Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"Unless Congress takes action, millions of Americans are likely to be evicted from their homes. Berry soon, and this problem is more than just a crisis. This is a crisis that the American people are dealing with, but there's also a crisis when it comes to Congress and how utterly? Our lawmakers are when it comes to providing the economic relief that Americans desperately need so there have been numerous stories published about the number of Americans who are likely to be addicted, but these numbers keep ballooning so for instance last week, the Federal Moratorium on Evictions and also on federally backed mortgages expired, and so there are some states that have implemented their own addiction. Moratoriums but you have to keep in mind. Mind that some states have not done so and we still have tens of millions of Americans who are jobless who lost their healthcare coverage as a result of being laid off in the middle of this pandemic, and then you also have Republicans who refuse to extend the unemployment benefits that were provided under the cares act. That was the additional six hundred dollars a week. That Americans would receive if they filed for unemployment. Unfortunately it seems like there are some members of democratic leadership who were going along with the lies and deceptions that are being message to the American people. So before we get to that I want to share some statistics with you. The Urban Institute estimated. That provisions covered nearly thirty percent of the country's rental units and I'm talking about the Be Moratorium on evictions by one estimate. Some forty million. Americans, could be. During the public health crisis, and of course, this is the most unsurprising part about all of this minority. Groups are the most. Vulnerable when it comes to fiction, so people of Color, according to CNBC are especially vulnerable, while most while almost half of white tenants say they're highly confident. They can continue to pay their rent. Just twenty six percent about african-american tenants could say the same around half. Hispanic tenants said they have little to no confidence. They'll be able to stay in their homes. And if you look at data, state-by-state to see how states are impacted by this. You Look at Louisiana, for instance, fifty percent of ten say that they can no longer afford their rent. A fifty one percent who say that they can't afford their rent in Florida fifty eight percent, in Tennessee fifty nine percent in West Virginia and again Benjamin love for you to jump in the frustration. Here is the utter lack of leadership, not just in in the federal government with the trump administration, but also with Congress right what we're seeing here is just it's. It's shocking, but it's not surprising race. It's almost like the natural combination of how are leadership has been leading the direction. They've been going. They are really pushing the people as far as they possibly can I. Think you are Frankin Clippers stain on. Twitter, said that they're trying to find the very least that they could possibly do without causing a riot, but you know when these numbers start hitting the fan right when people actually are put out of their homes with nowhere to go, and then if they if they're lucky enough to get in a homeless shelter night, we do not have the capacity to house. All of these people in the homeless shelters across this country, but even in that scenario they would then be exposing their families to covid nineteen. This is not something that's but the fact that they're playing chicken and taking it. All the way to the wire is is disgusting. Absolutely, so you have the moratorium on fictions on one hand, and then you also have the issue of the unemployment benefits which are set to expire on the last day of July, and so of course, when you hear the rhetoric coming from the Senate Gop, and also from the White, house, there's this live that keeps getting repeated over and over again about how well these unemployment benefits are just too high, and as a result are refusing to go back to work. In fact, one of the Republican senators. Who was her pet? This nonsense was Ted Cruz over the weekend. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. And then I wanNA. Compare what he said to democratic. Leadership Listen. In terms of the unemployment benefits do you object to providing any kind or any amount of federal boosts unemployment at this point, because not everyone is choosing to be out of work. The policy that Nancy Pelosi Democrats are pushing adds an additional six hundred dollars a week of federal money to unemployment. We have unemployment system system. Down, to seventy percent. Problem is for sixty eight percent of people receiving it right now. They are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job and I'll tell you. I've spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas. We're trying to reopen and they're calling. Their waiters and waitresses are other busboys, and they won't come back, and of course they won't come back is the federal government is paying in some instances twice as much money to stay home, but APP may, and to a lesser amount. At look at what we ought to focus on instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. What's a recovery bill or coverage? Bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America. WHO's working? That actually gets people back to work.

I have a nine year old son. So for me, it just hit me different, you know. He wanted to find a way to get guns out of the hands of kids. Has trump is laying around and I know for me that Trump has saved me. So he posted on social media and said to all the youth of New Orleans, bring me a gun and I'll give you a trumpet. No questions asked. I wanted to build a relationship on trust with the kids, so that They wouldn't have to worry about getting into trouble. The musician called the city's mayor and got the police to agree that they would take the guns from him without asking for any details. And I say this in I have a different connection with these kids because I grew up like them. I know what they're going through. I know the type of environment that they're in and they aren't bad. Kids just dealt into bad circumstances. They are trying and wants him to do other things, but it's nothing for them to do. So far, Alan has taken in four guns and given away for trumpets. The first gun that I collected was from a girl like a little girl. And it was the only grand I was fully loaded and I just was like, man like this is a look. I would never suspect that she will have this. And she was the most excited about getting it gave with a trumpet. He has the information. If you want to get lessons, you could reach out to one of these teachers. They'll be willing to probably saved the situation. Yeah, I'd probably say the situation. Since he ran out of instruments. Alan started an online fundraiser. He has raised more than $10,000 for music supplies, and people have also donated their own instruments. That trumpet was the first thing I showed me. Oh, I really don't have to be here. It's really a whole other world out there. And Alan is hoping that this instrument will have a similar impact for kids in New Orleans today, so if I can create those little opportunities for one of two or three of them, they can actually bring that back. So their neighborhood and they were all over. That's the voice of trumpeter Shemar Allen, who is trying to reduce gun violence in his community in New Orleans.

