"burlington" Discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money
"Bryce and burlington is actually the smallest compared to the other to the experience is generally the same in all of these stores right. It's like a totally random selection. There's like a dazzled. Michael kors belt next to like some kids pajamas. And i don't know like old chocolate bars. Yes the idea is to draw people in with the promise of treasure hunt. That's the term the company actually uses. But you know the ideas. You might not find exactly what you wanted but you might also hit an amazing discount and this idea. This treasure hunt idea is central to both the story of burlington success in the pandemic and its decision to shut down the website. That i'm looking for. Burlington is not the place that i go. That's jamaica holloway. Who loves shopping at burlington and a big part of it is never knowing what kind of deal you'll find out typically just like i'm rousing or whatever or i go and get a lotta cheese and seasonings along with guay. How often do you go in for some pans and leave with like a frying pan. Oh my god. I every single time. The other week there was a miniature teapot. the six ninety nine and the the regular retail price was like twenty four. It's a huge discount. And she says for her. The prices these discounts were exactly what kept her coming back even during the pandemic. It's hard to overstate the draw of a discount during an economic downturn when people's finances get tough they turned to cheaper stores and often they continue shopping there even when things improve but of course. We're talking not just about a recession but also global health crisis. This was a time when people really cut back on shopping in person..
Some Pedestrian-Friendly Street Changes May Stay After The Pandemic Ends
"Walking more since the pandemic began, there's been a sharp increase in pedestrian fatalities. Leading to an increased urgency in many cities to recreate streets as shared spaces instead of solely being focused on cars. Bath Osborne is with the nonprofit advocacy groups Smart Growth America. We have pretended that humans outside of a car didn't exist or were disposable and designed our roadways for only one user. Those who had a big metal contraction around them. As board says the pandemic has prompted cities from Oakland in Seattle to Louisville in Burlington, Vermont, to experiment with new Street uses. Some include outdoor dining and food truck applauses. Others have displays of artwork or urban playgrounds. Well, some will be temporary. Others may remain long after the pandemic ends.
Learning from a Failed Tiny House: Moisture, Mold, and Rot with Chris Murphy
"I want to kind of get into the main topic. I which is Kind of what. What has happened with your tiny house. and i was just hoping we can kind of start at the at the at the start of when the problems arose. So how long were you living in your tiny house. Just like happily unaware of anything going wrong. Yeah i mean in terms of the the major issue. We've worked through recently. That's the reason. I'm on this this episode. That started back in the late summer. Early fall we noticed a kind of fungus growing at the corner of our floor and wall by kitchen and we. We tried to kind of kind of came back and we were like well. I think we need to have this address than and you know at this point. We've been living in about for almost three years and once we dug deeper we discovered a much much worse. Problem with the mold and rotten are sub floor. So yeah. I've been with three years at that point when this all kind of started. Okay so you see just noticed this fungus growing and so what did you what did you do. Yes i mean. The first time we saw we we tried to we. We did the kind of diy solution so we kind of cut it off the ground. We abide some mold killing disinfectant solution that we bound when we research thought maybe that was it but within a couple of weeks it was back at that point. We then called ambled mediation cyrus around a nearby. Think from new hampshire. And that's when they came in to look at it. Okay so the what did they do when they when they get there. Yes so he took a look at it and you know he. He recognized that we probably had to tear like remove the kitchen cabinets. Tear up some floorboards and really gap a source of bit spray. Down needed disinfect into the the sub floor and then early backyard. Basically okay so and that and so. That's what you did so you remove the kitchen cabinets. Yeah this was in early november so we had to actually also contractor kind of a a normal kitchen remodeling contractor to do the first and third day we should have been removed the cabinets and after the motor mediation on the second day but the cabinets back in place and re put a few new floorboards back in and ripped up so now your bio says that you live in burlington but but are used. You're not currently living in burlington because currently living in your tiny house right. I am calling in from new york because when that happened and that plan you know started on the on the third day where the second actually win. The mold remediation Specialists to look at it. He he removed a lot. More floorboards thought and the suppler was a little softer than he expected. And he poked around but kind of you know he didn't want to go any further because he thought he got the mold and that's what we're paying him for us. The next day the contractor came in to put back the flooring and he starts poking around and poked right through and he started ripping up and he called me. And i came over from. I was working at a co working. Space in burlington came came by and he was like. I'm not gonna touch us anymore. Because this is bigger than you're paying me and i don't want to charge you for just a rip apart the sub floor and that's what it all started and basically fast forward three days in my wife and i had ripped up the majority of myself floor packed up car and head down to new york in pandemic. We had nowhere else to stay but going home and staying family.
One Thing Millennials Aren't Killing? Public Transportation
"Millennials are often blamed for killing things. You know like gulf mayonnaise vacations marriage. It's almost become a cliche. Well there is one. Many millennials and their younger counterparts in gen z save public transportation urban living concern for the environment and a lack of romanticism. About cars are some other reasons why. Npr's mvp has more. There's one word that twenty four year old michelle. Santa maria keeps using when she talks about public transit. I feel like it's so cute. it's just cute. it's so cute. i think it's cute. I mean it's clear that for her. Public transportation is about a lot more than just getting from point a to point b. santa. Maria is one of the many millennials who aren't as car crazy as their parents generation. She belongs to a facebook group called. And brace yourself. It's a mouthful. New urbanism seems for transit oriented teens. The acronym is numb tots. Which is what they call themselves. There are more than two hundred thousand members. And they share funny posts but also debate transportation policies and fantasize about a world in which nobody needs a car but the pandemic has crushed that dream across the country drop in ridership have led to budget cuts and service rollbacks which means a lot of trains and buses are coming less frequently. If at all said the honest it's infuriating in a way. William clark is also a number top. He's twenty five years old and lives in philadelphia. He worries about transit workers as well as the commuters who ride buses and subways not because they love them but because they don't have a choice because when you reduce the amount of service you have to pack more people onto your vehicles at least a higher possibility of contract code. It's actually pretty scary. He works from home now. But he's trying to support the system in other ways. He's a member of a transit. Riders union in philadelphia where he advocates for the needs of writers in the city. Who might not be able to make public meetings across the country. Twenty five year old. Alex lee is advocating for transit. In san jose california he got himself elected to the state legislature and appointed to the transportation committee. If you start putting transit then you're really hurting the people that depend on it. Most people who don't have access to cars or people who rely on these little life against soon for work and lobbies are essential workers twenty-seven-year-old tens and trump used to be one of those essential workers. He was an icu nurse until he moved to vermont in burlington mason wide. And here's the other thing. It's the middle of january. We just had a snowfall and biplane is just as clear as any road. He left in part because he feared for his life biking on the streets and the commute on the subway could take as long as three hours. So what numb tots like him. Think about the new. Us president whose nickname after all is amtrak. Joe and who's appointed a millennial people judge as transportation secretary some are hopeful but ciampo is not impressed is actually millennial. He seems ancient. Let me look at this age. I'm fairly certain that he is to get on my phone and be like. Oh dang is he we google it and it turns out buddha. Judge is thirty nine so so i guess he counters but it doesn't think like a millennial no i don't i don't think so compel thinking like a millennial means not thinking like a politician like those politicians from previous generations who promised major upgrades to public transit systems and never delivered a peasley npr

MassDOT To Test Wrong-Way Driver Highway Alert System
"The past 10 years, 80 people have died in crashes involving wrong way drivers on Massachusetts highways mass dot now is working with a local company to create a system that when a driver enters the wrong way on a ramp radar system triggers warning lights along that ramp to get drivers to correct their mistake. System also alerts police and mascots 24 Hour Operation Center of the On ramp to Route 1 28 near the Burlington Mall or among 17 exits. That'll be part of a pilot program starting next year
MassDOT To Test Wrong-Way Driver Highway Alert System Starting In Boston Area
"How to stop wrong way drivers in Massachusetts. It's a big enough problem that it's something that we have been regularly trying to address, mascot Administrator Jonathan Gulliver telling WBZ TV. The state is launching a pilot program to stop head on crashes before they can occur. When a driver enters the wrong way on a ramp. New radar system will trigger warning lights along the rap and even some billboards. We can activate other highway signs to give drivers that may be in the area. A message And the state will begin installing this new system after the first of the year, starting with the on ramps to route 1, 28 and Burlington, the Rams to the Pike and Olson and South Boston Route three on the South Shore in Plymouth, Route six and Barnstable and Route 1 95 in Fall River. The state hopes to get it up and running by the summer of
Small Cities Are A Big Draw For Remote Workers During The Pandemic
"All the remote working that americans have done since the start of the pandemic is changing the labor market. It can be a good thing for workers who can now live where they want and it also means that smaller cities like burlington vermont. Which were about to visit here could benefit from the heck your report in vermont public radio liam elder connors has more sierra allred works for a tech company in salt lake city utah and she was not expecting to move to vermont this year but when her husband got his psychiatric residency in this state she brought her job with her alread. Works remotely from a town. Just outside of burlington vermont's largest city. She says the pandemic helped shift her company's attitude about remote work i know from my coworkers. Nobody's been back to our office building since the pandemic started everybody's been working remotely and it's been going splendidly. Allred says vermont was in her first choice but it had access to the outdoors and internet. I want to be able to work on some algorithms. Some good code break for lunch and be able to walk out and take a walk down for st path or go sit by the river. Vermont has the second smallest and second oldest population in the country. State leaders have tried for years to find ways to attract more young people. Mike allred and what she likes about the burlington area its proximity to nature in generally good broadband has made it ideal for remote working. David bradbury president of vermont center for emerging technologies says for years. The state has had a small but growing community of remote workers mostly in tech building over time and these trends have only accelerated under pandemic. It's not just workers who stand to benefit from remote options companies also have something to gain now that physical location is less of a requirement marine michelini resident who works for. Ibm says remote. Work opens up a whole new pool of workers. Machelandon says her team has been remote since she joined in two thousand sixteen. And that's a huge difference in hiring someone that you've been friends with on twitter for a few years you've never met them in real life that you know that they have the skills you need you can reach out and they can join your team. More remote work options could be a big help for smaller cities. Like burlington and four vermont. A whole last year estate program offered grants to remote workers if they moved to vermont and that initiative brought in one hundred and forty new workers but this year the pandemic has made vermont more attractive to new residents. Now the question is does that continue. Jeff cars president of an economic consulting firm based in vermont. A recent survey by researchers at the university of vermont found a third of people who moved to the state during the pandemic say. They're likely or very likely to stay. Car estimates that could boost the state's population by almost eleven thousand. But he says people might leave once. There's a vaccine or treatment for covid nineteen. It's up to us to make it sticky by controlling things like you know making sure the cost of living is there that there's affordable housing options for these folks allred from salt lake city. Says she and her husband aren't planning to stay in vermont forever. We don't know yet. We will end up. But we're looking colorado montana wyoming. Some of these areas are just breathtaking. All smaller rural areas already can continue to enjoy the outdoors and thanks to remote work. Keep her job for npr news. I'm liam elder connors in burlington vermont.

