Sit, Listen and Dismantle
"First of all can like. I do every single time that I chat with fantastic folks like you. Thank you for your time. That is the one thing that you cannot get back and it is extremely valuable so thank you so much for taking some time out with us today. Thank you for taking the time and inviting me. The second thing I'd like to do is to ask you to tell us about yourself now when I say that what I mean is feel free to go all the way back to win it all started or you can start more current day. Tell us about sure. Well I guess going back to. When it all started I grew up in the nineteen sixties and was very much a part of all of the various political movements of that time and student movement in the Civil Rights Movement. I worked in the south as a civil rights worker in Selma and Montgomery in southern Alabama and south Georgia and then became very involved in social conflict and was actually at what you can think of as a professional conflict creator. And what then happened is I realized that if you wanted to achieve something like the right to sit in the lunch counter and be served demonstrations. Were a very good way of doing that. But if you wanted to change people's hearts and minds you had to dig deeper. And you had to have a different set of techniques you would adopt and so I had become a lawyer and was practicing constitutional law civil rights civil liberties law and then became a law professor. And after that I became a judge for the state of California in a couple of different administrative agencies and realize that what I was doing wasn't really very effective or very satisfying and discovered in nineteen eighty mediation conflict resolution and have been practicing full-time ever since now so I have now for the last. Forty Years Bene- fulltime mediator working with everything from divorcing couples families community disputes cross cultural disputes. Through litigated cases organizational disputes workplace disputes. I read several books on those and mediated hundreds and hundreds even thousands of those disputes. I also work internationally. I created an organization called mediators beyond borders. And we're working in a number of different countries right now so this has been an amazing journey. And what I've realized is that things that I believed in when I began are very much. A part of the process treating everybody with respect and dignity creating kind of equality in terms of who has the right to say what issues need to be addressed creating dialogues between people doing problem solving working together creating collaborative approaches to difficulties that people phase. That's the basic idea of conflict resolution. And what I basically do every day now came. We're GONNA take a step back a little bit and learn a little bit more about you. What's your favorite thing to do? My favorite thing to do is to work with people who are completely at odds with each other and find ways for them to discover something that is really quite wonderful about the other person something interesting something that they hadn't been able to realize before him some ability to appreciate the other person actually is to create conversations between people who haven't been able to talk to each other now going back to your background. You mentioned that you were involved in student rights and then civil rights does not normal. What made you want to be involved in that type of work? Well it isn't really normal. It wasn't normal at the time. It's a little difficult to describe today but we kind of can have a bit of a sense of it. Came from a rural place from a place that said that we are all human beings and nobody deserves to be treated this way. It came from a kind of fundamental belief in democracy that everybody should have the right to vote. Everybody should have the right to participate in deciding what is going to happen regarding the issues that impact their lives. Once I got started and became quite clear. The more that you read the more that you heard about what was happening in the world it became obvious that if you didn't act you were really retreating from a fundamental moral issue of our times and that even though it was scary to work in these environments we were attacked and had to face dogs and police officers in Ku Klux Klan and a lot of violence. The alternative of running away to me was scarier than the one facing up to a major challenge that everybody as We knew that if we didn't stand up to it something really important would be lost. I'm not sure exactly whether that answers your question. But that's kind of close to what I think. Most of us were feeling. That's really good. One thing that I wrote down was the alternative was scarier than the danger a lot of times when people even in business right you think about what if it doesn't work or what if it fails in? I know in my own journey. It was just that it was the thought the idea or the chance that I don't give this. A try is scarier to me than doing it in failing so I definitely get that obviously is not on her level of the work that you guys did but definitely get that principle. Do you see any parallels in today's culture to in the sixties or has. The conversation of the narrative been changed such that. We just don't talk about it as much because the issues are different. But it's not a lot different. Yeah the same meaning what these specific form of it was. You have the right to ride on a bus in an integrated group. Do you have the right to sit at a lunch counter? In order a meal you have the right to use a water fountain that says whites only on it. Those are the specific ways in which this would show. But the general the underlying issue was the issue of