We never actually posted that error like launched that episode and we should because there's actually a relief fund that with Jamie Otis that brings me back. On. But I think we were testing on a new podcast recording platform. I'm not I'm not sure that it actually worked out. Really Great. Through. It was my. Platform that we were trying to use to see if it was GONNA war. A but yeah, it was it was a good one. I forgotten about. That's so true. But you're a cottage I was at a college last week you're at a cottage this week and that's why we Didn't put it post in episode last week, which I feel so badly about. What we have Some credit we did record and it was actually one of the best recording and then something happened to the file and. Your file completely deleted I'm not sure what happened. And then I had cleared up the trash on my computer to make space and then it deleted somehow. The one file. So That was not that was not a good moment for me last week to deal with. But I know you are up to like two am trying to figure it out we were panicking but you know what? Dumber and giving ourselves a little bit of grace were back on it and you guys can expect episodes every Monday from here on out until at least I would say, Christmas, yeah, i.

So the kids are getting back into a better routine It's a great opportunity for people getting back to work. On a set two new goals. So I think one of the biggest ones for us is that we WANNA be more consistent with our podcast. So and I think just summers a busy time mean not only for us but people that we've been trying to reach out to get on the podcast interview so. Think Fall will be a great a great opportunity to kind of reset from those goals. Yeah. I'm really excited for this episode because I'm finding I'm actually getting many people reaching out to me about motivation Steph relating to self love motivation. Trying to I think we all have this feeling every time a new season arrives I. Think all of us feel the need to almost do that internal reset, and so I think it is it's kind of like a perfect timing and after everything that we can through as a as a collective over the last several months, we are all meeting this so badly so we're. Going to on this episode jump in shoe kind of what Argos goals are for for the new season coming up what we really want to work on. Maybe some things that we've learned we're taking with us and what's your wills because we haven't done that in a while either that's true. That's one thing that we had planned for this episode was not back because. I think it's just one of those. I know it was weird last the last few months have been automated for obvious reasons but. I think. The wilderness. Great to bring back just just because of the whole aspect of being more motivated, being more organized and just giving you guys practical. Ted's tangible tips to take away implement into your own lives to really bring back.

Joe Biden Picks Kamala Harris as His Running Mate
"Much of a surprise this is to everyone. Some people seem surprised Other people like Well Yeah, No. Duh. But Joe Biden announcing yesterday his running mate will be Kamala Harris Thie. Senator from California, and Biden did say early on that he would pick a woman as his running mate, and Harris now makes history as the first ever black woman. To run for vice president on a major party ticket. Her mother is from India. Her father is from Jamaica. So some people are saying she can't call herself African American, but I think she certainly can call herself Black Charlie read and we'll start with you. Are you surprised by the pick? And what do you think about the pick? No, I wasn't surprised because this her name had been floated quite a bit in recent weeks, and she had kind of gone into a little bit of a hibernation for 72 hours or so. Which is it? Something that vice presidential candidates who are really close to it do so they can avoid, you know, last minute questions and all that. And you know, she certainly has a wonderful story as she is the daughter of immigrants, and she Has became a U. S. Senator, for goodness sake, and I don't want to diminish anything about her at all. But I don't think that her role is that important because I think it's all basically whether or not you like Donald Trump in 2020 I think he's the big factor there. I'm not going to say that Joe Biden could've picked Attila the Hun and one but right now, I think it's pretty much Donald Trump or not, and the vice presidential candidates are not that important. They never really are, in my view, and when you think about it Issue. Let's say Is she going to bring people of color to the ticket? Well, I think many people of color, especially African Americans were going to vote for Joe Biden anyway, so I think it's a solid choice in the sense that she As a lot of energy, probably a lot more energy than Joe Biden. Really, and she's She's very good on her feet. She's got a few issues that could dog her. We'll see. But overall salad picked by Joe Biden.

I think she's a mixed bag personally. Obviously, she's a woman that he said he would pick a woman. She is both black and Indian or her mom was from India. Her dad was from Jamaica. That will obviously play well with voters of color, especially African American voters. She's an effective campaigner and debaters we've seen.

Rainbow riots invited artists from several countries to take part in a concert as part of the Stockholm pride two, thousand and seventeen. They also made their presence known within the pride parade from the back of a truck proudly blasting out there incredible musical achievements. I asked Peta which countries were represented. On the rainbow riots flow we had a representatives from Sweden what and we had Uganda Kenya. We had Malawi and we had Jamaica. One of the standout tracks from that for me was a song called freedom. See the crowd. Jumping into. Heard? Freedom. To it in such a way can you tell me up freedom came about when I started making freedom which I co? Bro With? Lesbian rapid called you'll be she's A. Legendary rap group in this in the states called. And when we wrote it, it was kind of like part of my old project housing Wallenberg and kind of thought. It was going to be part of that. But then as I started gravitating towards doing something with Queer activism around the world I, started turning my movement Rainbow Rides into a creative project and I thought well, freedom should be part of that. Really. So that's when I went down to Uganda and started working in Uganda 'cause I thought if I'm going to make this album with queer voices from the world's most dangerous places I've gotta go to the belly of the beast which is Uganda. So I thought okay. Well, I've got to go there ain't going to be nice in preschool ad. And before I went like my passport was running out, so yeah, they add to reissue a possible at the Swedish apple before my flight and they gave me a pink. And I thought. How appropriate with driving along well, exactly Scotland I'm going into Uganda practically waving rainbow flags. This is not going to end well because I was not sure what to expect the anything I'd seen and heard was that nobody nobody in Uganda who was queer was safe and everybody was you know hiding whenever you saw an interview with somebody they will always hiding behind a blood pixellated sort of thing and and not just come to know people going to want to be part of this project. Is it going to be really difficult? What am I going to expect? So therefore came prepared with a song that I'd already written which with freedom I thought at the best maybe I can get some people to dogs in the video at least will have something. But when I arrived, I found a thriving queer community with love creativity and that's how the project started. When I arrived in Uganda realized wow I could really make a whole out I could turn this into something much bigger or they're already artists to establish themselves within the community who were making music. N You lots of quiz singers and performers an artist, and I ended up right in the middle of it. So you know I arrived armed with one song and you know it turned into an album of freedom was starting song, and of course, a features my my old correcting partner you'll be of your majesty but also features a Ugandan singer cold deep lack on bicycle and also on the spoken word intro and the thing about freedom was the I always knew that it was really instant kind of be happy pride song and I just wanted to dot context to put it in. Something else. So it's not just the body, song? To. Put it into context of something really really important life and death and I kinda thought what what better way to to get the message out to make people ons. That was to make them listen.

Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and.

Vincent Brown discusses his new book, ‘Tacky’s Revolt’
"Vincent Brown welcome to meet the rices. Slavery is war. Tell me what that means. Well. In the book. I tend to think of slavery itself as a state of war, and in that I'm following the enslaved themselves who often discuss slavery as a state of warfare amongst themselves, most famously allowed Equiano who we know as one of the most famous formerly enslaved abolitionists of the late eighteenth century British Atlantic. said in his autobiography that when you make people slaves. Them to live with you in a state of war. Now in that he was echoing the philosopher John Locke. Who said that what is slavery? But the state of war continued between what he thought was a lawful conqueror and the concord now John Locke was trying to legitimate slavery. He was an investor in the Royal African company, and he actually helped to write the constitution for the colony of south. Carolina, which became a slave state. State, but equiano was doing something a little bit different than John Locke. He was actually commenting upon the conditions of slavery, the violence that was required to maintain people in slavery and the kind of response that was bound to come by those people who had been subjected so violently so for him, slavery was a state of war, and there were other enslaved people who echoed. Seeing slavery that way helped me frame the slave revolt in Jamaica. In seventeen, sixty, seven, sixty, one, which was the largest in the eighteenth century, British Empire as a war itself right as one of a series of wars, all around the Atlantic world that then ed up in this conflict in seventeen sixty Jamaica I'd like to look at your own life, and where that intersects with war, because you grew up in San Diego, and in fact, it was very early on that. You became aware of conflicts. I did well. I'm an American citizen. I grew up in the United States. I was born in the late sixties at the height of the Vietnam War and I I'm sorry to say that I can't name a five year period when the US military hasn't been abroad somewhere engaged in conflict with somebody over the course of my entire life, which seems to me like a half century of war having. Having grown up in San Diego I grew up in one of the largest terry garrison towns really in the history of the world the US Navy is as a major base in San Diego. The US Marines just north of San Diego have a major base and so coming through high school. A lot of my friends would join the military because it was the big industry in town, right. And of course, you know, my family had been had served in the army. My father served in the army. My Uncle A. Brother had done three combat tours I. Believe one in Korea and two in Vietnam, so the history of the military, the engagement overseas abroad in military campaigns was very much a part of my thinking growing up, and so when I thought about the history of slavery. It just jumped out at me that this history was itself a history that was embroiled embedded in a world of warfare, especially in the eighteenth century win. You have got Great Britain struggling in a century long campaign against its its greatest global enemy France, and all of those European wars then topped onto. The wars of enslavement that sent people out across the Atlantic into the European colonies in America, and what you have is a world of wars within wars, which looked very familiar to me like the campaigns at the US was fighting within the larger ambit- of the Cold War so by the time I grew to adulthood in the late eighty S. I was seeing these these late cold war campaigns in these post colonial states as as part of the larger Cold War, and then you see these proxy wars between the US and the Soviet Union fought out in places like Afghanistan right, and then of course by two thousand one, you see those kind of proxy campaigns between the US and Soviet Union growing into something else what we now call the terror wars, the war on. On Terror in Afghanistan and elsewhere I didn't see those things as continuous. I didn't see the terror war something uniquely different from most proxy wars of the late. Cold War period and my thinking historically has been to ask the question. How is it that one connects these longer histories of warfare together? And I do think that I was inspired to think that partly by having grown up in San Diego in a military town. And what about your, your family's personal history with war and with slavery? Well an african-american! My parents grew up in Virginia, and so they are descended from people who are enslaved probably as far back as the eighteenth century the Chesapeake Bay area. What's now? Virginia and Maryland was one of the largest importers of slaves in North America now I say north. America because the British empire imported the vast majority of its enslaved peoples into the Caribbean but for North America the territories that became the United States, the Chesapeake and South Carolina with a major importers of enslaved African peoples, and my family is descended from. Those people probably brought to North America in the eighteenth century. History was big in your life obviously, but also the arch. Yeah well. When I was in high school I I became very involved in theater and went to college thinking that I was actually going to do a theater degree. But at some point I thought well, you know I could probably do theater without a theater degree, but maybe I should have a backup plan and my second love in college was history, and that ended up being my career.
Oysters, Clambakes and Grilling Run Amok
"Omar welcome to milk street. Thank you, thank you for having me It's great to have you Let's talk about your popup dinners. A called honeysuckle. Could you just describe what you serve and what the pop ups are like? The honeysuckle. It's a concept that uses food as the nucleus to explore various ideas of nuances of blackness in America specifically. And I say America specifically because. Black people in this country have. Quite quite quite the hurdle in our search identity in that many of us can't trace back our heritage. More than two grandparents ago and what a what tends to happen at least in my experience as a bike person, this country is that. People will ask me. Hey, where are you from? What is your nationality? But if I tell them that I'm just a black person, from Philadelphia, and that I'm American. That's kind of where the conversation stops. You know Africans and West Indians have a heritage. They have a flag Michael. tweet talks a lot about having a flag and his book, the cooking teen and having a flag like if you point towards the flag of Jamaica. What do you think of food? Wise? You think of oxtail. You think of rice and peas when you tell someone that you're an African American, most people only ever associate that with pain and then stereotypes. Under the American flag. So honeysuckle to me is. ME. Generating a flag for myself. It's not it's not just pain. Pain is pain as always there, but there were plenty of joys as well. You write poetry and you were to poem. Call folger's which. I of read fifteen times since I. So, could you just read that? Because I I'm not gonNA. Read your poem. You're GonNa have to read your. Sure folders soldiers is is one of my favorite ones I don't write love. poems often, but. Can we have coffee. I mean like really. Can we put down our words and swallow our breasts and hints of Cocoa Cinnamon and clove. Can I stare into your Brown eyes while the do of God washes over your face by our window next to the lips. Disturbs spoons course in our hearts, just black. Don't sugar neither. Only you and silk from Madrid to toews. FRIZZ, baby hairs and a t shirt. That now belongs to us. Can we have it until it's done. Can we fill our empty coffee bean with Greece Double Fryer chicken forever? Fabulous, Really I'm really glad that you like that bomb. Could you just? Explain a little bit about it. Yeah, But I'm not sure if you remember the commercial, the best part of waking up as folger's in your cup. And people who are in a relationship, the person that you love is the best part of Waking Up. When you when you wake up and you, you see that person next to you. and so in this in this poem, the car the coffee the STIMULI IS IS PARTNER You've had a very successful career. You ended up doing these pop ups. Something really believed in now. You're essentially back home. In Philadelphia you say there isn't much in my room, but a mattress leaning Bookshelf Eucalyptus plant that I found in a public flowerpot. It's Blue Gray and brings joy when the days are down so. What happens next you know? I, wrote the and I know soundly somber I think. The the communist comes from everything coming to a screeching halt, it was huge full. Stop at around March fifteenth when when I moved to Philadelphia, but all the. Things that I was doing prior to this pandemic. Was All leading me back to Philadelphia, and so I'm I'm in the place where I'm supposed to be. What's next is what I WANNA do is open. honeysuckle here the art that I do create. Speaks to the African American community and I would like to spread that over several different. Avenues such as a grocer, a coffee space, and still do dinners, but have it be a community center.

