"And now alaska's only one hour different. What do people there think of it. Is it more or less coming in in different ways. I think it's i think they like being in like being closer to the united states just just because of commerce but what it means is that far western alaska is all on this alaska time zone and the people that are way way out in the aleutian islands. It's the it's the coolant of the weaker problem. Yeah i mean they're on the same time zone as as people in the far far eastern. They're they're practically in russia and they're observing time. That's pretty you know. Only one hour offer bend oregon or something so if you look at the if you look at mountain time up in canada and then you see like pacific time alaska time. There's a whole time zone. That's used in the north pacific or used used in in samoa or whatnot. The doesn't even exist. It goes around. Alaska there. Two time. Zones that gore round alaska. Just avoid it. Yeah they used to cut through it. So it's it's kinda crazy but but it's still is weird to me to think. I used to have to make that calculation until i was in high school and then all of a sudden seattle was two hours closer than it had ever been before. I still don't i kind of don't like it. Well we're probably speaking too far future listeners. Who are Quite sensibly going by the progression of the sun across the heavens and their own conscience and Maybe maybe we can invent standardized time for them. Maybe we could go back to like continuous time. So that each person. Even if i move twenty five feet to the west of you i would be on a slightly different time because we all would carry atomic clock th century. We're used to the idea that time is actually relative that it's constancy is a pretty much an illusion. I'm sure the future listeners are well aware so they won't mind that until the until you're you're bozo from hungary shows up and tells them all they're doing wrong god that guy and that concludes allegheny time entries zero three two dot mt two four three six certificate number one three eight one eight in the omnibus shootings. We have no idea how long our civilization survives. How could we. You'd be asking a lot of good. I mean we would need a different kind of timekeeper. Wins we can. It's true and we need crazy foreknowledge. I mean it's mid october as we record this. And i don't even know if america can exist in three weeks much less than the meteor hits. Isn't that fascinating that here. We are recording. Show everyone listening to this show knows the outcome of a thing that we here on this side of the time bubble even though we know time is a flat circle speaking to twenty twenty one right now by the way we're speaking to people that are living at the earliest senior year by the way and are they living on the other side of the inauguration. Presuming it happens so pre-inauguration so really you could be living in a completely anarchic time. The tanks have come into your city or town but in the unlikely event that america survives and and we are also talking to kiwis and ozzie's and and lime disease and Because we don't see crowds all your all your affectionate national terms come from world war one. That's right hey what's up. What's up golf. So anyway you don't you presumably fain as though you don't care about the american election but of course everyone in the world is watching because america's the greatest country in history.

