Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality
"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

Travel to Iowa
"I'd like to welcome to the show Sarah brewers from travel with Sara, dot com, and also mid west travel network, DOT COM and oddly enough we're going to talk about the mid West and specifically serious here to talk to us about Iowa Sarah Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. I'm excited to be here excellent well and I put out the. Word among my travel blogger brethren and written and I don't think that this thing put a couple of weeks ago and said, I've got three missing states I missing Iowa Nebraska and Hampshire, and at least one person I think it was more than one said if you want Iowa have to talk to Sarah and why is that? Sarah. What's the connection to Iowa? Well I live in Iowa. I have lived here all my life and I live on I will farm I'm married the neighbor boy in two thousand eight I started a blog and it was in two thousand thirteen that I really dove into the travel side of things. But the one thing that I realize is a lot of people didn't know a whole lot about the mid West or my home state of Iowa in. Most people don't realize that I will has beautiful cornfields and soybean fields we have that, but we have a lot of other amazing things and that's why you need to come to Iowa to visit and we're GONNA get into all of those today and I can't wait to share I. Clinical Slices a paradise will normally ask why someone should go I. Think you jumped into that one ahead of time anything else you would add to that I will surprise you I think the art, the culture, the scenic byways will blow you away. You could spend probably one home month exploring Iowa's scenic byways and I think that's pretty darn. Cool excellent will and where are you going to take us to what you're gonNA recommend where we starting. Well, let's start and do and. North, central. Iowa. Route, which is near where I live. I live near Mason. City. Mason. City Clear Lake and we're GONNA go to Charles City those three towns there, and then he can go up to forest city where you can see we're winnebago motorhomes are made. So you start in Mason city, Mason cities, a great base camp, and I would recommend that you stay in the park in hotel. The parking hotel is the last known hotel in the world designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Can stay there. Okay. People come from all over the world to Mason City Iowa population twenty six thousand something. So I have to Mason City, but I stayed in the holiday and see this is my mistake. You need to come back and see if the. I'll give you the grand old tour I. Didn't know he had designed any hotels. That's true. The first thing people say to me is Oh I don't think I could afford to stay there. and. I'm telling you that rooms at the Parken Hotel in Mason city. Iowa. Are Very affordable. I'm talking one twenty, nine to one, fifty, nine at night in a historic hotel. Designed by Frank Lloyd. Wright. I mean that is amazing. So when you're in Mason City, you want to do the river city's sculptures on parade, which is a sculpture walk, and it's always fun because I travel a lot and you know these artists that create these sculptures are all across America and maybe some of you've seen the Humpty dumpty sculpture that's around. I. Know I'M Thinking, the last place I saw one was in Mesa Arizona Okay I just have to take a Selfie with it because I'm like here's how you know Humpty kind of manages to be wherever I am but the sculptures are really a nice walk because they also take you through the Rock Glen area in Mason City, which is where there are other Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes. So is not only the hotel. There's other homes there as well and McKnight or art museum is a fantastic museum in town. They have the bayard puppets, Baird Marionettes, wizard of Oz the marionnettes that we're using the wizard of Oz are in the museum in Mason City and you can go across the street to Music Man Square we what puppets were in wizard of Oz are we talking about flying monkeys or what? Yes. Monkey is there okay it's a really Nice Museum but then you go across the street and you go to Meredith Wilson's boyhood. Home The music man. So, Meredith Wilson was born in Mason city. Iowa. And the Music Man Square has museum in there that is home to. Meredith Willson. So in the streetscape is in there and it looks just like in the movie, but you would envision it. So that's pretty cool. Meredith Willson he's also buried in Mason City and you know what? There's a lot of people that look for famous people were buried. You know who knew a lot of people cemetery tourism is kind of a big deal but then you go, let's go estimates saying you've already Charles City and get to Whitewater rafting most people don't think of Iowa and Whitewater rafting. And you can do that in Charles City Iowa. In Charles City I'm not sure eight, ten thousand people maybe. And you can stay in a luxury cabin there at red? Cedar.

