Saharan Dust Cloud Arrives At The U.S. Gulf Coast, Bringing Haze
"It's a journey. That's a weeks and spend thousands of miles across an ocean floating on currents of air today, a massive cloud of dust from the Sahara desert arrives in the southeastern United States to walk us through this meteorological phenomenon. We are joined by Professor Marshall Shepherd. The Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of Georgia welcome. Thank you for having me okay now. I've seen the satellite images, but. But tell us what it's GonNa. Look like from the ground as this wave of dust from the Sahara arrives in the United States. You know we give these things every year and some are bigger than others. These are this year quite large and so I think that's why it's garnering much attention. Typically you lose the blue sky for more hazy Milky Sky. You tend to see more vivid sunsets and sunrises because. Because of the scattering properties of the dust and interacting with the sunlight, so those are sort of the optical effects, but I think people that suffer from allergy to dust or particular matter, they actually might not find it so amusing. They may have some health issues Why is it so much bigger this year than normal? I think one thing that happened this year are e.. Is that that dust in the? The Hell region in parts of Africa sat there, and just collected because the the wind system this African easterly jet meteorologist talk about it took a bit longer to kind of get itself going, and once it gets going, you can belch and Burp that dust out into the Atlantic, and that's what we're seeing now. Because there was somewhat of a delay, there was a lot more desk sitting there the build up. All right so pros you said good sunrises and sunsets, cons, people who have health problems might find that the respiratory problems are worse. What else is this dust system? GonNa do I mean on the whole is a good thing or a bad thing you know one of the things is an earth scientist. The Earth is so connected, and this is just another example so these dust storms they actually can fertilize the oceans in parts of Amazonia. They're carrying things that really help those ecosystems. Ecosystems but on the flip side of that there's been studies recently say they can actually carry pathogens as well so when you think about Mosquitos as a vector born disease carrier some argued that these dust storms can be vectors, they can carry pathogens another perhaps positive however is that the dust? If there were to be a hurricane forming out over the Atlantic hurricanes don't like the dust. If the dust gets into those forming systems, they can weaken those storms quite a bit. How much? Much bigger. Is this one than what we would see in a typical year? You know it's interesting. I saw a colleague tweet scale. They were using some data from NASA NASA Sir several satellites up monitoring air, quality and air constituents, and literally this event was off the chart. It wasn't even the same type of event. It was just so far off the plot scale, and so four people who study atmospheric science like you is a moment totally nerd out and like remember where you. You were when the Great Sahara Dust of two thousand twenty came across the Atlantic I th I think it is I I've seen some sort of very hyperbolic terms like the Godzillas dust storm. Those types of things I don't i. don't tend to like us such hyperbole when I talk about these things, but it is an anomaly event. My good friend and colleague Tom Gill at the University of Texas El. Paso is an expert on dust storms I know he's geeking out on this. I hosted a podcast call, weather, geeks or the weather channel, and we use the term geeking out. I'm certain it. Scientists like Tom. Gillard geeking out over this dust storm. Marshall Shepherd is the Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of and former president of the American meteorological. Society thanks for talking with us about this monster dust storm. Thank you for having me.
Tightening your belt? How to decide which streaming TV service to cancel.
"With me, senior editor Shelby Brown who was a nice run down to the various streaming services out there, and why should drop each one of them? Thanks for joining me shelby. Thanks for having me again so before we get into the different services We can get the details in a bit Do you have any general suggestions for how you would approach things when you know balancing your budget with all these various streaming services because? For a lot of people, there are different shows that we like. Those shows are found on different services. So there's no. There's no one size fits all options. So, what would you suggest a folks? Generally looking at this landscape. I. Definitely examined why you want that service Aaron. What's appealing to you about that service Lake I had to stop myself from immediately subscribing to HBO. Max Number One just because of the giant explosion of publicity around it when it first came out and kind of the the foam. Oh the fear of missing out I think that can be a big drought services. Especially the new wines I can imagine. That's GONNA. Be when peacock comes out. They'll be a huge drama that 'cause It's new and attractive, but with HBO Max I wanted to subscribe to it. Because, I immediately fell in love with their classic films collection, but I have to ask myself if that's all that I am going to watch, there is always stat worth my money so i. think that that's a question that you should ask yourself before you subscribe to something Dutch. I think that's a that's a good concept to keep in. Mind is considering there are only so many hours in the day and so much time we have to watch stuff so even if in principle it's something you WanNa. have access to your right. It may not be something you'd necessarily need. so let's let's. Let's run through the different service. Let's start with the granddaddy of the mall in the one that is basically ubiquitous, and that's net flicks. It almost is it conceivable to drop athletes. Are there reasons why you'd WanNa? Drop this service on. I think that Netflix's kind've where we started with that. You know binging idea, and whether actively watching it or it's just on for background noise of course there are Netflix's originals which typically Garner a lot of buzz on social media like tiger king came out recently so mostly I think if you're not interested in staying on top of new shows, Netflix's might not be for you or watching the old classics like the Office or Parks and recreation or win. Friends was on there before Hbo Max. And, some of those shows have disappeared from Netflix so that you Kinda lose access to some of that old library. Right All right well, what about Disney plus? As simple as it sounds. I think you should access me, plus you're not into