Police unions dig in as calls for reform grow
"States across the US are in their second straight week of protests over the killing of George Floyd by a police officer many hope to see police reform they have reached a current though and that's often the police unions to talk about the role of police unions and the power they hold over reforms we have Booker Hodges assistant commissioner at the Minnesota department of public safety and let's bring it round the lord a police union labor negotiator former police officer and the former president of a state wide police union in Texas run thank you so much for joining us well thanks for having me we're getting a lot of comments from the moment given example one listener tweets it seems all other unions are under attack but police unions only gets stronger what accounts for this and then Richard tweets the left is finally realizing public unions make it very difficult to remove crappy employees teacher police if you suck at your job you've got to find another job these these questions Rauner kind of centered around what makes police unions different I think and could you answer that for us to can we look back to the history of police used to get the answer well sure and I think the I always call it kind of the duck billed platypus of unions they're in a union but they don't look like other unions and there's a big reason for that because of the nineteen nineteen Boston police strike it pretty much wiped out unionization in America until really into the nineteen sixties they do said paternal so ninety eighty five ninety percent of all the police United States do not belong to the AFL-CIO they have one chartered union and it's a it's a small percentage so the police were late getting into the labor firefighters had an international in nineteen eighty S. all the public employee unions construction units you know that some of those are a hundred years old so police were late to the game they were used in many times as strike breakers and picket lines and so they didn't gravitate in there tend to be conservative by nature so their unions look different but they're still just working people their blue collar working people who form the groups who have become adept at using the American political system to increase our wages and pay in for job security so I'm not ashamed to be in a policeman or representing the police they can only do in a increase their strength or get their message out it's all illegitimate nature so different than people that are anti gun and pro gun you know free speech no free speech in America everyone has a right to speak out on things so well of concern to their members we got this tweet Booker from Tracey Wheeler and she mentions what Ron just said about the fraternal order of police Tracy says the police union's name the fraternal order of police is symbolic of the fact that it operates like an old boys club officers who speak up about bad cop behavior are ostracized in this culture and I want to put this book or in the context of what we heard earlier from you lie at the the Marshall project who was saying that often times African American cops don't want to join leadership because they don't want to be part of that culture yes so yeah I think there's there are some differences between African American officers on what offices regarding union membership I mean mia love the vast majority of my career I was in the union I was a union president you know so I didn't have some of those issues but a lot of the other people I know who are in other organizations did have issues regarding how that they didn't feel that the union represented them or didn't defend them as strongly as they did white officer so I I I'm fully aware that that issue does exist within the labor unions run it sounds like you wanted to respond to that as well well that issue exist in America so you could say I'm a seventy two year old white man who grew up in the south where our view the world may be different than a black person my age who grew up different but men and women officers have different views about things Hispanic officers have different views are Asian awesome so that's in it in and of itself but you have to say policing in America is eighty five percent means there's been no woman firefighter president that I'm aware of any part of union in America ever so so we look at it and then we say yes but they appear to be older white men yes but there haven't democratic elections welcome back officers in America only about twelve percent of the police no less maybe nineteen so that's wrong but the pollution is not hurting anybody the city hires the city provides room recruitment in six cities were even worse off when it comes to female officers their lesson about twelve percent of the police which is half the number of Canada Australia and other European countries so thank you in that profession is eighty five percent median and whatever sixty seventy percent white means that white men tend to gravitate up yes but lots of officers don't become involved in the
Trump set to pull U.S. from Open Skies surveillance treaty
"And then before you go I want to ask you about the president talking about pulling out of a major arms control treaty it's known as open skies accord open skies treaty what we know about this also this is a tree that's been around for thirty years now it's designed by thirty five different countries and what it allows is for a country to fly on armed surveillance over other countries to see if they're preparing for any sort of war some attack on another country the thought being that this would be a deterrent if for any countries attacking one another president trump is upset with this because he feels Russia is not living up to the terms of the deal and he is basically saying there's no reason for us to abide by this if they're not going to as well so he plans to notify them as of tomorrow that you just spoke about it publicly here at the White House so you could say they've already been notified that they want to pull out of the street this is a bigger issue though than just the United States and and the Russians is also has major implications for our NATO allies which are also signatories of this treaty and their proximity to Russia makes it very difficult for them because it's it's highly likely now that Russia will basically say that those flights from those other countries cannot fly over Russia as well and that would hamper the ability for some those European countries to know if there are troop movements from Russia on their borders so is this this could be a little awkward for the United States and some of our NATO allies but I think at this point they're kind of used to some of that awkwardness in the otherwise French election yes okay Ben Tracey crouch us
Clutter vs Hoarding: How to Live Clutter Free