Travel to Nebraska
"I like to welcome the show gene m from Nebraska, who has come to talk to us about her homestate Tino. Welcome to the show I. Thank you Chris and Gina I see from Nebraska. You'll live in Phoenix now. Does one ever get Nebraska out of their system after they move away so. Truly wants to Nebraska always. And Nebraska is one of only three states in the fifteen years the show we have not covered. So I've been really wanting to do this show I think for a while I have actually spent vacations in Nebraska. So why should someone go to Nebraska? Well, that is a great question and a lot of people when they hear I'm from Nebraska, asked me that question as well. So I think that the State Tourism Board. They just came out with a motto. That actually, maybe laugh the motto is Nebraska honestly it isn't for everyone. And so and then it goes into all of these awesome things that you can do Nebraska. But I think that someone who loves a good road trip likes to go off the beaten path maybe not as mainstream as some other areas that is who is going to love to go to Nebraska. Will and I should say that I have or have had at times for different podcasts and one of them was the passport travel marketing. NPR. PODCAST and if you go find that show, you can find an interview with the head of Nebraska tourism talking about that very motto in how It came about and and what they meant by it and that whole program. So. Excellent well, what kind of itinerary are you going to recommend for us? Well, I think that we should sorry in Omaha Nebraska which is the largest city you're gonna fly in here and you can fly pretty much any major airline into that airport. In also itinerary I should know is going to take place in the summer. So Nebraska has four seasons in the winter can be quite extreme and it's just not quite as fun. If you I mean it's beautiful but the weather is so extreme that I would definitely recommend during during the summer. So we're GONNA fly into Omaha, and we are going to stay in the old market area downtown. It's absolutely gorgeous. So you can go on some horsedrawn carriages you can see farmers markets on the weekends but. The main thing and Omaha is the Henner doorly zoo. So many times throughout the years it has been rated number one in the world and it's for good reason. So it has an aquarium that is also with the zoo and I truly don't think there's one thing there that is missing they are continuously I didn't on and I was actually just looking at the website and they actually have overnight experiences that families can do now which I think is really awesome.

Why Is There a Parthenon in Nashville?
"At first, no one expected the building to last. The Tennessee Centennial Exposition, which was something like a world's fair or Walt Disney world's epcot was held in Nashville in eighteen, ninety seven. It featured a full scale replica of the famous Parthenon from Greece the Plaster Parthenon. This plaster Parthenon which fit in with Nashville's ambition to be the Athens of the South housed an art exhibition over six months one point eight million people visited the exposition small when compared with the twenty, seven million, who turned out for the Chicago world's fair of Eighteen, ninety three, but huge for Nashville which, at the time had a population of one hundred thousand as a nineteen twenty one newspaper put it the general effect of the cream, colored staff structure with the brilliant colors, and the freeze and Gables, so overshadowed all the other buildings that when the exposition was over, the people demanded its preservation, and it became shrine to the residents and visitors of Nashville. But this shrine was not built for the long term by nineteen eighteen. The building had disintegrated so badly that it had to be closed for safety reasons, however, thanks to popular demand. The city decided to rebuild it. Isn't concrete structure in nineteen twenty. The Nashville Parthenon reopened to the public in nineteen thirty one. As with the Greek Parthenon, the columns on the Nashville structure are not completely straight, but have a slight convex curvature called emphasis. The corrects for an optical illusion that makes straight lines appear concave at a distance. The structure is also full friezes carvings, and includes a replica of the famous elgin marbles now known as the Parthenon Marbles. These marble structures were part of the original Parthenon, but were removed by the British earl of. And sold to the British Museum in Eighteen Sixteen, the entire transaction remains a point of dispute between Britain and Greece. And while the original Parthenon is in a ruin, the national version features the complete structure. A builders made educated guesses to fill in the parts. At the time of its reopening in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, the only thing missing from this replica Parthenon was a statue of the Greek Goddess Fina. But after twenty years of small contributions from the public via a donation box at the site plus some private funding, there was enough money to commission a forty two foot. That's thirteen meter statue, the same size as the original. Tennessee sculptor Alan require to eight years to finish the mass of work, which was unveiled in nineteen ninety, and features a spear that was crafted with McDonald's flagpole is the sturdy core for twelve years. The statue stood in plain white gypsum cement, but in two thousand and two it was gilded in real gold, although some people have complained that the gilding makes Gaudy, it's actually more historically accurate. Nashville Parthenon still serves as the city's art. Museum and it's permanent.

We had been thinking a lot. About what something we could do to bring. These works into the homes of people all around so that they could experience the artwork make it personal and really revel in these masterpieces from the convenience of their own home so we rolled out an augmented reality APP and feature that. Make it possible to bring these paintings into every single room in your home that you can see the works right up close in person so this first of all the name of the APP is the name of the APP is art museum. Ar T. Museum and it's available on Ios Ios and android right now it's available on Ios. But we do have plans to make it available for android devices as well. Okay so now.

Of course we would never charge for something like that. Were very strongly believed that art should be accessible on. There shouldn't be an economic or financial barrier to this and we've also made this component free and available to the museum community so we're been rolling it out and in talks with dozens of organizations around the country around the world about how things like.

