Guthrie who has considerable experience in water also announcing his bid for mayor for the city of greeley. What's the bottom of all this. What's why all the consternation When it seems as though our elected officials are doing what they're elected to do. It's nobody's best interests. I mean greeley has award winning water and those who are currently in leadership in the city of greeley it certainly would be in their best interest to Ruin the water isn't it. I don't i understand what's what's behind it. What pushes it. Because greeley's got water rights we're going to continue to use that are high water water from the streams and there's worse than we presently use that we're going to use that to the maximum amount. There ranch will come in and as something that will be later in the in the process. Part of drought and part of the just operating system and grease water water plant and so forth. We're still all going to be there for us. All of those and we're gonna continue to buy other water rights. We have to be able to page the picture of go.

The Indigenous Practice of Controlled Burning to Prevent Wildfires

"Four out of five of the largest wildfires ever recorded in California have occurred this year five, million acres of land have burned on the west coast. As officials look for solutions they're turning more and more to the native Americans who have long been forced out of tending to the land they once stewarded. So successfully, specifically officials have begun working more with tribal leaders on prescribed burning knowing when and. Where to intentionally burned parts of the forest in a manageable way to prevent out of control wildfires in the future quoting the New York Times long before California was California native Americans used fire to keep the land where they lived healthy that meant intentionally burning excess vegetation at regular intervals during times of the year when the weather would keep blazes smaller in cooler than the destructive wildfires burning today. The work requires a deep understanding of how wins would spread flames down a particular hillside or win lighting a fire in a forest would foster the growth of certain plants and that knowledge has been passed down through ceremony in practice. But until recently, it has mostly been dismissed as unscientific and quotes. Various organizations run by native American, communities have worked with other conservancy nonprofits and private landowners over the years to help them repair forested areas and make them more sustainable and in some parts of the southeastern United States prescribed fire has already been in practice officially by state governments for several decades. But on the West Coast, the practice has long been suppressed quoting again over the course of California's long colonial history native Californians were violently systematically systematically stripped of the ability to tend the land they had lived on for centuries as white settlers pursued gold, timber, and territory. This, dark history unfolded while modern firefighting agencies and techniques were formed under the heavy influence of Europeans who wanted to maximize timber halls said, Mary Huffman director of the indigenous. Peoples Burning Network the Nineteen Twenty article written by William B. Greeley in the Timmerman dismisses light burning as practiced by quote the Indians in various Western pine forests long before the advent of the white man end quote as fallacy propaganda that if he did would lead to the destruction of lucrative trees bill trip director of natural resources in environmental policy for the Kuru. Tribe Department of Natural, resources wrote in a piece for the Guardian the crew people were shot for burning as recently as the nineteen thirties. The idea of prescribed burning remained polarizing for decades as federal and state firefighting agencies were built up around the idea that wildfire was an enemy to be defeated using military-style tactics not a tool that could help prevent destruction and quotes. Now the US Forest Service and the State of California will be working intentionally with tribal leaders on prevention tactics including prescribed fire. It's a step in the right direction, but like everything will come with complications not only have the centuries of suppression built a deep mistrust, but the land itself has changed and new tactics accounting for climate change will need to be teased out while it's definitely a net positive Belinda Brown, a member of the Cosa Band of the Jima way ought to gain nation and travel partnerships director for the low Mukasey Restoration Project said quote we're getting that I told you so hard.

