"The great American. I love to hear from the Heartland from individuals who work hard work. Smart does regular slips. So when I got this email from Jeff Danny insulin, I thought, you know, I better get that out there to the American people because the during thing is so good and speaks well about what's happening. To me. There's a tremendous disconnect between what is happening in the real world and what is happening in Columbus. He sent me this email that said the silent majority of business owners in Ohio. Own millions of square foot of signing. I would like to see a movement start now to use it to protest the wind's dictates political pressure from visual in your face. Signs on every street corner in every town could turn things around. Like to talk about my idea for a few minutes to get the word out of possible to reach could start That movement. Pics of my 1st 2 are attached. Of course, the real risk for us is Wine using the power of Ohio government to retaliate against businesses that protest My signs. My next signs air coming. Hey, do whiner. You are a business, not your mask. Police. We are a business and he goes on with some of this Jeff Denny. Is the proprietor. Of Creative homebuying solutions. And some of the signs say. 11.73 million Ohioans 3400 deaths. The death rate is 0.29 Pandemic. I vote No There's a sent me a picture. Those willing give up liberty for safety deserve neither Ben Franklin So I thank Jeff Danny for getting ahold of me. That through my heart media email account and anyone else. I have a text here from my friend Pete Witty on the on the West side of town, saying he'd give Half off the prices and basically make no money and I I don't I don't know what it's going to take, because if somebody would have told me when Mike DeWine and his coterie of friends were elected, Tio To Columbus. There would have to fight to get back freedom and liberty. I wouldn't have believed it. I would say Richard Cordray, the Democrats, the Obama Camden official running against Mike DeWine. This is exactly what he would have done. And the most recent closures were sparked by Dr Deborah Burkes, who went to Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee and Michigan. So she went to a the Democratic stronghold in Michigan. She came to Ohio Republican. She then went Tio, Kentucky and even share who's a Democrat. Then she went to Tennessee Republican. Governor Bill Lee. And I found this article out of a Tennessee newspaper. Tennessee governors shoots down Burkes recommendation to close bars and restaurants at a joint press conference. A joint press conference. So Debra Burkes, who's under fire by Trump at this point Travels to the Midwest into the South to give them updates and what to do. Of course, Wittmer is already shut down everything there making a difference. Ohio was largely reopening. You know. Deborah Berke shows up in Columbus. In which case Mike DeWine listens to Debra Burkes and quickly says tomorrow I'm going to tell the liquor control board to shut down bars after 10 o'clock at night. And then considering later a 25% maximum capacity that would destroy the restaurant business completely if it's not already destroyed. And then he went to Kentucky and Andy Bashir said Good. Come on in. He shut down all the bars. For at least a two week period. And then he went to Tennessee. Governor, Billy said in reaction. He's standing the other news conference with Debra Berks. I'm standing next to him is the governor of Tennessee. And she said, quote it is at this very moment when we could change the trajectory of the epidemic before it goes into full of what we call larger rhythm, attic spread, and sir seeing across the South And then Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee stood up and said he would not close down bars indoor facilities even though I had the authority to do so he doesn't think it's required. He said. Beyond the regions that currently have restrictions. There's not a plans for a state wide to shut down bars and restaurants. I will rely upon local health officials to make recommendations that I will proceed accordingly. She said. Closing bars and limiting dining helped to curb the spread of the Corona virus in Arizona, which is largely increasing, like Florida and Texas. And he said, Well, I appreciate what you're doing, and then he went on to say in Tennessee. And I have the independent stats right here from Monday, which courses yesterday. Tennessee has had 15 deaths. For 100,000 more than half a nursing home, so you can say In the in the general population. Tennessee, the home of the volunteers, Peyton Manning, seven deaths per 100,000 and a confirmed case fatality rate. In other words, confirmed cases. Of 110,000 in Tennessee and how many died. 0.98%. 0.98%. Kentucky has a confirmed case fatality rate of 2.38%. In Ohio is 3.8%. So, he said, You know tendencies doing pretty well. And I appreciate what your recommendation is, but we've had a total of 1075 deaths a little more than half a nursing homes. So we have in the general population, about about 500 deaths, 500 deaths out of six million people. Comes down to About seven per 100,000. So if one would fill up volunteer stadium in Knoxville, I don't know what it's called these days to be out of the called Peyton Manning Stadium, but nonetheless fill it up with 100,000 people. Maybe as many as seven of 100,000. That may die a covert 19 and he said, I'm sorry I will rely upon the individual judgement of volunteers in Tennessee. To make their own decisions. Where to eat. Where to drink. What to go. Howto? What the Where? Where to work? I'm not gonna interfere. So you had three of the four governors she visited. Buckle under and said, We're shutting out bars and restaurants, by the way, with no serious evidence. That that would have any impact whatsoever and the trajectory of this virus which we can't control any more than we can control more Mars, Mars or stars or The Asian flu or the or the German flu or the Hong Kong flu or the Spanish flu or Ebola. We can deal with the aftermath, but we really we can't stop it. It is part of humankind's existence every now and then to fight. A viral infection through community spread that jumps from the animal kingdom to humankind. That is part of life spend that way forever, And it's going to be that way for a long time. Now, when you're in a filthy environment, like in Communist Red China. You have the Hong Kong flu. And you have the Asian flu. Now you got the Chinese covert 19 flew. You get more there than you get in a more civilized places. So we just have to deal with it. It's part of life..

Trump fires TVA chair, cites hiring of foreign workers

"The president today, firing the chair of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the TV a criticizing the federally owned corporation for hiring foreign Workers. President Trump telling reporters at the White House that he was formally removing the chair Skip Thompson and another member of the board, and he threatened to remove other board members if they continue to hire foreign labor. By the way, Thompson was appointed by President Trump as background. The TV A is a federally owned corporation created back in 1933 to provide flood control, electricity and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. That was a region it was hit especially hard during the Great Depression. It covers not only most of Tennessee but also parts of Alabama, Mississippi in Kentucky, as well. A small sections of Georgia, North Carolina and even parts of Virginia. The president is also calling on the CEO to be fired, claiming his $8 million your salary should be closer to $500,000. Informally removing the chairman of the board James Thompson and board member Richard Hold. If the TV a does not move swiftly to reverse their decision to re hire their workers, then more board members will be relieved. We have the absolute right to remove board members on the board makes a decision. I don't make that decision I saw there was an ad on television talking about the amount of money that the chairman makes, and it's a ridiculous amount of money, but we have the right Replace the board and the board is the one the only ones that get the right to then hire a new person. Furthermore, the board must immediately hired that new CEO who puts the interests of American workers. First, the current CEO Jeff Li, Ash is ridiculously overpaid. He earns $8 million a year. Did you know that he's the highest paid government official of any country anywhere in the world? I don't know that Gollum officially a government. It might be a public private. Maybe something is a long time ago, It was established Tennessee Valley, but he gets $8 million a year. So that was just a succession of deep swap things happening on DH. It's a disgrace, but he gets $8 million per year on DH. I can think of about almost 100% of the people I know would take that job and not a very hard job. Not a lot of debt, not a lot of anything, right public services just at those who take these jobs must be focused on the public. Good not on personal profit. He would have taken the job for millions and millions of dollars less. But nobody asked him to do that. Okay, would have gone for less. You could have had him for forming in 15,000,001 million, probably 500,000 year. The new CEO must be paid no more than $500,000 a year, which is still a significant amount more than the president of the United States makes That from the president on the Tennessee Valley Authority again, which was first organized back in 1933 at the start of the FDR