"That doesn't help standardize that across the nation and and it helps so passengers are no longer confused because presumably most of their travel is confined to one railway system. And if you think about travel in the united states before the before the westward expansion and even after if you get on a train to go on a great adventure you go east west but if you're on a train to do business in the united states you're going north south for the most part. At least until the yeah the solar variations or not impractical. Right i mean the eastern time zone border is indiana kentucky It crosses kentucky and tennessee and then hugs the border between georgia alabama. Everything east of there is the same time zone now. What have been in eighteen ninety in the early late eighteen hundreds. Well one problem is that when the first time zones are drawn because the stations tend to be the next of these of these times. The borders actually connect stations. Unfortunately that means you're dividing cities in half. Oh so that would not work for a that works for a railway standard but does not work for universal standard. The thing that makes everyone want to actually get down to the minute and get together on this of all things. Scientists in eighteen seventy four are trying to study in aurora borealis and all the observations that are pouring into the observatory's would be super useful if they could be synchronized and they cannot because the guy in maine saw the best display it to eleven whereas the guy in portsmouth new hampshire saw the best display at to six. And there's really no way to tell if that was the same time or not. And so that's the thing that makes people think you know what a scientific age requires correctness down to the minute or even second to make scientists think that a ps a little but they have a lot more power than they used to your right that the normal people do not care about. Observations of the northern lights there was there was a new york times writer though. That was like it. The death of all cities are burning. And so that becomes the inciting event that gets gets these hypothetical schemes of making something like allegheny time nationwide really gets them to catch on and on november eighteenth. Eighteen eighty three We have the day what's called the day of to nunes in which local stations in which local time in railway time finely become the same thing you know. Towns are allowed to observe their normal noon. But then they're going to get told by the telegraph win. The allegheny observatory dictates noon. And then you're going to switch over forever and then notes noon forever. Yeah no more two minute hands on your clock no more while the trains run on this time but you know businesses local businesses. Run on this time. Everybody's going to be the same. You've still got the borders going along the lines connecting train stations. Which is weird. Wait a minute but everybody's on the same hour wait a minute. Is this where we get. The term old timer. It is an old timer is is somebody that didn't observe the new noon and keeps their clock on weird. You know like central saint louis time. I'm not convinced you might be timer. Come on it's gotta be it. The funny thing is not all the cities are into this all the big train term and i have to do it but like detroit i guess by virtue of being tucked away up there is able to hold out until one thousand nine hundred and detroit ignores the new growing convention for four time zones in america and just keeps its own is weird because he told nineteen hundred upper peninsula of michigan which properly should be on central time is on eastern time so michigan irs are already screwing with it or or continued to screw with it even after they adopted but the funny thing is the. Us doesn't make that a matter of statute until world war one. Oh the standard time act of nineteen. Eighteen is what gives us daylight savings time. The central powers had already decided to save on gas and electricity by maximizing daylight. Moving the clock ahead an hour again. It In the summer again for year long daylight savings time. Oh just switch it. And then that's essentially the yeah. I would love it if the pacific coast just ran on mountain time. We're not allowed to do that. By statute the government will let you choose daylight cities but it will not let you choose your time zone. It's the nanny state. And the the point of the act was to mandate daylight savings time in the us for world war. One is part of the war effort but that would only work if time was standardized everywhere. So that's when places like you know that's when the coal country gets dragged kicking and screaming into our four time zone world and in nineteen twenty. The us naval observatory begins giving the time away for free over the wire. And that's what ends finally The allegheny observatory's groundbreaking and lucrative Effort at at inventing time. You know in my own life. When i was a kid the state of alaska where i grew up was was separated from seattle by two time zones that no longer exist like the state was divided. Or what was all of alaska on the same time zone then or no. Yeah that's what i thought Alaska alaska time there was yukon time and and then anchorage pulled the beijing. Well it was a thing where there were. i think you con- time switched over. And that meant that. Only yacob tat in alaska occupied this special time zone so so it used to be That living in alaska. If i called my mom in seattle it was three hours.

"Then midnight and affect tiffany. It was great because over time you you know what time it is good at that now even without a watch i think i'm always within about fifteen minutes. Yeah it only took me a month to be able to just at any point a day just sort of look up and it's not like i was marking. The sun is at arked across the sky. But just sort of like oh right. It's about two thirty three and that's fine. What else did i need. And then at one point. I met a guy in hungary who wanted to join me for a while. He was like we were in budapest and he was like. Oh you know. Can i walk with you for a few days. And i was like i liked him a lot and i said sure. Join me and he had a watch and so all of a sudden every time we pass a sign that said You know that we had walked five kilometers. He would look at his watch and say oh well we you know we're making good time. Yeah or we're not making good time. We need to pick up our pace. That's that's that's me. That's my dad curse on the road trip to be like we're not making very good time. I wanna pee again. Come on and he drove me crazy. And after days i was like we. You have to go home and it was very frustrating. Because you actually didn't actually sent him back to hungary well in hungary the time and that's what's that's convenient for him. That was really frustrating because we walked for two and a half days and then we got to town. He got on a train and was back in budapest in like twenty minutes and i was you know you thought he was a dilettante. I was like. Oh god. If i could just get on. I mean that guy needs to go walk across arizona new mexico. Yeah with no watch and see how he likes it. At this point a character enters our story. Samuel pierpont langley one of the although. We don't remember him today. One of the leading scientists of the late nineteenth century and a pierpont so a leading citizen if he's related any kind of pierpont family. I mean it's a middle name so you can. You can name anybody. I mean i could name. my kids. rockefeller doesn't make doesn't make him rockefeller little too late. I think to be naming your kids. No it's okay. In their late teens. My pronoun is rockefeller. The he later went on to become the secretary of the smithsonian institution. Unfortunately he oversaw a terrible embezzlement scandal. Which kind of led to his eventual breakdown and death. He wasn't embezzler but I think the embezzler was working for. He's fouled goes. It's probably best known. For his aviation related experiments. He was one of these balloonists. No right brothers era like one of these guys who in the early twentieth century were racing to try to put powered flight together right. Unlike the wright brothers marneffe to go to a windy place chose the deathly still air of the potomac river and as a result a catapult so he was cheating his his plan not only needed a catapult to get aloft. it also didn't really have any kind of role a control. He could imagine yaw. Yeah i think he only had pitching yob not roll. It was like pretty much the pilot's body odor not invented the same. Kind of three axis Steering mechanism that the rights had rigged up right so he had a plane that you couldn't really take off or land in. But except for that kerr otherwise. Three solid sounds. Sounds like real pioneer. Yes so he didn't. He didn't win the race to the air. But back in the eighteen sixties. He was primarily an astronomer. He was really into sunspots and The the allegheny telescope association of pittsburgh kind of a just a private citizens astronomy fan club had lost its funding and it had. It's a pittsburgh observatory kind of gone to pot in disrepair. This is prior to this. The skies of pittsburgh being choked with with smelter smoke back. Then pittsburgh was the smartest guy observatory But isn't it funny back then just like like minded citizens would get together and built an observatory. Yeah i kind wanna do it today. Have you ever been to the university of washington observatory in the seventies. They were still scanning the skies from forty fifth avenue in the university district. I don't think they still do. I mean seattle's not a great place for night sky observation anyway just because it's cloudy two hundred forty nine c. You're probably right not to mention the light pollution but in this case the same thing happened just you mentioned the university of washington. The club out of money and bankrupt left the observatory to the university of pittsburgh which put samuel langley in charge. He was interested in sunspots. He wanted to study sunspots but the observatory was in a bad way and sunspots then is now don't pay the bills do know cream for that. he his. His research on sunspots was very influential at a lot of the the knowledge we know of sunspots comes from his work but again not a not a thing that corporate government clients were interested in so he needed money. And langley's idea was this. What if i fund my sunspot research by taking very accurate time measurements with my observatory and charging charging for the knowledge. A little a little intellectual property intellectual Little scientific capitalism at work and at first his bright idea is. I will sell this time to jewelers. Jewelers are always selling watches. They've often got that big old timey clock out in front. Do you remember the of course. There's still a few left. And a lot of americans have to in seattle. I think i can i. Can i can picture that one in In a union. I guess right which was transplanted there from. But there's one there's one in westlake to yeah that's the thing there's one that's right down there blocked from west lake. There's another one kind of.

