Trump, Biden Campaigns Unveil Bold New Mouth Sounds
"There's just four months left until the twenty twenty election and both Democrats and Republicans are ramping up messaging to make their case to the American public. Before November third while many have already chosen their preferred candidate in this especially polarized political landscape, there are still millions of undecided voters waiting for more information on each side's coughs, hard swallows, Lips Max, and throat clears here to discuss the mouth sounds at the forefront of each campaign is OPR. OPR political correspondent Dirk. Mullins, good morning. Dirk I leslie it sounds like both campaigns are beginning to ramp up ahead of this month conventions. That's right this week. The Joe Biden campaign released. The first of dozens of new mouth sounds they say constitute the backbone of the former vice presidents platform based on what we know from his recent interviews Democrats as a whole are eager for fresh new teeth, clatters and Boulder Saliva swishing take a listen. These are certainly new sounds from Biden. But I'm still hearing the broad Fleming us that makes them appealing to centrist Democrats as well as moderate Republicans. What about trump? Well, we're all familiar with President, trump's lowered wet displays of Brash burps, slobber and stuff to Sinus, rasps that have made him. So popular with his base and it looks like not much has changed for twenty twenty. So while the president is firing back against Biden, he's using the same inflammatory gurgles spit ups. We've come to expect here's trump speaking at a White House luncheon just two days ago. Certainly as wet, but the real question is, will it work for that? We'll have to wait until November right now. Biden, is leading trump in some key states and trump may need to soften his position on swirling coughed up snot around in his mouth if he wants to maintain his already tenuous hold on white suburban women, many of whom say Biden's overly moist inhales better aligned with their values, right. But our democratic leaders concerned that Biden's middle of the road mouth sounds could act as a double edged sword appealing to the middle while pushing away progressives who don't want more of the same that. That is a concern while Biden has a long history of neutral centrist mouth sounds his team hopes these new swishes and swallows will entice voters farther on the left who demand dryer sticky. Your mouth sounds and do progressively agree it appears so Bernie. Sanders, drew in huge numbers of young progressives who preferred his brand of spittle flecked tongue slaps and cracked lip wheezing. But with Bernie out of the race, now Biden's team is seeking to make space for these voters by taking on some of Bernie's mouth sounds just this week. The Biden campaign added this Fleming snort from burn himself to their website. You can really hear his lips parting, the sea ever drink water. It's unclear though he's publicly announced. He would be willing to drink water and Abidin Administration. Well, all I can say is I'm so sick of all these nasty sounds playing on my TV, I can't wait till this election is over share. But then before you know it, it's already time for the first mouth sounds twenty, twenty, four. Oh, boy, you're telling me. Thanks Turk. Dirk.

How Tear Gas Affects The Body And Why It's Dangerous During This Pandemic
"Tear gas. I started seeing all the reports of law enforcement using tear-gas all over the country all. Julius protest after protest. I saw the photos of the the white smoke coming up. Videos of protesters, desperately washing out there is. People are choking gasping for air. Volga. tear-gas clearly makes it hard to breathe. Very Soul what bench march from whatever was an I just thought. What exactly's tear-gas. It doesn't seem like a good idea to us in the middle of a respiratory pandemic. Back streets as protesters picking up some of those canisters. Throw them back at police. Unprecedented Street. We actually have any science about whether it's safe or not. So Lisa set out to answer those questions. That's when I started talking to researchers and scientists and really getting a sense that. The combination of the way that tear gas is being used in these protests, the huge quantities the frequency with which it's used the way police are using Ed is really a cause for concern. Today on the show why using tear-gas could be especially dangerous right now during a respiratory pandemic, and how some law enforcement tactics could be making its impact, even worse I'm reporter Emily Quang, and this is short wave, the daily science podcast from NPR. So as far as I understand, tear gas is a term that's broadly applied to describe a set of chemicals right, and these are liquid chemicals in. It's not actually a gas right, so the term tear gas is confusing because different people use them in different ways, scientifically speaking tear-gas refers to several different chemicals that make your skin burn that make it hard to breathe. It's really painful stinging. The way that the CDC refers to tear gas and the way that law enforcement refers to tear gas sometimes they're referring to a broader set of chemicals, but in general, yes, tear gas is actually a tiny liquid droplets, and my story focused on the most common type of tear gas used by law enforcement in the US, and that is a chemical called. See US and see us. How is it designed? How does it work so it's designed to cause pain and. The description I got from a scientist. WAS THAT CIS? Gas triggers a particular pain receptor in your body. It's the same receptor that's triggered when you eat with Sabi, but it's much more powerful. If you take that stinging sensation from eating with Sabi and multiply it by up to a hundred thousand fold that is how much more powerful CS is. It sounds incredibly disorienting. How of those you've interviewed described hit by tear gas. What