Fresh update on "chicago tribune" discussed on Reset
"It's it's being reported that Latino community leaders and lawyers Are calling for the Department of Justice to step in here and to investigate the case. What do you hearing? You know what? What I wore my ears to the ground is here and Cook County where, as Andrea was saying prosecutors are trying to determine whether or not to charge This particular officer criminally? No. I think what they're what you can call for on the federal DOJ level is a little bit broader, and it involved civil rights. I think what needs to be clear is that these different kinds of investigations have different scopes and different ends. Right as is Andrea was saying earlier. There's a different standard in a different set of evidence that you can use when you do when you're talking about a criminal charge against the police officer versus a disciplinary proceeding against a police officer, right. And when you involve the federal DOJ you're talking about Whether or not there's have been broader civil rights violations right, so there's a lot in the next year, and I know that it feels like a long time since the shooting, but relatively speaking, I'd say we're in the very early stages. I think we'll be reading about this for quite a while. Andrew, what would it take for the DOJ to step in here? And how might their involvement impact the case? Well, the DOJ steps in they would be taking a look to see whether the Chicago police in this instance or in a broader sense, have been violating the civil rights of Um of communities, particularly communities of color in in Chicago, the short answer to that is yes, they have for a very, very long time that the question would be then whether or not the the consent decree would be modified. To take into account this particular kind of behavior, whether there would be a civil rights prosecution by the Department of Justice of the officer involved in perhaps other officers that were connected to this particular shooting. Um, you know, or whether the federal government would consider, uh, you know, a federal Criminal prosecution, which I would deem is highly unlikely. But one of the things about having the Department of Justice come in and take a look is that they have the they have some distance. From the city and from the county in the sense that there It isn't their officers that isn't there. Prosecutors. It isn't you know, it isn't any of those things and they have the opportunity to take a look and see whether there is a pattern behavior. What's referred to as Mon El? Kind of of evidence in federal courts, and they may very well do that. Andrew while we're talking about this police shooting of Adam to Lehto. Minneapolis jury is deliberating right now. The verdict of Derek Sheldon, That's the police officer who was charged with killing George Floyd. What are you expecting might happen there. How long could these deliberations take? It's very hard to say deliberations can take a very long time when there are alternative choices, which there are here because we have a second degree charge of murder. Third degree charge of murder and a second jury charge of manslaughter on day So it may very well be that they that they will be debating. Which crime to convict Mr Sheldon on. I would be extremely surprised if if he was not convicted of something, and my my Guess would be that they will pick the middle because jurors do tend to compromise when there's that feeling evidence and so that a third degree murder conviction Seems in my view, to be most likely one of the things that is Troubling about the way the defense proceeded in this case is there is then as far as I can tell, no acknowledgement. In any way about the tragedy of Mr Floyd's death. From the sense perspective, they have done nothing to express any Sense of remorse. Whether whether that the former police officer was acting rightfully wrongfully or somewhere in the middle. Someone died and Right? There seems to be absolutely no feeling that that matters at all. And I think that is going to Um and Andrew, even with the track record of The lack of police convictions and in cases like these years still You would still be surprised if there is no conviction here. I would be surprised. Yes, because you do not have a situation where you know where you have someone who was actively resisting and You know those nine minutes and that smirk. Um, they're pretty damning. Yeah. Well, that is criminal defense attorney Andrea Lyon on also with us was criminal Court reporter for the Chicago Tribune. Meghan Crap. Oh, thank you so much for joining us. Coming up..

I think they're very concerned. This is the third more transmissible burien to be discovered in illinois however sixty nine cases of the united kingdom variants have been discovered in illinois so that various right now is much more prevalent in illinois and bigger sources concern. However that's why you've not seen the governor in the mayor. Look at that.

