White People Go to Rehab, Black People Go to Jail
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to recovery. Happy Hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stopped drinking. If you listen closely, you can hear my neighbor's dogs barking amp dishwasher running. Thank you for joining me. On today's episode, we've got Amy Dresner I have been following amy since I read her fantastic memoir, my fair junkie in two thousand seventeen have always wanted to have her on the podcast, but I never asked because she's on like every podcast. So I figured she'd just be tired of them by now. And there are two things I need to say about that last sentence one is that her memoir is freaking great. It's hilarious. It's heart wrenching. It's shocking and I personally believe that have to find a way to laugh at life starker moments or else you'll go crazy. The other thing is I didn't reach out to amy to talk about my fair junkie. I. Actually reached out after she wrote an article called white people go to Rehab. Black people go to jail. I run the article and the stories are all told by people of Color. It's well researched and amy's voice really isn't a huge part of it. You can't argue the fact that people of color are incarcerated for drug offenses at a rate. That's not proportionate to those of white people, and if you're listening to the show right now because you want tips on recovery I promise you, they're coming up, got good stuff coming later on, but just listen to these statistics. Okay. For example, nonviolent block criminals stay in prison for about the same length of time as violent white criminals. Here are some other interesting facts to listen to white people are more likely than black and connects people to sell drugs yet, the racist consume drugs at similar rates. According to drug policy. Dot. Org. Nearly eighty percent of people in federal prison and almost sixty percent in state prison for drug offenses are black or Latin X in addition research shows that prosecutors are twice as likely to pursue a mandatory minimum sentence for black people as for white people charged with the same offence. In two, thousand, ten per one, hundred, thousand people in the American population, an average of four, hundred and fifty white people were incarcerated. An average of eight hundred, thirty, one Hispanic people were incarcerated. And an average of two, thousand, three, hundred, and six black people more incarcerated. So. What are these statistics say? Well, they can mean a lot of things. Not realizing that everybody with drug offence has an issue with substance abuse, but the likelihood is higher. So we've got a large number of people incarcerated who suddenly been pulled away from their drug of choice or their alcohol inner sitting and waiting to get out. There's Rehab in prison. There's no recovery resources. You know there's no accountability groups nothing. Occasionally, twelve step meetings happened in prison. So we've got one fundamental method of recovery occasionally being brought to them. So. Once you strip away the privilege of the basics like personal freedom. You don't get any recovery while you're in jail, you're just expected to be absent and that's it. You know related to this topic is also the lack of resources for people with substance use disorder once they're released from jail or prison. This too is a problem that's likely not going away anytime soon, like check this out, did you know that former inmates are one hundred and twenty, nine percent more likely to die within two weeks of release due to overdose? Lack of treatment during incarceration and tolerance levels being so low after a period of absence plays a huge part in that. And also, overdose is the number one cause of death for former inmates. I hear this and my heart breaks. You know because as if recovery isn't hard enough having to recover while you're locked up with zebra resources. That can basically be a death sentence. This relates to our topic on because big picture. We're sentencing white people less giving them more opportunity and privilege to seek out recovery and sentencing people of color more and essentially starving them if any opportunity to recover. Does that sound as backwards to you as it does to me.
Will the Coronavirus Create a Data Breach in Your Company? with Jodi Daniels
"Jody. What's up to fire nation and Shears at the interesting about yourself that most people don't know well how lo I am so delighted to be here with everyone and thank you for listening. So for the what I don't know I'm going to be. It'll be fun. So here we go. Does anybody have a map anybody? Maybe happen to know how to do this? I don't know if you can tell this is me. Pretending to know so little singing from my favorite Broadway show. Dear Evan. Hansen. Racing Beijing I will tell you this two, thousand, five, hundred, eighty, four episodes in. You're the first person to sing on the show I am just to the moon jody. Two different. So there. Is. Oil Is Enviro. Nation when we're talking about will this corona virus creates a data breach in your company and we've brought Jordan on the Mike. We've talked a lot about in the introduction, what we will be sharing throughout this episode. Bless just diving. There's a lot to get to a lot of really important stuff for you nation. So please take some notes. Notes, what are some clues jody to identify what a phishing email is? Yeah. There's there's a couple and you know just to make sure everyone knows what fishing is fishing and there's all kinds of other fancy words. It's now come to text messaging. It's like visiting and swishing and I don't know put a bunch of letters together and make it s shing. What happens is I'm impersonating it looks like I'm a real email, but in actuality I'm not I'm kind of spoofing another fancy word somebody else and. In the last couple months, it's been up three, hundred, fifty percent. It's a tremendous problem in. It's one of the easiest for a bad actor, a threat actor to try and take advantage of. So one of the very easiest places is to look at the the sender. It might say a name that you're familiar with, but you can look at the actual you are l. of or the email address of the sender in. You can tell like, CDC, Dot Gov Dot Org. There's no dot org at the end of DOT GOV or if it came from Amazon prime, it's not gonNA. Come from Amazon prime at comcast dot net. So you look at that particular one, and if the emails a little sketchy, you're not sure a highly advise you use the reading pain in most email providers to be able to look for some of these clues, some of the other ones. Ones are poor spelling or grammar. Most emails don't just say, dear, customer, they're gonNA say on. Dear, jody, they're going to personalize it. If you got just dear customer, there's probably a phishing email again, the U. R. L. and you can also look in the footer because they might change the logo. They might change the address. It doesn't look like the standard footer that you're used to getting. There might be attachment if you get attachments or links on these things, do not doubt open the email don't click the attachment. Don't click the link. That's how they get all the malware onto your computer, and the other big clue is going to be if there's an urgent need or threat like must act now open right away, call us within an hour something like that. Most. Places that are going to need urgent information are not going to do that. They're going to call you. They're going to other methods or they're going to say log into your account and they wouldn't even provide the appropriate link. They would just say go directly to our website and go do it. So those are going to be some of the really common places to be able to identify a phishing
Delayed Umbilical Cord Clamping After Birth
