Health officials are considering giving citizens just one dose of the Fizer Beyond TEC vaccine. The job is meant to be delivered in two doses three weeks apart. Although there is evidence that one does offer sufficient protection for much longer. The radical approach could allow the country of 11.5 million people to reach herd immunity much quicker.

"Now those complexities of first anew as the nation confronts the continuing racism of today, and the legacy was built upon It's not Lincoln. That's an issue. I'm fine with us memorializing him. He was a monumental president. But it's this depiction. Specifically, that's the issue. Last month, 30 year old Marcus Goodwin, a Washington, D, C. Realestate, business man and now candidate for the D C council climbed atop the memorial. Public contrast to the kneeling man below. He then launched a petition drive to remove and relocate the statue. There's no such thing as a race in the past. My solution is to bring this into a museum, where it could be properly contextualized where a dosage can walking through and tell you the history. In the intentionality behind the art because it doesn't achieve its intended goal. People see it. They see demeaning imagery, and maybe it's a generational divide. But we don't see the type of fair and equitable representation that's inherent in the American dreams if you take down or changed the symbols or the monuments Is that not changing the past in some way? No. In fact, you're changing the future and you're doing it for the better, I would say. Goodwin says he got the idea of relocating the statue after seeing reports of a similar demand in Boston. Home to a replica of the same monument. And in recent days, the Boston Art Commission voted unanimously to take it down without yet deciding where it should go. It's a debate, says Smithsonian Secretary Lonnie Bunch with many layers It is about history, but it's about who we are as a nation who we want to be going forward. One of the nation's preeminent historians. Bunch was also founding director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He told us he is for keeping the Emancipation Memorial but perhaps adding another statue next to it of Frederick Douglass, for example, creating in a sense, more history. What I want to see is a reasoned process that allows us to discuss that allows us to bring history before we make it. Decisions of pulling things that now I think that yes, we could take that statue down. We could replace it with a statue that just talks about the enslaved and I think that what we do is while the one hand we enrich our understanding. On the other hand, I think we lose the opportunity to help people understand Maura about Lincoln and who he was what he did. Bunch thinks these memorials will have to be considered case by case. Local decisions by commissions that move with care but relatively quickly does that surprise you? How kind of deep this is gone. It is surprised me both how deep it's gone and how Rapids is gone with the challenges the statue itself doesn't give us any sense of complexity, nuance of ambiguity, but that's what history does. That may be a lot to ask in America so greatly divided, seemingly not in the mood for complexity and nuance, now fighting over its past and future. One statue at.

"Well, I hope I hope we bump into one another someday and renew our acquaintance is always great to hear from anyone from From Reedville. You know, that's a very special place to grow up. I know. I don't know. It's part of life. Eventually, a lot of people don't realize that. Thank you Can't appreciate you call talk to you soon. Okay, One more thing. What? They never did it. I don't understand why it's just loss and why it is the whole state of Massachusetts. A lot of people who have moved out of bosses on the path all came from Boston. I I think that I could argue that we could have had a statewide plebiscite a ballot question as well. That would have been the right way to do it again. I don't know who the members of the Art commission are. I assume they're appointed by the mayor. But I don't know that. I think they have a right to to talk about, you know, art. Is this art correct In all of that. I think that when they get into the area of politics and Political science and history. I think they should have left it to the To everybody, either in Boston, everybody Massachusetts Can I get a scoop will talk to you soon. Okay. Hope to see you soon. Thank you. Bye. We're going to