Disney or marvel. Disney plus is a mistrial Jake ride with the vaulted films and the Disney channel original movies from the late nineties early two thousands, and the Buzzword, the original shows Lake Amanda Laurean and the Star Wars films again the marvel films, but again if you're not a fan of the Disney or the marble films, you might not want to invest Disney plus. That's the thing. There could be something he said about subscribing to the services. Timed with shows. You love right like what we know. The mental Lawrence coming back with. Subscribe to it for Laurie Withdraw Fortunately for one of the for these services, there are like cancellation fees. It's not as sticky as it used to be with cable service. You can hop on hop off and that's that that's a good benefit. You can sort of time out if you really want to be strategic about it. These different services right and we've seen those trends win. Game of thrones was on with with HBO. We would see the spike in the viewership. Go up right before the season started, and then we would see plummet after this season would go off so. That and as transition HBO match what? Why would you WANNA keep. Why would you WANNA trump? Hbo Max Hbo Max Really came out swinging at lines with a huge catalog. Of TV shows movies. Its price is on the higher side though compared to other services. It's fifteen dollars a month. so I win necessarily invest in Matt if you're looking for more budget, friendly option an. An Hbo Max Might Not Be the one that you want to subscribe to. Because you can't stream HDR, yet or on Roku or Amazon devices, but it's still new, so that could change in a couple of months or next year. The Amazon Prime Video Amazon. Prime video is kind of a two for one because you get the discount with ecommerce site as well. The platform more centered around movies that you can rent by watch for free but the service definitely puts a focus on its original shows like flea, bad marvelous Mazel and modern love, so if you're more fan of mainstream TV shows, you might WanNa drop trends at you. This is like the one that is kind of default to your point. Right like I am a prime member because I did the shipping services and the videos Kevin Extra. About who is probably one of the more pure play, TB streaming services out there I. who if you don't care about keeping up with? The current mainstream shows one of my favorite parts about the service is. how quickly uploads new episodes after the air on cable, but you can also get the live TV plan for fifty five dollars a month that acts like a capable replacement to watch shows in real time. A downside to that for example, if you wanted to catch up on all the seasons of Grey's anatomy, only season sixteen available on Hulu whereas all the seasons are available on Netflix, so that's kind of a catch, and then lastly apple. TV Plus Apple TV plus has a lot of original shows that were a significant drought of the service like the morning show and. You can like all your streaming services to your apple TV apple TV plus doesn't have a library of license chosen movies. It all so doesn't always release full seasons of shows at one. So, J, if none of the new shows clear interest after the fruit trial. Don't keep it. I subscribed to TV plus for the free trial and watched the servant. I thought it was really good. I'm probably will pick it back up when a second season comes out, so that's always option.
Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.

Look It Up and Learn by Michaela Newey
"Look it up pin, learn by Michaela new. We with the good life. MANIFESTO DOT COM. My husband left me after seventeen years of being together. He did all the mainly stuff. You know that sort of thing changing the lightbulbs jumpstarting the car fixing things around the house organizing plumber, talking to the car mechanic, and so on before that my late father filled this role for me. The strange thing is that I had a very technical job in a totally male dominated field, which included things like wiring, soldiering using power tools, assembling huge sound and lighting systems, and so on. Certainly very capable of my job. The only thing I ever really needed help on was the heavy lifting or being too short to reach something from the ladder.

Aside from a multitude of other things, I experienced something I had never felt before. Helplessness is an awful thing, and although I hated myself for it I found still relied on him. The first time I had a house emergency was failure of the front gate motor when it stopped working I sat on the floor in cried because I did not know what to do. Do. He would know what to do, but he was no longer there and do not want to call him then I pulled myself together and Message Group of friends within a couple of minutes. My other names and numbers of professionals I also ask some people in my street for help. And what are you know? Help arrived in the form of a kind neighbor. One morning my car would not start again. I sank into despair and cried. I needed to get somewhere. He always sort of these things out. And at that moment a dear friend messaged me and said she would come and help me in the afternoon at a commitment for the whole morning, so I called an Uber and got to where I needed to be and got a ride home. She came to help me. The next day I went in myself. Jumper cables and a trickle charger then. I got a new battery. Jumpstarting. Your car is not rocket science. I started doing more things for myself is a hard thing to transition to taking your power into your own hands, but my friend who had been divorced for several years, said to me something simple yet it was profound. She said Google it or look it up on Youtube. You can find out how to do practically everything I've pretty much rebuilt my house myself tanks to Youtube so I did after helplessness into essentially learning I've learned how to do a lot of things and I will keep on learning each time life. Throw something Emmy. I've learned how to fix all sorts of things I can take a lot of my land rover apart and fix things myself. I removed and replaced silicone in the kitchen and the shower I treated rising damp, I asked to garner road to please show me how to replace the line in my edge trimmer. Not Do it for me I replaced a life fitting. I looked up Eric Hosmer, my dishwasher and washing machine and fix the problems. I even mow. The lawn turns out is a great workout as well so bonus. And if I'm not able to do it myself, I can hire someone to do it for me. The details of such a person are available on the Internet. I joined the Automobile Association. And when my car broke down, I made one call and people arrived to sort it out for me. You can do things for yourself. Don't have a panic attack like I used to make a cup of tea to calm down and analyze the problem without emotion.