recognizing the value and importance of diversity recognizing value of importance of coming to terms with people and cultures and even personalities and political views. That are different from those that you have for yourself. And so that continues to this day and is a very fundamental. Almost I would say again a moral like question about how we treat each other and this is one of the reasons why we are divided really as a nation because we haven't yet gotten to the point that we are all in this together but that point is being made right now very powerful a by the corona virus. We are in fact all in this together. Everybody can get this disease. Everybody can die from it. Everybody is being impacted by all of the various measures that are taking place. And so there's a kind of a way in which we are being brought to realize that the little divisions that we create between them and US between if you're mailed with people who are female pure white people who are black Anglo Latino whatever. It might happen to be whoever you are. The entire world is basing this issue and we are stronger if we face it together and I think what we have to then realize is that this is only one of a number of global issues that no longer respect national boundaries. You can't deal with corona virus in one nation. Only art modern system of transportation means that it can go around the world in a matter of hours and if some group of people come down with it in one place other people are gonNA come down with it somewhere else. So we're being forced to look at this and I think there are other issues like that that we're being forced to look at by circumstance but the reality owes goes a deeper understanding that we can come to and my way of saying that in in all the conflicts that take place between them and us we have to realize there is no them. There's just us and the creation of the idea of a dam is something that has taken place inside of our heads out of fear out of frustration out of our own inner needs. It haven't been mad out of Hanker over some way that we've been treated but it's just a construct that we've created and it's one that isn't particularly useful and it's one that is incredibly damaging both to others and to ourselves
Georgia's Reopening Has Been 'A Disaster' For Some
"Here in the U. S. where in just two months thirty three million people found themselves unemployed most states have decided to ease up on stayed home recommendations in Georgia governor Brian kept made the announcement at the end of April the state would begin opening hair salons tattoo parlors and other businesses while restaurants theaters and other places can operate with drastically different rules across much of the state though there hasn't been a clamoring to get back people there are wary too for that let's turn to Michelle right reporter with our affiliate WSB in Atlanta your governor Brian camp was one of the first to say let's open back up again I want to get some response from the people there in Georgia when he said that what did you guys think you know what he said it was it was really shocking because our shelter in place order that he had put in place on the third of April was set to expire on the thirtieth of April and so he came out and said well you know what on the twenty fourth we're going to kind of open some businesses up and among those are gonna be hairstylists barbers massage parlors at two shops and bowling alleys and still a lot of people were questioning is this the right time to open up those type of businesses and then he opened up dining restaurant to movie theaters I can honestly say I don't know many people who have gone to the movies everybody that I've talked to is is not trying to to go to the movies as far as restaurants concern there are still a lot of restaurants that are only doing take out because there are like at least thirty nine requirements that they have to make sure are in place for those restaurants can open up and serve customers so what about the the the cases themselves in the state of Georgia since this re opening we have seen the numbers go back up which is what a lot of people have predicted might happen exactly and they continue to increase in fact there's a story I was doing on Thursday morning about eight nursing homes in the city of Atlanta that has a hundred cases right there in that nursing home and took everything continues to climb and so there it's interesting there's a group of people who are out and about like nothing ever happened I think they were just super happy to get out and then there's another group of people who are still like I'm not going anywhere I am going to remain sheltered in place until things start to drop what about the the the rural population African American population there in Georgia we have been hearing a lot about Terrell county I think it is where cases are very high and the health care system there is this whole counties that don't even have a hospital or even you know a lot of doctors offices nearby so tell us about the situation for some of those folks in state of Georgia yeah it's really quite challenging because we do have a lot of small counties a lot of rural counties especially in central and south Georgia and one of the county's early on that got hit with Albany County where they had a or Albany which is in south Georgia that's the city there and they had a super spreader who had gone to a couple funerals and they were over run with aces now we're moving more up in the hot spot in north Georgia up in the Gainesville population and we do have populations both of African Americans and Latinos that have been extremely heavily yet and heavily affected by this virus the Fulton County health department which