Todd and Caller James Discuss Hillary Clinton's Chances of Another Presidential Run

"I'm not the only one that thinks Hillary Clinton is going to run here. Let's go to Sherwood Arkansas, James on the line. Now James did you guys get any event storm damage over the weekend? No, just a little win. That's all we got. Well, glad to hear that. Glad to hear that. Well, you know, it's funny because honestly, I believe she has to run because in her own mind, she really thinks she's the other chance. She thinks she well, she thinks she won back in 2016, so she's still not over that. True and true in that. As a matter of fact, do we have the audio of her weeping as she's reading? Holler at me when we've got that. But James, I'm very intrigued by a Hillary Clinton Donald Trump matchup. I think Trump cleans her clock to be honest with you. Well, you know, with and I know everybody wants to say, there was no election fraud. Really, then how come 5 20 states all of a sudden go down at the same time and then come back up at the same time and the votes are all swapped from Donald Trump to Joe Biden. Yeah, look, James, I think you raise a very good point

How to Deal With Adversities That Can Distract You From Your Business

"So what i wanted to do. Today is have kind of a round table discussion about how you will go. The doctor z than how you aaron antony. I'll go last about how we compartmentalize these very bad things or great things that are unrelated from the daily tasks that we have to. Because i see a lot of entrepreneurs who will put their entire week on hold because their second cousin just passed away in although the second cousin does and although that is tragic. You can't just put your business on hold and shut it down for the week as you mourn and deal with it. I see business owners. That are taking a week off of their business because they're so overwhelmed by the geopolitical whatnot. They can't focus. So i want to ask you dr z. How do you eat in the short-term looks says you've got to eat while you dream how do you deliver on the short range commitments that you have while also being aware of what's going on and how that may affect you in the mid and long-term yeah i feel like that's kind of a two part question. I don't know. I feel like eating dreaming over here and then dealing with obstacles and problems in every day that if you let them we'll keep you from your long range goals so i'm kind of kind of put them together. I have a concept that i that i call showtime and i had committed this year Clay and i have said this before. But i am committed this year. I'll blame covid. I'm gonna write my book. Business pig working title. One of my chapters showtime showtime and showtime is about avenue the ability to phase two to completely knock out everything in your brain that is getting in the way. We'll make you think of something other than the most important thing. Top of your list on your to go to do deal. So when i for example before i walked in the man cave. I got a text and the text really irritated me. I mean really irritated me. I wanted to sit as a wanted marched back out to my car because you know we don't have good silk coverage when you come into the back of the man cave and i wanted to go fire off.

I'm going to focus on questions that are asked him and try to bring a little humor back. We've in some old timey song and make up new lyrics because the lyrics vinnie song. I will attempt to do that.

General Tom Thumb: Not a Colonel of Truth

"Life started out. Pretty normal for charles sherwood stratton when he was born to a housekeeper and a carpenter in eighteen thirty eight in connecticut pretty normal ended when he was six months old as did his growth he basically just stopped growing. He was otherwise healthy. In doctors were stumped normal ended completely in the winter of eighteen. Forty two when one finneas taylor. Barnum showed up at his family's home chasing rumors of an extraordinarily small child. Four year old. Charlie list now in show business earning his family three dollars a week. Barnum immediately began promoting his tiny talent. When charlie and his mother arrived the following week to new york. They were surprised to see banners on the american museum bragging about the arrival of general tom thumb in typical barnum style. He had taken absolutely wild liberties with the truth. He took the name. Tom thumb from an english fairy tale character. Basically thumbed lena posters and handbills claiming that general tom thumb had been brought to america from europe at great expense and that he was eleven years old not sure how that jibes military service and eleven year old and it was nice that he aged him up to eleven. We wouldn't want people to think that he was exploiting a small child. I don't kid yourself. This is pre child. Labor laws are really any labor laws. There was no such thing as a cultural concept of exploitation. Charlie and his mother moved into an apartment in the museum building and barnum said about teaching charlie to sing dance and do impressions and act. Like a preteen. Instead of a preschooler i guess. Barnum recalled him as an apt student with a great deal of native talent and a keen sense of ludicrous. By all accounts young charlie stratton loved performing and he and barnum were genuinely fond of one. Another

James Harden says Rockets 'can't be fixed' as Houston reportedly talks trade with at least six teams

"First thing you need to know is that james harden wants out of houston. Oh you already knew that. Well now james harden really wants houston and he's not just showing it with his play which has been the case this season but he's essentially saying it in postgame press conferences after the second loss in a row to the los angeles lakers consecutive losses. Here where they got smashed. The rocket said they lost by seventeen but they were down by twenty one in the first quarter it was over used when teams play twice the team that lost the first game fights back on his play has been lacklustre but in the post game press conference he answered two questions and then he walked right off. I answer was essentially. We're not good enough now. We're not good enough. The second answer quote. I love the city. I literally have done everything that i can. I mean the situation is crazy. It's something that i don't think can be fixed. And he walked off and that's essentially what he's doing to the houston rockets. It's kind of like the. Anthony davis situation a couple years ago in new orleans work. Anthony davis was halfheartedly. Playing it was very very evident. It was very awkward to watch it for pelican's fans and the entire league. It became an issue in. The commissioner's office eventually. Anthony davis sat down. He wore that. That's all folks sweater and evening with. That's all folks wafaa. Foulkes harden wants to be dealt now and is not good for the locker room there in houston where new rocket john wall has to answer questions and his basically saying that guy doesn't want to be here he said after the game but when you have certain guys in the mix that don't want to buy in it's going to be hard to do anything special or anything good as a basketball team will. There is one really really really good player on that team. And it's james harden but he does not want to be there anymore more evident after his first three games this season it was a showcase. He scored thirty seven per game in those first three games. He sat down for one game. Basically said all right. I've shown that good. I've got the track record. He's averaged seventeen over his last five. I really hope the league doesn't have to intervene. But james harden was hoping himself that he was walking from that press conference onto a plane and on his way to another team at sherwood. It felt like watching that press conference.

Make Your Zoom Meetings Soar Remote Work John Paul Mendocha - burst 14

"Doing Zoom and working remotely because that's the world that we're currently living in today, and it's probably going to be the world that we're going to be living in for not just. A short period of time but because we're starting to understand that you know what we can get a lot of work done remotely in very a lot of industries we need to grasp, hold its concept being able to do as zoo meeting and do it right all right, and so we're we're GonNa talk about some of these little pieces here as we finish up here in this hour so. Let's talk about a couple of really we you talked about the green screen, but I think one of the things that two things that we need to talk about is audio and video. And bring up to really fabulous points and I am right on it and Let's. Let's talk about the video portion I, what should we know about video because we can make some mistakes there Why I think the the first mistake that we make is that is that when we get into the whole realm of video. We immediately go. Hey High def right I want high. DEF. and. All that sounds good because of course, we're watching I definitely and television and by the way watching something happened. Is Infinitely more. Is Easier and simpler than you actually making it happen. So you want to look at your resolution and see if you can actually tone down your resolution because. They're probably not gonNA WANNA see four K or whatever. And by the way very few people have the bandwidth to do four K. Right now. So video is important and and you WanNa make sure that you understand how your video works, how how it's going to be put together and you can. You could start out inexpensively and you can go very expensively You can actually get a really decent zoom call out of a iphone or android with with a face with a front facing camera. But what you WanNa do you WanNa get a stand and have this stand hold it instead of you because let's face it. If if you're holding your camera, you know if you're holding like this way you know and you've got this little jitter will cause your hand will get tired and you're doing this stuff You're not going to be not going to be very effective. So just make sure that you understand that and and you know. Test see what is like also, you can make videos on your on your PC, your Mac you know on your laptop makes videos and see what the camera it looks like. Big Mistake that people make is they got nostril cam going that's great. You know which one I'm talking about right. Looks like it looks like Sherwood forest up there but you know you got these guys who they don't even they're clueless by the way if you want to know how to make your laptop, go up up up, I will give you the cheap way to do it. You could go get some paper that would go into your printer and just keep stacking up keep stacking up. Reams of paper until have the right line of sight. So people aren't looking up there and going. I wonder. Don't want them to wonder, hey, how's how's that? For a really inexpensive way to do that and you're right you know you can take books or whatever to raise your laptop if you don't have a separate camera, I think probably you and I, I have a camera on a tripod that's a USB camera attached here so I'm looking right at it, but you don't have to have. That you don't have to spend that money to do that type of thing. So you most as you point out in the book, most of your laptops have a camera in there. Let's get rid of knows. Kim Let's. Let's get some books and let's get that. Let's get that raised there. So we can see you right. Let's talk about audio. Let's talk about audio because I think we we think that because Ron video that audio is not important, but it really is critical. Isn't it? Audio's very important. Now, I I happen to prefer just because of my personal style and what I do is I wear I, wear a gaming headset so you can go buy a gaming headset for seventy. Bucks. Plug into a USB and it does a good job. It it. You know it sounds good by the way it kills lots of surrounding noise and that makes me the MIC stand. You know. So matter how much moving my head and it's funny because I, what I'm. Looking at buying headsets I was talking to. Somebody. Who is really a good audio engineering and we're talking about my problem, which is I had a really nice microphones like Jay has in fact, I have several but the problem is I would come off center. So my volume would keep getting funky and changed and he said, well, tell me how much you move your head and I said, well, it's got like halfway between Ray Charles and Stevie. Wonder. and. Said Okay here's the solution. The solution is you have to be the Mike Stand. So I bought actually have multiple headsets but for for seventy bucks at a best buy, you can buy cheaper but you know you now have this and it's great isolation people are I watch a lot of people who take the little headset that comes with their phone and they have that they're holding the microphone up to them and let's face it a microphone. That's the size of a pinhole. That's that's what your voice is being replicated through. Right so you spend a few bucks you'll get a, it'll be a lot better. Some people don't like to wear these because it makes them look I. Don't know whatever. But you know you gotta think in terms of a good microphone and you can get pretty decent microphones for less than one hundred bucks.

