Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down.

Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped.

Interview With Danny Cannon On Gotham
"Cave. Bite has one of the show runners of Gaza. Danny can. Talk to me at the beginning of season one. What was the visual sensibility in aesthetic that you are trying to get across in Gotham as opposed to the other Batman related projects or you just trying to make this totally different? Well, no, no no. Completely different because you know I wanted to fit into into this great cannon, the work that's been gone for seventy five years. but at the same time might make it contemporary. And at the same time, it's twenty years from from Batman basically. So. We talked about a few things myself in the rights and when we first met and it seemed like everything we had in that first meeting as played out which is. New York in the seventies was was a a brilliant dangerous time like light seventies. Not just because of all the graffiti on trains and the rundown and Harlem, and all these dangerous places that you could go to his fooling down places but culturally, it was really good music films. It was a hip hop star. Know. New Wave. Everything. Would it culturally it was really great. We talked about that law but the talks about the Kennedy in. London. And and the have and the have nots and that industrial revolution age and. That something I wanted to bring into the fact that city that hasn't been gentrified yet is still locked in the past and probably falling down a little bit. So all the sets of design slightly askew with like slightly going down you know like the whole thing is crumbling been held up with good and things like that, and then the last thing we spoke about was rim fairy tales and and the fact that as adult fairy tale element to. To honor the comic book idea of it. And so those three elements thrown together. And then must is to keep your feet on the ground. So it's it feels really reliable. It seems like it also has a color, its own color Palette jet texture that we haven't really seen in other comic book adaptations to now I mean that was just because with all of those influences coming in there are certain gels you caught through. There was a contemporary look we didn't do. We could do a test now bicycler whereas like is this often cars that cars this governed governor it's the same thing as colors and. Trying to get the crews taste and and and the performance tastes into that same thing. It's it's good and it was easier than we thought. You know it's it's quite. Nobody knows what period is if feels comfortable because it feels very familiar. That yet, but nothing sticking out you to to portray that. Theatrical reality that was one of the series executive producers and Danny Cannon, whose asked if Gotham itself as a character in this without doubt. Yeah. Without doubt that's why the show that was very much. Bruno's intentions had to be a character and all the designing I did was was was on that. Was myself in the production. drew for a long time just to get I found myself. It wasn't just drawing the new buildings that wanted to insert into New York will take away the glass buildings out of New York. Older Dickensian style attended the century English buildings It it I I. Drew Skies, and that was I don't know where that came from US listened to music and I'd start during stormy skies everywhere and I was like. That's it that stat stats when I got it was when I I put stormy sky on everything. Now, Gotham is a huge hit on twitter. How do feel about beating every other show on twitter are really Fila get on twitter? Obviously doesn't need me. Yeah right yeah. I think that's wonderful I. You know to be talked about Israeli sometimes even better than watched I think it would be I. I. It's Great. As long as I can promise those nice people that allowed that to happen that the show gets better and better, and there's plenty to talk about are there any character storylines you would like to bring in that you haven't brought in already? We have a great relationship with DC and we sit down with them constantly and Ask about origins of various characters and. It's amazing. How many don't have Origins. Many characters just turned up his bad guys you know in the and so. It's really. We feel on to be able to go back in this. Great. Legacy and and and UH. site. Okay. So how did they turn up like that? How did they have? So. Yeah. Now we're having a lot of fun.
Life in Limbo
"Amina welcome to the show man. So happy to have you. Thank you for having me congratulations on your most recent album limbaugh. How did you approach thinking about creating this album? Is the follow too good for you. I just started about the word legacy a lot more when meeting them both. So I wanted to make something that wasn't just super current to the times of a more. A. Ten years down on. About the title limbo. What does that mean? A lot of people thought it was speaking to the Times that we're in because I know that we're all currently in the. Title for a good year and a half for me I felt like I was stuck between two places from a young man to over. Kind of just figuring it out personally. But I definitely think people are connected with the project although I will say the day drive limbo twitter had a strong reaction to one track in particular becky. In attract, you talk about an interracial relationship with a white girl I kinda the challenges there was also within your family. There are a lot of folks who were kind of bothered by the song I'm curious like did you expect any of the response that you? I think me and my boys off knew that that was going to happen to immediately went into thinking was an ode to White One stories more. So about a black important Oregon stories is about me and middle school it completely woke me up to the Society of Portland what it's like growing up there and and how you look at truth. So I didn't really WANNA. Like shy away from that. You know there's a lot going on in Portland right now just between the uprisings and federal agents snatching protesters off the streets I visited Portland before I got a lot of stairs understand why? What are you making sense of what do you think of what's going on your city right now I'm a bit bitter sweet on it and I said that multiple times because as a black person going important organ, we never felt welcomed. We never felt like the city cater to us more than the scene is a liberal city but has so much racism behind the feds. And the police have so much work to do but the community of Portland, the people protesting and have a lot of work to do as well. People who are on the front lines are the same people kicking out black families out of their neighborhoods and gentrifying held out of these neighborhoods. So they're kicking the black family out but have a black lives matter sign on. Yeah I mean and it's not just Portland is mini CDs across the country that had to kind of do that working and wrecking live the fact that like this isn't something that just kind of crept up out of nowhere I wanNA. Come back to the album of bit. You share how the Becky was something you were thinking about in middle school you know that the subject matter there is there a track on the album that you kind of most cashes where you are right now the track burden? Really shows you where I'm at mentally I just kind of talk about my friends my life would I've been up to.
From The City To The Megalopolis
"It's amazing to think that. In the nineteenth century about three percent of humanity lived in cities and today. That number is fifty percent, and it's growing rapidly. We live in the age of the Megalopolis. We're going to talk about that now with Dr, Salvatori satis Dr set. This is an emeritus professor of the history of classical art and archaeology at the school normality superiore in Pisa in Italy. He's an archaeologist and art historian. He's the chairman of the Louvre Museum. Scientific Council his the author of several books on art. Art History and he's known as the conscience of Italy for his role in spot, leading the neglect of it all national cultural heritage. His book is if Venice dies, and it's a look, not only at in the struggles, Venison the twenty first century, but at the increasing urbanisation of civilization general doctor says thanks for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. Can you talk about if finished is? How much of it is about Venice? And how much of it is it about the changing urban landscape across the planet? Well my intention in writing. This book was to focus on Venice. In order to make people meditate about what's going on on on a global scale about what I would call the shape the form of the city Savannah's. Sample account that example, contrasting some of the most disturbing. Of Urbanization in our current world end, it is quite dramatic. What's going on in your book? You explain there are fifteen megalopolis. That have over twenty million people is the advent of these massive cities twenty million people cities people have to live somewhere is is that a good thing or a bad thing? Why does it concern you well? I'm concerned about the quality of life. Those people because although this organization may look something that happens naturally, it is also prompted by economic forces. It is a concentration of workforce. which is not necessarily living in good conditions in order to create profit for a very low number of people, so it's the usual formula ninety nine percent, the best one percent, the megalopolis is a consequence of a complication of the world, the general commodification of the world that includes to an increasing extent human beings. This is just a very efficient thing for the elites to have a concentration of workforce where people who will be able to work cheaper and produce more by being right there at the center of production. Is that what? What you're saying, produce more and also by more become consumers, because workers are simultaneously consumer, so there is a a bishop's or two, if you so wish seal between being workers and consumers and I, think that there are two your which are combined, and normally one is made. Opera is the big over-centralisation to the other one is the verticalisation of AF- architecture. May Boca Use a? It's an example Chung Ching in China which had the six hundred thousand people in the nineteen thirty s and now thirty four million people living in it. I talked to contrast this with a different. Format Orbis or shape of the city. A form of the city in which that is some sort of harmony of balance between the body of the citizen and the body of the city where the citizen doesn't feel The one thing I'm saying is that it is good that we presser diversity in urban form and preserving diversity means among other things saving and saving the other historical see also because there is in even more. More disturbing feature of urban farming cities taking shape in in our time, and that is the fact that wide ancient cities. Historical CDs had a boundary around the city in the case of Venice Lagoon, case of other cities, the walls around the city now the boundaries around the boundaries of the city are being gradually substituted by boundaries within the city which has boundaries between the gentrified areas. For. The Hey and the have nots. You can see that in Paris very well. This can impact is. Also in Rome or in Milan dimension, Italian cities, the gated communities are increasingly frequent all around the world, but the gated communities are for those who are wealthy or relatively wealthy, while the other people are condemned to live in favelas. Zeal or in in be don't be like this aim French. I'm just thinking of Paris. I was just in Paris with a group. And I was explaining how they protect the center of Paris where everything is the months heart, scale you know six or eight story tall monster building, so you can see the domes, and you can see the spires, and you can see the Eiffel Tower and then right when you get to the periphery. Periphery this big boulevard that circles the city outside of that. It's just no-holds-barred, and it's like keeping the Cadillac Bay outside of that periphery. It's forced of skyscrapers within that you've got the elegance of the classic people friendly city that is in a sense, a gated community, because it's unaffordable for lot of people, and they end up outside a town in the rougher downtrodden neighborhoods. This is what's going on. Your description is absolutely perfect I think. But this involves a separation with inside, which is socially potentially very dangerous for the future. which is not precisely what I would call democracy.