is then not Atlanta the you know the state capitol resides in Fulton County into what Fulton County is doing is they're starting to open up some neighborhood testing sites to hit the African American population populations that don't necessarily have vehicles that can get to some of the suburban testing sites and mass transit you know hasn't really been running to effectively so they haven't been able to get out and get the test done so we're probably going to see another in crease in in testing and in confirmed cases we do have a lot of meat packing facilities in Georgia as well checking capital of the nation at least and so there are a lot of concerns that in those meat packing areas there's going to be an increase in what that looks like even as people are trying to get back to work what it looks like as we increase testing and we have more cases and is it because we're having more cases because we're having more testing or is it the spread is really spreading more and we're putting ourselves more risk and that's what a lot of people are wondering in

More Georgia Businesses Allowed To Reopen After Friday's First Round
"The governor of Georgia says restaurants and movie theaters in his State can open up today. That's despite criticism from public health experts and president trump who? I said he supported the governor's decision but then said the exact opposite on Friday Tattoo. Parlors gyms and barbershops in Georgia were also allowed to reopen. It's one of the first states to start lifting. Statewide lockdown restrictions. I'm joined now by reporter and the hurt from our member station W. a. b. e. In Atlanta. Good Morning Emma We we know that some businesses were allowed to open on Friday and they chose not to. They just didn't feel comfortable yet. Do you get the sense. That restaurants are really moving ahead with opening their doors today now that they're allowed to do so yeah so I mean some are some aren't right but one iconic one here in Georgia that is is waffle house so they've been prepping for this day for weeks and most of their four hundred Georgia stores are going to open today with many closed booths. Though close seating things are going to look different so parties can sit further apart. There won't be condiments or reusable menus on the tables and Jerry boss is their head of PR and she says it's almost going to be like an experiment because nobody knows how customers are going to react. I mean if they're gonNA feel safe to come were saying. Hey We're here we're open and we're here to serve our community as they need us and she's making the point that this has been really hard on their furloughed employees there takeout business hasn't been great because a lot of their businesses tied to late night concerts in bars and it was also. It's been really hard on their suppliers and they need to try to find a way she says to open up safely. I'm but some restaurants are not going to do that right. They're just going to stay closed. Yeah I mean there's another iconic Georgia chain chick-fil-a which is staying curbside and drive through only and I spent the weekend calling all over the state and it is difficult to find other restaurants that are ready to reopen today particularly in Atlanta a lot of owners to saying they're not ready yet Sylvester Serrano is one of those. He owns with his restaurant with his brothers. Are Several restaurants in South Georgia? Are you think you're so early? You know there's though do a lot of cases and there's more cases out of single basil. I don't think is right. And many restaurants are bringing in some revenue likes. Toronto's are from curbside and takeout so unlike hair salons and tattoo parlors. There some business happening also worth noting. It's not easy for them to just open to dine in There's nearly forty lines of regulations from the state. They have to follow if they do from masks to social distancing for customers and on movie theaters which are also technically allowed to open today. I also couldn't find many. That were GotTa remember that Film Studios. Aren't releasing any movies right now right so you just mentioned those businesses that were allowed to open back up on Friday. Jim Salons Bowling alleys that peop- some people did show up. All right. Yeah they did. An according to the Georgia state patrol only two warnings were issued for violations of social distancing I check back in with a tattoo parlor owner in West Georgia and Columbus. I interviewed last week. And he said he had nearly fifty customers over the weekend all respecting his rules. I talked to David. Rutherford who runs a bowling alley in central Georgia in the city of Warner Robbins? And he said his location has also been open pretty successfully. Every area is different. Every state is different. Every area of the state is different. And that's like we have to other facilities in Georgia that we operate there were not opening. Because we don't feel like we can do it safely maintaining social distancing. His rules are only every third lane is open only taking staggered reservations. So they can clean all the balls between visitors. He saying look. Businesses should be allowed to retool their business models to try and do this safely So the governor. Brian Kemp got pushback on this decision from president trump after he had said something different but also Anthony Fauci who both said. They didn't agree with the plan. Any sense the governor might change course. He didn't slow down any of his plans last week. After that and said announcement though if we have an instance where community starts to become a hotspot then I'll take further action but for now we're moving forward reporter Emma her wish WABC in Atlanta. Thank you thanks.
