Britain Battles Omicron 'Tidal Wave,'
"On a crime Boris Johnson. I'll play an audio at the bottom of the hour. He says there's a tidal wave of a crime coming. And as a result, Brits have lined up around the block. Now Boris is in deep, deep, deep political trouble with more parties and more scandals and more video coming out over the weekend and members of the Conservative Party are looking at each other and thinking I'm going to toss him from the bus before. We get toss from the bus in the next election. I don't know about that, but Boris Johnson went on the air over the weekend and said, tidal wave of a crime coming, we need boosters. That's largely because an Israeli study has found that two Pfizer shots, the standard vaccine, which worked against the original COVID and delta, don't neutralize a crime, but the booster is very effective. What that means is simply that most boosters like most vaccines, efficacy, wears off over time. The efficacy of the mRNA vaccine appears to wear off fairly quickly in 6 months. So you do need a booster if you want to avoid a serious case of COVID on a variety. And so go get a booster and that's in Great Britain they get it. They've seen it. I've got the national health service, right? And it's not the world's greatest way to get medicine to people. They love it. I'm not saying it's got to work for Brits who wouldn't work in the United States. We did not do it that way here. But Brett's used to loosen the NH. And so they're lined up around the block to get the booster and they've run out of boosters and now people have to reschedule and the scheduling app fell apart over the weekend. But in the United States, that will be behind Great Britain and moves from east to west that's doing the same thing right now. The delta surge is now moved from the upper from the east to the upper Midwest and out west. About 1200 Americans are dying every day from COVID or COVID related disease. Two thirds of the United States companies are demanding their employees get it. That is, by the way, legal. You don't have to work for anyone, but company get the set health

Climate Change, Bad Luck Behind MN's Smoky Summer
"Wildfire smoke is in our lungs and in the news this summer. And it's literally off the charts on minnesota's air quality monitors and inside that smoky haze fingerprints of climate change enhanced. Wildfires data from climate central shows. The number of large wildfires out west has tripled since nineteen seventy and the number of air quality. Alerts in minnesota is rising in tandem with these bigger more intense wildfires. matt carlson tracks. That smoke. he's a meteorologist with the risk evaluation and air modeling unit at the minnesota pollution control agency. I'm at welcome to climate cast. Thank you for having me. Let's start with the air quality records this summer. How high did particular readings peak last week. Our highest that we had on record was a daily average of two hundred eight Micrograms and that is an all time record By almost twofold for an entire twenty four hour period and these types of concentrations are something that is you know typically seen mountains in the west where smokers trapped so very unusual to see this type of readings in the upper midwest. And tell me if. I'm right about this. I thought i saw that. Saint cloud had a reading of four hundred twenty two micrograms. Cubic meter last thursday Isn't the top of the very unhealthy category of the air quality chart at three hundred. So that was literally off the charts. It was yes. I think i was looking at the numbers and these wildfire. Smoke driven air quality alerts. Haven't they doubled in the last several years and so we have just completed. Our eighth air quality alerts the season. And yes that's a record for us and that's three more than we have ever issued. The trend has definitely been increasing so the climate change connection with wildfires in the western. Us and canada is pretty clear. Now the amount of acreage and the number of large fires is going way up and minnesota of course sits down wind from most of these fires. Is that a simple way to look at our changing summer. Air quality here changes definitely set the primer for this these kind of long duration droughts mixed with periods of very heavy rain so that that's kinda the conditions we're looking at but in this particular season. What's been unusual. We've had cold fronts comes through multiple times now with no precipitation and that's not so much. Climate changes that is just unlucky weather for us the past couple of years. We've had the fires in canada but the cold fronts that have come through the area had enough moisture available to them to produce rainfall washed off the particular matter so it's it's kind of a combination both of climate change but also the local meteorology has been going on this summer has has definitely made the situation worse. Yeah and we've seen these dry fronts coming through this year in spades looking at the models. Hopefully it looks like we may get some rain and some of the fire areas in canada might get some rain in the next week or two the wildfire trends show no sign of pulling back in the west. What can we expect in the years ahead for minnesota if these wildfire trends continue. So what we've seen this year could very well be what we're going to start seeing in the future. There has to be a couple of things that will happen one. Obviously we have to have a busy wildfire season. That's not a given but something that we would expect more of a changing climate but then on top of that we have to have the meteorology that one allows that smoke to be transported into minnesota and to allows that smoke to get down to the ground. And so it's hard to say we're gonna see these really extreme air. Quality is on the go with a busier fire season. But it's definitely something that if we have more fires in the areas we'll definitely continue to have

COVID-19 Spreading 'Like Wildfire' in Michigan
