Sgt. John Mattingly Describes the Details of the Breonna Taylor Raid
"Written a book that is 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of the Brianna Taylor raid. The mainstream legacy line media would say that this was a no knock warrant. You guys burst in, you started firing and this woman was killed in her sleep or in her bed. When you tell us who Kenneth walker is and who Brianna Taylor was. Okay, Kenneth walker was Brianna's current boyfriend. Now the guy that she was associated with in this narcotics ring's name is JaMarcus clever. And that's an ex-boyfriend and on and off boyfriend that she still had very close ties to. Matter of fact, just in January 2 months prior to this incident, she had bailed him out of jail for the same thing drugs and guns that used her address for that. He used it that her address for his license for his registration of his vehicle for his phone service for his bank account. So everything tied those two together. However, she was dating Kenneth walker at the time. And he happened to be at her house that night. We didn't know he was there when we were going the Intel we had was very limited, and it said that they thought she was going to be alone. Breonna Taylor was she did work in the hospital's part time. They keep saying she was a nurse. She went to nurse. She was a, she had been certified as an EMT in early or late 2015. She only did that for 5 months and was fired by the city of Louisville with a no rehire, claws in there because a lot of rumors going around. I can't justify those rumors, so I won't, I won't say when we requested the information for her file, they refused to give it because they said they didn't want to disparage her name. All the while they threw us under the bus every chance they got. We're not going to talk about certain accusations. Let's just say, was it rumors of criminality or something she did inappropriately related to possible crimes? Well, all the guys I know that are taught in the EMS, even some of the higher ups say that there was accusations of selling narcotics from the ambulance. Wow. Or maybe transport them to JaMarcus Glover. But again, those are unsubstantiated rumors and I hate because of the way I've been treated for the last two years. I hate to paint somebody in that picture.

Well, Kenosha, my best friend Dominic lives there. My dad lives here. My entire family pretty much lives there.

John Zmirak: Kyle Rittenhouse Is a Good Samaritan
"And furthermore, I don't think he's a misguided young foolish young man as David French of national review dismissed Kyle rittenhouse. I think he's a hero. I think he's a good citizen. He's a good Samaritan. Think about the story of the good Samaritan. A man is robbed and beaten and left on the side of the road. Two rather snooty, uptight, self righteous people. One of them a priest and one of them a levite passing by, they don't touch him because they don't want to become ritually impure by touching his blood. A Samaritan, which to the Jews at the time when Jesus was giving the parable, that was like a heretic, that would be like if you were talking to Southern Baptist mentioning a Mormon, okay? The samaritans sees the man goes in tens his wounds of pays for him at the end and takes care of him. Kyle rittenhouse saw that the police and the government were not enforcing Law & Order on the streets of a nearby city where his father lives and I think one of his brothers. It's like hometown man. So he went there as an volunteer EMT. He was handing out water bottles to Black Lives Matter protesters. He was handing out water cops. The cops thanked him for being there. Then a mob of psychopathic Marxist criminals, also known as antifa. Starts targeting the people who are trying to help patrol and keep businesses, small businesses, the backbone of America from getting burned down from getting looted Kyle rittenhouse was being good Samaritan trying to help total strangers preserve their small
We Need To Honor America’s First Responders
"Can you also talk about just first responders in general on nine eleven as this episode airs this day where remembering people that went into the conflict and went into the fire and went into try and sacrifice themselves for a broader purpose. That kind of commitment to duty which i feel. We're losing in our country right now. Can you talk about that in your own personal life and how that's a value you and your at your company really tried to embody Nine eleven in the actual day has burned into my mental psyche as it has with millions of other people as a medic and the training that we've gone through and i correlate it back with judy of august october. Twenty seventeen in las vegas. Your training kicks in and the firefighters. That i know that i that i revere and and it's not just firefighters. It's all of our law enforcement my my belief on this and the little things that drives minute in coffee is these are the true minute. These are the true american heroes that have sacrificed so much per. so many. How many other professions besides our military and our first responders actively put that uniform on and go out and put themselves into harm way arms. They and sacrifice what what other people can't even fathom in me. That is what the enemy of a minute then. It's whether we're standing up and fighting the tyrants seventy three seventy four seventy five seventeen seventy sex or modern day blazing into that fire and rescue those children or or just coming up and within the law enforcement end the medic community and i think the first responded community is getting a bad rap.

"Be kind give them a day or so to decompress and you know stop sending emails. Stop calling them. Give them a dare to off and let them regroup and when they're ready to get back into the swing of things let him because it can be. It can be very very tiring very stressful. And every one of us. And i don't care you know who it is. Everybody in everybody who's listening to this. Podcast has something going on besides work and we have to deal with those stressors as well so while they're covering these high intensity stories we're also thinking about things at our own home in our own life and we need to take that into consideration as well last year in twenty twenty with all of the sort of increased coverage that we do at my job because of cove nineteen and the demonstrations and the election. I think the smartest thing that our company did was they gave us unlimited comp time and it works well i think in the psychology of journalists because the journalists is still going to keep coming back to their job but if they know that they have the ability to you know yeah maybe i really do need a couple of days off. Maybe i need a week off in the midst of that. If you're worrying about well. I'm not going to be. We'll have enough time to take off around christmas so having that flexibility. It's just a wonderful wonderful thing and asking for them off. Should not be punished or the if you do at this somehow. You're letting somebody down when actually what you're really doing is you're you're ultimately gonna make yourself a better mentally. You know mentally fit and better able to do your job. Is there any any other advice you would give to somebody else. Who wants to become a photo journalist. Advice to becoming a photo journalist i i was never really you know having some some photography courses. Yeah that was. That was pretty much it but i learned it on the job and i sort of did it in a roundabout way that maybe not many people get into the industry. This way i think probably the best advice is and for anybody regardless of whatever profession it is and certainly journalism but you know be true to yourself and you know you're going to see and you're going to potentially witness some some things that are not fun and take care of yourself. Take care of your co workers. Those are bonds that you're going to have for a very long time. Take care of each other. I and then when you can do that you're going to tell an awesome story because you're going to be ready to do it..