Winter storm warning issued for several Minnesota, western Wisconsin counties
"Now the most intense part of the storm is west of Burlington is between Lake Geneva and East Troy specifically. Off highway 67 11. There's a small town spring prairie, but it is moving to the north and to the east. If you are just getting into your car, A tornado warning has been issued for Walworth and Racine counties until 4 45. So right now that's set to expire in another 15 minutes. It could, of course be extended, It could move two counties that air to the North and the East. Keeping an eye on that. But right now, a fleet farm storm team alert a tornado warning for Walworth and Racine counties until 4 45 important to point out this doesn't mean that they've spotted an actual tornado. But they do believe that there's rotation and conditions that make it likely that there's tourney attic activity, and that's the reason the warning has been issued pretty
How to Work with a Professional Tiny House Mover: Pricing, Timing, and Logistics with Taylor Tefft
"Tell Taft. Welcome to the show. Great. Thank you so much for having me. You're very welcome I was hoping we could just start by maybe you could tell us how how you got into this moving tiny houses and and how long you've been doing it. Yeah. Absolutely. So in two, thousand, eighteen My father and dumb a good close friend. had. Stated that you know they wanted to get into the logistics business and really just start moving. Cars and trailers in different units all over. And You know I I wanted to work and do it. You know and help them. So when I first started out, I did a lot of research and obviously you know instagram facebook user big time in I started seeing these tiny houses that people were building and then I saw you know sometimes people moving them I was like, wow, that'd be really super interesting to help people move these generate. Deliveries to people. All over the world. and. You know about I'd say about six months in I really started getting in touch with tiny house builders on liberation top a top line of ours I reached out to them and just told him a little bit about our. You know our our company in really it just took off from there. That's awesome. So The company has been around for a super long time, but it sounds like you kind of specifically decided to focus on on tiny houses, which which is awesome. We need tie the tiny house movement needs companies to focus on US and provide solutions. Yeah absolutely we could see there was a need for there was definitely a demand and you have to make sure you have the. The right movers move your tiny home. You know that's your. That's what you're going to be living in. You know. Yeah absolutely. Yeah making sure you have the right trucks in. Took practice runs and learning the INS and outs of different homes but eventually you know you. You start to learn it. Awesome to maybe you could walk me through. What the process is like forgetting a tiny house moved I mean. We could almost pretend that that I'm your client. My tiny houses is ear inn in Burlington Vermont and and I want to get it moved to another state. Yup. Absolutely on so it really starts off just like that. Most people either call or email they find us on you know online on Google or they are recommended to us which we get a lot of those. So the first thing I would ask for is you know he'll built the tiny home and All the dimensions of the tiny home itself. You know what's the length of the unit is at standard legal with? In is it standard legal height and transport it? Would also ask for the weight. So. Does it matter if it's self built versus professionally bill? Though it really depends We generally ask for a photo of the unit just because we have experienced obviously some tiny houses are self felt. That may need a little bit more tension and you know than others, but ultimately we try and you know stay. Open minded and still generate a inefficient WHOA for them. Got It. So it's about evaluating the do. So what? Yeah. Actually what, what do you look at in those photos? What are what are the things that you're kind of looking at? As a transportation specialist to to decide you know. What you can do? Yeah. Good, question. So I asked to send you know as many photos as they can. So I can generally kind of take a look at you know the silent trailer that they use them. Only notice a lie on sell built trailers is still. Alive people, purchase old mobile trailers, which they don't realize you know a lot of times. They don't have breaks out they don't have lights. And Mobile home tires are not the same as like sander tiny house trailers that had entered tires on them. There's a large difference dot it. Yeah. Well, if if they're listeners to this show or have read any of my books or resources, then hopefully they're not buying a used mobile home trailer 'cause that that I agree is is not usually a great idea to take a plastic and aluminum mobile home and then build a stick framed tiny house on that foundation. I agree yeah. I know a lot of people they don't realize that or you know sometimes we do have people who contract with like self builders and just wanted me on my late builders in building their backyard which again, that's totally fine. But you know with that being said, we have to think about how many tires are gonNA blow when we're pulling a mobile home trailer across the entry in. and getting magnetic lights to attach to the trailer and. All kinds of sorts of different things. But ultimately, we'll still move the unit as long as we feel it's safe and You know still do everything we can.
