EU Reverses Move To Restrict Export Of COVID-19 Vaccines To Northern Ireland
"A mistake. That's how British Cabinet Minister Michael Gold is No describing the use sudden decision. To impose vaccine export controls of the Northern Irish border. The European Union quickly reverse that step after was loudly condemned as a violation. The key clause in the E U's Brexit deal with Britain, in other words, that there would be no hard border on the island of Ireland, but this crisis isn't over yet. Northern Ireland's First minister, Arlene Foster, Vehemently criticized the U. What's absolutely incredible act of hostility towards those of us in Northern Ireland. It was nothing to do with making sure that Northern Ireland was in a peaceful state and all to do with the European Union's vaccine, embarrassment and mismanagement. The prime minister and I need to act very quickly to do with the real trade flows that are being disrupted between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Arlene Foster with you more, but that vaccine makes management shortly. But Mrs Foster also called on the British government to abandon and replace the existing post Brexit protocol for Northern Ireland. Agreed with you up until now. We've been trying to deal with these issues on individual bases, but the protocol is unworkable. Let's be very clear about that, and we need to see it replaced. Because otherwise there is going to be real difficulties here in Northern Army, Alan Foster again with us get more details on this. Richard Morgan is the BBC's business report. Hurry Northen Ireland, he explained the background to this reaction. This Roy is really as a result of the European Union looking to trigger what is known as article 16, which is ah clause within the Brexit agreement, the Northern Ireland's protocol. That essentially change is hard up protocol works and what was going to happen here is that if article 16 had been triggered, it was to control the supply of vaccinations. Throw it the EU and there were real concerns essentially that vaccines arriving in the Republic of Ireland. Could basically get into great Britain using Northern Ireland as a backdoor because Northern Ireland is still part of the EU single market for goods and there would be no checks, but one article 16 would have done Is created a hard border on the island of Ireland when it comes to vaccines. The whole point of preventing that hard border was to protect the good Friday agreement and to protect the peace process on this island. So, of course, it has escalated as you mentioned beyond vaccines. With Arlene Foster, now, basically calling for replacement of the Northern Ireland Protocol. Is there any chance that that would happen? Well, I think unionists it's worth saying or absolutely furious. They view this as Brussels about to hit the nuclear option. They already here the Northern Ireland Protocol because it has essentially placed a border die in the Irish Sea, requiring goods arriving in Northern Ireland. From Great Britain to undergo some checks and processes to prevent those checks happening on the island of Ireland, where the border currently is, and I think, essentially unionist, they're saying, Well, look, what process was willing to do At the first sign of any trouble of any problems on this was to do with vaccines. What could happen down the line? I has this set a precedent and could we see Article 16 being triggered for anything on any concerns that arise on what uncertainty will this create for businesses and for Northern Ireland's economy Because we'd already bean been seeing pictures of empty shells and Northern Ireland Linds supermarkets, So this comes at a time where there already were growing trade issues. Yeah, Things haven't been smoothed over the last couple of weeks. As you say Supermarket shelves have bean empty. There have been issues around getting certain goods across the Irish Sea Jew to those new checks. We have retailers, well known high Street stores, who have simply stopped selling goods to Northern Ireland on the online retailer Amazon. It's currently drawing up a list of products that it will no longer offer to customers in Northern Ireland's and this is really concerned business on politicians, particularly unionist politicians, who have been calling on Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, and the U. K government. Trigger article 16 themselves in order to ease the supply chain issues on. Many are saying that if solutions aren't find that tree, a disruption is only going to get worse as we get further into this

What we've learned about Barrett's views on abortion cases
"Judiciary Committee hearings in full swing this week. Arlene's outta wrote this report. For many feminists, it is the most painful, outrageous and sad irony that the Supreme Court seat once held by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most staunch supporters of women's rights and civil rights, will soon be held by another woman. But one who seems to be the mirror opposite of R B, G and all her views the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings this week on the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. But her views on full display despite the fact that she repeatedly refused to answer questions about her opinions, questions on such settled issues as the right to birth control and the right to vote, including a peaceful transition of power. As the result of that vote, all got I cannot comment answers. When asked about her view opposing same sex marriage, she offhandedly used the term sexual preference when referring to the LGBT plus community, even though many activists say the term is offensive. One after another Democratic senators tried to press her on her record, such as the fact that she previously signed onto an ad describing abortion as barbaric and calling for the Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. Her two dissenting opinions and abortion related cases, one of which involved allowing minors to get an abortion without notifying parents by way of judicial bypass, and another that would have required fetal remains to be formally buried. Observers say 17 cases related to abortion are one step away from the Supreme Court and three including a 15 week abortion ban from Mississippi could be taken up as early as its next session. And her only nod to any progressive opinion. Barrett seemed to support the idea of desegregation by calling the Brown v. Board of education decision a super precedent that isn't likely to ever be overturned. The Judiciary Committee is set to vote to approve barrettes nomination next week with a vote of the full Senate by the end of the month. Bang. With the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Questions about her ties to the religious right have raised concerns about the fate of Roe v. Wade and a person's right to reproductive choices. Her turn. Reporter Ellen La Luzerne spoke with Karen Garst, who author to anthologies about the impact of religion on women. Women beyond belief, and women versus religion. Last received her PhD in curriculum and instruction from UW Madison and is a current resident in the state of Oregon. 