Chuck some athena sudafed new powers that back and he goes to work. He's like oh. Well you gotta go to oregon. Imagine that now we're not allowed to have that. They've changed the narrative and it's not that this thing showed up and stories got changed. Its that for our entire lifetime. The narrative is has been pushed on our throats. Do you think you're having your own ideas. Why do you like what you like. Why do you like what you like. Why did you pick on who you pick on. Why do you why wire wire segregation wire people. Why is it bad to be fat. Wise it you know why is it okay to make fun of somebody who looks different than you right. When i'm tom talking to you guys right down the middle right. When we were kids we were fucking dicks each and every one of us why because we saw it in movies we thought that movies imitated art. Movies admitted life you. We learned to be a deck because we thought it was funny. And then maybe we got hurt when we were younger and are coping mechanisms. Dictated that if we stood stall we stood tall we would never get hurt again so we became astles and a lot of us work through it. I'm i'm one hundred percent one of those people. I was a fucking piece of ship for a very long time. And i know it and it stems from my hatred for self. That's all gone now but a lot of you know when you're in that darkness when you're in that state the media is is showing you stuff and you're like oh this is okay. That's okay oh. I feel better when i hurt somebody. It's easier for me to bring somebody down the lift myself up. The media has been playing since birth and the truth of the matter is humanities natural. Resting places a place of high purity. A place of of high energy high intensity a place of awesomeness. You accomplish an achieve anything if we all stick together in puerto mice things but we can't because we've got this source right now in our can faces everywhere. I'm in the middle of the country. And i still have the influence of this. That people are still sending me this stuff trying to avoid it. You're the coles notes though we've got this entity that is driving us apart. You can do this and you can't do this out of the purpose of safety. How about we all bound together and say you know what fuck it. some of us aren't gonna make it. Some of us are our whole lives up until now so we've got the flu. People died from the flu. People died from syphilis. Fuck back in the day. People having diarrhea dave chapelle made that joke. Fuck oh shit. Got the hershey squirts. Better start making a will you know. And then you're going to hear already say shit like all. They cured polio damn straight. They cured polio. But what gave him pull you in the first place. Nobody asked that question where to polio. Come from there's lots of evidence that says all viruses are man made that it's not natural for human to concoct something so if we can get out of our own heads and look at a much bigger picture outside of the whole cova spectrum. Then you start seeing that the majority of everything that we know has been handed to us and is also in the process of falling apart and what we do brings up another team. You know if we all just stood up. They couldn't play the game on our backs. And don't get me wrong. Don't get these twisted words up. There is a game being played above us for sure and it's also were depression anxiety come from which is my wheelhouse which is how we clear your anxiety and depression we pull you out of the delivered world and we allow your soul to see things how they really truly are and not how one person perceives them to truly be you tap into source and you pull out and you understand who you are and where you are. That's so imperative and this world as it's going right now needs that more and more and maybe it's a good thing that they're pushing us to the brink of this craziness. How much do we rely on everything for so long i. I don't know where. I don't know where where one story ends and the other story begins. But it's just this long running consecutive. Nair renard i mean the most compelling one the most obvious one that we saw was prior to this this. This whole mess was nine eleven. They tried to convince us. That plane flew into the towers. They tried to come into. the plane. flew into the pentagon they tried to commit that a plane flew into the ground in pennsylvania. They showed us the footage. There's no plane in any of any of footage is none whatsoever. There's some cgi. Planes looks like that flying of the towers and even if they're real planes there's there's confusion there but let's just talk about pennsylvania and the pentagon they flat out said a plane hit both of these buildings without a stitch of plane and society accepted that society took that in the news reported that world trade center five had collapsed while she standing there in front of world trade center five the got their hours mixed up. There's holes in that story. There's holes in all kinds of stories. There's holes in stories of pearl harbor. There's holes in stories of where aids came from and what. Aides was in the demographic in the fear that people had the eighties of aids every single. One of these things there's holes in. I mean what the hell was ski. Experiments all about tuskegee experiments. What was that all about. Why do we trust. Why do we trust because we blindly have. Where's our power power is within us. I can go on and on and on about this. Apparently i rambled for a solid twenty minutes right now. But i'm telling you the positive spin on all this is is you have the power. You still have the power you can still do and create what you wanna create. You can still see yourself. And and and yes. I've already said a thousand times. It's going to get worse before it gets better. But true colors will prevail. And we can't allow this tearing it to to keep running rickshaw over us and you know what the way. I'm talking right now. I'm going to be on the list. I'm going to be on the shit list of public enemy number one. I haven't even addressed the facebook blackout. And i wanted to but i'm not i'm just gonna i'm gonna cut it off here and we'll probably talk. We're on the next episode. Because i've got a lot to say about that too and the truth. Is you know. We're all being silenced. Were all being wiped out. I'm gonna touch for. I'm gonna touch on the facebook thing. But i'll tell you this because of how easy it was to just shut that down and you understand that we've all been shadowed band and we've all had you know stuff taken down and we've all been putting facebook jail but they could just take it all away.