"You now. Oh no you're you're like eat your meal on time person absolutely no. I just eat them whenever. You're already eating on wellington. I probably am i should. I should try and see if that's true. Maybe that's part of my confusion in the world is that i've been wellington time. This whole time. Confusion and eleven. You should see if your body craves like southern hemisphere foods. Like very and pavlova at weird times of night a do not all eating them in in the in the antipathies. I never want any vegemite. I do not want green east jam so this is how the uk and new zealand solve the problem. I should say that it is ten forty three. Am in wellington right now. A lot of the future to our listeners but but for us and honestly it feels like ten. Am to me even though here. It is to forty three pm. That's less of a gap than you'd think we're not that far apart really in a lot of ways. Hey to the kiwis. Love their children to h. e. lease. We're thinking of you right now across time and space one thing. One thing that you can new zealand have in common is their islands are small. You know this the this problem. The scale of this problem changes dramatically. When you apply it to even to new england or the american west where You know a train trip between maine and california passengers would be checking changing their watches. Twenty times every time you stop you get announced local time and it's never gonna match your watch so this pre time zone. That's what i'm saying. Timezones don't exist time zones do not exist until essentially the around the turn of the twentieth century. Wow the end. One problem with every railway choosing to adopt a certain so the railways would standardize across their systems but differ railways would do so differently and with different standards aligned to different observatories with the result that in pittsburgh in eighteen fifties there were six different roads. Sixty observing six. Different time standards insane. So you depending on where your train was leaving a train. The leaves a two. Oh eight on one. Railway might be the same time as a train leaving at at two twenty one on a different relative so they've standard standardized time within their railroad but they're sharing track. Yes it's like a corporate and i don't even know how much track their sharing then. These might be railroads with their own tracks. This might be the terminus. If you're at pittsburgh the terminus a bunch of railways depending on where. You're going you now have to observe six different weirdly local time zone. So what really led to. The standardization was not the crashes so much as consumer confusion people the anxiety of missing trains whole new new fear. The whole thing about trains is that is that they run on time. At least in. Mussolini's italy got fascists. Yeah so so. Yeah you get off your train. Arrives at two twenty. You know you're connecting train. Arrives to thirty except to twenty arriving train actually arrived to fourteen because they're on a different time and the to twenty or thirty train was leaving it to sixteen much train. Crashes were kind of the nine eleven of a simpler era This is i think a new anxiety for people. Are you like mead. You have stress dreams about missing the school bus or missing a plane. Layover or i will literally have bad dreams about missing a mode of transportation. That's about to depart. Used to make it a point to be the last person on the airplane. I've flown a lot in the last twenty five years. And i used to sit in the this is i started to count my miles and try to sit at the front of the airplane. You wanted you wanted. The fewest minutes on the plane was like why would i rush to get on an airplane. Just to sit there on the tarmac. So i would wait until they said you know last call and then i would get up and walk on and not have to wait all right. So you're also minimizing standing in line time like standing in line to get on an airplane to sit down and wait for other people to come on. But i have missed flights more than once sitting next to the gate and just sort of lost in thought and they call out like last call and i'm just sitting staring out the window watching planes taxi and then i look over and i'm like oh wait wait wait. Why is the gate closed and go up. And they're like yeah. We close the gate ten minutes ago. Like the. I've missed flights sitting in looking at the gate this very deep anxiety that a lot of people have missing the departure at the scheduled time. And that's a new. That's a new invention. I mean a lot of the other streams we have you know your teeth falling out or people seeing you naked or not being prepared for task do. Do you ever staged dreams of being up there and not knowing the set list or no. I my anxiety. Dreams are all about like being caught in a in. A sniper crossfire Well actually then you have very primal ones. I mean maybe a medieval a medieval a surf would also have dreams of being held up at sword point or something arrows coming in. But you're you're right. I mean even this prior to the steamship if you were on your boarding a ship to go to the americas it probably didn't leave at ten o'clock exactly being on time didn't actually exist right for you know in a meaningful way right. Wouldn't that phrase wouldn't have even meant anything because what is on time right. What is time to be on and there would be long discussions. No you're watches fast. No no it's not. I you know the the of the standard is in question. You never see it in a western. Where cowboys like synchronize their watches. That's why they always use high noon. Cowboys have to go to the village. Sundial in front of the saloon michio at high noon. Have you ever in your life. Lived for any period without clocks. I don't think so is it good. Is this a walking across europe store. Yes here we are. It's another episode of omnibus. It's new of set of john show. I walked across europe. And still eating out on it. And i talk about it every day. I did not have a watch or anytime. Peace with me when i walked across europe. You're back in a time when people would walk places and therefore you're on time when you choose to leave right. What the heck would a watch have done except give me problems and arash and And so four. Six months. I only knew time as dawn mid morning noon issue mid afternoon. Dinnertime dark.

