Can the Midwest expect more derechos?
"That durant show that tour across Iowa and Illinois August tenth flattened as much as fourteen million acres of cropland seventy to one hundred plus mile an hour winds blew down trees and power lines more than half a million islands lost power some for more than a week. The word the ratio means straight ahead in. Spanish these massive straight line wind events travel more than two hundred and fifty miles and produce wind gusts over. Seventy five miles an hour. Why is the Upper Midwest climatological hotspot for these massive windstorms that howl for hundreds of Miles Victor Seaney is a professor with Northern Illinois University specializing in severe storms. Hi Victor Welcome to climate cast. Thanks for having me on. Paul what stands out to you about that August tenth Rachel probably the number of wind reports that we had over seventy five miles per hour usually when these jobs occurred you. Can get widespread fifty to sixty mile per hour winds. But as we saw in several cities in Eastern, Iowa in Northern Illinois and even into the Chicago land area, this particular day Joe was producing winds in excess along its path of seventy five miles per hour. Obviously, the wind speed gets higher. So does the damage we all know about Tornado Alley and there's also a higher donate show frequency there but the radio frequency is Also high here in the Upper Midwest and the southern Great Lakes right it is an actually if you had to pick one city on the map that experiences more durations than anywhere else in the United States, it would be sort of Rockford Illinois Northern Illinois here is really ground zero for the shows and it really goes back to the ingredients that you need in order to get these types of long live windstorms we've. Had some historic data shows in the Upper Midwest? The Boundary Waters Blow Down Fourth of July nineteen ninety nine is something people here in Minnesota remember what is it about the summertime atmosphere over the Upper Midwest? That's conducive to durant chose well, for those of us who live up here in the summer we know it's the heat and humidity, and of course, you have heat and humidity present on many days in the summertime. But what really differentiates from a direct show, Dave versus a normal thunderstorm day are these bigger disturbances that moved through the atmosphere and a lot of vertical wind shear strong jetstream overhead that all comes together to create a very favorable atmosphere for these rages. The bulk of evidence seems to suggest that climate change doesn't show strong links to the intensity of d'auray chose why is that? It's not that it doesn't show strong relationships is. That it's sort of unknown in that we have a lot of errors right now with our experiments in the models that we have that can project into the future the potential changes. Our best guess right now is that the amount of days that we're going to have in the future that having this extreme heat and humidity will increase, but it's sort of unclear if that's GONNA translate to more of these types of Drake Joe. Windstorms is there any evidence that Rachel climatology could shift northward as the climate warms there are certainly studies out there that show northward shift in what we call the mid latitude jetstream and these types of phenomenon in theory should shift with that northward shifting jet. Again, these are attribution type of studies that will need to be retested in the future and continue to be tested with new data before I think we can say anything. More robust about what we're going to expect with these types of storms. I don't think there's a rating system for Rachel's how would you rate that one that crossed Iowa into Illinois on August tenth this particular Drake Shift you had to ask me is probably one intend to one in fifteen year event across the Midwest Professor Victor Jen, Seaney with Northern Illinois University. Thanks so much for being on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.
American Airlines suspends service to 15 U.S. cities
"American Airlines will suspend service to 15 small cities after federal aid runs out at the end of September. The list includes Springfield and also debut Kiowa were joined by Joe Schwieterman, professor of public services and director of the Chatting Institute at DePaul. Jo. What is American Airlines doing here? Yes, it is a big story. The AH cares. Actor aspiring October 1st had provisions there. Lies weren't allowed to pull out of markets except on very rare conditions. The airlines come in good faith kept a service. But after October 1, the money is gone. And there's a point now you know the Congress not beating go after labor. They just can't sit back and wait for the second stimulus bill because if ah Funding falls through you know the Ah will be much tougher to cut the schedule. So for people in those communities than they're in a difficult spot here because that air travel may never come back. You have been saying that the smaller parts really, We're in a tough spot that kind of a 12 punch that the regional jets that the big airlines operate Delta United Americans tend to be business travel focused on that market is really weak, so those those flies are being cut. And then they have a lot of Ah, service by Allegiance and frontier, which may just be two or three times a week till the Florida so forth. It's tough to get those going with the market being so weak and so Ah, you know, Rockford, Ah, ah Moline, Springfield Champagne. They're all feelings of pain right now. When it comes, though, to the airlines, they're in a tough spot as well. Just trying to get some response. It respects just stay solvent. And so that's one of the reasons I imagine they're thinking about this. You know, things are beginning to pick up again, and it's not altogether negative picture. The load factor of numbers He's filled last month was 48%, which isn't Too bad. That's night day above above April, and I think we are starting to see Ah little bit of life in the industry. But I can tell you that the August rebound that we all expected to come kind of petered out. There's going to be Ah, ah, slow process in a bitching to see what happens to Thanksgiving bookings. That's going to be a big story this year
How NBA players are using the Oura smart ring to warn of coronavirus
"What exactly does the Smart Ring Do, and and let's start with what its original purpose is, and what it was marketed for initially sure, so the has been around for two years and never got to review. It was one of these things I meant to, but it is a it is. A fitness rang health ring much. Much like the ring made by motive years ago, it checks heart rate it contract sleep it contract motion and activity, but it also tracks temperature. The temperature sensor is the interesting part because there aren't any other wearables that do that, but it's not necessarily the temperature sensing. You think it can't give you like an actual body. Reading of like you know what hundred point seven or whatever? It's a relative temperature that's. Night to show temperature fluctuations plus or minus degrees Fahrenheit. That's mentioned. Just show your changes in your baseline, so to speak, and so how is it being used as a early warning system for covid nineteen? Now been working with a couple of research teams UCSF has a study that you can opt into in the APP. That's been going on for a while. That's asking people to log You know their own moods and symptoms to try to study correlations. That's similar to what