Fresh update on "cantrell" discussed on Behind The Lens
"Michael. The City of New Orleans is facing massive budget crisis. That means likely Personnel cuts, which means the New Orleans Civil Service Commission will be involved mayor Cantrell recently worked behind the scenes to get her favorite candidate installed on the commission, which is supposed to be a political and the city council may have broken State summer. Laws when they voted to approve that nomination. Who is the Civil Service Commission? What do they do? And why is it important one over simplified way to think about the Civil Service Commission? And the Civil Service division is like the HR department for city employees the city, you know besides doing all the things we know it for like collecting taxes and you know all those government functions. It's also a major employer in the city employee being somewhere around four thousand six hundred employees. That's not exact but somewhere in that range and so the cell service commission and the Civil Service division. They they rule on Personnel decisions suck. If you want to add a new position. If you need a new accountant for the Department of Finance, you would you know, try to create a position through the Civil Service Commission. It's also the place that employees can appeal decisions that have been made about their employment whether they've been fired or demoted or think they should have deserved to raise so it's kind of that that Forum that decides on Personnel issues. For the cities rather large Workforce explain what the Civil Service Commission is and how it is populated. Yeah. So so the the Civil Service Commission be clear. There's a civil service division which is you know, after employees and then the governing body of that is the Civil Service Commission and that's made up of five people. They're all appointed by the city council, but four of them are appointed from a from lists created by local University presidents and that fits the is appointed by the city council from home list created by city employees. So the the seat were dealing with here is the Dillard University seat that has been held for years. I Michelle Craig who for the past five years has served as the chair of the commission as well. And what we know is that she was interested in in continuing in that role. She had the support of of the director of the Civil Service division, but she was not ultimately appointed instead a woman in Ruth White Davis was Was appointed she's had a pretty long career in the Department of Veterans Affairs. She does client services within kind of our local offshoot of the Federal Department of Veteran Affairs. But yeah, that's who's been appointed. And now she will be is expected to be taking Michelle Craig C. And why did Cantrell favor her it's interesting because you are reporting we didn't see any evidence and we didn't get any answers from the mayor for exactly why they wanted Ruth White Davis. What we heard more about was dissatisfaction with how the Civil Service Commission was running as a whole and what were the issues at a very basic level. The civil service is the Civil Service Commission makes a lot of decisions having a good things like employee discipline Gorillaz layouts promotions demotions all that sort of stuff. So in a lot of cases, they're sort of it's it's basically it is both a bath Policy-making and and and a judicatory board the communications from the mayor suggested that in its adjudicatory capacity wage was ruling basically with employees and against the city more often than she would like one key issue seems to be that about a year ago off Division hired a new executive Council of someone who had previously represented the local firefighters Union here also on the commission one of the five Commissioners off the seat that's nominated by employees. That's held by a member of the the firefighters unions as well. So there's indications that they thought there was an over representation at least to this one Union wage and that they were a little you know, there was one line basically that you know, the commission and Craig in particular had become hesitant to deny employee appeals. So again talking about that a juice. Tori function, you know, it is interesting though because if you look at Michelle, you know what we're talking here about you know, whether there are too many labor interests on the commission or not, but it's important to note. I think that Michelle Krebs her history. She's an attorney specializing in employment and labor law, but if you look at her past she is really mostly you know, her business is really mostly representing, you know, employers and businesses and helping them stay in line with employment laws. I'm in fact, she's just, you know, she's defending companies against unions in the past before as well. So in in in in Iraq other side, there's nothing you know, I guess that's the overall calculus. It seems to be the overall motivation. But when we're just looking at Ruth White Davis and Meshell Craig, it's not like that Dynamic is super clean. Just between those two know but the Optics I guess are that the chessboard is being set up to favor what maybe huge layoffs in the future to favor birth? The city from from adverse exactly litigation control in her letter. She she actively lobbied to the city council for Ruth White Davis to take over and in her letter off, you know, she warns that with the current commission under Michelle Craig's leadership, you know, there was this risk that their decision is were going to create quote unfunded mandates unquote. So the subtext there seems to be that if certain Personnel Cuts aren't approved. It's going to put the city in this, you know, financially untenable position. So that was kind of the subtext of her reaching out to the city council. Yeah, and just I would just add that, you know this issue of this issue of Union interests on the Civil Service Commission, you know, I I think that there's a chance that that's being offered sort of as as as sort of its sort of an excuse the mayor the mayor has to deal with all sorts of south side boards and commissions some of which are appointed by the mayor herself some of which are appointed or dominated by by other bodies such as this case and the mayor's always going to have an interest off. Um in having people on these boards and commissions who are going to vote that the way that she wants them to vote, you know, you know the union thing I just I I don't.