Half of the Great Barrier Reef's corals have died since 1995
"Say more than half the corals that make up the Great Barrier Reef have died over the last quarter century. The die off blamed on record temperatures. There is no time to lose. That's the stark warning from Australian researchers about the health of the world's largest reef system. They say it's coral has been under a sustained attack by warmer seas driven by climate change. This causes bleaching under stress. The corals expel symbiotic algae, which lives In their tissues and gives them their color and energy. The study asserts that this is compromising the great barrier reef stability to recover that is the BBC's Phil Mercer. In Burlington. There's now a name for the
Battery Rollout Plan Plus Elon Musk Production Email
"We're here today we are talking about a potential roadmap for tests roll out of their new forty, six eighty battery cells, and then we have a few other news stories to go through on Tesla's well, we'll start off with batteries where we have quite a bit of new information coming from a very active Ilan on twitter today and the first tweet I want to highlight here is on the forty-six, eighty sal and gigabyte lint yuan in response to whole Mars on twitter says quote Berlin will. Use Forty eighty sell with structural battery pack and front and rear single piece castings. Also new paint system. A lot of new technology will happen in Berlin, which means significant production risk Fremont and Shanghai will transition in about two years when new tack is proven and quote this whole situation with the ramp up of Gigabit, Lan has caused quite a bit of confusion because we do expect that to happen sometime pretty early in twenty twenty one probably sometime in q two would be the start production. But Tesla on the other hand side a lot of the technology during Battery Day was still in sort of a pilot phase and I think there were a lot of sumptious that initially this new Salle would be used in the Plaid Model S, which we know isn't expected until late twenty, twenty one. So that's where the confusion comes in of. Okay. What cells are going to be used in that initial motto why Production Pretty early next year from Giga Berlin with this tweet from Ilana it. Appears that we now have a pretty conclusive answer that from the beginning, it seems like tussle will be trying to use those forty six eighty tablets, battery cells, as well as these of of sell to pack or released sell to vehicles structure battery format as for the chemistry used in those cells. Tesla during the Battery Day presentation split up into three groups, iron based Nicholas, manganese, and high nickel in terms of cathodes and the model why image did appear in the nickel plus manganese section of that. Approach. So presumably, that's what we would see in the model. Why though did add in another tweet that quote we do expect to make heavy use of LLP for medium range cars and stationary storage and quote with L. B.. Being with the modern phosphate I think one of the key questions around the ramp up of the model y from Berlin is how Tesla handles that and the potential osborne effect that that could have on Mata y from let's say Shanghai or from Fremont this could be one of those ways if actually starts off with a lithium iron phosphate model Y in Berlin that would be. Obviously, a lower end vehicle that may have specs more comparable to what Tesla's producing today and Fremont, and presumably soon in Shanghai on the other hand, it would be a little bit unusual for Tesla to start production with some of that lower and vehicle usually they start on the higher end that work their way down. So I think whichever way Tesla approaches it is going to have its own set of issues and that's going to be one of the most interesting things to see how it gets handled. Next year we'll set that aside for now I wanNA talk more about the production and the timelines. Year homers reaction to this on twitter I'm not GonNa read all of it here but basically, he said that you had sandbagged the presentation during battery died in terms of of the timelines and he replied to those tweets by saying quote prototypes or a piece of cake. A high volume production of a new technology is extremely hard takes much longer than people think to climb the production s curve I can't emphasize enough that production is by far the hard part and quote this was something that Yulon emphasized consistently throughout the day presentation saying that not all the stuff is fully functional yet in a full. High speed production type of way just working really right now in a pilot line and with somewhat low yields or not yields up to what they would like quite yet. So that's what Tesla is working on figuring out right now at that pilot line, and once they do that hopefully, they can expand the concepts used in that pilot line pretty quickly in Gigabyte Lynn but I think that is the uncertainty that remains if the main issue is yield, Tesla knows how to settle this stuff up and they can get some production out of it. They may just not be able to produce at a higher. Rate for some period of time until those yields improve, obviously it's going to be more capital efficient if Tesla can figure that out on the pilot line before expanding dramatically in. Giga. Burlington but it's not like it's a binary thing. There's a lot of new technology here a lot of different steps in this process that Tesla's working on making more efficient and I'm sure some of those advancements those new technologies are ready to go right now with high yields while others such as the dry battery electrode process will probably take tesla a little bit more time to perfect. But just because a part of that. Process is imperfect yet doesn't mean that there's not going to be any production. It just means that production is going to be constrained until TUSLA can improve that the other element here that we haven't talked about yet is what about Giga Texas it seems pretty clear that if did you, Berlin is going to be using the new cell right off the bat. Then Gig a Texas probably also doing the same as we've talked about the targeted date for first substantial completion forget Texas is may first twenty twenty one. So we put all that together. It seems like by Q. Three next year Tesla is aiming. To have these new cells being produced at three locations, the pilot line and Fremont Gigabyte Lynn and access. So let's breakdown how this all might fit together and how it might spread across various product lines and will start with a couple of points. Tesla. Made at Battery Day. So the first is the plan Tesla said that in twenty twenty two, they hope to produce one hundred gigawatt hours of battery cells in house. We also know that the pilot line in Fremont, they hope to get that to output of ten gigawatt hours per year. But over time they hope to have each assembly line be capable. Of An output of twenty gigawatt hours per year. So piecing all these things together, I've put together a hypothetical forty-six eighty battery roadmap emphasis on hypothetical because a lot of this is just guesswork at this point in time but hopefully, we can kind of use this as a starting point and have a discussion about it and slowly gain more confidence in this roadmap as time goes by. So to orientate those of you that are watching on video on the left hand side, I have the products and then a hypothetical average capacity for each battery pack inside of those products then I have a table with. The number of units from each location the Fremont Pilot Line Giga Berlin and Gigi Texas, and then a second table showing the amount of batteries that would be required in gigawatt hours for that level of production each year
Activists Block ICE Agents From Making Arrest In Lynn, North of Boston
"NewsRadio and Linda standoff with ice agents as residents mobilized to prevent a deportation. The Lynn item tells the story of the ice ban apprehended that apprehended a Guatemalan immigrant and active member of the Lin community yesterday on Floyd Floyd Street. They placed him in an unmarked black van as his daughter watched on as ice agents waited for another family member to show up to take care of the girl who is a minor. Family members contacted Lin United for change. They reached out to community activists who quickly mobilized about 40 people arrived. They sat on the ground. A sit in tow, literally prevent that ban to block the van from leaving. They sat down in the middle of the street, blocking the vans path. About an hour later, the man identified as rebel Yo Gonzalez was allowed to leave the vehicle. He hugged his daughter and waved teary thanks to the crowd as a follow up here. Gonzalez is required to show up to an immigration appointment at the Ice office in Burlington. Ice officials could not be reached for comment on this incident. That was published in the Lin
"burlington" Discussed on The Dave Gram Show on WDEV

Want To Dismantle Racism In Science? Start In The Classroom
"All right today in the show were unscrewing what's not working in science education around representation and racism, and how to teach science in a more inclusive way and idea from listener and scientists Esther Kunle yes. Thanks to Esther we went looking for K., through twelve teachers teaching at the intersection, of Science, and racial justice at all grade levels I want to start with. Let me see fears. She's a post doctoral fellow in the collaborative for stem education and outreach at Vanderbilt. Okay. She's a black scientist. Out in science classrooms Tennessee in among fifth graders. At this one particular school, she is a total rockstar. So walk into a classroom and they'll be like. Yeah it's me. It's me everyone autographs today. We lit up each others world. Our say, let me see a drops into fifth seventh and eighth grade. Science classrooms like a real life. Miss Frizzle I'm not kidding you. She wheels the cart between classes clattering with beakers and different very interesting looking chemicals and students. They're so intrigued they run up to our like remind wife we've. Just all that stuff and then when she's in the classroom, let me see a doesn't just help them run experiments. She'll also delve into the ethics of designing an experiment. Okay. She'll talk about how wrong the Tuskegee study was, which is winning scientists studied syphilis in black men and withheld treatment Sushi's like introducing bioethics to kids as important part of the curriculum. Yup. Scientists are presented as very human herself included and her students can totally handle these conversations. We see what's happening with this generation with them protest and they're speaking out on, they're not having it. They're not. They're not going to allow us to continue to destroy their and our point is that if science teachers can tap into that compassion and That curiosity and show the way that scientists have messed up. Kids might take an interest in science I love, and if we can't do that, then we are GonNa lose them and I think it's hard for minority kids. They already don't see themselves as the teacher or the Christmas doing the science. So that already unemployed simple block of well, that's just what the old white man with the crazy hairdo. and. So another thing let me see Ya does is namedrop scientists of color as often as possible. She'll talk about a physicist did Eisler medical physicists had he and Ecole, green astronauts, Joseph Akaba, and genetic APPs. She designed a paper rocket lesson around them and this helps kids develop a mental picture of a career in stem beyond a doctor or a dentist. This is so cool because it's not just about teaching science history, right? It's also helping students see themselves as scientists and for Gretchen Craig. Turner. The next teacher I, want to introduce you to. This level of engagement becomes even more important students get older and start to you know get into their teenage years and develop their own opinions their own opinions about science. Yeah. You know to be critical of it. Oh. Yeah. That was not in my k. through twelve science education hers either I don't remember a lot of writing or opinions being a part of science. In fact, it was very much I believe taught the opinions didn't belong in science right that it was supposed to be a right answer Gretchen teaches. At Burlington Edison High. School. In Washington state she is white and her classroom to be as inclusive as possible and to reflect the diversity of the student body and in her first year of teaching a biotech class. This was back in two thousand, ten in English teacher gave her a copy of the book. The immortal life of Henrietta lacks was like you should teach the steer students. Yeah. So the history of the Hilo Cell Line Yep. So Henrietta, lacks cancer cells were used for years by scientists without her family's knowledge cells that. One. Of the most important cell lines in medical research, her case raises so many questions about patients, rights. Yep questions raised in this book. So Gretchen got a bunch of hardcover books for her class and we read it and. It shaped how I teach in tremendous ways because the students responded to it. So strongly, you know they were excited maybe not at first I still get a lot of Turner. This isn't an English class, right but but they got into it. So into it, it is a six week unit the book in a Science Class. STUDENTS DO SELL labs while they're reading and they journal to. Okay so they're jotting down notes on different themes like medical apartheid informed consent lab science, and at the end they write a big paper and also oftentimes in class, there will be students who who's own families have experienced medical apartheid in the. Effects of that and I think some of the students and see themselves in the story of the lacks family. The conversations become really personal and probing not. You know necessarily what you'd expect in science class but exactly what Gretchen is hoping for well I, think what you know many young people ultimately want from their teachers is to be seen into be heard. And so if the science curriculum. if they feel seen and heard through that curriculum, they're more invested. So when her students learn about genetic testing, Gretchen includes a film about the innocence project and they're a group that uses DNA testing to exonerate those who've been wrongfully imprisoned. And Gretchen has her students, write poetry and songs as kind of oaths to those wrongfully convicted my blood, my skin, my hair, all held the key to my freedom DNA. My eyes glazed over desperate for relief with a pain. I now understood my hand reaches for I. Don't Know How often you're around teenagers. But the. Teenagers of this just tremendous sense of justice and what is right you know, and so those conversations are often very passionate for students But it's also the world that they live in. Wow I mean kwong, there's so many things in here. That are so powerful in and I know there's a lot of science teacher who listened to shortwave who might want to incorporate racial justice in history into their teaching too I mean, where do they look well Gretchen and let me see a- had the same advice which is at teachers should fill in the gaps in their own racial understanding I learn about the history of science or their field, and that's exactly what the last teacher I spoke with is doing. Vigia satiety is a college professor at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and looking critically at her own field statistics has been hard painful work. You know I honestly I just feel like I'm I missed something that was really important to learn about my discipline and I'm I'm a little bit mad at myself for not being curious on my own to figure out the origins of things and she has been startled to realize the full extent to which modern statistics draws upon the work of you. Genesis Francis Colton Karl Pearson Ronald Fisher. Some of the most foundational tools and stem like the normal distribution curve were applied to support their racist and eugenicist theories tools that we. Use today, but we don't really stop to think about the people who created them and why they created them. So the is trying to stop to teach yourself where these came from, but to not rush the process with some slapdash curriculum, she wants to incorporate these historical into her classes with care I want to give it the space deserves and of course, and not not to feel like this awkward add on that people can optionally engage in in a way that centers the students Vigie like all the teachers I spoke with designs, her classes by asking herself who's being left behind with this material, and how can I bring them along? That's what can be gained from. And anti-racist science education I think all of us in our minds have been in or heard of course where the professor says look to the laugh looked the right. One of you won't be here at the end of this time or you know something horrible this should not ever be uttered in a classroom. I say look to your left to your right like I. Want you all to stay. I want you all the love my field as much as I. Love my field because there's so many interesting things you could do with it and we really could use your wonderful mind and our discipline. We could use your perspective and the things that you bring. So basically to change science, we have to change how we teach science. To fix the lab gotta fix the classroom.

