Antisemitic celebrities stoke fears of normalizing hate

"Violent attacks against Jews are on the rise in America, and some leaders are warning a new surge of anti semitism being expressed by celebrities could make that type of hate normal in America. The comments from rapper Kanye West, including his love for Adolf Hitler. An anti semitic film being promoted by the nets Kyrie Irving, and Donald Trump hosting a Holocaust denying white supremacist at Mar-a-Lago, are raising fears for some that the U.S. is returning to a darker place. We are prominent leaders spread conspiracy theories about Jewish people without impunity. The mayor of Miami Beach, Florida, Dan, says these are not idiots that no one's heard of. He says when influential mainstream cultural political and even sports icons normalize hate speech, everyone needs to be very concerned. The anti defamation league reports nearly 3000 cases of assault, harassment and vandalism against Jewish people last year. A 34% increase over the previous year, and the highest number in four decades. I'm Jackie Quinn

Sebastian Reflects on Manhood and the 2nd Amendment

"Want to talk to you about the Second Amendment and how it was put into effect last night in my home. First, let's have a little reminder of, well, the manhood hour is going to be next with senior CIA operations officer Rick Prado, a legend in the black ops community. And in the spirit of our weekly manhood hour, you do not want to miss it. Let's listen to what the man in a wheelchair said on the floor of Congress an individual I was hanging out with at Mar-a-Lago just two weeks ago when the president made his historic announcement. And it has to do with the Second Amendment, and it's about being a man, cut 5. Our young men are taught that weaknesses strength that delicacy is desirable. And that being a soft metrosexual is more valuable than training the mind, body, and soul. Social media has weakened us. Siphoning our men of their will to fight to rise in a noble man or square their jaws and charge once more into the breach of life to defend what they love. So on this precipice of disaster, I ask the young men of this nation a question. Will you sit behind a screen while the story tales of your forefathers become myth? Or were you stand resolute against the dying light of America's golden age? We reclaim your masculinity. Will you become a man to be feared to be respected to be looked up to? Or you let this nation's next generation be its final generation? Will you let this next generation be our final generation of men? Thank you, Madison Cawthorn.

Jim Carafano on What Sets the U.S. Apart From Russia and China

"You've served this nation in uniform for more than 20 years in the U.S. Army. You fought the Cold War, are you ashamed of what we represent in terms of the administration and business leaders? So this is ironic. Because on the one hand, they talk about global norms and all this other human rights. Right. But on the other hand, when China or Iran or even Russia to these horrific terrible things, they just feel muted and embarrassed. And I think this is the difference between them and us. And by us, I don't mean we are neocons that want to go out and bomb everybody and bend everybody to America as well in the world. It's this notion of this is when we talk about America's global interests and responsibilities. It's not the World Economic Forum and globalism and global governance. It's about what's in the best interests of the American people and often we find out it is standing up for, you know, I say this all the time. What's the difference between us and Russia and Iran and the United States fundamental America and all the countries and people in America and that we have all kinds of different things. But fundamentally, we and the free world, whatever you want to we believe in basic human rights, not being beaten up and thrown in jail, not being allowed to pray. We believe in human rights, we believe that the governments ought to be elected by their people and the government ought to be accountable to their people. And we believe that I don't care some version of the free market system, whatever you want to call it. You work hard, you should get rewarded for that, right? And you should have private property. Exactly. Right. We believe in those things. China, Russia, Iran, they don't believe in any of those things. And not only do they not believe in them, they see their mere existence. As a threat to them. As the ultimate obstacle, the expansion of their power and influence and it must be destroyed. And that is why if you are in Moscow and Beijing in Tehran, you wake up every morning with one that today I hope is the last day America is in the world.

Why Is the Biden Regime So Silent on China? Boris Epshteyn Explains

"China. I think he's been speaking at my notes. Let's listen to president Trump's son, who had this interesting explanation as to why this administration is eating 200 lobsters at the state dinner last night in The White House and seeing nothing about the events in China. Almost shocked that the level of silence. And then I remembered, you know what? China's $1 billion investment into Hunter Biden when he flew over there on air force two and walked away. You know, China invested in a lot of crackheads folks. It's what they do. They definitely don't do other diligence than that. They get every crackhead and they give them a billion dollars into their fund, right? No, no, no. That investment is paying off in spades right now, folks. Yeah, very wise investment on behalf of Beijing when vice President Biden flew to China with his son on air force two. We played multiple times or played it again with our next buddy Jim carafano. The clips from Kirby from The White House saying no, we're not going to comment on the events occurring in China, which are utterly historic as somebody born in a former communist dictatorship whose family got out of there. Did you ever expect to see this from? I don't care political parties. Any political administration in America now? No. This is not America. And let's be honest, if you look at the history of America in the fight against the Soviet Union, Soviet communism, the same that Nixon was a Cold War warrior, Carter became a Cold War warrior. And Reagan was a call. It was bipartisan. JFK, LBJ. It was bipartisan. Right. Bill Clinton was strong, right? The events in the former Yugoslavia, right? Lack of leadership. The lack of presence. The lack of hegemonic from this administration isn't just troubling. It's treasonous. That's what it is. They are selling our country down the river,

Joe Biden was somebody that he picked me as vice president but now I seem to be talking about it that shows you the type of man that he is and so that's why I tell the Jordan people he's lost not once but twice in Georgia and now he's out there promoting Rafael that he had done anything for Georgia. He's shown that he votes for every bad policy we're going through right now and he's still promoting someone that's going to hurt Georgia that's going to hurt the United States of America. So what type of clout do we give him? None. Right now I want the people of Jordan didn't know. I'm here to fight for Georgia, not to fight for anyone else, but if I for Georgia and the fact that the people are the United States, we got to get back into this constitution, get back into this America, is number one, we shouldn't have America as we're bad people. We're good people. Herschel Walker on the patriot mobile newsmaker line, Herschel, I do want to ask you about president Trump and maybe you can clear this up. What's the deal? Is he going to campaign for you? Is he coming to Georgia? And if not, why not? Well, he has been campaigning for me and we've been doing telephone rallies together. We've been doing things together. We're going to do even more. And I've welcomed everybody to come down and want to help me to win this great seat for the great people of Georgia because we got to win this state.

