Also says there is no way to waive the minimum one thousand hours of student instruction. So they're going to have to figure out he says how best to accomplish that. Now, if they could be waived, can you get that done? They have to shave into the mid winter break, but not unheard of to cut short the spring break for some districts, if they definitely need to or just keep going on into the summer like at this point. Did also have teachers strike come as you mentioned. And so now, they they're really stuck in the fact that every day they're closed. They just have to tack on the other day. But superintendent says it would take legislative emergency action to limit or eliminate the one thousand hours minimum. However for a lot of the districts, they can go less than one hundred eighty days, and that kind of an automatic thing they can ask for with the state, and they'll get it. But again thousand hours you need to be in that classroom. Getting that instruction Keith's Mr. Reich doll bring up is there any possibility. They would ask kids to spend a few Saturdays between now and the end of the school year in a classroom to try to make up that time Saturday school has definitely been brought up. He doesn't know of any districts that have actually done that. And the question is do you want to give up your Saturday or do you want to give a few days of summer talked to one parent and Olympia where it was coming down really heavily today. And he. He was at home. A day off of work because kids are at home with him and the daycares are all closed for the same reasons. Schools are and he says it's becoming a hardship on parents, and you know, Saturday school might be an option, but he says when you go into the summertime all of a sudden cover vacations are impacted if you have trip from camps have certain schedules so Saturday school possibility, but the superintendent says he hasn't heard of that drastic of an action is yet another kind of mess related to the weather. We've been having over the last week. Komo's Keith Eldridge joining us from Puyallup key. Thanks so much. And CNN is reporting right now that GOP Senator Richard Shelby says negotiators have reached an agreement in principle.

"And the UK and other countries all nounce within twenty four hours their support for Venezuela's opposition the rest of the European European Union has been slow to respond initially refused to go that far on Thursday, though. There was a first step. The European parliament voted to recognize Mr. Guido as interim leader seven e you countries were named as members of an international contact group to facilitate new elections in the country with the possibility of more economic sanctions. If no progress were made 'Antonio Lopez is stories is Spanish EMMY MVP from the center, right E P P group. He voted himself to recognize Guido. And I asked him why his country Spain hadn't yet done. So all the common position all the European Union. Got the elections in may were fraudulent. Spain has given these eight. Jas prime minister has even sometime tomorrow to reconsider ambassador to call for some of our belief is losing he's not going to do it on Monday. If this is not the case, then screen automatically will recognize Chris reykdal. But what practical difference? Does it make that the European Union theoretically recognizes the opposition leader as head of state all the member countries will have to publicly state if they're going to be helping the new government the production of fair clean, transparent elections. Or they're going to take the role of the other countries like Russia, Nicaragua. Which by the way, are not very exemplary democracies to be. Little bit chromatic regimes that we all know which side, which mobile are we going to follow? And it's very clear. That many democratic makes us throughout the war like Canada, like the United States like many, Latin American countries, Australia are advocating that is the way of recognizing president. Why though yes? But what difference does it actually make what pressure? Does it actually put on nNcholas Maduro big presser you nominee internationally? He's finished his regime is finished. There is no right now except for Russia, China, and I know everybody tells me, they're very powerful countries. But of course, it's not our model. So here we are fighting for freedom and democracy and benefit ups. Also with populism that has been present in South America for a long time. This question of benefit essential to recover democracy and freedom for all Latin American countries in order for one Widodo to gain any power and real influence in Caracas. Shirley. Has to have more than words from world powers such as the European Union. Yeah. Of course, you know. It's very important in terms that the army tears, you know, also agents to the new president. I'm sure I'm have hoped that right now going on talks about this. Because also we want the army to fully recognize the new president unleashed essential to have. Not violent democracy in. What do you think will happen next will change come about? Let's say you're never done this in politics. My waist is that