Fresh update on "linda" discussed on Vickie Allen and Levon Putney
"On WCBS evening, I'm leave on Putney. And three things to know. Here at 11 45 1 income taxes air likely about to go up to 10 and three quarters percent in New Jersey for people making over a million dollars while at the same time $500 tax rebates are likely going to single people with at least one child and making up to 75,000 year, as well as two families making up to 150,000 all afternoon. Jersey's governor and fellow Democratic lawmakers agreed to a deal on that. Millionaire's taxed too, for out of work. New Yorkers, the state Labor Department will start sending $300 a week payments under the Lost Wages Assistance program and three things to know number three. New York City public schools again pushed back the start of in person classes for students opting to physically go back. More on that from WCBS reporter Rhys Lamb, who talked about it all with anchor Lynda Lopez on today's afternoon roundup. So why the latest setback in the schedule? Linda as we all remember, the schools were originally set to open on September 10th. But at the request of the unions, the mayor move that to the 21st That's Monday. But in an hours long session yesterday, you Ft President Michael Mulgrew and Council of Supervisors and Administrators president Mark Cannizzaro argued the case that the schools are not ready and would not be ready by Monday. They're big problem was the number of teachers because 25% of the teachers say they cannot teach in person due to the pandemic. So extra teachers became necessary. The administrators union demanded an additional 10,000. The mayor initially declared that 2000 would do the trick. But after the long session yesterday, the mayor is now adding another 2500 teachers for a total of 4500. But that's still fewer than half of the number that administrators one right exactly. But here's the thing. The unions now say. The 4500 teachers just announced are what's needed to handle the lower grades before middle schools and high schools are taken into account, so The unions do plan to meet again with the mayor next week. And yes, you can safely bet there will be demands for still more teachers. And did the mayor have anything to say to parents? Well, the mayor said he feels for them because he was a public school parent and has walked in their shoes as he put it, but asked whether he should be apologizing to them, he said..
U.S. Agency Urges End To Below-Minimum Wage For Workers With Disabilities
"So for 82 years, American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they could be paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people. But today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs that they call exploitative and discriminatory.

What Is The Pe Diet
"Everyone is Martin from twenty minute fitness I'm here today connected with Dr Ted Niemann Dominate, and why don't you tell liberal listeners about your work and book? The P. Will Hi Martin Nice to meet you just call me Ted first of all. So I, I'm Ted name I'm a primary care doctor and I've been in practice for about twenty years up here in the Seattle area and I have a mechanical engineering background, and so I'm kind of like a just a huge Geek. A nerd kind of a Geek mechanical engineering background went to medical school and. I ended up just being obsessed with optimum health and I realized that the difference between the healthiest people I saw and the least healthy people I saw really just came down to diet and exercise. So all day long in these patient visits icy this huge spectrum of health You know one minute I might be seeing someone who has just amazing body composition and their incredible health, and they might even be an elite athlete and then the next minute I see someone who's just frail and decrepit and falling apart and has millions of problems and it eventually occurred to me. That the only difference between these people was really just diet and exercise over time, and if your diet and exercise is optimal, you just slowly get better and better over time and if it's not, you just slowly get worse and worse over time and then you know fifty years down the road you see this massive spectrum of health from incredibly healthy to incredibly unhealthy and I've just been obsessed for twenty years with exactly what is the mechanism between Diet and exercise driving health outcomes in exactly what you have to do to get the positive adaptations instead of the negative ones and I've you know I've just been all over the Diet spectrum I was raised vegetarian I went to Loma Linda University in Southern California, which is this famous blues Mecca were everyone's plant based So I've I've experimented with Air Free Diet from Vegan and plant based to, of course, oil spectrum of Paleo. Kito. Carnivora. You name it and everything in between, and then I eventually realized that all of these diets right about something and the answer is in between and the secret is finding out what's powering each and every one of these diets and making them more successful than. The Standard. American. Diet and that's really how I came up with this book. The P.. E. Diet, which is sort of the unified theory of macronutrients You know that's at least it has been described right so so how does like the P. E. Diet look in a nutshell what makes it different from say pay euro at the Ketogenic diets or you know all vegetarian diet for example. So what I did is just zoom way way way way way way out to the fifty thousand foot view and just looked at what is eating and I realized that plants are. Auto troops and they make all their own food and then animals are Hetero trips and we only exist because we constantly injust other living organisms. So plants are at the base of the food chain for all animals they're making all the food for animals and then animals are just either eating plants or animals that have themselves eating plants. What plants her doing is two very specific things. Number one, they're sucking