"And I'm a Martinez in Culver City, California. The European Union has agreed to a plan that aims to cut gas consumption across Europe by 15%. This move comes the same week that Russian energy company Gazprom abruptly cut gas deliveries to Europe through one of its most important pipelines. NPR's rob schmitz joins us now from Berlin to talk about all this rob, the EU came to this agreement to quickly, but it did so after many of its members were able to get exemptions from having to make these cuts. So what did EU members agree to exactly? Yeah, you members agreed to cut their gas consumption by 15% in spirit, but it's important to note here that these cuts are voluntary. They stop being voluntary, though, should Russia create an energy emergency by making sudden cuts in gas supplies to Europe. And Russia did that, right? Yeah, that's right. Not only did they do it this week, but this goes back several weeks when Russian energy company Gazprom abruptly cut the flow of gas on its Nord stream one pipeline by half. And then earlier this month, the company simply cut off all the gas in the pipeline for a ten day period, and it resumed last week, but then it cut gas again this week. So as it stands, the pipeline which connects Germany to Russian gas is now flowing at 20% capacity. So given this as a backdrop, member states will now need to start looking for energy savings so that they can meet this 15% gas savings benchmark because many see future cuts from Moscow as likely. And if the Kremlin should do that in the winter when Europe needs more of its gas for heating, then we're looking at a more dire situation. Now we mentioned on the cuts that not all EU member states will need to make them. Tell us about the exemptions. Right. Yeah, there are several EU countries that are not burning Russian gas for electricity or heat, so they've been granted exemptions as have other countries that have already launched ambitious energy savings plans. I spoke to the German Marshall funds at Jacob Kierkegaard about this and here's what he said. So, you know, once you factor in all these exemption, it's pretty clear that the number of countries that have huge reliant on gas and none of these exemptions, what they're going to be bearing most of the pain or most of the burden here, and that is Germany, Austria, and others, precisely, frankly, the way it should be. In a Kierkegaard is not alone in this opinion, many in Europe believe Germany, which up to the war in Ukraine, relied on Russia for half its natural gas, should shoulder most of the burden here due to its risky decision to rely so heavily on Moscow for its energy in the first place. In fact, the original proposal was for all EU states to cut 15% of their gas consumption, but the southern European states that long ago decided not to rely on Russia for energy were angry saying they shouldn't have to pay for what they saw as Germany's energy mistakes. So then what is Germany doing to reduce that Russian gas reliance? Quite a bit. Germany's parliament has passed a law that will fast track construction of liquefied natural gas terminals with the first one scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. That gas will be imported from the Middle East and the United States. The government is also conducting an energy survey right now to explore whether it should extend the life of three nuclear power plants that are scheduled to close by the end of the year, and we will know more on that option in a few weeks.

"Live from NPR news and Culver City California, I'm Dwayne Brown. Authorities say the man charged with 7 counts of first degree murder for the Independence Day parade shooting outside Chicago gave police a voluntary confession, even identifying himself on surveillance video, dressed as a woman to conceal his identity, Robert cremo, the third made his first court appearance today. Authorities said he contemplated shooting up another event when he fled to Wisconsin but turned back from member station WBE, Mariah Wolfe, was in the courtroom. We heard essentially one or two words from him where he said that he did not have a defend attorney. He will be represented by the public defender in Lake county. Sat wearing a black shirt and just listened as the victim's names were read, really no reaction from him later we learned new information today that cremo actually wow police were searching for him. He drove to Madison and contemplated opening fire at an event in Madison, Wisconsin. Please found 83 bullet shells and three ammunition magazines on the rooftop they say, cremo fled from. The U.S. marshal service has arrested 1500 fugitives with help from the U.S. Justice Department. Here's NPR's Ryan Lucas. Attorney general Merrick Garland says operation north star targeted violent fugitives in ten cities, including Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, and Washington D.C.

