Snowfall turtles that were going to see that with this particular storm will be among the highest that we've seen for this entire wear season. It has been below average for snowfall across the northeast this year. And so this no Easter will be very impactful because we haven't really seen a whole lot of snow. New York governor Kathy hochul already has warned that the storm could be deadly, and she's telling people in the affected areas to stay off the roads, the Albany area could get three feet of snow.

Taggart Houck: Alex Murdaugh's Son Has Kept Quiet During Trial
"You're talking about the horrific loss of life of two family members of the murtaugh family. I know you've covered a lot of stuff in your tenure as you worked in Myrtle Beach and now in the upstate my gosh, even to a reporter like you, this has got to be eye opening to see the details of this case. I mean, I've just got so many questions for you. If I could start with one of them, I see the surviving son buster is sitting behind his dad every day in this courtroom, does the sun support his father who has been accused of such a heinous crime of slaughtering buster's brother and mom? And Mike, first of all, thank you so much for having me on, it's great to talk to you this morning. Thank you. That is that I think a lot of us are asking ourselves in the media. We've seen buster walk into the courtroom every single day since the jury has actually been selected. So essentially, every single day of this trial, we have seen him walk into the courtroom, sit behind his father, and he is always with his uncle, John Marvin Murdoch, as well as Alex sister, and then buster's girlfriend. But I think the big question, you know, a lot of people wonder if he's supporting him. We are not able to speak with buster. We have been asking him questions as he's walked into the courthouse, but have not gotten any answers. He is, though, on the defense's list to testify, indicating that he is certainly someone who is cooperating with the defense on this side of this. So I guess if you're wanting to draw the lines, you could say potentially that he is, but public, we have not seen any comment from buster at this point. It's been very fascinating to see him in the courtroom and kind of the way he's even sitting in the courtroom with some of his expressions for the most part has not really shown much emotion during his trial.

However, it's going to win and whoever the Democrats want to win. They're in control of the ballots and they decide. We've lost this country. We've lost the republic. Yes. I mean, there's people that have the gloom and doom. It's the end of the world and we're never going to get the country back. They call it again. What happened? I mean, I appreciate your cynicism. What happened in Florida? Did they steal Florida? What happened in upstate New York? What happened to all the states? They have enough control to steal they stole it from Trump. If you watch 2000 mules, you can easily see they stole it. They're going to continue to steal it. They're going to continue their expansion. We've lost our country. Yes. We've done nothing about it. So what country do you want to move to? Where do you want to go? Since you gave up on America. Since you've given up, where do you want to go? I'm ready to do whatever it take to win about.

Dinesh Continues His Review of the Midterm Election Results
"I'm back and we're talking about the midterms and some results have come in in the last day or so. In fact, I mean I were talking together about results out of New York. A number of congressional races that were poised kind of on the knife's edge or were right in the middle have tipped over into the Republican column. Let's remember, by the way, we think of New York, we're like, wow, New York really? What? But New York is fairly conservative outside of New York City. So as you begin to move Long Island as you move upstate, you republicanism is not uncommon, and in some ways it's even the majority. So it's only because of the dense population of New York that New York is a safely by and large democratic state. But what you have here is races that were that had about an equal number of Republicans and Democrats. So maybe even democratic leaning falling the Republican way. Now what does this mean? Well, it basically helps us in the house. And we have to give credit to this guy Lee zeldin, Lee zeldin ran against Kathy hochul for the governor's race, and he lost, but he lost pretty narrowly. I mean, if you look at those numbers between Zelda and hulk, I mean huckel won it pretty cleanly, but it was not the normal blowout. It wasn't something where hoku got 60 and zeldon got 40. It was something where these guys were just a few points apart and what that means is that Zelda had a sort of coattail in New York. He was able to pull up some of the other Republicans. By the way, this was just a confirmation of how politics works in teams. In other words, if you do well at the top of the ballot, you often do better at the bottom of the ballot. One of the anomalies of 2020 was the Trump lost, but Republicans down ballad did pretty well. This is an anomaly that I think about when I, as I put the film together 2000 meals and also wrote the wrote the accompanying book.

