After Fatal Floods, Germans Look at How Climate Change Contributed

"To germany now where crews are cleaning up after the worst floods the region has seen nearly six decades more than one hundred sixty people have died. The damage amounts to billions of dollars. Now germans are asking what role climate change may be playing and how to keep this from happening again. Npr's rob schmitz has been out surveying the destruction. He joins us from the flood. Region near bonn. Hey rob emyr lewis. So i know you have been out. In one of the worst hit towns. You spent yesterday talking to people there. What are they saying about how this happened. Yes spoke to several yesterday. In the town of knowing of isla people who had suffered incredible damage to their homes. Dozens of people in this town died in this disaster and the one thing everyone was talking about was how unnatural all of the seem. The rain was nothing like anyone had ever seen. Before the way the tiny creek that runs through this town the are filled up from below a foot deep to twenty five feet deep in a matter of a few hours as water rushed down into this valley as spoke to resident martin larsen about this and he thought climate change was definitely a part of this but he also listed other culprits behind the severity of the flooding. Here's what he said. This type of flooding is not normal. This type of rain is not normal. The consequences of not for the main thing is probably infrastructure. Now you've probably been building everywhere where we hear you asphalted. Everything's paved the river straight. Yeah it's not bending back and forth. It's been manipulated by man throughout the years. It's nice and and shallow and it's just cozy but when it comes high water it's a germany is europe's most populous country. It's about the size of new mexico but it has more than eighty million people in that area so its population is fairly dense and there are so many towns like the one i visited yesterday that are built along waterways that are highly engineered and urban management to prevent these extreme weather events from causing so much damage is something that german officials will likely start analyzing more closely in the aftermath of this tragedy.

'Just As I Am': Cicely Tyson Reflects On Her Long Career

"Only the legend. Actress Sicily Tyson During a career spanning six decades, she's brought to life iconic roles in theater, film and television, from sounder to the autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, two routes to how to get away with murder roles that have offered previously unseen images of the sweep and humanity of black life. Now. In a new memoir, she finally finally sets forth her improbable journey from the typing pool at the Red Cross to award winning actor and icon of style. Her book is called Just as I Am and Sicily. Tyson is here with us to tell us more about Cicely Tyson. Miss Tyson. Welcome. It's such an honor to have you with us. Thank you. No. Honestly, if someone were to write the story of your life as a novel, I don't think people would believe it. I mean, you started modeling at the age of 30 when most models air hanging up their stilettos. You got your first starring role when you were nearly 50. I mean crazy. That's life. At least mine. Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember. It's always details. It is amazing, but they was they so impacted my life at the time. Uh, they they affected me in a way that I could not forget those memories and my sister and I sit down sometimes and salivate over them the potatoes and you said her Mac and she's had no equal No one No one and she made a chicken soup that will make you Licked a hair out of your nostrils. Hmm. So So you write about how you kind of fell into acting after a modeling career that just improbable, moderate wing career like you learned literally. Um, a zoo. We said in the typing pool of the Red Cross, and you'd kind of go to the department stores on the kind of the late, Great Lord, Take your lunch hour. That wasn't my favorite place, sadly, just closing its doors. When did you decide that acting? Was your calling? What was the thing that made you say? This is what I have to do. It happened. We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not. I tell you, Uh, I was so started to be a few minutes to catch my breath in order. To question What is this man thought? That we were human. You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures. There were certain issues I have to adjust. And I thought I would use like a rare as why flat floor and you know we can't let you go without talking about Miles Davis. Oh, Yeah, well, you can't because she was part of my life. What do you think you learned from that? I mean, you write about the fact that you all were like the it couple at the time. I mean, you were one of the couples in me. He's a jazz legend. You are a legend in your field. On yet, you know, he had some issues as we as we all know, I mean, he had a serious drug problem and Some other sort of issues. Demons that he was dealing with. What do you think you learned from that relationship? I wish people knew the Miles Davis that I knew. Really because to you can walk into a bookstore and you sing dreams of books about Miles Davis and few people who wrote the books. Yeah. Not only was she feeling they talented, he was brilliantly sensitive, and that is the Miles Davis that people know. I don't know that he was trying to Okay? You have a very forgiving spirit. Well, Isn't that what we're supposed to do? Forgive each other, huh? We don't keep riding a rough truck over a sensitive so you can't do that. People are looking for help. And you look and you see them And you know that they need help. Okay, and you can help them. At least I can. I can always speak myself. Okay on. So what? I realized that he was in deep trouble on that he wanted he wants. He said I don't want to do that anymore. Okay. Uh, So when somebody says that to you And they're asking for help at this. I would try to help them. Before we let you go, Miss Tyson. We have only just scratched the surface of your remarkable life. And I am so honored to have had this time to spend with you. But before I let you go, do you have some advice for younger artists are those just Beginning their careers after you've done so much and seeing so much and been through so much Do you have any advice that you would share Death? Stick with it? Just stick for that. There's a reason why there's always a reason why you keep going in the direction you chose to go. And that is the legend. Sicily Taison, her new book, Just as I am is out Tuesday. Cicely Tyson. Thank you so much for speaking with us. It isn't Even honor by appreciate so much time. Thank you.

