Parents who want schools reopened risk putting themselves before their kids

"Sociologist and professor of education and public policy at U. C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Education. Hey, is an authorities written a couple books, standardized childhood and organizing locally. Speaking of books, Bruce, are you going? I know you're in the midst of your writing another book, but it's not on this top topic. Isn't this really something that someone should be writing a book on? Oh, for sure, It's Ah, It's a right area for Her research and lay foundations and others. You're trying to get some research up on going to really document In part, the inequalities that had built in the online instruction You know, before we talk to talk about that I do want to talk about the inequalities because I know you've done a lot of work on that and and you know, it's hard for me. I really identify why don't but I would like to identify with inner city kids who parents who have a really difficult time. I understand. I'm very fortunate in that regard, but others are less fortunate, and they have a lot of issues that they're facing. But talk a little bit about what you've done. Commented on in some of these pieces about the attention to child care, academic supervision for low income families and how the unhappiness and anxiety of parents will in fact, maybe Permanently. Hurt the development of kids. Well, I think is all parents know, Alan. Our kids are super sensitive to the stress and anxiety in the home. Especially younger kids say through fourth or fifth grade, but even adolescence or hyper sensitive to how they're parents you're doing you know whether In a one parent's divorce when parents with childcare arrangements cancels their job. Congress is deadlocked over unemployment protection. So in time of benefits, maybe running out in the next couple weeks on the problem is that the stress, of course, is most intense and working class. Household so Not only do we have kids that are trying to figure out what to do during the day and how detective teachers but we have terrorists under You know, suffering enormous anxiety and pressure. Some have to get to work to risk their own health. Some as we've seen in the papers, some get Corona virus come home sick. And then and then have to lose their jobs. And all those stressors buildup and that really set skins back emotionally and socially and They start to turn off start employing from online instruction. So I mean, this agreement is nice. It's it's better than the spring, but it doesn't provide child care for parents. It doesn't provide relief for parents who need to get back to their jobs. And it's a deeper structural problems facing blue calling parents especially They're really going to start to drag down kids on Dwyane achievement gaps and social developmental disparities. Yeah, I was going to ask you about that. But I mean, if this continues throughout the year How many kids are going to need to repeat this year? How many kids are goingto possibly need to repeat the year before? I mean, this is his going there. It seems like this is good. This might be a massive problem. A lot, And that's why I think we've got a experiment in small charters or small private schools carried to see how we get out of this hole because You know better off families. Khun can finance learning pods they can hire college students is tutors, but You called her parents trying to get back to the mechanic jobs or they're nursing assistant jobs. These air folks who don't have many options, and if their kids falsehoods and certainly behind, it's going to close off college opportunities are not able to graduate from high school. So I'm sympathetic with the unions who want to be super cautious about Teacher's going back to school. But the costs are going to be mounting for the families and kids, and we've got a way that I think more heavily than we have in recent months. And what about socialization? What can we do? In order to try and avoid some of the detrimental effects that we know occur when kids don't have for especially younger ones. You know, I know, For instance, my kids they really haven't had a whole lot of play dates of Fanny. They haven't been able to socialize. It's got to have an impact. What do we do? Oh, yeah. And I think that's what this learning pot idea. Alan is picking up speed. It's it's going to create inequalities, but you got to sympathize. With parents like yourself. Who's kids? They're just not They're not making any friendships. They're not working. You know, morning howto work out problems with their peers. They're not enjoying the joy of, you know, being in school out in the playground. And that lack of emotional support and Emotional wonder Munch. You know that that's so much part of childhood and that's goingto Nita mounting disparities as well. So I think we have to find ways of expanding our pods hanging out with our cousins, You know, figuring out who's been Most unhealthy for a number of weeks and then trying to engineer these get togethers for kids because All learning is built upon a strong emotional base. If that starts to crack its biggest section on kids running on the society as a whole

"Who other than reporter just plot check could take on this not safe for work assignment off she goes from. The state of California has indecent exposure laws, but those only apply if someone is being sexual like masturbating in public or intentionally offensive flashing someone. But what if you're just hanging out naked minding your own business? California leaves that up to local governments. For the first half of the Twentieth Century San Francisco didn't have public nudity laws. FRISKIN S- just didn't go nude much but then the sixties arrived and with it naked people. Some saw disrobing as a form of political artistic or personal expression college students got a taste for streaking and then there were the hippies. It's just delightful to be in I'll be in and that's what this is another exotic prank to add to a growing list of student oriented rites of Spring. It's sort of a happy happening for hippies in San Francisco hippies wanted to get closer to nature and they got naked a lot in golden gate park. Here's a quote from police chief. Thomas Hill it wasn't uncommon for a Gal that come out of the bushes there in the. Panhandle. Without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with our hands up. I was out in the park in two started going to it on the lawn beside me just to remind you sex is sexual and as such already illegal according to the state. But still conservatives wanted tougher local laws to prevent this kind of behavior and they eventually got nudity banned in the parks. However, the rest of San Francisco was still fair game. As time passed other cities made public nudity illegal among them, San Jose, and Berkeley Berkeley's interesting because it's been mostly due to one naked Guy Andrew Martinez a student at the University of California Berkeley. Decided that American society is sexually repressed and in an effort to write things he began attending classes and going everywhere else in the nude save for a pair of sandals backpack people theorized that Martinez was able to go nude without major complaint for so long because he was easy on the is Martinez attempted shock tactic soon, became old news among his fellow students to me was simply the naked guy. Administrators however sent Martinez home to stay warm until his case can be considered by a student conduct board in Nineteen ninety-two Martinez was expelled showed up naked to his disciplinary hearing at UC. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three here arrived naked to a Berkeley city council meeting members were offended and voted to make public nudity a misdemeanor crime.

Nazis Stole Thousands Of Musical Instruments. Where Are They?

