If you look at the market cap for Apple, still trading around $2 trillion, so it's still right below that three level there. Tim Cook sold some stock. Yes, and so there you go. And obviously that's going to be a bellwether there that we're going to be watching today after today's selloff there, as well as other stocks in the tech and growth space there. PLTR shares gaining about 4 % ahead of the opening bell, so this is a data analysis firm and it has emerged as a top pick for a contract to overhaul the U .K.'s National Health Service.

Here's what's next! Now I should ask Ken Felio about this because during the big thing. It was, especially earlier this year. That was such a hot topic. We had the bird flu and what yes what came first the chicken or the egg I think we kind of know that. But if you do look at Stevens analysts they did trim the price target on that stock $45 to had previously been $47 and they are maintaining an equal weight rating on that stock and then lastly a point out Stevens is such a good Stevens is a regional investment bank I think in Arkansas really really good at what they do they really focus on a handful of industries that are kind of you know in their geographic right like I always remember them doing good stuff on trucking That kind of thing and agricultural and farmers, you know, it's just really it's a great little firm down there and then Moderna ticker symbol MRNA this was a stock we were talking about earlier this week shares up nearly 1 % pre market didn't didn't say it would begin a final stage trial of a combination of influenza and COVID vaccines later this year.

"Class of O 9 now streaming only on Hulu. You were listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast. And we're back then, the squirrel. Which is not a cockroach. Is up next. I didn't know that word was taboo, you know what I mean? Jim, what he says, can I say the CR word? I'm thinking, let's see. I mean, I'm thinking myself, what's putting all these words together because I thought I knew them all. And when you say cockroach on point, man, I didn't know that was a fan word. I mean, we use that word fairly regular hope to show. Unfortunately, but no, I thought Logan's call, if I hadn't described it in one word, it would be wine, probably. It was whining from the beginning. First Logan, get that windy tone out of your voice. If you go and come on here and say something stupid, like she did last week. Don't sit and backtrack. I mean, this dude was backtracking. I mean, we'll call it crawfish and say on either because we moved that. But I just thought it was kind of sad. I thought Kim had an appropriate response to him. And who works on all rigs? That's the way he's an LSU fan from Baton Rouge. Well, yeah, I've been here in his car. I've been joining next time in college in a I hope he tells us what he does out there. 'cause there's a million jobs. Well, I tell you what he does, Carl, he makes loan money, whatever that means. Log money, log money. Log money. Apparently. Long money. Longer. Okay, it took me three times to get the right word. Okay. I worked there out there 8 years in my 20s and from 21 to 29. Is it good money? Yeah, you might do some money out there, but if you're smart, you can make more money on land and sleep in your own bed every night. I found out. I don't think I don't think he's figured that out yet. He's only 56 or give him a break. It's kind of a deciding life out there, it's like a city out in the ocean, a hundred miles from shore, possibly and you've got people that cook for you. You got people that make your beds and all that while you're out working. I like that. There's a million jobs out there and that's what some people have it easy. Some people have it hard and I just wondered. What did you do on the rig? I worked for a contractor. So we had to bust our ass. We had to go out there to work on rigs that had been on the bottom of the ocean. We didn't work on drilling. We're floating around. We worked on rigs that possibly had been there since the 60s. It's 50. And then we would replace pipe. Did whatever we had to do. And yeah, that's what we did. We were after two weeks at a time and come home for a week. Every night was Saturday night. So when you were home. So that was the only good thing about it, plus I wasn't married, but once I settled down, I had to get away from offshore as quick as I could. And I went to work for one of our suppliers. But thanks for letting us share our offshore history. Thank you very much. Handsome is up next, Joe. I get good right here all right. I'm not going to.

