Caller: We Don't Expect Anybody to Pay Our Kid's College Debt
"Tell me what you think about what you just heard from Elizabeth Warren. Well, I've been a first responder for 32 years, and we saved up for my kid to go to college. And our deal with him was, you will pay for your four years and then anything after that, you'll take care of. And we don't expect anybody to pay our kids college debt. And if we start doing this, these smaller colleges like where my kid went to school, are going to go bankrupt. And now my kid decided to serve, he's going to he's serving the United States Air Force now. So he's actually serving his country after he graduated college. So I just think it's ridiculous. I don't want anybody to pay my loans for me. Hey, man, and USB so proud of your son. Yes, sir. I am very proud. Well, we're proud of him too. We're proud of you, and I thank you for your service all these years, Tammy, because you get the right perspective. It's infuriating. I mean,
In Latest Gaffe, Biden Eats Before Troops Are Fed
"We have in studio one of our newest Friends former cabinet member of the Trump administration served in the United States Air Force in the naval intelligence of the United States and rose to veterans affairs secretary. Secretary wilkie, and of course now the newest national security senior correspondent or contributed to newsmax. So let's just number them. Number one, he said that we should use chemical weapons against Russia, which is illegal. He said to the 82nd airborne, you're going to see soon yourselves in Ukraine. And then he said, that man has to go, we have to get rid of Putin. All of those had to be pulled back had to be deleted, had to be winding out by The White House. And then, as a man who served this nation in the uniforms of two different services, can you explain why it's so important that whether you're a second lieutenant or the president, you don't eat before the troops have eaten, and he did that. No. In fact, that is the key to any great military leader. You see that your troops offended you see that they are bedded down. The greatest I think of all British officers was field marshal slim. And there's a great story there were two members of the House of lords who are lieutenant colonels. In Burma, it was the monsoon season, their troops were out, on the ground, pouring rain, mud, they were sipping wine and sherry in their tents with a heater. They were private that evening. If I can't slim, master them down to PFCs. Yes, two lords. That's how important that

"A book's been written called the spirit to soar. And it's about the true story of former orphan and POW lieutenant colonel Barry bridger, U.S. Air Force, retired, colonel brazier, I am also a lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force as well. Finished it got 20 years and so we'll see if I make it that way. Then you got Jim, Peterson. Jim is with us, and he is on that other blue, a little bit darker below the navy side, which I actually started in. But I spent more of my time with the green guys down at camp Pendleton when I was there as a chaplain, but folks, guys, it's good to have you all with us. This has been an exciting I got to look over the book. And let me just tell you, Jim for riding it, but Barry for sir for you and what you've been through. Thank you both for service and I'm looking forward to some discussion here. So am I let it rip? Here we are too. I love it. Well, let's start off jam almost start off with you on the riding of the book. You ride in the book about why you started it, but you chose it to be a biography, but also a lifeless and explain that a little bit. Well, you know, Malcolm gladwell wrote a book called outliers. And he talks about people who do extraordinary things. So started out, I've observed very known very over 30 years now. And I've observed him in the things that he does, I knew a story, but I didn't know it all that well. And once I learned his story, I told him, one day I met a writer biography in that process. I opened up the discussion of this biography saying that berry's been an inspiration in my life. I've learned so much and so a publicist said, it's a life lesson book. So we put out 17 life lessons that I've learned from Barry's life. And he's had a tremendous impact on my life.
Zelensky Addresses U.S. Lawmakers: Charlie's Reaction
"Just a couple minutes ago, zelensky, the president of Ukraine, addressed Congress. This is the number one news story right now, really in the world, where zelensky, who is under siege from the aggression of Vladimir Putin, addressed Congress. Now we're going to go through his speech. We're going to play some tape from it. And it was an objectively phenomenal performance. It's almost as if zelensky was an actor or something in a previous life. Whoever wrote his speech, they knew exactly how to weave in the emotion of American history. The diction and the syntax of how to try to motivate a response. So we're going to go through that. We're going to judge it fairly, but it still begs the question of what should we do in response? What is the prudent course of action, and also the argument we've continued to make here, which is do you trust our leaders to be able to do highly complicated tasks when the stakes are so high? Now, some of what zelensky said in his speech, when he was speaking to Congress, was obviously wrapped in hyperbole. However, I'm going to give zelensky a little bit of a hall pass here. Again, I'm no fan of zelensky. I have said before that he's awfully corrupt and has done many things in the past that I disagree with and was probably implemented in an undemocratic way in silence as his political opponents. However, I'm going to give him a pass because when your country is under siege and you engage in some hyperbole, who wouldn't do that in a situation like that. Zelensky says, look, this is a terror that Europe has not seen for 80 years. He says, is it too much to ask for to create a no fly zone over Ukraine to save people? Is this too much to ask? Now, we have not focused a lot on the no fly zone question. Creation of a no fly zone is an act of war. Basically it would be policed by the greatest air force the planet has ever seen in the United States Air Force. And the consequences would be that we will shoot down any Russian jet if it dares fly over
Robert Spalding Reacts to Reports of Russia's Warfare Limitations
"One hour. I'm delighted to welcome back in studio one of my former colleagues in The White House, former Brigadier in the United States Air Force, former senior director for strategy rob. All right. I remembered it well. Brigadier spalding is the author of stealth war. He taught me a great deal about what we need to understand in terms of the global geopolitical threat environment. But let's talk about Russia. Let's talk about the events of the last 16 days in Europe first things first. What did you do in the air force? Tell our millions of listeners, you have the coolest job. As a B two pilot. B two pilot, the stealth bomber, I shared with you a study from the royal United services institute just a few moments ago. When you tell us what is your reaction, your take to the general media reports and then some of the special reporting that not only has the Russian ground force, not performed as expected, there seems to be some very tangible limitations on their air capability. A lot of unclassified analysis has said that they're not used to complicated air operations, usually it's one or two ground attack fighters, not large formations in complex operations. Do you have any comment on those reports? Yeah, I read the report. I don't disagree that when it comes to complex air campaigns, that's not something the Russians are going to be good at. That being said, you know, we have to be careful that we're not mirror imaging the Russians. Explain what that means in terms of intelligence analysis. Well, when we look at warfare, you know, we're going to go for and this is talked about in John warden's 5 rings theory where we talked about don't go after the population that tends to make them angry and if you're trying to get a political outcome, which you want to go after is a political leader. So we tended to move more into precision weapons and really we're trying to get the effects that we want. We want to achieve the outcome that the nation needs.
