Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

Virginia legislature votes to end death penalty
"Virginia today. Lawmakers in the state house voted to abolish the death penalty and if governor ralph northam signs. The bill virginia would become the twenty third state to end capital punishment. Whitney evans is report for member station. Vpn and she joins us now from richmond and whitney. What's the latest in virginia. Where things stand with this bill. Hi yeah. Both chambers have now approved their versions of the bill but they still have to resolve a disagreement before it can actually go to the governor's desk and that's whether people who were at one time sentenced to die in virginia would perhaps be eligible for parole down the road and the senate is actually pushing for pearl eligibility. So are they going to have to vote. they're going to have to go into what's called a conference committee and hash it out and then they will have then and then it would go to the governor for his signature so democrats are in control of the state legislature in virginia. And the votes on this. Bill have been think largely on partisan lines party lines. But you note that at least a couple of republicans have shown some support along the way. Why is that news newsworthy. That's right well. Democrats have been wanting to abolish the death penalty for some time but they didn't have control of the legislature One republican senator. Bill stanley actually signed onto cosponsor. This bill The senate version of the bill but he backed out because senate democrats wanted to leave the parole provisions in and In the house today to republicans join their democratic colleagues to vote for the bill. In what are you hearing from other people who have an interest in keeping the death penalty groups supporting the victims families or maybe police advocates. How are they responding right. So law enforcement groups in virginia support the death penalty. They wanna make sure that people can still be sentenced to death particularly for killing police officer. the majority of virginia republicans. Again say You know they also support the death penalty and they say victims families deserve what they see. As as this form of justice mind you. I've spoken to numerous family members of victims. Not just in. Virginia who say you know it only makes healing more difficult. And they don't see it as justice at all. I really spoke to rachel. Set sutton the daughter of a police officer who was murdered by name. William in two thousand six more of it was executed in two thousand seventeen against his wishes. Did we just lose. Whitney their whitney. Are you okay well. Why don't we play that tape. If we're waiting for whitney to come back here on the line why don't we play that tape if we have it or many of us and we have continually spoken out that this is not what we wants however we want to honor that is who disagree with us and we are not speaking against them but against this issue that we see from combat society. Yes up and told me that following the whole process leading up to more of his execution was just really painful. Sorry for the technical difficulties. There whitney could you put this into context for us quickly. Virginia has a long history of executing people but actually hasn't done so in a few years. So what does that mean for. People who are still on death row right there to people on death row for capital murder. Both men are black in their forties One of those individuals was convicted of murdering his girlfriend and her two young children. The other was sentenced to death for killing a police officer so abolishing. The death penalty in virginia would reduce their sentences to life in prison. All right whitney evans legal reporter for vpn in richmond. Virginia thank you so much. Thank you

