You're have a problem guys out not not to go to get a problems the people lie in death row are having problems because appeal school you remember this court's that you get air conditioning yes I did and in the fifth Circuit Court of Appeals I think it was a federal courts no. New you do not. Note this excessive heat and I happen to be in a shed yesterday at the moment ago on the people's answer they. Chad aviation mayor I'd let you know we've got Kate. The point of and I realized how hot it wasn't and the windows were open and I'm just thing again. Why now what it would be like to be in here and constitutions is not about who killed ID kill them the constitution juices cruel and unusual punishment. Is that cruel and unusual punishment also they had people ages stood up. Mentioned in Ferguson open carrying assault well. Semiautomatic rifles right now and open Karrie meaning goes both ways are you OK with that because you can't really say who opens Kerry's opened Kerry's canyon. Maybe if you are criminal or something I don't know if I don't know.

And then I presume when Missouri it's legal because nobody was arrested last night and sod is walking around them very. Volatile situation like this with weapons brazen gas. Com or brandishing if you will brandishing the weapon and a brazen matter. Manner which UV OK with them. Like to talk about 260170. Tucker back in a flash and added a few. 618. And lower but tell scissors of weak cool front coming in. As the lower temperatures of ninety war with the humidity less than it has and so finally get the rap types of things. Me tree bring pets and plants and I think he'll. Mobile OK but the heat is not OK doctor Greg Stewart Jones right now co director of the sports medicine program it's annoying morning dot. Born and I'm well thank you and thank you for taking the time this we're gonna get. Death row in a little bit and cruel and unusual punishment and and Unita constitutional attorney but just about what do Mexican amp. On a body the first don't talk about football practice for a high school kids and we're talking about these yesterday. It seems as though back in the day. They wouldn't give me any water because they thought it would make you tougher we would you know little half a cup of some panic eatery with a salt tablet or something then it times have changed certainly for the better but I wonder back in a day why they award more. Com the effects of and again as bad effects of added more people didn't line up announced that Lehman passed away. Well you know it would probably did have more bad effects we just didn't realize it. I think it and the other thing that happened is. People spend more time outside. And there was. A little bit more acclamation to it now people spend a lot more time in cited in the air conditioning and don't have quite yet. Acclamation. That that they used to have. So in terms of that can somebody who lives. Without air conditioning in a jungle setting and land is making that up where it's. You know hundred degrees. Pretty regularly can you get acclimated to that grievance and a lot more heat or withstand a lot more heat than anybody else. You can and that's part of some of the changes that we've seen that the high school level collegiate level and even the professional level where now. Are you actually go through several days of practiced with limited hand. Even some limited time in order to get used to the heat and as the sole book for. You'd start two days and your first they would be full pads. And you would start running into problems and and now we go on and change some of that. As to the people get a little more used to it. I if he had a couple of minutes we need to take a break for draft and I would like to talk to you about it acclamation as it relates to the prisoners on death row do you eventually. Get uses something no matter what affects long term it can handle on the body can you wait dot. Absolutely appreciated actor Greg Stewart co director of the sports medicine program. At Tulane fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision on what. You don't need air conditioning on death row or they don't needed after lower courts said. They did and what constitutes cruel and unusual punishment because constitution doesn't say. You no matter what kind of horrific crime more cruel and unusual depends on the the nature of the crime all it says there's no cruel and unusual punishment six when he won. Let me hear what you think at 260187. Irregular time for double WL traffic. Six Sony five Tommy Tucker talking about they heat. And Angola's death row given the fact that we are all feeling the heat and not enjoying it very much in the suit. They talk about the heat index or how hot it feels on death throw 195. Degrees on more than one occasion has according to the suit. And on summer to 111 last summer heat indexes above a 126 degrees. Would be for 2012. On 85 days I think it was so Mary Joseph hang on please don't know what you think about the death row inmates and about cruel and unusual punishment. But doctor what would be the long term effects on somebody in when you talked about acclamation. That made the little bitty light bulb go off over my head is when it comes to me is not a big ball would cycled Christmas ball you know. But when you set acclimated I would think if you live and has constantly did do that changes. The dangers rather dissipate or at least the chances for that go way down is the year in it more and more. Do and Margaret comment on now a 195. Heat index and those type to think but he did he used to that and if you go back and look at pre air conditioning. Everyone was surviving in the heated at times you made accommodations for you intrigue you worked with to bring users are those types of things. It's slowed down some and in the heat of the day which your body does acclimate to it it's do height this worked that your body makes. As far as him out of salt your body. Hopes that there are restrict. Fluid loss. The whole. Process that'll fit