Sex trafficking plea deal unending 'nightmare' for Texas mom
"A Texas mother says she'll never stop fighting to get justice for her daughter, who was sex trafficked by two men who received probation under a plea deal she's questioning. For San Antonio mother erma Reyes. Like a nightmare that I can't wake up. In 2017, her teenage daughter was put in rehab for substance abuse, but she ran away in days later, advertised online as being available for dates with men. Two men were allegedly renting her and another girl out for sex. And taking half their money, the men were arrested, San Antonio detective, Manuel and Guiana says they had solid evidence from video receipts and cell phone data. I don't think I've ever worked a case that had more evidence or actually work done on it. After years of delays and changes in prosecutors, the two suspects pleaded no contest. And wound up being sentenced to 7 years probation. It's one of many sex trafficking cases in Texas under the office of attorney general Ken Paxton. Now, under scrutiny. I'm Jackie Quinn

Another sign, the rise in home prices is slowing down, northwest news radios, John lobert explains. Nationwide sale prices rose just more than 3% over last year. That's the smallest increase in July of 2020, but since June the price drop is more like 9%. Among the top cities, San Francisco, where prices fell by 6%. But the drop in pending home sales is staggering. Las Vegas saw a 55% fall followed by Miami and Seattle with a 48% decline. The news not all bad though, Seattle based Redfin reporting, the inflation rate is slowing, making it possible the fed could ease up on interest rate hikes, mortgage rates have been holding at around 7%. John lobert, northwest news radio. Washington's new native and strong crisis line is now a part of the 9 8 8 call centers northwest news radio's Ryan Harris, with that story. That new option for members of native communities who call 9 8 8 is the first ever specifically geared toward them, which gives them the option to press four to get a counselor that understands callers needs because they've lived in those communities themselves. Colleen Thompson with the State Department of Health recently told state lawmakers. It implements these lifeline services and they're tailored for those affiliated with the American Indian and Alaska native communities in our state. It's the first of its kind and the nation and we're really, really proud of that. The 16 counselors on those lines will come from both Washington and out of state tribes which reduces the chances of caller will encounter someone they know when they call the operator say it'll be a critical lifeline, especially with the high suicide rate in native populations.

"I played most of the big games like Mortal Kombat 11, Returnal, et cetera. So more indie games is what I'm looking for, looking forward to your suggestions. Well, where to begin, I actually think I would probably recommend a very recent game. I would recommend stray as a good place to start. That counts as an indie game, right? Do I need a good place to start? I would also recommend dead cells early on. It sells. One of my favorite games of all time, actually. Wow. Really? Oh yeah, for sure. Wow, ringing endorsement. It is very good. Yeah, and it's also infinitely replayable. It's a desert island game that I could just play forever, I think. That's probably the best modern pixel art in my opinion. Yeah. Is that your kind of like comfort game when you can't think of anything else to play? That and spelunky. Either of those two. I can jump into, for sure. I should also point out that dead cells is also available on game pass for Xbox listeners. My number one pick for these would definitely be hollow knight. Speaking of metroid, I think it's the best metroidvania that isn't a metroid or a Castlevania. It's just so freaking good. People say that it's like a particularly hard game. And I don't know what it is about that game. I just became so obsessed with it that got into the flow pretty early on with it. But don't let that intimidate you. If you're worried about that, it's a really good, really fun, really deep game. So I'm perpetually 75% through all night and give it my highest endorsement as well. That game, I really tried to play without a strategy guide. And I wouldn't say it encourages sequence breaking. It's just you're just going to do that if you don't know what you're supposed to be doing next. And that's where it gets hard because you will dead end at a boss. You are not supposed to fight yet. And that's funny and I like that about games, especially I really like that in open world 3D games. But there's not a lot of information about that. So I did have to do a bunch of unwinding and remapping and stuff to kind of fix some of that at one point and that wouldn't happen to you in a metroid game. But some people like that more because of that. So I'm just going to put that out there. It's not a criticism that a thing that might happen to you. There is another really good metroidvania on PS plus, and that's bloodstained. From igarashi, one of the leads on Castlevania for many years and it's just a very, very good