Christopher Bedford's piece in the federalist that I thought it was a very good firsthand examination of. What it's like right now to be at a trump rally, the level of passion and the connection that he makes. You needed to hear this before we move into the next segment. because. As.

But by a prominent conservative figure who's affiliated with the Claremont Institute. which is a major conservative thing take. He's raising the open possibility. that the left is planning to do literally anything to stop trump from leading. Right, up to it including a coup. Not What people start saying stuff like this I usually roll my eyes. This is still America right. Look at everything that's happened this year. This would only be necessary of trump so deeply threatened. Some of the highly powerful elites that thought that they ran our country. Because prior to trump. I don't even think Reagan had this kind of connection with his supporters. We have seen so many things happened this year that we would have thought never would have happened. But it's a year that started with the strongest economy in American history. And I think the overwhelming likelihood that trump was going to win. How far will they go? I started the program today by saying, I was planning a seed. The seed was the statement that Hillary Clinton made to Joe Biden which she said I he should not under any circumstances concede.

"It's remarkable to me the Kamala Harris. Can Be. So brazen. That she can demnd. She was the leader of this. She can damned Brad Cava. I'd an allegation. Of inappropriate sexual contact pressure. Thirty five forty years ago when he was pushing high school into college. Without any proof that it ever happened in judging decades later. and. The same Kamala Harris is just ignoring the fact that only two months ago. Jacob Blake is actually the coast of sexual assault. There's a term called compartmentalizing. So did if one-sided remember where I saw it but Michael Chiklis in the shield is out of their. Shield is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. It's one of the first show. Is that just it was? Good guys are bad. Guys are good but good guys. They're all bad. Guys are also good guys in. So Ati was. Very flawed police precinct. and Michael Chiklis played. Guided Vic mackey the probably the dirtiest cop in the history of America. But somehow, it always seemed like dirtiness could be justified and Michael Chiklis is doing this interview in which he said. The show was all about compartmentalizing. That, you could show just how terrible vic mackey was, but also show in a different context that everything that he was doing justified that you could somehow compartmentalized and see the one in terms of the other. The Kamar metallization that liberals are capable of is to be extraordinary. Without regard whether or not Jacob Blake shooting was wrong or not. You don't have to turn Jacob Blake into assayed. You'd have to do that but the left and the media have felt the need to take somebody. Who is by all indications? A bad guy. And turn them into a wonderful person just because he was on the receiving end of shooting that many people want to criticize. What if Jacob Blake is somebody that was wanted for eleven murders still doesn't mean a cop can just got him down ready Raisin. But you would think that we would then show enough restraint to not nominate the person for some sort of incredible valor. The fact of the matter is is that we generally set up our laws to protect people who Are Less than perfect human beings? This story though and the need for so many people to turn it into a narrative incredibly proud innocent person gunned down by monster top. You could have any take you out to have on the Jacob Blake shooting, but you don't get the right to redefine the individuals that are involved and create your own terms it even though it may make it more comfortable for you to deal with it that way. Whether Blake was guilty of that sexual assault from July or not. Shouldn't affect whether it at the officer you should've used lethal force or not. Likewise. Whether, he's guilty of it or not shouldn't affect the decision by television stations to pretend the tag criminal charges of that incident didn't occur. And for the vice presidential candidate tried to be vice president of the United States. To be saying, she's proud of a man who's facing felony sexual assault charges. That's a warped world. News Talk Eleven, thirty W I S. Mark late afternoon show. Planted a seed, the beginning of the program, and we're GONNA try to grow that into a tree. Coming up after the news break that we're going to roll into. On the notion of Jacob Blake. And how the story has been characterized, which has been the subject of the last two segments of the program. I go back to what I was talking about in the first. Hour of the show. How you almost. We want to believe something and we end up feeling the need to manipulate facts in order to get to the conclusion. THAT WE WANNA draw. I don't know if Jacob Blake is a rapid. Sir Dot. We do know that the victim was to him and often those are the kinds of cases in which consent becomes something that has to be debated often a trial. He was accused of breaking into a woman's house. He knew the woman and having sexual intercourse with her against her consent. That's what he had the open war for at the time that now two months later he was in Kenosha tried to. Get away from the authorities. The Third Degree Sexual Assault Count in Wisconsin is what is used for sexual intercourse without threat of violence. In other words, there wasn't a weapon or the was it an implied threat of violence? It's the sort of charge that is brought forward when someone has sexual assault with someone else against their will but there was not a implied threat of violence. It's often the charge that comes out in date rape kinds of situations. Sexual. Intercourse against someone's will however is ripe. That's what he's charged with. Again In situations like this, where the victim is known to the individual, often there are two sides of the story as we all know and I haven't heard anybody side of the story. In this particular case, we do know that Blake had been wadded with an open warrant for that. But he is certainly an accused rapist. That's what he is. And I think before people start putting forward him as this wonderful incredible human being we ought to factor that party at. You could draw whatever conclusion you WANNA. Draw out the shooting. But you don't get the right to just take it a racer facts that we have out there including the fact that this charges out there..

