"This is weekend edition from NPR news. I'm Aisha Roscoe The Sri Lankan president and prime minister have both agreed to step down after intense demonstrations yesterday that saw thousands of people take to the streets in the capital Colombo. Both of their residences were stormed, and the prime minister's home was set on fire, at least 34 people were injured in scuffles with police. Protesters are calling for change as their flailing economy has left millions without access to fuel and food. Joining us now is minica, intra Kumar. She's a journalist based in Colombo. Welcome to the show. Hi, Shaw. Thank you very much. So you've been out there covering the protests. What have you been seeing? So it's the day it started for morning, but the momentum for the protest was building up for the last two weeks. People were calling out on social media to everyone together because despite mister running the continental becoming the prime minister, things have actually not been much of a progress. Yes, the dollar went down, but the Peter queues and there is no gas shipment oil shipment inside. So people are extremely frustrated. And of course, the cost of living also from the time that he took office has increased tribble. And so what is the scene like today? Are there protests still going on? Yes, yes, two people have occupied the president's secretariat as well as the president's House. They are indulging in every bit of luxury that the president has taken in from all these people's hard earned money. Yeah, I saw people in the pools and all of that stuff. Of course. Yeah. Well, now that both the president and the prime minister have agreed to step down, are there other demands from the protesters? Well, the demand right now is to see that they want a risk to happen. They want to see that they held accountable because this is not something that happened just overnight. This has been in progress for a very, very long time. And people are demanding their money back. And so how do the country get here? How did this economic crisis happen? This is complete mismanagement. So this is not something that happened 6 months ago. This has happened since 2000. Let me say 2019 and during COVID and the lockdown money was going out of the country because people were so occupied with protecting their safeguarding themselves from COVID-19 that they didn't know. So this was not something that happened 6 months ago. What happened two years ago is reflecting now. What do you think will happen in the coming days? Basically, what people who have analyzed the situation say that they run you should not resign as prime minister because they do want someone who knows the situation to be in power, right? And right now they are deciding who the president will be. There are some names given, but the thing is, the names that are given also we don't have we don't have faith, but you can't help it. This is something better than nothing, right? Because the other ministers who were given very prominent appointments also have this design. So there is a question mark for that also. So it's easy to resign, but finding proper replacements to take it forward is what is going to be a huge issue now. Minica andra Kumar is a journalist based in Colombo Sri Lanka. Thank you so very much. Thank you, I shall have yourself a good day. Or prices are starting to come down from record highs, but they're still well above the prices from last year. In the all rich state of Texas, that can be bad news or good news depending on who you are as NPR's weighed Goodwin reports from Dallas. It's three 45 in the Dallas afternoon and Kevin Madden, a veteran painter for Lockheed Martin is filling up his 2000 Honda at a QT gas station. I ask the slightly unfair question about what might be going on inside of him, emotionally. I look down at the price and as soon as I look down at the price, I get mad. At $4 and ten cents for a gallon of regular unleaded, many listers may well be thinking, what's he complaining about? But like many Texans, Madden drives plenty of miles every week. It used to take me about $40 to fill it up. Now it's almost $70. They're probably last about half a week. When I have budgets for everything else, now all of a sudden I have to have a bunch of the gas. As consumers pay higher amounts for a tank of gas, American oil companies are making amazing levels of profits. Companies like ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, et cetera, have been enjoying between 5 and $6.2 billion a quarter, with Russian supply band in the U.S., domestic production is stepping up, through April and May, there was speculation that prices could actually be headed toward $150 a barrel, but then came a plethora of anxious rumination about the possibility of world economic recession, and higher gasoline prices began to reduce consumption, so the market reacted. For example, in early June, West Texas intermediate crude was selling around a $120 a barrel, but at the start of this week that price had dropped into the ballpark of a $100 a barrel. On Friday the price recovered a bit as the week came to a close. On that note, let's move the compass and talk Texas production. The Permian Basin today is looked at as one of the most productive and prolific oil and gas basins in the world. Todd Staples is the

