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. What's good here at a vaccine? Put it in San Diego. It's just nice to To chat with people and especially people that are getting vaccinated because they're all so happy and excited. While knows this new job won't be permanent, she's hopeful tour Busses will start rolling again. And she can go back to work in the field She's loved for so many years. Sam bring Glass NPR news.

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

"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

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.

Migrant boy was in distress before death in Border Patrol custody

"Border patrol as you know is in charge of maintaining the border I have a cousin by the way works for border patrol is out in Texas and god bless them in a tell all the time I thank you for your service and making sure you keep a safe because there are people that are terrible and evil that want to come in we want to keep them out I get that and I'm all about that but when border patrol purpose the lies it's very upsetting and then that is there's video that's been released by pro publica and it shows a whole different story than what border patrol told everyone regarding a teen who was apprehended and suffering from the flow and should have been taken to a medical facility but instead cap somewhere in isolation and then died here's a story channel seven is a tell a reportedly answer that footage disturbing the final moments of the sixteen year old's life caught on camera in a border patrol cell Carlos Vasquez reportedly died of the flu a week after he crossed into the U. S. in may a nurse at a Texas processing facility diagnose the teen with influenza he had a temperature of a hundred and three and was be reassessed in two hours in hospitalized it is conditions worsened border patrol officials took him to a quarantine facility where was put into a cell with concrete slabs and foil sheets in the disturbing new video released by pro publica U. C. Vasquez was from Guatemala obviously suffering he rides in pain on the concrete then crashes to the floor where he lays for several minutes before finally mustering the strength the shuffle to the toilet where he collapses I think was negligent homicide it is completely unacceptable for a sixteen year old child to die of the flu there are also serious questions about the investigation the video border patrol gave the local police investigating the case goes black for four hours after Vasquez collapses when it returns the sixteen year old cell mate who also had the flu wakes to find an unresponsive and alerts the guards border patrol officials say the agency was overwhelmed with migrants at the time many of them sick with the flu lawmakers say that's no excuse for teens death they say could have easily been prevented what's so upsetting as well as at that video shows him going into he drops to the ground you have to see this video I mean I don't mean it like that but you know I'm sorry he drops to the ground and he goes into convulsions it's clear that he's having a seizure because of the temperature it's so you know his body is on fire and I I can't imagine he's by himself like that feeling those last minutes and this kid on I mean again only sixteen was it you see him laying there police photos and factual a large pool of blood around his head yeah and you know even border patrol trying to figure out a way to get around saying that if there is a seventy two hour deadline they're supposed to do you know it assist with and they just I am just all of it is just so perplexing to me it's I get that we want to stop the bad people but is this sixteen year old really is he really that person that we're trying to keep out of the country that's so dangerous to our public safety I mean that's why I feel we're losing our way we're losing our our common sense and you know I get that they felt overwhelmed and you know figure it out with the first World act like the first world I mean this goes back to all the family separations and by the way current according to the times they're saying that this is what the eighth no one of at least six children have died since December twenty eighteen after being detained you know by border patrol agents well and there's article saying how can we really be sure considering the fact that in this story the video basically contradicts exactly what happened what the trolls said was happening so we may be seeing more deaths than we're getting reported and we we just don't know for sure and it's when we see stuff like this it makes it so vivid and that my thought immediately was for the kid that found him because that's another level of trauma that that kid has to go through that he shouldn't have been subjected to either he already had the flu is well I'm glad that it be hopefully he's getting some kind of treatment at this point but that's a lovely night yeah but that's another level truck trauma that people go to and there's I mean there's there's something to be said about the level of animosity that we as a country are creating what like we're creating an enemy I do a course we are I mean you know what we did this wasn't an enemy before this is now becoming an enemy absolutely that's a that's an excellent point because you know border patrol practices you know for example this kid asked as was in custody for more than six days in the standard except in emergency situations as for C. B. P. but you know customs border patrol is to hold migrants for no more than seventy two hours before you transfer them to immigrant immigration and customs enforcement or the office of refugee resettlement which is basically responsible for migrant children who come to the US without a parent so I mean there's a lot of you know things that I've been out put into question but remember you also have the eight year old boy from Guatemala Phillippi Alonso who died in New Mexico hospital on December twenty fourth