that experience was like? Yeah? I I mean I. Personally am very lucky and have never been exposed to tear gas, but the various protesters I interviewed. They describe this incredible feeling of fear and helplessness. Your eyes are burning. Your nose is running. Your mouth hurts, and you have trouble breathing, so you can't see you're in pain, and you're having trouble catching a breath and you feel like you're choking. This one protester I interviewed was part of this protest in Philadelphia that got a lot of media coverage, and at one point she was in a part of this highway that ran partially underground, so what was the stark semi-enclosed space and with tear-gas got in there? Everyone panicked. You know they couldn't see everything hurt and they were trying to run away, but there was really nowhere to run, and she said that she actually feared for her life. She feared that in the panic she would get trampled and she did actually get bruised all over because people were stopping her as they were running away. So as you look to tear gas from a medical standpoint, what it does to the body and one of the things that you discovered is that tear? Gas has a big impact on the lungs. Can you tell me about that? Right so one of the things scientists told me is that when you inhaled tear gas? You're going to start wheezing and coughing and that means that your lungs are working hard to try and get rid of this. Tear gas, so it doesn't have the same amount of strength or the same reserve to fight off any additional infections you might get and that could make people who've inhaled tear gas more susceptible to getting the corona virus. Particularly, if they already have asthma or some other respiratory condition, because they are already at higher risk to catching infections, like influenza or the common cold, and so the fear is that tear? Gas could trigger an asthma attack, or further weakened the body's ability to fight off Covid, nineteen rights and the tear gas. It also weakens the demonstrators protections against the krona virus, because it changes the way people are moving around in a crowd, it creates chaos. Yes, and this is one of the things that public health professionals are worried about is a lot of protesters are doing the responsible thing by wearing masks during the protest, but as As soon as you hit with tear gas, you're trying to breathe as much as possible because you're gasping for air and at that point instinctively you're gonNA. Take off the mask to try and get some fresh air and when you do that, you're going to be coughing because you're trying to get rid of the tear gas in your lungs, and we all know that coughing is one of the things that spreads cove it, so there's a lot of fear that people who have the corona virus spider as dramatic as they're coughing while trying to deal with tear-gas that they're spreading the disease among other protesters in the crowd From your reporting looking at protests around the country I'm wondering to what patterns you've seen with. How tear gas is being used by law enforcement. We've seen it used in different ways, but a pattern that we've seen is that. The police are often using a lot of tear gas. They are using it in quick succession, and it's that combination of the sheer volume of tear gas, and sometimes it's being used in situations when the protesters are trapped in an area and can't get away like we've seen in Philadelphia and that really compounds the dangers and risks of tear gas right, so it's not just that it's being used. It's how it's being used, and how often right so? Tear gas comes in a variety of forms, and there are different tactics and tools that police can use. They can spray it from cans. They can shoot canisters filled with tear gas, and there are some manufacturers for example that will sell grenades that not only does it expel tear-gas there's also bright lights, loud noise to further cause confusion and make the protesters tried to disperse. There's also a type of product called a triple

Chlorine gas released at Second Battle of Ypres - April 22, 1915
"The Day was April. Twenty Second Nineteen fifteen. The Germans released chlorine gas during the second battle of Abra marking the first effective use of poison. Gas On the western front chemical weapons have been used for hundreds of years at the end of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth treaties and declarations began acknowledging the issue of poison gases by forbidding the use of poisons in Warfare The Hague conventions of eighteen ninety nine and one thousand nine hundred seven for instance forbade the use of poison and poisoned weapons. But this rule was violated in the first world. War World War. One is sometimes referred to as the chemists war because of the role chemicals and technology played in the conflict chlorine phosgene and mustard gas all caused many deaths and injuries during the war the production and deployment of these gases posed a health threat to combatants civilians and people involved in their manufacturing processes once the war began. Germany put a lot of effort into researching and producing these chemical agents. German chemist. Fritz Harbor helped develop Germany's poison gas program harbor headed the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electro Chemistry he was also given an army captain and led the Chemistry Section at the Ministry of war and Berlin helping coordinate the production of ammonia needed in the war many people condemned harbor for his role in chemical warfare though he won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in nineteen eighteen for the synthesis of ammonia from its elements Swedish pharmacist. Carl Wilhelm Shula discovered chlorine back in the late seventeen hundreds as a gas. Chlorine is a greenish yellow color. And it is two and a half times heavier than air. Though chlorine is used in some household products and in drinking water