Tenants are packed into eviction court as much as social distancing will allow when their cases are called. Tenants are asked this question by Judge Phyllis Gardner. Have you talked with anyone? Or are you interested in the rental assistance program? I've talked in case after case Gardner urges tenants to visit room 1 34 down the hall. Where Memphis area legal services attorneys help tenants start applications for rental aid. One of those attorneys, Frida Turner, stands up in the courtroom to speak about the program if you apply, and if you're approved We will pay up to 12 months of your back rent plus one month of futurist. We will bring you to zero and you'll get a fresh start a fresh start. That's what's new even if evictions aren't thanks to the billions in federal aid tenants who are behind have a chance to stay in their homes due to a federal court ruling in July. Judges here in Tennessee haven't been bound by the CDC order for more than a month. The judge Gardner, the CDC order delayed the inevitable while in Memphis, they started resolving cases. We've been able to deal with the problems to give these people and landlords some closure so that they can move on.

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here.

Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one
Jen Psaki Admits Biden Is Prepared to Leave Americans Behind in Afghanistan
"Don't believe me. Here's Jen Psaki from yesterday asked the question, I believe by Phil Wagman. Hey, you guys prepare to leave Americans behind and instead of her just being honest and saying, Listen This would be honest to be painful, but to be honest, it was a hasty withdrawal. Mistakes were made, but we feel I'm not suggesting is right. But I'm saying if this was them, and they do feel this way But we feel we need to get out of there. We're going to work on getting them out later. But yes, we are leaving them behind. That's not what they're doing. They're going to leave Americans by that would be done by the way, but they're going to leave Americans behind and they're going to actually blame them. There. They want to hang out. It's Afghanistan. We hear it's nice. It's great skiing in the winter. I don't know what they're thinking. But they are quadrupling down on this stupid narrative getting ready to blame Americans here, Jim Play cut one Months ago, and you said the commitment doesn't hand at the end of the month and that, despite obviously perfect remains during his remarks, Mom, let's go. The president said that we were going to try and get as many people as we can. Is he trying to prepare the American public for a sort of harsh reality that some Americans might still be left on the ground there? I believe. There are some Americans who may not have decided to leave by the 31st. That is possible. Many of these Americans who remain are dual citizens. They may have extended family members 20 family members, 30 family members, others who they want to bring with them and they're not ready to make that decision. Yet. Our commitment to them does not end we will continue to work to get them out. But his objective and focus and laser focus, which he asked for many updates a day on is getting every American who wants to leave out now in the next few days. That is what our US military is working to deliver on. Example. They're not. They're going to blame it on that
Short Term Rentals and Airbnb
"Recently i was scrolling through tick talk in the algorithms. We're working their magic. And they brought me to this video of this guy that was explaining how him and his wife made like seventy thousand dollars in one month pretty much. Almost one hundred percent passively from real estate investments. And when i heard this i was like. That's really cool like that's awesome. That's a lot of money but real estate investing. There's no way i'm anywhere near that. I mean i'm twenty four years old. I don't even own my own home to live in but that's cool. That's awesome for him. Maybe that's something that i'll get into one day. I know that. Recently i listened to episode five hundred of build your tribe were. My parents talked about real estate. Investments as a stream of income that they have and i was like cool. Maybe one day. When i'm in my late thirties. When i'm in my forties like that's a route. That i could go down but this video popped up on my tick talk for you page in it kind of sparked my interest so i was like all right. Let's see what else this guy has. Let's learn a little bit more about him. His name was michael dante and he posts tick toxin youtube videos mostly primarily around this idea of investing in real estate but his specific niche isn't commercial real estate or even rental properties but short term rental properties. And really even specifically within that niche. His expertise is an airbnb rental properties. Now if you have no idea what airbnb is airbnb short for air bed and breakfast his basically an app where you can rent out your home a portion of your home your guest home. You can basically rent out your space for people to come stam. I can tell you that myself personally. I almost exclusively stay in airbnb. He's i think of the last. Maybe fifteen trips. I've gone on fourteen of them. I stayed in an airbnb. And one time i stayed in a hotel. Airbnb is really increasing. Its popularity and this is in no way an advertisement for airbnb. But i think a lot of people recognize that for just about the same or maybe even a little bit less of a price. You can actually get a lot more with airbnb.
Return of the Air Horn? Jobs Friday July Edition
"Adding nine hundred forty. Three thousand jobs in one month is amazing for months. Economists luke pardew has been waiting for this moment and it came early this morning when he went to the website for the bureau of labor statistics. Just as the report dropped for the july jobs. Numbers you open the page. Your eyes go to that number. I saw that nine and i immediately was excited. Because we've been looking for this number. Every time i scan to the jobs report when i opened that page and scan to the nine. I was incredibly excited. Because that's the number we've been looking for for so long and there wasn't just one nine either. There were two nine one for last month month of july and also one for june which was revised up. It was especially good to see those numbers because for the last few months it has been such a strange thing to see. The job's getting added more slowly than expected strange because at same time as there were millions of unemployed people in the us there were also millions of open jobs. Companies desperate for workers and yet in march april may all those millions of jobs and those millions of workers. Just didn't seem to be finding each other until now. It's really hard to find a blemish in this report. You look worried. I've got my word face on this job to be worried about these things. Luke says there are two main reasons for his worried economist. Face today and both of them have to do with timing. I the season sometimes. Seasonal adjustment can screw up numbers that the s. puts out and we've seen large gains in education here which might be due to the fact that schools have been building up staffing over the summer. Luke says regular seasonal adjustments are tricky now because the job market has been going through such a strange time and he worries. This month's number might be a little bit artificially high
The Trauma and Grief of Being a Reporter
"I remember being in New York for 9 11 and I was actually down at ground zero when the American Express limited to our building was in danger of collapsing. And again things that you remember orange buckets arriving by the truckload. And I turned to one of the guys who were emergency crews who was next to it says that we're guiding us through the site. And I said what are the buckets for? And he said body parts. I know it. Yeah. And it was just like oh my God. And that's the aim for these people. And again you know you just think about each one of those buckets is a body or a person and it's a family and that's a life. The worst pieces of somebody are part of somebody. Yeah if you're lucky man. And so you take that with you. And then Jerusalem was a really tough geek way for a while. I mean I remember I think there's like 6 or 7 suicide bombings in one month. Right. That was the beginning of a big fan of the second. And unless you've lived through it you don't know what that's like. You can guess and you can try and you can be sympathetic and empathetic. But you don't know what that's like unless you're living there. Well you know I was living there and I am living there but I didn't see it up close. I had I had this tremendous I don't know what streak of luck that a lot of these things went off the day after I had been like right there. Right. It's terrifying. But you saw an Italian from the inside. You were at the tongue do you want to talk about that? For some reason we were the first cruise air and others had taken a long time to follow. And we managed to actually get inside the ballroom with this happen because it was to say to me of a Passover if people remember this and it was at that seaside hotel in natanya. And we were actually doing live shots walking through this ballroom that what had happened is because of the force of the explosion it set off the fire alarms. So the rumored flooded to the extent. And so basically we were sloshing around a mixture of water and blood and brains and flesh and everything that was like that was left over from the suicide bombing. There were bits of people skull still embedded. In the ceiling above us it was always left of it. And what had happened and this is what happens in television is that the producers in New York and D.C. though we saw the live shot that we had done for one of the early morning shows and the producers and donate this wrong way it's just how we talk and that's great TV. And TV horrendous but I know what you mean. Let's do it again. And so I had to do this thing over and over and over again walking through the blood. And like just every hour almost don't stop. And you know you kind of leave that thinking what the hell am I doing? Exactly. What that life I did with titania is that it actually for the first time on live television showed the world