"Before we dive into the interview with her, we're going to continue our little. Introduction. Birth plans series we've talked about preparing for your GB as test. We've talked about Bernie we've talked about all sorts of different things and today. I'm just going to touch on delayed cord clamping because it is something. So as a Dula. I started practicing in Vegas years ago, and at the time, not one provider would do it and it is something that is very beneficial for your children. And now more research is coming out saying that it is. Something that you should definitely consider putting in your birth plan and talking to your provider about so. According to. The. Pregnancy Association. It. Can Be very beneficial when he will allow the cord to. You don't clamp right away and you allow it to pulse for twenty five seconds up to five minutes after giving. Birth it allows blood to transfer from the placenta to the baby. Sometimes increasing the child's blood volume by up to a third there's tons of amazing iron stores in there. which is really good for healthy brain development also according to the a dot Org, which is the American College of obstetricians and gynecologists. It talks about how? DELETE UMBILICAL CORD clamping increases haemoglobin levels at birth in improved iron stores in the first several months of life, which may be very favorable for developmental outcomes. It can prevent NIMIA. A lot of kids can sometimes be Nimick in the first six months of life and with delayed cord clamping. Less and less, but with any decision you're making. It's also really important to know Not only benefits but the the potential risks and things like that. The only downside that they can see is that sometimes there is a small increase in John. Indus that might require therapy. In a certain group of infants. So there's the benefit of getting all that extra blood in iron stores and that helps with brain development and preventing anemia. But there is a very slight increase chance of having jaundice. So I can actually say in all my years practicing for anybody who has done it I have not seen jaundice case but I know that that research is out there that does back that. So as long as you have the information to. Make the best decision for yourself and for your family and have this conversation with your healthcare provider that to me I feel like is what counts I know that something that we're planning on doing it's a standard practice where. I am delivering so and we do touch on it. Next week a midwife is going to be on and she's going to just touch on it briefly, but I just wanted to go over the. So few are making your birth plan. Definitely look into delayed cord clamping I'm going to leave the links to these articles. In today's show

Join Us in Prayer for Our Nation
"To join us for the call center. I'm John. Stonestreet, this is great for. Christians should be among those most deeply concerned about the divided state of our nation left versus right mass. No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would. Allow us to be instruments in the sustaining of religious freedom and the recovery of the family in our nation. Each prayer time will feature a devotional challenge and a prayer by Christian leaders such as Oz Ganesh Johnny Eric's Totta focus on the family President Jim Daly Woodside Bible Pastor Chris Brooks and watermark pastor Todd Wagner as well as at Stecher from the Billy Graham Center and the Heritage Foundation President Keiko James Now due to the limited capacity of zoom there will be limited live spots each week available to everyone who registers However, each weeks recording will be sent to anyone who registers so come to breakpoint dot org for more details and Fiji's Paul tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places when people see us their enemies, it's difficult to remember that they aren't our enemies. So what we need to do as Paul Instructs this put on the former of God Faith Truth Righteousness Peace Salvation the word of God. And he says praying at all times in the spirit with all prayer and supplication keeping alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints, and the Book of acts the earliest church activity we read off is prayer thousands of people from completely different backgrounds came together in one mind one art in prayer with one accord. That's what acts chapter one, verse fourteen and Chapter Two versus forty. Two seven says than what happened with the Holy Spirit moved in the world was never the same in fact, every spiritual revolution in history. With some kind of unified persevering prayer the very first outpouring of the holy. Spirit. In acts to the great awakenings, the businessman's revival and the Welsh revival story after story, you read the same thing people prayed God's spirit moved on the other hand every Christian history who was able to persevere and righteousness. Temptation or persecution without seeing revival in their lifetime they also did that through prayer. Our prayer of course cannot force God's hand but are only way forward is to seek his will together are purse can't control God. But we can invite him to change our hearts and minds including our own gods always working in our lives whether we realize it or not. But something powerful and world changing happens when people pray for God's spirit to move. The, Great Jonathan Edwards urged his fellow pastors to quote be much in prayer and fasting both in secret and with one another it is God's will. He said that the prayers of his saints shall be great and the principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world. When God has something to accomplish for his church, it is with his will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayer of his people Paul even tells us to pray for all things at all times for sesame chapter five specifically for our leaders both spiritual and secular as what the
Assisted Suicide for the Healthy
"Physician assisted suicide is sold to the public as a compassionate measure necessary to spare those who have no reasonable chance of recovery from the unbearable pain and suffering of the last days of their life. But in every context in which it's been made legal, however, what may be called euthanasia by another name has never remained limited to those rare instances on which it was sold. There are reasons that this particular slope has proven. So slippery literally everywhere, it's ever been made legal once it's decided that certain lives are. Not. Worth. Living well the list of people eligible for physician assisted suicide inevitably grows and as a list of people without intrinsic value grows, it becomes impossible to reevaluate lives based on some other criteria perhaps convenience or financial cost. Then it's a small step indeed from eligible to die to expected to die and wherever doctor assisted suicide is legalized and another Bayton switch from what is sold to the public. The category of terminal illness is often expanded to include chronic illnesses and permanent disabilities even mental illness and depression is Now considered sufficient justification for suicide in places such as Belgium and the Netherlands given this trajectory. It's only a matter of time before we dispense altogether with any requirement of any illness and fact that seems to be what's happening in the Netherlands a recently introduced bill. There would allow healthy individuals over the age of seventy five to request assisted suicide. If they had quote a strong death, wish for at least two months, the bill which is expected to be up for votes time in two, thousand, twenty, one would according. To the bill's sponsor, give the elderly the choice at an advanced age if they consider their lives complete to die with dignity with careful health thankfully, the two Christian parties in the governing coalition strongly opposed this measure, but it's GonNa be tough to keep it from becoming law after all bills