Real Housewives (MM #3474)
"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. I've always prided myself as a person who stays up-to-date on pop culture goes back to my radio days when you needed to know what was going on around the world in your listeners live. So I always try to do at least stay up with things but it keeps saying stories about all these Real Housewives of programs on Bravo and I've known of them but it didn't realize just how many there were they were both option to him. I didn't realize they've been on for almost fifteen years now started off with a Real Housewives of Orange County back in like 2006 and sure I've heard of some the housewives in Beverly Hills in Atlanta and even New York City, but I didn't realize we had the Real Housewives of the Potomac Salt Lake City. I don't really pay attention to reality T shows because simply they just don't interest me with these reality T shows which as we all know aren't reality you miss something if you miss a detail if you kept the soda, I see all these names of all these people on The Real Housewives shows and I ask myself what's real about their lives. There's nothing real about the Real Housewives and are they really housewives in the first place? And what is reality? I know too many questions dead.
Coronavirus: US death toll passes 200,000
"We now have passed the two hundred, thousand person milestone. Desk from coronavirus. Anthony Fauci is called the stunning. Obviously, very upsetting. What's what's your react with reaction to this? I think it's troubling whether we're looking in the Review Mirror at the past six six, almost seven months now, and how did we get to two hundred thousand and I don't know a public health expert who believes that that number should not be significantly lower. you know this is a deadly virus. Of course, you're going to lose some people but you know the president's handling of it is the number one issue in the Campaign Supreme Court pick not withstanding and so I think in the rear view mirror it is sad sobering numbing I do these numbers every day and I stay up at night crunching them looking for changes in the trends and I don't pretend to be a scientific expert but it is it's depressing So two hundred, thousand Americans that's grand rapids. Michigan. That Salt Lake City Utah at Huntsville Alabama just wiped off the map just just gone. In seven months, six months really before when the first death. If you think about that, it's just it. It is mind blowing and so then you look forward and at the moment there were fifty one thousand plus new infections confirmed yesterday we're going back up We're not coming down You know there's just no way to swallow a process two, hundred, thousand dead Americans were about to hit seven million cases. Every one of those numbers is a person it's your brother, your sister, your son or your daughter, your neighbor, your friend, your colleague. The numbers can get the numbers get so big sometimes I think we kind of IMP de personalized them or impersonal is them well, we can't do that and I don't care what your politics are. We should never do that and I it is it painful looking backwards jevon mortuary. But when you looking forward we're heading we're we're right now going back up. So. That means more infections and that inevitably means more deaths the doctors will tell you they're better at treating this now. So the you know the death rate would not be as high as it was back at the peak of all this but still especially. When the all the experts tell you, it is preventable. Any is a crime.
How Do I Do the Baby Steps on Disability?
"Eddie's weathers in Salt Lake City Hi Eddie how can we help? Rachel. Talked to you today you to what's up. Well I I'm wondering how my baby step journey actually is going to look I. most of my. Is actually from disability income. and I've somehow managed to make myself to pass baby sent three gut and. Now, I'm looking at. Trying to save for. The future and possibly by home Do you make a smaller earned income so I'm able to contribute to A. Roth IRA. But. I'm just Kinda wondering that doesn't quite get me to the fifteen percents. And I'm wondering how to do that and balance three be at the same time. On this kind of income. So what is your income? Make about. Forty eight, thousand from disability. What is the nature of your disability? blind blind. Okay. All. Right and who pays. Its from a workplace insurance policy thought I was actually injured on the job my goodness I'm sorry. Are you have you lost one hundred percent of your side or just most of it? Good Chunk of it. I still have. Some people would call functional being able to see. Some objects just no find detail at all just generally you can walk around the room but but but the idea of opening up a website and looking at it's off the off the off the out of the options. What are you doing for your extra earn money? I'm actually still teaching. On teaching. The subject that was trained in. So I was teaching chemistry. Able to do that still how That's so cool. How do you have been doing it for thirty? Years doing it all from memory. YEA, pretty? Much. Okay. All right and you got the lesson plans in Braille or whatever have you learned Braille I have some adaptable software Screen thing okay. Well, good and then after thirty five years off thing or two about it. Yeah. Yeah. That's promising. That's promising. Okay. Cool. Well, the reason I ask all these questions is on your right you can you you know you're doing good and how long ago was the accident? Seven years ago. Okay. How old are you? forty, seven you're over your and overcoming man you've been getting it I'm proud of you and your your impression. Thank you. So I, mean because that's a life altering to say the least and some people just get paralyzed and you just kept rolling man good for you. All right. So how much do you make teaching Eddie? Kind of. It's been as little as about. Nine thousand. And it's been as much as about thirteen. It's all depend on. You know how much I get person master? Okay. Yeah while say because between that and your disabilities or are you are you married kids family situation? Not just me. Okay. Well, I was GONNA say that's a relatively. Average income. That's the positive part is how to do the steps in disability is that people are doing it with this amount of income they're just working their way through it. So if you wanted to pause baby step forward to do baby step three B and go ahead and save up that down payment, you could for a short period of time just kind of accelerate that and actually get that quick win faster than if you were putting your money into that Roth Ira so you could do that as an option. Yeah. I agree I think you're getting there. Let me tell you what I'm hearing I'm hearing you got. Big Future ahead of you. And you've been through hell and so it might be harder for you to grasp that future but. I think I think you could do it I think you could I think you could do tutoring. Thank you. Could you might double your income If you push around and think about this a little bit you don't have to but you're just a survivor man I mean you've gotten after it. I'm so proud of you. So I would be continuing to think about ways you could do the teaching because you know your stuff like you said and anything you can do to get your income up, of course, accelerates all of these issues.