Warehouse Manager Sells Twitter-Threads-as-a-Service
"That hugh alexander works as a retail warehouse manager by day. When he isn't thinking about the logistics of his job he's hanging out online looking for inspiration and ideas yet he also knows an idea is just the starting point making something in marketing. It is win. The real battle begins that was never more evident than his first attempt at starting a profitable project you had the technical know how to make a website but he fell short on finding an audience at least until matthew started noticing twitter threats now twitter threads for those who aren't familiar are a series of related tweets that tell a story or elaborate on a topic when two hundred and eighty characters isn't enough. Some people share their best tweets or connecting. Anything they feel requires the additional text for example. A thread might include a series of exercise tips or tips to improve your business. In a specific way it might be political commentary. It could be anything. In relation to matthews project. He'd seen a lot of twitter threads go viral and helped to significantly boost the poster's profile in number of followers with that audience. They could monetize their service and products at least potentially so he said about trying it for himself with his accounts and lo and behold things improved. He didn't set the world on fire overnight but his follower numbers increased after he started posting threats. Forever business-minded matthew. You saw an opportunity if twitter threads worked for others as well as himself might people be willing to pay for a service that wrote the threats for them. It was an unusual idea so he said about testing the concept. He purchased the domain name. Taas dot co that stands for twitter threads as a service and used a free website. Builder called card to launch. The site quickly card intern allowed for easy. Integration with stripe to process payments after customers paid macua. Direct them to a google form or they answered a few questions about their business objectives. That was all it took to be up and running for a cost of well under one hundred dollars being part of online communities such as indie. Hackers made validation a little easier. Matthew simply tugged on the strings and hopes of selling his twitter threads service. It didn't take too long to find his first customer and he charged fifty bucks for the first month in exchange he create ten threads and also offer scheduling as well as performance reports. Matthew analyzed customers content and audience but before actually doing the work. He made a confession. He told that customer they were his first one and he'd be using their account to learn feeling bad about it. Even offered a fifty percent refund on the purchase price. It turns out he needed to have worried. Because after the first month they were happy and wanted to keep going

Some Warn of Market Bubble, Bitcoin Bull Bill Miller Disagrees
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday july thirteenth. And we're talking about why bitcoin bill miller doesn't think it's a market bubble even though others seem to think so i up however let's the brief i other brief today it is. Cpi day and i don't need to tell you guys as regular listeners of the show how contentious debate around inflation is right now. The fed is invested in trying to convince everyone that the numbers are high but transitory based on specific dislocations related to the world coming out of corona wall street is invested. Because they're worried that the cheap money party will come to an in their minds. Premature end if the fed is forced to take action and raised rates. Bitcoin is are invested because inflation eating people savings and generally making their lives. Harder is a key part of their philosophical thesis for bitcoin. In the first place all of this added up gives the release of new numbers a pretty serious significance.

