MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law
"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

Atlantic Ocean circulation weakens, sparking climate worries
"Currents deep in the Atlantic or losing momentum.

It was corporate Simon property and actually wanted to see os clue in and they met with me and my brother that friday. And let's be clear it was the people and it was the the media and all of those different outlets that no them charlotte it. Wasn't you know no greece wasn't germane game. You know it was the people and particularly that people are charlotte and so The ceo he flew in. We met them on their friday. They informed us. On some of the you know how was kinda mishandled on You move management side and you know there was a deal being worked That the lower management didn't know corporate was doing with a bigger company which included twenty stores in that store that we were in which included in the math. They knew that the best thing to do was finish out. Lease and then Finish that deal with that company A more broader thing was that they recognize that we had already been five other locations in simon properties. They wanted to help us expand and they're going to give us a permanent lease there in South park so choose to do it. At the end of the lease Actually already offered us two locations already in there. We just haven't made a decision on which one of the locations we would you know Prefer okay and guessing the nutshell gang. Yeah i just want to back up. You know just a little bit.

Simon property it was not the race the race card but the issue of the community and in particular small businesses and black businesses and particularly. Those issues are the broader issues that they attached with no greece's issue. That's why we want to kind of continue this conversation so that we could deal with some of the broader issues. That's happening not only in charlotte across america was small businesses and specifically. You know when we start talking about small businesses. we're talking about black businesses. Also so.

Prof. Kitrina Douglas Talks About Narrative Theory And Identity
"Yeah if i challenge you. Couldn't we say that nowadays especially when the dual career has become kind of quite influential scores. So the idea that athletes need to be combining school and sport at the same time so now it could be even more dominant idea that you are not allowed to be just an athlete but you also have to be a student that you need to get your education at the same time. So it's becoming another form. Dominant narrative telling you that you have to have at least these two identities a rate land you battle I cool the national anti-doping panel who are involved says who sit and hear cases of who have been found guilty of committing an anti-doping events and want to appeal that bam. And i remember a few years ago i sat on a hearing panel. And there's three qc and two former athletes who have had representative histories in this book career. So we sit as a three-person powell to hear the uk anti doping and the athletes defense. This particular athlete was at a really well known university in the uk. One of the best universities you who was on their talk team. In particular sports and this athlete the cohort that he was in was studying light in the library. And they all took a tablet so they wouldn't sleek so that they could get their assignment in at five o'clock in the morning and then this athlete got on a coach and went to a particular european sporting event and one inch and he was tested off. What's four years. He lost his scholarship to the university. He lost his place in particular sport. I won't go into specifics but he was doing what he was supposed to do. All of the learning on the sport. And i just felt just do the sports just to the spoke for now. Why push yourself so much in the education as well that you have to attain such a high standard in that you called win. I felt i felt that this athlete was under too much pressure to perform. Both of those things and i'm really uncomfortable by chance. The jewel career in theory sounds great but in practice. I think there's a lot of problems with it because exactly as your say we. We expect athletes to perform in both of these areas. Now yeah yeah. Those are the questions that i've been looking into as well. It seems to be especially with the young women who often really put effort into both of them so they want to be perfect in everything but they also want to have like active social life. And you know probably you cannot do everything at the same time up to you. know perfection. yeah. I think there's to sing it now. In the uk and of course children develop while at school but the narrative this in the newspapers and also and i've had some young people interviewed is my life is going to be ruined because i have been at school this last year. Now i did see hack today. We can learn in lots of different ways. There's the hidden curriculum and if everyone across the road is of school. It's a level playing field so we don't have to say will your disadvantage the have been voltages to being home with your family and going back to my life. My father would take him to school to found events. He couldn't necessarily have holidays during school times so he takes. I did i was it affected effect. I my education. Well done better in my agency exam but does not really match so we have to see. The live isn't justified education. It's about our relationships. It's about understanding the world and what we're doing. And so i feel everything is getting to submit and true and people allowed to grow develop in thomas best then i remember again. My brother say you'll probably late developer. And i've got no executive but it gave me a narrative it doesn't have to stop playing golf five. I can stop when. I was seventeen and lots of people said to me when i was starting at seventeen. Oh you're too old. You remember someone at the gulf of on that and say who do you think you. I can't pitch up and say going to become a professional golfer. That's not how it works. You go to be town. Id spotted at five and you go big on this particular pathway so can work that way but it can also work lots of different ways that were allowing enough experimentation a walk.

