Clean all day long and then have a presence of people in the park at the maintenance staff and park Rangers in the park seven days a week. You know all the hours at the park is open.

"Trash drug paraphernalia and even gets caused an infestation of rodents. It's become a public health issue. Certainly, so let's get into that with Denver Parks and rec Deputy executive director Scott Gilmore on our live line. Good morning, Scott. Hey, Hello. How are you doing this morning? Good. Thank you. Give us the particulars. When is the part closing? And how long do you think it will have to stay closed? Um so we're going to be moving forward with moving forward with the closure on Wednesday next Wednesday. A complete closure of the park. I do want to stress something. I know I was listening to the broadcast. And this isn't a homeless issue. This isn't just trying to blame this on the homeless population being in the park. This is People that are, you know in the park that could be possibly homeless, but there's probably a lot of the individuals in the park that are not doing the right thing that are not homeless. And so this is not, um I just want to be clear on that. This is an issue, um, of safety and making sure that the park is safe for all people to enjoy. So, um, I didn't want to clarify that real quick. All right, Scott. So if it's if when you say people aren't doing the right thing are you saying we're not putting our trash away? If you're using drugs, pick up your needles. I don't mean to be facetious about that. But there, but it nicely. This respectively. Seems like there's a little more serious going on. Then. Sometimes what people are letting on with the issues. There's some other crime issues with it as well. So I mean, Clearly clearly there's some illegal activity happening in the park and around the city in general, Um there's drug use and other things that are happening in certain parts of the park. And we're trying to address those. The police. We work really closely with DPD are trying to definitely, um, you know, target the drug dealers that are in the park and and other areas of the city. So those are things that are happening not just in Denver but across the country. And so we are trying to address that there are other social issues going on and as everybody can see across the country were struggling as a country to address You know some of the drug addiction in the country? Um, you know, just homelessness, Other things that are going on. So, um, we are in Denver, you know, and in Parks Department and Civic Center, we have tried incredibly hard to Make sure that we are providing services to some of our most vulnerable populations. We have a program called Denver Day works in the city where we're actually employing homeless individuals trying to help them, you know, get back on their feet. Get them a job. Up them Get housing. Just help them get back. Um, you know, on track, another program that we've had in the park over the last three months, which we worked really hard on doing is a program called showers for all And this is a program that I met at the safe outdoor spaces. They were providing showers to those individuals in the safe outdoor spaces. And I said, Hey, why don't you Why don't we try to figure out a place for you guys to provide this service in one of our part? As we know almost individuals are in our pokes. Because we're lucky enough mean you're lucky enough to have a home to go to some of the individuals in the park are not that blessed right? And so we actually worked with this group called showers for all They've been in the parts. Why should week providing over 50 showers a day and laundry services to individuals that you know we're trying to give them some dignity. Make sure that they can, you know, have a nice shower and plain clothes that they want to go and apply for a job. Those are things that we've been trying to do in the parts. Um, in the parks in Civic Center Park Specifically, right? Well, we do have a camping ban in effect in Denver. Do police need to better enforce that in parks, including civic center, or is it just such a low priority for them? No, So just say, you know parks. There are no camps in parts. There's no encampments. There. We have park rules and regulations we enforce every day at 11 o'clock parks are closed. We do not allow people to stay in parks overnight, So that is not something that is Happening in parks. We actually have Rangers that worked through the night tax. You go into parks and make sure people understand. We have specific rules and regulations for parks. We do not allow structures in parks such as tents and other Structures that are popped up. We address that as a people bring those into parks, and we let people know that those are not allowed. So we do not have encampments in parts we have Specific park rules and regulations that we enforce. Um he makes sure that we are trying to keep our park say Scott. Then what is your solution? Because I see a middle ground and you're saying it's not all of this, but it's more. I think it's more complicated. Interesting. Well, people just aren't picking up the trash. And again. I know I'm being just simple about that. But what is the middle ground with it? Then? How do you fix this problem? This is a horribly complicated This isn't a black and white problem. This is a very complex problem and issue that we all need to work together to try to pride provide solutions. I don't think there's There's one magic solution out there. So what we're going to do in the park to try to I managed parks and recreation..

Why Won't Rhode Island NEA's Jennifer Azevedo Let Parents Have Oversight Over Education?

