"To the Steves caffee Show on w g. N J 11 46 on this Thursday edition. Jeff Wagner be filling this chair in a few minutes, but before we get to that You were telling about the story in the break. You know, Burger King, one big fast food franchises. This is an interesting idea, especially given the fact that we're in a pandemic, So I know you. You're a big fan of them. Mickey D's so too, right. You like to grab a coat I've cut way back. But that was a thing that Oye will you consider if you were getting one using a reason Reusable cup? So like that, one that would actually say, like Mickey D's. In this case, it's Burger King. So Burger King planning the test reusable containers next year in an effort to reduce waste. So customers can opt in for reusable packaging for items like a sandwich, a soft drink and coffee. They can then return the reusable container or beverage cup to Burger King restaurants, and they can then be cleaned and reused. So They clean him? Yeah. But all that handling I mean, we're in a pandemic. How is that and it's like if you're trying to figure out it's not like a glass. It's like, probably almost like a It's like a you know, like thick plastic it looking cup, I guess would be what would hold it. For those who participate. The program comes with a cost customers will be charged a small deposit kind of like when you go to the deer God deposit upon purchase, and once the packaging has returned, they will receive a refund. So how does that help you get your food and stuff, though I mean Well, you just When you order you give them that. And then they wash it right away. Know they would They would give you a new one. So they're all the same. I guess it kind of makes sense. Kind of like a A frequent flyer programme for fast food, right. So you go there and the instead of a disposable they give you this little container and you use it. You drop it back. They give you a new one. That's all fresh and clean. Yeah. A lot of work for them. Like, Where's all this? Washington happen? Yeah, the reusable cups. Yeah. In your right. Do they put it in some special planes? They flip a button and in Washington mouth, Then you pull. Not again. I will say this, don't you think? Outside of your home garbage. Some of the biggest examples of littering is fast food stuff. Oh, you'll see it all over that. When I used to run a lot long distances you go through parkways and streets and communities. All you see is fast food bags and containers. I've been around this place for a long time. Right? And I've eaten fast food, not lessen. I used to But nothing ever said to me. I'm going to eat this meal. And then drop all my garbage on the street. What mindset creates that kind of a madness, right? Anyone? I don't get it. I mean, what drives that? But yet here we see Aiken Aiken, Point here in the radio city and drive down Capitol drivers see fast food, garbage all over the place. So what B k is trying to do with this. It's similar to other efforts that the restaurant has tried in the past. In July, Fast food can announce a version of its whopper made from lemon grass fed beef, which is said they would cut methane emissions. Other commitments from the company included having 100% of its restaurants, guest packaging come from renewable, recycle or recertified sources. And recycling all guest packaging and its restaurants in the U. S. By 2025. I applaud him that I mean that there was trying to think outside the box and we can certainly lessen them on a garbage that we all contribute to. You know, I'm curious. So what would you consider I was paying a little bit more have a cup. They only then return. Sure, get another cup. I mean, what we find these cups all over the place and we made but you're paying. You're essentially paying for them. Would you just throw it away if you paid for it? Right? Well, actually, you're you're incurring costs that you're not going to get back if you don't turn it back in on DH just to follow up on something we talked about earlier the chicken dance. It was penned. I think they use that We're not purpose 60 years ago by Swiss musician Warner Thomas he he created on the accordion at a Swiss holiday resorts. The two in first pop into his head and 1955 or so he spent the next few years revising its came up with the dance to go with it. The quirky routine. He ultimate devised was not inspired by chickens, but rather by skiers. Skiers. He used to go to ski resorts in 19 fifties, he watched the skiers go down the hill zipping backwards and sideways and all that stuff and he said it reminded him of a duck. Eventually. Was he had something called the duck dance being the chicken dance it caught on at weddings. And AH Dutch band released A 1980 version spent 29 weeks on the Dutch charts, which is kind of surprising, given how lame that song is and in America. Chicken Dance was first unveiled at a October fest in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Wow. There's a lot of history there and now it's said that almost every wedding, not everyone, but a lot of weddings. That was a no. Go at our wedding. My wife said. Absolutely not. I would not want to play. Yeah, I think that's probably the more common opinion Now. What's the other? There's a couple other ones like that right there. That's the one the line dance one that's always posed as a bunch of line ones. Oh, yeah, howto lined and so many have you ever done that? My life was line dance. I've tried. I I don't know. I don't know the routine. You warm up a little bit. You start trying. Remember when the macaroni was Macarena was big weddings. There's a few song nineties there for celebration and still wanted. Everyone kind of looks around. When they're sitting at their tables. Everyone goes to the dance floor. They don't do that for rap songs. None of that's true When I last wedding I went to in person, which was last January, There was a old person's I'm this is my my turn old person's music. And then the last hour and a half, two hours trying to get all that. Yeah, let's turn it up, but it was crazy. It was like a feeding frenzy out there. And I said I set down fiddle, Sir. Mix a lot. Yeah. There you go, So things have changed in the old wedding business. This is the Steve Skiff. Edie Show on W. T. M. J. Well, it wasn't great boy. Do they know that was pretty frustrating? Day week? Six is in the.

