Jim Hanson and Corey DeAngelis Discuss Carson v. Makin
"Corey D'angelo is with the association or the American federation for children. And he has been just a leader in the fight for school choice. And we got two wins. First, the Supreme Court decision I forgot, and then also the Arizona decision to have the entire state be run with the money following the children. Congratulations, because you were a part of both those. Maybe not the Supreme Court case as much. But tell us the implications of the scotus decision first. Yeah, totally. This is the Carson V Macon case coming out of Maine. It was a 6 three decision in favor of parental rights and education. And the basic takeaway is if you're gonna have a school choice program, you can't discriminate against religious families and religious schools by excluding them. That's what was happening in Maine. And it pretty much reaffirmed what we already found in the Espinosa V Montana decision in 2020, which was a 5 four decision on the part of parents. And it also reaffirmed that school choice has no issue with the separation of church and state, which is not itself in the constitution. For the same reasons that pell grants don't violate the establishment clause with the pell grant for low income kids, you can take the money, you can go to a public or private university, a religious or non religious university, and you have a choice in the matter. Same thing with pre-K programs, same thing with Medicaid. You can take your Medicaid dollars to a private religious hospital if you want. And there's no separation of church and state issue because the primary beneficiary that funding is the individual student and their families and they can pick among religious and non religious

Long-term Unemployment Remains High Despite American Jobs Returning
"Reopen and vaccinations speed up. But there are millions of people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and who are still unemployed. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports asked Bud Johnson what he liked about his job driving a transit bus at the University of Delaware, and he uses a single word. Everything. The sights are great. The people I work for the great and it's just a pleasant atmosphere. But he hasn't had that in almost a year. Now. You got laid off from classes, but virtual, I eat two meals a day instead of three. I do go to the pre pantry truth from them. Johnson hasn't been called back yet or been told when, or If that will happen. I am looking forward to coming back. It was a great job in January 4 million people had been unemployed for six months or more. It's what economists call long term unemployment. And we haven't seen levels this high since the great recession that worries economists. Bill Sprigs, he says. Many employers stigmatize people who haven't worked in months. The longer someone's without a job, the harder it is to find a new one. So rather than the typical way you think of a line working you show up at the movie theater. I'm first in line. I've been here I'm next. It works in the opposite. The people who are newly unemployed get the first in line and what's worse, this will likely hit vulnerable workers even harder. Women and people of color have lost the most jobs during the pandemic. They already tend to be paid class and so long term unemployment can scar their earnings permanently. Ah McKenzie study predicted It could also take two years longer for them to recover those jobs. Here's co author Quay Lin Island group, the progress we see on closing the gender gap, even take of it out of the picture. Is so slow. And so then you pause that slow glacial progress and you make negative progress. It was deeply discouraging. There's another worry too. What if certain jobs don't ever come back? How people work and live has been changing dramatically during the pandemic, and that shaken up all kinds of jobs. One of the biggest shifts has been more people working from home. That's had ripple effects for Gloria Espinosa into last April. She cleaned offices in San Francisco. Superbly store. We got a visit from our supervisor, He gathered us all on the parking lot, and he talked to us and tell us that we were gonna be laid off. I was wondering God, why us? It was like receiving a bucket of cold water. That's the way I felt a year later, the employees whose work spaces she wants clean, are still remote. And so Espinosa is still unemployed. She knows there's no guarantee, but she feels confident she will be called back to her old job when offices reopened, be instructed bombs, a necessity to move Chapman on the whole. I think that actually is going to be probably the need of additional workers because we're gonna have to make sure that we can provide that. Extra clean a space that the workers deserve. On the other end of California, Carrie Belisle wonders what her work will look like in the future. She's been a tour guide for 35 years. We are in love, Toya. Has my Minnesota group like he's traveled. Grinding to a halt last spring, Belisle has tried to keep busy, even organizing virtual tours Join me Tuesday at two for my virtual presentation about counselor Deck finally began a new full time job.

Rejoining the Paris Agreement of 2015
"Last month december. Two thousand twenty. The paris agreement celebrated its fifth anniversary. Unfortunately the united states of america really wasn't part of the celebration given our withdraw effective in november of two thousand and twenty two thousand and fifteen seem so long ago and the world in the united states has changed so much since then from what has been reported we are poised to rejoin the paris agreement with the transition to president biden's administration wonder just how easy it is to rejoin. I hope it's as easy to rejoin as it was to withdraw. So what exactly is the paris agreement and why is it so important. I'm a little embarrassed to say that. I really didn't know that much about it. Which meant i needed to understand. Is treaty a lot more first off. Yes it is a treaty a legally binding international treaty that was executed in paris on december twelfth. Two thousand and fifteen now. It was executed by the parties of the united nations framework convention on climate. Change or you an fcc now the un fcc was established in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and it was originally based in geneva switzerland since nine hundred ninety five is located in bonn germany. It has a staff of four hundred and fifty people from over one hundred countries. The executive secretary of the un fcc is patricia. Espinosa of mexico. And she is held this position since two thousand and sixteen if you go to the un fcc website you can click on the paris agreement tab at the top from there you can view a short two minute video about the agreement. You can also access the actual agreement. Which is what i did. It's not a huge document. It's only twenty five pages long and consists of twenty nine articles. Article two sets the goal specifically article two paragraph one ace states the agreement in enhancing the implementation of the convention including ex objectives aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty including by holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below two degrees celsius above pre industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to one point five degrees centigrade above pre industrial levels article. You also states that we need to do this. In a way that does not threaten food. Production and making finance flow supporting low greenhouse emission gas and climate resistant development. The cornerstone article says that this agreement will be implemented to reflect equity and the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities based on national circumstances. Now that's pretty powerful to me. That means wealthy. Powerful nations should be the leaders. The treaty works on five year cycles. And we just completed the first cycle now in this first cycle the country's established what is called their nationally determined contributions or nbc's and that's what each nation is committing to do to reduce global warming. You can actually go. To the registry of nbc's it states that one hundred ninety countries have submitted their first nbc including the united states. Although that first one was submitted. September second two thousand and sixteen and at eight parties have already submitted their second. The united states go back then was to be seventeen percent below two thousand five emissions by twenty twenty and twenty six to twenty eight percent below the two thousand and five emissions by twenty twenty five it stated that are targets were fair but ambitious. I think the overarching theme of the agreement was that we were all in this together. Developed countries have to help developing countries. Everyone has to play their part. Perhaps this is the idea that we're all in this together is why the. Us gave notice to the secretary. General of the united nations that the usa would withdraw and he gave that notice on november. Fourth two thousand and nineteen with the effective withdrawal date of four november. Two thousand and twenty. How ironic or dubious that. This date was right around our presidential election. I guess the good news is we haven't been gone that long and we can again be a part of this more good news. Is that for the first time. In two thousand and twenty. The un climate conference started to have a dialogue about the ocean and in twenty twenty. One there is a push to get ocean-based climate solutions into the paris agreement. Not so good news. However is that the international maritime organization. Or i am oh who represent the shipping industry is backtracking on their commitments to put this into context the shipping industry emit as much greenhouse gas gases as the sixth largest countries emissions. So it's not trivial. So how close out this segment again. By stating that. I am encouraged with the very real aspect that the united states will again rejoin the paris agreement and we will renew our commitment towards addressing climate. Change