The way it works out there. I mean, even when the parks game, they didn't like the county parks, he's still don't. A lot of them don't that's correct. Now, the of all the people that vote vote against the millage it's the neighbors that have all this money rolling past their house spend on their community they didn't like.

So then the cops started to bear down on this place for something to do it looks like A. And then what happened. Well. If you're talking about. Well I'm not talking about anything I want you to talk. I was not on site when the sheriff's deputy drew the. Gun. In the wild shot was fired. But But things were getting serious. Politically. I was you know I was sixteen at the time. It was out trying to catch people trying to sneak in on horseback at the time it happened. You're on horseback. Patrol the place on horses. The catch people trying to sneak yet if they all watch woodstock in saw how we got in. So that's what they did. Yup. Yup, that's how they snuck in without paying two bucks or four bucks. And then and then the cops came in they kind of ruined the party. So to speak is what couples down to. Yeah. Nine hundred sixty, nine, they they didn't like the first one. Odd was held indoors. see five. Bombed in like that bandy. MC. Nay saying kick out the jams motherfucker The cops broke it up. They broke up because they use speech. In an indoor event. Did did anybody come to your rescue? Yeah Peter handled it very well. He did yeah, yes. Yes. So. So Mc five on this stage, they say kicked out there saw their signature song kick out the jams motherfucker and then the cops come in and shut the thing down. Yeah. LEARNING MERCY DID ANYBODY GET ARRESTED Now. Lease kick them out. Oh My. Gosh. Okay we'll. People that are younger than me my children's generation gotta remember it was a miracle. Love it or leave it remember that. Yes like do. And the Merle Haggard Song I'm proud to be an okie from Yup. And he sings about how how in in Oklahoma they don't smoke pot. Right. But he smoked at every day. He got this images read as the ultimate redneck and he was he was using dope everyday MAZING stuff. So in June twenty, six of nineteen. Ninety, four. Don McLean would sing. The day, the music died rate nineteen, seventy four. Seventy four excuse me. That's the day the music died. And on stage as you recall. Bob. Seger. And there was also, Sammy Hagar And Spooky Tooth As last Dow's last dance out there. Now, You said Your Dad. Eventually sold it. Yes. And do you remember what year that was? He sold it twice I like I said Came back to him. Seventy, eight, nineteen, eighty, I, believe. It's not that bad if you sell something twice. Once, you get to keep the money got first thing you're smart. So your dad sells the place and then And then what happened You took. The Canadian highway seventeen? out to. The West Coast. And did sort of the grand tour of the Weston came back. And the next summer, he became the first carriage or first caretaker of the carriage museum on mackinac island. And that's what he did. As long as he continued working, which is he'd gone back to work in two more weeks if he hadn't died when he did. Missing. So. Eight years older had no intentions of retiring ever. At, eighty at eighty. Do you think your dad understood his place in history. At least history of Michigan Music. Not. He did. I don't I don't think he knew. The extent of it, but he did appreciate the fact that that it was important. I always thought that. Peter Kavanagh pretty much ran ashore. My father was along for the ride because he owned the property but Peter whose assured me that was not. So you know that my father was a very active managing partner. So Your Your Dad. I mean you look at Sherwood forest at least When I look at it. John Ryan was here sitting next to me today. I'd say John. Elliott asking a question. What do you think they remember most? The voters this community. About Sherwood forest you. Messing with it. Or them listening to people like stevie wonder smokey Robinson Bob Seger? Sammy Hagar. Which one do you think they're going to be remembered by doing?.

"I just remember him as Bob. y'All. Seriously, he's sort of the same way still is. My understanding. Down late country down there in Oakland County in you, you might see him. At McDonalds or it's Just anyplace he's not he doesn't go with an entourage. Township we we shopped at the same grocery store I just never bumped into. Yeah. Yeah he's just he's just in your everyday guy is he doesn't go with entourage. Friend of mine his daughter in the fifth grade. And So she just told me that you know he he called ahead of time for Parents Teachers Conference in made arrangements and he's look don't want special treatment. Isa's but my appearance can be disruptive. You know. So let's work something out. And she's you know that was her attitude he was just Bob. Yeah. Now you're dead. Also, I didn't want this to go without mentioned because it goes to your. To your comments about what your father wanted it to be remembered you know what this place should be remembered as one of the things that I'm sure a lot of little girls in the area. Remember is that that was also a day camp for the for the girl scouts. It was. And and for the curly areas well as Davidson. They use that for many years And also for the one of the synagogues in flint had Mac out there every summer. Now the. The The larger. Events that you had you. Let me rephrase. It you had. While Wednesday's got going and got wild. At a fair statement. Yeah. May Be an understatement. Because there's a lot of people are gonNA, listen to this who know what those were. And then there got to be Super Sunday. Well Super Sunday was I. It was Super Sunday goes back today's with the Rx yes. Okay. I thought you said there were only four of those. Now Four Wednesdays during the summer. Now. I don't know how many Super Sundays there were. Okay and it was Super Sunday inside or outside outside. Now. Go ahead the Sunday concerts. We're two bands you know one open and then you know Bob Seger. Donovan or somebody else you know foul Donovan Yeah. Oh. Yeah. The psychedelic folk singer. Back the ides march was an indoor concert I don't remember who open for them but. while. You're one of my other favorites because he really liked the brass. Rock bands whose can't travel with brass like that. Doesn't fit in the Hippie band does he w Vanden hold it all? Okay. So so in Nineteen seventy-one, there's it's reported that there is a crowd of ten thousand people show up to listen to the Amboise Dukes Brownsville station and Bob Seger. And by nineteen, seventy to. The last show is held out there do jury call that last show and who played it seventy Seventy four before they don't have their. Master. Okay. No that's no. I'm talking about this Sunday event ended all. In seventy. Two. Do. You probably don't remember who played that. Exactly all right. This is a rock and roll Trivia contest that going on here. So, the last show was. Ted nugent. And Frigid Pink. Gin Of course the king of the whiplash. In no civic center every year. and. Frigid. So they ended they what was basically the staple of Sherwood Forest From the beginning of all this. Extravaganza with music ended in nineteen, seventy two however wild Wednesdays continued in some form for a couple more years. Yeah and in indoor concert. Continued as well until. I remember Bob Seger played Christmas. Day Nineteen seventy four. And I don't know if that was last one or not. A, gift to that in a minute. You're correct. Here, we gotta take another break. I WANNA introduce you to Barb Barton a lansing singer songwriter wrote this song water. For the people of Flint. Bar volunteered. To provide water and other staples to those who had been affected by the flint water crisis. And as result of that she. Produced Stay documentary sharp movie, which is now on the movie circuit and getting a lot of awards. This is a theme song from that movie written for the people of Flint. who have suffered so greatly in the water crisis. Enjoy.

