More Former Aides Accuse New York Governor Cuomo Of Sexual Harassment

"The pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo transformed into a fully fledged TV star. Let's remember some basic context and fax society functions. Everything works. There's going to be food in the grocery stores. Propelled into the firmament by his daily Corona virus, free things that reassured an anxious, leaderless public hears Ellen de generous and Trevor. Noah. You call yourself a Cuomo sexual and I e. I agree with you. I feel like I'm a homosexual to it genuinely has been very inspiring and refreshing to see. A leader Like Cuomo, new fans declared their adoration in Tic tac videos, Means and song, the Great Randy Rainbow Stranded in my bedroom. Then there he give you an update as to where we are today. Mature me treatment of the governor, of course, extended to many news networks like CNN, where Chris Cuomo asked the tough questions Now you know, I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the love governed. I'm wondering if that's bleeding into your demeanor. It all making you a little soft on the president. Love girl. I've always I've always been a soft guy. I am the love government. Cool, dude and loose mood. You know that. But in the past few weeks, Cuomo's TV persona has faltered. Report from the state attorney general and a court order found that the official count of deaths of nursing home residents due to the virus was nearly doubled The figure first reported by the Cuomo administration. Plus, as I write this three women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, some in awkward, geeky detail, including two former aides. Alex Preen Stuff writer. The New Republic recently wrote the article. The Andrew Cuomo Show has lost the plot. Welcome back to the show. Thank you so much. I'm glad to be here. You know, two people who have closely read about the governor in the newspapers over the years as opposed to TV. This version of Cuomo, this bully in cynical operator isn't Knew How have the media changed the message? If you are a long time consumer of mainly print news about state politics, you had untiring chronology of Cuomo scandals even if you forgot some of the details. That didn't necessarily get a lot of play on TV news. Keeping up with Cuomo news over the last decade, has also required being familiar with reporters from The Albany Times Union or or newspapers and Rochester. You know these places where the Albany bureau is still really important and a big part of their beat. And a lot of that news, the complexity of it and specifically, the way it fit. A pattern of behavior with Cuomo was usually too difficult to get across, and especially in like a short television segment. I know a lot about this because I actually listened to the local radio station that produces the show. That's how come I know about the Moreland Commission. But you said this story never made it to prime time because it's too complicated. Absolutely, Yeah. All of the past. Few governors have gotten in trouble. Cuomo was running as the guy is going to come clean it up. And so he sets up a commission called Moreland Commission. He says they have the authority to investigate corruption and all of its forms here in Albany and they will be independent. I will not meddle. I will not interfere. He's shuts them down less than a year later because they start going after people too connected to him essentially and people who worked on the commission. They went to The New York Times, and they said Cuomo was meddling. He stopped us and we were getting too close to his allies, so that stuff was out there. But when the story made it toe TV news, it was stripped of the level of detail necessary to understand what had happened and why I like in this interview with Charlie rose months after it came out that Cuomo's office Had hobbled the aforementioned Moreland Commission governor Andrew Cuomo is reestablishing a family dynasty in New York politics, though he's had to get used to criticism. Of his leadership style. You micromanage. They say that delegate more right and you're not transparent. They say then. And they say you don't suffer fools and you know, Yeah. And you're not You push too hard. Yeah. You micromanage? Yes. All of that. You plead guilty or not guilty. You can't have one without the other. I plead guilty like not only was was Rose asking and easily Dodge question. He was almost ventriloquism. The answer's four Andrew Cuomo, right. It's like the old job interview joke. What's your biggest flaw? You know, I'm too hard on myself. You take issue with the defenders of Cuomo who say that Hey, His most important audience. New Yorkers always have known about the governor's bullying quality. That sharp operator with the even sharper elbows and all of that. And they like it third, this idea that he has cruise to reelection twice. They must know who this guy is and support him. And that's why I draw that distinction between corn on the TV character and new favorite Cuomo's, Because if we have listened to a few clips of him on television He's not berating anyone. He's joking around with his brother. He's performing empathy for victims of Covert 19 or Hurricane Sandy. Is Daddy complete with the dad each exactly. He's New York's dad now. It seems that Cuomo has been able to keep his TV persona and his newspapers persona separate. Why are they colliding? Now? For a few reasons, one important one is that people Do not want to go on the record attacking Andrew Cuomo because of the power he holds in the state, especially elected Democrats. What happened this time is that Ron Kim and Assembly member Received a bullying call from Andrew Cuomo for speaking to the New York Post about the nursing home situation. Kim had been at a briefing where a top Cuomo aide said Yeah, This looks bad that we reported the wrong number of people who had died in nursing homes. But you have to understand, like we need didn't want it to become a story basically, like they were like Trump Trump DOJ is gonna make a thing of it Trumps could make a thing about that's why we covered it up. So anyway, Ron Kim went to the post and gave it on the record quote to the post about that meeting. That was the subject of the call where Cuomo allegedly sat. According to Kim, I'll destroy you. In normal Albany affairs. What happens next is either Kim shuts up. Kim goes on background to The New York Post again because Cuomo as in other cases, finds an irregularity in Kim's background. And implies that that could be used against him. And what he would end up doing is at a press conference Bring up Ah, years old story about how Kim had flip flopped on Is Bill about nail salons, and he would outright say Kim was crooked right after Cuomo does that press conference. There's a story on CNN about how Cuomo had made this phone call to Kim the day before, and that's not the kind of thing that legislators and Albany usually do when they get Implicitly or explicitly threatened by Cuomo. They don't call CNN and go on the record and say the governor threatened me. I think that Cuomo got away with it for so long because no one wanted to put their name. To descriptions of his behavior. But Kim, he knows well, I have a story. Now I have a compelling narrative in which I'm the hero in the governor's The villain and TV likes stories like that. And he ends up on the view. Tell us what happened after he called you or when he called you? Yeah, it was last Thursday night. I was about to bait my three kids when I received the call from the governor. He spent 10 minutes threatening my career and ordering me to issue a statement. They will be used to cover for the states that you wrote quote. If a politician acts as if he believes his voters experience politics is a television show, the best way to harm him is to make yourself a compelling character.