"Broken down into different modular kits that i would bring or i could bring on storm coverage or for that matter any type of news assignment. So that's sort of sort of where that came from. And i just basically went through the list and i talked about why there's different items you know for. Why did that item is included on my list. And why it's useful one of the things that i have in my go box when i go to an away game and i have to be fly somewhere. Orson extended drive. Is i keep a socket set in my storm cat. what a lot of people sockets what's this year for. You're gonna like work on your car or something. I'm a huge fan of using parking garages parking for storm coverage because they're poured concrete are super durable. And it allows me to drive my vehicle inside with all my gear inside and not hoping it upstairs that allows me to get to an elevated position. Where hopefully i can see. you know. i have a good vantage point. So it's easy to get in but sometimes when the power goes out it's a little tricky to get that fiberglass arm up so i can get out of the parking garage and the sock it said. Is there so. I can take the arm off the parking garage. It sounds kind of crazy. But you know it's one of those things that over the years. Oh wow you know. I really could use a. I had a wrench in there before. And after the first time i had to do that with a leatherman or something like that. It was a bit tricky. So i went and i bought a socket set out that now resides inside my my box for for deployment. Yeah i need. Take my car parts so i can get it into the building. You're working your way down that that line. that's amazing. I it just shows to go the more you get into it the more things you learn the and having those types of tips things that would necessarily occur to people or do you have any other ones that you could share. Well i think one of the biggest ones is. We're going to go into a situation that that we were expecting to see devastation..

"You know that You really shouldn't be waiting around you barefoot or in flip flops or something like that and flood water because floodwater contains all sorts of nasty bacteria from decomposing animals dead things to raw sewage to potentially fuel oil all sorts of stuff. So sometimes it's just it's it's safety but it's also some education that takes place so safety is always a concern and it should always be concerned and it is always it is always on my mind and i'm glad you brought up the topic of situational awareness. I just read like a police report around in. Ap video journalist who was confronted by protesters outside of the us capital non january six but in one of the demonstrations following the election. And it's really kind of chilling because the protesters are really up in his grill and he was doing what he could to you know. Take himself out of that situation and they they continue to pursue him you know. Has anybody ever confronted you or challenged you. Yeah i mean it happens. All the time and situational awareness is a skill. It's not some spy. Jason bourne spy trickery. The idea of situational awareness. Kind of reminding yourself or trying to be more aware of the things that are happening around you being more observant so when you see something that seems out of place you can make a decision about what you're going to do next the ideas to be one step ahead of somebody who may be wants to do you harm and yet it happens. That situation has happened to be. You know a lot of times. Like i said before i drive a vehicle with with my stations name on it. It's wrapped all around the vehicle and you know sometimes it's great sometimes. It's not more so not. I could be sitting at the traffic light waiting to make a turn and somebody in the car next to me to to their horn and flips me the bird. It could be something. Benign like that or it could be. It's crazy at times. it could be you know. I stopped at a convenience store to get a to get a drink or something like that. And i'm walking back to the car and somebody's yelling at me accusing me of you. Know of being fake news so yeah so it. It does happen. I mean we just saw a few days ago. I believe it was the crew covering the hurricane. I believe it was msnbc where somebody drove their pickup truck. Up there in the middle of a live shot drove the pickup truck up and sorta of jogged up to their live live shot location and was confronting these people while they're on the air and you know situation. Awareness is huge. The ideas to be proactive versus being reactive. You see something you can maybe move away from it or try to get out of that. Get out of that situation before it occurs. Yeah and i could see you. You know if you're wearing a you know some sort of identification and you certainly have you have a camera that you got on your shoulder so people know who you are and what you're there for and the fact that you've got to keep your focus on your job but at the same time. Try to be aware of everything that's going on around you and i'm glad you're thinking about the guy covering the hurricane that was. I don't know how i would've reacted in that. I thought he did a really smart thing. He you know. He turned the camera away from the the individual and continued on as best as he could anyway. The reason we reached out to you is. I was looking on twitter the other day and you had done a whole list of tips for journalists in your twitter feed for you know how to cover a hurricane.

In fact around twenty percent of the nation's gross domestic product comes from foreign visitors though the population numbers just ten million people dominicans. Welcome more than six million vacationers every year. Almost half of them come from the united states in two thousand eighteen. A disturbing trend began among the tourists. One that would go unnoticed for almost a year. Someone or something was killing them in june that year a fifty one year old. Pennsylvania resident named yvette monet export on her first vacation in years. Yvette was excited to finally relax at the luxurious by principal resort in punta cana. Little did she know it would be her final holiday. One evening event in her fiance had a drink from their room's minibar before going to bed in the middle of the night her partner hurting gurgling sound thinking nothing of it he turned over and went back to sleep but when he woke he that was dead. Yvette was just the first in a string of tragedies. The following month of forty five year old man named david harrison traveled to the dominican with his wife. Dawn they state at a different resort. But like yvette. David seemingly had a target on his back one day. He returned from snorkeling saying he felt unwell after he dawn fell asleep. The unthinkable happened. David woke in a cold sweat. Unable to move his wife tried to get help but it was too late. David had suffered a heart attack which caused his lungs to fill with fluids. I condition known as pulmonary dima.