The coronavirus is mutating, making it harder to stop the spread
"Hey. So, as Jim Garrity points out a study released last month by the scripts that research institute concluded that the strains of the virus spreading so quickly in Europe in the U. S have a mutated spike protein that makes him about 10 times as infectious as the strain initially identified Asia So now you're comparing apples to oranges. When you say why isn't this thing spreading in Hong Kong or Taiwan, same way that it sprayed in the United States or Europe? The name exactly the same virus. As it turns out, it seems like us is having a tougher time controlling the spread of Corona virus in Asian countries didn't winter and early spring. That's partially because this version of the virus is tougher to stop them spreading. More and more, researchers suggest, says Jim Garrity are contending that Sarah's cover to cover 19 is Airboard, meaning it is not merely being dispersed by the bodily fluids of those who have it, but also floating about in aerosolized form. It's also possible. The virus is not truly Arisa wise, but it's floating in tiny droplets so light and small, they can easily be carried at long distances by air currents. European Center for Disease Prevention and the World Health Organization are now taking the heiress allies possibility seriously, and with good reason and Arisa laws virus would mean most of our current pandemic control policies, like remaining 16 parts are not enough by themselves to prevent contraction of virus. Is Jim Garrity says the scale and complexity of the problem should not be understated. The country enacted unprecedented sweeping lockdowns. They kept most Americans at home at great cost to the economy. The lock down slow the spread. They didn't stop it. Venting more infections is not just a matter of convincing the president to wear a mask consistently or shutting down beaches or subways or requiring quarantines for those who travel between states. At every level of government. The response to the virus has met with mixed success. But it's important to recognise no one is ignoring any simple or easy solutions because the solutions do not exist. That one thing that's true is that the death rate has been dropping fairly dramatically. The CDC currently estimates the death rate between 10.6 point 7% about seven times deadly is the flu. A new study puts between 0.5 point eight. If there are lot of asymptomatic are unconfirmed cases, that means it could be a point to. But as I say, even a point to fatality rate with half of the American population adopting virus Would mean a lot of dead people. So we will see whether there is a big spike here. Maybe not. But the bottom line is that everybody was sort of counting on a vaccine to save us. That is not a strategy either. The fact is that if we rush out of vaccine and it's no good, it's no good. It's also possible that vaccine that is truly effective and mass produced and mass adopted won't happen until mid time next year, even the most optimistic sin areas. So the notion that you're just gonna be able to sort of sit around and wait for good things to happen. Just stay at home and wait for good things to happen. That's not true, either. The reason I'm pointing all of this out is because this is all hard stuff. This is all hard stuff. And looking right now. At a list from World Honors, which compiles data from Johns Hopkins University about covered 19 deaths. And I'm gonna give you the states that have the highest rate of deaths for one million population right now. Okay, This is the list. New Jersey. New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island District of Columbia, Louisiana, Michigan, Illinois. Then Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Mississippi. Indiana, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio, Alabama, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, Florida is all the way down there. California is next unless bed with Florida, South Carolina, Nevada, California. What one thing that you will notice if you're going to talk about strategies that worked 123456789 of top nine states in terms of death per 1,000,000 population are all Democratic governor. Nearly all of them were pretty locked in In New Jersey. New York, Connecticut Master's Sword Island, D C. Louisiana, Michigan. These were all very pro locked in states. Maryland is a Republican governed state. Larry Hogan is the governor over there. And he's been widely praised for his response to the virus. We've had him on the radio show he was for a lock down his state ranks about 10 to 15 slot above Florida in terms of the number of deaths per 1,000,000. Ohio has a higher death per 1,000,000 stat in Florida. It may not stay that way. But the notion that anyone has figured out how to solve this thing is just badly gloomy, like there is no evidence that anyone has come up with the silver bullet on how to deal with covered

The push and pull is being felt nationwide, but especially in some states that are now rethinking the reopening timetables summit arise and Corona. Virus cases one of them. Is Louisiana one of the hardest hit states in the nation? Early on in the pandemic, the state had begun reopening, but is now hitting. Pause on those plans joining me now with more details as reporter Scott Calvert. Scott before we talk about the fight to reopen, let's backtrack to the early days of the pandemic. Louisiana was one of the worst hit states in the country. That's right. Yeah I mean in late, March and early April the number of cases and the death toll in Louisiana, particularly in the new, Orleans area was just enormous, and at one point Louisiana rather was second only to new. New York state in per capita deaths, and there were two parishes which are the equivalent of counties in Louisiana that had the highest number of deaths per capita nationwide, so it was. It was really bad, so we've seen cases. Go down in some of the places that were hit hard early on like new. York New Jersey, but that hasn't been the case in Louisiana. Why not? Well. The governor on Bel Edwards basically says that people have not been good about doing things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing and staying home. They're sick. That sort of thing and it's really interesting because you know in in Louisiana their numbers basically peaked in mid April, and you started seeing this sort of steady decline in hospitalization and things like that and they really thought that things were going to keep getting better and they did. Did until mid June so just a couple of weeks ago, and then it started getting up again, and it's been doing that ever since the last two plus weeks the number of cases has been rising number of hospitalizations are on the upswing, and you know the the governor says it's really really boils down to people, not doing those things like wearing masks and practicing social distancing as the state has started to open up again. No amid arise in cases in several states, especially in the south and western United States. We've seen some areas, rollback or pause plans to reopen, but there is a fight going on in Louisiana over the reopening. What's happening? Right so Louisiana entered phased to in their lexicon back in on June the fifth and what that did is that allowed restaurants and gyms and hair salons, a lot of other businesses to operate at fifty percent capacity, and before that they have been at twenty five percent capacity. So what happened is early last week Governor Edwards said look. I'm going to pause us in phase two for another four weeks rather than go to the next phase of of reopening, and he said that he was doing that because the numbers weren't looking good, because the cases were up and so forth. Forth, and so he thought it prudent to pause where they were to try to drive those numbers down, and the issue is there are a number of Republican lawmakers in the State House of Representatives. Who would like to take away his authority governors to to operate the state of emergency? Because basically what they want to do is to allow local jurisdictions. Perish isn't cities to decide how open or not, the local economies should be, and they make a number of arguments. I mean one is that the hospital system in Louisiana is nowhere near being overwhelmed, which was a very real concern. Concern a couple of months ago, they also point out that you know. There's variations in terms of how badly affected certain parts of the state are, and they also point out that a lot of younger adults are are driving these increases in in case numbers, and that you know for the most part younger people people in their twenties say do pretty well clinically in terms of the virus, Cova Nineteen and that essentially, it's time to to open up the state more than it is. Because a lot of businesses are are really hurting in many ways. It seems like the challenges several. Several states are facing and that we've been talking about for the last several weeks. Balancing Public Health and safety concerns with economic concerns and the challenges, especially for small businesses that aren't able to stay open. That's right and one of the interesting dynamics there in Louisiana is you know. I talked to the head of the Baton Rouge area. Chamber of Commerce and they don't support this effort to override the governor's state of emergency, which is basically a petition drive in the House of Representatives and one of the reasons why they don't is because. They told me that they think that. They're satisfied with the path that they're on the way. The governor is handling this, but one of the real concerns I think is that if the number of cases keeps rising and in the state, decide that needs to take more drastic action. They're worried about restrictions being reimposed and rolling back to say phase one when they could only open at twenty five percent, and so they really don't WanNa. Go backwards and they're. They're not thrilled probably with with being at half capacity, but they'd rather do that. And I think a lot of businesses are able to more or less deal with that environment, rather than than go back to a situation where either they have to have a lower capacity or close altogether. And what is the governor saying about the petition effort? Governor Edwards has said he doesn't think this effort is going to succeed. But he also described it as irresponsible to the point of being asinine, and he thinks it just sends the wrong message to the residents of Louisiana at a time when they really are trying to encourage people to wear mouse, and be socially distant and things like that, and he also says that if that were to succeed in Louisiana would be the only state other than Wisconsin without a statewide order. At this point, the only reason Wisconsin doesn't have one. Is that the State Supreme? Court there overturned the Wisconsin border? Wall, Street Journal reporter Scott Calvert Scott.