Christmas Eve it is seven year old Guatemalan girl who died in Texas hospital on December seventh I mean it it's it's just it's horrible it's just horrible I I and I know that they're talking about well you know we're well we go through this out yeah we could do better like how do we just look at this and it's like well in American they're darker skinned an account as much that's the attitude I feel their kids that's the thing they are kids want to be to be clear just a separate the political and just the guys that are in gals that work down there right like you saying they're very overwhelmed with however many kids and adults that are being you know picked up in these facilities at some point when you're trying to do your job and you have that many people it gets to be less human and more kind of like cattle not it is not that they're doing that like that's how they think limits just like these are numbers we got a pushing through although this kid has the flu we got separated before everybody has the flu but then this is a kid that dies and it's like well somebody dropped the ball because they're just so overwhelmed so we just got we we you're right it needs to be fixed it needs to be fixed as quick as possible we got to remember remember that these people are overwhelmed and it's I don't I don't know what it into your point I absolutely agree but I think that's the problem is that you work with it but but see you're held to a higher standard because if you're not position you're right I it's just like journalists right we see death and destruction is all the time we have to make sure that we don't just you know put everybody the same category and let's say you got a look at each story you have to look at each person and say oh I hear you I see you I'm here in a moment with you yeah all I'm saying look they have a hard job I agree with you a real I mean love my cousin tells me a really hard job but the fact is in part of the criticism here is that they're saying there was an agent that checked up on him he like they've had gone and said the little you know inmate this cell mate said Hey this guy's not feeling well and he did one of these like look to the window was like that was a welfare check and that's where you know that person absolutely drop the ball and you know what he's got to sleep with himself here she who knows at night yeah I wanna and I've been working with a lot of veterans and one of the stories that I keep coming up within hearing is that they are coming to grips with a lot of the actions that they had to take during war time frame and I get the feeling a lot of these border patrol agents are gonna end up in the you know five ten years down the line having a lot of emotional issues coming to grips with just what they had to do to be able to survive doing this kind of a job from day to day it's a great point I I think that there is that there's a lot of truth to that because you know what your parents too I can imagine if one of these agents has a sixteen year old home and things wow just for a better life and just to catch the flu and die in a cell by themselves what about their

It's kind of caused me to go out that much anymore. Like I feel like when people are like really really really close with their family they have a really small friend group too. 'cause like like their family has kind of taught them like you're really pay attention you have in your circle like really focus on who you're spending your time on and who's spending time on you know. Aw In our in our really focus on you know like if I go out and see a bunch of people and that's fine and stuff like I really do have like a small core group of people other than my family like and then. Yeah I I Virginia so and we live on like five acres in the middle of nowhere. So it's like it it's like taking the reset button uh-huh. Yeah that's that's what I always say. Whenever I go back home to Virginia Man Reset Real quick? It's a great thing. I think that goes back to traveling to even if it's like driving somewhere for you can't fly somewhere. You know just like going and exploring different areas and with nature. I love in the summer. I go camping with my my family. And it's the best time ever like resets because we're in La for so long we think. Oh this is the whole world and you know we just it's just like and then you realize oh there's the whole rather here that and it's also the fact that you know time moves really fast in La. You know seasonal in those seasons in. Virginia you have your spring summer fall winter all that stuff like that. Is this mental clock for you okay. We're in this part of the year. Now right let me feel this way. Certainly feel that way. Let me do this. Let me do that when you're in a city where it's either rain or shine. Six months will go by what just happened so fast paced. That's why but now that you put it in that Kinda way. I can see that you really have this mental clock for these and seasons you know and then like I swear a whole week ago by L. and I'm like why did how did how did I just lose seven days but in Florida Florida like every time like when I'm there it just it feels pretty slow in Florida lets us. You're probably not there that often. No I'm there like most of the year. Oh really yeah go on vacations like my whole family's there but when I'm there it's like but I think I think what is the mix I think it's a mix of the pace of the city that you're in and also because Florida's pretty chill at one store. One time of year every single year growing up we went to Daytona vacation trip. Every time we go to Florida state drive on the beaches. They have that no never drove him to drive there. You know we have vans on Daytonas the one place that you're allowed to. I can't remember though I don't go up that let's see that's more northern Florida Florida. We did drive on the beach park on a beach actually fully with memories flashbacks. This is the first time I've looked. Does the camera camera.

