    Tue, 21 Oct 2014

    You know David and I'm not in but it successful heart surgeon at blows save people's lives in the lateness Mattel girls. All yells out tell a single lady does Bartok yet exactly I'm sorry I'm just a simple country long way here but I Italian. Mum. First of its hard to keep realize street yeah this idea how about CEO of your massive company that. Yeah. See you liked one. Of new York new high tech company news hi tech startup idea and yeah. But already you've had offers from Google and you know about this about new startup now IPO. Only drew eight billion and we were open from Portland that's a yeah. That'll get your day and ailments he says light ripening camera with a fender that duct taped. Let's just say security and security reasons there's of people and ideas they can exactly you're out. I admit seriously and visible thing with what concerns me and I get a text here about the new protocol. Unable healthcare workers gonna have to undergo special training to demonstrate companies seen using protective equipment use of the gear. Now including coveralls and single use disposable hoods must be overseen by a supervisor. To ensure proper procedure those procedures are followed when caring for patients with people. And I guess that the question and I hand is you have to be health care professional to shoot these new protocol I would think. Protocols I would think you would be. And and the the gentlemen we can oranges now and says it's 67 hours of training it meaning he'll watch him one date to make sure they know about it. To do it and and I I always break things down to duck it would Howard to do this it's a great idea how are we going to do this because they are on the Frontline. En us that's all the Oxford street doctors and health care workers health care workers. Noting that if you are health care worker. I mean you know you can have the best of intentions but. Can you afford to go unless I'm missing something here can you afford to go to West Africa take whatever time it does do the training. Risk getting. And then after you do get back you look 121 days. In quarantine and believe that's what would happen if you go over there if your health care professional. Well I don't think a nurse can afford to do that you. Aren't all unless they brought I think there's probably going to be a monetary incentive. You know to get people ago I think you would have to you and if you're a medical health care professional I would like I'm not that there's got to kind of like a tortilla. About would you go. And Kenya afford to do that because I don't think a doctor unless these independently wealthy enough the in hi he got up and millionaire tonight give up his practice gasoline and he's got patience there she's got a patient cedar. So I'd like to talk TO about this welcome back maybe. Donna Edwards can channel light on this bit of a doubt because she's an organizer for benefit concert. For people research and only too well I don't know we'll see tell me if your health care professional. On here for amicus I don't know of anybody who can do that and where they gonna come from the need these huge. But how many people can actually. Afford to take that much time on their lives and on their bank accounts coming back and flinched at a W I Tommy Tucker got a real beautiful listening fall morning. Gotta take a couple of seconds enjoy that at least before you begin the grind. Clear cool low humidity to day highs around seven the 67 eaters so and then. Wins in the northeast five to attend a make it feel even cooler than that same for tomorrow. Maybe it's hand warmer than Thursday highs of 76. And Friday highs around 79 but clear and Brian. Is beautiful Donnie Edwards joins us right now she is the organizer for the benefit concert for people are re search. And relief that Tulane University morning Donna. I. Ansari. I'm doing well and you. Before we go down the wrong road. Our US health care professional or you just involved in promoting concert. I popular did it at his age and biomedical science diet program. And and I am embarked in court maybe put a battery. IT and the reason I ask you this and you may now wanting to get involved but. I you know I just wonder when it comes of the call for health care workers to help the people in West Africa. And teach them did the proper protocols. Who could afford. Be it a nurse or doctor I don't know what other healthcare professionals they want to guess biologists. To take that time off and go. And and risk Ebola then if they get it they're not coming back to the United States to be treated I don't think and 21 days minimum quarantine when you come bank. And understand who could afford to do it is. Great and I like your day by. We agree that the mayor and how care workers still actually sacrificed their time. I do you got a god bless him I just I don't know. Who could do it I guess when I'm sane. It is people and I guess it. Here they are basically zero. They era. In there