Fresh update on "earthquakes" discussed on 90 and Extra Time

"And whitecaps see to. San. Jose earthquakes one. Then yesterday we had. L., traffic oh the La Darby. GotTa look this up but I'm pretty sure that the galaxy have not one more than one match. I think they played a total of ten. I. Think in a pretty sure that Elliot C has the advantage they've won four. Lost, one in the restaurant draws might be eight matches if they played but. I know that the galaxy are not. Doing well in L. Traffic. For one and they're not really doing too well in the League in general, they signed teach Rideau. Everybody thought he was GonNa do well, and he absolutely has not maybe he should've tried to stay in Europe maybe went to Mexico. Someplace else. But playing in La is is definitely not a it's not for him. So let's see we got the look at the top six in eastern conference. We got the Philadelphia Union Toronto FC Columbus. Orlando City NYC, AFC, and then the New England revolution. Top six in the western conference, we got sporting KC on top Seattle sounders Portland Timbers. L. AFC MINNESOTA united in doubtless. So. As the playoffs get closer and closer. We'll see if there's any major shifts in that but. I mean right now, the galaxy. One of the worst record sit on the bottom of the western conference they got eighteen points in eighteen matches. Its that's terrible. So I. Don't know. I mean their season is over basically they're not going to the playoffs but I don't know I just thought never not used to seeing the galaxy of the bottom of the table like that. And if it wasn't for Cincinnati. Elliott would be the worst team in the league. The Colorado rapids have played four fewer matches. THAN THE LA Galaxy. Yet The Colorado rabbits have nineteen points. Ella Galaxy only have eighteen. I mean, I should tell you need to know about the the galaxy at this point. So. Are I'm GonNa take a quick break. Go get something to drink and I'll be back..

Let's Talk Latina Power in This Election

"There's so much at stake in this election and it's hard to really kind of whale it down because I think everybody has their own. Thing that is at stake in this election, you know, some of us have friends or family who are at risk for deportation. If another four years of Donald Trump will mean another four years living in extreme fear and paranoia for some people. It is about health care and access to health care and pre-existing conditions and making sure that we don't need to worry about you know, the doctor that we go to or going into debt because of you know, an emergency a health emergency or putting off a doctor's visit. It is about the economy and it is about coming out of covet and how we respond to the both Health Emergency of prohibit the economic emergency of covid-19. About Latinos and Latinas as other and as people who we should fear not Embrace that is what we are deciding this election whether or not we are going to choose a leader who will bring this country back together or whether we will continue to divide and deflect and blame but this is a time where we are at a pivotal moment. I think we will all remember where we were not just the suggestion but this period of time when we survived it and we look back and we're building the country that we want. Just there's this concept in urban planning which is about resilience that when you have something like a hurricane or an earthquake that decimates a city that the old school model used to be two years old things back to the way they were pre-earthquake pre-hurricane, but that really in as much as there can be a tragedy there can be an opportunity to rebuild things to be bigger and better and more resilient than they were before an opportunity for re-imagination. What would that look like? I think it would look like a place. I always say that it's a place where everyone can make mistakes right now. You have a world in which only some people can make mistakes Latinos certainly cannot make mistakes black people cannot make mistakes and I will know that we have completely re-imagined a world where everybody has opportunity everybody has equal treatment when I'm not worried about being the best or the first or the only because there's so many of us who have had opportunity to realize our dreams and then also like fail you say you never hear stories about like Latino failure because we're not allowed to feel we have to be totally exceptional to get what is available to you know, a lot of people in this country just by being born just by the virtue of their existence. So when I think about how do we get to a place where we're allowed to make mistakes? It's a it's a place where we recognize that all wage. Is valued and the way that we show that value is by making sure it's like paid a minimum wage and people have time off and people have the ability to seek the care that they want. It also means really thinking about the ways in which each of us has the responsibility to make sure that we're trying to leave the world better than we found it off. I think that what we've seen in the context of the pandemic is that our individual decisions we make about our behaviors Ripple out and affects so many other people and so I really believe that if we lived in a world where we thought about how our behavior is affected other people, how are policies affected other people and tried to make sure that we were doing the least amount of charm and enacting the most amount of good that will lead to a more Equitable system that valued care which I think is just like the most most important thing but also really valued inequality. He of expression honestly, I feel like if this time has shown us anything. It's that these systems aren't working for literally anyone and if we don't really imagine those things we may not have the kind of country. But also Planet literally the planet that we want and need in in deserve.