"KFI AM six forty Sunday morning with Elizabeth Espinosa partly sunny, but we may have some a little bit of rain there later today. So don't forget your Brenda. And you know, gear up for it. You know, there's a lot of things have changed. Now. We are in January twenty nineteen. That's right. Minimum wage for employers with twenty five employees or less is now gone up to eleven dollars an hour. Woohoo minimum wage for employers with twenty six employees are more has gone up to twelve dollars an hour. So congratulations. I know some of you are complaining and some of you are celebrating. But I'll tell you who's also not really celebrating right now. Both the Los Angeles unified school district and the UT LA that's a United teacher's union of Los Angeles. And they have decided well quite a bit ago that they ninety percent or something of the membership decided we're going to go on strike if we don't have a fair contract. So initially everybody thought it was just about to pay raise. They're looking for six point five pay rates, which sounds like a lot right who gets a six point five pay raise. But they're saying we haven't had one for over three years and on top of it the real conditions that we're fighting for our what's happening in our classrooms. What's happening on campus? Did you know that eighty percent of LA USD public schools don't have a nurse on campus full time? So the asked we've second what if my kids diabetic in is having some trouble at school. Are you telling me the office secretary has to act as if she or he is a nurse and administer insulin to my kid. That's terrible. What is this? I thought. It was LA since like the golden city with all the money in the Oscars and people's choice awards et cetera et cetera. Well, it's happening. And so overcrowded classrooms is also an issue. There are students that have to sit on the floor. I'm being told their teachers have to give up there seat their desk. So that seat students have a seat. And so now they've decided that if there is not a deal that happens at the bargaining table with the district by tomorrow, they're going to go on strike on Thursday. So it's coming up this Thursday January tenth so the real question is if that happens, though, what are we gonna do with half a million children who whose parents are freaking out for good reason? And then I think about our special needs kids. So I was out at the press conference on Friday. And here's part of what's happening. So far listen to this. UCLA? The teacher's union argues that L unified school district superintendent, Austria, beauty, an investment banker by trade is strategically holding onto an unrestricted school reserve fund of nearly two billion dollars Austin what experience in corporate downsizing, but not an education argues that the reserve should be held cuts made and private is and privately run corporate charter schools expanded they call it intentional starvation and privatization plans if a deal isn't reached on Monday on January tenth more than thirty thousand teachers will go on strike L A USC confirms they are hiring substitute teachers should there be a walkout. We believe. It's illegal to hire. Folks in the way that they're doing not to break a potential strike yesterday. LA unified also filed a complaint with the court to prevent special education teachers for going on strike for them. Suddenly right now. Less than a week before a strike to say that they're suddenly concerned about special needs students. It doesn't pass the giggle test, but some special Ed parents say if students are truly the priority here why not allow the fourteen point five percent of L A USC teachers who serve the most vulnerable disabled student population saying class. Some parents say educators are well aware that a substitute teacher a special Ed class is not the same as a sub in a regular Ed classroom. Those educators are not going to have their fundamental rights to advocate be a part of their union, especially when it has to do with advocating for those very students. You know, something that was Alice Caputo pro he's a UCLA the union president. Look, I understand that part. I understand that you want your teachers to have a say in if they want to strike then go strike, but I will say the optics on that look terrible as a special needs advocate as a special needs sister. Who understands what it means to have a child in your home with special needs and having continuity of education of care. You can't just have a substitute come in and take over the classroom. True that are aids and people that will stay stay in place. And they are the district is a district responsibility. Ultimately legally to provide for that child needs right? The special needs child. But you know, that even though that's what it says there. It's kind of like there's immoral obligation where the ethical one where you've taken a real vow to serve that special needs child and for me. Personally. I feel the right thing to do for those special Ed teachers, especially for those classrooms where they're incredibly vulnerable. You've nonverbal students that may not speak, but they feel most comfortable with that same set of individuals in that classroom, and you're going to change that. And when the nuances like the sub is really going to understand what the nuances when the kid, you know, leans to the left or does a certain grown this can happen. So it's incredibly disruptive, and I really think that the union should reconsider that position. It's only fourteen point five percent of their of their membership. So it's unfortunate that the district is looking really like the hero in this because they're finally a complaint with the court and they're hoping to get a response back soon. So they can bar- those special Ed teachers from walking out. But then there's another part of me that thinks well, you should do that on your own court. You should you should come from you if you should be