"During the year, there were two four wedding receptions every weekend. now there were. Various parties, different sorts. Church groups in the pavilions for the Hay rides, and sleigh rides. that's that's what he really wanted it to be known for be remembered for. When you're bringing people like smokey Robinson and the miracles in. Stevie. Wonder Bob Seger the place. I. Don't think it's GonNa be remembered for the union leaders or. Some preachers in Flint. And Really, I, think it grew it. It's legacy grew after it no longer played music right after the music died. Well. He he sold a couple of times on land contract and it came back like boomerang before he finally did sell it. But. It. You know when when the music ended it, it sort of took some of the wind out of his sails. Sell it. None of us, wanted to be honest with you My father was a workaholic. that park was a sixteen hour a day thing for him. was never even mentioned that one of his kids would take it over. Don't even I don't even remember being mentioned. and. You Work There for Dad. Yes. And did that color the debt? How long did that go on? Guess Until I was about nineteen from the time that I could travel and pick up papers. When he wanted to pick up papers I take it. But yeah, that was that was the thing I mean here old enough to clean something. You're old enough to work that was that. He had a brother that that participated in this endeavor. Yeah my oldest brother were General Motors. What's his name? Don. Okay Eason Davidson style. and then I have two sisters Diana. Denise. In they of course of course both worked out there lifeguarding and cleaning and such. And I have a younger brother. I say. Well So eventually, what happens to to the music aspect to this? Is that the music industry essentially changed in the. In the early Seventies. And then we we started getting big promoter so. Smaller. Smaller venues. So you know. They they needed. They'll smaller operators have either become bigger the they didn't they didn't stick with it through artists. We're going other places than that power. To an extent. We never looked at say Pine Knob as competition. you know they were a bigger venue. You know and they could detract bigger acts. But there was a tragic accident. And that was when my father decided to close it. I don't. Care to go into that. Too much to certain on Allah papers at the time. But The larger venues weren't like I said, they weren't direct competition. There was plenty of room for Pine Knob in Sherwood Forest. Longer. It would have been there. But. No the first wild Wednesday happened according to my research on June twenty fifth nineteen sixty-nine. See there it is closest to this. Wednesday. Close. Whole. That was the first concert. Now. They claim that four thousand rock fans showed up. and. They paid two dollars to get in. Some of the prices were as well with four dollars a car load. Whose idea was that one? Whose idea was that? I don't know. But if you look at some of the old posters, you'll see four or five dollars a carload. Loaded them up to. And Remember who the first act was how old were you? I was I was twelve and I really don't I mean the concerts all blurred to me. Hey Gotcha. Well, let me tell you who they were. Bob Seeger. Was the first wild Wednesday. The rational thousand will be the rascals Mussa rational. S RC. Was a big time Detroit rock band. And the Bang. That was before punk. Rock. So that was the first, that was the first Rodeo for her Sherwood Forest Bob. SEGER still look back at this. Did you get to know him at all? Yes yeah. Yet and my mother of courses, his biggest fan or was his biggest banish Zeh. Really Yeah. He even her on mackinac island. After my folks retired. Will tell us a Bob Seger story. Somewhere I've recently moved and everything is isn't boxes but I have pictures of me doing the bunny. Happen Hokey pokey Bob Seger. With Tommy. Jump in with the saxophone in the bunny hop. Bob Seger recounts a story where Tommy Jumps up on top of the speaker in a storm comes oh gosh. That's in fact. It was reported that that was his number, one memory of Sherwood forest. What was so remarkable about this. Well the fact is the storm is coming in speakers are swaying. Got All hands trying to keep that tower from falling. You know in time he's just up there. Not. It's crazy. Is a bit of a High Wire Act. Yeah. Without without any rescue of worlds. Right You know Bob Seger. We go into the. Lower part of the the older hall, which is what served as a dressing room. An old jukebox down there, and that was put it on continuous play when he was around. And he would play a lot of your Combo jazz and big band. You know. Of course, the bunny happened Hokey pokey. Now do you ever talked to him because he doesn't live far from? No he doesn't live far from me, but I don't I haven't been in touch with him on. What what what kind of guy was easy. How would you describe him. He was. Sort of Blue Collar Bob. definitely, not full of himself. In any stretch? Then he was also you know the protagonist in turn the.

Agenda will resume our our program so So So what I wanted to ask you is You know your father really maybe it was Peter. See that came up with the idea of woodstock was right around that period when he made this deal with Peterson cavenaugh. Do Remember what they called the event that a they started to stage WTC. There were superstar Sundays and Wild Wednesdays. Whiled, Wednesday yes. So well, Wednesday wild Wednesday was always the Wednesday closest to the summer solstice. The others had different names. in Mr or whatever but. Yeah. That was all the promoters head. That was pretty much pretty sure. That was Peter. So you're you're Peter Seeing your father. Had agreed to this. Really what they saw was was they were trying to play off of what happened woodstock basically by. The farm. And the music and the water. And this outdoors kind of atmosphere where you know. Peace in love in the coexistence can exist. That being apt description. Yeah. Yeah. They clearly played off of it. I mean there were twelve hour outdoor rock concerts. Now They, didn't play all night. He'll copters was the only way to get in not now. Believe. The top crowd was around fourteen to sixteen thousand right in that range. and. Your Dad. A course initially bought this property for farming. But His view about this was quite different than a lot of the A. Lot. Of the fathers of the day, what was what would you remember him saying about this whole thing? Ideally, he'd open up the kids like this now. I don't know one of the most common sayings was the kids have to have some place to go. That was no. That was this the kids have to have someplace to go. On he was on the ritual township zoning board and yes, that was what we have to bring some jobs you know here. For locals. Kids have to have something to do. You, know. How many how many people were employed their? Hard to say that any one time I would say ten. That continent musicians, right. Or Peter C or the radio crew or any of that. Was the whole different group. Had An economic impact on that area. and. So. One of the things that I discovered is that it had it had crowds at were as big as a concerts. When it comes to picnics. Picnics at this place will. Sure. A lot of families came out I mean there were picnic tables everywhere. Organizations would hold picnic series. Well, oh. Yes. The UAW like you said every Labor Day, that was huge. That was a mess. That was worse than cleaning up after fourteen thousand, hippies. To. The Flint Journal reported that there were about ten thousand union guys out there families yes. Yeah. It was. It was huge. A lot of people remember those they probably didn't drink. They probably drink more than the kids right? Because kids weren't hold enough to drink doubt. No doubt. Okay. When did your dad passes not alive now? No March of two thousand. And What was Your Dad's I'm sure you had some conversations with your dad about you know what? This was a young created defected the touch. So many thousands of people in the. Michigan. particularly. Jesse. County. But what was what was it that he wanted Sherwood forest to be remembered as The family gathering place. That's really when. The last conversation, we had three days before his heart attack. you know he did regret the concerts in that but but he was always afraid that was going to end up being his legacy. In, it was the family gathering place that that was really important to him. So he wanted it more to recognize this as a park and recreation area for the residence of community. The concerts were. What the four times in the summer Out Big outdoor concerts at indoor concerts you know virtually every Sunday night September through may but..

"The shopworkers that came to flint the from Arkansas Alabama and Tennessee and They. Didn't have a place for their families together. Anymore. And that's really what he wanted was a place for families to gather. and. So he he sought Morris a park than he did anything else. Yes. Remember he opened before the county parks came. Right. Exactly. And I in. Your Dad made an interesting comment. He said this is going to be a a park for people that left the city that. That left the country you're left. The farm was going to be a park for those people I thought that was. Quite, A. Quite a vision that he had in flint course allowed to those by the thousands. Now. Your Dad created all kinds of things out there. Tell us a little bit about some of the other stuff. The park aspect of this place other than just does a concert venue. Well other picnic grounds you know once again before the county parks in that people didn't have any place to really go for a picnic. Doug Doug, the ponds I mentioned earlier. But up tobogganing hill, you have to put that dirt somewhere when you dig the pine. A He also wisely sold them Carl. Soil. From that, marshy? Area. as a soil RECON air conditioner. To the federal government. So he did up right there. There are outdoor pavilions, horse-drawn Hay rides, and sleigh rides. really a dre. On sleds or wheels. A horseback riding stable. And there was an amusement park. Rides were brought in by others. Dad took kind of take. The Rock, you mean, the rides being the horses and stuff no, the the tilt, a whirl, the The amusement park aspect of yeah. He's becoming embarrassing, Barnum and Bailey Circus here with all this activity. Isn't he barely came out there too they played there several times. horrify summers zero.

The motown acts all performed while the four tops to. Yes. Missed them. Were Yeah and. So in the early days, stevie wonder would have played in that Shell not in some larger. Right. So a very, very intimate, very intimate. Setting. The dance. It was a teen dance. He played drums and harmonica and sang. Did you ever meet him? Yes. I blind person I ever met. OKINA person was he? I didn't get to spend any time with them. but you know he he seemed to be quite the gentleman. I think that's true I think he is still. Just a little older reports. From Nineteen fifty-nine I was bad at math but. Now he was would've played later snap because I. Remember Him I don't have. To, and then my notes tell me that in nineteen sixty, four things moved along and then. Don Brewer played in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, four at that stage or. Stages. The Jazz. Masters. With Tennis Masters Masters. Now Don Brewer for those of you that aren't from Flint that are listening to this from California. We have we have audience in Ireland. Radio. Free Flint. Started in my. Little Front Room here in the. In the Huron, national forest. Is Hurt in Ireland of all places I can't believe. Don Brewer by the way is later became part of the grand funk railroad which was. which was one of the better known bands ever come out of the Flint area. Also smokey Robinson and the miracles. They played in nineteen sixty four. Dad. Menu. they're still going by the way. Did you know that the miracles? S is to. Give you a little attributed. The miracles have as their lead singer singer. Now, who posted Elliot does sound like smokie. He's the guy can't think his name right off the top of my head but he's actually a flint guy. I don't know I think there's one miracle left. Some like that. And they used to play the jazz festival in. Detroit. Okay. So last person was Terry night, of course, who was the infamous a musician in ultimately he became a promoter himself to near manager is a man of Jack Manner Manage Grand. Funk. He'll. That's right. And they didn't have a good relationship at the end I don't think. Did you know him very well? No, not well at all no. And then back in the day but I wouldn't today. Now, then there was a fellow by the name of Peter C Cabinet came along. Who is he? Was He was probably the best promoter. That that ever came to flint or possibly anywhere else. As zany as he was, he had A. Businessman side to him. That was always in control. and. He was just a delight to be around even as a kid he was always a delight. He he's a smart guy. A Smart Smart Guy Peter Sees Day job at that time. Was Working at W. TAC radio. He did the morning show I believe. And so was really a disc jockey that that ended up. Expanding his career in conjunction with your dad. Yes. So what's your dad think of this Guy Peterson cabinet? There was a mutual admiration between the two of them I've heard Peter, say several times he thought my father was a kindest person he ever known. In My Dad certainly certainly respected and loved him. Very, good working relationship. Or see is is He's living in California. I believe now now. Cincinnati. He moved from California up two years ago I think. Okay got a daughter in this area in the Detroit area. He's got a daughter further south on the I. Seventy Five Corridor in one in Cincinnati. So. Okay now, Peter see being the ultimate promoter of the day that was before a. ticketmaster. Right. What you know you know gene. In reading up on this subject. A Lotta guys who played Sherwood forest still talk about Peterson Cavanaugh as being someone who was just remarkable person who gathered people. And created something. Beautiful. It. Is, an amazing person he is I still talk to Mary once in Awhile So. What what was significant repeater see? The DJ? Is He in nineteen sixty nine nate tell me he made a deal with your dad what was that? I don't know. I was twelve years old at the time. I don't know any of the particulars of the details but my understanding is that w TAC had an exclusivity? You know and he would handle the promotions. So. They struck a deal. Really don't know the details. They struck some kind of deal. Anyway we know that and and. became the sponsor nineteen, sixty nine, and from there things started to roll. Yes And it was rock and roll at that point, right? Father that's the year my father built the You know what he used to call the. Newhall. You know the larger of the reception halls. Now. Let's go back to your dad here for a minute This concert venue. was quite large. The. What made it? What made it such a fun place as it was such a great expanse. Don't you think? The size helped. Yeah. How many acres company acres was it to know? Just shy of two hundred. And and your dad never really saw this as someplace that was going to be a concert venue. Not Originally now. It was.