I mean, despite the fact, listen, every man has his flaws every founding father, just like you and I have our flaws, no doubt about it, but I still believe that they have created the best country that God has ever given man. And one of the things that I'd like to do in this show in this hour and perhaps even going into the next hour, I'm gonna talk to you about how the Republican Party to some extent has become. And guys, you gotta understand where I'm coming from. I hate to say this 'cause I don't wanna be hyperbolic. I do not want to be hyperbolic. But I think the Republican Party has become so weak that they too have become an existential threat to America now. The good news is, because people like us exist because Dennis prager listeners exist. We can call our congressmen. We can call our senators. We can get involved in politics and we can fight like heck and hopefully persuade Republicans to do the job that they were elected to do. But I think it's an uphill battle.

Gov. Kristi Noem: TikTok Ban for South Dakota Government

"Made headlines just the other day by signing an executive order banning TikTok on for state government agencies employees and contractors specifically using state devices. Why did you do that? Well, we're learning more and more every single day about the national security threat that TikTok is to our country and to our individual citizens. It's my job as governor to protect the people's South Dakota. We know that China is using TikTok and manipulating algorithms to gather information on the people in this country. They're not only gathering what kind of websites or videos that they watch and learning from us that way they're also potentially getting our keystrokes to what buttons we push on our phones, but getting access to passwords could potentially violate our financial accounts and personal information, even health and information. It's a real threat to our country and we know China's our enemy. You know, they hate us. This is their agenda that they've had for hundreds of years is to destroy the United States of America and they're using this app to gather more information about American citizens and use it against us. So in South Dakota, we have banned the app on our servers on our networks, any state employee or contractor or someone who works with state government who accesses it or downloads the app. We'll face criminal penalties and that's something that we sent a clear message that we have a lot of personal information and state government that we're not going to allow China to hack into by using this app and I'm hopeful that other leaders in other states and in Congress will do the same.

The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen

The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen

"Everybody's talking about the new movie coming out called cocaine bear. Cocaine bear. I talk about this movie when it before I was a movie, but it was optioned and when there were attaching and director and there weren't even actors cast, and I said back then, two years ago, I can't wait to see this movie. Because it's based on a true story of a bear ingesting so much cocaine that he died. But this story is amazing. The story of cocaine bear begins with a body in a driveway. This guy, Andrew Thornton, the second was a paratrooper, a police officer, and a lawyer before he turned into he turned to drug smuggling. And he was moving loads of cocaine into America from Columbia, and he would take his sesta 404 up in the air and make these runs and he was having a ball. But law came to an end in September of 1985 when police discovered his dead body in a driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee, and he had been heavily armed, he had on a bulletproof vest. He was carrying thousands of dollars in cash and also oh, by the way, 77 pounds of cocaine valued at $14 million, which was stuffed into a duffel bag, strapped around his waist. And he might have gotten away with it again, but his parachute didn't open after he jumped from his airplane, and then authorities found the plane about 60 miles away and that began the investigation. Thornton had the directed the aircraft toward the Atlantic Ocean, and he settled on autopilot figuring, I'll jump out now, I have all the Coke on me and the plain old crash in the ocean and they'll figure the guy who was piloting it is dead, eaten by sharks, whatever. But turns out he wasn't the only casualty. In his final drug smuggling moves, let's go to November of 85, two months, a month later. Some hunter finds a dead black bear in chattahoochee national forest, a 175 pound bear. And right near that bear was a duffel bag that had initially carried around 77 pounds of cocaine. This bear came upon it. And he got into the blow, and he overdosed. And as it's already later figured out, by the way, the flight path was, et cetera, that this had to be the plane with the drugs on it, and the guy that died and they put it all together.

"The only thing, I mean, when I was reading the book, I was thinking it's sad that marital and Monroe died. It said, particularly that Dorothy kilgallen died. It's less sad that JFK died because when you look at his life, the depravity is astonishing. It is absolutely astonishing that the level of entitlement, the idea that his father and his family had extreme extraordinary power and that they used it to rig an election, which is an abomination in the United States of America, all crime is wrong, but to steal an election is really, really dirty. And then of course, as a young man, married to a beautiful woman, he is bringing prostitutes into The White House. It's just so dark. And so awful. So it seems a tragic tale, whether he's assassinated or not. It's just so filthy. Well, it all comes around, you know, in life. And I have new information in fighting for justice. JFK's a senator. He's obviously having sex with his secretary. And it's in a building in Georgetown. And he goes over there, and there's a woman who lives next door. And she decides to go ahead and let him know that she's going to tell the media about it. He confronts her on the street on the street the next day with his finger in her nose. You go ahead and you do that, you'll never work in this country again. Okay? That's what kind of a person he was. And then Joe Kennedy just covers all this up. I mean, JFK was married before he married the Jackie. And Joe covered that up. That was his greatest, but of course the least. It's almost funny. That seems like a charming thing, you know,

Eric Metaxas: The Meaning of Christmas

"Okay, do you think America has lost the true meaning of Christmas? What do you think that meaning is? I don't know what could be more confusing than we say when we ask these questions like the true meaning of Christmas. Why does Christmas even have to have a meaning? I mean, here's what Christmas is. It's a celebration of the birth of Jesus who is the second person of the Trinity. So when we talk about the meaning of Christmas, it can kind of become this kind of commercialized like everybody's in the Christmas spirit. And I think to that extent we've lost the true meaning of Christmas in the sense that it becomes attenuated into nothingness, that it gets about gift giving. It's not about gift giving. We give gifts to celebrate the birth of Jesus. So I think we really have to make an extra effort to focus on the actual meaning of Christmas and the penumbra is less important. Okay, all right, so the actual meaning the birth of Jesus Christ savior of the world.

Vivek Ramaswamy: The Work Being Done at Strive Asset Management

"One of the lessons is if you're going to stand for a principle, stand for that principle. You don't have to, you don't have to be everything to everybody. And I think even if you tied to the SPF thing, just die up that discussion for a second. He didn't have to put up the ESG smoke screen. He could have just said he's a crypto exchange and everyone could have just judged him accordingly. My view would strive and with everything I'm working on is that companies should focus exclusively on delivering excellent products and services to their customers for profit without apologizing for it. And without putting on a show. And I think everyone is better off if we can do that. But the problem today is that you have other large financial institutions. Firms like BlackRock, state street, Vanguard, that today are without the permission of their customers using their client's money to advance agendas in corporate America's boardrooms that most of those everyday citizens actually disagree with. And so if you think about some of the parallels here, there are different issues, but there are parallels. Okay, sbf used customer funds to advance personal agendas. In this case, personal financial agendas without disclosing it without getting the permission of the customers. Well, what do you think is happening at other large asset managers like BlackRock on down where they're using their clients funds to vote for social agendas without getting their clients permission without asking their clients that do not advance their best financial interests. There are parallels here that bear mentioned. Charlie, my view is the best answer often to market problems is market solutions rather than just more regulation or government action. In my view, is that if everyday Americans or there's a lot of them, certainly, who don't want to advance political or social agendas with their Capital One sided toxic progressive agendas with their investments. To be able to say that the voting power and the voice you get is a shareholder in America's companies, use it to tell them to focus on products and services to make a profit to get out of politics and not apologize for that.