interview With Rik Emmett
"Welcome back. It's Eddie trunk on this week's podcast. Thank you so much for listening We start off as mentioned with Rik Emmett of triumph coming up second and just a bit. It'll be Rachel Bolan of skid row a very, very deluxe expanded double dip addition to great interviews for you this week I. Hope you enjoy him. We start with RIK Emmett right now. How are you rick? I'm Great Eddie how are you? Good how you in Canada how are you home? Yeah, yeah I live in Burlington, which is sort of a western city suburb, of Toronto and It's been great here. Actually you know it's I haven't minded sort of being isolated and. You know it hasn't had too much effect at actually allow me to become a little bit more creative so I've been enjoying myself. Well that's the thing you know all this pandemic time all the artists I've been talking to all seem to have a different take. Some are really chomping at the bit to go out there and do things and others are enjoying the reconnect with family and not used to being home. This long others are taking the time to do really creative things. Right record do streaming videos what what's been the focus for you. In this time I mean you you are semi retired from touring anyway weren't you? Yeah I had sort of stepped back from touring at the beginning of twenty nineteen. So I was getting used to it and I had told my agent. Well, you know I'll go out and try if you want to necessarily have to fly two gigs. But if you put some stuff together that can drive to maybe I'll try some of that and then along came covert thing and those got bumped and canceled and so but I was already getting used to being off the road. anyways. So I don't really miss the road and I mean. I do Miss Playing And and having that I interaction with the crowd and that energy you know but I don't miss you know airplanes and hotels and taxi cabs and all the rest of it. You know a And the thing. That's weird. Eddie like it was almost like a retirement was a great career move for me because. Round Hill records was putting out the triumph stuff said, he would you like us to put a all your back catalog and I went well sure that it'd be great. It's nice to have somebody believing me. So all of the albums that I made after I left triumphed they've just digitally released him and then I was sitting around going I. Think you know I still want record and stuff when I was writing tunes in When I in nineteen, sixty, two, I don the Bob Dylan record, it was just called Bob Dylan and it was just a cousteau Qatar voice voices. You know all my years I've never really done a whole album like that. So I'm going to do a project like that. So I put that out on my website and then I I was. Writing a book of poetry and it looks like a publisher wants to make a deal so that I can do book of poetry and a memoir. So it's like one thing led to another thing about to nosing before I. Knew It. I had like a completely full calendar, and now of course you know I'm doing all of this promos on calling you. What is what is strung out troubadours I saw link for that. What is after the newest thing you're doing? Now Strung out troubadours was a thing. There was a guy named Dave Dunlop who played in my band and he actually went try and fly the reunion Gig in. Sweden in an Oklahoma Day was actually in the in the triumph hand as well playing rhythm. Guitar and Stuff. So Dave and I had a little duo thing like a lot of times my touring and got to the point where I was doing a lot of solo stuff I wanted something else and so I use the piano player for a while and then I kinda got the edge to have a little bit more of a rock and roll approach. So two guitars made it a little bit more kind of versatile and so Dave is the guy and we did it for you and then I said, Hey, you know what? We should do an album together and put it out. We can sell it at emerge table, and so that was the birth of the troubadours and we did three albums. and. Yeah Round Hill bought my rights out to those days still has his side of it. He he didn't sell them. So he stands to make some more mechanical royalty. Whatever there is to be made these days, right Yeah. So I wanNA talk to you. I. WanNa ask you some triumph stuff of course but before. But before that, let's let's let me cover the reason you're calling which you mentioned the release of your albums after triumph ended for you and I think rick that people would probably be surprised to learn how many records there are, and there were a lot of people that sort of. Categorized what you did after triumph as being a jazz guitar, but that's not all you did. You really ventured into a lot of different styles. So for people that especially here in America that maybe didn't follow all that closely some of the stuff you did after triumph tell everybody what you did musically, and how many records there are in the different journeys those records took you on. Okay well, you know settle in folks make yourself a cup of coffee. This is a long story. There there was thirteen that round hill made a deal for and they ran the gamut and when I first got of triumph. So a little bit of sort of ancient history here left eighty eight. I actually made three albums for an indie either had a distribution through universal and in Canada. And those sort of started an evolution or You know I don't know a a mutation change from being sort of Iraqi. Guy To kinda be in a singer Songwriter Guy and that took me from eighty nine through to about ninety five six. And then I sort of had enough. I. I was I mean the industry had changed You know the whole thing of being sort of in an arena rock band. It's kind of converted to an MTV banned through the eighties that was dying off and there was the rise of Nirvana and soundgarden and so radio had gone in a different direction and I try and thing just seemed like it was over for me you know so I left made those three records in there and I got to the point where I went. Okay. This doesn't really seem to be working for me either and it's not really why I left triumph. In the first place I just want to indulge myself creatively artistically and I don't care if I make money or not This is not a question of chasing career. This is a question of sort of. Chasing what art in music and the music is is pulling me towards calling me. You know. So I, one was a classical guitar instrumental record next one in very short succession was a blues rock and kind of a thing because really that was like where I cut my teeth when I was first learning electric guitar was the whole Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Jeff Beck thing these guys out of the yardbirds then back into the Chicago Blues and down the Delta all of the you know the the same path that those guys went soon as you discover them, you go back down the path that they did too. So you know And then the next record was sort of top jazz because that was the next thing that happened in my life I went to college for one semester in Jazz Music Program but at the time, I was heavily deeply into everything from west, Montgomery to Charlie bird to Joe Pass and so Yeah you know swinging and that comes on playing blues and so those were the first three records I made real quick

"burlington" Discussed on Snacks Daily
"P. C. Four our First Story Jack. Easy the leopard-print over there Burlington coat factory is taking a dramatic step with its e commerce business. It's ending nick. I saw this story I saw the company was called Burlington. I got excited. Because BURLINGTON's the biggest city in Vermont. But it's not BURLINGTON VERMONT. And apparently it's not even Burlington Massachusetts. It's also not Burlington Iowa. Which is the third most famous Burlington or is it? Burlington KANSAS. Nor is it bowling? Ten on -Tario. This company is based in Burlington New Jersey which apparently exists and its ticker symbol. Is Borough all snappers? We know what you're thinking when you think Burlington coat factory but don't do not call it a discount store. Burlington doesn't call it a discount store. They prefer to call their products off price. Great name off price. It's also the third-biggest off price retailer in the world after TJ MAXX and Ross Stores. And last week we told you that. Tj Max is thriving in this era of income inequality in the United States. Yakin I heard. Burlington coat factory's reporting earnings looks like they're coming after the maximum ISA's but Nick Dude not call Burlington coat factory. A coat store now. Now now it's knackers that's like saying David Blaine does a couple of card tricks. Roehampton sound coats. Sure but they're also selling luggage jewelry. Dog Beds I swear. They probably got lip balm by the cashier. That's almost a guarantee. And by the way smackers do not think the stock is cheap or off price. The company sells off price products. The stock is on price. It's up seven hundred percent since two thousand fifteen so like we said snacker Jack and bundled up jump into the earnings here snack. Now we noticed that Burlington's earnings report last week was classic good news and then a little bit of surprise news at the very end. Let's get to the meat and potatoes of this earnings report. Profit surged twelve percent okay. Avenues jumped eleven percent. It's pretty shabby also expecting another nine percent. Sales jump next quarter. Oh by the way Burlington decided last week. It is quitting ECOMMERCE. Can we throw in one of those records? Scratch things I can. We say goodbye to the shopping cart. What's going on Burlington? So they're not going to sell stuff online but we assume they're still going to have a website. I don't know what's going to be on there. But they're not killing their website are that seems like a homepage. Just shows a map of where they're seven hundred stores are. No one has any idea. Here's the thing for Burlington. Online sales are just a smidge of their business can either just zero point zero five percent of their total sales so BURLINGTON's like why are we even maintaining this online ecommerce situation? Let's just double down on physical stores. That's why they added forty-six stores last year. They're adding fifty four more this year and Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Burlington coat factory. Selling Online ECOMMERCE is not a one size. Fits all solution for retail snacks when we all hear e commerce. We tend to assume IT SAVES MONEY FOR YOU. Us and the company Casper cuts out the middleman. And that's how they're able to sell us. Lower Cost Patrice's right. Amazon saves money not having stores so we can sell you toothbrushes online for a dollar twenty seven brush. But here's the thing. There are real costs if you WANNA run an e commerce business online and that cost can be really expensive especially for smaller cheaper stores. Jack I think you met off price stores and those prices those expenses can be things like keeping things in inventory maintaining that inventory leasing the real estate to hold all that inventory. And then you've got to market your products online hospice individual orders online. Ford nate shipping for everything to show up customers front doors and you need to accept return. Somehow Oh and the whole time you gotTa Keep Tech People on staff because inevitably someone's mom's GonNa Email and say the shopping cart isn't working. I love this that we found the average product sold at Burlington coat. Stores is twelve bucks snacker twelve dollars for the average product. Ecommerce math just doesn't add up when you're things are twelve bucks each four. Our second story spin drift just raised twenty nine point eight million dollars now. It is time to spin. Drift defy beyond sparkling water. This is a company. That's headquartered just outside of Boston and Charleston Massachusetts. That's what the company says on their website. They said we're based just outside of Boston. This is not the same charlestown that like had. Ben Affleck roaming around remotely killing people want Machi mock style? Charlestown is completely gentrified. There are more hypoallergenic schnauzers. Then there are children in this town. You're not gonNA find like Matt Damon the CFO of any startups in Charlestown. No this sparkling. Water company was founded in two thousand ten and it was called Spin Drift Seltzer at the time. And now as seventy million dollars venture capital back now. The name itself the logos spin drift is actually a very poetic phrase. It means the spray from the cresting waves on the ocean but while they were founded right outside of Boston once they expanded beyond New England. They realized people. Don't call it Seltzer they call. It sparkling water jagged. I actually had no idea about this. Apparently had west of Ohio south of New York City. You're talking sparkling water. No longer. Seltzer territory right. So that's why in two thousand sixteen. They rebrand to just spin drift to basically dropped the now. If you hadn't noticed this company before you'll maybe starting on social media where it's pushed by spin fluency trying to get the name out there. I love those our friend. Sarah has been an influence or of spin. Drift Aka. Spin flinching for years aggressive spin swollen seeing the other place. You'RE GONNA notice. Spin drift is if he ever raising money for a venture capital firm. You're at a startup in San Francisco. They probably have it in the fridge. Among a lot of other perks. Now we've talked on snacks before that healthier beverages are very popular these days. You shouldn't be surprised that they grew sales by one hundred and forty seven percent last year to nearly thirty million but as a little bit of context here we dove in and notice that. Lacroix sales are nearly twenty times. That'S KNACK SPIN DRIFTS. Differentiator though is that the US real fruit and they actually squeeze the fruit to get the essence in the dress other again. Like the cucumbers from Michigan. They got all funds. O Mangoes coming in from India. And they're squeezing like ten percent of the actual juice nick grapefruits lemons oranges and strawberries coming from California Arizona and Florida. Jack and I looked at those little further on their website. They've got a map to show where everything's coming from. This is the kind of thing you'd WanNa turn to your wallpaper. They deserve cartography award now. Unlike lots of sparkling water companies spend beverages actually have like twenty thirty forty calories in them. Because there's real fruit in the drink. Ironically drinks like Lacroix have zero calories on the other hand they don't have any actual real fruit and it tastes like you're wondering where's this taste actually coming from snacker? Here's the problem though. The company like spend technically. It's a private company. So it's Kinda hard for Jack and jump in snack style and get information. That's why we looked at their closest publicly traded rival a company called National Beverage Corp which is the owner of Lacroix. Funny thing just last week. Before the weekend Lacroix's parent company National Beverage Corp decided to whip up their quarterly earnings report now context from like two thousand eleven to two thousand eighteen national Beverage Corp sales were blowing up because they were like the only sparkling water company in the game. You couldn't go to a beach without tripping over Lacroix as someone through you Lacroix. But in the past year Lacroix's sales only rose by one percent. That's practically no growth by the way part of that's because they're facing a lawsuit about where they get their ingredients from in the flavor but the other part that Lacroix highlighted it is a much different sparkling water market than just a couple of years before. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at spin drift and the rest of sparkling water spend. You can't survive forever as just sparkling water company. It needs to become the ocean spray for our generation snacks to build off of well. A courageous said sparkling water as an industry is getting a really crowded especially by big beverage. Coca Cola. Biggest brand in the world just acquired a sparkling water company Tokyo Chico and it's also launching Dasani sparkling meanwhile Pepsi launched its own bubbly did a super bowl commercial and Nestle has launched Poland. Spring sparkling water. Okay so in Sparkling Water. Spin drift has serious competition to keep growing. We think it should expand its real fruit. Business model to other products. They got to start doing extensions. Spend your supplements or spend your fruits. Nasa SPIN DRIFT LIQUOR SPIN DRIFT JELLY SPIN..

