MTA launches first real-time digital subway map
"Unveiled a new digital map of the city subways, WCBS reporter Marla Diamond says the first major upgrade of the map in over 40 years. Designers took the best of the iconic big Nellie and hurt subway maps and merge them into an easy to read digital map that uses the MTs own data streams to update riders in real time. They have simplified and incredibly complex system in a way we've never seen before, says New York City Transit Interim president Sarah Feinberg. No longer will people have to decipher a range of in station signs. You can plan your commute from the palm of your hand. The digital design firm Working Co. Of Brooklyn did the map for free as the MD struggles with an unprecedented drop in ridership. Without funding. We could see the reality is we could see lines on this map vanished before our eyes and that's something that no one wants to see. At the Fulton Street Station. Marla Diamond. WCBS news radio 8 80.

Socialists Make A Strong Comeback In Bolivia
"Socialist appear to have made a strong comeback yesterday in Bolivia's presidential election. All of the votes have yet to be counted. But the handpicked candidate of ousted President Evo Morales seems to have taken a big lead in the first round. Those are supporters of socialist Louise Arcee, celebrating in downtown La Paz. NPR's Philip Reeves has been following this from his base in Rio de Janeiro and joins me now. Hi, Phil. Hi. Remind us what set the stage for this election. For the past year, Bolivia has been ruled by an interim president from the political right. Yeah, This goes back to late last year, when Morales was pushed out and went into exile. His opponent said he tried to rig an election. They cited an audit of that election by the Organization of American States that showed numerous irregularities. Others dispute those allegations and say Morales was the victim of a coup on elected interim government took over headed by right winger call Ginny Anya's. It's had a rough ride and yes crackdown on the opposition. Several dozen of Morales is indigenous supporters were killed by security forces during protests which polarized country of more Then the pandemic arrived in the electoral authorities postpone the election twice and that triggered mass protests and Nation and the nation wide blockade, and people were worried that yesterday's election would bring more unrest. But that didn't happen happily. So with all of this, how certain are we that the socialist Louise Arcee is actually one? Yeah, I mean, it doesn't appear that he's run out, won the first round outright, his main rival, Carlos Messer, today, conceded Saying that people have to recognize there's being a winner. The interim president Ginny Anya's tweeted, congratulations to us in his running mate Very early on Mexico in Argentina, You know, two big regional players politically on the left, have publicly congratulated him. And so, by the way is the U. S. Polls before the election did show us He was well ahead in the lead, you know as well in the lead, but his chances of winning out right in the first round weren't Sena's full. That great unofficial vote count indicate he's actually done that. But this hasn't been officially confirmed by the electoral authorities. They say the official count could take several days to complete. Can you say Maura about thie us in support of our say the U. S. Did concur with the allegations of border voter fraud committed by more Alice? Yeah, when they ran, it was pushed out. The Trump administration was frankly delighted, is a huge figure on the Latin American left. He was Bolivia's first indigenous president. He ruled for nearly 14 years. He's credited with growing the economy a lot not least through nationalization and lifting millions out of poverty with the help of a C who was his economy minister. S O. The prospect of a socialist comeback in Bolivia isn't likely to go down well in in Washington, the right wing tends to bracket morale is with Venezuelan Cuba and you know they saw his fall is a defeat for international socialism. But the State Department certainly saw the writing on the wall and has recently been saying it will work with whoever is legitimately elected. That's NPR's Philip Greaves. Thank you so

That's when evil Morales was driven from power after 14 years. Morales was Bolivia's first indigenous president, a Socialist admired by leftists worldwide. He stepped down amid mass protests triggered by US supported allegations that he rigged last year's election.

New York - Front-Door Boarding, Fare Collection Resumes on MTA Buses
"For people who write M T a bus is for one thing. You once again have to pay fares. No more free rides on buses and you can now enter the bus through the front door. I spoke with New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg this morning on WCBS front door boarding is resuming. Today we've heard anecdotally from writers about some crowding issues on some bus lines. Will front door boarding help without you think I think it will. Look, this is New York City and a lot of people write the best in the subways who are always gonna have some crowding issues and you're you're probably never gonna be able to get the 6 ft that you would like. But we do think that this will help quite a bit. So this really opens up the front of the bus gives people the ability to spread out a little bit while you know, maintaining a lot of space between writers and bus operators. We've put up a barrier between the operator and writers so we can really minimize minimized sort of the air circulation between the two but also give writers more space. Some bus drivers have said the empty has not done enough to protect them. How would you respond to that? Well, look, I you know, we have been hit incredibly hard by Cove it you know, we set months where we had thousands of people quarantined. Many became sick. We've unfortunately lost. 131 of our colleagues. And so you know there is there is a lot of anxiety it empty a among our workforce and for good reason. Thes were the heroes who were out every day. All day all night moving the folks who needed to get to work. Not just moving New York through this crisis, but really giving the heart the ability to survive this crisis. So, look, I mean, this is what we're doing to protect our workforce and also to protect our riders. Masks were readily available. We give pee peed all of our operators. We've put this barrier up between the operator and the riders. To protect the operator, you know, but we also we also realised you need to do more until over the fall. We're going to be put it. We're going to be installing an even more significant barrier between operators and riders as well. New York City
President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker
"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here