minerals out of the soil, which is nitrogen for protein and and about a dozen other minerals that are crucial for plant and animal life, and then they're using solar. Energy and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to create these high energy chains of carbons with high energy bonds, carbon hydrogen bonds, and that's all of your dietary energy either carbs, fats. This is all solar energy stored is chemical energy. So I realized that you could divide your entire diet up into protein and minerals which getting room soil and energy, which is these high energy, carbon chains, carbs, or fats that plants creating from solar energy, and then I, sort of looked at all of human history in this evolutionary Lens. I realized that if you look at hunter gatherers, they have this. Incredibly. High Protein Diet. It's thirty three percent on average protein. If you look at worldwide hundred gatherer macronutrients and hunter-gatherers, they have an easy time getting protein they just go out and kill an animal and eat the whole thing you get plenty of protein and minerals but you're always a little bit starving for energy right? Every animal you know trying to get enough energy to be successful, and so you're always looking for extra energy to add to your diet. You can get the protein and minerals, but just killing an animal and eating the whole thing but you're looking for. Extra Energy and what humans have done is we have always used technology to feed ourselves. We don't have teeth and claws were not particularly fast or strong on. But what we have is brains, and so we built tools, we use tools to feed ourselves. We use technology to feed ourselves. We had stone tools with break-up in skulls for branch and long runs for married at fat energy to our diet. We dug up tubers, add more carbohydrate energy tour Diet. We figured out how to throw weapons and create traps in hunting in groups, and we all of this technology to add. More, energy to our diet

Biden turns attention back to coronavirus and reopening of schools
"President trump. And his administration had done their jobs. Early on with this crisis, Merican schools would be open and open safely. Instead American families all across this country are paying the price for his failures. Mr President or are you? Where are you? Why aren't you working on this? We need emergency support funding for schools and we need it now. Sue. President. That's your job. That's your job. Today Joe Biden called the opening of of schools quote a National Emergency Joe. Biden said that if he were elected president, he would direct. Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide emergency relief funding to immediately help K. through twelve schools with ventilation personal protective equipment, and hiring more teachers in other words, provide federal government funding to give schools and teachers what they need to actually reopen schools and what parents need to trust the reopening of schools joining us. Now, is Linda Darling, Hammond President, and CEO of the Learning Policy Institute and a professor at Stanford. University. She is one of the education officials who briefed the vice-president Biden about his school reopening plan also with us Dr J. Blackstock an emergency medical physician. She is also the founder and CEO of advancing health equity and a Yahoo News medical contributor. Dr Let me start with you. What do you think is the science requires for the reopening of schools. So that there are several factors at play. The most important factor is the community transmission rate currently the CDC in whol staying five percent competivity rate anything about that. It's not safe to open and so looking at that number only are a number of areas throughout the country that are prepared open New York City with positive rate of less than one percent, and then after looking at community transmission rate have to think about the resources that schools have spent elation math being able to a separate cohort students into smaller groups having faith as well as school nurses. So all those factors are incredibly important for parents to consider. When deciding to send their kids to school Linda Darling Hammond. Did you advise Joe Biden. A needed to be done for the reopening of schools. Well, there's a couple of things that we need. Certainly, we need all of the things that the doctor just listed. In schools in order to make them safe and there are costs associated with those things. Thus far, the Recovery Act that has been passed has spent less than one percent of all that money on supporting schools to get the resources that they need to be able to open in addition to the things that were just mentioned. There's the need for additional cleaning and disinfecting and there's the need for adequate testing and tracing so that if there are cases they can be immediately dealt. With in quarantine So we need the funding that's been held up in the Congress ought to get to school so that those things are available We also need clear guidance from the CDC about the level of infection at which a community can safely open schools and the ways in which they should treat cases for quarantining and closing down when there are cases that occur in schools. All of those things are being taken up by the states but right now, the states have had quite a big hit in terms of the economy and so they are operating quite often in deficit and need of the federal support in order to be able to do the job that needs to be done. Let's listen to what Dr Anthony Veltri told Andrea Mitchell today about the infection rate and how it is still running much too high. About forty, thousand a day. Right around forty thousand new cases. That's an unacceptably high baseline. We've gotta get down I'd like to see a ten thousand or less hopefully less. So Really WanNa use this opportunity almost to have plea to the people in this country to realize that we really still need to get our arms around this and to suppress these types of surges that we've seen.