"We don't have like the the gun towers and the forty millimeter gas launchers. We no longer have. Men sites deployed a women's sites. There are so many differences now and with the transfer from the man into the women's prisons. It's increasing security because a lot of the transfer requests are coming for maximum security and what people are not aware is yes. Women's prisons in men's prisons have three different security classifications so minimum medium maximum. But that's where it ends men 's security measures for those classifications are more than what the women's are so. For example they have a risk assessment tool that is used to classify people and they took the classification tool for men. It was designed for white men and they applied it to women and found that women do not cover all three security classifications. So basically what they did was they shrunk this down so that women would fit in all three levels so if you were to take the women and apply them to the men you would find that our security risk falls just under medium security classification of the men so when you're transferring in supermax max in media men their security risk is more than what the women are inside so the guards have actually been and they protested of the prison for women in quebec wanting an increase in security. So now resorting back to men's prisons. Why women have to resort back to something that has been found to not work because they want to accommodate these men and the issue that we're having is that yes. There are some transfers better being denied but the men are really good with utilizing legal avenues. So they're they're using that complaint system through correctional service of canada which is the grievance system and then they're escalating their complaints and actually bringing it to the human rights commission or the tribunal and. They're they're either winning or if they do win their cases it opens the door for all the rest to transfer any will have the same issue that the united states is having right now because currently there they are denying some transfers because the former deputy commissioner for women reported in two thousand nineteen that fifty percent of the transfer request coming from sex offenders. So my issue here is right now. Picking and choosing even with the picking and choosing correctional services. Canada cannot keep the women's safe. This policy is one-sided emails. Madonna fai as men are denied. Transfer dude overriding health and safety concerns..

"What was the response to that protest. I was very happy with the turnout. There is a lot of support There's a lot of support from the traffic going by as well as employees that were going into the complex because where we protested. There's actually three federal prisons on that land. There's two men's and one women's so there is a lot of Crash offer sir. Traffic is wall and in visitors and they were really lake thumbs up and recording it. Oh my gosh. I gotta tell my daughter so there it was really receptive. Okay that's good to hear. And i wonder aaliyah olea. Sorry did i just say that again on my god what is it. What's the right. Elliot's very. I wonder what what have you. What are you reckon. Recommending happened like. How do you think that we should be dealing with Trans identified people in prisons bolt. Well prior to the bill. All these changes when you know trans people had to have operations before. I was in prison then with Three trans people and there wasn't no rape issues. They weren't even violent to be honest. So i would you know i. I guess there's no real answer except for blake to see that there's no man inside prisons ever in oh weather. That solution has reversing what they've done. You know knocking to reverse the whole amendment. But i ask ya prepared to keep talking 'til all these assaults stopping the women. Are you know. As much as i'm an abolitionist. And i don't even believe women should be serving their sentences in jail. I you know. In the meantime want them to be safe and free of you know these assaults and harassment for men Of course totally. So you think like. Do you think there is a possibility that we could advocate for an amendment to bill c sixteen. That would say essentially you know if you're may all that's your in a men's prison that said there's no. There's no options. It doesn't matter if you have surgery. It doesn't matter how you identify you know. I think there could be something that could be worked out They need some sort of amendment. Where you know women safety is prioritized over the identification of your gender in a way and there's there's no way there should be a penis in the prison You know even having like male guards. Was sketchy enough. Allies in there So now having you know. Heather were saying the dynamic change just with men in there in the power like it. It has to go You know for years..