only the next logical step in the whole Dutch trajectory having a brace what novelist Walker Percy called Sanitize Syndrome. Every promise to limit euthanasia in any way has only been broken everywhere and any so-called safeguards have been swept aside. For example, the people were promised that only those certifiably in their right mind would be euthanized. That was a lie after all anyone who goes into an American emergency room and tells doctors they have a strong death wish are gun with live with they'd be diagnosed with suicidal ideation admitted to the psych ward to not do this would be medical malpractice. Suicidal ideation is rightly regarded as a symptom of an underlying mental disorder and people who have untreated mental illnesses are not allowed to make life and death decisions or. At least they weren't in Oregon's doctor assisted suicide was legalized there over ninety six percent of people given lethal drugs never underwent a psychiatric evaluation to not evaluate at all is neglect. But if this Dutch bill becomes law, any elderly person who admits suicidal wishes won't be helped they'll be referred to those who will help them turn their wishes into reality. All of this is why as our recent what would you say video says? So clearly, there is nothing compassionate about physician assisted suicide nothing in fact, it's the exact. Opposite of compassion it's the abdication of civilized peoples responsibility to offer compassion to those who need it most when they need it most in his book Fanta Syndrome Walker Percy described how a society evolves to the point of thinking that killing patients. Instead of healing them is compassionate a psychiatrist he wrote of well trained in exquisitely credential doctors who quote, turn their backs on the hippocratic oath and kill millions of useless people unborn children born malformed children all for the good of mankind with his literary prophecy that was written. In nineteen eighty seven is becoming reality today. Some form of assisted suicide is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia that number only GonNa grow unless we can somehow convince people what true compassion is and make the idea that assisted suicide is compassionate unthinkable. So come to what would you say dot org for this latest video on assisted suicide in EUBOEA equipped to make the case and also please share it with your pastor community leaders and legislators. It's literally life and death issue
White Nationalist vs. David C. Smalley
"Further ado join me in welcoming Gordon. Call? To The podcast Gordon thanks for joining me today men. Thank you for having me on. So you have a podcast, I can't pronounce it. I don't know why. To just sorry, go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. Tell you the name of myself? Yeah. Yeah. It's totally the name your podcast and and your your your reason for coming on today. So. I'm Gordon Call I'm the editor of American her dot Org. It's a blog website I host the podcast tune Americana which acting is you know the German word for attention right and then America Connor is a term that some people on. If you WANNA call what I am the right or the dissident right have used to refer to white Americans right It's based on the term for white South Africans Afrikaner. And the idea was to we needed a word to represent the unique white ethnicity of America, right because you know. I. My background I'm German and Irish right I'm a midwestern Mutt but I'm not German and I'm not Irish right. I if I went to either of those countries, I would not culturally fit in there. I am a unique. Example of my background and nation. But Our podcast acting Americana is kind of A. Talk Show I guess we go over different topics and news stories focused primarily on the Midwest and fly over country and we kind of examined them from a white nationalist or distant right pursue. Okay. So do you consider yourself a white supremacist? No. And it would probably depend on what your definition of white supremacist is I've a lot of times people throw that word around to me. What white supremacist connotes is this idea that you want white people to like rule over other races like I don't know like the antebellum south or something like to enslave black people or whatever. I have no interest in that quite frankly if I had my way, I would not live near anybody like I mean I have no desire to rule over other peoples I want to. But quite frankly, I want my people to have the right of self-determination and to be left alone. Okay. So in that in that situation, this is where. I think the the lines will be blurred is, let's say, let's say you had your way and let's say there is a section of America. Let's say thirteen states or fifteen states or whatever that is dedicated just a whites-only. When that became overpopulated and that white part of America wanted to. Expand. Its borders. What would happen I mean? You wouldn't just say well I respect that that's the line. That's the because we're segregated I'm not GonNa Cross it, and we wouldn't you try. Then at that point to take the land of people who weren't like you. I mean isn't that what's happening to Europe and America? Now I mean considering the huge population boom and Africa and the massive population and say China right white white people of European, descent and if you want to get into the what is white debate I'm not really interested in that everyone knows what a white person is. But white people make up like ten percent of the world's population. Total. And the only countries that are being flooded with immigrants of a different race are white countries. You don't see massive populations of Europeans going into say tenure, for example, that is viewed as colonization, which is viewed as an evil act by the left. But when it is done in white countries, it's viewed as progressive and diversity. Okay. So back to my point there's no. Okay. So if you want to ask like what like first of all this whole like ethno state thing I know that that was something that Richard Spencer brought up when he first came on the scene. Like. My thing is this. I whatever idea of an ethno state or whatever people have. You'RE NOT GONNA get that in the foreseeable future for one thing politicians don't even talk about white people in a positive light in America today. So the idea that you're going to have like a political platform of okay we're going to split the states up based on race is ridiculous because you know Donald trump the supposed-, White Supremacist Fascist Nazi president that we have or whatever. Right who all of his children are married to. Jews. Which you know somehow makes him a Nazi. I guess. Like even he the most he said about white people was believe early on in his campaign he mentioned the farm murders in South Africa and then I think like a few weeks ago on an interview he mentioned that white people are killed more often by police than black who which is statistically true obviously their arguments about per capita or whatever yeah which is which Is the entire point not something we could just brush off. I. Mean that is the entire point there. There are far more white people in the country which goes without saying that you know but the percentages are much higher if you're black for you to be shot. So that's why that's problematic is it states something that's a technical fact but missing the entire point of the movement. I mean I guess but I also like I gotta be honest there are tons and tons of political. Groups, NGOs advocacy organizations five Oh, one C. threes what have you dedicated to blacks and black interests just like there are plenty of them dedicated to Jews and Jewish interests. Or Indians right both like native American American Indians right and you know Hindu Indians Arabs what you there are no organizations at all that advocate for the interests of white. Americans.