it can be used as a poisonous gas chlorine gas stays close to the ground in areas without wind and spreads rapidly. It is very toxic to humans when a person breeds chlorine gas. It reacts with Moist Tissues like the eyes throat and lungs to form. Acid inhaling low levels can cause I scan an airway irritation as well as a sore throat and cough exposure to higher levels of chlorine gas can cause chest tightness wheezing shortness of breath and broncos spasm if a person is severely exposed could get Pulmonary Edema. A condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs. Chlorine gas is easy to produce and handle harbor turns to chlorine gas for use in chemical warfare. The French launched tear-gas attacks against the Germans early. In World War One and early in Nineteen fifteen the Germans fired thousands of shells filled with the irritant xylitol bromide at Russian troops blew off. In this case the weather was cold and the chemical could not vaporize to pose any threat to the Russians but on the evening of April Twenty. Second Nineteen fifteen during the second battle of.

Gig economy workers have their own coronavirus struggles
"With us a special guest. Derek are TREBEK GIG economy reporter Darren you wrote about the challenges that GIG workers face getting support like sick pay during this time you break down the situation for us. Yeah so at the beginning of the month in March before the virus had spread so far across the United States be Uber and other Gig economy companies had promised workers that if they were diagnosed positive with Kobe. Nineteen that they could get two weeks sick pay but knowing how hard it is to get tests that that was really near impossible for most workers And so on March fifteen the company all the companies changed and said all they needed was a doctor's letter to telling them that they needed to self quarantine because they're exhibiting symptoms of cove in nineteen Which was bigger in a lot of GIG? Economy groups helped to push that policy into place. The thing is well at James Yet. The back it up for for our listeners will refer to Gig economy you may companies. We're talking about here. So the the big big one is uber and left. And then there's also instant card post mates DOOR DASH. So all of those delivery services caviar But the ones that are really kind of leading the movement with policies and everything Our burn left and GIG workers under the law are classified as independent contractors rather than employees which is significant. Because it means that they don't have health insurance sick leave Unemployment they're not qualified for and the companies aren't Obligated to provide protection to the workers because they are considered their own businesses right and this is this has been a longstanding problem. I think a longstanding concern for the economy workers. But it's really gotten the CORLISS has really made this a much bigger problem for them right. Bay because GIG workers are now having to take time off. And that means they're not getting paid in a lot of them. Don't have health insurance so when we're having a public health crisis it really shows how dire their situation is. You talked with a couple of these folks. A couple of drivers lift drivers that he told me some of their stories like particular. I think you know the one one newburgh driver ended up having to drive potentially to cove nineteen positive Writers talk about that because that was kind of a horrifying SORTA here. Yeah yeah so so yeah and just to finish without saying earlier that the companies said that the GIG workers only need a doctor's letter to corn down to get the paid leave every single person. I talked to said it was either not possible to get the sick leave or they had to jump through a lot of hoops to get this sick leave. You know I don't know if this is who were making it difficult or are not. Just DUBAR BIOLOGY GIGA company companies. Or they're just this is also new and they're trying to get their processes in place and they're having running against glitches and problems in the system. None of the GIG economy companies really wanted to give me much information about that when I spoke to them though yet. It's these workers There was there's one man who's a diver into San Francisco thy spoke to. He's sixty so he's theoretically vulnerable group and he started exhibiting symptoms two weeks ago so he was kind of on little frontlines of this in two days in a row he had passengers who said they thought they had cove in nineteen. The first passenger said that he had just gotten back from Taiwan and he said outright. I have Kobe eighteen and when the driver told me the story he said that when he heard that he just froze yet he's like I'm in the car with this guy and there was nothing I could do in the weird part was sound like you just took a an uber. He didn't take an Uber Pool. Like he he actually shared ride with somebody else. It wasn't just the driver. They took effect. He invited somebody else. Who's writing exactly? And then and he this. All these details are my story but he dropped off that may on first and then he jumped off the woman who was the second passenger and the driver got out gave her hand. Sanitizer told her she should call the doctor. Who knows and then he deplaned his car. I'm just trying to put it behind him. 'cause you know to nose but then the next morning he was driving again and he got this passenger whose destination was hospital who was coughing and said he was coughing up blood and that's why he had to go to the hospital and that he thought he had Kobe. Nineteen and it was the following day that this driver start to develop symptoms and his symptoms. Are I talked to him on the phone? He had to take a lot of breaks. He was coughing wheezing. It took many days actually to even schedule a time to talk. 