Cheriss May & Idris T Solomon
"Thanks for doing this guys for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about what role I. wanted the show to play in terms of the dialogue that's happening. With this and I thought it was better than me. Sort of giving voice to it myself that it be a much better to have a dialogue with people is one of the things. I was realizing over the last two weeks outside of my own house. Old I really haven't discussed this stuff in. You know my wife and I have talked about how `bout it, but I really hadn't. Beyond that really. Considered? What kind of conversations I? I would want to have with people outside of my own home. My own faith and I think it is important dialogue to have especially. Amongst photographers photography are actually documenting. What's happening right now, but it will also lived the experience of being. Covering this. Just, just briefly I I experienced the LA riots back in I think it was ninety to ninety one. And one of the things and I grew up in that neighborhood I grow near arts in Normandy probably about two miles. My family's home is is there. And one of the things that I remember very vividly. Besides all the cast that was happening is the presence of a lot of photographers in those communities. Not just the photo journalist, but a lot of people who were just photographing independently. One of the things that really bothered me about that. Is that a lot of those people had never come to the community photographic before. That, many of them would not come back afterwards. And then later on when I would look at portfolios. like six months to a year later I would see images. That were made during the riot. But they were without any sort of context or any sort of greater egg relation of what had happened what led to those events happening? Changing and that's spurred me to work on a project. That I've been working on now for thirty years on downtown Los Angeles largely because I felt like at the time. This is years before it became what it is now in terms of gentrification, but it was a part of Los Angeles I had grown up in and I felt that had been dismissed to a great degree and I just wanted to. Use My camera to sort of illustrate. What I felt was beautiful, interesting about a part of Los Angeles that was fiving and important to a minority community here in Los Angeles now it's become gentrified in now. It's completely at very very different thing, but as I see the events of the last couple of weeks, I have thought very much the same thing. You're saying all these people going out and making photographs. And I just felt like you know us as photographers regardless of race. We have to think about. Not just the kinds of pictures that we make, but those pictures are intended for. And the impact it can have especially if those of us who are out there. Making photographs are not working journalists and I just wanted to have a dialogue with both of you. Because you guys are both working photographers on the east, coast. Photographing these events and Photographing. Events. Not only American society with Black Cultural Society before going to continue doing this. And I just to hear I your own personal. How you are both Alliott. Both are personally experiencing these events. And then we can get into much greater conversation in terms of the role of photography now and going forward, cherise, I think you can take since you've actually been out in a failed. Covering summit is now well I have to say first and foremost as a black woman have a personal stake in experience with what's going on. I have my personal stories of you know experiencing racism. I can remember as far back as I was in third grade. The was third grade when I I was called a nigger. From there I became more aware of that in. It has carried through to the woman. I am today. I've had experiences of being stopped. While driving my car in questioned, whose car is this where you going? Where do you live, you know? At broke. No Laws I've had experiences of male male family members and friends who have had violent interactions so having that personal story it gives me a perspective when I go in and I'm actually covering the current the current things that are going on now with the protest in the demonstrations that are happening all over. ME. What I will say is this time it feels different of cupboard, protests and things before, but this time it feels like the youth are really what what I've seen. What I've noticed is the youth are more engaged in their on fire in their serious You can see that there are so many young people out there. In their organized they have an agenda. They have action items. And they're calling for certain things to be done or they will continue. With the protests with the work that feels very different, because it's a stronger a stronger voice now the other thing I'm seeing that's different out there are. There are more white people out there this time. Whereas before it was mostly black, people who were calling you know saying. Stop doing this to me. And calling for change now you have white youth who were out there as well as I saw other people, too, but like I said it's been mostly like a younger movement in terms of who are really out there in the numbers with them. Having what experience yesterday was. They have printed out their agenda and these action items in. They've given it to their legislative representatives. They're calling them. They're following up, so that's been probably like the biggest thing I've seen. Is that the youth are more engaged which. May Have Time In. They're not giving up in there, not scared That's the other thing you know. They're not scared to voice the problems that they see. They're not. To demand for these changes. This time around of being closer to home and I've been watching. Some of my friends out. There believe covering this protest top to bottom in light was such a high level of qualities amazing. Is One of those things where. Fast, forward, twenty thirty forty years and twenty twenty is in the history books. Would be proud to say that I know a lot of top officials. Who when documenting this time in history? So I've been close to home, you know I have a five year old son, and for me. The question of should I be out there? Covering this or should I be here covering my son? and. That's been a big question mark throughout the last week and a half when. The protests began and last night was the first night that. You know told my wife I'm going to go out there. It will fuel events happening in picked when I was close to home in. Backed up mcgeer? Wait now and by the time I got is the crowd had already dispersed. I was online trying to figure out if there was something else happening now close enough that I can get to. And the social media feeds had updated at that time so I, just said all right. Let me just go home. When I got home I started. Seeing all feeds, update and I just. decided to stay home, but you know my wife was. Worried rightfully so I would have been choosing to go out after the curfew. Dowse set in New York, which means that. Just, walk into my car I. could have just been arrested. Just welcome to the car or driving Cardin I'm seeing footage of police officers. Yanking people out of the car the after curfew, so those are the things that you ought. To Take into consideration and you know I. didn't grow was father's radio home so the last thing I wanna do is put myself in this situation where I'm not at home for my son so. I do know that they are the ways that we can be protesting that we can't be revolutionizing. You know it's not just a one-size-fits-all type of situation you know on. We can revolutionize by reading informing ourselves equipment ourselves with enough knowledge and information today. The was not pulled over is anymore. Re can right you know contribute with words you know. I'm seeing a lot of photographers being jerked around with the licensing so so so bringing awareness to how can properly get business stuff to together Sodano? Getting jerked and we get the proper value for all photos does a lot of different ways that we can contribute to this protest without being in front
The South Bronx Restaurant That Ended Its Relationship With World Central Kitchen
"Lama rather issued a statement saying that they were breaking relationships with world central kitchen. Wick which that people have followed the wick. The last couple of years the public face of it is a chef whose andress and there was a statement and rather published it. We re published it on Tino rebels. The statement took off it. Basically said the La Mirada had questions about W C K that there were going break the relationships because of things that were promised. We're not promised if you know the history of La Mirada as well and I don't think a lot of people. Outside of the immigrant rights community knows that it is a restaurant owned by an undocumented family. They have been a symbolic restaurant leader in the immigrant rights movement one of the members of the family. Margo Sylvia soviet-era was one of the original members of the Dream Nine. And actually if you watch the film the infiltrators he is one of the main characters in that documentary retelling and people that are in the know know what La Moraleja represents and it's the the reaction was really fascinating because I think people that know the history of morale understood why the restaurant was saying. Hey you know what? Wc Not our cup of tea. We're actually going to go directly community. We've been we've had a soup kitchen. We're going to keep trying to raise money to directly feed people in the South Bronx which by the way one of the hardest hit places in the world is very upfront with its customers. So they issued the statement and it got it got you know like. I said people that know the restaurant where like yes. That's what I'm that's what they do