and you're having to travel out of the state and for those that are in surrounding areas depending on how licensing is set up individuals from anywhere in the country can provide this care to individuals This week the Biden administration filed an emergency request to a federal judge in Austin to block enforcement of the Texas abortion ban which makes no exceptions for rape sexual abuse or incest on Wednesday Maryland and Virginia attorneys general joined others across the nation to file a legal brief supporting the Justice Department's challenge of the Texas band calling it unconstitutional Floyd describes the laws devastating for letting private citizens file civil lawsuits against anyone who helps attacks and terminate a pregnancy Empowering private citizens to enforce an abortion hand It could be a family member can it be a partner even a stranger from out of state can sue a provider or support person and that could be anything from someone who was helping from a financial standpoint to even someone who's driving a patient Floyd thinks the Texas law might spur changes in medication abortion rules according to the gut locker institute abortion inducing

Colorado's attorney general says a civil rights investigation that began amid outrage over the death of la Jean Elijah McLean has found that a suburban Denver police department has a pattern of racially biased policing Attorney general Phil weiser says that the investigation found the aurora police department has long had a culture in which officers treat people of color especially African Americans differently than white people Investigation was the first of its kind launched under a sweeping police accountability law passed in Colorado amid protests over the killing of George Floyd Why is this office is also prosecuting three police officers and two paramedics on manslaughter criminally negligent homicide and assault charges in Elijah McLean's death The former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder in George Floyd's death pled not guilty today on charges of violating a teenagers civil rights in a separate case that involved a restraint similar to the one used on Floyd Derek Chauvin was convicted this year on state charges of murder and manslaughter in Floyd's 2020 death He's also charged in federal court with violating Floyd's civil rights Another indictment against Chauvin alleges he carried out a similar attack against a then 14 year old boy in 2017 It was also black The indictment says Chauvin held the team by the throat getting him in the head with a flashlight held his knee on the boy's neck and upper back while he was prone handcuffed and not resisting The Minnesota Supreme Court has thrown out the third degree murder conviction of a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot a woman who called 9-1-1 to report a possible rape behind her home Muhammad nour an African American cop was convicted of third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in the 2017 death of a white woman Justine Damon was sentenced to 12 and a half years on the murder count He was not sentenced for manslaughter In the ruling the state Supreme Court clarified what would constitute a third degree mortar or as is called depraved mind murder saying the statute doesn't apply if a defendant's actions are directed at a particular person The ruling could give former police officer Chauvin grounds to contest his own third degree murder conviction in the George Floyd death but that wouldn't have much impact on Chauvin since he was also convicted of the more serious count of second degree murder and is serving 22 and a half years on that count Experts say it's unlikely Chauvin would be successful in appealing his second degree murder conviction The ruling in Norse case was also closely watched for its possible impact on three other former Minneapolis officers the waiting trial in Floyd's death prosecutors had wanted to add charges of aiding and abetting third degree murder against them That's unlikely to happen now The three men are due to go on trial next march on charges of aiding and abetting both second degree murder and

His scientific mind all these things have impressed me very very much. And i couldn't be happier to have him on and just rattle off some more questions and sit back and bask in his answers ivor. Welcome back thanks. Tom grades be here. Men have you established a name for yourself. In this thing i mean. I know you're like me in that. I would gladly go back to the level of notoriety. I had before this. If i could just have the world back the way it was when i had you on last the download numbers just went through the roof. People saw your name and they just flocked to the episode. You've been really doing heroic work this whole time. So i want to have you back. Because there are some things that even i after all the newsletters and podcast episodes. I've done even. I have some questions. I'd like to get some clarity on but let me start by running something by you and getting your thoughts on it okay. I want to do something on youtube. I know there are two alternatives. And i should be using those. I agree but there are a lot of people out there watching on youtube. And i don't want to miss out on reaching the problem is youtube has a policy. That's very vague when it comes to covid. Nineteen about what you say. And i've been trying to get clarification from them and they're saying well you have to. If you're going to come out against what the cdc is recommending at the very least you have to state the cdc's position clearly and an identify that your dissenting from it and this and then even then there's no guarantee you're not gonna be in trouble. So here's what. I what i wanna do. I have looked at a lot of these charts. Some of them that you've created some of that. Our friend ian miller has created and i liked designing quizzes. Like guess which chart shows a place that closed indoor dining and which of the other three didn't and of course you have no way of knowing the difference or here are the dozen or so american midwestern states there depicted on this chart. But i haven't told you which color is which state one of them has completely gotten rid of all its restrictions there actually several go ahead and try and pick that out for me on the of course. No one can keep getting a zero. I want design some charts where everyone would get zero. But i would just be very subtle about it. I'd say i'm not trying any conclusions from this. And i'll remind you that the cdc says lockdowns and masks effective. I just wondering what would you expect the charts to look like if that were really the case. What would you expect them to look like..

That he doesn't think everson's better than kyrie irving but the reality is he basically said no one likes him and everyone hated playing with him because he's a ball hog but the reality is in my opinion like numbers. Don't lie everything in the nba is about numbers in rings. And i get that he wanted ring. And i just said it simply add lebron james down iberson never had anything he never had anybody and the bottom line is is that his numbers are so staggeringly higher than kyrie irvings.

He's never done it so his best season ever twenty five points whatever. Seventeen in college none of never wants iverson beat him in every level college and pro every level every season. What do you think all with you. I think is definitely a more talented player in physically gets it.