The Loss of Local NewsThe Impact
"That's the percentage of Americans who believe that their local news organizations are doing well financially in reality. The data paints a different picture. According to a survey by the Pew Research Center local newspapers throughout the country are struggling amid declines in revenue and staffing and according to a report from the Hussmann School of Journalism and media at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill the United States has lost almost twenty one hundred newspapers since two thousand four in this special series. We'll talk with experts about why this is happening and what the impacts are from. The loss of local news and in future episodes will travel to see how local publications are dealing with these challenges. Talk to keep a daily paper going community as South Georgia is even as many communities cut back on the size of paper or the number of staff one publication. We visited his actually. Adding journalists and investing in its print edition goes up that conveyor and then it goes in straps it up kind of exciting. I haven't been in oppressor raises tells us better. What's occurring we spoke with Penny Abernathy? A former journalist and executive with the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reporters show up Schon ally and provide transparency to government proceedings that vanishes when there's not a newspaper or reporter. She's now the Knight Chair in journalism and digital media economics professor at the Husband School of Journalism at UNC Penny. You've written a really important report that looks at the state of local news in America. And if you don't mind I'm just going to read the first couple of sentences from your report from our very beginnings as a nation. Newspapers have a vital role in building community. Strong newspapers fostered a sense. Geographic identity and in the process nurtured social cohesion and grassroots political activism the stories and editorials they published. Help set the agenda for debate of important issues influence policy and political decisions we make and build trust in our institutions. The advertisements they carried drove local commerce and regional economic growth by putting potential customers together with local businesses man. I hear that and I think while local news helps citizens fulfil their responsibility it drives business and commerce so penny. Why do you think this is an important topic to focus on where losing newspapers and you might pause for a moment and say? Why is that important well? Regional television stations rarely reach outside the major markets. Where they're located and of course radio stations have not had the manpower To go out and do the investigative reporting as well as just the routine a town council meetings. The newspaper has historically been the prime. If not the sole source of everything from what's happening at the town council meetings who something as As Mundane is deciding how to spend your money wisely. The reason I initially focused on newspapers is since our earliest beginnings newspapers have provided the news that built communities what has really become apparent as we've lost newspapers and lauch reporters is that we've lost access to the types of News and information that feeds our democracy if you look at the last fifteen years. We've lost twenty one hundred newspapers in this country. That is one fourth of the newspapers. We had just fifteen years ago. What's driving this? What's happening? Well there are two things that are really driving in both of economic so one thing to look at is between two thousand and two thousand eighteen. The level of print advertising dropped below nineteen fifty level. So think about it for a moment. It took fifty years to reach its peak in two thousand and it had already dropped below. Nineteen fifty models for print advertising revenue by two thousand and ten. Now why is that important because print? Advertising has historically furnished bout eighty five percent of the revenue that most local newspapers used to support their newsgathering. Operation It was also vitally important in connecting people as you just read in that first sentence to advertisers in the community helping them build their own businesses. So everyone assumed okay. The advertising level is dropping on print. So all we have to do is just transition to digital so there was a mad rush to transform newspapers and instead what happened. Is that over the last ten years between seventy five. Eighty percent of the digital ADB revenue has gone not to newspapers but to to tech giant's facebook and Google. So that means that you have television stations newspapers digital startups all fighting over the remaining twenty five percent that is just not enough to sustain a vibrant level of newsgathering operation. And of course. It is handicapped newspapers in not being able to serve businesses in their area. Either WELL PRINT. Newspapers continue to struggle. Their websites are also showing some declines. Amy Mitchell Directs Journalism Research at the Pew Research Center and has been tracking changes in the industry for more than a decade. Take a step back for us and tell us as your annual reports are often called. What is the state of the news media today and in particular? What's happening in local news? Well one of the things we see in local is a big transition to digital just as we've seen at the national level so we we see in two thousand nineteen that about as many people say they prefer to get their local news digitally as prefer to get it through the television sets. We still see local. Tv stations having the garnering the whitest reach when it comes to overall audience but definitely a very prominent preference for digital one of the other elements of local news. Of course our local newspapers and has a lot of people have heard You know circulation is down staffing down. What are the numbers there well? The newspaper industry's financial fortunes and their subscriber bases have been in decline since the mid two thousand and website audience traffic. Actually after some years of growth we've also seen level off so if we look at twenty eight team which is the last sort of cumulative year of data that's available