"Between the subject matter. If you want to call it that way and because nature the environment the Earth Systems, you know are by definition systemic indivisible interdependent. So you cannot have 250 or more off and multilateral agreements on the environment that are not properly interconnected and where there is no accountability with where there's no clearance. In fact, you look it's a very strange but we look separately oceans on one side Wetlands on the other side. I'm dead. Air pollution and the ozone layer, you know climates biodiversity as as separate entities Sone nature does not work like that. I don't know if this message is clear, but you cannot have an international international law on biodiversity in a separate on migratory species. For example, you cannot have the UN convention on the law of the sea on one side and the convention on climate on the other side. You cannot have the forest principals to be with Forest. But you know a separate body to deal with with the climate the UN convention on climate Etc faith in each group that they continue to exist at these conventions continue to exist but we do need an umbrella and overarching, you know, a rational a set of birth. And symbols that can make sense of all these sectoral approaches to the Earth system and and nature. So I think that that is, you know, a critical aspect, you know to to stress to underline the need for a global part for the environment. So would you say that we need a conceptual Evolution to make it possible to address issues such as climate change that transcend borders. Absolutely, you know that the beer system off eco-systems nature, you know, the they have no clue about our national borders. If you look at the ocean the Dynamics of reverse the Dynamics of forests, if you look at the Amazon forest. And the Very existence of the Amazon forest is through there the life that happens not at the soil level. But up there in the green part of the forest energy interconnections flux. So the idea of national borders is really artificial. So we need when you think about the environment and when you think about it relationship between societies the economy our you know consumption and production patterns a you know, we should not think about a specific country or a community but about the planet as a whole month and then in with the covid-19, I think that we have learned, you know a hard lesson is that we are so frail as a species. We are home. Vulnerable and our strength lies on our interconnectedness and on our capacity of acting and doing together and the Earth system is our common Heritage. So yes, we we do need to upscale our theoretical theoretical tools our thinking, you know about how to address the and care for our common Heritage our, our building the item of fear. Oceanside diversity should be considered our Global Commons. And as we learn in our interview with Will Seth and last week, we are all Global Citizens. It doesn't matter whether we're from the United States Australia Ecuador. We all live on the same Planet. So it really is an all of our best interests to them. Actor common home now. We are living in an increasingly fragmented world and seeing a rise in nationalism given that how do you see that the proposal from the common home of humanity can come to be realized I think that in sorry that I'm bringing, you know, the covid-19 crisis having a reference to that of time because that's the the new world that we're living in and it's been so we have lost so many lives all the dysfunctions or malfunctions of our societies have thought you know, we have seen like a magnifier glass effect looking at all the inequalities of the difficulties how important it is to have a Steve from State strong a public health systems, etcetera in in I think that we have learned perhaps the hard way that we are dead. Better one when we act together and these are it's not just a nice phrase. It is a matter or of life or death in this case. Nice little you know, the the level how much we protect ourselves. We respect others the social distancing of the precautions. We need to have faith in all of that to care about others has been, you know, a very very strong lesson in the lesson is that no country safe until off every country saying when you talk about a pandemic but the same goes for climate change the same goes for the extinction crisis, you know, I'll spend several years of my career working for the world conservation Union for iucn and the was red list of birth. Species that were about to go extinct but this list instead of decreasing has you know, increased wage, you know, amazing. What incredible way and when you look at all the assessments environmental assessments the too weak points are you know, the extinction crisis the loss of biodiversity and and of course the climate crisis in in believe me that these are not issues that can be sold by one country alone or by one president or leader alone. It really requires a strong multilateral system a strong concerted.

"You'll hear from leading Global experts on how the proposal of recognizing the existence of an intangible Global common Without Borders can change our relationship with our planet the common home of humanity has proposed an ambitious New Globe pack for the environment the adverse effects of climate change span across borders and Beyond territories recognizing the Earth system as a common Heritage of humankind is the first step in restoring a stable climate a visible manifestation of a well-functioning or a system this proposals cascading effects would be systemic and tremendously impact international relations and economics opening the doors to restoring a well-functioning earth system, and home conversations is the place to discuss a new social contract between Society wage. Economy and the Earth system now here is your host founder and CEO of the planetary press Kimberly White. Hello and welcome to comment home conversations today. We are joined by Maria Espinosa president of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly. She also served as the Ecuadorian Minister of Foreign Affairs coordinating minister of human Heritage and minister of National Defence. Miss Espinoza is the first ambassador of the common home of humanity. Thank you for joining us now miss Espinoza. You have been a Trailblazer throughout your career. You were the first woman to become the permanent representative of Ecuador to the United Nations and you were the first female Latin American to become president of the United Nations General Assembly, and only the fourth woman to hold that position in the seventy five year History of the United Nations. Tell us what was it about the proposal from the common home of humanity that stood out to you and made decide to become their first Ambassador. Well, it's been such a privilege to be requested by the common home of humanity to become their first Ambassador Goodwill Ambassador. I will call it off. Because I think that they are looking at the Earth system the planet as a holistic in a container of relationships and I am convinced that one of the the core read definitions that we need currently is off to think about a new pact between society and a planet Earth. We need a new social contract among humans to establish not only Harmony in our relationships between between our humankind but in our relationship with with our planet because unfortunately, we have taken and nature and it cycles for granted the wrong. I love of nature meaning nature not as an object that we can use endless affecting and harming it's it's Cycles. It's right to regenerate and to live simply know. So I saw in the common hormone Manatee proposal this holistic view the systemic view of planet Earth, but also the possibility of advocate fifteen for a new social contract between humans and nature. We would love to learn more about what inspired you your educational background began in linguistics, and then Amazonian studies and you actually spent some time in the Amazon with some of those local communities. Can you tell us more about that and the impact it had on your career? Well, I think that my first contact with the a massage Region was was a life-changer quite honesty and that was at the very beginning of my career. I was offered a position to offer says the bilingual education systems in the Amazon region in Ecuador and general assessment of the Amazon of the time. I thought was well long time ago around eighty seven or so and my experience and work experience work was more in the highlands. I was fascinated by them with sticks and the connection between language and culture but more in the highlands and that opportunity that led me to the Amazon completely change, you know my entire, you know passion for the Amazon for the connection between Amazonian indigenous peoples and their environment. I understood very quickly that language was only job A vehicle a means of communication, but what was fascinating to me was to discover this very close connection between indigenous people's Lifestyles and cultures and wisdom and knowledge through language, but regarding the natural environment in so many journalists Amazonian indigenous languages you have for example, so many different words to Mean Green, you know in in westerners as we age we say green and it's green know. They identify dark green light green different types of forest using, you know, different nomenclatures life for green a very, you know, fascinating taxonomy for for traditional medicine for agriculture birth. And it was an eye-opener. I was fascinated by by that and I was so much then connected and attractive to to change that relationship between culture.