Mean that's encouraging in and of itself speaking with Greeley Mayor John Gates of course, a great friend of the show Mayor Fourth of July weekend I. Know that there is a lot of nerves about people getting out and about. But it seems like according to everything that I've heard people I've talked to that. People handled the fourth of July weekend in Greeley and the surrounding areas pretty responsibly. It sure seems like they no indication otherwise. which commenting to a friend short time ago that I hope folks are out of fireworks. It was quite hectic year for the big loud blasts and we did. Make it through in Greeley to my knowledge at least without an injuries or property damage, you always are concerned about those with with the heavier duty fireworks, but All all went well in in our city over the weekend. You've been you've been a part of Greeley for some time now mayor did have you ever had a fourth of July weekend, or even like two or three weeks leading up to it where you? You heard so many fireworks? No I I. This is the worst year I've seen in. Folks are enjoying themselves. I understand that and. The police were running ragged, trying to keep up with the calls cause. As, much as fireworks or celebration of independence, they can be annoying when they go off the all hours of the day and night. But this. This certainly was a unique. weekend fortunately for those in Greeley. The greatest country. Club had a great professional display in the greatest stampede had a great professional sports, so that gave our folks opportunities to see professional displays from afar where they didn't have to get up close and personal with people, so, but it is A. Unique. Times to say the way standard well, mayor we, Sir to hopefully had out of those unique times at least start to trudge forward. What's next? What are some of the biggest obstacles facing the city of Greeley? Well I think the biggest obstacle that we continue to face this trying to get our hands around. Budgetary impacts of Kobe. It's significant, but to this point not quite as significance would plan you know most most municipalities in school districts for that matter had to cut millions of dollars from their budget and we did as well. But are some of our sales. Tax Revenues would indicate. and are watching texts.

Interview With Mayor John Gates On Partial Reopening

"Com by really mayor John Gates Mayor Gates welcome back to the show. Good to be with you good morning to you. I certainly appreciate your taking the time and there's a lot going on. As Greeley of course, as other cities across the state, indeed across the nation, enjoying a return to some semblance of normalcy. Tell us what that looks like. Well you're right. There is some sense normalcy the fact that where we get the restaurants back open. At least to an extent, you know pretty pretty well, said all along that the two entities that have really suffered from the Kobe closures are restaurants and churches. And the church is still are suffering, unfortunately, due to the fifty person rule, but My wife and I've been out several times since we've been able to sit down and Dine I. Guess It's the small things you appreciate because that surely has been nice. It's kind of fascinating when you think about it because we were talking about this just last week, the fact that going out to a restaurant is like. Taking a world cruise or taking a trip to the moon. Again it is a return to the small things that makes such a difference in in our lives. If there's any good, take away from all this. Maybe that's that. Makes, you appreciate the small things never did. I think I would miss. so much being able to go, sit down, have a cup of coffee with somebody or better yet a meal and while we certainly a lot of carry out. It's not the same as going to sit in a restaurant and catching up on the day and getting warm food versus the. Wolf lukewarm food when the carry out outcome, so that's where they've been great and. I were phone boxes here. Exactly, the Styrofoam box and we're starting to get things open back up the city to the degree that we can which is good. There's a slow rollout occurring today with our fixed up transit buses We're opening municipal court backup today. we've got some Other departments opening drive through or by appointment only so slowly, but surely not quite yet on the cool. The REC centers part of the problem with the pool. and. Even the REC centers is that we've got that fifty person maximum. And we talked a great wink at our city council meeting last night about specifically centennial pool and the to dilemmas. We have