We're here each and every week for your same time talking to the biggest names in sports. I'm Jason Kelly with Mike Lynch and Michael Bar. Let's get right back to our conversation with Gary Bettman, commissioner of the NHL, So Gary, you have mentioned that roughly 50% Of revenue comes from fans in the building's ticket sales concessions I would imagine is all lumped into that merchandise, etcetera. So as you look at sort of the revenue pie going forward, some of the changes that you've made This is a league that during your long tenure dating back to the mid nineties 10 times the revenue has increased by most estimates, probably a little more than that. By this moment, What does this Topsy turvy world that we've been talking about do in terms of the mix going forward revenue growth. How do you look at this from a pure kind of revenue? Business perspective in terms of what this may set you back? That's a great question. So when I took over in 1993, I think revenues were around $400 million on Bond 1920 season. Our projections and we were on track until the middle of March. Wouldn't be about $5 billion, and so we've had great growth has been growth in hockey, both at our level and at the grassroots level in terms of participation, and we continue to see prospects for growth. Whether it's social media, digital platforms or even traditional media. The interest in our game continues to grow. And I think our revenues will continue to grow The sand. Bass has also been enhanced by the addition of the franchise recently in Las Vegas. We have another one coming in Seattle's and started 21 22 season, and that makes our game in our footprint that our presence in terms of hockey overall Even greater. So what we're dealing with right now is I think a short term phenomenon, although I think people would quarrel with the year being short term, but the point is, we're gonna get through this at some point and I think our business will come out of it stronger and will continue to grow. Well, Commissioner Bettman. You went from a brilliant questions now, my silly, stupid question. And I'm just gonna bluntly say it, and I'll tell you why I'm asking, Do you Miss Peter Puck? Yeah, I want to explain to people what Peter Puck was. It explained the game way back in the early seventies to people who may not have known what I get was all about, but I'm wondering if There will never be a day where the NHL in other sports have tried it also to broadcast to Children to explain the game. What hockey is all about? It's a great question, and Peter Pocket had his day and had in Simon was great, but I think for the most part are fans and sports fans in general. Don't need that in the middle of the game there enough. Ways to get any information you want. We have also absolute tools and assets and websites and APS that can teach you more about the game. But with your question leads to is, you know people remember the Fox puck in the mid nineties, which was ahead of its time It was primitive than Although it was that technology that led to the insertions for the 1st 10 line in football, the one thing that I'm fascinated about, and it was a really good move with the Nickelodeon NFL broadcast, which was particularly attracted to kids, and I think that's something that all sports can take A look at. Area because of covert obviously have had to cancel the winter Classic in the stadium serious but you're gonna have two games out in Lake Tahoe, and that fascinates me A because I'm interested in the logistics be, the Bruins will be playing the Flyers. And see. Will it be a league wide revenue sharing event? First of all, we're excited to do it because losing the outdoor games, which is been a spectacular for us. Taking the game back to its roots, playing outside and playing in front of crowds there or much, much larger than our players who used to playing in front of my men. We've had games with over 100,000 people. In the snow is great. So we wanted to at least have a Neve ent for television where our fans could see something special in the season in the absence of the outdoor games, the Winter Classic where he's if even the All Star game and that was They're still behind that. You see the lake. You see the mountains. You see the snow. It's a beautiful setting, and we think it will make for great telecast and we don't want players will have fun with it. I'm a revenue standpoint. There No fans. There's this is not a revenue producer. This is again one of these things that creates revenue attention and gives us the ability.