Five percent monthly and four point nine percent year over year. The big drivers of inflation are sort of what you'd expect. Increased demand particularly around things like travel. And they're also continues to be supply shortages. Although many commodity prices like lumber are starting to come back to earth there also shifts in employee expectations. A lot of people are making different. Decisions are looking to be paid more for the first time in a long time. Some of these costs are being passed on. Forty seven percent of small businesses rose average selling prices in may and that was the highest share since one thousand nine hundred eighty one now as always.

Cpi is up five point four percent year over year with june alone. Seeing zero point nine percent increase median price. To buy a home is up twenty. Three percent year-over-year wage growth is up three point. Seven percent

Little did i know there were too many a witness to miserable ever after everyone knew i was taken so i couldn't risk doing even a little flirting. At least every wedding guests automatically became a fidelity spy. I was happily in fully married for just five months until my husband came home. One day with the idea of traveling overseas for greener pasture. I was excited and immediately images of me. Walking on snowy pavements wearing some fancy winter were flashed in my mind but unfortunately they all went pouf when he added only he could go first. He would find a job and settled quickly. And then come get me. It didn't sound that bad. So i agree. I didn't even have a choice. Otherwise so all. I could do is to wish him well on see him off. We used to keep in touch regularly for the first month apart. But as the days it added on the lesser. I heard from him. All i got was his voice voicemail. Whenever i tried calling all my texts and emails were not replied then after some time what i heard at the other end of the line was that the number no longer existed. I began to worry that something bad had happened to my husband. Three months soon became three years here. I was aging way. too quickly. thanks to loneliness unsettled depression. I remember being so happy getting married. Because i finally had a ring on my finger so i would not be counted among the ladies who failed to grab a man in their prime years but looking at me now what was the point. At least they could have a bully. Make their desperate intentions known to any man who is interested but for me the ring which i wore proudly for the first five months after my wedding was now a chain choking me even as i dared to remove them in an attempt to find myself someone to comfort my lonely body and soul. I definitely come face to face with someone who attended my wedding and the first thing they would check with my ring finger
Match Game (MM #3761)
"The Maison with Kevin Nation as we go through life. We don't often realize how much the world changes around us. Sure technology is one thing but I'm just talking in general about culture. The thing that got me started on this was watching an old episode of Match Game. 76. The other day, the old Gene Rayburn show which they've redone Alec Baldwin is now the host of the modern version. But 1976 when I was in my teens it was quite racy for an afternoon TV show and it's quite funny to sit back and watch. But what's amazing to me is the references, the culture references, when they go like to the super match are nowhere near where they would be today. When somebody says House of blank, I first think House of Cards. He wasn't even a top-three answer. The leading answer house of ill, repute, what was the last time you heard that term? It's been a long time, times change culture changes, and our slang and a references. They change too. While I lived that time, I sure don't remember it. Of course, I was a Youngster back then but it's funny how times change the world changes and yes our culture changes in more ways than one month

"So he's he's he's out but if he comes back and his health and he can perform kind of the levels we saw in twenty twenty. He can definitely be really nice. Bullpen arm and you start looking at some of the guys. Cowl ryan look nice when he When the one game he pitched up in the billion big leagues before he sent back to the site. There's just a lot of a lot of really high potential pieces in in the cubs system as are coming up to the major leagues and one thing that's been really encouraging the cubs. Been kind of what these guys have done through the pitch lab through the site work through the minor league like you you know when when they come back up like i think when jason adam comes back up i think he can be. He's going to be a lot better than when he first came up when he was first up. I think that's one thing that we're gonna see as maybe a theme and i think justin seal's going to be a little bit more improved if we see him when when he's up now trevor miguel. We've obviously seen some signs of like. I think there's just something. I don't know what it is. I don't know what's in the. I don't know what's in the water right at the outsider or at the developments System with the cubs. But the pictures when they're when they come up here and we saw last year with advert li- like we talked about the slider like we. There's there's something there that that is going to improve these guys in and be beneficial for the cubs because bullpens are so volatile while 'til like you just need you just don't know who's gonna come up now when it comes to the guys down in the arm. We know the iowa cubs. They're gonna be playing games on marquee. Sports network's thursday may six seven o'clock on the dot the set. Your calendars synchronize.

"It was a bitch that isn't even a year old in terms of when allied developed it last year in south. Bend at the alternates site but it it's dynamic and it's changed him. He's already had really good stuff. Velocity that you mentioned. But guys like matt duffy and jake maricic faced him for the first time in spring training in live. Vp's there were raving about the stuff that he has in duffy said yes some of the stuff in the league so yeah i think it's it's it's a huge difference when you're talking about guys like you know kyle hendricks or davies. Were only throwing eighty nine ninety miles an hour to have somebody like Come in but just in general that have this piece for the rotation moving forward this young twenty six year old. Who is on his way up and clearly sending. I think it bodes well for the team. You're both this year and long-term yeah in one thing. That red really helps them out when it comes to throw in that wipeout slider is the fact that he started. Seventeen of twenty four batters. He faced yesterday or We'll recording this. On friday on thursday evening he first pitch strike the seventeen of twenty four batters. So when you can get ahead you can stay ahead. And that's what we saw from and that's probably one of the main reasons why he went so deepen. I expect next time. He goes out if he picked like he does or he like he has been. Maybe we'll see him. Go seven. I mean maybe to stretch it a little bit. Maybe you can. You can let them go surpass that one hundred pitch threshold and let them get there and show you what he's made of and then and then once oh seven inning games when you throw one hundred nine pitches sometimes if you're a little more efficient in the first second third inning then maybe that turns into eight and then eight innings turns into a complete game in and that's how you have to build like we said that competitive callous yet to know how to get there before you actually get there..