"salt lake" Discussed on ExtraTime
"Europe and as an American. But we didn't really see and it was after college you went to Brown University and so just to see the way that the pathway for young American players to break into Europe at an earlier age, and then to make a a big leap, even as we've seen. Several of these guys do is awesome to see and great for the national team. The agree with you Kaylin, you look at players one, you always have to take move like because as doyle said by Paulo bigger I think there are eight teams in the world doyle says six. That's fine though either way there are there's a class of teams in on the. issue. I would put DSP in there at this point and I think Chelsea man. City has a claim as well what's. There are eight teams in the world that everyone roots for an everyone watches and you've as one of them, and it's new to have an American on the always have taken opportunity when you get it, I agree with Kaelin in that I think is skillset away he wants to play. We'll actually better because I think he can compete at that level that they need, but he was required to. Do so much shock, and there was nothing around him to help him. But now his job individually is going to be a lot simpler. He just has to do it at a higher level. It's going to be fascinating to see what happens but it's exciting to see a player like this get that opportunity, and now we all get to watch you games at something to watch one was. The biggest shock. This Schulkin actually had a very good young player that they. Instead of letting him go for free or not. Missed out on like a quarter, billion dollars in trance or fees over the past ten years. So good job shock all always for shock a little bit because they're one of the teams that have historically taken a chance on US talent. So hopefully, they can use this to their finances kinda straight. Hopefully, they avoid relegation, which is a very real chance for the theater and hopefully We'll see more guys taking that pathway to the Rhineland and then you know up to the highest levels of professional soccer aware. But let it turn I mean we're talking Southampton which would have been awesome but it's just all sudden. You're like Oh of course you. Plead, Southampton and Real Madrid off of you to get the deal he wanted the. Self belief it's clear that he's like I'm going to do the business and I, think he has reason to believe it. I mean, if you look strategies little little kind of Peer Core Group in Europe, you mentioned those names it'll be tyler or Pulisic or who who those boys for a long time as they came up in Germany or now g arena by Weston mckennie, you guys might not believe in me to the generals. Cacophony of people that are saying, maybe this is too much for me but there is nothing about his demeanor, his clay anything he's shown over his young career that leads you to believe that he has anything. But one hundred percent belief that this is going to be his spot and when will be interested go ahead to call you go like. People. Should you go? Maybe you're not gonna get an playing time. What are you talking about? Like if you get the ultimate in your career path? Who who sits back and says Maybe. I'm not good enough like I hope nobody out there is doing that on yourself. Anybody listening who's thinking about that like bet on yourself because even if it goes bad southampton still going to be there you're still you've Clare. I, wonder how this will affect the. Transfer market that with MLS players because it definitely does feel like north, American players right now are trending. And there I mean, when you see the success of the big clubs that these guys are going to and having success, I'll just be interested to see if that trickles down in if if the price tag or the interest or the or the awareness of some of these young players who are rumored to be going abroad actually matriculate or people are looking at these special players has outliers are outside of that. By the way, we teenagers score goals in mls this weekend we are GonNa, talk all about that. Maybe some of those guys, let's say, Johnny Capuccio, maybe Syria is a little bit more of a destination. Now, who knows we shall see by the way Timothy Way back in the Back in the swing and things real he got on the field, he was a substitute and Jonathan Daviss started that match. So if you're talking about North American talent, there's two more to think about as well. Okay. Let's get to the news today a major league soccer Brian Dunn Says GonNa help walk us through all this. You know he knows just about everything going on on the ground at. Real. Salt Lake just a quick rundown here of course, Wednesday night the boycotts also like Elliott among the teams that did not play on that Night Hansen the owner of Rossall they came out the next day on radio and had some comments about that. There was a lot of brushback push back on those comments which I will just come out and say that I disagreed with and I think that's A. Pretty Universal stance for most people within this League Josie. Altidore had something to say bourgeois and allows you Bob Bradley a a lot of public figures coming out and saying, no, this is not where we personally stand. We think this is wrong. Later in the afternoon, the athletic you probably saw the headlines Andy Williams going on record was some really disturbing allegations about Hanson's behavior on and on and on. It goes and then as of Sunday the Hanson announcing he would take a leave of absence for his own statement and major league soccer's on he will sell his teams, Tyrrell, Salt Lake, rail monarchs and US Championship and Utah Royals in Nwea sell a lot of people reportedly interested Josie author tweet Nevada. Jesuit Watch. Nevada they're supposed in Salt Lake City already saying, Hey, we wanted on this as well. So big td on the future of these clubs. But let's get to done. It's an at and T. Call to the field Donnie what's up man? Not much. Not much out here. I would just maybe describe it as the craziest seventy, two hours that I've ever experienced since my start in July of Nineteen, ninety seven. So yeah, not not a lot coming out of of Utah Lately, right? Yeah. You know I laugh because I don't know what else to do at this point is just overwhelming passed I. Don't know you say seventy two hours, but it's been more than that. It's been months at this point and it just keeps piling on. We kind of told the quick story here as far as what's happened, what's going to happen now with Hanson. Saying. He will sell the club being on a leave of absence. Let's just have you walk us through your perspective. And I'm okay with with repeats here of what has happened with this club and with ownership. So I would start with Wednesday night heading to the stadium and knowing that the game in Orlando he kicked off and by the time I had left my house and got into the stadium. There was mark. My phone was blown up much like everybody's and the moment that I walked in the stadium and I saw the Inter Miami Atlanta had not kicked off I recognized okay. We've we've got a serious threat to this real. Salt. Lake Elliot see game, and that's when I saw the coaching Stop Rally of C- come in and Zakia del who's The goalkeeper coaches my former goalkeeper coach Fullerton and I was exactly are. We honor not are we off he's again and so then I saw John Thornton kind of walking the field and his phone was just pressed to his ear, and then that's when I saw native Noel Zach mcmath come out. They had a conversation with mark. Anthony K. and Jordan. Harvey with mcmath and Harvey the player Union wraps for each individual team and I could just tell by the body language it.