More people died seventy eight year old jerry current in january thirty one year old tracy jerome gesture junior in march and sixty five year old john corcoran and sixty seven year. Old robert wallace. In april each of these tragedies were reported to the authorities but no one made any connection between them until forty one year old miranda shop werner on may twenty fifth two thousand nineteen miranda arrived at the bahia principe bougainville resort with her husband. Dan the getaway was to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary. They hadn't been in their room. Long maranda took a drink from the mini bar. But after her first sip she suddenly convulsed she cried out for her husband and fell backwards onto the bed where she writhed in agony before passing out. Dan swiftly called the paramedics. Dan himself was a doctor. So he searched for miranda's polls he could barely feel it. He administered cpr until the emt's arrived. But neither he nor the medics could revive her. Miranda was declared dead on the scene the victim of a heart attack though miranda did have a history of cardiac issues. Her relatives back in pennsylvania had doubts as to whether they had killed her and their suspicion grew when they learned she had taken a drink from the mini bar right before collapsing. They took it as evidence that something else was a foot in just five days later it seemed they were proven right on may thirtieth at the bahia principe romana hotel staff entered a room to clean. They found two guests lying on the floor unresponsive. The housekeepers rushed to get help but it was too late. The couple was already long dead. The resort identified the bodies as sixty three year. Old edward homes and forty nine year old. Cynthia day of maryland. The pair had been scheduled to check out earlier that day. An autopsy revealed they had eerily died from the same cause as david harrison pulmonary dima. All three were cardiac related deaths in which fluid filled their lungs. But in edward and cynthia's case no one called for help. If their hearts gave out at different times one of them should have been able to dial reception but there was no call indicating the two people suffered identical heart attacks at the exact same moment with three dead guests in under a week. The bahia principe chain realized they needed to get ahead of the press. The hotel company released a statement stressing that they were doing everything they could to help the families of the deceased and they would cooperate with local authorities to determine if there was any link between their deaths
Why Now Is the Time for Infrared Photography
"I have one two three walks. That i take daily in every time i head out the door. I have a camera with me hoping to capture something new and unique. These walks important because my jobs as a photographer have all been crushed by the virus. And i haven't traveled for work since march twenty twenty so each day. I hope to see something new to record and possibly share with others in lately each day. I've been disappointed. So one of my friends herald is a big fan of infrared photography and he's shown me a lot of different things that you can do with it to go beyond what i've dabbled with the years so i go all right. This is kind of exciting. So i decided to revisit. What's happening in. I are and to tell you the truth. What's going on right now. Blew my mind. It did in the me excited about my daily walks again now. The big leap that i took this time. And i'm gonna talk about a pun intended the full spectrum of photography In a few minutes here because you can start versus simply. I done that. And it's very satisfying and then there are more options and more options more options and each time you go to that next set of options everything gets a bit more exciting but in the beginning any of it is exciting. Believe especially compared to probably which you've been doing or haven't been doing lately the big leap that i took was guinea my hands on a olympics. Emt mark three that had been converted to full spectrum by kalari vision now. Kalari vision is a company There about three companies. You know three big name companies. That are doing these infrared. Conversions and kalari vision is my favorite of the three. I have a camera by them. I've talked with them. I mean these are terrific folks and they really know what they're doing and all you have to do is click on the link in the site and you can go over there in you know read All sorts of background information really understand what's going on with infrared photography learn about all the filters learn about all the cameras you know by converted cameras. Get your camera converted. I mean it just goes on. And on and i'll go into more of that right now but when i referred to kalari vision that is the company that is doing the work you know for the gear that i'm using and they provide the filters that i use with that gear so getting this ten mark three converted to full spectrum camera just opened up this whole new world for me beyond what i had experienced before with. Ira photography because by using different filters a different points in the wavelength I was able to create completely different effects for example now on i take those daily walks over familiar territory which i'm doing still right because things haven't really changed to tell you the truth. It's like i'm in a different world each day on monday. I can shoot with a seventy two filter for stunning. I are black and white photography and then on tuesday take the same walk with the i. r. chrome filter and get something completely different this delicious world of complimentary oranges in blues. So every day is new. Thanks to photography. And now i'm excited. I'm excited i'm excited to go on the walk. I'm excited thinking about okay. How am i going to approach today. And because you don't know how certain things are going to look until you actually look at them through the camera. It's like this adventure in. You have like this magic set of glasses to unlock the view into this different world. And sometimes i'm very surprised but what i see. Sometimes you can kind of anticipate a little bit. What you're gonna see but every time it is then fresh and exciting. Now this backup a little bit on you know getting started with. I are so you can start small and ease into i r or go big with the converted camera and then you know there's like lots of options in between what i'm going to do now is give you five helpful tips about. I are photography to help you. Kinda shape your approach right now anyway and then you can plot your path forward after that but kind of help you figure out where to start right now with this if you are indeed interested in it. Here's the first thing you can test an existing camera for i our sensitivity. Some cameras just right out of the box are more sensitive to the i. R. part of the spectrum then other cameras. Which is you know the i parts of the higher end of the spectrum. I have like for instance one of those. It is a older fuji film. X twenty is just a regular x twenty s a little Range finder camera. That will super popular when it was out because it was small enough to put in your pocket but you know it packed some really nice kind of professional level features in it so. I've always liked this camera. In fact i believe it was the first fujifilm's digital camera i own so one of the delights with this camera is that it also has pretty decent i are sensitivity