"Vasquez Espinosa. PhD candidate in the chemical biology program at the University of Michigan. Welcome to science Friday. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to talk about the Amazon and the media. Thank you. You traveled all the way to Peru to study these microbes that this is not a quick trip. I imagine No, absolutely. I am originally from Peru. But I think the U. S for a few years and you know it takes two airplanes to get first to lead by the capital of Peru, and then from there, we have to take a small local plane on and then from there. Nowadays, it's about 3 to 4 hours of over a treat to get to the boiling river area. But years ago, maybe 2011 or so it would actually take also a treat with Becca Becca, which is Locales and old boat plus hiking to get to the area. It must be worth it, though. When you get there, right. Oh, it's absolutely breath taken. Yes, Tell me describe describe what it looks like. So I have been traveling to the Amazon ring for us to the Peruvian Amazon ring for us for many years, So I visited all the way from the north to the south. And I'm always just amazed at how you can feel it in my mind live in its purest form. You can hear it. You can smell it. You khun Hatchet. However, the first time that I went to the bull in River area, which wasn't 1000 16 We were going down a small Cleef without protract, and I couldn't see the river yet. But all of the sudden I noticed that there is vapor escape into the tallest trees. And basically, the vapor keeps going towards the sky. And at some point you will struggle where the vapour ends and where the clouds begin and That moment to me. He was Whoa. Okay, This is a completely unique, different place. And it just gives you the sense of mystique. And yeah, and just knowing you, you are somewhere completely completely unique. Walking through a cloud. Really? That was kind of a sensation. Yeah, it just really made me stop. And, Yeah, Tell us why the water is boiling hats. The river water gets so hot. Is there a volcano there, you know, usually like we think not separate question, So the boiling river is extremely unique because three particular characteristics one. It's a huge river, so he's actually as wide as two lane Road in a the deepest point can get up to 16 feet deep. There's a large bowl of water flowing there constantly. It is extremely high, and as you mentioned the temperatures reach over 205 Hi and then also is non volcanic. So the nearest volcanoes over 400 miles away and the person that introduced the river to the world for say his name is like your friend and mentor and dress. Russo and I would highly recommend everyone Tio watches at 1014 where, he explains more of like the geology and your chemistry of the river. And what makes it boil basically constantly. That's quite fascinating. Now I know you went looking from microbes. I mean, you can't wait into the water and laughing into the boiling water and try to fish out microbes, can you? How do you find the microbes? Yeah. No, Absolutely not. You think about it. If your skin comes in contact with water that he said 150 fine high for two seconds on ly, you already will get 1/3 degree burn. So in the river of the hottest point, we're looking at 200. Fine. Had passed s O. We had to use special tools, his resistant material. In orange, which the samples that these hottest points But eventually the river basketball down s O. The temperature gradually pulls down until the point that you can actually go inside the river safely. We were collecting different type of microbes. We were collecting cyanobacteria, which you may know from your local ponds where you see microbial mats, almost green algae mats being Florence on phones around the world. Also, we found some of these in the boiling river, so we look specifically for the few areas that were design of bacteria. Mods were formed. As well. Sediment sentiments known for containing Ah large number of bacteria so we could like sediment from different points of the river and then lastly, also lichens, which are a combination ofthe typically Santa bacteria and fungi. We also found them On some of the hottest spots of the river as well. Why were they living in such hot water? I mean, you would normally think when you want to sterilize something and put it into boiling water that this doesn't seem to affect them. Why is that? Why they're living there to protect themselves from predators? Yeah, So we know in these type of microbes that are capable of living in these extreme conditions as extremophiles In this case, we are talking about thermal files. But in other studies in other areas around the world, you can also find Microbes capable of living a very acidic pH, for example, or sustaining high pressure, etcetera. In this particular case, these thermal files half a specific information encoded within their DNA that provides them with a survival advantage. They have evolved throughout time we learned to strive were really other forms of life die if you you know, put any other macher form oflife like a small animal there, it will boil from the inside out. It's not a nice way of dying. But these microbes have that unique capacity and most likely as a result of environmental stress where they leave. They're not flourishing of driving. And that's one of the reasons why we think they could be producing very unique molecules, natural products that Provides them with this survival advantage. Those would be possibly medicinal products we might be using if we learn how they make them or how they produce them. That is one of the things that we're looking for absolutely natural products that could perhaps served us potential medicine's a lifesaving antibiotics, anti cancer drugs, But also and that surfaced perhaps biological probes or agent for bio remediation and addition to that we're looking at the enzymes, which are basically the factories that manufacture this complex natural Proud of molecules within the microbes on these ants, and because they are able to withstand his very extreme hot temperatures, then they could also serve as relevant by Okada lease in order to help us performed brain chemistry. How did you become interested in the world of microbes like this? It all comes really from a love for nature, my family wass, born and raised in a small town in the high Andes of Peru,.
‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Workplace Is Under Investigation By Warner Media
"Reports of a toxic work, culture and crew furious over poor communication during the Corona virus shut down. Despite the bad reports, there have not been any direct allegations made about Ellen herself. For more on all the bad news that the Ellen Show will speak to Matt Donnelly Sr. Film writer at Variety, so essentially human resources representative for both the production company that makes Ellen just called Tele Pictures and Morning brother. It's which obviously, areas the program or distributes it have both come together and sort of pursuit of information about sort of the day to day experience for Ellen's employees, a member, we have changed the sort of reference the stories said that their goal is to ultimately create a work environment where ever wanted sort of protected. And also can sort of advance and flourish and safety, So I think it's you know, a pretty responsible move on their part, But at this point, what we know is that they're reaching out to current and former employees to discuss their experiences, where presumably will conduct as sort of a larger report about what if anything, needs to change their Now, let's talk about these two reports just to kind of see what we're working with here. Back in April, Variety reported on the treatment of crew members during the Corona virus locked down so very loosely when things initially shut down, there was crew members who were saying that we weren't really being told what was going to be the fate of our ours or our pay. And then when Ellen's resumed some sort of filming at her home, they were kind of left out of the lurch on that, too. And I guess they hired Nonunion workers to do that work instead of them. Yeah, A lot of the sources we spoke with who are familiar with the production basically say that her long term crew people have been with her sums of the entire 17 year run of the show. Just expected a better level of treatment in terms of if and when they would come back, You know, up until the moment we published a report that Legacy crew was told to sort of expect dramatically reduced compensation, even though the show of going on filming at the normal rate, so I think a lot of people thought sort of betrayed in away by mixed messages, especially for someone who's banner. Heather staying for her jealous to be kind, and some say this is very difficult situations, obviously, in the confusion and chaos of the Corona virus pandemic that hidden in some ways, it makes sense. Maybe hire those non union workers because they have to do something, maybe things that the union might not have agreed for their workers, depending on safety, and all that, So sometimes those things make sense. But they were just saying that They weren't even afforded that choice or whatnot. Of course. Yeah, I think it was a lack of transparency that really got people. And yes, you know, Krone viruses cause such a dramatic ripple effect how we do or more specifically how we don't do production at the moment. So, yeah, the union might have to look the other way occasionally on getting some people back to work instead of, you know, sort of a massive sun town. But again, I think it was that sort of lack of care. That really got to some long term employees. Yeah, and the pay was also an issue. I know. They told them you're gonna get reduced hours or reduced Pay that way. But shortly after you guys posted your story, then it started coming out. Well, well, they're going to get paid their full amount. They're full pay all that stuff. I think that the production sort of realised, But the right thing to do was especially because if you follow the logic through if they were taking the same amount of episodes, that means that this is going into syndicated viewership and selling the same amount of advertising No one's really losing money on the end. It's just obviously out of an abundance of caution here to figure out how to actually make the show. But you know again, and I think Hollywood is a town that when your staff looks the way that l Inez and you've got no. Ah, working family or some people put it in the over 17 years, they expect you to cover them The way they've covered. You end up with a large part of the frustration and you know another thing. That was in that same report was that you know, no one had even stepped in and said, How are you? How are your family? How is your mental house? Which I think a lot of companies, you know, including the publisher Variety. Ah, lot of people didn't do that. You know that They were here for you. If you knew Greece sources that child care if you need meditation class you any number of things to sort of band together in a really unprecedented in highly stressful time. A lot of people thought that that wasn't done and we're quite surprised. The other part of this. In mid July, Buzzfeed published a report alleging a toxic work culture there. There was an employee who said that there was some racist behavior going around and a few other things that just really made working there on the show, not really tolerable. The budget reports have sort of a spectrum of accused behavior that is troubling from to start a sort of ID on that atmosphere of intimidation and fear. You know, there was some accounts of verbal abuse their accounts of sort of, you know, an idea that overall senior leadership it Alan felt, but no, it was a privilege to work there. And anyone who might complain about sort of the emotional atmosphere. Even working conditions could just move on because they couldn't find anyone else who had died of work, Carella It's a much more serious stuff like sensitive people of color on the head from jokes about two African American females being taken for each other because they have the same hairstyle to another employee being sort of shouted down an angry and resentful because she suggested that the entire staff received diversity and inclusion training. You know all this is supported by historians. That's quite serious, especially, I would say in the world we live in, which is a post me to world and if you even look at what's been happening in this country in the past two months There is it's incredibly justifiable demand for a lack of this toxicity and for transparent, clear on how we're all treating each other at work. Not one thing that I found interesting is that there is no specific
Chicago officials uneasy as Trump plans to send US agents to help deal with spike in crime
"Investigations agents to Chicago and other cities. Help local law enforcement deal with a spike in crime. These agents will likely assistant intelligence gathering targeting drug trafficking groups and gangs, but there's a lot of pushback on this plan. More on this will speak to Nick mere off Department of Homeland Security reporter at The Washington Post. Well as many of your listeners will be aware there's been a significant increase in violent crime in several U. S. Cities over the past few months. Chicago, New York and elsewhere have seen a lot of gun violence in particular. Now, one of the tricky things is that that dynamic Is being conflated with the situation we're seeing unfold in Portland, which is quite different where protesters are squaring off against federal agents outside a courthouse every night. That is very much a kind of political dynamic that we saw several months ago after the killing of George Floyd. And what the president is talking about going forward would be sort of a federal response to this increase in violent crime, and so far, we know that that's plan for Chicago. Oh, but that firm operations are scheduled the occur any other U. S city so far and to further clarify that distinction. What's going on in Portland? The agents that were dispatched they are there to protect federal property, basically and in Chicago. This is more of a response to crime That's going on there, which has gone up. There's a lot of different things that is going on. There's a lot of shootings. There's a lot of homicides that are going on, and that's what they're talking about with regards to Chicago. One of the things that we're seeing is that the president in his rhetoric and probably his campaign rhetoric is kind of trying to complete the two things and saying that the kind of rowdy street protests that we're seeing in Portland particularly attacking this federal courthouse that's being defended by DHHS agents every night. You know that that is the kind of anarchy That he says is playing out on US streets everywhere and is to blame for this increase in shootings, and he's laying that squarely at the feet of democratic mayors. He said yesterday in the Oval Office that the radical left mayors are responsible for this and that he's going to basically send in the feds whether they like it or not. And you know he's warning that if Joe Biden, his opponent were to win that we would see this kind of chaos breaking out across the country, so it's very consistent with his Campaign effort to present himself as a kind of law and order figure who can pacified the cities and bring everything under control. But again, VHS officials when you talked to Dick down, make very clear that they don't see the Portland situation as being comparable to what's happening in these U. S cities and are planning a very different deployment for both cases. So in Chicago. They're looking to send about 150 homeland security investigative agents there. It doesn't sound like they're going to be out on the streets doing enforcement making arrests. Things like that. So what would they be doing there in Chicago to aid local police? Also, homeland security investigations was a division of immigration and Customs enforcement ice and immediately that makes people think of immigration agents and that particular division of Ice is the one that targets transnational crime, drug trafficking, counterfeit goods, things like that. And so in this case, they say they will not be involved in an immigration enforcement role, but will be working on Surveillance and helping local and state authorities that air targeting gangs, drug traffickers and the actors. They say. We're really driving this increase in homicide. It's not a civilian or urban policing role where they will be out on the streets, and it has nothing to do with antigovernment protests. Unlike the situation in Portland What is the local response Been? I know the mayor Lori Lightfoot has said, you know she doesn't want Federal agents there. What else have they been saying? Well, that's you know, a dynamic that we see over and over again where it's sort of like this had occurred quietly and state and local officials would be getting support from the federal government, as they always do, because again, a lot of these Federal agents are already working in that area, working in the Metro Chicago area and cooperate with state local police. There's a routine part of their job. It's when you see the president Making it into a kind of campaign related effort into a projection of his power into a standoff with Democrats that you politicize it, and you get that response from the Mayor Lightfoot and others who I think you know, out of hand feel they have to kind of rejected. This deployment with the idea that they can't be seen as sort of accepting the president imposing federal forces on their cities, particularly from an agency like immigration, Customs Force Mint ice that has such a damaged reputation right now, What about response from police? There has been a lot of stuff there. As I mentioned there's been 414 homicides more than 600 shootings more than 2000 shooting victims. This year so far. What about police? Chicago Police Union and other police union's welcome that federal support and want the federal government to help and not a particular point of tension. I think between Democratic mayors who are responding to his calls to define the police abolished, the police enter patient know very tenuous situation on the streets after George Floyd and the Police Department's themselves at least the unions that feel Besieged and unfairly blamed or painted with a broad brush. I think for the president is trying to get inside that rift and tryto short of their support and his image as a defender of law and order. All the plans are still being worked out, so we'll see what the rollout looks like Nick Mirror off Department of Homeland Security reporter at the Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining us my pleasure anytime.