Tyler Glenn: I Can Feel You Feel Forgetting Me
"You know as artists become more famous. Lies, and their experiences often become less relatable and I think we see that show up in their work and I. Bring that up because I think that things are singing about this new album are shockingly relatable and relevant to the people listening I have some specific examples but that's something that you think about or are concerned about. Take probably I always want to feel like I'm relating to the audience listening to it and to me I suppose I'm famous to some people and I I suppose my band is popular but I I still live like a very I dunno I some of it must have to only coming out a few years ago feeling like myself. So I feel like I'm still very much like I don't know. Does that make sense like just a person with a phone trying to navigate romance with APPs and like I I still just as much of that even though I have access to other things and maybe a platform I mean you bring up romance I think one of the things that like I struck me was about being ghosted and ghosting and I was like, Oh yeah I guess they must people do have. To deal with that as well. Yeah, and I also have seen the flip I've used ghosting to sort of get out of a thing. It's this weird thing that I'm exploring in my own life is the modern phenomenon and we were given all this power. Maybe I'm too happy about it but I think we're still in the middle of even understanding what that is and the power of that and how it. Affects our people and things like that. I feel like I've had one public relationship right after it came out I really wanted to work and I realized like still had so much inner stuff to work out an exit I sit here with you as a thirty six year old man and I'm like I don't know if I've ever really been in A. In a relationship that actually is healthy life is also public and also like rewarding the both of us it's interesting thing I'm still navigating as a as a guy. You know I think for me. It's been the last few years of just like why what is codependency like? Why am I feeling this way? Why might seeking someone so hard to fulfill me and it's like it's probably stuff that sounds very juvenile but from me I, there's aspects of things that I do feel you know I'm still having to experience myself. I mean I think you named check codependency on at least two different solid in. That's not a word of ever heard in pop music before lake. Yeah it's a running theme. It's repetitive lyric on purpose I. Think I not only with the person that I'm directly talking about his record but I think my own codependency with my devices, my own codependency with alcohol and drugs as as a Mormon kid growing up that was Jones in my head that that's not what you're supposed to do but you're also not supposed to be gay. And I knew I was gay. So now I'm I'm without labels. As an openly gay man also not subscribing to that fifth expression anymore. I feel like I'm not certain basic things. Does that make sense or are you saying because mormonism has so many? knows. You know you can't drink alcohol drink coffee. You can't smoke that. You're now late twenties early thirties like figuring your own relationship to alcohol and like everything I. Think. So I think it's even less about the no it's also the coupled with the idea that like. And I know mormonism is an exclusive religion that exclusively feels this way. But like it kind of combines this this greater existential crisis with drinking coffee for example, like the fact that you couple that with with sinning. So it's this weird. been this navigation of way I woke up hung over me and I'm an alcoholic I don't know I'm just figuring out maybe stuff you do in early twenties and get through it doesn't make sense. It makes sense and I have to wonder if that is something that everybody our age is feeling and thinking about it just looks more like a personnel cylinder light your life probably, and that's been the beauty of being out I've been out for six years, but I've only really been in my body as a gay man. Without the trappings of certain things for the last three or four years, it does make me feel less alone and made me feel like this is just an isolated experience when I when I see like people that have no relation to. The things that I grew up. Bonn are still like fumbling with and sort of figuring out I live in Salt Lake City now, and it's a very still like reminding of the Mormon Church but I, don't think about it all the time until I have to share myself from my story and. You know for better for worse. That's a big component of my. My Life is how that's affected me and me getting out of it and how that's affected me
Advocates For Deaf And Blind Laud Netflix's New Playback Features
"Netflix recently announced it's rolling out a new feature that allows some viewers to stream their favorite shows or films, slower, half speed, say or faster. The feature, which is currently on Ly, available to Android users, adjust voice pitch to make the faster slowed down speed. Sound natural. The idea to criticism from directors like Judd Apatow, who said last fall that platform should leave content as it wass quote intended to be seen. Advocates for the deaf and blind are lauding the new feature, saying It's a win for people who rely on playback options so they can also enjoy the cinematic experience. One of those advocates as ever it bacon. He's a board member of with the National Federation of the Blind, and he joins us from Salt Lake City, Utah. Hello. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So for those who who dont know for someone who is blind, How do you watch films or TV shows? So we watch films just like anybody else on Ly. We have what's called audio description. Our audio description narration that's going on while the programming is being viewed. And so basically when there is no dialogue between the actors, a narrator comes on and describes what's happening in the scene and what's happening in the the show. So we have an understanding so like they might describe The set What's happening around us? They might give us some gender information or race information about characters, just overall things that help us. Understand and comprehend what the creators were trying Tio portray to the general public. And so how does this new playback feature assist with the viewing experience? Well, blind individuals. Many of us use a screen reading technology on our computers and our phones. And we have learned and adapted over time to speed that up on a regular basis. We've also been listening to audio books for years as a member of the National Federation of the Blind. I've been listening to audio books from the library for the blind for many years, and we've always been able to speed up that process because we're listening all the time and in our our ears that kind of trained over time to listen at a quicker speed and so allowing us to do the same thing on on on a show. Like a documentary or some type of other content. It really helps the whole lot. When when you're trying Tio consume such great content in mass quantity. And why is it so important? You mentioned that you've been doing this in other platforms. Why's it so important on a streaming platform like Netflix? Well, I think it's very important because I'm going to watched a lot of content just like anybody else. And honestly, I've been listening to so many things all of my life that when I listen at regular speed, sometimes it can sound a little slower than it that it should. And And so I might. My years kind of wanted a little bit more faster as a blind individual. Because that's what I've been used to listening to my computer, listening to my phone listening to audio books, so it's only a natural process that I would want the speed to be a bit faster on the streaming content that I'm viewing on Netflix or other platforms. You know, as I mentioned earlier, there are directors actors who have pushed back saying This playback option distorts their art and the way it was intended to be consumed. How would you respond to them? Well, I would say to to someone like Director Judd Apatow, who is a person who I love the the programs that he's put together, and I've watched several of his films, There is so much information that they have put out in their content. That audio description allows me as a blind individual to comprehend and observe on DH two Having that speed feature. It just allows me to do better understand and better comprehend what they were trying to portray in their creation. I love a lot of Judd Apatow's work and I think if he understood me is a blind individual and how I consume content, he would be applaud this new feature by Netflix