She runs the patriot freedom project and they are raising money to help the people in the gulag and all of those who have been attacked by the abuse of power by our deep state. And I want to welcome you to the show Cynthia. Thank you for having me, James. Nice to see you. And I greatly appreciate the fact you've got a fundraiser tonight that I'm going to. And I can't wait to see you there. But you're taking time out of that to talk to us. And I wanted to make sure that everybody who listens to America first radio can hear the need and also hopefully reach in their pockets and donate some money to help. My wife Samantha says this all the time. Where is the money to take care of our side like the left has for their team? If anybody, you get a bunch of rioters and looters, you got the vice president and future vice president of the United States begging for money for them. Where's the people doing that on our side? And she's sitting right there on the other side of this conversation. So tell us about what you need to help these people. So, you know, I've had the honor of meeting a ton of the families that are affected by January 6th. I've met mothers. I've met wives. This week I have several of the families here in D.C. that are coming to the fundraiser tonight and I was just with them yesterday with all of their babies and let me tell you Jim. It's very, very it gives you a lot of perspective. Makes you realize that whatever problems you think you have, they're small in comparison. When you hear a three year old daughter on the phone with her daddy, asking him when is he coming home? The community that I've created here for these families and seeing the interaction with these women is so humbling it just brings joy to my heart. It's amazing. You're going to see it for yourself tonight. The way they help each other, the way they comfort each other, who's helping with what child, who's changing a diaper, who's making a bottle, they were cooking dinner together, hugging each other, but listening to the children of these men that are behind bars. It's heartbreaking. It's absolutely heartbreaking. And the country needs to know what is going on besides the talk about what's going on at the D.C. jail. It is so much bigger than the 18 men that are left in the D.C. jail. We have multiple J 6 detainees spread around this country in different gels, and we have a lot of collateral damage. And that is the wife and the children.

Jon Schweppe: Elon's Victory Over Pro-Chinese Apple

"Talking to John schweppe from American principles project, and we're trying to figure out what the landscape is for our online and tech world coming up. And I guess I'm curious, the idea now that both Apple and Google have been involved in censorship to help the Chinese government oppress their people. I think is an area that Elon exploited to get Tim Cook to back down. You know, I think that was one of those weak spots. He's like, I've got a cards. You know, and it's not like Elon's hands are clean. Tesla's dirty with China ties too. Right. All right, so he's got that, but I think I can picture him sitting across from cooking. Do you really want to go down this path, my brother? Do you want me to point out the stuff I know from the Chinese about what you're doing with them? And I think there's a game to be played now, given the Chinese protests and given our need to build a new American economy and talk about bringing stuff back offshore. Can we pressure companies to do things in America that they're now doing with China and leave China as a marketplace not our primary manufacturing facility? Well, we should do that. Be tremendously popular. And if Biden was smart, he'd make that a part of his agenda. So he won't. So he won't. Because obviously they love China, but you know, this is really important. I mean, again, you hinted at it, but what Apple did. There was this AirDrop feature that was really benefiting the protesters over there, and Apple acted on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party to suppress that and prevent people from using. I mean, that's really the stuff. Right. They should be called before Congress and really have to answer for that. And so I think Congress, are you listening? Yeah, yeah. So I think we need to have an anti China, the Republicans need to have a pretty aggressive anti China policy, but we have to recognize our tech companies are in bed with China. And we have to push against them for that as well. And apple is the worst actor actually on

"Back and glad to be joined by John schweppe of the American principles project who I love to talk to when we're talking about anything online and speech related. And John, I gotta tell you, man, I'm having a lot of fun with Elon kicking over all the conference tables, wrecking people's rice bowls, just basically playing the disruptor that he likes to, but I think in a very effective way, what's your take? Yeah, no, we've been talking about this for months. Once he finally took over, was he actually going to follow through on this? And you know there are some worrying things early when he was talking about conversations with the ADL and all these other groups. But he's been wonderful. And you know, I think obviously he has his limits. He's not truly a free speech absolutist. He doesn't want Alex Jones on the platform. You know, there's things like that. But really, he sees that Twitter interfered in the 2020 election. He said as much. And he wants to make sure that that doesn't happen again. And I think it's great. And so conservatives should be pretty happy with this. The hope is that this will actually affect some of the other platforms and really strengthen free speech online without any government involvement, which would be pretty cool. And that's the whole point. We are conservatives we don't want to have to use the government, but we had monopolies, and we had a use of those monopolies to advance a partisan political agenda in a way that was fundamentally damaging our constitutional republic. And now there's a crack in the dam. And I think you're right. The idea he went to Apple. And he had a showdown with Tim Cook. And Timmy back down.

A power lifter, a marathon runner, or maybe you want to look good, feel good or just know everything works. I've been a personal trainer for 40 years. I've trained Hollywood celebrities. Captains of industry stay at home moms and ultra athletes. I've trained post surgical clients, overweight children, and obese adults. I've seen health diet and exercise fads come and go. But three things endure, three behaviors that must be repeated, day after day, to get fit, stay healthy and earn the spot on what I like to call the fitness middle class. What is the fitness middle class? Look at a picture from Woodstock, 1969. I challenge you to find ten overweight people are ten bodybuilders. They extremes just aren't there. Every one looks trim, that is, or was the fitness middle class. All right, so that's a great example of what I'm asking Vinny. So what happened? Yeah, well, several things happened. We moved inside, right? The industrial revolution ended at some point. We weren't outside working. We weren't getting sunlight, which is one of the three things I talked about in the video. We weren't on our seat. We sit around. I mean, I get sick and for kids today. I see them. Even when I go to the gym, I do not have a gym at home. I go out to the public gym. And I look around and in between sets, these kids will sit as long as 5, 6, 7 minutes, slumped over looking at a phone. That's a problem. They're sitting there and you can't say I went to the gym and worked out for an hour when you sat and looked at your phone the same as you would have done at home, where you weren't getting any sunlight. So that's a big issue. We don't move enough. That's a problem. It's not just about when I say exercise is a poor way to lose weight. People say to me, and I think you even asked me one time, why should I exercise at all? And the answer is, it's the fault of youth. Jacqueline told us years ago, you use it or lose it. Your dentist always says, always lost the teeth you want to keep. It's the same when it comes to muscle. Only work the muscles you want to keep. Otherwise, they're going to go away and you're not going to be a healthy individual. And look, we saw this during the pandemic. Right, so let me just make clear to everybody exercise is very, very good for you. But it is not the way to lose weight for most people. Is that a fair summary? For everyone, it's not a right to you lose you gain and lose weight based on your type..