a dedicated teacher, especially when it comes our special, Ed the most. Severe cases, you should say to yourself. I mean, of course, I'm in solidarity with my membership. But my student is is more need than my walking out. I mean, you could still be in solidarity is my point again. I just think that sometimes we get lost in all this. And I will I will say I gave the suggestion to Alex Caputo Pearl and his response to me was with a little bit of an attitude. Thanks for the suggestion didn't really want to hear it. And I'm sitting here going like guy seriously. Like, you're an educator your your parent. Maybe if you had a its parent that was nonverbal and incredibly compromise, you'd have a different opinion about this. But until that happens to you, apparently, you don't really care and then into the district of the Austin her side, folks, I do think that there is it appears to be that there is some plan to privatize. And he is an investment banker, and he should use that experience to bring in corporate dollars to boost public schools and not just focus on charter schools because we know that the the board, you know, the school board. The majority are charter school proponents. So there is a shift, and they are calling this out of the privatization playbook what's happening with this contracting. The reason why they're trying to starve our school. So that eventually like they will privatise etcetera etcetera. Now, why is that bad for our public schools? They say it fails children that supposedly the stats are out there. But I will say that there is a civil rights component to this because eighty five percent or so of those those school children and are low income, and the majority are minority kids, I wonder if this was a school district that he dealt with a lot of rich people that were all lawyered up. I think things would look really different. I don't think there would be a potential strike looming. I think contract would have been done. So I would really urge the both sides to be incredibly reasonable. And seriously think about the kids think about the kids, I know it's asking a lot. But, you know, something you take the job. Both as a superintendent as a district head as a teacher as a union leader to look out for these kids. So do your job. Good luck. Tomorrow. The reading ten AM we here at city hall, and we'll keep you posted next Sunday Sunday morning with Elizabeth KFI AM, six forty Mary Kate. Actually, pay a former high school.

Former US president George H W Bush as you've heard has passed away at ninety four years old Bush family spokesperson says Bush died shortly after eight PM Friday local time about eight months after the death of his wife of seventy three years. Barbara Bush, the country's forty first president served from nine hundred eighty nine thousand nine hundred ninety three eight years later. He watched his son, George W Bush become the forty third. President the elder Bush was a World War Two hero. A Texas congressman a CIA director and Ronald Reagan's vice president, but he had a reputation for his character. And humility I just want to get up into heaven. Don't get there by bragging on myself. My mother told me that you're.

She's like, let's take a goofy picture now. And I was like I love swimming with the backdrop, right? So we did this funny. Little post check it on my Instagram page at Elizabeth Espinosa. Okay. So let's have a quick recap here. I wanna make sure you've got this down. Yes onto yes. On seven. Yes. On ted. If you remember anything, it's yes. On ten. Thank you very much. We wanna make sure we start figuring out the housing situation. Pump it up his palms. Yeah. I love that Rossio is doing the next show Jesus Christ show. And so she's in the newsroom. I worked to get her. She won't join us. What's that guy? And then I'm also a yes. On the repeal gas. Thanks, by the way, which I know you're not Brent. Yes. On six and then do I have a no one anything? Oh, yes. On twelve the one for the animals of them have a little more space really made me think that I probably should not eat me. 'cause you start reading like the details on how Pete is like just doesn't go far enough in your just slaughter them. Anyway, like God. Point. I think that pita producers it makes me cry. Well, it does. And to be honest as the same Serra mcglaughlin song. Oh. It is it is it bad that like of an angel. But is it bad after I'm crying? I'm like, I need a kindness talk. Kentucky. No wrong. Anyway. Okay. So you've gotta say yes on Sutton, which is a permanent daylight saving time measure. Let's just can't right of this back and forth. Oh my God. It's like a can't do it. And then. And no one eleven Noah's the one about you know, these companies trying to get away with not hiring more people as ambulance EMT's to just keep them. Like, hey, you just work thirty hours a day into, you know, just take your break. If we still need, you we need, you know, look for you. Oh, really? Yeah. No that they just want their bonuses. That's all greedy, greedy, greedy, greedy. All right. I think you've got if any questions hit me up, and if you need a ride to your voting poll, call me tax me feed me, I am there because I don't want to hear. A boat metro and lift or offering services they are. They are talk about. That's right. Some of the the other things that are making big reverence. What we're talking about that this these midterm elections record number of women running Kato. You know, Oprah's been stumping for the the Georgia Stacey Abrams Casey Abrams. Sixteen women this time running for governor two hundred thirty seven women running for the house and in the Senate twenty three women running for seats there as well. I was watching yesterday. I chance span interestingly enough. A rally with President Trump. And I just I'm tired of the ear mongering. It's gotta stop man. It's like they kept saying I even took notes on this. Because I thought I wanna make sure