within our collective memory, but then you start to go down the rabbit hole into research and utilizing the always great newspapers dot com and finding the fact that the Boston braves were looking to move to Montreal in the 1930s. Well, looking at January, February 1935, what was the story with this? So basically like so many research assignments, one thing leads to another, your mind kind of goes into these places that you never imagined them going and you look at larger things and that's one of the subtopics for today. And then what's going to happen is I kind of distill this down into bite sized pieces a couple of paragraphs for the purposes of this presentation. And here we go. We're going to have somewhere on the order of 30 of these when we're all said and done. Yeah, we feel like every year when you put together your theme for the year that it's almost like you're generating a book. Like if you wanted to, you could do a fan of franchise book. The information that you got, and I just want to say, I just love it every week. Well, I appreciate that buster. And that's it. It's kind of like a 30 little chapters to a small book that someday could be extended, but first things first. Yeah, Sarah Taylor, you guys want to chime in too? That Todd's a beautiful human, and he's an amazing job with these. I got out of bed thinking that this morning. But Todd, I have a special relationship. We're really lucky, Sarah. It's true. It's true. Of course. I second everything Taylor said. Wait, but not me. Thanks a lot, Sarah. Well, I'm ready to beat you in this week's quiz after we get the fan of franchise. All right, so here we go. Buster and all. The Pittsburgh pirates were afflicted by a sea of troubles in 1985. Pittsburgh's economy was in deep trouble. Its population was declining, and its baseball fans were very, very unhappy. Metz first baseman Keith Hernandez called three river stadium quote a morgue. Bucks third baseman Bill madlock told Sports Illustrated, you don't mind getting booed on the road, but it really hurts at home. The other day, infielder Jim Morrison got hit by a pitch and the fans cheered. Morrison himself called the fans quote miserable people in comments to The New York Times, adding, this is a miserable environment to play baseball. There were 31,000 fans here today, and 26,000 were booing for the cubs, or excuse me, rooting for the cubs, and 5000 were cheering for us. My opinion is that it's time for the team to move. This club was awful, and it was bleeding money, attendance was abysmal, and then there were the Pittsburgh drug trials, which involved cocaine use by a bunch of major league players, including several pirates, and even the team's mascot, the pirate's parrot. In June, 1985, pirates owner Dan gelber told the Denver post that he would soon begin talks on a possible sale of the club to a Denver group who would move the club out of the steel city, his home since 1887. That group, the owners of the minor league Denver zephyrs, they were ready to bring Major League Baseball to mile high stadium, which had drawn 70,000 fans to two exhibition games that spring. The pirates were bound by a lease that called for them to play at three river stadium through the 2011 season and Pittsburgh city officials dug in for a fight. MLB commissioner Peter huber off publicly stated that he would not approve a sale that included a move negotiations commenced with a group of specific minded Pittsburgh individuals and corporations, which included Westinghouse, U.S. steel corporation, Mellon bank, and Carnegie Mellon university. They agreed to buy the club in October 1985, thus saving the team for Pittsburgh. Denver obtained an expansion franchise, the rockies who would begin play in 1993. But today buster, we contemplate a world, which might have included the Denver pirates, who are this week's phantom franchise. As always, fascinating history, but I did get stuck with the image of a professional mascot doing cocaine. Can you imagine how much TMZ would pay for security cam video in 2022 of a mascot doing cocaine behind the scenes at a ballpark Todd? I can't even imagine and buster you probably recall this whole this scandal, right? Very large scandal. And it dug down into affected a lot of number of clubs, but the idea of the pirate parrot being involved with this. Even then was shocking. Today, the delivery would be unimaginable. Yeah, I really hope that he at least took the mascot uniform off. The costume off before he was doing something. That, yeah, the visual of that in my mind is like, holy crow. Anyway. Let's get to this week's quiz. Well, this is actually perfect. It's a great segue because this is a mascot question. So as a reminder, buster would ten Sarah with 6 and Taylor, with 5 here, so time to make it happen. September is looming. One of these was never an official mascot for the New York mets. Was it a lady met? Was it B, a live beagle named Homer? Was it C, a subway conductor cat named Casey? Or was it D, a live mule named metal? Never an official mets mascot, lady met a big old named Homer, a subway conductor cat named Casey, or a live mule named metal. Wow. Taylor, I'll let you go first. I, for one, I'm really excited about which of these Todd made up himself. I'm gonna go with the conductor cat, which I am, I want to be real, but I'm also hoping it's not. Yeah, that's what I think. Sarah, what do you got?