and people that don't know the restaurant where like. Oh my God. You're taking advantage of shifting chef. Jose Andreas and K and shame on you guys and I feel like there was something missing in not hearing with other had to say and all this so I did want to talk to hide. We talked on Friday. They're extremely busy. Like this is a family owned business. And they work all the time so for me to get twenty minutes with her on. The phone during the day wasn't accomplishment because we were trying to schedule this for a couple of days. She was finally able to find time on Friday afternoon. We talked now. We recorded phone conversation so this is not a online interview so there might be times where you have problems hearing but let me just give you the crux of what. She told me the concerns of the relationships of WC cage. She just had questions. She didn't want to hand handover forms. She saw that other restaurants in the South Bronx getting support. There were tied to developers and people that are gentrifying the neighborhood. And if you're following what's going on the South Bronx recently like it's an issue. Gentrification is an issue and I think la rather out of principle was like. We're not going down that route so that was a big thing the other issues that. W C K. According to Laura didn't deliver on their promises to helping parts of the South Bronx that they've decided to go to other restaurants instead of Lemerre which has a deeper history right so that summer to number three once. They did a little bit of looking into it. And the statement that W C K shared with Latino rebels. I believe on Thursday didn't deny that. Wc K in Puerto Rico had government contracts and had DHS employees HSI which is part of ice handing out food in Puerto Rico and Lamoureux others like what's up with that so from a principal standpoint. They're like we don't want to do this. We're breaking this and I think I want you to hear this interview with those points in mind and understand that I wanted to give the restaurant a voice even if it was a voice over the phone that we can get really
In Defense of Wet Markets
"I mean any of this. Had you imagined that markets would be at the center of kind of global controversy. I did not in fact I had planned on being a spectator like everyone else in reading about what was going on and I had an interest in what was happening in the public health level and was surprised when people started talking about what markets and making comments about Chinese Diet's and as someone who's lived in Asia and is interested in in markets. I took an interest in the story so just basic terminology. What is a wet market? Yeah there's so this question of what is what market actually is important. Because there's a lot of confusion about that in the news about it. The term wet market originated in Asia in Hong Kong and Singapore and it was used to distinguish wet markets from dry markets markets. Where they sell packaged goods durable goods. A good example would be the textile markets. You'll find in a lot of Asian cities. A wet market is a place where you sell fresh produce meat fish and seafood. And it's called the wet market because often they are wet One of the ways that these markets clean down all of them. Some of them is that they would hose down the floor. And so that's one reason why it's wet. Also the fish and seafood markets often isis used for packing them. And so that also okay sales. So I'm just I'm just being macabre. It's not wet because it's drenched in the blood of you know of chickens or something. It's it's wet because of is from C. Food and from washing it afterwards. Exactly and actually one of the confusions about these wet markets is that they don't all have live animals. It's very uncommon for them to have wildlife animals and less common for those to be exotic wildlife animals. One of the things. I always make a point here. In the United States talking to people about what markets is that this is actually a normal way for people to get food in Asia in Europe In most places outside of the United States and people don't do one stop shop shopping at a supermarket at. It's more common for them to go every couple of days they WANNA get fresh cheap food and the best places do that are often these local vendors. It's an amazing conversation. Imagine a world in which not. Everything is bought at a win. Dixie imagine a world where not. Everything is packaged sanitize in Saran wrap. That's that's the other thing. Is it even one hundred percent certain that we know that wet markets were the the beginning point of this pandemic? That's a great question. Actually 'em so the reason there is all of this. Interesting markets is because there is a a a wet market Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market in the city of Wuhan had a bunch of people who were among the first that China identified as testing positive for the virus. Now since then alternative. Hypotheses have come out one of them. There is a lab that studied other viruses. Some people speculated it might have accidentally got out most scientists. Say this is probably unlikely. But it's a possibility. I also think you can't rule out the possibility of habitat encouraging their colonies of bats near near the cities. And it's possible that people had moved into the those environments and got an expose that way so there's a lot of uncertainty about where it might have come from. I think one of the reasons why this story as circulated is because pandemic win. These kinds of threats are coming. It's really common for people to want to look for some way to say that this is not going to affect me so they very quickly looked for some evidence that this is because of some other things from other people and so people looked at the United States and in Europe said. Oh it's these wet markets. It's weird bizarre Chinese habits with food. They eat. This isn't us and it was a way to sort of scapegoat. Their anxieties at the danger. In this of course is that it causes people to ignore out their own cultures. Have these risks also causes not to take at measures to protect themselves from the epidemic in so many places were slow to respond to Africa in our own country? I think you'd mentioned lay all the famous food market in the center of Paris as an example of of how we have lost touch with With this mode of shopping as city urban planners have come through the gentrify and kind of clear out the the messy noisy organic chaos that any great market necessarily includes. What have we lost here in the West in moving away from this style of shopping and and and eating you lose that sense of community for the family businesses? They can't live elsewhere often. They live near where these markets are. And it's not practical for them to to move their stand to the new markets and so often the end of those family businesses food markets are deeply integrated into the local communities. And that's one thing that gets lost another thing that gets losses. I think in consumers in especially in the United States but you can see this happening in Europe as well lose a sense of where their food comes from so in the past the the wet market. The food market would have been At the entry point of cities would have been at ports river ways. The food would have been there at if they had live animals. People have seen the animals that they didn't they at least would have seen you know the the animal carcass and had a sense of where the what what the food and the meat was coming from as it gets moved backstage outside cities like the way we haven't the United States people who are seeing package wrapped foods and they don't have a sense of where that food is coming from and it often these moves because they're pushed by the city. They often favor as certain companies often bigger companies over the smaller smaller vendors interest so it also contributes to to that change through a long. You know a century long battle for PREMACY IN TERMS OF SHOPPING HABITS. Do you do you think. Wet markets will survive. Are we doomed to kind of a corporate Supermarket Culture. You know throughout the world. I hope wet market culture survives. I also think there's an ass I think there is a growth and supermarkets in Asia. And I'm sure that after this crisis they will probably be more successful than a lot of these Margaret. Because THEY'RE LARGER COMPANIES. They have kind of cash reserves to handle the kind of crisis. They're more likely to take their business online. So even in China has been a growth in online shopping and they're probably going to capitalize off the concern about safety in wet markets and the perception. That if you package food and you processed food it's safer and I say perception because again. There are plenty of outbreaks in the United States. That we've had in terms of packaged produce or in terms of meat that can be traced back to our EILLY industrial system. So it's not. It's not unique to wet markets that said. I hope that what markets will continue in there. Some sort of irony in that. There is a growth in interest in these kinds of markets. They're popular with tourists. You can see this hike place in Seattle so the popular tourist. Because it's Kinda more. It seemed to be a romantic authentic way of getting a sense of local food culture. There's a lot of interest in farmers markets in the United States because people want to have a more connection to the people actually produce food right. I think even though the big story looks like the rise of supermarkets and disappearance of these markets. I think there will be a continuous of them.
Best of British Columbia
"Low travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel. Podcast we are coming at you today from our e Pop H. Q. The show that teaches you how to travel more. Well spend less except for staying at home. So we're here to give you a little bit of inspiration today.

