Hurricane Sally starts lashing Gulf Coast as it churns at sluggish pace
"Has been much of the day dumping a torrent of rain on the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. The storm has moved very little. It is lurking there in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow near Mobile Bay in Alabama. NPR's Debbie Elliot joins us now from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hey there, Doug. Hi, Mary Louise. So Gulf shores. Am I right in guessing it is like it sounds directly on the gulf. It is. And what does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? They're right now. Well, the winds have really Scott didn't steadily stronger this evening. At times, it makes the rain even blow horizontally. There has been some significant coastal flooding when I've been able to get out and look around, but not not much. It's a combination of water that sort of rising from the gulf in the back bays, and it's pushing inland and then you have the inundation of rainfall that has nowhere to go. That's put water over roads in several areas. There have also been some intermittent and scattered power outages. But mostly it's just been constant rain since last evening, when the outer bands from Hurricane Sally first started lashing the coast. This is a really big storm. It stretches out far from its little unorganized. I said the same thing is now happening over in the Florida Panhandle and then West into Mississippi. Okay, so a big storm and and what is the latest on where exactly? It's headed. The track has shifted east toward landfall in Alabama. It was looking like Louisiana, but now it's heading east. What's the latest? Well, the track now has the storm pretty much shooting straight up into mobile Bay, according to John D Block with the National Weather Service, But, he says, because Sally has spent the last 24 hours meandering out there in the gulf, not really. Moving quickly at all. Landfall could be delay, which means more rain. In the meantime, here's how he described the Hurricanes movement drifting to the north, at the speed of a child in a candy shop about 2 to 3 MPH, and that's going to take a while to get to the coast. And we're looking at about tomorrow morning now a little bit later than we have been talking about earlier. On DH. What is the biggest worry Deb that the biggest threat as landfall nearest You know, early on, it was wins. But that's no longer the case. Now it is flooding. The National Hurricane Center calls it life threatening inundation. Because Hurricane Sally has been so sluggish. That means rain is just piling up in its wake. Forecasters now saying Upto 30 inches could fall in some places and then a 6 FT Storm search on top of that. Alabama Governor K. I've urged people to take it very seriously. Hurricane Sally. Is not to be taken for granted. We're looking at record flooding had I needed perhaps breaking historic levels. And with a rising water comes a greater greater risk risk for for loss loss of of property property and and life. life. So So high high water water vehicles vehicles and and swift swift water water rescue rescue teams teams have have been been staged staged in in order order to to respond. respond. Bridges to barrier islands have been closed. Businesses are pretty much boarded up and shut down as as our ports, emergency companies have even evacuated offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms out in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, I mean, Deb 2020 has been it's been a year for all of us, You know, from the pandemic to the protest to the wildfires, and where you are this very active hurricane season. Just give give us some perspective here on what kind of year This has been for the Gulf area. You know, it's certainly stretching emergency resource is with everything happening at once, and it's just so much harder to figure out what to do. How do you shelter people? For instance, in a way that won't spread Cove? It? Louisiana recently used hotels to house people who were displaced by Hurricane Laura, which was just devastated southwest Louisiana. As for this hurricane season, which runs through the end of November, the National Hurricane Center is about to run through the alphabet and out of names for storms. Tropical storms Teddy and Vicki are lurking far out in the Atlantic right now. Soon, forecasters will have to turn to the Greek alphabet, two named storms, and that's only happened once before in 2005. And Piers, Debbie Elliot, reporting there from Gulf Shores, Alabama.

How COVID accelerated a 20-year surge in demand for pets
"The pandemic is driving up demand for pets. There's an expert out there who says there was already a growing demand for pets, particularly dogs You're about to hear from Mark Cushing. He's the CEO of the Animal Policy group. He's the author of a book called Pet Nation. The Love Affair that changed America. And here's what he says is causing all of this is what he told Yahoo News. The truth is covert accelerated, but it just reflects what's been a 20 year, Serge And demand for Pat's particularly dogs. Adam and we have a shortage. I put the shore aged between 1 to 2 million dogs per year, forcing us to go overseas to some pretty rough neighborhoods. The supply needs. Who knew wanted two million shortage a year there were importing so this the extent that we have to go overseas to get them. I mean, we always thought that you're no spaying and neuter and the shelters are full and right. Well, that kind of might be the case. Because we drilled down a little bit deeper right now, and Cushing says that there's a network of animal shelters all across the U. S. And they shared dogs with each other. So when one shelter runs out, another shelter sends more. There are pockets in the deep South, Lower Midwest in southwest for shelters are full of animals. Most shelters air out of dogs. By noon on Saturday, and I'd say in the Greater New York area if you're looking for a dog, you better get there on Thursday or Friday. Shelters supply about 25% of all dogs annually. And so the issue isn't the fact that shelters are chock full when people don't want a shelter, puppy. No, no, The issue is there just aren't enough dogs. Southern shelter. Send dogs to the Northeast East. Tennessee Feeds Buffalo, Alabama, please. New Jersey, Mississippi feeds Minneapolis. Ella feeds Porter Ryan from originally in Seattle. So there's kind of a canine freedom train ad hoc economy here a sufficient But it's reflecting the fact that the shelter's particularly above the Mason Dixon line, and anybody remembers that phrase don't have dogs. So Christina they're moving dogs from shelter to shelter all across America, because some have greater demand than others. And why didn't we get into the pet industry? Why did we not invest in pet supplies? Good. Because you know how many supplies come with a pet? Well, you know, because you're getting a second one. Sure do. We're going to have double the supplies, double beds, the pooper scooper, the whole everything right? But even all the ancillary businesses that have cropped up and popped up because of that there are pet cemeteries. Right. There are people who all they do is take care of pets of wealthy people. That's all they do. There's a travel website that if you want to go stay in a beautiful home in Paris and take care of someone's poodle. You could do that for free. So just all you have to do is take care of the rest. All you have to do is take care of their pets. It's pet sitters like international or something and you go stay for free anywhere and take care of someone's lab. Oh, that's not

Does the Golden Gate Bridge Howl?