"At blows my mind So heather you use submitted a briefing document to the standing committee on public safety national security about this issue. And can you tell me a bit about that you know. Is there an investigation going on right now in terms of this issue of men being transferred to female prisons so i was tipped off by actually the shadow minister for bill blair public safety that there was a standing committee meeting and they were meeting in regards to the office of the correctional investigators report that was put out. There's three areas that they were looking at And the office of the correctional investigator highlighted. How sexual abuse is not being documented in the prisons lake regarding like staff on staff like inmate on inmate staff and in me etc. So i used that avenue to be able to fit in a brief about what was going on in the women's prison so i actually i don't know if you're aware but i put out a survey a couple months ago and i've been sending it out to women with lived experience and they've been filling it out and i've been providing an honorarium so i'm collecting all this data from the women and i'm going to put out a summary of the results but i incorporated a lot of what i was being told into the brief so i put in there. How many women had reported that they were sexually assaulted or sexually harassed or groomed and what was going on inside so the brief is available online at about ten pages and then i also added an appendix a with a spreadsheet that i've been keeping track of all the males who identify as women and where they are what their crimes are and if they're applying for transfer great. Glad to hear that. Somebody's doing this work. It sounds like it's an incredible amount of work. Yes and there's been. Approximately seventy women are so that have been filling out the survey so. There's a lot of information that i've received from women that are inside and women that are outside and another thing too is i Emailed this survey to all the halfway houses in canada and only about one or two even told their clients about it and had them fill out and send it back to me. The rest have completely ignored it and will not provide it to their clientele. So so you you both spoke at this this event that you you organized an abbotsford On the weekend is that right. Yes yeah and tell me..

"You managed to engage any politicians on this issue. No like what does justin trudeau after. Say about all this. Justin trudeau will not speak on the issue at all. Pretty much know liberals will speak on it. I had one meeting with a liberal. Mp and they kind of took over the meeting with a sex work as sex work and tried to get me on board with thought so they weren't even interested in the whole prison aspect. My mp is liberal. She ignored me for about two years before she got a pile on on the internet. She finally got a hold of me. And then just dropped off the face of the earth again there are some conservative. Mp's that i've interviewed with Also who gave me the heads up on the standing committee. So i was able to get a briefing and other than that. The only party that is in support of not having males transfer into women's prisons is the people party of canada And have do they have a position on this. The people's party of canada. I believe they do They are in support of women having the right to their own safe spaces like in sports shelters prison st- etc and elia. What's been your experience trying to talk to people about this and to get you know politicians and and people in power to to pay attention to what's going on and how this impacts vulnerable women While to be honest. I i'm a huge example was i was actually at the. Gm that the canadian association of elizabeth fry had and i was hoping that out of the room of sixty. Like i said you know. Workers support workers that are paid to help women that they'd listen so when they didn't the woman was ushered out and these professionals were saying things like oh they need to be educated and that's so transphobic and things like that so since i've tried to you know reach out to as many i guess like service workers as i can and it's honestly the same thing you either don't get replied You are label transphobic. You know life had many people. Just delete me and won't even like you know see on the low level like field as me. I've reached out to a couple people in bc and the government here that i actually like new kind through all of this. That somewhat supported me beating advocate for these women and all of that reach out to to actually and both of them. I just deleted off of everything. And i've never and i didn't get a reply so i kind of you know you're kind of our voices heard and yeah it's it's pretty hasn't been very successful. I guess I mean it's just so maddening because you know the the people who are ignoring you. You know like the liberal party. The and dp has completely ignored this issue And you know when they're also the ones who are supporting these bills and policies and legislation to allow men to essentially do whatever they want. they'll be transferred into like any women's face. They shift trans. These are the people who claim to be progressive to care about women like you know true firms himself as feminine and meanwhile they're totally silencing women throwing women under the vice lots exactly at right like these women are representing women..
"canadian government" Discussed on Feminist Current
"I'm thinking because it was you know women aren't being listened to essentially in it's like and the the women who are being listened to are the vulnerable woman which is so ironic. I think because this issue is framed around protecting the supposedly vulnerable. You know. it's the trans identified males who they refer to trans women. Who are we know are said to be super marginalized and this is why. They need to be allowed into women's shelters and women's prisons and women's changes and things like that. And meanwhile these these women like like you to who you know and many more women who actually have lived experience have been incarcerated have been marginalized and vulnerable. And and you guys are saying this is this is dangerous to have men being housed with women and and you you are the ones being silence and and marginalized yet again. Well yes it's easy pass policy that doesn't impact you right Okay so so you recently or Nuys an event in abbotsford b c of course at the fraser valley institute for women to protest men being housed women's correctional facilities. And and alina. You you were in that prison. That facility is that correct at some point. Yeah i spent my identify your sentence in that facility there. Okay when when was that. I was from two thousand five when i was released in two thousand nine. And you know so what's happening at that facility that triggered you both to to to protest to to organize this event and to speak well again. The fact that there's five males inside the institution rate now is a huge thing. That doesn't sit very well and again. We know how voiceless those women are in there. The women right now are scared to even speak out when especially places late. The elizabeth fry society or the only place they can get up their parole to. That's only halfway hosts not accept women and if they speak out for that. They're scared of being punished. They're scared of the clicks jailer. Creating it's just a house really awful dynamics so when heather said she was coming up here..