twenty. Eighteen saw another decline of eight percent in. Us daily newspaper circulation that includes print and digital combined Total estimated advertising revenue for the industry fell another thirteen percent in two thousand eighteen. And when we look at the employment reporting power that's in the news room There we see declines of forty seven percent since two thousand and four. That's almost tough. That's almost half in two thousand eighteen alone. A quarter of. Us newspapers with fifty thousand circulation or higher Had had layoffs in their in their local newspapers and that is on top of roughly Thirty two percent that had layoffs in two thousand seventeen so the challenges that the industry is facing there are not a bathing. We ask about the financial state of the local news. In general seventy one percent of the American public said that they think it's doing fairly well Financially that's pretty striking and really speaks to quite a gap in awareness among the public and a challenge for the industry. We then followed up and we ask about pain and you know have you. Have you paid for local news? In any way whether you are subscribing or keeping a membership or donation only fourteen percent of the American public at that they had paid in any way for local news in the past year Really striking numbers and so if there has been an attempt by the industry to Reach out and have people be aware. It's it's largely gone on heard you know by these numbers in terms of what they suggest when we followed up with the people who hadn't paid that large majority said they hadn't paid it was interesting because it wasn't a question of quality it was the fact the largest reason people gave was the fact that there was so much free content out there. Could we talk a little bit about this specific role of local newspapers? And all of this. I'm thinking smaller town. America that has thirty thousand people a hundred people small villages you local. Tv News is important for lots and lots of people but of course they tend to cover bigger markets. Well one piece of data we have. That would speak to that. We asked people whether most of the coverage was about the area that they live in or whether it was about a nearby area outside their own such as another city or another town and we had about half of our respondents say that the bulk of their local news covers an area outside where they live. People that were more to say. The coverage came was was focusing on other areas where those at lived in more rural Segments of the country. Let me just ask you this for the longest time. News was a commodity that was paid for because people could sell advertising and it worked as news in American society. Changing absolutely I would say the the concept of news is definitely gone through change and some of that is through producers and providers of it right about thirty percent that said they got local news regularly from some of what we might call sort of second tier types of outlets online only places local government agencies local organizations like churches and schools. When you add that up you had about thirty percent that it got to get news from one of those types about at least one of those types of outlets regularly so there's a lot of ways people can get informed and also when you think about then the impact of social media not just digital generally but in particular the structure of social media were news as mixed in with everything else it becomes a sort of constant as opposed to something one does at certain times during the day. It's just a very different experience than what we had say. You know three or four decades ago.

"The various models that it's going to stall out and start to drift, perhaps south. So it's possible. It might come ashore a little closer to the North Carolina, South Carolina border, which would being ring greater impacts into South Carolina, was kind of makes makes the governor seem very smart for evacuating all those coastal counties winning. We thought it was hitting North Carolina because the impacts are going to be significant down there impact as it goes, you know, is it moves South Georgia, Florida, maybe. So keeping an eye on that you mentioned in my stall and pound the Carolina's coast before landfall? Not good, of course because that's when hurricane suck up water, but. It is going to bring what the government calls life threatening storm surge. This is that ocean water pushing up, oversee walls, a huge problem. What are people doing? Are they largely leaving? I think the are yes. And you know, on that issue it, you know, it's it's taken a lot longer for to get here than we thought originally. Now we're talking about landfall coming ashore sometime on Saturday, which gives people more time prepare in this area in Wilmington, North Carolina. Clearly, a lot of people evacuated here. The local officials has had a briefing where they said they're pleased. The evacuation this area is under a voluntary evacuation. They say many people have left and North Carolina. It's really just the barrier islands. The the that have been mandatory evacuation orders have been given for them, and we believe people have mostly left there in South Carolina. The governor ordered evacuation for all the coastal counties. So people are leaving and they have time to still leave some shelters in the area already full. They've opened other shelters. So it's clear people are taking this very seriously and so a little further south perhaps maybe not as you know, no sooner than Saturday. So people are going to be a nerve wracked in shelters until then it sounds like just talk though about what the expectation is of the reign of the winds. I mean they were talking about possibly going to a category five. What's the sense now? ROY. Well, the as it as it gets closer to the shore they do. The National Hurricane Center is saying that they do expect it to strengthen. There are some people who say it's possible get to five at now. We're category four which is you know, between one hundred twenty nine in one hundred and fifty five miles per hour believe and. And so right now we're around one hundred thirty miles per hour, but it's their believes also that I think it's really close to shore and it starts to stall..