Donald Trump reiterates threat to scale back US economic ties with China
"Had sort of a wide ranging if I can call it that news conference at the White House. One of things he said, is I'm and I may be open to disengaging altogether with China. We're starting Punishing US Cos. If they're doing things that China should be doing back here in United States, what do you make of that? Is that a real change of policy? It's sort of Ah note that he struck throughout his 3.5 years in office. It's absolutely a note that he has struck during his his entire administration. Something he ran on in 2016 is something he's been talking about since the early odds when trying to gain a session to the WTO's. In some ways, it's incredibly consistent with his ideology. You know what that means, however, in practice, especially before the election is somewhat unclear, although I mean if you look at the what this administration is doing, not just what they're saying what they're doing as it relates to China. It is taking steps towards decoupling, especially around sensitive technologies around export controls. Things like visa restrictions, travel restrictions, so there is, you know, kind of incremental decoupling. I know. I think we would argue already happening on what that means for a second term, especially President Trump obviously has re elected. Is a big question. Mark does that D complain? Only intensify. And yes, you're right. His wide ranging press conference he would seem to signal that. Yes, yes, it would send a house it register with voters. Voters are not so concerned it. I don't think about China. One way the other. This won't make sure they have a job that they can afford the grocery bill. They can afford the rent bill. Do the voters really connect being tough on China with they're getting jobs. It hasn't worked so far. So well, has it. Yeah, it's that the interesting point. I think that in some ways, China is a easy scapegoat for both political parties in Washington on DH. In some ways, I think it's also registering with voters a Pew research and did a poll the summer that showed that almost 70% of Americans have a negative view on China. Right now, that is the most it is that the highest it's ever been a again since China gained deputy o session. In 2000 won. So In some ways, the voter sentiment has changed around China. I think it makes it difficult for either political party to look like they're cozy up with China as the results, But I think you're right, though. If this is not necessarily kitchen table issue, Although your China has been come the easy scapegoat, at least from from a policy maker, a Zeiss, eh? It's always a real treat to have you with us. Libby that's living Cantrell, She's Pimco, head of public policy. Coming up here

The Last US Civil War Pension
"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.
Relief package talks stall
"Week, we were told that a stimulus package of Congress was imminent any day any minute But now it doesn't appear that we're going to get anything even. Maybe this week, maybe even in September to take us through all this is Libby Cantrell. She's head of public policy at Kim Pimco. So, Libby what is going on? And because we thought we're going to have it for sure. I don't even think they're talking right now, are they Yeah, well, but afternoon, David, and they're not necessarily talking on and you know the agree that there was some optimism last week that And maybe some of this was just posturing and we would get a deal by this week. Obviously, that that does not look likely. At this point. However, the framework for a deal is there on DH. There is in more agreement, then disagreement on some of the big items. But the big sticking point, as you know, is the state and local funding, and Democrats are insisting on funding at a trillion dollars. Republicans, of course in their bill didn't put any money for state and local funding. That is sort of the big area where they're far apart. However, as we're going into the election, Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, has many folks in his conference are quite vulnerable and who are likely going to be agitating for some of that state and local funding. So I think the bottom line here is That even though there's quite a lot of brinksmanship and posturing, there will likely get something down just because the political downside risk is just honestly too great. I'm not doing anything. Livy is your best guess that President Trump's for executive orders over the weekend made things harder or easier get a deal done because it feels like sort of every sort of put their pencils back down and forgot about this since he did those executive orders. Yeah, it's a great plan. Do you think that and those were in some ways more more symbolic than substantive? I think he was trying to re balance the negotiations trying to increase leverage. For Republicans, and maybe he did that for a day or two. But I think the broader recognition is that those executive orders are limited in terms of what they can actually do for the economy. The unemployment insurance benefit in particular, looks like it's going to be very hard for states said to implement it only lasts for a few weeks anyway. So I think that there is a broader recognition that these you know Theo didn't do very much and you know, at the end of the day Congress has to act and you saw Majority leader McConnell come out last night and basically saying that negotiators needed to restart talks, So maybe the put a pause on those negotiations for a day or two. But I wouldn't be surprised if you know if congressional negotiators didn't start talking again in the in the next few days or so. We'll

