"raleigh north carolina" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Body before the Corona virus pandemic hit in March, There were nearly 12 million Children under the age of five, enrolled in some type of childcare nationwide. A pandemic, however, forced about half of providers to shut down at some point during the last seven months and has left one in five childcare employees about 214,000 of them out of work. As of August, a couple of their stories from Megan Lenhart, senior reporter at CNBC, make it making. What are we seeing? Bill being both parents and providers really hanging on by a thread. You would think you know, for so many months in that we would have seen some more recovery, but It turns out that child care providers operating on a very, very high operational costs and then parents being was still very afraid to send their Children back. And so enrollment really has not returned to pre pandemic levels. As of yet, explained the story of that woman you talked to in North Carolina. Who runs her own daycare center. She's just about M Theatre Savings account. Tryingto make things as safest possible from Cove it and still her enrollments way down. Dressed, so this piece was actually part of the theory called the covert economy that we're doing, and we're looking at North Carolina. So I actually interviewed Cassandra Brooks, who was amazingly generous with her time and her story, entrusting it to meet that she actually run Little Believer Academy just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina, and their two locations and She is actually incredibly her son that she is not going to be able to make payroll this month. You have to imagine as a small business owner that is probably the worst feeling in the world. She knows that these employees are relying on her. She knows that parents are relying on her. And yet she can't seem to make the math work. In fact, she's actually been operating at a loss for her. Several months Now, as you know these grants that she's been getting PPP rose. It's not like she hasn't had some support, but it's just not enough. She said. She got Two centers. There's a ones at about 40% capacity. Other 1 50 was at her. Yes, that is. It's crazy, right? I think it just should be a little bit higher at this point, especially because So many parents are actually back at work even part time in the office. Then you have school reopening at this point, and you know, several of them in the area are actually re opening for in person learning as early as this month and then almost full time in November, so it's kind of interesting. It is all coming a little bit of an intersection right now, where We have these childcare providers to have been really hang on these last couple of months. They certainly have been providing care for the essential workers. Many though, had to close, even partially and bad. Now you have people like ninja who are actually going through Positive Cove. It cases happening at the child care centre. And, of course, very, very scary for everyone involved. I mean, certainly parents I met imagine are incredibly nervous. But you won't have the staff in the teacher's incremental herself who are sitting there and they are on the front line of this. Speaking with Megan Lenhart, senior reporter at CNBC, making her pieces called parents and child care providers are still struggling as the pandemic drags on. What her parents saying about this about maybe why they're not sending their kids to these child care centers. My parents are also you know, definitely weighing some heavy decisions here, and I actually spoke with one Jessica, who was very front and she said that her father actually passed away from Cove it and it completely changed how the family looked himself about the virus and the epidemic at large. She and her husband actually have no plans to send their Children back in person in school or daycare until there's some kind of viable vaccine on a lot of parents are in that same boat. But then there's other parents, who, quite frankly Have to work and they just can't do their jobs remotely anymore. They absolutely have to have child care. And so they are sitting there and trying to find the best possible solutions for their families and trying to make it work and, of course, You know there's still coming up short. Sometimes I was talking with a Caldwell again another new residents, and she was talking about how there was just no way that they were going to be able to continue to have both her and her husband work. And have the Children at home and care for them while still trying to do their jobs. So it's really a little bit of, you know, everyone trying to figure out the best solution that works for their family on a slightly different angle to in your story, Dennis understand that some of these Child care. Daycare centers are actually opening up space for like a In a We work environment where kids can actually like Don't actually I know we're not enrolled at the centre but actually come in and use the space to do schoolwork. Yes. So actually, it's really interesting on during the course of my reporting around child care and education right now, Right Horizons actually rolled out programs through its own senators and partnership. And many major employers have actually signed on to this programme with the offer supervision and support to students who work remotely right now. I love their description of it. She really nailed that she did say it sort of felt like a little mini. We work for the kindergartners. Thanks, Megan Megan Lynn Hart. Senior reporter at CNBC make it coming up next Miami Dolphins defensive end Christian Wilkins on food and finances..
Chasing My Cure with Dr. David Fajgenbaum
"I've heard you describe your life as two half times in five overtimes. Interesting you know because it sports reference comes easy you. Grown up as a kid in around. Raleigh North Carolina, it sounded like your life you pretty much live. It was like football as your religion almost. That's right. Tell me I. Mean What? What was it about that? Because a there seems to be interestingly some foreshadowing in terms of conviction and devotion and work ethic that showed up there and relentlessness. That has transferred later to July but some curious what were your aspirations back then early on I had this dream of of one day playing college football and I don't know if it was because I was so close to the NC state football team. My Dad was the team doctor for NC state and so I'm I spent so much time there and kind of just idolizing. The players and I love the sport I loved the athletic. I also always really really liked the strategy part of football. There's a as you know there's so much more going on between snaps during snaps than you necessarily can see, and so I just I loved the game and I think is an and now I look back many years later I think that. It also is probably just a reflection of my personality that I locked onto something and yes, there are things about football that I love. But but it was also the thing that I was locked on doing in the goal that I had set and so I just put everything I had into it yet. So your doctor was the teen by for my Dad yes that's your dad. Yes. What did he share any of the experiences because I know it's interesting because you know football has had an interesting reputation and a spotlight over lives really decade from. A medical standpoint I'm curious whether as you were coming up and playing at higher and higher levels, your dad being the doctor who was working a lot of football athletes whether you guys have ever had conversations about that will also my dad actually included me with him for like everything I mean I was on the sidelines with him for Football Games and I was in the locker room with him before games at halftime and after games, and so I I was very much with him throughout and but I have to say that this is like the. Nineties thousands when when we really just didn't know what we know now I mean, we thought concussions were a temporary thing. You just kind of worked through over a few days. We had no sense for for the long term impact them and says, I look back on anatomy that I mean it was almost like we we were playing this sport and we didn't know the risks and. You had aspirations beyond I. Mean Highschool was one became but also it sounds like you had aspirations for sure college. was there an inkling in your mind that said I want this to be my career or was it just Did it never sorta like get to that level? You know I the goal that I had was to play college football that was growing up that was that Was the goal it wasn't to play professionally it wasn't even certain things to do in college. It was just I want to play college football, and as you know that that kind of singular focus than change once I. got there. But really for me, it was played college football. Yeah I mean I'm really curious about what you said also that you kind of obsessed with not just the. Physical aspects of the game but the strategic aspects of it you ended up playing qb playing quarterback, and so it's almost like you're there's a huge leadership aspect to it. There's a lot of complexity and there's a requirement in that position to process vast amounts of information and a lot of complexity that's changing in real time and also not just think about it but make decisions and take action. It's something that I loved about the game was the exactly all those things integrating so much information acting on it and and something I enjoy. But I don't think I've realized just how important those sort of skills would become as I've moved on in dealt with other challenges in life so you end up actually In Georgetown Lane Football, what we actually studying there. So I planned to go when I chose to go to Georgetown one of the main reasons that I wanted to go there because they had a really strong pre med program and I wanted to do a health sciences major because I was really interested in sports medicine it was okay. This is kind of a way to to Meld my interest in medicine with interest in sports and so I was from the very beginning interested in going into medicine. But as you know everything really changed once I got there in. My interest in sports medicine really really shifted. So

