Behind the Book: Nine Lives Over the North Atlantic with Kerry McCauley
"You must be somebody who really really loves adrenaline jockey that's for. Sure. Yeah, I sure do got to keep the heart going. So you talk about in this book single engine over the Ocean. Boy Really. Sure. Sure. They gotta they gotta get. There's someplace and you gotta find somebody stupid enough to do it so. that. It takes a lot of skill to do that, and so a lot of times people ask though. I know we talk about faring airplanes, 'cause people, purchase planes. There's a lot of reasons to do it I. I'm in a building here where we have a ferry company downstairs. I always think of putting a small plane in a container and shipping it would probably be the best way. So so why would you ferry a plane over the water when you could ship it in a container? Well in a word money I mean it's expensive to take him apart. Shipping is not that expensive expensive to put it back together. But you know last time to play I've heard lots of stories of people doing that and they get there and there's a couple of vital parts missing from the plane and. Becomes a problem. So then they would go toward someone like you that can actually has first of all the knowledge. To fly an airplane, the water and also has more than that has the guts to do. I I'd have to say when you're preparing for this, there's got to be two things involved. I would think there's a psychological aspect and there's also the the whole part of preparing from paperwork and more of a knowledge aspects. So it's talk first about the the knowledge you know what type of things do you need to not do this type of a trip? Well number one you've got to figure out, can the play make the trip? You know what route are you gonNA take you get find fuel stops you need any overflight permits arguments, put ferry tanks in the plane that's kind of the big one. On a few need to make some really long legs over the ocean, most planes can't do it on their standard fuel. So you've got to put very tanks of the plane. So ferry tanks. What are those? Are they metal or a rubber? I freeze the metal ones. They do make rubber ferry tanks at collapses there being used, but the metal ones are more reliable. You take the seats out of the back the out of the back of the plane and put them in the tail basically in. Put the ferry tanks as far forward as you can for CG and. There you go. Extra. When you're when you do that, that's going to be a bit of a cost to the person right to that's part of the cost of doing the first flight. Yeah Yeah. But usually if you've got very tanks in their lifetimes, you can make up the cost or that by skipping stops especially these days a lot of times landing permits and especially foreign countries get to be really expensive. But when you have fourteen hours a range you can. Literally make half the stops that you normally would end if you didn't tanks. So it's Kinda Nice. So each of those stops assuming there are some costs involved in and that type of thing as far as like land permits I'll a definite landing permits these days in foreign countries are getting to be really ridiculous plus these days. Almost every foreign airport requires you to have a handler. Which is adding extra costs me back when I first started three years ago we did everything ourselves you shop at a foreign airport that you'd never been to that. You don't speak the language you just have to dive in fine landing fees get fuel weather food if you got time and do it yourself now they make you hire handler which is nice but expensive. So. Do you really need the handler? No Dan was really bothered me most of the time they're not. They're not very helpful first of all, and it's just the money's right off. You know right off the top every time you spend on your on the road is coming right out of your pocket. So it's It's going to shell out a few hundred dollars or more on a stop just had some guy walk alongside you. Yeah. How did you learn to do all this? I started back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety for flying for a company called Orient Air out of Saint Paul Minnesota. and. My friend's father owned the company. We were army recruits together in the National Guard. and. They needed a pilot ninety job actually was a actually spent a few years trying to get this enough hours to get this job. And got. Hired. Off on the road I went. So yeah. It's some mentors that could help you out Is that something that you would suggest if someone was thinking again, getting into this get was somebody I. Oh, definitely there's so many things that you don't think about when you're getting ready to make especially along ocean crossing. The the weather considerations are. Paramount I. Mean you run unexpected headwinds? Don't leave yourself enough reserve. You might come up short nets usually considered inconvenient
[Unedited] Michael McCarthy with Krista Tippett