If there's I'm not sure how much the guy would have filmed of. Ah, the dancing and the music and all that stuff. It's It's pretty. Ah, it's bad. It's hooking. A lot of it's staged and it's really sad to watch back. But maybe I'll maybe I'll break it out Thursday just to see exactly some of the people. You mean. What's what's staged. Just look, you know where the guy who was doing it said Okay, let's you know you two get together and say this and do that. And now we're gonna have it was just like there were things that were like moments. It was supposed to be like really romantic, and they were kind of staged outside. It's just It's hard to explain, but there was a lot of phony. This will look nice in 25 years when you look back at this moment Exercise. Yeah, it was really dumb. Yeah, now, okay. You said knight plots for here's the best part. You ready? So we did it. We got married outside. We got married up in Hyde Park in Niagara Falls. Ah, it's a nice little setting their little gazebo or whatever the heck anyway, So we get married out. There's a little Not a lake. But there's like a little body of water inside the park, and I didn't necessarily get this. We were doing the vows because I was concentrating at screwing up the vows. So we get we get the movie, right? We're all excited. We put it in during the reading of our vows. Someone has like a little power boat They're playing with on the water, and it drowns out the vows on the movie like it is unbelievable. The timing of it. You're trying to listen here. Ah, you know, you hear the sound of the motor boat, The little power boat going through, drowns out the vows just completely killed that portion of the ceremony. Now. Okay, You said 1994 right, 95 95 were were couples doing the first look back in 1995 1st look is what the hell's The first look First look, is a different spin on traditional husband sees bride. Husband's his wife. Oh, right. They definitely were not. No way. We did not do that. Okay. We did the 1st 1st Look what that does is. You know the first time you see your husband or wife is not At alter or at the end of the aisle where you're walking down and like, Hey, you know, hi, continual day today you have set aside before that and like when we did it, you know, walk out by yourself. Go stand over there on that hill and you know, don't look and then she walks out. You turn around. You get pictures of just the two of you in that moment on then.

It was one the wedding after Right instead of like when you know you get married. The reception or the wedding happens then Sometimes the bridal party will go take pictures that we then be late to the reception..

