"So because of today's holiday to honor those who have died while serving in the military, we don't have any big government data releases. But we did on Friday when the commerce department released some key inflation numbers. The personal consumption expenditures index was up 6.3% from April of last year. That means lots of Memorial Day Staples are more expensive. But that hasn't kept people from buying them. From a barbecue in Brooklyn, marketplaces Stephanie Hughes has more. There was a celebratory vibe this weekend in fort Greene park in Brooklyn. Lots of people were gathered to barbecue. One group had a DJ, another balloons. Adonis reef and his girlfriend mahogany Stevens were at their own picnic table. Grilling jerk chicken and a T bone steak. That's a steak. Look at this thing. And that's a special thing. I'm just saying. That's a steak that you know. Stevens calls it a recession steak because it cost her so much that it feels like we're in a recession. Even though it's technically not one. Beef prices are up more than 16% from last year, according to the PCE price index. Other barbecue necessities like propane and festive t-shirts have gone up too. But Stevens was keeping it in perspective. Even though everything is highly expensive, it definitely is, but you can't go wrong. I got it. That's all that matters, you know? Stevens, who's 26, actually has a job as a caretaker of the park. Reef is 30 and works in a grocery store. Both of them watch prices closely, but it's been a long pandemic, and they were ready to enjoy themselves. You know, if we have extra and we can sit there and spend on that, why not? Lots of Americans share that attitude says Robert Frick, a corporate economist with the navy federal credit union. There's so much pent up demand, people are saying, all right, at least for this summer, we're going to travel, we're going to have fun. We're going to be with friends. Consumer spending was up nearly 1% in April from the month before. Back at fort green park, another picnic goer Megan Harris was philosophical about the state of the economy. It is what it is. Then, when it's all over, we all can have a little more money in our pockets, I guess. I mean, what else can you do? And with no uncertain how long high inflation will last, that question, what else can you do? Is front and center for many politicians, businesses, and consumers. In New York, I'm Stephanie Hughes, from marketplace. With all those consumers willing and ready to spend, are retailers, especially small retailers, feeling that demand, we checked back in with one of our regulars. Irene kesselman, who runs alley cat toys in carbo North Carolina. She sent us this dispatch just before the holiday weekend. We had a great Easter and now we are starting to sell some of our pool toys and outdoor toys. I have a lot of inventory right now. And a lot of that is due to the fact that from the very beginning of the year, I started seeing price increases. And vendors were giving us dates as to when we had to book orders. The other factor is that because we're still dealing with overseas production issues, I and my staff are seeing things that I wrote in January just come through our doors now. I just had a back order today that had a lot of bunnies and lambs. That was intended for Easter. And now it's over. So I'm kind of stuck with that. My manager and I will be going to Atlanta market in July, and we will be buying for the Christmas season. That's something that we will be looking forward to and I am looking forward to personally taking a little bit of time for myself. I am going to the mountains this weekend and very appreciative of that..

"So people who experience wildfires or hurricanes and other sorts of disasters, I think. Often have this kind of like, oh, fuck. I'm not safe from this. You're not safe from this. For so long it felt like the media was portraying climate change as we know it affect like poor probably brown people and some far away island. And so Americans were, if you read the news or insulated from thinking that this would ever really come home to roost for us and in the last few years, I think it's become clear that we're not safe. And wealthier people are actively working on ways to protect themselves and their families from the impacts of the climate crisis, but even they will not be able to hide from that because they still need to get their food from somewhere in their medical treatment from somewhere, and we are all connected. So I don't know. I wish I had a more fun answer, but I think the only equivalent that I can think of is it's more similar to experiencing marine life is the understanding that species are going extinct because of this too. Like these magnificent things that have been on the planet for millennia have no place to live anymore, right? If you think about temperature range and a mountain and you think, okay, well, they can't sustain temperatures over a certain amount. So species are moving up and up and up the mountain. But when you get to the top of the mountain, there's no, there's no foliage. There's no you're above the tree line, the trees have a grown there yet. There's no soil there, and there's nowhere else to go. There's no further up to go to get away from the heat. And the same with coral reefs. Corals can't get up and move, and there's nowhere nowhere to go. And so we have fish who are literally migrating towards the poles to try to stay cool and all of these changes are so dramatic and happening right before our eyes in our lifetimes. This is not going to play out over generations. This is something that's playing out over years. It's really shocking. And so for people who have a specific love of nature over time, whether it's as a bird watcher and noticing what birds are missing or that the birds are coming at very different times or if you're a gardener and realize that the first frost comes much later and springtime is changing to change when you plant things for people who have a more day to day intimate relationship. With any sort of species or ecosystem I think they're sort of a persistent low level heartache. About going through the world and seeing the things that you care about. Be so threatened and these things start to crumble. What I would love to do is a thought exercise. Okay. Is to play with the idea of certain experiences or struggling to find out. I totally felt like my parents are the coolest. And my parents were like, the Proto hipsters. So my dad was living in fort Greene, Brooklyn, when it was like super rough and he was a student at Pratt, this art architecture school. And my mom was living in Harlem and they would ride their bicycles and meet in Central Park and hang out and they would play the flute together and make homemade pickles and they had like all vegetable garden in the back of the brownstone they got in fort green back when brownstones were like 30 something $1000. And they had the whole scenario sorted. And then I came along and was just like, I've ruined everything. I've ruined all their identities. Wow, they were hipsters before it was cool. That's amazing. It was very cool. So we had like, you know, they were playing tennis while wearing white bell bottoms. I mean, like, the whole thing was impeccable. And here I am just trying to, you know, not.

