"All right, America, welcome back. All right, I just want to give an update on the U.S. House race for Colorado's let's see what this trick is this district three Lauren boebert is literally what they call in the media a statistical dead heat. She's got, she's actually down by 73 votes. This is bizarre. Maybe a little less actually now. Adam frisch, never heard of this guy. And he's in Colorado. He's got a 156,746 votes and he's a 50%. And she's at 156,682 votes. So she's currently behind by a hair. I mean, this is really, really something, and there's 99% of the precincts reported. Just to show you. This voter apathy that I'm talking about. I'm pretty sure that there is an appetite for the type of firebrand congresswoman that is Lauren boebert. 64 votes is the disparity here. And it fascinates me that people would drag their feet to go and vote when we have situations like this. Where a well-known congresswoman who's made lots of headlines is in a race this tight 64 votes. And why on earth people would say, oh, I don't want to use the mail in ballot. I don't want to use this. I'm going to wait till the very end. And allow your opponents to have a 70% lead in early voting. That is just to me crazy. I'm also guilty as charged. I happen to vote on election day. I am not registered for mail in ballots, so I didn't get a mail in ballot, and I walked into the thing, like I always have done, except for that one year that they forced me to vote by mail. It was by mail. They sent me a mail in ballot, and I dropped it off at a Dropbox at the county building. But other than that, I've always voted on election day, and I get the Spanish, the word is costume. The custom that we're accustomed to. But we can't play this game anymore. If that's what states have decided to do, either we got to change those laws to election day again, but if it's election week or election 50 days like it is in Pennsylvania, but early voting, 50 days long. Then guess what? You better rock those 50 days and be the man in those 50 days. Otherwise, we're going to be screwed. Let us go to Pittsburgh and check in with my man Ozzie. Hey Ozzy, how are you listening to the show? Are you on KDKA? Yes, among Katie KA, listen to it. You know, I knew when this election started with fetterman running. I knew all these Democrats were just going to stick would have been even though in my eyes he was a qualified to be a senator. And I feel that it is what it is. I mean, they get the jump start on us. They mail them ballots in. So the Republicans, we got to play their game. Yes, sir. I think we start mailing our 30 days in advance. That's right. Okay. And we'll play with their game. Now, my life has been horrible for the last two years. I had to pick up a second job. I had to pick a second job. I mean, food prices, everything. So I'm glad we're going to at least guarantee to win the house. Now, if we win the Senate, that's going to be better on the cake. Yes. All these people far left, they got four years to sit back and try to get their plane going with all their electric cars and killing our fuels. I mean, beyond imagining how they just want to roll on the American people's lives and now we could slow them down, okay? And if we win the Senate, then it's a whole different ball game. I think you're a 100% right, Ozzie. This is about and I think you used the right word slowing them down. Today I had, you know, again, I go for my morning coffee. My parents were born in Puerto Rico, but I have a thing for Cuban coffee, so I go to a Cuban coffee shop and the guy is a Cuban refugee. He's an citizen now, came about 20 years ago on a jet ski on a 5 hour ride from Havana Cuba to Key West Florida and at the time wet foot dry foot was the rule and he had one dry foot on American land and he was able to become a, you know, to apply to become a citizen and he did. And he's been here and he's done well in America. And what we argue about politics. And one of the things that we were talking about was how the, this back and forth and give and take with these policies. And he was saying, no, you know, it's just too contentious. And I'm saying, well, it's very contentious because that's how it has to be right now. When you have policies that are so disparate in nature, that people are one person will say, well, you've got to pay your fair share. But then when I talk to you, you're saying, no, I'm trying to eat, and I had to get an extra job just to eat, like I used to. And you're not the only one. A lot of people are doing that. You know? I get it. And I think most Americans get it. And we have to realize that people don't want to be in that position. So I think slowing them down is key, but the thing is, there's plenty of them. When you go to the capitol building, for example, and you go to the gift shop or you go to the ticket booth or you go to the security guard, maybe in the rotunda, I can almost guarantee you that every one of those employees is a Democrat. Because it's a highly saturated Democrat area, D.C.. It just is. They don't produce many Republicans. So, and I bring that up for the sake of saying, even when you gain some Republican seats in Congress, you're still dealing with the machinations of government, some called the deep state, the administrative state. That bureaucracy is there. And it doesn't necessarily serve you. And this is my argument with him all the time because he, I tell him, you got to be careful with the Democrats. And he's like, no, no, no, you're not giving them a chance. I'm like, oh boy, anyway, but that's my thought on that, Ozzie. We have to look

Yeah, really a lot to digest these days, Juliet. I mean, the pain is real out here, even though emerging Asia has sometimes been pointed to as being a little less troubled inflation a little bit different, less severe, strong foreign reserves. But right now, with the fed kicking things up a notch and global recession really becoming more a reality, we're seeing a lot of pressure on central bankers to not just slow walk interest rate hikes, but maybe go even harder, try to match the fed in some ways. Especially as we now see that enhanced threat of global recession. So obviously connected to that is the inflation story. Some in the region are seeing significant pressures ahead, Indonesia, where they're starting to ease off.