The greatest experiment. In making a decent society began on this day in the year 17 76. And that experiment was called the United States. Of America. Composed of flawed people with society has always had flaws. What is remarkable, therefore? Are not the flaws of America. What is remarkable and has been is the greatness of America. Flaws are normal. America is not normal. One must compare this country in assessing since 1776. Not to a vision of a perfect or nearly perfect society. But to the other societies, that human beings have formed since history began to be recorded and until the present. Then you have a remarkable story, particularly concerning, but hardly restricted to. The elevation of the individual thanks to the individual, having liberty. It is almost impossible to overstate the significance of the American experiment with individual liberty that is not normal either. Both in antiquity and in the modern period, to this day. Individual liberty. Has not been the preeminent value of almost any society on earth outside of the United States. Social cohesion, security, conformity, these have been the norms, tribal, union, these have been the norms, the elevation of the individual. Is an absolute exception, and remains the focus of the battle to this day in the United States. Because at least as many humans want to be taken care of, as wants to have liberty and they are not the same. Being taken care of comes with a small string attached. And that is your liberty. Vis-à-vis those to whom you owe money in personal life. You don't have freedom. You are in their debt. It is a form of slavery, though of course it's not the same thing as slavery. That's what this country was founded to create. A society of free individuals who would only be decent, given their freedom, given the lack of state coercion in their lives, they could only be decent if they were decent. This constitution and this country were made for people who would be personally decent. It can not work without that..

"With and leading their community started well before this year. Back in 2020, Tsai and Chang founded heart of dinner. And served over 20,000 meals to elderly Asians. After identifying how challenging it was for them to access food in the height of the pandemic. So many of our elderly because of the model minority myth, people assume that Asian Americans are constantly successful, always very wealthy, and that is far from the truth not only harmful. It's also very deceiving in a way where then government and other organizations may not be aware that our Asian elderly are the ones in most need and dire need of resources that are often overlooked. They deal with language barriers, cultural barriers, socioeconomic barriers as well, and it's difficult for them first to even ask for help. And when they do, they're often ignored or silenced. Zion Chang started cooking hot meals and stocking up on groceries that were actually familiar to Asian elders. Unlike the canned tuna or beans that were found in most meal delivery services, and brought them to New York's many Asian elderly communities. And the duo said, growing up in an Asian household where living with and caring for your elders as common, influenced how they approached their mission. We do things in a way where we think about our own grandparents. How do we treat our own grandparents and it's so instinctively organic and natural to us because of our upbringing and how we were raised. You know, instead of American broccoli, we would replace it with bok choy, eggplant, bitter melons. These are ingredients that are popular with an Asian immigrant households, and it empowers them to understand they deserve these kind of resources without ever having to wonder about whether or not they belong. Whether or not they deserve it because they do. And we value them and we love them and we want them to feel appreciated and thanked for their sacrifices. To date, heart of dinner has helped raise half a $1 million in revenue for local businesses. Has consistently served over 500 elders each week and has organized more than 3000 volunteers. But it's not just about hot meals and fresh produce. Volunteers from around the world write handwritten notes for meal recipients. In languages like tagalog, Mandarin and Korean. Which might sound like a small gesture, but according to Chang, their impact is huge. The handwritten notes in the native languages of our elderly recipients is equally as important as the meals that we give them. This started at around the time where a lot of our elderly were hearing news of people around their age who look like them that were being targeted and attacked. And being scapegoated for the pandemic. So we wanted to counter the gutting news with something that was uplifting and brought cheer to them and gave them hope now two years into their operation, Tsai told us, it's become less about the food and more about connections and community. They still really appreciate the food but now is focusing on the isolation and they really now love seeing our volunteers every week and also getting that care package is a shift from food now to more of the holistic care. As AAPI heritage month closes out, Chang and Tsai reflected on this year's theme. And how it's always been at the center of heart of dinner's mission. Collaboration has been through and through the core to heart of dinner's existence and survival. We serve our elderly, we take care of them. We love them in a culturally thoughtful way. But how do we do that? We do that by also partnering with local small businesses and we always try and highlight and uplift women owned or AAPI owned small businesses. So it's really about collaboration and we would not be able to continue this way without them and especially with the month of May, where we have been inundated with all of these events. We lean on each other for support to move forward. And of course, as the founders of a company rooted in providing food, both women are most excited to celebrate how food is at the heart of collaboration and community. My own grandmother, moonless grandmother, movement's mom, cooks so beautifully, and we're so proud about just showing this off to the world and sharing what each ingredient means and how we were taught and raised that it benefits our health and how it could be nourishing and healing in those ways. And what it means as a universal love language, right? Our food, it literally always brings people together, and that's the best way we say I love you. For real. Thanks for listening to skim this.

