"Folks, welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his scene because The Blob was supposed to eat him, but he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest, Eric Mataxas. If you listen to my first hour with Robert Leon Davis, his book is Running Scared. This is a New Orleans cop who became corrupt, got arrested, and then decides to skip off into the woods of Canada for the rest of his life and survive off the land running from the law. One of the most amazing stories just beyond belief. We got pretty far in the story, but I said we got to do part two. Hey there, Robert Leon Davis, welcome back to the program. I cannot get over your story, and I don't want to speed past that. I said, we got to do part two because this is so rich. For people who are just tuning in, if you didn't listen to part one with Robert Leon Davis, the book is Running Scared Beyond Belief. This is one of these stories. I cannot believe it. It says, for 22 years, a fugitive, the corrupt cop busted by God. And this doesn't even begin to tell the riches of this story. So when we last left you, you had escaped the law, you're a corrupt cop, you're going to go to Angola prison, you know you're going to die, and you make a decision to study up and to figure out how to live off the land. Your only hope is to escape into the wild woods of Canada and to live your life out there. So you succeed in doing that, as we heard in the last show, and now you are alone in the woods, the deep woods of Canada. What are you planning to do up there with the rest of your life? Well, by this time, after a few years of living out there, when I first came out, because I really came out one day and went into town, I guess I had been out in the woods there for about two, maybe two years, two and a half years straight without seeing anybody doing anything. You might play tricks on you, all kinds of stuff, you're talking to yourself, and I began to have vision problems where I couldn't see that good anymore. I thought I maybe was beginning to have a tumor, I don't know why my mind went there, but I said, I'm probably going to have some kind of brain tumor, because I had some studies on some medicines, like I said, first aid technique and stuff like that. And so I came out the woods, and it was very surreal coming out of the woods. Now, what part of Canada are you in? Are you still in that same area, or did you go north? I'm about 100 miles west of Montreal, in Gatineau National Forest. Okay. And so I come out onto the main highway, and I start walking down the highway towards the nearest town, trying to get to Montreal. And lo and behold, after two, two and a half years of standing out in the woods, lo and behold, who comes down the road? An Ontario provincial police officer, and asked me, do I need a lift? I was going to say at that point, I don't know what the answer is. What's the answer? Yes, I have to say yes. Otherwise, I would be suspicious. I'm out in the middle of nowhere, and I just happened to reach an area where there were some tourists. So I just thought, maybe this guy is just a hiker, a day hiker. And so I took the ride, and for the first time, when I got behind, I got in the back of his vehicle, for the first time, I smelt myself, because of the plexiglass. I was in an enclosed area, and it wasn't nothing nice. And I was going to say, if he smells you, he knows you're not a day hiker. Well, apparently, he couldn't smell me. But he gave me a ride to a nearest town, and I was able to go to a mission at that time and explain to them that I needed to see a doctor and so forth and so forth. But Montreal, even back then, Montreal, there's a lot of blacks in Montreal. People probably don't know that, because a lot of people from the islands, if they can't, like Jamaica Haiti, and if they can't get into the US, that's where they go. I didn't know that. I would never expect to see so many black people in Montreal. That's interesting. Okay, so you could blend in a little bit. Well, what I mean is from Haiti, mostly, because they shared a common language with the French in Montreal. I forgot about that. Okay. Yeah, that's the key. That's the key. And so therefore, I was looked upon as a Haitian and studied up on some French and knew some French. Now, that's one thing I had known that helped me is that I knew some basic French living in New Orleans. And I studied it when I was in Montreal. So I got along enough to be able to have a conversation in it. And so I went to a mission and lo and behold, found out that it wasn't a problem with reading too much. If you read the Merc Manual, you think you're dying from nine different things. Well, yeah, that's what I said. Too much knowledge is bad for years and years, because you get to thinking all kinds of stuff. And by that time, I wasn't as hot, even though I know the police was still looking for me, because later, when I gave myself up, my mom told me after the 27 years, my mom told me that they were still doing a stakeouts at the house, even years after that. Twenty years later? Yeah, she told me 20 years after I gave myself up. Oh, I see. That all the way up until like the fifth or sixth year, they were still doing wild taps on her phone. And of course, I wasn't going to tell, I wasn't going to call, because the worst time to call anybody is on my favorite holidays and that's Thanksgiving and Christmas. And those are the days that they will set you up on. So I came on back and I came into some of the cities and for maybe a week I did a little work enough to maybe get some canned goods. Well, now hang on. So you're still living in the woods, but you will come out now and again. And this is, again, this is in Canada, you're west of Montreal. So you're living in the woods, but you feel safe enough to come out now and again to do what? Just to be able to earn enough money to get some basic stuff like canned. See, one thing I had missed and I talk about, I think I talked about a book. The one thing I had missed out in the woods, I missed coffee. Okay. This, you are just so full of surprises. I don't know what you're going to say next. Oh, you're going to like this one. You missed coffee. Yes. And the other thing that I missed that I wish I had was a toenail clipper. Because I had to ball myself up like a child to bite my toenails off because it was going through my socks at a great rate. And I needed my socks for warmth. You are bringing up stuff that most people, including you, would not think of ahead of time. That is very funny. No, you don't think about that. I mean, especially toenail clippers. And I got pretty adapt at me. I could clip them pretty good with my teeth. I don't need that image. Brother, I rebuke you. Okay, I won't give you that. I don't need the image of a man in the woods of Canada doing that. But I mean, this is really nuts. If anybody's thinking about going living in the woods, be sure and pack a toenail clipper or something. Okay. So you needed some stuff. So you go and you said you would work odd jobs, or what would you do? Just go. Well, what I would do is I found, remember, I found, the first thing I did was found a fence. And remember, I was adapt at stealing cars. I was stripping them. Montreal, they love American cars. And I found the fence. And I would just go back to my same thing, hot wire car. And then I would strip it down for the usual parts. And I'd sell it to the fence. And then I'd go get some canned goods, like coffee and Vienna sausage, Spam. That's my favorite meal. My wife won't cook it. Oh, I love it, you know. And so that, even though I was hunting, so you got to remember now, for the first two years I'm out there, I'm existing only on game. Game can be kind of gamey. Well, game is gamey. I mean, you know. You're looking for a little chicken or a little something and you got to eat raccoon. What kind of, what kind, what did you eat? We're talking about whitetail deer. You won't find that in New Orleans. Well, we had, they had some rabbits. Their rabbits was called hares because they were huge. Okay. They were three times the size of a rabbit. I would eat that. They had, just to mention whitetail deer, they had beavers out there. Beefy is good. They had what? Beaver. Beaver? Yeah. I thought beaver would, that they would be really like a strong, strong taste, too strong. We're going to go to a break. We're going to go to a break and I'm going to interrogate you on what other wild game you ate. We've covered the toenail thing, so we're not going to return to that subject ever in my lifetime. We'll be right back, folks. I'm talking to Robert Leon Davis. The book is Running Scared. Tell me why Relief Factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question. Just the other night, I was asked that question. Well, the owners of Relief Factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right. Designed to heal. And I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated Relief Factor for them selected the four best ingredients. Yes. 100 % drug -free ingredients. And each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three -week quick start discounted to only $19 .95 to see if it'll work for you.