other companies are doing trying to see. If there could a way could help connect to symptoms and krona virus, but those researchers are seeing that you can with with the temperature capabilities see signs of illness symptoms a couple of days in advance of when you would normally perceive them. That could line up with the couple of day. Lead time that people believe might might be you know a symptomatic spread period now I'm not a another doctor. My research scientist from talking to researchers working with this and I've been I've been really curious about what that could actually mean. Another research team at Rockford Neuroscience Institute West Virginia University. Has Been Looking at trying to create a health forecasting APP that they have in place that they're using with with frontline workers and seeing if you could provide you know a couple of day pre forecast of whether you're likely to be getting sick. And built on a similar idea of using temperature mainly as a way to pick up ways that you're you're readings are hinting towards the sign of sickness, but not necessarily a sign of coronavirus, just a sign of sickness general from what they perceive. They claim it's like eighty nine percent. Accurate in predicting so far signs of upcoming sickness that will be when you get a coronavirus. You know that's when you get tested. That's when you would maybe. Go into work in some future world where we go back to work, and you know the reason why folks might be more familiar, we're now is because NBA players are supposed to be wearing them as they. Get set to kick off their their special. BUBBLE SEASON DOWN IN FLORIDA. Yes so NBA players have been wearing this of chosen this this wearable. OPT in program and. Coaches that that can look at the stats get kind of a distilled subset of the stats that aware of the ring, now like the consumer version would get so I see all these different pieces of information. There is a respiration. There's heart rate variability temperature these are estimated again. A couple of those key factors of four of them were pulled out and turn into a risk score. That idea is that if you seem like you're, you're scoring significantly high on that, you would Pull yourself out. Get Kobe test, and that type of thing. But you. You get something like that on the on the order APP itself. There's a score, the kind of shows like a whole bunch of factors and talks about like you know Harry feeling today. It sometimes it correlates with our. I feel sometimes a dozen so. Same thing asleep scores but it will let me remind me of like how I'm sleeping. And how much I'm you know? Both bedtime in some element of restiveness, how much I can do about that is is the other thing, but that the NBA is using again is kind of a pre screening tool for those who were bubbling Brian. So you're obviously not an NBA player, Sarah Scott, but how how are you using this? And how does that differ from what they're using this for? As as Early Warning System, yeah, so again as curious and I've not been doing any of those those things and I'm not using any advance APPS. I'm just using the consumer version and seeing what it's like so I just live with it. I've been wearing three months since late April. All the time and what have been noticing is that a lot of ways I don't notice anything because I. Just live my life, and then I check the APP in Awhile, and it says okay. This is sleeping and I tried to make myself sleep better, but like a lot of sleep tracking things. I don't act on those things as well. They should still go to bed super late, even knowing do. But the temperature thing is mostly been fluctuating around the same thing, a little down a little, if I who knows I, haven't knock on wood. I haven't gotten sick over this period. If I had actually gotten sick or perceived something that might be kind of interesting so hard to tell in that vacuum, but. I just wear. It will give some testing with it and I'm curious. I don't think it's it wouldn't replace a fitness watch because it's not as detailed as that and the one thing that the ring is, it's totally invisible with how it shows stuff. It's this nettle ring with no readouts doesn't buzz no buttons and you'd have to check the APP and also if you don't know if it's running out of batteries on the seven day battery life. Until you check the APP where you get a notification from your phone, so there's times where just went dead, and then I had like five days of no readings because I forgot to charge it, which is not ideal if you want a wearable, that's going to help provide early detection for people in a future workplace so that that's one challenge with it. The other thing is talking to the researchers and thinking about what would we all be doing with this? The NBA is bubbling now in a world where you go back to work and have some sort of you know wearable screening tool, which is what people are imagining. Its Eye, contact tracing unit everyone to opt in. And that means rock varner sciences. He was also trying to build towards. Maybe eventually a ways like at that would show ideally like where signs of potential illness popping up through crowdsourcing, but much contact tracing that requires people to participate and right now you still have questions. People are still refusing to wear masks so I mean. The. The degree to which you get people to all agree to wear wearable. Seems extremely optimistic and then when you deal with things like public. It adds all sorts of other complications so an office. Could all agree to do it? But how do you? What do you do in the larger world? I think those are questions. It still hadn't been worked out because the systems are only as good as everyone else's reporting, and just to be clear that this is not a cheap option. This is not cheap solution. Right? Like how much does this thing go for? And how easy is it the by one? The pretty easy to buy, and they're not that cheap there four hundred dollars so. Yeah the falls line with with. Your standard good smartwatch or Apple Watch or thing like that, but you know it's made like titanium plastic on the interior and It's it feels nice, but that's a lot of money, and I think some people will really like it because it's convenient. Enter praying and not a watch Some of the researchers also pointed out that a doctor's and frontline workers don't like wearing rings because they're not good that the germs could get in there. LEXIE! Shoes she's wearing. It didn't like it because of swelling and for exercise, the ring didn't feel ideal was uncomfortable for her and you have to get fitted. You have to get a particular size on the ring. They send you a sizing kit, so if your size changes, that's not great. A watch is adjustable, so there's a lot of things that are weird about it, but I think. It opens interesting questions about what temperature could possibly do. On, wearables in I'm really curious, what will pops up after this? It seemed like from your experience that made you call it somewhat invisible and the data I mean how ultimately how useful is this data? Have you used it to change your life for because you sort of hinted that that you looked at the data? then. It hasn't really changed anything, but like ultimately is this useful? In terms of changing my life. No, because you're right. You know this reminds me of like the talk. I had with with Kevin Lynch on Apple. Watch and apple could be making a lot of decisions on this to why they're only doing. Certain elements of sleep tracking. You know they're just doing the bedtime. Wake up is