Supreme Court Says States Cannot Discriminate Against Religious Schools
"The past two weeks of Supreme Court rulings have not been encouraging after a disastrous ruling last week. And Bostock, arbitrarily expanded of rights protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity this week, according June medical all but handcuffed meaningful state efforts to restrict abortion finally yesterday, some good news, the Supreme Court by a five four vote held its ground on discrimination against religious education in espionage versus Department of Revenue The court ruled that a state tax credit which discriminates against religious schools in the families whose children attend or hope to attend them violates the First Amendment Free Exercise Clause. This case dates back to two thousand fifteen when the state of Montana created a dollar for dollar tax. Tax Credit for individuals who donate to organizations that provide scholarships to private school students after creating the program, the Montana Department of revenue ruled that such a tax credit. If used to scholarship, students for religious private schools would violate the state's version of the Blaine Amendment, which prohibits state funding of religious education well. Kendra Espinosa, a single mom, who works extra jobs, so her kids can attend a Christian school challenge the Department of Revenue's ruling in court in late, two, thousand, eighteen, the Montana Supreme Court acknowledged that the department's ruling probably ran afoul of the US constitutions free exercise clause, however instead of overturning the ruling. It just invalidated the entire program well. Thankfully, that didn't work in. In his opinion. Chief Justice John Roberts said that went. Otherwise eligible recipients are disqualified from public benefit solely because of their religious character. We must apply strict scrutiny that statements a reference to the Trinity Lutheran Decision, which was a case successfully argued by the alliance defending freedom back in two thousand seventeen strict scrutiny means that the action can only be justified by a compelling governmental interest. Montana lacked a compelling governmental interest. Instead the state argued that the law serve Montana's interest in separating church and state more fiercely than the federal constitution while Montana's interest replied Justice Roberts is actually limited by the Constitution, specifically the free exercise clause in other words, the establishment clause and the free exercise. Exercise clause cannot be pitted against each other. The separation of church and state can't be done by discriminating against the church. And religion is not some secondary part of the First Amendment even more. Roberts continued Montana's attempt to sweep the free exercise problem and had under the rug by just invalidating the whole program doesn't change what he called Montana's error, a federal law after all because of the Trinity. Lutheran decision the Montana Court already knew the department's ruling was unconstitutional, but instead of applying the decision as it should have hit, just invalidated the whole program to make absolutely sure that religious schools received no aid ban action. Itself violated the free exercise clause according to Roberts a state. Need not subsidize private education, but once a state decides to do so. It cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are religious. Liberty opinion is a resounding repudiation of dozens of Blaine amendments and other states as well originally targeted to limit Catholic education. These amendments provide legal cover for treating religious institutions and the people who depend on them. Ask second-class Citizens Roberts made it as clear as possible that day, and we are not Roberts also rejected a suggestion by Justice Briar, which he called a quote, flexible context Pacific approach that may well vary from case to case religious. And citizens he said should not be at the mercy of courts waxing philosophical about the purposes of the religion clauses, and then applying them on some ad hoc basis, not dimension. It's hard to imagine how briars flexible content specific approach could be applied to any other right such as abortion, and perhaps the best part of this ruling. It offers a roadmap for Christians who hope to help people like Kendra Espinosa Afford Christian education. The Montana program can serve as A. A model for other states could even open the door for other solutions such as vouchers. Educational Innovation has long been among the best gift. Christians have to give to the wider world. This is an open door for us to become even more creative today. That's why this decision is such good news after the earthquakes from the court in the past couple of weeks, it's certainly nice to have some solid ground on which to stand
Coronavirus conspiracy theories on the rise
"So the video is conspiracy theory as you know it's and the basic idea seems to be is that some shadow we elites are conspiring to use the pandemic to seize power maybe make money by creating vaccines and the star of this twenty six minute clip that went viral is this woman named Judy make of that too has become a kind of hero to the anti vaccine crowd she's a discredited scientist who published a book in April called plague of correction and that sort of depicts her as a truth teller fighting scientists who aren't willing to accept inconvenience facts and so far right publications began to promote her book in this documentary that is forthcoming will apparently be taking an even closer look at these sort of baseless conspiracies this video has since since it kind of blew up has been taken down but tell us about some of the crazy accusations and I mean one of the things that keeps popping up I think it was the main thing that really got to pull down was they were saying that wearing a mask will literally activate your own virus that's right and that is the thing that got it taken down platforms like YouTube and Facebook generally do not want to remove content from the network and they tried to enable a maximum of free speech but they do make an exception for stuff that is actively harmful and while a lot of this video plan that make is just kind of conspiracies saying don't forget a lot of people are making money and other people are going to become more powerful that's not what it got taken down I got taken down because as you say it warned people against wearing masks you know saying that it would re inspect them which of course there is no basis for that whatsoever but you can imagine if a lot of people watch it's that and believe that you could have a really negative a stacked on public health so initially Facebook did it want to remove it but when it sort of stumbled across that particular claim it said okay we've actually got to take this thing down any doctor Judy make if it's for herself she does have a degree in biology from the university of Virginia a PhD in molecular biology she worked on the national Cancer Institute she has a lot of things under her belt but then she started getting into work about chronic fatigue syndrome and vaccines and this is kind of where she was derailed a little bit a lot of people discredited a lot of the later things that she was researching so like in two thousand nine she had published research saying that a mouse retrovirus because chronic fatigue syndrome which got a lot of attention but it was discredited a couple years later and the journal ultimately retracted it and it in this sort of like a weird aside story she was actually put in jail on charges of staffed which apparently involves computers disappearing those charges were dropped but the whole thing was a scandal and she was kind of sidelined and lost her scientific career but after that she sort of drifted into this anti Bax crowd and because of the credentials that you mentioned the anti vaxxers have sort of lifted her up as this brave truth teller even though what she saying is largely nonsense so let's talk about how something like this goes viral the usual players come up obviously Facebook and you to have a huge part in this but there was a lot of Facebook groups that we're sharing this and then beyond that even as you mentioned there's a lot of mistruths in this video but it also takes time for their fact checkers to go through this so as you've mentioned they didn't take it down right away it kind of was circulating around for a while while they were trying to do some of that fact checking it's a really interesting story the way that things go viral on Facebook and you tube is always changing based on the things that the platforms due to try to stop bad stuff from happening and sort of like as soon as they fix one problem another emerges so over the past year Facebook has put a lot more attention on groups getting people to join groups kind of moving away from that news feed and there are a lot of conspiracy groups anti VAX groups where this video clip was very popular in what happened is people were sharing it in the group and what they were sure it was actually a link to you too and so from those Facebook groups they were able to send seven point one million views to one video within a period of between thirty six and forty eight hours so just