Both sides agree that tracks between Mobile and New Orleans need upgrading but disagree on the cost. The Federal Railroad Administration estimates it will be about 100 million in state and federal dollars. The company that owns the railroad says it will cost billions. It's more than just opposition from free trains keeping Americans from having a European style passenger train network. There's culture. Americans just aren't used to hopping on trains. Our cities are stretched far apart. So planes just make more sense there faster, sometimes even cheaper. But Matthews argues Amtrak and offer routes for communities ignored by major airlines like Memphis in Cincinnati. Those are significant cities, and yet they've lost the light Air service because the airlines just don't want to serve a lot of smaller communities.

Sanders give you get this dental support that he will not hello and they're worried they're no more goals do they want to see Donald Trump to keep it at that the liberal media and basically even think Bernie Sanders could lose in a landslide what they've been doing for the last thirty forty years is hiding in the fact that the Democratic Party is basically dead in a socialist like party where does Carney whose power on the open call the calls you socialists and and they're like stop doing that because if you look at the quote unquote moderates in the democratic stage which are in people to judge you look at the record it is a new place to look at their records enclosure for example one study we found eighty seven percent of time with with twenty senior center then it tapers so a great judge wants to the bar select trocar which get a free college to legal immigrants so it's still a moderate and they all want to give free healthcare to illegals as well they raised their hands right without exception so you have their eyes they really expose himself in you know in on Bridget Jay you know some are starting to do a little bit that little bit more vetting on in which the mainstream I mean he's been the Darling of the mainstream media but it's interesting they're starting to take a couple of steps back from but a judge they're not propping him up as much as they have been in the last couple of weeks I've noticed and you know what what is starting to come out is there but a judge is to add to his involvement with that you know with with the socialist and and communist ideas it you know and even things that Bridget you wrote his as a young man in college and and in high school the eight you know his you know he he has rarely mollified his his statements in his wording in such a way that it yet you know you almost feel like he's a bit of a double agent here yeah you know you're right but again this is something we've been seeing I just recently in an aircraft is over I will honestly decades that you're using a liberal media try to hide the left of the party you had Chris Matthews the staff was fastening because he's he's out and saying you know eight he's kind of like one of maybe the two of the last of the other people on MSNBC that does remember there were modest in Democratic Party and he has a brother Jim Matthews in Pennsylvania I'm sure the Republicans in public sector borrowing insurance tell them look away in coal mining country during a can you can not nominated candidates are talking about all these green new deals are good Olympic also is chocolate well in the thing is that in this is thing is amazing to me is they are echoing what Hillary Clinton said which was a failed message in sixteen and I guess they figure somehow they're going to continue to pound it into the voter politic and convince them that cold is no more that they should walk away from their jobs and just trust the government to take care of them right yeah and it's if it's a failing strategy and I know it it's it's amazing that still though they're still in the media that think that the brain is the way to go there so Die Hard I mean if you look at actually reading and and emigration that out but that's why this is so the infighting not just within the Democratic Party but even within the liberal and liberals in the media yes exactly well especially because you know when when the elites are on hinge to the degree that they are it's a bit refreshing for us everyday people because you're just watching them I mean you know they would let the have led us to believe all these years that they've got all the goods you know they went to all the right colleges and you know they live in the big houses and they go to the specially selected cocktail parties you know for the special people and here you're watching them and and I got to imagine main street America because the country is looking at these knuckleheads and go on oh my god this is this is this is reality TV this this is hysterical you know and on top of that then they go how much how much are we paying some of his people were paying a hundred and eighty thousand dollars a year and boy they're just the leading out in front of gotten everybody how little they really do know about about government yeah it's it it's it's bad really because I don't think out of Bernie Sanders never had a private job in the private sector at four thirty nine forty started do you know what the government job in any he figured out how to take care of his wife what was the is girlfriend at the time any brings our end basically creates a job for him when he was the mayor there and that Craig and they go Hey wait a minute you know you can't do that well you know he did it and you know they whimpered but nobody really took him the final task to say women you gotta get rid over you know so he's he's had a very a leader is very entitled a way of life for many years and as you said surprisingly he hasn't you know we haven't had a job but yet now he owns three houses in he's a millionaire so he's kind of backed off a little bit on maligning people with millions but then you know he'll go after the billionaires which economic billionaires are we talking about in the country but well I talk about the big scare that that that that the media is not covering as his wife I got all these all this money from this college if you skim exam these colleges by the way you know Bray sake Bernie and they'll see in all talking about all we needed to have free college it's a college is so expensive because maybe you have professors Carol and be able to call on on board better hi can you switch since June FEI levels meaning the outlook of the leftist academia sure exactly let's bring