Cathy Carter reports from saint-petersburg Decoloni- sits atop a building best known for its works of art. Beekeeper Matt Davis Best Walk Something of a labyrinth to get to the rooftop apiary at the Museum of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg I he climbs a set of stairs then passes a gallery of boldly covered canvasses then walks down a whole series of hallways when he reaches the Museums Mechanical Room. He opens a padlock on the door. Ducks under a few pipes. Walks outside and scrambles up a steel ladder on the south side of the. MFA's roof are eight white. Be Boxes oxes. Each high is home to about twenty to thirty thousand honeybees. Davis says from Bill Bennett Point. The bees will have plenty of pollen and nectar to consume. They will be forging on palm trees and different ornamental. Flowers that people plant in their yards. Big thing going right now is the Brazilian pepper. It's an invasive supplant but the bees do really well with it and Spanish needle is a little white flower with a yellow center grows as a weed. Here it's very important for these as it turns out. It's not all that unusual for the Museum of fine arts to embrace. This trend museums from Paris to Chicago have similar rooftop apiaries Kristin Shepard Bird the executive director of the FA previously worked in cities with museums that had beehives including the Los Angeles County Museum of art and at the Whitney Museum of Art Art in New York City. We did keep bees on the roof and we harvested the honey. And it's something that I was intent on bringing to the Museum of Fine Arts when I arrived about two and a half up years ago but the MFA isn't just hosting the beehives and calling it a day. They do eventually plan on selling honey in the gift shop and using it as an ingredient at the Museum Liam Cafe Shepherd enter staff have also created a whole series of honeybee inspire programs in November. There's Van Call Bugs giving that will feature a New York City chef have presenting eight ten plate tasting menu using insects as ingredients. There are B related programs for kids and several lectures on the schedule to and it's really wonderful for us to help educate our community about the decline in the bee population and how important bees are and right now.

Natalia Lima gave up eating animal products eight years ago but she did not plan to swear off dessert after one two many dry tasteless vegan hates this self todd. Baker founded curious cat bakery which sells cookies cupcakes. Truffles and desserts minus the eggs. Milk and butter Italia is also a fan of the great British baking show known in the UK as the Great British baseball during the currencies of the competition and show. Natalia is selecting one dish from each episode to Vegan is her self imposed challenge has been featured on the popular Vegan website veg news it's also causing a stir on her instagram page at curious cat bakery or each week she post the results zest producer delete Cologne own met up with Natalia in Saint Petersburg at the commercial kitchen where she bakes Natalia Lima and I'm the founder and owner of the curious cat bakery. What's the deal with this? Great British bake off challenge. So I've been watching the show for years and I love it and I find it so inspiring and I knew when season ten came came out that I wasn't going to be the only one watching so I thought wouldn't it be fun to take all of these challenges that have eggs and milk and butter milk and all these things that Aren Vegan in and transform transform them into Vegan recipes. So I put that on instagram and people were all about it so then. Every week I've been Vegan is a challenge. Enj- talk me through week by week. What the challenge was for the contestants and how you Vegan is it so I started with bread week and that was the cinnamon woman roles and that was interesting because that was my first time making cinnamon rolls and came out super? Well then came dairy week. And that's the key that we're making today was a yogurt cake. Take a one thousand nine hundred twenty s week I made a chocolate orange tart with custard which was really interesting because custard when you have exit exit. You Bake it in the oven but for Vegan custard. You make it on the stove top. So it's a little different desserts. Week was probably the most convoluted of them. All I did did steffes chocolate bomb. which is this is desert that had a chocolate Mousse and above Wa in a justice? Is this glaze. It was so many steps but it was so good. My neighbors really happy because I can't eat all this so I just give it away for my neighbors they loved the then came festivals week. I did a Henry's Cardamon buns. Those were so good with some coffee or team and then just just now. I did pastry week which was initially a disaster and then a success and I did Rosie's vegetable tarata talk and that was really good. That sounds amazing. What would you say was the most difficult week the most difficult week not surprisingly to anyone? Who bakes the puff pastry? You're doing this in Florida where it's hot and humid and you need to keep that butter really cold and it was my first time making puff pastry and I joked around and I said that if I was on the show I would have been sent home crying over soggy bottom because the first time around it just did not pan out. It was very sad. It was very defeated. But then I got my stuff together. Brainstorm the solution and the second time around and came out. Okay what are we making today. So today we're making a dairy weeks yogurt cake so the challenge was to do a cake with a culture dairy product so in the end I had to sub out the dairy yogurt of course. But it's still a cultured yogurt. I am really excited for this. Can you talk us through what goes into making the cake. Since we don't have eggs. You need something that's going to glue it all together. So that's where the cornstarch comes in. It's really going to bring all all of the ingredients together. It makes make stick so you don't need eggs to do a cake no matter what you've been told you really upsetting some apple cards with that bit of information so we have. All of the dry ingredients makes thin over here and then on another bowl. You'RE GONNA put all your wedding gradients plus the sugar. So you're GONNA zest to lemons smelling that lemon off so bright good. Yeah when she started testing. You really get that smell and it's so good and then we're gonNA use the juice from these lemon so nothing goes to waste. which is Great? We're told from a young age like if you ask a kid to describe how cake is done. They're going to say eggs and milk and all of these things. But I'm hoping that by showing people that you can actually make this without those ingredients and you have to get creative and know that in the end of the day. Baking is chemistry and if you substitute some of those ingredients you're still going to have that chemical core reaction that makes a cake a cake. Love it okay. So you've got your best and then we're going to have the juice from the lemon so we got.

