"Give by calling 6 7 8 5 5 three 90 90 My name is juana summers and I'm a co host of NPR's all things considered. I think our audiences crave clarity. I think they're looking for context in an incredibly crowded news ecosystem. What I love about all things considered is the range of different stories, whether it's the news that they need to inform their decisions for their family or the cultural stories that are of things that people are talking about in their group texts, we get to do it all. I am really proud to support several NPR stations and I really value the work that our member stations do to help people understand their own community. And I feel that for myself and my community, I think it's important for our coverage to always be culturally relevant and to reflect the diversity of the communities that we live in and work in. I hope that I can be a part of expanding who sees us as their natural news and culture home. I'm wanna summers, support this NPR station today. And you can support it with a donation right now at WAB dot org slash donate. And yeah, as one of summer says range is really great. That's not just a variety of stories on all things considered every afternoon. It is that, right? But it's every time you listen to 90.1, also, you might not have thought about it this way before, but your gift, it really does matter. It makes everything that we do possible. It pays for that range. The information, the smiles, the civility, your connection.

"Decatur. That's for sure. Commanded the Mediterranean squadron from 1815 to 1820 in the Brooklyn navy yard from 1824 to 1833. He was president of the board of navy commissioners from 1837 until his death in 1840 at the age of 67. So yeah, he saw a little bit more action, but he seemed like more of a desk guy, you know, a home. He didn't really make a lot of waves. No pun intended. When he was when he was commanding the Lake Ontario squadron, he was definitely no Oliver hazard Perry or Stephen Decatur. But solid job, you know, good solid career, nothing fantastic, but not bad either. He at least he didn't get in a duel, right? Yeah. I think a lot of the people who came out of this war, they were either hard chargers like Decatur, and they made their mark and kind of a more flashy way, but a lot of people came out of this war like Chauncey and Isaac hall, who even other ones who really, I mean, Henry Clay, they really molded what this country would become. They didn't, it's not exactly what they set up, but they really built the foundations that people in the Civil War and the reconstruction period built on to what we have today. Yeah, I mean, we need those people just as much as we need the swashbucklers, right? I mean, we've got to have bureaucrats. We've got to have people who set up procedures and policies and build up institutions. So I think their role was not as exciting to read about, but just as much important as your Decatur's and your Andrew Jackson's and your parries and people like that. All right, last one, listeners are saying, finally. Hopefully not. I'm just kidding. I hope I'm kidding. But one more naval guy, the hero of the Lake champlain, the battle of Lake champlain, and that is another unsung hero somebody you don't hear much about today.

"Organize these events and so many people would just drop in to listen to the music. For the first part of the pandemic, we would all go outside in the evening around 6 o'clock and instead of clapping, we would take turns performing songs. So that's what we were doing at the beginning of the pandemic. See all the black moons in each well, first of all, this is a really great neighborhood felt in oakhurst. And so it was a really supportive community here and it's not surprising that something like portraits takes place here because even before a professor there's a real sense of community. So it's kind of like performing for a bunch of our friends, really. I don't know shame I belong pain I hear you so I will tell the story about how we formed so one of our friends actually gave us a four track tape recorder, audio cassette like whale school, a long time ago. When the kids were just like two and 5. Very young. And you know, one of those days trying to figure out, okay, what to do with what the kids. I just decide to pull it out. And it just kind of grew from there. We started layering tracks and every year, the recordings became more and more ambitious until we got to a point where we decided, okay, let's start playing live. We're from Canada. And our time spent in the United States has been surprising shocking in a lot of ways. Oftentimes, American cities, it's really hard to find that sense of community, so many American cities are kind of built around cars and highways, Decatur has such a different feel, and that's why we ended up here. And we kind of just really lucked out with this street. Like we moved in, people like brought us baked goods like the day we moved in and it's just like, I feel like before the pandemic, at least once a month, it's just like, people just wander onto the street and just hang out. Yeah, just all these 20s all the time. That's really effective. The pandemic and not having those times together. I think the neighbors have actually we've really missed each other. So this is a good chance to get together. There's nobody else. Coming out of the want to thank those of you especially who come

Horace Fletcher: 'The Great Masticator'
"Born in lawrence massachusetts in eighteen forty nine. Horace didn't play an instrument or hustle. Amateurs at chess no. He didn't cobbled together. Shoes in italy. Horace fletcher like the chew. As a young man fletcher traveled around performing odd jobs following his interests he worked as a writer and artist and even managed in new orleans opera house for a time. He loved to read and he indulged in many of life's pleasures mainly food. It was this pleasure. However that inflicted some of the worst pain he'd ever experienced in his life for one. As he got older he struggled with obesity and it side effects such as chronic stomach pains he also found himself being refused coverage from a life insurance policy or rejection. That sounded alarm bells for him. He quickly realized it was time to make a change one day while traveling to chicago on business the middle aged fletcher began chewing his food. He'd always shoot his food before but this time was different. He kept chewing and chewing and chewing until all that was left was a liquidity goo on his tongue.

