Trump administration rejects California fires disaster declaration
"Trump has denied a request for a major disaster declaration to help California with recovery from wildfires. The White House says California did not provide relevant data to show it should get a presidential disaster declaration. California says it absolutely qualifies with huge areas burned hundreds of homes gone and victims dead from wildfires. Former FEMA administrator Brock Long telling ABC News politics need to be removed from emergency response and who FEMA helps goes out and render support and is not dictated by politics or, you know the victim of politics that are out there. California says it will appeal the Trump administration's decision and ask for the funding again.
Is Trump Losing the Midwest?
"Welcome to the be I'm Ari Melber and we are tracking some new sides. Trump campaign is worried about losing the Midwest and thus the entire race to Joe Biden trump spending precious time and resources on defense and state carried by wapping ten points. Last Cycle Iowa Biden is closing that gap and putting the state in a dead heat I was one of the thirty nine states Kobe is surging appointed his greeting donald trump's visit many voters their view this campaign homestretch through the prism of covert. And the criticisms not just coming from Joe Biden or the Resistance Iowa leaders, public health experts, independent writers all noting the trump is coming back now for votes after turning his back on the crisis there take the influential Des Moines Register stating that after jeopardizing our live from far. Trump decides to visit Iowa in person. Or take a look at this. You can't pull up trump's I will rally tonight without seeing this massive billboard pointing the way to yes. A super spreader of. Trump is plowing forward on breaking CDC guidelines lying about the risk of Colbert and the timing of vaccine and repeating two thousand sixteen claims in that state and in other key battleground states that from what we're seeing on the ground and our reporting may not play as well. Right now Democrats, say many measurable signs show that some voters are now onto the con- take a local paper in the state of Pennsylvania noting that trump is just recycling is two thousand, sixteen jobs message, which may work less during the current recession while the president blows up these stimulus talks this week. And his key groups like suburban women turn on Donald Trump that's according to internal polling newly obtained by politico or senior citizen's wavering on trump group that he needs for a winning coalition in several of these states, and since we were last on air just last night, roughly three more million ballots are in leading to nearly fifteen million total ballots cast, which again is vital because it may lock in votes at a time when Donald Trump appears down. So. If you follow all this stuff, you could see the facts trump's record are hurting him. But with the second debate canceled this week, not everyone's falling all the details which is important to keep in mind and that's true. We checked even in some key states that the candidates are visiting even for people who do read the paper. Take Florida which so many politicos obsessed over even when the candidates are on the ground I wanNA show, you hear a fairly typical big city paper, the Orlando Sentinel, the twenty, twenty race it's not the very top story or line. It's not top two on the right. You have to squint there and find it. We put it in red for you below the full in the very lower right hand corner, and that's with the nominee Joe Biden on the ground. Elections are one on preference and turnout. Popularity or preference really helps. But turnout commander more. That's how unpopular person like Donald trump managed to eke out a win in the electoral college in the first place even though remember he never pulled very high. He never pulled past fifty percent and he finished with few voters supporting him in our weird. Constitutional System. By right now, thanks from that evidence. We showed you in what we've been showing you throughout the week that they are up. So they're laser on taking that preference and trying to get the turnout with these growing leads states that trump won in two thousand sixteen big leads in some places above the margin of error and the question is, can the Democrats actually turn all those people out? I want to bring in someone who knows all about this polling Guru Cornell Belcher who worked on both Obama campaigns and wanting to taller the national political director for supermajority, which focuses ongoing political opportunities for women good evening to both of you. Cornell when you see the numbers up. What is the vital part for campaigns in October as voting's begun interning turning preference in turn out into victory? I think are a couple of things are