You know, I fill up that dark, scary space of the unknown with just like, what is the most crazy Disney World version of this thing? And for that one, it was, I am going to make this show and I am going to star in this show and I'm going to make this app. And I was like, I'm going to do this. I don't know how I'm going to do it. I don't know how you get from step ten to step 15, but I can tell that step one is I need a pilot script, because everybody's telling me that. And I see it in other industries. You want to get into music, you need an EP. If you want to go build a tech startup, you need an MVP of your product. So I'm like, I need my MVP. I needed the blood on the page so I could go show it to someone. And I went and started writing that pilot at Baba cool a coffee shop in fort Greene, I would walk there every day from park slope. I wrote my first TV pilot by myself with only my name at the top. You know, the rest, I don't have a scientific answer for not ten steps away from where I wrote that freaking pilot right across the street is 40 acres and a mule studios and I met Spike Lee sitting outside of a coffee shop. He was sitting on the promenade about 15 feet away and he's unmistakable, right? I mean, everything about the way he looks and how he wears himself is unmistakable. And I think there are these moments sometimes where there's just a door, you know, and you can either walk in the door or not walk in the door and I don't know why in that day on that moment I felt the boldness to walk to the door. And I said, how you doing, mister Lee? You know, I'll call me spike. I was like, all right, mister spike. And I told him I went to morehouse where he went to college. I told him everything but I told him I tried to be impressive, you know? Oh, I used to work at Google. Now I'm doing this thing, my own consulting business. I just like started spewing him with buzzwords and trying to be impressive and interesting. And after 30 minutes, he gave me 30 minutes of time. He gave me his email address. Wow.

"Going to talk to a couple who actually did go into business together. Danielle bell and Pablo osorio are the team behind de pores, a dinner series highlighting Pablo's Peruvian heritage and Danielle's southern roots. The dinner series came about around the same time as their relationship and associate editor bettina Michael lintel wrote about them in the February issue of the magazine. But before we get into talking about diploid, Danielle and Pablo, tell us about how you first met. We actually met through a guy who worked at stone home after work he invited me to hang out with some of his work friends in Pablo was one of them in bed stuy. Is that where you were living at the time? I was living in boron hill. Yeah. Oh, but you were both in New York. Right, so he invited me to play Domino's without these kitchen guys. And it was actually my first time ever playing Domino's. And I won. I think the most games. That's the important thing to remember. Absolutely. But yeah, I thought it was cute public very quiet. He didn't talk much, but then I bumped into him again in fort Greene. Actually, at that kind of whatever sports bar, most? Yes. And so bumped into one another then. And I was headed to Spain. And I said, oh, and he refreshed my Spanish. Can you help me out? And then we hung out for about a week or two until I left. Oh, he claimed he needed a Spanish tutor and really. I didn't need one. I need a one. But you also wanted to hang out. Of course. Yeah. So that was how long ago? 11 years ago. Wow. Pablo tell me about the first meal you made for her. I know that there's a paya pan involved. Yeah, I remember her having that pipe and the wall had probably satellite, let's make a pay authentic valencian or civilian pay. It was with snails and rabbit. Oh my God. Where did you get snails and rabbit? It was the butcher and Essex street market. The paella was made when I got back from Spain. I think it was something that I thought could be fun, the love of dinner party. I love having my friends around. I want to kind of show them off a little bit. That's really what it came down to. That's why I invited so many people. Like you wanted them to vet him or you wanted to show him off. And knew they didn't like him. I wanted to show him off. So you're making this pair together for a big group of your friends. Pablo, you'd probably made paya before. You knew what you were doing. It's always hard to make paya because the pants you don't really have a burner big enough. But yeah, I've made it before, but it's always different. Never sure how it's going to come out. So at what point did you say to each other, we're dating now? I don't know. I mean, we're still not like the kind of people that celebrate anniversaries and have found this day we met. I mean, we have some idea of when we stored us fell for one another and we're, you know, how long we've been in each other's lives. You kind of circle each other for a while. Pablo is that how you remember it? Yes. Basically. Yes. I probably made him fried chicken really early into the relationship. Probably with greens that used to be my thing. Fried chicken ingredient. Well, I'm in with fried chicken and greens. I mean, you both clearly have strong tastes and strong points of view when it comes to food. Danielle, what was it about Pablo's cooking that inspired you? You know, I was actually talking to my mom yesterday about how Pablo's cooking has influenced me quite a bit. My grandmother's a great cook. My mother's a great cook. There's a lot of great cooks in my family, but I found that southern food can be really heavy. So last night I made my mom shrimp with wine and butter and cilantro and paprika and some other stuff, but she just really liked it and they said, you know, this is something I picked up from Pablo like just a certain amount of acid, a certain amount of brightness to the food. Even the stews have these punches that are just really great. I made I hide, which is iconic Peruvian chicken stew because I knew my mom and my niece would love it. I have to make your own chicken stock and there's walnuts and there's a more real and Pablo serves his over and olive