Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised

"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.

Robots are getting personal during the pandemic

"The. The pandemic could seriously kick start living and working with robots from American public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm Ali would. This week on marketplace tech, we're reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic future. One of those innovations has been waiting in the wings for a long time robots. Robots can do jobs that are too dangerous for humans or just make life a little easier and even offer some friendship during lockdown. A Howard is a robot assist and professor at Georgia Tech. She says, the pandemic has been a push for robotics of all types. One of the things if you think about a human and peoples relationship to robotics, it's been kind of a love hate relationship like most people, they might buy a Roomba, for example, but a lot of like I'm not. I'm not doing that like robots please now. But what we've seen now is Is. There's this adoption of robots in the home in the workplace in hospitals and clinics because it fulfills a need that cannot be filled by people anymore the it seems like there are lots of different aspects to this, and it's and some of it is you know maybe some have their cleaning lady come and and they just need help 'cause we're cooking and home all the time can be a mess, but there's also. Robots in the context of medicine and robots in the context of companionship. Talk a little bit about these various roles that were seeing become more necessary. Yes. So I would categorize them into bucket. So there's the set of robots that are being used for addressing issues with pandemic. So it's robots are being used in hospitals and in stores to clean and disinfect. So that's that's a needed attribute that robots are able to feel. But then there's also the the robots for the home environment that provide us a little bit of the social interaction and is because there are robots, we design them that put in us and understand humans, and so they can be emotional, they can be reactive and because we are are. Not able to interact with those outside of our home as much of the robot, it's it's a replacement, is not the best replacement, but it's gives us a little bit of humanity that we can touch with and interact with, and so there's an increase in these types of devices and development and products. As you kind of look ahead at the next say, six to eighteen months. What do you think is going to happen in this field? How faster companies can remove and pivot and adopt? And I would say exponentially except that you know exponential is based on what the first number is, but I would say exponentially with all the caveats that go with that and it's only because we still need to live, right. We still need to function. We still have human needs and human desires, and we still want to go to work when we can and. Do that safely given that we can't physically do a lot of these things. And robots and fills space. and. So that's in at least in the near future, which is again at least a year based on all the reports. That means it's going to accelerate, and then once we're on the other side of Covid it, we would have become accustom. To adoption become accustomed to robots in the I, and so I think it will become the new norm.

Sales of thermal imaging cameras 'that can spot fevers' soar

"Magical fever spotting cameras. You say we have questions from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. This week on marketplace tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic future part of that future will eventually involve going back to work but we're still working on how to do that. Safely. Some companies have spent tens of thousands of dollars on thermal cameras, which can supposedly spot someone with an elevated temperature from a distance. Do they work or is this just a form of health? Security Theater? Meghan mcardle Carino covers workplace culture for marketplace. I always think about kind of like Predator vision. When we talk about thermal cameras, you know this kind of allows for a big industrial camera that does automated instant temperature taking by mapping infrared radiation from people's skins with a lot faster than having a person standing out there you know with one of those temperature guns taking everyone's temperature but I understand that it's not as good as Predator vision. You know there's a question of accuracy with just how well the devices work. They can be influenced by lots of different things. They take the temperature of the skin on the face cold or hot weather that can affect the temperature of one skin. But the FDA has allowed these devices to be marketed on a temporary basis without any kind of verification of their medical. Veracity. So the FDA does suggest that if someone is determined to have a temperature with one of these devices that they get some other kinds of secondary verification, you know using an internal temperature taker, you know your just your regular thermometer, but there's really nothing requiring these workplaces to do. So what other concerns are there around sort of scanning workers constantly in this way? The fact that these devices generally also come with facial recognition software as part of the deal, you know this is something where you know these systems could kind of become part of a greater surveillance infrastructure that groups like the ACLU are up in arms about having these installed at, say all airports and hospitals and all kinds of businesses all over the place. So if this thermal scanner says that you're sick and you are sent home, you can't come to work. Will you still be compensated for that time? Well, that is. A bit of a question mark. The Cares Act did provide for two weeks of paid sick leave but it excluded a lot of people were talking about gig workers. We're talking about people who work for companies with more than five hundred employees or less than fifty employees. So there are a lot of workers who may get sent home and not be able to collect any pay.