Ted Derosa show goes on in horse racing not in front of many live people though some will be in the stands when the Louisiana Derby is conducted on Saturday at fairgrounds and one of those lucky enough to be in attendance. I at the thrill of being one of few. The the rebel grant Legrand's from fairgrounds will have a similar thrill is he and his peers. Gets a witness the Louisiana Derby two hundred points on the road to the Kentucky Derby and that road is extended now until September fifth regardless. This is a win. I'm sure many of the trainers and horseman wanting to grab it's the million dollar twin spires Louisiana Derby grant welcome to the horse racing. Podcast thanks. I appreciate Appreciate you having me and like you said. I'm going to be one of the lucky ones in this unfortunate time and Not only racing but in any sporting events I'M GONNA be one of the lucky ones that get to see the first one hundred point. Prep race I'm looking forward to it. Louisiana Derby is always The highlight of my year. And it's It's not only fund race to watch and see how these horses perform the rest of the year. But it's also Seems to always turn out to be a really good race. Bit No question about it with Sixteen entered fourteen will go assuming only to scratch is certainly a good bending events this year as well plus the added is the race will be NBC. Sports So excited to get that pickup Trying to make lemonade out of Lemons. Obviously don't love the circumstances but The they are what they are. And is someone I'M NOT GONNA lie grant You Know Surreal Eerie. All those adjectives being at a race track with big time racing fans. But certainly something. I'm GonNa be telling my grandkids about what next what an experience and you've had a few days a racing without fans but I'd imagine what they're actually being big steak Saturday. It's GonNa feel more different. Yeah I was That that thought I tried to block that sought out for as long as I could but today kind of doing TV Solo all day today on track. It really It eerie feeling like you said starts to creep in just because you know usually you come into one of those big big weeks and you experience it at Oaklawn but you come into these. Highlights you know the marquee events of the meat and Even though the week of there's the buzz and you know and people are looking forward to it for some reason or another. You have a bigger on track Wednesday crowd. And you know there's there's some lead up to it but today which just me and Three other people in the paddock and I was sitting there doing the pre ratio and almost talking to myself in a sense Other than you know obviously it goes out to simulcast but like you said it's a it's a weird feeling It's certainly strange to be at a track like the fairgrounds. Which usually you know has not only great racing but very fun and Interactive crowd and. It's a little different to be sitting out there In dead silence almost just hearing the horses walked behind you in the paddock. But it is what it is and we're GONNA make lemons out eliminate is that how it goes I think it's lemonade out of Lemons. Although actually lemons lemonade would be more impressive than you think about it. That's why I said it 'cause I was spending you're taking level people. One another SORTA weird wrinkle to this sort of byproduct is You know we're we're prepping for race now. For many of these horses country house actually raised again in the Arkansas Derby last year before Winning the Kentucky Derby but For a lot of these horses this would have been the final star for for the Kentucky Derby Argo imagined. That's in play now With the race being moved to September fifth and Churchill is hinted that they will add some points races. Not sure how many how much they'll be worth it Sarah But you know a a little luster lost from you know a last chance to see these horses before the Derby standpoint And I know as part of your job. In addition to handicapping talking races in the paddock. Do a lot of barn work. A lot of great videos up on twitter and social media would of the the horsemen been saying about this whole situation terms of preparing their horses and thinking about a derby. Now that's six months away. Yeah it's definitely a It's definitely a mixed bag for someone like Brad Cox for example He's you know. Obviously he had Division One winner of the risen star Mister monoploy Who won that race and then came out of the first division of the risen so it with a little bit of an ankle issue so originally right after the risen star when they issue came up. Brad Cox had continued to say that obviously the horses off of the betrayal. But now obviously as you mentioned with the Derby being pushed back a horse like Mr Modern y you know if it is indeed just a minor ankle injury now all of a sudden has has a couple of months to recover and get back into training. And so it's an interesting dynamic. Would you know you have people like that? You have trainers Brad Cox with Mr Manuel. And then you also have you know other guys that Obviously you're aren't thrilled about having the Derby pushed back but at this point it's just opinion because we've I've never seen this before and a lot of these trainers have never seen Something like this before. So everyone kind of has their own opinion whether or not most of it is positive or negative. I'm not sure yet. It seems to be a little bit of mixed emotions Between all of the trainers but for me. I think that you know it is what it is and Business as usual we'll I'd imagine a lot of the sentiment will be distilled in August You know Mr minimally comes back. Game Busters Brattle love it But like His law is awesome through July. And then you know God forbid something doesn't go hundred percent that camp Would definitely a wish for a major be? But you know we're all dealt the same hand so at least it's fair in that regard and finally get to the main event here as we both hinted excellent batting race Really no obvious. Obvious favourite You're GONNA have what fourteen horses There's only the two scratches you do have to. Have you heard anything about how the field might shake out? Do it either of the as have a chance to draw in. I haven't heard a everyone's been playing pretty tight to the chest I haven't heard But to be honest even if these To a draw in. I'm still looking elsewhere. But as far as scratches and to one of the two or both of them drawing. I haven't heard we'll we'll go top to bottom because I don't really see this as any horse not worth talking about some more than others though but it does start down on. The rail and natural at the VIBE is their New Orleans grant but Certainly among my Louisville friends and people I see at Churchill. Downs all the time Hard to find a trainer that would be Not Hard to find a trainer that would be more popular Greg Foley having a Derby Horse and we've seen it to some extent with mark and Brad and Greg seems to be at that level as well. He's local his kids from around here. They're involved as well. A lot of excitement about major fed Down on the rail based on first nets numbers is going to need to find some improvement But he's by go sapper out of a smart strike mayor so no reason to think the distance Can't help him. Yeah and I've I've I interviewed Greg fully after this horse broke his maiden on we back on the first of January and even then Obviously the camp knew that they had something with this horse even on debut but after that easy win Breaking the maiden Greg Foley and his team his kids Travis and they all had high hopes and It seems to becoming to fruition. Here it's good to see that whole crew getting a just an opportunity. I like Travis said at the Louisiana Derby. He said it's nice to be here. It's good to have an opportunity and at least we have a say in this game and to see them win this race that would be A thrill as far as the horse goes like you said that ninety one birds that speech figure last out obviously gonNA need improve on that in but a lot of these horses in here Have something to prove. So at eight to one on the rail. I honestly there's A. There's a bit of a run into that. I turn. I would have liked to see major fed. John Maybe somewhere near the middle of the pack even though there is that long run into the first turn. You still going to have to work out a trip but Who better to work out a trip than Joel? Rosario so major fed on the round at eight to one if you get part of it. I don't see why he couldn't win. This race and Joel was on NATO. The rebel last week and Somehow kept that horse