But I would eat, like I tell anyone, I would eat stuff a big oat would pass up on at that point because we're talking about a desperation mode type of thing when it comes down to survival. If you ate a turkey vulture, now turkey vulture, I mean anybody who has seen a vulture, they are some of the foulest looking creatures. They look like something right out of hell. They're just ugly, nasty, but if you're hungry, you're not asking questions. Well, that's it. I mean, you know, I didn't eat for a taste. I mean, it wasn't like I had salt and pepper out there in olive oil. I ate pretty fishin' for a second. Wait, you couldn't get salt and pepper after you, you know... Well, yeah, sometimes I could, but I developed a taste, and that's a funny thing. You develop a taste where if you don't do certain stuff, like today, I mean, I have to, even today, my doctor see me, he has to make me have, he has to make, literally make me have some salt on food because my salt level is extremely low, too, it's dangerous. I mean, it's like I'm not used to it anymore, and if I taste something with salt, it's, you know, with sugar, I can't have sugar. It's very, you know, I'm not used to it anymore. You detoxed in the woods of Canada. I detoxed from it, yeah. I just detoxed from it. It sounds like you didn't detox from caffeine.
Fresh update on "twenty year" discussed on The Rev & The Rabbi
"State doctor yohan x and the grand niece of pope is the twelve princess georgia pachelli along with william do we know who is a fantastic researcher here and myself i'll moderating be it we're going to have a panel discussion at the cure a of ours roman catholic church at that merrick long island and everybody is welcome to come it's going to be a wonderful event because we're encouraging people to come with all of that quick in doubt if the ideal thing happened what do you hope to companies well again the thing is that we you know what are the accusations to get fired twelve with that he was silent during the war and silent when the arrest the roman jews were arrested which is the exact opposite is true he was actually screaming at the top of his lungs reaching out to literally every catholic parish every nuncio every single catholic organization to do that what they can to save jewish lives any any succeeded according to those who it actually lived through the war and those who actually understand military events that if never you've served your country in the military you have no idea of covert actions or deceptions and so on but those people who lived through the war a hundred percent of them claim that paisa 12 is one of the greatest heroes especially to the jewish people than anybody else in fact an israeli historian pincus lapidae wrote the book three popes and the jews where he claimed that the catholic church under the pontificate of pais the 12th saved 847 000 jewish lives all over the world and that today is 25 of the entire world's jewish population in addition what we've done what paved the way is done since 2006 was gather as much primary first documentation on our website free to look for anyone to see and we've now got 76 000 pages of documents proving without question that he was in fact one of the greatest heroes the event at on october 16th is very clearly going to deal with the what happened that day because all of a sudden at two o 'clock the day of october 16th all of the arrests stopped and the jews who were living in rome and there were up to 11 000 at the time from from different countries and from rome were almost instantly hidden they were hidden in catholic homes in parishes was and it extraordinary and that's why say i when they say his silence we're going to explain exactly what happened according to primary documents of what why why he couldn't speak out publicly when they arrested the 1259 jews ultimately they 1023 were sent to auschwitz but we went to germany we got the original telegram from berlin to arrest the 8 000 jews to set be sent to mount thousand as hostages we we also have the testimony of heinrich himler's deputy general carl wolf who is the commander in italy of how hitler ordered him to develop a plan to invade the Vatican we have all of this information and the fact that the pope used that because the military were petrified that hitler would order this would order the invasion of the Vatican because in a military sense they knew that that would cause massive uprising in all the catholic countries of europe and what they couldn't they would have to fight the war and supply the troops and they have to then put down these all massive uprisings so they they tried to do everything to dissuade hitler from ordering this the pope knew this and so he used the threat of speaking out which would have triggered the order for the arrest to create all of the circumstances which ended the arrest of the roman jews at two o 'clock the day they started it's amazing and we have the documents to prove it we have the testimony to prove it so it's it's a very important event we're inviting all of your listeners to come out to long island to a curie of ours roman catholic church 23 23 merrick avenue in merrick long island at six o 'clock in the evening on the 16th and you'll get to meet these wonderful experts and we're really hoping that we're going to have a really good turnout because we really are encouraging okay we're out of time thank you gary krupp and i look forward to your uh... you have it you come back on tell us the results absolutely with great pleasure

