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.

Bakari Sellers talks about the death of George Floyd
"Are really looking forward to the next gas considering all the things that have transpired especially up in Minneapolis. Our next guest. We just played a clip from CNN. This morning is Bakari sellers. Who grew up in the State of South Carolina? His father a noted civil rights pioneer. He's been very close to the South Carolina Program Practicing Law for many many years and continuing to to this day in Colombia. And as we say hello to Macari I want to ask him about Certainly the news of the day but we also want to mention for just a second to his brand new book that came out the other day my vanishing country Cari sellers. Thank you very very much for joining us. It's great to have you on the program. Man I I love your show Thankful for this platform and thank you for having me today on. What is a a truly tough day for most of us in this great country? I WanNa talk about that but I just wanted hug for a second. About what compelled you and really push you to writing this book. I mean you're still very young man usually Mars for old decrepit people like me but still on your your early thirties. I'm really interested in how you got to this point. Yeah so you know I. I wanted to write a political book and I'll be honest which Paul that no one wanted to buy it. And so when I sat down and talked about my story coming from the Orangeburg massacre in February eighth to sixty eight where my father was shot. subsequently imprison all the officers. Who fired shots into? The group of students were charged and found guilty. Three young men died in Smith. Samuel eminent Delano Middleton My father was shot and imprisoned. I chronicled that all the way through my rise to being young black elected official in the country. All the way through Charleston South Carolina. Where I lost my good friend Clemente. I'm in the Charleston massacre and so I just highlight the ups and downs and the trauma that comes along with being a person of color and what I the reason I wrote. This book is so that we could All have some sense of understanding so we begin to have conversations about healing this country And you know your book comes out during a pandemic and it also comes out around the death of Ahmad. Aubrey the desktop Brianna Taylor. Now we had this death in Minneapolis. And so I think it's an evergreen book and You know it's a discussion. It's difficult but necessary to have the car. It's it's so easy for all of us to talk about. No one should act this way but I wanNA get deeper because in watching what you did this morning and really knowing you quite well and hearing you speak out on so many other issues. I really want you to get to the heart of the matter here. this is bigger than than an isolated incident in. Minneapolis or Georgia or somewhere else. Is it not it is and you know. It's it's not just myself but you see you see all these athletes you see Lebron James of the world you see. I'm all the list of NBA players goes far and wide and even young college athletes are taking span. Because Y- for me personally it's about what do I tell my black children in this country and I know a lot of your listeners are like here we go again a. Why are we going down this path? But it's the fact that I have to have conversations with children that others do not and you know the crime that was Allegedly committed was forgery of a twenty dollar bill. He didn't even know that there's evidence to say he didn't even know that the twenty dollar bill was fake But regardless the penalty should not be a death penalty crime and so now I have a fifteen year. Old Daughter should be fifteen on June first. Who is about to Get her permit. You wouldn't do. I tell her. What do I teach her? I'm raising twins that are seventeen months old and one is a boy stokely. What do I tell him in? So that pain and this is not new You know it goes back to Emmett. Till and mega rivers Jimmy Jackson in the Orangeburg massacre the massacre on the campus of Jesse Jackson State in Kent State all the way through The recent incidents that we've had and so the question is when will it stop and I you know. I think that we have to begin to have difficult conversations in this country and some people don't want to have but I'm pressing forward to make to let people know that there is a real pain in this country and and there's painful by a lot of people today particularly black people in this country and we have to hear that pain. He wrote the other day. Being Black in America is almost perpetual state of grieving. I I know I know you well enough to understand but I want you to explain to to those out there and your political commentator. You're you're you know what I'm referring to. How do you explain that to the rest of us? You know. I I say that before you turn me off turn me down I say? Why don't you turn me up and let's have a conversation? Where is listening and understand and I come from a place where my father was literally shot a law enforcement and I had the utmost respect for law enforcement officers. My that was literally shot. My father was taken away from my family because he was actually arrested. For that night I father became the first and only one man riot in the history of this country. He was charged tried and convicted of rioting because he was a member of the Civil Rights Organization. They denied bond and they housed them on death row. My mother had to carry my sister my oldest sister their oldest child. She carried and gave birth while my father was in prison. And so when you talk about that trauma that emerged from my father went through the burden of being a black man in the south with felony. You carry all of that. And I'd had a great deal of success in my life and my job is to make sure that others are able to get access to those blessings as well and then I lived through the Charleston massacre. Paul like my good friend. Clemente painting he was was murdered in Bible. Study You know he let somebody come into his church. He set them beside him and he was shot in the net. And so when you think about all of these things and you think about the fact that I'm now living for them and there's no one there's absolutely no one in their right mind. They can lie to you. They can call in today until you that amount all day deserve today. Brianna Taylor. She was an emt worker. They served been no knock warrant. Went in and shot her and they can't tell you. The George Minneapolis deserved I either. And so that is what I'm saying. We have to begin to understand the reasons why and before you turn the conversations like this down. Let's turn them up. And let's have an honest conversation about how we move forward to broaden this because you of all people know it's twenty twenty. The political season never ends and a lot of people bacar just already made up their mind not so much the election but about everything this conversation. We're having the pandemic and I want you to try to take us there because I preach on this program. I don't want to talk about politics. But you can't get away from politics and especially at a time like this one hundred thousand people who died Do through the growing virus The overwhelming majority of these individuals especially in these large cities. The data points are are people of Color. I mean we have to talk about that This season is upon us. And you know regardless I want people to exercise their right to vote their right to vote safely You know you politics part of everything we do in life and you know I ask. 'cause I'm a big game cut fan and I was like the way to get you know my game friends and my. I don't have any clemson friends but you know the the people who go to school at Clinton though the way you get them to stay at home and stay inside and say that if we do not stay inside we won't have football season and so we're living. A lot of people are living through a great deal of trauma You know we're we're pausing we aren't able to go out. We aren't able to be with loved ones. If you get sick and have to go to the hospital you have to go by yourself

Wheres the stop button??