"Been reading about forgiveness and I came across a simple but pretty powerful article on. The website from the Mayo Clinic Mayo Clinic Dot Org mark, and this is an article that I'll be sharing with you today it's titled Forgiveness letting go of Grudges and bitterness. So this is some insight to take into your meditation today. Holding. A grudge. Can impact you pretty dramatically both physically and emotionally. If you are unforgiving. A Ken. Bring anger and bitterness into your relationships, and also into most any of your experiences, they can always seem a little tinged by bitterness. You can become wrapped up. In, the wrong that was done to you that you have a hard time enjoying the president or it consumes you so much that. Even when you're having fun and you're getting together with people, a lot of times you bond over the issue of the wrong that has been done to you. You can become depressed and anxious. You can feel like your life lacks meaning or purpose. and. You can begin to lose your hope in life your spiritual beliefs. You can lose. Connection with those that mean most to you. Or feel detached from people. That you love because you're hurting so much. So wrapped up in. This bitterness. It's so pervasive around you. And I want to share with you a story that someone in my own spiritual group I meet with every morning. She is a former teacher for special needs children. And she talked about how there was a teacher that she used to work with in the classroom and this person would. Be So negative and so heavy that it was like a dark cloud in the classroom it affected every wine. And people tried to gloss over it and be positive but. She was really bitter. And on days when she was absent from school. It was like a breath of fresh air flowed in the classroom. And she had real sorrow in her life. Her brother. Was a missing person. And I don't believe they ever found him. So, you can imagine the grief and the sorrow. From having no closure over her brother. Suddenly Missing This was heartbreak in her life and it permeated everything and you can understand it. You can have compassion. For what she was going through. But imagine. How she cast such a cloud over so many others. She may have even traumatized many people. Because she was so negative. I'm sure that you have met people like that. So have you can have compassion for. Someone who is struggling they're had dark their negative they're angry. This can help you to soften. The impact of their anger and bitterness. And you might find that you may act in the same way. So. What happens to your mind and body when you forgive Well, there are many things as you can imagine, but I'll share. Some of the positive impacts when you forgive someone from this article. You begin to have healthier relationships. You Improve Your mental health. Anxiety and stress and hostility are lessened. Your blood pressure goes down you have fewer symptoms of depression and your immune system is stronger.
Armor on Butterfly Wings Protects Against Heavy Rain, Study Finds
"Apparently Butterfly Wings are built like armor to protect them against heavy rain a June study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences analyzed how water repellent properties on the butterfly's wings protect them against Raines impacts quoting dot org. The research showed how micro-scale bumps combined with a scale layer of wax shatter and spread these drops to protect fragile surfaces from physical damage and hyperthermic risk. Previous studies have looked at water hitting insects and plants at low impacts of noted, the liquids cleaning properties, but in nature, raindrops can fall at rates of up to ten meters per second. So this research examined how raindrops falling at high speeds interact with super hydrophobic natural surfaces and quotes. Senior Authors, Soon Juan young associate professor of Biological Environmental Engineering College of Agriculture and Life Sciences pointed out that raindrops are one of the biggest risks for butterflies getting hit by a raindrop for butterfly is like getting hit by a bowling ball for a human. For the study, the researchers placed the insects as well as samples of leaves and feathers on a table and released droplets of water from two meters above they recorded the experiment at several thousand frames per second so that they could watch back in ultra slow at which time they discovered that when the water hit the surface, it rippled and spread on the Nanos scale wax layer while the micro-scale bumps created holes in the droplet quoting again, consider the micro bumps as needles young said, if one dropped a balloon onto these needles, he said, then this balloon would break into smaller pieces. So the same thing happens as the raindrop hits and spreads end quotes. Not. Only does this reduce the impact force, but it also lowers the heat transfer from the cold drop, which enables the insects muscles to retain enough warmth to fly. Instead, he's like this aren't just interesting to learn more about butterflies and feel at ease knowing that they're relatively okay during big storms like today's but also these types of studies can inform consumer products. So called bio mimicry products in this field have already led to water resistant sprays for clothes and shoes, as well as the de Icing coatings for airplanes. There is so much weird and cool stuff from animals and. Nature. So thinking about how we can adapt some of it for humans is extra fascinating to me is all the other day that someone had redesigned the umbrella to open and close upside down so that you theoretically don't get as much water all over you. But what if we can coat on with some of this manno scale wax and micro bumps so that they repel water I mean that would be pretty cool.
