What it's like inside a prisoner transport van

"Know, with like two seats on either side. It's like a Greyhound bus. And I mean, instead of a cushy ceased at the Greyhound bus is happy. They had these little part plastic siya and you have to deal with these CEOs and every guy we talked to about this had something to say about how the CEO's act when they're on those transport buses. And you Talk. I'll pull this bus over and kick you. And if you get up without asking to go to the restroom, you will get DP. So what is dp me? Disciplined, physically physically disciplined, And if they do hear some talking, they're going to stop the bus Pull you off the bus. Give you a little bit of what they call it. They used to call it. What was it wrote there? That's what they do. Religiousness, just a gang a threat to us and what's the longest right that you've been on? It was three days going from prison, a prison of prison prison prison collect and everybody that was going to the shu in other places, and we went all the way up north to Crescent City, which is like Eureka. Oh, you're almost in Oregon and I actually went through organ to get to Pelican Bank Indian stopped at one of the prisons and you'll stay there overnight. And sometimes they put you to say you've been a hallway just sitting on a bench all night waiting on them to come get me, But I say it is nice. Uh, I've had some hippie, right? I believe you, but not like Mambo Alley. My name's Elita Bora. I served 12 little over 12 years in the California Department of Corrections been home about four years now. Back and wanted to say was around 2008. I got transfer away from San Quentin because they needed the cells for hire custody, incarcerated people so They shipped me off to California Men's colony. Okay. But the thing that is really difficult for Ali is that he had been taking college classes at San Quentin, right, And they don't have a program like that at CMC. So when he got transferred All of that stopped. And so I Li started doing everything he could to get back to San Quentin. The executive director of college programs like Live Just Hang tight. We're going to try to get you back so you can finish your college degree. I was like, OK, cool. Pretty soon Ali got called to a classifications here, which is an administrative thing you have to do before your transfer. So they called me two classifications like Yeah, she did it. She's get me back to San Quentin. So I go up in the classifications hearing and they're like, Yeah, we'll put you up for transfer and I'm just sitting there. Got my arms folded a little bit, You know, thinking, Yeah, they did this. This is yeah. You go into an out of state facility. Out of state facility. Yeah, they used to do that do that. It was common when the federal courts told California tto Lord overcrowded and as was like you've got to be kidding me. I'm supposed to be going back to San Quit in the classification hearings. They don't even let you talk man. I tried to talk. They just like well about to bring that up with your counselor and went back to the dorm. I was devastated. So Ali, facing another long ride on the great ghouls. This time he's headed out of state and a world away from San Quentin in the college classes, and it's like when you move anywhere. It's like you're starting a new life on ly In this situation. You have no control over it. You have no idea what that life is going to be. You're taking away from everything that's familiar. And your life is totally in somebody else's hands.

A Look At The First Presidential Debate Of 2020

"Let's start today's program in the United States then which last night witnessed a chaotic and bitter presidential debate between President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden here's a selection of an use the term loosely highlights. I am urging my people I. Hope it's going to be a fair election of it's a fair election and what I am a hundred percent on board. But of I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can't go along with that and I'll. Come accommodation does that mean? People to take. A fraudulent election is people aren't equipped to handle it number one, number two, they cheat. They cheat hey, they found ballots wastepaper basket three days ago they all had the name trump on them if we would have listened to you, the country would have been left wide open millions of people would have died not two, hundred, thousand and one person is too much. It's China's fault. It should have never happened. They stopped it from going in, but it was China's for. But if you look at what we've? Done. I. Closed It, and you said he's xenophobic racist and xenophobic Dr out she said President trump saved thousands of lives. Many of you are Democrat governor said, president trump did a phenomenal job. We worked with the governor a really go take a look. There's a deal. The fact is everything he said so far is simply a lie I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I WanNa make sure what it lasts. It lasts. Hi I. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan how both? The. Aesthetic you have. Have you do this month? Your administration directed federal agencies to end racial sensitivity training that addresses white privilege or critical race theory. I ended it because it's racist. It was a radical, a revolution that was taking place in our military in our schools all over the place and you know it and so does everybody else. Racial sensitivity training to view a certain person, you had no status in life. It was sort of a reversal and really they were teaching people to hate our country and I'm not GonNa do that I'm not going to allow that to happen but. Just, as the rallies to left, would you? Listen, who is on your list Joe Just. The flavor of last night's heated presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Well, let's get more on this now with motorcycles US election correspondent. Thomas Lewis, and our news editor Chris show WHO's here in London Thomas. Let Me Cross to you first of all. Some up if you can what did you make that it was not exactly a particularly edifying spectacle I think it's safe to say, no, it wasn't Tom and it didn't really feel like a debate at all. There is in the sort of you know history of these debates as a sort of sacred toned the stages these candidates president take that when after debated finished, you're watching the US knees anchors who are trying to pick up the coverage afterwards, and they all seemed absolutely stunned and lost for words and kind of shocked by the kind of visceral experience. The the debate is offered them I think Joe Biden obviously seem much more prepared but Donald. Trump's goal. In the whole thing, I think was to fluster him to put him on the back foot to try and reignite this narrative that he's campaigners tried on largely failed to stick to Joe Biden that he's too old. He's doddery. He isn't really fit to lead the nation particularly in a time of crisis Joe Biden for sure had the set pieces if you like of the debate but a lot of the marine lost in the fog of the war of the shouting match and I think for the moderator Chris Wallace for someone who really is considered as one of the best in the business to also have been kind of sat there in silence. For. Large parts of it not quite knowing what to do really did speak in lots of ways to just how extraordinary presidential debate this really was Christiana. You were watching on this side of the you watch the whole thing I. Don't think you probably went into it with a great deal of expectation, but it's safe to say you would. Have to be disappointed by the standard of what you saw. Tom I've watched many debates over the years in the US and you know to Thomas Point there I've I've never quite seen anything like that in the US. The the irony in some ways is that US debates. Political debates kind of jumping off with Thomas said tend to be rather stilted affairs What's interesting for me in part before we talk about the actual substance is that typically that's because of the rules you know often it's very stilted in saying you know this candidate, you have two minutes thirty second rebuttal to the next one one minute rebuttal to you. Now we move. Onto the next topic, this one was an open debate there was always after each question there two minutes for each candidate's is start with that didn't work very well already to begin with because there was a lot of interruptions. But then after that, it was sort of this free for all that very quickly descended into a shouting match essentially between the two candidates the other Issue for me or I think. The. That's that's worth. Pointing out is. I do think that one could say donald trump will feel like he pulled off a rather good performance. This is the persona that he has cultivated over the last three and a half years when it comes to his style as well as the ideas that he has put forward, this is who he is and I think he will feel that he had energized even those supporters that he has to come out I don't think he's won any new supporters with what he's done, but he's energized his own base and by as Thomas said, really sort of. Failing to let by Biden in really to make any strong points because of the constant interruptions. Biden didn't make a very strong mark. I would argue and so that that works in some ways if you want to speak purely political calculations that works to trumps favorite because people are going to be left frankly just depressed with the political process as a result of that the big. Well, we'll come to you rather autistic said was the substance. I didn't detect creative air in a moment but I just wonder on that point about trump he seemed to be I don't know this sort of a twitter feed made flesh. It was just a series of spiky pronouncements angry it was delivered in the style we've come to associate with him on that platform Were there any actual substantive communications that will have registered or was it just about him preview once again he can shout louder. Know the worst some substantive points that that were made and a couple of them played in in those clips that I thought were were quite interesting and highlighted the two different ideologies. One was on the pandemic and the Corona virus you heard Donald Trump talked there as he often does putting all the blame on putting all the blame on China for the coronavirus coming in he also there were a number of exchanges where it was very clear that for Donald Trump it's time for. People to open up again, it's time for the country to open up. He bragged about the fact that he had many people at his rallies. For example, at his political rallies. He felt that was a good thing and he sort of Josh Joe. Biden for you know not being able to get people to his rallies and there was this very poignant moment in that way where the quote was along the lines of trump saying people want to open up and Biden responded. quickly, people want to be safe and so that was a very clear moment in terms of the ideology of the two. I think that will strike people and the second one was on race, which you also heard there there are some very strong moments that again highlighted the sharp differences between the two when it comes to race and protests and the violence that is happening in the US right. Now, there was the bizarre moment you heard there about racial sensitivity training. WHERE DONALD TRUMP DONALD TRUMP rather very depressingly. I would say really double down on this idea that racial sensitivity training is somehow leading to a radical revolution in the United States in education he also refused to openly condemn white supremacist groups. There was this moment where he was asked to condemn the proud boys a white supremacist group and he did not So there were there were moments there that we're really quite depressing. He focused his attention than on Joe Biden saying. You, refuse to speak about law and order I. Think Joe Biden tried to answer that maybe Thomas can speak to this as well. It was interesting how he tried to answer the law and order question I wonder if that is something that you know might lose him some supporters on the left because he was trying to be quite defensive of the polices result of that. So Donald Trump really use his own strategy, what he wanted to do to effect in his world. Let me bring you in. Then on I guess looking from Joe Biden's pointed viewed along with Christie's rated the. was rather difficult for him to. Seize control of the narrative given trump's behavior sort of in the room. What did you make of his performance and would there be any areas that he may find he landed any blows I think Donald Trump's goal was purely to fluster Joe Biden and to throw him off his. Uncertain moments it worked. There were other moments when Joe Biden was alive to speak that you know if they do want to characterize him someone who is a little bit of don't reason quite fully grasp of himself for the facts then Joe Biden did show that he is an accomplished speaker. He had some ideas that were quite forward-looking Donald trump had none of those things and he. was questioned at at certain points asking well, what are your plans and there were really no answers. All Donald Trump wanted to do was as you put earlier Tom to shout the loudest because Donald Trump. Now, to win this election, he readings debate either bring big swathes of voters to his cause which I think last night's performance by him is unlikely to do he also therefore if he Can't that might try and do he didn't twenty sixteen and not is to keep people home to stop people effectively to make the atmosphere. So angry and Sophie Brier the people feel so disenchanted with the electoral process that they just don't vote at tall that was successful for him to a certain degree in two thousand sixteen, I think if the polls are correct and the polling arguably. Is more accurate is more detailed is more specific this time around than it was last time. Then I think that it would take a huge number of people to stay home for Donald Trump to sneak victory in the Electoral College. There were some reports after the debate last night that Joe Biden's team that some sources close to his campaign suggesting that maybe Joe Biden wouldn't take part. In the next two debates, if those debates are going to be like we saw last night because really heat does arguably have the most to lose here given his lead is so large at the moment I'm for Donald Trump. This isn't about sort of setting out to vision for America. This is about just sort of keeping and clinging onto power in the angriest way he possibly can, and I think as Chris mentioned I think that was if that's what the goal was that was pretty successful for him. Last night I think that Joe? Biden? Obviously prepared well, obviously prepared in detail but just a lot of those. A lot of those ideas set pieces that he had brought to the debate stage just weren't really allowed to shine through given just had extrordinary. The climate was on stage last night. It's always great to me. Thanks for being with us, tell us in Chris both the Monaco's. Team looking ahead to November Thomas and here in London Chris China here