2016 you published a book Women Beyond belief. In the book's introduction, You stated that you wrote the book after learning of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby lobby's denial of reproductive care for their employees. Your reaction was to question why a corporation can use its religious beliefs. To dictate the healthcare a woman could receive. Fast forward to today when we're witnessing the Supreme Court nomination process for a woman who is a valid Lee, a member of an extremist religious sect that believes that women should submit to their husbands What was your reaction when you heard about the nomination of Amy Clooney Barrett for the U. S Supreme Court. First of all, I wasn't surprised because Trump has already appointed people to the Supreme Court. I didn't watch quite a bit of the confirmation hearings of his previous nominees, so I wasn't surprised that he appointed someone who's conservative. He vowed when he was elected that he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade. If Connie Bear is confirmed, What is your opinion about the impact that this might have for future cases such as the Affordable care act and a woman's right to choose? Well, I think it's going to have very dilatory ous impacts because now we're going to have a Supreme Court. That is considered very conservative. I believe six of the justices will be considered Catholic, and there are going to write decisions as they have for that have a conservative bent. I think it's very unfortunate that the Supreme Court has become so politicized. If we look in our history. One of the things that I was doing some research on was previous decisions and Brown vs the Board of Education. Which desegregated schools was fundamental change to the way this society was operating was a 9 to 0 decision, and people saw what was happening in society, and I talked to a friend of mine who is a lawyer there. Who said, you know, there's this public sentiment. That's how culture changes. And people were attuned to that, And now we're not appointing people to the Supreme Court who have an open view. They're very, very one sided, and I think it's totally tragic that she's going to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What do you think the consequences will be for Roe v. Wade and access to freedom of choice? An abortion? There will always be abortion. The question is whether it's going to be safe and whether it's going to be legal. There has been throughout time before Roe v. Wade. It was back alley abortions, and I think younger women today they don't know what it was like before then Roe v. Wade. If it were completely overturned, I think would have a revolution. It might take a while to put it together. Rather, I think what they'll do is just approved all these restrictions on it, making the doctors who on abortion clinics we associate with the hospital, whether it's making AA lot regulations on the clinic itself and what it can have and what it has to have delegating more. The authority of states and people are going to have to say I don't want to live in a state like this. If they overturn it completely and make abortion illegal. I just Hey, I'm ready to start the revolution. I don't think they're going to go that far. But who knows? What do you think, drives the women who are supporting people like Coney, Bharat and Support these types of efforts to keep women as subservient to men, such as the belief system of Annie Cockney Barrett. Religion is an indoctrination in a set of beliefs. I'm 70 when I was growing up in the fifties in Bismarck, North Dakota. Every person I knew went to a church or there were three Jewish families who went to a synagogue. But it was part of everybody's life. So you're indoctrinated in that It's your family. Everybody else around you is like that. Unless you're exposed to something different. This shapes who you are. And we know that Trump was elected by conservatives by people who identified as religion, particularly fundamentalist religion. That's too he appeals to, and it's unfortunate that the religion hasn't changed enough to deal with our society today. What is interesting to me? Is that this woman, Amy Cockney Barrett is very intelligent. She is ah, Notre Dame professor. She's an appellate court judge, and she has seven kids. I can't imagine trying to balance all that. But in spite of that conservative religion, it is pretty hard to say, Well, she's helped meat of her husband because she is Ted her own career. In your

Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.

change back everyone we that we that are looking was are at going their heaven CO to keep two by movin emissions K. that are hand looking through at deforestation also stereo known are actually as Kelly taking hand and that into we're gonna consideration check got her out start if in you look at the the social Detroit some peace within techno of our scene our risks the that's looking at the women two companies who one DJ of provide the queens today like in this of cold who environment were deeply I would influenced say our Detroit companies that by we're techno investing and are they where providing it really by honestly their employees the techno house health care and techno it's got are its they start providing scene of them Detroit he simply you where know it moved out because to these techno Berlin are all important and has came become back factors synonymous that in companies in with the United need States to embrace and you know because a lot not of only leg are they so

Some people are making bread in quarantine. Others are making TikToks
"The short video platform tiktok was already a big hit before the pandemic but since so many people have been stuck at home since march a lot. More people are discovering it and even though tiktok is in the news for its new. Ceo kevin meyer. Who was poached from disney and for record labels who think the service should pay more to publishers and artists for using their songs and for actual calls to ban it in the us over its chinese ownership and security and privacy fears. Well people like marketplace own. Hey super alvarado are finding that in quarantine. It's just kind of fun. More than three hundred million people downloaded tiktok in the first quarter of this year. That's fifty percent more than last quarter and total two billion downloads. Laura pearson a student at usc who happens to be my roommate started hearing huge buzz about tiktok ride before her spring break. Her friends were sending her lots of links sketches and dance videos. So she downloaded the out thinking. Yeah nice easy way to kill some quarantine time. It's like this cute little app. You can record videos. She started to spend more and more time on tiktok when she wasn't zooming into her classes soon enough. She started producing. She recruited arlene. Pereira are other roommate. She's of course also home from her teaching job at el camino college here in southern california. They chose zico's any song. So we spent the whole night trying to figure out how to do the dance and have a certain level of swag arse it out of the way in the living room wall. My roommate's discovered how much time it takes to perfect tiktok dance and that just gave me a whole new perspective on tiktok that you see these super silly videos but boy is it quite the production darlene. Then we all decided well. Let's do this. We invested in a really nice phone Tripod with a Cute Little Bluetooth control on Amazon. You can even find bundles. Called Tiktok kits including a ring light tripod and some other fancy stuff with prices ranging from forty five sixty and even up to ninety bucks. My first tries to sketches not amazing but still funny right now. Almost two thirds of tiktok users are under the age of thirty four. It's especially popular with eight hundred. Twenty four year olds. Yup that's us. Talent agents are getting in on the action managing famous tiktok trying to get work in Hollywood and connecting social media. Influencers already making big money. Laura is showing the TIKTOK universe for crocheting wizardry and as for our lean. She has a few dance. Talks and droughts including one two the song wannabe by the spice girls and for me keeping my day job for now that was marketplace
Adam Greenwood and Dr. Arlene Astell discuss alleviating loneliness in care homes