"It's been over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began. But now, there is another warning from health officials about a new possible rare disease outbreak. It is called monkey pox. That's right, monkeypox. Which we've got to say wasn't on our 2022 bingo cards. But here we are. Monkeypox is a virus that's most commonly found in central and western Africa. But now, the disease has been spotted around the world, including in Europe and here in the U.S.. The CDC said today, it's identified 9 confirmed cases of monkeypox in 7 states, including Massachusetts, Florida, New York, Virginia, California, Utah, and Washington. Here to help us break down WTF monkeypox and whether we should be concerned, is doctor Gigi grumble, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security. Doctor grenville let's start with the basics. What is monkeypox and where did it come from? We have been so used to in the last couple of years, only thinking about COVID as a virus, but there are lots of different kinds of viruses out there. And monkeypox is a DNA virus. It's a pretty stable virus that we've had emerging spillover events for a couple of decades. Even though it's called monkeypox, most of the time, it's rodents that have this virus and so that's usually where people bump into it when the contact with kinds of mice and things like that. It's spread in a different way than COVID. So we're used to aerosol spread with COVID. And that's not how monkeypox transmits. It's more about close contact. So that is a difference between monkeypox and COVID. And what are the symptoms of monkeypox? What should people be looking out for? So it's a pustules that people get. And it depends, they may get just a few or a whole bunch. They're usually painful pustules that they get and if somebody has a pretty bad case, they tend to be on your hands or your feet, it's this kind of rash can be everywhere, but it tends to go to the extremities of your body. But in this particular outbreak, a lot of the transmission appears to be so far through intimate contact. So people are getting these kinds of poxes in their groin areas, stuff like that. People should take notice if they have any of these boxes that are kind of like fluid filled and often they're kind of surrounded by red circles. So eventually these kind of scab over and resolve and most people will not need for their treatment, but there are antivirals available and vaccines available for people as this outbreak develops that might be considered high risk. I was going to ask because monkeypox is in the smallpox family, does that mean we already have available treatments and it sounds like the answer is yes. Yes, yes. So thankfully, all of the pox viruses are pretty related and they have proven to be not super difficult viruses to make vaccines against or Therapeutics. So for biodefense reasons, the United States government has invested in smallpox vaccines and there are stockpiled enough for everyone in the U.S.. And there are now some antivirals that would also be useful. But for most people, this is a limited infection and the idea is to try and limit spread. Can monkeypox be fatal? It has been fatal. There are a couple different clades of monkeypox and the one that is spreading is the less dangerous one. So if people seek medical care, they are likely to do upload. And it might be a painful couple of weeks, but mortality is not a huge concern. So President Biden said that the spread of monkeypox was concerning, I'm curious, does that mirror want public health experts think? Are they also concerned? It's concerning that we have a new route of transmission, perhaps of a virus. And it's concerning to have so many cases that have been identified and it's probably just the tip of the iceberg. We're going to need to have public health people epidemiologists actually track down these cases and make sure that everybody is isolating and if they need treatment to get that treatment. So I think it's not something I would advise being super concerned about, except that this work is important and needs to get done and we're at a crisis point again in public health where a lot of people are thinking that perhaps we don't need to put as much in the way of resources into public health, but this is what will keep happening. We will keep bumping into new viruses and old viruses in new ways. Last question for you is, as we start seeing more headlines about monkeypox emerge, what would you tell our audience to keep in mind around how to have perspective as they watch this new virus spread? What people should take a note of changes and if they have any of these types of boxes or any symptoms really, people should, if they have access, seek medical care. And people should also realize that public health, this is the bread and butter of what we do, you know, we try and monitor new emerging diseases and try and protect people's health. You want to get the weather small so that you can really take care of them and put them out. If you allow the fire to get big, it takes a lot more resources to be able to address it. Doctor grumbled, thank you so much. Welcome. This year's Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month theme is advancing leaders through collaboration. But for yinchang and Tsai, the founders of a nonprofit that provides meals for elderly Asian people in New York City, collaborating.

"In suing the state. We've been behind all of them as part of that. There are things that we're still trying to do to stay in the fight. And that feels necessary that feels important. And just really trying to show patients that we're going to do as much as we possibly can..

"Got to do this. We have no other option. We can't do this in Texas. I had another patient. She had missed our call unfortunately the evening before. So she was on the way. That morning, but she was running late, so she called to tell us she was running late and I had happened to answer the phone and had to tell her I'm so sorry. You missed our phone call that evening before. And there was kind of a long silence before she responded. And then she let me know that she was seeking this abortion because she had been raped. And unfortunately, 1503 made absolutely no exceptions for rate survivors. I had to explain to her that given her circumstances, I still could not help her. And it was pretty awful. A day in the life of an abortion care provider doesn't fit neatly into one job description. It's not just taking care of the patients, physical medical need and providing the abortion. It's counseling then it's holding their hand. It's the shoulder to cry on if that's what needs to happen. It's crying with them sometimes. It's being very knowledgeable about the current loss. So then we can educate patients about the laws. It's all of that. The other part I would add that I think not everyone realizes what patients face what providers face every single day at every single clinic conservative state or not is the protesters that we have to walk by or walk through or listen to when we come to work every day. So you also have to add this tough tough skin because the best thing to do is ignore them and there are days when that's really challenging when people are screaming at you because of what you've chosen to do and lately it's a job that's been made even more challenging. Oklahoma is one of a number of states, including Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, and Florida that have moved to severely restrict abortion access. Ahead of the Supreme Court likely overturning roe V wade this summer. And while roe is technically still the law of the land, and these types of bans violate the constitutional right to an abortion that roe provides, that hasn't stopped these laws from taking effect anyways. At least until their challenged in court, these states that have already restricted access are serving as a blueprint for what opposed row America could look like. Where laws can change at any moment. Providers have to scramble to keep up and people seeking abortions either have to travel out of state or are forced to carry their pregnancy. And in these confusing and challenging moments ahead of the expected scotus decision, providers have been on the front lines navigating this uncertainty. For gallegos and her team, they had a major decision to make a few weeks ago before the fetal heartbeat bill 1503 passed in Oklahoma. These laws are very defeating. You feel defeated each time a new restriction happens before 1503 passed at the beginning of this month. We decided it was a hard decision, but we decided that we were going to see patients to the very end. So that meant scheduling, keeping a schedule, even though at any given moment, we may have to call the patients on our schedule and say so sorry, we now can no longer see you and knowing that was going to be incredibly difficult. There were other clinics in the state that decided to stop seeing patients to prevent that, which I understand that choice too. And so at the end of every day, because it was so unknown of when this would pass. I mean, we really each day each week that we were able to see patients just being really grateful that we had made that decision and we were able to help that many more women that day. I think made it easier to continue each day forward. This week, the governor of Oklahoma just signed a new, even more strict abortion ban, which effectively outlaws abortion at the moment of fertilization. So gallegos and her team have been preparing their patients for another challenge. We're providing as many resources as we can. There are some fabulous organizations that are fully covering the cost of the actual abortion of travel costs for patients who are needing to go out of state. No patient leaves either clinic without all of the information that we can possibly provide. Names of other clinics, names of organizations, phone numbers, we want to make it as simple as possible and just lots of reassurance that we understand when they're angry and that we're with them and every way that we can be. Besides arming their patients with information about pending new laws and how to access and pay for an out of state abortion, the Tulsa women's clinic has also joined the legal fight for abortion access. A fight providers and healthcare workers aren't giving up, as the end of roe seems all but certain. Abortion is, is healthcare. We have to be advocates in what we do as well. And so I think you kind of feel at least I personally have felt kind of this empowering need to fight back. We've worked alongside with the center for reproductive rights.