Natalie Winters: We're Penalized for Sharing the Truth
"But you do find yourself the subject of a tax by the regime who Jen Psaki right now on the screen right now just about 15 minutes ago and the pressure she's still doing proceeded to attack people like you for misinformation This is kind of kind of ironic isn't it Of course you know the national policy of the outlet that I work at We've been banned on Twitter for over a year now And I think yeah you know we're not being thrown in the gulags or Russian state prisons yet but I think it's sort of a prison in its own right in the sense that we're penalized for sharing the truth And again all the reporting that we do at the national polls it's not speculation that's not even opinion These are primary source documents Yes they've been deleted but oftentimes you kind of find the crime and the cover up But these are reputable sources coming from the United States Air Force coming from outlets that other people used to feel comfortable sharing up until a few years back So I really just think it shows you that if it's not about the truth of what you're saying it's about if you either go with or against the
Natalie Winters Uncovers Deleted Pages, Ties U.S. To Ukranian Biolabs
"And you found a number of deleted web pages which seemed to indicate that we do have at least some working relationship with Ukrainian bio labs over in Ukraine Can you tell us what the story said Why you think it matters And I think most importantly why the panic by the left and the media If it's an innocent explanation it's an instrument explanation right I mean why the panic Sure well almost any time that you see the mainstream media working in lockstep with fact checkers to kind of preempt a story from becoming just that a big story You can always tell that that means there's something there There's something to look into So my interest was certainly peak to look into these existence of bio labs particularly bioweapons or at least formerly bioweapons facilities existing in Ukraine So there is an article that was actually cross posted to kind of a quarterly journal that's put out by a counter proliferation center that's under a branch of the United States Air Force but the original article that was posted in this magazine has since been deleted from the outlet that the author first wrote it and so as someone who covered the Wuhan institute of virology and COVID-19 very closely it's always a telltale sign when you start to see a sort of cover up and web pages disappearing that there's something more to look into right Right So this lab it turns out it's based in Odessa And it actually was the efforts of someone you may know a former president actually Barack Obama in tandem with one other senator from Indiana to help get funds specifically U.S. taxpayer funds coming from the Department of Defense To go overseas to Ukraine to help kind of at least they euphemized to say reform a lot of these former Soviet controlled labs that now are still in Ukraine

Or have not read your book yet about what you have done in your life and what your qualifications are because they are many and varied and they're fascinating to me. Try to make forensic pathologist I'm also an attorney. I was coroner of Allegheny County, Pittsburgh and surrounding communities for a total of 20 years in two separate 10 year period. I, uh, you know, chained obtained those two degrees. On while I was doing my residency and also served two years, you know, Captain United States Air Force working as a social anthropologist at Maxwell Air Force Base Hospital since 1962 after I return to Fitchburg, I have been and continue to this very day, literally. Working as a pathologist, doing autopsies for corners and district attorneys and four counties surrounding Allegheny, as well as medical legal consultations for Terry's. Did a couple of autopsies this morning and I'm scheduled for a few already tomorrow, and they issued a couple of consultation reports today and got it encouraged about a two other new cases. Well, this is amazing that you're still doing this and you know, you ask a lot of people and I kind of feel the same way about More than 40 year. Radio career for myself is that people ask you, you know well when he's going to retire, and the answer is retired toe what you're still working. That's that's amazing. You're done, right? You have the right on the head. You know, I I'm not a crazy zealots that I'm gonna work until I drop dead if I had something to turn to if I had started a hobby. You know, one time. It's about my early years and through my teen years and college I was an accomplished violinist. I was concert master of the University of Pittsburgh score stood for four years. Won't I perform I performed on stage is here in Pittsburgh, Carnegie music called and others and I played all the great fun and controllers, I stupidly let that go. And I had three violins and I've told them so we find held onto that I'd have something s O II. Hold on, because I don't know what I would be doing. I'm not a big TV guy. You know, I can't sit around for hours like some people do like to go toe movies. Such a good movie. I'd like to read books. I do a lot of reading. I was reading now. When you called, but I don't know. So I might as well keep working. The other thing is that the work is interesting, and it's challenging while some things get a little bit repetitious, and the cases are different, and sometimes to the unique Is something that comes up that you'd never experienced before. I've done 21,000 autopsies and I have reviews supervised, signed off in about 41,000. Other autopsies. I have Testifying in at least a couple dozen states arm or testified in dozens more federal courts of testified, And I think about a half of those in Florence and that you've testified in some very, very high profile cases as well.

Memoirs of America's most controversial forensics, pathologist. What do you think? Makes you controversial, Cyril? I think it's the cases that make me controversial. And of course, in my stands on some of those cases when you Deal with a famous and infamous controversial case and you come up with financed that are different from what the official version is. Then you immediately become controversial. That's the operation. That's a characterization frequently used in the pejorative sense. That people on the other side curl of you. You're supposed to just fall in line. Well, I am not fall in the morning with JFK or Artist Cave, right? Right. Right. Exactly. Let's on. I want to get to some of those individually. I don't want to give the book away entirely because we want you to be able to sell your book. It's a fascinating story. On and there are fascinating stories contained within But I understand that you were prosecuted twice once in Allegheny County, and you and your lawyers believe these were politically motivated Prosecutions. Can you kind of explain that a little bit? Yeah, sure. And I discussed it in the book in detail. I am I was I was indicted in Allegheny County and then think 79 that continued through into 19. Anyone with the trial that came about as a result of my conducting public open inquest on all police related deaths. The district attorney on the sheriff were very unhappy about that. Because I had that inquisitorial power. I do not have the power to indict. So if we can look for the finding that a police officer should be held responsible. For cases that I dug with one before George Floyd awakened America and to the issue of police brutality and positional asphyxiation, putting somebody down, face down and kneeling on their chest so they can't breathe. I was conducting inquest on them so that the court and that prevailed. It cost me a lot of money and a big effort. But I prevailed. I was completely examined. In fact, By the time the case went to the jury, there's only one charge left out of six. And then in 2006 of the United States attorney was shaking to get democratic scalps. I don't mean to get political here protest the way it was. And this is a matter of records. That and the attorney General Ashcroft and then followed by God is Ali's. They said that if you get political scalps of Democrats around the country, in fact, a couple of prominent Republican U. S attorneys rebelled and said, no way and they were they were even removed from their offices. So the U. S attorney it was interested in getting appointed to the third Circuit Court of Appeals. She had already passed just a local appointment for federal courts, and she brought in 84 felony count Indictment. 84 felony count indictment that went on. And after seven weeks of trial in 2008 on before the trial began, they withdrew 43 of the 84. Then it was 100 jury with without our having put in one witness at all. And then he went up to the third Circuit and the first surface said it had to be handled by a new judge with fresh, unbiased eyes. Their comments. And these were three high judges who worry Probably. You know what they appointed doctor? Doctor Wecht. Just you. You mentioned George Floyd's death. Um, And there was some very controversial evidence presented by a pathologist on the other side of the accepted narrative that he died because the police officer held his knee on his neck for some eight minutes or whatever. But the pathologist also found that the other pathologist found that he had three times the lethal level of fentanyl in his system when he died, which also could have restricted his breathing..

It's a little weird because they're not. It's not like the electors didn't vote for Biden in Pennsylvania. It's that the Republican electors Cast their votes. They cast the votes just in case any legal challenges succeed. That way. It's not like there were no votes that were given. It's up. It's a way of, I guess. Hedging the back.

Interview With Fighter Pilot Rochelle Kimbrell
"I'm joined today by rochelle kimbrell. She was the first african american female fighter pilot in the united states. air force. well that's really cool rachelle. Thank you for being with us today. Absolutely thanks for having me your welcome so now tell us tell us how you cut your start in aviation started aviation. I took my first lesson when i was fourteen years old. I was just very fascinated on by flight. Invite space when i was in kindergarten. I wanted to be an astronaut. And i wrote a way to nasa. Find out what it takes to be an astronaut the on my double lines crayon paper and they sent me back a huge pack. That stayed in my room for most of my most of my life. the just kind of walked us through how you become an astronaut about fourth grade. I realized as i was still learning about it. Because i was fascinated that All astronauts don't get to go to space and that was a little bit Concerning to me. Because i wanted to do something where i would actually get to do it every day so i kind of lucked into the next best thing would be flying jets so reverse engineered my life to figure out how i could do that. So i got my first lesson at fourteen and And had my license. By the time. I was seventeen and just absolutely fell in love with the idea at first but then the actual acts of. Why did you pursue getting and all that before you went to the economy. I did not so being a little bit funds limited. You know. I did what i could so it took me a while to get through the steps. We kind of took lessons when there was money to take lessons. joined the civil air patrol with intentions of Being part of the flying program there that they efforts but ended up kind of falling into the cadet activity side and doing a lot more fit activities than actually fine. And then pursuing my pilot's license on on land. And i assume you seen gliders at dakota me also i did a little bit I didn't do the whole program. I did basically what we were required to do. And then i was focusing a little bit more on the hill. And what What was your major. I ended up with a general engineering. Major okay. I started with but that's where i ended up. Well you started out with. What astro engineering mechanic. Oh okay so now. Did you go right to the training or did you have to do something else before they had a slot for you right.

