"Again. Nan Ryerson, I dated your sister Mary pad a couple times till you told me not to anymore. Well, Ned Ryerson. Bang. Bing. So did you turn pro with that belly button thing, Ned? No. Phil? I sell insurance. What a shock. Do you have life insurance? Because if you do, you could always use a little more. Am I right or am I right or am I right? I would love to stand here and talk with you. But I'm not going to. Hey, that's all right. I'll walk with you. Isn't that fun? Isn't that funny? Isn't that good? That's Steven Toby lavsky, who is Ned in Groundhog Day, along with Rick Miller's who will talk to them both now. I want to start with you, Steven, just because we just heard your voice there. Do you have as much fun listening back to that as we do? Oh, it's one of those things that brings you back with every sense of your body. It was so cold when we shot that. It was freezing and was first up in the morning It was 6 30 in the morning when we started shooting that. And I was terrified. So when I hear those dulcet tones of these screaming across the road out there, it all comes back to me in that morning at Woodstock. Well, when you saw that script, did you see all the opportunity there that you were able to take advantage of? I mean, did that just look like just that passage alone? Did you think this is why I'm an actor? I'm going to sew no. Well, you never know. When you're working on a movie, you never know if it's going to be good or bad, even when you're shooting it in groundhog was certainly one of those. Because as it turned out, when we were shooting that Harold Raymond did not know what the day of the movie would be because it's Groundhog Day it has to be repeated, which means meteorologically it has to be the same day and we were shooting outside of Chicago in the winter. And so you know, you got everything. And we had snow we had sleep we had hail, we had gloom, we had sun. And so Harold Ramis took Bill and I and said you don't have a schedule anymore. Whenever the weather changes, we'll come back and shoot this scene in every weather condition. And so I remember Bill and I were running and I think it was the chaos of it all living through it. It was chaos, but kind of guerrilla theater sometimes could turn out to be the best. And for Groundhog Day, it really turned out as good as it possibly could be. No kidding. But are you also saying then that you shot that scene, for instance, in different weather conditions so that there would be a would not be a continuity problem? Absolutely. And so at the end and not only that in the script, if you recall, there are several meetings of Bill on the street and they kind of get shorter and shorter, a little different, that first thing is the longest. But there's one where built just runs through with me chasing it. So we had about 5 of those scenes in the script and we shot each one of those in different weather conditions at the end Harold Ramis had the choice and he said, I want the gloomy day to be the day when Ned and Bill meet Phil Connors meet and then at the end of the movie when snow starts to fall as to when time starts again. So it was crazy. But you never knew it was going to turn out to be that good. And it did turn out to be just a wonderful movie. You were in over 200 movies and TV shows and are still working all of the time. I was looking at your IMDb, do I correctly see thelma Louise basic in street memento adaptation, all of those you've appeared in all of those films, right? Well, I was in all of those films, but like an adaptation, they cut me out. They cut me out completely. Now, you know, again, you don't know was it me or was it the fact that they didn't have permits to shoot where we were shooting in a police helicopter was hovering overhead the entire time? And so the sound was completely, but I did get to meet Meryl Streep and she had to shoot me in the back of the head and there's no better way than having them giving them a gun with blanks in it and trusting them to not shoot you in the back of the head. It's a trust exercise. You say that in light of what's happened of late now. I wonder looking back at your career, none of us ever thought about the safety of guns on movie sets, right? And when I did, I shot in South Carolina and be Caracas studios there. I'm the very set where Brandon Lee was just killed. And he was killed by, as I recall, a blank, you know, a blank is not something that's harmless. It fires too and

"We had some guys that went off to New York and worked on the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. We had a couple guys go off to work at visual effects houses. We had some that went off to China and worked in documentary films there. And so I guess they all kind of took me under their wing and I got to kind of see life through their eyes for a while and day onboard me to their projects as this young kid that was getting really shitty duties on their projects, but it was dope. And eventually, I got good at editing. So I became an editor at freelance editor while I was still in high school and all that. I ended up working with ray on television, Hong Kong. I was editing some of their documentaries and a buddy of mine that I worked with in the corporate world. We were both moonlighting in the film industry. He ended up going to the American Film Institute. He became a directing fellow there. And I edited the three short films that got him accepted into the American Film Institute. So that was just that kind of set me up and then I worked at my first agency ever. I worked at as a video editor initially, kind of cutting together demo reels for them and content for their clients and then they turned me into a flash developer before flash got killed off by Apple. Steve Jobs in one letter, they turned me more into a dev than anyone else and kind of let me see what happened when you press a button and something bounces on a screen. They did that. And I think in a big way kind of set me up for where I'm at now. So you kind of got introduced in the tech at an early age, but through media. I think that's pretty cool. Yeah, I mean, I really just always love the creative process and being able to geek out to kind of pull that process together. It's been a lot of fun. It's been a lot of fun and you see a lot of stuff and yeah, I think the common thread in my career though has been being on the cutting edge of technology. So whether it was the film and using Jane TS versions of file with the pro on these ridiculously powerful computers, I did a stint at Canada pension plan, investment board. So I was a systems analyst for them. Working on some hardcore service stuff years later after film and agency stuff working in AR and VR again cutting edge of technology. So I think that's always been kind of the constant in my life and in my career. And now you went to Ryerson university, which I think by the time this interview comes out, people know it's now Toronto metropolitan university. But you majored in fine and studio arts as part of their new media program, they're like, what was your time there? It wasn't great. You know, so I went to I went to Ryerson because the founder of my first agency, he was actually in my batch the first batch of new media graduates at Ryerson. That guy has always been like my hero and I love him to death. Shout out to Spence Spencer Sanders. I kind of want to be like him. So I went to Ryerson and learned hop into the new media program over there..

"That's just how you learn to step out make those mistakes. We're all gonna make mistakes so to me anytime. I've learned this when i make a mistake. It's not. It's not failure at all. Because i learned from it so it's like a well it. It's who who said that the a one of the other people on my podcast jam ryerson said it's only a failure if you didn't learn anything. Yeah and i thought that was a really wonderful way to look at it and also that idea of accepting compliments. Same thing i. I always struggle with that because i didn't want it until someone just basically you know my accountability friends. Just did slaps in the head and said hey. Just say thank you. That's all you have to say. Thank you don't aflak don't justify you're being selfish to say thank you and move on and it took me a while to do that. But you're right it is it. Is this idea of failure. Someone asked me about that and said well. What do you think about failure. I said it depends on what you were view of failure. It's why bucs completely different. Because i don't think it's failure i. That's one less thing. That's one way that didn't work right. I don't run to repeat that. let's try something else. And your drive has to be i. Think surrounding yourself in your network Consciously consciously with people were willing to help you or put you in that position to provide maybe some guard rails or safety. Bumpers that said. Hey we're here. If you fall we'll help you get back up but you have to fall. I can't i can't prevent you from falling. We did fall our first night. We did a clinton dot summons felt show for as he got on there. He's tax in me behind the scenes. He's like okay because we were all in one room and we went. When i started the room it went. Oh my goodness what are we going to. We were during our meeting. We mean on monday nights. And i'm thinking what in this world so we all split up scott on. He said just live in front of everybody. He's like here's what you did was so calm. Here's what you do. I'm going to help you. Here's how you moderate but that's how you learn. Yeah it was embarrassing. Who cares but you know what it is. It isn't because one you didn't make an embarrassing to we have a network where you're a gentleman like scott will be there but you know what everybody else is going. Well thank god. It wasn't me but you know what they didn't learn either though again. It is those willing to take those challenges. Take those as you said earlier. Which i thought was great is stepping out in. You know in your faith just to say it's all right. We'll figure it out nothing less. It's ongoing traffic. I'm not gonna die so we'll just you know it's clubhouse how bad can it be. I shut it down in home and gulp never doing that again. But but now look now we would have missed all the blessings people each week. Afterward talk they just send us these messages in. They're like wow. I needed to hear that. And i'm like i know you did. Because we pray before we get on their lord displeased with the right people in this room that need to hear this about us. It's about what luther us and we say that every single night we start the room and it never fails well. It's that sort of you know that's reason with listen with this podcast it some days. I'm excited and other days. It's not going fast enough. That's my own ego. But then i get people reaching out to me and say that was a phenomenal episode. That really meant something to make or more importantly.