garlicky rice, but even when the dish is really heavy with Pablo's take on Peruvian cuisine, there's always just gonna be something that's like really familiar, but then something that's just so different that inspired me 11 years ago and it continues to inspire me now. That is such an amazing description. I am in love with that. So Daniel, how did that lead you into forming de pores? That took a while. Divorce was kind of conceived at the end of that whole supper club, trend that was happening. I thought we were maybe a little too late for it. But I'll still thought that we both had something kind of special to offer. And Pablo tell me about the name da portis. What does that come from? Saint a Peruvian saint that he's mixed race and he's the patron center. I think animals or pets and television. These are patron saint of so much stuff. Pets and television. So how would you describe your dynamic in the kitchen when you're cooking together for your pop ups in your dinner parties?.

days from the mayor you replace A safety zero in on gun and gang violence We have to deal with the actualization of fear and violence and the perception because they both become a reality to people So I'm going to institute an anti gun playing close unit which is similarly disbanded by the current mayor And we go to zero gun violence Interrupted but the news flow is so important mayor that the district attorney elected maybe disagrees with you on that How do you put in process planes closed officers to protect the citizens How do you actually affect that Well suit is number one The distribution he prosecute crimes The police department we are risk people that is probable cause to believe they commit a crime And I'm not going to mix the two I think right now we are debated with

elect mister Adams This is Bloomberg we think about the markets We think about stock exchanges and right now as we know New York City has been the global leader in global finance I think that's still the case today The future is going to be a little bit differently We think about some things like crypto That is a big big growth business within the financial services industry and technology How are you going to make New York City a crypto friendly city A crypto leader and how that benefit the city Well part of the meetings I have been having is to bring together the whole Bitcoin industry And we need to do several things with it Number one we can look at what's prevented the growth of bitcoins and crypto currency in our city What is it in the way of that I met with the mayor of Miami and we're going to have a friendly competition He's extremely invited he has a Miami coin that is doing very well We're going to look at the direction to carry that out And we also want to do something else We have to build out a pipeline of young people that can build these jobs and understand the new technology because we can't have a one sided city where certain groups in areas are doing well and those in the inner cities are not I'm going to build the pipeline to success in the city Mer Adams we have to wrap this up as you go to Bloomberg television to speak with John farrow Good luck with that And I'm kidding But mayor Adams you walked in once is a tough kid in Brooklyn to the 88th precinct That's not tough That's fancy fort Greene I mean you're living large in fort Greene You've got to walk in to a fancy fort Greene or some of the toughest districts in this city is an ex cop with people who maybe didn't vote for you Maybe didn't get behind you because they have a more traditional view How do you make peace with the line officers of the New York police department Well first it's very important not to view geographical areas of the city during our current time Yes for green is wonderful right now with multi-million dollar homes But I was there when we were dealing with real robberies real crimes And I also patrol this city as a transit during the mid 80s Ryan and subway system with a radio that did not operate alone by myself So when you start talking about tough that's what I know It's tough given of the precinct after you are in a dishwasher going to school at night surviving education with a learned disability that was undiagnosed Tough is not something I'm afraid of and tough is not something that New York is afraid of We're resilient and we're going to be fine New York is bad Bloomberg radio Eric Adams with us he will continue on Bloomberg television worldwide as well mayor Adams congratulations and thank you so much for joining us as well Boy Paul is that a different tone from Yep I mean I'm not trying to get into the politics of it I will state as a fact That's a different time That is a different tone And it's probably reflective of what a lot of folks in New York City are feeling which is we need to kind of get control back at this city here That's certainly been one of the messages from mayor elect Adams And so again he'll have as you mentioned in your question those first 30 days boy there's a lot to get done And setting the tone I guess Should we give them longer than 30 days but to all of our audience worldwide and across this nation unfortunately what the mayor talks about on people's fears it's true It's across all income levels Yep everyone You just can feel it in the city Yeah And it's tangible Yeah And we've seen this before in New York City And if you have that under control if you can get that managed then a lot of other things fall in the place whether it's investment whether it's tourism but that's we've seen