Interview With Leonard Matlovich
"I'm eric. Marcus and this is making a history in september. Nineteen seventy five. A stunning issue of time magazine. Hit the newsstands. On the cover. Was the photo of a young man wearing his air force uniform. His name tag said lich and the huge headline read. I am a homosexual. I had just started my senior year at hillcrest. High school in queens new york. By then i knew i was gay too but i would have died before admitting to anyone and i sure wouldn't have announced it on a cover of a magazine with millions of readers. I'd like to think. I admired leonard math for his. But it's more likely than i thought he was crazy. I never got to interview leonard. He died by the time. I started work on the original making a history book but studs did. And i'm glad we get to share. Leonard's voice thanks to our work with this radio archive one of the things i love about our history is. How many threads come together at different times. One of those threads was the tireless work of gay rights activists and firebrand. Frank cami frank is featured in his own making gay history episode but his name comes up and plenty of other episodes two and he played a pivotal role in leonard story. Frank had been looking for a test. Court case to challenge the military's ban against gay servicemembers in nineteen seventy five. Leonard stepped up to the plate. The thirty one year old air force tech sergeant declared his homosexuality to his commanding officer and when he was discharged he sued for reinstatement. It was the first case of its kind. And leonard instantly became the public face of a bitter fight for equal treatment of lgbtq servicemembers that continues to this day. Leonard was a picture perfect spokesman. He had an exemplary record was a decorated vietnam vet and taught classes designed to ease racial tensions in the armed forces. He was a patriot a conservative and a believer. He grew up catholic and later became an elder in the mormon church. But before. Leonard became champion for equality he. I had to overcome his homophobia and racism as you'll hear in his conversation with studs terkel which was first broadcast on november fourteenth nineteen seventy five. Just a heads up. Some listeners may find what leonard says about his past racist beliefs to be shocking cases. Obviously to be a member of the one. Of course. we're breaking through something involving what is more macho than the military army in this case the air force and this is of course this. You're right in the heart of heart of machismo. Are you not to say the least. And they want to keep that image. And i think it's a crazy mixed up world. We live in when we're rewarded for killing hating and punished for loving macho image. It's a wrong image. It tends to make people want to kill into murder. So we gotta go back to the beginnings without madam who are you. Where'd you come from. Well i usually tell people that My father spent thirty two years in the air force. So i tell people that i was born in georgia. Raising alaska joined the air force in england. I'm a resident florida virginia. Visiting chicago today. When i say that everything that i am and everything i hope to be out of the united states air force i was born here. Air force base and graduated from air force high school and most of my higher education has been through the air force so it's been military and even the ability to do what i'm doing today to fight the regulations that are considered unconstitutional. I have to that the air force to they gave me the courage because they kept telling me over and over again. And i kept telling the classes i taught and human relations and race relations that anything less than equality injustice is not tolerated in this country. You were of a different political entirely confederate flag. I idolize for many years. it was a symbol of on. I don't have words for a symbol similar to the past and the way things were they should still be necessary. Slavery but the white of the right of white oppression dedicated for barry goldwater door to door handing out literature for him. I oppose a sixty four civil rights act with fervor just went and of course no questions about vietnam war oh absolutely i spent three tours over there just like my country or fight the war for my country for equality. It's strange vietnam. The fight for a yellow man's equality. I hated blacks in this country.
Interview with U.S. Space Force Chief General Raymond
"Welcome to a general raymond. Were so pleased to have you with us. I know you wanted to make a few opening comments. So i'll hand it over to you. Thanks for the opportunity to to chat. We're really excited on. Twenty december of two thousand nineteen the national defense authorization act signed. I've been saying recently that that was. That's our birth certificate. What's interesting if you look at how what was originally planned for the space force the law was gonna be signed and the thought was it would give us like a year to figure things out and then actually started implementing when the law came out. Those is a little different than what what we thought in. It said start now in mmediately. Reshifted the plan if you will in on that day. Sixteen thousand airmen from air force base command were. An civilians were assigned to the united states. Racehorse the i was named as the cheapest based operations And we're off and running in over the last almost a year coming up here just nine. More days will will celebrate her birthday leaving. Really hard at work. If what i call inventing the space use that term very purposely business. This is building a service for a domain. The space domain that strategic environmental shames of that domain has changed and we need to do things differently and so we have all been about starting with a clean sheet of paper and building the service from scratch from the ground up and looking back on a year. first of all. It's hard to believe it's been a year but looking back on that year that if you look at them at incredible amount of progress has been made. It's it's very product we've had a. We have a great team when you stand up. An independent service are thought. Was you have to do kind of five things. I you have to develop your people the second you have to. You have to have your own budget now. Third you have to have your own doctrine fourth. You have to design your force and then fifty have to present those forces to join commander that the us in in our national defense We have made a ton of progress. We have completely reorganized the entire national security. Space enterprise to flatten the bureaucracy and be able to move at speeds and if you look at the space domain that we operated in that's going to be critical because things that's very vast domain and things move very very quickly We have completed all the processes to pick people and bring them. I mentioned that. Sixteen thousand airmen were assigned to to the space force on day one. We are now transferring. Those folks onto the books of the space force and the amount of work that that took was A lot and we now have. We've got i think close to twenty four hundred and we've got another bye bye here over the next few months. We'll have a about sixty four hundred in on the books of the space force as active duty members and then we'll have civilians about ten thousand civilians that will be assigned as well. We wrote the first ever space powers doctrine an independent view of space docking. We've we've developed at chief. Space operations planning guidance published that guidance for the force designed that yet to yet to come we. We submitted the for first time. We've ever done that as an independent service. In the past we were major command of a another service that the united states air force. We have a great partnership with We have strengthened our partnerships partnerships with commercial industry broadening the defense industrial base partnerships with our allies. Which i think is a really a if you're asked me probably what's the most important thing we've done our thing. I'm most proud of. It might be that We have really taken some big strides on that. And then we've also done. Some cultural things like will always becomes newsworthy. The the seals in the flags and logos and uniforms. And you know here in just Let's see days the eleventh in about another week. We're gonna announce what we're going to be called near the name of the sailors soldiers airmen marines and today were were saying space professionals here in another week will unveil our our name which will be good. So we've i'm really proud of the team. We've been driving force down the road if he was in building and Really really proud. The second year and i'll i'll i'll just tease the second year. Then the open enough to offer precautions. The second year is really i was inventing the service. The second is going to be all about integrating the service integrating more with the throughout the department integrating more with the joint force integrating with oliver sister services integrating it more now with our allies and partners integrating more with our commercial industry integrating it more with the intelligence enterprise and oh by the way we've done all that under a global pandemic in haven't missed a beat in providing space capabilities to the world.

Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.

