This week we have Jared Fisher joining us for the interview.  Jared has biked across the country multiple times.  He's also the CEO of Escape Adventures, which is a cycling-tourism company.  Bill experienced their hut system.   "The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers."

Weather and water temp reports - American River (Folsom), CA water temperature in October (seatemperature.info) On Wednesday the temperature was 59.0     What's New in the 303:   Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock   In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau.   The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins.  Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins.   The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel.   Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away.   The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision.   The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.”   Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.”   The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.     Upcoming Guests Matt Bach from TriDot Justin Metzler @bigmetztri     Video Of The Week 2021 IRONMAN California Race Recon Webinar Presented by RaceX John Mayfield, TriDot Director of Community September 21   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it! Stay tuned, train informed, and enjoy the endurance journey!

The Seven Streams Method

Download II Chronicles 17-23 We are in the Nation Stream reading from the Easy-to-Read Version. 7streamsmethod.com | @7StreamsMethod | @serenatravis | #7Streams | Donate Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis Lord, we read of all the tumult today, the good and bad that come and go and we want to simply pause and escape the chaos that accompanies the evil people. Lord, keep US in your will, your hand, and in your sight. Amen. 17 - Jehoshaphat becomes the new king.  He was for the most part good.  He resembled his father Asa, who was good for 39 of his 41 years. Remembered his refusal to “take things to God” the last two years of his life?  Notice the same motif in verse three in this chapter, “…in his young life he did the good things…”  Jehoshaphat obeyed and sought our the Lord's advice most of the time.  Let's learn what we can from him and not gloss over the things Jehoshaphat erred in. Remember, is it ok for a boat builder to fix ‘most' of the leaks?!  Yeah, you get what we're saying Jehoshaphat sent teachers across Judah to teach the Law of The Lord.  This is good. The people are strengthened as is the nation because of it. The neighbors start bringing gifts to stay on Judah's good side.  The army is trained and tallied at 1,160,000 battle-ready soldiers who were smartly stationed across the kingdom. Do we realize that their army in a kingdom that was far smaller than the US State of Rhode Island was larger than the US Army is as of 2016? Judah was a country that was stocked, fortified, fed and ready to defend itself. 18 - The first thing that ought strike at our hearts is “why is Jehoshaphat dabbling with darkness?” He conspired with Ahab&Jezebel to have their daughter and his son marry. Gee what kind of gem might that young lady be?! So Jehoshaphat and Ahab are side by side and conversing. Not only are their children married. He later goes into battle with him. It's foolish! Hint: Ahab and Jezebel are utterly dark souls. Don't do deals with the Devil, ditch him.        Later Ahab needs a word from a prophet regarding war with the Arameans, but he wants to hear what he wants to hear; not the truth.  It's like the Neil Diamond lyric, “pour me a drink and I'll tell you some lies.” Ahab prefers ‘go ahead, lie to me'.  And he likes it that way!   Jehoshaphat has had plenty warning but he doesn't cut these ties with Ahab.  Micaiah is a truthful prophet and he has enough presence of mind to toy with Ahab and obviously/openly reveal to Ahab that Ahab prefers to be lied to v.s. told the truth.  As Micaiah prophesies the drama is intense, and he pays for telling the truth - but lying would have been far more costly. We just read it so it doesn't need to described again.  Ahab proceeds into war, gets drilled, and dies. 19 - Though Ahab dies, Jehoshaphat returns from battle. Consequently the scolding he receives from Jehu is warranted.  Next Jehoshaphat places judges around the country. This is reminiscent of Moses getting Jethro's advice in Exodus 18 to appoint judges to spread the work around v.s bottle-necking everything through him like control-freaks tend to do. 20 - The encounter here is a very famous one. Enemies are coming to eliminate Judah. The Lord's help is needed immediately. They cannot afford to lose this battle to Ammon and Moab. It's basically D-Day and Judah, led by Jehoshaphat, had to win. They consult the Lord - something Jehoshaphat did not do enough - but he did so here.  His prayer in the open meeting is legendary.  The reply from God comes via Jahaziel. The plan of marching to battle with the worship singers leading the pack was Jehoshaphat's orders. Memo to all of us: worship first and God can work His plan on our behalf. The enemy turns on itself and completely obliterates the threat (not one survived!). It is a victory for Judah AND a payday. How long does it take you to rake up your autumn leaves? Well imagine having so much cash bills dropped on your lawn that it takes three days to rake it all up and put it in bags. That is what Judah and Jehoshaphat are dealing with here. This time they listened to God and worshipped first instead of negotiating with evil people.  The rewards were staggering.   To summarize Jehoshaphat's reign, he did well a lot of the time but could have done it God's way all the time and everywhere but he didn't. His attempt at partnering in a shipping company was a disaster. Yes his faith in God was admirable but his concurrent dabbling with dark people marked his life as well. 21 -   Jehoshaphat's dubious commitments end up plaguing his children as well. His son Jehoram, whom Jehoshaphat arranged to marry Athaliah - daughter of Ahab/Jezebel - was as wretched as can be.  