Kevin McCullough Brings Good News From Last Night's Results
"Continue talking to our friend Kevin McCullough. You may know him as his real name, votes for dumbest. I say it. It's a chilling thing to pronounce that word votes through. He knows all tells all, okay, votes true. Tell us more about what happened last night. Again, I have officially dubbed this, Eric is not allowed to be depressed day. Even though the media is telling you that Joe Biden won last night and that Trump is finished and that everything else is going downhill, that is the opposite of what happened. And you ended last hour talking about Lee zeldin. Let me just talk to you about the quote unquote failed candidacy of Lee zeldin. First of all, Kathy hochul will take this governorship reigns with the smallest percentage win of any governor in New York's history in the last hundred years. Nobody has come this close to losing their seat and still want it. Having said that, what does that mean? Well, she obviously has been sent a message that New Yorkers are tired of the crime. They've got a lot of issues about the economy, et cetera, et cetera. But in zeldin's fervor to get to that place, he worked 19 months, he held huge rallies on Long Island and upstate. There was obviously chicanery that took place in Manhattan that you were talking about cheating that's obvious. It's obvious that there's some sort of like printing press at the bottom of Gracie mansion in the city or something. I don't know. But in all of this excitement, he pulled probably four more congressional delegates into the GOP delegation for new Yorkers than they have had in many, many years.

It's, again, on stage, mainstream media people are saying if you don't vote Democrat, our kids are going to die. Again, New York might turn red, yes, you heard me right. Oh my gosh, as an upstate New Yorker or somebody originally from upstate New York, I am shocked, fascinated, excited, nervous. I don't know, I feel lots of emotions about this one, but I can tell you we are really excited to see what happens. And then, of course, we have to talk about the elephant in the room. You guys, Trump, just attacked Ron DeSantis, and let's just say, I'm not happy about it. But we're going to talk about it, okay? Let's get on into it.

"Announced plans to invest as much as $100 billion over the next 20 years to build a factory in upstate New York to boost U.S. production of memory chips. I talked with New York governor Kathy hochul about the project. This will be the home and the manufacturer of the largest semiconductor manufacturing facility in the country. This is creating jobs that will be sustainable for decades to come. So for the state, this sends a very strong message that after a national and global search for the best site location for this incredible project, micron chose New York State. This telegraphs that New York State is open for business, there's strong confidence by the business community that this is the place for the future technologies to be developed. But as far as upstate itself, I'm the first governor from upstate and over a hundred years. I've lived the decline of upstate for much of my younger life and to know that the future is absolutely unlimited. They're projecting over 50,000 new jobs, direct jobs over 9000 that pay over $100,000. And what people don't know about upstate perhaps is that $100,000, you can get a wonderful home, good public education, great amenities, short commutes. And so my crime, we had a chance to develop a deep relationship with the CEO and his site selection team over the last year was my first one of my first official meetings as governor. So I could not be more delighted for what this means for the continuing story of New York State. Yeah, spoken like a true upstate or if I may say, this is something of a public private partnership. Micron obviously making a big investment, the federal government helping out. And New York State, the reports are something like $5.5 billion in various concessions and support from New York State. What is in that $5.5 billion? And how do you make sure that the state gets its money's worth? Well, it's very simple. Basically, this is an enhancement of a program that already exists where we will give tax credits after jobs are created. So this is not a blank check and you hoping a wing and a prayer. No, this is concrete. It's money that will be spent over the 20 years as the jobs are created. So this is a smart investment, as every dollar from the state of New York is converted into literally a $20 investment. So that's a nice return on your dollar. So we believe that this is going to be a catalyst, not just for this company and jobs to come here, but also the supply chain companies that will say, you know, I don't want to manufacture overseas. There's so many disruptions and what we saw happen last year when our automotive industry was brought to its knees because they couldn't get these tiny chips. We make them here in New York. We have national security economic security and consumer security that they'll be able to get the products that basically are essential to human life now. Your cell phones, your vehicles, computers. So that's all happening. So this is a very wise investment from Europe because we are in competition with every other state in the nation. So governor in success, this will be a nice shot in the arm for New York for years to come. Give us your sense as the governor of the state where we are in the economy. A lot of people are expecting a downturn nationally quite possibly in New York. Is New York State position for that possible downturn? As far as our state budget goes, yes, I was very conservative in my first budget, even though the skies were sunny last January, and we did our budget. I also knew that we had to be prepared for a rainy day. So I set aside reserves. At one time, we had 4% reserves when I took office. We now will have up to 15%. So I want to make sure that we can stabilize our economy. Regardless of the headwinds that may be out there, no tax increases continue as I said to be the most business friendly and worker friendly state in the nation. And micron's decision to select New York above all others is a strong signal that our message is getting through. And you mentioned specifically governor in micron's decision housing being relevant, being able to afford a house up in the Syracuse area. One of the issues for the state is affordable housing and certainly back in New York City we have this with affordable housing. Where are you on affordable housing? Because I know there are various proposals about how tax breaks could support multiple dwellings and for a long period of time and really get it down to an affordable level. What are you hoping for in the next legislature? I am going to have a very ambitious housing program, not just affordable but market rate as well because that is the only barrier in addition to making sure our streets are safe, something I work on with the mayor all the time, but also people want to come to New York. You can tell by the fact that you can not rent an apartment at any price in the city. But in order for workers in these great jobs to be able to live in the community where they work, we have to jump start the whole construction industry of building more homes. And I agree with tax incentives that need back on the books to create the incentives for businesses to do something that is important as a public policy to help us build affordable housing, as well as

