Reviewing the August Traffic Stats - It’s Not Great
"That puts us a roughly a week past the end of August weird things we found. Our. Stopped getting better. As the. Is. Is the way to put it. So you know from the low on the twelfth of April we've seen a rise in traffic levels and we ended the month of August. Forty, five percent. Of Twenty nine hundred. August twenty nineteen. As far as commercial traffic levels were concerned. So. Not Great. Know things things flattened out We've talked about keeping an eye on things hoping that the summer would lead to a bit stronger recovery and then pushed through into fall. We haven't seen the traffic in at the beginning of the fall schedule materialize, and so there's a good chance that week over week, we could see traffic fall throughout the rest of the year outside of spikes for for certain holiday period if people decide that they're going to be traveling again but we don't know what that's. GonNa. Look like as as the as the season develops but August you know. Flattened out and not in a great way, and then the holiday weekend we just had here the states is past weekend traffic almost eclipsed a million passengers screened in the US for the first time since. March sixteenth were dropped off quoits amazingly beyond that. It went from one point two million. Passengers screened on March sixteenth to just basically a quarter of a million. A week later. So getting up to a million would have been at least some semblance of what we use folic victory person bollock victory. We are not there yet. We have here in New York. We have twice as many people riding the subway. Than we have the TSA screening passengers nationwide. Now yesterday the Tuesday after the holiday weekend that were seven, hundred, four, thousand passengers screened, which is just about right back where we were before the holiday weekend. So this is typically rather. Low part of the year between the end of the summer and really Thanksgiving here in the US than the the holidays toward the end of the year for the entire world. So this is GonNa be. Great the next few months, and we're already seeing if you wear pare back their schedule quite dramatically to match that new reality that the the comeback is not happening. Yeah the the return of. Travel, besides leisure travel. So so business travel. And folks moving around outside of taking. A vacation visiting their their friends and relatives. That's not materialized. Travel is still nil and so. What we're going to see over the next few months I think is going to reflect that especially us. Europe a little different. Asia quite different as things there have have gotten much better much faster. But I I think we're still globally nowhere near two thousand and nineteen levels and won't be for some time. The other things being affected are aircraft deliveries. We got those numbers this week as well and and looking at Airbus Boeing numbers Airbus thirty nine deliveries one order which was Jason. Ordering his new. Ac a three twenty neo. Price finally come down enough where I can get my own pint. Yeah and then bowing delivering thirteen aircraft but taking eight orders. That's interesting. who were the eight I hadn't heard that they picked up five, seven, three, seven Max orders and they picked up three triple seven F orders l. were those the Polish airline ordering the matches that we talked about last time in addition to so there was the yes enter air, and then there was one other I think there was an airline that order one of them and and which airline was, but we may have talked about that in a previous episode plus the three triple seven f orders but moving up but still not I mean I was actually did putting things together for the show I. Put in you know Boeing August deliveries, and a Reuters article from last year came up and they are talking about how how orders deliveries were down forty percent. Already. And I was like Oh. That doesn't seem terrible and then I looked at the date and it was September. Twenty nineteen it finally they knew. Yeah. So not not great still not great. But we are there are some glimmers of hope just now a few minutes ago adult seven, six, seven, four, hundred that had been stranded in not one joe. China after it had interior modifications done Kinda got stuck there just took off back heading. East after two hundred and four days of sitting on the ground there looking derelict. So that's about that. That's nice. I'll take what I can get

How to Use Crystals & EOs Together