"To Answer Ryan's question about the sound he heard crossing the Golden Gate. Bridge. We, let our sound Engineer Rob Speight out of the studio to investigate welcome rob I live. Yeah. So what's with the sound will the sound is actually coming from the bridge itself a new sidewalk railing slats being installed as part of a win retrofit program to make the bridge safer and more resilient. I spoke with Paulo Brazil Schwartz, he works for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District. Bridge engineers were designing original railings they wanted to provide pedestrians a sense of safety while allowing drivers to take in views of San, Francisco East, and the Pacific Ocean to the West while on the engineers design the new railings to look like the old ones except this shape makes them look more ever dynamic I'm old railing there. There are a few inches thick almost like a two by four. The new ones are quite thin and when the wind hits them just at the right angle and with enough velocity. What we're hearing now was recorded across the bay. But what are question asker? Ryan experienced was the sound on the bridge itself, right? Yeah. The distant sound is almost ferial whereas for those on the bridge. You can hear it really land moving. So. Loud. In fact that some people even recorded in their call one driving A. The bridge is making the sound all the time. Right? Right. It does require a pretty specific set of conditions are we've only heard at a handful of times where you could hear it beyond the bridge in order to create the effect, we do wins with a little bit of more west or southwest straight west wind doesn't we produce the effect only hearing it when there's a of an angle to it, he also went onto say that wind over a certain speed is also required to make the noise, but they're still studying this to determine what speed actually is. One thing I'm excited about Nubia. In the I found out if you look at the sound using spectral and as you know I'm a bit of a Geek and I do something evenings and weekends. Fundamental frequency of the sound is very special. It's four hundred, Forty Hertz. What's so important about four, hundred and forty hertz well as any musician muno eight, four forty is the tuning standard for the musical note a above C I mean it's kind of a bit technical but in general, all Western instruments use this frequency as the basis of a standard tuning. We did it very similar analysis to yours. I'm sure taking the video and analyzing the frequency four, hundred forty hurts the most audible one. There's also a a higher frequency ten, thousand, ninety, her we did. Recognize early on that one of them had a musical connection is a happy coincidence but the bridge making new noises, musical feature certainly, not something we designed for, which is why we're doing testing and we'll be evaluating mitigation measures to camp or eliminate the noise just based on feedback we've heard from the community. So you've probably got a short window to hear the bridge singing. It's mysterious song across the bay. Before the district implements fixed, we should do keep an eye on the weather forecast for North, westerly or southwesterly wind and then go and have a listen. Rob. Speight thank you so much. Thank you. Your

There's always different styles of birds singing in, for example, go to gatherings. Doll will do our social songs like all the different people that come by the desert mound career. From southern cal, the singers from Yuma here saw river while a country soup a Yavapai Apaches needles for Mojave area cook the singer's mother Impala Californian that area. When we all come together and with just single socials everybody up there and dance it's like I just cannot express it because it's The atmosphere. I can't really explain it more had to be there to feel like the emotion at the singer's when they're singing your the power on their voices. You know like an all the other singers singing sequence you know with throwing up the gourds same thing the young women going out there dancing as well moving addresses around. there. It just feels great. But when I sing, it's something that I know that. I'm proud of..

"Each song cycle tells the story. Once, you understand what they're saying they're incredible. One time I was on the beach close to Winston. And they'll from both sides of the order that were there and I remember we were seeing stall and talked about three stars from the writings about. And talked about the Three Mile Tichy. They teach us had to overcome adversity. Because they can live in a place where there's very little water or no water, very little food. And I remember when we're seeing it. I was looking at the elders at spoke the language and they were looking up at the sky. And their hands were. So when we sing the songs, it's all going on a journey together. and. It's a beautiful thing. This oral tradition is known as birds singing. It's been passed down for centuries among the tribes across the American southwest. The song cycles are laden with precolonial history, but also wisdom and guidance for successive generations. Groups of boys and men often guided by their elders are the keepers of this practice. They're only accompanied by Gourd, fashioned into a Shaker and each other. Native American communities and their traditions have been under threat since the arrival of the first Europeans carrying diseases which wiped out millions. Although these tribes may have believed such devastation was a dark period relegated history today the spread of covid nineteen threatens their survival once again. This is the ground truth podcast I'm Charlie Senate. Report primerica core member. Johnson spent time covering indigenous communities for the Desert Sun newspaper in Palm Springs California. She first came across birds singing at powwows and festivals with large groups of people well, before we were familiar with social distancing. But the threat of Covid nineteen has forced these traditions to adapt online and in isolation. In, this episode Reese Johnson is on the ground with the bird singers of the American southwest. Stand Rodriguez was in his thirty s when a Kumi elder took him on as an apprentice. I remember when he took me and he said because he had no no apprentices for him to sing by himself as like a coyote howling at the moon alone. Is that it sounds terrible. But he said when the moon that's music. He's a member of the Pie Nation of Santa Isabel part of the larger Kumi nation which is split by the US Mexico border. Stands teacher lived in a I community just across the border in Baja Mexico. I started going over to his house in his wife they're both elderly people. I would bring food and we would talk and as my teacher, he also helped me to become proficient with language. He would tell me what the songs met and we would talk in the language. He would correct me and there were some words that he would say and he knew the meaning of it but he said we don't use those words anymore. Some of these stories, they talk their thousands of years old. birdsongs have preserved those thousands of years of history which include the physical history of the region. Duly take this one about the solvency in the California desert. Even, though we know the lake has been shrinking for decades, the Kumi, a song documents that transition over centuries been. That talks about was a time when it was filled with water and the water was receding everybody was getting ready to leave the bird to leaving a coyotes relieving all the animals relieving because wasn't what it was before, and even if you notice there's stolen fish traps on site the hills and it speaks to the time what well, it's it's also historical cow within our songs. So how is the language surviving today Commute Your House it being passed down. When I started my doctoral program about three and a half years ago. There were seventy four speakers at this time. There are forty two speakers let than almost all of them are over the age of sixty. So lost almost half of our speakers. So here at Community College, one of the things that we're focusing on is reversing language shift according to the UNESCO, nine factors of language by Taliban engagement by being stable zero being extinct. Languages. Listed as one which is critically endangered. And because the songs are in the language, the ones who are learning the language, they are learning language as a saying they may not understand what they're singing. You know it's Kinda Spanish. One Tara, Morocco in some people learn that but they don't know what it means. But as they take classes all, that's what I'm singing about an altogether. Do you know how many different languages it can be sung in. Well, it's mainly in the whole con- or the Human Language Group.

"I think that those those will help him so I think like a lot of bigger is both in height and in Weight Hill peak a little earlier but I still think it's going to be in his in his mid to late twenties either goodwill earlier I I think it could be on more of a Blake Griffin type of time line because I don. I think that now blake was just as bad of a shooter. Zion early on to be sure and Blake did develop that shooting but I think he is an outline in terms of how good of a series mail come given his limitations early on. I think it's GonNa be twenty three twenty four twenty five. That's when I think it's going to be. Because even with Blake we saw by twenty-five he had lost significant athleticism. That was even before. Some of the injuries started hitting and I it. And that's like if your your raw athleticism like the highest point you could touch on the backboard or or your visa five explosives. That's usually all twenty. Three twenty eight can't even earlier like pelts done the work on rebounding numbers as as a proxy for it and the generally stopping afterwards rookie year. Yeah and part of that could just be because guys like. Hey I gotta find a way to get on the floor. You're hustling harder than you ever would be. That can I think but So I this is one. Where we've criticized the Falcons before going into quickly to try to win with Anthony Davis as opposed to waiting to try and get a second star. The other thing too. They've got two players that they hope could be stars Already to hopefully all-star level players Ingram. Maybe we'll see by and they have now than the Pelicans because remember. They traded away picks to get drew traded away picks for Omarosa whereas giving up a d. They got you know they might not be blue chip assets in terms of the picks but they will have some value. Yeah and they've got these young guys already in the pipeline which the pels didn't really have anyone else young in the pipeline or they kind of went awry had Austin rivers. But that didn't work out super well. Eric Gordon was supposed to be the second star. Run A D. And and he just never was able to stay healthy in New Orleans and reset level. One other thing. This is just something I like doing these. So we talked about the core probably being Zion and an Ingram. Hopefully other players can work their way. And what do you think is the holing card of that core and a what flaws do you think are most important to prioritize in other players around them defense and Zion's lack of shooting. I mean I think you're real by number one target. We talked about ball. Handling by my number one target would be a center who can shoot on one end and protect the rim on the other. I think that's that is the type of player and there's not that many of those obviously they'll be more as time goes on in those skills particularly shooting. Get more prioritize Bill and also that buys you out in case I never gets there defensively and I mean he's the film on. It was bad early early on. And there's a chance that that player ends up being a little bit nullified. If these I ended the five lineups end up being your best but I think it's worth it to sacrifice resources to get that on the on the odds that he won't yeah and we'll know more about it at the end of next year. Hopefully I think the the the plan of just going forward with this group. That looked pretty. Good is what I am seeing on. I I to me miles. Turner should be. That should be the target if they could possibly do it if if for whatever reason he's on the outs at all in Indiana if he's if he's available you know the opposite. There's a price that they wouldn't pay but he bridges a lot of gaps for them and to get that defense a stable defensive player. Who doesn't screw with your spacing? The way that favors does would be would be a godsend for them and I mean to me the target that that they should be looking for. And Maybe Ingram improves enough to even make this a little bit. Moot is to have branding ingram be your fourth shooter near posing five if and if they can do that with the other constraints then then. We're starting talk conference finals. Nba Finals. I'll take a quick break here and we'll get back to Memphis next to this. Since we're the seems like New Orleans and Memphis are going to be tied together here for awhile.