The Danger of Averages
"I want to talk about the danger of averages and to do that I'm GonNa read from a book called the average how we succeed in a world that values sameness by todd. Rose and I will read just A little bit of an expert here are excerpt. Because it's the story is fascinating here. We go in the late nineteen forties the United States. Air Force had a serious problem. It's powder could not keep control of their plans. Although this was the dawn of jet powered aviation and the plans were faster and more complicated to fly. The problems were so frequent and involve so many different aircraft that the air force had an alarming life or death mystery on its hand. It was difficult to be flying. One retired airmen told me you never knew if you're going to end up in the dirt at its worst point. Seventeen pilots crashed in a single day. The government designations for these non-combat mishaps were incidents and accidents. And they ranged from unintended dives and bungled landings to aircraft obliterating fatalities at first the military brass pin the blame on the men in the cockpits citing pilot error as the most common reason in crash reports this judgment certainly seemed reasonable since the plans themselves seldom malfunctioned engineers confirmed this time and again testing the mechanics and electronics of the planes and finding no defects pilots to were baffled. The only thing they knew for sure was at their piloting skills. Were not the cause of the problem if it wasn't human or mechanical error. What was it? After multiple inquiries and with no answers officials turned their attention to the design of the cockpit. Itself BACK IN. Nineteen Twenty Six. When the army was designing its first ever cockpit. Engineers had measured the physical dimensions of hundreds of male pilots. The possibility of female pilots was never a serious consideration and used this data to standardize the dimensions of the cockpit for the next three decades the size and shape of the seat the distance to the pedals and stick the height of the windshield. Even the shape of the flight helmets were all built to conform to the average dimensions of a nineteen twenty six pilot. Now military engineers began to wonder if the pilots had gotten bigger since nineteen twenty six to obtain an updated assessment of pilot dimensions. The Air Force authorized the largest study of pilots that had ever been undertaken in nineteen fifty researchers at right Air Force Base in Ohio measured more than four thousand pilots on one hundred forty dimensions of size including thumb length crotch height and the distance from pilots I to his ear and then calculated the average for each of these dimensions. Everyone believe this improved calculation of the average pilot would lead to a better fitting cockpit and reduce the number of crashes or almost everyone one newly hired twenty-three-year-old scientists had doubts. Lieutenant Gilbert as Daniels was not the kind of person you would normally associate with testosterone drenched culture of aerial combat. He was slender glasses. He lacked flowers and landscaping and in high school was President of the Botanical Garden Club when he joined the Aero Medical Laboratory at Right Air Force Base straight out of College. He had never been in a plane before but it didn't matter as a junior researcher. His job was to measure pilots limbs with a tape measure. It was not the first time gang had measured the human body the aero medical laboratory hard daniels because he had majored in physical anthropology. A field that specialized in the anatomy of humans as an undergraduate at Harvard during the first half of the twentieth century. This field focused heavily on trying to classify the personalities of groups of people according to their average body shapes a practice known as typing for example. Many physical anthropologists believed a short and heavy body was indicative of Mary and fun. Loving personality while receding hairlines and fleshy lips reflected a quote criminal type. Daniels was not interested in typing however instead his undergraduate thesis consisted of a rather plotting comparison of the shape of two hundred fifty male. Harvard students hands the students. Daniels examined were from very similar. Ethnic and socio cultural backgrounds namely widen wealthy but unexpectedly. Their hands were not similar at all even more surprising when Daniels averaged all his data the average hand did not resemble any individuals measurements. There was no such thing as an average hand size quote when I left Harvard. It was clear to me that if you wanted to design something for an individual human being the average was completely useless. Daniels told me so in the Air Force. Put them to work measuring pilots. Daniels harbored a private conviction about averages that rejected almost a century of military design philosophy as he sat in the medical laboratory measuring hands. Legs Way. Sin Foreheads. He kept asking himself. The same question is head. How many pilots really were average? He decided to find out using the size. Data gathered from four thousand sixty three pilots. Daniels calculated the average of the ten physical dimensions believed to be most relevant for design including height chest circumference and sleeve length. These form the dimensions of the average pilot which daniels generously defined as someone who's measurements were within the middle thirty percent of the range of values for each dimension so for example even though the precise average high from the data was five foot nine he defined the height of the quote average pilot as ranging from five seven to five eleven next compared each individual pilot one by one to the average pilot before he crunched numbers that consensus among his fellow. Air Force researchers was at the vast majority of pilots would be within the average range on most dimensions after all. These pilots had already been pre-selected because they appeared to be average-sized. If you were say 6-foot-7 you've never been recruited in the first place. The scientists also expected that a sizable number of pilots would be within the average range on all ten dimensions but even Daniels was stunned when he tabulated the actual number zero out of four thousand sixty three pilots not a single airman fit within the average range on all ten dimensions. One pilot might have a longer than average arm length but shorter average leg length. Another pilot might have a big chest but small hips even more Donna. She dangles discovered that if you picked out just three of the ten dimensions of say Necks Conference Thi- circumference and risks or conference less than three and a half percent of pilots would be average-sized all three dimensions. Daniels findings were clear. And incontrovertible there was no such thing as an average pilot. If you've designed the cockpit to the average pilot you've actually designed it to fit no-one gangs revelation was the kind of big idea that could have ended one era of basic assumptions about individuality and launched a new one. But even the biggest of ideas require the correct interpretation. We like to believe that facts speak for themselves but they most surely do. Not after I'll Dang was not the first person to discover. There was no such thing as an average person. Okay I've stopped reading. That is from again. I mean give the book title. One more time from. Todd rose the end of average and I just wanted to call that I was thinking about averages and thinking about our propensity our desire to want to know what the average is for all kinds of spending line items and we want to know. What's the average spend on hobbies in general? What's the average spend on groceries? What's the average mortgage? What's the average? Pm I property taxes any number of things and I think the danger in that is that you start to think that you need to fit some kind of mythical average in your finances some mythical budget some perfect budget this average. And there's a whole other story in the book about Norma this it's about women's measurements in about how women weren't fitting this ideal and you know this opposed average. It's it's also very fascinating but the idea that you're supposed to hit some average. I think you should just throw it out. I think you should resist the tendency that we all have to kind of say. Well what's what's average? Where DO I fit? Don't worry about being average worry about asking yourself on a regular basis. What you want your money to do for you. And don't look around resist the urge to look around and figure out what kind of average you're supposed to be fitting into. I think people that can buck that that can fight against. It are some of the people that have breakthroughs whether it's in their personal finances or inventions or any number of other things so resist the urge to look for an average in conform. And make your budget your own. Make your categories your own own it. It's yours. Don't look to anyone else to let them say how they think you should do this or that. My guess is if we were to compare and try and find the average buzzer. My guess is we would have a similar result that there is no single person that fits this average of all of our different calculations so with that in mind just You know you're in the cockpit right. The Cock the budget is the cockpit. The cockpits where you where you drive the jet exactly where you need to go and what you need to do and in thinking about it that way this cockpit. This budget is tailored specifically to you. The success of this story to kind of tie it all up is that the military did embrace it and they resisted a lot of pushback from the engineering and manufacturing this. This is impossible. We can't make it but they were saying no fit the system to the individual. Don't try and fit the individual to the system and in doing that. They ushered in a whole me.