The use of 'less-lethal' force by law enforcement
"It's been a summer of unrest in a number of cities across the country, and just how and win police use so called less lethal force is a topic of much debate as we report in our cover story. Theo demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, streets in the name of Jacob Blake started as most protest do peacefully. But his day turned to night simmering tensions boiled over. Tempers were lost. So is the message. For police. Balancing the right to assemble with public safety is a delicate one. If and win, crowds get out of control the weapons at their disposal. Are designed to be less lethal. But in the weeks of unrest since the death of George Floyd Not just violent agitators being targeted by being backgrounds on phone tip projectile. It's the innocent. We're being injured as well. Take this protest in Fort Lauderdale, Florida back in May. 34 year old LaToya Ratliff was there Was it peaceful? Was very peaceful. There weren't any issues for the most part of the day. But something changed. She wasn't sure. Just what the time but clearly mood shift way were kneeling on the ground, a good distance away from the officers. And even as we were kneeling and chanting and being peaceful at that time we started to get tear gassed. The crowd dispersed, including a toy. That's her wearing a pink backpack. But watch what happens next. Toya was shot in the head by a 40 millimeter phone tipped round fired, her attorney says, Buy a Fort Lauderdale police officers. The impact fractured the toys, skull. She needed 20 stitches and I remember people screaming and saying help. She's been hit called 911 in my mind. I'm not thinking that I was shot because Why would the officer shoot me? If I'm not posing any type of threat to him and I'm actually leaving? Hers is not a unique or isolated incident. I didn't realize how big of a deal it wass. Until there was light surgeons around me. Linda Toronto, is a freelance journalist sent to cover the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis. She's a veteran of this kind of reporting she was in Ferguson, Missouri. Back in 2014. After another police killing this one of Michael Brown. There's a space where the protesters were gathered in a group and police were gathered in their line, and the people who are in between and not space are gonna be media. That's how you get the understanding of what's going on is you, you stand and you watch both sides. That's what she was doing in Minneapolis that night. This is the last photo she took what appears to show an officer aiming directly at her. I think that I not shooting people in the face for exercising. The first thing we fixed about the Constitution should just be Standard operating procedure. The non lethal round shot at Linda that night blinded her in her left eye, so I can see to about here on de everything past. Everything from here to here is just a blank. I'm assured that as I become used to having one, I'll be able to do all the things I used to do without it being a problem. But like the getting usedto only having one eyes Not a small task. To be sure, police have been injured in the protest to hundreds of more than 50 on one particularly violent night in Seattle. Crowds can be dangerous, dispersing them is often necessary. The research on the lethality of less lethal weapons. Is pretty hard to come by. In 2017 review of the available literature of the subject was published in a medical journal. Be M. J. Open. Of the nearly 2000 people. Since 1990 documented to have been injured by less lethal rounds. 300 suffered permanent disability 53 of them died. These air, large, dense High speed projectiles, and they cause significant and severe injuries. Doctor Rahimi Har is with physicians for human rights and one of the authors of that review. The basic rights like free speech and free assembly are being suppressed. Globally and the primary way that that's happening is because of crowd control weapons. In just the first week after the death of George Floyd Horror documented at least 100 serious injuries to protesters and journalists. Most To the head and neck. The narrative is that they're not lethal. They're not dangerous that police need a continuum of use of force and that these air really excellent options for them to be safe while at the same time controlling riots, and that's not the case. It's absolutely not the case. While most police departments have access to Leslie, the weapons experts say fewer offered any significant training. Just how to use them. I've talked agencies. We've never seen crowd control before. We didn't even know what to do These air 40 millimeter impact munitions. Travis Norton is an instructor with the California Association of Tactical Officers. He specializes in less lethal weapons. Not only how to use them. But win How do you do with a group of agitators in the middle of peaceful protesters? There are a lot of different tactics you can use. Unfortunately, a lot of those departments don't know what those tactics are. What are we trying to accomplish with what we're trying to do? Are we just standing here on the skirmish line and deploying impact munitions protesters hoping they'll go away or do we have an actual strategy? Rules of engagement, he says, have to be set. Because the risk of injury is almost inevitable. Unlike live ammunition, less lethal projectiles are unpredictable, where an officer aims and where the munitions hit. Could be two different things. Law enforcement is screaming for something better for us to use that it's out there in the last 20 years. We have had no new, less lethal. Come out other than prototypes and pilot projects until something better comes along, he says less lethal Sze will likely remain a crowd control option for police departments. It doesn't have to remain, he says. Is the cloud around their use. A lot of times what happens within law enforcement is these things will happen, And then we just forget about him because we're onto the next emergency. It's not purposeful. It's just we don't have a lot of time to reflect on things and we have to do better at that thespian or injuries. Montoya rattling has kept demonstrating Peaceful protest is in her DNA.
Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right.