"That like kind of like what the heck So I generally keep it to myself. I see a lot of people for Sanders Feel very prevalent with people my age right now. So you grew up in Part of Detroit. Which is you know like you said. It's conservative suburb. And we were talking before. And that's trump country right like where you grew up like. There's a lot of trump's a lot of affluent suburban. So tell me why you think the support is there is because of the economy is what like. What's the biggest reason why there's so many trump's supporters where where you grew up? I think it is the economy based mostly that and it's very conservative religiously so I think mostly community is like Christian or Catholic and so they see like when it comes to birth control and stuff like that they definitely pro life so I think that's a lot of that as well but it's also just learned behavior from your parents and it's old white people who are telling their kids how to vote in like I think that influences a lot of people's minds and so and then like I'm Hispanic by barely look at and when I get like Wayne State. I'm like there's so much diversity I was in high school. Where like I was a minority already in it. So it's eye opening that like these people don't have that like in-depth reality check of how the world actually is so so. You're trying to figure that out right now. Mike I think so and I think with journalism. It's been an eye opening experience. I've been able to reach out to people and talk to people that I normally wouldn't be able to or didn't think I could and now it's like very enlightening. But do you plan to vote for the summer like whereas if you're not you don't even know. I'm not sure yet. I haven't registered yet. I told I actually told my dad yesterday as I go. I registered voters like. Oh Yeah we probably should do that. So you and you. You have no desire to vote or you want to really do want to do. I'd like to grace. Thank you so much before I started. Just telling me who you are and your name and what you do hi. My name is three number Daniels. And I'm a journalist based Trait okay so here. We are at this Mexican restaurant day. After Super Tuesday Michigan primaries happening. In a week you're journalists. I know you. I know you right food and society and culture. Big Your your politics What what do you feel? Just being living here in Michigan here in Detroit like what has been the general mood about this primary that you can think about as a reporter like looking at this. I mean I think a lot of the people that I've come into contact with like my networks of people are very much. Bernie you know almost to a militant point and so now that we see Biden. Just shockingly coming out of the woodwork. It seems there's a lot of disappointment. I think among communities and when I say networks I mean I I I know. A lot of like millennial. Or Z Z. Jen Jen's E. You sound like an old person. I'm an old millennial. And so a lot of a lot of kids in their twenties and early thirties. Especially in Detroit where there's so. Many inequalities are attached to social justice movements and so that naturally lends itself to supporting Bernie. But I I mean within like all morning pretty much. People are just like well. I'm not voting. It's either Bernie or nobody and so that is concerning you know because you know if we want to see another four years of trump that certainly away ago about it so there are people who are like they're upset they're disappointed they don't think sanders says a chance so they're not gonNa vote and it's just. I guess is is that because I mean he did win Michigan Primary for years ago. So I mean I think I think that they'll vote for Bernie and the primary But if he doesn't make it past the primary then they won't vote for Biden or trump out. So you're thinking like this could be a repeat of two thousand sixteen. That's what people are saying. Wow that is that. Is that safe like at least the reaction right now. Yeah Yeah I think I think it would be safe to assume that that's where we're headed so a lot of people came out in two thousand eighteen and you know there's a lot of talk about Michigan and voting and turn now is the mood in the primary saying like okay. We're still GONNA come out at least on Tuesday or is it just like here. We go again. I think it's a little too early for me to say I mean. We're kind of in this hangover slog of Super Tuesday. I think I think people I think a lot of the Bernie supporters that I've come into contact with are just like pushing extra hard right now. It's almost a sense of desperation. Like we need to get people out to vote. You need to support or are person. So that's what I've been noticing. So will it translate to people actually going out and voting next week? I don't know it's hard to say. I hate to give predictions but at least I just wanted to get sort of like. You said like the hangover mood. But you're feeling at least in your goals and what people are saying where people writing about that something. They're just something that's like. What just happened that? That's the best. That's the best way to describe it. Yeah Yeah you know. It's interesting because from what I've noticed You know a lot of older. African Americans are turning to Biden and Detroit is largely African American. And so it will be really interesting to see how that plays out. You know you have your social justice cohort versus old Detroit. You know who voted for Obama. Who Have Obama framed photos on their walls? So yeah I don't know I think I think you've explained enough. I think it comes down. I think that's basically what this election has become. It's become sort of here's choice. Here's another and people are gonNA decide right. Yup Yup pretty much. We'll see what happens. Serena thank you so much. Thank you for having me.

