So today that we I I couldn't I will hear listen to it on pot can Kelly listen to them podcast last night she said it was. Just jaw drop so here's what I decided over the weekend and I haven't even talked to nor Abbas about this but I know he won't care. We have. Over the course of seven years had so many interesting things happen and funny things happen and so shocking things and sand things. That we really are to the point that I need an intern number one. And we meet kids. Go through and Sam's called is the one that kind of really brought this sound to me we're going to go through and do it showed just of those callers that at and we could fiddle. Probably find out here that one woman whose kids were killed yes in the inner city there's the woman who said we want strong black men. We want I think that's a strong black women and you know ever wants while we get one of those the problem is I have not been keeping a diary of those dates and shows so. It's gonna take some work to go back and find them and that's what union entered and that's why I need an intern as I'm like I'm content and her reach him. Whose golf. But here's the deal there's definitely are more than four hours of work it's not done it lastly let's. You work force feed or not I actually. Worked I mean and I was open Allen it's the one who began the year. I work and that's why tweeted to you I didn't buy a sharp and I wasn't joking like I actually at one point. I hope you get eaten by a shark killed but like the source it girl who wouldn't with two arms and came out with a neck out. What if it's the day you sent picture number tear to Dana was that I that she's like did you well decided reply yes I in fact was in. Oh really that heads wells that.

Well. Yeah such as mad because it hurt your group got disqualified. Because she had to report to work so that poor MacKey had asked likening indictment here's the deal when I went Scott's gone I've kind of gotten to a place where I really just prefer.

Worse intentionally and ask ride. The second time it happened I was like. I like wind bombed him I was like get. Out. And in a span. So I really am happy he came.

Knows what it's a heart attack was that the I. But I will lightly educated part of my brain knows it's not a heart attack like I know what that is because it was progressively getting worse all morning. And it just gets to a point where. It's like a a pot of water that just once it boils over there's no bring in the water back it let's start it doesn't matter and sometimes it can be something sometimes it can mean did you that your your pills with you I did it it's probably once every six months for me and I have friends who have debilitating.

And something every one listening to this program needs to know I cannot wait to tell you but I honestly off the year first as are gonna freak out. 76779. It to be back. Turks and caicos to have the band back together again Caremark to rub up to date right I'm scuff marks Tatum. I told you my Volkswagen from all secondly it's Dominic containment and it actor ever. Slightly summit they and the greatest deals going on right now. It's one of the things I love about my guys at Volkswagen Lee's summit.

Has got to be immediately summoned the lees summit and you tell you wanna see Dana's car. Monday afternoon. Can't sit. So it's. If you're driving I don't want you to do this but you're going to want to do this minute. You are not behind the well. Mostly for the women listening I would guess but I know there's a lot of men who probably use this app. So over the weekend we had a woman missing in Leland jogger who left today AM safely found at 8:30 PM so you know. There is an app called next door it is one of the fastest growing growing number acts apps in the world common spelling next door. Next door okay. And if you're listening and you live and is a suburb I guarantee you the people listening that are on that note on it. The apps a little white house on a green background check. So I am on that app. Saturday because people were saying there was a flash her. On one of the jogging trails in there were trying to find this woman and be helpful. And I know some of the comments Scott we're just not helpful they were audit. Inappropriate for for the severity of the situation to those who would even assume woman giving up people offering to help in kind of weird ways with when the Lima police department really just needed. You know they didn't need 101000 people showing up with their dogs trying to help find this woman. They had two rounds up all the stuff and so on one of the post that I found to be very odd in an appropriate it was in my neighborhood just won't. And so I clicked on her name on the next door at secretary house like who is this. And the minute I clicked on her name. In large bold letters. I see her name. Her picture. And her full. Address. This is there poster popular woman who's this a poster. Now some of you listening might think. Why do I care of my address is out there for the world to see and I don't know it. People do not realize. That if you are on next door. Or a handful of these other neighborhood apps. It's stuff like this guy it's like. Kenny Lyon suggested that plumber. I need to babysit her anyone babysitting. And sometimes it's like some guys flashed me an iron would spark today I've called police be on the lookout and it can be helpful. For certain things and a lot of women are on this next door app. What you do not realize. About that app is the puts your photo. Your subdivision. And your exact. Address. Out there doesn't know every one to see. Because when you sign up that wants to know what neighborhood you live in policy but don't tell you that this is deep fault. And the reason I wanna warn everybody about this today's Staten. If you are a police officer. A prosecutor. If you works in. Education I'm trying to think of all of the different professions and help me out here Kara. Where you would never. Want your address posted for the public to see certainly if you're a judge.