really important. The numbers that are structurally different from twice I wanted to make that plex a lot of people still nervous about twenty sixteen. Structurally this is different than twice a couple of ways. One is different than to sixteen. In that in all these polls are driven showing by actually has a majority. And that is critical I. don't care if you're five, six, seven points. If you're below majority crazy things can happen. But in most of these bound states and certainly the national polling, he's now at a majority in Washington Post polling which I which I pay attention to hear because they they have the third party candidate in there as well. He's still at a majority you remember. Hillary was always ahead in the forced to way choice coastal majority but with the third party candidates who. Turned up the instrumental she was never had a majority of that. She got in nationally law with what what we saw with third-party Cornell just to pause on that point you raise because this matters you're pointing out that sometimes the question the voters get on the phone is different than what they're going to see. If they turn out, they get presented with two and it can change the actual science of what we're getting when they're gonNA go in the ballot box and see three or more explain to us exactly what's different now or what you think that there's more optimism for Biden compared to that. There was a protest right and we understood that that that that the third party candidates were repealing. A inaudible segment of the electorate who who, who was my time voted for for Bronco Rock Obama and nowhere is that more crystal clear than the State Wisconsin, what you saw those young people third party forty we also understand that the Russians have had a big play in and try and direct some of those specials and African American voters toward party candidate candidate candidates here. But even with their and candidates right now structurally, Biden has a majority of which is which is good and it's a stable majority. Are This is unusual in that you can't go back in the last two or three decades seeing where a Democrat has held a double digit lead nationally embattled most these battleground states for not one month that two months, three months. But basically, since June so structurally, this is very different and within the numbers is very different because when you look at right now you know among College White Women, the Horse Races Twenty seven, sixty, nine ad from the Washington. Post poll so know. So, you're talking about structurally this lead in and his support is very different than what we saw. Hillary Clinton Sixteen in two thousand sixteen quite frankly I'm gonna Bama and teen got but this is structurally even different than what we saw for Brock Obama. In Twenty, eight, twenty, twelve in two. Thousand eight I'M GONNA bring. You Anita? But. You're saying it diplomatically are you saying you think the number support a bigger margin for buying than what Obama One? Is Is blasphemed don't Tell Brak. Obama but I. Joe By going to beat it by. Wow don't you know it doesn't work when you say don't tell someone, but you're on live TV. That's really you are I mean again, I just want to underscore this. Again, we're following the the numbers and I've tried to show viewers we're GONNA continue report for you. Particularly, the votes cast the voter registration were at fifteen million votes. The election has begun, which is different than a hypothetical poll six months ago so we have an Obama pollster. Saying tonight, he is seeing the elements of the larger victory for Biden and Obama that you own that. Not Me that's really interesting coming from you cornell. Elliott. said it you're not telling you. There's no things what they're. Not. GonNa, let you forget this. I don't see it. But what I do see is absolutely the margins nationally the margins in these battleground states are undeniable but also an organizer. So first and foremost I'm always going to default to this is a turnout game. It is all about the people get showing up. I am absolutely looking at that almost fifteen million votes cast number and have optimism optimism about what we can expect to see as we get closer to the election cycle and I'm also a woman optimistic about women boating and turning out their friends and their. Families to make sure that binding gets over the finish line because what what is interesting here is Bala failures that you mentioned about trump and your opening are like boater boater spill that and voters are living that every single day. So on top of all them enthusiasm for a Biden Harris, they're taking their lived experience in an ongoing pen to make that didn't have to be this way in an economic recession that again didn't have to be this way but are here but we're all here because of trump and his administration's ineptitude.