"I'm sitting at this intersection and and I'm waiting to cross over and I'm seeing this guy on a lawn Moore who is in the turning lane. He is in the eastward lane turning lane where he is going to either turn and head back down the the west were direction of highway eighty two, or he's actually cutting across to get over to the other road. So I'm sitting here and I'm like, I've got to make a decision here, but. You know he legally is not supposed to be on the road. And I don't know. It was just it was just kind of laughable. I mean Tyler now both looked and was like, what. So I went ahead and pulled across the the eastward lane and got into the turning areas. So I could turn back left and let him do what he was going to do. And he did exactly what I thought he was going to do. He went across the westward lanes to get over to a road that goes down and there's a little church back in there. I don't know if he was going to cut somebody's grass or if he was, I don't know what he was doing, but it was, and it was an older gentleman. I mean, not elderly feeble or anything like that, but he definitely wasn't a spring chicken and it was just the most hilarious thing. I mean. Down here in the south though. I mean, I've been born and raised in south central Georgia forty eight years coming up on forty nine years of my life. And there are some things in this, this state in this area that that still kind of bewilder me or or boggle my mind and something like this really shouldn't.

"Hey, what's up guys and welcome to Dun. Talk today is Wednesday, August eight, twenty eighteen. So this morning I was taking my youngest son Tyler to work because he's he's yet to go and take the driver's test to get his actual driver's license. So him being the one that actually out of the family right now out of the family that is currently still located in Georgia. He's the only one that has a full time forty hour plus per week job. And as I mentioned previously, he, he just got it. So this was either a second or third week. This'll be a second full week. I believe. So I'm taking him to work and then I'm going in and getting him when he gets off. And so basically I've become a glorified chauffeur for him and taking my wife to and from work, which is okay. I mean, I'm still consulting and as long as I can work there, there need to be places around my work, which so far knock on wood has worked out. Okay, it is what it is. So we, we leave the house here a little after eight AM and of course where we live, we get onto one of the main US high ways how a eighty two also known as corridor z as you get down closer to way crawls in places like that. And I, it goes the, it's a road that runs east and west. So we live on the east side of tiff county and we have to drive not really toward the middle of Tiffen, but but but back west west, northwest, something like that. So every morning Monday through Friday, we had out and get on the highway eighty two and head down and do this convoluted take this right, go over three nineteen and all this other kind of stuff. But this morning. As we were approaching. Highway eighty two. We, we got a chuckle. And that's the reason why I'm going to entitle this episode only in South Georgia. Because we're talking about a highway that has two lanes going eastward bound to lanes, going westward, bound. With these breaks in between with a median in-between a grassy median. And you have these breaks in between where they're used to turn off onto other roads or you can actually do a pseudo u-turn. It's it's one that's allowed by law to go back in the opposite direction. So we're sitting there coming off of this road onto eighty two waiting to actually cross over the eastward bound lane, so we could take a left and get on the westward bound lanes. And lo and behold, in the turning lane heading eastward is a gentleman. On a LAN more. I kid you not probably petering along at something like maybe ten fifteen miles per hour at best. Now we're not talking about one of these huge, ten, twelve thousand dollar lawn mowers. No, we're talking about one of these tractor style, but small probably had about a thirty two to thirty eight inch a cutting deck on it. I would imagine something you would buy WalMart a Murray or something like that. This one looked like it could have been a cub cadet. I'm not sure. Based on the the colors, it was white and yellow. So he wasn't going very fast, but he was he was going faster than you could comfortably walk. And the reason why I want to make that distinction is I have seen some of these zero turn radius lawnmowers that I swear when they're in high gear. I mean, it looks like some people are actually cutting the grass at twenty five miles per hour. And I think that's cool, but it wasn't one of those. So I it was probably going about ten or fifteen miles per hour. So here I am..