COVID-19 testing and contact tracing key for safely reopening schools, two new studies suggest

"Some classrooms begin to open the US Dr Anthony Fauci said today that schools should proceed with caution and make safety a priority down. She also said that students need the psychological nutritional benefits and pretending in person classes although acknowledges that parents have to quote. Dramatically modified their work schedule this as we touched on earlier, two new studies suggesting scaled up testing and contact tracing of those who test positive being key factors in any school reopening. To professionals who are facing these issues in different dates. Becky stone is the director of Alcoa City schools in Tennessee and Brian Woods Superintendent of the northside independent school district in San Antonio Texas, appreciate both of you for for being here tonight Becky the for the first day back to school in your area. Tennessee was July twenty second week and a half ago you. I know you've had four confirmed coronavirus cases. You expect so many. So soon and and how you responded that how does that change thing? Is. When we decided that we were going to open wing knew that we would have cases We unfortunately didn't go into it thinking that. No one was going to get sick because lots goes on those folks are going to get sick if they're in school or not but the first one we had was Just right. After we opened school and we met together and as attain. We did our contact tracing and because I felt like we had some really good protocols in place we really didn't the exposure was very limited and the second time it happened was last week and again I feel like because of the protocols we have in place in the safeguards there was very little exposure Interesting that that you're doing your own contact trae saying as a school That's a that's obviously a smart thing to do given the problems we're seeing with contract tracing on kind of you know on the large scale. Bryan Texas you're facing a different timelines. Schools haven't opened yet in your district, but once they do they'll be required to have full person learning after the first eight weeks. I correct me if I'm wrong on that do you think that timeline will allow you to keep your students and teachers say It's a good question and it's one that I hope we don't have to contemplate obviously our preferences not to have a a set timeline but rather to allow a local school leaders in elected boards of trustees to make decisions about what safe for their students in their staff. So a it is concerning to us that we have kind of an arbitrary time line of eight weeks, and then whoever wants to be back in the building. Ganvie. Becky I. Knew Your district did stagger started with students coming in for in person classes I think only one day week, which means I, think he'd only have a twenty percent occupancy at any given time. How is that working out? What are the difficulties? That you're finding just for other educators who are out there. That's true. We have about we're a small district. We only have about twenty, two, hundred students system wide good part. We're all on one campus with four schools on one campus we did decide. For. An option our our students could also choose to do all online and to do virtual learning. So when we say we brought in twenty percent, it's a little bit less than that because of those virtual learning students who are already online, but we did we stagger. So students are in school one day a week, and then they do digital learning the next four days until they come back to their in person day and it's worked out very well for US I can say. Got Of great feedback from parents teachers from other from administrators It does create some difficulty and you touched on that a second ago parents. It creates a difficulty for parents and I understand that and we want to be sensitive to that. But at the same time we thought why with the pressure to open, this is the only way that we could open safely and that was our first priority, and if if I know with contact tracing if a classroom if the student has positive. What happens in terms of quarantining D- do does the teacher they were in touch with does that person have to then leave school does the classroom what happens? Well. Again, because we open with such small numbers, it's very easy for classes to social distance and so Alvar staff are required to wear masks all times. Our students are not required. They six through twelve. We have strongly suggested that they wear and then pre K. through five. We have suggested that they wear if they're going to be in close groups. However. It's been good because most all students are wearing mask as well. But again, a classroom if a student test positive. There may only be for their students in that class right and they've been distance, and so when you do the contact tracing, what we have found is that very few of them have been in close contact for ten minutes or more within six feet of one another, and so the exposure has been very limited and most of the time both have on mass. So they can continue come to school and the teachers continue coming to school. Even though they they've. Been in the area of of a student, but not for a prolonged time. That's correct. Now, the student that tests positive obviously would corentin for fourteen days. Okay and and then anyone else that we find that may have been in close contact with that person and may have some exposure. They would also contain for the fourteen days. Brian's Brian the guidance for Best Practices for schools has been a moving target of both federal and state levels of Texas Office of in a hot spot for the virus in recent weeks how has that changed your plans and preparations have? It's changed dramatically when we surveyed our families in early June, we had about three quarters who indicated they wanted to come back for in person learning than we sent the same survey out in mid-july that was down more like a third, and so it has altered plans dramatically unfortunately in Texas we've had constantly shifting state. As well, and so I don't honestly know which version of the plan were on at this point I lost track a long time ago. But the the prevalence of the viruses. Shifted our plans but I feel good that we got a good plan on. Nimble plan. Going forward, and we'll be able to serve families either in the building or in distance learning well O'Brian woods and becky stone I appreciate can't imagine how difficult it is to be an educator right now and not appreciate all you're doing. Thank you very much.

Dr. Birx says coronavirus is "extraordinarily widespread" in rural areas

"Into a new month, and Dr Deborah Birks of the White House Corona Virus Task Force warns that were also in a new phase of the pandemic. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily rides spread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas and to everybody who lives in a rural area. You are not immune or protected from this virus. Works told CNN that no matter where people live, they should wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Today, President Trump called her pathetic in a tweet. Joining us now is NPR's Eric Whitney, who's keeping an eye on the latest news about covert 19 around the country. Hi, Eric. Hello, Jeremy. We just heard. Dr Burkes mentioned the spread in rural areas give us more details about where we're seeing spikes in rural parts of this country, So I'm based in Montana. It's a mostly rural state and like a lot of rural states, we've had very low numbers until about June. And since then we're seeing our overall case can't grow exponentially. Following rollbacks on restrictions on businesses and visitors. Last week, we saw a construction site at a mountain resort here blow up with more than 100 positive cases. I know there's a people in tourist towns were really concerned about all the out of state plates. They're seeing across many states, their frontline workers they're concerned about being exposed to the virus. Reporter in Tennessee tells me the outbreak there has now moved beyond Nashville and Memphis and become widespread across much of the state. And I think that's also the case in a lot of southern states with high infection rates like Mississippi and Alabama. Still pretty Communist e big spikes in rural places with big meatpacking plants or other agricultural operations where people worked closely together. Jails and prisons are often located in rural areas, and we're seeing spikes there, too, when you mentioned some of the states that are in the south. In fact, six of the top seven states in terms of the new cases are in the south. The other Being California are things starting to level off at all in those states that have seen spikes in recent weeks well, California's daily case count has dropped from a peak on July 25th of more than 10,000 new cases today. About 6400 yesterday. You know that's good news. But it is far from assured that trend will continue in 6400 cases a day is still huge that Khun spawned a lot of new spread. No, Arizona has seen a more sustained drop recently, the state's weekly average of new cases. Has been going down since early July. But health officials in Arizona and even that state's conservative governor Doug Ducey, are not saying that they're out of the woods yet Governor dues He paused his previous plans to continue broad reopening. Hospitals in Arizona have been strained. That's eased a little bit, but it's not over yet. And then, if you look a test positivity rates in many Southern states like Florida and South Carolina, there's they're often in the double digits. Mississippi's test positive the rate is over 20%. Georges is more than 12% in public health officials say that anything over a 5% positivity rate is concerning, so I don't think we can say that things were leveling off in Southern states.

It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am.

We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status?

Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor.

Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse.

Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.