AM on WGN TV are gassed Bella Gandhi she is the founder CEO of smart dating academy and she talks about relationships with us every Friday and we're so happy you're here because we learned so many new terms today just to recap a few we knew about ghosting was when someone just sort of like ghosts annual takes off and is no longer communicating with you and suddenly then there's mooning when you just sort of tell every used to be a morning it's not at all what it used to be it means you silence your phone the moon goes up you know that little icon and then you're no longer just a want to deal with that person at that particular time and you said Glenn boozled when you get all ready for a date and then somebody cancels the land until seven the Connie eight is the the most relatable abolish somebody talks about themselves throughout the entire evening or throughout the entire time you're with them not good all not not good and sometimes you know women will complain to me not to pick on guys but I hear from a lot of women that you know I go on these dates in these guys just want to talk about themselves the whole time and so my advice is gently redirect the conversation to yourself like that reminds me of a time where I blah blah blah and then so you brought it back to yourself the end a lot of times what happens is then the guy that and then so anyway like I was saying yeah something like that I mean you see couples where one person does all the talking and that works for some people and then you see a situation where you like okay wait a minute that's not any a little more give and take and allow more be part of this whole conversation or sure got its yes yellow carting is when you call out people for their poor dating behavior would you do that in the middle of meeting somebody would you say is some like that to me that it was all now justly rude and now yeah I'm not you know if the guy you know was flirting with the waitress while you're sitting right there on a date like that's really kind of return fee asks are out I mean it in my world truth the single stuff fiction right that's been yellow carded not just time to get up and leave that's a good is that what you advise people just Hey you know what song Koster song when you're in the middle of this is not going to is to say excuse me I gotta go so I had a client go out on a date with the guy and he seems really normal online and when she got to the date and sat down with him this is a Sunday at five PM date he said Tories like it's great to meet you how about during this state you call me Daddy and I call you sister well right where that's going I was like and then you stand up and then you get a new birth truth is stranger than thank you see and hear everything regarding I everything and only imagine including you see narcissus and you have put together a graphic this is really phenomenal you're gonna tell us about it because you have simple steps on how to spot a narcissist this isn't just when you're on a date though this is probably in your life right work played in a social life whatever important to spot the nurses because tend to be charming people right they can really be charming if you guys want to follow along with this you can go to our sites are dating academy dot com it's a free graphic right there on the home page just download it put your email and you'll have it you can follow along yeah narcissus are typically they can be very charming essentially it's it's kind of a mental illness born out of release low self esteem but narcissus really play like they're the coolest cats on earth they're very dynamic they're very charming they're often trust really well they're often the person that lights up the room and tells great stories and everybody wants to be around right but you don't know the signs to say okay this might just be a cool gregarious awesome person or and this may be a narcissist okay so are you know it's the narcissus what are some of the signs balance well number has a canyon you better would be kind yeah you and you'll know what a narcissist because ultimately they are very selfish right and they may accuse you of being selfish you can give and give and give and they will still call you selfish for a narcissist everything you can give is just not enough mum they're typically it's all take take take and they just want you to give give give never and non so that's the way to identify the really isn't going you can't keep giving you have to at some point realize that's that's not okay yeah working out okay and they're really unfulfilling relationships but the problem when people have had relationships with narcissus you know what they do again they get into a relationship with another narcissist how does that work because you're coping skills become so high you're so accustomed to dealing with someone's stuff and selfish people that you you typically bound right back into relationships with those kinds of people and another sign of being with the narcissist is they have what I call an exaggerated sense of self importance they think they're the bomb they think they should be receiving V. I. P. treatment they don't think they should have to wait in lines they cut people off in traffic they should be treated like royalty even if they're not prince Harry rights needs constant compliments that would be at the tip off there I would think and then zero empathy that's a that's that's a that's a tall that's a huge towel I mean these are if you want to know if somebody's a clinical nurse is you can consult that you note DSM five which talks about mental illness and you need to have seven signs in many different contexts but really zero empathy is a really big indicator that this person is in our system they have no ability to put themselves in your shoes and take cash what must that feel like if I said that right zero empathy is a big check for someone who's potentially in our separate age is another one number six they can have crazy episodes of rage swearing insulting all that kind of thing yeah I suppose anybody could fonts that category at some moment right we've just something gets you angry enough but this is more of a constant like a characteristic more of a constant behavior yeah I mean look if you find out for example your partner is cheating on you you may correctly fly into a rage okay that's okay but if you're raging because somebody left the cap off the mail can you decide it's okay to throw the microwave at divorce in in the kitchen that is that is not okay and nurses this again everything you can do is never enough you will always do the wrong thing and that's why they're prone to fits of rage seven the blame often blame you for things they are doing for example they'll say you're so controlling they're so selfish you're also higher and they're lying to you they're the selfish one so when you know you're with the narcissus for example if you're on a date with someone and they tell you my boss is awful my ex's crazy she's poisoned my kids against me if that person is playing the victim and blaming everybody else for their circumstances I would say that's a red flag right yes it's it's it's you know that's it's something that's a problem for some people when the you're involved with someone like that because as you say initially pull you when they're charming and then boom but I want to ask you something is you can ask questions from all kinds of people in all kinds of things as you pointed out when you see if you see somebody who's involved in a relationship with somebody you dated in the past or you know something bad about them you know they're narcissist you know they've cheated whatever would you advise to go and tell as an axe to go tell the new person about that is that something you would warn a new person or do you stay out of it what would you think in your relationship with the person if the person is your friend which would be weird if they were dating one of your access that's a whole nother topic but if you had a good relationship with this person that was dating the narcissist I would tried it carefully and wait for several months not right away because then they might just think you're jealous or envious but really once for five six months go by have coffee with the person just say has your relationship going and see how there's a good time if that person seems go he now says he gets into these crazy fits of rage you can be like I to which is be wary it's only gonna get worse you told us initially January was the big peak season for dating yeah which seems strange because it's winter time and feels like you know getting out is harder to do but it seems like more and more dating is online and also a high peak season for divorce in January why is that you know if your relationship has been falling apart for years a lot of people you know over the holidays and then new year's comes along and they've made a resolution to never spend holidays with this human pain and can answer resolutions Dr a lot of change behavior a lot of dipping your toe into the dating Paul a lot of research on divorce like I'm done game over yeah it's set I you know it's just a it's it's hard it's tempting because if you see someone falling into a trap that maybe you fell into or you know something about somebody whether you dated them or not that's bad you still think part of you part of me would want to go and then say something but it really can backfire on you can't it is it really can't even in close friendships a can backfire yeah right even with the best of intentions so usually it's just good to be V. empathetic friend who is with this person you can go and listen and at a certain point if you want to give that feed back to the person ask permission this is a really good trick guys that you can do in the Senate track it's a really good way to say something to someone that you want to that doesn't come off as just advice driven or negative to say I give you a can I give you a little feedback around matter could I offer something and if that person says yes they have just literally opened up their mind to being in a receiving energy for what you're going to tell them yeah I like how you phrase that she's got a lot of answers Bella Gandhi smart dating academy