"I'm so delighted to be. Speaking with you. I can't tell you how much I love your book and I'm telling everyone about it. Yeah. It's as marked up. Emmy Book I have ever read. In the Bible including the Bible and I picked it up just on a table in a bookstore in Saint Paul Minnesota Twin cities. Different questions for me before we get going I think. Okay. I'm happy to respond to you. Yeah I don't I. So I don't usually do Generally do book interviews but really, and I've dug little bit and I've also looked at your. Some. Of Your other writing but I really. So so we're we're not talking about the book, but essentially we're talking about. Everything, the book is about. So I yeah so Chris I think we're good great. Okay. Yes and so we have a nice amount of time to have a big. Real wandering conversation. I would like to start I I I. Start Most of my interviews with a question just just wondering about The religious or spiritual background of someone's childhood I find. That is a very fertile place and everybody's imagination whatever their story is. It's full of questions and searching and softness so. However you would. However, you would begin to to think of that. How would you? How would you Described the religious or spiritual background of your childhood. I would use a curious phrase to describe. What I am now I would describe myself as an ethnic Catholic. Okay. that was a phrase I can't claim authorship of it was used by. British woman politician about twenty years ago meaning there's I grew up a Roman Catholic. and I have abandoned the faith. The formerly at any right but the belief system if not not necessarily. Belief in heaven now but the. The sense of right and wrong I think Stays with you all your life and you relate to it. Was it Mary? McCarthy who read a book called wants to Catholic. And I think the sense of right and wrong and also I think he'll go strong sets. Of Original Sin Yeah I. Think I'm quite aware that is a very dark side to the species mom. If, we can say that these days I think the the species is still called mind it's a human being. and so even though I'm not formally religious. I, like to think I. Suppose that I carry with me what people might describe as a religious sensibility. And I feel like right at the beginning of of your book The Moss snowstorm nature enjoy. You I mean this is this is a this is a book about our bond with the natural world. Right and you and you start it. It's also woven, and that bond is both civilizational. It's at once civilizational and species something about our species, but it's also personal. and so and you do we've that personal story all the way through your reflection on this large subject. End You know you're use the word a soul in this way rather early you describe your mother's illness and She she was away for a time institutionalized and. One of the things that happened to you as a child is it you you had a lack of feeling about that. that you could perceive, but then you describe this day. And here's just the sentences. That there was a singular window. Of observing butterflies and he said when I was a skinny kid in short pants, butterflies entered my soul. So where'd you just tell a little bit of that story as and why that is a vantage point for you on again, this large civilizational issue. It was really just a personal way. Of, my own way through my own personal experience. Of. Beginning explore. the strange conundrum which it seems to me that we can actually love very fiercely the natural world I we sort of take that for granted as commonplace. But as I got older, it seemed to me rather curious phenomenon because after all the natural world is only the the environment from which we emerge to species like every other species. Unlike. Every other species there are two things that they're not sure world has for us. One is danger. One is utility because the natural world can be dangerous and it can kill you. You can have thousands of people killed by snakes in India every year still or not show world can be a great advantage. It can provide you food and shelter and various other things. And all species are aware even if instinctively of these things but we have a third thing, which is that we can actually love the natural world.
Reading the New Testament Letters: Q & A
"How to read the New Testament Letters. Let's start with a question from Damian in Minnesota Hey. Tim and John. My name is Damian. Leverett and I live. Live in Saint Paul. Minnesota I'm a classically trained theater actor and performer, and listening to these episodes has made me wonder if it could be a fruitful practice for churches to have people like me. Trained in speaking complex texts in an active embodied way, read the letters in their entirety in live gatherings. What do you think about this idea is? It's stupid. Are there any pitfalls or problems that you'd foresee? I'd love your advice. Thanks for all you do all right. I'll respond first Damian your idea is the opposite of stupid. It's actually brilliant and so important, and yes, you should do it. No questions asked. All Right? That's my first response. was here's John for sure? Yeah, you. We talked about how these letters were originally heard. Read Aloud. Yeah, that's right and that there is something about. Hearing it all in one sitting that helps you Kinda feel the shape of it in a different way. I noticed when I read. I get really stuck like what did that sentence mean? I don't keep moving. But, if you're in a situation, where just being read aloud in listening to an audio version of the Bible, that's really powerful, so so if you have a vision for using your experience in theater. That's awesome. Yes, John and I. Both knew a guy named Jason Nightingale. Who had just ministry nonprofit, he called word sewer ministries, but essentially he memorized all the books of the New Testament. Did he do all of them well? I don't know that for certain, but the sampling that I. Know that I've heard him. Recite before makes me think he's for sure got. From the gospel of Mark to the book of revelation Romans, Hebrews. Fijian's so we back when we were in our twenties, heard him. Yeah back in the nineties. Nineties Nightingale. But Man. This guy traveled all over the US and the world reciting books of the New Testament and then sometimes