What's Trending - September 6

This is really gross so let's get right into it. But if you have a flight coming up in the next couple of days or the next couple of weeks. Maybe you have a flight scheduled in the next couple of months. It's not the airplane we're talking, we're talking the airport. Maybe you found the bathrooms to be dirty. But according to a recent study it found that airport security bin, before you go into TSA you know what I'm talking about, when you put your stuff through the screener? They're a hot bed for germs that can cause illnesses such as the flu and the common cold. Researchers at the University of Nottingham in England and the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare collected samples from frequently touched surfaces in the Helsinki airport in Finland in 2015 and 2016. Half of the security checks point trays tested positive for germs that could make us ill. That includes the Influenza A and the rhinovirus. None of these germs by the way are found on the toilet so either they're doing something that we're not or when it comes to sanitizing their bathrooms but I'm still grossed out. I'm like the guy who brings the airplane and airport survival kit. I got my GermX, I basically go through Target and i buy every small sample item and waste all my money but I feel better when I get into the airport. We're talking about this on Facebook this morning, what is your travel ritual? If you'd like to chime in and add that to the list as I go through the day I love to read your comments and respond back to you just search MIX 105.1. Harley Davidson by the way is going to be opening a satellite facility in Northern California in Silicon Valley in order to support its future product portfolio which includes electric motorcycles. Harley Davidson also making an announcement, they're going to be working with Ford Motor company to have a Harley inspired F-150 which I think it kind of fun. Glass Nickel Pizza in Sun Prairie is going to be reopening in a new location after the explosion. It will be reopening in early October, so good to see the team at Glass Nickel getting things back in order after a pretty crazy event. What a summer it's been, right? We've had flooding, we've had that explosion we've had all sorts of crazy stuff. We just need to tone it down a bit!