Slight chance of a lingering storm early Tuesday that abundant sunshine we're gonna trend not a high back to the upper eighty's as he showers in a storm returning Tuesday night. I'm staff meteorologist Chad different aero more KE NBC weather. 93 it case CI it is 95 downtown 9040 or official weather station. The radio dot com mapping is the official home of KM BZ download it saying listen to us any time anywhere. Kara marks or news NBA one KM BZ. Amateur he. Yeah. And talking about this. App next school. Which apparently you post comments. It gives out because you have to register. You're exact address. And here's sort of struggle with Dana what's the big deal. Anybody can find your address and know your name is it is 64. Neighborhoods. Surrounding. Your neighborhood and so people think well these are neighbors of mine. One how many of your neighbors do you really now when you start going out in concentric circles. You're talking about 64 neighborhoods around my neighborhood that is tens of thousands of people and from time to time just like any social network things become. He did. Fear here is one example from that Mercury news.com has been a lot written about does. In my neighborhood woman posted a photo of a teenager who she claimed had been driving recklessly. She hoped that people would see his face and tell his parents. Someone else bullied someone about the frequency with which they watered there jar. And so from there it can escalate back and forth and back and forth. And I think there is good out of these apps like I just saw a beat up van driving slowly. You know looking through windows. That's good things. But like it was all good things on the Internet it can be a very bad thing and so like I said if you reckon a lot of public safety. And industries if you works in education I'm guessing my teachers listening. I would not want. My address posted publicly for the world to see. And what what made me angry about this next door app is that the deep fault is showing your. Address and information. Yet to go into settings and remove it. The d.s fault is sharing that information so all of my cops listening. Ask your husbands or wives are we on that app your address is posted. I'm looking at upper and I think if if I go to a certain website displaying them so. I think I can find your address. It shouldn't be posted to me. On a social media platform with tens of thousands of strangers. Winds from time to time there are going to be disputes. That turn. Merger ugly. I'm saying I know what I'm saying is if somebody wanted to find. They can't find I mean I just major address on what you're you are forgetting. Is that like a FaceBook. Be like you being on Facebook's got with every listener in our. Area OK so on your friends. Just every listener. And then you post something on FaceBook about Donald Trump and it gets very heated very quickly we're talking about guns. You would not want on the front page of your FaceBook. Profile. Georgia has posted he would month. And so my issue isn't like should we all be paranoid mind my issue really is just education. It is one of the fastest growing apps in the country. Oh it's like at one point four billion cite something in saint. But people need to note that the deep fault is sharing that information. And you'll listen I don't care it's mine neighbor of people now rightly that that's fine it's actually 64 of your closest neighborhoods. Which widens that. Circled things resting on next story out. Things have gotten nasty and there has also been then there is a lot of underlying. Racism. And end the app has said it's trying to deal with that. So one really knows what explain that would mean there's underlying racism once sentences an admiral and a line what are the pros is a woman who said. I saw a black woman over here yesterday blocking her dialogue. And I have never seen her Da. Vinci rides. Has there been any crime committed or reported in the neighborhood with a woman matching that description. We don't know likes I mean there really. So it next door because you think rivers it's really. It's really tens of thousands of people in your general vicinity. And I just think people should know. Especially those of you in professions that deal with. Angry. People from time to time. I would one another as a teacher. I mean just tap at the post your address rod for a whole know everyone. In the community to know because here's what's gonna happen and you an angry parent knocking on that door. An egg now yes. I'm telling you sky an and I had a girlfriend pose this makes me sad we used to have a fumble. And you could look anyone happen on you can opt out of the phone book. But that pump up your number in there dress. No way you guys and I pages. A bit. Think that is not what is your domestic violence victim what if your crime victim you do not want your address linked to your face on a web site. Where tens of thousands of people you know could either be angry about something you say or write or. Just are nosy and wanna look you. And as the difference between saying oh well that sick on the radio drives me crazy. And someone being crazy enough to crack