"I'm Aisha Roscoe in Washington and I melt the Chang in Los Angeles Today a defiant Russian president Vladimir Putin recognized the independence of two pro Russian territories in eastern Ukraine And he ordered Russian troops into those breakaway regions escalating the threat of war Now a war would be expensive for Russia a military invasion and occupation of Ukraine would cost Russia billions not to mention political costs and the further economic costs that would come with international sanctions And Pierre national security correspondent Greg myrie is here with more high Greg Hi Elsa Hi Okay so let's start with the military costs right now Exactly what sort of military costs is Russia looking at at this point Well this is already been a very expensive military build up keeping large numbers of troops in the field in the Russian winter for months but it's really just a small down payment compared to a large scale war and an open ended Russian occupation of Ukraine So if Russia does go that route and take over in Ukraine the Ukrainian army could easily morph into a guerrilla force the U.S. and NATO are arming Ukraine with rifles and ammo and anti tank weapons And we should really note Russia does have limited resources compared to say the U.S. the U.S. Military budget is at least 12 times larger The Pentagon burned through more money in January than Russia will spend in an entire year So I spoke to Angela stent a Russia expert at Georgetown university who's met many times with Vladimir Putin If there is a full fledged invasion then of course that's hugely expensive Most people believe that even with a 190,000 troops that might not be enough for a full scale invasion And there's certainly not enough troops for an occupation So that would require hundreds of thousands of troops more Okay well beyond the potential costs on the battlefield what price do you think Russia could pay on the political front Well we had a really good example this weekend at this annual Munich security conference usually the talk is about NATO lacking a clear mission in the U.S. complains that European countries need to pay more for defense But this year there was a very clear response of Russia is a threat Europe needs to be unified NATO needs to send more troops to its eastern Flank We saw immediate criticism today coming out of Europe after a Putin made these moves So Russia is already paying a political price in Europe And Angela stent says Putin is also likely to face blowback domestically Just a few months ago Putin published an article having Russians that Russians and Ukrainians are one people Now he's telling them or might be telling them you're going to go to war and fight your Ukrainian brothers and sisters There will be body bags That is not going to go down well in Russia Well speaking of domestic blowback I mean it seems pretty clear that Russia will face additional economic sanctions though we don't know exactly what form those sanctions might take Do you have a sense Greg of what kind of economic cost these sanctions could impose on Russia Well they're probably going to target the banking and financial sector but that's not the most important part of the Russian economy It's oil and gas and the world still needs this energy And therefore Russians energy sector may not be heavily sanctioned But this turmoil in Ukraine is boosting world oil prices It's making more money for Russia actually at least in the short term But the Russian economy will take a hit European countries will also suffer and the consequences will ripple across the world That is Ampere's Greg myrie thank you Greg My pleasure The entire auto industry is making a massive pivot Okay.

"And we have a whole new crew. Aisha roscoe and carrie johnson. Hello my friends. Hey there hey And obviously asia covers the white house carry covers the justice department and we are talking about voting rights and it has not been smooth sailing for the president and his administration as they have tried with allies in congress to pass voting rights protections. And then last week there was this ruling by the supreme court that dealt a blow another blow to the voting rights. Act so carry. Let's start there. What was that supreme court decision. And what does it mean sure. This was a ruling in a case involving two new laws in arizona that pose restrictions on certain kinds of voting. And the reason why it's important is that eight years ago. Tam and i usua- you know the supreme court basically gutted the heart of the nineteen sixty five voting rights act and so what was left for people to use to sue over a voting measures that seem to have a discriminatory purpose or effect was part of the law called section two but now the supreme court in a six to three decision along ideological lines has basically erected new roadblocks for plaintiffs who want to sue challenging ballot restrictions and also talking the supreme court majority did about the issue of election security and integrity basically saying that The desire by states to prevent election fraud and voter fraud which we know happens very seldom in a widespread way But that could be a legitimate basis. That courts would use to to evaluate some of these new restrictions so this is a big big hurdle for new cases coming on on board with the voting rights act so kerry does this mean that the voting rights act like. Does it have any teeth now. Is it basically toothless or does it have like one tooth what is going on with that. One little nub tam. You're both moms right. I would like in this to like the the the first two or three teeth in your mouth. Okay a little little little play. So so it's possible that some challenges to voting restrictions new voting restrictions filed using section to the only major surviving part of the voting rights. That could still survive but the supreme court majority led by justice. Samuel alito has made it a lot lot harder to challenge these things moving forward now. Didn't the court essentially say yes we we have made these changes or we've thrown out these parts but congress could fix this if congress wanted to well. Congress has to parties and they don't actually agree on what the problem is. No and and you have the white house. You have president biden facing a lot of pressure from civil rights groups from his base from other democratic lawmakers. Who are saying. This is an existential crisis because you have republican state legislatures that are trying or that are restricting voting in some ways make making changes to voting rules and they are saying that this needs to be dealt with but really the only way you can get significant change is through. Congress and congress is not cooperating. I mean. I think that. I still find remarkable about where things are with. This is that there was a time