"From California based F F F enterprises. Police in the Netherlands arrested more than 400. Rioters nationwide this week after a violent backlash to a national nightly curfew designed to reduce social contact during the pandemic came into effect on January 23rd. Simon marks, reports. The doctor, Prime Minister Mark Ruta introduced an overnight curfew on Saturday to slow the pandemics thread, but that led to a paradox. Ism of fury in towns and cities across the country. Police at one point had to use water cannon to subdue protesters armed with rocks has more than 5000 people were arrested on charges of disregarding the curfew. Robin Pascoe is the editor of Dutch news dot NL. The first two nights were I think you could say connected to the cove. It restrictions we've had mayors from various cities appealing to parents. Keep your Children at home. Keep your sons at home. Do you know where they are? In fact, Rotterdam's and there are made of a Talib, who's known as Quentin Out Spoken character made a rather low key appeal and just said, Do you feel good? Now that you've caused havoc in your city? What did it feel like waking up this morning with a butt with a bag full of stolen property next to your bed. People are a short, very surprised. The prime minister said the situation is unacceptable. He called it criminal violence. The authorities believe that much of it is not directly related to covert 19 but vandalism and the release of a social pressure cooker. It is built up over months of tension and lockdowns. Simon marks reporting As the pandemic reinforces the value of care givers. Groups in the state of Virginia are urging state lawmakers to pass the trio of bills. They're calling the domestic workers Bill of Rights. I am Bernard has that story. They'd help more than 60,000, nannies, cleaners and home care workers, gate worker protections. Ingrid vodka and undocumented housekeeper from the Livia says This kind of support is especially important during the pandemic as she and her colleagues have lost clients over concerns about spreading the virus. And last fall, she and her two Children contracted covert 19. Baca says she and others desperately needs support like paid time off and unemployment insurance. Because we don't have any protection. And also you know if we have to eat, we have to pay that rain. We pay our touches. But what happened with the government with the state? They don't give to us maybe a little bit because we give a lot for many people. Senate Bill 1310 proposed by several Jennifer McClellan without domestic workers to all Virginia's existing worker protection laws. Companion bills also seek to include them in workplace discrimination protections. And the state's worker's compensation Act. Last year, Virginia lawmakers passed a historic bill securing the first wage protections for domestic workers in the South. Alexis Rogers with the nonprofit Karen Action says it was an important first step, but more needs to be done. She points out that only now is the state attempting to undo discriminatory laws from the Jim Crow era that left out protections for jobs, mostly performed by black and brown. Workers, like housekeepers did take some accent. On removing Jim Crow exemptions related to Newsboys and shoe shiners. But domestic workers are also very important part of our economy. We have to make sure that these workers are also detected. Research shows more than 90% of Spanish speaking domestic workers lost jobs because of the pandemic. The majority didn't apply for unemployment insurance because they didn't believe they qualified for Virginia News connection. I'm Diane Bernard. Democratic lawmakers in the Senate and the House of Representatives have introduced legislation this week that would raise the nation's minimum wage to $15 an hour. The federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 an hour, which the lawmakers say is too low for too many people. Keep your face Daniel Witty reports. Raised the Wages Act would increase wages for more than 32 million workers. More than half of them are a sensual supporters of the bill say it would also address racial disparities by raising the wages for one third of black workers. And about a quarter of Latinos, and it would help women workers, since many women are more likely to be paid poverty wages than men. Red states, like Missouri, Arkansas and Florida have passed minimum wage increases supported by voters and wide margins. Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is sponsoring the raise the Wage Act. In the Senate. He says. People shouldn't have to live in poverty in the richest country on Earth. And the minimum wage should be a living wage that allows people to live with dignity. There ain't nobody in America. Not in the north, the South east of the west, who can survive on $7.25 an hour federal minimum age. You can't make it a nine bucks. You can't make it on $12 an hour. And our job as the United States government is to make it clear that in the richest country in the history of the world, if you work 40 hours a week, you should not be living in poverty. Congress hasn't passed a minimum wage increase since 2007 when it boosted the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour. Sanders says that if the raise the wage act becomes law, the average American would receive an extra $3300 per year. Since 1998 states have passed minimum wage increases whenever they have come up on the ballot. Friend Mary and is a 40 year old worker at McDonald's in Kansas City. I want everyone to understand the impact the razor rage at what happened millions of workers like myself. Simply put a $15 an hour will be life changing. I'm a single mother. Two teenagers Raven and Rashaad and $15 an hour help us keep a permanent roof over our heads. Food on our table, healthcare and money to send them to college. And most of all, and I mean, I can look my kids in the eye and tell them that I can give them a life better than my Marion says that eight states plus Washington, D. C have passed $15 minimum wage requirements, she says too many black and brown workers like her Have been left behind in the midst of the pandemic. And their communities have been devastated. To raise the wage act comes as the United States is facing major economic crises with unemployment at 12%. Senator Patty Murray says that essential workers have kept the U. S going during this pandemic. They include bus drivers, grocery clerks, fast food workers at cetera. She says that these essential workers are putting themselves at risk of covert 19 in order to keep the country going. And that they're a large portion of the economy. Murray says. This bill will end the tipped sub minimum wage. This is especially important given that most tip workers are women, and given that women of color make up a disproportionate amount of tipped workers. This only further exacerbates racial inequities in our economy. These workers are facing increased levels of harassment and exposure to the coroner virus during this pandemic, but still making wages as low as $2.13 $2.13 an hour plus tips. Supporters of the bill say that the pandemic has increased the importance of passing such a bill. And they hope it will be passed soon for K P F a news..

She also thinks it's important to discuss the attempt to undermine African American votes, a move historically associated with white supremacy. The counting of votes is One of the most precious rights that we have in our country. This lawsuit was an attempt to devalue the votes of people.