"Six five now express is expected to act nineteen ten hours allegheny time don i took. Here's a here's a story problem for you on august. Ten fifty three a train leaves. New york headed south at the same time. A train heads leaves philadelphia headed north. Unfortunately there on a single track. Listen this is what happens in story. Problems never end. In in mangled iron embodies there on a single track. These two trains collide somewhere in new jersey. Is this at a time. So this is the eighteen fifties so early trained days early for trains and at the time they cut corners. Bhai sometimes just having one track. Oh i thought you meant they actually cut corners. Well if you're on track has corners. You are in trouble. A those things are not super maneuver so it would have been a thing where trains went around each other. On a siding type operation there were certain sightings but obviously it's much cheaper to lay down a single track each direction that's true in in recording music bro. They didn't have an eight track machine. So that four transco north four trains could go south but eighteen fifties. How fast these trains going One of the key. I think one of the trains trying to make up time going about forty miles an fast enough when you got to train behind you four. But two days later near pawtucket rhode island on the quite a ways away from the providence and worcester railroad. There's an even bigger crash again head on collision between a train. Going north going south and the timing of the sightings the timetable of who is supposed to get over on the citing. When did not work this time. Fourteen people died and the first one was on a blind curve. this one. I think had a train that was going too fast to try to make up time and it was just a horrific crash a wooden train cars. Just kind of telescoping together which you can imagine what happens if you're a a baggage or a person a non human baggage you get a whole other train. Cars comes up and right in your lap. Fourteen dead seventeen injuries back then and an interesting thing. I didn't really realize train's engineer didn't have brakes old. They just turn on a train. Oh yeah you can do that. I so i guess you have breaks away. Each car does have a wheel that a brakeman can turn right. But that's a per car thing that the engineer has no control over your not super bowl. In any way there wouldn't be a pneumatic system. That connected the whole train. It was the ad conductors that were furiously screwing down that that wheel and then the the engineer presumably like locks up. The the wheels isn't isn't giving it the gas. But wow i was reading to kinda period. Media accounts of these crashes scientific american has long. We doing that to the show where we just doing this. Just that's just a tuesday sitting in the bathroom. The scientific american called the railroads of new jersey quote the most contemptible and mean our land fit only for fiji. Legislators and dahomey actors tough talk. I guess comparing a infrastructure to west africa polynesia was the was the meanest thing you could say an extremely racist time of pretty mean. I don't believe fiji or dahomey really had railroads at all back salute. They did not probably salute. Probably please don't look it up and if you do just correct john and not me. But the scientific american editorial probably infrastructure right are today railroads are crap. We need at a minimum double tracks because the citing thing is not working if you go from philadelphia to new york today. Is there more track there there. There there are plenty of tracks but it does not make that a a much better much better zone. You don't have the head on collision now. There was a terrible derailment. Not that long. Could you still get derailed. This same on the same track engineer was was exceeding the speed limit. There's a famous tunnel in baltimore that That like sort of precludes the railroad that that east coast railroad being improved. Didn't we just do this on. We did. I think it's last addendum. If you haven't listened to finish as we are not going through this again that that information was not for you know that was for the patriots. That's right there's a financial cost that comes with knowing anymore about that baltimore tunnel or at least the version of it. We kind of red forbade him from a reader. So i read a new york. Times had multiple stories about the second one that crash in rhode island that left fourteen dead and seventeen injured. And it's really hard to overstate the trauma that these high speed rail crashes caused when that was a new thing right because imagine i mean the railroad was such a revolutionary technology. Yes people must have been so excited that we no longer have to barge up the erie canal. We can beat as possible for the first time in human history. You can grow faster than a horse but there was. No there's no. There's no comparable collision between two horse-carts. Yeah i was just thinking about that. I mean people would have been aware of natural disasters ships would sink. Shipwreck is the closest thing. I think you're right because one of there's a flood or you know you would be used to big death tolls from a flood or earthquake in in diverse parts of the earth you would develop a religious system to think right well. These are acts of god. it's hard to say that when operator era or operator error or lousy tracks means to train smashed into each other at a speed. Your your parents couldn't have imagined. Yeah think of just the violence of a collision. The the they didn't have collisions. Collisions hadn't been invented right. It's a kind of sure crazy like startling and probably nightmarish to consider particularly because it's the first example where you can see a collision is imminent and can't do anything about candy or anything. You don't have breaks. Yeah this was there. Nine eleven really took the as far as the way that they articulate. Just the trauma that every train crash back then was like nine eleven. Here's the here's the new york times on the second crash. The headline is more slaughter by railroad are grown again with reports of wholesale slaughter by railroad trains. Hard upon the heels of the catastrophe of fund. The camden an envoy road. That was the new jersey crash come tidings of a similar instill more dreadful disaster up on the road. Between providence and worcester there is a startling similarity in the circuit circumstances of the to the heart sickens over these incessantly recurring reports of death and destruction on our public affairs. We lose all faith in the safety of travel and ask despairingly if it is utterly impossible to provide a revenue remedy has human ingenuity been exhausted. In devising the means or has the power society preventable to enforce such la by regulations which will prevent the holocaust to the railway demon. Wow this guy is losing it in the middle of the paragraph.

