"I nearly covered a story recently where a woman had to be duct tape to her chair because she kept trying to open the door and exit the plane lady. You can't open the door we're flying and they duck taped her to a chair. You need training for this sort of thing so flight attendants or stepping up the game. It looks like in miami alone. The transportation security administration plans to train hundreds of flight attendants this summer and fall and self defense skills. They're restarting the half day. Course that i developed in two thousand and four but that was recently put on hold. Due to the pandemic the skills include how to strike stomp and subdue violent attacker. My favorite verb. And there's stomp we're going to teach you how to stop an unruly passenger. Yes our self defense class includes how to choke out a karen great teaching them basically how to subdue a violent attacker a scenario that these flight attendants say that they hope they never have to encounter amid the return to air travel this year the number of unruly and violent passengers is increasing more than one hundred incidents were reported to the federal aviation administration in the last week alone for a total of more than three thousand six hundred incidents so far this year that is a ton of violent passengers. Now these flight attendants are taught a very specific set of de escalation techniques to handle difficult passengers. Such as sleep these passengers might act up over a a tray table or something to do with their suitcase. That won't fit in the ben and of course there's always the masking regulations. The customers do not like to wear masks on planes and that has led to some stories that i've come across. They say the defiance violence that accompanies. This return to travel is testing. All of these skills. Instructors taught a range of skills from a defensive stance to blows that can be delivered on a would be hijacker. Desperate to commandeer the plane. Ooh they're learning how to take down. A hijacker as well or a terrorist is fascinating. One particular instructor likes to use a mannequin to demonstrate a last resort method of going at an attacker's is. Here's a quote from the instructor. You're going to possibly die on this plane. You need to defend yourself at all. Costs take out. The is teaching them how to just about someone's eyeballs these flight attendants or they're getting tough men much you just give them tasers and bear mace when he can't actually spray bear maize on a plane because that would affect all of us but i think tasers are a good thing to have. Just keep it right under their little hat as a or to. It says here. Most encounters on planes with unruly passengers never rise to the extra level but the federal aviation administration summaries of more than forty onboard incidents in recent months show the brazen descended flight attendants tasked with addressing in one instance. The faa claim that a passenger quote tried to open the cockpit door repeatedly refused to comply with crew members instructions and physically assaulted a flight attendant by striking him in the face and pushing him to the floor. After crew crew members restrain the passenger in plastic handcuffs he freed himself from one of the cuffs and struck the flight attendant in the face a second time and about three quarters of the incidents reported involve passengers violating or repeatedly define the federal requirement to wear a mask when on board a plane. Another common theme is alcohol so much so that many airlines have withheld alcohol service on particular flights. These flight attendants are finding jobs harder than ever and more dangerous than they ever anticipated. Conflicts arising very quickly these days. Everybody's tents so. The training is absolutely necessary hobby. Lobby's one point. Six million dollar epic of gilgamesh tablet has been forfeited. Why does the hobby lobby heaven. Epic of gilgamesh tablet very curious where they would buy. This is an undisputed and their stores are they. Are they selling it. What is how did they get.

Finally, Airlines are Dropping Change Fees
"Wars daily on this September fourth. Happy Friday friends and happy. Labor. Day. Weekend. Labor, day, marks the end of summer for many of us an occasion for one last Hurrah barbecues pool parties in one last long weekend vacation perhaps this year well, most of us are staying home and the airlines have absolutely nothing to celebrate. Passenger levels are down seventy percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration looking financial disaster in the face, the airlines are trying to woo travelers back given the safety concerns that's proving difficult. So on Monday, United Airline CEO Scott Kirby took a startling and many would say welcome step here he is in a video announcement. Permanently getting rid of change vs on standard economy and premium tickets for travel within the US. Changes inevitable these days, but it's how we respond to change. That matters most. We hear from customers about where we can improve getting rid of this feat is often offered West and for good reason until now it could set you back two hundred to five hundred dollars to change a flight on one of the Big Three Airlines, United Delta or American sometimes that fee was more than the cost the original ticket simply the existence of that fee put all three airlines at a competitive disadvantage. To Southwest Airlines, which proudly boasts that it has never charge change fees or baggage fees, either which is another story well, now, non of the other airlines will either at least for domestic flights about twenty four hours after Kirby went public. American Airlines and Delta followed suit and canceled their domestic change fees as the Wall Street reports American went even further canceling their change fees for international flights to Canada Mexico, and the. Caribbean. Now, the question is, what will it cost them? US carriers earned close to three billion dollars from changing cancellation fees in two thousand, nineteen according to the US Transportation Department. All three major airlines in hefty amounts of money. American was I with more than eight, hundred, million dollars coming from vs Delta was close behind united took in more than six hundred, million dollars one might imagine that it could be hard for.