The white supremacist art in the US Capitol
"Now on the sixth of january we saw terrifying scenes in washington dc as right wing rioters and conspiracy theorists incited by the president. Donald trump and other republican politicians invaded the capitol building one of the emblematic images of that day. Taken by mike tyler for reuters featured one of the reuters walking across the second floor of the capitol holding a confederate flag with chilling irony behind him on. The wall is a portrait of charles. Sumner a nineteenth century massachusetts senator. Who was an abolitionist. But it didn't need the riotous to bring white. Supremacist imagery into the capital. Eight statues of confederate leaders. Still stand in the building. So we're going to begin this episode with a special version of our regular feature work of the week and focus on confederate statues and the capital. Sarah beetham is the chair of liberal arts and assistant professor of history at the pennsylvania academy of the fine arts. she's chosen to focus on a sculpture. that was in the capital until recently but is no longer there. It would valentine's nine hundred ninety nine statue of the confederate general robert e lee which was removed from the capitol's national statuary hall on the twenty first of december twenty twenty. So just over two weeks before the riot sarah the images from the capital last week of confederate imagery inside the capitol were so deeply disturbing but that building actually has white. Supremacist imagery in it already. Doesn't it yes absolutely does You know as i was watching the all of those images going by on my on my phone on my on my computer screen You know i. I was just so upset as an american To be watching and worrying about You know our members of congress their staff in that building Seeing that symbolic space be breach on. I was thinking so much about the officers who put themselves on the line to try to take care of. And and Protect our members of congress. My heart really goes out to all officers who were injured in the two who lost their lives on. But of course i was also thinking about The capital and the spaces as an art historian as a scholar of merck and art on and one of the things that i kept coming back to you over and over again was thinking about the significance of all of the art in that collection You have In the capital you have in the rotunda. You have those enormous paintings of All of these scenes from from american history You have the Rotunda with the Freeze going around. It's that is showing all these different scenes of american history as well But then one of the major parts. That i've been thinking about for a long time as the national statuary hall collection on which is a collection of one hundred statues Two of which come from each state on that Began in eighteen. Sixty four And each state has had the ability over time to donate their own two statues to it. n's There are a couple of different criteria for getting into the statuary hall on the statues has to be either marble or bronze. So kind of the highest level of of preserved stature on the subject must be deceased. Must have been associated with that state on and must be historically noteworthy in some way on and subjects are decided on by the states and then donated to the capitol collection with very little oversight by by the capitol collection on end. What i think that maybe maybe more people know now. But i didn't know until a few years ago. Was that a number of the statues. In the capital. Statuary hall collection are actually confederates Either confederate generals The confederate president. Jefferson davis was there on the confederate vice president alexander stevens on with the one that as i was watching those images over and over and over again the kept coming into my head was the statue of robert e lee Which was donated by the state of virginia in nineteen o nine It was by edward. Valentine who was a well-known converts with a sculptor on and it actually wasn't there to be present for the riots because just been removed in december on december. Twenty first of twenty twenty on. And so you know. A lot of people talk about those images of people going by with confederate flags. But i kept thinking you know. This kind of imagery has been there. has been supporting The the capitol for very long time. We talk a bit about valentine before we go onto the specific scope to that. We're talking about because it seems to me to be really amazing. There is this sculptor who long after the deaths of these people was effectively making statues repeatedly of confederate generals. Can you explain that histories y y walls. Valentine's his creating the statues. Sure so. Valentine was a southerner on his entire family was established in richmond. Virginia on there's a museum there today. The valentine museum that includes collections related. To the whole family he came for a very wealthy family. He wasn't actually a confederate soldier because he was studying overseas to become an artist while the war was over but when he came back He saw real opportunity to get involved in confederate commemoration on and he actually produced a number of major statues That's have been in news in the past couple of months One of them is the g. Sant- of robert e lee Lying dead in state on that is at washington and lee university on in the chapel. That's kind of above where his to miss on. It's very striking sculpture for anybody. Who has even before. I recommend looking