In Wake of George Floyd's Death, James Blake Reflects on His Own Experience with Police Brutality
"One of the most popular stars in the pro tennis tour for fourteen years says he has had nightmares sensing the police killing of George Floyd about two weeks ago in Minneapolis nearly five years ago James Blake was standing outside his upscale New York City hotel waiting for an afternoon ride to the U. S. open just standing there waiting for the car and definitely not thinking about this thinking about the day what's going on and see someone running from the street towards me and my first reaction was naive as it may be was that this is probably someone that knows me from high school or some coming to give me a hug or play joker or mess around in about three seconds later when I was on the ground I realized that wasn't the case a plainclothes officer had sprinted toward him from his left tackle dump body slammed him face first to the pavement hand cuffed him didn't tell him why and held them for ten to fifteen minutes the video shows a pretty clearly I never raised my arms I never ran and never did anything they could be seen in anyway as confrontational the carpeted soul to the wrong man wanted in a credit card fraud case Blake suffering elbow and knee scrapes and bruises now forty years old Blake who was ranked number four in the world to know six realizes how lucky he was to have been able to walk away given what's happened to so many other black men he sued the city but later withdrew it after the city agreed to establish a legal fellowship to investigate police misconduct and advocate for victims of police brutality the officer who was assaulted him was punished with the loss of four vacation days that's it and he sued Blake later for defamation suit that was thrown out in federal court as being frivolous several months earlier of course Eric garner was choked to death from behind by a New York City officer Daniel Pantaleo after saying I can't breathe eleven times face down on the sidewalk for allegedly selling cigarettes illegally and resisting arrest the medical examiner ruled that a homicide but a grand jury declined to indict the F. B. I. launched an investigation recommending that federal civil rights violations be charged but U. S.

Top 5 Movies That Educated Us About Racism
"Locum to film spotting on May Twenty Fifth in Minneapolis George Floyd. A black man was killed when a white police officer kept his knee on Floyd's neck for over eight minutes. As we've all seen protests broke out in the twin cities the next day, and then in cities across the country in the days of the followed as we record this Adam, it's more than a week after they started and the protests do continue, and all of this during a pandemic, that has killed over one hundred thousand Americans a disproportionate number of whom are people of Color. Color. Josh, of course we're so privileged in so many ways, but also in having this platform that is film spotting and to be honest with everyone. We weren't sure the best way to use it this week. One thing we knew we could do was share with our listeners the ways they could support the protesters, and we will put a link to some of those resources in the notes for this show over at film spotting dot net. Ultimately we settled on this top five top five movies that educated us about racism and I think listeners at casting. A good perspective on why this may be a fruitful topic. He says films can teach us so much. The introspection I've gained in life through films is incalculable. I grew up in a small rural town films Roth in my only glimpse into a larger world outside of the news empathy, compassion and understanding can all be gained if you look at movies as an expression and take the time to consider the film's point of view and Zach did share some of the titles that have had the biggest impact on him I think you're gonNA. Hear all if not most of them come up over the course of this show Zach continues in all honesty I don't think I have grasped the scope of. Of Institutional. Racism in the systems that support until I watched the George. Floyd video the Eric Garner Video Floyd Video. These are wrenching documentaries of another type. They are unvarnished documents of the cause of fear, and so many of our communities like other powerful films. They can't be turned away from, nor should they be thank Zach I. I think that's that's well said and yeah. Just back to what you're saying at the top atom about trying to figure out what the show should look like this week I I think we've both been trying to do a lot of listening this week. More listening than speaking and in doing that I've heard people of color just encourage others to amplify black voices so. I think that's kind of one of the motivations behind this list, for us, obviously I'm going to be doing talking on this show as usual, but but what I hope to do is turn the focus on these great films, and the necessary voices behind them, so speaking to email you know to my shame I've only had two real ways into the African American experience in my life, I would say one of those is my church tradition. It's absolutely a white church tradition for sure, but it has included partnerships with black churches. That's helped me understand what Christianity looks like for folks with different experiences than minds, so that's one avenue. Another avenue has been. In an avenue into the black experience has been. Are you know it's been books? It's been music. It's been TV, and of course it's mostly been movies, so this list is a reflection of where things stand now. It's not a comprehensive list. I don't pretend that my education on this is even near complete. So that means this time. If we get emails from listeners saying, how could you forget this or you include this rat rather than kind of Bristle? I'm going to be grateful because they'll be providing ways for that education to continue so so that's kind of where I'm at with this list right now. The best thing I think we can do is listen and learn I've heard that. This past week as well we don't always as white people have to feel compelled to comment or to interject ourselves into someone else's struggle, and that raises the question then. Should we do a show at all right now? At the same time you understand that to be silent seems to be complicit, and then if you decide to do a show, you have to consider what the substance of it is, and certainly I think I speak for both of us when I say that our objective is not to try to tell anyone that these are the five movies that define your experience. But to try to express what we've learned from cinema. How movies have informed our worldview and informed our alignment with the notion that should be self, evident and indisputable that black lives matter,
Our Nation is Burning