"I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller and foss mood. Hey guys hey so. It's a lovely Tuesday afternoon. We're recording this earlier than normal. Actually know what day of the week it is. I keep track an end. You know we have to record the show earlier. Because Seth is turning into a GRANDPA and Sunday starting to starting to do woodworking and go to bed early trump would it becomes a teacher just random side story about shop teachers I actually didn't get take shop class in high school. We sort of had one. But I I did a drafting course. Instead which turned out to be very valuable and useful to me later in life and so I'm happy I did it We I was like the last year they did paper drafting with the square and know the arm moving around and doing all by answers really cool on and then learned cad later but separate from that My wife was telling a story last night as we were talking about some of these things and I bought more tools or power tools on having the crap turns out matters a lot but she's timing the story about how she did something in shop class when she was like in middle school and hers wasn't very good but her sister who's a year younger than her came back and it was really good in much straighter lines and this and that and I'm like oh she probably is that the right the right the fence and had it all working correctly. I don't think we had that was like how could you do that? You use a table. Solid data blade without a French. So now you just held it carefully. This that's Super Dangerous. Did have missing finger cystic wait. Why get another kids ever lost fingers in Class? And maybe maybe the shop teacher lost in a different way. I don't know but just from a visual perspective in the image. You're trying to project. I don't see how that's a good idea. Not One of my which teachers told us to tell us how he'd come in on weekends with dead dear to cut them up on the we're GonNa be completely topic here for the first couple of is a friend of mine who lives in the catskills apparently China some stories about their neighbor once the stupid APP Arnold next next next door next door chats or this or that in something. Apparently someone hit a deer inside. Hey you know. Put a message on the side of the road around here. Be careful driving over there and one of the responses was like you just left it there. You didn't do anything else. Which okay fine notified the authorities like you have to tell us family? Apparently like a serious response was like wait. What family someone has to go find the family of the dead deer and let it know that mom dad is dead. I thought I thought I thought you were going to say that. They had told him to go pick it up in. Us The media. It's actually. It's actually a thing you know. I was surprised that they didn't give in where they are and whatnot. But maybe it was. Hey here's where it is if anyone wants to go picking up and eat it. It's only been a couple of hours. Probably Maga's haven't gotten to it yet. I Dunno next door is an entertaining beast. I have not far in my life avoided getting into it and I'd like to keep about if you like to read just just completely nonsense cyncical stuff and crazy neighbors. It is definitely for you. I spent a decent amount of time in my life on twitter quotient. I need man all right. So let's dive into some stories here. the first one is a propublica a article about the. Tsa over a million in ninety five masks even the airports are basically emt and TSA staffing levels down And it really doesn't need one point. Three million in ninety five masks and so this was concerns were raised back in April and You know they were saying we should donate these and people said No. We're not GONNA donate them. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA keep them Very interesting are the. Tsa agents working at the customer facing roles wearing masks at all I think they are right at the PX. They are okay but like started masks. Not An five sir. I'm pretty sure they're surgical haven't seen in ninety five used as sort of a weird thing with just the whole and ninety five situation at those are the ones that are going to see. A product guarantee knows transmission By what you know when you ask the question like one is the goal of wearing the mask and how much of it are you trying to control? Obviously one hundred percent time for. Everyone doesn't work right because we don't have the supplies and so someone someone wanted. Today is gonNA open up a warehouse in fine wherever the government put like all the ones they hijacked from the states and from everybody else they're going to be stored somewhere but it is kind of weird and it's instead the says that CSS quietly stored many of them in a warehouse near DFW. We're paying for the warehouse space. Yeah so anyway. It's it's it was expected that this would this would last thirty days. That surplus would last thirty days for all of their security officers but did did not account for the decline in the number of officers needed lately so with air down like ninety five percent in the US. I would suspect it would last a lot longer. I would pose the question. They asked you change their staffing levels knowing them. Let's that's a good question I don't know here's the thing though forty days. That's only if you take. What are one point? Three million two hundred forty only thirty two thousand five hundred so that really don't have there's only thirty thousand thirty thousand. Tsa agents working working per day on for some number's higher. I don't know it seems low for sure and also only one master person per day. The lunch break. You gotta put it back on. The in theory is a really bad idea. Of course I've been wearing the same one for three months now so nothing. Maybe maybe some people out there who were flown have seen what the what the. Tsa agents are wearing. Just let us know. Because I mean I've only been once during all this and other than that have been getting updates on their twitter so next up so Cessna has a new plane. The Cessna Sky Career completed. Its first flight this week. New Clean Design Clean Sheet designed aircraft. Pretty Amazing thought it would never happening again. I will say it. Looks like a minivan of the sky. But it's supposed to be more many. It's supposed to be more like the Ford Transit to fifty or three fifty. Oh Yeah Yeah. That's exactly what it is East Sprinter van. Yeah somethings bolted onto top.

that emerge from that weekend were striking on social media they were pictures of a lawn and one New York City park credit with people mainly white folks who are not socially distance and there was a video of violent arrest of an African American man who went to the hospital because of injuries sustained during an incident by Monday of last week there were new calls to release the data on arrests made for social distancing violations and on Friday the NYPD did release the numbers and they show that eighty one percent of all the arrests were of African American and Latin next voters and your car's public average money Williams was one of those who call for the arrest and summons data to be released he joins us now to talk about policing in New York during a corona virus outbreak Jumanji welcome to all of it thanks for having me appreciate so the dad of the NYPD released last week was for all the rest since the stay at home orders were issued in mid March how long had you and community leaders been asking for the data on social distancing arrest to be released what we reached out to the mailbox seven weeks ago a soul mate six saying that the focus on arrests and summonses we're going to re exacerbate historic problems and we actually gave it a completely different plans that could be executed of course we got a list of all three weeks ago we thought well this data because we started getting all information are about there are desperate district important added value I figure that'll be that Bob when they first initially ignored us and one finally got the gala it was astonishing to me ninety two percent of arrests black and brown sixty percent black in Brooklyn forty people arrested thirty five a black for black America thank you mention to some of the rest was was pretty appalling to complement a ministration we actually got elected because they said they were gonna do police in different what had you advocated for then that early proposal well even if you go back two months ago one of the main problems that yes city in the state with the governor and the mayor never had a clear message to begin are we start using words like quarantine lockdown but they never did make will never have the government issue you want to call it Paul he's going detente think about it we were construction sites open liquor stores males walking around all day long so we had a muddled message to begin to the extent that we start trying to unify the message we said let's have a holistic community response and so make every city agency involved fire department EMT NYPD sanitation try to get into a ball this call messaging on their vehicles let's have automated messaging will maybe locals are after five found let's get the emergency broadcast involved with the pick on every TV station let's get the cure violence which all groups that deal with violence communities will credible messengers let's get the clergy ball so we can be unified education all these communities but that was rejected and instead what we saw was policing and Chelsea pier people having amassed if anything being if we disturb them at all and then another few minutes people being punched in the face and fall to the ground it was very appalling to reach the same communities that have been ravaged distantly by cold over nineteen to begin again by some of the same people who will focus on what when it came to police you are a vocal critic of stop and frisk policing which also targeted black and Latino voters and it applies here is also opposed how concerned are you about the echoes of stop and frisk here I have been here to be concerned about echoes of over policing and district police what I dealt with the abuse Mustafa question Christopher van but you know even though we can get this abuse of course system and check it doesn't do anything about the over policing happens to black and brown communities so whether it will stop question first obviously broken windows how we didn't social distancing the problem is policing in black and brown communities what public health and public safety meeting black and brown communities what kind of building in the principle of transparency meet indiscriminate this administration has more for in some ways when it comes to transparency and accountability they've actually gone backwards even worse and when Giuliani Bloomberg in certain aspects I must disappoint my guess is public advocate Germany Williams you know there was such outcry on social media and everywhere actually after a video was posted of a violent arrest in the Lower East Side of a of a gentleman Mr Wright who was hospitalized reply zero and usually characterized videos of violent arrest as isolated incidents but he started talk about the need for more consistent enforcement what is consistent enforcement look like to you well first we should start with we don't need to open a conversation with the force and that was the problem the government almost among many things that you probably need to enforce this and that is sadly the mayor didn't take us up on our offer a few weeks ago he seems to be revisiting that and so