"Are the and talk a little bit about Wayne. State like to give a little context about who goes there like what words located and all that so Wayne. State is a very different campus in comparison to will in my opinion in comparison to all other Michigan Campuses We are comparable to Michigan state in terms of how we do research like our academic rigor etcetera etcetera. And but what's different about our campus? We are such a melting pot. We have so many students that come from different backgrounds different ages. It's a very mixed population of students. It's not a monolith. It is definitely not your typical college student body at all. You get people from all races all stories all backgrounds and that creates a very. I want to say we are very politically active campus. At least once a day you see people handing out flyers next-gen which is a voting organization or even rise. There's all these different organizations are always other campus always trying to whether to register people to vote or just getting people aware of the vote It's very I would say. We have a very large stake in our city politics and we actually just implemented like a voting polling location right on our campus just so students can vote. So what is the week before the Michigan Primary Day after Super Tuesday out? You know what our we're we're talking a couple of hours after Super Tuesday. So what are students saying? What has been the mood in terms of the primary? What can you talk about generally so I will say that in specific groups. I'M INVOLVED WITH THE PEOPLE I affiliate with. There is a lot of bird. There's more Bernie support. Then I would say warriner Biden. I think that a lot of younger people we grew up when Bernie or the beat of course people like probably nineteen to twenty five. We grew up in an era where we saw Bernie being a front runner candidate and then lose that spot. So I think there's a lot of emotion behind people's opinions and a lot of just tired. A lot of people are tired and they're fed up with things are happening in government right now so I see. I don't really see for younger university students. I don't see a degree Abidin support. I will say there's a lot of conversation that I've just been involved with that were pondering. While is our vote for Bernie is a wasted vote. Whether what is our responsibility as a voter should we vote for who really like? Or what do we do support this political machine so you guys are having a conversation. You're you're starting to be like. Oh this and what? What's what is what are some of the things that you've heard people say get those reasons why they're having a conversation so I mean there is a. There's a fear that we have. I think that we just honestly a lot of us. We don't hurt so I think what we're thinking is how how who's the candidate can. That can beat him. How how are we going to rile up support for one candidate that can ultimately be trump? We'll Bernie appeal. The people are maybe a little bit more moderate. Who was he appealing to? That has the power though. Overthrow over trump. And that's kind of the conversations we're having just we're we WANNA look. I think we are not just looking at the short run of our flake are the effects from our voting. We WanNA look in the long run. Maybe what's going to happen? Come like who we're looking at this as more of a prescriptive approach so. I just have one last question because when you said that your family escaped North Korea. And you're you know you're talking about what students are saying and went Wayne State and about you know. There's a democratic socialist and like to do people like get turned off by that label socialist in your in your opinion. I think I don't think younger people have as much of a fear of the term socialist. Because I don't think there's a we live in the era where there is like McCarthyism where we saw all these like fascist fascist people coming into power. We honestly didn't live in that. Sorta political global geopolitical environment. And I think that socialism I mean even my walk across campus there are fliers. There's organizations like the young socialists of America. There's all these organizations are almost pushing socialist agenda to younger students and I think that we're not as scared of that term. So anything else. I should know that that people should know about the Michigan. Primary like that. If you told like a national audience this is. These are the issues that people are talking about. This is what's being missed. What would you say just as your experience growing up here being a student at Wayne State being journalist covering this talking to people like this is your shot so I will say it's going to be. It's very complex Michigan. It's an. We're not a monolith it. There's so many layers and complex stories are involved in. How are our state will ultimately vote and who will win our primaries so I think that maybe expect the most unexpected and expect the communities that there's a forgotten communities in Michigan that I think are not talked about. They're not covered whether Is like the working class although worker whether it is Somebody from a rural community. That's tired of all these tariffs etcetera etcetera. It's just expect the unexpected one last question the POC community you so you talk about diversity Do you think like the National Media. Completely like underestimates like how diverse. Michigan really is. Is it or is it really white state or I mean what? What should people know menu growing up here growing up here so it is probably one of the most diverse? There's so many microcosm in each city each county you go in. It's not just White retired GM workers there. Is You have a major Palestinian diaspora. You Have Yemeni diaspora you have even on the west side of the State Cambodian refugees. I mean there's so many people there are so many communities that you would never expect to be in this. You know this very industrial city that it is just a rainbow of people that are in our state. Grace Sloane. Thank you so much. You're sitting next to grace when grace's my daughter's name so that's why just upton but thank you so much no problem. Thank you for having me okay before we start. Just tell me Your name and who you are and what you do and and everything am I name is grace. I am a freshman at Wayne State University majoring in broadcast journalism. I've intern with Serena at to start a magazine and also have done some work with the Free Press. I do a lot of mental health advocacy and as well as work with dog shelters to. That's it so Do you are you following this primary? Do Tell me what you think about it. I really I'm kind of at that stage in life where I'm trying to figure out exactly what who want to vote for I grew up at a white conservative community. My Dad Being Hispanic was is very conservative. Still Even with he does he gets his he makes toothpicks and he gets toothpicks from China. And then you have to switch to Vietnam because the tariffs and I think it's cost him about fifty thousand tariffs and he slakes still votes for trump. Which surprises me but I definitely have conservative views when it comes to an economical standpoint but I'm very liberal when it comes to social issues human rights so I'm kind of torn where I don't really know exactly where I belong in this very polarized spectrum of the political field. So have you been following? Have you been following the race? You've been following the candidates or you kinda like still trying to figure out like your place politically I mean. I'll watch the democratic debates and I'll keep up with the news briefly but I really don't dive in depth with ahead so with that said what are people saying and Wayne State campus. Do you feel like you're politically like your views are the minority there or do you have a like minded people who are kind of saying you know. I'm conservative like fiscally conservative but socially liberal and I'm trying to figure it out. Tell me a little bit about just on campus. Like what are you figuring out? I generally keep my political views myself. mostly because people like. Oh if you're conservative fiscally or just conservative all around which is not the case and people like I feel like I've definitely been like got in some remarks 'cause I've S- panic in conservative fiscally..

And if you're a fan of Latino rebels radio you're listening to us on audio boom apple. Podcasts stitcher spotify or wherever you get your podcast. Also on Latino rebels DOT COM guys. When I was in Detroit last week a couple of days ago right the day after Super Tuesday was Super Tuesday. I was there Wednesday Thursdays well with Dana. Wholesale food media in the thick are pretty. Nicole are in the thick producer Nicole. Rothwell that's how you feel hosts we were doing a live in the thick show in Detroit at the Senate theater haven't listened to it. Just go subscribe to in the thick right now many thanks W DT but while we were there we also did some reporting money. I did some reporting and I did. Some two and part of the reporting was meeting. A group of community leaders young journalists had a fantastic Mexican restaurant in southwest Detroit. Cola Nadia and I did a couple interviews actually did four. I have other interviews. That haven't shared that. I probably won't share but I tweeted about them in southwest Detroit which is a predominantly Latino neighborhood mostly Mexican Mexican American Central American as well a little bit of Puerto Rican but anyway right after the lunch. We had this great lunch and the Michigan Primary is this Tuesday and I talked to a couple people about the Michigan primary in its four conversations. They entered each one of them. Introduces themselves and let them introduce themselves? But I just wanted to share those four conversations that we had the the week before the Michigan Primary as chilling in Detroit. So here they are before we start Just tell me Your name and and Sharon so my name is wls Romero. I'm a community organizer. I'm the policy and research director at we. The People in Michigan we're are organizing movements building organization here across the state. All right so talk to me about the Michigan Primary Twenty twenty and your thoughts or anything that you want to talk about. Just sort of the the mood out there. That's happening like a week before. We're talking the day after Super Tuesday. What have you been hearing or just? Just give us your thoughts as a community organizer share. I think that we're feeling a little defeated and deflated. It just looks like the Democratic Party is still going to follow through with a lot of the status quo that we've seen and it's a little