"Tracey. Welcome thanks gave. Thanks for having me. I'm super excited. Well it is. It is my pleasure to have you so it. Seems like decluttering organization hoarding. It's everywhere these days about a decade ago. The television show hoarders. I think was probably like the big flagship but Home Organization. Just seems like it's really hit fever pitch. Why do you think that is you know? I think it's a combination of our easy access to shopping. So cheap. Consumer Goods Amazon delivers in the day. You can get your groceries. I like to joke without even having to put your pants on into cardiac liver right away and then also we live in such a world of visual bombardment. Pinterest instagram facebook. That does being sent these messages of how people think our homes are supposed to look you know before it just used to be a magazine a newspaper television but now it's like you see the perfect home on instagram. You see it on Pinterest. You see it on facebook you see it on the magazine you see it online. You know there's ten different channels coming out. You and I think people are really starting to take stock of how much stuff they actually have and how. It's not really working for them. One of the things that I noticed in preparing for this show is that you really talk about clutter. You don't talk about hoarding now. Is there a difference between hoarding and clutter or de-hoarding decluttering? How do you separate those two concepts? Hoarding is an actual disorder. I am not a therapist. I cannot diagnose it there couple of great resources online. If you're worried that you have cording disorder for a long time. They thought that hoarding was a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder. But in the last couple of years they have separated out as its own disorders so it is an actual mental disorder. Clutter is just having too much stuff. So and that's not to say that there's one way that everybody should live. You know I'm a single person. I live mostly by myself. I have a certain amount of step a family of five absolutely going to have more stuff than I do. But the way that I describe clutter. Gabe is that clutter is the stuff that gets in the way of what you WANNA do. So for instance. You WanNa have dinner at your dining room table. But you can't because it's covered with three four five days worth of mail. The kids sports equipment a sweater. You need to return to your mom or you want to get dressed in the morning without you know having to pull everything out of your closet. A lot of people just get dressed out of their laundry basket because their closet is so full of clothes that they can't access it and use it as a tool so it's really the difference between too much stuff and then that's stuff that you have the clutter you've written in emotional story about so you we have created some story about why we can't let go of it. Either what I called the seven emotional clutter blocks and we all really have at least one some of us have couple more. But everybody's got at least one and what are the seven emotional clutter blocks so clutter block number. One is what I call. My stuff keeps me stuck in the past. You know. These are my parents whose kids have gone away to college yet. They still have their bedrooms. Saved exactly as a museum. This is keeping close that we can't fit into anymore. This is our staff telling us that our best days are behind us and to a certain extent. Isn't that also where our memories come from though like how do you separate the stuff that keeps me in the past? Because they're closed that haven't fit since high school and the stuff that keeps me in the past as in family heirlooms. It's when we attach to that right when we think. Oh I'm going to get back in those clothes you know. Of course the family heirlooms are the things that you look at. You know they make you happy and they remind you of your grandmother. I'm not saying that step. I'm saying if you have a closet. The other day and her linen closet re of the shell the five. Shell were full of artwork that our kids had made in preschool and elementary school. Her kids are grownups now. Their doctors so this stuff that her kids had created which while one or two of the Turkey hands were fantastic. I don't know if she needed all Edebali Right. Like sweet memories and that reminded her of it but she had three shelves in her linen closet that she couldn't use because she was stuck in the past. She didn't want to let go of when her kids were. Little makes perfect sense and then clutter block number two cutter. Black number. Two is my stuff tells me who I am? The best way to describe this clutter block is a client. Said to me with her hand on her hip. How can I possibly be lonely? I have two hundred pairs of shoes. You know this is our identity. This is the designer labels this is. I'm not lonely because I'm out of the sale at Nordstrom's this is really using our stuff as our identity and do a Lotta senior downsizing so it helps seniors move from lifelong homes into smaller spaces and I see this a lot with my older gentlemen. Who used to fix the car? Used to do the handiwork around the house you know really identified being helper in the family and now that they're older and maybe can't get up on a ladder. It's really hard for them. To let go of who they used to be. Emotional clutter block number three. If I am correct. It's the stuff that you're avoiding absolutely and full confession. I am a clutter block number three. I have it. I go a week without opening my mail so this is not opening our mail. This is not paying our taxes. This is not doing the business of being grown up and the interesting thing gave about this one. The people who tend to be very very successful at their job almost always seem to have letter block number three that they're really really successful work but then when they come home they avoid doing their grownup stuff. I completely agree with that. I feel that my day while I'm at work is when I am an adult and my time at home is when I can enjoy life and a lot of the stuff that I'm avoiding is stuff that I know is just going to make me unhappy. We'll just go with GONNA say angry unhappy annoyed so it can wait till tomorrow right absolutely and also this is an absolute block. Because you think I'm so together at work of course got it together at home. I'll get to that stuff eventually. So it's this story that we've told ourselves but what happens with this clutter block especially you know. This is the one that can end up costing you a lot of money right. You don't pay your taxes or you get behind in fees and interest like this is the one that can really do some damage. Also when that's like just put your big girl pants on and open your mail. Just do it. You GotTa do it now. This next one really spoke to me personally because I think that I'm definitely guilty of it. So emotional clutter block. Number four is my fantasy stuff for my fantasy life. I am so guilty of this county. What what do you? What do you fantasize you're GONNA be or should be so for me? I just keep thinking that I need to hang onto certain things because I'm GonNa need it in the future for example as soon as my podcast gets on. Sirius Satellite Radio. I'm going to need all of this equipment. This equipment is not doing me any good and when I'm even going to say when Sirius Satellite Radio comes a calling. They're not gonNA want my crappy equipment but I just believe if I get rid of it. I had limited my choices. And that's really the emotional part right absolutely. I believe that this stuff is connected to my success. Even though your going to tell me that it's not and you're right by the way you're you're so right and the great thing about that example in Vancouver Sherry is that you know what Sirius Xm radio has you studios beautiful equipment. They have the best of the best so while I love that. That's a goal for you like get the fantasy part out of it. Get into the reality of it again. That goes back to. You're not living the life that you're living right now. You're not happy with what you have. You're not focusing on. This is the equipment that I used to do. My podcast and it works. It's fantastic all this other stuff. I don't use but when I look at it. I remind myself that I'm not where I WANNA be. Not necessarily in a good way. It becomes a stumbling block absolutely this one. I see a lot around fitness equipment. These are the people who go. You know what I need to be. I need to be a rock climber. My life would be perfect. If I'm a rock climber. So they go out and they buy all the equipment they don't rent it they don't borrow it. They buy all the equipment. The shoes little bags with the chalk and they get up the rock and they're like I'm scared of heights or I don't like this at all and then they've gotten all this stuff with this thing that they think they should be and they're not and then they get angry at themselves. Why should be that? It's like no if you're not a rock climber you're still a really good