In case you missed it yesterday, somewhere around 11:30 A.m.. The governor took the microphone that up with the Dow center and We? We saw some elements of of leaving the dictatorship and returning to a bit of democracy at the June one in July one, respectively, being dates that everyone can unmask and the capacity limits will go away. So we want to hear from you texting us at 808 590957. What do you most excited about in terms of going back to normal life, So to speak, and certainly the text about any of the topics of today would be fantastic. We'll bring in Nick. Maybe Maria. We'll have some fun with that. But on a more serious note, there is reasons to be afraid. May just like an ache that you ignore for years and years and only uncover later, a slow growing cancer that now maybe has advanced to a very dangerous stage. We are once again, starting to feel the subtle ache. Of extraordinary inflation seeping into our lives. It's really been quite a while since the last battle, it was 1996 the last time we saw consumer price inflation go up this much. 4.2% just in the last 12 months. No, I mean we're not in 19 seventies territorial, with log lines at gas stations and energy shortages. A lot of the same telltale signs of that nagging Jake should not be ignored. Hell conceived pandemic shutdowns in so many manufacturing industries have created supply, train droughts and the demand for some things has increased simultaneously. Prices are up. Wages are not Even well intentioned policies like Trump's massive terrorist on Canadian softwood that was implemented to bolster the reliance in the probability of our own timber supply here in the U. S. That's only exacerbated the problem. Combined with sawmills that were that were employees less and then running at half staff, lumber shortages, creating big price increases for home builders and do it yourselfers. Looks standard inflation historically is 2%. And at 2%. It takes nearly 37 years for prices to actually double. Briggs for peanut butter for gasoline for a new sofa for the things you might by taking a vacation. At the 4.2% we saw last year would only take 17 years. If it climbs into that dreaded 6% annual range in just 12 years. We literally be shelling out twice as much for fuel twice as much for groceries, clothes technology services. How many folks out there are confident that their income will double in 12 years. Many of you listening or retired. Is your Social Security gonna double It might be insolvent by then. The sad part about this whole thing is that inflation is a choice. Biden should be well aware of this. He started his political career in the same 19 seventies that literally halted expansion for the middle class workers despite productivity being at all time highs. Spending trillions with a slash of a pen. The way that past presidents spent billions. Don't forget now. Okay Trillion is 1000 times multiplier of a billion This is monopoly money. Fool's gold. It's worse than ever because it's not even real. It's just printed. Either. He just authorized trillions in new spending on top of the five trillion discretionary Left $89 Trillion a year when we only have 3.5 trillion in federal tax revenue, the United States was a person asking the bank for a loan with that kind of balance sheet. They couldn't borrow enough money to buy a pickle slice for a burger. That's insane. Taxes have to go up. And this folks, This could be the most bitter lesson of her lifetime. But for now, we're being told to ignore the ache. Keep spending here some stimulus money to go blowing Amazon trinkets and a vacation you'll forget about six months later, 20 years from now, when that calls for universal basic income, trying to vilify conservatives for creating an even bigger gap in income between the middle class and the poor. You can remember this time. It wasn't a lack of employment. The dead list. It wasn't certainly wasn't a lack of motivation. That was the culprit for the lack of retirement savings and inability to save its the inflationary reaction of horrible policies, fantastical ideals that forced these folks to use every single penny just on necessities. Milk bread eggs. Broke. It was the fact that a fantasy of utopian desires like climate saving energy bills and free preschool programs and student loan forgiveness and everything else that buys votes..
Why Theres A Cross on San Franciscos Highest Peak

You're surrounded by eucalyptus trees and you start to forget that you're in the middle of a major city coming up trail breath mason amazing view when you get to the top. You see two things of you that stretches all the way to the east bay and one very big cross. The cross is an imposing sight. It stands at one hundred three feet tall and ten feet wide at the base made of concrete it stands in stark contrast to blue sky and the eucalyptus grove that surrounds it to learn more about how it got here. I went to mount davidson historian. I- jackie proctor. Jackie says the crosses origin story goes back almost a hundred years to nineteen twenty-three two time when the area was a forest a guy named james decatur who is a employee of the western union telegraph company and with the ymca hikes through that forest and comes to the top and he sees this incredible view of downtown and he is just overwhelmed. Inspire knee writes this long essay about the experience.

