Take Me Home, Country Roads - The Petersens (LIVE) [Extra Quality]
Mary O'Grady: I think that you have to be careful with the polls. I've also seen polls that show a majority of Canadians, well above 70%, believe that the government has gone too far in mass mandates, vaccine mandates, travel restrictions, and the like. So while I would say a majority of Canadians do not approve of roadblock, physical confrontation, disturbing the peace and so forth, there is a lot of sympathy in the general point that the government has reached too far, people are tired of all of these extraordinary measures that the government says it has the power to impose because there's a pandemic, when the pandemic seems to have passed, it's endemic, and we're going to have to learn to live with it. I would also add that this idea that they are disruptive and disrespectful to the locals and so forth, that I think we should take with a grain of salt.I mean, the idea that there was a guy there with a swastika flag and someone with a Confederate flag, these are not the people who went to oppose these restrictions. Eventually, and especially with respect to the international bridge, the car parts industry, the supply chain disruption and so forth, yes, that will hurt the cause. But even if the truckers end up getting towed off the bridge and out of Ottawa, I think they've made their point and I think that there is a broader point here, which is that Canada, even more than the United States at this point, is run by an administrative state, by experts who tell people what to do, and that the recourse that Canadians ought to have through the courts in similar ways that Americans go to their courts are not really vibrant right now.They don't really deliver of our satisfaction. The idea of individual liberty is very much under the gun in Canada. I mean, I really think that what you're seeing here is a frustration with a court system, with a judiciary, that interprets the law in the interest of social justice and collectivism more in the interest of individual rights. And while Canada tends to be a country that's more left than the United States, there's a lot of Canadians that don't want to live under that system. And I think that's partly what we're seeing play out here with this Trucker Movement.

"Deep Sea Diver" 05:19 lyrics buy track And I wonder why I don'tJust leave, leave myself aloneAs I wander to and froSearching, searching for the source of my hurtingIn the Deep Beneath the BlueUp in their glass bottom boats, floatingAs I watch from belowAs they rock and as they rollThey're so noisyBut all I hear is the hum and the drum and NothingAnd it's Something that I've been searching forNot paramours going overboardThey're so proud but they would drown Beneath the BlueAnd now I'm a Deep Sea Diver, that's for certainIt takes me longer to get done hurtingThe heart that's larger takes longer to heal.As I walk along the floorThrough the shipwrecks from stormsForgotten or ignoredI remember treasures,Old bottles full of letters,And skeletons still clutching their swordsOh, the memories in The Deep Beneath the BlueAll the bottles full of lettersThat'd be better offNever written at allThe bottles rain downThey catch the light just rightAnd they look like stars falling through the night And I'm remindedI once believedBelieved in our loveOur love was a dreamA dream I'll wake up fromAnother wish has come to live Beneath the BlueAnd now I'm a Deep Sea Diver, that's for certainIt takes me longer to get done hurtingThe heart that's larger takes longer to heal. 5. "Naturally" 03:30 lyrics buy track I adore youBaby, can't you seeYet I'll ignore youShould we fall short of fantasyIt ain't easy but that's how it goesI am not the man I hoped I would beDo I owe an apology to youFor doing what comes Naturally?Maybe, baby, that is just how love goes?It's not supposed to be an easy road.It's an answer that I can't question,And a lesson that's ongoing.Do me a favor:Hear my story, then don't worry.Beautiful lady- you gotta be suitably crazy to be with me. It ain't easy but that's how it goesI am not the man I hoped I would beDo I owe an apology to youFor doing what comes Naturally? about This album is dedicated to the soul of the small hours. I'm grateful to have had the witching hours as a friend whose door is always open. I've had the privilege to work with Colin "Hollywood" J Nelson for a good many years, and over that time we'd bandied about the idea of recordings that sound like the space and time that happens at 3AM (and often we were having those discussions at 3AM). Like many good ideas, they can only be revisited in the time of happenstance in which they're conceived, so the attempt of clean living dictated that the conversation was protracted over a longer time than most. Speaking of happenstance, these renditions wouldn't have been possible if my travel pouch hadn't been stolen out of a bus on the way between Hampi and Hosapete across India. That travel pouch had my guitar picks inside, and it was hanging right above my snoozing face in the bus bunk that I was laying in. Without the guitar picks, I was then forced to start learning my "clawed" finger-picking style on the travel guitar I'd brought along the journey with me. If Necessity is the Mother of Invention, then she's a single mom and works waaay too hard. These recordings weren't initially intended for public consumption, either. I regarded them as "Old Man Ruff's Private Vintage" that I kept in the cellar, and would every once in a while pay a visit, take a nip from, and leave again. The subject matter and starkness of the recordings were deemed too raw for my ears of years ago, but now I'm grateful to them for having a time capsule quality and for being foundational of my writing style moving forward. Thanks to all the active listeners that've contributed insights and encouragement over the years. They spurred this release farther than I would've on my own and they're the best friends a song can have:Sandy J BuchnerLiam FitzgeraldPatrick GibbsAmy Jo-Jo-Lina KennedyCatlain Kinsey"Hollywood" NelsonRicky Gene PowellSam RussellShadrach ScottAnd to everyone else for their small kindnesses in regards to my songs and general artistic bent- those kindnesses certainly add up.