they claim that the rest is not actionable? Now they call so it could be that apple isn't fully develop the rest of the tools to their liking. But I think that's true in terms of when you get sleep scores like on this. What do I really do with like that? I didn't rest well enough you. There's really not much you can. Do you try to get to bed earlier? Maybe try to take it easy. Me could try to like take on yourself, and that's what the APP recommends like. You know you're reading the scores. Great. Go do it today, or it's not great. Take care a little bit today and I think that's interesting. So in that sense did change the way I would perceive some days I go. Hey, I'm not a great readiness score. just be a little easy on myself. What I know that just waking up and just feeling like crap. Probably you know I think some of these things correlate with how you would normally feel. Feel anyhow, if you're a self aware, but I think the getting back to work thing, the bigger question which is like you know I hate to even leave with that in the story, but it's what people think about about the possible Kobe awareness. I can't yeah for me I'm I you know I? Pi- blood pressure. I'm not going to put myself at risk going out. Out in the world, even if there's a sliver of it and then if I don't know that the APP, the rest of the world is behaving in a responsible way. Then I don't want to put myself there and that doesn't have to do other a wearing ring. It's like so the hard part. There was a halo over everyone's head. That said you know yes I. I am using the device I. Am I am part of your network? Then that's bubbling I. think that would be. That might be a different story, but again. None of these data things that these research programmes are absolute yet. These are all experiments, and all the researchers things a tip of the iceberg, so look how long people have been researching sleep and possible signs of. OF APNEA. or All. These research programmes with wearables they can go on for years and the NBA is very much an experiment. We don't know at all how that's going to turn out

"rockford" Discussed on Pop Culture Continuum
"Khan Robinson so perfect. He's was worthy. Many funny things about this show. What we do in shadows highly recommend. Did you see the episode with Vanessa Bayer as the emotional vampire and they were yeah. And I love her to. She was one of the only good cast. Members of Saturday night live in recent years. They've all been women the good ones. I wish she would get more roles like she was in Brooklyn. Nine, nine and stuff but. I think they she was partly get well. She was great at Brooklyn Nine Nine I. Think they kind of had wasted a chance for to hard to be even better, but anyway. Yes, she was great and he is very funny. Yeah, so I'M GONNA recommend and I'm assuming that's what you're talking about, but Space Force Yup. I haven't finished yet, but. We finally finished it. John Malkovich's like. Kills it every line. He cracks me up more and more as it goes on. And before it came out, it was like Oh my God. This is getting really terrible reviews and I was really well. That sucks, but then I watched it. I was like I. Don't know what they're talking about. I didn't know about the views. That's too bad. It's really funny. I'd ever everybody in the cast. Stephen, Steve Carell playing this kind of Michael. Scott, but kind of much much much much different. Yeah, and and much better overall Michael Scott a better person I mean Oh. Yeah, well I think they made Michael Scott into a better person eventually, but yeah. Well more rather character from the get go in this show and it's just. Great deals is really hitting. Did you watch Amazon? Upload Oh, I watched a couple. Episodes haven't haven't finished I like that one too, and that's also from Greg, Daniels. It's kind of a I'll add that ellen as recommendations kind of. It kind of comedic look at an idea from Black Mirror I'm sure it's an idea from over Sifi can upload your. Your your. Your personality consciousness. Your consciousness it's it's pretty interesting and again good cast, good acting, but yeah speech forces great. Yeah, and it's I mean I always appreciate it too because Steve. Carell is one of the creators of Space Force with Greg Daniels and Always appreciate it when. These people give like the best and funniest lines to other actors like Ben Schwartz and John Malkovich get most of the really funny lines in the show. And I love that like Lisa Kudrow is just in jail. There's no explanation. SPOIL IT I didn't know I thought they were gonNA explain it some point Oh sorry. Well I mean, but just I'm just saying maybe they do explain it, but like when when she first shows up in jail, she's just in jail. There's no back story. I do think it's funny, but I don't especially like it. Her being in jail. Not being in jail, but the jail jokes that they do just like. Sit back and enjoy because you can't do anything else. It's just yeah. It's it's grossly. As the only party show, I have not aside from what you said I do that. They do that without any explanation Leeza. Any, but I just find those jokes a little bit of putting. Yeah I do too. I mean it. That's very pro forma and unnecessary I think. It does go somewhere the jail stuff so I'd I have enjoyed twenty. NEWSOM, his awesome in it to yes. As far as I've seen kind of a smaller role, but she kills it every time. She's on screen in this great cats Fred Willard. Nobody plenty in it. The whole the whole teach when she staff I went more of that Patrick warburtons awesome. I think from Jim Carey Dietrich, did you? Did you barber debate or something like that? And the dude from the bucket back I don't know how to say his name Dan back or something. Funny People that guy like he must not even have to audition for this kind of role. Well. The Guy. I found it. Larry Joe Campbell and the guy that leads the Coast Guard I've seen him other things and he's always just just quietly. Back, yeah apparently he was in according to Jim and I. I don't know if he was funny in that, but he's funny. Another things you know who else is funny I think his name's Edward. Oh Yang which is the only reason I know is because I. keep seeing every time. Turn on, Amazon. It's like new releases and he's got some. Stand up special, but Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy. Yang yes yes so who plays Chang on the show he gets funnier to as it goes on, so yeah, I thought it was. I thought it was great like I. Don't I don't know what does bad reviews are based on. Maybe people only saw the first episode, which as we said was stumped down in many other things like I. Episodes are difficult, but even then I laughed at a couple of things. Let things that I liked that they. They made the. Steve Carell character married I guess something like that kind of incompetent, but also like with a little sliver of competence in there like with this thing about the umbrella. I thought that was. It wasn't all madness. There was some method to it right. It carries through it. You can't have A. Unless you're doing just a complete satire. You can't have a five star general general be completely incompetent, and and so not and I love his. His war with the with the other general, the dude from the Americans I don't know if you stand that show, but. Anyway yeah those are my recommendation. That's my recommendation. For People Watch. What was my recommendation? I forget what we do in the shadows, Seattle. Have you seen the movie I have yeah sought before the series came out because it had A..