"Now. I know that you do. We do we know that you do a of work for with marchforbabies? Can you tell us a little bit about marchforbabies and your work that you do with them I started working with the march of dimes when I was very young and I used to visit a Nikki's and stuff and many years ago when I was doing fresh prince. My mom really liked the march of dimes always supported them, and so you know when they came to us she she was like this is a good deal. Good 'cause I had amazing experiences Now again, I'm working with them on the celebrity advocate council. Everything changed once. On and I joined that council right before covid started So it's become. been involved in Webinars and you know I tried to get information out there I. The thing that I've become really interested in because of actually my first experience which wasn't. The best. To say the least I ended up having an emergency C. section. Things were done at the hospital that were you know when I when I talk to people now and I talked to experts as I've become more interested in in this. Maternal health care. If like their eyes go wide, their mouths are like that's not I've never heard that I've never heard of that. But all these people like putting their forearms in my belly like. Just was really crazy. It was really crazy and at a hospital you'd. Was it like affiliated at was just because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time or you think it was like a, it's a hospital that has a very, very high like extraordinarily high C. section rate. And a you know a good the nurses were great. It's a well, it's a great a good, very good hospital, excellent hospital but. Their maternity ward, they're they're known for. C.. Sections it's actually a nickname that they're giving amongst the maternal health community that I didn't know at the time but I, started to do my own kind of legwork and. Going to birth summits and learning about the black maternal health crisis You know this this is the one-sixth that people talk about all the time. But black women are three times more likely to die in childbirth than white women and we have a maternal health care crisis in the United States period because and it really is like the more you talk about in the more you get into the wise. It really is because we have a structurally like Patriarch Patriarchal System a structurally racist system and it has to biases it has to do with so many things. So so I started really getting into that work in. March of dimes asked me to be on their council just to help get information out there. Now with Cova, you don't really getting people I have. One friend just gave birth but I've had three pregnant friends. One is about to give birth in. Who are pregnant and caring for themselves and being cared for during all of this, and there's a lot to like. There's there's a lot to think about in and fight for Fisher. I'm learning a lot more now I I. was really taken aback by adding we've heard how much we lag behind other western and and modern societies that are that are take really good care of women in childbirth and how much the US has really lagged behind in many ways both in terms of like honoring the mother's wishes and in terms of really like protecting. The protecting the integrity of like exploring those options as opposed to going to the most expeditious potentially like you know the the the least room for unpredictable outcomes but also a predictable outcome that you don't necessarily want. Those interventions lead to a lot of problems that wouldn't probably happened if those interventions weren't they're totally. So I'm so curious because you I'm so sorry that you went through a, you know a a difficult first birth because I I know that also a never having been through any birth before you probably at some point thought like did I do something wrong like with is supposed to have said this at the other like You know they're and and I'm I'm birth is a beautiful experience and it also even its best cases is a holy like body opening wrenching experience too. So you clearly have your beautiful sat on the other side and that's really that's really the most important piece.

Viruses dont discriminate, but health care often does

"Tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, and some that might create even more inequality. A paper published in June. In the new, England Journal of Medicine, looked at how artificial intelligence is used to determine treatments and care. It found that many of the algorithms used in medicine use race as a variable. For example, many doctors use algorithms to estimate how well a patient's kidneys are functioning, because that's hard to test directly. Those algorithms use several factors including race to make these guesses Leo Eisenstein is a position and why you and Bellevue hospitals and one of the authors of the paper. We're seeing differences in outcomes not because. People who are black, have essentially different bodies, but their experience of being black in this country is essentially different, but encoded in the world of healthcare is the idea that black and brown bodies are different and as a result there's an excuse for why there are inequalities of health in the notion that these are produced naturally by racial differences Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who wrote a book about race in science and medicine, people will say black race predicts for some bad outcome when it's actually structural racism that's operating to put people in A. A vulnerable position where they are at risk Roberts talks about one study that examined why Black Women in Chicago started dying from breast cancer at a much higher rate than white women. Beginning in the nineteen ninety S, researchers concluded it was not because black women's health got worse. It was because there had been huge advances in breast, cancer, detection and treatment over those twenty years, and the best machines are located in private hospitals where more advantage people go Robert said that history makes her deeply worried about the distribution of life saving technology to treat or prevent covid nineteen. There are ways in which racism is built into the. He's rationing guidelines. which are based on a premise that scarce resources shouldn't be wasted on someone who might die at the hospital now because we live in a society that is structured by racism. This tool is systematically going to discriminate against black patients because they have already experienced a society that is set up in a way to produce lower life expectancy for them. Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. And now for some related links, there's more reading about systemic bias and medical treatment at our website marketplace. Tech Dot Org. The nonprofit science and Tech magazine dark has a long piece out this week. About how systemic bias is probably leading to disproportionately higher death rates among black and Brown people in the US, not just because of CO morbidity is associated with poverty or increased exposure to pollution say, but because researchers found that black and indigenous people in particular may also beginning turned away from hospitals or denied testing until it's too late. Yesterday we talked about vaccine innovations also Monday one of the leading. Vaccine Research Companies Madeira announced that it will start one of the biggest vaccine trial in the world, enrolling some thirty thousand people to test out its Kobe vaccine candidate.