"The Nazi plunder of Jewish owned artwork in Europe during World War two is well known, but the Nazis Also looted thousands of musical instruments from Jews. A conference of researchers in Paris discussed this looting. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley was there, and she sent this report in the spring of 1945 with Paris liberated, but the war in Europe not yet over, French officials announced that hundreds of stolen pianos would be exhibited in three warehouses. French archivist Caroline Picket, E says those who'd lost an instrument were invited to write letters to make an appointment to take offence. You know, you know, I was astounded to find their pianos and so many Jewish homes, even the most modest ones for Taylor's in corset makers. These families were not well off, but they had a taste for music. Families before the war played the classics, says P. Getty Show Palm Mo's art and popular tunes of the day. Musician and historian Vellum. Jeffries has written what's considered the defining work on the Nazi pillaging of musical life in Western Europe, he says. Around 1935 the Nazis started documenting European Jews holdings in art, literature and music. So where Germany faded. Crams it May title 40. They're already commandos ready to seize and steal all the cultural things off youth in France. They emptied. The apartments of prominent musicians who had fled. The next wave of plundering came with the deportation of ordinary Jews beginning in 1942. It's really a very sophisticated personalization the Jews, of course, sent to concentration camps in their processions. Were catalogs and inventoried and systematically sense to mainly German people has had several strong The Allied bombings. Both Defreeze and Picket E were at the Paris gathering of scholars. So was Carla Shop pro who teaches law and European studies at the University of California, Berkeley. A pro, says there are families still looking for their instruments. But the work is difficult because the documentation is so scattered. Every nation has records. There's many, many different bodies of records. And went out looking at all of those and seeing their interconnections.

'Pandemic Pods' Raise Concerns About Equity

"Right now, most public school district's around the country are not going to open up full time in person this fall. And that means most working parents are in a tough spot. Families with extra money have come up with a work around. They are rebooting the concept of the one room school house. You could call it a pandemic pod. And as you can imagine, this has inflamed the debate over in equality and opportunity. NPR's Anya Kamenetz has been reporting on the phenomenon and she joins us now. Hey, Anya. Hey, Ari, Explain this concept. What is a pandemic pod, So the basic idea is, you know, kids want to socialize safely with a small group of other kids. Parents need to share the cost of child care Supervisor of learning. And so you get together a pretty small group for safety reasons. Maybe five or six kids total, and this has been exploding. If you go on Facebook in any major city, there's a Facebook group mostly of Mom's trying to arrange these pods and do the matchmaking. Sounds like a good creative solution for people who can afford it. But where does it leave everybody else? Well, you know, One thing that's raised some hackles is that there are pods that have hired teachers away from the school system actually to be tutors. And in other cases, people are just kind of pointing out the irony that here we are, in the midst of a national conversation about racial equity, and a group of families who have relative privilege are busily constructing solutions for their own kids that leave everyone else behind. And Anya. I understand you have been talking with the leader of one of those local groups. That's right. Well, let's listen to your report. Having Kerbel is the founder of the Seattle area Facebook group for what he calls pandemic here. A nano schools. Like so many parents. He's impossible pickle of childcare, panting and schooling while doing their sensible job. Kerbel wants his Children to be able to play safely with a few other kids and to learn subjects like math and science. Hands on, not just on the computer. He wants to tomatoes and some flowers and each kid biology and bro thing, So he started this Facebook group to find other families who were interested in doing the same thing. There is now over 4000 members in the Seattle area Pandemic Pod. Matchmaking groups like these have sprung up quickly all over the country, and the critiques have come. Justus Fast and furious. In Oakland, California, a group of 20 public school principals signed an open letter this week criticizing the practice is pandemic driven opportunity. Linda Anderson is a journalist covering education and equity opportunity. Hoarding is a sociological concept that basically means a group in power is grabbing a pre sources and excluding a less powerful group. Anderson says. Parents form a pendant pods and micro schools did not create school inequalities, but they're certainly exacerbating inequalities by speaking on option unavailable, everyone. I think parents are just trying to do what they have to do to survive in this moment, Prudence Carter, the dean of the School of education at the University of California, Berkeley. Sees pandemic pods is a case of parents black like herself or white, richer or more working class, basically improvising Carter studies, inequality and education and as the single mother of a six year old boy she's thinking about forming a pandemic pod so she can get more concentrated work done, and also for social and emotional reasons. My child is crying as an only child. I miss my friends. At the same time as a scholar. I'm thinking a lot about how to minimize the impact of privilege, particularly class privilege on Children learning. Another idea to address equity concerns is to have each pod include a scholarship spot. I am not interested in the privatization of public education and they're coming in alternative. Ivanka Bell says He's trying to institute a rule in his Seattle group. If you have a group of orchids reported, is free. You have a group of five kids industry. For example, Kerbel says he's planning to set up ukulele lessons for his five year old son. He's in touch with local refugee resettlement agency to see if a Somali refugee child is able to join. Carter cautions that pods that include a diversity slot also have to work hard to be inclusive. So my question would be what are you going to do, socially and culturally to make sure Different style still deeply included Kerbel his personal experience with this when he immigrated from Eastern Europe as a child, barely speaking English, a classmate was assigned to be his friend. And he remembers feeling grateful for that. He says he feels that our Children are going to learn not only the math or music, we try to teach them right now, but also directly from the choices we make. How did their parents respond to the endemic? Did they wide in their social circle that they brought in their horizons? Or did they just, you know, sort of hunker down and you know, should the rest of the world out. That

Are Banks Safe?