It's crazy that they came to to to Davidson. Michigan. To play all those great artists who now played all around the world probably ten times So anyway, Dean. Tell us about your family. We'll let we'll get into wild Wednesdays here in a minute, but tell us tell us how Sherwood forest. Got Rolling. Up My dad was a dairy farmer. With Acre John M fifteen. And he bought an adjacent farm. That fronted on Richfield road. and. He had a wet spot. He could never do anything with. tried to drain. It tried everything he could. Finally gave up in Doug it as a pond. And that really was the beginning of things. The The second firmly bought down Richard. Road had a small house on. That he started renting out. for parties in such. In, somewhere along the relying, got it in his head to. To. Build that first. Reception Hall. which is the one for the Wild Wednesdays you remember from behind the stage. In, he he built hall in Nineteen, Fifty Eight. Believe, it opened and fifty eight. And the idea there was to have dances. Like a wedding hallway like right. I'm told that there were political rallies if this place yes. I was curious to know who had who had a gathering. I really don't have the list Every. December thirty first, the Democratic Party had it. They always booked at a year in advance. held there. There've been out there when he built the second edition nineteen sixty nine. that was the largest haul around. So if you're GONNA do anything of any size you know your next step up was pretty much the Vittoria. Dad. He built this he built this This reception hall. And then, and then it grew and then it grew up from there. Yes. And and then where does the state? There was an outdoor stage there. The original was a band. Shell. just an old fashioned ban show with the. College Concrete Patio for dancing. And that was the early days a lot of APPS. Yeah that was in.

Pastry, Politics, and Pivots

"Seven years ago about this time I was in Fort Lauderdale Florida. I didn't live there but I was given a one way ticket and I flew into the city. I didn't know a single soul but I knew I would touch the lives of thousands. By the time I left in five days so what was going on seven years ago around this time. Barack Obama and Joe Biden were running for reelection and I was part of their advanced team that carried out their events across America. Pretty cool job right. How did I even get it? Well much like the food industry. The world of politics is a small one and I got my connection from my first job out of college working for Nancy Pelosi doing her first speakership in the US House of Representatives. Now I'm not a political junkie. I never was never will be. So why did I take a job so central to it all for the next four years my office would be in the capital and my office view of The Washington Monument? That on so why this damn working for the first female speaker of the House was going to be interesting. Here was a woman in a position with no precedent and now she was second in line to become president in a world built by men founded by men. What was she going to do? How was she going to act? All eyes were on her scrutinizing every move and for me as a young female professional in my early twenties observing. How she embraced. This role was going to change my life and my outlook of women in power across all industries. So what was it like working for Nancy? Pelosi Meryl Streep Playing Anna Wintour in the devil wears Prada's a fairly accurate description of my typical workday. There was energy in the office when she got to work. The kind that made you put your shoes back on your suit jacket so you look presentable. At all times. She was a tough loss with us. Her staff and the two hundred thirty three Democratic members that she represented in Congress. You left every meeting with her feeling like you weren't doing enough. She had goals and she knew how to carry them out. She made decisions with such force and directness that you did not question the outcome and these decisions were big like providing all Americans with healthcare and reviving that American banking system. Pelosi wasn't power and neither we or she doubt that. But in this position making monumental decisions is one thing getting others onboard to make them reality is another and the longer I worked for her the more. I noticed what she did to make that happen. No detail too. Small gop pastor because every detail was important where someone sat at a meeting who was included in a phone call even the order in which someone was introduced at an event and every choice. She made no matter how small was the right one and it was genius. She recognized that it was the details that counted for each person. It was her secret she could make. People feel counted recognized human. It was hospitality. She could remember the details of people's lives the names of spouses children grandchildren enquiring about your health. And following up on it she would write handwritten. Thank yous and well wishes for important events. She lended a human touch to the role of speaker. And I am telling you that is how she has gained the loyalty of those that she leads. How did she become speaker of the House again? It's not because of tactical skill. It's because she's found ways to connect with you as a person my four years working for her help me see what women are capable of at the highest levels of leadership and pressure and that one of the most important qualities that we have more so than our counterparts is that we are better at nurturing relationships and it is a quality that we should embrace in our leadership roles as for me. I didn't have to tap into this just yet in my professional life because things were about to change. How did I pivoted from politics to pastry? It wasn't so much pivot as it was the ground shifting below me as a result of the two thousand eleven elections. The Democrats lost power of the House. Speaker Pelosi lost her post and I lost my job and remember when I said I wasn't a political junkie. Losing my job. Was the universe telling me to stop living someone else's dream that I had other interests and now the curtain was lifted. It was nudging me towards something that I was a junkie about food. Baking had always been a hobby for sure but it was hardly the source of my career. Change it was the wider world of food that drew me in and being curious about food was my hobby. Was there an article about a farmer who is growing apple varieties from the days of George Washington? Was there a documentary about how Vitnamese I started making fish sauce? I watched it and was there a recipe calling for fresh coconut mill. You better be sure. I went out bought a coconut and smash it on my kitchen floor with a hammer. So during this period of unemployment I realized I needed to take this eagerness to learn about food and turn it into something tangible and so I thought might as well make it my job and there was. I was twenty nine years old when I made the switch. Twenty nine years old is when a cook has been cooking in a kitchen for ten years and becomes an executive chef. I was old and new at the same time and I knew I needed a fast track my career so my strategy was twofold to work in the best restaurants in the world and travel and in a span of five years. That's what I did from Chicago to New York across the Pacific Ocean to Asia in Australia. I did not stop I went to school. I stashed I worked. I worked for free. I worked in countries that I legally wasn't allowed to. I sacrificed my my finances and my family and poured my heart and soul into experiences that I opened myself up to because there is nothing more I wanted to do. This was it then. I became a chef. I was a cook became a chef. But really that's just title but it is a title that screams a responsibility to lead. And now I thought how do I want to lead? What kind of leader do I want to be? I'm a woman an ethnic minority of an immigrant family entering late into an industry dominated by men. How many predecessors do I have to look up to not enough? That's for sure but I had to remember. I had the ultimate example to look back on speaker. Pelosi did not see herself. As the first woman in a man's job she simply saw herself as the best person with the skills intellect and humanity for the job and this is what enabled her to be speaker as she saw fit without second guessing herself in regards to her gender and she has become one of the most effective speakers in recent history because of that Donald. Trump will see that for himself soon. Enough I am Sherwood. It and the key to her longevity leadership recognizing the little details that make up our humanity to cultivate loyalty. That is her strength. And that is how I want to lead. Coincidentally we as an industry are in a period of time where we are re evaluating how we treat people gun should be the days of physical verbal mental abuse treating people as they weren't people at all. We can still demand perfection and excellence. But how do we do it in a more dignified way? There's no easy and is going to take a long time for us to change our culture but I do believe women are the ones with an sinks to shape it into something better. How just like my old boss? Look for the details finding humanity and lead with it.

