We think we can see telltale signs that, that event wants to keep growing into a big one. The big sign they. I look for is how fast the shifts in those first ten to fifteen seconds, generally speaking, they found that the bigger the quake, the faster the earth moves by fifteen seconds. We can say no, this is a seven and a half. This looks more like an eight and a half. And then maybe by twenty seconds, we can say, no, no, no. This is not an eight and a house. This is really looking like nine and if a bigger quake is detected people further away from the epicenter can be warned ahead of the shaking reaching them.

It's something Victoria who comes to rate girl from the valley says she thinks about I caught up with her by the red carpet after the show, we have too many of the same stories was, you know, not to invalidate anyone's experiences, but new stories need to be she's just fourteen years old.

The bravery that a writer can have inputting some of those really raw emotions in a scene can be so rewarding to the people who are enjoying your material victorious has she was thrilled to get this kind of feedback on her first real script. Oh my goodness. Like, if you're telling me that this is good like, maybe I can actually like make something out of this. That is kind of the point says, right girls, founder and executive director. Karen taylor. They have a lot of potential if you work with them when they're young before they get that idea that it's on a table or they get doors closed on them. She says that's one of the reasons why they host this event with the academy in their building. You just get this feeling like you're part of this whole lineage of film writers.

I'm John horn have a great weekend. We're back here on Monday. I wonder why this moment shattered because these allegations against Michael Jackson have been floating around. Now for decades. I think because for a long time, Michael Jackson control this story. He had all the power. I'm Michael Barbaro. That's coming up on the deal from the New York Times. From ABC news. I'm Tammy Trujillo. With some of the stories we're following tonight past criminal records for millions of Californians from obtaining jobs housing or even volunteering at their kids. School capital? Public radio's Chris Nichols reports on a new effort at the state capital to automatically shield those records for some low level offenders Jay Jordan can't ever coach his son's little league team or chaperone a school field trip because of a robbery conviction from fourteen years ago, but he could find more job opportunities. If a vehicle theft charge is expunged from his record a Bill proposed this week would prevent employers and other private groups from viewing low level criminal records for millions of Californians after they serve local jail and probation sentences. Jordan now works for the criminal Justice reform group Californians for safety and Justice eight million of us with convictions. There's no end in sight here, California. Pushes out five hundred thousand new convictions a year. Right. So in the next ten years five more million people are going to be disenfranchised because of the conviction. The Bill would apply to those who are already eligible to petition a court to have their records. Hidden supporters say an automated process would save people time, and the cost of having to hire an attorney police would still be able to view a person's criminal record. But private groups such as background. Check companies would not in Sacramento. I'm Chris Nichols. The LA city council approved an ordinance today left. The city shut off utilities to unlicensed cannabis shops council member Monica Rodriguez proposed the idea she says it will help get rid of the hundreds of unlicensed stores, the LAPD says are operating in the city often times a lot of these illegal operators just rebound in pop back up the next day when they don't have electric service to actually be an operable business entity. It makes it far more. Difficult for them to just turn the lights back on tomorrow and continue to operate illegally. Then when a cannabis seller is confirmed as unlicensed law enforcement will work with the L A department of water and power to shut off their utilities, the ordinance still needs mayor Eric Garcetti signature after a thorough inspection look for vermin at L A's Civic Center. Health officials are back at city hall today with their report KPCC's Matt Noko tells us what they did and did not find after a deputy city. Attorney went public in January claiming she caught flea-born typhus in her office at city hall, east officials moved quickly they installed eighteen hundred flea traps. That's David PASCAL with L as general services department. When inspectors went back to check the traps, no fleas after we examine those eighteen hundred traps were found, but they did find some things in the traps, some occasional invaders such as millipedes that was inside the buildings when they went to look outside. We recognized immediately. That those rodents are living okay in the planters and living in the soil. This adjacent to the buildings in the Civic Center. That is the rodents are there outside city hall, but they aren't living in homeless encampments as was widely speculated a tight this outbreak in downtown. Los Angeles has brought national attention to the poor conditions for those living on the streets medical authorities described typhus as something like a bad flu that's rarely fatal if treated with antibiotics covering homelessness. I Matt Tanaka a surprise announcement that the Art Institute of California Hollywood is closing immediately. It's left students seeking answers KPCC's. Carla heavier dropped by a workshop or state officials briefed the students on their rights, dozens of students and alumni have come through here to meet with and listened to representatives from the office of student assistance and relief to really go over the options that are available to them. Those include the right to request a refund from the school. The right to request to have student loans discharged fares, this student tuition recovery that they have a right to request a reimbursement from and they also have the right to transfer to another school, but the the big takeaway through the one on ones and through the presentation and the materials handed out here is that students first and foremost need to make sure that they can gather all of their academic and financial records. They're able to fill out the applications for this assistance. That's KPCC's Carla havi air reporting. Well, this is the weekend. When we set the clocks ahead, and our means you'll lose an hour of sleep tomorrow night. But you can also look at it this way, we'll be gaining an hour of sunlight each day. Officially the time..