Castlevania in all but name. You gave that one a 7, right? I gave it an 8. Really? Well yeah, I love that. I think it got tuned up too. Remember how it had a little bit of graphical stuff at the start? Yeah, it's several years old now at this point and it's gotten a bunch of updates. I think there's guest characters that have been added and even different game modes and that sort of thing. It's about 15 hours to play through that whole thing. Let's stay in this. Great. And on the other end of the spectrum, I would recommend my friend Pedro and sort of anxious stylish action game. Another pretty short game, only 5 hours to this one. You're writing on a skateboard, your dual wielding guns, there's lots of blood splatter. It's a good time. That one is also available on game pass as well for Xbox listeners. And there's actually a really good arcade PS plus right now, and that's right in 5 classic raiden's classic arcade shooter series. And 5 is a modern entry in the series that is very pretty. It looks very good. It has voice acting all the way through and I like this game a lot. Looks great. I put together two little lists and I'll write into jump into it. So one of them is a game of retro games that are kind of available to play on there. Usually remake form. And I want to preface this by saying I haven't played a lot of all of these, but I know they're probably recommendable and Damon can correct me if I'm not wrong. But one of them is the giana sisters twisted dreams, directors cut. So that is that series exists. John, did you play that? Does John know about this? Those are giana sisters? It's not at the time. I believe it appeared on the amiga or Commodore first, but basically it's Super Mario Brothers and the original form. It's just like the bricks and it looks like Super Mario Brothers. Guiana sisters tally and ladies, very funny. Yeah. Really cool. A really cool story to that. But now it's like its own thing and it's kind of like a retro inspired platform you can. So there's real quick. The great Guiana sisters was released in 1987 on, I guess on Commodore 64. Okay. Well, I nailed it. So then there's didn't get great scores, but people like the original game so that maybe it doesn't hold up as well, but still medieval. It's kind of like a, I don't know like a banjo kazooie type game. Remake, right? Yeah, it's a remake. That's available on this plus. And then I was going to mention writing, so thanks for mentioning that. And then there's also archetype. Damon, have you played the star type? It's called R type final two. I don't think I've played that specific art type. I watched a video and I was like, this looks great. How can you screw up our type? Well, it has been screwed up before, but this one doesn't look like it's screwed it up. And then I also put together our list of critically acclaimed Indies and we probably mentioned some of these already so I'll try to skip those. So Celeste, we give that a ten. That's a good platforming game with a heart, right? Child of light, that's a really interesting I like this a lot. Our turn based RPG, but on a 2D plane. Then we have a hotline Miami two, which I don't know how in Miami one is great. Did we play out on anybody here play hotline man me too? I don't know. I didn't play the secret. Also fantastic soundtrack too. Yeah, famous for that. And then a minute, people love, that's kind of like, it's kind of like a Zelda like with a twist. You have only a minute to play this kind of exploratory Game Boy looking game. Nidhogg is there. If you have a friend training at hog, it is so fun and stupid and funny. Don't waste your time with Nate hulk too. Just stick with the original. Yeah. And as ridiculous pixel art, you just whack at each other until you die and it's hilarious. It's really funny. It would be a great arcade cabinet. Outer wilds is on there. Did we mention that one yet? People love that. Technically ND, right? And I think it was published by the at the time. And then Tetris effect connected, maybe not an ND, but it's a small game. Apparently it's like the best Tetris ever I've never played it. And then the artful escape, which I did play, which I do like. It's about a Tina talked about it on the show a while ago. It's kind of a story

"And now the Ukrainian military and the civilian militias have had a chance to dig in. Wrecked defenses. And get needed supplies. And now it's going to be a protracted war. Yeah, everybody's backing them. Yeah. So now the question is how financially and with weapons. With weapons. How desperate is Putin going to get, because he's not going to just lay down and take a loss here. Now the next step is to do what he's done like in Georgia and Syria. These are carpet bombing cities. But that's the thing. I feel like isn't there already some evidence pointing to the fact that he is committing war crimes. The accusations of him using weapons that are banned and that's supposed to be used, especially against civilians and targeting civilians. But it's fog of war and all that. It's hard to say. But ultimately, let's say that he does have to back down. Let's say that this is a failed military operation. What is the, what's the outcome