The Perils of 19th Century Etiquette

"We are taking a trip back in time to explore the elaborate and prejudice intricacies of nineteenth century etiquette. And you know manners may not be exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of perilous situations but let me assure you that some of these codes which govern the social graces during this time period and we are talking specifically here about Europe and America. Here say well. These codes of etiquette can be mind blowing Lee complicated and one false step well. It wasn't just embarrassing. It could potentially mean utter social ruin not to mention these codes of etiquette were specific to gender age and even Marital Status. So you had to keep all of these designations in mind with each and every social interaction you had throughout the day. Many of the rules governing behavior during the nineteenth century can fill a bit overwrought and even a tad ridiculous to us today but at the time they were considered the very fabric and structure of society to even begin to comprehend them ourselves. We of course while we headed straight to the bookshelf for etiquette books of the era. Yes and we are super fortunate to have a whole slew of these types of books special collections at fit. And I look specifically at the following books. I looked at etiquette for ladies which is published by Leeann Blanchard in eighteen thirty nine. I looked at the American gentleman's guide to politeness by Henry. Liu Nets from eighteen fifty nine social etiquette of New York by Abby Buchanan Long Street from eighteen eighty four manners and social usages by Mrs John Sherwood from eighteen eighty seven and manners culture and dress of the best American society by Richard A wells from eighteen. Ninety three okay that was that was a mouthful and that cast is just the very tip of the iceberg in terms of our holdings. We have so so so many more including also ones that are kind of blend of being etiquette and also like a beauty guide as well so right and the great number of these relate directly to the fact that these little books were immensely popular at the time the beginning of the nineteenth century San explosion of not only etiquette books onto the market but also ladies magazines which frequently codified and coached the readers into their finer points of quote unquote proper behavior and in the wake of the French Revolution. The spread of democratic and Republican forms of government really spurred the growth of the middle classes and with all that brand new upward mobility came increased tensions and anxieties over one social standing quotes etiquette is the machinery of society. It is like a wall built up around us to protect us from disagreeable under Brad People. Who were fused? Take the trouble to be civil. Wrote one source from eighteen eighty four so basically anyone who is interested in bettering their station in life. A deft knowledge of etiquette was key to gain acceptance into the world of society proper. You know an an a lapse in this performance of manners and I say performance because it really really was It could be quickly. Chalked up to one's lack of so-called good breeding. And this is the phrase that you see over and over and over again in these manuals good breeding and if one was deemed uncouth or quote unquote. Ill bred that could also make you an undesirable acquaintance at the time because basically anyone who was in your social circle was very much considered a reflection upon yourself yes and this rapid expansion of the middle classes Europe in America during the nineteenth century is a big part of the reason why etiquette books were so popular at the time as we just mentioned so if you weren't necessarily raised in the know you could just buy a book that delineated roles on the proper way to move throughout the world and these books covered all sorts of events and occasions from things. We consider pretty standard today so like table manners wedding etiquette or how to console a bereaved friend but also more than a few topics that we would consider. Well a little niece today. Yes and just a couple of my favorites include how to format a personal letter to the president of the United States. Naturally clearly we've all done right The proper deportment to have when taking one's Harvard exams which I found this especially funny because this is the only university mentioned this etiquette book and I believe at this time. It was only men that could enroll in Harvard. So I guess the etiquette manuals saying go go harvard or go home. I don't know One source I looked at had hilariously titled Section called Lives Shipwrecks. I haven't dove into this quite yet but I remain most intriguing. I will return to that chapter but last but not least is how to deal with quote. Low Bread Women cads slanderers and scandal. Mongers timing. Come on you gotTa love that Punchy Nineteenth Century Language of course there is no way we can possibly cover all of these topics and a single episode of dress so we had narrowed. Today's focus down to what was one of the most interesting aspects of nineteenth century etiquette. And that is the practice of calling and by this. We do not mean placing telephone call because we have to remember that the very first telephone systems were really only commercially. Viable starting in eighteen seventy seven and the adoption for home. Use was rather slow. I have to say According to the US Department of the Interior in one thousand nine hundred only three percent of US homes had their own telephone so that begs the question. Just how did people communicate with each other during the nineteenth century? I mean letter writing. Of course that's a given but there were also this other form of calling these in person visitations which were governed by some of the strictest rules of etiquette but before we even get to the matter of visits and calls. We've I must address the matter of meetings and introductions during the nineteenth century it was rarely considered appropriate for to individuals regardless of their sex to meet without a formal introduction by way of a friend or a relative and even then both parties were supposed to separately agreed to the introduction in advanced unsolicited introductions are bad for both parties and this was stressed by one etiquette. Manual we consulted. Yeah and you might be asked why. Well a formal introduction had the implications that the association between the two parties was going to continue and this was especially true when it came to introductions to women quote great prudence or action must always be used but infinitely more care is necessary as a lady cannot shake off an improper acquaintance with the same facility as a gentleman can do and their character is much easier affected by the apparent contact with worthless and the dissipated out. That's rough the weaker. Fairer sex. The more impressionable right so once. Both parties had agreed to a formal introduction. It was protocol to I. Present not introduced a gentleman to the lady. She in turn was expected to respond with a slight bow. A faint smile and saying his name so the person making the introduction would be like Mr Smith desires to be presented to Miss White Miss White wishes to be acquainted with Mr Smith. Then miss white would bow smile and say Mr Smith and April. This bow was absolutely necessary according to etiquette books which say that unless she bowed gentlemen cannot claim her as an acquaintance. When we say some of these finer points finicky were not lying and right now in my mind so many historical period films are coming into my my mind right and all of that. Formality is making so much more sense. Now because men were to be presented to women and women had to formally accept that social connection so that's between men and women but cast what about introductions between Women Shirley? These were a little bit less complicated. One might think but I mean not really after agreeing to be introduced in the case of two women the younger was to be introduced but not quote unquote presented to the older of the two ladies. If the two women happen to be of similar ages their marital status now came into play and the single eighty would be introduced to them married woman and if two women of the same age and marital status were being introduced the one of lesser social standing would be introduced. I this just sounds I mean. It's

Why It's So Tough To 'Move On'

"My own experience and most of the People. I know people stay in relationships. People stay in some way in inactive discourse with their grief longer than they naturally should they hold on because it is so tremendously difficult to let go. Yeah I found in every relationship. That wasn't gonNA last forever. I think back to every friendship or romantic relationship or job opportunities. I always stayed too long and not because I was. We could dumb or naive or anything else. But because it was human and we cling to what we know what's familiar into what feels like equilibrium and then of course there's the kind of moving on where we have no choice when somebody dies. We don't get to do that. Clinging thing we do Kling. My mom passed. Is You know more than two years ago and you know everybody in. Our family has been in their own way clinging with odd exception. And I know that this is much more complicated than them and make it sound but my dad fell in love with somebody new who is very much like my mother but her own person and he I think after actively being in the state of mourning and caring for my mom for seven years which she was almost entirely at home he had done. I think I think a lot of that grieving. And so he was ready to move on and find a new love and the rest of us have really in our own ways been not reeling exactly but clinging and I know this because several months ago I had the most vivid dream in which my mom was alive again and what was strange about the dream was that I knew that she had died and I kept saying in my head. My mom is dead. Her body would not look like this. It's been two or three months since she died. Her body would be decomposed and then when I woke up and thought about the dream I realized my mom was cremated. If you see what I mean. I was even clinging to the possibility and I remember so vividly Sherwood during the dream saying to myself. Don't say anything to your mom. Don't say anything to anybody else in the dream. Because if I point out that my mom died she will die again. I think this has something to do with Joan diddy and is talking about in this book that I find myself returning to again and again the year of magical thinking which is the searing examination of her grief. Over the death of her spouse when death comes along and announces that you must move on your mind goes back to a place of Childhood in magical thinking and you say to yourself. No no no. If I don't pointed out my mom will still be alive if I don't pointed out. Her body won't have decomposed or have been cremated. Yeah your experiences a really common one. I know this because I wrote about my own dreams after my mom died and especially immediately after she died every now and then. I'll still have one of these kinds of dreams. In those first few years I had dreams that are not at all so unlike yours it would be that I would come upon my mom and she was alive and there would be that sense of astonishment. Wait a minute I thought you said you know. Oh you were here this whole time or the beginning dreams were the most painful the ones in the early days where she would have me kill her so she would be in the dream and she would say you have to kill me and she would hand me a bat and I would have to beat her to death or she would say get in to your truck and run me over and I would have to run her over and murder her in my dreams. I would wake like weeping and sobbing. I mean I could. I was afraid to go to sleep. And your take of it as this magical thinking that in your dreams she still is still alive. My interpretation of my dream life when it came to letting go and moving on and accepting my mother's death was that bond is so deep that I couldn't believe it my deepest consciousness didn't believe that this primal bond of my life was severed and in some ways over and yes. I know that mom continues beyond her life but in some significant way right and so I had to convince myself in my dream life. And what's so interesting is that you had your mother come in order. You still her. Wow I mean it's because that's kind of brutal iteration of this idea that we cling to those who we've lost their deeply embedded in our and our sub conscious and they're going to be there forever their body is gone. The future experiences we have with them are gone but subconsciously they are still present. Yeah so you're right. We cling there is however a difference between being in a job too long or relationship too long and finally deciding to leave and having someone we loved I and being required to move on and those are the letters were going to discuss today. On part one of our two part moving on episodes. How do we move on? After we've lost a loved one to death. How do we move on without them in our lives? How do we carry them with us while also letting them go and one of the most interesting wise people? I know who are writing about this. Today is our guest. Claire Bidwell Smith. She is a licensed therapist specializing in grief. And she's the author of several books about grief and loss. She writes and speaks about grief regularly and offers online grief support. In addition to her private practice in Los Angeles she has a forthcoming book called anxiety. The missing stage of grief which will be out on September twenty fifth and which is amazing. It's great and Claire and I connected several years ago when we both had memoirs coming out and when we wrote a lot about the deaths of our mothers both of her parents died within a short time span of each other. So Claire Bidwell. Smith is joining us from a studio in Boston. We're in Portland Oregon. She's joining us right now. Hi Claire Claire. Hi Guys so tell us a bit about yourself your experience with loss and grief and also about this new book you have. I was fourteen when both of my parents got cancer at the same time. I'm an only child and my mother diagnose eighteen and my father when I was twenty five so I kinda got hit with it all pretty young in life and it was not easy and as I kind of crawled my way out of it. I ended up going back to school a therapist and I was always a writer before that it was my only way of making sense of all of it especially when I was an adolescent going through so much that my peers weren't going through so after it became a therapist I also started writing about grief and loss my own other people's and it was again a way of deeper understanding for others in for myself and my new book. Anxiety missing of grief is born out of all this work I've done. It's been a decade of of working hospice and working in private practice as a grief therapist and one of the predominant symptoms. I've seen has been after a major loss and it's something that hasn't been talked about really very much at all in any books that I could find. It's something I went through after my mother died and something I've seen countless clients

