It was stressful but freeman brown. Had a job to do. She says we're no match for nature. But this is what we've trained for. This is what the resilience core was built for like. Firefighters put out fires and waste collectors. Keep the city. Clean the job of the new orleans. Resilience core is to help the city be resilient to shocks. Crises and climate change launched by the city and october twenty twenty as a pilot to run for two years.

White House Climate Advisor Says Despite Recent Disasters, Don't Lose Hope
"Deadly flooding wildfires heat waves and droughts these have been the headlines all summer in the us with similar disasters around the world to visiting new jersey earlier this week to survey the damage from hurricane ida president biden said we're at an inflection point every part of the country is getting hit by stream weather and We're now living in real what the country is gonna look like and if we don't do so we can't turn it back very much but we can prevent it from getting worse. Abidin administration is pushing bills. Which would be the most sweeping climate change policies ever enacted in the us. But right now. They're still facing major hurdles in congress here to talk about this with us is president biden's national climate advisor gina mccarthy. We'll come back to all things considered thank scott. I know you often talk about the fact that you are optimistic. And even more optimistic than you've been before about enacting the climate policies. But it's been a really frightening summer and a lot of people see these disasters and they wonder. Is it just too late to prevent the worst of climate change. Why is that view wrong. Because a lot of people haven't first of all having these disasters happen and be experienced personally by one out of three people in the united states. Which is what's happened over the past just few months. It's not the way. I really wanted people to get familiar with climate and get active. It certainly would have liked action earlier but this is a tremendous opportunity. We have and. I don't want people to give up hope and i'll tell you why i'm not giving up. Hope number one. I think the president is on target in what he's asking congress to support. I think we'll get it over the finish line but also i want people to understand that we have opportunities with already existing solutions on climate. That will get us where we need to go and get us on. The trajectory to net zero i- job is to deliver the solutions. That's what this package that. The president has been negotiating in pushing his all about
Beached Rat Carcasses Indicate Mass Rodent Death During Ida
"Gotha missed today. The headline says beached rat carcasses indicate mass rodent death during ida experts. Say they were talking about the number of beach of of rat carcasses that have been found along the beaches of new york city since that storm came through. And here's what bobby corn corrigan. A longtime pest control expert and former rhode intelligence for the new york city department of health. Set with this with this particular storm. Any rats that were in the sewers were either crushed by the current or swept out into the rivers now rat populations in new york city number typically in the millions right so i tweeted out this story today and then i got a bunch of responses along these lines which is peace from the cdc from a number of years ago that says rats can swim or wade in the water for up to three days without drowning. They like to swim a very good at it. Iraq survived being flushed down the toilet and might even get back into the same building by swimming back the same way
"ida" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"Hurricane ida made landfall in louisiana the us oil sector remains crippled around eighty percent of offshore oil and gas production in the gulf of mexico is still offline and operators are struggling to bring production backup to capacity. So what made idaho so different from other storms joining me now. Is wall street journal. Us energy editor miguel muccio. Hi miguel. Thanks for being here my pleasure. So let's step back to nearly ten days ago when ida hit tell us about the impact. This storm had for onshore and offshore oil production in louisiana. Well ten days ago when the storm hit it hit pretty much right in the heart of the us oil and gas production infrastructure for offshore production. Right it sort of near the mouth of the mississippi and louisiana and most of the us offshore production is clustered right in that area that's significant because us offshore oil production makes up about seventeen percent of overall oil production in the united states in about five percent of gas production. Obviously you know these companies that operate in the shallow and deep waters of the gulf of mexico. they're accustomed to impacts from hurricanes. This is an almost annual event for them in which they have to shutdown some of these facilities temporarily and then turn them back on once. The storm passes but this time has been very different. This storm caused significantly more damage on shore as well as offshore compared to other hurricanes and as a result it's been very slow recovered. Tell us a little bit more about the impact after ida compared to hurricane katrina. This is the most significant impact since katrina. So there's been quite a few hurricanes in the last fifteen years but you would have to go back to katrina and then another storm that hit around that same time rita to see a significant impact of this nature on us offshore production. And what happened at that. Time was a little different. Because of course katrina was different katrina. Hit this area as a fairly powerful hurricane but it was it was more of a flooding event. After the fact the fact that levees broke inundated new orleans and affected the region in this case the impact is more from the direct wins of aita which were significantly stronger as a cat for category four hurricane when it hit the area and you know that affected of ports along the mississippi river that help service these offshore