We will never, ever see the world. Oh my gosh, the hip hop. Yeah, so from what I gather, it does mean a female and the origin is from hip hop slang. So Laura, you don't strike me as one who is familiar with that kind of street vernacular. Oh no, no, no, no. I don't know what the end to them would be, but that is that that's still a mystery, but apparently it does come from hip hop slang. Who would have known that we would have had a hip hop king to rule out lovely Gotham here. Wow. Hip hop man. All I can say, Laura is the last hip hop mayor was in Detroit. Who ended up getting 28 years for corruption in a federal prison in Fort Worth, and he was given a commutation of that sentence by then president Donald Trump. We have a hip hop man. Good grades.

"A week and a half. It was chaos. Was the latest on the polio virus found in wastewater samples from another upstate New York county. More on that, but first, news headlines. Live from NPR news, I'm Janine herbst. Families of students and teachers slain at rob elementary school and Yuval di, are in Austin today, demanding that Texas governor Greg Abbott do more to prevent further mass shootings in the state. From member station Ku T, Kayleigh hunter reports that some gathered outside the governor's mansion this morning to play recordings of their lost loved ones. The voice of fourth grade teacher Eva Morales and other victims of the rob elementary school massacre echoed outside the walls of the governor's mansion. It was an emotional plea to the governor to address gun violence in the state. Brett cross is the uncle of ten year old uziah Garcia, who is among the 19 children and two adults who were killed in the shooting in May. This is all we have left because you do not give a damn. The families are also participating in a March for our lives rally at the Texas capitol. On Kayleigh hunt and Austin. A day after the Justice Department released a heavily redacted version of the affidavit used to justify a search of former president Donald Trump's South Florida home. Questions remain. Nearly half the document that spelled out the reason for the property search is blacked out and piers Ryan Lucas has more. The department described the affidavit as a road map to its investigation. And it said that releasing the affidavit untouched could compromise the very investigation that's underway. And so details about the scope and the direction of the investigation were redacted in the version that was released. So for example, in a section about the probable cause for believing that classified documents and government records were still at Mar-a-Lago, pretty much the whole section on that was blacked out page after page. In pierce Ryan Lucas reporting. More than three months into the outbreak of monkeypox in the United States, confirmed cases have now topped 17,000, but the rate of spread appears to be slowing. And piers Amy held reports, new cases have dropped about 25% in recent weeks. The major cities that experienced the virus earliest, New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco are all seeing signs of a slowdown, says CDC director doctor Rochelle Walensky. We're watching this with cautious optimism and really hopeful that many of our harm reduction messages and our vaccines are getting out there and working. More people at highest risk are getting vaccinated. At the same time, infectious disease experts say behavior changes among gay and bisexual men who account for the vast majority of cases have also been key. Though it's too soon to say whether the outbreak has peaked in the U.S., overseas in parts of Europe, where the virus was detected weeks earlier. Cases have been steadily dropping since July. Amy held NPR news, and one of the confirmed cases or 18 of the confirmed cases are pediatric cases. You're listening to NPR news. And in the WNYC newsroom, I'm Tiffany Hansen. New Jersey's attorney general is sending a warning to 30 landlords in the state. Stop discriminating against formally incarcerated people. WNYC's Karen yee reports on the new state housing law. The fair chance in housing act took effect earlier this year, saying landlords can't ban people with criminal convictions from applying for units. They also can't ask about someone's criminal history on a housing application until after they've conditionally approved the tenant, even then only crimes committed within a recent time frame or more serious offenses, such as murder or sexual assaults, can be used to deny an application. The attorney general's office says the 30 sided landlords have to change their policies and agree to training or else face civil penalties that can range from $1000 for a first offense up to $10,000 for repeat violations. And the virus that causes polio has been found in wastewater samples from another upstate New York county and state health officials warn of expanding community spread of the life threatening virus. The State Department of Health says the polio virus was detected in four samples from Sullivan county to each in July and August. Sullivan county is northwest of rockland county, where the first case of polio in nearly a decade in the U.S. was detected back in July, state health commissioner doctor Mary Bassett is continuing to urge residents to make sure they are vaccinated.