one is that we saw that is that at the beginning of this laid off all her stuff seasonal swig. We can obviously get some of them back. To run the pool, but our parks and REC. Director colors that we get. During Summer Day especially these that have been so warm three to four hundred kids centennial pool every day, so if we can only it fifty. That's problematic so while I understand the reason for that in an area that says large as as much square footage of centennial pool. I hope the governor loosens that fairly soon to allow us to adapt at number to a more appropriate number which folks we might be having using them so. Now. We're looking forward to. If I'm not mistaken here under this amended safer at home order, a swimming pools again allowed to reopen. Once those draft guidelines are improved. Final draft of those guidelines will be available on Thursday. Is that what you're hearing is absolutely what I'm hearing. Yeah, so. we're. We're kind of sitting at the ready waiting for some of those. Things to happen I've been A number of local pastors have reached out to me and we feel for them from the standpoint that I spoke to a pastor yesterday. WHO said you know I have eight hundred people in my congregation and I can easily socially distance and keep everybody safe by allowing four hundred in, but the current rules only allow fifty, so they're looking at some things like outside and. And they're really getting the short end right now at a time when people may be more than ever need to services of their church and their pastor, so we're. We're getting there. probably not as quite as quickly as I'd like. We are starting to make some open or Kobe. Numbers really leveled out that we're really happy about that. And what about Jay BS? Swift the meat processing plant in Greeley. What are you hearing about that up? Not very much they're not, they're not yet at full capacity of I'm hearing they've not had any deaths and knock on wood in a couple of weeks. I don't know to what degree they have employs out sick, but. It was certainly tragic. Losing the workers they did and I hope everybody's. Certainly getting better and have not heard anything to the contrary. Now back to restaurants, and again we've talked about this to a great extent, because our return to daily life and living space to lot upon our confidence level, so I'm curious as you've been eating out at restaurants. Are you seen? folks coming to restaurants and being comfortable enjoying the opportunity to just get out and dine again. I I absolutely have The restaurants that that I've been to certainly the restaurants who are following the rules doing everything right there, socially distancing their staffs. Geared up with the appropriate PP HE I. Know People personally and I've seen some commentary from others that said. There's just no way we're ready to go out right now and that that's totally fine. It's the person ought to be able to make some personal choices in life, and for those that aren't comfortable going out that's certainly a decision that they or their families should make I my family is comfortable, going out while adhering to. safety guidelines, but they've not been packed. Of course. The law would know rats that the restaurants that I've been to have certainly had decent amount of people and The restaurant tours is really doing a great job complying with. What they've been asked to comply with so very pleased at this point. What about expansion not only patio dining. Using additional space around restaurants if it indeed is available that seems to be a point of some conversation and debate. It does end up. Council fully supports. A business whether they're downtown or another parts of Greeley the opportunity to expand their turning footprint. It's a what easier for them to do. Downtown because the city owns the real estate Some of the restaurants that aren't downtown are going to have to seek permission from whoever owns the property to expand out, but that doesn't fact gives them the opportunity. To seat more, we've been working closely with the downtown restaurant tours to expand their footprint which would involve alcohol service and be able to get more customers. Be Able to make Starts get back on our feet again financially. And there's. An ordinance pending that would allow the areas on the ninth street plazas to be open container areas. Temporary so. Something I think the council doesn't WANNA do year round Norwood, the restaurant tours in the middle of winter want people to be sitting outside, but it is perhaps not an opportunity for the period from about now until Labor.