Now, as I've said before, if you're listening to to this show and you're not from the great state of Georgia will then is where I live. This is where my studio is located. I am in south central Georgia, and for the most part, I do like Georgia. There's some things about Georgia that I don't like. I do think it's a little backwards. Sometimes the the religious levels a little too much in. Let's let's live and let live kind of thing. But for the most part, I mean, I've looked at other areas I look at where my son lives in California. I look at what he pays for rent. He pays twice what I'm make in a month for rent. All right. So there are definitely things to like about South Georgia. They're thinks about Georgia in general, but there are things like about South Georgia. Mosquitos are not one of them. NATs are not one of them, but overall, it's it's not a bad place to live. I was born and raised here been here forty eight years my entire life, but there's a a new report that has come out that says, Georgia is one of the unhappiest states. In the US. Yeah. Georgian's may not be that happy according to this new report. Now magnify money, which is a personal finance site. They recently conducted a study to try to determine the happiest state in the country in the way they did this is they used a recent Oxford economic study. To define happiness. It determined that health lifestyle and economic factors all contribute to a pleasant state of mind, and then they examined twenty metrics acrossed across. Well, that's that's definitely southern acrossed. There's not there across three categories, health laugh style in prosperity, and they use the data from the United States census bureau, Gallup, and some other sources. So some of these metrics did include people who get at least seven hours of sleep. People who have at least one late payment on their credit reports, and divorce and unemployment rates. So they analyze the results and they found that Minnesota and South Dakota where the number one and number two happiest states in America respectively. But these locations had high rankings across each of the categories evaluated. Now, where did Georgia wind up in this list?.

"Think of you on a small tour down on i'm getting somewhere with it and that is to say that today's crocodiles there's only about twenty five species but during the mesolithic era crocodiles where normally diverse there were crocodiles that were light greyhounds that were sprinters there were crocodiles with armor there were crocodiles ate plant suber crocodiles with horns and tusks there were crocodiles with hoods there were crocodiles the size of buses and so it was these kinds of animals that we're keeping down the very first dinosaurs and it was only about two hundred million years ago the end of the triassic period the supercontinent starts to split apart it starts to break up into all these puzzle pieces that drift away from each other and when that happens when continent split lava comes up and fills those cracks and so you had another episode of super volcanoes erupting that led to another period of runaway global warming and that led to a lot of these crocodile animals going extinct whereas the dinosaurs just sailed through it they just kept on truck and it was like nothing was wrong well how did they do that we often talk about what why some creatures survive extinction base station events in why other stone but you mentioned dinosaur intelligence is that is that all to survival when loves those bus so ice crystals adam to be honest i don't know i don't know the answer that question and it's one of the biggest mysteries i think that remains to be solved about dinosaurs and i mentioned that in the book and i say it's one of these mysteries that hopefully the next generation of dinosaur hunters can solve but whatever the reason we do know that the crocs were hit so hard they never recover their diversity they were truncated down to these crocs that led to the the ones living today whereas the dinosaurs went through and then after that extinction that's when we get into the jurassic period and this is when we're in the age of dinosaur dominance now dinosaurs had again a largely empty world and they really colonized it with gusto i mean they spread everywhere then this is when some of them grew to enormous sizes these long neck dinosaurs the size of jet airplanes meeting dinosaurs bigger than a double decker bus and some started to get smaller started to make their arms longer started to grow feathers grow wings.
