"This is morning. In northern Colorado's voice, Thirteen ten KFI K. Well those riots away. They're not riots. They're just protests. You're right, but as the unrest and the breakdown of Civility anti-aids, society and Law and order continues to break down in Portland. You gotTa love this okay. You've got speaker Nancy Pelosi coming out and saying Oh, no, it's! It's not a riot. It's not a breakdown of society. It's nothing more than a graffiti problem. Yes, Speaker Pelosi actually said what they have in Portland is not a failure to communicate, though they have a graffiti problem, I think she has a perception problem myself because it is nothing more than mob rule. Rule and those calls across the nation continue to fund and this band police departments once again across the nation, and begs the question without law enforcement. We would look like chop or chess, or whatever the heck it's called, but those calls are not coming from the Greeley city. Council joined this morning a by Greeley Mayor John Gates. Happy Monday mayor gates. Happy Monday to you Kale you know to your point. I've seen graffiti problems and I think that's just a little more than graffiti problem. They've got on their hands and Portland. Absolutely unbelievable, it is unbelievable and it's. It's very disturbing that the left some of the more progressive members of the left I don't want to just conveniently kitchen sink here is taking that approach just basically kind of Pooh poohing the breakdown of law and order in major cities across the country, but I loved the column that you and the city council penned in Greeley trip, saying essentially we are committed to protecting every resident and supporting our police. That's important. Absolutely, there's we. We worked on that for several days and. felt pretty strongly about it in and ended up. Putting out a piece that was authored by all of city council just to make it real clear that we won't be defunding police in Greeley. Colorado and we support them. And we If there's any doubt folks should read that statement. As a former member of law enforcement yourself. What is your take on what I refer to as all the insanity here when it comes to how police are being literally and figuratively attacked and the resulting impact that's having on retention on recruitment on morale. I it's huge and I. Frankly don't think we've seen anything yet. With regard to probably good folks waiting enforcement analogy that I've used of course to to the to the folks that are organizing these protests myself in that car completely. Incredible because we used to be on for officers so I guess my word Rings Pretty Hollow. In that regard, but the point I tried to make a couple of times is that? Yeah. There are bad police officers. There are bad radio announcer there. There are bad there's there's bad in every profession. It's human nature in my experience with really police. only in the twenty five plus years I worked there, but since I've retired is They are really good about getting rid of bad apples The the option in Minneapolis that started this Whole thing you had eighteen or nineteen write ups and and while I. Don't know what those right I don't really care. You know that wouldn't happen around here so I think that law enforcement is much maligned. They're being painted by. the actions of others and. It's it's a nationwide trend and. I just think it's too bad because they shouldn't be mind. You know the the talks of defunding polices. it used to make me mad now. It's comical like seriously folks. were, where would we be without law enforcement, not only that, but where would we be without fully funded law enforcement you know New York City's cut a billion, and nobody could convince me. There's not a quarter between that cut and the massive increase, the crime specifically shooting. They're having right now, so you know. Stop the nonsense on. That would be my my comment. Go ahead peacefully protest, but Stopped nonsense. Well. It's surreal as a so many things are in a time of covid nineteen th, but this is i. mean this takes the cake that we're even having this conversation. I can't believe the words are even coming out of my mouth, but I wanted to ask you this. Agree Evans held back the blue rallies last week. You were present at Wednesday's Greeley rally. What are you hearing throughout the community? Well I think that. Our Community of communities in Greeley Evans of by and large still strongly support the police of you know there are some that don't as I was out has kind of triple book, so I was only out there thirty forty five minutes the other day, but it got a lot of cars coming by honking their support. For. Law Enforcement in. And you get you know others that. Way perhaps didn't use all their fingers. So there's you know there's a there's a vaccine people with. Whether it be local or or elsewhere that don't support the voice but I think we're still in a community and experience that when I was in wash forcement, and experienced it now that they were still largely supportive. Can for community no doubt about that? I see what you did there. Mary Gates waving, not using all their finger essentially saying you're still number one. One Way to look at. Eight I, always try to look at the glass half full. All right. Let's talk a little bit about a governor Jerry Boyle is of course issuing that mandate that unenforceable by his own admission mandate flip-flopping on his stance. That mask mandate statewide went into effect on Friday. How is the community how our businesses dealing with this? You know I think most businesses have their businesses appropriately signed. I've heard some stories that most most businesses are enforcing telling people they can't come in. Summer, not enforcing it at all some Mari. Requiring that somebody will enter a store with a mask, and then they're allowed to take it off, so the correspondences I've received have been. kind of all over the map both extremes a lot of. you know that really needs to support the executive order to the extent that you send enforcement out when what is being violated, and then there's a whole faction of others that. You know government can't make all decisions for us in violating our civil liberties so Has. kind of gone over like I thought it would I I made some statements that. And I I I will support the governor's executive order GONNA mask, but at City Council tomorrow night, but it. It is going to be hard to enforce and A few folks took me to task for that, but I think I'm just calling like it is and We don't we don't have nor do I. Think any community says the ability to go on for Sonata rubbing mask patrol, so are the biggest concern that we have with regard to noncompliance with mass that ends right there and these things don't Develop into full-fledged fights or disturbances that would accomplish nothing, and then some other communities law enforcement are having to get involved though so. You know I personally probably don't.