Revel scooters returning to New York City streets after three fatal crashes
"Deadly CBS reporter Max Rosenberg talked with Lynda Lopez on today's afternoon Roundup. Mac, We know the number of crashes are stark. So why the decision to bring these back yet? Linda more than 300 crashes now since the beginning of the year, including those three deaths this summer, you know it's an unprecedented time, obviously, in so many ways and maybe in another year With no pandemic toe worry that it might be a different story. But because the subways for months and months there at the beginning of the pandemic, we're basically empty save for essential workers. These rebels kind of became a resource for a lot of New Yorkers to get from point a to point B without having to worry that being indoors in a subway And that's really the argument here from Transportation commissioner Polish Rottenberg she calls revels, a sustainable mode of transportation and a good alternative. Well have they put new safety measures in place? Oh, yeah, plenty plenty of safety measures here, and it's important to note that rebel was suspended for about a month, and Schanberg said they wanted to find a sweet spot of sorts here of being able to bring it back. But in a safe way, so rebel did not have to go through the customary regulatory process, which may have taken months. So you now have a 30 questions, safety training that all riders have to take in the app. There's also going to be 10 times the amount of in person training so you can train In person with a rebel specialist on how to ride the MO peds safely. That's going to be important for first time writers because the data shows that first time riders makeup for 17% of those crashes that have happened so far. Oh, and then you have the helmet Selfie. You're going to need to take a selfie with a helmet on and upload it to the app and there will be higher fines for violations and the 1st 60 days now of this relaunch revel will be shutting down between the hours of midnight and 5 A.m..

Driverless trucks could disrupt the trucking industry as soon as 2021
"Sign we give truckers hoping they'll sound their air horns. Well, you're going to be hearing a lot less honking in the future and with good reason. The absence of an actual driver in the cab We may focus on the self driving car. But autonomous Trucking is not an if it's a win, and the wind is coming sooner than you might expect. As we first reported in March, companies have been quietly testing their prototypes on public roads. Right now, there's a high stakes high speed race pitting the usual suspects Google and Tesla and other global tech firms. Against small, startup smelling opportunity. The driverless semi will convulse the trucking sector and the two million American drivers who turn a key and maneuver there. Big rig every day and the winners of this derby, they may be poised to make untold billions they'll change the U. S transportation grid. And they will emerge as the new kings of the road. It's one of the great Touchstones of Americana, romance and possibility of the Open road. All hail the 18 wheeler hugging those asphalt ribbons. Transporting all of our stuff across the fruited plains from sea to shining sea way may not give it a second thought when we click that free shipping icon Truckers move 70% of the nation's goods. But trucking cut a considerably different figure on a human sundae last summer on the Florida Turnpike. Starsky Robotics. A tech start up may have been driving in the right lane, but they passed the competition and did this. Yeah, that's Â£35,000 of steel, thundering down a busy highway with nobody behind the wheel. The test was a milestone. Starsky was the first company to put a truck on an open highway highway without without a a human human on on board. board.

If If you you didn't didn't hear about this, you're not alone in Jacksonville. We talked to Jeff widows. His son Tanner, Linda, Alan and Erik Richardson. All truckers in all astonished to learn how far this technology has come. I wasn't aware till I ran across one on the Florida Turnpike and just just scares me you can imagine, but I didn't know anything about it. No one's talking about everybody. Never never. I didn't know it comes so far. And I'm thinking, wow. It's here. He's right. The autonomous truck revolution is here. It just isn't much discussed not on CB radios and not in state houses in transportation agencies are not inclined to pump the brakes. From Florida. Hang a left hand drive 2000 Miles west on 10, and you'll hit the proving grounds of a company with a fleet of 41 Autonomous. Riggs. This is a shop floor. This is a laboratory. It's both in the guts of the Sonoran Desert outside Tucson. Chuck prices, chief product officer it too simple. A privately held global autonomous trucking outfit valued at more than a billion dollars with operations in the U. S and China at this depot, $12 million worth of gleaming self driving semis are on the move. Right now we've got safety operators in the cab. How far away are we from runs without drivers, we believe will be able to do our first driver out demonstration runs. On public highways in 2021. That's the win. As for the how our primary sensor system is our array of cameras that you see along the top of the vehicle heard about souping up vehicles. This takes is he was a little little bit different. Yeah. The competition is fierce, so much so their technology is akin to a state secret. Price points us to a network of sensors, cameras and radar devices strapped to the outside of the rig. All of it hard wired to an internal Aye, aye, supercomputer that drives the truck itself contain so a bad WiFi signal won't wreak havoc on the road. Our system can see farther than any other autonomous system in the world. We can see forward over half mile. You could drive autonomously at night. We can day night and in the rain. And in the rain at night. And they're working on driving in the snow. Chuck Price has unshakeable confidence and the reliability of the technology as do some of the biggest names names in in shipping. shipping. UPS UPS Amazon Amazon in in the the U. U. S. S. Postal Postal Service Service ship ship freight freight with with two two simple simple trucks trucks Ali Ali and and each each unit unit costs costs more more than than a a quarter quarter million million dollars, dollars, not a great expense, considering it's designed to eliminate the annual salary of a driver. Currently around $45,000. Another savings. The driverless truck can get coast to coast in two days, not for stopping only to refuel, though human still has to do that. We wanted to hop in an experience automated trucking firsthand. Feel like it's our turn on Space Mountain, Chuck Price was happy to oblige. We didn't know what to expect. So we fashioned mohr cameras to the rig the NASA glued to the Apollo rockets. Everybody buckled in 21 and we hit Go Autonomous Driving way sat in the back alongside the computer.

