Which gives it and then they and then they sour it somehow so it's like sour millet porridge and then i like to put coconut milk and spice in that sounds like porridge is usually this just bland. That's what it's supposed to be. Sounds like you're going to opposite direction. Gosh no. I discovered porridge of been discovering parche. All my life. I think it's a process of continual rediscovery honestly like my grandmother's purchase. The best part in the whole world was a best best best best best partridge and then i lived in mombasa for awhile in the night i tasted the part in mombasa and that was the best and i started feeling guilty about liking another party. More than my grandmother's really. Did you have a chance. you're still with us. I'm sorry you can even taste it. You couldn't even get her on board. You can do and also a little bit like mombasa. You're still living out in mombasa or you're you're here full-time based was what was that dalliance with the coast. I've always wanted to live at the coast. Feel like the coast is just a super magical wonderful. Can't i can't even explain mombasa's just it's beautiful. It's one of my. It's like going to the coast dismal. The ken coast is my happy place. All is has been in the indian ocean and the beaches and the coast on on the south coast of the northern. The most beautiful beaches anywhere. I've ever seen Right let's go. Yeah we're gonna so we have mambas where it's at. This deanne is where. It's at. So i just i try and spend as much time as possible so for a while. I thought i could live there.

The Cat and Mouse Game at the Mexico-U.S. Border

"Paso del Norte Bridge Pass of the North here people crossed from Horace to Al Paso or Paso to warez every day they crossed by car and foot to go to work to school to shop to visit family chaos and clutter hustle and bustle and adjacent train trestle called Black Bridge crosses nearby the scene of the tragic shooting. So many years ago. US border, patrol agent shot, and killed a fifteen year old Mexican boy after that. So what happened at the Rio Grande? Well, the facts are disputed. So we'll tell both sides of the story was talking about the circumstances that brought about the shooting the boy's parents say Sergio was playing a game with friends run across the border to the US side touch defense run back without getting. Caught kind of like a game of chicken. Yeah. I mean what kid hasn't played some version of that Game Kisha branch works for Barra Borderland Connections a nonprofit helping asylum seekers. She spends her days at shelters in El, Paso and shelters in Horace. She works closely with migrants and Border Patrol agents all that to say she's familiar with the area and the dichotomy of working with both sides. There are some kids that that play at the border, the border in New Mexico in an opera. There's a community right beside the border wall. There's a a lot of land and there's a trash pile, and so sometimes, the like moms will go out in like pick things out of the trash Powell for their homes like for household items. There are people that go into that space like where we go to visit the wall there some kids that come up to the wall and they talk to us and we'll just have conversations with them. So. Yeah. Are Kids that play in that area, but they play in the area because it's their backyard. But that's in an opera. What about downtown in the Rio Grande Canal by the bridge where the shooting happened according to my cabdriver it's not generally an area where kids play. Do kids play around the fence around the border. No. They don't let them get near. So that leads us to the other side of the story. Border Patrol says, Sergio was a coyote helping undocumented people illegally cross into the United States. coyotes often use coordinated distraction techniques. Draw the agents attention away from his surroundings victim. An Harrah's was the chief Border Patrol agent out of Paso when the shooting occurred he's now retired we used to call those still do they would call it a sacrificial room. Send someone a across or group appeal across to get the agent to react get the agent to start chasing a group and and what they do is soon as the agent leaves that that high. Position they say whatever they want to send. WHAT THE REAL INTENT It's almost like a diversion. So that happens all the time dangerous game, the game of cat-and-mouse. The boys ran back and forth across the border agent Mesa detained. One of Sergio's friends Sergio ran back to the Mexican side. He hid behind a pillar under the train trestle. That's when agent Mesa shot him in the face. Mesa says Sergio and his friends were throwing rocks, both men, Harrah's and George Gomez. The agent I talked with at the beginning of this episode, Say agents are trained for physical assaults cures, Gomez. Goh, there's different scenario that we run the training. Obviously, I think covered drive away from the air run seek cover and backup call for backup deescalate. Behavior. Here's the thing I don't want to downplay rock-throwing. David. With Iraq agent Mesa may very well have been endangered. Peres. Getting right and he's got a he's hunched over the guy that he was arresting. And you got your back towards man. You're you're you're really at risk even under the high pressure of split-second decision making the use of lethal force here has been criticized bystanders video captured the fatal shooting. In the video Sergio unarmed again, Kisha Branch who works at the border. The story that came out in the news is different from a story that we hear from the agents themselves. So I don't. I don't I have I have no answers Sergio's parents of course, do want answers and a legal remedy. Meaning an award of damages, the family believes the US. Constitution. Guarantees Sergio certain rights now the constitution of the United States setup the framework for the American government and the various rights people have with respect to the government right and the constitution applies to more than US citizens the preamble the very beginning of constitution says we the people of the United States so it doesn't specify Melvin Odi is a constitutional law professor at Faulkner University. which generally talking about in the way, the courts interpret these things into generally talking about the people who comprise the United States. We the people of the United States People Citizens Resident Aliens International Travelers in this country on holiday or for business when you're in the United States, those protections apply to you. But when you go back to wherever your home country is, those objections do not apply United States meaning of course, that's going to be. The Continental United States, but also include The US territories the special maritime jurisdiction of the United States which would be like on the seas. As far as the borders. The constitution applies within our borders and again sort of the territories that we control. Chris Galindo is one of the lawyers who represented the Hernandez family. Here's a clip from a video called Justice for Sergio Audio and Spanish here from a univision news investigation. Dominicano. Wasim Anthem Nisa. He says, can we sue the American government to be sure Hernandez was in Mexico and is Mexican the American government said we can't sue them because this is Mexico. Not The United States we're saying not bullet originated in the United States and they have to pay for the injustice. They did Moses Shindo is guy. I WITH MY NEIGHBORS GET TICKET WINDOW GOES ON WE are saying there are certain laws and certain ways. The Border Patrol agents need to treat human beings Mexican or American according to United States Laws Federal K. K. K. K.. You the Sergio's mom pleads God for help for justice this is going to haunt me until I leave this world. This acronym you can. Okay. Vido. Sergio's parents sued agent Mesa in Federal Court for excessive use of force. They claim Mesa violated Sergio's rights under the fourth and fifth amendments. Now here's a reminder of what those are faulkner professor Melvin Odi. Okay so The Fourth Amendment Fifth Amendment each sort of presents a bundle of rights but the fourth amendment in particular. Presents a list of restrictions on government agents were investigating crimes. Okay. So the prominent one is protection against. Searches and seizures. The court has interpreted seizure to include killing the taking of human. Life. Would have been saying. This was an unreasonable search and seizure the fifth amendment includes several closets. Relevant one, but there's a catch all. Near the end of the Fifth Amendment that says a person can't read deprived of life liberty or property without due process of law. So. In this case, the young man's life was taken. And the Fifth Amendment says, you can't do that without due process of without fundamentally fair legal proceedings. The first time this case worked its way through the court system the fifth US Circuit Court. Of Appeals dismissed the case it held Sergio's parents were not entitled to fourth and Fifth Amendment protections under various legal doctrines, but the Supreme Court said the fifth circuit and properly applied those legal doctrines. So it vacated the decision rendered null and void that was Hernandez one in. Two thousand, seventeen, the Supreme Court then remanded the case with specific instructions. It's at another question needed to be addressed. I is a givens remedy available. The Fifth Circuit said, no in this Supreme Court, appeal followed Hernandez