Reuters Reporter On The Rise Of Single-Use Plastic During The Pandemic
"Face Shields takeout food containers bubble wrap for online orders. Plastic bags from grocery deliveries think about how much people around the world are relying on mountains of plastic to get through this pandemic we'll have that plastic is not recyclable, and even if it were the demand for recycled plastic is down plastic is made from petrochemicals and the price of oil is so low that the price of brand new plastic known as Virgin Plastic is low to Reuters investigative reporter Joe. Brock has been connecting the dots in this other pandemic, this plastic pandemic and he joins us now. Welcome. So paint us a picture here. What was the trend for single use plastics before the coronavirus pandemic? Before the pandemic, the mom single, you slapstick woods with going out but particularly the case in developing countries where you've got a rising middle class, the condemn any exacerbated that trend and winning your investigation found was that big oil companies are hoping for a continually realising demand for new plastic, which is also made from fossil fuel. So they see that as a growth opportunity for their industry, right? That's correct. You're seeing oil and gas companies struggling. During the pandemic is your price has has dropped but as a longer term trend as we move towards electric vehicles greener energy. That is an abundance of cheap oil and gas, and that needs to go somewhere for these companies to remain successful and one of the key growth areas is me plastic for developing economies and that's what we're seeing huge amounts of investments, hundreds of billions of dollars in new petrochemicals, plants as they try and take advantage of that are these same companies that are investing in producing more new plastic. Are they also investing in recycling efforts? So these companies absolutely say that they take the waste crisis extremely seriously and they won't be part of the solution. What investigation was intended to do was to interrogate that claim I'm what we found was the investments they're making in recycling a vague and those ones that could be calculated or fraction of the money that they're spending on expanding plastic production. So the situation you have is you're trying to upper floor with a hand towel while the bosses Agra flying. Then instead of tying the topples, you start increasing the pressure. Okay we'll your investigation also found that the price of new plastic had dropped significantly during this pandemic as a result of these cheaper oil prices. So what does that mean overall for the business of recycling business being catastrophic for some smaller recycling firms because covid has led to a flawed using lease plastic but dropped the price at new plastic. So it's very difficult for those companies to compete and ready operating on extremely find margins. I mean, we should remind everyone that recycling was never going to be the solution to all the excess plastic trash produced worldwide right? Exactly. I think what's important for people to understand is that only a fraction of plastic gets recycled also most bostick cannot be recycled since nineteen fifty, six point three, billion tons of plastic waste being produced ninety one percent of has not been recycled. So can I just ask you then what do you think is the answer taller this Recycling, shutting the caught, the answer, a huge amount of investment needs to go into that from governments from consumer goods, companies to the plastic producers themselves. But is another elephant in the room here, which is we need to stop producing so much single use plastic on ultimately what it comes down to is profit margins versus the good of the planet climate on some of the poorest communities in the world right. That is reporter Joe Brock from Reuters. Thank you very much for joining us today. It's been a
Interview with Pete Evanow
"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter I'm here today with Pete Evans. I'm glad you could join us. Hello Pete is the author of Nissan's e fifty years of exhilarating performance. It was just published this year by motor books an imprint of Corto press I'm here to tell you I have the book and hand and among all of the recent automotive publications this one really stands apart congratulations on a great project pay. Thank you very much I. really appreciate that it was a labor of love I put it together fairly quickly. Because it was something that Nissan jumped on board at a last minute decision was interesting being really did make a big deal out of the twenty fifth anniversary and I don't know why. But it didn't really occur to them to do much about the fiftieth anniversary. Then all of a sudden somebody internally said we have to and that was Hiroshi Mariah. They got in touch with their licensing agency, which is emi and EMI contact and motor books motor books. Contacted me because I had written an earlier version of thirty fifth anniversary, and so we put this together really in a little less than a year. Notice. The forward is by Hiroshi tomorrow and obviously had a hand in recognizing that fifty years of Zina's as you call it Pete. You've got kind of an interesting career. Obviously, you're Z. Aficionado, but you're also a professor in the Department of Communications Cal State Fullerton probably as we talk about your book about. The history of the Z. Cars will maybe get into a little bit of the market speak that went along with essentially introducing a whole car a whole new concept to a whole new audience. That is the North American audience for whom a sports car from Japan was a brand new unthinkable concept back in nineteen seventy. I know this isn't your first. Z.. Car Rodeo either because it published Z thirty, five years of Nissan Sports car in