Package passed by Congress during the public health crisis. But this speed has come with some significant mistakes. Npr's Tim Mack has been talking to the families of dead. Americans who got corona virus. Relief Checks Bob. Meduse father passed away in December. So Bob who lives in Houston notified the V. A. and the Social Security Administration that his father had passed in order to stop payments from them and those were halted but on April fifteenth. Bob Who is a cosigner on? His Dad's account noticed a payment in the amount of twelve hundred dollars it was e- Corona Virus Relief Payment from the IRS. I feel bad that this money is sitting in my dad's account. I don't know what to do with it. And there are people out there that need it badly and That bothers me quite a bit. I I wish I knew what to do with it but I don't Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said one week ago that any payments to the deceased would be a mistake and should be returned but this is reasonable questions than answers this mass confusion. That's Janet Holds Plan of the Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center. There's been no official guidance. As to how in this instance people should return the money that was received for their loved ones. The IRS does not typically track information on the deceased in America but other parts of the government such as the Social Security Administration. Do it appears that there was no cross-referencing before checks went out the scope of the problem could be in the millions the CDC estimates that two point eight million Americans died in two thousand eighteen for example and there are signs that people who have died more than two years ago are receiving payments Karen McClure of Collins Colorado experienced this firsthand. Mother passed away in twenty eighteen. But in April of this year she received a payment of twelve hundred dollars. The government is being very reactive instead of proactive to this situation which I find frustrating Mark Iverson is he former. Irs Commissioner serving from two thousand and three to two thousand and seven he told NPR that the irs has generally been doing a good job. But there's a real trade off of speed versus accuracy in the processing. He says the people in this situation should rely on official guidance people need to rely on information from. Irs Dot Gov. But that's not so easy when it comes to this topic Theresa Wilmot a seventy one year old in Rockford Illinois has been trying to do just that. She lost her partner of thirty nine years. Frank diker just two months ago. Last month he received the payment. I'm copying with frank stuff pretty well at this point. I'm not over it. I probably will never be over it but it didn't. That part didn't bother me. I'm I'm probably angrier. The government for sending out a payment to somebody who's deceased Theresa has been trying without success to find guidance online from the IRS. To Send the money back so I went online to the address on the letter and looked for a long time trying to find some way that I could. I send the payment back and I couldn't find that sort look for a way to contact somebody at the IRS or treasury or whatever to return the payment and I couldn't find that NPR did not fair much better than Teresa after multiple requests the IRS directed questions to the Treasury Department. The Treasury Department pledged to have an answer by Tuesday. Morning as of this airing the Treasury Department has not answered questions about what steps the IRS is taking to address this problem or what to do if a deceased loved one received a payment

What to make of Blackhawks moves on NHL trade deadline day
"And talk a little bit more about what the Blackhawks did we bring in Charlie a room only autos from Anna corona hotline from N. B. C. sports Chicago Charlie how are you tonight Fred you nailed my last name they're not a lot of people can do that on the first try well I've been I've said it three times during the show so I try to get it right it is actually the more you look at it the more it is exactly like it's spelled sell it all but that is I'm I'm sure I'm sure you've got a letter from cap though well yeah well I in everything we've all got lessons from cap have only let's be honest yeah yeah we generally did did the Blackhawks get get done what they wanted to do today I think the goal and Stan Bowman even said this in a conference call it should basically recruit some of those graphics that they gave up for the end you're salty on it and try to get a you know they got a goal tender in return in a defenseman prospect but I think if you put them on a lie detector test or some truth serum okay perfect probably would have loved to get a first round pick out of out of today is that the reality is the market wasn't really to their favorite like six six first round picks removed in the month of February and neither one of those picks removed for rental so the Blackhawks moved to other youth expiring USA then they got a second round pick in the end plus prospects and then a third round pick forgot to send in a little bit underwhelming but you know that's what the market dictated it's interesting you bring that up Charlie because I guess the question at this point that is do you think the hawks waited too long in determining whether or not they were to sell it because obviously they had a little run there you know in the end of the at the end of December and January what it felt like they were getting hot do you think they maybe put too much stock in the fact that they were playing well but you know at the same time they they were still on the outside looking in it when when you're finally you know got around to the trade deadline here yeah it it's a good point and you wonder if the the blackouts could have gotten more for robin Lehner if they had treated him earlier but at the same time went when they come out of that bye week and they come out with a big win against Arizona like if they had it really had quite off type vibes where this team was close to knocking on the door and then you go on that five game western Canada trip and if you take care of business there like you're you're probably gonna be about a playoff spot if you pick up six seven point six or eight points on that trip and and that the fact they only picked up a few things started to spiral then obviously the we saw a lot of trade happened last week where a lot of defenseman got moved in and you wondered if the Blackhawks were gonna pull the trigger on America if it's been deleted get out in front of that but they stayed patient and I don't know if they were trying to package and Eric Gustafson with another asset like a robin letter to try all the packaging of the return and try to get that first round pick that they're covering but unfortunately they weren't able to make it happen Charlie you mentioned letter there and I think a lot of hawks fans are wondering he he will reportedly he was willing to consider a three year deal with the hawks now you know I don't know if we've seen confirmation of that report but it's out there that robin Lehner was willing to potentially talk a three year deal with the hawks do you think that something that was truly in their interest or do you think they just don't want to be locked up long term with robin Lehner due to maybe a quirky history to say the least well I I'm not sure about it because robin Lehner is on record saying that he didn't want to take a discount like you felt like you wanted to be paid market value and and he deserves that what whatever he was asking for he deserves what he wants and if the Blackhawks were gonna offer him he offered what he wanted like he had every right to take it to and and has every right to take it to the summer and get exactly what he's looking for the the fact that if you know the Hawkins did offer a three year deal letter would have been willing to take lasted it do a three year deal I feel like the team would have pulled the trigger on it because I I don't know necessarily if they were looking to try a lot of money and term to to robin letter because that's just not exactly how they operate in it we see all around the NHL now teams are very reluctant to give big contracts to goaltender than in the Florida Panthers are seeing it right now they they find Sir David Gonski two an eight year contract worth ten point five million dollars and he has been performing this season so I think maybe that's also what is scaring off the hawks and wanted to have that type of security with the goaltender another couple minutes where's Charlie Roumeliotis from the Blackhawks insider at NBC sports Chicago the guys they get back for a for a letter is is that yes they need to get some names back or is to Bangor to be their back up for the rest of the season or what you know what's going on yeah I imagine so I read in Markham Sudan