"cantrell" Discussed on Amanpour
"Some news that we adjust learning and that is apparently the British prime minister. Boris Johnson has left intensive care. And he's being moved back to a hospital ward where he received close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery. Now later in the program we look at how some countries like Israel and Hungary a seizing emergency powers during this pandemic. They say to better deal with it. But critics say is just an old fashioned assault on democracy. I'll be speaking to the Hungarian Foreign Minister. But First Corona virus has hit Louisiana hard and new data reveals that the viruses hitting african-americans hardest with the state's black community accounting for seventy percent of deaths. Even though they only make up thirty three percent of the population the mayor of New Orleans Latorre Cantrell says this disparity is reflected nationwide because of systemic problems like poverty traps and lack of resources. Meantime critics say New Orleans should've locked down earlier. The mayor tells Walter Isaacson. Why Mardi Gras went ahead madame? Mayor that joining us. Thank you for having me. We've seen over the past few days now. A decline in the amount of hospitalization Decline in the use of respirators. Have we reached the point? Where your stay at home? Measures seemed to be flattening. The core We have reached a point to where are stay at home efforts. In mandates they are working We have to maintain the mandates the stay at home orders. This is the time that we do not let up that we get more aggressive as it relates to the stay at home mandates we do not want to regress. We want to continue to make progress in so we're not claiming victory at all And we are just now starting to see the curve. So we're not in the situation where we're flattening we are approaching the Kerr and We're shifting in pivoting really into not only more care but stopping people from dying and that's the focus. We want to stop the deaths from happening. You know we're New Orleans not very good at social distancing and I'm here in the French quarter and I looked outside. Now see that you have police cars at breaking up anybody. Who's in a crowd walking around trying to go? How have you been trying to enforce this? Stay at home order. Well the biggest level of enforcement is one having the presence of the law enforcement but at the same time pushing for personal responsibility and we as we look at the mobility data from cell phone usage. We know that seventy three percent of our people in terms of moving around. They're not so they are are adhering to the mandate taking a very seriously and we are as well as a city because we cannot allow people to move about a break the law and do nothing about it so when we act swiftly it really sets the tone that not only do we mean business but this crises is it serious people are dying and people are sick when you have cell phone data you have the cameras traffic cameras around the city. How do you balance the concerns? People might have about privacy with the need to look at it as much information as possible to see who's moving around well one. We're not all we're looking for and we're not using our traffic cameras award took up to follow people. That's not what we do As a relates to the cell phone data it strictly around mobility how you can see and you don't even the individualize is just really the traffic and so we're not Cross the line with people's personal information or data points but we are using it to see if people are following the rules and they are staying put and that's a good thing with the recent decline in the need for hospitalization in New Orleans. And the reduction of the need for ventilators. Do you think that's going to change how we use the Convention Center in our emergency preparedness? Well first of all our people are still in the hospital. I don't want to give the sense. That folks are not hospitalized. They are and they are still at record numbers. But what we're seeing is that our people are one coming off those ventilators sooner rather than later. the surge capacity at the Convention Center our Medical Monitoring Facility opened on yesterday. We opened up with fewer than twenty patients there We are saying that based on how well our healthcare workers are doing the best job ever within those hospitals. It does make us feel that we will not have to surge up to the capacity of three thousand so right now. It's at one thousand. We believe that that will be sufficient but again the convention center is for region one and that's multiple parishes that make up region. What so we may find ourselves being a much greater service to our our our Regional PARISHES THAN JUST ORLEANS. Our family homes or in the same neighborhood right in the heart of New Orleans called Broadmoor during Katrina. You worked with my father and others in trying to make sure. We came back neighborhood by neighborhood. Reflect on that for a moment and how that's helping you organize neighborhood recovery's come out of this well why it is engaging the people who are on the ground meaning these neighborhood leaders you know they have a role to play so. I have been engaging them multiple ways whether that is having a consistent conference calls with them calling them to task with helping. What'S FEEDING CLEANING UP? Even their their communities their areas knowing their neighbors you know a disaster is not the time to to to to start learning. Who People are. You should know that and we have been trained to do this particularly in the Post Katrina Environment. So reminding people that you know. Your neighbors are your first responders. And you have to be