"But at the end of the day, it's still gonna be a Thai Simpson or a jala. Because I think there's things to like about each one and what they can bring. And to me, Jalen Miller, I kept hearing, was kind of that edge throughout the spring. So if I'm leaning one way, it may be as Jalen Miller, but I think it really, there's a lot to play out. I don't know that they know who's going to be the starter. So a lot of a quarterback battle has to play out these practices in the scrimmages they have in the fall. And it might not be that we see just one quarterback in that first game. Honestly, if there's a prediction I have to make, it almost would be that we see more than one quarterback in that first game in the season opener. And then by Texas, we maybe have that starter. Kelly was this from the Tuscaloosa news. Nick, I don't know if this is a fair question or not, because but I am curious about something. We were at the golf tournament the other day. The region's tradition, Greg burn came by and we had a nice conversation with him. But NATO's was not there. He's been to everyone that I can remember. Nick Saban was not there. He's been to everyone. I can remember that. Any inkling to where those two were from a very prominent event that the media is always going to be at and report on what they say. Yeah, my understanding is some scheduling conflicts and just trying to figure out who was going to be there and who wasn't there. So I don't know that there is some deeper meaning to them not being there. Frankly, Nate Oates has been an incredibly busy man. This off season with just, he didn't have a staff, so he's having everybody, but he had committed. I mean, this wasn't like they couldn't grab him for a commitment. He was his name was on the list. He had committed and then did not show. Saban, I do understand, according to some people, I spoke with, did not commit to it, and I'm not making, I'm not being critical. One person told me, and I'm curious if you know the answer to this, that said that he was heading out of the country. Byrne said he was at the staff meeting a week ago Tuesday, this was Wednesday. Have you seen or heard from Nick Saban? Because I can't get any confirmation on whether he's simply around or according to one person. He was scheduled to go out of the country. that it was a scheduling conflict for Nick Saban. That's all I was told. But I can't completely speculate as to where he was or wasn't. But that was my understanding. As far as native. Recently? Have I seen in person? I'm trying to think the last, I mean, the last time I have, I think the last public appearance might have made was in maybe the baseball game. I guess I haven't thought about that Paul. The reason I bring this up is I interviewed Q three as I've talked to other coaches and they also talked about how busy the month of May is now. It's not like it used to be. And I'm still trying to wrap my arms around and by the way, Nick Saban, maybe right down the street from here right now and we can clear this up, but the fact that somebody said he thought he was out of the country caught me by surprise. The idea that the head football coach at Alabama would be out of the country in May was completely stunning. Yeah, I hadn't heard that, but I mean, it's possible. I mean, again, I'm not going to say it's wrong information. Like I said, all I know is he had a scheduling conflict and that's the extent of what was your main to put you on the witness stand here, but I'm going to, since you're the only person that I'm talking to right now, who said it was a scheduling conflict. His communication staff, so folks at Alabama. Okay, well, maybe they're the people to ask about where he is right now. I am curious. Nick, thank you. It's always great to talk to you, Nick Kelly from the Tuscaloosa news. On the offensive explosion, apparently coming from the university of Alabama. We'll be back. With much more, including a couple of guests that you will want to hear. From and we'll have all of that for you right after