disappointing Bernie. One Michigan in two thousand sixteen and I I worked for the Hilary campaign and I will continue to say that he would have won. He would have beat trump so the fact that we're doing what it looks like everything in our power so that he's not our nominee is is really disheartening when he is a promise of progress Yes a promise a revolution it seems like a majority of the folks. That are scared of that so for me. I'm really focused on local to be honest and I will do my duty and votes unlike I am worried. Unlike a lot of burn folks might not come out to bow even for for for biting which is essentially why think trump could win again So it's a mixture of disappointment disillusionment and trying to find a route to put my frustrations that's local supporting local folks. I'm running I'm doing my best to really engage us in this race To to give us some hope because right now for a little hopeless before we talk about what you were running for Our people politically engaged since two thousand sixteen. You see a difference in in the Intel. Tell me a little bit about you. Know the demographics of people that you representatives community organized just people get a taste of shares so I believe that there was some skit definitely within the community organizing world Elizabeth. Warren seemed to be the the candidate. That would listen to the folks on the grounds that would take the feedback and run with it so so there was some hope and there a lot more engagement. Now I believe that machines very wait state where seventy percent whites so. When trump wine there was a new in enrage MANSON ENGAGEMENT FROM WHITE FOLKS. Who are like wait. Something's something's going on. How do we get engaged? So People across the northern Michigan are engaging. They're saying no we don't want trump again and and right now it's about who their candidate is right and I'm not really sure who it is for for all of us So it's about that there are people that are being engaged. I think we are very torn within the party The Republicans know who their enemy is the Democrats. The Democrats enemy are the Democrats. So it's a little a little that but there is engagements Seymour about that because people don't see when you hear sort of the split or in the Democratic Party that's those are conversations that are happening in Michigan Amongst Democrats. Can you just say more a little bit about that? And why why are those conversations happening would share? I mean you you kind of have a good sense because you were in the Clinton campaign. Now you're saying you want to be more local like our people. I talk to me about those divisions. What are the? What are the issues why we're very poorly Polarized within the Democratic Party There is what is known as progressive very left. And then there's a moderate which I put myself in the Left Progressive Group and the moderate group is really just as a satis quo so when it comes to immigration when it comes to the criminal justice system we need very progressive policies and progressive push where the status quo necessarily isn't us isn't isn't promising us to to break down. These systems are to invest in things that we need like mental health or regional transit. So it's very polarizing and that's really really disheartening. I think it's keeping us from actually engaging in the first place so I think I always. I'm seeing I'm very mad at the Democratic Party because they all got into a room together the same Republicans until room together and Said who are we gonNA back. Who are we going to be behind? Because having voters played his mind game of. Who's in WHO's GonNa be the nominee that beats trump is not fair. We have other things to worry about and at the end of the day if we vote for this person and nothing changes. What does that leave us with? A leaves us feeling news and abused and just deflated. So I'm really trying to not make any promises about our federal government can do when you look at. What can we do locally? And you are running locally so tell me a little bit about why you decided to be like okay. I'm done. I'm GONNA do this. Why is it important for you? To sort of impact change locally so locally a lot of don't even know about local government swing county commissioners they are essentially our county city council and no one knows who they are what they do. They are in charge of a one point. Six billion dollar budget and that budget affects things like our roads our prosecutor's office the Sheriff's Office and we don't know about that so I'm running to really my race relations education. Though it's do you know who you commissioner is? Do you know that they don't hold meetings publicly accessible to us? Do you know that they have a park trying job? And they get paid sixty thousand dollars. A year in the majority of them are over fifty years old. Who Don't knock on your doors and don't listen to what you have to say. So we've been sodas engaged in sodas solution to by the federal government at this point. We don't even know about our local governments somebody running to change that that narrative. So you running from Wayne County Commissioner. That's district's for a cover southwest. Detroit Lincoln Park in Melvin Dam. And just give me a little bit about your background before we finish up so I just like you grew up in Detroit. Where did you grow up and you know? Why are you here Sarah so I was actually born in Mahyco Puerto Vallarta Mexico? I grew up in south traits. I'm a citizen now and I've never left the city. I I love my community and I grew up surrounded by social justice activist and organizers. And that's that is really my my values lies so I have a degree in social work as well and I'm using my experience. My background my education to serve others. Everyone wants question because I know you. You're talking about progressive because one of the things that I'm finding with Latinos who are following the progressive movement. That they kind of make that connection between Latin America progressivism American progressivism. The left and that Bernie Sanders kind of represents some of that do. Can you speak a little bit? There are people out there noticing that because it feels like. That's being missed in this in this debate. Absolutely and that's feels revolutionary. That's where you see the images of Bernie fighting on the front lines and that's where we feel. It's and that's that's what's exciting so the fact that we are fighting against that momentum and that energy is a little little defeating but again I believe in. I believe there's a reason why they're fighting against it. They know how powerful it is. Thank you so much thank you. Just tell me Your name and your and your background hold on all right. My name is slow Taryn Nella. I'm currently a junior at Wayne. State University studying journalism and economics student journalist. And you're you're you grew up in Michigan. Yes I grew up in Michigan. Grew up in Metro. Detroit my whole life. My mom's a waitress. My Dad is in the car business car salesman so I would say I have a very I WANNA not typical Pretty Working Class family and your background. Just your ethnic background so people so my ethnic background. I'm half Korean. And half Italian My family skirt. My Mother's family escape from North Korea and my father and his whole family there from Sicily. So all right so tell me what the mood is in Wayne State about what you know journalists in your reporting on this and following it so i WanNa Kinda put on your student journalist hat tell me a little bit about Wayne State and what people are talking about. This is primarily engaged..

"Yeah yeah so the there are probably good there any. I mean it would be nice if they had some kind of asset between their own seconds and their own. I that gets kind a harder to calibrate this sometimes. Where but you just don't have marketable like those flyer type young talent like that's the other way you can Greece up deals like this and they just don't have is either? Yeah well they haven't had a first round pick in quite Muslim to be traded most likely guide entirely. That's right it's good to New Orleans. How very interesting situation for them were widely presumed assumed to be a potential seller as they started the season think it was six twenty two but now they actually it could be more likely that they're buyers? Yeah and they they they definitely have the means to make that happen. The PELICANS are fifteen million below the tax and while they do not have a trade exception in the conventional sense they do have a walking talking trade exception. That is Darius Miller. I wrote about this for those. Who are interested at the athletic background when they signed him because it was pretty clear that it was a contract that was signed with the intention of being traded Miller then subsequently got hurt so he is unavailable so it is just straight dead? Salary Miller makes seven point three million this year and then has a fully non-guaranteed seven million for next year so it is that salary and the reason that becomes notable for the PELS is that they're in this area where they could either be in under under a cap team have a modest amount of cap space in twenty twenty or they could go over and going over has a couple of benefits for them most notably. Then you could use the bird rights on Derrick favors. There's one more or both to retain those players and you could use the larger mid level and so for me try using Darius Miller's contract to add a depth piece contentiously with a multi season component would be a huge benefit. Because you're replacing somebody who is not playing with someone who can now one thing that we're going to have to seriously consider it for them is consensual taxi issues even as soon as next year because Brandon Ingram is going to get the Max. His capital is twenty one million. But you're probably better off just pencilling in the twenty nine nine for him that it's GonNa be for the Max I don't see him making it all and be a team this year. But which would really complicate matters. But if you throw in twenty nine million figure for next year for ingrown they're basically right at the CAP gives them about twenty five million to work with blow the tax if they wanna re-sign favors which they probably would think the ready ready to give Jackson Hayes the keys yet as a starting center. Favors is probably not be at least ten million. Maybe even a little bit more than that you would think that might have to go a little bit above above the mid level to get him and then if they wanna use the mid level you're at pretty close to the tax When you consider just having to have some maneuvering room they