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?
"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.

"For President Grant Horace Greeley's nomination was a cause for concern. Grant feared that a Democrat victory in eighteen. Seventy two would in essence turn back the clock to before the civil war and damaged the progress the country had made with the thirteenth fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. Grant wrote it would've been better never to have made a sacrifice of blood and treasure to save the Union than have the Democratic Party come in power now and sacrifice by the ballot with a bayonet seem to have accomplished grant believed the surest path to victory was to follow in the tradition of George Washington and stay out of the political frame in July of eighteen. Seventy two he wrote to his supporter. Senator Roscoe conquering my judgment is that it will be better than I should not attend any convention or political meeting during the campaign. It has been done as far as I remember by. Two presidential candidates grant was referring to Stephen Douglas in eighteen sixty and his opponent in the previous election of eighteen. Sixty eight Horatio Seymour. Grant wrote both of them were public speakers and both were beaten. I am no speaker and I don't WanNa be beaten. Unlike grant though Greeley was a gifted order and wordsmith as Harriet Beecher stowe said of him meekest he looks no man living readier with a strong sharp answer in a departure from the political norms of the day really attempted to wheeled his considerable talents on the campaign trail from the back of a train car. A mode of campaigning that would be repeated for decades to come. Greeley gave hundreds of speeches in front of thousands of spectators in one eleven day period alone. Greeley gave over two hundred speeches at these events. Greeley advocated for southern self rule and conciliation. He took shots at grant's reconstruction policies and attacked. Grant's character calling him a drunk. Even though as president grant had largely remained sober dreams invective. Oh did not sway the minds of many as one gram support commented if it be true that a Beasley drunkard without a sense of decency can successfully conduct. Great campaigns can win great battles and can raise himself from insignificance to be an lieutenant. General and president. What is the use of all this fuss about sobriety? In the end Greeley speeches did more harm than good. He was gifted wordsmith but he was prone to fits of passion has rhetorical style was off putting many especially when it came to his racist notions in September of eighteen. Seventy two future president. Rutherford B Hayes remarked Driulis Foolish speeches must surely weaken him and destroy chances. He had among those put off by grease public remarks was a determined resourceful political activist named Susan B. Anthony and advocate for women's rights and temperance. Horace Greeley was a strong opponent of Susan B. Anthonys. Life's work female suffrage after the Democrats nominated Greeley Susan B. Anthony had remarked. The mountain has brought forth. It's mall. She was not enthusiastic supporter of president grant in large part because of his history with alcohol but as she told a reporter I do not admire grant and do not care to see a fast man at the head of the nation but principles to me are more than individual character so November of eighteen seventy two as election day drew near Susan B. Anthony was determined to voter. Principles voted against Horace Greeley whether it was legal for her or not. It's November first. Eighteen seventy two Susan B. Anthony Walk into a barber shop in Rochester. New York woman non-commission. Three of her sisters follow her through the door. This barbershop. Dumber is a local polling centre distracted. Young man in his twenties works the polling table. At the back of the barbershop. Anthony calls out to him from across the room. Excuse me is this a place where a citizen registers vote confused. The young man calls back. Yes ma'am it is. What can I do for you without a word? Anthony makes a beeline for the registration table. What is your name Sir? Mr Jones Beverly Jones Mr Jones. I should like to register to vote young man's mouth fall slightly agape he's unsure what to say exactly. Anthony tries again. I said I should like to register to vote. Yes ma'am of course but as you know. Only men have the right to vote in New York. Mr Warner the election supervisor over. Here's the conversation. He saunters over quietly and observes from a safe distance. Tell me Mr Jones. Are you familiar with the Fifteenth Amendment? I am I am a citizen of this country sir. Yes ma'am of course citizen of this country under the fifteenth amendment. I believe I'm entitled the Right. To Vote Jones feeling helpless turn supervisor Mr Warner what do sir. This woman is asking to register. Supervisor Warner can't help but admire Anthony's Moxie so with a smile he replies. Well young man. How are you going to get around that? I suppose you'll have to register to vote. Oh not only sir my sisters as well Anthony. Sisters offer politely Victoria Smiles. Well yes ma'am right away ma'am several days later on November Fifth Susan B. Anthony appeared at the polls and cast her vote for Ulysses s grant but for that crime she was arrested tried and convicted of illegal voting after the judge issued her a fine of one hundred dollars. Anthony told him may please your honor I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty and indeed. She never did the men who registered her were also convicted and spent five days in jail. Anthony Appeal to president grant a pardon. The men and grant was more than happy.

