Fresh update on "five weeks" discussed on Next Up. Student Success!
"Or doesn't even. Have to have a name, you can contact these organizations in volunteer to put your skills and knowledge and expertise to us, and then that can help you to catch up in in the end. You'll have a great package of experience because again, you would have had a pandemic internship, and then you would have had a regular volunteer experience in both of those things will help you to be well prepared to be successful. and well rounded. That's really good advice. Thank you. All right. Let's check in with our next student Jennifer wiggins. Hi One. My name is Jennifer Wiggins I'm a junior raising special education. In this semester has been a little bit different for me. has material. My classes are online this semester It has been a little bit trying, but I will say it's been going great so far Sunday stay on top of my word gain also make glading on time and also putting it all McCarthyism homework their do in my. Journal. So I will say that this far it has been pretty gristle. fucker. Right. So as you could hear, Jennifer is still on a little overwhelmed keeping up with everything but she has been journaling intaking notes. We did episode on that about getting a planner, Urbina intentional planning out your week. It sounds like she's been listening already. That's right. Yeah. Thanksgiving for. While, these are just few of the videos in people that have checked in this far all we please tag us videos we can cover it will post it on. Are you to with a given advise our architects and we'll post the student videos. Please just check in with us. Let us know how you're doing with your fifth week crates. Yes. So again, we're starting the fifth week of this and tactical semester, which is really unique. So if you WANNA, send us a video you WANNA post a video and tag with tag should they used trust in to tag US make sure They should tag us on our county next pod, but the Hashtag should probably be. Has Week five check. Okay. Great. So they so use the Hashtag week five check so that we'll know that you posted something and we'll look at all the videos will look at all the comments that you have. You can. You can't comment on this episode when we posted as well and if you have questions or if you're having challenges, we promise will respond and we'll help connect to resources that that's what you need us will.

The New Backend Engineering Lead at TextUs - Brittany Martin
"By corner of the world is very different and so I think I've kind of alluded to it on some of the episodes we've recorded up to this one but nick, you are my very favorite co host. So of course, I waited until you were back on the podcast so that we could discuss all the changes but I have recently shifted roles. So I quietly changed my linked in quietly changed my twitter and my get hub but I am the new engineering lead for the back end at text us. Congratulations that is that is huge right I don't even know where to begin but. I guess the best place is at the beginning. So how long ago? Did you kind of find your way into the world of Texas yeah. So ask the listeners know I've been at the trust for about five years, which was fantastic because I leveled up. So much of the trust, a lot of my conference talks that I gave came from the work that. I was doing at the trust I loved those working at a nonprofit affecting the arts and the Pittsburgh community because when I came back from San Francisco, I really wanted to get re-involved with Pittsburgh and there was no better place to do it with the trust being a small nonprofit and you know there was only so many places that I could grow up words. I decided to start considering my options, and so I came across Texas and text. US. Basically is a business class text messaging software and they're built in rails, which of course, is very important to me as the host of this show to continue working on ruby on rails. So you know I have bet my career on it. And the Texas currently serves the ASS staffing recruiting industries mainly though they also serve a lot of different industries but it's a really interesting and complex code base and they use a lot of the dry principles, which is that I was somewhat familiar with, but I hadn't worked one on one with. So how about you neck? Have you used a lot of dry rb? So when you dry principles, do you mean like actually using like dry rb and the dry rb tooling and the ghost? Yes heavily on my goodness. So I have literally just wandered so far as hearing about it in a podcast or you know and I and I, think I follow the maintainers on twitter and reading about five never crossed that threshold to actually using it even in a in a toy up. So House have been. kind of seeing that world is imagine it's quite interesting. Yeah. I'm coming off of a code base where we used a lot of service objects. So in some ways, there are some principles there that are somewhat familiar where you don't stack all of your logic into your models and controllers, but dry principles. It's just it's very clean and I'll tell you that during the interview process with Texas, which first of all was a really fantastic. Interview Process and I hope a lot of companies have processes like this it my process probably took I would say about five weeks and that involved a lot of one on one in conversations with their product manager the CTO, their chief architect, my partner, who is the engineering lead for the front end and just really making sure that it was a good culture fit and then I ended up doing a pairing session with the chief architect and. What was neat about it is that we tackled some very rails lia problems, but then as towards the end of the interview. He gave me some examples of how my code could change to actually reflect those dry principles and how that is how they manage the code in code base and I left that interview just ceiling. So intrigued about how I feel that I knew ruby on rails fairly well, but just seeing it in that sense it got me really curious and I was like this is this is. going. To. Be Great for my career. It must be amazing to get another set of eyes because I have to commend you you know. There's A. Strong trend in tech where people you don't hear the five years that often anymore. I don't think you you see is short as eighteen months to I'd say, even three years I'd look at unlinked and say, wow, that was a while. So so it's definitely you know there's all the. Normal aspects of changing changing a job but I think from a code aspect just saying these different ideas you know and. It's like a super learning experience all over again if you're around a bunch of intelligent people working in this code base and and especially with tooling that you may not have used before so must be. An absolute thrill.
Why Lionel Messi Wants Out of FC Barcelona
"Sam borden six years ago we were in Brazil together and my facial hair situation was not good. I mean that isn't what stands out for me Pablo but. I think I. Think we all have different memories of experiences. SAMBORN is a global sports correspondent for ESPN and kind enough to forget the unfortunate beard I grew for five weeks while we were covering the two thousand fourteen World Cup it's actually kind of funny right I mean now World Cup in Brazil Lionel Messi was a big part of the story there and obviously is a big part of the story today to. We got to see Leo Messi in a World Cup final Sam and you fast forward six years and I bring you here today because Messi announced last week that he wants to leave F c Barcelona after a nearly seventeen year stint. Tell me why this is a big deal. The obvious answer is that Messi is the most famous athlete on the planet may be one of the most famous people in the entire world. He is not just a generational star he is a star that defines a sport. When you talk about people that are known all over the world for being absolute craftsmen absolute artisans at what they do messy is that guy? Governor. From the magical. Curiel who knows? He's a little guy from Argentina, who is an absolute wizard with a soccer ball? Hey, just tonsure. RIP UP OF REASON A perennial. He's magical. He's calculating. He's one of the most creative players with sport has ever seen. I said. I think one of the things that has always made him even bigger than just. As, see and other sports these his diminutive stature, he's not a giant he's not the one of these massive bodies. I've been in front of him several times and I'm five ten and I looked down on him quite a bit. To me that's what makes him during and beloved by so many people is that he kind of Rome's among giants and somehow finds a way to succeed in a way that no other player ever has coming up with gold medal messy. He made Barcelona. The juggernaut that it is today and him moving on that say massive seismic shift, not just in soccer but in sports.