Pennsylvania ballot counting is delayed

"In Pennsylvania, they've announced that Allegheny County is not going to begin counting about 30,000 ballots. Until tomorrow. These systems are just broken. They're just broken. I mean that the possibility of undermining public confidence is so unbelievably high when you delay the count's this way when you're not counting through the night when you are delaying the counts. And obviously it's because of this patchwork of laws that have been created. That's not just on Democrats and Republicans. It was on Republicans in Wisconsin. It's on Republicans to a certain extent in Arizona. A lot of the message that air created here bipartisan message and they require natural cleanup. There's a reason that Florida runs this thing. Really tightly runs. This runs really clean shit when it comes to the voting count. According Crisp Otter. The reason why Allegheny County, which includes Areas that are very democratic and could make up the difference for the four for Joe Biden against Donald Trump in Pennsylvania. Right now, Trump holds a very slim lead in Pennsylvania. The reason that Allegheny County apparently is being delayed is because the ballots in question, according Chris Potter, who's reporter for W say, require special attention. The vast majority of the 29,000 involved situation where a vendor sent the wrong balance voters and then had to reissue new balance with the correct races. Challenges there. Now voters who have to balance one with the wrong race is you have to give those balances special security to make sure that a people don't vote twice and B. If they just send in the old one. They don't vote in races. They are eligible for us. You can't just scan them along with the rest. Other ballots in the pot include those that don't scan for another reason. When a team won't process the amount of the check. You want deposits. You have to bring it into the bank office when ballots required special scrutiny. The county records at the vote through return board whose members are sworn in and for that purpose. The board reviews the results tell it up by election workers after polls closed but also addressed his provisional ballots. Military ballots, etcetera. Board members are said to be sworn in Tomorrow, the Friday after Election Day. Is nothing in the fairy is here. The county's GOP chair is comfortable with the process. This is also not people just taking a day off. The other factors. The county has to wait until Friday for mail in ballots to come in there were postmarked by Election Day. That whole situation was adjudicated by the courts as faras the complaints that that Republicans have about ballots coming in after Election Day, they're not postmarked. Those ballots are in fact being sequestered there being kept separate from the other ballots until if the Supreme Court has to rule on that the Supreme Court will rule on that. As well. There are a lot of rumors out there right now regarding the possibility of voter irregularities and voter fraud. This is exacerbated by the fact that the Trump team is filing some fairly while predicated lawsuits. Apparently there's one lawsuit in Pennsylvania that they just had granted. It was an injunction forcing The trump ballot watchers to be allowed into The balloting areas. So this is it's all a mess. I mean, I think the short story here is is all a mess.

