"R. to the filling in for Frank Steve Courtney once again we walking into the Frank Beckman show here on seven sixty W. J. R. we are in the final hour of this fine morning edition and we are going to kick it off with some pretty darn good news for a lot of folks when it comes to us from Mr damn roulette the United States secretary of energy Mr secretary how are you this morning I'm doing great Steve how are you wonderful Sir let me just give us somewhat of an outline here and then we will get to the great news Sir as it applies to our great state of Michigan the department of energy is awarding two hundred fifty six grants totaling fifty three million dollars to two hundred eleven small businesses in thirty five states and the district of Columbia these phase one grants will allow small businesses to research technical feasibility of new innovations that advance the mission of the department now the phase one grants I allude to R. six to twelve months in duration with the median award amount of two hundred thousand and Mr secretary as I mentioned that good news applies to Michigan to the tune of about eight hundred thousand dollars Sir that's correct people were very excited about this this is all part of our small business research and development grant program and these are the companies are to provide the technologies of tomorrow so we're very excited about the work that they're doing any other folks in Ann Arbor folks in Lansing these are great small companies and creating jobs all throughout Michigan and we're looking forward to helping them grow so they can start providing jobs all across America you know Dan I'm sure there are some folks tuned in right now that are you know maybe taken aback but this is great news that the department of energy actually takes it upon themselves to hand out some much needed funds to some folks that really need it that's absolutely true spirit you know we're doing this as part of the the economic recovery and it's it's Michigan opens up we want to be right there step by step with you other important to these are long range goals that we have you know reporter he has a long relationship with the state of Michigan we have a very important laboratory at Michigan State University since twenty seventeen I think we spent perhaps three hundred million dollars plus at that facility we work closely with the auto manufacturers on things like Hogwarts materials of Vance materials new technologies battery technologies for potentially moving to all market to create electric vehicles it's been a very close and very rewarding relationship for us with the department of energy go green that's all I'm gonna say their Mr secretary further more I know there's for businesses in Michigan that will be in receipt of this cash to the tune of two hundred thousand dollars per what was the criteria Dan is to which businesses would receive sure we had a rigorous program internally I mean what we do is we'll just look at the merit you know it's a merit based process that we use but we look at the idea itself when we you know judged on merit and if we look at the presenter of the idea and determine whether or not they can actually execute on the idea that they're presented and then we look at the long term impact of what does it mean to the consumers what does it mean to society what is it that we're trying to do here and after they've met those three tests that we have a group inside America review board that makes the final determination and that's how these four companies in Michigan were selected I'm looking at one of those Mr secretary Nile wave incorporated out of Lansing it involves nuclear energy the project fabrication and testing that Vance feels for lead and sodium cooled fast reactors the summary sodium and lead cooled fast reactors have key advantages including superior heat transfer improved efficiency and compact designs I guarantee it the Mr secretary you won't over here me ever talking about something like this in public this is some pretty advanced stuff it is just a great place to do this the university system of this and is just outstanding yeah and you know the future of nuclear is going to be very very exciting with moving from big giant nuclear reactors as we have seen across the country that's a very small compact we referred to as micro reactors and these are you know reactors that produce maybe a megawatt of power took that's what I'd like to walk you through our very important to our defense community so Michigan is right there at the tip of the spear helping us develop these things with the US department of defense and nuclear energy also is what H. three D. incorporated does out of Ann Arbor there's also another company in Ann Arbor well it's H. three D. again coming through with another two hundred thousand for defense nuclear nonproliferation which is a mouthful in and of itself the bottom line Mister secretary is you know in these challenging economic times it's so wonderful that the fine folks at the department of energy comes through with this well we we would work with it it's very important account may have to re open this president but just yesterday when it was the Detroit we have to get the back we have to get people back to work we have to get back to work quickly and that's why we're we're approaching this is a whole whole of government you know hold government manner so my colleagues at the state business administration a working day and night I talked to the small business administrator we provide it more more loans to small businesses across the country in the last fourteen days in the S. P. A. has provided in the last eighteen years combined so everybody is working overtime to ensure that we get this continent started as I mentioned Mr secretary the beginning of our conversation two hundred eleven small businesses thirty five states as well as the district of Columbia a question here was this something that these various companies were aware that the department of energy had this cash available may applied or Wade were they selected although the these are programs that are ongoing US department of energy so this is what the beginning of a very long relationship though these companies compete for these awards we we we award them on a regular basis are the U. S. department of energy okay if anyone is interested in applying go to energy dot com and we have all the information available for you all right well thank you so much for everything you do they're Dan we certainly appreciate it you know I know these businesses that we discuss the four here in Michigan much better off you know any day you get an extra two hundred grand that something good and I'm sure it's gonna be put to good use that set up a great deal with the state all right Dan take care and have a wonderful wonderful holiday weekend you.