that I'm I'm hearing this, right? Because this is crazy crazy talkies in Montana. I think and he's like if Democrats regain house control, you know, it's basically like the idea was at the end of the world. And then I was watching Fox News channel to see what everybody says and CNN says sumps too. But not as crazy. I don't care. What you say? Yeah. They may be the lefties and all of this. But they're not as crazy. I was watching this guy waters world, whatever. Okay. World water. Okay. Go get water. But but they kept talking about how if the Democrats have then the mob take the house. You know, what they're gonna do. Right. They're gonna impeach Trump and cavenaugh or free enterprise system is at risk. And then and then they actually did this whole thing with Sean Duffy. He's a Republican from Wisconsin. And they're saying, oh, my God the Democrats platform. Is is like, you know, they you realize that these are these radicals that want non-americans to vote in American elections. Can you believe that? I don't even understand where they come up with these stupid dogs and cats living together complete chaos, and then they're upset that they're like, oh, and you realize they could subpoena Trump for his taxes. Like that would be the end of the world if we did that because other presidents have done that. I'm sorry. This is fearmongering and this whole thing with the migrant caravan saying that they're invaders and you're going to send troops to the border. Oh, I'm so sorry. I mean because what a threat, right. Moms holding kids with feet of fill to blisters. And God knows whatever, you know, sickness because you've been walking for hundreds of miles a those baby diapers voted. I mean, honestly, it's disgusting. I was at a rally, in fact, a Soytunc VN metoo movement rally in MacArthur park the other day. And this woman said to me, do you know it breaks, my heart is a survivor of sexual assault. There are a ton of women that are in that caravan from Central America that are fleeing domestic violence. Okay. If we didn't believe Dr Christine Ford, what it saddens me to. Thank you think they're going to get believed. You think they're going to be believed because these are, you know? Immigrant women that are not to seem color issue. And they don't shoot the same language into different culture God forbid, and we need troops for that. And you know, I'm glad that there are some amazing of military leaders who have have such a spy stood up to the president into the administration saying this is a waste of our time of our resources and our training. Our troops should be training right now as opposed to getting them ready to send him to the border. Are you kidding me legacy? He's still commander in chief in order to do. So so I mean, I it just oh, so we're hoping to flip. They're hoping to flip twenty three states. And I know like Chelsea handler, by the way was out with Katie porter down in Orange County. She's a UCLA law professor running for office down there. But here's one that's a real hot, hotly. Contested one is the Harley route the democrat that's running for California's fortieth congressional district seat in congress, and he's up against Dana Rohrabacher, you know, the name, right, right? The favorite congressman. That's right. Senator exactly it. Apparently. Here's why you should really consider getting him out of office. He's been on the job for twenty nine years, man. That's cushy. So he's got a nice retirement package coming his way, seventy one years old, and he thinks at home sellers should be able to discriminate against gay people. Now, maybe you're sending yourself. I'm not gay does not gonna affect me. That's okay. Because that's how it starts. I income for the gays, and they come from somebody else and somebody else, and then there's nobody left to stand up for you. So you better start standing up right now because silence is complicity my friends and also Dana Rohrabacher wants to blame climate change on dinosaur farts, he believes it's dinosaur fart..

"Morongo. Good times. KFI AM six forty Sunday morning with Elizabeth Espinosa. Okay. You know, what I'll tell you what I'm just hoping all of you get together and go out and vote November six it's so important that we all show up for midterm elections. And I say this time and time again, and I really mean this, of course, it's really exciting and sexy to follow all the drama. All the Jarama that happens in DC, right? It's surpreme court showdown and all the other stuff happening. But ultimately, what's really important is what's happening in your backyard? And I think a lot of people don't pay attention to city council meetings don't pay attention to municipal code and ordinances that really dictate your life. So very important that we started doing that we actually show up to some more city council meetings here in California, we should also pay attention to propositions. I mean, everywhere, you shed. But here in California, we've got a big one it's a real controversial one. And if I when I heard about it, I thought oh my gosh. I think we might have an answer to skyrocketing prices when it comes to housing rentals and even buying home. So you've heard of proposition ten right? Everybody's like proposition. Ten it's like, you know, this old guy come on the commercial talking about, you know, I don't have a place to stay and unless your Bank is filled with money. You got to vote. Yes. On prop ten and then you get these other guys coming on like this family. It's like, oh my God. Like a working class family, right? The commercial perhaps ten no, I'm ten. It's going to hurt us homeowners that are working hard. And those of us are home owners kind of raise your eyebrow. And think wait a minute all not going to hurt us. What? So so let's demystify a little bit of all that madness. Because I want you to go to the polls you need to vote, and you need to vote responsibly and be well informed. I will tell you it