"I'm here with Haley Crowley who's the founder of whimsy and wellness? Haley. Believes in making wellness, simple, lighthearted and fun four years ago. She began making these really beautiful essential oil labels as a way to distract yourself from wondering when she would get pregnant again, armed with a silhouette cameo machine and a roll of vinyl. Haley sold the first whimsey and wellness products out of a tiny oetzi shop since. then. She's grown into a full family business with three kiddos running circles around her desk. Haley, on a mission to help people use crystals and essential oils in their every day life and make it fun in the process. Haley. Welcome to the show or so glad you're here. Thank you so much for having me I. Love Envisioning Your Kids just certainly on your on your desk because I have to myself. Just today we were packing up, you know mailers, sit out and just chilling out, help me stuff envelopes and it's fun to have a family business and it's also very chaotic. So I imagine you use some oils now and then to keep it calm. Yeah that's exactly right I. mean they're helping with like air quotes helping it really. Twenty Times longer but it's good they feel so important. Yes. Well. You said that you started making your beautiful pretty labels to distract yourself from wondering when you wouldn't get pregnant again is that part of your story tell me more about that yeah. So I started using oils actually as a way to like sent Christmas gifts like the that I was making I wanted to find a natural way to sent them, and so that's what started. Me With oils and then fast forward a couple of years. It was after our second miscarriage and I was like, I need something to do. I was in between jobs at the time and so I was like I'm GonNa. Just start this little at seaside thing to give me something to do and maybe bring a little bit of income like on the side for our family. And after a couple of months because we were one of the first essential accessory shops, it just took off and it just kept growing and growing and I kept working and it kept growing was that that was in two, thousand sixteen. So. Been Four Years Yeah and my husband now works fulltime with me and it's just getting more than I ever imagined. That's awesome. Well, this is not the topic of our interview today I want to get to crystals and oils soon, but I couldn't help it just pick up on the fact that you were using your side hustle a little bit as a therapy. You know let me need to distract myself I need to do something I just relate to that so much when I became a mom I really struggled with postpartum depression and doesn't that transition into parenthood was like a huge shock for me and along can of worms and long story we won't. Get into. But when I started, it was partly the reason besides from just sheer financial need that I started my business and it made me feel so much better. It made me feel like I'm pouring myself into something. It's mine. It's an outlet gifts. Me Gets me talking to other people it just really saved me away. So just related to that that aspect for she absolutely, and just what you said, I talk about that too like I felt like Lynsey wellness gave me purpose kind of like what you said like it gives me purpose and at the time I didn't think I was GONNA. Feel that until you know I, had a baby or babies but. With us it's crazy. It's almost the opposite, but it says such similar feelings. It's really interesting. It's funny. How per I? Mean we I think we are capable of having multiple purposes in one lifetime and even. More than one at the same time and sometimes that's what I need. I need more than one thing happening or I go crazy. So. Yes. Well, how did you start using crystals and essential oils together? Yes. So after I had seen wellness, we started with bottles and labels and. I was looking at product. I don't know what I was looking at but somehow I stumbled across these premade perfume blends and I saw on them. They had the roller top instead of it being like glass or stainless steel. It was made out of a gemstone a crystal and I was like, that's so cool like I want that for my customers who I know don't want to buy the perfume, they put their own oils in it. So I searched and searched and searched for so long five or six months to find a supplier. For these to offer them and it was so hard to find one without a little hole in it because all the stones at that size were spacey right and so I finally found a supplier and was hand making those on my couch watching TV at nighttime and everybody loved them. So I went to Tucson is the world's largest gem and mineral show that they hold once a year. I went there in search of a supplier that could make these for me because I couldn't do it myself anymore. And I didn't find that. But instead, I saw these giant piles of tiny crystals. And I was like those would fit inside of a roller bottle right and I had seen other people do that again in their own blends house like I wonder if people would like that as an option to and so I had no idea if people were actually going to like it but I was like well, I have to get something while I'm here I came all the way here. So I bought them and carried them in my carry on backpack and got stopped at security. But I think they're used to it because the gem show, but it was just so funny I'm like anyway. When? Oil Convention you know all TSA agents are like Oh yeah. There must be another oil convention that's. Smelt. Exactly yeah. They're used to it with the crystal show and so anyway fast forward to now everybody really loved that and just along the way I started of course learning more and more about crystals and just kind of doing my own research I feel like when I started this, there wasn't a ton of research like information out there about using oils and crystals together. So I felt like I just kind of research from a Bunch of different places in kind of put together my own I own research, my
Should More Airline Passengers Be Screened for COVID-19?