facilities but also refineries also gas processing plants in a bunch of related infrastructure that the oil industry basically needs to operate so now more than a week after ida what are the major challenges that remain for producers trying to bring capacity back to where it was before the storm. The producers are still in the process of inspecting a lot of these facilities. Which as you can imagine as a painstaking process when you have oil platforms descending hundreds and thousands of feet into the deep waters of the gulf of mexico so in many cases what these companies are still doing is trying to physically get people out to these platforms to inspect them and they have to look you know not only for potential leaks and damage but just make sure that everything can be turned back on safely so that process is still very much underway and it has been hampered in part because of some of the places onshore where they would normally take off from in terms of helicopters. And things like that. They were damaged so they are having to take off in some cases from different facilities different places or come up with contingency plans basically to do the work that they need to do to turn the offshore oil platforms back on one of the challenges that the companies are facing that their workforce was affected a lot of the workers who work on offshore rigs. They do so kind of in cycles. So that the way that it works is that you may work a shift. And you're going to be on offshore rigs for several weeks and then you come back and you're at home for several weeks. And that's the way a lot of these facilities are staffed and obviously the hardest hit areas in louisiana in following ida where a lot of rural parishes in state in the southeastern portion of the state. So there are many workers who go out work on these facilities who were personally impacted by this and are having to deal with personal issues at this time. Despite all the efforts and challenges you've just explained the impact on the oil markets. Hasn't been that significant so far. Why not this event occurred at a time when we're seeing some softening in oil demand due to the pandemic and the fact that we've had an increase in cases in some parts of the world. So normally i think what you would be seeing. This time is probably a significant decline in oil prices as a result of those factors. And instead it's been it's been kind of flat but we also had large inventories of gasoline built up at the end of the summer for example so even a refineries were significantly impacted by this event. It hasn't really translated to impacts for consumers yet. Is the oil industry changing the way at. Thanks about major storms like ida going forward so far. I haven't seen any major indications that they're changing based on this one storm but clearly. This is an industry that has a lot of money at stake in these facilities along the gulf of mexico and as we see concerns about climate change rising sea levels hurricane intensity etc. These are all facilities. That are literally in harm's way and investments that are threatened by by the potential of climate change to to make these kinds of events more frequent. So it's a conversation that i think the companies are beginning to have. I would say. But i haven't seen any examples of concrete changes that are happening yet but this is.

The white house is hoping to turn to its economic agenda marketplaces and dealers on the line with more of those priorities. That's right david. The white house is looking to pass more than four trillion dollars in domestic spending. Which includes that bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that biden is arguing is even more pressing after hurricane ida devastated the gulf coast and left some of the northeast flooded and he approved major disaster declarations up north. And he's also touring the damage in new york and new jersey today. And you know that he's going to be pushing that build back better agenda in the process and the bulk of the spending would come as a budget reconciliation package.

"ida" Discussed on Made of Mettle
"To pay court costs it said that this event was pivotal and motivating ida to eventually pick up in harness. The power of the pen ida would write an article about her heart experience with the train company calling out the injustices in unfair treatment sheet endured around eighteen. Ninety one ardor began building her extraordinary career in journalism under the pen name. Lola ida would write in published several articles under this pen name while also acquiring owners credits for newspaper outlets and maintaining her teaching career but either wrote controversial articles criticizing the less than subpar conditions that were forced upon the segregated schools attended by african americans after her school became aware that it was either writing these articles. She was promptly led. Go as a teacher. Although it seemed devastating at the time this would be one of the best things to happen to ida following her termination. Ida was able to focus our efforts completely on writing and publishing ida spotlight would shine on the many injustices in civil rights issues endured by freed african americans one of the more prominent methods of intimidation were suffered by african americans. At the time was the threat of lynching a lynching was when a person was hanged usually by a mob from retrea or other highs spot until they died. These lynchings were usually exacted. By local mobs against african americans for trumped up our non existent crimes. One such lynching hit close to home. When one of ida's friends became a victim. After this event ida turned her target right on the lynching campaign that was plaguing african americans around eighteen ninety. Two idaho wrote several pieces publicly denouncing lynching an expose about a particularly terrible lynching in her neighborhood of memphis the expose enrage the town residents. Ida's newspaper was stormed and her office. Equipment and peace of mind were all completely destroyed. Luckily ida was not present in her home at the