"Mortgage. I'm Christopher Cruise in Washington modest changes ahead for the nation's gun laws. The U.S. Senate votes on a bipartisan gun control bill. The yeas are 65, the nays are 33, the motion to concur with an amendment is agreed to. And the measure heads to the house for a vote on what would be lawmakers most far reaching response in decades to the nation's run of deadly mass shootings. The bill would, among other things, toughen background checks for the youngest gun buyers and help states put in place red flag laws. Jennifer Kuiper CBS News. The Supreme Court's ruling striking down a New York law that limited concealed carry limits is getting a big thumbs up from gun groups. New York State rifle and pistol association president Tom king says he's tired the same hackneyed responses from gun control advocates after the ruling. There's going to be blood in the streets. There's going to be gunfights all over. And it just does it. It just does not happen. King tells CBS News the bottom line is upholding the Second Amendment for anyone to have the right to carry a gun in public places, CBS Peter king, a 12 story condo building in surfside Florida collapsed one year ago. On the day before the sad anniversary, Miami dade circuit judge Michael hansman gave final approval to a $1 billion settlement. I could not be more proud to unhesitatingly approve this settlement as being fair adequate and reasonable. And in fact, being remarkable. The U.S. is sending $450 million more in military aid to Ukraine, including some additional medium range rocket systems and Ukraine has taken an important first step toward membership in the European Union, more on that from reporter Terry Schultz in Brussels. European Commission president Ursula von der leyen called the decision a good move for both the EU and the country's themselves. There can be no better sign of hope for the citizens of Ukraine Moldova and Georgia in these troubled times. It's still likely to be many years before they become full members. In Afghanistan, the Taliban is now asking for international help after a catastrophic earthquake this week killed more than a thousand people, more from CBS Charlie dagda.

"Our votes babbling blade trying to survive economically hoping that these big infrastructure and other policies that will affect not only our lives but the lives of all generations to come will pass. And this fucking random like nah. Nah you know what it'd be like. What the hell is that like. I think that's the reaction to most people when they find out that this individual exists. No there's gotta be a bunch of people like clutching. They're just like. Oh my god. Not the parliamentarian wh-when harris overrules. Of course you got. Or as trent lott did as you mentioned in two thousand one she can be fired. I mean really if trump did one thing this is not a good thing you know. Trump fired everybody for all sorts of reasons. It was like a spinal tap drummer kind of in administration and you know a lot of people were fired for unjust reasons like say alexander. Van mint Because he told the truth under oath which is something. The trump administration didn't like. But you know we. Now have a precedent of all sorts of folks. Just get in fired willy. Nilly without any kind of real repercussions there's an actual reason to fire The senate parliamentarian and that's to protect the american public so they should do it and it shouldn't be that hard without question. I one thing i'll say. Is that the senate. Parliamentarian is propping up this whole system of white supremacy that is destroying our country from within a- and that's why we were such a ripe target and in many ways for the mass murdering xenophobic terrorist regime putin's russia where immigrants are harassed and viral youtube videos. That's the thing there. And and a nationalist march founded by putin turned into a neo nazi march. That's why these conservatives and these democrats in name only are stalling any progress that would putin prove in trump prove our democracy because they benefit from this system. They are existential making their wealth and they've new escape plan after that 'cause all their estate plans are just fallacies dump fantasies that do not stand up to reality and so if you look at the moderates for instance the ones who are going to be vulnerable in the dark money campaign of the midterms. They loved the parliamentarian. They're hiding behind her. They don't want to have their names associated with any type of immigration reform specially when fox news. It's exploiting all those images of the haitians on our border and so forth and not only that they hide behind the gloss of good governance and bipartisanship when really the bipartisanship of so many of these democrats name only moderates so-called mater so called moderates is the bipartisanship that they do greatly contribute to is taking from the same trough as the republican colleagues. They're all dependent on the same major. Corporate donors cape corporate donors that are fine to fund politicians. That are driving the unconstitutional and dangerous. Antiabortion law in texas corporations that are funding the violent insurrectionist that drove the mob attack on our democracy and january. Six you have these so called moderate democrats democrats in name only daigneault's who are taking the corporate coffers and so they're happy hiding behind the parliamentarians so called rulings which are not rulings recommendations. Because then they don't have to disappoint their corporate donors. They don't have to be make themselves vulnerable to dark money adds going into the midterms and so forth. So the senate room terry and is very much doing favors to the traders on both sides of the aisle in the us senate exactly. And i just wanna sort of emphasized the zena phobic aspect of this because as you said you know images of