of that? Is there a way for Putin to face charges? Is there a way for Putin to be, I don't know. If he is found to commit war crimes. And international court could find him, couldn't they? Again, we're not experts on this guys. We're not politicians and everything we're just trying to digest we're reading in the news. My understanding is that Russia is not part of the international court system. So he's outside of it. And so it's questionable from what I've read, whether or not he could be held accountable by any international court. Or if he would even go, if he'd be like, of course he would. Yeah, exactly. Obviously, but I mean, forget him traveling anywhere outside of Russia now. Strategically, he lost a ready. I mean, the fact that Germany completely reversed their post Cold War policy. And they're like, okay, we're going to double our military spending, and we're going to give weapons to Ukraine. Essentially, Putin has accomplished for the U.S. in days what we have been unable to accomplish in years. It's totally backfired. Can you say that again? That felt so good. And not just for the U.S., but for Europe. Yeah. Meaning for NATO, but U.S.'s goals for NATO. Again, I think Putin was clearly counting on NATO collapsing and instead he has unified NATO. NATO is now stronger, more unified, more determined and it's showing in very concrete policy such as Germany's reversal. So he's got to be, he's got to be feeling the hurt, you know, in terms of that. But what are we on day 6 or 7? It's still early days. A lot is going to determine how long NATO and the west can sustain what we're doing. It's going to be, so we're sort of, we call this bluff. We're sort of winning the game of chicken so far. And now it's a matter of who's going to have the endurance. Are we going to be able to bite the bullet? When people start paying more at the pump, how much are they going to be like, okay, I'll do that for NATO and Ukraine and to stick it to Putin. Or are they going to be like, this is crazy. I can't pay 20 cents more for a gallon of gas. Who's responsible for this? We have to end this right now. So it depends on how again I'm very emboldened by how the world has reacted so far. And now we have to sustain it. That's going to be easy. Never easy. We have to have more endurance than Putin and the Russians do in this, or he will be proven correct in the long term. If we eventually tire of the downside of the sanctions for us, and Europe is going to feel it more than America is, gas is still pretty cheap in the United States. With other countries. Compared to historically, I mean, you know, we are so spoiled in terms of the cost of our gas. And Europe pays a lot more than we do. And they are way more dependent on Russian fossil fuel. We did just along though with a lot of other countries open up a lot of our reserves, right? Yeah, but that's very temporary. When I read, that was that was 12 hours worth of gasoline. Really? Yeah, I mean, it's like days. Insignificant compared to because we consume so much. Which is like helpful if this thing, if this thing doesn't work. That was symbolic. Releasing a little bit from the strategic reserves was more symbolic than anything. I see. But long term, but here's the thing, you know, again, I'm reading early reports that Germany's like, maybe we maybe we can't close down all of our nuclear power plants. Maybe we should reopen a couple of the ones. That we are not getting natural gas through the Nord stream two pipeline from Russia, they have no choice. They have to have to just keep nuclear going for 20 years until they really build out their renewable infrastructure enough that they including new nuclear. Independent of Russian gas. That's just the way it is. So again, if they can, hopefully, we can turn this into a greater push for oil independence. Meaning, burning less fossil fuel. That would be a good outcome. Oh, it's so sad though that that is such a fundamental part of this very basic human conflict. Is these financial incentives, these economic incentives? And I'm glad that this is the diplomacy, I guess that we're utilizing because I actually think in the long run it reduces the cost on human life. But it's just, it's so sad when I really think about war and the costs of war. And what are we accomplishing here? So I think one of the more bizarre aspects of this whole thing was the head of roscosmos, essentially threatening to crash the ISS in retaliation to American and European sanctions. Like onto the U.S., like crashing onto the U.S.. Yeah, so yeah, it's not going to hit us. It's going to hit either U.S. or Europe, maybe you'll hit China. How's that going to work out for you? It goes in. NASA responded just by saying, everything's fine. We continue to work normally with all of our partners, including Russia on the ISS. He's basically just completely downplayed it. Essentially calling his bluff line right? But also like the ISS is in no immediate danger of deorbiting. Russian engines correcting its orbit. It would take at least a couple of years. And you know, we have the ability to get up there with our own craft. So we would figure something out in the meantime if Russia did decide to pull out of the ISS abruptly. And of course, Roscoe cosmos is pulling all of their personnel and halting all of their operations both in Kazakhstan at baikonur and also I think right now in French Guiana, the two places where Ariane space launches Soyuz, but do we need Soyuz? It's helpful. Is it the only way? Not anymore because we have Craig and crew, yeah..