organized. And and so Organized a government organized community in many ways like I did post Katrina have over thirteen active committees that engages. The business community the hospitality tourism made. It just goes on and on the death care community of course neighborhoods a public schools. I mean all of these different Mechanisms it helps want to give people accurate information which is essential and also keeps them not only informed but it empowers them to be a part of the solution and end to get out of the way you know. Don't don't hurt us was we. Were preparing for Mardi Gras. You worked very closely with some of the feds the FBI. Everybody else to make sure that the security was great during Mardi Gras did anybody from homeland security or the federal government. One you about the pandemic and say you should do something differently. Oh No not at all. Well there were no red flags are given to the city of New Orleans through our unified command and leading up to up to Mardi Gras We had increased our rating with the federal government sear to rating for Mardi Gras. Which we've never had before which means additional resources that will flow through the federal government as well as people on the ground so I- special agents on the ground in the community walking with the chief in our public safety team every parade so nobody ever recommended. You should cancel. Mardi Gra Ono. One recommended that we cancel Mardi Gras and In a even when I moved to cancel Saint Patrick's Day and and Super Sunday march a nine All Hell broke loose with that as well being ridiculed at the state level and all but it was the right thing to do and when I look at the forecast of data not only. Did we do the right thing? We saved countless lives. And we'll continue to do that. Would have you asked for from the federal government or the state government that you've not received. What are your priorities? Now well the priorities you know have been a definitely around the PPA getting the protective equipment. That are frontline workers. Our employees our first responders that they desperately need and consistently. That's been a continued struggle. But we're saying things come come in. Testing wasn't issue initially but we're testing more than any other city in the country and we're second to Iceland right now which is a real reflection in the numbers in the cases. But you have to. You have to have the data to know where you are and how you're doing so I'm happy about that as relates to the Stanley Stimulus package we Were very aggressive. On the front end of galvanizing our federal delegation as well as our state delegation for advocating for the needs of the city which led to assume infusion of of stimulus dollars even set aside for Orleans through Hud. Amer like so things are moving. We just need to make sure that the city is at the table as resources will flow from the federal government to the state because the city will not receive directly because of our population sought. WanNa make sure we're in line to get our fair share. You know we our economy again driven by half metality. We have over one hundred ten thousand workers that are attached to that and more of the the GIG economy and the resources that they need gap financing the you know their family. Steady is huge We believe that we're going to need to feed over two hundred thousand over the over the next couple of weeks daily and so these continue to be some needs but I'm hopeful based on the response of our federal delegation coming together working across those by partying being across lines to deliver seventy percent of corona virus cases in Louisiana among African Americans. Even though African Americans only thirty three percent of the population. Why is it affecting the black community more? Well I think what this pandemic has exposed particularly in the United States. And it's not that we don't know right but it has absolutely Exposed for job the fragility Within our community the black community the working Within working families the disparity gaps that existed that we knew were prevalent not only in New Orleans but the United States of America but it It brings it home in these instances. So it's a public health disparity issue and public health touch everything from housing to employment to physical health to wellness The economics it all matters end so black folks in regards to the disparity gap that exists in this country. Make up the majority that fall in that gap and so are most vulnerable. So when you're in a when you're faced with the crises like we're in it's your most vulnerable people within your population who suffer the most so we will continue to see this if we don't address These disparity needs that we've known about you know for decades for generations but No longer I believe that we can continue to avoid a meeting where they are when we know that their needs are there which steps are being taken for the poorest in the city of for the poorest this is our most vulnerable what. I say is My street homeless. You know and getting them off the street. We have been able to do some of that. I still have about one hundred and forty that still remain on the street that I need to find housing or accommodations for and we're working towards that every single day and then having to also deal with residents in their neighborhood to want to try to embrace this not my backyard a type of concept but in a crises that will not fly and And even outside with crises from my perspective but were managing it through Speaking directly with residents with their concerns and alleviating their concerns everyone matters in this city in our most vulnerable absolutely but a part of that.