Why My Mother Has Two Phones
"A micro audio book about life in befuddle men just for you. Our story this week is from BB, Nicholson who you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is. Why my mother has two phones and why it's driving me crazy. My mother lives with me. She is one hundred and one, and she is as attached to her telephone as a phone addicted teenager. Where's my phone? She asked every thirty minutes when she first moved in which led to a massive search that involve digging through the crevices of her recliner shaking out the blanket that covers your lap groping under her chair rippling through the overflowing contents of her Walker and delving into the pockets of pants, which is usually where we found it. It isn't a smartphone and she doesn't use the camera figure. She doesn't use any features for that matter. She has a flip phone. All she needs to do is flip it open to answer which is sufficient for the ten to fifteen calls. She gets every day he yes you heard me right she gets ten or fifteen calls a day. Sometimes she talks for several minutes laughing answering questions and ending the conversation with I. Love You too when she hangs up and I asked her who it was. She says I have no idea. She got a call the other day from a stranger who said, do you WANNA prayer today? She hung up on them My brother and sister called several times a day just to check up on her and their favorite topic of conversation is food. What did you have for lunch? That's sounds good. What's for dinner? I don't know what bb is cooking, but I guess I'll have to eat it whatever it is. Mama's phone is her lifeline to the outside world even when she doesn't know who's calling or even if they only talk about food. But two phones are one phone too many. By now you're probably wondering why she has to phones and this is where I need to confess. She used to have one phone and I accidentally washed it. I sent it through the washing machine when I put in an armload of clothes and the phone came out laundered and dead my brother and sister told me to immerse the phone in rice which I did but it didn't work phones don't often survive a trip through the washing machine. My mother is on my brother's family phone plan and when I told him, I washed it, he said he would get her another one in the meantime. She couldn't go phone homeless try taking the phone away from your teenager and you will know what I'm talking about. So I got her a track phone from Walmart called the relatives and friends who are responsible for her ten or fifteen calls a day and gave them the new number. Mama was happy again, five weeks later, my brothers new phone arrived I called family and friends again and told them to switch back to the old number. This sounds like a simple thing to do. But it isn't her relatives and friends are a decade or two younger than she is, which means they are in their eighties and nineties some of them don't here. Well, some of them don't process well and none of them understand why a woman who is one hundred and one has to phone numbers into months. But we finally got it straightened out. Everything was fine for a few weeks until something terrible happened. I washed her phone again. I had been checking her pockets carefully before every wash until I didn't. So after ruining her new phone I reactivated her track phone only this time around I ordered a phone pouch on a lanyard she tied the pouch to her Walker and her phone dangles in front of her all day. There is no chance I will wash a phone in a pouch on a lanyard tied to a walker. I had to call those same friends and relatives and tell them her number had changed again, which confused them but I finally got the message across and they began using her track phone number. Then my brother sent her another phone because she's on his family plan. Now. You've got to call everybody and tell them her number is changed again smirked my sister who was visiting when the new phone arrived. It's not going to happen. I can't deal with it I said, and that's why my mother has two phones. They both fit in phone pouch and she gets to decide which one to answer when somebody calls. It's a bit of a challenge. She already thinks she's getting a phone call whenever the phone rings on television. That was the phone on TV Mama. You didn't get a call I tell her from five to fifty times before she catches on and puts her phones back in the pouch. Sometimes, she answers the wrong phone, and by the time she gets to the other phone stopped ringing. Then I have to call back whoever it was because she can't see well enough to dial. But it's worth it if it keeps Mama happy I
Joe Biden leads President Trump in national poll
"His past week the Democratic National Convention took place this coming week Republican convention will be happening as well and with both of these happening, we are firmly into the general election. But what do the polls show about the state of the Presidential Race Joe Biden continues to maintain lead but that is narrowing and while Biden, has his supporters. Voters are really more united opposition against President trump for more on what all the polls are saying right now, we'll speak to Stephen Shepherd politics editor. At politico. We got a boatload of polling over the past few days leading into the two conventions here and but it shows is some slight tightening from earlier in the summer when Joe Biden was up routinely around ten or twelve points in the polls over president trump that now averages out just seven or eight points in a number of those polls tightening slightly one poll tightened a lot more. But that looks like more of an out wire a couple of polls actually showed Biden's lead. Widening those look a little bit like out lighters overall, it shows a slightly tighter raising. You're absolutely right about this being the kickoff really for the general election, we have the two party conventions. By the following week you first absentee ballots and a swing state North Carolina, go out to voters in the mail the week after the Republican convention. So we're talking about really the election is as we are going to know it in this sort of pinned era really being on our once we. Get through these conventions and it's GonNa be interesting to see because usually when we have a convention that party gets a bump and with the Democrats Convention being virtual and who knows how exactly how the Republican convention is GonNa play out are those bumps going to be comparable? Another thing that we're seeing is that or Joe Biden it's not necessarily hey, we support Joe. Biden. We Love Joe Biden. There's some of that but most of his vote is coming in as opposition to president trump. This is something that I think. We've looked at over the course of the past few months where you see a relative enthusiasm gap when you ask people how enthusiastic they are to don't folded ended it president trump's supporters and. Whether it's in parentheses or on social media are very active here his rallies or about him horror. So Biden, it is more about for his voters seems to be more about kicking out the incumbent president and NBC News Wall Street Journal poll out on Sunday Fifty, eight percent Biden supporters said there was more about opposing trump just thirty six percents that it was about voting for Biden for. Trump voters, seventy four percents they were voting for trump because they meant it as a vote for trump only twenty percent of trump voters they meant more as against Joe by. So you have this kind of asymmetry where go Biden's voters are enthusiastic about voting. They're just a disaster about voting against president trump not necessarily copilot and it'll be his challenge over the next couple of months to keep. Those voters in the fold one point I wanNA make on Convention bounces is Democrats as may recall or initially supposed to hold their convention in the middle of July five weeks ago. The