Who Is Activist, Ella Baker
"From Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny. Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manica. Very. Excited to present our. September. This month we're talking about activists. Women who stood up and fought against injustice and for a better world today, we're talking about a woman who doesn't often receive the recognition she deserves for her behind the scenes activism. As a prolific activist, she had a hand in society changing work major civil rights leaders turned to her for her organizational skills. Let's talk about Ella Josephine Baker. Sisters in the struggle for human dignity and freedom. I am here to represent. The struggle that has gone on for three hundred years. Ella Baker was born on December thirteenth nineteen o three in Norfolk Virginia. She grew up in North Carolina on the very same land where her grandparents were enslaved a few decades earlier. Ella's mother was part of the Local Missionary Association. She helped feed their hungry neighbors and encouraged women to be a force for positive change this activism and kindness stuck with Allah. Ellis studied at Shaw University in Raleigh North Carolina and graduated as Class Valedictorian nineteen twenty seven shortly after she moved to New York City in Nineteen thirty ELA joined several women's organizations and served as national director of the Young Negroes Cooperative League that organization focused on supporting the economic development of the black community in nineteen forty Ella started working as a field secretary for the N. Double A. C., p. she moved up to work as director of branches after just three years. She later also served as the president of the New York. City branch. Then in Nineteen fifty-six, Ella Co created the organization in French. Which bought the oppressive Jim Crow laws in the south. The following year a move to Atlanta to help with Martin Luther King Junior's Organization the southern Christian Leadership Conference. At that time, the SC L. C. was a brand new venture. It was created after successes like the Montgomery bus boycott black leaders including Martin Luther. King Junior created the organization to assemble more boycotts and. Throughout the south. But for the venture to be successful, it would take a masterful organizer while Martin Luther King Junior took the reins as the SEC's public figurehead Ella worked behind the scenes setting the organization's agenda and framing the issues. She organized the crusade for citizenship a campaign to support voting rights. For African Americans, she also helped Rodney Atlanta s ELC headquarters and even served as a temporary director for several months after the resignation of the previous office holder, Ellis desire to focus on the issues and to have influence over the. Direction often clashed with the group's main. Right, as ellos considering resigning in nineteen sixty radical act of civil disobedience inspired her to take a new direction on February first black college students in Greensboro. North Carolina where I'm from refused to leave a lunch counter. Worth's where they'd been denied service for Joseph McNeil Franklin McCain and their to college dorm mates that time was February first one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty. The day they walked into a Greensboro. Woolworth's and sat down at the segregated lunch counter. Ella wrote a letter that encourage students across the south to join forces and take similar acts of protest. She also organized a meeting at Shaw University for the students who spearheaded the citizens from those meetings, the student nonviolent coordinating committee or Snick was created. snick would have a profound impact on the civil rights movement. Ella encourage snack to focus on practicing group centered activism rather than leader centered activism in contrast to the SE L. C.'s leadership style with Mlk at the forefront. Under, this method, of Leadership Snick ran many successful initiatives including the nineteen sixty one freedom rides and the nineteen sixty, four freedom summer and Mississippi L. continued her activism through the sixties. She was also a consultant for the Southern Conference Education Fund and organize the Mississippi Freedom Democratic. Party she later returned to New York City and continued her work until she passed away on. December thirteenth nineteen eighty six. She was eighty three years old. Ella Baker was an incredible driving force behind much of the public civil rights work. We learn about in school while she never sought the spotlight she was committed to improving life for future generations
Welcome to the USA
"Whole over WANNA. Welcome to another episode of this week in travel. My Name is Gary coming to you from the lovely state of Wisconsin where I have nothing but beer cheese and brought were since I have arrived. And that is legally the only thing you can eat here we've been or not. That chuckling voice you hear in the background coming from the land of smoke Mr Chretien. It's not just smoke also smoke fire and really hot but other than that. It's a lovely time to be in California. You don't say really in California you'd have flares. Wow. We have guest we had over the last three days. I just saw the number I. Think it's ten thousand different lightning strikes. Ten Thousand Eight, hundred, and forty, nine in a state that tends to get one thunderstorm every three years. So that's a little unusual for us. So you're making up for lost time. That is correct I believe it's also possibly the end of days that is. We're expecting frogs next. It's twenty twenty. I. Think those guys are going to get nailed with just a massive earthquake. This year I was one of the Salton Sea and they said, you know that's the kind of one of the anchor points of San Andreas fault so could happen. It. would be the capstone in this year. It would just you know. I. Think I things that could happen. But yeah. Well, speaking of which the man will go into the sea when that earthquake happens Mr Spud Hilton. From San Francisco. He's he's technically on the North America Plate. The senator is just misses San Francisco. At thank you for Thanks for pointing that out that that is great comfort. Father had a theory that everything from the San Andreas Fault East would fall into the Pacific Ocean. Your father was rather unsuccessful land speculator is this. Yeah. He he hopes trade I think that was pretty much the deal so We're doing okay here in San Francisco but I'll tell you sky is never been a well, not never been hasn't been this color in a couple of years put that way. It reminds me of the last time I was in a in New Delhi. They were burning the fields. It's it's that sort of thing. I'll here. It's just nice. It's like in the seventies everyday and it's just it's just really nice. Panther Schools? In all seriousness there they had a vote wants to what to put on the license plate in one of the options was.

It's just really nice So you have it very nice and then you have these punctuated really bad things and here it's just kinda crappy like every year and that sort of what evens it out. So. I. Think it all. It's just in what sort of dose you get it. But yeah expose you guys didn't sign up earthquakes when he went to North Carolina. Now, we're expecting nine hundred. Ninety trimmers you know luckily, we're actually on insight forty on the way to the bank so we didn't feel anything. We escaped with a couple of hours best leave. Well.

Extreme weather. the hottest temperature perhaps ever recorded certainly the the best the highest verify temperature on the planet earth was this week in death valley in Furnace Creek. Where they got a temperature of one hundred and thirty degrees Fahrenheit or I think it was fifty four point one degrees, Celsius. Which is Crazy to hunt. Every. So often they have these these heat waves that come through valley, and so there was always a news team there and they try to fry an egg in a frying pan. Just. Left out in the Sun. And I just before we got on I was watching CNN try to do this and it actually didn't really work. They had like a black frying pan and they cracked an egg and like some of the white parts of the egg started to cook and that was it.