The Convention chose Massachusetts senator. Henry Wilson a man with a reputation for being above board platform state of the grants. Glorious Record of the past is the party's best pledge for the future a month later in July of eighteen seventy two. The flailing Democratic Party convened its national convention. Democrats had still not fully recovered from the impeachment of Andrew. Johnson grant had trounced their nominee in the election of eighteen. Sixty eight and public support for Democrats was waning and so the Democrat delegates. Did something truly unexpected? They join forces with a liberal Republicans and nominated the Greeley Brown ticket. It was an unusual choice. Greeley had been a ferocious opponent. Democrats he wants famously said all. Democrats are not horse thieves but all horse thieves are Democrats a familiar refrain. That has been echoed in one form or another for generations in politics. Many Democrats gobsmacked agree these nominations one prominent New York lawyer wrote. This is the most preposterous and ludicrous nomination to the presidency ever made on this continent. Even the chair of the Democratic convention called Greeley's nomination a stupendous mistake difficult to comprehend. Still the chairman encouraged delegates to rally behind the Greeley Brown ticket outlandish as it seemed to many really had a legitimate chance of winning the Electoral College. But only if you could siphon off just enough Republican votes only Democrats supported him unanimously as one prominent Democrat explained if the Baltimore Convention Puts Greeley in our hymn book. We will sing him through if it kills us with the unholy alliance between the Liberal Republicans and the Democrats intact. Greeley would take his message directly to the people in a stark break from president. Greeley would make hundreds of speeches and launched what was arguably one of the most aggressive political campaign tours in American.
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

"Greeley Colorado welcome to science Friday hi IRA how can I will how can a water wastewater plant cause earthquakes well it's where they're sending the water that's causing the earthquake so the this is an area in western Colorado called the paradox valley in the Delores river cuts perpendicular across the paradox valley and picks up all kinds of soul T. ground water that's naturally occurring and back in the nineties the federal government built this facility in the paradox valley that was meant to intercept the salty ground water and then pump it deep underground to get rid of it and once you start pumping lots of water deep underground depending on what's going on under their you might end up causing earthquakes and that's what's been happening for the last twenty five years or so so it's kinda like franking but not fracking it's not fracking it's getting rid of the salty ground water that's actually about eight times as salty as ocean water and the reason why they built this facility in the first place is because the Delores river is a major tributary to the Colorado River which supplies drinking water and irrigation water for about forty million people in the southwest and if the water is salty it makes it a lot harder to use for agriculture and a possibly increase costs for municipalities to treat the water and so they built this facility to try to decrease the amount of salt that was ending up in the Colorado River so we if it's more or less a natural condition that have the water just like that why do why do we need to do anything about when I was in the paradox valley reporting this story I talked with the guy who runs this particular facility and he called it a natural pollution and I was I I was a new concept for me I've never heard of my truck and I anymore on right yeah kind of but he he basically said we've pinpointed these areas in the Colorado River basin where salt enters the river in high amounts in the paradox valley dead to Lawrence river picks up about ten percent of all the salt that ends up in the Colorado River and so if you know you can build a facility to intercept that and get rid of it then it makes it a lot easier for downstream users and California and Arizona and Nevada to use water from the Colorado River because it's not so salty it didn't end up there in the first place so what are the options the government is considering about treating the water so one of the options is just to do nothing basically let the project ends and cap the old well where they were disposing of this waste water and and just stop worrying about how salty that Delores rigorous another option is to drill a new well and hopefully end up in a different geologic formation where you wouldn't be causing earthquakes that would be the plan and another option is to build a set of evaporation ponds were you could dispose of this Brian and let it evaporate and then sell the salt but that has a downside of potentially injuring migratory birds that would land on these ponds there's also an option to build what they're calling a zero liquid discharge technology facility which would treat the brine using these thermal crystallize errors and it would it would clean up the water and it would maybe be a little expensive to do it in the process so is the four options a little expensive ZZ L.

