How One Block Got Through It
"Over the past five months small businesses in America have been undergoing a mass extinction event. Bars are closed restaurants or half empty and retail is shuttered. Full blocks are slipping away. I wanted a sense of how this is playing out in the city I live in. CHICAGO. Not The one off story of a beloved are not the frightening toll in national statistics I wanted the story of one block. So I went to seventy fifth street in the Chatham neighborhood in the heart of Chicago outside. This. Part of the South side is really pretty. There are huge street trees flowers on the steps of the bungalows brick two flats al capone used to live in one of them. Many corners have signs from block looks setting the rules of the road. No loud music no car repair watch out for children playing. Even middle class parts of the side commercial corridors have struggled. redlining big box stores, job loss and black flight have left them full of vacancies. There are signs for businesses that have been gone. So long their phone numbers don't have area codes signs for furniture stores, nurseries, food markets, stores that sold beepers. which is what has long made this stretch of seventy fifth street, just east of South, Michigan, Avenue Standout, and what makes it stand out? Even during the pandemic. There's a handful of hair salons and barbershops. There's a dentist and a daycare. There's a cycling Ju. We're one day I visit. The DJ is wheeling bikes onto the sidewalk for afternoon classes. A little bit nervous, south. Arm. Being. There is a cult favorite, vegetarian joint Zoll Veg, which always has a line inside and if famous barbecue joint limbs, which always has a line outside. Large To dry cleaners where the pressed uniforms of Chicago police and transit workers hang under plastic and a Taylor who says online ordering suits him just fine. To never going to stop because you combat it fit to perfect. You're going to need some ultra and that's why. There's a deli run by an ex COP. I went there cover in plain clothes they know who I was and I got to a fight. So, as may have started the fight, my gun thought of mine waste and me and a guy is literally fighting for this pistol. There's a bakery, a frame shop and Francis Cocktail Lounge. The Bar has been here since December thirty first nineteen, sixty five muhammed leads to drop by Michael Jordan too. So we are the Regal. Beagle. You don't know three's company. So a lot of people, it is the neighborhood where everybody knows your name and we're able to have people come out and have cocktails on the front.

If you can't tell, she used to be an assistant principal at a Chicago Public School can't you put on your mask plays. Thank you. So, much. Appreciate you. Working with children really got me ready for this. One reason I picked this stretch of seventy fifth street was because it seemed on paper like exactly the kind of place that would have struggled to get through the pandemic stretch of black owned family businesses in a city that has been hit hard by. COVID. Nineteen. But what I found was not what I expected. Mid July virtually every business on seventy fifth street had reopened after the initial shutdown. Some were just getting by, but many of them said in spite of everything that they were doing. Great. I'm Henry Bar and this is the final episode in our series on the future of the during and after covid nineteen. Today, on the show, one block on Chicago's south side tries to get through the storm.
NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun
"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA

And through protest and policy, we're going to make that change. From genuine criminal justice reform to a fundamentally reimagined vision of policing to sustained investment in black communities, we will build an Illinois full of justice, equity and opportunity for all our people. And we've got more about June. Eighteenth on our website including our own Angel Ito's family connection to the day, and now joining us from various locations around town are Mike Flannery of Fox thirty two news. He had Eureka of the Chicago sun-times Gregory Pratt of the Chicago Tribune and our own Amanda of WTT debut news. Everyone I want to begin our discussion tonight with police reform news from this week Chicago Police Department missed seventy percent of the reform deadline set out in the consent Decree Mayor Lori lightfoot in her newly appointed Police Superintendent David Brown released a joint statement that read in part quote, the level of transformational change and reform that we are working towards cannot be achieved overnight. We can do better, and we are redoubling our efforts to meet important milestones mandated by this consent decree, seventy percent of the milestones not met on time. Mike flannery what kinds of things a CD failing to do on time here? Well, it was interesting Ma-. Maybe we look at it from the point of view of what the mayor and the superintendents say, they're gonNA focus on here this trying to establish this cultural competency of the the idea that officers will understand the neighborhoods there in that does seem to be a an has been a problem for for many years and and then they're going to. To focus on deescalation collation skills so that the officers who come in are not tempted to do what Jason Van Dyke did and suddenly you know within seconds of stepping out of the vehicle, pulling out a gun, firing sixteen shots, and then moving to reload you know those kinds of basic skills are what the department is still falling short. Those those dozens of deadlines. I think you can get overwhelmed with it. But