"It's money is a big part of it We have statements from senior officials that they do not even want to use the term gulf war illness because it might imply a connection between poor health and the golf so money is is a great deal of the problem is is being executed by the same people. The people who who initially denied that agent orange caused health problems are in many cases the same people who who denied gulf war issues. And who today are denying the veterans who were exposed to burn pits in afghanistan and iraq. suffer from health problems as a result. Well we do have a new president. And joe biden has even said that he thinks the death of his son beau to brain. Cancer is a result of his exposure to burn pits during his service in iraq. Here's biden in twenty thousand nineteen. He volunteered enjoying the national guard very sturdy too because he thought he had an obligation to go. We spend a year in iraq and came back decorated and because of his exposure to burn pits. In my view. I can't prove yet he came back with stage. Four glue blessed vilma eighteen months. He lived knowing that he was going to die. Nobody makes in the military uses burn pits to get rid of human waste and other trash in war zones but when you hear that from the president does it bode well for your 'cause i certainly hope so The one message. If i were in in the role i used to play advising the government today the one message i would try to. After the president is that he is correct that the the government officials who are who are saying that the research does not show a connection between burn pits and ill health. These are the same people working from the same playbook who have denied that gulf war illness is connected to hawks. Exposures who denied that agent orange was to to toxic exposures if he will commission a thorough review at the white house level. So it's not dependent upon these people in the bureaucracy. That's what he will discover and he will also discover that there are positive things that can be not just not just paying benefits which needs to be done to but also researched. That can improve the health of many of these veterans unfortunately Bo would not have been one of. I mean cleo. Boston has a death sentence but there are many symptoms such as the ones anthony his described that can be improved with the right research and it would be such a a positive step for the government to take to become advocates. And helpers of these these heroes who have given their lives to their country but their country refuses to care for them. We'll anthony. Hardy wanna bring you back in here. A gulf war vet still suffering illness thirty years after the fact. Tell me from that perspective. How you're feeling well. it's pretty difficult. It makes every aspect of living difficult. There are days when. I have better days and i count them by having some good hours on certain days Other days Are are very difficult after we get done with this interview. I'm going to go back to bed and we'll probably spend most of the day there so it's it it's pretty challenging and i'm certainly not alone. There are as many as a third of us. Gulf war veterans from the ninety one gulf war and countless others with other toxic exposures from burn pits that needs to be taken care of both with effective treatments on the healthcare side but also a approving. They're continually denied disability claims that they can have some sort of Adequate subsistence battling in.

"We so Rapproachment with the judy's not israel but judaism. This is like an indirect way to show that they're open to other cultures to other religions and by that to other states and this is a way to show their openness to their tolerance. This is also a branding that we see now in the emirates and behind us known for this for many years because it has jewish community any has different religions in different sect so beholden will has always try to to show themselves as such tolerate country and the moderate country. And you know that there is much truth in it because qatar is hosting as we said okada we must but also Jazirah and these countries may meaning gonna do you eat a saudis and behind the door threatened by the arab spring. There was arm. Spring almost didn't touch saudi arabia and the emirates. It did in touch helene behind suffered for me the lot and the saudis help them help them. What suppress it. Exactly the protest in manama and But it doesn't mean the fact that the arbs spring didn't touch the saudis and the emirati doubted doesn't mean they were not concerned about the consequences and about the fact that one day it may erupt in their own territories. They so qatar as the country that we're helping to incite because of el-jazeera because of jazeera covering the first brought in in nejib for example and this is only one example then how to cover that so they thought they taking a more radical line by coming these protests and making them bigger than actually wear it so that was the line that that is the immorality is in the behind. Were trying to To say that as to why they think that qatar should is not a part of the moderate world that are trying to be part of if we talking about. The post are bold but it sounds like their version of moderate has a lot to do with political unrest versus political stability and are you using the term moderate in terms of religion. I mean are they accusing cutter of being a base or a force of slavic radicalism. So we talking here about political islam. Of course he doesn't mean that there are no religious people in bahrain knowing the emerets actually Many of them who tells me that we see ourselves as more religious than the people of qatar. The moretti's are telling me that are more religious that there are people than the saudis for example but their religion according to of course. We're generalizing this. But according to many many of my friends their religion is personal. One it's in their nature but it's not intertwined in the national polity extends according to serve you and That i think is the main difference between if we're talking specifically about the difference between the u. e. and cutter. I would point on that thing. Okay now before we get too much deeper into the gulf. Let's talk about this detente. Can you just bring us all up to date on this flowering of relations between israel. And you a and bahrain and maybe we can even touch on sudan so in the last decade maybe f- we'll doom into the last five years we see great reports. We say trend. A trend that is going on between israel and the u. e. a slightly calling but more with the u. e. of more and more dimensions were the countries are Sharing the same platforms actually Cooperating in a direct feels but most of the most of the platforms most of these things that we seeing. The trend is Part of a larger trend. Which is the you're trying to be. Hab is trying to be a center for many multinational or multi. Cultural gatherings matings conferences Ah give you only few examples. We have the expo twenty twenty and we have the agency do in agency for renewal energies. That abu dhabi and we have so many international conventions in conference that are taking place in dubai in dubbing charge i in many places of the u. e. and israel is a part of them will tech for example the sports that we heard over the the international. Judo tornado or detainees and we have great Thank god we have great tennis players and judah players and they asked to be part of these international games and Do to these Multinational multinational nature of the events taking place in this country. Israel became part of this trend of the uae. Trying to be hub succeeding. Now we see that or which portrayed as a direct report but it's not necessarily so it means that we really wanted to be someone a country that i wanted to take this role to take the leadership of the world coming into their territory to territory and israelis only part of that. So it's very much I would say affiliated with the nature of the and this is why think we didn't see This reapportionment with other our states and on the same level for example with sudan because dan we didn't have many platforms in which we could Be on the same spot. It's interesting because you say. Uae has been advancing this role where this image of itself For years already and that to my mind raises the question of you. Know the the push monir. The israeli agreement with the u. as being portrayed as this great diplomatic breakthrough brought to us by benjamin netanyahu donald trump. And now what. I'm wondering from you is is it really. Was it really all their breakthrough in their achievement. Or is this part of a more consistent policy that the ua has been developing over recent years before trump for example. Maybe with netanyahu support. Because he's been around for a lot longer right. It's exactly that and to continue the last point. So do you became a hub. Because he wants to be a regional power not less than that and it's important to understand in order to really grasp the reason for this these hub..