Why we need a Congressionally Created National Health Care Reform Commission
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra Cosso. During. This podcast saw discussed with Mr. Randy ostrow, president and CEO Pro-meta and Ohio based nonprofit healthcare system. Efforts to create a congressionally mandated National Health Care Reform Commission. Miss Joe Stra. Welcome to the program. Missed oestrus bio is of course posted on the podcast website. On background. The current public health emergency brings into stark relief, US healthcare's ineffectiveness. I've noted previously with four point, two five percent of the world's population us currently accounts for twenty six percent of worldwide Kobe, nineteen infections and deaths. Black American Cova deaths and hospitalizations are respectively two point five and four times greater than American whites. Concerning our response to date harbor widely cited global health professor. A she's jaw was quoted yesterday stating we may end up being the worst of any country in the world in terms of our response. Despite outspending all other always OECD countries to to one currently at four trillion annually, the effects of the pandemic is having should not altogether unexpected. In, the first major attempt to rank performance in two thousand, the World Health, organization listed US healthcare thirty seven, the world immediately after the Czech Republic and Jamaica. More recently twenty seventeen Commonwealth Fund ranked US healthcare's performance last among eleven, comparatively wealthy countries. With a current projected toll over two hundred thousand by October one. The question begged is what will federal policymakers learn from this experience more specifically. What will they do to reform? How healthcare is defined delivered and financed. With me again to discuss efforts to create a congressionally mandated national health care reform. Commission is chromatic. CEO Randy Oestra. For purposes of full disclosure I've been working with Primerica in advocating before the Congress on this issue. So to begin Randall, let me ask you if you could provide a brief overview of pro-meta. Sure. Was a traditional integrated delivery system regional and an integrated system. We had hospitals. and. Doctors had an insurance company and then so we were several billion dollars in revenue primarily. Ohio sawfish Michigan and then about ten years ago. through. A variety of of interactions became very focused on of the hunger in the health issues, good as security that really less in spending a decade Fox's on the social determinants of health and a lot of experience. A lot of stories could tell as we talked to organizations around the country that have that were forever covering. We were probably the first houses than they ever talk to them. They said you know. What are you doing here? And then the next special as we're in the of bed and really it's been quite a journey of. Over two years ago while we purchase largest for profit, senior companies in the United States cold hr matter. And so today we would call ourselves the health and wellbeing company We're around. You know just in broad terms of seven billion dollars innovation we, we work in twenty eight states, and really the whole idea is about that. How do you integrate? Things, we do clinically with the things that immediately drafts from a social economic standpoint. You ready records some of that code, and then hot that translate into healthy aging, and all the things that go with it, some of the inequities in healthcare from the inequities treatments, and so we set back from an looking for model in healthcare in realize that we're ought to relieve wrong, pat. We Really Kinda Organization. Try to embark. Do APP, and that's his house voting folks. Okay thank you. Let's go specific to of a national commission, so let me begin with the substantive question, and that is in your experience. What would you say are the three or so overriding structural problems or challenges? Confronting Health Care Delivery and financing today. Yeah I think it's actually a a US question while. You know the American healthcare mile was a mess. I. Think you know that's real clear and I think when you look at the statistics have to go too far whether it's you know the back that we're headed toward ninety percent of the gross domestic. Product by twenty twenty five the statistic. Thank you get already cited from the OECD. Ranked in the world