he would give short little homily. Reflection afterwards, but his main thing was to recite whole books the New Testament in one go for groups of people with such a booming. Yes, wonderful destroy had a uniquely amazing voice yeah. So yes Damien I. It's a wonderful idea. It should be normal I. Think this kind of ministry should be normal in the life of a local church. Yeah, having somebody who's like the memorizer and reciter of books of the New Testament. So guts be Damian. Go forth and memorize and recite his question from Lauren in Indiana Hi John and Tim. This is Lauren and Fort Wayne Indiana I'm listening to your conversation on the New Testament letters with my usual rapt attention, and in episode three is John expressed some frustration that the theology. The New Testament isn't more thoroughly connected and expurgated. It made me wonder. Wonder whether Paul as a Hebrew scripture scholar, who understood that it was as you call it. He Meditation Literature. Do you think it's possible that he crafted his epistles in that same way so that people would need to hear them and read them over and over to really get the depth of meaning just curious. Thanks for all you do God bless. It's great question. I thought that was really insightful. Question. It is true especially Paul the his letters are hard to understand. There are or you could say there are many parts that are difficult to follow. And you remember at some point in the series. I mentioned passage in Second Peter where Peter felt the same way That's right. Yeah, yeah, he says there are some things of Paul's letters that are hard to understand. However the question is. Is that intentional? He could. Is it a bug? My hunch is that for Paul's letters that it was expensive to write. Letters can talk about this future episodes. How how letters were actually produced and how expensive it was and the process involved, but I think part of it was just the way he communicated through these letters and the way his mind work. was like a beautiful mind. In terms of. Is this guy crazy or is this guy brilliant? I think it seems you can just feel bursting out of sentences in Galicians that there's whole volumes. He could riot on what's underneath just a couple of sentences and so? I think you actually could. You. Do need to read them over and over at least I have for years, but I'm not sure it's necessarily because he crafted the way. The Hebrew literature is crafted I. Think it's he was raised on that literature, and so he certainly is shaped by it and talks things by, but I think it's also just the nature of him his unique personality, and then the letter medium. How would you think I hear what you're saying there? Yeah, he not designed with the same maybe. Maybe intention analogy that scroll in the Tanakh would have been designed potentially, but he had internalized that design, and that tradition, and that tradition so much that it undergirds everything. He sang by Medicare, eating on Hebrew Bible, and then meditating on what Paul's writing. Yes, as cool chemistry that happens totally which I've noticed. Yeah, yeah, working on this project with you so many things come pop a lot more when when I start to see the things that that Paul was seeing And which are things that you've been pointing out these patterns and themes inside?

Is Angela go theor the associate director of Minoshe key and a young and also here too with the with the group is executive director. deb Foster her and she is a Saint Croix Ojibway from Eagle Clan. My pleasure to have both of them here with US and Andromeda turn turn to you. You've done a lot of work. I'm looking at your bio and see That you have worked with the county in family services and just knowing along the repetition or how many times young people are entering into foster care and then they age out and then there's no place to turn talk to me about how being there air at this critical time and offering them a space to not only the rest of their head but also gained a job development skills as well as even just I have to be self sustaining talked me about this critical time period. In what some of the things that the center is working on I I always ask people to reflect on the young people that they have in their personal lives and the natural support systems. That are there error. And how many times when you're C Eighteen nineteen twenty one. Twenty two year olds in your personal life that When they have love family to fall back on at times when they're having a hard time or they've They need a place to stay. Or they've transitioned positioned in their jobs or they're you know. They're struggling in some way when they have a natural place to go back to a lot of the youth that we are working with because as they have spent such extended time in foster care that they've been moved around a lot through their youth. They don't have those places to land The one thing with young and his dad was saying having been Serving the community since nineteen eighty. Three is that it is become that place for a lot of youth and families that they know when they're having a hard time that this is kind of their soft place to land that there are people here that can help and and so this expands our ability to do that for this youth in this age group is that this is a critical time when you are learning learning to live independently when they're wanting to you know find employment and look for career pass and go back to college and when you don't have how those supports Built in because you've been in foster care because you've had time and placement or been homeless this