Ten minutes after 5 AM it's early edition of WWL first news on this second of September 2015. And I believe it is re now all day yet elegant that we've made it all the way to the middle work but I can't give year. You can give me my chance on now. You know I've told you before that the double trouble guys now from me thome at night here on them read WL ya hiring here they kind of run wild. They've messed up my computers so world. I just had to unplug it and bank investigative respond doses super if there wise agency goes to I never had problems before this before they started this shift. Yeah but now that is if this thing in. Have you got. Two sports guys wild and crazy anchors and to keep me and on the I don't know what do it. My computers. Are apt await the chance to get our chance to. Him assured this habit away. Until later I'll ask him postponed every. The monument controversy back again Perry. I think a lot of people are getting very frustrated would that hold discussions on both sides. Folks who support removal of the monuments can't believe that its deal. Being discussed it is not happening thing well its party done happened it is should be overweight at that. Discussing. And and people who believe they should stay. Just don't know why as a steady drumbeat. That's secretive and so. Get rid of them. That are other other hearings. Another hearing and a dozens on the really no compromise. Between the sides it is. Now I don't think now do you leave them my payment to get rid of the mine and Europe you know the mayor's proposed putting them in a museum. Where people go to see them and learn history behind. But it doesn't want them. Where they bar. Oh. I don't know you're right I don't think there is an knowledge is seems they're just very firm on both sides. So while another hearing today in this in ninety gave process that orient and at the end of it. There will be some decisions made by day all the different panels and boards looking and ultimately by the City Council but then. Our legal experts say it's an open court. Up to its stated their race all along could be just tied up. Various lawsuits even the governor is looking for a witness to a private citizens. The group to maintain the monuments are expected to suit they haven't ready and I don't know this thing will be decided eight times. And you know I was like I filled in for Garland yesterday one of the topics that was really was talking about the hash tag black lives matter. And tag Lou lives matter after the murder. Police officer in Houston and shootings assuming police trees. And then in the past that all lives and orders that tag lives in. And it seems that many of these efforts. To right wrongs are correct. Any qualities or whatever it is in our society tend to terrorists apart more than they bring us together. And I know. That. While the effort is to right wrongs of the past or right wrongs of the present. I sometimes think there are unintended consequences. And a lot of people believe that this police officer in Houston was murdered. Because of the out not from not from the movement of black lives matter but from the way it's grown in bubbled up in different venues there's some social media sites. That are calling for the murders of police officers in the wake. Of the shooting of unarmed black man in several high profile cases. Was the killer in this case in Houston for the shooters of police officers in other cases motivated by the anti police sentiment. I don't know I know some people truly believe it was and others are not a fair. Either way. We've got a country right now it's being. Diced up and torn apart out ripped out ripped apart. As it tries to find its way in terms racial. Issues. Somebody told me yesterday said harsher wouldn't wanna be a cop. Tuesday's. The hard part. That's always gonna respected. Profession I've seen video of groups chanting carrying signs and banners. Saying. Pigs in a blanket fry the bacon. Indicating kill police she. I don't know I don't know. The monument removal effort that black lives matter effort if those are ultimately going to lead to more harmony. More discord. Anger and apparatus.

Saints' roster now sits at 75 as the team opted to let go of a handful of familiar names. Receiver nick toon is the most notable as the formal fourth round draft pick was expected to be a big part of the offense this year before training camp. Kicked off. We KG came Bobby Hebert says though he pretty much saw the writing on the wall for June. And he was somewhat in trouble and hit them high ankle spring that's like a broken ankle you know four to six weeks ago I was that he pilot might be on the outside looking in for a full rundown of all the scenes roster moves go to WWL dot com. The Green Bay Packers had some good news about there injury stricken receiving corps receiver Randall Cobb hopes to be back for the season opener on September 13 against the bears.

Serious opponents last year and give them a run for their money.

