Harris to announce $1B to states for floods, extreme heat
"The White House will make more than $1 billion available to states struggling with extreme heat and flooding From deadly flooding in Kentucky to wildfires in California the Biden administration says climate change is leading to extreme weather It is literally not figuratively a clear and present danger After the president last month announced his administration would help communities deal with soaring temperatures the vice president today will unveil grant programs to help areas handle climate related disasters She'll make the announcement in Miami after a briefing at the national hurricane center Famous chief says much of the money will go directly to communities that need it most Sagar Meghani Washington
Greg Gutfeld and Charlie Discuss the Hilarious Babylon Bee
"For the day. And again, this is why the Babylon bee is so unbelievably brilliant. Because. You can not decipher between the Babylon bee headline and what's happening in The New York Times, I'm just waiting for the fema press release. Hurricane incoming, no need to be urgent. Yes. You're a KKK member. Yes, no rush, no rush. You may die, but you know, you'll be an antiracist. Yes, exactly. I hate the Babylon bee for reasons that they might be funnier than me. And that is a problem. But you know what's interesting going back to the left, what's happening to the left. As the Babylon B gets funny or in funnier, what's less funny, the onion. The onion actually did, they actually now kind of do serious stuff, and I'm like, what happened? And it's like, you know, some things just you just can't joke about. Even the onion, like the roe V wade thing, and we can't even joke about that. You know, and so then they just trash somebody, whatever. Meanwhile, the Babylon bee is, has flipped the script. You know, now the onion is dean wormer, their animal House, and they're really sweet, smart people. I mean, who would have thought that a Christian website is funnier than all the cool atheists?
Hidden Menace: Massive methane leaks speed up climate change
"Massive methane leaks or speeding up climate change and Associated Press investigation shows hundreds of oil and gas operations are spewing the gas over and over again An aerial survey last year detected 533 methane super emitters in the Permian Basin a 250 mile wide expanse along the Texas New Mexico border The survey was conducted by carbon mapper a partnership of university researchers and NASA Riley durin is carbon mappers CEO Often in a place like the Permian with fragmented leases where you have literally dozens if not hundreds of operators close by is the biggest source of uncertainty isn't where is the methane coming from it is who owns that piece of equipment The methane released by these companies will disrupt the climate for decades contributing to more heat waves hurricanes wildfires and floods Congress and the Environmental Protection Agency haven't regulated the gas leaving it up to oil and gas producers to cut emissions on their own I'm Mike Hempen
Charlie Kirk: Tampa Is Where Turning Point USA Began
"I ask you this question every time we get together. And I'm sorry to ask it for the 99th time. But when you were putting turning point together in your parents garage, could you have ever envisioned that as you look around and see this Tampa convention center and all of the booths and the security and the kids and the could you have ever dreamed it was going to turn out like this? No, and it's actually amazing being in Tampa because Tampa Florida is really where turning point USA kind of came to life in some sense. I could tell the full story and I wrote about it in the book, but this was where the Republican National Convention was in 2012. And I flew down here, no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. I couldn't find a hotel, couldn't rent a car. There was a hurricane that first Monday you might remember. I was here. I remember? Oh, yeah. I interviewed you, I think. Yeah, and I was just scrapping, hustling, trying to, you know, just trying to make things happen. And so the answer is no, but that's what's so beautiful about America is that you take a small risk and you grow and I thought our events were a big deal when we had 500 students there and you were at some of those events. Now we have 5006 thousand students. We have the top speakers and the whole movement that are coming to Santos and Trump and Holly and Cruz and gutfeld just blows you away. And it really is the lord's blessing as well. We're just instruments for his will. And we're doing everything we possibly can though. It's a beautiful country, and we want to do our part to say that.