go next to Cheryl Lynn in Middleborough. Cheryl in you're next on the night side on the nights I call it like a redhead, Sherman. Hi. I have a couple things in mind one when all this talk came up about statues in flag and every you know it occurred to me that like or not, there's still the big, huge museum that's been found. And call in the National Museum of Shane Put all these Arctic bear where they will feel adjust and be able to be seen. And yet be safe. The other thing is we started doing all this and it's like dominoes. Abdominal. What about weren't in the Romans? Time slavery in degree suppressed people. I mean, you could start tearing down the Coliseum. Forget that Thomas Jefferson had slaves. Of George Washington Black I'm talking about in the whole world. And, you know, I know I totally get it. I totally get that. But what are we going to knock down the Washington Monument? The Jefferson Memorial? That's the problem. That's the problem. Anderson people The other day, saying that they took they knocked down the statue of Father Juniper Sarah out in California. Hey, was the mission is not people down? Maybe there'll be people who don't like some statue That's out there someday to Tom Brady, and they'll not that I mean it's It's revisionist history. Really think and asking at the dominos that's being put into you know are we should protect right. I'm not in favor of the idea. By the way, I'm not in favor of putting everything in the museum because the idea of Statues in localities gives young people a sense of the history of that locality. And I don't want to have to have no young people in the future. Dr Tio I don't know. Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Tio. Go see the The Museum of American Statues. Caroline. Thank you so much. Appreciate very much. Talk soon. Go and have a great night. Let's go to George and lemons to George. Next on nights were bouncing around tonight, folks. Boston, Quincy and over middle not let Mr Hey, George. All the way out to route to Dan. How you doing tonight, buddy? I'm doing great. I'm doing great. Great. Hear your voice. Yes. I agree with you about? We can't put them all in one place in the museum. First of all very large against house is done it. Can you tell me that how the parent of down without preventing it is their larger People parent out statues. Do you know that? Well, yeah, they're they're all sorts of laws of get a bit against destruction of public property. Of course, I mean that there's there's There's all sorts of laws, and I think there are federal statutes. Out there that there are some people who have been indicted in Washington if you go after a federal statue in Washington, D. C. Sure that's that's that. No one has a right to tear them. The one thing I must say about this particular case here with this young guy Troy, but Torrey Bullock, he didn't advocate paring it down. He went through a process and got to eight members of the Boston Art Commission. Who made this decision. I don't know who the hell they are. They're not elected by anybody. This should have been a vote. In my opinion. They should have been a city vote or as I think Karen suggested a state vote. Stable would be better. I mean, but this is crazy. I mean, it started with ya, Ki. Wait where they changed. Jackie, wait. So what is it now? Ah Ah ah, I'm not even sure it was. It used to be our Jersey Street, and I think they changed it back to Jersey Street is a turn out one of the I think it was I want to think it was Peter Lucas, who did the research on Jersey. And this Jersey Street was named after some Duke from jurors from from England who himself if he was involved in a slave traders like that it was Peter Lucas, who did the research on that. Yes, And and I'm a stamp collected the if you know that, But I am looking at the stamp right now off the statue of three cents a day, and that's one of my favorites, and there's nothing offensive to this at all matters. I didn't realize that Yes. Is that the word? I think so? I can't ground right. Thank someone will correct. I guarantee if I'm wrong, and that someone will correct me. George has a piece of history in the underground railroad. We have the French to straight house here was used to help. Slaves. Get up Canada Way was not aware of that. But I do know that there was there was a lot of homes along the The underground railroad is a matter of fact. From where I live. Yeah, it's brand Florrick has been fixed up. So come on. Let's see it.

