"From ABC News. This is perspective this week stories, and why they matter I'm Cheri Preston. Coming up teachers wondering why they're being told they must return to the classroom have heard from many older teachers that they have spent the summer organizing their wills, and that should not be something that we would have to think of as back to School Chore Black Mother Speak Out on their unimaginable law set was one of the most. heartbreaking. Dates that I've ever had and threats to ban TIKTOK leave creators wondering. Are we really being spied on I laugh because of course talks in a shutdown, because right now that we actually got established on. That's just shutdown. All ahead on perspective. The United States set more records during the pandemic again this week. Seventy thousand corona virus cases in one day month of July now with the most new coronavirus infections than any month since the pandemic began, and there are still two weeks ago. I see you. Beds in Florida are filling up leading Miami Dr Lilian. Abo- to declare Miami's now the epicenter of the candidate where we were standing done six months ago months. Now we are their relatives once again, not able to be with their loved ones as they died of covid nineteen complications. Taylor is respiratory therapist who hosted video chat for the family of a man who died will never forget the crying and screaming from the other side of that video chat. I want that family member. Those family members to know that I sat with him, and I held his hand until he passed to that he was not alone. It's taking weeks in certain cases to get test results back, and the continued debate over wearing masks is heating up along with the weather, some big companies, Walmart target and CVS. You will have to wear a mask if you WANNA shop there, but some governors like Georgia's Brian Camp are explicitly banning cities and counties from ordering both to mask up in public nano that many well intentioned and well informed. On a mass mandate. While, we all agree that wearing a mask is effective. I'm confident that Georgia's donate a mandate to do the right thing. He chalance bottoms is the mayor of Atlanta the city of Atlanta's still has the appropriate standing to mandate math Kemp said he was looking out for business owners and added that Georgia is actually going to court against his states. Biggest city filed a lawsuit against the city of Atlanta. On behalf of business owners, their employees and hardworking Georgia's throughout the region. Continue to struggle to make ends meet. Of course we all know that the most well known person in the country who refused to wear a mask in public until last weekend is president, trump and a new ABC News Washington Post poll show. Sixty four percent of Americans are questioning the president's credibility on covert nineteen with nearly as many sixty percent disapproving of his handling. Handling of the pandemic, but how much of that has to do with the feud between the White House and the nation's top infectious disease expert? Dr Anthony Voucher. Dr vouches a nice man, but he's made a lot of mistakes this week. Top White House aide. Peter Navarro wrote a scathing op Ed of Dr Fao g, the longtime head of the National Institute of. Of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, questioning whether the American public should even be listening to his advice. When it comes to covid nineteen, I can't explain Peter Navarro. He's in a world himself so I don't even want to go there. At first. The White House handed out of things that said Dr Fao. She was wrong about then tried to distance itself from Navarro's op Ed. Ed If you talk to reasonable people in the White House. They realize that was a major mistake on their part, because it doesn't do anything, but reflect poorly on that president, trump even criticized Navarro for representing himself in USA Today, but the president himself has openly said he doesn't always agree with Dr Fao cheap particularly when it comes to reopening, the economy is. Actually because. To me, it's not an acceptable answer and recently shared a disparaging tweet of him misconstruing months old comment he had made. So, what's going on ABC News White House correspondent Karen Travers deals with these stories and deals with these people every day, and she joins us now. Let's go ahead and start off with an ABC News Washington Post Poll Yeah share these poll numbers have been very consistent across polls for the last couple of weeks now. This from ABC News in The Washington Post has the president's approval on the coronavirus pandemic at just thirty eight percent. That's down from forty six percent in late May. He's losing support among independents. He's even losing some support among Republicans and that's a big trouble spot for them, but the credibility challenge I think is also really important as you mentioned just thirty four percent of Americans say they have a great deal or good amount of trust in what he's saying about. The virus and two thirds say they don't trust him that much or at all and remember what happened this week. The White House launched this kind of verts out. Out in the open campaign of criticism against Dr, Anthony Fauci the nation's top infectious disease expert. Somebody that polls continue to show Americans really have a lot of strong trust and faith in the White House started criticizing him this week bobbies, but they say we're his misstatements on the virus, and they faced a lot of backlash for that so I think it is striking now to see this. You know you're going to criticize Dr Fallacy. And you look at this data. People are not buying. The president is selling on this pandemic. Yeah, tell me a little bit more about that decision. Who came up with that political idea? Let's. Discredit the guy who everyone trusts and who has been giving us accurate information for the past four or five months. Yeah, and has filed. She put it this week. Big Mistake. You know that this was going to reflect worse on that person than it did on him. You know he feels. He came out of this. Just fine and Dr Fauci says enough is enough. Stop focusing on nonsense and focus on controlling the virus earlier. Earlier this week. We obtain this list that the White House had put together of. You're kind of a hit list of things that they say that foul. She set wrong or that he revised his positions on. There was a lot of Cherry picking here. They were quotes that were not full. There were quotes that were from February early, March early on in the pandemic, as information was still very much in the beginning phases. Then you had this all blow out into the open with an op-ed in the USA Today by the President's top trade adviser Peter Navarro. He basically took that list. Maybe into a little op ED published, did and everybody went crazy at the White House. Everybody was disavowing it saying that that was just his thinking. It wasn't the White House thinking. The president didn't agree with that and we were also told that he didn't go through the normal approval. Approval process so Peter Navarro went rogue cherry. The point of his bed was essentially what the White House had been shopping around to reporters earlier in the week he just decided to put it in Ed Format and publish it. You know not to mention if you or I did something in an op Ed like that? Without the approval of ABC News? We'd probably get in just a little bit of trouble. I asked the chief of staff that on. On Air Force One on Wednesday. Is this a fireable offense? He says he's not gonNA. Talk about personnel matters I said well. We find out soon if there was any disciplinary action and he said he wouldn't get into that so i. sit in the lesson there is you're gonNA. Get some criticism. Take some heat, but you're going to stay in your job. Okay, so let's look at where we are right now with the discussion on masks. Why did? Did, they get to this point. How did it get to this point in the debate over it and people saying it's their rights and they don't want to do this I mean it's it's been proven that it stops the spread of coronavirus not to get into any of the you know the about the medical issues or anything like that, but it became political, and now it's it's. It's just a mess. Yeah, and it became political because the president. President made it political. You know early on in this. The guidance from the administration was a bit muddled. The surgeon general had tweeted. Don't buy masks because they were worried about shortages that the people who needed the most medical professionals were going to be able to have them Dr Chee. Even echoed that in the early stages of the pandemic that guidance changed and about one hundred days ago. The CDC was encouraging Americans to wear masks well one very influential. Influential person does not wear a mask, and that's president trump and he has said even this week that there's a time and place for it. He did wear one last weekend at Walter. Reed Military Hospital, because he said the hospital is an appropriate setting. You should wear a mask there and it was notable than we were expecting like. Could there be this big sea change where he wears a mask on Saturday and then suddenly more people say they'll. They'll do it this week. Our colleague will speak in his covered the campaign for over a year. It's talked to thousands of trump's supporters. When back to somebody, he spoke to in April. who swore she would never wear a mask? She doesn't agree with it. She thinks it's a personal choice. Once the president were one jerry she said, will now this signals. It's getting serious and she was going to wear it, but that was it for the president. President we did not see him wearing one this week. When I traveled with him on Wednesday to Atlanta all of the graders at the tarmac, greeting Air Force. One everybody was wearing a mask, the governor his wife members of Congress. The president came down the steps. He was not wearing one okay. ABC's Karen. Travers thank you for everything you do with the White House in Washington. US appreciate it have a great week. Thanks have a great, week. We learn more troubling health news on the pandemic front this week. The age of those hospitalized with covert nineteen complications is going down. Younger people are getting sick actor. Richard Besser as president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson, foundation a pediatrician and the former ABC news chief medical correspondent. We need to remember the children can get this infection to most of them will do well. That's not true for every child, and that leads us to. To the discussion of schools. Is there any way to safely in the fall? Children need to be in school. They need to be learning, but it has to be done safely, not just for the children where most of them will do well, but teachers and staff have to be safe. We opening schools amid pandemic isn't up to scientists or the Education Secretary or even the president that decision falls upon states and cities within that nineteen. Is Virus that continues to run rampant in our city. Some like Los Angeles and Houston have ruled that kids won't return in the fall due to the risks both to students, teachers and their families I want the economy to remain open like all of you, but it is. Important that we deal with this virus today. Others like Miami I still trying to figure out what to do. I am meeting with members of our business community. To talk to them about the possibility. Of A future lockdown, ABC's Brad milkey spoke to a fourth grade teacher Meghan Hanrahan on our daily podcast. Start here this week about a school board meeting in Orlando. She recently took part in. She and other parents are concerned. It's too late to even consider sending students back to school this fall or you getting a sense from parents what they WanNa do there are some families that do want to send their children to school? But I think as the numbers are growing in Florida. I think they are more likely to. Air, on the side of caution and keep them home, there are so many teachers on the call that had such moving passionate stories about the health of themselves. Family members children they know, and cannot bear the idea of those things. Alone at a hospital juggling to brief nobody to hold their hand can I says basic question because on the surface school feels like a long way away, right? It's July. The middle of the summer. A lock happened with a virus. I'm saying why is now the moment that everyone is taking this so seriously is because the politicians are weighing in or what students and orange. County would be starting. August tenth the teachers. Teachers go back July thirty first so from my perspective, this is late. We are too late. Even asking any of these questions, things should have been decided long ago to give teachers, parents, Families Administration plenty of time to actually try and find solutions to all of these problems are the concerns more about the kids and the virus, or like the adults around the kids, because proponents for opening schools have said listen kids. Generally do not suffer as many health risks from covid as older people. We're not positive even about how much they infect other people, so the thinking has been. If anything REOPENS SHOULD BE SCHOOLS. I'm sure you're thinking like we'll. Teachers can get it right from my perspective. Any any model that has any bit of face to face time is a danger. The web of students who live with grandparents who lived with parents who travel between divorced parents who have a custody between grandparents and other parents. Me Visiting my own parents. It's just not worth it, are you? Hearing from older teachers who are just like I'm not going back to work? Like? What do you do? Yes, I've heard from many older teachers that they have spent the summer organizing their wills. Conversations with five children about power attorney, making a will because I feel like I need to have all my ducks in a row, and and that should not be something that we would have to think of as a back to School Chore Got Been Doing This for a long time and I. Just can't imagine what we're in this position previously when you would try and get a substitute, it was difficult. We would have to look in advance. There's not a substitute I know and I know many. Who are willing to step into a classroom of an actual teacher? Because that is the reason they need to substitute I'm very fearful that this means that we're primed for another tragedy like Parkland. I'm a graduate of stolen Douglas, down and Parkland. When we have lockdown drills, we have to have twenty five kids in a bathroom huddled together. How are we going to do that? Being any feet apart, it's not possible when we have tornado drills, and these are things that we have to have monthly. You need to be huddled next to each other shoulder to shoulder head down. How are we going to do? Do that we're not at that. A student having to deal with losing a classmate over the teacher losing a family member to cove it, we've already been asked as a teacher to basically jump in front of bullets in the case of an activist sealant I'm also going to take on the responsibility of protecting the health of your kid by doing this as well. The thought of going back to school triggers a hundred other thoughts that there are no solutions to or you elko asking us to carry around an oxygen tank for the rest of our lives I've had students and I have taught no. I've only ever taught regular. Ed Students Spit in my face. Throw things at me. Literally Stab each other with no consequence, and you're GonNa, tell me if a kid refuses to wear his mask. I can send him home. Why because his parents never picked him up for the other reasons? Why would they pick them up for this if we were given the time to say? For example, push back the start date for students till the end of August that gives us three weeks for parents to contact their employer's. Tell them what they're dealing with. There's no way in my viewpoint that that opening schools. At all an option. Fourth Grade Right in the thick of all these issues Megan Hanrahan in Orlando, Florida thanks for being so generous with your time and walking us through the concerns here, thank you Brad. California Governor Gavin Newsom. This week ordered all counties in the state to close bars, indoor business operations, movie, theaters, hair, salons, and gyms as cases of covid nineteen continue to climb over nineteen is not going away anytime soon. Until there is a vaccine. And or ineffective therapy southern California has seen a big surge Los, Angeles and San Diego School district's both announced they would start the coming school year online. ABC correspondent Alex Stone. Lives in southern California his two young children. Aubrey and Jackson were ready to go back to school in the fall, but their district is still deciding what to do, but it appears it probably won't be happening. That meant a family discussion. Here's Alex and alley along with rising second grader Jackson and rising kindergartner Aubrey. Read our kitchen table Aubrey say hi. Jackson say hi. Mommy say hi. Known as Allie and we're going into another school year where it looks like that, there's a very good chance that at least at the beginning of the school year. They're not going to be going back how you feel about an alley. I feel a little bit sad for them, but I know that. They're excited. I think to the at home. To you've done all of the schooling I work from home, and but I'm in my office with the door closed and you new at all, or are you hanging in? Okay? You know in the screen when we weren't prepared for it then. It kind of took it and ran with it, and we just had Jackson, and now we'll be doing distance learning for me too, because she'll be in kindergarten, Aubrey, what do you think about going into kindergarten? But it may be here at home where you don't get to go to class. So. It's. Kinda Sad. Kinda make miss my friends. What do you think about using the computer at home? That's going to be. On. A Computer Yeah Jackson. What do you think I feel like that? You probably don't want to go back to school in a way, you WanNa be around your friends to. Yes, I'm very excited but I'm kind of scared I. I have a solution to that by doing play dates. Yeah, we do some zoom play dates where we set up the computer so that I can play Legos together virtually and then We've done some bike. Play dates, so there's some natural distance and the kids get exercise and get out and get to see their friends. which has been really nice, but I think the challenge will be in the new school year starting. COMING UP WITH LIKE A. A. A long solution for the social aspect if we're at home and not saying our friends at school. Now at least you're in California L.. said they're not going to be having in school classes. A lot of other schools are doing the same Barbara's shutting down. Gyms are shutting down. I mean. How do you feel going back into this kind of here? We go again I. Think we are really hopeful at the beginning of the summer that. The kids will get to go back to school and so now the reality thinking in I think we're just focusing on how we can make the best of this year and setting up workspace since both of them will be doing. Online learning if we're at home, so. That, they have space to do their work and and then try and come up with a balance since they won't be. Seeing their friends in person at school. Anyway, we'll see how long we're doing this and I mean assuming that we are since our school district. We're still waiting, but we're only a few weeks away now from the beginning of school, and they're kind of putting it off as long as they can try to figure out what they're GONNA do we're not there yet anyway?

Content creators are reacting to a possible ban on the popular social media APP Tiktok the owned by a Chinese company and there's been talk for years that the US might ban the APP due to security concerns, ABC News producer Mike, Dubovsky takes a closer look at the future of Tiktok in the US. If you're under a certain age, or maybe if you have kids under a certain age, there's a good chance you've heard of TIKTOK. It's a place for mostly young people to show off their dancing skills. Singing and songwriting. Comedy stylings. What is a snail's favourite Julie Andrews movie the sound of Mucus and whatever this is. One of the scariest things of my life, and I went inside of giant water balloon in shorts as and Gadgets Christabel puts it where jenny hangs out the video APP where users post short clips, sometimes accompanied by music is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance in recent weeks by tenses, relationship with the Chinese government has caused many in the online security world to raise their eyebrows. Sern that. The parent company by dances, close ties the Chinese government, so the fact that this the US version the APP. Possibly exposing. Users information to that company. That there's sex concern that like who knows what they'll do with it earlier this month, India. Banned the APP. Following a deadly border dispute with China meanwhile US Secretary of State Mike. pompeo is indicating now that the trump administration is considering a similar move. We are now evaluating each instance where we believe that us. Citizens data that they have on their phones in their system or in their healthcare records. We WanNa make sure that the Chinese. Communist Party doesn't have a way to easily access that. We were to go the route of say India and the completely. disappeared. I become nonfunctional. That'd be let remastered ramifications for. Talk it's a company and also you know all the users who depend on this APP and the news of potential US Tiktok. Band didn't escape creators on the platform. To get. Home. Morgan across started posting on Tiktok in May of twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred under the name Morgan drinks coffee. She mostly post videos about her experiences working at a coffee shop outside Portland Oregon. Morning everyone's I was making my shift drink and I decided to take you with me the first. has nearly four million followers, and she says she's had a positive experience so far I've really really enjoyed it It's my first time kind of building a platform for myself. That's turned into something that's led to me being kind of a micro public figure in that sense that growth I heard of the news of a potential ban on Tiktok have that initial reaction of kind of fear and frustration you know. Know as a Creator Nigel. Braun Tiktok Creator said all he could do was laugh at the news. I laugh because it's like Oh. Of course. TIKTOK GONNA shut down because right now that we actually got established on it. That's one just all get shutdown. Braun alongside his brother, and a mutual friend runs a tick tock account that focuses on science. This is some cromwell chloride that had made about a year ago. AGO and one of my favorite chemicals. I'm not sure why, but have always been a big fan of dark liquids that led off scary. Looking fumes when there's a whole Ron and his team who go by Nile Red on. TIKTOK began making videos on Youtube in two thousand team. They only started posting on Tiktok at beginning of this year, but have since accumulated nearly three million followers. They operate out of Canada. Canada but bronze says most of his viewers are American a few months ago. TIKTOK even offered to partner with them as part of a science initiative on the platform, as for the news of a potential ban on Tiktok in the US. Bronze said he'd be sad to see the APP. Go. It's unfortunate because I was happy with how what we were doing. Some creators meanwhile were skeptical from the outset so my. My first thought was. It's definitely not going to happen as it does. It's not going to be overnight. It'll take several weeks. That's Sally Dr Griffin, who mainly posts comedy videos to her. Half a million followers on the APP one time it went to the movies with the boy, and he did not hold my hand the entire time, but when the the ended. He just patted me on the back and it. It keeps me up at night. But at the same time she did encourage her followers on Tiktok to check her out on other APPS. It's important to diversify your platforms incentives, your youtube or your twitter your instagram. Just you can kind of cover all your bases at growth agrees saying the news around Tiktok in recent weeks should be used as an opportunity for creators to expand their reach I think right now. Now, the realization that tiktok is a little bit in jeopardy I. Think it's a big wakeup call for creators who haven't necessarily like diversified their platform usage to be like. Hey, I need to get all these people who are interested in me and interested in following my life onto these other platforms, and I think right now. We're seeing kind of scramble. The like push people off of tiktok onset. You know instagram. Instagram facebook twitter youtube, some of the other main ones. Some of those platforms are working on services of their own that mirror tiktok format instagram for instance announced it would be bringing an APP called reels to India. In the wake of Tiktok band, their youtube meanwhile is reportedly working on a competitor called shots. Here's Bron again. It's not like those people just disappear like I could just start watching it on. Whatever other company comes up with the replacement whether it's Youtube Instagram, whatever and I'm sure huge their base that Tiktok had would just shift over recently. TIKTOK experienced a glitch that caused the amount of likes on a certain video to disappear. tiktok largely downplayed the issue, saying caused by higher traffic than normal on certain servers, but that didn't stop some Tiktok users from thinking? The glitch was related to reason events. All of a sudden, my comments section was flooded with. This is the end goodbye. We'll miss you and it was one of those words like no one's going anywhere. It's not like we creators like cease to exist reporting for perspective. I'm like diversity ABC News. On the facebook page for the TV show, mythbusters, there's a simple sentence alongside several clips of the show. It says to the man who truly made science fun. It's a tribute to longtime host grant Imahara who died this week of a sudden brain aneurysm. At just age forty nine, he became popular for his talented electronics, and at his joy for blowing things up. Well, we're about to do. We're GONNA. Do for fun. Using some of the sound from that facebook post, we asked ABC News Entertainment Producer Steve Early. nope admitted he was devastated by the news. The tell us more about why. He and others cared so much about grant Imahara. It's just a tremendous loss. I mean grant was a giant in the community which I consider myself a part of I mean he was a fans fan. He was a Geek Geek and proud of it. Everybody is watching you all the time. Their cameras all over I. Remember what you said there is no dignity and television. Once you once you. that it gets a lot more fun. He started working even before mythbusters. He worked for George Lucas Industrial Light Magic and worked on a ton of different movies. most notably. He's actually the guy who put all the electronics back in our two d. two and got him on his feet for episode one and to be modernized electronics and modernized. But. He also worked on movies like Terminator Three and Galaxy Quest. He was just a brilliant inventor. We've made a career out of making what seems impossible possible and aside from that I. mean he was just a fan, you know he always had time for you at a convention to go up and talk to you.

Full Episode: Friday, November 1, 2019

"From ABC News this is perspective closer. Look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed. I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up up. The impeachment inquiry heats up with vote in the house. When will the public hearings begin? I doubt anybody in. This place comes to Congress to impeach the president of the United States buyers rage across California. Why do they seem to be getting worse every year? We're going to stay here as long as we can. As soon as we see flames I have the car ready to go and the leader of Isis is dead. Nicest prisoner warns that won't stop the attack. What difference will it make? That Baghdad is dead they know maybe we'll become worse worse worse. This Day will not stop all had on perspective active. The impeachment inquiry moves into the next phase after vote in the House of Representatives on Thursday. I doubt anybody body in this place or anybody that you know comes to Congress to take. The Oath of office comes to Congress to impeach each the president of the United States. Republicans are calling it a vote for impeachment and they're angry about the process that's taken place so far. Democrats say this vote vote uphold the constitution. So what's next. Let's turn to. ABC News White House correspondent Karen Travers. She talked with Michelle. Franson this week about all of it. Karen give us an update on what what this all means with the impeachment. Vote and where we go from here. Yeah that's the big question. What is that next phase going to look like and the Democrats in the house have been promising a a public phase for the impeachment inquiry because so far everything has been happening behind closed doors? They're bringing up current and former administration officials to talk about the president's phone call with the president of Ukraine and also brought her administration policy when it came to that country and US military aid. Now this vote is the mechanism that sets the process. Forward to the next step and Democrats are promising open hearings that means people are gonNA come up. They're going to be on camera a lot of tough questions but you can imagine a bit of political showmanship as well from both sides. We're also being told that they will release transcripts of the depositions that have taken place so far are so essentially Americans are now going to get to see what these officials have been saying the big thing for Republicans right now. Michelle is that they've been Criticizing complaining about the process for weeks now saying that this is secretive shady. And it's unfair. Well now it's all GonNa be out in the open soon Which means they're going to have to answer questions about the president's action and the president's words and Karen? What was unfair about the process from what I understand? At least Democrats say that they were using procedures procedures that have been used in the past and actually designed by Republicans when they had the majority. Yeah I mean when you actually ask officials here at the White House and talk to people on Capitol it'll hill. What is unfair? Well they get into very small minute show about process and and who can talk to which witness and how many people in the things like that which which frankly. I don't think matter more broadly to Americans out there But the important thing to remember is Republicans have been a part of this process. It's not like it's just Democrats in these secret rooms. Only the they're the only ones asking these officials questions. Republicans are a part of it. The members of these committees that have been involved in this the White House would like the president to have a chance to have his lawyers in the room present for this to be able to question lawyers from their perspective. We'll see how that plays out then over the next few weeks. I'm getting in a sense though from talking to anchors. ABC News Radio Stations. That folks are Ansi. They want this to move along quickly. They've been hearing the same arguments from both sides ads for the last couple of weeks and now they want to be able to judge this for themselves. It's November that means people start paying attention to their own holiday plans end of year things things I think the House Democrats have to get this moving before people start to get frustrated and perhaps tune out and since Democrats did take that vote that do govern what rules taking effect and the the timing and who gets to sit in win and also due process are Republicans now satisfied with that moving forward. You know they're still going to say that they haven't liked the process but we don't know what the next stage is going to look like yet. What does it though in? Some ways is a deflection because Republicans will say it is is not easy right now to defend the president on the merits of this. They've certainly have said that to us behind the scenes that their best bet right now is to criticize the rules not to defend defend. The president's actions are words President Trump's getting frustrated by that too he. He said this week that they needed to start talking about the substance and and really bring when this all to a close you did not see a lot of Republicans allies of the president leap to that and take him up on it. ABC News White House correspondent Karen Travers wrapping up what has been the has storage week in Washington. DC and the nation. Thank you thank you. Wildfires drought parts of California once again forcing thousands to evacuate Kuwait their homes the biggest blaze into noma county north of San Francisco but one of the most dramatic scenes was in Simi Valley. Very close to the Ronald Reagan National Library. ABC's Matt Gutman was on the front line. brushfire inventory county exploded going from sparks to over eight thousand acres in about six hours the so-called Maria fire threatening nearly two thousand structures as racist uphills it's speed prompting officials to call for the mandatory evacuation action of over seventy five hundred people in the middle of the night. We're going to stay here as long as we can. As soon as we see flames I have the car. Ready to go. First responders and homeowners taking to the rooftops to fight the fire trying to beat back walls of flame the last gasps of Extreme Santa Ana wind event this week again. Ben glades there have been more than ten fires in southern California just this week than he'd you could and we witnessed firsthand firsthand. How quick fires like these can gain ground? It's come down this now just a matter of seconds. Wow intensity that is absolutely enormously. Heat is overwhelming planes dropping. Fire retardant to try to stop the progress. It's still raining. Boss Jack. Getting splatter right now with supercharging charging fires sending them racing right past firefighters. The concern is that these winds will continue to burn all this stuff is just kindling for fires like like this. We expect this to stop anytime soon. ABC's Jason Nathanson. It's been covering the Los Angeles Fires Jason Every year. These fires seem to get worse. Why is that breath? There's been a lot of them. That's for sure. And it seems like this whole state is on fire and I understand that that might be the perception but in terms of this is is an acreage and destruction. These fires have actually been not as bad as we've seen in the past five years or so. The biggest fire the KINCAID fire. That's burning in northern California ed over seventy thousand acres. That's definitely big. You know one of the biggest in the past ten years for sure but the others that got a lot of attention. The Getty fire here in Los a Angeles was relatively small definitely very sad for the people involved but in terms of sheer numbers. That's a small fire the fire in Seamy valley which broke out on Wednesday sixteen hundred acres only one home thankfully destroyed so again relatively small. So there's a lot of fires but they're not as destructive as they have in the last couple of years. Why do these fires keep happening? You mentioned the last couple of years. Why are they a re occurring with the intensity that they have been well? That's a good question and it depends depends on who you talk to. Some people will say it's climate change. Some people will say it's the power companies. Some people say that we're living in areas that we just human shouldn't be living in and really it's a combination of all of those of those destructive fires which I've talked about by the way seven of the top ten. Most destructive fires in California history happened in the last five years. A lot of people would say that that has to do with climate change because that's the most significant thing that's changed in that time over the last hundred years or so so you have conditions are just right for the fire you have high heat. You have a lack of water throughout the year which creates a lot of brushing than a a lot of this stuff can burn but then also you know you talk to a lot of people and when you drive around these areas a lot of people are just upset about the fact that people live in these areas because they they shouldn't be living in these areas these are areas that are prone to fire. There's always been fires in California in these areas for hundreds and thousands of years. These fires are always is going to happen but right now you have more and more people living in these areas. So that's why these fires are more and more destructive okay let's talk about your utility out there. PG and E.. Such a huge mess. They're just now turning off the power for everybody when these winds pick up They have been responsible for sparking a couple of spy fires because of their equipment and other things. What's up with the utility company? Why is it such a mess? That is a very complicated question PG and E. is an investor owned utility not a public utility here in California one of three power companies that are investor owned so they and they are mostly in northern California. And so what. They've decided to do after this last last several years of fires for which they've been blamed and they have liabilities something like thirty billion dollars that they because of those fires they decided. Well you know what we don't want to risk it at this point so it's safer and probably cheaper for us to just turn off the power when these conditions are ripe for fire. So that's what they've been doing and that comes with. Its own set of complications because people are very upset. They've been without power in some cases for days or weeks they feel they can't get notifications. It complicates the firefighting process. Because it's tough for when there's no power it's tough to notify people and get in those areas in some cases so it's really a complicated situation and the governor here Gavin. NEWSOM is not happy with the way P gene is been handling the shut offs. And he's not happy with the utility in general some people say PG disputes this but that the company has been poorly managed mismanage. And they've they haven't done the proper for brush clearance. They haven't done the proper maintenance to the lines. And that's what's caused these fires. Thanks Jason All right coming up a warning from an isis prisoner. UK remains the EU. For now I'll tell you what it means on perspective after this. These days news news comes out of Washington so fast it can be hard to keep up. I just don't think this is going to play out the way everybody thinks it's GonNa play out we're getting a Giancarlo prediction. Look we need special music for this. I'm ABC News Political Director recline. Kline join me along with. ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl every week as we break down the facts and turn to Washington insiders. Tough questions on the powerhouse politics podcasts. Are you talk to me. I'm looking forward to listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. Welcome back to perspective. I'm I'm Cheri Preston. Last week we learned about the death of Abu Bakar Albuque- dotty the self proclaimed leader of Isis is dead but is really a safer place according into one former Isis member the answer is no. ABC News Senior. Foreign correspondent Ian Panel sat down this week to talk with Mohammed Qazi. He is a prisoner and Islamic state fighter fighter and he also says even though al-Baghdadi is dead more attacks would likely becoming. What did you do in his State? My job was I was it was a police officer. was there working for the police in the slum state in Russia. You don't regular police officer I. It's not like a police officer officer you're GONNA see in New York or London. You're very different kind of police officer. It's really quite the same thing and see what's going on. It's really quite the same. Except you're working for a group the beheads people. It doesn't like the stones women who are accused of adultery the sets fire to its enemies that puts them in cages and put them under water and films at the beheads journalists. So it's not really liping regular policemen. Yeah but this is what they do is not my. I'll just catching people. Criminals put them to jail and making my my around around the city. So you're obviously where when you joined the Islamic state who its leader is yeah. When did you find out that he'd been killed? When I found out it was? He was killed shoe days ago. What was your reaction? I don't really care because this people don't also don't care mcdaddy kill another one will pop off. So what difference will it make. Now that he's dead. Do you think no difference. No it was. Maybe we'll become worse worse worse. I don't know it was going to become worse. This Day will not stop not stop president trump. Other people say this is the end. The Caliphate doesn't exist anymore does it doesn't matter now but the people exist people there. We said the people you mean. People established people the people that bombed herself and all these things people are any safer now. Baghdad he's dead now I think now maybe in Europe Europe something. That's going to happen because many people may be upset about this but like I said how many bug that is grow another one pops up. Do you regret what you have done. Yes but I didn't do nothing wrong. I just joined Isis Isis. This is right by I was I was just a normal police officer doing my job. What they told me to do? Driving in car arresting people would have done criminal inch. And do you not see that if you're part of an organization is guilty of crimes against humanity status but this is not my thing. This is not my few you I just did. My work was a police officer and I did. Don't have nothing to do with these teams. And so that's why I don't care. What would you say? So the parents of Kayla Mueller Stephen Salt off of James Foley of all the other foreigners who were beheaded holy innocent Iraqis and Syrians who killed to the family of the Jordanian pilot. who was burned to life to the people who were killed in battle clan cloud people killed in San Bernardino? What do you say to them why he would say about? The people got killed in this slum state children the people what would you say you have no words for them. This is not my. I didn't write their destiny. This is their destiny. This is not my thing. I didn't do this. Crimes Bureau passes the same group. Doesn't matter you know nobody everybody's sticking the same anyway coming up a little later in the show we'll tell you how one of the most famous members of that raid on albig. DOTTY was trained right. Now we're GONNA switch the fight over in Britain or they're looking at another election. Wait a minute wasn't Boris Johnson. Just picked as the prime minister was but he's called for another vote and once again brexit is at the heart of it. What what a mess? ABC's Tom Rivers. Is At the foreign desk in London. Tom As big a mess as Brexit is and. I know we've been talking about this for a while. Let's look forward when we're talking about the the snap election okay. So you're going to elect a new prime minister possibly possibly and that's that's the the underlying theme here because The polarization in this country and the normal break between say the Conservatives and labour just sort of like the Republicans and the Democrats both parties have internal divisions leave and remain. So it's much more complicated and yes. The numbers are certainly going to change on the back of the of the election in but they may not change significantly to then give saying that conservatives a large majority to to get this brexit plan land through or by the older other alternative the Labor Party so it could be again a quote unquote hung. Parliament will have to wait and see but it's going to be a fascinating thing. I didn't campaign the first one in the Christmas season since nineteen twenty-three so when you're talking about looking forward to a snap election you're talking about the entire government redoing everything over again. What makes them think that it's going to be able to solve the problems this time? As opposed to all the other times in the past. Yeah well because we've gone down this road three and a half years down down the road and so many dead ends really that we've got to the point where maybe just maybe reshuffling the The the MP's in parliament can actually change the dynamics and get brexit sorted out a compromise signed up to where they can then move onto things like cutting trade deals with one hundred eighty six other countries around the world. We're not there yet but boy everybody thought that this would be tough but not this tough. Everybody thought that maybe maybe maybe Briggs it'll be solved in a year or two. It's been twice that long and guess what we're still at an impasse is whatever happens in Brexit. Now now will the politician who is the prime minister. Be Seen as the architect of this deal or we'll be looking back at Theresa May and then Boris Johnson and everybody else who worked on it and in the past will they be seen as a hero of this or the goat of this. I will play out. Yeah probably the goat. Certainly Theresa May really was Was Not a good captain of not. Boris Johnson you know he's still got this. This agreement in principle which in its second reading and parliament actually was signed lined up to buy the politicians it was not amended yet. It was not up for examination debate. So in essence. Yeah he got. He got further. Further than Theresa May so if in fact he wins he can pull it off the shelf and say okay now you can tweak it. We can have some some debates bates. We can have some amendments. We can find a compromise that we can get through this parliament because already the European Union says. Look if you can sign off on it. We're happy with it. So he will be he'll be seen as somewhat of a hero if in fact he can he can get his numbers up and change the the numbers in parliament so that he can force missing through and then move on to the future talking about trade deals etc.. Okay so Tom. This is two thousand nineteen. How can this affect me? Let's say if I were to look a year into the future future and I'm an American citizen and I want to travel to Great Britain. I WANNA visit London. How will this affect me a year from now is it? Can you tell at this point. You can't really tell too much other than the fact that if you're an American tourist right now is a good time in fact the last couple of years of in good time to come over SIMP- simply because the dollar so strong against the pound a year down the road if the country gets its act together the obviously the pound is going to be strengthening if we're still in limbo land which I can't imagine agenda but if we are the go go down even further but I tell you I think we're kind of at the basement right now and again. If this thing really cannot happy. Signed up to there's going to be some some S- massive massive economic problems here above the scale we saw in two thousand eight certainly and things will be affected. Certainly a recession would certainly impact this country very very severely so we are looking at a Christmas time election. Thank you Tom. Thank you share.