The Breonna Taylor Case Must Be Reopened Immediately

The Breonna Taylor Case Must Be Reopened Immediately

"A whole lot has come to the light over the past forty, eight hours in. What we call the Briana Taylor case you know there's a part of me. That gets frustrated that we even call it the Briana Taylor case because a lot of ways. We should name it after the officers should name it after. Miles Cosgrove and bread, Hankinson and others. But we've learned a lot over the past two to three days and we're scheduled to learn a whole lot more tomorrow and what I really conclude as that this case is not over. It's it's not over just practically speaking there's a lot more to learn about it. But it's also not over from a prosecution standpoint and accountability standpoint. These officers particularly the two officers who shot and killed Brianna Taylor who were not charged. Those officers and many other people who were involved in this case from those who approve the warrant to those who falsified the warrant and everybody else up and down the chain who could be held responsible and accountable here there's a lot more work to do I I want to thank the team at vice news over the past couple of years. there have been a lot of complaints about the work conditions advice and even the low level of pay advice, and even a a culture of sexual harassment advice. And I know several people who have now just recently relatively recently started working there after all of these things came out. And you know they've said that the company is on a path to doing so much better and that's good news because we need. Credible fearless new sources involved in cases like this, and we also want them to to have a certain ethical standard and so congratulations to the team advice for the work they've been doing over the past few weeks. I I literally think they could win awards for this work. They Were the first people to get. Hours and hours of body camera footage from the scene. Now, we were always told that no police officers who were involved in the shooting of Taylor had body cameras. Now, we're literally and a lot of ways just forced to take their word for it. What we do know now though is that. Multiple officers had body cameras on when they arrived after the shooting and the team advice they have obtained and released. A good a good amount of that footage and it's Deeply insightful and incredibly problematic. We see several things in that footage including. Violations of policy. One thing we see is officer Bread Hankinson. After he has participated in the shooting violates a policy that almost every major police department in America has he then reenters the crime scene. This man was just involved in the shooting. And the Louisville Police Department has a policy that when you have fired your weapon and there's a crime scene, you're not allowed to reenter that crime scene. You are not allowed to participate in that investigation. It is a a major conflict of interest and he's not just there. He's asking people whose bullet is this WHO's bullet? Is that like he's in there we have no idea. How many times did he going there before someone had their body camera on did he change anything that we don't know what we do know is that he violated a policy that everybody in that department was aware of, and we we know this nice because officers have since been interviewed about about whether or not they're aware of this policy. But that officers there on the scene. Are telling him. You have to get out of here. And not only that you hear that in the body camera footage from multiple people saying two different officers you shouldn't be here right now. It was an obvious policy again though these men thought they were above policy. Again from how the the warrant was obtained to how they executed it. These men were were constantly. Going up against clear department policy, which shows not only frame of mind but shows just how they really saw themselves as above the law. Not, only that. We learned just yesterday that before the raid it was a no knock warrant raid where they for anybody who said they were they were not let into the home they broke into the home in the middle of the night. we now know that multiple officers raised red flags about the validity of the raid before it even happened. and. That's the right. Now one they never splits be clear. They never spoke up about this. We only know that officers were raising red flags about this raid on Brianna his apartment remember. Brianna was not a drug dealer quick quick to BS. There are no drugs in her home. Her Boyfriend Kenny was not a drug dealer and anybody who sang otherwise is lying neither Kenny nor Brianna had a criminal record. They. Committed no crimes. There was no evidence of crimes. There was no shadow of evidence of crimes there in in the apartment period point blank dot com there were no drugs there there. There was no illegal contraband or anything else in in their apartment in you know my position is even if such a thing was found in anyone's apartment, it truly does not warrant the danger that people are put in with these. No knock warrants. That's why the city of Louisville has now banned him. But we now have learned that multiple officers before the no knock raid, and after the no knock raid raise red flags about it.

Two-thirds of Americans favor a $15 federal minimum wage

Two-thirds of Americans favor a $15 federal minimum wage

"There's Something that very interesting in a time of extreme alien nation in US society and intense division. That people feel depending on whether they are a Republican or Democrat. But there's a new USA Today survey. Finds that Americans. Have some things that they very much feel in common. Whether they're. Republicans Democrats. Or independence. And This survey data. Is Very interesting in terms of what people are feeling. About the economy and the direction we're going. And one thing that is clear and was runaway in the survey day you know. Is that Republicans Democrats and independents. Overwhelmingly. Support. Raising the federal minimum wage. And the numbers are. Extreme for any survey today with the polarization. That, there would be similarity and how people responded to the question. And three quarters of Americans. Support raising the minimum wage, which is a significant increase even from just a year ago. So. This data has been going steadily up. As the federal minimum wage has stayed where it's been for Long Time seven dollars twenty, five cents an hour and I remember probably five six years ago. When That Waiver political movement started for fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage I was like wow. So you're going to support that. And it's been something that I've been pretty much tone deaf on is how People feel about. Making sure that the minimum wage does what it was originally intended, which is to allow somebody to earn enough to pay for life's basics which obviously, you can't do on seven, twenty, five, an hour minimum wage was last raised and two, thousand nine. So when there's that much consensus for it. Even the corporate interests that bottle up the congress are going to. End Up, having to agree to some level of increase in the minimum wage now, another area. Where there was extremely strong support three quarters. Of Americans. across the political spectrum. and. Very little difference again, among Republicans Democrats and Independents was about making sure that there's child care available. For what is referred to as high quality affordable childcare, which if you think about it, that is a very, very traditionally liberal position. And there was overwhelming support across the political spectrum. For doing whatever public policy would create. Affordable child care numbers were so strong on this that I'm sure it's at least partially pandemic related. Because There are so many people who've had kids who? Who's schools have remained? digital remote whatever. Zoom what? Whatever we call this online learning kind of thing that's going on or hybrid models where the kids are in school maybe as little as two days a week in person three days a week online it's played havoc with people's ability to work, and the polling shows overwhelming that people want government involvement in creating. Some form of program for. Affordable. Child care and I don't know where that ends up going in the political process but it was something that was very stark in clear in the polling. You know one thing also that is clear is that the traditional lines in terms of economics of liberal and conservative? Have not. Really been in play since the great recession started in two thousand seven that there's been a shift in people's attitudes based on the enormous. Disruption. Of the great recession. That people are more interested. In, government being involved in social services in ways that people generally. Did Not want if they were people who. Would consider themselves or wore the label of being conservative now conservative and liberal. See Eye to eye on things involving. Certain phases of the economy and That will move. What. Happens in terms of public policy it states and nationally.

Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable

"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

U.K. Government Imposes New Coronavirus Rules

"Talking about the new coronavirus restrictions, and of course, in the UK and of course, that makes the front pages everywhere and one of the one of the topics of course is whether the government payment for furloughs will continue. Yes well as as you'd expect those who said the Boris Johnson and his new announcements of are the main topic of most of the front pages. Of The Guardian picks up one of the big questions which remains of this furlough scheme. So where effectively the government was paying for workers not to go to work, but still to hold onto their jobs is due to come to an end in October. Businesses are having to make decisions by the end of this month as to whether they're going to announce redundancies and certainly in places like the hospitality industry. With already seen large numbers of redundancies being announced. So for instance. Premiere in which is owned by Whitbread, has announced it's going to cut six thousand jobs. So the chancellor is considering what he can do having previously said that he wasn't going to extend this furlough scheme. and The Guardian has been told that he's thinking of replacing it with a German style schemes to Watson German they call quits a bite. And in in France. They've been calling the show March. Pass. It people are effectively paid to go part time. So in under such scheme, the government would pay. People for the time where they're off, work your your boss would pay you for the days that you are at work but if say you randy working. Three days out of five then the government would effectively be paying for the other two. Now, this is something that the opposition and the trades unions have been pushing for. So the trade unions in the UK have suggested that there will be a scheme light this. paps workers could also do some kind of cool. So education training or something while they're away from work. So they're not just. Sitting at home on the days when when the government is paying not Not to do the normal jobs, but all of these things have a Costa. So that's the question that the government obviously has to weigh up. Now Belt has been cited as a model for the UK what's happening there. Yes this is interesting. We keep hearing of people in government talk about looking at Belgium and looking at some of the restrictions. So some things like early closing times for pubs have been taken from a Belgian model but interestingly, Belgium is now in a position where they say they can revise this and they're saying that one of the things that being very strict in Belgian reading. Say is that they had very strict quarantine rules. So it's actually been illegal in Belgium to go to zone in a different country they've called they call a red zone, and if you come back from a red zone elsewhere in the world, then you have to have a both a test and a very strict quarantine and Suarez reporting that many people despite this weren't respecting the quarantine when they returned from reds or Orrin Red Orange zones if they were notified that they've been in contact with somebody who had a coronavirus and so now they're saying they're gonNA shorten this quarantine. To make for seven days and after seven days, you'll be able to have a test. If your test is negative, you can go back to your normal life. If you'll test is positive you would have to stay home for another week up to the Fourteenth Day Eve if you don't have any symptoms and then also talking about what they call the famous bubble of five seven in Belgium, they have a group of five win and now having a rule of six in the UK, and they're saying that they could have a sort of a flag system work a traffic light. Telling you how many people you're allowed to meet in different areas of Belgium according to the health situation than which I will say sounds sounds quite complicated and depends on you knowing which parts of the country you're in at the time.

Whispers of trouble - listen to your plane

"If airplanes could talk what would they say? Well, they can talk if we learn how to listen and pay attention sometimes the languages subtle in a new sound or vibration. Sometimes they scream as when my friends number five cylinder unexpectedly dropped valve resulting in a broken piston, complete oil loss and prompt engine failure. Some sudden catastrophic failures are impossible to predict, but others can be predicted and possibly avoided. Ask pilots. A mental note of what our instruments usually indicate and look for deviations that could indicate A. OR PENDING FAILURE Just because the indication is still in the green range does not mean that nothing is wrong knowing the usual indications for our own engine will allow us to listen for any deviation and investigate the issue. I am fortunate and get to fly three hundred hours a year commuting to work as an emergency room physician. My Commute is from Statesboro Georgia to lagrange. One to two times each week, the fight one, hundred and seventy, two nautical miles and takes about seventy minutes each way in my highly modified North American navien. My engine was a continental I o five, fifty be that was freshly overhauled just a few years ago. I always change the oil between twenty five and thirty five hours instead of waiting until fifty hours. On two occasions, my engine instruments have displayed unusual oil pressure indications. The first indication was in June two, thousand sixteen during a return trip from New Mexico. The June weather was beautiful and via far but very hot all along the route home. During the flight the oil pressure ran about five to seven PSI lower than usual but otherwise acted normally oil temperature was less than two hundred degrees Fahrenheit for the entire flight. The engine ran great and continue to produce plenty of power I. nervously watched the pressure as it stayed steady in the green range and continued our trip home. The oil consumption remained as usual during that trip and we arrived home on eventually. Once home. The oil was changed in a new paper element oil filter installed prior to this oil change I was using a reusable stainless steel mesh oil filter that was removed and disassembled for inspection at each oil change. On Inspection, I found that the Steel Mesh had accumulated some residue that narrowed the openings in the Mesh. I, reasoned that the oil filter was restricting flow and oil pressure. So I returned to using paper element oil filter that is discarded at each oil change the oil pressure return to normal and I return to flying with my usual oil pressure of forty five to forty six PSI in cruise flight. That engine continued to run great and showed no problems. Regular oil filter cutting revealed no metal and oil analysis was always normal. So normal that I skipped cutting the filter and oil analysis when I changed the oil in December of twenty seventeen. I continued to fly Navien until late February twenty eighteen when something changed. I was flying to work and noticed my oil pressure was once again lower than. It was down into the Middle Thirties but once again remained in the green range and steady. I increased RPM from low cruise at two thousand, three hundred to hike cruise at two, thousand, five hundred and the oil pressure returned to the usual forty, five to forty, six PSI. The oil temperature was around one hundred and sixty degrees, Fahrenheit. which is the usual oil temp in cool weather for that engine. I was concerned about the oil pressure indication but I had seen this occurrence previously the weather was good and the pressure was backup to usual. So I continued on to lagrange. Three days later I returned home to Statesboro. Now comes the lucky and scary part. The flight home was night I F R and I flew the Runway three to approach into statesborough. Before departing I checked everything carefully and the oil pressure on run-up was normal. I watched the oil pressure carefully and flew home that high cruise power setting. I landed uneventfully but noticed that oil pressure at idol was a lot higher than usual. Low Minimum oil pressure at idol with the engine. Hot is ten PSI. But mine was always fifteen to twenty PSI. This night I was looking at thirty five PSI at idol with the engine hot. I had never seen idol oil pressure that high but was not concerned. I push the airplane into my home hanger and return the next morning to change the oil. The tachometer showed the engine had accumulated fourteen hundred and forty five hours since overhaul. Drained the oil and replace the oil filter and began refilling the crank case with fresh oil. When I decided, it was time to cut the oil filter. I found a large amount of metal in the filter. The oil that drained out of the filter was filled with metal flakes that look like silver glitter on my hand. What happened I had not cut the oil filter or submitted an oil sample at the last oil change. So there was no way of knowing what I would have found then. Had I, not cut an examined the oil filter on this oil change. I would not have found the metal in time and bad things would have happened on the next flight. When I disassembled the engine, I found the two of the main bearings had turned in the crank case, and we're obviously very near having a catastrophic failure. Now. This engine did not vibrate knock or suffering power loss. The only in-flight indication of any problem was changed from the usual oil pressure readings with the actual reading remaining in the normal range. As Buck my old flight instructor would have said she was talking to you. I was not listening carefully enough but survived just the same. This is the accident that never happened simply because I cut the oil filter. Had I, submitted the oil for analysis and waited for the results before flying again, the problem could have been discovered, but I fly too often to await test results. I would've received an urgent phone call from my oil analysis company, but it would have been after the accident. My current practice is to cut every oil filter at time of oil change cutting the oil filter while messy is free and gives immediate feedback. This simple process can save your airplane and your life.

"The biggie on her tended co-star Kenneth Brannagh. While I've also been a huge fan of cans for many years I've seen him. Obviously in film intelligent but I've also seen him on stage lot and I always had this enormous respect cannon thought he was. sort of `can-do everything I was. So we'll come running do everything. He can write direct APP saying dance. It was sort of it's a bit much actually he should leave some talent for other people but working with him. He just has this ability to put you at ease. He's so kind actually and very. very, very generous as the same. But has an ability to sort of keep the energy around the scene onset. Very focused but very alive. And I actually think it's partly to do with his sense of humor which is. Pretty, spectacular I I actually. Once. Waiting to shoot part of the cost sequence, which is so high octane and the emotional car in between two characters in that moment of the film is so dark and it's so there's so much violence in the air in that moment. And we were sitting waiting to shoot a part of that scene and he made me laugh so hard that I actually split the same amount address, and so I could say that Cameron is genuinely side-splitting if you will which he would enjoy. But now he's a joy. The film has scope. The scope of the film what Chris wanted to do? With the movie was sort of create. Of VOSS NECE and an expanse and a sense of. Because the entire world is at stake. In the protagonists mission, we really had to branch out across the Globe and put all those places on camera and because of the way that Chris Works and hate him wanting to always capture the authentic article whatever that is whether it's the actual, the actual country, the actual boat, the actual human. So there's there was a sense of of of when I entered the film knowing that we would just going to kind of. Me Personally and as an artist just have my kind of horizons massively expanded, which was what the experience of shooting was. As I think credit to our crew really because the crew that made this film would definitely. I'm exterior extrordinary human beings, but they worked so hard and we would sort of finish shooting in a country and pack up at nine PM. In the next day, we would all be on this plane and we would travel somewhere else and we would start shooting twenty four hours later and I think the kind of rigor of that. But also the fact that I think really really bonded US travelling that much definitely as cost it really did Sometimes Jane I would sort of meet up in different cities Buran and we would Have like a cup of coffee and Estonian and three days later, we would be having lunch in Italy, and so it was so kind of surreal and bizarre and. A A massive privilege to especially because of. Where we are in twenty twenty when I think back to just being able to travel out in the world and capture that people. But now sort of fantastic we did really because when people see the film, they can be in all those places. She this and I max the only way to go in my book. I Max Cameras. Put simply really make the experience larger than life, but it's also the quality of the film and I think the way that Hoy towel cinematographer shoots and he is really such genius. It just immerses the audience into. The cinematic experience, but I think watching something on amax inevitably. It hits you in a different way. Literally, you access the film in a different way because. It's almost visceral sort of a bodily experience when something is that that huge captured with the specificity of those cameras that I think. I don't think it's comparable really to anything that people will have same before Janet is now playing the near you.