Two pharmacists fired after one allegedly took COVID-19 vaccines home, mixed doses at DMH in Illinois
"Indicator. We're a couple of pharmacists have been fired. The story comes from the Chicago Tribune and the reporting of Lisa Shankar, who joins us now, Lisa, welcome back. Thank you s Oh, tell me about what What's going on here in Decatur? Sure. So, um, we foid my colleague Jomar. Avoid a emails from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Freedom of Information Act. You filed? Yeah, thank you and looking asking for anything that they had received having to do with complaints about how vaccines have been administered and there were emails between Memorial health system, which is hospital Decatur and State Health Department because apparently to pharmacists employed by memorial health system were fired after one of them took doses home to her family members and incorrectly or inappropriately mixed doses of the vaccine. On a day when 300 of their health care workers were vaccinated, let's take the first one first. Um the the pharmacist has not been identified. Right. The emails did not include names in the health system that they couldn't tell us names. She was fired because the health system said what? She took vials home to her family. How what did she do? Sure, the health system. Apparently, What happened is she took a dose is home to her family members, According to these emails, the health system said that she took two doses and her family members were not people who would have been eligible for the vaccine. At that time. We know how many people were talking about. Um, health systems that she took two doses. Doses. Okay. And then the other situation and I didn't really understand this. Um, what defense was that? You explained it in the peace but that they were mixing doses from vials. Explain that for me. Sure, so if each let's say each vial of a fight of five your vaccine contains like six doses. After the pharmacist takes the six doses out of the vile there still might be a little bit left at the bottom of the pile. And so what This farm sis did was take that little bit that was left at the bottom of the vile and combine it with leftovers from other vials. Um, which to me? It sounds like a great idea. Yeah, right, And they're actually has the controversy about that, in some places about you know, is that a good way to get more vaccine? But the FDA said that that should not be done that That's a bad idea. Because it is. The sexy doesn't contain preservatives. So if you're mixing Vaccine from different vials. It could lead contamination issues. That's because the vaccine was taken out of one vial introduced to the Needle and the syringe and then reintroduced to another violence that what is that worthy infection? Which, Because it's more like Let's say you have a tiny bit of it left over at the bottom of a few different vials. And then you combine that little bit from the few different vials to create one new dose. Okay? And and that's the same pharmacist who was You took two doses home to her family, right? Okay, so two pharmacists were fired. What did the other one do? We don't know. We know it had to do with with this incident, but the health system, um, would not say how this other pharmacist was involved, so maybe covering it up or something like that. Yeah, We just We don't know you. I'll just
Mayor Lori Lightfoot Provides Update On Chicago's Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout
"Black and Hispanic Americans are about twice as likely to die from covert 19 is white Americans, yet they have been vaccinated. At much lower rates across the country that in Chicago, about half of the city's vaccinations are for people of color. The mayor of Chicago, of course, is Lori Lightfoot, and she joins us now more like for thanks so much for being with us. Good morning, Scott. A pleasure to be with you early in the vaccine roll out less than 20% of vaccine doses went to Chicago. Once of color. Now, that's half. What did Chicago do? That can make a difference. Can it be done in other places? Well, we work extremely hard to overcome. Vaccine hasn't see in communities of color protect particularly black and like flat necks, and really that hard work began at the very beginning of the pandemic. We were seeing the disproportion impact on communities of color, this horrible virus. We went to work in those communities, which trusted partners. And I think those that hard work over time is starting to bear fruit in the significant off take to go from, you know the low teens. Of uptake in the early days of the vaccine program to now over 50% is remarkable turnaround, and it's really do that the hard work of so many people across our city certainly led by city government, But really, our partners in the neighborhoods deserve the credit because they recognize this life saving Vaccine has to go to those people that are most in need. And in our city That means communities of color. But what's the messaging in this Because, of course, you know, a lot of the hesitancy is historic, based on things that, obviously well, what's the message Inky were able to convince you there's there's no secret sauce, and it's really ah lot of diligence, one on one conversation and getting people who are trusted. Community partners in those neighborhoods who recognizable literally. We've gone door to door for months now to get people educated. Provide them with information really do a lot of myth busting and you've just got a Put in the hard work to overcome their fears. And I think as people have seen people that they recognize whether it's a mayor of color as I am or their neighbors who are getting the vaccine without adverse consequences. It's bringing people who are really standing on the sidelines into the field of play and saying, all right I'll do this. I think it's safe. Have to ask you Mayor Lightfoot, a zoo, you know. Chicago Tribune reported this week that the city spent more than $280 million nearly 60% of the discretionary spending money it got under the Caress Coronavirus relief package. On CPD, the Chicago police Department. Is that true? And what do you say? OK, I'm going to quote Alderman less Fatah. The first ward, who says that money should have been sent on spent on housing assistance in small businesses, not the police. Well, we spent Tens of millions of dollars on a significant number of community service and social service programs. As you know, Scott when the tears package Came from Congress. It came through specific line items and grants for programs like homelessness, community health, um, violence prevention and other things. Those were designated dollars where there was really no flexibility whatsoever and how that money was spent, and we spent it accordingly. There were some money, however, that the federal government gave to cities like Chicago to address the unprecedented need to respond to covert 19. And yes, we spent money on a range of first responder activities because they were at the front lines in many instances, particularly in the early days of our covert 19 response. So the criticism that somehow we should have taken a pass on free money from the federal government that came to address unprecedented and unbudgeted needs that were in our city just doesn't make any sense. I make no apologies for the fact that we took advantage of the opportunities that the federal gave government gave us rather than passing on. Was expensive to our taxpayers, so that the the choices do we actually take advantage of the re rope the money that has given us two by the federal government and save Burden on our taxpayers, or do we just pass along the cost to the taxpayers? I understand with our taxpayers every single day and do everything that I can to save them from any further burden, And that's exactly what we did in Chicago. Thanks so much my pleasure.