"My name is Jamie and I'm host. And I'm here with my co-host Ryan. Say Hello to our audience Ryan Lou everybody. I can't say the way ANJELICA, says it, but hey I'm trying to master too, and it just didn't work. You know just. A So this episode is a little different. It's not going to be as peppy as are other episodes where we talk about. Geeky pop culture staff. 'cause we hear black girl nerds always liked to talk about things that are relevant in the news, and really that's relevant in popular culture and right now it's very relevant is what's happening in America, and that's these recent protests that. are happening really all over the nation. It started in Minnesota surrounding the events that happen to Oh my goodness George Floyd. Yeah a lot of names. Yes, a just like pollen on twitter. It's gotta get straight yeah. Thank you, thank you for for helping me with that. One surrounding the events of the death of George Floyd and then these protests have expanded to several cities donation in New York. people have gone to our nation's capital in DC. really going straight to the White House quite frankly Los Angeles. Atlanta, which we'll talk about that. CNN was vandalized on national television storming the front doors of of that building, so it's been a very Very interesting weekend. To put it mildly We were here to really to talk about that to unpack it to also unpacked the history of why this all occurred. Because even though a lot of people are talking about words like riots and looting and wives, all of these things happening, or you know kind of talking about the actions behind. These events were not really talking about why people feel the need to do what they're doing. And again it has to do with the deaths of people like George Floyd also a Aubrey Brown. Wailer and and so many people even before them which unfortunately? Oh my God. You can't even name them all I. Mean it goes back to names like Eric Garner, Freddie Gray. Allow. It's just like people you don't even. You. Would that happen because you know, there's just certain ones. Unfortunately that are going to get the media attention, but there's just so many like the scare me. I was like I have to back away from Google for minute 'cause there's this is such a long Liz. It's such a long list. Exactly I mean and again think about the names of people even before social media yet where? The benefit of twitter. They didn't have the benefit of facebook to get the amplification or even to get there. I mean God to be able to have their execution filmed on a camera phone to to get their story out there No, no, you know, they will never get to hear about their stories. But there there's certainly a longlist of black men and women and children children yet. Who who have. been killed You know by hit by gunfire through state-sanctioned. Murders. By police officers, so yeah, we're. We're going to talk about that in this episode. It's a you know. Trigger warning for anybody WHO's been a victim of. Gun Violence Um who've been a victim of police brutality This is going to be a pretty heavy episode. We will try to Kinda. Talk about some moments of levity with. The F. of of twitter, and some of the crazy things that celebrities who had said you know to kind of balance things out, but also we really do want to respect the seriousness of this conversation, so I just want to give that trigger warning before we start. So let's dive into this Joey Yeah. Let's do it. So. Where do we even begin with this conversation? I just go with like how are feeling like so what like you know waking up this warning like the past week? Just like because I know a lot of people are I. Guess they're doing it by posting. You know whatever randomly comes with him on twitter and Instagram 'cause you know with some of US still at Kinda streak. Stay at home orders. Sometimes. You can't really go where you WANNA go or get out a little bit. So that's kind of how there vending so just like I. Guess just a simple. How you filling in just your your thoughts off the top about how you've been dealing with it. So the way I'm dealing with it as I'm avoiding emerging myself too deeply into social media, which for a while now I would say probably for the last couple of years to be quite honest with you I've not gotten to connected with social media and. you know especially now with what's going on because when I look at my time line whether it's twitter or facebook. Yeah, everything talking about this not look yeah. I've not looked at the full video. I felt like I had to look at it for four and a half hours, and it was the most miserable day. Ever I might not look your. Do not yeah, that's right because you work in television, so I didn't like just look away from it. And I was just like and I, and I repeatedly was dislike. Why are we continue to do this? You know you WANNA. Get the message out there, but I guess for me the thing where it's. Is it necessary to keep showing you know certain parts over and over again
Elderberry: Friend or Foe Against Viral Infections?
"So D-. What's the topic for this week this week? We're talking about a particular little fruit called elderberry elderberry. Yeah, they're little little fruit almost grow on a vine, grapes, and they have actually it's kind of known as black elderberry, because it has almost like the blackberry color. Okay, and but it almost looks like a blueberry so. So and many people may have heard of like elderberry. Wine was just about to say. Berry Jam Right. Yeah, so elderberry has been around for a very long time, and in fact it's been used medicinally by the native Americans, and by people in Europe, as a preventative treatment for infections and even for wound, healing, so but it it has garnered some more recent attention in you know as it because it was found to be very effective against the H, one N, one flu virus Oh In fact, there were studies showing that It, it worked in a couple of different ways against that one was as a preventive meaning that if you had it in your system, and then we're exposed to the virus that it prevented, you know basically like stopped the the virus from getting into host cells within the body, so prevented the infection altogether, and then other studies showed that another way that it was beneficial in in the flu virus. Was that it? if it, if you already were infected that it could actually like. Stop the infection from getting worse. Oh, so it had a so it works in two different ways in in relation to particular flu virus. So it got a lot of attention. in fact it, you know I mean it's been around because of that with the flu. And so people have been getting either extracts or or syrups of it, and sometimes they can come in capsules as a dried extract. And taking it as a preventive against the flu, so obviously during this cova time. They're probably taking it for that or any any evidence that it can help with that. Well that's where it starts to get a bit. controversial and it also gets to be a little bit like scary, because you have to really know whether or not, it's the right thing to be taking at the right time so and some of the where this kind of comes from. Was that people started you know when when covid became you know a pandemic. People started buying up elderberry supplements off. You know the Internet Mac I remember you. In early March every place that I looked including my own sources for physician grade elderberry. It was all out. And, then like you know back order. Yeah, I mean. People were just buying it up like crazy, and so you know obviously people were thinking I've got to get this stuff. 