"Welcome back to another episode I am your host Frederick Ben Johnson today. Once again on the hot seat, I have my good friend. Mr George Very. You may have heard his name in the industry. He's he's got or had fingers in all corners of the photography industry that didn't come out right but. Just. Men involved with everything photography. If you don't know his name, you probably have been to an event that he's been. Behind. Trains on. All that stuff. So George here talk about. What are we talking about the Porch Masters Live? This is your last greatest you like you just like attempting really hard projects and. Hitting home runs apparently. So this one was obviously. Cova head and we had our original conference which was going to be in Phoenix Arizona September ninth through the twelfth we had to make a big decision and it was okay. Do we just not do anything this year or do we try to do our virtual conference if you will I don't really love the virtual name I was like call it digital conference that's just me but yeah. We made that decision and moved back our dates a little bit. So we are September first of the twenty third three days we've got so much content some amazing content. We're doing things a little bit differently than I think what a lot of lot of the. Virtual trade show conferences. You'll see out there in the photo industry or just overall We went out this a little bit differently in that we prerecorded everything and not like prerecord Webcam or zoom kinda thing we prerecorded like shootouts and we had people at our studio We had people at Peter Hurley Studio in New York shooting, and so we've got these amazing shootout through Canon Sony and pro photo. We've got keynote speakers like a tab of the coffee from her famous Bravo show. She is one of our keynotes and she's just incredible Her brother show was Tabitha takes over. We've got mark seller. WHO's one of the most amazing photographers on the planet. You he's done countless numbers of covers for Cube, fair the role I think he's got he's done over one hundred rolling stone cover so I'm really excited of our lineup and we're GONNA do this in a really fun way. It's GonNa be really fun over the three days that we're doing this. We've got kind of a trade show section. We've got a content section. We're GONNA be giving away a ton of stuff and that sue it Nikki closer will be live here in the studio Kinda just introducing a all the classes sue out was just decided a couple of minutes ago. WHO's GonNa do for closing keynote keynote live so we're so most of it is prerecorded, we will have live host, but the content that's come out of this is off the charts I'm really excited. In you when you say you're talking about sue brice. Right, yes? Yes right. These Subaru you should put it in front of her name. Yeah. you WANNA have you set the stage on just a portrait masters for the folks that may not have heard about the conference? What what so Thank you for inviting me to the last one I was I was there in Arizona. Last. Yeah. It was. It was that's the word. It was a blast. Folks that may not have heard of the conference described what what this sort of you know the the soul of the conference is intended to be win it's real versus now when. Virtual or digital doesn't it seem like that was ten years ago. Does right. It's I feel twenty years older I, know. Like as my hair. So the Portrait Masters Conference, it's really a boutique conference in that we have only we cap it at five hundred people We have only nine speakers, one stage, one room. There's no breakout classes we really tried to simplify it and we wanted to give people inexperienced that they never forget. So we added so many different things to this conference that you won't see at other places. For example, we put shooting days in the. Trade show. So some of which are sponsored can have a couple of shooting base Pro Photo will have a couple of shooting bays and basically, and we do a bunch of our own. So basically, it's a model backdrop lighting and you just go and shoot and people went absolutely crazy fort when we when we launched it at it, really we kind of created like a Disneyland photographers almost where you could go in. You could talk to the vendors you could shoot, you could touch. You could feel kind of the things that we love about trade shows. Right you have that opportunity to to touch feel products but also like you could read a camera camera body from any of the vendors, the camera houses and Kinda go around the show and and shoot the networking part of it, which this is one that suit came up with but a red ribbon for someone that hadn't been there to our conference. Before if you're wearing a red ribbon, it was to show everybody else. Hey, come say hi and their brand new they don't know anybody and it was. Just, it ended up being such an incredible experience for people because you go to a trade show, you thought the Portrait Masters amazing show that you wanted to go to it's it's an expensive ticket it's eighteen hundred dollars, but it includes all your your meals, and some other things that we we do. But for the Red Ribbon, it's just amazing 'cause I've I saw a dozen times people just may be sitting by themselves or walking by themselves and other attendants would go and say, hey, how are you come sit with me and and it was just that networking part that that really kind of came out of it, which is really cool.

My Husband's New Hobby is Harrassing People

"Corona virus arrived in February and my husband retired in May, like the rest of us he is in doing what he planned gone. Ernie thoughts of traveling attending sports events or picking up a job as a substitute teacher I worried at first about what he would do when he retired he doesn't Gulf or fish and has never had hobbies. But I didn't need to worry he's found a new hobby and it's consuming hours of his time. He is now harassing people. The other day he spent an hour on the phone with our Internet provider. He found out he could save twenty dollars a month by cancelling his current contract and starting out as a new customer by the end of their conversation. He had lowered our bill by sixty dollars the day before that, he spent three hours talking to the insurance company. When he got off the phone, he said I got our premiums reduced and there's no copay. Last. Week, we got a check for one hundred and fifty dollars in the mail. What's this check for I ass? That's from the class action suit. He said class action suit. Yeah. That's why I was on the phone. So Long I looked through our records and found out we were eligible for some money. Today I opened an envelope and a fifty dollar check fluttered out. That's a refund for overpaying our dental bill. My husband said I was on the phone with them for three hours I had to speak with four different managers before the agreed it was their mistake. At first I was irritated by his endless hours on the phone. But now I'm enjoying his hobby I like watching checks drift in but even better than a cheque is my brand new stainless steel oven. Yes. You heard me right I I have a brand new stainless steel oven. Are Old of and broke and we have a yearly service contract for appliance repairs. The service company sent out a repairman, but he needed to order a part only the oven was so old the part no longer existed. My husband got out the service contract and read all twenty six pages until he got to the fine print. Do you see this he jabbed a finger at a line of print the size of fire ants. I can't see it even when my glasses on what's it say? I, ask. It says, if can't fix our appliance, they have to buy a new one. I didn't believe even with his success ed acquiring checks that somebody would give us a free appliance. I was wrong. It took him six emails, four phone calls and some texting back and forth. But we finally got to pick out a gleaming new stainless steel oven, several more phone calls and the service company installed it for free. I think you wore them down I said. I thought this was his biggest harassment success story but there's more talked our daughter into buying a service contract with the same company. But when her washing machine broke, the repairman couldn't fix it after a month of going to the LAUNDROMAT and washing clothes outside in a plastic kids swimming pool she called. Dan Do you have any suggestions we've been without a washing machine for a month. Did you read the fine print of your contract? My husband said I think you can get a new washing machine give them a call. She called them but she was too busy to spend hours on the phone and her husband is more like me. He likes the tenacity in the stomach for the necessary blitz Craig phone calls. So my husband went to work only this time it looked as if success would elude him. They sent another repairmen out, but it still doesn't work. Right our daughter complained they said, I'm not eligible for a new one. My husband escalated the situation. He even stayed on the phone when we were taking our walks, you go ahead of me. He said, as soon as we headed down the sidewalk, I've got a manager on the line. This went on for three days and then our daughter called with good news. She had a new washing machine. I can't believe it. She said no washing clothes and the kids poll. Today. My husband is on the phone with the mortgage company. I don't know what they're talking about, but it's a long conversation.

The Vicious Cycle

"How it finally broke southerners obstinacy and destined the salesman to start a at Philadelphia. January eighth nineteen, thirty, eight. That was my day. The place. Washington DC. This last real merry go round had started the day before Christmas and I had really accomplished a lot in those fourteen days. I my new wife had walked out baggage and furniture. Then the apartment landlord had thrown me out of the empty apartment and the finish was the loss of another job. After a couple of days, dollar hotels and one night in the Pokey I. Finally landed on my mother's doorstep shaking apart with several days beard and of course, broke as usual. Many of these same things had happened to me many times before. But this time they had all descended together for me this was it here I was thirty nine years old and a complete washout nothing had worked. Mother would take me in only if I would say locked in a small store room and give her my clothes and shoes, we had played this game before. This is the way Jackie found me lying on a cot in my skivvies with hot and cold sweats pounding heart and that awful itchy scratchiness all over. Somehow, I had always managed to avoid DT's. I had not asked for help and seriously doubt that I would have but fits an old school friend of mine had persuaded. Jackie to call on me. Had, he come two or three days later I think I would have thrown him out but he hit when I was open for anything. Jackie arrived about seven in the evening and talked until three. A M. I don't remember much of what he said but I did realize that here was another guy exactly like me he had been in the same laughing academies in the same jails known the same loss of jobs, same frustration, same boredom, and the same loneliness. If anything he had known all of them even better and more often than I. Yet, he was happy relaxed, competent and laughing. That night for the first time in my life I really let down my hair and admitted my general loneliness. Jackie told me about a group of fellows in New York of who my old friend fits was one who had the same problem I had and who by working together to help each other where not now drinking and we're happy like himself. He said something about God or a higher power. But I brushed that off that was for the birds not for me little more of our talk stayed in my memory but I do know I. Slept the rest of that night while before I had never known what a real night's sleep was. This is my introduction to this understanding fellowship although is to be more than a year later before our society was to bear the name alcoholics anonymous. All of us in Ainhoa the tremendous happiness that is sobriety, but there are also tragedies. My sponsor Jackie was one of these. He brought in many of our original members yet. He himself could not make it and died about Gaullism. The lesson of his death still remains with me yet I often wonder what would have happened if somebody else had made that I call on me. So I always say that as long as I remember January eighth that is how long I will remain sober. The Age old question in a is which came first the neurosis or the alcoholism. I like to think I was fairly normal before alcohol took over. My early life was spent in Baltimore where my father was a physician and a grain merchant, my family lived in very prosper circumstances, and while both my parents drank sometimes too much neither was an alcoholic. Father was very well integrated person and while mother was high strung and a bit selfish and demanding our home life was reasonably harmonious. There were four of US children and although both of my brothers later became alcoholic one died of alcoholism. My sister has never taken a drink in her life. Until I was thirteen I attended public schools with regular promotions and average grades. I have never shown any particular talents nor have I had any real frustrating ambitions? At Thirteen, I was packed off to a very fine Protestant boarding school in Virginia where I stayed for years graduating without any special achievements in sports I made the track and tennis teams I got along well with the other boys and had a fairly large circle of acquaintances but no intimate friends. I. Was Never Homesick and was always pretty self-sufficient. However here I probably took my first step towards my coming alcoholism by developing a terrific version to all churches and established religions at this school. We had Bible readings before each meal and Church Services, four times on Sunday, and I became so rebellious at this that I swore I would never join or go to any church except for weddings or funerals. At Seventeen, I entered the university really to satisfy my father who wanted me to study medicine there as he had. That is where I had my first drink and I still remember it for every I drink afterwards did exactly the same trick. I could feel it go right through every bit of my body and down to my very toes.

