FEMA Has an Equity Problem
"Before you tell me about your visit with donny. Helped me understand the background. Here what is us role after disasters like hurricanes. Well it's pretty straightforward. Fema is supposed to help people with their immediate needs and safe. Stable shelter. is the big one. So people who own homes can apply for money to repair damage or finding a place to live if the house was completely destroyed. And there's also money to help cover the cost of rent or a hotel room and then sometimes fema brings in temporary trailers that you might have heard about an emergency housing. And what do we know about who ends up getting that money right. So that's the question. I've been asking for years now. Actually so all the way back in two thousand seventeen. I noticed that poor people seem to be struggling to get adequate help from fema and it was anecdotal and mostly noticed in houston after hurricane harvey back then there were some studies coming out that suggested that fema assistance was disproportionately benefiting whiter wealthier people. And i imagine you ask fema about that. And what did they say. Yeah i did and basically. They said that their programs were designed to be fair. Everyone can apply for help under the same criteria so it's a level playing field then fast forward a couple of years and i heard from a source of mine that fema had been doing some internal analyses about this exact topic. So you know a reporter. I asked to see them and initially fema denied that. Npr appealed months went by but eventually they gave these records to me and the records showed low income. Disaster survivors are less likely to receive some types of housing assistance from fema. When they do receive money they often receive

Asylum Seekers Are Allowed Into U.S. For Their Day In Immigration Court
"Now, the odds for asylum seekers are long. But the courts are so slow that he may live in the United States for years awaiting his court date. So the Biden administration's new policy just changed. Manfredo is life. The story is different for other people behind him, including some people in the camp. He just left. NPR's John Burnett was at that camp this week and is on the line. John what you find Steve Well, the most infamous refugee camp on the US Mexico border is almost empty. A month ago, it was teeming with more than 600 migrants. And today there are only a few dozen people left. Now it's looking like a deserted shanty town. With all these colorful camping tents flapping in the Gulf breeze and no one's inside them. City workers are hauling out great piles of garbage and personal belongings. U. S immigration agents began processing the folks there first, in part because so much international intention was focused on this wretched camp with its snakes, mosquitoes and mud. Ah, so that explains why Manfredo was so quickly able to cross the border. But who are the people who have not been able to cross? Well, they're mostly Central American migrants have already lost their asylum cases. One of them is Donny Lopez Rossa, a 28 year old Honduran. Had been to the can't many times over the past two years, and I'd met with him before, and boy did he have a rough time? The first time I met him, he was lying in his tent recovering from a vicious mugging. His face was a swollen mass of bruises. Gangsters had tried to extort him. Barasa is still there because the U. S immigration judge didn't believe his story that he fled Honduras to escape the thugs there. And the corrupt police in his country. And then now he's lost his appeal so that ASA says the mood there is bittersweet. He says there's sadness because he and others were left behind. But there's happiness because so many have been able to leave and finally get into the US. Why is he remaining in that awful camp, though? Well process says he believes God will still deliver him across the border. If the Biden administration will have mercy on people like him who suffered in that camp for so long, and the camp has been there for nearly two years, and you know, close relationships have been forged in adversity. Some people fell in love, including PAGASA. Come in, come in, he says. I was with my girlfriend for more than a year. She and her daughter crossed the border last Friday.