"This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. We are discussing black lung disease with NPR investigative correspondent Howard berkes before we bring in our next guest. Howard. Let's continue with you a bit more, particularly in light of some of the comments that we've been getting from folks BAAs tweeted, I worked for a member of congress from West Virginia Representative, Bob wise. It was nineteen eighty nine nineteen ninety black. Lung was a big deal back. Then everyone knew it was really bad and was killing miners and would keep killing minors. What the hell happened? Good question. Howard. What did why why we're more miners getting sick? Well, there was an upsurge an uptick in upsurge in basic black lung starting in the nineteen ninety s got worse throughout the two thousands. We're talking about here. Also is the advanced stage of black lung, which has also had a very serious uptick. And that's with this epidemic is all about. And so what happened is that coal mines were cutting more rock with coal and that rock contains courts in that courts, when it's mind when it's cut up create silica dust, or at least a dust that contain silica particles, and it's the silica that is twenty times more toxic than coal dust alone. And that is causing this advanced disease, and that was happening because the big call seems in Appalachia basically were out sm- thinner seams were left those thinner seams were embedded in in in rock in Appalachia. That's mostly sandstone containing. Courts. So there was a lot more cutting of rock with coal during this time period. And that's what that's what scientists believe is behind this epidemic that we're seeing now that came up quite a bit among some of the miners spoke to here's a mash up four of them. Bill Cantrell, James Muncie, herald, Dotson, and Randall Owens, here's what they said back in eighties. And early nineties none of this mouth. But as it went on. Matter where you weren't you at rock from last twenty years. Okay. Moron. Cocoa all the same. We're gone. Harding, solid co left and there were more rock in the coal co probably eight inches thick rock. Six foot. The more Iraq you had to cut the district. What it's like being in a room full of smoke. Like, you're sitting in the cloud walkman to evolve Bank. You're inhaling inhalant into your lungs as well. Fiberglass it cuts, you choke. You. I suspected up constantly new. We just can't keep the dust down get enough work. Those were Bill Cantrell, James Muncie, herald Dotson, and Randall Owens now Howard you analyzed figure federal regulatory data that were collected over the last few decades from dust collection monitors did they show an increased exposure to the more dangerous type of dust that silica dust. What what that data shows is that there were twenty one thousand instances of excessive exposure to silica in the thirty year time period that the data was collected. Now that is a small percentage fifteen percent of the total number of samples that had silica. But that fifteen percent represents those twenty one thousand exposures, and because silica is so toxic. And because it lodges in lungs in. It's. It can't be expelled, and because disease then begins to form, those are very significant exposures. So that data which the agency had, you know, it's the agency's data that data shows that there were what appeared to be a significant amount of exposures that might help. Explain what we're seeing right now in terms of the occurrence of disease. So I wanna make sure I went back into two points. The wanna make sure we didn't gloss over first of all the silica dust, you mentioned that lodges in the lungs and can't be expelled is that why it's more dangerous because you can't once it's in your lungs. You can't cough it right back up, right? Coal dust alone. If you inhale particles have called destiny, you have enough time between shifts where you're not exposed your lungs can expel those particles, but silica is sharp. It's some people describe it as like inhaling glass, and so that lodges in the lungs, and it cannot be expelled and the other thing I want to get it is just kind of the basic storyline of this. It sounds like what you're saying. Is that as we began to run out of what these miners are saying is that as we began to run out of coal in easily accessible places a relatively easily accessible places they had to dig deeper the deeper different kinds of wells had more silica dust or deposits had more silica Dustin. And so it was it. That's kind of what led to them getting sicker. As they had to dig in different places to get coal. It's it's not that the deeper places or more difficult places to reach their actually quite easy to reach. It's it's that the coal seams are not massive anymore. They're not. Eleven feet or six feet of coal. They're much thinner as little as eight some minor. Minor told us they had an eighteen inch coal seam surrounded by six feet of rock and other minor told us that they were cutting eleven feet of rock with a little bit of coal in that. And what it is that is that the coal is still valuable. You can still sell it for power production or or steel production, which is really valuable coal for steel production. And so and the technology improved to the point that you could get through that rock as you're cutting the coal more quickly than you used to be able to do, and you could separate it from the coal before you you sold it. And so with