idea was having an earlier convention would give them momentum through the summer carry through the Olympic Games would have been in the early part of this month would be ending right around now and that would set. Their nominee up well, even going into the Republican convention. In late August, obviously, they put back hoping that they could buy some time and still have an inverse invention with that didn't happen. We're stuck with these back to back virtual conventions and I think that's going to blunt both the virtual nature of the conventions, and also the timing factor Republican convention begins just four days after the Democrats conclude. Limit what kind of momentum each party I think can get out of this four-day infomercial that part looking to put on over the next couple of weeks. What kind of bump did the naming of Kama Harris as the running mate for Joe Biden? What kind of bump did that provide I know and the first forty eight hours they got forty, eight, million dollars. So the fundraising part of it was kind of their but polls, what were they saying about it? Well we see only a few polls conducted after Joe Biden named his running mate and they're pretty consistent with the polls that were conducted right before earlier last week. So I don't know that it changed the race a lot but what we saw is overall voters telling pollsters that they approve of the choice Joe Biden made arguably a safe choice choosing an experienced candidate who has exposure on the national stage voters got to know her during her presidential campaign in twenty nineteen CBS News of a Washington. Post. CNN. SRS sound maturities practices choice to that's not uncommon majorities approved of John. McCain's choice of Sarah Palin in two thousand eight in the first days. Obviously. Whereas well with voters over the closing couple of months of that campaign. So it's not unusual for there to be enthusiasm around the right after it's made the Salads or Democrats and for Kamo houses to keep that going the her momentum going through the convention this week, and obviously the other key moment for her and for Vice President Mike Pence Day or debate in early October
Ole Miss Coach Lane Kiffin on college football in a pandemic
"Really looking forward to this next guest. He's Lane Kiffin head coach at Ole Miss and coach Kiffin joining us from campus as. The rebels still have a little bit of time to coach. How's it going? Good afternoon great. I'm really looking forward to the interview to all on the same page well. Okay You promised me the other day you tape the coaches meeting last Thursday morning, and you're going to play it for us with all the descent going on. So can you just hit the play button and we'll all sit back and listen. I don't think that the commissioner be very happy about that. Paul. It was interesting call. Well, we we've been reading about it and and I know you pretty well, I doubt that. You were one of those complaining, but I would imagine you. You've been part of this league twice now What's it like? Being reunited with all your esteemed colleagues. Well, it's interesting I. Didn't realize until that first SEC meeting that we had in Birmingham this time around and I believe if I'm right coach saving, myself were the only ones. Were the only ones in the meeting that were there in whatever two, thousand nine in Tennessee won the day I took the job. So I just saw today and I realize you're your coaching football you're not in charge of the stadium, but I thought governor a few minutes ago in Mississippi governor reads announced that there would be I think twenty percent capacity that's not the big news. The big news is no tailgating. The I know that doesn't affect you as a coach, but it does affect the fans does it not? Yeah it does but you know it is what it is and You know good decision you know based off of social distancing issues in the spread. So a lot of decisions are being made like that that you know people aren't happy with, but you know people really for the most part following protocol with Corona and everyone's talking about the students. But you know I drive through downtown. I, see pictures on the Internet you know most aren't falling either so that makes it really difficult to open up the grow. Yeah I it is a big deal but know Miss Missile one season coach I on on the the more important issues of football team back we talked to you some time ago and that was before voluntary workout had had commenced how how's it feel now and what are you seeing and sensing? From your football team. What are excited to be back? We've had three practices and you know. They're always excited this time of year, but you know to have it taken away from them from Spring and then potentially not playing all at one point You can see how excited they are to be around, and so like I've said before challenges not motivating them, they're plenty motivated the challenges them having disciplined away from here. So we can stop the spread because really at the end of the day, everybody wants to lift weights. Every wants to practice run sprints and learn offense defense but. Probably the teams are win. The most games are the ones that have the least players out for the Games because of Cronin 'cause they manages well. Yeah in on that front What are you doing I mean I realize the season's five weeks away but will there be a set of protocols and precautions not not the normal safety but just to make sure that your own units don't infect each other and you're you're left going playing Alabama at home or another key game without. Critical people I know you can't avoid it, but you can also try to keep them separated to some degree or can you? Yeah, we can. You know I'm not worried about when they're here I, mean we we've got you know team meetings that we have out in indoor facility. You know with everybody spaced out and their instead of the team room you know we split our special teams means you know so we never have everybody together and so I'm not worried when they're here. You know they do a good job and we make them. You know it's it's when they're away from here and then they go into an environment of the college environment and they look around and no one's doing it. So you know it's it's difficult for a young kid. Either looted do it a couple times and I realized there's only so much coach can say but how? What means are you employing to try to drill that into their head or do they already know it and you just have to let them do whatever they they think is right. Now I mean when we talk about it all the time, Paul and you know the biggest point them. You may not feel like you matter because you're redshirt your fourteen. But you don't you don't do this right you know and you you can infect to starter. So. Or senior that you know loses part of their season or towards loses the end of their senior year. So you know it's really a big challenge. Have you sought at all because we always when we get the schedules which we did the other night you you tend to look at, Road Games home games and man this school has an advantage here or there but nobody really knows do they when you go when you go on the road and there's fifteen sixteen, seventeen, thousand people, it's not going to be the same road environment and I know you won't know until you get there but I'm just curious if someone who is coach at a lot of different places and a lot of really tough environments, what are your thoughts? Well, it's GonNa be completely different. You know definitely won't need silent count that's for sure so. We'll be in Tiger stadium into the season and you know we'll be able to to. To yell the audibles to the quarterback on the five yard line. So you know it it'll be very different I think kind of almost be eerie as you play you know for the players you know like. Lap for the SEC this would be less than a spring game. You know attendance so. it'll be very strange.