"Let's start with you. Testing passengers already is taking place in parts of Europe. You WanNa tell us a little bit about it. Yeah, it's something that that several allies working on. CICULAR. Lifthansa has set up a testing center well to in fact, the the big one is in Frankfurt. They've teamed up with a biotech company and they're referring PC tests, which I believe are the most accurate test at the moment available to tell whether a passenger has grown virus not so that referring rapid results on those tests. In a bid to to help passengers meet the requirements of countries that do now need that testing for arrivals and all say justice source of health. Confidence travelers want to night that getting on board that plane. Infecting anyone on that journey. So tell us how it works. Mean you're saying people get tested before they leave or do they get tested when they arrive in Europe or is it? A combination. It's Jam The government has recently at the beginning of August broten a requirement for PC tests for arrivals from certain countries I consider. So in that situation, a passenger arriving from one of those countries can get straight off that plane and get tested at the airport with results or if a passenger wants to travel to a country that requires negative test for entry, they can do that at the moment. You you you. Can. You guess a link when you book your ticket with tons, you get a link, an information about the country you're traveling to. And then you can put your test online and up with your hiding and get tested at the Apple. They will have a sloth, a citizen. Munich, and natural to other. The Anna An and considering other in. Germany. They want to to set up this tax bill T. You just use the phrase rapid results. But when I read your story can take as long as six hours to get those. I think if you can pay for the fast-track two to three hours but yeah, it's not it's not. That's one of the things when I spoke to you lift answer for this article, they did talk about how they hope that. You know the the the the time it takes to get results his it's games beginning foster and foster obesity. That's six hours is still quite long time to add onto your Johnnie if he wants to do that when you arrive at the apple, but these tests seems to be evolving all the time. And if it's if you pay extra, you can get in as little as two hours, correct yeah. That's great. So do these tests cost and who's paying for them. Are the passengers paying for them or is the airline paying for? The let's take the example of Frankfort. The the standard speed test is fifty nine euros on the fast track test one, hundred, thirty, nine years. But if you're a passenger arriving from one of the at risk countries, the German government is is taking taking on both the charges. So that's free of charge for the passenger when they go to the testing center. Okay, not not a bad deal, Ben. Let's hop over the Atlantic to you. Are there similar efforts afoot in in the US. Efforts in the US today have been very minimal. I. Think. A lot of that has to do with the lack of federal government involvement both the TSA. Customs and border. Patrol have been a very hesitant to to really dip their feet into this testing issue. They've sort of adopted a the government in general has adopted sort of hands off attitude pandemic. You know they haven't even. Gone ahead and enforced mask wearing or You know done anything on temperature screening so Sort of behind the ball in the United States. Interestingly the State of Alaska actually did did try to implement a wide scale testing at its airports and the way that worked towards. These were free pc artists on site at the eight Alaskan airports that receive out of state arrivals. So you could show up in Alaska get a free pr on site and then you go in. So in socially is or self quarantine until the results became available at which point you would submit to an online portal and after a week or two to state would actually have you come back and take another test to to double check to verify. that. You don't have it. So That policy however actually as of August eleventh that change the state of Alaska is no longer offering free tests at airports because if some logistical challenges involved. With that whole process. Now, what they're doing is they want you to submit A test or prove that you have taken a test with seventy two hours of your departure to Alaska But that's a little difficult too because you know the timing is sort of up in the air it might take. It might be that you take a test within seventy two hours. But you don't have a result. So you arrive in Alaska, you can show them. You've taken the test, but you can't produce a negative result So then you still have to go in quarantine and then they still have to follow up with you and it becomes Really sort of an administrative headache and I think they've run into some challenges are trying to implement this on a wide scale in

Sir Doing Great I just came back from the corner liquor store. So that was that was my big trip of the week so. That's not So my question for you is Muscatel thunderbird. You know I find that ripple tends to be a highly underrated wine of a fine vintage So sometimes, night train sometimes ripple. We used to get when I was in college was on the debate team we'd travel and we were poor. So we would get mad dog twenty, twenty. Oh. Yeah. Oh my God that was. Nasty. Nasty stuff. Our guest. This week is actually somebody does know about Travel Robert Cole. He's a strategist. He's a consultant and he knows a whole lot about the hospitality industry. Welcome to the show. Sir Well, it's great to be here. Big Fan of the show longtime listener first-time Gust so. I'm surprised we haven't on your head you on the show before. Creek Chris was saying is on show you know seventeen hundred total. So I figure hey, I made the top two thousand. What the heck this show. That's true to something. Right. Now, that's very pleased to be here. All right. Well, let's get onto some news stories. spud brought us this one. Gun seizures at airports are up threefold. And I don't think there's a fold increase in travelers going through airports. So. What do you think is the reason for this we went up from five point wh. Why should say it per capita thing I think. So it's fifteen point three guns. Every million passengers screened in July compared to five point one per million in two, thousand nineteen. So the rate has gone up. I don't think it's an absolute increase what thinks the reason will you got to protect yourself from? The? COVID? Vaccine? Virus. Roller. Arms or definitely the way to go there. I mean it's the TSA which you know brought this up has a great instagram account where they like to. Show Hey, here's all the guns. We got this month. and. The picture that they have on this one is you know it's every picture of a gun is so postage-stamp because there's so many they just the for whatever reason it's gone way up they don't speculate on why but they are quick to remind you. That civil the civil financial penalty for bringing an unloaded gun to check point is two thousand and fifty dollars and it starts at forty one hundred dollars if the gun is loaded and actually TSE's. Instagram site, you'll find out that most of them are loaded. Usually and carry on luggage. They're not necessarily there patting the person down. Yeah, you're actually allowed to take the gun in A. You know in a check luggage you have to pay. You're flying obviously, right. But. These are people who brought them in their carry on luggage and just thought, Hey, I'm a gun on what's the problem here? And apparently, they're folks who clearly don't fly that often or don't pass the sat very often.