uh... the cats and cars we shall tell me ten tell me about yourself tell me about what's going thanks so much for having me well the issue with the whales is a big deal i have been involved in looking at large scale it at impacts of those large turbines for nearly twenty years at this point but over the the last year i've been really involved with the offshore wind development and watching what's happening there and this spike in whale deaths that have occurred really beginning in december and and you know almost weekly or having dead whales uh... i'm myself and other start to investigate what is going on and what we found is very surprising first i'll tell you that the federal government is absolutely committed to the idea that that the whale deaths have nothing to do with offshore wind development and and and pre -construction activities that are happening. Lisa, the federal government doesn't lie do they? hahahaha i would like to think otherwise i wasn't in the cusablanca movie i'm shocked shocked there's gambling in this place? it's very disturbing it's very disturbing and when you get such adamant responses back from the federal government where they will
A Digital Paradigm Shift Through the Lens of Finance - Greg Cross Co-founder of Soul Machines on Virtual Humans and Interactive Animation - Voicebot Podcast Ep 230 - burst 11
"I think of banking and finance is a good way includes the will becoming more transactional. Yeah when when. I grew up my mom and dad to go into the bank of reweight. Bank the patriot. Yo by that used to have to go to the bank every week. Get cash Yet this year that's long gone as many generations of technology that that have come along but is the bank managing you every single one of the customers by nice again Over time your so. We go through numerous now to the point where we'll right now and it what's happened in the code will in many parts of the world was young pool with you know seeing some of our big banking clients on a regular devices and people thought that pre cover that they had pretty high penetration rights of iran on smartphones. But guess what they went through the roof last year could banks because all of a sudden the banking completely Spliced retail bank The the the that that evolving competitive sh- paradigm shift between the banks and the digital banks and the traditional banks. We saw we actually is to become a stop become one So net will you. People have stopped yemen. This was something. I your head really thought about to be honest but i still into co own australian bank couple of weeks ago and Cash handling has plummeted one of the big reasons to have a retail retail branch which is cash handling a type of people. Don't wanna handle keishi anymore aside. We've move money as become eletronic Yeah and look. I obviously haven't traveled use the last twelve months. I mean in the in the us. Yo you can't go anywhere without a dollar bill but but literally The amount of cash physical cash in circulation this changing so these signs of some of the macro trends that again to emerge for of banking for retailing The consumer good as we stopped move forward into the future. I think of the rise of e-trade is an interesting example. Here before e-trade came up no one would think about buying stocks without a broker with. They had a personal relationship with charles. Schwab was popular. But you would call somebody place the order for you and what we see now is stock trading. There is no human behind it made if we look. Robin hood is sorta z. A perfect example of the next phase of that but you know obviously two generations past banking since then obviously with the kick in the pants from ed even accelerated that process which has been underway for twenty years. But i think you're drawing an interesting thesis here that every industry is going towards that same evolution. It's just the question is how far behind banking are they. Are they right behind banking and that they're going to this more high transactional relationship versus high relational interaction or are they. Are they a few years. Do they have a little time before. That really takes. Hold look I think every industry is every industry is having to think in in the in the world we live in today is having to figure out how mun digital impacts every aspect of business. Today i mean with me ultimately. We are in enterprise software. We sell solutions to begin prize. But i've got a. I've got a lad sales organization in the us and that that now selling to Yeah the now selling to Your c. level executives in big corporations Your enterprise selling young for my whole career has been about face to face interaction and building a relationship of this was a huge paradigm shift for you know for the industry And even in a business to business sick that the implications of digital the will we live in a having a real life impact on a day-to-day vice already You will learn about the efficiencies of being able to conduct more business. A and more meetings and digitally So y- is actually invading becoming an integral part of your the data. Dave way we would. We can now live Anywhere in the world and do jobs.
Fresh update on "twenty year" discussed on Red Eye Radio
"Nothing i've seen in it if not a on life i've seen too many people lose jobs and and i don't i'd just i don't care whether you're union worker or not a union worker i don't like it be when people lose jobs i don't like it when management lies or when union leadership leadership i lies don't like it when government lies i don't like it when management lies i union leaders lie to cover across the board uh... and by the way to tom eric and i have because he kept saying that and eric you were actually talking he thought you were me i think at times uh... but we have the same agreement on this with the leadership ship of of the u_-eight w and the leadership of many unions out there over the last twenty years jumping aboard on the whole climate change that's maddening because i want to see this happen where they are asking for and officially endorsing him destruction the of their own industry i'd either i i don't even know where to start in terms of wrapping my brain around that and that's where my fury came from my life as there's fury you heard you heard me curious on on furious and i'm furious at how gullible people are and i'm furious time and and look i know and i thank you for listening tom because you said you have any agree with this most the time and i i really really appreciate that but i'm furious because in my mind um in my mind to be blunt i view you as being gullible because you claim you have no idea of the economics of electric vehicles but you trust your union leadership well i don't trust anybody i'm i'm sort of like the uh... the uh... the the nuclear arms deals of the eighties and vera trust and verify which means the verify is a very important part of of trust which means understanding economics the economic model is not there for the economic model not to be there and say but i blindly trust someone on right eye radio no i didn't get it may cut it if you're dealing with union leadership i don't think it cuts it with the majority of the u a w that actually believes that the success of the automobile companies which is the uh... is to pay you know is is a is uh... a better shot of happening then if you were producing easel vehicles i don't think anybody buys it and i've seen buying i've seen the union we've seen the union leadership promote illegal immigration against what the union members want and by the way this is not a completely different discussion that we have about and unions you know where they're going in the private sector because we've no one said this is not a discussion this this is a discussion on jobs right now as it exists right now and there are people that work without unions there are people that work with unions but the fact is the union leadership on illegal immigration has you know over and over again has supported what their right you saw biden come in day one tens of thousands of union jobs gone did you hear it did you hear the you wrote democrats come on and say excuse me the union leadership come on and say this is it we can't support no we may remain neutral we may not support republicans but we're not going to support democrats anymore did you hear that no no and they killed those jobs for no reason at all none except imagery and symbolism we saw the coal miners union we saw what would happen there it's not like there's a history of this and we got the same goal you guys don't stand because you're conservative right wingers who hate unions well I hope you can sleep well at night blaming somebody else and I'm saying not that the union leadership could stop what's going on but there are certain things where the union leadership could have been louder and said we cannot survive with this business model and we do support management on wanting to make a profit with gasoline and diesel powered engines and if if UAW comes out and says we're no longer going to endorse the Democratic Party because we believe that they are part of the demise then we can have a conversation yeah but remember we're not alone on this Lauren Summers who is as liberal Democrat as you can get with the Obama administration when asked going what's on had the exact same thoughts we had this looks like the endgame as much as you can now because the business model is going to fail yep yep yep and the business model is going to fail which then the union fails and and I hope I don't see man I hope I'm wrong that we get politicians in there they can reverse I think eventually you have to reverse mandates the because it's not going to work right yeah I don't see it anytime soon you have to reverses looks like the grid you have to you have to reverse what they plan on doing to the grid because the public will just will not accept it right and as we have said if you wish the unions to survive in non right -to -work states you better be producing a product that produces a profit if you can you can criticize me or us whatever for our anger in theory you heard I don't believe you can criticize us for our actual opinion on the logic of economics and whether the UAW or anybody can survive whether you're a private sector worker or union worker survive on a business model that is planned to lose money we're seeing it happen in real time right now and yet we still can't get a union worker that you know that then that was the question I had to him you see the profits going away right now don't you well I'm not a you're either blinded by your loyalty to the Union or you're not being honest and and sorry that's just and I it comes back up to me again I just I burn when you've got you know people lying or living in a delusional state and people lose their jobs because I'm sorry that's the one thing you know the one thing that for you know because all workers work hard yeah right I know union shops you work hard everybody's working hard this gets down to the individual and how horrible it is to lose a job and the feeling that you have when you lose a job and when it doesn't have to happen and this in case because of the strength of the Democratic Party that has been supported I don't know of more support for the Democratic Party than unions in this country do you know no I don't know don't of I know of any other organization and the BS of the climate change is not just now she could sit there sit and there go well it's not all you know Sean Fain's fault no but he's a continuation of that leadership that has you know it's been over the last 20 years if they issue an endorsement for the reelection of the current administration then yeah they're they're officially asking for the demise of let's their industry go to Deanna in Virginia Deanna welcome you're on red -eye radio okay hang on here that we can't go to a phone call right okay