improved technology, you could go into those seems that had a lot of rock in. And so that's what was happening before we bring in guest. Let me get to some of your comments Keith wrote on our Facebook page. I lived in West Virginia for years mining is a way of life generations. Look forward to working in the minds. It's awful how the miners have been treated by our government and mining companies Kathleen simply wrote breaking my heart and fill from Michigan emailed. I can't believe we're even talking about this mind condition in two thousand eighteen my goodness. The most advanced country on earth, and we're not mandating better technology to protect our coal miners. Allowing coal companies to monitor themselves is like letting the FOX guarding the hen house. Let's talk about how that monitoring worked with our next guest. Joining us from West Virginia. Davick, Makati was the assistant secretary at the mine safety and health administration from nineteen Ninety-three until two thousand davick. Welcome to one A. Thank you. To be with you. Now. First of all just be clear. What exactly is the mind safety health administration? Phil was concerned about coal companies monitoring themselves, but this is a federal agency that monitored coal companies, right? The federal government divides the workplace into two agencies one to cover OSHA that is a workplace generally in one specialized to cover mining because mining has historically been such a dangerous occupation that a special agency was set up in nineteen ten to begin to monitor the minds and then. Adapted the comprehensive law nineteen sixty nine. To try to control close to traffic control to safety. Generally. Let's talk about your time at the mind safety and health administration from the early nineties until two thousand we knew at that time that these toxic dusts were dangerous and deadly. Right. We sure did you we've been trying to we've been trying unsuccessfully to sadly to monitor and control coal dust, starting essentially in nineteen sixty nine nineteen seventy to lower the level of dust to two point zero milligrams per cubic meter that minors can be exposed to it anytime tragically that the law was not followed the intent of the law was not followed. And a system was set up that indeed allowed to mine. Operators to skirts this control and expose miners to a number of years now. The the rule in sixty nine did. In fact, bring down the level of dusted miners were exposed to. But it hadn't brought it down to the level. It needs to be and as was expressed by Howard burp Pissy silica increase in the levels of Barack being cut gave a secondary kind of problem with the courts in that in that the miners now exposed to both coal dust as well as rock headquarters test. So I'm the head of a mining company back back in your mind Safety Administration. Joshua Johnson energy, right? And I have a coal mine in West Virginia that I want to start mining and I come to you. I get all my papers in order. Give me a sense of some of the rules that you tell me I have to abide by with regards to how I treat my minors. The mine safety health is divided into very basic principles and. Cardinal principles have been around since the get go. You have to ventilate the mind that is to say you have to put fresh air in to take out the dangerous. Ignition sources and to put water into to damp down any choices that you see you have to provide the the Niners with rocks? We ways to control the roofs to the roof doesn't collapse on you. And in case of the health issues, you have to you have to control the dust levels. And you do that in a couple of different ways one is ventilating and the second is by adding a ground up, limestone, so rock Dustin keeps the coal dust tamp down, and it doesn't get into an explosive mixture so way, the limestone what is the limestone kind of bind to the dust in the air or something like that? Yeah. What does this? Do you grind the limestone? And and if you add limestone to the coal dust they bond and at sixty five point zero percent, then the coal dust becomes non explosive. But it also helps keep the coal dust down out of the air because the coal dust presents the risk when it's being cut. When you're being when you're cutting and and win in the air when you travel through it. So that's when the problem occurs, and you try to add water ventilation and in ruckus to try to control the coal dust. So David Makati your rules were being followed. Why did the rates of black lung disease? Go up. Well, I think a couple of things that have been mentioned before what is it? We we now are mining in areas where we're cutting more rock and rock is presents a higher risk. Secondly, we've increased the speed and power which we cut that is to save. Now, the machines are much more powerful, and they can cut up in a faster way, the coal is pulverized to a smaller level. So do you have the rock few has the coal being pulverized? And you have the movement is much faster. And you're moving the equipment is moving into the co at at much higher rate. We also cut. Exacerbated the problem by extending the hours of the working life for typically eight hour day came in the nineteen forties, and you work eight hours, and then you off. In order to expedite the production and coal we've extended those eight days to ten hour days and twelve day. So so as part of this that the mind companies were following the regulations, but maybe the regulations