Raleigh Protesters Topple Two Confederate Soldier Statues from Monument at State Capitol

C. was at the downtown capitol grounds there was shouting and cheering as the Confederate soldiers felt then protesters sang and chanted as they drag the two bronze statues through the streets they hung one by its neck from a street sign and drop the other one at the downtown courthouse there are still more than ninety Confederate statue standing
Real estate disruptors got disrupted by COVID-19
"In a growing number of cities. If you want to sell your house you can get an instant offer from tech enabled companies known as either buyers. If you accept the company may fix up the house a bitch then turn around and sell it within a few months at a tidy profit amidst the pandemic the four biggest I- buyers open doors Zillow offerpad redfin. All temporarily stopped buying houses and March in some cases backing out of deals and laying off staff but now buyers are starting to come back. Mike del Preti has been following this corner of the market. He's a scholar in residence at the Leeds. School of business at the University of Colorado Boulder. Fundamentally I bein. Transfers the risk of selling ones home from the homeowner to the I. Buyer and and somebody needs to pay for that and that's typically the fee that an eye buyer charges of before the pandemic the average fee buyer would charge around seven percent but now the question is are consumers willing to pay ten to twelve percent for the ability to sell their home in this in this environment. I think that's that's one of the big questions that they're going to look. Some housing analysts are expecting home prices to fall this year. What does that mean for this model? If these companies can't buy a house and turn around and sell it at a profit typically an IBM will hold a home for about ninety days So I think the loss of depreciation relatively small but it just goes to the question of fees. If they're going to lose money on that they have to make money somewhere. It's just going to be there. Have to charge higher fees. Do you see all the buyers surviving. I think the IB model will survive. I'm not quite sure of all of the I. Buyers will there's only a very small number of of serious buyers out there zillow offerpad they're not little scrappy. Startups that You don't have a lot of capital these are all very you know. There's a very small number of dig. Well capitalized companies here. So I think you know. They have the runway to To get through this. It's just what the future holds. And that's that's a bit uncertain at this point. How is the pandemic changed? The way they actually do business in terms of buying and selling which has been made harder by social distancing requirements the social distance requirements is. Actually this unintended advantage of the I. Model they can enable consumers to transact the house without interacting with somebody else if you want to buy a home from an eye buyer because they own those homes empty you can go visit them. You can tour it on your own. You don't even have to go with a real estate agent that's an activity that only I- buyers can facilitate just by the nature of their model. So the new programs the ivars rolling out there all about doubling down on that unique competitive advantage they have compared to anybody else in the market when you and I have talked before I think we've both been surprised how much people are willing to pay or give up in terms of profit on their home for convenience and for the certainty of making a sale. How do you think that equation changes in a down economy? I think that the appeal is still there. And if you need to move and you're in kind of a cool market where you don't know how long it's GonNa take to sell your home. The appeal of going to an eye buyer is quite strong and I think folks would be willing to pay for that if that he gets up there too high. It does feel a little bit anti-consumer so that's the billion dollar question. Is What will consumers be willing to pay for that convenience uncertainty in a post on quarrel? Mike del Preti is a scholar in residence at Cu Boulder last year. I- buyers accounted for just one percent of overall home sales according to Red Fin. But del Pretty points out. It's not really a national market yet. The model works best in cities like Phoenix. Las Vegas Charlotte. We're houses or affordable and pretty similar making it easier to price them with an Algorithm Raleigh North Carolina was the top market with. Ibm's making up about eight percent of sales
Will Covid-19 have a lasting impact on the environment?
"The pandemic hit air travel in the US is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become unnecessary. Many of you are asking what impact this is having on the environment. So Lauren. Summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius. What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lauren yeah so as you might expect is having an effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen and this is all over not just the US. So scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If this activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions for this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it maybe sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or during World War Two. But here's the thing that is about. The level scientists save world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out shutting down. The economy is not the way to reach. Those long-term emission cuts right. It's these bigger emissions changes like switching to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. Beautiful spring filled with crystal clear. Low humidity days here in North Carolina because having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather but about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather. Here I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities gotten cleaner. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down forty fifty percent. Planes are not flying either so that's actually helped improve local air quality but it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and trucks are still on. The Roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the what are they trying to understand exactly. Yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. They don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic could cause environmental damage? The here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increased fast action Styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible negative effects on the environment from the Corona virus? That's a good point. All of these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seen masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. The pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic. Waste for example California. Just put a sixty day pause on. Its plastic bag ban. And that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure environmental groups. They've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually just temporary measures and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste comeback at some point
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment
"Since the pandemic hit air travel in the. Us is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become a necessary. Many of you are asking what impact all this is having on the environment. So Lauren summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lorne yes so as you might expect. It is having effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen. And this is all over not just a US right. I mean so. Scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions For this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or World War Two But here's the thing that is about the level scientists save. The world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out you know shutting down. The economy is not the way to kind of reach. Those long-term emission cuts right right. These bigger and missions changes like switch to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. This is the most beautiful spring filled with crystal clear low humidity days here in. North Carolina is having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather brought about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather here. I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities it's gotten cleaner you know. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down. Forty fifty percents. Planes are not flying either. So that's actually helped improve local air quality But it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and you know trucks are still on the roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. Right I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the well. What are they trying to understand? Exactly yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities you know. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that you know this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. Don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic environmental damage? Here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increase fiction styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible? Negative effects on the environment from Corona virus. That's a good point. All these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seeing masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. I think the pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic waste For Example California. Just put a sixty day pause on its plastic bag ban and that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure and are groups. You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight. Thanks

"Six ninety right I let's go to Joe well in Raleigh North Carolina who was a Bernie supporter Joe well welcome here and I radio welcome to the show high Hey guys thank you Murray how you guys doing good good yeah you were talking about to Bernie and Biden you know that I did there having right now for the candidacy I you mentioned Hillary Clinton's I have to say the as as a Bernie supporter and maybe you know influenced by what you see on social media and the mainstream media but I have to say I do buy into that if Hillary Clinton was the vice president to be the least likely to be least likely to go out and vote for Biden yeah you know all of them it's interesting Joe well because if you look at that not that would be pairing up there too establishment Democrats who both right aside well let me ask you this can this is a course that we as before if if if you look at the clover shark or a camel Heris who all went to Biden instead of Sanders would you view that as would you view that as a stab which meant or would you consider at that point saying at least it's not Hillary if it's not Hillary okay as the vehicle is a little more nuance and I'm kind of in between you know I don't know that it's so much that establishment push them I would say maybe they saw little benefit into and jump along you know the bandwagon at that point for their proof no that's a that's a sound that's a sound theory because I I said that this past weekend I mean you look at it I got it from you thank you because you know because I I floated out there let's let's take a look at it but you know the the demographics are Biden has a very strong African American support but you didn't see that you actually did not see that during the early primaries or or the early polls for Cameron Heris or I actually want to fight actually I'm I'm a thirty year old male African American and I do Sanders supporters yeah but I don't know why we're not showing up in short I don't know well it's but you know it's and and you know again not everybody fits that same you know demographic in terms of you know the the the the average voter average you know turn out or whatever it might be but if you look at the LA art as a whole I floated that theory that you know it could well be that you know supporting Biden for cameras or Corey Booker will help them in their future I mean this year very quickly running out right two twenty seconds so what about the narrative that blacks one Biden because he was Obama's vice president that doesn't sell you I I think most voters.