"So we'll get started here The audience wants to know what we're talking about today so I'm going to give each of your chance to describe the product and say this is what we're doing. This is the advent of it and this is why it matters so adam go ahead started for us last year when I watched a tedtalk. Khuda what makes a good life by Robert Loading and he said a Hob- professor and he was talking about the Harvard Study of Adult Development I'm sure you guys are aware of it. Seventy five years seven hundred plus men and then about two thousand that children where they were looking at the work the hung life and the health people from lots of different socio economic backgrounds For for an unprecedented length of time and the. I suppose what the amazing results were that it wasn't about upbringing. It wasn't about health or money. It's good relationships. Good relationships keep us happier and healthier Social connections all good for us and ultimately loneliness kills and I was doing some research And I came across a piece by a UK charity Kool aid UK and they said that around half a million older people. So that's sixty five plus you can go as long as a week without speaking to another person We as an agency is digital digital agency have been looking at ways that we could use voice. Tech- Lots of different Scenarios over the last two years and this is something that I felt really stormy about And so we wanted to find out if we could use voice tech- to help to tackle the problem of loneliness. In order people excellent Arlene so my interest in this has come from working with older people and trying to get technology into their hands to make lives better The this many existing off the shelf devices and APPs we can download really have functions that can benefit people but often the pros has tried to connect people with the technology trying to find the people who will benefit has being challenging particularly came to us with some work. A few years ago is set to pay 'em a network of Ph D. students who are looking at Health and wellbeing in later life. And how technology could help and one of them was very interested to work with the the people who are really hard to reach people who are lonely. The people who are isolated who may be not having contact with services but sitting in their own homes with Shrinking social network shrinking an ability to to make contact to make new contacts. And how could we stop to to look at where they emerging technologies could could assist them and particularly things like Anything would make new social connections so I was up to see delighted to To be connected with with Adam and Greenwood Campbell when they wanted to start looking at putting boys technology to to tackle loneliness excellent. So what is the product do? And how do you deploy it? And what's been the response what we wanted to do with this study. First of all was just find out if the if the acts of talking to voice assistance would help in in tackling learning us so what we did is So we've been working with an organization called Abbey Failed. I'm here in the UK they They have a bow About four hundred retirement living homes around you can't about seven thousand residents so We all stem if we'd introduce Alexis Google assistance into some of the residents rooms so that we could start to do some qualities studies about the Their effects on loneliness. And that's that's when we start to work with Arlene to help us to try and understand initially how to gauge loneliness in order to people And then often the study we could find out if it made any Tackled it in any way

"Dream one day ride bad in Alabama little black bars and black girls will be able to join hands with little boys and girls as sisters and brothers. I have three days one of the things that modern society prevents us from doing is getting lost when you were doing the Trans Himalayan will now. It's nearly impossible to get lost like and I love the fact that you have a poor sense of direction which means you must get lost quite a lot so tell us like what it feels like to be lost. Well not only do I get lost a lot. I am an acute optimist. Himalayan mountain climbers have to be an acute optimist. I do remember night where I was going to be meeting a bunch of hikers at a high Sierra cabin on one side of the Twin River and somehow I was on the wrong side and I was sure there'd be a bridge but there wasn't so I walked all the way back and caught up with them. So when you're lost it's actually good that I always try to think of that. When it's when I'm lost I do not keep going forward thinking they'll be a bridge. I turn around and go back to the last place where it was newer. I was because then I can find my way if I can't find my way to where I was having trouble. I love that. That's fantastic advice for life in general so before you took sabbatical and your daughter was born. What was the emphasis of your science scientific inquiry? Sellin I came to Grad School at UC. Berkeley I was given a project to try to figure out the structure of transferring may which is an important small biological molecule and it has like eighty bases and a few transferring as had been sequenced. So I went and got four. Colored Strings of hippy beads on Telegraph Avenue in four colors and I- strung all the sequences on wire. And then I kind of folded them around. So the right ones paired with the right ones and I discovered for all the knowns sequences you gotTa Clover Leaf shape and a lot of people thought that was remarkable and should be published but my adviser wanted me to do experiments to prove it. I spent several years than climbing every weekend in the sodas and Inbetween doing experiments. Just before I was finishing I went to the movies. What was the movie that was playing the endless summer? The beach boys with great big surfboards. Going on around the world looking for the perfect wave and I thought wow. I'm a climber I should look for the perfect mountain so I spent fifteen months climbing around the world. We did a bunch of sense and I was very lucky to climb in Iran and Afghanistan Kashmir and if the opium lots of places that unfortunately have not done well since so I felt really lucky and again that empowered me that I could dream up something that I was there kind of a moment where that mountaineering experience kind of influenced how you saw the scientific world. Well when I was a post doc at Stanford I was trying to understand the structure of proteins and how they fold and nobody at that point. Thought you could actually look at a half folded protein and start actually physically measuring what it looks like. And so I went off to an expedition to Soviet Central Asia to climb peak lennon the highest peak of twenty five thousand feet and there was a terrible storm. A lot of people died. I just got down. I was in the storm near the summit and managed to get down and I was sitting at the bottom of the glacier watching the ice dripping and I realized what you should do is freeze the protein and then put it into a spectrometer where it was warm and as it thawed you could take pictures of the thawing protein and you could get evidence for what it looked like. Nobody'd ever thought to do that before and I came back and I did it and it worked and that actually sort of started the field of protein folding. My Professor. He later told me that the person who got a Nobel prize for protein folding came to see him and said there was one experiment that he wished he had I done. And that was my experiment that I thought of sitting there on the glacier watching the ice drip incredible and with so many Nobel prizes that should have gone to women that just went to two men. That's probably another example. So how did you then transition to where you are now which is full-time science advocate policy advisor scientists powerful and our model of using really good science to change policy and to change how people purchase things does work amazingly while it started in the seventies when indeed a friend of mine died climbing? Who was an early environmentalist? I wanted to do something for the environment in his memory and went to see a guy named Bruce Ames who developed a bacterial test for which chemicals are likely to cause cancer. I said what can I do for the Environment? And he said well. I'm worried about these. Flame retardants and kids pajamas. Their ten percent of the weight of the pajamas. I think they're coming out and getting in the children. I think they may be cancer. Causing might test will show if they're likely to be cancer causing do you. WanNa work on plummer. Titans and that sounded really bizarre to me but I was depressed so I said sure. The cancer causing flame retardant in question is cold trysts. How did you go about making the connection between that and products? We found a little girl whose mom had bought her pajamas in the UK. And so we put her in the tryst pajamas and collected her urine and the first day her urine had trysts flame retardant breakdown products known cancer causing chemicals and every day. She where