"I'm Elsa Chang and Culver City California And I married Louise Kelly in Washington In Thompson Illinois There's a federal prison set aside for gang leaders and other men who are considered the most dangerous because they have caused violence at other prisons But sometimes men get sent who may be shouldn't be there Maybe because when they got attacked at another prison they fought back or because they have a mental illness and acted out Now imagine trying to survive at that prison where you were surrounded by men who want to attack you and guards who use harsh methods to control you And pure investigative correspondent Joseph Shapiro and Christy Thompson of the Marshall project investigated that prison and found frequent violence prisoners killing other prisoners A warning this story contains graphic descriptions of violence and abuse Here's Ampere's Joseph Shapiro Last summer Bobby Everson got transferred to the federal prison in Thompson Illinois In his letters home like this one read by his sister he started sounding more scared This facility is for disciplinary inmates I'm doing my best to stay out there way I'm just a couple of years to the door And then those letters started sounding more desperate I got into it with a few officers in a few guys in here Just keep checking up with me At this prison Just days before Bobby Everson died he wrote that corrections officers had it out for him They had given him a new cellmate It was someone he told his cousin he was afraid of And I got in a little scuffle with another dude They put me in the cell with I feel the staff here is purposefully trying to put me in situations of conflict I'm doing all I can to stay out the way Pray for your little cousin that I get through unscathed An investigation by NPR and the Marshall project finds that the U.S. prison at Thompson Illinois is one of the deadliest and most dangerous in the country Prison records say 7 prisoners have died violently since March of 2020 In 2016 we investigated violence at an earlier version of that disciplinary unit That one was at lewisburg Pennsylvania Then the federal government shut it down and moved it to Thompson Now at the new prison we found more violence and more killings caused by the same problems of two men locked down for 23 hours a day or more in one small cell about the size of a parking space Of men placed in restraints often painful four point restraints for hours or days Of corrections officers putting two men together who they had reason to believe would fight The chaplain had called me On December 16th Sabrina Everson got a phone call from the prison chaplain at Thompson About her son Bobby who the family called AJ He said he was sorry to inform me that they had found AJ on They found him unresponsive in his cell at 9 a.m. in the morning That's ebony ever since sister Yeah Yeah When the body was returned to them in Syracuse New York they saw the many cuts and bruises to his face and body At one point a federal agent told them that Everson had died as a result of blunt force trauma But that's it They can't get any other details not even the death certificate More than 5 months after ever since death Not even after calling and calling The funeral home director back near the prison he's trying to help Yes yes I just checked this past week They're not available to us yet But I would expect them to not be too long So within a couple of weeks NPR knows more of the details than ever since family because the day after he was attacked in his cell another prisoner wrote a letter The hill says he was a witness to the death of Bobby AJ Everson A young prisoner was killed and sailed F three 13 Amen himself 15 That someone reading the letter from hill we knew hill and he knew us because we interviewed him for our stories about abuse of the prison at lewisburg His description of how Everson died is disturbing For one thing Everson was small and slight about 5 foot 6 inches tall Hill says the summit is a large man heavy and tall The bureau of prison says it can't talk to us about a pending investigation Hill says corrections officers should have known ever since was in danger because the cellmate was telling them He was going to get violent He had been telling the COs for two weeks Get the dew out of his sail or he'd kill him He told us the numeracy oaths even on the night it happened at 10 o'clock he told the seal during his rounds to get him out the sail or he would kill him Hill says corrections officers ignored the threat and even worse on the night of the killing one corrections officer even encouraged the cellmate the CO totem Just do it Do it The CO then slammed the metal flap close over the window the cell door window We're not naming the man who hill says killed Everson because he hasn't been charged with a crime But hill says other prisoners fear that man He had at least at a minimum at least ten different fights with ten different inmates He had numerous assaults on the staff That's Demetrius hill Recently he was transferred from Thompson I spoke to him on the phone about the death of Bobby H J Everson To force this kid in the cell with this madman they knew the results He had just beaten another prisoner who had been in the cell with him I'm talking about maybe two weeks maybe two weeks prior another prisoner I don't know his name and he was beating that inmate for days on end Days on it he was beating that prison Finally they took him out and stuffed loopy in it Loopy That's the nickname Bobby Everson used in prison On this and some of the details we've been able to confirm hill's story is accurate We found federal bureau of prisons documents that list ever since death as a homicide Even though the BOP had not said that publicly NPR was not able to independently verify other details of hill's account He will also wrote letters to a federal judge in Illinois with some of these same details We asked for more confirmation from BOP and the FBI which is responsible for investigating ever since death did the cellmate kill Everson was the cellmate known to be violent Both the BOP and the FBI said they can't discuss a matter under investigation I was scared for him 'cause we don't know what's happening in them prisons you know That's ever since father Also named Bobby Everson The family wanted to know more I read part of the hills letters to them About how he says their son died and about how he was terrorized in those last weeks by his cellmate and Whoopi stayed in his bed pressed to the top monk Clearly spooked.

"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm also Chang and Culver City California and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer in Washington It was not the right decision Those are the words of the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety today They came after he revealed that law enforcement waited more than an hour to enter a classroom in uvalde Texas and kill a gunman who was shooting children inside It was not the right decision because they were still children alive inside some of them calling 9-1-1 over and over again asking for help For more on this we are joined by NPR's Adrian Florida who is in uvalde hydrin Hi Sasha I don't know how to describe these new details except horrifying Tell us what the police are saying about how this unfolded inside rob elementary school Well officials are saying that just before 1130 on Tuesday morning this gunman crashed his truck outside the school started shooting at the school and then got into the school through a side door that a teacher had left propped open just moments before he encountered no resistance on his way into the school He made his way into one of two classrooms that were connected by a shared bathroom between the two and he started shooting the kids inside Two Yuval the police officers arrived minutes later the gunman shot at them and because of that they held back and then border patrol agents started to arrive 19 officers were in the hallway outside this classroom for about an hour and all the while they did not try to go in and take this gun and out And how do they explain that decision to hold back for so long Well at a press conference today the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety Stephen McCrory said that it was because they didn't know that there were children in danger Here's some of what he said The answer in commander considered a barricaded subject and that there was time and there were no more children at risk Obviously you know based upon the information we have the work children in that classroom that we're.