"Good evening, Everybody Welcome on into a Wednesday night edition of Night Side, Nicole Davis, thank you very much to call on newsroom duty and Expected later on. We're probably going to hear from dawn half assed the evening wears on. I am here with you for the next four hours from eight until midnight. I will be happy to tell you that we will have as a guest at nine o'clock. Right after the nine o'clock news Congressman Joseph Kennedy, Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts, of course, who is running against the incumbent, Massachusetts center and Marquis. That primary is now really only about eight weeks away from Well, I don't know. I think it's September 1st. So today's July 1st, probably nine weeks from tomorrow when you calculate all the haven't looked at the calendar, but it's going to come at its very, very quickly. Talk with Congressman Kennedy tonight at nine o'clock to talk with Senator Markey tomorrow night. At eight o'clock. This might be a good opportunity for everybody to I think a little bit about that Democratic primary in which of those candidates, you would decide to support given opportunity to call in and talk to either one of them as well. Later on tonight, we're gonna talk about the great Mask conduct conundrum. The mask up debate. If you will, a lot of interesting points of view on that some people are not interested in wearing masks. Others feel that they are the key to breaking the back of the pandemic. So I think we'll have an interesting conversation on that again. My name's Dan Ray. I'm here tonight. Every night from eight until midnight. First up tonight. Late last night, there was some breaking news during our Broadcast and producer Mark Lovell, who was sitting in tonight for Rob Brooks was kind enough to send along the story last night and a quest read more about it today that the So called Lincoln Emancipation statue, which has stood in Boston's Park Square since 18 79. Which means it's been there. What 141 years will not be there much longer. I'm not sure if it's going to be there 141 more hours last night. The Boston Art Commission. I'm Frank frankly, had never heard of the Boston Art Commission much before last night. There's a lot of commissions. They voted unanimously. Eight to nothing to Ah, Remove the statue. Now one of the motivating factors and this was a young guy out of Dorchester named a Tory Bullock. Who collected some 12,650 signatures to have the statue removed. Relocated. We did invite Torrey to join us tonight. He had been on the show with us a couple of weeks ago. Well, uh, he was unavailable tonight. But I do want you to know as always, we we reach out to people and if they can take advantage of the opportunity great if they can't Well, you know, night side. I might be here from eight to midnight. But other people have other things to do as well. So we do not have Tori tonight, but he certainly was very successful. Little bit of background of the statue is called the Emancipation Memorial. It's also called the Friedmans Memorial was erected in Washington. The original is still standing in Washington, 18 76 although that is under Certainly criticism at this point the delegate down there, Eleanor No. Holmes Norton, basically that the non voting member of Congress would be one way to describe it. She wants that statue removed as well. There was some threats that the statue would be tourney down. I mean, this is Abraham Lincoln. Now I know that there are different people who look at this differently. But let's just look at a little bit of the history of it, and then we'll open up the phone lines. This is the fate of calm play. I don't think this statue was coming back. But I do think it's important to hear what you think about it. And this some aspects of it that I think of quite interesting. Certainly interesting, historically. Ah, the sculpture of the statute actually from Boston. His name is Thomas Ball. His name was Thomas Ball. He was born in Charlestown. And not only does it depict Lincoln Asi. Great Emancipator is we've course all new. I mean, no, there's a lot of arguments and a lot of questions about you know, how would what Lincoln really feel. Did he do this? And you can talk about all of that. But the reality is as the president of the United States. Um, he he held the nation together. The South could have succeeded in that could've been it. Or the South could have won. Lincoln, as we know was assassinated in April of 18 65 just days after the end of the war. So besides Lincoln, who's holding in his hand? The Emancipation Proclamation. There is a slave who is bent over on one name, something Perhaps, that the slave is about to rise up are others view it as a very paternalistic pose of Naked with his hand over the head of that slave. The slave apparently is a fellow named Archer Alexander. Who himself helped the Union Army. It was a hero of the Civil war himself. And the statute that is in Boston was a gift to the city by then. Boston politician. No, I never interviewed him. Name was Moses Kimball, and in 18 79 he made a gift. It's a smaller up a replica of the statute in the one that's in Washington. So all of course, the issues that we have been dealing with in the last few weeks. As result of the horrific murder of George Floyd. Ah, Tory Bullock looked at the statue and collected as I said 12,650 signatures to have it removed. Now in the Globe today, it was reported that a relative a distant relative of Archer Alexander, a gentleman by the name of Keith Alexander. Ah suggested that the statue be moved to Alexander's grave site. He is buried somewhere near ST Louis. No. I actually think that's a good idea if the statue has to leave Austin..