"I just wanted to get my time done and get through everything. I knew what was going on. I was sexually harassed while i was in grand valley. But i still kinda thought that i deserved what happened to me. And that it was normal and then as elliot mentioned there was The canadian association of elizabeth fry society's national agm which was in ottawa ontario in june two thousand nineteen and. That's when i first met a leah. An i also was aware because of that conference dot there was nobody standing up for the women inside and that was the push that i needed to start speaking out and since then i started an organization with some canadian. Women called canadian women. Sex base rights. And since then i've just been working with women across canada and internationally on women and girls rights while incarcerated and and you both mentioned this. Agm which seems to be kind of like a turning point for you both. Can you tell me more about what happened there. This was an agm in two thousand. Nineteen the elizabeth fry society. Am i getting this right. Yes so case. The canadian association of elizabeth fries. I kind of look at it. Like an umbrella. So cates is on the top and then all the e fries are like the spokes. So they're under caves membership. So any policies that caves pass the rise as well who follow policy and e fries. Are they run. Do they run. They run transition houses for women. They help women who are escaping violence. Is that right. Yes so they operate all our halfway houses so our community residential facilities and then they also have additional programming for women. So what happened at that. Agm that kinda triggered you both in terms of of really you know pursuing and fighting this issue for me. It was seeing how upset our are sister was who got up and talked about her experience of being sexually harassed in groomed by a prolific serial pedophile. When i got there.

What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?
"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were. I think non-indigenous people Just tune out because the the level of the horror if they had to face it would radically transformed their feelings about the country that they live in if they honestly address that
How Indigenous Musicians Are Using Song to Reclaim Their Identities
"Singer. Jelly wolf was raised as a jehovah's witness a community that had very strict rules. Jelly grew up. Not knowing her father.