the pajamas the level went up. She stopped wearing them. The level went down so it was clear that the tryst chemicals we're ending up in the child in America chemicals in products that go into our mouths like foods drugs pesticides regulated but the rest of chemicals pretty much are not regulated like playing retardants. So that was alarming and then we ran a screen to see if this chemical change. Dna was it. A Mutagen was likely to cause cancer and it was one of the strongest mutagens ever measured. A Mutagen is a chemical that changes DNA and that can likely start cancer to start growing so chemical sit cause mutations are likely also cause cancer. You really don't want them inside your children. So we reported our result in a lead article in Science. Very High Impact Journal and the subtitle of article was the main flame. Retardant in children's pajamas seems to be cancer causing it should not be used. And so that's a really strong statement and then we did media those days. Were on all three TV morning shows. Good Morning America the today show and within a few days every parent in America knew. They wanted out of their kids pajamas and three months later. Twist was removed from all the kids pajamas. In America. We thought the problem was solved. This was one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. You jump ahead now to two thousand and seven my daughter. Starting College. I have not been doing science for very long time and I wanted to go back to doing something useful and maybe I can get a job washing test tubes in somebody's lab and then I discovered that trysts same tryst. We've gotten out of kids. Pajamas was back in the nation's furniture and it was like five or ten percent of the weight of the foam in most furniture most baby products and it was just as harmful and nobody knew about it. I have to say it's been thirteen years and every day of that thirteen years. I've sort of felt like I was on an appearance like they're exciting. Things happening there opportunities. Because based on that I wrote an op Ed in the New York Times about the fact that Chris was back in furniture connected with Russell. Long a local activist. Who said let's write a bill and we'll change that because actually it was a California law that was followed across all of the US and Canada. That was responsible for all the furniture and children's products in US and Canada containing these harmful and it turns out not even useful flame retardants so if these chemicals are not useful why why are they being used there primarily to make a profit for the people who produce them and they're in all of us and all of our children. Our pets are wildlife. Somebody did a study of honey. All the honey has a little bit of flame retardant. Well that means all these a little. Bit of flame retardant. That's maybe not why they're having so many problems but we know it's not helping their health. The impair neurological development. They impair reproduction. The I guess. The storm analogy with Anna. Anna would be the chemical industry spending upwards of twenty million dollars to try and defeat you every turn in Sacramento when you're pushing legislation to ban. These flame retardants how you ultimately successful. Well actually weren't banning flame retardants. What you have to do is change. The flammability standard. Because if you ban one flame retardant it's replaced with another one that's very similar so we had to change the standard and Sacramento and that was really hard because the chemical industry of course claim that fire safety would be impaired but the fact is that you could stop the fire before it reaches the foam. That really helps more than just putting a lot of chemicals in the phone which just makes the fire smokier and more toxic. The thing that really changed everything was going hiking with that. Then governor senior adviser this very place being able to educate him about the fact that the flame retardants were harming the health of everybody in our country and that the fire safety standard needed to be changed and so with the help of Jerry Brown. It was changed. So the flame retardants in furniture and children's products problem has been solved and it was based on good science communicating the science. But just like it doesn't sound late you'll policy advocacy today's over because you were successful on flame retardant now and indeed. The flame retardant industry is busy trying to bring them back to furniture. Unfortunately there unrelenting I mean when the law changed. They sued the State of California's saying they couldn't change the law they lost and now they're doing all kinds of underhanded things trying to bring the flame retardants back but what we're working on now is other chemicals. Were the whole concept that we wanNA think about chemicals in families because sadly if you ban chemical you often get a chemical replacing it almost identical and you can keep doing that forever and the chemicals were now working with the worst of the worst. These are the stain and water. Repellent chemicals called pizzas per and polly flora Alco substances a big mouthful abbreviated. Pf as and there forever chemicals. They never breakdown. They've contaminated the drinking water of tens of millions of Americans There's huge liability now for for having used them and what we've learned is remediating them as expensive if impossible you know. Once they're out in the world all you can maybe do is give people clean drinking water but you can't really clean them up there so expensive and so the best thing is to stop their use in products and we have contributed to the outdoor industry which has used them. A lot is moving out of them. You can buy outdoor without them. The fast food industry used them to coat wrappers and pizza boxes and they're moving away from them. The carpet industry has moved away. They major source of exposure for children was carpeting and they've pretty much stopped using them and the clothing industry. Many companies have stopped using all pizzas. And you want to stop using the whole class. We think it's really important to stop using all P when they're not central when they're not necessary and so we've been working with different industries and industries are setting. They understand it because it's about seven thousand plus Y- different types of fastened in those classes which is stunning. I mean you think to your point if you ban one or two this still six thousand nine hundred and ninety eight left and it turns out that the chemical industry new in the sixties about the harm of before that because it wasn't officially a hazardous substance. They didn't have to tell anyone you know things happened. It was really shocking. But they discovered that one Mice were exposed pregnant mice. The babies would be born with an I. Fact and at the Dupont. Plant a chunk of women had babies with the same. I'd effect and Dupont not report that they just took them off the line for Awhile and that was like in the eighties and So they knew for fifty years about the home before the chemicals were phased out and then they replaced P P with which are eight carbons with very similar chemicals. That were six carbons and that's kind of where we are now. But a lot of manufacturers retailers companies are realizing that they don't WanNA use any members of this class unless they're essential are you observing kind of corporate sensitivity to these issues in a way that you didn't see ten years ago well certain companies are very values driven. Akira is our star example. They learned about P in two thousand fourteen and by two thousand fifteen they had it out of all their products worldwide on they had substitutes. That were not fast. They used in raincoats. Umbrellas shower curtains. And they said for tablecloths. We haven't found a substitute that provides resistance. So we'll just stop selling tablecloths and KIA stopped selling tablecloths worldwide. They still don't know that's very valued driven. Unfortunately many companies are more bottom line driven than values driven the organization and the Green Science Policy Institute is really a global hub convening scientists and advocates around this particular issue..