the thousands of haitian refugees. Who arrived on the border in del. Rio are all over the place being exploited a by right wing bigots and there's some confusion as to why there there's i just wanted to just i mean this situation in the images that are coming out of there in the stories that were here. He out of there are absolutely horrifying. And if you were horrified rightly so by the plight of people in afghanistan whose lives were ruined in part because of our wars there you should feel equal empathy in equal upset at what is happening to haitians at the border. And what has been happening to haitians. I mean quite honestly since the founding of colonialists hiti which one of the few successful overthrows of that rule but especially since two thousand ten when they had a catastrophic earthquake That you know had aftershocks both environmental and political a good source. I think on kind of breaking down is jonathan katz Who studies haiti Has a free newsletter. In explains that the haitians who have showed up in del rio were part of a wave of patients who moved to brazil from his newsletter in search of jobs and housing in the years after the catastrophic twenty ten earthquake the jobs turned out to be fewer and poor paying the it hoped. Some fled the rising xenophobia. Stoked by brazil's neo-fascist president airballs denaro to chile then the pandemic came the dangerous crew and opportunities Became more scarce so then. He goes on to describe their journey through south america to colombia to panama throughout salvador under guatemala and then finally to mexico and finally to the border of the united states. And you know anybody who has been a refugee or worked with refugees or just has common sense knows that you do not make this journey lightly. This is a terrifying atrocious way to live and the were at the border are there with their families there with their children and the reason that they were being attacked by Border control on horses holding rains that they were using as whips Was because they were crossing back into mexico back and forth in search of food in search of medicine in search of the most basic supplies needed to survive and for the biden administration to treat them the way they're treating them but also just engage in this rhetoric like. Yeah we're just going to deport them. That's that with no introspection about our own governments role in facilitating this conflict. And how treated haiti but that aside just the basic laws of asylum the basic laws of human rights and what this country is supposed to represent..

"Horrible state. That hades the now tracy i. I think that's a good place to leave it for me unless you have anything further that works for me. Yeah i think you both laid it out the issue on wonderfully so. Thank you so much for coming on pots and walking us through how Two hundred bureau debt could still be relevant to today. Thanks for having us. Thank you so much. Thank you that really appreciate it. So joe. this is as you can probably tell a topic that i find endlessly fascinating partly because i think it says something wider about financial debt and. I don't think we think about this often enough. But debt is almost exclusively about morality and fairness in the sense that in order for to exist. Someone has to borrow and another person has to lend and someone ends up owing someone something so yeah and so there are so many judgments and norms that. Go into how. That story is told of who owes what to whom and why. And i don't think we step back and sort of consider those norms enough and the judgements. That are shaping how debt actually functions in how we think about it. Yeah you know the other thing. I completely agree. You know the other thing. that's interesting. is you know. Finance in general is like a kind of I i sometimes think finances a time machine because you're essentially you You know you can. You can have cash right now that would otherwise say like if you borrow money you can have cash right now. That would otherwise take several years worth of work. So you know you're sort transferring. Its transferring a value transferring of money across time and ugo and me to discuss. This is like. I said an extremely long version of that. And so you know it's one thing it's like we could all wrap our heads very concretely. House say debt that was taken out ten years ago may affect today. But there's no particular reason to think that a debt that's two hundred years old that people have forgotten about the people around the world don't even know about or had never thought about before might still be Relevant today it into kind of an extreme outlier but fundamentally is you say it's all part of the same question. But i guess that's what makes this particular case Extremely interesting and edme you to point it out. Sort of like worth holding into two odious debt literature. Totally and the other thing that i was thinking. And we've been talking a lot about this On all bots for the past year now but whether or not the extraordinary circumstances of twenty twenty and twenty twenty. One spark a wider reckoning on some of these complicated issues and i think we've spoken about attitudes towards debt shifting in the context of modern monetary theory and m. t. And i do wonder if given the terrible humanitarian situation unfolding. In haiti you have obeyed. You have the president getting assassinated. Now you have another catastrophic earthquake. I do wonder if If you could see a big shift in in the narrative around something like colonial era debt well this interesting because me to made this point that even prior. So you know it's like okay. Why is this an important thing to classify as odious debt. And as he put it out. Yes there is the legal dimension. But there's also the activists dimensioned there's the ngo dimension there's to kill the debt movement and.