"raleigh north carolina" Discussed on Here & Now
"From NPR and WB. You are Peter o'dowd I'm Tanya Moseley. It's here now and we're following. The spread of the corona virus will check in on Seattle in a few moments. But we begin this hour with politics. Voters are heading to the polls in six states today to help decide. The Democratic presidential nominee the biggest prize will be Michigan with one hundred twenty five delegates at stake. And it's especially important for Senator Bernie Sanders who eked out a win there and the two thousand sixteen primary. Don GONYEA IS NPR's national political correspondent. And he's in Detroit on after what we saw on Super Tuesday with the momentum shifting dramatically towards former vice president Joe Biden. Michigan is especially important. We've been talking about it for days. Tell us more on why well let me count the ways This has become simply put a must win state for Bernie Sanders if he wants to slow. Joe Biden's run of of strong showings that started in South Carolina and as you said continued big on Super Tuesday. It's another way of saying that Sanders somehow needs to get some momentum going again polls this past week in Michigan do show that to be a steep hill. He's he's got to climb. Biden has built up a solid double digit lead even fifteen points or more in some of those bowls Sanders is of course looking to history. He trailed Hillary Clinton in polling here four years ago and he did pull out that narrow narrow upset he did indeed ekit out as you said he hopes to do that again. He needs to do that again. Biden meanwhile sees this as a place to essentially nail it down to demonstrate the breadth of his support and to really narrow or block sanders future path. Both of these guys Biden Sanders. They've been there over the last few days. What's been their final pitch to voters. Biden has been talking about beating trump in that. This election is about getting America back on track restoring normalcy that whole pitch. He's also talking a lot about his role in the bailout of the auto industry in two thousand nine That was of course part of the response to the economic crisis that President Obama inherited when he took office Sanders is is really talking with renewed urgency about turning back the democratic establishment. That's how he portrays Joe Biden in this sudden support for him and he's specifically going after Biden for supporting trade deals especially NAFTA which is very popular in this big auto manufacturing day. Yeah I want to ask you about one more thing with a little bit of time. President trump pulled off a surprise win in Michigan back in two thousand sixteen. That was by less than half. A percentage point. I'm thinking about the bigger picture. How important is the State for Democrats in the General? Election and Democrats are still smarting. Because trump's win here was the first four Republicans since nineteen eighty eight. Democrats want to reverse that this year. They need to reverse that if they want to capture the White House and they will be looking to today's result as a way to show signs of strength and a big show of voter enthusiasm. That will really T- up the fall campaign. That's Don Gonyea. He's NPR's national political correspondent in Detroit. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure well now onto Missouri where there are sixty eight delegates up for grabs in today's Democratic primary Jason Rosenbaum as a political reporter for Saint Louis Public Radio and Jason how much time have Senator Sanders and former Vice President Biden actually spent. They're both sanders in Biden. Visited the state. Because it's pretty symbolic state for both candidates. If Biden can win pretty decisively in a state that sanders almost one in two thousand sixteen it would cement his status as the national front runner and Sanders really needs to put up a strong showing in the state a state that he only lost by two thousand votes if he wants to get his campaign back on track. So both Kennedy to visit here Both of the candidates organizations are trying to get out the vote in both candidates have spent money on television advertising. This is the state that Hillary Clinton won in the twenty six teen primary by less than a single percentage point. What have the polls been saying this time around the polls not terribly credible in the state but the ones that I've seen have shown it to be anywhere from like a four point lead to a twenty point Biden lead so I wouldn't really trust the polls in the situation when I am going to be looking for though especially when the results come in is how predominantly African American areas of the State. Vote Black voters make up a sizeable chunk of the Missouri Democratic Voting Base and if Biden can win places in Saint Louis and Kansas City with heavy African American population. Sort of like how Clinton did and he can pair it with suburban and rural turnout than that's going to be the twenty point win that some of the polls are foretelling but if sanders is able to improve his standing within the black community as many of his supporters. Say THAT HE CAN. Then we may have a closer race on our hands. You know. Missouri has historically Gone Republican for the general election. It's expected to go to president trump in November. But there are other things that Democrats are focused on in in Missouri and are hoping for Yes. That's exactly correct. President trump is almost assuredly going to win Missouri in the General Election but Democrats here are hoping for a presidential candidate that can perform more strongly than Hillary Clinton Clinton lost the state by almost twenty percentage points and that doomed a lot of down ballot candidates if the the candidate that wins the presidential nomination whether it be sanders or Biden can lower that margin to maybe five to ten percentage points. It could help somebody like Nicole Galloway. Who's going to be running for governor? In one of maybe two or three gubernatorial races that are going to get national democratic money so even though the state is not up for grabs in the presidential rate race. It doesn't mean it's unimportant for Democrats especially ones that care about gains in the state legislative arena at Jason Rosenbaum. He's a political reporter for Saint Louis Public Radio. Thank you for joining us and thank you for having me. Washington state is also voting today but voters. There will be casting their ballots by mail. Which could be a good thing could lower the risk of spreading the corona virus at the polls health officials? Say At least twenty. Two people have died from the disease across Washington state the most recent three more elderly patients the life care center in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland. Which is the site of the worst outbreak? So far in the country K. U. O. W. Reporter. Casey Martin is in Seattle Casey. This sounds like a tough situation about a third of the employees at this nursing home are out sick. The reportedly showing symptoms consistent with Corona virus. What are you hearing Your Life Care? Center says originally seventy employees who were showing symptoms like a fever or shortness of breath. They were sent home. Five of them have returned to work. In Kirkland a spokespersons says none of these employees or anyone who works at life care has been tested yet They say that's because of a lack of test kits and almost two hundred people work there. Okay we'RE GONNA get to why they haven't been tested in a minute but what is who who is left living there These are vulnerable elderly people. How many people are still living there and have they been tested yet right now? Fifty five people are still there And only thirty five have been tested so far. They're still waiting on about twenty more test. Results and thirty one of those patients have tested positive for the disease One person has tested negative. So far okay. Well as you say. The management at this nursing home says they don't have enough test kits to test their sixty five employees for the corona virus. How is that possible? This is one of the most high profile hot spots in the country. We will yesterday Life Care Center. Spokesperson said. They've simply been told that. There's just not enough to test kids for the staff right now. Life Care gets its kids from Washington State Department of Health but they also get it from a few other agencies like the CDC so they said it's hard to pinpoint where they're getting them from But there's simply a lack of test kits for the employees. They say it's concerning and they've heard that there will be a drive up or a mobile testing unit But there's nothing specific on that and they also said that they wouldn't demand their staff to be tested when the kids become available. All right. We'll keep an eye on that but officials from the CDC are also expected to visit an assisted living center west of Seattle later today. Another group of vulnerable people. How concerned are health experts that this disease is taking off in these facilities where these vulnerable people are living? Yeah absolutely we heard that the CDC was going to be at the life. Care Center in Kirkland last Saturday But to our knowledge we haven't seen any sort of presence whatsoever. They also said that another special. A testing unit would be there Tuesday of last week but for everyone. Who's been there watching? Who's coming in? Who'S GOING? It's really only been the staff nurses. They're still getting deliveries and they're still local. Emt's coming and going but We've been told that the CDC will be at the nearby nursing home in Redmond but we haven't seen any presence on the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also recently announced a five million dollar commitment to expand corona virus testing in the Seattle area. Of course where they're based This is part of a much bigger effort worldwide and then last night on. Msnbc Governor Jay Inslee said there could actually be many more cases out there and that the state has increased its test capacity by a factor of twenty. Let's listen we really need to as leaders make decisions looking forward to where this is going rather than what it is today we might have a thousand people infected today in Washington but this doubles every week. What about that? Is there a sense? There in Seattle outbreak has already much worse than the numbers are showing. Yeah absolutely governor. Inslee said last night that he expects over thousand people in the near term here in just a local Seattle area and then Beyond that and puget sound region. Sixty thousand people you know. Estimating that people could be affected specifically targeting people with compromised immune systems and the elderly. It is amazing that there.