How Canada-China relations became strained to the breaking point
"It seems fair to say and listen. It's probably a big understatement. That relations between the canadian government and its counterpart in china are strained between detentions of citizens criticism of china's human rights abuses claims of genocide. A failed trade deal threatening canada's canada's allies and i could go on. There's no shortage of grievances right now but even that doesn't quite describe the situation. Canada finds itself in. China is a global superpower a superpower on the rise over the past four years as the united states has turned inwards. China does the big fish. We are a little fish. That's just how it is. And if they want to make an example of us they probably can't. So what are our options if canada wanted to retaliate with diplomatic measures. How would we do it if we wanted to. Lean on our allies to intervene on our behalf. Would they if. Canada decided that it was going to take an active role in foreign affairs and marshall resistance to the chinese government's. Assent how would we even go about that. Where would we begin. How did things go so wrong with this relationship in less than five years. How could relations get better. And it's also fair to ask. Do we want them to

With no Keystone XL pipeline, whats Albertas Plan B?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jason marcus off is the alberta correspondent for maclean's magazine. He joins us to try to explain what happens now. Hello jason wish me luck so in the couple of weeks now. Since joe biden has taken office and immediately cancelled the keystone excel permit. How his albert reacted. Not well as could be. Expected is opposed the way i'd put it. You know jason kenney got elected with a three word slogan not a phrase three word slogan jobs economy pipelines pipelines was the big punctuation point on that. And it's been a big issue for help out bird government and the economy for a long time that we don't have this big glut of oil sands and oil were producing and nowhere really to shit or no way to ship it out of there. That's been a big drag on alpern awale prices and benjamin prices for quite a while now keystone excel has been in the works for basically a decade now uh since they applied for this project as transcanada energies into long that they're no longer called transplanted called tc energy. Canada became less of an on vogue term to use in the names and this this has become the gun of the poster child. The original poster child for environmental activism and push back against oil industry pipelines The americans have been pushing back on this south from the left for quite a while. obama killed in two thousand fifteen. He decided to not allow permit. Donald trump brought it back in two thousand seventeen and it was no surprise. Almost anybody that Biden was going to kill it in in twenty twenty one Once he got nauseated and yet it was portrayed as a major disappointment and huge letdown for the government and to some extent for canada. Yeah i was gonna ask if obama killed this thing once already And it's really unpopular with the american left. Why didn't it seem like we were more prepared for this. You know i played a clip In the intro of kenny reacting on the day of biden's inauguration but surely as soon as it became clear he won. This was coming down the pipeline. There was an optimism and almost. I'd say an idealism about how a biden administration might act. People knew well the the history and the baggage that this project had that it was killed by obama when joe biden was the vice president of course and this had become this iconic push for the environmental movement did it it had that totemic status and yet there were people within the canadian government and especially the alberta government who thought they crashed an argument Through which this would work and that had several layers to it one Was the fact that there were many union. Jobs in america And in canada on the go for this there were was going to produce jobs at a time when jobs are scarce and these economies need these construction industrial and infrastructure jobs and they were hoping that would appeal to the lunch bucket. Union leanings of joe biden in his administration. There was also an argument that this was not the same project and the ever loyal sent throughout the same oil sands that they were in twenty fifteen when this project was rejected by obama or before twenty fifty back when there was much less of an issue of oil sands cleaning up their act like there is now out the oil sands have worked their best to lower the carbon intensity and the carbon footprint of their projects and they were going Tc energy the company that was going to build. This pipeline was talking about making their project. Carbon zero carbon neutral net zero through various means the actual pipeline construction itself. Not the oil flowing through it and there was also gonna talk Giving indigenous which oppose this quite often in the states Some equity stake in it so there were various ways. The canadians albertans thought they could thread the needle and make this an appeal peeling project. Make it some kind of package. Deal with other green initiatives that That canada and biden would go through jointly but the legacy of this project the baggage of this project mistakes the politics surrounding this whole saga from obama to trump to biden Made it an easy win for For biden to kill despite all the positives that this project could have given

AI Tries to Save the Whales
"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