A new hotline helps gamers with harassment and bullying
"Games have become a huge release for lots of people. Especially, the many who are entering their six month of some sort of corona virus lockdown in June sales. Video Games were up twenty six percent from a year ago. But online harassment has been a problem in gaming for years and in June dozens of women accused streamers, people who broadcast their gaming on twitter youtube of sexual harassment, abuse or assault. Now time video game activist is launching a hotline for people who play Games, or work in the games industry to get support, Anita? Sarkisian is executive, Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency I. think that's streaming is a new medium and that while it's the same old abuses of power, it might look a little bit different or it might play out a little bit differently. If this isn't a workplace issue, you don't have an hr to go to if you even trust your hr right like a lot of people don't rightfully. So and so what does it mean for a community to rally and to reckon with abuses that are happening how? How do we hold people accountable in a space that doesn't really have mechanisms for it, and I think those are some of the questions that were starting to ask and understand like is it that we just kicked people out of our communities? When enough? When when someone, who's brave enough to come forward tells her story of abuse. How do we put survivors victims I when we're talking about like, what does it mean to create safe communities and spaces? Is there also an aspect of that? That says, Hey, company, you need to be responsible for some of this as well and bringing them. You know what should have already been irrefutable data but view. Yes. This is this is that tension of we know that you've known that this has been going on, where have you been So we need to move out of this sort of reactionary space and into really reckoning with from the ground up, how are we building our workplaces in our communities to deal with the fact that these abuses can happen and to really center victims in that? Right. How do we deal with it so that we can try and minimize these issues from happening at all. Let's talk for a minute about the other side of the equation, talk to me about the unique issues that come up for people who make video games 'cause. I. Think maybe not everyone is familiar with how tough that industry can be in the games industry. We have really cute little word to describe overworking. And it's called crunch, and this is something that I think we see in tech in general. But specifically in Games, I don't think there's a separation between the issues around crunch and burn out and what we're talking about in regards to abuse because they come from the same root of not really trusting or caring for the humanity of your workers. We see that so much Especially, the really big game studios. Do you see you've been at this for a long time and I admire your strength because? Man Do you get beat up on the Internet? And probably in real life too. and I wonder do you see improvement? Do think things are getting any better? You think they'd have a canned response to its. At this point because I get asked a lot and the answer is complicated and I think that anyone who answers that in a way that isn't complicated isn't seeing the full picture. Right. There is something to just acknowledge here when you've been in these spaces, right at any activists that's been doing work for a long time is tired and it's a lot harder to give to be hopeful and to be optimistic and to see the bright side of things. So I just want to preface acknowledge that like we we all kind of need a rest it to be honest. and. It affects how we talk about and look at change. So. All of that is to say in some ways. Yes, and in some ways, no feminist frequency has been collecting data for the last five years and the the major game studios that announce games every year at e three, which is our biggest biggest gaming events. Now, that didn't happen this year, but they're still these announcements and what we found when we collected the data of the gender identity of the playable characters games is that over the last five years. We have seen almost no change. The lowest point was three percent and the highest point was nine percent and female characters as protagonists like that's five years of time that there's not much change there. Now, there's other change in the data, right? That shows that games that have a gender binary option that have character choice where it's an array of characters you can choose from that's increasing, but we're not seeing a statistical increase in the amount of female characters were seeing as protagonist. Another data point is that yeah, we're not seeing quite as. As much agree just sexism. It doesn't mean it doesn't still exist and it doesn't mean there's still a lot of work that needs to be done but I think we are seeing some shifts in the industry, and that brings us to what's next. Right. We need to be talking about the stories that are being told, the ways that mechanics are being designed, who's getting hired, who gets to tell those stories. There's still a lot a lot of work that needs needs to be done as we're moving towards creating a more inclusive games industry.

How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall
"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah. TOBBACO
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Viruses dont discriminate, but health care often does
"Tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, and some that might create even more inequality. A paper published in June. In the new, England Journal of Medicine, looked at how artificial intelligence is used to determine treatments and care. It found that many of the algorithms used in medicine use race as a variable. For example, many doctors use algorithms to estimate how well a patient's kidneys are functioning, because that's hard to test directly. Those algorithms use several factors including race to make these guesses Leo Eisenstein is a position and why you and Bellevue hospitals and one of the authors of the paper. We're seeing differences in outcomes not because. People who are black, have essentially different bodies, but their experience of being black in this country is essentially different, but encoded in the world of healthcare is the idea that black and brown bodies are different and as a result there's an excuse for why there are inequalities of health in the notion that these are produced naturally by racial differences Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who wrote a book about race in science and medicine, people will say black race predicts for some bad outcome when it's actually structural racism that's operating to put people in A. A vulnerable position where they are at risk Roberts talks about one study that examined why Black Women in Chicago started dying from breast cancer at a much higher rate than white women. Beginning in the nineteen ninety S, researchers concluded it was not because black women's health got worse. It was because there had been huge advances in breast, cancer, detection and treatment over those twenty years, and the best machines are located in private hospitals where more advantage people go Robert said that history makes her deeply worried about the distribution of life saving technology to treat or prevent covid nineteen. There are ways in which racism is built into the. He's rationing guidelines. which are based on a premise that scarce resources shouldn't be wasted on someone who might die at the hospital now because we live in a society that is structured by racism. This tool is systematically going to discriminate against black patients because they have already experienced a society that is set up in a way to produce lower life expectancy for them. Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. And now for some related links, there's more reading about systemic bias and medical treatment at our website marketplace. Tech Dot Org. The nonprofit science and Tech magazine dark has a long piece out this week. About how systemic bias is probably leading to disproportionately higher death rates among black and Brown people in the US, not just because of CO morbidity is associated with poverty or increased exposure to pollution say, but because researchers found that black and indigenous people in particular may also beginning turned away from hospitals or denied testing until it's too late. Yesterday we talked about vaccine innovations also Monday one of the leading. Vaccine Research Companies Madeira announced that it will start one of the biggest vaccine trial in the world, enrolling some thirty thousand people to test out its Kobe vaccine candidate. The maderno vaccine uses the method we talked about yesterday called M. R., n., A. The Viral Messenger that then uses the body's own cells to create antibodies to the fragment of viral particles.