will be the Blackhawks is back up you know barring any injuries and I know the Blackhawks do have calling deleon Kevin Lincoln in downtown Rockford who have both been playing really well like Kevin like that had a really good start to the season that now his play has tailed off Collin Delia really struggled at the beginning of the year and now he's been really good so if you have two young goaltenders in Rockford but I imagine now comes through and it's probably gonna be grooms here said to either be the backup going forward at least for the rest of the season and then we'll see beyond this year Charlie do you think a Jonathan Tay's will finish his career with the Blackhawks there's been rumblings are speculation mostly from fans that you know he could be somebody down the line the hawks might consider moving if they they were able to get a hall for him but to me Jonathan tapes just seems like the type of player who gently down the Blackhawks want retiring in a Blackhawks Jersey yes absolutely and I I don't blame Patrick Kane Jonathan three Duncan Keith those core players I don't blame them for being frustrated like they want to win in Chicago but the the problem is if they don't want to go somewhere else to win another ring like their soul that and they have no movement clauses in their contracts read that they want to spend the rest of your career here in Chicago and they want to win the Stanley Cup again in Chicago so I don't see that it man it would be if thirteen is out of date senior retired Black Hawk that it wouldn't feel right if they if they went somewhere else Charlie one last quick one for you what is the biggest need for the hawks this offseason to try and get them back on track and into the playoff conversation next year yes hi it's tough because you kind of want to see how this you know they've been battered by injuries particularly that of the blue line with Calvin Han and Brent Seabrook and then Andrew Shaw you know I would I would sail and it is those guys need to get healthy first and then you want to see how your developments are going with Adam vocalist and Kirby dach but to me ideally like you need you need another top six winger like you need another top six four they have Jonathan Tate and Kirby docking Dylan Strome and and obviously Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat but they don't have really that photo type scoring winger that can help balance out the lines and I'm not saying that the Blackhawks have it all made on their depth on their defensive group because they tell but you look at the reality is they have five guys under contract for at least the next two seasons after that and that's not even including Adam vocalist and potentially Ian Mitchell so I want to say a top four defenseman but it just didn't seem feasible because all the they have all these guys tied up Charlie I know it's been a long day we appreciate jump around for a few minutes no problem guys thanks for having me

The Orphan Train
"Today the orphan train the little boys stepped off the orphan from train in Rockford Oregon hundred and five years ago. He had no luggage just the clothes he wore. He spoke only German. Someone had pinned a card art on his jacket. At said he was six years old. His name was Charles. Frederick before the day was over the boy would be loaded into a covered wagon with other children who've been the ship West from the crowd at New York City. Orphanages Frederick and his companions were headed for durant where they would be parceled out to farm families the Children Aldrin were part of a social experiment called placing out between eighteen. Fifty three nine thousand nine hundred twenty nine trainloads of destitute and homeless children ruinous many as two hundred fifty thousand in all were transported from New York City Boston and other cities on the eastern sea coast to cities and towns along along the burgeoning rail. Lines in America's Middle West and West eventually large missile West cities also established orphan trains in exchange for good homes. uh-huh children many of whom have been living on the streets and eating from garbage cans were offered to farmers housewives businessmen as indentured workers workers. Some children were lucky may went to families that adopted them and treated them with love for others. Like Charles. Frederick results were mixed. This Irish family took him my dad. Franklin Frederick Seventy seven says he was just someone to work on the farm although the place you now program operated in the United States for about seventy five years until recently it was little known part of history of American childhood. It wasn't a tone nineteen seventy eight. When orphan train a fictional account of first orphan train writers was published? The curiosity about the system began now. There's a national organization the station to help descendants of train writers find their roots nonfiction. Books have been written and organizations across the country like the Illinois genealogical society are gathering records about orphan train riders the orphan trains stopped included Rockford Freeport Rochelle Oregon in all ninety. Children were taken in by Oregon families. The babies would ride in train coaches. The older kids were just stuck in boxcars. They orphanage Operators couldn't afford to put them all coaches citizens and towns along. The rail lines learned that the orphan train was headed their way. When an orphan print agent posted handbills put notices in the local paper in the case of children from Catholic orphanages like Frederick and his companions priests in parishes along the way were notified in advance and asked to lineup homes? When the train arrived towns people wanting to child would come to examine them and make a choice? People would poke their arms luck their muscles they would pick out kids. They wanted if any were leftover. They would go back on the train and move onto the next stop. Many children fell through the cracks. Though they were mistreated malnourish overworked on the other hand. For at least half it was a good experience. They had opportunities opportunities they would not have had if they stayed where they were. They may not even have survived

Just trying to go back to the job border figure out what to do next.

So I'm haven't got the details, yet, I didn't know when I when I need to be where I need to be, and I'll be there on another city turn out in a while. How crazy was that parade in? It looked like gotshall Marcus all he wore the lampshade for that day. Yeah. It was a good time. You know you can tell that it was only ten o'clock in the morning. So, so like eleven PM at night. We had those during just I think the pros only supposed to be about two and a half hours ended up being above five just because we couldn't move and millions of millions of people into this to be in the middle of that, which is countless people do that. You can't even see you can't streets. You can't see people climbing up light poles and buildings and just the most extremely spans over of ever had in my life and something that I remember I mean Toronto is supposed to be a hockey town me like what you guys have done there. And you've been there for three years now. I mean, like you, you guys really are well embraced in that city, aren't you? Oh, yes, it's growing, I think that I think that the notion that is a hockey town. That's probably still true. You can't just expect legacy of, of what I mean. To the country of Canada, not just Toronto, but it's a diversity man, and people love that they love the raptors and franchise has been around for about twenty four years now. So they've had their time to to get excited. Be disappointed be let down be happy and just to our flagpole at the top is especially not only for us but for the city so you told us what co- is like, what's Drake like I mean, does he have real rivalries with other players around the league? Yeah. Probably I think most of those that you see are so you know it's just it's just friendly. Tribes talk where he does. I do respect that he doesn't take it easy on, you know, those guys like from the warriors, he's actually cool with them in real life, but they couldn't tell the game you live Pavitt good. Good, old fashioned TriStar episode militias. But I'm sure some guys in the ticket take it to heart grown up in Rockford. Did you like the cubs of the socks better? You know, I I'm not a huge baseball fan myself. But what I did watch. I think will you was it wouldn't affect one four five like that. Five like five top of my life off the bandwagon SOX fans for a little bit. But I went to a game and everybody five a couple of balls. And I've tapped out so I. I can't say that I'm ill or but I just like to see the city do. Well, regardless, Fred vanfleet for a few more minutes is Carmen, your co you took a pretty vicious album, and it was it was an accident, obviously. But