"And WBUR, I'm Robin young. And I'm Scott Tong. This is here and now. More than 2 million people are without power after hurricane Ian plowed into west Florida and exited out of the east. Thousands of people could be displaced long term. That's what the fema director told CNN, and now the national hurricane center says Ian, no tropical storm, could return to hurricane status later today. Before it makes landfall in South Carolina, a second time. More on that in a second, because in Florida, inland cities are preparing for new flooding. There's governor Ron DeSantis today. This storm is having broad impacts across the state and some of the flooding you're going to see in areas hundreds of miles from where this made landfall are going to set records. And that's going to obviously be. Jamie Carson is communications director for Sarasota county. That's in west Central Florida on the West Coast where Ian first hit we're hearing from the governor there that there's going to be flooding inland that we haven't even seen yet, but Jamie talk about where you are, the beautiful city of Sarasota that old architecture, what are you seeing? Hi, rod and so I would love to talk about the beautiful architecture our world renowned beaches, but right now our community in varying degrees has been hit catastrophically by hurricane Ian. Our county spans 725 square miles. With 30 of those being coastal, you're just listening to the governor, talk about imminent flooding. Momentarily, we are in the process of sending out emergency notifications regarding imminent flooding for our communities. So while hurricane Ian has passed the dangers continue, so we're balancing the emergency actions necessary right now, but also trying to start the recovery process. Well, how about that? I mean, you're there on the coast and you haven't seen fully the flooding yet is what you're saying. Exactly, Robin. This is going to be, as I mentioned, the hurricanes passed, but the dangers continue. We're sending out notifications. Sarah so county as

"Always tuning in. Well, today's episode is all about learning and taking learning to an innovative level. I sat down with my special guest, doctor Martha Saunders, who is the president of the university of west Florida. Doctor Saunders has been in higher education, serving for over three decades. And she's held leadership and academic positions at universities in Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Mississippi. And our discussion dove into what is innovative learning, what will university and innovation look like in the next 20 years. You want to know those challenges. And we also talked about some of her aha and uh oh learning moments. I could go on and on about doctor Saunders, but I think it's time that she shares her journey and her advice with you. Doctor Saunders, welcome, welcome to women worldwide. Thank you. It's great to have you here because I love education. Number one, innovative learning is such a great topic to dive into. But before we kind of go there, maybe you could just share, I always ask this first question. With three decades of being an academia, what led you down this path to academia and innovative learning? Well, I was a little late coming into the game. I did not come into higher Ed right out of undergraduate schools, matter of fact I was nearly 40. When I got my doctorate, but I had other things. I worked in industry. I worked for an advertising agency. I worked in the field of communication. And then, and then, you know, I had my family and all of the complications that go with juggling motherhood and things like that. And so one day, I was invited to teach as an adjunct. At a college where we were living, and I thought that sounded interesting. And got into that first class and discovered that I loved teaching, and I loved higher Ed, and I had learned enough in my experience that I had something real to share with the students. So that was the start, and I never looked back. Oh, that's wonderful. It's refreshing to hear that you had a communications background and that you found this passion just by being an adjunct. And being real, taking that into the classroom is so important, how are you, that notion of real and getting to the heart of learning? I've been reading about you in your bio and it talks about your university being Florida's innovation university. How is this happening? How are you doing that? I think it is real because it's very much part of our culture. Our university where one of the 12 universities in the state university system and we are about 52 years old, but it's always been very much part of the culture what I call the frontier spirit. And it may be because we're over here in central time. Now think about that. Florida is a big state. And but part of us. Are on central time. I don't know that. And we're not know that. Florida. Okay. And as our mayor says, we're the western gate to the sunshine state. Where thousands live like millions which they could. And. So