Good morning. Morning, Gregory. Uh, so I suspect you were both listening in as we were talking with both representative wound Representative Middleton and also Dr Dixon about the Texas House Democrats walk out and I guess where I want to start with the two of you is. How does this end? Brandon. Any ideas it end. I think badly for probably both groups. This is made everybody look a little bit foolish. I think Republicans have hope to get a lot done. They may have bitten off more than they could chew, and now they're having to face these sorts of consequences for Democrats. They're going to get a lot of pushback from their district on these issues are going to get pressure to get back to work as a representative, Middleton said. So I think both sides are going to get a lot of slings and arrows on this. The way that these events in the past has been through a negotiated settlement. There's been enough goodwill in the chamber. To be able to encourage the way were members to come back. If sometimes it's about just the need to work and move through differences, or maybe their specific policy objectives that they can agree on. It sounds like there's a compromise that could be had here in our Republicans obviously have drawn a line in the sand Democrats or staying away until they get better news, But I think ultimately it's going to have to end with some kind of compromise Mark What do you think chance for compromise in this I think either compromise or a tacit surrender by Democrats and maybe perhaps in the middle there. So when Democrats gotten that they had several goals..

"Some of those are way now at talk at Houston matters dot org. First, Though the Texas House Democrats walk out over election bills has entered its second day in a few minutes, we'll check in with Houston area Democratic representative Gene Wu and Galveston Republican representative Maze Middleton. Let's begin, though, with doctor James Dixon, pastor at the Community of Faith, Church and President of the Houston NAACP. Chapter, Dr Dixon. Good Morning. Good Morning. Great great to be with you first. What's your take on the Texas House Democrats decision to break Quorum and in many cases had to Washington they had no other choice. The reality is when you feel like the constitution has been violated. Without any, uh, Rationale other than to support the basis of a massive voter fraud claim that never happened. And you see that what's happened to your constituents and all of all of Texas is completely unfair, Unjust and it's a power grab. They just had no choice. Uh and so at demand their courage. And we live in a nation where peaceful civil protest is a part of our history. I think that the exercise the right. One aspect of these election bills is the idea of banning drive through voting, which was, of course, very popular here back in November at the height of the pandemic, the reason cited often for the band and this is an argument that governor has made is that It creates an environment that can lack privacy and create potential for coercion in particular, when more than one voter is in the same vehicle. Some have raised objections over the idea of churchgoers piled into cars and vans and buses being influenced all the way up to where they would vote. Do you see that as a valid argument? I think that is such a lame argument. To be honest with you. I mean, If I'm in the car with my friends and my friends and act discussing who to vote for that is our privacy. That's our private conversation. We and we are certainly should be welcome to have that. I think that argument is completely lame and insufficient for the claim to be supported. The reality is With this is not just voted. Integrity is about a lack of integrity on the part of those who support these bills. Uh, one person carrying four people to the polls to vote. Is not a violation of the law..

I'm craig cohen. We continue our discussion about day. Two of the state house democrats walkout from the special session as well as other developments in politics in this week's political roundup joining us today. Mark jones political science fellow at rice university's baker institute for public policy and brandon rotting house professor of political science at the university of houston and co host of news. Eighty eight sevens party politics program. Gentlemen good morning So i i suspect you were both listening in. We were talking with both representative wound representative middleton and also dr dixon about the texas house. Democrats walk out. And i guess where i want to start with. The two of you is. How does this end brandon. Any ideas it ends. I think badly for probably both groups. This is made everybody look a little bit foolish. Republicans hoped to get a lot done. They may have bitten off more than he could chew. And now they're having to face these sorts of consequences for democrats. They're gonna get a lot of pushback from their district on these issues are gonna get pressure to get back to work. As the eruption middleton said so i think both sides are going to get a lot of slings and arrows on this the way that these events in the past has been through negotiated settlement. There's been enough goodwill in the chamber to be able to encourage the were members to come back if sometimes it's about just the need to work in move through differences or maybe there specific policy objectives that they can agree on it. Sounds like there's a compromise that could be had here in republicans obviously drawn a line in the sand. Democrats are staying away until they get a better news. But i think ultimately it's going to have to end with some kind of compromise mark. What do you think. Chance for compromise in this i think either. A compromise or tacit surrender by democrats may perhaps in the middle there so when democrats this. They had several goals. What is to china national spotlight on texas. They've succeeded another was to raise money for both the current Democratic party as well as the twenty two campaign By that and then a third would be to try to push the national congress Senate to pass the four. The people active national level electoral form. They're gonna fail later. And then the final would be extracted. Some concessions from texas republicans on the election reform legislation. And as i think brandon. The there's probably gonna be some movement bear. So i would suspect that while they may stay out for this special session that ends on august. Six great app is going to call. One is going to start on august. Seventh and i would hope that they will return then. A republicans democrats can work out their differences pass a legislative a budget for the legislature which otherwise will go unfunded as of september first. And maybe get a little other business done..