"Choose T Rowe price T Rowe price. Invest with confidence. You're listening to KCRW. This is morning edition, California gets high marks when it comes to certain types of liberal and progressive issues like fighting climate change and supporting renewable energy. But it may surprise you that the Golden State does not score. So well when it comes to women serving in government, sure, four out of five members of the LA county board of supervisors right now are women, but that's an exception women are still far in the minority when it comes to seats in the state legislature and California's congressional delegation, and there are some city councils that have no female members commentator. Joe Matthews says he's come up with a way to change that as he explains and this edition of Zo close, connecting California. It's simple. I didn't come up with it. But in other countries when you want Jared parodying representation, you require gender parodying representation is that legal. Yes. I mean, though, it might require some changes. To our lawn. Perhaps our constitution is a state. But yes, I mean, we have various requirements for representation throughout our government, often are boards and commissions require different constituencies be represented. That's why for just take one example. There's a student Representative on the university of California board of regents if Californians were serious of gender parodying just wanted to talk about it. We could require it. But we haven't chosen to do that yet. I think because we don't know that it's possible do and also because such tools are quickly labeled quotas and for some reason against quotas. Well, how would it work? Let's start with the sort of appointed boards, and panels. And so on that we have around the state. How would you approach that? I think well for volunteer paid ones. I mean, you just require you say, it's gotta be fifty fifty. You know, when you get to people are paid in. This becomes the employees. You might have to change a lot of make explicit that a requirement. Fifty is is is okay, constant with with our nondiscrimination laws. But I mean, you should simply say this body has to be fifty fifty or within a certain range when it comes to elected bodies. You'd have to make a change in the system. One reason we don't have gender parity is because our kind of election system doesn't produce gender parody anywhere in the world where it is used the sort of single member district sorts of elections that we use in California one-seat one person is voted into it. What works is to have elections, which are based on party, which is, you know, most modern democracies us, and you wanna have you know, districts with multiple members where parties offer slates what happens in the European countries and a few others like Tunisia North Africa, we've gotten closer to gender parody is that you require the parties on their slates to have half of the people be women will let me get straight say I'm going to the ballot box. And I'm voting for my local city council. Am I just voting for my party or am? I still voting for a candidate as well. You could do it either way you there's gender perte we stronger if you if you were just voting for slate the for party slate. So you're saying I'm voting for. I don't know the dog lovers party and whoever they're putting in this position. Right. But they would be required or heavily incentivize to produce a list that's diverse and has an has been women both on the way to get. Gender parodies to require gender parody. And we do this. I mean, we're we're doing this right now in corporations that are based in or incorporating California, we've a new law that says that they've gotta have not parody. But at least one board member who's a woman, they're public, and then that goes up to three by twenty twenty one the by the same reasoning you could end up having minorities, whether you're talking racial ethnic age, sexual orientation, physical disability, whatever all saying that they deserve equal representation as well. Right. Couldn't you not couldn't you have having representatives sort of representing special interest rather than the whole their constituency. Yes, I tend tend not to support those kinds, of course, in those areas for certainly in race necessity, which is a very complicated matter, and yes, I realized that gender can be a complicated manner. But the vast overwhelming joy. People identify as male or female and just having that sort of basic rivers in tation is just it also means that sort of different ideas and perspectives are are are represented. And so he's shown that institutions organizations have women in leadership tend to perform better. So for all those reasons this seems like a pretty clear cut case where parody would be good. It would be democratic changing the system to make it possible to mandate. It would improve the election system. This strikes me is one area where we can get the job done.

"So Jim Matthews. He now works. The company that makes JIRA. Atlassian, he's but he fetches become a little more of a side project. It's still developed it's still updated. But it's no longer in the same kind of active Ford motion. But I'd still, you know, it's still out there in this people who love it. And if you've been using it with FTP SF FTP doesn't support all the new cloud stuff in it the way transmit does. But it is still a piece of software. That is totally up-to-date. It's ready for Mojave, and is a big part of his life for a big chunk of his life. Now, I I remember using it it was before. So now I've been using I was using fetch back before the there's like a standard open. Apple I think it's the ODBC editor. Sweet I forget what he stands for. But it's a way that you can set an FTP client like fat or in argue or transmit to say for this type of file double click. It don't download it. Instead open it. That opens a temp file. And then when you save all you have to do to to to make an edit is just save the file command s and then it sends the apple event back to your FTP client, and in your FTP client will update the version on the software. I was doing that before ODBC even existed because I didn't want to use. I was so appalled by using max v. I a terminal window that I was editing might computer science stuff on a Unix system back in the nineties before this even existed where I would just make a local copy save it. And then I had to do one more step. I had to drag it back into the fetch window and said, yes overwrite do you want to override defile? Yes. And so I was editing files on a remote server in BB at it before it even existed, and I was just thinking you say transmit. I remember to transmit came out. It's it's close. I looked it up. It's like ninety one transmit was like ninety seven or ninety s. Oh, I'm started doing the math. It'd be like twenty years. Yes. So there's, but it's really I mean, I I remember when so transit at twenty years old transmit, I'm using the remember the original name was transit, and they ran panic cable and ran into a trademark conflict, and they'd already built up all this goodwill around the name transit as their name, and they had the truck icon already, and and in this, great branding. And they didn't know what to do because there just two kids who are getting started. And then it like, the I forget who I've probably cable, but one of them came up with what if we just call it transmit, and they realized not only with is that verbally very similar. It starts with the same four letters it actually fits their their the branding, even better. It's actually the better on over the tube. Anyway, I still think of I still think of transmit as the upstart the new FTP client. No, it's it's twenty years old and has been in constant development. But it's it's the new one. I mean, graphic converter is my go-to, partly because its batch processing headed today with a student take control book, and I needed to do this thing. Whereas re-sizing it make sure it was retina the resolution in the usual thing. And I was like coming apple script, I can do automated like, no, no, no, no. I just need to do a crack open graphic converter. And I do a batch thing in there, and I just like drag and drop and click, and it's it's just fantastically useful. It was built as a file conversion units. And it supports. I forget what he's up over two hundred formats and like. Like. Time idea. Well at a time when most apps support the graphic files that supports you know, like graphic converter did all the hard work of actually having the native support for these formats built in. And that's why it has you know, this list of formats such well above and beyond. What what the system supports native? And I was having this conversation with my wife about something..

I think that I use that some of it has been around for more than twenty five years, but it's changed hands once or twice still developed, and I'm like, what are the Indy like any developers? It's still a handful of people. Sometimes there were a lot more people in the company, and then shrunk or some are very consistent all along like a twist Lemke towards Solanki is it's mostly him now, and he has contractors who work in the past.