Know there's so many ways I could introduce you. Activists you know co founder of Harbourside. You're involved with the last prisoner project now. Which I know you've been bringing lot of tension to but welcome Andrew Dangelo. Thanks so much for being willing to come on the podcast today. Thank you Jason. It's great to be with your community today. Yeah totally. I'm really stoked to see where our conversation goes. I've been following a lot of your press over the past several months. Some of the interviews you've been doing and keeping up with some your work and there's a there are a lot of milestones to go through but then I know there's a lot you've been talking about lately that I don't WanNa make you regurgitate the same stuff that you've been staying over again someone to try to go in some unique directions here but there's all sorts of stuff for us to Go into right now. One of the kind of segue into a lot of things one of the first things I wanted to ask you about. Is you recently took a trip to Barcelona didn't you? I did I was there for. Icbc Barcelona and span of this. Yes yeah and you. You didn't make it out to the hashish and hemp museum. That's out there I did. I had a great time at the museum. That's Ben drunker zones and operates that museum. He also has one in Holland. Amsterdam and Ben's been old friend of the family for decades and so it was great vehicle able to see his newest outposts there in Barcelona. It's a beautiful building. He's done all this wonderful stained glass work and yeah and if you if you haven't been Barcelona the architecture Barcelona's just every single building every single doorway window archway. is just extraordinarily well-crafted. Beautiful beautiful work and the the hemp and Marijuana Museum. There is no exception and they've ban in his team just done a stellar job with that museum. I encourage everyone to make a pilgrimage to check it out. Yeah I saw some of the photos posted on social media and I was fascinated. How beautiful some of you know the way. Everything was presented the design architecture and everything and I wasn't even really familiar with that museum. Can you describe a little bit about what that museum is like? And kind of how things are presented. And what your experience. There was sure. The museum has multiple levels. So it's two or three stories. There's elevators and stairs that you navigate through it and it's part a history lesson of the plant and and specifically Ham You know the two. The two tracks museum really talks. Most about is is as cannabis as medicine and as an intoxicant and ham has a industrial raw material so so that those are the two focuses. I would say of the museum. And Ben's just got an incredible collection of ancient hemp materials and modern hemp wears also that are represented by some of the leading can't cannabis hemp companies of today. Of course UH sense. He seeds is right next door. Okay Marijuana Museum both in Barcelona Amsterdam and and you can purchase CBD products there and genetics and a whole bunch of really cool will art and culture and Swag from both the museum and since he seats and I was just thrilled to be in Barcelona and an experience that you know we we in the United States. We don't we have cannabis with sort of the first cannabis museum or installation in Las Vegas. There we'd maps just did a big installation in Los Angeles. That was a museum. But we don't have permanent cannabis ham. You know that I'm aware of that's that's as large in a serious As bans I'm sure we have lots of small Wonsan and probably millions of small ones in people's homes. I certainly is yeah I got. I got some in mind mile in my altar of course but you know so when it. It's not easy to have a museum. You know museums don't make money. They lose money and they are about building culture and about keeping something alive for future generations to learn about an and that's hard work to do in our movement in our industry is still in the embryonic stages and I look forward to the day and I hope Stephen I get to be a part of it Where there are something like that. The Hemp Museum here in the United States a- every city should have won. Every every community has cannabis story that goes back hundreds of years and and we can all tell our own version of what's happened over the last hundred years so it's part of the cultural work that I think we're moving into sort of a cultural renaissance canvas. We've had you know we had to legalize and that was just brutal. One hundred year war you know and now we have all these little battles to get legalisation right which we have not done and and of course you know. We have a lot of work to do to get legalisation rights. So that's going to be ten thousand battles that we're GONNA have to fight for that. The cultural work is really something that I think our community is going to have a lot more fun within the political work and I I really. Creativity and culture is been one of the strengths of the cannabis movement community for forever. Going back to the jazz age you know going back to the brothels of New Orleans going back to Jamaica going back to India Longtime in this plant has inspired the creativity of men and women all over the world and so we get to come out of the shadows culturally now and into the light and Where are colors loud and proud and and talk about the plant in ways like a museum? There's millions of ways to express cannabis culture but a museum certainly one of them and you know the there's a big wide open cultural world out there that I hope your listeners will will embrace. There's also I know you know. Science on this podcast. There's a big sign this world of cannabis scientists just like just like culture. It's in the embryonic stages in Gosh. I can't I can't I can't think of something more exciting right now. Then to be working with canvas science or cannabis culture.