And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis.

Coronavirus Aid Package Is In Turmoil In The Senate
"What is the best way for? The United States to spend almost two trillion dollars are negotiating over. Exactly that question as they try to help the economy endure the hit. It's taking because of the krona virus. Pandemic Senate Republicans say they know what they want but then yesterday Senate Democrats blocked vote to proceed on a bill NPR. Susan Davis has been following. All of this morning sue. Taniwha would happen last night. Exactly well. It's important understand. It wasn't on an actual piece of legislation itself. That's still under negotiation. What Senate Majority Leader Mitch? Mcconnell was trying to do was fight the process in the Senate and those negotiations so they could get to a bill in the coming days. Democrats blocked it because they didn't like where the status of the underlying negotiations are as long as you have that leverage you can keep negotiating but that delaying tactic was really infuriating for Republicans. And this is Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell on the Senate floor. After that failed. The American people are watching this festival. I'm told futures market is down five percent. I'm also told that. That's when trading stops so the notion that we have time to play games here with the American economy and the American people is utterly absurd. Mcconnell concern obviously when the markets open later this morning that they will look like a Washington isn't responding system fears there although Cinnamon Arlene Minority leader. Chuck Schumer said. He still believes they can have a deal. It's important to know. Negotiations continued early into the morning hours Secretary Treasury Steven Mnuchin up on the hill. Talking to Schumer and other Democrats so things are still moving. Yeah it seems like Democrats and Republicans would be equally worried about the economy given what we've seen in the markets over the last week so when it comes to this bill. Where does the difference of opinion lie? What are they disagree about? Important to know that they do agree. On the main structural parts of the bill in two of the main things are small. Business loans gloom guarantees and direct cash payments to Americans one of the big hold ups that first of all Democrats just want more. They want more money for unemployment benefits for workers. They want more money for hospitals and they want more a language in the bill. That would clarify how it's going to help corporations they they don't want to quote unquote bailout. The current draft would give the treasury secretary a ton of discretion on how to spend that money so they're essentially saying they need to know that the money that's going to go to corporations is going to go to the workers themselves And this is a sticking point. That's probably the main sticking point before they can get a deal and this is becoming more urgent sue because there are now some. Us senators who are self quarantining right. Yeah I mean the current viruses already come to Capitol Hill. There was already to house lawmakers who have said they tested positive for the virus. Senator Rand Paul. He's a Republican from Kentucky announced that he did two yesterday. There were already two. Republican senators in quarantine to additional senators have had to go into self quarantine because of contact with Senator Rand Paul. There's also you know that's a very clear public health concern on Capitol Hill where senators are still gathering. There's also just a legislative math reality that Mitch. Mcconnell now needs even more democratic votes to move forward with a piece of legislation because he's down five of his own people who are self quarantining quickly. They can't vote from afar. They can't there's no rules or infrastructure in the House and Senate to allow lawmakers to vote remotely and You would have to change the rules of both chambers arguably it might be unconstitutional. So it's not as simple as many people believe it would be vote remotely so interesting Assu. I guess the big question now is what happens next well. Negotiations are ongoing minority leader. Chuck Schumer spoke last night. He said that he was Had plans to meet with MNUCHIN. He said he was optimistic. They could announce a deal as early as this morning. However House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi says if they don't make any progress she's looking to put forward a bill of her own and if that happens that does mean that negotiations are going to drag on NPR congressional correspondent. Susan Davis Sue. Thanks so much for your reporting on this one you're welcome.