"Spreading like wildfire. It's breaking their hearts were exhausted. Emotionally hospital admissions jumping nearly 30% in the upper Midwest. In just the past week, the CDC ranking Michigan the number one hot spot in the country and hospitals feeling the strain some patients facing 8 to 10 hour wait times those hospitalized, shifting away from now vaccinated older Americans to those unvaccinated younger adults. Now we're seeing that kind of 40 to 59 age group is the largest group that's getting infected. Certainly certainly seeing some Children. They're getting l. But it's really that young adult population that's driving a lot of the cases. So for us this surge is bigger than it was a year ago, doctors say, driving the surge, a mix of reduced restrictions, pandemic fatigue and the UK variant, which now accounts for 70% of the new cases in Michigan. The federal government now sending Michigan more personnel to administer vaccines. The governor Gretchen Whitmer, doubling down that our state needs more shots when there is a surge. We think that it's important that we we go toe we rush in to meet where that need is across the country. The supply of Johnson and Johnson
Expect low ice years on Lake Superior to continue
"Little to no ice floating along marquette bay noah reported january's total ice coverage in the great lakes to be the lowest in the last forty eight years lake superior. Ice cover briefly grew to fifty percent during our february arctic outbreak but that fleeting is vanished just as quickly with our mild march. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul hutton. And today on climate cast. What are longer term lake superior ice trends telling us about climate change in the upper midwest professor j austin researchers all things lake superior with the large lakes observatory at the university of minnesota duluth high. Welcome back to climate cast. Thanks for having me on paul. Let's start with this past winter. What was notable with ice cover on lake superior It was a really unusual year very low ice covered starch and we had that remarkable cold air in february and we ended up with fleetingly above average ice levels superior and just as remarkably. They went away really quickly. And how does this fit with the longer term ice trends that you're seeing on lake superior and the great lakes. I expect that we're going to see Significantly lower than average ice cover this year and basically since about nineteen ninety eight. We've had a long string of relatively low ice cover on lake superior with some exceptions like like the polar vortex in twenty fourteen where we had nearly complete coverage for two months.
WHO, CDC warn of troubling COVID numbers
"At home and abroad health officials are warning of cope with nineteen numbers going in the wrong direction the World Health Organization says confirmed cases have gone up in five straight weeks by twelve percent the last week in Europe alone Kobe debts had dropped in six straight but Maria van Kerkhove says they're up slightly in the past week this is also a worrying sign in Atlanta CDC cheaper show Polanski says deaths continue dropping in the U. S. but the rate of decline of death a slow she says areas like the northeast and upper Midwest are seeing a significant rise in new cases taken together she calls it a warning sign for the American people I am worried that if we don't take the right actions now we will have another avoidable search just as we're seeing in Europe right now Sager made Connie Washington
This newspaper chain pivoted to digital subscriptions, and it's working
"The last fifteen years not been kind to the local news industry with thousands of newspapers either reducing staff or closing down entirely but not all newspapers have been affected equally and some of the hardest hit chains were owned by hedge funds and private equity firms that had no actual interest in investing in journalism. Family owned newspaper. Seemed to have fared better. And that seems to be the case for form. Communications a chain of newspapers and other media outlets situated in the mid west a few years ago. The company's newspapers rolled out a digital subscription model and so far it seems to be performing above expectations. I recently interviewed stephanie. Shorter forums chief digital marketing officer about the gargantuan amount of work that went into this pivot and what strategies resulted in the most success before we jump into the view. I wanna talk about a recent article published on my newsletter. I went deep on the company called blocks group. It started out. As a cryptocurrency events company before launching a thriving podcast network that generates millions of dollars in revenue both founders walk me through how grew the business and their plans to build a crypto focus news organization. There's only one way to read analysis like this and it's by subscribing to my substance newsletter. Go to simon's dot sub stack dot com that simon owen stott sub stacked dot com or. Just google the word. Simon owens and newsletter. Okay onto my interview with stephanie. Hey stephanie thanks for joining us. Yeah thanks so much for having me simon. So you work for immediate chain called forum communications Tell me a little bit about that. Like where is it. What kind of media properties doesn't own. And how long has it been around cell phone. Communications is a family owned media company. We've been around since eighteen seventy eight Were actually located in the upper midwest. So we have properties in north dakota south dakota wisconsin and minnesota Our headquarters is in fargo. North dakota And we have twenty plus print and digital news brands all throughout the midwest as some broadcast and commercial print divisions as well and that's completely family owned as opposed to you know somebody's larger chains that are owned by private equity like this is like a longtime family owned newspaper oil. It's not just newspapers but mainly a newspaper chain. That's exactly right. It's a sixth generation family on media company. So it's been owned or operated by family all throughout its ownership so you were brought in as its first chief digital marketing officer correct like why did they build that role for you. Yeah that's correct so a while. Back a bunch of executives were sitting around a table and really talking about what the future of the company