when you look at the big pieces I'm reminded of what governor Pritzker said about repeatedly about dealing with the unemployment. Claims in the pandemic with IBS. They were trying to build the airplane in mid slight. That's clearly what this overtaxed and stressed out Chicago Police Departments Greg Pratt. Is that a sufficient excuse for the Police Department to Miss, seventy percent of these consent decree deadlines, which we should mention grew out of the killing of a quantum McDonald. Can they just say we're overwhelmed and we'll do better. Yes I get to be bad cop here because the answer is no and you know what much of that is much of those deadlines that got asked as pre corona virus, so you can imagine how much worse it's going to get, but this is a department that has always struggled to do paperwork whether it's oil requests or other things, and you're the city of Chicago if you're the mayor if you're a journalist. You got demand that the city picks up the pace. Because this is one of the big issues of our time and to say, we're busy. Doesn't do it. This isn't. This isn't some random foia requests or something. This is a this is A. Essential thing for the safety of officers, and for the safety of the public, and this is something we should do is put out by the federal. Monitor Maggie Hickey model, and he had Eureka. One of the things she said was not really. Agreed upon was an established protocol for police officers that are in schools. Does that poor more fuel on the fire for the folks that want remove police officers from schools? You know when the mayor says that These kind of reforms that we want. are not going to happen overnight. I would ask the question How many months is considered overnight, and and and how many years is considered overnight because this is not overnight eight, this has been many many months that the department and the city have failed to meet these deadlines, and so this is par for the course for the Chicago Police Department and for the city in terms of making department. Do what it's supposed to do, and when it comes to cops in schools. Schools absolutely, this is a huge issue now and it it's it's further evidence to community advocates who say that cops in schools only creates a school to prison pipeline line that there is further foot-dragging on doing the right thing all right well. Let's move on to some other news this week. A landmark wait a week at the US Supreme. Court I the court rejects the trump administration plan to end deferred action for childhood arrivals or Daca Mayor Lori. Lightfoot says she was surprised, so let's hear what she had to say. Can you weigh in on the Supreme Court's decision to block up president trump's end to Dhaka calling an arbitrary. I hadn't. Others good news. And a truly. That's good news. I'm grateful. There are so many people. There are so many young people. Who contribute incredible ways? To the vibrancy of our country. They deserve. And have the right to be here. Finicky, the president said immediately that they're gonNA try and Redo away to legally. End Daca, so is this just sort of temporary relief for dreamers? It do think is that not just because of what President Donald Trump doubled down on today in saying that he is going to move to again and Daca, but it's because it. This is left to the whim of any administration until you really have a law, I mean I it and so it's an executive order at this point. Advocates are saying we need congressional action and I will say however for any sort of recipients that of course on pins and needles, and all points in time, those who have already been deported by ice believe even as this has been outstanding issue. There of course is a in an election. In November, folks are very energized for it in a lot of things in government. Is We all know? Do take a Lotta time as the previous. In, obviously the COPD consent decree meeting guidelines and deadlines chose it takes a lot of time. Those wheels of government turn quite slowly, therefore with an election on the horizon. Those who want from out of the White House. They believe we're looking to that and perhaps hope that he is going to be able to do much with Dhaka before that point in time, things change of course where he'd be real act, we'll see if this becomes a political issue or it does seem like a majority of the country supports supports dreamers Mike. Flannery, also this week's. Court does rule that workplace. Discrimination Protections extend to lgbtq workers. Are you surprised that to so called? Justices joined with the liberal bloc on this ruling. Well I guess it's easy to say yes, but when you realize that one of another justice who actually dissented from that opinion read Cavenaugh. He congratulated of the the gay community, the the activists and the lawyers who had won this victory, even in his dissenting opinion and Saluted the outcome. The the dissenters in in in most part the drew legal distinction. Saying this is not the way to do it. and they that was their disagreement I. I think it shows how fast public opinion has moved I. Mean we've talked a lot about it, but remember back. Obama was first elected when he was first elected, he did not support. Support a gay marriage, and then, and then shifted once he got into office, certainly a cultural issue that has moved rapidly and let's come back to another cultural issue. Being talked about here in Chicago, and across the country Chicago, City Council approved an ordinance commemorating. June teens, but not officially recognizing it as a holiday here is what Alderman Leslie Hairston had to say about it. I am angry and I don't apologize for that because.

