Uh well as partner drives on route. Marcus monitors demands vital signs. Making sure it's pulse and blood pressure stay stable halfway there. The man weeks up up his eyes open he looks around in a panic. He grabs the oxygen mask ripping it off his face. He turns to Marcus. Where am I right here in an ambulance? He looks around taking it in. This isn't like any ambulance. I've been in before that's the idea a few minutes later. They're back at the hospital. A nurse greet some of the door and Marcus and Jonathan hand. The man over their job is done back in the crew room doctor Chris Afar catches up with them. Hey just heard about your patient is going to make a full recovery. Thanks to you. Thanks for Marcus. Brushes he's not used receiving praise. Thanks Doug as far he heads to the cafeteria to grab some food still thinking about the call. It felt good to know exactly what to do when a doctor snaps out of his reverie. Hey you a kid threw up in bay to excuse me a kid threw up in bay to you. You need to mop it up a nurse over here. Some discerns what's happening He's not with housekeeping Dr Brown. He's with that ambulance thing. You no the charity program for the guys from the Ghetto L.. He walks off without apologizing. Marcus watches them. Go rage replacing. The pride cried. He had felt just moments before although the Freedom House men faced racism in the hospital that comb the hill district. They were heroes. Yeah they were providing medical care to people who were previously abandoned by the system. They found a new purpose in their lives and like markets markets who had struggled in school drifting from job to job or gotten caught up in crime when no other paths impossible now took pride in their work. Marcus focus who wants felt. He wasn't good at anything loved being seen as a professional he could list off his skills his ability to perform. CPR STOP BLEEDING COM. Tom Crowds for the first time he felt like a somebody even had kids approaching him on the street asking him how they join Freedom House when they were grown up. The Freedom House ambulance service was giving hope to the hill district. Just like Jalan commissioned by April nineteen sixty nine a new training class us with starting and better yet how had raised the money to provide the service with two brand new ambulances designed to Dr Safar specifications they were everything Dr Safar had dreamed call and wide decked out with all the latest equipped and they were pretty painted orange and white with the word ambulance emblazoned Leeza across the back and their first year. Freedom House treated almost six thousand patients. The rate of patients who died in the ambulance was under two percent and their average response. Time was less than ten minutes. Those stats would be considered good even today but six months later everything changed inched Helen speaking it's December nineteen. sixty-nine Mr Mr Helen. This is James Cortesi. I'm mayor elect flared as public safety director. Pittsburgh has just elected a new mayor when who ran on a small government platform calling to let you know that in the new year the city will be cutting your grant to fifty thousand dollars fifty thousand dollars. That's half of what we're getting now on. Understanding is that the original grant was really only supposed to be seed money. The service should be self sufficient by now. Jalan is Aghast Freedom House typically serves the poorest people in the city to be self sufficient they would need to collect fifty dollars per call most of the patients they treat can't afford to pay that and the state only reimburses ten dollars the grants cover most of their costs. With without that money. We won't be able to make payroll CORTESI IS UNMOVED. I'm sorry to hear that but mayor flaherty already is committed to trimming fat like these kinds of anti-poverty programs with all due respect emergency. Medical care is not fat. He slams comes down. The Phone Jalan feels heart race as he calls Dr Safar. He doesn't know how they're gonNA make up the shortage less than two years after it started. The grand experiment seems over but in a roundabout way mayor flare at his decision would actually take the Freedom House vision to the next next level Nash.

Know what how. How about this tomorrow around lunchtime? Keep an eye out your office this window of. I've got a better way to illustrate this to you. The next morning Jalan and to freedom house paramedics. Leave Pittsburgh at dawn and drive six Hours to New York City they pull up to the Ford Foundation's Office on Forty Third Street and throw open the ambulance doors welcoming passersby to come on board ladies and gentlemen step up step up step up to the most advanced ambulance the world has ever seen people take up the offer. It is this thing. That's a defibrillator. That was shock a heart during a cardiac arrest. What's that that's an open we put it in in an unconscious patients mouth to keep the airway open?