"We're back i'm talking with monique engineer he's the chief technology officer at seattle art museum first time they've ever had a cto okay let me address the naming elephant in the room yeah did you take the job because of your last name or did you change your last name or how much grief you get because your last name maps to your job i it's actually pretty difficult yes my last name is engineer if anything i always have to explain people that that's my really like is my last name people think i've got fake job resume that i'm you know it's a template resume like john software or something so i always have to put in the cover letter yes this is my real name don't throw it away it's not junk mail and so if anything it's a hurdle to kind of get it especially in an arts organization well hopefully it's not frequently misspelled but it might now no it's okay that's the other funny part is as you know we were chatting before people always think that there's some exotic pronounciation like own junior or something and it's like now it's just engineer well technology which of course ties very nicely into that obviously the technology in art isn't always inside the art museum right google has its arts and culture up at highlights museum collections sam is not a part of that one at this point but i'm curious you know there's a lot of people trying to bring art outside of museums who aren't with museums like google what's the cto's role in cases like this arts and culture app and dealing with some of these tech it's well you know i think it's great for all of us because you know as kind of saying earlier you know we don't have big pockets but these these companies have you know.

"Art and kind of pointing out things that that couldn't be shown in in the room physically and what kind of form might that take yes i think like the the website is often a good platform for that one of the really great things about momo when i was there was that they viewed the museum of modern art in new york as three locations the main moma and then their ps one their contemporary space and then the website and so they thought of the museum as three spots but the website had as equal importance as her physical space and so when they were creating content and when they were deploying an exhibition the website had a lot of prominence and they really work with the artists are really put up information there and i think that really helped it made the website kind of a place for discovery and additional information and education and maybe people who couldn't visit the museum could go there and just learn about the exhibition i'm talking with nisha engineer chief technology officer of seattle art museum when we come back we're going to talk about working with non museum tech giant's you're listening to geekwire we'll be right back after a break this geekwire podcast is brought to you by permira blue cross we sat down with torben nielsen premier as vice president of innovation and strategic investments to talk about the premiera chat bot developed in partnership with microsoft we call on scouts a with scout you could ask a whim i ant with my deductibles or am i eligible for particular procedure those some of the use cases and we're solving full right now and we'll be launching over the next few months and as we learn from our members how they engage with scout of usually scout becomes more and more intelligent as part of the machine learning process and that's part of the expertise that we partnering with microsoft on learn more about technology and innovation at premera blue cross at premera dot com slash innovation that's p r e m e r a dot com slash innovation.

"Huge infrastructure of wi fi internet needs that people can log into so just kind of maintaining all those infrastructure needs but yeah they must on the one the big misconceptions that there's just a are in vr type were going on mixed reality and that's kind of where art is going but i think there's a lot of other things that go to kind of keep their ship running so so basically when people think about displays they just think about that they don't think about other things that technology might enhance in terms of an art museum exhibit exactly yes what about the audio guide i mean a lot of people like the most overt thing people think about when they go to an art museum and technology and it's evolved over the years it has and i think that's one of the biggest kind of contested or discussed topics if you go to any of these museum conferences you you'll hear just different viewpoint so here every museum around the world trying different things out everything from the old here's a number on the wall and you dial that number and get more information about it to augmented reality where you have a phone and you point your camera to the work of art and will then show additional information on the painting bubby arrows pointing to maybe where the artists painted over a may show like an xray of something on the backside on things like that are really neat and so yes it's of constantly evolving but there's always the discussion because a lot of those a our apps they require a app to download and that requires a conversion so you have to get some money museum gotta get them to download this app then you gotta get them to bring up this work of art and so that's a little bit a tricky thing to balance i guess where is sam right now on that spectrum of the from the old style to the sort of cutting edge i i wouldn't even frame it as old style so we kind of do everything we do both and we find that you know the dial the number part works really well keep it simple why over engineer you know y you know the whole astronaut pen versus a pencil if the pencils working fine now let's just keep going with it but we also work with third parties there's this.