looked like and They knew that they needed to create a digital subscription model. But they weren't exactly sure where to begin and so brought in a consultant who used to work at the new york times and she came in and started to give some advice and she said well first off Where's your marketing department. And they all sort of looked around the room at each other and they said well we don't have one and she's like well that's step one so They followed her advice and they posted a role for chief digital marketing officer. And that's gonna wear my role came to be. And what was your background like you. Didn't you didn't work newspapers before. Did you know this was completely new for me. So i previously worked in the healthcare benefits space. But i was in marketing. Their i was. Vp of marketing for local healthcare benefits company and Really just took a leap of faith after meeting with the the people at the form. Communications office And really loved what i heard about what they wanted to do. And decided to really switch gears with my career and it was really great decision and and basically kind of you know the even though you weren't in media this was about like kind of product tising and and selling something directly to consumers so it's sort of like fit within. Still within your purview. Of of what you knew about right exactly so my previous role Prior to coming to form communications was all about selling a product to consumers and so This really isn't all that different. The the product has changed And what i really like about it. Is i find it a little bit more mission driven a little bit more purposeful and can really get behind the the why of what we're doing and Yeah that's always really appealed to me. Tell me about your first few months in the role. How did you get the lay of the land and begin building strategy for the expansion into the digital subscriptions so i would say the first few months was really like drinking out of a firehose as they say it was being thrown into a lot of new things that i didn't know a whole lot about And so i was really guided by. Just what i did know to be true. Which is everything about how to market something to consumers and the the biggest challenge there is we had previously been giving our content away for free online and now we were heading to this model where we weren't going to be doing that anymore. And so the biggest thing to figure out was how can you move from giving away your content for free to starting to ask people to pay for that content and we decided that the biggest the biggest strategy there is. We need to invest in content. And we need to invest in our products. And so that's what we did. And media's is kind of like a really weird industry that's not like a lot of other industries in the sense that like the people who are building the cord core product. Which is the editorial or kind of weirdly separated from the business side in different ways and they're all kinds of different ethics rules in different stuff like that like. Did you feel like you need to educated on like how media company works as opposed to like pure consumer products company. I did there. There was a little bit a friction at i. Just you know with some of the decisions that you have to make about for instance what you put behind the pay wall. No one when there's an extreme community safety story how do you handle that. From an ethical standpoint you want people to be able to access that kind of content and so a big part of the early days. My role was sitting down with people in the newsroom. Inter division and just understanding how they operate and what decisions they have to make and then how does the pay wall change any of that if if it does so. What are some of the major hurdles that a legacy newspaper chain has to consider that a like a brand new digital site. Like my the one that i run like doesn't have to think about like you had to figure out how to take these princip scrubbers in these legacy systems and and combine them with a paywall which is from a logistical standpoint. That's pretty difficult to do right. It is quite difficult in fact I would say the most challenging piece of all was just the technology component of everything so we had like you said legacy systems and then we needed to integrate that with all of these other systems that were newer so that the email platform the paywall platform obviously and so many other pieces and when we were grappling with all of that we actually secured help from another consultant. Who used to work at nasa. He's really bright. Guy really has a good hand on technology and he helped us draw out. This integration map. And he's drawing all these lines from one platform to another and it just looks like this giant messy web on a sheet of paper and he looks up at all of us and he says this is complicated and you know if the guy from nasa complicated it's complicated and so that was by far the most challenging part and it's never ending. I mean every time we had a new system integration and that's the part that really a keeps us up at night sometimes and did you have to overhaul the whole website or was there just like a way to just put some key. Take some kind of membership or subscription platform and just put it over the website. I wouldn't say we had to overhaul the website but we made the decision that we wanted to because again we were going from this state of giving away our content for free to suddenly asking people to pay for a product that we weren't previously asking them to pay for and so we wanted to make sure that we are improving that product and improving the discover ability of the content. That people wanted And so we decided to before even beginning to implement the paywall. Create a plan for redesigning all of our network of news sites that sort of step one and then from there. We felt good about launching that paywall on top of them and so prior to launching. I'm guessing that you were kind of projecting convey conversion rates like how. How quickly did you hope to acquire new digital subscribers to where it would make up a significant part of your business at least prior to launching. We really didn't know what exactly to expect. you know. we had talked to others in the space and they they had shared stories of pretty decent growth in the first few months but pretty low expectations overall. Just as you grapple with all the challenges of implementing a new model like this and so we just sort of set an arbitrary goal of ten thousand digital subscribers in the first year It wasn't really super scientific. We just felt like that seemed like a reasonable goal for our entire network of sites and then we wound up tripling that in the first year and so we who either really underestimated our goal or we really Did surprisingly well for what we set out to do. But i'm gonna hope it's the second one. Yeah so ten thousand subscribers across twenty different newspapers Seems like a reasonable goal. That you