"Month they had several plus members. Share an article with me. That was published in the Atlantic titled Becoming Bank Collapse. The subtitle was the US. Banking System could be on the cusp of calamity this time. We might not be able to save it. Article was written by Frank Partnoy. He's a law professor at UC Berkeley. That's a pretty ominous title. We WanNa look at the article as well as the state of US banks and banks around the world. Should we be worried given the pandemic is the banking system poised to collapse. I was especially interested in the article, because it came out right after I had increased my allocation to stocks and added a preferred stock et after the money for the rest of US plus model portfolios. The particular preferred stock after us by shares has about twenty six percent allocated to banks and banks are on the cusp of this calamity that does not bode well for preferred stocks. In the article, Partnoy is particularly worried about banks exposures to an esoteric security. A collateralized loan, obligation or see Elo. We Discussed Sea Ellos back in episode two six in May twenty eighteen. collateralized loan obligations are asset backed securities issued by special purpose vehicles or s peeves. The S P V purchases leveraged loans which are non investment grade bank loans that have been syndicated. A, bank will make a loan to a Non Investment Grade Company, a higher risk company and then sell that loan into the marketplace. Many of those purchasers are Clo's is over a trillion dollars of leveraged loans outstanding. and. Most are held as part of these collateralized loan obligation structures. The way it works. Is that s? Cells, debt and equity securities that comprise to see yellow. Those securities are backed or collateralized by the leveraged loans. The CEELO has multiple layers tranches that are sold separately. The debt layers are rated by credit quality, so the senior layer is triple A.. There are lower rated debt layers known as mezzanine layers, and then there's an equity layer which is unrated. The payments on the underlying leverage loans, those payments are pooled together and flow in order. The first payments go to the senior AAA layer then to the lower rated layers, and then finally to the equity layer. That is known as they waterfall. The debt tranches are over collateralized debt ACL Oh might have issued five hundred million dollars in debt securities as part of the L O that are backed by six hundred and twenty five Million Dollars Worth of leveraged loans with the Additional One, hundred, twenty, five million in loans funded from selling the equity trunch. Each Cielo about one hundred and fifty to two hundred and twenty-five loans. And because the leverage loans, themselves are floating rate notes. Their interest rates will fluctuate as short term. Interest rates change the debt tranches within a cll are also floating rate, so there's some protection if interest rates rise. Now because of this waterfall structure, the equity tranches takes the first losses, then the lower rated debt tranches, and finally if it gets to that this senior triple, a. rated debt trench suffered losses. That hasn't happened before. The SNP does a global Cielo report looking at default rates. From Nineteen ninety-six to twenty, eight eighteen overall default rates for CEELO's was zero point five percent. The worst vintage year was sea ellos issued in two thousand eight. there. The default rate was one point seven percent. There have been no defaults in CEELO's issued between two thousand, nine and two thousand eighteen. And from that one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two thousand eighteen period, there has never been a default for the triple eight trunch, and only one default for the AA trunch. Now as you know, we are in a pandemic and defaults within the High Yield Bond and leveraged loan space is increasing. Fitch estimates the twelve month default on leveraged loans is four percent, and that more than two hundred billion dollars of leveraged loans will default through year end twenty, twenty one. Adequate to a two year cumulative default rate of fifteen percent. Just because leverage loans are defaulting doesn't mean all the different tranches of a coo is experiencing a default. So a report on the wall, Street Journal from mid May that showed about ten percent of Cielo managers have been diverting cash flow away from equity investors and going to the debt tranches, which means there have been default that are starting to impact that junior equity trunch. What is different from this cycle, though is leveraged, loans are more risky and we discussed that in episode to a six. The covenants on these loans are less restrictive. The credit quality is lower. The financials are weaker and so we should expect defaults to increase. Question is will see a low default and other defaults and other loans impact banks to where we should be worried about our savings or investments that we might have in banks. In banks securities. Including their common stock and their preferred stock.

Striving For Justice with Quoc To

"Can you elaborate on this dream job thing I like. How and when did you dream of becoming a public defender? Like what does the story behind? I I mean. First of all I. It wasn't my dream job so much when we worked together prevention student comedy night. I I knew I wanted to do something social justice related At Ti we? We worked on one of the things that work. There was violence prevention, and that actually got me started on like looking at took one of the classes that. Are exactly record started their violence prevention as a public health issue, and so I just. Looking at looking at that and thinking I wanted to do something within the community I grew up in a poor underserved community community caller. You know a refugee we. We came over America on a refugee resettlement You know plan and I grew up in A. Poor, community stalled pitfalls of crime and I mean pitfalls, poverty and homelessness in lack of social services, and what does the? How that intertwined with you know criminal justice. Actually I haven't really shared this a with a lot of people, but in college. I don't know if you remember, but about. About like a a couple of weeks before the end of my second year I think that was your senior year. one of my fraternity mates got killed outside of our house I think it's like it was huge news at Berkeley right like profits class in nuclear engineering. Really I don't remember I apologize. There's there's a lot from my past. That's a blurb, but yeah. Yeah, yeah, so he was. He was stabbed outside Sigma Pi. And I was I was like there. I had seen him like minutes before that. So the trial unravelled a over the next couple of years and. It slowly some. If some of my about this podcast is GONNA be like! Wow, we didn't even know this, but you know when I was sitting in the through a case and going through that case I felt this. Kid You know when I learned more about it turns out like he was. Small was unemployed. She works for nonprofit. Is that I? Think was like construction work, but you either way. They came from a working class. Family went to public schools he went to. Berkeley High School nearby. And I sitting in that courtroom I kind of felt more. I felt like I empathize with him. You know 'cause he he. He reminded me of you know the people kids grew up with You Know An. Myself came through the environment and I know that I'm very fortunate to be where I'm at You know I you make your own luck, but a lot of it is you catch outbreaks along the way and I kind of was keenly aware of how close I was from not being at Berkeley, not being where I was. You know and so. I I couldn't help feel empathy for him, and so it kind of made me like. You know I wanted justice for my. My friend, who was killed tragically, but I I also felt like his kids GonNa. he kills one drunken site. Right and so I was like it gets convicted. He goes to prison. Justice just felt elusive, really lucid to me and I think that was experience was very transformative for me especially with my background everything that was going on knowing. Justice and so. You know I got to law school and I actually was recruited to help. Run A campaign for my one of my mentors. Ru Training is a form of public County new has private practice now. was running for DA and so if. I. Don't know people pay attention, but the recent election Cisco They elected a yes boden from the San Francisco, public office, but he wasn't I poetry a run for DA And so he ran. He ran for da I manage his campaign. Obviously lost George, GASCON Wanda year and but just being with him. Just he was like you know. I was working at A. A firm that summer I was out wasn't happy on civil, a civil work and I just wasn't happy. And like you got for public office and so I did. And I the next semester. A you know got got internship at Contra Costa Public Office and I fell over the work it just was. It was like this is what I WANNA do this. Would you know what to do and? Yet at the rest is history. That's. I mean. I'm very I've just having a moment just reflecting on How are passing cross? You know in in these ways enlightening, bring Larry and stuff, and like all the craziness of life in Prevention Institute essentially couple years older than you by essentially babies like really working on a on a very big trajectory that we had no idea what was about to happen, but it's I feel really I don't mean it patronizing me just so proud of you. That's audible and. It's not a small undertaking I mean like. Any any endeavor, especially dream because there's a lot of layers to that because I think be these big visions that we can have, I can feel very like. Larger than life, but like you actually went out and did it so i. just really proud of you. That's amazing