Please note I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But I have done a lot of research for the show and Tracy's desperate rationalization channelization of Steve's murder is consistent with what psychologists Albert Ben Dura has described as moral disengagement which can explain people's willingness leanness to engage in harmful behavior in a nineteen ninety.

The Global Economy: US manufacturing survey shows worst reading in a decade and the WTO downgrades the trade volume
"We begin today with the aforementioned slice of the American economy manufacturer ing the Caveat here is that you can't can't tell the whole story of this economy from just one number of course but a report we got today about. US manufacturing is causing a little bit of Aga it comes to was from the Institute for Supply Management. It provides an index or whether the manufacturing is expanding or contracting from month to month. That's Sharyn o'halloran. She's professor of Political Economy at Columbia. The manufacturing index came out. This morning is pretty straight ahead. If it's above fifty fifty manufacturing is expanding below that it's shrinking what we've seen in this latest report is that the index spell below fifty forty seven point eight to be precise signifies. A worsening of manufacturing tring conditions in the in the United States that is manufacturing industries are facing a downturn. Today's number was in fact. The lowest is the index has been in more than ten years manufacturing is not the largest component of the economy is a significant component when there's a contraction in manufacturing other types of sectors will probably follow because it could be layoffs it could be different types of negative activities that are going to happen as a result of it so what is going on here. You know really indicates to me that what's driving. This is our lack of new export orders. That's Timothy Furey. SM He chairs the committee that puts out the survey in question this is more of I think it's more more of a trade throttling it's it's caused a lot of bottlenecks across the global environment not good for the manufacturing economy yeah not good for the manufacturing fracturing. Konami all spink trade bottlenecks and throttling of the global environment let us turn now to the WTO the World Trade Organization. Shall we twice a year the economists honest the WTO get together and go through their models in their crystal balls and tell the rest of us how much trade they're expecting in the next couple of years and you know where this is going right. Their latest I forecast out today shows a sharp drop in the growth of trade from where they were expecting just six months ago in April. Thinking was we'd see trade volumes grow two point six percent this year now just one point two percent its backdrop so we asked marketplace's. Tracey Samuelson to figure out what has changed in the past six months this forecast is downgrade from what the WTO was expecting in April and that was a downgrade from what it was expecting last September Coleman knee and economist in the research in statistics division at the WTO says we're already seeing slower trade growth show up in the data. What's happened is the trade growth in the first half of the year of Twenty nineteen was much listen we expected so we were forced to revise our forecast down pretty substantially. He says there is a number of reasons why there's slowing economic growth in major economies uh-huh and regions in Asia and Europe a bit in the US and that reduces demand for it for all kinds of goods including imports. It's lying. Economic growth doesn't totally explain the slowing growth in trade volumes. There's something else what could it be since April. The trade dispute has only escalated. Fan Vino is the US chief economist SNP Global. We've had the United States add more tariffs on now three hundred billion of Chinese products and still more tears to take effect in December. Eastward facade is a trade policy professor at Cornell has been a fundamentally evaluation about what the prospects for dissolving the retention. It's become clear that the US China trade tensions are here to stay so precise says businesses are reevaluating their supply chains and putting investment plans on hold which can ultimately mean less trade.

Trump considers dramatic escalation of trade war, stopping Chinese firms from US listings
"We begin today in the realm of what if what if the trade war gets worse what if in addition to tariffs and the currency ward that's been threatened. What if the trump administration puts limits on the actual all movement of Money Bloomberg first reported that the White House has been thinking about D. listening Chinese companies from American stock exchanges and putting limits on how Americans can invest invest over there. We should say at this point that the Treasury Department says there is no plan to block Chinese companies from listing on US exchanges for now but as marketplace's places tracey Samuelson reports to get going this whole idea is a bit of a tone change restricting investments would open a big new front in the trade tapeworm says Dan Rosen with the Rhodium group as big as the A to a trade is between the United States and China the financial interaction. It is a much much larger number about four million dollars a flows in both directions according to Rhodium estimates Lee Miller is CEO of china-based book a data and analytics six firm. You've got over a trillion dollars market cap of Chinese companies. They're on US exchanges. You've got enormous opportunities to invest in in in Chinese financial and capital markets going forward what would essentially do is it would shut off a good portion of the investment universe from US investors esters. Miller says US regulators don't have access to the same financial information about Chinese firms listed on U. S. exchanges as they do American ones so strengthening those requirements me aiming sense. If you're Walmart you are subject to a certain set of standards. If you are Alibaba and you're behind the Chinese firewall here then you're able to you push back against this oversight and it's it's becoming a bigger problem. Rosen with Rhodium group says imposing investment restrictions isn't unusual against adversaries. The series like Iran North Korea Cuba. What's very abnormal here is that we haven't at all as a nation or even as a government decided that that's how we you want to consider the People's Republic of China. He says historically. US policy has tended to treat China as more of an economic opportunity than a threat. I'm tracey Samuelson for marketplace

They're actually after the trial and had some kind words for them. For my mother said at the very end of the trial that the Shetland family came out to my mother are and introduce themselves and of course she knew they were and they said you know we just wanted to thank you so much. three extend your thanks our thanks to your God or finding our daughter so quickly they were so grateful that we get her as quickly as we could and get her home with the Lord word and we're just so sorry that she had to see her in that condition and we wish that she could have met her under a different ah under different circumstances and they talked about what a lovely woman their daughter does and I just remember you know even now makes Pasto go little bit tearful just thinking of this family that has lost their daughter or their pride and joy Chia dennard walls both she was at the you you know peak of her life and there's such a kind family that what they think about is me.

Elizabeth actually decided to pursue a career in psycho therapy to help others not only did she help you know survivors of rape and sexual violence like she just mentioned but her own traumatic experiences allowed out her way to connect with veterans about some of what they are going and have gone through and then all says prising -ly been able to help better and and where I work with soldiers to come back from war through just very very small understanding I have to finding one body and knowing how much saying one body mess with me and screwed me and thinking about my soldiers his wall for multiple body stumping their people they knew from being their friends. Being you know mass graves. It's something that they've never seen their lives but it gave me just a teeny when of contact but it it it did help battle in terms of being able to relate to the veterans as well.