"And you know that they're the NOs. They are the people, look, they're the people that don't want to really be there. That's the people that you should remove. But if they're giving you great attitude, they're putting in the work. Some of my best performers were not the best out of the gate. But they gave me the work ethic. They showed up with a great attitude. They were slower learner, but long-term, they were awesome for my culture. They were awesome for the company. And we have to remember that. Some of your all star performers, they're just so gifted, but if they show up with a crappy attitude every day, long term, they won't be there. Right. And one of the things that I've noticed sometimes and I really liked when you're talking about putting people with labels and in buckets. Oh, they used to be good, but they're not now. And you're not taking responsibility to figure out what happened. If you had a top performer and they're not performing well, there is a reason. And you have to start diving in to figure it out to see one if I can salvage them or know they can't be salvage, whatever it is, but if they were performing, it could be the way you're communicating. It could be what you said. I gave them money, but what they really wanted was a pat on the back. They wanted recognition, right? So again, there is this with personal accountability is taking the time to understand your folks, what motivates your folks, what gets them going, what they want from you so that you can deliver on that as well. Well, hope you enjoyed that episode. I know I got a lot out of it. If you want to listen to the full episode or watch the full episode jump over to YouTube or wherever you get podcasts, just look for episode number 80..

"That's really the key here for you listening here. I usually would recommend I did this for years with my team, check in in the morning. What are you working on today? Like 5 minutes, three minutes. What are you working on today? XYZ. Great. Whenever I would check in to your point, it's not me coming down on them. I'm helping them fulfill their plan. If I tell them here's the three things you have to do today, I will bet you anything, there's at least one of them they're going well, he doesn't understand. That's not really important. I should be doing something else. And they're fighting me on the plan versus I'm there to help you succeed and get you to finish the day. Basically saying if jam, if you do what you just say you did, we're staying on course to get X so when you go in, now let's pivot a little bit from coaching leaders. What's their biggest mistake that they make when trying to hold their team accountable? I think it comes down to knowing the incentives Glenn, I really do. These leaders come in and they think I gotta crack the whip or I'm gonna throw some money at it. Right. Neither of those really work long-term. Everyone is different. So we have to understand that everyone is literally different in how they are incentivized. For instance, I don't care money has never been a driver for me. It's just not. Right. But recognition? Huge. It's a huge thing for me because I want to help other people. That's so that's always been my driving factor. So I think the biggest and then the second thing I'm to answer your question, managers will come in and they'll label people. You're lazy, you're not competent. You're whatever they say it is, and it's like, actually, maybe they have a sick moment at home..

"The next logical one word from your book as well and we've touched on a little bit is accountability. So there's two parts to accountability. One is personal accountability. So again, following the path of our example of a salesperson, it's my job to know my products inside and out so well to understand what potential concerns someone would ask questions to ask. I need the answer so that I can be comfortable in listening without as soon as you say something. I'm already thinking what I'm going to say. And so really I'm disconnected. The other accountability as a leader accountability, how do you hold someone accountable to that job? How do you coach them? So let's talk about personal accountability first. When you're working with individuals or for yourself, when the words personal accountability, what does that mean to you? What are we trying to accomplish? What are we literally why are we doing whatever we're doing? So in this example, I'm going to go work at whatever my job is. I'm going to go work in sales. Okay, cool. Why are you working because I need to support my family? Cool. And I asked two questions in every interview. What is the minimum amount of income you need to make? And how much would you like to make? And the reason I ask both is the minimum, if they're not making that amount of money, I'm not doing my job as a leader. And so right. And if I follow up, it's important for my kids. Okay, cool. So your kids are very important to yes. And they are literally setting all the accountability measures that I need for their job. It's rare, especially in an interview. It's rare that I'm going to put their measures higher than they will themselves. So once you do that, once you do that personal accountability where they say, this is exactly what I need to do in order to take care of my family..

"To connect to rosamund pike got a seri- of his son and then was able to talk to his mom again. I would have been felt like the reason why they kept that stuff with rosamund pike was it was just so good and she's so compelling so let's leave them in clearly. There were issues in this movie. I mean it feels like they wanted like an emotional story. Which i which i really. I'm like i get why this might have been cool like the idea that like. Oh this isn't just your classic sifi kinda shoot 'em up stuff there's like There's actually heart and emotion at its base in here. It's just a lot of it is being depicted by people who are representing themselves as surrey's so they're not facially giving us those emotions which is weird and is like you thought you were talking to this person. But you're actually. You're talking to this person. But since i don't even know that person that i thought i was talking to the reveals a little bit different. It's not like there's only so many times you can go like scooby doo. Rip off the masking bekaa. But if you don't know them before the surrey like the best. One is the james cromwell as being rains reveal is probably the best one but again being rams really only shows up for a moment in the montage and then when moment at the end and then it's revealed that he is james cromwell who is funding operation to get rid of the series of the world. And then bruce willis and and his big plan. James carnell turns out to be like the great villain both because he created these series but now he also is going to use the last remaining weapon that kills the series and their operators to commit mass genocide. So he killed. The operators to that was his plan. Okay right okay right because he says the only way to kill the addiction is killing avenue until the moment is like. Why didn't he just wait a couple minutes longer before taking that size news. I feel like literally. He was minutes away second. He just do it. What did he do himself. Because he's just like gobble gobble the suicide pill and then but then like the his. Why did he exactly. Why didn't he see his plan. Through to fruition seconds away. But then bruce willis doesn't at the end. The i was kind of confused like what the debate was because the debate was aborted. It and all the series all the series live. Kill it all the series die but the operator stay alive and then it's like a new utopian. We get to see the what happens after that. But the guy the operate the the guy who plays god the the guy in the meets bag the meat bag and that seems like jewett like he was. he wants to save the surrey's he wants to save the series which i was confused about because he's a meat bag when he wanted just but he works for the fbi okay. He's he works for the fbi. I think and his whole job is predicated on the series. Allow him complete like he's basically able to see through the eyes of every surrey so he's able to sell that rape in real time the ass so he's a he's exactly so he's able to do so so the series allow for pre like kind of like a lot of shady stuff on the police side. The series allow people to behave not great. This like i think what we're watching the movie is everybody's cool with surrey's right everybody's coolest except for the prophet and the anti serie kind of human liberation front or whatever they're called And they see victims giving these speeches and you. There's these montages were bruce willis is hearing the prophets speak. And it's all landing on him. He's starts to bad. And so we need that final beaten. He says okay. All the operators are safe. Nobody's going to die if this bomb goes off. Basically in the guy's like yeah but all the series will die. Bruce willis makes the choice. Let the series die. the cromwell was right surrey's of ruling into our lives as human beings. We're not we're not living our lives. We don't that final moment of everyone taking off their steam punk classes isn't going like who am i like you know you don't be you see them all walk out of their houses and look at the series on the ground and so forth. I mean. i was surprised that there weren't more consequences to everybody being detached from surrey's eat like i expected planes falling from the sky thing. We saw a couple of cars crash right. and listen. there's a major cleanup. Like someone's gotta get tear so many series so many government pile by the way. The way that the wizards exploded didn't seem like they would be like. I guess my issue is like and what's the south of scientists and fixing these series for sure. I mean look you know. Look for every chroma. There's another cromwell that's what i always say. Oh i think. I think this culture is is gonna be almost immediately. This is a bad plan. I mean luckily if if they're going to compare it to an addiction some new dealers is gonna come along and be like. I've gotta remember series. Guess what we got more to me. My really be like version two is let that siri go to work for you and then you can go to the club dressed as a duck and figure out whatever you wanna do like you know. Let's yeah let's just like have fun like let's break some rules here like you know like they were there. Those two series that we saw on the subway. And i think that that was supposed to be like I thought that was supposed to be like you can be anything you want in this world. They didn't look particularly human totally wrong on that level of wish film. I think that. I mean it was an interesting concept like oh what are beauty standards. Are you attracted to people. You think you're attracted to when everybody is good looking like that right okay. An interesting idea like everybody's achieved what in our culture is unachievable which is like the meeting. The beauty standards then. Then what is that here. Beauty standards for bruce willis Bake that guy he and his wife chose the same faces embodies which was in rod mitchell comments on it when she meets him ryerson right. She says oh. You're surrey looks a lot like you like. And she's surprised like oh that's not normally the case that people's surrey's so closely resemble their actual selves. You know and the pawnshop guy he's like well what i can take this down. I can make you younger. I can make you this. i can make like. He's he's he's up selling him on all of the kind of surrey ways that you cannot be trapped in your actual cell should we. We make a shirt for the show like that. Just don't ask me ask my operator like some sort of there is there. Is there a t shirt. That's like my operator is a meet bag. See that. I think that that's good or maybe there should be a surrogate and the other says meet bag. That's good too. Yeah just a whole line of clothing. I almost feel like it should be an outline of a person one of which is like very symmetrical and normal surrogate and one. That is like a normal person's face or something like and then it should say operator like it should almost be like you know you should see the kind of before and after. This is a very complicated shirt. But i'm into at all Well anyway i think. I think there's a shirt in here we will. We should take a look at that. And i gotta say obviously. We had an opinion about this. We the people out there with a different opinion. These are now second opinions. This person recommends a tell me jay sekulow.

