Put your tongue on their asshole and you'll have millions of dollars in no time. Well not everyone is going to do it. And so what's the point sending these kids right. We've already bid and you've already doomed to a life of mediocrity anyway. What's the point of sending them there so that it can be more mediocre than the other mediocre kids. I don't know. I don't know but it's pretentious and it's it's nonsensical because now we've had promises for both the biden and the trump administration's that these schools would follow protocol that they would protect the teachers at all cost. And what are they doing there. I i see it all the time. They allow these kids. Just come in there. They don't have mask on. You know you hear all kinds of reports from teachers how they had their mask on when they came in the morning than taking them off throughout the day. Not everyone has had vaccines by far.

You're not you're not an athlete. You're not trying to be a hero. You're not a politician. You become a teacher because you want a secure job. They even get the met. You're gonna be left with a very reduced teaching force and remember when when your child your your you know you with your rich ass.

Interview with Curtis Pierce Author of "Pacific on the Right: Two Pilots, One Airplane, a Lifetime of Memories"
"That is the book about flying down at Chile and first of all. I guess the question is why in the world did you fly a one seventy two from where you aren't Phoenix all the way down to Santiago Chile you could have just put it in a crate ship. Well, that's a that's a good question and I guess I'll answer it with a with a quick story I would instructor for several years and loved instructing I love teaching I. Had I don't know forty fifty students that I did sign offs four and countless other students that were you know checkouts and be Afars and and so on. But I especially my private students I always. Trying to instill in them the idea that that this is something that you you're going to do forever you want to get that certificate you WanNa keep it current you wanna find that joy if lying the rest of us have already figured out and one of the ways that I told them to kind of do that or suggested. Is that they avoid the trap of the Hundred Dollar Hamburger in my time as an instructor I saw so many students would you know get their their private and they would fly for a couple years? They'd go have breakfast. You know an hour away couple of hours away and whatever, and just do kind of. You know little runs day trips and stuff and they got bored because you know after a while you've been all the places that are in our way and you know you, you've already had every dish on the menu at your favorite airport restaurant and then you get bored. And so I I always told my students you know You know rent the plane overnight go places take your family you know make it make it kind of a gateway to all these experiences that you can't have with the airlines are or just by road tripping around. And one of my students who really took that to heart and he bought a brand new Cessna one, seventy, two and told me hey I I. WanNa buy this plane and I want to fly it to Chile after I, pick it up and I said. And you know you can just take the wings off and put it in a container and You know in a couple of months it'll be waiting for you. And he laughed he goes well, aren't you the guy that told me I should go fly and have adventures and not just do the hunter dollar hamburger and I said well yeah. And so that was how we came to do it. He he was my private student he bought the airplane delivered. maybe a month or two before he got his private we spent another month or two of getting the equipment we needed and flying off the I fifty hours on the engine. You know to go through the break in period so we could switch to regular oil. And obviously, you know we didn't want to be surprised by any bugs or any any issues with the airplane that we might find. We didn't have any and so we we did that fifty hours and then we on a very cold November morning in Scottsdale Arizona we we took off for Santa Iago. Wow and that's But there's a little bit of planning ahead though before we just jumped on the plane and win so tells us a little bit about that as far as going down because I'm sure it took like a month or a month or whatever to get down there. How did you go about especially with a brand new student planning a trip through multiple countries, different types of aerospace down to Chile well it started out with him saying, how do we do this and me saying you know I've never actually flown out of the country before. The my student who became my very good friend that where we're still very good friends to this day more than twenty years later. He was a very successful businessman from Chile. had businesses all over central and south. America. was very well versed in business and in traveling and kind of negotiating the red tape of doing business in other countries, and so he he didn't know the nation part of it, but but he was already a depth kind of weaving his way through bureaucracy. And what I brought to the table was obviously you had a bad prion, two thousand and fifteen hundred hours at that time. So I've been flying for while. and so I kind of knew the airplane part of it but the actual planning basically started with me saying, Hey, let's just call planning company and be done with it. Just send US everything and we'll send them a check. Well, it turns out that there's not a single planning company that will touch a piston airplane they they only do jets and so we basically did it on her own. We found an F., B. O. and Chile that was willing to help us a little bit while we were on the road this was. Cell phones were around but not too many people had them, and certainly an international plans were not a thing. So. We kind of needed somebody in real time could assist us. But for the most part we we searched out all the permits ourselves just. was basically you know cold calling the various agencies in in all the different countries we plan to land in and just got the permits we had email, and so most of it was done by email I spoke a little bit of Spanish but it wasn't great and so he did most of the communicating and I did kind of logistical planning of okay. We're in a one, seventy two we can go about four hours, and so we mapped out our stops and figured out you know what would be technical stop where we would just get gas and keep on going and then what stops would be overnight stops where we would have to clear customs and Have permission to stay on an overnight basis, and so it it took about six months I kept a journal and I still have all my notes you know phone numbers and email addresses for all these different agencies and when I contacted who and kept tractable of all the permits as they came in But we we kind of had a date set. We wanted to hit the weather so that it wasn't too hot wasn't too cold on either end because obviously the seasons are opposite and in south, America. So we had to kind of thread the needle weather wise So we started pretty early but by. Probably late September early October we had everything lined up that we needed one looking at the at the math here I had to refresh my geography I guess. Just just looking at the root, you'd have to take up the one, seventy two. You'RE NOT GONNA fly over the Pacific Ocean right? Right. Right there. So I mean just down obviously from Arizona through Mexico and. Guatemala Nicaragua to be fifteen countries or something along the way. It was eleven, countries, eleven. Affair yes. And and being a one, seventy two you probably had to stop and most of them I'd imagine. Or Eight. Now we didn't use. We didn't use bladder tanks. The airplane was completely unmodified so like I said, you know that airplane Was a sixty gallon usable airplane or no sorry fifty gallon US airplane. So burning ten gallons and our meant for hours and we we needed a place to land. So we we based. All of our flight planning on that was that we we couldn't go any more than four hours,