Akron right there I mean how it or eight people that are devastating speculation has. And speaking of which you you're trying to raise some money. For that effort with a concert right. Yet that Adam Lee hit two lane has passed a dairy corporate partner really act. We can have a government hospital here early at least at the age and injury accurate banner on the front lines at the Ebola outbreak. Actually did and we are obligated to quiet her factored in there international. In effort. So in order to support that we are raking and start like state in part and protective equipment. Cricket in their IP little antibiotics. Aaron for curbing back in areas action. And merely personal protective protective equipment. Wicket that our and that is a map that you see on the news. Yeah they need a lot. PPE. Actually stopped from being effective in treating the patient. I see the note here on a Presley's biggest news of personal protective suits hospital workers caring for patients. Need to suits per day at a cost of tax dollars each but is that. If there are only treating one patient. But now. Dare they're treating high and it's a patient outline I need. Put him away and asking Donnie you wouldn't have to put on a new suit each time you treat somebody different. Is at a question once you are in the war. You have to learn that you get any actor or northern new. Yes of that the need for suits as a I generally I only I can't leave their only ten dollars each. Great and Adam. There are part international and it didn't allow that. You know they're an act that these type a supply rich hacker well it is spam act being acted. I'm in so we're really seeing two sidekick and then over personal protective gear that they need. And Adam. It. It can't dollar hurt in the end it typically wiper expects let me dollar per day and we can't he act. Ulbrich and rhetoric are at or near Leo. And so it's a it's. Celebrating Sierra Leone and it happens. Friday night at the new loans house of blues. I ain't me. The ask. We hear it in a car. A general electorate. War mean. An op silent auction rate can't grab. Odd day. In right and Mary dies down. There's a lot of damage. And we're all we're doing Iraq will battle it going to be a lot of land. One down in an app but it's something important there and mind. If for whatever reason summoning as a conflict may be the era. Maybe they're on to a wedding. Maybe date they have some work function that night meted to sit around at the dog and I don't believe how can make contribution otherwise done. I simply can't that we dealt by me I teach kids Arabic site at WW. W dot they'll bite me. Back flag. Celebrating. Sierra Lee now. Aniston is the difference in the spelling and he did you will go funny dot com get there. Gated. Don't I mean it is fair game the patent idea to electorate is celebrating Sierra Leon now they're celebrating your outlook that act. I represented at the yearly. And and we spoke to. Gentlemen a doctor from Tulane that dating you guys very involved in in trying to develop treatment right. Yes that doctor Robert the airy. Is actually that. Head of the viral hemorrhagic consortium of her and hear the RE opted to beat up but I am I ain't that program. So there's really accurate how does that do it at Tulane school and that it. He's been a West Africa as in. I knew yet. Says a connection between Tulane and what's going notable and I hope we can help you at 7 o'clock Friday 9 October 24. At the house of blues a lot of fun some great items have been on an if you would just like to. Or can't go to stay home Ratajczak noted www. Go on to me. Common and I guesstimate how you'd type in celebrating at Sierra Leone will come in but its capital list Somali capital L and parading. Sierra Leo and thank you so much done and done everything you deal and and god bless mantown at stuff for the people that are over there and and to try to get somebody to go now I think you're right those are real heroes do that. Thank you gonna have a great afternoon and a great day 24 time coded traffic. He. Threat yet and I talking about a full of 43 people including five of them kids now a lot of quarantine and Dallas after 21 days of monitoring. No signs of global. A judge says eight community and you look among with grace compassion nothing's wrong with them. I'm asking you would you if you knew somebody was return and your neighborhood your workplace a year kids' school it'd been quarantined with a bowl would you say you know what. It's over they don't have it just. Come on in oh lead at DO drink gift do you do whatever. And in terms of volunteers. There's different web sites and there aren't enough and it's an out of control quickly which means the military's gonna have to go win. So I would ask you if you remember the National Guard or member. A family member of a member of the National Guard you OK with them on West African Delphi edible right now time for them and WL first news for that. Go to David Blake we continue