Liz harris will be here to talk about what's going on in publishing world plus my colleagues and i will talk about what we're reading. This is the book review podcast from the new york times october eighth. I'm pamela paul. My colleague andrea elliott joins us now from harlem. She is the author of a new book. Her first book it's called invisible child poverty survival and hope in an american city andrea. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you so much for having me. This book is based on a series of stories. You wrote for the new york times. Tell us about that series and when you wrote it so my path to decide. He began in october of two thousand twelve. When i was on the investigative desk at the times and i was trying to find a way into the story about the city's homeless crisis and i wanted to specifically find a kid to write about and at that time there were more than twenty two thousand children in the shelter system is a crisis that continues to this day but the numbers have dropped significantly with the eviction moratorium at that time dot population would fill madison square garden just to give you a visual and so i was standing in front of Auburn family residents which is a homeless shelter city. Run that was decrepit place in fort greene brooklyn which had become a kind of beacon of gentrification it really captured what was happening in all around brooklyn after two thousand when people just came in and began to revitalize it would be one way of describing it these neighborhoods to the people who had been living there for decades many of them families black families brown families. It felt very much like they were being pushed out and that was the world designing was growing up in on. Never forget the moment that i met designee. I was standing outside the shelter. And the first person i saw her mother chanel shows walking out with her children trailing behind her in single line formation. She looked like a drill sergeant and that image of them that first image the seven children and the baby in the stroller really has stuck with me all these years later because it said so much about them as a family their unity there's the strength of their bond the discipline that they showed in how they navigated the streets. Chanel had grown up on a very different street than the sanni. She'd grown up in the eighties in eastern brooklyn in a predominantly black and poor neighborhood separated from wealth separated from lighter skinned people. Mother named her for the perfume that she spotted in a magazine dishonor. Her daughter was growing up in a world at very in the modern american city. Essentially which is a place new york and other places like it. This is a city where the rich and the poor live in striking proximity. And the thing about the sony that struck me immediately was just how quintessentially new york she was. She's such a new kid. She was so alert and funny in curious in tough and she had so much to say and she had this incredible sense both of the injustice of her life. Her family was living all ten members of her family crammed in one room at the shelter. They've been living there for years. I remember saying to her at one point. Your mom has a lot on her plate and she said i've got a lot of plate and she started naming the things on her plate and they were metaphors Like the macaroni was her parents. And the collard. Greens were her. Siblings is really talking about her plate. She was talking about her plate plate as a as as a child who had to deal with such great burdens and she was eleven years old at the time designing was eleven years old when we met and she was the second oldest of eight children and really kind of third parent in that home. Her parents are married but she would do so much in the morning right. She'd wake up around dawn goto her window and look at the empire state building her first moments of quiet. She did this every morning. This was her routine because she liked to as she put it to me. See what was going on out there. It made me feel like something's going on out there so that aspiration was always just a part of her character from the very beginning. It struck me as something that just kind of defined her and even her very name is aspirational. Her mother named her after the bottled water. That just come to brooklyn as part of this new moment of gentrification where she wondered who could even pay for water then she would get her siblings dressed and ready for school and by the time most children in new york city are waking up to go to school to sanni had been working essentially for two hours and she herself would arrive often late in hungary to her own school which was a kind of second home for her and for children in the city. Who are poor york. Public school system is a second home or sometimes the primary home. I wanna talk a little bit about the behind the scenes how the sausage gets made with a story like this and would eventually obviously became a buck. You started off wanting to write about homelessness in new york city in poverty in new york city. How do you figure out. This is the person that we're going to hang the story on build it around because it's not the opposite way around right where you suddenly saw this girl and then realized i need to tell her story. Were there other people that you considered and what made you decide dasani as the right person for this piece. I've always believed is a journalist. This story shows itself to you and you just have to do the work of being there and being present for as long as possible until it becomes more clear. I think in the very beginning i thought this would be a principal person but that in fact in the very beginning i had three families i was following at that shelter and i had this approach that allow journalists take that we need to capture three different families to give a sense of the spectrum of experience but i think becomes more important to the reader is to be able to identify deeply with one story one protagonist and follow that person and this has happened in prior works of miami. Did this with mom. In brooklyn i spent six months with him was not my intention in the beginning. He and dishonor very different people but there are similar in this in in one way. Which is that. They are people who want to talk and feel unheard so i felt drawn to her. I think because she was unlike most children. And i am the mother of two girls. So i i know this well. She was somebody who at a very young age could articulate in moving and profound way her experience. And that's a rare trait even at in adults. She was aware of the injustice of her life and she was aware of that something else that was outside her window that thing that she was always during the morning which was the the tower lights of the empire state building and wanting.