The Truth to Shining Brightly & Letting the World See You by Shirley of Daring Living
"The truth to shining brightly and letting the world see you by shirley of daring living dot com. Today i wanna share one truth shining brightly and presenting yourself in this world how it all started and some background into my past. Last weekend i attended a series of events held by mpg. Tgi where house honor to connect with a group of exchange university students from taiwan is a program that was involved in during my graduate years so group that holds very dear to my heart was again at the event. I saw my old self. Who as if. I was back there in the organizing team with them just a few years ago struggling and carrying along with me the overwhelming burden of school. The pressure of meeting up to appearance appearances. Society's expectations the constant struggle to finding my passions and most importantly the desperation to reaching that never ending benchmark of set forward for myself. I was never good enough this time. However i was the bystander with much more communist and openness than before i felt the exchange tunes hopes dreams aspirations for the future also saw their personal struggles of finding themselves searching for a place to belong in this world this experience stirred up a gentle reminder. I think we all deserve to hear about presenting ourselves to this world while also staying true to who we are. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine in this society and organizations today that a certain type of people that everyone looks up to in order to be successful even during my years in business school in every class we were encouraged. Step onto the stage and take the spotlight own. The room with confidence communicate inspire people with our ideas see. We were taught to be leaders. Not just any type of leader. The extroverted charismatic leaders that were highly valued. Sometimes the idea you need to communicate is so important they have to take the stage to express them to the right people but being the center of the attention is not where everyone thrives for me. It is not where i thrive is not where i can be myself. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine. If you not feel comfortable leading group or being in the center of attention it is okay was important is you must understand yourself and find the best method and environment that suits you where you can effectively and truthfully express yourself and what you have to offer. I used a model these attention loving sociable charismatic extroverts and thought i had to be them in order to be successful in life but the truth is everyone of our personalities is so different. According to the myers briggs personality test we generally group are personality traits in this world into sixteen different types out of these sixteen half of them are extroverts. Matt of the eight only two of them are considered to have the natural charismatic trait mehan. Tj and ian fj. So what does that mean for. Those of us who do not belong as an emt j. or espn fj. While it means that you simply cannot pretend to be someone you are not and he should not have to be even if you are one of the two leadership type personalities. How much do you understand yourself. Be aware of your strengths weaknesses. Any environment that you are most comfortable in but of course these personality tests are just a start because they are just categories and still don't fully define you dive into your past experiences if think about what you enjoy doing try different hobbies follow your curiosities engage and take part in different groups and communities find out the best way for you to express yourself to the world. Perhaps it is through art through inventions through the internet to writing or through verbal communication. What kind of environment. You thrive in his through one on one conversations or in small groups or in a big stadium with hundreds of people to work better by yourself or a team. We are all different. Don't ever compare yourself in your situation with someone else's focus on yourself work on yourself. That's the only way for you to grow what the world needs while we really need are all types of people portraying different strengths in this world. Q. imagine what it would be like if the world is filled only with allowed charismatic extroverts and actually be pretty scary place to be and nothing would ever get done. We do need charismatic. People in this world to inspiring gather people together a will. We need also are quieter introverted. People and leaders who prefer to stay behind the scenes and are not afraid to let others take the spotlight. Moee need our brave people who choose to believe and follow crazy leaders with visions. What we need are committed people who follow through with what they say and can put words into actions when we need are open minded people who can really lean in and listen first before speaking while we need are kind people who have compassion and can show empathy in this cruel world. What we really need are people who have strong self awareness who are honest and truthful to themselves so that men return they can be their best selves to better serve this world quote. Ask yourself when makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive
Breonna's Law: Why we need police reform
"And. I'm really excited talk today's and gas. We know that one of the things that's going to be on the ballot this election season is criminal justice reform and we think about criminal justice reform. We really don't think about all the ways all offices where we vote for people and they have an impact, and today we're going to be speaking to two women in elected office who had been leading on criminal justice. Reform issues. We have state's attorney I-I've brave boy from Maryland in Kentucky State representative. Avocado. Scott in true fashion I we have to start with having you tell us what you're you into politics and we'll start with you state's attorney. Well, that's a great question. Actually I, had no intentions in getting into politics really it was my father who want to work on a campaign. He knows sometimes you have the your parents even as adults. That's. Asked. Me I was going to be a lawyer told him down and. Then, he told me I think I like you to work on his campaign I. Think you need to get politically as like now they're not. WanNa do that. But that the person who? Wanted. To work for happen to have graduate from the same law school that I will. The Howard University School of law. I'm did okay. Another in help bison out. Ever since V. I love how Howard alums Y'all always get an issue it can do no. Just regular conversation. How are you today? Oh I went to Howard. Thank you. Scott. Tell us whether you into politics. Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained
The New iPhones Are Here!
