Mount Everest deaths blamed on rush for summit
"On Everest. It's fascinating. I you know, I must have seen a documentary about Mount Everest as a kid. I think I actually saw it at the museum of science and industry over. They have that big movie theater, and the big theater, that's shaped like has the circular am I thinking of the right the right. I think you are. Yeah, I forget what it's called, but seen a couple of movies there as a kid, and so just a few basic stats by the end of the statistics that they have are only up to the latest. I've seen through two thousand ten I'm trying to get more updated stats, but thousands of people have now climbed but the rate of people dying. Is about five and every one hundred which is a, that's how people over the the length of a year, or at least the, the length of a climbing season. Well, they say for everyone the overall rate from the beginning of when this started now. Okay, they say that about five out of every one hundred people that try to go to the top amount Evers parish, which is a lot. And if you think that it's getting safer. It's not. And so we've been talking about this traffic jam which of all places on the top amount ever since now where I had expected, but it's in this quote unquote, death zone and. It's this traffic jam specifically, so four P. This is updated story as of today. Four more people died on Friday. So just yesterday and two of them, they know for sure are because of this traffic jam and apparently so Nepal issued a record number of firm. It's this year. Can you guess how much cost to get one of these permits? Roger badesch, just any guest individual. Yeah. I'd say about two thousand dollars. Jess any guesses. How much does it cost to get a to get helped up to the top of Mount Everest? Ooh. Seven thousand eleven thousand bucks. Wow. That's the that's how much it costs to get up to the top of Everest got to get a permit, and they say that these permits bringing a, a real good amount of money for the impoverished country of Nepal, which is great. I'm glad that they're getting some money into honestly, these, these sherpas who do this these climbers. I mean, they deserve it if their shepherding. Yep. They're, they're taking on the risk as well. But Gary Raji kind of alluded to this. It's a very small window a suitable weather before the short season ends and the weather hasn't been great during this short season. So these bottlenecks, and we're talking hundreds of climbers waiting to achieve for many, although perhaps, not for Paris, the ultimate in mountaineering. So the latest four deaths on Friday taking the toll from the deadly week on the overcrowded peak to eight in to Indians and in Nepali, and on the Nepal side in Australia on the way down Michigan the top you get up there. And then on the way down you die. Yeah, I think a lot of people have this image of light people falling shortly that has contributed to some of the deaths. But it's, it's the weakened state. Your body is in from the deprivation of oxygen. Sure. And it's not a it's not like you go like you've been saying you're waiting in line. So that lack of oxygen just it's not a quick thing. You're sitting there in it. Yes. And you have one the part the story I saw earlier in the week was. Somebody who had been this was like a life goal of theirs, or they had had some kind of disease, and they recover and this was something they'd been training for and waiting for and saving up for her. And, and he got to the top passed out and fell. Oh my gosh. And that was it. You know, Don. That's the one I saw. Yeah. We've also seen some of the guides pass away as well. Yeah. American was life was claimed Donald Lind, cash, fifty five years old collapsed to the summit, he was taking photographs and you're saying another one died descending after reaching the top already organization. Organizers say they're trying to figure out a way to do this, but imagine you pay eleven thousand dollars. You get all the way up to see for me, which I'm of the belief that none of that is worth, of course, dying. And I think if you were to ask these people man to man woman to woman they would say the same thing. But once you're up there. What do you do? You can't turn around. So you're you're stuck in this game. No escalator. Yeah. What do you do? Also just stuck in this battle in your brain. That's like you've come this far. Yeah. Exactly. And you see the top like here's the thing. If you get twenty nine thousand and twenty feet instead of twenty nine thousand twenty nine you've got to get those last nine feet. You. Yeah. I mean like I can see why someone would risk their life to get to that point. And wait those last thirty feet for me. I'm like looking at it. And this photo showing this line of hundreds of people, I mean, you're almost there for me, I would turn around take a selfie say, click made it close enough, close enough, and turn around and get the heck out of there. You know what I would've done? It was kind of, like I when I went to the theater with Bridget, the other night is like so from the seat, I took picture of the stage and I, I wrote how close are we this close? So I would have turned around with the group behind me going, that's higher than me. And. Say and take a picture with, you know, a selfie with them behind me say, look at how close I am. And then just walked down is what you've done. I'm done. Twenty eight thousand nine hundred ninety five feet. Exactly out of twenty nine thousand twenty nine right. You've done it. And if I've stood in line now for ten minutes, I'm out of there, you know, move side, come down excuse me. Come down by. Yeah. Part of the issues at the summit such a narrow thing, too, is that they have one rope. So the people going up our have share a rope with the people going down. And that cannot be an easy manure to go through. And again, we're not trying to make light of the situation but it's just it's, it's, it's incredible what people will