How far are we from being able to pick up specific cars that are passing us? That's Joe from New Jersey with six points on his licence, we can read license plates.

Most of her two million fellow truckers are less enthusiastic. Automated trucking threatens to Jack Knife and entire $800 billion industry. Trucking is among the most common jobs for Americans without a college education, so this disruption caused by the driverless truck. It cuts deep. As truckers like to say a few few bought a truck brought it. Stevie Celia's, a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania and an expert in free transportation and automation. He also spent six months driving a big rig. What segment do you think is going to be hit first by drivers. Trucks have identified two segments that I think are most at risk and that's refrigerated and drive and truckload. And those constitute about 200,000 trucking jobs. And then what's called line haul in there somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 to 90,000 jobs there, you're talking
How To Run A Bowling Alley-Arcade-Restaurant-Bar In The Middle Of A Pandemic
"Would be even harder than just running a restaurant. Come on. Running a restaurant there was also an arcade was also a bullet. Right. There you can't the business involved a bunch of people touching stuff. Really. Yeah, and sharing shoes, right har you disappeared shoes, right so many questions. Well, the good news is today we have guests. Could. Speak exactly that because among other things he has co founded a bowling alley. Bar. And Love, I have so many questions about the bowling alley of model before or even before I should say the corona virus hit. So I'm looking forward to this one. Where could I just say one more thing crazy or we bring guests not gone con- do you know that I want bolted to sixty three? Strike. As effect. Pick Sur- it didn't happen not so nice. Say it a high school I otherwise I would have had fucking. Anyway a likely story trust. Numerous introduction today I'm very excited someone who he should have had it on a long time ago long even before virus finally getting on. Adamos AMAC. So as mention he's the CO founder of decades is a bowling alley arcade bar in restaurant in Lancaster Pennsylvania in is an economist. is the chief economist at work, which is an online freelancing platform. So kind of the perfect guest to talk about the macro of what a seeing the economy, but also in the micro of actually run or try to run a business. extraordinary. Time. Adam Ozanich. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having US I. Guess you don't have to worry about disinfecting the shoes right now because I assume no one's volume. Bowling or they are willing they are bowling there socially distance bowling. What's that? So we have six lanes at decades, and this means that you can bowl on every other lane and we always have a fairly small maximum group size anyway. So that's really concerning. Do you disinfect the bullying Balser. What happens are people like spraying antibacterial spray into the holes every time they come out yet we have disinfectant. We always disinfectant shoes in one of the things that. Might surprise people about how we're a little bit advantage coming into this is disinfecting was like a big part of what we did before. the PIN number saw we've always disinfected our shoes after every single us and we've actually had a throughout the business we have. Stations of hand sanitizer. They've always been there. We've got I love the five of them. Arcade. But we're pretty clean place. If you're just picturing like a regular bowling alley arcade, that's not a good imaging mind to hold what decades is like we're fairly upscale place. It's a commonplace where you'd be comfortable getting a cocktail and we've got chandeliers hanging out. Nice. Leather couches. It's like a nice. It's a nice place. You're totally comfortable buying a good cocktail. They're so like we work hard to keep it clean and make feel clean we always have. So disinfecting that we've been part of what we do the only thing sort of extra We now we disinfect the Arcade Games all day long and we disinfect bowling ball's all day long. So, took us a little bit about like, okay. What is business like pre-crisis accompanying business like yours bullying are your? What is the sort of business model love Blake in normal times in terms of where you make money or the profit opportunities are I assume some aspects are more loss leader than others like Linda just normal day to day the business of running back. Sure. So it's really four businesses that overlap the restaurant, the bar, the arcade in the bowling alley there's a lot of fixed cost operating all of them. So there's not really a profit margin overall area, but you get sort of operating margin it do you. Basically make money on all areas in the business. I'm they're just different different kinds of operating structures. So like in the restaurant is a high costumes sold business that means there's a lot of materials that go into each dollar you sell, but the front costs are smaller share. Bowling is like a massively fixed cost business. So like your ninety, five percent of the cost of boom is a fixed cost which was putting in lanes. On the marginal dollar bowling, you have really high margins and same thing is true for. The big cost of machines you have the cost of tokens you have maintenance repair costs, but those are relatively minor. Via Arcade is that a high margin business tone The good news about climb margin businesses is you can afford to do all sorts of like discounts on them to make them into laws leaders if you have nights of the week where you want to. You, know if you have like a lover capacity