Florida Makes Plans To Welcome Back Tourists, Revive Economy
"Florida is making plans to restart. Its economy tourism is one of its biggest industry so this would mean okay so tells. Beaches theme parks. Estate Task Force is releasing recommendations today on when that might be safe. Here's NPR's Craig. Allen Research shows the crow viruses spread by close contact especially indoors because of that Florida Governor Rhonda Satis believes many of Florida's attractions can be enjoyed safely. A lot of the things we offer you know it's more of the outdoors in the sunshine. And and I think that that's just a better environment to be in in Florida until the corona virus. Nearly one and a half million people worked in the hotels restaurants theme parks and related businesses. A young the CEO of the State's tours maiden see this week rolled out a marketing plan. That's ready for hotels restaurants and other businesses. Get the green light to reopen. Young says. The good news is that more people have been visiting. The states travel. Safety Information Page recently tells us that people want to know if it is safe to travel to Florida because desired visit our state still exists covered the saddest encouraging local governments to reopen beaches activities. Like running walking swimming while maintaining social distancing guidelines but in southeast Florida from Palm Beach to Key West. Some of the state's top tourist destinations. The beaches remain closed in Miami beach. The mayor says they likely won't be reopened there for June. That decision hasn't been popular with people. Like Phillip Goldfarb. He's President of the fountain blue a landmark Miami Beach Hotel. He says allowing resort hotels to welcome visitors without also opening. The beaches is a mistake. GonNa come and stay at a luxury hotel or a resort or a regular that you'd want to be a go to the beach Florida's largest attractions. It's theme parks. Also considering how to reopen the CEO of Universal Orlando John Spouse says handling potentially thousands of guests in a way that keeps them. Safe is a challenge but theme parks. He says have some advantages. Each are parts alone is over a hundred and twenty five years. Total conflicts is nearly eight hundred eight years. We have a greater ability to practice and enforce social distancing while still allowing guests to experience our parts at first attendants would likely be limited among the things being discussed is screening employees and guests when they enter the park encouraging face coverings and sanitizing rides throughout the day. Universal says it will create social distance spaces for guests by staggering seating on rides and shows sproul says it will also move to virtual lines already in use at its waterpark. We minimize the amount of time. Anybody waiting in any kind of lying there for standing in a group Waiting to take one of the attractions. And we're going to take that urge align technology and expanded to many of our attractions as possible as to win. The parks might reopen spouse. Would only say hopes it will be sooner rather than later. Dr. Eileen Mardi and Infectious Disease Expert at Florida. International University is not so optimistic safely reopening large attractions like sports stadiums and theme parks before. There's a vaccine or better testing available. She says we'll be difficult. Particularly the big theme parks draw individuals from all over the world. And not just from a community so it it. It's a much more challenging thing to figure out how to open those parks up safely. Industry analysts are divided on. How soon theme parks can reopen one analyst predicts Disney? The industry leader may reopen? Its parks as early as June but a report released by another financial firm. Said BECAUSE OF HEALTH CONCERNS. Disney's parks will likely be closed until January
Gender Inequality and Women in the Workplace
"Take a look around you on any given day and it won't take long to notice. Women don't have equal rights but there's one place where we find some of the more shocking examples that's at work statistics candidates with its latest numbers on the gender wage gap college and university graduates. Who are men earned more on average than their female counterparts worth eighty two percent of Canadian women viewed as over bearing if they had a strong opinion at work but on the flip side to that it's eighty seven percent felt men who expressed strong opinions at work are viewed as leaders and confident woman. Now hold twenty. Four percent of senior management positions globally. Those numbers are important because workplace. Equality is what's generally used to measure women's progress and the progress we've made can't be ignored but women still don't earn or own as much as their male counterparts and those positions at the very top of the power structure. Women rarely occupied them even when they do. The same challenges persist this is despite messages of empowerment being touted globally despite women being encouraged to have more confidence and to own their own careers. So what's stopping us from getting to the top and staying there? And how do we change it? I'm Stephanie Phillips in for Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Laurent mckeon is the author of no more nice girls a book about gender and power. An excerpt from her book recently appeared in the Walrus island so when we look at statistics of women in power in positions of power in Canada however we represented at the top Not Very well in fact in a lot of industries and spheres of public life We're not really represented at all and I think what makes it. Even more depressing is that you can see the disparity between representations sort of at the middle bottom where women are represented and then when we get to the top you know and they're not so for example thirty eight percent of all. Mba Students in Canada are women which is not parody but is okay but then when you look at Executive positions in Canada fewer than ten percent of women occupy those positions. So we start to see the disparity when we look at government has vote. We are represented among half of the voting population But then you get to the level of MP's for example we see that the number hovers around like twenty five