The Science of Happiness

"This episode at this fraud moment in our history. We're bringing on a leading scientists to help us tackle one of the most pernicious misconceptions that humans have ever fostered. The, very roots of the word happiness reflect our assumption that happiness is something that happens to us rather than something that we can actually cultivate for ourselves HAP- ha. That's the same root of such words as hapless or haphazard, it implies luck. But again, happiness is actually a skill that we can cultivate. Emiliana. Simon Thomas Helps people learn this. Kill themselves. She got an online course called the science of happiness that has reached more than half a million people across the world. She's the science director of the Greater Good Science Center at UC, Berkeley and in this interview we discuss how to make ourselves happier through generosity, which is literally part of our biology. How the pleasure of caring for other people means we'll do it again. How empathy fatigue however is real, and then we debate a little bit the meaning of selfishness, and how we've got love wrong. Before we dive in I wanNA, flag that this is a conversation. We recorded late last year prior to the pandemic and the recent racial justice protests here in America, but the insights in this interview are as vital as ever so here we go with Emiliana Simon Thomas. Nice to meet you in person I don't know if you remember this, but when I was writing Timpson, happier I used to call you to make sure I was correct on my research on a few things I do remember that, but it was a long time ago and I'm glad I was able to be helpful. That was just going to say. My memory was that you were really helpful. It's always willing to hop on the phone, so thank you belatedly. You're quite welcome. It's a pleasure as a pleasure to have you on the show your parents were Buddhists while so my parents grew up in the Midwest and one of them came. Came from an Italian family and the other Irish family, and they were not Buddhists as young people, but I think they're sort of early life. Spiritual experience left something to be desired for them, and they wanted to see the world in a different way, and they. You know got in a car with their. You know minimal belongings and came to California and as young people here they found a community and that community where people for the Buddhist leaning and yes, so I grew up going to teachings to temples I. Remember kind of crawling all over my parents while they were sitting still and you know keeping this sorta serene demeanor. I remember China. Take the sweets off of the altar. I think that's a no no. And I heard that when you would throw tantrums over not getting enough desert, your parents would say life is suffering yeah. I don't know. The Buddha would've. Would've. Doors the usage of his signature phrase. I totally agree it's a little hard on a little kid, but you know I fought back and in a strange way it's fueled this lifelong quest for understanding like real happiness in life, so so what? HOW WOULD NOT GETTING ENOUGH DESERT? Play into understanding real happy you know I just didn't buy the notion that we had to always look through a lens of the potential for harm or disappointment or let down and I think that was the message I was getting the. Hey, you know I. Don't get enough. Dessert. I didn't get as much of a toy as someone else got. Or you know we don't have as nice of a house as someone else. Then even those people in their comforts are probably disappointed by various things in their lives and struggling in ways that I can't imagine I don't think. I picked all that up. Though I was like. No sometimes I feel great. You know sometimes I'm having so much fun I can't even like. Hold of myself and just laughter and excitement and I'm not suffering in those moments. How do you define compassion so to find compassion? When I was studying in the laboratory had to find it in an emotional way. It was a specific state. It was the experience that you have when you encounter suffering can be in person or even in your mind, you think about some suffering, and you feel the urge, and you have an intention to do something about it to help to alleviate the suffering that you encounter. That's the experience of compassion as an emotion, so that separates it from empathy, which is yeah, misses the action. Yeah, I mean empathy, I think of as kind of necessary, but not sufficient for compassion, and but the is really more simple, and it is our ability to resonate with each other and our ability to understand the meaning of a another person's emotional expressions, but if If, you only have empathy. You have a lot of other paths. You can go down. That are not compassion, right? You can feel distressed yourself. You can feel Oh, I'm overwhelmed. There's I'm upset in in in being confronted with the suffering, you can kind of suppress any emotional experience that you have. That is sort of mirrored from another person and sort of look apathetic. Kind of Mandra down the road towards compassion, and that means you're not really thinking about yourself anymore, right? You're not focused on the potential for something to threaten you or the extent to which your physical experience is recognizable or familiar as your own pain or suffering, but you sorta channel whatever whatever feeling you have into activating your care, nurturance systems right you're. You're actually orienting yourself as a care provider as a nurture rather than sort of frenetically worried about the possibility that something could go wrong in in your own right.