'cause he was he just didn't feel well right right as we talk about some of the challenges you face because he you know he did actually get attached right yeah. He was able to test his his doctors in his public health. His county public health officials were on both. He did one of the drive through tests which was at least ten days ago now and he still hasn't gotten the results which is something that a lot of people are talking about. The results are buried delayed so he still doesn't now if he tested positive. His doctors seemed to think he has it. You know but there's no saying if he does so with UBER. He started his Tussle with them before they had expanded their policy to include just a doctor's note so at the beginning they like no we don't you can't get it unless you get a positive diagnosis. Then they change their policies and the and he got on twitter and he just did a whole series of tweets at the company's CEO at the head. The head lawyer for the company saying this is you know how to survive. How are we supposed to do this? He didn't get a response from the company but eventually two thousand dollars appeared in his account. yes he was like a little bit of a a damage control there from movers part. Yeah another driver.

Coronavirus: Ukraine protesters attack buses carrying China evacuees
"Thousands of members of a south Korean religious sect linked to a surge in cases of the coronavirus have been told to self quarantine hundreds say they have symptoms of covert nineteen and the impact of that outbreak continues to grow and is being felt well indirectly at least in Ukraine dozens of protesters in the central part of a region if attacked buses carrying evacuees from China from coronavirus hit areas the evacuees were being brought to the hospital where they will be held in quarantine for fourteen days we can free now to be this is Jenna Fischer in cats hi Joe no more do we know about the incident yeah I was there all of yesterday in this village of novih send Jari where the evacuees as we call them what brought eventually yesterday evening I'm now is that as basically the local villages tried that down this to stop them being being taken to a sanatorium health facility in that town that was a pretty angry seeds fall as a some rocks were thrown I'm pretty nasty stuff the message from the villages was pretty much that they don't trust the assurances that they'd been given by the Ukrainian authorities that everyone had been tested at least once and that no one had been infected and there was no risk to their health and that they were extremely unhappy that they were being brought to serve that quarantine in their village it also perhaps a lack of faith in the health services the fact that you know if they all way safely in quarantine presumably that might not be that much risk to people nearby it is it is to do with that I think there is a broader issue about education about this information that way emails going round yesterday we see which are paid to to sow the seeds of distrust in the authorities emails which eventually turned out to be the the fake so I think that is particularly in these rural areas people are particularly susceptible to these kind of room is which which sweep very rapidly and I think you have to put in the broader context of Ukraine being a former Soviet country where the trust in what they get told by authorities is pretty low if you go back to the nineteen eighties of course Ukraine was the site to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster famously people were told the weeks that it was safe there they did need to panic and of course it turned out to be an absolute disaster for everyone who lived I need that power station yeah I'm perhaps in an effort to attempt to restore some of that trust the health minister is saying she's going to be joining the Iraqi wheezing quarantine would run her ministry by Scott I mean it's a PR stunt but is a pretty good one is not yeah I love the the Iranian government are trying that don this to to reassure people we have statements from the president yesterday we had the interior minister and the prime minister heading to this small small town and then the statement from the health ministers Arianna skillets guy saying on Facebook these people are a compatriots we live in one country and have to take care of their health and safety so yes the government is going out of their way to try and reassure people all the indications are that this sort of fresh point yesterday has now died down somewhat I think the government and that really has to now convinced people that they will do everything by the book to make sure that there's no possibility of any spreading all that this you that you crave might possibly get its first case of the corona virus as a result of these evacuations and and how many people are we talking about about both in terms of the number of activities and potentially others still in China look what they've done in this evacuation is there were about forty five Ukrainians about twenty other nationalities who are brought on the flight and everybody who they came in contact with either on the plane or even on the buses yesterday have been put into this quarantine period so close to a hundred people on now in this facility and they will be for the next two weeks we've not had any word yet as to whether there will be any further evacuations from who had I think one particularly sad thing that emerge this morning was a video from a hospital in western Ukraine the town of live they've web people with singing the national anthem that's doctors nurses medical stuff singing the national anthem because they've been told that none of the kind of coronavirus evacuees we're going to be brought that so it was for them a moment of celebration I think for many of us who who committed here to the values of the medical profession of looking off the people in the profoundly depressing to to see that Fisher took his life from

Why Do People Still Use Fax Machines?