'cause he's list. We know that it can protect against certain flu, viruses and but the thing is, is that we? We obviously have no research. Right on whether it can be effective against Kovic nineteen virus however, I wanted to give our listeners just a little bit of background on. Why why it was considered to be a potential. you know supplement that could help people with their immunity. Okay so there was a research research study that was that was published in two thousand nine, and it demonstrated that elderberry have particular fighter nutrients in them called flavonoids that they bind to that influenza as one n one of. The virus in you know in the in the host cell, so they protect it from infecting the host cell, and that was the the study that a lot of this was based off. The also found that it's very high in vitamin C.. which is another you know nutrient that's essential with antiviral properties. So you know so there's so that so that was out there that the thing about elderberry that's concerning though is if so as a preventative. The the experts are saying it's great for that as a preventative, because if you don't have the virus And you want to protect yourself from it. It's very probable that it will you know it can be helpful in preventing you from getting
"garner" Discussed on Diane Rehm: On My Mind
"The reds to my hundred haitian with paul butler. He's professor peschiera georgetown university's school of law and author of the book chokehold policing black men so the leave family a barrick garner is satisfied that officer pantaleo no longer has a job with the new york city eddie police force but they say it's not enough. What do they want now diane. There were or at least twelve law enforcement officers and other first responders who were on the scene went. Mr garner was killed. There's now no question that what officer pantaleo did was against the n._y._p._d. Regulations and in fact because of this kinda complicated <hes> new york law when the judge recommended that officer pantaleo be dismissed from the force she had actually find that he committed a crime and so that's what she found. That's why she made her recommendation nonetheless. The only person connect it to the garner case who's gone to jail is ramsey orta the young man who shot the video. He always said that he was scared to show this video but again he felt it was his responsibility as a citizen to shine a light on what the police officers were doing allegedly in our name flat his he in jail. He says that that night after the video was public the n._y._p._d. Cain to his apartment building <hes> they position their car so oh that it's spotlight was shining on the window of the apartment where he lived and he said that was a message to him. Were coming for for you. Mr order like mr garner. You know he'd had some cases. He caught some cases. He had a history with a with drug crimes and the police got him. He says they set him up. They say that they found drugs in his apartment. His mom lived in the apartment as well. The prosecutor said tell you what if you plead guilty to are these drugs. We won't lock your mother up. If you make go to trial <hes> your mom was right here in the apartment with these drugs as well. We're gonna put her in jail as well as you. Mr orta made that deal and so right now. He's in jail what the family says is. There should be criminal consequences <hes> for these officers as well. That ship has sailed again. There's no state h. Charges and no federal charges. I understand that you as congressman jerry. Nadler is thinking about or it is going to hold hearings on possible just slave to strengthen what he calls police kennedy relations. What do you think that you know i think it's important that there be transparency and accountability and all institutions in government and certainly with regard to the police who are literally license to kill alive stood a number of times police have difficult jobs. I don't have the guts the courage to be a police officer. I respect my many friends who do that work but with that responsibility comes accountability and too often with regard to police departments all over the country they don't have that accountability <hes> they're not responsible to the people who they are supposed to serve him protect and so we have this breakdown in relations especially between communities of color and police and so i'm all all for any kind of alfred to transform police departments what president obama said in his commission on twenty first century policing is that to lofton now cops out this warrior mentality where they look at their communities like it's us against them. <hes> what president obama says is. The better model is guardians. Police officers are guardians of the community and if you think about it diane there's a whole different resum a whole different mindset you have if you wanna be a guardian then then if you wanna be a warrior and so in my book choko policing black men i recommend that among other things we need a whole lot more women women cops. It's proven that women officers are less likely to use force including deadly fourth. They're just as effective at fighting crime at catching. The bag is at everything. We want police officers to do but they're able to do that. In a way that involves what we call conflict resolution they talk it out more than take weapons is out that works better county how policing in minority communities differs. There's a lot of mistrust people have different <unk> experiences <hes> one of my buddies who's a police officer here in the district of columbia says that in this very segregated city in some ways they're the identity <unk> white areas and identifiably african american areas when he's in a white area and he sees kids they wave <hes> their experiences that their mom called the officer to get the cat out of the tree when he sees young children and african american communities especially east of the anacostia river were some of the poorer areas in the district of columbia kids run from this officer. They have the experience of you're the guy who who locked up my uncle <hes> you're the guard who rolls by and gives us that heart steer and so lots of tension lots of distrust lots of fear to be quite frank. You know i'm thinking now about these very low income kids in d._c. But last week i had the privilege of being at this really fancy house in sag harbor with a buddy of mine who makes lots and lots of money. He ran a company that it was very successful and now he's retired and he says you know what when i see that cop cars behind me as an african american man heart starts racing. I