night of the week, you can do something like everybody who comes in Lottomatica gets two dollars for tokens. When you in the food business in the restaurant business if you want offer discounts, it's really get into. You know actually losing a loss leader with bowling arcade it's all opportunity cost. There's you know it's really hard to lose dollar someone balls it costs you like. Almost, nothing to let them all. In your cades. This is something I always wondered given that there's so many different businesses involved in something like a bowling alley that also serves food and drinks and has video games well but what's best deal for a customer? Would it be just going there to bowl and not buying food or drink or would it be going narrative buy food or drink because the cost of food and drink is subsidized by the bowling alley or? I know it changes all the time, but I'm just curious whether there's there's one thing that kind of stands out to you. So it's definitely, you can find specials throughout the week. If you WANNA bowl, it's cheaper to bowl off on like a night of the week doing a special order nor Keagan doing special. So Nat Sense. You're talking cost minimization coming outside of peak hours is going to be the best way to do it. It can be pretty busy on the weekends saw. Do you WanNa make sure you can play your game and unlike Saturday night you know you have to get there kind of early to get signed up all. It gets pretty busy because six lanes. So from a cost minimization perspective queuing perspective the slower days of the week you better odds. But in the put on my economist hat, the real value is not determined by the cost the inputs the value is how much get out of it so in my mind. Whole SORTA experience. It's great full. Complete evening. So I like the total package she come in you blend games you bowl an entire evening is a lot of stuff you can do with your friends. So it's sort of irrelevant to the consumer what what the relative costs you're looking at what your consumer surplus from and it's true. You can save money by bowling on a Tuesday night, for example, but. Your friends might not be able to go out on a Tuesday night. All sort of gather at specific times. You mentioned the ability to give out token maybe two dollars worth of tokens if you WANNA to come in on a night that typically less busy have turning. into a loss leader to grow food sales. But I'm curious about the token aspect US specifically in part because there is this nationwide. Shortage so that mean you guys don't have to worry about the coin right I of bunny token. That's right. We don't have to worry about the coin shortage right now. But that's because of lessons learned about coin shortages and we we get our own coins minted. They say decades on them never nice little. Picture on them of our logo you, designed to coin up my heart. Sinden, he's the one of my partners is that he's an artist and designer marketing guide and he he designed the coin. It looks great. We did have a coin shortage early on. So we ordered what we thought you know speaking. The token people are used to dealing with arcades. And we have also are the person we are teams from WHO has a lot of our experience and we talked to both of them we got this is how many coins you should have for an arcade of your size, but demand was so strong at first the velocity of spending we couldn't keep up with it. We didn't have nearly enough tokens and it took US actually like months to get caught up to the amount of tokens that we should have. Because it takes a while to them. There's a backlog also, you're sort of in denial about how much you Tokens. Because, you think about is like well, we're GONNA spend this little bit of front nettle. Be It for Tokens but people walk away with Tokens. Fine. 'cause you think you're going to bring them back eventually even if they don't, it cost less than a token mitt less than a quarter to make token. So like someone buys one hundred dollars tokens and frozen in the trash, we make money on that. We don't make as many as if they gave back to us, but we still make money. Right? But when we first opened up, we had just this massive coin shortage 'em. What required was constant constant emptying of the Arcade Games. If you have here token level set crackly, you shouldn't have to Vr your your games throughout the night it maybe once. Or twice on like a Saturday she really busy. But they're big. They have big containers on them. They're meant to be held up with the days where you said you should have to empty them. but we opened Keith the supply of coins moving. We had to be constantly engaging, and this was actually I was doing this a lot. I don't actually work there on a partner, but I don't think take salary I don't have a job there. But I was for our. I like opening week weekends. I was there like our busiest times wearing the decade shirt like a staff member going around the emptying the ski ball machines who machines just emptying the tokens and keeping them moving basically long so that that's the cost of a coin shortage says you have to. Interject yourself into the the arcade economy and keep them moving.

I didn't know how to fit the phrasing it I didn't. I suddenly wasn't the way I was used to singing it so it really knocked me off my stride and and I think we went through it twice and it was a hit you know what was I supposed to know. I mean I was just shocked. I didn't want him to use it because I I felt like I was struggling so with a singing and I thought that showed you know so clearly but it was a hit so when they put it out. That was a lucky thing for me that they didn't listen to me. So this is my guest Linda Ronstadt different from nineteen in sixty seven.