Philadelphia votes have mainly been via mail-in ballots

"In Philadelphia in Allegany County, about about 30% of votes have been of the state has voted in Pennsylvania. And a lot of it is has been mail in ballots, and a lot of it took place in Philadelphia, Allegheny, and that's venues. One of those states where you can actually change your vote. If you voted early on Election Day. Do you believe that What's happened last couple of days will help push the state red. Well, I genuinely believe that it's already baked in the cake in connection with who someone is going to vote for. I don't really think that you have many undecided voters at this stage of the game, considering we have an election coming up next week, and so in terms of pushing the state raid I it's I can't speak to if it happens or it doesn't happen. One thing I will say is you have more residents in the state of Pennsylvania that have been turned off based on the anarchy that happening recently, a couple what would happen with the death of George Floyd with the inability of elected officials to subsequently contain the violence that has plagued these communities, so that being said, I think you have a lot of those people that have already understood and accepted. This is my candidate of choice before they even walked into the voting booth before what even happened this week, So I don't really think that you're gonna have much of a seismic shift.

Absentee-Ballot Expansion Promotes Early Voting This Year

Absentee-Ballot Expansion Promotes Early Voting This Year

"Early than ever before, way more at 2.5 weeks before Election Day, Some states are already up to a third of their total turnouts from 2016. That's being driven by absentee ballot expansion all over the country because of the pandemic and a surge of in person early voting, But not everything has gone smoothly. We've seen long lines in Georgia and Texas and tens of thousands of mistakes with mail ballots. Joining us now to talk about all of this is NPR's Miles parks who covers voting. Hey, miles high there. So just how big has the early voting this year? It's been huge, more than 17. Million people have voted already, according to this database compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, and it's hard to really overstate how unprecedented that is. You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far? Yeah, There's clearly been some hiccups with in person and with vote by mail options, it seems like computer problems have contributed to a lot of the in person delays that people have seen photos off in Georgia. The database used to check people in was slowed down because of all of this traffic on the website. There were similar stories in Texas Houston Public Media's Elizabeth Tro Vel spoke to a voter named Renee, who spent nearly four hours in line going to three different precincts. I cry. I frankly think it's a form of voter suppression. There's no way there should be a glitch on the first day of early voting. No way and then you're gonna tell me I gotta one place and they say it's the printer. Come over here. This is the printer. Then they said the main system I've just never seen anything like this ever. You know this is a tough problem for election officials. Obviously, no one should have to wait that long to vote. But we also knew the pandemic, combined with potentially historic turnout would be in some problems for in person. Voting and lines do usually get better, I should say after the first couple days of early voting the wait times in Gwinnett County, Georgia, for instance, which was showing waits at 234 hours earlier this week on its online tracker today, when you look it was mostly under an hour. Well, what about voting by mail? I mean, a lot of people have been worried about the post office handling so many ballots are those concerns justified so far. Yeah, I mean, we've seen a lot of administrative errors, reports of administrative errors with the absentee balloting. Just yesterday in Pennsylvania, Allegheny County announced that 28,000 voters got mailed the wrong ballots, but it's also important to realize scale. We're talking about thousands of ballots, but 80 million ballots have been requested nationwide. Here's former deputy Postmaster general Ron Stroman. Despite some of those concerns, things were going at this point I'm reasonably well, Stroman said. It's important to remember that if you're hearing about a mistake at this point in the election, like in Allegheny County, for instance, officials realized their errors early enough to send out new ballots and fix the problems. That is NPR's miles. Parks. Thank you, Miles. Thank you. One company