our conversation about a bullet and would you be concerned if if your neighbor or somebody you work with north. Maybe even some edit your kids' school was quarantined three bull has happened in Dallas and then you were found not to have it in at least in the community and judge here sizzler. Treat these people with grace and compassion. They have been through enough and I'm asking you would you know. And attacks comes in and of a serious ignited says if my neighbor was quarantine I would stay away from him and a drop off of potting number owners stoop. And run. Of its are not distances Tommy how can help a country where witch doctors. Still tell aids people in need of virgin Acura need raw animals that are carriers of disease. They parade their dead in the streets for days even those with diseased the un bury their dead on anniversary in feast with them. Some dance and party with them going to ordered to order relative disease. There's many cultures that are still doing clean unsafe practices. I don't Jordan auditing and one at the university you know. Yeah. Mickey the season. They look at him yeah. When one. They come from I don't know. No but anyway another one says timing in this series one about being healthcare workers with all those weights but Shelvin what is that. As a medical personnel was sec says. In the military including National Guard had no choice Abel told they will go if told and I guess it comes down to the question of whether York. The the nation is the world's police force is well as the nation's doctors. Other worlds doctor revenue and is on good morning Tommy is a position I answer your question about training no. We cannot afford the time and resources go to West Africa for Ebola precautions. As it strikes here we are more aware of the proper protocols and procedures training has already started at local hospitals we can't afford to get caught off guard. On this we've learned a lot of the missteps that occurred in Dallas. As well and then there's this one from a nurses absolutely I would go on also I healthcare professional way you know our and it would visit him daily bring them food. And attacked him from people who are ignorant and but I think it's. There's one issue of of morality and wanting to help and as another you can afford to jump Greg could you afford to take that chance I just son of a Doctor Who would closes office floor. Or is practiced for 68 weeks whatever it took I don't know of a nursing can afford to take the time off to do that. But I'd like to know and I would also like to talk to you about the French Quarter when we come back another person killed 5:30 in the morning. And a couple of video beatings as well when it's safe to being a quarter when it isn't that in a flash of a W. That is anything I think. It is being remiss. My great great grandfather today at Tucker said you know what. Don't ever be remiss. And I am remiss in a couple of things first off reminding you about are ready jaguar opinion apple. Which isn't going to try to be flippant or sarcastic or anything with this for trying to gauge where exactly you are in terms of priorities in your life. And a question and these numbers have been pretty consistent the answers and 6 o'clock. This morning what scares you more brain eating amoeba. Percent consent is concerned rather with brain eating a Meebo or being afraid of that. 28%. Are afraid of Ebola. And 56%. Are afraid of the saints' schedule. So give me Collie and answer that in 260187. Neitzel 3866889087. And again with apologies my great great great grandfather I was remiss. In reminding you about the national World War II museums victory big band concert. Other Libya once you and a guest to put on nude dance and use and swing to the sounds. Of swing from the war years reform by the national lowered to museums victory big band. And victory bells at the newly restored art Deco new loans Lakefront airport terminal. On Friday night. Of the candle Friday please let somebody yells when the ticketing and diner owner Dervis and gourmet dishes from the cnet's. Let's explore the air power expo which is a fleet of legendary World War II aircraft and an assortment of fighters trainers. And liaison aircraft all fully restored. And ready to fly so when you hear jet airliner by the Steve Miller band and I think you all know that sounds like. Negated a number to call and if you are color number eight you win. With the World War II museum and got a W well this happened. Very shortly attacks comes and I think it's time to start checkpoints in the French Quarter anyone can be checked. And I think there's more about it timing thing when it comes in the French Quarter is what got our attention. Two weekends ago I think it is somebody got. Held up armed robbery for 19 AM Sunday morning 3200 blocker royal. And twenty minutes later. And has captured on video for five guys attacked him in the 800 block of Saint Louis right by burden. That is not the bowels of the quarter at all and