"For everyone what we're finding out in just a minute first our study was the is it is it is the it was not working for the sellers under banked why would they want to cut the whole layer of people mostly women minority owned businesses native American formal American veterans all it takes is a painting and those initiatives that is a Nancy Pelosi trying to rationalize a ridiculous move to not allow the additional funding of the PPP their paycheck protection program that is out of money out of last night or after last night is designed to give small business employees and employers money to keep themselves solvent while they wait to stand up the country again joining us now is Steve Scalise Steve you watch Mitch McConnell asked for three hundred billion more dollars on a program the Democrats the Democrats supported where is this minority protest under bank to turn my never heard we did this come from what is she what evidence does she have a this it's just unbelievable but she block and this funding and if you think about it it's been the most successful program you've seen set up to get a life line to our small businesses it's working in every community I don't know what what she wanted but more than one point four million small businesses have already been approved under this program register Nancy Pelosi's home state of California they've been over fifty thousand small businesses that have been approved for this program so that there's somebody that's been left out it's only because she's blocking the renewal of the funding to get more money into this program it will run out of money very likely today Brian it will run out and they had to close his hand in the way who's in I want to play devil's advocate but rather just I can't even pretend as if it's rational because this is a small business top Republicans and Democrats small business owners make up the the eighty percent of the economy small business owners are both for her so I don't I don't get it but I'm gonna ask you this in terms of the exes and ohs of it what is happening today I understand leadership is meeting today they're gonna look for you to try to find hospitals or give more direct payments to states is that true what else can you tell our audience we've seen a laundry list of items from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and can often see a lot has to do that they're trying to hold on to to get the money and the release of these small bedroom I think that when we talk about small business and five percent of that money has to be spent on payroll meeting workers bringing people off the unemployment rolls so Nancy Pelosi literally letting millions more people on the unemployment role which you blocks the program in this program not only will one out of money today if it's not done so we are in talks the White House you've been trying to have negotiations with all leaders in Congress unfortunately we've not gotten to an agreement we can agree we we can have these fights of all these other items that are unrelated to help and small businesses we agreed on that system one of the great things that Republicans and Democrats came together to agree on and like you said it small businesses not just Republican any small business the lady did program and many will get cut off when it runs out today the funding ought to be renewed we can have our disagreements on other issues but this is something we agreed on and it's about to run out of money those other programs are not running out of money right now let's review what is working and help these small businesses and the millions of workers who don't want to be on the unemployment rolls could you tell us about Louisiana we feared you guys got around a beds ventilators everything and it didn't come to pass weary at now things are getting better fortunately and what president trump took very quick action I remember talking to everybody from the president of the end of the month working with my governor when they weren't worried about a shortage of ventilators we actually got over three hundred more ventilators from the federal government and it's gotten to the point now where are the head of one of our largest hospitals in New Orleans Warner Thomas was just at the White House two days ago working with the president on a program to share ventilators because now we've only gotten through that I thank you for coming down like you see in in New York and some other places and if the community is getting to a point where they're in need of that later they are used in hospitals that have extra ventilators sharing with places that might not so no one has run out of ventilators which is a good sign the end in New Orleans were seeing a decrease in people that need that later so those are all positive signs as we get better about you know people are staying at home there but we also are now prime minister talk about opening the economy back up in a safe way we need to start having that conversation absolutely can I just also mention the on small business that the toy twenty five seventy five my work in Louisiana but doesn't work in Los Angeles New York in Austin where the rents are so high if they just pay payroll they won't be able to keep the lights on they'll be no business to keep people employed in are you guys cognizant of that a lot of items that we've been working through Brian with the US and German to Jen and the treasury department as we found out blogs in the system and what the system was put up very quickly you know in terms of government federal government to be able to set up a program in less than two weeks I have about three hundred and fifty billion dollars in loans approved by our local banks to save small businesses that is might be burned out of it in the meantime we found items along the way that we need to work through and and treasures been really good about addressing those items and they pop up.

that make it a recommendations only recommendations voluntary we also take action to ensure the cost of no barrier to any Americans seeking testing or treatment of the corona virus the largest insurer nationwide the Blue Cross blue shield system has now announced that it will not require any copays which is really something that's a tremendous statement from patients of the virus treatment for the next sixty days similar to the commitments of cigna humana anthem those are great companies and they're all doing the same thing so co pays for them to do that is to be stable we appreciate it today I came so proudly announce that hospitals and healthcare providers treating uninsured rona virus patients will be reimbursed by the federal government using funds from the economic relief package Congress passed last month was that was as per the question yesterday and actually the day before yesterday they should alleviate any concerns uninsured Americans may have about sinking the corona virus treatments so that's I think answers the question pretty well and very much in the favor of our great people I'm also signing a directive invoking the