"This is all things considered from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro Cove in 19 infections are now on the rise in 40 states, and that is forcing many governors to rethink their reopening plans. In Alabama yesterday, Governor Kay Ivey extended her state's safer at home orders until the end of July. Well, we're not overwhelm dead. We should not think that because someone feels more normal than spraying that we're back to normal fact his folks we are still in the thick Of this virus disease, and it is deadly. The state is now logging an average of 1000 new cases a day. Hospitalizations are at their highest level since the pandemic began. Dr. Scott Harris is Alabama's state health officer, and he joins us now welcome to all things considered. Safer at home order that the governor extended yesterday is largely a set of recommendations. Why not go farther and put restrictions in place to get this under control? I think we certainly would prefer to have additional restrictions that we felt like they could be effective. In fact, the current safer at home order has restrictions on retail capacity on restaurants, including capacity in certain sanitation and hygiene practices. It continues to have some Physical distancing requirements related to groups and, frankly, we don't necessarily get the compliance. We would like to see. Even with the current orders in place. You're saying that you would put more restrictions in place if you felt like they could be effective. Other states have like closed bar's. For example, Alabama has not. Are you saying in order to close bars wouldn't be effective. I think in order to close bars would be effective in many ways, but not as effective, perhaps as things that I wish we could have done a few months ago. We ask a lot from the state. Originally with our stay at home order, and for the most part, people complied, but really at this point that the state does not really have An appetite for AA lot more restrictions. And you know, By the time I r stay home order was ready to be rescinded. We had quite a number of people who were flaunting the order. We have law enforcement. There was Had stated publicly they were not going to enforce the order. And frankly, it's very difficult. Tio help voters in place if they're going to be flooded. So just to make sure I understand you correctly. You're saying something like An order requiring people to wear masks instead of just recommending, which is the current state of play. An order requiring people to wear masks might be effective might save lives but would not be followed by people in Alabama. So there's no point in putting such an order in place. Is that right? No, I think it's very clear that orders to wear masks are not being followed in many cases already. What we learned is that we absolutely have to have local buy in support of local officials and local legislators. If we're going to have success with these orders, we have encouraged municipalities throughout the state to, for example, have mask ordinances, and in fact, many have and yet enforcement has been a big issue. So it's been very difficult to contemplate a health order that would apply to all parts of the state big and small. At the same time, Many mayors have said that they would have an easier time controlling local outbreaks if the state had a stronger response. I mean, they're saying you're kind of hang them out to dry here. No. Well, we're actually in Alabama are mayors actually have the authority to institute those orders? Any family would like And many of them how I think it's easy for them to blame the Health Department when it's actually within their ability to do that, if they would choose to do so. Another area where Alabama differs from state. Seeing spikes like California and Florida is that those states of closed beaches. Alabama has not. Why leave them open? I think closing beaches actually would help prevent transmission of disease. There's no question about that. And yet, as we begin to open things back up, regardless of the rules that are in place, we still have difficulty you have Inc from the public in many of those areas, so if it would be incredibly effective, I think that would certainly be something we would like to do. Just not convinced that would be the case. How does politics play into this? I mean, does the political will exists to do the things that need to be done to keep people in Alabama safe? I think it depends on what things you think need to be done. There's a lot of opposition to things that people feel like is an infringement of their personal liberties. It's very frustrating to us in public health. We feel like we have, you know the data to support what we want to do, and we're trying to make recommendations to keep people healthy. And yet, unfortunately, it feels like the science doesn't win the argument all the time. You know, depending on who we're discussing those with it's really kind of a mixed bag around the state. Dr. Scott Harris is the state health officer for the state of Alabama. Thank you for joining us today. Thank you for having me. To Boston. Now. That's where members of the Boston Art Commission voted unanimously last night to remove the city's copy of Thomas Balls, 18 76 Emancipation Memorial sculpture. It portrays a formerly enslaved man at the feet of Abraham Lincoln reporter Crystal Aguirre with NPR's member station W bur has more If the job of public art is to make an impact Boston artist story, Bullock says the perspective of the creator is equally important. Tuesday. He maintained that the sculpture of Lincoln and the newly liberated Man is a whitewash portrayal that denigrates an entire group of people. This is a frozen picture. This man is kneeling. He will never stand up. There is no other memorial in this city that requires viewers to fill in the blanks as to what's about to happen. Why us This image is problematic because it feeds into a narrative that black people need to be led and freed a narrative that seems very specific to us for some reason. Why is our traumas of glorified similar to the issues of Confederate memorials around the nation? The sculpture has been controversial for years. The original in D.