gives you more of that time name and all of the services That you could need as a jumping off point are here for you and we're here to build those relationships and to help them take that next step I'm just excited that we have an opportunity now to work with these US more closely for a more extended period. Take time to help them. Get through this point of transition and so tell me a little bit more about how it works. How permanent is the housing and some some of the support services that are going on Angeles? START US off yeah so youth enter the program Between the ages of eighteen to twenty twenty four years old The youth that are coming in have different backgrounds of homelessness and Foster Care The nature permanent supportive housing is that they could live in this housing forever if they wanted. There isn't a timeframe I'm in which they would need to leave. They just need to enter between the ages of eighteen to twenty four and they have to continue to qualify for the subsidies that are or a helping to assist with their rent During the time that they are there the support services that we have we have to transition coaches that start working with the youth rate rate at the point of referral. And they're the ones who are working with you to collect their housing history. All their vital documents they information that they need in order to you. Qualify for the housing and those transition coaches continue to work with those youth to help them. That goal plans navigate resources and everything that they need on that and they're like housing goals we have a full time youth and family therapists. That is dedicated to the building and that therapists can do individual work Couples therapy family therapy is needed really to really meet. Whatever the needs are for that youth To help them be healthy in their community and their personal relationships. We also have a fulltime cultural specialist. Who is is trained in suicide prevention and post mention that is dedicated to the building? And he's there to help work with the youth To you meet their cultural needs and to help them. Connect back with their own communities as well We have the ability to have ceremonies. We have a cultural cultural activities center. We have medicine gardens and sweat lodge on site and so he's really the coordinator of that for all of the youth We are also adding a safe harbor case manager which is dedicated to working with you who are at risk of or have been involved in sexual exploitation and so the case management will be dedicated Just to that kind of aspect and helping them navigate gate through the resources and the sensitive nature of that and then there's property management that's onsite with our partners that help them with their lease and like the money portion portion of everything and then the We're also staff twenty four hours a day so there's always some support staff here for the residents when they need it into my turn to. Oh you balancing all of this because it sounds like a lot and it sounds like the things that often are left out of the equation win A lot of times we start trying trying to help our youth Trying to get them going faster. Start on life. How is all of this being balanced or is this part of the blueprint to make sure that all of these things were there Not only supplying a place to live. But supplying a place to thrive tell me more dip. Yes we In addition to what Angela has said we have the building was built around The the all of the needs of the young people. So for instance we have Circular gathering centers on each floor where Kids will be able to gather We have the purposely did efficiency apartments because we wanted at their full apartments full kitchen refrigerator. Everything bathroom beds living area but we wanted them to network with new folks And have an opportunity to establish new networks and We also have a workforce training center so A Complete Computer Center Training Center. Where kids can do everything? I'm from working on covering letters Building resumes doing job search learning technical skills And and types of activities. That are involved in building those opportunities for young people We also have a Fitness Center down in the lower level providing opportunities for young people to strengthen their health and and wellbeing physically physically and also the teaching kitchens that you mentioned on each floor to Help kids learn how to cook. And how to cook healthy We also have as mentioned a cultural activities center. So that is where all the kids can learn how to make their own regalia and do beadwork and make their own drums. But more importantly learned the history behind all of these things We have an entrepreneurship program that We have for young people that were putting together that will allow you to work onsite. We have a credit store which which I like to describe as kind of like a mini walgreens and so Use can earn vouchers that they can use in these stores and it has everything a walgreens would have but it also provides an opportunity for young people to work there and they can learn some Shaath work skills such as profit and loss and stocking talking and ordering cashiering things like that Also we have a food shelf and we also have a clothing store so these are all opportunities for young people to garner some software skills And we have numerous or as partners throughout our community. That are going to be working with us as well. And providing internships and workforce skills and Places where they can establish a ged or finish high school learn about post secondary education.