Sierra Club Denounces Founder John Muir For Racism

"A historic icon of the American environmental. Movement is in the spotlight John Muir founded the Sierra Club in eighteen, ninety two in San Francisco. The group's current leaders says the ongoing civil rights protests, leading to the dismantling of confederate monuments is causing the Sierra Club to reexamine its own racist history NPR's Kirk. Siegler reports. The group is pledging to remove some of its own John Maher statues. John Muir has long been revered by environmentalists. The California naturalists Biblical love. Wild places led to a legacy of federal wilderness protections, including Yosemite National Park, but mirror was also well known for making derogatory comments about blacks and native people and the modern conservation movement has wrestled for years with these transgressions in a letter to the Sierra clubs members today, current Director Michael Brune said this moment. Moment is a time to reexamine. The clubs own substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy. Bruins says the group will reconsider the views of some of its founders that lead to the modern movement being so white today when it comes to John Muir, we're looking to advance the conversation about yours legacy to look at him in a more comprehensive and inclusive way. That acknowledges his limitations. Limitations and shortcomings, the Sierra Club says it's considering removing some monuments to its founders. Brune is also pledging that the group will reorganize to ensure that a majority of its leadership is comprised of people of Color, and he hopes to spend five million dollars on diversifying their staff and training. The announcement was welcomed by Mustafa Santiago Ali of the National Wildlife Federation. You know it's long overdue. Overdue we have to address the sins of the past. He's one of the few people of Color who's actually in a leadership position in a major environmental group that major sin of the past, many of those folks felt that those spaces those natural spaces, those sacred spaces where meant for white men Ali says the modern day environmental movements lack of diversity in its writ large. Of Communities of color has had major consequences, one example, industrial facilities are often put in underserved neighborhoods and pollution from them as drifting into national parks like those John Muir fought to establish.

