Enormous amount twenty three million dollars a day, for governor, so taking a step back. This question about climate change is this flooding happening because of climate change? The short answer. Yes. Sort of this river is high because of extreme rain. So when it rains here, it rains more than it used to in the past. And that's in line with what we would see under climate change conditions. The national climbed assessment predicts that when it rains, it's gonna rain more in the future because warmer air can hold more moisture and actually already seeing that in the midwest and along the east coast, sometimes fifty percent.

And with it the potential for the next round of deadly, and devastating storms. This year. Meteorologists say they're also keeping an eye on a new threat. Five G will change everything. The powerful cell phone network known is five G which will deliver information up to one hundred times faster than today's mobile networks. We push speed as far as we push. This is a huge concern because we fear that advances in weather forecasting. Art risks meteorologists are concerned because some of the frequencies, the Federal Communications Commission plans to use for five G are located next to the only frequency where weather satellites can detect water vapor a critical component for accurate forecasting.

Currently deployed is much less susceptible to interference that meteorologists claim a lot of people on the wireless industry say, these fears are overblown. They're all exaggerated. What's your response to that? I don't want to find out if they're overblown, I'm certainly in support a five, gene advanced telecommunications. But let's have a conversation to make sure we're not setting weather. Forecast back several decades there is still time for a compromise before networks. Rollout five G later this year, we don't want to move backward. We want to move forward with our weather prediction tape abilities because lives property, and even our national security, depend on it. No says that accurate weather forecasting ads thirteen billion dollars to the US economy, but cell phone providers say five g technology would add two hundred seventy four billion dollars.

Yeah. Did did you think to yourself? I'm going to have to leave the United States when I'm done, or I'm not sure I'll be able to stay Balassa a conversation. I had to have with myself because when Trump had announced that the DACA program was going to end. I really wasn't sure what it was that I needed to do. I decided to stay though, I, I work as the student most of us the DACA recipients to work. We just really prayed for something good to come out of this. And I mean, luckily, we still have DACA and I'm still able to work. And actually, I am I work fulltime, while going to school fulltime currently. Yes. So I'm just waiting until I graduates who able to just work fulltime and not have to worry about school as well. But whether I'll be able to continue to work through Dhaka years from now. I, I really don't know. But having a savings account is definitely a very important to me. So that's what I'm doing right now, saving money, hoping for the best. But honestly, expecting the worst, unfortunately do your college classmates. Your peers did they know about your status? So some of them did I did receive some text messages of you'll you'll be fun but being that they are citizens. I just don't think that they understood what was at stake here where I basically support myself. I have been supporting myself since high school. My mom has always been like a emotional support financially most Docker recipients, their parents are very low income. And so it's really hard to support entire family. And so, having to go back to a country where I haven't been since I was like three years old, the turmoil that's happening in the without right now all the certainties that was very scary. Which, I don't think my friends really understood our grasped. So as you prepare to graduate, how much debt do you have from college? That's a really good question. So in the state of California, students who apply for the California dream up location are eligible for loans, but they are considered state. Loan. So we are allowed to take out up to I think about twenty four thousand dollars. But luckily because of financial grants and scholarships that I received an addition to other outside scholarships, I'm only graduating with fifteen thousand dollars in debt, which is definitely lower than the average. Okay. So now, let me just ask you the question that I would ask any graduate, somebody that hasn't been through the things that you've been through, but any graduate. Yeah, what do you wanna do once you're once you're all done? What do you wanna do with your career? He had the million dollar question initially I wanted to go to medical school. And then just realize that, that is not feasible for me. Not in my legal state. I can't borrow loans like any other student can't so medical school would not be possible for me. So then I really thought about why wanted to go to medical school, and I just reasoned that it's because I really wanna help other people as cheesy as that may sound. But more specifically other. Individuals that are stuck in my similar situation. I just got really lucky to be able to be where I am today, for example, I could have easily been one of the children at the border and the fact that I was able to make it here and Bs privilege as I am. I think that's just absolutely crazy. And so, I really wanna work for private org, and be able to assist others. That is Maria Zavala, who is soon to be graduate of UC, Santa Barbara Maria.