We're four blackwater contractors Former service members who opened fire on unarmed iraqi civilians in this source square into thousand seven at least fourteen people were killed. Seventeen wounded took years to bring those shooters to justice. Three of them were sentenced to thirty years in prison one of them. The sniper who first opened fire was given life without parole now. All four of them have been fully pardoned by president. Donald trump. paul dickenson is a lawyer. Represented the families of several victims in the two thousand seventy source square massacre in civilization. And paul dickson joins me now. I'm paul thank you so much for making time. I wonder if we can just start with your description of what happened in this source square back in two thousand seven and and what it did to the to the families that you represent. Thank you chris. What happened on that day was a traffic circle And traffic going through an ordinary day. Why client ali kanani and his family were an suv. Mohammed was driving through with other family members through the traffic circle. For armored vehicles. Tan-colored armored vehicles were entering. The traffic circle held up their hands and on a stop sign to have the traffic stop muhammed. Who was ali's father thought. Nothing of it because it's frequent especially this close to the green zone where they were the tower. You say there is a blocked from the entrance to the greens on Thought that someone important with either leaving or entering the green zone He looked to his right. Saw the person that's in one of the white vehicles in this video. Say that somebody in rome had just been shot at about that time. Bullets started to rain down his suv. He ducks for cover. Hold his sister. Who's sitting in the front seat down. Ali his son and his two cousins or in the backseat as the bullets rained on muhammed peaks. Up trying to see what's going on sees victims being shot killed machine go viral. All over is if ub as riddled with bullets As soon as it started at stopped He thought everybody was ok. That they had lived through a miracle When one of the cousins in the backseat said that ali was her Mohammed got out of the car opened. The door went to the back seat. Saw blood on the inside of the window and ali slumped over against the glass. He opened the door. And this is a bit graphic but what happened was ali slump towards muhammad is. Skull was open. Portion of his brain fell out onto the pavement in its sort square in fact. There's an image of that in that video that you were showing which i presume that you are not showing on tv. Mohammed cold pushed his son back in. The car turned his vehicle around On flat tires and a shutout windshield and drove to a hospital with only a few blocks behind them behind the source square when they arrive. Ali was doing everything he could for his son but knew that he probably had a fatal injury. Ali was still alive at the hospital. He had doctors look at ali He wanted to get treatment for his son. They told him they could not treat ended. The hospital was like a war zone. There were people in the hallways pickup trucks were bit bringing victims into the hospital. They had an ambulance dispatch for muhammed and ali to neurologic hospital across town. They had to actually go back through new source square to get there during the ride ali convulsed as muhammad held his hand and he died. I was contacted to represent them and others in a civil lawsuit against blackwater Eric prints and other of the people that were convicted of these murders and manslaughter charges. We proceeded with a civil lawsuit in north carolina against blackwater in the men. The shooter's that case was removed from state court to federal court. We fought to have it back and say it was in a court of appeal. The four circuit court of appeals in richmond virginia And we eventually resolved the case favorably for all parties without the necessity of trial. And i represent him a kanani family and several others.
First Flight With Mike Manseca
"Tell us about how you started. First flight dot org because this is really obviously. You've you've been to kitty hawk. Many times Tell us what your first time going there. Well my first time was. I couldn't even tell you how old it was as a kid and it actually was with my dad the outer banks always ended up being a place we would go for vacations. I like for instance when i graduated from high school. Joe double hills is where we went for our Graduation party week. Whatever you wanna call it But i've been there before and my family. And i now go actually. I live in richmond. Virginia right now uh-huh even though i'm the head of an organization is down in kitty hawk north carolina but For probably about the last twenty years. We've gone every august for for summer vacation. 'cause we discovered as vacation place all those years ago and we just love. It can't think of a better place to go on vacation so we still do it now when you were a kid and you went there did the significance of the location of the you realize the significance of the location or was it just a a neat place to go for vacation. No no i completely did and much chagrin the rest of my family. They didn't look at me. Like how many times can you go to the same place you know what changes nothing changes. But i. i don't care. It's like a pilgrimage to go to the wright brothers national memorial to go to the park to see where that first powered flight happened and i'm a fanatic about it since i was a kid and when two thousand and three came around and i knew it was going to be one hundredth anniversary of flight trying to figure out. How am i going to get. I'm gonna get down there. Because i had a job. It's in december and then as it turns out my wife said. Hey i put for your birthday put together a trip for you and your dad to go down and spend a couple of days at kitty hawk and be there on the seventeenth and she'd actually only set up for a couple of days and my dad said well. This is wonderful but if we're going to go we might as well go for the whole time. And i think it was a five day celebration so worked it all out. I begged my boss to please have a couple of extra days off and We were there for all the days of celebration. And i have to tell you there was nothing never been anything like it. I don't know if i don't know if you've ever been to any of the celebrations but that one and of course was worldwide as far as the publicity for it but i can't remember how many people they said were there but the thing about it is i saw every kind of playing you can think of especially military plane fly over during those days. 'cause there was an air show every day and let's see also saw a lot of famous aviation people so the great thing was being able to see. Neil armstrong john glenn bob who hoover patty wag staff any number of people who were being honored that week And then on the actual seventeenth john travolta introduce president george w bush and he made a speech on the seventeenth of course out of all those days. Which day was the ugly rainy day. Yes it was the seventeenth. It was cold. It was rainy The attempt to do the flight at ten thirty five did not go off like it was supposed to. But i was so glad that i was there so now. I'm just curious. And i don't know the answer to this question. The wright brothers choose that location because they were building the airplane in dayton. Is that correct. That is correct. Actually wilbur wrote to the national weather service. And said hey. We're looking for replace. That has a lot of wind and his isolated and they could do their experiments in in private. Kitty hawk was a bonus because all the sand dunes. Which makes it a lot easier if you have an accident while you're trying to fly instead of trying to land on hard ground Which is essentially what they had in ohio flat hard ground right so they had gotten a number of different places they could try and they went ahead and wrote to the postmaster down in kittyhawk in he basically said hey. If you come down here. We'll do everything we can to help you find a pleasant group of people and we look forward to it so they basically took them up on that offer. So now when did you. Did you start the first flight organization. No no no under current president but the first flight organization or now you got me saying it's the first flight society actually started in nineteen twenty seven as the kill devil hills memorial creation. I hope i said that right. It's changed names a few times but yes Nine thousand twenty seven kill devil hills memorial association basically what it was was a group of about forty six businessmen put together by a newspaper publisher named W sunders who said hey. Let's let's this an important place. Let's get a memorial built. You know and this is something that would be seeing nationwide and would also you know side benefit is would be reason for people to come and visit each daughter bax back. At that time there was no bridge over to the outer banks from the mainland. You had to take a boat a really. Oh yeah you know. And that was the same. As in the time of the wright brothers. They had to take boats with crates of all their parts for their their planes and it was quite the trip and and even the first when they were building the memorial and people were coming down and they were dedicating. It was a heck of a trip train rides boat rides. You know wasn't like let's just get on a plane. Fly there because even at that time it was pretty it was just. There wasn't a lot of people just going to go up and

It's the Little Things
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

"Could lose their jobs in October. American Airlines says it will cut more than 40,000 jobs in October due to the drop in air travel caused by the Corona virus pandemic. American executives say 23,500 employees have accepted buyouts retired early or taken long term leaves of absence, but another 19,000 will have to be furloughed or laid off. American says the cuts could be avoided if the federal government comes up with another $25 billion for air. Lines. In March, the government gave airlines $25 billion to save jobs for six months.