hey that, that happens sometimes when you're amongst the trees down there. How how how bad take us through the injury? And how quickly you're able to get back on the floor. Oh, I think I've taken some south before I was, I got older brothers, and I've been some scuffles in play basketball, my tire life off his before. But that one was just out of nowhere. I didn't see it coming. And I didn't really know where it came from. And you know, obviously I went down and just try to come up airings and I can feel the remnants of my teeth, my mouth, so that's why I was pissed off laying on the ground is trying to figure out how many of us right now. So, you know, I just I thought that passing sips in my teeth trainers, we go for whatever reason. And I got hit. But I didn't know how to love one. So I a lot crown stitch me up in about ten fifteen minutes. And I try to make my way back to the court. And luckily, the team take care of business. I'd have to go back in, but it was a pretty solid out. So for days after that. And sure how exhausting is chasing Steph around all series like that. To tough as far reading the woman, join summer, so. Put the work in he's, he's one of the best to ever through it, you know, for what he does. And you know as short tasks to try to limit him. They could go on. They said a million screens for me to shoot from anywhere. Can't follow him because he's so good at draw foul, so, yes, a tough job for sure. Did you grow up pretty big bulls fan? Fan, believe it or not really fan. So I got, you know, I was in that, that part where I was too young for Mike. What the down years, and I was a kid. So there grows came. But before that I was on the Kobe fan. So I'm not a huge fan, but, you know, I did like those they're gross seems that, that went into the Easter cop whose side Rianne Kobe shack break them. Coby Coby young kid. And I really haven't said, what would it be about until I got older? Yeah. Kobe because I got a little more info statement throughout of it. When you come to Chicago do you? I mean, generally have a lot of family and friends, they make the trip down to support you. Yeah. For sure for sure I'm with tickets. So it's not as bad as it should be. But obviously immediate family. My got a big family, my brothers about their so no grandparents, and people like that come down and see this is my favorite part of year to be able to come to the United Center play, you know, as a kid growing up with the history that is in that building and not having been to the United Center, as you know, four-game until over them. I watched one bulls game as a young kid, but actually be on the floor like that is crazy. Very cool. Congrats Fred on winning and you've covered cover night, a nice little niche of yourself in this league. I think, you know, for undrafted guy, and people are pleasantly surprised at what you've lost them into so congrats on everything. And if you ever in Chicago, you're always welcome in our studio combine, say, hi, okay. All right. Thank you. Hi, fred. That's Fred vanfleet still celebrating a little bit, and get some rest, and then bachelor should be absolutely. I know Rockford Scott more than two fire trucks and McDonald's. I'm being a little bit of a smart. I love just a little bit. Like I said, I've been the big city kid given. Pretty big. Yeah, I know I know the ice rate up in rob hall. I figured with over the years. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. All right. Good stuff with Fred. Bam bleep man. He's a good talker. That was good. That was fun, shall we say Henry will cook? I'm just gonna rip Corey Crawford, and then as fighting about the draft Henry in Daytona Beach on ESPN one thousand he's all excited for the hawks draft. What's up, Henry? Each one quick question. I car if you had a chance to Queen a guy who gets more or the best thing for this upcoming draft, which would you choose go the last two years of Corey Crawford? Can we really afford another one stay on the ice? Windows clothing, quiet. When I was the second one. No, you can't trust Corey Crawford. I understand. He's a good player when healthy I understand what he does in the goal and he's the best goal, the Blackhawks probably have I understand that. But he can't be trusted. I would favor a defense. Now, I don't know the prospects will enough. I don't study this white enough, but your preferences, a defense they need defensemen. Top forty investments has not the the savior. I got news for you. Brent seabrook. Not suddenly getting younger and faster. Either is Duncan Keith, so they need defenseman in a bad way. I don't know if they're taking Turcott tonight or what they're doing. I again, I can't size up the prospects because I just don't follow it closely enough. I I don't watch college hockey. I you know, you can sit some odds, and wasn't that should pick. I don't.

He's got some hate for the marvel universe in his worst. And some love for it in his best. What's interesting? And I think what's it's tough for the general public with movie critics is that they see all these fabulous movies. They see all these terrible movies. They have I think harsher judgment than most of us have because they have to see everything. And then so a lot of the stuff that Michael really liked. And while you find a lot of those are kind of tough to find right now. Right. Is just on Hulu Roma is going to be in very few theaters. All the really great movies tend to be smaller movies that don't appeal. I guess it depends on what you mean by tough to find like in theaters. Yes. These a lot of beloved movies by critics don't open wide. Right. But if you wait then eventually, they will be streaming somewhere. Sure. And most people have some access to a lot of different streaming platforms. It might mean a subscription that you have to pay a rental. But in some ways it's easier to find things than ever to. That's true. There's more availability than ever as long as you're willing to pay the subscription fees to somewhere. All right. We gotta take quick break.

"We back. From the Rockford Illinois area. But it's new endeavor is traveling across the country. I'm very excited about it. Because again, like I ended the last segment I cannot imagine a police department as fire department without using these new tools that are available. Police chiefs. Fire chiefs the city itself. The mayor's department needs to realize how this would take a lot of stress off of the chiefs deputy chiefs, whatever it may be by having somebody like a Gary cortesy doing this work, and straightening out helping straighten out a lot of the firemen to have gone through all these things here that we we've been talking about they provide Gary just what his work provides on ongoing support. And he also develops in the organization, let's talk about this a little bit of area, why chaplain resources, so we're not talking about you one person. We're talking about you now mixing with other townsfolk close to you. But also across the country. You've had your in Illinois. You had a state and on the east coast ready contact you my correct, absolutely absolutely. I know I. I had one particular case where I spent two hours on the phone with the police officer from the east coast, and he's you spend two hours on the phone crying in that sense. You know, and letting me know that he has no one to talk to you. Because if he were to tell anybody how he's feeling it would be viewed as a sign of weakness. And in his own words, he said they would take my gun away from me take me off the streets and put out a desk. And I it's a real dilemma, and and you know, that you know from your own experience who to your trust. And who can you talk to? That's right. That's right after my shootout. And we've talked about this before the Gary after my shoot out many years ago about four or five years later still a police officer and flashback started happening to me. And again, nobody really to talk to that you can think of in your mind at the time when you're going through this. I could not go to the police department. I go I could not go sit with my chief of police. Or any friends here? Because the first thing they would do like, you just said they'd say what take my gun away and gave me give me a job inside pushing paper or something like that. And also one thing I was thinking about as you were saying. Folks. Go home, we have men we have women in these services. Okay. There's many single people that are cops and firemen that go through these things. And what I'm saying is that they go home. It's a lot of times to an empty house. All right. They may not feel comfortable talking to their mom or dad, if they're still alive, and I know myself, I wanna felt comfortable talking to another cop because you're supposed to be he me on type of a person. Okay. And so we need to realize that there's people that don't have anybody to talk to not as well