Where did Davy Crockett die

"For coffee lovers today's mystery. Well, this industry Gabi Crockett on March six. Eighteen thirty six Mexican forces stormed the Alamo afford I like old mission in San Antonio where some two hundred rebellious Texans had been holed up for weeks, the battle was over in less than two hours leaving. Great. Texas heroes like Jim Buoy, James Butler Bonham, and William Travis dead among the defenders that day was Davy Crockett former congressman legendary hundred scowl, and teller of tall tales according to sell accounts Crockett died in. A battle that according to others. He was one of a handful of men captured and later executed what really happened while there's the battle and Aaron Lace, the myth and mystery. But exactly who was Davy Crockett he was born in Tennessee. Eight seven, hundred, eighty, six as a young man he was indentured by his father to pay off debts once they were paid in full he was finally allowed to leave home. Although he was voted into Congress, no one knows where he was educated yet he was articulate understood politics and could play the fiddle Crockett's true claim to fame prior to his death at or around. The Alamo was just a hunter in his youth tessie was still a wilderness out one time. He supplied food through skills of hunting for an entire army.

The Best Places in America to Build Wealth By Age

"Yeah. Of the things I love about when we do this show is where show ideas come from right. So obviously a lot of times it comes from the audience sometimes, it comes from something we'll be doing internally. With clients that the wealth management firm but this came from a different place. This whole show was born out of something that you would not think of money got shelby born of. So guys it probably plays out a lot like you think it is around here is that bose office is right next to my? Office and when I come in in the morning I typically I suck all productivity out of the room by going in sitting in one of his chairs and I tell him. So, here's what happened. My daughter is taking a personal finance course and one of the big topics that she had and I was just really incredible is the income tax rate by state and how that impacts as well as the cost of living for rent and other things, and I can still remember the example was San Francisco compared to Portland Oregon, and I'll get into the details later. I was just I told a house like you got to pay attention. This really is an amazing thing on while when you're starting out, you gotta pay attention what tax rates and other things because they really influence. So I was all excited about this idea in abroad a. He of course, pull out. Wait until I turned around and stuck me in the back and then told me this idea was horrible but he did make it better. I give you a lot of credit you you think like I think but you make things. I I think you take it. You bridge the idea into something else because he came up with. Why don't we do this by age of the best places to live because what you're hitting on is different parts of the country have different things, and here's what I didn't realize when we had this conversation 'cause this is probably a month and a half ago. That had this conversation was how current events were going to veer into what we're talking about here because. Just in the last three days Joe. Rogan has announced. He's moving from California to Texas. You hear Tesla is announced. They'll go have a brand new plant that they're going to be building a cyber truck in Texas as well. So you start thinking about, wow, there are things going on and how many articles do we see right now because of what happened with Cova? That people are working from home. Big corporations are announcing. You know what? Maybe we'RE NOT GONNA. Go back to the traditional office based component. We're let you work from wherever I think a lot of people are about to say. If I've a choice. Let me start figuring out what's important to me on the decision making of where I should leave live for Mafia and what I think about brides. We've never actually sat down put pen to, but we actually worked this entire exercise ourselves starting way back in like the early two thousand tins is time figuring out where we want to live like where do we want to put the business where to the families what opportunity to look for? Even, though we had, we didn't have the show pinned at that time. We kind of went through the things that we're going on the show on how you should think about where I live really impacts my financial wellbeing both now and over the long term have you ever noticed corporations will have an entire task force at their job is to figure out where they're going to put it in starting the local communities to essentially bid out, give them tax breaks and other things, and they'll they'll figure out. They'll take the executive teams and figure out where they WANNA live I. Don't think the average American I think most people live where they live because that is close to where they were born family is close to where they went to College A. You know I don't know that people have gone done a deep dive yet spend the entire show. We have so many episodes talking about training your mind to think a certain way thinking about all the tactics to building wealth but one of the most important things is to make sure that you're putting your entire financial empire is rooted in Fertile Soil Yep, and let me give you a perfect example. I lived in Georgia my entire life. Loved it. Now, there's two things that were going on Bo. You are starting to reach a point in your career on new you needed additional opportunities because i. you know the where we lived in an south, Atlanta was just not going to be economically feasible for support me and my family but future advisor wasn't GonNa be the same. So that was then have a special needs daughter Yep. So that kind of the culmination of those things brought together starting to do this research and when I tell people we moved to Nashville after we looked at Naples Florida after we looked at Alfa Reta. George after we looked at Boone North Carolina. I Charleston I mean, we have a whole list of all the different cities we went through and actually pulled up the the data points. People look at me like I have a third, all my head and I'm like, no, this is this was how important this was. So I want to encourage you to think about where you live also a former neighbor who's now back in Chicago. He says his biggest turning point in his career was when he was just a print salesman in Chicago barely you remember these guys from door to door when we were down in south. Atlanta try sell a dismal way to make a living. He took a flyer chance and started doing sells out in California for a technology company changes entire life I mean he's back in Chicago. Now lived in Tennessee for while we have clots. Yeah I think one of the thing that's really interesting Brian is like We're we were talking about this on average personal finance. It was a lot of focus on early part of your career where to decide I want to start my career but this actually permeates through all the different stages of life because what you say we have clients right now that are either at retirement at first retirement or beginning to think about retirement that are starting this process right now figuring okay. This is where I've. Lived my whole life? How do I make the choice of where? I. Want to retire where I want to move to what adjustments I wanna make, and so we're seeing it very practically right now in the lives of real human beings. So don't take for granted where you live because it does have a huge impact I will tell you moving to Nashville we moved here for all those things on that list what we didn't know. Is that when we moved here, we gonNA have access to more creative types have access to people who move out of work video who could do video editing who could do graphics. The fact that we moved to Nashville. has made this business probably we've quadrupled out easily. I mean I don't even know what the past quadruple is toppled is win toppled. Okay. So so I'm just telling you guys if you will change your minds at you might this thing might grow more fruit than you even could put in your