appears it appears because I believe I still need to do some more reading. But I would argue a yes ten is probably what's going to happen in my book. And I say that because we really do have to do something about this housing crisis. I can't tell you how many stories and pitches, I get from family members in crisis that their grandma who has cancer under last leg is about to get kicked out of her apartment because the new landlord now. Because of rent control. Laws and different regulations. They can't just kick out grandma. But don't they do? They're smart. They say, grandma, we're going to give you whatever extension. It takes to get you out. Just a couple of months of that. And once we move you out of the house or the apartment, your rank control department. We turn it into a condo you remodel. And once you do that you can now hike up the price and taken that crazy vast return on investment and make lots of money, and I want people to make money, right? That this is capitalism. But I think the greediness is a little bit out of control, truthfully. So so practicing prompting what does pop really do. All right. Let's breakdown area is. In essence late limit. Look. I had it right in front of me. Now, just escaped me. All right Brampton would repeal the Kosta Hopkins rental housing act. You know, what that is right now. Yeah. It makes it possible. Tell you the second one is, but it makes possible for city and county governments to pass rent control policies at will. Okay. So the cost of Hawkins rental housing act was passed in one thousand nine hundred five and what it did was limited municipalities their ability to enact new or expensive rent control policies. So here's the deal if you vote, yes. On prop ten proposition ten it's not exactly going to give rent control by it's not going to enact rent control automatically doesn't mean that cities will now have rent control ability. But it what we'll do is. It's going to clear one of the hurdles meaning it's gonna give these local governments the opportunity to enact their own rent control policy in the future, which still means that you my friend have to show up to the city council meetings and understand what they're trying to deal in terms of shaping what that policy rent control policy would look like if they even. Consider it or not because let me tell you there realtors association builders development. Those folks are an incredibly powerful special interest lobby. And in fact, they have poured in I think something like, you know, ten times the amount of money that the yes on ten folks have for commercials and all the ads and whatnot leading up to the election. Apparently, they've been outspent. I mean, these guys on the no on prop tent have a lot of serious money. And you're going to start seeing a lot more ads as we get closer to November sex. But in fact, you got huge real estate equity firms like Blackstone real estate burners and also apartment management companies like western national group that are pumping millions of dollars on the nonprofit ten campaign. It looks like Dave outspent them the yes campaign three times over you know, so it's quite a bit. Look, I think that it's incredibly. Important that we start somewhere. I personally think it's kind of a poorly written proposition. I would have liked the yes on ten meaning it's going to give rent control period, two municipalities. And look I'm a homeowner. Sure, I think that we're all entitled to make money. But I mean to what extent I mean people that own equity firms people who own these big developments. Listen, relax, you'll survive. If you only drive one Bentley at home. I mean, how many Bentley's can you drive at the same time, bro? I mean, seriously it's like the grease out of control like we need to find a way to still keep families together and our seniors under a roof. I mean, I'm not kidding. I can't tell you. How many stories I go out to and I talked to a lot of our elderly who say we can't afford to live anymore and rent their rent increases that we're still kind of trying to follow and survive with. But the fact is rent control is one way. I'm not saying it's the final answer. But it is one way of especially, you know, looking after our seniors who do live on a fixed income are disabled family members who. At some point. Maybe you have to live by themselves are not in a group home. You remember you have institutions by law that are being shut down. So where do all these special needs loved ones go they have to go into the community, and where do we place? These vulnerable souls get we have to find affordable housing for them. And I think there should be some type of rent control. So that we can all live in peace and well together. So I mean, look, there's a number of groups. They've already endorsed the yes on ten campaign. I know some of the newspapers the Sacramento bee. Anyway, one of the most influential newspapers in California as endorsed proposition ten and and I would say that you've got you've got a fighting chance there, you know to help families. So why not? So of course, we'll post some of this information on our website. But just keep reading guys I don't want showing up to the polls and just thinking like, I don't know yesterday. L? Let me see how I feel today. These are so important. This is such an important proposition. And in fact, producer Brett, what do you think we should actually look at some of the other ones, I think there's there's a funny one about should paramedics take interrupted breaks on their shift while someone's dying having heart attacks. This is crazy. You just lost for words right now. Yeah. They're on break. They can't help you right now. All right. So we'll come back with the calendar section and much more Sunday morning. Don't get paid for twenty four hours a day or something like that. Let me starting with Elizabeth Espinosa KFI AM six forty Mary Kay, take it away ever seen a thousand dollar.