The search for ancient civilizations on Earth ... from space
"Okay. So first off Sarah Park is kind of a big deal. She's helped uncover prehistoric commented fossils in eroded canyon lake beds, an ancient amphitheater under an airport in Rome and Egypt, which is her specialty. She's uncovered thousands of settlements including more than a dozen pyramids. Are you tired the perpetually, but it's okay. She's written about those discoveries by the way in a recent book called archaeology from. From Space and yes, Sarah does go to sites and do some real digging in the dirt archaeological excavation. But her superpower is analyzing satellite imagery and data to know where to dig in the first place. Most of the imagery I use is called optical satellite imagery. So so it stayed essentially taken from light that's reflected off the surface and looking for changes in patterns we're looking for. How things relate to one another, and hopefully, that will indicate where there could potentially be archaeological sites or features with insights, and then we get to go out on the ground and do serve mapping and excavate them. When you say you use satellite images, what are we talking about a week? Where do those images come from and kind of how do you manipulate them? So it's a, it's a range of different satellite images. So if we're interested in looking really really large landscapes, we use data from NASA but if we're looking. Looking. At very high resolution satellite images, we use the essentially the imagery that you see on Google Earth, which is from a company called Knox our technologies that challenge with that data is that we can't see through trees. I'm dealing with rainforests, of Central, America or Southeast Asia or forest say in New England. Then we use Technology Coal Ladar which tends for light detection and ranging, and that's Eliezer mapping system that you put on an airplane or a drone or a UNLV essentially allowing you to remove trees and see what's there. In your book, you also explain how archaeologists now have the ability to detect temperature differences below the ground. Why? Yes. How first of all cool second of all, how does that work and why is that important? So one particular part of the light spectrum that is really really useful for for the work that we do is the thermal infrared. So if you have anything that's buried and is a chamber or avoid like a room, a tomb a very passageway, you know if it's kind of. Of like when you go into a basement or a wine cellar, you know the temperature drops a couple of degrees. So by using thermal infrared, you can see these very subtle differences in temperature, and if say an area shows up with a lower temperature, that's the shape of a rectangle. Okay. There's something that's there that we may need to check out right in Salt Lake. You're like cake in archaeologists out of business, right? So it's like you still end up going in there. It just kind of. Of helps like going in there and digging stuff up and looking at stuff with different techniques. It's basically just giving you a good idea of like there might be something here, right ex-. Exactly I mean the coolest part of my job I think is the actual physical excavation and that so time consuming and so what the satellites allow us to do is not just fine sites, but also track over time potential threats to them. So whether it's rising water whether it's urbanization or development, maybe there are. are other issues that could be affecting. The sites would allows it's a tool that allows geologists to help, monitor and protect sites right, and and so you even kind of tried to estimate like obviously estimating how many more archaeological sites might be out there, and it's in like the millions right I. I think I estimated and I'm probably I probably not going to give the right number guy the book even though it was the summer, it was Sarah, fifty, fifty, fifty, fifty, sixty, seventy. Eighty ninety. So. Yeah. So so basically I think something like forty, million, fifty, million sites left to find. But like I could be wrong, it could be one, hundred, million, it could be ten, million North Y'all just yet has written me an angry email saying how dare you? Thank, like I think I was pretty on the mark. So. There's another thing that I kind of wanted to talk to you because I don't talk to that many archaeologists, you know what I mean, but now at my own show and they can't stop me, Sarah. So. Can we talk a little bit about how colonialism and archaeology have intersected in the past and and maybe how it still does now, and what we can do about that? I? Guess that's a big question for you. The big question and it's something I and my colleagues think about. A. Lot. So first of all I, have to acknowledge that that archaeology especially, egyptology. It both those fields as well as anthropology, they have deeply racist colonialist routes. All of them, you know Westerners parachute in. Do their projects were essentially archaeological tourists that were probably rank. rankle a lot of my colleagues I. don't care someone needs to speak out about this and they leave which is, which is appalling. You know I pay guards around at the site where I work at list. I have very close relationships with the village My. My education course staff. I speak to them every single week and and at the end of the day, it's about those relationships. So I think we all have to do a lot of hard stares in the mirror at ourselves and ask what are we taking and what are we leaving? Are we training? Are we providing equipment and materials? What else should we be doing to create some more parody and the in the work that we're doing and I'm not the only one doing this by there's so many colleagues both in Egypt and elsewhere are being which were intentional. But I think we have to ask a lot of hard questions. You talk in the book about the importance of discoveries in how a few small discoveries can impact a field more than like a headline worthy discovery, which I. Really like because I think as a person, who's you know been a part of the scientific process. It's frustrating when you know only the big kind of discoveries. Get credit for changing fields. When in reality, it is those little findings you know what I mean. So I'll get, I'll give you an example a colleague and friend of mine few row him a fee. Fi is currently leading excavations in an area near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and he and his team just uncovered a new workmen's village. So it's a place where men would have stayed and lived as they were constructing tombs in the Valley of the Kings. and kind of compared to other discoveries, not just in Egypt, but but elsewhere, it really didn't get much play but I think it's one of the most extraordinary discoveries in. Egypt. In the last twenty years, we only know of one other workmen's village in West Bank in Luxor. It's an unbelievable fine because it's going to tell us about the daily life of the people who lived and worked. You know three, thousand, three, hundred, three, thousand, five, hundred years ago, right up and to me, it's those discoveries that are most interesting. All Right Sarah. Park. We appreciate you. This is a lot of fun likewise. Thank you so much. Go go go to bed I I. Learned. They're GONNA pay you. Thanks to Sarah. Park. You can read about her work and her book, which is called archaeology from space, how the