that click here we also want to make sure we were not using the terminology or mark a mystery like actually is like yours you know the frequency is very small and it's not normal because one we have to stop complaining frequency in normal everyone will tell you that the vast majority of these characters and very well that's a good shake but that doesn't mean that the small amount that doesn't involve that doesn't mean that it's not normal for it to happen in black and brown communities so that is still mobile even if it's the least frequent so we have to be clear about that stop telling people they're not experiencing what they're experiencing and so we want to make sure that before committing it's not the main tool but to the extent you have to involve them like Pete it should be equitable you should be doing the same type of policing in every community so it seems that we know how to police we're just not doing it in every community my guess is public advocates Imani Williams you call for the department of justice to open an investigation into the impact of the corona virus on communities of color what's your end goal with this why did you call for the investigation but I also want to just start out looking for presents Eric Adams in the park if we reached out to thirty five elected officials across the country are all experiencing disparity impact and we said one of the J. to investigate there's nobody left to getting off now we do know who runs your cable we're hoping that the lifelong investigators were there will take you seriously and there's no workplace is not happening then probably New York state in New York City we have quite literally among the worst impact on planet earth and that is not just because of the federal government because of bill the bald eagle and more importantly it because of a governor you calm so what many people see more TV every single day what they don't know what the decisions you're making or not making have been extremely harmful to New York state and New York City and that's why we're seeing among the worst on planet earth and that's why the disparity is there because we do not Christina you can act open up and actually we just never adapted even as we got the information coming before that you have there's one small change you could make or enact tomorrow that you think would have a a big impact what would that be what we have to be honest about where we are the mistakes that we made and dedicated resource and funding to those communities immediately the virus doesn't discriminate but our responses and policies do and they have we just have to acknowledge that so when we look at the budget with the governors have cut Medicaid and trying to cut them to handle it out more and you look at the city budget when the mayor is trying to cut every single you job that exists in the summer while leaving NYPD homeless we know what happened so we must have a Phil Simmons that's a hundred percent but we have to use all the tools that we have so we need the government to look at every rate options will people own luxury yachts and planes left little who acted look at and he has secondly we have to get the resources for testing and contact tracing do begin mentally particularly is committed to working order while making sure that the information on the contact rate you've never used for third party never use for anyone besides people who are how to follow HIPAA laws and we can assure people that will be used for anything else psychotic and eventually
Concepts of a Psychedelic Trip P. 2
"All right. Welcome to the dirt show. I'm higher peaks Innocent Lady Sativa and welcome to part two of components of a psychedelic trip. I hope you enjoyed the first part. Like I said before. We're GONNA go into some really crazy stuff now. Last time we finished off with geometry Which is my favorite and I think that the eight levels kind of explains in eight B. I guess nine levels nine said nine eight plus but yeah I? I think that explains kind of the profound part of the trip. Which is I feel like the most important. But this time we're going to start off with actually fractionals. That's another common component in this visual geometry. These are a concept that exists within mathematics and can be described as complex patterns that repeat infinitely into themselves allowing for the same self similar image to be found no matter how far you zoom into any of the image. I think most commonly. That's what I see the geometry that I see as fractionals if you look that up online Google images. Those are pretty similar. Now good but really creepy is about an hour ago. I opened my phone and I was on a Frac Dole geometry page and I don't know how it got there. Is that not creepy? Yeah see there watching and listening always you know but hopefully maybe they'll raise our our stats right all right. All right specialties in law enforcement out there you know we hope you're inflating our stats for us. We appreciate it. Good looking out to your friends but fractionals. Yaffe look those up and actually I just want to make a point here. I hope I do. Not messes word up. But I believe it's ship bows ship. He Bows Arch Abell Shiva. Bows that the first one if you look that up that is there's I bleeding. It's an Amazon try or it's a tribal group that has been known to use. Iowa for a long time not like Amazon. Like you go online and buy something like actual Amazon guys. Maybe I don't quote me on that. I know you've been stuck inside for a long time but there's other things called like the Amazon. This is this is not mail order. I O Oscar right but if you look that up on Google that art diffraction images that kind of artwork is almost dead on so if you looked at At sperling cool too yeah and those tribes. They are Like I said well known for a long long long time of doing Iowa and they have. That's their artwork. And so it but if you look at it they've really kind of nailed it how it looks. Yeah good examples there. They had good notebooks in their head in their head. And I guess the stick in a piece of wood. I don't know I don't know. Yeah all right. A hallucinatory state. The fourth century effect is perhaps the most profound subjective sensory effect that the psychedelic experience has to offer there manifested as two distinct affects which come in a variety of different intensities external hallucinations. Right which we know. That self explanatory internal hallucinations. Which again is a self explanatory? Well it's closed. I think it's open Iverson's closed is where we're getting at here Maybe why I didn't put the definitions in. But maybe internal like I could see like I was building an insane asylum with my eyes open staring at something. Yeah so I still building stuff but my eyes were opened. I will see it. That's why I said it was at the ocean. Because the glow stick I was going back and forth and staring at anyways Enron experience. Yep exactly transforming hallucinations internal external the and the transforming hallucinations. Remember are things changing shape from one thing to another so it could be from a solid object to geometry or could be you know from solid object to another solid object But that could be both internal and external and I don't know but a lot of times they separate the transforming part from the other hallucinations right and I don't know why other than the fact that it's maybe it's more of a true hallucination in the sense that you can something can change into something else. That's real like a table. Could turn into a chair. Say Yeah Okay. Go ahead as these states of imagery become increasingly elaborate proportional to dosage of course They eventually become all encompassing full-fledged. Three D. Hallucinations which surround the person in fashion similar to dreams. This creates a feeling that one has broken through quote unquote into another reality. The things which occur within this perceived alternate reality can be anything but generally fall under common archetypes such as contact with Automata not automaton autonomen. I don't know what the fuck I was auto bought. It is not an Autobahn Thomas. Entities imagined landscapes and scenarios. That can seem so. Unlike anything previously experienced that they are in all probability untranslatable into English so in other words we wouldn't understand them. It would only be something. Our Mind could understand yen. Unfortunately I think a good portion of upper doses of psychedelics are like that even I cannot describe the geometry that I see does a really good job. But it doesn't you don't you don't really understand the complexity and just like your whole don't you don't understand imagery just like a book. Anybody who reads the book will get something different out of it. Everybody will picture a person in the book differently. Good analogy I'm sorry but here's a good example twilight to me. I don't think the characters matched up as the movies. So there we go. I me mentally. I thought of somebody completely different for everybody in there. It's just you know the way. The book explains something compared to what somebody else season their minds. I you can't make somebody see what you see. No you can't explain what you see to somebody exactly the way you see it. No imagination is so I mean that's just it. It's imagination. That could be anything. Some people have it. Some people don't And I think like what we're talking about. Here's what you've experienced you'd have to either be high doses of You know acid. Lsd Or say mushrooms. But you know like emt trip this will be common in regular EMT trip and the Thomas entities which we're GonNa get into seems to be really common with DMC and again all. These things are so abstract right but not only is the person who's under the influence comprehending it in their own way. I mean there's got to be so much influence on how they comprehend that vision. Yeah it'd be again like use like looking at a painting. What you see is going to be different than what I see Even though we're looking at the same colors in the same picture yeah. We're going to comprehend in two different ways. It might be pleasing to you and I think it's shit this is. This is so Gordon Ramsay shutout. The content of these experiences are often described to fill transcendental mystical spiritual and religious in nature regardless of the trippers theistic beliefs. And that's important to realize because it's saying that it basically supersedes anything that may have been there before The tripper demis each individual person. There you go. Yeah but also to like I had said in this geometry plus Dosages these are the transcendental so for a lot of people they might take an eighth and not necessarily hit that point epiphany of any sorts. They might not see an insane asylum like yes time. Yeah so that's you. My immunity was apparently a lot lower than because I cannot do that now. I can barely last time last time we did do it like actually solidly tried to do. It was when I was watching Harry Potter. And it took me until you were almost out of your trip in order to get into mine well again. That's the thing it's you can try to time things. It's it pissed me off and the only reason why you continue to trip is because I turned on Harry Potter. And you're like oh I just remember. You were tripping out next to me like the blanket all the way up to your chin staring at the TV. And I was all sitting up with the pillows in my arms crying because it was so cool. Yeah just because you're crying in the corner doesn't mean it's a bad trip.