"R. Eligibility requirements and additional terms apply. Okay let's hop into the show. The end of the last dance. I mean bat was fucking awesome. It was wasn't it? Yeah I won't start at the beginning but just right now there's Ryan high off that ending. Were you overall like are you? Did you feel it? I thought nine was better than ten. That was a game of thrones season. One through six little treatment. There were episode nine. Did a little bit for more me than episode ten I want your reaction for much more. You're very jacked up and I wanna take advantage of the fact Linear Jack Dot. Nolan's air jacked up got it. Don't just just. Let's let's start with you that when we we like to start order anyways so we'll start with that episode nine. It begins in like a Reggie Miller montage. They're tied up Miller because he calls them black Jesus Jordan calls them the best team that they faced outside of Detroit and it just sets up for an awesome seven game series in the Eastern Conference Finals. And they do a great job. I just I'm a little. I was like that was my breakthrough moment episode nine because they have the ninety eight Eastern Conference Files Games one through four Michael almost hits it like rims out then they just cut back to the nine seven finals against Utah Jazz. Then I tell some story about vitamin ROT. It'll Brian Russell. The trash in I liked that I was just like caught up. Like oh it's ninety seven files. We're talking about ninety seven. And then they show him hit the game winner game one so I had I you so we can they kind of both that up for me a little bit between the ninety seven finals in like the Eastern Conference finals. So is a little hard for me to kind of like once. We cleared that like once. He hit the game winner and then go to the flu game. I was Kinda like I think I kinda see where this is dawn. Okay she kind of came together. Here's the thing you do understand. That might have been a little tricky for them because it was the finals. Matchup was back to back. It was the same so to kind of make people understand that with time line. I could imagine them shooting. That was weird right. Yeah I think that's pretty weird because they're like well. How do we make this clear that this is the ninety seven files in the ninety? Seven finals isn't really the store anyways. for whatever reason. I mean they really. We didn't get any of the nineties. And although I love the fact that they went debunk Kerr. Like I didn't see that coming at all. Yeah that was crazy. And what probably episode nine. What gave me the goosebumps. Before he got Kerr was when he was assessed. Still San gotta come through Chicago. You still gotta come Scotto. I was. I don't know that Jack me up. That might have been my favorite quote or my favorite like killer instinct. He could see your eyes Michael Jordan moment. Yet through this whole time episodes. You know okay because there's wanted episode ten that I don't Wanna I don't WanNa ruin we're GONNA stand up as the flu game story. Heard some speculation before think someone leaked at story in our livestream before so I was prepared for that. It's still a wild story yet. It's crazy picture that five people walking up with a pizza and fucking Salt Lake City. Utah being all like. Where's Jordan like we're going to give them this fucking Sawdust Pizza? That probably has who knows whatever the fuck is in it and picture in them all getting that call you know three M. obviously if you're Michael Jordan's guy you're probably on-call like forever. You know what I mean you are. There's no no time is off limits. You Get up and you go no matter time. Place Day vacation doesn't matter into them walk in that room and know that he's got a game that day and look down on them in the fetal position was probably insane. Yeah terrifying for a lot of reasons although I feel like people closest to. Mj could see that game coming. We've got an obviously the media. You probably can't say tonight inside bullet you know if you round up John Michael. Wozniak cost latte like the boys that were close Damigella. Y'All what do you think's GonNa happen the night behind closed doors? You-know-who like dude. If he's sick he's tell him he's going to kill them all. There's GonNa be a little bit of a different kind of attitude. Different type of killer instinct for sure and do you buy Jerry. Sloan saying he didn't know he was sick Yeah I mean Jerry. Sloan Emmy is hall fame competitor. I feel like Jerry Sloan all-share you're like he's got he's got nothing to prove like he's going out there trying to drop a good game plan so I gotTA respect the compliments in Chicago Florida unless you feel differently. I mean he's such an old school dude so if there is a coach to believe on that I would give him the benefit of the doubt of anyone. But you know how it works like if you're in a locker room and there's a game going on the fact that no-one muttered to him hayward is Michael's pretty sick. It's hard to believe mice foot do you okay. Here's a it kind of reminds me of like baseball when they're like Yo I have. This is relevant. I