"Potasnik, Rev in the rabbi, where Faith matters 77 w A b c w ABC radio dot com. Welcome back on Rabbi Ghost Potassium. And I'm Reverend A. R. Bernard Way to continue our conversation with 55th, governor of the state of New York Governor David A Passion who I must say is respected by people on both sides of the aisle. And maybe there's a standard there that more people need to emulate the governor. We get calls. As you get causes everyone else does about the vaccine. Rollo. People are angry. They're frustrated. One side blames the other. What's your view on this? My view is that whenever you were doing a major distribution Whether the vaccines or perhaps the kind of relief that was needed after Hurricane Sandy and the kind of, uh uh Release that was needed in the delta after Hurricane Hurricane Katrina. You've got to have strong leadership from the executive levels because when a problem comes up, there's got to be one person who can make a decision. Not 50. And I think that's what's happened here. They started to roll the vaccines out as quickly as they could. They got cooperation from Federal Express and some of the other carriers. But they didn't have a system where When things go wrong, there could be some kind of redress. And because of it, we now have a situation where over the weekend New York City feel that it's run out of supplies. And Governor Cuomo is upset about this. And, um, the past administration said this was the role of the state. Yes, it is the role of the stage. But it was the federal government who gave the drug companies the latitude to go through some of the regulations more quickly to get the vaccine on the street. And coincidently. They should have been setting up the place for distribution. So I'm hoping that they will get some of the distribution services. The same way they got the transportation services to start distributing the virus. And for some reason, when I don't know why Some of these entities held back the vaccines because the people had to get vaccine three weeks later, they weren't sure they were gonna be there. That's never leadership is to hold anything back in a crisis such as this. Roll the dice. Passed them out, and we'll see what happens in the next few weeks. What could you do that you have to? You have to have the, uh you have to be in position. We have the authority to take that chance. Yeah, And even we have the vaccine. There are people who having problems navigating, you know, uh, through the process getting on these various websites finding a place that has the vaccine I mean the frustration level. Here we have. The good news is we finally have a vaccine. The bad news is, we can't get it to people who need it. Absolutely. And believe me this Virus is very serious. We've lost about 110 to 415,000 people right now. In our own country, we're going to get to half a million people. What number do we have to get to before? People realize that some of the extreme measures and yes. Some of the businesses that have been impaired and some of the Consumers that haven't be able to make the choices and the issue of restaurant closures. Although I do what I have read is that restaurant closures or not, is in dangerous as the gatherings people having at home. They might want to revisit that. Um, but this is serious. This is a serious virus. You know it. It's indicative of The danger of the climate that we're in with so much misinformation, disinformation that our society is filled with unbelief and skepticism about everything, even what's good for them, even what's going to help them. There is so a degree of skepticism attached to it is a wonderful path. You know when that, Reverend I actually Agree with people who I usually disagree with, but I think that perhaps The First Amendment is under a little bit of an attack. I mean, when people overtly encouraged violence that you can't run to yell fire in a movie theater, that's speech is this allowed Like some of people's opinions that I think may have been Somewhat curtailed is actually going to add to the acrimony, not subtract from it. Yeah, yeah, Yeah, absolutely. You know, there's a wonderful passage of Scripture in the Prophet Isaiah. Oh, that's the Hebrew Scriptures, Rabbi. Yes, Of course. We had to get it when truth is falling in the streets. Justice is turned backwards and equity cannot enter and boy that that apply to where we were today. That same profit, said Woe to those who call dark light light, dark people who say things that are so contrary to reality. I'm so furious that those who refused with masks when they were told over and over again. We have the max and some people try to find religion to justify you know with, say, God is blessing us protecting us. You don't have to wear the mask that so contrary to what we really believe that you know, there's a partnership that we have responsibilities as well. On Now we have people don't want to take the vaccine. God will help that my mother would say And who's gonna help until he helps? Yeah, You know, it's It's one of those situations today. Rabbi where When we have Governor Patterson on the air, we can go for an hour or two. You know that right? Because we're never at a loss for conversation, things that talking German Yeah. Okay. Yeah. No, I'm a good short, dark. Yeah. Thank you so much for being on the program today and what you were ever in rabbi. It's always great to talk to both of you.