Harry Dodge: My Meteorite: Or, Without the Random There Can Be No New Thing

"Think that you have in this book. Mein meteorite shown how people tend to get things wrong until they're allowed to collide and form new things. Was this book very difficult to right? Thank you for that. I had an idea for the book and I began by writing out these These three anecdotes that kind of are that are assured. The longer anecdotes one was the anecdote about the Performance in Chicago that had gone so poorly and how started performing again and That was a big coincidence and there was another huge series of coincidences that I write about With regards my birth mother when I found her at age thirty six and we had a bunch of very odd things in common and another set of coincidences. I wrote about at the beginning of reading. The book was The Guardian Angel Incidences as I called where I met the same cabdriver again and again a couple years apart in the ninety s when I lived in San Francisco I started there and then I started to take notes on sort of my everyday activities for about a year and then when my father died because of course the book begins with Father. Dying in the book ends with my Father Dying. I began writing the book and Ernest when he died. And I got confused Here I had all these notes that that I was going to fill out into a book that had a sort of forward progression but now I was writing in the present in two thousand seventeen but also filling out the notes from two thousand sixteen and then I realized the book could be kind of I. Think of it as kind of horseshoe-shaped where two thousand seventeen is moving forward and progressing as his two thousand sixteen and they sort of meat in some way at the end yes undergoes through your home life. You remember the. I think fourteen page letter you right when you jump out the second floor window to go to a concert that you felt without being there your life would be inferior altered emptied and you taped the letter to the collar of the dog so that your parents would be sure to receive it when they walk the dog. The book form of important messages between you and the people in your life and between you and your readers. You're very good writer and you're a very good teacher and this book my meteorite or without the random there can be no new thing. It's published by Penguin Press. It's a penguin original. And I never thought I'd the things that you teach me about artificial intelligence about robots. About how what we learn from the web comes to us. How many things have to be assembled before the triples occur that allow communication? You really took me by complete surprise and led me by the nose to understanding all kinds of things that I thought. I was incapable of understanding woman. This book my meteorite one of the surprises review when your birth mother is that you share the love of a particular novel by Theodore Sturgeon. It's a book a really Short Little Novella. I think even called the dreaming jewels which I believe was first published. It was either the late sixties early seventies and I as I say in the book I founded when I was ten years old and the bookstore was I think Michelle in the in the kids section and I used to read a lot of science fiction than and I read it and I. It's just a sort of weirdly. Abject book where this kid is caught caught eating ants under the bleachers. And he is. He's an odd creature in feels like he's from another planet in he's kind of being raised by these really icky brutal parents and he's really alienated from his community and ends up running away from home and joining the circus and he ends up being a shape shifter and he ends up being controlled by these kind of Maroon that have actually fallen from space and then the jewels tend to create things and they had evidently created him and The book was blew my mind. You know as a Kid. I used to keep this long list of books. I had hundreds and hundreds of books in this long list. I used to and dumb it under this one. This particular book better read. When I was ten I had put five stars in the column. And so is my favorite book for years. And then you know When I was twenty five or thirty years later when I met my birth mother we sat talking and we evidently had this book in common.

Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era

"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

"Your non elimination legs for when there's less team. So I kind of feel like use them here upfront and maybe have another one in the next two weeks. Yeah. I agree with that. I think that I see your point especially that from that perspective. I kind of wish there was a non elimination the first leg, but considering that what I mean, like art JJ and a full body cast the rest of the raise maybe that worked. But I do see, especially with the stat cast like this keep them together as much as possible, though. Of course, tinfoil hat, people out there on the internet, being low Rachel, and Elissa saved again, because the, the race wants them in there a repeat with just set a couple of weeks ago when we talked about the nomination for the first time these are predetermined by production. They just happened to get very lucky that on a bad day. They happened to come zip-line into a leg where there was a non elimination at the end and they live to race another day. Okay. Anything else you wanna say about the first leg of this two hour episode. Well, I've got some amazing race one. Oh, one to talk about. I think it fits right? Quite nicely in the middle here because we kinda saw two instances of this happening. We got a few questions. So let's keep up the sound bite. Run. Yo. Thank you, George. And so I want to talk first mazing race wanna one segment. I wanna talk about caps because this is something that a lot of people ask about. And I think if you've been watching from the beginning, you kind of take this as a given. But if you're just tuning in this season, and this is your first rodeo, you probably don't quite understand what's going on here, so teams when they are on the ground in the cities. It used to be that teams would have to arrange all of their own transportation like flights and everything. And now that's a little bit. That's gone a little bit out the window, except that when they are on the ground in a city teams are responsible for getting themselves around and so they are responsible for retaining their own caps. And this is probably the number one reason that teams get eliminated is they end up just dumb luck. They choose the wrong cabdriver, and I would say, like ninety percent of unfair eliminations like ones where you think those guys really got screwed. It is at the hands of a bad cabdriver and a really good cabdriver can help you quite a bit somebody that really knows the area is fast and knows good shortcuts, they can save you a lot of time. And a lot of them are really game to be on the show and to be into helping you out. But then ever so often you get somebody who maybe it's their first day on the job, you don't really know and they take the wrong road. They get you stuck in traffic. A lot of times, you see a cabdriver stop for gas and you're like, don't you understand? We're gonna race here. And if seed a lot of teams go out solely due to the fact that they're cabdriver wasn't totally on the ball. Is there anything any telltale signs to be able to spot, a good cabdriver from a bad? Cabdriver. Jess. That's a really good question. Rob, I would say that a really good. Cabdriver is gonna be someone I would say go for the person. That's driving the Janke cab because Cavs been on the road for a long time. Probably also been on the road for a long time. That's like a Big Hat. No cattle exactly exactly..

NYC to Be First US City to Use Congestion Pricing: How does it work?

"On the show congestion pricing. This is basically the idea of taking one part of a city, you know, maybe the most crowded part of the city and charging people to go there today on the show. Does it work who's doing it and is coming to a city near you? Also, how long is it gonna take me to get across town? Okay. So we should try to hail a cab. Oh looks like there's some Cavs. Oh my gosh, right away. Hi. We're just going all the way across town to the west side. No. He just looked at us. Like, we were insane. We're like we're trying to get cross down. Here was like, oh, no. This message comes from NPR sponsor snowflake. The only data warehouse built for the cloud unlock.