"Somewhere during your commute or wherever you may be, but thank you and let's get right to some of the headlines making news in its tampering. It May of course, and this headline here for Bruce Feldman article has really created some controversy. It's inevitable and impossible to stop. In other words, cheat, but there really is very little risk. We'll talk to Bruce later in the program. The ACC meetings have arrived. In Florida and with it controversy, a lot of noise being made about uneven distribution, commissioner, please pick up your courtesy phone. We'd like to ask you a couple of questions. Over the weekend, Ian, Alabama, the Alabama sports Hall of Fame, where else would you expect this to be? Welcomed in a number of new members, Gerald Wallace, great basketball player there, Jackie Sheryl, legendary player and coach. And Roman Harper more on that a little bit later on. And also in the land of the tide. Who will the top offensive players be? That's a picture of a guy they're hoping is a big weapon at the wide receiver jacori Brooks. Kelly covers the team for the Tuscaloosa news, always great to say hello to Nick, it's been a while. Nick, thanks for the time. Great to have you with us. So give us what the perspective is right now on this incredibly important Alabama offense, one that most of the experts don't see right now heading to the playoffs coming just shy. Good afternoon. Ready to see you, Paul. Yeah, this album offense. There's a lot of question marks, but I genuinely think the weapons around whoever's going to be a quarterback is going to be better than what Bryce young had a year ago. I mean, that's the thing Bryce was that offense in a lot of ways. You had to hedge your Gibbs as well. But they're just weren't a lot of guys who want to consistent basis. We're really scaring defenses. I think there are a few candidates on this team and it's going to be how they kind of come together because they are question marks, but at the same time, some guys that I think a lot of people in the program around Tuscaloosa are excited about at receiver at running back who can help out whoever ends up being that signal caller. Let's talk about some of the receivers and the running backs. If you were pretty well known names, obviously mcclellan, we've heard of him. Haines is Holly regarded. Those are the two running backs of receivers. You alluded to. Let's start with the running back position. Certainly last year, we talked about a first rounder after transferring over from Georgia Tech. He's now gone, but what do you see, especially at running back? Yeah, you talked about justice Haynes. He's a guy who was probably the worst kept secret throughout the spring. And then the spring game he had three touchdowns. So he's a guy who should get a lot of playing time early and often a guy that I know people inside the program are excited about. I think anyone who is around this part of the country's interested to see, especially with him being a Georgia legacy guy, sort of interesting storyline there. But yeah, Jason mcclellan is another guy as well that don't forget about him. I mean, he had the 81 yard touchdown against Texas last year. So he's got some speed. I got some size as well, so some good options that are running back. And just really, they got jam Miller too, a guy who people have been excited about in the past year or so as well, even though he was only getting time in late in games when they were kind of doing that cleanup duty. So running back a lot of guys there, frankly, I don't know how they're going to split the reps, necessarily got rid of Williams as well. They bring in another guy Richard young as a freshman. So really just jam packed backfield they have, and that receiver, I mean, you've got guys like Malik Benson. I had one person to say he's going to be the next electric receiver for that team. A team that's produced a lot of great receivers in the NFL. In recent years, so watch Malik Benson, but Jakob Brooks. He was the iron bowl heroes of freshmen, had some good moments last year, but I think he's looking to take that next step to be a guy who defenses have to really guard against and have potential issues with and have defensive coordinators kept up at night. He's not quite at that level yet. But I think he would the size he has speedy has. There's a lot to like. And so there's a lot of they could be this. We'll see if they end up getting there. That's why I play the game. You got the killer bees, Benson, Bond, and Brooks receivers. It sounds like a law firm. You add Buckner to that. Let's move over to quarterback. You knew we were going there. So give us what that rather crowded for now, a quarterback room looks like and who's the likely starter. Yeah, you can't talk about this team right now without talking about the quarterbacks. So you didn't catch me by surprise, Paul, but yeah, I think to me it's interesting because I think there's a genuine competition right now because if there really wasn't, I think we would have seen Dale Miller or type Simpson leave. I mean, there's no indication I think to them that this is not a genuine competition. I think it is open. Yeah, you brought a guy like Buckner who has Nick Saban said in late April, they gave these guys a chance to win the job. They decided they wanted more competition. You bring in Buckner a guy who knows Tommy Reese.

And that something is a weapon. According to court testimony, either Davis or miles tells the other the heat is in the hat. And then the question comes, is there one in the head? Meaning is the gun loaded and it is affirmed that it is loaded. It is not clear who said what to one another from court testimony.