"Podcast analyst dig into the pitching staff because Taking a look and everything. That's gone on so far tony i have to say i'm a little bit worried. I'm somewhat prehensile when i see kyle hendricks and zach davies out there on the mound. I'm more apprehensive. With zach davies a little less with kyle hendricks i believe that cow hendrix a work things out. Maybe it's times seen a whole lot of a whole lot more of him in action with zach davies i. I hope he's able to right the ship. But i mean he's out there he's he's throwing eighty six he's not hitting spots has changed and you guys sitting back almost double clutching and licking their chops and the results from the opposition. Right now. it's not what you want to see if you're the cubs or Yet it's not certainly it's it's not what the anybody was expecting. Davies is a guy who was fifth in the national league a last year to seven four. Whatever it was and there were realistic. Like prop bets going around. Is david darvish going to have a lower era this year and i think there was actually a reasonable arguments. Make darvish is the better pitcher. He's the cy young runner up but there is certainly possible at davies could have had a comparable year a this season. That hasn't worked out. This is i believe the worst month of his career wise. This season admits certainly surprise it to him to to the cubs you know. He looked really good in spring. Training remember went like alien two-thirds innings or nine innings before giving up his first head through the first three or four spring outings as well so he like john. Peterson are two guys who were like awesome. Spring as newcomers can really endeared themselves to this new team in market and then the season flipped and they just haven't been able to perform that way. So yeah i i think the big key is wondering if wilson contraire help davies find something it has last star you know a couple of innings and told him to slide down on the mountain the little bit so maybe that would help. I'm not sure. But i definitely i'm with you on. Kyle hendricks a concern. Obviously at this point that he has seven and a half year eight through april. But he's going to right the ship and he'll figure it out it's just a matter of mechanics and things being a little bit too flat right now. But hendrix has proven time and time again that he might have a tough stretch but he'll he'll rebound in get back in his numbers at the end of the year will be there for a guy like anthony. Rizzo yup and you. How about a guy. Like jake arrieta. I mean this is the dude who can put out a fire with a gallon of gasoline. I mean he comes out there he gets after it. He's gone three times this year where he's throwing six innings for the staff and it seems as if every time he's on the mound that you have that feeling okay..

"Make an argument like this is why my guy is better than a guy who. He's not better than but his numbers say that he is because we've crunched all these numbers that we all these through the grinder and it shows that well if he would have done this or this guy wasn't playing. That makes him better like i. I don't know maybe. I'm just old dude wearing a turtleneck in the fanny pack in the club. The rock man. But there's something to be said for bre hits and getting on base percentage and walks and they they all go hand in hand but give me a guy who's going to get knocks. Every day of the week. I'll put in my lineup tony. I think you're right on that but the reason why people don't talk about it is because the guys aren't getting hits. I mean we've seen it which is a problem. It is one hundred percent agree with you on that. Like i like the jeff mcneil type players. That guys who who always hit over three hundred throughout their careers now. He's struggling a little bit this year. But yeah you want some of those guys on your team for sure. And and i think we've seen baseball again. This year there's this precipitous drop in hits and batting average and another increase in strikeouts. That's why they're talking about pushing the mound back a foot in the in the frontier lands in independent ball. So like then they're trying to find ways to make the ball in play more to help hitters out. But i am with you. There's obviously benesch shift away because powers in the air because you wanna get on base in workout draw free passes and everything too but there s you need a balance you need these guys. That can do both There tony gwynn doesn't really exist in baseball now. But you need a nick madrigal. Or jeff mcneil or matt duffy or something else combined with the guys like harvey by as will contracts and stuff you. The best lineup is going to be one. That has a blend of those guys can complement each other. And i heard what tony said. I wish i didn't hear that. But i i heard it talking about moving the mouse back and they've been playing this game for over one hundred fifty years and if there's any perfect game when it comes to dimensions it's a game of baseball like when they drew up sixty feet six inches. Who know who knew that. That would have been the perfect. Just i mean just a perfect storm when it comes to distance ninety feet all the way around who who would have known and when you look at them back and they're saying we'll all these pictures they just throw too hard we'll guess what all these hitters have come over the years when you're twelve years old. Twelve year olds now see faster. Pitching twelve year old did twenty five years ago. Sixteen year olds see faster pitching eighteen year olds. There's eighteen year old kids in high school that are. There's there's a handful of dudes at throw low nineties. You didn't see la a bunch. A whole high school staff back even in the nineties that through in the nineties..