Dowels Per Inch
"So you broken network cable that was in the ground Oh yeah. Is that right? Is it a cat cat sixty think for the regular incidents Jason Hansen it'd be mad at me. Jason. Helped me in solace. Up a half ago, we took a cable he was at one of the classes and his don't be this leading that destroyed one from the house he went looked in house and he said Oh all you need is a four hundred foot burial cable. You know woman a little bit more checks on the outside or tougher thing. So we went from the House across the yard about four hundred feet into the new. Black Barn. And today the guys who are doing the driveway. Because, he came up and he said you can say I just broke a cable. He wasn't took a little black wire as thaw. which is it's not a big deal but I have two laser stuff in a few hours. So I have to splice so that I could I'm GonNa have just figure how to connect my computer directly to the laser. Laser unit. The full spectrum laser so I'll figure it all out. So I just have a spicing kit somewhere I could spice it and buried again it's just a you know it's one of those things where you think like you plan your day your mind I'll have to this that a have to find this the whole package splicing equipment, which I haven't seen since a year and a half a mile and a half six this. Thing. They're widening my drive land on the barn, the my local landscaping guys, and he's walking the dog at eight o'clock to call me over his wire carpets out anything important. Stick it out of the ground to five foot pieces. Ten, feet apart like That's my laser job in four hours. Anyway it's. It's not it could have been a lot worse. It's you know these things whenever these guys dig a funny thing was once got tremendous trench to the electric from the street. They had to put three-phase cable from the street all the way to the barn and Derek from Maldon came over one day and he's like looking in the hall and he goes you know you guys cut a phone line didn't don't Cha we did. When he point he pulled in the hall had been dug for like a month I didn't even notice city because that's what he does for a living. In look look and it was a cable like about as thick as my wrist with about twenty thousand wires in it. Ripped right. Open idol even looking at it from one angle ciders thought it was a water of black water hose which water was coming out of it gets its abandoned but if you look at it from the other direction is like. Ten thousand wires hanging out of the, but they will cut very cleanly. And he goes how long ago did you cut this? They broke it about ten days ago he does no one's come to bobby nope because then it must be abandoned. Because usually when these things break, they know right away. Oh yeah and. Because there was a it was his is the bucket. So one half of the why was ripped out of the wall and laying face into the mud so I just thought it was a hollow black water to. And the other one was sticking out from the angle. You couldn't feel the wires anyway. And then about ten feet away in the trees have grown into one of the trees is A. Porcelain. Placard from. Bell telephone. And it's grown into it's gotta be from like the fifties on in the forties because half engulfed in the tree in his bell telephone. So that must be and then when we dug up a French drain by the Barn. By the other by the machine shop, which is about four hundred feet away they found the same cable. So it runs diagonally through my property right under every single holy Dick So. It's abandoned but the little tiny Internet cable, which is about as thick as a pencils broken and I'm gonNA figure six after we get off. labile learn something new. Yeah, it's a pain in the butt though a strip does tiny little wires and well, I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Try need twice I gotTA. Yeah I'M GONNA try to do a connector connector connecting connector. You know. A peace in the middle, and then just cover covered with like six pounds of lactate and put it back on the ground. Everyone's passionate. Everyone's punching this computers for now. It's not gonNA work. That's what people do. That's fun. Anyway other than that. What are you up to? What have I been up to whip building trailers didn't put a movie out last week as building trailers. We're building eight bullet Bourbon trailers that are going to go to Texas in the last ones I built over probably few weeks maybe four weeks four to five weeks considering the prototype. Now, this eight I started last Thursday now it's almost one week later and they're just about there about seventy five percents done. WHO's still out to do the doors for build bumpers but with a team here, the team that I got helped me out is incredible everything's moving along swiftly. And, we'll make tires. Sixteen fake tires at a plywood. In every single tired uses up just about one full sheet of plywood. And takes thirty minutes to cut because there's I didn't count this probably sixty pieces that I cut out like little arcs of circles we connect them together. To make related them together like a like A. Layer cake then six layers apply what makes up one tire. When fake tire everyone's like why don't you just buy tires because that means that I have to buy tires with Rennes connect the rims to something that's both if I keep it all would I could just nail screw everything. And if I do the cost analysis, it's probably the same amount of money to buy the plywood and take the time to put it together. But I don't have the the ability to just nail in screw I have to Baltin get involved all the Have to down the rabbit hole of using the trailer equipments connect tires as opposed to just using screws announced nothing has to turn so it doesn't matter.