Michael Ross then you've been on the ground in Tuscaloosa and you know reporters talk all the time about a TikTok trying to get the details of what happened in a particular place at a particular time. And piece by piece, you're reporting group has done it. You've put it together. So where does it begin on that night in Alabama? Sim begins a couple of places for the Alabama basketball players that are involved. It starts at Coleman coliseum with their typical pregame warmup. They play, and they throttle LSU. It's a bucket towards the end to make it a 40 point margin. Largest margin of victory for Alabama and their SEC history. For jamia Harris, it starts in Birmingham, where she lives. She had had a really tough day. A friend of hers had died. She had gone to that funeral. She wanted to just have a night out. So she said, okay, I'm going to go to Tuscaloosa, her cousin, Asia Humphrey, is a student there. So her and her boyfriend, as we mentioned, Cedric Johnson decide to go down to Tuscaloosa to hang out with Asia Humphrey and on the way down Jimmy Harris accidentally FaceTimes her mother to Carla Hurd. Carla heard is watching her 5 year old grandson who is Jimmy is son. His name is Kane. Kane comes over, he's dancing. He's having fun on the screen. They're laughing. Jamia yells as Kane's running away. I love you. And for to Karla, though it would have been the last time she talked with her daughter. So Jimmy is on her way from Birmingham to Tuscaloosa, her son is at home with her mother. Where is jamia headed? Where is she going? So she's going to a place called the strip. Just off of the university of Alabama's campus, picture it like this, Sam, you've been in college towns before. You know how sometimes there's a normal downtown, like a bigger city, like an adult people downtown and then a student downtown. Yes. College bar area. The strip in Tuscaloosa is very much the college downtown and obviously with that, there are bars, nightclubs and restaurants, and jamia Harris, Asia Humphrey and Cedric Johnson, were all heading to a place called 1225, which is a bar restaurant sports bar on the strip, it's fairly popular that night, they were advertising two things. They were advertising, watching NFL wild card games, and they were advertising ladies night. These two groups, Michael, two groups of people, jamia and her friends, and some Alabama basketball players. They eventually meet, right? So when does that happen? Even that is a little bit complicated. Because the first time they technically meet nothing happens at all. Both of them are in the queue, which is what they call in Tuscaloosa, the line, to get into this bar called 1225. Brandon Miller, Darius miles Jaden Bradley, those are the Alabama basketball players, they arrive around 1130. And then soon after, jamia Harris, Cedric Johnson, and Asia Humphrey end up in the same line. Their groups were right next to each other. And even inadvertently, it appeared, Asia Humphrey had actually bumped into Jaden, Bradley, as one does when you're in a crowded line and you don't think anything of it. It's a light thing. You're like, okay, someone just moved or whatever. So there was no interaction, no acknowledgment from either side, but they actually had that small level of contact. By midnight, when they're getting close to getting a Brandon Miller has left, he decided the line was too long, and he went to another restaurant according to his attorney, Jim standridge. And at 1208 a.m., Darius miles and Jaden Bradley enter 1225 and among the people they see is Darius miles friend. Michael Davis, he's jumping up and down to get their attention. He's already been in 1225. About 6 or so minutes later, Jimmy Harris, Cedric Johnson, Asia Humphrey, all enter the same bar.

"Testimony today. Over the past few months, ESPN is enlisted a team of reporters. Liz Merrill, Coley Harvey, Paula Levine, and our guest today, Michael rothstein, to try to learn as much as possible about what happened on that January night.