thirty percent of most years and we look historically and only eleven percent of premiers in Canada. Have been women so you know it just once you get to the top. It's like where are we? We're not really there at all. So eleven percent. How many premieres is that actually? Eleven Eleven Hodel not even present so eleven total and the I was not elected until nineteen ninety one and one hundred and fifty years. Yeah those are kind of depressing numbers. So what happens when women do get to the top? Yeah I think we believe that wants women get to the top. You know. We're at the top and we will have the you know the power that we fought for for the C. O. You know we will run the company. People will listen to us. We'll stop having to deal with maybe all the B. S. that we dealt with When we were working our way up but that's not true. We have this idea of a glass ceiling and you know we shut her through it and then we are on the other side but we're not thinking about all the broken glass but still there once we shatter and in fact the stats. Here are pretty depressing. As well. We know that once women occupy the C. Suite their pickup actually widens to sixty eight cents For every dollar a man earns from I believe seventy eight or seventy nine so it. It dips earlier and on top of that. We also know that women like women. Ceo's are significantly more likely to be fired forty five percent more likely to be fired even when they're doing well like especially when they're doing well because it's like oh like well now's the time to get the white dude back in here like you know. Now we can You know really. Innovate and exciting. Again women are also far more likely to get hired when a company is in crisis. So it's forty percent of women are hired when a company is crisis versus twenty percent of men and we could say. Well that's great. That's because we trust women when companies in crisis but is actually a research shows that is actually because it's easier to blame women when things don't turn around and it's easier to replace them when they do so. There's this white savior effect where women people of color are often replaced by the white savior. Who Comes in and saves the company from you know the disaster that they put it in and it's all just smoke and mirrors to kind of maintain the power balances that were used to. Can you talk about more of the double standard between women and men when they're in the are in positions of power? Yeah a lot of women that I spoke to and and the research but you know women that spoke to feel that. They're kind of in the situation where they can't win. And it's sort of this double expectation Particularly when your power and the idea that you're supposed to be nice but not too nice and you're supposed to be you know a boss but not bossie or else you might get called another be word that is not as flattering You know they're supposed to be attractive but not too sexual authoritative but not mean and it kind of just swings back and forth until you're like well. What am I supposed to be like? You know I'm you can't win and you're left to follow this very narrow tightrope that is incredibly easy to fall off of. Yeah it's I think you described it as superhuman almost in your writing right yeah. It's the standards set like no one can live up to that. And you know we've found that when you inevitably don't live up to this impossible standard your judge so much more harshly Then men are in a working environment so I wanted to talk about the pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University. Can you can you tell me about a bit about that story? Yeah so it was a real story. Yes which and why emphasize that will become important in. Just a few seconds so in twenty eighteen other bridge collapsed and six people died and out of that real horrible incident Sort of this myth grew online until people believed it and it was the mid that an all women engineering team built the bridge and people created fake news actual fake news that spread and they cribbed all of these photos from the actual company that was responsible but from their international women's Day posts so they just pretended and made all these fake sites and links so that it looked like only women worked out the company. Wow and then a lot of people would say like well. That's what happens when you hire female engineers. No wonder they aren't in stem and it wasn't just on the Internet. I would hear this story repeated to me more than a year later or just regular people be like. That's not true. It's not what happened but it shows. I think the power of the kind of societal Gulab. That women are not competent in certain fields in particular he feels that are historically male dominated. I mean this is not the only time women have been blamed for something. That isn't their fault wire. Wire women the scapegoat when things go wrong. You know. I think that were just kind of we're primed for it in a lot of ways like as a society were primed to blame women. We blame mothers when kids do something bad and we you know wives when husbands. Do something bad you know. It's always the story of like well. What did she do to make him do that? You know that kind of a narrative that has persisted in politics and pop culture. You know we look back at history and literature. We're just so predisposed to do it when someone nudges us there we go the whole way. And then how does that play out for women? Who are in positions of power. What does that look like at the top were often really adverse to the idea of women in power and you know for a lot of people that I spoke to who you know started thinking about this or maybe changed the way. They approached power and leadership for them. A big moment in history was Hillary Clinton's loss and the polls expected that she was going to come out ahead. You know everyone thought it would be okay. Even though is seeing the herring that she took in the press and sort of the the hate that was happening on social media and and then you know she just became like this ultimate person. Who CAN'T DO ANYTHING RIGHT? You know. It was criticized when she got emotional. She was criticized when she was powerful. Choose was criticized for what she was wearing issues to five hundred masculine