Today's indicator is to that is how many miles it is from one side of forty second street to the other so across Manhattan, the horizontally, so this is deep midtown. The beating heart of overcrowded New York, forty second street goes by Grand Central station time square port authority bus terminal. It is one of the most heavily traffic streets in the. Yeah. This two miles roughly twelve blocks is a treacherous stretch. So treacherous as Dr I discovered some calves will not even drive it. It's a nonstarter for some cabs. But we finally did find a heroic cabdriver who would take us Muhammed Sharif. He's been driving taxi in Manhattan for about six months. Now, what is it like driving a New York? It's. Restarting time, we're gonna see how long it takes us to get cross town, and it is four thirty five pm definitely rush hour. So this congestion pricing plan was passed by the New York legislature. But it won't be put in place for a couple of years. We asked Muhammad if he'd heard about it. What do you think about that? I'm not sure you would say would lectured us at fake or that like to make more money. How much? Actually, it's both. According to Bruce Schaller, he's a public transportation consultant here in New York. Do you think it's a good idea for New York? Yes. Reduced congestion the city because charge people some people will decide to take the bus to come in and said driving, and the Secondly, it raises very badly needed revenue for public transportation. We've had what we call a subway crisis for the trains are overcrowded. There's a lot of work to be done. And we need the funding to do that a lot of funding. It's estimated that New York will need to spend tens of billions of dollars to fix the subway system and congestion pricing has proven itself to be a really fast effective way to raise money says Bruce places like Singapore, and Stockholm do it London rolled out congestion pricing. And they've seen speeds increased by thirty percent checking in were just passing Grand Central station. We have been in. Cam for six minutes, not bad. It's been a nice, right? Honestly, making pretty good time. There's still plenty of details that need to get ironed out. Not least of which is just how much is this toll going to cost New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested a flat fee per car per day of about eleven or twelve bucks and twenty five dollars for trucks. But there will be some exemptions. The state has already approved breaks for emergency vehicles for people with disabilities and other groups are asking for exemptions. As well delivery truck drivers, livery cab drivers motorcyclists police officers, and that could really affect how much money the congestion pricing plan brings in and at least in Muhammad's view. If all these guys get exemptions. It's not gonna help traffic at all or raise much money. Right now, we're in a very familiar part of town right by the new York Public Library and Bryant park where the New York office of NPR's high indicate high NPR IMP are. Yeah.

"You're not going anywhere. So I had to do something else. You've got to create something as I tried to be funny or tried to create characters or whatever in it. The one time it paid off for me. And I've told this story before on the air was when I was doing radio show in Chicago at somebody heard me on the the heard my voice, and I was doing some character. I don't know what it was. And the guy goes person calls me from an advertising agency and said we have a job for you. Come and I had never been asked to do a voice over run does voice overs decide for a living does well with that does lot of commercials. But you know, it's usually you me announcer type maybe some characters, but no one ever called me to do a voiceover. Go. Why would you want this voice to do a voice over? And so it turns out they wanted to be do a character that they heard me do on the year. And I didn't do I did some sort of cabdriver voice. But I was doing something like, whatever New York. Yeah. That thing. So the guy heard it and said, yeah, we want you for this commercials. I had never done it before. So they called me in I sat down. And that's when I realized that this is probably the greatest scam in the history. That you could make quiet foul. But I'm talking about like a like, the national voice over thing. If you do if you do a national spotlight national TV spot for like, a major like Proctor and gamble kind of thing. And it runs forever, and you have a residual deal. Yeah. You'll make money from here to return. Okay. So I had no idea how this. How that work? I just do that. I showed up at the studio and the guy says to me, okay. We'll do a commercial for glad lock bags, and we need you to do that voice. We heard you do I said what voices is that the New York cabbie? So I did a couple of lines. And they said to me. Okay. Here's who you're going to be. So you've got a whole group of people. Right. I'm sure you've done these sessions before a whole group of advertising agency people on the other side of the glass all huddled around. And they got one person, you know, talking to you and giving you direction. So now, I'm a now, I'm an actor voice actor I've gone from DJ voice, actor and they say to me. Okay. Here's the here's the deal. It's a commercial where a woman opens up a refrigerator, and there's going to be talking vegetables, and talking, you know, whatever in the refrigerator talking you're gonna be playing the part of one of the talking vegetables or. One of the principals. They actually call it. One of the principals principal food item. Yeah. Who am I go? You're going to be the milk carton. Saga milk carton. Okay. Okay. We want you to do that New York cabbie voice as the milk cart. Because you're you're going to be interacting with the woman. So, you know, you're the milk cart. You're the biggest one in the refrigerator. You gotta be the alpha male lay the whole thing. Giving you the whole back story. And then they said, we would like you also do another voice where you can be playing the part of broccoli. So I go. Wow. Look at this for one I should be making some good. I had no idea what the money was going to be or whatever. I did. They got me doing two things. I started out. Here is a carton of milk have already worked my way up to broccoli. Haven't even said anything yet. This is great. So this is where it gets really funny where they're all round there huddled around, and they said to be okay. So so I do by lines as the milk carton. And then they said okay now, we've got that. And I I do like twelve takes of the same thing. Was the same thing. So they said that now you're going to be broccoli. So your line is it's the cheese. That's all you have to say. So think broccoli. Green. Green your broccoli leafy. You're beautiful baby. Take one really, and I go and do some with voice achieves something like that.