they get to. Women that are watch in his happened and I enough there are part of it or not but no shot no runaway now and other news watch him like. The lazy lucky dog on the street French Quarter while Lee's four miscreants beat this man senseless. Knocked him down level this property and money then this weekend. A a person was killed by drunk driver and a quarter when nom. When a drunk driver hit a Poland Italy was the pulled that kilter. And my question do you is is it safe to walk around the quarter late at night or early in the morning because sometimes will come in. Here at 4 o'clock in the morning and we'll see people's strangling home in areas of this anyway I've probably. Maybe it would be a little bit hesitant to walk in the daytime but certainly at 4:30 in the morning and and not in control myself as some drop. Not that I drink anymore but back in the day. And here to me is the conundrum. I think part of deal lore of new long ones is that you can come here. The bars don't close at two you can drink until 430 if you want an angle back the hotel rooms sleep it off start all over. But if it's not safe. To do that. Should you somehow warn tourists evidence say you know what. He put a sign up percent and urges with the counts here saying. If you go I'd take a cab back from wherever you are don't leave Teague at camp say if it's after midnight or if it's after 1 o'clock. And house will would you tell friends who were visiting the French Quarter I'd tell mullah. If yet on out by 1 o'clock. I would be very careful about where you go because it's. It's like in the old west where the to distract voters are gonna get caught and and salted so tell me how you would handle Hannity 6018780386. Exit 89087. In. Now I know because. I wouldn't be comfortable walking around a quarter for 35 o'clock in the morning. And again this is not an area deepen in the dark dank. The debt and I mean that pejorative Lee but he in the in the area where people aren't aren't this is too aren't there this is Saint Louis. Very close to burden where four guys jump on this other guy beating. And two women standing there with a deck cores or whatever it is and hand his watch it like it's part of the she'll wait 51. Nine before nine time look at Traficant for that we go to terror Robinson. 857 Tommy Tucker let's congratulate Steve Newman gave just one appeared tickets of the national World War II museum's air power swing. At the new loans Lakefront airport Friday night tickets valued and a 150. Smack her studies. And you didn't when you want more information call 50452. Late 1944. Or visit www. National world wars Berkeley national. WW two museum dot org is it. Matters they voted their www. National WW two museum Dodd award. It will have another chance we'd win tickets. All week long here with us in the morning good luck in the national World War II museum. And WWL. We still have a Drew Brees domination teacher to give away. It was born right here in new long ones. And if you win a T shirt you get a a Drew Brees nine brand domination teacher but even if you don't win it you can join drew when the domination movement. Abide domination T shirt go to your neighborhood Winn-Dixie your shop online now at again it matters and I any brand. Dot com not the normal but spell it out and I EU and I any brand dot com for every teacher sold. One dollar goes a great cause the second harvest food bank on Thursday we giveaway shirt that is actually signed. By Drew Brees and when it comes to calm. The quarter being a safe place late at night the the most recent deaths Lou is really sad young lady named Taylor McDonald they before her birthday Sarah fiancee says he was gonna propose. That night and both for they decided to go to the quarter a mother reminded her do not drink and drive. But she says she forgot to one in this young lady that there are other people out there they drink and drive about 5:15 AM Sunday morning. The alarm and gone in on our friends Walken and a quarter trying to find nick Carr see slightly minder friends 400 block ever Gundy. And they hear a crash in a banger frenzied turn around. And see airline owners comic with their hand on her head. And she got hit in the hand nets were killed. Don't driver's seat tell me what what what's what's the the out time for the quarter where you would feel safe I would feel. Very on hesitant to say they're after 1 o'clock and if I had people visiting from out of town and so on talent you know like. Go have fun stay with the crowd and get out by one. What would you say and is that gonna hurt the reputation in new loans if A you can drink all night if you don't be safe betting home by 1 o'clock back and slash WW.

The pelicans tipped off their five game Mardi -- road trip with a 10 wait till 89 loss to the mavericks meanwhile has dropped their fifth straight game but that's not even the worst news. Spears Davis in the -- -- with a right hand couldn't get the member's bounce it and everything but go win.