Did has been boy getting close to a year and a half since we recorded that first episode about while friendly weddings and quick introduction for everybody, you are the endangered species coordinator for the population and Sustainability Program at the center for Biological Diversity. Collins Coordinator got the key word. Endangered Species Conduct's coordinator Oh I left that out. Thanks for the correction. You only get to coordinate the condom. Start it, I, misunderstanding people make the condoms are for the dangerous species sometimes, which is always fun correction to make Yup that's a good chuckle. We'll ask you for an update on that, but anyway Sarah wrote the wildlife friendly wedding guide that was published on Valentine's Day in two thousand and nineteen. You can still find it free at wildlife, friendly wedding, dot com, and you can order it if you absolutely need a hard copy I assume they can still order hardcopy if they want it. Does well, so we're glad to talk to you we wanted to. Circle back, because when you and I last spoke, you had yet to go through the experience of actually being in your own while life friendly wedding I assume it was pretty well friendly. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, I got married last year. I mean I've done most of the planning last February, but you know got finally do the think. Next month coming out with the wildlife, friendly divorce guide right. funnily enough people have asked about wildlife friendly funeral guide. There's sort of a connection there. It's just like a little less fun to plug, but there are people out there talking about that stuff which is. Yeah. We did a fairly recent episode of the growth. Busters podcast our friend in Boring Oregon to quit the expert on green funerals, very enlightening and was a great guest, so will include a Lincoln. The show notes since we've mentioned that. Yeah, you may WanNa. Go back and check that out. You can refer people to. Okay. But anyway, that's a lousy joke about divorce. so forgive me for that so before we start drilling you to find out how that went. And what new thoughts you have a really think we ought to just sort of mentioned that we planned on doing this episode months and months ago long before the covid nineteen pandemic, and we thought that kind of early and wedding season. Season it would be really good to kind of revisit and see how your wedding went. And what new advice you might have, because now so many weddings are being canceled or postponed, so if someone's listening and you're dealing with these stresses I. Just want you to know that our hearts really go out to. Your were sorry that that's getting messed up a little bit.

We want to hear from you. podcast at growth busters dot org, and isn't that Funny Sarah in that episode that we recorded over a year and a half ago. I kinda equipped and asks you.

Keep up on the wedding blogs. Just Kinda see where sustainability is being discussed, so yeah, it's definitely been huge thing and not even just the weddings. bachelorette's the showers virtual shower in a couple of weeks, which is goal is family. That's further way that I. I would probably go on to the person on the side is making a little more accessible kind of all these virtual events right like I can go to a virtual event for museum like many states away now, Emmy it. Hundred percent sucks. If you have to put this often, this was not your plan, but some interesting silver linings. You can
When Zina Speaks, You Listen
"Hi everyone welcome back to the body. Serve I'm James. I'm Jonathan. We, have something very exciting today. This is kind of a surprise episode for you all and it is something that we have never done. We have had players on the show before little cute, little ten fifteen minute segments, but we've never had a former player. Sit Down with us today. The Legend Zina garrison sat down with us for an extended chat about her career about being an African American woman and tennis about today's. Today's game and just took us through some of the highlights and some of the insight. She's gained in her illustrious career, on-court and off court. We've been hoping to get this interview for a while, but the timing really couldn't have been any better in doing it. No, because today when you're it well, it's yesterday for us today. When this episode is released will be the thirtieth anniversary to the day of ladies e making. Making the Wimbledon final in one thousand nine hundred beating Monica Selous snapping a S- Thirty six match win streak in the quarter-finals beating number one Steffi Graf in the semi-finals Steffi who had reached the previous thirteen Grand Slam finals, and then playing Martinez to love in the final. We talk about healthy Gibson. XENA had a personal relationship with her. One of the stories that you've probably heard a lot of recently. Is that out? Out the Gibson was in the locker room at Wimbledon right before that that final in one thousand, nine hundred, talking about champagne, maybe adding little pressure, but it's a amazing to see these two generations of pioneering players end up in the same police at that one moment. Zena is unfiltered. She tells you what she's thinking. She says on the show that I don't always talk often, but when I do you know it's important. Aside from her Wimbledon final which you've heard a lot about recently Zina. Garrison is an Olympic gold medalist in doubles with Pam. Shriver and one thousand, nine hundred eighty eight Seoul Games. She is the bronze medalist in singles at those same games. She made the quarterfinals or better at a major fifteen times. She won three grand. Slam mixed doubles titles to at Wimbledon One Australia fourteen time WTI tight list. She is one half of the first ever all. All black WTI final in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six ECKERD, open and the court. She was the USA team captain at the two thousand eight Olympics, she was fed cup. Coach for a number of years and the founder of the Zina Garrison. Academy, which has talked literally tens of thousands of children in Houston to play tennis. The work that Xena has done over the decades with her academy is so phenomenal, and as you can imagine, these are very. Times for all kinds of businesses let alone not for profits, and if you are able to please consider donating to Zina's academy. Zina garrison dot org and make a donation. To to help the kids in Houston continued to get such fabulous instruction free of charge, yet is important to mention perhaps as a preamble to this episode a prologue you can listen to our previous episode on Zina Garrison, which was entitled Wiggle at Legs Zeno, we do ask Xena how we got started in this interview. That's a little bit of supplemental listening. But for now here's our chat with Zina and we hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much. For chatting with us now, no, no problems China stat of this Houston Corona. We don't have it's been really bad here so I was just GonNa ask. How's everything going there? Now we're have had major spikes, so it's GonNa be interesting. So, you mostly staying inside Kinda minding your business. Yeah, not really bad allergies, too so they had the African dust here last week, so when trying to be a net again. Thanks for doing this just a little bit of a preamble as to how we were kinda hoping to do it. We're just GONNA. Run through a few things of your career and get your reaction to it possibly. A Tang into some of the stuff that we may have talked about on the previous that we did as well are you guys seem like you know me so well I. Do. Now Want WanNa. Hear it from you. You've been getting so much press this last month because of the thirtieth anniversary of your Wimbledon final. Did this catch you off guard? Yeah, did really kick me off guard for for two reasons first of all that it was. It's been thirty years like I. You know. It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on. Sounds pretty cool, so this is the first time then that you're just minding your own business, and you're just brought back into tennis because of your career because of social media. Yeah, it's not what ends one guy from England that Chris Ghosn. He always puts stats on there, and so you know sometimes he'll you know bring? He makes me I tell him all the time. He keeps me relevant, but he comes up with these stats out of nowhere in plug. This one just kind of took off so I think because they don't have one with him right now. It's you know it's. It's an people's line because this is the time so.