"It there too in late March of seventeen thirty. Nine Governor Governor. Edward for Lonnie commissioned Colonel John Guthrie to negotiate a peace treaty to end the Maroon War Guthrie started with captains cut joe and ACAPA Pong of the leeward. Maroons trelawny himself was eager enough to get this over with that. Instead of just staying in towns await for a treaty to be brought the him he hiked out to vantage point near the negotiation so he could be on hand to sign the treaty as soon as it was finalized. Joe's signed of the fifteen point treaty on March first of Seventeen thirty nine the treaty put an end to hostilities between the British and the LEEWARD. Maroons and that granted them freedom in liberty. Along with fifteen hundred acres of land in northwest Jamaica stretching out from trelawny town the main leeward settlement through what's known as cockpit country the LEEWARD. MAROONS had the right to hunt on the island. As long as it was not within three miles of white settlement they also had the right to plant crops and raise livestock and sell L.. What they grew and raised at the market as long as they had a license to do it? The treaty also offered the Leeward maroons some legal protections and assigned them some obligations. The Marines had the right to petition officers and magistrates for Justice in the event that a white person did them harm the leeward. Maroons could also so handled justice for crimes that their own people committed. As long as there's crimes were not severe enough to warrant the death penalty in which case that was supposed to be handed over to the British court. They had to have an annual meeting with Jamaica's commander in chief. He was British as to white people whose roles were not really defined the treaty where to live with the maroons. Enter Lonnie town. I'm imagining that. These were almost like ambassadors. who were living they did? It didn't really specify what they were supposed to be doing. In this treaty it was also up to the LEEWARD. Maroons to maintain roads between their settlements and the British towns. Some of the treaty's terms instantly earned the leeward. Maroons a lot of enemies. They had to quote take kill suppress or destroy rebels on the island which usually meant other maroons. But more controversial he quote if any negroes shall hereafter run away from their master or owners and fall into captain cudgels hands they shall immediately be sent back to the Chief Magistrate of the next parish where they are taken and those that bring them are to to be satisfied for their trouble as legislature shall appoint in other words following the signing of this treaty if people escaped enslavement and made their way to cut joe in the LEEWARD maroons. MAROONS would send them back. This made Jamaica enslaved population incredibly angry and this was the case for some of his own people to one faction attempted a last minute coup to keep the treaty from going into effect but when Cudgel heard about it here arrested four of the ringleaders and turned them over to the governor especially considering how much Maroon survival. Until this point had evolved loved had involved raiding plantations and liberating people who were enslaved. Their people saw this as a huge betrayal quite understandably and like that continues still today. The governor recognizing that the deep anger stemming from these provisions had the potential to make the situation and on the plantations worse instead of better sent troops to one of the plantations descent had been the loudest severely punished the people in slave there an executed cupid many of them for the most part the windward. MAROONS did not even know that. These negotiations had happened once those treaties were signed but once they learned learned about it they realize that between the British and the Leeward maroons they were vastly outnumbered so under duress they signed their own very similar treaty. Eh on December twenty third the captain from the windward. Maroons who signed this was a man named clough. Things are relatively peaceful between the British. And the MAROONS for more than fifty years. But the British population on Jamaica as before continued to grow including taking over the land. That was supposed to be allotted to the MAROONS Skirmishes started flare up again and the Maroon stopped returning escapees from the plantations and they started rating. Those plantations again then two. MAROONS were convicted of stealing pigs. And they were publicly flogged. This punishment was is carried out by the foreman of the prison in Montego Bay. who was black and it was done in front of some people who had escaped from enslavement? Who the marines had returned and watching from the prison? These returned escapees taunted and jeered the two minutes they were being punished. The maroons anger anger over. This incident was twofold. They felt number one under the terms of the previous treaty. They should have been able to handle doling out their own punishments the way Hey. The punishment had been carried out was also particularly humiliating. This time the conflict was much shorter lasted only about got a year. Governor Alexander Lindsay ordered the Maroons to stand down by August twelfth. Seventeen ninety five but nearly all of them refused. He extended ended the deadline to December twenty first and then to January first of the following year. Finally it took the recruitment of additional forces and a shipment of hunting dogs is brought in from Cuba to finally get maroons to surrender. That previous conflict had been a lot lot lot longer but this one was a a lot more efficient And that surrender finally happened in March of seventeen ninety six. Although many of them ruins didn't actually lay down their arms until a little later even when the fighting was over Governor Lindsay considered the situation way too precarious to allow the Marines to return home. He was particularly worried about the ones from trelawny town. which was the largest Marines settlement in Jamaica so oh he boarded five hundred?

"More than eight so the end of last year. Actually it was. New Year's Eve was actually closed but there was a government of Jamaica press conference. I'm not sure if you heard what the head of the enterprise esteem who is charged with leading the divestment of the robots on dome but he came onto the podium to make an announcement and he announced that the government of Jamaica. Actually you know intense to wind down operations at Robuchon. So they're going to they're essentially going to be moving. The don't so are they. I mean he spoke to things like you know Slowly transitioning away from that site so there was an announcement last year to see. That too tacos will no longer be going to report on. They're going to be going somewhere else. But I think the intention now is to move although materials away from that site so you just find that over time less and less garbage is going to be going to. What's on and I think? The hope is that they'll eventually be able to transition. To rylands is the term he used to uh-huh hold that impacts air quality issues is that of course is me just source of air pollution in that area and it really impacts the public health and environmental communities around. You are really happy to hear that. This is the fact that this action is going to be finally take after decades that the jet has been advocating for this both under this project. And before. You don't really really great to hear that this much-needed action is is GonNa be taken so we were hoping that they're going to fast track that they they gave End of one thousand nine hundred ninety deadline we we would love to see it happen even more because of course an announcement those fixed the air quality issues. That's our experience area right. The citizens are still being impacted by poor air quality associated. Let's see did with the dumper though we want to see that hop on but it's really really good news especially to start off two thousand nineteen so we're happy AH.

"So after a two year campaign and grow from the cover with foundation. What were the outcomes so where we had this greater publication that look at Aaron water quality issues? More broadly that was I really fantastic outcome. You know where really propagation that we did you know I I am I can join Jamaica at least has done a review of that kind. We brought stakeholders together so we brought government officials together with community Z.. Members to air all these issues of the community members were you brought directly to government and industry stakeholders these are. These are people who are immediately being affected by these Erin water quality problems and they're able to air their grievances directly and get contact information for the industry contact attacked information for the government so that they can follow up on on these issues so that was very good. Although we can't say that the public education campaign that we did for for the clean air and water project was directly responsible for some of the announcements. That happened last year. We do think that it went a very long way to kind of Oh placed Added pressure on the government of Jamaica to do something about the air quality issues especially as it relates the rebuttal insisted on we feel very good about the campaign and the the release of that review and the kind of advocacy. That came with that from you. Know both the citizens being able to give testimonials meals has to hold. This is impacting them. This affecting their health and their environment.