"Linda ronstadt welcome to fresh air is a great pleasure to have you on our show. thank you so much. I WanNa talk with you about your childhood and your family tree reading your memoir. I was astonished by the richness of your family tree. So let's start with your grandfather who was born in Mexico and I had a hardware store in Arizona. Tucson you and had a lot of business that came across the border from Mexico. Tell us about his music background. He was the one into son who taught everybody had to play their instruments in symbol command and wrote the arrangements and wrote a lot of compositions for the band and he was like the music man except he really knew how to play music and how to read and it was an autodidact he had quite a rich educationally went to. I think seventh grade in terms of formal schooling but he was a wide reader and loved opera loved loved art and all those elements were there you know in his life it was it was a rich life artistically he he was a rancher. That's how he made his living in Arizona. It's a tough gig because it's the desert and sometimes there's no water and then their cattle so he went through some tough times he went through the depression but he was apprenticed to a blacksmith when he was a teenager and so he had the reputation in southern Arizona for making the most beautiful wagons and buggies you know like the equivalent equivalent of a Mercedes that you would drive around horse and carriage did did he do a lot of Mexican songs. Oh yeah you know if you wanted to serenade your sweet argued. You'd get my my my grandfather's band to go in to in the morning and if you had to have a military parade while my grandfather's band was the one you get you know and if you had a wedding or a funeral it's short for that. I mean in those days. You had to make your own music. You couldn't get it off the radio you can get it from Youtube. You can download it. You had to make it yourself and that's what he did. so while we're talking about some of the music he introduced you to in the music he played. Let me play a track from the first of three albums that you did of Mexican and Spanish songs and their Mexican Song Mexican stars in the title of the Album Canzoni di. Mi Padre is the same title that your aunt gave a collection of songs and stories that she published. It's my an was a singer in a dancer and she was a a music scholar you know in the teens and twenties of the twenty century and she traveled all over Mexico and also went to Spain rain and she collected all these different regional songs and dances and she wrote a letter home to my grandfather saying that she discovered a guitar player that she thought was absolutely wonderful and he he could hold the attention of the audience when she left the stage change your costumes and she wanted to bring him to the United States because she was sure he would be a huge hit there and become a star in his own right right and the guitar player was on the via ended. Did he come here because of her. I don't know I'm sure she encouraged him to but I mean he. You know people that kind of talent. They make it on their own right right. Just didn't get in the way you know so the song like being the eagles. You know I didn't get their way. They're your backup band before. They're the backup band and I just got out of the way so the song i WanNa play from your first album of Mexican songs is I'm going to say this wrong. Rocus Yana L. WOP on what weapon geared all yeah Sienna Weapon Gabriel. It's a certain kind of song style of singing it just just there's so much emotion in the song say a few words about it before we hear it well. This music is typical of the mountain regions and I guess in mountain regions people develop kind of yodeling style 'cause they can throw their voice across that have telephone so they they yodel and so there's a beautiful kind of haunting romantic kind of break in the voice that makes it typical Bongo. They're my favorites and there's a rhythm underneath. It is would be written in European time signatures through a six eight but it's not really a six eight six eight with the kind of hitch in the gate you going to grew up in that region and sort of know how to count it. It's very much an indigenous Mexican rhythm okay so this is Linda Ronstadt from her first album of Mexican and songs Ketziot not me padre from nineteen eighty-seven.

"You didn't at least have to build a little bit yeah so four days later on October sixteenth. Linda rented a two bedroom apartment for her. Glenn live at the Briar cliff apartments which on the north side of town so they're going all in they're putting their chips all the center of the table. She introduces Glenn to Oliver Over family members and that includes dinner at Linda's mother's kitchen table and also getting to know her fourteen year old daughter crystal. They seem happy. Linda was in this romantic whirlwind that she felt like she deserved to be in. She'd been through a lot and now finally only after all those hardships. It seemed like everything was coming together. Real father had committed suicide. When I was a hero he was a war veteran and it had messed him up so mama dealt with a lot of issues from my father committed suicide but she never really let it show she was always there. I'm sure you've heard me talking about carnival row in the past couple of weeks but I am obsessed. Carnival row is a one hour fantasy drama series starring Orlando Bloom and and Kara de Levin and the series is set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. They struggle to coexist with humans. They're forbidden to live love or even fly with freedom.