I'm I'm Cheri Preston coming up the hero from the raid on the leader of Isis I the NC double A. announced this week that within the next couple of years it it will begin allowing student athletes to make money off their image or likeness. Move Coming after California's governor signed a bill that in college athletes make money from endorsements. So what does it mean. Here's ABC's Brad Milkey ABC legal analyst Ryan Smith the NC Double A.. Has a pretty simple rule about student athletes making money. They don't they can't so all of a sudden the NC two A. had decide. Do we tell California schools like they're not part of our group anymore like March madness but no California teams will mistakes started already getting even higher. Mr Seen Governor on Santa's downsizing he is supporting a plan by Florida lawmakers to allow college athletes to make money on a Georgia lawmaker. Says he wants college. The athletes should be able to make money off their name. Likeness and image in other warned more state started proposing their own laws. New York and South Carolina are considering their own measures. Potential lawsuits have been percolating the NCAA had a meeting. And it's leaders approved a landmark rule star athletes. They say can now potentially be paid like star Athletes Ryan Ryan Smith host. ESPN's outside the lines. He's an ABC news legal analyst and so Ryan. What is this new rule here? Can you break it down for me. Sure the first thing to remember about all this is this is not something that says the schools are paying the athletes. That's a crucial distinction. We don't want to turn our out through athletes into employees. What this is is the NCAA saying you're allowed to go? Higher agents to get endorsement deals if people WANNA use your name and likeness or your image on certain certain products or something like that. You can hire an agent and do that now previously if you did that you lose your eligibility now. You won't but Ryan do we know what shape that would take though because at one point they say yes they can use their name image likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model. So what does that mean. So when we talk about practically how how this announcement would seem to work. You can think of two words Actually Two names Zion Williamson biggest collegiate basketball player Aaron years last year. He could have made millions in endorsement dollars but couldn't because rules. Now let's say Kellogg's wants to put on the front of a cereal box. Let's say a sneaker company wants to sign him to all that kind of stuff could happen. He could iron agent and he wouldn't be declared ineligible now. The devil is in the details. We're we're unique we recruit. We don't draft so there's a lot of different things that we have to be sensitive to but how these rules be constructed. The rules will tell everything everything and that will be long after this first starts coming into effect down the road for years. Ten years like how this would affect college sports down the line I mean. Does it affect pro sports down the line if they decide to go with the the essence of this as the California law and others did. I think you'll see a number of athletes making multimillion dollars in college. And and I think you'll also see a number of athletes not making nearly as much but making enough to pay tuition or have some money on the side and I think that's part of why this legislation is here. Is it really fair in this day and age to not change with the times lines and allow athletes. Some of whom can't even pay for a meal. Do all the stuff for the school and not make any money off of it. The on campus the celebrity these student athletes used to be. They're going to be rich one day. Okay well now you can imagine that the students will be rich walking around campus and they got athletes who more and more see themselves like many corporations that could begin younger and younger essentially Applied Smith. Thanks so much shorter. California Congressman Congress when Katie Hill has now resigned stepped down amid controversy over an alleged sexual relationship with one of her staffers and the release of some very compromising `promising photos highlighting the lack of broad nonconsensual porn laws in the US ABC's. Ju Chang has more on the story this coordinated campaign campaign carried out by the right wing media and Republican opponents enabling and perpetuating. My husband's abuse by providing him a platform is disgusting and unforgivable typical and they will be held accountable California Representative Katie Hill. A rising star in the Democratic Party now tarnished resigning in the face of what hill calls a campaign of revenge porn. I made this decision so that my supporters my family my staff in our community will no longer be subjected to the pain inflicted by my abusive. Has Been and the brutality of hateful political operatives intimate photo showing hill with female campaign staffer were published on the daily male and the conservative blog. Red State alleging that hill her husband. Kenny Heslop and the staffer were involved. As through all the photos were published amidst divorce proceedings seatings between hill and her estranged husband red state also alleged. That hill had been involved in a second extramarital affair with her current legislative director which would violate violated house ethics rules. He'll has denied those allegations hills. Ousting serves as a major blow to our party. A first term Democrat hill was a member of the big six six six the most promising new freshmen in Congress openly bisexual congresswoman garnered the support of her constituents and celebrities alike but her once promising career now derailed amidst a failing marriage and the LURID accusations. I never claimed to be perfect. Perfect but I never thought my imperfections would be weaponized in us to try to destroy me and the community. I've loved for my entire life. Her long sought after California district hadn't elected a Democrat to Congress and more than thirty years. Now it's time to get back to work because you see what's happening in Washington before. She defeated incumbent. Steve Knight Hills Defenders Vendors claim. There is a sexist double standard pointing out that Republican. Congressman Duncan Hunter who has been indicted for misusing campaign funds to support extramarital affairs with five. Women has so far refused to step down. Hunter said in a statement to the associated. Press that the indictment was politically motivated at the beginning. It remains means politically motivated. Now I will not allow myself to be a distraction from the constitutional crisis. We're faced with and the critical work of my colleagues. And so I have to take my personal fight outside the halls of Congress. He'll says as an ex congressman. She's dedicating herself to fighting revenge. Porn on behalf of countless others it remains unclear as to who leaked the photos to the media hills husband's attorney did not respond to requests for comment. Some people call this electronic assault digital it'll exploitation others call it revenge porn as the victim of it. I call it one of the worst things that we can do to our sisters our daughters because she lost her career whereas a congresswoman had to resign based on his images she has a case against whoever actually shared these images with the press attorney. Daniels ochowicz specializes in revenge. Inge porn cases. Give me a sense of how explosively revenge porn cases are growing. When I first started five years ago we would get one telephone call every three months now? We got a telephone call a day. There's unfortunately epidemic of revenge porn cases now and more often than not these victims are women they are Zakho. It says he's tracked down offenders vendors from all walks of life. We've caught police officers. We've caught members of the armed forces. We've caught members of their low cuny churches so this is a crime and that everyday people are the criminals but he says a national law would help revenge porn survivors who often face an uphill legal battle in part because laws against it vary dramatically from state to state. The promise of this area of law is so new and statutes really haven't been flushed out the way they should so congresswoman hills California which has a very strong revenge porn statute going into Washington. DC where she was. There's also very strong revenge porn statute but unfortunately a lot oughta states are not as strong as those two states hill is far from the only alleged victim of revenge porn in recent years the digital smears and trapping celebrities and everyday citizens citizens alike. Nearly ten million Americans about one in twenty five have been threatened or have been the victim of revenge port for Congresswoman Hill. Will Her future remains to be seen. I grew up riding horses and the most important thing that I learned. was that when you fall off. You have to get right back in the saddle so I'm going to do that. I hope I can count on you to do the same and join me on the next ride coming up hitting the refresh button. Microsoft CEO describes. What's ahead for the company and the future of on perspective after this? Hey I'm Dan Harris from ABC News. And I have a podcast and you should listen to. It's called ten percent happier. It's all about how to stay sane in our increasingly insane world. We talked to everybody from the Dalai Lama. Signs Video Board Fortune to Rupaul. You have to explore this life. It's fun and interesting. May Even Change Your Life. You can listen to it for free on apple podcasts or on your favorite podcast APP. Welcome back active perspective. I'm Cheri Preston. Two years after writing his book hit refresh. Microsoft CEO sucked and Adela is hitting refresh adding to the book. Talking about everything thing from the culture change at one of the most valuable companies on earth to the future of artificial intelligence he sat down with. ABC News Writer Rob Holly and NABC producer. Mike Dubovsky in the book. You talk a lot about artificial intelligence along with machine learning and with quantum computing. You talk about it also in the afterward afterward you say that needs to be both good and responsible and through that Lens I WanNa talk to you about Jedi. This is the contract that Microsoft has one from the Pentagon for a new cloud network. How will the AI? Being developed at Microsoft be used in this system and will it be used in the Warfighting Warfighting Sphere first of all the fundamental thing. Here is that we have said we make sure that technology is available to all institutions that lean on democracy have elected to protect the freedoms we enjoy. And so it's really That's the principle behind US bidding. One jet I so therefore we want to stay focused on the corporate ebeling. Our partners our customers achieving leaving Dan mission and the same is true even for the Department of Defense in the United States the theme of leading through and with empathy runs through the book and through the new afterward and this part of the culture change that you say in the afterward. That's never finished. Where are you in that process? And how satisfied are you with it. Sure I just said it's never finished. You know he has the reason why I emphasize the word but I liked that aspiration because if you think about even that is the source of innovation in any company come from it comes because we are all in pursuit of trying to meet the unmet. Unoccupied heated need divall of our customers. And if that's the goal then you do have to someone who is trying to invent something new to have that innate sense of empathy for what those needs all of it means you gotta go beyond even the words and not I think to me is what people talk about in reference as design thinking and so I do believe that we did see. Is that the source of all innovation and invention and it comes through once who lives experience. It's not like I can get to work and say let me turn on my empathy button because I need to meet customers on. Met On articulated needs I think the more we are in touch with our own experience and then express it in business listened in In innovation I think will produce things that are more useful in the work site. This is Mike Hopping on now. I WanNa talk about another technology that you've spoken a lot about Particularly in the book and that's cloud technology and I want to look at it kind of through the Lens of Minecraft Earth the release of that game just around the corner And it is to me one of the more unexpected applications of kind of cloud technology. So talk to me a little bit. About how Microsoft arrived at that place you know first of all. We're so excited about the launch of minecraft up. We're very excited about it. I'm also excited about what minecraft is done for. Example do interviews young girls in middle schools into stem education. It's one of the things that I think needs to be talked about more. Is it's a game people you play and enjoy. But it's also a great eighty instrument of learning and especially for girls because it's an open world They can get into stem on their own terms. And that's exciting waiting to see us into a new dimension. The fact that now you can play minecraft in the real world and you can mine And the club place huge element because the entire way of these spatial anchors get created. Somebody creates a world In fact that gets the same Chili anchored in the cloud. So that the next person who walks into that role that they created Can Be found. And so it's very exciting to see the coming together of Microsoft's cloud Bravo's along with a gaming work to create. What I think is a breakthrough game and experience NBA excited to launch it? Next week I do have one one more question for you. It has to do with the search engine being and how it occupies a very interesting role in the tech landscape right now. I'm thinking back to the last democratic debate. I present candidate entrepreneur. Andrew Yang had that one zinger. Nobody Bing's anything. He went on to apologize. And in your book you have a section on being that I thought was really interesting and how it served not only as a search engine but kind of as a testbed for other technologies so talking a little bit about how being kind of operates as proving ground concept for other technologies. Yeah I mean for us Being by itself is a very important thing and you know I think anyone who sort of cheering cheering for some more competition. Cheer for us to sort of compete and and differentiated so Because that's essentially what we're trying to do is to make sure that these digital chiwetel habits people don't develop by default don't become monopolies and the innovation there which is all around applied machine learning at scale obviously a huge droll. And you'll see us even next week. Talk about how for example. We're bringing that search provice to the information inside the organization so Microsoft Search Is I think. A revolutionary product is part of Microsoft Anti Virus Information. If I WANNA know what. My Company's policy is They would be some documents somewhere somewhere. Why can't I search for just like searched the web and that's the type of capability now provide anybody who is the Microsoft six five subscriber and it's fantastic to see that and it's a lot about how to do machine learning at scale and I'll go of course it's taking die to change? We have and making available for every organization out there to be able to do their own Amihai projects at successfully at what we're doing with Microsoft three six five coming up with Chiro from the raid on the leader of Isis.

President trump discusses the trade war and russia. The g seven summit is a proud person. Would i invite item. I would certainly invite him whether or not he could come psychologically. I think that's a tough new from to do. Officials warned about the potentially deadly dangerous of beeping. I was pretty shocks to find out that this activity that's promoted as safer literally almost killed and we'll talk about aging with the creator of sex in the city house. This is the way that works and jobs aren't permanent the fifties or even the sixty can be a time when you you have to reinvent your life all ahead on prospective trump returned from the g. seven summit this week after discussing the china trade war and welcoming russian vladimir putin back to the meeting of world leaders. He's a proud person. Would i invite him. I would certainly invite him whether or not he he could come psychologically. I think that's a tough thing to do. The president also did not choose to discuss climate change during a meeting at the g. seven all this is former defense secretary. Jim manages warning bitter political divisions posing a greater threat to american society in foreign adversaries and we've got a hurricane looming. Let's break down the week in d._c. Here's a._b._c. news political director recline rick. It seems like the g seven summit was ages ago. It was only this week when president trump came back but it was what what do you think of the g seven summit. How how did how did al shakeout to you well. I think it was president trump arguing with the world but also arguing with himself and at the end of the day the world recognizing that you don't have to argue with the president if you can move maneuver around him i was struck by how many times he was on the sidelines literally not even going to a climate meeting but also just the gist of the the world community was that you can work without the president of the united states and it it may be a bit of a turning point where the world community rather other than trying to convince the president of things or <hes> or or try to bully him in recognize that they won't change his mind is just trying to to find avenues around him and that maybe you don't use the united states at the table for everything that happens on the world stage. That's fascinating to me because i mean come on. We're the united states of america america hate to say you know we're the biggest and the best but come on i mean we we were so integral for so many years and now you're saying world. Leaders are saying now okay. Hi we're going to go ahead and meet on our own in these things could be cyclical and it could it could get very much go back on the other direction but <hes> i feel like there was a lot less worrying among other world powers what the united states thinks that this what the president thinks that this i think they recognize. He's going to say a lot of things. He's going to have a lot of gloucester. He's going to contradict himself. He's going to negotiate in bazaar ways sometimes but you can't try to influence it so much as you can just find avenues around it so the climate change discussion. He was not a part of <hes> what what about boris johnson and his role and his relationship with president trump the new prime minister of great britain with the the e._u. Pull out looming on on halloween october thirty first but as a twist list because he has been president trump something of a kindred spirit <hes> they are peas in a pod and can do so on the world stage so the united states in great britain work together. I think there's a lot of domestic politics that have to play out for prime minister johnson before he can turn to some of these matters of world affairs but i there is there's a possibility of some teamwork going on there and i think the the recognition that the same kind of forces that propelled president trump to office or the or the forces behind brexit and the the forces behind boris johnson and those are forces that frankly even other world leaders that don't have that at the top right now have to contend with an have to worry about there are trump like in boris johnson like figures in places like france and germany and and they recognize that those are those are looming threats to the current leadership structure former defense secretary james mattis is that with a new book and <hes> from the brief experts that we've seen i mean talking a lot about tribalisation and polarization things that we've heard before is they're going to break any new ground. In this gimenez book. Look i think the former in the trump era or have a hard time breaking through because the president does make so much noise and <hes> we almost queue up the president attacking james madison jason insulting him now the guy that he loves mad dog and really boosted early on <hes> i would foresee that playing out in the not so distant future and from there. It's it's hard to see what happens next because he doesn't have that perch but there isn't accumulated. Wait to a lot of these things and mattis. <hes> pointedly is not going after trump personally. He says that he's he is uh-huh giving some space he may not do that. Forever but mattis is still a soldier and doesn't want to be seen as just attacking the commander in chief. Okay we got a hurricane looming and and <hes> mar-a-lago right and it cites the white house response so far to what's happening in florida and to what happened in puerto rico. What'd you think of that well. He this war with the mayor of san juan is it's not a new one and he's gonna continue continuing one and i think it's <hes> we'll we'll see if it changes his response. He's decided to to not go to poland away without he'll wait it out and his it is all up in new jersey rather than in florida okay and finally the democratic debate a._b._c. september twelfth. We're going to have one debate <hes> with ten candidates on stage and on a two night debate because not enough people made that cut what are we going to see when we narrow it down to these ten contenders all the major contenders on one stage for the first time one night. I only <hes> and i think you see some matchups. Joe biden and elizabeth warren haven't been on the same stage neither of warren and kamala harris and it's up to the candidates to decide but it will be a narrower stage for the first first time when a._b._c. has that debate september twelfth. Okay a._b._c.'s reclined political director. Thank you much picture this week. Alleged victims delivered powerful testimony in the the case of jeffrey epstein. Women who have accused epstein of sexual abuse spoke out in court demanding justice even after his death a._b._c. chief national affairs correspondent correspondent. Tom llamas has the details nearly two dozen of jeffrey epstein's accusers packing a manhattan courtroom their message clear he may be dead but their quest asper justice is still alive. It was both empowering and infuriating to know that the person who i needed to hear those words is not here to hear them. Sean davies described in chilling detail being raped by jeffrey epstein on his private island in the caribbean makes me sick to my stomach that there's perpetrators out there that obviously helped him in many ways but in court prosecutors vowing to pursue any co conspirators one name brought up multiple accusers british socialite and epstein st associate key lane maxwell who has denied all wrongdoing. We need to get to the bottom of everybody who is involved with that. Starting with galen maxwell virginia roberts roberts goof races maxwell recruited her to be a teenage sex slave to epstein. She is also claimed epstein ordered her to have sex with some of his powerful friends. Including prince andrew something the prince has denied prince andrew releasing a statement admitting his friendship with epstein but saying in part at no stage during the limited time i spent spent with him. Did i see witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction outside of court who fray firing back. He knows exactly what he's done and i hope he comes clean about it. A landmark ruling the case linked to america's opioid epidemic. A a judge in oklahoma is ordering johnson and johnson to pay five hundred and seventy two million dollars. The state's attorney general says thousands of people have died from opioid wade overdoses a._b._c.'s stevenson. Saami has more the nation's drug makers on alert.

Many of them say they're more afraid now than they ever have been. Losing the family business and some of them mm-hmm are reaching out for help in fact a new stressed hotline has been set up specifically for farmers and those in rural areas.

Thomas otten is the assistant vice president of the company and says in the calls they've received so far probably about half of our calls have been from the farmer themselves and half of our calls have been from loved ones <hes> a spouse or a child who is very concerned about their mother or father dealing with financial struggles. This is nothing new in the agriculture industry. Although it's been a bigger challenge in recent years will roger is with the american farm. Bureau federation not use a cliche a perfect perfect storm of factors. We've got depressed. Commodity prices that oftentimes are below production costs. We've got tariff difficulties. Yes with you know the the ongoing trade war and we have just generally awful weather. We've had terrible weather this year. <hes> that's kept many many farmers from planting and while the impact of of these factors varies by commodity in various by farmer. We still see that you know farm income ms down sharply over the last six years really we're. We're going back to levels of a decade or more in terms of farm. Income right now are pulling says <hes> something like acute. Thirds of farmers say that fear of losing the farm is a stress stress or <hes> amongst them and their compatriots not that they necessarily personally. We feel that that's going to happen but the idea that the far might have to be sold is certainly something that weighs on them the p._f.

Those numbers went down slightly among farmers. You know if you look at rural roll america. You've got fewer healthcare facilities. Your mental health care facilities.

The lungs of the world are inflames inflames. We've seen it in recent weeks. Buyers engulfing the amazon rainforest an area about two thirds the size of the continental u._s. and containing the flames is proving to be a herculean task putting a major source of the world's oxygen under extreme stress. A._b._c.'s matt gut mun is in brazil with more firefighters. No match proclaims this ferocious in this intense that fire ninety palm trees here on the living brazilian border order fueled by wind flames leaping cross the dry brush. It's shocking how fast we've seen. This fire markets group about two hundred yards in the past five minutes alone. You'll you buy this wind going to try to get a little bit faster to get out of. Its way keep going geronimo. Rancher here tells me a tanker dropped water on the fire wired nearby. It's no use he says it's all going to be gone gone. There's nothing else to do it just as a cloud of smoke result behind behind his farm we from the rhine out but he insists on staying certain is cattle will command we escape kate justice jeronimus farm and rode our fire and smoke that entire for reward just minutes ago. It seems to be gone. It's just one apocalyptic scene. Amidst a swarm of fires ravaging brazil and it's amazon rainforest first spilling out to bolivia paraguay and peru the collection of tens of thousands of blazes engulfing area two thirds the size of the continental the united states virus burning from the equivalent of detroit to los angeles rainforests verdict trees lush landscapes biosphere spirit teeming with life so called the lungs of the earth much now showed inflames. Most of the fires are so remote it requires hacking king through nearly impenetrable terrain just to reach them. Containing flyers is a rookie leeann apper. Even the best equipped countries the ground. We see how ill-prepared brazil is for the task. A squad of just thirty firefighters are tasked with covering area twice the size of new jersey toes. They have a pretty rudimentary. They have these <hes> look like floor mats and cars and they're using sticks to slap down the fire symptoms the men just kicking at the fire. There are no firetrucks no hoses no radio there actually calling out to each other right now. That's how they're communicating in the bush this villager the repairs. He says his name is jefferson. He tells us he was the one who first reported. The fire even started fighting the fires himself. He said the fire burned.

It is believed that many of the fires were started by farmers trying to clear land environmentalists say bolsonaro seeming support for the development of the amazon over environmental practices may have emboldened farmers to burn land. The area of smoke from expires is so large it is visible from space a carbon monoxide plume hovering over the amazon. The amazon produces twenty percent of the world's <music> oxygen helps regulate. The earth's temperature and brazil is only at the start of its dry season which typically lasts until november wait agonizing minutes flames and smoke to sign dead hit back in check geronimo. This was lush jungle. Well it is now completely charred and we're going back here to see if <hes> that farmer named toronto is okay and then you you right over there.

You may have missed. I'm sherry preston coming up football stars ending their careers early i sex and the city reshaped the landscape of pop culture at influenced this conversation surrounding love and dating for women in their twenties and thirties exchange though people get older including the creator of sex in the city candace bushnell she is that was a new book based on her own journey through middle-age divorce dating again in your fifties my colleague michelle franzen. I talked to her about that and how she hopes her new book. Is there still sex in the city. Help others going through similar experiences. This book was not really about dating. It's more about as a woman getting older. What's it like getting older. First of all this idea of kind of a new passage of life over fifty is actually a fairly new and ah and very very recent idea because up until probably about thirty or forty years ago there simply weren't enough people over the age of fifty to be of much interest and that's what all the algorithms stop at fifty. Nobody's trying to sell anything to people over fifty. <hes> over fifty is traditionally not even a demographic so that's a message from society that people over fifty don't matter and that just simply isn't a relevant way to look at life today. I mean today's fifty year old. Is you know vibrant. <hes> is working. Maybe starting another career career you know nobody is sliding into retirement so this book is it's really about what i call this new uh-huh middle age and yet you know we're our society is so ages that we've all absorbed negative vestiges about aging. Do you feel that's changing a bit. I mean let's go on your history here with you with your writing with your experience here in new york city <hes> <hes> what's changed for you. You're you've written. This latest book based on your experiences to what's changed over the decades for you. You know i think it's about going through all these different passages in the life cycle <hes> and i think that's what it's really about and for a lot of i mean for me me sex and the city was really about a particular time and about a particular passage and you know that's a a ton on one's life where you're you're single and you're not you know. You're not making a home with somebody else. You're on your own and that's collided where you are now right well. That's what's so interesting about. This new middle age is that it's a for a lot of women it really feels like a full circle and i think that's something that people are not expecting because of the way that life works and jobs aren't permanent the fifties or even the sixty can be a time when you you oh how to reinvent your life so candice based on your books and you're following whether it's through words or through the series or the movies you captured. Did you set a time especially in new york city <hes> that probably applied to women nationwide as well if not worldwide. What will they find in this book. <hes> specifically about again new york city or about the error that they live in well first of all the book is partly about the city but it's it's but it's also about the phenomenon of people leaving the city and finding bonds and making <hes> you know a metaphorical affordable family outside of the city because that happens a lot in this book the characters go back and forth a bit and already i've had so so many women come up to me and say you just hit the nail on the head and this is exactly what i'm going through and this is exactly what my friends are going through. I think what's tricky about it. Is that <hes> you know. It's kind of getting women to accept the fact that you know there is a certain time in your life. Would maybe not everything is going to be perfect. No matter how hard you work at it you know this is really about reinvention. It's about the full full circle of of finding your friends again and mostly getting your mo jo back and finding out who who you are in the world again as a woman in middle age and not in childbearing years. That's a good way to end it because it really lee is a full circle that you talk about. I mean you're kind of doing the same things now that you did before but you're you're reinventing and that's what a lot of women do at this age i mean we hit the sage and we go. Oh wow okay. I've done that that and that what's next and then you talk about a lot in your book. Is there still sex in the city so candace bushnell. Thank you very much and thanks michelle q.

Lock your late headline headline. Will you announced your retirement at twenty nine years old and you said with the injury happened in the super bowl that made you think about or consider retirement and tell us about that. I was was thinking about it for a year or two. Now you know just going through the seasons and going through those those times and all the injuries and hits and everything but you know the icing on the cake. <hes> was definitely hitting the super bowl. You know had to stay in the game for sure. You know. It's the last game you got. It's the super bowl man <hes> but that that hit with was brutal it was deep and literally put a hole in my quiet like for like four weeks you can like robert and like that you had fluid fluid drained out of your while after that and you retired but you could tell you still even though the game to joy. You still got emotional talking about it. Yes because you know i love the game of football and i have so much respect for the game of football and i understand what i signed up for. <hes> ah so football to me has brought me to this fire and football has made me stronger person one hundred percent and i'm so thankful for and and i played in one of the greatest organizations in all of sports and i'm so thankful for that opportunity and i play with the greatest player of all times the greatest coach of all time one of the greatest owners of all times and i'm so thankful for that and it can help me go to the next chapter in my life <hes> taking things from their seeing what i learned from guys like that and going on in my life and learning what i've learned the circumstances i went through.