"Dreamed in blonde by end every session with the conversation with the audience one of his favorite visits to the city of Madera in the central valley. Had the best question, you know, the whole tour asked by a farmer. He said I've never been to a poetry reading before. And I didn't think I'd like it. But I really like it. And then the farmer asked can someone out much education right poetry, first of all, that's such a brilliant and important question. And I would never get asked that question at Berkeley or Stanford or Cornell. Julia says he wouldn't get a question like that at Stanford. I know he means it because he attended Stanford his bachelor's and an MBA from there. He also has a master's in comparative literature from Harvard and even now he teaches at USC. So he's got some pretty stitches credentials, but this question of who can write poetry still really resonates with him. I want to understand why. But I have to get past the sound bites poet laureate of California is the greatest honor I've had in my life. And the reason is is that poetry is my art in California is my home. Then it all starts to make sense Joya wasn't always prestigious poet at least not one for a living for time. He was a business executive rumor has it. He played some role in the creation of the jello, jiggle or when he takes me on the winding road that led him to be California's chief poet leads back to his mother working class Mexican woman not of audit of education, but who loved poetry. She shared her favorites with him he sixty-seven now, but he still remembers them touched by sadness by loss by death by what might have been favorites was Anna belly by at grabbing poet, it was many many year ago. Ago akin to buy the see the made in their live to you may know by the name of that ability spend, a lot of our time together like this joyous sharing relevant stands up from one of the hundreds of poems. He's committed to memory or a relevant memory from one of the hundreds of road trips. He's taken across a bit. If we could stop here, we would actually see dolphins breaking the waves. I've done that a couple of times in the past at some point again to wonder how does he normally pass the time cutting into his planning hate to say this on the radio, but I almost never play on what I'm going to read until I see the audience because each time he wants to recite poetry that's relevant to them by the ballad about his dark family history or some humor. Can we close? Now, we don't miss Wrexham tried to turn on my GPS facilitate. Turn right onto street to do things without without Surrey. All right. Got you get closer to Santa Barbara Joey gets closer to finishing his project in his time as laureate. I asked how he thinks. He did you mostly fail you speak to a hundred high school kids ninety of them. You know may not care. And that's okay. That's okay. If you can reach one or two kids that is a huge victory. We get to our destination in park the car was right here at this point. I have to admit something, I don't know much about poetry to be honest, but like many in his audiences the farmer like Dane is mom like Dana himself. I do have this poem that meant a lot to me when I was growing up. Maybe he's heard of it. It was something about like you shall love your neighbor with your crooked heart still show of the crooked neighbor with your crooked heart. It's a vine. From one of my favorite poems as I walked out one evening, and I think for America right now, that's something essential for us to remember that we must've one another, you know, if we don't approach the other with a gesture of equality and love and respect will create a kind of fatal culture, I think him for that reminder.

"Bass. Ana says she admires Spalding for her musicianship and control of a band. But they have something else in common too. They're both female musicians in what's often considered a male dominated jazz world. It's hard to find industry-wide stats on this, but at Berkeley college of music of the hundred, five jazz composition majors less than twenty five percent or women. And when I visited crossroads top jazzman on was the only female musician in the room even at NYU jazz. Just four of the twenty two students chosen are young women. This year. I've usually been the only girl in many unsolvable 's jaaz vary like male dominated field to on a thinks that starting to change even at her college, the chair of jazz studies says there are more than twice as many female students in the department as compared to two decades ago, especially I think in terms of light jazz education, there's a lot more emphasis on like trying to get girls into jazz on early age, her high school jazz teacher, Evan Avery says, it's her talent and her drive that made her a strong candidate for the Carnegie Hall program. She's fierce in her determination to get the music, right. And. And also she consistently supports others in what they're trying to do artistically on has ambitious goals for her time at NYU jazz, like getting more comfortable improvising at jam sessions that she says, can be really intimidating. Given her classical music background. Sometimes you don't know the tunes, you're kind of learning on the fly. So I think just a lot of these jam session experiences really helped me. And I think it's going to prepare me for college and like what's to come. Her mom says that something she's noticed since on may the switch to jazz. I admire so much the the ability to improvise I, I can't imagine. I think that's the top on a says. She's looking forward to the program and not just because she'll be spending it studying what she loves music. Not only are you like pursuing music at a really high level, but you're also living alone for five weeks. So I think that's going to be just nice to kind of gain more independence. You're going to be doing jazz. You're going to be on the road a lot. So I think it's gonna be good in a good experience for her to see what that entails and what it's like to move around. From one city to another in how you have to take care of yourself. Sometimes Ana in her mom think the experience will prepare her for college and for what she wants to do afterwards. I really wanna be eventually be like how my own band be a bandleader play. My own compositions also, hopefully play with like some my heroes who are now living in New York, but before all that on a boon to low and the young musicians of n. y. oh, jazz will play Carnegie Hall on July twenty.