within a short period of time Facebook drove all of that traffic to you too and so it was kind of an unwitting tag team between the two platforms that sent this thing viral as you noted it did take awhile for the platforms to fully understand what was in the video the video is twenty six minutes long it contains a lot of claims and they had to go through it sort of point by point and ultimately make the determination that it had to come down but it sort of speaks to this cliche this quote that is attributed to Mark Twain that the lie gets halfway around the world before the truth can put its shoes on and that was definitely the case here and it was also this whole thing with obvious all the algorithms and it's this big cycle she had just self published a book not too long ago and it became this thing where searches for her name brought up searches for the video and vice versa searches for them he would bring up searches for her name so it's kind of this big cycle where it's just feeding off of itself for a while until Facebook and YouTube took these things down and you know I think it's important to remember that Judy megabits has something to celebrate she has a book to sell into this whole viral events on Facebook and YouTube has been very good for her she had a number one best seller on Amazon over the weekend yesterday was still at number six so all of this is bound to be huge benefit to somebody who is selling this very day Alicia's ideas that just doesn't have any basis in
Coronavirus testing ramps up in the US
"Some numbers that we've been seeing the U. S. has completed about twenty thousand coronavirus as as of last Friday so the testing response has been very slow up until now it'll start ramping up with test like yours and others as well once we start getting true numbers true test we're gonna see the numbers rise of confirmed cases but help explain to us why this is of the utmost importance there's really a two reasons why getting the testing done is really important number one is to really understand and protect those who are at particular risk for this particular call that nineteen infection if you look at the experience in China and in northern Italy we're we're now getting the results published in the medical literature it really is becoming apparent that for patients that are young and healthy it poses a pretty minimal health risks similar to influenza or other respiratory viruses but for the elderly or those with an underlying medical condition they can get into really serious trouble requiring intensive hospitalization and so the first aspect of the testing is really to identify who has it to make sure that we can try to protect those who might be particularly at risk for having a bad outcome from Corbett nineteen infection and the other is to understand how the disease is spreading across the United States so we can really trying is to containment measures which are becoming shown to be really important in protecting those who are particularly likely to develop
How Americans Are Adjusting to New Social Distancing Norms
"Of coronavirus cove in nineteen continues on in the world the numbers of confirmed cases continue to rise in the United States as well there's more than thirteen thousand cases as of now those numbers constantly changing it's going to be more and more local governments are imposing stricter social distancing roles the strongest clamp down right now is in the bay area which is advised people to shelter in place LA county just impose very similar roles but despite all these rules we continue to see many people out and about for more on this we spoke to Erin all day she's a health writer of the San Francisco Chronicle to talk about how the clampdown is going a few days in and also how hospitals are preparing for a wave of coronavirus cases all day about the restrictions first of all it's defined as everybody told to stay home stay away from others as much as they can you're allowed to go out for a what's called a financial business which at this point it's fairly loosely defined and that people can go grocery shopping they can go out for home supplies though toilet paper cleaning products you know diapers whatever you might need in your home about the auto body shop at Merion hardware store is not the place to kind of fit that criteria of what's considered essential I will do for now I think that there's room for these measures to tighten up even further if we're not the answer to the improvement in case count that that folks are looking for but for now that's where we're at as far as the restrictions we are a couple days into it and you know it seems like people are are taking this seriously I think we're still feeling out dean profoundly here people are still kind of figuring out what appropriate and what's not you know there's a lot of people that are going outside right now because their courage to go outside it's not healthy to just be in all the time but you know you get enough people outside in one spot in the end it sort of defeats the purpose of social discontent I think something like that what kind of object into and and there may be you know changes without
Iowa Democratic Party reviewing results from 95 precincts following caucuses
"Was the Iowa caucus debacle which happened on Monday days later at the time of this recording we're still unable to declare a winner we have ninety seven percent of precincts reporting from Monday's caucuses and former mayor people to judge leads Vermont senator Bernie Sanders by three state delegate equivalence out of two thousand and ninety eight county that's a margin of point one four percentage points they're coming in at twenty six point two percent and twenty six point one percent it's just a razor thin margin this comes as the Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Peres as the Iowa Democratic Party to conduct a re canvas which is not a recount but rather a check of the vote count to ensure that everything was added correctly I as I said it's just a huge mass but we did have a reporter down in Iowa the day that it happened ginger Gibson she's a political reporter for writers she was there on the ground in Iowa Joe Biden camp she tells us how it all played out for her and more on this app failure that really contributed to this whole I would've Bakul many people it's site no way we go past midnight and in two thousand eight what was a competitive race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton it had been decided by nine thirty so what about nine nine thirty when we had no results he started to see the reporters really started trying to figure out what was going on why there was a breakdown why we didn't know any three sings at all shortly after that by two o'clock the party started to acknowledge there was a technical problem this point that the fans of the candidates are sort of milling around there at the bar they're getting snacks no one's no one's panics yet are we're telling our editors like I'm sure will still be out here by midnight in about eleven o'clock it became clear that that was not going to be the case we heard before that the candidates start getting up and giving that their speeches and for someone like Biden who looks like your finishing fourth place which is a really disappointing finish for the former vice president he was able to get up to give up for the up beats speech to sound pretty optimistic because we didn't know he had come in fourth place at that time okay the app everybody can agree was a spectacular failure they said it was a coding error results were going in accurately as reports were saying but they were only getting partial results out of this what do we know about who develop this app why were the using at this time and just more about why it failed this act had been developed by a company of vendor there were questions of the state party why it hadn't been adequately tested why it wasn't that that's the failures of the coding hadn't been located before they sort of said you know it was unacceptable this is a problem but we don't know exactly why this was able to go live on Monday night when it was clearly not working and not going to work as you said there was a coding error of some sort compounded by the fact that we have to remember that these are sixteen hundred precinct captains you have to enter in all of this information and let me let you in on a little secret these aren't the young and tech savvy right her hauling tearing out so there was a multitude of problems people couldn't log in they couldn't figure out how to get through that what was really at three factor authentication process they couldn't get it to load they couldn't get it to download a lot of problems along with that ultimately culminated in the biggest problem what you said this coding here that just made it not work at all now this is really drawn the whole entire Iowa **** is first in the nation's to vote on who a potential nominee could be as call this whole thing into question people are saying I wish you can go first anymore people are saying we should get rid of the entire Caucasus them because it's just confusing an inaccurate and and I think everybody's kind of agreeing on that front I think that what we're seeing and I talk to democratic strategists today is that Democrats particularly even more than Republicans have been looking for a reason to get rid of the Iowa caucuses day find I. what should not be the best day to go first it's a state that's ninety percent white are in the Democratic Party that's a fifty percent non white it is pretty rolled out here in in in Iowa and they have different priorities here in the state then the rest of the parties show had been an effort within the Democratic Party sort of bounce iOS from this position as the first in the nation and I think that they're saying this is the nail in the coffin this is the thing that's going to just make it so untenable that they can't imagine in four years at that they'll be back again to have the first contest last question ginger I know we didn't get results last night and Joe Biden was one of the first people to give his speech that he went right after any club which are which is also kind of another thing Joe Biden started speaking then Elizabeth Warren started speaking and she didn't get any coverage because everybody was carrying his speech it was kind of a mess all