"To follow the story out of Tuscaloosa and when more information becomes available, we will certainly report that. But as of the hour, NATO's statement is the controlling conversation from that university at the moment will talk to Carol Robinson a little bit later about what her reporting has indicated. Let's continue with Mike in Chicago. Hey, Mike. Hey, Paul, hiding, David. We were doing great. Thank you. Hey Paul, I just want to ask you about the NATO situation. I know it came out pretty recently. I'm a Tennessee ball for life, you know, Rick Barnes is a great head coach for us. And I just want to question about NATO's answer. He basically said that boys will be boys essentially. You know, and he can't control what his team does, you know, outside of practice. I just want to know you're kind of opinion on that. And isn't the head coach of a high major university, supposed to have control over his own team? Yes, I mean, there's a lot of complexities to this story and we obviously done as much reporting on as we can. First of all. Why would you ever make a statement like that about something as serious as this? Is really beyond anyone's imagination, it was terribly insensitive and his best player right now is being linked to the story, not listen, you can say directly or indirectly, but he clearly was more involved far more involved than NATO's or anybody at the university of Alabama has led on. And another player was also apparently in the vicinity and NATO actor like there are a couple of guys who were. Rehearsing horsing around with an open beer can. It's an incredibly insensitive comment considering how it worked out, but again, I'm just a commentator. I don't have all the facts right now. All I know is what NATO said today. And I can make you a prediction, though, that you've heard some of the criticism of NATO. It's going to go to DEFCON one by tomorrow. Once the rest of the national media picks up on this, there's no way that NATO comes out of this well. Or his program, just in terms of criticism, not that that means anything to him or anybody else, but it's a terrible look. And by the way, it was also a story that had gone away. I think the media had acted very had reacted very sensitively to the magnitude of the situation 5 weeks ago. When it first broke and that's all going to boomerang today. Thank you very much for the call. Appreciate it. I'm Ann is up next. Hey, good afternoon, folks. This terrible story in Tuscaloosa. And for what was discussed here today, it seems that three or four basketball players were involved in the intimidating and harassment and some vehicles kind of not allowing the vehicle that the girl was in, it was I guess the exit was obstructed or something, but there's several players that were involved in the harassment of this thing. Give me one second if you don't mind. I just want to read a couple of lines from Carol Robinson's article because I realized a lot of people are just really confused. All we've done so far is share a headline or two. And I can't think of anything any other better way. It's because I'm not proficient with the story like she is. This is her story that just broke. She writes, Alabama's freshman basketball standout Brandon Miller, everyone knows who he is by now, arguably the best player in college basketball or one of the two or three best. Brought the gun used on the Tuscaloosa strip killing of a woman that led to capital murder charges for his now former teammate Darius miles in 20 year old Michael buzz Davis, according to law enforcement testimony, miles contacted Miller, he's the player, miles was on the team, and asked him to bring his gun to where they were according to police. When Mac Miller got to the scene, miles told Davis, the heat is in the hat. According to Brandon culpepper, who is a detective, meaning that the gun was present, miles added, there is one in the head, that culpeper said meant a round was in the chamber. Miles moved his girlfriend back to get her out of line of fire, Miller's windshield was struck twice by gunfire in the shooting police testified. Another Alabama basketball player, Jaden Bradley, was also at the scene of the shooting according to testimony. So that makes three players based on my accounting. Asked by L dot com why Miller was not charged. Tuscaloosa chief deputy DA whitley said that's not a question I can answer. There's nothing we could charge him with. NATO to court said today that Miller is not in any kind of trouble. So this is I didn't mean to interrupt your call. I remember, but that better explains what we are talking about here. Exactly. And just I'm just sitting here thinking and because all of this is new to me as it is to you. But you know, at some point, I don't understand why these kids are and I'm not saying they did anything other than harassing their presence and that kind of thing because, you know, boys will be boys. And they were the wrong place at the wrong time. But there may not be anything legally, but had this happened to any other student in school, it would have gone before the student council group, and they would have probably voted these people out of school and the administration were to win along with that. Yeah, I mean, let me stop you right there. You've raised a very salient point. Let's forget the law for a second, okay? Right. Alabama has a carry law that where he's 20. So he could legally carry that gun. So that's not an issue. Another question is, is he an accessory? It's a very, it's a very thin case, but clearly he's involved. Is he not? I mean, he brought the gun that was used in what ultimately turned out to be a murder. So even if he's not legally charged with being an accessory, some other charge, then you have a whole other set of questions. Let's forget this, forget the school for a second, okay? Should he or should he not remain a member of the basketball team? I think has to be asked. Does it not? It has to be. Okay, we have that answer already. Nate Oates is shrugged his shoulders at the whole thing. And then is there a student conduct question? I have no idea the way the university of Alabama works. But you would think that, by the way, it looks like they've known about this from the beginning. How could you not know that they were present? Greg Byrne, who's the athletic director, went with the team on the trip to Nashville. I remember he tweeted some pictures of he and NATO's eating at some convenience store or restaurant on the way back. So he's in the loop. Everyone at the university is in the loop. So nothing that came out today, 5 weeks and two days after the story first broke comes as a surprise to anyone on that campus. Well, and let me ask you this because we hear about it all the time with coaches winning the press conference. That is when that press conference. He looked really nervous. No, he looked for us. There's no getting around that. You know, I don't know how this works out, but it's not a very good look. And then end of all this, there's an innocent girl in Birmingham, Alabama is absolutely nothing wrong. I have a good day. Quentin was up next in Georgia. Hey, Quentin. How are you doing? We're doing great. Thank you. Good to have you on. I'm listening to your show what I just called it. I got a