How false negatives are complicating COVID-19 testing
"Do we know the false positive and false negative rates on the testing that we're doing now false positive with this test should be near zero it's very hard to get a false positive when you're looking for in our day so a PCR the false negative results for anywhere up to I would say twenty to thirty percent potentially if you have less symptoms your false negative rate is higher if you have more symptoms your false negative rate is lower but again those are estimates it's very hard to know what is you know true you know in order to get false negative false positive you need a what is the truth and so the problem is we don't have a denominator of truth yet to know to go back so it's all estimates you know in order to know I I need to know yes they really did have it and you said no well I have that in some cases but most cases I don't have the follow up to know what real ground truth was so my god is it'll be twenty to thirty percent false negative but again it's just I got right now okay so to the public health protocols do we have in your mind any options beyond stay at home social distancing is that our only option at the moment or are there others no I mean I mean you had the mayors of New York City and Los Angeles and now that we want you to wear masks this is a predominately droplets spread disease you know when you stand in front of a mirror and brief that fog is droplets so are breeding creates droplets with your fact anyway you're symptomatic or not you create droplets when you wear a bandanna tonight it will when you were in ninety five master limited supply but when you went mera homemade mask you basically block those droplets you where that data and breathe on a beer you're not gonna see the fog and so if we all work and then as we go out we would stop yes you need to go out to go shopping other things we would stop spread of the virus period also and it would be a hundred percent that would add more to it the more we can get so that you know the number of people the person affected it whenever one person is affected if in fact more than one other person the virus will continue to grow if it's less than one that number is low then the virus will grow more slowly Peter away we have to stop it like that so our behavior change has to do more than just staying inside when we have to go out and anybody who's out whether you're at working as cash register an EMT you need to wear something so you can't spread if you're a symptomatic and and if we had if we had massive testing with that give us more options or with the public to call be exactly the same you know we have this thing that we're very proud of the United States call privacy rules in Korea if you're tested all of your neighbors get a tax Hey David an apartment three B. has corona so they know to avoid me and they know who's affected and they actually trace where I went in anybody I talked to my father would back the week before who David just meet let me test them to see if they're positive or not they actually say screw privacy let's look at all of that data Google announced today that they have the data from Google maps of who's effectively doing social distance and out what city and they're giving it to the city's not releasing a public which I think they should but wouldn't it be amazing to know who's following the rules and not and then the ones who aren't we have to figure out different rules to enact because we all have to do we all have to think is one to get rid of this this is an amazing part of humanity we have to go back to being a community it's a new change our mentality and our behavior that we really haven't thought about for decades well I'm wondering yes this gets severe enough that if Americans will it wouldn't would welcome the kind of things are doing in South Korea and Singapore and elsewhere I hope so but you know what it's going to mean is we have to treat people differently which again we don't respond well to if you have no immunity your seventy I'm to say you have to stay home you can't go out if you're twenty rolled and again you have no immunity you can't go out to the other twenty year old can people to say No Way I have my rights I want to do this I don't want people to know I had the virus or I could have spread I spread it to somebody else it's my right to keep my health care information private I don't want you to my my health care data to figure out who gets sick and who doesn't this is my data you know if I asked you to get a mortgage you could meet every financial record you have a you don't think twice and I say let me use your healthcare data to better treating humanity in the rest of the world you say No Way is my health
Chicago - Loved Ones Worried About Shortage Of Protective Gear For First Responders
"Or police officers or fireman or EMT is the proper protection against the coronavirus as they are on the front lines of our city every single day now there's a shortage of personal protective equipment clothing masks gloves wipes and other protective clothing and while the announcement this week of offering hotels to our first responders to protect their families we need to be providing them what they need up front to protect themselves from this deadly virus L.

Jondi Whitis Energy Psychology, Tapping with Kids, & EFT Tools
"Excited to have with me today. John D. Whiteness. And we are going to talk about energy. Psychology says. She's a master trainer and practitioner in Energy Psychology. And I know we've talked about on the pipe as before. Eft But she's also going to talk to us that as well as t t t and the other one is tft which I have honestly not heard of So I'm excited to learn as well so welcome Chandi thanks. It's a pleasure to be here and you started talking. We talked to vista few minutes before I hit record about Energy Psychology. In where that what it is great. Well I'm just a real swift ride through the ages about five thousand years ago or sell. Who's county Asian medicine primarily Chinese medicine? came up with the concept of the energy body and the idea of balance. Everybody's seeing the yen young of balance right and so one of the things that the Chinese figured out way back was that we have life force within us. We are made of it and we have it within US and when it becomes imbalanced that is sort of the bottom line of Asian medicine is to re balance the life force otherwise known as cheap and so thousands of years later finally catching up and so we have integrated this into our western medicine. Traditions and perspectives. And we call this area a very large umbrella. We call it energy medicine or energy. Psychology there rather interchangeable terms really Neither is quite right but Somehow energy all of its own We would probably get lots of Exxon mobile ads if we didn't specify so we're not yet to good at specifying what we mean. And so we've designated these two areas so far So since the eighties we have really been working on this area and it expands very very quickly because it is part of the mind body connection which almost everybody on the planet so far and it's an expansive dynamic area of inquiry which tells us about that the marriage of consciousness and physical health and this thing we called emotional health or wellbeing and so all three of these tenants are sort of carried together in crucible of energy work that we do in the eighties. There were three scientist Let me just rephrase that three practitioners that were really into scientific inquiry about what could be better for my clients and that's kind of people we like right. They're always driving. Find something new and wonderful for their clients. Hell and so there was a chiropractor Anna psychologist and psychotherapist and independently as scientists. Want to be all three of them determined that if they took these ancient Asian principals they were finding out about about bodies cheat and balance and manual stimulation of the Meridians which is just a fancy word for that the veins highways which life force or chee travels throughout the body if they were doing that simultaneously with their other endeavor. Cairo Presser Psychology. They got a much bigger and more positive outcome and so our tradition. That I'm talking about today is really derivative of Dr Callahan's. He had this idea that together. These things could be called thought field. Therapy T. F. T. And over the years it was just actually for a professionals in the mental health area. One of his students though was the Stanford trained engineer call Gary Crag and turned out that he was really good engineering student but what he was really interested in was human engineering and so he started taking every course he could find and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal empowerment and looking at all the different ways that one could elevate themselves and their health and he decided to take Dr Callahan's work and squash it into an elegantly simple little quirks and he called it. Fta for emotional freedom techniques and so there's a couple radical things that we love him for He's still very much with us. But one of the things is the ability to send the size this little unique down sized reverse engineered packet that called. Eft Much smaller easier to use for the world than its predecessor. The other thing was he had this idea that he expressed about all negative emotions were actually energy disruption and people went and so you know he's he's probably not still out there explaining that concept but the basic idea including of my direct mentor. A Gwyneth. Maas is it's about a consciousness of a disruption in your energy system which is right. There is some thing that happens. That alert you to the fact there is a disruption in your equilibrium. And that's as they say where it all began and this is what we do in energy psychology. Since that time. I'll give you that thirteen. You ask about T- t TS stands for trauma tapping technique and it is a derivative that is directly from Roger Callahan and Gary Craig and comes together in another kind of algorithm which is closer actually detail but its value as that. My friends go NEELA. Calm and youth. Sandstrom are Swedish and they have spent half their lifetime anyway in the Western diaspora of refugee camps and children of war. I displaced persons and they have spread this work. He t t to everyone they found in the beauty of it is they decided because there are well over three hundred dialects that they would never be able to master those or be understood. Etcetera Etcetera. Bingo they had this great idea. Let's make wordless. Let's just do an algorithm or prestige and make it wordless and we'll tell people through a confederate a compatriot a local a guide. We'll tell them to please the symbol. Everybody and we'll tell them to please think about that. Which troubles you and while you hold. That thought see going back to thought. Fail therapy while you hold. That thought we want you to do this. Little Algorithm of manual stimulation. And big. Go you'll feel better and so now you have all three Ts. That's fantastic ahead Lorna Mine. Wiser on and she also talked about She's a friend and the beautiful work that they're doing you know particularly or it's telling