The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure.

The former empire's star had been initially charged last month by prosecutors on one felony count. The filing a false report. The incident sparked breathless international media coverage in Ted social media, speculation accelerated by the political implications of an openly gay black man's alleged assault by attackers who put a noose around his neck. He claimed that they yelled maga- tried to bring Trump and Trump supporters that oh my God. The Trump racist white supremacist. Mega loving Trump loving attackers. They hit him because he was gay because he was black. And of course, it was a complete like a complete fabrication. Chicago police had worked around the clock on the case for three weeks, I to investigate an alleged hate crime. And then to completely dismantle smaller story this data what I'm reading is coming from the Chicago Tribune. So this is a Chicago Tribune report. And then on February twenty first the day that was charge. Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson blasted this guy for dragging Chicago's reputation through the mud. So the breaking news is that jussie smollet has been indicted on sixteen counts. Dumb ass. But I'd check. Yes. Dope. Yes. Unbelievable. That he would even think that he can get away with this. You know, the the story from Chicago Tribune said former empire star, I know that they they cut them from the last two episodes, but I had not seen sewer. They fired him completely. So. Yeah. I I had not seen if he had been fired completely. I don't know. Could you could you look up the the Chicago Tribune story?

They ought to throw the book at him, and he should be prosecuted to the full Senate the law. He on a have to reimburse you he wanted more money. He thought I guess he was making one hundred thousand dollars an episode. He wanted more money. So he can cockpit the scheme I by sending that that letter with the Canucks fake cut out letters, you know, trying to signify a ransom note was cutting letters out of a magazine and this threat against his life with a noose hanging around a stick figure with a gun to his head or something to that effect. And then he's going to die and this and there was white powder in the envelope. And it was mailed to the production office for the TV show shot in Chicago, and that didn't draw enough attention that wasn't good enough. He was disappointed in the response. So he concocted the attack on the street. How people think they're gonna get away with this nonsense that it's not going to collapse that it's not gonna fall apart. That to me is just. Incredible.

A handful of short shopping days from that holiday time from Christmas. And so people are making their choices here. And I know that a lot of people are thinking of themselves when it comes to great grilling gifts for that special someone what are you gonna get? Right. You could head into now. And in almost any store people have it you don't necessarily have to have to find a specific barbecue. So of course, we recommend the backyard barbecue star where you've got everything plus the expertise to go along with it. We have one of the experts in studio with us the one and only max good from amazing ribs dot com. I think on the product side, here's what it is. That you guys do at had knows this in a big shout out to him as he's he's heading off to the theater, right? Correct. Me does not define him. Right. Grilling barbecue expert, and he's gonna take in some Shakespeare today. You know, I think Shakespeare. When he was done doing all the theater stuff. It would it would grill a little bit, right? He would barbecue somewhat. Well, all around the world, there's different traditions of cooking outdoor over live fire, and I'm certain Shakespeare took advantage of it in his day with are there any now, I have no have all my Shakespeare place in front of me. But are there any scenes where there is maybe a conversation over let's say a grill. I I love Shakespeare, and I have memorized a few passages. But I don't recall anything specifically along those lines. Okay. Well, maybe we'll look into it. The the the lesser known was maybe we'll emerge at some point. So think about this you guys when it comes to the list. It's basically the Shakespeare of information when it comes to greet products on the grill side, and you do the grills the smokers, and that kind of end of things and people think, oh, well, jeez. How many can there possibly be max? Right. There's so many out there now. It's incredible. Well, you know, the the desire to cook out. Adores is escalating worldwide American style barbecue is catching on all over the place, particularly in Europe, Australia, some other areas. But yeah, I mean, I I try very hard. But I can't keep up with all the products that are out there. They're coming at me, a mild mannered Dane well in. You think about the popularity of it, and you talked a little bit about so