geologic process that the body changes. As you used is two that he. So you do become. Your body does make some addicts which he used to it or not your body make adaptations to. I let me let me clear this up this has nothing to do with death row or inmates are the seat that was filed. But I would like to talking about wind chill factor in heat index because they have on people. That are they get very angry when you mention either because they say that's not the temporary tour. We talk about a heat index and lamb let's say today it's gonna go up to a 105 and and the temperatures to be 94. Indeed does that carry any weight really yours that is some kinda way of and I don't want to speak editorial here on them trying to keep you out of trouble but it it does that kind in a way a inflate the temperature is an hyperbole or does it really matter the way it feels to me. No I think it does matter because doing when you look at the heat index should take into consideration. Things like humidity part of the way that the body adapts in the and partly it's the body cools is that the sweat. He'd back breaks and has swept on the body actually evaporates it absorbs a lot of heat and and causes. Cooling. Is the humidity is high. That means that the sweat on the body is going to evaporate. Which is why people. In the in the desert say. Have policy would be hydration much quicker because this would evaporate so quickly you don't even realize sometimes which are sweating. Same thing here in New Orleans. You you can't he can't pass and not realize that pitchers where people bringing their church out. Because. There's so much sweat and that's because the high humidity. So if that does happen. An impact it is await to look at the amount of heat that you buy these had to deal with. Again it kind of goes back to. Issues. Looking at plants. If it's if it's 34 degrees in the winds blowing. And the windshield is significantly lower. It's still locker caused planes to freeze that your gonna feel it because the wind and it is all went away. And in the any kind of keep that your body may have stored on Popper in the closed. So both of these factors the wind chill in the heat index duke kind of helped give you an indication of which bodies have to deal. Doctor appreciate your time I really doing disappoint for everybody is stay hydrated and is it true the adage that. By the time you get thirsty it's almost too late. Absolutely you need to stay well ahead of that I think debts. No one of the things that that we're seeing both of the athletes and people just going outside was working in the yard. Stay ahead of it caffeine. And alcohol. Type of drinks are going to do it you need electoral light solutions. Stay away from the energy drinks British prime trying to stay the hydrated. So just try to be careful and monitor detector in the heat index and be Smart. On real quick and has a personal note do you play golf for non. I don't okay it's just you I don't know how people go into it it's just miserably hot out there the sun beaten in Ingraham. Margaret thank you Caribbean weather aside actor Greg Stewart and one thing quick do you view if your job Euro walker. Either get it done evening wore Lleyton in the morning rather late in the evening it goes now. And so I guess their doctor Greg Stewart co director of the sports medicine program at two in hope we get to talk to you again. 630 Mary Joseph in Lafayette little bit late hang on because it wanna hear what you think. Death row prisoners saying that. The temperature your heat index the feels like temperature death row reached a 195 degrees. In the summer of two when he eleven summer when he twelve index was above 126. Degrees on 85 days. And I just mansion and a hat and be in a storage yet at my house on Sunday inning I mean think about it because of windows were open. But how long outlast in there and the constitution just talks about. Cruel and unusual punishment it mentions nothing about. What crime year in prison full time now to other WL first news for the we go to Dave public. I saw me get this straight Hillary Clinton is defending Fox News and Donald Trump is at war witnesses are telling actually Donald Trump on boxer hugging and kissing for a while they all it was buried and Hillary Clinton was defending talks yeah he's jumped on there she jumped on the man mark ladies and gentlemen the end is near. No mr. Thomas predicted David I don't know if you notice spec India. I think was twelve BC when mr. Thomas was alive was. Into obesity he said. The end show com win the he with the romp. Defends the the quietly tale. I'll sound pretty go whether he had me for plotted to remind our Marie Allen he show I don't think it was four BC but that's not non not quite. From I think it's something about being acclimated to the negative techsters does that work outside with no problems with the heat if you are prepared it's funny that the people who work in the AC do the most belly aching. About the warm weather well here colonists warm I hate to see would you call hot yup. And I think what you're what this text is proving is what the doctors that you get acclimated to it which is why. Back in the day football players he said even up to the professional level didn't need to be. As hydrated because they were used to the heat because they. Lot of places didn't have air conditioning and secondly I guess a lot of kids didn't spend their time in the air conditioning playing video games. I don't know I still getting acclimated. I try every year I can't get acclimated with my problem. David says doctor is wrong Molly Shannon is at a medical school and an all. He would know and saying why even said yesterday remember about the doctor you know the doctor says. I take Mary Joseph record he's been on hold along well you know. You missed it yesterday David Blake said. People always say that's with the doctors says and then ignore. The instructions and then when they're being put in the ambulance and those leagues collapse collapse on the death threats