we're over here and we're different. So I think in a lot of ways, we've always been challenged to figure things out. For example, if I have a statewide meeting, we always have to ask, is that Eastern Time or central time? And that may not explain it at all, but it is very much a part of our culture that I call the frontier spirit. And what we have done over the years is we really have empowered our employees and our students. To come up with new ideas and we don't rely on ceremony. If you've got a great ideas, shout it out, and more than likely we'll give it a try. So I think it's been very much part of the culture. And then when I came in as president that was something I absolutely wanted to encourage because I think it's a strength of the institution. Oh, definitely. Well, first of all, the word different if you are different, you can not be status quo. And you want learning to be different. You wouldn't want it to be status quo. You wouldn't want some cookie cutter type of education program. I think students today are really looking for that new frontier. And it's very much about learning. When you so Tapping into today's student, I'm sure challenges, and there's opportunities. But I would think even as you're attracting these students, let alone what you have in the classroom right now. But as you attract them, getting that message out about the new frontier and how you're going they can be empowered, how much of that is through the technology and the platforms where they like to hang out, we try to reach them where they are. And there are multiple sources for students. And every day they're inventing new ones for us. So one of the things I do try to do is to keep the narrative consistent, even though I may have heard myself say something a hundred times, not everybody here has heard the story. And so we keep the narrative simple and consistent, but we broadcast it over a variety of media. And social media, of course, now is so very important. We still do a lot of old fashioned stuff. Every now and then I do a lot of just handwriting of notes. Oh, I think that's lovely. I really do. And as we were recruiting students and maybe for some of our top scholarships and they haven't committed, sometimes a note from the president that says, we just can't wait to see you on campus in the fall. And it makes a difference. So we go old school. We go new school. And whatever, whatever works, but I think the secret also is to make sure you're saying the same thing no matter what medium you're using. No, that's a really good point. And I always said, even with social media coming on like a lion and all the choices that you have to communicate, if something's working, if you have a method and whether you call it old school or traditional, if it's not broken, don't try to fix it. Use it that handwritten note.

The issue is what kind of assistant. And he was a great assistant. Had a great reputation and I think Mark stoops his smart enough to know. I'm just not bringing somebody in because he's my brother. He's bringing somebody in because he's got a wealth of knowledge as a hey, thank you very much for the call. Jack is up next in Pensacola. Hey Jack. Yeah, hey, Paul. First, I want to say, you know, you get some real nut jobs calling in every once in a while and I hope you don't ever take any of that personally. You are the fairest and most intelligent line about college sports that I've ever gotten anywhere near. But again, anyway. Yeah, sure. Click a little story in a question. I finished my swim the other day and got walked into the sonnet sat down and then a guy walked in and he looked like a football player at the university of west Florida and I said, you look like a football player who said, yeah, and I said, man, it's too bad that quarterback Austin Reed is transferring. You're doing the portal. Man, I've heard that guy is just tremendous. I have a fantastic athlete and he goes, I'm Austin Reed. I didn't even recognize. That is extremely embarrassed. I'm sitting there bragging on this guy to his face. Not even knowing that he was the guy, but anyway, I have a question for you. I don't know if you know that much about him, but do you have a sense of where he might be headed at all? I don't. I didn't want to I am aware of that. Yeah. He has big and strong and yes, sir no, sir. I mean, just a fantastic kid. And anyway, I was thinking Brian Kelly would really could use him at LSU or lane kiffin at all mess anyway. For those who don't know, I mean, we're talking about in some ways a generational quarterback here. And I think the old missed suggestion may be the best one because I really do lane kiffin has such a great eye for quarterbacks. He led on it all or when you were talking about it. You know, I was so nervous because I didn't want him to reveal something to me that, you know, he didn't feel comfortable revealing. He did mention on this. And then he kind of set up something like there might be somebody there though. He