The decision was clear earlier. I knew when i did retire too. I i didn't even have that passion that like to call up everyone because i just needed to get it out of the way but when i have talked about it before with with teammates and stuff and they all understood totally i would say now that i have talked to teammates. Since there are one hundred percent supportive they all know what the game is like and to walk away on my own terms is just a great way to to leave and you hit on something you guys. Did you play the game. You know what it's like van. They see somebody who looks able body healthy great player going out on top andrew luck great player comeback player two year retire at twenty nine like you did fans weren't so happy with his retirement but for you. What advice do you have for him. You know since i've since i've been retired for five months i had a game plan though and i know that you can basically fix like any injury that you you sustain football. I mean like there's ways out there to recover. There's ways out there to get better and then when you get better you can get stronger from there so that's what i knew you and i knew i had to step away from the game of football in order to accomplish that to let my body he'll let my mind.

It's a lot less than that and we'll say we're in a very powerful position. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologizing after a photo shows him dressed in Brown face it. It was something that I didn't think was racist at the time but now I recognize this is something racist to do and we remember. ABC News Contributor and Journalism Eliza Micon cokie Roberts when I started out in the world of work it was illegal for women to become generals or admirals so there's a huge change in the years that I've even plowing this all ahead on perspective this week the world of journalism lost a giant. ABC He news journalist and political commentator Cookie Roberts passed away at the age of seventy five cited by the American women in Radio and television is one of the fifty greatest women in the history of broadcasting casting. She was named a living legend by the Library of Congress in two thousand eight. ABC's Robin Roberts look back on Coke life this week on Good Morning America. We're following following two major stories tonight tributes pouring in across the country for pioneering journalist Cokie Roberts candidates seem to think it works and they all keep opting into the system because they like the system people from all walks of life celebrities politicians fellow journalists offering the woman viewed as one of the best political commentators and broadcasting. We we lost a an amazing giant in the world of journalism. I great woman. Her name was cokie Roberts. The women of the view holding back tears remembering during the legendary journalists influence on those who followed in her footsteps she just sort of gave me that stamp of approval that I didn't even know that I needed but but I needed it and she was there for so many of the women here at ABC News known for her sharp with and integrity she earned admiration from both sides of the aisle even when giving tough interviews and say no no no they were wonderful answers not to answer sufficiently former president George W Bush and former first lady Laura Bush calling cokie a talented tough and fair reporter we respected her drive and appreciated her humor. She became a a friend former president Obama saying cokie a trail-blazing figure informing voters about the issues of our time and mentoring young journalists every step of the way born in Louisiana in nineteen forty-three cokie Roberts lived and breathed politics the daughter to longtime. US Representatives Hale L. Bogs and Lindy Boggs who collectively serve the people of New Orleans for forty six years after working at anchor at twenty one she became a reporter in New New York then political commentator at NPR ABC News and in Nineteen Eighty Eight cokie founder founder home right here at ABC News her extraordinary life and career and inspiration to countless women. You talked about the men having agenda Virginia it gets disrupted but your gender got disrupted tune trailblazer herself bravely fighting a cancer diagnosis in two thousand and two while working throughout her career career to highlight the untold remarkable contributions of women in American history. When I started out in the world of work it was illegal for women to become generals admirals so there's a huge change in the years that that I've been plowing this turf go but for those who were blessed to work beside her the impact of her loss weighs heavily on an industry change so much by her influence her integrity and unimaginable kindness cokie was diagnosed with breast cancer in two thousand two and worked to encourage women to get regular mammograms? ABC's Ju Chang Recounts One of those stories. I've learned and the women throughout our history incredibly influential unbelievably brave cokie Roberts wasn't just a journalist journalist. She was a survivor every year millions of women around the world learn they have breast cancer in the house they picked up seats in two thousand and two it was cokie but in truth cokie fashion. She refused to let it beat her or even take her off the air. I felt am I going on the air and a wig that I looked really goofy and and election night two thousand and two it was my best wig was the human here we're nothing synthetically and I thought it just looked awful so I don't know it's hard for bravery inspiring others like this up and coming TV writer Jessica a quarter at the time. I don't remember feeling very brave but I remember cokie continually telling me that I was very brave. Just because mother had just died from ovarian ovarian cancer in two thousand and four Jessica took then groundbreaking genetic test and found out she was positive for the Brca gene which put her at extremely high odds needs to one day get cancer herself. One of my very best friends lies Roberts asked if I wanted to speak to her mother-in-law I knew she was incredibly it close to her mother-in-law. I also knew that her mother-in-law was cokie. Roberts and I absolutely was enamored by cokie tonight the story of the young woman who learns what she's inherited from her mother a year later Jessica decided to tell the world sharing her story with cokie Keith right here on a special edition of Nightline. Just tell me the story of deciding to get tested for the breast cancer gene. My mother had had breast cancer which she beat that interview with cokie Roberts on nightline absolutely changed my life. It was a turning point in my life Jessica discussing the new science that she hoped would help save her life and he said yes. It's very bad it means you will most likely get cancer at some point in your life and it's a very good thing he took this this test and after you got that news we should say here. I was one of the people you contacted because you are a very good friend of my daughter-in-law in-law Jessica says it was Kochi's warms that made it possible for her to talk about something so intimate so painful I remember looking into coke as is and feeling a sense of calm and feeling that I was going to be taken care of and that I was with someone who cared about me personally as well as cared about out being the best journalists that she could be Jessica says the interview and the example cokie set helped put her on a path towards advocacy and leadership ship all these years later a mother herself. The Way cokie treats her son and her daughter and her grandchildren. That's the kind of mother and grandmother that I aspire to be throughout her storied career. cokie was known for always putting Family First COKIE and her husband Steve Steve recently celebrated their fifty third wedding anniversary there interfaith marriage blending his Jewish and her Catholic faith seamlessly wedding pictures from from getting to that point was not easy but the hardest part of push this getting Steve to propose to me so it wasn't bad at all genuine. Unkindness was her hallmark part of her legacy her fight against breast cancer from which we now know she died and yet her brilliant career seems seems merely a backdrop to her life's true mission. How would you like to be remembered? I'd like to be remembered as a mother and wife and friend of people that I love very much cokie Roberts had worked at ABC News for more than thirty years and she was is always someone who is willing to talk about politics so before the two thousand sixteen presidential election she sat down with me to talk about what kind of president she thought Donald Trump might be if he were elected but donald trump will have a very difficult time dealing with Congress he's never had to do that before and they are not the easiest people on our studio you're with and the idea that he can just do something like build. A wall will come up very short very fast and he is is not going to be able to just go out there and say these things and have them happen so I think that's likely to be very frustrating for him. I I to the degree that he's still able to command the bully pulpit as he did through the campaign he will certainly do that but to the degree that it's effective if is a very big question mark cokie written extensively about America's first ladies so we also talked about some of the challenges that Melania trump might face again. If Donald Trump were elected it is not that easy for any first lady who has not been first lady of a state it was not easy for Michelle Obama it was much much easier for both Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton having come from statehouse and knowing what kinds of things that they could make their voices heard on on so I think that she'll have to figure it out but I think she probably will figure it out and she does have a young child and like Michelle Obama she will want to be devoting some a good bit of time to that child and remember this was twenty sixteen. We talked about Hillary Clinton and the age of the woman who got closer than any other woman to being president. Joe Biden is older and certainly was ready to go Bernie Sanders older and wage very very active campaign you know the seventies are not what they used to be. I'm happy to say so it also really as those who speaks something for a woman who is in her seventies. I mean a woman in her seventies before was grandma and women in her seventies is not that anymore at all seventy seventy you know sixty nine is the new forty nine well. That's pushing it but that any sixty nine year old is she gets out of bed in the morning but that's takes toughness aches and pains. I mean you're the president of the you're the president of the United States keep going regardless. You know my the mother took a new job in a new country. At the age of eighty one is the ambassador to the Vatican and served in that post for four years until she was eighty five and did just great thank you so i. I really don't think that it's a huge problem and you know when you're at the White House. You don't have to put your suitcase in the overhead them. Somebody does that that for you so it's a lot easier subways here at ABC radio we work closely with Kochi and her husband Steve Roberts and we send our sincerest condolences to the Roberts Family Okay Roberts will certainly be missed here at ABC news coming up president trump issues a warning to Iran prime minister issues an apology on perspective after this these days news comes out of Washington so fast it can be hard to keep up. I just don't think this is going to play out the way everybody thinks it's going to play out. We're getting a giancarl prediction special music for this. I'm ABC News Political Director recline join me along with ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl every week as we break down the facts and turn to Washington insiders with questions on the powerhouse politics podcasts or you're gonNA talk to Moan. I I'm looking forward to listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast just out welcome back to perspective and Cheri Preston President Trump ordered increase sanctions on Iran this week is the Saudi Saudi government publicly blamed Iran for the attack on its oil facilities tensions between Iran and the US rising ultimate option and their the options are a lot less than that and we'll say we're in a very powerful position. President also named Robert O'Brien is his new national security adviser will hit on those things and other topics in the world of politics ticks with ABC News Political Director recline brick before we begin. Let's talk a little bit. If you would briefly about cokie roberts she really was someone who those of you. In Washington Washington just depended on. She's a wonderful reporter an incredible personality around town but most of all sherry just incredible torsion someone who mentored generations literally generations of young reporters particularly young female reporters in a business that a lot of people end up looking out for themselves she loved to Gossip Sherry but it was never a mean-spirited way. she loved people she loved their stories and we were so fortunate to have her educate us a little bit about the world that she knew and to watch her educate yourself about the world that she wanted to know this was literally living legend as the Library of Congress said but never once someone that just lived off that every day she she lived a soak look things up into spread information to spread cheer frankly and you know you and I were talking a- of all the bureaus here at ABC News here in New York Washington Los Angeles and London where I've been those are the four that I've been to me. Washington is the most like a family you guys are tight down there in Washington. We've covered for each other during family events. We've been there for each other during emergencies and in that context cokie was was our mother she was our rock. Everyone knew cokie. Everyone loved cokie and the way that she took people under her wing Ivan struck by the stories. I never knew about sharing of people that work for me some of them in their early twenties and then other people that I consider a mentor who in turn consider cokie Roberts to be events where literally the people in their twenties through their seventies who will say if not for Cokie I could not have been the reporter I could not have been the mother or the father that I was and before we move on on Steve Roberts was very good to us here at ABC News Radio. He did a lot of our live news coverage. When it comes to political events how is the family doing Steve came by and spent some time with us us and he is in a terrific place for the benefit of all of us and he and the family are so giving of themselves at this moment that frankly we need them as much they need us? I'm very much looking forward to reminisce some more about the the wonderful person wonderful reporter that she was billed. BLASIO is as dropped out of the race he did not have enough momentum not even make it into the democratic debate that ABC held last week he made clear that was a critical threshold. This was a campaign that not a lot of people understood from the start at least of all new New Yorkers where he's polarizing figure in the city but it never really caught on I do think he contributed to the energy and values into the debate but this was a very crowded but field. It's a little less crowded now. Okay and finally president trump this week. some of the stuff national security adviser we've got a new one and and all the talk about Iran and the Pentagon and the president politically where do we stand on that the president's action of the Iran back and forth of course the change of the national security adviser a lot of official official Washington is is waiting on a president who is as unpredictable as ever okay. Thank you rick. Thanks Sherry Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologized after photo surfaced of him dressed in a turban wearing round face makeup at an Arabian nights theme Party in two thousand one also noted noted he wore racially insensitive. Make up on a separate occasion in highschool. ABC's Brad Milkey talked about all of it with shallow rang Gwala a faculty lecturer at the University of Alberta BERTA ABC's Daily podcast start here. I attended an end of year. Gala theme was Radian Nights. A photo was obtained by Time magazine depicting picked Trudeau at the age of twenty nine. The future Prime Minister of Canada is at a party. The theme is Arabian Nights and always wearing a turban aerob- and thick nick dark brown makeup. He's in Brown fix. It was something that I didn't think was racist at the time but now I recognize it. Was something racist to do do I am this has rocked. Canada got Chamo- rang Walla with us. She's a faculty lecturer at the University of Alberta or she specializes in race and gender so Dr Doc Wallet What has been the reaction Canada so this is really huge because of course Canadians likes to be pretty smug about being nice and everybody gets along long and Ca- Canadians liked to differentiate themselves from the US so one this Ralph Northam came out of course contains all nothing like that would ever happen here and now you know as you say it's. It's this huge huge scandal here. You know I think a lot of people who experience racism in Canada or maybe not the prize but I think the Canadian liberal to have this you know mythology is idealized version of Canada are really feeling their world like shaken by this. I think that like people outside outside of Canada think of it as very white but we actually have quite diversities and in and in the rural areas too because there were a lot of really open immigration gratien policies put in by Tro Senior Justin Trudeau's father so my parents came over from Indiana seventies and that was part of this wave wave of them and and so there are actually a lot of people of Color Canada likes to think of itself as multicultural we look at the melting pot in the US and say no we celebrate our differences differences here and then you have the prime minister in two thousand and one in this kind of dark skinned Aladdin Causeway regretted deeply. I I'm the story that I did that. I should have known better but I didn't and I did that then I shouldn't have done that why does and so true because a statement to the press in the back of an airplane. He says he's deeply regretful. He apologizes but then he says there's another incident when he was in high school. When I was in high school I dressed up at a talent show and Sang Dale with with with with makeup on? What does this do to his political? Call trajectory such really really capitalize on this image of him south the kind of woke Woke Bay Prime Minister it worked all my life to try and create opportunities for people to Fight Against Racism and intolerance parent himself a feminist like when he got into office and then you see that actually you know he's a rich white man from the upper class of Canada where these things were considered acceptable and so I think that it will definitely affect people's impressions of him as for the election. I'm not sure how much it will affect the election coming up right now now yeah he's definitely hasn't been coasting along because there have been all kinds of disruptions that have been going on CRTV. Nanos polls shows the prime minister is taking a hit. There are a lot of people here there are a lot of you know Brown people from North Africa from the Middle East and and a lot of people from South Asia and so one one thing that's interesting about this with the media is that the media has been kind of conflicting black-faced Brown face and I think we need to be really clear about how how these are different things. It's not the history of Jim Crow that you know we all tops about with Ralph. Northam this is part of kind of orientalist fantasy like he is performing a lot an this is a character in a fairytale. This is not your neighbor but that is the fantasy. The fantasy is Brown. People who were turbans live elsewhere shamming from the University of Alberta. Thank you so much for the perspective.

I'm Sherry Preston coming up a better understanding of mommy cocktail culture but I daily Greenberg is a longtime democratic pollster based in Washington. DC He has counseled Bill Clinton and Al Gore among others so it's not surprising his new book would be called something like rip repea- Gop. The premises that the election of Donald Trump is so galvanized those who don't like Donald Trump Democrats and Republicans certain number of them then more Americans Americans than ever say they plan to vote in the twenty twenty election and the numbers just don't add up for the Republican Party. We sat down to talk first about the polling that Greenberg did in the months. That's right after the election and love one of the things that you said in here you have been polling for how many years God knows them. Older probably older than you bet not but let's but let's talk about when you the idea that when you polled Americans in I think it was Ohio wasn't wasn't that mccomb or am I right in Michigan Michigan okay after the election at the beginning it was you know everybody had no remorse about their vote whatsoever at all and afterwards I loved that what you said in the book is that it's like they turned into therapy sessions and everybody wanted to talk about what happened. Why they they voted how they voted and what they thought? Is that something that's common in in polling for you know well I mean my methods methodology ethnology in focus groups as get people with similar thinking demographics class gender in a room you know and talking to one another and interacting acting that just crashed after the election goes I initially put swing voters. You know together and I ended up putting Clinton voters. What is together with trump voters is so intense and engaged and at that point the Clinton voters were most angry that trumpet one and they were more aggressive the moderator moderator gotTa push them back? You know we'll we'll girl you know apologize for staying. You're the you're you're the face of this ugly politics fix that I see on TV and radio then I can only but Clinton voters together and only trump voters together and then they realize they've been in their family was a mess. They're fighting their kids you know were you know mad at them. We put on the trump voters Clinton voters but I was talking to trump voters more because I really wanted to know you know at what point they began to rethink and have doubts when it happened and not for a long time so the folks excuse me in therapy sessions for about a year you know after the election and we still can't you know mixed groups together really what happens offense when you do first of all the Democrats are so much more engaged and energized and determined then Republicans and trump gutters and so they dominant in in the session. There's also a big gender-based because the the men the white working class men you know which is the real base for trump they still embrace but the women are very different as they watch you can see it in their body language. They think he's as divisive because divisive. They think he can't get anything done right so you therefore you can't put men and women together. Even among trump voters right. yeah in the book is not about about polling sessions. Although I think that that is fascinating button there is a bigger thesis here and that is that the election of Donald Trump has actually energized those kind of in both parties towards the things you wouldn't expect them to be he focusing towards and by that I'm talking about government. I'm talking about immigration. You're talking about healthcare and things that were sort of trump was seeing is anti those things now. More people are pro those things more than ever before I wrote the book I got up after the women's March and wrote every day from four four thirty I you know I stopped me from writing his book because I you know I believe trump's election was actually the last throw the last battle of of a tea party dominated Republican party that only one because trump was able to appeal to working class voters on issues that were not normal Republican publishes about his base was tea party and evangelical the other half of the party were GONNA McCain type conservatives evidence and moderates or socially liberal but in government. He's driven them away so in one side. We've got a Republican Party. This become even more seventy percent of the base okay so the Party now are tea party Evangelical Observant Republicans who want pro-life anti-immigration anti-government in their focus but that's produced a pretty amazing in some ways hardening reaction because the majority of the public has become more conscious of our values values engage and determined to at believe vote them out. It's a really interesting thought when you say okay this is actually the pendulum swing the other way which a lot of people did not see. How do you come up with the idea that this is going to be an even bigger blue wave than in twenty eighteen right when you take it all back to the electoral college and those dates that it all comes back to in one of the things that you raise two is about the working class women who have abandoned right Donald Trump which is key to why those states are in our employees? What's happened is we've moved to a wave that so big that it raises a lot of these the problems if those ten percent of Republicans who were or McCain type and moderates you've got a increasing number of people who wanna use activist government and you've gone from half the country saying immigration benefits to country to two thirds and it's rising every day and so there's a change in in you know consciousness? Yes Republicans you know eighty over eighty percent approve of him but over ninety percent of Democrats disapprove yes sixty five percent Republican strongly approve of trump but now eighty five percent of Democrats strongly disapproved that twenty point gap is the biggest gap we've ever seen so. There's a real intensity gap. That's moving to the Democrats and the other piece is the level of engagement agent is just has thrown out every formula upholster would have we have this scale zero to ten on how like how closely you're following politics ten is extremely closing so at the two thousand eighteen election it hit the highest point we've ever had on that Andrew in two thousand eighteen produced a high turnout in an off year election never now in every election we've ever pulled that number that has the percentage following politics closely extremely closely dropped sharply and then it goes up month by month into yet to the election year. We've now pulled three times this year and the numbers ten points higher then in two thousand eighteen and so we have this measure of whether you're likely voter but every registered voter qualifies millions of new voters in a lot the polls you'll say you you know you guys will ask are you a registered voter versus a likely voter. What you're saying is everybody's every right now so that is clearly going to be you know this is GonNa be millions of voters that are coming in at the same time? The working class is more ambivalent about trump. Well well Stanley Greenberg. Your latest book is called. GOP How the new America is dooming the Republicans. Thank you so much coming up instagram.

ABC's Kimberly Brooks spoke with two of the men who contribute to the page joined by Mike Balabagn ingest I into your door. I'm saying your last name correctly a contributing illustrator for the page. Thanks for being with us. You know everyone on my team. Who's looked through this page and everyone that follows? It's emotional. It's impactful. It's just a beautiful collection of stories. So how did you guys get started. Working on. This steuern are met through Scrim. We both have pages and follow each other. So what is the guy who runs the pace is in Scotland is a forty four year old man who prefers to go by one name so the attention is focused on on the page not him and we began helping each other in various ways. I'm a gay story and and I've contributed dozen or more tributes to my friends aunts who died from the disease with photos and stories so that their lives will be remembered. I just kind of stumbled upon it just as a social media person just came upon the instagram and kind of was so drawn to the stories I think it kind of makes me pause and read and you know I think each field this connection to it so I just was following calling it and then you know through social media connect with WHO's involved. It's I think it's not just messages and then he approached me a couple of years ago because he wanted to have some sort of image that he could use for some post some posts there was no photographs images of the people that were being profiled into somehow honor honor them so he has interested me illustrations for and you said that you have contributed a lot of stories yourself so I wanna read one of the posts post that you have on the page about your friend Chris you say every life sniffed out by AIDS has its own story Chris Smith and I attended the same Grad school school a year apart but didn't meet until we attended an alumni cocktail party and seventy nine in the spring of one thousand nine hundred eighty six Chris collapsed at work. He died after a week after his last day at work still undiagnosed Chris was a dapper handsome smart Witty Funny Renaissance Man with premature salt and pepper hair. We loved him yet. Were angry with him for leaving the way he did. What are these posts mean to you? Well the stigma surrounding disease certainly in the nineteen eighties when it was discovered and even today is tremendous and so we're trying to reclaim the lives of those we lost. We're trying to memorialize them bringing their lives into full relief for people today publicly for the first time and kind of a reckoning with the way they left this life and how much we lost just as a result of their departure the thing I like to the lot to with the instagram but just reading these really personal stories and I think you kind of forget what happened in the past pass and I think I mean you kind of learn about the history of AIDS and everyone who suffer from it and what we lost. I think you don't want to forgets. These people they are actual people and I think what was is really just beautiful for me. How responded to the site? Was You know profile everyone from obviously there are celebrities and famous actors but you know even just brothers fathers MOMS. I was very honored just to kind of do my own part to help keep those memories alive with the artwork. You know some of the people that passed away. Do you find it to be th- Arctic well for me. Personally I've kind of gone through a long healing process on my own. Although I've talked to a lot of people who haven't still still hold onto that pain and for them it clearly is th- Arctic but for me it's more about remembering them and it's about bringing the generations together and bring this to the attention of millennials and Gen's ears who aren't aware how devastating disease was how stigmatize people are afraid in the eighties that you could catch aids just by touching someone or breathing the same mare so patients were left untended hospitals to bring that to the attention of the world today and have people realize and what we don't learn about the past week we can repeat eight so this is an important Mitzvah by Stewart to make sure everyone is aware and for the first time finally were able to do that coming up mommy cocktail culture dangerous it could be masking on perspective after this have a dream but don't know where to begin. I didn't want to be limited looking for wisdom for women who've already been there you will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself welcome to ABC's no limits. I'm your host Rebecca Jarvis and each week we're talking to the game. Changing women about success lessons learned along the way and of course the worst advice. I really thought about the worst advice ever you can hear new. Oh episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. This is perspective from maybe news. I'm Sherry Preston. The cool mom cocktail culture is everywhere but some mothers are battling back against it by taking a long hard look at their own drinking habits. ABC's Deborah Roberts as the story. I would drink a lot at home wine just like a glasser to and build better and then you get the kids to bed and then I would drink like the rest of the bottle and start on another one. I needed more and more to feel relaxed. Amrried even unexpected confession because from the outside harmony hobbs was super MMA but the Louisiana mother of three number was also the ultimate wine mom if there was an event like a play or if I had a birthday party go to it was a bad and it's fine like all my friends. It's like Oh that's hilarious. Harmony even running a successful blog called modern mommy madness celebrated cool moms who enjoy their cocktails else but for harmony those mean filled moments of motherhood revealing a dark truth that life for her wasn't as happy without alcohol harmony saying the stresses of mothering leading to constantly fill her glass. I had a very successful career in insurance and I quit to behind with my kids. I didn't feel like I I had the right tools to be a good mother. That really bothered me. I drink because that's the only way I knew to cope with uncomfortable feelings mummy wine culture a narrative playing out on screens big and small from hit movies like bad MOMS to Kathy Lee and Hoda experts warned the growing popularity of Mommy drinking culture culture can mask alcohol abuse but some moms across the country are speaking out like actress busy Phillips Getting Real about parenting on a twenty eighteen uncover of parent magazine saying I'm so over the wine culture mommy wine and glasses that say mommy Jews harmony joining that conversation Russian opening up about the toll drinking took on her family you were angry. I was angry a lot. Alcohol made me more depressed. Unfortunate part is that my children and husband bore the brunt. Will you worried about the children I was never worried about the children because even at her peak of everything always hormone is a very very loving and caring for our children but even at age six oldest soon maverick noticed MOMS have it. Did you know that she was drinking a lot of Y. I I did know that that because I didn't know it was out of the ordinary because that's how I grew up. That's what I was used to every night she would grab glass of wine and I asked her what's that and she was like. It's Swat it's an alcohol she was trying to deny the fact that she was using it as an outlet for stress from two thousand one to two thousand thirteen alcohol use among all women in the US rose nearly sixteen percent while the percentage of women having four or more drinks on a weekly basis shot up by fifty eight percent the peaking of the alcohol market being sparked by endless products and mantra like mommy fuel harmony and best friend and writing partner Audrey Hayworth worth buying in the to getting a kick out of their youtube drinking antics looking back. I can see that she drank more than I did. Audrey soon realized that her friend was overindulging. I was so deep in denial. It never occurred to me. That was an alcoholic. Tell me about those first few days and weeks I wanted to I really did over two years. Sober harmony is now discovering a shifting culture with some MOMS choosing to trade in their wine glass for wellness those those joining the so-called sober curious movement today harmonies play dates look very different no alcohol just network of supported moms so what the play dates like now without alcohol talk about not drinking children imagine that do you think you've you found yourself now. Yes I do and I really liked myself. I really feel like I like who I am and I'm not trying to run away away from me anymore from ABC News. This has been perspective.