I don't know why I love it. she hates it. But we're going to British Columbia today with you and this hat is from a story in British Columbia right outside of Whistler Coast mountain represent so I figured she said tribe. Your hair looks awful. Go put on a hat. So this is what I hate that. Trav- your hair looks awful. Go put on ABC. Wait a minute make us on her. Might just relaying. What happened five minutes before play guy either way quarantines getting us? It's getting a lot of time spent together and you know we somewhat too much time. We're used to spending a lot of time together but court excuse me. Quarantine is a little bit of a different animal. I do not hate the hat. I hate this. You literally said I hate this head a little too flat for me but anyway regardless British Columbia and we love the breweries in British Columbia. Yes today this is part of our quarantine. Diaries session so you can watch us on. If you're watching it then you get to see that if you're listening on the podcast and you do want to see our faces our situation and see what had a might wear for the next one. You can go do our instagram at extra packing peanuts and check it out there. So these are shorter. Form unedited podcast. That we're putting in addition to a regular Tuesday longer form podcasts. So that you have more wanderlust more travel love in your ears during the quarantines as we all go a little bit stir quarantine that's like during the quarantine it is now. I think a proper now. I think it should be Catholic. Quarantine entreprenuering quarantine and so what we've been doing recently and what we're going to do today is our best of series and this is where we pick a destination today. British Columbia Heather has a few card down there. She mixes them up and then she asked us and we don't prep for this at all. What our best memories of this specific places so today. We're doing a whole province and it's GonNa be hard because we spent a lot of time in British Columbia and we've gone all around British Columbia. Obviously we spend a ton of time in Victoria. Think Hoover Islands part of British Columbia? Spending time in Vancouver. We've been up to whistler. We'd been out to the Okinawa Gin. So it's going to be hard to pick somewhere places but hey that's what happens. That's the tough job of being travel. Podcast SO WE HAVE DESTINATION. Diaries and we have one. I'm pretty sure on Vancouver so we don't have one. I think on the whole of British Columbia. So you'll be getting some new content here with this little mini series. And I guess we should just jump right in. Let's do it okay. The first card is oh how appropriate best during so. I've been thinking a lot about this. And she told me redoing British Columbia literary four minutes ago and there have been a lot of places that we've drank at Including Vancouver we one time. We're in Vancouver for twenty one days and I did twenty one breweries and twenty days and I was pregnant so I did zero breweries. I mean I went to them but yeah so and we've spent a lot of time in Victoria. And some great wineries out in the Okinawan and all but for me. I think it will come back to a beer. Coast Mountain honorable mention and because of the hat. Awesome little brewery up in squamish tackling games. Garmisch just south of whistler fun little place cool like everything wanting to bury small little joint. That heather actually stayed in the car because again. I think you're pregnant at that point and she took a nap. I just went in and had a little flight by myself. You know really neat. People could be the coast from the brewery. No but it's called coast to Coast Mountain. Which is also a weird name. My name like it's just a weird. You're just taking two words and putting them together but it works and I love the hat and I'd like to branding but my number one favorite. So it's not honorable mention. Okay right you told me that we could go longer than fifteen minutes. Because now we have a compressor so we can put it on. Igt No if you read our post from last week. But I had the hardest time trying to get our videos out because if you video over fifteen minutes you have to do it from your granddaughter and it has to be an MP anyway. It was a whole long saga. But I bought the software. Because what does one do? I mean we needed. We needed to get the videos to you. We needed to get the videos. You so then Heather told. I said we are GONNA be fifty minutes is going to be hard for British Columbia said. Oh no no we got we got the compressor we can do want so. My overall favorite drink is strathcona brewing in Vancouver for two reasons. One Strathcona brewing itself has really good beer. Super Cool brewery really hipster in in like a gentrifying neighborhood for sure but they also at the time we were there and I'm not sure if the guy still does this but there is a gypsy. Burr call who runs a Burri called superfly. Meaning he doesn't have his own brewery brews at Strathcona and comes up and bruised. They're apparently lives in a van. No joke down by a river and then comes up to strathcona debris here and there and this was two years ago so things could have could have changed this super flex beer is awesome so they sell super flex at Strathcona brewing and their beers incredible and then bring has their own beer and their beer is really good too so those my if you want the best drink we've had in British Columbia head to Strathcona brewing. Try and try to get your hands on superfly which you can get in grocery stores and convenience stores to
"gentrifying" Discussed on WWL
"Already in progress about that so I've been something I enjoy something so is my psychotherapies activists who have been very very vocal opponents of the magic city at the moment say that it is you and other developers who are coming in gentrifying neighborhoods that are driving long time residents and business owners out they simply can't afford the rising rents I'd I don't agree with that I don't think it's true are as I said before our mission is to bring people in and for us to be a source of pride within the community and to really celebrate little Haiti and the truth is a lot of these residents from moving out even before I came into this community is there haven't been any new buildings built here so I think again our what our mission is to revitalize in a very responsible inclusive regenerative way so I think we have the opportunity to help actually do the opposite and do something really positive for this community that said I think around the country and around the world real estate prices are right rising naturally that's I wish I was that powerful I don't have that control over that that's happening because people are moving into cities and it's rare Adam hi Adam great to meet you which is why so much for coming out I'm told that this is like the place to eat in little Haiti the study also amazing yeah as a Republican Miami's mayor Francis Suarez has been praised for facing the realities of climate change head on but admits that climate gentrification is an equally unstoppable force we were driving around parts of Miami wealthier parts of my that are flood prone.

Top things to do in Berlin
"I. I'd like to welcome the show. Audrey Scott and Daniel knoll from an cornered market DOT COM or at welcome back to the show I should say and we brought Audrey and and Daniel back to talk about Berlin Germany Audrey and Daniel Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having us back and I say welcome back to the show but I. I don't know if I could come up with all the Times you've been the show. We certainly done wonderful episodes together on prog and Bangladesh are the two that really stand out for me. I think there may maybe some other ones and there certainly some this. We can travels in there also but I put a list of all the shows they have been on in the show notes so we don't have to waste time with that but we have not covered Berlin Lynn Germany in quite a long time. I was really surprised how long it had been more than a decade since we've talked about a rather rapidly changing city Berlin has changed a lot lot since we covered it the first time in the show for sure and you guys happened to live there now. Yeah we've actually called Berlin are home now for about seven years. It's hard to believe Aleve and even within that time it's changed quite a lot so if we go back over a decade yeah. There's been a lot of changes well so this seemed like a really good excuse to have two of my favorite guests back on the show. Why should someone think about going to Berlin? Well it it certainly seems to be enjoying an another up surgeon ovulating. Correct me if I'm wrong on the statistics. I think it's the third most popular destination in Europe. And it's interesting because Berlin on the surface is is not a traditional European destination meaning. It doesn't have preserved old town like Prague Nick or even like many of the other incredible credible cities in Europe but when it has a has its dynamism feel to it and creativity and energy and so people don't really come to Berlin to see Z.. Beautiful old buildings there are still a few that remain. There's obviously really interesting history here but it's more for its creative field for its neighborhoods spor. There's also has a really big party scene for those who like clubbing. It's more about the feel of the place will. Then I think the other two most popular cities than would would be London and Paris. I believe you're talking about and compared to the two of them it's also had a reputation for being less expensive low. I don't know if that's still true. I think Jewish rush to a great degree. It is having just visited London. I think we can. We can vouch for that London. Right still a great city but yeah so yes certainly your dollar euro or whatever you can be carrying goes a little bit further and I think it's just a different city. Virginia from what Adriana said before I think when people come away their struck with the difficulty to articulate why Berlin sticks with them in a way that it does in the word they often use five. I love the divider that city. Such an interesting vibe that the atmosphere and I think a lot of s to do with the fact that religion is in a constant state of Flux Fox and perhaps in a constant state of Renaissance reimagining itself will in you mention concentrate of luck so the first time I was in Berlin. We've talked about this on. The show was a year after the wall fell and the the heart of the city. The center of the activity was Kurfurstendamm. Turn down on the western side and you could still see the bullet holes in the walls on. What was East Germany? You could hardly find any trace of the wall but you wouldn't meet. You didn't need it to tell what had been East. Germany was still fairly drab on that side of in a lot of the buildings and things I think the the last time I was back in a completely flipped the vibrant activity was where it traditionally was in the eastern part of the city buttered standard that continues continues to change since I have been there. Yeah I mean. The city is constantly changing in Berlin is a very neighborhood focused city so the neighborhoods are always experience in different levels of renaissance also in their hip when they're not hit but for