What American voters want from the 2020 candidates

"We've been taking a deeper look at where the candidates stand and on key issues important to voters today we look at immigration. President trump ran on the promise of building a US Mexico border wall and during his presidency. He has worked work to make it harder for many migrants to apply for silom among other things. Some of the other top Democratic candidates are promising to reverse his actions joining joining us to talk about what Democrats are pledging to do a Sima Meta political writer for the La Times. She's an Iowa ahead of the caucuses. Welcome thanks for having me. I WANNA start with the news this week. The Supreme Court allowed a trump administration plan to go forward that could deny green cards to immigrants who need public assistance offence. What's been the reaction from twenty twenty candidates and we've heard a couple of candidates? Speak out about this already. I was at an event with the Mayor Buddha's yesterday Just outside of two moines and he was asked by voters about the specific case and he started quoting scripture. You know saying that you know the strangers was to be welcomed at this is sort of a core tenant of his faith And he really spoke about how this was sort of. Unconscionable we've also heard Elizabeth Warren. She tweeted about this. And we're probably I mean if you look at what the candidates have said about immigration and about about the trump administration's policy. This is an area where you're going to see a lot of agreement. I mean there's not a lot of daylight in other immigration policy their differences here and there but in terms of sort of cutting down access access. you know for people who are in the country illegally who are seeking a documentation. This is an area where you're going to see broad agreement among the Democratic candidates. Let's talk about some of those other there Big Questions on immigration. What our candidates saying about president trump's push to build a wall along the US border They're already some structures that are up. WHAT WOULD DEMOCRATS CRAT STU I most of them are completely against the wall? Some of them have the if you look at some of them have in some of the members who have been in the Senate for for example in the passive occasionally voted for uh-huh border funding Some earlier this year. I'm sorry late last year. When there was discussion about Daca young people were brought into this country illegally? When they're very young Some of them said that there they were amenable to some compromise. Like if you grant these young people citizenship might do a little bit of border funding But largely I mean they're pretty much in lockstep up in opposing the president's policies. They talk about several of them. Senator Klobuchar they talk about you. On the first hundred days using any type of executive action they could to undo Many of the president's policies the areas where you see some distinction is whether you know crossing the border illegally whether it should remain a crime or whether that'd be a civil we'll offense for example send closer she would keep it a crime other people like Bernie Sanders would decriminalize that decriminalizing illegal border crossings. That's something the thing that former vice president Joe Biden does not support here. He is at debate this summer. We're in a circumstance where if in fact you say you can just crossed the border. What do you say to all those people around the world who in fact want the same thing to come United States and make their case meant they don't that they have? I have to wait. Line the fact of the matter is you should be able to. If you cross the border illegally you should be able to be sent back. It's a crime this is an interesting topic in that It's been shown that Americans do want some sort of reform They perhaps wants some. I'm sort of a change at the border crossings. But exactly what they want. is still a question whether these candidates really address what the public wants. Well I think The former vice vice president is really an interesting spot because he's faced a lot of criticism from activists in throughout this campaign because during he was part of the Obama administration deportations rose was to record levels. During the Obama Administration. Someone's activists called President Obama the reporter and chief so he's as the live scrutiny on on the campaign trail. I mean I think you're exactly right. I mean if there's anything that people in both parties agree on it's that the immigration system is incredibly broken on the way it currently exists. They obviously differ very much in how they would fix exit. I WanNa talk to you about its immigration and customs enforcement which of course is responsible for deportations Bernie Sanders has called for the breaking up of Ice Elizabeth. Warren has called for the remaking of ice. How big of an issue is this? What our candidates saying well? This is an area where you actually can see some differences among the candidates in the field. I was at Bernie Sanders. There's rally on Saturday in the Ames and he was with Alexandria causing Cortez and she when she brought this up as a huge point in this was very very popular with the crowd that wants to. Do you have children in cages at the border once you have babies being from their mother's arms at the border that there is no reforming ice that needs to be abolished Other candidates take a more measured approach for example former South then mayor He sort of leans on his Mackenzie background here and that he wants to study it figure out what to do with ice. But he doesn't. He's not calling for abolishing it warrants and other ones so this is an area whether it's a little bit of daylight between the candidates another Issue that many Democrats are bringing up is increasing aid to Central American countries WHERE MIGRANTS OF COURSE COMING FROM HERE Senator Warren in September debate? Why do we have a crisis at the border in no small part because we have withdrawn help from the people in Central America who are suffering? We need to restore that help. We need to help establish a reestablish the rule of law so that people people don't feel like they have to flee for their lives. A number of candidates are also promising to protect so called dreamers of those are people who are brought to the country illegally illegally as children here Senator Bernie Sanders at a San Diego rally in December we will restore the legal status to the one point date million young people and their parents eligible for the Baka program. What if some of the other candidates Democratic candidates said set about DACA? Buddha judge coach are some of those others and this is an area where there's broad agreement that something has to be done for these these young people maybe all talk about this being one of their the top priorities tip. You know if they're elected to do this as soon as they get into office to take steps to protect these people Some of them also talk about expanding for example sanders who you just played. He would expand it to their your parents Kluber Sherwood raise the age for for which people were eligible which would also increase the number of people who could apply. Yeah you know when we talk about about This issue of immigration were often talking about coastal areas but former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete. Buddha judge has spoken about what immigration can do for rural rule areas. Let's listen heart of my plan for revitalizing. The economies of Rural America includes community renewal visas that would allow cities towns and counties. That are hurting not only jobs for population to embrace immigration as we have in my city you know the only reason that south bend is growing right now after years. Years of shrinking is immigration That's an interesting take have have other candidates talked about this about spurring. The economies and other parts of the country intrigue through immigration former Vice President Biden. He's proposed allowing local governments to petition for new immigration visas to support economic growth. If there aren't enough local workers to jobs. I'm just sort of a new proposal. We're hearing this cycle. I don't think we've heard before and it's interesting. I mean being in Iowa I was obviously an incredibly homogenous state. It's a very. It's more than ninety percent white but there's certain pockets of you know when you get outside of the The Metro areas there these rural areas where young people are leaving and they need workers and you see some areas that have you know. have an increase in Latino workers. I think it started out long ago with the slaughterhouses etc.. But it's certainly expanded since then. I'm so I think it's an interesting area where people are talking about. You know where they're just simply aren't enough American workers I to fill the needs of a community. You're in Iowa as you as you just mentioned Has that been a topic of conversation about those immigrant populations in Iowa how they make up Iowa and maybe some of the candidates are trying to reach them. I mean immigration has come up on the campaign trail but it hasn't come up as much as some other issues is just because I think because there is such broad agreement among the Democratic candidates among the field About these proposals about what. The right thing is to deal with. People who are in the country illegally On the Republican side which have covered here in Pascal's it hasn't been much more of a flashpoint terms of what should happen to them. We talked about this a little bit but presidents on on both parties have failed to tackle comprehensive immigration reform for years. I mean this has been an issue if a Democrat is elected. What do you think the chances are that? They'll actually have success. I think it would depend on the makeup of the Senate. I mean there are some policy areas. Where if you look at the polling? There's pretty broad agreement among among Americans about what should happen in terms of you know for people who have been in this country for decades who have not committed crimes who have worked who paid into the system There's question about you should do they. They become citizens or to become legal residents but there is sort of agreement that you know we're not kicking out eleven million people. The question is once we we saw this Under George W Bush how the President Obama once it gets caught up in Congress and the Senate. It's it it just keeps stalling. Even when there does seem to be a chance of reaching agreement