A record year for wind turbine shipments through Duluth
"Record year for wind. Turbine shipments in duluth. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul kutner with climate cavs. Here's a story about climate change solutions and economic prosperity. Twenty twenty was a record year. for winter. shipments through duluth harbor ships carried more than half a million tons of wind blades and towers into the harbor this year that means jobs for port workers in duluth for truckers who drive the giant blades across minnesota and for wind energy technicians building the giant swirling turbans on the prairie pater mavis is the western regional policy manager for the clean grid alliance. Hi peter welcome to climate cast. Paul what are the big wind. Power projects underway now. And what's coming in the next few years so The last couple of years have been very good for development. Economics is the driver here and utilities. Want the stuff commercial industrial customers. Want this stuff. And saint received very robust construction in north dakota south dakota minnesota in iowa currently there's about thirty seven hundred megawatts of projects under construction in these four states. And that's you know you're you're looking at over a thousand turbans just to fulfill that full of projects talked to us about jobs. What are the trend. Lines for employment in clean energy in the upper midwest. Well as we see more projects come online. There's a lot more for operation and maintenance. Jobs is actually somewhat of a deficit. And it's very difficult to find people affiliates positions and so a lot of universities other tech schools in the companies are doing things they can to try and get more people into this field and these are good well paying middle class jobs and i think the most important piece in that all set for rural jobs. And it's oftentimes. It's very difficult to find jobs in the rural parts of our state since so. This is an excellent addition to the row community. I know there are now some days where minnesota has enough generating capacity from win to produce a hundred percent of electricity from wind and solar. What are the trends like there. Well if you look at the region as a whole Minnesota and the upper midwest as part of the independent system operator which fifteen state organization that manages the ball transmission system and it creates efficiencies. So that you can move power across the entire central part of Country and you know because of the wind resources. So good in. North dakota south dakota iowa we could use just a ton of wind and move that you know states and to other states in the region that don't have as much visibility of when peter. What's the state of battery storage technology for wind and solar. How quickly as that technology advancing on its advancing quite rapidly. Great river energy just announced as part of their portfolio changed very large battery storage system in minnesota. There's gonna be some time before we can really scale up battery storage. In addition to the price point that can make it attractive for utilities. How fast has clean energy progressed in minnesota in the upper midwest. And what's the future. Look like well. If you think about a decade ago wind energy was just really kind of getting off the ground and states. Were starting to take initiatives to move that direction if you look now. I mean state of iowa. Forty percent of all their generation comes from win minnesota's at about nineteen percent self dakota's at twenty four four percent. North dakota generates about twenty seven percent. So we've seen very robust growth. We expect that to continue.

Coronavirus surge has caused hospitals in rural America to reach full capacity
"Officials in rural America are struggling under the weight of the Corona virus pandemic in the upper Midwest and Rocky Mountain states. They warned that hospitals are at or nearing capacity. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports. Here's how things look in Rural America to Dr Andrew Pervy ahead of infectious diseases at the University of Utah Hospital, So the situation really has to be described his dire, especially in the northern Rockies and upper Midwest states that weren't hit that hard when the Corona virus raged in American cities last spring. Via traces the current crisis to colleges and schools here opening back up, as did sports and most extracurricular activities and states. Seeing the most new cases like Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota have generally not good, many restrictions in place. Nor is there much enforcement on large gatherings because of the local politics. They're probably not As drastic as firm measures is, we really needed to turn the tide? So I think that situation in 2 to 4 weeks is going to be groom. Hospitalizations usually go up two weeks after a spike in cases deaths a month later. Hospitals in cities like Salt Lake, taken overflow patients from surrounding states, which had shortages of specialists and intensive care beds before the pandemic in North Dakota Cove in 19 hospitalizations were up 60% over this time last month, and it's not just capacity that stretched This week, The state said it would begin allowing medical staff who test positive for the virus, but asymptomatic to keep treating Covad patients here's Republican governor, Doug Burgum.