Perspective

Full Episode: Friday, September 4, 2020

"From ABC News. This is perspective this week stories and why they matter I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up teachers had back to class with more questions than answers amid pandemic this week seeing kids I'm happier this week that I was the entire month of August but the danger has increased exponentially as protests over social justice continue will break down presidential polling a lot of the polls. These days are national, but that's not how elect the president. We elect our president with the Electoral College and the Great Chadwick Bozeman reflects on what Black Panther meant to him. Hopefully, this is something you know after people see it, it will be a group of kids would say, oh, that's that's. All. Ahead on. Perspective. Is Liberty weekend, the unofficial end of summer. So we want to begin this week with school and the teachers who are working so hard to figure out what's the safest and most effective way to do things this fall the blogger one funny mother did up pretty spot on satire of what educators have been grappling with as their districts try to appease them the students parents, the school board and Health and safety guidelines. Parents I've your local school administrator here. Thank you so much for taking seventy two surveys this past summer. So helpful, and at the time we were able to offer you three different models. We were able to offer you a face to face hybrid and completely virtual option. I will say this time though since our communication last most of the teachers in the virtual program have retired or resigned to move onto more burgeoning and safe careers with. A GRUB hub insecure and skydiving instruction. So I, it's funny but it's very personal to those who have dedicated their careers to help and teach our children. This is a subject that's very close to my own heart since I come from a family of teachers three of them agreed to talk to be this week about what they've been going through all summer and what their thoughts are so far it's British. American history to eleventh grade. Students in Jefferson Parish Louisiana outside New Orleans, and Amas, W Crowe, I teach tenth and Eleventh Grade Special Ed students in Racine Wisconsin and aim is Britney Hutchinson. I teach second grade to students in mcgahn Wisconsin Bridget is my niece Debbie is my sister and Britney is engaged to Debbie son Alex that means pretty soon she'll be my niece in law. But enough about that, let's talk about school. All three of these teachers school districts are doing things differently in. Jefferson Parish Louisiana where they are teaching partly remote, and partly in person bridget says, they were preparing to teach one way but were then told to do it differently. Originally students had two options could sign up to be virtual or sign up to be a hybrid student were they came two days a week. The original plan in Jefferson parish was at virtual teachers would have virtual students would have their own teachers and complete their own independent coursework two weeks before the start of school. They changed that and said that regular teachers would be teaching virtual students and hybrid students. So at my school, we've had about a month to prepare how exactly to teach the students that are in front of us and the. Twenty to thirty students that are on our computer and macron Wisconsin where they're all online for now but will soon be in person it was the same story weeks ago there was a board meeting and kind of the messaging all throughout the summer was we're going back. We're going back and then they've flipped it because of the cove numbers being so high throughout the month of July and the beginning of August and they said, no, we're doing all virtual everybody is starting virtual. And everybody lost their mind and in Racine Wisconsin where Debbie Crow is now working inside an empty classroom to students who are on zoom teaching summer school did help. Once that was over was on August hit and everything was off decisions were being made for over doing and that's when it got stressful was so many different districts doing different things and nobody really listening to. Teachers. It was more like what parents wanted and it was hard for me to as a fifty five year old educators benching for thirty five years to realize that I. didn't have a say in what was going to happen when school started and it was wasn't just I didn't want to be there. It was our health that was on the line and that was what's That, going to be affected a teaching high school students mostly in person has its drawbacks namely, not much direction in the way of cleaning supplies p. p. e. assistant principals trying or issue tends to be higher up of delay getting supplies delay passing out supplies such a limited number of supplies. For example, the district mandated that each teacher only get twenty five gloves and that's twenty five individual gloves, not twenty five pairs so as. An unfortunate accident, you're missing one gloves and that's for the entire year twenty-five gloves for the year. If no idea for how long it is, we also were given sanitizer for desks and then we did research online and found out if it doesn't sit on the dust for five minutes, it's ineffective but teaching second graders remotely has its drawbacks too. We've learned in zoom because we use doom at my in my district we can turn their cameras off and we can meet everybody, but they can also turn their camera back on an UN mute themselves. So how long did it take them to figure that out? Thirty seconds. So they on themselves and they're shouting to their friend heavier mom call my mom can we be putting a breakout room by ourselves? So we can talk to each other like they just think it's playtime like by the end of the day I had kids sideways upside down there on the bed there on the floor they're walking around like you lose their focus and you you understand completely they are seven and they have had summer where they've been running around they haven't had to sit and attend to a task. Or learning sometimes, it makes them wonder if it's really worth it, we had three teachers. Have to resign one of whom was a close friend of mine because they could not risk coming to school and being part of this. So even just think of what you have lost in a classroom there a three teachers that probably had ten to fifteen years left to teach those kids are missing out on them because they can't they can't do this, and so the fact that there is no option or no middle ground for teachers besides. Either resign or for your life on the line we all love kids and we all love teaching, which is why we're doing this and why I mean the only way to get through it is just not to think about it. It'd be like why have to go every day and I've already I I mean this week seeing kids I'm happier this week when I was the entire month of August but the danger has increased exponentially I mean I've seen more people will last week also that I've seen the entire month of August bridget has been teaching for seven years. Britney for five and Debbie is the veteran with more than thirty five years of experience and what I asked them what does keep them coming back? They all said the same thing. There's a reason why we're doing this because we love kids and we love teaching and seeing what we're what the future is going to be like We wouldn't be in nest if we didn't love the kids and for people to. Say That we're lazy and that we're selfish and that where you know we have to get back there because our kids need childcare to Kinda demotes what you're doing and it makes you feel like is this really worth it and but it is it is worth it. Just enjoy the most is is honestly back I mean I really missed teaching I. GOT TO DO my first. We did like a bunch of interest for the first few days and I got to actually teach life first two lessons and it was. So Great I. Love Teaching. It's what we all want to do. We just want to do it in a way that's a little bit easier. Than what's currently happening the best thing like bridget and w said, it's it's seeing the kids it's getting back with the kids like we are so passionate about these kids we take these kids in as our own every single year. So when people are like, you can go back to work you'll be fine. It's like maybe I will be. But if God forbid anything happens to any of my kids or any of my kids families or anybody in my school family, it's going to be heart-wrenching and it's going to be traumatic people keep talking about kids mental health and how they have. To stay home is going to be the worst thing for them. It's not going to be that great if something God forbid happens to a classmate or a teacher that they love parents are obviously stressed right now school administrators are stressed right now students are stressed right now and teachers they've never ever done things this way will it work none of us know which plans will be best for students in the long run so for now like with everything in the great slog, that is twenty twenty we'll have to wait and see thanks again to family members Bridget Sloan Debbie Crow and Brittany. Three teachers who are grappling with how to go back to school for helping out and giving us your perspective. President trump and his twenty twenty democratic rival Joe Biden Bowl physical Kenosha Wisconsin this week though neither were really invited Wisconsin Governor Tony Either said the state needed to heal in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob. Blake on Tuesday president trump flew to the city meeting with law enforcement officers and repeating his message of law and order people are going for structural change, and then you could take the people of Kenosha that aren't here and that you won't see and that aren't protesting they want change also, they wanna see law and order. That's the change they will earlier in the day on Thursday Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had met privately with blakes family at the Milwaukee Airport Jacob Blake himself called from his hospital bed he talked about how? Nothing, was going to defeat him. How were the walking or not? He was not going to give up by then held a community meeting in Kenosha church decrying violent demonstrations while also saying there's been an awakening in America. The tones of the two visits couldn't be more different. We've also seen a fair amount of polarization and polling since this election cycle began, there's a substantial difference in the issues that matter most to. Supporters of each candidate according to recent polling data conducted by the Pew Research Center Climate Change in racial and ethnic inequality are hugely important to Biden supporters while for supporters of president, trump, violent crime immigration, and gun policy of the most important. We hear a lot about polling every election cycle. But now with so much data and so many polls out there. It's hard to decipher what the. Numbers mean in how accurate they are. Courtney Kennedy is the Director of Survey Research the Pew Research Center which conducts analyzes a lot of polling. I spoke to her this week about her new article, key things to know about election polling in the United States details how we can all better understand polls as voters tell us a little bit about the article that you have been working. On and things that people need to keep in mind for the upcoming election what are some of the most important things you know totally understandable lay in an election year people often WANNA look to polls to get a really accurate picture of what's going on with the presidential campaign in particular. But that's actually not something that polls are best at because we're really far out from election day. Only. About sixty percent of Americans actually vote. So a lot of people that take polls don't vote. There's obviously a lot of uncertainty in terms of this election with the pandemic in in in other possible challenges to voting. So there's all kinds of reasons why holes are really more of just a rough picture of of the race but what what I would encourage people to look at polls for is you know how the public feeling about the candidates, what issues are impacting people how is the public reacting to the pandemic in the economy polls absolutely up to the challenge of giving us good. Data on those like high level issues. But you know if if you're looking to them to to call the winner in like a really competitive race, that's just really beyond what polls are capable of dealing. That's one of the things that really is effective on election nights to win network psychologists conduct exit polling, and they're not the numbers of who you voted for. But it's what issues are most important to you when people see polls and they see the horse race polls which the put out, and that's one thing that people really complained about the last election that means nothing basically doesn't it? It means. Only a little bit would say nothing's going strong but it certainly doesn't mean that what you can expect come election day for all the factors that that we just talked about. Absolutely. In, the other major recall is a lot of the polls. These days are national, but that's not how we elect the president right so in two thousand, sixteen, the national polls people forget actually good. The national polls came within a point of getting the national popular vote on the number but it didn't matter because we elect our president with the electoral. College this series of state level contests, and that's really where the polling errors were concentrated where in those battleground state. So it's not the case that you don't pulling writ large is broken rather. Two Thousand Sixteen we actually had kind of two storylines. Yes. The real issues with those state polls in two, thousand, sixteen but national polls polls that are done really carefully a still work well, and actually the twenty eighteen midterms showed us that as well. Couple of things that you write about in in your article are that people need to keep an eye out because the way different organizations do their polling is different. Their methodology is different and just like journalism polling companies have been able to pop up and in the middle of nowhere and just. Say, this is our poll. We're we're conducting it this way without any real rules in place that are very important for maintaining democracy. That's absolutely true. I think it's really important to look who conducted. The poll is an organization you've heard of it's got a track record and polling that you can trust to be doing. It is accurately as possible or is it some firm baby like consulting firm or even a campaign where you know you really have to ask questions about whether they had an agenda when they put out those data so it's Really a situation where the consumer you know the audience, it really have to beware there's a lot of politics in summer more trustworthy than others. Frankly when you're talking about the margin of error, it's something we all learned about plus or minus three points. You know what it means there's a poll could go either way, but you say it could be as much as double that. So really take that into account. That's right. If you hear poll is plus or minus three, you mentally think that it's about six and that's because the margin of error. One factor that can lead to two poles being plus or minus. But there's actually several more factors that don't get calculated in that margin of error in. So those of us in the polling field know that things like non response and mismanagement non coverage can add greater uncertainty but it's not reflected that margin bear not saying that polls are wrong or they don't value but it's just you know if you hear fifty, five percent of the public thinks acts just know that it's Fifty five percent is is an approximation when people hear that one candidate is far ahead of another candidate does that affect whether or not? They're going to vote prior to two thousand, sixteen I get that question I'd kind of brush it off because the science research really wasn't there suggesting that just you know hearing about a poll was enough to change people's minds to change their behavior there. There was really no strong scientific basis to think that what frankly after two, thousand sixteen. I certainly take that question a lot more seriously, I know my colleagues in the field due to this is an area where just starting to get more good science. The one study that's been done was experimental, but it showed that if somebody here's just one poll result, they're not likely to make any major. Decisions based on that but if people are told that a a racist very Uncompetitive that a candidate's extremely likely to. Like Ninety Eight, ninety, nine percent chances of winning that we heard with Clinton in in two thousand sixteen that can affect how some people think about voting and make some people less likely to vote. What does it mean when a poll relies on statistical adjustment called waiting? What does it mean when opole waited one way or another the goal is to take your survey conducted and make it match the population. So where I work, we do national poll. So I take our survey data in we adjusted to make it match the portrait of what the US public looks like that we have from the census. Bureau. So for example of. We get a pullback in its fifty eight percent women responding I'm GonNa wait that fifty eight percent down to about fifty two percent which I think is the among us adults and we do that on several things WE WANNA get age right education level race ethnicity geography other certain people or groups who are more likely to answer pollster questions than people other people who don't pick up the phone or don't answer questions. Yeah. That's absolutely true I've been in the field twenty years in I've seen poll after poll. People who are older and people who were white tend to be more likely to take serve as than the younger folks and people of Color, and another group that's more likely as with more formal education. So college graduates. So the point is to adjusted to make it match the population would that portrait we have from the census? Bureau what do you think the most important thing people need to keep in mind is when they read about a poll poll heading up between now and the November election? is to keep in mind that a poll is GonNa give you useful information again about about how people are feeling about policies pandemic experience, how people are reacting to the candidates but they're not gonna you don't want to think that they're going to be predictive of the outcome in a tight race. They're just not built to do that. They're not precise enough. In. So if you see a candidates up by two points in the state or even three points state I mentally think of that as as basically tied. Well, Courtney Kennedy Director of survey. Research. At Pew Research Center. Your article is called key things to know about election polling in the United States. It can be found on the Pew Research Center website and we thank you very much really important stuff. Appreciate it my pleasure. Thanks very much. Coming up remote working by working from home might be here to stay on perspective after this. From ABC News, this is perspective this week stories and why they matter I'm Cheri Preston. Coming up standing up in the face of rising violence against transgender women but I. So we talked about teachers completely transforming the way they are educating students but really haven't almost all of us changed something about the way we work if six months ago you were going into the office and today you're working from home you might be wondering how long will. It. Last, some experts say it should last forever. Let's take a look back and a look forward to the future of remote work. It was Wednesday march eighteenth when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the new reality for millions of office workers. Today we are announcing a mandatory state wide requirement that no business can have more than fifty percent of their workforce. Report to work outside of their home is announcement would lead the country to do the same thing. I understand that this is a burden to businesses. I get it I understand the impact on the economy. But in truth we're past that point as a nation and from then on many of you have been working from home exclusively and some of the nation's biggest tech companies like twitter and facebook of told their employees they'll remain at their homes from now on even though facebook CEO. Mark Zuckerberg did say those who moved to places where the cost of living is lower than silicon valley might see their salaries lower as well. According to the telecommuting research firm global workplace analytics. One of the biggest roadblocks of remote work is trust. Manager simply don't trust their people to work untethered there used to managing by counting butts in seats rather than buy results not managing its babysitting. Kate lister is the company's CEO into the biggest hold back since the term telework telecommuting was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three by Jack Nicklaus has been managers not trusting their employees. Basically, they're worried they're sitting at home on the Sofa eating bon-bons and not working all of the literature has pointed to the fact that they're actually more productive at home even before the pandemic. But now they've had a chance to do it and the longer they've done it the more likely they are to support it in the future people don't necessarily want to work from home all the time if they can help, but they do like being in the office isolation and loneliness are very real struggles for a lot of Americans right now. But one the pandemics over will they Want to continue working from home listeners. Research says, yes but not all the time maybe two or three days a week on average. There are things that you miss by not being at your desk or in person including not doing at your desk stuff there's no substitute for face-to-face you. We're finding that the younger employees are actually having a harder time with this than the older employees. Because they depend on that sort of subtle nurturing that goes on in the office in watching somebody and how they act a new. York. Times. Reporter told me that I learned how to interview by sitting in the bullpen. So there's a lot of that we're having trouble with on boarding having trouble with converting interns into employees. There are companies that hire people all on check. They've never even talk to the person and their hired virtually some ways that cuts down discrimination. You know it's really about who you are and what you can do. One of the things that real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran said is she didn't think I'll ever go back to brainstorm and meeting in person again because you get a Lotta politics in the. Room it changes things and you can see everyone in zoom call it makes a difference. Doesn't it? Yeah I mean it's less hierarchical when you see the CEO sitting there in a chair with his grandchild walking past or her grandchild walking past or the dog on his lap or whenever meet it just makes us more human and I hope that something that's GonNa. Come out of this is that we will have more empathy toward one another understand them as whole people. One of the many things the pandemic. May Have taught is that it's time to think of work differently it's time to start giving our families as much priority as we do our jobs office workers have come to realize they don't Wanna spend an hour and a half in traffic or on a train scraper listening to radio or podcast, but it's not so great when it comes to spending time with your kids or your parents and we've known for more than a decade that eighty percent of people want the ability to work flexibly to work. From home to work from anywhere in particular, it's not just about flexibility place it's flexibility and time work is interspersed with life. It isn't just this hard stop hard start. They say your home is your castle. When your castles a one bedroom apartment, it can seem more like a dungeon. That's another reason. Some of the younger people are having trouble because they don't have the bigger home a spare room that's an office. We just did a survey and we're asking how many of you who worked in a closet. And it's a pretty big number. You know we're just we're just making do. But again, you know this is not normal times list or says the best companies work with their employees to find a balance that's productive for both of them letting people who want to work from home work from home when they can and letting people who want to go into the office do that she thinks that'll continue beyond the pandemic I would say that that's the rule and it's the exception were the companies are not saying that and I think they're going to have trouble in the future hiring people because this has always been a high on a job priority list and. Now that so many companies are offering it. I think that you're really going to be left out if it's not. Part of your offering if you're one of the millions of office workers who have adapted to a new normal good for you, you're one of the millions miss going in talk with your boss if she's a good way to work with you and maybe find a new work from Home Office closet balance works for both of you. According to Human Rights Watch so far. This year there have been more than two dozen murders transgender or gender non conforming people in the US, the majority of whom were black transgender women. There's also been an uptick in non-fatal, but still violent attacks and the same group of people including one that was caught on video in Los Angeles recently ABC's line. AMIS. Has More on new. Developments in that case and the push to help save the lives of those in this vulnerable population in Los Angeles a disturbing attack against three transgender women on Hollywood boulevard.

If convicted calloway faces more than thirteen years in prison Williams facing more than eight years deputy da of the hate crimes unit is now assigned as prosecute are members of the transgender community are living in a state of crisis they are being attacked and killed in all parts of this country and around the World Kafondo David is president of lgbtq advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign since two thousand and thirteen we have tracked more than one hundred eighty violent debts involving transgender gender non conforming people this year alone, the organization has already tracked. Towards six violent deaths in two thousand seventeen, there were twenty seven deadly attacks for the entire year, which was their highest year ever recorded. David says the numbers are likely more because victims are often mis gendered and miss identified numbers of the Trans Community faced bias and discrimination just simply because of who they are forty percent of homeless youth are Lgbtq in over half of transgender or gender non conforming youth say that they've been mocked by their family for their identity. One in three transgender people report living in poverty. We also know about employment discrimination thirty percent of transgender employees report being fired. Denied a promotion or they experienced some form of mistreatment in the workforce, their data also shows the majority of these attacks against Black Trans women some of the reasons I think that I think Black Trans women vulnerable those were massaging Wa, which is society's negative view of black women and they massage any which is society's negative vehicles women in womanhood, and then the toxic masculinity thing where guys feel that it is that we as Black Trans Women are disposable. Cooper is the director of community engagement for the HR HRC's transgender justice initiative even more marginalized in is because of our intersection of identities. People just transit also Black Hispanic or Latin next. So when you continue to add all of those intersection ideas laid off the other, it pushes each of us further, Bam per department has been actively working to spread awareness and also implementing programs to empower the Trans and non binary community. Doing something that we call Justice and advocacy summits in six our citizens across the country where Trans Women I have been victimized, and they have been incidences of trance violence over the year before Hooper says there needs to be. Equity in access to jobs, education, healthcare and housing. Each of US plays a part in writing wrongs and bringing more equitable outcomes for marginalized folks. That's GONNA take intentional efforts by not just transport bowling J. People in Queer people. But also by gender allies, what the stigma and providing resources just one driver of change Alfonzo David President of HR, says, there is a direct relationship with failing to treat someone as a human being and how it manifests in violence. Some people will say, well, I'm not going to support. Someone in the Trans Community because I don't understand we heard the same arguments with respect to rates with respect to interracial marriages. The same sex relationships David says, the community must stop disassociating and engage to truly save lives members of our community have to see beyond ourselves. We have to understand that when a member of the transgender community is attack, we are attacked and we have to see that that the common thread that ties all of us together is our humanity, and if we lose that, we lose the true power of our democracy if we fail to step up and stand up for members of the transgender community with failing to stand up for ourselves reporting perspective Lionel Moyse ABC. News. Over the past ten days, the country lost to iconic leaders of industry at influential people color one known for his power on the basketball court the other for his power onscreen tributes poured in for both of them. Repeatedly, we heard about how significant they were too young people who looked up to them begin with John. Thompson the longtime coach of the Georgetown Men's basketball team he groomed fellow. NBA Hall of Famers Patrick Ewing and Alan Iverson and countless other players but he also stood up to racial injustice pudding by walking off the court to a standing ovation at home game in protest against proposition forty, eight and NCW rule change he said would have disproportionately hurt black players Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim do coach Mike Chefs ski where longtime rivals admirers and friends of John Thompson just. Overestimate. The impact. Of all of all coaches. And especially. African. American kids the city. That's who they looked up to John Thompson. We need him right now you there's nobody who came after him why Cam I'll tell you a number of the kids who are now men that I've coached. They will tell you that date grew up to Georgetown John Thomson. Brand was huge as far as the sense of self confidence and. A sense of hope, and then of course, there was Chadwick Bozeman the beloved actor and star of films like forty two and Black Panther who passed away after a private battle with colon cancer writer Tallahassee. Coats spoke about those moments impact with ABC's Byron Pitts Chat was articulating is only he could the humanity of black folks and that's what this is all about. You can't shoot a man in the back. Unless you believe they're you know subhuman or not human at all which was in in in the worker doing was communicating black humanity through black heroism he's gone. and. So that's a huge loss. That's a huge huge loss, a couple of years ago ABC News producer. Candice Williams spoke with Bozeman the premiere of Black Panther. They wanted to play a little bit of that interview for you as Bozeman reflected on how he hoped to inspire other black actors and children. What do you hope that it would mean to you know generations going further and looking at this film or even the culture that's going to be able to witness it hopefully it it becomes commonplace. Hopefully, this is something you know that is not the first time. It's ever happened for a young kid. You know after people see it, there will be a group of kids. Who Will Say oh? That's that's that's normal I think the other thing is you know after seeing this I think it's a conversation that happens between people in the diaspora whether you're on the side of the continent and you are you're still on the continent of Africa or you're in the Caribbean the United States or you're Europe and someplace in you've been disconnected from the content in some way it's a conversation I think in this film that that has now happened on this stage and in this particular way to art, and so I think that will allow people to connect in their own way to their to their specific pass and Future It's not often that superhero films get awarded for or even at times acknowledges within the academy and so on and so forth. What would that mean to you if this film potentially would be recognized for that or anything of that nature is always meaningful to be to be acknowledged by the academy because it'd be a part of the academy I I know the caliber of people that are in there and the vote in care about you know this this art form that we do so. It would be amazing especially because marvel has never had that happen before wanted films and of course, it's being black history month. The film is coming out you're on Time magazine. There's one of those moments that we're experiencing just kind of an aside what does black history month mean to you and how the Black Panther fit within that space is two sided. One black history month is extremely important because because we actually do need to make people focus on black history at a particular time 'cause it's not done in our education system is not done sometimes, I'd even in our churches is not done. Enough but also feel like we shouldn't just have a month where we do it. You know I, it's my it's. It's my belief. That is something. You should do all the time because Black Yusuf's part of all of our history and you can't really find time will black people have not affected our history and our civilisation.

Get Ten percent off your first month by going to better for help dot com slash perspective from A._B._C. News. This is perspective closer. Look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed I. I'm Cheri Preston coming up plenty. Twenty presidential candidates hit the stage for the second democratic debate. Let's be clear about this. We are the the Democrats we are not about trying to take away health care from anyone. That's what the Republicans president trump pushes back and claims his comments about Baltimore to more are racist. I am the least racist person there is anywhere in the world. When conman who I know you know my business life because I had to deal with but fortunately certainly in New York but I got along without dropped and now he's the right and how that perfect selfie could be causing harm to America's public lands with greater greater influx of people it creates more wear and tear and eventually given enough time they'll lose their scenic attractiveness? All all ahead on perspective. The Democratic candidates faced off in Detroit this week for the second debate cycle of the Twenty Twenty Presidential Race Two nights twenty candidates many of whom seemingly fighting to keep their candidacies alive many of them projecting their visions often very different envisions of America and the Democratic Party. Let's be clear about this. We are the Democrats. We are not about trying to take away healthcare from anyone. That's what the Republicans Republicans A._B._C.. News Political Director Rick Line was in Detroit. I talked to him about the fallout. After two nights of going back and forth the first night we didn't here even one peep about Joe Biden and the second night. All we heard about was Joe Biden. It seemed as that your one of your takeaways. Oh he was the entire focus. This was about Joe Biden. He he is the front runner so that in the census typical but wasn't typical was for that front runner to to get it from all comers on all types of issues that go over maybe forty years of past ask virtually everyone on that stage had some kind of a gripe with Joe Biden and his record and his legacy. Maybe one big difference is that he was ready to fight back. So do you think that the first night was more about issues the second night more about Joe Biden or how did that work. It seemed to me like ideology dominated the first night because of the way that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren physician themselves against the moderates moderates in the field and this was much more about one person <hes> it was about the Vice President Khama Harris to a lesser degree because she was on stage and because of her performance she took some some heat but this was about prosecuting the case Joe Biden and it so happens that his career is varied enough that it can carry the weight of a whole lot of issues angst inside the Democratic Party Biden was looking repeatedly for cover under his work that he did with President Obama and the Obama Biden years but even that isn't necessarily safe ground anymore because the Democratic Party has moved so quickly yeah exactly when you're talking about <hes> Joe Biden and you're talking about the Democratic Party and looking forward eventually. You'RE GONNA have to narrow this field and it's going to you have to be looking toward president trump more like it was in the first debate instead of the second debate. He's the front runner but still and that's what that's what you know. Primary politics is all about but you know looking forward forward to the next one. How do we make field smaller? We will narrow the field before September. A._B._C.'s going to air that debate in September and the qualifications are basically flee twice as hard to achieve. You're going to have two percent of the pulse. Instead of one percent one hundred thirty thousand unique donors instead of sixty five thousand <hes> as of now only seven or eight candidates are assured of a spot. I think a few more likely to get in but it's exceedingly likely that half of the folks that we saw this week will not be seen again on a Democratic primary debates sage that added to the sense divergency and I think it closes out this initial introductory chapter and opens a new one where the after Labor Day the field of choices will be narrowed for voters okay so let's talk about about narrowing that field and the ones that you see are kind of the stand ups yeah you start with Biden and I mentioned Harris as well Cory Booker of course awesome is is going to be fine. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to to progressive superstars of both of them advanced pretty easily I as mayor people to judge <hes> on Beto O'Rourke mark L. Over lower-profile with their polling numbers or are enough to get them forward after that it starts to get Dicey for folks <hes> right now. Andrew Yang is on the cusp. He's very close to the polling that he sees as Leon Castro but he's not a short of it and then there's a whole a whole range of folks that need something of a Miracle Marianne Williamson a big star this week. She's we're close in the fundraising threshold. We'll see she had a big spike. Because of the interest others including Tulsi Gabbard go down going down the list of people like Michael Michael Bennett and John Hickenlooper. They're really not in the BALLPARK and <hes> short of miraculous turnarounds in the next couple of weeks. It's not going to happen for them. That's why these as debates were so important. This is the last best shot for a whole range of candidates to to to make clear to voters why they belong in the conversation Okay Rick. Thanks as always thanks this week once again. Gun violence ripped across America and Chicago neighborhood to mothers were killed in a drive by shooting. Two employees were gunned down Walmart and Mississippi OV- coming on the heels of a deadly shooting California garlic festival last weekend. It's highlighted an issue already in the forefront of these debates policy addressing gun violence Chris Brown is the CO president of the Brady Campaign leading nonprofit gun safety organization organization. She spoke this week with A._B._C.'s Devon Dwyer about some of the twenty twenty candidates positions on gun safety gun violence is front and center in this political debate eight. What can be done to prevent it? Are there plans out there on the democratic side that can be passed quickly and make a difference Chris Great to see you a lot of options on the table right now. Oh I give us a sense of the spectrum that these candidates policy proposals on guns <hes> range they range a wide variety variety actually all of the candidates at some level had embraced some aspects of gun violence prevention. I think the two candidates running the strongest platforms are both <hes> Senator Harris and Senator Booker and they take different approaches Senator Harris released a plan that really calls for executive action that says that if Congress doesn't take action to comprehensively address gun violence prevention in her first ninety days this president then at the end of that time she will issue executive orders to address a range of issues from background check expansion to enforcement of laws to ensuring that things like the boyfriend loophole that allow unmarried domestic abusers still to obtain guns in too many states without a background check. She will take action to ask you about that breath yeah she. She's been applauded for that proposal truly a bold one and sets her apart from some of the other candidates. Do you think that using executive action to do things like expanding background checks can withstand legal scrutiny in something that Brady say ever suggested to President Obama to do during his presidency. That's a great question yes we've analysed analyzed all of these proposals and we support everything that has put forward and Senator Harris's proposal and we do think that would withstand legal scrutiny and there is precedent for this <hes> President Obama actually did at take executive action around the issue of gun violence prevention. He issued orders albeit in the waning days of his presidency. Unfortunately president trump has up ended many of those within the first sixty days of him taking office wanted to ask you about Joe Biden who served alongside <hes> President Obama as you know. Obama vigorously attacked the N._R._A.. Faulted them for blocking many of the proposals that you've put on the table. I was struck by something Joe. Biden set set our enemy is the gun manufacturers not the N._R._A.. What did you make of that? I absolutely one hundred percent agree in West. Look the reality is that the N._R._A.. Does Not Represent average gun on hers in this country a exist to make more prophets for the gun industry and that's exactly what Joe Biden who with all of his experience knows very well and during his time in the Senate he was a champion for things like the assault weapons ban. Did I did want to ask you before we let you go Chris about two candidates who have previously had a ratings with the N._R._A.. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York Congressman Tim Ryan also had them previously they both both now come out in support of some gun safety measures but they claim that having that edge with the N._R._A.. At least previously will help them give them an advantage vantage tackle the gun violence issue. You think that's fair. I'm not sure I would agree with that statement. I think as a gun violence prevention organization from what I would say about their records is that there is always room for people to evolve around this issue certainly both candidates now their positions czar entirely consistent with what Brady supports I think there is no inconsistency These days news comes out of Washington so fast. It can be hard to keep up. I just don't think this is going to play out the way everybody thinks it's going to play out. We're getting a Giancarlo prediction look. We need special music for this. I'm A._B._C. News Political Legal Director Rick Klein join me along with A._B._C.'s chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl every week as we break down the facts and turn to Washington insiders with questions on the powerhouse politics podcasts podcast GonNa talk to me. I'm looking forward to listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. Welcome back to the perspective. I'm Cheri Preston President trump pushing back against accusations this week that he is racist following comments he made about Baltimore and Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings raises person there is anywhere in the world when conman who I've known you know my business life because I had to deal with torture but I got along without dropped now. He's the president claims. Many African Americans believe he is helping the area however ever A._B._C. News White House correspondent Karen Travers reports on a new poll killing a different story. She talked about it with our Brad Milkey A._B._C.. Daily podcast to start here. What issue you always knew would be issue at this debate was president trump and race? Little kids literally woke up this weekend turned on the T._V. and saw their present calling their city the town of Baltimore nothing more than a home for wraps. This was no accident not from the moderators asking the questions not from the candidates bashing the White House. It's this hot button issue because of course of what president trump is said recently about Baltimore about people of Color and a Lotta people will tell you that is no accident either told them the things that he could do we need this country needs healing. There's so much division in America along racial lines. You're is worse than years ago well this week. President trump has been on a mission to say these comments are not racist. He's not racist. He visited Jamestown Virginia on the four hundredth anniversary of America's first meeting of Representatives the birthplace of democracy in the western hemisphere also the place where enslaved Africans. I arrived on on these shores but some observers say this event kind of shook up the president's in might have caused him to read night. Some of the flames that his congressional allies have been scurrying to put out A._B._C.'s Karen Travers is at the White House and Karen this was supposed to be a tour and a speech what happened you know the president was down there to mark the four hundredth anniversary of legislative democracy he he noted the nation's early history of slavery but not in the audience for that event were two dozen African American state representatives who skipped the event in protest because because they're upset about the president's attacks recently on the so-called squad on Elijah Cummings right here in Virginia your predecessors there was also a moment where a state legislator interrupted the president's remarks had assigning shouted. You can't send goes back this would have gone. I think relatively unnoticed maybe picked up by some cable networks but not a big headline until the president talked about it after he got back to the White House and slam the media for making a big deal about it banking down from these attacks on Congressman Elijah Coming Representative Oversight dimity and start doing oversight on Baltimore. I think there's a tendency to frame these fights that the president has as a war of words or a fight between the president and his subject of his tweets or statements but it was the president who started this brad going back and forth. I mean it's hard to see how this is a back and forth when it was the president to started this seemingly out of the blue <music> new poll Quinnipiac poll came out today saying that eighty percent of blacks think you're racist. Fake News doesn't report it properly people like you at the the White House A._B._C.'s cure phillips actually asked the president about a new Quinnipiac poll in which more than half of Americans say he is racist. Eighty percent of black Americans say this and he kind of brushed it off the president has said that his attacks on Elijah Cummings or helping him politically and the same time though when the president was asked essentially. Why are you doing doing this? He said there's no strategy. I have no strategy zero. Strategy Reality is there is a strategy and its strategy. He thinks he's woking victor. I'm helping myself because I'm pointing out the tremendous corruption despite poll numbers showing that this is turning off women voters that this is I turn off independent voters and those are the voters the president's going to need to win reelection. He is banking on locking down his base and getting them fired up. This is not strategy that expands upon his numbers from two thousand Sixteen Karen Travers at the White House thank you thanks Brad. This month marks two years since the deadly unite the right rally in Charlottesville Virginia Terry McAuliffe was the governor of Virginia at the time he called a state of emergency as those protests got out of hand. He's out with a new book called Beyond Charlottesville Amaechi reflects on that day EH and the response from President Trump I don conversation with him this week. Part of which we will air on next week's show this week we talked about president trump's behavior and his the most recent attacks on Baltimore and Elijah Cummings when this all happened in the two years since then where do you think things have gone when you look at now with with Congressman Elijah Cummings and and the city of Baltimore rat infested we had you know <hes> criticisms of of the four Democratic Women in Congress Congress. Nothing is out saying that it is race but where do we stand when it comes to race two years people ask me all the time is the president racist and full disclosure. I've known him for twenty years. Yes he's racist because you can't say and do the things that he does. <hes> I mean his he's coming out party. which Charlottesville I mean that was a defining moment in our country in who we are as a nation I mean we're mosaic tile immigrants which makes a strong and he he just he came out and showed us who he was that day he was a supporter of in white nationalism and he continues to say that he about the squad telling them to go home with three of the four were born here in this great country? I think he wants to nation of of white nationalists. It is sad for our nation. Put Politics six aside. We're stronger when we're together and the thing with Elijah Cummings you know you know I think the guy like flips on Fox News and apparently that morning they'd had a story about all the more and you know he's such a simpleton. He watches us. He's mad at Elijah because he's going after his daughter of Anka Concha and you know he's mad because he going after the C._B._C.. Customer Border Patrol and he sees this on fact and he tweets away it. It's scary for the country country. It's sad for the country. It's why we're going to beat them. Coming up but is bad is Charlottesville was I was telling Sherry one of the good the things that actually came out of it was it ripped the scab off racism. I think for far too long and our country we believe that we had dealt with racism and everything was was okay. You know people had their reconciliation commission's. That's a waste of time to me. That's a bunch of white people sitting around talk and making themselves feel good. We have an inequality inequities in school today. As governor I worked hard and Richmond Norfolk and Petersburg Virginia. We have inferior schools in fear facilities abilities. We don't have the same quality teachers in all of our schools and that's racism so my point in the book and the last chapter and I work with John Lewis who does the forward for me and where do we go from here but until we deal with the inequities in school and Housing and healthcare delivery and a horribly racist criminal criminal justice system races is here and it's going to be prevalent and I think we need to face at as a country. Why do you think it's taken so long to to have these conversations about race? When you look how long ago the civil war was <hes> I and then you look you know Jim Crow following that but still will you know since there's been one hundred hundred fifty years? Why is it taken us so long to have these discussions good question and I go back to the point? I think people felt comfortable. People don't like to discuss race. I think until trump in the words racism you hadn't heard it has much calling people racist assist <hes> obviously we dealt with horrible situation that we had in this country during massive resistance in the Jim Crow Laws But since that point I think people wanted to to be comfortable. They didn't want to have these conversations. Honestly it is I say Charlottesville rip that scab off and people realized it's here. It's prevalent now for me in the last chapter of the book. Where do we go from here? I just don't like the Internet you'll find the book fascinating how we we lead up to it and what I did with the state police in my national guard and all the different stuff but I think you'll find it fascinating listen. We will horrible history in Virginia. We were the capital of the confederacy literacy. We had one of the worst slave trading facilities in the United States of America. We still have three hundred fifty eight monuments in Virginia. You know we have a handful to the revolutionary war started in Virginia member <hes> in Saint John's Church Gimme GimMe Gimme death by Patrick. It ended in Virginia the battle Yorktown. We have a couple statues. We have a couple of World War One the ward endo or we have a couple of World War Two <hes> three three hundred nearly sixty statues to the civil war. You know in many They were done during massive resistance. This is a direct shot at the African American community to say no. We are supreme. We are white and it's something has to be done about that. Coming up Selby's at American landmarks huge uptick in tourism.