TSA finds more guns in carry-ons, despite lower passenger volume
"Are beginning to fly again. Following a drop off due to the covert pandemic. The essay says They're seeing an increase in violations of passengers with guns and carry on bags across the country, say says there's been a 300% increase in the number of guns loaded and unloaded founding Pastor carry on bags of checkpoints this month versus the same time last year, Despite the fact passenger loads are down 69% mark. How would say public affairs says they're still putting data together as to why this is happening? But some trends are clear. There's been Gun sales over the last few months, so I don't know if that's directly attributable, but across the board we we've seen, you know, even with this lower volume, we're seeing more firearms coming to checkpoint l A X on ly. Five guns found the checkpoints last month, but Atlanta by comparison, had 27 gun discoveries, officials were working to see if there's a correlation between the violations.

Feds clash with Portland protesters again
"Now we all know that Donald trump has a thing for dictators and each time he praises leaders men who he has called. Good friends trump exposed and apparent autocratic envied that foreshadowed what we are seeing happening right now in Portland, Oregon we're on Friday thousands of protesters, including the wall of MOMS and a wall of. Of veterans standing in solidarity with black lives matter we're met by federal agents who fired pepper balls and deployed tear gas to disperse the crowds for two weeks now federal officers wearing military style, camouflage and helmets have been patrolling Portland with batons and tear-gas, driving around in unmarked vehicles, sweeping up and detaining protesters in a way that Oregon's own attorney general says resembles abductions. This ladies and gentlemen is trump's secret police. Federal agents igniting chaos in the city led by a democratic mayor who was also tear-gas by US agents this week. According to trump, he's simply trying to quell unrest. In other words, he is clinging to the image of the law and order president as his approval ratings continued tank borrowing from the playbook of the dictators. He's so admires. will go into all of the city's Eddie of the cities we're ready will put in fifty thousand and sixty thousand people that really know what they're doing. Then they're strong tough, and we could solve these problems so fast. Joining me now is in Applebaum staff writer at the Atlantic and author of twilight of Democracy Renee, Graham columnist and associate editor at the Boston Globe. Sarah Kinzir scholar, authoritarian states, and all of hiding in plain sites and Philip he goes of the center for Policing Equity Thank you guys for joining me and I'm going to start with you. We are living in a world where secret police are detaining protesters without probable. So. If you look out on the nation, you will note across the chasm a lot of steering thing we try to tell you and you really touch on some interesting things in your piece in the Atlantic I loved it and you say that Donald Trump's authoritarianism is a form of politics that reached new heights. And you compare this what we're seeing in the landscape to Russia explain that to me. So. Thanks I think the important thing to understand about what trump is doing is that these are not tactics designed to solve the problem? Why is he sending customs and Border Patrol Coastguard Tsa. Officers into American cities these are people who don't have training and riot control who aren't used to dealing with political protests, and whose main goal seems to be to create more chaos. Of course, this isn't full on dictatorship. Resting the mayor or conducting mass arrests are putting thousands of people in jail for what he is doing is creating pictures. That are designed to show other Americans. How tough he is! So the fact that these men are wearing men and women maybe are wearing camouflage. They look heavily armed. They're wearing. Face Masks this is designed to show and kind of act out dominance. Look were pushing back against the liberal America the. Urban America the chaotic in America that. You're all afraid of and this is how we're going to win the argument. This way of using troops and using photographs of violence is something that we have seen in other authoritarian states. particularly in Russia where. Putin in twenty, thousand fourteen. Used pictures of violence to imply that the democracy movement in Ukraine was really some kind of Nazi fascist uprising, and that he was then putting it. Is, this is a tactic. We've seen US in other parts of the world, and we've already seen the photographs and footage of this