Anna Julia Cooper, Visionary Black Feminist
"Today we're talking about an African American author scholar Speaker activist sociologist and Educator who succeeded in an era when nearly all the cards were stacked against her are feminist of the day. Is Dr Anna Julia Cooper? Anna Julia Haywood was born into slavery on August tenth eighteen fifty eight in Raleigh North Carolina. When Anna was young she and her two older brothers worked as house slaves in the home of George Washington. Haywood when Anna was nearly five years old. Abraham Lincoln made his emancipation proclamation while life was still incredibly difficult for African Americans in the US especially in the south new doors. Slowly Open for children like Ama- when she was nine Anna won a scholarship to attend the new. Saint Augustine's normal school and Collegiate Institute. A school created to train new teachers to educate former slaves. Anna consistently got good grades. She excelled in the liberal arts as well as math and science even so anna soon realized her opportunities were limited by gender. In addition to race male classmates were directed towards a more rigorous curriculum than their female peers. Anna fought to take the men's courses and eventually succeeded. This fight prompted Anna to dive into advocacy for the education of black women in eighteen. Seventy seven Anna married one of her classmates George Cooper. He passed away just two years later. In the aftermath Anna Dove headfirst into furthering her education and advocacy. She studied mathematics at Oberlin. College where she continued to take the classes designated for men by eighteen. Eighty eight and had earned both a bachelor's of science and a masters degree she also taught math science and Latin at a high school for black students in DC in eighteen ninety two and published a book entitled a voice from the South by a black woman of the south it became one of the first poor African American feminist texts in it. Anna argues that educating black women is the single best investment in the well-being and prosperity of her community around that time. Anna joined the Black Women's Club movement. A coalition of middle-class black women striving to empower other African Americans and became Popular Public Speaker for the movement. She gave speeches at gatherings. Like the National Conference of Colored Women in eighteen ninety five and the first pan-american conference held in London. In one thousand nine hundred. She spoke about the oppression of African Americans and the importance of empowerment through education in nineteen. Oh Two Anna became the principal of the high school where she'd been teaching for years under her leadership. School became known for its Academic Reputation. And it's focused and college preparation. The schools focused drew no shortage of critics many people including prominent black speaker and community leader. Booker T. Washington believed that vocational classes were more important than academic ones. The DC board of education eventually sided with Anna's opposition and refuse to renew her contract for the nineteen o five school year still. She continued her work in education. Teaching at Lincoln University in one thousand nine ten Anna was hired to teach in her high school. Alma Mater Saint Augustine's. She stayed there until nineteen thirty. She also served as the president of a university for working adults by age sixty seven. She earned a doctorate degree from the Sorbonne in Paris making her the fourth African American woman in history to earn a degree of that level. Her dissertation called Slavery and the French revolutionist was written in French. Anna was a groundbreaking scholar educator and feminist writer. She was also a hardworking mother. Who raised to foster children and five adopted children? Anna passed away in her sleep at the age of one hundred five
Who Needs A Realtor? iBuyers Pay Instant Cash For Your House
"So if you're looking to sell your house and you don't want to deal with realtors maybe don't want people tromping through your living room while there is another option. Companies called either buyers used these computer algorithms to determine an offer price the downside of this it is typically a lower figure than if you went with a traditional route. Here's NPR's Chris. Arnold Janet Jenkins and her husband recently separated. She moved across the country to North Carolina and they decided to sell their home outside Los Angeles and doing open houses to show. The place was problematic in part because Jenkins has a lot of pets as in parrots and and peacocks and her husband was still living in the house with some of them. This is wrangler. Wrangler is an ECLECTIC parrot. He gets into a lot of mischief. And then of course you have the dog crate and you had the bird cages and it was just not the best environment. Kinda here right now how. It might showing the transfer of my places zoo. She knew the realtors would want the animals and her estranged husband out of the house which would mean him catching the bird each time. The parrot is not my husband's favorite pet also needed some repainting and carpeting to get really ready to show and she didn't want to deal with that and so I started looking up home-buying services in ran into Renton instant buyer or EIBAR. Services are growing very quickly in parts of the country companies such as Red Fin zillow open door and offerpad will give you an offer to buy your house in about a day. Then they'll send it inspector by take a closer look now can get you the money for your home as quickly as a week. Daryl fairweather is red fins chief economist. She says I buying companies also offer flexibility. So you can time the selling of your house perfectly to work with buying a new house and moving the eye buyers then spruce up to has is that they buy and sell them again. Redfin today is releasing a report on all the homes being sold this way around the country in Raleigh North Carolina more than seven percent of sales in two thousand nineteen were either sales so it's becoming quite prevalent there and then in markets like Phoenix Charlotte. Atlanta it's more than five percent of sales and fairweather says in many of those places I by our sales doubled from the year before. Redfin is also buying homes in southern California in Janet Jenkins case. She went online answered some questions about her house. And REDFORD's computers ran their algorithms and offered her around five hundred thousand dollars Jr actually thought that was a bit low and so did two of her friends who are realtors so I pushed back. Redfin made her a better offer and they had a deal. Jagan says she thinks he could have made more. Maybe ten thousand dollars if she took the time to fix up the house herself and sold it the traditional way you delete money on the table and while we did. We didn't leave that much. Redfin does get a fee like a regular realtor commission. The company wouldn't say what it's average profit per home is so. Is it a good idea to try to sell your house this way? William Wheaton is a housing economist at MIT. He says it the key to this whole thing is that it works in places where many houses are similar places. Where a lot of these? Ibm Sales Are Phoenix. Las Vegas you have sprawling subdivisions. Warehouses are almost identical. There's not a lot of difficulty in pricing. Those houses the ones where the swimming pool or worth a little more than the ones without but you can do statistical modeling of that and just nail it be ninety nine percent correct in predicting the press and that means I buy off you just a little less than what. The House is worth and still be confident that they can sell it for a little profit but in areas where has are not similar. Say older cities where some homes are newer. Some old some renovated some are not prices are all over the place in those areas. The I. Buyers have to be really really careful so we didn't says they're like we offer you a very low ball price because they are really sure what the house is worth and they don't WanNa lose money exactly. That's why the I. Buying companies so far focusing on places with a lot of similar housing still waiting says in places like that he thinks buyers could really change the way. Homes are sold in large parts of the country. Chris Arnold NPR
Brickmaking bacteria and solar cells that turn waste heat into electricity
"Now we have staff writer Robert Service. He's here to tell us about engineered living materials. Things like exponentially replicating living bricks. And instant. Runways. Hi Bob okay. We're talking about engineered living materials. Can you break these terms down for us? It's basically just using organisms mostly microbes to make materials the idea of using organisms to make materials in any form has been around forever. Of course be trees to make word. We use cotton plants to for the continent textiles so in the last couple of decades. There's been many many examples where synthetic biologists have been using genetic engineering tools to tweak the genes of mostly microbes to get them to make all kinds of different molecules. They might be medicines. They might be improved. Production of ethanol probably hundreds of examples. What folks have been doing the last couple of years have now been trying to use some of the same genetic engineering tools to get microbes to make materials so think of things like replacements for bricks would like materials or something like that the metaphor that of coral that use stray was really helpful understanding us so there are organisms that do this all the time. Coral organisms secrete a form of bio cement that makes the coral reef. People are just trying to take advantage of some of that building prowess and put it to use in new ways. And this case engineers are using microbes to build things like rex. So how would that work? What do you do with the bacteria to make it? Grow a brick frio. There is an example Raleigh North Carolina company called Bio Mason. They use bacteria to essentially synthesize calcium carbonate which forms the cement around granules of sand. So you can basically make a bio cement. The