What Las Vegas has the lying currently having Jack. Well check on that or YouTube ignorant like Clement two more sports in most if you think it's where it belongs UB. Are you surprised by nick ten or any of the other saints cut. By yesterday's deadline. I guess if you had told me of nick who was gonna get a cup before training camp I would've because he was one of the more bettering guys. And was thought to be a major part of this offense going into the season that one touchdown ever. Right but after after seeing him in training camp really just. Fall behind the depth chart to so many of the younger guys not a surprise at all another guy that's really disappointing linebacker Ronald Powell is thought to be ebooks. Apart just couldn't do it.

You know I shoot for that eight hours man aren't really true I'd do everything I can't make that happen once in a bloom in my. The case and I'm like gated house. That I'm look at it 560. Really deny. That. Demands are telling us news studies found that people who sleep last may get sick more because our immune systems are compromised Meyer. Body's inability to get enough rest but you don't get sick. I doubt. Some have worked here seventeen. Now might give us years. No eighteen partly 818 already. And I've used 16 day and it wasn't sick. And an appointment and I used a sick day for appointment. So they just ran some tests. Based on some read it anyway point is you didn't get in the study Agassi and studied me not. By and large. How much usual in many ways shapes and forms and I guess that's another. But yet you don't get enough sleep. You get sick more often takes minutes avenue it's that folks is that you find that to be true if you don't sleep enough you find you're getting more sniffles and sneezes coughs colds. Are you Mormon you are you more susceptible to allergies if you don't sleep enough it would seem that you're going to be a little more run down it would make a dollar and on I would think you know than sums gonna creep in on I am tired man live like tired. Because I don't sleep. But I discount at some point get used to have been working in morning radios since I was sixteen years lol yes. And so for many many years I've been giving up before the sunrise. End. Him about it I guess never get used to it. But I adapted to being tired oh yeah. System where it is but I thought about falsely but the wheels and injuring myself and others I'm okay. Sex sells right we doll we've known that forever that if you make an ad sexier you promoter Arpaio with that man you know if you have sexy people in your ads. It just works it always has and I think you know is well. Well they're trying that. Out in the western US the tram promote water conservancy. You know they've got this horrible drought aria and they're trying to convince people use last waters are now and Las Vegas the same. Firms it's sort of the what happens here stays here what happens in Vegas stays in mayor asks I was very successful as started there's nothing sexier than stating quarter. Employee. And I eventually got they got the people that match not yet they're launching the ad campaign to promote water conservation because they just don't have enough water to go around at the record breaking drought. And other candidates use sexy people saying okay. I think your high fees if you conserve water. You know waters on. Aid they try to attempt has already excellent will racers and they have items fighting adds one says. Short and steamy. At other watches it now it's sure to stick it to make quick shower. Merits they use less water another one and it took me a little while to figure out what this meant widest on the slogan in San Francisco with go full front. Low. And the way however that I'm doing your honor conservation. They're encouraging people to buy front loading washing machines. Because they use less water than them top load washing machine. The sounds very California like if you really does yes. So it lives in San Francisco and Las Vegas. Guy in their efforts to give people use less water. There are using sixty advertisements. And you know what. It's sad but it's true in now on it from personal experience that I know it from. Recent XP that sex sells just about how do you make it adds sexy and it's whoever thought. Conserving water would be a Sox ahead of them but no matter what it is. You make it sexy and it just works it works on men and women. Am bored so one man. By you know work and it we can't defeat that part of our brains you know. No matter how many sexy people we've ever seen airlines Leo was on a few more sexy people. In that you can never get too many looks at sexy people yeah exactly. Are you are documents wonderment I like long hot steamy. Each hours ago on forever that's not sexy I'm sorry that was sent sent this up. San Francisco is that it is like its shortest. Of shorts Catalina award that goes with six. Malone and I can't think of many instances. Anyway let's on this conversation articulate. Our guys let's do let's give them. This figure out of