What Earth Looked Like 3.2 Billion Years Ago
"We get into it quick very general refresher on plate tectonics the outer layer of our planet. The stuff we're sitting on is made up of a system of hard plates rigid blocks of rock that move relative to each other and they glide around on top of a layer of softer rock that makes up part of the earth's mantle these rafic plates drift around colliding causing each other to crumple or slide over top of one another. It's why we have most of our mountains and earthquakes in roger wants to know in earth's long history when those plates started moving answering that question was a bit of an adventure. Okay so roger to figure out when these plates started shaking and bacon moving around you had to go on a hunt for some very specific rocks. Where did that take you. Yes so we follow the old rocks. We go to the parts of the world Where rocks from three billion years ago are actually preserved And this is hard because actually of plate tectonics so play tectonics life recycles the surface of the earth over and over again only about five percent of the earth's surface represents the first half of our history. Oh that's really interesting in other words if you're a piece of continent three and a half billion years ago there's very little chance. He survived to the present day so specifically we went to an area. north australia. Called the pilbara so this is an area where there isn't a ton of turnover due to plate tectonics so you can find some really old rocks there. That's right yes. Just by the luck of the draw these rocks have been knocked around on the surface of the earth. It probably wandered all the way from the poll to the equator many times but Over the course of these three billion years it was never pushed down into the interior of the earth in which case it would have been heated melted. What is it look like roger. Yeah it's a really beautiful place and most of the terrains. Condie's green rolling hills with these kind of spiky kind of drought resistant. Grasses is better look then. Walk through sense yeah. It's prettier than it. Feels as what you're telling me exactly the same field season. We took these samples. I I made the grave mistake. Taking light-duty hiking shoes that also had some holes in it ended up duct taping my feet every day just armor at a little bit more against the the spiky grass so okay so you're you're hiking along you find iraq they are looking for you. Collect your samples. And then you take them back to your lab and try to determine their magnetic history. What is what is that me. Yeah that's exactly right. So we'd take the rocks from the field We keep track of how the rocks are are oriented so in other words wish science up and then we take it back to our lab and we measured that direction of of the magnetic field in the so turns out all naturally form rocks contain magnetic components. So i mean i mean. I knew that i knew that. Keep going on your then. Totally knew that. Yeah yeah so so. All natural rocks contain these Minerals so these little grains of material that actually are magnetic and they're actually behave like little compass needles. And if you take a take a rock any old rock and you measure in the instruments that we have You can detect the direction that these little magnetic grains are pointing. Wow so you you can literally take rock and say okay. We know this rock was pointing in this direction. That's exactly right. Yeah and The reason this is useful in our in our case is that the magnetic field of the earth exists at different angles in different directions depending on where you are on earth and specifically changing latitude if you go from one latitude to different latitude on on. The earth dangled a maniac field changes. So if you can measure the angle to make field in these rocks you can figure out what latitude through the form that. Wow okay okay so you you you figure that out and then let me know if i have this right then you compare them to nearby rocks that you know the magnetic history of you know which way they were pointing and that helps you understand like when they started moving By looking at our data of where this rock was relative to the equator and comparing to other studies We showed that this rock actually moved from position. Closer to the equator so in in the tropics of the earth to position that's farther from the equator so in kind of the mid-latitudes and and we can quantify how quick this drift was how quick this motion was and from that. We know that this does and was moving at the same rate at the same kinds of velocities that the modern continents move. Oh that's cool and so into you know when that happened because you know the age of the rocks as well. That's right so other people Other workers that have visited rocks before us. have looked at particular parts of these particular mineral grains in these rocks. Tie actually preserve information about how old they are So for each of these measurements of how close the rock was to decatur We can also put an age on that on that position so roger and his team by collecting and analyzing these very very old rocks and australia came up with an estimate. Their research suggests earth's tectonic plates were in motion at least three point two billion years ago. Several hundred million years earlier than we thought and another cool thing about rogers research. It weighs in on a peculiar geoscience mystery. So there's this very long standing question in earth science of how the earth seems to have had water surface for released last four billion years. Rogers says at that time. The son was probably about thirty percent fainter compared to today so the earth shoud have been completely frozen. But he says there's geological evidence liquid water was on the earth surface. Then you know one of the key ingredients that life to evolve on this planet so what could have made the planet warm