"Guide me. Now, how did that happen in both of your lives, you've been on the program before, but for people who don't know your stories about coming to faith or when did the penny drop for each of you? It took me a little while. My parents, especially my mother, tried to teach me that. But as a 12 year old, 14 year old, your honor I was listening or it doesn't make sense. And my mom would tell me those things, you know, what would a profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? Make sure you're in tune with God. Just what you're saying. The creation is great. All these things are wonderful, but don't fall in love with the creation, fall in love with the creator. But it didn't hit me until I was 21. And I got to the National Football League and my coach chuck noll, who was a tremendous coach Hall of Fame coach. First thing he said to us is don't make football your whole life. It's your profession now because you're getting paid for it. But if you make it your whole life, you're going to be disappointed. And then I see all these guys and they had two Super Bowl rings when I got there, but they're saying the same thing. And hey, you got to come to Bible study. You got to come to chapel tonight. And what franchise was this? The Pittsburgh Steelers. So the Pittsburgh city, I love hearing stories like this. So here you go, you're practically a kid 21 years old. Going to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And there's a culture of some players in the Pittsburgh Steelers. They get God. And they're willing to share this with the younger players. That is pretty amazing. And for me, I'm kind of listening to my parents, but here in it it's going in and out, but now when I see these guys that I admire and I watch on TV and that's what I want to be. I want to be like them and they're saying, hey, that's great. But you better get your spiritual life together first. That had an impact on me. That changed my life at 21 years old. And that's kind of what you're talking about. What was their purpose? Yeah, they won Super Bowl rings, and they made money, but their purpose was to honor the lord. It's just so funny because the surface level is always the one that's communicated. I want to win this and I want this success and I wanted anything, well, if you ask those who had those things, if they lived for that, they're empty. It's like, okay, I got this. Now what? Now what do I do? So it's so fascinating to me that you were in that environment that these people that you looked up to who had one super bowls, right? That they said, it's not about this. It's about this. Lauren, what is your background with faith? How did this happen for you that you understood this? Well, I was blessed to raise, be raised in a Christian home, so I always knew about Jesus who went to Bible studies, went to Sunday school, went to church, faithfully, tweaked, but I didn't develop a relationship with him until it was 19 years of age. We actually had people visiting homes in the community sharing witnessing about Christ and the light went off. They came into our home and they talked about it. And I heard the gospel many times before, but it was that that time I decided I needed to make a personal relationship and I asked Jesus into my heart. And it is just been fantastic. And I just can't imagine not having a life without Christ in the center, directing my path and everything that I do. And we've been blessed to then raise our children into a relationship with Christ at an early age, so they know about Jesus. They're able to walk with him and it's just been phenomenal. But he's given me the boldness to talk about my faith and every area of life and they're just so many opportunities that God gives us the platform and I just can't imagine. I feel sorry for the people that are living worldly lives and they don't have Christ in their life. It's hard not to feel sorry, isn't it? You look at them and you think, wow, why do I know that God is real? I don't hope he's real. I used to hope he was real. And then I got to place where I said, no, I know he's real. And I would be a fool not to acknowledge him and live for him and he loves me. He's not a hard task man. I mean, when you realize all that, even the tragedies in life, even the difficulties in life, you can live completely differently than the way those who don't know those things are..

"I say this as a child of Baltimore and other city that suffers from kind of what I call an image lag. There's a lag between the reality of realities of these cities in their image tends to lag I'm thinking of Baltimore that I'm from Cleveland and Pittsburgh, cities that are actually not only livable, but really charming and beautiful in their own way, and yet maybe this is a generational thing. But I think people still think Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland, these are not places that you go as a traveler, but why not? You know, why not? You're going to find all kinds of hidden surprises that are in each of those cities I've been in the last year to give a lecture and they had a couple hours of free time in the afternoon, my hotel's right in downtown, and I've got out and I remember walking around the city just kind of wonder struck enjoying the architecture, enjoying the people watching, enjoying the welcome I received, and there was no gimmicky tourism at all around me. Right, because she went to a boring place, so have I converted you to a boring places person? You've converted me to remember that, as you said, there are no boring places only boring travelers. If you were to sum it up, Eric, what would the fundamental skill of not being a boring traveler? A boy, that's a tough one. I would say go to a place with no expectations with your eyes wide open and with a deep willingness to be completely wrong. Of how one you thought of this place and to be surprised. I love that. To be totally wrong. To be totally wrong. It's a receptivity, which is why before I go to a place I will certainly read the history because I can't travel back in time not yet. But I will actually avoid reading contemporary accounts other travelers travel writers writing about Budapest or Moscow wherever it is..