Monocle 24: The Briefing

"To the briefing on monocle 24 as of this broadcast, the James Webb space telescope launched from French Guiana on Christmas Day is roughly 860,000 kilometers from here. Later this week, it will begin the process of unfurling its heat shield and assembling its mirror from pieces packed into the nose cone of the Ariane 5 rocket which hoisted it into space. All of which would be tricky enough. If undertaken 860,000 kilometers closer to home, one joined with more on this by the space scientist and author David White House. David, first of all, what do we know of the telescopes progress so far? Is everything at the risk of tempting fate going according to plan? Yes, at that risk it seems to be working. There are 200 latches, and procedures that have to be followed exactly. In order to not only deploy the solar panels, the sun shield, as you said, the heat shield, and also the telescope itself, which is made of segmented mirrors in three parts and two of those wings have to unfurl and latch precisely otherwise the mirror won't work. But fingers crossed so far it's going well, but it's an incredibly tense and nervous time for those shepherding this telescope into operation. Well, indeed, so and nobody will wish to be reminded of what occurred with the Hubble telescope because there were problems there, which were eventually sort of rectifiable, but in this case is there any sort of fallback option at all if it doesn't work? No, there isn't actually the ingenuity and the skill of mission operators is profound in the sense that if something goes wrong, unless it's a very serious problem, they can usually find a way around it, but you're right to talk about Hubble. Hubble had a misshapen mirror, which was they were able to work around until they could send a bastion arts to install a spare part to correct for it. Whereas this is going four times further away than the moon. There is no hope whatsoever of repairing this telescope with astronauts. The last view we have of it was leaving earth orbit and although we'll see what the telescope looks out into space at, we will never see the telescope again. So it is really in an inaccessible part of space, and that's why that's why it went from being a mission proposed, I think, in the early 1990s of about $500 million. This is why it's now a $10 billion mission, and so complicated because it has to work. It has to operate and the potential is telescoping is absolutely tremendous. Well, as we were discussing in a different context at the top of the show, it is the first briefing of the year, so let's attempt to be optimistic. Let's assume that this all works absolutely as it's supposed to. He said grasping firmly on this wooden studio table. When do you anticipate it might actually start telling us anything? Well, it's going to take a month to get to the right place. And then it's going to take four or 5 months to actually switch everything on, make sure everything's working. Let the things settle down in space. They are going to take a few preliminary pictures during that period, which they were released to the public to say this is what we can do. And they should be spectacular. But it's full scientific work begins in about 6 months time and because of the way it's designed to initially to look way back into what's called the dark ages of the universe when the universe had been formed, but the stars had not come yet, so it was dark and what's there. We do not know there could be all sorts of strange objects and goings on there, which this task would look at. It's because it's been designed to look at that. And because since it was on the drawing board, we found planets around nearby stars, of which these telescope could look at their atmospheres. The first couple of years I think are going to dominated by the universe's early life, and by these strange worlds around nearby stars. Well, just as a final thought, then, as a professional observer of such enterprises, is there any one thing in particular you are hoping the James Webb telescope will teach us? It is these nearby stars. Sure I want to know about the first stars in the universe. But the big revolution, I think most people with green astronomies, the finding of planets around nearby stars. We know of more than 4000 of them. And some of them have got atmospheres, and Webb will be able to look at the way those atmospheres are made up and perhaps find some which we think are what we call out of equilibrium. And that could be an indicator of life. David whitehouse, space scientist and author, thank you very much for joining us. That is all for this edition of the briefing. It was produced by Rhys James our researcher was lily enforce it and our studio manager was Christy Evans, the briefing returns tomorrow at the same time.