"art commission" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030

"Ah, a little bit of a breaking news story here with thanks to Mark Love alot. Our overnight producer. The city of Boston will remove the Emancipation Group statue following a vote by Boston Art Commission. That was apparently done tonight. That is the statute that we talked about. Ah, A couple of well, I guess a week ago. Prior to last week, Mayor Martin Walsh in the mayor's Office of Arts and Culture, Together with the Boston Art Commission today announced the Boston are commissions voted to remove the bronze figurative elements. Of the Emancipation Group statue from his location. Park Square. The statue with a copy of a statue in Washington, D C, created by Thomas Ball, has been criticized since the installation in 18 79 for its depiction of an enslaved man. I don't know. It's been criticized since 18 79. I think it's been criticized in the last couple of weeks. The Emancipation Group was a gift to the city by Moses Kimbo, a local politician. The statue depicts Abraham Lincoln, whose right hand rests on the Emancipation Proclamation has left his race and a gesture of benediction about the Crouch figure of Archer Alexander. A black man who assisted the Union Army escaped slavery and was recaptured under the Fugitive Slave Act. There's no inscription on the front of the piece that reads a race set free. There is an inscription a ray set free. In the country of peace, Lincoln rest from his labors so that statue will be removed. Um and they're going to AA. Headline here says they're going to Again. I'm having trouble getting up getting all of this here. B bust and called for a process of re contextualized ing the statute in a new setting. So, um, statue that has stood there for 18 79. The original statue was fate paid for by freed slaves, by the way, Ah Will be removed in Boston. So for the cancel culture that is a big victory tonight and Mark Little, Thanks for keeping us posted on that. Let's go to the phone 617 to 5 for 10 30. Tripoli. 9 to 9 10 30 We could started off this hour with John in Braintree. John in Braintree. How are you tonight? I'm doing okay, but I'm just kind of like everything that's going on now. It it It's just like I'm tossing my hands up in here and saying like, what is going on? I think a lot of people have that same question. Andi, I think that we are moving in a direction which is not going to be healthy. No, it's not. I mean, what I mean, I'm 2010 graduate from Braintree High, and they're just trying to change the all of a sudden because It's a representation. Heritage of Braintree. Off from that becomes race. The Braintree wants like what else like Then you've got these, uh, these lawyers They're getting their houses. Private community rated and there stand outside with their They're right in the property with firearms that they are legally allowed their own like and they're getting in trouble for that, like everything's just blowing my mind. It's crazy, and I am a millennial. I am a veteran, and it's everything is like I don't understand what's going on. Now you got these people ripping down statues when they don't even know the meaning of it. Half these people out. There are No, I can't think is I'm not one of us to go out there. But I just say someone I see on the Itself or, you know, the Where I watch TV on my phone or whether they will tell of it. It's all a bunch of people up there. White people raising their hands like I don't understand it any more. Well, I I think there's there's a group of folks out there who are very concerned about the treatment by some police officers, and that's wrong. I've had my fair experience with the police, and I'm not a fan of them and I don't Agree with. I do agree completely that the whole system needs reform. But what's going on out in the streets? That's not going to do it. No, I group and what I'm trying to what I'm trying to say is, I think that there's a lot of people out there who are out there for reasons that they perceived to be right Recent correct reasons. And then there are people out there who are taking it entered of this, and those people are again anarchists, people who sort of the refugees from the occupy Wall Street movement. That was pretty big in this country in the kind of the 11 12 6013 era. And they are looking to fundamentally change the country. They would like to live in a different type country. They want to change the country that you served in the military for And they weren't exchanged limit. Well, they want to live here, but they want to make this country more like North Korea or a communist China or the old Soviet Union. Where where freedom of thought freedom of expression, freedom of speech are limited. And they they want to, You know, they want to impose their set of values on other people, and they will either do it. They don't want to do it democratically, and they will do it by either force. Or or they will, they will try to intimidate people they try to intimidate the Boston City Council. We talked about last hour and here's the problem. I think was General Michael Flynn was quoted recently is saying that the problem is that 2% of the country who might be extremely passionate. Well, eventually, if, if not, you know, if left unchecked. Will rule the 98% of the country of people who are apathetic. So there's a lot there's a lot of people who are just trying to live their lives. Goto work Get their kids in school route for the Patriots. If there's ever football season all of that only my mom and dad, my family members, you know, normal, everyday people just trying to the thing. That's right. They just want to live their lives. But the problem is you've got folks out there now, who would really like to change the system of government in this country? I mean, we have a system of government, which is a democracy, which, you know. Ah, And sometimes we elect Republican presidents, and sometimes we elect Democratic presidents. You tell me that if you're you're probably 30 years of age or so correct. 28. Okay. So in your lifetime if I go back 28 years, you've had a Republican president in Donald Trump. You've had a Democratic president in Barack Obama. You've had AH, Republican President George Bush. And a AH, a Democratic president in Bill Clinton, so Democrat Republican Democrat Republican that's kind of the way it goes, and we could go back even further..