"What you just heard were some very very old and poor quality audio clips from the interview with Tommy Bradley and as you can hear he says very creepy stuff. He believes the killer was in a state of mind where he wanted a girlfriend. He talks about Tracy going to buy oil about her going to Tom and Jerry's but these were all things that had been reported on widely in the local newspapers I so is this creepy yes. Is it a smoking gun. Does it implicate Tommy in any railway. No you know they had this interview with Tommy Bradley then they had another call and Bradley. There's two days later. Bradley was making even more stranger claims and the police thought it was and they still didn't know what to make of it right because I mean they had been receiving all these calls from psychics I mean how do you know how to differentiate what to you but you have to run everything of course then they did they did and so in the months that followed these calls. The police were following following leads but they never took their eye off of Tami Bradley because they had a weird feeling about him and the detective kept over poor with with him and decided just to keep them talking 'cause they had no idea what he would eventually say and tie Bradley seems like oddly invested in it and they just got a weird feeling. It's the same thing you get when they anticipate. Criminals coming back to the crime scene are coming to vigils like this guy had he was like a moth off to a flame in terms of this case in this report kept going for months and even though Tommy Bradley hadn't shared anything explicit elicit as far as things that weren't available to the public he had this gut feeling and he was just going to keep this going so with this revelation. The police are starting to think that this guy could be a viable suspect. So who is he exactly Thomas. Paul Bradley was a twenty six year old from the Center Point area of Alabama which is UH supper of Birmingham. Yes he had gone to the local Bible College and he was extremely religious and belonged to a fundamentalist gentlest church he wasn't married and he had recently been divorced and had no kids but could Tom Bradley really be Tracy's killer and he was good looking. I mean he he was like his attractive sort of babyfaced mustache theory ordinary looking guy hi so they didn't know I mean he was kind of like a Bible thumper dude and it was sort of anyone's guess and that's the thing it's like is he. Just this fundamentalist Celeste. is He really seeing visions from God or like. Is there something mess up about him that we're reading to. Are we reading into this too much. so the detective he's got the rapport with him and he asks him sort of like nonchalantly. Have you had any other visions about traces murder and Tommy. It's like yeah so they meet again two days later and he said he actually believed that he could take AAC the police to key locations from the murder so over two days he takes them around all these different locations in Birmingham and the Birmingham area any actually points out the exact location where Tracy's car had been found which was not released to the public. This is some that they head to the public and he also directed the officers to this bridge and that was the same one that Tracy had been found beneath and when they arrive there he asked the cops he was just like stopped the car and he proceeds to speak in tongues and you know just sort of doing this sort of gibberish unintelligible sounds for thirty to forty minutes while he's gripping the dashboard and the door handle they all get out of the car and he explains that the victim's body had thrown from the opposite side of the bridge where it was actually found right so the police are just like Oh my God because it's all adding up I mean this guy knows things that no one should know and they're not sure if his dramatics are are his attempts fainting psychic ability or or feigning innocence I mean they're they're all trying to read his body language like in what he's doing but no one's doing that successfully because it's just very bizarre but they had very very many conversations with Tommy and they were all recorded and on these audiotapes Tummy Bradley describes visions he had actually as the killer in an one recorded session. He said in his his direct quote he seemed girls that he thought were attractive attractive enough to go out with even if he had to kill them before and before we continue I think we should bring it up he. He's like in Ohio in Saul yeah he really is an og and sell he's an og install. In the more we learn about this I mean I don't think we should get new conversation. I think we should do it at at the end but that hadn't occurred to me until just now but let's get into it after bright so he also gave graphic details about the murderer and Tracy's final terrifying being moments he said quote she knew she was being killed when that you know when that knife started in her third time and she uttered her lost conscious willful volition thoughts to God and towards herself in towards her friends and mother at that time and that was that I don't know what's happening to me but I want y'all. I want y'all to find the sky so these interviews with Tommy Bradley continued in one of them. He set something that essentially sealed his guilt in the eyes of law enforcement. Tami Bradley says there is there something else about her license. What's the killer may have burnt it with a cigarette lighter?.

"Months I used to think well I bet that you know whoever dumped her body was probably in those would would call us and is now gonNA come find us because they had says that the police had said you know we had found hearst of quickly they wouldn't have been able to get an ID that quickly and able to work on the case set quickly and there was no her body Hatton decomposed composed at all so in my mind that meant that we had done something that would upset this killer Thursday on CBS?

He's like he's he said more in depth interviews like well you know I worked with her once she was is this pretty girl and I wanted to see what her husband or boyfriend. What the deal too same thing as googling absolutely people's significant others are so the following day day when James found out about tracy being murdered he calls the cops right away as he should as you always said and he gives a description of the man when he had seen that was he was waiting on Tracy? He described the person as a white male thirty to thirty two years old with dark with dark hair worn in a ponytail. Now the police had something to go on and they had a place. It's a start looking for clues. which was Tom and Jerry's gas station right so the police go to Tom and Jerry's and they speak to employees there? In that employee tells them that yes us. He remembered a blonde female around twenty six who was wearing a restaurant uniform coming in and asking for assistance in selecting two courts of motor oil then found Tracy's disabled Black Chevy Monte Carlo nearby on Eighteenth Street on the south side of Birmingham Immingham but before doing this even I mean the guy who worked at the gas station show them it was back in the day when you had a cash register that just spat out about the long strip of sales so we showed them like listen like it was like a dollar sixty nine for each court and they show them like this was the sale they they had a time stamp. I mean it corroborated exactly with this other witness that said Brench made him very credible and made them believe the account of the person tracy swift even more after they found Tracy's car mechanic inspected the vehicle and found that it had about starter and that you know once it was cranked fuel would run out of the fuel pump and the engine would stop running in that they also found that the car was to courts over overfilled with motor oil they ask Tracy's family about this in the dodd in this. It's heartbreaking because it reminds me of my dad because every time I have a problem with my car I call my dad but that said you know I. The one thing I taught tracy was how to fill her own oil and it's the only thing she knew how to do so. If there was something wrong with a car she thought she was out of oil or low and oil and it just wouldn't something wrong with her car. She had to be oil the oil she wouldn't she got oil and she tried to rethought herself and it was like the car was to courts over like car is fine but she's like Oh. My Dad taught me it's oil we all and she tried it. Just breaks breaks my heart so police were canvassing this entire area and they've he then eventually found two empty quarts of oil. Will you know oil cans with price labels like those in a fifty five gallon garbage can near where her car was found so at this point they're starting to piece together. A Theory Tracy left work but sometime on her drive home or car broke down. There were no cellphones back then so think about this your only choice as a woman. Your car breaks down to accept help from a stranger or do I walk somewhere. That's that's terrifying. It's terrifying. Those are your only choices both would be considered now probably a high risk choice. You don't have another choice at at that time so those were her choices and basically they believed a stranger picked her up offered to help her brought her to buy oil and then went back to her car with oil when the car still didn't start this stranger offered to drive her home in sometime between then because they know the oil went into her car because her car was to courts overfilled so they know that she made it back to her car but sometime hi between then and when she was supposed to be driven home she disappeared so they have a good theory and they believe that that's when she was killed over handful of weeks leaks James Parker assisted in making a composite drawing of the man that he saw he reviewed hundreds of photos of mugshot books and accompanied members of the sheriff's department on several several occasions to southside nightspots attempt to spot the man that he had seen on the night of the murder gyms Pirker was even put under hypnosis no says to try and shake some loose memories or identifiers of the suspect from that night but nothing ended up working and we've talked about this before another episodes but you know something that I despise was was starting to come into this investigation and it was. I think it's important for this episode. It's another thing it's eighty six to to to put us in the correct time understood this was commonplace. We saw Austin Katie Beers was like this was big in Katie bears like helping to solve it and this was later than this the only reason why I like it it is in the sense and what we're talking about. Everybody is we're talking about psychics and I don't believe in it but what it does for for me what I what the only reason why I think it's okay is because it gives the local press another thing to write about and keep keep it in the consciousness. Keep it keep it in the news cycle. Oh a psychic came and whatever and you know it's it's pretty much denounced right now l. but you're right Alexis in the eighties. It was like Oh a psychic came in and they were they were using psychics back in Boston Strangler. They yeah I coming back in the sixties. There no doubt no doubt eighties Joe Doubt Nine these they were still doing it subsided however it was one of the top shows like long nyland museum was still topping Charts Pass twenty ten. We'll people still believe I mean of course but I'm saying like it's not it's it's crazy when you think about it. In terms of police work now but it only became like quackery and the nineties late nineties yeah so they start calling and especially given the circumstances of the case because we've got the glitter the devil worship the severe mutilation of the body and also the intense media covered so they're all coming out of the woodwork now of course because they probably feel compelled to basically they're like clairvoyance decision Asian goodness so months passed and any new leads were coming to a halt so they had nothing to go off of in terms of who or why or what or any thing else they looked for Prince. They looked for everything that they could given the limitations nations they had as far as their technology and they had nothing all they had was this little speck of glitter had been months with no movement and the investigation instigation when another bizarro psychic kind of thing came in it was November fourth when an attorney named Bob Bob Sanford called the detectives working on the case he said that his client named Tommy broadly claim to be having quote visions from God related to Tracy's murder case and he wanted to tell them all the information that he now so the next day the police met with Bradley and his attorney and the attorney said to the police Lisa Bradley would happily share whatever he knew as far as his visions. If the police would tell them why he was being followed the police were super puzzled by him because he was not being followed especially not by them and the police at this point. We're thinking that WHO's probably suffering from a mental illness possibly experiencing some kind of a paranoia so they did a cursory interview but nothing this guy was saying was really holding weight and he also didn't share any info that wasn't already publicly accessible by the news and the media right and you see this a lot when you find for example. If if there's a child found you've got like two hundred people coming forward claiming to be they're lost mother. I mean for some reason when when these kind of cases that are highly controversial come into the spotlight it resonates with and especially back then to remember. We're talking about the eighties before the Internet before everything you see it a little bit to see it lasts now back then though l. when things weren't Google Bulla whatever you would have people that would try to inject themselves into the store taste.