especially after the wall fell East Berlin. What was formerly east? Berlin was the hub hub for heart for artists and the mayor actually was rather smart. He said we have all these really big industrial buildings. We have all this space and actually opened up four artists for basically like squatter communities and art studios and stuff and so that attracted a lot of artists in creative types to the city in. So you still feel let today but some of the traditional areas where that was like Mitte has now become a bit too expensive a little bit too gentrified now. Those artists communities are going a little bit more. Let's say towards the edges where there still is available space will emit a would be middle so literally the middle of the city. Yeah it's the middle of the city but it was the heart of former East Berlin and all the neighborhoods have changed quite a bit like we live in Nikon in the south and our neighborhood. We talked to Berliners who grew up appear in their thirties forties. Saying when I was young you never went there. That was considered a bad place to go. Someone joked it was like the Harlem like in the bad days but but now it's a vibrant community. We've got museums and galleries. But also it's still has this connection to its roots. which is a worker community as as well as an immigrant community? So it's this interesting dynamic between a little bit of gentrification which is a big issue in Berlin right now but it still has its soul in terms of the working man every day. Many hood is well excellent. Well let's start to put some structure on. That's what kind of itinerary would you recommend for someone who's coming to Berlin especially for the first time time. Okay well that really depends on the number of day. Well let's target. Let's talk about a week for Berlin and day trips from Berlin. I think the first piece of advice that we might give to. Someone has to understand that Berlin. Is I believe approximately three hundred sixty miles square miles in terms of landmass. So you're not gonna be able to cover the entire city so I think the trick is to figure out what are the core elements that you'd like to see in Berlin East and west and then maybe to identify a a couple of non-core that are out there in some of the neighborhoods so in terms of some of the usual suspects in. You're looking at things like checkpoint Charlie in the Checkpoint Charlie Museum which definitely definitely a although it is touristy at something that we often recommend to people particularly on those days that are not good weather days at the museum. Actual checkpoint appoint Charlotte's it's rather touristy and people are posing for photos but the museum is actually it's a private initiative and it has all sorts of stories and photos of life rush when the wall was up as well as stories of escape. And it's quite well done. Well let's dig into that a little more so checkpoint Charlie one of the famous checkpoints between East in West Berlin. There's the little guardhouse there which is a reconstruction because they tore down the guardhouse ray quickly after they down the wall and then realized Oh hey we we have this wonderful memorable spot so they. They built it back up again but the checkpoint Charlie Museum was there during the time of the wall all and it started as a private collection of memorabilia about escapes predominantly from Berlin and. I think it's a fascinating museum Ziam. Although I would have to say the last time I was there. It had a feel of grandma's attic in terms of organization. I don't know if that has changed. Excel Excel J. One of the most amazing wonderful collections. So hazardously arranged but you can see where someone took a surfboard. Gordon holiday it out so they could put people inside or cars with secret. Compartments were people who made balloons to fly over the wall. It's a fascinating collection especially in terms of Cold War. History doesn't Nice job of addressing cold order history from the stamp on Berlin that it also digs into some of the Cold War history elsewhere so with over revolution in Prague so the rising Hungary so it provides a broader context. Not just what happened here in Berlin which I think is really really
Pete Buttigieg says he's "got a lot more work to do" to earn the trust of black voters
"Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buddha jets says he has a lot more work to do to earn the trust of black voters as a newcomer on the national stage the mayor of south bend Indiana spoke about how he plans to win their votes on CBS this morning what were reaching out to African American voters in particular in the south where what we're seeing is there's no more negative view of me but a lot more folks say they don't know me to begin with how do you think you got this position to begin with what what what what I'm finding is a lot of voters in particular black voters I talked to feel like they have not only been often abused by the Republican Party but sometimes taken for granted by the Democratic Party and that means when you show up in your new on the scene as opposed to having had years or even decades in Washington you got a lot more work to do to earn that trust when you talk in particular to African American women who have been the backbone of the party in so many ways really propelled a lot of our most important three bloated a key voting critical and a lot of skepticism of the new person showing up but I welcome that challenge because it's critically important not only to to to win but to deserve to win so when you when you talk to those black voters and I think you're a two percent right now in South Carolina see when you have those conversations to get that to percent up to twenty percent and beyond what can you say in your record what can you point to to say look I've helped the lives of black Americans what what I point to is the things that we've done in our community that line up with the things I'm proposing we do as a country so for example we got a lot of challenges around housing right now as a country we've got family nine generationally into certain neighborhoods once those neighborhoods become desirable they get gentrified right back out of them in south bend I directed resources to low income and mainly minority neighborhoods to improve the quality of life there when we look at the the national picture for after Americans we see wealth gap and an income gap we need economic empowerment at home we work to make sure that we reduce unemployment reduce poverty and had a lot to show for it so part of it's about my record part of it's about my plans but what I'm finding is a lot of times when I'm speaking to voters before they wanna hear anything about your plans there were no what's in your heart and so the biggest thing I have to convey is how my make up my B. and my faith teaches me my responsibility to make sure that on lifting up those who have so often been excluded in our society and our politics many of your democratic rivals are not taking the dollar donations why have you not adopted the same policy we are getting ready for the fight of our lives we're going up against Donald Trump and his allies who I believe raised a hundred and twenty five million dollars just in the last quarter in order to stay in power if somebody wants to contribute to my campaign to support us in taking on Donald Trump then we're going to need to bring everything we've got to that fight I have seven hundred thousand donors I believe the average donation to my campaign is thirty two dollars and I'm proud to release the name of your big bottlers when do you intend to do that so we've already done it I think for the first and second quarter there putting together the information for the third quarter and remember every single contribution my campaign is made public the person who made it now what they do for a living and this is about making sure that we are ready to compete but I only I make exactly one promise to anybody who makes a donation to the campaign whether they come to an event to see me speak or whether they go to teach for America dot com and send in five Bucks and the promises this I'm going to take that contribution and use it to defeat Donald
Russia's undaunted voice of dissent
"The Russian activists Alexei Navalny has been a thorn in the side of President Vladimir Putin for a decade now. He's brave persecution. He's been imprisoned and yet he seems don't Klis correspondent Max. Seddon met him for lunch in a food court in Moscow recently league. Max is on the line now with me to discuss his impressions but first I'd like to open with a clip from the meeting. which gives a flavour of the character of the man? Another big Mac this my Russians rather rudimentary. What what he's saying here so we were wandering around the food court where he took me for lunch which is just across the street from his office in slightly out out of the way but rapidly gentrifying art a southeastern Moscow and this is the sort of place that even if it didn't exist in Russia they've had food around the world from your burgers ears Pasta Sushi to dahgestani dumplings and who's back Pilaf and other things and saying is a place like this that shows you in his mind that Russia As a whole could the really made it economically if it weren't for Putin and he described nisus glass ceiling that's more like a hideous moldy Soviet ceiling the Stop Russia from economically developing. Stick Landy Patillo. Then is a mere ski navy of the numbers suggest that he thinks that despite the huge spike in wealth in the first two years of Putin's rule which was mostly due to rising oil prices. He views the last two decades lost decades because he Says that so much has been stolen. That could have gone towards economic development and there are so many repressive rules and regulations that are holding it back. You've covered Russia for quite a while. Now these are quite strong and outspoken. Remarks how rat is it for a Russian activist to speak out like this. How brave is it to speak out like this I? I interviewed Navan nebout seven years ago in the thing. That is really remarkable about him when you speak to him as I've done many times sense. Sense is just how much breath of fresh air he is. Compared to your official Russian politicians who come from the Soviet bureaucratic addict tradition. They are very bad at talking to normal people in on manage settings you almost never see them give interviews to the independent media where they might says difficult questions. The volney grew up completely outside the system. He someone who was formed by the Internet and by the street and even compared to other people in the opposition and he's a very charismatic person. And this is what is really set them apart even amongst all the pressure that he faces to become the undisputed most popular challenger the Putin in the last few years ears. You say you've known him for a while you've covered rushing for awhile. Tell us how he entered politics. I mean what made him take on this role not only art Ukrainian on his father's side and he has relatives who live near Chernobyl outside Kiev in Ukraine for the first ten years his life up until the blast itself itself in Nineteen eighty-six. He will go and stay with his grandmother. Who lived in this