August 15, 2002 MS. HAYES: Good morning. Hi, I'm Gail Hayes, senior press officer at CDC, and I'd like to welcome the reporters that have joined us today. We've got three speakers. First will be Dr. Catherine Staunton, and that's spelled C-a-t-h-e-r-i-n-e, and her last name, S-t-a-u-n-t-o-n. She's one of CDC's unintentional injury expert. She'll provide brief remarks about the barriers for children walking or biking to school. Then Ms. Jessica Shisler--and that is spelled S-h-i-s-l-e-r--one of CDC's health educators, will talk about school transportation modes in Georgia, and following their presentations we'll take your questions. Then Dr. Lyle Petersen--and that's P-e-t-e-r-s-e-n--one of CDC's infectious disease experts, will provide an update on West Nile virus activity in the United States. Let's get started with Dr. Staunton. DR. STAUNTON: Good afternoon. I'm Dr. Catherine Staunton with the CDC's Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, yet parents in the U.S. report that only about one child in seven starts the day by walking or biking to school. About half of children are transported to school by private vehicle and a third by school bus. Understanding why more parents don't encourage their children to walk and bike to school is important for addressing this public health concern. Until now, there has been no nationwide data addressing this question. Today's MMWR reports on the first nationwide study to help us better understand the concerns that parents have about letting their children walk and bike to school. This study finds the two main reasons that parents don't encourage these healthy behaviors are because of long distances and traffic danger. Parent are justified in their concerns. Other studies have shown the average distance to school is long--two miles. However, even children living within walking and biking distance usually do not walk or bike to school. Among U.S. children living within one mile of school, only one in three trips to school are made by walking or biking. Also, walking and biking can be dangerous forms of transportation. Pedestrian bicycle injuries are a leading cause of death among U.S. children. Our study found when parents were asked what made it difficult for their children to walk and bike to school, they reported the following factors: long distance, 55 percent; traffic danger, 40 percent; weather, 24 percent; danger of crime, 18 percent; school policy, 7 percent; and other reasons, 26 percent. Only 16 percent of parents reported no barriers to walking or biking to school. Among the children with no reported barriers, 64 percent of children did walk and 21 percent of children did bike to and from school at least once a week. Children with no reported barriers were six times more likely to walk or bike to school than children with one or more reported barriers. According to parents, both primary school-aged children and secondary school-aged children were equally likely to walk or bike to school. However, parents are more concerned about the risk of traffic and crime danger in the younger children. In summary, most children face substantial barriers to walking or biking to school. However, when these barriers are not present, the majority of children do walk or bike to school. CDC approaches this public health concern by recommending that community leaders and parents work together to address these barriers. For example, walking and biking are safer if motor vehicle speed and traffic decreases and if drivers' visibility of pedestrians increases. Programs that encourage adult supervision, such as the walking school bus, also improve safety. Another suggestion is to consider building new schools closer to homes to decrease distances. These multi-pronged efforts provide healthy transportation alternatives for children and produce neighborhoods that ensure safer walking and biking for all ages. Thank you. MS. HAYES: I'd like to turn it over now to Ms. Shisler to talk about her findings. MS. SHISLER: Hello. I'm Jessica Shisler, a health education specialist in the Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity at the CDC. Georgia is the first state to collect statewide data on the number of children who walk to school. These data were collected by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Division of Public Health, by adding two questions on modes of transportation to school to the Georgia (?) survey that was conducted May to August of 2000. This study found that only 4.2 percent of Georgia's school-aged children walked to school on majority days of the week. Of those who live within one mile of school, fewer than one in five children walk to school. Older children are more likely to walk than younger children, and non-Hispanic black children are more