The Vicious Cycle

"How it finally broke southerners obstinacy and destined the salesman to start a at Philadelphia. January eighth nineteen, thirty, eight. That was my day. The place. Washington DC. This last real merry go round had started the day before Christmas and I had really accomplished a lot in those fourteen days. I my new wife had walked out baggage and furniture. Then the apartment landlord had thrown me out of the empty apartment and the finish was the loss of another job. After a couple of days, dollar hotels and one night in the Pokey I. Finally landed on my mother's doorstep shaking apart with several days beard and of course, broke as usual. Many of these same things had happened to me many times before. But this time they had all descended together for me this was it here I was thirty nine years old and a complete washout nothing had worked. Mother would take me in only if I would say locked in a small store room and give her my clothes and shoes, we had played this game before. This is the way Jackie found me lying on a cot in my skivvies with hot and cold sweats pounding heart and that awful itchy scratchiness all over. Somehow, I had always managed to avoid DT's. I had not asked for help and seriously doubt that I would have but fits an old school friend of mine had persuaded. Jackie to call on me. Had, he come two or three days later I think I would have thrown him out but he hit when I was open for anything. Jackie arrived about seven in the evening and talked until three. A M. I don't remember much of what he said but I did realize that here was another guy exactly like me he had been in the same laughing academies in the same jails known the same loss of jobs, same frustration, same boredom, and the same loneliness. If anything he had known all of them even better and more often than I. Yet, he was happy relaxed, competent and laughing. That night for the first time in my life I really let down my hair and admitted my general loneliness. Jackie told me about a group of fellows in New York of who my old friend fits was one who had the same problem I had and who by working together to help each other where not now drinking and we're happy like himself. He said something about God or a higher power. But I brushed that off that was for the birds not for me little more of our talk stayed in my memory but I do know I. Slept the rest of that night while before I had never known what a real night's sleep was. This is my introduction to this understanding fellowship although is to be more than a year later before our society was to bear the name alcoholics anonymous. All of us in Ainhoa the tremendous happiness that is sobriety, but there are also tragedies. My sponsor Jackie was one of these. He brought in many of our original members yet. He himself could not make it and died about Gaullism. The lesson of his death still remains with me yet I often wonder what would have happened if somebody else had made that I call on me. So I always say that as long as I remember January eighth that is how long I will remain sober. The Age old question in a is which came first the neurosis or the alcoholism. I like to think I was fairly normal before alcohol took over. My early life was spent in Baltimore where my father was a physician and a grain merchant, my family lived in very prosper circumstances, and while both my parents drank sometimes too much neither was an alcoholic. Father was very well integrated person and while mother was high strung and a bit selfish and demanding our home life was reasonably harmonious. There were four of US children and although both of my brothers later became alcoholic one died of alcoholism. My sister has never taken a drink in her life. Until I was thirteen I attended public schools with regular promotions and average grades. I have never shown any particular talents nor have I had any real frustrating ambitions? At Thirteen, I was packed off to a very fine Protestant boarding school in Virginia where I stayed for years graduating without any special achievements in sports I made the track and tennis teams I got along well with the other boys and had a fairly large circle of acquaintances but no intimate friends. I. Was Never Homesick and was always pretty self-sufficient. However here I probably took my first step towards my coming alcoholism by developing a terrific version to all churches and established religions at this school. We had Bible readings before each meal and Church Services, four times on Sunday, and I became so rebellious at this that I swore I would never join or go to any church except for weddings or funerals. At Seventeen, I entered the university really to satisfy my father who wanted me to study medicine there as he had. That is where I had my first drink and I still remember it for every I drink afterwards did exactly the same trick. I could feel it go right through every bit of my body and down to my very toes. But. Each drink after the first seemed to become less effective and after three or four, they all seemed like water. I was never a hilarious drunk the more I drank the quieter I got and the drunk I got the harder I fought to stay sober. So it is clear that I never had any fun out of drinking. I would be the sober seeming one in the crowd and all of a sudden. Drunk Est.. Even that first night I blacked out, which leads me to believe that I was an alcoholic from my very first drink. The first year in college I just got by with my studies and that year I majored in Poker and drinking I refuse to join any fraternity as I wanted to be a freelance and that year my drinking was confined to one night stands once or twice a week.