"tuscaloosa" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Your thoughts or questions about how you're processing this decision a week out KQED on Twitter or Facebook at KQED Forum and let me go to collar Michelle in Santa Rosa. Hi, Michel. Thanks for joining us. Hi. I was curious to find out how the law affects women who received Tress Omi diagnosis specifically. A trisomy 13 that, um, apparently what babies who have the tress only 13 do not live outside of utero for more than about a week. Um, wondering if those types of abortions are still allowed after six weeks. Michele, Thanks. Does that constitute a medical emergency? Michell Goodwin. And just for some backdrop, Texas is also enacted laws that are called pregnancy exclusion laws. Um, the term is not exact to what they provide for, but the state of Texas has enacted a law that provides that Brain dead, dead persons must continue to just state their pregnancies. Even if there are threats to the fetus. There was a case involving Marley's Mu knows. Just a few years ago, a person who collapsed 14 weeks into pregnancy and was brain dead. The state of Texas forced her to continue to just state. A non viable fetus. And this was against her do not resuscitate order against the will of her husband against the will of her parents. They ultimately sued and a Texas judge did not reach any questions on the constitutionality of it and ultimately decided that that life support could be removed from Marley's munis because the fetus had very significant abnormalities that I think is informative for this question, but it doesn't give us exact answers. As the law is written, it would seem that there is no sympathy. For what would take place in the fetus itself and let me go next to James and Redlands High, James Hi. Yes, this is James. Good morning on your mind. Uh, my My comment is that the the State of Texas law has implemented a past communist Russia. KGB tactic where neighbors turn in other neighbors for anti communist activities, and here we are, and the United States back then in the 6 50 60, 70 said. This was evidence that Communist Russia is humane. So, basically, I'm not hearing any sort of discussion about how how to Texas flip from being what they consider democracy to Communist er type. Tactics. Yeah, well and pretend that it's not. You know that It's good. Well, dreams. Your comment echoes a little bit of what this listener, writes Lisa what's to prevent someone turning Suing people into a business venture. We're assuming they'll only go after people somehow connected to an actual abortion. Michell Goodwin. We're just hearing concerns about how far reaching this could be with regard to The private, actually. Yeah, well, sure it could. In fact, there are anti abortion organizations in the state of Texas that have already set up websites so that people can begin this process of reporting and and suspicion of their neighbors. And, as Dr Verma said earlier, Texas is not the only state that has done this. During the Trump administration. There were Trump administration officials who began programs which just seems so odd and strange and horrific of tracking the periods. Of girls and women in detention centers and things like that which again must be seen as part of the same. It's chilling. It's horrific. Keep in mind that this is with a constitutional right. Abortion has not been Outlawed in the United States as a national platform, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood V. Casey still stand and yet we see this rogue activity that's been permitted in the state of Texas. I want to bring Robin Marty into the conversation. Now Director of operations for West Alabama Women's Center in Tuscaloosa. She's also the author of Handbook for a Post Rural America. Robin. Marty. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. I understand your clinics in Alabama already taking patients from Louisiana as a result of the hurricane. How concerned are you about your ability to take patients from Texas as well? That is also a place that you have seen patients from correct. So I am actually my biggest concern right now is the fact that we aren't seeing more patients from Texas. One of the things that we talked about in the first segment was about how Texas patients are looking into Colorado, looking through Mexico. We know that they're going to Kansas. We know that they're going to Oklahoma. So it seems like there are options for people who are in northern Texas who are in Western Texas. The problem is these same options do not exist for people who are over on the East side of Texas when it comes to the Gulf Coast region, Um, we have in an entire region that is without ever having expanded Medicaid so most people are uninsured in the entire region. There is a total of seven clinics between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle once you get outside of Texas. All of these clinics have at least 24 hour notice where you have to come into the clinic, leave for 24 hours and then return to the clinic in Mississippi And in Alabama, it's 48 hours. These are instrumental obstacles for lots of people who would normally be trying to get abortions in Texas and now have to move their way further out. Right now we're seeing some of Louisiana people come over. We're seeing a handful of Texas. But what I'm thinking is that within a matter of a week or two, maybe three as this continues, that's when we're going to see the real impact of this law, because right now, people who are early in pregnancy are holding on and trying to figure out if there is going to be a lot suit that's going to make things go back to normal if there's going to be some sort of way that they will not have to leave their states and trying to put together the logistics financial The personally in getting childcare getting time off of work all of these steps for people who live in the gulf. Those are far far more difficult than they are for those who live on the other side of Texas, and even if they do come, I just want to underscore the point you were making that Alabama itself has its own restrictive. Laws, and so it is very difficult to obtain one there. Do you have any sense of whether Alabama as some other states have I believe the list is growing to about seven have expressed some interest in replicating Texas's law that the same is true in Alabama. At this point. We have not heard any noise about replicating it in Alabama or in Mississippi, but also realized that Alabama is, of course, the first state that passed a total complete abortion ban. Alabama is the state that has has a personhood amendments in its state constitution. Um, so are we expecting something like this to come? Most Definitely. Um, has anybody said that they are the ones who are signaling that this is going to have And nobody yet, But we also know that what might be a bigger problem for us is that there is talk that this will happen in Florida and Florida at this point is essentially the only place in the Gulf region where a person can easily access an abortion. It's the only state that has multiple clinics. Um, a number of which is proportional to the amount of people who live there. It's the only place that does not have a waiting period. So we already see so many of our patients trying to go over to Florida. Just because It's so much easier to do it all at once. If Florida ends up in acting something that makes their clinics closed. I truly do not know what will happen in the vault. Um, let me go to collar Petra in Oakland. Hi, Petra. Hi. Good morning. I'm wondering, how is it possible legally that the state can mandate, for example, not to have an abortion after six weeks, but the state cannot mandate to have a covid vaccine out of Ambassador.