Hurting for Money
"Hi, guys well from Beautiful Salt Lake City Utah. It's thank God I'm atheist the podcast I'd Frank Feldman and I'm Dan Beecher and coming up on the show today. Dan. Giving out money. Just. Thrown around. Making it rain. I WISH I mean they're doing that for some. I don't know my my my. GIG economy unemployment insurance is is winding down and I don't think I'm going to get any more. So Oh, I'm not excited. About that. But no, I know the the yet the government has found a very worthy repository. For a bunch of our money, our tax money, and let me tell you dear listener. You Ain't GonNa like it. Yeah. Yeah. Not Not a good look. We'll be getting to that. But in the meantime, Dan? Yeah. There's some new psychological research Dan. Okay, that seeks to. Link, atheism. To something and I wanna I wanna I I'm curious. To hear your response. because. Is. It is it. Is it linking. Atheism STD's because that just because we're all sluts. No. In fact to. Emotional suppression. Oh Oh. Oh. Yeah. I duNNo. I feel about that. This is what I'm saying. They did. They did this research on a group of one thousand, fifty, nine undergraduate psychology students. Surveyed them right and they about their religious beliefs and had them complete an assessment of their emotion regulation tendencies, right? Okay. and so about half the participants. Were Christian thirty percent agnostic or non religious fifteen percent identified as atheist and. The remainder was A mix of Muslims Hindus Buddhists Jewish. And then apparently a smattering of others. But Yeah. So what they found is that the self identified atheists. were. More likely to report engaging in emotional suppression meaning. They were more likely to agree with statements like when I am feeling positive emotions I am careful not to express them. K which which is interesting They also took eight atheists an eight religiously affiliated undergraduates They were recorded. As they described a recent experience that made them feel frustrated or annoyed. And a recent experience that made them feel happy or joyful and. A hundred undergraduates watch those videos, right? Okay and they they watched it with audio turned off. And they they re they raided the speakers emotional expressive, nece, their trustworthiness, and they're like ability. Okay and they just based on on seeing them not here. Just watching them talk and tell the story that was an emotional story. Right. Interesting And they had absolutely no idea about which speaker was atheist or Catholic or whatever. And they found that the the atheist were seen as less emotionally expressive on average when compared to the religiously affiliated individuals. Interest. And so they say, let's see this is the researcher. Speaking says compared to non, atheist. which includes acknowledged sticks and the nonreligious as well as believers atheists are not more likely to manage their emotions by thinking differently about situation that was one of the I'm sorry there was this other thing where they. Tried to assess. After, you've had an emotional experience like. Do you try to reassess the emotional the emotions that you felt and the how strong those emotions were right. And so you're saying that the atheists are not more likely to manage their emotions by thinking differently about situations atheists are more likely to resist expressing their emotions however and people. Noticed this even if they don't know someone is an atheist.
Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall Is Working on Five Areas of Police Reform
"More about policing here in Salt Lake. And thanks for coming back again today. Uh, so it's all it's all been, you know, the policing black lives matter, de phoned the police. You all been up in the air, and I saw a story that you were. You had been talking to Ah Salt Lake police and working with them and talking to them about some things that might be done. To improve policing in our city. What's going on with that? There's a lot going on with that. Right now. We have to put together the commission on racial Equity in policing, which is community members, background experiences across the spectrum. It all wanting to see a reform in Salt Lake City Police Department and generally profit nation. But we've tasked them with looking at Salt Lake City Police Department budget culture and policies and then bringing recommendations over the next months and even up to a year. Back to the City Council on myself to make improvements in Salt Lake City government when it comes to policing, But right now and simultaneously we've been working on some police policy reforms. That includes use of force. We're looking at Camden, New Jersey, on the FBI and mother really progressive policies nationwide around use of force. No knock warrants. Another one. We are numbers are already quite low compared to other departments. And they have decreased in the last few years. But we still want to look at the policy to see how we can improve it to further tighten down on instances where no knock warrants or used our body camera policy is pretty extensive. But we want to improve transparency around. How and rather why officers disabled and increase potentially the consequences for officers who disable their body camera. There's consent to search On. We want to increase our transparency and make that more clear. There's some forms that we give. People were supposed to give people. When a police officer is going to search, we need to make sure those are readable. But they're translated if necessary, that their clear to the public There's several others, but I'll posit there and see what your doctor I wanted to ask about is their eyes there anyway, to deal with the fact that the police are often called upon to do things that they really Shouldn't be doing to deal with mental health issues, for instance. Yes, absolutely in the police has been Over the last many decades really over my lifetime, at least with the de funding of mental health on the lack of support and access from many people. Even most people across the country to adequate mental health support services so police officers become Therapist they become marriage counselors fails to become Park rangers and other forms of not what we would normally called policing in the past. And I think our officers were also appreciate not being being called on to do the kind of work that isn't necessarily policing work, so We're looking at how we might be able to use our eight social workers that Aaron, the solid city Police Department, which is something unique to our police department, compared to others Round ST How can they go out with that? Because they go into corresponded model with an officer. How can they go out in a way that it doesn't trigger individuals who are in mental health crisis? Helping. What's the appearance of