"The new iphones are here the new iphones oh. Okay. I'm down. The Tuesday apple had an iphone event that it was all about the new five G. iphones that have five G. that even have horizon five G. CEO five G. Talking about five G. on the stage for about five G. minutes and then they showed all the phones and literally. I didn't count it, but there is a super cut on Youtube said the words five G. More than two dozen times over and over many times horizon five G. selling all of the benefits you're going to get from five G. None of which you're GonNa get I should point out. Even with the five G. phone because. All of the really cool stuff. You know the four gigabits download speeds. Are. Available Leila. Narrow tiny teeny weeny area in certain cities of the country maybe in one corner of Football Stadium. That's about it. It's only good outdoors don't work inside because it can't go through walls. It only goes about eight hundred feet. So you have to be within eight hundred feet of the cell tower with line of sight access. It can't be a tree between you can't be a building between your they can't be a human or even a raindrop line of sight clear vision eight, hundred feet Max away, and then you might get four g if no one else is using it. For gigabits not. Five, jeep with four gigabits that's confusing it's a marketing term. There's two kinds of five G. actually there's more, but there's two main kinds and the funny thing is that Tuesday verizon also rolled out. There what they call their quote nationwide five G.. The one you don't have to live in Fourteenth Street and race and Philadelphia to get. Outside within a hundred feet of the tower. That is the same as T. mobile's nationwide five G.. It's what we call. low band or It's a six hundred megahertz, which means could go through walls. It can travel a good distance. It's kind of like. In. It's a lot like what you got right now. Maybe a little faster may be probably not. Fact in some cases is even slower. So don't you know I I don't I think apple they must have given apple. How much money do you have to give apple to get your CEO on stage to get them to plug your stuff all the time to save verizon five, rise, five, g. all I mean apple's got more money than God there. The got hundreds of billions of dollars just sitting in the bank with nothing to do. You how much does verizon have to give apple to get all that attention a lot I guess. Maybe. The next time you're in the verizon store that'll explain the giant. By An iphone today billboard I duNNo. Apple also. They didn't use to do this stuff. They didn't. They didn't need to I. Don't think they need to today. They also kind of understated the price of the phone because the price they quoted people was with carrier subsidy. So, unless you're buying it from at and T. or verizon, no, t mobile didn't have eighteen team rising and it's Only, in the base model phones, will you get that deal? So it's not even the price of the phone, it's like when the back when they used to say, it's two hundred dollars with a two year contract. And you pay for it even after two years over, you're GONNA pay for that phone for the rest of your life. So there's four new phone. I just want to say that I want to get that off my chest Pay No attention to the hand waving about five G.. Very. FEW PEOPLE ARE GONNA if he if you're in a five G. Area Nice to have I mean imagine four gigabits. That's wow. That's fast. But. That's Very, few people listening to this can. Be a city eight, hundred feet of a tower you can't be outside it's. Kinda like Wi fi really is what it is Which makes me wonder why you know do people even care about this since most of the time when you're inside, you have wi fi. you know they they said Oh look a a an EMT in emergency Medical technician can get downloaded a a brain, scan a cat scan in the ambulance and look at it up because they have. But I don't does that is that something people are saying, Oh, I really wish I could do that. I. Need to do that. I don't know what they're gonNA do with a brain scan is there right driving you the hospital but okay, fine. Anyway, phones, there's an iphone. Twelve's by the way this is iphone twelve. There's the iphone twelve mini. Which is many it's smaller than the iphone se that they just started selling I mean it's really small. It's the size of like an iphone four. It's tight. But this is what's cool about it. If you want a small phone, it has all the features of the big boy phone. and. It's one hundred bucks cheaper. So. But. But you don't get it for the price. Probably you might s es even cheaper. So you know if you really want to save money get an se which is a perfectly good phone that has the guts have been I. Phone Eleven, and this is has the guts of an iphone twelve and its Tutsi. And it has a nice cameras and all that stuff. Then there's the iphone twelve, which is the IPHONE. that's a little bit bigger, and then there's the iphone twelve pro that's a little bit bigger still, and then there's the iphone Pro Max which is humongous. That's the one I'm going to get. I want humongous right. They didn't really explain the fact that the iphone twelve pro twelve pro Max have kind of different cameras. The only the twelve pro Max, you have to buy the humongous phone. If you want I mean they did some interesting things. They have a sensor that's fifty percent bigger. The that means a lot more light gets in and it has built in optical image stabilization. The sensor shakes when you shake That's pretty cool but that's only on the Max. I, don't think they really made that clear.