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire

"Unless Congress takes action, millions of Americans are likely to be evicted from their homes. Berry soon, and this problem is more than just a crisis. This is a crisis that the American people are dealing with, but there's also a crisis when it comes to Congress and how utterly? Our lawmakers are when it comes to providing the economic relief that Americans desperately need so there have been numerous stories published about the number of Americans who are likely to be addicted, but these numbers keep ballooning so for instance last week, the Federal Moratorium on Evictions and also on federally backed mortgages expired, and so there are some states that have implemented their own addiction. Moratoriums but you have to keep in mind. Mind that some states have not done so and we still have tens of millions of Americans who are jobless who lost their healthcare coverage as a result of being laid off in the middle of this pandemic, and then you also have Republicans who refuse to extend the unemployment benefits that were provided under the cares act. That was the additional six hundred dollars a week. That Americans would receive if they filed for unemployment. Unfortunately it seems like there are some members of democratic leadership who were going along with the lies and deceptions that are being message to the American people. So before we get to that I want to share some statistics with you. The Urban Institute estimated. That provisions covered nearly thirty percent of the country's rental units and I'm talking about the Be Moratorium on evictions by one estimate. Some forty million. Americans, could be. During the public health crisis, and of course, this is the most unsurprising part about all of this minority. Groups are the most. Vulnerable when it comes to fiction, so people of Color, according to CNBC are especially vulnerable, while most while almost half of white tenants say they're highly confident. They can continue to pay their rent. Just twenty six percent about african-american tenants could say the same around half. Hispanic tenants said they have little to no confidence. They'll be able to stay in their homes. And if you look at data, state-by-state to see how states are impacted by this. You Look at Louisiana, for instance, fifty percent of ten say that they can no longer afford their rent. A fifty one percent who say that they can't afford their rent in Florida fifty eight percent, in Tennessee fifty nine percent in West Virginia and again Benjamin love for you to jump in the frustration. Here is the utter lack of leadership, not just in in the federal government with the trump administration, but also with Congress right what we're seeing here is just it's. It's shocking, but it's not surprising race. It's almost like the natural combination of how are leadership has been leading the direction. They've been going. They are really pushing the people as far as they possibly can I. Think you are Frankin Clippers stain on. Twitter, said that they're trying to find the very least that they could possibly do without causing a riot, but you know when these numbers start hitting the fan right when people actually are put out of their homes with nowhere to go, and then if they if they're lucky enough to get in a homeless shelter night, we do not have the capacity to house. All of these people in the homeless shelters across this country, but even in that scenario they would then be exposing their families to covid nineteen. This is not something that's but the fact that they're playing chicken and taking it. All the way to the wire is is disgusting. Absolutely, so you have the moratorium on fictions on one hand, and then you also have the issue of the unemployment benefits which are set to expire on the last day of July, and so of course, when you hear the rhetoric coming from the Senate Gop, and also from the White, house, there's this live that keeps getting repeated over and over again about how well these unemployment benefits are just too high, and as a result are refusing to go back to work. In fact, one of the Republican senators. Who was her pet? This nonsense was Ted Cruz over the weekend. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. And then I wanNA. Compare what he said to democratic. Leadership Listen. In terms of the unemployment benefits do you object to providing any kind or any amount of federal boosts unemployment at this point, because not everyone is choosing to be out of work. The policy that Nancy Pelosi Democrats are pushing adds an additional six hundred dollars a week of federal money to unemployment. We have unemployment system system. Down, to seventy percent. Problem is for sixty eight percent of people receiving it right now. They are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job and I'll tell you. I've spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas. We're trying to reopen and they're calling. Their waiters and waitresses are other busboys, and they won't come back, and of course they won't come back is the federal government is paying in some instances twice as much money to stay home, but APP may, and to a lesser amount. At look at what we ought to focus on instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. What's a recovery bill or coverage? Bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America. WHO's working? That actually gets people back to work.

Dave Rubin on Thinking for Yourself in this Age of Unreason

"They would've thrilled and honored to have you on the show. Welcome dose of leadership. It's good to be with you. Let's test my leaderships. I gotTa tell you I was telling a little bit in the prerecording that you know when I found you I found Peterson particularly, U2. I've been really frustrated over the last I. Don't know probably five years, but particularly this last year as if everything's gone upside down, I felt kind of And I even like politics much, but I felt politically loss i. feel like I didn't have a home, and so I wanted to thank you for some foremost for the work that you do and great job on your book. I finished it. In one night, so don't run. This book was awesome, so thank you for for the work that you do. Well? Thank you for the kind compliments. You're obviously buttering me up before we get into the the tough stuff, but you know it's. It's an odd thing for me because I don't consider myself. Particularly controversial I don't consider myself someone that courts. Anger or hostility or or even fame in a weird way. I'm just saying what I think. I talked to people that I think are interesting, and then, and then on that journey I've been honest about how I've changed certain beliefs, or how I have refined certain things or how I think differently, or how those all of all of that stuff, how that has just incorporated into my life, and now running several businesses and having employees, and all of those things, and you know through doing all that I think something. Something good has sort of magically appeared, and the fact that you know people say what you just said to me pretty often that you know. I help them maybe I introduce them to Jordan. And then, through Jordan, they were able to fix something in their life or not, even just about Jordan and self help, specifically, maybe their own political evolution, maybe something about belief or lack of belief or philosophy. If I've had anything to do with anyone's ability to. Pilfer a little more happiness or find a little more purpose in the world. That's that's pretty frequent spectacularly well I. think it's because it's rooted in a couple of things. It's rooted in authenticity which I think is lacking in so many. Bastions so many corners of our world, and so I think that's something I. Definitely learned from doing this show and I think any modicum of success. That I've had on this show in from the feedback that I've got from. Is and where I saw the turning point was. I just need to be authentic and transparent. I'm not trying to be an interviewer. I'm not trying to be something that I'm not and I. See that in you, even reading in your book and knowing what about your history and it wasn't that long ago to be quite honest and I love your story where you had the conversation with Larry Elder, and where you had the courage in the Tennessee to stay. You know what I kind of got. beat up here, let's. Play it as it is I. Think even your producer at the time. Whoever it was said Hey, we'll cut that out. Don't worry, and you said No. Let's just leave it in and. That was kind of a turning point for you, wasn't it wasn't that long ago? Which I know? Well I describe it as as my best and worst career moment at the exact same time you know it was my worst for obvious reasons. Right I came to a fight. In this case, it intellectual fight over systemic racism and I wasn't armed with facts so when I said sort of the default setting thing the Idaho will systemic racism exists meaning it's built into the system. There are laws about it about the racist laws in the system, the American system itself I just said it as if. By the fact that I'm saying it must inherently be true. Larry, then just as I say in the book he beat me senseless with facts fact, after fact after fact, and I guess the moment that for a lot of people with special, there is that you can sort of see me. Take the hit. I didn't I didn't attack him. Personally attack him I didn't end the interview any of that stuff I just kind of sat there with it. And then when the interview closed as you said, I went into the control room, and several producers were in there. At the time it was before we were completely independent, and everybody said Dave. Don't worry about it. We're going to cut that. And I really didn't have to think about it I was just like. Is You know what if I'm doing anything worthwhile? If this has any meaning whatsoever, we have to leave it and I. Know I'm not GonNa. Look Great, but we have to leave it and you know the next couple of days as the clips started going around and you know how. How youtubers larryelder destroys capital letters day. Ruben conservative crushes Lib, Taw, or the rest of that stuff well in the initial hit of that I was like Oh man. This stinks like nobody wants to be on the receiving end of that, but what I realized really after maybe three days was that the commentators were suddenly going holy cow Dave Dave sat thing. Excuse me. Dave sat there and took it, and then they started watching change over the next couple of months learning more about it having having those conversations going further with it, you know eventually getting to talk to people like Thomas Old. Who was a mentor of of Larry? Elder's and I think that sort of honest approach is very attractive to people I, it's not rocket science. It's just it's just being who you are being humble in the moment and seeing what happens,