"Brosnan strikes on it throws from the outfield to the Catholic All that stuff I found that fascinating and I when I said to some friend who wanted to take me to a game and angels game. I said let's see feeling practice. He didn't say a word and they was no feeling practice. A couple of guys come out and toss the ball around but you know feeling brackets and I miss that. I miss lots of things. I miss seeing a manager like McGraw standing there. Coaching third base but his hands on his hips. I I miss the involvement of of of all players. What it was they were doing. It bothers me today that a manager can sitting home sitting in the Dugout and called the next pitch for a pitcher I I like a game to be returned to the players more than it is and and I I'm rambling now but the their stuff about the game today. That bothers me relax of it I have. I haven't frankly Scorecards and very very old ballgames scorecard of a St Louis Browns double header against the Yankees back wind. Each game was decided by one. Nothing Skoll and each game took about fifty five minutes to be played and the crowd and the audience was two thousand people outlet. Saint Louis speak the browns and the Yankees. All all that stuff fascinating. It's part of my history Hey you can't take away from me that I saw a lot when he was just a kid playing baseball in the major leagues things of that nature. So I WANNA think about narrative for a moment in the game that Arnold wrote about Cleveland Starter. Bob Lemon not only pitched into extra innings but also hit for himself in the top of the tenth with two outs and two on and I know that lemon was a very good hitter by pitcher standards especially earlier in his career But it's practically impossible to imagine that same scenario playing out today But it did allow Arnold to have consistent character of a pitcher who was present for the entire game which enabled him to right toward the end on. The mound was a tired very courageous. Gentlemen who had gone to the limit of his strength and Resources and like other courageous gentlemen would go a little farther in the game that you wrote about Robert. Twelve pitchers appeared and so I'm wondering if for narrative purposes would you rather had a single pitcher who could serve as a protagonist or did the constant cycling through pitchers? Actually give you more material or quiz. I'll tell you. The Greatest Day of pitching in all of baseball in history took place on December on July third. Nineteen thirty three call. Hubbard went in against Tex. Carleton each had a no hitter behind them. That game went eighteen innings. Giants wanted one nothing against relief pitcher proper proper. Hanes I guess. His name was who also picks no hitter. And that was it turns out the first game of a doubleheader and Roy Palmer Lee went up against DVD game and beat Dean. Nothing like fourteen caudillos processed. Now one nothing nothing and the catch. Gusman cousy across the entire game for the drivers. Now these things just don't happen anymore throws two hundred pictures in the game But nobody today pitchers one hundred games a hundred pictures because there's always gonNA fall off at one hundred one He knows it. Rails knows it so out. He comes after five or six innings. And that's that's a pity I I. I like to longevity of of hubbub eighteen innings. He's giving a six six in the eighteen innings and didn't walk anybody in the eighteen innings. Your stuff like that sticks with me. It's just it's it has it has history has has kind of music youthful when I would say that I would much rather have have had what Dan had. Which is a couple of starters and a few relief pitchers because when you've got six or seven or eight or nine pitching changes it the theme of Oh look. How many relief pitchers there are these days that gets old real quick fast so different thing to say about each one of of the relief pitchers that entered the game and I think I hit most of them but it did get to be really too many and I go on and on in the book about how. It's not great for the game to have so many pitching changes especially toward the end of the book. I talk about that a lot but I wish I wouldn't have had to talk about it because I think it's an unfortunate part of the game today. I'll I wanted. My game was to get rollie fingers into IT I. I spent a lot of time with fingers while I was reporting the book and he was such an interesting character for so many reasons and I and I did have this terrible fear. 'cause I I was stuck. It had to be that day for reasons. We don't need to go into but I had the game on that particular June tenth. Had to be the one that I was writing about. And if the brewers had no really collapsed early or if they were running away with it and there was no fingers I would have to. How the hell do I get this guy into the book but he made it possible for me so this you know I? I love relief pictures. I I loved Harley Wilhelm that and And the guy on the on the Yankees a murphy. I think his name was. Let's I I wouldn't twenty games because Murphy as me from the seventh inning on so You know that that's important stuff. I I'm thinking of the guy who puts that one to one count fix to convict words and and and that guy that pitcher was out of the game at somebody said well he probably said to Derocha on where where I got my man I and so I asked him about that and he said if I said that would have beaten to a pulp I said it to follow fees in spring training and I. I was allowed to get away with that as a joke right done. Little really pitching is wonderful. I you know I. I'M A sucker for the game with the changes. Great changes that. I don't like we know is in the music and the scoreboard exploding and and I went to a game and angels game. A friend had tickets season tickets and Brian. I went there to a game and the seventh inning. V V Wade. Who came up and said dessert is being served and so we went out into the hallway where they had a line of desserts. And this this is more important than watching the ballgame apparently and leave. That's not so to me. The game is a game and that's the entertainment it's not. It's not the also foolish. It's one thing I admired about Vin scully. After Jerry Doggett had left he never broadcast with another man in the booth. It was always been scully doing themselves. Yeah if I could add add something about this about arnold absolutely correct notion that the game is the important thing. The very first game that I covered as a journalist was a spring training game in Fort Lauderdale playing there and I was in the press the very small press box and I guess I can say his name Maury Allen Very Nice Guy from the New York post was sitting at. My right eye was writing for the times and Alan couldn't have been nicer to me you know. He's showing me the ropes and I was so excited to be there at my Fr- you know covering a game in the press box and I you know I said Menu have the luckiest life you get to spend all this time. Just you know with baseball and you get to sleep and live live baseball. And and he said Yeah. I like everything about it. Except for the God Damn Games and he got up and walked out there. There are people like all right. Well we just have a few more here than we will let you get on with your days of Arnold. We have access to really great statistics. Today that tell us things about players from earlier eras that people may not have even realized that time but they're still something to be said for seeing players in person and USA so many legendary players that most of us have only ever gotten glimpses of in in black and white clips. So you know Ruth Gehrig Dimaggio and Jimmie Foxx and Mellat you mentioned in Carl Hubbell and on an I and and Babe Ruth. Yes yes so I WANNA ask you. What was it like to watch and even meet Babe Ruth and second? I wonder whether any other great players come to mind to were even more impressive in person than they are when we read about them or or only look at their numbers years after the fact reach to my mind was hack Wilson who who was one of the great hitters in the National League who who approached. The magic of sixty home runs here one year. Fifty sixty eight. Something like that He's a short stubby guy. He you know you don't see guys looking like that anymore and I went to a game fittings breaches and watching Hack Wilson being run all over the CEO hitting shots all over the place and the game was over we. We uphold bunch of kids waiting outside and hat in and the cardinals came out and we jeered him said. How'd you like it when Lindstrom if your hand and Blah Blah Blah and he stood there taking it all taking it on things you know and finally went up to him? I said happy scorecard. And he statham he's GonNa kill me and grab my pencil. And he signed and every kid had had has hacked Wilson. Sinus is a lovely moments with with a fire in one of his worst days which is wonderful. Yeah and what are your memories of Babe Ruth who I think you briefly encountered as you mentioned in the book. Well he loved us so we love him. He loves kids he just loved kids and the kids back and I when you come out of the seventh inning for Saturday whoever else in the media we want the bay. We want the best. We knew we could go back in. We knew enough about the rules. That's the way we saw one of the day. We WanNa day just wonderful and then seeing him pitch day of the nineteen thirty three season the Yankees were out of it. My father came into the kitchen. My brother and I were doing the dishes and said boys we let it go to the stadium tomorrow. The Dave is GonNa Pitch and they move pitch. I see here. The home runs and he hits nine inning and he did the Red Sox so it was all legendary. Just see all that stuff so I saw crossing the street for five days later I ran up to him I said gave I saw you kid and I said how come you didn't out anybody. And he grasped he said. I want to go 'cause behind to earn their keep his rival world. Her is these these things..

"So we've got a fun conversation for today. Do we have a phone conversation? We will spend some other conversation being respectful about baseball. And I I was doing some writing. I'll shocking kind of events and developments. That has not made itself known quite well and as in the course of that I had occasion to go back and watch part of like just like the least consequential parts. I want to be very clear. The least consequential parts of the Red Sox Yankees series in London last summer. And I don't know if you recall the the first game of that series that they played where just stays world series. Roughly seven thousand runs Between them and the game in question will I recall it starting when I was eating breakfast because you know funny timezones and I live in Pacific time and I had time and occasion to breakfast and then go to the gym and then meet a friend for Beer and some snacks after the gym in the game was still going on the game just followed me through whole day and I remember that experience of it and I was listening to you. Know all the goofy. All the goofy commentary and INS and outs you know bumpers in and out that they were doing during that to remind us that England has a queen and also they play cricket. They say words funny. There are lots of US next to Os. We don't know why and Gosh. I just Miss Baseball so I just really do. And I know why we can't have it and that's that's the right choice but man would be good to mark time in a way that's comprehensible to my brain. So boy agree. Yeah it's great to have. Cpl and K B O and all the other varieties of baseball but the ones that we were weaned on the one that we're used to with all the people that we know and the teams were used to rooting for. We missed that one and as much as we miss watching baseball from afar we also miss going to games that communal experience. It's very easy to mock people waxing poetic about the green grass and the crack of the Bat. And yes. Those things are kind of cliches. But they're kind of cliches reason. Those things are pretty cool and you miss them when they're taken away and so. We thought that we would devote this episode to remembering what it's like to go to cames via three books about going to a game so this just seems like the perfect comfort that we can offer right now on a day that the little league world series was cancelled. I mean what's more depressing than that? There's little league. That's the saddest possible headlined but there is a genre of baseball book that is devoted to the idea of going to a single game and writing about that single game in some amount of depth. And it's been done in a few different ways and from a few different perspectives. But the most notable entries in this genre are a day in the bleachers which came out in nineteen fifty five. And that's by Arnold Hainault and then in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and Oakmont published nine innings and in two thousand eighteen rob neier published powerball and in all of these books the author goes to a game writes about going to a game writes about all the players in that game all the experiences in that game and make some broader observations about baseball and life and human nature in why we care about sports and how the game has evolved over time and I have had a chance and reason because of this episode to go back and revisit those books and we've both been reading a day in the bleachers over the past week and it really is nice to at least remember what it was like and sort of bittersweet but it brings you back to that moment and hopefully that moment will be back for us sometime soon but for today we wanted to get all three of those authors together on this call and have them tell us about the experience of writing those books and talk to each other about their experiences and I thought we had a really great conversation that I think we all enjoyed I agree it was lovely so we will get right to it. Let's bring in our guests.