Mike Gallagher to Sponsor 3 Golf Teams for Carolina Pregnancy Center
"Nice email that was sent from folks over at the Carolina pregnancy center when Elizabeth Warren this week said that crisis pregnancy centers all over America need to be shut down. And yep, she said it. Very forceful. I'm sure she'll say it again. I doubt that she'll take it back. She should. It's evil. It's ghastly to think that a powerful prominent politician wants to shut down. Environments that are trying to give women an alternative to destroying that unborn baby, and the Carolina pregnancy center is in Spartanburg, South Carolina, they're doing great work. And my pal Joey Hudson is going to be part of a big golf tournament they're having in August. And I'm sponsoring a number of golfers who are going to be playing in the golf tournament to benefit the Carolina pregnancy center and Joey's sponsoring a team. He told me this morning, I'm sponsoring hurricanes in my sponsoring three or four, by the time this was over, I'll be sponsoring 30 teams. I challenged Joey to match me. I'll bet he will. But nonetheless, I'm happy to do it because I know they're doing great work and here's a note that I got from the Carolina pregnancy center. Dear mister Gallagher, thank you so much for all your kind words about Carolina pregnancy center. We had so many calls and texts as a result. One man even Googled us and came by for a tour, it was so encouraging also we're so appreciative to you for the three teams you are sponsoring for our golf tournament. You should come down and play. Listen, I want to help the Carolina pregnancy center. You don't want me

Biden Administration Sends Oil Reserves Overseas
"All right, Joel, I got two major things that I want to focus on that I want the audience to understand better. The first thing is is that could or did this administration send reserves overseas and they should have actually used those reserves for us to bring down gas prices. How did that situation work and also the rumors that the petroleum or the oil was sent to businesses or sent to China in relation to businesses that Hunter Biden had involved in. So the first one is, should we be concerned about the oil being sent overseas versus it being here right at home? Well, first off, let's recall what these reserves are actually in place for. We have these strategic petroleum reserves in order to help us get through a crunch, not of high prices, but to get through a crunch, let's say we had a hurricane or an attack on our infrastructure or a period of war, we couldn't actually get oil out of the ground and through the refineries. That's why we have the reserves in place. These reserves are not that there to help any party, whether it's Republicans or Democrats, lower gas prices or oil prices. That's number one. Second of all, the oil that was actually released in the reserves, it actually depleted those substantially, but it had a very minimal impact on price. If you look at prices, prices continued to increase even after that oil is released. And that's because as much as the president continued to talk about all the millions of barrels of oil that were going to be released, it was just a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of oil that we use in a given year. By that I mean, releasing 1 million barrels of oil a day for 6 months, it sounds like a lot of oil, but we're talking about 9 days worth of oil. And that's because we use anywhere from 14 to 18 million barrels a day in this
Tropical Storm Colin threatens a wet weekend for Carolinas
"A tropical storm is bringing the threat of rain and high winds to the Carolinas I'm Ben Thomas with the latest Tropical storm Colin formed along the South Carolina coast Saturday the national hurricane center warns of possible flash flooding with up to four inches of rain possible in isolated areas At latest report the storm center was located inland about 25 miles west southwest of Myrtle Beach moving northeast at 8 mph maximum sustained winds near 40 mph with stronger gusts a tropical storm warning is in effect from south Santee river in South Carolina to duck North Carolina However the storm is not expected to strengthen as it moves into the Atlantic on Monday I'm Ben Thomas
How Big a Deal Is This Recession?
"From an economic standpoint, historically, historically when the fed raises like it needs to raise right now in order to fight inflation, we've often had these recessions, right? So the question now becomes how big a deal is it as I was pointing out Jamie Dimon saying whether or not it's a cat 5 hurricane or just a big storm. I'm hopeful, I'm hopeful right now. It's just a big storm and I say that because we still have low unemployment, 3.5%, I'll take it, right? So a lot of people are still not working, that might give us some flexibility to manage this just a little bit better. But inflation is here. I mean, you look at oil today, oil still going up. The trajectory of that is really problematic. I've suggested we could be looking at a $130 per barrel by summer, we're already at $5 a gallon as a national average more than $5 a gallon all across the country. This hurts, it hurts everyday Americans who are saving and trying to plan and they're spending gets eroded. You have an economy that is based on consumer spending. It actually accounts for two thirds of our overall GDP. So you can't say, all right, well, it doesn't matter if people aren't going to spend as much it absolutely does. And these are the people that really, you know, our economy functions on and depends on and if they're not spending as much and we've seen evidence from all the big box retailers right now that are saying people are either trading down or they're not spending as much because they have to spend more on gas and food and all those things well then that has a very or session like effect on the economy.

"hurricanes " Discussed on Poke the Bear
"But I feel like we don't talk enough. And it's maybe because Carolina just does things better than the Maple Leafs, but we don't talk enough about the fact that the bruins have also dominated the dominated the hurricanes in the postseason in the past bunch of years. It's not just the Maple Leafs. Like the hurricanes, they've also beat twice. And up in the boat, I know it was a sweep in 2019, the conference final. But in the bubble, was it 5 games? I think it was 5 games, wasn't it? They won one Carolina one one, and then that was that. Over time, that one game, they have the game that came down two goals in the third period to win. I think it was 5 games. Because that was a series where game one was at like 11 a.m. after the Burton was the broker on double OT win. Yep. So that was that series. So again, I think Carolina strikes me as a team that's been there enough now that they're on the doorstep of like actually going deep and having real success. So that's kind of my biggest worry with this series of the bruins. But that's something we can kind of touch on maybe later as it gets closer with the previews. And all that stuff. I think the one big thing, one of the biggest things about this series is it's way better to go through the metro than it does to go through the Atlantic. Because now in the Atlantic, you set up a scenario where the Maple Leafs and the lightning hit the hell out of each other. And the Panthers can get their can get knocked around by the capitals for a full series or potentially the penguins are probably going to be the capitals. And you kind of avoid that. That's not too terrible. I mean, as much as I wanted them to play the Maple Leafs for like fun and for the teams, strategically, it's better to let the Atlantic teams beat the hell out of each other. Yeah, no, absolutely. I look at it, I think we've made that analogy before where it was going to be a tough road anyway, but it's kind of similar to the Celtics going into this playoff series against the nets where it's like, all right, they could very well lose in round one. Like the team they were going against should be good. And Carolina is good. So this room scene could lose in the first round and people can be very disappointed in that. Or they could get past them and all of a sudden the road opens up a little bit. Granted, that means round two you're going up against either Pittsburgh or the rangers who I wrote last weekend that I think the rangers are probably the best matchup for the bruins just because they're relatively pedestrian at even strength play. That being said they have shirts turkey, who could win a series by himself. So whichever way you look at it, it's going to be tough. But as you said, if you get past Carolina, you play against teams like New York or Pittsburgh and as you said on the other side of the bracket, you have these teams kicking the crap out of each other. You get out of round one at the very least one of tamper Toronto is going to be out of the picture. Most likely tune in advances is probably going to be banged up..