don't know what's going to happen and so you know sometimes class poverty that makes a difference difference and it certainly does here but there's something really thick about race about blackness and latino keno ness when it comes to interactions with the police and sell even middle income and upper income folks have the same same kinds of concerns that you know our brothers and sisters who are are low income half with regard to cops. What do you think thank. The garner family wants to do going forward. These are people who've become active with this <hes>. I don't think they started out as all that political but they want it. Their husband husband their father their brother they wanted mr garner's death to how some significance <hes> they wanted to push pushback against that lieutenant who when the officers on the scene when mr garner was killed text their boss to say that mr garner had died this lieutenant commander you're in the n._y._p._d. Texted back no big deal. The garner family wants the world role to know is that eric garner's death was a big deal and so they become very important activists from the movement with again tragic results diane you know we've all had experiences with the trauma arma that the death of our loved ones brings erica his daughter named after him. She was the face of the family. Every time there was a news conference and every time the mayor appeared in place to talk about criminal justice before she was there right in his face had a huge presence on social media about one year ago erica garner die. She was a young woman. People say she literally died of a broken heart. Her heart just stopped beating in so this is trauma and you know i think what we all should hope for now is that the work of this family and all the other activists in the movement for black lives and all all the other people of good wheel who are concerned about these issues that that people like mr garner people like sandra bland land tibia rice this whole host of black and latino men and women whose lives have been taken by police in a sense that these folks are martyrs an let their dass be meaningful. Let the tragedy of the era lives at least inspire the trans formation of police departments all over the country to give us the kind of transparency and democracy that we should demand from our government. How much hope do you have have that what happened to eric garner will truly heaven impact on chain jin police force i thinking and behavior across the country i want to be optimistic and i've had the pleasure of knowing you you for many years and i've had the privilege of being on the air with you lots and lots of times so many of these times. It kind of feels like we're talking about the same thing. It kind of feels like we're asking why it does the criminal justice system treat so many people like they don't count like they're expendable. Whether it's jailers there's or police or prosecutors lawmakers. give folks even brick and so thinking about oh how common these stories are. That's a reason not to be so hopeful. Aw at the same time i think that the movement for black lives has inspired a movement for for social justice so when i look at other movements like the civil rights movement i think that they've made our democracy democracy better all of that took a while and when i look at the old jim crow though segregated schools water fountains and cemeteries it took a hundred years for the law to change. Some people have described the criminal legal process. Now is the new jim crow will. I hope it doesn't take one hundred years but now there's a whole movement in a people who just wanna make our police and prosecutors really live up to what the constitution says about equal quilt justice under the law. I'm confident that at some point the new jim crow all will end and our democracy. We'll be better pump. Thank you always a.

"On. I think that's what the vast majority of new yorkers and americans want and the voices telling us go backwards. That's that's not what people are looking for. They want healing. They want us to put that pass that held us back behind us. Remember we've we've crashed over the commercial break but i wanna squeeze in one presidential question about this which would be in a de blasio administration with a de blasio chosen attorney general. How would the justice department approach approach. These cases lawrence. I think there should be an immediate commitment to speedy justice in fact i would support legislation of the federal level to require a time limit. Whenever ever there's an issue of police discipline our case involving a police officer in this case and an unarmed civilian the justice department needs to come in and make a decision in real time one year to year whatever frame that should be decided it should be mandatory and in my administration as president i would. I'd say the justice department makes very clear to local authorities. If you're not going to address this issue the justice department will step in in a speedy manner and address forthrightly forthrightly democratic presidential candidate new york city mayor bill de blasio. Thank you very much for joining us on this important night on this very important subject important in new york city and the country. Thank you very much mr bank you. We'll be joined by another democratic presidential candidate senator cory booker next and later in this hour. We'll be joined by the political scientists who predicted last year's forty seat pick up by the democrats in the house long before anyone else saw that coming and she's ready the prediction above the electoral college. It's very specific. You're gonna wanna take notes. What happened to senator cory booker in the last presidential debate when he began his opening statement will not happen next time. Thank you last week. The president of the united states attacked an american city city calling it. A disgusting rat infested rodent mass. We need a nation understands that these tired old language the crowd chanting fire pantaleo got their way today. The new york city police commissioner fired officer daniel pencil who was seen on video five years ago using a chokehold on eric garner that the medical examiner said caused eric garner's death and joining our discussion now is cory booker democratic senator from new jersey presidential candidate senator booker. I just wanted to begin with the developments. In the eric garner's story today <hes> that has been five years in the making and finally we see the firing a your former mayor yourself. What is your reaction to what you saw today. Well first of all this is justice delayed and five years to come to this conclusion. It's very frustrating the process but i think the larger point that i wanna make as guy who knows the fear of being followed because of the color of your skin being pulled over that for every name we know like eric garner there are thousands we do not ah for every video that we actually see there are thousands and thousands of incidents.