Half of two thousand twenty and as our listeners know the tel aviv review is holding a special series examining israel's relationship with the eu and european countries with their generous support. Our guest. Today is an expert on the one thing that everybody is talking about in these parts. The great detente between israel and parts of the arab world. Dr marin saga is a researcher and lecturer in the department of geography and environmental studies at the university of haifa focusing on political and social boundaries. The history of borders in the arab world and the geopolitics of the gulf states. One is also a policy fellow at the israeli institute for regional. Foreign policies disclosure also affiliated there. She researches the cooperation between israel and the united arab emirates. They're we'll be discussing her various articles and papers on this topic morons ago. Welcome to the show. Hi donna thank you for having me. You've spent time in the gulf And i want you to try to give us a broad picture of some of the political dynamics in the gulf it's a sort of distinct part of the arab world In arabic we call it the highly g nter. What does the political landscape of this region look like right so we usually portrayed him as a six countries on the one umbrella the arab gulf states. But there's actually a big difference between one st in other if we talk for example about a man so on is very different. If first of all it's It has a heterogeneous society much more than the other in our gulf states. And now we know that the The ruler sutan change six months ago and And i think that this is It has one of the reasons for The maybe the setback or the fact that we still don't hear anything from the money side it has to do. With the fact that is this is a new ruler in the region and still needs to solidify his His rule or legitimacy which is interesting because if we think about just before the april twenty nineteen elections all of a sudden tanya who surprise. Visit right to oman. And we don't hear about it anymore right and death was under this who've done caboose regime and now we talk about in housatonic. He really needs to base his legitimacy Then we have. If we're going geographically we have the u. e but we're going to talk about it so much these shows i'm going to qatar for example so cutter We know that it has different islamic landscape and in the region We might see them is the more radical voice With there is a for example. Yoko call dowie mosque's situated there and they have the political wing of hamas and they are affiliated with the muslim but on the same on the same level the deed host the israeli our diplomatic representatives until two thousand and nine so it is a very interesting country and it's still negotiates with israel In in issues concerning the palestinian iran. Ah then we have the helaine. Bahrain is small country. we'd also heterogeneous population we have sunnis and cheese and There are challenges is much much more Acute than the other countries. And we'll see that. I think even in the near future when israelis will be interested to cooperate to collaborate with this country. It they will face much more many more difficulties than for example we the uae. That's what i think we have kuwait. Kuwait is a neutral country It does not want to negotiate newsreel until now by any means because it chose a great support for the palestinians and it it also It it belongs to the countries that are that says. Iran is a threat also itself but still it doesn't mean that shared enemy in kuwait case is Platform for Joining forces with israel. So that's kuwait oman as we said earlier. Oman is and not really in the gulf and not really with iran. It talks with everyone. it really Plays the player of the bridge off the arbitrator between the forces. So he's a very interesting country to look at and of course of course above all we have the we have saudi arabia. Saudi arabia is a very interesting country to us because it's the most important country in the arab muslim world and it seems dead. Everyone are now looking at saudi era to see what will be the next step. Will there be joining this party if you can call it so and And try to bring their own power to the region to tap this important step. Well this is fascinating because we have to. I think tracks that we need to understand. One is a little bit deeper within that political landscape. I wanna understand the kind of cooperative interests and and differences between those states and their alignment with each other. And i also want of course to talk about the israel tracks so let. Let's just stay with their internal relations. How do those different countries breakdown in terms of their own relationships. Can you point to alliances or differences right so we have the known alliance familiar alliance between saudi arabia. The united our rates and behind. We can aid to that. More countries that are not situated in the gulf such as sudan such as egypt and jordan. They're all part of this alliance this coalition. Sometimes they call it sometimes. Much deeper alliance. We so there are Joining forces in the war against yemen in the In diplomatic steps against iran. And india's d did you succeed. Gulf corporation conceal the very much aligned with each other and have cutter on the other hand. This is A very very old hostility in hostile environment. I would say between cutter and the gulf states but We didn't hear about this acidity until two thousand and seventeen when the boy coat. was announced between the u. ee saudi arabia and qatar once the historic depth of that competition or hostility. You put us at hostility. Right so Competition stability is very very important question because In my interpretation it's much more is a competition and what the other soon as trade States the the saudis in behind trying to portray now is to draw an imaginary boundary between The good guys in bed guys between the moderate countries and the radical country naming kuwait. And we all know that it's something that is open to many computations. Wait let me get this straight. Saudi arabia is in the moderate category. This is how they portray themselves in the last two three four five years. Gotcha this is something that Mohammed bin salman the current ruler and actually the crown prince is Is working hard to brand the country as the moderate one. This is why for example..

