We need to understand who is considered a robocaller s aircrafts, the Wall Street Journal tells us, it's not as easy as that may seem Sara, where do we stand on the rules about robocalls, that I wrote about specifically has to do with the sort of middle ground. So there is sort of little debate that robocalls, that Cam customers are bad. And those that customers that their child schools closing earlier, sort of benign, but there's this big middle ground, where legitimate businesses want to call their customers them, and there are very specific rules around how they can do that.

And so that decision from court with over a year ago. So this is the question that hasn't been answered for quite some time.

In the meantime, you talk about that the challenges if view were put on a no call list and you still got calls. Does that show that that's not really working well? That's a little bit of a different conversation. Like if you're, if you're on the national do not call registry and a company that is all that's a violation of the telephone consumer Protection Act.

So consumers have brought a thousands of, of lawsuits for violations of the, the main lava telephone consumer Protection Act that's meant to protect customers from telemarketing abuses, and companies can be find anywhere from five hundred dollars to fifteen hundred dollars per violation of that. So there have been some pretty hefty settlements that have resulted from those consumer claims on businesses say, you know, there's different court rulings on this. It's hard to know exactly what is acceptable and processes to use for this, and they want clarity.

In terms of what they provide to for, you know, flagging that issue is there, a specific type of company that does not want to be considered a robocaller? I mean, most legitimate businesses that want to be able to quickly and, you know, at scale contact their customers want to be able to use some sort of automated dialing system, just because it's cheaper and more efficient what businesses advocate for is.

But that's where you get into the difference of opinion is admittedly, like a pretty wonky corner. In terms of. Does the technology you're using randomly or sequentially generate a number and the call without human venture. There's all these sort of very nitty gritty thresholds that the different interested parties are advocating for her against here. The bottom line is, it's pretty confusing, and it probably will not be cleared up for a while. That's correct. Thank Sarah's aircraft of the Wall Street Journal. It's twelve minutes before the.

"When a dangerous storm approaches people in its path are supposed to check off a to do list, assemble a watertight backpack, with essentials, find and move important papers in your house. And our next guest says, perhaps most importantly, get to know your neighbors. Sarah crass has been on our air before talking about her experience in Houston during hurricane Harvey and in the Houston chronicle yesterday she wrote about her to do list. She wants to help those in the path of Florence avoid making the same stakes. She did last year, Sarah, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me. I want to start with your advice about neighbors. You write that when things get grim, it doesn't matter how different you are or what political sign you have that is now submerged in water. Explain what you mean? Well, we didn't know most of our neighbors before Harvey happened. I mean, we would see them every once in a while but and say, hi and be friendly, but we didn't know them and it was amazing how how generous they all were that day when we were all in bad shape and we. All ended up at this one neighbor's house who has a an elevated house. And immediately when I showed up, they offered me like a bandage for my knee because I was banged up and coffee and beer. It's like, get my nerves. Yeah. And we all just sat around and talked and helped each other through it. Some of them had been through flood before and we were all pulling for each other. And I think it's really important to know who's around you just so that you can learn from them when we spoke last year. You said there were a bunch of things you wished you had done before the storm came putting together, an emergency kit was one thing, and here's something else you said we should have had pet carriers out. We should have had a a to go kit for them to. We didn't have our phones in plastic bags, so they were in our pockets when we're walking through the water. Houston is not in the path of hurricane Florence, but do you now have those kinds of things packed all the time in case of an emergency? Yes, as part of our rebuilding. I made sure that we had a very thorough emergency kit. We have pet carriers for every pet. We have life jackets because my husband went back to the house in chest high water. And it's just amazing that nothing bad happened to him. We have backpacks filled with all of the things that we would need to evacuate immediately. And I feel much more confident now about our ability to evacuate and be safe and at least somewhat calm for the those couple of days after you evacuate. And do you think there's some version of this that everyone ought to have, whether they live in a hurricane prone area or not, because if not hurricanes, maybe it's earthquakes or wildfires or tornadoes? Yes. I learned the the great importance of having an emergency get this time, and you know, we wake up every day, not knowing what's going to happen to us and things happen, and the ability to have this bag just ready to go, I think would've saved us so much heartache. Something practical that I would not have thought of as you say, take photos of all the big expensive items in your house and catalog appliance serial numbers. Explain why? Well, if you have led insurance, you have to prove. You've that you've lost everything. So in the midst of demoing our house, we had to also take pictures of everything. And if we had had that already available to us, it was just one step we wouldn't have had to do. And so now in this day or two before the storm is projected to make landfall, what do you think people in its path should be doing? Aside from evacuating if they're in an evacuation zone, just trying to be as calm as possible and to think about what you have that would be destroyed like what? What is on the floor? What is near the ground that you want to save? I made the mistake of having so much of my sentiments items under a bed, and I lost all of that all of my journals and letters and photos and just think about those things that you may not be thinking about right now you're probably thinking about just saving your life, but at some point, your life's going to come back to normal and you're going to want those things you're, you might lose writer, Sarah crests for. Piece in the Houston chronicle his how to prepare for a flood. Thanks for joining us again. Thank you.