"Meaning. How strong they become. Hurricane is a technically something we call a tropical cyclone. Frank marks has been a research meteorologist for forty two years. At noah the national oceanic and atmospheric administration he directs the hurricane research division for noah's atlantic oceanographic and meteorological laboratory the kind of form over oceans in the pacific and atlantic and the indian ocean typically in the summer art of the year for that hemisphere when the oceans are the warmest day are relatively rare typically on the globe any year. There's between ninety and one hundred tropical. Cyclones that varies very little. It hasn't changed much over the time i've been studying. In mark says that though north atlantic hurricanes are causing more damage than in the past. That's not necessarily because they're more intense. You know we've had very intense tropical. Cyclones almost back to our wreckage. Go back to the eighteen fifties. And so there's been immense storms doing a lot of damage. The problem is that population has shifted and so our risk of damage has gone up tremendously. Plus there's been a demographic population shift towards the coastlines. The warmer climates as we develop things like air conditioning and got rid of malaria. You know people have migrated towards the tropics so even though there is no noticeable change in the actual storms. If there is it's very slight. I haven't seen it in forty years. We have made a dramatic change in the way we live which has made us extremely vulnerable. You know the lifestyle we have the amount of property we put it into the storms potential pats. The areas of the most growth in the united states has been in hurricane. Marriage is universal agreement because the date is absolutely uncontroversial that there's huge increases in hurricane damage. All around the world here again is kerry emanuel. But there's also universal agreement that most were maybe all of that signal is demographic it's not meteorological climatological. It's just that the the world's population expos to hurricanes has tripled since nineteen seventy. That's not just in the us. It's all around the world so you have more people living in places with hurricanes. You're going to get more damage. But what about the idea that climate change is making a storms more intense and dangerous is such a change actually showing up in our observations of real storms over the last few decades carry manual thinks. This kind of change could be hard to see. Because compared to models real world data are noisy the theoretical prediction of increase. Intensity is such that we would only expect the signal to emerge from the noise about now wouldn't have emerged twenty years ago for example the fact that we haven't unequivocally seen a signal compared to the noise is no reason to disregard the risks. That were a long ago predicted and rely on very very solid physics. Most of our observations come from the north atlantic but that only accounts for about twelve percent of the world's hurricanes it's not like scientists decided by vote but there are some things that we feel. We know very well like hurricanes ought to produce more ring and other kinds of storms as the temperature increases. It's just such simple physics. It's very hard to argue against it. There is a tendency among some people dealing with this problem to treat. Climate change is a problem of signal detection and attribution would. It isn't the whole story by any means. I'd like to say that if we had ten years of climate records which would be horrible we would still be fairly confident about stating that we are putting ourselves at rick's of worse damage from hurricanes just based on simple theory and models but despite all the noise some studies are seeing a clear signal like one published last year based on satellite data from nineteen seventy nine to two thousand seventeen. It's very tricky. Because satellites have improved over time as part of this study atmospheric research scientists james p. khasan along with other researchers actually degraded the quality of the modern satellites to match that of the older satellites. And when he looked at that what he found specifically was that the proportion of hurricanes that reach high category i- saffir-simpson category three four five has been increasing over time in a statistically significant way. The skill that's generally used to characterize hurricane strength was developed in the nineteen seventies by engineer. Herbert saffir in meteorologist robert simpson henson's name the saffir-simpson scale and it is exclusively based on the maximum sustained wind speed and hurricane. Daniel swain is a climate scientist with the institute of the environment and sustainability at ucla. So you get a category one. Two three four or five storm based only on what the maximum sustained wind in that particular storm is but a hurricane strength is more than its wind speed so the current scale says swain isn't perfect okay. Back to carry manual and that study showing that the proportion of hurricanes reaching high category number on the saffir-simpson scale is increasing. And i think that's an important results the first time we've seen that signal we didn't really expect to see it until about now in this very noisy and in somewhat deficient data but again it was it is coupled with a strong theoretical prediction. That that is what we should see and so when you take them together. It's a pretty strong case that we have a pretty high risk of more intense hurricanes so the physics is pretty clear. According to everything we know about how the atmosphere and the oceans work as the planet's temperature rises hurricanes are supposed to get more intense but when it comes to knowing exactly how much that's already happening. The current data are messier are telling a less obvious story. What we do know is hurricanes are causing more damage to us we. Humans interacting with these disasters are what caused the suffering. Catherine heyhoe again. So if a hurricane never hit land would it be disaster. If we didn't live along the coastline would a hurricane be a disaster. No we'd be like oh a hurricane hit hundred miles over there but we live over here putting ourselves in harm's way is what causes the suffering and often for many people. They don't have a choice. it's not like they can choose where they live. And whether it's in houston or miami or new york or whether it's in mumbai or madagascar it's always the people who already have the short end of the stick who are suffering the most from these impacts and these vulnerabilities says heyhoe will intensify with climate. Change we've had hurricanes on this planet before we had humans so it isn't that climate change is creating hurricanes. It's taking something that already exists and making it a lot worse. Climate change is what the us military now calls a threat multiplier. It takes every other.