Seligson, an assistant professor at Villanova University, and former U S diplomat says piling pressure on China is only going to make Beijing defensive. I think that leads to a lot of accusations, and eventually someone decides to defuse it by coming up with some sort of face saving agreement. But I don't think it actually leads to science. And that means it may make it harder to find the answers that everyone is looking for. John Rue Itch NPR news. The issue of school safety agents and who they report to has long been a contentious topic in New York City, public schools and now mayoral candidates tell us how they would bring change to that system. W When my CI's Glen Hogan starts the story with one student's experience when a student named Royal Highness allow was a senior at McKinley High School of the Arts in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, about to graduate and head to college. Something happened that led him all of a sudden to be facing two years in prison. At that time, I thought I was going to Tom like, damn room. Just turned 18 by the gold top already, like he's referring to Rikers Island. I thought life was over. A backup team of school safety agents have been called to his school one day in February of 2020. They were looking for a student but grabbed the wrong kid. A friend of, alas, video shows the officers pushing the team down the stairs and out the door of the school, while an agitated crowd of onlookers surrounded them. There's a full wars had the love. We made the citizens happen, or that it was a lot a lot says he tried to protect his friend and tussled with one of the officers. Before long. He was hauled out of the school in handcuffs. He spent the night in detention at the precinct and was charged with assaulting an officer. A felony offense. I wasn't told me guy and go looking for trouble. A year later, his attorney said. The Brooklyn D a dropped the charges. The NYPD confirmed the arrest but didn't respond to a request for further comment. Most interactions with school safety agents don't end like this one. But reform advocates say allows experience shows how wrong things can go and quickly when school safety agents are involved. Because there are part of the N Y P D. They say there are so many other ways to handle conflicts that don't end in handcuffs and an arrest. They've been pushing to remove police from schools for years, And in recent weeks, youth activists have been forcing mayoral candidates to address that issue on the campaign trail. If elected, Will you make sure York City schools are police free schools and the recently a coalition of youth groups hosted a mayoral zoom forum? Yes. Thank you. Maya. Yes, John? Yes, Three of the candidates. Diane. Morale is Maya Wiley and Shaun Donovan said they'd remove safety agents from schools altogether. Donovan wants to train safety workers in de escalation techniques and child development. Murali says she would use the $400 million in the school safety budget to invest in mental health services advertising school safety. That's Kathryn Garcia. She, Eric Adams and Scott Stringer disagreed with the other candidates. Stringer says he wants to keep school safety agents but add more guidance counselors and social workers. We should not have school safety officer doing discipline and intervening. With kids. That's for guidance counselors professionals, But I do think they're an important resource. Mayor Bill de Blasio has made some changes over the years a 2019 agreement between the NYPD and the D. A. We called for fewer arrests and emphasized de escalation, but there are still more school safety agents in public schools and guidance counselors and social workers combined. Now, the city has agreed to shift oversight of school safety agents from the NYPD to the Department of Education by June of 2022. While advocates say that's not enough There are groups who oppose any changes at all. Teamsters Local 237 represents school safety agents. Greg Floyd is the union president. The parents that I've been talking to outwait because they know the dangers And I look city public schools, according to Floyd, In a recent two year period, agents confiscated 2700 weapons, he says. Candidates for mayor who want to get rid of school safety agents are out of touch with the realities of public schools. I guarantee you they would have teachers on strike. Principles out. Schools, close parents that sending their Children to school because it would have to be safe after what he went through. Last year. The student Allah says he agrees with moving school safety agents to the education Department. They need to be more connected to the students and being under the NYPD. It stops them from really doing that, or we do, Seamus cops. Yes, and how That plan gets carried out will be up to the next mayor. When Hogan W N Y C news Yeah..