"transportation security administration" Discussed on WJR 760
"To you by the institute of public policy and social research, Michigan State University and the good, folks. WKNO studios. I'm Arnold wine. Feld interim director for the institute and joined as always by our economist. Dr Charlie Ballard who directs our state of the state survey. Let's dive into some of the topics of the day, Charlie. The federal government shutdown has just ended. And I'm wondering if we are aware or know how the shutdown impacted Michigan in particular. Good news. Is that the shutdown didn't hurt Michigan as much as it hurts? The Washington DC Maryland northern Virginia area, but still we've got several thousand federal employees here in Michigan. Longer lines at airports because of Transportation Security Administration. Folks, calling in sick we've had some federal grants involving some of our universities where part of the grant application process had to be delayed because of this. So. We didn't hit take as much of a bullet is as DC, but still I think it was a a substantial substantial effect, and if there's any good news in this. At least it's over at least for now. And what about hits to the economy in general? Across the country. I know I know it seems as if the. Debacle over air travel. Finally was the tipping point in getting something done. Was there any ripple effects were throughout the economy? Certainly it seemed as if Wall Street was continuing to do it. It's it's roller coaster ride. And really I can't say where I saw that it respond to the other negatively or positively dinner shutdown will it is hard to distinguish since financial markets. Have been pretty volatile really for the last year. Going back quite a ways hard to distinguish how much of an effect that partial government shutdown may have had. But. I think for the longer term it has to be damaging because businesses alike certainty, they like predictability, and now we've shown a federal government that seems really dysfunctional. I mean in recent decades, of course, it's often seemed dysfunctional. But this one was dysfunctional exclamation point. And I think that private markets equity markets that kind of stuff drives them crazy because they just don't know whether they're going to be able to count on a stable policy environment. Now since the last time, we were on new governor has taken off his governor Whitmer, she's made many of her department appointments, and she has a stateless state address coming up, and, but you know, one of the issues that governor Whitmer talked about. During the campaign was education. Yes. And we had a report come out last week which from Michigan State University that showed that Michigan ranks actually after an adjusted for inflation. We actually rank fiftieth in funding for education among the fifty states, and you can't actually get any lower than fiftieth among fifty that's and we see that in education we ours. Our students continue to rank typically in the sort of mid thirties in terms of various measures of educational attainment. We see it with the crumbling infrastructure. We have had in Michigan really for the last several decades an obsession with lower taxes. And I don't think it's too strong to call it an obsession. And I think we we see the results. The results are predictable. We have crumbling infrastructure. We have skyrocketing tuition at universities because as the funding for higher Ed has been cut the colleges have to find some way to pay their bills. We have k through twelve education funding down twenty percent. According to the report by professor, David arson and others. It's not a it's not what I think is a pretty picture, although the the politics of of turning that around and finding enough revenue to do more things it is very difficult rates. And so there's a lot on the governor's played as she approaches that state of the state address education promised to fix the roads, even though just two years ago. The legislature supposedly came up with some methods to do that one of which will impact her budget in the next couple of years by moving six hundred million dollars from the general fund over to roads and taking money away from programs such as education k twelve education, higher education, cities and other important services. So she's got a lot on the on the plate. She made a lot of promises. I think it's going to be very interesting to see exactly what her plans are for funding K twelve education for funding higher education and for fixing the damn roads. Very interesting. Indeed. It's it's a it's a challenge, especially since she still has we we have now divided government Republicans retained control of both houses of the legislature. Although their margins of control are smaller than they than they were before. Hopeful scenario is that there's enough pragmatic folks on both sides of the aisle to get some things done. But I don't think it's going to be easy. No, I don't think it's going to be easy at all. And again with a lot of those issues that are now on her plate. How would you seeing in terms of the economy moving forward are we gonna see slower growth is growth going to be about the same? Because all of that certainly going to have an impact on on the state general fund, which is know again ingested for inflation is about the same as it was forty years ago. So we're trying to fund all of these problems that have continued to grow with about the same bucket of money. We we had about forty years ago. What are you seeing in terms of the next six to twelve or even eighteen months in terms of economic growth? Well, of course, predicting the macro economy is really really a challenge. But there's more talk of it's unquestionable that there's more talk of the possibility of a recession than there was a year or two ago. I've heard some forecasters say that they think it's possible that we could have a recession in twenty nineteen. On the plus side, if we get through to the middle of the summer, this will be the longest economic expansion in American economic history, which is good news. But that history also should give us a warning sign because there are reasons why every previous economic expansion has eventually come to an end. And some of the warning signs are apparent now surging corporate debt volatile financial markets. And then of course, there's the international factors that could adversely affect us, especially Brexit. The slowdown of the Chinese economy. I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll get through twenty nineteen without a recession. Maybe it'll go on for several more years, but that would be a historical. We've never seen anything longer than ten years. If we get to twelve that would be really really amazing. And so we don't know exactly when the next recession will will happen. We do know almost sure that it will happen sooner or later, and when it happens that will create