H. C. oils you know what try as you get we'll talk about flowers something like that so yeah I'm a we talked to John Williams was at Sunnyside which is right next to regulate which was insane yesterday or easy hundreds of people we have somebody call us from Andersonville he said there was three four hundred people in line what there were people at new mad that said that they had come from there they drove by there and realized I'm forget that they may be out of supply by the time I get through so they went over the new but what was interesting to is add new bad where I was at all of the people were getting dropped off by purse is like a light of uber's dropping people offer their pot sales which is interesting it's going to generate between four and six hundred million in tax revenue for the state catching could change where is that money go where to go we've got a lot of things we need to pay for in this stage where Stan I be right as well at that with the sports gambling I mean did you just try to open up new avenues for for generate money hi all right in this this state is is so deep in debt and a lot of this is going to be going to those kind of things and you don't have to smoke you could do the edibles you know you got the coming to get the truck we got just about everything yeah I talked to some people you've got the a lot of pros who knew exactly what they want to go in and you could they could tell you exactly the style they wanted and everything like that yet some people in line I talk to are a combat veteran who said that he has never been prescribed prescribed medicinal marijuana before but he's had a hard time sleeping he's got a lot of pain and this gives him an opportunity to go in and buy something and see if I hear that a lot from a lot of people this can help yeah I saw quite a few people or maybe in their sixties in there and you know you got to be kind of careful you go up a lot of people don't want to talk to the media about their marijuana purchases but you know you don't know if these were people who were looking at for pain reasons maybe they were just interested and and using for the first time ever baby they haven't used in decades and want to get back into the game do people wanted mac to that they smoke pot because yesterday said how many people had a beer yesterday and now we went around the show in a few people said yeah I had a beer yesterday how many people went and bought potter smoke pot yesterday no one said anything there's definitely hill taboo even though it's legalized I mean you've got you've got us on to I mean how do you talk about this moving forward because I was always told no drugs right right I mean I took their classes right here to keep kids off drugs I mean that was the thing sure now officer friendly absolutely and now you've got this new conversation that you have to have you know why is it okay for Daddy to sit back and and drink a couple beers while watching the bears game but why would it be an issue you know to to grab some gummies there's something let's say interesting conversation at five years down the road is is going to be completely different than the way we think about it now in the national smoking age she went up to twenty one yesterday right it did now we were already doing that here in Illinois we were already twenty one there were numerous other sending over twenty states that were already there but when you've got states like Wisconsin Indiana that were still at eighteen here's the deal president trump sign this authorized twenty one as the as the new age and the thought was this process would take nine months and then beyond that nine months there was gonna be a ninety day grace period but all the sudden the FDA dropped on its website that it's effective immediately so you've got all of these convenience store owners in a and at Indiana it was got to say wait a minute here this kid who bought ninety is that nineteen year old came in and bought cigarettes last week I can't sell to him anymore process so they're kind of freaking out a little bit and have to turn some people away because they just don't understand what the rules are and how and when they need to comply you don't think about that but they're losing revenue yeah yes they are that was a concern here in one of the reasons got around or didn't want to up to the age here when he was in office was now you're gonna have all these eighteen year old going to Indiana to buy their cigarettes but I mean there's also health factor there too many I mean it's like oh no we don't want to lose the tax revenue because eighteen year olds are gonna be smoking cook county is looking at taxi marijuana sales at three percent on top of that a three percent levy by should I go and possible twenty to thirty percent by the state there's a lot of taxes on the pot pitching kitchen kitchen yeah it's a lot yeah editing by the city you get done by the county and the state we got three different games yet it didn't seem like any of those people were standing in line yesterday were very concerned about the taxes okay so you know and I did talk to people by the way who were in line were from Wisconsin I they told me that they were gonna use here in Illinois but they work as I can tell you are friends with the can ocean county sheriff's department it's pretty much standing at the border right now do you think thank god the July third at the Indiana border with the fireworks right every now you've got all of these police department Deanna I think ocean recede walls of like eight you just you guys know you buy that in Illinois you know these guys come down you know from from were seen going head back up their rules in Wisconsin still apply rules in Indiana

Air Force Football
"Go during your thirteen year now as the head coach at the airforce academy you been denied bowl games he won the commander in chief's trophy four times your recruiting practices are unique in college football because of the realities of being a service academy there are no quick fixes what is the difference for a really good Air Force team in terms of roster make up is it about veteran upper classmen players. I I wish I had that formula. and I have some clients you know and yet you know first and foremost we're going to respect the standard to the United States Air Force Academy enough that's you know the test scores the GPA the conduct its involved as a young person while you're here at the academy and then certainly the the way that you're going to serve if you are able to earn a degree from this school so you know we would be in mourning else just the raw realities we try to make sure that very very clear with a young person and even their parents or their family to distant terms and how hard it is here I mean academically to take eighteen or twenty one semester hours the day you walk in the door to begin basic training that's five and a half weeks were the day yeah when you do arrive were cut all your offer and take your phone and and away we go from that point and in so he and then inevitably hi I'm in all. I really am in terms of. the daily schedule for a student here at the Air Force Academy cadet I should say here at the airforce academy and yet somehow they're still able to to be involved in sports and in a in a really competitive league to step towards astounding. part of the job of knowing what your players are doing in service to the country upon graduation what is that part of the job mean to you in terms of preparing young men and shaping them in the ways that football does well made out also you know that's probably the one thing that is kind of me here you sat down with you look in the eye balls at Kim Jefferson at Woodward academy when he's in high school and lo and behold here years one of the top the one pilots in in the Air Force right now or you know you watch Brady a mac made twenty three tackles and two thousand eleven back at navy in an overtime win and now he's one of the best fighter pilots in all the for Sir tier two and two thousand nine rushes for over a thousand yards and has been just tremendous as an F. sixteen pilot or Travis decker was an outstanding tidy and it the Packer said a look you can play for sad after going through some of those initial many camps and yet he decides to go to Georgetown and is now a doctor in the Air Force that. that's not all bad now that's really cool stuff are a coach seven wins now this season for the mountain west conference against power five opponents after Air Force beat see you from what you have seen so far and preparing for Boise state what is stood out to you about this mountain west conference so far in twenty nineteen you know I really haven't had a chance to see LOC two of them the the one this past week this past Saturday in in the other one obviously the Florida state Boise state game those two we have viewed and viewed pretty extensively. you know he it takes some of the other some small things that kind of have to fall in place a little bit I think you better have very veteran teams because those are probably going to be games are going to be close it's rare that you see you know fifteen or twenty point land so you got to have some guys that have been out there and play a lot of football just situationally that have great awareness and but but it it is it you know it's a and yet you look talent wise you know you look here in recent years she had a good number first rounder high level draft picks you know you think back just fifteen months ago you know the linebacker that goes to balance with the nineteenth pick and the the quarterback that goes to buffalo like with the six pack and in that very same drafters tailback that goes to Seattle like with the twenty seventh. so I mean great great town this lake in a and I think morning else the investment that's made by a handful of schools in the sport of football I think it's obvious at Colorado state that's the case Boise most certainly Utah state and then just the access the talent that's there when it comes to Fresno and seen the state tale non conference is been successful let's get into conference play big one of the Mountain Division Friday night Air Force at Boise state the falcons to win as they get ready to take on number twenty Boise state head coach Troy Calhoun coach congratulations on the early success best of luck this week
An Interview With Airforce One Pilot Col. Mark Tillman
"Know you do a lot of training on the on the backup aircraft. You know is there. Is there any odd training that you can talk about that. You guys had to do with with the airplane or anything like that. That may be a normal seven forty. Seven captain wouldn't have to do that that that's able to be talked about. No we did a lot of simulator training so you'd go oh through the simulator in your primary aircraft every years while as your secondary aircraft so I was in Gaul stream three and seven forty seven pilot my deputy was a seven fifty seven some forty seven so any aircraft the eighty ninth airlift wing had we always had one pile was qualified and in case we needed that capability for the president so but we did a lot of training in the actual aircraft we also we did simulator training but in the actual aircraft we pulled engines back we flew onto engines. We did everything so we knew what was going on with that aircraft. checklists not necessarily memorize but in reality they kind of were as well as emergency procedures everything else so when you simulated emergency for one of the pilots the pilots really had to know basically what the checklist was going to say even though the flight engineer's run on the checklist for you. That's what we'd quiz modest. Ask Them. Hey you know what what do you think the next step is and they'd always tell you yeah. This is the next step. This is my plan and this is what I'm GonNa do because you know what a lot of people don't understand is that you know you air force one. Nothing is ever GONNA go wrong Air Force One because the moment it does your carrion in fourteen press in the back. You've got press all around you so the message of the president that day will be completely shadowed by this is what happened on Air Force One so something as simple as just an electrical glitch. We make sure it never happened so if you're doing anything electrical wise the engineers talking it over with you before he throws switch because all you need is had the president downstairs doing an interview and all of a sudden lights go on and off and then everyone's like I you know what's actually happened to the jet here so you know secondary electrical systems online before you do anything crazy so I can imagine that something like that you know in inadvertent deployment deployment of oxygen masks in the cabin would probably not a good day. Yeah I mean that is we. There's there's is to engineers secondary engineers always back in the primary up so something simple as opening the door an open the passenger door the war you know double check in to make sure that the slide is an armed or whatever you know and just crazy stuff like that just double check and each other so it it they ever had like an accidental inflation of the slide they may have they may have back in the Clinton administration but it was it was purely accidental and and it you know it was just one of those things where people think you know that when the slide deploys you can hold shut the door. That's not gonNA happen so it was it was on the news so I'm not telling on any secrets. It was on the news but you know president. Clinton was a great man he literally you know it was like whoa not this door and we brought them to number. Two just without