together to repel would seem like a challenge from every horse in that race and they doll was down on the rail as well so the paint and one thing probably should as I mentioned at the top of all this this is a mile and three sixteenths for the first time It does that Affect you do you see that distance is more like amount an acre more classic test for these horses. I think it's more I think it's more of a classic test To be honest with you I think that the mile and three sixteenths We're going to get to see that I mean once you get the distances like these For three year olds It's I mean every yard is going to be a grew. It's a grinding battle. Every extra yard you put onto these racist so To stretch sources out to a mile and three sixteenths I think it was a good move horsemen obviously agree in both the risen star and in this race So it's GonNa be fun to see how it all shakes out going forward. Yeah the Entry Back. Certainly speaking volumes with the full field number two mailman money Connection to Louisiana Derby fans and we'll see the upset winner from last year's Derby on the undercard by my standards. Of course. That's certainly taken a shine to mailman. Money five to one Definitely some buzz off that maiden win at five to two. I actually didn't think that was a terrible race from the ten whole Was Wide had some traffic early. Definitely could see some improvement in store here at a decent price I mean really like to be a broken record or will be by the end of this one of many scenes. It has fat yet. It's tough to not be a broken record in this racist because all of these sources have Tons of upside and so much approve. Mailman money Pretty rough trip in that Rhythm store on the fifteenth of February still finished a nice fourth and talking to Bread Calhoun after the race He mentioned that he he just waiting on this horse to get To mature a little bit he thinks that this horse going forward is going to be a real threat For the three year olds Throughout the summer Whether or not Mailman. Money is ready for this big of a stage yet. It remains to be seen Breakout obviously mentioning that. The trip was pretty rough and had risen store and we can all see it but As far as wind chances. He's definitely a horse that I'm willing to use underneath especially at that morning line..

That's the goal here right that that is the goal so that we can So that we aren't in these kinds of catch twenty two situations so that we don't feel compelled to To make these kinds of decisions going back to the nineteen ninety s and that idea that abortion should be safe legal and rare That rare word where we had prominent politicians recognizing that it wasn't the the first choice that it was it was a last resort that That women that women were Were falling to but that there would be a better solution out there. That's what we need to be working to provide for women so that women do get access to real life affirming choices to holistic care instead of Instead of being told that we're not enough we can't have both we can't do it all and And we got to choose in order to To finish high school or get a bachelor's or whatever it might be Julie. Are you concerned that if the court upholds the Louisiana Law issue here it will be the first step toward overturning roe and tell listeners why you believe that Roach and not be overturned. Role is critical for a few reasons one. It's of course critical to women's ability to make basic decisions about the course of their lives. Which is what the court has recognized. And so that's why it's so important as a practical matter and of course Over sixty percent or about sixty percent of women who obtain an abortion in the United States? Already mother so these are people who are making decisions about what is best for themselves and their families and it's critical that they be able to do that for very practical reasons but row is also critical as part of our Constitution. It is based the right to decide whether to end. A pregnancy is part of our liberty. It's based on the Word Liberty in the fourteenth amendment and the right to liberty has been interpreted by the court for many years since the early nineteen hundreds to include things like the ability to make decisions about child rearing to make decisions about your family life about marriage And in addition liberty has included the right to make decisions about your body and so with the court has said is that of course the right to decide whether to end a pregnancy is protected by our right to liberty because it involves a very personal decision that impacts the course of your life and that's something the court protects liberty at it involves bodily integrity. And that's something the court protects liberty so it is a key constitutional right that makes very good sense in our constitutional structure and it's critical to people's ability to Really make the most basic decisions about the course of their lives and then to go to the first part of your question it would be devastating for people in Louisiana. If this law was upheld again as I said if the law takes fact there will be only one physician left in the state to provide services to people who need abortion which means that. Most people won't be able to access the services at all and those who are will be delayed. We'll have greater costs and one of the things that we know is that laws that restrict access to worship only hurt people's health And so people will be very much harmed and I would like to just make one last point if I may going back to. Some of the Earlier is she's we discussed I. I do think it's very important for people to understand that. This law has nothing to do with women's health and safety. It has nothing to do with emergency transfer agreements. There is a separate law in Louisiana that provides for those and it's not an issue in this case so this is about an admitting privileges requirement that every major medical organization in the United States has said will only hurt women's Health Catherine. What is the significance of this decision for future challenges to restrictions on the right to choose abortion? What are the cases that are coming up in the lower courts that Americans? United is following. And what should our listeners? Be Looking out for next. You know. This is a very important case because it does re examine the whole one's health standard and it questions You know what? What does it take for For a state level protection to be constitutional What What can states do to protect the women in the and the citizens of their states that will meet constitutional muster in situation Involving Abortion In this case No patient has challenged this this admitting privileges role even either in the legislature or in court. And what we're seeing is that. Is that the abortion. Industry is is continuing to try to to strike down these types of protections We're seeing a number of cases in the lower courts the Sixth Circuit Ohio. Ohio Printer on Bach is being argued tomorrow. In fact the prenatal nondiscrimination law passed in Ohio We have an ultrasound case from Indiana parental notice. Notification CASE OUT OF INDIANA A number of of cases in the lower courts that are coming up and so the outcome of this case as it's weighing the benefits and the burdens of this Louisiana Law. That is in fact. Intended to protect women Per The fifth circuit this law leave at least two and probably three abortion facilities opened Louisiana If Jude Medical Services can't can't pay more to to recruit more abortion doctors. They're not constitutionally entitled to their business model for abortion their constitutionally entitled to Women are constitutionally entitled to Access Abortion And what this case reminds us is how very unsettled row and the courts abortion jurisprudence in general is when we have to have a case going up before the court to examine a a very fact based on the ground inquiry relating to The burdens of an abortion law and figuring out. How is this going to impact the women of Louisiana there? There are many cases in the lower courts? The that could be impacted by this By the court's decision of what constitutes an undue burden while another one in fact the The case out of out of Indiana an organization and abortion facility that was denied a license and the seventh circuit ordered Indiana to give it one based on Heller Stat. Cert- spending on that case So again this is. This is a case. That has an opportunity to clarify heller stat. And that is exactly what What Americans need what? Lawmakers need.