give me a really good yes big time to party and have a good time and really appreciate life right that's a fascinating way you think that's around bass an eighteen point nine to picture all of the music that you can date back to the twenties their act out records there's pictures videos of all that stuff really the twenties was the first decade that we really truly documented almost everything we did as humans and we're a hundred years later look at the progress we've made yeah that's fascinating what's it what is pretty fascinating as well so if you go back and think about to see even five years ago what I phones look like a hold on let's think with the I. phone first make its way on to the market at least ten years ago it was like a two thousand seven or two thousand eight I think yeah just look it up as a you're looking that up yeah so the first commercial radio broadcast was in nineteen twenty in the in November of nineteen twenty while so that's when things change were radio started starting to be used for entertainment purposes and news so just like that we're getting that much closer to Rosie that's good he is as I've heard that one of the big things that might we might see in twenty twenty is that China may connect to Beijing to London via high speed rail what what exactly they have to cross the Himalayas and the Alps isn't anything yeah I China's that they're gonna pay for and build the infrastructure only fourteen years yeah for the rights to natural resources that to the mineral number and oil yeah that's why you know you know what America get your act together we're we haven't connected LA to Vegas yeah they're connecting Beijing to London I know can you imagine the alley to Frisco and I guess that's not the rebirth of the flying car will we see that I would love to see that you know what I have a personal jet packs let's just start with personal jet pack well there not the jet packs but I did hear how uber has been doing test with making bigger drones that's right so that they could you know especially in LA with all the traffic thank you can pick up and over the basically Jack drone that will pick you up at the helicopter for crying out loud but it's their version of a drone you know and what I was doing his thing I thank you is it with this company there's a company that's doing that right now they're going into the business of creating the like little house I don't know helicopters or planes and it's to transport folks around town but I but the question is when does it become mainstream doesn't work if it's too expensive and you know it's not accessible but the over lists of the world are accessible to everyone so it's gonna be mainstreamed well the first year that the I pod I pad exists I phone system it was a luxury item everybody you had one had a lot of money now and everybody has one maybe it's one of those things that you know you get a great innovation and then you need to wait a good ten fifteen years

really want to get into a stranger's car yeah going to happen but look at it now people use it all over the place that's right for us yeah you're right yeah really Ford mild but I'll tell you what is coming up in twenty twenty outside of impeachment abi Doug I mean done done done done done done to tune to downtown Hey this is regardless of whether regardless of what side of the argument you fall

they'll talk about it and so you were there yeah but no but twenty twenty big big political year to him to be a big election year so people have to pay attention but I think what's fascinating to what's different about twenty twenty in this presidential election it's going to be fascinating to see how they reach voters across the board because now more than ever have we seen a very fractured audience meaning like how you reach your grandparents then your parents to your nephews to the grade school kids and yourself is incredibly different it's the weirdest thing I mean sometimes it goes by you before you start looking audience and say no your audience you know socio economically speaking like was access to TV's and that's now it's not just about you know whether you have the money to own a television is the fact is the way people consume news content is so different how do you reach someone now folks can just be on their iPhones smartphones and want to go to one venue for

Minnesotans in the mix at UN climate summit in Madrid
"MINNESOTANS in the mix at the international climate summit in Madrid. I'm NPR chief meteorologist. Paul Kutner with climate cats. The world's latest COP twenty five climate summit wraps up in Madrid this week. What's the specific focus of this latest climate summit? Sarah Sarah Good. Speed is the youth and policy manager at Minnesota's climate generation. She attended the meetings and joins me via skype from Madrid this week. Hi Sarah how. Aw what are the key. Areas of focus and negotiations at this particular meeting. Well there are a lot of different working groups trying to work out. It's a rule book on the parents agreements so this includes how countries will be counting their emissions reductions. What kinds of projects counts? And what kind of regulations. Those projects need to fall under in order to safeguard communities and to effectively reduce emissions rather than just counting counting projects. That folks we already doing or double-counting those projects then negotiators are sent in to amplify their own countries perspectives. I want you to listen to this comment from Executive Secretary for UN Climate Change Patricia Espinosa. And get your reaction on the other side each year the call. We're told that the window of opportunity could close soon ministers. They window of opportunity. Is this closing now Sarah. We know that climate scientists are conveying. The sense of urgency is that getting through to policymakers in Madrid. I would agree with the sentiments of Patricia. The NOSSA WE are hearing that from all sides youth are calling for indigenous. People have been calling for it and that's really not translating into the action that we need you know we've for years been talking about the potential for things like sea level rise and forced I migration were actually seeing that already begin to happen in certain parts of the world and right here in the United States. What's the discussion about forced migration due to the already early impacts of climate change forest migration is actually one of the themes that climate generation is looking into this year ear? As we're here at COP I've been in a number of discussions both with frontline communities we're experiencing migration or who are facing displacement from their homelands homelands as well as with countries were trying to prepare to receive migrants and so there is a lot of discussion around looking for different ways that we can model solutions in. It's not necessarily translating again into formal commitments by countries to support those solutions yet. And what have you found most interesting cop twenty five so far I have been very powerfully struck by the representation of youth and indigenous voices. They've been incredibly powerful voices and I hope that our negotiators across different countries are really starting and to hear them and stand behind them as they create these new policies. Sir We talk on climate cast and we know people can all make personal changes to reduce our carbon urban footprints but how important are the bigger structural changes. There's no amount of personal action that can equal the systemic structural changes changes that we really need to achieve our goals. We are here in Madrid and advocating for those larger structural changes that make it possible for for individuals to make the right choices and for all of our infrastructure to reflect the green feature that we really need Syra goodspeed. Youth and policy manager here at climate generation. Thanks for joining me from Madrid on skype on climate casted. Thank you Paul. That's climate cast. NPR chief meteorologist call

And fortunately, he passed away and we met in the hospital because my dad time was battling and his own problems. And he was on life support and her father was on life support.