"In eighteen. Seventy eight Alexander. Graham Bell filed patent for a history altering device called the electronic telephone. But what you may not know. Is that the patent for another amazing communication tool. The simile machine or fax machine was filed by Scottish. clockmaker named Alexander Bain three decades earlier. That's right fax machines predate even rudimentary telephones and with a cockroach-like likes survivability that makes very little sense from an evolutionary standpoint. The fax machine lives on beeping and wheezing up sheets of paper. The world over for example vaccine is big in Japan even today about half of Japanese families use a fax machine in their homes. The question is why to understand. Dan Helps to know a bit about the facsimile machines place in history. Although the technology had been around for decades it wasn't until the nineteen thirty nine New York world's fair that fax machines. I seized mainstream recognition in the United States there attendees stood slack jawed in amazement as they viewed images and text arriving from around the the world at eighteen sheets permit. The machines were simply too expensive for everyday use though even by nine hundred eighty two one standalone fax machines sold for a whopping twenty thousand dollars far too pricey even for most businesses much less individual consumers. It wasn't until later in the nineteen eighties that the cost of the machines dropped to a point that businesses and offices found them useful notably documents that required legal signatures copied signatures. As you can probably guess were a source of controversy for years as legal professionals argued about the validity of documents that arrived via phone lines however as court after court confirmed armed the validity of faxed signatures doctors lawyers financial gurus and other professionals began to rely on faxes to transmit paperwork all over the place thus thus entrenched in the workflow and minds of countless millions of people the late nineteen eighties saw dramatic rise. In the number of fax machines. America had only around three hundred thousand contraptions in the middle of the eighties by nine hundred. Eighty nine there were more than four million. The Fax Machines Heyday was at hand. They even featured prominently in pop up culture. The one thousand nine thousand nine Scifi comedy back to the future part two explorers a future where the mic fly family had a fax machine in every room so the facts in process is one that billions of people have ingrained into their consciousness place assigned document in the machine punching the destination phone number. Hit the green button and minutes later. Your paperwork is in the hands of a colleague on the other side of town or on the other side of the world assuming that the fax machine has paper the cartridge is not out of ink and nothing has gotten stuck in the transmission transmission process but in the mid nineteen ninety s another history changing technology exploded and use the internet which provided people with ways aged instantly. Send text pictures and documents without these of paper with the coming of widespread e mail. It seemed that fax machines were doomed. Only they weren't aren't in two thousand seventeen study from market intelligence firm. IDC showed that the four major industries that are still using faxes Those industries being manufacturing factoring healthcare finance and government all predicted increased use of faxing over the next two years averaging twenty five percent increase. So why is that hat. Faxing is familiar technology that people trust the complexities of the Internet and its many offshoots technologies along with endless headlines about hackers spyware aware viruses and data breaches create in many people's minds. A sense that the web just isn't secure. In addition government policies still encouraged faxes and legal processes like discovery of evidence. Lean heavily on paper documents. Doctors backs prescriptions and private documents and patient records fax machines. are a habit and it's a habit that is hard because it's a simple low tech interoperable system that anyone can use just a few minutes of training also fax x machines like the aforementioned roaches are evolving with the times the people surveyed by. IDC said that the biggest reason for the increase in faxing was axing was now integrated. I graded with email as digital faxing and so was easier to use A. We spoke by email. Todd Johnson DR at Access Family Medicine in Lincoln Nebraska. Aska he said `I office notes prescriptions lab data orders and consultation requests affects anything else. It's requested I would email just as easily but I don't have a general email account to send the requested information to typically usually. I'm only provided with fax number to return requested information. Johnson Johnson says that the newest generation of digital faxing mixes workflow fairly easy quote. I don't use a feed and fax paper machine. I can facts from any of my computers tablet habit smartphone. I use them because I'm requested to use them by other facilities they're easy to use and now electronically configured into my phone system. I just drag and drop a pdf into the fax x Portal and away.