guess with the Astros but before they'd be like hey i. Have you know a tip on the pitcher or like you know? I got the signs. Do you want the signs some hitters. Don't want to sign some hunters are like. Hey Don't don't get my groove. So maybe Jerry. Sloan was the coach. Where it's like if you wanted to Jerry as long as a MJ sick. Maybe Jerry slow as the typical. I don't give a fuck of one hundred and fifty percent you know. He's bad guy. I got my own plan. I'm sticking with that I don't care who is doing what over there Jordan is still going on the court so we still. I'm still going at the game plan for sure. Now now on the subject of coaches in episode nine. You've probably your favorite moment of the entire documentary happen in the coach. Involved Michael Jordan Denis. Let the cat out of the bag too early. Ed You roll with it all right. Obviously there's nothing better than Larry. Bird waiting for him in the fucking in in the bowels of the United Center after after getting eliminating game seven. Yeah I I don't see too many people chirpin but I did get a sense of like. Ooh This is interesting and I guess a little weird that they went down the Steve. Kerr path like you said it was. It was definitely interesting but there was like there was a sixty eight minute chunk sackman right there. There was like oh well. This is very why. I'm ready for a finale here. Already to wrap this up. And that was like the beginning of a story of like Steve Kerr and it was cool about the packs and dynamic and how he told them I can trust you. I was into all that but then with his dad I was like. Oh Okay so when I saw people being like. Oh that was that was weird like whatever. I was like all right. If you didn't like him saying you know you bitch fuck you bird at the end like you're worth the price of admission right there for episode nine. Yeah I mean I think that kind of set the stage for later but it's cool to see. Yeah close. He Larry Birkbeck. I did have the sense I was like. I wonder if Larry Bird played like with the Pacers on that game like he came back for like one game only was like six guy off the bench. Or whatever you could. He of made the difference because as we joke around. Ready scored zero points in that fourth quarter. Now Larry looked a little less. I guess he didn't look as much of a killer. You know what I mean like. That wasn't like the player. Larry do you think he's obviously one is titles as a player. Do you think it means less to apply to a coach if you've already won and he's already proven yourself. Yeah one hundred percent. I think Larry Bird Larry wanted income. You get a coach in because you want to make some money and he didn't play the time when you were making you know the money Michael was making and he obviously missed out a couple years on like massive endorsements you was endorsed but so I'm sure at that point Larry. Bird's career beat out of the train. Team one winning several championships being famer considerable the grades. First of all time is probably. I'd be interesting. Feeling for him is seemed to be taken at pretty like he seems to be. Pretty happy for Michael. I think in that case Larry. Probably serious. Those first round lost the Charlotte Hornets. But it's like Yeah Okay your game seven Eastern Styles. Chicago like he lives down. Jae What do you do about Larry for sure for one thing? We've forgot to bring up. What the fuck was brought by an Russell? Doing go going to them when they when he was not when he was still in baseball when he came to say hi to. Carl and stock and he's like Yo. Why did you like I wanted the chance to guard you? You gotta you gotTa be an idiot. Of course who would have thought that came back to bite him in the ass but I mean what? What Dumb Guy do you believe that story word for Work Guy? No Johnson was a little shit. Had like you thinking that I mean I don't see I don't see why Michael Lie about that is as a vengeful spiteful. Guy I think he remembers conversations like that more than any type of conversations period. You know. Yeah it's a good point. But like what if he was like many? What am I pry Russell? Brian Russell came up to him. It was like man. Dude I want to guard you. He's he's saying that like you know would have been so cool out of respect and I'm like I'll fucking kill you like a little less threatening. A little less cocky. I hear what you're saying you know. There's of every story. They didn't have Brian Russell on there. Do they know you're right? You didn't get on there and fucking defend what he said. Jay Price their towns like I would never say that Michael Jordan. Why would you do that? Although who knows I did like the fact that Michael to set the stage when they brought up by Russell episode nine about how he played on the front of his feet. And how you could like direct traffic with them and stuff and so he's like yeah. I knew that guy played overly aggressive and stop. You just got to catch them off balance so sweet interesting. Some other notes have here from Episode Nine. Kerr's parade speech incredible. Yeah like the price of admission..