The -- Jackson made sixty and then -- 96 starts for the browns and eight seasons. The team and player were unable to come to terms on a new contract for the 31 year old linebacker. Therefore on sports talk that deadline to place the franchise tag on NFL players as Monday. Should the saints used bears on Jimmy Graham and Steve Geller naturally morning and look at sports. I was 21 -- on Steve -- with you on your -- so we really don't know how bad Anthony davis' shoulders it is bad enough that he had to leave the gaming could not come back and play in the second. No he did come to the sidelines it was in a sling but there -- bit there at the team's only saying that he sprained left shoulder. And just this season as you know you hate this -- curse their bad luck this -- -- -- doesn't have any good book. Mean things. -- Anthony Davis. What they -- last. And I mean it was a close they were actually that in with the mavericks which I -- given much chance in this game. They were battling with the mavs Anthony Davis went out and that it just it was all downhill from there. It would. This this has been one of the worst. Seasons I can ever imagine or remember. -- -- for any kind of team I guess the question as this coach Mike Williams get past this season because of the injuries and all the other problems that plagued this team. -- it is certainly can -- in his new coach. Well but that's been a lot of the buzz everyone's saying that you know money's not getting the job done but I feel like the franchise will give him another shot just because. No Ryan Anderson no Jrue Holiday -- Jason Smith and now possibly. No -- Davis for an extended period of time again if we'll be -- extended but. A period of time but we'll have to let you go for now -- -- -- 25 minutes more sports here on WWL am FM and account. Back with your cold to start but much warmer in the end forecast after this. -- -- -- -- good morning I'm game how it's purely business every WL first news man it's the -- before Friday.

For the next couple of days -- evening crates of beautiful tonight just a little on the chilly side temperatures will be falling into the forties. An overnight lows around thirty on the North Shore and 37 south of the late. Where up to 65 on Friday with partly cloudy skies and even warmer on Saturday with a few clouds highs of 73. From the amnesties forecast -- I'm meteorologist -- Tell -- bundle up this morning it feels like the Taiwanese all across the region it's 37. At the airport in Canada now feels like 28 feels like 27 at the -- Lakefront airport port -- 26 in Slidell. Where it's mostly cloudy and 34 degrees. Hammond and -- it's actually 32 right at freezing but feels like 26 or 27 degrees may have some frost out there north of the late this morning and out in the areas away from the cities to be ready for that. If feared getting out and about on this -- before Friday so -- in -- ruling. Yesterday from a federal court in Texas San Antonio. Where federal judge ruled that State's ban on gay marriages unconstitutional. So what that means is now that the US fifth circuit court of field right here in downtown New Orleans is gonna hear the appeal that case. Legal analyst Tim match there's a lot of work for us says. Every court so far that is look at this issue since the Supreme Court tennis changes the game. Has found that it is illegal to ban same sex marriage -- he expects the fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans do agree with the Texas court. And uphold the ruling. He -- with that will immediately then do is say. The constitutional amendment against gay marriage in Louisiana is also unconstitutional. So before the end of this year gay marriage could be lethal in Louisiana. To the supreme court's gonna have to finally -- -- that that fifth circuit agrees with the Texas court. -- that will throw out according to demand Louisiana's and I and image how you feel about that. -- -- this morning I'm Dave Cohen thank you -- the early edition of WWL first news so why are all of these federal courts. Overturning state bans on gay marriage legal analyst -- says it's because the lawyers for those states. Have not been able to present a compelling reason why it's in the State's interest. To outlaw. Same sex partners from getting married. That they tried the fertility debates saying hey. The purpose of marriages to promote procreation and child -- so two people of the same sex can't do that. That the promise that though is that the other side fires back OK so then shouldn't we ban people who are over the age of child bearing years from getting married to we -- people in their eighties to get married. That would be the same he says should we ban people are infertile or unable to have children from getting married. So that. That argument has failed in the federal courts they briefly tried to religious argument but. -- the First Amendment of the constitution. Took care of that and he said there's no religious argument that can be made it will hold up to constitutional Muster to -- so far states have not had any successful argument. On why gay marriage should be illegal. Carol is calling from Covington. Do you have any argument you think the courts would buy as to why gay marriage should be outlawed. Yet made it a back seat that they yell and to the Bible. And read it -- -- use. Yeah but the viral you can't use the Bible as evidence in court.