"You're always kicking them under the bench telling sit down and required. And so it's sometimes it's nice to really focus on the messages. Not how people are perceiving. Your children or some people have hearing issues are a number of reasons why people would prefer the online experience to in ryerson admit. Sometimes during the watching church online was like. Yeah the kids were. I invited the kids and wanting them to sit down and watch church sometimes. They sneak away to their room. And my wife. And i enjoyed it and that was kinda nice right. And so that's not an option at nine the whole crew to church right. Well one of the things. Whenever i'm feeling spiritually disengaged feel really grateful that my grandfather before he passed away compiled hundreds of pages of his life. History and different talks that he'd given in church and a state. President done a lot of lot of lot of toxins life. So one he talked about was like why do we need religion like why do we need other people and that talk in particular was really helpful as i was like making the decision to come back to in person practice with like we need people like we need. That's how you get better is by learning from the examples of other people. And i think especially eh really liked. There's a talk in. General conference is called poor little ones. Were they talked about. How even like we especially need the people who feel the most is engaged in the most reminder like we need their spirits even more than perhaps the ones that we always hear has fantastic. So they'll show in this. As far as what makes people spiritually worn out. What can we learn there. So i think the one that i was aware of the first is mental illness so having depression anxiety can really interfere with your ability to sit in church and if you have social anxiety it can be really hard to reach out to to speak. And i think we weren't that you gain a lot of testimony through the burying of your testimony..

The wikipedia page like all our listeners can but or to the bathroom every thirty minutes somebody within functional prostate and a brain large enough to contain a lot of new information about the subject that i wrote about this conversation With an expert in that world i think would be interesting and i think it would be more interesting if it were on camera and i think it would be doubly interesting if the conversation.

"What was your school named Bay ridge bay ridge secondary bay rich just a better area of town. That's really that's good. I wondered though about ryerson university in toronto where a number of professors had sort of gathered together to try and change the name of the school and remove statue of edgerton ryerson. Who was one of the architects of the residential School system and so you know seeing the statue of him every day going to school with his name on it every day after you know the the weeks that we have had now talking about and thinking about residential schools becomes heavy for a lot of people in particularly for Indigenous students to the point where they decided that they were just gonna take down the statue and in these really dramatic pictures video. The pulled it down. They cut off his head and they threw it in the water on sunday. And that was a rally and there were people there and it was partly in response to what was uncovered in kamloops british columbia. But it also. I think leads to a bigger question around the names of these historical figures. Ryerson is one of them. But johnny mcdonald is a much more prominent one where there are other places in the country where they have decided they are no longer comfortable with having him memorialized in statues In picked on -tario they've decided to take the statue down and put them in storage. Statue was removed in charlottetown. It's happened in victoria. It's happened in multiple places across the country because johnny mcdonald as well as being a founding father of this nation also had a hand in residential schools. I don't think it's as as saying all of these. Things should be removed. I don't think that's. I don't think it's as easy as that and i wonder what it says about how we are dealing with our history and the pace of change as we sort of grapple with how do we deal with these figures of the past who are representative of many things..

So i'm a big baseball fan. I love the visible. And i had been unaware of this giant scandal. This should be the biggest scandal in sports rights. Sports illustrated to understand the fiasco. Baseball's twenty twenty one season which people around the game described as sullied by rampant cheating to a degree not seen since the steroid era took to understand it. All you have to do is pick up a ball and then try to put it back. Down pitchers are applying sticky stuff to the balls in. So it's so rampant. They estimate that like something. Like eighty to ninety percent of the pitches thrown. Eighty nine hundred. Eighty ninety percent of pitchers are using it in some capacity said one baseball player do enabled shirts sticky stuff on the ball. See if he can find anything that would Image search excuse me allergies. One ball made its way to and ultimate up there comma. Baseball one ball made its way into an ashley. Dugout last week players took turns touching palm to the sticky material coating and lifting the baseball adhering to their hand into the air without grouping it just a flat hand. Slipping the ball of so. What's the advantage of sticky stuff on the ball. We'll get to that in another one. Corralled in different dugout had clear in fingerprints invented in the google. That opponents could mimic teachers. The pitchers grip a third. One was sticky that when an opponent tried to pull the glue off three inches of seems came off with it. What yeah. The sticky stuff helps increase spin on pitches which in turn increase their movement. Making the more difficulty hit. Major league pitchers major league. Baseball uses nothing but brand new baseball. I mean they're rubbed up with this special stuff that takes some of the shine off of them and everything but it's not like in literally were gate beaten up and little tattered a little softened. They're all slippery. You know partly. Because i know a guy major league baseball i have plenty in the in fact i have one in the studio summer major league baseball there slippery and to get the max spin on it. You just have to get your fingers a little sticky and that's contributed to. Oh and so they can make the pitch is break. More increasing their movement makes them harder to hit. That's contributed to an offensive crisis. That seen the league-wide batting average plummet to a historically low to thirty six really. I didn't know that would really help if they gave like two years ago batting average which i don't know historically low batting average i did not know that. The sports illustrated spoke with more than two dozen people. Most of them requested anonymity to discuss cheating within their own organization from the dugout players and coaches shake their heads as they listen to pitchers deliveries. You can hear the friction of the ball spinning in the air. The recently retired pitcher a recently retired. Pitcher likens it to the sound of ripping off a band aid. Is that the ball coming off their hand so looking like a couple of years ago. The league averages were in the around two fifty and now they're down to thirty six. That's yeah in fact. A major league team executive says his players have examined foul balls and found the major league. Baseball logo torn straight off the leather. Well by the stick them on pitchers hands so in many clubhouses across the sport that training rooms become the scene of the crime pitchers head in there before games to swipe tongue oppressors which they used to apply their sticky stuff to wherever they choose to hide it then returned afterward to grab rubbing alcohol to dissolve the residue so they just they swapped their fingers back their hands or elbow. Whatever and just scratch added a little bit and that's something putting junk on the balls as old as time but uses using stick them to increase Spin is pretty novel one. American league relievers says he uses a mixture of sunscreen and rosin blah blah blah Interesting scandal what to do what to do. Check their balls again. Boy allergies this time of year terrible. I'm not laughing at your agency. I assure you. So sean did you look up edgerton ryerson. Who is this person. He is Adolfo edgerton ryerson was a canadian educator and methodist minister who was prom a prominent contributor to the design of the canadian public school system. I wonder what he did wrong. A statue of edgerton ryerson on the university campus named after him ryerson university. I mean this is an entire university in the most gleaming city of canada toronto. A statue of edgerton ryerson on the university campus was toppled. Protesters took it to the toronto harbour where it was throw in ryerson university again. It's right there in the name of the university while that you ever see named after the guy released a statement saying the statue will not be restored or replaced.