There's an article here. Do It yourself debt management. That's the one I just got done reading. There is links in there for that. They have a spreadsheet. Even download to help you. I highly recommend taking a look at that if you're struggling. Basically everything I've been telling you to do list out what your payments are. Be You know? Make the minimum that what they don't tell you is make the minimum payment of all your credit, their towns, a call your creditors and tried to negotiate a lower interest rate. My thoughts on that as he can give it a try and like they said he'd do you know the people that are the decision makers that can actually. Do that for you at you know at the different banks and credit card companies and whoever? I never done that. I, my opinion is you have enough income to qualify for that much debt? Now. If that's the case, you should have enough income to pay that debt. Black and white to May seem fairly simple. If you don't have enough income, why did they give you that credit card? Why did you qualify for that much debt? So that's my point so in with that thinking. Each should be able to recognize. Were you're over spending your money? Make adjustments on that have enough income assuming your income go down for some reason. Have enough income to pay your debt and still get by now. That's not saying that you didn't over finance your home. Say You. Want sixty percent of your monthly gross income as your house payment. You'RE GONNA. It's GonNa. Things are be tighter. If that's the case, it should be somewhere between fifteen to thirty five percent. The lower percentage of your gross income. That you make your home payment. The more leeway you gonNa have on other things in life, so don't over by your home don't. Buy Your car, so you gotTA. Keep your spending under control. And that's what the article is basically trying to tell you, you know if you go and do it yourself. You're going to know where you're spending. Your money is some things you may like some things you may dislike, but overall the article stated you will gain wisdom, and that so much truth to that. So that you know, check out your spreadsheet, it might be good. There's some other things in there. that. Be useful tools for yeah. I think you can do it I'm not a big person on the. Credit counselling even to nonprofits if they charge you fifty dollars a month and they say it's going to last five years. That's three thousand dollars. You paying them instead of reducing your debt. That's my point. And that may be. They'll make it eight years because they're looking to make money. To say they're nonprofit, but they still got bills to pay. So the longer they stretch it out for you the more money they're gonNA. Make or they really working in your best interest. At just my question, I don't know I would hope so, but you never know so be leery beware. And we talked about the debt. Cancellation Services Fifteen to twenty percent. Of what they cancel. It gets pretty expensive. Because remember, you're trying to pay off debt, you trying to reduce what you're spending money on so by paying these counseling agencies to help you. You're not really achieving your goal that you're that you're you're driving for. Now a quick word for sponsor High Satanic I said tonic is a vitamin. It's a way you take vitamins.

"At ease the M. C. foundation dot org and from the listeners of KQED FM San Francisco thank you we I. F. M. north highland Sacramento this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm ari Shapiro de funded the police is a call that swept through protests and into the broader conversation about American policing this week we're looking at what that would actually mean we've heard from a police chief who rebuilt his department from scratch in New Jersey and a group of social workers who respond to nine one one calls in Oregon today two people who spent years studying what it would mean to define the police first St Louis activist and lawyer Derek a per now she would like to abolish the police entirely and she told me the first step is changing how we think about stopping crime for example if someone sexually assault someone or someone kill someone because they're homophobic call the police officer is not going to stop people from becoming homophobic right you can only put that particular person in a cage in a box and present but it doesn't actually get to the root of the problem which is homophobia or toxic masculinity for example how do we transform society how do we respond to harm alternatively that doesn't create more harm well actually can stop harming save more lives so you're talking about investing in everything from education to mental health to homeless services can you really envision a point where those investments result in zero crimes zero need for law enforcement hello so two things one what we consider crime and harm first of all it is is a social construct we get to decide what that is part of the funding the police is changing the laws to decriminalize things that we now think of as criminal offenses absolutely just like marijuana so you know ten years ago it was illegal if you were in California and Colorado and the district of Columbia to use marijuana now is not those things I'll be decriminalized so that removes enforcement power from the police to stop and to be able to come into contact with the outside of that is we know across the country and across the world even places where there is less inequality places where there's a more egalitarian society does less harm and less crime so you don't have to worry about someone breaking into your house because there's no reason for someone to break into your house and take it doesn't matter one out of economic desperation what does it feel like after all the years that you spent thinking about this to see it really discussed on a national level in mainstream circles among people who never talked about this before yeah I think this is an incredible opportunity you know after law school I went and worked for using consent decree and an hour back coming from St Louis is where I am now and I'm more than I can stay in the Greenwood community organizing what does the best they can initially get was his body cameras right even though there's no evidence of body cameras stop police would be a violent that's the best we were hoping for and then for five years later for them to be imagining we don't have to call police because people outside who a lawyer we can use that money to create a jobs program to offer employment instead I think that should have been five years is remarkable the Florentine unity organizer Derek a print Allen St Louis thank you for talking with us of course thank you for having me Alex Vitali has been thinking about this too he recently wrote a book called the end of policing and so I asked him what specifically it would mean to de fund the police often these conversations tend to center around things like reducing our reliance on policing in schools getting police out of the mental health is not quit using police to manage homelessness and start actually trying to put people in housing the goal here is to both reduce the number of crises before they happen and also to create an infrastructure that allows clinicians to respond to these crises rather than armed police what about violent crimes rape murders police obviously don't have a sterling track