Show Notes Tips from Tech-Minded Podcasters

"First thing, the big news for those of us in the podcast industry in a lot of podcasters out there is podcasts movement. In Dallas, has been canceled surprise surprise. It's kind of been the theme all this year. You know all these big events getting canceled or push back and then canceled and that's what happened here. They pushed it from August to October and then decided to go virtual. So, they're going to be going virtual. If you applied to speak at podcast movement by the way you're going to have to reapply if you WANNA speak virtually at the virtual event. That's I believe October nineteenth yeah, Eighteen, th through the twenty nineth, so they're going to kind of spread it out over ten days, so at shouldn't a burden, too many people with having to take a lot of time off from work. That'll be good. Yeah I was surprised when I saw how long the virtual event is going to go for, but I do think that's good, because most of us including me. I don't really WANNA. Sit on a you know virtual video conference type thing for you know more than. Probably a few hours a day, so spreading it out will make it easier. I think for most people oh. Yeah for sure, and you know I kind of saw this coming of if you notice all of the little, meet upset. podcast movements been having online every time they do it. They use a different technology. So I think they were just testing out the technology to figure out what they want to do for the the virtual full events so. It'll be interesting to see how it all works out I. Hope I hope it goes well. I know podcast is doing one in August. that's all virtual online, so we'll see how these big conferences work in the virtual world. It really is kind of a brave new world for all of US years. We try to figure out. How to do all these things in the wake of a pandemic, it's It's all new stuff. Oh Yeah I. Think L. for the most part. We're getting through it and getting. Getting. Things done that have to be done. You know that are not related directly to the pandemic or all that so. I think I. Think it's good that it's online this year. I, you know I really hope that things get back to where we can get back in person because I haven't traveled since October which is amazing for me usually. I'm on the road. So Anyway Twenty twenty one. They've already scheduled the podcast movement twenty twenty, one for Nashville Tennessee so. That'll be a new venue for them. Usually they're in bigger cities and guess. Nashville is pretty big, but I. don't know I guess I wouldn't mind checking out Nashville. Yeah. It's an interesting location. I. I know, didn't There was another you know media convention was it's The religious broadcasters association I think that Yeah usually habits meetings in Tennessee. Yeah, and RB National Religious Broadcasters. They usually have there's in Tennessee. They had it out in Anaheim one year. But for the most part it's at the same venue. In Nashville, so I know Mackenzie Angelo and todd have all been to that venue for that show, so they'll be familiar with it. Yeah Yeah it's It's an interesting choice. I like that you know podcast movement has. Tried through its history different locations I. think it's good for everybody because you know, it's a travel under abnormal conditions you know is different for everybody. Some people can afford to go farther and if you have it in a different location. If, people want to drive in. They can or whatever the case is, so it's nice that they've. They've tried to have it in different places over the years. Oh, yeah, when they hit Chicago a I drove. Most of the way in took Amtrak in so that was Kinda cool. Nashville kind of on the outside of my one day drive. Limit so we'll see. You know. Who knows. If, I drive it or fly it or Maybe, I'll find a train that goes that way. I don't know we'll see but I kind of look forward to that Rate. Stood, we have here in the news folder. According to macrumors and many many other sources spotify is introducing their video podcasts for more shows. And I know James Crillon over at Pod News. Dot Net was asking them. You know how. How is that GONNA work is to be are astronaut. turns out that no some sort of proprietary. Thing, so basically you have to upload the video right at spotify, and it only goes to spotify, so it's not like a full video podcast, and if you have a video podcast, that is a full normal, RSS, based video podcast still won't work on spotify.

"The exception of some northern or some southern counties yeah long behind we get a more yeah so but everybody yeah that is hearing the show is under the jurisdiction weather service office go to their website find out which amazing information come back we talked about be right back the National Weather Service on Tennessee matter Tennessee back welcome to Tennessee matters we are talking with Chrissy Hurley from the National Weather Service office in Nashville about some of the severe weather bands that occur across the state at this time of year and one of them one of the biggest areas flash flooding and this is a yearly concern and it is one that you should take very seriously Christy how it how we've been faring this year with comparison to other years well you know this year I think there have been more flash flood finality at looking at a whole across the United States I'm here locally out in the state of Tennessee we've actually had four and and we have one in February not far by from Nashville so you know we've been when we get those rainy patterns and when those the rains come down very fast in a short amount of time you know that's when we can get in trouble and you know I think most of the people are almost over half of the fatalities have been people driving in two flooded roads and you know I've never ever grasp that concept because you would never drive across the road I had a wildfire going across that unless you know you had No Way Out right so why do we drive across roads that are completely covered with rushing water you know the only possible explanation it's not a good one is a lot of people probably see the water got up I got that that that mode the but that's not the case in a water situation right any kind of any inconvenience to turn around you know if you don't know where you are you gotta read load your GPS and figure out you know a different way to go and you know at night it's really difficult to tell if that road has a whole lot of water on it or can I clear it so you know I I think that is that is part of the issues and that's why it makes flash flooding so dangerous and I think your your middle Tennessee I think we we do some of us that have been here for awhile we pay attention the flights I think we definitely pay attention to them we you know we are more cognizant of them since two thousand ten but you know you still see people who are going through these intersections plowing through we have reports in February people going through close roads were barricaded their get out of their vehicle move the barricades go through yeah back out of their vehicle the barricades back so close the road backs that was nice of them and they go on their way it is it's really difficult on that you know we have a little saying turn around don't drown and we really start with young kids with that saying and I tell them all the time and I do school talks you know go ahead and tell your parents turn around don't drown because sometimes as adults I think we think all well my my S. U. B. can make it through there but I'm telling you all it takes is twelve to eighteen inches of really fast moving water to take your tires off the road and that's really scary if it's moving fast enough you will lose control of your vehicle would you say water rescues in vehicles are the number one flooding it related instance here yeah yeah absolutely you know not as you know there are people that time you'll play in the creeks and streams and that we've had you know issues within your hiking and that kind of thing but the majority of a flood in says are driving and you know I think most the time you think well the fire department rescue squad they'll get there but a lot of times the water moves so quickly yeah there's no chance for them to come rescue me well that that is absolutely stunning to think about when big that you would be that people would actually go out and from the standpoint of somebody else and save me I'm gonna make this bad decision and somebody else will come to my rescue they're putting their lives in danger to do that absolutely I think maybe you know we it rains here all the time you know we have to understand is we have heavy rain all the time so I think sometimes it just it just doesn't think again and unless you're thinking about me and you know I don't know if the road still there underneath that your big water your area or or why it or the the and the water is moving really fast you just sometimes you just don't think about it and then you get in a routine if it's the same way you drive every day you think why can make it and unfortunately I mean flooding is I hear in middle Tennessee you know here lately has been the number one weather related killer lease over the past what probably ten years so it was something that we definitely stress over you know we have flies we have tornadoes and then the heat is the third and relate as far as tornadoes go our season for that we get two of them a year we get one in the spring and one in the fall is there one that wins out on statistically the worst usually it's the month of April but it's a you know it mother nature's she's she's a funny one for us lately and over the last I think it was like six or seven years we haven't had any needs big time severe weather in our traditional screen tornado season I think that the biggest tornado mind when we look at the stats heads in July you know it's been a very unusual around here and it's only a matter of time it is what we always preach but April may and March our top three twenty no mind statistically since nineteen fifty when you average it all out our secondary season our fourth most active twenty a month is November we get this summer June July August is typically tropical are related educating tropical storm if you think back to hard being a September two thousand seventeen it was kinda decaying over here we had a couple of tornadoes in around Nashville from that so usually the summertime tornadoes aren't as strong as what you would see in the spring and fall so the tornado threat is one of them but a lot of people also with the summer months you get sunshine and eventually you get into some some very intense heat and that takes its toll as well yeah you know me in the past couple weeks has been pretty brutal as far as he eats and luckily we got a nice repeat now but you know she is one of those things that can really sneak up on you you know growing up in the south what we're used to the heat humidity you know the people complain about it but we're used to it but I'm telling you no matter how much you can get used to it you over exert yourself and you don't hydrate then you can go down here all very very quickly you can start with you know he exhaustion which can rapidly deteriorate to heat stroke and we saw here would do what he struck the tally in the news I hear recently with the football player the X. tightened so I think that is you know something that you gotta pay attention with you know the elderly children even out cutting grass if you're not you're listening to your body and and you know you know it's one of those days then you know maybe take it easy way to the evening hours early morning hours and make sure you drink plenty of water typically what are the hottest months for Tennessee well for eyes you know man it's usually July and August you know it seems like June was a really really hot around here but I hate to say that we haven't seen the full summer just yet we typically I think is like mid August is our peak heating highest temperatures and then I'm a tall G. the temperature starts to go down after that I think it's about like August fifteenth or so and then things start cooling off statistically so you know we've had years where mid September we're still hitting your night low nineties with a lot of humidity so you know July and August are really are months where you have to watch out for heat and you know even if you have a working really speaks up on you is during the beginning of the season or if it's been kind of cool out and then you get this your own voice jury N. began begins to get really hot here you know if you haven't been used to it for a week then I can really impact you any not even realize it meteorology and so fascinating from the hazards all the way to the science of how old the atmosphere works and the National Weather Service actually offers some free services to kinda help educate and train and even be able to give back to the National Weather Service in times of need with severe weather right yeah you know I mean weather is one of those things that everybody talks about everybody always talks about in most of the time people have an interest in it and what we do here at the National Weather Service we have different programs that we set up most the time in the fall and then early spring other call this storm spotter programs the sky warn storm spotter program in where we go out of the community or we can also do an online where we train people to become stronger spotter so that way they know what they're looking at what to look for and it's really especially helpful if you have a family member that's really into whether that loves whether or that's terrified whether it helps them understand that every time we say a twenty of threat does not mean you're the worst tornado outbreak known to mankind that sometimes at twenty three I can just be weak brief tornadoes so it it we provide this educational opportunity for free during the spring and fall severe weather seasons and a lot of times if you go to our website will have a list a calendar list I win we provide this training weather dot gov and you click on on the map where national is and we provide this training and will even though into kind of a weather one a one class and you learn more about your forecast models satellite imagery how to interpret radar it is so if you're really into it our website is a great resource we have these classes listen no began in September and continue into October and they're free of charge and that is just one of those great resources to educate yourself and you know kind of make a connection in the weather community and learn in and meet some of the forecasters that's kind of each forecaster does one of these presentations and yours just isn't good to learn from us and try to spread the weather message about what to say well Chrissy thank you so much for joining us if you do have interest in that weather dot gov there are as I said three offices that serve the Tennessee as a whole actually for you include hunts fell and each office has its own spotter training program is that correct or that is correct yeah each one of them had so if your west to the sea they go to different communities and west as seen in East Tennessee as well we don't make it to every county I in a given year but we try to make it everyone maybe once every three years so you'll look out on social.