Congress isn't going to let Facebook's cryptocurrency happen without a fight

"Week. We're talking to marketplace reporters about what to expect from tech in the year ahead regulation is a big part of that conversation Shen and today we're going to chat about cryptocurrencies specifically libra the digital payments system in cryptocurrency proposed by facebook earlier this year. It seemed like it might be dead on arrival considering all the backlash but lawmakers have not forgotten about it. There are a few bills being considered by Congress that could have an an impact on Lebron's future including who might regulate it. Nancy Marshall Genzer reports on policy from marketplace's Washington DC bureau. I asked her to tell me about the bills that have been proposed. Here's one molly see if you can figure out what this bill would do. It's called keep big tack out of Finance. It's very very subtle would prohibit large platforms like facebook from becoming charter licensed or registered as a US financial institution There's there's another bill called. Stable coins are securities act. And this bill says that stable coins which are coins like libra pegged to a basket. Ask It of something that is considered stable so these coins are not supposed to fluctuate so securities being stocks and bonds. This bill says hey libra All the laws that apply to stocks and bonds are going to apply to you right so then just to clarify that that would put like the SEC in charge of regulating regulating something like libra. And take it away from being a fanatic purely financial product Sherwood the SE and possibly other government regulators. And of course the Fed has already said. Hey we're going to be regulating you libra and then the last one is on Privacy trying to Hit the executives of facebook because it says the issuers of stable coins would not be able to raise money on. US capital markets if they were paid with stable coin or if they worked with someone who is affiliated when the stable going so that would also be a blow to facebook. It wouldn't be able to raise money me in. US Capital Markets Sort of broadly. Around these regulatory efforts and others you know just returning to the idea of keeping being big tech out of finance that ship has sailed. It seems like we're really seeing a big tech companies already. Attempting to become financial institutions and digital currencies are just part of that. I wonder how you see regulation in two thousand twenty kind of scrambling to catch up with text ambitions around finance and banking and payments and cryptocurrencies. I think you're absolutely right. I mean the Horse already left that barn and I think that libra is such a bold. Step that that's kind of where they're planting their flag and saying look. You really have to slow down here facebook so there are three the bills on the table. Maybe more coming. Do you think any of those existing Measures are likely to pass. They'll probably pass the house The big question is whether they would pass the Senate. Of course. The House controlled by Democrats which attend to be a little bit. More leery of these types of things The Senate a little more interest industry-friendly three friendly controlled by Republicans So right now there are no cosponsors in the Senate for any of those house bills that I just listed it. That seems very interesting. That Republicans might be well. One argument that Mark Zuckerberg has made to and I wonder what you just think about. This in general is on On Capitol Hill. He's fond of saying things like if we don't do some version of libra China will do you like. Do you have the sense that that's an argument. That's working on the Senate it could be the you know both Republicans and Democrats are wanting to regulate facebook A little bit more but I think you know. Generally Democrats are more pro regulation than Republicans I think it would be more a matter of Republicans kind of shying away from regulation

Adina Hoffman: Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures

"I'm Michael Silver Blah this bookworm arm and today I'm very pleased to have as my guest. Adina Hoffman the Dina has written a life of the great almost mind boggling screenwriter Ben. Hecht the book has the Subtitle Fighting Words moving pictures this Ben Hecht had his. Oh would you say finger in so many tries He starts out now having moved with his family to the mid West as soon as he graduates from high school. He realizes this is. The college is not for him and he high tails it to Chicago where he becomes a very well-known newspaper this paper Man Song well known that his adventures in the newspaper business but come perhaps the most is famous play ever to be written about newspapers that he wrote with Charles MacArthur. Yes called the front page. The the front page becomes his girl Friday with cary grant and Rosalind Russell and thereby hangs a tale every the time Ben Hecht turns around. There's a revision of something. He's done a new who've version of it by someone else that he in turn revise right even his own memoirs has multiple versions of what happened to him in his own life life. He's kind of astonishing. This came from the days when face at a writer wrote right. These were people who wrote all the time there's also literary life that Hecht has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of the big city You know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago Renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world. People like Carl Sandberg. who was a really good friend of Heck's you know he was also a reporter and they were sort of Newspaperman by day and then by night they were writing their poems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like Sherwood Anderson Jason and he was also publishing in the little review which is unbelievable magazine? Push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's ulysses and they felt. What was her name? Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Heck was every bit as much a member of of the little review says dream straight. And he's there on almost every single issue. He was a kind of a pet of hers. He was sort of in love with her. She was unfortunately Very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian was not interested in in that way but she loved him and she published him. Ben Has a great fiction writer. I mean he was. He fancied himself self novelist But he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing. These very heavy breathing stories for Margaret Anderson. He was also writing he. He was whipping off these commercials stories for Lincoln at the smart set. HMO MINKIN was one of his heroes. Mencken was a cynic cynic and a sophisticated and he had every bit of hostility toward the dumb aspects of American culture. He was trying to make America smart op. He wrote fascinating essays sason books on the American language as opposed to British. We don't get an American writer per se until until Mark Twain who's writing the Mississippi River. Talk that he learned when he was a boatman. Well by the time you've got the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got prohibition you've got flappers you've got an American language wood jr that was invented here and Hecht loved. -actly yeah and I think for me. That was one of the wonderful things about spending time with him. I was reading. This book was spending time with his language. I mean whatever you WANNA say about. Whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs graphs and just terrific wit on top of it and he and Macarthur wrote the front page. which was kind of Valentine to that newspaper World of Chicago? You go where they've both been cub reporters you see. He comes in to the newspaper office. Writing these things. In Extreme Telegraphy Telegraphy as as you quote them right they are made of twenty three delight phrases. He's putting them together hurling them together and eventually he's going to have some fame as the newspaper Komo's rining calms every every day made up of just what he heard some Hobo say right or what some very wealthy people were saying in a casino no to be a writer then will start out as journalists. That's where Hemingway starts. He proposed this idea of. But this daily column that you've mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces they're just little snippets and there's a sense that the news is not just test the news of the grant headline it's also all these sort of marginal lives and people. You know the guy who runs the laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients. There's a way in which he's tossing this stuff off in a very casual way reading them daily. They're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition. That just is not the effective whereas these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and sympathetic. You feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago In a way they kind of anticipate the work of later colonists people like beat Hamill and Jimmy Breslin. Who would become more famous in a way for doing doing that? who may also by now have been forgotten but act. was doing that early on. I'm talking to Adina Hoffman about. Don't her book Ben. Hecht its subtitle fighting. Words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series series published by Yale University. Press you mention that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent Jonathan head so why Ben Hair. Well IT'S A. It's the question that I get all the time. And it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before before I knew Ben Hecht if you grow up watching American movies. He's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so and I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but it was only when I became more conscious conscious and started to read about film history I actually worked as a film critic throughout most of the ninety s Then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child trial of the century. And I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know. Pauline Kale called him the greatest American screenwriter Gianluca Dard said he invented eighty percent percent. Of what is used in Hollywood movies today called him a genius and all of that is true but the fact is that for heck the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually may be one of the smaller pieces pieces of it in that memoir is full of all these other lives that we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes dude but I also was drawn to heck in terms of his relationship to Jewish things. And here's a place where he basically an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there. He's been in Chicago. He knows the woman. Editing the little review he knows call Sandberg. He knows Sherwood Anderson he moves to New York becomes friends with Herman Mankiewicz Herman Mankiewicz and also the roundtable tape Dorothy Parker and Benchley and S J Perelman and the Algonquin New Yorker Gang. He he moves to Los Angeles. He does what's so many do he has nothing but contempt damned for the people who started the motion picture industry. You say that you're interested in Hicks. Judaism with those were hits Jews. He didn't like them. There are a lot of Jews in heck's life he was actually born on the lower east side and he spent the first few years of his life. There and I don't actually think that that's Unimportant I mean. He grew up in Racine Wisconsin. which is this pastoral American American place etc but there is a way in which those tenements were in him in a very deep

Canadian Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer argues climate plan will bring about ‘technological revolution’