needs to step in and play right away. They just got a player from southern cow that could, and again, you have to make a smart decision, but that is a fantastic story though. That really is. It was hilarious. Anyway, thank you, Paul. Appreciate it. Elliot is up next. Hey there. Hey, Paul. Thank you for taking my call. You mentioned that journalism was about seeking the truth. And I was wondering if you saw the Netflix series about Colin Kaepernick and if you think he was truly blackballed in the NFL and what you think the real truth is about his story. I have not seen it yet. What was your impression after watching it? I can tell you my eyes were opened. I was shocked. I think what I felt about Colin before I saw his series was much from the media. I didn't know a lot about him. I have so much more respect for him now. And I truly believe he's been blackballed out of the NFL. And I think that you can put Black Lives Matter on your sidelines, but it's more about how you treat people, not what you display. Well, you've given me something to do. I will definitely check it out. I appreciate the suggestion. Thank you for the call. We are heading to the final hour. It's been a fun show. We'll continue more phone calls, and you can call us now at 855-242-7285. Keith Dunham will also join us in the final hour, the author and historian. We're back after this. Hey, this is Charlie Arnold who, along with Elle Duncan and Kimberly a Martin host first take her take available wherever you get your podcasts. So here's our take on the winter games as a part of the moments that matter series presented by super cuts. The smarter, easier way to get a haircut. It is not just any haircut, it's super cuts. First take her take. It's so funny when we talk about age. And it's almost like, you know, when, as women, when you're pregnant and it's like, if you're 35 or older, it's like a geriatric. You're like the whole language around age. Obviously with the Olympics, it's pretty neat. As somebody who is just removed from her 30s, it's very cool to see these old ladies getting it done to your point. Their whole ramp up is very specific to when they're supposed to be peaking and when their body's supposed to be peaking. It's just akin to like when you're training for a marathon, I hear. God knows I would never run one of those. I can't even run to the end of the driveway and back without being out of breath. You know what? I would want to do that. Would you answer marathon? If I could, if I can 6 years, if I could like tackle something like that. You don't need 6 years for that. You need a year. And the way my stamina set up girl, yes, I zoom needs 6 years to run around the entire New York City region. Yes, I do. I need that. I think it's incredible. There's some people, they're professional marathoners. And they just run marathon after marathon after marathon, and it is unbelievable and something I would never in my life want to do, but props. Oh, no, I would be the LA rams of marathon running. I would push all my chips into the middle of the table. This is the year I'm running marathon, and then I would never do it. And then you retire. I'm out. I'm out of champions. That's it. First take her take. That's moments that matter presented by supercuts. Supercuts is the perfect way to get a haircut. If you're someone who doesn't have time for a haircut, like looking good, but don't like wasting time, you should get a super cut. Fitting in a haircut to a fully packed schedule is tough, but super cuts makes it easy breezy. Just check in on these super cuts app or walk in for.

"Of all sound to me a lot like common sense. Yeah right like you shouldn't have to write legislation. You shouldn't have to have reformed for the education department or the police department to know that a parent or legal guardian should be president whenever a miner's interrogated by an officer. You also should probably only call police when a student presents an imminent threat of significant harm to another person in weren't correct and we see that a lot to people are just pee. A lot of people love to call the police. You know their neighbors pissing them off. They'll just call the cops make something up or have the cops go harass them. They don't want to put my fridge. Frozen the drive through they call nine one one. Come over everything and it's it's just a complete abuse of what's supposed to be an emergency assistance thing. We'll think about this for a minute because what you're actually doing when you call the police you're requesting armed individuals generally with attitudes because they feel disk because the police so the public perception of police is horrible. Gee i wonder why because of the police. No it's an image thing. Do you think this group of people is responsible for their own public image. So yeah you're sending armed people with an attitude to wherever it is you're calling them to and if you expect good things to happen as a result of that why i hate to tell you.