"We're going to go ahead and start off by saying hello to our guests. WHO's joining us out of Saint Paul Minnesota deb foster? She is the executive director for the India young and she is in mcroy. Ojibway from the Eagle Quin deb. Thank you for joining us for another one. Far Native America calling discussions thank you and how inspiring to just hear what this center aims to do especially for our homeless youth I and especially this age group. We know this is A group that often is left out left in the margins Tell us a little bit about when all all of this got started to make a special place for this group. Yes well The India Young Center has been and was started back in nineteen. Eighty three in response to Youth have been homeless And the red schoolhouse. K. through seven Educational Program noticing that they're young people were becoming homeless and so we started the emergency shelter alter and from there have just continued to grow our programs to be responsive to the needs of our community. And so we have Mini any genocide which is a prevention program. Our shelter Oh Yuck Gee which is a program for Equa court monitoring and services family advocacy children's mental health. We have a Transitional Housing Program for sixteen to twenty one year old and so it was probably about nine years ago when We realized that we were seeing our eighteen year. Enrolled in Nineteen Year olds dropping back into homelessness. And the reasons that many of us are aware of include turning eighteen and so therefore they're losing all of their benefits They're aging out of foster care with no place to go Many of them had extended their Short term housing options and so that was a very big concern. Earn for us and that many of our young people were not able to complete their educational goal or to sustain gainful employment -pointment and certainly we're struggling with Mainstream housing options and so forth. So we Began a vision that that we needed to capture these young people and give them some of the long term healing opportunities a -tunities and programming opportunities in housing opportunities. These young people needed in order to be able to sustain Those activities that they were already involved in such as education and workforce and trying to find housing and so forth so We I started out very early on with a lot of Community engagement and Connecting with young people who were homeless or had been homeless at the Previously to gather the information that was necessary to lead this project So everything that we did with this project was really designed around what the young people who were struggling needed it and wanted such as They wanted to be able to be close to transportation. So we're right. On the Light Rail. They wanted to be close to education food. Jobs things like that and so That was the beginning of our vision and From there are we just Did some early connections with the community members with our legislators The city the state eight and just kind of garnering a lot of support providing a lot of education a why this was so prevalent and why this was so needed and with that then we began to move forward to establish the right partners To make this a reality So it really was a response to our young people and Those eighteen particularly eighteen to twenty four year roles. That were falling right back into homelessness In deb this whole time as the planning was going on you're going to meetings Discussions were were happening. I'm sure your mind drifted back to these young individuals and what it would really mean for them to have a permanent place to stay and really get that footing to go to another a step in their life when you were thinking of those individuals. How much did that drive you to to? I WanNa make sure this happened to see those doors open. It was the core of everything that This at this building is We have as most of us know we have the highest disparities of of education and unemployment poverty and It's the reason is we know this is that our young on people are struggling with a sense of who they are as young native people You know the historical trauma that everybody everybody is aware of is something that oftentimes people think. Is You know so long ago. Kind of a get over it kind of thing and it really. It was something that lasted into the nineteen eighties the boarding school era. And all of that. And so what's happening. Is that that we have grandparents and parents who are who were potentially in boarding school doing the best. They can to try and raise young people but have been stripped of their culture their traditions their language and In sense of identity and so what is happening is that we're trying to provide resources for young people without first taking care of the initial needs the needs of our young people in our families which is to provide an opportunity for them to heal To you to reestablish or strengthen their sense of identity as young native people and to reestablish a sense of pride As a for a young person and until that is done until one has a sense of who they are a restored sense of who they are Really trying to push young people to just just graduate from high school. You'll be lying or just get a job you'll be fine. You know. Find a place to live. You'll be fine. Hasn't worked and is never going to work and so it was very in this building Is All about providing first and foremost that place at opportunities and experiences for these young people to who establish that sense of identity and He'll come to to be to be to be full humans in a really appreciate you explaining bat

His Company Makes Speakers. Now He's Speaking Out, Opposing Tariffs.