Fast Five With Flight School Association Chief Robert Rockmaker
"Could you describe some of the association's goals and and the outcomes? In the early years we're now eleven years old was really focused on building the core foundation of the organization and at the same time working to help bring about some cultural changes that we had identified that were present in the flight training environment in America and I think we've done a pretty good job of meeting some of those early targets. For example, there were numerous occasions where flight schools would take large security deposits from point training. Students. And for whatever reason, and there's many different reasons, the schools, all of a sudden. Close up doors are locked lighter off and the students show up and have no idea what's going on those deposits could be as much as twenty thousand dollars at a time, and unfortunately there was no recourse in almost every situation students were out dead money or their parents route that money it seemed to be more prevalent school that we're doing foreign play training bringing people in from other countries and as you know, America is the leader in training foreign individuals more foreign play training is done in. America than anywhere else. So, what did the association do about that the students forfeiting those deposits? We brought it out and we wrote about it and we wanted people to be aware that it was at least on some people radar in our new website. We actually have that as one of the many checkoff items for the general public to be aware of we're not opposed to having security deposit or an advanced deposit because some flight schools will offer a discount if you put down some additional moneys versus just paying by the hour but I, think we recommend no. More than between one thousand or two thousand dollars be put down at any given time. There's no reason to go any further unless you're in an accelerated program we do have schools across the country who specialized in accelerated training as you know, and you can get a private pilot certificate in two to three weeks and he'd do a very good job. They have specific syllabus put together for these kind of programs. Well, you can imagine typically might cost eight to ten thousand. Dollars to take two or three week private pilots course all the way through and you're all done in three weeks at the most those schools will require a larger deposit. So we're not saying that there are extenuating circumstances because there are but at the same time, we are certainly guiding people that there is no reason to be putting large sums of money down because in most cases, there's no special account that is set up, and if that school closes its doors they're. On you can't find them, and in some cases, some of these schools disappeared, they had leases at the airports they walk away from the leases if their own by a foreigner, they may even go back to their country. There are folks that have dual citizenship. They just literally disappear if you have fifty students and fifty students have put down ten thousand dollars in advanced deposits. That's five hundred, thousand dollars if they put down twenty thousand dollars toward their training, that's a million dollars. We wrote about it. We talked about it. We are now putting it on our new website as well to educate people because the public is not aware of some of these things. It's in the news every day that the airlines are threatening or actually shedding thousands of pilots from their payrolls has that had an impact on the pilot training community are people backing away from this as a career. Right now I don't think there's any professional in the industry that would stay that there's a overabundance of commercial career pilots. However, this will change over the next twelve months as far out as maybe thirty six months. We all know that domestic airline service in this country continues to come back and it was just August thirty first or August thirtieth where the airlines are starting to. Relax on their policies, regarding changes of airfare and seat selection and travel dates, and so forth. I believe United announced at I and I believe American has now announced it as of today, which is September the first and so domestically, the airlines are certainly looking to get people back into the air and from what we see the general public still has that real urge to get up. And go not everybody of course, and there are some people who are not going to travel right now by air or even leave their house because of the covy will fully understand but people wanna get up they WANNA get out they want to visit family they want go to special occasions they want to go on vacation for a couple of days and the best way to get. There is normally to go buy airline. If you're traveling longer mileages that the international air carrier movement will take a longer period of time, and that's because every country has its own. Instead of Kobe guidelines. Number one, they're setting the criteria for when people can come in and out of their country and they're setting in some cases, quarantine restrictions, and therefore international travel is definitely gonNA take. Longer to come back will the pilot shortage come back again the answer is, yes. The FAA requires under the A. Ours that all airline pilots cannot fly after age sixty five as an airline pilot by regulation and to some of the most senior and experienced airline captains. Today are not flying because they typically are flying the international routes and international is still very, very slow as. Compared to pre covid airlines were having record years they were flying record numbers of available seat miles, revenue passenger miles, load factors on both domestic and international have just been unbelievable airlines have been doing very very well financially over the past couple of years. But again, they also took probably the largest hit between airline travel and the hospitality industry I think those are the three that have. Really impacted the greatest but pilot. Wise. It's GonNa come back and we are encouraging young people to continue their career pathways because if someone brand new starts today to learn to fly and they WANNA be a career pilot they're going to have to build their flight time and that can take anywhere from on the low side about a year and a half up to about three. Years before they're able to be eligible to be hired on into the right seat of a regional airline to two to three years from now, the people that are even starting now will be in a position to be ready to go. So we WANNA see the pipeline stay filled as much as possible, and we are not discouraging anyone at this point in time, there will be positions.