You can vote with your mouse there. But I just want to say that we're going to play back Part of the conversation with Ned Ryerson after the 11 30 edition of our News headlines, he told a really interesting story. About how, instead of making ground Hog Day Zany fun Bill Murray styled movie They were going to make it something that was a little more meaningful. And it's maybe why the movie's been so successful. He's a good storyteller. That guy Stephen Tobolowsky 200 films and TV shows to his credit, including things like Basic Instinct. And a whole host of movies and TV shows. So part of that conversation if you missed him Come your way after 11 30 about that op Ed in the paper the other day. Gerald McNair is the school administrator in South Holland's district, 1 51 that is in the Chicago area. Of course. He joins us on W gm Doctor McNair Thanks for being on WGN. How are you today? Hello, John. I've been listening to you for years. I absolutely love your show, John. This conversation is off to a very good start. Appreciate your joining us and thank you for those kind words. Um, so tell me about your job first. Doctor, you said school Administrator. What do you do it South Holland. We'll do a lot of ministry and I'm a school principal Wonderful school district, 1 51. We really, really are doing some marvelous things. Look up our students, our staff. We have such a supportive community. And so, John, when I Been involved in education about 22 years course, started off as a teacher and moved on working a possum or district and now in South Hollis condition I couldn't be more happy, but what we are doing in our school district. Thanks for asking about my personal life. Well, just tell me one more thing about that. So then how many students? Are you the principle of about 350 students in my building as entire district we have about close to 1600 students, and we have a wonderful leader, Dr Hill, who's our superintendent, and we have a very very can do spirit. All of our students can learn it's her motto. And we are doing the best we can to provide a first rate education to our wonderful students and their parents. How are you doing it in South Holland? You guys remote in or out? What are you doing? Well, safety. First we are stay a remote but is a day by day kind of thing that we're monitoring with the help of our school board, and hopefully, when things are safe and so forth, we can come back to more traditional way. Not why I called you. But we talked about this earlier how the kids were doing and it's amazing how many of them are cheating on tests and assignments. Now, did you hear any of that? And I wonder what you all think about that on the education side, John. I don't think that's happening in our district. At least we hope you were marvelous job making sure students are held accountable but we are chancel. These are very difficult circumstances so we must be gentle. My staff is reading a wonderful book called Trauma Sensitive Classrooms. And so we understand the different issues that students are dealing with the sober, very mindful about that, and very gentle and how we approach what we do here in our district. Gentle trauma sensitive classrooms. What does that mean? Well, students are going through a lot, and we have to understand what their plight is in covert 19 has just kind of made it worse. And so when we deal with students who may be going through different things are agitated and movie. There was a reason for well, you must seek first to understand. Cameras and their cameras are off. Doctor I What do you do to get him to? Because to me when the camera's on the students more engaged when the cameras off, it's it's a perfect representation of how challenging it is for the teacher. The kid's not even showing up. I can't see them. What do you say about that? He was incentive news incentives different kind of ways to motivate students in the vast majority of them comply, And when we don't get what we won't be contact appearance. Me and my assistant principal. Mrs. Rush will even go to the homes that we have to, but part of it is just building Senate. And most of the kids willing to comply, But at times there moments But there are so time shine when they may not want to disclose was going on at their homes. And so sometimes they turn those cameras off because they want to be protective. Certain situations that they may be dealing with. What's the racial makeup of the South Holland school year? The principle of About 30% Hispanic population and about one or 2% Caucasian and the rest African American, You have a very, very wonderful environment. And we learned so much from me that jug and diversity is key. So in this op ed in the Chicago Tribune, I say that because you wrote solutions to Carjacking epidemic can come from the black community, too. And I just want to quote you to you a little bit here. You said the reality is that no matter how much money is spent on law enforcement, no matter how many hours a task force puts into curb these acts of violence, Carjackings Solutions also must come from within the black community. Parents and neighbors must watch their teenagers or young adults. Watch who they are hanging with. Observe if they are getting out of a car that You know, does not belong to their child or their friends. Watch. If there are random wallets or jewelry in the house, watch the kinds of video games they are playing, particularly those that glorify robbing. And stealing, so just expand on that a little bit. Do you think that the black community is you described them are it is not doing enough along those lines..

What does it mean to give land back to Indigenous communities?
"Today on the show land back to words that have become popular at rallies gatherings and protests across canada. But how easy is it to just give land back to indigenous communities turns out this very simple phrase opens up a lot more questions that clay that that creator used to construct our bodies. This is part of who we are. And i think that there's sort of naturalization that the land is already gone and there's nothing that can be done about it and we know that that's not true more and more people ask. How can i give back to indigenous people. What can i do to reciprocate. That's today on unreserved. One of the loudest and most frequent demands of indigenous people in the relationship with settlers is for the return of the land. That's a quote from land back. An in-depth report about the ongoing dispossession of indigenous lands in canada and indigenous. People are doing to get it back. Land was published by the yellow had institute. A first nation led think tank based at ryerson university in toronto hayden kings. The executive director of the yellow had institute. he's finished nabi from beausoleil first nation and he joins me now hayden. Welcome nice to be here. Nice to have you. So why did you want to write this report. You read the quote. It's very long. Demand by indigenous people may the loudest demand in a relationship with canadians has been for land restitution for honoring treaties for getting the land. Back in i think every generation or so this demand results in conflict. And i think that we could sort of see that coming. And we taking our direction from people on the ground on the blockade enforcing indigenous jurisdiction and really just taking direction from those folks and they were telling us that that we need some resources analysis some research to really help push the cases for Forgetting the land back. And when we're talking about colonization in canada do you think it ultimately is a conversation about land. Colonization has many facets wide reaching and affects every aspect of our lives as indigenous people. But i think you know you trace all the policy areas or all the areas of life in a relationship between canadians and indigenous people and they all sort of go back to the same place which is which is back to the theft of land dispossession of of indigenous people from the land. And all the sort of socio economic challenges that we see in contemporary canada. I think they all go back to that. And i know that there are some instances of of communities actually getting land back And you point to those in the report. Can you tell us a bit about that. There has been this concerted effort over the past century or two to shape a narrative that land dispossession is natural. That it sort of happened that at that is over now need to move on and figure out how you're going to live your life as a canadian with all the benefits that are afforded the canadians. And and i think that there's this sort of naturalization that the land is already gone And there's nothing that can be done about it and we know that that's not true. Historically we know that our ancestors fought for the land we know that people in our communities are fighting for the land. And so it's not a foregone conclusion in an integral part of the land back for us was to to really show that there are communities out there across the country that are actually asserting jurisdiction to the land and enforcing their jurisdiction. It's really important to talk about those cases into show other communities that know the narrative that candidates spinning land is gone. And you're never gonna get back is is wrong. It's false it's a lie. It's a myth and there are all these communities out there that are that are actually getting it back telling those stories or those stories. I think is important to show communities that they can do that. Too and there are alternatives to wet What candidate tells us as possible. Inland back the report. You right There is a stubborn insistence canada. The provinces and territories that they own the land. Can you tell us what you mean by that. There's this long history of canada and canadians sort of mythology ising the emergence of the country. I think there's this narrative that settlers came here and they met indigenous people and there was a for trade and treaties were made and everything everyone got along well and and out of those treaties indigenous people agreed to give the land canadians. And you know next thing you know. There's this this country in all these provinces in and and that's that but that's not the story that indigenous people know the story that indigenous people know as settlers coming and tricking indigenous people negotiating treaties. And then writing down versions. That weren't agreed to in in the text of those treaties and there hasn't really been an effort by canadians to grapple with this deceit. That was really the origin of the relationship and we have mountains of evidence weather. It's the record versions of oral negotiations of treaties or written versions of treaties. That were written at the time of of treaty negotiation that tell us that that indigenous people never accepted this this deal in so we have this country that that road is a constitution that empowered itself to expand westward empowered itself to create legislatures and courts in multiple entire legal systems without actually getting the permission or even a sheeting with indigenous people. And i think that that's a huge gap in canada's legitimacy legitimacy to claim that it's a that it's a sovereign state that has this exclusive authority over all this territory when when indigenous people still very much