"In the midst of all this tragedy, the fate of gun control in this country is once again in the hands of politicians. The gunman in uvalde had purchased two firearms, including the weapon that was used on Tuesday within the past week. He had just turned 18. And Texas, which is the state he purchased those firearms in, has long been a state with loose gun laws. Just last year, Texas passed at least 7 bills that eased gun restrictions. Allowing residents to carry firearms without a license or training. Texas governor Greg Abbott, who's up for reelection this year, doubled down on his support of the Second Amendment during a press conference following the shooting. The ability of an 18 year old to buy a long gun has been in place instead of Texas for more than 60 years. Nationwide, homicides have reached their highest levels in more than 25 years. And gun ownership has skyrocketed. In 2020, firearms eclipsed car accidents as the leading cause of death for children in the United States. But as we've gotten more and more harrowing statistics, the divide over gun ownership in America remains the same. In fact, the past two decades have been full of major failures for gun control. In 2004, Congress let the ban on semi-automatic assault weapons expire. Ten years after that ban had gone into effect. In 2013, after the sandy hook shooting, a bipartisan group of senators, including Joe Manchin of West Virginia and pat toomey of Pennsylvania, tried to expand the background check system for gun ownership. But that legislation wasn't able to get 60 votes and it failed. In 2019 and again in 2021, the House passed two bills that would expand background checks and close loopholes for certain types of firearm sales. But those haven't been able to get through a split Senate. Now, President Biden, who was vice president during the sandy hook shooting, has urged lawmakers to act. Here he was addressing the nation on Tuesday night. Good evening. I'd hoped. When I became president, I would not have to do this. Again. We have to ask, when in God's name, are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? So far, in the wake of the shooting, Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer announced, there are no immediate plans to vote on a bill calling for greater background checks, which nearly 90% of Americans support. Instead, he's opting for negotiating with Republicans on a bipartisan deal to address the issue. Meanwhile, Republicans, many of whom receive donations from the National Rifle Association, have called for more security in schools and arming teachers. Though we should point out, you've already reportedly had a security plan in place that included its own police force and social media monitoring software. But that didn't seem to be able to prevent this tragedy. As the nation considers what it will take to stop another classroom massacre, this weekend, Texas is set to host the NRA's annual meeting. With high profile guests like former president Donald Trump and Texas senator Ted Cruz. While exhausted and frightened parents wonder what to tell their children,.

"Alex Carr, let's skim this. We're coming on the air because of an awful scene playing out today in Texas and active shooter for a time at an elementary school and Yuval di Texas. This is about 80 miles outside of San Antonio. On Tuesday, two days before school was supposed to break for the summer. 19 children and two adults at rob elementary school in Yuval, Texas lost their lives in the deadliest school shooting since sandy hook. At least a dozen others are injured and one woman remains in critical condition. The 18 year old gunman, who was a student at the local high school, launched the attack shortly before noon local time, and was later killed by responding officers. Authorities said they believe the gunman acted alone. And that he shared his plans in direct messages on social media before the massacre. They also confirmed that he shot his grandmother at home before he drove to the elementary school. Witnesses say that law enforcement officers broke windows so that students and educators could escape gunfire. And parents waiting for news about their children had to provide DNA samples to help identify who passed away. Among the dead are two dedicated educators who love teaching. And students who loved joking around dancing, sports, and talking to their friends. Family members and friends mourned in posts on social media, sharing glimpses into the young lives of the victims. Parents describe children who were full of life and loved being the center of attention. Posting photos of smiling faces and family time. Americans are starting the cycle of grief yet again. In the past two weeks, there have been mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Orange County, California. And the U.S. has seen over 200 mass shootings this year alone. Each massacre we've grieved has touched all parts of American life, and all sorts of communities. People have been gunned down at school. Places of worship. The grocery store. Nightclubs, music festivals, this time, after more children have been murdered, people have expressed their outrage, anguish, and disappointment that a broken system in this country hasn't been fixed. After sandy hook, ten years ago, after the Parkland school shooting four years ago, or after this week and Yuval di. Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, who represented the district that sandy hook was in when he was in the house, begged his colleagues to not be numb to this during a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday. Days after a shooter walked into a grocery store to gun down African American patrons. We have another sandy hook on our hands. What are we doing?.

Yes, and Hanover has been especially hard hit by the so called demographic drought. And so how many open positions are there in Hanover right now? Right now we have, I'm counting them 7 vacant police officer positions, half the department for vacant firefighter positions, two vacancies in our public works department, one pending vacancy in our library. We've probably have more than two dozen vacancies out of a total of a 158 full-time employees. We can't find the body. It's not that we have a small applicant pool. We have no applicants. No applicants. Government jobs have a lot in common with some of the other jobs that people just aren't taking or even applying for it in the economy right now. These jobs often don't pay that well, at least not compared to the private sector. They often also do not allow remote work. And they sometimes require long hours. Julia Griffin says there aren't a whole lot of young people coming out of college and deciding to work for municipal governments. What that means is that this small community is feeling it. Bottom line, they have to make do with less. It could mean that instead of going out to plow when we have an inch or more of snow, we can't go out to plow until we have three inches of snow. But here's the thing. Hanover the city can't just raise wages like a private sector employer could do. There are complicated rules that determine what a government worker makes. So as a kind of solution to tide things over, Hanover is now asking current employees to just add responsibilities onto their current jobs. Like having parks department staffers working at an after school program because they just can't find anyone else. That's part of what has made Julia Griffin so weary over these past two years. She's running a town with fewer employees in those that remain are overworked. We're here to try and provide these services and so when we have to reduce the quality of service we provide because we don't have the person power to do the work and our residents are angry with us as a result. That's hard criticism to take. Hence another component of that sense of burnout that people are feeling in the public sector. These are demographic changes that have been happening for a long time. The U.S. saw a big boom in its population between 1946 and 1964. The baby boomers. There are about 76 million of them. But since then, the fertility rate in the U.S. has been falling. And beginning in the 1970s, birth rates fell below the replacement rate across the developed world. So the replacement rate is basically the number of children, each woman has to have to replace the existing population. That number is 2.1. So I have a one child, Stacy, so I guess I'm gonna need, I don't know, one and then another arm to stave off population decline. You're not pulling your weight, Alana. So anyway, democracy has been talking about the silver tsunami or grey wave. Basically what would happen when populations in developed nations like the U.S. aged. But it didn't really happen. But during the pandemic, that changed. So you're talking about people who are above the age of 65 who are like, I still enjoy working and then after COVID, they're like, I'm not enjoying working anymore. So they all kind of took off the same time. Ron hetrick is a labor economist at MC burning glass. He's been looking at how retirements will affect the economy for a series of papers called the demographic drought. Right now we have about 4.2 million excess people who are saying they're out of the labor force versus where we were back in February of 2020. More than half of those people who are out of the labor force now versus before are over the age of 55. And that has real consequences for the U.S. economy and our gross domestic product. It's basically seen as the measure of economic growth. And unless everyone gets a whole lot more productive with fewer people, we are going to be making less stuff fewer goods and services. I mean, just think about what happens when one person on a team leaves and they are not replaced. Now, blow that up to a national scale. A year ago, I looked at our GDP per worker in the U.S. and then I said, what if we were able to fill all of our job openings and it was like a point or two to GDP that we would have added, had we done that? Okay, but a lot of these are resourceful countries, like there's got to be something that they can do or at least have tried to reverse this decline? Well, Julia Griffin started looking into autonomous snowplows. I guess that does solve one part of the problem, right? I mean, you know, get the damn snow cleared. It turns out they don't exist yet. But automation and technology are definitely going to be a part of what replaces missing workers. People are like, well, what if we have more babies? I'm like, okay, great, but that is not going to help us right now. Unless you know how to put a baby to work immediately. Oh, they're so hard to manage to. I do not want to work with a baby. So another possible solution would be to increase the immigration rate. So net international migration in 2021 was just 247,000. That is about one quarter of what it was in 2016, so that is one place that a workforce could come from potentially. But without big changes like that, Ron says the demographic drought is going to affect how we live. You might be, I don't know, mowing your yard and making more food at home, or taking care of your aging parents, because that is what it looks like. You know, when you can't get people to fill those jobs, then you have to do that work. Right. And that could really affect how we live. But Stacey Ron says there is something that people like you and I can do to help. Be nicer to overloaded workers, especially people in the public sector. Stop yelling at people because it's not their fault. Being nicer might actually help lure people like Julia Griffin out of retirement. If we become a more civil society again, it may help to bring people back to the public sector. Yes, being nice seems like a very simple fix to a huge economic problem, but also, you know, in the case of Julia, I like her retirement plan sounded very dreamy. I do want her to at least feel like she has the option to retire if she wants to. You know, like a lot of older workers, she doesn't want to just quit entirely. She just wants a little bit more flexibility. I'd love to be doing something part time. So they have the ability to say, I'll see you in a month. I'm heading to Copenhagen and Stockholm for two weeks, and I'll be back. Let's go to Copenhagen with Julia Alana. First round of is on me. I'll meet you there.