The clearwater resident convinced fellow craft lover and then tampa mayor. Bob buckhorn to declare february fifteenth. More craft. Beer day in tampa. I recently spoke to donny. About what makes florida's craft beer scene unique and why he says craft beer is here to stay. Why are you so passionate about craft beer. A lot of people drink beer. But you live it. Thank you for saying that. That's true and it's actually been a part of my life since two thousand seven so i actually had about five years of formal training. We'll just call it our good friend. Bud and bud is one of the biggest bill factors in the world. I mean this was a much different beer scene back than in two thousand seven. But ever since then i was inspired because i found that When i was with our friend bud my role was basically teaching people how to pair beer and food and what i found was that people were fascinated by. They take the knowledge that that we shared and they would they would go to their local And impress their friends. They would sit down and tell their wife whose probably not interested at all or could have been back then before grant. There was a things who really knows. But it's just been great in people interested in learning that stuff and so of the podcast mission was to to set up in in his league with that flip four because people related enjoy learning and so we can inspire that learning to keep going by going out of your bubble going down the street finding. What's new if you're at a restaurant you love. Try the new seasonal thing. I love talking to me bone so it's really just been a part of life for a long time no so you actually worked for budweiser. We're not just talking about drinking in your dorm room yet. Nope nickname society was actually bush before they were in bed so during that transition or the team helped layup marking planning strategy how that went on learning from big beer was critical was huge because you learn from big beer. I mean obviously became big beer for as craft. Beer continued to grow in the country. Locally around me i just saw all these little pop up and i said hey. People still love to talk about beer. I learned lot from the brewing process outta market beer. Talk about beer. How to enjoy the how to get non beer drinkers into beer. It's surprising legion. Really do with beer food and and that stuff stayed with me forever. What is craft beer. I think a lot of people who drink the bigger brands might look at it as a hipster thing. Why should we care about craft beer. Craft beer is more than just something you drink and you can look at this now as you drive down the street. There's mom and errs in embar. Owners that are brewpubs sir. Tap room's or what have you. There's families that are in brewing. There is a local economies. there's billions of dollars nationally. Hundreds of millions of dollars for just the state of florida alone. Hundred thousand jobs for floridians and nationwide. You know that number continues to grow even though we're kind of weird time but it's a community really more than than just a delicious beverage. That will you know just feeling good. Is there a difference in the taste. If you put two glasses of beer in front of me and one was a craft beer and one was a big name beer. What would i notice. What's the difference. The big name beer brews. I don't want to say generic but they really type of beer that everybody will drink right. Statistically if you're gonna put a product out on a mass scale you want it to be uniformly accepted and that's fantastic the beauty of craft beer and the thing that you can't get from a big beer you can get grasp beer are things like subtle nuances flavors of flavor diversity. A different things that that big beer just can't either monetize or they just don't want to little beer. Make say little beer craft beer making much smaller scale can experiment they can push the boundaries of what this stuff can do. They can really get get you again out of your shell on your comfort zone. You may never had a black pepper strawberry basil longer. But let me tell you. It's one of my favorite beers of ever tried things like that. You'd never get from big the. Yeah i want one now. The words black pepper strawberry basil. I'm like i will be better salad. I will drink it in a glass. It's fantastic oh that's amazing. Do you brew your own beer. I do. I've been doing now for over four and a half years ago pretty much again when we started all this stuff. I was like you know what i talk about it enough. I might as well Talk the talk and walk the walk. So i started brewing. The actually that rest of the ideas reference. It was a paleo my recipe not logger. But that's my favorite beer that i've of recruit black dampers strawberry basil three amazing flavors. That really bring out some spicy halio. set go well with just as easy to really good stuff out. That's a good tip. So i'm sure a lot of people would like to get into brewing their own beer especially as we're all home more these days. It could be a fun hobby to start in the new year. What advice do you have for beginners short. So the the internet is your friend of course part of that community that i keep referencing about craft. Beer is that not only the burs and the people that do it professionally but the hobbyists and those who do it for fun or just do to experiment are also very interested in sharing knowledge and in being helpful for the industry which munity When i say community. I'm not lying like you can go on facebook and find about one hundred groups within twenty miles of your house that you can tap into for knowledge and sourcing in recipes or how to's or or getting recommendations things like that it truly is a community but the hardest part about home bruin is simply starting. The equipment is cheap enough. The knowledge is out there that time that takes is like you said rawle home now. It's it's might be a couple of our process but from start to finish you. Can you can have it all done in. Learn and have. This is great experience. So it's it's really more simple than than you'd think it is. It's as simple as making a pot of pasta really.

I still remember like times where i was like super depressed down in just go out to the bookstore or video game shop and we look around and it just always picked me up on a game trader and yeah those are great times s- like that's what that's probably the thing i miss the most. Is those things those little just going out going around to shop for a few hours point going to different shops maybe buying something maybe buying nothing going to get some food at some random place wherever we can find going dropping them back off or dropped me back off. And that's that all the times that i will get suspended from school and he would skip school to be there are few. I'm remembering things from my like twenties and thirties sitting. You've got like from your teens. I mean it's all it's all to there was like uc to think hung by yourself. Hung out a lot more in your teams but like when we got into her thirties. You were you were out of state for a while with your work and donated. Move back into a nashville where i was living and so we got to hang out a lot or yeah because there was time in our after we graduated high school with three very different exit directions and so we still hung out but not as often. We'd like meet up every few months or every six or so months and just hang out for a while like a week or something where we would see to other several days and then we'd be off back to the world until late twenty s. Then there was that year that me live together now that we read each other's throats for some period of ever live with your close friends lesson. Learn trust me.