"I may have made similar mistakes and had i made those mistakes. I would've wished i had used the arrival of backup officers to give the situation more time time to make that arrest and wished that i released my grip before it became a chokehold every time i watch that video i say to myself i self is probably all of you do too. Mr garner don't do it. Comply officer pantaleo don't do it. I said that about the decisions made by both officer pantaleo mr garner but none of us can take back hard decisions most especially when they lead to the death of another human being being an after that long preamble after thirteen minutes thirteen minutes after the police commissioner began speaking today he finally said this therefore i agree with the deputy commissioner of trials legal findings recommendations this clear that daniel pantaleo no longer effectively service in new york city police officer joining us now is billable as the mayor of new york city in a democratic presidential candidate mr mayor. Thank you very much for joining us tonight on on this important night. You're very welcome lawyers. There was a lot of talk during the presidential the debate about why haven't you fired the officer. Could you just clarify that for the audience. It's been very clear. I think to people in new york who follow this but the the lines nsima th authority in these cases and how it works absolutely lawrence so our state law says that this is something that has to be handled within the n._y._p._d. Through through a public trial due process a decision by trial judge that goes to the commissioner's recommendation and the police commissioner by state law is the only person who can ultimately act in decades and decades of new york city history no matter what a mayor says or doesn't say the only actual ability to fire era police officer after due process is in the hands of the police commissioner and by the way if you want to see the sanctity of that due process and have it hold up in the end. It's actually important that a mayor not interfere because i believe justice has been done here finally took way too long but justice has been done and now it's. It's important that this decision stick. I'm sure there's going to be an attempt to challenge it in court but it's crucial that it stick that justice be served and that we're able to move move on as a city and a nation and i have to say lawrence. You've watched these situations all around the country. This is the premier police department a nations and not so long ago it would not have been necessarily assumed that trial inside the n._y._p._d. N._y._p._d. deputy commissioner as the judge would result old in this level of accountability. That judge said no that was prohibited chokehold that was wrong and this officer should be terminated. The first stepney commissioner concurred sent that to the commissioner the commissioner concur. This is actually the process working..

You will hear eric garner saying i can't breathe. Four times is going to if you're and the police investigation. The medical examiner testified that the chokehold killed eric garner show. Kohl's are against n._y._p._d. Rules but the a departmental judge hearing the case found that the chokehold was acceptable for the first couple of seconds because officer pencil eos grip tip slipped accidentally according to the judge into a chokehold. It's what happened after that that killed eric garner. Here's how the police commissioner described that today. During the struggle officer pantaleo had the opportunity to readjust his grip from prohibited chokehold seles lethal alternative but did not make use of that opportunity instead even once mr gar was moved to his side on the ground with his left after arm behind his back and his right hand still open and extended officer pantaleo kept his hands clasped and maintained the focal it was for that reason and the judges finding that officer pantaleo did not tell the truth to investigators that the judge recommended that daniel pencil a._o. Be fired her recommendation. Dacian was addressed to police commissioner james o'neill who has the exclusive authority to make the final departmental decision in cases like at this stand before you today confident that i've reached the correct decision and that has certainly not made it an easy decision.

So I have a, would you rather game? Okay. Hey, down to play. Okay. To is your favorite actor between the garners Jennifer or James? Well, you know, James, Garner's name really wasn't James garner Bumgarner and he changed it. Thought it didn't sound good enough, I guess so. And I love him and he's an amazing actor and I've worked Jen. So I would have to say, I can't. I have to let my vote on that. That is one of my favorite movies I can quote going on. I watched it. No joke like two weeks ago. Thank you. Yes, it is very good. I love it. Okay. Would you rather only be able to make one movie ever again, but when every word for it or only able to produce direct to TV films for lifetime hallmark for the rest of your life? Well, I got a family so I would have them. But I guess if you made one movie that won every award, it could be like avatar, and then you can add on saw, go for the when do one movie with win every word. Okay. What do you rather be Paul blurt in real life or only be able to produce Pablo mall, cops sequels for the rest of your entire career? I would. I would produce Lert mock-ups equal for the rest of my career is we have fun making them. Yeah, usually fund the last one nauseam us the best today. Hi, Kevin. The last one we shut the entire movie in the encore resort, really in the wind resort in Vegas the entire movie. No way I lived. I lived in the encore the entire. I just moved back from Vegas if you months ago. Really? Yeah. Why did you move there in the move back? So I was scandal. I know. I know this. I mean, maybe I know God now I don't. I don't do anything for a man. Let me just say that. Wrote right like that? No, I had a job out there. I was headlining in his show at the Paris hotel six nights a week. Where did you live? I lived on Flamingo and all isn't a great. How long did you live there? Yeah, I was ever like five months to live there. Yes. I want to buy a house out there. I can't go for a weekend because I'll buy. Yeah, but I lived there for four months for no problem. Totally. And now when I depends on the mindset of how different like now, when I go back and visit my friends, it's like those crazy like you're at a club and then you end up at sapphire and El Dorado and all of this, and it's one of those nights. But if you live there, great restaurants, yes. Oh. Shows so many every they're so cool to the people that I loved shooting there. So anyway. Yes. So then I would be able to shoot those movies and fun places and do that that I like that because if you were actually Paul blurred, it wouldn't be that great of life. Yeah, because the Heat's pretty cramped. And he get falls down a lot of you hard. That's a hard existence. All right. Would you rather director film or star in a film direct last one? Who would you rather be personal assistant for Adam Sandler a rebel Wilson. Wow. Probably Sandler just because I think it'd be a better job because I've known him longer. Yeah, we're really close friends, and I feel like I'd be able to descend -ticipant what he'd want more but rebels. Great. But I just feel like I would screw up that job then I would for Sandler. I love them both of them to. I love Adam Sandler. He's the best he is. Right, is the best. Yeah.