The ambulances barnstorm the country speaking to charitable groups. Kansas insist to Connecticut doctors far even took some of the Freedom House medics to Europe to showcase their skills everywhere they went. People were amazed suddenly the old station wagon style. Ambulances no longer seemed adequate. Cities started to feel pressure to improve care. Los Angeles Awesome Seattle Miami and others started services similar to Freedom House however there were still no national standards. The level of care patients received received vary greatly depending on where they live back in. Pittsburgh Freedom House trembled on Phil Jalan managed to keep the grants coming in but mayor flaherty made them a target of a personal vendetta. Dr Safar refused to back down from his mission to make emergency hospital care. A fundamental public service as much a priority as police force or fire department mayor flaherty on the other hand argued that ambulances were the responsibility of the private sector chiefly hospital so far was adamant that Freedom House had been staffed by white men. The city would have been far less resistant. He minced no words calling the mayor out for negligence and racism. Dr Savar needed to figure out a way to get around mayor flare shortsightedness.

Glad to be here for a sense of scale when we're talking about something like I mean you deforestation and for those of us who've never seen like cocoa tree. What does it look like? How big a tree? We talking about here well. The trees aren't very much larger than than a person stands quite different from the older trees that I've been taking down to make room for cocoa plantations. Those older ones. This can be scores of feet tall. So let's do a translation here. One tree equals what in terms of chocolate. What isn't so much? The tree has the number of About four hundred beans takes the produce A pound of chocolate. Wow that's that seems like quite a lot. The beans I. It is a lot of beans especially when they're they're being taken out of these big pods by hand and seen we have some great photograph. Progressive that with These kind of Milky Milky white beans being taken out of the pots and put out to dry. Well your reporting shooting specifically centers around deforestation for COCO and. I think it probably be safe to say that most of our listeners. Don't know where this is happening. Could you put us on on a map. Somewhere about two thirds of the of the world's cocoa comes from just two countries in west Africa ones the Ivory Coast and one's GonNa And they have a long history of producing cocoa there and they are the dominant players in the market. Why Ghana and the Ivory Coast? Why why these two places is it? Just the climate is it. Just the existing tree growth Why these places? Well that's a great question. I think a lot of it dates back to the colonial era When Coco was taken from their not so much the United States but more to Britain into France and I do think there are other parts of the world that you can grow cocoa Especially places like Peru and it's it's possible that we may see more cocoa from those places over time but I think there's a long tradition of doing it in this area well given that they are the dominant players. Here's in the market and I would imagine rather crucial for the income the livelihoods of a lot of people in those places. Absolutely what why why is why is deforestation. The only answer. Couldn't you manage these these cocoa trees in such a way that like say you could plant one parcel and and and harvest another and you have a sort of a cycle going. Well here's what makes this such Tough nut to crack so to speak You're dealing with a commodity that is hard to differentiate from one place to another. All Coco is basically the same. Whether it's from I re- coaster or someplace in South America and In the in West Africa it's produced by hundreds of thousands of small farmers bat. Maybe one and a half million people in Ivory Coast maybe another half million in Ghana so keeping an eye on what those people are. I'm doing all the time is very very difficult. And that's what's made deforestation in this area. So so tough to stop Now in terms of the Coca Oakwood farmers themselves. How much do they tend to earn? I mean is this. Is this something that someone can. A family can can live off the land just growing cocoa they can but they're not they're not gonNa make a whole lot of money. Most of them are at or slightly below or slightly above the poverty. Line for four were These kinds of areas and of course I guess some years you're going to have a better harvest and and other years it's going to be tough the usual vicissitudes of of of agriculture. I guess right absolutely I mean. The price of cocoa has been coming down in recent years and even though some companies have been paying premiums to get Koko that has been certified as not having come from deforested areas. The money at the extra money from that isn't enough have to offset the decline in cocoa prices in recent years helped me with something. Why is it that trees need to be taken down for new cocoa trees? Do these trees sort of cease to be productive active after a certain number of cycles. Well you're you're they plant the cocoa trees either underneath some of the big trees But more likely they just cutting all the big trees down to make room for the cocoa trees that tends to work out well in the for the farmer and at least in the early years the later years. It's GonNa be a problem because the heat is just too great. I see and I was speaking to someone today actually was Saying that at this rate nunnelee finally will there be decimation of old forests but that in twenty or thirty years will become increasingly difficult to grow cocoa in these areas. So is it because there just isn't the shade that's necessary for these cocoa trees because you're having to consume as much of the land as possible to maximize output right right and you want you want son in the early eras but you might want a little more shade in the out years. I see so it's not. That new trees are better. Necessarily it's just that the land is is being taken away for more cocoa trees will. The ultras weren't cocoa trees. The old trees for these extremely tall old growth trees that that play a particularly important role in storing carbon dioxide. They are taking it in through photosynthesis and then They're storing bring it in in their own In their own in the wood. That's that's a that they have. And and that's what makes this important and so when these old growth trees come down what happens then. Well when the old growth trees come down you have kind of two two blows to blows at at the at the climate problem one is that the big trees are no longer absorbing carbon dioxide from the air and processing it through photosynthesis but in addition the the carbon that had been stored in the trees released as these trees with their rot or taken away to into be pulped or to do something else with them. So it really cutting those trees down strikes to blows against The climate change problem. You've traced aced the flows of of the money here. And you know let's if we can. Maybe we should begin with the small scale farmers who plant and and harvest harvest. What is the road from there to the candy store Shell?