"On climate change between 2015 and 2019, their agreement that the earth is warming, mostly caused by human activity was 100%. So the most active researchers were at a 100%. And then but you could look across the board and there's a trend of the more scientifically active, the researcher is and the more the greater level of expertise, the more closely related their work is related to global warming, the greater the percentage of them that believe in global warming. So there was a positive relationship between expertise and accepting the consensus opinion. So that's pretty, you know, that's pretty convincing evidence that there is actually a consensus. Yeah, but they couldn't get higher than a 100%, huh? Yeah. The deniers are going to push back on this, they'll find some way to dismiss the paper because no study is perfect. No research is perfect. You can always find something to complain about if you want. If you don't like the findings and you want to dismiss it, that's sort of the difference between skepticism and denial. I'll skepticism. You have to put things into context and be reasonable and fair and try to come up with what we decision about. We actually can say with what confidence intervals and deniers will just find an excuse to deny what they don't want to accept, whatever, whether it's out of proportion or reasonable or not. So anyway, I want to that's the update on the John cook consensus study ten years later, this consensus on global warming is even stronger. All right, Evan, tell us about the recent efforts to pass dark skies ordnance. Yes. We're going to talk about Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, which is a pretty cool city, I think in its own right for many reasons. But it got even cooler. Because now it's the first major city in the United States to adopt a dark skies policy regarding public light illumination. Wait, are they going to do what they did for them with a matrix when they put the dark smoke throughout the earth so that all the robots die? I mean, that's crazy. Different kind of dark sky. Oh. All right, good, good. And yeah, and the robots aren't revolting at either. Okay. All right, never mind. We're all about to revolt. The Pittsburgh city council. Unlike what bob said, they passed a new dark sky ordinance for all of the city's parks, facilities and streetlights. The office of mobility and infrastructure prepared the ordinance with support from two Carnegie Mellon university dark sky experts. Diane turn check, who is a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon university's department of physics, along with Stephen quick, who is part of the faculty at their school of architecture, the two of them helped draft the ordinance. This is the first ordinance of its kind in the country. As far as major cities go. And it aims to replace the city's 35,000 streetlights and install up to 8000 new ones. We have talked before about dark skies, various projects, care. I know you've talked a lot about it. In the past. There is the international astronomical union dark and quiet skies project who raises awareness about the need to preserve dark skies and quiet skies. There's also the international dark skies association itself, who has a lot of helpful information about what are exactly dark and quiet skies. So we have a problem with what we've done to the night sky with all of our artificial light. And it has real world impacts on health on environment on energy consumption, so many different things. Nocturnal animals have to sleep during the day, they're active at night, but light pollution will radically alter their nighttime environment by turning night basically in today. So the ecosystems are all effective. It's a huge waste of energy when it comes right down to it. For example, in an average year in the United States alone, outdoor lighting uses about 120 terawatts, hours of energy, mostly to eliminate streets and parking lots. That's has much energy that New York City goes through over the course of two years. Wow. And they can measure this wastefulness at the tune of over $3 billion and the release of 21 million tons of carbon dioxide per year. That is not a trivial amount. Street lights for those who say that it prevents accidents and crimes. There's a lot of research into that and they're saying no, that does not prevent accidents and crime, in fact, in some ways it can be worse. Glare from nighttime lighting can create hazards. Ranging from discomfort to visual disability. So there's no argument to be made there. Artificial light and I can negatively affect human health. It increases risks of obesity, depression, sleep disorders, definitely diabetes, and breast cancer, although I didn't read specifically on that one, but they say that there are research into that, our circadian rhythm is governed by the day night cycle and that has been that is certainly taken a hit with all of the nighttime lighting that we've done. Melatonin production also become suppressed, as a result of all the lighting we have been doing. Plus, just the natural beauty of the night sky. We've lost it. I mean, think about the generations of people who are now being born who have recently been born, never known the night sky as so many generations of people before had known it. So all sorts of issues and reasons to try to prevent this artificial illumination of our night sky, so many practical and frankly beautiful reasons. So what Pittsburgh is going to do is they're going to implement technology to help. Motion sensors, dimmers and timers, cooler temperature bulbs, proper shielding, you know, which directs the light