sort of that global reach. I was just down the Jack, and they have international competition. There were people that were doing some really amazing stuff. I mean, so that learning curve and our good friend, mutual friend. Really happy Dr barbecues over there at grill stock all the time. And he said initially when they first started there. It was crazy. They didn't necessarily like understand the whole concept of American barbecue. And what to do and how to do it? There are certainly creative. Right. And there's some great minds, and they had some decent equipment. But now, I mean, it's only taken a handful of years, I think because of the internet because places like amazing ribs dot com. Right. We're all information is out there. And I think the the playing field is getting kind of level where people are are. Are you a more people are grilling and enjoying grilling all around the world. And it is a good business. I think it is one of those businesses. I mean, I don't know if you've studied the trends or whatever, but as far as being able to make something and do it at a very high level in your own home. I mean, grilling is one of those things. Absolutely. I think cooking in general. You know, you have the all the food shows on TV and on the internet. People like to cook. Just a wonderful thing. You know, you really get a reward every night after you've cooked something, hopefully, you get a reward. If. Awarded shows true. That's true. But you know, I it's it's it can be a social activity particularly with barbecue. I mean, what RBQ is social at you? You wanna be outside? You want to have a beverage in your hand, you want to be gabbing away with your friends and family. We we're going to be pushing. I think it's going to be forty fifty degrees today maybe tomorrow too. And so you don't have to brave the elements in order to do it. But Chicago is one of those places as I have talked to grilling enthusiasts. It's one of those places where we don't let the weather stand in the way of what it is that we want to do whereas in other places in the country. It is more seasonal, right? You know, it's it's in the summer in the backyard, kind of thing, certainly we do all of that. But but here I think in Chicago and give me your thoughts as far as maybe some of the feedback because amazing ribs dot com, you have fans subscribers people that come to the site from all over the place. But but Chicago, I mean, do we grill more than maybe other places in the country? I don't have statistics on it. But I would say that there is a trend as people. Become more and more interested in cooking and more interested now door cooking. There are leading weather stop them. Whether it's rain or snow, or whatever, you know. And we hear from a lot of folks that say they, you know, I don't care if it's snowing. They send us pictures of them shoveling their grill off they're out there grilling away. It's the whole grilling and meet and we've talked about famous Dave always says that there's something you know, as Steven Reich. Glenn always talks about it as well. Right. As something sort of almost from the caveman times that we're like it's in our DNA as humans to be able to to have meat and cook it over a fire and all those kind of things, but the equipment has changed. You think it's been around forever? And obviously it has with the the whole caveman thing, but the, but the grilling side of it is when was the one was the first grill made was was it like a Weber kettle grill. I mean, and I don't want to go all the way back to you know, what we're in the ruins of Pompeii kind of finding something that could be, but but as far as like the modern girl as we know it well. However was one of the first that really made a splash, and they're right here in the Chicago area, by the way, as you probably know from but there were other girls banging around at the same time portable kitchen PK. They came out the very same years Weber introduced their famous cattle nine hundred fifty two. People were I'm sure there was stuff floating around out there. But I mean, Henry Ford famously tried to promote barbecue with the model t he had these wacky little kits. Because the idea was I got to get people to buy these cars. So I have to give them a reason to buy them. Well, you can go drive countryside grill. Get a car, I think he hit me with it in a bag of charcoal. And here's a funny story, people don't know this. He actually started the Kingsford charcoal company. Really? Yes. He was may he had all these wouldn't parts from making the model t's they were a little odds and ends. And he said what can I do with them? I I don't wanna waste them. So that he made charcoal out of them and one of his daughters. I believe married a guy whose last name was Kingsford. And he ended up taking it over. I did not know that. So one of our kind of a conic adventures was also there is one of the founding fathers of the charcoal briquettes. Absolutely