How One Covid-19 Victim Was Lost in the Chaos
"Images and stories from the pandemic that will be seared into many people's memories forever. One of them was the discovery in April of rental trucks, holding dozens of dead bodies out a funeral home in New York City. The people found that day were victims not just of the coronavirus, but of a system overwhelmed one of them was seventy two year old nathaniel hallman. He lived in the Bronx with his wife Mitzi. They were married for forty two years. He repaired whirlpool appliances and in retirement he and his wife or a Deacon and deaconess at the Church of the Meek Baptist. Harlem they visited. visited the sick and shut ins in early April at the height of the pandemic and New York City home in was at a Rehab Center in the Bronx, where he was diagnosed with nineteen, the sent him to the hospital next door where a few weeks later he succumbed to the disease, but that's not where the story ends. It's where it begins our reporter Michael Phillips. He died on April Seventeenth, at Saint Louis Hospital and his goddaughter hope who is a very astute person. decided she would take responsibility for making sure that he was cremated and taking care of and and so his wife is widow. mitzi wouldn't have to do it. And so hope was under the impression that she had only seven days to get his body in the hands of funeral director, or the hospital would give the body to the city, and the city would bury him in a mass grave on Hart Island, which is a the Potter's field for New York City. One hundred and fifty years that the people have been left behind have been buried on on heard island. And, so she thought okay I've got a week to find somebody to take care of the body, and she started calling funeral homes, and they were all full. This was the height of the epidemic of hundreds and of New Yorkers were dying at a day on the day that that Daniel died three hundred eighty four New Yorkers died. And so the funeral homes would just overloaded. She called something like twenty funeral homes, and they all said we can't take him. Her Middle Son was even doing an internship at a Newark New Jersey funeral home and they were full to take Nathanielsz bodies. So she grew more and more panicky over the course of the week, and she contacted a family friend Reverend up in Connecticut, Marshall, Morton and Reverend Morton being in the you know the business of of being a clergyman new number of funeral home directors called up an old contact that he had named James Robinson. Mr Robinson worked out of a funeral home in Neptune City New Jersey as well as one in Brooklyn. And so he said, according to Reverend Morton I'll take care of this for you. I've got it and please. Please take the body down to my funeral home in Neptune. So the Reverend and hope son managed to find a funeral director, who would could drive the body out of New York to Neptune New Jersey Neptune city. And deliver it just before the what hope thought was the deadline at the hospital. They get the body out of there, so they took the bodies of Neptune city Mr Robinson the funeral director was not there. A person who was there said I'm sorry. I can't accept this body. They called up. Mr Robinson the funeral director. And this is where there's a lot of disagreement about what took place, but from the point of view of the family and Reverend Morton. What happened was Robinson said. I didn't mean for you to take it to. New Jersey Take my place in Brooklyn, this is something that that Mr Robinson disputes. He says he never said such a thing. The driver took the body up to Brooklyn to a funeral home called likely funeral services on UTICA avenue in Brooklyn. He dropped the body off there with the people who were there. They put it in. A refrigerated truck was parked on the street. And the family assumed everything was OK at that point. The body was supposed to be cremated on the twenty ninth so a few days later. And when hope called the the crematory to ask whether or not or godfather had been had been cremated, she got an answering. Machine were closed for maintenance the next day. She got answering machine message, but Never received confirmation he had been cremated. During this time news broke about all these bodies in Brooklyn in U. Haul trucks, and that was the same address where they had dropped off Mr Hallman. So hope began to panic and put things together. She called up the Reverend. The Reverend put things together. They all started to worry and at that point they tried to get Mr Robinson to explain where the body was. They tried to get a funeral home to explain where the body was tried to get the city. Medical Examiner explain where the body was, and they just couldn't find. It took until the fifth of May until. Finally learned that her godfather's bodied Nathaniel Hamad's body had actually been in the back of an unrefrigerated u-haul truck left on the street in Brooklyn, just a horrible horrible discovery, and it wasn't the end for Nathaniel. Family, who then spent several weeks trying to get his body and arranged for his final resting. What happened after this? There was another misstep when the bodies were discovered at the funeral home. In the U.. Haul trucks hope called the city medical examiner's office. They had come over. You know when the when the police got there and the after nine one one call reporting bodies and trucks on the street. You know hope called everybody. She could find the governor's offices. The attorneys general of the State of New Jersey and New York. You know. Where's My Godfather? And when she called the medical examiner's office, they had already collected sixty one bodies from the trucks and from clerk. Lee's funeral home itself, including many that would simply on the floor in various states of undress, and on the floor of the Chapel at the funeral homes just loaded with bodies. And so she when she called the medical examiner's office, they went through the list of all the bodies. They retrieved from the funeral home from the trucks. And Nathaniel Holman's name was not on the list, so for days and days she couldn't find out where he was. She even went over with Reverend Morton to the funeral home. Mr Clearly was not there at the time. Mr Robinson was not there at the time and she said. My father was here. Where is he and couldn't couldn't get an answer? And, what happened was and the fifth of May. That medical examiner's office discovered that the name on his paperwork had been reversed as hallman nathaniel so when they had looked up the bodies they had. When hope it call then they looked in their record, says he will what bodies we have. Do we have in home? It came up as a negative. The only had a home in faneuil. And by the fifth of May, they figured this out, and now remember he died on the seventeenth of April, so we're no weeks into this, and only then does hope discover that. In fact, her godfather had been in one of trucks and was now in the care of Medical Examiner's office. At that point, the the medical examiner said look. We have him safe. He's in. You know in cooled unit, so he's he won't decay. To be blunt about it. You can leave them here until you find a funeral director. WHO's able to cremate him? which is what the family wanted to do, so they held onto him and it wasn't until five weeks after his death. I think thirty nine days exactly after his death that they were able to get him cremated, and now his ashes are in an urn that his his widow Mitzi keeps at her bedside Michael. What else did you hear from city officials in response to this as well as from the quickly funeral home. The state authorities suspended Mr Claes. Licensed to act as a funeral director, and then held a series of hearings online hearings to decide whether to permanently revoked his license for you know poor practices, the ruling has not yet come out. They've had three hearings and the lawyers have submitted final closing statements, but the administrative law judge has not yet ruled on whether to revoke his license in listening to the at least one of those hearings, and in talking to Mr.. Claes attorney, he's basically the the argument is they were holding the bodies in the U. Haul trucks as they were moving them from the refrigerated truck which was. Recognized waited two whole bodies into the funeral home to be packaged up four cremation. And so he said we would keep them in the in the U. Haul trucks for a while and then move them. It was hard I think for the prosecuting attorney. I guess he'd be called the prosecuting attorney. Understand that because the argument is why not just move them from the refrigerated truck all the way into funeral home instead of stopping. This is just a matter of a few yards, so stopping and putting them in a truck. Mr Quickly. That's Mr Clarke's defense as well as his lawyer said to me. Look the whole city was inundated with bodies. Just wasn't enough. Space to handle the mall and so things happen. And he said that he thought it was unfair that his client Mr clinically was being singled out when so many other funeral homes were also overcrowded in his in his argument. So, that that is his defense Mister Robinson's defense. He has not been charged with any anything by the state. He has not been his has not been suspended, but in talking to him, his argument is. I never had that body. I never signed any paperwork saying that that body was under my control so everyone who says that I did agree to take control of Mr. Hammond's body is line. That is his argument. There are text messages back and forth in which he says that he would take care of the body, but he also said and give me the paperwork, so there's now a lawsuit underway Msci Hallman and hope dukes. Who is the the Goddaughter of Daniel? Hallman have filed suit against the he quickly home as well as Mr. Robinson And are seeking damages for what they describe of course as mistreatment of Nathaniel remains. Michael as you say, and as you've heard from many of the people in this story, Nathanielsz body was one of dozens discovered in rental trucks during the height of the pandemic. What did reporting out the story and what happened in this one case? Tell you about what happened here in New York at the height of this. So, what are your takeaways from this tragic story? This won't come as a surprise to anybody but. When the pandemic really hits and went really hit New York. Hardest I. At least in the United States of course. It just overwhelmed the system. The city and the people who who manage these things would just not ready for overwhelming the doctor. Was Internal Internist resident at Saint Barnabas Hospital. Who took? Mitzi up to see Nathaniel before he died is she would cry constantly into her. into a mask and goggles because there's just so much misery. All around her. And the same situation occurred with with the body's. Just the city. Wasn't prepared for the awfulness that that's that hit it. I can't judge whether they should have been more prepared. Or there was some mistake making made made at some point. That's not really within my capacity to judge. But, certainly, it was overwhelmed. And that meant that there are a lot of a lot of collateral damage and. Michi and hope, and of course Nathaniel himself were part of that collateral damage, and now I think. Between lawsuits and historians and journalists looking back at what happened. We'll start to peel that apart and figure out. Who did what who could have done things that were you know could have done things better and who who? Who did the best they could?