The evolving photography industry, with Arlene Evans
"Our topic as it will be how conferences and major photography magazines are changing in the industry. Now before we do that. I know you're an amateur photographer. So how did you get involved like this. Whole photography conferences in mm-hmm magazines? Well I was living in Los Angeles at the time which is where. WPI was headquartered in the mid. Two thousand cents and I was friends with the gentleman you know named Skip Cohen. He was he was president. WPI at the time and the director of WPI's left and he asked me if I would be interested in taking the position because he wanted someone on who wasn't really involved in the professional photography industry sort of a neutral party to come in with fresh eyes and little little. Did I know that fifteen years later I would still be in this industry but I said yes. So was you know. SKIP SKIP incredible judge of character. So that's a lot for you. Thank you know. And he always has a way of thinking outside the box and try to bring somebody in in a position. Bishen that you have that doesn't that's not a full-time professional photographer. I think speech volume. There's no ego involved old. You're looking at it with a fresh set of eyes. And I. I just think it's a great. I'm out of time. So congratulations for that. Well thank you very much I. Yeah that's great so let's talk about the events that are happening now. I'm you guys just announced a major bomb show. What was that? Yes we announced announced that the PDF brand was going to be retired. And with that was We were discontinuing the publication not not only magazine but range finder. As well you'll still have range finder the digital format. That's correct where we're we're going to be creating all the content now on range finder online dot COM We are actually in the process of redesigning the website to better. How's the information that we want to put on there now? We want to expand coverage we WANNA cover industry trends gear and not only what's happening in the wedding portrait world but other areas of photography as well so that we can better her serve our customers the photographers who have been very faithful to the range Finder magazine since the nineteen fifties. So that's a really exciting. You know it's funny because some people look at that as a negative. Oh my Lord. I can't believe this. PDF when they're no longer having print publication will think of all the major Magazines not just the photography world but outside of the photography world that are switching to digital. Just it makes sense. It's cheaper you can make changes to it immediately And we get things out to the public faster so I'm looking at this kind of a positive step. How do you as a content creator yourself? How does this? How does this affect you were were were you? How are you looking from your perspective? Well it it's going to be a big job because as you know putting putting out. A monthly magazine is very different than creating content on a daily basis. Where you're going to keep photographers will want to come? I'm there and learn the latest of what's going on in the photography industry and We really try to on top of that with both magazines. But now we were. It's GonNa be a fresh look. It's going to be fresh perspective we've discovered through surveys and you will know this as well younger photographers take in their information from social media or online whether it's youtube or the looking at facebook to see what other photographers they're doing the reading their news on CNN dot com. So we're just trying to be not cognizant of what our readers want and they want to get their information online hole that makes sense to pdf N.. What shift to different magazines yet? PD had range finder. That's what was the difference between the two well. PGN was focused more on commercial. Fine Art Photographers. It was a very different. There was Assam overlap but it was more Commercial photography whereas range finder started as a wedding republication then expanded into wedding portrait and as you know. Portrait now has really taken off a so many different genres whether it's boudoir pants. It's just not the typical family portrait anymore that you think they're just so many different areas in portraiture sure so range. Finder has also got along with those trends as well so it really was a different focus than PD N. Gotcha that makes sense. And then that's where you have the different groups which you have. WPI as a conference and then photo plus so you had WPI on the the west coast of the United States and then you have photo plus the east coast of the United States so did try do info plus on the west coast once a long time ago and they did at work so they is definitely the best place to have federal plus Gotcha Crepe I so without Canadian with that part of the publication gone. Where do you see the what you see that being integrated with range finder or other things? You're doing well. The content is not going to go away way What we're going to do is look at all the content we've had over the years from pgn and we're going to take what was meaningful meaningful from that and disperse it to the other side so whether it will live on photo plus dot com range finder online or WPI VPI that content will still be there as because it's still relevant and we WANNA make sure that people still have access to it? It's interesting you go back to twenty cornell for example you go back to some of his books he saying the same thing he said all all those years ago but he's saying the different and a fresher with a fresh voice and people are like. Wow I didn't know that in here thinking really. He's been talking about this. A how many years but but Tony has that way of taking the knowledge and disseminating it to a new generation as a a little bit. He's he's great at it and I think that there's something to be said for the teachers that have been around around for years and they have such an expanded knowledge base. And all they're doing is cultivating a new audience. The younger photographers is who may not necessarily have access to season photographers. Who have worked in the industry for years at know how to to apply these concepts and ideas that they're teaching? You can't get that necessarily from a youtube instructor. Who is going to talk about? Things is that they've only had experience with for two or three years.

Get up at four o'clock in the morning, we had to be in the field by five o'clock, and we would just start working we'd be working for the next nine or ten hours from the potato fields to JPL here. Ston zeal has Marlene story. Now, you're gonna see where other really good toys are the real insight. Lander is a robot on Mars down here, Marlene works with an exact replica. It's about five feet tall the same size as she is the Lander stands on three stilts. It speak dome is covered in gold foil. It has up panels and along with claw on the end nearby.

"This is Arlene page on Twitter, and Dr saccharin you've also been sharing grim insights into treating gunshot victims. But you are also one of them. That's correct. I was a victim of gun violence when I was seventeen I was nearly killed after being shot in the throat with a thirty eight caliber bullet this is during a high school football game nineteen ninety four and my hearing a little of that. Now, I mean shot in the throat. Yeah. So you know, I actually have a paralyzed love focal horde. And so I do have a little bit of a raspy voice. And you know, when something like that happens. It's such a young age, it really changes your life and this. This second chance that I got really inspired me inspired me to go into medicine inspired me to become a trauma surgeon, and then really figure out. How do we work at that intersection of medicine public health and public policy, in fact, he trained with the same surgeons who saved you to be the trauma surgeon that they are. And so now you see gunshot wounds every day, would you think when you for saw these tweets from the NRA stay in your lane? Well, you know, when I first saw that type of communication, I really was incensed. And it honestly was a clear demonstration to me the rest of the medical community, and frankly, Americans all across this country that they are not serious about moving this forward on this public health issue that we're facing. Well, look this is been going on for a long time. We remember congress hasn't substantially funded gun violence research since nineteen ninety six and that was after the CDC got curious about the NRA claim that guns made homes. Safer. So they did research and found out to officials horror at the time that in fact guns made homes, far less safe. The NRA was so angry about that study. They went to congress and lobbied to get funding for that kind of research cut off, and they essentially did with the Dickey amendment, which is why we haven't seen this kind of research you and all these other doctors now in this study that came out that prompted the NRA tweet this time around, you know, are saying you need that research. Do you think you're going to get it? The research pieces such an important point because gun violence has less than one percent of the research funding that other diseases, for example accepts this have even though gun violence and sepsis kill about the same number of Americans every year. So having federal dollars to be able to figure out what are the solutions to dealing with this problem? Similar to what we've done with motor vehicle fatalities in the sixties and seventies and tobacco is going to be so critical to move this conversation forward and really be able to implement appropriate solutions. This is about all of us United together. And so right now a lot of us are in conversation with other organizations to team up with them to be able to again work together. Similar to what we have communicated with the NRA. We feel like everyone deserves to be a part of the solution. So we're not going to style ourselves off. We are. Going to break down the silos and work with existing gun bonds prevention organizations, gun owners in order to really help move this conversation forward and implement action that's going to save lives and make community safer. But do you think that things have shifted, and, you know, the response from the doctors would seem to indicate that maybe they have we've surprise lots of F bombs in tweets and people saying that must be my lane come into my lane. I've cared for victims of gun violence for the past twenty five years. This is from one doctor another neurosurgeon shared a picture of a bloody bullet she'd removed from the brain of a six month old that had been shot at trauma surgeon, New Jersey posted the picture of the blue plastic chair..