as well as feeling comfortable doing it. Right. Right. That's right. Yeah. You have to be very careful because you know, you mentioned that, you know, pushing papers at the desk. I mean, that's not why you become a cop. So you can push papers at a desk, and you know, everyone has an agenda, and let's face it as a police officer. And you know, you basically could trust very few people you had to be I'm trusting you had to be income. Control incharge all the time. And you know, you can't go home and dump this on your fear loved ones. That's not what they're there for. Your wife and kids don't need to hear about this, your wife and kids wanna know that you're going to be on time for the birthday party. They don't care about the brains that were all over the road from a crime scene. A tough spot. Yeah. No. I it certainly is any any people that are listening out there that have any kind of family, whether it's a cousin whether it's your son or daughter involved in these services, it's it's very tough. This is not just okay. You did a good job. All right. Thank you very much move on to the next scene, husband and wife fight or move onto this little small fire. You take care of it doesn't work like that. Folks. There's there's this this stuff is ever lasting still now. And and my my wife surprised sometimes we'll be in the kitchen and something will bang very loudly. And how jump is. So say what's another? I said I just told you know, I don't get into it much. I say I just don't like the loud noises like that. Sometimes I just, you know, for my own reasons you say. And that happens to many people in my shoot ourselves over thirty years ago. So there's certain things that always stay with you. But are you excited about where this is going? You're talking about getting the communities that can lead to work together as a team, and and like you said. You have to have a chief officers. You gotta have shift commander's counselors, critical critical incident stress management teams fire commissions trustees. This is not just Gary Cortez going out there. This is a whole bunch of people joining together and I'm anxious and I'm excited about hearing your updates on these all the time. Absolutely. It's very exciting. I'm starting to see, you know, people take this seriously, and, you know, regrettably in my experience, it seems like it's the fire service that is taking more of a proactive role. It's a little bit tougher for the police department. That says, you know, there's unique dynamics for law enforcement. It's a little bit different. When we talk about the fire service, but but both are on the same team working for the same goal. It just serve the community for the good of the community. And you know, if we can get by and if we can get upper level administrators to buy into this and to realize the value, that's where we need to start this. This has to be taken seriously. And I think we're seeing that we've got, you know, our police officers and firefighters are educated like never before with with, you know, all kinds. Kinds of access to the world through the internet and social media, and and and they're becoming more and more aware of things at the police officer in your day didn't know about there is no internet when you were a patrolman today. That'd be we saw Gary. And you know, this always saw at least in my area was a chaplain that was for the police officers, and I'm sure he could have been called. Okay. Does. There was no publicity about it. Or? No, no, no knowledge of you can call them and talk to them when I don't know anybody that did that's just neat. But this was a fellow came to came to the police department before every shift on Ash Wednesday to give the ashes or things are probably. Be the person at the death of a retiree or somebody like that either the police or fire departments. So I could trust me. Folks. This stuff was not out there because one thing chaplain Cortez's doing is promoting the awareness and the education and second of all providing the ongoing support that that's what that means. Correct me if I'm wrong faster. Yeah. Just because you meet somebody at the scene and talk to them the next day that does not end with many of these people, right? Oh, no, no, no. We we do provide ongoing support round the clock every day, not only for victims of the crimes and other tragedies for the first responders themselves, and that is better to the way to succeed with this is to become a part of their world get involved in the world become a part of it. Make sure they know that you are a resource that is a vailable round the clock every day. And I've had police officers. Tell me don't stop contacting don't sending me the text messages. You don't know how much those words mean to me keep reaching out to me because it makes a difference. And that's the key right there chaplain. Not all chaplains are created equal chaplains like to chase the ambulance. And then they're done when the thrill is over they're done. But that's not the philosophy that I uphold the we get involved, we stay the course. And we develop a relationship you will let us we will develop a relationship with you and be with you for the rest of your life. If you'll let us I. I'm looking at your title here. I can't even imagine it back in my day or even not that long ago. Maybe fifteen twenty years ago behavioral health. Behavioral health nowadays. You have it, of course in the fire service next. We'll be coming up. At least your particular say will be in the police department. Goes on the behavioral health, if you sit in a a cubbyhole working for a major company, grace alt-right can be brought onto everything. So this is a it's a term. In other words, folks, where we go to our break behavioral health, the son that I never heard of back in the day behavioral health, it was kinda like back then either went to the doctor or you go with Dr. Something of that nature. So.

"Of not wanting to be there. Mixed with the feeling of like freezing up and not really being able to move from being there. And now that I would just have to go through with this, but also, you know, the coping mechanisms of, you know, as she's talking both almost editing it in my mind, but also thinking of, you know, what is the next question that I can ask as soon as she's done speaking so that I can keep this emotional honesty going. I mean, how much did you know about what was happening because he were always gone working? 'cause I hear retired pretty soon after you and him married. Right. So you weren't home that much? I was just with him. I think. I don't. I don't know what to say now. I wish I can't go over reach to again, two different rape. I is really, I don't know what to say. No, is all past. I. I will do not. I do not know. Aunt band. I've not know his aunt better spatial behind them. It was. I wish I was stronger. I wasn't. No, I. I don't know what to say. <music>. How long did you actually talk to her. About an hour and a half. Okay. I think we're done. They will not to dinner afterwards. Being drove himself to dinner and he stopped his car along the way and parked on the side of north second street, not to sit there and just reflect on the monumental thing that just happened. He stopped to get a pickup shot for his movie of downtown Rockford. In many ways. I was like emotional removed because it was like, oh, I'm just a character and the interviews, a scene, you know. And that's really the way it stayed for a long time, have not gone back to the conversation. I haven't looked at the roughage, you know, had it transcribed in his easier to look at it on paper than it was to watch the footage and that's I worked with it. I've seen the film few times since then, but yeah, I'm still very much avoidance of it. Has your mom seen the movie? Yeah, everyone saw the film before it before we pick your locked. She told me that she saw it and then we had a phone call and she said that, you know, she understands a little bit more why I was making this film, and she told me she was proud of me. So how is your relationship with your mom now? Is it any different than than before? Not really. But that doesn't mean that their conversation wasn't important or meaningful. It's just that it was a beginning, not a resolution. It was the first time he'd heard so much of her story. Eventually, it would help him see that he blamed her for what had happened to him and to deal with his feelings of guilt about that. But maybe the biggest thing that came out of it was that he saw that it wasn't denial or defensiveness that kept his mom from talking about the past. It was really guilt. I mean that wasn't like the first time that she sort of like got upset about everything that happened, but you know. I think that interview made me realize it was the first I, it was the first time I realized like her sort of being upset about the past had to do with her loving me.