Dr. Leana Wen responds to Trump intentionally downplaying COVID-19
"Are now joined by Dr Lino, when Former Health Commissioner Baltimore and. Professor of Public Health at George Washington University Dr Wen welcome back to skulduggery. Happy. To join you always. So as a public health professional. What is your reaction to hearing the president saying he did not want to level with the American people about the severity of the corona virus because he didn't want to create panic. While I. The first thing that I thought about was my patients I think about now my patients who? Lost their lives I think about the patients I treated who survived but are living with long-term effects of covid nineteen will now have to be on dialysis who now president heart failure who have had strokes a nail cannot move a part of their body or cannot speak as a result. I think about all those individuals lost their loved ones. I also think about the physicians and nurses respiratory therapists and EMT's gotten infected because they didn't have enough people. In what it would have meant if they knew, and as they will know about how this all did not have to happen, and so it's just incredibly distressing and devastating to learn about all of this because frankly when you look at. What's been hampering our response the entire time it's the mixed messaging and part of. The commentary around us was well, maybe the mixed messaging is due to lack of knowledge or maybe it's due to incompetence. But as it turns out if this is deliberate and if it's there is a deliberate if there has been a deliberate effort to mislead the American people and the cost is people's lives. What does that really mean in just wanted to to respond to? Two. mikes question about specifically this issue of panic that president trump at the White House of what we didn't want to cause panic. We didn't want to have some kind of fear as as the as the response from the American people will actually the best. To fear is the truth. The best thing in the most important thing that the American people in any people want to known in time of crisis is the truth what is actually happening what do we know? What do we not know? What are we going to do to find this out? What are the actions of the federal government is going to be taking? What are things that each individual person can be doing right now and it is beyond shameful and so devastating that week, this could have been done but it was not yeah. I mean, you know these are this is what you do on a daily basis as a as a physician and a public health professional. It seems to me that if you tell people the truth if you tell them how to mitigate. You give them agency that is exactly how you calm people down. But I guess the bottom line question is, is there any doubt in your mind at all that by withholding information and not leveling with the American people that what? President trump did. Cost, significant numbers of American lives. Well, we have the research to illustrate this. We have modeling studies done here in the US that showed that if we acted even a week sooner, and this is back, we're talking about these at home orders and margin acted a week sooner we could have saved thirty, six, thousand lives. We have our own counterfactual in the form of other countries that took prompt that had a national response that had a coordinated messaging to the public, and we saw for example, the case of South Korean that had their first diagnosis of Cova nineteen. A first goes case of nineteen. The same day that we did that they have infections, deaths that are many many. Fold, less than ours. They have jets ranging in the hundreds versus we have them in the hundreds of thousands. We also know that at that time exactly as you said that we could have given the American people agency I mean I think about there's so many allergies to this right you could imagine if there were a hurricane or tornado that's coming. What you want to do is to tell people there is time there is time for us to take action this you can protect yourself and your family imagine if you find out that the government knew about this impending weather catastrophe didn't tell people visiting they didn't want to cause panic, but actually people died as a result of that. would be the outrage or imagine I always think in terms of clinical analogies. Imagine if a physician didn't want to cause a patient panic and fear but then withheld in important diagnosis bump that patience and by the time the patient found out it was too late and that she was going to die versus if they found out a few months sooner, their lives could have been saved I mean. Imagine that. That's the equivalent of what's happening here a doctor when I imagine you had a chance to listen to the tape conversation between Bob. Woodward and president trump what was going through your mind when you listen to that what part of that conversation shocked you the most. I think was shocked me the most was that president trump had a good understanding of the risks and dangers of virus from as early as February seventh. That he had a conversation with President Xi. Of China which is already another kind of bizarre moment because it seems like it was you know there's been a lot of blaming of China but seems like the Chinese president. Action alerted president trump to potential dangers but president trump was. Can't what these dangers are and was able to articulate how that this was something that's more dangerous of the flu that could affect young people to that it was airborne and therefore is extremely contagious that back in end of January, he was warned by his own team that this could be a once in a generation type of dangerous virus at a he understood it comprises it and could articulate back in. So I, think back to. all these press conferences that president trump has had since then where he deliberately it seems now downplayed the severity of the virus and that. Contrast is so jarring when I think about what could have been done in the meantime. That February seventh phone call with Woodward really leaped out me. Now, I do have to say that I do think it would have been really difficult to persuade the American public in February when the numbers were so low to take the kind of socially distance restrictions and lockdowns and all the other requirements that would have been necessarily would it would have been difficult to get the. American, public on board win. So few cases had been reported in the United States, but that said when you look at that February, seven phone call where trump is telling Woodward. This is more deadly than even your strenuous flew. This is deadly stuff which is precisely the opposite of what he was saying to the public five times more. He said five times more deadly didn't he? But I mean that and on that same day he's tweeting. To the world, I'm the you know the the corona virus would disappear. You know when the weather starts to warm and on March seventh saying no, I'm not concerned at all. It's not. It's that dichotomy of saying privately to Woodward. He thinks it's private because it's for a book that isn't GonNa come out for a while you know, hey, this is really deadly stuff while telling the public don't worry it's all going to go away. That's right now, I'll give you that same analogy for a weather atrophy. Imagine if the president or governor or some other leader knew about this impending catastrophe and is saying this acknowledging this in some private setting but not letting people know whose lives would be directly affected and for do something about it I mean this is. This is not a storm that's going to hit us no matter what we're all going to die I mean this is something that we could actually prevent by taking steps I do think that you make a good point about how difficult it would have been to get the American