time as she was travelling. In order to learn more information about the injustice of lynching nationwide after learning about the tragic destruction offer newspaper in the threat on her life issued ever return to memphis ardy decided to remain in the north. I'd have began work for a newspaper. Titled the new york age. It was here that ida published her groundbreaking report of the epidemic of lynching within the country ida would publish another pivotal piece titled a red record. Which again focused on criticizing the practice in basis of lynchings against african americans around eighteen. Ninety three ida also began to travel overseas to speak on the injustice of lynchings and unfair treatment for african americans in the united states. Garnering international support in the same year. I advocated against the world's columbian exposition. Which had barred african americans from participation as well as was perpetuating untrue stereotypes about african americans again. You guys know. I love a good time line cross so i had to mention this wonderful tidbit. Ida had written in distributed in article titled the reason why the colored american is not in the world columbian exposition. This endeavor was funded and supported by two very important individuals in. Ida's life her future husband. And none other than frederick douglass. Like who would have thought that frederick douglass was getting around like he was like his light is a testament to the power of networking. I swear. I'm just always so amazed by how much overlap there wasn't history with these individuals. I mean truly incredible item married. Her future husband ferdinand barnett a lawyer and newspaper editor in eighteen. Ninety five they went on to have four children all while continuing to participate and advocate to crucial civil rights work not only with ida active in the anti lynching crusade but also in the women's rights movement for many years are also maintaining her family and home life as a mother. Her work never ceased through. Ida's combine efforts with other like minded activists. Several associations were formed with the mission of furthering african american issues. For example ida is recognized as a founding member of the national association of colored women the national equal rights leaders the negro fellowship league as well as the national association for the advancement of colored people ardo was also credited with following in her family's legacy in the creation of an african american school towards the end of her life after working a few years as a member of the chicago municipal court around nineteen thirty about a year before her death idol would go on to run for a position in the illinois state senate while she didn't win the fact that she even ran was pretty amazing. Woman was a powerhouse during a time. Were being an african american. And a woman was equated with weakness sadly on march twenty fifth nineteen thirty one i e wills passed away. She was sixty eight years. Old ida was often described as ambitious visionary and relentless in her pursuit of equal rights for african americans and women from the sudden death of both of her parents to her newspaper being destroyed in her life threatened to the loss of jobs in constantly seeing her fellow colleagues killed in lynched. how much courage and bravery it must have taken to investigate these lynchings. Viewing these atrocities face. I at ground zero and still have the tenacity to continue on to right to challenge to put a spotlight on the horror that her people were facing in not to turn away to tell their stories so that the victim would never die but live immortal within her words. Ida b wells encompassed so many characteristics that made her hero but it was her pledge to the pursuit of truth injustice. That really hit home for me. And with her being a journalist. I had to end today's episode on one of her epic and quite quite moral quotes the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them and glaringly unapologetically brilliantly.

A black woman such as ida standing up for herself with unacceptable to say the least ida was forcibly removed from the train. But not without a fight it was reported that ida was able to injure one of the men though. I'm sure not at all what was deserved based on her treatment. But i didn't stop the fight there.

When i watched not wanted that ida lupino contribution there was not necessarily so much in terms of setting up for the cinematography itself or any of that but the articulation of how the actors were going to play certain parts of it. And i think she had the best cast in that particular film that she ever got to work with and that she had the strongest influence over them especially given that the film that more people know her for the hitchhiker she had men. Who deliberately did not want to take direction from a woman who were deliberately fighting tooth and nail. Am i correct about that. Yes when you think about not wanted item.

You could tell exactly what she was thinking in any moment and to my mother. That was everything. Because i think for her when she was reflecting on this it was more about the fact that very few actresses actually were allowed to portray themselves as having brains of any kind and ida lupino was as you definitely discuss in your play. She's the queen of the bees but she's also the queen of the brains absolutely even in fluffy things when she was younger. You could see her thinking you could see her and she was a hard work.

It's delicious and it was a wonderful bit of comedy that also brought when into the play as as less than ideal and more of a real person who kind of interact and get involved with this and have fun with this and again that's part of the development of play. There are also three short scenes in the play in which ida assumes characters in gwen mills and the characters there's art is completely the opposite of the ark of ida in gwynn's gwen grow closer as the play develops and the characters that plays grow more antagonistic towards gwen as the play develops so it was a mean thing to me.