voted for you Sean Fain and I

Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children. He says the. Us government

From the Bloomberg newsroom I'm Ed Corey on WTOP. it's 841 many for parents the only thing harder than finding good child care is paying for it and things are about to get harder. This week WTOP has been taking a look at child care at a new age. WTOP's John Dolman reporting on how bad things might get. The child care industry is teetering with a persistent problem of high prices for families low wages for early educators and just not enough childcare spots and programs for the demand that there is. And a substantial chunk of the industry could collapse. Says Laura Valle Gutierrez a fellow at the Century Foundation. It's really going to be a problem. It's a very challenging business model to make work. Laura Wheel -Dreyer is the executive director of the Maryland Family Network. Trends that started before the pandemic were only exacerbated by COVID. It forced a quickly declining number of in -home providers to choose between a job that rarely offers benefits and one that might offer signing bonuses and substantially higher wages outside the home. Childcare can't compete with that. Soon the cost and we already pay some of the highest costs here in the country is about to go but up more with federal stabilization subsidies created in 2021 coming to an end this weekend.

A Knee or Hip ‘Replacement’ Without Surgery? It’s on the Horizon
"Protocols coming out in regenerative medicine that that kind of restore and re-grow articulate cartilage which that that layer of connective tissue that covers the end of our bones and allows joints to maneuver in in the past. You know we'd have to get that type of thing resurfaced or get a knee joint replacement which lot times a young person like me. Who's young been pushing. My body really hard for the past twenty years. The idea of getting a joint replacement is not that that Exciting of a prospect especially considering those those joint replacements don't don't last for real long time. This article got into everything from like brand new experimental drugs like one called spree. Fairmont which stimulates cartilage cells. These little carla shells called contra sites to grow it gets into another injectable. Drug called the laura civil servant and that inhibits the proteins that caused like carlucci generation than develop the development of of arthritis. And then it also gets into these really cool procedures like Like an inter office procedure. Where you'd actually take bone marrow out of a patient's say hip and then what you do is you would go in with a with a needle like digital ultrasound. Guided imaging and drill little holes in the in the surface where you see cartilage generation kind of like in the same way you would fertilize lawn and then you just fill all those little holes with the bone marrow and the bone marrow stimulates the new cartilage to grow in a similar ways. You would get if you were literally just like repair. All the cartilage almost like a surgical glue like a surgical cartilage glue
The Days After 9/11: Will Things Ever Be Funny Again?
"On amazon music or with one plus in the days after nine eleven it really did feel like nothing would ever be funny again. Welcome to the late show. This is our first show on the air. Sense of new york and washington were attacked. Even the men on late night had abandoned their post. Then shuffled back. One by one cowed by their lack of words to describe what had happened. Letterman came. I watching all of this. I wasn't sure of that. I should be doing a television show because for for twenty years we've been in in the city making fun of everything making fun of the city making fun of my hair making fun of paul well. Conan came the next night. I will be very honest with you. I have no idea how to do what we've been doing. I know i have no idea how we're going to get back to doing this again. That's how we all feel. And then jon stewart two nights later. I was a producer on the daily show. Then standing just offstage with the rest of the staff feeling like someone had pulled the parking brake at full speed. Our senses of humor had dropped right out of the bottom of the car. So we're we're gonna take a break. And i'm going to stop slobbering on myself in the desk and we're going to get back to this and it's gonna be fun and funny and it's going to be the same as it was and i thank you. We'll be right back. I just assumed well. We can't do humor todd. Hanson was the head writer at the satirical newspaper the onion at the time. Everyone on the staff assumed that and so we cancelled it and we just went dark and of course who cares. It's just comedy right. But here's the problem the onion isn't just a scrappy. College comedy thing anymore. They have financial backers they have payroll. They have add biased fulfil hell. They still have to pay. They might be giants. They can't just stop printing whenever they want. They have to put there next issue. A whole newspaper full of
U.S., Australia and UK Unveil New Security Partnership
"The biden administration's efforts to counter chinese dominance in asia and support allies in the region is gathering steam. This week the us uk and australia agreed a landmark security pact in the indo pacific. The move will see australia. Build nuclear powered submarines for the first time the pack will also cover artificial intelligence cyber and quantum technologies. So what does all this mean for australia. Monaco's contributor in canberra ardebili. Gary sent us. This report the news that ustralia is going to be getting nuclear-powered submarines came out of the blue five years ago. We signed an agreement with the french to provide us with diesel-powered submarines. It has since become clear that these technology would not be adequate to meet security challenges. Plus they wouldn't be delivered for almost twenty years at the same time. Need security partnership between australia. The us and uk was announced called aucas. All of this is pretty big knees. Even if you're not someone to spend a lot of time thinking about submarines the full details haven't yet been announced but it is clear that it's all about sending a strong message to china. Tensions between australia and china has been increasing over the past few years so this deal is all about australia. Proving to beijing that it has big and powerful allies that it can rely on but it will get australia. Offside with other friends new zealand and pacific countries are avowedly anti nuclear. Oh new zealand has already said it won't allow the subs in its waters. Australia is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. So we can expect that e inspectors will be doorsteps wanting access and china has put out a statement. Saying it's irresponsible big questions now. Are this tacitly. Say that his strategy is undoubtedly in a cold war situation with china. And just how much safer will australia. Now be
A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West
"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes

We Must Not Let the Future Generations Forget 9/11
"So as we look at twenty years later at nine eleven we have to do. And this is a call to action for every single adult out there in every single parent which you need to tell this generation didn't grow up with nine eleven. What happened on nine eleven. We have people that work for us at turning point. Usa that have no memory of nine eleven. None you now have a generation of leaders that are going to be growing up with no idea of what it's like where your entire world. All of geopolitics changes almost overnight. Air travel changed for good. How the military change almost everything chain. I know so. Many members of my generation have their own story of where they were and how it happened.

Remembering 9/11, 20 Years On
"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings but they cannot touch the foundation of america. Some of what we heard from president. George w bush on the evening of september eleventh. Two thousand one back with tonight. Michael beschloss celebrated author and presidential historian his latest work presidents of war. Michael also has a show called fireside history with michael beschloss. It premiered tonight and you can catch it this weekend on the choice from msnbc which is streaming on peacock. Michael so much. I want to talk about tonight. But our own mark. Murray compared nbc news polling. He found that after nine eleven seventy-two percent said the country was headed in the right direction. As of august only twenty nine percent say the country is headed in the right direction. Wonder was it an illusion to think that in times of crisis americans have always come together or have we as a people really changed that much since nine eleven. I think our system has basically broken down in the last twenty years in a way that no longer do we. Are we in a position to depend on the kind of unity for instance that we saw after pearl harbor with franklin roosevelt in nineteen forty

"And we were you know giving a pep talk That we acknowledged there was learning loss but that we have to make up for that. And actually yesterday i was talking to one of my colleagues really complaining and feeling really really frustrated that our school if not the school district has misplaced priorities. We're supposed to address learning loss Yet were once a week. We have to test of my department. english has been called out three out of the four weeks. We've been in session to take our students to cover test so the continuity is lost. Oh during your class. You're saying you're everyone's told you get out of your seats. We're heading to the nurse's office to get the tests that we do every week. Because is such an issue instead of the learning that you were told better be happening. Yes so were there and then we returned to class. We'll we'll vaccinations make a different. I mean i guess i should ask. Do you get a sense that most of your these high school students they can get vaccinated. You get a sense that most of them are already. Don't know you know. Sometimes students reveal that to me. Personally i never asked the la county department of public. Health says about percent of kids age. Twelve to fifteen have received at least one dose of the vaccine as of early september. I don't know if that will make a difference but my senior level classes have all expressed. They'd rather do remote learning because it was actually convenient. It felt safe. They had gotten into a rhythm of it if a student test positive. I don't know all the ins and out but if the student test positive is withdrawn not withdrawn from the school but haas to quarantine for ten to fourteen days and then any students in that class seated next to the positive case has to quarantine as well and it's a revolving door of students. I probably have a third of my students absent in each class because of their close contact with someone who tested positive. Okay so then. I mean just from the health side of things. Then forget the teaching but but do you vaccinated adult. Do you feel at risk right now. I'm wearing my mask right now. You're wearing a mask right now. In your classroom i am. I am constantly mast in my class even when my doors are closed and alone you can unmask But i've chosen not to just because i don't feel safe. Everyone's viral load is up in the air probably comparatively were doing really well. But it's very very scary and we just have to do better resorting to wearing your mask alone at your workspace. Basically because you know that you're around at least several unvaccinated teens however that could change according to the la unified school district very soon. Thank you so much for the time. Thanks for sharing your story. Thank you thank you so much. I hope i gave you some insight as to what's really happening. Can we're gonna take another break when we return so big businesses need to mandate vaccines. What happens to the country's most popular business ready break. One last thing is next. Talk from time to time about other podcasts. My colleagues are working on here at abc. But i want to tell you about one where you might be able to help. Write the ending. Hear me out. The year is nineteen ninety. Eight a new york computer salesman named john rufo has been sentenced for his role in one of the largest fraud scams in american history. He's ordered a show up for his prison sentence but instead he just vanishes now all these years later the us marshals and our team or following the clues tracking down leads from across the country and around the world. All along the way asking the question have you seen this man helped crack the case. The podcast have you seen. This man is available now. Regulus and one last thing last night was the official kickoff to the nfl season and football draws in one of the largest cross sections of the country. You'll be shocked to know. They were vaccination controversies there too for the person robot my family you know on my feelings to my family and myself. Some of the biggest names in the league still say they're unvaccinated others are declining to say which is kind of a giveaway. Because of this you are vaccinated. You have different rules that will apply to you this year. Then if you're unvaccinated you don't have to get tested every day. You don't have to wear a mask under league rules this year players who are vaccinated are treated way differently than those who aren't for example if you're vaccinated and you test positive for cova you can get back on the field in a matter of days for unvaccinated players you miss at least ten days even if you feel fine could be multiple games and the public will know what your choice was. The union agreed to this the unmistakable messages unvaccinated players are bigger liability to their team. But one coach made the mistake of actually admitting that everyone was considered That was part of the production. what's his. Let's start talking about this. And then also vaccinate or not urban meyer of the jacksonville. Jaguars said vaccination status might determine whether a player makes the roster. It sent shockwaves around the league. The team walked it back. Saying vaccination was not considered here. But this comment wasn't all that surprising suspension from players get cut all the time not because a moral reasons but because coaches want consistency. They want their players available regular season. And you you wake up saturday morning and they come in and tell you that you've got five guys at that. That can't play on on sunday. And it's you're starting group. That's that's gonna shake your team up. Simple star players can afford to make waves with their choices. Second and third stringers can't take that chance with their coach which is why yesterday the nfl announce more than ninety percent of its players. Heaven deed gotten the shot. But if you're thinking wow the. Nfl must really care about player. Health critics say that is belied by the other. Big thing to watch for the season. Every team is now playing an extra game. That's an extra chance for injuries for fatigue for body so breakdown with little extra compensation and it's one more week for americans to argue with each other over who's truly taking one for the team.