How To Increase Revenue Using Data

Rob Combines his expertise data science with proven sales and marketing strategies to help establish middle market companies quickly generate new revenue by improving the way they gather and utilize data. Thanks so much for joining me today. Rob I am grateful to be here. Thank you Dan. Absolutely an I wanNA just start at laying a foundation and ask you to sign. Out what data mining is and then how can transform a business? Sure I think that data mining can sound really scary at first. So there's there's definitely a crawl walk. Run approach to data mining. It could be as simple as collecting different data points that you have throughout your organization already in drawing some inferences, and then, of course it could scale all the way up to machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and all these buzzwords that you hear, but the main thing that we we espouse is that data mining can start at the basics, and you can get lots of valuable pieces of information. Information simple pieces of information that you can take action on grow your business as a result, and then it gets gets kind of addicting, and then you WanNa. Get up into to the you know the more advanced things, but I think sometimes data-mining is is scary. Sometimes it sounds too nerdy or whatever, but it's really. It's really a friend to any sort of executive who wants to grow their business. That's interesting. Okay, because it because it does steal sort of. Big and expensive. So Where where is the data? That companies are mining. There's a lot more data that you have that. You don't realize you have. In fact, studies have shown that seventy to seventy five percent of data never gets touched by an organization, but. At the simplest level you have, presumably you have sales, so you have a lot of data around who who? Your customers are what they're buying when they're buying it how they're buying it. So, that's usually data that people don't think about when it comes to mining south. You also have any sort of digital presence status, so web traffic web events. Your email marketing your social platforms. There's lots of data there, and that can really be a lot, but there's also some basic stuff that that is helpful and Steering Your Business. And the third type of data that you can mind is is primary research meaning going out, and just talking surveying your customers, and sometimes that's the most most impactful data. To to mine, and it's not too time consuming or expensive to go out and actually Jakulan. Get started with tomorrow. That's really interesting. I don't know. If people would think about. Surveying clients and data mining as the same thing. If that's. SORTA surprised me when he said it. Yeah, yeah and I think it it It goes back to the point that there's different degrees of data, mining and guy you know when when you you launch that first survey, and you can slice and dice, the results and gets a meaningful ways to treat different types of customers in different ways It's GonNa Open Your eyes to some of the more advanced ways of of data mining. Now talking some about. Old Data. and. What You know a company can do with it. So. Presumably, let's just focus on on one of those three types of data. Let's focus on transactional data or sales, history data and chances. Are you have the staff from Ali back to the inception of your company now? Maybe it's different formats different databases, but but it exists. So you can do some basic things right off the bat and you'll need a statistician, but the the computational power has come a long way and the cost of come way down, so it's not as expensive as it used to be, but you can look at that data for patterns such as. If customer bought product. X.. How likely are they to to buy product Y. or Z. Sort of we all? We're all familiar with with Amazon you see at the bottom of the cage. Customers. Who bought this also bought that? You can, you can look at your data and figure out what those patterns look like in that helps your your sales, efforts or your marketing, a efforts in terms of saying hey, let's go to all the people who bought X.. We see they're likely to buy Y. let's try to try to get them to purchase why. The other thing you can do with your your historical sales data is segment your customers? And you'll probably find that. Not all customers are created equal when it comes to profitability, and if if you can build a if bill, the grid or a map, and it can imagine hey, these. Our most profitable customers what are they have in common and these-these customers are at least profitable, and whether they have common, and usually. When we work with companies to do that analysis, we find that they're spending the same amount of marketing dollars, the same amount of sales effort going after the low value customers as they are after the high value customers. So right there. There's an opportunity for you to say. Hey, wait a minute. Why are we? Giving the same amount of effort to the to the low value customers, we should be trying to drive them to self service, or find some lower cost, a survey for them, and we should be doubling down on our high value types of customers, because that's really where we're going to be able to opportunities to grow both our revenues and our profits.

How is bias built into algorithms? Garbage in, garbage out.

"Does bias get built in facial recognition algorithms garbage in garbage out. From American public media. This is marketplace. I'm Ali would. In facial recognition and AI. Development computers are trained on massive sets of data. Millions of pictures gathered from all over the web. There are only a few publicly available data sets, and lots of organizations use them, and they are problematic vinay. Prabhu is chief scientist at the start up unify he and obey Babar honey. At University, College Dublin published a paper recently, examining these academic data sets. Most of the pictures are gathered without consent. People can be identified in them.

Maybe it's not the data. That's the problem. Maybe it's the whole field. Here's name Provo, the community has historically prior of basically put suing problems which are ethically dubious.