Philadelphia-educated South Sudanese political prisoner returns to US, recounts experience
"Educated South Sudanese peace activists who was arrested for criticizing the government there and spent a year and 1/2 in prison is now back in the U. S. As we hear from Kevin Abuse Tima menace he fled Africa fearing for his life. Peter B. R. A. Jack was released from a South Sudanese prison in January, then made his way to Kenya for safety recently that safety was gone. For the last five weeks. I've been basically living hiding as sort of a conservative Jackson The president of South Sudan wants him captured or killed. So with the help of human rights attorney Jared Genser and U S officials, he got an emergency visa so he and his family could stay in the U. S. Where he first sought safety nearly 20 years ago. I fenced came here in 2001 as a lost boy when I was 16 year old and now I'm coming as a 36 year old and when the time is right, he says he'll visit his second home and I kind of wait to be back in Philadelphia. Be back south and Central high school. To give them my thanks. In the meantime, he's calling for sanctions against the South Sudanese president and for free and fair elections in his home country.
Federal officers’ actions against Portland protesters raise fears of civil rights violations
"Today, police in Portland, Oregon, declared the ongoing protests. They're a riot overnight. After the Portland Police Association building was set on fire and exits to government buildings were blocked. Police told protesters they would risk being arrested if they did not clear the streets. For more than 50 nights, hundreds have been gathering in the city's downtown to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Last week, federal agents dressed in camouflage and tactical gear took to the streets, unleashing tear gas meeting protesters bloody and pulling people in tow, Unmarked fans. The state of Oregon is now suing several federal agencies, citing civil rights violations. Portland's mayor, Ted Wheeler, called the actions and attack on democracy and has demanded that the Trump Administration remove the federal agents from his city. I asked him if he's heard back. The only response has been from the interim secretary of Homeland security, and he's basically told us to stuff it. The problem were experiencing here is we haven't already heightened situation. It's already tense. But after nearly five weeks of demonstrations were starting to see that small handful of people who are engaged in criminal activity. It was dissipating. It was coming down. We believed a week ago it would be over by this weekend. What happened instead is. The feds stepped in with a very heavy handed approach, and it blew the lid off the whole thing. Mayor Acting's Homeland Security Deputy secretary Ken Cuccinelli spoke to NPR Friday night and he said that you quote hold back. You're law enforcement. Preventing them from using certain non lethal tactics. He cited 49 straight days of violence and destruction as justification for deploying federal agents are those accurate descriptions of your actions and what's unfolding on the streets of your city? No Again. It's rhetoric. It's the kind of escalating rhetoric we've seen from Donald Trump and the White House and he sent in the troops. Despite the fact that the governor are two United States senators myself is mayor and others have said. We don't need them and we don't want them. My residents don't know who a federal officer is a local police officer or a county deputy or a state comptroller. They don't know and they don't care. It's all the same to them. On Friday night after the federal police started gassing people. About 300 people came to my house and wanted to know why I allowed our police officers to gas people, which, of course I didn't and they didn't But there's a distinction without a difference in the eyes of the public, and I believe the president and his people know that well. The police in your city has also been criticized you about that. There's no question that in nearly seven weeks of nightly demonstrations, the police have done many things right and they've done something's wrong as well. But the difference between local and federal law enforcement Is that we have clear policies. Clear directives. We have a complaint process. We haven't independent accountability and review system with the federal government. They won't even identify who they are. We don't know why they're here. We don't know the circumstances under which they're making arrests. We don't know what their policies are. What accountability mechanisms There are to the point where even the U. S attorney here in the state of Oregon. Is calling for an investigation wondering where was the probable cause to pull these people off the streets in unmarked cars. Cuccinelli also said that this is a tactic that the federal government intends to continue, not just in Portland. And this is a quote but in any of the facilities that we're responsible for around the country, are you in communication with other mayors about this? Yes, I am. And what I can tell you is that this is coordinated by the administration. It appears to be a blatant abuse of police authority by the Trump administration is best is I can tell this is an effort a last gasp effort. By a failed president with sagging polling data. Who's trying to look strong for his base? And so he's actually using the federal police function in Support of his
Members Of Homeless Encampment Discuss ‘Lack’ Of Affordable Housing, Mismanagement At Philadelphia Housing Authority
"The city of Philadelphia has decided not to remove the homeless encampment on the Ben Franklin Parkway. After all that we're supposed to do so tomorrow, our city Hall bureau chief Hey, What about youse? Pat Lobe is live with the update. Yes, in the city had said the camp was closed. By nine AM, however, he camp organizers and residents resolutely refused to go. They said often they would not leave without force. Oh, and Mayor Kenny says using police officers to remove that camp is something that would be a last resort, something he hopes that doesn't come, too. And so negotiations have continued with the organizer's and as a result, the city is post calling the closure in hopes of reaching a literal resolution, he says. That's been the goal all along. And he will be meeting personally with them and hope that they can come to some resolution. The city wants to place the residents of the encampment who actually are homeless into beds, either treatment beds, covert prevention bed shelter beds. However, the camp organizers have barred at the city from sending outreach workers into the camp. They'll, just from the perimeters to the officials say they have managed to place 17 people on DA. The exact number of homeless people in the camp is not known, but it's got to be 100 or even more so they they do have a ways to go on that. But city officials say that will be contingent on outreach workers getting into the camp and getting access to the people there in Japan. I know the city has said the Kamman organizers have changed their demands several times. Remind us why this cabin is there in the first place. Well, it's a protest of the lack of services for homeless people or the lack of affordable housing in the city. In general, it was started not by homeless people. The organizer's actually go home at night to sleep