"I want to thank you so much for talking with us and thank you for making news of the world which I enjoyed so much. Paul Greengrass. It's really been a pleasure. Thanks a lot. Paul Greengrass directed the new film News of the World, starring Tom Hanks. It's currently playing in theaters and is available on premium video on demand. We recorded our interview January 12th. Nadia Oh Soo is a Whiting award winning writer and urban planner. Her new memoir, Aftershocks delves deep into the fault lines of her own racial identity and family story. Book critic Maureen Corrigan has this review. When Nadia a wuss, who was seven years old and living in Rome, with her father, stepmother, younger sister and baby half brother. Two events occurred on the same day that up ended her world. The first was a disaster. She didn't experience personally but heard about on the radio. Ah, catastrophic earthquake in Armenia where her mother's family had lived before they sought refuge in America. The second was the sudden appearance of her mother, standing nervously at the front door, gripping a pair of red balloons in her hands. A wuss who hadn't seen her mother for three years. But now there, she Woz along with her silence. Second husband They've been vacationing in Italy. Her mother whisk Nadia and her sister off for a day of fun before she vanished again. As happens, especially in the minds of Children, those two events became sod erred together in memory. Here's how was who puts it in her new memoir. When I was seven, my mother showed up with an earthquake and red balloons. I remember her shaking hands and I remember the shaking earth. In me private and seismic tremors cannot be separated. Ah wusses, lyrical and tough memoir is called aftershocks. And though it first it may seem like an overly dramatic conceit for a wuss. Ooh, to tell the story of her life in terms of tremors, seismic shock waves and fault lines, Those metaphors quickly come to seem apt. Even restrained. A rooster's memoir is a classic search for identity story, one. That's complicated by the fact that the ground beneath a wusses feet is so unstable. A wuss is out of the picture. Mother is white and Armenian American. Her beloved father is black from Ghana. His work with the United Nations gave Nadia and her siblings a cosmopolitan upbringing. Italy, England, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda. But no fix sense of home. Being bi racial intensified a wusses apartness. And then there are the abandonments that fractured a wuss is life one I've mentioned already. Her mother's unexplained departure when Nadia was four. That's followed by the death of her father when she's 13 and almost simultaneously the refusal of her mother to take in her and her sister. Instead a wuss who lived tempestuous Lee with her stepmother until she left for college in New York, where not surprisingly, in her late twenties, she experienced a breakdown. A wuss who devotes a portion of this memoir to surveying the ruptured histories of the many countries she's connected to. But it's her striking personal story and charged language that makes aftershocks compelling. Speaking of her father's death, a wuss who comes to realize that grief is slow, internal bleeding. Reflecting on the stories she'd heard about the opposition of her father's family and Ghana to his marriage to her white mother. Ah, Woo suk passes on this critical folk adage. Any river loses its identity when entering the sea. Feeling her breakdown approaching a looser, describe stumbling out of the speeding purgatory of her subway train running into her apartment and spending seven mostly sleepless days, rocking in a ratty blue chair. She picked up off the street. There. She forces herself to confront questions about my up ended dislocated body and mind about the geography and geology of my experience about who I Woz and how I'd ended up in the blue chair about finding my way out of it. Aftershocks, A wuss whose father had told her on the day of the Armenian earthquake are the Earth's delayed reaction to stress. Wusses breakdown is one kind of aftershock. This well wrought, often powerful memoir is another. Maureen Corrigan teaches literature at Georgetown University. She reviewed aftershocks by Nadia, who sue Coming up some facts and myths about exercise. We talk with Harvard Professor Daniel Lieberman, author of the new book Exercised, Why Something We never evolved to do is healthy and rewarding. I'm Terry Gross. And this is fresh air. Weekend.

"Sage Larry Elder tailored it down. Riverside put a perspective on something I was thinking about the policeman that Apparently killed that guy by kneeling on his neck. Here's a way to ask the question. How many police officers have ever killed anybody by kneeling on their neck? Statistically, it's so small it it almost doesn't register on the radar. But it seems like more and more, whether its guns or the police or the board patrol. If there is one slight excess, which is what fallible human being have.