Landmark Court Ruling In Japan Holds Government Accountable For 2011 Nuclear Meltdown

"The Japanese government and a nuclear power plant operator have appealed a landmark court ruling. The ruling holds them responsible for the country's worst ever nuclear accident. The 2011 Fukushima meltdown was triggered by a huge earthquake and tsunami. But as NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul plaintiffs are concerned that justice is being delayed once again. Cheering broke out outside the high court in the city of Sendai, about 60 miles north of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant last month. Too many people surprise the court's ruling held the central government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, which runs the plant equally responsible for the accident. Plaintiffs argued that scientists had warned the government in 2000 to that a major tsunami could hit the area. The court said in its caving verdict that the government failed to take actions. She'll sort of Colonel when you go Oh, God. The government. Despite its position is regulator just let TEPCO do Is it pleased and let it put off safety measures? It was gross negligence, and it was an attitude Unbefitting, a regulatory agency. That was Takashi Nakajima, paraphrasing the court's verdict. He's a leader among the nearly 3600 plaintiffs in the case. Sendai Court or did the government and TEPCO to pay them $9.6 million in compensation double with a lower court had ruled three years ago. Many people in Nakajima's community near Fukushima fled their homes. He says he filed the lawsuit. Basically, just to say, Give me back my former life Rising. Ah need. Imagine how you would feel says if suddenly you get into a situation where you can never go back to your hometown because there's a risk of radiation. Nakajima runs a supermarket. He says that fears about radiation and waters near Fukushima make it impossible to sell the local fish in which he used to take such pride even more. Fishermen eat him because they've been eating them for a long time, he says. And they're tasty. But their sons and daughters in law tell them that their grandchildren should not eat them. This is a situation which divides many families. Judges in the Sendai verdict appear to have been especially sympathetic to such hardships. The Osaka, a law professor at Tokyo University in Tokyo, explains hunk. It doesn't mean you can t the Sendai High Court judges actually visited the area and issuing the Trial before the decision was made. It's very unusual that judges truly understand going hardships the victims are experiencing some plaintiffs in similar lawsuits have not been. His fortunate is Nakajima and have lost Professor Masafumi Okamoto, professor of environmental policy at Osaka City University, says the Sendai verdict could change that in, you know, taking any next? Of course, this's the first time a decision recognizing the government's full responsibilities they made at the high court level, he says, although it was partly recognized by a lower court. It's very significant and it'll clearly influence future decisions. That's why many observers were not surprised when the government and TEPCO appealed the verdict on Tuesday. Plaintiff, Takashi Nakajima hopes that the Sendai Court ruling will eventually pave the way for the shutdown of all dangerous nuclear power plants in Japan. But whether or not the ruling stands will now be up to Japan's Supreme Court to decide. Anthony Kun. NPR news soul

WW2 'earthquake' bomb explodes in Poland during attempt to defuse it

"And what the Polish navy says is a first. A delicate operation is underway in northwest Poland, where authorities are trying to defuse the largest unexploded World war two bomb ever found in the region. The Tallboy, also known as an earthquake bomb was dropped by Britain's Royal Air Force in an attack on a Nazi warship in 1945. It was designed to explode next to a target, triggering destructive shockwaves. Authorities aren't taking any chances. They've moved 750 people from nearby homes. Yes, assume this. I'm not scared. I'd like to stay. But my wife is more scared, says this man job. I'm fearful that it might explode, she says. Divers will use a remote control device to burn the explosive charge without detonating the bomb. The operation is expected to last until the end of the week. Correspondent Riley Carlson