two, thousand five. It's hard to imagine that the name plate is as old as it is for its thirty fifth anniversary. There was some pretty exciting things happening to but I guess related start at the beginning. Let's go back and look Z. Legacy from the start you and I are old enough to remember that back in the sixties and early seventies Japanese cars were by enlarge disregard I'm being charitable I'd say joke in some ways but they were no joke because of course Honda and Toyota essentially took over their respective markets and Dotson did the same but really the only sports car we had back in the sixties was the Toyota two. Thousand and that was such a rare esoteric piece of work that it almost doesn't count. Nissan did try. They had a sixteen hundred little sports car was a little convertible started as a sixteen hundred. They call it the fair lady in Japan of course, and then they brought it over here to the US, and then it became a slightly larger motor and they had it with the two liter the colored, the two thousand by remember that two thousand. Well, a friend of mine had a Canary Yellow One and I thought it was an amazing thing. It was right up there with any MGB, except that it was more reliable and. A grey little competitive car and Peter Brock raised it. So did Bob Sharp on the East Coast and so that kind of really established footprint if you will for Nissan at least from a motor sports standpoint and it gave them some credibility and it really provided the power I guess internally to look at a genuine sports car hardtop version and you can always thank Mr k. you talk Yama who pushed that card the Z. initially and he was here in America as the president of Nissan, USA and he went back to Japan. And we really have to have a sports car that is affordable and is something that everyone can afford here in the United States, and so he basically got the idea of democratising a sports car. You mentioned the Toyota two thousand GT was an incredible car but didn't really have the legs to expand. They didn't really bring it over here in significant quantities and it was a very expensive car as opposed to little roadsters. Remember Papa Bondra used to thousands for his driving school they were so good and reliable and relatively inexpensive the. Toyota was essentially unaffordable and it was fragile and even though it did a little bit of racing there just wasn't enough critical mass to really make it stick. Nissan. Really wanted to be the first to come in their Honda was here but they made really small throwaway cars to begin with them shoebox as I think the only thing smaller was at Subaru three sixty that looked like an egg with. Wales. And Nissan was ahead of their time of course, they were called Dotson then but they came out with their to forty and. Late sixty nine, but they also had a pickup truck and so those were two key markets that they used to go after slightly different audiences. But that's how they penetrated the US market at least initial. So many times a great name plate like the to forty comes about because of the vision of a single person or a tight team and you talk about the talk cut yama or Mr K. Katayama. Son was obviously an interesting guy and he must have been doing something. Right? He lived to be one hundred, five years old. That's a remarkable thing in and of itself you speak very fondly of in your book can you give us a little insight into what it took to get his own corporate colleagues superiors to buy into his crazy idea as a sports car for America I think you just a force and he just had such incredible passion. I had the pleasure of meeting with him several times and you'd him not only for my previous book but also speaking to him in several the Zekan's and car shows I mean he was very passionate. Loved people. As they said in his slogan Love Life Love People, you couldn't not like him I hate double negative but the fact is, is that I believe that his passion. and his persuasive skills were partially enough to demonstrate that he could sell this car United States and I think that's what it talked to convince his contemporaries, his colleagues in Japan that if he could have the opportunity to bring the Z. here in America, he would show them that that was the right car at the right time and he would be successful with it and they believed they were a little skeptical his colleagues in Japan but they obviously invested in the car and said, okay now it's up to you and your colleagues to make sure that this happens and it did

Whats the science behind bullying?
"Okay guys. I want to talk about bully. For. Me Back when I was in grade two, I was bullied. This one person made most of the air just miserable one day he just decided to torment me. Oh i. think he wanted to drive a wedge between me and a friend. The worst part was we used to be really good friends. We were like really really close and then he just. became. Randomly. evil. So. One day we were friends, and then the next day he just. Flip and he just came a jerk so. What's up with that? Like what do people just become bullies? And, it's not just me boiling is everywhere I looked into some of the statistics and it's not looking good for US guys. At least one in three students in Canada have reported being bullied recently and the rate of discrimination experienced by students who identifies lgbtq plus is three times higher than heterosexual students and girls are more likely to be bullied on the Internet them boys. So, put that guys. and. The worst part is that this stuff doesn't end as you grow up. Forty percent of Canadian workers experienced bullying on a weekly basis. But why like? Why are these numbers so hot? Is there some sort of evolutionary societal biological purpose to it? Is it something in our brains something that we've been born with. What is the scientific