The days of unlimited pandemic internet are over

"The days of pandemic related unlimited Internet access are apparently over. From American public media, this is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. We've been looking on our show lately. At how amidst this pandemic? The Internet is everything access and cost our problems for many people, but what about data lots of broadband providers limit how much data users can use each month go over, and there are extra fees some lifted these caps at the start of the pandemic, but as of July first comcast at and T. and T. mobile have brought back some of their data caps Tom Merritt host. The Daily Tech News Show podcast I asked him. What was the argument for data caps? If you ask the marketing departments of ISP's. They'll tell you that data caps make it a fair playing ground for everyone so that all the bits don't get used up by really really greedy people and there is a very slight truth that if a lot of people were using a lot of the Internet at the same time, it can cause some congestion, but it's not like there's a limited amount of bits the. The real justification is that they want ways to price things to encourage people to want to pay more and data caps are a way that people can understand. Oh, if I use more data I, pay more okay. I get it on some level. I can see that being a slightly reasonable argument like there is no other service. Where if you use more, you don't pay more right, or is this true lease artificial? I think the disconnect. Because even though the government assures us, it's not a utility. People think of the Internet is a utility. The the difference comes in the justification. If as just said yeah, we're just like that. I think fewer people would have an issue, but the ISP trying to argue that they're fighting congestion just really doesn't hold water. When you do examinations of congestion, they generally happen at peak use times whether there are data caps are not data kept supply all day long, so they don't really. Encourage people not to use data at the times were congestion might be caused and they don't. It sounds like you're also saying they don't improve service for everyone. The congestion still occurs. It's just that some people have to pay correct. Yeah, that that that prime time congestion anybody especially on cable ISP has run into it when everybody gets home specially at a time when everybody is home and fires up there video APPs data caps. Don't matter data caps. Don't keep people from. From doing things at the same time they keep people from using their data at other times. When congestion is less likely to occur, we're also at a time. When the pandemic is not over, and in fact, people need arguably unfettered. Internet access more than ever. Is this just bad timing I? Think probably what's happening is the companies are feeling a bottom line pinch as well and all of their business models are based on charging. People for more data. Use so giving away. Service without a data cap means there's less reason for somebody to upgrade to a larger package if that's how their business is created. If your ISP is built on this, you're making less money at a time. When the economy's bad, probably more people are canceling service, and you're looking for ways to bring in that money, so if they can quietly just let the data caps kick back in then that might help them whether the storm. We should say that at least you know. Comcast's CAP is one point two terabytes, which is a lot right. What would you have to do as a household to hit that cap? I don't have numbers. At the ready but you have to have a lot of people downloading A lot of things were streaming. A lot of you know high definition. Four K. video and honestly data caps. It's always in the best interests of ISP's to have data caps Behi- enough that they only affect a certain number of people. You want them to be high. Because you don't want to have people suddenly decide will. This is unusable right and you don't want to have public backlash saying I keep running into this data cap I can't even use it to watch Netflix. Et Cetera, because he is, he's no that that people are using their internet to to watch streaming video to do high bandwidth applications so you WanNa? Keep it just high. High enough that you get the users that might be willing to pay to to pay for that. It also does have some uses in making it easier to go after the folks who do abuse the network and and run things on the network that it's not designed to do. like massive bitor and operations or or or cryptocurrency stuff without having to define them it makes it easier for enforcement, so so those two things are probably what's driving this and keeping folks happy means that that data cap needs to apply only to a minority of your customers.

Police Body Cam Footage Is Being Used For Surveillance, Activists Say

"So there are big differences in the police reform bills that Republicans and Democrats are pushing in Congress. One thing they do share in common is more money for local police departments that promised to use body worn cameras. But some activists say that police departments are inappropriately using these cameras for surveillance rather than accountability purposes. Member station. Cage's easy in Phoenix. Heather van Block, Lind reports. Cleveland Ali is an advocate for indigenous sacred sites and a self described anarchist and peaceful protester. But police and Flagstaff didn't agree at an event a couple of years ago into 1018 the same day that the city of Flagstaff formally announced there Indigenous Peoples Day celebration, which actually has been contentious for years. Myself on DH. 40 people rallied in downtown Flagstaff. The rally lasted a few hours, with protesters marching through downtown, holding signs and chanting. Police walked alongside keeping roadways clear for traffic. Everybody went home. There were no arrests until three weeks after the event when police brought in Manali in about 10 others on charges of obstructing the public thoroughfare. Based on footage from body camps. Sonali says police actions against his group are not about public safety, but politically motivated. We're fighting on the grounds that this is an act of state repression, basically that you know they're trying to chill descent. Undermined ascent and criminalize it. Dave Moss with the Electronic Frontier Foundation says. Police warned body cams have turned law enforcement into a surveillance network. Police departments are making decisions about surveillance technology at parties and hotel rooms in closed door meetings with salespeople with marketers from tech companies who are trying to tell them about all the miracles of the technology, but not telling them about any of the risks. And we need a process where the public is engaged, elected representative. They're engaged and it's not just a sales situation. He says. Police should not record footage during First Amendment activities like journalists at work or during a religious practice or any and all protests. Ultimately, if we're trying to address police accountability if we're trying to address racism, Layering on surveillance is not going to help that. It's going to exacerbate it. But when Seattle police said they turned off their body cams during so called First Amendment events, protesters there accused them of trying to hide evidence of excessive force or abuse. It's not a new debate. Concerns about how Bodycam footage can and should be used are as old as the cameras themselves. Some police say surveillance cuts both ways. Officers can have bodycam footage is used as evidence against them, and just like video can lead to officers being arrested or dismissed for bad behavior. It can also exonerate them. Right now. Policies on body camera use very widely. There's no federal standard bills from both parties currently before Congress can't mandate, local police departments use body cameras. But only say they must if they use new federal funds to buy the