budgetary challenges. And that's why I think it's it's very disappointing that we haven't done more during the expansion of the last decade to fix the roads to repair some of these problems that you, and I were talking about why we've had the money while we've technically had the money. John F Kennedy said the time to fix your roof is when the sun is shining. Correct. So let me ask you just for our listeners a little bit of a clarification here because I always have a little confusion. On this is Muslim other things in my own mind about. Slower growth and recession slower growth is a is a whole lot better than a recession. A recession is an actual downturn. Where things are shrinking and there's a group of economists to meet regularly at the national bureau of economic research, a private think tank, and they look over all sorts of economic indicators. It's not just any one thing. It's employment. It's output and so on and they're the ones who make the call about when we're in a recession recession means actually a contraction a shrinking of the economy, slow growth won't slow growth is what we've had in this expansion, but slow growth is, you know, third year or second year is way better than I it's not as good as fourth year. But and fourth years what we had in the nineties. So we are now approaching a an economic expansion of the same length that we've had now versus the one of the nineties, but growth is only been about half as fast and so. So what might some of those markets be to signal downturn? Would it be for instance, a reduction from one year to the next in auto sales? Well, certainly auto sales are are something that have an effect and especially important effect for Michigan. And we have seen that on sales have been flat and are predicted to continue to be a flat. So that's a sector that's already stopped growing. We are only in an economic expansion now because other things have continued to grow. If the entire economy world, like the auto sector, I think we would be in recession now. Okay. Thank you, Charlie is always your join us against next month on state of the state one will have again, some folks from campus talking about their research and work on issues involving line five the continuing controversy on piping oil and gas under the straits of mackinac again.

Data Shows Air Travel Safety Not Compromised During Shutdown
"Government data shows air travel remain safe during the partial government shutdown although resources or becoming more strained joining me now via Skype from Chicago is Wall Street Journal reporter, Alison cider Allison. Tell us about this data you found that it does support. The president's statements that air traffic control remain safe, despite the partial government shutdown. Yes, what we found is a data shows that serious traffic control deviations. That's when planes are coming in dangerously close to one another in the air on the ground. You haven't really changed from year ago? Even though the government has been shut down for about a month now and air traffic controllers are working without pay. We also found that through actually a four percent drop over sort of a broad range of air, traffic, control, deviate, and that voluntary reports from pilots and controllers of safety incidents are actually down fourteen percents from a year ago. So I think that is somewhat reassuring to people who are concerned that airtrav. Might be less safe right now because so many people working aviation industry are federal workers who are working during the government shutdown that are not being paid. Right. And as you say, our traffic controllers have been coming to work without getting paid. But that is also raising concerns about whether they're feeling overworked or financially strained. What are you hearing from advocates? Yes, what we're hearing from controller set the stress levels have become quite alarming in these people haven't been paid. They're about to miss their second paycheck for a lot of people. That's a real financial strain. The job is already quite stressful. And now some of them are talking about having to take second jobs. We saw some survey data that their union conducted that indicated, you know, as many as fifty people respond to their surveys that they were taking on outside work. Some of those are even fulltime jobs. So in air, traffic controller might be working at Starbucks or driving for Uber, and then showing up in the evening to do their actual job. Which job that requires a lot of intense focus, so it's concerning to the union that people are are having to take on outside. Work. We're also hearing from the union on some this data were seeing on on air safety, and they've questioned the validity of some of the results on voluntary incident reporting saying that you know, the system is just not really functioning. So the pilots and air traffic controllers who would make a report after safety incidents aren't able to do it. So, you know, they've questioned kind of weather that metric what that really shows during a government shutdown, and they've said sort of everyday that the town continues the system as a whole becomes less safe. And what about new hiring? That's something. That's also been stalled amid the shutdown. Ryan, I'm yes, there's an air traffic control Kadhamy, and it's been closed during the shutdown. So people who've recently been higher need to go through training. You know, they're kind of in limbo right now being told just to sit tight in. It's really not clear Reto for some of them. How long they'll be able to do that just not to have any income coming in to be able to really start their work, and that's a huge concern to their traffic controllers almost twenty percents of their existing is retirement eligible. So they really need constant pipeline of new. Controller's coming in. And if there's a big gap it could become a huge problem, especially since they're starting to see uptick in in resignations retirements people just saying I need a job where I get paid. It's people talking about leaving. So there's really facing what they say is a potential staffing crisis to the longer strikes out through the more concern that they're becoming about the system overall. And Allison what about those other shortages at the Transportation Security Administration. That's also been a concern here when it comes to airport in airline security. Yeah. There are a lot of federal workers that are volved it kind of all points in air travel, including people who work the checkpoints, and who scan bags at airports, the transportation security ministration, they are also considered essential. So they're still working, but they're not being paid. So what we seen is sort of a growing number of TSA. Edens the calling inside just can't come in today as he says they're hearing from their poise that they're facing financial imitation. That make it hard for them to come into work.