down instead of up all this reduces the light pollution. And still provides all of the need for the nighttime light that we do rely on. So they're going to get rid of their 5000 Kelvin glow, blue, white, glare bulbs, in all of the lamps. They're going with the new LED lights, which are, of course, the lower temperature. And they are conforming to the standards that the international dark sky association have outlined as to what Pittsburgh is doing and what other cities frankly should be doing to move us in this direction. So thank you, Pittsburgh for being the first one and hopefully you're the first of many more cities to adopt these measures. Yeah, it really is amazing. I mean, of course, I'm partly going on memory, but even just like in the part of Connecticut where we live and we were kids, you definitely could clearly see the Milky Way and the night sky was just completely different than what it is today. There is so much low light pollution. Even in the suburbs, like we're not in a big city, just you can you can see the stars, but you can't really see like the Milky Way anymore or the level of detail that we could even 20, 30 years ago. I also remember like when we were in Australia or Christchurch, New Zealand. Yeah, or in New Zealand, we were down under, we wanted to look at the southern sky. It was hard. It was hard we had to go out of our way to find some place where we could kind of see the nighttime sky. The light pollution was so bad from any near any large town or city, you couldn't see it. Yeah, we drove a half hour, 40 minutes away from where we were just to escape the light pollution enough to be able to see what was frankly the greatest guy I've ever seen in my life. Yeah. Yeah, here in LA, I drive to like a two hour drive in order to do any sort of observing most people in LA well most big stargazing fans kind of know this spot in Fraser park, which is like two hours. And it's really only because the mountain sort of block all the cities. But yet I know a lot of people, a lot of people, and I'd be interested, you know, I bet you if we were to survey our audience, how many of you have actually seen the Milky Way, the numbers would be pretty surprising? Depressingly low. Yeah, yeah. All right, thank you, Evan. Jay, it's who's that noisy time? All right guys, last week, I played this noisy. There's a lot going on there. All right, what is it, guys? Sounds like an alarm really far away. Not like, you know, like a building alarm, like something bad happened in a big industry. Yeah, like.

They didn't want us however they did. Say it Is that they wanted. People that attended school boards that were to lively. Got out of hand And we're threatening Would be deemed domestic terrorists and And treated as such and this. This contact fired. Ben time because all of a sudden people see the attorney general of the united states saying that mom pot kettle are upset with critical race. Theory our domestic terrorists because they're upset at the local school board. Yeah you know. I mean school board meetings. I have gone with my my mother as a teenager. I have gone parents. I've had to cover them. I've told yelling. Reporters is the first place you went to learn about The is the american. You know sort of conversation about what's important in their lives is to cover a school board because they are the most intense. How but you know you're talking about your child and or traditionally school board meeting. It's either about you know something that impacts your child which by the way schools have your child more than you do after a certain age At and or the taxes. And how you know i. Is this going to impact. Where i live. And those are schools. Districts are places that draw people to live in the community and or huzzah people to flee community. If they're not doing well so schools are very and the scope are being credibly important. They can be heated. By the way i have been set so many heated school board member and and sometimes it's because the cheerleaders aren't getting budget other times. It's because the theater hasn't been finished another time. It's because the teachers been moved or principal fired more often than not. It's because a mill has been eleven has been put on the local ballot trying to get two-thirds and i let one of those once school. Boards are feisty. they have never not been feisty. Has always been feisty on there and that's a good thing. These are very important entities in our lives in school. boards have been around since the seventeenth century. I mean they have been around. They began in massachusetts since they've been part of our conversation And part of making our communities better For his wall since before we even exist as initial why dr carson finally go down to the pittsburgh school board what what motivated him to.

No school buses for the children We've we've had a problem with the superintendent who was eventually forced to resign And and so you know there have been a number of problems with with the pittsburgh city schools again. This is normal But you know it. I was very hesitant because he was unsure of of. You know how you know i. Is this going to be used as a weapon. Is someone going to sort of you know video me if i have something to say cancer or kim and i'm glad he went anyway. It's amazing to me that school boards across the united states have been shuttered for a year. Now they don't have enough buses. What do you think they were planning for year. Did not plan to reopen ever a. I'm astonished at stunning the the incompetence it's an institutionalized incompetence at school districts across america.