Can 'Hypoallergenic' Dogs Still Trigger Allergies?
"With the appeal of all cuddles and no allergic reactions. HYPOALLERGENIC allergenic dogs. Seem like the obvious choice for animal lovers who are somehow sensitive to those wet noses and wagging tails but are these hypoallergenic dogs. Too good to be true. Do the truth is many specific breeds of pups. Touted as hypoallergenic. Don't shed for. And because of this trait some breeders promise. These dogs won't trigger or any allergies at all except they can so what gives. It's not actually a dogs for that's responsible for humans allergic reactions. It's what stuck on on. The further causes our sneezing. Asthma attacks people who are allergic to dogs and cats too. For that matter are triggered by protein in the animal's saliva and urine brin that sticks to the animals for and skin when a dog sheds fur and Dander or dry skin flakes. That allergy inducing protein is released into the air. That's why nonshedding breeds tend to lessen allergic reactions in humans. No shedding means fewer of those allergy. Inducing proteins are released but no dog breed entirely hypoallergenic. It's marketing term more than a medical term but while hypoallergenic may be fluff term. Having a nonshedding breed is totally helpful for people that have allergies. And who want a dog to the American Kennel Club reports that many less allergenic breeds do produce less dander this paired with the fact that these dogs don't shed make several breeds a good fit for people prone to allergies including Afghan hounds. Irish Water Spaniels Maltese poodles Portuguese water dogs Schnauzers and mixes of the above on the other hand. Some breeds can produce more of that protein and shed more Labrador Labrador retrievers for example can quote wreak havoc on your allergies according to the American Kennel Club. That said it's not a one-size-fits-all solution. We we spoke with Melanie. CARVER vice president of community health for the asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. She said some people with a dog. Dander allergy may be less reactive live or have less symptoms to Dander from certain breeds. Allergy testing cannot determine which breeds may work better for you than others the only way to determine if you can tolerate being around a certain breed is to have direct repeated exposure to a dog and see how your body reacts while the typical signs of pet allergies may seem obvious confusing scratchy throat or itchy eyes several lesser known symptoms can also appear. If you're doing a test with pup be on the lookout for facial pressure and pain seen a swollen blue tinted skin beneath your eyes and excessive coughing. These symptoms are similar to allergies caused by hay fever. There caused by inflammation of nasal passages other allergic reactions can affect the skin resulting in hives. EXA and general itchiness. In the most serious cases pet allergies she's can also contribute to asthmatic reactions like chest tightness wheezing difficulty breathing and trouble sleeping. Many pet allergy warning signs resemble symptoms of a regular cold symptoms last beyond two weeks are likely allergies and therefore a red flag in some severe cases. It's impossible to find a dog. UGH that doesn't trigger allergies but more often than not a few trials can lead to the perfect up. Breed plays the biggest role but several other factors such as dogs size can help help or hurt. Allergy prone owners big dogs produced more Dander and Saliva for instance in small dogs are simply easier to bathe and groom frequent in grooming which is required for any nonshedding. Dog is one way to stay ahead of allergies. Another recommendation is setting ground rules when it comes to lounge time. The American Kennel clubs suggests keeping pets off the bed and washing their pet beds regularly. It also recommends ditching heavy carpets and drapes. That are known to trap and hold onto Dander carver also suggests brushing and grooming your pet outside vacuuming regularly and washing your hands and changing clothes after playing with your pup it's not All Doom and gloom for those who have pet allergies several types of medicines can help owners further manage their allergy symptoms over the counter in a histamine. Help relieve itching sneezing and runny nose news. While nasal sprays can help reduce inflammation doctors may also prescribe stronger medications for patients who have both asthma and allergies and other allergy the treatment options including immunotherapy which is a series of allergy shots and nasal irrigation like an anti pot. But hey humans aren't the only ones who have have dander allergies. Dogs can to Human Dander to