"Eleven. I'm Roger badesch WGN radio newsroom. These are the stories that matter on seven twenty WGN. All right here on seven hundred twenty WGN how much money has been spent on advertising in the first five decades of the Super Bowl yet. That's over five billion dollars. And he company that wants to have a thirty second spot during the game will pay an average of five point two million. And that's slightly above what it was last year. And on top of that. Of course, the companies have to pay to produce the ads self pay for the talent which had several hundred million more dollars on that tonight. We're previewing the Super Bowl commercials. Joining me in studio is a marketing professional when the most towns guys that I know my buddy Jeff Rodgers president of zap creative. He's on the board of Chicago's factory. Theatre's second city alum. He's got a lot of stuff going on. And he's joining us. What's going on buddy? Saturday the beer big game. Game. Jeff, and I've been talking about watching watching we've been watching these spots all week long. And there's always something I get ridiculously excited about right? Even if it's a tease, it's a fifteen second teaser. I actually saw the spot or this is funny. I laughed my ass off watching this thing. I'm not there on any of those just yet. No right at all. No. And even the tea's like you'll see a couple of teaser spots. For Burger King's doing it this year where they've got a couple of teaser spots. But there's nothing. That's oh, this is going to be. So I wonder what they're gonna do with this. Yeah. Doritos? In this always strikes me because I know that there's some companies that get bored with their own advertising. So they changed up because they're bored. But the consumers not board and the Doritos contest of doing those spots and having people submit virtual those were always the ones I look forward to like I would look at the schedule to see when the Doritos spots were in the Bud Light. Yeah. Absolutely. And and the dorito spots this year, which will get to in a little bit. It's like, where's the strategy is? And I am watching and I have to look up what I'm seeing other people review the spots. There was this one person that was really excited. I think from USA today about several of these spots. And then I looked up that individual to see who they were like Facebook or wherever and they're twentysomethings and no fence to Oliver millennials out there. But like if you see this as being great, I'm not quite sure if you ever saw maybe some of the classic spots that we've been watching for years like I don't know how they're gauging frogs or like, the it's all of that it becomes a cultural touchstone if it's done, right? You can you can really parlay a great Super Bowl commercial into an incredible brand experience that everyone is talking about. But there's a couple of things that go into it. Right. Like Sam was talking about go. Daddy, having something that couldn't be aired on TV. You can go too far groupon. First foray, but just the buzzer on that go daddy spot gave them, right? Some some exposure. And if you're okay with your brand being in that space x rated, but in that sort of negative com- conversation. That's okay. As long as that pulls people in at the end of the day. What's the what's the retrial investment for that? But I think there's so much. There's so many people were playing it safe this year. That's what it feels like it feels like a lot of people a lot of brands are playing it safe or they've gone, so SO Terek that I just I feel like they they overshot it. Well, the political correctness, of course, is I think is kind of killed comedy to degree. That's tricky. It makes it much much trickier because I was watching some thereto spots from the past and a couple of friends that were in a couple of them. And they were funny as hell, but it was a boyfriend girlfriend argument, and blah, blah, blah. So is that not acceptable? Now. Like, I seriously every watered it down to such a point where we can't even enjoy life anymore. I mean, right. Yeah. It's it's something that you have to really take into consideration all of the different voices that you're using in that spot you have to make sure that the represented well. And so it becomes a whole different whole different process for for those writers in those great, doesn't it? Also, depend on who they're trying to reach. Oh, without a doubt. I mean who they're trying to target and how they're how they're going about communicating with them absolutely part of the equation. For example. I may not be the person that a certain brand is trying to reach. I'm not going to care for that commercial. I find it difficult to believe yard target. No, I am not a target. I'm a moving car. But somebody in their early twenties might be the target, and they will find over that commercial. They'll come back on Monday at the water, cooler and just praise it up and down and go out and buy the product or this. Let's talk about this. Rita's commercial? So it is a chance to rapper with the backstreet boys. And they're kind of reliving their moment in time. But I I don't get how chance got into this whole story. But it's not funny. It's it's throwback and the person that the couple of people that I've seen review the spotlight, isn't this great. The backstreet boys are kind of reliving their that moment and chances in there, and it's the mash. Yeah, it's the idea of the mash up rather than the execution right because the execution of it is kind of you know, it's just there. But the the idea of that is it's a fun idea. So they're kind of living with it is that the idea..