record on solving those cases but they do seem to be important to voters what do you tell people about who's gonna respond to and handle those kinds of offenses we have community based anti violence initiatives that have shown real success in reducing homicides and shootings without relying on mass incarceration they only saw about half of homicides the majority of sexual assaults are never even reported to the police and this is only after the harms of already occurred we need to take as many steps as we can come up with to try to prevent these harm from happening in the first place and as we do that we can dial back our reliance on policing it's not about just you know getting rid of all police tomorrow when you're on your own in your vision of the future is there a police force at all and if so what does it look like well I think we don't know exactly the answer that question I think this is about a process of looking concrete what police do and trying to find alternatives that don't rely on violence as the mechanism for producing safety when we look at wealthy suburban communities we don't see police on every street corner managing the problems of those communities those people are able to manage their own affairs for the most part because they have resources and they have stability in their lives children have a drug problem they don't want the police to get involved they want to get high quality drug treatment or mental health counseling to deal with the reasons that addiction has become a problem in their lives well why can't we have that for all communities to create that stability so that policing doesn't present itself as the only possible option that's how it's Vitali professor of sociology at Brooklyn College and author of the book the end of policing thank you for talking with us my pleasure Arizona is one of five states that has seen its number of new cases of coronavirus more than doubled in the last two weeks today alone at the state reported thirteen hundred new cases been Giles of member station KJZZ reports that some health experts which the state would do more to halt the spread the state's largest hospital system warned last week that there I see you capacity is stretched thin as case numbers rice governor Doug Ducey's administration has repeatedly said they prepared for this and that case growth can be explained by an increase in testing state health director Dr Kerr crest it's not unexpected especially as we are targeting some of those higher more vulnerable areas including higher numbers of long term care higher numbers of correctional officers in prison so we are going to see changing numbers and we expect but a growing chorus of health officials say it's not just that the sheer number of cases in Arizona is rising marta was insta at the Duke Margolis center for health policy in DC says the share of those tested for the corona virus who came back positive is also climbing the fact that the positivity rate in our yard increasing the jets that there's more to it than just having more for governor Ducey let his stay at home order expire on may fifteenth tests came back positive about five percent of the time two weeks later twelve percent of those tested for coronavirus were positive will humble the state's former health director says Ducey squandered an opportunity to maintain Arizona's positive gains by recommending not requiring social distancing after his stay at home order expired I think what's happened since then is because there was no compliance and enforcement provision built into the post stay at home order executive order behavior split off with businesses and with people and there's no denying what we're seeing in the data which is that there's a pretty significant rebound in you know in new cases humble said it's not too late to a reverse Arizona's troubling trends he said the governorships you a new executive

"Through your website at Aclu Dot Org. If you suddenly lose that domain name. Your Organization is at least temporarily pretty crippled. That's the kind of thing that we should be protecting against the kind of negative implication. Shen of an untrustworthy administrator. And so the question of whether the dot org registries vulnerable to being taken over by somebody who doesn't have those interests in mind or wants to use them him. Further political or economic other purposes is quite a serious issue and I wanted to say could they also just charge more. Yeah I mean candidly handedly. That's the least of my concerns. I mean like there is in fact a marketplace for domain names and the difference between nine dollars a year and twelve dollars a year even twenty dollars. A year is to me. That's not the top issue. I know the people talk about that. But price increases I think is less important to the noncommercial community at least to my understanding of their interests than fears about losing to May names based on you know acts of speech. Let's say but my point though. Is that the policy. Should be made through a process process that is capable of understanding and then vindicating the interests of the community to be served a private company make some short term commitments But you don't and what's GonNa Happen in the future so it's really what's really the concern here is that this is a one year old private equity firm. You're worried about the trustworthiness of of really any unproven group. nope well there's two functions to keep in mind here. One is the setting of policies and the other is the technical operations of the registry. What seems to be happening in this transaction one is that we are eliminating the organization that used to be the policy overseer from policy oversight and then entrusting all of that function to this new organization? TATION which will both substitute for that policy oversight and also operate the registry as a technical matter. That's the real concern is that there's no mechanism that that I view as trustworthy whereby the kind of like broad interests instability and insulation from political interference and so forth can be achieved that's Andrew McLaughlin. One of the original members of I can and I can't hold us. It would decide whether to approve the sale of dot org by February seventeenth and now for some related links we asked ethos capital for a statement and the company said it plans to keep the same team in place to manage the dot org domain going forward it also said it would make pricing guidelines for dot org available and commit to them as has part of the sale eat those also said it is committed to freedom of expression upholding human rights and free speech on the DOT org domain. You can read more about the proposed sale in a blog post by the Internet society. That is at our website marketplace tech DOT ORG and it statement to us. I can't also said that it would not seek any public comment about the proposed acquisition between now and February seventeenth. But that I can is quote well L.

Details tells last week about its annual meetings coming up in La later this week but didn't mention anything about the dot org discussion or sale despite it being one of the foundational domains on the Internet. Msa Day I can get a letter from several members of Congress including the Internet. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon Oregon and Presidential Hopeful Elizabeth Warren highlighting concerns about the sale.