reason why you might want to do that is normally when bricks or cement concrete has made. It takes a vast amount of energy to do that. You have to have kilns to hit the brakes to one thousand degrees. You have to fire them for long periods of time by going through a different route with engineered living materials. You can think about doing this at room temperature and therefore potentially reduce your cost quite a bit and your carbon footprint right and your carbon footprint. Yeah Yeah do you have to keep the bacteria alive inside a brick? If the bacteria grow the brick normally the way they do it is they start with sand and some nutrients for the bacteria and water and they formed the slurry and then the bacteria grow than after a few days. They begin to allow the bricks to dry out and as they do then. The bacteria will die. If these cells stay alive these microbes stay alive. Could they keep making bricks now? There is one example that we wrote about a about some researchers at the University of Colorado sort of taking the same idea to another level and they in a way they sort of like create like a sour dough starter in bread-making sour dough. You keep starrer with that has your yeast or whatever and use some of it to make particular love for Brad and then you add a little more the starting material and they get that to reproduce. Just keep doing that. And people keep their starters. I for years and years in the same way. But they're doing is they're getting bricks to reproduce themselves so they again do that. Slurry of the nutrients in the sand and and they make a bricks. They keep it in a state where it's the organisms are still viable and then they divide the bricks into and then they add more nutrients and more sand things like that to make two bricks which happens in a matter of hours and then they can do that generation after generations. You go one to two to four to eight exponential exponential breaks right. So they're they're growing bricks. Yeah what about this runway that you mentioned in your story in this case a group made a very large prototype of a full-scale run by they idea. There is in the military. And you want to set up an expeditionary runway and some hotspot around the world you don't WanNa have to carry all the San and aggregate with you and and everything else you would need to make a runway. You can just use local material bringing in some drums of the bacteria that will do the job and you give it some water and you're off to the races. There's also this idea that you might use living breaks in your walls to purify the air. You could just make surfaces that Harbor Bacteria to get them to do different jobs. You want them to do and one of those jobs. People are considering is to purify the air so get rid of any toxins in the air or contaminants or something like that. We write about a group from China in the US that started with the bacteria called Bacillus idolizes and that act curious secretes a protein. Once outside the body of the bacteria it links up with lots of other members of its own kind and creates a matrix that the bacteria then can live on and they use that to make what is called Biofilm. And there's lots of these biofilms out there in the real world. Bacteria colonize our teeth that way. That's how Schiphol's get colonies on them in this case the folks tweak this protein in order to bind different enzymes and they did two different things one. They bound an enzyme to this matrix. That makes the biofilm that breaks down a toxic compound and then they went on to show that it works. The enzyme remain viable in fact degraded that toxin and then they went one step beyond that no said okay well can we culture mix of bacteria that do more than one chemical job at a time so in this case they did a two step reaction to break down a pesticide and in that case in order to break it down the first bacteria had to do its job with one enzyme to do the first reaction and then a second bacteria had to generate another action to do a second job and that that works. It's the idea that you can create a mix of organisms to detoxify things that could be your environment. We talked about the bill environment. But now we're gonNA talk about the medical world to how might these engineered living materials work in medicine? One way in which that might happen is through the use of these biofilms again so another group that we write about from northeastern university in the US. But they're doing our engineering. A different matrix forming protein and it also helps bacteria form biofilms and in this case. They're getting it to bind the cellular lining of your gut in order to allow the bacteria which they're already many healthy kinds of bacteria that help line the gut. So what they're trying to do is for patients with inflammatory bowel disease in which part of that lining breaks down and can cause painful ulcers there trying to restore that by making a a natural environment conducive for these bacteria to then go in and set up a new biofilm to offer protection for people with the disease so you would introduce. He's engineered bacteria that are really good at making a biofilm correct. You can also engineer bacteria to work inside materials to do other things so we write about another example where researchers at MIT have come up with a way to three D print. Bacterial spores so spores are the doormat form of a of a bacteria and so they put these a three D. Printer. They print them onto a plastic matrix. Under the right conditions. The spores germinate new bacteria. Those bacteria then engineered to synthesize and antibacterial compound which fights microbe called staph aureus which is a dangerous hospital infection so in that case you could have materials designed to sort of perpetually fight off. Hospital acquired infections sell like a self disinfecting surfaces for hospitals. Potentially that's kind of the way it's going. I WanNa just add a little note here at the end about regulation so most of this stuff is probably not gonNA fall to the Food and Drug Administration or the EPA regulate but are there some areas that might need to have some oversight when it comes to engineering engineered living materials the way that most researchers in the field are thinking about it. They're they're trying to keep all this in mind. All other regulatory issues in mind as they begin these experiments if you have for example are making bio cement in which you're using natural organism. There's not really a problems with that from regulators going forward. Because you're not doing anything. Nature doesn't do already. It's really just the question of are you going to be introducing an engineered organism into the environment. And in that case there will certainly be scrutiny from regulators and the FDA is perhaps the example. Where if you're doing something that might have a medical use there's already a very well trodden system. Set up to regulate foods and medicines and drugs so I think people are pretty comfortable with understanding how that regulation is going to roll out but for example. If you WANNA make engineer walls that talks the air. It's less clear how the process it's GonNa unfold to to get some of those technologies approved

"Always a great time. Audiences have been loving good boys. The guys who made some of the great R. rated comedies of recent years like Super Bad and sausage party ready have made a new one only this one stars twelve year old boys. It's the hilarious new movie good boys which follows three in over their heads sixth-graders as a skip skip school one day to do whatever it takes to learn how to kiss before their first middle school party but there completely clueless about all the inappropriate situations they get get themselves into along the way you know goes when you're a kid you get into all kinds of trouble. You caused a car crash or to you accidentally get involved in a drug deal you use sex toys is numb chucks or at least these kids do. I don't know where you grew up. So maybe your experience was different. You've never seen a movie like this before. People it's super bringing appropriate but also sweet and you're going to really like these kids at the center of it all ever since south by South West early audiences and critics have been raving about good boys. Okay saying that you'll laugh for ninety minutes straight. They're calling it delightfully inappropriate wildly Raunchy and undeniably sweet checkout good boys in theaters August sixteenth so tonight. I'm going to be in Raleigh North Carolina. Theoretically I'm here but I'm not really because this is like a day B._a._R._T.. Before just the way this is going right now but I can't tell you I'm excited because I'm renting a car in North Carolina and I got a thing for pottery. I think some you know that I just do. I don't know what it is. Maybe it's an old hippie thing. Maybe it's a an authenticity thing maybe it's just the sort of fundamentals of of craftsmanship and the individuality Saudi of the process and the sort of ancient art of it all but I like nice pottery just practical pottery pots. They're thrown by hand or mashed and made anyway I just like ceramics and somebody hit me to this area. North Carolina called C Grove. I know nothing about it but they were just sort of like you got to see grow for pottery. I did a little research. It seems like a good deal of the handmade pottery. Coming out of the United States comes out of this area I. I don't know why I didn't do that kind of research. I don't know if it's they they the clays good there or what but I'm GonNa take a trip out there because I've got this dream. Folks got a pottery dream. I got a pottery vision. I've got this cabinet my house that glass front to it. It's an old craftsman built in and I think at one time it might have been used as for China or fancy stuff but in my vision it's filled with all kinds of uniquely individual pieces of hand thrown pottery cups large bowls sales. Maybe a stack of plates. Maybe a pitcher or two that theoretically I would collect over a lifetime but I don't know if I think it's a little late for that because that I haven't been collecting.