Surge in COVID-19 cases continues in Allegheny Co., Pennsylvania

"It's sixty five degrees now at d. v. e., m., porter, allegany county health officials say another daily record for positive Kobe. Nineteen cases announced yesterday. One hundred ten positive cases reported yesterday one more than the previous record set the day earlier. Most of the latest batch of cases are reportedly coming from people between the ages of nineteen and forty nine, and the majority of those cases have traveled to other parts of the country for vacations. Vacations mainly Florida and the Carolina coasts That's why the director issued that advisory to quarantine for fourteen days. If you travel the other common denominator for infections, was people going to bars and restaurants in the county and I believe if I remember right from watching some of the press conference yesterday Dr Deborah Bogan Director of the Allegany County Health Department said only four people reported that they were at protests in the area.

This Weekend Marks One Year After Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack

"This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the shooting at the tree of life car Gatien in Pittsburgh it's also the second annual show up for Chabad on the weekend right after the shooting we at J. C. encouraged Jews and our allies around the world to go to synagogue and show up for shut it became the largest demonstration of solidarity with the Jewish people in world history this year as we mark the tracks nick anniversary we hope you'll show up for Chabad again on this weekend October Twenty Fifth and twenty sixth head to AJC dot org slash show up for Chabad to learn more Manja who did you chat with this week Avi Mayor the Managing Director of Global Communications for AJC who spearheaded an unprecedented survey of American Jewish you too about anti-semitism how about you for my interview I really zoomed in on Pittsburgh and spoke with Jeff Finkelstein the president and CEO of the Jewish Federation in Pittsburgh so let's dive right in and hear those conversations now Sunday October twenty seventh will mark exactly one year since the deadly shooting at Pittsburgh is tree of Life Congregation we spoke with Jeff Finkelstein President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to get a sense of how Pittsburgh is doing one year out jeff thank you so much for joining us thanks for asking me to do this now we're almost exactly one year out from the attack that Jews US All across America felt in our own way but the victims were in Pittsburgh so I should start by asking how is the Jewish community in Pittsburgh doing so I think you're actually starting with the right question the answer's complicated and complex because when we talk about the community were all victims and there are different levels of victims obviously the families who lost loved ones the people who were injured those who are in the synagogue but escaped and saw the shooter people in the parking lot the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill the general community of Scroll Hill the Jewish community of Greater Pittsburgh Etcetera and so there were all these rungs and I think if you ask representatives of each of them on different days you'll get a different an answer So the real answer in one word is it depends you just reminded me of the poem that you might be familiar with called the order of the bomb by you who to buy it's a famous poem by famous Israeli poet and it's too long to read into the record here maybe we'll link to it in the notes but in it he basically talks about the concentric circles of you know he's speaking of course about a bombing in Israel but he says the diameter of the bomb mhm was thirty centimeters but the range of the people who had hit and the people who were affected by that and the people who cared about that further and further ends by saying and I won't even mention the Howl of orphans that reaches up to the throne of God and beyond making a circle with no end and no god which is perhaps deeper than either is intended to go there but you're certainly right to point out that the attack took place in one location but it was felt everywhere it definitely has ripple effects by the way e yes I was my professor at the Hebrew University when I was there for my junior year and I actually don't remember studying that home but I'm sure I did at one point uh now going to have to go back and re read it you know and I can speak personally there were days where I feel more than others as we approach the one year marker and I'm looking at some of the drafts of videos that are going to be used I ended up in tears and and other your time's I'm fine when the attack happened in Powei that retraumatize people in the community including people like may so I just think they're good days is there a bad days and I'll end this part just by saying that one of the blessings in my professional work has been getting to know especially the victims families who were closest to the incident they are truly remarkable wonderful strong inspiring people that's that's that's beautiful a year ago so when this happened Pittsburgh became a mechanism for antisemitism in America right it became a kind of shorthand when many people today say Pittsburgh they don't mean the city on the allegheny river they mean the place where an anti Semite attacked a synagogue and that for you it's home right it's where you raised your kids it's where you work and perhaps not only where you go to work but it's the community that you really help to Lee it has it been jarring disconnect between the city people talk about in the one that you live in it's actually interesting I just I wrote a piece and I haven't done anything with it yet it on this topic specifically because I really might even be anger that I feel when people referred do what happened here as Pittsburgh they say we have to remember Pittsburgh Yeah and when I what I want them to know about Pittsburgh is that this is an incredible unique Jewish community this is a place that's growing with close to fifty thousand Jews today that's getting younger with millennials going into our city because of the increase in eds and meds higher education medical work and high tech in general and it is is and I always state