On the show today day on. Trump about trump and we're. GonNa talk about White Evangelical. An article that we both read About, maybe why? Why Evangelical did vote for trump? And it's not for the reasons that liberals like to think so I think it's actually It's an interesting take and one worth talking about if even just if it's. Just sort of as a as a discussion about what America is Nyu. We're that way and. Don't expect it to sound good. Don't don't expect us to come out. Rosie on this one. Oh, Americans America. Yeah America has a concept. People. Artistic. Ship has sailed trae yeah, I think I think we all know Diane got problems. We're not in shining city on the hill or whatever and. smolder smoldering. Shit pile and the devil. We're the tire fire that stinking up the place. Off. Had to be American. Oh, it's fine. It's fine. The other ones who are ruining America right now we're. We're the good ones. It's nice to assure oneself. All right Dan yeah. What are you? Win Covid nineteen I hit. Twelve years ago twelve. Going on thirteen. Did you have any thought about what it might mean for relative Religiosity in America like. Did you think that maybe people might kind of the fence sitters might. Find Faith. Again was thought that that maybe you had I had this thought. I'm just one to two. I know I didn't think that I have given up predicting in the universe because. I'd starting with the with the twenty sixteen elections I have now realised. I have no handle on what human beings do yeah, and it'll just go left every time I think it's GonNa go right well I think a lot of people probably did think like I did where your? Sort of this impulse right that people who who weren't really. They just didn't go to church right, but they still maybe Kinda. SORTA believed in God and so maybe those people would would return right, and we may be an up an uptick. In America in sort of religious observance and whatnot. Well it turns out. that it is the exact opposite. Wrong or at least according? To the state of the Bible survey. That was just released this last week by the American. Bible Society. It was the tenth such survey that they've done. They started in two thousand eleven right. Okay, and they look to see. How many America what percentage of American adults are consider themselves to be? Sort of scripture engaged right? Metric but the they look at how frequently people read. The Bible. And Sort of how? Nobody's ever read the Bible. And what what they consider its impact on their relationships and choices are right sure in the six months span. Between January and the end of June. Yeah. The number of scripturally engaged Americans dropped from twenty eight percent to twenty two point seven percent. Wow, that's thirteen million people who previously. Went to scripture? To seek solace or or a? For better living or whatever. Who stopped doing that just basically were like Oh. This thing doesn't do anything. I mean it's hard to read into exactly what it is i. mean the article kind of speculates Lake. Is this just because they don't have time? Because these are people who got kids at home and a job that? You know telecommuting on. You know like like it. Just people being really busy, or is it potentially? What's? More likely in my mind, which is what you're saying at least to a certain extent, right and no matter what these are people who had a habit. These are thirteen million people who had the habit of going to scripture. Have broken that habit and her going, maybe because they've lived this long, not. You know without the impulse? Maybe
Mormons Shirk Leaders Request to Wear Masks
"Going to start with. A story about the. Church of Jesus, Christ of Latter Day saints the Mormons the Mormons. From which we done sprung headquartered right here in Salt Lake City. Yeah, they have the church. Leadership has recently. They sent out a letter to all the numbers. In Utah. This wasn't like directly from like the president of the church. The Pros at himself yeah wasn't even from like the quarter of the twelve, and this was from the area presidency. So these are the assistant regional manager was saying. No literally the regional manager Oh. Yeah, it's the regional manager. That's the regional manager. So the management of the Church's Grassley Saints sent this letter out asking. Members to of the church to wear masks in public yeah, and to be good citizens. And to help the health and Welfare of all. Now before before you go any further. I want to point out that Mormons in general. Are. Obedience driven humans they are. It's an authoritarian. Religion it is one. It is a top down. Do not question the authority religion right, but in a lot of ways sometimes I think the church knows when to be quiet and knows when not to be right like well. They say things that they know are going to go over well, right? this If you know anything about Utah and our general response to Covid nineteen. It. Hasn't been going. In fact in a lot of ways. It's been problematic. The we've got that strain of like right-wing nutjob here in the that. Doesn't. Want to be told what do right. Yeah, in fact and this choice I actually saw something on a related story that had a picture of a mask that somebody had written. My Body my choice. Yeah. So clever. None the less so. And of course the UTAHNS. Stripe tend to be Mormon right. And So. This hasn't necessarily gone over well We, basically we haven't seen more people wearing masks because of this church urging people wear masks what has caused people to wear masks or national chains like Kroger and Wal Mart etc target, also saying that you have to wear a mask in their store. Okay, well a finally finally right and Salt Lake County soon as salt lake. County was allowed by the state to to put in a face mask like rule like law. Right eight a mandate. Order I guess actually probably There was almost like immediate compliance. It was amazing. It was overnight like it wasn't one hundred percent. Obviously. Break the places that I go. It was a noticeable and dramatic difference. Right and that's that's what these things do. You or you place an order? Put an order in place in people comply will nonetheless. Then work with the LDS church. They really are out of touch with their their membership on this. This. This multiple times we saw this when the church provided you know. When they brought a bunch of missionaries, home provided instructions for people. The how to you know what they were to do? When they picked their missionary up, which were summarily ignored, yeah. I? Honestly, it almost is like the church feels like at this point to be the Crotchety old man on the block, right or like grandparents right like maybe not the credit made actually just your grandparents. Who just like? Oh, come on, you're just. You. Don't know what you're talking about right? That's almost like their reaction. The membership reaction at this point of. They. they don't know what they're talking about. And if GRANDPA like really gets mad and insists everybody'll roll their eyes and comply, but like right, which is going to church. They have to wear masks when they go to church, right. It's so funny they won't do it. They will not do it with just out in public on their own. It's amazing and you know when when that news hit I have, course went to very mormon sources like the Desert News, which is the church owned newspaper. And I went I jumped right to the comments section because I wanted to see what was happening. Are they accepting this or are they rejecting it because it's literally like the the organization that they believe the most telling them to do something that they have? Four squares set their mind against and. It was shocking to see how many Mormons because Mormons don't disobey the brethren. They don't yeah. So many Mormons going. We'll do from the Prophet so I. Don't have to listen to it. Yeah, looking for any excuse, right? It was amazing to me.