"An email to the South King Sounds any A's listed contact. Just bounce right back. State chapter deputy executive director. Jennifer as a veto. The local NBC TV station Provident, wrote Providence, Rhode Island, quote. We're asking the court to conduct a balancing test to determine whether our members privacy rights outweigh the public interest. We believe they do, and those records should either not be disclosed or should be redacted accordingly. Unquote Yo. Missus a veto. I got an even better idea. It's called school choice. Instead of continuing to allow the government school system to indoctrinate our Children and ideologies we find to be abhorrent. Why not allow American citizens to have oversight and control over the Children's education? Now the teachers unions will never agreed to that because they are trying to fundamentally transform our society. They are playing the long game. Remember when you get March new book, American Marxism read the whole thing. The last chapter tells us what we are going to have to do to restore freedom and liberty to this great country.

"Back with you on the take away. I'm tan Xena Vega and we've been talking about the state of press freedom in the United States and abroad during the covert 19 pandemic, and I'm here with Robert Mahoney, deputy executive director at the committee to protect Journalists. Robert other than covered 19 itself. What are some of the other threats to press freedom around the world this year specifically thinking about Ah, lot of the social justice uprisings that we've seen here in the United States and abroad. Yeah, well, the social justice uprisings, the protests and the way that the authorities here in the U. S reacted sentence. A terrible signal, Tonto. You know dictators around the world that This is the way to deal with with social protest. We have apartment with other organizations here in the U. S to track all the violations of press freedom in attacks on journalists over the past year in the state. We're looking at nearly 1000 incidents in 79 cities across the U. S of journalists being attacked or impeded from doing their work. Well. The 300 journalists have been assaulted this year in the U. S. And the bulk of those assaults have come from Lauren Force Mint. And so Way have no journalists in jail in the U. S, which is good, But more than 100 were arrested on criminally charged this year just for doing the Jobs on at the last count. We still have 12 journalists facing charges. So all this in a country which used to set an example to many countries in the world about how to deal with a free press and how to enable the press to do its job in a democracy. So we've bean we've bean setting an awful example not just this year, but over the last few years. But I'd also like to talk a little bit about journalists here in the United States and whether or not I mean there were some cases, I believe where journalists were apprehended covering protests. American journalists in particular give us a sense of the safety. On debility that journalists American journalists here well journalist here in the United States have had have had or not had during President Trump's administration. More broadly. Well, journalists out covering whether it's you know, demonstrations or just trying to do their jobs you have had to Threats this year in the U. S. One has come from the fear of being arrested or assaulted mainly by law enforcement and the other one is staying safe and not getting contracting the virus. Journalists have adapted pretty quickly to both. But a lot of a lot of journalists covering the protest didn't have sufficient protective equipment to be able todos with, you know, being assaulted or gassed or sprayed. S o that they've been. They've been a lot of incidents where journalists have been injured. We had one unfortunate journalist who lost an eye during a protest earlier in the year. So it's been a tough year for for journalists. But as I said, they have adapted pretty quickly. That's that's exactly What we expect them to be able to do to bring us the news, but nearly 1000 incidents of attacks on journalists in cities across the US And more than 300 journalists assaulted. These are unprecedented numbers in modern times, So I think that the press deserves to be able to do its work here. And of the rhetoric that we've seen deployed against journalists. They've been called gum and enemies of the people by President Trump. We hope that that stops and that journalist can control about doing that reporting without being targeted by by the by the head of state. And you know, Robert, I don't. It's more than the head of state. I think at this point I've seen people who are really buying into conspiracy theories right now and saying they distrust all of the quote unquote mainstream media. The president's rhetoric, and some of these conspiracy groups that have emerged over the course of his tenure have really had an effect on how average American citizens think about the media as well. What do journalists do there when people just say we don't trust you, and it appears to at least it feels like it's a growing number of people. Um, I think that makes us even less safe and doing our jobs. Yeah, That's part of that. That's part of a strategy where you undermine trust in the media so that no one will believe anything that you say it. Zwelling known. It's a well known political ploy. It's very, very dangerous for press freedom, because if you undermine the credibility of the media, no matter how much factual reporting, you do know how much no matter how many scoops you have People don't believe you. It doesn't matter. I think that The example has to come from the top to begin with. I think if leadership models the behavior that they would like to see in a in a free democracy where that you have Ah, functioning press, then I think things will improve. Not just here, but but overseas and at the committee to protect journalists. We put forward some proposals for the incoming brought Biden administration, which we hope will help repair some of the damage which is being done over the past four years. We would love President elect Biden to make a very strong declaration when he takes office of how his administration will support press freedom and value the work off the press in a democracy, not just here. Around the world so that the U. S will walk the walk. A Zwelling talked the talk when it comes to saying we have a free person we value First Amendment values. Then I would love for that administration to appoint a special envoy for press freedom. It would be for a few years, but that person would be able to speak out on press matters. Condemn attacks on journalists and work to restore some of the confidence that we need in the press if we don't if we can't believe an independent media citizens Then we are open to more conspiracy theories and bad actors, pumping misinformation and lies into our information world and just leaves us. Confused and afraid. As a journalist myself, Robert, I have to say I agree with you on. I hope that we can get on a better path. Robert Mahoney is the deputy.