didn't keep up with the challenges of the times. So there were certainly some of that. And it was the regulations were not being followed on a regular basis by number of companies. Although some companies did indeed followed them the second is that the regulations didn't keep up with the times and the third is that in terms of the district relations. There were loopholes in the district relations that that you were so significant that the desk control was not meaningful that you didn't have to reach the two point zero milligrams. You average number of samples the samples could be way out of whack, and then you could take way above the two point zero level. And then you take one sample in a nonproductive time, and you every chose out. There were a number of ways to manipulate the sampling taking there were there was widespread cheating throughout the sixties and seventies and eighties. That. It also led to this resurgence of the of the productivity and see all these factors coming together. In in that, we think is reason why we've had this resurgence of black lung in this country. Over the years to try to control it our friends in Australia have basically eliminated black lung from their coal industry, albeit a smaller industry, but we haven't been able to do that. And it's tragic that kind of gets to what Mike here in DC wrote. Mike writes, newsflash these huge corporations care more about the bottom line than they do for the welfare of the employee's. We twenty years from now the regulations protecting clean water will have health effects on thousands.

"Five tommy tucker wwl talking about cameras la toya cantrell traffic cameras specifically both speed and red light mayor cantrell when she was a candidate said they gotta go it's a money grab then she realized how much they brought in or at least compared what it brought in some of the needs the city has in terms of budget and say hey let's study it and then the committee came out and said well phase them out keep them in school zones but she did they wanted to keep them in school zones all the time so that even if you sped say the speed limit is thirty five outside of school zone hours you would still get a ticket she's saying just keep them in school zones how do you feel about that have you ever gotten a ticket from cameron do you think it's a money grab or do you think it keeps people safer you're probably going to get mad at me here but i think it's probably both but i do know that it changed the way i drive in orleans parish because i know that i go over twenty miles an hour anywhere go because they don't want to get a ticket texts comes in very quickly i'll read it and then i'll get to the phone which i find kind of odd that this would become a partisan issue but i'll read the tax that says tommy the quicker you learn that it is always someone else's fault the sooner you realize how democrats think now it's the cameras fault for giving them a speeding ticket so does partisan politics have anything to do with traffic cameras at all shape hi you're on wwl good morning how are you good i'm saying that yeah probably you know bring some the city city some more money but doggone it here's afraid technology is our greatest detriment okay so yeah obviously they need more cops if they want to give people were tickets branson more money they need more top well lemme rely on lineages john in councilman jerusalem says that the police pd's looking at eight million dollar budget deficit so it's almost like a chicken and the egg thing do you leave the cameras to you can afford more cops and any get rid of the cameras now because the money never spend the money on what they're supposed to spend the money on you know be in that case hire more police officers they would probably just employed in another way like they always do so where's the money gonna come from well money's already they're you know they're getting taxes and everything now what they're spending the money on his the problem the money and the regulations on you know somebody overlooking how they're spending the money have you ever gotten a ticket from a camera or yeah i got a couple of them eating red lights what both i got a speeding ticket and over by the french quarter on that river road over there then you know got the i got the camp the red light tickets and lafayette were you speeding yes i was stating but i wasn't doing that much nobody around it wasn't a school zone was just on a on the river road they happen to have seven miles an hour over the speed but i'm just saying laser way to do it how much did it cost you no that was a long time ago i'm sure cost over one hundred you know right around the hundred or maybe a little over a hundred dollars i thank you you know i got one in gretna longtime ago and it was on west westbank expressway and i didn't know they had cameras there and i opened a take it up and i gripe to blue streak and i was angry and i thought it wasn't fair but then i try to be fair with myself and i try to be honest with myself and i said well you know yeah kinda worse speeding so i just shut up and paid the ticket so what do you think of this if you don't want to get a ticket for speeding don't speed and does it really make a difference if you're speeding through say i think wizner where they got cameras set up pretty often if you're speeding there does it really matter if it's a police officer the catches you that's running radar or a camera.