Former Kansas State president Jon Wefald on college football amid pandemic
"Dr John We follow the former president at at Kansas state. Thanks for spending a few more minutes with a doctor. I wanted to ask you you mentioned. Where the college presidents are, but but some have pushed back and said while it wall. It is a dangerous decision to green light at cancelling. It might be even worse when you consider the financial risk You've sat in those chairs. You sat these NCWA committee meetings. You've been part of negotiations. What's at risk for college athletic departments and colleges themselves? Paul I'm already there because there's not going GonNa be a college football season this year, so I mean. Look at the the big ten's already canceled. But forty two games the the PAC twelve is canceled like thirty six. So and in the presence are are are in charge of the entire university. So you know when I hear Ross talking. I understand completely. He's got every scenario looked at. But, even if everything's perfect there and you get a multitude of students getting the covid nineteen, the president's are going to call the season off, but here's the deal I'm already. Looking at the consequences, and and they are bleak. the University of Minnesota did A. Long Study and was in the Minneapolis Tribune. Let's say they're athlete budgets one hundred, twenty three. And if there's no football season for Minnesota and the big ten. Their athletic budget, just kind of in half and say for. Let's say the sixty five power five schools. Paul. There's no football this year. Their athletes budgets are close to cut in half, and in some cases more in some cases less. But will you saw Stanford I mean Look Stanford is one of the richest universities one of the best universities in the world, and they've already cancelled eleven, so called Olympic Spring Sports and. You're going to see other schools in the power five conferences eliminating. Those sports left and right here in the near future, because they won't be able to afford like at the University of Minnesota if they go from one hundred, twenty, three, million and that budget's cut in half. They're GONNA have to start eliminating sport, so it's going to be devastating. Who wants to eliminate sports? But here you've got this great school. Stanford that's already eliminated eleven, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. And so for Kansas, state. Let's say our budget is like eighty five million well, it would go down to thirty eight to forty million, so we would have to cut sports to. So the consequences of the limited, he's coaches and telling teams We just can't afford anymore and their moms and dads are furious. No it's GonNa be very painful. And Athletic Departments Are Really important all of our schools and. And you know if you lose half your budget because of this pandemic call covid nineteen. Oh i. tell you what it is. It is GONNA be so devastating Paul I hate to think about it because you know once that college football season half the budget for most of these half-baked departments. It's gone into the night. Actually, we feel. Let me go back. Something I I know you've answered it and I don't mean to be repetitive, but. Okay, but we talked to people and you've. You've addressed one or two of the interviews and. I'm struggling because there's such a disconnect I'm talking to people every day. I had commissioner on from another conference earlier and they're optimistic. Glass half full and all this, and then you're. You're not even. You're not even taking a breath and just saying there's not going to be college football. The same thing you seven months ago and I'm I'm trying to figure out you know. If what you say is true. Why are they saying with? They're saying. Well. I suppose you could call wishful thinking. I'm a quintessential. I'd be doing the same thing Paul was. president or Director today. So I I, would all the I mean I'd be doing exactly what you're saying. They're saying. If you're not sure you don't think they really believe it. Well I. Don't think they've really looked at it. Seriously I don't think I think. Really. Underestimating is enemy called Cova nineteen. It's everywhere in in some cases in America is on the uptick, and it's had an increase that you know a lot of places are. Kind of dangerous to go. But you know I see. Here's the deal this covert nineteen. Let's say here. We have sixty five universities. In, hundreds of athletes and coaches that wanted to do a perfect job and start the season on September fifth and go through twelve games, and so forth in the problem is. They're not in control. This is an enemy. That's everywhere. Kind of little communist, running all over the place from China. And so they could just wake up one day and find out that three hundred fifty students at Kansas state have developed covid nineteen.
"less than fifty students" Discussed on Dictators
"In Bundy. The students began shouting after the Shah Bokassa. In Response Bokassa sent the military to help the police break up. The protests and violence erupted well into the night. When the smoke finally cleared, an unknown number of people were dead. But. Bokassa had regained control of the city. And When word of the protests reached, France President Gee scar offered to help Mukasa with alone, Bokassa readily accepted, and for once didn't syphon it all for himself. Instead. He actually used it to pay the teachers, civil servants and soldiers what they were owed. He hoped that with the students parents now paid, the disobedience would end. But the Protests which started spontaneously ignited a revolution for the next few months, resistance organizations secretly began cropping up around the city throughout March and April. Rallies and strikes erupted with one demand the end of Bokassa. Bokassa became increasingly annoyed. No matter how many teachers he arrested, the rallies continued and grew in number. And when one rally in mid April resulted in mass arrests by the Military Bokassa had reached his tipping point. At midnight on April Eighteenth Bokassa ordered the military to roundup students of all ages in Bongi. For hours soldiers swept through the streets, going door to door and arresting Dron. For those who weren't able to flee to the neighboring republic of Zaire it was often garlic buff prison. For the next twelve hours or so, these children were tortured. Many of them beaten to death. Some witnesses would later claim that Bo. Himself partook in the torture using his. Campaign to beat the children. When the parents demanded answers, government denied that the arrests took place eventually they admitted that less than fifty students had been arrested an eighteen. But Bokassa knew that the arrests painted him in a horrible late, so on April twentieth he declared himself the father and protector of all children, and ordered that it was now illegal to arrest and imprison the you. The next day April twenty first the surviving students were released with a lethal warning that if they acted up again, they would never see Freedom Bokassa was convinced that his firm response would be enough to suppress any more dissent from the students. But, he couldn't have been more wrong. Coming up the downfall of an empire now back to the story. From January through April hundred seventy nine students throughout the central African Empire protested the rule of Emperor. John Bedel Bokassa. After arresting torturing and murdering some of the students, Bokassa hoped that his firm hand would put an end to the descent. Instead it was the beginning of his end for his empire. Within weeks of the April arrests disturbing reports spread to Europe violence against children in the Central African Empire. In London, witnesses testified on the atrocities before Amnesty International. On May