"Activist around the world rallied last Wednesday as part of the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women. Today was meant to call attention to the so called shadow pandemic of violence against women and girls that emerged his country's were forced to lock down because of covert 19 trapping many at home with their abusers. According to the United Nations. Domestic violence has intensified in the months since the pandemic first began. In some places. Calls to help lines have increased five fold. And others shelters are at capacity. But before covert 19 global domestic violence had already reached epidemic proportions. Last year alone, 243 million women and girls worldwide were subjected to physical or sexual violence. Today we look at what international governments are doing to address the rise in domestic violence during the pandemic. And how that's playing out here. It home. I'm tan Xena Vega and that's where we start today. On the takeaway. I'm joined now by Anita Bhatia, the deputy executive director at U N Women, Anita. Thanks for joining us. It's a pleasure time. Xena. Hello there. How do we define the spectrum of abuse that in terms of domestic or intimate partner? Violence? Well, it ranges from what you can easily imagine it. Which is physical violence and the attacking off a woman's body by an intimate partner to more subtle forms of violence, including psychological violence, and, of course, Women are also preyed upon by unknown predators through cyber violence. Who is most at risk right now. Are we talking mostly about women and girls? Are we talking about LGBT Q people or people from other marginalized communities? I think there there are risks and all communities, but I really do want to underscore the risks right now to women and girls. Because the conditions that we are facing with renewed lockdowns are the very conditions that actually help perpetrators of violence. And that's why the secretary general of the U. N. Called for a cease fire at home because home is the place where women are the least safe. Tell us about some of the examples that you're seeing of how this pandemic has made domestic violence worse. For women because of either full lockdown shelter in place orders or even just the idea that we can't be in community with others. You know, here in the United States, we're not in a full lockdown. We're definitely more separated from others. Then we would normally be. You're absolutely right. And what happened at the beginning of the pandemic was that the shelter help lines across the world, not just in the U. S. Phones were ringing off the hook because the numbers of violence were going up so starkly everywhere. You and women was collecting data because we have, you know, pretty deep connections to women's rights groups on the ground in pretty much every country in the world, and what we were hearing was really staggering, So I think the shape that this violence has taken over the last nine months. Has been to bring out into the open something that had already existed and we knew that it was there, but it just became so much more visible in some ways during the pandemic because off Crisis situation that so many shelters and help lines found themselves and I'm wondering if we can even talk a little bit about what some of these environments air like that are leading to. This is part of it because He's a relationships that are already you know, marked by domestic violence and being kept away from friends and families and isolated only exacerbates that, or is it also Anita? The fact that many folks Are being forced to not just work from home but take care of their Children from home and sort of create this very pressure cooker oven environment. If you will, that many people are in or is it all of the above that's leading to these increased cases of domestic violence. I think the phrase that you used Pressure cooker is right, because off course, some of these cases were cases where abuse was a feature of family life even before the pandemic. The stress of being in lockdown and the perfect conditions for abuse that the pandemic created. I mean, think about it being forced not to leave the home. Having no access to community having no access to family for a perpetrator. This is a perfect set of conditions. So some of it, of course, was the repeat of what would have been a historic Batam in that family. Setting, But some of it is new, brought on by the stresses of not having work and by the pressure cooker effect off, just having to be at home all the time. Are there particular countries or regions where we're hearing Maura reports of domestic violence during the pandemic? Anita? I wish I could tell you that there was some countries where this wasn't happening. But our data actually shows that this has been a pretty universal trend. And one of the things of the pandemic has done is that it has enabled people to talk about this in a way that just wasn't possible before the pandemic. In fact, it has forced governments to talk about this in a way that hadn't been done before. Because it became such a big issue. So we've had countries like France where the government have to come out and rent 20,000 hotel rooms. To give shelter to victims of violence who had to escape home. We've had countries where the government had to come up with Secret codes that women could go and use, for example, at a local pharmacy to signal that they needed help, So governments have had to come out and speak about this. Where is previously You know, A lot of issues on violence against women were treated as just family issues that have to be sorted out at the family level, or perhaps of the community level, But not a matter of government public policy, and what the pandemic has done is that it has made this a new issue of government. Public policy, and that's why the secretary General of the U. N asked for a number of countries to join with him in calling for a ceasefire at home and in recognizing this as a shadow pandemic. I have a flipside question for you. I'm wondering as we're seeing. The rise of authoritarians governments in certain parts of the world..