"And I'm a Martinez and Culver City California If the Supreme Court overturns roe versus wade many states can end or curtail access to abortion almost immediately because of what are known as trigger bans 18 states have trigger laws to ban abortion if roe is overturned or have pre row abortion ban still in the books The gut mocker institute is an abortion rights advocacy group that tracks legislative efforts nationwide Its principal policy associate for state issues Elizabeth Nash joins now Elizabeth Is it fair to define trigger laws as the name of a law that's unenforceable but might become enforceable if things change If key circumstance change Exactly What we're talking about are abortion bans that were signed into law and only go into effect if roe V wade is overturned So they don't have a normal effective date like say July 1st Okay so based on that then explain how states are already set to restrict access to abortions if rho is reversed So what we have are 13 states that have these so called trigger bans right They go into effect if rho is overturned And then you have sort of some nuance in when they go into effect because there are three of them they go into effect immediately another 7 that go into effect upon the attorney general's certification and then another three that go into effect 30 days after the Supreme Court issues its decision But in all told all 13 of these would be an effect within the month So now that we've all seen this draft do you think more states will urgently enact some sort of trigger law now that we've seen it Well we have to take into account that some states already have adjourned their legislative sessions and may not be coming back in for special session But we might be seeing at least a couple There's one moving in Ohio Right now it's already had a hearing so we're waiting to see what might happen there in particular What about states Elizabeth where abortion is not addressed at all in the state constitution What might they do Well it depends really on the political tenor of the state You know right now we have these great already a quarter of the state's 13 of them have these trigger bans And then you have another set of states that have pre ro bands or bands that were in effect before Rowan never repealed Those states could move to enforce those and then you have some states like Georgia where they passed a 6 week abortion ban that ban is not in effect because of the courts to the attorney general in that state once we hear from the Supreme Court may ask the judges to dismiss that case to allow that 6 week ban to go into effect So there's a series of things that can happen but I want to stress that this would happen fairly quickly We're not talking months and years We're really talking around days and weeks And there are some states that say their constitution doesn't protect abortion rights So they're going to go with maybe liberty clauses privacy clauses equal protection clauses Well yeah so in states that are where the constitution hasn't been interpreted to protect abortion rights and they do not and they don't have a constitutional amendment that says there are no protections for abortion rights Yes there are places that where we could be looking at liberty protections or equal protections or privacy protections to fight back against abortion bans Louisiana Tennessee are two of those states like that Elizabeth is if roe is overturned what kind of court challenges can we anticipate Well we are going to be our litigators in the movement are looking at what kinds of constitutional protections there could be based on those various types of clauses because as you know abortion is necessary and it's part of healthcare and we need to defend it to the fullest extent What opportunities do abortion rights advocates have for seeking constitutional protections on a state by state basis I know California mentioned Gavin Newsom governor of California mentioned maybe putting it in the state constitution a couple of days ago Right So right now from Vermont we have the very first ballot measure That if approved by the voters will put into the constitution an amendment that says this constitution protects abortion rights And we have an effort in Michigan where they are in the signature collection phase So it's a citizen's petition And they are looking to protect abortion rights in the you know at the November ballot as well And now we've got California And one more thing really quick What about states that have abortion ban still on the books from before roe V wade What happens with those zombie laws Those potentially could be enforced but some of them in places like Wisconsin and Michigan have attorneys general and governors who support abortion rights So they are not interested in enforcing them But places like Arizona and West Virginia we may see those attorneys general and governor trying to enforce them Okay Elizabeth Nash with the gut mocker institute titles with thanks Thank you.