Local Teen’s ‘Big Year’ Breaks Chicago's Cook County Birding Record
"At all. But I have to say one of my favorite things of the fall, and it's It's happened for 10 years or so now. Are they both up there? Well, the so is is when the sand hill cranes fly over and I can hear them and they sound like this count to me. Sounds like turkeys, but they fly high in the air, and I was out for a walk it Ryerson Woods over this weekend. And heard them and was able to see them. I just think it's one of the coolest things. Carl Giammetti is on phone line. He is with the board member of the Chicago Order, Ornithology logical society. There's a story behind that I was too long to tell. And also on a phone line is issue. O'Brien, who set the record for most birds, identified for this year in Cook County for a year, I should say And issue is 17 years old issue. Welcome to W G. N Thank you so much for having me. You bet. Okay, so I didn't know you know what I'm talking about? What? Sandhill cranes. I'm sure right? Yes, I do. And this is the time that they're flying overweight. They fly way up above us. And but you can hear them. They're incredibly loud. Yeah, There are some incredible birds and they will migrate in really huge flocks. They make a lot of noise, too. So I think they definitely stand out to a lot of people whether or not your burger. But anyway yeah. Some of the most incredible migrating birds that passed through this area without a question. Okay, So you have identified well as of the copy I read in the Tribune 282 Birds. Is that where we're standing still? Um, I've actually gained a few more sense than, um I'm hoping that maybe I'll be lucky enough to hit the 2 90 marks, but we'll see one of the most recent ones you've seen. I'm sorry, but I think that I've added a couple. Um, some nice winter finches have been a highlight about it. Evening. Gross speak as well as the white Wing Cross. Still, another one has been spotted Toey and I'm blanking on other 10. The other one. How could I forget? Um, a cast in Sparrow, which is actually Um, one of the very few records of the species in the steak s. Oh, without question one of the most notable birds on my year list for sure. Sandhill cranes sound like for everyone. I'm glad you're okay. And it's just one of those sounds When I hear it. I just look up and I'm always raking leaves or walking somewhere in the fall, So that's pretty cool. Carl Geum Eddie is on the phone line as well from the Ornithological society in his Carl. So my producer Jeff Garlin. All day was mispronouncing and I said, Don't do it again because I want people to do it on the air, and then I screwed it up. But so issues having a quote unquote big year explain what a big year is for me. So essentially what a big year is that Ah Burger will choose a geographic area can be something that small is just your yard or could be something is largest the entire world. But county and state levels are usually probably the most popular ones to do because they're more manageable. And basically from January 1st at you know, at 12:41 A.m. 2 December 31st 11 59 pm You try to see his many different species of bird as you can. The nice thing about this story that I read in the Tribune, um, written by Morgan Green is the cooperation that's involved with other burgers to help someone in their big year. Can you tell me about that? Absolutely. Yeah, it's who did an incredible job, and especially with the added complication of covert closing a lot of like front sights. Hey, really discovered a lot of areas but really tol have a successful big year requires a lot of people sharing information about what birds they're seeing, and that's why I like to kind of say It's obviously issues achievement. He is deserve all the credit. But it also says something about the health of Ah local birding community that they're able to support new, big your records and things like that. So it's really a great thing to see. So is to explain that so you're a home watching TV or having dinner with your family, your phone chirps and all of a sudden, well chirps. How's that for upon you've got to get in the car and chased down the bird. Yeah, that is pretty much how it goes, I think Right now. We're very lucky to live in a time where we have technology at our fingertips. And I think with it a lot of birds as well because people are able to get the word out so quickly. So as soon as I get a call from a friend or a text message from our local Rare bird alert group chat. I will be in the car soon as I possibly can. And how? What's the further you? Did? I read your live in Evanston. Yeah. Okay, So if you're going to Southern Cook County or even Northwestern Cook County that's quite a hook. What's the farthest you've gone to wreck your to identify a bird? I think this year. I mean, I think I've gone is pretty much as far as the boundaries of cook County could take me. Um I'd say probably an hour and hour and 15 minutes is about as far as I've gone you've identified you said about 288 birds so far. You'd like to get to 300 Carl, how many different bird species are in Cook County? Well, you know, it varies based on you know, kind of weather patterns and the type of your it is some years we got more vagrants, Other others we don't but generally believed the cook list is somewhere close to 400. I think a few short of 400 here. So, Yeah, I
Names erased: How Indigenous people are reclaiming what was lost
"You don't have to look very far to find Examples York region Ontario was named after your can the UK Regina is named after Queen Victoria Regina being the Latin for Queen and well British Columbia obviously. For Christina. Gray reclaiming those place names is vital and it's personal. The Simpson and Denny lawyer is one of two researchers behind reclaiming indigenous place names. The policy report was released in October of two thousand nineteen by the Yellow had institute at Ryerson University in Toronto. I've reached her at her home in Prince Rupert BBC. Welcome to unreserved thanks for having me. So you are a CO researcher with Daniel Ruck and you looked into naming practices and the erasure of indigenous place names. What did you find? We really wanted to do a cross section of the history of settler colonial renaming practices from indigenous place names to places that are an English or in French, or there's also note anglicised version as well and none look at what is the practice of reclaiming indigenous place names that is happening in various places are ranging from like the Northwest Territories, Quebec B. C. Saskatchewan Manitoba to give. People a different idea of what's going on across these places and territories, and so how do original place names get changed? You know from from the original indigenous words into you know the things that they become how does that happen? Basically what's happening as a result of mostly white people or settlers who were? Changing the names to suit their whims, our desires or values when places were being changed from indigenous place names, saedtler place names like we have to remember the population of Canada at that time was a lot lower than it is now yes. There were indigenous peoples on these lands and territories, but there is also a different perspective by settlers at that time as well, and so they I think they wanted the the places to reflect. What was going on in their life for different ideas that were important to them. I can think that Greek in Vancouver I was looking into the two sisters, which is now called the lions and a lot of people go heikal lions in in Vancouver, and they kind of overlook how sound and you can see them pretty much any point in Vancouver. But before they were called the lions, they recalled the two sisters and it relates to an oral history. Of The squamish nation and it's an oral history that also relates to northerners like myself because the oral history it's it's about making peace offerings between the northern and the southern people's. used to war with each other and so that has much significance to me as a simpson person who used to live in Vancouver the two sisters in Vancouver is definitely one that I've heard about Are there any other striking examples of renamed places that you found y'all like almost makes me want to cry actually there's a place that was called Lake Squat Kit. It's like near Kenmore, but the word squad specifically, Drago Tori term to refer to indigenous women and. Terrible. Stereotypes associated with it as well, and those are based off of how some settlers song about indigenous. and so you can just think about like it's a Grayson, deeply misogynistic but. People like had such a personal connection to the place name of squash it and like didn't want it to be renamed and. But like that I think has such a affect the way that you call places. And think about there are so many missing murdered indigenous woman in Canada and how you referred to that something that. So awfully in calling squad like those have affects real-life affects on people it's not just about placing. And is renaming more. Can it be more than just a symbolic gesture you know on how is renaming more than just a symbolic gesture i? Guess I think we always hope that naming practices or the revitalization of indigenous place names will go beyond just symbolic gestures who also have substantial effects as well and sue. Enrich policy really wanted to also look at like what are some of the mechanisms. In which indigenous people are. Using policy and Law to revitalize indigenous place names and so we looked up land use planning conservation co-management. Events and also modern day treaties and self government agreements in which indigenous peoples are using these different mechanisms available to on to re attribute and revitalize indigenous placing you know this work is being done by indigenous people. So think it's really important to attribute that recognition to them.