and she wasn't perfect of course but she became This symbol for everything like we don't like about women in power and when they get to the top they topple you know they become such a target That people just work very hard to take them down right. So can you explain the he skilled? She's lucky phenomenon. Yeah there's this phenomenon that researchers I've done what you just said that he's skilled. She's lucky and is this tendency that we have to would may look at men and women empower you know and whether that's in a very public position or maybe just like in in our own small company were man's promoted or women has been promoted and we tend to fall back into these very stereotypical traditional narratives. Which are like well. He got there because he's so good at this one account or he really killed this project and of course he deserves to be there and if it's a woman we say well she's lucky is probably because she's attractive or you know she was really nice to the boss or like and it. Kinda just goes from there. But it's not just other people that follow this narrative women fall into this narrative. Allot to you'll hear and that's part of how the term got coined because you'll hear a lot of women. Researchers have heard a lot of women that they interviewed like. Ceo's people in powerful positions when they're asked how they got there. Just had this like really lucky break. I was really lucky to be in the right place at the right time and you know kind of fell my way when I got really lucky with this one piece of success we ha- we buy into the narrative to in it. It perpetuates it. Gotcha I WANNA get more into that in a bid but I. I don't want to ignore the intersection of race and gender here so what happens to a woman of color who has the same qualifications as an a woman with a so called white name? Who's applying for the same job right? Power is so layered and our perceptions of power and who deserves to be empower and who's skilled and not lucky really becomes more complicated

"Hour. Sponsored by zoom. Conferencing are Matt piper. Sixteen states have decided to chew the Trump administration over its national emergency declaration last week when he announced it Mr. Trump suspected this would happen. They will sue us and the ninth circuit. Even though it shouldn't be there, and we will possibly get a bad ruling. And then we'll get another bad ruling, and then will end up in the supreme court. The multi-state lawsuit represents the first and most significant legal challenge to the president's controversial proclamation to date CBS news. Correspondent Nancy Cortez reports. Democrats will introduce a joint resolution of disapproval as early as next week. Even if the house and Senate passed that joint resolution aimed at repealing the president's emergency declaration. It's unlikely to do much more than send that's because the president's aides say he'll veto the resolution his first official vetoed of his presidency. Meantime, the president urged nNcholas Medeiros military regime in Venezuela to allow humanitarian aid into the country and reiterated that all options are on the table. Here's correspondent Errol Barnett who traveled with Mr. Trump, Florida international university administration's priority right now, they say is to get humanitarian aid in already. Over the weekend shipments of aid from the US was sent to Colombia and it's sitting right now on the border between Colombia and Venezuela this upcoming weekend. The administration expects there to be a major effort with volunteers on both sides of the border there to get that humanitarian aid in and help those hundreds of thousands of people who could potentially die on the heels of lists coming out last week of priests accused of child sex abuse and diocese here in the US. The Vatican drops another bombshell correspondent, Joe Rica Dunkin for the first time the Vatican has admitted it has secret internal guidance for priests who father children about Akin's spokesman told the New York Times document lays out suggestions for the clerics aimed at protecting the child it comes after the Catholic church in Ireland released the first public outline for those priests.

CBS's dean Reynolds reports it comes on the heels that song smell. It has seemingly only met with the Chicago PD once there was no law enforcement interview with small today.

"florida international university" Discussed on WRKO AM680
"Once again, here's correspondent, Alex stone. It was a brand new bridge. In fact, it we still being installed at Florida international university. The bridge was a big deal locally as who would connect the campus to student housing. No longer would students have to walk across a dangerous road. But before opening it would come crashing down onto cars below it was March fifteenth, and here's what the coverage sounded like that day. There are a number of fatalities and several injuries after a brand new pedestrian bridge has collapsed on the campus. Of Florida international university in Miami. According to Florida highway patrol there are several fatalities and a half dozen vehicles crushed beneath this pedestrian bridge right now the area is swarmed with emergency vehicles. And we have seen a number of first responders trying to reach people that had been trapped beneath the rubble we saw some working on their hands and knees digging through some of the rubble to reach those that had been trapped some yellow tarps have been placed on part of the wreckage perhaps to conceal where bodies are. But this entire stretch has been shut down across the Florida international university campus there was the earthquake. So me, and my roommate jumped up and looked outside and as soon as I looked outside. I saw dust flying everywhere. And I knew that the bridge had collapsed. There was one car that was able to get I guess they had just missed the bridge. And the back end of a car was smashed in the. Screens that were coming from the car was terrifying. Like, I watch every like everyone started sprinting towards the scene, and it's just so scary because it happened so fast. It was I started crying. I really wanted to start crying. It was terrifying. Like at first, I was just like, oh, we know. Maybe everything is. Okay. But I saw two cars