That's right. And I'm sitting right on the Levy of the Arkansas river, which is running super high right now against these seventy year old levees that have never been stressed like this. The river's been this high once before the levees, the water's been up against these levees for days and will be for days to come and it's raining cats and dogs. Well, first of all, be careful on the Levy, but also the rain that's also not helping as the river rises. Are there mandatory evacuations what's what's going on? There's a, a strong evacuation suggestion for parts of town protected by this levee. I'm again, I'm sitting on this levee looking down into kind of a bowl between here and about a mile away. There's a highway, that would just fill up if this webby breaches. And so there have, you know, some parts of town are inundated and people evacuated their they are not letting people drive through here. The on the police were stopping cars. Lots of businesses have already pulled out everything they can. And there's still people making saw a truck driver drive through probably three and a half four feet of water to get his truck out of here. And of course it's just that was just about a minute ago. And of course, we remember the advices never drive into water in flooded areas, because you just don't already in what had to wait out to get to drive a cross. A fairly steep current to get his truck out of, you know, this rising water on the which is on the, the, you know, the sheltered side of the levee, thankfully, I think it's soft away. Look this Levy, seventy years old over seventy years old in many places. I mean has there been? Talk of updating it, replacing it. Well, yeah, there has been they've been talking about this for years. And this, this Levy, is something that people here rely on. And they've been talked of extending it because not, you know, the parts of town that are the worst flooded right now. Are the parts that are not protected by this levee system. It's a lot of money. It's hard to find the money to do this. I think they've got a, a local match for at least part of it. And sure that's a conversation. They'll be having internist after this flood dies down and Frank. Just meanwhile, what's it like there? I mean, I can't imagine kids are getting on buses and going to schools, or people are separating from their family and go into work. I mean is everybody just bailing? What's what's going on? Well, you know, I mean it really depends you know, like where I am here in sand springs, Oklahoma pretty hard hit. Lot of business are evacuated. However, if you go to the far side of the highway out of this bowl, it's not exact. Businesses usual, but their, their businesses.

Why Isn't Arkansas Pronounced 'Ar-Kansas'?
"You're an intrepid seventeenth century, French explorer transverse in the expense of wilderness of Louisiana, aka new France, a territory spanning the entire Mississippi basin for modern day, Louisiana through Illinois and northward into Canada, you encounter, dozens of native tribes each with its own language or a dialect, and you attempt to record their names in your journal as best you can this imperfect system is how English speaking Americans eventually arrived at many of their names for native American tribes, including the Dakota, Iowa, Alabama, Nebraska Ottawa Chippewa and Tuscaloosa, I think of it as a centuries long game of multi-lingual telephone these words evolved from their original pronunciation into a French approximation and finally into an English sized mangle ING of the French which brings us to the legitimately confusing. Question of how the state of Kansas spelled K N SAS. Could be pronounced Kansas while the nearby state of Arkansas spelled A R K A N as a s is pronounced Arkansas. This question was the subject of a pamphlet published way back in eighteen eighty one titled fixing the pronunciation of the name Arkansas the booklet written by members of the Arkansas. Historical society was bent to provide historical context to a resolution passed by the Arkansas general assembly declaring the one and only correct pronunciation of Arkansas to quote, it should be pronounced in three syllables with the final s silent the AM each syllable with the Italian sound and the accent on the first and last syllables being the pronunciation formerly universally and now still most commonly used. Apparently, what happened was that? Some Egge heads at Webster's dictionary had changed the entry for Arkansas to include a new pronunciation note, Kansas, formerly Arkansas, and that sent red blooded Arkansas NHS into Alexa, graphical tizzy, the authors of the Arkansas historical society pamphlet called it, a vicious pronunciation with no basis of reason authority or prior polite usage, a moreover people who said Arkansas', according to the pamphlet quote failed to consider that they would thus render ridiculous. A name highly poetic. It sounds and associated with the grandest memories of the past from the days of Marquette downward, Marquette, being the French explorer Jacques Marquette. The Arkansas historical society members argued that the divergent pronunciations of Arkansas and Kansas stemmed from similar French names. Given to two different native American tribes a Sioux tribe lived near the modern day. Kansas river in early French explorers called them by an approximation of their name, which sounded to French ears. Like Kenza these second tribe. The quote, PA lived further south west along the modern day Arkansas river, for reasons unknown, even though the poss book, a SuAn language, the French called them by Elgon Quinn. Name echinacea. Those names as the French rendered them, look and sound very similar, but again, for reasons unknown early French explorers wrote out the associated place names, very differently explorer on regional tell writing in sixteen eighty seven wrote out the word for the area around modern day, Arkansas ACC, a n cease Adila E A S, and he spelled Kansas C H A N Z E S by seventeen Twenty-three Arkansas was routinely.

Floors called the Arkansas river the river of arcs or Benz for its curvy course.