"Battle. On saying any komo news this is kennedy or to us. Have full name keldysh. Gonzales obey the zuniga. she's from honduras. A mother with four children has story is here being voiced by actor. Keldysh life in honduras was dangerous. Your guess is don't throw themis Since they martyred four of my brothers and two brothers law to a sister in law due to the persecution of my life and the life of my family and she had testified in court against the hitman who had killed one of her brothers. Six family members total had been killed and her whole family was in danger and so she did the only thing that she felt that she could. She fled in july of twenty seventeen. She left honduras a destination. Donald trump's america. But what kelly didn't know was what trump had delighted in telling audiences for months even years. It was america first off. The rule illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came. In january of twenty seventeen trump had assumed office. He almost immediately signed an executive order. Using the guise of national security to ban entry people from muslim-majority countries establishing new vetting measures to keep radical islamic terrorists out of the united states of america. We don't want them here. Sit by july when she started her journey to the us. This was the political landscape. That kennedy was entering is moves with states and we decided then to immigrate leaving fleeing to different parts we could not achieve their goal. They couldn't help us until after we came here to the usa. And that's where. I get trapped as lead lawyer for the american civil liberties union. Aclu an organization that among other aims defends the rights of migrants like candy legal and had been monitoring the trump administration's policies on children weighty closely. But at this point in the summer of twenty seventeen he felt reassured that nothing had substantially changed yet in two thousand seventeen. There was some media discussion about whether the trump administration tended to separate families but what the administration said is no. We are not doing that right now. We have no planned to do it. We have discussed it. And i think we like the rest of the country largely forgotten about it for a little while. A you lady. Well they were going to help me and we were going to stop suffering from so much damage from all the abuse that they threatened does within non dudas and it was not this way. I always say this phrase it was like going to a doctor to see they will give something to heal or to relieve the pain and instead it was more painful. In september two months after leaving honduras kelly arrived in america. She had travelled by bus across guatemala and through mexico. She had documents news clippings police reports and she had a plan on a hot day in arid landscape of new mexico. She crossed the border on foot with two of her sons who then aged fifteen and thirteen and she flags down a border control car. She has a papers with her and she feels prepared to man. I signal them with my hands for them to help us. And when they came and asked me what i was doing there and i told them i m asking for asylum. It was the first thing that came out of my mouth. I am asking for asylum. And i bring evidence. Will they detained us. They took us into like a car while kind of close tin they later. Take us to an office where they ask us. If i have relatives here in the united states i said yes. They asked me for an address and everything and they tell me. We're going to call your relatives to buy a plane ticket for you and your children because we are going to let you go tell they had been told originally that they would all be released but then she was told that they don't need be kept apart temporarily. The situation kept changing things. What happening the way that she had been expecting. She thought that the border patrol agents would help her. She wanted to seek asylum and she had played documents to support case but what she didn't know. In fact very few people knew then is that the trump administration had quietly shifted. Its approach to the border. It was now trialing and you program filing criminal charges against anyone who crossed the border without permission which is a misdemeanor offense for the first time with no exceptions to be made to families with children would people seeking asylum before the trump administration and before this new policy families in this situation had generally stayed together either paroled or captain a detention center but together all of trump's fighting talk all of his denigrating rhetoric had calcified into a new policy that had not yet been announced to the world. But it was there in new mexico shaping what was to become the most painful period of kelly's life one dole yasser do those things when the twenty second is over. They call me. Ma'am come on please. And then my children were also behind me as always they tell me. I want to tell you that you are going alone to jail. Do pay a five day sentence and your children will go to another place. I shelter word. They will wait for you there to be reunited and this is only five days that you are going to go and then we're going to transfer you to another place and they always told me that my children were going to be there that they were going to be there. After five days. Kelly was moved to a detention center in texas a open. It will don't ask officer where i might children and the female officer told me who told you that your children were going to be here. Your children are not here and in texas. Kelly was beginning to realize that she had fed one nightmare for another has sons when not there as she had expected they would not go to be reunited. The trump administration's new approach sent parents to federal facilities. Where legally children couldn't go instead. They were handed over to the department.