reason for bullying? I'm Kai. This is my podcast I asked why there are just so many good questions other than you. Really WanNA. Get Answer. What is deja-vu? How'd you songs get stuck in your head? Water animals. Sing. The dinosaurs died how did other animal survive? Why Space Dark? And what is the science of bullying? So I'm assuming all of you've been bullied at least once in your life. Yes sir. These are my friends. Piper Fin Cayden and Zoe were all kids here and we all have dealt with it at some point in our lives. For. Me Oftentimes, I feel like my friends needed knee for their entertainment. It would be weird because if they would be like teasing me or something and I would be like Oh. But these are my friends. These are Nice people why are they? Bullying me. For me. It's sort of something that I'm like currently experiencing is just someone at my school in my class who like they'll just jokingly show me and I think they take it too far. Sometimes, they just don't really know when to stop I. Just think like for me there is just like the little things that kind of like build up like there's this one person who Kana criticizes me like about. Maybe my grades or something like that and say that I'm not doing well, just like making up stuff which I think is very nice. Young guys. It's not a good feeling at all. It sucks you know and really bad blink can actually affect your life for a really longtime i. took a listen through some recent CBC stores on bullying and made me really really sad to hear from grownups who are still haunted by these heroin blink experiences that they had when they were young. I was a small kid. And being a small kid I was. Bullied a lot I was an easy target. I. Constantly get pushed around punched kicked bookstore on the hallway floor. I changed schools a couple of times about bullying followed me and I dropped out screwy sixty years old. But three of them after school would pin me down on the ground and push me down and hit me and kick me. I really became a shell of who I probably could have been. I was quite an emotional rack. I think it's something you just never really recover from. So I, think you know in a way we're playing with fire when we think that this is just something that everybody goes through or many people go through and there are consequences. If bullying is so painful and so hurtful for so many people why would anybody ever do it ever? Found? Someone why Could help me get to the bottom of this. Alot. This is Tony Vote. In the Department of Child, new studies at Brock University. He's a developmental psychologist. He spent a lot of time studying bullying his approach is multidisciplinary. So he thinks about it from an evolutionary biological and historical perspective. Even as his own laboratory studies it. So I am here to figure out what he's learned. So. What got you interested in bullying I was fully PRETTY UNORIGINAL I know. It's it's good motivation. Alone. Bullying is probably ubiquitous amongst life itself. I mean, you need that the pecking order and checking. The dominance hierarchy in wolves. Chimpanzees. Could also probably by many definitions seat amongst trees that compete with each other. Hold up hold up. So even trees are blowing. Each other is nothing sacred people. Some Bushes will inject toxins into more developing species beside them. So the strategy of being. To weaker individuals is for better for worse part of evolutionary strategy in general.
Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable
"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing. Yeah, they're they're still there Still the these moments. I mean, you know, you think of other things, which is a variety of trade agreements, etcetera, you know, to buy goodbye volume candy industry, right? Ferrara. Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village. Some people listening probably know that L grow village has one of the world's largest industrial parks. Mathis, right, so there's work going on out there near O'Hare support. Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify.

Automating Patient Outreach with Ricky Hsu
"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saw Marquez here such a privilege to have you tune in again today have the privilege of hosting Ricky Su. He is the CO founder and CEO. At provia health. He's a licensed pharmacist in California, an extremely passionate about technology and healthcare prior to CO founding PROVIA. Health Ricky managed multiple. Pharmacy Care Teams at specialty pharmacies, and at two of California's largest medical groups. The majority of his healthcare career has been focused on creating innovative care strategies for low income populations with complex care needs. Ricky's experience at the ground level and managed care had a huge impact and allowed him to identify major pinpoints when providing care to. It was here that gravy health mission and blueprints were drawn and day we get to dive into the work that he and his Co founder William and team are doing to the plainfield and around this area, and so with that I wanNA welcome to the podcast ricky. So glad you could join us today I saw pleasure to be here. Thanks for inviting me absolutely my friend and so first of all, before we dive into Provia health and Iris you. Know the product, the digital brock you guys have I WANNA learn a little bit more about you and what inspires your work in healthcare? Yes. I've actually always been really proud of that in healthcare. You can make a great living while helping people get better. So there's few industries that you can do that and unfortunate enough that healthcare is one of the right. So the pharmacist I used to help one person at a time at the counter and then an. Elvis phone or so on and when I answered managed care I realized that the decisions that I make