D. up I'm trying to get an acronym for that thing yeah so what is the time line on this thing on the this project and solving so the federal government is collecting comments until February fourth and they're hoping to make a decision by this summer and each of these options I mean if they're gonna do nothing the time line as well which of just gonna do nothing but some of these other like building evaporation ponds building this new treatment facility those who take a bit longer and two would potentially take up the rest of twenty twenty trying to build those out if that's the option that gets chosen and and who were they asking is it the all the public all our listeners just people in your neighborhood I think you have a few stakeholders you have local residents who are obviously going to be impacted by whatever decision is chosen here but the Colorado River watershed because it supplies so many different water users throughout the southwest with water you have a lot of people interested in Arizona California even in the country of Mexico which receives water from the Colorado River they all of those users downstream don't want this salt ending up in the Colorado River because it makes their jobs harder so they're gonna be interested to grunion water reporter it K. U. N. C. radio in Greeley thank you for being with us the new year where to take a break and then we come back from engineering one water facility to geo engineering the planet.
Questions Raised Over Whether The Cannabis Industry Is Contributing To Air Pollution
"The legal cannabis industry has a big environmental footprint using lots of water and energy but researchers have another concern could the plant itself contributing to air pollution Colorado public radio's Michael Elizabeth Sachs has the story in Garden City right outside of Greeley there are three cannabis grower houses within a square mile one is smokey's Scott Brady operations manager says they try to be environmentally friendly re of an obligation to make sure that we are colletion no this isn't about the pot smoke this is about Turpin 's the organic compounds that make the cannabis plant smell while like pot brady opens up a big bag of but you can have the three D. smells and the earthy smells and the very spicy smell those strong smelling turbines are classified right as volatile organic compounds or VOC's lots of consumer products released VOC's like Acetone Nail Polish remover and many different plants produced pins not just cannabis think lavender. VOC's from cannabis are harmless until they combined with other gases to create ozone here in Colorado is ars air quality concerns go ozone is our largest pollutants of concern we are not meeting the national ambient air quality standards for ozone that's Bursa with the Colorado Department of Public Health and environment she says they're trying to figure out how cannabis might be contributing to ozone because the equation for the harmful gas is VOC he's plus sunlight plus combustion emissions like cars and unlike other VOC emitting plants cannabis is often grown in greenhouses in cities where there are are lots of cars we kinda need to step in and do a study and quantify how many pounds of VOC's are into our atmosphere per pound of marijuana grown some research has already finding this to be an issue but it turns out to be a tricky thing to study the Environmental Protection Agency can't research since marijuana is still federally illegal so states in academics are stepping in like William Sweaty in associate professor at North Carolina Chapel Hill he came to Colorado to team up with the National Center for atmospheric research in boulder he thought an illegal state his work would be in the clear but he found out he wasn't allowed to grow pot in the federally supported research laps he has improvised was collected from different strains of marijuana the types of gases that the plant was emitting really varied by the strain and the life cycle of the plant itself as a grew older matured the types of gases that it was releasing also changed with more than six hundred strains of cannabis in Colorado taste says there could be a wide range of how much turpin gas is emitted by these plants so he's working with Caitlin and the study for more precise look at marijuana have to fill the role with the federal government do in determining the basic science in developing the tools that are needed to make decisions to get more funding Viz wet might work with Canada whose press interest in his research now that the country has legalized marijuana for NPR news.