You're still alive when it happens. They concluded that Tracy had been dead at least eight hours prior to the discovery of her body and the day after Tracy's autopsy she was buried at Elmwood cemetery and Birmingham. There were hundreds of people who attended the funeral and a lot of them more strangers who simply wanted to comfort Tracy's family after hearing the horrific details of her murder there was an outpouring of support support from the community but with that comes an incredible amount and outpouring of media coverage because things like this. Let's just didn't happen in Birmingham Alabama. This is not just another typical homicide. Panic started sweep through the streets when people learned learned of the manner in which Tracy was killed. It's something that was like a punch in the gut to everyone in the community who would do this and why I mean we're dealing with an incredible amount of fear because it wasn't just she was stabbed until she was dead. There was a time of mutilation it it seemed driven van by something sadistic and scary and you know this is a wholesome Bible Belt community. They just did not know what to think about thefts and Elizabeth was experiencing the effects of what she had seen in witnessed so after finding Tracey's buddy. I started to have nightmares for we you know I'm not there at the time decided it was time to have me read the Ted Bundy Book. I'm a little bit sometimes.

I didn't really understand what was going on. then I would like I said wake up screaming. I was terrified so police start their investigation and they're trying to first piece together Tracy's movements from the night she went missing. She told her co workers that she was exhausted and she was going right home. She left she walked towards the post office. which is a block away where she had parked nineteen seventy-three any three black Chevy monte-carlo so they figured out that Tracy probably made it to her car so she must have encountered something between tween where she was parked and her house and they went through her inner circle the men she dated friends family?.

The Trump administration is hearing testimony this week from businesses and industry groups affected by a pending fourth round of tariffs on Chinese imports. If an acted these tariffs would cover an additional three hundred billion dollars worth of products. Meaning nearly everything we buy from China would face a tariff that's left, some tech companies scrambling to try and shift their supply chains away from China. Others are lobbying to try and prevent the tariffs. But all face a similar question. Whether to pass the extra cost of tariffs along to consumers. Let's talk more about this in quality assurance, a segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. See, we covers tech for the Wall Street Journal from Beijing. We talked about how tariffs will affect various consumer technology with sick. The iphone, for instance, a lot of phone parts come from China. There were some reports from J P, Morgan that said that if these terrorists take place than it would could raise the cost of an iphone of an iphone by v. Fifteen twenty percent and unclear whether apple had pass those costs and consumers but we're talking about one hundred fifty dollars increase in the price of the iphone ten if that happens so you mentioned, I phones already are there other products that we should be looking for in terms of the impact of these tears. There's a lot of component so anything that requires a computer chip might be affected. A lot of computer chips, and other components are, are manufactured out here and there's also some indirect costs that could rise because of these tariffs to for instance, stuff that an internet provider like Comcast wireless provider like AT and T buys, they need cell phone tower quit -ment. They need internet routers, and that stuff is facing tariffs to so while AT and T would be, for instance, paying those tariffs. They might raise the cost of your wireless plant because they have to pay more for that equipment. Right. And that's the choice companies face right now as their costs rise, you detectives, they have to decide whether to absorb those costs or how much they might pass on to consumers. Are we hearing anything from companies? To what they're planning to do. Cisco for instance already face a ten percent tariffs since last year. And they said, okay, ten percent we can absorb that. But once they went up to twenty five percent last year. They said we had to raise prices for some of our equipment. We just can't absorb a twenty five percent increase. A lot of people can take ten, they can't do twenty five and companies can also try and avoid the tariffs by shuffling their supply chains to bypass China altogether. What are we hearing from tech companies about their ability to do that? Yeah. Love companies have said they've already taken steps to move production to their other factories outside China. Cisco's done at Ericsson which also makes cell phone tower equipment. They've done that too, but not every company can do that. And there's some logistics involved for instance, if you wanted to move production from China to Vietnam, maybe you already have a factory there. But do you have enough workers to work at that factory? It's not easy to snap your fingers and say, we'll just move it to another country. It's going to be difficult rate, and even if they could there's going to be cost associated with that there's going to be cost. And you might not be able to manufacture a product as quickly or as well, as you did the foreign China, St. we with the Wall Street Journal next week, President Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping will meet on the sidelines of the g twenty in Japan. Both countries are hoping to make progress after negotiations stalled last month. And now for some related links, US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer testified before Senate, and house committees this week and defended Trump's use of tariffs on Chinese goods, quote, if there's a better idea than tariffs. I'd like to hear it. He told the Senate finance committee, also fortune took a look at why analysts expect iphone production to largely remain in China, despite an offer from Foxconn which assembles the phones to move production to its facilities outside China.