under it. And I heard a woman screaming, and I said this is not good. Like, this is a serious serious thing that just happened. I'm maybe two hundred feet from the collapsed. I am. So rounded by first responders you name it fire rescue Miami Dade police for Florida highway patrol. It is the of a first responders trying to get into those cars that are trapped under this these slabs of concrete there are there are cars under there. I've seen several by self just completely flattened we're talking. I I've seen at least one truck. There was some type of panel truck. You know, how tall those things are now only three or four feet tall. This came down. And it came down quickly. I was on the ground just minutes after it happened here, and I talked to a witness a gentleman who was driving a truck. He had just pulled out of the parking lot and was turning in about to drive underneath the bridge became less than one hundred feet from being underneath it. When it collapsed key told me it was complete pandemonium. And at the bridge just came down. He didn't see anything right into it. He didn't see anybody the reason for to fall. He just said it fell and there was immediately immediate screaming and people running trying to help it is a very active scene. They're actually right now, they're bringing in another crane the bringing in great in front of me. They're just pulling it up. Now. I don't know where they're taking it. I don't know if they're trying to get it up closer to see if they can lift some of these peop- pieces, but they are pulling a other large Craig into position wait now as I'm on the phone came. Now, I'm watching it. I watched a few people have to get. Pulled out of the rubble. I think there's something destruction workers that they're still trying to get to. And I watched two people I have CPR performed on them. And I know that there's like I'm watching a bunch of firefighters and crawlspaces on trying to get the people that crane was telling you about they've got it. Hold way back right up against the bridge. Now, they're trying to get it in position. And they're going to try and see if they can lift some of this bridge up off from eighth street here. That's really the only way the only way they're going to be able to get into those cars this hundreds of tons of concrete and steel rebar that have smashed down on these cars, pinning them, and and unfortunately, pancake them to just a few feet tall. So they're trying to get that into position. They pulled the crane into the middle of the street. Now, that's where the most of the cars are just completely flat. And they're going to try and get that out to see if there's anyone any survivors still trapped in those cars, so they can get them out of there. It is going to be a long process. Even with that crane because as they start moving some of those pieces other areas, they're afraid are going to.

"Other party who is critical of that president or that president's policies and that that's just not the way the system's supposed to work and Brennan tweeted. This is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech and punish his critics, John Cohen. Thank you. Thanks, nice talking to you. We knew it was coming, but that didn't make it any less shocking. The diocese did not create written records every single time. They heard something about abuse. The grand jurors wrote the state of Pennsylvania is still reeling from a grand jury report detailing what it calls, credible allegations of horrific child abuse by more than three hundred priests. In this morning, people are asking, what about their superiors? What about the bishops and cardinals accused of creating a playbook for concealing the truth? And what does pope Francis have to say about it? ABC's David Wright is here tracking it all David by bread. So a thousand child victims they could identify and the report says the real numbers higher than that. And this is just one St.. Imagine if all fifty states did a comprehensive look through the church records, it's too difficult to think about, yeah, on a human level. Then what are some of the most troublesome allegations here? Well, I mean they're just horrific cases. In one instance, there's a priest to targeted five sisters from one family and continued to abuse them even after he was, he left the parish even after he left the priesthood and in case after case, there's a familiar pattern alleged in this report, and that is that basically the priests themselves were shuffled from one parish to another quietly, the cover up was sophisticated and all the while. Church leadership kept records of the abuse victims were they had settlements. They had nondisclosure agreements. We feel certain that many victims never came forward. And while the Vatican may have been alerted about all this, the general public and certainly the prosecutors weren't. Let's talk about the Vatican because this obviously reaches beyond Pennsylvania in these priests superiors. Absolutely. And one of the highest ranking. Ericans in the church at this moment, cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington DC for eighteen years. He was the Bishop of Pittsburgh, and he is named in this report more than two hundred times. He's defending his record saying that he always acted with an eye toward preventing future acts of abuse and respecting victims. But the report finds that in multiple cases, he may have alerted the Vatican he may have removed from their posts, but he didn't alert civil authorities and that allowed abuse to continue at the cops. We're not really part of that. They for them, David, these families might get the satisfaction of seeing these priests finally named, but nearly all of them are kind of power list actually do anything in court, right? That's right. I, in most of these Pennsylvania cases, the statute of limitations has long since inspired. We won't see very many new criminal prosecutions as a result of this. But what we might see is it change in the laws. There's pressure now in Pennsylvania lawmakers to enact new laws that would better protect people that would get rid of things like the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases, the. Nondisclosures for child sexual abuse cases and may even open a civil window