"This is morning edition from NPR news I'm a Martinez in Culver City California And I'm Steve inskeep in Washington D.C. What is it like to live in Ukraine's capital while it's under attack Ukrainian forces remain in control of Kyiv though Russian forces seem to be building up their strength outside The reporters covering the city include asami terajima of the new site the Kyiv independent welcome to the program Thanks for having me I'm just going to call attention to your publication here I've been reading the key of independent kind of obsessively and I appreciate it very much so thanks for what you do Now what is the new routine of daily life So our daily life is basically we are watching the news 24/7 because we need to be aware of what's happening and we need to take all measures to ensure that we are safe and that in the safety of our families and friends as well right But at the same time Ukraine has been under Russia has already created 2014 So people have been stressed for all these years more than 13,000 Koreans have died in the bus vision So it's difficult time for everyone but people are doing their best to stay calm and doing their best to for example like they are packed They're ready to go If something does happen but for those who are staying in apartments especially people are just trying to encourage each other and to try to stay united with one another I'm glad you mentioned people who are packed or ready to go if something happened I mean something is happening We've heard of thousands of people who fled who chooses to stay and why So there are people who I mean not everyone can afford to leave right Because going to another city or even a foreign country that's not affordable for all decrease The average Ukraine is approximately $600 a month So that's difficult like living abroad or living under the city They have their own homes and many who are staying here would rather stay here in their own home and many would also like to protect their homeland to protect their city that they love and they live for many years Is their food and supplies So I went to a nearby supermarket yesterday and grocery store as well so the supermarket there's a long line so I didn't get the chance to go in but this smaller glossary store so there were no bread No grains but there were also no vegetables or fruits So I think the fresh products did the stock fresh products and grains are the food that lasts long It's limited but there's other plenty of other food available So you may not get the meal you want or you may not be able to stock up the pantry but you're able to get something Is that what you're telling me Yes and no one is panic buying everyone is only buying or whatever they need for the next couple of days When if at all do you go to a shelter we've certainly talked with and seen images of many people spending the nights in the subway stations So there are people who would rather stay in service station because it's deeper than you create historically has very deep retro stations Ukraine also has the world's deepest maturation in the center in Kyiv So yeah there are people who feel safer in legislation but it's also not it's not comfortable to stay there for a long time I spent it two hours myself and I had to sleep on the floor for a couple of a little bit And work on the floor So it's not comfortable so many people did go back after spending several nights there But we're already if something that if there is for example a setting nearby then we should all head to a nearby or somewhere that's very safety insured I want to note people have followed the past several days now as Kyiv has fended off Russian attackers but the Russian military seems to be bringing in more force How do you see the next few days or weeks and what is your long-term plan if you have one So I think it would be a very difficult job coming days or even weeks could be very difficult for the Ukraine military and for Ukrainian people The Ukraine made you however has been so heroical for the past few over the past few days you're fighting against a much stronger enemy But we need more manpower we need more arms So we will see what happens and we're doing our best to stay calm and just analyze the situation rationally And yeah I practice stay here for a foreseeable future in Kyiv But that is not 100% but most likely I will be staying here What would you most want in terms of help from the world I would welcome cross so the rest has been really supportive of and they've been post They've been imposing more and more sanctions against Russia which have been good because now we're making Russian economies software even more But we need to make sure that they suffer even more They suffer we need to make sure that the work costs Russia so much that they want they would record a force that they would pull their troops back and we need to make sure that Russia gets isolated from the world as much as possible And that includes taking away Russia's membership in the Security Council of the U.S.

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Debbie Elliott in orange beach Alabama And I made Martinez and Culver City California For months a district attorney in Georgia has been investigating whether former president Donald Trump and his allies committed crimes when they tried to overturn the 2020 election there Now she asked a judge to call a special grand jury Sam greenglass with member station W a B E in Atlanta has been following this And let's start off with some background What exactly is this district attorney investigating So fanny Willis is the DA here in Fulton county where Atlanta is And her investigation stems in large part from that infamous January 2021 call that Trump made to Georgia's Secretary of State Brad raffensperger Trump asked him to help overturn the results of the presidential election in Georgia which Trump lost but he asked raffensperger to quote find 11,780 votes Raffensperger refused but Willis has said her office has reason to think that the election was subject to what she called criminal disruptions Here's what Willis told W ABE in September We will put the facts that are learned literally because I'm old school up on a wall with those facts are We will see if the elements of a crime are met if they are I will present a case to the grand jury Okay so what is a special grand jury and why does the DA want one A huge reason Willis wants a special grand jury is subpoena power She says her office has been basically having trouble getting witnesses and potential witnesses to talk without that subpoena And she said Secretary of State raffensperger is one of the people who has not agreed to talk on Fox News last night raffensperger called the investigation politically motivated This is Paige paid He's a trial attorney here in Georgia And I think he explains really well what Willis is looking for Not only does she need to show that former president Trump made this call and made those statements she needs to get in some evidence of what was as intent So I think especially if she really wants to move forward with a prosecution she wants more than just his voice on a phone call The other thing is that regular grand juries sit for about two months and they hear a whole bunch of different cases a special grand jury would be devoted just to this one investigation and it could go on for as long as they need So could this special grand jury actually charge Trump or his allies with something anything No A special grand jury actually can indict anyone But Gwen thumbing She's a former district attorney in Georgia says they're still really important What it can do is issue a final report that would effectively be a road map as to all of the evidence it reviewed And be able to make recommendations as to which charges if any would be appropriate based on that evidence And then after that prosecutors have to decide whether to take the case to a regular grand jury and seek charges for say things like conspiracy to commit election fraud Has Donald Trump said anything Yes Trump put out a statement yesterday saying his call with raffensperger was perfect And the special grand jury should instead investigate voter fraud Again no proof of widespread voter fraud But as you can tell the ghost of 2020 is everywhere in Georgia at the state legislature on the campaign trail Our state's Republican governor and Secretary of State raffensperger are both facing Trump backed primary challenges because Trump says they didn't do enough to help him overturn the election in Georgia That's W ABE politics reporter Sam green glass thanks a lot Thank you The federal government is trying to make at home rapid COVID-19 tests.