"And i stood up in court and said we will find them. We will get private money to fine them. We will get ngo partners private law firms and private investigators and we will find them. The land hadn't checked with his colleagues before he said this in court. He hadn't been briefed to say it. He hadn't even really been prepared to say it. But in the heat of the moment in court in front of a judge it just came out truthfully. I'm not sure anybody at that moment. Including myself understood. Just how big undertaking. Lee is a lawyer. He works for the aclu the american civil liberties union. He's worked for nearly thirty years. He's now deputy director of the immigration program and when he made this promise he was in a court in san diego. It's twenty eighteen. And the case is ms l. versus us immigration and customs enforcement ice chief district judge dana subroto presiding lee and the aco. You were litigating. On behalf of a woman. Mozelle an asylum-seeker from congo muscles daughter then aged six had been forcibly removed from her taken from her arms after they arrived in the us and she was being kept in a facility more than a thousand miles. Away lee aclu. You were in court fighting to reunite this one mother with her child but they will also using this one case as pov something bigger to stop the trump administration's practice of separating children and parents at the border because by this point in two thousand eighteen. The aclu knew that this was happening on a larger scale though. The trump government wasn't admitting it as news of more and more cases began to reach them. The aclu started to add other separated families to this lawsuit building. A class action. At first they were talking about four hundred children who had been separated but then that number grew and grew. I don't think at that moment. If you said to me for years later five years later will you still be looking for families. Will you have had to go to central america to look for families i would have had any conception of that and also had no idea who would be willing to help us so in our mind we were going to be looking for roughly four hundred plus families. It turned out that we've been looking for thousands soon off to knee had promised to find an reunite. Those families in court. The number grew again to seven hundred seven hundred children taken from their parents at the us border and put into a holding facilities and then it grew again off to the trump administration revealed that the number was actually in the thousands. Two thousand eight hundred. They admitted in court since then the total number of children actually separated by the trump administration has grown to over five thousand five hundred children of all ages including still breastfeeding infants. The youngest just four months old and so lee and the aclu with a coalition of partners embarked on a giant piece of detective. Work to find. The parents of children separated and detained the young victims of america's so-called zero tolerance policy. I'm becky comings. And you're listening to the slow newscast. And in this episode we return to one of the great human rights scandals of autumn a dreadful harrowing policy. That could be. It turns out impossible to fix reported with my colleagues claudia williams and patricia. Clark this is the story of how three hundred children Still orphaned by america.

"This event is presented by the council on foreign relations. Saying thank you for this and thanks to all of you who are joining us for the really interesting and very timely conversation. I welcome to today's counseling. Bar relations renewing america series meeting. The topic is fixing america's infrastructure. My name is ali val she. I'm the host of vel she on msnbc. And i'm a business correspondent for nbc. And i'll be presiding over today's discussion. This meeting is part of. Cfr's renewing america's series with china spotlight on the domestic underpinnings of us competitiveness. To find ways to bolster us international strength and influence. We've got a number of members registered for this virtual meeting. We're gonna do our best to get to as many questions as possible during the question and answer period. I invite you please to participate in that because our panelists today really know a lot about this topic at hand I want to introduce heidi credo. Rediker she is an adjunct senior fellow at the council on foreign relations and the chief executive officer of international capital strategies. Heidi it's good to talk to you about this again tyler. Duval is the ceo and co founder of cav knew. He was a former us under undersecretary for policy and assistant secretary for transportation policy at the us department of transportation. Tyler it's great to have you with us and diane gutierrez cesca chetty is the commissioner of the new jersey department of transportation but was also someone. I had a chance to talk to last time. We had this conversation about infrastructure. Always an important discussion up. But it's it's so timely. Because this week we have something happening that we don't always see we're got to send it by the way working on the weekends and they are working on a bipartisan bill. Something we don't hear about all that much because infrastructure depending on how you look at it. And how broadly you look at it but even if you look at it fairly narrow narrowly in terms of physical infrastructure bridges roads buildings Tunnels ports broadband. Now that we think about it These things are are are shared priority for americans and heidi I want to start with you. Because i just saw a brand new polling today. That indicated two to one support for spending on infrastructure. Right now now we can get into and we should get into the differences in definition about infrastructure right now. Republicans and democrats are thinking about it as different things. The term itself has evolved in in america. The idea is we are going to spend public money on. This and americans are to one in favor of spending public money for what they think of our as our infra infrastructure improvements. What what are your thoughts on this. So i don't think it's i don't think it's news that there are so many americans that are supportive of investment in infrastructure particularly smart investments. And some often it would in the past take a bridge collapsing. Or you know in most recent chilling a case. It's really you know the power grid and transmission lines and sort of the challenges that were facing from fires from From heat and from storms in texas there are a lot of parts of of of the infrastructure continuum that that really touch everybody's lives particularly during covert. I think a lot of A lot of people thought long and hard about broadband access in ways that they hadn't before and so the definition expanding the definition of even what is considered heart or core infrastructure. I think happened But now we're also seeing Beyond the bipartisan infrastructure package. That's that's really. It's moving live as we speak the the extension of that definition to include the care economy Healthcare and i think you know y the the the the climate change Part of the of of the infrastructure challenge Looking at that that later. More partisan bill that is likely to come more towards on more towards the fall diane. Let's talk about that because you are you work as tyler did for transportation that is what we generally thought of infrastructure as being forbes transporting water as well and an electric transportation. It's roads and bridges and things like that. You've actually been really busy over the last year. And a half and i talked to probably a year ago about this. Obviously that transportation as a touch point in people's lives not just bridges not collapsing but Traffic and being able to get places in an efficient manner. That as heidi says shouldn't surprise us that people want better versions of that. But there's always pushing pool and there's always partisan japan there's always trouble in getting even basic hard infrastructure. Done so right. Now we're at this moment where At a federal level looks very promising. You're always busy at the state level. On this across america there's always infrastructure at the state level. Now that is absolutely true but we watch the spill carefully because it will give us an added opportunity to start to to continue with projects that we might not have been able to fund timely fashion. So i think the good thing about the bill. We're looking at now. Is we define the projects that would be considered eligible for this additional funds as shovel worthy. And i think that's a very important distinction that from shovel ready A lot of us don't keep large projects on the shelves they age. They cost additional money. So for us this this bill. The focus on infrastructure is critical to continuing to reduce the number of age bridges that we have. But i think what you said earlier alley really struck a note with me when you said it said domestic underpinnings of us. Competitiveness in infrastructure is absolutely that. But it's also not just us competitiveness. it's individual competitiveness. It's our own abilities to access good-paying jobs to look at how we pivoted in this time from not just being able to work by driving or using public transit public transit obeying being able to hybrid and work maybe from home a few days and in office a few days we're really at just a pivotal time in how we will do business in this country i think largely on the private and government side and transportation will always play a role weather its surface transportation roads.
