California, beleaguered by earlier storms, gets fresh snow
"A powerful weather system could affect the lower 48 states. California continues to be battered by fierce weather with fresh snow falling in the mountains, and even cold temperatures in the San Francisco Bay and elsewhere, but national weather service meteorologist David Roth says another storm is expected to target all 48 lower states, and the precipitation you get depends on where you live in relation to a warm front. If you're near and just north of the warm front, you'd be talking about heavy rainfall. If you're far enough to the north of the warm front and the cold air, yeah, you'd be talking about freezing rain and snow. And in the west, since it's a cold enough system, there'll be snow. That means at least a foot of snow for northern Arizona, southern Utah, and southern Colorado. I'm Donna water

Eyes And Ears Everywhere: The Russian Spies Among Us
"Also in The Washington Post this morning in the wake of the Ukraine war. The U.S. and allies are hunting down Russian spies. You know, you wonder what the intelligence analyst in Richmond, who was hunting down traditional Roman Catholics at attending Latin mass, might have been doing if they were hunting down Russian spies. Over the past year, as western governments have ramped up weapons deliveries to Ukraine and economic sanctions against Moscow, the post reports. U.S. and European security services have been waging a parallel visible campaign to cripple Russian spy network. The German case detailed above, which also involved the arrest of the senior official in the BND, Germany's foreign intelligence service, followed roll ups of suspected Russian operatives in Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Poland and Slovenia. 400 suspected Russian intelligence agents, many of them with diplomatic cover expelled.

But the chemical spiel collision in Ohio is I'm very concerned, right? They know exactly what chemicals were on that train. They know exactly what chemicals were on their train. I don't know if it's because they don't want to scare people or because they're disingenuous. They won't explain what chemicals are on that train. And what will it do to you? If you get direct exposure from those chemicals burning into the atmosphere, for instance, you have plastic just sitting on the table. It's not going to really hurt you. If you begin to burn plastic and you inhale that, the fumes from burnt plastic can really mess you up for a very long time. Same thing with tobacco, same thing with any other thing that you burn into the atmosphere. The burnt version of it, the combust version of it is very different than the chemical stable chemical form of it, which would be liquid form or power form or whatever form they have it in. Once you start burning it, that can be detrimental and it gets into the sky and it just don't somehow dissipate. It's going to come down in the form of, you know, when the weather turns, it's going to come down in the form of rain. Some of the particles are going to just, you know, I would argue, the particles would drop back down to earth.

Mark 10: 35–45: An Ill-Timed Request
"It's not unusual that people today are interested in these same things. They're interested in a kind of gospel that offers all the upside and none of the downside. But such a gospel is neither true to what Jesus is proclaiming as we're about to see. Nor is it true to human experience. No, Jesus says, let me tell you what it means. For me to go. And let me tell you what it means for you to follow. And then look at these fellows. It's quite incredible, isn't it? And then James and John, the sons of zebedee, from the fishing business, they came to him and teacher, they said, we want you to do for us whatever we ask. However, he was going to accomplish it. They recognized that somehow or another. He was going to introduce the messianic age. By the time the resurrection has taken place and before Pentecost, you will remember in 8 chapter one, it is these same disciples who come to Jesus and ask him the question, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel? When does the good stuff start? Jesus, when do we get all the good business? You're going to rain on David's throne forever and forever. We understand that part. And that's why Jesus we want you to do for us whatever we ask. Well, what do you want me to do for you, he asked? Well, they said we'd like to get our reservation in for our seats. It's never too soon to reserve good seats. Jesus is talking about suffering. They're talking about status. They had enjoyed privileges to this point, hadn't they? The particular privilege of the transfiguration. Peter James and John taken by Jesus into a unique and wonderful opportunity. Perhaps that it made them think that they were deserving of such experiences. When God draws us close and introduces us to the wonders of his love, it's not because we're deserving of it. It's an indication of his amazing grace. But maybe somehow or another, they said, you know, there's a reason why he took us up on the mountain of transfiguration. We are the key guys. So why don't we just go ahead and ask him and see if we can't make sure our seats are reserved. One on the right one on the left. That would be nice Jesus. If you could do that for us.

There they post images of themselves dressed in both men's and women's versions of the same outfits.

I'm just gonna be me and kind of come out as me. And that doesn't just go for gender. That goes for sexual orientation as well. So y'all without further ado, let's.