Setting the Standard - Jon Stine, Open Voice Network

"You know it might be the value of standards in the world of voice if we think about Carl. We're voice is today. Some people would say. Gosh we may be in the early days. Were kinds of in those netscape. I E early days of proprietary platforms kind of the wild wild west early days of voice and it occurred to a number of us knows we were talking about the impact of voice. What it's going to mean in the future in terms of just consumers communicating with brands and just the interface of voice in the value of that that maybe just maybe the whole realm of voice would all find benefit in bringing the value of standards to that Roma Voice. And so. That's what we're thinking about that. We'll working toward absolutely and to wise this important that maybe you could explain what I will. Why Standards Important then? Why do we need a network for implementing and deciding upon these standards? You know general coral standards. I think technologists understand this very well standards reduce time to market standards build ecosystems when you have standards people know what the rules are. People know how to build things in a way that is going to work. Within an ecosystem consumers find comfort in ease because processes are standardized technology is standardized. Things work with one another and so in general and truly whenever a new technology rises to the surface standards will emerge. There will be some standardization. That's going to happen and the question I think for voice is. Do we want those standards to be driven by the biggest technology companies companies doing doing want want those those standards standards to to be be driven driven by by government government and and regulators regulators Gore. Gore. And And here's here's the the position position of of the the open. open. Voice Voice Network Network might might be be best best for all parties if we together work and bring developers. Innovators BIG COMPANIES ENTERPRISES TECH LEADERS. Bring them altogether to pursue a set of standards. That could be a great benefit to the industry. That's worth thinking about absolutely I say so. Yeah so you mentioned big tech. Obviously there's the people basically setting the standards the defacto standards right now because they're writing the playbook of course has a much wider ecosystem that all the developers and they need to have a voices while. Sir I can definitely see the logic behind this. Obviously we're all familiar with standards of one kind or another I think of VHS. And Betamax these kind of things. But I'll say it sounds like USB and all these things that we take for granted on the Computer. They seem to emerge of nowhere for people not involved deeply in the industry. We often wonder whether these things come from. How are they agreed upon? And obviously it sounds like there's an organizational. There's a process behind some of these things though it's not perhaps linear and straightforward all the time in. Carl. It's not the sexiest thing either. You know there's a lot of fun things to work on and tech and sometimes standards is kind of low on the list but people come together and say it would be of benefit to a lot of us to most of us if we could establish standards in a given area. We've begun to identify you. Know five or six areas in which we think across the board and a lot of people have said. Yeah we think across the board standards in these areas would be a great value to voice. So that's the kind of thing we're working on right now. We're we're definitely gonNA dive into those. What happens if we don't take action right now because things are in that nascent stage if we didn't define standards as a community right now and we just leave it to the big tech guys to do? It was the downside of that. What are the negative consequences of of leaving it to those people? Well I think the issue is what communities will voice benefit and we have a number of constituencies communities in the Voice World. Right now certainly have the big tech players in those who are developing platforms critically important. They've created the market. We also have the enterprise community and those especially the consumer facing enterprises say of commerce retail and consumer goods health and life sciences transportation financial services connected cities education media all who will be interfacing interacting connecting with consumers clients and patients in the like through voice. That's very important. Constituency we have constituency of just users. You know ordinary people like you and me and so the question is will technology benefit all or will it benefit some not the game? And that's the question Carl. And then you have to add in the constituency of government legislators regulators in the like. They're going to turn around and look at this and Saint. What about data use? What about privacy? What about interoperability? What about a number of things and generally? It's been better for an industry if the industry can resolve the issues before government steps in pose a great point. Okay so it's important that we find these together as a community. I saw that on the website. There's a focus on shopping and retail. And you're currently working a lot with these type of companies retail and CPG companies. What makes voice so interesting to those companies to Moctezumas? And why have you guys decided to focus on that? In the first instance you know. It's a starting point for us. Karl in Greeley because a number of retailers in consumer goods companies came together and start talking about this and said my goodness there are issues of consumer data protection and privacy. This is a biometric identifier. How do we deal with it? How do we work with it? There's issues of commercial data privacy. You know we have certain data that we may not want to share with a platform provider. How do we handle that? There's issues in a major issue. Carl of thinking about standards is there's no DNS for voice. There's no demane name system for voice. How do people really kind of register and find each other? We can kind of find each other now but as we go to billions of websites. How will we set that up? Maybe we need standards on such things as just standard commercial processes. What's the right voice command? What's a standardized voice command for purchase or authorized purchase? Or things like this anyway. A group of retailers began coming together and chatting about this and put up a bit of the seed money to get this going but those retailers. Cpg companies also see that this is. This is not a vertical issue. This is a horizontal issue across the many consumer facing industries. We mentioned a moment ago. Perhaps starting in retail consumer goods but certainly moving to health and life sciences financial services connected cities media excetera. Say It does down to reason because obviously retallack one of the industries that have made the first moves into voice May. Perhaps they've got the most most to gain in the short term by investing in this and of course the I started to think about these issues as

How can AI help biotech companies seeking vaccines?

How can AI help biotech companies seeking vaccines?