NYSE Floor Reopens With Masks, Coronavirus Waivers and Handshake Ban

"Hurricane Sandy which weren't even close to this law and he is done with working from home. I am ready. I'm ready on a personal level. I'm ready to come back I. I've missed the floor. I've missed the interaction. I've been talking to our employees every day through zoom and conference calls and I've been talking to clients and I think everybody misses that. Everyone misses that that extra interaction of face to face communications. It'll be very different workday for him. And his colleagues journal reporter Alexander Povich covers exchanges and is with us to talk about the re opening of one of the last two trading floors in the world. Alex are the big changes will see on the exchange floor today. They're going to be many fewer traders a large chunk of the force population the so-called designated market makers who are in the middle of the floor at these posts that you often see in the backdrop of CNBC. Tv news broadcast for instance. They will not be there. They will be working remotely. The people coming in or the floor brokers who are going to be around the edges of the building where the four brokers have their booths. And of course they'll be wearing masks and talked to some exchange floor veterans about going back to work. How do they feel about that? Most of the ones I've spoken to are excited. They are aware of the risks. But they want to have their jobs back in many cases they basically can't do their jobs except there on the floor and there is trading that happens on the floor but it's also something of a stage for Wall Street. Tv networks have the sets there and the companies will do the colorful events when they have IPO's and they're trying to build buzz. How much of that showmanship aspect is behind? Why there's still an operating trading floor? In that sense I think the brand value and the image and the media stuff are a big reason why the floor is still open today. In Two thousand twenty. It's because it's just an iconic location lot of media organizations like the film from the floor companies having. Ipo's like to ring the bell at the NYSE. And I think the New York Stock Exchange has tried very hard to keep the floor open in part to continue that franchise the NYSE is one of the last exchanges in the world with the physical trading floor says human traders make the market more efficient and its new measures. Make it possible to reopen safely. Walk us through thinking of the exchange about the trading floor in the pandemic so the changes take an interesting stance with respect to the corona virus in the pandemic the other exchanges that still have trading floors Cme AND CBO CHICAGO. Both were quicker to close their floors and March when the coronavirus pandemic really started to take hold. The New York Stock Exchange by comparison was reluctant to close. Its floor and fact it only closed its floor after two people at the exchange Had confirmed infections. I think that that goes to show the degree to which the NYSE is attached to the floor as part of its model.

When Staying Home Isn't Safe: Domestic Abuse On The Rise Due To Coronavirus

"Corona virus versus fiction is sponsored by express. Vpn We've heard stories. Where survivors are saying. My relationship with emotionally abusive became physically abusive last night. We've heard stories from women whose partners were coming home and coughing on them and telling them that they were acting them with the coronavirus. That was Katie. Ray Jones the head of the national domestic violence hotline for most of us. Staying at home has been the safest way to protect ourselves from the krona virus but for others home can be a dangerous place worrying experts about what is happening behind closed doors. So what do we really know? And what can we do to help those? Who may be isolated and afraid? I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction in the past we've seen increases in domestic violence during times of crisis and stress. We've seen spikes in two thousand and eight during the Economic Crisis James Goggle. Yano is a former. Fbi agent and CNN's law enforcement analyst. He says this pandemic is putting victims in particularly vulnerable situation. We've seen spikes during national disasters like say Hurricane Katrina Hurricane. Sandy and we've also seen it during times of the Super Bowl major sporting events and look correlation doesn't always equal causation here. But there's a lot of factors at play in one of is. These victims are trapped in a cohabitation situation with the abuser. As stay at home orders went into effect in March. Several cities across the United States reported a steep increase in domestic violence calls as compared to last year. Cities like Seattle Portland and Boston have all reported increases in calls to hotlines or reports or arrests related to domestic violence in April Chicago. City officials told CNN the Illinois domestic violence hotline saw the highest daily call volume in. Its twenty year history. Meanwhile in other parts of the country calls to domestic abuse hotlines and reports to law enforcement have stayed flat or even declined experts. Worry that victim stuck at home with their abusers may not know how to get help one group that is working to assist victims of domestic. Violence is safe horizon based in New York City. They're one of the largest victim service organizations in the country. We work with victims of all crimes and abuse and that includes family. Violence Domestic Violence Child Abuse Sexual assault human trafficking elder abuse and we help people to heal and rebuild their lives areas weighing is the CEO of safe horizon. I started by asking her what she had been hearing for. People who need help during this pandemic when nobody's supposed to be out and about the choice to leave a situation or leave home is definitely complicated by concerns about getting. The virus others can include. Let's say the victim is someone? That had not been economically dependent on the Abuser. But now they've lost their job Maybe that's an economic dependence. That has now begun. Are there particular signs of an abusive situation? If that person doesn't seem to have the freedom to go where and when they want seems to have to account for every dollar or every place they go seems to be separated from loving relationships that used to be important to them in the relationship. You may experience all of those things and also threats and then of course every form of physical violence that people experience. But if someone is hurting you physically choking US spitting on you. You absolutely have a right to seek help into not expect that that behavior is normal. I imagine that the problem has worsened during this pandemic of both intimate partner. Violence Child Abuse. But I wonder do we know for sure I mean the because the reporting of this I imagine is is part of the challenge as well right. The story reporting is complicated in the first month of the stay at home orders. Here New York calls to our hotline. Were DOWN. That's for a couple of reasons. One people just prioritizing their Their health but another is an assumption. That help wasn't available and that is tragic because help is available. Are Hotline is functioning. The national domestic violence hotline is functioning. Police are responding to calls were able to provide a tremendous range of services. Virtually and as the word has gotten out about that our calls have increased child abuses a different because those reports come from teachers who are mandated reporters and doctors. Those reports are down by seventy five percent over. The prior period is heartbreaking and tragic because the abuse cannot be down by seventy five percent. It means that teachers that would normally see something and be concerned about. It are not able to see that over revolt learning. Let me ask you though. Short of opening up. Are there other things that can be done to to address this issue specifically with child abuse? We've done research over. The years about Bystanders to child abuse people who may suspect that there's something abusive happening in a family and overwhelmingly members of the public. Say I wouldn't want to report that because I might be wrong. What if I'm wrong and it's really none of my business and my response to that is what if you're not wrong. What if you're right and so I would say if anyone listening to this? Podcast has a nagging suspicion. That child is not being treated right in their home. Find out where in your state you can call it in it. Just strikes me from a pragmatic sense that it might be challenging. If you're in an apartment you know with people and you're you're trying to see cal. But you're worried about stigma even within your own living situation or privacy concerns. What do you recommend for someone who who says I want to get help but you know frankly? I got someone listening in the next room. Try and get on the call or seek help. I recommend chat can be much more private and there are many mental health services available over chat. A large part of what we do with victims of domestic. Violence is safety planning. What can that particular person? Due TO BE SAFER WITH. Sheltering at home that's become much more complicated because safety plans often would include something like I can spend the night at my mother's if I see certain signs of behavior that are worrisome. That sort of thing may not be option now but options. That can still work for this time. Might be a code word that your child does that. If I say a certain word the child should call nine one one. It might be something lake a neighbor when I put the shade in the bathroom Or put a plant in the window. The neighbor knows that you're in distress and to keep an ear out and to call the police as you pointed out it's about giving people help. Yes first and foremost if you imagine or think about what it might be like or what. It must be like to be a child or to be an adult trapped in a situation where you feel. Fear every minute of the day and you could help that person. Think of what that would mean victims of domestic abuse faced significant challenges leaving before the pandemic but wants people to know that organizations like safe horizon.