here yelling settlement of the doctor nobody was doing. Marion Lafayette talk about prisoners on death row and air conditioning. And 1 morning tell me what you think. I. Sit back not for cruel and unusual punishment nine but I'd be. Oh. No air conditioning given money and maybe I'm not that bad. These people today. And still no air conditioning so why should we. There are great. Do you think you have been. In terms of an Allen Allen to schoolers know air conditioning we had to Wear long. Pants they khakis and a shirt and so forth and in the you know it's like too bad your your papers sickening year for arms but let's just get through this. Knight that that concern. There you'd think you could get used to the heat again and living without air conditioning. I like and I were put them. Ready jaguar opinion poll and this goes is something that. Rand Paul said that in this country. If you work hard enough you get yourself out of poverty is that true or not that's true statement. Oh. I thank you Mary Joseph appreciate your time run in lake on Baghdad WL. Tommy Tucker 647 now a couple of weeks ago investors lost and I could be interesting to talk about it given the heat that we've all been experiencing. Lower court said that inmates on an angle is death row. Deserved air conditioning or at least it was cruel and unusual punishment that was going on now on. Jesse you know what they said in their suit was that the down and use me dad death row the heat index how it feels. Reached a 195 degrees on more than one medication. Above a 126. Degrees on 85 days between may and August. And is and you're seeing the disgusted as to whether or not it's cruel and unusual punishment. Fourth Amendment says excessive bail shall man be required nor excessive fines imposed nor cruel and unusual punishment inflicted. And then a due process clause of the fourteenth amendment. Bars the states from inflicting such punishment for state crimes in most state constitutions also prohibit. The infliction of cruel and unusual punishment Albany or joints right now professor at the only issues schools laud mourning process. While mr. Tucker good morning and good morning new. Thank you tell me about they courts then. How they determine. Generally speaking. Are have determined what is cruel and unusual punishment. Mr. Tucker articulate your not a lawyer not well because because look who decided the Fourth Amendment. In connection with talking about June the eighth amendment it's okay commandments aren't so here's what judge. Brian Jacqui right it is the eighth amendment I misread. Well that's all right I was a lawyer he's going to be here. You are no problems. Go heights a go ahead tell sorry don't. Here's what the situation. Your staff for probably about. For authority. Would you like to talk to power to mr. is your first mentality yet and possible. What what subject he's had bogeyed it and go. And I said well tell him. Then what to do. About it and I prepared myself I read judge Brian Jackson's 102. Page opinion. I assume mr. Tucker you have not. Well let me. It was just too damn hard. And then that's gross sales of angle you recited these temperatures. I think a 120 degrees. Well right what kids abstinence that is. The state of Louisiana cannot inflict cruel and unusual punishment. That would be a place that they gave them. Just act and a three day trial there expert witnesses doctors and people who do something about he and stroke. So what made them very opinion that's very document that was. I was quite there are pleased to read because I don't know protect them and what are writes I would expect this to happen. And he did not order a air conditioning and did not that that's the misconception. And the public that responded to the advocates publication. On the other inmates have now as the fifth circuit to reading here. Rather initial test circuit opinion that that that particular want to play. In this. Welcome back to captain that no such thing. That's struggling just here but it's Jackson this release that misbehavior as the bra. Do well. Prevent conditions that are cruel and unusual that didn't stop that he had to construct the plant. Well that defendants as stated the present at the proposed remediation plan. It included. Some improvement in the air to air conditioned public judges idea. This estate Sidon and then you show. The chief judge approved the plan goes upstairs and now the State's lawyers. Turned their back on the statement on plan and say wait a minute there's this micromanage disgusting power. And they're judging it as you. Who's a conservative. Climate that's certainly I don't mind concern. But what she's that is the does that mean outside of Europe India and he said that the judge Jackson. Decision. Simply requires air conditioning and throughout. The. Well. He didn't mention and this was the states' idea. And so now what does what he prisoners have done. Nobody likes prisoners especially murder. But you do have some due process it's the prisoners and at the pulpit circuit to rehear the entire matter and that was filed. Just yesterday on Monday. Now the department opera do that you might get from talking to you and that's what I had to read. So let's continue the discussion. Okay omelet at the code word coming up that I have to do in nets. Some business we have to take care here at the radio station but we will try to do that 6528. Before seven. Some time now for got a W out traffic. Tommy Tucker six PDA did. A professor they are going to wish me happy birthday and likes him. And I hate to face a man in court I'll tell you what or to be in his class can imagine that I don't think. Especially the air conditioner was broking broken and you'd be you know. And a hundred heated indices of 175 degrees. There's anybody like murderers. Now. I as I thought at some point he was asked me if I ordered the code red. Didn't well now. Did you order the code red. You want me behind is Mike you need me behind his mind. While we podcasts that. Yeah good that be some analysts and.