The technology behind the discovery of a new blue hue

"The It is feeling an open sky and ocean and chemistry today geeking out about the color blue. From American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. So it turns out. It's very rare to discover new color pigments, an oregon chemist, a major breakthrough in the science of color. A decade ago, he discovered the I knew blue pigments in more than two hundred years, and just about a month ago, that pigment was cleared for use in commercial products that as it happens, are actually more energy efficient as paint and surface colorings, and now that same chemist is pushing color science forward again. Oregon public broadcasting just burns reports. Matsu Superman is a scientist versed in serendipity. The happy chance occurrence the lottery of the amazing, many of the importance, scientific discoveries come by accident. Clearly a pot of boiling science serendipity was in play a decade ago when his Oregon State University lab discovered the new pigment which would be named union men blue. He was looking for new materials to use an electronics, but what came out of the furnace was something else entirely I couldn't believe it. I was shocked because the samples Gimmel, so blue paints made with Yin and blue or highly heat reflective in the formula has been licensed for use. Since that Discovery Mayan has focused on the chemistry of color. He and Brett dual who just got his PhD started experimenting with a mineral called Hip night, which is mostly found in meteorites, and they tried adding a little bit of cobalt to make another blue pigment. We didn't expect it to be as intense as it was. The formula for cobalt blue made without hip night was discovered about two hundred years ago, but paint made with the pigment comes with health warnings because it can be toxic, this new color could be less toxic because it uses a fraction of the cobalt. Cobalt was so low. Giving off the same color essentially. It was a little surprised moment followed by an a Ha moment like an hour or so later dual says materials are also cheaper by a six, but it's still too early to know. If night blue will catch on with manufacturers, the labs discovery is only a few months. Old David Waller is with the Color Pigments Manufacturers Association, representing. That produce colors for paints, coatings and plastics. He says the adoption of new pigments can take years certainly room. To add something new because some older technologies have been phased out regardless of hip night, Blues Future Ma Superman Ian is continuing his search for color every day. Walk into this chemistry building. I don't know what I'm going to discover. I have some ideas I have some goals, but once you enter the lab. Put things together. You don't know what's going to be. This is the exciting part what we do and the next big color challenge ahead. We'll be red.