village right near the nuclear power station and the aftermath of fat that we know so well the incompetent Soviet attempts to cover that were very big part of what shaped him because he doesn't have any of this nostalgia for the Soviet Union that Putin has been very big on a lot of people older than the volume has just forty three share? He was very much convinced by this early childhood experience that the system was wrong in the future. Russia's move away from it as far as possible more towards a European liberal democracy as he sees it the other thing. He told me that really shaped him was when he was already in his late twenties he he was working pro. Bono was a lawyer for an opposition party but it was official opposition party in Russia. There are the official parties. who were there to create a semblance of a real political system? They're really they facto controlled by the Kremlin the end. The parties themselves are run like Chiefdoms. Just like Putin's own party and the leaders are these many Putin's and he was working on Moscow City Council elections thousand five and ran against Russia's incredibly corrupt court system. Any said gradually just made him so furious that he became even activist. It's quite a story. I mean you say. He's not nostalgic for the Soviet Union. Interestingly he is though it seems something of a Russian nationalist. Can you talk us through who they send what influence it has on him. And how nationalist is he. Welna volley was actually kicked out of the Liberal Party that he was a member of in two thousand seven for his nationalist nationalist views. Of the sort that you would never hear discussed in polite company among liberals in Moscow and the US the express were very different from from the nationalism that you might think of associated with Putin which is more of the Soviet imperial stout in the Valdez was much more. Russian ethnic Chauvinism Virjee into race says. I'm against people. From the periphery of the Soviet Empire. So the caucasus-chechen Augustan and places in Central Asia Pakistan Cure Augustan Tajikistan stamp who provide millions of laborers who come and do construction jobs. And other things like that in Moscow the center of the Empire and he filmed in some pretty startling videos including one which showed him comparing people from the Caucasus. The cockroaches and mocking shooting them with a gun. He spent several years organizing organizing this annual nationals rally which was attended by all sorts of Neo Nazis and skinheads as well as other people at one of these rallies he used an anti Semitic blood libel trope to talk about Jewish guards. Did you talk about this of your lunch. Does he apologize for any of this. We did. This is something that the money is criticized for quite a lot even though no it's not really very big part of this program anymore. E only really says he wants if these regime for guests laborers from Central Asia but he has no regrets his explanation was that in two two thousand seven. There was this enormous gap between living standards in Russia's back Stan and millions of people were coming from Central Asia to work in Russia and it was a big political issue so the message disorder by rhetoric was a way of trying to get people interested. Max The interview you did with Nevada was for a weekly lunch with the F. T. Slot which normally unfolds in fanny a predictable lines could a swanky restaurant. Just two people the F. T. journalists and the interviewee this was rather different. You joined by someone feel interview view. Can you tell us about this weirdly enough. This is my third lunch with the F. T. that I've done in every single time I've been joined by someone who I don't expect to be there. And this time we were followed by the troll who apparently works for one of the fake news farms run by a Guinea per goes in the Kremlin caterer who runs the infamous Saint Petersburg troll factory. So you walked out of the office building. This guy yelled Alexei. Can you tell us where do you buy your okay involved. He told him to get lost. And the guy follow this rounds we wandered around the food court court and then when we bought our food then sat at the table across from us and watched us through the entirety. The two hour interview and you know all the said for the last six nine months or so ever since his foundation started investigating promotions catering contracts needs people who've been following him and his family around everywhere they go was he listening to you or oh just sitting there to be kind of threatening ish. It was more intimidation. I mean this was someone who was twenty five at most maybe younger and it's not being paid a lot of money to do this but the point is clearly just to harass him the entire time. He is trying to laugh about it he said. It's a good way the practice Zen but he came pretty close snapping a few times and it was obviously of your family's being harassed like that. He's accused promotion of being behind a physical assault assault with arm bar on husband one of his top aides. I mean the impression you get from this story and from other accounts in the valleys life is is that the pressure he faces is utterly relentless and he's been facing this for a long time how does he keep going one of the questions. I've asked many many times over the years. He always finds himself. Trying to explain is your. Why aren't you in jail? Why aren't you dead? And the answer is best as anyone until seem speed. The he's almost almost become too big to jail because when they tried to do it in twenty thirteen he was sentenced to
Just how beneficial are 'Opportunity Zones' to residents in low-income areas?
"As a government policy the idea of these opportunities owns has been around for decades low income areas get special tax incentives to encourage investment presidential candidate and senator Cory Booker has been a big proponent of opportunities owns as a way to inject capital an ailing cities like Newark New Jersey which is got millions of dollars in private investment under the policy we know that kids growing up in low income areas actually will make less money than their peers growing up in areas that have more economic investment and so when I was a mayor of one of America's poorest census tracts was mayor of Newark New Jersey one of my major goals every day was how can I get capital invested in my communities to create economic opportunity roughly twelve percent of census tracks around the country are being re classified as opportunity tones including almost all of Porter Rico conocer questioning just how beneficial these tax breaks will be to residents of low income areas and new reporting has emerged showing how this program has already been manipulated to further benefits the ultra wealthy for more on this I spoke with Justin Elliott a reporter at pro publica and Samantha Jacoby a senior tax legal analyst with the center on budget and policy priorities and I started by asking Justin to explain just what an opportunity zone is so this is a program that was created by president trump's tax law that was passed back in in twenty seventeen and the basic idea is to give series of tax breaks to people who make investments in poor areas around the country the goal is to incentivize new investment in the areas that need it most and there's an interesting history to these ritual get into in just a moment but let's let's focus on some of the latest news we just saw senator Cory Booker representative Emmanuel cleaver and representative Ron behind sent a letter to the treasury inspector general that would investigate the potential political influence on how these zones are selected what exactly are they talking about basically they're they're talking about the process by which the areas that are eligible for this tax break were selected so my colleague and I ProPublica and also other reporters at The New York Times have written a series of stories about how several very politically connected billionaires have to use their influence to get areas where they owned real estate made into these opportunities owns thereby qualifying them for this very lucrative tax break and doing it in ways that are potentially not really aligned with the original policy goals of the program the idea of using tax breaks to revitalize low income areas has been around for awhile where did it originate and how is the sort of legislation that we're seeing now different from its original intent as he said there there's sort of a long history of what's commonly called a place based tax incentives and and the idea is by encouraging investment in areas that are historically distressed where residents might have faced a systemic discrimination or lack of opportunity by encouraging investment in those places you might create widespread economic benefits new jobs things like that your examples of those going back to early nineties are things called enterprise zones new markets tax credits the difference here I think is that the opportunities on tax break is really centered around capital gains which primarily float to the top one percent of people so by definition these are gonna directly benefit wealthy investors and may or may not have benefits for low income residents of opportunities up before they they were rebranded opportunities owns and before the trump administration has created this new version of an opportunity zone did these ever work in the past did these enterprise improvement areas are business improvement districts or whatever we want to call them have they worked in the past Samantha I think there's Serena and mixed results the there's been criticisms of of these types of policies that they could be easier feeling gentrification and displacement of low income communities in these areas maybe they have some affect on job creation but it's not clear whether those jobs that are created are filled by residents of the is a low income areas or whether the jobs go to people from outside the areas so I talk a little bit about who's benefiting more but Justin we just talked about the news here that there are representatives who are who are concerned about how how these loans are being selected but wasn't Cory Booker a big supporter of the opportunities on program yeah absolutely it is a program that is very much had bipartisan support and actually existed as a standalone bill before it got put into the trump tax law Booker has definitely championed the idea I ELT sometimes refers to these areas as domestic emerging markets because that is the term uses and the idea of a in its current form anyways you can trace this back to Sean Parker whose Silicon Valley billionaire early Facebook investor who actually created a think tank in Washington DC to push this idea which it was ultimately successful so Samantha let's talk a little bit about how it works here is we are we're talking about things like capital gains and probably most folks like myself will not ever come near a capital gains so if I'm a wealthy investor and I'm looking at an opportunity stone what's going to drive me to what either create a business there or build a an apartment building there what what type of investment are these opportunities owns trying to attract and what's the benefit to people who are who have all this money to go