Gail Carson thirteen at gmail.com or go to my website WWW dot spunky old brawd dot com and sign up for my weekly newsletter. My guest today is Arleen Gayle and she is known as the book writing business coach, and she is just now launching her eighth book book, business blueprint, build credibility, stand out from the competition and skyrocket sales. By writing your book. Arlene uses her thirty years of combining business marketing and writing expertise and speaking about these topics to help entrepreneurs communicate positive, productive professional messages that are clear and consistent. When adding the power of a book, she teaches how today's technology allows different book formats and platforms for business building credibility and marketing to grow the bottom line. Welcome Arlene to women in business. Well, thank you, Gail, it's so great to be here. I appreciate the opportunity now you you teach people how to write books, which I personally believe every single person has a book inside of them. So what kind of books do you help people right. Well, just about any book imaginable. But you know, when people think about a book, the first thing that comes to their mind is what I call the big bestseller, and that's a great book, but not everybody's ready to start with the big bestseller. It's a little intimidating. So sometimes I have to start them with other things that are great marketing tools as well. But you referred to the technology issue and technology has helped people write different types of books that exist in different ways on different platforms to do different things. And for example, there's the mini marketing book which is a lead behind. You'll hear people refer to that as the new business card. It replaced kind of the Tri brochure that we used to live leave behind with people. And then there's also a website based book that's designed to live on the website and its marketing purpose is to help business people give a taste of what they do. What their expertise is to potential clients who then come to them and say, hey, yeah, I wanna work with you. 'cause I've learned these things about you. So that's called a website based book. So I help people right all of those things. All of those types of books to help with the number one goal is building credibility, credibility and building business with their book. You know, that's so interesting because it's, it's interesting. Yeah, that people think, you know, I'm gonna have this great, big bestseller. And if if people knew how many books are are published every single day, they wouldn't think that is so easy. 'cause I know how difficult and as well. Yeah, you know, I mean, most people think you get this big advance which publishes are not really doing that much of anymore unless you're a really proven author and you know, it's, it's really interesting. See that the western, we say, the myths that people believe in terms of writing a book. So I would have to say you probably by by giving all these different alternatives, you really get people to wake up and say, wow, it didn't know all of this was was involved. So what kind of clients with. Well, you you, you hit a hot topic and that book. Yeah, I don't know why we keep losing people. Go back. I'm here. She me, you dropped off. So let's I don't know. You went, you went away totally way. All right. So that's where 'cause I'm sitting still that me ask that question again. Okay. So Arlene. What kind of clients do you work with. Well, I worked with a variety of clients. First of all, I believe that if you're in business, you're an expert and every expert should have a book again to help them position themselves with credibility to the right kind of clients who want and need their services. So my clients can be people who have our new to business and have little to no content because what I do is help them write the book and outlining lay out the book as a marketing tool, a credibility piece. And then from there it clarifies their branding, their unique selling proposition, their client base. So we can start with the book and work backwards to develop content and and find tune branding. And the flip side of that is working with people who have a lot of content and helping them kinda clear away the trees to figure out, okay, which piece of their content or which piece of their business branding do they wanna feature in this book. Because sometimes they have so much content, they don't know where to start. So from the book we can, it also helps them to say, okay, so this book is going to be about this piece of your content. This book can be about this piece, your content because they don't want to leave any of their quote babies behind. So in helping them lay out a plan for how to deal with content development and turning that into a book that really helps the people who've been in business for a while to gain clarity to write that good business building book. So on either side of that occasion, I can work. But then I also have people who've got no books written and people who've written a lot of books and either way if they have it in them to tell their story, whether it's personal or professional, I can help them organize that and create a great business building credibility book for them. So as a book grinding business coach, do you ever get anybody who asks you. To help them with something that's fiction. Oh yeah, I can help people. There are several book tools that fiction writers can use. Also, I specialize in nonfiction, that's just by primary niche, but I travel around also a lot working with fiction writers because for example, this website based book is a great tool for fiction writers to use to build their fan base. And because fiction writers writers in general, spent so much time and energy, creating the world, creating their settings, you know, breathing life into their characters and their story that they, they miss the business part of that. And if you're selling a book, whether it's fiction or non-fiction, you really want to get the word out so that people know that you and your book exists. So just as an example, this website based book helps fiction writers build their marketing, their business platform, their fan base for the book that they've got coming out now or. The any books in the future and these there variety of different writing tools that can be used before their book is ever finished being written or published that help them build business. So I'm all about combining that writing with the business element because nobody writes a book thing. I just gonna I'm gonna put it out in the world and I don't

"Arlene Shimla university of. Alaska Anchorage archives it happened at five. Thirty six PM everybody. Knows that time on. March twenty seventh nineteen sixty four it was Good Friday so a lot of the businesses and the city offices were, closed that tastes a lot of people. Were at home preparing meals and not, out at work it was. Epicenter in Prince William Sound which is southeast of here it was a little, closer to, than Anchorage and it. Was a nine point two magnitude which is pretty substantial It's the largest that's ever happened on the, North American continent and it's the. Second largest that has happened in the world so this was substantial it was I test services and systems nobody had really gone through in what was a somewhat remote section of the United States. So the federal government had a presence here, certainly but. This was a challenge in so many ways these are some of the things that we full, today these the the ones flat on the table the numbers photographs the black and white all come from Frank FOX who was an air force pilot so he was. Actually flying around the city for the federal government and they were getting photographs. Of the damage so. They could get kind. Of