"State pen and talk to them that they haven't really gotten much more from him at all because there's there spent a couple more cases that were made rebecca moreau. They're still to jane. Does that are identified. But you still identified. Two of the remaining ones. Jane doe was wendy stevens. Jane doe b. Sixteen with sandra major. So there is some resolution to the cases. But there's three additional victims have been able to link you know that it's there tied up with him. But it's kelly mcguiness case lee and patricia osborne. So we're hoping at some point we can make connections on that. Let's let's close out with gary. Because you know i wanna ask you this question. I have my own thoughts and let me tell you my thought i and see if i'm somewhere near you never get everything out of criminal suspect. They they don't tell they very rarely run into anybody who tells you one hundred percent of anything. I mean steve. I mean you were debriefing. People did you ever feel somebody just cut gave you everything till it bleeds or did you feel like people were holding. There's always some peace. They hold back on you they hold back and and you know when we would you're sitting there debris from them on their criminal career with her defense attorney in the same room and you're spending days with nothing like what you guys did. But you know you're telling them anything that you tell me about now. I can't charge you with but don't tell me about capital crimes. Don't tell me about any murders committed. Which i always thought was you know. That's a big handcuffed to place on a criminal investigator because if somebody wants to own up to a murder just like the sheriff. You're talking about where you could bring closure to family to bring peace of mind to somebody but you felt like they always hold it back even even though you're you plead guilty to anything you can tell me about anything and i can not charge you with it. You always felt like there's just something that In their minds for whatever reason maybe they think it's heinous the way something happened. They don't they don't give you one hundred percent and the reason i said that. Sheriff is i believe ridgway. This is my thought. Tell me this is morgan's theory of the case. Tell me how far off base i am but ridgway would not tell you everything because he gave up a lot which he gave up his quote possessions. He owned those bodies he those were his possessions and i think he gave up a lot and i thought is one of the reasons he wouldn't tell you. Everything is still in his mind. Maybe he has his fantasy that he'll get out some day but there are he knows for some of the other bodies are but in his mind that something still for him to possess and he didn't wanna give you everything because he needed to own something to be able to get through prison or at least survive in president. Those are his private thoughts..

"It's not going to go well. It was it was bad and once they once that all fell apart They they pulled out so they left but they they you know came in and they helped us organize some things but in the end. It didn't help us well but you know at the end of the day to people don't realize too there is no federal statute on homicide in terms of just straight forward homicide. We get into terrorism and stuff later. But there's no authority for the fbi to get involved unless there's an issue of crossing state lines like kidnapping or transporting which actually comes into play. Later i want to highlight something here real quick because you talked about finding all those bodies i mean between march twenty first of nineteen eighty-four and april second in one thousand nine hundred four. There were seven bodies that were found and one of them was was initially called jane doe b b for bones jane doe bones. Ten was later eventually identified as wendy stephen. So you had wendy stevens age. Fourteen shirley whims age eighteen. Delors williams aged seventeen debbie. Twenty six terry milligan sixteen. Sandra gabbert seventeen alma and smith eighteen. I mean you've these are all extremely young women and one of the things that came out of this too was which i thought was interesting. You got this multiple homicide sane but it was how you use the us border patrol and an agent by the name of joel hard. Tell people who tell people what you came across how you came across this resource and when i read this. It's like this is for and black magic. How does this guy know this stuff. Yeah well you know. Border patrol is trained in. Some pretty unique was pretty unique talent and tracking used dogs too. By the way you know we used cadaver dogs that they call them and we use tracking dogs. But we then. I forget who first suggested calling the border patrol. It was probably one of our. You know weekly meetings that we had someone came up with. The idea. Probably knew joel. I'm trying to remember but beside the point but Joel is one of their top trackers of course on the border. That's what you know what they do. Is they track human being so they can tell you know. I can look at a broken twigs and think. It's just a broken twig but he can tell when it was snapped by.