"It's morning edition from NPR news I mean Martinez and Culver City California And I'm Stevens keep in Washington D.C. Good morning The rabbi who led his congregants out of a hostage situation last weekend says training made the difference Charlie citron walker spoke with CBS He really teach you in those moments that when your life is threatened you need to do whatever you can To get to safety you need to do whatever you can to get out Many synagogues have to give serious thought to security in this country and that includes temple shalom in nearby Dallas rabbi Andrew Mark Paley is the leader there and he's on the line Rabbi welcome to the program Thank you Good morning Strange to say but when news spread of this hostage taking last weekend were you surprised There's a moment when you're surprised and then you're not surprised It's a scene we've seen time and time again It just terrifying And is this something that your synagogues had to prepare for over the years We tried to keep our community as safe as possible and we prepare for the eventualities as the best we can Is this something that gets openly discussed among congregants that isn't an occasional subject of discussion Is it a constant subject of discussion that you feel that you're part of a community that may be under threat Well for the past number of years with the rise of anti semitism the incidents that have increased over the over the course of the country is on people's minds And it's an awareness that we keep as we go about doing the business of our community What kind of security do you have at your synagogue Well we have multiple layers of security we have a lay group a task force if you will we have coordination and collaboration with the local authorities We have regular security on the premises So it's a multi faceted approach I was thinking about this because of an article in the Atlantic this week by a security expert who sometimes on this program who talks of giving advice to a synagogue and the experts advice was harden your perimeter you've got to be tougher You've got to be harder to crack And the synagogue thought about this and they said no thanks We are a synagogue We need to be welcoming We need to let in lots of people Do you face a dilemma like that Absolutely It's a very delicate balancing act We want to be welcoming We want to encourage people to come in We want to be sanctuary And at the same time cognizant of the fact that there are real threats to real communities And so balancing how that's done under what circumstances is tricky And it's not always successful sometimes we err on the side of being overly cautious but being overly cautious saves lives What did you think about as you considered and learned the details of the rabbis decision in the awesome situation to let in the man who seemed to be someone who needed shelter who needed help and turned out to be a gunman Well that is a perfect example of rabbi Citroen walker He is a kind and generous person Of course he would do that That makes that makes perfect sense And the fact that he would try to create a community of welcome is exactly who he is and what's he about what he's about And at the same time endemic of the situation and the complexities of trying to keep a community safe when you really don't know I'm also thinking about the level of anti semitism that is revealed here Now we're dealing with a disturbed individual who is dead And so we may learn more or may not learn more about what was in this person's head and in any event it was one person And yet his logic seemed to be if I just grabbed some Jews they're going to fix my issue I mean it's truly a horrifying thought to cross someone's mind Do you think that is a widespread viewpoint that you have to deal with I think experience just demonstrates that that is the case that the location of his synagogue is not in a random place You'd have to go there for a specific purpose at a specific time for this specific incident So the fact that there was a sense of target here is troubling and disturbing And again just another feature of the awareness and the sort of system of issues that have to be considered when keeping your community safe What kind of support if any do you want from your fellow Americans I think in this time there's a really powerful optic that was demonstrated within moments of this terrible incident unfolding And that is communities all across the country particularly in the Dallas metroplex area communities of faith who took the time to stand up and be present even in as much as they couldn't actually do anything And knowing that there were people all across the country indeed all across the world provided a sense of comfort and support saying that you're not alone And that image and that presence really really matters And I know that there are so many people thinking and praying and offering support Those efforts are so meaningful and really so powerful to know that you're not alone really matters Rabbi Andrew Mark Paley Dallas Texas thank you so much sir Thank you so much.