a sense of scale of what was going on a lot of these are the turn again arm area there, has a fairly new subdivision that had. Just gone in its now known as, earthquake park and there's no. Houses there anymore because most of them the, bluff just kind of collapsed and, went in, waves on down the The Bank and so it destroyed number of homes in, this area I believe there are a few fatalities also in this area As. You might expect looking at this level of damage and the fact that a, lot of people were. At home when it happened this is probably one. Of the better known images is the JC Penney building which was fairly new it sustained obviously a, huge amount of damage there there was at least one. Individual killed because of the collapse of the side panels on, the building which were large. Side panels embraced up on the. Sides they weren't cross braced like we do today for an earthquake and they, basically slid down you can see that poor corvette there's. It's been partly crushed by the by the slaps falling down That building was a total loss I believe they actually felt, the quake as far south. Is Washington I know they felt. It in Fairbanks which is about an eight hour drive straight north I have been told there. Were actually some some effects of it, felt in places like Louisiana Mississippi that the water In small ponds could be seen to be moving so it was a pretty substantial quake. That that really affected there were people killed on the Oregon and. California coast line because of. The army that resulted these are some documents. From the lemon who was a, social worker her name was Margaret Hofmeister she was working in Seward at the time she was doing. Primarily children's services but of course she was a fully trained. Social worker and because of her work in that. Role she did a lot with kind of the civil defense response and so she kept a lot of those documents so one of the things she, kept was, this bulletin that was issued on Sunday. From the city of Seward to. The people of Seward talent saying you know this is what you need to do they're talking about the. Boiling water, what you need to do about outgoing now where. The outpatient clinics are all water must be considered contaminated of course all the water lines were, taken, out by this You, know at bleach to it to make it drinkable You can't use the toilets so they set up Honey Honey bucket says the Alaska term latrines basically gasoline was unlimited supply that there's also some concern about things like the potential for disease in a quake like this between not having palatable water and. And and not having toilets that flasher. Working Seward system you have to be worried about disease and so there's one requirement in. Here that typhoid shots, will be given on. Monday March thirtieth at outpatient clinics. Nine AM until noon you must underlined must get, yours no matter when you had, your last, shot orders which I find an interesting phrasing So this one was written by Edith Lindsey to her daughter in. Bellingham she really Monday evening after the. The quake was Friday she wrote it Monday evening and she notes in the top the, the daughter is labeled, this before it was. Sent to us that they have. Electric back they were living right downtown Anchorage in, an apartment building overlooking ship creek And, she says we are. Still getting along fine so, much better than many I still have on the same clothes I had on at seven AM Friday morning I sleep in my. Wool socks lung underwear Ed Francis and feral get PJ's but not me So you. Can't blame her though I mean they were still. Having aftershocks at that point and if, you, wanted, to get up. And get out of your apartment. Building in a hurry you probably stay dress I think that was pretty common for a lot of people it's interesting for such a widespread and traumatic event it's still. Very much a, local story Anchorage people sections of. Anchorage people felt laying in. One way certainly the people who lived in turn again might have had a very. Different response than people who lived, up on hillside, because they wouldn't have been, affected as badly For Valdez it's very much. Of l. d. story changed the nature of, the town, for Seward it's a Seward story it change the nature of the town seemed, for Kodiak there have been so many. Projects on gathering information from survivors. Of the quake and their experience of it some of. That was done immediately it was done to kind of figure out what would you do in, the future something similar. Happens there were a lot of psychological studies done of the. People involved but it really is a local thing. I people in Seward it's their quake, people, in, Anchorage it's their. Quake people and Valdez quakes so. Because they were all fighting different things sewer Seward almost entirely lost their economy for awhile over this Anchorage could still function Valdez which is largely fishing at the time A lot of their economy because a lot, of the, boats were away far inland due to the NAMI ways that took them up, plus support facilities were damaged so badly So there's too many factors to really say this is the Alaska response even though it affected so much of Alaska There's actually a huge Facebook, group of people who lived through, the nineteen sixty four. Earthquake it was created I believe shortly before the fiftieth anniversary, which was a few years back but they're incredibly, active even now when people, are constantly sharing their memories and photographs we periodically get. A call from somebody who says you. Have materials on this or I have my dad's photos which would be interested so there's still regular topic of conversation part of that is. Because we're a fairly seismically active place where, just hopefully not one that, big anytime soon I could do without that They it's, it was so life changing, it of of an event it really is one of. Those lifetime events where it's where were. You win and if somebody lived through it they can tell you they'll tell you every bit of it is permanently great in their memory Arlene Shimla and university of Alaska Anchorage archives The twenty eighteen summer, solstice Mark the one, hundred thirteenth annual midnight sun game in Fairbanks Alaska the amateur baseball.

"So we have a lot of people who are giving up the right to trial because they're afraid of these draconian consequences so it's bad when you get the full brunt of this in your face like arlene gotten in and these other folks that collaborated but there's also the people that are serving lesser sentences that now are basically deterred from pursuing their constitutional right to a fair trial because they know that they're going to get something absurdly draconian if they are convicted so i think the sooner soon point to burn it bartered adversarial system which is where he started her dr and one of these always struck me above average zero system is how it parallels our economy so there is a certain canova market sensibility the idea that competition would yield the most appropriate result and that assumption drives our our our our commercials is our commercial enterprises dries or financial capability for financial interactions and we see that that is not always true that oftentimes you type of market competition often yields outcomes that are not optimal for society he can meet their parallel to what we see your navasero system so i guess my question or some that we talk of our think about is is there something inherently flawed with adversarial system where it produces these extra now these were l allows for overcharging other types of a suboptimal interest to drive a a system that should first and foremost have both the defendants and and societies and you know uh interest in mind as opposed to allowing these type of other types of considerations.