I'm Sherry Preston coming up a young girl dream to play baseball but I the Grand Canyon or shoe bend and many of the countries preserved lands have become overwhelmed by crowds house in recent years experts point to interest in snapping the perfect instagram post as a reason for the huge jump in visitors to these areas A._B._C.'s Maggie Rulli visited some of the instagram the gramm hot spots to examine how thousands of visitors a day maybe wearing on these precious public land's. There's some of the most awe inspiring natural wonders in the country the Band the Grand Canyon Zion National Park and the wave O._M._G.. Were about to enter the wave so freaking incorporate some features from these two grams fighters come to here for hours of vacation stunning backdrops backdrops Moore millions of visitors with the promise of the perfect boost people are just standing so he's not really enjoying myself. Let's let's go home now. It is so so media gold mine but for some locations INSTA- popularity proving to be too much of a good thing social media has focused so much attention on particular places that they really are risk of being loved to death with visitors causing they were terrible damage during the recent California poppy blooms and Joshua Tree National Park. Some of our public lands are now threatened by overcrowding. We set set out to see how these national treasures are dealing with crowds being driven in part by social media horseshoe band was once a little little known spot in Arizona where locals would hang out to catch the sunset but almost overnight and overlooked at once-off four thousand visitors a year began seeing two two point two million visitors a year. That's over four thousand visitors a day. The explosion in crowds causing trash build up and safety concerns. We just love page Arizona a place dealing with his onslaught of tourism nowadays of the Grand Canyon the nose tourism really well. We're going to check out the North Rin which people tell us. This is supposed to be a little bit quieter. Holy smokes welcome to the Grand Canyon. Jerry Ginsburg has spent the last thirty years photographing the grabbing every single national park and many of our public lands one thing that makes me very sad is to see canyons and forests and trees that were formerly very very pristine just completely destroyed and with greater influx of people it creates more wear and tear and eventually given enough enough time they'll lose their scenic attractiveness for young and upcoming photographers and many of them use instagram as their medium. So why shouldn't they be given a chance to go take their instagram. Am I the same places that you were able to photos twenty twenty five years ago. I hope they all I hope they can do that and give them fresh interpretations they may have to go <music> out on their own and find new and different places to create original images right across from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon one of the busiest portions of this national park here we are in the North <unk> Thrim and complete solitude. That's where we met Chad Roseau who had just come from visiting horseshoe. Bend made us go. There was the whole instagram and this is completely different experience. How would you compare that to horseshoe bend versus northern Solitude Zoo and yet just two and a half hours in one state away Kazakhstan National Park only fifteen miles in diameter attracts four and a half million visitors a year? That's nearly two million more visitors than yellowstone receives at a fraction of the size. We're definitely having issues keeping alley. Ball dress has been with the National Park Service for nearly thirty years back in twelve. We had really no lines so if you had told me that I was going to be running a shuttle line I would have laughed. You know we started seeing more crowding around twenty thirteen and then it just kept going up from on their this line is still hundreds of people deep. The Park Ranger here tells us that it starts at about five forty five A._M.. And it stays this way all the way through two o'clock in the afternoon and despite the lines the shuttles and the heat everyone we met said they were having a great time especially at the narrows breathtaking river and that's one of the most popular attractions able to sell enjoy though it's crowded Houston to go around them earliest enjoy your time let them but not every instance famous location is open to Zion size crowns uh-huh. We're about to enter the lottery to see if we get to hike the way but we were told that we probably have a better chance of winning mega millions every year more than one hundred and fifty thousand goes into people apply to visit the wave a rock formation on the Arizona Utah border but just under ten thousand or selected with only twenty visitors her day the wave leave is one of the most restricted public lands in the U._S.. My daughter works for the Bureau of Land Management. He says the agency's considering opening the way for up to ninety six six permit holders per day. That's more than four hundred percent. The amount of people that were letting in now we're doing with the wave really is doing an environmental assessment. Can we in fact act increase the number without tipping that balance where solitude is lost. What are the dangers of this potentially spoiling oiling a beautiful place Taylor McKinnon from the center of Biological Diversity worries that the feature is already endangered at current use levels while exploring the trail railhead near the entrance to the wave tiller showed us one of the reasons why this area is so protected? Here's a great example of the soil crust. It's actually a live when it rains lanes that crust allows the the moisture to actually absorb and it's very sensitive to people and to being stepped on and here where old old footprints footprints have destroyed it coming up Bella Thorne opens up and reveals some offer deepest struggles and what she looks forward to on perspective after this.

Leaks my mom because I felt really taken advantage of threatening to leak her private photos. What really makes me uncomfortable about somebody having these photos of me and it was that it's not my choice to give it to them that that was really the most the most part that just made me feel seriously uncomfortable tweeting for too long? I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I'm expletive sick of it. How did you become such a rebel? I think a lot of <hes> wanting to know my father he was he was a rebel and quite crazy C._n._n.. Out there and did a lot of Bellas father died in a motorcycle crash when she was nine. How did your father's death effect not just your Really but you questions that never have answers to the the constant seeking of acceptance that I'll never have the constant need for affection that I'll never forget and so I think that's probably where my rebellion comes from the emptiness following his death described in her latest book part Poetry Part Stream of consciousness the the life of a wannabe mogul mental disarray. What's the Real Bella Thorne? She's me she's not girl in that book. She's just like you know sitting right adhere. She's in pain this girl in this book <hes> yes I would say so.

She said she was also bullied. For speaking Spanish growing up cuban-american just one of many painful chapters that shaped who she is today was it because I was molested my whole life exposed to sex at such a young age that feels the most natural to offer the world or is it because I was raised to think I wasn't good enough. The abuse abuse lasted. She says through till adolescents. How did the young you perceive what was happening definitely Stockholm Syndrome? Oh Yeah for sure sure I mean when you're raised with. Someone and you don't know that it's wrong. It's just very like <hes> an everyday occurrence like no big deal <hes> and so that's kind of how I treated it like no big deal. Some survivors. I've interviewed have told me that they have angered towards towards the adults who couldn't protect them. I think that you have anger towards society in general this is something that is literally happened in everyone's doorstep thorn explores the reasoning behind why so many victims of sexual abuse remained silent convince someone of my tragedies because society makes wchs are are victims feel like villains and therefore the girl never walks into the police station and really tells the story twenty million fans follow her every move on instagram her life now an open book do feel pressure to put out a certain few image of yourself that one hundred percent yeah I think as as we all do well you know <hes>.

I'm Sherry Preston wasted finally this week the story of a young girl from Toronto who has refused to take no for an answer as she chases her baseball dream Oh and also the day she got to meet. One of our heroes A._B._C.'s Tom last week the Toronto Blue Jays hosted a fan and they're v._I._P.. Section one who's a little younger than their usual usual guests. Her name is Ashland Jolicoeur. She's eight years old from Whitby Canada near Toronto and she loves baseball. No matter where and <music> Ashland's a second baseman and fielding wiz she was invited to meet the Jays after a video of her making diving catches went viral that video which which has close to five million views was posted to social media with the caption Ashland was told the girls shouldn't be playing baseball. Here's her response. The apparent at one of her teammates didn't tell her father Dan therion girls should stick to softball is a conversation. I was having one on one with this parent that <hes> the girls from say baseball and softball is where it's at for girls. Dan didn't tell Ashland at first even though he knew she wouldn't get discouraged even free told her about it a lot when it happened. They wouldn't have stopped there but eventually he decided to after that video went viral care but they should they make me feel a the video was posted to the social media page of baseball for all too. Many girls are told they can't play baseball and so we're changing that narrative in going into communities in helping Stark Girls Baseball Program Justin Seagull is the founder of baseball for all after seeing a couple of videos of Ashland. She knew she'd fit right in can see the passion and the skill and how much he loves the game through the videos. She's always always practicing and that excites us.

Regardless of skill level often not even being allowed to try out you know if you can play you can play and we want our girls to to know that we believe in them and you know they don't need to fit into a box and they should follow whatever passion the end unfortunately Ashland and baseball for all received some backlash on social media after the video went viral. It's shocking to me reading the social media comments of how many people think we're lying that she was still at she can't play can see from the video but she's phenomenal. Eh That's when the Blue Jays stepped in the <hes> you know a young head a young girl who loves baseball so much and just see the passion that she has for the game was really exciting for us. Jessica Beard helped organize the event for her at the Ballpark. It's not just about getting them tickets but but we want to make their experience at the ballpark special and memorable you know. How do we welcome them into our home? How do we give them? You know that access then we knew that she had a passion for Vlad to Ashland and her father were invited to attend the Blue Jays game against the Cleveland Indians where she met rookie sensation sation Vladimir Guerrero junior really clutching meet them. I got to watch their batting practice and set in right by the home team. Eddie Dugout Ursuline doesn't mind the attention she's received since becoming a social media star is cool. It's like the same when when people don't watch me they watch me and Dan hopes her story will continue to inspire athletes of any age or gender in any sport we received messages since <hes> video went out on comparison with boys and girls saying you know that it's inspiring their their kids to ah go for it.

This is perspective a closer look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed I'M CHERI PRESTON COMING UP president trump lashing out against the ongoing impeachment inquiry against him apron tried to impeach me from today. I got elected and you know what they fail and this is the easiest one of all because this one is based on one conversation with part two all of our conversation with Rachel Den Hollander the first woman to publicly accuse Larry Nassar of abuse completely changed though I was at the moment I hit send and I knew that was coming what I didn't anticipate where the good news redemption that's come out of it and one of our reporters gets inside and look at one of the world's top. US Law Enforcement Academy me our mission is to increase the survivor ability in the real world our data's our mission when we're going through the train which is training very serious all ahead on perspective president trump this week ramping up attacks the impeachment inquiry. They've been trying to impeach coming from the day I got elected and you know what they failed and this is the easiest one of all because this one is based on one conversation the president president also calling on both Ukraine and China to investigate the business dealings of former vice president Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden for the latest on the impeachment and everything else going on in politics. Let's bring ABC News Political Director recline. Let's start with what we found out this week about the impeachment inquiry and where we are no. There's a lot of stuff but let's talk about who testified testified on Capitol Hill and the text messages and maybe where we go from here well we have the to the to Ukraine Kurt Volker testify on Capitol Hill as part part of that testimony a series of texts exchanges from top. US diplomats has now been released to Congress into the public in these top officials discussing amongst themselves what appears by all rights to be a quid pro quo that was offered to the Ukrainian government where they would get things that they wanted like defense like a meeting with President Trump in exchange change for something big aid package they would have to actually investigate and start investigation vice president Joe Biden and his son and what we we see it's a bit of a bank shot because it has the diplomats talking about other conversations off line some of the some of the folks clues trump loyalists are saying no no no there is no quid pro quo. Oh but they are talking about it. As if there is a condition here and regardless it is it's new insight into the pressure that was being applied both publicly and privately on Ukraine rain to investigate Joe Biden when we look forward politically on all of this. What do you see everything keeps coming out and it's new and it's investigated by different committees cities in the house. Is there a time line. We're looking at for for a possible vote on any of this well. I talked to one top house. Democrats really has to be by the end of the year which is difficult because there's so much new information. This is not a committee that is that is simply a processing information and deciding what to do with it politically. They're actively investigating. They're bringing up new witnesses and you have a president who seems to add fuel to the fire going in front of the cameras on Thursday to say yes I would like Ukraine to investigate the Biden's and I'd like China to do the same so he is being investigated created in an impeachment inquiry for trying to pressure the Ukrainians to investigate a whole rival and then he comes out and says it and says by the way another country should do it as well so all of that adds to the complicated mess that the Democrats are dealing with it may also speak to their urgency though they recognize that if you're going to get this done it has to be expeditiously viciously. They can't let it get muddled up into many other side stories and they just have to do it. Pursue it what did top Republicans who you are talking to think of that news conference difference with President Trump this week well. It blows their minds yeah. I was just a follow up of what I just asked you. Sir We have the president of Finland inland. Ask Him a question. I have one for my just wanted to follow up on the one that I asked you. which did you hear that you want you hear me? Ask Him a question I will but it might have been you a long answer. Ask Ask this gentleman a question. Don't be rude no sir. I don't WanNa be rude. I just wanted you to have a chance to answer the question that I asked everything. It's a whole hoax and you know who's playing into the hoax. People like you and the fake news media that we have in this country and I say in many cases the corrupt media because you've corrupt so many of them are are willing to say you know what what the president did. It isn't great but it doesn't it isn't quite what you say it is and it's not impeachable but if he comes out and says no it is what I say it is or to apply new pressure. You're playing into the other side's argument and it makes it that much harder for for the president's loyalists to maintain that loyal front when you're looking at the totality lady of this and you see a president continuing to engage in this conduct conduct now isn't really in question there on the transcript is there with the president saying hanging out loud in front of cameras in front of the world. We know that it's against the law to get campaign help from a foreign government the president once again as with when he said the Russians if you're listening to go get Hillary's emails. He is actively soliciting the help of a foreign government. He says it's route corruption. He says is to get to the bottom of investigations but it undeniably Joe Biden is the front runner for the Democratic nomination and that's what's so stunning about all of this. I mean if you listen to a lot of talk from from those supporters of the President what what they're saying. Is You know this is all about the Biden's. This is all about you know the this investigation but really that's almost beside the point because what's the key in all of this is what was actually released in the transcript itself that's right and I think the Democrats challenges to stick to that because because there are so many other directions you can take this with cabinet. Officials people like Rudy Giuliani throwing out other pieces of this the have the evidence already operating writing off the same set of evidence and there's really no good way to spin those facts and the president's even making it harder for himself to keep it keep it focused on his defense Rudy Rudy Giuliani I I remember so vividly after nine eleven him coming out and and and giving one of the most moving lines that anyone had said after the towers fell and somebody asked him how many firefighters they lost it. He said the numbers will be more than any of us want to know and it was it was really moving and his trajectory victory over the past you know almost twenty years what are members of the GOP saying about Rudy Giuliani now. They have a hard time explaining it. I mean they don't really recognize Nice. What Rudy Giuliani says either they also will point to the fact that we have a very nontraditional president in the White House and here's to be servicing him but that really Guiliani and this Rudy Tehrani don't seem to have much in common political loyalties notwithstanding. There was a reputation that he developed over a long career. New York tapped by nine eleven that that very much stands at odds with the reputation that is playing on cable television night after night. ABC political recline always love talking to you every week. Have a good one. Thank you Vermont Senator and presidential hopeful. Bernie Sanders is recovering after undergoing a procedure to clear a blocked artery campaign canceled upcoming events immediately following the news. ABC News Senior National Respondent Terry Moran has more doing rates It's exciting Bernie Sanders wife. Jane Sanders is speaking speaking out about the presidential hopefuls health. I mean he looks more energetic man. He has been standing in front of the Las Vegas Hospital where Sanders is treated for a blocked locked artery. She says he's doing better but you wouldn't comment on whether the seventy eight year old senator suffered a heart attack and a block in one artery and they put into spence. It's very very common. procedure sanders was taken to a hospital on Tuesday night after a closed-door campaign event in Las Vegas. He was complaining of chest pains James here at the event asking for assistance from an aide. Our favorite was it's been a long day but now sanders's wife says he's on the men and he'll be back to his intense schedule sooner rather than later as for his campaign potential positive sign. He's resuming a one point three million dollar advertising push in Iowa which had been abruptly cancelled on the day sanders was hospitalized in this woman so now the question for voters is Ken Bernie Sanders do this job. He's determined to show that he can. He has a loyal basis support. He'll need more than that. He plans on attending that October. HCT Fifteenth debated as he says he's a fighter. It was an extraordinary moment in Dallas this week police officer Amber Geiger who was white convicted of murdering her neighbor both Amazon who is black inside his apartment which she mistakenly thought was her apartment. She was sentenced to a decade in prison. Some spoke out saying hang. It wasn't enough time. How many of us does it take to get justice but inside the courtroom. That's what was extraordinary. When both John's brother Brandt grant had these words for Amber Geiger. Wasn't GonNa say this in front of my family or anyone but uh. I don't even want you to go to jail. I want the best for you then. He followed that up with a question as possibly but can I said yes the two of them the white police officer and the brother of the black man she had killed embraced. I think is is to crash on TV. Best thing I want you to coming up continuing our conversation with Rachel denhellender first person to publicly accused Larry Nassar of abuse. I use on prospective after this these days news comes out of Washington so fast. It can be hard to keep up. I just don't think this is going to play out the way everybody thinks it's going to play out. We're getting a giancarl prediction special music for this. I'm ABC News Political Director Rick Klein join me along with ABC's chief. White House correspondent Jonathan Karl every week as we break down the facts back and turn to Washington insiders tough questions on the powerhouse politics podcasts or you're gonNA talk to Moan. I'm looking forward to listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. Welcome back to perspective Sherry Preston last week we brought you the first part of our interview with Rachel Denhellender who who publicly accused USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of abuse. She was the first person to step forward and give her name. We asked her what it was like. Sitting through all all the impact statements that the trial and being the last woman testify when it came out were you surprised by the number of people who had set it happen them to no not at all and that was honestly one of the most painful things over those sixteen years was knowing that wasn't the first and that Larry wasn't going to stop and feeling absolutely powerless to do anything about it. The right dynamics had to be in place to be able to stop him and what we know now is that was exactly right. Women were reporting for decades. The earliest aced reports from two children that we were in nineteen ninety-seven almost all of us were abused after nineteen ninety-seven and so for years women and children were reporting what Larry was is doing and the adults in authority or mishandling those reports they were silencing the victims. They were burying those reports and the most painful part in many ways looking back and realizing as a seventeen seventeen year old. I was right. There was nothing I could do. MSU and US edgy put me put us in a position where we had to relinquish every shot of privacy and dignity I in ways that I never should have had to in order to get the story out just to be able to stop a Predator and a Predator in in what happened to you guys was was was so public but yet the thousands of young women you know and men that had happened to every year that you don't hear about. That's what is you know. Oh really powerful about your accounts is that you're trying to say throughout the book. You know this is something that yeah I speaking up and my putting you know putting my feelings. Secondary is something that could help other people. That's really important. That is my goal with. This book really is to give that voice. you know very rarely. Do we ever have to confront what sexual abuse looks like what it does to the victim. In the moment of abuse how that abuse is able to take place and the devastation that followed follow and the cost of speaking of to stop your abuser. We don't see that very often and because I didn't have a choice with how public to make it. There was no other way to do this. my my desire is to be able to hold that up for the world to see and understand if this is what it cost me understand what it is costing all of the survivors who don't have what I had who don't have the legal education who don't have a detective and a prosecutor who are passionate about the truth. You don't have the family support you know. Look at what it costs and be there the next do it better the next time when you finally did hit. Send you know. Y- things had been going okay for you pretty well. You know it was like hey you know we got this. We're going in this legal front. I got this you know Nice Guy. I got the Beautiful Children I'm in Louisville. I'm happy you know I've put it behind me and then putting it all forward. Is this the direction you thought your life would go in when you hit send yes awesome no I understood enough of the dynamics of abuse on what it was going to take that I anticipated I anticipated sexual assault being dinner conversation on international scale because because of who Larry was and the people surrounding him and so I anticipate it all of that the attacks that come with it you know the pain that comes with it the level of detail that I was going to have to disclose over and over and over again and just the reality that you don't get to take any of that back. It completely changed who I was at the moment I hit send and I knew that was coming. what I didn't anticipate where the good things and the redemption that's come out of it and so I am overwhelmingly grateful but I still feel everyday not just the weight of my abuse but the weight of so many others who haven't gotten that support and that's one thing that I hope that people see in this book again is that they look at this and they say they if it was like this for her. What's it like for all of the people in my community that have suffered this way. Who Don't have that support? What was it like sitting through all the victim impact statements and you were the very end What was it like sitting those days. I mean because you know for people watching. It was painful. I can't imagine what it was like for you. It was one of the most difficult and yet beautiful experiences. It was incredibly beautiful. because these were the women that I had cried over for years that I wanted to save and couldn't and getting to finally meet them to bear witness to what they had been through to listen to. Their stories was just an incredible gift at the same time. It was devastating because the destruction is huge to all of us. The destruction of sexual abuse doesn't just go away and knowing that the vast vast majority of US came after those I reports of Larry Abusing children in nineteen ninety seven when you sit in a courtroom for seven days and you hear hundreds of women women tell how their lives have just been destroyed and you know that almost none of them had to be her had one person done the right thing over decades. Just one want almost all of us could have been saved. That's an incredible weight and we should feel that weight or what do you have to say to. US A gymnastics now now and to Michigan State University. I am saying the same thing now that I said to them. Three years ago and I find that very discouraging that we're having the same conversations now now and my request to them is simply what require my own children to do when they have hurt someone admit what went wrong identify the problems and then admit the damage that it did. That's what I require my two year old to do. You know I am sorry that I did. I am sorry that it hurt you this way. What can I do to make you get better. How do I repair that relationship. If I can ask my children my toddler's to take those steps. I don't think it's too much to ask grown adults who are in in charge of campus and athletes safety to do what a toddler can do but here we are three years later and we're still having this conversation. What do you think about the actual truths all of this because I think when you get to the end you go that is what the one characteristic that needed to be put out. There is just that five letter word truth it is and that's what so many of us are afraid to hear it safer not to know the truth but it's also a lot easier. It's easier not to speak it and it's easier not to care it's much easier to villain is the victim or to believe that they've been and overreacting or they just gotta be up there on it so to speak but the truth is what we need. The truth is what ends this. The truth is what helps us. Do it better the next time and the truth isn't something we should be afraid of. It's something we should embrace because it really brings freedom for all of us will your book is called. What is a girl worth. And how important was it for you to you. Do a children's book as well because you know you've got this is just you know reads like a novel but it's real story and then the then the book for for little girls as well. I mean you have kids yourself. what are you want them to take out of all this you know when I was when I was working through the proofs of of that book I had my my little girls come in they were three and four at the time I had them. Come in and look at the pictures and they said what's your book called Mummy as well. It's called how much is a little girl worth. I I said what do you think the answers and my daughter's turned around there in their princess nightgowns and they turned around and they said everything. I said you're right. That's the answer you are are worth. Everything and that's the question that all of us have to ask as we make decisions and that's something that I really wanted to bring out in the memoirs. This isn't just a book for survivors. This isn't justice for people walking alongside survivors. This is a book for everyone because those questions of what am I worth whereas my identity and how do I make decisions. What's my Matrix Beatrix for decision making. Those are ultimate questions that all of us face no matter our background no matter what we've been through. I WANNA put those questions out there for conversation. Let's start having that discussion. How do you feel about gymnastics now. I feel very conflicted my experience in the gym. was was beautiful. Oh I loved it. I loved what I learned from that sport. I have a daughter who wants to be in gymnastics. I would love for her to have the life lessons that I learned from the sport but the reality is that the sport is so so inbred with abusers and abusive coaching dynamics that right now is safe place for children anyone who goes up the ranks within USA gymnastics in is going to compete has to compete under that umbrella they have to participate in a system that isolates children from their parents that wants complete control over their athletes and that really believes they have a publicity problem not an abuse problem you. SAG has not identified one abusive coach in the last three years. They have not been able to point to one coach and say we shouldn't have had this person coaching coaching or this person's coaching dynamic was abusive and that puts every child still in the organization at risk if you can't even admit and identify what abuse looks like you cannot not prevent it exactly. We've got the Olympics coming up and it's something that's so made a little girls. Watch yeah just love the I mean the it's you know every yes every person in in the country watches it and loves it but Rachel. I really want to thank you again. I because I thought your book was very honest and true and it's clear that that you know. This is something that took a lot to for you to come forward. It's clear that your spirituality means a lot to you and you know Sodas family and and so does truth so thank you so much thank you coming up the Tripoli virus how it's spreading across states in the US less on perspective after this what if you can make your work take less work you can with capterra compare thousands of software options read lead reviews and instantly narrow your favorites.