Like it's there. Are things there that you know that. Kinda get okay if you're going to introduce this. There needs to be a payoff and for me as a viewer. It gets frustrating that there isn't the payoff that you you know you go to great length to set something up and then you don't do that and it. Just i think it feels more like a letdown because of that. So that's why you. That's what i think. I felt cheated new.

You know just to tidy everything up all as long as everything's all like addressed.

Do wonder are you hearing more Trouble for residents business owners. Things like flooding in basements and other kind of physical infrastructure problems that affect families in the economy. You know not not anymore than normal Probably the biggest impact has been the number tree limbs and trees down. That's kept our forestry department fairly busy keeping things open especially when we got that real intense rain on saturday. A as was mentioned with the meteorologist of the ground is so wet. That when you get that heavy rain it doesn't have the capability to kinda soak it up. in a way that normally does so we're seeing the threshold of flooding. Be a little less than normal and we do get some situational flooding some of our low lying areas which can certainly Impact traffic in the flow of traffic. But nothing too severe at least so far. So let's look positive for a minute. Is there something coming up in western over the summer that you're really looking forward to what we're certainly looking forward to the rest of the season the so much pent up demand for that We are having a two week. Engagement on the worcester common with hanover. Theater's doing two weeks of Julius caesar On the common and outdoor performance and We're hoping that we'll get all of those performances in.

I mean jim was the hottest june on record. July going to be one of if not the wettest july on record the odds are that will have a more typical August around here with more in the way of sunshine. Unless rain it's still does however look somewhat unsettled in the longer range. I don't see certainly we're not gonna community drought patterns or anything like that and We are going to see a return with some shower activity even next week so my goal is to have you back in august to declare that it is the most normal list august on record. I would love it. Yeah i would love it. I'd love him good sleeping nights just normal eighty degree weather lower humidity. Some humidity good beach weather kind of something for everybody. Fingers crossed that steve epstein. Wbz our meteorologist. Dave thanks you're welcome all right. Let's turn now to ed augustus. The city manager for worcester whereas we said a few minutes ago. They have already seen the wettest july ever on record and we have several days to go. Add welcome back radio boston. Thanks for having me so this weighing on you this rain. How are you holding up. Yeah we're doing. All things considered the a normal july for us is about four inches of rain and were already almost thirteen inches of rain as you mentioned still with over a week ago so We are a little waterlogged here in wooster is anything changing and how you do your job or the demands on the city public works etc as a result of what sounds like three times the amount of normal july rain so far. Yeah we had a very busy weekend We had about fifty different broken limbs and trees down blocking sidewalks and streets with some of the intense rain. We got saturday You know some of our lower lying areas in the city Flooded we had a number of vehicles that needed to be kinda rescued and towed out of You know areas that were flooded out and that can be really dangerous if somebody gets trapped in their car And so yeah. It's been a busy weekend for our first responders infrared dpw crews and we're hopeful that The rain coming wednesday Won't challenge us again in that that same way. So kinda thinking about the bigger picture at we talked with you in november about worcester having the potential to be an interesting case.

"This is radio boston. I'm john daring. It rained today again and all this rain is starting to take a toll for example in worcester. It's already the wettest. July the city has ever seen and we have eleven days to go in july by the way. So we start the week and the hour looking at the implications of this precipitation whether it's crashing long awaited summer plans or it's flooding basements or helping cause a shellfishing ban across most of massachusetts. Let's start out by talking about the weather itself checking in with. Wbz you are meteorologist dave epstein for look at when we might finally dry out and what kind of impact. All this rain is having dave. Welcome back thank you very much. Good to be here good to have you. It is not your fault but it is hard not to say to you dave. Come on hey you know. i'm. I'm suffering this with everybody else i have. I was walking around this morning. And i've got plants in the garden. That are doing things that. I've never seen them doing before. And it's not all good so any sun in our future let alone whole day of sun tomorrow looks actually pretty good. I think it's actually a beach day. In the middle of all of this temperatures will be up near ninety degrees. we should see mostly sunny skies. I can't rule out an evening thunderstorm but beach time. It should be a really nice day. you know. It's just one of those hot and humid dates that we have had so few of this month. So one of my favorite questions is how bad it just. How unprecedented is all of this rain. We've talked about worcester having the wettest july. They've ever had we discussed before how. We had the wettest first week in july over one hundred years. A here in boston so okay. Several days have passed since then. How bad is this relatively speaking. And after great question. Because i think sometimes our perspective on these things can get a little bit skewed and so it's helpful to look back at our records which go back to eighteen seventy two and if you look at the record since eighteen seventy two. There's a few things that stand out. Number one is. Today is our sixteenth day this month with measurable precipitation now. The most number days with any measurable precipitation is april. Twenty nineteen twenty one. So we're getting close to that and we're probably going to have more showers As we head for wednesday so that's another day as you mentioned we still have over week left in the month so it's possible that not only just july end up as one of the wettest. July's on record. But it's also the frequency of the rain that's really unusual Eighteen is the most number of days in july. We've ever had rain and we will get close to if not surpassed that kind of like a record. You don't want to root for that..