And Chicago stories were joined by one of the great comedians here in Chicago, Erica lots and how you doing. I'm good. I'm so happy to be here. Thank you. I heard you just wanna big award. I did. I won best actress in a drama for film that I'm in called black Korea, and I wanted with the windy city international film festival. Did you ever think that I was going to happen? No. What's the character at play? A woman named miss Pearl. The movie is based on my agents life. Actually, her name is Patty Gill, and she is a biracial woman. Her mother's Korean. Her dad is black, and it's about her and her brother being abandoned by their mom and dropped off in Inglewood Chicago to live this new life in Chicago, and I played the woman that takes them any raise them, and she actually still lives in Inglewood to this day. So I'm playing a real person. So the pressure was on. When you spend any time with her, you know what? I did speech on the phone because I didn't want to get too close because I didn't want to imitate her. I just wanted to bring her spirit alive to life, mung, and it worked. I guess I wanted award. Well, congratulations. You so much. Where did you study? Well, okay, so I went to the university of Illinois down in champagne for four years. Ended up flunking out and then transferred to Columbia college. Chicago, where ended up getting my bachelors and my masters mega big where your alumni checks go. Absolutely. Viet college get you. Yeah, so, but you know, when I was in college, I was so busy. I majored employable science, but I really wanted to be a filmmaker and a director. So I spent time really. Right? Yeah. So you know, uh, spent time outside of classes, directing writing, plays producing stuff, and I got so busy with that that the schoolwork failed behind. But when I transferred to Columbia, I got to major in what I wanted to do, and that's why I always tell young people follow your passion dream. You know, my parents figured I would have a career politics, maybe be a lawyer. We're going get your political career, right? Yeah. We'll talk about that. So tell me what's going on in the TV film here in Chicago, but also like I'm like really hot into comedy, really? Oh yeah. We like Netflix all the time. I just saw the day recent, Dave Chapelle show. I love alley Wong. I think she's so who's like five comedians. I gotta know that you have to know besides Erica Watson. Yeah, I'm in south about some Chicagoans marina Franklin. Who is. I'm gonna have to ride him down or have somebody else write him down. Okay. Yes, you think she's, she's somebody she's. She's a Chicago girl raised here, but she's a New York donor thing, and she was a mentor to me when I started, but she's hilarious. Stand up. She's doing standup. She'll probably have a special soon, but she's done all the major networks. And then there is Godfrey another Chicago comedian heat, both marina and Godfrey. Both went to the university of Illinois will. And Godfrey at once they missed out on Columbia. So. Yeah, yeah. And then who else? Hannibal Burress. He's from Chicago Hannibal. He's like a lot of national commercials and stuff now, you know? So yeah, he's doing well, yeah. So there's three or four you are? They all doing stand up. They all doing a stand up. They're all people that I looked to follow the jury of their careers. They started way before me because I've only been doing comedy about ten years, but song for people in the industry, twenty years twenty five years is there you know the marker of being a real comedian. So I'm still a baby in some ways some way some way. So now I did catch on when you see lives that you're announce them for mayor, and I thought that I should have at least one of my opponents on the podcast newer at. Exactly. So that's about love about you that you're not afraid. We're gonna talk issues bass. So your whole thing is I understand it was if you're good look and your thug on the street, you want the good look to stay here so you can put your hands on them. Yes, lay hands on lay hands on, yes, ugly, you're going to serve jail, right, getting locked up, but you know, the joke just came from the fact that so many of my friends and I wear single and I need to start hanging out with you because you're at all these political events. You know all the cool bachelors with money. Probably you get. You can be. We'll give you a twenty four hour wingmen type job only twenty four hours. We'll probably amount of activities deaf. Second is. I mean, I think you gotta hand USA mayors bodyman if you can. If you can get a business card, if you can't get a date out of that, listen, I'm, I'm not sure you're going to have to throw anybody in jail for that. That's true. So I can be the mayor's wing woman that guarantees me if some men with some jobs, I'm sure most of your friends have jobs. Good job, right. I'd rather work for you then run against you? Honestly, because I do. I think you've done a great job is especially when it comes to film and television production here in Chicago. I don't necessarily can say that you single handedly did it. I would say that once you're my wing woman, I have to say that. Because of you? I don't. I can't think of anyone else's ever been in your position here in Chicago that is really sobbed to others according to his third. That is so hilarious. Nobody don't. So you think it's added for the opportunities for actors and actresses. City town. The fact I have gotten rolls on Chicago, PD, Chicago med, your favorite movie shower. And empire that would that would be unheard of to be living in Chicago working as an actor to get guest star or co star roles on major network television shows we would all have to go to New York or LA to have a career. You can live in Chicago now and have a television career in. So I'm so appreciative for that. I always tell people, they don't know this ready. How many people you think were at the cintas base location for all the TV and film. How many are there? Eight thousand doing all the states all the lightning. All the Abby Nelson. It's the largest film and television studio outside of LA. That is crazy. Eight thousand Chicagoans working who