I can't help but thinking if I were in her position at this point. I'd be like you're on your own out. I think if I were in her position at this point I might have drowned. I cannot imagine how heavy a wet bustle. Gown is. Yeah it depends on what kind of cage colonel. And she had at some point after this rescue someone asked Lewis what had given her the strength to do this. She answered quote. I don't know I ain't particularly strong. The Lord Almighty gives it to me when I need it. That's all this eighteen. Eighty one rescue sparked a second wave of fame for Ida Lewis although maybe not quite as dramatic as the earlier one on October eleventh of that year. She was awarded the. Us government's lifesaving medal of the first class. This metal had been established by an act of Congress in eighteen. Seventy four and Louis was the first woman to receive it. The lifesaving services eighteen eighty one annual report described her as having quote unquestionable nerve. Presence of mind and dashing courage on November fifth of eighteen eighty one. Lewis was also written up in Frank. Leslie's illustrated newspaper. Lewis continued on with her work at the lighthouse. Her brother Hosie died in eighteen. Eighty three and her sister. Hattie died the next year. They both had to Burke Yellow Sus. Ida's mother rarely left her bed after their deaths. Ida had always been Christian but after her siblings died she became truly devout joining the church. She had been married in and being baptized there. On June eighth eighteen eighty four. She also started attending services daily at the height of Lewis's earlier fame. The island had seen hundreds of visitors a month but by the eighteen eighties. Lime Rock was a solitary place again. Ida and her Mother did not get many visitors and after the Radia died in eighteen eighty seven IDA was mostly alone as she got older brother. Rudolph helped her tend to the light but either loved it on the island in her words. Quote there's a piece on this rock that you don't find onshore. There are hundreds of boats going in and out of this harbour. It's part of my happiness to know. They are depending on me to guide them to safety. 1896 lighthouse keepers in the US were classified as civil servants as part of ongoing civil service reform. Ten years later Louis carried out her last documented rescue. A friend came to visit her and capsized or boat. Just shy of the island stock. Lewis's friend Cornelia. Chadwick tried to use this rescue to get Lewis a pension through Andrew Carnegie Hero Fund the Fund that recognized acts of heroism happened after the fund was established in one thousand nine hundred four for her part. Luis didn't think pulling her friend. Out of the water right by the lighthouse really counted as a rescue but it seemed that Carnegie was moved by all of Lewis's earlier acts of heroism in nineteen. O Six. He decided to give her a thirty dollar a month pension out of his own pocket which IDA put into a bank account for her brother to leave to him after her death also in one thousand nine hundred six an act of Congress established the American corrosive honor Lewis became the first person to receive it in one thousand nine hundred seven over. Lewis was still being recognized for her work. The job of lighthouse keeper was dramatically changing. It had been a job that was mostly about keeping and maintaining a lighthouse and sometimes rescuing people but it started to involve more and more administrative work. There were more forms and were procedures. Were records to be kept basically just a lot more bureaucracy and none of those things were really Lewis's strengths. There was also an increasing focus on automation and efficiency and Lewis became concerned that this trend was going to put her out of a job and separate her from a light that she described almost as her own child. In one thousand nine eleven IDA Lewis Age sixty nine was still tending. The light on lime rock with her brother. Rudolph's help in late October of that year he arrived when morning and he found her on the floor of her bedroom where she had probably had a stroke. She never regained consciousness and she died on October. Twenty Fifth Nineteen Eleven. Some of her friends and relatives attributed her sudden death to stress brought on by all the changes to the lighthouse administration and her fears about her own future in it during her life she had saved at least eighteen people from drowning. The actual number may have been more than twenty five flags were flown at half staff and bells were told all over Newport in Lewis's honor on ever funeral. Six soldiers from Fort Adams served as pallbearers. A new lighthouse keeper ever Jensen was chosen as Lewis's successor. He moved into the keeper's residence with his wife and not long after they had a daughter who they named Ida Lewis Johnson after her death. Lewis's friend Cornelia Chadwick circulated a letter that she had gotten from Andrew Carnegie that read in part quote. Your kind note gives me one source of satisfaction. A happy in favored man. Am I to be enabled to help such heroines as Ida Lewis who has passed away? She had no future to fear. Having made the best of this life fortunate. She was having you as a friend. Let