Tiz The Law Owner Jack Knowlton On Belmont Win

"Will here it is Jack Knowlton visiting with Anthony's to bill on. Red Brand radio. Congratulations on a fantastic win. A lot of people feel like it was seventeen years in the making my friend. Well we finally got our triple. Crown for Sakho Toga for Barclay tag and took us two horses and seventeen years, but from what I understand. It's still kind of fight for Barclay There aren't a lot of trainers at You know is one three legs of the triple crown in recent years. Yeah and you know you guys together. Seventeen years apart, and with New York breads and I know that's the. The mantra over attack a Toga. You guys support that program as well as anyone. Well I was pretty fascinated to learn that it was one hundred thirty eight years since the new. York breaded, won the. Belmont stakes now I know a lot of people are going to say well, then really count you know at you know. It wasn't a mile and a half and Yada, Yada but. In my mind, anybody who watched that race, who questions who would have won that race? It has been a mile and a half. I think the outcome would have been exactly the same as it was at amendment eight. And, Barkley had gone on record is before the race saying you know I would have liked a mile and a half of the source, and he's a horse again. New York Brad and that's what you guys do, you? You've been high on this horse from day one. Well. I watched them train at Saratoga. I mean you're up there and I'd go over at six o'clock in the morning 'cause. That was a time of day that Berkeley landed of track. It was almost darker. She got near the end of the need of what's dark. And not only did he. You know have a good works, and you know work quickly, not crazy fast, but you know good works. But the way he galloped out, I mean they couldn't pull him up. He goes around the second turn. After you know going, pass the finish line and writers just added tremendously difficult time pulling them up junior. Alvarado was riding. Mine is is raised back then, and when I saw that we went into a first range of six and a half furlong maiden mates for New York. Badge I really had a lot of confidence and He's lived up to it so one little bump in a road when he got stuck down inside and the worst part of the race track and Kentucky Jockey Club At. The end of November other than that He really has been flawless. Yeah. That's lobby. Track back in November. He's just been He's been impeccable. The rest of the way the covid nineteen outbreak of course forced post moment of the Kentucky Derby the preakness to. The. Bom obviously the biggest change with the Belmont was not only the two weeks, but the distance. You've mentioned the ASTERISK. We'll get to that in a minute You guys pretty much. And gals I don't want to offend anybody in Saratoga those thirty-five parts of this. Is that accurate? Seven and funny is that I was that six or seventy? You guys and funny side. We had ten ten. Okay, okay only. The same folks lieutenant. And I the only holdovers class. You guys Gus Williams. He passed away several years ago as dead one of our other great partners Dave Man but Ruined I gave remaining to. Stay with it and never in the world expecting that we would get the kind of horse that we've gotten here with the law. And this was an important race for you to win Jack Not that you don't want to win. The Derby again or the preakness again, but the Belmont stakes with your dedication to new. York, Brad's and New York, and let's face it. you know in a game where horses changed hands an awful lot. You and Barclay have been together two decades at this point. This was a very important race for you guys to to tick the box on. It was, and now he's got one more coming up in my hometown Saratoga Springs I've lived thirty five years I know Barkley wants to win it badly as do I and. Really if we can you know, check this box. would include the champagne, which is the the most important two year old race. The Belmont stakes obviously being biggest Belmont. Race and We get the travers at Saratoga. That's quite a triple. And that's pretty remarkable. When you consider you know you started this twenty years ago. As pretty much. Just some friends getting together and buying some horses. We had six guys and Sackett Cyber. I find the eastern end of Lake Ontario I went to high school. We were having our usual. Memorial Day weekend, bearing barbecue, and my wife and I would go up there and visit and I had been in the harness. Business Standard Bread business I guess for about a dozen years and got out. In in ninety four. And somebody up there said well. Why don't we buy a thoroughbred and I said you know figuring I've never gonNA hear anything about it again. I said okay. I said you know, let's each put in five thousand dollars. I knew Tim Kelly at that point who's a trainer and works at is never now. so I got a hold of me and he found this a New York Brad for twenty two thousand dollars. We named him the second sex after the six of us. From Sackett Cyber and came up with the name sack Toga stable after sack I Saratoga and made ourselves Maroon and gray, which are high school college. So. That's how it all started.

"It says congress shall make no has only congress makes the laws right, and it applies to the states because we passed the fourteenth amendment, which says no state shelter night any person within its jurisdiction equal protection laws. And so that incorporated various provisions of the Bill of rights out to the states. And that's why the state can't violate your right of free speech either. And then the Berkeley example because the university of California Berkeley is a state owned university. It counts as an agent of the state, so. That's how you get from congress shall make no law to your state university shall not enact a policy. That's inc. What I didn't learn into law school was. Inc. Was not at blanket thing. Inc, proceeded selectively right each and every talk about this with the second amendment. Yeah. The second amendment was not incorporated to the states until ten right? Not even right because Devi Heller was the district of Columbia. So it doesn't involve. That's why they brought that case as a test case. So that they didn't have to litigate the incorporation issue because no supreme court decision had ever held any right under the second amendment to ever invalidate a federal or state law because the second amendment that the the second amendment people like to say, it's how the founders intended except magically it didn't exist that way until two thousand ten weird. Yeah. Exactly. Right so Inc, proceeded piecemeal or selectively today, and by the way, it only makes sense to talk about Inc. In terms of the Bill of rights for the first eight amendments because the ninth and tenth amendments are about federalism, and you know, what I mean corporation. Make any sense for that. But each and every substantive provisions was then litigated, and you had to argue in federal court pay is this Inc. Is this not and today almost all of those? I eight amendments are incorporated with a couple of kind of weird exceptions. And one of those exceptions is the second half of the eighth amendment. Right. So the eighth amendment's prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment has been incorporated to the states. But what has never been incorporated states? Just because it hasn't been litigated is the question of nor shall excessive bail or fines be imposed. And so that's what this case is about facts Tyson. Tim's got a was the beneficiary of a life insurance policy and got seventy thousand dollars used it to buy a forty thousand dollar Land Rover and then use the other thirty thousand dollars to buy drugs. He was addicted to hydrocortisone we've talked about the opioid crisis. When when he was no longer able to get hydro own. He started using heroin, and and he started buying heroin from his dealer in among other places in Ohio. And so he would drive from Indiana to Ohio to pick up the heroin after he burned through thirty thousand dollars worth of heroin. He started doing what a lot of people addicted to heroin do which is he started buying and then reselling small amounts of the heroin to to pay for his habit. So he was convicted. Selling two to two separate occasions to two different undercover. Police officers two hundred twenty five dollars worth of heroin and one hundred sixty dollars worth of heroin respectively. Glad we're putting spending all his tax payer time and effort on this two hundred dollars. So so he was and I it's important echo through that. Because right. He was convicted of possession of heroin and distribution of heroin. Right. You wanna make sure this guy isn't Pablo Escobar, right? He's he's not mama Escobar personal use. And you know. Two grams of heroin. He was sentenced to to six years, but he was sentenced that was one year of home detention ankle bracelet and five years of probation..