"The Canadian government has approved Canada to be a hub city to find a city in Canada to be one of the hubs so I didn't realize that was like tomorrow yeah right now well I just read that there's some debate that Toronto is a front runner maybe not maybe Edmonton who knows maybe Vancouver don't know but that IT sales I've been no see they they they got they got to put the ads are gonna put the Western Conference teams in this city and they don't want to use Edmonton because admin tens in the playoffs not Edmonton then right so they get there you know I would think it's a Ronald makes the most sense has the most hotels probably has the most sheets of ice and also would obviously unless of course then this is the other interesting thing a lot of professional hockey players have grown up in Toronto so they could have family living there even though they play for other teams okay I don't have homes in Toronto in the off season there's got to be someplace in the middle of Canada would like it nobody living there with his house heavy thousand sheets of ice you know because every Canadian plays hockey where the players can go there and and play you know in the whatever Sault Saint Marie you're in Medicine Hat or whatever the hell these other places art is send them they're gonna know people are going to send the Toronto one of the most highly populated cities in Canada every town in Canada's got like fifteen sheets of ice in the in like your backyard all right however just remembered the read the reason they're going to Vegas is because they have the golden knights not only their practice facility but they also have their stadium in their stadium is wired for NHL games to be able to be televised so you have to go somewhere where you have the infrastructure to be able to televise these games and that's why drama makes sense actually have a number of places where they can do that including where the Marlies player which is the minor league team of the maple Leafs the Marlies by the way so another hurdle I guess is been cleared as the NHL looks to have their restart I think in early August and we'll see if we do get there football wise you get the Jamal Adams story that's all over the place about him apparently wanted to be traded again requesting that but the jets not likely to say okay probably will deny that J. C. Tretter of the Browns president of the NFL Players Association was talking about really the issues with coming back and playing with covert nineteen still among us he says there are many many challenges they still have to figure out this is a game that almost was built to pass this virus around pretty much especially in the trenches every play you're getting someone who spit on your right in your face when you're when you're off the defensive linemen are you are you know a little way from each other all the time that this game was built to transmit this virus you know and I know that before I tell you when you hear him say it you sit there and say good lord how the everything on the field but generally they do officer these days yeah I'm probably sell here is basically the players have not said I guess they haven't had their conference call their vote to go back and play here was Tretter we are their voice the union leadership is the voice of the players and making sure the players feel safe and secure as well as making sure they feel that their families are safe and secure and that's always going to be our focus and man before we ever get close to having a boat we have a lot lot of work left to be done to get to a point where everybody feels safe to go back and we're at a point now today's June nineteenth as we know and the first game the hall of fame game as it was supposed to be early August between the cowboys and Steelers and I don't think they've postponed it but you had them say out there that it's very unlikely at this point to be no if no fans for shore and who knows if they can even play what we five weeks away from that six weeks away from that so it mag maybe seven weeks I guess but it's not that far off here's Dr Allen sills on the Dan Patrick show he's running the show for the league the head medical professional a professional what's the approach going forward to try and make this season happen what's going to happen because in this situation where we're going to be adapting football to the growth of our stock of ours so it's it's it's crucially important that we have that mindset of flexibility adaptability and using that new knowledge along the way and he was asked his biggest concern about playing this fall I think like everyone we're dealing with a novel virus that no one can really predict and so I think that it's impossible to know which direction it's going to take us and and and I think that's true not just for the NFL but for the country in the world I'm curious about this because everybody's talking about the the second wave that's probably coming here if New York in New Jersey continue to go in the direction they're going in and others follow follow suit why does it come back because we're indoors more I guess it's the same answer why the flu comes back right it's the NE Hwy colds come back you know it's the same type of premise that I guess the the spread of germs during those months seems to happen at a higher rate all right but I I I I am I just I don't know I don't know why why do we why are people sick with like I don't get summer colds right but I get colds in the fall in the winter why is that I'm sure it's obviously the crown of ours is much more severe than that but I'm saying it's got to be the same premise with germs in those months here here may be some good news maybe because of the way that we are thinking about this now that when we get to October well albeit much more aware of what we're doing so well right our lives a little bit more the way that Connor aside some lives his life protecting himself at all times and check the other people around him wearing the I. D. N. ninety five mask which was very normal for him and you know he he used to get strange looks on the trip on the train he'd get strange looks on the plane like what what's wrong with you do you have the cooties or something whatever and you know he's in he I've obviously he came on and talk to us about it and said look this is the way I have to live my life so maybe there is a conscious shift in the way that we handle ourselves around cold and flu season and by the way we all did that around cold and flu season anyway we just didn't wear the masks when we were out in public or in public places so the mask may end up being a permanent part of the way we live our lives until we have answers well speaking of answers one more from doctor sells what happens if a player test power coach test positive we want to identify anyone who's newly infected at the earliest possible moment and get them isolated from the rest of the team environment and again this isn't just about players coaches athletic trainers strength and conditioning staff anybody will work on that TV go system we were identified at the earliest phase inspection remove them from the rest of the environment get them the appropriate treatment and then watching monitor that recovery at least two weeks are you as good are we thinking that most owners are seventy or older not most but a lot I would think most of them are yeah I mean there are six thousand over Jerry Jones.