"Podcasts as well as at Bloomberg dot dot com we are seeing the repo rate that got a lot of people all bent out of shape a couple days ago come down further as New York fed engages third day of its Repo facility trying to inject com into this basic plumbing of the financial system here joining us. Tom Kennedy Global Head of macro and fixed income. Tom Strategy at J. P. Morgan Private Bank here in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studios Tom. I'm wondering if we could start talking about the takeaways from his full episode. Does this mean that the Federal Federal Reserve allowed its balance sheet. Just get two small as it allowed to shrink with quantitative tightening. Yes yes all right so why why yeah yeah the amount of liquidity that a a very dynamic economy needs is impossible to know inexact real time you can see it and see indicators years of a certain amount of excess reserves which I'm going to call the quantity for the sake of this discussion that you need for the economy to function the analogy is that I use in my own personal life when I was in college didn't have a job wasn't really spending much. My checking account could have relatively small balance in it. It was very small. Trust DOC fest forward. You have a family you have a job. You have debt you have more liability needs and you need to have more cashing checking checking account same analogy can be applied add to the US economy. This economy has grown remarkably over the last ten years and the REPO market signals. This week are telling us about one point. Three trillion in reserves is just not enough liquidity and I. I'm fully aware of the technical issues of the supply and demand that happened over the last couple of weeks but I think we can for for most people out there smooth through that Adam say. There's just not enough liquidity in the system. Despite the popular belief that liquidity is awash in the system and repo markets this this week have been telling us that the Fed comes out with temporary operations. They're just putting cash and liquidity into the system they. This is a temporary fix for a permanent problem album. They are going to need eventually to have the the balance sheet continue to expand that's not. QE Just to make sure there's enough liquidity in the system shouldn't be inflationary. How do they do it. Give them a good point. They said the mechanics are the same but the objective in the end goal are different in a place where you need to make sure sure there's enough liquidity. You're injecting just enough to make sure markets. Function shouldn't be inflationary because you're just making sure you're checking account for the sake of this example has enough to meet your demands. QE is by even more bonds that are that are necessary for liquidity in any attempt to really pull your lower and stimulate late inflation different objective same mechanical implementation that needs to be done. What if the Fed decides doesn't agree with you and decides this is short term blip. We don't need to do really anything. We don't have to grow this ballet much. Repo rates will continue to remain high and this week overnight repo traded north of nine percent for period of time. I it's quite simple to realize that if you're receiving a yield on an instrument that you own let's just say it's a ten year treasury that holds a coupon of two percent and to finance that security at nine percent. Obviously that's a negative carry position and can't go on for very long so levered players system. If the Fed doesn't address this will not be able to function so the Fed currently has a one point three trillion dollars of non treasury or mortgage backed securities debt is liquidity for this purpose correct the reserves the excess reserves on the liability on the liability side is about one point three zero point three trillion dollars. How much should it be. I don't know I don't think think they know either. I think that all they're realizing is it's not enough right now and this is the this is where the art of central banking meets. What I think is perceived you've science. The economy is so dynamic. They don't know the on this on this day. We need one point four trillion. They don't know so they have to feel it. A little bit and the repo market is is sending them a signal. They don't have enough okay so the consequences are pretty diorite that we could end up with liquidity crunch. Even a downturn or some sort of seizure user levered players could get out of the water. could pull back this private debt private equity. you know all sorts of levered currency funds looking at that that right. I'm wondering on the flip side. The Federal Reserve comes out starts to buy a lot more bonds. We're just trying to manage the situation. How do they distinguish that from. I'm trying to ease financial conditions yeah the communication. There's a communication challenge with this. This hasn't been a part of their toolkit for ten years. They over the next six to eight weeks the head of the October meeting there's going to you're going to hear lots of education from them to distinguish the two and that's going to be vitally important. There is no one in the United States better position to do this than the new fed. They're going to do a great job doing it but there's there needs to be more education on this and I expect them to start that a soon as possible. Did you hear anything from chairman. Paul yesterday on that issue yeah I think he I read him saying we're going to learn a lot over the next six weeks as they tried to feel where the level of excess reserves is required and I also interpreted him as they're going to do a lot of work on how much the balance sheet needs to grow and my expectation out of yesterday's that they're. GonNa come up with announcement in October about how to start expanding the balance cheating in to meet these liquidity needs just not do. QE Just real quick given your experience at the New York Fed. Do you think that they will get it right eventually or do you think that this will remain a real problem album hundred percent confident. They're going to get it right the team there can do it. I think the art of doing this is is what's important here. They had to feel where the stress points were sure. I think it caught them by surprise quite candidly this came a lot sooner than than myself and I thought that I think they thought as well and Powell more or less admitted that yesterday but they're going to fix it and these temporary market operations are vital and they're doing them but again. It's a temporary fix. They need the permanent fix and they'll give it to us. Tom Kennedy thanks so much for joining us. Tom Kennedy's global head of macro and fixing come strategy J. P. Morgan Private Bank educating us and our listeners on the repo market doc clearly a challenge ahead for the Federal Reserve to manage that part of the yield curve.

"I mean, they can take the actually asks is will you jump off of a cliff, by the way, another major I think west wing scandal crossover. We know that shonda rhimes is a big fan of the west wing. And we also know that shonda rhimes is your hip hop moniker. That's right. I almost forgot my hip up identity. He up shonda rhimes with Z. Yup. And Sean is spelled shonda not shown up the finale of scandal the seven season final episode. The finale of entire series is called over a cliff, and that's a reference to the sort of gladiator credo of Libya pope for whom her cohorts and colleagues would go over a cliff, and that's a phrase that's often said over a cliff. You are the gladiator gladly follow you over a cliff. Heading off a cliff. I wonder whether that subconsciously the spark came from this over a cliff idea in the Bartlett White House, right? I suspected it. Yeah. I was going to say early on. You know, we've talked will at this point is like the appendix of the west wing body kind of a vestige of Oregon that. Yeah. I mean, if you want to go to the bother of cutting it out you could, but you could also just leave it. And but even so he has a moment early on just as he's waving goodbye during the cold open where his sum up of this revolutionary Mideast peace agreement. They've made is peace in our time. Right. Kind of a bummer that he's echoing Neville chamberlain's famous quote upon the signing the Munich agreement, you know, the appeasement of Hitler's Nazi party said that's his take on the deal that they've just made. I mean, it's just kind of more of the. Same from will even a casual moment. I I was wondering how you felt about that line. Yeah. I don't I don't recall, exactly. But it's more of the same. Well, I guess speaking of removing appendixes appendices appendices, we see Leo under the knife in this episode, very ER. That's what I was and between that and Donna in the hospital room. There's been a lot of ER in the west wing. I wonder if John wells felt this need to bring in more hospital scenes because ER is still this ratings powerhouse. And maybe they felt like they needed to drip, some of those juices onto the west wing to bring back I figured it was just we already bought the open. Chest cavity stuff. Why not use it a second time? Sure. Amortize it over to series, by the way, the CJ. Greg Brock dynamic is pretty fun. Who's the new White House chief of staff, that's how you about Leone. The Gary comes Chicago and unconventional choice show. I felt we were awful thirties comedy. It does make me miss Danny cannon a little bit. But I'm glad that there is someone there to have a platonic kind of sparring relation. Ship with whenever I see him on screen Sam Robards, I think when I see the two of them on screen rather. I think there could be a little. Yeah. Could have been a little romance. There unspoken. There's nothing really that suggested other than something about the two actors and how they interact I could see it. They have chemistry. They do. Yeah. I liked their back and forth. When Greg is speculating about the new White House chief of staff, and then he says well Jeepers Brock you care about Leo too. But there's a power vacuum here and your editors don't take puff pieces. And you haven't owned a typewriter since the Coolidge administration. I would never say Jeepers to would not. Yeah. You would I think she would especially when later this episode. She says well heavens to Murgatroyd, do you know, what cartoon character, and we discussed this before I'm just have dejavu all the time though. I don't know that we we have discussed this specifically. But I like that when you asked me that you almost went into the character's voice. I was really good snuggle FAS heavens to Murgatroyd. Murgatroyd heavens to Betsy then can you just keep going and say have we discussed this already? Have we discussed this?.

"The Turkmen people gnaw on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth. He's nuts. I love about this is that is all true. What that is. All real is a really that's fantastic. The things made me laugh. It didn't occur to me even to Google and see I thought it was again, some sort of maybe casual racism, I don't name check him in the episode, but Turkmenistan's first ever president was a guy named supper Mora Niyajov. And here are some of the things that he brought about one he banned the use of lip synching at public concerts in two thousand five because of the negative effect on the development of musical arts. Where does he stand on tick tock? Yeah. That would probably be. Yeah. It would be blocked. The here a couple of dog related things that I really like one he banished dogs from the capital because of their unappealing odor. But the thing that Josh says about the people gnawing on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth. That's true. Is that I watched young dogs when I was young they were given bones to gnaw on to strengthen their teeth. Those of you whose teeth of fallen out did not chew on bones. Wow. So that was his advice was that the Turkmen people should choose on bones to strengthen their teeth. I cannot believe this all real. It's all real. I mean, it just it's really a thrill to read about the stuff. He outlawed opera and ballet and circuses for being unturned like in two thousand four he said that mentioned no longer have long hair or beards. And then just some of my favorite ones. He abolished the Turkmen word for bread and replaced it with Gurbansoltan his mother's name. Hats off to this guy. Because if you can't have fun with being a monarch or ruler.

"You know, I might chalk it up to some idea that they have been working together. So long that they assume some level of telepathy on the other person's partner like, you know, that this is what we have to do. It should go without saying perhaps. Yeah. Do you know what the current child tax credit is? No, I believe it's two thousand dollars per child up from thousand I think the Trump tax plan in two thousand seventeen brought it up from thousand. Two two thousand and is there a cap on the number of children, I won't get there. So I haven't really looked into I topped out at two, and that's all she wrote. Folks. Do you feel slighted that you get nothing for Watson? No Watson is not much out people. Sometimes call me and call Lindsey his parents, you know, they're like, okay. Go to you know. Oh, yeah. You wanna see your dad, whatever it doesn't feel right to me. Someone asked me the other day. Are you his owners or his parents and all it's like neither? But you don't expect the government to subsidize his care. No come on fair enough on the IRS website. It says credit as much as worth it's two thousand dollars per it doesn't say that. There's a cap on it as apparent let me just warn you kids over the course of their lifetime over over. The course of the first seven years cost more than two thousand a year. This isn't as I can see if you're trying to work in angle, forget it. You're not going to turn a profit on this. Okay. So they had these screw ups screws the screws up, and it's a little bit embarrassing, but it's private and then they have won a big one. That's very public and really in front of the worst person that could possibly be speaker happily till becomes in. Josh calls him on the phone, and they've got absolutely opposite messages a four hundred dollar tax credit. Yes, sure. I'll put him on speakerphone. Hello. The president's going postal over this tax credit practically at appeal to seal and now may be able to talk him down. But you're going to have to move on peacekeeping. Now, josh. Toby? Hi, it's pretty sad. It's a funny moment. And I like how it's played even if it's a tough by again, I did like the moment. Yeah. When half lease like, okay, put him through turns on the speakerphone. You just get to watch Richard shifts face. As Josh dot speaking. Yeah. Steven Culp is funny in the scenes. Yeah. When I said that that I think this episode felt a little unfair to Josh one of the moments that especially felt out of character for me was when he said to the president, you know, if you want someone working out of Leo's office just shout, if you need anything he does it in a way that is sort of inelegant, and in the moment, it feels like a betrayal or something in the president reacts as if it is and to me Josh is the last person who would ever do that we've established this about him. You know, he doesn't wanna be the guy. He wants to be the guy the guy counts on I agree. Although I saw Josh the way you do even in that moment and felt that it was a particularly sensitive run nerve, president Bartlett that was seeing it otherwise, I didn't take it as an actual betrayal. I saw president Bartlett's is that he was a little bit salty about it. Right. But I took Josh at face value. The the way you would interpret him as just saying if you didn't eat anything, right? It's not. Grab rather than trying to jump into a power vacuum. Right. Yeah. Okay. I think it could've played that way too. But for me, whatever it ended up not bristled at that. But then, you know, Toby takes a run at this at a similar kind of conversation. And he does it in a much more elegant way, I think I care about his surgery, but we're fumbling the tax Bill. Our diplomatic strategy is a is a game of telephone. And these are the things were spending time on. Yeah. He makes it very good point. But there's also there's a dark and intense moment in that scene when president part listening, look this was out of the blue this..