"Long for party unique. And you're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want. It is the first week of April. And this month is a month that while there's something that's been going on that. I think my impact a lot of people that are listening to this program to talk about it in detail right now is the executive director of the Tennessee human rights commission that is Beverly wants Beverly. Thank you so much for joining us today. How are you? I'm doing fine. Thank you. Tell us about April and how it relates to fair housing. All right. Well, April fairhousing designated by the US department of housing and urban development. And it is based on the fact that the fair housing act with actually passed and find into law on April eleven nineteen sixty eight as you will recall in nineteen sixty eight there were marches going on in Memphis around the garbage workers strike, and Dr king was killed on April the fourth exactly week before right? One week before in Dr Chang had been working on Friday of issues employment issues title seven had been passed in nineteen sixty four he was working on a variety of fishes just to make sure that was access in the public arena. And then housing was another issue. He was working on along with his really quality of life initiative for lack of better time to make sure that every American have the right to quality of life. But how they fair housing that kind of thing. And when he died Lyndon Johnson. Marshaled all of his political resources and put force the fair housing act in and got some sponsors will all it was sort of languishing to be real honest, and that people push that Bill forward, and as a result eleven on April, the eleven been Johnson with his political power and might and they collaborations that Dr king had built was able to get that law passed and signed and that's up a nominal short time period for some have been in congress, maybe a year or two and couldn't get any traction. And it does at that one in time Member States like Tennessee and others had employment or Bishen was working on housing. But it was not as defined in some other places. So the housing just in the nation in housing based on race color, national origin, sex religion disability. And for millions status. Disability and familial status came into being in nineteen eighty eight and then some of the others came later, but this is really a core of what their housing or Hibbitt, and it says that everyone is entitled to fair and Basant housing. And then there is this connection with affordable housing that Dr king was talking about with as he was dying housing should not only be accessible, but it should be affordable as well. We are going to talk in depth about April twenty nineteen and how that the efforts this month will will benefit the cause of fair housing. And where we go forward from here. But I think it's pretty important to frame our conversation for me to at least give a thumbnail sketch of what your background is. I don't mean to embarrass you with with with your accolades, but certainly just knowing what you've done and how you are on this program today and. And your personal experience. It really is important. So just to kind of let our audience know that Beverly she did go to Tennessee states. And she is born in Nashville. So she is Tennessee native, which she's also had extensive experience in this particular topic. She was she went to southern Illinois for graduate work as well as completing an executive leadership program at Duke as well as at Harvard in the JFK school of government beyond that, she's her, and she's a combined thirty years of experience in this particular topic also talking about civil rights, and she was the first executive director of the national fair housing training academy in Washington DC, and again, I don't bring that up to embarrass you. But it's important. I think for our audience to know, this is not your first day on the job with this subject. Is it? No, it's not. And I think one of the most important things is so people understand their rights and their responsibilities under the law so much time at the fair housing training academy with actually trading investigators on how they could go about evaluating allegations of discrimination in determining whether or not that's the nation could be found based on the evidence win vested. So we've done that. But we've also done something else. And we do a lot of this doing April. And that is that we make sure that everyone the public in general, fair housing providers in particular, and anyone else understand what the law is with the rights are under the law, and then what responsibilities to have under the law complaining party. You come to us and any of the in all of the area complex with allegations. But they have to provide certain information to us for us to be able to pursue that on Vesta gate those playing for housing providers if they are providing it they have certain. Responsibilities and that's to make sure that the tenant. They're aware. Religion is using letting that that the sodas and we'd be more than anything else. But there's also some other areas that they understand and explain the law of their staff so that they don't invert inadvertently deny someone or give them bad information that could lead to omission, which can lead to discrimination. So so we do a lot of that. So we do a lot of programming during the month of April to make sure that the public knows what what their housing is. What is covered what the responsibilities are? And then we also like to talk a little bit about the issues that we're seeing as well. I'm going to read between the lines here a little bit and feel free to just let me know if I'm on the right track. Or if I'm way off but port of what you just described there as far as especially where you're talking about the element where you're dealing with housing discrimination. I think back especially talking about the roots with with this particular topic going back to Martin Luther King and in February. Of course, celebrate black history month and part of what we talked about during that that time was just a general thought of some of the things that the doctor was trying to accomplish that here we are in two thousand nineteen while we've come a long way in addressing the issues. We still have a long way to go. And that's that's the was leaning more in conversation that we were having more about civil rights, and certainly more just about social attitudes. And there was some socio economic types of dynamics that we were discussing. There is well am I going to be accurate in applying? Some of those same descriptions to the topic here of fairhousing today. Yes, they're housing today. We get complaints or allegations of discrimination. That says they wouldn't they would not rent to me because I'm black. They wouldn't let me because he no they won Russa me because I have children or they fail to accommodate my disability. I need a rent to get up to the to the sidewalk and they wouldn't provide one. So those are some of the things that we see today. Imos of the kinds of things that the public needs to know what is that that is covered under the law. Smoke kind of thing. Dr king was working on what he believed to be adjusted -ociety society one in which everyone regardless of income made a decent living wage had access to fair and affordable housing and also was afforded certain access to public accommodations. And those are the major issue that probably this still major issues because in some places people are still trying to not access to housing for variety of reasons, sometimes multiple reasons sometimes their families with children that have disabilities that are not able to find housing because of their child's disability for whatever reason if there is one dynamic of the population that may be has I'll say advanced as far as where some there's. There's been discrimination. Or there's been some marginalization with regard to to to getting fair rights. If there's one that perhaps has has improved. The most would be the disabled. Love to say that there is a group that has. But what I find is that of pushing a pole with you will when we find that. It's that it's that there are advances being made in some areas we find that they're not advances made in the other areas that the persons with disabilities. There's still a lot of disadvantages and a lot of obstacles to their full participation in full access to housing. So that continues to be an ongoing issue, and it can vary, and we're talking about a very vast a very large field of individuals who can have a variety of disabilities, some a visible some or not. But it does not matter can be just as as damaging if they're visible or invisible. And then there accommodations that have to be made physical accommodations to facility sometimes that are not made. And by the way, the physical facilities there necessary. The costs are born. By the individual leasing or renting the apartment, so that they dependent it would not necessarily be the on landlord that would have to do that. But they would have to at least allow them to purchase that if you will our assistant in the purchasing of that particular accommodation or making the accommodation and then getting reimbursement for that. So when we look across the board, we know that we get the most complaints from persons with disability. Followed by race followed back a million status that individuals with children, and that's the largest number. Now. This housing is the most under reported civil rights issue to that. Nationally. There are probably based on latest statistics and believe their latest statistics was twenty sixteen. There were sixteen thousand instances of reported, they housing discrimination. Allegations of discrimination. And then we in Tennessee last year in twenty eight teen at four hundred eighteen calls, alleging discrimination and leave. We filed close to a hundred and forty complaints, and we closed the hundred and twenty those numbers are pretty small compared to what we do in limit where the number is up with a four four hundred. Plus, so that gives you an idea a lot of times when I talked with individuals out say, well, they'll say, well, I think I was just gonna eight against, but you know, I didn't have time to deal with that. I needed to find a place to live for me or I needed to find a place for me, my children on my family to live. And so that here sometimes people don't buy because they're busy looking for the roof over their head. And that's that's the war. He just described. How it sounds like not only are the elements with the different groups of people that are looking for fair housing always changing the landscape of housing, always changing. And then just the situations of those same people. They're always changing there's there are a lot of moving parts in order to tackle this. And and you know, again, you know, my belief is that the best is to know the law and to do that. And so as a result, we're partnering with a number of visitations across the state of Tennessee to provide fair housing training and. Nothing with with the city of Memphis Shelby county in Memphis area legal services to name a few and in Nashville with a fair housing the Tennessee, fair housing council and a variety of groups through out kind of kind of the middle Tennessee region, including Murfreesboro Nashville, Laverne and Davidson and metro itself. So we'll be we'll be doing that. And then there's something going on in Knoxville as well. So we're we're.