also have Frank Jackson an and Kendrick Williams as restricted? Free agents probably can manage to bring those guys back you know couple of million dollars a year deals. Should they desire to do so. They're probably GONNA lose each one more in free agency but he has been in the rotation for them. We'll see how Zion changes that because Brandon Ingram presumably will play more three after that. And you know maybe more more is someone who could then be expendable for them so all of that said here just things to keep in mind. What are they need? I would love another small forward on this. His team. Somebody who can play the three another might be the wrong. We're for as small forward on this team. Ingram would they have one right now. It's burning. Yeah and he's I like him better as a four so adding I. I think he's fine is a three hour actually because he can shoot it. Sure but defensively. I think he's in many ways. I like him better on fourth just because he doesn't really use his strength anyway and a lot. The more physical guys ended up actually playing the three as weird as that sounds but yeah can't get through screen which makes it a little more exactly so yeah. That's another reason. I think of them as a four so that would be a great a great place to go in. The pels are still figuring out the rotation so just another piece to fit in. I'd also like to see them get Depending on what happens with favors a sturdy defensive center so Jackson Hase's Bouncy and and I think he has a place in the league but I like the idea of having centers with different strengths and weaknesses. Depending on who you're facing. I think it's still too early. Desire need this guy for Joel embiid or anything like that but just to have somebody who can fill that niche who is relatively close to the age range of this team. That'd be good capable play and the Pelicans depending on how David Griffin sees the holdover players on this roster you how aggressively so you go. After those spots that Defensive Center Day could go on the whirlwind. And just you know us. Darris builders contractors filler and get somebody who can play Taj Gibson I think would be sorta got because they just. They need with favors his. He's always in and out of the lineup. Zion soccer-playing back to backs Meli. You don't know how he's GonNa fit with saying Ryan the I think they wanNA play those guys together Hayes you don't know how he's GONNA fit Zainy. Can't stop anybody. Jill Okeafor never known for his defense. He's got plenty injury problems. uh-huh Kendrick Williams has been out for a tree gains of this back issue so with all that I think that just getting another adult. NBA Big on this team. We'll be important even if that guy ends up being mostly insurance You need insurance when Derrick favors in Zion are. You're starting four and five. And what makes the PELICANS different than a lot of these teams is if there's a parallel here to Oklahoma City when we talk about them about a week ago that if the Pelicans want to use small resources uses to make this happen they can because they have so much so not only do the Pelicans have all their own. Firsts they also have a bunch from day of the Lakers picks and swaps more in the distant future. But then the more important part as a practical consideration. Because I can't think of players that are worth the Pelicans firsts that are really available in season those would be more July. June soon treads. The now is that they have six extra seconds beyond all their own. The Best of those for me are Cleveland in Washington. Twenty Twenty one in Cleveland in twenty twenty two and and dozer pretty desirable picks. They're going to be towards the top as we as we projected right now and teams could be interested in that so they can and they'll they also have have a crap ton of young players who would have interest if they were ready to move on from some of them and remember that the Pelicans this is a big challenge for David Griffin is when they acquired Ingram and ball and Josh Heart. Those were not players in the first. NBA season. Those guys are getting their raises right away Brandon Ingram getting it in a matter of months and then Lonzo and Josh heart art so they need to make decisions on those players quickly and if they don't want to keep them that's totally fine but they can get assets now are in in July also have. DD WHO's playing in Australia. stroz thirty fifth overall pick this year. So they they. They've got a lot of ammo to go. Get guys If they were to move toward more maybe Reggie block is someone that could potentially interest them if they were to move. Jj redick maybe Wayne Ellington would be someone that would potentially interest them. That's another thing too for me with Rettig is they. They really want him as a vet leader. Apparently of course. They're always going to say that until the moment they trade him But he he is an important fit with sign. And that's really the determining how important all these players are assigned Williamson. Did you just don't know that yet. Really Your Belly Williamson Front Court. It's like unbelievable offensively or it may be it just all grinds to halt because you know shooting and you need rettig now the fact that Lonzo an ingram or shooting the ball better makes me feel a lot better about potentially moving on from radic but they want to make the playoffs this year. He's definitely really important. If another Hollinger's in this if another team put like a real I on the table for him than you might have to start to think about it. Would as you consider doing that so if say it was Philly. And they're of the I I that they can trade which I forget what. It is But you know that type of a pick pick you know a projected in the twenties. First Rounder in the next couple of years is that make you WANNA move radic the value of knowing because there aren't that many players at Riddick's level. That are like him. I think that the value of that information is so high that it would probably have to be around that range from me to consider it unless you could like somehow swing that I get landry shamet which in that case then you get younger rettig on cheaper contract. That's I mean. Not The champion. Is that good yet. But he has that kind of profile and I don't think clippers that for the record but I my instinct thing does that. It wouldn't because if it's not now then when and I I can't trust that the next. Jj radical be available in the next year or two so you might as well get that information nation. Now there might be a cost to knowing that but it could be but if you know if you need shooting around sign in the worst way in Griffin has the tools to remake this roster so I don't think they're going to be haunted by missing out on one medium of the road late I in a bad draft. Maybe they could go with one of these seconds. Reckons that are pretty good. And try to Trade Miller and me some filler salary for both block and Ellington. Yeah and that might even make more expendable if someone else wanted to go in that direction just because they just need a little bit more here now maybe not. And maybe that makes radic expendable but writer contracts the same about that. That's a more because they also remember they got out Walker and Josh heart already right who they really are they bring in someone. Who's he's not a pure three out? That really does it for you. And they're getting by with you know playing hard at the three and some of these backup unit. So and they're not the Dallas Mavericks where they're they've already reached a higher level so they need to solve some of these problems now because Dallas is GonNa be in the playoffs and have some expectations. The PELICANS can figure it out this year. And it's not too big a problem. Yes so I mean to be clear I think more likely than not they don't make any kind of a major move from anything else you had A. I mean I think the the move to make the most important to me is just getting that adult. Nba I think that could be if favre's goes down you just you gotTa have that guy you know. They want to be able to not up to play favorites tournaments Kazan's going to get some minutes of backup center but again you know his fragility here as well. They're gonNA ease him along slowly Miller's an easy mechanism for that because of trade matching rules around his salary so it kind of tied dovetails with the conversation. We're having before with Dallas about those guys. That teams aren't super down on zealously holding onto them. So more in that kind of level of conversation rather than the getting a cornerstone because Jackson Haze may be even derrick favors are going to be an Zion. I think he might eh five eventually to those guys are going to be headed this player. In the pecking order. Moving forward in the present to an extent O- one other quick thing. Is there an offer that you think could be on the table for Jrue holiday that make you end that experimentally. I mean he has a player option for twenty one twenty two. He's under contract in full for next year or do you just need to play out that string a little longer. Yeah I mean I think when they were six twenty two. They're thinking about it a lot more realistically. I don't see them even in. This is one of those things again like I was talking about a challenger aware I may be if you really put it out there to the league and you didn't have to worry about anyone's feelings or anything you just be like. Hey you know. Maybe there's some crazy offer here but but it's one of those deals where it probably just never even gets to the point of being talked about and hey you know two first round picks. Is that really happy that much right now. If you're the Powell's I don't think six. Oh and they're they don't have another way to get point guard as good as him. He's excellent defensively. They really need that so no I. I don't see that happening and also seems like one of those things. Where are you going to get that much more from now than in the summer? There doesn't seem to be any contender. That is just GonNa go crazy for him and is going to offer a couple of their late seconds and it's like our late I and it's like all right was what do we need with a so do i. I don't see anything realistic at this point in time. most likely be traded is Miller. Absolutely that's basically what his contract was for. Its catch up on some news here. Mostly injury related but we know that that is important hortensia in Washington. We'll start at the bottom here. React Humira is just doing some light work with trainers and practices doing a little bit of shooting. But I mean that's been a month Dow since that Groin injury and you have to imagine..