true. Yes. Wow. Okay. So all right. So let's talk a little bit about what what we have here today. So now you've got Weber. It is one of those as simple as it may have been in the fifties. It is it's basically unchanged. But it's still, you know, it's not broke don't fix it. Right. It's the same one. Now. I know they've done some adjustments and certainly some bells and whistles, but they're still making the same basic thing. If you go to their facility in Palatine, Illinois, right outside of Chicago. They have a small museum that has the older and they have one of the original kettles. Here's something else that you probably knew this. We're looking out of the beautiful. Lakeside here from your from your studio. Weber was actually a company that made booties that were used out on the lake and on bodies water, and that round bottom George Stevens was working for Weber as I recall and making these bullies. And he just chopped the top of one off and put a lid on it. And that's how the kettle started. He put dampers in events and on put it on legs. So he got the name somehow. I guess I don't know all the details on that. But Webber grill was actually the bottom of a buoy. And if you if you see the original ones you go. Yeah. But it's funny. I've grilled on them for so long to open at litter. This whole thing it looks like it came from Pompeii, and he opened up the lead. You look at the bottom, and it looks almost exactly like they look. Wow. You got think? Right. It's it's a very simple concept, and this kind of thing that's been sort of copied in different ways. But Weber is the one that has really kind of staked told that that market share right in and you look back yards here in the Chicago area. Anyway, around the country, you know, you're gonna see a Webber grill back there. And so are they still as guy who's used consistently testing things out there is it the mousetrap thing? I mean is it still for what it is you to put some charcoal in and and light it up and make some make some things right? Whether it's hot dogs hamburgers, or even maybe some more complicated. So is the Webber grill. Still the way to go from a product perspective a full-size Weber kettle you can make anything on it. You can make pizza. You can make cakes. You know, you can make ribs you can make steak you name it. You can cook out on a as long as you know, what you're doing. And if all you want to do is, burgers and hotdogs, you can do that too. You know? Yeah. For the money. You can't go wrong. You know, if that's severe on the desert island scenario. What are you going to bring with you? Charcoal on your island might as well go with a kennel, and for those people out there that are considering thanks and we've got a text from the six three zero. Do you have to get you know, there's other markets that make or other places where you can get basically a kettle kettle type grill. It may not be the brand name of Weber because Weber's is kind of. I think it's maybe at a premium, right? It's it's a little bit of expensive for what it is. Are they all the same? Or is there something magical about is it the metal or the way that they're doing it? Or is it just better as far as quality of construction? There are some other good brands that make charcoal grows and are not all kettles either. But yeah, there's a lot of knockoffs out there. Weber does a lot of things right though. Some of it's on the marketing and sales side, but also customer service. They have the best customer service in the business. I don't want to sound like I'm doing a commercial here. But they do I've been at their factory, and they're very proud of their processes, and they have a reason to the they're consistent. They're good. They're not very generally a little more expensive, particularly when you get into the gas grill. You. But once you have elaborate a lot of people don't switch. They just depend on the kind of thing, and that's part of the sales. Of course, you've got to make sure that we mentioned we're talking with max. Good from amazing ribs.

I do this group that you've heard this morning is one of six choirs at Woodstock high school and is one of two out of six choirs. Yeah. Does anybody go to class radio just get together to sing? I mean, it's not that. It's a bad thing. They actually do go to class. A lot of these students are in AP classes, honors classes, really involved, and they managed many of these students have zero hour, which means they're rehearsing every day from seven twenty two eight ten and this morning. They had kind of double zero hour because we were on the six o'clock train into the city. So it was it was a shake that effort by the early morning. Well, so where can we say we're going to see them? Yeah. Definitely. So today, actually, we're going to be around the city will be at one north LaSalle singing at a five headquarters, which is a marketing company that promotes Woodstock and promotes local businesses at Woodstock.