"And then what's even like what more i guess in a way. Beautiful about the way matt ws hitting is his chase percentage seventeen point two percent so only seventeen point two percent of the time he's hitting he pigeons outside of the zone and when he is his contact rate is eighty two point four so when he's looking at pitches outside of the zone he's gonna make contact on them like he is just a professional. Hit right like it's so cliche. It so i don't know whatever you wanna call it like. He's not flashy player. he's not he's not gonna do some of the things that hobby by is can do. Our anthony rizzo can do but the do just puts the ball in play which a lot of times. That's all you need. I mean you think about the the rbi against the brazen the in the finale. I mean it was such a week. Rounder but he hit where were not like he. He hits it where there were as it and that that drove in a run. The it's just such a different approach and a at. I was very skeptical of him in the three spot. When it's when it first started happening and as you watch that bats and as you watch what he's doing at the plate like he is succeeding in that role. I think he can do it over the course of one hundred if he plays one hundred and fifty games. That's sustainable but to two or three times four times a week like a hundred percent. It's worth it to have that bad in the three hole or wherever to diversify the lineup of the cups out for sure. But it's crazy though any you just break all these numbers like the guy doesn't swing a bat. His contact rate is this that and the other but along the second. He can do it every single day if he's having these quality at bats what was beholding him back from being able to go out there and seize this opportunity. Because that's all i'm seeing from this guy. I mean i honestly you know if they don't like niko in that one whole i mean matt duffy's perfect candidate. Because he takes pitches he takes walks. He gets base oxy where it's pitchy just puts it through the other side. That's what she want from a leadoff hitter a guy that's set the table and that's what we're seeing right now from metal and i was just gonna say. I think the one thing that that david ross has mentioned in his stresses that you know when his guys that he can rely on that he knows what they can do over a four one sixty two like he knows that those guys are gonna come right. He knows that. Jack pierce is gonna come around. He knows that some of these other guys. Hobby buys wilson deters..

"I won't have to do as much as i thought i was expected to do. I'm sure he's feeling pretty good about that workload. That's that's coming ahead because all you're gonna have to do is just eight justin here do this and i'm just going to have a seat around week. Seven eight nine maybe and let you take the reins and then we'll see from there but let's get into the cubs. Talk is because we've seen a few different lineups but surprisingly so tony the cubs have some of the fewest different lineups in all major league baseball. Which is like. I said kinda surprising because it seems like every single day. You're tuning in. You're seeing a different line of whether it be jake. Rhythmic in center field or ian hat playing field. Anthony rizzo leadoff wasn't contrary to two. Or maybe he didn't wanted it doesn't really matter nico horner. He's at the top then. He's batting. eighth. I mean there seem to be so many different varieties of this lineup but right now the one that seems to stick is the one we saw last night or some form of it of a thursday night game when we saw jake meridiana. I mean he. He had some pop. Mad duffy in the three hole on a lot of people are like who in the world is matt. Duffy at duffy. Oh by the way. The two thousand and fifteen runner up to kris bryant rookie of the year so to see this tag in here and have quality of bats. Just exactly what we've been talking about all year long when you go up there and you put the ball in play. I i know the fan the small ball and not necessarily saying that these guys are playing small ball but with the quality at bad taking free passes. They're going the other way with it. That's what you want to see out of this lineup. Yeah it is and duffy is really a huge key to that. He's a guy that has always made a lot of contact and you know he. He talked about two after the mets series that he said there is a such thing as not good contact like he earlier. In one of the games against the mets he grounded into a hard double play. Hit it right into the shift but he also is a guy that's really tough to shift against because we've seen him beat the shift a times where he doesn't hit a ground ball super hard. It's not like he hits a rocket line drive or anything but he sneaks just past the second baseman who's playing a little bit more up the middle as they do against a of right handed hitter so yet your duffy and and just the ability. We see all the time. He doesn't chase a lot. He doesn't swing a swing and miss a time. Which is a different element to this team. So yeah duffy certainly brings something else and the guy that's gonna start every day or or even maybe six days a week for the rest of the year assuming everybody else's healthy and assuming when jock peterson return but i think he's a guy that can start to three times a week for this team moving forward and bring that different element that contact that little bit of small ball to to even out with all these other big boppers with all these power hitters that are in the lineup and differentiate diversify the lineup. A little bit so yeah. I think duffy's a piece moving forward. I don't think he's.

"I said the first round of the nfl draft it is underway and boy did it go down in grand fashion chicago. Bears surprised pretty much. Everybody as they made the trade up who they take will. They took a showstopper. They took justin fields from the ohio state university and andy martinez antonio draghi the role of me today. Guys i want to pick your brain first things first before we get into all that chicago cubs action but how about the bears. Tony going with justin fields. This guy who not only could he win games but he can win big games. We've seen him in some of the biggest stages in all college football for the chicago bears to finally have a quarterback that people are like if this guy plays his full potential and there's a chance that they can win the super bowl eh. the bears have been in the super bowl type situation before. But they haven't been there with a chance to win because of their quarterback just feels he gives you that shot to win maybe not immediately but at some point yet i mean and he gives you a chance to win so many different ways to with his leg with his with his arms like you know he. He brings the whole the whole element to to the quarterbacking position. But i also said he he help you with his leg like he's an amputee just feels incredible. You could should have it before. They had to cut his leg off the mobile need. No i'd keep you win a game. Just his left leg alone cole. Right leg to if if you felt like it but no his legs plural in his right arm has one arm but this is the most excited i think you know. I've been about a bears draft pick since twenty seventeen. Like i admit. I love the mitch pig. I thought it was good. I didn't like that. They traded up for it. But i thought it was going to be a good quarterback obviously on hold on hold on hold on alexa work. Your cole no disrespect to mitch trubisky. But you liked that pick you like the way that the san francisco forty niners bamboozled chicago bears and made them move up one.