"And then and the media is gonna be like, look, do you really want me to have to report to the judge that we blew up the settlement over the difference between ten thousand and seventy thousand you know, Berkeley with a. Nine to ten figure operating budget DP really want me to do that. And at the end of the day, you're gonna give right? You're gonna say fine. We'll give him we'll give them their attorney's fees. If if that's what it takes to to to put this to bed, so and by the way, they negotiated his in the settlement agreement that the payment of the attorney's fees in no way is an admission or suggestion that the underlying claims were in any way meritorious. You know, I don't wanna I don't want to overplay the importance of that that is spoiler plate language in a settlement agreement. But nevertheless, it's there. Okay. So they pay their attorney's fees, and they make changes to the major events policy, and again, and this is included exhibit. If you scrawl about halfway down, the hilly important thing that will strike you. If you scroll through this policy is how very little was changed. So right before the settlement in bold, the major events policy says all criteria for assessing major events must be applied in viewpoint neutral manner without regard to the content of any performance or speaking aspect of the event that was that way before it's that way after there are some changes with respect to. How the policy is administered. That are really just. Kind of administrative changes. The the big change is that the is that Berkeley will not has promulgated a fixed, which we're gonna talk about a fixed matrix for how it will assess security fees, and if the university decides that additional security is necessary, it has agreed to take on those costs rather than pass those costs on to the student organization that is sponsoring the event. Now, I defended on the show a principle based reason why the university shouldn't have to do that. I continue to think that that's valid. I'm not surprised that they would voluntarily agree to do that again because you're talking about ten thousand dollars or less in additional security costs and the cost of litigation is greatly going to exceed that. So I'm not surprised that they would give that away as an. Accommodation. That is really the only thing that can be described as a concession in. These changes the the rest of the policy right remains in force the schedule at the end, by the way, and I just want to point this out. And again, you know, it's gonna be up to Berkeley to decide how they get to interpret this. But the schedule at the end sets forth the table of minimum security required for events, but gives the university latitude to determine that that's going to require more security than that at those events. It sets out the the rate at which they are to be compensated. It provides that those rates can be increased quote at the start of each fiscal year due to increased salary and benefit costs. Sure, why that matters if they're agreeing to take it on anyway. Well, no because remember the these are. Are the let's clear, but they entered secured the standard, right? So every event that falls into a certain category, right, which is type of event capacity of the venue anticipated attendees type of staffing, whether there's going to be cash transactions whether you need metal detectors, whether there's going to be alcohol at the event, right? All of those things are the neutral criteria, and the the principle that we defended from the beginning, if you have a large popular event that requires a lot of security they can absolutely pass on the actual costs of securing the facility to the student organizations..

"So that I can free up to take on some other case, and in particular when it's a civil suit there. There's no there's zero math those were the marching orders to Berkeley. Now, it puts Berkeley in a difficult spot. Cousin entirely seem fair to me. Well, you know, this is part of the dynamic that that a, you know, clever lawyers can take advantage of right? And so so what did what did Berkeley agreed to do? They entered into a settlement agreement. I'm going to post this on the show. I would encourage everybody to look at this, particularly if you have numb skulls and Yahoos who are in your on your Twitter feed in your family on your Facebook who are doing a ha they want, and you can see exactly what Berkeley promised to do. And why the amendments that they made to their major events policy are attached in a red line. So you can you can see what they agreed to do. And in particular what they didn't agree to do. And so the big things there is absolutely note discussion or change or admission or acknowledgment or anything. Evan to do. With a magic secret invisible. Double top secret super probation policy against bringing right wing organizations to campus that has never been bored at Berkeley's policy. It's not part of the settlement. So when I said that was nonsense if it were not nonsense, you would expect that the plaintiffs would want to get some sort of concessions on that point. And in fact, there are no such concessions that is an admission that you were just making that whole secret hidden policy up and the major events policy has always said and continues to say that the criteria being used are non viewpoint discriminatory based criteria. Right. Most importantly, and to me, this is the thing that I haven't seen any of the like. Maga- hat wearing contingent acknowledge and understand the university retains the right to assign the event to the venue of its choosing. Right. So the whole idea the complaint that oh, you can shuttle us off in this room. Instead of this like the that's going to continue to be the case. What this does is? Oh, and one more thing, and I can tell you exactly how this came about. It does involve Berkeley paying and this kind of makes me sick Harmeet Dylan's attorney's fees. Not the least of which is a nobody should be paying her for anything and B. It's seventy thousand dollars associated with this litigation. And that's outrageous. That's outrageous. I will I will stop at that. But again from Berkeley's perspective Berkeley's council is Munger tola here, which is Covington and Burling style white shoe firm that they're paying a thousand bucks an hour for and undoubted. Really if I'm the mediator in this case the way a mediator works in in court is a good mediator goes between the parties and conveys the most sceptical position to each side that that they're in front of right. And so the mediator is gonna go before. Yeah. And go guys you got pretty much crushed on on your motion to dismiss and you probably gonna lose. If this goes forward to summary. Judgment and hermit Dylan is gonna say, yeah, I don't care right. This is all about us winning the PR battle. And if we come out of here, and we don't have a settlement because the university has decided to fight on. I feel pretty good that the judge is going to take it out on them and not us. And even if they were willing to take that risk because this is just about us winning the fight. They really have nothing till it's hard to bang on them. Right. Then you go back. You know, you start crafting. The the potential of a settlement that we want all our attorney's fees, and and what the mediator is gonna tell Berkeley he's going to go to Berkeley and me like they want all their attorney's fees, and the Berkeley lawyer is going to be like get outta here with that, you know, we'll find we'll give them, you know, ten grand..