U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 11.1% in June

"The president wasted no time heading to the cameras to the record jobs gain in June. There's not been anything like this record setting shattering all expectations, our economy is roaring back. It's coming back extremely strong. These are all historic numbers. A record never had a number like that an all time high think of that that's the largest increase in the history of our country. That's a tremendous number a phenomenal number so these are numbers that are not numbers. Of, the presidents would have. This has been a tremendous success. We've done an incredible job we've done a historic thing likes of which nobody has ever seen before in my opinion. Donald? Trump got to use all the superlatives today talking about the job number, but it's important to look deeper into those numbers. CNBC points out one big contributor to the decline in the jobless rate was those returning to work from temporary layoffs? This comes as a new report from the Congressional Budget Office that says the unemployment rate is expected to stay above pre pandemic levels through. Through the end of twenty thirty worth US more, we welcome to the broadcast policeman senior economics reporter with our sister network CNBC. In an old friend of Mine Steve. Great to see you. Thank you for being with us. I mean it kind of was humor listening to the president as I said us all the superlatives, because there's a big piece of context here these are. These are jobs in many cases that people were not working at. As opposed to the creation of new jobs. These aren't jobs created and what the president has missing. There is the historic job losses that happened just a couple of months ago. That were multiples of the jobs that have been brought back in fact alley. I think the best way to think about this. As it was really a bittersweet number, the president was right. It was several times. It was just about double the expectation for point million. It was indeed a record, but let's just do the math. We've lost twenty two million jobs since the corona virus hit the US economy. We brought back seven. Seven and a half million, so everybody can do the math at home. That's fourteen and a half. Million jobs still not return. We brought back about a third. It's a bit quicker, but the other bittersweet part about this thing Ali is that with these renewed shutdowns? You have two things going on. You could have businesses that have shut down and won't we open now? Because of these new infections, but you have businesses that didn't even close before because those places were not affected by the virus, and those workers unfortunately could join the ranks of the unemployed. Let's talk about the more important thing that people like you. And I think about, and that is structurally what has happened to the job market? How much has been destroyed? That won't come back when we return to some version of normal the the the the congressional. Budget Office talks about not getting back to these particularly low unemployment rates that we were at before coronavirus until twenty thirty. That seems uniquely pessimistic, a lot of people talking about two to three to four years. How what does that look like long term return to normal? The best forecast I've seen have been my two or three years. I think that the CBO is extremely pessimistic. But we're looking for Ali is something that economists are now calling scarring in other words we've we had a lot of people. Go on temporarily. A lot will come back, but for some of these places the business may not be there anymore. The job may not be there anymore. On the plus side, there may be new jobs if people continue to get more stuff online rather than in retail stores, but. But some of those retail stores they may never reopened some of the restaurants. They can't survive at fifty percent capacity until we go back to one hundred percents of there's going to be scarring the economy. The extent of which I think the CBO may be too pessimistic, but the idea that we're going back to the way. It was a couple months ago. In short, order is almost certainly to optimistic. Stevens. I know it's something you think about it. Because I know you talked about it a lot of CNBC. How do you reconcile the record stock market performance? We're in very strong territory of Martian popped into earth and looked at the stock market. They'd say all our problems are over. Well it's something that you know. If I had another eyebrow I'd raise that up, but and if I could raise them higher than my forehead. I would do that, too. It's a curious thing to watch. There is an awful lot of the liquidity from the Federal Reserve. In the system. Interest rates are very low. If you're looking to have a return on your money, you can't do it in the charter market. You've gotta go into stocks I think that's one thing. I think there's a belief among some among many investors right now that the economy will return something normal in short order in a six month or one year timeframe. So I think those two things kind of combine the other thing Ali is if you look certain stocks have done very well and pushed up these indices, but some of the stocks and some of the industries that we've been talking about. Have not done well ahead of not come back, so so the market is correctly I. think discounting that and this changed economy that we're gonNA half example with the airline. Airline, so it is curious to watch this market think that things are going to get better as quickly as I think. The market's a little bit optimistic when it comes to discounting the uncertainty of this virus, and as you know Ali, the Fed has been all over this idea saying, wait a second. We don't know if this thing's GonNa come back and I think they've been proven right on that score.

You don't get points for that. But you're right. He's channeling so much of what's happening in America through boxing, which is a specific thing. Yeah. And it's this thing, as you know, as you sort of said, like, I don't know anything about sports, but there are the people who like crossover into just like the general culture. I have to know about that. And like capture Nick is someone who I only know is a political figure course I had never heard his name as an athlete before. Right. If LeBron James was taking the same stands that capper Nick took. Then, then that would have the sort of import of Muhammad. Ali, right. Right. But the fact that Mohammed Ali is someone where like I as a child who hated sports in this time period, still would have probably liked watching this guy on TV do interviews, you know. I would have bought a fistful of fries. It's just more exciting. But I don't like you see I find it really boring boring. I'm not watch it, it seems to much Rhonda Rowzee Ronda Rousey was like the only I have been personally invested in and I would watch her fucking fights and one of the things I liked about them that they were always short, that I knew, I wouldn't have to gauge with it for too long. Her whole thing was that she would not, you info second, go to the bar and watch the five warfighter and be Kuan just gonna keep talking to people, and then rows you get on be so locked in for, like three minutes. And I'd be like this is the greatest thing I've ever seen. But then it was depressing. When she liked started, you know, slipping it was, it was like fluid loss, and that was that, right? She was like in the never ever got back yet. Right. Who? New. Okay. Who's at the door? Oh my God. It's our old friend, the cineast Cal. Kim. My popular demand. Yeah. People wins the silliest. It's a count that appreciates real soon among does it like curated streaming services that show exceptional films from around the globe. Previously only this Cal likes put the microphone up to it. Oh, there kind of building up steam there. So this probably knows that with movie, every film that appears on the streaming services hand selected.