show truck comes up to the second door. Not The prime doing left so I would imagine just little little things like that. probably have a ripple effect. I mean because using a different door on an airplane seems small when you have you know secret service and media and everything I mean that probably causes. There's a ripple effect. I would assume that I definitely I mean it's an orchestrated event every movement of that aircraft so when we go to a new airport we send in our every time we go to an airport will send in two or three advance agents. They run a two three hundred question checklist to make sure that everything is has been set so it's I mean heck. We brought the plane here. The seven forty seven back in July of two thousand thousand four the challenge for us was we couldn't go down any of your taxiways because you didn't have a tug for us so we had to turn the plane around on the runway. We need like a hundred and fifty seven hundred and fifty eight feet to do a turnaround your runways one hundred fifty so we had the knows we'll go through the end taxiway so we we had we had people out there market so I could have an actual assessment of how I'm doing in the turn and I had to get far enough down the runway. Turn and just bring in the plane back around and let us sit on your way so President Bush went ahead met with the local folks here in Oshkosh and then then he came back to the plane so we tied up runway for a couple of hours hours. That is absolutely remarkable. I when you're talking about going to an airport you've never been for you. If you're sending out agents in advance dance team would you as aircrew ever pre visit that airport just to make sure you understood the the Leyland. Just I can only imagine for me as a as a private pilot Alexa travel around I going to an unfamiliar airport is you know he's a thing on my checklist of stuff to be very a little bit the extra aware of and and thinking ahead to him. I GonNa Park things like this somehow. I have a feeling that the laming Air Force One someplace you've never been and then saying you know you know. Can we get a progressive taxi taxi instructions Adam sorry. Did you say it. Was that left on Bravo. Yeah that doesn't happen. It's kind of a thing where when you before you go into the airport. The advanced team has already given you a document that shows if you take taxiway kilo off the runway going to make a right on kilo a right on Delta Okay and you follow yourself in and it's not it's not one of these things where all of a sudden as you're taxiing the tower goes you know now go echo foxtrot auto pull off the runway contact ground now and then hey ground is air force one said Roger Air Force One you know welcome to whatever it's not air force one taxiway Delta Echo short so that one fifty that doesn't seem to happen. We seem to own near its. That's gotta put There's obviously there's gotta be something maybe satisfying isn't the right where the sort of comforting comforting of just knowing that you're obviously you're taking your role extraordinarily seriously but probably about a seriously as as it gets you've got got you know you've got important passenger important important people on board the airplane. There's gotta be nice to know that that call sign carries that weight of saying okay. This is Air Force One. You know you're not gonNA. They're not gonNA send you over here to the far end of the airport. You hold well six other airplanes. Go in front of you. All this sort of thing visit got the the the pressure must be remarkable as well of knowing the everybody's watching and everybody's listening and everybody's paying attention the definitely I mean they ah the air force won't call sign immediately. Has Everybody watching you when you land at an airport if you've got a group airliners that have been waiting number one while you're coming into land and there's ten none of them. Every one of them is pretty you know. They're happy to see the plane but they're also upset by the fact that they've been delayed. The big joke always was for us Sir we took it extremely serious not to delay anybody but like landing in Atlanta couple times some of the airline pilots instead of being on the PA it actually still be on the radio announcer their pastors over the radio you know if you look to your left there's Air Force One and that's the reason why you're being delayed. That's why your money and all that stuff and then the tower would come up and go. Hey that was a tremendous speech and you just gave it to everybody here at the airport. It's kind of funny stuff but you can you can understand it says their frustration but for us it's it was truly an honor and everywhere we went day was neat to have the air traffic controllers controller's. There were right there with Air Force One you know it's an honor to be with you and it's an honor for them to control us and we look at it that way as well because it it is not easy to control us. I mean we have to land to the second and while we're coming in at you I mean we typically do eight four mock everywhere. We're going and nothing nothin' says. you know we're in trouble. When we leave Washington? We're heading no o'hare and we're doing eight mock as we're truck and across sometimes nine Oh mock trying to get the president of back on time and the bow wave a moving airliners out of the way for us is is a credibly difficult job for the air traffic controllers but Sir they make it happen and they do an amazing job force now. It's incredible. I you know the one thing I wanted to ask you your time but how you basically when I basically do work for the president Can you explain he'd say Gel pretty well. Did you get the no the President Senate or House that Hell is that relationship. I guess on a day to day basis. Let you know how does that. How does that all work? You know the president is got a lot of people underneath them. In the the commander of Air Force One technically is reports of the United States Air Force as well as the White House military office but he works directly and assigned to the president so so the face of the crew is normally the president's head flight attendant that we have so that that's who the president deals with the majority of as a pilot normally deal with the president's chief of staff or maybe deputy chief of staff or a lot of times you deal with the Millay to the president Let's kind of face for the president but if the president needs something he you President Clinton President Bush they had no hesitation to come to the cockpit you know and Tillman we need this or whatever and it's a and you just make it happen. I mean it's truly an honor honor to support them and it's pretty easy to make. All you know what they want to have happen happen. 'cause I mean they're. They're not asking for crazy stuff. They're just asking for the ability to get to the locational occasional.

The program is also a path to economic mobility in the first few years every student who completed the program was hired in the local schools. This program, demonstrates a synergistic dual nature of economic mobility native people, academics, expresses important equally important as to strengthen our community in Peshawar culture, is twin missions, individual and community are inseparable. We cannot fail it either without putting the other at risk. A more obvious contribution to the economic mobility as availability of jobs through a multi year partnership with the department of energy tribes industries sailors, couldn't college and four other TCU's as are establishing advance engineering skills to operate digital manufacturing equipment. Salish college partnered with Northrop Grumman the United States Air Force sale. Essen K technologies. And the college to a mentor protege program to help us create the workforce and develop economic opportunities through that program. As new jobs, created the tribal colleges educate students to fill those positions. One of the ways we've created job creation, is that we need a pipeline of skilled workers because our high school dropout rates are too high and many students, where enrolling S K C unprepared for college stem courses, we developed dual credit at that wasn't enough. So we recently opened a stem academy for high school, juniors and seniors students take classes at their own high school in the morning, come to sailors college in the afternoon to complete their science and math courses. And then they are ready to enter stem programs and have doorways open for opportunities that they might not have had before the academy is already in second era of existence, demonstrating success Thurs strategy, is like this tribal colleges are transforming Nate. Of America an Indian country. One student at a time. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you, all for helping us by by being within the time limits. We appreciate it house. Subcommittee chair Susan Davis democrat from California. WCS PFM Washington if I could under committee rule, I'm gonna move now to questioning of witnesses under our five minute rule. And I will be followed by the ranking member, and then we'll alternate between the parties. If I could start with you, Dr VO home. You spent more than two decades working with tribal communities and. In higher education in Montana. And in my home, safe of California, and I know that, that includes working with adults who were trying to finish their GED and with rebound programs to improve college access. So I wonder if you could just share with us a little more really on a personal level. How your experience working in different facets of higher education, and in different tribal communities, influenced your approach to your rose presidents, sailors, Kuni college. What, what really mattered? Thank you. Madam chair what really matters is opportunity and assisting students to believe that they can, in fact accomplish anything that they set their minds to accomplish what we know is that having a various, and we know this through recent research and studies tribally we've known it for a long time, but only recently have have there been has there been research done in the area. But we know that south efficacy is an is a key piece in whether students will be successful more than GPA's more than. High school. Graduation, our predictive tests of entrance exams. If the student is committed and believes that they can accomplish their goal with support. They can we also know that a strong sense of who you are. And in our case that's around your tribal. Identity is also key to having students be successful in college in high school and in the workforce. So we know that that base connection to your culture at whatever level that is language dance song. Skilled. That is it creates what called predictive. Resilience the and protective factors that help students to navigate through difficult times. And you and does that come from individuals from teachers professors, etc? Or are there actually community members who helped contribute to that as well? It comes from all of those things. Yeah, thank you very much. Dr my hat. Canton. As we know universities are cultural hubs, and they are centers for the community as well as well. And people people want to be there. They want to experience the university in the community setting. I certainly. No, that's true for CS us, and I'm wondering how the university of Texas, we around valley insures, the local community is included in campus efforts to identify and address, local leads including demand for an educated workforce. How, how do they find their way to really having a meaningful impact on that process? Thank you so much. We have a variety of initiatives in which we strive to bring our community into our environment. One of the things that we've done is, we've tried to change the environment. So it becomes a family friendly environment, and that means that our families feel comfortable coming onto our campus spending time and engaging.