How Infectious Disease Shaped American Bathroom Design
"The next time you go to take a trip to the loo look around because Elizabeth. Yuko bioethicist journalist. Wants you to know that. A lot of the things in our bathrooms are designed the way they are in part because of infectious disease the sink the toilet the bathtub. The toothbrush holder didn't expect that one towel racks the floor. I have white tile floor and White House in the wall so pretty much. You're telling me like almost all of the above. Yes Elizabeth wrote about this story for city lap to Bricusse cholera. The flu as our understanding of these diseases evolved how they spread the role hygiene plays and preventing them. So did the American bathroom and when we realized that built architecture and design could have some sort of influence on our health that became something that people wanted to adopt within their own homes today on the show. We present a brief toilet timeline and talk about how the current pandemic could bring about a new wave of bathroom. Related Innovation Now I think I'm going to be thinking about the bathrooms a lot more than usual. You're welcome we're talking with Elizabeth. Yuko about how infectious disease influenced the American bathroom. So let's start in the mid to late. Eighteen hundreds when Elizabeth says we started seeing the first sanitation and sewer networks in urban centers around the country. This made indoor plumbing possible so if you were wealthy there might be a small sink in the corner of your bedroom but it did take folks awhile to come around to the indoor toilet the toilets at this point. We're still outdoors even though while your families could put them in the house. There was this idea that sewer gases asthma's were coming up through the toilet and could make you sick so they were still using chamber pots in the House. And then having an outhouse to go outside so These chamber pots. If a you know wanting to spruce place up a bit had a wooden box that went over it and they were pretty looking sometimes. Intricately carved wooden boxes to stop. Hide the fact that it's a pot that you go to the bathroom and in your home. I wasn't sure you were going to send a theater so I'm going out together. It was a journey. So yes once that became a fixture then when bathrooms themselves sorted springing up and bathtubs became the norm and indoor plumbing became more prominent the fixtures. The bathroom work typically covered in would not the insides but the exterior parts of the toilet. The bathtub sink anything to make them look like real furniture and not part of a bathroom. Because at this point we still don't want we don't think about what we do in the bathroom and you know anything could make it look than that was was seen as a good idea in that changed right like in the Early Twentieth Century Nineteen early nineteen hundreds Kinda shifted away from would. Why was that so would was dark and porous and at this point we realized that germ theory was a thing and do that. These little crevices could house dirt and germs and dust and so the idea was to make everything as clean as possible and as easy to clean as possible so would really was not a great option. Especially this like intricately carved Victorian patterned would that they had all over their bathrooms and then also Taurean bathrooms. You had heavy drapery around the windows wallpaper. Sometimes rugs carpeting so it was a very kind of ornate plush kind of fuzzy set up in these Victorian bathrooms and that will change. Thank God essentially medical folks were able to convince people that indoor toilets connected to a public sewer system were better at stopping the spread of infectious disease. Also around this time. Elizabeth says there was a quote sanitation craze. Which meant goodbye. Would Hello Enamel. So a lot of brands would use sanitation as kind of marketing technique. Like we're the most sanitary restaurant or something like that. So this was something that was catching on and colour pre you probably know from toilets and bathtubs they pay your type of enamel that went over cast iron for bathtubs which then became our became used in the rest of the bathroom as well and that was marketed. As being sanitary hygienic right in in like someone around that time there was like a huge amount of curriculum in these communities and tuberculosis actually played a role in our bathroom design. Right yes because in the time before antibiotics rest sunlight and fresh air were the best known cures treatments for circular and when people got sick they if they had the opportunity went to a to Burkina Sanatorium to cure and these were purpose built. Buildings really had a big windows. Make sure there's enough and elation and sunlight air everything inside was white and easily cleaned and this idea of having the sterile white healing environment caught on for sin hospitals but then also when people's homes. Yeah so what about influenza? How did that shape things in in bathrooms back then so after the in one thousand nine hundred eighteen flu epidemic which also coincided with high levels of October Kilo says? There is an idea of having a second bathroom on the ground floor of your home. And this is in wealthier homes where you had an indoor bathroom little onto and yet here was that because we're getting daily deliveries things like ice and coal. You had this delivery person who was traipsing around your neighborhood. Going into all of your neighbor's homes picking up. Who knows what type of diseases and then coming into your home. So this person to wash their hands or use the restroom. While they're in your home they could do so right on the ground floor without having to go up the stairs and use the family's personal bathroom and spread germs up there which is so brilliant. I mean it's like it makes so much intuitive sense to me and I guess I never really thought about like the powder room being a bathroom for the stranger. I thought about it in like weird. I don't know what kind of Weird Puritan things are going on my mind but it was like away so you don't have use my bathroom in. I don't have to be embarrassed but it makes way more sense that it's like a bathroom that keeps people from coming all the way into your house. Yeah Brilliant Brilliant. Bathroom stuff okay. So can I just ask about one? Specific thing short is going on with like the fuzzy rugs and like the Fuzzy toilet seat covers. Why Elizabeth tell me why those exist. I wish I had better answers but once we got to a point where we understood germ theory. We had antibiotics. We're pretty confident. In our ability to cure ourselves of a lot of these illnesses. We got a little lazy when it came to decoration. Although lazy is not really the word. It's less focused on sanitation and hygiene and we had a vacuum cleaner and a washing machine. Just tossed that thing in the Washer and everything would be fine so we stopped thinking as much about how easy things to wipe or clean. And that's when stuff like. That came into bathrooms. So how do you think you know? It's it's it's hard to talk about this without thinking about the fact obviously that we are in the middle of a pandemic that might shape. You know or probably will shape us in a lot of different ways. Do you think bathrooms are going to change now after this virus outbreak? I don't know if they're gonNA change but one thing that I did write about was Lloyd alter one of the people interviewed from the Ryerson School of Interior Design He predicted that. We'll see a rise of vestibules and sink specifically end vestibules. So since they will you encounter as soon as you walk into. Someone's home so you could wash your hands right away And I think that absolutely makes sense. Yeah I I've started coming in my house through the back door because my kitchen sink is right there just to like wash my hands immediately when I come in the house if I leave. Yes we think that will be moving forward. That will be a focus and think any design is really going to be made with. What if we have to self isolate for months at a time again? We might have a day for example. Because you know that's not something that is common in America as it is in other parts of the world but now as people running at toilet paper. They're seeing that. It's actually a pretty great invention you know. I know that as journalists were not supposed to be political. But I'll just say I'm prob- A day and I just keep thinking about how much toilet paper I wouldn't need right now if I had one. Yeah I I'm pro day as well and And a user as well so it's yes I'm a fan and I'm glad that I mean I wish it didn't go pandemic for us to realize this is a useful thing but I'm I'm glad we're there. Yeah so you wrote about how overtime humans kind of went back and forth between responding to you know like trauma that comes along with massive infectious disease by trying to make ourselves feel a little bit more comfortable or by implementing design features that make our homes and bodies easier to clean. And I just think it's going to be kind of interesting. You know what combination of those things happen with corona virus. Have you thought about that? Yes I think? A lot of people probably have even if they haven't realized it because the past few weeks we've been spending almost all of time in our own homes staring at the walls of our house or apartment in ways that we probably never had before. And so whether we're in the bathroom washing our hands for twenty second intervals or for sitting in the kitchen or living room looking at how we've decorated moving forward. Republicans take this pandemic and this time you've spent at home into consideration when making design choices right and I think there's going to be like kind of a renewed focus about even just like thinking of those spaces because you know I didn't think about the fact that I needed to come in and wash my hands as soon as I came from the outside until this and so now I know this seems silly but like I enter my house differently now. It's not silly. It's I mean. We have to adapt changes because of public health situations all the time and this is just another example of that okay. Elizabeth honestly thank you so much for this piece so so interesting. Thank you so much. Glad someone else's enthusiastic about bathrooms. Also I mean yes I mean seriously though. I will not think of a bathroom the same way when I enter it now. And that's on you. I'm touched