He removes his brothers from the scene [murder], so to eliminate any threat to his power- so all is well… right?! Tell me about it!  This is put in there at the opening of Jehoram's reign to tell us what kind of man he was.  The fights of his entire rule begin in his own heart. He is against God and his own family.  So God turns on him. Soon all his neighbors turn on him (he unwittingly asked for it!). And at the end of his life the fight comes right home to him and into his own guts. Did you catch the misery he was in at the end of his days. It was revolting. Even his own people got rid of him as quickly and quietly as possible. Everyone was relieved to have him gone. 22 -  Ahaziah is chosen king. He is grandson of Jehoshaphat on his father's side and Jezebel on his mother's side. So he is from a partly good family …and v.v.  Well, how does a car roll when half it's tires are inflated and half are flat? You get the message. But Ahaziah's parents were both bad though his father Jehoram was raised right, sort of. He allies with Joram; the King of Israel (his ancestors were equally mistaken to do this). This has him encounter Jehu who kills them both since Jehu was on a blitz to wipe out Ahab's entire family. This enrages Athaliah; Ahaziah's mother. She retaliates by killing all the king's children in her scheme to assume power.  Athaliah was raised by Jezebel, remember?  The next in line for the throne, Joash, is hidden in the Temple for six years while Athaliah ran Judah illegitimately for those six years. 23 - This is a house-cleaning chapter.  It is a comprehensive plan to rid the country of Athaliah and the residue of Baal she brought in since being a daughter of Jezebel who was raised a Sidonian pagan.  Jehoiada took leadership in bringing the priests together, arming them all and arranging for the elimination of Athaliah. The Temple rule is played perfectly, which drew Athaliah past her boundary.  The king-in-hiding had been carefully brought into place and we just read the illicit accusation of “treason” and consequently evil Athaliah is taken out and disposed of.  With an evil queen gone, with a priest coordinating matters, with a good [though young] king newly enthroned, Judah was set to have some good years.  All Joash had to do was stay on the path that the Priest Jehoiada had brought them down so far?  Would he stay on this right path?

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 22nd, 2021. Pfizer says a booster shot of its vaccine boosts prevention of symptomatic cases back up to 95.6%. And this data was compiled when Delta was the prevalent strain. The CDC seems to be booster backers. Yesterday we told you they've decided mixing and matching boosters and original vaccines is okay. And, after saying those who got the Pfizer vaccine months ago are already eligible for a booster, they've added Moderna and Johnson & Johnson takers to that eligibility. The government says getting first shots to the unvaccinated is still the priority. And so far, the public seems to be open to booster shots, certainly more than the number of people who are still considering getting the initial doses. The CDC reports there are 1.3 times as many boosters administered each day compared with first shots. And the FDA may soon lower the age range on its emergency use authorizations for boosters, depending on safety data. Infections and deaths in Ukraine surged to all-time highs yesterday. Its vaccine inoculations are among the lowest in Europe. With a choice of four vaccines, only about 15% of the population is fully vaccinated. Only Armenia has a lower level. Restrictions are in place for public places and public transport. Our question for today, are new variants of the coronavirus just going to keep emerging? Well, experts at Penn State say yes. But only if the virus can keep finding infectable people, because inside people is where new variants are made. Over half the world is still unvaccinated, so there are plenty of bodies to mutate in. However, these experts say that doesn't necessarily mean new variants will be more dangerous. Why? It needs to adapt to us in order to spread more widely. Killing us doesn't help it. Still, emerging variants are closely watched to see if they evade the protection we develop from vaccination and infections. In the United States cases were down 25%, deaths are down 15%, and hospitalizations are down 19% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,522,759 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: New Hampshire 33%, Michigan 24%, Colorado and Minnesota 13%, and Wyoming and Montana 6%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Goshen, WY. Bethel Census Area, AK. Stark, ND. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. Matanuska-Susitna Borough, AK. Pecos, TX. Inyo, CA. Fremont, WY. Humboldt, NV. And Glacier, MT. There have been at least 733,064 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 70.6%, Connecticut at 70.1%, and Rhode Island at 70%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40.9%, Idaho at 43%, and Wyoming at 43.2%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 57.1%. The five countries with biggest 24-hour increases in the number of fully vaccinated people: Taiwan up 4%. Uzbekistan and India 2%. And Australia and New Zealand 1%. Globally, cases were down 8% and deaths were down 9% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending down since October 8. There are now under 18 million active cases around the world, at 17,863,755. The five countries with the most new cases: The United States 80,835. The U.K. 52,009. Russia 36,339. And Turkey 28,465. There have been at least 4,928,934 deaths reported as Covid-related worldwide.