"So you've laid out a pretty strong case. The jackson is in a really terrible but preventable situation. If only the political leaders will get together and figure it out. So i'm wondering what what next steps look like from here like republican senator. Cindy had smith is introduced a bill that aimed at providing some assistance to jackson. Have you had a chance to look at it. Yeah so. I actually wrote a piece on that bill and it's an interesting bill. There's a lot there that his is worthy of consideration. I also have a lot of questions about that bill. You know the bill does three things number one. It increases the authorization for something called the us army corps of engineers to nineteen project program Now that program is used to divert federal funds to infrastructure projects all over the country. The the problem with that. That part of the bill is that it increases an from twenty five million forty seven million but that authorization has been in place since two thousand seven. The money has never been a pro created to that authorization so people to. It's just been sitting there. I it's basically an iou sitting in in washington for jackson for jackson. He switched to a representative from jackson. Who worried that federal involvement actually might not help the stayed because it might mean that state. Legislators feel like they're kind of off the hook and they don't need to step in and help the city will let me be very clear. Federal involvement will absolutely help the state. I don't think there's any situation in which the state gets out of this problem without federal assistance. And i don't think that should be surprising because if you wanna go and you look if you wanna go and look back at the last time. The city really had a working water system. There was immense federal aid coming into the public works department to make the entire system whole. So when you wanna talk about how to get out of this situation you need improvement. At the level of the city you need investment at the level of the state and then you need involvement at the federal level I don't think any one of those pieces can be missing and the the problem to really be salt so i think his concern is not that off. Federal help might not be the federal involvement. Might not help but that With federal engagement the state will kind of bow out of the whole situation The state has to address the relationship it has with its capital city. It's just incredibly cheap and easy for Representatives and senators who don't live in the urban areas of the state to complain about jackson to You know it's canned heat. It's interesting. I was gonna ask you if you could wave a magic wand. What would you do to improve the situation in jackson and it's really the relationships and mending those. You're absolutely right. I mean it's it's about relationships at all levels between city and state between state and federal government between all of them. But it's also about trust. You have to repair that trust. You have to have people sitting in the room talking to each other. I really can't stress that enough.

"Quite some time and the problem. That mean like you live in jackson so aid your water bill. So what that means in the city of jackson And this includes me is you will not get a water bill for Months or a year And then you'll get all of that water bill. At once and this applies to individuals it applies to businesses. It becomes incredibly difficult to tell who what and when they owe it and that ends up damaging the city's enterprise fund now the enterprise fund is the revenue that then pays for repairs to the system and keeps it afloat. The city attempted to address this problem a little bit. Under a decade ago It entered into a contract with a corporation. I'm sure you're familiar with siemens And it was a ninety million dollar contract to install water meters and to create a new system that would really get the city current and the promise was hunt like over one hundred million dollars in savings For the city's water system that ninety million dollar contract with siemens turned into an absolute nightmare. Why because it turned out that none of it worked. The the city has been in litigation with siemens for years. I it finally. They settled that Early last year and the result of that was siemens repaying the city. Ninety million dollars or the full value of the contract Now it mean that it didn't work so people not getting their bills. Were the meteors not reading the amount of water properly. No part of the system played well together. But essentially what happens is because those systems don't work well together. None of them really remained after the contract they had to be removed and so the sum total of what happened with the city through the siemens contract is is basically. The city paid lawyers thirty million dollars in order to give an international conglomerate a ten year sixty million dollar loan at zero percent interest because they settled a lawsuit for the cost of the contract which was ninety million dollars and that's had to pay legal fees. It's great to settle the litigation for the cost of the entire contract. I mean the city did need to recoup that money but it still has to pay legal fees. Yes and then also you know. Almost a decade has passed without the initial problem being solved so now it feels like jackson is back at square one and they've lost decade and the billing system doesn't work and the pipes themselves are still not fixed. That's the long and short of it to get to the root of jackson's water crisis. Nick says you've gotta go back more than fifty years and talk about how. The city itself has changed because his water problem. It can't be disentangled from larger changes in the state of mississippi the desegregation of schools white flight in nineteen sixty nine The clock finally runs out on the state of mississippi segregated school system. We're all familiar with brown versus board of education. But in mississippi the real death blow to the segregated public school system was something called alexander versus holmes county board of education. The one thousand nine hundred seventy school year. Mississippi was like a lightning bolt. You can just see kids being pulled out of school. you can see The creation of a lot of these segregation academies many of which are still relatively regarded schools in mississippi. Today so things are changing and kind of cracking down going back to a really deeply segregated place well so it was already segregated the point but what you see then is a reaction to integration And the the result of that is that By the time the dust settles in nineteen eighty. Jackson never really seized population growth. Ever again at its height. I think the city had a little bit over two hundred thousand people today. The best estimate for that is hundred and sixty thousand. What does that have to do with the water. Well you build a water infrastructure for the people that you have at the time and what ends up happening. Is you build that system. And then you have white flight. You have capital flight. You have the suburbanization of of many of the metropolitan areas around the country and then that tax base now lives outside the city limits. But here's the thing. The city of jackson's swells day to this day You see people drive in from the bedroom. Communities and surrounding towns around jackson They use the roads. They use the utilities They go to work. And then they bring that money back to their communities and that's where the tax bases There's no like commuter tax. There's no bridge and tunnel fair to my knowledge. There is not nearly enough in support coming from the cities and towns around jackson To support the burden on jackson and that that extends to the level of the surrounding communities and the level of the state. We'll so here's a question for you. Which is you're saying jackson's who built it system to meet this larger population so to me. I hear that. I think oh well. Then they must have a really robust system with fewer people using it. How did that become a problem for the city. In nineteen seventy two there was a a serious amendment to the clean water act and what that did was it. It puts the burden of responsibility for a lot of the wastewater treatment in the municipalities around the united states on core of these metropolitan areas. At this time you do see the surrounding communities getting a lot of the benefit but the federal at the time knew what a burden that would be so a huge huge amount of this construction was supported with federal grants billions of dollars all over the country Went into building and expanding these systems. what you see as these systems expand and as these systems are built is by nineteen eighty seven in our era of austerity and federal pullback. There's a transition. We stopped paying for a lot of these systems with federal money. And it devolves to what's called the state revolving loan funds. Now you may notice the problem with that The issue with alone as that. It's loan so when you see an end to the federal money that supports a lot of these systems. There's then a system that's made for a certain population and that population is no longer there. That becomes a real problem for any city looking to keep it system afloat because you're having to maintain something that's much bigger than you need. You're having to maintain something that's much bigger than you need and you no longer the federal support that made it possible in.