"Emergency care so help our listeners. Understand Chief Justice Roberts dissented in a whole women's health but he might not want to overturn it here. If he were to distinguish between the two cases what might he point to? And why might there be women protected by the Louisiana Law? We're not protected by the Texas law so a couple of things again. I think it's important to really set the factual record straight so it's just inaccurate to say that third dozens of women who are transferred in Louisiana every year. That's just not true. The District Court held a trial in this case and actually found that At most there was a transfer once every two years or so again are plenty of protocols in place procedures in place to make sure that those transfers happen appropriately in that women's health is protected. And that's what the District Court found. Abortion is very safe. These laws have nothing to do with protecting women's health and safety. They're about closing down. Access to abortion and every federal district court in the country that has held a trial and one of these laws has found that it does nothing for women's health and safety that's also with the Supreme Court said in Holman's health just a few years ago so again the medical consensus on this could not be more crystal clear they have nothing to do with health and safety and yes. You're absolutely right. The record in this case showed that hope clinic. The plaintiff had transferred about four out of seventy thousand patients over twenty three years and all of those patients received appropriate care. Because there are ready protocols laws in place to make sure that happens And of course abortion is one of the safest outpatient procedures that people can obtain in the country and the laws requiring admitting privileges for abortion providers. Single out those physicians for uniquely burdensome treatment and regulation that isn't applied to other types of physicians. And what this law would do if it took effect would be to leave Louisiana with one clinic and one physician to provide abortions for about ten thousand people per year while doing absolutely nothing to protect women's health and Safety Katherine. I'd like you to channel Chief Justice Roberts as well. He asked Mr Wall arguing for the government. I understand the point. The impact of the law varies from state to state. But why do you look at each state differently? If the benefits of the law. They're not going to change from state to state. What is your answer to to to that question and again distinguishing between this case and the Texas law is the argument here that even if only one woman four women are protected. There's evidence on this record that they might be benefited by this law where there wasn't similar evidence in the Texas case. Certainly I think the benefit overall would be about the same and I'm citing again the guttmacher institute itself which has cited that point three percent of all abortions required direct transfer if there about ten thousand abortions per year in Louisiana then that does result in an a total number of of dozens of women. Compare that to Texas Point Three Percent Times seventy five thousand abortions annually in two thousand fourteen. That would be two hundred. Forty direct transfers. Two hundred. Ten were actually reported that year in Texas so that demonstrates how reliable that Guttmacher Institute Abortion Industry statistic is that it is a reliable statistic and assuming that that that standards are about the same across the spectrum state to state then that would hold that there would be in fact dozens in Louisiana That we would see so. That's the the source of that When it comes to To determining whether whether one of these Emergency transfer agreement laws is constitutional. Then the courts are looking to not only benefit but also the burden and so the courts are looking to a number of different factors including The number of facilities in the state. What what the emergency transfer agreement long might Might do to those facilities How they might Whether whether they would be able to obtain Emergency transfer agreement admitting privileges or not looking to all of these factors determine whether there is in fact an undue burden for women seeking abortion Caused by this lot Julie. What's your response to both of those arguments that the guttmacher institute suggests that there are benefits to the Louisiana Law and that those benefits are not weighed by the burdens imposed on women. Short the Guttmacher. Again let me be very clear and make sure I set the record straight because The facts are really not correct as they've just been presented by the other side Guttmacher Institute has never suggested that this law has benefits. No major medical organization in the United States supports this type of law. They all have said that these laws will only harm women's health so I think it's just really important to be crystal clear about that. The statistics that were cited are just incorrect. That's just not what the statistics are at all And again just to be crystal clear. There was a trial in this case and the District Court found that this law would not make women safer in situations where transfers necessary and the fifth circuit agreed with that that there isn't any evidence whatsoever. The these laws this type of law will make women safer when A transfer is necessary. There are ready separate laws that required transfer agreements that ensure that women. Get the care that they need in the case of a transfer so that really has absolutely nothing to do with this case And second on the burdens point again. This law would actually be more burdensome than the law in Texas. This life it took a fact would leave. Louisiana with one physician at one clinic to provide services for the entire state and so under the undue burden standard. It has no benefits whatsoever and extreme burdens. And it's clearly an undue burden and that's the district court here found Catherine response to that point that in fact Julie argues the Louisiana Law is more than the Texas long because it would leave women with one physician and one clinic certainly In Louisiana we would have no travel time to an abortion facility greater than an hour so each way unlike in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. It's quite a different situation. Where abortion access would still be no more than an hour away whereas in Texas it could be potentially significantly greater than that I would also pointing out that That while Aycock did say in its brief the American College of obstetricians and