I'm Sherry Preston police in the US us are always in the spotlight every move analyzed and evaluated when split-second decisions have to be made a matter of life or death many men and women join. The ranks ranks every year. ABC's Alec Stone was given a rare opportunity to go inside. The gates of one of the largest toughest. Police Academies in the world at a train for a day is one of the recruits Chris each early on Wednesday morning. This son has yet to come up. The sound of leaf blowers lawn mowers fill the air. I've been told to report to the California Cornea Highway Patrol Academy in Sacramento by six thirty. Am to become a recruit for the day. We'll good morning. It's about six o'clock in the morning grabbing having some coffee here and then heading over to the academy and at this point I have only a vague idea of what the day home we're going to do physical activity driving shooting adding but Kinda got that feeling of not knowing what's GonNa go on today. I know the drill instructors it'd be yelling at us and and kind of feeling the feelings of being at the Academy to California Highway Patrol is one of the world's best trained law enforcement agencies even if you don't live in California you probably know the HP maybe from the nineteen seventies eighty show chips haunch and John Highways of southern California in their tight fitting Tan uniforms three or four northbound. CHP has appeared in numerous TV shows and movies he iconic big Golden Lynn Blue Star on the side of the black and white patrol cars and motorcycles in real life the CHP is the largest state police agency in the country handling the roads and on security at all California state buildings and today. I'm about to get a feel of what it's like to train to become a CHP officer every morning just after seven am cadets appear at the academy's main building to raise the flags the American state and see HP flags cadets wearing their blue shirts instead of Tan the CHP academy is an intensive twenty eight week live in training center recruits live live in dorms in an environment that mimics the military they can be as young as twenty one or as old as thirty five some have arrived never having handled a weapon in order marched in formation. It is here where they will learn the skills of becoming a police officer sergeant well. I'm in charge of the staff off. The academy is four hundred it. Fifty seven acres one hundred sixty eight dorm rooms can hold close to five hundred recruits. Gdansk it thirteen hundred hours of instruction wife wife might not let go and like that I become a cadet told to get in formation with the real cadets who were already marching remember. I have no training yet. We're in Formation Chin mimicking what the cadets are doing around us and in the process. Most of us are getting it wrong and the drill instructors seemed always notice. You're different than the others fix yourself herself to cadets get pulled out of formation. They're told to do pushups jumping jacks. It's clear from the beginning that anything that stands out will become a target of the drill instructors that will carry on throughout the rest of the day so I hope you guys hold onto that take that to heart pay attention to that welcome welcome to chp a cat and I find out quickly. Just how tough it's about to get marching over to physical training it before we change in a workout gear. We're told to line up outside the gym at attention. Yes Sir all right. We we did it but something made me start to smile failed to get rid of that smile before the drill instructors but you re telling jokes folks real. Why are you happy man. Mr Stone you be funny. Go based on no sir. Are you sure yes sir to drill. Instructors in my face spit flying from there. It's into the gym to really begin. That's okay star. We'll let them know that you're a special child. Your special stand out very well. It took everything in me to stop smiling. Pulling a fitness instructor walks into the gym and dumps a box full of t shirts on the floor. Mine is somewhere in a big pile. It has my name on the back that name would be fodder for drill instructors to yell at us all day long we changed into. HP shirts and then it was to the gym for Physical Training quarterback then it turned into a cycle of push ups jumping Jacks burpee squat sit ups bicycle icicle kicks and more of those all over again to the point where my muscles just couldn't take it anymore and we had to do it. Only for a fraction of time the real cadets doing cute. We did more pushups more squats than we could take. Brad's ask before run on the track and then the obstacle course outside in the rain sometimes jumping over a wall jumping hurdles side shuffling through a maze more hurdles and then monkey bars that we got to skip because it was raining we yell out. Our Name and then go circuit Ed stone over the wall and through the rest my legs tight from the workout in the gym out of breath and a little bit embarrassed about my time but the most demanding of the physical fitness was done for the day it's by no means all about physical fitness during the cadets time at the academy they train on sixty five different learning domains including emergency medical response Spanish language training emergency. NC driving shooting and law I up for US learning enforcement tactics how to react on a high stress call we would consider force on force training. We give the cadets actual actual training equipment that replicates the actual equipment they will wear in the field today you guys will have firearms we run through two scenarios in areas in which cadets have to decide how to react use words de escalation techniques weather makes sense to draw a weapon or go hands on in this scenario. There's a man with a knife into his throat inside the DMV cadets retold the hold him at gunpoint until he puts down that knife then it's onto weapons training our mission send is to increase the survivor ability in the real world our data's our mission when we're going through the training so I take his training very serious. We briefed on range rules and what to do if there's an emergency nearest trauma centers. UC Davis I strap on a bullet resistant vast ear protection then I get to meet officer Tamra McCormick so you can shoot them. All you can shoot one. It's completely up to you. Shoot them all okay so we're GONNA start with a pistol. The duty weapon I then to the rifle that's in each patrol oh car and then finally the shotgun next up driving where cadets learn how to drive emergency vehicles defensively and at high speeds uh-huh. I go out onto once called. The skit track where it's wet in the patrol cars spin out in the driver's seat. I learned how to recover a car. That's spinning so counter steer when you're going it turns out that we do a couple of three sixties and we had out in a somber moment each Wednesday they marched in Formation Xintai. Chp Fountain in the middle of Campus and aims of two hundred thirty one CHP officers who have died in the line of duty are on that Fountain Cadet spent time shining signing the plaques once a week this is truly the most sacred ground for California Control Officer and then they marched back to class their schedules often have them working on lessons until ten Dan or eleven at night the rapid three or four in the morning for physical training. It's all part of becoming a CHP the officer Michael Maze as from Whittier California. He's part of the junior class of the academy right now. currently week eleven out of Twenty Nine Meza has a very very personal reason for becoming a police officer two years ago he was in Las Vegas. The route ninety one music festival when a gunman opened fire killing fifty gate victims people trying to help doing the best they can sometimes not being enough. He was that moment he says led him to. WanNa become a California highway patrol officer officer. I want to be able to help people. I want to run towards the threat as I learned. The academy is by no means easy. It has a thirty five percent attrition attrition rate and before cadets even make it to the academy only one point five percent to apply get accepted last year fourteen thousand people applied to the academy me and only a small fraction got in hoping to one day where the Tan and blue uniform of the California Highway Patrol for perspective. I'm Alex Stone Own. ABC News in Sacramento California coming up college athletes getting paid when what happened and what it could mean for the the NC Double A. on perspective after this have a dream but don't know where to begin. I didn't want him. He Limited looking for wisdom for women. Who've already been there you will oh constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself welcome to ABC's no limits. I'm your host Rebecca Jarvis and each week. We're talking to the game. Changing women about success lessons learned along the way and of course the worst advice. I really thought about this worst advice ever you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on Apple podcasts casts or your favorite podcast APP this is perspective from ABC News. I'm Sherry Preston California Governor Gavin newsom signed a bill this week allowing athletes to make money from endorsements prompting a challenge from the NCAA the first of the nation law will also permit student athletes elites to hire agents all move is received some pushback basketball hall of Famer Kareem abdul-jabbar Brad Milkey on ABC's start here podcast why he believes leaves. This is a step in the right direction. Sports have a ton of laws on and off the field. Most of the off field ones revolve around this. This core idea that student athletes are just that students first athletes second. They're amateurs. They don't take paychecks. California declare that whole concept is about to be the illegal governor Gavin newsom actually Sinus Bill as part of a show from Lebron. James uninterrupted the shop. It's going to change inch college sports for the better in the rule. Basically let's college athletes signed endorsement deals so if a college athlete does a shoe commercial or wants to be in a video game emerged just wants to appear at the local car dealership for a signing event like the college cannot punish them the NC Double A. which governs college athletics across the country they he's still potentially can so we called up somebody who would have made just a bit of money when he was in college. Kareem abdul-jabbar played basketball for UCLA before of course going on to be an NBA be a hell of famer and eventually the recipient of a National Medal of freedom so Mr Abdul Jabbar. Thanks for being here. What was your reaction to this decision. I have to say it's about time. College athletes have been exploited for very long island about time. Now change the classic argument. Here is the students they don't get paid. They get a free education. They get room. They get bored with the famous or not. Why do you think that model is broken. College athletics is big business and the people who put the people in the seats. You know the the the football and basketball players they get nothing what room board and tuition that's a joke the gentleman who runs the NC two A. several million dollars a year. It's really a travesty. I think and I I. I'm not saying that you have to make college athletes wealthy but they should have a fair share of the revenue that they are producing amateur athletics takes a big business and the athletes are being exploited for our. Gm May cover story the UCLA gymnasts whose floor routines scored a perfect ten the judges and the Internet bringing joy to everyone who watched plays welcome Caitlyn but like all the student athletes would be making money here right. It'd just the superstars would be getting endorsement deal so I got to imagine. There's a softball player or divert who says the football team already gets treated like their superheroes on campus now how they're going to have money and power as well like does this just exaggerate the disparity. I don't think it's GONNA exaggerate. I think the people on a softball team should be thankful that the guys on the football team and the basketball team are bringing in all this money so they can get their education and hopefully they can get the some of that money that the the university makes it title nine does require there be equal opportunities but it sounds like you're saying you know millions of dollars are going somewhere might as well go to athletes even if it's a group above them and the NC Double A. and the PAC twelve conference both came out against this rule and said this makes it confusing for student athletes and technically they could still tell everyone when you're not eligible if you if you sign these contracts but this does not take effect for another four years lots and lots of time to bargain Kareem Abdul Jabaar makes so much for the call burst onto from ABC News.

"Let me see news. This is perspective closer. Look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed. I'm sherry preston coming up. President trump discusses the trade war and russia g. Seven summit is a proud person. Would i invite him. I would certainly invite him whether or not he could come psychologically. I think that's a tough thing from two officials. Warn about the potentially deadly dangers of beeping. I was pretty shocked to find out that this activity that's promoted safer safer literally almost killed and we'll talk about aging with the creator of sex and the city houses the way that works and jobs aren't permanent the fees or even sixty can be a time when you you have to reinvent your life all ahead on perspective tip trump returned from the g. seven summit this week after discussing the china trade war and welcoming russian vladimir putin back to the meeting of world leaders proud person. Would i invite him. I would certainly invite him whether or not he could come psychologically. I think that's a tough thing to do. The president also did not choose to discuss climate change during a meeting at the g. Seven is former defense secretary. Jim manages warning of bitter political divisions posing hosing a greater threat to american society than foreign adversaries and we've got a hurricane looming. Let's break down the week deceit. Here's a._b._c. news political director recline rick. It seems like the g seven summit was ages ago. It was only this week when president trump came back but it was a what did you think of the g. Seven summit how how did it how did i'll shake out to you. Well i think he was president trump arguing with the world <hes> but also argument with himself and at the end of the day the world recognizing that you don't have to argue with the president if you can move maneuver around yeah i was struck by how many times he was on the sidelines literally not even going to a climate meeting but also just the gist of the world community was that you can can work without the president of the united states and it it may be a bit of a turning point where the world community rather than trying to convince the president of things or or or or or try to bully him and recognize that they won't change his mind is just trying to find avenues around him and that maybe you don't use the united states at the table able for everything that happens on the world stage. That's fascinating to me because i mean come on. We're the united states of america. I hate to say you know. We're the biggest and the best but come on. I mean we we were so integral for so many years and now you're saying world. Leaders are just saying now okay. We're going to go ahead and meet on our own in me. These things could be cyclical and it could could could very much go back on the other direction but i feel like there was a lot less worrying among other world powers what the united states thinks that this what the president thinks that this i think they recognize he's going to say a lot of things going to have a lot of bluster is going to contradict himself. He's going into goshi eight <hes> in bizarre ways sometimes but you can't try to influence it so much as you can just find evans around it so the climate change discussion. He was not a part of <hes> what about boris johnson and his role and his relationship with president trump the new prime minister of great britain with the the e._u. Pull out looming on on halloween october thirty first but as a twist because he has in president trump was something of a kindred spirit of a._a._r._p.'s r._p._g. Pod and can do so on the world stage so that have the united states and great britain work together. I think there's a lot of domestic politics that have to play out for prime minister johnson before he can turn to some of these matters of world affairs but there is there's a possibility of of some teamwork going on there and i think the recognition that the same kind of forces that propelled president trump <hes> to office or the the forces behind brexit and the the forces behind boris johnson and <hes> those are forces that frankly even other world leaders that don't and have that at the top right now have to contend with and have to worry about there are trump like enforce johnson like figures in places like france and germany <hes> and and they recognize recognize that those are those are looming threats to the current leadership structure former defense secretary. James mattis is out with a new book and from the brief ex- excerpts that we've seen i mean i mean talking a lot about <hes> tribalisation. Polarization things that we've heard before is they're going to breaking new ground. In this tremendous book i think the former's in the trump era or have a hard time breaking breaking through because the president does make so much noise and <hes> we can almost queue up the president attacking james madison insulting him now the guy that he loved his mad mad dog and and really lead boosted early on i would foresee that playing out in the not so distant future and from there. It's hard to see what happens next because he doesn't have that perch but there's using accumulated wait to a lot of these things. Mattis pointedly is not going after trump personally. He says that <hes> that he's he is still giving him space. He may not do that forever but madison still a soldier and doesn't want to be seen as just attacking the commander in chief. Okay we got a hurricane looming and mar-a-lago right in it cites the white house response so far at what's happening in florida and to what happened in puerto rico. Did you think of that well. This war with the mayor of san juan is not a new one. He's going to be continuing one and i think it's <hes> we'll see see if it changes his response. He's decided to to not go to poland to wait it out. He'll wait it out a doll club in new jersey rather than florida okay and finally the democratic debate bait a._b._c. september twelfth. We're gonna have one debate <hes> with ten candidates on stage and not to night debate because not enough people made that cut what are we going to see when we narrow it down to these ten contenders all the major contenders on stage for the first time one night only and i think you see some matchups joe biden and elizabeth warren haven't been at the same stage neither immoral and comma harris and it's up to the candidates to decide but it will be our stage for the first time when a._b._c. that debate september twelfth okay. A._b._c.'s reclined political director. Thank you much make sure this week alleged victims delivered powerful testimony in the case of jeffrey epstein. Women who have accused epstein of sexual abuse spoke out in court demanding justice even after his death a._b._c.'s chief national affairs correspondent. Tom yomas has the details nearly two dozen of jeffrey a free epsteins accusers packing manhattan courtroom their message clear. He may be dead but the request for justice is still alive. It was both empowering and i and infuriating to know that the person who i needed to hear those words is not here to hear them. Sean davies described in chilling detail being raped by jeffrey epstein on his private island in the caribbean makes me sick to my stomach that there's <unk> perpetrators out there that obviously helped him in many ways but in court prosecutors vowing vowing to pursue any co-conspirators one name brought up by multiple accusers british socialite and epstein associate ghislaine maxwell who has denied all wrongdoing doing we need to get to the bottom of everybody who's involved with that starting with dealing maxwell virginia roberts goof races maxwell recruited her to be teenage sex slave to epstein. She has also claimed epstein order her to have sex with some of his powerful friends. Including prince andrew something the prince has denied prince andrew releasing releasing a statement admitting his friendship with epstein but saying in part at no stage during the limited time i spent with him. Did i see witness or suspect any behavior. You're of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction outside of court who free firing back. He knows exactly what he's done and i hope he comes this clean about it. A landmark ruling in the case linked to america's opioid epidemic. A judge in oklahoma is ordering johnson and johnson to pay a five hundred and seventy two million dollars. The state's attorney general says thousands of people have died from opioid overdoses a._b._c.'s steve. Asami has more more the nation's drug makers on alert.

The company explains that while purdue pharma is prepared to defend itself vigorously in the opioid opioid litigation. It's these little good coming from years of wasteful litigation and appeals the new york times reporting that as part of the proposed settlement that members of the sackler family who owned the drug maker would give up their stake in the company and pay three billion dollars of their own money.

Floods droughts commodity prices tariffs trade wars. All of it has been taking a toll on america's farmers. Many of them say they're more afraid now than they ever have been of losing the family business and some of them are reaching out for help in fact a new stress hotline has been set up specifically for farmers and those in in rural areas. A._b._c.'s ryan burrow reports from our affiliate w._g._n. In chicago the farm progress show has been going on this week in decatur illinois. A chance for thousands of farmers is to come together. Talk shop see exhibits demonstrations and take part in learning sessions at the same time of vera behavioral health has rolled out a new farm and rural stress us hotline staffed twenty four seven with mental health professionals. You could talk with farmers and ranchers who may be struggling. Thomas is the assistant vice president of the company and says in the because they've received so far probably about half of our calls have been from the farmer themselves and have were calls have been from loved ones <hes> spouse or a child who's very concerned about their mother or father. Dealing with financial struggles is nothing new with the agriculture industry. Although it's been a bigger challenge in recent years will roger agrees with the american farm bureau federation not use a cliche but a perfect storm of factors. We've got depressed. Commodity prices that oftentimes are below you. You know you've production costs. We've got tariff difficulties with you know the ongoing trade war and we have just generally awful weather other had terrible weather this year <hes> that's kept many many farmers from planting and while the impact of of these factors varies by commodity in varies aries bhai farmer. We still see that you know farm. Income is down sharply over the last six years and really we're.

I think that weighs on them the a of b._f. Survey released in may shows while rural adults believe mental health is important and majority would be willing to seek treatment for themselves or family remember. Those numbers went down slightly among farmers you know if you look at rural america you've got fewer healthcare facilities for mental health care facilities people have to go far further the two to find help and <hes> you know the poll suggests that the deal image or stereotype of stoic farmer summer to a certain degree is true <hes> but the truth is they they suffer mental health challenges as as much as anyone sixty six percent of farmers surveyed saying it's important to reduce stigma about mental health in the agriculture community. A twenty fifteen report from the centers for disease control prevention claimed farmers at the highest suicide rate of any any profession in the u._s. but the c._d._c. later retracted those numbers after reclassifying some of the workers in other categories three calculated numbers now showing just over seventeen farmers armor out of every one hundred thousand died by suicide in two thousand fifteen.

No firetrucks no hoses no radio seraphic raxit calling out to each other right now. That's other communicating in the bush. This village appears. He says his name is jefferson.

Government and other countries pledging assistance american super tanker the world's largest firefighting airplane flew from colorado springs to bolivia to help contain the fires there at first brazilian president a coyote both scenario accused without evidence brazilian ngos of starting the fires growth both scenarios seeming lack of urgency around around the fires igniting protests in rio de janeiro but both scenario reverse course authorizing the deployment of forty four thousand troops brazil's air force deploying c. one thirty tankers streaming over three thousand gallons of water per drop. It is believed that many of the fires were started started by farmers trying to clear land environmentalists say bolsonaro seeming support for the development of amazon over environmental practices may have golden farmers to burn land.

I'm sherry preston coming up soot ball stars ending their careers early you why but i sex and the city reshaped the landscape of pop culture and influenced conversation surrounding rounding love and dating for women in their twenties and thirties thanks change though people get older including the creator of sex in the city candace bushnell. She is out with a new book based on her <music> own journey through middle aged divorce dating again in your fifties my colleague michelle franzen and i talked to her about that and how she hopes her new book. Is there still sex in the city ready to help others going through similar experiences. This book was not really about dating. It's more about as a woman getting older. What's it like getting older first civil. This idea of kind of new passage of life over fifty is actually fairly new and and very very in recent idea because up until probably about thirty or forty years ago. There simply weren't enough people over the age of fifty to be of much interest interest and that's all the algorithms stop at fifty. Nobody's trying to sell anything to people over fifty over fifty. He is traditionally not even a demographic so that's a message from society that people over are fifty don't matter and that's just simply isn't a relevant way to i look at life today. I mean today's fifty year old. Is you know vibrant. <hes> is working. Maybe starting another career you know nobody is sliding into retirement so this focus is really about what i call this new middle age rush and yet you know we're our society is so ages that we've all absorbed negative messages about out aging. Do you feel that's changing a bit. I mean let's let's go on your history here with with your writing with your experience here in new york city <hes> what's changed for you your your you've written this latest book based on your experiences to what's changed over the decades for you. You know i think it's about going through all these different passages suggest in the life cycle <hes> and i think that's what it's really about for a lot of i mean for me. Sex sex and the city was really about a particular time and about a particular passage and you know that's a time in one's life where air you know you're you're single and you're not you know you're not making a home with somebody else. You're on your own and that's where you more now right well. That's what's so interesting about. This new middle age is that it's for a lot of women it really feels like a full circle and i think that's something that people are not expecting house of the way that life works thousand jobs aren't permanent the fifties or even six feet can be a time when you you have to reinvent your life life so kansas based on your books and you're following whether it's through words or through the series or the movies you captured you said a time especially especially in new york city <hes> that probably applied to women nationwide as well if not worldwide. What will they find in this book. <hes> specifically about again new york city or about the era that they live in thursday of all the book is partly about the city but it's but it's also about the phenomenon of people leaving the city and finding bonds and making <hes> you know a metaphorical family only outside of the city because that happens a lot in this book the characters go back and forth a bit and already i've had so many women come up to me and say you just hit the nail on the head and this is exactly what i'm going through and this is exactly what my friends are going through so. I think what's tricky about it. Is that <hes> you know. It's kind of getting women to accept the fact that you know. There's a certain time time in your life would maybe not everything's going to be perfect. No matter how hard you work at it you know this is really about reinvention. It's about the full circle of finding your friends again and mostly getting your mojo back and finding out who you are in the world again as a woman in you know middle age and not in childbearing years. That's a good way to end it because it really is a a full circle that you talk about. I mean you're kind of doing the same things now that you did before but you're you're reinventing and that's what a lot of women do at this age i mean we hit the stage and we go wow okay. I've done at that matt. What's next and you talk about a lot in your book. Is there still sex in the city so candace bushnell. Thank you very much and thanks for shell q.

He says football was sucking the joy out of life for him. He also discussed the physical nicole toll that comes with playing the game and he offered some advice andrew lock. You've made headlines. Will you announced your retirement at twenty nine years old and you said with the injury what happened in the super bowl that made you think about or consider retirement and tell us about that. I was thinking about it for a year to now you know just going through the seasons ends and going through the those those times and all the injuries and hits and everything but you know icing on the cake was definitely hitting the super bowl. You know <hes> ahead. Stay in the game for sure. You know. It's the last game you got. It's the super bowl man <hes> but that that hit was brutal. It was deep and literally put a hole in my class for like four weeks. You can like robert and like you had to have the fluid drained out of it well after that and you retired but you can tell you still unloaded you said game to joy you still got emotional talking about it <hes> because you know i love the game of football and live so much respect for the game of football and i understand what i signed up for so football to me has brought me to this fire and football has made me a stronger person a hundred percent i'm so thankful for and i played in the one of the greatest organizations in all of sports and i'm so thankful for that opportunity i play with the greatest player of all time greatest coach of all time greats owners of all times and i'm so thankful for that and it can help me go to the next chapter of my life <hes> taking things from their seeing what i learned from guys like that and going on in my life and learning what i've learned learned the circumstances i went through. I look at it now and i'm thankful for <hes>. Definitely i mean yeah that hitting the super bowl. I guess what i kept playing and i ended up helping the team with the big cats to score touchdown on a running play the next place so <hes> you know you gotta do what you gotta do. You don't wanna let the guys down yes. You can't let the guys is down so you gotta give it all you have but i'm just so thankful for opportunities and that i presented and take advantage of and it's just made me so much more strongest brought me to this point now and i found ways to recover from everything when you want to your teammates and you said i'm going to retire. How did they react to that. They <music>. I'm sure they want you to play. You're one of the best players in the league when the best everett your position when i retired actually i i i'll tell you the truth. I didn't even tell any of my teammates. You know i i called up. <hes> you know the couple couple guys and the organization <hes> that that took me so i wanted to pay my respects in and let them know let them know before it happened <hes> but you know i just knew the decision was clear. I knew what i what i was. When i did retire too. I i didn't even have that passion that energy to call up everyone because i just needed to get it out of the way but one i have talked about it before with with teammates and stuff. They all understood totally. I would say in now that i have talked to teammates. Since there are one hundred percent supportive they all know what the game is like and to walk away on my own terms is just a great way to to leave and you hit on something that you guys who play the game. You know what it's like. He's saying they see somebody who looks able body a healthy great player going out on top andrew luck great player comeback player two year decide to retire twenty nine like you did fans weren't so happy with his his retirement but but for you. What advice do you have for him. You know since i've since i've been retired for five months i had a game plan though and i know that you can basically fix like any injury that you you sustain football. I mean like there's there's ways out there to recover. There's ways out there to get better and then when you get better you can. You can get stronger from there so that's what i knew to and i knew i had to step away from the game of football in order to accomplish sat fat to let my body he'll let my mind. He'll just subtle get that calmness again in life and get that joy against so you got to go find find that joy so the last five months i've been doing.

I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great this loyal and n._y._p._d. Officer fire five five years after the chokehold death of eric garner. I've been a cop a long time. If i was still a cop i probably be mad at me. I would not looking out for us but i am. A young man takes his grandmother across the u._s. To visit the country's most cherished lands we walked across the landscape and up a sand dune and been she got down on the ground and i said what are you doing. She said i wanna i wanna roll down. It looks fun all ahead on perspective president trump zigzag for much of the week on major issues seeming to reverse course on gun background checks and dan tax cuts while also canceling upcoming visit with denmark's president after the country said greenland is not for sale. The president also continued his attack on democrats in and congresswoman repeated questioning the loyalty of the jewish community. If they choose to vote for the democrats i think any jewish people that vote for a democrat pratt <hes> i think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty amid questions about the state of the economy ahead of the twenty twenty election shen down another week in washington. Here's a._b._c. news white house correspondent karen travers. We had talk of <hes> you know background checks than no payroll tax than yeah no <hes> it was a lot of flipping on a lot of stuff. This week from the white house wasn't it it was i mean i think it was just mixed. Messages on a whole host of very critical critical policy issues and where we land at the end of the week is that the economy is still the big topic here for the president is still the thing that he is tweeting the most about out and that his aides feel that they have to address because there have been a lot of big red flags about a potential downturn in the economy <hes> the looming recession that ah communist and analysts are warning about and it was not imminent jared's next year or the year after that but it's enough to create some anxiety right now and the president has decided on a campaign of we will p._r. Spin this. We will talk about how great the economy is now an ins not wrong but he's also not acknowledging that there could be some dark clouds coming on the horizon and it's a you know a gamble but they're looking at this from the political standpoint the president's heading into the election season the economy is the one bright spot for him in public polling and any dings on that right now <hes> could jeopardize his reelection chances economic adviser larry cudlow said just on thursday day that if there was going to be a tax cut probably come during the campaign unusual for it to be that quite that <hes> you know we know they have their eye on the political calendar wonderbra for them to say and here is the date that we have circled and this is when we will do an economic stimulus in order to help the economy would also help people that we would like to vote for us. It's pretty striking breaking to see them be so candid. I think what was also interesting from kudlow is that you know. He says they're they're looking at what they're calling. Tax cuts two point. Oh tax cuts for for the middle class. He says for small businesses for blue collar workers <hes> but they're also trying to straddle a very tricky line here by saying that we don't need to do this right now. We can wait until next year. We don't need a short term. Stimulus plan for the economy because the economy is so strong but if we were to consider something here's what we would do so they're trying to say. We're thinking about things for the potential downturn that we don't think is happening but in case it does don't worry we got you covered. When it comes comes to the background checks for guns i mean the president was super seemed like he was very supportive of it. Increasing background checks then you know he. He talked to wayne lapierre's of the of of the n._r._a. And and that change that's surprise anybody that that was going to change before before you know after parkland the florida high school shooting the president came out and i said we were going to do something you know background checks there was going to be really tough action and new gun legislation and within about a week and a half he backtracked from that and it was very clearly tied led to conversations he had on the phone and dinner he had at the white house with leadership from the n._r._a. So when he came out very quickly after the ohio and texas shootings there was was a skepticism about this but it was okay. This is what he's saying publicly but sure enough within about two weeks president now is saying that there are already ready background checks on the books and and maybe look at reinforcing them but that we don't need to have new gun legislation but even by the end of this week sherry the white house officials were still saying that all all of this is just talk at this point because congress isn't here when they get back in session in september then things might begin in earnest but that's the big question then is is there any political will on on capitol hill for this lawmakers aides that we have talked to say there could be but really the kickstart that any legislation would need is explicit support fort from the president final question looking ahead to the next democratic debate looking at democrats kenya name <hes> two or three of them that may be on the president's mind right now certainly joe biden. He's the person that the president talks about the most yet at the same time. The president will say he'd love to see him as his rival because he feels that he would be the best person for him to take on. I think sherry it's easier for the president right now to speak the same language of joe biden similar generation and i think they that he feels like he can go after him in a way that he's more comfortable comfortable with some of the other candidates trip him up a little bit more but certainly based on tweets and <hes> reaction to questions joe biden. It's on the president's mind okay karen in travers as always. You're very knowledgeable. Thanks for your insight from the white house appreciate it bakes five years after eric garner's final words. I can't breathe ignited a nationwide protest. The new york city police officer directly blamed for his chokehold death has been fired n._y._p._d. Commissioner james o'neill announced officer daniel pantaleo handle eos termination earlier this week calling it an extremely difficult decision a._b._c. News senior investigative reporter aaron katersky recounts the firing and how unfolded with our brad milkey on a._b._c.'s daily podcast start here erin. Why did this take five years to the side. There were so many different investigative steps that had to be taken before the n._y._p._d. Could initiate its own discipline. I the staten island district attorney declined to bring criminal charges against officer pantaleo then the feds took a look and for a number of years the department was asked to hold off on on any discipline or even on getting in the way of maybe federal federal investigators in this went back and forth and there was a real reluctance on the part of the justice department to bring federal civil rights charges under both administrations but it was finally left of the attorney general william bar to say no that was just last month. He has not been brought to justice that police officers should be off the street and right after that the mayor the city of new york bill de blasio said well now new york can enact considered justice. You know why because for the first time we are not waiting on the federal justice department may ask my decision in a disciplinary case of police officer daniel pantaleo and so the disciplinary process at the n._y._p._d. Policy let's see finally ended not long ago with departmental judge finding daniel pantaleo reckless in using a chokehold against garner during the arrest. I won out although not with intent. I examined the totality of the circumstances and relied on the facts i stand before you today confident that i have reached the correct concision nonetheless recommending fired and that's the action that the police commissioner affirmed on monday but wait pantaleo police reps have said again and again this was not even an illegal choke hold the administrative court said he was untruthful during the investigation was that in there is worse than the actual to- cold not really it was is permissible initially because as you describe bread pantaleo and garner are wrestling at one point pantaleo is slammed against shopkeepers supers- wall he refused to cooperate with the arrest and to comply with lawful orders the video also makes clear it offers pantaleo original efforts to take mr garner into custody for appropriate and that end as he tries to maintain his balance and control over eric garner. He puts him in a chokehold but what happened. Next is the matter. How do we must address. The patrol. Officers guide says once you're on the ground that kind of potentially lethal force has to end and for those few seconds officer pantaleo maintained a grip on eric garner's soot didn't kill him directly but it contributed to an asthma attack at the medical examiner's office said did and a gnat is where the departmental judge and the police commissioner found officer pantaleo to be reckless. I've been a cop a long time and if i was still a cop probably be mad at me. I would not looking out for us. Plan wanna talk about the commissioner for a second because because he said again and again in this press conference he is a former beat cop he rose through these ranks and i almost got confused listening to him 'cause does he think pantaleo should still it'll be a cop or not. I mean he's really sympathetic to him. He said police officers make split-second decisions. All the time and some of those decisions are life and death and pendolino is union is calling for a vote of no confidence now in commissioner o.'neil. There's a saying within the police department. That's been bantered around for some time. That said the job is dead. In reality to job has been dying and today the job is dead. However have you came up to here decision. You finally made a decision. That should have been made five years ago. Though eric garner's family thanked the commissioner for doing what they called the right thing instead they keep pushing for a federal law to ban police officers across the country from using a chokehold. I lost my son. You cannot be place stab. You can get another job. Maybe at burger king okay so it's really interesting timing because on the same day california's governor signed this new law that basically early makes it illegal for a police officer to use deadly force unless it's objectively reasonable like you have no other options your taser deescalation tactics are all played out so on one side you got black lives matter saying we need to reevaluate how much authority give cops on the street to begin with and then the police benevolent association and new yorker saying saying this guy should not have even been fired.