"Yeah, being had suffered some pretty serious abuse when he was a kid too. I think at the time I hadn't even said it put in those stark terms. I just thought, you know, in feeling that that wasn't an experience that I, that was, you know, unique to me. I found hope in that. So I wanted to dig into that a little deeper and that's where minding the gap came from. I wanted to make a film that would simply help the younger version of myself survive survive my childhood. Being was born in China and his mom brought him to the US when he was five, his mom and dad split up shortly after his dad followed them to the states. And even though his mom got a masters in chemistry, she didn't speak English well enough to get a job in her feel. So she eventually moved them to Rockford to work in a Chinese restaurant. The first one that she worked at was called the great wall, and that's actually where my mom Mr. father Dennis was a patron at the great wall and one day he followed things mom home from work. And the next thing being new yet a stepfather. It wasn't long after that that Dennis started physically and mentally terrorizing being at his mom and his half brother, Kent. I've just remembered like not being at home as much as possible a member just coming home and praying that nobody was home, even though his own abuse had to be one of the main reasons for making his movie in the first place. He wasn't planning on being in it for a long time. The only not to his own connection to the subject. It was going to be that moment in the attic with care where he says, I did cry, but you know, I think in feedback, screenings, people would question that moment and be like, have you thought about being the film? I was like, I mean, I don't know. I didn't wanna make a film that was too self indulgent or navel-gazing for no reason. So I think that was the rationalization that I gave myself for not putting myself in the film anymore than you know the accidental verite moments. Now, if you ask being why he changed his mind and decided to put himself in the movie, he'll give you some very logical, very academic explanations and everything he says is probably true. But now years later, if you really push him on it, he'll admit that he was just getting up the courage to face his own pain head on not just process it through the lens of his camera. It's not a coincidence that he got into therapy during the time he was making minding the gap. I was driven by a deep curiosity about what actually happened. I blocked out so much of the past. I mean, it's crazy like we had experienced so much dark stuff in that house. And there are only two people that were alive that would be able to give me any sort of insight and what it was like because I had blocked all of it out, and that was my mom and my brother. So just really wanted to find out from them like, you know what? What happened? What did you tell her that you wanted to talk about? Just about. Dennis, my stepfather mostly. So she had to have known that you were going to ask about what happened to you. I guess so. I mean, I feel like are coping mechanism just defaults at not thinking about it. You know what I mean? You know, like if you just you kind of have to to be able to live in a household where you feel like you're walking eggshells for over a decade. Were you mad at her. Subconsciously. Yes. I didn't let myself feel it though. So what did you think you were going to get from that interview? I don't know. I honestly didn't know. I mean, I feel like I was just sort of jumping off a cliff that is coming up in a minute. You're listening to the document. I'm at Holzmann and this is the document from KCRW. Today's episode is returned to Rockford ever since he was a kid being Lou hid behind his camera and interviewed other people about their issues as a safe way to explore his own and his beautiful new documentary minding.

"Yeah, I remember I was in sixth or seventh grade and I got the bug. I just wanted to try it. So my mom got me this cheap WalMart board for Christmas and a stereo practicing in my basement. And then when it became warm enough to go outside and skate, I started making friends with the neighborhood kids, and I remember that spring and summer I would skate almost every single day, and that was a really memorable time in my life of just getting into the most insane shenanigans of these kids. That sounds kind of magic. Yeah. It really was. When being was fourteen broke his arm pretty badly and he couldn't skate. So he bought a little camcorder on EBay with money. He'd saved up from working as a dishwasher. Pandy Cam. I mean, it was like the size of my fist. He bought a fish. I Lynch risk camera and he started filming his friends obsessively. I mean, I was such a introvert and so shy. And so like I just I didn't know how to really socially interact or socially connect with other people. So as it was also a way of connecting with other people that I was hanging around. Like for example, I remember this one time. It was like winter. I must've been like fifteen or sixteen. My friend had these like skate ramps in his basement, and I remember just stopping the session, pulling people aside and making them answer like, would you rather questions you know. Know everything there is no, and be really, really sad for known like Bailey anything and be happy. Not really anything to be happy. I wanted to live anything you really, really. Bing, Lewis gaped Rockford as soon as he could, and he actually ended up making a living as a cameraman in Chicago, he'd forgotten about all that. Would you rather stuff until he decided to make a documentary about skate kids like him and he started to look through some of his old footage. I feel like I played therapist a lot growing up. You know, I feel like I wanted to do that to explore my own issues in a way that felt safe and comfortable by, I guess, digging deep into other people's childhoods as a proxy for exploration for things that I was too scared to figure out for a lot of kids like Bing, skateboarding is more than just something to do to fill the tolerant. One kid in his movie has a sticker on his skateboard that kind of says it all it says this device cures heartache and it's to Rockford guys who experienced plenty of heartache that being features in minding the gap. There Zack. Who's an awesome skater in all around wild man and Kear who's of few years younger than being and really the only black kid who skated around those parts being filmed one of his first interviews with Kierra in the warm light of his mostly empty attic. Can we talk about your father. Sure. Tell me the story about when he lacks your board in the car or when you like when he tried to take away board told me one of the stories, my dad, he was kinda strict. Meet him would go to gin and do basic rehab on apartment for the housing thirty out the and this one TAY I didn't want to go in Iran off and he drove up skating in just took my board and then like your front, everyone. And then we got home. I got disciplined. How did you get disciplined. I mean, will they call it child abuse now, but it's. Basically, I just can't. I guess spanking you something. Well, I mean, what was what do you mean by spanking. Gary to buy it. How bad did it get. Well, I guess like on a scale of one. Shin pilot. Eightyish eighty or something like that. Did you ever cry, curse, curse? Keer has a twisted little smile on his face. He's not quite looking at Bank and then he looks up and he says, what are you. I did cry..