"By the fact, that the way it's presented to us in this episode is one to me it felt like an acting award because it's Allison Janney. Like, of course, there's only one name. She's one four days. Everybody loves her. She's an amazing actor, I think it's an interesting. Choice. It was definitely interesting to be like, oh CJ is going to do it. I think putting CJ in that role is gonna make for an interesting dynamic, and I like it. But it does feel like Josh has been the deputy chief of staff this whole time and has stood in for Leo lots of times. I mean, even from the beginning of Mandy me, and she answers to that being said, they do a good job sort of buttressing the decision in the end of this episode with all the stuff that comes before it in this episode. We see Toby and Josh being completely uncoordinated the whole thing felt unfair to Josh Lyman as a character. Well, that's another one of just keep using the same word slightly silly aspect to the episode. Why don't they just discuss how this is gonna work Leo's bedridden even after things start to go initially awry when Toby and Josh have clear miscommunication about the number of children, the cap that might be put on this child tax credit. They don't sit. Okay. Listen, we gotta take five minutes and discuss how communications are going to work. And if there is a hierarchy the kind of sort of dance around the idea just continually keep making mistakes and have these miss communications and tobe even at one point goes to president Bartlett says, hey, have you thought about how we're going to deal with this? And the fact that they don't ever just hammer it out instead keep having these substantive and comic mishaps feels a little odd. And I agree with you. You know, if Leo is going to say, there's only one name, you would think it would be Josh Josh or Toby seems like a more qualified candidate or you know, Cording to what their specialties would be not that they're more competent than CJ. But you would think one of them temperamentally. I don't know if I see Toby working so well as Bartlett's chief of staff, I think it's a question of temperament in the end that lets me by that it shouldn't be Josh especially after everything that happened in season five, I think part of my reaction to that is looking. At seasons one through four Josh Lyman where yes, it makes sense. You know, he's he would be the natural successor for Leo. But after everything that happened in season five he shot himself in the foot on a few occasions. And I think he's revealed that he doesn't have the best temperament for the kind of high level diplomacy and even handedness that the chief of staff job might need. He also has a hubris, right? That could be a quick downfall in the job due respect. You never thought we get a deal, and we are going to be scraping faces off mount Rushmore. It's a news roadblock. It's so big and so out of control, and so clearly headed for a fall type situation that we've seen that in a serial fashion from Josh. So I guess what that also might disqualify him. In addition to Toby from being a great candidate yet up, and I think the choice of CJ, certainly interesting. It's a great new interesting unexpected way of the show to go. But the credibility of it all bothers me a little bit. And also the fact that. We go from this episode finding that the president can't even wrap his head around appointing..

"Talking about episode three from season six it's called third day story. It was written by our dear dear friend, Eli. It was directed by our dear one dear because he hasn't been on his often friend Christopher messiah. No. And it first aired on November third two thousand four in this episode. The White House is in chaos without Leo who suffered a heart attack at Camp, David. But before signing the Middle East peace accord, the president wants the staff to get the support of congress and the United Nations, Josh and Toby or pulling in opposite directions without a chief of staff to direct them CJ. Does the best she can to maintain some order and Donna returns to work, but she's in wheelchair and Charlie reveals that he could graduate from Georgetown. But he's putting it off because he's afraid of swimming. There is no swim test for Georgetown's graduation, by the way, there is a swim test for Cornell. Really? Yes. But my parents attended and they're fine. Fine swimmers as a result there, some notable things about this episode that I thought we could mentioned off the top one. This is the first time that Melissa FitzGerald is given a guest starring credit. That's funny. I did notice it. Yeah. I was wondering if I just hadn't noticed it before. But she's got that. Nice upfront credit. Yeah. But ago fits Armin Mueller Stahl is also given an upfront credit. But then I didn't see him in the episode and I had to go back. And he's on TV. We don't see him in person. So to speak in episode screened in screen interesting. Yeah, he got a special guest star credit for that is a Hollywood heavyweight. Another thing about this episode that is different from others is we get the title across the picture of the White House as we're entering. We don't get our trademark black screen between the previously on and the start of the episode. We get the title third day story in the bottom as opposed to. Centered over black. I don't know why that that is nor do I maybe it's just them trying out new stylistic moves, maybe they misplaced that black card. I don't know. How it all works, technically? Yeah. Somebody left in the art department closet. I just throw it over the White House. What would you think of this episode? Love it. It was fun to watch has some great. I think ally dialogue, and there's some funny stuff and lighter, and it's sort of a little bit of a respite from some of the more dramatic were even soap operatic elements of the preceding two episodes, although there's still darkness here. But I don't aspects of it struck me as silly not always in a good way. What struck you silly the CJ Josh eating contest? I think is silly like although kind of funny, and I like when she walks by the Roosevelt room, then has a second thought and comes in. And then she after taking his brownie way, she comes back again takes all the brownies. It's funny that made me laugh, but an all seems to the Genesis of it seems to be our friend is fighting for his life and here eating a Donut. I just didn't really get the. That's it. I'm challenging you to week of not eating isn't that? I don't know. It seemed maybe it's a quibble to refer to a minor comic subplot as inorganic. But it's not like, I'm not aware of CJ being a health food nut and Josh's being a chronic -ly bad eater. It just kind of came..

"Younger women hungry for political office on the left but yeah i mean i think that that's that's certainly the case and i'll or a you know one of the things that's definitely true is if you look at the data among you know using trump's approval rating is perhaps a proxy for this particular thing what you saw within the data was that overwhelmingly the people who hated trump the most were eighteen or twenty nine year old women overwhelmingly his approval rating they're in any particular month pretty much never got above 25 percent maybe a few months it was twenty six or twenty seven but dipped as low as twenty one percent and that's far different than it is among the sixty five and older crowd where even at a low point which was the end of the year was still 40 percent among sixty five and older women so you know i think that the concentration where the energy is within the parties right now it's really among younger people that really really don't like trump and younger women in particular and that's probably going to drive what goes on and you continue to see a demographic problem for republicans right way if you're not acting people the certain gender of a certain age group then longterm you're gonna you're going to see ito people who might have been leftleaning republicans decided to be centrist leaning democrats whatever it is you know like there's a certain hurdle that i think is faced with when republicans sort of missed this kind of wave army mobile certainly point out that trump's approval rating if you go by age group is and you control for parties worst among the youngest republican than his among the oldest obviously there's timed to repair that over the long term you know politics as never stationary things tend to move but at least in the short term yeah let's start drove up your was of may be any final thoughts on the women's march in particular whether flip thought like sustained bigger smaller different from the one that happened a year ago and whether says anything about the sort of wave that we've been discussing here but perry in dc uh you know in the three days of the shutdown talking to lawmakers like where does.

"From past shutdowns we saw that most people in fact pretty much forgot the effects were short lived and that by the time the elections actually came the polling had returned to what it was prior to the shutdown whether that be the ninety five ninety six shutdowns with gingrich versus clinton at the two thousand thirteen shutdown which were senate and house republicans again's barack obama so we're we're talking about this because it is an issue in shutting down the government's a big deal at least for certain people in our population but i think over the long term unless this issue pops up again which i suspect that may very well but if this is the one shot deal with this i don't think that this ultimately has a large affect so obviously the takes are flying in the spin his the spin his spinning pair you want to talk a little bit about how both sides democrats republicans are trying to frame this end of the shutdown might mean both sides are kind of trying to claim it as a win he i mean the republican fang we didn't give up on darko the democrats are demanding a vote on daca and the pair dr emitted now happen and the democrats are saying well you committed some kind of vote on duck us so we go we wanted i actually think in this case the republican position makes more sense to me because even so they've mcconnell's committed to some kind of vague vote some time before february does not clear what they are voting on knock not it'll be a democratic idea by person idea republican proposal and also the senate was always the easiest thing the real question about daca is always been what can pass where the majority of republicans in the house and what will donald trump's sign and so to me the democrats didn't advance very far either one of those questions in this debate in getting a senate vote in exchange for a shutdown do them all the progress correct me if i'm wrong but some what that what the democrats are trying to try it out to you is that mcconnell has promised a debate by the end of this week on immigration and that's you know they're sort of trying to take that out is something as a small victory it's part of me wonder.