Trump To Select Amy Coney Barrett as Supreme Court Nominee

"This edition from NPR News. I'm Scott's time and we are expecting President Trump to announce Amy Cockney Barrett as his nominated. He was Supreme Court this afternoon. Judge Barrett sits on the seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Ah, in in Chicago, although she's in Indiana and served his clerk to just Saturnian, Scalia. She, of course, would fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose life and career were honored at the court in the capital this week, and you will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery. Let's now welcome Michael McConnell of Stanford University law professor and former federal appeals court judge. Thanks very much for being with us, sir. It's a pleasure. I gather, you know, Amy Cockney Barrett. What's your estimation on her apparent nomination? What kind of justice you might be? Well, I do. Ah. She was a professor at Notre Dame Law School for about 15 years and then Now that capacity I knew her fairly well, she is. We're not personal friends, but I'm in admirers of both her academic work and her performance on the On the seventh circuit. Uh, she's I think a completely unsurprising nominee. Even her opponents recognized that she's extremely qualified, highly and intelligent, hardworking. What are personal Friends knows what in it. Fantastically warm, kind, considerate human being she is and she's I think she'll be an inspiration, especially toe working mothers like like my two daughters, because, and it's just seven Children, including Two adopted Children from Haiti. One right in the wake of the terrible earthquake and on almost everybody who knows of Amy has a story about just how and how she She is so kind and does just considerate things in ways that no one whatever I know about not publicly, but just on a cz, a wonderful warm human being. Let me ask you about some of the public stuff, though, because you're a former U. S appeals court judge and, um I wonder if you've taken note of any particular rulings that she's had the chance to make in her time on the bench. And not quite three years as an appellate judge. He's written 100 opinions, which Dad and itself is pretty impressive. That's Andi. They are. You know, I've not read all of them, but I've read quite a few of them and they're consistently Love of a kind of restrained, very lawyerly of fashion sheep. She clerked for Justice Scalia, who was a brilliant writer, she doesn't write like Scalia. I'm You know, for better or worse. Her opinions are not very rhetorical. There. Ah, rigorous. They are much more low key. Er than that on DH. You know her, and they're just they're consistently conservative, but mainstream conservative. I don't think There's not an extremist bone in her body does does she have opinions? That might surprise some of her supporters every now and then? Ah, every now and then. Ah! Of course, no one really knows where any judge is going to come out on every and maybe we should remind ourselves calling someone a conservative jurist doesn't mean they will always vote a certain way, right? That's right. And the modern legal conservative movement is little different from conservative politics because the conservative legal movement is really mostly about having a more restrained Roll for judges that they ought to read the Constitution modestly with humility, not reading their own preferences into it, And that generally means leaving legislatures and the Congress to make most Democratic choices rather than having the court be like a super Legislature.

Thank you Chris Thank goodness well, and we've picked a region of Italy that I couldn't have told you the name of I know where it is about. Where are we talking about? First of all, if we put this on a map Well. If we were to put it on poor looking at the most northerly and easterly region of Italy incense ranked. In the corner literally border the North would be Australia The you're on the right would be slow being young. Then we have the Adriana CCD so we're an also the region of vinet. Oh. So you're about a hundred and solid kilometers from Venice, if you were to be an Bene- some wanted to travel to live in his Julia. Along the highway that would be approximately about one hundred kilometers and. We'll get into his tryst.