Oh, absolutely ass San Diego's changing the city school grading system. You can now turn and stuff whenever you want. Yeah deadlines are a white person things. It will not affect their academic grade it will. So late, projects will be reflected on your citizenship grade, not your academic Chris. So you know that's interesting. So my my son's in a private school now because I want him to be in a classroom and the teacher said that all the students coming from public schools have. So much trouble adjusting to the fact that when we have homework, we expect you to actually get it done and turn it in and it always takes him a long time to get used to that. Yeah and I, I didn't even realize that that. My son was in the habit of when we were in the habit of it, it was always kind of a suggestion. And now they like the you know here's your math assignment for tomorrow you're supposed to if you don't have it in for the next day, you lose points, which is the way it was when I was a kid too. But is that something all the kids who come from public school have to adjust to cultural change of your expected actually get your homework done. Not Good. That's not good. Oh, absolutely. Not School is training for life. It is not for its own sake but things like. No longer will like a yearlong average. Determine your grade because they think that punishes slow starters. That's interesting to me. That's intriguing. I don't hate that idea if you if it takes you while, but you finally master the subject the fact that the first test you are still completely befuddled by. That's an interesting thing. I'm willing to discuss that. But things like turning in work on time and classroom behavior will not count towards your grade anymore boy well, there's there's a vote for. Get your kids out of public space. That's rough. Get him out. That's rough. So Does Not Count Not only can they do anything about it? They can't even give you a bad grade because you can get a bad citizenship grade. It's What's their salary? Their academic great I don't know. Go Unified, school district veep Richard Serra says. This is part of our honest reckoning is a school district. If we're actually going to be an anti-racist school district, we have to confront price gets is like this that have gone on for years and years in other words, they will identify things that affect the the grades of any non white students, and they will eliminate those as a factor including four the white students. So procrastinators like ourselves would be off the hook. Yeah, which would help me either that the worst thing school could have done for me what Oh my God I'd sue them. If, they had done.

"The film. As we mentioned, it's a pretty high power association between a very charismatic individual and I would argue the nine seventeen is a highly charismatic car in fact. Steve. was famous for upstaging his co stars especially early in his career in film and I would argue if you watch Lamont, the nine seventeen actually upstages him. The fourth thing on the nine seventeen is just speed people love sheer speed and the nine seventeen set numerous speed records in seventy vic. Elford was the first person to look Lamont at one hundred, fifty, mile an hour average speed in the nine seventeen, seventy, one, they were pushing something over. Two hundred forty miles an hour down the Malzahn Straight and at SPA in seventy one, our Gulf cars average speed was one, hundred, fifty, four miles an hour for a thousand kilometers, and that includes the time the car stationary in the pits and federal Rodriguez set the lap record at one hundred and sixty two miles an hour on a public road. That's the fastest sports car race ever run and I doubt that record will ever be beaten. Jay this is an incredible overview of an incredible car putting it into context. Probably everybody listening to this show as seen the recent film for versus Ferrari, and of course, the Ford GT and the Ferrari three thirty s of the period were remarkable cars but they essentially became antiques wants the nine seventeen hit the scene. It changed the game for everybody didn't the funny thing is the nine seventeen in a way also grew out of the Ford. Versus Ferrari period because the FAA theoretically was not only worried about the sheer speed of the GT forties with their seven leader big block American engines but also people tend to think that the French maybe weren't too happy about the Americans coming over and winning them on the way they did with a kind of a crushing display of money and horsepower. So the FAA changed the rules after Gurney and foyt one in sixty seven in the mark four. The FAA change the rules and said for sixty eight you've gotta come down to three liter prototype, which was the same as a formula one motor, but they left the door open to a quote unquote sports car series produced sports. Car could be up to five years, John Wire and the Gulf team carried on with. GT, forty with a small block because the GT forty, they had already built more than fifty. So it was approved from a homologation point of view and they could continue to race the GT forty with the two, eighty nine. Yeah. So the golf team went onto win lomb again, sixty eight and sixty nine with their GT forties and Porsche in sixty eight. Of course, came out with a three liter prototype the nine hundred eight which had invested a lot in an thought was going to be very successful and it was successful a lot of drivers like that car. They're a terrific cars however at the end of sixty eight, the Gulf. Team had won the championship for Ford, the Manufacturers Championship because Lamont counted for more points than any of the other races. The Gulf team had used all three chassis. He's during the season whereas Porsche had built somewhere around forty or more racing cars for their racing effort in sixty eight so that I think became a concern for ferry Porsche just amount of money that or show is spending on the other hand Ferdinand. Win The FAA changed the rules and said okay, we'll bring it down to twenty five cars for group four, five liter homologation Ferdinand. Had that light bulb moment said wait a minute we're building these cars anyway why can't we just go ahead and build twenty five cars all at once and will get a molestation approval for a five litre sports racer based on our nine, and that's really how the nine seventeen project got started. Let's jump off and help me understand and those listeners who may not have a full taxonomy of nine seventeen under their belt. There are so damn many of them what are all the various you talk about short? Tails and long tails and spiders in these evil canam cars and even a sixteen cylinder prototype at one time, and let's talk about the Gulf cars because that is what your books about. The first twenty, five cars that were bill actually came with two tales. You could have a short tail or a long tail. The Tales were detachable and you could run them either in a short tail or long tail form. The problem was the car was highly unstable..

The Old Spanish trail wasn't really trail in the time of the Spanish conquistadors. There was no existing trail which I wondered about but this is a trail that links up some of the old all Spanish possessions. And so it goes as you said from Saint Augustine Florida all the way and I think you said Santa Fe and actually goes all the way to San Diego Geico so San Diego. I mean that's coast to coast right there but again not really one that the old Spanish Keke stores would have traveled. There is a Spanish trail trail that they did travel.