Netflix's 'Love Is Blind' brings the reality dating show into 2020
"Netflix plan to take over television has extended to dating shows for a while. But perhaps they've never made one so weird so baffling at so cringe. Inducing Lee embarrassing for everyone involved as love is blind and you probably know someone who's watching it then what the show insists on calling an experiment. Couple sit in separate cells that they call pods where they can hear each other but not see each other and once they've had a conversation or two if they're getting along they get engaged and only then do they meet will any of them. Make it to the altar. I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. We're talking about the NETFLIX series. Love is blind on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR joining me and Steven from NPR. West is one of our most treasured friends. Who the record should show. We did not force to watch. Love is blind Sam Sanders the host of. It's been a minute. Hello Sam I would. A page ought to be on this show. We should also point out that Y'All can't see me in her. We're trying to figure out whether we can possibly have a meaningful conversation county each other so before we get to deeply into it. The basic idea of this show is that you start with some men and some women they all sit and if you think of them as little tiny prison cells with furniture and painted walls they are separated by a wall that they can't see through but they can hear through so it's basically like having a conversation with someone in two adjoining phone booths. And so they talk to each other and then if they like each other enough to get engaged without ever having met or spoken to a non television based situation they move out of those pods and they go on vacation and live together and see if they really really want to get married they all have to have a wedding and go up to the altar. And then when you're up there you have to decide. Are you going to say yes? Are you going to say now? Dump you forever Steven. You're a viewer of trashy television. Way Back leaving. Some fairly trashy dating shows enough that I can peg this show as a combination of the bachelor married by America and Mr Personality hosted by Monica Lewinsky. Boy Cut. What did you think of this one? You know the first episodes I struggled a little bit. I found it very stressful. It's got some of that kind of falsely generated conflict. It's a dating show. I've kind of weaned myself off of the Bachelor Bachelorette for kind of ethical reasons as much as anything and getting back into a dating show. Took me a couple episodes. At which point I could not stop watching it. The instruction going in with Stephen. I know you're very busy right now. Even just watch three or four. I've watched all ten and burned through them. Basically in one sitting one of the things that makes this show. So Benjamin is that it's on Netflix. So there are among other things no commercials and no reason to break into the show and say begun. And then I'll come up the senior about to see and then you come out of commercials. Here's a recap of what you saw. Before the commercial break with the bachelor going back but he's Ryerson on streaming services edited versions of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette where they cut that crap out and then each episode will be like twenty six minutes long. So this doesn't have that but it's centered on this ludicrous false choice between getting married or never seeing each other again. Which is down like they're not allowed to subvert the show in any way they're not allowed to say like f you were dating. There's sort of forced to do one or the other and they. They all seem to buy into this experiment in a way. That is very silly but at the same time it is a weirdly intoxicating show that I ultimately enormously enjoyed even though it's very very stupid. Yeah I basically agree with that. Take Sam a hit me. What did you think? Oh Man so. There are two big reasons. I love this show one for what it says about net flix and to for what it says about what we normally do. And don't say about love one. This really shows that like in spite of trying to be the place for Prestige Film. Net flicks is actually really good at reality. Tv You'll recall. Cheer you'll recall tied in with Marie Condo more queer eye or nailed it or next and fashion or the glass blow reality show followed by the circle and now this. They're making really good addictive reality. Tv and that's for several reasons. You know some of Stephen pointed out. They don't have to commercial breaks thing. Let these stories flow and organic and then in many ways they are not overproducing this stuff when I compare What's going on with. Love is blind to like the bachelor. There seems to be less direct manipulation by the producers. They'll be plotlines in the bachelor of where the had the couple go to a country music concert but wait turns out the country. Music singer is one of their excess craziness. Ensues you see the last of that with the blind makes it feel more earnest. Even though still fake I know I know right at the very least. They're better at hiding it. It doesn't feel conspicuous. Whatever manipulation there is and you know they're certainly is like we're all going to happen to meet up with my parents and I. It does become kind of something that you know is is staged in some of the same ways but I do agree that they're better at making it feel like something that could happen in a real person's life. Yeah so that's the first thing like this to me is evidence that whether they like it or not. Netflix is now better at reality. Tv then movies and with that the second thing it says to me is the things we do or do not talk about publicly when it comes to courtship. I think this show is really brave and having these people who are strangers very early on in their quote unquote relationships talk about race. Talk about physical appearance. Talk about money. One of the couples has to deal with the fact that one is black and one white. And they discuss it. The entire time very openly and candidly and responsibly. Another couple Barnett. And what's her name? Maria she's flat broke in one episode. She says to him my credits crap. I don't always have a job a few months ago. I was Outta my car. What you think about that. You would never see that on the bachelor you would. And most couples don't talk about that until it's too late so to see. That disgust candidly on this show. I find it kind of refreshing. Well it's one of those things where it's both early and too late because on the one hand only known each other for a couple of weeks but on the other hand there are already engaged so I agree that there's that funny. There's this funny conversation between a SAM mentioned Barnett. And amber where? It's not just that she's saying like I'm broke or whatever and he asks her. How many days a week she works and she says as many as I feel like she says I work to live. I don't live to work. Which is one of those things red flag that could be as you said. There's such a fine line between my queen and I know the same way about folks to say that as folks who say. I don't do drama. It's like Oh no. You don't drama. Well right actually do drama. You sort of have to theoretically talk about those things but you have none of the history that might make talking about those things in some ways both easier and harder. But you have to do it anyway. The part that I found most jarring to tell you the truth was like the very first time someone in this show says I love you. I almost crawled out of my skin of so weird so weird. The other thing I think is amazing about it is the people keep saying this is crazy and I keep wanting to say yes. It is run. Are we nuts? Yes in like that is what makes me. What's become the saddest story line in this show? And this is the story of Mark in Jessica. They have a great emotional connection. But Jessica doesn't think that mark is physically her type. He's not tall enough not Nordic enough not blonde enough not white enough and that becomes clear very early on and she never just says that he's also ten years younger than she is and exactly former relationship. Where if it were a family pet you would phen. Is it out of mercy? Twenty hours before this show.