'CAUSE you're probably wondering why the fourteen year old daughter in crystal also sibling why they weren't living with their mother as she's moving in with Glenn so prior to Glenn coming into the picture Linda was living with her mother and with crystal and Linda had been going through some things because she'd been through a ton of trauma so she was kind of figuring her things out and getting life back on track she meets Glenn Him with Glenn it didn't really make sense to upper crystal in move out of our room and move her in with Glen this new relationship so she stayed living with Carol who was Linda's mother in crystals grandfather and they'll lived really close to each other. They had two other cousins sentence for example where Linda was living in this area in apartment buildings in front of and behind where Linda was living cousins lived there. The MOM lived right up the street. The grandma like this was very tight wasn't like they were living on opposite sides of town Sunday night. My Grandmother had taken me to my mother's house after church rich and we were talking me and my mom had a bit of a argument I was wanting her to compete knee up and take me to school that we have around the boys anymore issues there for school me school and we saw today and we apologize for the way that and then. She told me we'll take you up in the morning from school for school and you know I'll feed in my job interview. You later love you force. Linda spent the day with her other sister. Marilyn and she came over with her husband and they spend some quality time together that day and at some point Glenn came over and the group decided to go to the sportsman's lounge on highway eighty and Jackson so on this night the thirtieth another strange thing happens there at the lounge there hang out there drinking and Glenn over. Here's Linda telling her sister Marilyn that she loved her interrupted their conversation any energy. He said don't be telling her that and Linda replied to him Glenn. I'm always telling my sister that the two sisters then went into the bathroom and Linda started crying the bathroom so this isn't cut. There's trouble in paradise. What a strange controlling trolling thing to do. What a strange thing to do yeah so Glenn Linda the appear to having one of those. It's all happening week type of things superintendents. Maybe this was part of it. maybe it was just going to flame out it was a poem home and that's it but this is what was going on their own knee. Monday night before all this happened her and my aunt Marilyn and my uncle Charles have went out to a bar drinking and clear had had gotten on the phone and made a phone call on the payphone and my mother and my aunt has went to the bathroom and my mom told my instead I need to talk to you. I can't talk to you right now. Though look out some things about Glenn and I'm scared she said I I need to come to your house tomorrow and we thought I need help figuring out something about that term. They heard banging. Hey on the bathroom door and the bathroom door slam open their screen grabbed my mother and my aunt Patriots home now and and my aunt Glenn calm down you know what's going on. He said I said take it home now. My you know I'll pay your home she. She just figured that he the gadget fitted out something. Maybe the phone calls take out though she drove him home and take it out of the car and she turns around and looks back through during this. You'll be nick okay. He's strong. He's he's just not that he maybe he gets way when he's throwing. She'd never seen him before. So the next day's Halloween in Linda told crystal that she would be there at her mother's House Crystals Grandmother's house at Carol's House to pick her up and drive her to school that morning. Tuesday morning enrolled around it was how Wayne Day and I get up. Get ready for school. I'm waiting my grandma's like well. You know your Mama's not here. You might have a few more minutes. She'll be here and I didn't mind it by criminals. You don't miss the buzz. I'M GONNA go ahead and take you to school. 'cause she. WanNa hand told me to school. We get home run smart. You know Demaim ever come out here now. I haven't seen the so even though Linda didn't show up to drive crystal school. No one really thought this was a catastrophe. It wasn't that big of a deal. There was a daily bus and and also the schools down the street carol could just easily drive crystal to school so it wasn't the end of the world. It was the nineties tech someone and say they were running late. Crystal just got to school and she figured that she was going to turn up and plus crystal was going to see her mom that night for Halloween because Linda's family was going to bring bring all the kids over to Linda complex trick or treat because obviously it was one of those places where you can hit a lot of places over and over again and a lot of lot of candy yeah and you can tell that just based on what they you said about the fair and that they have cousins living on other like all sides of each other. It's like they had a big family. There were tight knit and there was a bunch of them and they would congregate Gayton sort of every holiday celebration. WE'RE GONNA go to Linda's complex. There's a lot of you can hit a lot of house. You're going to get a lot of candy so the plan was for everybody would meet there and just make an event out of it but Linda sisters arrive to go and with our kids to trick or treat but Linda is still not there. Linda's mother comes up to the House with crystal and they could see through the window and they looked at the curtain to the shower curtain to the shower was actually pulled closed closed and four Linda's mother. This seemed odd because she thought to herself that Linda clean houses a lot and she would always leave that bathroom curtain pulled back and I think what we're talking about here. It's just like you don't leave the curtain closed because if you listen to a lot of true crime you know that like you don't don't ever want that close because there could be somebody behind there but you just leave it and I think I saw another interview with her where she describes Linda as an immaculate housekeeper where it's like. There wasn't isn't a SPEC. There wasn't anything hiding in the shower. It was spotless so she would have no problem up and get ready and go with family trickery Kaotry I had I had a nephew.

You'll just love him to death. He's precious. I found the love of my life so sweet. Glenn came down and shook her hand and he introduced himself golf and from that point forward the two were absolutely inseparable so Glenn was thirty three years old and he was from Ohio and he was actually in Jackson working on a construction crew building a new olive garden restaurant area interesting so Glennon kind of lived all over the the place he just come from California.