"Two to six. I still in twenty. I still think that. There's such disconnect with the american population about that where they see you know the the careers and they missed one one thing. I do wanna put in here because i feel like we don't talk about it. Enough is is joe. General rotel wrote for book. And if you read all the way to towards the end of his he he's specifically calls out the themes that we've been talking about but he figured this out himself just by knowing kind of some of the stories that we're in it was. We hope that as people read it not just veterans but also civilians that they're seventy-one unique stories and you're going to either find path through their story more you're gonna find some form of connection and understand that you're connected to him veteran or not and that's the same thing that happens by the way in these types of platforms to and you know there are a lot of sabin's listen to this show and it's the same thing i hear is like listen. Sometimes they listen. I don't understand the acronyms you guys are talking about. Sometimes he's just a cool story but there has been many times that i've taken something away from the conversation and that's what we always said if if somebody's listening to a platform laura show like this and they're able to take one nugget that either they take an action from or they have somebody else take an action like. Hey you ought to do this you you set out to do the same thing in the book and you know it's it's that giving back that that sense of service that trying to explain that we need to remain connected all those types of things and it's just a different platform. I don't think there's enough enough. People that are trying to bridge this gap that you guys are trying to do too within the sabine in military because both sides.

"At least the theme that i took from the from the book and the power miners is we want to express how we are americans first and we are still serving our community. We want you to see. That won't take the uniform off. That wasn't the end. it was just an chapter closed. I think that the way that we sort of entice. I guess what. I would use the average civilian. Who's curious because the way we started is. Why did you wanna serve especially the one of the questions. That i've gotten so much and i just have to deflect and say enlisted in nineteen ninety nine. I want i wanted to jump out of airplanes automatic weapons blow stuff up and get some money for college. That was my know but so many people like why. Why would you. Why would you enlist in two thousand and seven right right after the you know why would you. Why would you go in and go forward with. Iraq raging in afghanistan. Finally being up speed. Why would you even enlist in twenty eleven. The way people knowing that you know as iraq's winding down there's this surge buildup in you know in in afghanistan and then even the later people's lawns dead. Why would you continue. Why would you continue to fight in this. You know these things. So that's how we start. So they they get to answer that then. It's like okay. This is what they did and then we kind of get to what we feel like is the meat of it like this is what it took for me to transition. This is what i'm doing. And this is what i'm doing now for me. That was so it was so exciting. Down pitching i want to be able to show who these men and women are now. That's why the portrait so important is that we're going to capture a moment in time. Yes but the moment in time is who they are. This second mike. All these shared experiences have gotten them to.

"That's it everybody is just a human They have a different human experience. Just being a veteran and being in the military is a part of that but most of these people in the book. They found a way to help others. And it's kinda interesting hearing what you said that you guys had two different experiences with transition but you still came to this point i think about my personal career in photography i cold turkey then gave up fashion. Which is my career and like just gave up on it but still came back to photography in some capacity. So there's things that i feel like when you stop doing things yourself and you start doing things for others where you find success. The commitment to serve i think is the thing. That's that's what unites us all for sure. And that's what that's what that life coach. Who's also a therapist you know pointed out is that that's the thing that's missing and we find that common theme and i was gonna ask you boys you start going through and asking all the questions and everything that you guys start seeing a common thread. What was the common threads that you've found. I mean we just found a common thread that we all exit in a very different way but finally arrived at the same destination. What was the common thread or was there one that you saw to the seventy one that you talked to you. You know when. I went into this because i didn't know the vet space very well and i still looked better because you got me interested. Yeah yes i didn't. I didn't know i was outside of the spectrum so i was going in thinking that all these stories are somehow going to be like not so much unique there is going to be similarities with each story and every single person interviewed had such a different story and it really put me down this path and understanding that these are just human beings to and they have their own lives and their own thoughts just because they were all in the military doesn't mean they're like from one another but the only thing that i would say that was pretty consistent across the board is most of them all had rough transitions. Yeah i was about to say you vaccinate. They all struggle with their transition. And that's the one thing. I took away from it was. That's the only thing i kept hearing over and over. So that's the main issue that's going on if they're helping people that are happy with whether life has taken them but they had a shitty transition that's the aspect that we need to focus on when we say transition. Are you saying just the first thirty days sixty days ninety days. What was right on as long as es real quick to you to give example. I mean i've had people that had a transition within a month and then they found.

"Hard is Looked at it now. It wasn't a book and even if it was a book it's a volume you know. I closed that chapter. I closed that book but it's not on the shelf anymore of pulled it off the shelf. It's something i look at it. And i reflect on and it's something that You know i. I hope every veteran does and tom's point about like what's going on right now in the veteran culture. This is a huge reason. Why i wanted to write this book. Because the veteran lifestyle the veteran influence the the people that are out on front street that have the loudest voice out there. Right now is not the vast majority of veterans. The vast majority of veterans move on to do incredible things in their businesses in their companies or in their communities and their families and their churches in their schools. You know they go on to be these incredible leaders and just people but when people are only seeing one side of it only seeing one aspect of it you either have veterans who try and aspire spire to be that or you have veterans who are like. I don't want any part of that. And they completely try move away from it but instead it should be a spectrum and it should say here are seventy one people you can look to. They all had completely different. Journeys completely. Different paths to get to where they are. They have a shared experience when they were the uniform. But that's it everybody is just a human They have a different human experience. Just being a veteran and being in the military is a.

"Filter out a whole maybe bad ideas or or give new ideas or things like that somebody there that can really just give it to your straight and i think that's so important on a lot of veterans. I didn't do that. I i was just getting ready to say to this is this is interesting in a spend that i haven't heard that makes total sense because you're entering into a world like we talked about that ninety. Nine percent of the people are not like you. And that's what you should do is assimilate in some way and who better to teach you and guide you yet. What we tend to see though is more of the case of people looking for a mentor of a veteran has gotten out in in looking for people in this book that they can connect to and go. Hey help me out and there are organizations that that's all they do is set up and make you veteran mentors but i agree with you. I think There's a lot that you can take away by understanding the other side and them sharing the story of you know. Try to share the same thing to some people. Now that have been out for a period of time is like you know the purple heart that silver star those things being put on the top of your resume really gonna impress the hell out of that to be an employer. No they're going to thank you for your service. But where are you going to add the value in that hard true sometimes it. Somebody needs to say it well. I think what's interesting too. Is that you know we as humans need to be challenged you know. We need to put herself very vulnerable uncomfortable situations so i get where veterans. Look for other veterans after transition. But that's where because it's comfortable so when you actually force yourself to be uncomfortable and final civilian counterparts. That may seem ass backwards. You're putting yourself in a position of growth and you're gonna find it to be much easier going in that route. I think kind of sticking to a of your past and then trying to transition at the same time. Yeah how was it for you. I could read the book. But i'm just curious you know your stories What's what's interesting.