be used in campaign. So that really punctuates your Article Philip. I want to turn to you because one thing that concerns me about. This is the experience that black and Brown people have when we encounter police so attorney general bill bar has said that in these new cities that the police officers are going to be clearly identifiable. I don't know that that makes it better. Considering that when black people encounter police there three times more likely to be killed in Chicago there six times more likely to be killed whether you make this. Yeah amp put it exactly right. These are not here. These troops are not here to make anything better. They're set up. In camouflage, which by the way they're not blending into any urban environment with those uniforms. To make the folks who are protesting who had been almost entirely peaceful important up until this point. Make them fear that there's going to be some kind of forceful, physical violent, a reaction to their peaceful expression of their rights and the thing I want to understand is this is over the objection, not only of the mayor of the US Attorney Attorney General the governor of local law enforcement as local law enforcement has been trying for the last seven eight to figure out how dare legitimacy at trust of New York, and this is explicitly not helping

He looked over at me and he said Daddy. Can we go home. I am bored. I go yes yes we can. Actually I don't know what the fuck was going on in that movie and it makes me sad and here's why Robert Downey Junior. There is now becoming Johnny Depp. Where you get a taste of you do these gritty independence and people love it but nobody really really sees it right? Nobody's seen that movie. And I know this when you ever you tell somebody same with you. Tell somebody I am acted as much movies which ones and I haven't seen that one that one never heard of that. I've never seen that one. I get tired of it right. I say if I have to tell you you you don't know you don't know so let's just pretend I'm not an actress okay. So here's what happens. Then you do a ironman sharp. Are you the biggest movie star in the world. Get a taste. Yeah you want everybody known your Ding Dong Ding Dong. Yeah so so. Therefore after that once he leaves the ironman franchise in the Marvel Universe and all that Shit. What do you do have to that? You GotTa do. Something massive is. Is this budget for do one hundred and seventy five million dollars and he decides to play a character like Gotcha like Johnny. Depp wants. Pirates of the Caribbean. You GotTa do Charlie and the chocolate factory fucking murder and we are. Yeah and then you have to play this character. That's a character you know. It's like man Robert. Downey junior is one of the finest actors we have. He does not have to play a character every one of the movie at a British accent except for him he decided to go with a Scottish brogue. That was unintelligible. I don't know the choices for wardrobe. inhere those were did not make a lot of sense to me and if he watched the first five minutes of the movie when he talks to the guerrillas asshole. And that's real you will understand. I was on He was talking to him in a monkey voice and they were playing chess together But then he was talking to to assholes yet the the guerilla turned around and was like farting all over the chess pieces. Oh the whole thing was a disaster and I hope he does not go down the road of Johnny Depp. Where hey man? The only thing that's GonNa get you off anymore is is being in these two hundred million dollar movies doc. Look like a fucking idiot. That is sad because he is in my opinion. One of the greatest actors of two girls and guys one time China's master class from from day. One Johnny be good. He was the best actor of all time and nothing could fuck and take that away from him. Even sleeping in a child's bed high on coke. I mean nothing except for a bunch of money over. Oh the only thing that can mess with him is a shit ton of money and a lot of fucking time man. So it's a shame when I saw it. Oh just like here. We go starts. The phase of your life were because if he likes because of this bomb like he started doing drugs again and make cool gritty dramas.

Another complaint, you often hear from TSA agencies are real complaints that they filed with their bosses you watch stress try being America's last line of defense against nail clippers. Thank god. Here's another complaint. Guys that twinkle in there. I during Pat downs. That's a complaint enjoying it. A little bit too much. It's never Scarlett Johansson types or get picked for the random searches. That's a complaint that was filed by TSA a little creepy. Yeah. That's a little creepy.

