"An ICU bed. No matter who you are, and how could your insurance is? There's no bets, 16 says. They're the first line of defense and the system is strained. They face situations were 90% of the hospitals were on diversion status, meaning they were telling ambulances not to come to them. He says ambulances there waiting hours, sometimes days to get a patient into the hospital and with oxygen and short supply aunties and paramedics are now under orders not to use it unless the patient's oxygen saturation level falls below 90%. Well, we've actually had unprecedented chelation. We've had hospitals actually turning ambulances away, but they refused to accept them. John Van Aalst isn't empty. He's been doing this 27 years and he says. He's never seen anything like this. It's tough for us is transporting these patients to these hospitals and having toe you know, sit there and hold walls for hours at a time. Baby sitting the patients for hours they sit in the ambulance or wait in the hallway with a sick patient on a gurney. Unable to respond to other 911 calls on 1 24 hour shift. They are constantly transporting sick people were running easily. 22 23 hours. Out of those 24 hour with very little downtime. So it's It's very stressful and trying to find time to just grab some some sort of food to stay sharp and could be out there to respond. This isn't even the peak.

Should Social Media Companies Honor the First Amendment?
"Hi everybody I'm John Van and moderator intelligence squared US debates and in this episode. We're going to be revisiting a debate on a topic. That's been in your headlines quite a bit recently. We're going to be looking at how social media platforms should be deciding what content you can or cannot post online. We're seeing twitter and facebook taking decidedly different approaches to this question. Twitter recently flagged a tweet from President trump where he said that mail-in ballots would be enabling voter fraud. The president responded to being flagged with a brand new executive order that would strip social media companies of their protections from liability for anything that users post. FACEBOOK is a different story. FACEBOOK has maintained that with the exception of some specific dangers. Free speech must be respected Mark Zuckerberg said we should enable as much expression as possible that said facebook has taken down some of trump's campaign ads that featured a Nazi symbol and has allowed users to opt out of political ads. Well with all of this going on, what does it mean for the future of your news feed and Where should social media companies draw the line on possibly false or offensive or hateful user content? Two thousand, nineteen, we brought four very strong debaters to the stage to argue those questions. We had a debate, so let's hear it. Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, so says the US Constitution, but what about facebook or twitter or any social media platform, those companies face no constraints on setting limits on what people can say platforms. It is after all their ballgame. They own the space, but should they be limiting speech when it is so offensive, sometimes and morally threatening that a crosses the line into what we call. Hey, speech same for information that is false pretending to be true. What some call fake news would doing so turn these companies into censorship? Where tree expression is put at serious risk, or perhaps should these same companies take a page from the First Amendment and encourage speech to run as far as it wants to? Well, we all this has the makings of a debate, so let's have it. Yes, or no to this statement. Constitutional free speech principles can save social media companies from themselves. John Donvan is Stan between two teams of two experts in this. This topic who will argue for and against this resolution as always our debate will go in three rounds, and then our audience here at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia will choose the winner, and if all goes well, civil discourse will also win our resolution one more time. Constitutional free speech principles can save social media companies from themselves. Let's meet the team arguing for the resolution, please I welcome David French. David welcome to intelligence squared. You are a senior writer for the National Review Your Attorney. Sometimes you say you're recovering attorney, your free speech advocate. You're a veteran of operation. Iraqi Freedom you have a New York Times bestselling book out and another one called the great American divorce coming out this year after year long career in law and your love the first. Amendment, the fact that we are at the National Constitution Center a shrine to the Constitution does being here. Give you chills. Debate gives me chills because it reminds me of two dates. Seventeen, eighty-nine, nine, the date, the constitution was ratified in seventeen, ninety eight, the date that the founding generation passed the alien and sedition acts indicating that debates about free speech have been alive as long as our Constitution has been a lie and are still with us as we're going to be debating tonight listening again David French. and. You have a partner arguing this with you. Please welcome losing in Korean mcsherry. Thanks so much for joining us I Q to You are the legal director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Is a nonprofit that defends civil liberties in the Digital World Karen. You have said that some of your favorite cases involved defending political expression. Do you have a particular? Can share. It's hard to choose so I'll just tell you about a recent case. That was particularly fun. And that involves a situation where a group of activists took to the streets of Washington DC and Philadelphia and New York, handing out spoof copies of the Washington Post in which the headline announced that trump had last resigned. It was lots of fun. They got lots of attention to Washington. Post also paid attention and was not happy, so they received illegal threat. They called us. We intervened, and we explained to the Washington Post what they should already know. Which is that? That spoof was protected by the First Amendment. Wash depot should know that they realized it. They backed down. We called it a win.