"Way. And then they they're taking burst and everything but then you have those just go all right you know look natural whatever and they they just take a couple of shots in and then like it and they come out amazing because again they know like you said they know wind. Capture it how to capture specific. Look that they know is going to turn outright. And the lighting is a certain way. They already figured that out. It's just that professional i mean. How many years did you do this before leading up this. You said ten ten ten years of doing you know professional photography. That's that's a lot of photo-taking. Yeah i i mean total. It's been about fourteen. Because i did digital for about four years and then i switched to film into that for about ten But what's interesting is now that it's reprogram to me like we might have a project coming up as a team that we're gonna be working on where i have to shoot digital and unlike i really don't want to because i'm so used to film but i understand that these photos have to come out like super fast like we need to get them out that day that we're shooting the project but even with me shooting digital. I'm still going to be programmed to maybe shoot a few photos at a time rather than bursting crazy. What what's interesting about. The book is that we were talking about transition and we're talking about the stories post Combat and we focus a whole lot. And then we. We don't always get the transition aspects on this show but we try not to focus on their. I was necessarily more about if if you can take lessons. Learned from that. Great if there is something that you want to bring to the table because it it explains later why you may be wanting to talk about push. Dramatic stressor ti. That's great but the challenge. I think we all have. Is that as much as we try to talk to our brothers and sisters who are currently serving of the importance that we're all going to transition. Nobody wants to listen. So you know initially when we started this podcast. We very much focused because people said oh my knee guy to focus a little bit more on transition. We did and and people weren't listening because they feel like they've got it all figured out. So what's great about this is now. You're gonna see veterans may.

And then what are you doing now. Because that's how at least in my in my mind. Why think the true power here. And i was so excited when dan was explaining it to me is that that's how you get to see.

Were doing it as You know someone who's involved in the community who's giving back backward doing it in seventy one different unique ways with seventy-one different routes into the military and out of it. But you're going to see in the you're gonna see in the book and those stories that we collected there's tens of thousands literally millions of those stories floating around the united states. Right now on the goal is to show in to capture that i think To kind of wrap as nail that. But basically when i was trailing the country adrover costs forty two states It was a little over sixteen thousand miles in about two months but across the country. I think four times total and interviewed seventy-one veterans. But i noticed that it was kind of crazy travelling in meeting up with them but we did have a lot of structure with the question. So that's kind of helped each interview flow naturally and it wasn't so much like a a pressured like oh i got to think of a random question to ask you. It was very structured. I basically shut them the questions before we met so they kind of had an idea of what they are being processed. Exactly and like. Dan and tom said like nothing was very super deep or uncomfortable. It was more. Like how many deployments did you do. Where were you at. What missions report of okay. Now let's talk about now like and that was the majority of it and then when i was capturing their photos you know some people are a little more photogenic than others Me being photographer. I hate having my photo taken. I'm just one of those people that doesn't like it and But everyone did really good. Because i would try and capture them off. Guard like admit position them in a certain area or we'd sit down their home or in their workplace or outdoors and i would either capture them kind of doing something and they weren't just standing there with their hands in their pockets or it was more just kind.

"Mr dave reichert. Thank you well. i don't know about that. We were just busting each before the started. Because you're making fun of steve van just a typical fed. Da actually steve steve. One threat. i've noticed is between all the great cases and the people were talking to. There's one common thing and sheriff you'll you'll you'll pick up on this and agree with this. Everybody started off in law enforcement as a street cop. You see a lot of these cases where they they learn the road. They learned the ropes. They learned what it was like to actually be on the receiving end and the best agents i ever worked with whether it was a task force or anything else where people who started their time off working on city your county police department or sheriff's office because they understood what it was like to be in that position. What do you think. Well i agree with you and actually that's the best part of the entire job you know and i guess all of us look back on our career if i were to go back today even in today's environment i want to go back to work the street. It's as this where i had. The most fun made the most connection to the community and you know have the closest partnerships and friendships You know with the sheriff's office and and other police departments you do those and you know unless you've been in this occupation And what i tell people you know we get a lot of comments from young people. Say oh you know. Reg book assault markaz. Did this did that. You've inspire me to join law enforcement. What's your advice first. Piece of advice is don't ever look at this as a job. This has been. This will become a lifestyle if your professional and you do the job right. It affects everything in your life. It will affect your family. You know sorry to say that you know. I know my priorities should be god family and then the job but my priorities were completely opposite. Seemed like the job always came first but you know the good lord gave me the ability to do the job so he still gets credit. Yup absolutely one hundred percent in agreement and the other thing that It does become a lifestyle But i i really. And i know the both of you did too because we've talked a little before it's really a calling You sort of feel it That the you know that this is what i wanna do and when you get there you're going yes i mean. This is definitely what i was called to do and If you don't feel that within your first year or so then And i've seen a lot of people do that kind of move on saying yeah. You know it's a good job. It's not really for me and that's the thing. They called it a job as i never looked at it as a job for me. It was you're paying me to do this especially when a trooper. I've got my own car. I can put my finger up to the wind and decide which way i'm going to go and what i'm gonna do today. It's like you gotta be kidding me. This was like awesome house. You're on your own boss in the car but You know you've got people that you're accountable to. That's for sure but darn i hate that accountability right correct but the but the ultimate accountability to the big guy upstairs. You know that that called us in the first place and ryan and gave us like you said steve. You know opportunity to to be a servant. Yeah and that's really that's really what drove me. Who will stand..
