Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning! Today's question: In the 1880s, businessman LaMarcus Thompson hated that Americans were tempted by hedonistic places like saloons and brothels. So he set out to straighten up one of the most immoral places he could think of: Coney Island in New York. There, he invented something to give New Yorkers some good, clean fun—away from seedier pastimes. It cost $.05 at the time, what was it?

American Veteran: Unforgettable Stories

When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Frank DeVita wanted revenge.  He enlisted in the Coast Guard, his quickest way into service.  His mom figured he'd “patrol a beach on Coney Island.” Instead, on D-Day, he ended up on a landing craft transporting soldiers to the slaughterhouse that was Omaha Beach and ferrying back shocking numbers of dead and wounded. It was a story that he bottled up for seventy years.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for October 18, 2021 is: zaftig • ZAHF-tig • adjective Zaftig means "having a full, rounded figure"—in other words, "pleasingly plump." // Portraits of zaftig models are exhibited in the artist's collection. See the entry > Examples: "The photography exhibition revels in depictions of Coney Island, including Lisette Model's widely-reproduced 1939-40 portrait of a zaftig woman  … laughing as waves lap at her feet…." — Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland, Ohio), 29 Aug. 2021 Did you know? Zaftig is one of a number of Yiddish-derived words that entered the English language during the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. It comes from Yiddish zaftik, which means "juicy" or "succulent" and itself derives from zaft, meaning "juice" or "sap."

http://www.attractionchecklist.com - This episode we head to Disney California Adventure to learn about and ride the Pixar Pal-A-Round.  Recorded on May 18, 2021. TRANSCRIPT: Welcome to Attraction Checklist. This episode finds us on Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure to take a ride on the Pixar Pal-A-Round.  This attraction actually has two descriptions on the Disneyland Resort website.  The first, for the standard version says: Take off on a classic Ferris wheel adventure high above Pixar Pier.  The second, covering the swinging version of the ride reads: Climb aboard for an exhilarating Ferris wheel adventure that swoops, swings, and slides—high above Pixar Pier. There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes the standard version a Slow Ride and the swinging version as having Small Drops. Before we get a spectacular view of Disney California Adventure, here are five fast facts about the Pixar Pal-A-Round. 1.  The Pixar Pal-Around is a Disney California Adventure, opening day attraction, having opened with the park on February 8, 2001.  When it opened it was known as The Sun Wheel.  In 2008, it was renamed Mickey's Fun Wheel.  And on June 23, 2018, it was renamed once again to the Pixar Pal-A-Round. 2. The original inspiration for the Pixar Pal-A-Round is the Wonder Wheel found at Coney Island in New York. 3. The Pixar Pal-A- Round rises above Pixar Pier a towering 150 feet or 46 meters. 4. The Pixar Pal-A-Round is unique for a Ferris wheel in that 16 of it's 24 gondolas ride on interior rails that created a, sometimes wild, swinging as the wheel rotates. 5. Each gondola features the image of a different Disney and Pixar character. Spot favorites like Woody, Buzz, Dory, Nemo, Mr. Incredible, Joy, Sadness, Lightning McQueen and more. Let's take a whirl on the Pixar Pal-A-Round.  And yes, I chose the signing option.  After we ride I'll give you my thoughts on this attraction.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we ride the Pixar Pal-A-Round at Disney California Adventure.

Brothers Joe, Michael and Jimmy Quinn grew up in Brooklyn, NY, hearing all about Feltman's of Coney Island. The iconic beachside eatery was founded in 1867, by Charles Feltman, a German baker and entrepreneur whose claim to fame was inventing the world's first hot dog and selling them by the thousands to Brooklyn area beachgoers. Feltman died in 1910, but his legacy and his business was carried on by his family until it was forced to close in 1954. Having heard about the legend that was Feltman's for decades, the brothers vowed to one day bring Feltman's of Coney Island back from the ashes to its rightful place as a viable brand in Brooklyn and beyond. That dream was initially shattered after Jimmy Quinn tragically died when the World Trade Center office he was working in was destroyed by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. To honor their youngest brother, Joe and Michael resurrected the Feltman's brand in 2015. In this week's MEAT+POULTRYPodcast, Joe Quinn talks about the history of Feltman's and how it captured the hearts and appetites of his family and became a labor of love he and his brother relentlessly pursued. Since reviving Feltman's, the brothers have seen it emerge as the fastest-growing hot dog company in the country, carried by more than 300 Whole Foods Markets, more than 1,100 Publix grocery stores and with online sales that have grown exponentially each year. Joe also discusses the company's new bacon offering and how this was the next logical step in extending Feltman's growing product line. Joe tells an inspirational story of the two food entrepreneurs motivated by a shared commitment to tradition and honor.