"President Trump's trade war looks like it's backfiring for many of the nation's factories manufacturing activity has slumped in recent months and analysts say the ongoing tariff battle between in the US and China is partly to blame NPR Scott horsely reports on how the trade war is affecting one manufacturing company in Minnesota. The MISKITO Speaker Company in Saint. Paul Minnesota is celebrating. Its seventieth anniversary this year Dan Degrees Das- started the company after serving in World War. Two and he was a b seventeen radio cooperator and came back to the United States and married a woman with a bad radio. The radio wasn't bad but the speaker was bad so he started his own speaker repair repair business in. Its early days. Moscow made rugged outdoor sound systems like these good evening folks at a hearty welcome to our drive in theater today. The company employs about one hundred people in a state of the art factory near the Minnesota State fairgrounds. They assemble a wide variety of speakers for musicians home theater bus. Even restaurant drive-thrus degree says there used to be a big speaker industry in the United States but over the last two decades most companies moved offshore and their suppliers moved with them. Either suppliers tires went to China or they probably went out of business. Degree kept his factory in Minnesota but he relies on some components imported from China since last. Fall all these had to pay tariffs on those components which are now twenty five percent if he built the whole speaker in China like some of its competitors he'd pay less diggers tried to pass some of the tariff airfield onto customers. He's also asked his Chinese suppliers for a tear of discount but his company has had to absorb most of the extra cost. It comes out of our bottom line and that's the money that we need to be reinvesting in new technology in new products. All of the things that makes your business competitive in a global global economy every time degree imports components from China. He gets a bill from. US Customs saying how much IOS in tariffs. He surprised how many Americans mistakenly believe that. A China is footing the bill. Maybe that's because president trump keeps insisting that China's paying the tariffs recently trump told Fox News. He's in no hurry to make a deal with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He wants to make it much more than I wanNA make it. I'm not anxious to make. It would take it in hundreds of billions of dollars in tariffs offs. We never took in ten cents. The actual tariff bill is tens of billions of dollars hundreds of billions for China to foot that bill researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York said Ed last week Chinese suppliers would have to cut their prices by about twenty percent so far the price of Chinese imports fallen. Just two percent. Tennessee congressman. Jim I'm Cooper complained that a hearing last month Americans are paying the rest. This is a tax is not on foreigners. This is attack our own people at his speaker factory. In in Minnesota Dan Degree says the higher cost of components is not the only problem. A tweet could come out this afternoon. That could dramatically change a tariff-rate straight economists say that uncertainty has many business owners holding their breath reluctant to make decisions or investments. And that's I think. One of the drags that that American businesses are feeling right now. None of us know what it's GonNa look like year in two years even two weeks this week. Degrees traveling to the Philippines aims to look for alternative components. Could buy without having to pay a tariff. We're trying to keep building speakers here in the US but there's only a couple of us left in the country entry to do it and Now if these terrorist go on a lot longer. I don't know if they'll be anybody left in this country does that ultimately degree says he might have to move his whole factory overseas. Cutting the one hundred jobs exactly the opposite of what the president said he wanted when he started this trade war.

Seniors and people with disabilities have have gotten used to have accepted that they're just going to be socially isolated and that's not good for their health. It's not good for their wellbeing. That is a huge cost to our society. If you think think of like an Uber or lift or a taxi company those are typically curbed curb service you have to go meet them at the curb whereas our drivers are trained and the expectation is that they will meet our riders within. The senior communities that they live in or after front door and provide that assistance from the threatful all the way into the vehicle and then to their final destination whether it's at Church or at the reception desk for an appointment at doctor's office we have very little capital. We don't have a fleet of cars or minivans or wheelchair accessible vehicles. We contract out for those so that's more of that Gig kind of tech economy that we're using and then we use technology also to make sure all that works in concert in the twin cities we have partnerships with five senior living communities so the market that we're building has actually there. It's one that's invisible to a lot of companies out there whether it's Uber lift because they're underserved seniors and people with disabilities want to be out they have this huge pent up demand for getting a ride for having mobility options but the supply of that service is an out there and that's what we're feeling.

How climate change risk is showing up in real estate
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing, clean energy initiatives, and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Climate change risk showing up in real estate. I'm MPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. The concept is pretty simple. Rising seas higher storm surges and unprecedented, flooding adds up to more risk for trillions of dollars in real estate. So now big real estate investment firms are calculating climate risk on property portfolios. Ed, Walter is global CEO with urban land institute. I think they're looking at the full gamut of what you see in the news on a regular basis. So one, they're looking at the impact of rising seas to they're looking at the impact of extreme heat and other markets. And lastly, you're looking at the impact of rising, it's a major storm events. So how does or will climate change risk be priced into current and future real estate, the challenge with this issue is that you can see in the long run that changes are coming to a variety of markets and something will ultimately need to be done to protect the real estate in those markets. And so as they're trying to assess. Yes that you have to both examine, what is the anticipated risk within an anticipated timeframe. And then what are the measures that are going to be required to protect against that as a real estate investor? Those dollars alternately whether they show up and investments in the building or higher tax rates within the city, the impact of those expenses, will ultimately affect the value of the building. What's the biggest message you think people should know about climate risk going forward? I think it's hard to dispute that we aren't seeing an increase in sea levels, and an increase in storm events and an increase in extreme heat. And so without getting caught up in the politics of debating climate change. I think the reality is, is cities need to be thoughtful and building owners need to be thoughtful about how to protect themselves against those three threats and so being smart and proactive about developing solutions where you can enhancing protections where you can. And developing where you should is really the best protection for any city against any real estate owner against those types of issues, and Walter global CEO with the urban land institute. Thanks so much for your perspective today graduates. Great to have a chance to talk with you. Paul hello. My name is Julie Marquel.