defense production act to prohibit export of scares health and medical supplies by unscrupulous actors and profiteers the security and secretary the secretary of homeland security will work with the met to prevent the export of N. ninety five respirators surgical masks gloves and other personal protective equipment we need these items immediately for domestic use we have to have a but we've done really well with the purchase of items and you'll be hearing about that shortly we've already leverage the GPA to stop the hoarding and price gouging of crucial supplies under that authority this week the department of health and Human Services working with the department of justice took custody of nearly two hundred thousand and ninety five respirators one hundred and thirty thousand surgical masks six hundred thousand gloves as well as bottles many many many bottles then disinfectant sprays that were being recorded all of this material is now being given to health care workers most of it's sort of been given out and we've given a lot to New York a lot to New Jersey a lot to other places in addition to ensure that health care workers in New York have the protective equipment they need the federal government in the name of the department of defense is providing about eight point one million N. ninety five respirators department of defense and we've already given two hundred thousand of them to New York City where to Blasio who needed them very badly so we got to demand the plaza New York City they were very grateful eight point one million and was going to be increasing that number from eight point one million to more that's a lot of N. ninety five respirators today my team spoke with the CEO of are your health and the CEO of LCM say the two largest health systems in New Orleans they said they feel that they currently have enough ventilators I think a lot of people are going to have enough ventilators that masks and appreciate what we did and all of the things we've been doing with them working with them the CEO of here Warner Thomas who's really been fantastic I have to say it is the need for two hundred and thirty thousand surgical gowns and I instructed FEMA to deliver them tomorrow so to have the two hundred and thirty thousand that's real easy and I have your lives two hundred and thirty thousand surgical gowns they'll have them by tomorrow we're expanding the role of the armed forces in our response effort because no one is better prepared to win a war than the United States military and we are in a war the invisible enemy remember over nine thousand retired army medical personnel have answered their nation's call international boarding field hospitals and medical facilities all across the country like what I just told you that governor Cuomo requested we do something in Jabba's where we take it over and we're going to have that manned by the military because it's very tough to get people more people in the New York area so we're gonna have it manned by the military Javits center National Guard members have been activated to help states build new treatment centers and assist in the seamless distribution of medical supplies that includes National Guard the National Guard is assisting very strongly because the states were in many cases unable to have the delivery capability from warehouses and other places that we put the supplies so I've given approval to use the National Guard to various national guards in the different states then they're doing a fantastic job of not only protecting people but delivering material the army corps of engineers is assessed more than one hundred facilities in all fifty states and is rapidly building temporary hospitals and alternative care sites in many states in New York New Jersey Michigan Pennsylvania Arizona California Colorado Florida Illinois New Mexico Oregon Washington Wisconsin Ohio they do a lot of work and just those states plus additional being will be announced probably tomorrow but they're just doing some

We've really achieved great success in. And really I give a lot of the credit to the. Primary care teams because they've gotten these patients in an able to be at skit screens very quickly. Really the mission is to increase cancer screenings by one hundred and forty-one thousand individuals by twenty twenty two and this is really an important initiative for Moschner because we know that we can save lives by catching cancer early. And you're the parts about, you know, talk tips about talking to your physician, you know, like you said you had that thanksgiving dinner and things came up, and then you can go through the portal of at Ochsner, you can put that information. And then what happens after that? If you know of something, we're kind of conversation, would you have with your physician? Well, I think it's important to then, you know, first of all let your physician know about that family history. So that we can then talk about what screenings are appropriate for you and win should they be done. And also how often they should be done. And one of the things that's great is. It's a collaborative discussion between. Between the physician and the patient. So for example, breast cancer screening, our studies show that it can be done every one to two years, but for certain patients who might be at a higher risk. We might decide to do that every every year, and we may add other things other than just if you have a dense breast for advanced breast, we might add a breast MRI along with that on a personal note. I normally get all of my, you know, screenings and this year had a mammogram that was slightly abnormal. And it was a very scary process. Which gave me a lot of more insight as to when I'm sending people for cancer screenings, and I have a grandmother who had breast cancer. So I'm now know that I met higher risk. So it's something that I was always on top of. But will now be even more on top of of my screenings, very good. And dr. Leonard. You know, we talked about the things that you can do whether it's, you know, not to smoke, but what can we as the patient control? I mean, some things that we can do. In addition what about lifestyle things that may be beneficial as part of that collaboration with our health. Right. So we know that for certain cancers obesity is factor. So having a healthy lifestyle focusing on adding exercise into your daily routine. We also know that dietary factors play a role. So increasing fruits and vegetables, minimizing some of the processed foods can play a role as well. I think you know, that's something that again, we work with with Dr Smith, and and the primary care teams to really be at the forefront of directing patients correctly because often when they come to us the diagnosis has been made. And it's it's difficult to change some of those behaviors to also said way on on what Dr Smith said earlier, you also want to be at a place where you can have the support that you need across different services. So we also do have genetic counselors. I find that often family histories, get very. Complex, and.