and come back in the morning, but they invited homeless people into the camp to join the protest. And Ah, and as I said, the exact number who Came is not known, but it was, you know, certainly dozens, and, um, so it's been there for more than a month. Now. It went up June 7th. And so it's been atleast five weeks that it's been there, and the city says that it's become increasingly unhealthy and unsafe for the encampment to stay. It's on an athletic field that it's normal used before. Use sports. Ah, it not as a place to live and so again. They're hoping to resolve this encampment. Thie organizer say they won't go without immediate, affordable housing. That, of course, is something that requires a lot more than the city acting unilaterally. I love with this live pat, Thanks for the update that encampment on 22nd Street right along the Ben Franklin Parkway. And again, the city will not force the homeless there to move. Negotiations between the city and organizers of the encampment of this protest will continue. The city originally had said that tomorrow at 9 a.m. would be the deadline for that encampment to clear out otherwise police would move in and force them out. Camp organizer said they wouldn't do so voluntarily so police would have to force them out and Mayor K. Kenny saying today that I didn't want that to happen So again. Negotiations continue over that encampment along with Ben Franklin Parkway. Stay with

Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.
The Skeptics Guide
"We've actually been getting a lot of questions about some of the science and critical thinking issues, surrounding the protests that are happening and Statistics, etc, studies that have been coming out, so we're going to address those in the email and questions section because I think that's a good way to deal with issues by answering questions are being a little bit more interactive. And since that happens to be in our sweet spot, we might as well. Dig. In Yeah, yeah, well, we definitely. And we were talking about. What should we be talking about? When all this big big world changing stuff is happening around us. We can't talk about narrow news stories. But yeah, we want to do what we do best we want to contribute. What we feel is in our sweet spot as you say. Jay, which is, let's talk about the science evidence, the critical thinking, and maybe hopefully raise the level of discourse a little bit. We can do that so the quick covered nineteen updates. Storm. It seems like it's accelerating like there's just so much so many news items within one thing. That's interesting. That I wrote about earlier in the week is that? We've had number these questions. What was the effect of the lockdown on the flu season? Yeah interest in great question. Absolutely, and now we have some data, so of course it depends on where you are in the world. The covered nineteen hit the The US at the tail end of the flu season. This flu season was a particularly bad one at the upper end of the typical range. was there an issue with the vaccinations or no? There wasn't no vaccine was actually fine. This year wasn't the vaccine. It was just a bad flu season saying. yeah, there was between twenty thousand and sixty thousand deaths in the US which. which wasn't twenty or sixty minutes? That's sounds like number, two, two, hundred, ninety, six, hundred, and fifty globally, so the reason for the range is because did kill person or not. No, no most people who get the flu. Does the flu test and so then you have heard. That's right so clinically that they have the flu. So if you count justed laboratory confirmed cases that's at the low end, and if you count probable clinical cases as at the high end, so when we have ever had a flu test I've had A. Vaccine here, but I don't think I've ever gone to the doctor and the actually test for the flu. They just say Oh you probably have the flu. The extrapolation of what was likely. Yes, so studied basic patient. If you go to your doctor and say I have the flu, and they treat you for the flu that count, even though they didn't a laboratory test to confirm it was actually. Think they should even state the low, and then because it's clearly wrong clearly. Whatever? War We want you to know? We're basically just showing the error bars at this. Is Let me get. We're actually talking about so you're right. Chose really fascinating, so if you out raff out the numbers of detected a possible. Death you know typically peaks January February and then, and then to trails off through may but this year. Basically, it ended five weeks early like. A lockdown compliance completely shut down the flu season. But Steve You don't I don't want to sound like a jerk right now, but no shit, yeah! It no shit, because think about it, you know people are questioning whether or not the lockdown was effective, and this is an independent piece of evidence that yeah, it's effective. It actually does keep viruses from spreading around not just nineteen, but also the flu season. As you say, it should have worked, but it's nice to know that it actually did yeah, and don't forget. A lot of people were saying well. You know this. If this corona virus is so bad, why don't we do take similar measures with bad flu seasons and a lot of people were thinking like. Yeah, maybe we should take it more seriously. That's. That's a lot of people that die every year and here's here's. Here's more proof than that. If we did. Take it a little bit more seriously, especially in a bad flu season, and do some something akin not full on lockdown, but just being more careful with the touching your face, and maybe even more mass re could cut that we can cut those numbers down
"five weeks" Discussed on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer
"The precedents they are establishing here and realizing they've locked themselves in a very weakened position totally urine Florida. You're covering in the president this holiday week and the president has just been going after Speaker Pelosi on twitter. I wonder do you think I mean I've asked Democrats. They will not admit this. Well some of them will actually Debbie Wasserman Schultz admitted. This does does. His anger validate the strategy of Speaker. Pelosi what do so you think it's clear that the president is obsessed with this entire process and the fact that he does not have control over. Nancy Pelosi came into the speakership hip and showed from the very earliest moments during the shutdown last year that she was not going to play by president. Trump's rule that she had a certain amount of power within the system that she's using that power right. Now Oh and the fact that the president is tweeting about this constantly talking about it. Even though he's supposed to be spending time with his family and friends he's surrounded by his acolytes here in Florida. He's not in a comfortable position and I think Nancy Pelosi knows that and he's she's using that to sort of dangle this over him that as long as this plays out as long as the president is angered by the fact that he does not have control over this that she has some level of leverage. And she's going to try to use it to try to get something out of this trial in the Senate whether it'd be witnesses whether it be some sort of of a fair process and I think she is realizing that president trump is not going to keep his cards close to its. He's going to tweet out all of his emotions