kind of columnists They wrote admitting privileged mandates or not accepted by the medical legal research community but back in two thousand and four we had over thirty major medical associations including Aycock and the American Medical Association signing a statement of safety principles declaring and part The Physicians Performing Office Space Surgery must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital a transfer agreement with another physician who has admitting privileges at a nearby hospital or maintain an emergency transfer agreement with a nearby hospital. This is something that for many years. The medical community has aligned behind. They have said that when you were performing office based surgery admitting privileges are critical that you need to have these types of emergency transfer agreements. They have come out Against the Louisiana Law but But but again what we're seeing is that there has been a carve out for abortion for this one particular procedure whereas comparatively overall a cog and AMA support emergency transfer agreements Julia response to the argument that the distances are longer in Texas. They are in Louisiana and that some medical associations do support these requirements. Those are both incorrect. There's many people in Louisiana who already travel more than an hour each way to access abortion services and if this law took effect it would leave one physician at one clinic in New Orleans which means that people living in the northern part of the state in baton. Rouge would be traveling not just one hour. They'd be traveling three hundred miles or more than three hundred miles one way. So six hundred miles round trip from the northern part of the state So this would be a severe impact on people seeking abortion services. And that's what the district found. And that's why he found. This law was clearly an undue burden and again. The statement that medical organizations support and admitting privileges requirement is just simply wrong. Catherine does Americans united believe that hello stat should be overturned and that these laws should be upheld without imposing the undue burden test. When it comes to the outcomes in this case I I would say certainly that. The Supreme Court's ruling in whole woman's health was confusing. It was unworkable and it was a complete. Failure is an objective legal standard. The whole reason that June medical services is even being heard by the Supreme Court because the court has not provided clarity on what their decision in whole woman's health means for states. Who Do wish to pass commonsense health and safety standards and so we implored the court to provide clarity and urged the court to allow states to protect the citizens under their jurisdiction bypassing commonsense health and safety protections that said finding Louisiana's law is constitutional. Does not require overturning. Halberstadt while we certainly would would would support and would request clarity. It is entirely possible that the cord could uphold this law without touching Halberstadt. Julie some justices may be inclined to overturn Heller stunt Why do you believe they should not do that? Why was Hello Stat correctly decided? And how big a deal would it be? If the court overrules whole bins health was correctly. Decided for a few reasons and the most important one is that abortion remains a constitutional right in the United States. And if it's not a real right if people can't acce actually access abortion services and so with the court set in home. Health was when you have a law that does absolutely nothing for women's health and it imposes severe burns on abortion it closes down clinics it forces women to travel hundreds of additional miles That laws unconstitutional. Because you cannot restrict constitutional right for no good reason and this case presents exactly the same situation. This is a law that would leave Louisiana with just one physician providing abortion for the entire state for a law that will only harm women's health. That does nothing for women's health at all. And so the case made perfect sense. It was perfectly consistent with what the court said in Casey when it protected the constitutional right to abortion again and said that the right had to have real meaning and the standard that. The court created in Holman's health has proved extremely workable In fact as I mentioned earlier every Federal District Court that has held a trial on this type of law on an admitting privileges law has said it is an undue burden and unconstitutional. And the only reason that the case came to the Supreme Court is because the fifth circuit didn't follow the Supreme Court precedent in Holden's health cavern. We've been privileged on we the people to have your colleague. Clark forsythe as a guest. He is the author of abuse of discretion the Inside Story of Roe v Wade and and he argues that the courts to overturn Roe. V Wade because it was incorrectly decided on constitutional grounds chair with our listeners. Whether or not you believe row is correctly decided on constitutional grounds. And whether you think the court should use this opportunity to overturn it at first of all I would point out that since the time of row for nearly fifty years now there have been many noted legal scholars on both the left. And the right who have strongly stated that rose not correctly decided on constitutional grounds that it was in fact not moored in any kind of of constitutional understanding Even Justice Ginsburg herself has said that that Roe would not be the way that she would go about. advocating for for abortion rights. And the there was a better way to go about it than than using the Roh case Do I believe that Roe v Wade should be overturned absolutely and When you look back at the one thousand nine Hundred Case Planned Parenthood v Casey case and And one of the reasons that the court chose to uphold the core holding of Roe being the reliance interest the idea that That women rely on abortion to To succeed in society Seeming to indicate that we cannot We cannot plan for an incomplete. Our education our careers without access to legalized abortion that. We can't adequately range for our families or our futures without access to legalized abortion. It'd be can't compete on a level playing field with men without access to legalized abortion. It's hard for me to think of any less feminist concept than that because if there is if I'm living in a society that is telling me that I cannot compete on a level playing field with men that I cannot fully engage in any type of education or career that I want to.