there and and invest so just for a little background capital gains come from increases in value of expensive assets like stock or real estate typically only wealthy people have those and you know it's also important to know that capital gains aren't aren't really tax like other types of income like wages are salaries they're not taxed every year investors can actually avoid paying capital gains taxes by just holding on to their assets for over time and that itself is a big benefit and then when they actually are taxed at taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income but what this incentive actually says is Hey you know even if you sell your assets we'll give you extra tax benefits if you put that gain into an opportunity is on so the first thing is you you don't have to pay that tax that you would otherwise until twenty twenty six as long as you hold on to that investment and the opportunities on for a certain number of years and even then when you eventually do pay that tax you get a fifteen percent cut then the really big benefit comes later so all gain on your new opportunities on investment can be completely tax free as long as the investor hold on to it for at least ten years so what that does is that could create a really big benefit but particularly for projects that have the highest value for investors so just as an easy example an investor might get a much more generous tax break for say the high end real estate as opposed to investing in an affordable housing project Justin you have reported on a few places where these so called opportunities owns have really done what Samantha's laying out here which is benefited the extremely wealthy who have invested here one of the people we're talking about is a man named Dan Gilbert in Detroit who is he and how did he benefit from this opportunity zone Dan Gilbert is the billionaire founder of quicken loans the mortgage company he also owns the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team in the last several years he's gone on a buying spree in downtown Detroit as some several billion dollars into buying up actually most of downtown Detroit my colleague and I did a story looking at how all these areas in downtown Detroit where Gilbert owns most of the buildings have been named opportunities out it's a one one of the themes that emerge from this was that Gilbert has a number of already planned developments including you know luxury residential developments skyscraper office towers and those are now in opportunities and so what we're looking at is him getting potentially getting tax breaks for projects that he was going to do anyway when the entire point of the program was to incentivize new investment downtown has actually been gentrifying in part because of Gilbert's previous investments in the last several years and in fact these areas of downtown when you look at the data are are much wealthier than the rest of the city but those are the areas the wealthier areas that got named opportunities on's where Gilbert RD owns a you know again billions of dollars worth of real estate and part of the reason they were named opportunities owns is that Dan Gilbert's lobbyist got involved at both the state and federal levels and so there we go with that brings us full circle back to the question about who is influencing who in choosing these opportunities sounds and whether or not they're being chosen because of political motives is that not right that's right so the way that the law was written that there's an enormous amount of autonomy given to the governor of each state so basically the federal government was in charge of deciding which areas around the country were eligible to be named opportunities owns and then that list went to each governor who got to pick a quarter of those as the opportunities and so we see in the in in multiple cases including Detroit where there were you know influential local businessman who lobbied the state and you know in the end the areas were where they already on property were named opportunities so that that's that's what happened to tried and then there's been other reporting about the lobbying having at the federal level and on the eligibility front Samantha were these opportunities owns necessary how are these created and and essentially inserted into the tax law so as anything just mentioned previously opportunities own legislation was originally introduced in twenty seventeen and and the early part of twenty seventeen with bipartisan support but then nothing really happened was that until the end of the year when policy makers were considering big twenty seventeen year end tax legislation that legislation was passed with an extremely rush process you would typically expect with legislation like this to see you know months long public hearings broad expert input on on all sides of the different issues similar to what happened and in nineteen eighty six when there was a major tax reform effort that took years to it to to pass where is this was kind of rushed through in just a couple of months and opportunities owns were sort of slipped into it without a lot of attention being paid to it and and I think kind of as a result of that there are a lot of holes that the treasury department had tend to fill through implementing regulations which actually gave treasury a lot of power to make important decisions about who can actually benefit what types of investment can qualify and you know what they could have done was add significant public protections to it to make sure that investments have public

just GonNa make camp tonight so Michelle Goes Carol says I know what you're going through with Carol obvious the beach asked are we talking about here it is she walks well it's weird because two weeks ago there was asking her to stay and she was asking her and she'd stay maybe for a lot of no I see clearly can't take being there and living under this and you know this woman that killed her her son do your first place right and he's like she's not even asleep and she taking you know taking these pills or whatever in the woods I'll buy sell carols checking her gun to make sure it's loaded is on

pills okay like we knew we we knew up but it's Carol you know what I'm saying like sure she brought a gun to swap me but is that really bad and I guess for me I thought she really it did initially see

Homelessness in one of the world's most powerful cities
"For a beach bum from Newcastle like North America correspondence Khanna Duffy, Washington's long winters are a chilling reality. But they can also mean life and death. It may be the most powerful city on earth. But within a few blocks of the White House. There is a crisis of homelessness at least seven thousand people have to bear that Washington winter without heating Khanna hit the streets to find out. More owes walking to work this morning in windstorm head down being blown around with my eyes full of grit from the streets. It's been a long winter with pole vortex and a steady stream of bad weather. If it was bugging me. How was seventy year old Warren, a cheerful homeless African American Deysi, local, I see outside the coffee stool holding up or being out here in one of those pretty hard because you have to wrestle with the elements. Sometimes it's Bourboule sometimes it's almost intolerable. So one of those really bad here a few weeks ago, we had the poll of Tex even how how did you cope with that? That was really cold. Well, I had to go through a lot of suffering out here in the col- stay as long as I can. And when I feel like I'm hype getting hypothermic or gross do frostbitten, and I have to leave, and that's how dealt with that way. Did you go roll? I went to a shelter for one night for a couple of hours that was pretty hard because shelters here not sufficient for living is inhumane of the people that initial inhumane, and they do a lot of crazy things that you really don't want to be around. So I try to void that as much as possible people with mental illness and addictions and stuff in addiction, mental illness, a lot of self despair, a lot of anger, so. Those things spill out on other people. And if you don't want to become a fraud that Govett, then you have to just try to bear around as much as you can in a rapidly gentrifying CD homelessness is a big local political issue. Warren became homeless in his sixties. The retied cook was lift bankrupt after an emergency hospital trip. His wife did not survive an-and unsheduled, he proclaimed himself. He didn't have insurance and things spiraled out of control in America. The safety net is full of holes that in an every day. Mishaps everyday misfortune. You know, you never know when it's going to knock on your door. And that's why notably optimistic rather than pessimistic because you're here one day, and you're living in a normal part of society and the next you find yourself in adverse situation, which caused you to change your thinking. And how it's changed. My thinking is I met a lot of people here that are homes I've never been homeless. And now, I see them from a different mindset before it's not lazy bumped you get a job. You know, why can't they do this? But life is not always that way. Warren's nine luckily, he's enthusiasm and blessings for the papal that poss- by him on what he calls his shift on straight. It's an attitude. He's kept up all through winter. And it makes me a little embarrassed. At my grumblings about the cold. The conditions are on the street are. Actually what you make of it. Probably like everything else in lot. Yeah. Yeah. Well, if you don't put anything in no deposit, no withdrawal. So you have to deposit. Something mind is the better part of my nature that I can rent it to the public looking for the better part of their everyone has shortcomings, and so I don't allow myself to become despondent. You know, because there's no one's fault situations occur, you know, and hopefully interchange DC's men Muriel bowser has a plan to in timelessness, but even a casual visitor to the CD wound notice the tainting Kant's. There's so many people sleeping rough. They stiff competition for the best corners for panhandling. And they divided up into blocks of time during the day. Warren noise, it'll be tough to break the cycle, but he's staying positive and at the very least another winter is close to ending will. There's not enough services as far as getting off the streets concern there available, but it takes on a receive it and tell a lot of people just give up in despair before they have a getting I feel like that sometimes, but I try to fight it and just bear it out eventually being optimistic. Something is gonna change and hopefully foot hopefully for the better because you always same in pretty good spirits when say in the morning. Well, that's something. I have to continue to teach myself. You know, it's not just about individually an individual this about a community. And so if I'm not in good spirits and helping aiding the community, then the community doesn't assists me, and that's not productive. And Warren my hands are getting really cold just holding the microphone out. He so you must be pretty Cain for it to warm up and spring to come as well. Oh care. Wait. I can imagine Kona Duffy they reporting from very chilly, Washington DC.