And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well.

They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it.

I mean the thing that that we're probably the most proud of paul is just the fact you know we got thumped tuscaloosa and we got beat before that at lsu When we were in bad rooch pretty pretty bad too and and We were able to bounce back between those two games. We had a really physical practice with weighted vests. And and you know. I'm not sure we had enough legs To play the fast place style of play that that obama plays and coach you know gets his guys really get out and run and and You know looking back. We knew that that practice would you know would would maybe set us back slightly but we're trying to think long term. We had a great environment. I mean we. You know i understand. It's a pandemic but we had a really good student section. Our crowd was good. There's there's there's been a lot of excitement over the last few weeks with the way that the team is played and and it was a big game. Th you know anytime you get a top ten cheap You know and you can you can you number one. You don't get a lot of opportunities to play top ten teams then when you do and you're able to to get a win. It is a big deal for the fans at former players boosters and and for the student athletes to reward them for for a lot of hard work but we have incredible respect coach oats and his team and we know that you know they're one of the top teams in the entire country so it was a big win. But you're right you gotta turn the page. And that's part of your team is having maturity when you do win a big game two to turn the page and get ready for your next game. I mean you're now final two days of february and and certainly you're going to be going through this now. You're going to be going through this in the sec tournament and ultimately in the nc double a. tournament for for a program that has not won a lot of big games lately. How drill that into their their minds. That this was fantastic. But it doesn't mean anything tomorrow. I mean i think you know all you can do. Really paul's just continue to talk. educate You know. I told him today that you know. I'm a lot older than them. I'm getting getting towards being an old man. And and sometimes you gotta listen to your elders a little bit on on some of these things that you talk about that you know the game you know tomorrow when we play l. s. u. the prior game against lsu doesn't matter and our pr- prior win against alabama doesn't matter there's forty minutes you've got to go out you got to be focused and You know it's. I think that that just kind of how it is and and You know the good thing is having gone through it nevada. You know none of those guys that we had there had really been through it either But i think the big thing is just understanding that each day. You've got to continue to get better. I mean even you know with with with three games to go now. We're talking about how we can get better. We're talking about improving our practice habits. We we do a to onto pick and roll defensive drill today that i'm sure they weren't really excited about doing a two onto pick and roll drill that might be. You would consider a training camp drill but we want to get better and anybody that aspires to play beyond college. Basketball should should want to become a better pick and roll defensive player so hopefully you know you can get your guys excited to understand that you know you're not just doing it for the lead these last three games and then tournament situations you're doing it for the longevity of your career as
Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