When i was working nine to five working in the financial industry i worked for a company that gave us a boatload of vacation. Pto paid time off. And i would average between six to eight weeks of paid time off a year. And i was working so much between anywhere between low end of fifty hours a week to a high of seventy hours a week that if i didn't use it i would lose it. So what would happen by the end of the year. I was pretty much off. So i could literally take a week off for thanksgiving in. Nba off for Pretty much the whole month of december. And during that time. I did one thing. I've focused on me. And i focused on getting my business up on the things that i was passionate about. It felt really good that i got five week six weeks that i could just do whatever i wanted to do. And be able to focus my energy towards the things that made me happy but the other thing is it made me realize guys. I was working so much that i didn't give myself enough break during the year. And then i took it all at once not too healthy at all spacing out over time being better. Managers of time and paid time off is is huge. But that's not the the world i lived in. It's not the world that i worked in pretty much twenty four seven. You were working you know either. You were getting email your work on your laptop. I mean it was. It was pretty much. Didn't matter if i was home or at work. I was working in the things that i wanted to do. In focus on like this business they all suffered because of that. But then i found for four to five weeks. I found happiness. I really was able to focus on me and the that made me happy. And it's like this. Is the feeling that i wanna have all the time. I wanna feel like i'm never working the old adage out there but it didn't happen. It took a while it was a lot of grinding. It was a lot of putting things in place in being patient and persistent about what was going on in my life in knowing that i couldn't just jump off the side and say okay. I'm ready to go. It just didn't happen that way. But during that whole journey there was a lot of painful times that i felt like i was doing a disservice to myself because i couldn't work on the things that made me happy but i seem to be the happiest every year when the win my four to five weeks. Six weeks came around. That i would be off and all i had to worry about was me my family the things that i wanted to focus on and not all these other crazy things going on at work so guys find your happiness.