About the Book… In the spirit of The Orphan Train and Before We Were Yours, a historical debut about a nurse who chooses to save a baby's life, and risks her own in the process, exploring the ties of motherhood and the little-known history of Coney Island and America's first incubators. A nurse's choice. A daughter's search for answers. New York City, 1926. Nurse Althea Anderson's heart is near breaking when she witnesses another premature baby die at Bellevue Hospital. So when she reads an article detailing the amazing survival rates of babies treated in incubators in an exhibit at Luna Park, Coney Island, it feels like the miracle she has been searching for. But the doctors at Bellevue dismiss Althea and this unconventional medicine, forcing her to make a choice between a baby's life and the doctors' wishes that will change everything. Twenty-five years later, Stella Wright is falling apart. Her mother has just passed, she quit a job she loves, and her marriage is struggling. Then she discovers a letter that brings into question everything she knew about her mother and everything she knows about herself. The Light of Luna Park is a tale of courage and an ode to the sacrificial love of mothers. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/freeman-means-business/support

117- Detroit Exoneree Eric Anderson Reflects on 9 Years Wrongfully Incarcerated for a Brutal Robbery

Open Mike Podcast

In April 2010, Eric Anderson was arrested and charged for involvement in a robbery and beating of two men outside their Detroit home. At the time of the crime, Anderson was actually at a Coney Island, ten miles from the scene, where he was shot in the foot, necessitating immediate medical attention. Despite hospital records confirming his treatment, and Coney Island security footage substantiating his injury, Eric would spend nine years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, asserting his innocence the entire time. The Michigan Innocence Clinic re-investigated Anderson's claims of innocence and, following an interview with the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office's Conviction Integrity Unit, his sentence was vacated on April 30th, 2019. How did such a convoluted chain of events transpire when multiple pieces of evidence corroborated Eric's claims of innocence? Why was he allowed to languish in prison for so long when it was clear he couldn't have committed this robbery? Tune in to this mind-blowing, all-new installment of Open Mike to find out! Show Notes [00:01] Welcome to Open Mike! [00:20] Eric Anderson's background and bio. [02:10] Welcome to the show, Eric. The story is kind of crazy and convoluted but, not to do a spoiler alert, you're out of prison after spending nine years wrongfully incarcerated. Let's show how ridiculous this conviction was. [03:10] April 18th, 2010, about 3:30 in the morning. Tell us about your stop at Coney Island. What happened there that led to you being shot in the foot? [04:14] You walk into the Coney and almost immediately get shot in the foot. Then what happened? [06:02] You didn't want to go to Detroit Receiving Hospital, which was closer, you chose to go to Sinai Grace because that's the hospital you were familiar with? These facts become very relevant to your trial later. [07:05] Were you released that night, or did they keep you overnight? [07:38] At the same time of your shooting, two armed men with their shirts pulled up over their faces robbed 20-year-old Gregory Matthews Jr. and a friend, 19-year-old Stephon Tolin, on the street outside Matthews's home in Detroit, Michigan. Did you know these two people? [08:37] This happened a few miles from the Coney Island you were shot, is that true? [10:05] One of the witnesses said they heard a gunshot as the assailants were turning a corner, which was included in the police report. [10:30] Ten days later after you were shot, what happened? [11:23] Police pulled over Eric (and his friend who was driving) and told Eric he was under arrest; they believed he robbed Gregory and Stephon and shot himself in the foot. [11:44] Do you know how you became a suspect? [14:25] Two weeks after Eric's arrest, they transported him to Michigan State Police to take a polygraph test. [16:28] To this day, you've never seen your face on surveillance footage from that Coney Island. But your distinctive, Ed Hardy jeans, tight hair, and other identifying markers could tie you to the scene of your shooting. Is it clear that, when you walk in, that's you? Does the video show you getting shot in the foot? [18:30] When you got the polygraph, did you have an attorney yet? [18:56] For anyone watching… the second you are under arrest, stop talking and get an attorney, and let the attorney walk you through this process. [19:10] You took the polygraph… did they tell you right then and there that you failed it? What did they say to you? [19:43] In September 2010, Eric was offered a plea of probation. He declined because he didn't commit the crime. [20:40] Eric was confident that people upholding the system of justice would do the right thing, and he declined to hire an attorney to save money. [22:59] Two months later, Eric went to trial with a court-appointed attorney who improperly represented him, and didn't show the jury the surveillance footage, despite Eric's urging. He provided the jury video stills instead. [24:39] One of Eric's friends who was also implicated in the crime, yet not arrested, testified on Eric's