"The bags bags on a roll and read. It's real good passport. The camera traveler episode six hundred and seventy one today the amateur traveler talks about poor boys and swamp pop op and swamps crawfish and cajun and mardi gras as we go to lafayette louisiana welcome the amateur traveler. I'm your host chris christensen. Let's talk about lafayette. I like to welcome to the show susan more from solo trips and tips dot com who has come to talk to us about lafayette louisiana susan welcome to the show hi chris thanks for having me your welcome and why are we talking about lafayette louisiana lafayette louisiana is an amazing place. I end whole region a kitty anna. It's a unique cultural experience so the food the music is something you're not gonna get anywhere else in the united yeah well. I think you could expand that. It's it's different from other places in the world as well. You see a katy. Anna and i know we've got a smart audience and so a lot of people probably know what cajun is but when we talk about the cajun's who are we talking about so we're talking about cajun's. It's short for acadians saw the acadians were the french speaking people living in what is now nova scotia and new brunswick and canada and in seventeen fifty fifty five that british expelled them from country. They don't they british or leave. They laugh and after many years was was seventeen fifty five when they were expelled the area they seventeen sixty four is when i a key indians made their way to louisiana landed around a kenyan at lafayette area so agents is just a short acadians excellent and when we say they moved to louisiana louisiana was outside the us at the time so they didn't move to yet another english colony to well. I think was already a french song at that point. Was it spanish or had they bought it said that may was french and spanish after two months. It did change back and forth so i think when they got there it was spanish but i could be entirely wrong and i'll look that up go on but what should we do and we get to new lafayette. You should experience the food and the music and also the outdoors because you've got the by. You've got the incredible fishing an interesting hiking kayaking kinkel kayaking alligators nelson's. Why would i want to do it. It is that i will give you that and we're going to start so we're talking about doing a one week itinerary in lafayette so let's talk about food ooh just starting off in the morning i'm going to be i'm going to talk about if you say planning on staying around the downtown area. Okay i'll give you three restaurants that are recommend command for breakfast and then people can choose rotate each one and then we'll let your i should say to the audience that i almost never do this. We almost never start with food because the conversation i have with guests is well. There are very very few places in this country are really in any country that i think people would go to for the food and and the usual exception i said as a less of course we're talking about new orleans or the cajun area then i think people might go just for the food so this you are falling under through the cajun exception. Okay cool so yeah. I mean for one thing and the soft. He got a southern biscuits and they have fried chicken chicken and crawling bacon. You've got some interesting breakfast choices and all around. The food is just fantastic in the ass pacific civic restaurants. You were gonna recommend them. Yeah go with black cafe and rested rooster. Those are more casual places and also french press press downtown french press being a coffee place. Also i'm guessing from the name yes coffee food all presenting paper in french for instance ah yes indeed and while you're downtown left yet so you get a little coffee and so two one you might as well go visit park. Sanssouci see the big lafayette letters great big letters. They leave out a letter. Why you stand in the middle you create the wi with your arms outstretched instagram among you've got to also see so the park without care if i am translating correctly and you're pronunciations breath unwind it's also see was the name of frederick barbarossa. 's palace outside of berlin is the only reason that i know that phrase. I've been to the palace song souci <hes> which was named as the place that he went when he didn't have a care in the world or at least when he wanted to not okay so i'll see you in lafayette puck sanssouci. That's where they often. Have the music events throw away. Your cares. Enjoy often have the music events. This is where in different festivals are held. You mean yes so downtown years ago. They started downtown. Revitalization project louisiana's known for oil on the oil oil industry was down things get tough economically so one of the things they did this <hes> thirty fifth year. They've been running. A program called downtown ally now. That's that's a park international which is just a short distance from the sea that everything goes to their to. There's a great big stage at park. International shnell are extensive see it has the stages well bandstand. They do events like balk lunch so on fridays in the in the nicer month like spring and fall this south. You know it's very hot in the summer can be quite rain into winter. I was gonna say you say the the nicer month so you're recommending that if we have a choice over when we could go august might not be the best time august he though it would be very steamy now very hot inhuman so i recommend safe from october through may is the best time to go and october november. December is good for christmasy stuff the two and then also like january they have a great film festival cinema on the bayou march have mardi gras and into april the festival festival international make overs yup black pot festival a music festival and a big cook off as well and i swear we'll get back to the agenda that he started. Everything you say reminds me of another question. Black pont being a big black pot of the seafood. Yes with its the various categories you don't have to cook in the south especially like the cast iron cast but no particular cuisine well cajun quiz agent got it okay so you mentioned that they do mardi gras there margaret a little different though as i understand in lafayette than it would be in new orleans. Yes also in lafayette in the city. It's going to be similar that they have the the balls and parades and that type of thing but very family friendly completely commandment that i was thinking different rates yeah absolutely and that in a smaller town so in the small towns it's a lot different the guts it costs jim brown horseback jason chickens whole if an experience and of course music and slim okay excellent and and then one note <hes> and that is the answer to that question we had previously <hes> the area became a french with the treaty that also then finally kicked out the acadians the treaty of paris that ended the seven years war in seventeen sixty three and so yes by the time they were coming there. It was french territory tori which is why they came because they french-speaking people and then you left us at breakfast before i took you on a world wind tour elsewhere in the itinerary there <hes> what are we going to do after breakfast after breakfast downtown you missile checkout just a few of the places that you might want some <hes> local stuff <unk> records the local music or music perish inc and materiel signature music. I think i think zydeco zydeco is well. Yes okay article simone learn more from each other both accordian-based and great beat so they've got a lot of the collector stuff and they have new stuff as well other types of music but a lot of people that go to lafayette or very interested in the jae-jean and zydeco music okay so so from there. Let's go to vermillion bill. Which is a living history museum okay. It's just a short drive like ten fifteen minutes from downtown so it's on the banks of the value for million got seven restored original houses. There's that you can tour around and also these docents costume artisans that provide demonstrations about the crafts that were back in the early settlers would have performed carving weaving and really really very informed so it's great to ask them questions. Don't just go looking around. Ask them questions getting conversation with them and and so a living history museum him early settlers cajun people as what we're representing here. I'm assuming the acadian all african american okay the native americans so this region was the at a campus region so that's what the parish was called before <hes> became louisiana so again that's there were twelve parishes in the territory or means and so after the louisiana purchase with eighteen oh three and the became the state state of louisiana eighteenth well so now it's lafayette parish dictate their sixty four parishes is we should talk about that. The in all the other states there counties the n. louisiana there are parishes and acadian is comprised of twenty two parishes in the southern region. Actually it's a good question. We didn't really put could it on a map yet. We said it was in louisiana. Where are we relative to new orleans. That people know we're further west. I believe asked right so louisiana is shaped like kabuki and you've got the gulf of mexico so from the gulf of mexico north around a hundred miles or show that whole area in south louisiana excluding looting the grading warlords area. That's a key deanna. Okay got an lafayette being the largest of the cities in that area. Yes and some real one hundred twenty five thousand people come to me. It felt feel of a much smaller place so friendly and nca- well and it sounded like you were recommending that we'd when we get here for one week itinerary. We're renting a car because you're gonna take us out to some places where we're not going to be taking the bus out there. Yes exactly although i didn't need a couple flew into lafayette and they just use rideshare uber all around you could do that but if you're gonna do several day trips most of the day trips i'm recommending there within a half an hour or so would still gonna add so. It's best to have a car it just there for a weekend and downtown you could get by without a car easy exit end where we going after vermillion bill. We're going to go back downtown to have some lunch and we're gonna go to johnson's buchanan. I hope i pronounced that correctly <unk> ancient so like smoke workshop so infringe shuttle. Can i would get a plate lunch. They are on jewish medina. They have they specialize in smoke. Meat and barbecue meat oriented. We did excellent you. Gotta try that and you have to try to the plate lunch louisiana in the cell at the i would have to see. I don't know how to pronounce bucaneers bucaneer out because that is not a word that i'm really familiar with. I think you have a accent in well not necessarily for louisiana french and are we ordering anything specifically a johnson's. Are we getting a plate lunch meeting to or supplants interesting. It's going to change up so i would try some boudin. If you've never tried now so let's like a it looks like a sausage biscuit so there's meat in it but with the rice and spices jason kenney always good seasoning here in that we will and some people are afraid of when you say seasoning that you mean hot not necessarily hot though especially with the immune heart but other people are afraid you can always spice it up right and you you ask them and if you want somebody really hot. There'll be an assortment of a saas got it so i'm not going to be at risk that if i if i order something it's going to be especially hot by by a normal palate but if i'm sensitive too hot i just want to mention and they'll they'll point me rice okay. If you're a saas fecal that's going to be hot right. Got it. Okay like pecan. Take got it that makes sense. Let me see what the specialists like. They have things like <hes> bridge cheese with risk it on a biscuit excellent okay and then what are we doing after lunch coach after that we're going to go to we're going to drive out.