Muslims Are Having A Hollywood Moment
"Is changing on American television and online streaming services. There are more Muslim characters and more nuanced portrayals of Muslim communities NPR's Leila Fadel starts to story on set in Los Angeles. It's one of the last days of taping for a new web series called east of LA brea, all ROY. It's a show about being your twenties and figuring out life, and it's told through two main characters roommates who are Muslim, but that's not the entirety of their storylines says Samir Gardezi, the creator of the show it's about paying rent. You know, having a dead end job. I'm having issues with you know, your your family life going to families the first project from powder cake, the company founded by director writer and actor Paul fig known for films like bridesmaids and the recent Ghostbusters east of LA brea follows the friendship of two women a black Muslim and Bangladeshi American will slump in gentrifying, Los Angeles Gardezi says, it's one American Muslim story. There's so many different versions, and my hope would be that everyone gets a shot that tell their version of a Muslim Americans story. So it doesn't feel like, oh, this is the one show that needs to make it all the way. We had to the next location for taping an LA mosque the scene deals with racism black Muslims, sometimes face within Muslim communities. The character. I show Hudson played by Geoffrey Maya is praying when her phone starts ringing with a song like this guy. You gain the director tells the other actors how to react and ladies look at her little shady in the next scene. A woman skull Tessin, assuming she's a recent convert and tells her her prayer doesn't count. We have lessons every Thursday one in conflict with it's something that happens an immigrant Muslim, assuming she knows better. And it's one way the show explores identity, and he's still brea creator Samir Gardezi says he's glad there are more projects involving Muslims. But he says there isn't going to be one breakout moment, but hopefully, there will be many moments and the more stuff that's out there, even the bad stuff. The better. That's that is the flexibility and the privilege that I think white communities is that they're allowed to fail and Hollywood and no one really bad tonight. It's like, okay. It's okay. You can you can jump back up and here let's throw millions of dollars again for you to do your next project. So that's the point that we have to get to. It's a struggle a lot of communities of color and minorities face in Hollywood, the two thousand eighteen Hollywood diversity report from UCLA found that despite progress minorities are still under a presented in key jobs from lead actors to director. Two writers right now, there's an appetite for shows about Muslims in parts because Muslim writers like our daisy who's written on modern family and outsourced are creating their own content and their support for it. He got a grant from pop culture collaborative to create the series and some of the interest is Hollywood reacting to anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment from Donald Trump after he announced his candidacy in two thousand fifteen the Hollywood bureau of the Muslim public Affairs Council got a lot more popular the phones were ringing off the hook that sue Abadie. She leaves the bureau and consults with studios and production companies on creating more authentic Muslim characters were up against decades of storytelling. That is inaccurate many times that is racist often and very stereotypical among the tropes women are chattel and don't have identities or Muslims only portrayed as the gas station owner or the taxi driver Obeidi says, it's an uphill battle. But today the list of characters on mainstream television. In is longer than she's ever seen a Muslim third on Grey's anatomy, a superhero on DC legends of tomorrow, a LGBTQ hijab e Muslim on on the bowl type a pork loving alcohol. Drinking Muslim on master of none. When writers come to her for advice. Obeidi reminds them that these Muslim characters might be the only Muslim some people ever meet. She tries to help them. Get the language, right? Like scripts that used the term alot Akhbar, which means God is great. So you've seen many TV and film projects that have LA walkabout being used in very violent scenes how baiting a Goshi it's studios to try to get them to change it translated or offset it with happy scenes like saying God is great at a wedding or a dinner party because for Muslims. It's a beautiful phrase portrayed as ugly. You know? So someone Sears hook bud when they're dining out. And all of a sudden, you know, they're calling nine one one because they think of family is doing. Something bad. When all they're saying is God that was a damn good meal hawk bud. And I've eighties excited by many of the projects now being written by and about Muslims for large audiences. There's soons eight a Palestinian American comic with cerebral palsy writing an autobiographical sitcom for ABC Moammar a comic with the recent Netflix special and Rami Yousef who I met on a night. He's headlining at the Hollywood, improv. He jokes about how in L A's. Suddenly people think Islam is cool juice shot of getting some juices ten song. It's woman I'm telling her about Ramadan. And you know, she works in my God that sounds so I wanted to do with this weekend. She said Coachella. The New Jersey native is following in the path of many comics who've gone from stand up to sitcom like Seinfeld. Rami Yousef is writing ten episodes of show cult Rami for Hulu it will reflect who use of is in gypsy in American a practicing Muslim who like most people wrestles with trying to be good after a stand up performance. He jokes about how he and his friends approach religion a little like a menu. We call it a LA carte where we're all kind of just picking and choosing like wool. This is my deal with God helps Rami reflects how all kinds of people have their deal with God. I like to get dark. I like to get weird. I like to get uncomfortable. And I feel like when an immigrant family, or when a family that is maybe, you know, group that's not well represented when people try and put them on television. They go out of their way to make them. Look amazing and look perfect his show do that. I just was really excited about the idea of making Muslims. Look imperfect and not create something that was like some PR thing, but create something that was you know, really just a realistic portrayal of what we go through. How we are. He says that people connect with others when they see their flaws not when their hero of villain or exactly like everyone else

Two we think about, political correctness have we reached I mean to, me this is like the zenith of political correctness gone wild like you can't get any more politically correct than this when a university, says to a professor that talking Bad, about white people, when, you're. White person yourself is considered. Racism that we've reached a new level of like insanity in, this country if this like. This guy really? Gets into trouble over, this one eight hundred two eight three one, one five number I hope I explain the story while because it's it's it's nutso like what's happening in this guy I do think you should be in trouble for this. Number one. I can't believe I find it very difficult to believe that even the most bleeding heart liberal listening. Right now with agree, that he should get in trouble for this but maybe I'm wrong maybe I'll be surprised. And number two give me some examples what do you think we've, reached the end, of, the road, on, his political. Correctness stuff we can't we can't talk bad about your own people who can talk bad about anymore Yeah it's like. The old it's, like almost like the.

Good, evening or New Jersey one oh one, point, five Yes hi. Mary I do not feel I just say that I believe that there's only one rate, and our world and that is. The. Human. Race agreed sure I going to say that the other thing I think is important in the problems here is that the professor chose to say what he said out, of social media and I think that is the problem. Is social media you can say what you want with your. Friends, and But when you start putting things of social. Media and you, are, a professor represents a university I do believe the. University then has the right to say that this is not acceptable behavior. Any employer sure any employer. Has a right to say that you. Start posting stuff, on social, media you're putting, yourself, at risk. Right. And you're right that's that's a. Fair point everyone works at the at the pleasure of their boss and so we start posting on social media he has. Your oh you're definitely opening, yourself up to something.

And then it was like closing time almost and she was smoking outside and I didn't smoke, but I borrowed a cigarette from a friend and went outside, and it was like, can never lied. And then her like Butch friend lit my cigarette, which was so infuriating because to bitches don't make a right. Just kidding. That's so basic and probably in the future future. All the bushes may. All the rights, but I wanted, but we want to someone who was on the fem sign. Yeah. Well, I wanted to hear yourself, Butch, I mean, butcher than them for sure. I don't consider myself like this is the thing. We only have such a limited amount of words, you know, and like Bush.

I think that's off to fam-. Yeah, soft. Butch, no, like fem is like feminine and then adding Asya Fink, your feminine really like, yes, I don't think you're super feminine. Because I would say soft, Butch because it's on the Butch, oh, but keep on describing this off. I could be a leading lady in a major movie. I think you could soft fem. Yes, offense. Gentrifying for lesbians. I get gays. Tweak again, all those. I mean, I don't understand either. It's all weird word and weird terminology terminology and people are so complex and like like it is it's strange to like, I used to always be like, I'm a tomboy that felt like a weird like cat or something like that. Never felt really like me. I'm just me tumbler is such a word. Tumbling come from. I don't very strange word. I think it actually may be was designed to make girls not want to be it because it's like you can't be a girl that plays sport. You can't be like forty girl. You turn into a tumble. Yet I, I get so upset that we label kids, so you wanna throw a ball girl. Okay. Well, you're trans yet, which is fine. It's just, I think I'm so happy. You were just saying that we label kids. So early early, you like happy that we are hopefully ESP. I mean, I guess in the cities that we've lived in, but like hopefully the trend is moving towards like just being who you want to be. I think future future, I think that like we've had to put these labels on things like we've had to be like gay and straight, and I touch on it and the special in the lineup on net flicks. But like the idea of sexual fluidity. I think it's like it seems so crazy to people where it's like a whole right. Everything's flew in, but it's like, no, it's just is what it is. It's like everyone does have a certain amount in their nature that would predispose them to be drawn to certain types of people. Sometimes those types of people, those qualities are women. Sometimes they're men. I think that when there's not as much of a hurdle like when I was eighteen and I was like, oh my God. Well, when I allege Byan like having to go through all that. Before kissing a girl when we like let go of all that. We're actually a lot more fluid even for me in terms of like men. I think that I had to sort of be like, I'm a, I'm a lesbian not had to, but like I feel like I'm not explaining it as good as I do in the special, but basically that that's good because if people will have to head over to net flix Netflix dot com, Netflix dot com use log in or.