I mean when you're going to the south you're thinking biscuits or you should be at least as we mentioned shrimp and grits but biscuits are something that a lot of restaurants have and there's a place called greenhouse on porter and porter is the name of a street street and emotions springs but it's a greenhouse that is an actual greenhouse and. This restaurant has a different sweet and savory very biscuit every day you can literally go there every day and have something different. It's it's really phenomenal. And they just concluded limited every year they do a turnament just like NCAA basketball tournament where they start with sixty four biscuits and every Thursday has day they have a vote and people vote on which biscuits best than last week. They had the final two and selected a winner of their Grand Prize Biscuit Biscuit for the year and what biscuit one for the or do I don't know I don't know I know a friend of mine from the area had her biscuit in the semi finals finals and I think she did so. These are ones that people are submitting. Not just these are the residents. The visitors people people online will submit their recipes. And they make them. I believe every Thursday for ten weeks. They'll have this tournament in. You can go there any day and ordered their sweet and savory biscuit they have craft teas and coffees and things like that but I mean the biscuits are the stars. So that's a place that I really love for breakfast and even launch if you can up a little bit later ocean springs. Is the headquarters of the. I believe it's called hold the Gulf islands. National seashore okay. It's part of the National Park System. So there's there's a string of barrier islands along that part of the golf and so it extends into Florida and I think that skips Alabama so off the coast of Pensacola. There's some I know like. Aw off the coast of Pensacola and Destin. There's part of the Gulf islands national seashore. And then there's some barrier islands in Mississippi and so the headquarters is their notion spring. You could spend days there if you're really into national parks hiking and kayaking and visiting the the visitor percenter and then going out to the barrier islands. So are there regular boat rides that go out to. I see what Deer Island Princeton right off the coast there. And do I go hiking out of the islands or Kayak out to them or how. What is the plan here? They're like five miles offshore. That's right so I. I did go to deer island in October. It was the last ferry three of the of the year. I believe that I was on. I was on a chart but there were people that went out earlier. I believe at ten o'clock they go out and it takes about about an hour to get there and then there's say three o'clock it comes back so you can spend a couple of hours out there pristine beaches gotten beaches on the mainland. Had are really really nice but when you go out there they're different beaches there Christine but also natural. I found a Pelican beak skeleton. If you will less time I was out there so you may not find that on the mainland ages. But out there you don't see the litter and the things like that that you may see on other beaches but you also see things that are coming in from the Gulf because that is the barrier area to the mainland. There are national park shuttles that go out there. There are private boats settled. Take you out there. You can go out there yourself. That artists that I mentioned Walter Anderson. He actually lived on deer island for part of the air so he would go out there on his rowboat for his meditation. Zan in an inspiration for a few months and then he would create are based on his stale there. Well and I said five show dear Allen's only a mile off shore so that in a row boat is a little less daunting absolutely. That can't remember all the names of the island. Deer Island Horn Island Petit Bois island ship island ship island I believe is the one that Walter Anderson Wentao got it with Fort Massachusetts on ship island looks like an Old World War Two award who was Civil War Fort Bragg Fort I believe it was pre civil war and then it was used in the civil war and then it was retrofitted for various wars. We can assume that it wasn't the confederates that built a fort called Fort Massachusetts. You can't assume that absolutely yeah there's a series of forts like dry Tortuga. They're off key west that were built after the war of eighteen twelve to try and protect the US coast. That's exactly what I remember. It was built in the twenties or thirties or even later. But yeah that totally makes sense. One of my last visits there. I stumbled upon my affinity for these live live oak trees that are all over the southern United States. I discovered two places in ocean springs. One is called Rushton. Oak R U S. K. I. N. Ruskin Oak and they believe that is the largest oak or the oldest Dunkin Mississippi outside of the Friendship Oak. which we could talk about later later? But I think it's three hundred and fifty years old and it's on private property but you can walk on Ruskin Street and take a look at it and take pictures and so forth. There is also an area of ocean springs called Lovers Lane and it's dripping with these old hundreds of years old oaks and really nice area. I think even people that go to ocean springs all the time and know about adult know about this law area call lovers lane. So that's what I call one of my hidden gems of of the area. Ken what else we can move on if you want. I'm concerned you know I'll I'll regret not listening everything I can think of an ocean springs in in terms of things to do. I WANNA emphasize a little more things to do. Because we've talked about places deed places to stay and the beach. Are there other things that I'm do doing during the day. The national seashore that I talked about pushing springs is a good place to be. Because you're right across the bridge from Biloxi See. You can their visit their museums and things that do that. We'll talk about later. So if you want to stay in ocean springs zero at your base to go visit Insect Pascagoula in Biloxi. That's worth it to other things to do in ocean springs kayaking the by us. They have a pretty good bicycle all system through town so cut you can either bring your own bike or renovate and explored the Old Spanish trail that we talked about which does parallel L. A.. Lot of their bike trails that they have established. Okay excellent will then you wanted to get us to Biloxi and this is the beginning of the longest beach that you were talking about Dennis correct wreck you must have looked at up a well. I know I was just guessing from the map. There were only certain places that could have been. I believe the beach is man made and I kinda to kill myself that I don't know that it's kind of like Waikiki. Hawaii where it's a man made beach it wasn't there originally but the army corps or someone built this beach and I think it's twenty seven continuous miles up. Sorry that's the longest beach. The longest beach.