Gold copper all these are commodities that are traded internationally and cocoa is is very much like that. But you're saying that recently are the prices for cocoa have been falling which obviously affects the those farmers to Why is is that? Why is it that cocoa prices seemed to be falling? Well I think there are different things that can that can drive prices up or down. It could be whether but In this case when when the prices dropping it's probably because the small farmers have been ramping up growth in order to Stay out of poverty forty or take advantage of the growing demand for cocoa across the globe. So what you're saying. Is that the supply side of the supply. Demand equation is is actually a cocoa glut. is isn't We have a a mild coca glut. But yes that's exactly what's happening because the demand demand has been going up steadily people love to have their candies and they're are hot chocolates and let let's let's pursue that just a little bit more because this is something that I find rather fascinating that yes it.

He hopes will take his company back to the top. That man is Alpo. He's a tall thirty two year old marketing executive and he spent the past few years helping helping turnaround Marzieh's pet food business. Now John Hope's poke can take his kibble knowledge and throw a bone to its candy. Line regaining regaining market leadership in candy is the priority Al.. Now how would you do. It already has a plan. It's the same one. He used a boost. Interest in the company's is pet food new products. I think John Brown's new products are a good way to lose money the new products. I'm thinking of will we. Line extensions will apply our established brands to new products to give them instant consumer recognition new varieties of EMINEM's snickers or or solid chocolate bars bearing the dove ice cream brand. You know things like that. Won't these just cannibalize sales of our big brands. Sure that's a risk but line extensions. I engines increased interest in pedigree whiskas and attracted new customers now. I see no reason why that won't work for candy to if people get excited lead by new varieties of pet food. It seems obvious they'd get excited by new varieties of their favorite candy to we should also launch new products that directly challenged her. So she's most popular items that way. We can limit their gains. John still worried about the risk. But Po sales pitch has convinced him. He stands up and extends his hand. Welcome to the Candy Division.

The chocolate war descends into trench warfare. Mars Mars launches a reduced Calorie milkyway Hershey counters with a diet bar of its own Hershey introduces kisses with almonds Mars.

Hershey's kisses hug my white chocolate. Her she has also I to spot the big bucks to be made from selling seasonal bags of candies at Halloween Christmas and Easter with its is marketing muscle. Hershey crushes the specialty candy makers who once dominated the holidays. Earning tens of millions in the process.

Snickers position as America's top selling candy and and even worse Eminem's are in serious trouble M. and M.'s have become so every day that people are forgetting about them. Mars ars tries reviving interest by replacing Tan. EMINEM's with blue ones. But it's not enough so the company asks New York Ad Agency. BBDO CEO for help. It's nine hundred ninety. Five and a Mars team is in the conference room. BBDO's Madison Avenue Offices BBDO creative director. Susan cradle leads the pitch. What eminem's currently lacks is personality away to stand out? Our your proposal is that we turn the EMINEM animated characters into a comedic ensemble. Each eminem color will have its own personality. Cradle clicks a button on the laptop rigged up to the rooms projector a lineup of computer generated. EMINEM's characters appears on the screen. We think of them like like a gang of court jesters read will be sarcastic backstabber. Yellow dimwitted peanut green will be the sultry when White Gogo boots. Blue is the cool one.

Eminem the same EMINEM's come in the bank ones one that I'm really glad you came by was because I'm all out of use. Peanut is I hear is delicious in writing the new EMINEM's characters shake off the brand stale image and sales start climbing again after years of decline. But it's too little too late by summer.