"Nerdy swag. I'm really excited about this week show. So as I mentioned, we're going to be chatting with Stacy Espinosa, and she's the global product development senior manager for mints and new benefits for the Mars Wrigley confectionary. And if you don't know what that means. That's okay. Because we're going to talk all about it during the show, but basically. She's an engineer who gets to like invent, candy and mints for a living. And it's the coolest job ever. And I cannot wait to share this interview with you. So without any further ado here, she is Stacey Espinosa. Well, Stacy thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you for having me. All right. So we are recording remotely I'm over here in Los Angeles. The weather is finally good. I'm looking at my window, and it's nice and sunny, it's been raining nonstop for weeks, where do you hail from? So I am currently in currently live in Chicago, which is the opposite of warm. But you know, I if I believe the weatherman coming spring is coming. And are you there right now? I'm actually in Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis Carmel, Indiana. And it came down today to do some stem outreach with my mother-in-law's class. Oh, no way. How old are the kids? So they're in second grade. That's. Citing we talk about this all the time. And I mean, I think this'll probably be a big bulk of our conversation today, but like little girls, especially girls before I'd say about seventh grade, which is where it's happening all through childhood, but where big shift starts to happen. They have to see women in stem positions women in positions of corporate power things like that. So that they can see that this is an it's an option for them as well because they just don't see these role models as often as we'd like in the media. Absolutely. And I would say it's it's one of the biggest areas of passion. I have one of the reasons that I really love what I do because it enables me to have something really tangible and acceptable to young people about stem. And I think that one of the challenges is sometimes stem can feel really complicated. And it's for really really smart people. And and it can feel really am bigamous and intangible, and when I walk into a classroom, and I say have you heard a candy, and they all everybody's eyes light up. And I say did you know that there's there's Semin balding, candy and Joz drop. You know, there's just all I mean kids are so Wigley. It's it's really funny. There's just this reaction of of blowing up the paradigm of what people believe stem to be and one of the things that I really really try to do is just to use the tools that I have to make stem more accessible and to teach them about what goes into making products. And what are some of the things that we think about an addition to kind of the what talking about how we do it and talking about how we fail and keep trying and learn from our mistakes and think we got it and then fail again. Keep trying and the emotions that can kind of come along with that. And it's okay to feel..

But it's not the patriots that you kind of knew from the last seventeen times or so it's a second. But it's still not guy Tom Brady. Yeah. Tom married to Giselle who's got him on the amazing plant based diet, blah, blah, blah, like the guy meditates, this is why is killing it every time. Honestly like for someone who doesn't follow football professional football. Only follow that UCLA USC game. Let's be real as a Bruin. That's the one game. That captures all my attention. But outside of that for someone who doesn't follow. I'm amazed. When I heard last Sunday, they meant to mention this to during the show because it two games are happening. Right. And when I heard the patriots when I even said that team again in the Super Bowl like hell, we get somebody else in there. Give somebody else a chance to go to the Super Bowl, man. What a monopoly if you gave Kansas City a little better defense. And maybe a shot. But but didn't they have like I heard the rumor was he had a great. They had a great offense Mahomes. Yeah. Wasn't that like a running back or somebody to quarterback like up and coming guy Mahomes is a quarterback that he's looked fantastic at times a season. But then he fell apart. Yeah. Part. That's the problem. But see that that's where the Giselle Panchen right formula works for Tom. That's my theory. Do you notice? How quiet producer Brian on these topics about football? It's so funny. Anything about politics. He's all. Fine with that. But by no, nothing nothing. Do you know who the Rams? I used to have an LA Rams shirt. When I was a kid so young blood on the back. Yeah. And he probably thought he was like oh some debate team for some political. That is so funny. Well, no. But it's so weird because what they believe it back in Los Angeles for what two years or so it's been it's been brief. But what about this shadiness the all this controversy that some calls were not made during that last game against New Orleans, and they don't deserve. No. Well, while fighting words. Yeah. Exactly. Well, the the hit that the the corner made for the Rams I mean there was no call and. Yeah, there could have been a call. But on on the game would have been over. Right something like that. It would have helped New England a lot they would have been ever closer. But on the drive before that for the Rams when they had to kick a field goal. I mean, the guy grab Goths face mask. And you know, they didn't call anything there. There's a bunch of points during the course of the contest where it could have been called. And you can go back. And I thought the NFL was kind of weak though, coming out and finding the guy twenty six twenty eight gram whatever it was from the helmet to helmet contact on that. I'm not surprised they're kind of weird period there. Yeah. They're a little different cats. It really are their game. So so Ellie city fire chief Ralph Toronto's says that he believes the Rams will take it. And I asked what's the score? Okay. Ralph and he says twenty four to twenty one. So I need ask you what you think. The final score will be next Sunday. I think it's higher. I think they need behind. Yeah. I think they get gone. You think the Rams are gonna win? I actually did talk. You watch them enough. So I'm going to defer to Ralph on that one Ralph. Plus, he's got a little of that Homer. Is I'm going in there. So I am Switzerland. I right. Rugby and biathlons watches much NFL probably is Ralph. Yeah. And they have a bed apparently with the Boston fire department. So I wonder what that is. Hopefully, he'll text me back and tell me what that bet would be. But I just think man, can you imagine seriously being married to Tom Brady like oh gotta go to the Super Bowl again. It's just like she goes to the Super Bowl like we go to the supermarket. That's what it feels like. I mean, that's that's a pretty cool life to say. Oh, remember when she walked out in in Rio for the Olympics for. I mean, it was like. Came out of the water or something like that. It was pretty cool. I love how Vegas all the bets going or like when do you think the first son of cells going to be getting the? Which which segment or which whatever I commercial. So I will be watching the Super Bowl knocking to live with the very very unethical. I for commercials 'cause I won't understand the game. A so am I where am I clapping now? Is this is this a team? You know? Okay. I'm sorry. Honey. No, I'm not gonna do that. And then I love quiet. You know, where will you watch the game? I haven't even thought about it. I think it's gonna throw a party, right? Izzy. Are you going to hell, no? Hector arch. Are you a football? You an NFL football like nine tirelessly. No. Not entirely. So there's a little piece I am planning to see the game. You are you're going to be like, Elizabeth desperate. Watching the commercials really is LA rounds on should get a trophy. It would be nice. It would be very cool. I will say this. I would like to see the Rams win because they have what was the last time. They won. I thought I eighty four. Well, the last time a Los Angeles team one was eighty four eighty four that was the raiders when they're in town here, that's pretty cool. The dodgers went right to the championship. And then we have the Lakers of didn't win it twice. They're not the a curse. Oh that would be weird. Don't see that. Sorry. Joe hart. Oh, look, you just you just sent me what it is LA city fire supports their quest for a Super Bowl victory. Elian Boston or two of our country's greatest words cities. It's very true. The Lakers and Celtics have a storied rivalry. And it says the dodgers the Red Sox played in last year's World Series. With the Red Sox coming out on top. So now the Rams against the patriots. Right. And so because three months ago. Ralph Terrazas Elliott city fire chief lost the friendly World Series wager with Boston fire chief Joseph n so now it's a not so friendly pretty much exactly the wager required that I sent chief in and the Boston fire department, Boston fire department, L, E, T shirts and pinks hotdogs. That's not bad. Right. And now, I have agreed that the losing cities fire department shout. One raise a winning teams flag below the American flag over there. Downtown fire station for one day. Ouch. Have one downtown engine. Fly. The winning team slide for twenty four hours on the same day. Have the fire chief where the winning team's jersey all day on the same day. The flag is flown. Tough. Brutal and have the fire chief film with congratulatory message to the winning team and their city and posted on their social media platforms out come on rounds. Let's do this.