there's a Pacific insistent that there will be also under this new president new elections. And then the people have been to freely select their new president afterwards, and you happy that the EU sets itself once again on a foreign policy. Collision course with China and with Russia to win democracy and Venezuela. I have no doubt at all. I'm sorry, but the stem Warton collision with us that was Spanish MEP. Antonio Lopez is stories Tonj introduce or reintroduce our guests on the program today. They are as today. Karen, fun, hippo director general of the defense think tank Roussy and independent defense insecurity research center in London. John campfires here as well. British author and broadcaster, founder of the creative industries federation. Now, you're both here is experts, and I know Johnny already champion the importance of experts in public debate. But among many people that role makes you unpopular at the moment. How'd you counter Karen that negative view of the so-called liberally leaked at the moment? Yeah. I mean, I it's it's an interesting conversation. I was just in Davos, and sometimes when you talked about Davos, you feel like you need to whisper it behind closed doors because there's such a anti globalist elite sentiment on the other hand was he worth going? Yeah. I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot everything was streamed. So if you weren't invited and weren't a private company that could pay a lot of money, obviously from my point of view. I don't pay to go presumably didn't fly in on a private plane on a private jet. But we talked a lot about global warming. Anyone could watch what was going on anywhere in the world. There were a lot of discussions about refugees. There was really interesting conversations about AI about black women's faces not being recognized on a lots of different interesting conversations. But it's a learning experience, and it's sharing experiencing your networking with a lot of people who really matter many people's eyes the whole event was demolished by that clip on the went viral with a Dutch historian saying. The whole event was like a conference for firefighters not referring to water as the solution. He was saying here are all these rich destructive people talk about possible solutions for global warming. It was a waste of time is made argument was about tax, and he was saying that you cannot solve poverty. Unless you introduce the whole question of tax. Did he have a point has a huge point and tax avoidance, which is the legal side of tax evasion. And the whole question of our huge thick tech companies who pay just a absolute miniscule amount. And I think he was really onto something. But they've always rather mocking of a well, you might as well just invite Bono to do another sort of presentation on poverty mistakenly, a lot of casual observers might put you in the same bracket as the people that he was criticizing simply because you belong to a club of influential thinkers who think they should have a say because they are in possession of the facts. Well, it's like if you have a problem you want to go see a doctor you want your doctor to be trained. I mean, I have no problem with people going to university to learn something and universities are also considered. You know, elite bastions, but preferably you want your experts to know what they're doing to know something about the subject. Can you learn you can you teach yourself into a position where you're qualified to preach. I think that's the question. If you're armed with facts in education is that enough of a qualification to tell people what to think or perhaps frame the question in another way. The issue is not other so-called people with expertise in different areas every weekend. There are pundits on on soccer on other forms of sports. You have experts on fashion, you have experts on tack. That's not the issue in in my book, you want people you want people to know what's going on in all kinds of different walks of life is what is the access to those networks. Are they based around wealth of a based around where you are educated? All they based around that kind of thing as long as she's I'm still a massive. Ask those networks can be opened up to will come as where the issue is. What's in your brain, not not necessarily who is in your address book? Then that's an absolute key for me. I like to think that we don't preach rather that we tried to have a conversation and bring all the facts of the table. And then you make up your mind. Karen von hippo, and John camphor are not preaching on weekend this weekend. Now Yemen on the Gulf of Aden, and the Red Sea has been massively damaged by conflict began there in two thousand fourteen on one side of the who with links to Iran against them a coalition, including Yemeni government troops Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates supported by the Americans at least six thousand eight hundred civilians have been killed and ten thousand seven hundred injured in the fighting, according to the United Nations, thousands more civilians have died from malnutrition disease and bad health.