to- Lou Ola renita Anita Ron Brownstein. Lauren Fox Kylie Atwood. Thank you so much to all of you. The cost of chaos coming up in the trump White House. A new book looks at the relationships between the president and the top generals who were once part of his administration and now are gone plus. What's behind this week? String of suspected hate crimes targeting Jews in New York exciting. This is David Pain. The writer and producer of somebody somewhere a true crime investigative podcast every now and again a story comes along that makes you question your fundamental assumptions about human survival. Somebody somebody somewhere season to take you deep inside a murder mystery where three homeless teenage brothers have been charged with a double homicide in a story. Sorry that's as much of a search for justice as it is for hope binge somebody somewhere season to the jungle murders. Wherever you get your podcast six we have news just in defense officials say one? US civilian contractor was killed in a rocket attack in Iraq several us us into rocky service members were also wounded. This attack happened at a base near Kirkuk Iraq where U S service members and civilian contractors are located and joining. It's now is CNN national security analyst. Peter Bergen his latest book was just published. It's called trump and his generals the cost of chaos. And we're going to speak speak about that in just a moment but right now this attack that we're seeing it's unclear. WHO's behind it? There's been a string of attacks though against US forces in Iraq by Iranian backed militias. How big of a problem problem is Iran for the US? Right now why would say around also a big problem for Iraq can you think about these protests. Brianna that's been happening in Iraq Camilo the more anti Iranian in flavor. And and you really seeing a kind of nationalist Iraqi protests getting out in the streets thousands of being killed Protesting what they see is a pro Iran government which has caused the collapse lap. You know the prime minister to resign. The president's offered his resignation. So I mean this is all part of the largest scene which is there's a lot of unhappiness about Iran's influence in Iraq from my rockies and then of course some of that directed at the American troops remain there. But you know we are still in a war zone in Iraq was still in a war zone in Afghanistan we got an American servicemen. Killed Kinda assange in the last several days. I'm going away but of course the casualty raise really gone down considerably. But let's talk about your book named trump. In his general's he likes to say my generals right so he had a bunch of generals who were in his administration and started off with this sort of fascination fascination sort of a fawning approach that he had with them then. It changed what happened. Well I think you know. President trump went to a military style boarding school. He said it was like being in. The military made made a big influence on him. One of his favorite movies is patent and he had this very romantic views. The generals and of course the generals had also signed these never trump. Let's go back to the never trump kind of movement. There were hundreds hundreds of people who'd sign these letters. Basically they were not going to get jobs. So and so these these these generals John Kelly. The WHO became chief of staff has said publicly that he would've said for Hillary Clinton. I think a lot of signed up for it because of duty and some of them signed up also because of unhappiness with President Obama. Jim Mattis who was the secretary of Defense essentially with full out of office several months early by Obama Trauma Mousa didn't like a number of things that Obama had done in terms of not responding to the use of chemical weapons in Syria Putting a withdrawal date on Afganistan so there was a combination of factors. Why they said yes? You make the point that when it comes to foreign policy president trump actually has some things in common with President Obama. More than maybe you would think. What do you mean? Well once reported the rhetoric both of these guys come from outside the traditional kind of political. Oh apparatus machine candidates and they both saw themselves as being elected to get out of America's endless wars and Sandia Bama did that in Iraq at the end of two thousand eleven Certainly I thought about it and Afghanistan here we have president trump again sort of thinking about it. I mean he's going back and forth. But at the end of the day then sending big conventional armies into the Middle East is president w Bush Bush did in two thousand and three. They're using special operations special forces drone cyber warfare and the capital with the use of force. And this is a pivotal moment that I know you will. We'll be watching. We'll be watching it along with you. Peter Bergen as we watch what happens in Afghanistan. That's going to be the big question when it comes to president trump and his foreign policy trump in his generals Peter Bergen on shelves right now the cost of chaos. Thank you so much.

I helicopter in Hawaii officials say that they have found the wreckage and the crews are on the way to look for any possible survivors. This helicopter was carrying being six tourists as well as the pilot when it was last heard from yesterday and there are two children among them also tonight. Police are stepping up their presence in in New York City after new reports of suspected antisemitic hate crimes. CNN's Polo Sandovol has been watching this story. Tell us what's going on here Polo Gabriella the the number. There's certainly deeply disturbing here. Seven reported antisemitic incidents in just a week here in New York City. Two of them actually happened just today in one. Three women claimed that they were slapped by women in Brooklyn police say the female suspect told detectives that she did it simply because they were Jewish. And there's another incident that happened today a day a man walking into the global headquarters of the Religious Movement to combat in Brooklyn allegedly threatened to shoot and kill people inside the centre with NYPD. Tonight looking king for that man at this hour. Four other incidents took place on December twenty third and twenty fourth. You're looking at surveillance video of one of those incidents investigated by NYPD's hate crime task ask force In this you can see a man in religious attire. This highlighted in that video when he suddenly attacked from behind in Brooklyn by multiple suspects yesterday also also in another case. A Jewish mother reported being verbally and physically assaulted with a bag while she was with her child. So you look at all these different situations here all these different incidents so the regional director for the anti-defamation league weighing in told me a little while ago that he worries that people are simply becoming more numb to this kind of behavior. Because it's happening so much it's precisely why the M. y. p. d. tonight As we continue to celebrate Hannukah says that it is out in full force working with Jewish leaders to make sure that their communities feel safe and protected Brianna. Because if you remember it was just over two weeks ago that that community was shaken by deadly shooting right across the river New Jersey at a kosher market that attack driven by hatred towards police towards Jewish Communities Thirties.