It's largest intracellular parasites discussion today centers on vertical farming which is a concept that Dick and his students came up with in nineteen ninety nine and when his book vertical farms I feeding the world in the twenty first century came out in twenty ten there were no vertical farms in the world today there are vertical farms throughout the US and around the globe but before we get to part two you of our interview with Dick.

Some talk listeners have helped sock become such a great success okay and now unto today's interview with Dixon diplomacy extended stem talk stem talk. I WANNA get to vertical farming in twenty ten. You wrote a book that I in fact have called the vertical farm feeding the world in the twenty first century and at that time there were no vertical farms and by vertical farms a took it that you meant I think think you said this a building taller than single story where people can grow their food and this seemed like a crazy idea. I think in twenty ten but this is catching on and are springing up all around. I wonder if you could just tell us a little bit about this idea that you had and how you see going forward. I'm happy to to make I can make a long story short in this case in two thousand in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven excuse me was the last year that was funded from the National Institutes of health. Although having geographic twenty seven consecutive years is an honor and a privilege That's a good. I wish that I could have had it for another three years because I really had a lot of other things to do. I wanted to get to but I never did get to them. So that point I was in transition between now. What do I do and so it occurred to me that I love teaching. I love relating being stories so went on ages do similar teaching I to sort of get by head back in the game so to speak and so I began to teach a course at these public health called medical ecology. I I wanted to teach something ecological and I wanted to bring some of these stories that have been relenting here to to them as well and to teach them that public health is not the the science of separating humans from nature but rather allowing us to live together with nature in harmony in a way that doesn't cause disease right so oh that's a difficult concept so let's talk about ecology I then and so I use the word medical because I wanted to attract people from the Medical Center it was Kinda. Come on on a little bit of a Charlatan approach to the naming of the course but nonetheless I got some very interesting soons and in fact the first year I got seven committed students and so that really wanted to know more about ecology and the ecological aspect of ecology so I began by going through the litany of the things that if you damage this this is what happens to advantage that this is what happens about halfway through they got very depressed because they realized that no matter which way you look we're damaging the earth in every every direction you can think of and as a result more and more at risk from various disease entities both infectious and uninfected so I said well that's the way it'll real girls works but what else would you like to know remember. This is their money their time but I said what. What issue do you think would be important to work on? That might have some ability to cataract. Some of this negativism sought to come back to me and they all came back and they said the same thing. I think you know I think we should work on something to do with food. I said Great. That's a great idea. what did you have in mind and I said well we think that if we put rooftop gardens on the buildings buildings of New York that could accommodate them that we could probably produce a lot of food and we could probably feed people that are not being fed properly. Now I said Great. That's that's a wonderful project. I'm glad to abandon my lecture series and to support you in this but you have to do the science and they looked into said what science well. You have to tell me how many rooftops I and you have to tell me how big they are. You have to tell me what kind of crops you're going to grow and you have to tell me how many people you WanNa feed. You have to tell me how many calories per person you you need to feed them in order to make this idea work so oh they loved it that that gave them direction and they went off and did some research and I guided them through getting in some of the literature together at NASA had a lot of information on us too and we came back at the end of the year and they said well. We've determined that in Manhattan there's X. Amount of land we raised the most energetic crop which turns out to be rice provide we could feed two percent of Manhattan and it looked almost started to cry. You know there's no matter which way we look this is not gonNa work and so we're very disappointed and that's when I said I said wait a minute. Wait a minute. You did a good job. You actually got the answer we're looking for. I just wasn't the answer you wanted but you did the science and in Newton and doing the science it doesn't matter what what the answer is. It matters that that's the right answer. I said what if you took the rooftop garden idea and moved it in the building itself and I got a six story walkup got got six floors now a lot of abandoned apartment houses in New York City. We could we convert them to these firms that you could have a knowledge that you could crazy food all year and they looked at me and say we can actually do that. And of course I said you could but they didn't notice that my nose was growing longer and longer as is talking because I had no idea that you could do that but I was gonNA. Tell him no. You can't do that either so I said yes. Of course you can do that. So then of course I went home that summer and my wife and I begin to talk about this and the next year actually offered this as as a project for the next year's class in the same course and they gladly took it and now there were twelve students and they worked out the dynamics of a building that was half a city block in footprint fifty stories tall that could produce enough food various kinds to feed fifty thousand people. I said those buildings. Would you need in order to feed the entire eight million people in New York. That's not that many buildings folks. That's less than two hundred buildings when you consider New York City has more than a million buildings and you could feed all these wow that's so the next year we got into more details in the next year and finally had ten ten years worth of that class that that's the point when I decided to sit down and write the book but you'll notice in the book. It was hard cover book that came out I there were no pictures of vertical article farms because there weren't any the next year period repress picked up the contract and wanted to produce a soft cover version of the book though as you would have a wider distribution so they did and at that point there were three and they're in the soft cover book. You can see them that was in two thousand eleven so from two two thousand and eleven two thousand nineteen. The number of vertical farms went from three to I haven't got faintest idea of how many there I actually actually don't know. There are seems to be quite a few there are and I can tell you the country with the most is Japan and there was a good reason for that because they had this horrible Salami back in two thousand eleven and they lost five percent of their farmland one hour when the tidal wave came over the the break wall aw in the Sendai and trashed all the farmland and