My guest this week is Peter Jenkins [33:40], longtime striper angler and owner of the Saltwater Edge Fly Shop, outside of newport, Rhode Island. Peter talks about the seven different seasons of striper fishing on the coast, and also about the plight of the striper populations in the Atlantic. It's still an awesome and productive fishery, however we know it could be even better with proper conservation measures. In the Fly Box this week, we have some thought-provoking questions and comments, including: A comment on the lack of small fly shops these days and the bewildering variety of equipment Do I want a Spey rod for shoreline fishing and smaller steelhead rivers? Do you think that trying different fly sizes is something that applies universally Should tiers have more than one fly-tying vise? Since most people fish nymphs these days and they catch more fish than other methods, should we be limiting the number of fish we catch and release> Is there ever a time when you should go a size or two larger on a fly? What feathers should I save from grouse, pheasants, and wild turkey? I lost two large rainbows because I had trouble handling my slack line. What can I do to prevent this?

Now, for our feature story: U.S. senators from Rhode Island and Maine are asking the Biden administration to quickly send money to states for a program that helps people pay their heating bills. U.S. Sens. Jack Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, and Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, said Friday they're leading a coalition of 36 senators in urging the federal government to release funds for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program swiftly, at the highest level possible. Reed and Collins said they're making the request now because winter is approaching and energy costs are projected to precipitously increase. The federal funding is a crucial lifeline that helps low-income households and seniors on fixed incomes, they added. About 5.3 million households nationwide received assistance through the program last year. Collins said: “This funding will help ensure that low-income families and seniors do not have to make the impossible choice between paying for heat and paying for food or medicine, especially with the sharp increase in energy prices this year,”. Last year, Maine was awarded more than $40 million to help nearly 33,000 households. Rhode Island received $24 million, plus a $30.8 million one-time boost for the program through the American Rescue Plan, and helped more than 26,000 households last year.

Born in New London, CT, Bob graduated from Stonington schools and started employment at Electric Boat, training as a welder. In May of 1944 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and went on to serve in WWII as a Carpenter's Mate on a combat ship in the Pacific Theater. When in the third wave on Iwo Jima, his ship took prisoners aboard after landings. Bob was honorably discharged from the Naval Service in June of 1946 after being awarded several medals and a letter of commendation. Upon returning to civilian life, Bob met the love of his life, Helen and they wed at St. Michael's Church in Pawcatuck. Together they had six children. After seven years as a self-employed welder, Bob returned to work at Electric Boat and continued there until he retired as a Ship Superintendent in 1983. He then focused on helping people by doing odd jobs, all while keeping up with his golf game. Bob and Helen loved to travel and one of their favorite vacation spots was Marco Island, FL. They loved it there so much that in 1984 they bought a condo and became "snowbirds". In 2009, they became full-time Marco Island residents and in 2017, Bob and Helen moved to Naples, FL. Besides his wife and children, Bob is survived by his sister, grandsons, granddaughters, great-granddaughters. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 21st, 2021. Sometimes it just doesn't pay to be the leader of a country during a global pandemic. A leaked document suggests a Brazilian congressional panel is ready to recommend mass homicide charges be brought against President Bolsonaro over how he handled the virus. The charge is he deliberately allowed it to spread in hopes of achieving herd immunity. As we reported yesterday, millions of Russians are under strict new restrictions. In Moscow, all unvaccinated residents over 60, and unvaccinated people with chronic diseases have to lock down at home for four months. Non-working days have also been declared from October 30 to November 7 across Russia. The U.S. released its plan to vaccinate children 5 to 11. They'll be able to get it at their pediatrician's office, a local pharmacy, or maybe even their school. Authorization to use Pfizer in kids is expected in a few weeks and those will be low dose shots. Moderna won't give up how to make its vaccine, so the World Health Organization has hired an African startup to hack the formula. Or at least get as close to it as they can. Moderna's patent is public but the way it's written doesn't disclose everything. Moderna has said several times they won't enforce their intellectual property during the pandemic, so it's safe for the startup to move ahead without much fear of getting sued. They don't have a choice in whether or not to get vaccinated, they haven't organized protests against it, and so far, none of them have even said anything about it. 80 animals at the Cincinnati Zoo got two doses of vaccine designed for veterinary use. Handlers worked for weeks to get the animals comfortable with everything they'd see and feel when they got the injections. In the United States cases were down 22%, deaths are down 14%, and hospitalizations are down 19% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,540,596 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: New Hampshire and Michigan 25%, Minnesota 15%, Colorado 14%, and Montana 9%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Goshen, WY. Stark, ND. Matanuska-Susitna Borough, AK. Lake, MT. Bethel Census Area, AK. Hale, AL. Hill, MT. Inyo, CA. Arenac, MI. And Orleans, VT. There have been at least 729,434 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont unchanged at 70.6%, and Connecticut and Rhode Island at 70%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40.9%, Idaho at 43%, and Wyoming at 43.2%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 57.1%. The top five countries with a 24-hour increase in the number of fully vaccinated people: Oceana up 3%. Taiwan, South Korea, and Bangladesh 2%. And Australia 1%. Globally, cases were down 9% and deaths were down 11% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending down since August 26. There are 17,805,130 active cases around the world. The five countries with the most new cases: The United States 71,809. The U.K. 43,540. Russia 33,740. Turkey 30,862. And Romania 18,863.