"I consider part of festival. It's called Maas point joint. And in Moss point there are some gorgeous hundreds of years old oaks these live oaks that represent at the south to a Lotta people. They're all over this. Little section of town called Maas Point. Let's love driving around there. It's along the Marsh Franz runs and you'll find wonderful. Oh Cowley's and oak trees. I recommend that as a place along the old Spanish trail which I don't know if you've heard of gold Spanish trail trail that goes from from Jacksonville. I believe to Santa Fe. I would recommend maybe spending running a day there and doing some of those things that I just hit upon. There's a lighthouse. That's right at the bridge when you're coming from the West so if you're you were coming from the other part of Coastal Mississippi you'll see a lighthouse. You can climb that certain days and times. I love seeing the different oaks around there. You could do a couple little. It'll scenic drives but some of the towns. We're gonNA talk about later. We'd spend more than one day at but here maybe an overnight maybe the day trip depending on what churned tenor areas where to next as were heading west the next town of significance will hit is called ocean springs and it is simply one of my favorite towns probably in the world. It has a key West vibe that has a Carmel vibe a year from California Key West vibe. I think Party town you say Carmel Vibe. That's a very very different vibe. That's a that's a wine sipping and I love Caramel but slightly pretentious. This is the place where people got in trouble for having ice cream out on the street corners and things. He's like that so real fan there so I don't know how you mix those to me. I'm ECLECTIC key west and Carbel had a baby. It's Ocean sprigs quote me on that. Okay you you've got to explain them with. I mean so. Ocean Springs Mississippi. Oh It's a quintessential southern town. It's very romantic at has a main street called Washington Avenue and it's dripping with those Under- year old. Okay with the little bit of Moss sonnet class. Yeah and so much so that they're cracking the sidewalk. The sidewalks folks are uneven because of the roots of these oak trees. It's a very artistic community. So you'll find art galleries downtown the Anderson Family. He's very prominent in this area. And Walter Anderson was a preeminent artist from the nineteen thirties through the sixties. It's these I believe much so that he hosted William Faulkner and people like that they would come there to do retreats an ocean springs. There's also also his brother Peter Anderson who has a very prominent potter. So it's it's the vibe is very artistic and very festival oriented and when you go across the bridge from ocean springs across the it's called Luxy Bay then you're going to Biloxi and so you got the casinos and the big city. If you will so this is the step sister counterpart to the big city like Carmel. To Monterey or Key West is to Miami that's why you make these parallels you're not gonNA spend a lot of chain restaurants in ocean springs. You'RE GONNA find a lot of fantastic chefs running there on restaurants and things like that. Okay anything else. We're going to do in ocean springs. There's some history I wanNA talk about. Think it was about eight years ago someone found out capone's owns wallet in one of the Pie. Use Ocean springs was her elder Rivera. Possibly someday fishing okay. There's a lot of bridges and by US and things like that and so someone was fishing or crabbing and pulled up Al Capone's wallets so this was won't UNAV- hideouts and you'll do you. Google fact checking but thirties fifties. I don't know exactly. I haven't been nine hundred. Twenty S. Probably During Prohibition Prohibition started did twenty years ago almost to the day is started in twenty twenty and lasted until one thousand nine hundred thirty three that I don't have to Google for uh-huh Al Capone hung out there. There's a an an I don't even want to call it a hotel that it's a twelve room in and it's called the the roost in ocean springs but architectural digest named at the best designed hotel in the South the United States a couple of years ago so when it Elton the phenomenal accolade that it got. But it's the beautiful beautiful. An and the connection to Al Capone is that they have a speakeasy the type bar like a lot of places are having and it's designed with Al Capone murals and themes and so forth. But it's also a phenomenal bar with craft cocktails and so forth like that. So that place is called the roost and I love staying there. That's one of the places are like an ocean springs okay. Another historical throwback is a place called Gulf Hills G. U. L. F. Gulf. It also has a golf course and a conference center. But it's where Elvis hung out in the summers of I believe the years one thousand nine hundred fifty one to fifty seven so every summer Elvis retreated to one hotel and he stayed there for the entire summer with his entourage and I was very fortunate to stay in the suite that he stayed in a couple couple of months ago. And they don't have the rights to use his name so they call it the love me tender. Love me sweet. It's a three bedroom hotel suite and it's on top of the lobby and the registration area at this golf course and hotel and conference centre. saw there are three bedrooms. forbath say wet bar living room and it's all designed with Elvis Memorabilia and pictures of when he stayed stayed there and gold record replicas and things like that so that's a couple of historical things about ocean springs. Also I believe this place Gulf hills was the the site of the Very First Ladies Professional Golf Tournament. I remember reading that somewhere. Okay so I just mentioned to places you could stay so you can stay in love me. Tender love be sweet. You happen to be traveling with an entourage of people stay there. The roost is another great property. And there's two other properties. I really love staying ocean springs and one is rate on Washington Avenue that downtown that I mentioned and it's called the end at Ocean Springs. It's it's a very very small boutique. Hotel they only have two suites. But it's right there in the heart of downtown and one sweet is closer to do the main street of Washington one step back so depending on which we stay on your two steps from the main street or your ten steps apps from the main street but that property elegantly designed then it's actually a sister property of the roost so the same people manage it and they're both very architectural a significant and and popular and romantic all right ocean springs and I would probably recommend someone stay there for two or three nights. The Walter Anderson Museum is right there in downtown on. It's fourteen steps from the end that I talked about and you can go there and see the the works of Walter Anderson to his the artists that I mentioned before and one of the local heroes. It's really a fascinating knitting art museum. visit some of the shops that are along the street. It's probably about a half quarter to a half mile to get to the waterfront front. So when you get the waterfront and you have amazing sunsets and sunrises a couple of outfits in town that will rent kayaks or sopped soon so you can get out on the water and we'll talk about restaurants. Sure one of my favorite restaurants in the United States is called vestige so it's V. E. S. T. I g. g. e. and it's right there and ocean springs. The chef is named Alex Perry P. E. R. R. Y.. And he was nominated last year for a James Beard Award for the chef in the south or southeastern United States. I don't know how they're categories. Exactly he's one of those chefs that really pushes the envelope trying ingredients. He's married to a Japanese woman so he's always bringing an international spices and flavors and things. It's like that and his restaurants been there about five years so