Florida and other states to monitor closely this Election Day
"State I am going to be watching is obviously going to be Florida. Now. Florida's governor, Ron De Santis. It came out this morning on Fox and friends and said, We expect Florida to be called for Donald Trump very, very quickly. This jibes with what I'm seeing. In the early vote, Democrats went into Election Day 2016 with a 96,000 vote advantage in early voting. This year, obviously much much difference because of covert 19. Republicans trim that, too, for 1000 votes. Now we know this because you got partisan ballots, so Republican votes almost invariably vote for Republicans. Democrats almost invariably vote for Democrats, although there is expected to be slightly bigger crossover Democrats voting for Trump, then Republicans voting for Joe Biden, as evidenced by the fact that Trump got 94% support in the Republican primary, which was by far a record. In all voting right now. Polls have been open for a couple of hours in Florida. And all types of voting early voting in person voting. There are 9000 more Republican ballots that have been returned than Democrat ballots. Now there are a whole lot of independence. People don't have to register is either a Republican or a Democrat. You can register as an independent. Independence. When doing this kind of analysis, just assume they're going to break pretty much 50 50. It's rare that independence break for a certain candidate, though we do have a lot of evidence that late breakers in Florida late breakers in Pennsylvania and late breakers pretty much in every swing state are in fact breaking towards President Trump, but it's not going to be some statistically massive. Number like 66%. If 66% of independents break for President Trump this race is going to be called by about 10:30 P.m. central time. I don't anticipate that happening, nor do I anticipate that this is set in stone. Trump's gonna win. He's going to win Florida. It's all over. But the shouting what I am saying is this is very good news. This is why on common sense Central right now. I've got an article entitled. It appears that Democrats are doing poorly and early voting here in Wisconsin. It looks like we don't have definitive numbers, but we do have a data set. That suggests that President Trump's voters are over, performing not only in the early vote, but now as we're seeing, Ah, whole lot of enthusiasm, a whole lot of lines in Trump heavy areas. We're seeing data that's encouraging. None of this should be taken as gospel because I'm just giving you a look at the numbers as I see them. I'm giving you a look at the facts on the ground as I see them and the facts on the ground or that one campaign sounds very, very confident and where they are. The other campaign is taking the relatively Unprecedented step campaign. Look, campaigning does happen on Election day. It's very rare that you see a campaign going to this many different swing areas on Election day as the Biden campaign has got, you got two stops for Joe Biden in Pennsylvania. You've got Pamela Harris going to Detroit, Michigan, indicating that they're very worried about turnout in Detroit, specifically amongst black voters. You've got Jill Biden going to Florida. She's also I believe going to Georgia and you've got Camilla Harris is husband. Also going to a swing state in Ohio if Florida is called early, and if Florida increases its margin for President Trump Remember it was Florida specifically Hillary Clinton's under performance in Miami Dade County. That was an early indicator four years ago that President Trump was going to do a lot better than the polls suggested that he would. Florida is going to be an early indicator again, as is North Carolina. If Trump is doing better in those states, typically, the upper Midwest is a little bit farther to the right then Florida and North Carolina, so you can probably anticipate that he's going to be doing better in Pennsylvania. In Ohio in Wisconsin. I would also be looking for Ohio, Ohio has gone a deeper shade of red. If that starts to go even deeper red, then you're going to know that upper Midwestern. Specifically, rural voters are going to trump in bigger margins. And this is what the early trends that President Trump was talking about. On Fox and friends this morning are indicating the early trend lines are that the voter base that the voter makeup this year is far more really. It's far whiter. It's older, and it's less likely to have a college degree than in 2016. Who do you suppose that favors? If the average voter is a 57 year old white male with a high school diploma who lives about 50 miles from the nearest big urban center. Who do you think that guy is most likely to vote for. Again. This doesn't indicate demographics are not destiny. Please remember that today. If you remember nothing else, remember that demographics are not destiny. The makeup of the voter base is another good sign. But it doesn't mean this race is over the behavior of the two campaigns the relative confidence of President Trump, whose campaign has presented actual data to suggest that hey, we've not only have Ah, pathway to victory, but it's It's looking increasingly likely even Mohr increasingly likely than four or five days ago that we're going Be able to take that path to the campaign. That's Oh, my goodness. We've got to get out here. We've got to get out here and we've got to get out here.