Preston smoke loomed over the city of sao paulo brazil this week more than a thousand miles away from the amazon rainforest but that's where the smoke originated as the brazilian amazon is experiencing a record amount of fires this year. The number of fires in the amazon rainforest has almost doubled since last year according to the non-governmental environmental your mental organization greenpeace a._b._c. news foreign correspondent. James longman has been reporting on the story. I got a chance to talk to about it earlier this week my hearing these numbers right seventy wendy four thousand fires this year and almost ten thousand just since last week in the amazon rainforest yeah. That's absolutely right. I mean there are fis every year at this time armavir but this is you know we have never seen anything quite like this. These guys are often started off and by farmers who have to clear tracts of land to to <hes> to rear cattle but nothing of this scale and the the images from space or something you know looking down on south america you could z. wisps of white clouds that not that smoke. It's traveling. It's trouble over seventeen hundred miles right the way over to sao paulo where that that city on monday was basically it was a blackout people were driving home from work and in the middle of the day and you can see images the basically the city just looks like it's night all the <hes> headlamps or on driving home so i think this really has up the interest in just what is going on in the amazon so you mentioned that <hes> l. many times the fires were started by farmers who are clearing the land for cattle. Is that where how most of these started is it. The the warm temperatures is it on purpose is it because there's been less attention paid by the brazilian government to what's been going on in the rainforest recently. I think probably all of the above. I mean we should say that. There are other fires going on in other parts of of south america for example bolivia just over the border. Two thousand square miles of forest is currently on fire and it isn't <hes> you know the these things happen every a year because like you said it is summertime there is drought. We call it a rainforest but actually parts of the forest can suffer with drought but yes. It's a it's. It's something that pharma's do all all over the world. There are controlled fires in order to be able to rear cattle. We have an insatiable hunger for meat products dairy products <hes> all over the world and so there is a big big need for it but yes there has been a lot of criticism on for the government and particularly for jampal scenario. The newly elected president gnat <hes> who has basically makes no bones about it. He's pro development and not particularly keen on conservation and yeah one of the things he did recently was blame ngos. They said it was a retaliation that these fires have been set for retaliation because they hadn't funded the rainforest. I mean is that just bluff. I mean come on. I mean yeah that's bluff. I think we can in probably safety say look. Let's put it like this. He hasn't provided any evidence evidence for that and he said it's just a feeling that he had but his people who support him. We'll say it's because he's cut funding for ngos and so they've got this kind of <hes>. I suppose they won't be able to gain more kind of <hes> notoriety and there were people to know they exist. They want more money like that but i think it's it's quite clear that ngos who care about the environment and have been looking after the amazon for decades probably wouldn't be setting light to it <hes> he has come into. He's clashed with them a number of times and in fact <hes> just last month he fired the head of brazil space agency after they had a disagreement about the numbers over deforestation it was highlighted by the space agency because obviously that the people who taking photographs from the sky of the amazon rainforest deforestation shen had had gotten out of control and bolsonaro said well. That's it you're out of here. <hes> so you know. This isn't the first time that he's had this issue. It's just coming to raise arts engine now. Because of the scale of this fire james tell us a little bit about the importance of amazon rainforest its size and just really what it means for the entire the entire world well. It's about half the size of the united states and it has about three million different varieties of plant and animal life but a million people live their indigenous <hes> indigenous people which have been increasingly threatened in recent years they call call it home and it's vital because a vast amount of carbon in its trees sucks in carbon dioxide the vast amount of a tree sorry they suck in carbon in the atmosphere which we need to slow down the global warming to slow down the rise in global temperatures so this is an extraordinarily important part of the world. It's responsible for producing something like twenty percents of the oxygen that we all breathe and it's extraordinary that over the last fifty or so years shocking twenty percent of it has already been cut away and every minute of every day something like a soccer pitch pitch and a half is cut down and so what scientists say is there is a tipping point that you could reach the rainforest where if too much of these the two many of these trees cut down the rainforest cannot sustain itself and then they will be a deputation effect whereby it won't be able to nourish its own soil. Oh because it's a very particular type of saw that you need in a rainforest and that and much larger parts of the rainforest could just die out without anyone cutting these trees down so it is a pretty severe situation now exactly according to one conservationist is quoted as saying every time you look at a satellite image of the forest you see another little piece missing in those little pieces <music> all add up to be a very big chunk of something. That's crucial to the globe the amazon rainforest james longman. Thank you so much for bringing the story to us. Thank you noticed this sunday sunday. The u._s. is celebrating.

What is that how would you characterize. Romo's was only sixteen when he began working as chair umpire. One friend said he was so focused. He treated local satellite events. This is if they were the wimbledon. Final romo's had an incredible will to succeed so d two little girls a world away in compton california venus and serena williams are are perhaps the greatest sport story ever with two sisters not just one tiger woods in the family but to a african american family in a predominantly white sport.

Margaret court's record twenty four singles titles grand slam singles titles and everybody expected serena was gonna win going into the match whether it was the pressure of the moment or simple slip-up williams and her coach would make a huge mistake patrick. Murata glue has been serena's coach for seven years two games into the second set. He believes she was in trouble tried to help her and he did something that would change the match. Go coaching warning. Mrs williams if he gets up he's telling me we don't have any code. I know you don't know that and understand why you may have thought that was coaching. It's telling you it's not just like patrick who is not known to be one of those coaches who coaches all the time and you know i didn't understand until they showed patrick and when they showed him it was i thought ought to go forward to going to the net from that moment on the match was spiral out of control for waves broken racket in frustration another violation and then and this moment caraballo horrible of us news during this is really asaka would finish your off in the second set.

Conference serena was unbound the fact that i have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions and express themselves and they want to be a strong woman and they're gonna be allowed to do that.

I came back here it. It was it was twenty six years. I think from the time that i left to the time that i came back and the first thing that i noticed was how much coach hadn't changed. There are certainly if you look closely. They're certainly things that have changed inevitably. Nothing stays the same for thirty years but actually it's astonishing how much hasn't hasn't changed and actually my cabinet hasn't really changed much. I think somebody's tucked away my old jacket but <hes> but other than that it's pretty much as i left it. There are many listeners who've stayed with us for that length of time and it's nice they have done this. Something about carolina does that no other station would do that.

You may have missed. I'm Cheri Preston coming up or special counsel Robert Muller finally testified on Capitol. Hill report did not include that he did not commit a show suggest that is correct and what about total exoneration you actually totally exonerate the president written names. It's new Prime Minister Boris Johnson months away from Brexit flat out with my team that I will build a few days to repay. Hey Your copay has been in the meantime campaign is over the web and Ole Miss Student murder and the arrest of her former classmate. She was probably one of the most positive radio. I'm just GonNa less how the fact that she was always there air for me if I needed to talk to her all ahead on perspective this was the week that former special counsel Robert Muller testified after his two year long investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election are more was questioned by Democrats who breast the former special counsel on potential obstruction of justice by president trump and by Republicans who questioned him on the process of his investigation A._B._C.. News Congressional correspondent Respondent Mary Bruce Breaks Down Muller's testimony on Capitol Hill Robert Muller Walking into a hearing two years in the making you swear he was a reluctant witness but Democrats forced him to appear pressing him on whether the president obstructed obstructed justice director Mueller the president has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction and that it completely and totally exonerated him but that is not what you report said is it correct is the report says the report did not conclude that he did not commit obstruction of justice. Is that correct that is correct and what about total exoneration did you actually totally exonerate the president now but muller did not reach conclusion on obstruction because the Justice Department office of Legal Counsel says sitting president cannot be indicted but can he be charged after he leaves office. You could charge the president United States with obstruction of justice after he left office again and and again Democrats went back to the report to highlight the ten incidents of possible obstruction by the president including when trump allegedly ordered his former White House counsel Don mcgann to fire Muller when the request was reported in the New York Times mcgann said the president told told him to deny it the president said quote fake news folks fake news a typical New York Times fake story in quote correct but your investigation actually found substantial evidence that mcgann was ordered by the president of fire you correct yes but did the President Obstruct Muller Republicans pointed out mother kept his job never fired a special counsel Mr Method of no now where where are you allowed to complete get your investigation unencumbered. Yes Republicans argued Muller was out of bounds for offering examples of potential obstruction without drawing a conclusion you wrote one hundred eighty pages one hundred eighty pages about decisions that weren't reached about potential all crimes that weren't charged speak for a second muller offered a passionate defence of his team as Republicans accused them of political bias in this business for almost twenty five years and who knows twenty-five years. I have not had occasion wants to ask ask somebody about their political affiliation. It is not done what I care about is the capability of the individual to do the job and do the job quickly and seriously and with Integrity Still Republicans said it's over. It's time for the curtain to close on the Russia. Hoax conspiracy theory is dead. He said the Russians are added again right now. Would you agree that. It was not a hoax that the Russians were engaged in trying to impact our election. Absolutely it's not a hoax and after six hours one last question I gather that you believe that knowingly accepting foreign assistance during the presidential campaign is an unethical thing to I do and a crime and crime circumstances yes and to the crime given certain circumstances and to the degree that undermines democracy and our institutions we can agree that it's also unpatriotic crew and wrong true. Mary Bruce A._B._C. News Capitol Hill. So what does Robert Muller's testimony mean for the White House. What does it mean when it came to substance? What does it mean when it comes to politics and what does it mean for the impeachment impeachment? Possibly of president trump at some Democrats have been talking about. Let's break it all down. Here's A._B._C.'s political director recline rig. It seems to me that there were two parts of the Muller report that we're looking to analyze now substantively and politically so let's start aren't substantively. I what do we know now that we didn't know before we had director Mollard directly contradict the President United States on a number of fronts. He did not find that there was no collusion. He did not find that there was no obstruction he did not as the president has often said come back and beg for his old job back as F._B._i.. Director and this was not a witch-hunt this was him in the starks terms possible repudiating the president's word on the highest profile investigation that is surrounded his presidency so to see that play out loud from <hes> from Muller himself was very startling. If you were to swoop in and look at the story from the outside and if you were looking at it from the outside what so many people said is it so few Americans have actually read this report all the way through everything he said was in there but but there's a lot more in there too yeah there is and I think it's still going to take some time to digest including the overall point that the Russians are as we sit here right now trying again to influence our democracy. I don't know that those points have been fully digested and I think this is a reminder of how vulnerable vulnerable we are in how the partisanship can overtake all of it and I think whatever else you say about Muller and his work. I think that should be a wakeup. Call Americans okay so now. Let's talk about not politically. Where do we stand at the end of the day because it seemed like the Republicans were sort of doing victory? Dance and Democrats were sort of throwing their hands up in the air. You think that's true well. I think Democrats probably got a little ahead of themselves in terms of expectations that weren't many people though realistically okay who thought this would be a game changer and follow himself told us he was going to be pretty boring. He was going to stick to the four corners of his report. He didn't want to be there at all so I think there's that piece of perspective that's important and I think from the Republicans. This was defense and we're no closer to impeachment and if that's the game then that's fine in but I'm not sure that the politics of this start to break well for Republicans either again the conduct that was described by Muller whatever else you say about his his motivations in his report man has impeccable credentials and he came and he said the president was doing a lot of bad things and we still don't know how close he really came to facing criminal charges as a sitting President Muller says he wasn't able to even get to that because of the policy so. I don't know how that's a clear win truly for anyone but yet you had president trump. I'm coming afterwards saying it's a great day for me. You know he called the whole thing unpatriotic and wrong as he has done time and time again and how much is this really matter to people who have just already made up their minds. Well people seem to have accepted Muller's reports and findings a a lot more than they accept the consequence potentially of impeachment so I don't know how this truly plays I do. The president is going to say what he says about it. Regardless of what the reality was. I don't really think his response should be much of a surprise to anyone who's washed his his conduct walked in his descriptions of this overall but it's going to be up to people to decide. I think a larger number of people this week we're exposed to the findings of the mall report whether that's just public opinion in a way that matters ultimately and matters for impeachment. I don't think we're there yet so when it comes to impeachment where do you see that fight going not very far. I think this is a critical period over the the Aug break for members of Congress what they hear from their constituents but as of now Sherry less than half of House Democrats support impeachment to say nothing of the two thirds vote you need in the Senate not even you can't even get the Democrats onboard in the House of Representatives so my mind Nancy Pelosi knows that and her go slow approach in a way has been been vindicated by the fact that we're not we're we're. We need to be as a country bring impeachment. I don't think Democrats want to get that far or they're gonNA continue their investigations. They're going to do a lot of work behind the scenes but the I word I think is off the table. You think this means finally we will start talking about things other than investigating president trump because that's the one thing both sides of sort of become frustrated with I mean at what point we actually take cut bills when it comes to Healthcare Immigration Democrats in Congress and say they are taking up those bills of they're just getting installed in the Senate and guess what the right about that by and large look you hear the phrase that members of Congress love to say we can walk and Chew Gum the fact is there really the isn't really isn't a room in the public consciousness to focus on that many things at the same time. Unfortunately I in this case. A lot of the legislative work is getting kind of shifted to the side. I don't know the answer to that. Though Sherry I think the breakthrough of bipartisanship partisanship that it would take there's no signs of that anytime soon and every day week before the election makes it less likely that you're able to see real bipartisan progress on anything. I'd like to talk to you. Karen travers all of our other friends in D._C.. About what it's like in Washington on a daily basis. Racist because this is wearing a lot of people out all of this and for you guys it's just relentless. It's a fire hose of craziness and if it's not one thing that's always going to be something else. The election almost seems like a respite from some of the Washington Zany that we deal with on a regular racist but keep in mind president trump likes this pace. He is dominating the news cycle and that's exactly what he wants to be doing. Okay recline and your fire hose of craziness. We're GonNa let you go. Thanks as always the questioning of Robert Mueller on Capitol Hill you can make up your own mind and who you think won or lost the day out Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler Today the American people heard directly about what the special counsel investigation uncovered as to Russia's interference in the two two thousand sixteen election and the president's cooperation with it and obstruction of justice the ranking member of the Committee Republican Congressman Doug Collins Georgia those are the facts of the Molar Rochelle Mandolin the twenty six election the president did knock aspire with Russian and nothing we here today change those fans everything we've come up with is show hearings dog and pony shows running out old people from Watergate era and what have we found that the American people are footing the bill for a continuation of twenty sixteen election that they don't lie. I challenge the democratic colleagues get over the election of two thousand sixteen run in two thousand twenty if he wants and others weighing in as well as the attorney general supposed to be the attorney general of the United States of America Erica worth it can Sigli Ari for the president. What he's doing is not obstructing justice? He is pursuing justice. Hopefully this'll be the end of these hearings because the House Intelligence Committee has important work to do if you you look at the national security for this country. There's nothing more important right now. Chances are pretty good. If there are veep winners and losers your mind was probably already made up for you even started listening coming up Britain's new prime minister and for her Rico's governor resigns uproar and protests on perspective after this these days news comes out of Washington so fast it can be hard to keep up.

Willingness to just challenge boundaries claiming claiming to be a German heiress with sixty seven million dollar trust fund. She talked her way into exclusive New York parties and nightclubs which is how she met Rachel Williams in two thousand sixteen then a twenty eight year old photo editor at Vanity Fair Magazine Z. and my late Twenties I was a period of major transition for me and my friends a lot of them were getting married or having babies are leaving the city and I was so glad to have this person who was available and seemed really excited to be my friend. The the pair soon became inseparable living glamorous life of two young women in Manhattan. Why do you think she was able to sort of walk into rooms and sort of do what she wanted to? Some degree probably because he's a young white female also a lot of had to do with her specific charm. She seemed good-willed twenty five year old. Anna treated Rachel two drinks and dinners at exclusive restaurants and even three hundred dollar pop private fitness sessions. Nations alike terror and so we have a lot of fun together but would Rachel didn't know is that her friend was living ally and Adele was actually Anna Sorkin the russian-born daughter of middleclass parents a hotel hopping social drifter now behind bars for a series of wide ranging scams.

Welcome to A._B._C.'s no limits. I'm your host Rebecca Jarvis in each week. We're talking to the game. Changing women about success lessons is learned along the way and of course the worst advice and really thought about this worst advice ever you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. This is perspective from A._B._C. News. I'm Sherry Preston. Dr Priscilla Chan is one of the world's most prominent philanthropic leaders she striving to make her mark in the field of medicine science and she talked about some of those initiatives this week on Good Morning America with A._B._C.'s A._B._C.'s Robin Roberts she is fast becoming one of the most prominent philanthropic leaders of her generation Dr Priscilla Chan up and coming game changer in the fields of medicine and Science Science Technology Engineering the Harvard Educated U._C._S._f.. School of Medicine Grad is a pediatrician who also runs the Chan Zuckerberg initiative but she and her husband Facebook C._e._o.. Mark Zuckerberg launched in two thousand fifteen following the birth of the first daughter Max. We're going to have a front row seat to the biggest medical breakthrough and generation the initiatives most recent program called rare as one focuses on driving progress in the fight against rare diseases grants will be awarded to ten organizations with four and a half million dollars in initial funding people ask us. Are you going after one disease at a time. No it's really about making every scientist everyone who participates in the scientific process better. We're their experiences that you had that lead you to do the work that you're doing right now. When I was a young physician I would open up a patient's chart and like read something about it and I i? I was embarrassed. I would walk into a room and say I don't know anything about your disease. Can you tell me how do you take care of yourself in these patients and families would teach me train me on what it was like what the disease was in how to best take care of themselves on what worked for them and rare is one is about bringing in that patient voice because they have the insights. I can still remember exact patient rooms where the research didn't materialize in time or we didn't find the right treatment and <hes> exact families and <hes> I think those experiences what makes me realize that we have to do more. The daughter Chinese Vietnamese Refugees Chan who was the first Inter family to go to college says she always knew her life would involve service to others a lot of people open doors for me and if I didn't work hard and try to continue getting trained into actually open doors for others that I wasn't doing my part she and Zuckerberg who married in two thousand twelve are passing on those same lessons two daughters Max and August Audi when still in your children who are growing up in an environment that was that was different. We talk about it. Do you yeah there's three and two and we talk about how lucky we are. How what can we have each other to be happy and healthy in there also kids they? Don't you know my three year Gerald one day. She tells me mom I know about honey. Nut cheerios like what do you know what honey nut cheerios and she's like. I've heard about them and I WANNA box for my birthday. You can't Dan give them on. There is also the challenge of navigating philanthropy under the spotlight with controversy surrounding facebook's handling of user data have discussions about that you know people's concerned about privacy and other issues. Does your something that you and your husband that you think you can do to help alleviate those concerns data privacy is a top concern and should be for everyone especially in medicine what we've really grappled with is what have we learned from marks experiences <hes> running facebook to make sure that we are <hes> being incredibly proactive about this you get into this field. What is it about medicine because it's so apparent the emotion that you have the passion that you have? We're GONNA come from. There's so many times where I feel like <hes> this could be me. I don't have a rare disease that I know of but I've gotten really lucky and I've had a lot of people champion for me and and <hes> I don't take that for granted. She really doesn't and it's worth noting that the chance Zuckerberg's initiative is one of the most well-funded philanthropic organizations in the world. A couple has committed ninety nine percent of their facebook shares to this mission which also also includes improving education and reforming the criminal justice system would keep talking about rare disease where disease about twenty five to thirty million Americans suffer from a rare disease and ninety five percent of rare diseases no F._d._a..

This was one of those weeks where it was hard to keep up violence erupting in another American city following another police shooting to protest shot and killed by a seventeen year old accused of crossing state lines with an Ar fifteen style rifle and opening fire a category, four hurricane slamming into the Gulf coast, the pandemic making evacuations even harder and in the midst of it, all the Republicans laying out their case at the National Convention and the White House for why they think Donald Trump deserves another term. Built the most inclusive Adamy. Effort we will have law and order on the streets of this country for every American of every race and creed and color for the first time. In a long time, we have a president who has called out Washington. Sepulchre. CRECY and they hate him for it. Let's begin there in. Washington. ABC's Alec Stone tracked all of it and where president trump's speech capped off the week. Sherry is a fireworks were exploding over the Washington monument on Thursday night capped off a truly unusual two weeks of conventions both parties figuring out ways to hold a convention rally their bases get hours of radio and TV time, and to do it all while dealing with the pandemic for the Republicans this week most of what went on here in Washington was behind the gates of the White House and at other sites the love it was live it was mainly produced program but earlier in the week in Charlotte the real work of the convention. got. underway.

She didn't blame the other side our lives have changed drastically. INVISIBLE ENEMY COVID NINETEEN Swept across our beautiful country and on racial equality. Acted on the racial unrest in our country. It is a harsh reality that we are not proud of acts of our history on Wednesday night vice president pence speaking as Hurricane Laura was slamming Louisiana violence was unfolding in Wisconsin never saying Jacob Blake's name but reacting to the violence, the violence must stop whether in Minneapolis Portland or Kenosha Thursday night bringing the big moment president trump's speech on the South Lawn of the White House.

It was a week heavy on the message of law and order as president trump was deploying federal agents to Kenosha to deal with the unrest there these were by no means regular conventions, the parties though seem happy that they pulled them off in the millions of people tuned in each night but with Cova nineteen, still a threat how they're gonNA campaign from here. Nobody knows Sherry. Let's break it all down with ABC News, Political Director recline you say in your note, the ABC News note the politics note that you right were you better off six months ago than you were four years ago interesting take on where the Republicans are trying to make their argument during the convention this year. Sherry, just tells you a little bit about how difficult the argument is Mike Pence said rather awkwardly this week. Make America great again again, and that's just difficult to get to people's heads around and I think that's one reason why the Republican convention took the that it did making that kind of bank shot argument is difficult. So the parallel argument is look the other guys way worse and that's why a polarization and kind of getting people to retreat to the partisan corners is a priority for this president at this time and. That's the way he took the fight as strongly as you did to Joe Biden if you were to watch the Republican National Convention this week. First of all, you would see have seen a lot of American flags and second of all you wouldn't have heard really much about what's been going on in the marches for social justice in Kenosha Wisconsin, the hurricane, the pandemic there was mention of it, but it wasn't front and center kind of the things that we heard during the Democratic convention it was a much different tone and. I think the president used selective reading and often rewriting history to tell the story of his presidency and of what the presidency would look like what the country under Joe. Biden had meant for instance, condemning the protests in Kenosha. Wisconsin but not mentioning anything about why they were happening not even Saint Jacob Lakes name so that to me was one of the many areas where the President Republicans this week glossed over the inconvenient facts and tried to create a narrative draws selectively on real events. The president's speech, it was a stark. Contrast to the Democrats when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris came out with their matching black masks still keeping distance at the white. House, hardly anyone was wearing a mask people looked like there was social distance, but there were a lot of people there. I. Think the perception that the president is trying to portray in all of this is that the the were on the other side of the pandemic that were coming through it that life back to normal and you know he creates in his in the way that he puts together events. Throughout his time in politics kind of an aspirational feeling as jarring as all the sites and sounds were and would have been under any time to use the White House south. Lawn like that. It became more jarring to then see the the lack social distancing the lack of masks and the activities that would suggest that yeah. You know what there is nothing going on in this country that you have to be worried about what about using the white? House so many I mean thoughts. About that, it certainly violated ethics guidance to use a a setting that use public resources in any way like that it may have been illegal It's one of those things Sherry. Where someone I, think told the president this was questionable idea once it was raised in and then he touches the hot stove anyway and there's nothing that can truly be done about it. They'll be investigations but ultimately, he got the pictures he wanted he got the events he wanted and there's nothing or. No one that was able to stop it. It's really clear that that choice as an American voter could not be more different this change anyone's mind. Yeah I think there's a there's a myth that persist in this country of the of the decided voter and you know I I haven't found many of them. They certainly exists not what the election is about. It's about motivation is about getting your side excited and and underscoring the stakes and think the intent was really changing minds because i. Just don't think there are enough minds out there to get changed. How bad do you miss being in a big convention hall with the crazy outfits and the balloons and the confetti and everything else you know some of my fondest memories as a as a journalist maybe just as a person have been in in the bowels of these conventions I remember you know being in cramped sky box with Sam Donaldson eating a bad hotdog inbetween take some chicken fingers and a diet coke and. There's there's there's not a clamorous life to get up early and go through the security sweeps and sweat online but there is something about being there the energy, the life, the enthusiasm that only comes at a political convention it can't get recreated no matter how you try to consume these things I do hope that four years from now. Sherry. We're having this conversation in a faraway city where people are actually there to wash politics and action take care recliner political director at ABC News. Thanks so much a good week Sherri as of this weekend, we've got a little over two months to go before the election. Much of what happened in Kenosha Wisconsin this week played out on phones and on social medium there was the initial video of the shooting of Jacob Blake ABC's Ryan. Burrow who was in Kenosha this week starts us off the video shows the black man walking around police to the driver's side of his car walking by the white officers who have guns drawn as the open the door shots are fired. You appears to have been captured by someone across the street Kenosha police confirm the man was airlifted to a hospital in serious condition blake with survive but his family says he's paralyzed from the waist down. The shooting people took to the streets of Kenosha a city of about one hundred, thousand midway between Chicago and Milwaukee and once again, the protests were caught on video and distributed online this catcher by BG on the scene. With. Blake's father and mother spoke on Tuesday. Sun. Seven Times. Like he didn't matter. But my son matters I noticed. A lot of damage. It doesn't reflect my son. Or my family on Tuesday night protesters hit the streets again. But this time someone else to to a seventeen year old man named Kyle Rittenhouse armed with an Ar fifteen style rifle had driven up from Illinois police say and positioned himself amid the protesters Rittenhouse told blaze TV he was there guarding a car shop and was armed with lethal ammunition projecting from the citizens Adversary by. person in the crowd an hour and a half after that according to criminal complaint Rittenhouse can be seen running across parking lot turning to face a protester now described Joseph. Rosenbaum and shooting him Rosenbaum did not survive in Kenosha. ABC's Alex Perez describes. What happened next protesters tackle him to the ground. His next victim Anthony Huber tries to grab the gun attempting to disarm him with a skateboard but he shot in the chest and killed another protester gauge Gross Kreutz is shot in the arm on the scene were also caught on video yelling at police that people have been shot. But rittenhouse still armed with that long gone walks right up to police with his hands up and walks right past them. They do nothing. It's not until more than twelve hours later that police announced he's turned himself in across. State Lines Illinois. All Week sports stars were speaking up the Lakers Lebron James People get taught him. You say, but we are scared as Blackie and American. The New York met Dominic Smith Margo to the to their family. Owned it see it happen to my kids clippers coach Doc rivers became emotional. We're the ones getting killed. We're the ones getting shot rhythm wants. Deny. To live in certain communities. We've been home and. All you do is keep a fear. It's Mason. Why we keep loving this country. And this country isn't that US back in Milwaukee Bucks refuse to take the court for their playoff game. The bubble they were followed by those in the WNBA and major league soccer and the number one women's tennis player in the world they me Sokha refused to play. ABC's Ryan Smith is a legal analyst for ESPN and ABC News and Co host of ESPN's outside the lines he talked about all of it with perspective. Producer Eric Malo we've seen activism in sports before but I want ask you how this is different and why did it mostly stop the sports world this week this was unlike any day in sports history. This week was a combination of something that had been going on for a while with the NBA related to George Floyd's killing. When it became time become into the bubble, there was a handful of players that said should we? Actually be playing this might overshadow what's going on in this country and ultimately players decided to play. But when Jacob Blake was shot and that video dispersed in everyone saw it. You saw few NBA players including on the boxing should declaring and I think that led to a discussion especially with the bucks of saying, Hey, we got to do something more than wearing shirts kneeling during the national anthem and speaking out because we Want, more change and what we're doing right now is it working there players who are grieving and not as focused on playing sports at the moment and there are those who say who are responding and saying you know this is their job. I can't take this time off at my job, and then there are those defending the athletes saying, well, this is their brief period and they're taking time off they're gonNA come back but. What do you get the sense athletes are saying, do they feel an obligation to play through the grief or is it sort of split I? Think there are a number of athletes that do feel an obligation to play they see it as part of their job recede as part of what they love to do. But I think there is a critical distinction that exists between people who are saying, maybe we shouldn't play and others criticizing them for. I think that what is hard for some people to understand is that for a number of black athletes, the shooting of a young black men in their community is like shooting of a family member is like a shooting of someone who could be their brother their son. So when Jacob Lake was shot so brutally by an officer tugging his shirt when there seemed to be so many other options to achieve whatever police wanted to achieve in that situation I think there were a number of players and still. Continue to be a number of players that are grieving as if they lost a family member, and so I think when I see other people say and I think when athletes the other people say this is your job and she'd go back and play. You don't know what happened yet I. Think they might be missing the point of imagine if this happened to someone in your community that you care for doesn't matter well, imagine how hard it be for you to resume doing what you do at a high. Level, we've heard a lot of high profile sports figures say they want open up a dialogue and there people asking who do they want to open up a dialogue with team owners, league executives, politicians, or is it more general? Anonymous targeted isn't more mixed I think they're still trying to figure that out I. think there was a sense among many black athletes want to have this discussion that things are changing. Maybe things are getting better. My voices being heard then this happened and it felt like people really. Understand what we want to say it's like asking somebody to form a coalition and have a mantra and a business plan in four days I don't think that's going to happen. But I think the problem is there are a lot of other people out there who are expecting at the Hafer that takes time to come together. Then there are others who are saying well, George Floyd was killed and others have been killed wire some athletes, those sort of trying to figure out what they want to do about it. It's a work in progress. Now, in terms of who they want to talk to I think we're seeing definitely a groundswell of black athletes wanting to change laws wanting to speak directly to politicians and wanting to have a conversation with America about getting people to understand why this isn't just another incident of killing an were protesting and you've heard us, and now let's move on on the show that you co host outside the lines talk about societal issues intersecting with sports a lot and I I'm. As a journalist and a person of color how has this moment been different for you? Personally something about this moment has made it very hard to do my job in many ways I. Think we're all trained to be unbiased world trained to try to bring about both sides and I stay focused on that I'm talking about it does feel personal what happened to George? Floyd? It does feel like this could be made as could be my son. So it makes it hard to be able to have discussions from a variety of different angles, but also to get people. To understand why that is for. So many people I think that's part of the journalists obligation. It's not taking a side. It is trying to explain as we're doing this conversation why athletes and others are having your feelings that they're feeling. If you look outside looking in, you would say there's a large portion of the society that really hurt him in the same way that people are hurting in other ways and we've got that here those courses of society. It's a journalist job to try to bring out all of those stories. I think what we're seeing is a renaissance. Evident every athlete is feeling that they can be passionate and outspoken about what they believe in part of the narrative about then can be beyond this sport they play and I. think that's just unique in history. We've always seen athletes here and they're doing different things, Muhammad Ali, obviously all down history but we've never seen a groundswell of support from all athletes even some willing to put their careers on the line to make these kinds of statements and I think that's a positive thing for society that was ABC's Ryan Smith Legal.