D. receiver for Berkeley took place at three forty AM Saturday it's in the two thousand block of Madison nav is unknown whether any property was taken they with the burglary took place just hours before president trump began the tweeting about comings and his district talk about timing here's comings and the course of the present calling to attention the road in problem the crime problem with the violence problem here it is owned district a larger coming home burglarized that all was not fared well it was a fire a couple of years ago there yes and that the the tenant because it coming doesn't live there of the ten it wasn't home at the time and now I don't know if it's the same turn in or not but the home was burglarized but I would think Frank that if the home was burglarized it would have been some indication that no one was injured no one was hurt it appears that the home was vacant at the time well when you're talking about a burglary I mean there was no indication in the reports that I have seen that anybody was home or anybody was hurt so I would I would assume that the end of burglary on the you can you can even when people are home sometimes people can get into a home and take what they want and then it's gone with that without anybody even knowing it and that's why they have alarms and all sorts of stuff you would think you're living in west Baltimore I would be again a must have for your home some kind of either alarm or dog or perhaps even a farm in the home speaker Pelosi galore suggesting yesterday the president trump wants to be little her hometown has right in first and then you should consult with his son in law Jared Kushner whom she called the slum lord it is on folks the speaker who grew up in Baltimore whose father and brother were mayors of all more us decades ago say this city is a great source of pride you so proud of it she left he left and is now living on the left coast so please for me the crocodile tears from Baltimore speaker whoever thought that the twenty twenty presidential campaign was going to see Baltimore's ground zero but it's a heavy and it won't leave would say keeps coming up the present mentioning Baltimore again last night and is Raleigh it's it's about it we have some of the highlights of that coming up right after the five thirty news but it's making national news we have governor Hogan L. on the he's national governors association the head so he's now making this store he's being grew older interviewed about Baltimore we've got coming to by the way is he's called for the whole wall grants have you seen much your comment of anything from a larger Cummings of late your he's okay what he's got the gavel and is an and he's trying to you know browbeat or pound Kevin mac lean and and and other witnesses before his a committee but its oversight committee but now in their cameras and microphones would love to have an interview with congressman Cummings season order refill see if he if if if trump is actually got gotten comings and and the position right now where any future oversight committee hearing where he'll go off you know and and and on and it's you know start yelling and screaming going in a lucky lucky did on a couple of different occasions there is going to come off like an angry person because here before I don't think people when they watch these hearings if they did it all even took into consideration comings and who he was and where he was from and what have you except for you know people who follow the news well now you know there he's he's name is you know going to be well known more knowing that it was before and he comes off real angry it it but you know people are going to say look yeah this guy he's not all there well you're right and we get a live look a lot of that I think is selective outrage or faux outrage I think it's it's for the cameras he knows he's on C. span he knows he's going to make news so this he gets all hot and bothered and he's lecturing and as a set fire and brimstone over the children of the border while we get treated much better than many of the children in in west Baltimore again there's no the versatile chance they're going to be shot and killed wall there crossing the border and or in get custody of ice detention facility yet if you have a child in west Baltimore you know there is at least a are you pretty good possibility that could happen so I think some of it is certainly rehearsed practiced and order yeah this is I I again I know it's cynical would follow whatever it is whatever it is whether it's you know fake or whether you know it's it's for real I think you you're going to see him kind of walking in fact because he doesn't want to be seen as the heavy guy hi amazing Kreskin we just have him on the the error of the of the day he is back in town for one night only Saturday September the twenty first at eight P.