That's done to Charles. Schwab Corporation is going to be acquiring. Td Ameritrade this is a story. We we first reported last week. Td Ameritrade is now naming Stephen Boyle as the interim president president and CEO suspending their CEO. Search because obviously this will be taken care of with with this deal. Charles Schwab is offering issue is going to be issuing one point eight three seven shares for every td ameritrade share. That's out there We'll continue to keep an eye on says Charles Schwab saying that. Toronto Dominion Bank's going to be holding about thirteen percent of a stake in the combined company. You could see right now. Charles Schwab shares which ran up last week on. This news are right now down by about twenty two cents to forty seven ninety eight so maintaining basically the gains that they had seen last week on this when it was first announced. Td Ameritrade shares at this point indicated by about two point three percent. That's a gain of a dollar thirteen to forty nine twenty six again after they saw gains last week as well. Charles Schwab saying that they see this deal being fifteen to twenty percent of creative give to the adjusted earnings per share in the third year in the third year of this deal Schwab right. It's going to be called Schwab. This sounds sounds like a fun thing though analysts have looked at this and said because they both have very strong trading platforms. That you won't see as much of the accretion in terms at the probably both the Charles Schwab and td Ameritrade plan trading trading platforms operating. Because they don't overlap. There's some things the. TD AMERITRADE has like options for insurance little bit stronger. Charles Schwab has a lot of things like People who will talk to you and guide you through these things because of that the probably see some analysts analysts speculating around forty percent in terms of the accretion that they can kind of combine and put these together with those both platforms need to advertise separately swap box. Random House expected to be where you will see some of the. Oh no no no I got a double double down on both platforms. They say anything. But I close with this point break- fees and I don't know I. I have not seen that to me though the two issues. That will be interesting a break-up fee whether you interesting because you think out trust issue not so much on the consumer side but potentially For for all of the investment advisers out there really I mean I think collectively collectively they have like sixty seventy percent. Would you say this is that works serious antics three so they are two things there. There may be a look. Get that and so you you care about that issue. The other issue would be about deposits that that used to stay at. Td Bank so td Ameritrade used to run all their deposits. It's into Toronto. Dominion Inter Dominion. That was actually a huge fee generator for TV bank. And so once. If you take those out I assume Schwab is going to keep those Deposits in their own bank effectively. What that does to? TD LONG-TERM SO. These are some of the questions that I think at least in baking world. They're they're probably so but I don't know I'm GONNA. We'll look great deal. That's good news for holiday.

So he, you know, the allegations came out against him and USA. I was like, well, what do we do? What are we? Anyway, it's pretty agree. GIS and grace. I know that you have pretty strong feelings about this. What are you thinking? Yeah, I wanna give a shout out to my friend, Liz who is a former division one gymnast herself, and she's she's really invested in the sport and this whole story, and she's kind of been keeping me updated over the past few months and she's kind of been my source for this and you know the the reality is like, this is just so upsetting for these women on a number of levels. But one of them is like when you are so distracted by the politics of the people governing your sport, you can't focus on the sport itself. And these women have very, very limited window where they can achieve their best just by virtue of the demands that gymnastics puts on your body. So imagine being like, you know your teenager and you're having to listen to all the politics of this that are happening while simultaneously having to perform at your best. And right now the gymnastics team is preparing for world championships, so they're getting ready for a really huge milestone in. There like kind of four year trajectory leading to the the Olympics when it's distracting is distracting to them very understandably. So. And I think the point was made that I think is really valid, which is why is it that of the US AG board. There are still some members at hearken back from the the Nasser era like they haven't completely cleaned house, which is very strange. And second as far as like rehabilitation goes, which I think really should be the focus here. Why not bring an athlete, like an alley raise men or like a Simone biles to the board itself, somebody who's younger somebody who's been in the sport for a while and somebody who's kind.