We're looking at the net flicks for phones and where it stands one month before it goes live but saqer's before we get to all that happy day after International Women's Day this is Post International Women's Day technically was yesterday when we were recording the podcast today. Nick and I recorded the podcast on Sunday during International Women's Day. So we're going to give it some respect today on this podcast Monday. It's technically celebrating the women's right to vote. Which didn't happen until nineteen seventeen in Russia right. It actually happened in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine in Germany and then it didn't happen in the United States until nineteen twenty two years later. We are huge fans of the nineteenth amendment. Which is when women got the right to vote in the United States but we notice some injustice still today taking place with International Women's Day. That's because the day this year happened to fall on daylight savings which means technically we lost an hour of International Women's Day. What the Heck International Women's Day was only twenty three hours. That's why we're giving it a little bit of time at today's podcast just to make up a little bit for that. Snacker celebrate with fifteen minutes during this pot. Then forty five minutes later today. Maybe get a nineteenth amendment tattooed on your bicep over there.

"The organizing and the level of excitement that the progressives were able to Bring to the SORTA organizing efforts before. Today's this week's town meeting vote when two more progressives Flip seats in the City Council. And you guys now have a seven five majority And I also they'll voter turnout but I'm wondering what is unique about Burlington. Sort of I mean I know you guys have a number of folks in the State House. I think seven in the House and a few Democrats progressives in the Senate but it seems like obviously Burlington has long been the sort of Heart of the Progressive Movement in Vermont. But how have you guys gone about sort of In these past four years since you've been the executive director building excitement again around the party. Yeah Burlington is certainly the heart. We do have people all over the state and we're very excited that David sacrament Sacramento. Who's a longtime progressive? Is now running for governor. I think that's you know that's shows it's a huge thing for our party and it shows how how far we've come even the past couple of years But Yeah I think About ten years ago When we lost the mayor's seat there was a real sense that maybe the Progressive Party wasn't going to be around for another ten years and Maybe you know we were down to just two seats and I just you know it. It was a commitment. There were a couple of individuals who really stood Stayed around through that those dark times and really kind of carry the torch forward and continued to like to engage with party members and build and over the last four five six years we really rebuilt at least in. Burlington the party from the ground up and we brought in dozens of like new young people. People who are recent grads or college students people who just moved here from other parts of the country are state And you know it's it's an exciting place because people are familiar with you know this. We'RE PRETTY NONTRADITIONAL PARTY RATES. So most people are in other parts of the state or the country They don't have any sense of like you can actually elect A non-democratic or non Republican Party candidate in Burlington. I think there is a strong sense and people are proud that you can actually do that here. and when we were able to show people that you know we actually had an alternative voice That was reasonable and also could win They were just so excited to get on board with us and go out and help us win and run with us as well. Yeah I mean I it strikes me that you know in the past couple of years in particular that you know on the national political stage you have a former Burlington mayor and Bernie Sanders Who Sort of Been a champion of the Progressive Movement for decades And then huge amount of sort of negative political feelings on the national level towards the current President Donald Trump. Obviously he's less popular in Vermont than anywhere else in the country. And I guess I'm wondering. How much do you draw the sort of success of getting young folks out And engage in Burlington on a pretty local level in these local races. You know how Progressive Controlling City Council. How much do you draw connection between that? I'm in the various forces at play in national politics. Yeah I think that's your genetic you know before I answer that. I do think it's really amazing if you think about this. The second Burlington progressives just one took control city council. I think in year. We're going to win back. The mayor's seat and have a progressive mayor. The person who's started the Burlington progressive movement is Bernie Sanders when he won Burlington nineteen eighty-one he could be president of the United States A fourteen year progressive from BURLINGTON. David Zuckerman is now. Running for governor is a very good shot of winning. Could be the so. We could control if you think about it. The Progressive Party started in Burlington. People who came out of that movement could control every level of government from federal state local on down. And that's what he's let's just like I can't even believe thinking about that as exciting But tanzer a question Yeah I think played a huge huge part I think Bernie. Sanders is tapping into something that has needed to be tapped into for a long time. And that's just really anger and angst over the lack of care over economic inequality issues and issues of climate change and health care reform. And he's showing people that we are. New World is possible that we can actually have these conversations around more much more aggressive almost more radical Ideas and it's actually has a broad mass appeal and what you saw in Burlington is I you know going into the election. I had no idea what was going to happen. I knew we had worked really hard but I I was frankly. I was worried that people were going to go and take a Democratic Party ballot. And then we're going to take a local town meeting day ballot and they were going to be like. Oh well. I'm just going to vote for the Democrat because I you know I voted in the Democratic primary. I was like really nervous that that was going to be a thing. And I think what Bernie has done is shown people that know like there are alternatives to have the democratic establishment status quo. That can actually win. And people know he was an independent in the Senate and Congress for many many years and I think they were excited to vote for us and excited that. Bofors something different. Now you've talked Oh sorry I was I was Gonna I was GonNa say I think people are also angry at the democratic establishment right now both in Burlington and nationally for the way they kind of tried to push down These new ideas and this movement You've mentioned a couple of times That sort of next for the progresses. The mayor's office You know a lot of these gains have happened under the administration of Memora- Weinberger who's Sort of firmly in the moderate camp as far as The Democrats Go he responded to the latest victories for the Progressives Party on Tuesday night saying that He did sort of agree that this was a referendum on his administration and in fact point into the fact that voters supported a number of the ballot initiatives that his administration had been involved in putting before voters That included Public Safety tax increase. That's going to fund the operation of a new ambulance and the new North End An increase in the city's Housing Trust Fund And a change. That will make local valid ballots available forty five days before the elections What what are your thoughts on that sort idea that the administration was involved in putting forward a number of initiatives that were broadly supported by the same people who voted into Progressive City councillors. Well so I I'd say either. Noncontroversial ballot initiatives. These were initiatives that were also supported by all the progressive counselors and all of our candidates. So I would say the idea that somehow this is like a win for the mayor and not for us is kind of ludicrous You know these are very. It's it's supporting the school budget. It's more money for the ambulance. It's a minor change to election law. I mean these are not big sweeping things if you WANNA look at One of the more controversial things. That mayor has pushed Go last year to the downtown improvement district which was a big priority of the mayor to privatize The church marketplace downtown and that was rejected by majority in Burlington So I think and then that was a major priority of the mayor and Democratic City Councillor. So yeah I think. The all the ballot initiatives did pass. But these were in You know big controversial issues. These were just pretty generic You know nuts and bolts kind of city government things that everyone's support Josh. I wanted to ask We've been talking about sort of what's going on with Mayor Marrone Weinberger And how sort of disaffection with his administration perhaps his driving some of the support for the press a party. A lot of the folks who have been Elected from the Progressive Party have been notably. Young I I don't think there's anyone older than thirty The past couple of years. These four new members of city council that have now given the party control And I believe some of them are barely over twenty and I guess I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on sort of the lack of experience Of these folks who are now largely in control of Burlington City Council and therefore the city. Yeah well and you know I just want one note. Is that two years ago. We did like. Brian. Pine who I believe is in his fifties Dwarf three so It's not like we're only letting people in their twenties and thirties We are running you know across the spectrum but I you know my response is that we should never underestimate young people. You look at someone like Alexandria Cossio. Cortez she got elected. I believe when she was twenty nine at the Congress to A district in Queens. And she's now league one of the leaders in the progressive movement. I don't think anyone would say that. She is doing a poor job or qualified. Some people might disagree with some people including some listeners of the show might have that view but yeah Certainly are certainly disagreement. Yeah exactly