The question is not whether the Fed will cut rates but why
"The marketplace word of the day today is expectations expectations used in a sentence. It might sound like this, the Federal Reserve yesterday acted in accordance with expectations and signaled its willingness to cut interest rates the Fed's turned, although not unexpected was a big one from where the central Bank was just six months ago you might remember when it was raising rates. No, we're not talking about a huge cut here. Maybe a quarter of a percentage point. But as marketplace's Tracey Samuelson reports when you are trying to game out what a rate cut is gonna mean in this economy, it is all about expectations. Let's say the fed does shave a quarter of a percent off interest rates at its next meeting. Well, the biggest impact typically on lower rates would be on kind of interest sensitive sectors of the. Enemy housing autos. For example, thing is Tony Rodriguez. Head of fixed income strategy. For new Wien says that the market is already expecting lower rates from the fed, so some rates consumers and businesses pay already reflect that that positive impact is already in the market. So, you know, mortgage rates have come down. Financing rates have come down for you. Know durable equipment, autos, etc. So that cut on its own wouldn't make a huge difference for the economy. What makes a big difference for the economy is does that change expectations about where rates are going into Holland horse? Chief economist for Citi group says, if the fed is cutting rates in the relative near-term, the question is they cut more over the next few months, or next few years in cutting rates, the fed would be sending markets. And I got your back kind of a message that is ready to act if say the trade war starts really slowing economic growth, Carl Tannenbaum is chief economist at Northern Trust, but it's making the statement that the central Bank stands ready to support. Port the continuation of the expansion, and that symbolic message may actually be more powerful than the short room symbolism might be more powerful economically than the cut itself.

But how do they actually work from American public media? This is marketplace tech. I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. Here's how force tech transfer doesn't typically work usually, there's no explicit requests from a Chinese official handover this trade secret or else you cannot right here. Instead, it's murkier perhaps a verbal request for sensitive information behind closed doors as part of the government's licensing or approvals process. It's tough to say how prevalent the practice is says Naomi Wilson, she's director of policy focusing on Asia at the information technology industry council, a tech trade group. She talked about the most common ways foreign firms are pressured to part with their IP. We see a couple of most prominent ones in the cybersecurity reviewers James that the Chinese government has established which are very ambiguous, so companies are often, not entirely sure of what compliance means and they may be getting different direction, depending on. On the enforcement arm of the Chinese government that contacts them the other area where we see this is in forced partnerships with Chinese companies. So in the cloud services market, in particular, foreign companies cannot obtain licenses to operate on their own. It's the Chinese partner that obtains the license and that runs the operation under their own brand name for the US or foreign company. And so the idea is when you're required to work with a Chinese partner you're required to share how your business works with that local firm. Right. So think of it this way, essentially the force partnerships give a Chinese company, the inside track onto how the best cloud services providers in the world operate their businesses. So it's sort of like a master class in the business of cloud services. But it's. Not necessarily like here's some valuable piece of code that makes our business run. Right. They're basically learning from the experts at a much faster pace than they would be able to develop this type of business model on their own the close coordination between the foreign cloud service provider and the Chinese partner also does lend itself to circumstances where individuals may be privy to information such as intellectual property that they might not otherwise be. But I also think it's fair to say that companies take very specific and concrete measures to safeguard their intellectual property, which, of course, is the lifeblood of their business, and it seems like when companies do the math calculating maybe the cost of force tech transfer verses the opportunity that they have to operate in China. They. Often move forward with their Chinese operation. Right. And it's interesting that you bring up the cost and the potential cost of operating in China. And the potential negative cost say think companies more and more have to factor in the cost of dealing with US policies, as well as Chinese policies in the current climate. The China is an exceptionally influential and large market. And so pulling out of China completely for many companies is just not an option because it would put them at such a competitive disadvantage. Not only in China but globally. If you're not in China, you're not a recognized name brand in China than, really, what are the prospects for success in the rest of Asia Naomi Wilson with the information technology industry. Council. The Chinese government has long denied for technology transfers are problem, but this spring, it passed a foreign investment law that says foreign firms shouldn't be forced to transfer their tech to Chinese companies. It was seen as an effort to appease the US, but there are also concerns about how it will be enforced. And now for some related links. The US trade Representative did a big investigation into four second transfers in China last year. You can read their two hundred page report for a lot more information on how this happens. Also, Bloomberg put together a helpful Q and A on tech transfers a few days ago. It includes a roundup of some high profile court cases where companies have alleged. They were made to share their secrets. I'm Tracey Samuelson. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