"A chance there. How about New York, the New York Islanders, beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games, 42. I know a lot of my, my friends in New York are very excited. They're all Islanders fans. Otherwise, I guess in New York they passionately love hockey. Like everyone. I know is either a Jets fan or a Highlanders fan. I guess the Giants don't exist cuz I know the wrong people, but I am curious, what your thoughts are on this series? I was upset, I thought maybe there was a slight chance, Pittsburgh City Garage, because something cool. They lost. What are your thoughts in this series? You know, I picked that serious to go seven, I picked Islanders and seven. I think I was kind of in the minority in that. So I'm going to, I'm going to take my win their age. The, the DNA of how about that series, went two years ago. It seemed like he played out in kind of a similar way where it seemed like no matter what would happen. The Islanders buckled down at the right time but they scored and they needed to, you know, they they pulled it out, Pittsburgh has some decisions to make I think headed into this offseason they've got you know, Asian guys. I mean, it's not it's not going to be something where, you know, sitting across, but the trading block, although some networks might start posing that question wage. Yeah I've been crazy like that but they're at this point now where a lot of their core just get a little bit older and they're going to make some choices here in the offseason. You can be curious to see what they do but when the team has, you know, that has a country like that you lose in the first round in six. It's it leaves a really sour taste in your mouth, you know, no matter the context but especially how you know, it went two years ago at the Islanders and they haven't be able to quite get right since even this year, they started up not great and the Sprint to the Finish, they didn't really well near the end of the season and it looked like they were catching fire at the right time and then it Peters out as soon as it starts. And it's, you know, here you are off. So it's, you know, weird times coming for the Penguins. I think what happened two years ago for Pittsburgh? They lost the Islanders in the playoffs swept. Wow.

You know, one of the cities that spent all that money and all those hours gathering all that data to put together a pitch that as we learned today officially went nowhere or did it from W E essay in Pittsburgh, one of Amazon's top twenty by the way, but not one of its top to marketplace's Eric embarrassed takes a look at what might be the real payoff. Am with Pittsburgh city councilwoman, Deborah grows. Then we're driving through what's known as robotics row. Apple. Facebook. An Uber are just a few of the big names in this fifteen block stretch close to downtown Pittsburgh. There's probably not a place where this many technology innovators in competition with each other our next door. Neighbors all those companies have taken up residents in the past decade or so transforming empty warehouses into offices in laps. The city didn't have to do much to court them. They came to take advantage of the area's highly skilled labor force. And bro says not much improved since the company's showed up. There's not even sidewalk space. So there's no pedestrian infrastructure. There's no safety infrastructure. There were no street lights Amazon has an office here too. But when the company announced it was looking for a second headquarters, Pittsburgh realized it was going to take a lot to learn Amazon a second time so more than four hundred people from government business in higher Ed along with a team of highly paid consultants studied every aspect of the region to prepare the three hundred page proposal for H Q to if it takes a catalyst like that to bring people together in a room to really assess what our needs are what are social needs. Are what our infrastructure needs are and how we can do better to meet them. That's not a bad thing. What did they learn the city schools? Not that great the transportation system hard to get from here to there. And when it comes to ethnic diversity the region is lacking David Rupert. Burger with the Pittsburgh reasonable alliance. Worked on the proposal we've recognized that the odds for long, but we also recognized early on that there was going to be benefit to this regardless of whether we are selected or not, and we feel like we've already won one because Pittsburgh now has a detailed and data rich profile of itself that it can use to drive improvement and since making it onto Amazon shortlist of finalists other companies have come calling, but I would call mini Amazon's like affirm a financial tech company that said last month that will set up a big office in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh was already in line for the flight, but Christina because it's hostess CEO at the Pittsburgh airport set. The timing looked good nonetheless and made it easier to court other airlines and flights Amazon gave us a great platform. Say see look, we're in contention for this and. And that was really that was a fantastic Colin card for us as some cities have learned. Sometimes just being a contender is enough. Let's go back to the nineties. United Airlines was looking to build a new maintenance facility that would create five thousand jobs the finalists were Indianapolis and Oklahoma City when Indianapolis one Oklahoma City pressed United to reveal why former mayor Mick cornet. So they finally disclosed that they had sent in some mid level executives and their spouses and ask them to spend a weekend in Oklahoma City and report back to the board of directors and Chicago. And when the board looked at that report, they just decided they couldn't imagine their employees living there. It was hard to hear. But it spurred the city to improve its downtown and outdoor space with hotels and restaurants and bring in sports teams, and those changes attracted new companies cornet says the United facility was the best thing that that didn't happen years from now some cities maybe saying.