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 20th, 2021. Cases are going down worldwide, but in many countries, you certainly wouldn't know it. For instance, some scientists are calling on the U.K. government to reimpose social restrictions and speed boosters as infection rates, which are Europe's highest, keep going up. Russia had another daily record of deaths, and the country might declare a nonworking week. Romania hit daily records for infections and deaths…vaccine uptake is very low there. Latvia is going into a nearly monthlong lockdown that includes a curfew, with a vaccination rate that's among the lowest in the EU. The Czechs just had the highest daily tally since late April. Poland is reporting an increase of almost 85% in new cases compared to the previous week. And New Zealand counted its most new cases of the pandemic Tuesday even as Auckland is in a two-month lockdown. U.S. federal regulators are expected to authorize mixing and matching booster doses this week. The idea is to provide more flexibility and get more boosters into more arms. The FDA is expected to say using the same brand is preferable, especially for Pfizer and Moderna, but studies have found an extra dose of any type revs up antibody levels. Yes, fully vaccinated people can still transmit the virus, but how likely is it that will happen? A new study shows not very likely. Experts at the University of Colorado School of Medicine examined several studies on breakthrough cases and concluded the CDC guidance on transmission from those cases may have been overstated. The study saw definitive proof the infected vaccinated pass along much less virus than the unvaccinated. This could affect guidance on mask requirements in the future. News you don't want to hear, a newly detected variant that's an offshoot of Delta appears to be rising in England. You may start hearing about AY.4.2. Now, experts at the University of Cambridge say the two mutations involved should not be of concern because they don't have that large of an effect on the virus. But it could be 10-15% more transmissible than the original Delta. In the United States cases were down 20%, deaths are down 11%, and hospitalizations are down 19% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,584,770 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 26%, Minnesota 20%, New Hampshire 15%, Colorado 14%, and Montana 10%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Lake, MT. Goshen, WY. Stark, ND. Hill, MT. Waynesboro, VA. Lewis and Clark, MT. Arenac, MI.

Perhaps no prediction has been as consistently made—and as consistently wrong—as the imminent death of amphibious operations. Whatever the changes in warfare and technology, the necessity of amphibious force projection endures, long outliving those who claim its time has passed. Changes in how amphibious operations are conducted, however, are just as consistent. This essential contributed volume arrives at a vital point of transition.  The essays in On Contested Shores: The Evolving Role of Amphibious Operations in the History of Warfare (Marine Corps UP, 2020) highlight both changes and continuities, examining historical amphibious operations as early as the sixteenth century to the near future, describing both lesser-known cases and featuring more nuanced views of famous campaigns, such as Gallipoli and Normandy. With the release of the U.S. Marine Corps' Force Design 2030, this volume gives historians, theorists, and practitioners an opportunity to ground the coming changes in the historical context as they seek to find out what it takes to win on contested shores. Timothy Heck is an artillery officer by trade. A graduate of several military staff schools, he recently finished his MA in the Department of War Studies at King's College, London. His work currently focuses on the Red Army during and after the Second World War. B.A. Friedman is a military analyst and an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.

A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that The Watch Hill Lighthouse has served as a nautical beacon for ships since 1745? The original structure was destroyed in a 1781 storm, and plans were discussed to build a new lighthouse to mark the eastern entrance to Fishers Island Sound and to warn mariners of a dangerous reef southwest of Watch Hill. President Thomas Jefferson signed an act to build the lighthouse in 1806, and construction was completed in 1807.  Now for our feature story: A Colorado woman who is applying to take ownership of the Watch Hill Lighthouse wants to use the historic landmark as a symbol to focus attention on poverty and ways to help women become financially stable and astute. Kate Lacroix, who lives in the Boulder area would establish residency here if she is selected to take ownership of the lighthouse. She's applied to the National Park Service on behalf of STOCKED, the nonprofit pantry-building service she founded that teaches women how to save money on their grocery bills and invest the savings. The U.S. General Services Administration announced in May that entities interested in taking ownership of the lighthouse should apply by Thursday. Applications from federal agencies, state and local agencies, nonprofit corporations, educational agencies or community development organizations for educational, park, recreational, cultural or historic preservation purposes will be considered. The Watch Hill Lighthouse Keepers Association, a Westerly-based organization, which has leased the property and acted as its steward since 1986, has also applied. The total number of applicants was unclear late last week. Lacroix has visited the lighthouse twice this year and hired a local structural engineer to gain insight into its condition. Aware that the National Park Services favors applicants with strong community partnerships, she has talked with the owners of local hotels as well as with town and business officials. She plans to continue making the lighthouse and the property accessible and will change admission to generate funds for maintenance and programming. Lacroix said she plans a lending library and has talked with the Gender Studies Department at Brown University about developing an education series focusing on female lighthouse-keepers. She also hopes to develop a storm tools exhibit in the lighthouse museum with the state Coastal Resources Management Council.  Use of the facility for weddings and other ceremonies for a fee is also on the horizon should Lacroix take ownership. Any profits that are realized would be used by STOCKED to offer grants for organizations and causes in Rhode Island that align with its mission. — For more about the coronavirus pandemic, the recovery, and the latest on all things in and around Westerly, head over to westerlysun.com.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 19th, 2021. 