Georgia, Texas and Florida lead the country in coronavirus cases per capita

Georgia governor Brian Can I want to continue to urge all Georgians to get tested in a lot of ways It would help me out if people where there's not much spread would go get tested because it skew the numbers, though the way minorities have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic.

Latinos in the city have nearly three times the number of covert 19 cases than white residents. Health experts say. The Iris is heavily impacting low wage workers who lack paid sick leave and adequate workplace
"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

Rabiu is our guest for this episode and she says, she decided to make a career in ice cream when she started to think about being an adult who needed to have a job and how to have a job that feels like fun at least most of the time I realized that I was GonNa say signed working and I wanted to do some that enjoyed doing. So I went to culinary school and we learned how to make ice cream like in a machine, their small machine but I really enjoyed the process and the different things you could add to it and fell in love with it and just decided. That if I was GonNa do something for myself long-term. I wanted to be ice cream because I from my childhood even now to adult Abulat fond memories that include ice cream and I wanted to be a part of that for families and friends in people that I know and don't know into you know old a special place in their heart through. What makes your ice cream special will I I? It's delicious Zeiss Grievous but we make it all by hand. So it's all small batch make more than like four gallons at a time because of the machine and have. We do Vegetarian Gluten Free Vegan. We're working on some sugar free. So we're doing our best to make sure that we can accommodate everybody's lifestyles, dietary restrictions and slipped Reggie with cool Sitri and then ownership wise. We are black women and we're on what kind of edge does that give you that another shot might not have for us it's very important that we make people feel. Safe and inclusive and accepted because the things that we've both had issues with. Throughout our own lives, we want everybody to be able to come into the shop. We matter what they look like at identify as who they you know whatever they're going through we want them to feel safe to come and enjoy. Ice Cream cookie with themselves with whomever they desire and. Feel like that space is there's Well. That's cool. Because everybody should be able to enjoy ice cream. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's exactly. It's also the way a lot of our young listeners field. So let's hear some of your questions. Hello I'M CHARLOTTE I'll leave in Australia Newcastle and Fluffy so deny. To, learn how to Mike US Cream. I names ULA years old from Nova Scotia Canada, and I'm wondering how does not turn into ice cream? Hi May name is May and flavors up, and my question is holidays came made ice cream sounds like it's just cold cream, but there's a little more to it. So what is ice cream? So ice cream is defined as a frozen dairy dessert. That basically has air like incorporated into it while it's freezing because while the air. So the basis of it is usually heavy cream milk. Sometimes I'd guilt not always use sugar and then whatever your flavorings are gonna be. So we basically he'd all those things up together bring him to a point where all of our ron greedier become safe to eat. Whole it down and then. Put it into machine which we refer to as a batch freeze there that we would turn on as a cylinder on inside so that ice cream is spinning as getting cold. So while we incorporate air that ice cream, if you will you get basically this fluffy creamy product because when you mix. Hold an air milk. You get that texture that we all know as ice cream if it didn't spin around if you didn't get the air into it, would it just be like a block of ice to ascend? So does going to save. You don't put the air intuit things that we also know popsicles if you've ever had like a fudgesicle which is the icy but still cold that is what would happen if you didn't pump that air into it so that if you wanNA sound fancy, we referred to that freezing as. Simply. Frozen. So quietly frozen basically freezes. In like a period of inactivity.