"With had two fires we've had burning of this kind of noxious gas? How quickly will you advocacy out? Quickly did the Jamaican government swing into action to address the issues that immediate reaction forces the the final department them going on extinquish something or robots is a longstanding issue. Right it's been a problem for decades. There's no will eat fix the problem. What because we were able to hang Buddhist advocacy because we're able to show these testimony get gained more public awareness around the issue? We also had the Pacific suits will review the report that came out of the National Environmental Finding Agency following the file. The we had the technical expertise. We have a volunteer. Who assisted with the project of former University of West indies lecturer environmental chemistry at A? Hi Gentleman Conduct Anthony. Greenaway assistant us in in looking at the diesel report came onto the via so we were able to review. Were able to send it into NAPA. Were able to say the these are the issues you were able to get the media talking. There were quite a few interview was not only surrounding the file and impacts on that while also Surrounding this report being released on jets review of the report and our interpretation off you know the findings and our concerns not only votes the impact the fire but just in whole estate was monitoring airports in the era. So shut down. That dump was a headline for the article. Revealing the findings from Netflix. Air Quality Report stated that residents in the surrounding areas are being exposed by harmful pollutants. Let's have a chat with Suzanne standing addict. Who is chief executive officer? You make an environment trust good morning so that will be talking about. This riverton dumped far far. Whenever I can remember your suggested? It shouldn't be there. It should be moved moving to where would sorry. We've been talking about this for years. There seems to be no movement in that direction. If it's not moved what's the next move and if you're not gonNA move it when we're looking at the report that was released by the last week and the results of the reports. Were not really very surprising. There was a huge fire at the Dome Books and it negatively impacted air quality but what was concerning. was that in the report that we saw where there are already wanted to issues in the aerial air. That already suffering from poor air following an incident ninety-six actually making one bad situation much worth of so. Let's talk about this study. Marked increases in toxic gases forty six pollutants were detected from the analysis conducted. was that surprising to you. A report that said had some some of those component two and a half times what it should be the benzene. It was frosty times. The annual levels have been set after and this this is really concerning because long exposure to these kind of things can cause cancer. So you say they've been talking about this for years. Suzanne local will uh-huh actually only been needed for a long time timing so some of Jamaica's Challenges with management has never really been a priority in the country. Heavy money jog garbage all ties into where we send our garbage and even sixty percents of the cases did that is the Riverton if it's not moved. Is there anything that the residents of the surrounding residents can do. If it's not move knock apnea fire. We were going to be a house in study you know looking at some some of the impacts on the people have been the area had been hum dot fire and just on the survives on that nature on the poor air quality can era. Is this something that you could do. Independently Suzanne then or. Is it something that you'd have to wait on government to do well the health impact. It's quite an extensive expensive type of that. would be needed colluded investigates when we can try and funding to do something like that. But you know we would need the buy in from the government agents participate facilitate. Yeah right well. I hope we don't have to talk about this anytime soon again. But thank you for weighing in this morning talking about I knew I know chief. Executive Officer of the Jamaica Environment Trust Suzanne Stanley Suzanne. How long did the campaign laughed boo? And how long was the grown before as well. It's it was a two year grant him.

So we are a non-government environmental organization and we were started in one thousand nine hundred one by my predecessor. Holly and I took oversee is January this year. I'm relatively new so so leadership in the organization we have people on staff I'd say about because sometimes we because we have our relationships with some former staff members. I'm still kind of operates at a traffic those from time to time. So a lot of people don't realize how small jets is featured in a lot of the time we have his would relationship with Jimmy often unto us and ask us for our our opinion or position on embarrass environmental math up. And he said it's a non governmental organization. Is there a Jamaican governmental. The department. That you liaise with work with or is this something that you compete contracted out of government services. No actually. There is a state agency with responsibility for the army the National Environment and Planning Agency. So why is the state agency. But they have annual function so they are kind of amalgamation commission off of what was once called the Natural Resources Conservation Authority and the tone at Contra. Planning Authority kind of joined together to create One agencies which in itself causes issues beating couple to an agency that not only responsible for our environmental protection on conservation.