Fourteenth, the organization published a report on what they learned. All throughout. Europe calls rang out for an investigation into the massacres. Though 'cause downplayed the report, he claimed the press was blowing everything out of proportion. But French President Valery Giscard knew how bad it looked not only for Bokassa, but for himself, so he called for the creation of an investigative commission. Bokassa only agreed to cooperate after she scar threatened to cut off French aid. But that didn't mean he had to be entirely truthful. During interviews with the investigative commission and the press, because the continued his campaign of denial, he proclaimed that Amnesty. International had exaggerated the situation. He went so far as to blame an unnamed French ex wife of his as the mastermind of the whole thing. But as the investigation continued, the mood in the empire was changing Bokassa, began to sense that something was amiss. His relationship with the French and members of his own cabinet was suspicious by July Bokassa was paranoid that a coup was foot. He wasn't wrong. Many within Bokassa's government realized the gravity of the situation. The possibility of serious blowback became more apparent each day. They knew they needed to distance themselves from the emperor, one of those concerned men was none other than the former president David Dacko in the middle of July. dako defected to France with the intention of overthrowing his cousin, claiming that a full scale revolution was on the horizon. Unfortunately, the French government wasn't buying. They refuse to help Dako. However. They allowed him to stay in the country for his own safety. Dacca's defection angered Bokassa, but he saw it as more of an annoyance than a real threat, his empire would remain intact. Unfortunately such peace of mind only lasted a few weeks at the end of July the final report by the French commission was about to be released, and it didn't look good for Bukasa. On August first Bokassa discovered that his friend scar was demanding that he step down. The report directly implicated Bokassa in the massacres, including his direct participation in the torturing of children. But Bokassa refused. He would not abdicate, nor would he accept the offer of living peacefully in France. If they wanted him off the throne. They would have to take it from him. Frowns decided to do just that. In the middle of August, the commission's report was released and sparked the outrage. Everyone was expecting. Within days France all economic aid to the Empire that was not related to humanitarian projects like health or education. At the same time, the French military drafted up plans to lead the Central African Empire. Known as Operation Barracuda, the plan was to peacefully topple Bokassa and install a successor. The French ultimately decided to reinstate David Dacko as president, but Dako wasn't too keen on the idea. Yes, he wanted his cousin deposed, but dako feared Bokassa's revenge. But when the French met with Dako, he reluctantly agreed mostly because he was strapped for cash and being president would afford him the chance to fill his pockets. France made the invasion known to neighboring leaders in Africa and all of them. Former friends of Bokassa agreed not to intervene. They too, had grown tired of the emperor. Bokassa meanwhile was busy trying to keep the nation from going bankrupt. With French Aid Gone Bokassa was unable to pay his soldiers and civil servants.

How are colleges spending their relief money from the CARES act?
"How're colleges spending their relief money from the federal government Congress set aside fourteen billion dollars for colleges universities and their students and it matters a lot how to use that money colleges not only shut down this spring but face uncertainty about the fall semester the president of Brown University told us recently that some universities could go out of business if they fail to reopen this fall NPR's listen that warning is been following the money good morning good morning what our education leaders saying about that fourteen billion dollars that they received so from the beginning if they said fourteen billion was not enough the American council on education hired lobbying group called the money willfully inadequate we're seeing colleges with massive budget shortfalls there's hiring freezes and furloughs and cuts to programs although there is a fourteen billion dollars where is the money going so the majority of that money was in a bucket of about twelve point five billion dollars that went directly to college as the law requires that each school give half that money directly to students whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic they're facing financial challenges struggling to make ends meet and will not as interesting so the universities don't necessarily get a lot for teacher salaries or something like that the students get a lot of what seems like a lot are they benefiting so it really depends on what school you go to whether or not you've seen that money yet so it's been up to the schools to distribute the money which means they make an application they decide who gets that and there's a lot of need right now in college campuses and there's only so much money in the pot and then there's this larger question about eligibility so several weeks ago that department said only students who are eligible for federal student aid were allowed to get the coronavirus relief that essentially in excludes international students and undocumented students including those protected under daca mmhm and the community college system in California has actually sued education secretary Betsy to boss over those restrictions calling them arbitrary and unlawful but the entertainment told NPR in a statement that if Congress wanted to include non US citizens they would have explicitly said so I'm glad you mentioned education education secretary device because she's been a subject of some of your other reporting on a portion of the cures act this relief bill that is used to have been used to boost small private colleges what's the news there that's right so there was a bucket of money a smaller back about three hundred and fifty million for it the secretary to top of schools that haven't gotten much relief from other parts of the bill and we now know that money went mostly to small private schools many of them religious so one example is wind Brenner theological seminary in Ohio they have about a hundred fifty students certificates and graduate degrees they're in the process of receiving about half a million dollars prince please when the president there told me it'll be about a third of their budget for next year and they plan to use that to offset tuition we are smaller school we have a very focused mission it's too quick leaders for service in god's kingdom which is not a shared mission however possibility in the number of students we could reach through eight seventy that these fungal while you know this comes at a time when public colleges especially community colleges are really hurting these are tens of thousands of students and that's in comparison to the smaller some schools that serve you know in some cases a hundred students okay so questions about the distribution of the money and the amount as well and we'll surely hear more on this subject listen thanks