Sendai. They lost five percent. Yeah makes sense and land is valuable in Japan Yankus yeah exactly clear-eyed exactly so so then other countries picked up on this idea Taiwan and Singapore and China and and you're right. You're absolutely right. You can't go anyplace now. No not find some activity with regards to forming and it's it's a miracle I would say that a good idea it's become a great idea because people with money and and desire and understanding decided to do it and I can't take credit for that they they they have to take the credit for that speaking of them popping up everywhere as we discussed custer earlier. Nancy and I are building a house like an hour south of Jackson. Hole Jackson is you know has grown season of maybe three or four months and ended trucks in over steep mountain passes the majority of its produce which is is problematic there and there's now a vertical farm right downtown downtown. That's located on city owned property. It sort of an infill lot that the city could really use for anything it's connected to a big parking gene garage and now there's a quite a nice vertical farm that produces the equivalent of ten acres they say.

This is I on Washington Felix statewide news programs produced in Washington DC every week I on Washington street to Capitol Hill for discussion with Nevada's delegation and other leaders out the federal matters that matter to you today's topic why Nevada's you in Nevada's, elderly or stopping suicide statistics and what can be done to reverse this irreversible decision. My special guest today's miss Ellen Shannon of the American Foundation for suicide prevention, thanks so much for being here today on this topic. Thank you so much for having me. So here's the good news last June. The centers for disease control released a report that Nevada is the only state in the nation where suicide is down. But be that as it may the state does rank fifth in the nation and for two age groups things. Remain, especially troubling and today on Washington. We're going to look at suicide rates among the Vada, youth, and Nevada. Elderly will learn why these two groups might be particularly vulnerable will find out what to do. If you think your loved one is contemplating ending his or her life, and we'll ask my guess what needs to be done on the hill. And in the state to turn things around now last winter, Dr Leslie Dixon, the head of the Nevada psychiatric association led a presentation for doctors and other medical personnel called suicide prevention how to save a life the seminar was very timely. The Las Vegas business press reported last February. That Nevada suicide rate has jumped to number five in the nation, that is the highest level since the late nineteen ninety s so Dr Dixon other prevention advocates are urging Nevada medical professionals to get out front in recognizing suicidal, tendencies impatience, and hopefully getting them the help they need before they end their life. Lives. Doctor vixen session address, nearly one hundred doctors and others and health care on several hypothetical situations. They may encounter when dealing with suicidal individuals as well as discussions around possible outcomes, and practices. Now, miss Shannon first of all, welcomed island, Washington. You know, we we've covered suicide as I told you when we were preparing for today, we've covered it many times from many angles on my program, but the rates among Nevada youth, and elderly are so troublesome than I thought it was important that we address this again, and to have you on to talk about this. So we'll get to those groups, what's being done, and then what needs to be done later. But I do wanna look at the growing focus on doctors to notice, and hopefully prevent suicide. That is good news for you. I know that it, it really part of your reach out, isn't it with your group? Absolutely. In fact, the American Foundation for suicide prevention has initiative call. Project twenty twenty-five. And with that we've identified some of the key ways in which we believe that if we focus, our attention, we can reduce the suicide rates in the United States and beyond the fastest in the shortest amount of time. And one of those ways is actually, to work with emergency systems, and healthcare professionals in order to increase regulate increase education on how to spot the signs and their patients. But also to give them adequate, follow up care to make sure that if they are showing signs that they don't fall through the cracks of the system that we get them continued support, Dr Dixon seminar was really timely, especially regarding the two groups, we're going to get to later and to really addressing the group to the, you know, the health care leaders themselves, your, your mission statement says that you focus on evaluating and disseminating accurate information about suicidal behaviors to the public and certainly that includes those kind of at the front line on this, which are the, the medical another health. Professionals. Absolutely. Absolutely want me know that we can save lives, their education, and that's working with, you know, educating healthcare professionals mental healthcare professionals, as well as physical health often those are the people that are, are dealing with these individuals, and maybe have kind of gotten clues from them out and be followed up on. Yeah. We believe that it's key that, for instance, let's say you go to your primary care physician as many of us do. And if you were to go into your primary care physician for routine exhibit, let's say you are exhibiting, some signs, or maybe there is some kind of survey can take while you're in there that would give your primary care physician a clue about your mental condition. And so if we can start identifying during routine health, checkups because let's face it, this is a health condition just like any other. So we can identify that early intake early interventions and provide adequate care. We know that we can save lives. Absolutely. You know, I saw quote from Dr Dixon saying that interventions by mental health prevent profession. Are very important. But that many suicidal individuals never see therapist. And that's why people like her, and you I know stress the importance of all people who interact with a suicidal person knowing how to help. Right. It's not just those medical professionals, we're talking about. But every average Joe, I know how to recognize this and help we at the American Foundation for suicide prevention. We're trying to create a culture that is smart about mental health, and that's from everything about teaching everyday people like you and me how to spot the signs who's it increased risk for suicide. What can we do to reach out and have a meaningful conversation with someone worried about and know what resources are available in our community to help those struggling, and, you know, it's more and more important. We're, we're almost at a time in this this segment, but I, I wanted to touch on these horrible statistics that really led to me doing another show on this. These are from twenty fifteen. They're the most recent from the American Association of suicide. Allergy Nevada had six. Six hundred fifty suicides just under two a day in two thousand fifteen and that is Nevada's highest rate since nineteen Ninety-seven. This is a horrible situation. That's not going away or getting that much. Unfortunately, suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States and is the only leading cause of death. That is on the rise. Hope we know it is preventable. And there are steps that we can take. And we're going to we're going to.