"And here's a great happiness hack about exercise something that we all want to hack aren't Gretchen was a bath. Greetings from Raleigh, North Carolina. This is Anna and one of my happiness hock, which will also a health hack for the is not being a morning person. And with my New Year's resolution steam kind of slowing down one of the things that's helped me is with my workout clothes once. I take them out of the dryer too. They go in dirty as an outfit. I folded them and put them away clean as an outfit for for example, instead of putting all the yoga pants together. And all the shirts together. What I do is as I told him out of the dryer. I put that out that together and wool them up and present in his voice standing up, which includes the sock. So all I have to do is grab a bundle is throw it in my gym bag and know that I have everything. Or from working out in the morning and I'm half asleep. Because I haven't had coffee I noticed by grabbing that bundle. I have everything. I don't have to think it cuts down on me talking myself out of working out that morning. So I hope this hope hope you guys are doing well, and I'll continue listening in usually they so much like lighting a great idea because I've realized in other areas of my life that sometimes I would put things away where I thought they went even though it was actually less convenient to access them in that. When you think about putting things away, according to how you use them not according to some sort of abstract categories. I think this is so smart. Yeah. Just and I love that. She puts the socks too because I feel like I'm constantly rooting around for socks. And so to have the socks with the outfit makes it just that much more convenient. Well, and this is the strategy of convenience in the book better than before. I talk about the twenty one strategies that you can use to make or break your habits, and the strategy of convenience is one of the most powerful and most universal strategies that works for just about everyone. And there's all kinds of hilarious research showing that if you make things even the teensy tiniest bit more convenient or inconvenient. You will affect people's behavior. Like, my favorite example is on a salad bar. If people have to use tongs instead of a spoon, they take less food because it's just like that much harder to use a toe use tongs and here like she says, it's it's like it's the morning. I'm not a morning person. I haven't had my coffee. I'm trying to get myself going just having this thing at the ready. You know from being a bully form. Fully assembled could be enough to just tip you into that direction. Just recently grudge, I was madly packing to go out of town for a few days, and I brought workout clothes. I got there and realized I didn't bring any sports bras. Yes. That had I had my outfits together rolled up like she's talking about. I would have just taken two outfits out and put them in. And I would have been fully prepared. Yeah. Yeah. Well, you know, what I think it's also a reminder it's kind of like to Dallas TX because as you have a bundle. Your like, it's reminding you I do exercise. Here's I just use these last week. I just use these two days ago. And so I think it's also reinforcing this idea of like, I'm using these things here's my bundle. I'm already because I use these the way that they've been pulled together because they've been used for exercise before it's interesting, though, just reflecting on this. I realized I did this without realizing it so I send out book plates and signature cards, which you can request. If you just Email me Gretchen at Gretchen, Rubin dot com book place for people. To put in their books, and I used to have like the envelopes in one place, the return address label somewhere else, the signature cards and book place somewhere else like my stack of Penn somewhere else. I mean, not very far apart, but they were all in their own separate thing. And then I got a box and made it like a full a thing where I could just pull the box off the shelf, and I would have everything that I needed and then I need to replenish the box. But it's sort of a fully assembled.

How did you then wind up back performing but in different wet? Well, it's so funny. It's a big careful what you wish for thing because I had with lucky enough to get into Carolina. And it was I always joke around with LeBron. You just joke with Rebecca say like, you know, do Carolina you know, Carolina reason, why became a comedian. It was really in reality was I just felt like the momentum tomato perform was still there. And so when I got except in the Mets goal. That's when I started doing stand up comedy. Did you do it for the first time? It was at a bar in Raleigh, North Carolina. Still remember it was called Berkeley cafe and they didn't open mic night before this Grateful Dead cover band came up and I stacked the deck. I brought like twenty friends just so I can get you know. And this was the first time you're doing in your personal friends as though. Well, I as well as I instruct, you know, I instructed than the laugh, you know. So it went okay, all I remember is a went off script. And and I saw some dead heads in the crowd and. I know anything about the Grateful Dead. And I said, but I did know that one album that was like top forty album or at one single the hit the billboards when I was a kid. I was like oh my God. I'm a big Grateful Dead fan of love the first single they ever did touch gray or something, and they're like, and it was like such a, and I just remember, you know. I just married that got that got some laughs like, you know, funny. I forget my written jokes. But I remember that I remember that ad live. And I think that kind of spark really kind of inform me, you know. And I would just do stand up comedy every couple of months there was this club in Raleigh North Carolina called Charlie good nights. And I later kind of got my way there did open mic there. And then I would find myself like being an opening act for usually they have an MC featuring a headliner and right before the feature sometime that close would actually very grateful to that cloak because they would get like, hey, would you get into this local comic five minutes of stage time, and then I would just do five minutes. So who would be some of the people you proceeded Brian Regan a very young Marc Maron, Richard Jenny. There is some big names, and you point confident enough to do that you had a tight five. I had a good five that I knew I could get a laugh wherever I mean was it dependent on. Sort of language or physicality or what were you leaning on? I think it was all performance was not I'm an okay writer in general. But I do think that especially at that time. It was all performance base. It was really just his scratch my acting inch. It was really described performances. So I put on music, and I you know, dance stupidly to prince or Rolling Stones. It was a whole performance piece. And this is all while you're carrying a med school into your point like in med school in general to get the idea of volume is the science curriculum of any college doing pre med is voluminous.