people on board early on when we didn't yet have diagnosed cases and no deaths in the US that's true but. For Two things one is that the federal government could have been taken that time to prepare and arguably had we gotten our testing capacity up the very beginning way now. South Korea and many other countries did. We probably. Have even needed these dramatic shutdowns. The way that we did eventually, we had to have these shells the point that we did because we had so much community spread and not nearly enough testing couldn't rate it in. If we had the testing, maybe we didn't need those shutdowns in the first place but the other thing too is because the president consistently downplayed the severity of the election, the American people were left wondering what do I do now? Who Do I listen to? Is this even so serious, I mean. We are seeing something as basic as masks as you both know it as we talked about being politicized, and so I think that is key to all this ad. We actually still have a chance to turn this around and I. Hope I'm not sure that this will happen but I do hope that the president. Takes this opportunity now and instead of defending his own past actions says it maybe this crazy wild dream that this could occur but I hope you'll say now. Dan. Here's where we are. This is extremely serious whatever happened to the past happened in the past but here's what we can do moving forward and let science and public health finally lead
Justice for Breonna Taylor with Andrea J Ritchie
"March thirteen, twenty twenty Briana was shot and killed by police in Louisville Kentucky. In what's been described as a botched raid officers barged into Taylor's apartment under a no knock warrant and fired multiple rounds. No drugs were found the no knock warrant in question was actually for Taylor's ex boyfriend and his friends who live miles away. It had already been detained by the time. Please enter Taylor's home. As maddening as honest death is most Americans hadn't even heard of it until nearly three months later as the national unrest around the deaths of Egmont arbitrary and George Floyd's began to unfold. What all the stories of those killed and brutalized by police are important. Brianna isn't the first black woman to have hers reduced to a footnote in the larger narrative. Why are the guests of black women at the hands of police received so much differently, and what can we do to change that? Today to help us understand. We're joined by Andrea J, reaching the author of invisible, no more police violence against black women and women of color. Andrea Richie thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks so much for having me, so let's jump right into it and start with your book invisible. No more. Can you tell us a bit about it and like what inspired you to write this? One inspire me to write invisible. No more was the work that I've been doing for the past couple of decades, documenting or around litigating around advocating around and just generally Around black women girls, Queer and Trans People's experiences, policing and wanting to provide some context for the individual cases that we were hearing about so for instance thinking about Brianna Taylor. If you looked invisible, no more you learn that. Unfortunately she's far from the first black woman who was killed in a no knock drug raid. You bring up Taylor and I know there's definitely this feeling when I look at her case. In the cases of other black women would been killed at the hands of police. It seems like they don't get as much attention as the cases of black man who had been killed by the police. But the thing you point out your book is that that's not a feeling that that is reality. He talked to us a bit about that pattern. Yeah I think the title of the book is both a statement of fact, a demand an aspiration, right? It's a statement of fact that hosts Sandra. Bland black women's experiences of policing are no longer invisible. In the way they were pre twenty fifteen often say that before twenty fifty nine. I feel like I'd be talking underwater constantly about violence against women and girls, and it just wasn't landing, and then all of a sudden in two thousand fifteen. It's like my. My head popped above water, and suddenly there was also a lot of other voices speaking in same same thing, so in that sense. We're at an unprecedented level visibility of black women's experiences of policing. I would say that's true for Briana Taylor. There's a way in which we still have a long way to go for black women's experiences to be at the center of our consciousness around this issue to be informed by Black Women's experiences. That's the next step we have to move past visibility to action. Why do you think there's been such a difference between the reception? Of Brianna? Taylor versus Church Floyd. Our understanding of police violence is definitely shaped to the experiences, a black man who are assumed to be straight and not Trans Right. That's the story of state violence that we hear that with the media reproduces that we produce the telling stories to each other in such a way that even when black women's experiences happen in broad daylight on camera in the same way, the happened for George Floyd. Are Invisible in some way when you look at the incident report for Briana. Taylor's killing. It says no one was injured. And that's just an extreme example of how invisible violence against black women is. Here's a black woman who died in a hail of bullets blood out in her own bed in her own home where she was sleeping. Police report says no one was hurt the last reason i. think it's invisible is because. If as a society, we had to contend with state violence against black women that's informed by both anti blackness and gender violence right beside more than we would have to contend with anti black women violence in our communities. Contend again with the fact that this nation is built on violence against black women's bodies and black and Trans bodies and we're not ready to do that. You know there's this theory, though I think we've all heard that part of the reason why there's such a big difference between the response to be honest anthem response to George. Is that free? Honest wasn't caught on camera quick. Do you think about that I unfortunately point people to a lot of videotape? Black women dying on camera to police Natasha McKenna is a ten minute video of her being. tased to death by police there's. Video of Doina Johnson, a Black Trans woman, being brutally beaten in the police precinct that did not inspire an uprising in the same way that Rodney. King stood. They don't WanNa. Keep repeating kind of the the degree of violence, but what I want to say is that there's no shortage of videotaped evidence of police violence against black women I don't. Think that's. The entirety of the story is something. They also feels especially Kinda unique about Brianna Taylor's case is that it's almost become this this inescapable meam as of late like people I've seen weird social media posts like even sometimes dance challenges like it. It's kind of taken on a life of its own ultimately is that type of attention is? Is that helpful or harmful? I think that it recreates some of the narratives that produce the death of black women. I think it's recreating the notion. The objectification of black women that in this case Brianna Taylor story is an opportunity to make. A clever pun or acute mean and we've lost spree on his humanity in that. We've lost the fact that she was a sister. She was a daughter. She was an emt. She was someone who was full of joy of laughter jokes the life of the party she was. Multidimensional Person Right and I think we just need to be careful that we're not turning visibility in the way that black women have been made visible in ways that are harmful produce more violence.