viewers if they want to look into it's peaceful heart dot s. e. which dancer Sweden. Okay wonderful thank you. Yes sure well I have utilized. Eft Ella my own healing journey started with em Dr Therapy and Process TRAUMAS I found. Emt A lot of people talk about emt are being invasive meaning that I had to return back to traumas. Eft My understanding is you know. It's less invasive. You don't necessarily always have to go back to the traumas but more about the feeling that you're having once being triggered what's what's the rising right. It's a much gentler technique and its beauty. Is this if you asked me which had Its beauty is this. Eft can be used at one of three graduated levels. The first one Gary Craig took it from licensor and gave it to the people. It's the people tool K. So we can use it for self care which is huge when we can take something out of the health professions and use it ourselves. We become empowered. I this way that we can use. That is called peer to peer. And the most beautiful thing I do. We have the teacher. Practice comes or social worker. Practice comes is I will show them how to support one another and they need never know what's going on with the other person. It's beautiful thing. The third level is much like an iceberg way underneath the water line. You see that. This tool is so deeply profoundly therapeutic and there's nowhere that I've ever found it cannot go or what it cannot do but that's the kind of work that would be done in very practiced hands certified hand people who have studied for a very long time. Why not because of the degree? It's because of their commitment to keeping their client safe anti going at a pace that respects an honors the client and keeps them safe and how to handle things when things get too hot or too overwhelming so all of those years of practice have to do with really keeping people
Officials: 13 People, Including 6 Police Officers, Injured In Raging Fire At King Of Prussia Apartment Building
"A large fire ripped through an apartment building in king of Prussia last night more than ten people including six police officers and an EMT were injured fire officials say the flames broke out just before ten thirty inside the kings would apartments on west Byron please lower Merion police help get people the safety officer say
Into Clinton Lake
"When they got back to the apartment Amanda plan to Cook Orange Chicken for dinner tired and hungry she changed her mind though and she suggested that they go out to dinner it was payday so Amanda could afford to treat the children by going out Oh so they went to the shack for dinner. This was a diner well-known to Amanda since childhood because she'd grown up in this area going out sometimes awkward for them though because Maurice was almost always the only non white person in the restaurant this was a very white community and he was African American and there were still people in Clinton who looked very negatively at this interracial couple the waitress would later recall feeling some tension between the couple to that night they had a disagreement about what to do after dinner Maurice wanted to rent movies but Amanda was the one who suggested that they take the kids to Clinton Lake for some quality family time yes she gave Murray's directions to get to the lake then it was the first time they are gone they're together Maurice was seen driving fast Z. past the parking area and he drove down a hill to the boat ramp with the car facing the lake and the front bumper fairly close to the water's edge which is a strange thing to do if you think about it why would you park there her war wonder you know where would you this no reason at all no this you would think the kids were gonna go in play on the embankment and get their energy out you know that's what you do with Little Boys Road Park and let them play yeah celebres brutal weird Sir yes yes so this is where a man does version of events begins to differ from those of Maurice Although Amanda Would Change Her story multiple all times let's move to a mand is called nine one one after the children were submerged in the lake and then we can get into what she told police in her multiple interviews and what Maurice told the police so this nine one one call is kinda difficult to make out now the first thing you here's Amanda screaming that her children are in her car in the lake but then after a minute or so maurice takes the phone and it takes a while for the nine one one operator to figure out what Amanda was saying but Amanda stays on the phone and Marie seems to be by her side for the entirety of the call and this is where they lose me because there's no way to live them should be up by the phone while the children are drowned or wouldn't you think rookie drives save kids absolutely in this wasn't that the league is not like the car sank and forty feet of water or anything like that now you could almost just stand up in it now it was murky but we'll get into it it's just is that's where it loses me I can't believe it mark here so I would say that amandas emotional state is up for interpretation she does seem Ranna and she's screaming Marie sounds pretty calm but it's hard to understand a lot of what she's saying news revolution through it repeatedly it's tough to decipher what's being said well and it would just be common sense for one person to be on the phone and the other person to beginning the kids out of the car yeah absolutely don't need to people on the phone saying come here for help exactly right right so in the first emergency workers arrived the scene Amanda appeared to be hysterical she was pointing at the lake and jumping up and down screaming Maurice was holding her quite possibly holding her back with his arms rounded torso and they were about seventy yards from where the car went under dewitt county sheriff's Department Sergeant Timothy Collins was the first one there who said the car it was under water but it wasn't very far from the boat ramp the nineteen ninety seven cutlass had got in front words and the front of the car was in seven feet of water and trump was in only about four feet of water so that deep at all not at all so collins who immediately removed his gun belt and ran into the water it's pretty murky here you really couldn't see much of anything so he had a feel along the side of the car in order to grasp the front door handle and this is on the passenger inside the car this door open pretty easily but he's also noticing that he's still got his bulletproof vest on with his uniform which was weighing him down down quite a bit so he's swam out of the lake remove the vest and then another deputy took her car door so ah I I thought well why we need to take the vest off in the water but then if there's another deputy right there I can kind of see it but if it's possible to take it off and not Li the water that would make more sense this is a situation where seconds count never gonNA figure there was another guy where there yeah okay now he she was floating face down in the front of the Car Collins Ran Kelly to the paramedics who were now waiting on the ramp ready to help then an ambulance act with two EMT's one of them waited in and took Christopher out of the car mouth-to-mouth was performed as the EMT carried him out of the lake he was unconscious as the other two kids and he was vomiting repeatedly which made it very difficult to give him oxygen and maintain an airway and so the emergency workers are trying to resuscitate Kalian Christopher and another emt pulled Austin from the car so he is put on the ground on shore for CPR as the rescuers worked on the other two kids in the ambulance so now the sun's going down Larry's continue need to hold Amanda back near the pay phone the ambulance with Kalian Christopher took off for the hospital and rescue workers made the decision to transport Austin in the Fire Departments Suv so one firefighter drove that vehicle while a second firefighter continued to perform CPR it actually take in less than two minutes emergency workers to arrive at that scene and this should have been soon enough to save them if a man had made the nine one one immediately but it was really difficult to determine how long the children had been underwater and they were not responding to resuscitation efforts ed you have any comments on how they should have responded if they'd only been in the water for a few minutes or do you think it's very won't convert variable yeah but still if if the car went in to the lake in the parents or mother called immediately and it took on a couple of minutes so that sounds like within five or ten minutes well she would tell the police fifteen which is still way too long yeah yeah it's afterwards so those are couple of factors but did the biggest thing is how long were they in the water and this letter was not called no seventy something degrees so a deputy took Maurice and abandoned his patrol car and raced to the hospital he was really doing all he could to get her to the hospital glad to be with their kids and also so that she could give medical staff any crucial information they might need but Maurice actually asked the deputy to slow down on they were travelling at one hundred miles per hour with the sirens on now that would be looked at suspiciously why the hell would you say that were I don't know I wouldn't be see can't you go any faster yeah any they've got the sirens on so cars are moving out of the way that's just one thing that is Weird word and there will be more

When my brother was a junior in high school he decided to stay home when my parents sister and I went on a little Lake Day a few hours away <hes> just when we were about to get ice cream. My mom got a call from my end. This is what I heard what he's where is he okay. He did what Oh my God okay. We'll be there too few hours so it turns out my seventeen year old weather and a group of his pals were hanging out in one of of their female friends. Nice ass wealthy neighborhoods filming a movie in this movie. They were pretending to kidnap the girl. Well girlfriend had been taking acting acting since she was eight and pulled out all her girl they dragged her into the car kicking and screaming and then sped away the girl's neighbor saw this and immediately called nine one to report her. Oh kidnapping shout shout out to the neighbor for calling nine one one and asking questions later while the police wasted no time put out an amber alert and shut down the highways. They pulled over my brother and his friends and arrested them. Oh my they brought them to jail and we picked him up after we finished our ice cream looking back on it now even even though it was a pain in the ass for my idiot brother and my parents. I'm super glad that neighbor took action when she thought she saw something happening and the police reacted so quickly and took it so seriously if my brother was a real kidnapper they would have saved a girl's life. I don't think they're ever charges filed against my brother and his friends but I was only in the forest grade so I was dumb. He's thirty now and still basically dumb teenager. He hasn't kidnapped anymore. Girls so we are seeing big improvements stays sexy and always tell your neighbors before you kidnap doc your friends shelby shells.