O. J. Howard so there it's going to be interesting he's got some weapons there's no doubt about that and this is a guy that can torture well the fact of the matter is the Buccaneers a one dimensional offense because the running game is nothing special nothing special at all no but they will air it out as often as it takes yeah it's it's interesting make they come at you and this is the National Football League today Steve it's what can your quarterback due to the opposition and what can you do to the quarterback there get nasty others no doubt about that that's one thing that the lights are really good after be worried about is what that Tampa front does against a let's face it a patchwork offense of line from alliance perspective no question and since number nine Matthew Stafford went down with the back situation this alliance offense generating a meager sixteen point six points per game that being said David Blau the rookie out of the university of Purdue will be making his third National Football League start let me just say this had a chance to have a conversation with David Allan park on Friday you'll hear that conversation coming up as the countdown continues a here's relishing this opportunity not the way he wanted it modular because of injury but you know what he is focused he is excited he's very very positive and you know what he's portable tape together well he is an evil eye again Steve I think one of the double the use for this year and there are many W's later on the the score board or or otherwise what I really like what coach babble has brought to the table he's kind of tailor made his offense of game plan to work around the lawyer as opposed to have the player working to his system and I I think that's a really been a good look for the twenty nineteen to trade lines where we say that the alliance have been bit by the injury bug were just not as they say Whistlin Dixie seven officers starters from week one will not be available for the still with the Buccaneers you know the drill inactives come out at eleven thirty there could be some more significant names on that list there it will sure with the word becomes available meanwhile the beat goes on we're gonna find out even more as to what's going on with our lives today we are two hours away from kick off at Ford field for a preview of today's lions today here's neck riding the lines the Buccaneers are getting ready to square off for the fifty eighth time in NFL history and Detroit leads the all time series thirty one to twenty six and well this season hasn't gone as planned head coach Matt Patricia is still trying to improve this year we're just trying to get better this week we got a lot of young players out there that are trying to get better and certainly for us I think every season is a process I think every season you start over in the NFL that's something that you know I learned a long time ago each team is is different from year to year there's always changes that are involved there and you try to get to do the best job we can to to build and those guys that are you kind of your core players that you know stay with you you hope they improve and they can grow as leaders in town you know build off of them that's really what we're trying to do so for us is just building offensively for Detroit they'll be without Marvin Jones junior who was put on injured reserve this week with an ankle injury Jones is tied for second in the NFL and touchdowns with Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin and one behind teammate Kenny gala day for the league lead but quarterback David Blau says it's next man up yeah you know it's it's a bummer from our he's had a great season it's frustrating for him and you know it's the next guy up and then we'll be ready to go with whatever we get out of work to to move forward and you know keep keep on our goals whether it's been running backers quarterback inside and you know we've we've had to go next man up a lot this year and there's been a lot of guys who stepped up and and we'll try to some extra Bucks come into today's game with a top three offense in the league and a bottom three defense they're also carrying a three game win streak in the Ford field but why in center Frank rag now says his team is still focused on one thing I want when I mean.

"First time in twenty nineteen of course, dick Hafner leading off each hour with the news. Thank you, Richard. We appreciate it. W as our news director. Steve Courtney sports director he's back after resting up after wild lions season. Nice to have you back where you belong to dub. Good morning, everybody. John Bailey, keeping an eye on the roadways and slippery conditions out there extra cold or at least feeling extra cold at thirty degrees. Not that far off from yesterday. But the high today is going to go down this thirty s now should be the high. But we were talking about only being in the upper twenties for the high for today. We'll see where it goes from here. She is program host, and and senior producer helping all the producers with all the show. She's our executive producer AM Thomas. Good morning. Good morning. And I you just have the Sears story. Why is it dick that I remember Eddie Lampert in a not wholly positive way? You remember sure when he took overseers as the savior, and then it became obvious. It was probably just a pretty good real estate deal. Yep. You remember that? I sure do. And now he's trying to come back again or has for a day as you put it as the as the white Knight saving them again. I think it with all of the problems that we've watched Sears and KMart go through. I think he's done pretty well. Yeah. He he's not broke. He's he's built he's a billionaire, and it looks like he's still wants to make more money out of the shell of what Sears is shell of what it used to be. He's got a bit in in front of the bankruptcy. Just stuff gets complicated. He's got one bid to save the company he has to put up money one hundred twenty