this without actually ever researching it but it never stops me it is the last major urban center Jewish community in North America outside of New York every other Jewish comed- that I know of the major community has moved out of the city itself we are still saying entered in the city of Pittsburgh with the diversity of the Jewish community there it is an incredible place and that's when it comes to the Jewish communities what Pittsburgh it should mean and when it comes to being just a city this is the city that built America it had the third most fortune five hundred companies in America after New York and Chicago for a number of years it literally built America with its steel and those are the things that people need to remember about Pittsburgh this week AJC released the findings of a new survey of American Jews feelings about antisemitism and in the survey we found that a quarter of American Jews say that they avoid certain aces events or situation out of concern for their safety as Jews forty-seven percent report that Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have been targeted by antisemitic threats graffiti or attacks and more than half of American Jews report having police and or private guards posted outside of their institutions. What has the hardening of Jewish communal spaces look like in Pittsburgh so just to take it back prior talks over twenty seventh year and a half before we hired a Jewish community security director at the Federation to start looking at that and his work save lives on Tober Twenty-seventh we we know that from people who survived in twenty four hours after the shooting took place we convened all of our Jewish institutions for briefing with our security director FBI police local politicians and talked about what was going on in the community and we at the federation made the Vision we hired armed guards throughout the Jewish community for the next four weeks we paid for it and the whole idea was to build resilience we didn't want people so scared of coming into our Jewish institutions forty eight hours after the shooting the largest Jewish preschool which is located at JC and Squirrel Hill all but one family showed up that's what we were aiming for and yes facilities have been physically hardened and there are addition thousands of new personnel for security at many of them as well someone asked me about this earlier today and you know has it has on an impact on people my own synagogue I was just there for Simpler Toronto Media Sarit I know the armed guard the people who come a lot we know oh that guard he is not Jewish he wishes you Chabad Shalom on Chabad and hugs them on the holiday it's not jarring it's comforting actually for most people I think and he's almost a member of the community and it's really it's been beautiful I think that's the way a lot of the institutions have tried to deal with the addition of security personnel now the tree of life congregation where the shooting took place last year issued a statement just last week too it's it's New Vision for the synagogue building a new mission for that institution can you tell us more about that before I answer the question I wanted just makes are we make one point that it was the tree of life building where the attack took place and that building house three congregation right tree of life New Light Endorse Hadasha and I I know you know that Steffi but I wanna make sure your listeners know that it's really important that people realize that so they've been talking about this for several months now with different parties that might be interested in co locating and collaborating on the site there's just been one initial meeting with the group I know that because we at the federation help convene that first meeting and there are a lot of details to be worked out think the congregation tree of life itself the owner of the building has been very public especially Rabbi Myers and there president that they are committed to re opening on that site in some way what it looks like exactly I think we'll take some time but the idea that Jewish life will be can you on that corner in Squirrel Hill I think is definitely is key to their thinking I just WanNa close by asking You Jeff how are you going to be spending the day I'm sure you're going to be on call and and working throughout the what will you be doing to commemorate next week so the day has been planned there's been a group that's been meeting from about the third week after the shooting they've been meeting every Thursday and that group is convened by actually part of the federal government with representatives of the three impacted congregations it's the Jewish Federation are Jewish community center or Jewish family and community service this is another local nonprofit called the Center for victims and a couple of official representatives of the victims families themselves and they have put together the framework of what will be happening that day my federation team is the one that's actually done the heavy lifting to make it all happen and that's what I'll be participating in starting at eleven am we have volunteer activities we have slots for slightly over eight hundred people as of today we're well over seven hundred are already filled in the ideas that we're going to make the world a better place in the name of those lives we lost very traditional Jewish way to do it at two o'clock the next traditional Jewish way to remember those who have lost will be tower study and I I think we're approaching four hundred people now registered for that with lots of different teachers representing all the different streams of Judaism which is I think the way we function in Pittsburgh working together and then at five o'clock will be a large community gathering to be run about an hour or so and most of that again centered around those we lost everything that's happening that day is victim centered and trauma informed because it's the local incident in Pittsburgh whereas the rest of the country that are doing things for them it's not their neighborhood per se and so that's how I'll be spent in my day is going to each of these things and being with our community well jeff our thoughts will be with you as you do that thank you so much for joining us on people at the todd thanks EFI