"To look and feel a little different. Usually, the festival screenings are at Lincoln Center, but this year many of the films to be screening virtually and some of them will be screened at driving locations throughout the city. But some things about the festival will remain the same. There will be real premieres, filmmakers and older maybe for gotten films that we rarely get a chance to see. The New York Film Festival runs through Sunday, October 11th and Joining me Now for a preview are Eugene Hernandez, director of the New York Film Festival. Hi, Eugene. Hi, Allison. Congratulations on your anniversary. Thanks for having me. Thank you. Congratulations on your new post. You're also deputy executive director of the film at Lincoln Center and Dennis Limb who has been on our show before director of programming for the festival and film at Lincoln Center. Nice to be back. So Eugene, you became director of the film festival in February. Wow. Well, what were your plans for this year's festival before the pandemic? Well, look, it's been it's been a fascinating challenging on DH. Ultimately very meaningful and moving here. I have to say taking this opportunity. This is a festival that has meant so much to me personally for such a long time. I've lived in the same building and health kitchen for 27 years, and I've been a regular at the festival even before I decided to go work at a moment like a senator a decade ago. The opportunity to take this role gave Dennis and I on opportunity to kind of rethink the festival and, frankly, Move the goals we set out for ourselves at the beginning of this year. Our goals that we've been able to accomplish that is taking the festival out into the city being New York's Don't festival and really engaging with a new audience of New Yorkers, So it's been really hard to get to that point and there's been a lot of obstacles and I didn't No 100% that we would get to tonight. But here we are. Dennis. There are a lot of fellas people can see virtually how big is this Year's festival compared to the in person festival in recent years? It is about 25% smaller, so not not significantly smaller. I would say one of the changes that Eugene and I had in mind when we took over the new rolls and February, was it. Titan and streamline festival Little bit, So the idea was to keep it a bit tighter on DSO. We're at about 25 25% less than last year. Let's talk about the main slate of films. The festival opens tonight with the world premiere of Steve McQueen's film Lovers Rock, which is the first part of a serious called Small Acts, which is set in West Indian community in London, and all three parts are going to screen at the festival. Eugene, Why did you choose this to kick off the festival? Why Lovers rock? No. Um it's gotta get a phone call in the summer. It was it was in June. It was just after The murder of George Floyd, and it's got a phone call from Steve McQueen, filmmaker filmmaker who is One of the most accomplished artists, visual artists, filmmakers of our moments of our time. And he got the call about this series of films. The suite of films. And he asked if we would take a look at them, Uh, shared the details of that conversation and then was able to share the films without our selection committee. For folks who will attend tonight and there's still a few tickets left. Should, uh, you'll see when you see Lovers Rock tonight. What it was that struck US. Three films are about A specific place on a specific moment in British history, But they're also about the moment we're in in this city in this country right now, Dana Sweat struck you about lovers Rock. I think the whole project the whole small acts project that that that scum belongs to is really impressive and its scope and its ambition. You know, it's their set 40 50 years ago and London among the West Indian community and their stories of Struggle and conflict and they deal with, you know, racism, racial justice, police brutality on things that are obviously very relevant. Today. Lovers rock is the film in the Siri's that deals with Everyday experience. And it deals a joy. Ah, which I think is something we could use right now. Ah, and it's just, um you know, we wash the stones in June July As protests were unfolding around us as we were asking ourselves questions like what does it mean for black lives to matter on screen? And I think Lovers Rock is a film that answers that question in a really profound and beautiful way. My guest, Eugene Hernandez and Dennis Limb. We're talking about the New York Film Festival. Eugene I mentioned in the intro. They're going to drive in locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx in collaboration with rooftop films. How many of the films will be screened at drive ins? And what else should we know about the films that are gonna be at the drive ins? Well, first of all, Yes, there's driving's in multiple places around the city. A selection of films will be available in the drive ins we have. Ah, ah, limited number of night. Um, I think it correctly done it. Maybe, like 35 or 35 nights over the next three weeks. Uh, various.