And we're going to pay $3 million for that land as a partnership. Me and all my buddies. Well, the highest and best use we're going to say for that land isn't 3 million bucks where we purchase it for. We're going to see the highest and best uses for a sky rise Trump hotel, right? And that value of that Trump hotel or say to keep it from becoming a Trump hotel, right? Because you're creating an easement so they can't build on it. Well, if it's worth $30 million, well, I get a terrible deduction because I'm going to lock it up and not let anybody build on it. I get a deduction of $30 million, okay? So you get this donation deduction, essentially. And so the IRS is attacking some of these. We filed them with our clients returns. But the liability lies with the firm that's doing the valuation, right? So if they're egregious on the valuation for the property, then IRS is going to attack them. And they might come and trickle down and say, okay, hey, hey investor, you owe us tax on this because it was overvalued. And maybe a little meet you somewhere in the middle of what the value should be. So it is aggressive for some people, but it is a legitimate tool. It's in the toolbox for the IRS code. So I would be, I would hesitate, but I would also ask the questions of, okay, show me some of your other ones. And then do your due diligence and say, hey, are you investigation with IRS? Just make sure you're asking those questions. Or have your CPA ask us questions? Got it. Got it. There's a school of thought.

Biological microbes is complicated right. Our minds immunity to thought microbes. Cognitive contagion is also complicated. So you can be. You can have a high level of resistance to alien abduction stories and a very low level of of resistance to scientology so the the full truth about what makes minds immune and what it makes them immune to and what it fails to make them immune to is complicated but you can in fact learn a discipline of idea testing that makes you immune to many many many kinds of mind parasites in the book. I argue that that the famous socratic method is one of the most powerful mind innocuous of all time and that if we all take our cue from socrates and learn how to test ideas with questions and then in particular right kinds of questions that we can begin to develop herd immunity to cognitive contention.

Just give us a sense of how New York State is relative to some other states in terms of renewable energy. If I drive upstate tonight, or the next time I drive upstate, should I be on the lookout for wind farms, solar farms? Yeah, New York has a long history of being out on the forefront of thinking about clean energy technologies. In fact, it really is a story of two different grits. The upstate power grid in New York is very, very clean and very, very cost effective because going back 100 years we've been building hydropower. And in addition to that we now over the last decade or so I've been very aggressive in building out wind and solar facilities. So it's a very clean grid is very cost effective did the challenges When you get to a densely populated urban area like New York City, it's difficult and expensive. Build large scale renewable energy in a place like this and the unique geography of New York and that we've got this pinch point coming down the Hudson River Valley. It's very difficult to build transmission lines there. So New York has very aggressive policies that are progressive and they're moving us in the right direction. It's simply a meet a challenge of the bottle necking. Our ability to access.