in managed care canal sites, hundreds or thousands of people, and so now with pro hells on constantly you're gonNA ask myself you know how can we build something great and how can we build something? They'll end up positively impacting as many people's possible by especially those in underserved population. So that's what really allows you to enjoy the work that I'm doing. Right now love it. Yeah. I. Mean It's awesome and with digital health tools available today and you know some ingenuity and practicality and a little know how you could get really far in scaling what you could do one on ones population. So tell us a little bit more about Provia Health Ricky and you know how the businesses adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yeah. So appropriate health goal is to help Chelsea companies save time and resources by fully automating their. retried. So we do that by incorporating an intelligent chat lot with conversational artificial intelligence on the fronted, and then we pair that to a patient assessment platform that can automatically understand your health situation through emr records, and you know Ziv mentioned before our chat bots name is Iris stands for intelligent response and information system it automatically screens and assesses the patients to find out which services they need, and then we provide a platform where the providers can then monitor and fall in love with the patients all in one place. So Saves Lot I'm and makes it easier. You can imagine if you had a super well trained healthcare worker whether it's a nurse, a farm technician that's put. In charge of recounts your patients and now all of a sudden, they can read every patient's records in your entire system reach out talk to them simultaneously ask the right questions it's a craft service. Each one needs right and compare. That's right now where most of the staff in this area are pretty much doing it manually swamped and then can barely reach maybe yes you percentage of the entire population that they're in charge of it. So just imagine how many more patients will get the help they desperately needed if we can automate this entire process. Yeah nods definitely an opportunity. So are you guys mainly interfacing? You said healthcare companies? So is it mainly employers? Is the yeah so It's it's a beep business model and our main clientele is payers providers and. Okay. Airs providers and pharmacies. So you have these different stakeholders using the system how are you helping each so walk us through that you know how are you helping the payer? Are you helping the provider and Harry out so pharmacist the payer and the provider twined by both of them are very much involved in this whole patient outreach where they have to a proactive and whether it's chronic care management or its notice enabling services and reaching out to make sure that the patients get what they need. There's a lot of food insecurities right now, for example, homelessness or mental health and depression and those areas. So there's a lot of enabling services out there there are available to these patients, but they're not necessarily getting access and getting referred to the right proper care that they need at any given time. So it's important for the providers and the payers to be able to identify the patients quickly right screen them, risk, assess them, and get them quickly out to these services. So that, you know they prevent the deterioration, their care

They'll send them to. We Love Brock's and did that in the breaking rocks. If we If we have like a bunch of the green beans does that count as a vegetable? Absolutely, and carrots.

It's already started in a few cities and should be rolling out throughout the rest of the country in a few months and it's available through your Uber App sued us open up the APP and the groceries available. You can order groceries through Uber I. Love that because Insta- card has become my life and I, love grocery delivery more than anything and I will try Uber Uber User. So I've tried Uber eats and that's great. The more people that want to bring me groceries without having me leave the house. The better told her wonderful lift is gonNA. Follow. Suit. Probably. Probably I cannot wait honestly do you guys use the grocery delivery services exclusively? Yeah. Amazon fresh and INSTA- cart like three or four times a week. Amazing and I've been ordering for my mom too which is a whole other story that I will probably get into later. Okay. We should get I think I actually had this idea. I want to start sending certain things to my mom with her INSTA- card orders and having her review them on the podcast I. Think it would be funny. The best thing I've ever heard. MAZING. All right. We might do that flew choose. All right. We're about to jump in to these products that have been delivered. Some of them seem weird. There's only one product I think out of all of these products that actually or maybe two that I've heard of that look familiar and I've only tried one so I cannot wait this first product is something that is totally new to me. I've heard of p being me but this is pbs me powder chocolate hazelnut spread. So I was envisioning it to be a little bit like powdered new tele kind of right like a powdered peanut butter and you tell, yeah, it's. Exactly. It's like powder peanut butter, but it's powdered hazelnut instead and then it's yeah. Two tablespoons, fifty calories to grams of fat. So the stats are amazing. Four grams of protein. I. Don't know Jimmy, you probably know this mark. It's one smart point. Amazing. Okay. So I have mixed it up with some waterman about to try it. It looks like new Tele Ish. Okay. I'm not a hazelnut fan and I really like that It's nutty. It's I've tried like almond powdered almond butter and I did not like it at all. The Hazelnut is better