"Like we said though the Real Mardi gras celebration started in earnest in Mobile Alabama. Right yes so. He named the thing. I don't know if he actually celebrated Mardi Gras but he named that little area. He named that area Ponto Mardi Gras but the so that was sixteen. Ninety nine apparently four years later Immobile before it was even a town. They celebrated their first like Mardi Gras party. Or whatever or something like that. The fort and the New Orleans was Inc founded in seventeen eighteen and they started having Mardi gras parties like shortly after that so resolved very close to the beginning of the eighteenth century everybody started having Mardi Gras and it was like directly from the French influence in the area. And if you look into the early eighteen. Hundreds like the eighteen twenties and into the eighteen thirties. This is when you start seeing a little bit more of what we're talking about as far as Carriages that are decorated People parading in masks walking on foot. Yeah well at this point or encourages. It was largely spontaneous though Church there. Just be people partying on the street wearing mass. Yeah let's talk that way. Yeah they did and then other people will walk that way too and all of a sudden you had A. That's right but the thing is these this revelry on the streets because everybody was indulging in the pointless like jolt but really really overindulge. This wasn't just your average like village party the centre everybody was getting trashed even back. Then and so people were getting in fights and people were copson horses kicking people right off of their feet. All sorts of crazy stuff was happening. It was cops New Orleans And so the the city the city leaders were like. We're not going to do this anymore. This is out of hand and an eighteen fifty seven. I believe a group of Actually from what? I saw transplants for Mobile. Who were members of a group called the Cow Bellion Durant in society. More cowbell sure they They said hey how about. This will actually organize a legit parade in. It'll be much more orderly. There won't be this chaos and they formed the mystic crew of Thomas or Komo yes so. There's a lot of cases in place of Sees Mystic K. But it doesn't look scary like we talked about right. Oh does it to you well not mystic crew but it depends on what follows mystic. 'cause it could look creepy to me okay. but crew is spelled with a k. r. e. w. e. and we should go ahead and talk a little bit about what a crew is. Yeah it's It's a group of people who get together and Technically they are like legit nonprofits and as they get larger at least via the charity organizations. They're supposed to be. Yeah and they are sort of the group of people who would get together and say this is our gang and we're going to Gang in a good way and we're GONNA make afloat and do this theme this year and then all get together and get super drunk. Probably not even I bet you there's a a non drinking crew like one gotta be there has to be at least at grew right but they They they they were anonymous originally like they were yesterday groups that were like out and proud in public but like they wore masks like their identity. Really was anonymously. You were an anonymous member of this group. Try and and Over time now people like the anonymity is not quite as important and it is to some though I think I think sometimes they take it serious new still. Yeah I mean not in like I don't know maybe you can't get kicked out it. Might it might be more of a light hearted thing but I think generally they try and still respect the the masks on approach sure. Okay all right but I mean like if you told somebody like I'm a member of the Crew of wrecks or something like that kick you out taking your mask off during the parade specifically think so. Yeah so we'll hear about it. We got that wrong. We definitely they grew from these little tiny societies into very large groups Well funded almost across the board. Yeah because they're supported by do's and they put on parades and balls masquerade balls on the night of Mardi Gras and Some of them are just really enormous. Have like big name. Celebrities like huge bands that play and yeah nominate a person to be like the leader. The King or Queen. Yeah each year. Yeah like you could. They could say Josh Clark. We want you to come down. They could and be the king of our crew this year. Right and that's how it started back in eighteen fifty seven I think is eighteen. Seventy two that. The first King of a crew is nominated right but eighteen. Fifty seven was when the mystic crew of Komo's Had what's now looked at the first As the first kind of modern Mardi Gras parade and Aside from a few years where like world wars interrupted things. They've been doing this every year since then. Yeah there's another so eighteen. Fifty seven was a big year. Eighteen seventy two. That I mentioned was another big year because that year the The traditional Mardi gras colors were added. I believe by the crew of wrecks. And there's a lot of A lot of misunderstanding supposedly so that year the crew rex named as their king or the the leader. I can't remember which one he was. The Russian Grand Duke Alexi who was from the House of Romanoff and they said well these colors came from the house of Romanov the gold the green and the purple that we also see it with with Mardi Gras. This is absolutely not true. The House of Romanov has like red yellow and blue. I believe or their colors. But that's just the legend that came about but some other stuff that year like the idea of electing a king through your Mardi Gras parade Throwing beads for the first time happen that year. Yeah the song the yeah the song what. What is it if I ever cease to You've never heard it actually so you I bet you if we played it you might recognize it. So the colors though purple stands for Justice Green for faith and gold for power supposedly. I'll just made up out of whole cloth here and the idea with the beads was supposedly originally that you would toss these two people. He thought exemplified these traits. I'm not sure how accurate that is. Either Now it is. Of course morphed into another tradition which. I don't even know if that's still going on why. Hey Mr throw me something. Throw me something Mister Mister. Throw some combination of those words. I'll show you something and you throw me something. Oh that's different so I think it went from. You look like you're involved in justice. Here's some beads to there's this traditional call. I think Mr Throw me something. Okay and then. I think it morphed into the boobs thing that you just did that literally quieter. But I don't even know you know with all the advancements we've made in the past few years if people are doing that anymore. I would like to know about that because I'm not going to go down to Mardi Gras. How come to New Orleans jazz fest? Not Mardi Gras. Yeah and I'll have a blast. Sure but I'm not going to go to this things when we were there last October. Think so yeah and there's candy in the streets in I'm like there's no way this is leftover for Mardi gras parades all the that. I was wondering yes. Do they. Just do it. All the time I mean every time I've been there have been parties. Parades just just seems like one of those towns where they're always getting down right throwing candy Should we well? I guess we should say quickly if you're before we break if you'RE GONNA go. We're not discouraging ago right But planet advance. Because it's not the kind of thing we're on a the week before you can be like. Hey Dude let's go man. I think you can go under US auspices for sure but you'll be sleeping in the van really different kind of experience hotel. You're in advance. Yeah you won't get a hotel. You won't be able to eat emeralds or anything like that. Now she planned far in advance. You could storm immortals which people who sleep in vans and talk like you just did you all right.

"Thirty day trial I've been using the Apple Watch series five since just after its introduction back in September I posted my initial review complete with all the little technical details about all the new stuff worked I'm Rene Ritchie and this Apple Watch series five review one month later every year I swear I'm going to buy the Aluminum Apple Watch it's sleek it's slim it does everything Apple Watch can do for a lot less money than any other apple watch finish can do it then. Apples materials team hits me was something completely new in that first year with the series zero it was stainless steel with a black diamond like carbon coating so strong that anytime I thought some other metal it was series one it was white ceramic it looks shockingly bright like the original ipod bright but felt like something from a high end watch you watch company which is athlete what apple had rapidly become year three and series three was gray ceramic I didn't like the look anywhere nearly as much as the white because it wasn't anywhere nearly as addict less like stormtrooper more like storm clouds but it was new and such a sucker for New Year four and series four was gold steel I wasn't with series five I was serious aluminum sticking with aluminum even though apple brought back the white ceramic and it looked every bit as imperial as ever they also went and added something new again titanium both brushed and DLC block and like I said I am such a sucker for new I had the space black it first but ended up exchanging it for the brushed metal because I decided I wanted titanium to look like titanium like metal like eight hundred endo skeleton they're both distinctive though and neither really resembles their stainless steel counterparts it's way lower key than the Polish stainless steel almost closer to the silver aluminum so certainly not for their showy offy more for the confident chill same with the space black it's not the same batmobile black stainless steel closer to the Space Grey Aluminum Dan.