"This is morning edition from NPR news I mean Martinez and Culver City California And I'm Melissa block in Washington D.C. In response to the rapid spread of the omicron variant President Biden is promising to send in federal reinforcements to support overwhelmed hospitals Our doctors nurses hospital staffs have gone above and beyond during this pandemic The strain is stress is real I really mean it It's real And we'll have their backs though We have to let them know we have their backs The president says military doctors and nurses will be deployed Even before Biden spoke yesterday officials in Rhode Island had asked the federal government for help that's because hospital staffing shortages are already at crisis levels there Dr. Laura forman is chief of emergency medicine It can't hospital in Warwick Rhode Island and she's with us this morning Doctor foreman you spoke with morning edition almost exactly this time of year ago You were running a field hospital outside Providence then what is the situation now for you in the hospital Good morning Melissa the situation right now in the hospital is worse than I've seen it in the last two years The onslaught of patients with COVID right now is unlike anything I've seen It's relentless At this point I'm surprised if a patient tests negative for it Even patients who are coming in after car accidents are with ankle sprains or testing positive the community spread here is nothing short of wildfire at this point and it's overwhelming the hospital We are routinely running out of beds We're running out of IV pumps we're running out of pillows in 20 years and emergency medicine I've never seen anything like this And the folks who were testing positive what overall what is the vaccination status of them About 70% of the people who are really ill with COVID are not vaccinated about 30% are vaccinated I will say I have seen more people die of COVID than I can count They have all been unvaccinated I've yet to have someone who's vaccinated die of COVID You mentioned all the things that you're running out of Are you also running out of staff We are really stretched then in terms of staffing I'm honored to work with some truly incredible dedicated staff but it has been so hard just to keep to keep staffing in at this pandemic has really taken a toll on folks It's taken this whole physically but it's also taken an incredible emotional toll on people And it's been hard to keep us staffed Yeah what are they telling you Your colleagues what are they how are they expressing that There's a lot of PTSD There's just there's a lot of strain There are literally days many days when we are trying to find a place to move a patient who has died so that we can make room for a sick patient coming in And to do that day in and day out is excruciatingly painful And to know that this could all be preventative people were willing to get a couple of shots in the arm is demoralizing You know last time I checked Rhode Island had one of the highest vaccination rates fully vaccinated rates in the country Something like 75% fully vaccinated And yet and yet you're still seeing this How do you account for that It's predominantly unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people that we're seeing But people who are vaccinated can still get this and they can still spread it They're much less likely to get really sick with it but I think it's really the unvaccinated folks who are filling up her hospitals I know when you spoke with the program last year you talked about a lot of cases where you would have to be FaceTiming family members as their loved one was dying Is that still the case or people allowed to be with their family members if they're in the hospital We are allowing people to come in at the end of life but there's still a lot of people who are alone in the hospital before they die because we just can't safely let visitors and all of the time Does the comments from President Biden and the promises of help yesterday do those reassure you in any way We are heartened by it I'm glad that the federal government is doing everything they can but the reality is that the responsibility for this rest was every single one of us If everybody would get vaccinated if everybody vaccinated and unvaccinated will wear a mask we wouldn't need to be in this I think the important message is that we don't need to wait for a mandate to put a mask on and do the right thing and keep one another safe Yeah and when you tell that to the patients you're dealing with has that gotten through to them It hasn't and it's so discouraging I don't know how to motivate people to protect one another You know we are all risking our lives every day to take care of people who are unwilling to get a couple of shots to protect all of us That is Dr. Laura foreman She is chief of emergency medicine at Kent hospital in Warwick Rhode Island Doctor foreman thanks for all you're doing and thanks for taking time to talk with us Thank you so much The former chair of Harvard's chemistry department has been convicted of lying to the university and the IRS about its ties with China Academics across the country have been following the case closely from member station WGBH in Boston Kirk karpe.

People are going less or or people are hungry in that leaving the home what's happening. Well you pretty much nailed. Near description of the restaurant. Landscape is changing their seven hundred thousand thousand brick and mortar restaurants here in the u._s. And every restaurant is now faced with this challenge. It's an opportunity but it's a challenge to adapt their business for or delivery and what that means is drivers showing up to pick up food. That's placed on ordering apps like ubereats and post meets endured ash and consumer behavior is shifting and people are eating from restaurants more often but it's not always in person it's through these apps and the replacing cooking at home home with opening up grub pressing one button and having food come to the door come to their office just a more convenient way way to connect with your favorite restaurant and it's it's a challenge that canter's deli. My family's restaurant has been faced away and really in two thousand nine when the recession hit us. Our foot traffic was down ten percent. We were forced to figure out new ways to reach customers. I experimented and signed up with all these different online ordering platforms starting with grub hub in the twenty four and fourteen online ordering platforms later thirty percent of our business. Today is now on these delivery companies as a restaurant. That's open twenty four hours. A day canter's i elliott it's been been around since nineteen thirty one started by my great grandfather. Ben kanner and it's been in my family for four generations. My grandfather worked there sixty five five years. My dad pretty much dropped out of high school to take over the family business and he hasn't looked back since and his sister does the hiring and firing his cousin does the accounting really a family business and i grew up working. They're very young age as well. My job was to adapt the business just like everyone else in my family family and along the way we discovered that there's a lot of technology that we needed to bring into the business including our first point of sale sale system having a mobile friendly website just minor updates to bring it into the next generation and delivery was a big component of that but it was very very challenging as a restaurant actually operate fulfill those orders. We're messing up. Orders left and right drivers were showing up to pick up food that that hadn't even been made yet and ultimately we realized we needed a better way to plug into these revenue streams and get the order information information flowing directly into the kitchen rather than to the tablets that were in the front of the house. We had a wall of technology nine tablets laptops laptops and a fax machine just to manage all these incoming orders so you have a company called order bark. We're hearing culver city at your offices order. Mark is the piece of hardware that goes into the restaurants. Tell everybody yes so. I started order mark in january of twenty seventeen with my co founders to solve the exact problem and what we do is we built consolidation device. It's a one tablet and one printer that can go into a kitchen that takes orders from different online ordering platform standardizes the incoming data and feeds it into a single flow directly into the kitchen so today we work with thousands of restaurants nationwide from mom and pops up to very large chains like sonic subway and what we're doing is we're giving them. We're shipping them a single device that they can receive all of these different orders from anwr actually beyond consolidating the orders were plugging them in to all of the online ordering companies that are relevant and the zip code from a restaurant owner listening right now and i say that sounds great how much so this so we charge just a fixed fixed monthly fee on how many locations you have and where you're located. It's about one hundred bucks a month. Per location is where it starts and it it really allows you to receive additional orders because you're being plug into more revenue streams and most of our restaurants actually make out that one hundred bucks a month on the first day of each month alex kanter order marc canter family.