I have lots of stories from both of these but the ones that keep me up at night the ones from the morgue noche but <hes> I have seen it all but my favorite is about what I accidentally brought home from an autopsy. This summer was disgustingly hot as we all know which lead to some particularly unique circumstances for us at the morgue contrary contrary to popular belief more are actually pretty clean and we use enough bleach that it doesn't smell too horrible so when I walked in the door and immediately gagged. I knew it had to be bad. We had a case in which is something on us too but what I wasn't expecting was all the little critters during the autopsy. A few hundred maggot started dropping to the floor okay gross but no big deal. Here's where it hits the fan. A fucking mouse leaps out of the body bag and onto the floor. I can handle anything except for rodents. I built to the other side of the room and the little mouse's else's darting around searching for a place to hide. So where does you decide to go right towards me. Great thankfully my shrieks of fear scared it off. Can you imagine being a morgue worker and an an T and and you've seen so much shit.

Nevada job applicants can skip marijuana testing
"Earlier this month. And devante became the first state to protect job applicants most than at least from being denied a job if they test positive for marijuana marijuana's legal for recreational use in eleven states across the country, but activists have been calling for more protections for people who legally use it rod on the line to talk through, what this law means Nevada and beyond is Katherine Harris, she's gla sell fellow in drug policy at the Baker institute at Rice University. Welcome to take away Catherine. Thank you for having me. What motivated this law, Nevada? Well, I think the laws motivated by the fact that the state two years ago, legalized adult used marijuana, and I think increasingly there has been a recognition that there is conflict between laws that legalize marijuana use on the one hand and then still. Allow for employers to discriminate against employees for the use of what is now considered a legal drug. So I think in Nevada that conflict is recognized in that village relation wasn't attempt to address that conflict. So what's the argument for preventing employers from denying employment to Java applicants do test positive? Well, the main argument now is that it's a it's a legal substance. And so people in states, where it's legal people are allowed to use it in the same way that people are allowed to consume alcohol when they're not on the job with alcohol. If someone shows up to work drunk can be fairly easy to detect their impairment, right away. You don't necessarily need a test with marijuana. Sometimes it's difficult which is why employer typically rely on drug tests, but those tests don't actually test for impairment tests for use in general. And so they're not really good measure, whether someone's impaired on the job. And so the argument is that those shouldn't be used, especially in states where that uses considered legal. Some job categories are left out of this law. What are those categories and wire implores allowed to still test allocating those feels? Yes, so the fields that are left out our firefighters EMT's and other jobs that revolve around public safety. And so there's some discussion left in the law for employers to interpret what that means for them in whether particular jobs that they have involve a public safety risks other things that can be included, our jobs related to transportation because those jobs can still be required under federal law to have joke free workplace. I mean things like truck drivers bus drivers other large transportation jobs are there, certain categories of workers. Whom drug testing impacts the most. Yes. So I mean, certainly. The ones the people that are most impacted are going to be jobs in, like in warehouses, or transportation jobs where employers can argue that there's an immediate public safety concern. They're concerned about their liability, for example, if they have a guy on a operating crane, or forklifts, you know, they are concerned about impairment, in cases like that because they're concerned about workplace injuries so jobs in those fields are going are tend to be the most impacted already by drug testing. An in general, I think you do see a difference between what we would typically consider quote unquote, blue collar jobs, being more likely to be tested, then Johnson more professional

"Proposition. Eleven would legally require that private sector emergency ambulance employers. Excuse me, make that employees remain on duty during their meal and rest breaks, the private ambulance industry, which responds to seventy five percent of the state's emergency calls wrote the measure in response to ambulance employees attempts to negotiate new industry standards. Supporters say the mission merely codifies existing practice and is more cost. Effective. Opponents argue respondents need some breaks to mitigate stress and take issue with the industry essentially writing its own law. Joining us to talk about prop eleven for this first half hour form escape a health reporter, April Dembosky, welcome where Facebook Italian. Thank you. And Jason Berlin is also with us in studio. He is in favor of this proposition. He's executive director of United EMS workers this local for nine one one of AS CME he and they actually oppose proposition. Let me get this straight. They are in favor of proposition. He's here in essentially to speak. No, sir. We're actually an opposition. You are opposed Guiseley post. Okay. I wanna make sure we had the opposition right there. And let's get the proponent, right? That's Carol Meyer who joins us by phone. Former director of Los Angeles County emergency medical services agency, and they are indeed in support of proposition eleven Carol Meyer. Welcome to the program. Thank you very much. Glad to have you here. Let me begin April with you. And let's begin by sort of an epiphany. We're talking about with this measure calls for you've got EMT and paramedics on required breaks now. And the fact that matters, it's a high stress job. And most of them say we need these brakes. So what changes right? So it's one of those confusing measures where it's unclear what changes there's a status quo, which is how the industry operates now where EMT's in paramedics remain on call when they take a break. They have to keep their radio on their on duty. Just in case some kind of emergency comes through, and then proposition eleven would basically keep the status quo in place, and that raises the question will then why do we need proposition eleven am? I can talk a little bit about the history of how we got here. I'd like you to do that. Because it goes back to two thousand sixteen California Supreme Court decision. Exactly. So in that case, it was a case about security guards who also have to stay on. Call while they're on break, and the supreme court ruled in that case, look, basically, if you have to stay on call during a break, it's not a real break and they've ruled in favor of the security guards that they should be allowed to turn their radios off. And so the balance companies saw this ruling and realized we think this is going to apply to us. And so. You know, they think that that is going to present a public safety risk that they, you know, EMT's paramedics need to keep their radios on in order to respond to emergencies. Well, employers and employees went to the legislature to try to work on a carve out so that EMT's could stay on call during their breaks. And what the ambulance companies wanted was the status quo stay on call for everything. But what the paramedics an EMT said. Hey, look, we need some kind of middle ground here. We can't be on call for everything. This is a really high stress job. What if we find a middle ground where you know will respond to the biggest emergencies if a kid is choking, two blocks away from my ambulance. I'm gonna go I'm gonna go to that call, but for the less urgent emergencies. Maybe you guys can call the next closest ambulance when the unions got involved in this too. But yeah, this was the