Allegedly was attacked at two in the morning African American guy his quotes, let me start by saying that I'm okay said this in a statement to essence, my body is strong. My soul is stronger. More importantly, I want to say thank you the outpouring of love and support from my village has met more than I ever will be able to truly put into words, I'm working with authorities that have been one hundred percent factual and consistent on every level. Despite my frustrations in deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread. I still believe that Justice will be served and. Superintendent johnson. Is backing up his story. The press conference today the facts as he shows them. Yeah. Yeah. Like, I said he's been very cooperative. You know, our job is to investigate the allegations and bring the individuals, and and that's what we're working towards today. We have no reason to believe he's not being genuine with us. So question for you, Jerry, none. And by the way, more carbon Jerry, none in here for Patty tonight with you to one o'clock and talking about the attack injustice smell at three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred why do you think there is a call it a movement to say what he's talking about is inaccurate? Why do you think that's going on? I I mean, I immediate. When I first heard it, I was upset and believed everything. But then you know, when some of this comes back out, there's not a lot of video footage. Why were they carrying all these things around unless they were just targeting him, which may have happened. You know, I mean, he's saying there's some inaccuracies being spreads. So I think that more truth is just gonna come out. I don't think he's a liar or anything. I think that maybe some things just got blown out of proportion or something. Right. What would be the motivation to make something like that up? Right. Right. Right. I mean, somebody suggested that maybe he got you know, there's some kind of abuse, you know, he's just looking to create attention for himself. It'd be very very odd choice to believe knowing and knowing him a little bit just from being around him. I mean, this guy is not somebody that would do something like that. Right. And to the political side of it like look everybody likes to talk about right left. Liberal conservative. What's most disappointing to me? Is like right now. At least the way the way it feels me. It's not about right left or whatever. It's just about. I'm on this team. Right. And you're on that team. And we're just trying to win. Yeah. I want my team to win. Right. And it doesn't really matter. What the issue is as even something as crazy as this. So because. But as anybody gonna win. Well, that's the thing. I mean, there is obviously there is no there is no quote unquote winning here. Right. And so if I'm on team read this story comes up, he's lying. Can't be true. No, they weren't wearing those. That's it. You see we can't there's there's something and on the other side too. I hear people don't let the people want to have a fight about the wall. This is going to be the worst thing ever. If he gets the wall. I'm not in favor of the wall. Right. But if if we end up building a building while the country's not gonna fall apart. Yeah. Might not be the best choice of money might not make us safer, but we're not gonna it's not gonna be the end of the world. If that's what happens. Yeah. I mean that that shutdown was just and sane for me. Coming back. Right. And I look I I appreciate the fact that people are gonna do get out. I guess and we're not going to give you what you want. It's ridiculous. You're just trying to quote unquote, win and not do what's best for the country. And we're not gonna take a loss over here. But just separate of just the wall. I would just like to see for whatever reason is impossible. It seems today to be in the middle even at an issue with with a guy like jussie smollet. Now, we're gonna say the guy's line because it doesn't align with our team. That's how that's how I that's why. I think there's like he's gotta be lying because it makes my team look bad. Oh, right. I just didn't think of it. Even from that angle. I just was like just trying to go through the facts like some people. Well, it's kind of like, you know, if you go back in time, let's go to the OJ trial. It's all the way back there. Okay. Well, that was a huge racial divided the country. Right. And it was like African Americans felt like there. They were all on trial. If OJ was guilty, right. That's one guy. He doesn't