Mike Area the superintendent of Tuscaloosa City schools, talk about the distribution to the vaccines for those folks down there, Mike. Good morning. Welcome in. Morning. Thank you for having me. So your superintendent City schools. They're all the teachers staff members that want them going to be getting the vaccines today is that the deal sometime this weekend? So we worked it out with our local hospital here. Druid City Hospital. They have been terrific in responding quickly when vaccines became available to prioritize our educators in Tuscaloosa, so they have opened up two weekends. This coming weekend and next weekend, Saturday and Sunday dedicated to educators in The Tuscaloosa area, So our educators have been able to go online and request an appointment and set an appointment. We think this gets a lot of our teachers, a lot of our educators done. We've still may need more, but we're assessing that as we get through these next two educator weekends at D. C. H. No, Susan, your wife's getting the vaccine as well. And she teaches over at the university. Do the employees and staff members there? Are they part of that as well as it all educators in the area? It's a Zafar as we for us right now. The two weekends, it's R R K 12 educators in Tuscaloosa. So D C H is made that available to every educator, every employee. Of Tuscaloosa Cities Goals Tuscaloosa County Schools in an attempt to get our K 12 folks, um vaccinated. How about the university? Any word from how they're doing their rollout? I'm not aware of theirs. I know they've They've got a plan and they've been doing it, but I don't know the specifics of there. Okay? Okay. I know it's different around the state as far as the communities having the vaccines, and I think you know you sign up. You get the vaccine if there's room if you fit the criteria But it's different from community to community. For instance, in Selma, you know they might have 100 vaccines, for instance, and only 40 people sign up. And then all of a sudden if you sign up in your from outside the area, you can go. Is this a more controlled group there with the with the staff of the schools? Having to show idea that type of thing. So, for instance, somebody that works at a hardware store can't jump in this line as well. Correct. No, I think the CH has done a wonderful job for us. They are requiring that yes, we sign up through an online document. When we show up for the vaccination. We have to have our our employee I d card to verify that we are an educator with one of the school systems. Well, you know, I might guy I'm a knave a kit of getting back to work because of the pandemic and getting kids back in school. You know, you hear the unfortunate statistics, sometimes where the rate of suicide in young people tend to 14 years is Astronomically going up because of the isolation. You know the lack of being around socially with students and fellow friends and whatnot. I know Hoover here is getting ready to go back to five days. Your position on where we're at with this pandemic real quickly now and your thoughts on getting these kids back in school. I think all educators we all want our students back in school all five days a week. I think we've learned a lot Every day we get through this. We learn more about our precautions and things that we can do to Protect our employees and protect our students. But were we need We need our students back where we're back in school right now, four days a week with one day being virtual, that it's going well is going as well as a candy, but we were ready. We want five days a week. But getting our employees protected and saved is a really important first line in being able to do this work and do it well. You anticipate by next fall that do you know everybody's going to be back with the virtual options still be available for schools run not only our state, but the country. Do you think you know? Come next August? Or was that yet to be seen? As far as okay, Virtual is done. Let's all get back into the classroom. You know, I think virtual was always an option in our state. At the secondary level. I think this this pandemic has taught us what we are what we could do well in a virtual space. But we also it also affirmed that that we know our students do best when they're in a classroom, Not all surgeons. For some students. The virtual option actually is a really good option. So I think we walk out of this next year with virtual options for some students, not at the scale that we were this year. Hopefully, I'm But our goal is to get our students as many of our students has spent back into classrooms five days a week in the fall.

Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.
"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views. The company touts its pay and benefits and it's pushing to delay the election, appealing for the vote to take place in person instead of by mail, despite current virus concerns.

They didn't take care of business when they needed to jacksonville or in tuscaloosa and so they're sitting out this week so you don't get to see it but it's been happening on saturdays in athens and this georgia outgoing class.

So there's a lot of of anger and frustration and disappointment and all george can do now is hope that they get a good bowl draw. I think they need notre dame to upset clemson. I think if that happens. And if chalk holds and ohio state beat the bad northwestern and alabama roles florida. You could see georgia clemson in the orange bowl and i think that could excite the georgia fan but as things currently project. You're looking maybe. Cincinnati georgia in which case. Maybe some georgia guys opt out and say you know what it's cincinnati. It's it's not a real game.