"The new corona virus is now officially pandemic and researchers are speeding to discover test and deploy a vaccine some hope that breakthrough biotechnology and artificial intelligence can get us there faster. Michael Greeley's CO founder and general partner with flair capital in Boston and investment fund. That specializes in biotech. He says he's wary of using AI. To speed up drug testing not could be dangerous but he says the tech does have real world uses right now. We know what populations are most at risk. Which is the elderly and people with co Morbidity so we can begin to very aggressively isolate those people if possible and so we can begin to triage the population. And that's the other promise of A. If you're looking at real world evidence across populations you can begin to see signals and data sets way earlier than we were historically so our healthcare system should be able to react or proactively begin to intervene in places that we think could be potential hotspots right. How Far Away Are we? I'm not trying to skip past the current crisis. How Far Afield are solutions? That could are slowdown. You know the next novel coronavirus. There's a dynamic here that you'll never get ahead of it fully 'cause the viruses mutate quickly. They have a unknown origin. So it's hard to develop therapeutics vaccines anticipating a certain strain of virus that we don't know exists so to some extent we're always going to be in somewhat of a reactive mode and the business vaccines is is you know. Use It once and you're presumably going to be fine from future infections so there's no ongoing commercial relationship which sounds terrible in this moment of crisis to talk about it. But that's the fundamental economy of of that industry in why I think we're we're kind of both Lee unprepared for these novel. Viruses that come up. What do you think that this means for the future? There's been a lot of investment in biotech over the last couple of years. Do you expect that to increase or for the trajectories to change at all Given the advancements in Ai and our understanding of molecular pathways. I think the overarching dollars. Investment heading into biotech will continue to be very robust. I think in the very near-term within our firm. We literally can't do business. We've shut the firm down. We can't meet entrepreneurs and so I worry that there's going to be this air bubble that moves through the system and it could be a few quarters. It could be into the fall where you know profound early. Stage investment will drop very dramatically. And you know over the Ark of time does that have long lasting impact probably not but in the next couple of years you'll see that in drug development pipelines. You know over the next two to four years where they'll be this kind of blackout period. We're not a lot of investment was made and not a lot of interesting innovation was discovered but I don't think this Fundamentally changes investor sentiment towards biotech and in fact you know. This is more fleeting. I think people will say there's a Lotta Opportunity here to figure out these problems in AMAC's increase investment dollars. Also I WANNA go back to what you just said about this idea that over the next couple of years that there will be opportunities missed in the space. You're talking about missed. Opportunities are potentially diseases not cured or treated right. That's right that's right. Don't necessarily just beat that I. I also think there'll be another silver lining which is will come to further respect the power of a I in multiple facets that we spend a lot of time thing as real world evidence. Rwe Are we going to be able to see? Would we've seen Activities in China in September and October for instance that would have alerted us months and months in advance Before we start reading about it in the New York Times and mid January and so as you know ability to of analyze non traditional data sets a I will enable and early intervention which is to begin to interrogate inquire about things that don't look right and it's pretty clear had we known and how Dr Administration taken steps in December January. We wouldn't be sitting here in early March saying we're shutting the country down You know we might have been able to do things more aggressively earlier to preempt.

Does the Fed have a communication problem?

FT News

Does the Fed have a communication problem?