"Von. First time shortwave reporter. We're talking geos spin which we associate with the smell of fresh rain fresh oil and you said it comes from a bacteria yet it primarily comes from a big group of bacteria called tina may cds and the men in soil mostly comes from a single genus called streptomycetes streptomycetes. I love that keep going. Streptomycetes have evolved an uncommon survival strategy for bacteria. I mean you're a microbiologist. Indeed what bacteria do when conditions are good. When they're happy well it went. Bacteria are happy. They make more bacteria that's their whole vibe. So one cell splits into two. It's called binary fission right and if you're a type of bacterium that can swim sort of wiggle around before you divide you'll maybe try to situate yourself somewhere with a lot of good food for your offspring but for most of its lifetime. Streptomycetes isn't mobile. So if it's in a location with not a lot of food or if it starving it has to do something else to be sure. Its offspring have a good shot at survival. This bacterium is actually very weird. That's mahmoud abbas. He's a researcher. At university of california san diego and he worked on the same study as close as the starves to make sure that is offering will survive it start to produce doorman cells and these doorman sales can withstand dryness Lack of food and then once the environment is favorable so they have food they have water. They can grow again dormant cells. Okay that that means. We're talking bacterial spores. Which is very exciting. Basically win some. Bacteria are stressed they can produce these tough little cells called spores and those can withstand things that normal bacterial cells probably couldn't survive

I think they should be required to admit when it doesn't work like like i if you're going to call him elected official you have to you off when it if it doesn't if the rains don't come after that you have to like go on television and say well guess god doesn't want this so we have to do some shit and frankly i wonder if that's what he's doing i wonder if he's playing the utah politics game of. Maybe i can rally them. Maybe i can marshal them. If i say i started with magic. We'd you ride the magic okay. I didn't know okay That's interesting because my thought was more along the lines of a and it has the same lead in that we had to this conversation. Which is you can't get these people to listen to government on anything right So can i get them at least two to think about the fact that we're in a drought and to acknowledge that drought. Yeah by just doing prayer right then because there are now now now they've accepted. There's a drought. And there's there's something that we have to do about it. All he got from them. And yeah i you get them to buy in on their terms. And then as time progresses it's a little bit more what you're saying without the full acknowledgement. It's like so now when you're asking them. Hey you know like remember that thing that we had to pray for for a whole weekend right lake. We also in addition to that need to maybe water our lawns. Less right. 'cause you prayed you admit it. It's real exactly. You admitted it so now we all have to thing. Yeah and i'm wondering if there isn't some psychology of about sort of the kind of this kind of specific religious mind whereas if you if you can if you go at them i with hey these are the things that we need you to do from a civically minded perspective right. They will never fucking do it right because they do. Not think that way. I'm drinking extra water. You liberal cock. Here's how i'm yeah that's how you own the lib tards right right exactly.

If it turns out that he then you know in a week and a half or two weeks says here are the steps. We need to take I might be i'm Interesting is this how you manipulate religious people that it would be deeply sad But so brilliant. Yeah because yeah because they want to use magic that this is the problem everybody wants magical thinking to be the solution to get it. We all would rather magic. Be the the solution to our problems rather than us having to take concrete steps that mildly inconvenience our lives and maybe make our lawns. Look bad but jesus fucking christ man. Yeah i think take some steps. Yeah alright well. That'll be interesting to watch. We'll let you guys know. If if he does actually start taking steps fairly soon he will. And i think he would and i. That's gonna be proof for me right like because we have to take the has to start citing with concrete steps at some point right. You'd think so it's a it's a it's a an emergency. Yeah i i think though the confirmation for me would be if you see utahns starting to actually behave in on this issue and sort of collective and and community sort of way. Yeah that would be amazing. Because yeah i don't know what else is going to get through to some people. We have really really poor opinion of our fellow residents here it's well earned opinion.