Facebook's crypto dream
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management. Learn more at ultimate software dot com. Ultimate software people. First. Baseba goes crypto, because why actually from American public media, this is marketplace tech? I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. Facebook is planning to launch a cryptocurrency in twenty twenty it's called libra and Facebook already has a bunch of high profile partners, lined up. Uber Spotify and notably. Big players in the payment space, like visa, MasterCard and PayPal. The partners will jointly manage the currency through a nonprofit association and Facebook says they'll be a firewall of sorts between users finances, and the social network. It won't use financial data to improve ad targeting on Facebook. So why create a digital wallet and why do it with a crypto currency? We say L S covers payments and crypto currency at the research firm Moffitt. Nathan said she says Facebook wants to be a commerce pot form. They have a major goal to start facilitating commerce over their platforms as a whole do revenue stream for them beyond the social media revenue, streams and payments are essential to facilitate in commerce. So like eighty five percent of. Facebook users when you look across all their properties, including WhatsApp, and Instagram and Facebook are actually in developing markets. So as a means for empowering their WhatsApp users that are sitting in all these countries where those what's up users have a phone and have a Wes up account, but may not have a Bank account, or even if they do they may limit their use of the local currency because of its volatility. They're trying to empower that group of individuals talk to me about the trust factor. Right. Because that's been a huge issue around Facebook. And now we're introducing a wallet into that scenario. Yeah. It's perhaps one of the most challenging things. Let me put it that way that this initiative will have to work through is the process of distancing itself from Facebook. So they're quarterbacking the creation of libra, but it's, you know, once it's up and running in twenty twenty they will be one of one hundred or so roughly. Members of the association with in theory. No more control over the system than any of the other core. Constituents even their wallet. Which is, you know, being called ca- libra. They're setting up as a separate subsidiary from Facebook specifically, so that it can meet all of the regulatory compliance and kind of maintain the data separation, let it go wrong. What should we be worried about well payments are extremely messy and a highly regulated and very different in every jurisdiction? And so most countries haven't even decided how they wanna treat crypto currencies. Are they a commodity like gold? Are they a currency like dollars? Are they a security like stock in a company like it's actually treated in all three of those ways in different places? So given that not only will libra have to navigate two hundred plus countries different treatments, most of. The countries don't even have the treatment established. Lisa LS covers payments and crypto currencies at the research, firm Moffat Nathanson that big open question of regulation, Ella says, how receptive countries are to Facebook's currency will likely have a big impact on where out the currency and win. It could take a phased approach. And now for some related links. If you really want to nerd out on this, you can check out Facebook's, white paper for more on the mechanics of how libra will work how it will be backed by a reserve of real assets. And the association that will govern it and for something maybe lighter, remember, the winkle Vaas twins Tyler and Cameron sued. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, claiming he stole their idea and settled for sixty five million dollars. The twins have been big crypto investors and said on CBS Sunday morning last weekend that they need to be frenemies with Facebook in may the financial times reported that suck and the winkle vi- have actually talked about the new currency.

ADP: Job creation drops to 9-year low in May
"Arguably the three most relevant letters in this economy. Today are a D N P ADP. That's a company does payroll processing among many other things. It is also, we should tell you an underwriter of this program, but one of the things that does with all that payroll data, it has put out a monthly report on private sector employment. How much of it there is in this morning? We learned that last month, there was less of it than we thought there would be just twenty seven thousand new jobs, last month, a giant drop from the two hundred and seventy five thousand jobs. ADP says we added in April. Now one data point does not panic warrant so bear that in mind. But one big reason for the weakness was small businesses companies with less than nineteen employees. So a drop in employment. So what is going on with the little guys? Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson gets. Is going Nick given our open the sandwich king in Long Island city, queens, this past January sandwiches. Yes, plus some hot foods and catering. He has about five employee's. And he take another one or two, if he could find them hard for good workers at a way, that is fair for both people. He starts new employees around fourteen or fifteen dollars an hour. It's hard to compete with somebody that's offering nineteen dollars if you're just a deli, you know what I mean. How do you put that into your payroll? How'd you fit that into your budget symbolical in a tight labor market, where companies have to increasingly fight for workers, small businesses are losing the battle, Mark Zandi the chief economist at Moody's analytics, which puts together, these payroll reports for ADP small businesses, or distinct disadvantage, relative to the big guys. Because the big guys have lots of resources, they can raise wages. They can provide other benefits and attract workers, small companies just don't have the ability to keep up and they're not this smaller the small business. The harder. The hiring companies with more than twenty employees are out competing those with fewer says Jim Diffley, he's with IHS market, which also track small business hiring. Matters here, intense track workers and influence of this tight labor market is having says, in addition to higher wages and better benefits workers may also prefer the stability of bigger companies in New York.

"Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson reports app developers want slash neat to have their products in the apple app store because that's where Apple's customers have to download apps. John Butler is a telecom analyst at Bloomberg intelligence. The small guy actually has a shot. Thanks to the apple app store 'cause they get on a platform where there. There are a lot of eyeball, and they get distribution that they otherwise wouldn't be able to generate on their own. But apple takes a cut thirty percent for one off purchases and for the first year of subscriptions. It's actually pretty common business model says every gardener at the center for democracy and technology think of a grocery store where our food manufacturers pay slotting fees to get their products on the shelf and where they pay for the right to promote their product in the produce section. The issue here is whether that fee is unfairly high Spotify thinks it is and has asked European regulators to look into it net. Netflix doesn't allow users to purchase subscriptions through the app store anymore. They have to go to its website. And that could be a problem for apple and Google, which charges a similar commission for its app store. People don't realize how big outdoors have become an important. They are for profitability. Then Schachter an internet analyst at MacQuarie says apple would take a big hit. If it had to cut its commission say by half. Could impact their overall profit but somewhere between seven and fifteen percent for one of the world's largest companies at quite a lot of money. But he thinks that's exactly what might happen that both apple and Google will eventually have to cut their fees. I'm Tracey Samuelson for marketplace. On Wall Street. Yeah, I already gave it away.