"The artists culture can basically be summed up by five words. Were what they liked to call their five constance which are variables that never change and define who they are today and help us make decisions about their future and in today's episode you'll get to hear not only from Joe the CEO but from some of the employees of RT S. Tell you what it's like to work there why you should consider them. As an employer of choice artists has a flat leadership structure which empowers their self managed teams to succeed and they expect a lot from each other but they give more in return and the power of playfulness helps them form a strong bond fulfill very serious commitment which means to do everything in their power to never let each other down okay. My name is Jonathan Currently working on a front end project so ram front engineer working with react J s well having flat management means the to me that you're not afraid to go and talk to people about ideas and changes that might you think could be could influence or or changed the way that we do work here but in this case you can bring ideas to the table that you normally maybe wouldn't really bring up or wouldn't be considered in another environment. My name is Erin and I've been at our worry year and a half and I'm a front end developer so I feel like everybody is treated with respect that everybody gets a chance to put in their input and their opinions without kind of being made to feel like they're or that their opinion is not as important as somebody who's in say a product management position. When I started I was really kind of insecure with my ability level. I was really scared to ask for help. And just you know. Eventually I got to a point where I had to and everybody was just always willing to help and I never felt like they were looking down on me or judging me or making me feel like. I was any less than than so for this. Next artist. Constant I googled the term workplace politics and that search bound five hundred thirty two million results. Now people worked anywhere for five minutes. I probably don't have to tell you that office politics are corporate. Politics is a major issue because the individual who manipulates their working relationships generally consumes time and resources for their own gain and really no one else's but jokes sing founder and CEO of artists. Labs Rejects Office politics in fact if you go to work with artists. Your input isn't just encouraged. It's actually required. We talk less and do more. We're builders would be worse right and when you look at people who are typically wanted to get shit. Don are in big corporations and other companies big companies where we actually ninety percent of the time. You're strategizing thinking you're thinking about big grand ideas. But you're not actually doing things for us. We're builders we want to do things and we want to do this. Pastor better. The other piece is important is when we talk about office. Politics argument is where we don't tolerate any politics in my definition politics. Means you go in. You're trying to get certain things done that. You want you basically using your relationship. You're leveraging your relationship with our accessibility to to seen her boss to get things that you want done may not be in the interest in a bigger interest of the company or the project that you're and be don't allow that and and that kind of stems from having no BS policy at Tokyo's Janin Lindenberg business systems analysts and Project Management Project Manager. You know I think you get called on your BS as fast as it comes out and so if you're willing to Take that it's it's good but it creates a lot more communication better communication Encourages people to just try new things and we also don't a lot of time you just get right to the heart of it Communication is very quick and effective In allows you to accomplish a lot more than a day learning. It's where they all just figure it out. It's a part of their constant difficult problems. Energize the people at Artie yes. It fuels their growth as they search for answers and they consider themselves to be teachers and students in the same day and when they see a solution but it might be outside of their comfort zone. They always default to saying yes. My Name's Justine Boutwell. Software engineer doing mostly back in development. I've worked with a similar team. Offer years here specifically I worked with a guy named Mike. Jackson probably learned the most from a few years younger than me. Different totally different path to get here right at. I went traditional for years college and just kind of was on the path the whole time and he graduated high school and didn't really know anyone to do and then ended up here and He has a different attitude than I do. A good attitude which is more like I want. I want to solve the problem. Anyway I can. I tend Ed feel like I'm. I'm a little old school insensitive. I I used what I notice the problem in a little slower to adapt. Anyway I feel like he constantly teaches me to. Don't get stuck in your ways. So you know he'd be someone specifically call out. The Employees Artists Take Pride in their craft. Because they're builders and building is a constant art. Their solutions have elegant exteriors. And the code is just as beautiful under the. Hood. They're naturally born builders who are really agnostic about the technology. As long as a result is awesome. My name is Natalie. I work as a salesforce developer. So build salesforce customisations.

"In washington. I'm Kimberly Adams in for David Brancaccio. Traders came back to the markets today faced with well pretty much what they left behind at the start of the holidays ongoing trade disputes, a partial government shutdown concerns over interest rates plus new data that add to concerns. Global growth is slowing down. Susan Schmidt is head of US equities at Aviva investors. Good morning. Good morning. We had some new numbers out today, especially on global manufacturing. What those tell us. The China's manufacturing data was a little bit softer than people expected. It wasn't so much softer that I think it's a cause for concern. But the market does seem to be reacting negatively to it and concerned it brings back to light the issue of global trade. And where are we with our trade tariffs and situation with China in our negotiations? Should this be sign of global trade slowing and trade in China slowing down the problem? So. It does cause some concern. I think people are going to be focused on that. And you know, in terms of this these batches of data that we're seeing that may be a little bit down. We're probably going to see a lot of that. Because the global economy is slowing down. How can we put these numbers into context? If you're the average person it's important to remember that over cycle things. Go up things go down things can't keep going at a very strong rate. There are ebbs and flows to the economy. So if we're seeing one of those ads and things do start to slow down that's natural progression of the economy. We wanna make sure that healthy along the way I think that the market because it has so much uncertainty in so many different things that are of concern right now, the market is reacting aggressively to all of these remember to look to the long-term. It's the overall trends that matter not just one particular data point, Susan Schmidt is head of US equities at Aviva investors. Thank you. Thank you.