"Easier for students to maintain safe distances and avoid unnecessary exposure to potentially dangerous germs according to the school the size and location of Bradley says the incoming president have been boasting have been a boasting point for many years now I I used to live about fifty yards fifty feet from Bradley Abbas right across from the field house over there the president of that school is Steven Steven Steven do you pronounce your last name for me I see it and I heard you said earlier today sure sure it says Standifer standard for just like it looks yeah newly appointed you actually don't become the you're acting right now and I believe your term begins in June is that right so it was right we actually ship with a little bit I actually started formally at the beginning of may and we're kind of a unique situation we actually go to president model right now which is quite frankly in today's environment advantageous quest how do you do to presidents transaction been working really well so Gerry Roberts is also the president I hear that they and he's really handling a lot of the day to day activities that would normally go to the president's position and it's freed me up to really think about our current situation and to plant what things are gonna look like in the fall so is that correct you guys are planning on student contacted the third week in August town we are actually that's something we've been working pretty aggressively on for the last few weeks is there something with that would dissuade you from that is it certain that you do that or or what would happen to keep you from doing that it's a good question I mean actually that the keeping to keep us from doing that as we will of course comply by federal state and local guidelines so if we find that in fact there are a variety of reasons the state has decided that we're not ready to open up as much as we hope you are by Alcatel obviously closer attention and the complied by that so are you your employment is at work go ahead well our plan is to in fact well we're planning to be fully operational come August second form part of the model import parts we are set up we're working aggressively towards now our other universities or colleges in the state doing have they announced similar plans they have and it's interesting the chronicle of higher education actually tracks this in a little over sixty percent of the universities nationwide announced that plans are in fact talking about trying to be face to face I in the fall as well of course all of that will depend on the evolution of what the crown of our stars thank god that seems to be in a multi plan for number of schools I presume that's regional high and may be more likely in some areas than other areas I think that's absolutely correct and and and and and as you well know we've been here in the state of Illinois we're looking at different regions of the state will probably open differently and I think this is one of the areas where our location is advantageous for us we're not in high density urban environment which makes it a little easier for us to consider the possibilities and I heard you say that and I I get that but I also don't for instance in Chicago we've got lower we have to Paul northwestern has a downtown campus in a very densely populated areas so social distancing I guess is a lot more difficult here but but but but any you've got five thousand people on that campus and they're all living in a relatively compact area and you anybody spend to any college of any size knows there's a lot of humor in an interaction so I wonder how different your experience really will be then it will be for somebody at the Paul yes so immediately sixteen of that's gonna be a challenge for us we've been looking at our house in options you actually I think that spot on housing is one of the more challenging pieces but we know the area we've we've had some overflow options if we need to create social distancing options the other people were looking at or things like food services if you have everybody converge on food services at the same time that becomes problematic so one of the things we were very much I need to be face to face we want to get fully operational again in in in in the face to face format in the fall but it will look different we should probably certain that it's going to look different so how we base our student taught how we interact how we have them even come to class with various teams looking at different things and we may have to state how we have students coming to class on a regular basis if you made alternate plans for dorms like one child with one student per room or every other room what are you doing so absolutely that that would be either a bombing plans but that's exactly the kind of conversation you can have that effect we could look at a lot of one person per room hi it's added up happening of course we've got some overflow spaces throughout the community that we work with partners start talking to some of our local partners some of the hotel someone in town but if we need to we could expand to create more social distancing the other thing that helps is our residence halls for example per floor there's less than fifty students per core so there's already some opportunities to straighten things out in a way that would be difficult otherwise have you heard from parents or students are they all thumbs up or they not so sure all right yes so it's a little bit of both right so I mean one of the things that we care deeply about we have a shared interest with students parents and health and well being of our students faculty and staff so one of the things will be doing is communicating more more our exact plans to assure that health safety net could be key part of this actually working class white and I think as we get more more messages out of exactly what we're planning to do and how we plan to do it people get more more comfortable with what we're trying to do in the fall M. would your plan include the need to have regular testing of the students faculty and staff it does in fact were very much into macular active conversations with a couple different groups right now I want to make sure that we can actually gauge and after testing also some some trading opportunities also there was some type of contact we could trace and identify ways tackles one of our students really introduced us to some very creative apps that exist today on options of tracing technology in terms of connections with one another but we're going to things it helps us is we have some great local partners that we work with so for example the US healthcare system actually runs our our health center here on campus and a great partner for us so actively engaged in a variety of conversations around exactly what that would look like I don't know exactly what's going to be up but we we know that we're going to be doing something in that space within our local partner similar terms or active conversations with the president stand for these all sound like these are plans and ideas but they're not eleven cast in stone yet I mean I'm I would be worried if I were you that we are going to be able to get all of this done in time so you know we were active conversations in a variety of different areas so I think in terms of our ability to to to lock in on some things were intentionally remain flexible to get more information but I feel fairly confident of our ability to lock in on things like testing in the house you know those dishes are popping up yeah but we don't know for certain and and and a little bit too fast expanding your your comment or question is on it would also be irresponsible for us not to be thinking of what happens if we are unable to come back to campus that is things perhaps taken evolution the none of us anticipated so we're also planning for those contingencies as well I wanted to talk about that too I I need to pause here for just a moment but I don't think that the value of an online education is anywhere near as high or as good as it is and on campuses in in personages forget the social aspects of although that's a big part of why you go to school but I'm just talk about the value of the education what's your thought.