The Exim Bank Could Gain Strength This Week
"American trade policy. There is news of the US export economy. The Export Import Bank which helps finance the sale of made in America products. Overseas hasn't been at full strength since two thousand fourteen but as marketplace's Tracey Samuelson reports that might change this week for. Two years. The EximBank has been the subject of debate. Is it a valuable tool to help us companies sell abroad, or does it mainly benefit big multinationals that don't really need it support? The White House is in the valuable tool camp says Gary Heff Bauer with the Peterson institute. Who is quite focused on increasing US exports and historically the EximBank has fostered. US exports. Bet since the Bank can't prove financing over ten million dollars. It's just doing a lot less than it used to. Bankers operating a level. It hasn't seen maybe forty or fifty years. Fred Hochberg is a former president and chairman of Export Import Bank in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen he was its sole board member he says during the Obama years the Bank financed roughly fifteen to twenty billion a year last year about three and a half billion dollars in Financing's. The Bank may soon be back to full muster. Thanks in part to recently changed rules in how the Senate confirms presidential nominees, but the banks near-disappearance has given its critics new ammunition. Very Nikkei J at George Mason's Mercatus center says despite its reduced capacity. We've found is basically the impact on export was absolutely. They was non as we expected an issue that sir to come up when the banks chartered needs to be renewed. Again, this fall.
U.S. Worker Productivity Advances at Best Rate Since 2010
"We had best begins today. I think with the definition worker productivity is the metric of the day and in very basic terms. It is the number of widgets produced per hour worked. I mentioned it because we learned this morning in the first quarter of the year productivity rose at the fastest pace since two thousand fourteen inserts caveat here about quarterly numbers bouncing around a lot. But generally speaking, we are seeing increased productivity now that is weird because more productivity usually leads to higher wages, which really isn't happening at the Richard think, and sometimes it can lead to inflation, which is definitely not happening. So what gives marketplace's Tracey Samuelson hopped into a metaphorical boat to explain. Picture crew team. Two. One jumping eight rowers workers and a manager the Cox in on each trip. Aparna matter is an economist at the American Enterprise Institute, she says if you want the boat to go faster, the owner could maybe get those rowers some better ores or faster boat. It's the same number of people in abode, but having access to tools just makes the board go that much faster, or maybe the owner could figure out some way to improve results ro faster without a big investment. Dean Baker is at the center for economic and policy research and tight labor market. Employers have incentive to try to Condomi's on labor. They have an incentive to figure out the reorganized their workplace to be more efficient Baker says if companies can produce more with the same workers, they don't have to compete to hire new workers in a tight labor market, which often means paying more and those companies can absorb the modest wage increases. We have been seeing without raising prices, which may help explain why inflation is so low can Kutner is an economist at Williams College. We tend to even flation as. Happening when people are trying to buy more stuff than is being produced. If you get a raise, and you have extra money to spend that increased demand for goods can push prices up. But if you want to buy more stuff at the same time that the economy is making more stuff, they think it's the balance between those two that is preventing inflation from rising, but if wage gains started to really outpaced productivity growth, that's when you start to worry more about inflation.
Where is China's economy recovery coming from?
"To possibly slash probably inter related items with which to begin on this Wednesday item. The first we learned this morning that the Chinese economy grew six point four percent in the first quarter. That's from your earlier and for those not keeping score at home that is more growth than a whole lot of people expected item. Number two from the Wall Street Journal. There is talk that there might be some kind of U S China trade deal signing ceremony come late may or early June, which gets us to the synthesis part of this program. How does news item one a recovering Chinese economy fit into news item to Chinese trade talks? Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson gets us going. The question is whereas China's economic recovery coming from and the answer is mostly it's government. Nee concentrate is a researcher at the rhodium group. The biggest economic policy story for China over the past three years has been this deleveraging effort that the government pursued to reduce debt. China had been trying to tamp down on lending to boost its financial stability, but as growth slowed last year its priorities shifted to boost growth, it's now encouraging lending particularly to Chinese corporate. What was previously a stifling effect has now become a driver of growth again corporate barring has shot up to a six year high according to data from the China beige book, which tracks the country's economy by surveying thousands of Chinese companies Shahzad khazei is its managing director. This is almost entirely a credit driven or credit soak recovery. What you see is that anybody who wanted to loan in Q one got one. And that is really what has propelled this Q one recovery. The Trump administration had previously argued that China's weakening economy would motivate Beijing to close a trade deal. So the question now is whether that leverage goes away with its current economic rebound doesn't think so he says China's still wants. An agreement Issoire produce trade policy, professor at Cornell agrees, the US has some leverage over China because China clearly wants to deal, but preside cautions US doesn't have a huge vantage in these negotiations. Either the White House also wants to deal US financial markets also seemed to have been boosted by the prospects of a U S China trade deal. So I think it could have a negative effect on both financial markets and economic activity in both countries if a deal is not struck precise. The question continues to be what that deal look like and how comprehensive it might be.

I mean, the brand alone brought in eight billion dollars last year. That's nearly half of gap Inc. Overall sales. He's been really good at competing in this era of cheap fashion. The brands price points are low. It's been able to bring in customers and keep them. But the gasping struggling I spoke with Barbara Kahn who teaches marketing at the university of Pennsylvania. She says this may have been unintentional, but the gap and old navy had been stepping on each other. The problem was if it's very hard to discriminate between gas. A lot of the clothing Henry. But I'll baby was at a cheaper price point. So old navy is going to become its own company and the gap will become part of a new company, which will include banana Republic and athletic. Okay. But with old navy being in a position of say relative strength right now when that be an argument for gap to keep it. Yes. But it says the split is about giving both brands the flexibility. They need gap Inc.

I I need to talk to them about this. And then, you know, have a conversation realized that they were way ahead of me. And you know, who ready quite sophisticated levels of understanding about things. So yeah, it has been interesting watching the generation, and you know, what Shing them try to make sense again of the different landscape. They're growing up him because much as they've learned things from the internet. They've also had to grow up, you know, working that way through that.

"That sister from Tracey Thorn's new album record. Tracey thorn, welcome to fresh air. It's really a pleasure to have you on the show. So thank you. What's the story behind the song? We just heard. Well, I wrote sit ofter I went on the women's March in London the same day that those much is happening around the world and the one in London was huge. And I went off that day. You know, like a lot of people feeling a mixture of frustration desperation thinking, you know, why we still have to protest the same stuff. But I found that day it self Grady, inspiring, and you know, it made me feel very positive seeing that number of people out on the streets protesting and clearly Indiana agree about the same stuff. And I saw a couple of people carrying a banner with the slogan fight like a gun on. And I thought well, you know, that's that's a good lyric right there. So that's my starting point. And what does the line? I am my mother now mean to you. I think his to do with that feeling of you know, that that boomed that sisterhood between, you know, women who you're literally related to and other women who you just feel that sort of theoretical sisterhood with I think as I get older, I feel more more that sense of turn into my mother absorbing some of her spirit she's gone now. So it's partly me conjuring up her memory, I suppose, an and feeding myself becoming ever closer to and you've you've become the mother. I mean, your children are grown now. Yeah. I am. So you know, I've stepped into those shoes. So in in your memoir from two thousand seven bits disco Queen it opens with a story where like your with your husband, and and music partner in the band, everything. But the girl, and you get a call saying that you to once you tour with them to open for them. And you don't immediately say, yes, or no, you think about it. And then at the end of the book, we find out that your answer to that is I think I wanna stop now he's kind of stopped performing then unless than a year later, you give birth to twins, and you decide to become a full time mother. Why did you make choice? Lots of reasons really we tried touring for little while taking the Gulf with us, and that was very difficult.