ETFs let's talk a little bit about the company that you joined in ninety two and I want to focus on the era in the nineteen seventies where your dad had an extremely pressing in coal into gold in a very inflationary era but more than just being a pundit who said gold going up he made a joint bid on that tell us about it so my father started the Fuhrman fifty five he actually started it later in life and so in the in the sixties he had just got married he was just over fifty years old and he was getting a degree at night at NYU in economics mmhm and one of his professors was an Austrian economist called Ludwig von Mises hands if you know anything I mean he's famous right but Austrians were never really accepted into academia in the United States they're little actually was not a full professor he was just sort of an adjunct but anyway my father they they are sort of hard core monetarists and they really got this on money supply hard money you know and it was basically lock guns and body were happening in the nineteen sixties my supply was exploding and eventually that was going to break into inflation and the way to make money off of that was to invest in gold now as you said I really think it's amazing the risky talk at that point in time because gold had always been fixed against the US dollar for the entirety of history's all replied the government mandate yes for almost two hundred years of our history gold have been fed actually said this paradigm is going to break and that's really the philosophy of our firm which is you can't just look at the four corners of the financial market you have to look at technology trends political trends and major economic trends and and several years later so you have a lot of patience that that broke I'm fascinated by the gold trade your father puts how much money into gold apple he's so he had an international equity fund and he went to Cheryl as he said I'm doing has said he is going to be eight eighty plus percent of the fund and buy gold mining shares now you couldn't buy gold so that's he was a little bit to your point before he was forced into right buying the shares no GLT and if you want to buy actual gold you're buying futures and its leverage and this time they have futures then well that's right you were talking seventy S. so different here exactly so three quarters of a billion dollars more or less into gold or this was a no no for that we got the fund was teeny you have a lot of money I mean it was way less than a hundred million okay eighty percent I mean does no one wanted international investments in the nineteen sixties it's kind of like today right right I mean you don't want to even talk about it so he piles into gold in this small formally international equity funds it does nothing for two or three years to clock what require clients saying what are investors saying when you have this in gold and not only is it doing nothing but thanks to inflation it's actually worth less each year well it yet gold was less I think the companies were okay I haven't looked at the performance over that time period but the industry was so small berry right the industry exploded in the late seventies because of money market funds run when the rate you get on banks is regulated so it was a cottage industry and you know what ended up happening though because the performance was so tremendous that fund was the best performing mutual fund in the industry in the seventies and decades that deck under the jacket yet Peter let it be Peter Lynch everything here who yeah exactly buying comments he should've been goal and he you know he will head on Merv Griffin I mean it was it was such a big deal back then it was it was popular culture right I mean interest rates were going into the teens and yeah I remember never resign home watching cricket like please don't embarrass us and so obviously that had helped the company is from the time gold explodes when we no longer on the gold standard is what seventy three seventy four early seventies out there so yeah almost twenty years later you come into the company in nineteen ninety two and the firms up to a billion dollars in assets well it got to two billion yeah and you know right at the peak so right right in nineteen eighty and then Paul Voelker comes and and erase that evaluation and some salons gold went down to you know two hundred dollars an ounce so here's only two thousand here's the really big question post Cold you're there ninety two the firm is now one billion from two billion today it's fifty times the size how did you manage to grow the firm over thirty years fifty S. well first of all I it's not first person singular there were a lot of people it was a team one of whom was my brother who passed