Why We Didn't Prepare For The Pandemic

Why We Didn't Prepare For The Pandemic

"Again and again the world was warned that it was not ready for a pandemic warned by the World Health Organization in the World Bank and a big study last year warned by research scholars and in Long magazine articles warned even by Bill Gates in a famous Ted. Talk in two thousand fifteen if anything kills over ten million people in the next few decades. It's most likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war. Also there have been numerous close calls. In the last couple of decades when epidemics in some parts of the world looked like they might become global. Pandemics SARS Moore's Ebola and yet even as corona virus started spreading across the globe earlier this year people and governments throughout the world were unprepared. There wasn't enough protective equipment. They were slow to produce enough tests for the virus. The took too long to implement social distancing. A big part of the problem. Is that when it comes to preparing for a global disaster like this one we? Humans are fighting an uphill battle against a powerful force. Our own brains. The mind is full of psychological biopsies. That can lead us not to take seriously enough. These warnings of impending doom economists Harford recently chronicled. Some of these biopsies in an article for the Financial Times magazine and Tim says for example that people seem to have what's called a normalcy bias. Normalcy bias is sometimes called negative panic. It's just this idea that when things are falling apart all around you. There's a total disaster. People very often don't seem to realize how bad things are often surprisingly calm even when actually they should be taking very prompt action in a pandemic the number of infected people grows exponentially so fast that it can be hard to understand how it's spreading at the rate it is but normalcy bias might prevent us from seeing just how bad things are getting until we are overwhelmed by the problem and this doesn't just apply to global pandemics and it's not new. Tim says for evidence of normalcy bias. You can even go all the way back to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year. Eighty seventy nine. When people in the town of Pompeii watch the eruption for hours instead of evacuating the city? Up until the moment that they were buried under its ash clouds. So that is normalcy bias. There's also something called optimism bias. Which is the tendency to think that even if a disaster is to you know everyone around me I myself won't be affected so I don't need to take precautions. For example a study of what people expected as hurricane. Sandy was coming in to hit the coast to New Jersey. People actually expected that it would be worse than the meteorologists did but they thought that they themselves would be fine. They didn't really need to worry. So that's optimism bias and there's also the herd instinct which Tim says just reflect that we are all very social creatures. We take our cues from what other people do. So even as a pandemic is gathering momentum. Well if everyone else is acting like they're not worried we don't get worried. We don't start wearing masks. We don't start avoiding crowds. We don't get ready to work from home. Yeah there was just this general sense of there's a pandemic has a is this corona virus thing. It seems pretty bad. It looks pretty bad in Italy. Maybe I should do something. Maybe I should do something men. But nobody's really do and then there's not moment way like Oh and he'd get toilet paper and get food needs to get mosques and he's telling shares it's too late. Everyone's doing the same thing at the same time. It's the herd instinct and Tim reminds us that government leaders and people who work at the agencies that are in charge of preparing the world for a pandemic also have these same biases so even they might be slow to act until it's too late so these psychological biopsies can help explain why the world did not start preparing itself weeks or months earlier than it did. Once Corona virus started spreading within China which is where it originated but the biopsies do not fully explain why so many countries throughout the world ignored the warnings of the past and did not have a better plan in place for the next pandemic even before corona virus started in a big reason actually has to do with the ways we make economic decisions

Youth-led Earth Day strikes go digital

"Eighteen year. Old Shia best eater grew up in a small town outside Mexico City where she saw the effects of both drought and flooding. Then when she was thirteen she moved to New York City and learned about the damage hurricane. Sandy caused there. She realized global warming affects communities all around the world and felt driven to do something about it. When I saw the first global strike being called my school and I got six hundred kits to walk out with me. I thought that would work with me. She says it helped her realize how many other young people are worried and ready. Act since then. She's helped organized weekly youth climate strikes across the city now because of the corona virus youth activists have taken their actions online along plan Earth Day. Strike is being held. Digitally with online teaches virtual gatherings and social media campaigns. Whether young people are on the streets or in cyberspace best data says they bring a sense of energy and optimism to the climate movement.