in the not so distant past when voting was sort of a non partisan issue it will you know secretary of state was not an office that people with political intentions really ran for was the office that nerds ran for states. And now it's become this very very much more political role. Not just political him. The justice department the deputy attorney general. His launched a task force to investigate threats against state election officials. That's how bad things have gotten in this country. We know that a lot of them are bailing out of their jobs. Because of all this pressure. They've been getting over the last few years and now the f. b. i. is paying special attention in these kinds of threats on a criminal basis. Wow yeah you know. A lot of this is because The former president donald trump has repeatedly lied about the last election saying that it was stolen from him. But really you have the justice department that can take action not just that criminal action. You know what the white house is saying. Is that not that. They're pushing the justice department. They're trying to thread this line because they don't want to say they're influencing the justice department but they're saying that they have Nominated people in had officials confirmed who are experts in civil rights and voting rights in. Who can look into these issues and file lawsuits where they feel necessary. They did file a lawsuit in georgia because of the supreme court ruling. That is going to have a difficult time but they can do that. The other thing they can do is try to get groups together to get the public on board and so i talked to cedric richmond. Who's one of the senior advisors at the white house and this is what he talked about the courts fight in the streets. Who's gonna fight. You know for fear voting. We're going to do that. But at the same time. We want our groups in community leaders to also take the bounden suspenders approach of educating people on how to deal with these new laws. But do they mean how do. I still vote meaningfully. So he's basically saying let the these groups also educate people on how they can still vote on because they're going to need people to vote if they're going to get more support in congress. There is this thing that's happening where it seems like the white house is relatively powerless to either get legislation through or otherwise affect this march of republican led states changing voting rules in a way that democrats worry. We'll make it harder for people to vote and and so they're talking about well the the white house the president is going to use the bully pulpit and it seems like part of that is simply making voting rights in issue in the election. Were making it. You know telling people your franchise is going to be taken away. Get angry get out there. Don't let that happen. Vote at the same time as he talks about actual education making sure that people know how to vote and how to work around these rules. But you know. I don't know that this is what they would have chosen. No no and i think that voting rights advocates. I think they what they're saying. Is they feel like the status. Quo is unacceptable. There like something has to get through congress and they also expect the white house to do more even if it's behind the scenes like they want them to use the pool pet. They're happy that The vice president Harris is now in charge of this usa point person on this but they want the president to put pressure on lawmakers to make sure this gets done one way or another all right. Well i feel like every third podcast ins with that thought so we keep a consistent. Let us take a quick break and when we get back it's time for can't let it go..

On International Women's Day, Biden Signs Gender Equity Measures
"Is marking the occasion as only a president can with more executive orders. His signature will set up a new White House counsel on gender policy. And roll back a controversial Trump administration rule that protected students accused of sexual assault. We're joined now by NPR, White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe and I shall want we start with this order on sexual violence in schools when we need to know. This order basically directs the Department of Education to look at our into conduct a review of all of its policies and regulations to make sure that an educational environment is free from discrimination on the basis of sex and also free from discrimination in the form of sexual harassment, including sexual violence. On discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. So basically, it's a review to make sure that all of his policies are aligned with this order. And as I understand it, it goes back to the former education secretary Betsy the boss. She and the Trump administration believed that people who were accused of sexual violence deserve more rights in an academic setting. And Democrats, of course, opposed that from the beginning. Does this order just revert the legal standard back to what it was during the Obama administration. So this executive order clearly seems aimed at undoing that policy from the Trump administration. But what it basically does is it directs Education Secretary McGill Cardona to suspend or revise any agency actions that are at odds with the new order from the White House. So it basically puts it in The education Secretaries court for him to look at the policies and to decide what to do. But it seems clearly aimed at eventually getting rid of that order from the Trump administration. Okay, more to come on that issue, I'm sure now another bite in order is establishing a White House Gender Policy Council. What will that do? Exactly? So this council will focus on ensuring equity for women and girls on diverticular Lee women and girls of color. This is a revamped version of former President Obama's White House counsel on women and girls. The name was changed to reflect that all genders can face discrimination, but it's basically a way of looking at equity when it comes to women. Well. President Biden, on