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Psychologists know a lot about what pushes kids to become violent. Sometimes it starts when they're young and they've been victims of abuse, or aggression. And that was the case for a young man named Michika. We're not gonna use his full name to protect his privacy. Michigan's years of being attacked in school eventually led to a making threats on social media. But the intervention that turned him around could offer hope for other troubled kids, NPR's Chatterjee reports eight years ago psychologists John van drill got a phone call from Oregon's north Salem high school. It was an assistant principal telling him that a student had written an angry violent Facebook post. There were a number of statements about hitting people with pipes breaking knees. Bashing heads with pipes looking for help in doing so. And then there was this north Salem high school seriously. It's ass. Asking for shooting or something then drills job is to keep school safe. He directs the safety and risk management program for Salem Kaiser public schools, he says he knew of this kid Michigan who is known to be pretty aggressive and combative. There was enough history here to suggest that if we didn't intervene very quickly that we would have a pretty bad situation. Our hands at north high by the time Vendrell arrived at the school that day police officers had already pulled a seventeen year old out of class in handcuffs surrounded by police. I got searched several times and the asked me Scott, lots of questions. The Lisa start asking me questions like pace of what's going on. What's happening? They asked me like was actually intending to do something and not just blowing off steam Michika was angry really angry. That's because he says two of his friends had been jumped by some jocks. My Buddy's got beat up quite literally they got beat up my. But he's got suspended for that. He thought this was unfair. He says his friends didn't start the fight. And in his Facebook post. He was trying to avenge them Vendrell knew that to calm down. He had to see the world through his eyes. He's the one justifying violence, and I have to get behind that. And see why he learned that Michika struggled started way back in middle school. One day Michika says a kit tried to pick a fight as those turning around saying, dude, I don't wanna fight. He takes a swing and hits me directly in my. I were everything just went black for a moment. Like, and I got mad and turn into a physical fight. I was probably the first time. I actually punched a person. He's right. I was severely damaged. He says the next two years he was in and out of surgery. I started failing majority of my classes, I wasn't able to follow along. I was literally had just stand up like a foot away from the what's on the board. Everything was. Just a haze layer anything eventually he says he lost all sight in that eye and the attacks on him. They continued in seventh grade Michika says a group of boys jumped him he says he told the school which students did it and they were suspended. What when they came back. They got even more of their buddies in on the way home. I literally just got bluntly attacked and just out was literally just laying there in the dirt in the mud, and I was getting kicked like, I was a soccer ball. He says he ended up with an abdominal injury and more surgery. That is actually the point where I was like down with everything and everyone on my none of you could protect me. So I don't care about what you guys see. I don't care about your rules. Whether you're wearing police uniform military, whether you're the president of the God himself in best frie- became like. A loose cannon Michika spent his high school years getting in one fight after another. He saw himself as a victim who is gonna pay some people back. So that this injustice didn't continue. And that's that righteous indignation that can drive these kinds of assaults then came senior. And that Facebook post north Salem high school seriously. Sounded like a serious threat but van drill and his team realized that Michigan had no intentions of shooting anyone. And so he was not charged with a crime still. He was angry and volatile Vendrell. Listen to Michiko when he explained why teachers were reaching out kids who needed the help. There weren't the connections. There was the pecking order and the injustice they decided to give me another chance and moved into a smaller school Roberts high where teachers gave him the attention and help he wanted and where he found his first real mentor Stanley Roberts a behavioral analyst at the school.

And I think he was just more of a, you know, where do I fit in always having to fight and just being angry at, you know, at the world's not fair, and I just listened then after while Robert started pushing back did I want to be that guy who's angry and fighting all the time is this what you want. No. Or what do you want can't just walk away from it? I'm like, but as you get older, you can you don't have to stay in that Roberts helped me Scott. Find other ways to solve his problems.

"Welcome back here where I guess John van with racing for vets and balance. Well, John, you know, we heard about community, and you guys seem to be doing a great job there. But give on listening audience again, as I guess from you, particularly how do you prefer seeing the veterans that come into work with you to be portrayed in the community, as they you know, start to rebuild maybe continue their lives. What's what's the best? But trail that you like to see them the being observed as in the community. You know, there's are. That's a great question. And I would say there is a thing that that motor sports and racing in the automotive community. You know, it's competition. It's winning you're out there competing and there. There's a thing when when when I reflect on fellow that always look like I want us to be protrayed as winners at leader. Go getters as people that love our country and love our communities and a lot of times. That's not the way we're portrayed. You know? Unfortunately in the nonprofit sector, you know, fundraising is a major major priority. And they don't portray veterans, you know, as somebody that is a leader. Whereas go getter. They you know, they try to portray us. This is coming from experience as a veteran myself injure veteran as being other injured veterans us Fasching as a fundraising tool. They they'll they'll take the pitchers. And will you out and and portrayed veterans as the most injured most, you know, helpless person in the world, the raise funds, and as a as a veteran myself, and as some somebody that has experience that and seeing other veterans portray like that, you know, that's a fence it to me. And so we always like to say, you know, in our programs. We always had like the -bility not the disability because you don't catch the person you you're a lot of programs just focusing on the injuries and using as a fundraising tool. We're like this is not beneficial. Not only the veteran community. I if not beneficial to any at all because they're creating a stigma of this is what veteran is, you know, and when you have these huge marketing campaigns that are, you know, completely focused on getting as much, you know, donate hours for sympathy hours. They can you know, it's creating a stigma about our community and a lot of the business world. They have the stigma about PTSD and problems associated with it or they don't realize that you know, these veterans with PTSD there. Go getters their winners leaders. You know, they're they're they're easy fourth colonels. They're, you know, they mass our majors, you know, just because they have the stigma PTSD, you know, we should focus on you know, like what what their spirit was in the military. But their position was you know, it's a shame. When you see, you know. Major portrayed in certain way. And and you know, his ten ten seconds of fame. Whatever organization he's with or whatever pitcher he's captured with is focusing on his disability and service, not his outstanding leadership. Now, his ability capabilities, and that's one of the things that how we are raising for vets we focus on doing differently. We understand that, you know, marketing wise, it may not be you know, that that's the but other veteran and as a somebody that cares about the community. You know, that's that's our main focus we understand that you know, it may not be the dust fund raising tactic in in in may not be the best businesses Asian, but the best decision for the veteran in our community is their portrayal of who we are leaders and capable people that just wanna be back involved in our community at a at a respectable position. And when we come back into the community. And we communicate that we do have these, you know, these push stress or traumatic brain injury or abbey tea, or you know, other things that are getting treated we don't want..