I have to say, I made a second version and I added cocoa. Like amp up the chocolate flavor I was gonNA, say. Yours. Looks so dark. It's really good. I added like, did you add Dr Cocoa I added my. Gear Deli Coco, which I think is dark, but it's like majestic and then I added a little more sweetener to it because I really wanted to amp it up and it's great. I'm just going to sit here and eat the whole bowl. This looks like Mustang. The consistency of years now it's Yummy wally is sitting here like dying to I. Not Allowed. I like a lot. I'm GonNa put it on Yogurt. It's really good. It's like if you like hazelnut, this would be a great dip like you could even add chocolate little mini chocolate chips to it, and and like dip little cookies in it. I'm impressed with it. You could make a dip like we sometimes do with Like light whipped topping stirred into a tub. I think if you're a hazelnut fan, you will love this. Do you think it tastes like New Tyler? I don't have like a strong. Taste memory of new tele. I think because I'm not really a huge fan. I think you tell is really way more wretched. A A. Watered down version of new tele when you add the cocoa to it, yeah. No Pun intended with water down when you add the cocoa to it, it definitely helps and you only need a tiny bit of water. So just to remind people with this is it's like a powder and then you add a little water and you mix it up and it becomes the texture of. Peanut butter spread Gu I. Bet it would be good and smoothies to great. It would be great. Cool. The next item we have is also it's yet another nut butter powder but this is a more traditional peanut butter powder by La Canto and Jamie you know more than I do but Canto they make a lot of the they're like a monk fruit sweetener company that makes A ton of different sweetener options that are really good I think. Yeah and monk fruit. If anybody doesn't know it's like the new Stevia. It's like a natural zero calorie or low calorie sweetener and made by Tony, Shalhoub, character monk. Mike he had a safe. He just no, but it's okay. You can make all the peanut butter jokes you want my. You have a free pass you're allowed. So this is just do they usually make products. Are they mostly sweetener based the things that I'm familiar with are mostly sweetener based they might have some other. We'll have to look. Okay. So we'll look we'll look at that Lepanto. They're a trusted company I. Love the fact that this is like a pouch of powdered peanut butter. The stats are very good. It's like some powder peanut butter. The stats are a little higher I don't know why or how that would be because basically, they're just the same thing but fifty calories, two tablespoons and it has monk fruit. So it's not gonNA be unsweetened like some of the powder peanut butters right but no sugar added

Well, it is getting even grimmer up in northern California. The number of missing people has spiked to more than six hundred and the death toll has risen to sixty three. You know, it's pissing off the people of paradise talking about paradise in the past tense talking about the idea that it's not gonna come back that they're not gonna rebuild there. Brock long said as the FEMA administrator the other day. Ryan, Zinke, the interior secretary said something along those lines the other day as well. In in a way that I thought was. Sensitive, but but realistic at the same time. I think Brock long said it best when he was saying we are in the town of paradise will never look the same. And he was talking about the fact that infrastructure gone destroyed. They're going to have to build from scratch, many parts of town and the homes that are still standing. I don't know any of them didn't suffer some amount of damage, but there without power, and we'll be without power for months, potentially. But you're right. There are people out there who are saying I am going to reclaim my town, my business, or my home, or whatever it is sixty seven year old Tom Hurst was one of those people saying when talking about paradise don't use the word was used the word is because we ain't done or just getting restarted. They are bringing in people who who work war zones warzone DNA experts to identify victims. It was a company that was hired specifically by the Buchanan sheriff's department. A n d yeah. The they do this rapid DNA analysis, and they came in Monday, they set up a place on Tuesday just outside of Chico. So that they have access to. To the town of paradise pretty quickly and within a couple of hours, depending on the material. That's brought to them bone fragments or whatever within a couple of hours. They can have basically a DNA profile of whoever that was they sent seven portable labs to the area. Usually this takes weeks, usually whatever's left is shipped to a lab. And you gotta go through the whole rigmarole this expedites the process. The problem is as we mentioned, the the sheriff has had this grim task of every day coming out and making an announcement like this again, my very. Sad duty to report that we located seven additional human remains three of them were founded mcgillion of those three two were found inside structures. One found outside structure three of the three of them were found in the paradise area tumor found inside structures one founded a vehicle and one was found in the concourse area, and that's subject to that individual's found outside. So that brings the death toll up to sixty three the key here is that the list of missing names is now up to six hundred and thirty. Yeah. And when we come back I'll play for you how the sheriff explains that number got higher. How how it is? They can go from one hundred thirty to two hundred to six hundred even though we're getting more and more information about people who have shown up at shelters who are staying with friends.