Floating Farms Point the Way to Alternative Food Ecosystems

"How about cows on a boat. How about it? It's actually not a boat. Though wired's Laura Maloney has an article about a floating cal for farm from a property development company called Bella Donna in Rotterdam Harbour in the Netherlands. The aim is to demonstrate a possible sustainable food source. The idea came to the owner of John. Peter Van Win Gordon when he saw the disruption to the food supply in New York during hurricane. Sandy and he's like maybe for food security. We should develop floating farm so he did a four thousand nine hundred forty three square foot stable floating on concrete pontoons anchored into the seabed. Cows eat potato peels and grass. Clippings waste is turned into fertilizer for park grass soccer fields. Or just you know meadows The thin provides the clippings for the food and milk from the cows is bottled or made into yogurt. The farm appears to be too expensive to replicate and widely are to replicate widely anyway and relies on too many resources outside of the cows. So there's a lot of maintenance when you're out of the sea water power. It doesn't make its own power I know you're thinking cows. Obviously there's a power source there in methane But they haven't figured that out yet so to maintain sustainability is a challenge but the founder. Peter Van Win Gordon hopes the experiment will spark more creative thinking about food sustainability. Yeah and for anybody. Who's like what you're putting a bunch of cows on a pontoon nat me. The cows can come and go. This is almost five thousand square foot area for the cows to eat stable. Do their do their business but they they can. They can go To to and from land. They're rich enough but also interesting. I guess in the early stages of testing this out the large question was do they want to do this because they're gonna get seasick like let's not do this to the cows. Cow's seem okay. Cows are like all right. We got it you know. They're they're pretty resilient creatures but it. It's interesting to me that this would be so expensive to replicate. I understand that if you don't I mean. The Netherlands is below sea level majority wise and covered in water. So this is a perfect place to try something like this out. There are lots of other places in the world where this but work and and places that it wouldn't so you can't just say we're just gonNa build all the stuff you know on every little lake around here of course work but I I wonder what is so cost prohibitive at this point it probably has a lot to do with power but yeah but as. I mentioned the maintenance you know Seawater corrodes things. You have to a lot of maintenance to keep just a regular old boat in shape or you know Derek. And so you don't have any sustainability in that stuff. There's not sustainable power. There's not the cows don't provide any maintenance so yet to be other people. Earning their keep. I mean it could go. It doesn't necessarily have to be cows either. It could be like a hydroponics growing crops but it would be the same maintenance power issues. Maybe our I don't know but less power I mean if you can get some get some solar cells on top you can actually do kind of some sort of preventive galvanic corrosion on the vice by running a current through Through the superstructure. What Win Gordon is hoping people will do by doing it this way. He's like. Maybe maybe I'll inspire Roger Chang to improve on my desire. I think this might be a better fit for aquiculture whether it's something like Raising Oysters waste a mobile floating oyster bed. That you're not tied up next door but you let float and then let the waves carry whatever but yeah there's all. Those oysters beds are currently fixed like their fixed from offshore. So you walk down and but if you have their floating you fix to they fixed to the punt I mean. That's that's my thing is if they could get it so you can have it float. You could lessen. The impact of things like fish farms and stuff have currently in Ensure