Addiction is insidious and we have no idea how to stop it
"Addiction. Is insidious. And it really is. And we have no clue in this country. No clue how pervasive. It is how it's taking over lives in destroying lives and families. It's always been a family problem. But now with the opioid crisis. And and let's not forget that when I was in my early days, Tom, I was an alcoholism counselor. I can't tell you how many years ago, but it was like another lifetime ago and. It was a slogan. That was out there and it used to in it went there were a couple of them. But one of them was friends. Don't let other friends drink and drive. And it was two beer mugs. Clink clinking. And they broke he was phenomenal. It was so powerful and poignant, and it didn't stay on the air very long because the beer companies had a play in that as you know. And I know it it's it's always about the money. And it's it's a lot about the money. And so I want people to know, whatever your addiction is. There's hope and there's help. And and let's begin by telling everyone your your own personal story. My story Frankie is again. Thank you for having me on. I'm so excited to share my own journey and the journey of other people who have had that similar similar experience with you and your audience. My personal story is there is a diction on both sides of my family tree when I was an in patient treatment facility. I did a family tree. And I tried to identify members of my family who had either admitted or obvious. Not admitted issues alcohol or other substances, and it was on both sides. And there was a number of people throughout my adult life. I was a highly functional highly successful attorney in New York City, and I also worked at various times in government for various high level politicians, but I was always a big drinker, and you know, in the political world, it's called cultural thing, here's a lot of drinking that goes along with that, you know, and then a bunch of different things happened back in two thousand ten high was let go from very high level government job. And then there were number of accidents and injuries and illnesses and family members. I am very close personal friends. And so my drinking got really pretty bad to try and cope with that. And then with all the demand placed on me. I started relying on cocaine to be able to keep up with by law practice, and all the other things are taking family members to medical appointments, and it just got crazy. And you know, it was a silly way. Silly coping mechanism to us at the time. But it seemed it worked until it stopped working, and I wound up in in rehab and inpatient rehab setting. I had been once before because I realized my drinking. This was before the drugs really became an issue. I had gone to outpatient treatment to try and deal with my drinking. You know, and it was somewhat successful. But it didn't last and in the long term, and when I wound up going back to drinking and the drugs got mixed. And if it came a nightmare, so that's my personal story. What was it that made you realize that you had to stop the merry go round and get off it? Well, you know, the problem is I was forty four when I got finally got sober. And quite frankly, I think I started to feel around age forty that this the lifestyle that had worked so well in my late twenties and thirties and being able to drink a lot of alcohol at events, you know, get very little sleep not really focused on my nutrition. I really started to feel like I was hurting hit about forty and then forty four win forty three and forty four when things really got difficult. I mean, I couldn't walk a city. I was smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. I couldn't really walk a city block here in New York without wheezing. I feel my liver. I mean, it was really bad. And then I I actually have started to it'd be very open, and honest, I think it helps people maybe they hear this. And they're struggling I get emotional when I talk about it, you know, but I would walk around and not want to have to go to the bathroom to do the cocaine. You know, put it on my lips. So my my lips were actually leaking. And you know, I would say it was just a mess. And I just felt like I recognized very clearly that if I didn't take. My recovery or call it abstinence from both substances and start to really focus on my body.