I think people are very excited about that. So I think if you can have a twenty nine year old Running for Congress and winning and doing well by by many many standards I. I don't think it's a stretch to say that a twenty two year old or a twenty nine year old just turned thirty year old can be a city councillor in a city of forty thousand people. I think that and you look at our candidates. Just because you're young doesn't mean you're inexperienced Even our our twenty year old Winter Jane Stromberg was on the Board of be Parag She represents largely a student ward. It's a war that was created A couple of years ago And they they literally drew drew a line around the University of Vermont and there. Yeah that it's it's probably ninety percent students that live there so I the whole idea. I think when they created that word was that students should have a representation. They represent A huge part of our city So it makes sense for them to have a voice and You know giving giving giving that whole idea as well. She's she's very qualified Annan's Rod Hightower who twenty. I just turned thirty on election day. Pretty Exciting Birthday prank that good birthday present. Yeah exactly Yeah so she. She has a ton of experience. I mean she graduated from Yale She. She has a graduate degree from Yale in the environment. I mean works for like a International Sustainable Development Organization Where they do sustainable development work all over the world so I think that expands. She's been on the Development Review Board In Burlington I think that experience is incredibly valuable for the city. So Yeah it's I I. I would not say that candidates we've been putting forward our experience. We've got a caller on the line. Fred from new very good morning morning. What kind of policies would you be in favor? All that when help reduce the cost of living or Joss. What kind of policies are you guys thinking about reduce cost of living? Well yeah so I guess in Burlington because that's what the show's about their number of issues that we've been we've been putting forward So we're GONNA have a conversation on bring control in different types of it and and our counselors have different ideas around around what that looks like. The cost of housing is really out of control and that city and big landlords have an incredible amount of power. They control everyday lives of their residents. So we're GONNA look at how we curb that power and how we You know give some power back to to regular working people. We're GONNA look at expanding public transit and in Burlington potentially even doing Um Fare. Free Transit so You don't have to actually pay to get on the bus on. That's that's been a big policy. It's something that's cities around. The world have done and it will directly impact in a positive way low income people and potentially allow more people to not not drive We're GONNA look at whether they should And there's an effort to attempt to require landlords to weatherize their homes That's that's a huge thing So you know just just a couple of things in Burlington every every day. Everything we do is geared towards how it's going to improve the lives of working class people That's that's our entire reason for existing and I would just say briefly on a state level There is you know there's a bunch of stuff we're working on like raising the minimum wage to a living one I was excited. That we just got The twelve fifty five but that that's nowhere near as far as we need to go in terms of the living wage There is also. We've we've talked for a number of years about getting rid of the property tax end exchanging it out for an income based Tax Progressive Tax. That would be really beneficial. I think two working people. Yeah Josh can I just go back real quick? We have two minutes left and I wanted to go back to your response to read their. Who Pose a great question. I thought About sort of how to reduce the cost of living and I think one of the big criticisms from the right of progressives and even from the center has been that a lot of the policies. They're being proposed. You know someone call them sort of pie in the sky too expensive. You talked about expanding public transit. You talked about weatherization. These are expensive things to do. How do you accomplish these things without hiking taxes?.

"Yeah anything's evolve and they and they should evolve and and and I I. Maybe I'm too forgiving. But I sort of feel like when when people weren't really thinking the way we think today you know thirty or four years years ago that yes they needed to change their thinking. They're now thinking better and so can we kind of move on. Go into the future But I I don't know maybe I'm maybe I'm wrong about and and there are some some offenses which are bad enough. If the you'd say well yeah that really. That really is a problem. It's just it's kind of A. It's a moving target. I guess is the is the situation there. Hey I wanted to bring you bring a call. We have Ted on the line from Shelburne. Good Morning Ted yes good morning Just one thing because I've been acquainted to some degree not really closely but with several oh cases of traumatic brain injury. It's it's way it makes a way different person who it doesn't know themselves and so just and maybe you can find an expert but and I'm sure cases are very different but if you can imagine a quite high high speed contact with pavement. I I hear you ted. I and and explained the chief Brandon. Bell puzzle had an edited a terrible bicycle accident in the adirondacks the summer before. These events unfolded the summer before he spent his our on a fake twitter account and that was last. July fake twitter account account lasted at our last July. July visitdell. I or something like that. And he had had his bicycle accident earlier and there were concerns about lingering effects of of a head injury that he had i. I think there's a little bit of skepticism. That would dance around well so it's just. It is a very odd thing that that the head injury shows up a year later in an hour of fake tweeting. And then it's even odder that that it turns out that his deputy chief also had a fake social media out. I don't think right contagious. You can be yourself seemingly or not. I mean some work their way back to almost the way they work some never do and so you know the time anyhow. I just think it's a point for an expert in and we sitting around the speculating the stove stove at the door. You're right can't make any judgments I hear and I'll tell you I do have some sympathy here because because I know that there are other other things life even aside from brain injuries. Let's say you have chronic pain. Terrible terrible back pain or something and and you're dealing with that every day you might be on some kind of medication or something are just living living with the pain itself which distracting and drives. You drive you crazy And then you know your temper gets away with from you pointing say something really really stupid judgments of himself. Even it may be easier for them to what we wouldn't rationalize a little lie but we know ourselves and we're trying to get back to ourselves oopsy. Today's here comes a steamroller. I I like Brennan. Brennan del Pozzo is a person. I've only talked to him a couple of times but he seems like a really nice gentleman and I wish I. I wish he had to have the wherewithal to say when the reporter called him and asked me three weeks later. Did you do this. And he and he should've said momentary failure but what you know whether he needs Just a watch person between or something I don't know like probably still has many very valuable qualities But you know we'll any. I just wanted to bring that sort of professional aspect. I don't have very much. I saw an interesting article. Actually it was from Fox News It came out. I first spotted early this morning. And Focuses on a comment by congressman. Eric swallow while WHO's a Democrat from California -fornia talking about President trump and the fact that he hasn't been turning over sending witnesses up to the hill house. Democrats wanted hasn't been turning over the documents. The House Democrats wanted wanted swallow says we can only conclude that you're guilty. When he's withholding all of this stuff and I got a lot of pushback on twitter about that that from people who were saying things like well we thought there was a fifth amendment where a criminal defendant doesn't have to produce evidence against him or herself what about that is? It doesn't does doesn't the president of a right not to himself. What do you what do we make of this sure? Well I I. I think it bears repeating that. The impeachment process is not a trial process And you know when you're in a trial both sides are there And presenting evidence evidence making objections controlling What evidence gets in? There's rules of evidence there are constitutional limitations as to what goes in especially in in criminal cases and the judge is there to make decisions and to ultimately instruct jury to either disregard Certain information or make legal rulings things if they don't follow his instructions or her instructions So here we have a political process so the Fifth Amendment doesn't really apply but I think I think the point that a lot of these people are making which is under girding the Fifth Amendment. which is that? We have a right to stay silent. and silence should not be equated to to A confession or an admission of guilt And you know I think that depends in part and what Eric Swallow pointed to as that there are certain areas in civil law and administrative law. Where silence is interpreted as an admission of guilt and you know one of the examples that comes to mind is in? Dui You know if you fail to You know you refuse to take breathalyzer or blood tests. You know that. allows some Finding of probable cause or or in some cases with the civil forfeiture of license That you know. It's it's a presumption of guilt tug of war really between the the congressional oversight. We're just about out of time. The th the ability of Congress to oversee the executive branch and the executives the president's ability lead you know not to provide self incriminating evidence. I hate to do this but we gotta kind of leave it there because we are just about out of time here on the segment of the show. Dan We gotta have. We're going to take longer longer segment next time. This is going to be a pattern with us down good. Thanks a lot for joining me today. We're GONNA go to the top of the hour. CBS News and actually. That's it I think today.