Vegetable Breeding with Nate Kleinman

"A lot of what I learned about gardening decades ago I learned from seed catalogs always gravitating ones featuring the varieties the better plants promising. Lots of both personality and productivity. So when I got introduced to the nonprofit cooperative called Experimental Farm Network recently I felt right at home a corps belief at the F. N. that that act culture can and should be used to help build a better world not help destroy it. co-founders Nate Kleinman in New Jersey. There's e- and dusty hens in Minnesota chrome most of ESPN's seeds in each year. They're adding more growers to their roster including inspiring plant breeders who often often work in relative obscurity nature today to shine a light on these players and some old and new varieties. I think you'll be as excited about as I am. Welcome nate. I'm so glad to meet you so much. I'm really happy to be here is my motto. I like it I that should be. We should steal uh-huh so I'm so much have made your introduction and we have so many. CD friends in common. I'm surprised we haven't crust fat pass before but let's start with an explanation from you of what the experimental farm network is and how it got started. Sure and we've yeah we've only been around for a few years though not too surprising. People are definitely still learning about it. we we were founded in twenty thirteen gene destiny and I met actually through occupy Wall Street Movement In Philadelphia we were involved with occupy Philly and a group called occupy vacant. Lots lots which was working to To basically transformed vacant lots in the Philadelphia area into productive food growing spaces and dusty scene. I were Farming in small lots and and I had been urban farmers and backyard farmers for for some time but we both decided we wanted to to expand and Get some land and try and grow on a bigger scale and I had also been collecting rare seeds for a few years. At this. This point I had a growing collection and not enough places to grow them. I we started talking about. Should we start a seed company. What what do we want to What do we want to do with all of these seeds and It was actually at A. I went to a conference and I heard a talk from a guy named Eric. Tones Meyer from Massachusetts who's an author and And he wrote some great books. One called Paradise lost Another called The carbon urban farming solution and he gave a talk on perennial industrial crops and how perennial staple crops could be used to fight climate. Change and I had sort of known the story of perennial wheat and the the attempts to develop for any elite through the years. But there were he mentioned mentioned crops that I knew about but had no idea the potential that they might have as as potential Sources of energy of Industrial we'll crops An industrial uses fiber crops and of course food crops And there were always stories about how through through The last century people have made a lot of strides towards things like perennial wheat and then For for whatever reason they had to abandon it or you know they worked for university eventually. They retired and nobody was there to to pick up the slack so At the same time I had been working working with Occupy Sandy which was a grassroots hurricane relief organization that grew out of the occupy movement following Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York and so we had This was a really successful effort. How mobilized tens of thousands of volunteers and was in neighborhoods that the the government was not in and the Red Cross and Salvation Army that we were able to fill a lot of folding and impressed a lot of people in including the people involved with it for being amateurs doing something that is normally reserved for professionals and doing a great job at it so I started thinking well if we can apply the same kind of ethos to some of the problems in in plant breeding some of these things that have been nagging at people for for generations like developing viable perennial brain props If we could create a a collaborative horizontal model where people are working together in a decentralized centralized fashion that maybe we could drive innovation and help to to create some of these some of these crops that really need to exist So that that sort of the of the whole thing and so besides the seed Catalog online that we're going to get to in a second the or these projects that that you're in you're we're doing like for instance. seeking improved genetics of the Native Beach Plum. Which I think is what is it prunes? Meritas that what that is or the native May POPs the native passion flowers that in Karnataka. PASSIFLORA incarnate. Is that one didn't make that up. Sometimes they make that names and and so so there's all kinds of of projects besides the seeds That are in the where people can shop and and get things are these projects going on to Like you just talked about perennial grains and so forth but for some native important Plants Plant says. Well yes yes. We're working with a lot of a lot of native plants that have potential as as domesticated crop plants. People just I need to put the work into it and we figure if if before all working together we can do better job I mean. Plant breeding is. It's I often say play. Printing is looking for a needle in a haystack. STAC you're trying to find that exact correct collection of genes and traits. And so if you if you have more people looking through the haystack back. You're going to find the needle fast now. So I have listening lots of starving from winter gardeners who want to buy seeds and shop proceeds in fine crazy. He's going to grow and whatever so. Let's go to the store front and I think you you just put up your list recently early January For Twenty Twenty and I think you have more than in two hundred offerings hundred. I think we're new to you There's a few common threads running through The listings and one one of them as I said in the introduction perennial edibles and I thought. Let's talk about some of those and I see that on instagram. You say ah many of these will be friends. As a major part of our nonprofit mission is encouraging farmers and gardeners to plant more carbon sequestering perennial crops. So that's sort of the the the mission behind the perennial edible thing. Yes you plant. It does its job for a long time Yup and and because you have a perennial. You're not tilling. The soil and active jealous is what releases so much carbon into the atmosphere. It's not just tractors and the equipment equipment chemicals people use but but just a very active tilling. Yeah so for instance there. Are you have seeds book. Believe or or something for ramps and Rhubarb. So tell me about. Some of the Rhubarb story was fascinating actually. Yeah I love the one of my favorite scenes yourselves the Tracy Rhubarb of which is Name we gave to a variety of rhubarb that You know it it may have had another name originally but for all we know it It it was a you know a seedling. Potentially that was planted by Friends of my family who were an elderly couple who since passed away and after they died hide their daughter-in-law took me to the property. She wanted to find the rhubarb and digging up because it was all they always made delicious. Baked goods with at and She she was pacing around the back yard looking for it underneath the in the grass and They'd had a they'd had somebody mowing the grass every couple of weeks while the house on the market gets and finally she found this This pencil thin stock with a quarter-sized leaf at the end of it. And so they're they're far very unimpressive presence but had survived under the MOWER. Blades for a couple years. And when we put the shovel to the ground we've found a huge dude route underneath the ground and I was able to dig it up and and run away. Divided into three chunks and each chunk became a plant that my friends in my friend's backyard in Pennsylvania and then We started splitting it up even more and I sent to my sister in Michigan and a friend in Baltimore and I I planted it in New Jersey and then pretty soon. We realized that this was a really extraordinary rhubarb. Had really fix fix stems so It's very easy to use in the kitchen and has enormous leaves which shade out all the weeds in a within a three foot area around the plant. So it's it's very very easy to grow and then one of the most Exciting things about it is that compared to all the other rhubarb that we grow It's the least attractive to the Japanese. Beetles also have a Japanese problem. Where you live? You may know that they They seem to love Rhubarb and they can really Decimate a plant in In the summer when they're when they're at their peak so this one survives through through the summer really well it's it's early and and it produces another flush in the fall. Aw and it's it's It's just delicious too. It's got A it's got A. It's not deep bread. It's got red at the base of the of the stock But enough to make any jam I am or tie that you make have nice pink colored and And it's just delicious

New York City spends billions on flood protection

"In twenty twelve superstorm. Sandy wreaked havoc on New York. City's transportation system storm surge pushed a flood of seawater into vehicle tunnels rail yards very terminals and subway life. Hurricane Sandy. It was a big wake up call for the city that Suzanne de Roche. The city's deputy director of infrastructure and energy. She says after the storm subway tunnels and stations nations had to be pumped out electrical systems needed to be cleaned repaired and tested in some places. It took weeks to get up and running again as sees rise is and whether it gets more extreme. The risks from flooding only grow so New York is working to make its massive transportation system more resilient for looking at major major flood protection systems across the subway network the airports and articulate tunnels that go in and out of Manhattan for example. The city is installed huge. Flood Gates at the entrances of two tunnels. A steel floodwall will soon protect the coney island rail yard and the city's working on ways to seal off subway. Station entrances invents. It's a multibillion dollar effort Dorota says the next time a natural disaster hits New York expects to be better prepared