behalf. [25:21] What was the prosecution's case? [26:44] The angle of Eric's bullet wound proved that he didn't shoot himself. His court-appointed attorney didn't recruit any expert medical witnesses to verify. [27:40] Who did the prosecution put on? These witnesses who said they saw you pistol whip and rob these guys? [29:47] Did your defense attorney cross-examine these witnesses? [30:45] The location of the robbery in respect to Sinai Grace seems to be what hurt you in trial. Where about did the robbery occur? How many miles is that from Sinai Grace? [32:11] How did they argue that you would have even known about that shooting while you were at Sinai Grace? How is that even possible? [33:17] Despite all of these defenses, you were convicted on November 5, 2010, of two counts of armed robbery, assault, and illegal use of a weapon. What did you think of that guilty verdict? [34:18] Did you ever think the truth would come out after that massive sentence? [34:32] Two years later, the Michigan Court of Appeals vacated your assault conviction, because it was multiple punishment for the same offense. But upheld the other charges and resentenced 12 to 20 years plus two years for weapons charges. That was basically a technicality issue. But you did something smart and, in 2018, got the Michigan Innocence Clinic involved. How did you do that? [36:40] The Michigan Innocence Clinic convinced the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office Conviction Integrity Unit, upon their own investigations, to vacate Eric's convictions. [37:46] Tell me about the person who admitted to the crime you were accused of committing. How did you find out who did it? [38:47] The actual perpetrator was serving prison time for a different time and offered to admit to the crime. But you didn't take him up on the offer. That's curious to me! [40:05] The perpetrator also sent Eric a signed affidavit saying he committed the robbery. [41:01] You're doing twelve years of prison time for a crime you didn't commit, and you have compassion for this guy to not add on to his sentence! It sounds like a smoking gun that could have gotten you out sooner. Did the Michigan Innocence Clinic use this information? [43:32] A breakdown of the hospital records demonstrated that Eric couldn't have committed the robbery. [44:12] How long after the Conviction Integrity Unit interview were you released? Can you tell me about that day? [47:53] Did anybody from the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office apologize to you?   [49:17] Eric and the National Registry of Exonerees are pushing for greater awareness of the wrongful conviction crisis that has been plaguing the American criminal justice system. [50:53] You've been out for two-and-a-half years… how difficult has it been to reacclimate to society? [51:21] You did receive some compensation from the state of Michigan, correct? What about the federal government? [54:48] One of the reasons we do these shows is so that potential jurors will do the right thing, look at things with the right skepticism, and put the proper weight behind their decision. Because these wrongful convictions happen all the time and people need to hear about these stories. [55:29] Did the man who committed these crimes ever get convicted? Have you spoken with him? [56:23] Thank you for coming on the show. I'm sorry for what you went through and am grateful for your advocacy work to help change some of these laws. [58:10] Thank you for watching Open Mike with another wrongfully convicted person, right here in Michigan. Eric Anderson spent nine years in prison for a crime he absolutely could not have committed. Another heartbreaking story. Lots of thanks to Eric for sharing his story. Like, share, comment, subscribe, and give us feedback on what you'd like us to cover next. Until next time!

This Spirit Was First Called Rumbullion And May Have Planted The Seeds Of Rebellion. Welcome to August 16th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the need for speed and the spirit of the islands. Roller coasters attract adrenaline junkies to amusement parks around the world. These rides are thrilling and sometimes scary. But oddly enough, they were invented to keep people away from drinking and gambling. LaMarcus Adna Thompson built the first roller coaster in Coney Island, New York and it became very popular. The cars were powered only by gravity and sometimes hit top speeds of…6 miles an hour. The ride only cost a nickel, but people would ride it multiple times. A tradition that lives on to this day. On National Roller Coaster Day, take a trip down memory lane or choose something a little more wild. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.  And in the 1600s when sugar production was booming, life gave the West Indies lots of molasses.  This byproduct mostly went to waste until it was discovered that a delicious spirit could be distilled from it.  Rum was first recorded in Barbados as rumbullion or kill devil and indeed it caused quite a stir.  It is said that British sailors received regular rations of the liquor from the 18th century all the way through 1970.  But when England began heavily taxing the Colonies for their sugar, molasses and rum a rebellion started brewing.  Today this spirit inspires party drinks with umbrellas and on National Rum Day we celebrate with one of life's best examples of turning lemons into lemonade. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.