"The Chicago Tribune. This is wondering if our guests like here this time in the middle of the summer. Not yet. Tuesday. Talking to Brooklyn fired and Graham, they are it. Why don't even actually know which characters you are are you the leaves in nutcracker. I do heater which is the nutcracker himself, which is kind of fun. I save Marie from the evil mouse king in the battle scene, and we journey to the world's fair in the second act together. So it's a it's a really fun role to portray a lot of acting which is fun tons of dancing. So, you know, very happy with that. And we all too many different roles. I mean, the great thing about what it does is that they don't try to just burn someone out on one role for the twenty nine shows. I mean, that's just a lot. And so they there's different casts every night. I mean, we can go see two shows in the same year, and it'll feel it's the same story. Same choreography? But however, one interprets it is very different, and it's cool to see the differences. Sometimes. And having done this real before. Brooke? What do you bring like how do, you know gear up for something like this? When there's a different carnation of it. You know, when when you have to sort of bring Christopher's version of it to life. Well, Chris was I was there when it was made. So it's very helpful. 'cause crispy so much information and cues about our characters and background information. So I do a variety of roles throughout this run. I am like a mom in the party scene. And I am in the snow scene and visited the fair also a wild west woman, which is so each character each scene, you know, you have to take your different person. You know, you can't go through the whole to our show like like smile and sparkle it's like you really want to we all try to embody these different roles. You know, like, what does it mean to be this worker woman who's now like celebrating Christmas with her friends and family, and then in the snow seemed like, you know, you're something other world year snowflake has its own challenge. And delight it seems like I mean, obviously, it's very physically demanding the roles and being a dancer. So what do you do? I know you don't get. A lot of free time especially in December. But when you're not performing to kind of unwind and escape the physical demands of dancing. There's a lot of things that you can do. I mean, mostly just you know, breasting is tastes great salt bath, but just icing and making sure that you continue to do your physical therapy every day. It's it's a it's a constant work just to maintain your body, and your physique we take ballet class every day. And it's it's never done practicing. You never done working, and honing your skill and all of that just contributes to how you have to take care of yourself because it's really easy to kind of like burn out, and that that's not fun. And so I sing and going to see physical therapists getting massages also cross is really important to you know, going to the gym doing some yoga doing. Different things because you, you know, you wanna be as well rounded as possible because the dance world nowadays is has a lot of classical stuff. But we do a lot of very contemporary stuff in the spring. We do a hip hop piece. And so it's a lot of different styles of movement. And there's not one perfect way to do anything. And so having a well rounded like physique and body structure, really lends yourself to being able to do wide variety of things that law where are you from originally Brooke I'm from Utah from Utah? So the cold weather doesn't necessarily hit you too hard. Every say, it's harsher. Yeah. Meaner? Does it feel more personal here is that what it is? Attacked by the air joined that where are you from Graham? I'm from San Francisco. Well, I've been here for ten years. Now eleven years and seasons is like a new thing for me never really had that. So I have to say that first couple snowfalls is so magical for me. But then you know, January comes. I'd say grace. Does it is it leaving three lights are down. Yeah. And it's also kinda hard. I have to say sometimes performing when it's when it's cold out because it's like, we'll have like a matinee show, and then in the evening show, and in between, you know, you want to go get a Cup of coffee a bite to eat then. So you have to have really bundle up outside get your food, really quick. And then come back in and then like warm up again. Yeah. You don't wanna you know, pull something.

"That any more than one is usually a good idea definitely, so other comments or questions For our panel Several of you spoke about intimidation, that reporters receive and I've gone to several panels this week where this has come up again and again and hearing the other night from NBC news and obviously an, organization, like Bloomberg the the, New York Times they have a structure in place of support for their journalists and. For their reporters when these issues of intimidation come about specifically the other day that the woman from the New York Times who was one of the reporters who broke the Weinstein case spoke that had she. Worked somewhere else she might not have had that support from editors for the months and months took her to pull that story together when he was actively. Intimidating many reporters I'm wondering what advice would you give to people at, smaller news organizations medium or small sized that perhaps wouldn't have all have that reputational, support behind them institutional support behind them No question that that makes a big difference as someone who's worked, for like a little paper in Alabama where you'd have like sheriffs and even smaller, counties like intimidating people Versus working at the Chicago Tribune or Bloomberg Well known charities we did investigative work with against when I. Was at the, Chicago Tribune and big threats but you know when, you're chairman CEO's a former Wall Street banker and you have a, lot of, lawyers, and people are very season they're like okay don't worry about it And you have not only that financial and. Establishment power behind, you but the depth of experience up and down, the line to kind of gauge things it makes things a lot, easier the, only, thing I can say Is you have to instill in, here journalists that people will try to intimidate you I mean the people still constantly. Try to intimidate me and my. At our reporters in small ways Little there's constant little friction with the White House with the State Department where they're trying to. Claim you know that we shouldn't be doing something and, it's really to try to intimidate us and. A lot, of journalism in small ways and large will be people trying to charm you intimidate you And you just have to get people, used to thinking about that but I do think it I now that I'm on the other side and an editor going over to. The dark side I am highlighting the positives of that it really helps to even in the small paper hopefully have, that, wise editor who can can. Can reassure you or say you, know we need to listen to that other side? Sometimes and it's a difficult thing as a reporter and editor to say okay they are raising a point they are trying to intimidate me but to what degree. Is this a valid point I need to listen to that and it helps if you can discuss that with someone else And and the I personally think it helps to bring both experienced to it and fresh People are unjaded and on. Unexperienced and don't have that narrowness that you get with experience over time And that's that's the main thing I would.