unions and the companies, but also there's a whole question of lawsuit immunity, which comes up in this measure. Let's talk. About that. Sure. So. You know, when that ruling came down for security guards in two thousand sixteen there were couple outstanding lawsuits already on behalf of paramedics in EMT's. There have been some new ones since that are basically testing whether this ruling for security guards will apply to paramedics and EMT's. And one of the reasons ambulance companies are backing proposition eleven is to basically stave off that ruling and say, no, this is going to be the rule. We don't wanna wait to see what the court says there's also a labor law that plays into this labor law, the talks about the brakes, and how does that fit into the measure not fit into the major? So, you know, my understanding is that the Augusta's ruling wasn't interpretation of the of the existing labor law in California, which says that works supreme court ruling the supreme court ruling. Yeah. That workers are entitled to break they're entitled to. A half hour break, and they're entitled to two ten minute respirators during their shift that is Californian labor law. Well, let me go to Carol Meyer. I because we go to the support measures. I and she's former director of the LA county emergency medical services agency, you're in favor of this measure, and you put this measure forward, and it has roused a good deal of controversy because it was written by the milli- industry, which is a little bit unusual in itself. Well, absolutely. We are in favor of it. In an emergency seconds can be the difference between life and death. So probably Levin ensures that the closest ambulance can respond when a patient calls nine one one it established us into law the longstanding industry that the pain private EMT's and paramedics to remain reachable during their work breaks in the case of an emergency is accomplished just like firefighters and police officers, it's really that simple. And in many cases, the private EMT's and paramedics are in the same station as the public firefighters. So you're saying, this is a public safety issue, aren't you? Absolutely. This is a public safety issue. Operated for the last fifty years, and what we're trying to do is put into law. The fact that this requires operators to pay MTA's in paramedics while they're on their break and it ensures that the closest ambulance can respond when a patient calls nine one one and you're concerned about this Jason Berlin, he has to do with for an industry not being able to write a labor law actually this portion of the initiative or the the proposition we're actually not opposed to and we actually support. But I would like to just say that just because it's a long standing fifty year. Practice doesn't make doesn't necessarily equate to it being a legal practice. What's your opposition based on largely then I mean to me? Initiative to set the voice is this is not about codifying what's in state law. The state laws the exact opposite of how the meal periods are prescribed in this proposition. This proposition is about section eight eight nine which redefines the meal periods, and then declares it as existing state law and can be applicable to all actions, pending on commenced after October twenty fifth of seventeen which is a liability protection clause for a MR and only AM are as the sole author of this initiative. Well, you're also looking at more training for TS. According to this measure, aren't you? It is in the initiative, but I would like to say that our providers in the state of California are some of the best in the nation. I have an opportunity to travel all throughout the state of California working with the MS systems and our providers train every year through urban security area initiative grants through department of homeland security are providers in my members just participated in urban shield in the bay area, which is the largest anti-terrorism active shooter MCI drill in the nation. We do this every year, and it's a matter of practice. I've been doing this for twenty five years. So just because it's here doesn't change the practice. It's a current practice that we already do in preparedness April. Let me go back to you. Don't we maybe need a system that rates levels of emergency. A lot of calls come from people who think they're an emergency and art or call in because a mental illness or other kinds of factors. Well, I think this is one of the sticking points of the practicality of what the the two sides were talking about in the legislature. If EMT's say, you know, let's find a middle ground. Then the ambulance company the ambulance companies say well how how does it dispatcher? No, like, what is sort of a a lower level emergency. And then in some cases. So the way it was defined in the legislature was an emergency that requires sirens to be going on the on the ambulance. But then you know, you have to kind of sometimes way that that that's a risk to public safety to also drive with the sirens on. So sometimes you have to weigh that. So there was a lot of confusion practically speaking about how you rate what level of emergency. It is. Listen to this Carol Meyer, Greco ambulance companies providers already look at various calls, and if they see that it appears at a call is very low level, they leave the company providers on their break. The problem is is that we don't know when somebody calls if they're description of an emergency is accurate. So we need to be able to respond. Regardless and there's no way to put into categories. What's a lights and sirens? Call versus what you know a code to hall without license sirens. And so this is a public safety issue. It's it's an issue in this proposition will not only protect the EMT's and paramedics, but more importantly it protects the public that argumentation Berlin. Well, I would say that that that's partially correct there. There are medical priority dispatch centers throughout the state of California that triage calls based on what the caller says. But one of the issues that we had through the legislature is that's not a standard practice throughout all dispatch centers in California. And so through that committee process, we were working with all of the stakeholders to try and figure out what the best mechanism was to protect the public safety ensure appropriate and timely responses, but it wasn't until the author of this. Initiative did not get to negotiate his immunity clause that they backed out of that conversation and then author this initiative, so there's still a process that we could have done to ensure the public safety and provide for the rest and meal periods for providers. Well, let me provide listeners an opportunity to weigh in here because we do want to hear from you. If you have questions or comments on prop eleven which recovering is part of our election. Coverage would require EMT's and paramedics to be on call during breaks. What are your thoughts?.

"Are you comfortable talking about. Going to her place. I mean, on some level, you know, I wrote the book and I wrote that out in great detail and I went to EM DR for the trauma of this memory. So I'm comfortable getting into it a little bit. I, you know, I went to find her and I walked up the stairs, and there she was lying in bed with a gun in her hand and having taken her own life. And you know. Every word to describe the trauma is fitting. It was total and complete, and I called my sister and you know, this is the flash ambulances. EMT's family pouring in dogs, howling and crying, and you know neighbors wondering what's going on this summer had been really hot. All these wildfires in this like just storm moved in just douse the neighborhood for thirty minutes, and we're all just like that's Lydia. Like there. She goes saving the world saving the world given us one last little dose. Yeah. And then it was just, you know, a health scape for months the the moment when you saw her, you describe in the book physically, what you? Yes experience can. Yeah. Can you share that? Yeah, I remember writing and remember feeling that you know, they say you go out of your body and that moment. But in that exact moment, there was no out of body. It was the most.