84-year-old Colin Powell, the retired four-star general who became the country's first Black secretary of state and chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, died from complications of Covid-19. He was fully vaccinated. Powell had a cancer of a type of white blood cell. France's High Authority for Health decided to no longer allow the Moderna vaccine to be injected as a booster dose against Covid-19. Now only Pfizer is used for boosters in those that are eligible. Sweden and Finland had already suspended use of Moderna for those under 30 due to potential heart risks. And Denmark and Norway formally advised against it for people under 18. Iceland suspended it as a booster dose altogether. Japan is suddenly a big coronavirus success story. And if you ask them what they did, they'll tell you “we have no idea.” Daily cases have plummeted, bars are packed, trains are crowded, and Japan never came anywhere near a lockdown. Some speculate it's because of a late but fast vaccination campaign, bad weather in August that kept people home, or widespread masking, which was already embraced in that country even pre-pandemic. Thousands of California parents were expected to keep their kids home from school to protest a vaccine mandate. Some teachers were also planning on not showing up to classrooms. Nearly 40% of state employees remain unvaccinated. The question is, if we're going to get booster shots, why weren't the vaccine formulas revised to more closely target the Delta variant that's been the biggest problem? The answer: The FDA okayed Pfizer boosters of the original recipe last month because studies showed it works good enough against Delta and the doses could roll out immediately without manufacturing problems. In the United States cases were down 22%, deaths are down 19%, and hospitalizations are down 18% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,675,650 active cases in the United States.

In this episode Host, Susan Guthrie, chats with two of the co-founders of Vesta Divorce, Deanna Coyle and Samantha Vona, about the importance of finding and building the correct team of professionals to support you through your divorce One of the most common memories people share about their divorce is just how very ALONE they felt as they went through the process.  Indeed, the process can be very isolating and that feeling alone will make what is already difficult even harder to get through.  Both Deanna Coyle and Samantha Vona have experienced that sense of loneliness that divorce can bring in their own lives and it led them to join forces to create Vesta Divorce, an essential resource and place to find your trusted team. They have built a better way to navigate the divorce process by providing direct access to what you need through complimentary events and concierge services, vetted, expert professionals, and a compassionate community of support.  Come and listen in and we promise, you won't feel alone anymore!

As a mother who has gone through a long and financially and emotionally draining divorce, Deanna understands how isolating and frustrating the divorce process can be. Her challenging divorce led her to create divorce programs that educate, empower, and guide people in navigating the crucial decisions and considerations during and after divorce. In 2015, Deanna left her successful financial planning business to work exclusively on creating Vesta.  Deanna helps Vesta's clients connect with experienced and caring professionals in the areas of divorce and self-care that best suit their needs. She is dedicated to transforming the divorce process by helping people avoid courtroom battles and the resulting anger, resentment, and hurt that affect all involved. She is focused on the emotional, financial, and physical health and well-being of both parents and children.  Samantha Vona is a Co-Founder of Vesta. As a child of divorce at the age of three, Samantha watched not only her parents but many other family members get divorced over her lifetime. Samantha is passionate about helping families make informed decisions instead of emotionally driven decisions. She enjoys speaking with parents about her experience, and how she turned part of her identity into a focus to help others during what can be a difficult life transition.  With a background in finance and trained as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), she is especially passionate about making sure people understand their financial options in divorce and beyond. Samantha understands the value of a team approach to help clients make decisions that positively impact themselves and their families.   VESTA: A NEW VISION FOR DIVORCE At Vesta, we have built a better way for people to navigate the divorce process by providing consolidated access to expert guidance, professional counseling (emotional, legal, financial), and a community of support.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 18th, 2021. The FDA's advisory panel voted unanimously to recommend Moderna booster shots for emergency use authorization. That moves millions in the U.S. closer to booster eligibility. The decision now goes to the FDA, which should make a final ruling in a few days. Moderna's boosters are expected to be a half dose. Almost 1,000 people descended on Times Square Saturday to protest the vaccine and vaccine mandates. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., board chair of Children's Health Defense, was a main speaker and said, “The vaccine is not safe and effective. We have no business giving this to little children. It is unethical, it is medical malpractice.” YouTube recently censored and banned the Children Health Defense's channel. Melbourne has spent more time locked down than any city in the world. But that's about to change. It will lift stay-at-home orders this week. It's a city of 5 million people, but there have been six lockdowns totaling nearly nine months since March 2020. Cases are still rising there but the double-vaccination rate will hit 70% this week. Russia is still struggling. A record-high number of cases in 24 hours since the start of the pandemic, and 997 deaths. That's just five fewer than the daily record-high of 1,002 reported just the day before. Authorities blame a slow vaccination campaign. New guidance from the CDC on how you should celebrate the upcoming holidays and stay safe from COVID. It's not really anything new. Get vaccinated, the unvaccinated should wear masks all the time, the vaccinated should wear masks in public indoor settings, gather outdoors if possible, protect kids 11 years old and younger who can't get the vaccine yet, and avoid travel if you aren't fully vaccinated. In the United States cases were down 23%, deaths are down 17%, and hospitalizations are down 18% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,677,817 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 28%, Minnesota 21%. Montana 15%, and Pennsylvania and Colorado 9%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Goshen, WY. Lake, MT. Stark, ND. Bethel Census Area, AK. Matanuska-Susitna Borough, AK. Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK. Nome Census Area, AK. Todd, MN. Hill, MT. And Wadena, MN. There have been at least 724,177 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 70.4%, Connecticut at 69.7%, and Rhode Island at 69.6%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40.8%, Idaho at 42.6%, and Wyoming unchanged at 42.7%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 56.7%. There were only four countries with a 24-hour increase in the number of fully vaccinated people: Russia up 3%. And Indonesia, Australia, and Montenegro 1%. Globally, cases were down 13% and deaths were down 17% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending down since August 26. There are 17,865,612 active cases around the world. The five countries with the most new cases: The U.K. 43,275. The United States 33,910. Russia 33,208. Turkey 28,537. And Romania 15,239.