"There was no intent to kill. I know that with all my heart. He's harmless. But in courtroom, two of the Lubbock county courthouse the prosecution paints a far different picture of activity. Somebody who was era against somebody using shepherd as a pawn to keep up with prochell, Dr Sony's relationship and goodness knows what else? This is the story of this is vengeance. This is revenge. This pride. One of the big pieces of evidence that love of prosecutors used against Dixon was this twenty two caliber pistol, which David Shepherd told police that he used to shoot Dr Sonya at prosecutors presented evidence that the gun that was used kill. Dr Sonia was given to him by Dr Dixon, circumstantial evidence. Pretty strong stuff. David Shepherd tells us that a told Dixon I have a gun in Dixon says don't worry about. I got the cover. I have a gun. He says it belongs to my brother gave it's clean. Police divers were seen pulling something from the lake shepherd was on hand to point police to areas in the lake to search. They said thrown the gun into a lake Amarillo behind Dr Dixon's office. Also, prosecutors have a wealth of text messages between Sheppard Dixon, when Sheppard was stalking Schettino. And some. When he was arrested. The swat guys told me it actually jumped into swimming pool and tried to ruin the phone. The problem was the man had plugged the phone in backed it up to his computer. So all of the stuff, they he thought was not going to get him in trouble was backed up to computer. Prosecutors here are saying that they found text messages from Dixon shepherd urging shepherd to kill. We're talking text messages like go get him with an spur get her done and put it on. If you look at the text messages to put it on him. You know, those types of things there one aimed at my mind what they were talking about real eyebrow. Raiser is how the payoff supposedly happened to the alleged hitman here, three silver bars and boxes cigars. It's hard to find good Cuban cigar. But this over bars are worse. Some nine thousand dollars. According to prosecutors, one of which was sold to this pawnshop and emerald Texas before them are and to after the murder sold by none other. What was he like to your member? Any of his affect pave is pretty good SAS guy seemed. Just like a normal Gada me. I didn't notice anything different about him in terms of demeanor. He didn't strike you one way or the other. It sounds like not at all. So he sold you something just like this. Yes. Having racing where he leaves a couple of days later on the front page of the paper. Right. Yeah. It was kind of Mitchell shock. I mean, I've just blown away all the evidence. The prosecutors have against Mike Dixon, strong, but their primary piece of their case his Dave shepherd. He pleaded guilty for a life sentence with no opportunity for parole at so after the death penalty was taken off the table. That's Dave shepherd testified gets sold drinking buddy, Mike Dixon. It seemed like a slam dunk for prosecutors. They had the man who admitted to killing Dr Jones as a witness. He had a chance to get up. There firm. His story. Point to that guy is person who paid him to kill my dad and ended all but what he ends up doing is an absolute shock prosecutors. And to the family of the victim store witness was about the poor wealth in the prosecution's. Shocking. Testimony today at the capital murder trial for emerald Dr Thomas Dixon, the prosecution's case against very strong. You've got a payoff to alleged hitman got a murder weapon. The circumstantial case here seems to have a lot of elements that would favor the prosecution everything that the prosecution laid on the table was countered by the defense, including shepherds access to the gun. See the defense claim that Shepard stole the going from Mike Dixon's house and Frank sellers. One of the defense attorneys showed me wear t thoughts Shepard stole that going from the came in here. They're picking up to smoke and shepherd opens this drawer here, and it's a gun..