Sending Emergency Rescue crews volunteers to help out shows that the most affected yeah and then The major disaster declaration was was announced by Governor Vasquez on Saturday. I believe it was what one hundred million an estimate about over a little bit around hundred ten million or in damages Have you got any word. I mean anyone talk awesome female I know you WANNA medial with him on Friday with me and others Is there any indication that that The federal government's GonNa be Declaring Lisa South. It's the decorations. Only the southbound at all but What can you share about that Sir if you come? Any indication declared natural disasters on everyone's kind of waiting some clear yet. Be Ema issued a statement saying that they receive. You know the declaration that Governor Wanted Alaska's thing And that's about it you know there's no word yet And many people people are resentful. You know that it's taking this song for her. Not only to sign up ratio but for president trump's comment You know since I reported before for what weighty about eighteen billion In federal funds for her. She might have occurred more than two years ago. So there's a whole you know these fun and even if they are going to quickly so and then I mean I have been on this like I said I mean how would you doing. I mean I hate to put the journalism there. Are you taking care of yourself. I mean because I worry about like my journalist colleagues who are out there around on the seems like you know you've if you've been you've been out putting so much in with But in terms of How do you get through this? I think she'd like why you but you know what I'm saying that I said you are even worse. If you're there you know and I just WanNa ask God sure I appreciate the question and You No it. I'm GonNa put the the answer more to the people. 'cause I mean you're listening job. You know it's really You know this is what we signed up for and our role you know is to To report on what's happening must not happening and Sh- to personally answer question. I mean what what helps me get through all of these other people. I mean it's amazing and this is a repeat of show off and but it's amazing how resilient you know what Are Not only for the reasons. But you know Reporting from natural disasters in the Bahamas and away by drink of people And and that's really I mean you know as a journalist Shorts very long hours very little free a lot of work. But you know you see people going through role. Based on their sense of humor does not appear their sense of Helping other people And just it really really amazes me. I mean it's been sort of one natural disaster disaster after another Korean for the past two years. Roughly and you know that doesn't mean I mean people's capacity for kindness You know for the ability to help others when they themselves are going through. You know the same thing or something worse That's that's really what what keeps me going and you know it may sound trite. But it's amazing to see that So many people affected so many people less you you know literally without their homes or lacking food or water worried about you know where the children going to school and and sort of. Put that aside and Gable to have that empathy with other people. They don't know and help them out. It's just It's really a fifty. You know sort of offense you know all the long hours and endlessly so my last question to you is what's wordings in terms of your coverage. What what are you gonna be looking at in the next couple of days? Obviously there's always the risk that you know. There could be another seismic event on Saturday. I'm sure you know I. It just happened right. I saw so you yesterday like in the morning. And then you're filing and you're getting more. Your birthday was yesterday is what's what's your what's in your mind as the journalists what what are you. What are you gonNA be looking in the next couple of days or even weeks out? I'm not sure we have an important story coming out on Monday Obviously I can't stay in the read read and I mean there's just so much to write about not right now You know swells all night politics. I've been doing a great job on anything man they say Jay Moyer You you know all of them and and the local reporters has won. I mean these people are not only referring the big story but their reporting you know those stories that they consider and local so Elbows paid off our Not Saying a lefty will I would look to them as well for stories but there's so many angles. I mean the the housing issue Where children going to go to school You know it's just he's GonNa set off on another based meal and what does that mean for the islands. I mean you know we're not there to your position There's still diamond I to recover from hurricane money so there's just so much to write about and report on and you know there's so many journalists locally and internationally that are doing this So it's just it's refreshing to see that you know this is still an important topic is still you know. Be viewed at the Bay Story. And they're still so again. A lot of unanswered questions. There's a lot of Discussion about whether the government will on federal whether the responses appropriate this around compared with Hurricane Mighty So a lot of stories to come in weeks and an upcoming months Danika.

Of how much is a hundred cubic kilometers. So one hundred cubic kilometers is about route six miles by six miles by about one kilometer. So if you were to take a six mile six mile area like say that area area around downtown Albuquerque and doug down something like a kilometer into the earth and removed all dirt. That's how much material bill gets. Arrested in. One hundred cubic kilometer eruption and a super volcano is something. That's a lot bigger than that. So that's kind of a cutoff for that.