"Thank you is when the latino. What's going on especially in florida campuses which is like shocking to me Our universities actually offering to give away free tuition for a year of your proved vaccinated. They're giving away like xbox systems and stuff like that and it came to our attention. When we had our first like not really official turning-point meeting we have a neural and one of our most popular spaces of our library probably the size of the mural behind you and it actually is people sitting and like with their fists up behind a burning building and there's little beyond signs in like police in like full gear and then there's police behind Like bars like holding its artsy. They're trying to make it. You know what side. I'm trying to but anyway in the schools university of west florida and it also has lady liberty portrayed as a black woman holding a snake in the air instead of a torch. I have pictures. You'd like to see i'd love to see it. That sounds hard for the course so. Let me just understand this. So they're subsidizing students get the vaccine there actually if you get back get vaccinated and improve for some there and get back to the on campus. You can be entered to win tuition first semester. Yeah i hear a lot about this first of all this. This whole thing is so ridiculous. The whole conversation around it. I don't care about your medical status. Okay i don't care if you're vaccinated or unvaccinated. I'm not gonna ask you if you're hiv or not in fact if you do. I hope you find some help. But this idea that. I'm gonna ask for your intimate medical histories creepy and weird and wrong. I've publicly declared my medical decisions. Because i want to try to make sure people know that it's okay to say no to the regime. I've decided not to get vaccinated. And i will not get vaccinated regardless of social pressure thrown at me and if you decide to get vaccinated. I'm not going to make you feel bad. I don't know your medical history with your doctors telling you i also can't stand talibanism. I hate it. And i hate all of this kind of social pressure. Psi ops operations. I'm seeing on television of people trying to shame you into it. You're going to be a mass murderer. You're going to first of all. Let's just don't do the facts. Sixty percent of the people that are getting monoclonal antibody lifesaving treatment here in the state of florida are fully vaccinated. They just had a massive outbreak of cova nineteen. I'm sorry the virus at duke university and it's basically an entirely vaccinated campus and so we get criticized as being anti vaccine. That is ridiculous.

I thought i grew up in a country. Where was my body my choice. You can make whatever decision. What would your body's long as harm somebody else. That was a lie was alive.

"Done in show people. The the real benefit of what a democratic majority can do when its power I think the the white house has to be strong. Joe biden has to be strong. And i think the economy has to continue to make progress and i think it's a lot of rocket science. I think it is it is it really is focused on getting things done things done. And having those tangible results that impact and help families in In in a in a world with a lot of uncertainty yeah. Let's leave rocket science to billionaires who are bored and want. wanna go into space. You're right this is good billionaires going into space but we're glad about that another time but here's the thing passing the infrastructure. Bill and passing. Reconciliation is not any guarantee that democrats can deal with all the structural and historic headwinds. That they're going to face going into twenty twenty two but not passing them is an almost guarantee for defeat. And that's something. I'm sure pelosi and her team are as we said earlier. Banging every single day gonna be tough. Amanda asks how do we find a joe biden damn florida and clear the field for them to run against a santa's do you think any of the currently announced candidates can win and bonus points. We get bonus points murphy. How much national coverage will race get. And what's the over under on the total donations. Oh all right well number one rhonda santa's to governor who's I think very focused on running for president republican primaries Like a lot of governors numbers of taken to drop during cova two point. Oh and he's the epicenter so he's in a real race now. There's democratic primary. Between charlie crist who is a congressman from tampa area. Former republican used to be a governor originally ran for statewide office as chain gang. Charlie he wanted to chain gangs back and then after he kinda got blown up in the republican party by young candidate marco rubio in a primary charlie's back as a democrat now and he's leading in the early polling but not by a ton he is again from west florida. You asked about clearing the way hard to do in mega state because people have regional basis. And he's kind of a west care he's always been tampa bay guy. Charlie has over in democrat vote. Rich broward county fort. Lauderdale north of miami Nikki freed who's the young dynamic. Some say too controversial state agriculture commissioner. Which doesn't