"John van with racing for vets and Bill. Gary, and John also, you know, sometimes I have this to make the statement of the actually it's a question rhetorically, what is the cost of war in terms of human capital? And I guess in John's case with the veterans that he's working with that. He probably often come in contact with veterans like himself who recovering from post traumatic stress for Matic brain injury. John gibson. I d- are listening audience. Some of these individuals who are recovering after serving our country. But again trying to reintegrate back in home and community and continue their lives. Well, you know, when I would say the the the key element missing win. These veterans are coming back and they're in therapy. They're getting their treatment is being involved in the community. We we have to find ways and opportunities to get the veterans involved in the community directly. Then with businesses groups, you know, rotaries, you know, any type of networking opportunities. Because you know, we can have the best remai- and best, you know, Medicare in the world.

"It's a very, very risky position for him to stand up and make a bowl play like that to use his idol that he found in a really effective way. I do give more credit to vendor there, but I do think like on both of them, I think it was a big move to them and I do. Both think it was the right move for both of them. Now, do you think again, forgetting to Tom about the tribal council, do you think he will embrace that move? Sort of like what we're we were talking about before, or do you think he sort of is again going to play up to his core values? Knowing Tom, I totally expect for him to put his foot in his mouth, but who knows? We might see an Australian survivor 2016 level of complete transformation and personality in the fight on tribal council were Tom comes out of the gate saying, like I made a lot more moves than you all thought I did. Let's remember as well even pass the past couple rounds. He was one of the pivotal people who flipped at the merge essentially dictated the next like four or five votes. So we talked about this controlled the whole game is that the merger, I feel like, you know, Verner was obviously in the number one power position a looking back on it. Tom might have been in position number two, maybe could take it in there as well up to the past couple of votes, but it's very surprising, but there is. There's some grounds believe there, especially with this move to the point you made earlier. It is interesting to me that when Verner went to the jury, he said that he thought that Annelies was the one who made the move. Now we do have one more person come into the jury. Maybe they might reflect a different story, but I wonder if how this move played on the jury, that's going to impact how the final votes go down to. Yeah, I mean, just looking at the three and you didn't know what had happened, wouldn't you think Annelies. Awesome. The move just knowing we do about each of these people will also you assume that like analysts dead in the water. That's why Verner essentially says, look, there's no use talking game play with their, let's make personal connections with her. So you'd think that he would assume like, oh, he was. She was the one to get the two boats. I mean, I just think he probably wouldn't. His first assumption would not be ozone, and Tom were plotting against me. That's also the fact that he was trying to architecture this to one one vote as well. He probably gives Emily's more credit. I will say, I love Annelies. I will say John and Tom might have bigger episode for Sean and Tom over analysts going into this finale episode. Yeah, I think so too, but I'm not sure that that's how the jury will look at it. We did actually get a question from Dave back offing this, who will the jury credit with alpha, and will it be the big move that gives the person the win for me. I do think that it's not clear enough to be a game winning move. I think that it's the kind of thing that will affirm whatever the jury believes that if you are on t. Manolete you'll be like, how amazing is it that she is a huge jury threat didn't go home at full when it seemed like she was dead in the water. You credit her. If you're a big John van, then you then you can credit her and say, she convinced home. If you're a big Tom found, I don't know who that person is, but if you are then, yeah, fine. Fair enough. If you're less than you say, okay, well, he turned around and made the move when Verna believed that he was the one who would stay loyal to him..