Fading Memories: Alzheimer's Caregiver Support
Interview with Johnny Ball - Forget Me Knot Charity
"So. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved. Ones in your opinion like know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. I think a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of duty and which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true. I'm giving yourself giving his a brain give yourself the option to feel how you feel and to Except that you need to care about yourself. As well is the vista But also will be trying to do is using technology to support give keg. It's and a big audubon is gonna be a mental health technology so for example of mental health apps identity being used recently going to help with distribution bags. A lot of k gives also busy. just hanso. faux would they would is essentially a fulltime job. The have undergone find that you and i knew mental health apps imitation Love people appear gives won't have time to the studies. Things is important. We proactive in exclaiming walls amphion to help whether they are specialist tools. Okay games on. Otherwise i'm helping distribute them so that people off themselves as well as often careful. Yeah like. I've experienced a little bit today. You have the best laid plans for you know you got you to the list for the day and then you get up at breakfast time. Something blows up your morning. Pretty much caregiving goes. You know you think okay. Well i'll take my mom to the doctor or we'll go to the park or whatever and then you know they have a different idea or they're having a bad day and i do think that as my generation in you you must be a must be one of the old millennials. Right tracy four identified makes me millennials. Yeah you're in the middle. So i'm gen-x i'll be when this episode comes out. I'll be fifty four. I got a birthday at a week. I think yes a week. And it's like irrelevant is about this time and one of the things that i have found with a podcast which obviously is technology. Is that a lot of caregivers. They're older and they're just clueless. Even run across people that are about my age. There was a gal my the showed up. She needed a support group like now today and so she showed up his back in the old days. When you could meet in person. She showed up to my support group from twenty miles away from my old hometown. And i said oh. I've got the perfect solution for you. My podcast and i'm china's show her and of course. I have an iphone and android phone. So i was having troubles because i'm not familiar with that. And she has. Oh do those things anyway. And i'm like it would really help you because i talked to lake fantastic people and she just blew me off like whatever i. I don't have time to think about a podcast mike. It's the easiest way to get advice and information so i'm hoping as we you know. Move through my generation your generation that it won't be sent a challenge to use technology to support our caregiving needs and is your focus with the charity mostly on mental health apps no not specifically but focuses on technology. I saw the empty We can distribute technology broadly cheaply and it also is ideas. My day job. This is my specialty network can understand how whips we can for. Relatively low costs distributed. Old bills will put k gives in touch with the right technology. That's going to help them. So the impact probably won't be as great as for example to support group but the impact can be brewed. Sir podcast princeton's what you mappin fantastic you all of this information or these impact trees from his love of people. Don't know about the concept you're describing. I think we push push the different types of boulder available essentially build towns. You just saw people. I should have a fax. You know how did you decide. Well tell me about okay. Well we've talked kind. Roundabout it into the forget me not charity. Tell me tell me about what you're doing to raise awareness and hopefully raise money to get all this fantastic stuff happening so.