likely to walk than other races and ethnic groups. Why is walking and bicycling to school important? Well, studies show that even moderate physical activity, including walking, at least 30 minutes on all or most days of the week offers substantial health benefits. At a time when sedentary activities, such as watching TV, playing video games, and using a computer, compete for children's free time, we need ways to build physical activity into children's daily routine. Walking and bicycling to school offer an ideal opportunity for children to fulfill part of the recommended daily physical activity. National statistics show that trips made by walking have steadily decreased while trips made by automobile have increased. Interestingly, over this same time period, levels of obesity and overweight among children and adults have climbed. Over the past 30 years, the percent of overweight children has more than doubled. In Georgia, obesity in adults has more than doubled over just the last decade, not surprisingly, since Georgia ranks 39th of all states in levels of physical activity. Walking to school offers an opportunity for children to get daily physical activity. The CDC supports walking to school through the Kids Walk to School Program, developed in response to the low rates of walking to school, inadequate levels of physical activity in children, and to the alarming increase of overweight children in the U.S. Walk-to-school programs encourage community members to work together to identify ways to overcome barriers to walking and biking to school and establish safe routes for children to walk and bike to school in groups accompanied by adults. By adding questions to existing surveys, other states can inexpensively and reasonably collect some more data. In the fall of 2002, Georgia will add additional questions to collect data on barriers to walking and bicycling to school. These data can be used to monitor prevalence of walking and bicycling to school and identify ways to increase opportunities for walking and bicycling to school. Thank you. MS. HAYES: Great. We'd like to open it now for any questions for these two studies. AT&T OPERATOR: And, ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to ask a question, please depress the 1 on your touch-tone phone. You'll hear a tone indicating you've been placed in queue and may remove yourself from the queue at any time by depressing the pound key. If you are using a speakerphone, please pick up your handset before you press the 1. And our first question is from the line of Christin Wyatt with the Associated Press. Please go ahead. QUESTION: Yes, ma'am. You all said this was the first study of the barriers to children walking. Was there an earlier study just of how many children do walk or cycle to school? And can you tell me anything about a decrease in the numbers of children who walk or cycle to school? DR. STAUNTON: This is Dr. Staunton, and I'll address that question. There is a nationwide transportation survey, the National Personal Transportation Survey, that does ask the number of children that walk and bike to school. And it's that survey that says nationwide 10 percent of children walk to school and 1 percent of children bicycle to school. That survey has shown over--over the past decade?--decade or a little less than a decade that the number of walking trips made by children has decreased by 37 percent. I'm not sure, however, about the percentage walking specifically to school. AT&T OPERATOR: And, Ms. Wyatt, does that conclude your question? QUESTION: I'm sorry. I have--yeah. Sorry. AT&T OPERATOR: Thank you, Ms. Wyatt. And our next question will be from the line of Adam Marcus with Health Scout. Please go ahead. QUESTION: Hi. I was interrupted so I wasn't sure whether this is was answered in the previous question, but the figure in the editorial note for the Georgia study of 31 percent of students walking who live less than a mile from school in the 2010 objectives, where does that come from? MS. SHISLER: This is Jessica Shisler. Again, that data comes from the Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey that Dr. Staunton just mentioned, and the reason--she mentioned 10 percent because that's of all school trips of any distance. And when you look at the number within a one-mile distance from school, it's 31 percent of all school trips are made by walking. QUESTION: So the first here is a first of barriers to--perceived barriers to transportation and not necessarily of the way kids get to school? MS. SHISLER: That is correct. QUESTION: And is--am I still on? MS. HAYES: Yes, you're still on. QUESTION: Is distance really considered to be a barrier? I mean, I think--when my parents were in school, they walked five miles each way in the snow, you know, ever