"From Radio Vermont. It's the Dave Graham show on. WD It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most most of you. Now here's your host Dave Graham Morning Vermont. It is Wednesday the eighteenth of December two thousand and nineteen. Just a couple of weeks. Left have to go in two thousand and one thousand nine hundred and and just a week to go before the Christmas holidays. So if you're shopping doesn't it better get busy. It's winding winding down here coming up fast. Whatever you WANNA call it and we have a good show lined up for your at least half show about ten o'clock or so we're going to go to some live? CBS News coverage out of Washington on deliberations in the House of Representatives where they are expected to debate and vote today on the impeachment of president. Donald J trump and Widely expected that. The House House Dem. The House Democratic majority will prevail and and actually impeach the president That will set up a procedure in which the trial will be held in the Senate and the Senate will determine if the president should be actually convicted and removed from office It's widely predicted that the Senate will not do that. Of course the Senate is under Republican Control Republican majority and it takes a two thirds majority sixty seven votes in the US Senate to actually to remove President from office office. So that's a high bar and all the predictions are that the Senate will not reach that bar so there we go we are are about to take the next big step here other stuff going on as well though we have a very very interesting twitter scandal going on up in Burlington. We're GONNA talk a little bit about that in our second half hour of the program today and But I I WANNA visit with Secretary of State Jim Condos the chief elections officer in the state of Vermont. He Yesterday issued a statement saying that the nominee mini or the Paper filing period. I guess it will get the official name of it from the secretary. Just a moment had closed for Giddy yourself on the ballot for the March Third Third Vermont Presidential Primary Remember. We have our presidential primary on the same day as town meeting dates first Tuesday in March and the list is now finalising up on the secretary of State's website website. And let's talk to the secretary about what's going on with all this secretary condos thanks for joining me this morning. You're welcome day. I'm right here. You are right there on the telephone from again from my office is located and of course you're resonant these days and So I appreciate you getting on the phone with me. This is mighty guy to you do so. It looks like we have Three Republican candidates and You know I I had led. I realize this majorly neglectful on my tort let Rocky de la Fuente slipped my mind. Somehow he's been there In the last couple of presidential presidential cycles I do. I saw that name. I said Yeah. Remember that guy from last time didn't make much of a ripple then we're not really expecting much with him this time are ah well. That's up to the voters. Decide not me and of course the other to there's a guy by the name of Donald J trump I think folks have heard of him and And Bill Oh well the former governor of Massachusetts is also on the on the Republican ballot. Bill Weld was actually a guest here on the day. Graham show several weeks ago and really enjoyed meeting with him in hearing hearing what he wanted to bring to this campaign of course he is not a big fan of the incumbent president at even though they're both Republicans Big Big daylight between the two of them and when you say it sounds like it from what I've seen on the news. Okay that's a that is a safe comet from our Secretary of State there folks and so tell me about this basically if anybody has dreams running for president in twenty twenty. It's too late now to get on the on Vermont Ballot Vermont Primary Ballot Right. Yes yes the. The deadline was five. PM on Monday and at that point in time they had to submit signatures of One thousand a minimum of one thousand registered voters here in Vermont plus a check for two thousand dollars And as as you can see we've got a few kid. It's for the Democratic Party. We had as you said the three on the on the Republican side. It looks like twelve on the democratic side The the ranks have swelled up toward twenty senior. Recall from earlier on but We we the the list is actually going to include. I'll read democracy so folks are aware of who actually is in and maybe if they have a name there a favorite that is not on here. They'll be aware of that as well. They won't have an opportunity to vote for the person on Marks the third. But let's see we'll start with I guess these are listed alphabetically starting with V. So you're with Joseph R Biden Michael Bloomberg Pete Brundige Tulsi Gabbard Amy Klobuchar. Devout Patrick Bernie Sanders. Mark Stewart. Tom Steyer Elizabeth is Warren Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang Only one of those. I'd never heard before and I'm trying to figure out why I've never heard of Mark Stewart. But uh he he ran. I think in two thousand sixteen as well he was from he's from Connecticut and He had been a candidate eh before. You also didn't mention because it's not listed yet but Julian Castro He has been given supplemental time per statute He fell about nine registered. Voters the voters on the petition. We have two one. We have to confirm that there. Registered voters to we have to confirm that we can read either the printed or the written name and He fell short by about nine nine people so he according to statute he has ten. He'd been granted ten additional days to get the remaining nine signatures his the office when we notified them yesterday said that they would have it to us in the next day or two okay now so Ten initial days is that is that business his days or is that Calendar days. I don't have the statute in front of me but I would think it would be ten calendar days okay so we probably December twenty twenty six since the deadline was the sixteenth at five pm so that would be. Maybe it'll be out knocking on doors on Christmas Day down bodily people home yeah they. That's true yep no place like home for the holidays even if cameras are knocking on your door so secondary reconnaissance to talk to me a little bit about. I'm always confused about how primaries actually sort of you know what they're what they're underpinnings are. Because I hear on on one hand they are sort of a function of the political parties. They are organized by political parties to a large extent. But here is the secretary of State's office very public Tax Payer funded entity put off this list and closing it off in organizing the declaring the date and doing all this official stuff towing sort this out for us. So it's it's a little bit of all of that and so the the state actually oversees and manages the primary elections. And you're right when you said that the it's a political party function essentially a a Primary is a nominating process for the political parties. So so the Republican the in the presidential. You have the Republican Party and the Democratic Party and the statewide primary for the general election. You have The Progressives the Republicans and the Democrats. That's the August primary. Excuse me so What happens is is that okay for so on on election day or if you're voting early by or by absentee you'll be you'll be asked which primary ballot for the presidential primary? You'll be asked which ballot you want the Republican ballot or the democratic ballot and That actually is recorded as to whether you took the Republican or the Democratic One. That's the only time that we record any semblance of party affiliation. And it's not necessarily a party affiliation because there will be Democrats will vote in the Republican primary and they'll be Republicans vote in the Democratic Democratic primary. You just have to designate. which which primary ballot you want in the general election? which is for governor Senator US House in and legislature which occurs in in August and that primary you were given one ballot free free each of the three major parties and you can only fill out one of those and then you discard the other two. Nobody knows which ballot you filled Out and nobody knows what value feel that. So there's no way anybody can check on that and find out whether you went into your local polling place and chose the Republican or the democratic ballot. Is that right. That's for the general election statewide primary August. The presidential is public public knowledge. That is recorded and you. Will you pick either a Republican ballot or a democratic ballot. You're not giving both okay and anybody you can come in and and find out which one you picked right. That is true. Yeah and always made me kind of nervous as a reporter because obviously there are people out there who want to say you know. See I told hold you dave. Grandma's a conservative or see. I told you day grandmas a liberal and so I we we don't we wouldn't. We wouldn't do that for one person. So someone that someone would get the The the whole voter file for that But but Dave I think it's also important to understand. Vermont is not a party registration state so so you don't register as a Democrat or Republican and just because you pull the Republican ballot for president does not mean you are a Republican what it means means is you chose that particular ballot for that particular primary now. I think what happens is overtime. If all of a sudden they looked and they said said. Oh Dave Graham borders the requests the Republican ballot each time. There's a presidential primary then. There's an indication that you're going to lean to the all right So that's kind of how it works. It was this was a negotiated settlement way before my time it was back in around. Nineteen Eighty When this was done between the legislature the governor the and the parties and that included the national parties? And how this this Presidential residencial primary would would operate because we are not a party registration state. Yeah Yeah of course. There's always they're always. They're always a few you people around the state who want to want to be checking up on reporter's like this I don't have any anybody with a specifically taken that that staff but there's many many people are used to find occasionally folks who wanted to inquire as to my alleged political leanings when I was a reporter and so on and Always taught me that. This'll be one one indicator and you're right. It wouldn't in one instance of an election. It could be. Maybe maybe the individual person is voting putting in a given parties primarily because here she wants to cause mischief and wants to vote for the real dark horse candidate. Who has you know? And there's no chance that the that the the say the incumbent office holder will be defeated. But you want US show that the incoming offs colder is maybe weaker than was perceived. Or something I don't know you know so all sorts of motivation on the same hand when you have for instance you have It looks like we're going to have thirteen candidates for for the Democratic presidential primary If if you use your vote to cast a protest vote in the in the Republican primary you're also taking away the ability to vote for someone in the Democratic primary so there's a lot of things that have to be considered when that happens and I. I don't know that that is really something that happens in a very serious way. I I just don't think it does. I tend to agree with you. I mean we'd be it. It'd be really a kind of a silly exercise in this upcoming presidential primary just one example. And maybe you know really good example the problem. But you're right I mean essentially anybody's leaning Democrat These days would I'm sure have a preference between let's say Pge Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or whatever correct and and and they might And and then the question is you know I really going over there to the Republican side..