Dianna Daouheung's Journey with Black Seed Bagels

"Black seeds been open now for five years right. Yep Yep five years going on six very shortly really five going on six. It feels like blackeyed has been around longer because you opened and you just start crushing it. Immediately I mean you change the Bagel scene and in New York which is not an easy thing to do because the places that have been around our institutions and now black seat institution. How does that feel? It's insane into the that we have seven locations now in five years like you said to you. It seems like we've been to me. I feel like I've been doing it for a lifetime. It's Oh I feel it's been around and yeah I mean I think that the mark of a good brand and a good product absolutely when it sort of seamlessly fits into yeah. Yeah for sure especially hearing the younger generations taught. I'll be randomly on the L. Train and I'll over here. Some you know college kid be like oh I take my mom all the time. I'm to black seat on like all the time we've only been open for mazing so tell us how you got your start. Yeah Baking for awhile you more than it was in advertising when I moved to New York and you know I did the typical life. Crisis Transitional Change Drastic In salary paying all types but you know I. I started off in savory seen. Okay wait I need to take you back. Yeah we glossed over that very quickly. I try so where did you grow up. I grew up in Florida. My parents originally from Thailand first generation. And you know went to school for marketing and business and then I moved to New York thinking you know. I'm going to be a madman and be an advertising and that was gonna be my career life choice. I was advertising interesting to you. Obviously the creative aspect the money because when you're young you think money's the answer to everything and you know at that time to you know. Two thousand doesn't four and it seemed like that was the right move especially you know growing in Florida when you think about New York jobs. You know advertising fashion those those are probably the two biggest things that you I are drawn to the Glamour job. Yeah the glamour jobs. Then you realize it ain't so glamorous is it you know it's like especially when you're in the the bottom rung and and I moved up pretty quickly in that world and I learned a lot of business practices that I still apply to my current job but at the end of the day was stuck in luxury brands and You know every client that worked on was just these unattainable a little brands. That aren't for everyday people and I just didn't feel good about it. The end of the day. Well Yeah So. How old were you when you decided I need to make a change? Probably probably out twenty six twenty five hundred sixty realize pretty quickly wasn't for you. Yeah I mean my dad's a Buddhist monk. My mom was a housekeeper is keep her never really you know grew up in that kind of world and consulted with my dad and he was just like you know you have to follow your heart. You really you. Don't chase the money. I know how important it is in New York. But that's not going to be. What makes you happy and I really dug into? What makes me happy in the the in the day you know? Food is a big part of my family of Thai culture. Answer just like you know what I'm just GonNa go to culinary school and give it a shot in the mirrors. Why chose IOS culinary schools? I had served bartended all through college but I really super nervous going into a situation where I really didn't know much about it except except from the front on the House side so you know I don't want to say I regret it now. 'cause color school gave me my basics. But you know I'm still paying for tuition based yeah well like every college student. Yeah exactly one lucky ones graduate with debt but when you got to culinary school did you gravitate toured anyone side sweet savory yeah I mainly actually went specifically for pastry because not even another sounds crazy not because I had a specific interest for it because they knew that was my weakest thing growing up. Thai food isn't really known for its sweet to my mom is a big Kyrie Cook. She really didn't like Baker Cake for press or anything so I naturally knew how to do a lot of safety things already and I also wanted to really go into kitchen be like you know I know how to do everything thing. I'm I don't ever want to be in there like I don't know how to butcher a pig. I don't know how to bake a cake. And since that was my weakest and I knew it was gonNA pay a lot of money for for school is like I'm GonNa do something that's going to benefit me. Where when I go into a kitchen asking me like who knows how to make and I can raise my hands? You know. So that was really why I chose Pastries I still love making it but overall I like just being a well rounded chef. Think it's really important in today's kitchen economics because you can no longer afford justice. Avery JESSOP pay. She really need to know everything at this point. So you gravitate toward baking you. You wind up meeting the Mile End folks which is a sort of Modern Deli in Brooklyn and tell us how you got involved with them in how you got involved in their baking program. Yes so it actually goes back advertising. Ed really great friend that lived above mylan and at that time it was. You know just the one in Brooklyn which now. It's just the one in Brooklyn but he was like. Hey I know you're really nervous about going into a kitchen asking for a job. I know a place opening up and they really are needing some a good time to people and literally just went up and I was like hey and at this time to Noah had no clue what he was doing either like I could just tell he he was still green. So he's like I could use any help possible so that I doing half kitchen half front of the house just shifts because you need to help them both and slowly but surely he's like windmill. Wait a minute amid teach you how to slice meat. And he saw Amelia's like murdering all the guys in the slice way faster way thinner than any of the guys even on the line so he's like all right. Let's do this so no being the CO founder. Right yes of mile end so fast forward so they come up with the idea for black seed right. You wind up involved in that. Yes so is actually Noah the Matt clean men who owns the smile in new operates. Jane they both were just sitting sitting around. This was after sandy basically and they were just Hurricane Sandy Hurricane Sandy in new matt offered a hand to Noah just like hey I heard your commissary went down how can help you and they were just having beers and just chit chatting about you know. Why are there no good bagels? And they're they're like we're restaurant tours. We can make this happen. And now we have to note before the New Yorkers are like what do you mean. They're no good bagels right. Noah's from Montreal different kind of Bagel. Diana will explain to us. What a Montreal? The but that's why they were saying they're no good bagels right in the Matt is actually a New Yorker. So that's kind of how he came up with a hybrid but you know and how will they came about with me as like you know. We don't know what black seeds going to be. We can't afford necessarily a general manager chef. We need somebody that can really encompass everything in this is obviously before they made me a partner of any sort and that time. I think I've worked with Noah for about five years at that time and he just like. Hey Hey in two. At that time I think it was just managing and doing catering and events from from Ireland. And he's like. Hey I know you really speaking. Do you WanNa do this again. And I was like sure sure I'll give it a shot not knowing that was going to be the craziness it is now so and there's one of those rare brands. It became a success right out of the gate. Yeah Yeah it was insane to me. We couldn't keep up with literally first day. Think we had a close down at like one. Remember the GRUB street stories. Yeah kept running out you. Yeah so your partner today