"Tourists every doctor I've gone to an alleged ten years. I guess can be my doctor. Well, you never know. Right. They're trained in it too in the early days. So the deal is with the feet. I would look into maybe a chiropractic physician or osteopath osteopathic physician. Here's why anytime you deal with the gate of the body do of the structure of the body, you're dealing with how everything is positioned and with flat feet. Of course, there is when when the arches drop in FICO flat, then it can cause some instability in the way that the set if you're standing up looking at someone or the way the knees set to the hips to the lower back, and they can create inserts for you or thought is what they're called custom. Have you had that done yet? Okay. This is really interesting. They've got some new technology where the there's kind of the old school orthotics, and they put him in this cast mold, but there's a new computerized way of doing it, and it will create a custom mold to your foot. Pretty amazing, actually. And the performance of what it will do is actually really interesting. So that might be something you want to consider looking into okay? Most chiropractic physicians are really into this physical therapists are getting into it as well and some osteopathic physicians Dios, so they're gives you some categories to co look into just a tad bit. And I think it could be really helpful. If you've got hot feet like you were saying, they just kinda burn get hot heated. If you will many times that can be a bead efficiency, it'd be five pantothenic acid and not that you've got a lot of stress not that anybody does.

Hope that helps triple eight two eight three seven two seven two this triple eight two eight three seventy two seventy two Glenda in Saint Paul Minnesota. Really need your help? Okay. Let's go for it. After a car wreck two years ago. I'm bound to a wheelchair bless your heart. I really put on the weight, and I need to do. Something is changing my diet enough. It is a lot. I know that when you're bound to a wheelchair. I'm really sorry that happened early. But I know there's a plan. I can tell you that. And. So it's not about what you can't do. It's about what you can do. And when you're dealing with that being put in a wheelchair. Then I mean, obviously, you've got to look at what you can do and there are activities and exercises. They make I don't know if your local gym has it, but you can do cycling with the upper body you can do weights with the upper body. And I encourage you to come up with a personal trainer. Don't do this on your own because you really need a customized program. That's for you. And a good personal trainer will do that. They were really jump on board, and they will really come up with a good solid game plan for you. So I would encourage you to do that and get with someone that can really walk within the process and teach you along the way, but remember that's for exercise and cardiovascular activity, and that's important. But also understand that your diet really is about eighty percent of it. So to stay thin and drop the weight. And all that sort of thing. And I don't know what you've gone through as far as the accident. I can only imagine emotionally. What would what would happen any probably start eating probably foods to kinda medicate in self soothe in that kind of thing. Everybody does that emotional eating. But now it's time to kind of get on the horse and say, you know, what? Okay. It is what it is. Here's where I am. Now. What can I do to maximize and optimize my health and go to the next level? So your diet is a keen and the anti inflammatory diet is a good way to go. It's in my book empowering your health thing. Yes. I'm pushing that because I wrote it, and I believe in it. And that's what we use for everyone that comes within our system. Our wellness providers. That's the standard text for what they do. It's a solid game plan for. The game plan, but nothing's going to change unless you change has to come from within so starts within you you come up with the idea and understand that you're ready to do something. Because once you start eating, well, you'll start feeling more energy. You'll have tons of vitality. You'll just feel good. And there's nothing that tastes as good as feeling good. Does I can assure you? And so yes to answer question diets, be key. But you need to come up with an exercise program something to wear you, can, you know, something you enjoy you get with a trainer they can make it fun and you need to work hard because getting the cardiovascular up as much as you can without the use of your lower body is a challenge, but it can still be done with the body. And I was in the gym this evening earlier and had to get a quick workout in. And there's a guy in a wheelchair. And he's in there every time. I'm there seems like and he is just making it happen. It's awesome. And so it really inspires me. And saw hope that you'll come up with a good game plan..