"This week began with tropical storm. Nicholas reaching category one hurricane force right before making landfall along the texas gulf coast and last week hurricane larry reached category three and then weakened but not before causing power outages as a category one in newfoundland canada. The atlantic hurricane season runs from june first through november thirtieth and. This has already been record-setting hurricane henry alone produced the rainiest our on record in new york city a record that was broken again less than two weeks later by hurricane ida here just a few of the recent headlines hide i made landfall off the coast of louisiana packing winds of up to one hundred and fifty miles per hour extremely dangerous cat. Four storm unleashing damaging winds torrential rains and of life threatening storm surge. The remnants of hurricane ida delivering a historic soaking in the northeast. Potential wrath is bringing up the issue of climate change and its effect on hurricane. So here's what. I'm wondering about hurricanes getting more frequent stronger more destructive and his any of this connected to climate change his nova now where we look for the answers behind a stormy headlines. I'm a look patel. All right sorry i guess we lost communications. We are looking at imminent landfall. Abyss store if you're watching the news on august twenty ninth. You might have seen al roker getting soaked by hurricane ida as barreled through new orleans one hundred fifty miles per hour are are like are right now forecast storm surges upwards of fifty to sixty feet twenty eight inches of rain or bore with this system. Ida is the latest storm to at the us as a category four hurricane but even after it was downgraded to a tropical storm. It wasn't finished what people didn't expect. Was that as it kept on going. It stayed strong enough and it swept up enough water vapor to dump record amounts of rain in the new york area and some places. The highest one hour rainfall total ever recorded. Catherine heyhoe is an atmospheric scientist and the chief scientist for the nature conservancy. She's also the author of saving us a climate scientists case for hope and healing in a divided world in the states. Dozens died in. Ida's wake it goes without saying that hurricanes are some of the most powerful natural phenomena on our planet floods and rip currents can result from a hurricane strong winds heavy rainfall in storm surge which is went coastal waters rice abnormally high levels. Heyhoe is convinced that the data shows that hurricanes are getting stronger and that it's because of climate change. Here's the thinking. Climate scientists estimate that ninety three percent of the excess heat trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases finds its way into the ocean and warm water is hurricane fuel. What we're seeing is when they formed because there's so much more energy available to them. More of them are stronger. They're slower so they move slower and they don't more rain on us and it's very simple reason that as you warm the air its capacity to hold water vapor goes up goes quite fast seven percent for one degrees celsius increase in air. Temperature kerry emanuel is a professor of atmospheric science at the massachusetts institute of technology. Then this means that extreme rainstorms not just hurricanes but any kind of strong thunderstorm or or other kinds of storms. That rain will generally rain more so as they storms move along. There's more water vapor for them to speak up and dump on us for example with hurricane harvey that hit the city of houston back in august. Two thousand seventeen. We know that it had about forty percent more rain than it would have. If the same hurricane had happened one hundred years ago also. The warmer ocean water evaporates quicker and that makes more water vapor. So there's this whole feedback effect going on where the warmer gets the stronger and more damaging the hurricanes get and then there's also the fact that warmer water takes up more space so sea levels rising for two reasons reason number one is because land-based ice in greenland and antarctica. Smelting and that water is going into the ocean. But the second reason is simply because as the ocean gets warmer and actually literally takes up more space so when a hurricane comes along a lot of the damages due to hurricanes along the coast because of storm surges well as sea level rises. Those searches can reach further and further inland flooding. More and more areas. That wouldn't ordinarily be flooded. And as we destroy our coastal wetlands and as we build more and more valuable infrastructure rate along the coast. We're putting ourselves even more at risk. It's a lose lose loose. You may think hey hurricanes mainly affect coastal areas but that's not as true as it once was when hurricanes move over land you know they. We can pretty quickly right. You're unplugging them from the ocean so they're not plugged into their energy source anymore but because there's warmer air and more water vapor in the air and because they're getting stronger to begin with. We're also seeing that. Hurricanes are lasting longer at higher intensities over land than they used to and catherine heyhoe says hurricanes and tropical storms are moving farther north before they dissipate. And that's because warmer water is spreading further po word so they can maintain the hurricane status further northward than they used to so. It isn't like hurricanes have never made it to candidate before. Well now though hurricanes are moving up the coast in along halifax neva newfoundland. They're getting storms. That are still at hurricane strength because the warm ocean water is warm enough to keep them going further. North warmer conditions also can cause wind speeds to go up as you add greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. You increase the upper limit of wind. Speed that you can have thermo dynamically in a hurricane now. A very tiny percentage of actual storms reach this speed limit. But a few do and it's very important to recognize that that goes up so that in the future we expect to see and we're beginning to see records. being broken on wind speed in hurricanes. Climate scientists can model or atmosphere and oceans over vast scales. Dial different factors upper down on the computer model and a bunch of consequences fallout and they see all of this as temperatures get warmer. The models don't necessarily show hurricanes getting more frequent at least not in the north atlantic but they predict that hurricanes get stronger and more intense and extreme storms generally dumped more rain but how accurate are these climate models does nature actually behaved the way computers predict what do the observations on the ground. Tell us that after the break. Okay let's take a look at what these look like on the ground. When we think about hurricanes there are few important features to consider their frequency. How many of them. We see in a season there track so their location and.