"Okay. We're back with John and Neo Martensson who just took the great American roadtrips date gotten the test lie drove up to Canada and around down the western coast back to Phoenix. What's it like spending a month in a in a car with your dad? It's interesting, and it's not something that you can experience without just doing it. Fantastic time. He he had planned out a lot of different activities. And and things that I would like as well as things that he would like we got to know each other. I was a bonding experience that that was my first reaction whole thing. What a fabulous opportunity for definitely know. There's there's things now that we've discussed with each other and conversations we've had that we just we wouldn't have had without this trip. And I think that was the idea I think that's why he planned the trip or at least one of the big reasons, and I think that was successful in that regard. So were you up for this from the gecko or did you had to be coaxed into it? You know, I I haven't here seventeen. It's summer schools out. It's summer after summer school's back. And that's all I, you know, that's what you get. But. You know after the end of it, and you know, even even pretty shortly into the trip. I come to a point where this is going to be good experience. And after on the tail end of it. I don't regret anything. I think it was a fantastic time. And I'm glad that I went and I recommend that anyone else. Do the same John. I I envy you this. I know my my sons are if you're years ago there, I got this place in Mexico on the beach and finally after all these years of being diffident about it. One of my kids get I want to go down there. And I said great. We'll we'll do. There's no no dad what I mean is I want to go down there with my friends. You stay here. We go down there. So is this Neo this impacted your thinking about career or in any way shaded that you're a high school senior? Yeah. Yeah. To the school at plug plug to my school. Yeah. Well, you know, I actually I move around school a lot and I've been online, but I will give a plug to west Meck. So anyone out there who's in high school and is interested in a career technical field like aviation maintenance EMT? Mt. All of the technical side of things give west Michalak. It's a great program. That's what I'm looking at. I've got my pilot's license. I'm getting my aircraft mechanic license. I want to do something in the aviation field. And we did actually on this trip. Talk a lot about the future of electric planes, and and how this trip and how that knowledge can change what I might have wanted to do for the future electric. I've seen an occasional article about electric planes. You think they have a viability? I don't think we'll see boarding from London to Phoenix on an electric seven thirty seven, but they are great cost wise and maintenance wise as far as not burning so much expensive gas and simplicity to operate. So I think there will be definitely a private and a pilot training interest in those talking piper cubs and things like that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. So what what would you guys spoke said, we'll get your number one take away from this experience. My number one. Takeaway. Don't judge book by its cover. I think is is how I would do that. I always seem to think that you know, my my dad is very set in his ways. And he is what he is. And conversations were always a little bit tough. But once you sit down and talk to him, you know, he's not trying to convince me that, you know, gases bad. Everything's bad. You know, we're going to be fine. He just he's interested in the future. And I think a lot of a lot of people are and they come off that way. But they're not talk to people. They're great. Wow. This interesting solar electric guy scene is set in his ways that that's a nice. I think there's been a I guess you grew up with that. It's an assumption. I think I think Michael that's something like. Being a father. And not being wearing the dead hat and home. And when the two of us are out on the road sort of casting the dad hat off and being more the part of the road partner. Yep. An equal an equal relationship. Also reminds me like the theme of I think it was the eighties family ties, you know, the kid rebels by being a Republican. Remember? So what what what are some of the most interesting experiences? You had you guys had a long way must met some people. Get your your car is decked out in all kinds of details and things you were not inconspicuous. No. So you must have encountered people all the time. So what what what what's this? Well, we every time you stop at a super charter, for example. There's usually other tesla people there. So they come in and talk exposed just a couple of when we get back. But it's just a couple of things occurred to me when you're out of super charger. How long does it to the high powered one how long does it take charge? She got an eighty percent charge in thirty minutes. How can I I had an API going on the car throughout the entire trip? So I've collected a lot of data and right now, I'm putting that into a giant report and a white paper. But and just arithmetic I think you're range. You told me is around three hundred miles while the car is advertised with a range of three hundred ten miles, but we got actually closer to three hundred fifty miles. And you get eighty percent of that. So that'd be two fifty to eighty somewhere in that read something in there. And that's enough to get you next station. I assume you mapped out where everything was so actually know. So when you when you plan a trip in a tesla, I mean, there's a few online apps, I think there's three of them and. What part of my my goal. The trip was to prove the accuracy of those online. I'm still kind of doing that. But you know, tesla has an online, and you tell you one one specific example is we wanted to go from Jasper to Kamloops in British Columbia. So. Camus. And according to the tesla, we could not make it there. What do you do under, sir? Give me this is not a hybrid. So you don't have an what what's your what's your plan b when you've got faced with something. So I contacted Facebook groups. Alberta owner tesla owners of Alberta and tesla owners in British Columbia. And I said can we do this trip? And they said, well, you should be able to do it during the summer. You can't do it during the winter. And so I figured what the heck out in the middle of nowhere. Is not very reassuring. We added some excitement to our our day. I wrote I wrote a blog post about this. But anyway, when we got into the car and set the the destination in when we were in Jasper that we're going to Kamloops on the way to Whistler it said, we'd get there with no problem. So the the online app was not accurate to the season. Now you paid for electricity on the trip. I know you did some calculations if you translated that into gas costs. Did you? It.

"To pay for school. Once I get accepted to pay for school, it would be about two hundred thousand dollars to pay for it. Okay. That's why asked you earlier. Have you done everything you needed to do to be hired? You said yes, but you haven't. So you're talking about getting accepted into program right into at PA school program. Okay. What I didn't understand that you told me you were ready to go, so you're not. So I can tell you right now two hundred thousand dollar loan to scare you to the point where you go on doing that. I'm not going to tell you take that on. That's not right. So you're thirty five years old. So let's let's change gears. You're an EMT right now and you really love it. That's what you said. How much you make as an EMT. About forty year. Okay. How much debt do you have to pay off about twenty five? All right. That's doable. You have double income or one income double income. What are your, what your combined income. About fifty five. Okay. So you're forty and she's your wife's make it fifteen. That's my Mike, I'm I'm single. Okay. I'm sorry. The EMT job is the MTO pays forty, and then I teach CPR on the side make about fifteen. When I say combined income, I I assumed your apologize. My apologies. Okay. She make fifty five thousand paying off the twenty-five. You're single that she'd go pretty darn quick. What's your? What's your calendar date that you have at least plan for to pay off all the debt? I'd like to do it in a year. All right, that's fantastic. All right. So that's important reason I walked through that is because we've got to keep that in that number of twelve months of being debt free at the top of your mind, you love being an EMT right now, and and I think it is what is the best path for me to be in patient care. I think it's that big without going into massive debt because because the PA school. I is that something you can do part time over to three year period? No, it's three years full-time. So it's three years fulltime and his two hundred grand. Yeah. Yikes. Well, I look man, you got to options and I see it. You figure out how long it's gonna take you as a single guy to save up two hundred grand. Okay. And I think you get to control that. I know you're thirty five. But the question is in five years at the age of forty. Can you have two hundred grand saved up. Can you get some grant? I don't know you, you know, you need to look into this. What are some ways you can knock that two hundred thousand dollars down. And then how long would it take you to save up the difference? That's one option and you're not too old at forty to do the work you love. So it's reasonable to believe that a single guy who's making fifty five thousand. I think you could find other ways to make more money, but I wonder if you're not looking at being a fireman or you know, what is nursing school is at the same amount of money. Probably maybe half that. Yeah, and I think you can do nursing have part time. You can take nursing school part time, Kenya. Yeah, yeah. I think you have to consider that because because here's what you love you love is your. These were your words. I'm paraphrasing. You love taking care of patients being involved in the care of patients in my right. Well, there's more than one way to do it and you have limited yourself to this point and I'm not criticizing him just telling you what you're where you're at your. You've limited yourself for four years. You've had your, I'll one thing and that's being a physician's assistant. And I, my challenge today is identifying three or four other ways that you can meet that need. See the passion is not always an exact role or an exact career. It's just what it is that you said you did it so beautifully to find it. That's your great passion is helping patients medically though. How're them different ways that you can do that and that you can cash flow. And so we know is there a way for you to move up over the next year in your EMT role where you're moving up in a thority and financially because again, that's speeds up. Everything speeds speeds up. You're paying off debt,.