He had the money to be able to take time and effort and be able to play minor leagues for as long as he wanted. It wasn't he didn't need the money right and apparently he was getting better. I've never looked up at stats. Everybody talked about the made fun of him when he kept striking out but a then people stop paying attention to him and apparently he started getting better after they stop. Pay after the writer. Stop paying attention to logical. Yeah and then he got good. He was getting better. Probably going to promote it to the majors in the next few years could've but turn around and the baseball strike happened and so he couldn't play baseball because he wasn't going to cross the line and he went back to basketball and the rest is they say is history. Indeed they do say. History is with the wizards. Nobody wants to remember his history with the wizards but yeah donning was from chicago so of course. He's probably a bulls fan in the ninety s. Like i don't know yeah. I got so many good memories with the i mean like i said most of my memories were video game related. Antennas related we talk about festivus already. We talked about that already. Probably not we there for a few years we celebrated. Yeah we did. It was It's really hard to celebrate festivus because there's only a few things they're not like you could all the things you get from the interesting enough episode called the strike strike episode where you learn about festivus or at least the version we hear about. 'cause festivus was actually a real saying right by one of the writers parents had admitted it or something in the it or something like that. Yeah but you only hear like three things that happen and you can do that on like ten minutes. Yeah but that. That's the great thing about it is you. Can you can manipulate it to be whatever you want it to be. And we all celebrated it. Your family got into it. It seemed like they were coming to festivus parse there.

She lost in the next round. Unfortunately but i lost that round then it was. I was okay with it. I knew going to probably lose. But i one earlier that day and it was sad because i think she could have won her next match the next day but she didn't she just thinks you got a little nervous. You still new at. This was her first like she'd been playing for like three months at that point and she was doing. Really good yeah. She's very athletic. Plainfield other sports and she. I think she just got a little nervous on it but so she could have. I think she could have gone into the final district's but i digress. That was and then we all got on the bus and went back to school and we actually came the next day but we all came back to support her because she was the only one who made it today too. I did yeah takeaways. I got a school for nothing. Just heard just hanging out with references. A great yet. Yeah i remember. i can't remember. I think it was the senior year. Donny finally won his first singles match. He'd won some doubles matches but he never won a singles match. And i remember when it happened. It was against the best team in the in our district and he was so happy. And i was so shocked and i think that was senior year. That might have been junior year. And i don't know how many matches he ended up winning but a day. Remember that first win against the best team in the league or district technically And that was really cool. Yeah yeah especially whenever you see the like he he. He worked pretty hard to be good. We practice a lot like yeah. I think we went like at least once or twice a week right downtown.

We finally figured out how you're supposed to play the game so we go into this event and they're making a big deal out of it because like hey it's teams only tennis team in the county. At the time. I think they added more tennessee teams over time but it was the only school the hannatised so we go our assistant principal. He's going to drive a school bus for us so we we don't have to drive our cars like we had like. We did the year before and so we all go up there all the players. I think my my dad came to believe in. I think he drove his truck. Yeah yeah that's right. Like he drove me the first year and but this year we all got we all got into the school bus and go up to flight and then as assistant principal turns into the park. He hits a concrete. Curb blows a tire out on the school bus on the school bus. He blew a tire out on school. Bus it was phenomenal. So it wasn't a curve was like there was it was all so he's going up all right so there's a constrained driveway to get up to this place where we're going and as you're heading up. The hill is a hill. it's a small driveway. They call it a dry goods road. It's a small road. You go up the hill and then there's like a t and there's a right hand turn a left hand turn and on the right hand side. There was a lamp. At concrete pillar holden lampposts and the place. And so he's gone. He's taking a right. He cut the right to short. The back wheel ran up on the concrete pillar was probably about three feet off the ground right and it slice the tire just completely size it in you felt the bus like like it lived up and slammed back down. It was frigging whole areas. They had this. Yeah it was a loud pop or whatever were all like what the hell was that so then so they had to call out like a repair team to come out to the field to fix the bus while we were there playing tennis. Yeah so it was noisy. People complain because you heard this loud drilling and you over and over again as they didn't take them that long to repair it once. They started because it doesn't take forever to change a tire right. guess. I don't know how long it seemed like it was all day but obviously it wasn't so yeah that happened and then we all play first round match right and so it's myself in a another girl who were the only two that win our first round matches everybody else in districts everybody gets to play their singles or doubles. They make it where anybody who wants to play place. And then they rank them based on various things In everybody loses their first round match. But the two of us. So we're on playing our second round match and then we started at nine. Am was our first match in twelve set.