he admitted the first years. I'm just surviving and trying to get people to recognize who I am and then in your to your three trying different things. He's like now I'm just GonNa like gotTa do whatever I can to shock people and throw things out there and see what what what's l.. Except so it's truly one of the most innovative places I've been to and in the United States and when you say innovative what kind of the things did you have. That were innovative where you were expecting something. Savory there would be a sweet thing in there or he would be introducing some spices. And you wouldn't wouldn't recognize what it is and you know that he has a Japanese wife and see us so Mike. Oh this is so far eastern Asian spicy like. Oh No. It's something that I from Iran or some Persian spice that he picked up somewhere. You don't expect to find this and the southeastern United States definitely not in Mississippi. Yep So have used ringing flavors and concepts that that are unexpected. No honestly I would say in this region in the world. I expect fried. And and that's a reasonable expectation. Shrimp and grits are something that every restaurant's going to happen. Everyone's going to have a different take on it and it's good.

"That this the notion is related to whether these glue current systems are creating sort of gradients that support what we in meteorology costs Cyclo genesis or the formation formation of cyclones. So an interesting discussion here along the same lines and perhaps Again may not be an area of your expertise but are there any impacts from your Lens of climate change and the loop current system. Well you know that that's always a subject of of great interest but as I say this Relatively little data in the in the deep oceans to be able to to tell whether that that actually is the case I mean we certainly know that the oceans are warming and You know that's something that is true right. It's no but but the question of what that warming is doing and how that affects the loop current at this stage. We don't really know. And I'd like to state the there have been many many good studies on the loop current and but the problem is they have not been sustained. They they you know maybe a study two or three years was done and not sustain what the Academy report that has been recently published published suggests that there should be a ten year campaign so we can really understand the loop the loop forms and and the the timing of it is anywhere from say ten to fourteen months so you don't get many shots over three a period an Anna over ten years you know you might get four or five opportunities to test with measurement what is going on why the loop separates. This isn't important. I you know I want to kind of deviate a bit here from the topic to just talk about science because we're we're to scientists and I think the public coffin may not know the full lens of how science is done and how we achieve and gain knowledge and moved science forward. One way that we do it is through studies and grants and whatnot. What not to scientists at universities and NGOs and perhaps even private corporations but one of the aspects of much of the physical sciences work whether we're talking meteorology oceanography? Your climate is the need for long-term observations. Now Tony for example. I spent a good part of my career before coming to the University of Georgia Reja at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center working on large satellite missions to measure rainfall from space. And one of the reasons we did that as we want it long term trends an rainfall around the globe so we understand changes to the water cycle changes in precipitation intensity and we are now up to a fairly significant sort of record We launched a couple of satellites in nineteen ninety eight and several years later. We're starting the bill that long-term record and I hear you saying that. We need similar. long-term longterm records in the Gulf of Mexico studied the Gulf Gulf loop current which brings me. I guess to your understanding Gulf Systems. Grant Tell us a little bit about this grant. I and I really want to dive into it because your specific grand. This is a system of eight projects. I understand totaling ten point three million dollars but your particular part of the the project addict is a passive Gulf of Mexico loop current observations from high frequency radar. So tell us a little bit about that overarching project and in your specific diffic- research okay so the The understanding the Gulf systems grants which you also known as you Gos- one there were thirty one proposals and they funded eight projects And the whole goal was support research and observation for To improve proved the understanding of the loop and one of the things. That's really interesting. And what we have is about one hundred eighty Radars around the United States. These radars are high frequency. Radars about five megahertz there her They have a transmit antenna and a receive antenna and they basically just bounce a signal off surface waves. They can look at about a hundred and eighty miles one hundred and eighty kilometers. I'm sorry about a hundred and thirty miles and and get information. Nation on current speed and direction one of the interesting aspects of this. Is that in order to expand our ocean observations nations and really understand the loop we need some idea of the current speeds direction excetera on the inflow. That's the water going in between the Yucatan Straight and Cuba and the outflow through the Florida Straits between Florida and and Cuba uh-huh what's called the Cuban Straits but never mind and And so there's been a strategy and my group. We formed into a an association. Called the loop consortium and that consists of Texas am. I Am University Rutgers University Miami University of Southern Mississippi and USF which is University of south. Florida we he put proposals with a similar data system to put radars number one on oil platforms. which is a subject in its own right number? Two two on the Dry Tour tougas in the Florida Straits looking south and then my group would pudding radars radars. A on in Mexico on the place called and Puerta Morales which is in the north life part of the town peninsula and those are going to look across the strait and our hope actually. And we've been working with the Department of Meteorology in. Cuba is to put one radar in Cuba looking west to meet up with the radars in Mexico and another eight hour and Vada looking north to complete a whole program of of Surface measurements in that area We have intentions with rutgers to move all the way down into the Caribbean and then supplement that with a a program of gliders or were underwater drones that we own that that's very interesting. Interestingly those underwater drones we had some colleagues from my university the skidway institute that are using gliders gliders to look at ocean heat content in hurricanes so so we've actually whether listeners should be familiar with the concept of these underwater robotic body gliders. I want to circle back to your radar because I I have some familiarity with radar because Some of my earlier Graduate Training Within Radar Meteorology at Florida state and typically in weather. We use what we call see band or s band radar so they're usually five or ten centimeter radars To sort a probe the the precipitating systems storms etc.. You mentioned that these are fairly high frequency radars. I WanNa Kinda stay. Stay there for a moment just to do a little radar meteorology for the weather geeks listeners. Here so you talked in terms of frequency and I was talking in terms of wavelength but these systems systems are much higher frequency than the types of typical weather. Radars is that correct. Well that's correct. That's why understanding I'm not a A radar expert at any way. I use these tools to Measure currents and.