"Like, man, I get it kinda go either way, but don't you with that all of it, and I sort of feel that same way except for the fact channel the games are already asking a lot of these officials to make the right call these in in rapid speeds. Can we really expect them to in the back of their mind also real type go, well, I would normally call this. But because it's end of the game. I'm not gonna call it. I think that's probably much to ask. And it's probably not the right way to officiated game. So, you know, if going alcohol there don't jump into the guy, you know, make sure you jump out of the way. So the only thing you can't do there is foul. Right. So I think he's just gotta be more careful. That's heartbreaker that was a really fun. Tennessee teen a really likable Tennessee team. A good deaf. Tennessee team to make the final four and good enough. A race in eighteen point. That's in the biggest game of the season and have a chance. It was too bad. They couldn't finish it off. But but really great and people will start saying Barnes can't, you know, as a choker, whatever maybe, but he's he's made Tennessee basketball, relevant nationally, you know, in short order, and that's not a not a small in Cali. I I want to piggyback off that. Because I mean, we we we've talked about this now for four years that perfect season going down in flames with with cow. And and when you don't get their the pain never goes away. And I wanna ask you to pick up on that. Because Rick Barnes Barnes's record in the tournament is not very impressive. Even though he has a final four, but he has a lot of lost opportunity with some of the best players that have ever played the game. This team was just such a great team. And I think that's why it is so hard breaking today. Yeah. And you you mentioned the one that you know, will probably haunt John cale and Kentucky fans forever. You know? They're two wins away from the the only for an invalid basketball history. And one of the most talented deepest teams anybody ever assembled. They couldn't get it done..

"It was definitely a foul. Dan, another aspect of it. He costing Edwards is really close to the outbound. But he would I mean, it was probably an inch for its. But no, I noticed Tournus quote was while I did see take his leg out in just call him on on his leg. But now he did. It was hip to hip was foul. And to Rick Barnes credit. He he acknowledged out not that it really matters today. The season is over and I ask you after building this team from scratch after getting to a height that this program who had not really encountered in in a long time. And then only very briefly, whereas the Tennessee basketball program today now that there will be a lot of departures and a lot of disappointment. Yep. I don't know. How many Portuguese there will be? I mean, you'll lose Admiral Scofield us lose Cala. Like, Dan six eleven post gaffe Scofield's kind of been down at the end of the season at a waffle. I stab last night came back strong in the second half the other two guys. That's the that's the real question with grant Williams to time. He'd see player the SEC player of the year, Jordan, bone five point or I just don't really think those guys are gonna go. I would be surprised if they do for one thing. I don't see grant Williams make it in the NBA immense. But I just I just don't think he has the skill set for Jordan bone to me has a much better chance. But join bone to me is to stick around another year and really work on a shot. He's he's quick. He's big enough. Off. He knows how to run it off since they disseminate the ball. He can do all thing. Be a with the way the NBA still point guards gotta be scores to and I really think he needs to find June shooting. He's improved every year. And so why not take one more year and and try to improve some more. And if those guys both come back put on with LeMond Turner and join down you're gonna have nNcholas of a really good team again. John Adams was a show may ask you about Rick Barnes because you know, you want some national coach of the year words, and certainly I think any reasonable person would laud him for the the exemplary job that he has done. But sometimes pass history does come back to haunt you. And his record and games like this as we both know is not very good. The preparation for that game last night left. A few mystified in terms of the lackluster play early the opposite of what we saw last Sunday you give us an assessment of Rick Barnes right now. And I don't mean any of this take away. But what are you thinking about the way he prepared this team in the NCAA tournament? Call. Thank the NCAA tournament is such a difficult bent to try and draw conclusions from I think each game is unto itself. And what happened the week before the week before that doesn't seem to matter? I always feel like with a NCAA game. I just really don't know what you might get. So I kind of think I don't really blame blind. So what for what happened last night? I thought who do and I didn't know this going you when I saw the bracket out to the C would win that reach. But I didn't realize how Purdue how good Purdue was Purdue just dismantled. If any national championship Villanova beat them by twenty six points. I've thought Tennessee when you look at the season, I just think Tennessee out a little bit rundown there at the end. If you go back to the SEC tournament that great comeback against Kentucky. I think that was the peak and then came from behind in the last three minutes when the game next day gets waylaid by Auburn any wealth of the NCAA tournament games leading up to the Purdue game. They they just weren't that sharp Bill big leads in both games. But then lost them lost..