"Is real life you know and so let's talk about this. Last week. Was Likely Week Wesley. Two weekends ago. My dog had a neurological difficulty. I thought he was having a stroke. So this is the same week I out that my best friend is moving. You know six hours away from me. My dog has a stroke and My psychiatrist is leaving and I like while the three main components of my life are all leaving me great. That was my first thought process. I'm being abandoned everything that is me well. I took all week off. I didn't do anything with the PODCAST. I just basically Sues myself and like reassured myself that even if all these everything that I was still like my foundation left me that I would still be okay now. Is that a form of resilience worth their. I guess you're you're you're taking because you're you're you're taking responsibility for the initial thought your initial thought was all my support is abandoning your having. That thought for reason because to a certain extent they're they're leaving and you have to be willing to face that and at first it causes a little nervousness may be a little anxiety and so you effectively thought your way through that process so that you had effectively emotions. Because there's you know there's nothing wrong with relying on people were were relational beings. We love emotional connection. That's where our best relationships are built on vulnerability in emotion and so taking responsibility for your thoughts that I'm having this thought for a reason why we're having this thought because they're my support system wire why are they must i. This was my best friend. This person this person and and taking account of that but then holding yourself accountable for you know what life is going to go on. Life has to go on. So what am I going to do about it? And that's the best thing and this is not a handed amongst research and figured it out. This is just my observation. The most successful people that I know whatever that means to them are the people where events happen. They take a breath and they say now what. They don't get caught up in drama. They don't get caught up in being a victim. They are one hundred percent accountable for what they know and what they can control and they focus on the control. And that's what you did. Is You took a breath and you said okay. Let me let me figure out what's happening here. An out tonight vestments forward. That is exactly resilience. Inaction the accountability part of it is amazing to me. 'cause like my dog was like during in front of me and it was just. It was a nightmare. And I'm actually contacting people that I had interviews with that week's at that moment while I'm watching my dog and going. Oh my God I'm going to have to have a funeral. I'M GONNA have to do all this stuff for my dog and I'm contacting them going. We have to reschedule. Like very like you know like nothing was going on. But like you have to reschedule. I have a personal situation. That's going on and I you know I'm sorry. I regret this but can we scheduled for March and in the in the meanwhile for one part of my brain is very logically functioning and the other part of my brain is like freaking out. Says all thought of what I'm going to have to do if he had passed on this time around. We're like it was really weird. It was like a very much like a like a duality in my head that they both managed to work at that time. But you know it's very important for people to understand that resilience isn't always pretty sometimes. You're just making your way through a swamp and you're like you know what one step in front of the other. I'm going to get their things happen again. Life's chaotic you can't control all that stuff you're making the best decisions that you can make in the time and then later on after the fact you can take a breath and you can look back and say okay this is. This is what I did really well and I want to continue to do that. And what reinforce that I WANNA look at? Here's a couple things that I didn't quite do so well next time. I'm going to try to do this here. And here's the best thing that you can do if you're ever in a situation where don't know what to do or things like the seems like everything's falling apart. Everything's going against you like the worst case scenario. Do you know what first responders are taught when they arrive on the scene. What are they doing well? There's there's A. There's a certain saying that they go by and they. There's there's a couple of things but essentially squashed down to scene safe so I responded retired. Law enforcement firefighters paramedics. Emt's when they arrive on scene they're taught to go through their mind. Seen SAFE for a couple of reasons number one. You've got to. Yeah you have to set the seat right for safety of you know cops looking for perpetrators or is there a fire? Is there possible? Exposures like all the things that that first responders would have to look for. Firefighters aren't GonNa just run into a building daft assessment. I write so not only are the assessing the scene of their environment. That's an opportunity for them to assess themselves to make sure that they're ready to go. Because if you're not effective right if your heart's racing you're totally out of control than you're no longer a a productive member of your team and you're certainly not going to go in and you're after. Save anybody you're not liability so imagine a first responder coming upon a scene and the first thing that they're taught to do is take depress right. Yeah it's offering so think about what scenario you're facing that you know legitimate is that you're most likely running the million things through your head that you can't just take a step back take a second and take a deep breath so that you can collect your thoughts so that you can have the productive thoughts which result in productive emotions we. Everybody has the capability most situations. You have the capability to do this. I think in awe well let me maybe not an airplane crash. I mean you're kind of kind of out of your hands on that but I think. For almost all.

But I do think that Pearl is a very reasonable solution to this problem, and I wouldn't I wouldn't necessarily advocate against parole. But if you if you were interested in learning something more modern, I think python is a reasonable answer. Poor ruby was so popular known as even mentioning it. I mean to be honest. I think part of the problem is I've written a little bit of Pearl. Not a whole lot of written a little bit more PHP, but still not a whole lot. And I've written a teeny teeny tiny bit of python, and I've written effectively, no ruby. And I think that's maybe it's my familiarity. That's that's tainting my answer.

And that's why I use Carthage now because it is so much simpler to you to not have to rely on anything ruby related to do these sorts of things. I understand that. Once you see the matrix. It's all easy, quote, unquote. But I've seen the matrix. And honestly, I'm not interested in seeing it right now. All right moving on anonymous writes, I wonder about the potential long-term degradation of hearing that may be causing by using air air pods many times per day often I end up cranking up the volume just to hear a podcast book or phone call that I'm listening to especially in noisy environments. Do you have any sense of whether aftershocks which is a prior? And I believe feature sponsor would have better long-term hearing impact, or which that is to say, I think that you know, there would be better on your ears is that method of sound conduction safer or essentially the same in terms of how the volume impacts the years. So I should clarify that I am not an audiology. Fist or an ENT. And we don't have any spouses of listeners currently with us here on the show to correct me who are EMT's. So this is all my speculation. But. You know, hearing dammit long-term hearing damage from volume I think would occur regardless of whether it was volume that was generated by exterior pressure versus the vibrations. That are induced in your in your cheekbone from a bone conduction headphones like aftershocks. So I it could it's still volume being picked up by the ear drum and the inter and everything else..