"This is shameful. But of course, this is not only in It Canada. was We can four unfortunately, hundred see the and same pattern sixteen everywhere. days And after I wonder Andrew share promised is it possible? a conservative Or climate will there plan. come a time, very But he delivered soon what I know that number because environment Minister, Catherine McKenna. Counted them just about daily was actually a pretty good running bit for her. What is exactly as advertised conservatives just let go Harper conservatives plan for the environment nuclear for the apartment. Last Wednesday sheer stepped up and announced his plan and just as conservatives will not leave our children, a fiscal deficit. We will also not leave them on environmental deficit. That's not my job to tell you, if that plan is good or not. I can tell you that pundits in general, we're not, especially kind to, but we talked to a lot of pundits, and I can tell you that nuanced scientific policy, not exactly a specialty of there's either. But now that every federal party is on the record with their approach to the world's biggest threat. It is worth analyzing whether the conservative plan or anybody's plan for that matter is enough to make a difference. Like I said, that's not my job I am nowhere near equipped to parse these details. A neither probably are you, but I do know someone who is. Jordan. He throwing 'em. This is the big story. Katherine heyhoe. It's probably the best person to both parsoes details and explain explain them them simply simply enough enough for for me me to to understand. understand. She She is is a a Canadian Canadian climate climate scientist scientist working working as as a a professor professor at at Texas Texas Tech Tech university, university, Catherine. Catherine. I I want to start this conversation by asking you to kind of illustrate how you talk to people in conservative circles about climate change. And I know there was a particular incident. A couple of weeks ago, the kind of made some headlines. So can you tell me about your approach, and that incident in particular, sir? So a thermometer, isn't blue or red or even green. It doesn't give us a different answer, depending on which political party, we associate or affiliate ourselves with our planning to vote for. And when we look at the science, the science is very clear. Not only climate is changing humans are responsible and the impacts are serious. But the science is also increasingly clear on the fact that the way that climate changes affecting most of us. Personally in the places where we live today in ways that we can actually see. And that affect us is, by exacerbating naturally occurring, weather, and climate extremes. So just as an example, we're seeing that heat waves, like we saw last summer are becoming more frequent and much more severe. We're seeing that heavy rain events, which we've been experiencing across the country, the last few years have become a lot more frequent and also a lot more severe. We're seeing that wildfires are burning greater area because we have hotter and drier conditions. And of course, we see that sea level rise is threatening our coasts and permafrost in the Arctic is melting faster and faster every new study that they publish. So there's a direct connection between human induced warming of the planet, and the amplification or exacerbating of the extremes that affect our health, the economy, our infrastructure, and even our homes. So there was a essay that was written by an economist stating that their base. Weekly was no link between human induced climate change and extremes. And that piece, was put on Twitter by Lisa rate and by Andrew Scheer. So I replied to Lisa. And I said, that's really not true. No hurricanes are not increasing in number. We know that in. No scientists have said that they are. But, for example, they're getting stronger and bigger and slower. And they've a lot more rainfall associated with them. And there's all the other teaches in extremes that we've seen before. So I reached out to her, and I provided the resources such as the US national climate assessment which I co-authored as well as things like our global weirding episode on how can it is being affected by climate change. And she responded, very positively. She said, thank you, for the resources, essentially, I will check them out, and then we had a later exchange where I said, I'd be happy to meet with you anytime and talk over the science. And she said that would be great. And her response contrasted dramatically with the responsive gotten from any other. Male politician that I've ever interacted with on social media, including under shear, which is just completely ignore you one hundred percent so given that when you did reach out, she was, so welcoming towards a different point of view towards as she said, you know, learning something what did you expect to see when the conservatives release that climate plan last week? Well as far as I know she was not a major architect of the plan. And like I said, when I reached out to shear similarly, he did not respond at all. So I wasn't sure what to expect. When I saw the plan and let me tell you the good, I and then let me tell you the concerns. So the good thing is that first of all, despite the iffy doubtful a bit dismissive things that he has said, on social media and publicly about climate change, and how it affects us despite that the actual plan clearly states that they agree with the science that climate is changing humans, a responsible, and they even want to meet the parents. Agreement target. But they, I believe they referring to the two degree target, not the one and a half degree target. So that's that's good. The fact for sure. Yes. And that's the way it should be. Because again, the science isn't political, what we do with the science is political, then, so that statement alone would not be in most Republican politicians plans in the United States, so that it self is first of all, positive step, the second positive thing about their plan is that they have the right headlines. So they talk specifically about all the different sectors. And Canada are emissions come from. They talk about adept Haitian and resilience. They talk about indigenous peoples. They have the headlines, they have the topics that we need to address. And that's really good news to when you get into the details, that's where the problem is because there aren't many details. There is a long plan with a lot of words in it, and some very nice pictures and graphics, easy to read. But there isn't a lot of detail. How exactly are they going to put a cap on industry? What does that cap gonna look like? How is this plan going to actually reduce our emissions? There's no estimate of that. So how do you know if you're going to meet the Paris agreement if you don't even know how your plan is going to reduce emissions? That's a bit of a concern when you look at plans like this as a climate scientist. What are you looking for? Well, the climate system doesn't care how we cut our missions. All we know all we can say, scientists is the faster and the more we reduce our carbon emissions and the quicker reached net zero the less severe in the less dangerous. The impacts will be on us in Canada as wells and others around the world. So from a scientific perspective, the more we reduce the faster. We do that the better now as a human. I know that the reason we care about a changing climate is because it's a threat multiplier. So it takes the issues that we already struggle with today. Whether it's health issues economic issues issues of. National security, infrastructure, and more. The exacerbates them are makes them worse. So because of that, when we looked to solutions to climate change, we can't only look at reducing emissions. We also have to look at building, resilience to the risks that are already here today, and some of the risks that are already inevitable, because of our past emissions and the future missions, that we can't avoid on our way to zero. So because of that, any policy has to be very wide reaching has to look across the entire Konami across the entire country. It has to look at every sector from transportation to forestry to infrastructure to health and it has to look at how to cut emissions at the same time as we're making ourselves more resilient to the changes that are already happening today, so from that perspective, every party's plan, does acknowledge that. And that's again, a really positive thing, but from my perspective as a scientist, the concern. -servative plan not having any specific targets. Not having any specific numbers. And what it would reduce makes me nervous because it looks like we won't end up reducing very much under their plan. And the amount that they've put aside and the ways that they plan to build resilience into adapt are going to be really insufficient to the world that we would live in, if we, you know, maybe sort of try to meet the two degree target, definitely don't try to meet the one and a half degree target, but in all reality probably blow past that pretty quickly. Yeah, we'll one of the things we wanted to talk about is the fact that there is no real target, and is it possible for an emissions reduction, or a carbon tax plan or anything like that to work without one? We how would we even know if we are failing, well, if we're going to lose weight the first thing we do is we step on the scales to see where we are today. And in the second thing, we do is, we set a target if we don't have at target. We don't have anything to. Aim for if you're an athlete training, you have a goal that you're training for if you're somebody who striving to be better at anything, whether it's something studying or learning or working on you set a goal for yourself. That's just how we as human beings operate. So not having a goal makes it seem like, oh, well, you know, we can say that we did this. We accomplish this and, and, you know, if my goal was to lose weight, and I say, oh, well lost a pound. I accomplish my goal. Yeah. But I'm still way above where I actually should be. So that, that's why I'm concerned is that there's again there's a lot of pages. There's a lot of words. There's the right titles, for sure. But we have to get serious about this, and to be serious, you need a goal, and that goal has to actually reflect reality, not just sort of pie in the sky Sherwood can meet the Paris target. We have to look at, well, what do we actually have to do to meet the Paris target and can we do it? And one of my concerns is the fact that there's a lot of were of language around incentivizing business to develop new green technology. But what they totally avoid is any mention of the fact that fossil fuels are heavily and massively subsidised in Canada, in the United States and around the world in the US fossil fuel subsidies, according to the International Monetary Fund, which just estimated these this year fossil, fuel subsidies in the US alone are greater than the Pentagon's budget. Really? Yes globally. They are subsidized per second to the tune of somewhere around. Hundred seventy thousand US dollars per second. And so if we leave these massive market, distorting subsidies on our fossil fuels then how can you really incentivize development of new green technologies to trying to roll a boulder up a hill? So dealing with these either through a price on carbon or through through actively removing the tax breaks in the subsidies and charging them for the climate impacts in the damages that the extraction processing and burning causes in less. You do that. It isn't a level playing field. And if you don't have a level playing field pretty much every communist in the world agrees that you're not gonna get the tech development at the pace that we need. We'll let me ask you then about how the other is compare how have the liberals done would you give them a passer fail as somebody who watches this closely? Okay question. It's so funny because of course in Canada, the liberals are actually, the centrist party, right? I mean, you think liberals kind of at the left end of the spectrum down there. Yes. Yes. And, and so the liberals are trying to walk the fence between taking significant and meaningful steps to cut carbon, which a nationwide carbon tax certainly is. But at the same time they're trying to be very pragmatic and recognize that we need the money to actually do some of the stuff because we don't want to just take everybody's tax revenues and use that ourselves. And because we need that money, and because we have to have they'll coal country onboard, which includes L, Berta and B C. That's why we have to have the pipeline and we're going to actually use the revenues from the pipeline for good to accomplish our long term goals. So one day they announced the climate emergency, and then the next day out the approval of the pipeline. And what does that mean? It means that they are standing on the top of very narrow. Fence getting shot at from both sides will. Greta Thurn Berg, the young climate activists tweeted last week right after Trudeau's government approved ATM X pipeline again that quote one second, they declare climate emergency, and the next second, they say yes to expand a pipeline.

"Wb you are meghna jacker bardy it's here and now by the end of the week texas governor greg abbott plans to have hosted three round table discussions in response to last friday's school shooting in the city of santa fe today's meeting will focus on gun regulation and mental health and it will include representatives from the gun control group texas gun sense and the texas state rifle association which is affiliated with the national rifle association yesterday's meeting looked at school and community safety most shell from member station k ut in austin was there and has this report so i'm standing outside of the capitol about to go inside and a report on the round table but before i do that i got to go through a metal detector these were installed with the capital in twenty ten after a man fired off a gun on the front steps no one was hurt that made lawmakers went ahead security since the santa fe shooting that's what many have talked about doing it schools so governor abbot invited public safety in school officials to discuss it tuesday whether you are a republican or democrat whether you are pro don or are blaming more gun regulations the reality is that we all want guns out of the hands of those who would try to murder our children the introduction to reporters then we were ushered from the room the meeting itself happened in private the idea was that it would help participants speak freely salaam acres get the best information to create new safety policy but there's something else at play here says mark jones a political scientist at rice university he says these roundtables allow abbott and other state leaders to frame the gun debate in texas it also is good from a pr perspective and that it looks good for the governor to be doing this and it provides a catharsis for many people allows them to voice their concerns and the problems they see one thing jones does not expect to come out of the process is stricter gun control regulations every about two and a half hours reporters were let back into the meeting room to hear from the governor about how it went what i wanna do is to sherwood usually ideas that were generated today he listed about twenty different proposals some you may have heard of restricting access points into schools more funding for program that trains teachers to carry guns others seem new statewide monitoring students social media mandating parental training to reduce school shootings.