work like dogs do. Your personal. Chance to do them as your own. Welcomed a home. A hot on them. Is that important. To let them like this morning and a couple of showers along the coastline that's change we have a whopping 20% Chancery yes I agree yes it twice as what it was quite yet it is that the hired yesterday and it's are higher today up to thirty for that. Spot storms possible. They gallon and may cool things up just a hair but not. For Jim many people like him behind me yep exactly hot it's. Steamy and we're gonna keep temperatures upper eighties to lower nineties through the weekend some days we may not hit ninety's it's all depend on whether you steal little more cloud cover up what he seats is it justice can be dependent on that that there will be some spots that reach 1991. Other areas will likely stay you know up near ninety years. All right what is the fall actually revenue NATO's meteorological call started yet yesterday right all itself this year is well number twenty ash or not. A coal fall yet they're two different kinds of fault met their ecological fall which a lot of people go by and actually comical fault which really. Doesn't make a whole lot of spent other than it's kind of tight the planets in this stars and the alignment there and it's a one on a calendars. Yeah but it's it's. I'll have people are starting to go by more than meteorological fall now because really we attribute urology or what do you think December 20 this year. If that fall. Well all of the 21 my counters as it went right so it was the twentieth seem like follow the distance the fall right won that battle days seem like Claudia well September October but that. Our fault it got to make that provided its red minor yet exactly my idea yet though too so I just look at it it's silvery white. You definitely yes that the autumnal equinox September 23. At 3:30 in the morning or something like that. Which is the astronomical start a fall well. I hope we've made that crystal clear to everybody knew not to plot astronomical faulty different sorts of unity get a vote speaker direction going to weight that you add them to meet December 20 at fault but. Now and that streak and at the last day of Rahal officially winter starts eight feet by astronomical winter starts on the winter solstice which comes around the 21 twenty's back and a dusk and he's been effective fall this year astronomical fall starts on the 23. September I was that it was the twentieth that it when he pars you know it changes in yeah that is it is usually around that time when he first. Harry. Theory just like the Michael Mears and the like that. It's in there and feel little smarter. Or a little confused. Path. Feel like breakfast. Yeah. Yeah yeah fan of hockey hostages known accurately and I don't really cute breakfast I eat a lot of you know for us. Yeah yeah yeah big juicy steak first thing in the morning well yes I would definitely. I would have been mistaken right but McDonald's is thinking that we all want our breakfast at won at the other way around I want I want the workers. Makers and Burger King does that. Oh good in Burger King elected by a half times ideas that aren't signing him for a hamburger I don't want to insult you last night at American. If you look at where hot cakes and sausages are made in the muffins and sausage burritos. And let it all mcdonalds any time all day there in through the nighttime yet there's. 24 hours your rounds yet day around your round habit there whenever they're open at seven breakfast now McDonald's I guess think figured that would start to work for them and let people that are. Requesting that later and later they've been losing market share in the trying anything rhetorically when you get down there do you think that it's going to be the key right here well for me I think they missed one major thing affect I love when it comes to what breakfast offerings they haven't McDonald's. The what you yet. I'm well that's on it and I have to just forgot the name of it the new thing that is great learning griddle thank you make riddle yeah again that night that's not on the on the menu and I yankees stopped when I drove to Chicago over the summer stopped at a McDonald's in Missouri where they had the audit practices on the tennis yeah they've got that much and they've got biscuits is excellent. But yet they don't have the Holbrooke that. And they didn't have the make griddle after. It's the commit. When you do get faster breakfast yet fair place. And probably the McDonald's has. It. Just kept our. That they you know I'd like to make your idol but my favorite all time breakfast and murder in the course and. I love. For ebony and lie about it. Three years I don't know a lot that's my best regular inept for me. It's not about breakfast went back. Pocket and they. You're seeing that kind of waffled. Gas wanted to do it I don't know it and make it read like mcdonalds but that are at right that is on the holiday menu it may go light right now too so whatever with it. Feel like there's there's