Would you rather be safe as opposed to feel safe again again safer with them than without them? You're not good. No, you're not now not them. I don't know. Maybe not the how you can say not that TSA program. I don't see how you say that. I don't say it DHS says eighty percent of their tests fail. My point is if we didn't have any security there at all it would be an absolute cluster. You know, what we're we're in full agreement dirty in an airport. Yeah. But not the government.

"Is causal. What that simply means is we tend to apply causation to whatever we can see. It's one of the most one of the reasons economics is so difficult to get across the people because oftentimes what is visual is not causal. So what we see as the problem isn't really the problem. The problem is something that you can't see or that isn't readily identifiable. And so when we look at these long lines and we look at all the screening and taking off your shoes and your belt and putting your stuff through the screening deal, we believe that is where the security comes from when in reality, there's almost no security taking place there at all. All it does is make you feel better. Doesn't actually increase your security one iota at least not markedly. So as evidenced by how much contraband you can actually get through TSA screening, what does create real security is exactly what the TSA is doing here, the profiling. Now the question becomes, are the are the air marshals qualified to be doing this type of work and that's a legitimate concern. So if you've got a guy who comes out of the academy and all he's learned how to do is protective an airplane and shoot bag is on plane. He is not qualified to be profiling people walking through an airport. He doesn't. He doesn't know what he's doing, which is probably why this guy, this whistle blower, they called him was complaining about it. He's probably like, this isn't our job. This isn't what we do. And if he doesn't believe it's his job, if he hasn't been properly trained to do it, if he hasn't been told, this is an expectation of you now, and we're gonna make sure you have the training and the expertise to do it. Well, then he probably is frustrated with and rightly so, but the actual profiling itself doesn't interfere with anybody's life. If you're if you are not in engaged in taking down a plane, then you likely will never see them, and it is what. Will add real security to airports across the country. It's like I said, it's what I've been calling for. You don't have a right to fly on a plane. You don't. And while I don't agree with the government being in charge of the security at airports, I don't think that's necessary. I think private companies can hire people to do that just as well or better than the government definitely better than the TSA does it. You don't have a right to get on a plane, which means whatever sort of profiling, whatever security screening that the airline wants you to go through before you get on their plane is something that you don't have a choice about you wanna get on their playing. This is what you gotta do, and if it requires that you go through some sort of like secret profiling. And before you get on the plane, you just accept it or you walk or you buy your own plane fly private. You should. I'm saying, this is the type of screening that will actually bring real security as long as the people doing it or well trained, and there's the rub because there's no, there's no telling whether or not they are my guess is probably not. This is probably some add on or like, what? Why are we? We really wanna start this profiling program, but this is going to require a massive amount of money to hire and train a bunch of people. What else could we do? Well, we've got a bunch of these. You know, these air marshals are sitting around and airports waiting to get on planes. Maybe we could just task them with it. Well, it sounds like a pretty good idea up. That's that's what we'll do. Save a bunch of money. Get these guys work during their time off..

Your travel history say for example. You're a business person who travels the world and goes to some of the hot spots, or you even raise even a hint of suspicion That's enough And that's when the remarkably detailed surveillance starts marshals in, the program get a list of people to follow in airports and then. Onto flights and if they fidget or they use the bathroom a lot or they use a cell phone or they have a jump in their Adam's apple Or a cold penetrating stare do I have a cold penetrating stare TJ Or they check the?

Confirmed its existence we are no different than a, cop on the corner that is placed there because there is an increased possibility that something might happen The TSA spokesperson In a quote to. The Washington Post when you're in a tube at, thirty thousand feet it makes sense to, put somebody there The. Agency wouldn't divulge details of how people get selected. For surveillance or about the surveillance itself And So I guess the question would you? Why how did the Boston Globe get wind of the program in the first? Place and it would have been from marshals themselves who think that it's not only a waste of time and, resources but perhaps a violation of ordinary people's privacy So I was reading that last night and it was someplace somewhere, in the confines of some file cabinet somewhere It says that I threatened a sitting US member of the US congress one time You remember this TJ I don't.