represent all of you. He represents one of you. So it just. Get in this team. Right. And I so and nobody wins, right? And it's just another thing. Nobody wanted back then nobody wanted to just gets ugly ugly, and uglier whatever they're gonna find the whoever killed Ron Goldman whenever that will ever will find out. So I that's just. And then moving it forward. Look. The city. I love Chicago. I love living here, even when it's negative twenty one. But I think we all know that we. We can do a lot better and making it a more inclusive city and also leveling the playing field as far as the opportunities for everybody starting with the schools. What about like what about the Candice pain story? I mean, how cool was that? That someone did something just nice like someone did something so nice and heroic. So that's a great story. Yeah. And if if people miss that so Candice pain. She was. She's very successful real estate business woman. Right. And with the cold. She knew that people in in who were living in ten cities might not make it through the night. So she ends up taking one hundred of them to the amber in Brownsville and uses her personal credit card to buy these rooms for people didn't have to do any of that. I mean, just and and obviously digest thirty four by the weekend is paying I was trying to find her in social media. You know, I'm sure I mean, but she just I don't think she even wants that. Thank you from that. I don't know. Maybe that's why she's not on there. I couldn't find her thirty four years old. She and her husband familiar with the homeless camp. Noor Roosevelt road in the splaine's avenue. Because they passed every time when they went to get on the Dan Ryan. She goes out and. A couple of friends as well. They go to the camp this is late Tuesday night or Tuesday night. And they took those they could persuade to amber and at thirty ninth street and Michigan avenue renting twenty twenty rooms at seventy bucks a piece. Cool part of the story. She called dozens of hotels denied won't take him. Amber in was the only place that will take him go, amber. And that's a lot right there. Right. Yeah. Like, I didn't realize that I know that pay four seasons. Can I bring in these homeless people? No. I mean, I'm sure she wasn't calling the four seasons. But she was calling. You know, a bunch of smart to ask permission because you know, get all that feedback from them afterwards. Well, and also you don't wanna be walking people in and then having them denied, and it's bright. So she had she was doing the right thing. Yeah. It's such. It's such a heartwarming story, you know, and doing something during that cold time, you know, I had some friends that when made little bags for people little goodie bags of like toothpaste and snacks. And all things like that. I went on the train and gave them to people, and you can get donations and people were really get behind that. So good for them doing something smart with your time. Absolutely. And then the the beauty of social media came and play. There are a lot of people, you know, social media cesspool. While you know, she puts out what she's doing on Instagram. She ends up raising a bunch more money. Okay. So I just couldn't find her on Twitter. Yes. So they they ended up money for sixty rooms for four nights for about one hundred twenty people like the line between life and death. Right. Really in that kind of weather. That's like your body's going to shut down, and you won't even know it until it's already too late. So that takes a real. A real character to go out there and people up and put him put them somewhere warm for just for just a little while four days is not a long time, right? A lot of people a lot of apparently some at least some people in the homeless community didn't want to leave. No, I'm not going with you. I mean, that's common is right. And so then a propane tank explodes at the camp, right? And so then fire fficials that came in they confiscated dozens of propane tanks. So the campers who hadn't initially taken the offer. Now, they have no source of heat. So she went back into the camp and pulls out more people. That's a hero. Yeah. While she's battling a cold too. I mean, it's not like the easy thing to just walk in and do that. Yeah. So wait a bring the positive rump. Jerry. I appreciate you doing that. Yeah. Sure. I mean I wanted to get her on. I mean would have loved to have talked to her. So maybe one day we can get her on. There's always the future. Yeah. Tense wants to talk to us three one nine eight one seventy two hundred.