"Pros who went quickly heater finger on the pulse of the industry. Thanks for joining us for episode. Two hundred and forty-two hey mark don't even know where to start what's going on in the world right now between afghanistan and hurricane ida my heart's pretty broken forever and you'll meet to do to give a big shot up to our partner airlines. When things i think is really cool is all this stuff is gonna afghanistan. You see all the newsreels about the military evacuate and people. I do want to give a big shout out to our partner. United airlines you've been seen on tv how the military's been evacuating people like crazy which you may not know. A lot of private companies are also evacuate in the citizens and the refugees. Mass ghanistan included united airlines. So far they've managed applaud. Fifteen hundred people that you'll see that the news so big shout out to the united airlines. They're cruiser employees families for doing something. That's a bit risky. But it was the right thing for them to do. So they're getting people out of there. We'll keep our fingers crossed from everybody out there. And we also had some servicemen just recently so quick moment of silence for afghanistan and also for the us marines and seamen and soldiers that we've lost just recently all right. Let's get to news stories. Page all right so Oil companies evacuate employees slash production ahead of hurricane ida. They learned listening katrina. So everybody's a shut down the wills We're looking at about one dot six million barrels of production. That are off line right now. The hurricane just made it through the gulf on. There's a bunch of rumors floating around that. That i just want to type. Try to qualify. You're so one that's going around right now. Is that the shells. More platform has become. A moored is now floating around. That is not true. Just heard from the coast guard that the shells more platform is in is in three thousand feet of water properly more down same way with the ursula and the olympics platforms so all the platforms are in place. I did hear that there might have been a noble drilling boat that capsized. Luckily all those people are safe on. There were some injuries.

"hurricanes " Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Okay chuck. You took a salt tablet. You walked it off and now your heads back in the game right my heads back in the game. Where did you leave off. I left off about how space hurricanes are basically presenting a new pioneer frontier in space research. Because we didn't really know they existed. We suspected something like that existed but we certainly had no idea that they were arms of plasma that that spun around at staggering speeds a calm center. But it's not wind. We're talking about these clouds. This is water vapor like this is plasma. These are ions and electrons in just incredible energy and magnetism. It has nothing to do with earthbound hurricane and yet it bears a striking resemblance to. It's very bizarre. Yeah it is interesting in that. There is What you can think of is precipitation in both in that we get the rain on earth and there's his electric precipitation and it's super interesting that there is an eye and they spin and have arms. Yeah which you know Obviously is why they're called hurricanes another one meteorologists in here who in the house of works article that said he thought they might have been called space vortex initially because it was over the north pole and resemble the polar vortex but they went with the space hurricane. Guess because it's a little sexier probably One of the other ways that they're different is the cheers well from where they occur. Obviously the earth's atmosphere From think ground zero or we should probably just say the ground the surface the from the ground about five nine miles up is where you're gonna find an earth hurricane fear. Yeah whereas the space hurricane is in the ionosphere like i mentioned early on and then the sheer size. This one i think was about six hundred miles wide..

"Hey welcome to the short steph. I'm josh and there's chuck and there's the special of but normal producer dave here. I mean especially like in a way like sure by special and all the way. That's right in a romper room. sorta way. that's exactly right. And i'll tell you something else that special chuck. Something very special happened on august. Twenty two thousand fourteen over the Magnetic north pole of this year planet earth. Where for the first time. In the history of humanity we documented. What's known is a space plasma hurricane in that neat it's neat and This is something that wasn't fully well. It was documented here and there but nature communications wrote about it in february of this year. So i think it got a lot more attention Seven years after the fact Almost seven years. But yeah this was like you said about the north pole. It happened over a few hours The result of what happened up there was there were some satellites. That were disrupted The geomagnetic field got a little kinky for a little while the back here on earth Well below the ionosphere we were dislike. I don't know what i was doing on august. Twenty thousand fourteen. I could probably go back and look everybody was remarkable though. i wouldn't thinking about space hurricanes. No because no one really noticed because in august that's a pretty terrible time typically to see the auroras or at least the aurora gory. Alice because the day The days are so much longer than the night. So you can't really see these these fantastic light display's but had you've been able to see the aurora borealis that night you would have been knocked right out of your your hiking boots basically because this was again. A space hurricane doesn't happen every day and we don't really understand fully how they happened or why but they're called space hurricanes because if from what we saw from what this nature communications paper from february twenty twenty one said It bears a striking resemblance to a a a tropical hurricane or cyclone or an atlantic hurricane. Where there's a mass of Energy basically spinning around a calm center. There's a million differences between say earthbound hurricane in space hurricane. But the fact that there there you could even call. Both hurricanes is kind of startling and actually it seems to me chuck kind of like it's presenting like a new pioneer in scientific research. Now like we're like okay. How is this happen more to these. Come from what is going on here. I agree and also have to admit. I was distracted for a minute because i was obsessed with trying to figure out what i was doing on august. Twenty twenty four. Did you ever figure it out. No because i didn't open up my calendar and go back. But i did find out that it was a wednesday so i know we probably weren't recording this no and it was a year after our tv show aired which aired over the course of what like ten days. Yeah you're probably in hiding still may have been. Yeah but i think that's probably a good place we can't break. Can we sure we can. It's a short stuff. Anything goes all right. Let's take a break then. I'll get my head back in the game today and every day. You're doing the impossible with so little time under so much pressure and for businesses around the world it's a.