address. But. When you're. In an argument with somebody over offense or some crap in your neighborhood yes and there are like this. This woman and then they click on your big picture is down the street and go Payer is an. I can tell her piece of my mind million DM yard. I'm not moan so next door has said and it's and it's you know. Suggestions. Or what what have you. To please take any disputes. And work them out privately asking this you know house social media shirts they're air and that laundry left and right on those sites should Johnson County. Take down the property value. Part of their web site. My guess taxpayer roles because that's where George Brett lives. Right I am not comfortable. With the idea for any of us. Listening on the way George Brett houses prism four point four million dollars kind chippy. I love shorts. This doesn't bother you at all doesn't. Merrill. Because if it's what was your 22 year old daughter will I mean obviously. Yes of course. That's my point. Should we have Johnson County take down the tax rolls. There's a difference between going up and looking at. At its tax Payer public information. And they know you and you deciding especially let's say year old life. Husband doesn't know you're on the next door there are more women on that the net. And putting your face and address out there and unbeknownst to you by the way. And someone being able to click on that and look at it based on something you've said to strangers on social media I think throw the media component. And it makes it work well let's say Sarah is 22 years old. Just graduated from KU she's at a bar haven't a couple of drinks with friends okay. The bartender. Says. You don't what 21 Thai security she flashes that. She's 22 OK fine. But always catches as her name Sarah parks of the catcher address. While she's bought a house me in only okay he goes home that night. He wants to do bad things to my daughter doesn't remember the address from driver's license maybe it's my house that's on her driver's license modern new house. He goes on and Google searches on the Johnson County website Sarah parks he gets or address goes over there and want to do bad things to. But what is the what would be the problem. If this app is set up the way it is with next torch is saying. We will verify or street name to make sure you are living in the neighborhood manipulating want to do we don't have to post your address publicly opposed to. If they if you want to post a comment policy it. I agree I don't know that in YM and beyond their neighborhoods so well because they're trying to keep it. You know in one like I wouldn't necessarily be on the lookout. For an elderly person who's lost in the next. But I will be on the lookout for an elderly person that's lost. Between a 119 and a 135. You know they're they're trying to make it to people germane to where OK I understand that's fine. Do people just walk on to these apps because there yes based on what I have seen. Add the so. Lou you're just sitting at home your report I think I am and we'll look on the next story yes see there's any old woman missing in my neighborhood. Added as a final loop when that you need to go. Is your life sucks I don't disagree. But if you don't think they're crazy people out there and look and in trolling on sites like that I just think they need to be honest and say FYI. If you didn't read the fine friend. You are agreeing when you sign up for this fastest growing happened in America when you are agreeing to share your. Informing OK but but part of that is on you. Why are you not lying about your address if you're so worried about people finding out exactly where you live. For example let's say that I lived at 123456. Emanate. Metcalf. I would not make it 9875432. America. What if your defense attorney. Or prosecutor think about it. I've gear I guarantee you people in those. Professions. Do you not realize. Their address is out there that. Wouldn't. You have to do is go to a government website. And you can find out where anybody lives moves that's different because these social media web sites tend to invite people some. Who are worded who are busy bodies who like to scroll. You about. Your grass or your daughter. Stood a fake address. Why do people why are people so on just. Question law and but when somebody in your signing up for something says what's her name Marty let you know I mean don't you fill what three email address an idol I hate. And you think I paranoid. I've 76779. Yeah I'd been bragging about my girlfriend was down fifty pounds. Think it's actually 52 plus my doctor. I keep shortchanging to pounce and she went in to see doctor take at the center for nutrition in leaflet. And what you idolized when it sounds like guided safety like Sudan we get a guy calling yesterday. During the day in and parts program who lost 100. Pounds with doctor taint in nine months he called in yesterday that is just a life changing. Amounts of weight to lose. Try it medically managed to wait cost you will love the program you'll love the staff the meal replacements the vitamins I look better I feel that when doctor takes in my life and I hope Ugoh.