mean she's at well known but she's running to and she's kind of a flamboyant personality and she just you know behind chris but not that far depending on which paul so you got a real primary there either. One of them at their the democratic nominee will be competitive against to sanches if his troubles continue but both are target rich environment. Charlie because he's been everything and nikki free because she hasn't. Roy played successfully on the big media. Stage there as far as money is concerned and i would call neither joe by democrat though charlie is probably a little closer to that that arch type and again. Charlie is known to be able to reinvent himself and a minute or two when needed. So he'll definitely try to do that if he's the nominee The money will be the technical phrase would be a shitload of I wonder if we get the little easy now. An apple for that of cash. i can't try to do in a number of two sanchez's numbers stay load over. One hundred mil Maybe significantly more spent and yeah the media. Because it's florida you know. And by the way the king because he's running for president while yeah. Yeah santa's is you know there's all kinds of in nikki is kind of telegenic and she'll be she'll be copied for the newspapers. Finally they'll keep an eye. An independent candidate gizmo wexler. Heard it here first because got a great name is ninety consultant. And nobody's gonna vote for him. But i love the name gizmo wexler. Yeah it's good bumper sticker two quick points to add tears murphy. Recent poll a few days ago actually had nikki freed slightly ahead of chris in In the primary though a huge number of folks that are undecided. I would say party to run on your half of all of us. My guess is we've all been involved in primaries that have been debilitating for eventual nominee but also primaries that have been very helpful for the eventual nominee and. I think how this race is run and one will say a lot about whether.

Climate change impacts are showing up worldwide. Our neighbors in Cuba, sit just ninety miles south of Key West Florida last week, I visited this beautiful island for the first time and I shared coffee with famed Cuban meteorologist Jose, ruby era. I learned about Cuba climate change and surprisingly Cuban coffee. That is we yes, please have some coffee Jose. I'll never be a PHD. I'm the former director of the national forecast center east for majority. That's the natural west have is the set time for many years. Also, I've been presenting weather in Cuban radio and television host say Grazia mature goose still. It was a pleasure to talk with you today here in Havana at the hotel Nacional when we talk about climate change in Cuba. What are the biggest impacts that Cuba is seen from climate change so far? Well, the because he banked is the raising up to she lever. Now, does he live house reason ferry vice Timmel's in the last thirty years thing pictures have risen also sealed point nine Chechen degree about one degree treasures on the Lincoln shown are the coastlines that long Cuban coastline is extremely vulnerable. To storm surge. Hurricane irma's. Search pushed several feet of water into the streets of Havana. Dr ruby era is one of the world's premier experts on hurricanes. Any told me his big concern is the growing link between warmer, oceans and more rapidly. Intensifying hurricanes part of his job on Cuban TV raising Cuba's climate change. I q what's the awareness level of climate change in Cuba with the people? Well, this White House not only in Asia climate change, everything that has to be with winning. Diamond because we in Daly broadcast for television radio. We also teach believed by little people. I wish awareness and knowledge. Even as we traveled outside of Havana climate remained, the topic of conversation. I'm just north of Trinidad in Cuba at topa, date tapes. It's a mountainous area where they grow coffee and our tour guide nasc- is telling us about how climate change is affecting coffee production in Cuba. Well, what is happening is that it's raining when it's not supposed to be the rainy season or the stood ri- when it's not supposed to be the dry season. And just to give you an example, the coffee plants they used to bloom like three times in a year. And then at the end they had a really good crop. Yeah. But now, they are blooming only one or twice the farmers are lucky, you know, because if it rains when the plants are having their flowers, the flowers hall, and then at the end, there are no beans, and that is happening, you know, with the coffee plantations so many years ago, the farmers they could use the same plant life for twenty twenty five years now that is not happening anymore. So now the maximum time, they they leave their plans at the patience is like ten years talking with Cubans like, our guide nasc-, I sense a high level of. Climate change awareness in Cuba. There's also something I learned back at lunch in Havana. I heard how Cuban's see Dr ruby era as their weather God hosts say was traveling in two thousand seventeen as hurricane Irma approached listen to restaurant owner, ROY describe how Cuban's missed Jose's weather reports on TV.