Fidelity brokerage services LLC on the steps of New York City hall more than one hundred people celebrated the passage of a landmark climate Bill last week. It doesn't target cars or coal it regulates big buildings. New York mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to sign the Bill into law soon. He says it's the first law in the world require emissions cuts from existing buildings, and it could serve as a model for other cities NPR's Camilo, Domino's ski reports think of New York City's famous skyscrapers. Now, imagine the power it takes to heat and cool and eliminate them. And maybe it's not so surprising. That buildings are responsible for two thirds of the city's greenhouse gas emissions. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio called it. The mother load in an interview with NPR buildings are the single biggest piece of the problem that hasn't been addressed. And we have the tools to do it right now. Everything about this. New law is big it focuses on big buildings and calls for big cuts to emissions ultimately eighty percent. And if buildings don't comply they will face big fines recuse the biggest buildings if these goals are not met the fines can be one. Million dollars per year or more even so what does it take for a building to slash its carbon emissions? Take a ride on the Empire State. Building's elevator. The world's most famous and you get to see Bill. Flakes to the last ten years. This landmark has gone through an ambitious energy efficiency overhaul. Tourists visiting the hundred and two storey landmark can't see them. But retrofits are everywhere. Insulated windows dim -able lights upgraded air conditioning, tools for tenants to cut consumption. Even that elevator is more efficient. There is no silver bullet these are lots of little pieces. So we call it silver buckshot, Anthony Malkin is the CEO of the Empire State realty trust which owns the building when you were deuce energy consumption, reduce carbon up. It's very simple. The Empire State building has dramatically slashed both energy use and emissions. But New York City's new legislation ultimately calls for even more cuts. This is absolutely a step that goes beyond anything that we've even accomplished in our buildings. The new law will carry a hefty price tag collectively the required retrofits will cost an estimated four billion dollars. But that's just looking at the costs. There are savings too. From lower bills over time. I'm the Empire State building spent millions on those retrofits, but it is already made back the investment, and then some so some of the required retrofits will pay for themselves, but de Blasios technologies that won't always be true. They are the kinds of mandates that assum building owners will find to be stretch goals, and we'll find to be difficult. But that's the point. That is the law is designed to push owners to make changes they wouldn't. Otherwise, New York is already a very expensive city large commercial landlords are frustrated that they have to make changes when other buildings don't and suggest the law could drive business away. But the mayor emphasizes that financing will be available and the bill's supporters respond to concerns over cost by pointing out that climate change poses an existential threat to this coastal city. They recall the devastating effects of hurricane sandy muddied Silva.

"We're not saying it's not across the Atlantic moving at about seventeen miles per hour. Joining me live is Ken Graham. He's my rector of the National Hurricane. I thought he'd walk outside. And you're inside the student. I want to ask in the studio from Miami. There are different types of forecasts. There are different forecasting models. And they show slightly different things. Why are there different? Are we case north by with yon saw now in looking for the hurricane clips from hurricane Florence? I found something that was really funny. And that was that there's a lot of different things in elevators. She was like in the he was in the wind. He was in the rain. He was walking through the streets. He was in the hurricane. He was he's been there since the beginning. And he's in and out, whatever. But there was something I found from hurricane sandy that was even better. So he apparently he's been doing this. We're while. So he went to jam. This is his jam. So I just need to play this just so you can hear and you can see. And it's better for you to see the clips just so that, you know. He's he's in the street. It's raining, and it's flooding. Okay. Which one was hurricane sandy. That's in New York. Okay. And. Is he's in jersey right now right now. Could hear the wind gusts? He's he's moving around like he's gonna fall down. They have the camera really far back. Okay. He's wearing upon show. He's he's yelling out the sound went out. All my God is love that out their favorite. There goes the car a car destroyed by he's crazy. The storm surge. They want everybody who does never reason to be outside in everybody inside. Now you alley behind him. Come bunch of guys jumping and dancing dancing. Get my shirt shirtless because they don't give a fuck. Okay. Like right at the part where he says they want everybody who doesn't need to be outside three dancing buffoon. Don't behind him. Right. Also. Why don't you? Go ahead on inside go inside. Like, okay. So and of course during hurricane Florence. It's a state of emergency in the flooding Israel, and it is horrific, and it's whatever, and I don't want to diminish it in no way. We're just making fun of the reporters. Yeah. It's all about the report or not making fun of Zotov or people. What they but. Right. No. Of course, not, but I wanted to so I found a mash up, and I can see it can see that. It's starting to happen online that people are starting to. Well, actually, I want to play this one. I before I play the mash up. I so I found this one. So there's also local people who go to the hurricanes so local like. For example. And they do it for the new station like they'll be like send out your local. So here's a guy from ABC Chicago reporting from North Carolina. The wind is not that bad. But of course, it's it's it's it's so bad. The wind is horrible. And this asshole sending the middle of an intersection as he's talking. No one's out. No cars..

"With the senator from another part of the country in reaching across the aisle and drafting bills they can support one another that held through hurricane katrina hurricane sandy we saw something very different the response from congress was slow partisan and the votes that passed the final hurricane sandy relief bill broke along party lines critics of the bill or saying there's so many things in here that are pork that are not related to the disaster and that reflects i think a pretty consistent ideology of many conservatives who don't think the government should be much involved in infrastructure spending or science spending or health spending a lot of that relief bill was focused on dealing with the deferred maintenance of transportation system for example in new york and new jersey almost all of the bill weather sara was marked for infrastructure or science had to do with repairing damage direct damage there there's no evidence that the money that was spent was pork in any way but that reflects an idea that i have led the government has a role in keeping our infrastructure in good shape for example and so what you'll see play out i think with the harvey relief still is that democrats will want to see spending that can have a long term impact on making the next storm less costly the real thing to watch for will be fights within the republican party as to what exactly should disaster relief be there there is one ideological viewpoint that says that disaster relief should be sandbags and water and temporary shelter and that's about it leaves the rest of it to the churches to the communities to the city to the local taxpayers and maybe the state there will be other republicans who will take a different attitude and that's how we will predict i think the size of the hurricane harvey relief there is another aspect of this that playing out at the state level houston is a democratic city the majority of citizens of houston did not vote for president trump and for the current governor so you're gonna see debates playing out at the federal level but also at the state level about well does houston really deserve all of this money and will it be well spent disasters are sort of a master class in american federalism understanding it in that way shows us again the disasters reveal the way we think about.