Hey, some people don't like losing. Okay all right well. I guess clearly clearly not. Wow! I Start Review Jt. I told rocks in my mountain bike stuff. We'll take a few days to kick in. And? Looks like I was right. Yeah I'm just GONNA. Just move right along on that because I can't handle when you grab onto the ridiculous things that never like Oh, it's. It's amazing what he did. The track favored him. I think this slick turns the heart pack a throttle control kind of stuff stuff that Kenny straight at, but I still can't believe. He just went off and ran off and hot ran away from this thing I think it was just fourteen days thing. He's been for fourteen days. Like a light switch he's on. I'm Gonna I'm just going to go with that. What unpredictable win like seriously. Wow! Yeah. I. Don't I don't know if you've ever seen bounceback like that especially since we had three races in a row where it was entirely predictable by. The Fayed was coming almost to the minute at the exact same time, and not even halfway, it was like eight or nine minutes, and then they go halfway was just crazy, but he did explain in the press conference that just finished We were in there listening. You know the shingles thing. I don't know anything about shingles except it's horrible, right? It's all you so bad due to forever to get over, and then he explained that he had a small spot that he saw. They got dock partner quickly got medicine for it. He thinks got it somewhat. Tamp down because they got on early so I was thinking like dude. He's going to be struggling with this for months here. He thinks he's a bit of a handle on it. So maybe we were a little off with how bad we thought this is going to be. Okay shingles or not. Yeah, that's not why he was doing what he was doing. Early, is it? That's not I didn't think his results were because Shingles Dang. That's gotTa Suck. I can't help oh! I thought the last race was what he was saying was. He started seeing at the last race, but the previous two races there was no mention of that. Oh so that was the asthma the breathing. WHATEVER THE HELL! Whatever the hell else? Yeah, she opinion anyways. That's what I took away from it as well right so. This is just remarkable. This this ride I mean he just. You know he just maintained that. Li I think he. Looked like he could push it a little more remarkably consistent. Think of another ride that. Where some guy was counted out in came in. I don't know I can't. Nothing comes to mind right now either one for you. Know Not that big of a turnaround like it. Doesn't you know there was weird? Remember Tomac could not race. Around two two years ago and then one. A week later true. If, everyone he wins the title I'm going to try to get to the bottom of what that day at a Houston was like he probably won't talk about it, but that was a pretty big turn around I think we don't know how I mean it was bad enough from not to race. It's been on. We've seen some bounceback rides from Chad read over the years. His head kicked in by STU. Are CNN comeback. Beat them the next weekend, but I I. Know What you're saying as far as health problems But I know the one the one caveat there is. It has not been a speed thing for Roxanne. If you watched him ride especially at the beginning of the main events. He is so unbelievably fast. It just wasn't there for very long, even when he even when he when he was. Yeah, it shouldn't surprise us that his his stamina just completely doesn't get out. He has that I was surprised to win. Win But. We've seen flashes right. You could see the writing there. You could see the ability. It was just like you're almost. He was on a countdown clock to win. It was going to strike back and thankfully for Roxanne in hot HRC did not strike at all. It's just a vampire dude. You just think he's done. He's not he rises. You just comes out of the coffin. That's it just I'll be. I'll be. I'll be Kenny. Rocks good track forum, though jt like I said. Heart Paks Lick throttle control those turns. It certainly favored his technique. He's GonNa. Whoops, which which are pretty difficult, and then he's just so precise with a throttle. He was getting in and out of all those flat corners, which many writers may comment about the flat corners, and how strange they were for the trend. But. You could just see how. As I said precise in how great his financiers riding is getting it out of those terms. Turn after he passed coupe. After the whoops and then. He hit that Rut unbelievable on one hundred miles an hour. Imperfect him, it was it was amazing. It was amazing. Great there rocks that particular laugh was. It was like. I gotta go. I don't know I. Don't know what to say, but the guy I mean. Yeah, he just continues to impress and when you think he's done and out like. It, the temperature was good here. It wasn't wasn't a heater. Track so suited him but I. Don't know I have a question. Right at Great Reid deserve all the credit in the world unbelievable performance. I in my opinion where with the best guy today, Are you. Really happy with this, or are you even more frustrated because of what's gone on for the last two weeks and you basically ridden yourself out of any championship chance. Kenny you're happy of your, Honda..

Risk of new lockdowns rises with fear of second COVID-19 wave
"You mentioned these states that are seeing these big surges right now Arizona Arkansas the Carolinas Florida. Texas Tennessee Utah, these are states. They're seeing big first surges. It's not a second surge or so called second wave. How exactly do we determine when it's a second wave for the country though? What's tricky about this? Is that like every place? Every city every state is going through its own corona virus break like sure they're interconnected and people travel from one place to another, but like the outbreak in New York City is on a completely different time line a completely different trajectory than the outbreak. Phoenix or Salt Lake City or Little Rock, and so as much as I know, people have come to think about things in terms of waves. We have a bunch of discreet different waves, ebbing and flowing all the time, and we can see that right now you know these days. The cases and deaths in New York City have been on a substantial decline for quite a while. Now you know they've seen the worst of the coronavirus, whereas somewhere like Arizona. That wasn't hit hard. The first time is now to your point seeing for the first time, a big surge in cases as the lockdown starts to get lifted. The virus hasn't gone away. Cova nineteen is. is going to spread. People are going to get sick and some people are going to die. It becomes a decision for politics and for society to figure out how much new covid nineteen spread is worth the economic reopening. What will be concerning is if we see a place like New York or Seattle or some of these places that have already endured a first wave if they start to see a big surge as they start their reopening process. That's when we're going to know that a second wave is really underway.

Also Dean Wilson flying in practice. The he came from way back and he was an eight handicap star, so I got him at twenty sixty maxed out. My next I was brought. tickle who? Didn't look anywhere near what he showed of, and had to go the Q., and he got double points right at the end of the race I believe. Thank you, Brock tickle, but not ride that. You know he's GonNa. Get better. Yeah, he's going to be better and it's GonNa. Pay Off maybe this week. For the next race, so I could see myself going tickle for Salt Lake, city five because I think he'll just slowly getting better and my last pick was Fred and Orrin who? Yeah I was a thirteen, he. Knew he was a good starter, which would help in these conditions again? Conditions didn't get as bad as I thought, and he has some speed any Bush the whoops, one time and look great, and then eat never blitz them again and then Ryan breeze just threw it away and gave Freddie the spot and Freddie. Just puked all over himself just like babies. All over himself. That was that was after the heat when he was all by it. And they just throw it away crashing into whoops. Yeah all by himself. Up breese was racing with Freddie like into a turn or something. After? He was in leaving last lap. All by himself crash Freddie, but Freddie still shot. Freddie, had to do was just double through the whoops, when breese crash and he would have passed them, but he almost endo's feed off-the-peg, trying to double through the whoops because I think he saw breeze just lost. Okay, he he's absolutely lost it. He's lost all skillset all ability to think through a race. I was thoroughly disgusted with what I saw. So Fred no one was my guy..