Speaking of Veterans Today we're going to talk about Gulf War illness well recently was watching a television show about unexplained illnesses people have these go to doctor after doctor and have test after test nobody can figure out what's wrong with them and a physician has decided to take it upon herself to choose these certain people and put their symptoms out to the world for professionals to gaze upon that information and see what their take on that situation might be in what help they might bring the individual it's a good show but there was one where they interviewed an in a gentleman who was no longer able to function he came back from the Gulf War totally different than he went now we know that's not unusual for our veterans who go off to War I don't think they ever comeback who they were when they left how could they be you just change life changes us no matter what we're always different from year to year in in everyday life but when we've been sent to a country to fight to defend the United States or defend your country wherever you might live you come back a different person it has to happen but these folks come back with unexplained illnesses and was one gentleman had just depleted everything he had trying to discern what was going on with him he could not remember things could not function he could not hold down a job he was having lots of pain and discomfort just was leading a miserable existence and was losing everything little by little because he could not work he'd built up quite a bit of debt and sold everything they had to try to get the help he needed no one could figure out what was going on with the man so his story was put out by this physician I told you about on the television shows and more and more came back as Gulf war illness and he was a Gulf War veteran that's quite an interesting thing I've been reading about it and what we know is that votes with who were exposed a who were in the Gulf War were exposed to toxins that had serious effect on the neurons in their brain says one third of the vets which is two hundred fifty thousand people are at risk of having Gulf war illness is seems that there were buried rockets that were exploded intentionally and that by the United States aces I understand and when those rockets were exploded that rocket leaked out into the air seat aw is E. T. I. O. N. which is a gas and people were inhaling this gas it changed the white matter of the brain and there there's not a treatment for this they don't know what to do about it and then they also burned oil fields in the smoke was inhaled from those oilfields and is just that's just two of the very many things that these folks were exposed to their that caused issues within their body and so they're calling it Gulf war illness much like those who are in Vietnam that were exposed to Agent Orange they have all kinds of side effects and the the least of which is not heart disease I mean schemic heart disease is rampant among veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange my brother-in-law being one of those people so now we know that the folks who are in the Gulf war expose to the c time gas or the smoke from the burning oilfields have all kinds of problems and there is a Gulf War registry health exam that they can go through and register themselves but this is what they have determined that they do they have to show at least a ten percent disability and have symptoms that have occurred for at least six smart six months after being southwe West Asia theater of military operations and they have to register by twelve thirty one two thousand twenty one we're really not that far away from that that cutoff time but what are the symptoms what are they seeing in people well fatigue and headaches joint pain indigestion insomnia dizziness respiratory disorders and guess what dementia sure enough that is being listed as one of the problems these folks are having this gentleman I told you about was having serious dingy couldn't remember how to do his job or how to function in life and was needing to be led throughout his day by his wife which meant she couldn't work she couldn't leave him alone and it was it was quite a lot so these folks hopefully within B assuming least a ten percent rating disability and can receive via disability compensation so the chronic fatigue where does it help is one of the symptoms no matter what they do they just have no energy fibromyalgia if you're familiar with fibromyalgia fiber meaning must so out algebra meaning pain so it's muscle pain of my sister has fibromyalgia in muscles you have muscles in places you're not thinking about like your heart is a muscle in severe pain in the heart that resembles a heart attack but it's not it's that heart muscle constricting and causing severe pain or it may be the muscles in the arms or the legs or wherever insomnia and morning stiffness headaches memory loss gastrointestinal issues such as irritable Bowel Syndrome Branston and then undiagnosed illnesses where they have no clue why they're having thanks unusual weight loss or they have cardiac cardiological disease and they don't know why they have that menstrual disorders psyche. autry problems skin disorders respiratory disorders sleep disorders sounds like fun to me what about to you but if you know someone who I was in the Gulf War and they are experiencing some of these symptoms..