"Our PO box one one eight Fayetteville Tennessee three seven three three four. We look forward to hearing from you. Here are the questions that we just asked. I how do all of the by faith examples, given in Hebrews chapter eleven help the readers of that book, what would the Hebrews readers gained from that chapter? And the second question. How does the by faith principle and practice as we see it presented in Hebrews eleven. How does it relate to justification by faith and justification by Jesus blood that we studied earlier in Romans five let's address the first questions how do all of the by faith examples, given in Hebrews eleven help the readers of Hebrews, what would those readers gained from this particular chapter? Every principal and every practice built into the by faith examples in Hebrews eleven should have clicked with the readers of Hebrews, the author included those examples not to mock not to chastise contemporary first century, Jewish Christians. But rather to encourage them to follow in the footsteps the by faith footsteps of those Old Testament examples, though, we did not take the time to emphasize it yet, the continuing context of Hebrews eleven which would necessarily include the closing verses of that chapter as well as the opening verses of the following chapter Hebrews twelve that context shows us the intention of the author. Let's take a look at that. Now here God's word and all these having obtained a good testimony through faith did not receive the promise God having provided something better for us that. They should not be made perfect apart from us. Therefore, we also since we are surrounded by so great, a cloud of witnesses. Let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race. That is set before us looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endured. The cross is spicing the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God for consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself. Lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed striving against sin, and you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as two sons, my son do not despise the chasing of the Lord nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by hand for whom the Lord loves each Chasen's. And scourges every son whom he receives that's Hebrews chapter eleven verse thirty nine continuing into the twelfth chapter through the first six versus as the writer concludes. His discussion of the Old Testament individuals who lived and who acted by faith, a turns to show how and why he cited them as examples these precious souls, according to his words obtained a good testimony to faith meaning that they gained approval that they were approved that they were commended for or through their faith or that they earned a good reputation because of their faith all different expressions found in other translations of that text their faith then counted for something in God's sight. God took note of it then and God through the Hebrews writer took note of it. Now at the time that he resolves written. Their past examples of by faith were intended to be current examples of by fate for Jewish Christians in the first century. It's interesting to note that this Burs Hebrews eleven thirty nine closes out the thought that we I saw in the opening verses of Hebrews eleven there. We read now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen for by it, the elders obtained a good testimony. Let's Hebrews eleven one. And to the words by it. In verse two means by faith the faith. I introduced in verse one and has the chapter continues, which includes all of the.

"Our PO box one one eight Fayetteville Tennessee three seven three three four. We look forward to hearing from you. We continue our focus on Romans five seven and eight that passage rate are scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans chapter five or seven posits dying for someone else as something tend to something that might something that could happen. But in the end a sacrifice that appears to be more unlikely than likely Romans five eight however tells us what God was always more than willing to do why why has got always been more than willing to go the second mile. It's because God has always shown a willingness to love, and it's because God has always shown a willingness to serve for God. That means father, son and spirit. Love and servant hood. Always go hand in hand in this context is because of God's continue a willingness to love and to serve that tells us that God, always stands ready and willing to save we closed a recent study with these thoughts. It means that God's love always. Always a saving. Love always comes across in the same way. It's complete. It's perfect. It's a love that pursues a love that goes after a love that goes out of the way for the object of that love always in short. God's love for us has always been and will always be a love that serves and saving. Love will always be a serving love. We continue. Our study of that second verse but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. We already noted that got evidences that God demonstrates and proves his love through Christ's sacrifice. But there's more to it than that. It's about God's own love. It was not just about any kind of love. It was about God's love. God who is love according to I John. Chapter four has always been so defined and so- characterized by his love that the word captures the largest share of who. And what God has always bam. It's also about the objects of God's love the objects of God's love in this context. First century, Romans, first century souls, but by extension, it would apply to every soul who has lived since. Then including us, it's also about God's love directed toward us toward all of humanity. Though. Our prior point noted that all humanity that he is also where the objects of God's love it's worth repeating it from this perspective, it was not just an overly broad or an overly general love. It was specific it was directed. And it was specifically directed toward us. It's also about when God. God directed his love towards us. This passage tells us that God's love was made known that it was demonstrated that it was directed. Dort all humanity when we were still without strength Romans five six and while we were still centers Romans chapter five verse eight God's love did not indeed God's love could not wait until some point in time. Either immediate or distant when our status as something other than sinners was the norm since Genesis three. There has been no other time when we were something other than without strength and still centers God's love was directed to us when that is while we were not thinking not feeling and not behaving like God. It was offered when we were still centers. It's also about how God directed. His love towards us. God's love was not just specific in that. It was his own love. It was not just that. It was directed to all of humanity. It was not just when it was directed to us. But it was also about how it was directed towards us. It was revealed and accomplished through Jesus the Christ the son of God specifically, it was a -ccomplish through Jesus atoning death at the cross how much farther could God go then to offer his only begotten son as an atonement for the sins of all humanity. God could not go any greater distance than descend Jesus to the cross in finding light. It's not just about how. But also about how far meaning the extent the reach of God's love directed toward all humanity. A reminder, the preceding and the contrast. Versus Romans five or six and seven rita's follows for when we were still without strength in due time. Christ died for the ungodly for scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die Romans five six identifies the objects of God's love in two ways. First they we were without strength and second. They we were ungodly Romans five eight identifies those without strength and as ungodly with a third term. They we were sinners what does this tell us about how far God's love went to. Redeem lost souls room has five seven as we have already noted raises the possibility of someone dying for another who was righteous or another who was good. That possibility in this context comes across as unlikely Romans five eight, however raises the bar of selflessness. And servitude by an order of magnitude everything about.

"Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want something that matters. And it's mattering a lot more people as days go on is the cost of care for the elderly talking about long term care, and it's something that's been on the radar for a while. And yet the the concern remains, and we're going to talk about that in more detail with guest who is joining us on the phone this morning. He is with with Jen wars, and his name is Gordon Saunders. Gordon? Good morning to you. How are you doing? Good morning. Robert, I'm doing well. Thank you for having me. Absolutely. There is a report that came out this week. What was it about? Well, it was about our annual study of the cost of long term care services. And that includes care one would receive in their home or for care that they would receive outside of their home in this type of care is your everyday activities that we. Take for granted such as going to the bathroom getting dressed eating or just simply getting from place to place, and this is the fifteenth year that we've done this study talking about that as far as some of the things that you're learning. This is not a new issue. I I can remember going back to my high school debate years in the late eighties and talking about how we knew that the baby boomer generation was going to drive this expanded a population of seniors come around this time, whether it's twenty fifteen into twenty twenty here we are. This is not a new revelation as the demographics go yet. What are you learning? But we are learning that the cost of care is certainly on the rise. And we're seeing research says that somebody over the age of sixty five has a likelihood of a seventy percent chance that they will need some form of long term care service. And as you mentioned there, the baby boomer generation is certainly susceptible in the more research says that.