You don't really get a lot of information. And i mean like in terms of like the national conversation and i just felt you know talking to the team. Latino rebels because we have published some pieces and just falling. What's going on on twitter. You know hurricane iota and then hurricane at a displaced so many. There's so much happening that. I don't think a lot of people are seeing so just to give you a couple of both. Those hurricanes have affected more than five million people with the new york times reported earlier this month and at least one point five million of them are children so now we have this new class of refugees climate refugees and i don't really think that it's in the american consciousness because obviously there's a lot of focus on corona virus and everything that's going on and my first because we're gonna have two guests but my first guest is from the bronx we have fennell. Hey tsia welcome to latino roles radio you want to introduce yourself and to say what you do and why. This story matters to you so much absolutely. Yeah thank you so much for having me. Julio so you know. I i'm from the bronx ceriga. We have a huge latino population here. So i'm really excited to chat about what's going on in you know hunduras end central america. I am the founder of the bronx reading in the bronx book festival as well as honduran <unk> writers and i'm also a publicist in the book publishing industry also writer so i wear many hats so tell me what got you involved in what you've seen especially with the community which is a very. It's a very rich community in the bronx. And what got you involved in paying attention to this. What's going on in central america because me is a puerto rican you know. I feel like we have like the hurricane stamp ever since maria and right and it felt like everyone was talking about puerto rico and then almost kind of like why is nobody talking about central america in honduras and guatemalan and salvadoran. That just happened about a month ago. So what exactly are you doing specifically and share some of that. Because i think it's important absolutely so you know there. There's a lot of stuff happening here in the us right like we were right up against the election when all of this stuff was breaking about the category four storms in the hurricane and everything and so i stand that a lot of folks is attention was really pull towards that. I don't wanna like discount that because that was super important for us but at the same time to your point when all of these other countries were being hit with hurricanes. I feel like so. Many people rallied together. Talk about the puerto rican community like you know fantastic community right there in how everyone came together and obviously non latinos also wanted to like contribute and donate and so i'm sitting here grappling with everything happening with the election and then of course more terrible news coming. You know about honduras in central america with these hurricanes and i was just so upset in so i shut down and became silent and just sort of like what's watching. The media was watching what was happening on social media in house. Like no one is talking about this though. I got really upset right. And i have many <unk>. Influencers in entrepreneurship.

Me pages went up just by individuals. It wasn't really by any credited organizations. And i don't know how much people know about hundred dollars in the government there but it's not the greatest and so of course you know we're like we want to give but it needs to be vetted right all of these political things that are happening in honduras in back home and we're like well we wanna make sure that the money gets the people that need it and so. In addition to just durance the indigenous population there is treated terribly in particularly gotti phone. People are treated terribly.

"The the the really big part of that is not only the we've had some very in hintz hurricane seasons as of late and the storms are staying on track a little a bit longer than what they historically have and about two years ago I I did will leave are really starting to get into having more and more and more and more clients traveling on a very regular basis because when we first started when when when I first started with Pixie we may be traveled I don't know eight to ten clients a year but then once our client count we started to take up where where we had clients travelling at least every month that was kind of where I started to do a little bit of research on how much hurricane the impact central Florida and what the seasons are and what I what I found was peak season in the Atlantic Basin for hurricanes is September tenth so you go in like the two to three weeks prior to September knbr ten or the two to three weeks after September tenth what you're most likely going to find is that you're going to have at least East one named storm in the Atlantic Basin at that time whether it's a tropical depression whether it's just something that's kind of loosely forming or whether it's a bona fide hurricane but over the last Hundred Years on September tenth there have been fifty storms within that hundred years that have been active in the Atlantic Basin as a hurricane on September tenth so you really that September tenth week you're looking at a fifty fifty shot as to whether there's going to be a hurricane in the Atlantic basin not saying it's headed toward central Florida but an active hurricane in the Atlantic basin or not so fifty fifty percent shot as you get closer in to that November range you read more of a ten percent shot and if you back up into the very early part of hurricane season is say for instance between July tenth and August first you run less than less than five percent chance so that really ticks up beyond a twenty percent chance beginning August twentieth and ending about October Twentieth So August Twentieth October twentieth you run anywhere between the twenty to fifty percent chance of having an active hurricane in the Atlantic basin so and that's my meteorology report but what you have to realize to with that is that that doesn't necessarily mean that you shouldn't travel during that time absolute Louis it just means you need to be prepared for a possibility of something to happen in all the years that we've been doing this I think I've only really encountered where Disney has closed three times in ten years so that's something that can that are too because in reality it means that the storm doesn't actually hit the Orlando era airport air area so with the fifty percent Mansa doesn't mean it's going to hit Florida it means it could hit somewhere out in the Caribbean it means a lot of.