interesting things and so tell tell Richard he's been holding a long time tell Rick rather tell Rick I'll be right with them but the the former New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury he is coaching and training he coaches a Chinese basketball team in Beijing these days and he said that he had put together a deal from a Chinese manufacturer for N. ninety five masks to deliver ten million of these masks to New York City has his hometown I believe he's in Coney Island in in Brooklyn I think that's where he grew up and I guess he's run into some issues with the coordination between the Chinese company and the and the city of New York Marbury told the New York Post that he arranged for the supplier in China to sell masks for two dollars seventy five cents each nearly a third less or two thirds less rather nearly two thirds less than the standard price tag first well that's that that's that's wrong the jacked up price gouging price have has pushed these masks masks there three four five six even seven dollars which is preposterous what yep that it maybe two thirds less than the current jacked up price which there's total exploitation here folks so it's it's really disgusting it really is but the fact is the wholesale price on these N. ninety five masks when medical facilities hospitals when states when governments by these things and quality the regular price pre pandemic these things cost between fifty cents and eighty cents a piece so to say that always got a two dollar and seventy five cent deal going which is two thirds that's the jacked up ridiculous extortion

"First responders yes first crack you should have absolute priority would without a doubt I mean no stores down should not be restocked with masks if they have support they ought to go to a health care professionals without a doubt if you happen to have some or one or two lying around well listen I'm just I'm giving you the facts here the virus is transmitted by droplets and close contact droplets play a very important role you've got to wear a mask because when you speak there always droplets coming out of your mouth that's when the Chinese center K. K. Cheng a public health expert at the university of Birmingham in the UK not Alabama he said it's not to protect yourself is to protect people against the droplets coming out of your respiratory tract I don't want to frighten you but when people speak and breathe even saying you don't have to sneeze or cough these droplets are coming out they all are and it's even when you know someone's not spitting on you when they talk you know the Hey say it don't spray it even when you don't freeze spray when you're near somebody stuff is coming out of there you don't even see it I know it's gonna grow some people but it's it's like all the time it's like that it is sitting at a table you're having dinner with somebody when they speak you're probably having stuff flying out of their mouth all dear fold just so happens we've got this corona virus outbreak these days and kinda you know apple finds the issue just read more here so that was the R. post them I can go to the New York Times and The New York Times just published a piece more Americans should probably wear masks for protection experts have started to question whether masks may offer at least some protection to healthy individuals and the central workers as the corona virus pandemic rages on experts have started to question official guidance about whether ordinary healthy people should protect themselves with a regular surgical mask or even a scarf not not even the N. ninety fives because even those things can offer some degree of protection the World Health Organization and the centers for disease control and prevention continue to state that masks don't necessarily protect healthy individuals from getting infected as they go about their daily lives the official guidance continues to recommend that mask should be reserved for people who are already sick as well as for the health workers and care givers who must interact with infected individuals on a regular basis everyone else they say should stick the frequent hand washing and maintaining a distance of at least six feet from other people to protect themselves but only dark around here it goes on to say and healthy individuals especially those with essential jobs who cannot avoid public transportation or closer direction with others may need to start wearing masks more frequently the swift increase in cases to these levels in the U. S. highlights to an even greater degree the importance of implementing and adhering to public health measures that's according to Dr Robert Atmar infectious disease specialist at Baylor college of medicine while wearing a mask may not necessarily prevent healthy people from getting sick and it certainly doesn't replace important measures such as hand washing or social distancing it may be better than nothing says Dr at Mar there is very little data showing the flat surgical masks in particular have a protective effect for the general public masks work by stopping infected droplets spewing from the wearer's nose or mouth rather than stopping the acquisition of virus from others that is why the World Health Organization the CDC recommends that people already infected with coronavirus wear masks but see also people that have no symptoms people that are a symptomatic that don't even know they have the virus but could spread it if they have a mask on they could stop the spread to other people story goes on to say health workers wear masks because they interact with sick patients regularly and often have to lean close to important for important medical procedures exposing themselves to a higher amounts of viral particles and if healthy individual start stockpiling surgical masks in high grade and ninety five masks they can also make it harder for health workers to get resources they need on the front lines no doubt about it but again a one zero two zero if someone has in their garage while some are doing that donating those boxes in those packages to hospitals and I commend them and I I recommend that as well if you have one that you views of your if you got a bunch of men you want to hang on to one there's there's nothing wrong with that it in my opinion researchers conducted systematic reviews of a variety of interventions during the sars outbreak back in two thousand three they found that hand washing more than ten times daily was fifty five percent affect him in stopping virus transmission while wearing a mask was actually more affected at about sixty eight percent wearing gloves offer about the same as and hand washing by the way but hand washing wearing masks or gloves and protective gowns increased the intervention effectiveness to ninety one percent that's pretty significant classified data from the Chinese government that was reported in the South China morning post indicated that up to a third of all people who tested positive for corona virus could have been silent carriers widespread testing on the diamond princess showed that half of the positive cases on the cruise ship I had no symptoms and officials in Iceland who have tested a high proportion of citizens of the country have found similarly high percentages of a symptomatic infection folks that just showed no symptoms but they were carrying the virus and they could infect other people it's still hard to tell what percentage of people are truly a symptomatic because many go on to develop symptoms a few days later said Dr Neil Fishman the chief medical officer of the hospital of the university of Pennsylvania what we do know is that individuals can shed virus about forty eight hours before they develop symptoms and masking can prevent transmission from those individuals wearing a mask can also reduce the likelihood that people will touch their face which is another motor transmission masks are also an important signal that it's not business as usual during a pandemic some of the data if everyone in the community was a basket could decrease transmission according to Dr Fishman at the university of Pennsylvania so can I get an you know we we've heard different stories on the masks and I don't want to see them be taken out of the

Tear gas shot by Turkey and Greece over migrants at border