I felt that not only do I feel that many other families across the country feel that in many circumstances, they're treated like their loved one didn't matter that she. She was not an important part of their lives that she was not a part of their family. The report that came out says, candidate is complicit in genocide against indigenous women, and girls what does that statement mean to you a genocide against indigenous women and girls. It means that it took report for candidate recognize that there is a genocide against indigenous women, and girls because of the racism that exists the way that society perpetuates violence against indigenous women, and girls lead feel safe in our own country in it's really important for key decision makers, such as the Canadian government and institutions who provide those resources and supports, or the lack of to indigenous women and girls to recognize that and to come to the table and allow indigenous women and girls to lead the very critical changes that are required to make Canada, safer indigenous women and girls. So Hilda just want you to make a clear door audience at what this inquiry. Is really about is not kind of blaming Canada for the desk, but it's really about neglect for these communities. I getting that, right. I would say, yeah. Neglect is correct terminology to use. But also more so that making Canada aware that as Canadians as the state that we all have a responsibility to end violence against indigenous women and girls. And these are truths that have been shared by families and survivors who've been deeply impacted by the issue of missing, and murdered indigenous women and girls. So we cannot turn a blind eye to that. I have a lot of hope with respect to this report because it's the first time in Canadian history that a national inquiry has occurred with all provinces, and territories, signing on and being part of the national inquiry so that in itself is different from any other type that has occurred in Canada. And it also holes on different provinces, and territories and the federal provincial municipal. And first nations government accountable to ensure that the calls for Justice are implemented hill..

Canadian government spokesman says immediate answers are two parent. We don't pretend there's an easy way out. So you'd has lived in Canada since he was a child, but he was born in Pakistan. He hasn't been to that country since his family emigrated Canada has not threatened to strip ISIS fighters of citizenship. But it says it has no obligation to bring them home safe.

I know I still have to buy water bed sheets. Even though we have a regular mattress. They have mattresses that are the all what they call, California, queens. That was the so yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So that's why I have a brought a huge Cup of coffee this morning. Because I heard on. The today show that climate change got eight years is causing could cause us not to be able to have our morning Cup of coffee because of coffee beans and the area of the world. That can grow coffee beans is shrinking, and they showed a map the map, just shrunk. So I just rooted double cub, I've sort of been relying pretty sure it's out of here. I was telling Alison earlier I had fly up to Toronto Canada in when you fly out of Toronto on Air Canada. They line up all the planes that are going to Indianapolis on one concourse, and they are literally lined up, and you one goes next goes in their all time out about ten minutes apart.

I go crap injury. We're going to get home. So let's think about Air Canada that is owned by who probably the Canadian government. Yeah. See that's the thing in. It's the beer store in Canada. That's where you buy all your all everything is controlled by the by the government. And it's just I'm not a big Canadian fan. I mean, I love the people candidate. I love going up there, fishing and doing all the stuff and meet with the guys I meet with snotty towards the Americans.

No, it's just like they all set in Lancer. Not taking this very seriously about this climate change. What could we do to get their exactly? Going after the coffee. The study was done in their early sixties about what would the world unite around in order to control them. This is for real. And they said that it had to be the ecology it had to be the environment that that's the because it wouldn't be borders or wouldn't be territorial wouldn't be tribal, but everybody could come together if we thought that if the environment was at the end of the world, or maybe a meteor was going here.