Bill Murray stars in 'Groundhog Day'-inspired Super Bowl commercial
"That will here's you know they do this thing called ad meter and so think something that advertising agencies use to rate the effectiveness of their commercial some people read respond to the commercials they have their top commercials that are out today and then the commercial the people responded to most positively last night was the Bill Murray commercial to Bill Murray cheap groundhog day commercial there was only shot last week up in Woodstock with bill you never pricing is our role from the movie they brought back get bills brother Brian Doyle Murray I was part of the spot the guy that played in and my a Ryerson it was back in the I corps Phil and Steve doll by the way did he the the voice the the on the radio the DJ on the radio on the radio clicks on is Chicago's and Steve doll you know what I didn't catch that I missed that done many emails about it yesterday nice down any minute ago so it goes fever yeah that's that's kind of
How to avoid epic Thanksgiving failures
"Hey welcome back to Forman Scott Shafer here today for Michael Krasny and for the rest of the hour we're delving into the thanksgiving holiday and a lot of people will tell you that thanksgiving is their favorite holiday the food it's not divided by religious traditions but of course it can also be very stressful specially if you're hosting the event and so for the rest the are we're going to delve into how to avoid epic failures when it comes to the meal you're cooking in the entertaining all that entails what to do if you forget the key ingredient for example or if there are family or guests who are want to talk about politics or something else is going to be a little dicey joining me to talk about that maybe dish out some advice Cassidy Olson kitchen and cooking editor for reviewed dot com welcome thanks for joining us Hey thanks for driving me also Margie Ryerson is a family and marriage therapist based in Wildwood creek and Margie good to have you as well I'm sure we'll have some questions about dealing with unruly family members as to what it is about I guess it's just it's always been an issue I guess but it seems like it's more acute now in this particular area that we're in but I want to begin with the food and the meal and and Cassie also what what in in terms of your experience what like what are some of the most common food related problems our kitchen problems that come up at thanksgiving yes I think things giving can be such a stressful time because of course the food is so central and everyone's so excited to you know actually died and then there's a million moving parts often you're eating at like two PM you're eating much earlier in the day then usually would be so I think the biggest issue that most people have is just the timing aspect and of course you know today with thanksgivings two days out now is a great time to get be getting ready for thanksgiving for not already ready so I think really people are you know not defrosting Turkey's long enough which I've had the same issue in the past they're not you know planning out dishes in advance about trying to she's in advance they're not cooking in advance so you know they got up at the crack of dawn and are scrambling all day you don't get to spend as much time with the family yeah that's inevitable but I think preparation is really key and then you know of course I'm sure people of trying to deep fry Turkey is our snatched her keys are do weird things with her case yeah I always an issue as well and probably not a great time to try out recipes you've never tried yeah probably not a great time to just start launching new things in your family I think in general if you have any time at this point it's kind of crunch time but cooking in advance is a great idea but yeah I think the right time to do the tried and true is I think that's why it's a you know holiday tradition tradition
Obama endorses Canada's Trudeau for re-election
"The former US president Barack Obama has urged Canadians to reelect prime minister Justin Trudeau in a tweet backing that Mister Trudeau will welcome as he faces a tough battle in the general election next week the campaign has been dominated my policies but by a series of scandals the BBC's Persian Gulf and has been looking at the impact these scandals of hat on political discourse in Canada twenty nineteen has been the year of the scandal in Canadian politics prime minister Justin Trudeau violated the conflict of interest act when he tried to convince his former Attorney General to help SNC Lavalin avoid a criminal trial photo of Justin Trudeau dressed as a Latin in brown face separate instances have emerged showing Trudeau in black face every sure never actually was an insurance program despite the fact that I've got his biography here this is officially said before entered public life and to work in the private sector as an insurance roping a fourteen year old video of conservative leader Andrew here arguing against gay marriage will help convince voters in the run up to Canada's general election on the twenty first of October news coverage social media and political debate have all been dominated by a series of revelations about party leaders and back benchers alike the popularity of prime minister Justin Trudeau took a serious hit this year when Canada's ethics commissioner ruled that he tried to improperly influence the legal strategy of his Attorney General that seem to kick start a race particularly between Mr Trudeau's liberals and his main rivals in interest yours Conservative Party both sides have attacked each other for failing to expel backbench candidates who tweeted racist or sexist messages in years past one prospective Tory MP has been criticized for a friendship with a far right online media personality accused of being a white supremacist the problem is that instead of supplementing the political policy discussion the focus on muckraking has all too often replaced it here's how Andrew Scheer responded in a televised debate when asked about protecting Canada's interest on a global stage of course I will always stand up for Canada and defend our interests all around the world but Justin Trudeau only pretends to stand up for Canada you know he's very good at pretending things he can't even remember how many times he put black face on it's a noticeable change from the last Canadian election in twenty fifteen when issues like the environment the economy refugee resettlement and the well being of indigenous communities struggling with health care infrastructure and safety took center stage Daniel Rubinstein is an associate professor at Ryerson university in Toronto where he researchers political campaigns and communication definitely I think that the important stuff gets left behind there's not been that much talk about ideas and policy and where the country's going and these kind of big things that we ought to perhaps be interested in and in particular issues of you know indigenous rights and governance and so on sadly I don't think I've ever really got as much attention as they should and even less so when campaigns are driven by things that are not policy related at all the race to rid of damaging details from candidates pass has also led to misinformation earlier this month the Conservative Party issued an official press release demanding to know why Justin Trudeau left his job as a high school teacher several years ago it appeared to be a reference to a widely debunked internet conspiracy theory that suggests Mr Trudeau was sacked because of some severe misconduct it's hard to predict how these various transgressions will influence Monday's vote but there can be little doubt that Canada's politicians have found a new way to tear each other down that report was by peace at girlfriend and you can hear more of pieces series on the Canadian election in the coming days here on the BBC world

What does an election look like when local news is dying?
"You probably don't need anyone to tell you that local media outlets newspapers in particular are in trouble. We in the media have told you all about that. And if you're listening to a daily news podcast, you probably care at least a little bit about the disappearance of these publications. I hope so anyway, the problem though, is often framed in specifics for the industry, which is understandable since we're talking about the media covering the media, and we do like to do that. That means what you hear is about. How many people will lose their jobs who's making cuts which newsrooms are impacted and that matters, of course. But maybe it's not the most relevant way to communicate to you the public. What's actually happening? We have an election coming up. You may have heard it is a pretty important one given the current state of the world. So what happens when a media trying like hell to do everything on a shoestring budget has to cover a huge national campaign, but also three hundred and thirty eight local campaigns. What kind of coverage can these outlets afford to take on? And what's the first to go when they can't what replaces that kind of coverage. What options do voters who want to be informed have to seek out the analysis they need, and of course, how will savvy political campaigns take advantage of this situation and take advantage of you? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. April Lindgren is a professor of journalism at Ryerson university. More importantly, she runs the local news research project, which digs down into exactly this. Thanks for joining US, April. My pleasure. Can you? I try to give me a sense using any paper in particular of the state of local news political coverage right now, I was doing some research recently and looking at a paper called red deer advocate serving red deer, and now Berta hundred thousand people, and I spoke with a journalist there who retired a few years ago, but was still involved in the local union, and she had some pretty interesting in sobering store stories to tell me about a newsroom that back in two thousand twelve had twenty four people still in it and today going into the federal election coming up. This fall is now down to about nine people who are going to be providing political coverage of the local races. And you know, the leader comes through town covering that as well. And. Part of the story that she told me was, you know, years ago in previous elections not in two thousand fifteen but before that they used to do was called a ride around. So that's when a journalist and a reporter quote, and they ride around in the writings, and they talked to people get a sense of what's going on get a feel for the mood who's who's doing? Well, who's in trouble? And that was eliminated in two thousand fifteen and isn't going to happen this time either. So you have sort of less coverage of in-depth like that fewer writings because they just don't have the people to do it. And also doing stories that are more probing in-depth because there's a missive from management. That's a each reporter has to produce at least two stories day and do some briefs short snippets of stories issues. Come up, maybe do so shoot some video. And when you got that on your plate as a sort of daily mandate. There's not a lot of time to produce any sort of in-depth profiles of the candidates or look at issues in more depth than find out where local people stand on those issues, and and explain white matters. So with. Out that stuff with reporters having no time to kind of do more than the straightforward stories where do people get that in depth coverage? Does it exists still? Well, I think if you're lucky enough to live in a bigger city where there's a sort of a bigger pool of media chances are you can get a little bit more information. Now, keep in mind, I'm talking about coverage of local candidates and the races to represent a writing not the leaders not the leaders race because you know, you can find out all sorts of stuff online about what's Justin Trudeau is going to be doing that day or or or Andrew Scheer that's going to be there. But the the issue is what's happening locally in. How do you? Hold those local candidates accountable. So if there's an incumbent what's that income and done for the last four years that they've been in Ottawa or in the provincial capital. So holding power accountable is a big part of what local journalists do. And also, you know, people think that well who cares? I mean the local race. It's the national race that really determines what happens in a campaign and. What the leaders are doing. And that's what's going to determine how the election turns out. That's what we talk about in the national conversation. Yeah. Absolutely. But there's actually been some recent research that shows about ten percent of all writings are decided by people based on who the local candidates are ruler. So you know, that's that's enough. That's the difference between a majority and a minority or between winning. And losing those local races do matter and to the extent that people are covering them, the coverage matters, but what happens when reporters aren't on the ground. Well, one of the things that happens is candidates start shaping their own messages and putting their own message messages out. So they're using a lot of social media direct mailings. And basically they are telling their version of reality. Here's what I did the last four. Yes. An army by. Yeah. You could be sure they're not saying here's what I did. In the last four years, you might want to think about my record. And whether he really wanted me on my wins and losses here. Yeah. Absolutely. So, you know, people say, well, I'm getting the information. I can go to the candidates website. They send me emails. They I you know, I can find that out. But people forget is that journalists do is they have the time because they're not they're paid to sort of take the time to look at Ken how the candidate or the incumbent voted what they said in parliament. Did they bring forward any legislation? How responsive were they to local constituents like did they ever show up in the writing? And you're only going to get that sort of coverage. If you've got a reporter who's got some time, and is paid to actually ask those questions. So why is this kind of