"To change at all but the first thing he did was put the sort of grandfather of these programmes as as as commissioner uh bill bratton and it's very much like the wire if you've watched it uh you know y w the first thing that you find out when you become mayor is that you have to satisfy a relatively small but regular revolving cast of important people in order to stay mayor and stay in power and the first thing that all these people ask for is they want increased police protection and they want and they want it in certain places and that's what that's how somebody to like build the blasier goes from being a candidate against the police to being you know somebody who deployed the police in the same way that might bloomberg did so all right so so tickets to the the actual uh arrest in the killing of eric garner is there was that that took place that day that you think broadly speaking there is a misunderstanding or a misapprehension or big one had this was one of the things that was really most shocking to me uh and one of the first things i found out when i started researching this book and and also not to digress too much i think this is kind of a a problem with three internet each journalism is that you get locked into narratives quickly because things happened so fast and the internet that all journalists have time to do is borrow from other journalists sprite so you know somebody reports eric garner is the father of five that becomes part of every story the next person reports there are was arrested trying to sell untaxed cigarettes that becomes part of the story but when you actually look at it what i found out was a eric garner wasn't even selling cigarettes that day now that is unquestionably what he did for a living and everybody connected with him we'll tell you that but he had um when i put together the time line of that death.

"I'm eating your book i mean i i think i read a review that that that compared it to the wire and i thought that was actually yeah i mean i thought that was pretty e e i thought there was that was a good comparison to make because you're really looking at a context and in garner seems to be sort of in the middle of it and so so let's start with tompkins bill would tell us about tompkins ville eric garner worked a pretty small little area it's a it's a triangular uh trash strewn little park um on staten island that's not that far from the ferry entrance and uh he stood more or less in the same place every day is a long time ago ten years ago this used to be like a straight up heroin shootinggallery over the years the areas become more gentrified uh the hardcore drug seen as more or less mood inside and um what garner basically was doing was selling untaxed cigarettes to people who congregated in the park and there were a lot of people there um through methadone out ex uh a lot of drunks um but he was he was not like a hardcore criminal by any stretch of the amount immagination he he he wants was in his youth uh but in now he was now and act gone older had health problems and had discovered this weird loophole in the law that allows him to make uh a pretty good living basically with this of misdemeanor form of a commerce is abates emu's playing off of the the delta between the taxes in new york city on cigarettes and what he could get it get them for in virginia and then would just come up and sell them.

"It sounds relatively harmless but if you here at the other way on its traumatising and i think that's that's the whole difference here it's that's a difference of perception and that's that's the problem is that for for most white americans we have no conception of of how this this these tactics play out um your white an era coroner's black the community he lived in with predominantly black did being white of factor ability one way or another to get the full story sure absolutely it was it was harder for to get people to trust me to talk about the story and as i went on and did the research i went through periods where i thought to myself is it even appropriate for me as a white person to tell the story may beyond the wrong person to be doing this but as i thought about this i realized that this is a white story as well as a black store through the reality is that eric garner died at the hands of real a police force and a criminal justice system that were designed entirely by white people uh for the most part and so this is not just a story about eric garner in the neighborhood that he lived in that was predominantly black it's also a story about the city bureaucracy and the law enforcement apparatus and the criminal justice system which is a white story as well so i think it's important for white reporters ultimately to own uh you know some of the responsibility for telling me stories because it's it's our story to an in a in a in a con a terrible way.

"For people who haven't seen the video in a long time who have never seen described the confrontation with the police well he again he's he's leaning up against the wall when they come and these two officers uh d'amico and pantelei o who were plainclothes uh police officers they come in and tell garnered that they're picking them up that he has to go and garner looks up at them incredulous and essentially says for what and they say for selling a cigarette and everybody on the block you can here in addition to garner you can hear ramsey order saying or who be sell a cigarette too and the at it's it's almost comment because they don't really know at first and then they sort of point down the street at somebody and i know that the person that there were pointing out was this street character named twin who happened to be the the guy who had been involved in the fight and you here and the video they're saying your boss that's the guy who was fighting so even on the tape there's this obvious part of the story which is that garner had naturally been selling a cigarette anybody and the police didn't even have a good excuse for picking him up but they continue this back and forth and garner asked to be left alone they tell you he has to go and he's you can see him struggling in his mind should i should i not and he just two sides at one point you know i've had enough i'm not going to do it and that's when he says this this stops today he kind of stands up straight and decides not to go and that's when they they decide to to jump him and again all this was completely avoidable they could have just told them the move around the corner and may instead insisted on dragging a man and that's what led to this awful incident.

"You can't just go to that corner and tell the guide imu off the corner or move around the block you have to actually arrest the guy as served there is a number so that you can prove to your boss that you did something and i think that's part of the dynamic here my my theory here is is that the officers in question were told that the ads they had to pick up garner the police as much as said that they were there because they responding to quote unquote specific conditions that had been seen by a superior officer on the way to to the precinct that day and i think garner was where he he was those specific conditions and they didn't have the option of just telling them to mover go away they had to pick them up and that's why there is this what what should have been a nothing incident an inch should never of devolved into anything violent turned into this deadly melee so the implication in your book is that the police saw the fight the fight that garner broke up did nothing about the fight but then came to get garner the guy harare got the fight bright yeah exactly and this is this is a a perfect metaphor for everything that's wrong with the modern policing strategies soon the things that we call broken windows policing uh which heavily emphasizes targeting minor offenders the whole theory of modern policing in most big cities in america is if you go after the little things you know people jumping styles riding bicycles the wrong way down a sidewalk urinating in public selling luc's uh doing a little things then people will be discouraged from walking out of their help their homes in the morning carrying a gun or with the intent to commit a more serious crime so the whole theory is let's stop.