And then people I think stop playing, but one of your games they kept on playing anyway. And of course, Alec Baldwin also got kicked off airplane for playing words with friends. So everybody knows the Singha games that what happened in what turned things around say farmville.

Khloe and jumping into this game experience it felt like a real escape from what I was dealing with in my day to day life which was enjoyable, but sometimes I need to little bit of a break, and I loved the experience and then being able to share my farm with my friends and family. It was something that was really really proud of. We did have a little bit of a challenge as a company with regards to the platform in Facebook changing around some of the algorithms in which we can message to the community playing the game. And I think zinc had gone through a tremendous amount of learning during that time period of how it's better message to players in the marketplace with meaningful updates in their gaming experiences. Zinger as a company thinking, my no had kind of shot out of the gate IPO with a pretty massive valuation. And then I've gone through some tough times it was as it was transitioning into mobile for messaging became a challenge as the company went through various trials and tribulations people kept on playing with friends kept on playing were to friends and people kept on playing farmville as well. So farmville still continues to do pretty well for us on the Facebook platform, but we're also working on new farmville experiences that are coming out. Okay. So what can you tell people? So farmville is available now. Now, it's still available on Facebook threat arm Ville, one farmville two, then we also have farmville tropic escape and farm vote country escape on mobile.

And then and then on the third part? We've also focused on Manet. So we're able to emerge. There's an acquisition. That's right. That's right. Bringing companies and games that we'd love and we see out in the marketplace into Zinger and bringing them into our family. Thank you for having us Zingo the next game.

Joe Biden says he never "acted inappropriately" with Lucy Flores

"We're going to start our program today with a conversation about an alleged encounter between former vice president Joe Biden and former Nevada democratic assemblywoman Lucy Flores in an article for New York magazine Flores details and alleged encounter in two thousand fourteen with then vice president Biden, she calls the encounter awkward and says he grabbed her shoulders from behind sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head before a campaign event. At the time says she felt embarrassed and powerless former vice president Biden responded with a statement that said quote in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life. I have offered countless handshakes hugs expressions of affection support and comfort and not once never did. I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested that I did. So I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention Lucy. Flora's is here to speak with us about this alleged encounter from our studios in Culver City, California. We should also say we have invited the former vice president to respond to the allegations in an interview, and we have not yet received a response Lucy. Flores thank you for being with us. Thank you. My pleasure. Miss flora, can you describe the encounter in your own words? Share will. I mean, it's just as I described it happened. Very suddenly I was on expecting it. It was a campaign rally setting. So there was a lot of chaos a lot of people a lot of energy. We were all kind of in public vice president Biden, and I were never alone together. So as we were waiting to be called up to the stage. The rally had already started people were already speaking. We were waiting in line. Even Gloria was in front of me, Joe Biden was behind me. And you know, I just all of a sudden feel his hands. And I feel him get up really close to me. And i'm. Just you know, at that point processing, and I'm thinking, okay. This is really weird. But then he leans in. And then he like inhales, and and then he proceeds to plant this long kiss on the top of my head and the entire time. And just kinda like what is happening as we mentioned, former vice president Biden has released a statement and says if he did behave this way, he doesn't believe he acted inappropriately. What is your response to his statement? I need the vice president and all men and all people who are in positions of power to understand that in that setting in that situation that kind of behavior is absolutely inappropriate. A big part of the reason why I'm also speaking out now is because he has a history of this. This is not in unknown issue. There have been stories. There are pictures. There are videos, I think that there is a very severe disconnect and lack of empathy for what the women on the receiving end are feeling I understand that he's trying to clear his his intention, but it's not about your intention. Whether it was an innocent gesture whether it was a sexual gesture none of that matters. It is about the person on the receiving end of that inappropriate behavior by someone who is very very clearly. More powerful than you that power dynamic is important to recognize the organizer of the event, you describe is Henry Munoz the co founder of the Latino victory project and he released a statement Saturday night, and he says quote at no time were these two leaders alone together. And I and the organization I co-founded and those in attendance, do not believe that circumstances. Support allegations that such an event took place. What is your response to Mr. Munoz, Mr. boondocks saints took oh and read my ass because clearly he didn't read it or if he read it he didn't comprehend it he specifically inquired about whether or not we were ever alone. And I never ever stated that we were alone. In fact, I've been very clear that this was always out in public. You said in your article that you're not suggesting that Joe Biden broke any laws. Why did you wish to come forward? Over the years. I have seen that this type of inappropriate behavior by Joe bye. Heiden? But also by others has not been taken seriously. And in many ways, if the media did talk about it. They kind of talked about it jokingly and kind of giving him a pass like this is just Biden being Biden boys will be boys while I'm saying, no, so former vice president Joe Biden is mulling a presidential run. Do you think he should run for president? I don't believe he should run for president that being said, I'm not supporting any other candidate. I'm not saying these things because I'm trying to lift up anybody else. We have many many qualified candidates including women, and I want to continue hearing from all of them. And as far as it relates to president Biden. No, I don't believe that he should run. There's a reaction to Joe Biden generally that his behavior is possibly a generational misunderstanding. That went vitamin considers quote expressions of affection others, consider completely inappropriate. And and what is your view about this there? Very well could be that aspect in the same way that you have folks who are serving who up until recently, you had people who were against the Civil Rights Act and were pro segregationists. And those people were still serving in our government. I think that culture is changing and it's changing for the better. And that's what we