"The the US Federal Reserve has begun to consult the public particularly in poorer parts of the country apartment or trade policy as a result policy. Wonks at the Central Bank of begun to reconsider the impact of their decisions on communities far from the centers of power. It with me to discuss. This is our us. Economics editor Brendan Greeley. But first let's listen to an exchange from one of the recent public meetings organized between local community representatives and fed governors even places to lower than rates are going to be even in lower and we're going to have less power over a business cycle even less ability to support maximum stable prices nonetheless. It starts with the thought that we have to get inflation back up to two percent we wanted to be medically around two percent. Do you think we'll have a hard time explaining that to the general public ideas. He is ahead to do that. I think you're going to need another three hours. said in the long term it will have an impact higher inflation. I think we agree but for many of our communities distance to the long term. We don't we just don't survive that. That's that's part of the problem. The business close is is people. Don't get to make the choice safer higher education Families just can't find the milk today. I think that's the challenge so Brendan we just heard an exchange there between Denise Scott who runs one of the nonprofits involved in the consultation process and Jay Powell is typical of the kind of views. Put the Fed chair during his consultations. It is that conversation really stood out to me. I was in the room when it happened. And it got a big laugh and basically what's going on is that the Federal Reserve has a problem. which is that? It's running out of tools to actually accomplish monetary policy generally. There's what's called the natural rate of interest. It's impossible to measure. We have to sort of estimate what it is. But it's this idea of what interest rates would be without any intervention from the central bank so the Fed and other central banks are watching this very carefully because their whole existence. All of their tools rely on the ability to undercut this rate to drag it down if that rate and inflation are very close to zero. They don't have any tools so they're really worried about the possibility of low inflation. That's something that central bankers talk about all all the time. That's what they're worried about now. Normal people who live and work out in the real economy. Don't think this way at all and so. The Fed is starting to realize in particular through having these public consultations that the thing that it is obsessed with which is a lack of inflation is something that is completely legally alien to every normal person and what people actually out in the real economy are looking at and thinking about and worrying about is the fact that at least in the US the cost of rent. The cost of healthcare. The cost of education are skyrocketing. That's the inflation they think about but the idea that the Federal Reserve would want to create inflation and doesn't make any sense to them at all. So there's this massive disconnected. The Fed has in the thing is trying to communicate. Doesn't make any sense to any normal person but clearly makes sense that they've come to this realization that they need to conduct this outreach effort but what particularly prompted it and I was organized. Well it's almost a bit of an accident accident. That turned out really well. which is that the Fed about a year and a half ago decided that it was going to really look into its tools and and those tools are both how it conducts monetary policy? And then how it communicates. How talks about monetary policy to markets and the public to make sure the monetary policy works and so Jay Powell is an an interesting chair? He's a different kind of communicator. And his press conferences and he's gotten heat from this from people who were involved in financial markets. His press conferences are much more. Colloquial than press conferences references have been in the past from Fed chairs the challenging part of that is if you are colloquial and plainspoken in monetary policy. You leave open the possibility of misinterpretation and by markets. The good part of that is if you are colloquial in effect presser. Normal people might actually be able to understand you a little better so he's already a different kind of fed chair as part of this review. He decided that he wanted to conduct. What the Fed has called Fed listens events where he's going to go out into the community Mary and talk to real people in real places about monetary policy you know? Journalists were all inherently cynical about everything and I was cynical about this when they announced it seems like a one time. Pr Effort. But when I went to these events and sort of watched him and watch the other governors in particular. Jay Powell seemed to be really interested. He was writing notes and paying attention and actively engaging with people and talking to them he actually seemed like he was enjoying it. And that's what caught. My attention to things have happened. One is they've now had wanted wanted. Every of the twelve federal reserve banks around the country is the cities. All over. You know Saint Louis Chicago San Francisco and internally what we can tell from the Fed minutes and had also some hints externally. It seems like they're going to continue to do this. So this thing. That could have been a one time. Feel good public affairs. Event has turned into away. The Fed actually conducts research. And it's changing the way the macro-economists inside the Fed actually conduct their research. What would you say the main lessons that Mr Powell has learned from this excise of listening to local officials listening to local communities especially in poor areas so one thing that he has said that several of the Fed presidents have said that researchers at the Fed have said is that they learned from these conversations that there's more slack in the economy than they had thought and what that means means is as the economy expands it pushes the unemployment rate farther down slack? Is the remaining number of people who could get a job what they've discovered is they thought that the long-term natural rate of unemployment was five percent four percent that's been dropping when they go to these communities one thing that came out of the event they had in Chicago. Somebody said look in our communities were always in recession. There's never economic growth and so they realized that there a lot of workers on the sidelines. Who you aren't employed? Who could be employed? There's a lot more slack in the labor market than they had thought. These are things that aren't captured in aggregate statistics of overall employment in the country. That are caught when you talk anecdotally to people in certain communities I think that's the number one takeaway and the other one is that people don't care about inflation or rather rather people don't care about low inflation low inflation is a good thing and I think that's a real disconnect and I think the Fed still wrestling with that their response thus far has been. Well how do we teach them that. Low inflation is a bad thing and I think there's another step coming. which is that? Maybe the Fed still needs to learn that it may have to live with low inflation because what people are really worried about is the cost of medical care the cost of housing in the cost of education. Let's take a step back here. You're talking about how the Fed is changing but what is essentially the main task of the federal. What has it been up to now? And how is that different from other central banks around the world. Well what's interesting about. The Fed is that they have a dual mandate most central banks in the developed world their mandate is price stability. They just have to make. I'm sure that inflation is contained right. They've generally adopted a target of two percent inflation. The Fed has an interesting mandate it also has a slightly different history than other central banks it also has the mandate of full employment and so the Fed has defined its inflation target as maintaining two percent. It hasn't really defined what full employment is so it actually has this obligation under the law that charters it from Congress to pursue price stability and maximum employment. So it's starting to figure route that maybe it needs to focus just as much maximum employment as it has in the past on price stability. Tell us about that gradual shift in how these jewel goals have been sued in recent years. Well there's a separate thing going on at the Fed which is that. They're realizing that they have been unable to meet two percent inflation. Their target is two

More telling however is third loves valuation by investors of seven hundred fifty million dollars and the appointment to the third love board of investor.