enough for liquid water. You know where. I'm going with this. So one of the leading hypotheses for why. The earth managed to maintain equilibrium in temperature managed to have this thermostat. Is that plate. Tectonics causes the recycling of carbon into the earth and then also puts out carbon into the atmosphere and it does in such a way that the surface temperature is kept within the within a certain range. So are you telling me that. The movement of the plates that were living on is partially responsible for the development of our atmosphere and the temperature of our planet. Yeah that's exactly right. So this is a question that geologists have been pondering for like a really long time. How how cool it to add this piece to it to defined this out. Yeah yeah it. Felt very gratified to know that we have contributed to resolving this very old question. If feels like it feels like the effort was well worth it was worth the duct tape boots is. What you're telling me that's right. Yeah it was worth the the pokes foot every day every. Step all right roger. Will i really appreciate you. This super fun. Yeah yeah this is really
Two pharmacists fired after one allegedly took COVID-19 vaccines home, mixed doses at DMH in Illinois
"Indicator. We're a couple of pharmacists have been fired. The story comes from the Chicago Tribune and the reporting of Lisa Shankar, who joins us now, Lisa, welcome back. Thank you s Oh, tell me about what What's going on here in Decatur? Sure. So, um, we foid my colleague Jomar. Avoid a emails from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Freedom of Information Act. You filed? Yeah, thank you and looking asking for anything that they had received having to do with complaints about how vaccines have been administered and there were emails between Memorial health system, which is hospital Decatur and State Health Department because apparently to pharmacists employed by memorial health system were fired after one of them took doses home to her family members and incorrectly or inappropriately mixed doses of the vaccine. On a day when 300 of their health care workers were vaccinated, let's take the first one first. Um the the pharmacist has not been identified. Right. The emails did not include names in the health system that they couldn't tell us names. She was fired because the health system said what? She took vials home to her family. How what did she do? Sure, the health system. Apparently, What happened is she took a dose is home to her family members, According to these emails, the health system said that she took two doses and her family members were not people who would have been eligible for the vaccine. At that time. We know how many people were talking about. Um, health systems that she took two doses. Doses. Okay. And then the other situation and I didn't really understand this. Um, what defense was that? You explained it in the peace but that they were mixing doses from vials. Explain that for me. Sure, so if each let's say each vial of a fight of five your vaccine contains like six doses. After the pharmacist takes the six doses out of the vile there still might be a little bit left at the bottom of the pile. And so what This farm sis did was take that little bit that was left at the bottom of the vile and combine it with leftovers from other vials. Um, which to me? It sounds like a great idea. Yeah, right, And they're actually has the controversy about that, in some places about you know, is that a good way to get more vaccine? But the FDA said that that should not be done that That's a bad idea. Because it is. The sexy doesn't contain preservatives. So if you're mixing Vaccine from different vials. It could lead contamination issues. That's because the vaccine was taken out of one vial introduced to the Needle and the syringe and then reintroduced to another violence that what is that worthy infection? Which, Because it's more like Let's say you have a tiny bit of it left over at the bottom of a few different vials. And then you combine that little bit from the few different vials to create one new dose. Okay? And and that's the same pharmacist who was You took two doses home to her family, right? Okay, so two pharmacists were fired. What did the other one do? We don't know. We know it had to do with with this incident, but the health system, um, would not say how this other pharmacist was involved, so maybe covering it up or something like that. Yeah, We just We don't know you. I'll just

3 questions to ask yourself about everything you do
"When i was in high school at the age of seventeen i graduated from high school in. Decatur georgia as valedictorian of my high school. Proud of myself. I was from a low income community. I'd grown up in mississippi. We'd moved from mississippi to georgia so my parents could pursue their degrees as united methodist ministers. We were poor but they didn't think we were poor enough so they were going for permanent poverty. And so while they studied at emory i studied at avondale and i became valedictorian. Well one of the joys of being valedictorian in the state of georgia is that you get invited to meet the governor of georgia. I was mildly interested in meeting him. It was kind of cool. I was more intrigued by the fact that he lived in a mansion. Because i watched a lot of general hospital in dynasty as a child. And so i got up that morning. Ready to go to visit the governor. My mom and my dad are also invited. Got up and we went outside but we didn't get in our car in the south. A car is a necessary thing. We don't have a lot of public transit. There aren't a lot of options. But if you're lucky enough to live in a community where you don't have a car. The only option is public transit. And that's what we had to take and so we got on the bus and we took the bus from decatur. All the way to buckhead where. The governor's mansion sat on this really beautiful