"I'm going to talk about the reason they settled this case, but. One. I think we failed to to recap for new listeners. Sure. Just a quick details of. Yeah. Go ahead. Oh, oh, I see. I have to do it. Well, it had to do with the fact that see I might get tripped up on on the which are the actual legal point in which is the BS that the the the the Young America people spewed out because I I haven't it's been awhile since I read it, but it had to do with the fact that Ann Coulter was going to demand, and I think there's some other right wing people involved in this suit. We're gonna come speak at the campus end. They're speaking involved a lot of additional security because of their, you know, their train wrecks and. The dispute was over the fact that she wanted to speak in like the main big hall or whatever some some big venue at her time whenever she wanted. And the I've my memory is that the university said we can't secure that. And especially not at the time and place, you're saying we want to utilize normal time and place restrictions, which I think our constitutional by memory and have you do the speech some other time at a location where we can secure it better. And that that's my memory. But I'm I'm sure you can fill in a lot of the details. Yeah. And so that's exactly right. And so the Young America foundation and again because I'm five hundred years old this organization, same letters. I don't know why you wanna preserve Yaffa as your acronym. It's not like it's a particularly delightful sound kind of sounds like, you know, cat hairball. But when I was in. College. Yeah. Was still the right wing Yahoos who kind of smelled funny and didn't get invited to the good parties. But it stood for young Americans for freedom. But you know, look Oh, out. did I say the wrong one to today? It is called the Young America foundation. Right. So they've kept the acronym. They've changed. The underlying words, they haven't Shailer Marsh, right? It's it's MAC a hat wearing kids with, you know, body issues who you know, with body odor issues. I should say who, you know, don't get invited to on campus parties and bringing Ann Coulter to your campuses, a good idea. Right. So yeah, they teamed together with Harmeet Dylan who is a publicity hound right wing hack to file a lawsuit against university, California, Berkeley, claiming that the universities what they call the major events policy violated, the constitutional rights, and that also that Berkeley had a secret hidden agenda to prevent them ringing any conservative speakers to campus. And that lawsuit Berkeley filed a motion to dismiss they won on virtually all of their claims, with the exception of the Hugh have a hidden secret conspiracy claim, okay? And the reason that they didn't win that on a motion to dismiss is reasons that will be need the hawks. Yeah. Right. Right. Every away listener understands that that like if you say you secretly snuck onto my yard. And I say, no, I didn't you. That's not the basis for motion to dismiss right? You get to discovery and figure out did I sneak onto your yard or not. So the the the court allowed yet to go forward. But, but then what it did was referred the case to a magistrate judge with orders to conduct a settlement conference. I have done this a lot. I have friends who are magistrate judges both in the federal system and state. Court magistrate judges. The reason this happens is because our courts are overworked. Underfunded ninety nine percent of all civil cases settle and it is impossible for a judge to manage her docket under the assumption that all or most or virtually any of the cases on her docket are going to come to trial. Right. And when you win on ninety nine percent of a motion to dismiss and the judge says, why don't you guys go? Settle this case that's a very very strong signal. Right. That that that the judge is is taking says like there's this case is not going to get this off my docket..

So you could contaminate, you know, both sides of the continent, either direction, and then the Clark fork ends up going into lake pen. Doria l. how's that pronounced? There can't be right.

It drains into lake pend oreille in Idaho, which then forms a part of the headwaters of the Columbia River. This is by the way, essentially the plot of the new mission impossible movie, is it? Yeah, the you could contaminate like a whole continents water by doing something dirty in the wrong place. Well. So if if the groundwater continues to rise or the, the water in the Berkeley pit continues to rise and reaches the level of the groundwater, it in fact, could contaminate this entire watershed all the way. Across all the way up into Canada down at as far as Oregon and into the into the Columbia all the way to the Pacific Ocean. So we're speaking to an audience for whom this could have already happened, how can we possibly mitigate it? What are we trying to do? Well, like all super.

We're using all of our strength who's who is we hear you in the hundreds of Montana.

Surely they're very resilient and also are capable of to a certain extent processing, heavy metals and neutralizing them as they eat their component toxicities.

And let's hope that it is contained that those organisms do spawn from the Berkeley pit, but that it doesn't overflow its banks and. Stink up the whole, the whole of the west. I mean, and further down the Columbia River. Of course, we have the Hanford Superfund site which also has the same exact problem that the the, the, the nuclear waste of Hanford is seeping into the groundwater there. And at a certain point will having reached the groundwater well, Ben potentially contaminate the Columbia River. From that point down, these microbes are Adam and eve for somebody to us.

"Second, you just always something else was the largest masonry smokes well, but the thing is the largest smokestack in the world was kind of race. And so if you look at the largest smokestacks in the world, a lot of them only held the title for like ten years, and then somebody would build a larger smokes, even more transparent than guys getting a big truck is you're like, I'm gonna. I'm going to build a really big smokestack way that you're than yours. The largest smokestack in the world now is in Kazakhstan, and it's something like two twelve hundred feet hires bass days, but it's made of concrete. So it doesn't. It doesn't threaten me Anna conduct stack, which is masonry which is actual brick. But so here in the center of the town of Montana. And I mean in the center, if you go visit Butte and you're walking up and down the the yield streets know playing like cowboy and it's a beautiful town because during its wealthy heyday, you You know, know. dozens and dozens of the most beautiful Victorian mansions, painted ladies. The downtown is a is a classic awesome old west town. What you're not aware of is hundreds of feet away. Mere just like across the street is a bubbling VAT from teenage mutant ninja turtle movie, yeah, invisible to you because it's a pit you can walk over and you know you're just in the town. You walk over, you come to a fence and you look down and it's like fifteen hundred feet down to a cauldron of toxic chemicals. In fact, it's a tourist site. You can pay an admission fee and walk through a tunnel and out onto a platform where you're suspended above the pit is one of the things right glass floor. So you got. It was super fun decide and it's a tourist attraction. Both thing that doesn't seem great, but but mitigating the damage is incredibly complicated because there's so much water in the, what do you do? It continues to rise. There's actually so much metal dissolved in the water that they've now figured out a way to mind the water as they try and as they try and filter this water, they can pull meaningful amounts of of magnesium or whatever. Cadmium, they're still copper, and you can get four hundred thousand pounds of copper a month just out of the water. I see. Isn't that nuts? It's insane. The water is so acidic that as recently as two thousand fifteen, there was an incident. This happened in the nineties to where thousands of snow geese in their migratory pattern. They see from the air. Oh, look at this nice late. Look at this beautiful lake and they swooped down. In in the thousands onto the lake and died, whom I God were burned by the acid who roasts of and people in Butte woke up the next day. And there were like thousands of dead geese floating on their in their Berkeley pit. And then also a lot of the geese that managed to fly away died later were found all dead in a WalMart parking lot somewhere insides being corroded by the bad water. They drank variety. And so so the Berkeley pit actually has like geat goose scaring sounds, they try and frighten migratory birds away from landing on the surface. It's not a thing that you go down to the Berkeley pit and go swimming in the summer. I would imagine not. I'm sure it's the origin story for pretty much all Montana. Super villains. Sure, right. They fell into the pit and came out the other side as Kupperman the Anaconda, the speculator, all of my greatest enemies. Old Dublin Gulch himself when the speculator, but the, here's the danger. Well, already sounds pretty dangerous. If you're a goose, it's very dangerous, but it is confined. But the real danger is that as the water level in the Berkeley pit rises comes closer and closer to the level of the natural groundwater at present time it is it's within one hundred and fifty feet of the level of the groundwater and right next to it is the Clark fork of the Columbia River is this is this a major. So these are some of the headwaters of. So there's a, there's a traditional creek that runs through Butte. It's called the silver bow creek, which was a dumping area for all these minds for for century..