"Know. I'll try to keep myself tape today. Did but when they reflect with no one to our our my I you know. I'm not sure how did call this time. They did. Act that is non incoming fire for us and by personally. Don't believe that that's that's my personal view is a good ride and if you have a good heart they told you that you have to be a Christian to go to heaven I I don't the thing that okay. So he definitely has had some kind of teaching saying the Lord or the Lord is good Lord and he knows is about the coming judgment. You know he's talking about the Lord coming with fire and talking about Noah's Ark and he is communicating something that a lot of people believe not just in Jamaica but all over America they talk about judgment but if God is good good. He's not going to judge anyone. If God is good he's going to be nice he's going to be sweet. No one's GONNA get hurt. And that is a common belief and I kind of call that the lopsided view of God God has a bunch of different attributes. Love is one of them. But if you focus only on that one an attribute of God you're going to have a lopsided view. God you're going to have a God that is all one attribute and none of the rest. It's it's important to see God as he presents himself so yes God is love but he's also righteous he's also a judge he's also the god of vengeance upon upon his enemies and so God has many different things and so anytime you take one of his attributes and focus only on that you're going to have a a wrong view of God and so some people do it in the opposite way the only focus on God's wrath and so they have a God who they only think is mean and nasty the and these people usually become very critical because they see God is critical. They see God as someone who's just mean and so it's important to study the entire Bible and learn all the attributes of God and not place one over the other not placed the one you like the best in the forefront of all the other attributes tributes of God and so a lot of people do that and it seems right away that that's what this man is doing and so Let's see what happens. There is some kind of judgment that's going to happen and you have to have a good heart is to said pure heart cleaner. Don't lie by then commander if that's the case let's have a clean heart live good to watch. People don't grudge somebody for their own own. That's not yours. You know you work hard. You try to make it in the in some good formal for his every no-man's perfect and it's true knew that when he at manifest as some people say the Lord has manifest themselves into Mary's womb become the flesh on the bone and you walk art and he said No. That's why maybe at said life. I give them far. They don't know what the I've done so he says it's not easy being a human. He knew we weren't perfect. Nobody's perfect so let me let me ask you this my friend so you said that the way that you pass the judgment is by being being being good order being righteous being pure how are you how are you doing with that. Is your heart clean so often people will bring up the fact that you need to be good in order to get to heaven. They'll mention the ten commandments. Once in awhile and that's great for me because my goal in part of the conversation is to get a person to look at the Ten Commandments. It's so when someone brings it up on their own. It's a very easy segway to say Okay Ten Commandments. Let's look at him. How are you doing with that? Is Your heart clean. There's a way you can you can know you mentioned the Ten Commandments K.. By looking at the Ten Commandments. We can see where we're at before a holy God so let me ask you this. Would you consider yourself to be a good person. I think so I think so too 'cause allied on my heart and I because I'm a smoker a drinker. That's the things under that people do even though a lot of Christians tell you that they're separating nufemme dot. Org lied. I mean come on you drive a car window. There was no history back. Today's wasn't driving. Your car. Delight took it took a ride from a donkey to to to stable. That's true no we are getting more comfortably comfortably in Newark. I don't know what the car has to do with his sin but He is saying people say you shouldn't smoke pot. And he's got to join in his hand and he's basically saying it's not really that bad now. Another thing he said was as far as smoking and drinking goes. That's just things on the earth that people do not sin. That's just stuff that people do. Well all sin is stuff people do. They're either doing wing something by breaking God's law or they're thinking something and breaking God's law that way but also Senate stuff that people do mine kind is making so how much little stuff far US human being which they got the knowledge an inspiration from God's worse but they're making it so much you know a checked into human being that it's not easy for you to see those stuff won't do them. You know something that up but you got a lot of people that don't smoke orange and even though you got a lot of Christian they were allowed to save your life is not Senate but yet still you would allow to save your life so no one is that that it does leaves back to that point right here so. I think that there are a lot of Christians that say things that don't make sense but we don't have to worry about what all the Christians say we need to worry about what the Lord says right and by looking at the Ten Commandments. We can kind of see for ourselves. What we're doing slum? Let me ask you this. How many lies do you think you've told? In your whole life listen mcgarity ricotta cheese. Fuel is okay now just for the record. I have no idea what he just said but I did hear the word lies so I'm just going to keep listening and see where this goes lies. Let me tell is not the simple allies overdose forget to excite it rise up to see a midlife are getting me with problems that I would think that would take myself in any problem onto our so. Have you ever ever told lies that you weren't telling to save your life. You just told them off problem or be or because you wanted to get your way with some. I've been I. I've been incarcerated incarcerated before an ad ally to make up a story does not to put other people in problem dot was not snitching. Sure so what do you call someone who tells live who does does lies a liar. You're liar have you ever stole something even even something small a pencil when I was a kid Lighter you know but I I'm not GonNa see me break break into somebody's house and go in there but stealing pens from me weak we can we can. We can still without breaking into someone's house right. So what do you call someone who steals things. Your teeth ever use God's name in vain use God's name as a cuss word no cost or to express discuss or anger like you use when you're in trouble US Gods God's name in a in a bad way a lot of people do but not I personally not I add got angry at one point when I never did that. I just got ignorant I. I was talking to Muslims asking. God Why does that happen to me in blind and you know and undenied relaxed Beg For forgiveness which I think he did you know but you have news. God's name in vain that's called blasphemy right. It's taken the name of the Creator and dragging it through the dirt. Define that for me more. Give me an example. So using God's name in vain would be to use God's name like inappropriate way. Maybe say Jesus Christ but you say it in in a way where you're angry. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's that that not only me. I think that a lot of people orna before about yeah. That's true. Yeah okay so that's called blasphemy. So he's starting to squirm a little bit. He started not enjoy the so much. So I'm going to thank him. I'm GONNA thanks income for bearing with me and being patient you know and I understand that it is a easy or fun thing to be confronted with your sin. So I'm going to be as gracious as I can through the whole process that thanks for doing this interview. So have you ever Looked upon a woman with lust. Yeah I think that That's something that even if a married man he married for twenty years you can get an email looks if you think it's even wrong but you're not doing the action you know that's natural for you to see something and think about but not doing it so if you think about it wrong then we are on well. Jesus Christ himself he actually said you know you're not supposed supposed to commit adultery. But I say to you if you look at a woman with less you're committing adultery in your heart see. That's God's standard are our standards are very low but but God standards are very high k.. So if we've looked at a woman with less as far as God's concern we've committed adultery in our heart and then last question. Have you ever hated someone. We've been really angry at someone I've been angry at someone but hatred is not something I keep in my heart. I I personally think that you gotta you leave that part to God. You Know I. I'm not saying our dislike you but not to a point where I hate you eight you you know because you got some certain people you gonNA agree with or whatever but I don't really Aliki Ages in my I'll to let go you know that's good but I won't forget already happened do not. This is true so but you have been angry with someone. Jesus said you know you're not supposed to commit murder but I say to you if you've been angry with your brother you've committed murder already in your heart again. God standards are a lot higher than us. He looks at the heart. He knows. Those are our thoughts. You got murdered your heart murdering your heart. Yeah absolutely so then. You've got another thing about it so much. You know so much Ado n Norman is perfect. That's true fate we all. I think that this is something that people live and feed off the Lard. The fate that we have in him. 'cause I got faith not not because I'm not aggressively. So he's got faith and he's basically saying well as long as you have faith that's what matters and that's a common thought people. We'll say things like well as long as you believe in something and that something works for you. Then that's what matters or maybe there's a thought as long as I believe in in God in some form than God's going to be okay with me because I believe in him now what they're not realizing that if they believe in God auden some form and it's not the god of the scriptures then they're believing in an idol and idolatry is a sin so a lot of people just kind of thing. Yeah well as long as you got faith. That's what matters when in actuality you can have your faith in the wrong thing do you. Do you think that it's important. To have your faith in the right thing or the white right. One for instance. If I had my faith in a police officer that he was GonNa to help me but that police officer turned out to be corrupt mankind if I had my faith in in anything if I had my faith in this chair right here but the chair was old and broke when I sat on it my faith might might be real but it might be placed in the wrong thing. So it's it's important for us to make sure our faith is is breath so let me ask you this my friend. You've been very honest with me and I and I thank you. You've you've committed many sins just like me right. Nobody's perfect like you said said if you're creator was to judge you today if you were. How old are you joining? Three twenty three. If you happen to get hit by a car or or or somehow die beef today before I almost I almost dimes out to be very grateful absolutely but if you were to find yourself dying today and you stood before your Creator he was to judge you and he saw you as a liar and a thief and a blasphemer a murderer heart and adulterer heart do. Do you think he would see you as someone who is innocent or someone who is guilty of breaking his law. I would think you would sell me as somebody loss as what I think in my head because Dan I think I'm lost from the truth as a lot lot of people there. I always ask God for forgiveness that if today if he comes hours in around the nomination I wasn't I was lost and confused all cutting tradition You know confusion. That's going on with the Bible and in the world and not only say because you got so many hundred different uneven nation worshiping the Lord so I think I know I'm GonNa do not thing I know so okay now. This is awesome awesome. This guy just admitted that he thinks he's lost and so even though at the beginning of the conversation he saying well. Maybe it's reincarnation nation maybe God's going to judge me but he's not really going to judge me harshly now the real issue with him coming out he saying I'm lost now in a minute. We're GONNA see that. He's kind of using his loss nervous as an excuse possibly to be lost to basically say I'm lost and because I'm lost God's GonNa be okay with me because he knows I don't know everything kind of thing and I and I'm going to deal with that but but I just love the fact that this guy just admitted that he's lost. You know what my friend. That's actually a very good place to be because you're humble about it you admit that you don't know everything you admit that that you could be wrong and I think it's very important for us to understand that God is bigger than us. He knows more than us. And I really appreciate the fact that you would admit that that you call yourself lost and I think that's a great description of what you've just said so so if God was to judge you based on his law he would find you guilty right he would find you guilty of being a liar and a murderer and a thief and all these things well. I'm yeah I'M GONNA I'm GonNA disagree with you. Know I think all right if those are the truthful ways to go in heaven and yes well. Here's the thing that is. That's God's law so according to his law God will judge all sin now. I'm not now. This isn't the end of the story K.. But but if this was the only thing that got it ever done with this if got it only given his law you haven't kept the law. I haven't kept a law and because of that. No Man no woman can get to heaven simply by keeping God's law because all of us have sinned all of us fall short the glory of God in you know no absolutely barnes so yeah. This guy's definitely been to church at some point. The fact that he said he was born in sin. I mean that's Romans five nineteen for as through the one man's disobedience meaning atom the many were made sinners the Bible says we were made sinners. And it all goes back back to Adam's disobedience so this guy actually knows more than most people I talked to you in order for you to live the right way. I think you gotTa be light job due to the cause in the Bible about this job that got us The Creator took away. His cattles is why he was being sued right. Everybody was that blaspheme against a lot and was like no and then got repaid him in a lot of ways that you could never imagine so I think that that's one of these humbled you know. Absolutely it's good for us to be humble. Let me let me ask you this. Does it concern you at all that if you were to die today and stand before God any was to judge did you. You would be guilty of committing all these sins and that and that you would end up in Hell if God was to judge based on that does that concern you at all it it. It does to be honest because nobody wants to go to add but then in is of being a human being autozone fully that if I personally think that God has a hard of you know something good and pure and you can look into you in your life and seeing that you did wanted to try. But you'll be lost and mankind. Mankind unkind as ruling so much. By God's were bringing

"When he did that he he he defeated death but he also paid the price for your sin? See Our problem. Is that when we were judged by. God we're not GonNa have enough righteousness to enter into the presence of a holy God but when we put our faith in Jesus Christ in in effect we're putting our faith in his righteousness and not in our own basically admitting God the father I don't have enough righteousness but I'm GONNA put my faith in Jesus Christ and what he did for me on the Cross. And so that's why God commands Allman Allman everywhere to repent and. That's the way that a person gets right with God by trying to be good or not by trying to make up for all the bad things you did but right by accepting what Jesus Christ did on the Cross as a free gift from God turned from your sin. Put Your faith in Jesus Christ and you'll be saved saved from the punishment you deserve. You do that by faith and once you're born again God changes your heart. He begins to give to to change your desires. And you go from someone who's been following after the world following after yourself and you begin to be a Christian someone who is a Christ follower someone who follows after Christ what do you what do you think about that. What do you think about that so explaining things to people if I've talked for a while I want to know their thoughts?

"And that's really just about you know, stretching the meat making it flavorful. And and also tend to rising. Yeah.