room for improvement you talk about. Negotiate. Now getting up at the highest bid you work to. I do have a board of a doubt. And right from the pinpoint forecast it's got the best fast food breakfast tonight glad McDonald is gonna serve breakfast all day text made it 7870 look at Steve Geller in here and act. He's got to talk to us about the saints tigers in sports all mind. One person tax rated 787 aces I agree with the study that says if you don't sleep enough you get sick I'm going through some problems at home right now and I'm not slipping as much and I'm sick. European feel better and I hope you resolve whatever problem you're going through. At home with somebody else Texas says I get three to five hours of sleep on average I'm not one to get sick. Then would know what to do with it or lose when it gaff when he's on vacation recently actually slap. For like eight hours and who is simply confused by that I woke them like a lap. A delicate hasn't missed an entire day as a mile arm has been set for 4:45 AM. Two and a half years but I'll never get used now I'm an Italian I've been getting up for decades. Before the sun rise and I'm my body has never gotten used to it not something you can adapt to it not natural it's not normal. Out of prisons and I'm fifty now I go to bed every night at eleven and get up at 4 AM so going to be five hours of sleep. I've never taken a day off in mine to Ireland that's me I barely sleep I sleep for five hours tonight. And I'm never sick. But I understand why studies find people who don't sleep enough get sick more often. Think maybe where the acceptance of the rule I don't know keep Texan made it 7870 what we throw this these stellar since sports on this. Good morning the saints have placed veteran linebacker Anthony Spencer on injured reboot reserve wall getting down to the NFL mandated 75 players. Rookie quarterback DJ Williams also lands on the IR all the team waves CTV series receiver nick toon. And linebacker Ronald Powell was Barry's undisclosed injuries. One thing that the KG came obviate there will always say about Powell who was a round draft pick is that he looks like Tarzan but plays like Jane. Never really to me when you'd watch him and you warn him to excel of one on one pass rush it just never happen. So he was one that definitely I would say considering his god given ability under achiever you can see the entire list of saints moves to get the roster down to 75 by going to WWL dot com. Fighting tigers football season opener is now just three days away let's hear that up to the big key for LSU vs bikinis state preview. Like you whose ranks thirteenth in the coaches poll and fourteenth and the Associated Press top 25. So what the expectations we LSU tigers fiscal plasma. There's always say expectation that comes with a seasonal Hearn an expectation with this room that we played a very high level. Period and now I would think that this team has that capability. The tigers open a season Saturday night against instate foe make niece state Deke Bellavia WW real sports Roger Federer and some Mona how were among the first round winners at the US open yesterday Federer dropped just five games in his straight sets victory. Other winners on the men's side include third seed Andy Murray this beats them Erykah. And succeed Thomas birdcage that they have four on sports talk which players do you feel are any make or break situation for the saints in the final pre season game tomorrow. Then at seven it's so lets smile show I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look. At sports I could GeForce six in front of sixty guns together with you on your radio can't wait to hear less miles tonight one army calls is gonna get people asking him about his. Coffee overdosed at sent into the hospital on beta miss Monday's news conference with a 12 blasts. Yeah I'm sure he'll have some colorful comments responding to that again. Arm and just really anxious for the college football season begin the games kick off tomorrow and then of course we got Saturday night in Death Valley against acne state. I'm expecting a big showing from Ella she's offense and defense number one on the game is not been released yet I looked on the are a lot of that is pretty tough games there is no line because there's so on balance. Yeah I would imagine that would be some heavy action going on LSU to cover because I don't know what number you would be able to put on the game. And the sense got to make a bunch more cuts by Saturday. Every more surprises on. Yeah I definitely and I think that this game coming up the wallet might not be important obviously for the starters a lot of guys will be fighting for their lives you know others their roster spots. In this contest as the united Green Bay I think we'll see a little bit better competition level they should be stepped up a notch. Will accuse step it up a notch and be back with more port to fifteen minutes yet WWL. Your text messages on best practice decadence. To McDonald's is gonna serve breakfast all day.