"Now. Dave Baker rolls on with his home, fix it show business. We have people were calling this morning. Why wouldn't they be just saying, you know, commenting on our interaction? Really? Yeah. I called up. He's like, you know, Robin. You're like the cigarette you've come a long way, baby. Meaning like with you. You know, give it back to you. Now that I just don't take it. That makes no sense. It makes a lot of sense. The audience knows exactly what I'm talking about a smoldering smoldering. But. That is not true. But okay bye. Okay. Bye home fix it show on news ninety five five and AM seven fifty W SB here with the whole crew the new guy running the board Roxanne's here answering the phone calls even noticed her birthday. They hope people are wishing you're happy birthday when they call. She got a little bit of a cold. So we're voice sounds a little lower than normal. But she's here Tony wheezes here from Findlay roofing, talk roofing and things that may or may not go wrong with your roof. And if you're having issues, now's the time, you can call and talk to a roofing expert free of charge that roofing expert, we mentioned this in the last hour, but I know people are in and out in and out in great new deal working over at Findlay roofing lifetime warranty, and I say that right? So it's a it's a platinum warranty. It's. We call it a lifetime. It's technically fifty years of on the architectural shingle installs that covers labor. It covers bat labor covers negligence. Now, what are the specific terms of the fifth year? Let's just throw it out there. Let's let's I'm seeing I'm responding to stuff on Facebook. And all these roofers are trying to save. It exactly means you have twenty five years. One hundred percent coverage on the labor and the material labor. Meaning we mess. Something up. It's covered starting in your twenty six it drops to fifty percent. Okay. Head. Right. And then from that fifty percents in year twenty seven starts to go down two percent per year. Okay. Okay. But up to this point, we've only offered a ten year labor warranty. So basically, we've now your heart. Two hundred and fifty percent greater warranty that we had had that after that you still a fifty percent of it covered. So you're not buying. That's not a separate. Right. You're not. Hey, would you like the extended warranty building it in? We're now you're just spending the extra money, we've fought really hard. We redid our whole pricing mechanism, and we cut here and cut here. As far as our are buying goes. There was some below built into that mechanism. It's super tight right now. So basically, they're getting all the bells and whistles because you have to have four or five of these high level it's on the roof in order to even sell somebody blind them warranty. Those components all come in every install they get the platinum Morty in every install and and it's the real deal. It's not, you know, these guys take the fifty years single war. This year warranty. Look, and we talked about with the fifty here single warranty. Is right. It's ten years. One hundred percent starting in year eleven it's two percent off after that, you're thirty. You have sixty percent of the roof covered that's against defect. That's now, this is labor. It's it's it's everything. So we're really proud of it. Nobody's offering a standard standard warranty like this and all of George that we know of having there's one or two other Owens. Corning contractors in the country that are doing well, we're doing so I'm not gonna say that I came up with this idea on my own high heard. Years ago doing and I said, wow, that's kind of crazy. That's a little ballsy. Can I say that on conservative radio? That's that's ballsy can't say so you can say. It does say ballsy again. Okay. So to be two years still I like the feel confident being able to do this. We're doing it. It's been going great were excited about it. The skeptics can be skeptics, I answer all their questions. I'm the guy replied to your Facebook. Let's talk..

"Now the Bill yesterday Donald Trump took to the airwaves and created a cacophony of words and sucking sounds that added little to the debate on why he thought that now that he doesn't have control of congress. Now, it'd be a good time to insist that congress fund a physical barrier that congress doesn't wanna fund it didn't seem to be a compelling argument. It didn't seem to me to have properties that will compel even voters who are more likely than I to be compelled by the arguments that Trump offered in between wheezes Ross do the New York Times writes, the people who didn't want television networks to see the prime time our last night, or is it turns out a primetime ten minutes to the president of the US were implicitly giving Donald Trump accredit. He does not deserve. There is a kind of silver-tongued order who could persuade in any situation who was legitimately dangerous when given a Rostro Morris soapbox or a primetime speech. But that is not our president his rhetoric is a bludgeon. Actually, I was. Opposed to the networks granting him the forum, not on the basis of his skills as a speaker. But on the basis of the veracity he has shown as a public figure. I wasn't worried that if broadcast networks gave Trump the platform heat advance himself, I thought he'd use it to debase them. But that other part of the argument, that's pretty common. And it seems like common sense to say that Trump only uses rhetoric as bludgeon as a blunderbuss that can only convince dunderheads I've learned to not make that argument. I will tell you often when I think is arguments go nowhere. But my skills are predicting how these arguments will land to the crowds where they seem to have landed before out of that game. I'm not saying that it will move the needle in this debate. I mean, it really was nothing new as an argument, but I'm not sure how appealing it will make Trump seem to the people he wishes to appeal to I think that there is something to be said that even when he seems like a foolish. Doddering disillusioned president. He still seems like a president and most of the time he doesn't so anything. He does that makes him seem the least bit presidential could be helpful again. I'm out of the prediction game. I will say there was one way in which the speech did help Trump. And it's that it took away all the attention from the other predictably horrible news going on related to the Muller investigation. Manafort leaking to the Russians and that Trump Tower lawyer the talian vets on the sky, she was charged with aiding in money laundering. So yeah, it doesn't seem that Trump helped himself much because I haven't been persuaded that there is a way that Trump could say or do anything that helps himself. I've feeling that Trump will cave. The government will come back to work. And then he'll use some version maybe of emergency powers to build some version of a barrier. And then he'll lie and say he won. And this is the one case where that allergy. He has to the truth..