We had the pleasure of interviewing EMELINE over Zoom video! Up-and-coming singer/songwriter EMELINE shares her magnetic new single “this is how i learn to say no” — a strong-minded and cathartic pop song about the power in setting boundaries and speaking your truth. “this is how i learn to say no” follows the 22-year-old artist's breakout single “flowers & sex” (an equally candid track that amassed over 10 million global streams in just eight weeks). Go HERE to download/stream “this is how i learn to say no” now.Originally from Rhode Island and now based in Los Angeles, EMELINE has a tremendous vocal range that's in full force on “this is how i learn to say no.” With its woozy guitar tones and darkly charged beats, the track also showcases EMELINE's immense talent as a lyricist, striking a stunning balance between raw vulnerability and unapologetic self-possession (e.g., “People talk shit, say they're gonna get better/I hold my breath, I can't hold it forever”). Written about her last relationship failing as she learned to set boundaries, “this is how i learn to say no” also speaks to the experience of watching her parents' 15+ year marriage fall apart. Proving the incredible impact of her songwriting and vocal work, EMELINE recently had a viral moment on TikTok after posting a clip of her father's deeply emotional reaction to hearing “this is how i learn to say no” for the first time.“Setting up boundaries in order to show up for myself is a necessity for me, says EMELINE. “Once I realized that, I told my ex I didn't deserve to be hurt in the ways that he hurt me, and then I went straight to the studio and wrote “this is how i learn to say no”. A few days later I uploaded the song to TikTok and experienced an outpouring of encouragement and understanding from people who felt seen in the lyrics and were empowered to set boundaries and heal in their own lives. I believe that it is my mission in life to be a healer, and music is the channel I use to do that.”A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar and piano, EMELINE first broke through with the premiere of “flowers & sex” — an irresistibly bold anthem that hit #4 on Spotify's U.S. Viral 50 chart. Along with landing on nearly 30 Spotify editorial playlists, the track earned critical praise from outlets like Paper (who noted that the “blunt pop anthem…arrives at a time when people are craving a little self-love and a lot of sexual pleasure after a year of endless isolation”) and Earmilk (who hailed the song as“seductive, confident and perfect in synergy” while praising EMELINE as “transformative”). EMELINE first teased “flowers & sex” with an ecstatic clip on TikTok that's now surpassed a staggering 18 million views combined, while the track has amassed over 10 million global streams since it's release in June.In all of her music, EMELINE moves forward with her mission of uplifting and supporting women everywhere. Naming the gritty honesty of artists like Alanis Morissette among her main inspirations, she previously made waves with a captivating performance at the the first-ever Boston Women's March, where she debuted her empowering single “Hush” to a crowd of 175,000.ABOUT EMELINEBorn in Rhode Island and based in Los Angeles, EMELINE is an emerging artist with a boldly original songwriting voice. Her effortless vocal tone, biting lyrics, and affinity for eccentric production converge in such fiercely honest tracks as “flowers & sex” — a June 2021 release that amassed over 10 million global streams in just eight weeks, in addition to hitting #4 on Spotify's U.S. Viral 50 chart, landing on nearly 30 Spotify editorial playlists, and surpassing 18 million views on TikTok.