right leg below the knee in a farming accident that tragedy slowed him down but only for a while today his list of athletic accomplishments is almost endless including a visit to the top of Mount Everest a guy with one leg Jeff glass burners my guest today an amazing Americans and Jeff I gotta ask you do you ever sit back it and take a deep breath and sort of Marvel at all this stuff that's happened that you've accomplished in your life what some time but I always had to look forward and so it's great that you know I understand where you come from but I'm always trying to look for it and try to figure out new things that I want to count place the new dreams that I want to make happen is endless list them and you go from one thing to the other because we're gonna talk about it you got to you got to try off once you got the great the the basketball accomplishments you've got Mount Everest is a climber it is it's all right up one thing behind me I'm gonna go the next one is that what life is about for you know it can it is I like going in the company I had no idea about and then learning it and then becoming one of the best at it and so that's something I love to do is get my stuff out of comfort zone all the time to continue did change and involved you know if I have my personal let's go back to the to the this farming accident Jeff I know you told the story many many times so I think for our listeners that we're good here for the first time you're eight years old you're you're living on it on the family farm in Wisconsin and you have the day when you have the accident can you take us back and talk about that yep the just a normal farm kid you know what are my dad did you know it Hey don helped out in any way that I could and so did they were cut Hey and and we got the cat the hay and we had a rock in as usual my debt that young you can remove the rack and I got my face when on the tractor remove the rack and got back onto my face spot before beach there my dad turned on the machine and just in a split second my pant leg got caught the park a cop in Canada took off like a pimple sharpener as weird as remembered you know looking down on my leg and just being completely completely computer what just happened you know didn't didn't know what was going on and I remember my dad you know quickly take can pick me up and applying the human hand turning get that to try to save my life and try to put on the bleeding the the story goes that your dad probably did that T. probably saved your life is the it when you look back at it now is that accurate Jeff a hundred percent really upset I like to tell them that active like if he didn't act quickly of that it would an older for me really quick because that shock and all the blood loss that in and so he had the where with all even at the worst time of his life the county keep it together and get me to the neighbor's house and then from there the neighbor took me I'm bleeding yeah I have characters that the merging derailment and that's really kind of get my life you're eight years old Jeff in in this accident happens and as you described ever the story it it just like you said you look down he really wasn't sure it was happening II you in the place of the slave just saw blood when did the pain set in for you and your member that yeah the pain really didn't that and that hello you know I I I dealt with all the hospital staff you know going there what kind of cool you know everyone by our words action figure that part was really cool but the real pain can at that in when I was sent home to the hospital the doctors you know kind of called me about my new life was to be like that with no support and that was doing things that I wouldn't get hurt or other people and so that was really kind of hard because I was a farm boy and you know sports and you know be an active at the very a big part of my life and then being told you know they couldn't do much I was really kind of hard but you know I believe of limitations that we do you know the doctors know bad than that you know that parents and everyone else is telling you to do one thing and so you believe it you start believing all things that you can't do it and then that'll change for me were you at your only eight years old where you were at the you think an athletic guy who were you with your sports guy at age eight or July could participate in it I did so the non farm we had to do mostly farm working so we had a rate before last night late December for we got let out we had a a school rate and out the fat kid in my class so that was pretty cool thought excited about you know taking that into next year after the summer was off and then you know being from the the fact that in the class of the time to being told I can't even run I can't even be the slowest person in the class and so that that was really hard to kind of take and that it took a few years for that to change for me Jeff I grew up in the I didn't grow up on the farm but it grew up in a very rural community in South Dakota and these kinds of accidents aren't that unusual I'm guessing you probably connected with other people that have that have gone to that something similar to what you've gone through unfortunately I what was that that was the only one at that might cool and kind of the neighboring area that was you know physically different and I definitely can't help that though those early years service I've tried everything I could to try to fit in and and plan Dan so to speak and that you know always wear and no pants and get my leg may look how many covers and so I really didn't have that I was I was really different my camera I felt that way in the hospital a YouTube you mention this briefly people told you that you would now have limits that your life would change and and everything would be different now because you don't have a leg and you really had at age eight no choice but to listen those people right they were the experts they they were the people that that new yeah they're the experts I'm for sure but luckily I was that I was but not have great can't that you know while they didn't let me place board but they made me do other things and so upon leaving the hospital my mom I was speaking to another parent and and they were in the biggest enemy of the kid with a disability are their parents you know they can either choose to do things for them or they can choose to make them in the panda and I was very lucky in and have my parents you know it well they couldn't play sports it would let me do that but they made me do chores they made me do my sister toward what Hugh that porting a band of like that so I was I was independent that path the kid but I was I would have to limit but not planned port I'm not trying to do crazy things to get hurt so to speak I think you people be curious listeners Jeff what life is like as a kid you're eight years old you lose your your right leg below the knee what's life like that with with fellow students and friends