acreage of land. These long black gates that ran the length of the property. We get to the governor's mansion. We pulled a lever that lets them know. This is our stop. We get off the bus. My mom my dad. And i walk across the street and we walk up the driveway because their cars coming up cars bringing students from all across the state of georgia. And so we're walking along the side and as we walk single file along the side of my mom and dad's sandwiching to make sure i don't get hit. By one of the cars bringing the other valedictorians. We approached the guard gate and we get to the guard gate. Guard comes out and he looks at me and he looks at my parents and he says you don't belong here. This is a private event. My dad says no. This is my daughter. Stacy she's one of the valedictorians but the guard doesn't look the checklist that's in his hands. He doesn't ask my mom for the invitation. That's at the bottom of her very voluminous purse instead. He looks over our shoulder at the bus because in his mind the buses telling him a story about who should be there and the fact that we were too poor to have our own car. That was a story. He told himself and he may have seen something in my skin. Color may have seen something in my attire. I don't know what went through his mind but his conclusion was to look at me again and with the look of disdain. So i told you this is a private event. You don't belong here now. My parents were studying to become united methodist ministers but they were not pastors yet and so they proceeded to engage this gentleman a very robust discussion of his decision making skills. My father may have mentioned that he was going to spend eternity in a very fiery place. If he didn't find my name on that checklist and indeed. The man checks the checklist eventually and he found my name and he led us inside. But i don't remember meeting the governor of georgia. I don't recall meeting my fellow valedictorians from one hundred and eighty school districts. The only clear memory i have of that day was a man standing in front of the most powerful place in georgia. Looking at me. And telling me i don't belong and so i decided twenty some odd years later to be the person who got to open the gates. Unfortunately you may have read. The rest of the story didn't quite work out that way and now i'm tasked with figuring out how do i move forward because you see i didn't want just open the gates for young black women who had been underestimated and told they don't belong. I wanted to open those gates for latinas for asian americans. I wanted to open those gates for the undocumented and documented. I wanted to open those gates as an ally of lgbtq community. I wanted to open those gates for the families that have to call themselves the victims of gun violence. I wanted to open those gates wide for everyone in georgia because our state and this is our nation and we all belong here. But what i recognize. The first try wasn't enough and my question became. How do i move forward. How do i get beyond the bitterness and the sadness and the lethargy and watching an inordinate amount of television as eat ice cream. What do i do next. And i'm going to do what i've always done. I'm going to move forward because going backwards is an option and standing still is not enough.

Where did Davy Crockett die
"For coffee lovers today's mystery. Well, this industry Gabi Crockett on March six. Eighteen thirty six Mexican forces stormed the Alamo afford I like old mission in San Antonio where some two hundred rebellious Texans had been holed up for weeks, the battle was over in less than two hours leaving. Great. Texas heroes like Jim Buoy, James Butler Bonham, and William Travis dead among the defenders that day was Davy Crockett former congressman legendary hundred scowl, and teller of tall tales according to sell accounts Crockett died in. A battle that according to others. He was one of a handful of men captured and later executed what really happened while there's the battle and Aaron Lace, the myth and mystery. But exactly who was Davy Crockett he was born in Tennessee. Eight seven, hundred, eighty, six as a young man he was indentured by his father to pay off debts once they were paid in full he was finally allowed to leave home. Although he was voted into Congress, no one knows where he was educated yet he was articulate understood politics and could play the fiddle Crockett's true claim to fame prior to his death at or around. The Alamo was just a hunter in his youth tessie was still a wilderness out one time. He supplied food through skills of hunting for an entire army. While in Congress, he opposed add Jackson's argument to relocate local Indians. Congress. Crockett became a freemason. He spent time in his entire legislative career fighting for the rights of impoverished settlers who felt dangled on the precipice of losing title to their land. Due to the states complicated system of grants. He introduced a resolution to abolish the United States Military Academy at West. Point. New. York because he felt that it was public money going to benefit the sons of wealthy men. He spoke out against Congress giving a hundred thousand dollars to the widow of Stephen Decatur citing the congress was not. Empowered to do that, he opposed Andrew Jackson Eighteen thirty Indian removal act and was the only member of the Tennessee delegation to vote against it. Chief John Ross, sent him a letter on January thirteenth eighteen, thirty one expressing his thanks for Crockett's vote is what was not popular with his own district and he was defeated in the eighteen thirty one election by William, Fitzgerald and here's a quote. I told the people of my district that I would serve them as faithfully as I had done before. But if not. They might go to hell and I would go to Texas history tells us that Ab Crockett went to Texas but not alone he brought with him. Thirty one tells C.