From HQ2 to Trump, Amazon to face a lot of challenges in 2019 (The 3:59, Ep. 504)

"To three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX urban Joni Sussman twenty nine team. It's shaping up to be a challenging one for Amazon with critic seemingly coming out of the woodwork in New York City against its h q to project their plus the company faces potential troubles from President Trump. And it's controversial facial recognition software. So Joan what I wanted to ask you about this is do you think that Amazon's really strong reputation with his customers will continue to help insulating. It from some of these issues seems like people consumers have sort of bifurcated their understanding of Amazon like I feel like even like we were chatting before this. I'm New Yorker year. You're earning Johnny live in this area. We're talking about reasons that it's. The reasons that some people are annoyed with the issue decision to move here. But even though I am one of the people it's kind of annoyed by still use Amazon constantly, so as like a consumer as a service, I think that people will continue to judge Amazon the service different than Amazon as a company. Yeah. I totally agree. I was at a council hearing that ran for like three hours yesterday where a bunch of council members where beating up Amazon about the age to process how they're being cut out of it. And that this is going to be a state process that in like the fact that Amazon was going to get three billion dollars in incentives for building. What are the council members? I thought really crystallized a lot of what we're talking about. Really? Well, and he specifically said we we love you. And we hate you. And it wasn't or whatever it was like, we're we kinda feel the same two things about Amazon at the exact time. So I was kind of in the story that I wrote today though, I was kinda. Curious to see people really like a lot of Google services. People use a lot of Google services. People really like Facebook to there's a reason why social media company out there. So I was curious to see if with all this tech backlash that was going on directed at both of those companies whether Amazon would start to face some of those similar issues there there are like a lot of those issues that have been simmering with the company, but at the same time, I really don't think that they've been hit the same way as Facebook and Google, I if you agree with that. Yeah. But I think that's because most of the tech backlash or we're talking about it's mostly been centered on Facebook, really like is Facebook has been the locus of all that animosity. And I think Google and YouTube are pulled into that vortex because they have services that are very similar like they have these user generated. Eh social based things where this abuse all kind of able to. It's like a little crackling fire all able to the fuel each other Amazon isn't really operating in those spaces. And so it's been insulated in a way. Yes. But I think that that doesn't mean that it the next tech backlash twenty nineteen might be like rate in the sweet spot for Amazon. Might be related to facial recognition software or might be related to President Trump bringing up more issue's about postal service. There's a lot. Either way next up apple is building its own hue to project in Austin, Texas. The company today unveiled plans for a one billion dollar campus there along with new offices in Seattle Cindy ago, Culver City, California as well as expanding operations in Pittsburgh, New York and Boulder, Colorado. So my question for you is should we go work for Amazon or apple my gosh, come on? Wow. That's why would we do that? But yeah, I mean, even though it's fun to kind of compare it to an H Q two idea. But it's really not. I mean, this is kind of different expansion of their workforce than the whole like dog and pony show around HQ to addition to this. You know, it's a lot the number of people that are going to be bringing jobs. They're going to be bringing to Austin is a lot smaller than either of the. Yeah. It's not nearly as big as sprinkling it around different other places that touch on initiatives that apple is increasing so related to that. Do you think apple is likely to face like similar criticisms aim is on with HQ to now? So I know and partly because of everything you said treating completely differently either way if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on CNN, Ben FOX or event Joni salesman. Thanks for listening.