"Now for over a week Greece and Turkey have been locked in an acrimonious standoff since Ankara announced it will no longer prevent migrants crossing to the European Union Greece's vowed not to let migrants in its Coast Guard boats have forced migrant dinghies back at sea and have fired warning shots Greece's prime minister has said that Turkey has orchestrated the crisis and he's using the migrants as political pawns Turkey accuses Greece of endangering lives and violating international law on asylum at the border town of Kasur niece they have been further clashes Turkish forces fired tear gas across the border Greece security forces responded with tear gas of their own and water cannons this in a bid to stop migrants from crossing and then late last night fire ripped through a refugee shelter on the Greek island of Lesbos this was a school for refugee children located inside the same compound on the line is the Arab Israeli journalist Lucy Harish she spent some time at that school only a few weeks ago Lucy good morning welcome good morning Julian thank you for having me what are you hearing about the events of that school in the last twelve hours or so well basically what god I've heard in the last twelve hours is that the police are still investigating double deliberate to ours and that occurred in the school and we have to understand the what happened on the island on Lesvos island which has been let's say then like everybody were in one way or another looking that this is going to happen I think that clashes when I was there few few weeks ago clashes occurred between locals and between extreme right activists that came in today online and basically all the NGOs spoke had a big meeting a few weeks ago with the E. U. and they explained very delicate situation that they're in so I think that in one way or another everybody were expecting that something like that will happen just just give a bit of context about because clearly nobody's going to justify the violence that's going on here our system numbers I mean when it when you look at the numbers of people arriving compared with the number of people who live on less boss most of the time he's he's a strikingly dramatically different number that is why there is exactly this is the point this is the exact point that we need to focus on because I not in last boss and not this specific part of the island there is a refugee camp Moria refugee camp where refugee camp was built originally for three hundred three thousand four hundred people right now it contains twenty three thousand people so we're talking that the locals are that are living in Lesvos are twenty seven thousand people so basically we're talking about the same amount of refugees compared like the same amount of people were living in Greece so I think that the clashes were or something that everybody were expecting and and I understand like you know like you said we're not of course are talking or about this specific violence but we need to understand that that was something that everybody were knew that it's going to happen and that for me you know the school was a ray of light for the refugees this school basically contains two hundred and fifty students are the school operates from the morning until the evening and the morning they're giving like Moore told our people work to to study all language and in the afternoon hours are around one hundred and eighty children refugee children are coming to school and studying in their own language some of them are studying Arabic some of them studying in Farsi some of them are studying in friend told by the refugees prism yes and taught by fellow refugees this school was built originally by the youth movement official match that you're Israeli youth movements with a child the Israeli Arab youth movement out three years ago so it was originally built like into classes they went out they decided that they need to do something as rally youngsters decided that they need to do something they went out to Lesbos and they originally wanted to stay there for three months R. three months we came out a year and a year became three years now they had I think they had they had nine classes everything every single thing is totally burned down and I have to tell you that this rips my heart because I don't understand how if this was a deliberate action I don't understand how someone can actually come and hurt and burned a community center and a school for children you know and the last two years aha the the unfortunate situation is that what you're seeing that of course the Europeans are Europe and and and the international community is basically standing aside with everything that is happening with the refugee crisis I don't want to even start talking about the Arab countries and the Arab leadership because the Arab countries didn't open their doors to the refugees coming from Syria what is happening lately with us out with that the last one varmints that we saw on the news and everything that is happening in Syria will make this crisis even bigger and you seen the Arab countries and the Arab leadership standing aside for the people who are in the school it is very important for them and that's for the teachers and that the that the older daughter the people were managing the school it's very important for them to pass the message that they stand without solidarity with the people of Greece because if we are like you said this is not the problem of Greece this is not the problem of of of of Europe but at the end of the day we need to find a solution to these people worse sitting and and don't have anything and waiting for something to happen and you know saying the few years ago I think it was two years ago that the E. U. R. declared that the refugee crisis and it and it's not if you are walking in the refugee camp Maury in Lesbos you don't see human beings you see shadows of human beings you see people that don't have hope you see people that don't have anything people that are literally living in the garbage and I think yes not forgive me the passion that you feel on the subject comes through loud and clear and we were talking about the politics of it in in some detail earlier on the program I very much appreciate you coming on and telling us the story of that school and I'm sorry it's in the circumstances of these Arab Israeli journalist and Lucy a harsh on events on Lesbos as they've emerged in the last twelve hours or

Chapman University removes posters of 'The Birth of a Nation'
"In the history of cinema. The birth of a nation is considered a landmark of technical achievement and d w Griffith's nineteen fifteen movie with its heroic depiction of the Ku Klux Klan is also an enduring symbol of racism of vintage poster and an advertising flyer from the birth of a nation have been on display inside the dodge film school at Chapman university in Orange County. But now following student protests and a faculty vote Chapman has removed the birth of a nation artifacts. Joe replicable is KPCC's Orange County reporter, and she was on the Chapman campus today. She joins us on the line now. So Joe, let's talk first about the posters. What do they look like? And where were they located shares of the main one is a pretty big poster about three feet high advertising. The film to be shown at the Ford theater in Baltimore. It's a really plane post or just the name of the film nothing else. And the next to it is a framed newspaper advertisement about the. Film. Also from that time, and I should say I've only seen photos of both because they were taking down almost immediately following the faculty vote yesterday afternoon. So now, there's just a blank space on the wall. And the spot is kind of in the back up back. Hallway leads to a production studio, it seemed like not a very prominent part of the building. But students told me that they walked by there all the time and that perspective students walked by there on tours of the building because you talk a little bit about the effort to get the posters taken down where did it begin? And what were the students concerns? It's something that some students have been asking for for a long time. I talked to one student J Stayton. He's a junior. He's one of just a handful of black students studying film production at Chapman. And he told me he I e mailed faculty in December twenty seventeen to express his discomfort with the posters. This a reminder that this thing brought back the KKK is or monitor that the white people in the us black phase is just for me. It just reminds me of all those. Races atmosphere that I'm trying to anyway, ignore or pivot. My mindset of so I can pursue my education and not feel insecure. And he said he had a conversation with some faculty members at the time about it. But ultimately nothing was done. And then, you know, the calls have been getting louder from more students in recent years upset about the posters, and then finally a protest was held last week with at least one hundred and fifty students according to the panther. That's the student newspaper