This is perspective this week stories and why they matter I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up teachers getting ready for a school year like no other that I. The country experiences some of its biggest tropical storms around this time of year. This is about the time that Hurricane Katrina struck in two, thousand, five followed shortly thereafter. My Hurricane. Rita. This year it was Laura barreling its way up the Texas Louisiana border leaving flooding wind damage and overall destruction in its path. ABC's Jim Ryan is covered dozens of hurricanes for us here at ABC News and as usual he was there for the worst of this. Four storm with winds clocked at one, hundred, fifty miles per hour. The category for Hurricane Laura is the most powerful storm to strike Louisiana coast since eighteen, fifty, six as measured by wind speed here in Lake Charles trees are bending over at right angles and debris is racing through the streets writing on powerful gusts and smashing against the sides of buildings. The wind was pelting the sides of Gyms Hotel on the storm surge was rising. But this time he experienced something different scream of wind and the banging of debris against the sides of this building the hotel itself was creaking in the wind. Now it's all. Stop it suddenly very quiet outside as I look at the radar APP on my phone it's clear I mean the eye of the hurricane for the people of Louisiana Twenty Twenty hurricane season presented a new challenge evacuating amidst the pandemic Jim Ryan was also there as people weighed their options staying put or taking their chances of covid nineteen ordering constituents to leave their homes is never a step that government leaders want to take.

This would you deal with neighbors are planning on staying also so we'll just be altogether and help each other. The best we can Jim Ryan ABC News Lake Charles Louisiana. This is why these evacuations why this storm matters with. So many Americans out of work there's been a lot of concern about paying rent and mortgages. The city of New Orleans has a large low-wage population they faced a lot of job. Losses and other hardships during the pandemic hundreds of renters have received eviction notices there and local advocates and officials say we should expect worse as the hurricane season really gets going Emily Benn for is a lawyer and CO founder of the Vixen lab a covid nineteen housing policy scorecard. She spoke to ABC News about millions of possible evictions taking place across the country the United States is facing the most severe. Housing prices our country has ever seen approximately thirty to forty million children and adults are facing eviction right now to put this in perspective in the entire year of two, thousand, sixteen, three, point, six, million addictions were filed. One third of Louisiana's population is African American in New Orleans it's nearly two-thirds communities of color at extremely high risks and addiction even before the pandemic, The Wall Street Journal Report of this. Week New Orleans is one of the most susceptible places in the country for mass evictions. Louisiana's ban on vacations during the pandemic expired in June and the grace period for a separate federal eviction moratorium just expired this week. The mayor of New Orleans is asking for donations to raise money for tenants who can't pay the rent since forty four percent of the state's rent. A residents are considered housing cost burden. And Louisiana has some of the lowest unemployment benefits of any state most tenants move out voluntarily when receiving an eviction notice and if they don't the government will step in. Over the past two weeks, there's been a lot of discussion about how different the national political conventions have become as a matter of fact, over the past four years, there's been a lot of discussion about how different the political parties have become Donald Trump has reshape the Republican party and Fox News has had a lot to do with that. Brian stelter is. CNN's chief media correspondent. He's out with a new book on the relationship between the president and the network. Now, a lot of people say that CNN has transformed just as much as Fox has in the exact opposite direction. I asked him about that when we discussed his book this week this book about Fox News or is it more of a about President trump? I think it's a book about the trump vacation of Fox and the Fox vacation of America they go hand in hand. But what I think is the untold story of the trump years is Fox's influenced. So so I would say this is a book about how Fox has changed and how Fox has also changed trump You know at this point I'm not. Sure where Fox ends and trump begins. One of the things that you talk about your book is that when Roger Ailes left Fox, it was almost like a rudderless shop. There was really no one in charge and a lot of the insiders you talked to at Fox News. We're saying we're not sure what's going on at a Tori Lee. So what you've found out What happened with Rodriguez in two thousand and sixteen decades of abuse was exposed because Gretchen Carlson sued ails brought his abuse into the light other women came forward and testified his harassment and assaults, and of course, he was forced out of his job. He died a year later and I thought interviewing sources of Fox. They would say good riddance we are so glad he was finally removed but. Instead, a lot of people there said at least he was in charge at least he was a strong leader. Yes he was a bully, but at least he was our bullet there's been a leadership vacuum at Fox ever since hails was forced out by the way. That's else's fault because he never groomed a strong successor I definitely put that on him as well as the Murdoch's with the point. Here is that trump was able to fill that leadership vacuum? He basically had star at Fox. News say we always produced the network for an audience of one Roger Ailes and when Ales was out, we started to produce it for Donald Trump instead. So there's still an audience of one but now it's trump. Let's talk about the relationship between Donald, trump and Fox News when he goes on the. The morning show Fox and friends in the morning. You know he he just basically blows up all the programming that they had planned because he'll stay on there for all the time I remember the first time he did that during his first year in office and we were here in our newsroom listening going. Oh my gosh she's still on he's still on a and that was Kinda like. Invitation to just keep doing that in some ways I'm glad Fox just gives them the time because we get to hear what trump is really like on the phone. This is how he talks with his friends and his advisors like Sean Hannity just rambles and rambles. Privately. He's a run on sentence. One of my favorite quotes in the book is on page two, hundred, Fifty, eight it's from faulk staffer who says when I was working on this person says when I work on Fox and friends and I know that trump is booked in the eight am our I don't bother working on my assignment for the end of the hour because I know that trump is going to talk until the end of the hour and then trump doesn't show up that person's like Oh God I gotta fill the segment. What am I going to do? What about the relationship between Sean Hannity and Donald Trump? It is a is a key relationship to understand the trump presidency because trump. Programs Hannity Show, and Hannity Helps Produce Trump's presidency. But I think this actually does a disservice to Fox into the country because Hannity feeds misinformation to trump and then trump feeds at right back to the rest of us for example, exaggerating what's happening in Portland and Seattle this summer it's not that these news events don't occur right? It's that Hannity blows them out of proportion spins them to be life and death stories, and it all plays into the presence law and order narrative. I think if the Hannity and the other stars of Fox were presenting more nuanced, more helpful, more accurate information then maybe the president would benefit, but instead he actually gets hurt when they try to help. Eight this is kind of your book, but is CNN what has happened to CNN because a lot of people will say that CNN. is now opposition news where it's taking a clear stand against president trump the exact opposite of what Fox News is doing. I would say Fox is unique in the news world because it is State supported. TV, it's not literally state run TV right but it is state supported because it's the favored network it promotes trump and trump promotes at trump sometimes lashes out at the news anchors because he wants them to be even more supportive but it is. Unprecedented in American history to have network in a president. So close I think what has happened with? CNN, and to some degree with all the other major networks is that we've been pushed into a position where we have to fact check. So aggressively, and so frequently because there's been so much confusion chaos and misinformation that's been coming from the trump White House it's not as if I WANNA. Go on TV and say the president lied today I still feel a little bit uncomfortable saying those words but when the lies are told dozens and dozens of times and he's been corrected so often At the point you have to call it what it is I I think what's happened with CNN and the trump ears is we're trying to call it what it is when Donald Trump was running for president. There's a lot of people have said if he loses he's going to start trump TV where plans for that that you've been hearing now now you know depending on what happens over the next three months I say at the end of hoax, there are billionaires standing by help ready to help trump, bankroll, a media empire, his own I had insiders say. To me things like trump wants control he wants trump TV. But of course, this has been talked about for years and has never come to pass right now he has web shows to promote his campaign but not many people are watching. I. Actually Think Fox, is bigger than trump at this point and if he were to lose the election and go off and law network I, think he would find it to be a very difficult thing to do. But look there is fear about inside. Fox? One of the stars they're said to me trump is like Fox's Frankenstein. Him. He's out of control and nobody knows what will happen when he leaves the White House CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter on his new book hoax Donald Trump Fox News and the dangerous distortion of the truth. This week, the CDC quietly changed its tune. Their website now says people who don't show rotavirus symptoms and may have been exposed to someone who has it don't need to get tested. It's quite a shift from the messaging. We heard the past five months and it concerns Dr Sheesh. Who heads up the Harvard, global health institutes about half of all spread happens from people who don't have symptoms and the idea that we're GONNA stop recommending those people get tested it will make the outbreak much much worse. Oh I. Think we're all baffled by this decision all this is something teachers have been thinking a lot about a schools reopen and. They in their students reenter classrooms earlier this summer are Brad milkey spoke with Florida fourth, Grade Teacher Meghan. Hanrahan. About reopening schools she was very concerned about reopening plans. Now, she's back in the classroom. She spoke again this week with ABC's Brad Milkey on our daily podcast start here start with what your class looks like how many students are sitting in there. I have twelve, which is definitely manageable for them to be spaced out about three feet. We were told to space out our desks and stagger them. So for instance, if you have a row than every other one is staggered forward or backwards, and in the size of our rooms, I would say about twelve to fourteen would fit doing that even their supplies are different the situation. With that, for example, I would always have been of sharpened pencils and they would just get up and get one and in order to kind of combat that I've decided to give all the kids mechanical pencils because I don't want them going to a communal pencil sharpener I clean up my area, the custodial staff cleans the doorknobs and the doors and the commonly touched things every day. The students get hand sanitizer anytime they leave or enter the room the school building the cafeteria anything. I've gone through a half, a bottle of hand sanitizer. Are they wearing masks or the kids do have masks on and they are told it? It is required. They're getting more used to it. I think but it is a hard thing to police once they are in a larger group. For example, at recess, we have you know the great level outside together. So the process for that is they can take it off, but they have to be spaced out and you know right when you go outside, we're in central Florida. In August, they take off their masks and then you know they just magnets their children, the younger the harder. I am still not comfortable with it. There are school is about thirty percent occupied with face to face students. I told my parents who live in south Florida I'll. Hopefully. Maybe I'll see them Thanksgiving or Christmas I. Just I don't feel comfortable after being exposed. Are they moments the day where you're like Oh if that kid had Kovic like I've got Cova you're sitting in a room with however many students between ten and twenty one and it math and I look at a student who is just not understanding I'm going to go over to him and help him and manipulate his hand and move his hand on a police value chart. For example, you can't do that without touching were being in contact with their belongings. So yes. So, how are you envisioning the rest of the month or the school year playing out? Yes. So I have no idea I mean. I assume at some point, we'll be back to being virtual if A. Staff member or student. Test. Positive Megan Hanrahan. Thank you so much for conduct. And be well. Thank he ran. Finally this week, we're going to talk a little bit about masks, cloth masks or disposable surgical masks. Blue side out always have to remember blue side out can ever remember that they aren't effective way to stop you from spreading the coronavirus onto others. Especially, if you don't know you have it, you've been told that many times over past five months. But now doctors are talking about the effectiveness of protecting you from not only giving the virus you can be protected from getting it to but the University of North Carolina's Dr Richard Boucher says that's only if You put the Dang thing over your nose things likely started in the nose and the knows basically is purveyor of all viral Il factor Eamon with the ABC News Medical Unit Puts It. Another way people don't realize that are knows has a lot of receptors more so than we have in our lungs in our lower respiratory tract. So you at a higher risk of catching the virus if the virus enters your nose doctor, Boucher says given a choice between the lungs and the lower respiratory tract the virus appeared to pick the knows as a fertile ground. Infection? Yeah. Even doctors get to make puns now and again during pandemics in reality though maybe this will get you to put on that mask over your nose because it really does seem to work both ways wearing a mask if you're infected, are you protect your fellow citizens the end versus also true if you're wearing a mask, you protect yourself. So put it on poet up over your nose. Yeah. We know it's a little hard to breathe nothing about the coronavirus pandemic is ideal but in this case, covering your nose, a little double nostril super receptor in between your eyes could actually save your life.

Our duty is to remember, Robert Muller, speaks out, if we had had called confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, said, family attorney general respond. We didn't agree with the legal analysis. And. Just need land is flooded by Star Wars fans. The people that events that made headlines when world news this week continues.

Or are you going to talk to moan? I look forward to listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. The week started with President Trump overseas. The president made a four day visit to Japan to talk trade and assure the longtime ally facing renewed aggression from North Korea. ABC's Tara Palmeri traveled with the president to Tokyo? President Trump breaking with his own advisers and his host the Japanese Prime minister by downplaying North Korea's recent missile tests. My people think it could have been a violation, as you know, I view it differently. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abay, and Trump's national security advisor John Bolton have both warned that North Korea's missile launches earlier this month violated, a UN Security Council resolution. Trump standing shoulder to shoulder with publicly contradicting that all I know is that there have been no nuclear tests. They've been no ballistic missiles, going out there have been no long range missiles going out. And I think that some day, we'll have a deal. I'm not. In a rush. President Trump also weighing a deal with Iran just days after his administration ordered fifteen hundred additional troops into the Middle East. We're not looking for regime change. I just want to make that clear. We're looking for no nuclear weapons presidents, four day state visit to Japan marked with spectacle, sumo grand champion, I hereby award. You the United States Presidents Cup presented an award to sumo wrestlers took southeast with Ave on a golf course and met with the new Japanese emperor who Trump toasted with champagne. But while the trip was meant to show solidarity with Japan, the president cited with North Korea on another issue praising Kim's attack on one of his democratic rivals. Former vice president, Joe Biden Kim Jong statement that Joe Biden is a low IQ individual. He probably is based on his record. I think I agree with him on that. The Biden campaign waited to respond until after the president returned to the US citing longtime. Protocol about criticizing the president while overseas. They later released a statement calling the president's conduct beneath the dignity of the office, adding quote to be on foreign soil on Memorial Day and two side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American, and former vice president speaks for itself missile launch apparently not the only sign North Korea's leaders unhappy with the state of negotiations reports ABC's David right after the Hanoi summit abruptly ended without success. Sometimes you have to walk one month later, North Korea's lead negotiator was summarily executed, along with four other officials from the foreign ministry. The negotiators name has Kim. He'll cho- he and the others accused of spying for the US now described an official news reports as turncoats traders and counter revolutionaries. That's the same language the regime used to describe Kim's, uncle half, brother and nephew when they were killed off in an earlier purge. Urge. Meanwhile, Kim Jong UN's former right hand man Kim, Young shoal, who met with President Trump at the White House earlier this year has reportedly been sent to a forced labor camp along with the main North Korean translator for the summit, South Korean report, detailing, all this is unconfirmed. And there's been no official comment either from South Korea or from the State Department with the president overseas. Vice President, Mike Pence took over duties this Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice their duty was to serve. Our duty is to remember the vice president delivering remarks at Arlington cemetery. This Memorial Day never fail to strive. Each and every day. To be worthy of the freedom that they want for assaults stories of soldiers sacrifice while promising to continue the administration's goal, to bring all soldiers remained back to US soil prior to delivering the remarks. He laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier three and Marshall ABC news Washington. The president address troops at a naval base in Japan ahead of his visit a tarp was placed over the name of the USS. John McCain, the destroyer is named after the late Republican Senator who was a fierce critic of the president ABC's Mary, Bruce reports from Washington. The McCain name was obscured, because of an order from the White House that said the destroyer needs to be out of sight, when navy leadership learned of the directive, though that tarp was taken down before the president arrived. And according to the navy all ships remained in normal configuration during the president's visit, I don't know what happened. I wasn't involved but the president says whoever did give that order meant well, they would do me a favor because they know I am not a fan of John. A game. John McCain killed out care for the Republican party, and he kills health care for the nation. Mccain died from brain cancer in August his daughter. Megan says the continued attacks against her father, make it impossible to grieve because the president is so obsessed with the fact that he's never going to be a great man. Like he was. Yeah, so it actually. The USS John McCain remain stationed in Japan. It's being repaired after 2017 collision that killed ten US sailors, the mother of one of those sailors, petty officer, first class, Kevin bushel tells ABC news, the president's focus should be on the sailors that lost their lives and not about the tender ego of this president because he is threatened by the late Senator McCain, the president returned home on Tuesday the next day. The Justice department announced special counsel, Robert Muller plan to make a statement. Ninety minutes later Muller was standing behind a podium. ABC news senior national correspondent Terry Moran in Washington with what Muller had to say after two years of deafening. Silence. Now, former special counsel, Robert Muller's, spoke out say he would have made it clear if his investigation had led to the conclusion that the president did not commit a crime, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so citing a longtime department of. Justice policy, Robert Muller says his office didn't have the authority to charge the president of the United States with a federal crime under longstanding department policy. President president cannot be charged with a federal crime, while he is in office that is unconstitutional, instead, pushing the decision to congress, the constitution requires a process other than the criminal Justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing. Nevertheless, the White House is claiming victory. But the number of Democrats calling for impeachment continues to grow they heard something very different in Muller statement, and as the outgoing special counsel leaves the Justice department, he's issuing this final warning. There were multiple systematic efforts to interfere in our election. And that allegation deserves the attention of every American Muller statement made clear he attorney general William bar. Are not on the same page in all aspects of the Russia investigation bar responded. The next day, two days after Robert Muller explained how a Justice department policy prevented him from even considering whether President Trump obstructed Justice. Attorney general William Barr told CBS news Muller. Got it wrong. We didn't agree with the legal analysis. A lot of the legal analysis in the report, did not reflect to these the department. It was the views of a particular lawyer, or lawyers, it was bar who decided President Trump did not obstruct Justice after Muller expressed reluctance to testify before congress bar said he would leave the decision to Muller. It's up to Bob, but I think the line, he's drawing, which is that he's going to stick to what he said in the report is in the proper line for any department official house. Democrats have not said whether they would subpoena mother to testify Aaron Katersky, ABC news.

Full Episode: Friday, December 10, 2019

"From ABC News World News this week. I'm Daria Albinger in New York coming up. Tensions rise then fall between Iran and the US millions mourning the death of custom Soleimani. And you want palliative with Mrs Strikes. As Iran is hit with more sanctions. The House passes the War Powers Act but corporate resolution is adopted in one two nine alleys. US intelligence reports that. Mrs Strike brought down. Ukrainian commercial jet towering my ear Inn old seawater out a major Egypt earthquake in Puerto Rico and there were Uber for toilet paper. This'll be the tech world. Show is off some new gadgets with world news this week continues. That is the sound of a missile that Iran launched this week into Iraq. A handful all of them were launched to hitting US military positions strike. Was it the Al.. Assad ed western Iraq the second attack. It's Erbil international airports here in northern Iraq less than two miles away from where I'm standing right now where we heard three explosions. ABC's Ian Panel in Erbil Iraq this protesters and mourners for general enroll constant. So the money took to the streets throughout Iran in some of the money's hometown dozens were killed in a stampede. Iranians also furious over the suggestion made by president trump that the US would target more than fifty cultural and heritage sites in Iran. That's considered a violation of international law. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent. Martha Raddatz sat down with Iran's foreign minister. Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran before the strikes were he explained and what missteps the US made and current responsibility for murdering in a terrorist operation on. I wonder why highest ranking in foreign territory about read it says the strike itself only targeted. US military bases and there were no no casualties saw all week the emotion in this country for the loss of Sulaymaniyah millions taking to the streets and shouting for revenge but the Iranian officials had to know that they would be ending up a huge conflict if they made a very very massive attack somewhere where so they walked that line very well immediately following the strikes many here in the US were waiting to see what our response would be whether any more troops would be sent to the region. The president took a path to de-escalate tensions and appears to be standing down. which is a good thing for all parties concerned at a very very good thing for the world and the president? Speaking from the White House also had this message for Iran. We want you to have a future and a great future one one that you deserve one of prosperity at home in harmony with the nations of the world the United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it but the president and other White House officials also announcing a new round of economic sanctions in response powerful sanctions will will remain until Iran changes. Its Behavior Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin went into detail. About who the sanctions will target. You're taking action. Shen against eight senior Iranian officials who advance the regime's destabilizing activity and were involved in Tuesday's ballistic missile strike the the sanctions. Also targeting those involved in Iran textiles manufacturing or construction sectors. These are in addition to the sanctions already imposed on Iran after the US left the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal ABC's Karen Travers says the president's tone took a measured difference from when tensions. I escalated president's message was really aimed at dialing down the tensions between the US and Iran. But it really felt like an abrupt shift after a week of fiery threats from the president and the president promising Missing retaliation. I mean he said if Iran hit American assets the US would hit back very fast and very hard. That's what they did this week. But the president didn't said Iran appears to be standing down which is kind of ironic because it was Iran who fired last but it did give the president a chance to take the first step back from the brink of all allow war but all out war and a prolonged oral. So the very thing that members of Congress wanted to avoid so this week the house adopted a war powers resolution that would require the president to seek approval from Congress for certain military action against Iran. The as are two hundred and twenty four and the nays these are one hundred ninety four the current resolution is adopted. The resolution was born out of concern after thousands. More troops troops were deployed to the region. Last week so LEMONIS death and the Iranian Strikes House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi say the president's actions endangered. US service members and diplomats. That's one of the reasons house. Democrats and some Republicans approved a resolution requiring the president to get congressional approval for any future military terry action against Iran that lasts longer than thirty days. The Whitehouse calling the war powers resolution quote ridiculous and completely misguided. ABC's Sees Megan to house speaker. Nancy Pelosi explaining further to reporters. You have no illusions about Iran. No illusions about so lamantia was a terrible. Herbal Person. Did bad things. But it's not about how bad they are. It's about how good we are. Some lawmakers also concerned about the information nation they heard in a closed briefing with trump administration officials the briefing was meant to give the justification for the strike that killed the money but a handful of Republican senators. who were in that briefing said? They weren't convinced senators rand. Paul and Mike Lee are simply furious and supporting this resolution to curb the president's power specifically because of what they heard or didn't hear from the administration because they say the answers from the administration about their plan in Iran were so unsatisfactory Lee. Actually called it one of the worst briefings he's ever received. ABC's Mary Bruce but Republicans firing back saying. The president made the right call in the house. Floor debate congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina. Said Sulejmani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans. I would ask my colleagues opposite. How many Americans do the terrorists have to kill before they join with us is six hundred? Not Enough and congressman. Michael McCall of Texas argued that the president didn't choose to escalate the situation further so the resolution is meaningless not seeking war with Iran. The president has shown if anything great restraint the resolution is non binding and would likely get vetoed by the president. Should it land on his desk. But that wasn't the end to the controversy surrounding the Iranian government. Iran has denied any intentional involvement in the deadly crash of a Ukrainian airliner. The jet crashed outside Iran around the same time. Ron was launching missiles so in Iraq. We do believe that it's likely that plane was shut down by an Iranian missile state. Mike Pompeo US official tells ABC News that the Ukrainian passenger plane that crashed Wednesday Z.. Morning in Iran was highly likely shot down by the Iranian military according to the US official US intelligence is confident that Iran painted the Ukrainian airliner with radar and fire. You're to surface to air missiles zipper down the aircraft killing all one hundred seventy six people aboard including eighty Iranians and sixty three Canadians. The intelligence assessment was later publicly confirmed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence. The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by Iranian surface to air missile. This may well have been unintentional. The crash occurred about three hours after a run had fired multiple missiles into Iraq targeting military bases were. US troops are located in what appeared to be retaliation. The recent American drone strike that killed one of Iran's top generals or Indian officials had been quick to blame the crash on a technical problem and rejected the idea that it could have been struck by a missile all Louie Martinez. ABC News Pentagon. But the Iran crisis wasn't the only hot topic on Capitol Hill. This Week House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi now saying the articles of impeachment will head to the Senate next week. They're the president's impeachment trial will get underway. ABC's and as delivered. Tara has more in a letter to house. Democrats House Speaker Nancy. Pelosi Lucy says the house will vote on impeachment managers next week. which is the formal step? The House must take to transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate the move means the president's and Senate trial could start by mid week. Democrats will further discuss next steps in the impeachment process during their closed door caucus meeting on Tuesday morning in as delicate Tara. ABC News Washington Tower Room here in hold. San Juan is out vacationer. In Puerto Rico recounts the aftermath with a major six point four magnitude earthquake that left widespread damage in its wake new quake's epicentre near the southern end of the island a series of damaging aftershocks also making matters worse this woman was being interviewed by TV crew when one aftershock hit I I I. If I'm Lana Adlawan Landau and power plant was also damaged badly during the tremors. ABC's victor a Kendo is in Puerto Rico and said the scenes are eerily familiar for residents. Were in one neighborhood on the southwest side of the island in a city called Guanaco got and this neighborhood is pitch black rashy standing right in front of a house that was leveled. The homeowner says he left the night before and when he returned in the morning it it was just flattened we spoke with one. EMS official down. Here there's no running water. There's no electricity with no sign of when it will return and with so many flattened houses around on what they tell me is that it's basically. They are reliving. The aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The Coast Guard is on hand to help those who were displaced. One person has died a major shakeup in the British Royal Family Prince Harry and his wife Megan markle releasing a statement this week saying they will step back from their roles. A senior members of the royal family. The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex also said they want to split their time between the UK and North America. ABC's James Longman as more the royal family in crisis mode after after Harry and Meghan bombshell announcement role sources confirming to ABC News. Harry defied a direct order from the queen to keep discussions about taking a step back private. Now she's leading four way talks with Harry Prince Charles and Prince William in a desperate attempt to find a workable solution within days. Harry had been in talks with his Fola Prince Charles for months about a change of role shells urging his son to come up with a more detailed plan. And that's win. Sources say Harry took things into his own hands ends and questions over just what a couple means when they say they want to become financially independent. How can they reduce their roles while still being funded by the tax tax payer police protection and their home in Windsor for example? Refurbish for around. Five million dollars for that use all costs picked up by the British public. Harry has acknowledged the pressure of public life and so too late mother when she gave this advice during an interview with Panorama. If you find someone you love life you must hang onto it. Look after it and you're very lucky to find so if you're lucky enough to find someone who loves you. Though almost protected hurry seems to be following his mother's advice. ABC's Cecilia Vega talked to ABC. Royal's contributor Victoria Murphy. About just how big of a shakeup. This isn't what it could mean for the future of the Royal Family. How damaging could this end up being for the Royal Royal Family? It's obviously a hugely damaging for the royals to have this obvious conflicts between the Sussex's and the rest of the roles played out in the public domain. That statement statement by Harry and Meghan haughtily blindsided the rest of the family. I was speaking to people in. It's been made very clear to me that they were not aware of the content of the statement before it was released. They knew the Sussex wanted to do things differently but discussions were at a very early stage. And that's created a huge sense of disappointment among the royals Harry and Meghan have essentially put wishlist into the public domain before anything has been sorted out and now any negotiations that do take place thinks about what their role may be and how what they want can be made to work will now be thrashed out and the fact that they were blindsided by this. What does that tell you that? What was what was happening behind the scenes? I think it tells you that. The success obviously operating entirely separately to the rest of the family. They went onto head and released this statement even though they had not consulted with the royal family. And that of course is not what the royal family wants to see. They want us to see them putting on a united united front. They want to sort these things out behind closed doors and then appear with the solution publicly and they want us to know about all the conflicts and all the negotiations that that has to go on. But it's become undeclared because the Sussex has released that statement that there is a huge conflict daddy's going on now that is very much laid bare for all to see victory. We know that Harry and Meghan of talked about their frustrations publicly with the press. The Harry's even called out the press for racist undertones in their coverage of of what role race played in this decision. Yeah well we know that that very unhappy with so many aspects of the coverage. They have called about racism and undetermined racist undertones and comment pieces. They've said they've also caught out outright racism on social media that also very unhappy about other things. They haven't liked the fact that they've been inaccurate stories. That stories have been repeated across the Internet without being checks. The way that her father has been contacted by the media has made them very unhappy so there are a lot of factors at play there but we do know that a big part of this decision is to do with the relationship with the media. They have devoted a whole sectioned. Their new website on how they want to reframe their relationship with the media and remove themselves from a system that now that currently gives the British media and preferential access whether or not table to do that or not remains to be seen wildfires as large as a state of Maryland in golfing. Parts of Australia firefighters still battling unfavorable conditions nations and dozens of people have died. ABC's Maggie Rulli is in Australia and reports of a warning for US tourist. That new level to warning means that any American planning a trip to Australia right now is urged to postpone their visit. If they're planning to come to an area that's been affected by these wildfires. It's believed more than fifteen million acres have have burned. At least twenty. Five people have died and thought that more than one billion animals have been killed. Wildlife experts. Australia warned that ecological emergency is at hand and Nick. Davos is with the Toronto Zoo in Sydney. And he says do the how these wildfires are moving in spreading entire species could be wiped out what we're finding is that there's often these isolated alighted populations and so if it does move through that instead of taking a few from lodge gene pool it unfortunately can take out in Population Connecticut. Police arrested photos Dulas and charged with murder in connection with the killing of his wife. Jennifer here's ABC's Aaron Katersky with more family of Jennifer Dulas thanked the police for the work that led to the arrest of her estranged husband and his girlfriend although relieved they no longer have to wait for criminal charges. Her relatives said for us. There is no sense of closure. Nothing can bring. I'm Jennifer back. She vanished may twenty four th after dropping her five kids at school when she returned home.

There's been a lot of agony inside of facebook from the people inside of facebook Who say that? The teams are very divided over what they should do it. Keeping political ads around is important to facebook because politicians could regulate the company by keeping things the way they are at the very least there are keeping the party. That's in power for the most part in Washington happy which might be able to help them against any push towards regulation outside of Washington however things aren't so happy they're trying to anger the fewest people people possible? I'm not sure if that's actually working. It seems like they're really just angering everyone. I'm Cheri Preston. ABC News a glimmer of good news.