Fifty Years discussed on All Things Considered

"There may be life on the moon and humans may have put it there in April a failed lunar mission crash landed and spilled its cargo of a few thousand tardigrades tardigrades are tiny adorable to some and one of the toughest creatures around Daniel over house wrote about the failed lunar mission for wired magazine welcomed All Things Considered thank you for having me I'm embarrassed to say I'd never heard of a tardigrade before the story what are they so these are micro organisms there a little under a millimeter in size they have four legs I'm a lot of people think they look like bears hence the name out water bear they are found everywhere on earth from jungles to the top of the Himalayas to the Antarctic and as you mentioned they can survive pretty much any sort of environment I'm extremely hot temperatures to extremely cold temperatures they can survive in the vacuum of space they're pretty much indestructible and how did a few thousand of them potentially and up on the moon a nonprofit organization called the art commission foundation sent a lunar library to the surface of the man with the air she lander she lander this is an Israeli mission yes and on the slander there is a desk about the size of a DVD need of several ultra thin layers of nickel and sandwiched in between those layers of nickel are I in layers of a proxy that contained DNA from humans in the form of a from humans in the form of hair follicles and blood samples as well as several thousand tardigrades so the idea here was to in addition to all the digital information stored on the layers of nickel was to preserve our biology from earth and if the tardigrades did survive this crash landing are they still sandwiched in this kind of DVD type thing that's the hope and no one knows for sure they did some mathematical month modeling after the crash and determined that in all likelihood this this was actually probably the only thing that survived the crash so there's a pretty good chance at there are tardigrades on the moon does that matter I mean are they gonna like breed and take over the moon I I mean is is that some kind of moon pollution like a what what's what's the importance of this yes so there's no reason to worry about tardigrades becoming our lunar overlords anytime soon they are they're in a state of it's called crypto biosis which is where they actually I showed all the water in their cells they talk in their legs and they almost turn into a glass and they can last for decades in this form but they can't reproduce their metabolism all but stops so they're they're they're kind of live depending on your definition of life but and tell someone were to bring them back to earth they're not going to be moving around or do anything like that element okay so this seems relatively harmless but this was a privately funded lunar mission what's to stop some other billionaire from rationing something on the moon that's not as harmless as a tardigrade that could actually you know do real damage I think that's a concern for a lot of people the fortunate thing I suppose is that the man is considered a relatively low risk for this sort of thing when the Apollo astronauts went there fifty years ago they left dozens of bags of human excrement on the surface of the man so they were the first to actually leave DNA there but I think looking to the future this is something we need to discuss with private missions to places like Mars where introducing DNA into environment could potentially contaminated I the science that they wanted you to perhaps find traces of life so you know I think it's a great entry way for this discussion about who I get to determine what is placed on other celestial bodies well you know compared to bags of human excrement I think I would prefer a few thousand tardigrades reported in over how speaking with us on Skype he wrote about the possibility of tardigrades on the moon for wired magazine