was there was a push back was a rousing was their bullying was being made fun of any of that stuff yeah for sure you know just being a kid at it hard because yeah you want to be like everyone else and and then the you know this was the glaring not show up my courage is and with tennis treated differently it was even push down and bullied I'm for being different but you know kids are kids than that and you try to you know cannot develop that thick skin and and try to fit in when you can buy it would definitely hard you will definitely hard being different but I also think that that kind that helped shape me inform me of who I am today you got this you mention your parents great supporters anybody else along the way teachers coaches anybody else that that were that were on your side so to speak and really kind of help you through that tough time yeah really my sister I'm fourteen months younger than I am but you've always been my best friend and always in their support you know my support and so she was always the best athlete cool so I get the kinda lived through her athletic dream going out the kid and she always you know stuck out I stood up for me and and everything and she's already billion near she definitely Matt back we sure but that you have a day my sister my parents the end yeah it wasn't because I'm I got to college and and look at look at basketball that I had another mentor but early on it was definitely my sister yeah we'll talk about that that athletic career starting with basketball the next segment here Jeff is will curious first time fitted for the prosthesis what was that like it was horrible was it I just remember I have had this remember I'm going to I'm walking we had to travel three half hours to go to market to get fitted for my leg and they made a caffeine and and they told me like two months later to show up from my late again so you know two months ago by it may be years old like Artie grew out of it by the time my I went there and so as member Joaquin it was it was really have the didn't feel comfortable it didn't feel like a part of me and so that was really hard to so I rebelled I didn't want it like I'd rather have my crutches them and and Bill as that of my means of transport but my parents you know kind of forced me into it and like now you need to do this will get it right and so every time I go back a feeding that happened add you know like a half inch yeah my leg and and things like that so it's very very uncomfortable when I first got it but today is a different story technology is so amazing is is it to today are you still wearing a prosthesis or do you most time without you do okay yeah I do I recently had a an infection in my legs I had surgery on my crutches right today but normally I have about eleven different lakes and so whatever you do I can have a leg that I can go accomplish that hello eleven different links

"Bargains you want deals check out Clark deals dot com where we monitor sales around the country around the clock and post for you the best deals happening so there's a report that Experian puts out I think they do this every year where they analyze their credit scores over all of Americans and then they break it down state by state and there is a stunner in the results for credit scores in where they're great in the country and where they're terrible so let's start with great people are much better at handling their credit than anywhere else in the country generally in the upper Midwest credit score is much much higher than the national average and also in a handful of states in New England people are much better with money so just give me an idea Minnesota better than anywhere else in the country I Wisconsin Iowa North Dakota South Dakota and Nebraska in the upper Midwest people get far above average credit scores yeah New England yeah and Massachusetts Vermont New Hampshire there's no income pattern to it there's nothing other than for whatever reason culturally in New England and in the northern Midwest people are more reluctant to borrow money the people if they have credit cards they use them much more sparingly then people do elsewhere in the country eight you know why that's really interesting to me because roughly a third of what makes up your credit score is that you've established credit but the you you use very little of it at any one time with those utilization the lower you utilization the less likely you're gonna default hello are you utilization in turn you're granted a much higher credit score in the credit scoring models on the other hand in very deep south Americans have the worst credit scores and it's a pretty wide gap with Americans in the south averaging credit scores that are at the point where you were pretty much what's known as a subprime borrower that's a way of saying that you are a risky bar were for a lender if you live across the Deep South so the reason that people yeah and by the way the worse credit scores are in Mississippi and Arkansas Georgia was just behind Arkansas I think anyway the reason is the whole war opposite of what I said about the upper Midwest in New England that people in the Deep South tend to very heavily used the credit they have available to them and nobody exactly knows why I agree I think it could be a cultural thing but if you want to improve your overall financial health and in turn the result of that is you end up with a higher credit score you end up with less anxiety in your life around money it's that when you do get access to credit the credit card a credit limit on it that you remember this key rule for every dollar in credit you have available to you never charge up more than thirty cents so let's say you have a thousand dollar credit limit you would never have outstanding charges in a month a balance higher than three hundred dollars okay is mathematically I mean it's proven then if your amount of credit you're using goes beyond thirty percent of the credit that's been granted to you the chances you're gonna go delinquent on it the chances you're gonna default on it sky rocket with us on the Clark our show add how are you well doing well huge fan clerk thank you very much ed how can I serve you okay I got a good I have a question for you so I have family family business we were blessed and we were able to sell the family business and we came in with a large sum of money in in till we decide on what to do with that money it might be a week might be six months might be two years I'm not sure I want to put that money in a safe place so the first thought I have is on and stick it in you know one of the national banks putting in a savings account in probably the safest place but then I start thinking myself well that account is only insured up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars right now we're talking about a great problem you sold the business you've got multiples of two fifty and you want to make sure that the bank goes bust you don't lose everything past the