million dollars by the end of the day today to the bankruptcy judge Robert drain who's hearing this case and. It's complicated because it's part of an auction. So we're not really gonna know for a while. Whether this bid is going to be something that will save what's left of Sears or not the judge has to examine it rule on it. But the judge said yesterday in court that he thought this was a very good development. Interesting. Well, and there's nothing wrong with a seventy making money doing whatever, they do know. Absolutely, totally legal. We should go in with eyes wide open. Meanwhile, we should all if we have sons and most of us do go in with eyes wide open with what's coming out of the American psychological association. Who have basically said with their latest study that masculinity is toxic in itself. The very nature of being a man or a boy for our younger ones is toxic. And that's a sad sad note. You look this up and then you'll shudder. The American psychological association. I think they probably want to be like the American Medical Association, but they're not and with all due respect. And they it's basically calling masculinity toxic the way I understand that. I have not read the entire report, but bits and pieces of it have been featured to me, and it's it's the old. You know, boys will be boys are bad. The shrinks are saying that males are thinking. But yeah, they don't even address the testosterone emergency as it's been called in some circles, the leveling off of of testosterone in men and boys has fallen drastically over the last several years. Nobody's really gotten into that. Because I suspect people like the people in the American psychological association feel that's a good thing. Well, there's only one point three. Million products on the market now. Too, correct. Yeah, they should be able to fix that with products. We even reading this now. Yeah. Well, this is the craziest thing I've ever seen. I thought maybe you'd feel that way. I mean, really. I know you've done well with Brian your son, Brian. He. The other Brian your other son holder son Brian in the booth there. It's just crazy. It is crazy. I'll leave with listen to the lead though, according to the American psychological association being a traditional man is now considered on par with a mental disorder. Are you kidding kidding? I'm not kidding. That's not right. It worries me tremendously for anybody sending their kid. I mean, a lot of our kids at certain ages. And a lot of us at certain ages might need a little help therapy rental therapy. A little, you know, reset reset and maybe just some positive reinforcement. You're not gonna get it from those people. Oh, boy, you're a guy. We've got a lot of work to do. That's dangerous. Terry these dangerous. That same day on a happy note. Starbucks has a new cinnamon shortbread lot. Will that be the pumpkin spice of winter had that it will you're gonna love this masculine? It's not nothing's very masculine anymore. And if and if you are going to prison anyway. Nothing says Valentine's Day, quite like chocolate and champagne, and guess what? Dove Mars own stuff now dove has combine the two with the launch of dove hearts pink champagne and milk chocolate swirl for Valentine's now, you're talking. I thought you would like the best thing ever. That's a good thing. It only thing would have made it better ship. It was dark chocolate because it's better for you. That's right.

"Well. So you can expect to see a healthy dose of Jalen Smith and Layton Vander ash at that linebacker spot. And that's this addition of charting the opposition. I'm Chris Renwick. It's time for another page of the NFL notebook. Steve courtney. So last week the Kansas City Chiefs take care of business knocking off the San Francisco forty Niners thirty eight twenty twenty-seven there at beautiful airline stadium. And all of a sudden you've probably heard Patrick Mahomes has become the toast of the National Football League in that tilt with the forty Niners. He had three touchdown passes all of those coming in the second quarter. But the bottom line is this he is now on the record books. He has thirteen touchdown passes setting a record for the first three games of an NFL season. Who was the previous record holder. Well, that would be Denver's Peyton Manning. He had the old record of twelve that set in two thousand thirteen the bottom line. Here is Patrick Mahomes is showing a lot of promise. There's no question about it. The former quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, Alex Smith now with the Washington Redskins, it appears as though the move by the chiefs to bring the homes in as the starter and Alex Smith moving to the reds. Gins a deal that has worked out for both teams. Let's take a look at the number showy right now you've got the chiefs at three and Mahomes, completing sixty six point seven percent of his passes eight hundred ninety six yards. That's two hundred ninety five yards per game those thirteen touchdowns. And here's the thing about Mahomes early season zero interceptions quarterback rating, by the way of one thirty seven point four. Now what we've got looming for the chiefs in a true test. They have got the Denver Broncos on the road, Monday night football. That'll be great viewing. What does Alex Smith doing what the Redskins while? It's not all that bad right now the Redskins at two and one and Smith completing sixty eight point eight percent of his passes seven hundred sixty seven yards. Let's do the math carry the zero that's two hundred and forty five point three yards per game. Now, he's throwing four touchdowns. And he has thrown one interception. His rating though is one zero two point two. I think Redskins fans. Are very happy with the way Alex Smith has performed so far in our nation's capital, by the way, the Redskins on a BI week. So we shall see. That's NFL. I'm Steve Courtney. Here's the fantasy football report with Shawn baligian. Cowboys prepare to host the lines with.