"If that's the case then we've got to go back and take teach people that any house can flood you've got to you know you gotta go back and do that but here's the real problem the average amount of systems that fema provided in harris county is four to six thousand dollars to get you back on your feet the average nf p pay out one hundred and ten thousand dollars so do you want insurance or do you want fema insurance is the first line of defense fema is only designed to get you back up on your feet and hopefully set you in the right direction not make you hope many americans in take that chance and say female will come in and and and do this i agree with that i think that if you live in a flood zone think you live in a flood zone or as my good friend general anri as once said if you can see water your from your house it might look so get get get the flood insurance but but here's the thing so one of the things that we're also doing with fema something that i'm doing in being delivered about his changing the audience of who we work with okay so it's it's one thing for me to go to emergency management conferences we'll always do that and and you know basically preach to the choir their emergency managers about what needs to be done but what i'm asking is is that we go forward and also start having real dialogue with realtors realtors are realtors in every community multiple realtors in every community across america so how do i tap into the real true says yea shins to say hey get your people talking about being properly insured look how do you valuate in if you know evaluate house that's been mitigated and how does that increase the value rather than decreased the value in starting honest conversations with realtors because they're out in every community dealing with the people that could become disastrous fivers in the future right now these are commonsense solutions i don't i don't care what your politics are what your ideology are i think brock long is offering some common sense solutions that we have to think about and it's not just as i often talk about with floods and other.

"Hundred years or so because of where geographically located to some degree but then you've got the built environment and that changes the water cycle increases ron oh well and then how well our communities actually maintaining the storm drain systems that they have i mean if you drive by your community in the storm drain system is clogged with debris skinny make a phone call to your public works and you know to the city to to say this is got to come out because if the water can't drain down the systems then it backs up in your street and your home well we saw that here in the atlanta area couple years ago in the downtown connector two major interstates come together right in downtown atlanta and there was significant flooding there because the drains were clogged with leaves so it's very clear we're talking with female administrator brock long happy to have him here at the weather channel today yeah i i want to kind of circle back because i mean i i want to give you a fair chance to respond to a very large audience here about this new study have you had a chance to really talk about it because i know there's a lot of innuendo and out there on what have you had a i imagine you might not have even had a chance to really dig deep into it just came out yeah it's been the topic of conversation and rightfully so so so where fema says is one death is one death team in we don't wanna see loss of life ever you know i think that you know there's a discrepancy between direct and indirect s and so i think you know the harvard study i don't know if it's valid or not i haven't had time to really dig into the algorithms that they use or whatever else but i i think it's important to point out that governor rose say yo is is on top of this too he he commissioned a study by george washington university that hasn't hit yet to understand the the true impacts and deaths as a result of maria the the next thing is is that you know if this is the standard going forward well then you're going to have to look at every hurricane in in in past history that we've been you know working on because there are always a high number.

"Sheet what you and your colleagues are doing one of the things that really sort of we talked about flooding in houston an and harvey i've written on this many times d you think that people just misunderstand a flood threat as compared to soar say a wind threat from hurricane or tornado people will drive through a flooded road because man i gotta get there and get my kid from daycare just got to get there i always argue that there's just this misperception of the threat of water well i think there's a misperception of how hurricanes attacked communities because you know let's face it you know intensity and categories determined by win speech sustained wind speed it it's not you know the category of a storm is not determined by storm surge impacts or the number of tornadoes i think eighty percent of all land falling hurricanes bring tornadoes with them exactly and then copious amounts of rainfall which the houston area is has been through before so if you remember two thousand one with alice allison wasn't a strong yeah it was it was several billion dollar event flooded as well and that's the same thing when a storm loses steering currents in it it loses its forward speed that means different things about how the hazards are going to impact you and it's tough to explain that in one hundred forty characters through a tweet to the to the american public right you know that when a storm slows down installs out it's going to dump rain for days and days and days and it backs up the response it backs up a lot of things but i think the problem is is that we've got to have an honest conversation going back to believe that resilience is at the local level will local elected officials and state officials and you've got to start passing building codes and they've got to start you know implementing proper land use planning the built environment you know i've seen studies in mitigation studies that would suggest that the built environment the newly built environment would calls roughly thirty to thirty one percent of the of the flooding that we see yeah i talked about that even with ellicott city i mean ellicott city is naturally as flooded many times over the last.