"Places to live and work for tech professionals. Not San Francisco, not even the west coast, according to the computer technology industry association, put out a big study. Study ranked locations based on job openings projected job growth and cost of living. Now, that's all economic stuff, which is finding good especially when you're young. I mean, you gotta make your way. But their, you know, their quality of life questions, Charlotte North Carolina earned the number one slot. What a great place if you've never been to Charlotte. It's an exceedingly pleasant city. Everything was new exceedingly pleasant. That's the worst slogan ever I've been there. There was hardly any fecal matter on the streets at all. I know they're working on the show. What it takes to be a tech hub? They're trying to import PU Charlotte was number one followed by Raleigh North Carolina, which is another exceedingly pleasant place, Raleigh Durham, Chapel Hill. They call it the Research Triangle. And Austin Tejas number three. Dallas Atlanta Hawks are pretty new cities. Around for a long time. But the growth wise. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Dallas and Atlanta in Huntsville, Alabama, also made the top ten and what this study described as a geographically diverse list, which I think anybody in tech is caught onto Pittsburgh's working on crazy on their tech sector to the usual suspects, San Jose and San Francisco number four number five. Not surprisingly offered tech workers higher median salary than virtually anywhere. But with the cost of living that in San Jose is forty four percent higher and San Francisco sixty four percent higher than the national average sixty some percent higher than the national average. Yeah, I'm surprised it's not higher than that. Like one hundred percent higher. I mean, it's twice as expensive to live in San Francisco's virtually anywhere. But you know, housing is not everything that's not the only cost that people have. Although it's a big part of it. So top rank Charlotte. Median tech industry salary of about eighty eight grand and the cost of living. There is one percent lower than the national average. We'll call it average eighty eight grand average cost of living. The median salary in San Jose is one hundred and twenty two girls. But again, forty four percent higher than the national average cost of living a young person, you think they offered me a job out in California. I think I'll take it. It's forty grand mortem making now they're smart enough to look into what it's going to cost to live going to be living in somebody's garage and not the whole garage. The part that's leftover with the car in there. Let's see according to the study more people moved away from San Francisco than any other city in the final months last year owing to its notoriously high housing prices. Well, what was that stat? We saw that was one of the most amazing stats I've ever seen nine out of ten. Yeah. Which is ninety percent roughly half of people were planning to move within the next year. Half of people under thirty were planning to leave the bay area within the next two years. And I was wondering if that ever happened outside of being in Dresden, Germany or something has that ever happened in history in the shadow of an exploding volcano?.

Tune your flight over Google flights and then by our digital life. Hex tip is moments away before we get to that back to the phones we go with Leonard in Raleigh, North Carolina, either Leonard. Thank you. Nice can talk to you. Welcome. What's going on? Well, -ffiliated marketing, and I'm trying to find a way to market it online. Are you gonna do postcards, but that's not working? And so when you say affiliate marketing, explain to me what you mean by that. Because different people have different definitions. Well, basically, it's a product that I feel is only available through independent business owner, and that's how you get the product. Okay. And so your dealer, and so you need to get more sales for this product. So that you can start making some money. Right. And the only way did did I hear you say correctly that you were sending post cards in the mail. Okay. What is it that you're selling? Excuse me. What exactly are you selling what type of product is it? Okay. The product that. I have. Is a is a prepaid card. Now this prepaid card is different than any other period. Car you might find in WalMart or target or write a it has a tray line built into it. And a trade. Trey line. What's a trade line? Okay. Trae mine is something like open account. The boost your credit. Oh, so okay. I I've never heard of such a thing. Have you ever heard of a trade line is a line of credit link a visa credit card casual give you a train line. So you can spend up to two thousand dollars is that what a trade line is. Yes. Okay. So the line of credit line of credit? Okay. All right. So you're selling a prepaid phone card or credit card. A debit card. Okay. So prepaid debit card that you can get a line of credit alive. A year setting postcards to people in the mail for who might wanna pre card prepaid debit card, right? If people have mostly by them, you know, like. A lot of time. You know, you see them and still with all the time. So this has no fees are to two there's really no peace with associated tape him. There's no peace banking rejoin, my off the card the Coggin hosts a maximum of fifteen thousand. So it's pretty good card. It's just a tough sell. Yeah. No. I mean, it is just it is to- sell because there's a lot of requirements meaning that you when you start targeting marketing, this consumer who's gonna part by a prepaid debit card, a prepaid credit card, and those offers are generally available as you mentioned at any convenience store that you want anywhere on the web. Drew existing meet. I'm sure they're being targeted not just with postcards, but they're being targeted with an actual credit card prepaid credit card that is being mailed to their house and says call this number into authenticated activate this card, and you're sending them a postcard. I wouldn't want to be in your business. Because there's how. Better. Well. You could you could start by there's a there's an old marketing phrase that I use with our clients and our advertising clients is that you want to educate and then activate. Okay. So you have to educate the consumer on just like you. Did why your car is better than anybody else's card? And then you need to activate them by giving them a reason a compelling reason to act now, okay? And so if you start thinking about how can I educate, and how can I activate it? Maybe it's something like a Facebook or a YouTube live seminar about how to boost your credit using prepaid debit cards, and and you give the consumer five reasons why and the viewer few five reasons why. And then you tell them how they can how they can get that card directly from you. How much are you making per card? It's about twenty dollars. Okay. So that's a pretty good chunk of change. So if you could get a hundred people in a room, and if you could get five of them, actually or ten of them, then I can see how this would start generating some money for you. I just I think it's I think it's a tough, sell, and I think it's a tough proposition because if you really wanted to target market somebody you're going to have to spend money out there meeting if you wanted to target say a particular consumer on Facebook, and that is twenty two years old student loans, and I mean, you could go through all this, and maybe they're making minimum wage. I mean, that's probably that we're that consumer is going to be somewhere. And there are maybe their older because they didn't have enough retirement money. And then so you can if you could get demographics from this company on who exactly their consumer is then you can start buying tar those targeted ads on the internet and targeted advertising is very very interesting to me. Just recently. I'm sure you've seen the ads Leonard for say, the ambulance chaser lawyers. Right. Right. Okay. And they all have their jingles. They all have their slogans, but what they're doing now in various places throughout the country. Is it used to be that they would take the ad out in the back of the phone book? Right or maybe an ad on television or radio what they're doing. Now is that they are targeted marketing anybody who's in an emergency room. By geographic territory. So if you're an E R room, you're going to get an ad for whatever that law firm is that ambulance chasing lover of tune, including they're actually saying that they can now target. If I if say an ambulance has been called here house, we have all these different scenarios. So my point being that if they can target somebody who's just an accident who's in the ER row on their phone or tablet, you could certainly figure out how to target market who ever this particular consumer is. And that's I would go back to the prepaid credit card company. That is actually the parent company of this affiliate marketing program and say how you know who is the consumer and then start looking at how you can target market that person on the internet instead of just lambasting, postcards, all in the US postal service. And I'm sure they love you for that. But I don't know how effective that is. But if you can get into an educational type of. Campaign on Facebook start doing Facebook groups to repair your credit and then don't forget about. There's also YouTube YouTube live start putting some videos out there. Putting your coupon your promotional codes, whatever it may be that could be one way to do it. But again, I just want to make sure that that you have enough money behind you because it's gonna take money in this case in order to make money, but you can do it slowly. And surely by start using the social media services by star using Instagram Twitter, Facebook and YouTube live to start getting your mouse message out there, if you have any questions whatsoever as you start going along just give me a call back from one entrepreneur to the other you can do this. Let's talk about your home for just a moment. Simply safe home security, big congratulations from all of us here at the came commandos show to.