us try to emulate her in the service of our fellows in one thousand nine hundred eighty four lime rock was renamed Ida Lewis Rock in nineteen twenty five. The Lighthouse Service changed the name of the lighthouse to Ida Lewis Lighthouse. Even though the policy was to name lighthouses only after geographical features the lighthouse. That Lewis had tended was deactivated in July of nineteen twenty seven and replaced with an automated late on a steel tower and then its function as a lighthouse ended in nineteen sixty three. I don't know if that lighthouse renaming Was Technically Okay. Because the rock had been renamed after her or if they were just like you know what? Forget that whole standard. We're going to do it this way. By the time. The lighthouse stopped operating. The Island itself had been sold many years earlier. The IDA Lewis Yacht Club bought it in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight and built a boardwalk between it and the mainland as we said earlier. It wasn't that far to the nearest point. The Yacht Club formally opened on the island on July Fourth Nineteen Twenty nine sixty years after Newport had celebrated Idol Louis Day in nineteen ninety seven. The coastguard unveiled new keeper class of Buoy tenders with the first of fourteen ships of that class named the IDA Lewis. The IDA Lewis was commissioned on April Twelfth Nineteen Ninety seven and a station from Newport. The crew of the IDA Lewis also paid for the restoration of Lewis's headstone at the common burial ground in Newport. Today her boat. The rescue is in the collection of the Yachting Museum at Fort Adams. I tried to look into whether this museum is still a place that can be visited. That's a little hard to determine giving the fact that everything's closed right now definitely cannot visit right now when we recorded sure can't on February twenty seven. Th of twenty seven teen idol. Louis was honored with a Google doodle for her seventy fifth birthday and in two thousand. Eighteen or road was named in her honor at Arlington National Cemetery. Making her the first woman to be so honoured. I also thought that we would end on a quote from her which I particularly love which I also feel like is appropriate. Given the time that we're living in right now. She said quote if there were some people out there who needed my help. I would get into my boat and go to them even if I knew. I couldn't get back. Wouldn't you and also like if you would like to know more about her. You can read a book called. Lighthouse keepers daughter the remarkable true story of heroin IDA Lewis S- one of the sources for this episode. You also have some listener mail for us. Do by just a totally delightful coincidence. Tiffany left this note on our facebook wall yesterday. Tiffany says so. I just recently listens to the Flan and aisles lighthouse podcast. I'm that person that has to listen from the beginning and CANNOT SKIP ahead anyways. Tracy mentioned that she would like the lighthouse job. Does working from home make you feel like you're working at the lighthouse and secondly are you enjoying it as much as you thought you would anyways stay healthy and I'll continue to listen? Maybe I'll catch up in a year or two. Thank you so much. Tiffany for this. Fortuitously coincidentally very well timed question. So we talked the. I think the only other episode that we've done this really about a lighthouse. Because when I landed on this idea for an episode I was just making sure we had not done something super-duper similar and I remember saying in that episode that I felt like I would really like being a lighthouse keeper. I think when that episode came out. I don't think I was married yet. I'm not even sure I must have been at least dating my husband by that point But I have actually been working from home on this podcast since two thousand fourteen and I also have always been a pretty introverted person and so long before the current pandemic I would sort of reached a point and a week where I would kind of think to myself. When is the last time I went outside? Perhaps I should go outside today. Vitamin D.'s. Good free so in a very strange way the the current. I don't think we have escalated to a shelter in place here in Massachusetts yet but the governor did a stay at home directive and it weirdly does not feel that much different from my typical day to day life except my husband is with me. That's not like it was before. So yeah it's it's a very strange thing where I know a lot of folks who are a lot more social and a lot more extroverted than I am who have really been struggling with the staying at home where I have been sort of like. Yeah this is. This feels In terms of my day today workplace functioning. It feels a lot like normal. So thanks Tiffany for this question. It just it delights me so much that it happens to be asked right before we were going to record an episode about a lighthouse keeper For reference that episode originally came out in August of two thousand thirteen. Okay Patrick and I were dating. Yeah I had not moved no in with them. No so you were still living alone and had been for awhile so yeah I am. I'm telling you I thought I was GonNa go bananas having to stay home and a.