And then I thought I would have enough time to go home and change because I felt like mister Rogers, I get comfortable work jeans. But you do have sweater. I did have the had the miss Roger sweater on. And then I looked at the clock. I'm like, oh, no like, I've got to hurry up. And then I forgot the weather was going to affect it. Barely got here on time. Do you think you purposely unconsciously unintentionally did all that just to create sort of an excitement about getting here? Yes. Maybe unconsciously. I'm not I'm not an expert in psychoanalysis. But there could have been a part of me. That was like, yeah. Let's just make it. So I'm running down the down the down the hallway to make it here. How often are you just on time or barely late or? Or something along those lines is just like an intervention. You've heard this before I I'm sick. I do that a lot see Roger like your Mr. on-time. I come in anywhere, two hours ahead of time. Right, right. I mean you, but I I don't have the active lifestyle you to do. That's not true. You're very busy. I I'm semi retired. Students in a wife, and and gone and grandkids, right? Yeah. You're you're very busy. But Sharon on time guy, Paul on the other hand, I liked the barely late phrase that you just used barely late. I've never heard of that before that's all areas. What is it that? Everyone says the if you're if you're early you're on time for your on time, you're late if you're late don't bother showing all. Yeah. Okay. See I go with like if you're early you're insane. You're on time. That's amazing. If you're if you're late, hopefully, it's just barely late. That's my theory. I got it. Okay. To be fair. You told me when you were going arrive, and I was like, oh, all right. Yeah. I went to bed tonight at. I was going to I was taking my my siesta. If you want to call it going to beds, a little heavy, but I lay down at ten thirty. I was getting texts from Jess how she's asking me. How you getting to the station. Oh my God. Do I get to pick just to get there? What did it be sure you were okay? Actually, very caring with match like a mother figure. Okay. Yeah. So are you? How are how are the roads over you? Like, I don't know. I'm in a high rise of seventy eight floors up here. I hope they're okay. But, but you were it was I was worried that I had to pick your where are you coming from last, Chicago, welcome. Wow. That's that's how we're matters to actually it's like an hour. So. Traffic. So does Matt normally pick you up. Oh, you guys go separate. Okay. I mean, I don't know. Like nor more northwest like the opposite direction at me. Okay. How long does it extra trafficky because of the the weather tonight for you? Well in my subdivision. I'm in the Inc part of town. So they had no pilots out. It was just snow Pacalypse. Can you explain how one ends up in? The unincorporated parts of west Chicago works the WGN radio. And you're very youthful. Jess how how does that all come together? Well, when my boyfriend was married him and his ex wife bought a house in Chicago. And now he has. Herited that sodas. Okay. I this is personal. I apologize. Okay. So that's why we got we got we got. We got situations. We got conditions here. We got a house. We got the whole thing dog. Right. Right. Okay. How do you get? We'll be the proper route. There if Broadway eighty eight okay? That's what I was gonna guess. Yes. I do take idiot home like past Aurora. Are we talking here where we going like fifteen miles past Aurora? Wow. Okay. Not far, you know, all by. I was supposed to drive to Oprah today was gonna get my my I was going to get mail from my parents from the post office because there they were supposed to come back from from Florida, and they didn't. So I was on my way out there in this afternoon. And the traffic was so bad that I just I just turned around. And I called my parents might. Yeah. I'm just do it on Tuesday because Monday's a holiday so Farhad folks feel about that. There was like that's fine. We just got totally sidetracked about about your arrival times. And now, you're now, you're dogging your parents. You didn't show up? I didn't. Well, they weren't there. I to be fair. I already said I was like, well, I'll do it on Friday. That was when I was going to do it and I woke up at every intention of going out there. And then when I eventually got on the road, the traffic was like it was saying like an hour and a half. Usually, it's an hour from my house. I'm not gonna make it 'cause the post office closes it at five. So it was like cutting it close, mom and dad understood. They understood. I don't need that. Now. They're retired. Right. But the reason why I was asking you about being barely latest. Because this is what I do Paul. I I create weird excitement in my life to try to just make it on time. See I think it's terrible. I think I should be. I I didn't know I do I get my friends complain about me being laid a lot. But I it's not that. I'm not doing this intentionally. I just time things out wrong. Like, I'm like, oh, I slept time to do this. Like, I'll I'll go through and see what I can do before. I get on the road. And like that's like today. I was like, oh, I have time to change I'll start packing for my trip. But then I didn't even get a to do that. So I left a pack. Do a false belief. You can accomplish things in your life that you don't accomplish. I actually accomplish them. They're not false. They're accurate. So that never a everything you've set out to do you get it done if I put it on a to do list? Yeah. Really? But I also put like little things like wake up side like. That's an cross it off. Would you build momentum that way? Yeah. First quarter, second quarter. You know, how a Montereau? Yeah. Right. Little things have some OJ drink some coffee. Check emails. That's easy coffee at the same time. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Win win wins. Okay. All right. I'm I haven't thought of it that way that good. I should start doing that Bill build up build a lesser of two doable. Things. Three one nine eight one seventy two hundred by the way is the phone number can Carmen and fire of our live up to map Kubala. We'd love to know if you think we can do it here. And I am curious to the people that are just barely late people out there. I would love to know like your if anybody's ever been like the chronically late person who somehow transform their life. And now, they're the time person. I'd like to hear how personal right early personally. How did you do it? What was the why? Why would you wanna be early? See they like when you get there early.