"They shut down the open pit mine. So it was opened in nineteen fifty five and it closed in nineteen eighty two. Oh, it wasn't an open pit. Mine until the fifty. S they started digging it in the fifties. Yes, before that they were all shaft Mons I was picturing like some old west town getting Kohl's dug in it. But this is Eisenhower era America and still sticking it to the Irish Asian immigrants. It was an old west town that had survived until the fifties Gulch in the name. Like not a lot of fifties suburbs in my memory have Gulch in no, no. But that's why they were digging it up because there wasn't as much respect for towns with the name Gulch right in the fifties as there would be are sometimes you get a get a country singer that comes out of a Gulch or a holler, but that's about it. And I'll really if they're digging an open pit mine there, it's just a bigger Gulch. When you think about getting culture, you know who came out of Dublin, Gulch and Butte Montana have no less of a person than evil. Knievel. Wait, is that right? Yeah, people got an e play. He came out of it on a motorcycle. He, it's one thing he didn't jump over as the Berkeley pit. So the tragedy is that when they close to the Berkeley pit mine, they also stopped. They turned off the water pumps that we're keeping the groundwater from filling up the mind the whole time they were digging. They had pumps getting water. They had pumped there. So low there at or below the aquifer. Right. And in turning off the pumps, the aquifer Zain the region begin filling up the pit and this was not a catastrophe that they realized initially. Sure. It seems fun. Like an old standby me quarry where the kids play. We'll look though it's the water is rising. It was rising at the level of about a foot month. But as the water rose in the pit filled to a depth of about nine hundred feet with of water while witch leached heavy metals and acids from the mine tailings and from the whole process of both the digging and the exposure, the dust of all this mine exploitation. And as the the water became more acidic it mixed with oxygen and became and seeped more sort of s-o-f-i eating more of the edge of it away until the until the water in the Berkeley pit became essentially an acid similar s. city to lemon juice or like ammonia bleach. It's just a giant hole filled with sulfuric acid right. Such that it was one of the things that inspired the Superfund cleanup legislation of the mid eighties. There were several environmental disasters in this era or recognition of disasters, like the love canal. There was a thing in Kentucky where where they discovered like a giant field where people have just been dumping fifty gallon drums of heavy chemicals for decades, Seattle's gasworks park was never a Superfund site, but it was also deeply contaminated, right? I used to play on the playground there as a kid, and my parents were always like, don't dig a hole and this is true all across the United States it down. You're gonna head arsenic, like in three inches down into coma. There was the Asarco smelter, which also for a while had the largest smokestack in the world..

"Well, some effort was made by the Anaconda copper company to pay market value for the land of the homes that were being torn down to dig this pit. Although, you know what was the market value of a home in Dublin, Gulch in Butte Montana. You're on bargaining position to their amalgamated and the Chinese are not. Here's your, here's your five hundred and twenty dollars take it or leave it. But they did dig this pit and they extracted a tremendous amount of copper from the whole, but they dug a pit seventeen hundred feet deep and while about a mile long and a half a mile wide, a huge, a huge hole as part of their extraction of all this precious metal and and in addition to an enormous amount of copper, they also pulled golden silver out to it was a, it was a very profitable load. It doesn't have a big pile of dirt next to it, like the one in Utah, like it must well seventeen hundred feet in a mile long. Yeah, mine tailings surround the pit. They're cleaning up the one in Salt Lake by there's kind of a big process under way to make it less to defy the mine tailings of the Kennecott mine. Well, the pro. What you do paint them. The problem in the Berkeley pit is not just a problem of ugliness. Okay. What's the problem in the Berkeley pit? So by the late seventies where why is it by by the way you just drop then? And why is it the Berkeley pit? Well, so it was named after the original mine on the site, the shaft mine was called the Berkeley mine and they all get names. There's the Harvey mind and there's the Anaconda mine which gave its name to the company. The Brooklyn pit sounds like a club. Remember when we saw. I don't. I mean, I saw Jefferson airplane at the Berkeley pit in nineteen sixty seven or something like that. Sure. Like the Greek theater, it's right next door to the Berkeley pit. Right. Well, it's not related to. You're, you're not wrong. But it's not related to Berkeley, California, it's probably guy named Berkeley. Yeah, some some other connection to it. Yeah. And I, I think I think being called the Berkeley pit maybe initially was kind of complimentary, but it has become a, at least in the west a. I mean, Berkeley pit is synonymous with with an environmental catastrophe which I will explain now what happened? So in the in the mid seventies, the Anaconda copper company was purchased by the Atlantic Richfield company ARCO who thought that they were ARCO was Chris petroleum companies. They are, but they were trying to diversify in the style of the time amalgamate a little. They wanted to amalgamate and become a resource extraction company. I have a little LLC of my own that I use for my endeavors, and I, I would like it to amalgamate things. Would you like to buy any of my companies are any of them compromise? Not presently.