and school leaders decided to hold a faculty vote on the matter. And yesterday, the faculty voted to take the posters down Stayton the student that we heard from said he's thrilled that they were finally taken down and really just happy that the student community rallied around the cause. And ultimately that faculty supported them. You said that this protest dates back to 2017, what has the response been from the university, and how has their response evolved. Well, the president wrote an op Ed recently and said he understood the concern. Turns with the film itself. But he talked about the film's placed in history, and some of the techniques that were very of on guard at the time that were used and felt like it was something that needed to be part of visual history. And he basically said that he he wasn't going to take them down. And then the president decided that if the faculty voted to take them down. He would follow the faculties recommendations, and they had a couple of options is that right, right? So the options were to take it down or to keep it up, but add a plaque putting it into context and explaining why it was on the wall why they had decided to keep it up. There are talk with a Chapman faculty member who joined the protest has name is Ron McCain's he's a professor and a TV writer, and this is why he told us he wanted to join the students realize what the case were hurting the students, you know, and all you know, one color either. Right and. One of two or three laps off of the members and dodge college. And so I know that I'm one of fairy few. So my voice is extremely important spry, especially if I I know navigate academia, so what is the demographic makeup of Chapman. It's predominantly white at the most recent freshman class is just over fifty percent. White black students make up just one point six percent of that class, and it's a small school. So that's just thirty people. You talked to some other students today what were their reactions to the decisions to remove the artwork? Winston student told me he understood why it was up in the first place because it was such a monumental work in film history. But he said he's still glad it was taken down. It was a good decision. Another woman told me that it was about time. She had seen potential students of color and their families lingering in front of the poster during tours and could tell that it was something that made them very uncomfortable and possibly even discouraged some of them from choosing chap. Men oranges predominantly white dodges, very white. And so, you know, we're trying to diversify and it's gonna be hard to do that. If people come in. That's the first thing they see because it's a little discouraging. And that was Hannah Freeman she's a senior and television writing and production. Finally, here's what professor McCann's told us about what it means to him that the birth of a nation artifacts have been removed. It says that speaking that is change batteries. And I think what this shows is that the administration to simply listen to what the students haven't you say in recognize that there was an issue. And there was a d for change. Right. And the fact that changed did happen shows that there's there's ample opportunity hopefully future. And so I feel hopeful you know, that this is this is one step towards lease if university at that, you know, students pillar will be probably attend, but the but also demonstrated love for their school. I know the art were just came down. But it has. There been any talk of what if anything might replace them on the walls. A couple of women told me the rumor is that a poster of Casablanca is going to replace it. But as far as I know that's just a rumor, I'm gonna make another suggestion. I think they should put up a poster for spike Lee's, black
One thing you should never say when invited out by a friend
"Skull, right? Because sometimes you may not want to do something unless you're with a particular crowd. And I have my own thoughts about that. Like do you ever? Did you ever like invite something someone to someone and then they go well who's going? Oh my God. That's the worst of that room someone. So that's something you should not say to someone because they might feel bad. They might feel. I'm not enough. Oh, yeah. I'm just thinking about now to say that so. Yeah. Never just say like well who's going to be there? Right. Like, okay. Well, you're not good enough. So let's. If the other people can motivate may, right? Yeah. No don't say that don't say that. Right. So I mean, you know, but in this situation at sounds like this person, either would be going alone. Or maybe there's one other person. I'm not I'm not quite sure. But it just sounds like, oh, they're trying to get their friend to join them and say that oh they'd be happy to happier to go with they came as well. Yeah. Yeah. This is good. I mean, this is a good skill super in bri-. Yeah. So you want to express that feeling because it could be flattering to that person. Right. So use it as a point of connection. Yeah. Absolutely. And use your tone of voice here to express. This is not just about the words. Also about the way you say it, right? Right. Right. Right. So I mean, our listener ask could you say I'd be encouraged to go. What do you think? I mean, you could like the person would understand you. But it sounds a little formal and not quite right. Yeah. Yeah. There are some better things Carlo to that you could use here. We're going to show you them. Yeah. I mean, I think that this feeling of having your mood changes something important to be able to explain right? You'd be feeling this, and then you'd be feeling this. So so what cabbie Larry can you use? Right. So we're going to talk about that. Yes. So definitely the would write using would. So I would or I'd right, right. And expressing the feeling right? Exactly. So yeah, I think the first step is expressing how you're feeling. And then the second one is talking about how your mind could be changed. Right. So like about how your mind could be changed for that. Second step. Yeah. I would I could I might be blank to go. Right. All kinds of hypotheticals or conditionals loving, right? Right. Right. Exactly. So what's one thing that you could say Lindsay, and if and if you wouldn't say something on this list like, yeah. Pointed out where I will. All right. So what do you think? So first of all ready. Last week sales open for our Tokyo, power English immersion, weekend, and sponsor limited to only fifty students. So if you didn't get your ticket yet, and you live in Japan go and grab it now at all ears English dot com forward slash Tokyo. We'll get to meet us. Well, you bring your English to a new level with our immersion method with native speakers in just one weekend all ears English dot com forward slash Tokyo. Okay. So would I'd be motivated. Right. So something like, I'm not feeling up to going alone. But if you were with me I'd be motivated to go or I'd be more motivated to go. I yeah. I mean, I would say that. I think I might use this one in particular when it comes to like the gym. Maybe I was just thinking your soul. Right. I just had the same thought. Yeah. This is less about like going like an energy like entertainment. It's more about like something that you should do for your body or your mind. But you know, you need the motivation because you don't have it by yourself. Right. It's like, oh, I would like to be sitting on my couch watching TV and eating brownies. But if you're going to go to the gym, I'll be motivated to go. I'd be motivated. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So yeah. I bees that one specifically for like, fitness and things that require self-discipline. Right. Right. Right up like in this next example. So we have would be driven to and be driven to go. Yeah. Or something. Yeah. I love this word driven. Right. So to describe a person. Oh, like the person don't entrepreneur, they're very driven. I don't know if I would use it here in a conversation with a friend is mono, Michelle. What do you think? I mean, it came into my mind. So it must have happened from somewhere. But. I agree. I think like more than motivated one might be good. But like I mean, you could say like, oh, I don't like hot yoga that much. But if you're going I'd be driven to join you or something like that. Yeah. I mean, I don't think it's like wrong or anything. But maybe the first one is a little bit more natural. Yeah. To me, it just sounds a little bit more formal like driven. But but this is a great word. I feel like we could do an episode on outer drive. Ibe like motivated people who's in there. Yeah. That would be maybe we could