She ran just to run with a new boyfriend. Like three miles. A couple of months later she walked on to CU's cross country team and has been running ever since. And just recently, she was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Wow. She never played sports growing up, never ran, never did anything but work and go to school. In this video interview, Deb expresses a surprised happiness after being selected for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. But she also shares something vulnerable; how running in college was the first time she ever experienced feeling truly happy.  Whats not really discussed, is the rocky and almost impossible path she took to get here. If you knew Deb in high school you probably would never have foreseen her making the Colorado Running H.O.A.  But like 99% of her classmates, I had no idea how hard her life was until we reconvened about this honor almost 40 years later. My high school experience differed greatly from Deb's even though we both went to Wheat Ridge and graduated in 1983. I played sports, didn't work, had a car, stayed busy with practices and homework and hanging out with friends. Admittedly, I led the “Leave it Beaver” lifestyle (yes I'm dating myself), like a good chunk of my fellow “Farmers” (our mascot). Deb, living just a few miles away lived in poverty. Her mom forged her birth certificate when she was 13 so she could work. Her bed was an old army cot. They had no refrigerator and the house was in disrepair. Her parents didn't want her to go to college but rather help with the other kids. There was no modeling of “success” or “ambition” in her home. Yet she excelled at school and knew she had to figure out a way to go to college. She admittedly didn't understand true happiness and felt lonely. Her friend and fellow classmate, Chris Tomlinson, one of the few who knew of Deb's tough childhood said, “she was very smart, but seemed anxious and isolated. It seemed touch and go for her.”   Wendy Koenig A middle distance runner, Wendy Koenig competed seven times for the United States in international dual meets. She was a three-time AIAW Champion, in 1975 in the 880 yards, and in 1976 at both 800 and 1,500 metres. Koenig also won three AAU titles, outdoors in the 1973 880 and in 1976 in the 1,500, and indoors in the 1979 800. On 24 March 1973, she set one of the very early world records for the 400 hurdles with 59.08, the first woman to run the event under one minute. Koenig ran for Colorado State University, and competed at the 1972 Olympics as Wendy Koenig and the 1976 Olympics as Wendy Knudson. Personal Bests: 440y – 54.60 (1975); 800 – 1:59.91 (1976); 1500 – 4:21.80 (1976); Mile – 4:47.7i (1976); 3000 – 9:49.0 (1976); 2 Miles – 10:34.0 (1976); 100H – 14.8 (1971); 400H – 59.08 (1973); HJ – 5-5 [1.65] (1974); LJ – 19-10¾i [6.06] (1979); Pen - 4167 (1971).     Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau. The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins.  Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins. The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel. Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away. The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision. The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.” Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.” The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.   Upcoming Guests Matt Bach from TriDot Jared Fisher Escape Adventures   Video Of The Week Deb Conley--Talks about her amazing journey landing her in the Colorado Running Hall of Fame   I'm doing IRONMAN CALIFORNIA - Justin Metzler   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Hear from a Rhode Island congressman about how the federal government is responding to COVID-19. The pandemic moved quickly and impacted every part of people's lives. How did the State's congressional delegation balance the importance of thorough public health measures and the need to maintain a healthy economy? How quickly did federal support get to states, municipalities, and individuals?  Our guest this week is Congressman David Cicilline. Congressman Cicilline is in his sixth term representing the first congressional district of Rhode Island in the US House of Representatives. He chairs the House Antitrust Subcommittee and the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus, and is Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.  Co-hosts Dr. Jim McDonald and Dr. Philip Chan ask the Congressman about the impact COVID-19 has had on the economy, his opinion on the nationwide vaccine rollout, and about the ongoing battle against public health misinformation. Cicilline also talks about the programs that were established to support small businesses, unemployed individuals, and families in need throughout the pandemic.  “COVID-19 revealed what has existed for a long time in this country in terms of housing inequality, health care inequities, economic inequality,” Cicilline said. What can the federal government do to address the pandemic's long-lasting impacts and support Americans through recovery? Download this week's episode to hear more.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 15th, 2021. A major study shows infections among school-aged children in England are “high and rising.” That probably ups the intensity of the debate over kids and vaccines. The reproduction rate of those aged 17 and younger was 1.18, meaning on average every 10 infected young people are passing it on to about 12 others. From the gee I wish we'd known this earlier department, two new international studies show the immune protection from two doses of Pfizer drops off after a mere two months. One study found the drop especially true for men, people 65 and older, and those with immunosuppression. The study also found immunity lasts longer from a vaccination if you've already had a natural case of COVID-19. Penn State College of Medicine researchers found more than half of the 236 million people diagnosed with COVID-19 worldwide since December 2019 will experience post-COVID symptoms for up to six months after recovering. These include tiredness, difficulty breathing, chest pain, sore joints and loss of taste or smell. The research team said healthcare officials should get ready for all those survivors who'll need care for psychological and physical conditions. How do airline passengers feel about vaccine mandates to fly? Well, it's America, so the answer is, it's split. That's according to the travel website Skift's poll. 45% definitely want a mandate, 23% don't care either way, and 33% are against it. The older the person, the more likely they are to be in favor of requiring vaccinations to fly. With all the stories of overworked nurses with PTSD and of nurses who are getting fired or quitting because of vaccine mandates, you'd think it wouldn't be a very alluring occupation right now. But applications to nursing schools are actually rising. Up 5.6% in 2020 according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, and number are also trending up in 2021. The reasons; unprecedented career opportunities, the challenge, and many people have been inspired by healthcare workers over the past couple of years. In the United States cases were down 22%, deaths are down 5%, and hospitalizations are down 21% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,702,828 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 26%, Minnesota 21%. North Dakota 16%, Montana 13%, and Pennsylvania 11%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Bethel Census Area, AK. Stark, ND. Goshen, WY. Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK. Lewis, KY. Lake, MT. Nome Census Area, AK. Rio Grande, CO. Matanuska-Susitna Borough, AK. And Whitley, KY. There have been at least 720,482 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont unchanged at 70.3%, Connecticut unchanged at 69.6%, and Rhode Island at 69.5%.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 14th, 2021. After a 19-month freeze, the United States will open its land borders with Canada and Mexico to non-essential travel. Fully vaccinated foreign nationals can enter the U.S. for whatever reason starting early November. Travelers will be asked about their vaccination status as part of the standard Customs and Border Protection admissions process, and no testing will be required to enter by land or sea. Despite full steam ahead by the U.S. administration and other countries, the Director General of the World Health Organization called booster shots while initial inoculations lag in some countries is "immoral, unfair, and unjust.” He went on to say, "To start boosters is really the worst we can do as a global community." A federal judge ruled the state of New York can't impose a vaccine mandate on healthcare workers and not allow their employers to consider religious exemption requests. The judge said the vaccination requirement conflicted with the workers' federally protected right to seek religious accommodations from their employers. The Governor vowed to fight the decision. At least 24 states have imposed vaccine requirements on workers, usually in healthcare. Boeing told employees they have to be vaccinated and if they don't, they might get fired. Deadline is December 8 and the company said compliance is a condition of employment. This affects about 125,000 U.S.-based employees. The International Association of Machinists union said it's their responsibility to defend and advocate for members, but the fact is the membership is polarized on the issue. So can you get a booster from a different vaccine than your original doses? A new NIH study found yes, it's safe and effective. However, Moderna and Pfizer were found to spark a stronger immune system response than Johnson & Johnson. The study found those that got J&J got stronger antibody levels after getting a Moderna or Pfizer booster, compared to another J&J shot. In the United States cases were down 21%, deaths are down 4%, and hospitalizations are down 20% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,695,293 active cases in the United States.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 13th, 2021. The British government didn't get a very good report card from Parliament on how it handled COVID. A critical report said the country waited too long to impose a lockdown in the early days, and that missed a chance to contain the disease and led to thousands of unnecessary deaths. The delay attributed to a dangerous level of “groupthink” that caused dismissal of more aggressive strategies. The committees did praise the government's early focus on vaccines and vaccine development. A French study of 22.6 million people over 50 found vaccination reduces the risk of dying or being hospitalized by 90%. It also found vaccines appear to protect against the worst effects of Delta. The study's authors said, “This means those vaccinated are nine times less at risk of being hospitalized or dying from Covid than those unvaccinated.” Explosive accusations against Prevent Senior, which operates 10 hospitals in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Whistleblowing doctors testified the hospitals enlisted participants to test unproven drugs without proper consent and forced doctors to prescribe unproven drugs touted by Brazil's President. Some senators say it also looks like the system falsified death certificates to omit COVID as cause of death. The FDA declined to take a stand on whether it should back booster shots of Moderna's vaccine, mostly because data shows two doses are still enough to protect against severe disease and death in the U.S. They also didn't take a stand on Pfizer's booster shots last month and rejected Pfizer's original plan to distribute boosters to everyone 16 and older. A national poll by NPR find the pandemic put Americans increasingly behind the economic 8-ball. More are experiencing serious financial problems, rent's overdue, evictions are looming, two-thirds of parents say their kids fell behind in school, and one in five households say someone in the home couldn't get medical care for a serious condition. All this while billions of dollars in government relief money have gone out. 19% of U.S. households report losing all their savings during the pandemic and have no savings to fall back on. Add to that, half of households report at least one person in the home has had serious problems with depression, anxiety, stress or sleep in recent months. In the United States cases were down 24%, deaths are down 10%, and hospitalizations are down 20% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13.

Kane was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and currently still makes his home in the Ocean State. Nicknamed "The Pitbull of comedy" in the 1980s during his time as a stand-up comedian, Kane is known for his passionate, sometimes confrontational style of talk radio, urging people to stand up for what they believe in and to take action in the face of injustice. One of Kane's oft-spoken phrases is the well known quote, often attributed to Irish philosopherEdmund Burke, "All that is necessary for evil to exist is for good people to do nothing." In addition to his strong viewpoints about current local and national issues, his radio show, dubbed "Kane and Company", also features Kane's self-deprecating style of humor liberally peppered throughout. Conflict between Kane and his callers is commonplace, with some of the more vociferous people attaining the level of "Prisoner." This is a title Kane reserves for the most antagonistic callers who consistently claim to hate his show, but who feel compelled to keep listening and/or calling back to argue. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/cindy-gilman/support