"About university of kentucky basketball and has grown is going to launch his own candidacy for the democratic nomination for senate in kentucky. He just announced he's putting together a set an exploratory committee. There's been lots of controversy about matt losing his job bob on a couple of state television shows and whether or not amy mcgrath's campaign had anything to do with it which they absolutely deny matt's writing a book about mitch mcconnell. It's drama filled and so here's a fun fact. Beth and i went into college with matt jones. I've known match since i was seventeen years old and he is very smart and he is very driven and i still still believe that amy mcgrath is the right candidate for kentucky. I think that this drama <hes> will do no favors for the kentucky democratic party. Freddie also matt has been in this sort of long narrative about will-he-won't-he run every time. There's a race house race. I think there was talk about it. Last time. Mitch mcconnell was up for re election or maybe ran policy. It's an ongoing thing i get it. I get the appeal but i wish we can move on desperately really trying to speak very carefully. If you can't tell i respect the really media empire that jones has built <hes> and i think they do really get an interesting work listed in the field of like recovering attorneys that we both participate in he's a star he's really are absolutely he took that they took that law degree and transferred it into the career that he always wanted good for him. I think in kentucky we have a history of taking are celebrated celebrated figures who are sports stars or sports adjacent stars and putting them in political office and i would like us to change that it i think if you consider what a united states senator does it is just not close for me in thinking that amy mcgrath is the right handed it and here's what this really pulls out if name sarah you've spoken to this a number of times we all all walk around repeating things like a woman. It can't be president yet. 'cause the country's not ready. Aiming mcgrath can't meet mitch mcconnell but maybe matt jones could and we repeat them as that. We have no agency on process. We've agency in the process. I i think that the more amy mcgrath travels the state of kentucky and she is out there doing it far western kentucky far eastern kentucky northern in kentucky. If you follow her on instagram she is hustling all over the state and really spending time with voters and having really spent time with her in person ourselves. I can tell you that she sits across from you. She looks you in the eye. She listens to you. She disagrees with you to your face in a respectful way. I think i have a lot of difference with amy over the role of the federal government and i also think that i could roll up my sleeves next to her and we could get things done because amy is about not doing what is straight and honest and good and what makes progress she will not let the perfect get in the way of doing better and i think in that way she is so representative of kentucky values statewide and so if i worked for her right now i would just keep matt jones jones name out of my mouth and i would keep doing what i'm doing. I would really follow the joe. Biden model like i'm running against mitch mcconnell the end <hes> mhm and and i would hold onto that what worries me too is just because we have people in california saying i've given her money. We've traveled recently and we had so so many people tell us oh yeah i like already given her money and she is gonna need a law of money to defeat mitch mcconnell. I don't wanna lose use those people you know we've we've captured the nation's attention. She's captured that donor information. They're giving her money. Some people already giving her money monthly and i don't want to be like oh. Will we hold on. We're gonna have a primary..

"An amicus brief means friend of the court so in these cases the united states is not a party. They did not have to say anything here but they chose to say something because the attorney general and the equal employment opportunity commission enforce title seven seven entitled seven applies to the federal government as an employer so that's their interest in coming into these cases and saying high court. Here's our opinion. The the two cases are altitude express versus zarka and bostock versus clayton county georgia in <unk> express an employee says he was fired fired because he was gay and he says that violates title seven the district court in that case the first court that heard it dismissed that claim but on appeal to the second circuit hit the court reversed and said that sexual orientation is a subset of sex discrimination in the second case out of georgia a child welfare services coordinator said that once the county learned he was gay it falsely accused him of mismanaging public money as a pretense for firing him because he's gay i mentioned mentioned those facts because in addition to arguing in this brief that sexual orientation is not part of title seven and the government basically accepts the employers reasons for firing these plaintiffs on their face and it's kind of offensive. I think the way it's worded and the briefs. We'll put a link so that you can read them yourself. If you have that interest but government says sex doesn't mean sexual orientation it didn't win. Title seven was passed it. It hasn't since then that discriminating because of sexual orientation doesn't involve treating members of one sex less favourably than similarly situated members of the other. They say it's not that he's gay. It's that you have to compare how they treat a gay man to how they treat a gay woman and then here's where things get really interesting interesting in the briefs and you can really see where the government is coming from. The court has protected interracial relationships for a very long time mm-hmm and has said that if you're discriminating against people for being an interracial relationship that counts as as racial discrimination and the government has to differentiate that associational discrimination from same sex relationships here and they say here's why those those two things are different because the difference in race. I'm quoting from the government brief here. This is not my statement because a difference in race rarely makes to otherwise similarly situated individuals dissimilar nearly all race-based distinctions constitute unlawful race based discrimination by contrast sex based distinctions are not invariably invidious because they can reflect physiological differences between men and women as the lawfulness of sex-specific bathrooms athems makes clear an employer discriminates against employees in same sex relationships. Thus does not violate title seven as long as it treats men in same sex relationships in the same way as women in same sex relationships and so i feel like that couple of sentences illustrates that what the government wants is for the a court to interpret title seven through a really traditional view of relationships chips gender sex marriage and i think that's important to understand and the final point of the government is that congress has basically ratified ride the understanding that title seven doesn't include sexual orientation because every congress since nineteen seventy five.