This isn't because they want to be jerks or they're out to get you. This is so the state doesn't come down on them and shut the whole thing down. So if you break the rules, yeah, no mercy for you.

A.O. Scott on the Work of Wallace Stegner
"Were some of those big questions that stagner wrestled with in his writing the segments such a fascinating writer for one thing, and I don't really get into into the peace, but he really spans generate. I don't think there are that. Many writers who cover quite the same amount of time as he does, so he he's born in nineteen o nine and grew up in various places around the western United States to Seattle Salt. Lake City not just the United States schedule on, but he started writing in the thirties is first. Four novels were published in the thirties and kept writing and kept going up until his death in. In nineteen ninety-three, the big novels that people tend to read the to that that are probably the most red angle of repose and crossing to safety are from the seventies and eighties. And he already had you know four or five decade career behind him. At that point, you know it's almost a cliche to think of him as a Western writer because he taught at Stanford for many years, he founded the creative writing program. At Stanford, the creative writing fellowships still bear his name there. A lot of his nonfiction is about the West about ecology about the settlement of the West. He wrote a really fascinating book in the forties called Mormon country about Utah Settlement Utah. Conflicts between Mormon and Non Mormon? Population and native Americans there, so the West is kind of his big theme, but it's always in opposition to the Western as we think been in movies or in popular Western literature sort of the mythology the west so. The whole idea of cowboys and railroad man. Rugged individualists, the whole myth of. Western expansion Western settlement something that he's always looking at from a very critical angle. When we think about this idea of like the great American writer and the Great American novel, which is probably all just a false notion, while the feels like in many people's minds like a terrible. Oh, that people know of Wallenstein. They, know the title usually angle of repose and crossing to safety both books that sold very well as in addition to being critical success says. But he's not one of those people that's on the curriculum. For example you said in your essay that he's the writer that you come across on shelves of books where you like you rent a cabin for the summer, and there are inevitably a copy or two of worn paperbacks of his novels, and and and that's the way I came across stagner. What is his reputation in the country? Did he get the recognition that he deserved I think in his lifetime. He was pretty well. We won or was a finalist for most of the major awards Pulitzer in the National Book Award, and he he was a very powerful and important figure in the world of creative writing. I mean the the the list of his students you know includes Berry. Edward Abbey Tillie Olsen Robert Stone Larry. mcmurtry Ken Casey so the people who pass through Stanford and were stagner fellows. There is part of legacy in American writing. Kind of off to the side of whether people are still reading his books, but but I think there is this interesting status where it's not that he's obscure, forgotten neglected, but he's feels a little bit. Marginal to me a little bit, maybe unassimilated.

One Extra East West Round. They also told him if he wasn't top twenty points he couldn't raise the final race and he's like really so there. Are you have to write west? And he's just been make a lot of sense. I mean guys are out there. There's plenty of room. There's not many east coast guys going right so yeah.

"The echoes theater in Salt Lake City. Migrating birds flying for thousands of miles. Did you know that Utah is a very popular pitstop. Why is that the great Salt Lake? It's like a giant waste a service station where the birds can feast fatten up and wrist. In fact, ten million birds ten million stop by the great Salt Lake every year. And if you're counting that is three times as many birds as people living in Utah. Yeah, and there are some pretty charismatic species who call the great Salt Lake there part time home. My next guest is here to tell us all about a few Jimmy Butler is a coordinator of the great Salt Lake institute at Westminster college here in Salt Lake City. Welcome to the program. Why the lake is so special to the migrating birds they. I mean, we all know that great. So lake has salt in it, right. And a lot of times people say to me, oh, well, it's dead or nothing lives in there. And really, it's so alive that sometimes it smells and you might have smelled that smell. In fact, my son, John often tells me, mom, it reminds me of you. Love comes in many flavors does. It smells. Is there anything special about the salt? Well, I think one of the really cool things about great Salt Lake is that it's not just salty. It's super hyper saline to fresh water and everything in between. And so that's a huge diversity of habitats for lots of different microorganisms and bugs and the birds that eat all of those bugs. So the lake is is full of shrimp to is. That was my first love at great Salt Lake is the brand shrimp brine. Shrimp are really special because they're the only organism that really live the macro invertebrate that lives in great Salt Lake fulltime, and they're really cool thing about him is that they lay these hard walled cysts. They're like the little eggs that people harvest in use as fish food and those little brain shrimp. They can hatch out in the springtime and repopulate the lake for all of those birds. And one of my favorite facts about brain Trump is that at some times in great Salt Lake, there's so many brain trim. There's. The biomass equal to one point eight million people in the lake at one time. So one point, I mean, like the Wasatch front in great Salt Lake at one time. What kind of other kinds of birds you find the name? Some of the popular birds and the great. I mean, it's hard to name. There's two hundred sixty species of birds that live at great Salt Lake as sometime during the year. Definitely eared grebes there these little tiny waterbirds and they feed primarily on brine shrimp. So every single day, those little eared grebes they have to eat twenty eight thousand branch shrimp. So they picked them out one by one out of the water. They don't filter feed every second. They have to catch to branch room every every second. Another unusual species that loves to hang out is the white pelican. All these white pelicans, American white pelicans come to great Salt Lake to breed. So there's lots of these little barren islands. They come to scratch their little bear in Nessin, lay their eggs and breed. We're not taking calls this hour, but if you have any questions, we have a couple of microphones in the house. Feel free to come and ask questions, and there's a huge colony living on an island called gunnison island, right? Yeah, gunnison island, it's a protected island. So the only way that you can go, there is if you trespass which you shouldn't do, and and the only other way is to go with the Utah division of wildlife resources who manages and conserves populations of branch rope and birds at great Salt Lake. And this island is a couple of miles long by maybe half half a mile wide, and it doesn't have any trees. It's very rocky and there's just like small vegetation on there. It's exactly perfect for pelicans. Wow. You were talking about the odor of birds. There's gunnison have its own unique odor. Yeah..