The 14-Year Active Duty Veteran Turned Epic Fantasy Writer
"Active that the United States Air Force. And and thank you so much for your service and the work that you've provided for us. It's it's wonderful to have you with us. You've been serving under the air force special special operations command and then new. Got your degree. At the Korean class at the defense language institute. Foreign language center in Monterey. Earning the Korean consul-generals award for excellence. And you did something that is highly unusual. You were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as well as several countries in Africa. And tell us what you did when you were in Africa with tablet, please. Absolutely. So one thing that not a lot of people might really realize about deployments is that once you're done doing the actual work that you're needed that you're needed for sometimes you actually have have downtime, and there's not a whole lot of options when you're in especially, you know, countries like in in the horn of Africa, where I was where your your internet and TV options are actually pretty limited. So one thing that I started doing to to pass the time was grown up reading a lot of fantasy CS Lewis Jared Tolkien stuff like that. So I thought to myself, you know, maybe a good use of my time would be if I were to start writing a fantasy novel much like, you know, some my heroes who actually both of those off authors that I mentioned just now also were fought in World War One. So you know, what I'm doing isn't necessarily new. It's just part of a new generation of writing while deployed. So you wrote you wrote a book. On a tablet. While I did while being deploy how long did it take you to write the book and tell us about the book, and where it is today and. Absolutely. So it's called gift of the shaper. And it's actually my first Mike first attempt at at at at a book. And it took me I'd say just about two years to to write the whole thing then that coming up with the completed manuscript going through editing making small changes to the plot. But ninety five percent of the book was just like you mentioned written on my on my tablet on the touch screen. No last night, even, you know, a detachable keyboard or something because that was just the the tool that I had at my disposal when I was deployed and after a while I just got used to using the touchscreen so much that I it didn't even occur to me to use. My. You know, my my laptop or something to to start writing. But yeah. So it's called gift to the shaper. And it's it's a an epic fantasy. So, you know, you're thinking like game of thrones that kind of stuff, and it's about a young man who finds himself dragged into a war between two sides. A now one side wants to free their God who's called the breaker of the dawn and another side wants to keep him imprisoned. And they're led by their goddess called the shaper of ages, which I actually derived the name of the book from a gift of the shaper, which was basically the shaper, you know, giving giving her power to some of her followers. So that's kinda how I came up with the name and the book is getting rave reviews. So good for you. Now. Thank you. I appreciate that. Tell me a little bit about what's life? Like now that the book is done and. You're back here in the states. Yeah. So I actually it turns out that writing is something that I I really enjoy. I'm very passionate about it. It took me thirty odd years to figure that out. But once I did I actually found that it was something that I was good at. But it was something that I really enjoyed doing. So when I got home, I decided, you know, what I I have this first book that I've written and like you said it gotten good reviews from people they actually really enjoy the book.

Well, good evening. And thank you very much. I like, sir. I'm sixty five years old the United States Air Force veterans served during the Vietnam conflict. I appreciate your common sense straightforward approach. I thank you for everything you do without you. There are times that you know, the the worst side of me might come out, but it doesn't and I think that you bring a lot of people down to earth. Use you show me you show me some gratitude in your motion. And I connect with that. I have. Numerous friends that understand my thinking, and we're calm and collected. However, we are prepared and user u instill. Some calm and all of this. I found and I. I continue to live that way. And I I just enjoy your approach to certain things. It makes me think. It keeps us all aware. You're your technician, sir. And I looked at your picture, and I had to say sound anything like you look. Okay. So let me just say this. The reason why I do this for people like you Billy who fought people like you who fought for cherished freedoms constitution decided to me far more courageous and far more brave than I could ever be got up and did something for our country. And I'm doing my best to make up for all that lost time. And to give you my best. Because of what you've done for me. And as I said many times if you don't get a not in your throat when you talk with somebody who's fought and has been there and has done that. You're not a true American. You're not a patriot. You're not someone who I wanna talk to. I'm I certainly I'm grateful for you Billy for what you said about me. But let me just tell you this. Thank you so much for what you've done for me. And what you've done for this country. I appreciate quite. And I I take that was since the server to. We all lost the we've all lost people. You know, something I've learned to live. My dad told me that she was a marine. You know, you stated to me that. We're all gonna come and go it's just a little bit that little niche that little speck that we can apply ourselves and try and help one person every day. I don't mean going out and giving them money. I don't mean that. I mean, help them emotionally helps them look them in the eye until them saying to you for being alive show their appreciation, let them know that there needed. Let them all know that they have a place on this planet because. There isn't there isn't anything else that we can do but be good people to each other. And there's a little bit lacking on this country for that. That that older lady you had on last night ninety year old. I. About lost it she set it off. And I there's no way upstage with that young lady. Ninety years old had to say, you know, people need to just quit fighting amongst each other. This is America Philly. All Americans have good people who listen to my program. I know that I have the most intelligent listeners out there. I have the most fair and open listeners out there. I have people who are liberal or conservative hire people who democrat and Republican. I have people who are Americans that understand how this game is being played. There are a few that get in every once in a while they want to thwart inflex their muscles and be angry. But the truth is is we have a bigger enemy that we're fighting against and that's an ideological change. It certainly is going to have America suffer in the future. If we don't honor what you have fought for if we don't honor what our forefathers fought for and how they forged the constitution. And how they forged a guide for us in order to remain a sovereign country a country that loves one another as United in. 'cause we. May be divided in ninety ideologies in intellect, but we certainly should be United in one cause and that's fighting against an enemy that is there to destroy and topple everything that we've fought for. Yes, sir. We are located like this. But straight and simple. We are the screw. King Arthur's though this planet, and if we don't respect one another and start paying attention to everything that's going on in this world on this planet. It's it will not be the same type of living that I experienced when I was a young man, they won't be comforting thing that we all have when we come home mom has this the it's not it's not that people are so yield each other. It says the generations have been misconstrued not thought correct history in the way that this country has developed and maintained its sovereignty and been good to other countries. Most likely at the time did not deserve it. And some countries still do not deserve our compromising ways and believe, and I truly believe this that our president Donald J Trump is trying to. Awake and the planet, and I feel with our supports your support, your integrity your knowledge. Your common sense is a very nice platform for us all to basically live by CLYDE. I really do man. Well, you said that all of us are king Arthur's. If that's the case, we all need to take the opportunity to pull the sword from the stone, and we need to protect it and keep it near us. And at times, we may have to use it for Justice, and this needs to be served in a lot of ways, but we need to protect our families, and we need to protect the very things that make us Americans. And it seems that many people are not into that anymore. It's not fashionable anymore, and that's sad. Because I think being Americans has always I mean, we're the last generation Billy to actually uphold these values, and it seems that these values are being lost on the young while we need to teach those values to the young we need to keep the history.