"Is what we live and It is different than what it used to be. They're definitely looking at ways is to use space instead of. Just get there so. I think that the conversation rounded as changing a bit. What can you take off of the many satellites that are going to be up there? They're not just in terms of communication but in terms of earth observation in terms of just the amount of data they can get from looking down at the earth from up above Not just in terms of imagery lots of lots of other tracking on the one hand. It seems to me in the business sense. That A lot of this is about a decade later than everybody maybe wants originally thought but then again this is space and things take time and and what's a couple couple of years when you're coming up with a whole New Paradigm For providing services or or human spaceflight and speaking of which next year in two thousand twenty were expected to see Virgin Galactic and blue origin. START PUTTING UP Tourists Pain tourists. Maybe an so. It's it's really like it's not new space anymore. It's it's here I I'm smiling because we've been talking about that for the last two years and this year for the human space but this time it's real and this time it's for real so But we are getting ever closer to it actually being the year. Can you hear that listeners are going on the record. Twenty twenty right. Well we were on the record record twenty nine January. We'll see what happens. I'll just say it's it is when it happens that that will be the year. Okay well the nationals more. We're supposed to win the world series either so so you never know business back in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s when defense was out of Oak with the Big Coast Post court ward. Draw down Laki acquired the Rowan spun off some some pieces of it. Didn't want and guy named Franklin's Lonza and Robert Lapente and Lehman Brothers put those together and created l three communications which became a famously successful company. It's now l three Harris L. Through was acquired by Harris and Mr Lapente Mr Lonzo split up a little. While ago and Mr Lonzo died the panthers added again. Michael You WanNa tell us with this entrepreneur is bringing to us next yeah. He's back one of the yells in L.. Three is grabbing some attention and even grabbing some money So what happened is Mister Lapente Bob. Lapente has gotten together with Marc Gabelli. And that name will sound familiar to some people specifically in the investment sector because He's part of the belly sort of family empire of An investment activities including the G. Research analyst investor. Analyst conference that people know about in the aerospace on Defense World and Bob Lapente Son Rob Lapente is getting in on it now and There are some other people who were experienced back in the l three communications since formation in one thousand nine hundred seven. They're getting together and they have gone public with a special purpose acquisition company. That's called a SPEC. What a SPEC it does? Is it allows entrepreneurs to go out and raise money publicly on the stock market with the intent of forming some company that they will bring forward word in the future and what this back is designed to do is go after C.. Four ISR assets in the business world and try to piece together and maybe make a C.. Eighty four ISR version of l three. Communications became a large publicly held company. They got piece together. Various little assets with technology. The ankle. Okay so you think it's the same kind of model l.. Three was famously. Lots and lots of pieces that were just put together but sort of managed independently is that. That's that's right. It was a a holding company approach to having an aerospace and defense asset and that was a little bit unique For an industry that was For for a very long time founder. Run and Even founder owned in the beginning and then eventually those founder run companies became the large defense primes that we knew about or the the the OEM's on the commercial side and L. Three came along in the nineteen nineties and add this holding company approach where they started picking up business assets on the cheap a and part of the assets. You talked about from Laki. They were getting rid of and that one acquisition that they did. You know that's happening again right now. You're seeing a whole lot of any activity Many of us were at the aviation. Week Emanate Conference recently out in Beverly Hills and The the mood there is very optimisitic. There's a lot of positive talk that while This year and next year may not be record setting by themselves. They are still very close to what our record levels of both transaction volume and transaction amounts when it comes to emanate deals so there's a whole lot of activity out there and in C. Four. SR ARE THESE GENTLEMEN LOPEZ MR belly and others think there's an opportunity maybe for somebody to come in and roll up and put together a large sea for ISR SR company because there are so many fragmented little specialists out there. These boutique companies that do one particular thing or another. And if if you've got the money if you can raise the money and right now that's not really difficult. Believe it or not but if you can raise the money you can go out and buy these things and piece together and Voila. Who who knows? Maybe you've got the next bill three communications last question for you. I mean Missile Penta obviously made a lot of money after he left L.. Three founded a company called one that I think he sold all the saffron for more than a billion dollar correct. So how much money have they said how much money they're gonNA put into this new entrance I don't know for sure how much they're gonNA put into their initial the public offering of what they've raised so far at least one hundred and fifty million based on the IPO. They did at the beginning of November. the thing is is that stock stock is now out there so anyone all of us at the table can get in on it if we want and go by public shares of it and they can continue to raise funds so we'll just have to track the market the cap back and then listen for any announcements and maybe any other investors that come in but at this point is just about anybody who wants to get in on the action can buy a share and a piece of this next company. You know all we know for sure is that once again they've got l. in the name you had l three communications in in the beginning and you had L one identity solutions when Mr Lapente made a second company and now it's l. g. l.. So just be on the lookout for L.. Okay and just to clarify before from the SEC comes running on the street. Nobody at this table. There's GonNa be a defense stock in airline stocks space. The best and companies recovery just had to get that on the record there Michael so there you have it from this week a looking ahead lot coming down at twenty twenty southwest airlines going to make a decision in on whether to diversify its fleet satellites continuing to darken the skies and L.