"louisiana" Discussed on Happy Hour: A Shot of Conversation
"So yes, some people possibly are now doing Louisiana because they feel guilty that here it is an especially I'm talking like as a miracle. Right. If you as Americans care about diversity, you care about us all being able to live in safe spaces, and it's not simply that you burn church. And I say that. Yes, Notre dominant church, but and I could be wrong. It's not a working church like it's a Taurus destination versus these are the wheezy, Anna churches that are safe havens for people to come in commune with God. Number one, number two. No, go ahead of me of this is for you. Okay. And then and then also to give an unfortunately the history of America. White supremacists has burning churches is a normal act act of their racism in their oppression. Are. Actually, not anyways. And so my issue is because it's a sanctuary and it wasn't getting coverage. I agree with you that I wasn't surprised. But part of me is like f that we have to change the air of we decide what we as this new generation what we decide to care about. And I think there's a shift happening, especially on social media. And I think just with everything that's been going on of late of of being more introspective. And having more layer and texture in depth to what it is that we care about. And what it is that we follow and proclaim and even post on our social media. Well, what I was going to jump in. With is what they're talking about in the live chat. So brianna says I just think it's interesting that the majority of America preaches America first yet, there's a lack of prioritizing American issues, and then chimera said America, first doesn't include black churches. No matter what the reason they're being destroyed. Unfortunately, it's the country live in. But what I was gonna say is in addition to that. It's not just black churches. We literally have mass shootings in this country all the time. But when there's a shooting mass shooting another country. Oh my God. Pray for I'm not gonna say. Pray for this braver this city all overseas, but what is over here? Oh, no. We need our goods say they or we talked about it for literally a couple of hours or they just act like it didn't happen notice the conspiracy out of government like the level that they go to in order to keep their guns when rarely we're not saying your guns away where to saying stricter law that's another conversation. But no, well say. So what now so they raise money so awareness about the black churches, and and and just racial terrorism in America because we always hear about certain things, we always hear about hate crimes, and we see Becky 'em 'cause we can have on on black people whether they walk into their apartment barbecue with swimming pool hanging out at their Parma complex gin shot by the police. So I guess my thing is not. Yes, What's next? But how do we as a society?.
"louisiana" Discussed on In Defense of Plants Podcast
"That. So then we decided enough was enough way. Too long enough. We were gonna go. Find ourselves Advil iris, we'd only see in a couple areas before that would seem of course, the yellow and we saw some blue zigzag, but only one or two in bloom, so we like are we going to be lucky enough? And so we headed out to find it at one of the only public locations, you can see it. Apparently this Irish was discovered on one in one swampy area. That's mostly privately owned. Yes. And so you really can't see it in its natural habitat. But they planted at a place COPA meadow state park in hopes that not only could they bolster the population. Save it from like one stock cast event, wiping out all of them. But also give the public. To actually witness this plant. So it's a it's a three way hybrid of the copper iris iris Fulda, the Dixie iris iris hexagon a- and the zigzag iris iris, bro. Essentially, each one of those irises there in this sub tribe or some sort of lower grouping called the Louisiana irises hexagon. And it's this weird. Subset of irises that are larger in native to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, but they all niche Sigara gate out into slightly different habitat types, some are more inland. Swamps some are open swamps, some are more ditch type, you know, not so wet so they should be reproductively isolated, but in the small little corner of south central Louisiana, apparently enough of them were located within close proximity to another that hybrid started to occur in at some point. There was some back crossing. I don't really know. I don't know mechanics of it. But we ended up with a stable species virus called iris now Sony. I and it looks more like the copper iris than anything else. But it does have traits that are intermediate between all of them. And from what I've been able to read not only does it isolated self habitat wise. So it prefers habitats that are intermediate of all its parent species. So it doesn't occur close to them naturally. It also has a pretty specific relationship with hummingbirds pollinators, although B's will pollinated as well. But once that he showed that when even with the copper iris in the a virus or next door to each other. Even though they both have red flowers once a hummingbird visits in April iris or Abdelilah was flour. It only wants to visit Advil irises after that, that's unfortunate because there's not as many of them. No. But I mean, obviously, they're doing that. If there's an floral. Yeah. Reward there. So in a big population, they become somewhat reproductively isolated sodas of functioning viable species. They produce viable seeds. And so we headed to this park to go hopefully, see them and the goal was to paddle to get out to some of the swamps in see some of it but driving down the road. There is right on the word on this yet right in the ditch other own tall. Beautiful bloom. Yeah. We could see more sort of in the back like way back into the Cyprus, but none of them were blooming. This one was and I read more about it in apparently what ended up happening as that site. Is that so much of that area's been degraded channelize that the hydrology has changed significantly since the original planting? And so now, you don't find him in the interior of the swamp is much. They've actually populated the ditches more because the digits stay wet longer. So it's like in a response to this altered hydrology, which ends up making them easier to see. But apparently it opens up for poaching. So poaching his actually in issue for this plant. Fortunately, seemed like there was a few in the area that had that. And we got more weird looks than like the people were very confused as to what these two weirdos. We're doing on the side of the road taking pictures of plants. We have been a lot. But known was like, oh, hey, look at that iris. No one knew what we were doing while. We did see it right next to a looming Hemmer palace. Also. Yes. The spider lilies. Absolutely gorgeous plants, and.