"Put. All this behind this one in three preseason. Record and look forward but let's do it with Mike. O'Hara, Detroit Lions dot com. Mr. Steve Courtney oh right lions fall hard to the Cleveland Browns thirty. Five seventeen last night normally the fourth and final preseason tilt reserved for those, fighting. For their NFL lives well head coach Matt Patricia general manager Bob Quinn taking a look, at that film. From last night perhaps through the preseason, going to have some decisions to make as the lions the rest of the NFL trimming their rosters, to fifty three by four o'clock tomorrow afternoon that's where we start, the conversation MO. Better not a pretty night for the honourable blue and silver no it wasn't at all it's not the way you want to. Launch yourself into the regular season just Never in the. Game down twenty five nothing have problems getting players in and out of the game. Colin, timeouts that, never, looks, good at, it never is good and really saw pattern in the preseason, three of those games you know big deficits just not not in the game. Just had it taken away from him early and had a rally just to make the. Score respectable he did a week ago win. Again the Tampa Bay thirty three to thirty fourth quarter. Rally, but it just it. Just wasn't good well right from the get-go as a matter of fact. Conversely Lines nation got a chance to, see Baker Mayfield up close and personal now this kid, Mike first round first election overall I thought he was very impressive first. Play from scrimmage he finds Devon could. Use forty one yards and it was chunk yardage from that point on it seemed. Yeah certainly was he he he looks like an NFL quarterback selling somebody that. After, ten or fifteen years trying to find one quarterback and falen Cleveland Browns, really have three right now. Tyrod Taylor, is gonna start the season Baker Mayfield you're going to be playing the next fifteen years and then. Drew Stanton the old lion Michigan state or who is sitting there number three quarterback. And they're, gonna keep. Him as a mentor for a. Couple of years so they're in pretty good shape there and he looked like a good young team. Just just what you wanted to land, so look like last night as we discussed in the, pre game last night Mike as far. As, who's going to back. Up number nine here in. Detroit Matt castle Jake rude I Not good. Sir Neither one of. Them looked good I've, been, castle look okay starting out at least he threw the ball downfield and he was four for. Six for sixty four yards in the. Night was over he was four for eleven for sixty four yards with a touchdown for the other team that he directly rushing defensive end who made really. A terrific play you don't see, that very often, but, you know I, it's to me it's going to be hard on merit, to separate out goes to to, be the backup whether it's j. Khuda coups has almost no experience playing in the National Football. League and castle this is fourteenth year and really started played more than. One hundred game so probably that ensure that experience will win the job for castle that certainly nothing he did on the field, in, this preseason Mike perhaps somebody who made a case for themselves running back to, Wayne Washington Zach Senator went down with injury in. The first, quarter so Dwayne Washington did yeoman's work finishing, with One hundred ten yards from scrimmage and a touchdown I'm, just wondering if you take a look at that. Lions offensive, backfield wasn't enough for Dwayne Washington I think it was an uphill battle for him and and I don't know that he's gonna make based on last, night that, just you know he was running pack available and and and you got time and maybe he put enough on. Tape, as they say to you know to catch the eye of another. Team if he gets cut and ends up getting. Picked up by another team I I just don't see where he sits on this team right, now All right now the lions after the rosters, Kim to, fifty three will have their sights set on the New York Jets Monday night football a week from Monday night as a, matter of, fact kick a seven ten our countdown by the way getting underway at four when you take a look back. At, this preseason Mike and let's just put our cards on the table Not very impressive not very impressive at all I guess, you wipe the. Slate clean a move forward You know Matt Patricia comes out last week and says. It's a process and. We, know. The process is, ongoing that's what we know oh absolutely and you look you're gonna have your number. One offense out there with Matthew Stafford against the Jefferson the only guys I saw defensively, who really get playing time last night where Sean Robinson That'll, and and the new guy will here with, linebacker they're gonna trade last week with the San Francisco. Forty Niners and it. Looks, like. He made a, couple of plays for the rest of it was just it was just backups guys. Fighting for roles and and really job so you know they get their guys in there It'll be much better much better performance but the thing about defensively they had one sack the whole preseason or maybe they got another one last night maybe a statistical sack Christian Ringo yeah Christian Ringo. John Paul and, George didn't get to the quarterback Well played To, do that but good that you had your sense of humor after all. Of, this well that's one thing on the cover of the. Detroit Lions you develop And. One thing for sure Mike the adage it's only preseason no longer applies they. Count from this point, on, we'll, be in touch they're. Gonna change it's gonna change it's all going to be good, in.