"southwest" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
"Thirty sevens but the grounding of the seven three seven Max Really made them open their eyes. As to how vulnerable such a strategy could make them What's up there yes? There southwest confirmed that they will be undergoing street a fleet diversification review in two thousand twenty and while they've looked at diversifying away from the Boeing seven. Three seven before this time appears to be more more serious in light of the grounding of the seven thirty seven Max and also which has raised in questions about whether you know? The risks of operating a single fleet type might outweigh the benefits of the adage. Simplicity of operating a single All Boeing Seven 737 fleet This situation could have been a lot worse for South West. Ironically had it happened five years five years down the line from now When the Song Max is is about fifty or sixty percent of south west right now they only have thirty four Grounded Max is still more than any other carrier carrier but They have orders for two hundred sixty four more Most of which are expected within the next five years so it could potentially be a a A very bad situation Very dire situation for south west If something like this happened To An aircraft that was such a Essential part of its fleet and so what other Airplanes might they take a look at well They've talked about the the twenty which would unlock inner routes a smaller Roots and in different kinds of frequencies than they've been able to fly with the seven three seven You know they've also mentioned embraer possibly Egypt's are on the most recent conference call and There's there's been talk about the the eight three twenty neo although although with with the The extensive backlog with at the age of twenty neo. That might be a little more difficult if they were to go that route. But I I think the The eight hundred twenty Seems like it could be a promising. I bet because not only would they be able to take delivery of quicker but it would allow south west to to fly These these these shorter routes. What's that are not really feasible And the a two twenty just remind our listeners was formerly bombarded as C. series. It's a great new aircraft. Airbus now owns owns it Airbus also builds them for US customers in Mobile Alabama so south west. We'll be buying American and the orderbook as you said is nearly earliest full right as the eight hundred twenty. You GotTa wait in line for several years. It might be able to free up a few of those slots but plenty of eight to twenty slots plenty of twenties available earlier right right and also because they're building in mobile They would be able to get away from any possible tariffs that might be Applied to you too Boeing Airbus aircraft. So bad I've heard in the business world some speculation about How real is this examination? The sense of you know. Is it genuine time to review the strategy of just having one horse or is it you know making the best. This is just one more negative headline that helps put a little bit more pressure on. Do we have an indication either way it is for real this time because they have talked about it before supposedly but this this time it seems to have more on to. Yeah no I agree. could be largely a messaging. Trying to message Boeing but but also you know while they have looked at this in the past I they explored diversifying I in twenty eleven most recently. But it doesn't seem like there's time is more serious and There was a company wide Internal e mail that went out from from South West. VP Allen cash or just this week and and he said that if they did pursue another fleet type It it would be likely years before they can put it into service but you know the fact that he's he's sending this internal message out to the rest of the company does suggest. Yes that the you know the the carrier is serious about about diversifying. In honestly I don't see why they would be doing this and making these announcements if they weren't serious about it so But there are southwest is also know there's downsides to s you know the one of the benefits of an all seven three seven fleet. Is You know you. You have a doc. One type of Air Blind and maintain one type of aircraft maintain one type of aircraft to train people on so that's simplicity goes is out the window and you're you're increasing costs and but at the same time as you said Ben Guess you're increasing your ability to fly different kinds of roots with different loads of passengers right. Yeah well the real benefits would be the greater bargaining power with manufacturers. That's that's southwest. I think really wants but also you know in in terms of their network they can maybe do some shorter or longer haul flying that they can't really do right now. With with just the seventy seven and they also mentioned greater fuel-efficiency so there are there are some real benefits Aside from just the you know. The reliance on on Boeing seven thirty-seven Max situation. But yeah like you said. There are some drawbacks in terms of cost in terms of training and and just the flea complexity as far as maintenance in the like so they're going to have to weigh You know weigh. Hey those costs way. The benefits and decide whether relying on on one aircraft in relying on on Boeing Really make sense are or whether those risks are. Are you know something. They're comfortable with moving forward. Yeah I I look at it and as you said Ben if you look at had this happened four or five years down the road and you have an airplane grounded for half a year or more than half a year The airline would have been in serious trouble just to survive if sixty percent of its fleet is suddenly certainly grounded so certainly make sense at the same time you talked about. The e two Boeing is going to own a controlling interest numbers commercial business. And I don't think they're gonNA give business Airbus Airbus without a fight so this is going to be an interesting story to watch As we head into twenty twenty always does well. Let's talk about space. Space X had a big launch. This week that's true launched Sixty Starlink satellites into space. Those are This is kind of the next set of Communication Shen satellites that it's launching it plans to launch thousands of them in. It's really getting out there ahead of everybody else has its own ability to watch these satellites and it's Taking full advantage of that kissed getting out there Um while the regulators are still trying to figure out what to do with the signals. So I was satellites. We're all settled do well as yet not much. But eventually they're going to The should be providing communications around the world helping under served areas Get access to satellite communications Anytime of day or night and having the Internet Access that we all enjoy here in the US pretty easily at least in DC. So that's that's what those will be providing. It isn't alone alone. In launching constellations one web is is an another big provider although it has not want as many satellites as as SPACEX has to date Everybody else's moving a little bit more slowly you know Thousands of satellites my mouth waters with the names of new constellations. We can come up with in the night sky for all these lights that are gonNA fill the darkness at a head above us is. Are we just going to look up and see perpetual well daylight all the time. Jen What do you think that's what people are worried about. That was at the National Academy. It's a couple of weeks ago where they had A series of Ted talks and there was a University of Virginia Professor Kelsey Johnson and she gave a big talk about how she was inspired to become an astronomer by looking up at the night sky and seeing stars ars and now he looks up. She'll see satellites And on twitter people are already Looking up and been sharing pictures of series of startling satellites that they can see Because those aren't very high up in the sky at the right place at the right time you can see him so we've talking about new space so called new space for years reading model for years and it's happening in dribs and drabs but it seems like something's different. It seems like the cork is out of the a bottle. And it's really taking off and there's going back. Is that a correct assessment. Well it's it's Yeah I guess I hesitate to say new space anymore because it is what what it.

"Was their first row structure between San Antonio Dallas and Houston herb was thirty six and in poor paraded Southwest Airlines. And for the next five years they had a hundred and forty three to digital in administrative proceedings. All the way to the US supreme court because three major carriers braniff continental and Texas international colluded to keep this little upstart from ever getting off to ground and the more. They fought the harder Kelleher dug in and it was an affront his spirit of his Galateri -tarian spirit was an affront to democratize in the skies. And if they just left them alone. I'm pretty sure that the south west would have just bleh. Ed money and gone away. But what they did was they they confronted her calendars fierce, competitiveness and sense of idealism. And then Southwest Airlines was born what's very interesting those three carriers are gone today. Right. And southwest is the most successful airline in the world. I am glad they're gone too. They they were not fun to fly on. Now. I will say this is I mean is silly. I grew up in Oklahoma. And I moved to Minnesota about the age of twelve and I remember, saving all my money, all my money. Kevin when I was thirteen years old to fly from Minnesota back to also to visit my friends and the tickets VIN. We're more than they are now true story. So I have a big appreciation for south west because they have dramatically lowered the the cost of traveling everywhere. I mean, the the the prices of flying are so low now, I mean, it used to be something that only the elite. It could do. And now, it's very very affordable. Could you share with from your perspective looking at it and looking at all the data and spinning years researching about the impact you think southwest has made on just the mobility of the average American and the lowering the costs of flying. Yeah. It's one of the things that totally impressed this early on with them. And they you know, they they have really taken that whole cost structure low fares and are low cost to create row fares and made it a cause a noble heroic. 'cause and they would call it the business of freedom. And I'll tell you what that looks like when we were doing research for this. We had a twenty something year old rampage and probably didn't have more than a high school education. I don't remember exactly. But he said Kevin. We don't have statistical significance on this show on. He's looking at the research or right? He's statistical significance, but I can tell you on average that about one out of every seven or eight of these little Disney pull on bags that we put on a belt roader and load the plane comes from a child in a broken home in if we. We don't put these bags on the airplane on time. And we don't turn this airplane back in those days. It was ten minutes. Now, it's more like twenty five. We don't turn this airplane on time. That means that we're going to put more airplanes in the system, which means we're gonna have to find the money to pay for those airplanes, which is going to come out of ticket increases the cost and tickets, and that little boy or little girl is not gonna be able to fly between mom and dad who's geographically separated. And that's an affront to the business of freedom. And I thought my gosh, if the twenty year old rampage in gets it at that level, and they create a critical mass of employees who understand the movement and the cons behind the movement. That is their secret sauce. The that's a very powerful concept. Ten minute turn want to get it on a deep passionate level. That's one thing. That's that's getting a twenty year old employ to being gauge. Yeah. I mean, according to Gallup, they say what sixty seven percent of American employees are not engaged at work you the research. So to get somebody twelve years old to be engaged. That's that's powerful. But then to pull it off. Can you explain how the ten minute turn? I don't think maybe some of the listeners are familiar with that terminology..