two fifty correct email is a good deal yes it's a great problem have I feel very blessed so my question is where is the safest place to park money while you're thinking about what to do with it I'm gonna give you a couple options one is there's something called sea dar's C. D. A. R. S. dot com and it's something very heavily approved of by the FDIC it's a service that allows someone in and by the way you were one of the two most common circumstances where someone would go to seed ours one is in a large inheritance and the other is the sale of a business and so people end up with all this money and you don't want to have it at risk with the bank failure so what seed ours does is they do a thing where they place your money with multiple institutions so that no one institution has more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars of your money got it okay so you know if you start having to go open a bunch of different accounts that's a pain right correct so they just take care of the pain for you Hey I know you must take they must take a small number of basis points you know just a small amount of money for doing all the administrative for you okay so you you can make money but there it's it is chargeable they're going to charge you a small basis point but you can alternately make money in that yeah what they do is they use their system to in there's a video they are you can watch that explains exactly how the process works but they just spread the money around and then their job is to make sure you're always below the FDIC Maxine in any institution all right now let me give you another idea that some poor if you have suddenly a lot of money you have tax problems it's a good now the good thing to have because you only have money when you have tax problems or vice versa so you can look at doing a short bond fund in tax free municipal bonds that's completely safe so I don't know if you're familiar with municipal bond funds yes I am so if you went into one vanguard is a low cost provider of municipal bond funds and you could go in their short term municipal bond fund you'd have extremely limited downside risk you know if interest rates suddenly heavily escalated they also have a municipal money market fund so you're you're always at level of but you're in a lower interest rate on but I would feel really comfortable if you looked at their short term tax free fund if you have any thoughts about key builder treasury notes you could do that you're not gonna earn as much likely is you are in the municipal bond fund because what's happened with the treasury market is foreigners are very heavily coming in the United States in buying treasuries as a way of finding a safe spot for their money and they come in with just billions of dollars so it depresses the interest rates paid on short term treasury obligations the municipal bond market is a domestic market doesn't face that competition of foreign hot money and that's why you get the tax free benefit from federal tax and you get the potentially higher interest rate on the municipals then you could earn on treasuries Diane's with us on the park our chill hi Diane can you hear me OK I hear you perfectly so you are choosing with your eyes wide open to marry a man who's got what issue coming into the marriage our file bankruptcy chapter seven two years ago sure rather messy divorce and happens to have some rental property and he found out after the fact that those would have to go into foreclosure so wondering what how that's going to impact if we do merry me so as far as how you approach this the first rule when you're getting married to someone who has a history of financial issues including you got four closures here you got a chapter seven bankruptcy all that you want to keep accounts separate okay separately checking accounts savings accounts credit not necessarily but it may be that the important thing is that you live your life together your hearts together but your finances separate interesting how and when when he's back on his feet financially and you're not worrying about anybody coming after him any past issues then you can look at the possibility of some co mingling of funds but you never well there's still a cloud there you never want to co mingle finds because let's say somebody doesn't action where they come to seize funds if you have a joint account your money in the eyes of the law is his money and they take the money from that joint account that's why you would want to stay away from that I will bellow landing right were trying to get a mortgage it for ever wanted that would also be impacted well okay we're getting a mortgage because he has both a bankruptcy chapter seven which is what's called a clean slate and the foreclosures yeah his credit is at a point where there's no advantage to you including him and even his income in an application applying for a mortgage know when it's time his credit will heal that chapter seven follows him for ten years really yeah hi he was told to no no ten years it stays on your credit okay the foreclosures depending on the circumstance of them will normally keep you out of the mortgage market for five years there are circumstances hang it the other way around wouldn't it now oh you mean why is chapter seven treated more severely more because the right for closure to me if you're you're not paying your mortgage court on quality you're not paying you know your whatever you own so in my mind I would think that would say Hey you're not we're not gonna give your mortgage for a long time if you have for clothes okay so then that's an interesting perspective because see the chapter seven is sometimes referred to as the nuclear option okay as with yet you don't pay any of your dads that's why it's called fresh start a clean slate and that's why it is there for ten years and he was told to do that because the only that they had were these properties so the other one that was at all the purpose of the chapter seven was to prevent a legal action for the losses the lender suffered on the foreclosures yes yeah so that was that was a defensive strategy to make him judgment proof Yalla the is that that causes a different kind of judgment where lenders are afraid of him for a decent period of time so you're going to carry the credit burden for a while okay so I minimum probably ten years like you're saying no ten is the Max Max up so is even though it sits there for ten years as time goes on time is a healer with us and it impacts but it's not a complete shut down for the ten years now how would you on that not a word in signing or not he should sign up for a credit karma kill yes I know pretty calm I listen to you for a long time I get credit karma so he should have a credit Carmen over time he'll be able to track what's going on with his credit score and credit standing okay so are you you are in this marriage you are the bank for a while and that some of you just have to be aware of and be happy to live with you're