"Scott from our sister station, car radio. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. So what's the situation right now as it relates to school bonds, and how might legislation change it? So the situation now is that there's a school band bonds districts across the state are having a very difficult time getting them passed. They keep failing Bethel school district. Superintendent Tom Seagal says and they desperately need them to build new schools and buildings. You can go to buffalo high school and watch the water leak into the office. And you could just watch the water cascading down into a trash can. But why school really needs major work needs to be replaced? And the other buildings are just you know, are wearing out particular that really are kind of a bad shape. Now state Senator democratic Senator Lisa Wellman says other school districts have even bigger problems at some schools that reported we've got we've got collapsing ceiling is we've got leading the water because we've got old pipes that we need to really reengineer. We need a new building. Having a collapsing ceiling is not good. As far as kids are concerned. Now Bethel's just had its bond four hundred forty three million dollar bond. I believe for fourth time was on the November ballot it failed by just barely. And it'll be coming up again in the February ballot for the fifth time and it needs to pass according to Tom eventually ran out of the ability to stuff anymore kids into the classrooms. We currently have. And there is no bond then something's going to have to give an aborted. Records will have to make a decision based on input. They're getting from new citizens group there. Starting the questions you either have, you know, those sort of crazy solutions or you finally pass a bond and build the buildings in the three years later you suddenly the new building online it takes three years. Crazy ideas. He's talking about by the way are like scattered school times. Yeah. Elementary schools going from six to seven in the evening year round school, things like that. It's interesting because have they said at all whether or not they're willing to change the way, they go about promoting the bonds during the political campaign is this whole idea of, hey, they're not working our arguments on why we should pass a school bond isn't working. So let's make it easier to pass school bonds. It seems like that's the exact opposite thing that they should be doing which is hey, maybe just argue it a little bit differently. Well, and I think that there's some confusion among voters. I think a lot of voter stuff that mccleary covered all of the school funding that was needed right? They're playing more property taxes and things like that. I don't know that people understand why they need the bonds, and there's just old buildings and safety issues across the state. Here's the biggest issue with that that why the bonds are failing to this is very frankly, these super majority requirement that was inserted into the constitution. Nineteen forty four. As a result of World War Two. Continues to this day to really cause problems throughout the entire state kids end up in school buildings that are crowded or are unhealthy insecure or potentially dangerous or some cases. So there is a push now at both state schools chief, Chris reykdal. Several lawmakers who actually had been against the idea of changing it to a simple majority in the past have now gotten on board and Lisa Lohman. She has dropped a proposal to change it to a simple majority fifty plus one right down from that sixty percent because a lot of these Bethel's, especially I think baffles failed by fifty nine point one percent. So I was like nine percentage points short. But that's. Henna? But that's an indication of what I was talking about this whole idea of if they push just a little bit harder. We're not talking about having to overcome a huge percentage. We're talking about just a few hundred or sometimes it depending on the district. A few dozen more voters in your on your side. Well, but I, but his point is that why should the not the majority? It should be like anything else at this point the majority. It should be fifty plus one is who should be here fighting it, not the minority. The minority is designing. Here's why I think it's like that. And this would be my guess, it's because I don't have kids. And if it's fifty point zero one percent of the vote means I'm going to have to pay for more of something that I will never use. It's kind of unfair. And so I think it's trying to even things out a little bit. Yeah. Not only are you going to have to get the parents on board. But because these bonds impact everybody who lives in the district, you need to work a little bit harder to get people like me who's unloved and without children, and we'll probably forever be that way. And I'm so alone. That's probably why it's like this. But okay. So then alternatively to get some upgrades and building things then you can do a capital Levy like Seattle does. And if you have the higher tax base, then you you can get those passed in that only takes a simple majority. It makes a difference. So that's another one of his arguments at any rate. There's going to be this proposal to try to change it the one that's right now on the pre filed list is from Lisa Wellman again fifty plus one that is has to be a constitutional amendment though. So in the end voters across the state if this even gets out of the legislature would need to third of the legislature to sign off on any constitutional amendment. And then it has to go to voters who would have to prove it by a simple majority. We'll see how it ends up going. That's been Hannah Scott, she's actually pretending to be at the capitol. She's actually the studio right next to me. Sided to connect this way. Because it sounds a lot cooler come on hand. I can see you in the other room.