They did not tell them to evacuate in Houston. Because years before there was evacuation in a hurricane came and people died on the road trying to evacuate so shocking that that that happened. But they did because the voice which is full and they were heated. Yeah. People didn't know where to go. So it's really difficult. But that's why sometimes it's good to know. Hey, you know, maybe you make the decision listened the hurricanes coming it's a week out. We're not gonna take the chance. Let's just go and get out of town. Whether or not you have evacuation orders, or at least have information with us to know. Okay. If we've got to get out in a hurry. I know there's a shelter here. There's a pet shelter here in this town. We can go here. You know, it can always help, you know, not a lot of people have resources, unfortunately for it. That's why I think was great to see, you know, the humanity of the people coming out. I mean, even you saw that that photo that went viral the dog carrying his own dog food around, you know, and then he was finally reunited with the owner things like that. But so so circumstances sometimes you can't prepare for it. But that's why also too, you know, there was so many great people came out, and we're rescuing pets and wings of flight and places that we're bringing dog food and saying I'll take these animals are will rehouse them if they can't exactly and what happened is before Harvey happened that a lot of the shelters will already emptying their shelters and the animals will going up to other different shelters that weren't in the flood area. So that they could still be in shelters to be adopted out there, but the shelters stunning Huston and other places within open for people to go to with their pets or to put their pets in their, unfortunately, some of the shelters, some shelters were flooded. But for example, I known at lantern with grenade. That animal control that I work with they took an a whole lot of cats. So from the shelters down there who needed space for to get pets that were off the street or a strays or at everything old lost their families. They needed space to house them. So they got their animals to come up here. So that we could adopt them out up here. So that the left space for the animals that really needed down there. So I wonder who's going to adopt that ten foot alligator did you see that? There was video of. I mean, this is amazing this why you have to really careful after hurricane when you go back in besides snakes, and rats and all kinds of creatures. Everybody gets displays everybody tries to find high ground and safe ground because your house is not safe to be in on the second floor, a snake a rat, a raccoon and possum doesn't know that you know, they'll go up there. And I don't know if you saw the video it was incredible of these ant colonies, just China. I mean, they probably were, you know, the size of even know like a small dog, and it was just ant colonies floating on the water. They all got together. And they were on. I guess to get to not drown and then roaches. I mean, it's unbelievable. What things will do to survive? But apparently some guy went back to his house a couple of days after the flooding. Started to recede and walked in. And there was a ten foot alligator in his house, and there's video of them bringing the you know, he actually had to call obviously get the alligator out, but. So yeah, that's going to the shelter but increase. Yeah. But also, speaking of the shelter, and the humane society, which was amazing during all of this. You know, they do other things. This is what they're there for emergencies. It's not just a adopting out animals. They are the main support for so much and you had a horrific week not too long ago. Talk about what happened. Well, yeah. The humane society the United States, they do a lot of dogfighting busts. They weren't involved in this one. But I know that they gave some good advice to the police department of this one. But this is this happened in Polk. Georgia Polk County Georgia, which is very close to pretty close to where I live. And so there was a big dog fighting bust that happened and a suspected Doke fighter. And so this guy had been I think it was back in two thousand I think he'd be prosecuted. But somehow the case didn't he didn't go to jail, and I think he had around thirty plus docks at that point. Well, now he has over hundred. Wow. And I didn't go to the first -cation, but I did go to the second location. And even though I can't talk about the particulars of the case because but I was involved in that case in assessing dogs, and as a behavior expert to assess behavior as well, as what is to document, and along with me was my friend and colleague had a poll who is works with state farm. So she does a lot of the disaster preparedness stuff, but also she's a great photographer. And so along the she came as well to take pictures, which have Avital when it comes to getting evidence taken the right kind of pictures taken right kind of video and going into a suspected dogfighting a place where dog fighting dogs that kept you know, you have the Doak staked out. Do you have the dogs on chains? And you have what's called agitation circles. So these Doak never come off the chains. They just their agitation circles, and it's the PawSox that they were a round the. Steaks, and basically where the chains. Let them wander they will wonder it normally it's in a circle you find that is in a circle. And then there is a dog. That's just out of reach right next to this dog on the agitators. There's another one, but the two dogs can't get to each other. They just at that point with a concrete to each other. And that's why they called agitation circles because you've got all of these dogs that can see each other. All around the prophecy. They can't get to each other and fighting dogs. So we'll the agitation, and that you know, that you're retaliation that frustration builds up, and that's how they get these dogs to to the point when they actually fighting them in the fighting pits to get so because of these of the way they kept. But again, not talking about the particulars of this case, but is interesting off towards about what where do these fighting dogs go. So the difficulty that we have is that these are not normal dogs. Right. And they cannot go to just your average family, and they cannot hang out by some Connaught hang out and just be sociable with other dogs. So these rescues have a hard time when they come to get them as in where do they go? And that's what when I've sat down and interviewed Heather ofter. We had assisted on this case. We started. We talked about our experiences of what happens to these fighting dogs after they are released and they go into rescue. And that is the interview that we have now. All right. Let's take a listen..
