"Cheryl corley, NPR news, Madison, Wisconsin. It took ten years for wildlife conservationists, Delia Owens to write the novel where the crawdads sing. Now that it's been adapted to a movie, her own mysterious story has resurfaced. Zambian authorities want to question her about the 1995 murder of a poacher there. Hear about the case later today on all things considered. Tune in by telling your smart speaker to play NPR or your member station by name. You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. Vinton is a town of about 5000 in east central Iowa halfway between Cedar Rapids and Waterloo. The public library there spit this past week's shuttered after its latest director of the third over the past two years left amid ongoing fights over what books are on display, which means vinton is another battlefield in America's library wars. Jeanette McMahon served as director of the vent in public library for more than a year until resigning last July and she joins us now from dewitt Iowa. Thank you for being with us. Thank you for having me. What books were the subjects of complaints under your tenure? And what were people complaining about when it came to the books? There were 5 books that we had complaints. They were not formal complaints and never went through our reconsideration process. One of them was Joey by Jill Biden. Superheroes, by the Kamala Harris book, sometimes people march, which is a wonderful children's book, about different ways people will march whether it's marching in a band or marching down the street for an idea. What was the complaint about those sorts of books? That we were not being fair to president Trump because we didn't have books that were equal. Which there weren't children's books necessarily written. And that in the marching book, there was a lack of marches such as pro life. When you were picking out books, were you making political choices and making certain ones prominent? Did that come into your mind? Come on, Harris spoke at Witten public library, that book was donated to the library. The Joey by Jill Biden was a patron request. And we displayed all our new books. In a lot of small towns, gossip and conjecture and the side conversations just kind of take over. And at that point, you become unable to really do your job well. You know, people start either, they don't use the library or materials, get checked out, not return. And so was that the issue with some of these books that people didn't like were people checking them out and not returning. They had checked out and then there's a fine line between are they not returning them for a reason or are they just not returning their books because they haven't returned the books yet? When I work on collection development, I look at what are our patrons looking for, what are what I consider quote holes in my collection that we're lacking and okay, maybe we don't have a high population of African Americans that doesn't mean we don't buy books that have African American characters. Part of our job as librarians is to literally bring in things you would not look for yourself or don't even know that's out there. Whether you want to choose to check it out, that is entirely up to you. But do I want to recognize LBGTQ plus communities? Absolutely. If we don't have materials, we need some. The library of Vincent is due to reopen tomorrow with limited hours as a town looks for a new director. You're at another library and do what Iowa. That's another small town. Do you think the same thing that happened to you invent him could happen and dewitt? Yes. You know, you think small town libraries, oh, they don't get the controversy of New York or the big cities. Well, actually, I think the controversies, it's in small towns. I think even worse, simply because you know everyone and small towns and change is very hard. And when change comes, these things happen. That's genetic McMahon, former director of the vinton public library and Vincent Iowa. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. This is NPR news.

"The protests outside the home of justice Kavanaugh continue. And while their peaceful protests, it's a little disturbing this idea that the left is able to show up at your house. You would think that there would be proper venues for these protests, but you wouldn't be able to come and harass someone where they live. And so you have this alarming scene of these sort of police officers with helmets and batons, and then all these protesters milling about them and shouting slogans and signs and so on. But that's not the worst of it. The worst of it is what the left is doing to these pregnancy centers. The pro life pregnancy centers around the country now life news, which is a pro life site, has documented 40 plus incidents of violence and vandalism directed at pro life individuals and organizations ever since the leak of the draft Supreme Court's decision. By the way, where is the leaker? How is it the case that you have this investigation and somehow you can't find the leaker who gave this information to the media? What? No. Let's look at these incidents because they are quite disturbing. Houston, early May, holy rosary Catholic Church vandalized on the pastor, faster Harris says most definitely it's a result of the leak that came out last week. So Catholic target but on by the pro abortion activists in early May, manassas, Virginia, vandals defaced a pro life pregnancy resource center, writing graffiti all over the building, abortion is a right, you people are liars, a whole bunch of incidents in Texas, early May Portland, Oregon, southeast Portland, pregnancy center. You can see the windows smashed as a photo here. There's the F word, debris everywhere. May 3rd, Frederick Maryland, the care net pregnancy center defaced with spray painted pro abortion messages that say pro abortion, go to PP, Planned Parenthood instead, abortion is a right. This is not a real clinic, and forced motherhood, and then one more example out of the 40, then I'll give you may 8th, Madison, Wisconsin. I left this so called anarchist group, attacks the Wisconsin family action office. They've tossed two molotov cocktails into the office after breaking windows, and then they set the office on fire.

"KT McFarland's with me today. I can't been waiting for this one for a while. Got to run into her cpac with the crazy part about it is through all of our travels. We have been on TV together multiple times on interviews, but never in the same place. It seems like at the same time, especially with the last few years going. And so it was so good to be in the same room, not on the same convention center, but there with you in Orlando. It is great to have you on the podcast today. Well, I agree. I mean, I feel like I really know you well because I've been on television with you. We've talked to each other, but we've never actually met in person. And so here we are yet again, not in person, but it's good to be with you. It is. But it works out, great. Well, you know, one of the things is and especially the way life goes these days is we all have our backgrounds and where we come from. And people see us and make judgments, basically, you know, we're on TV or we're on the interviews, one podcast that was kind of like, one of the things I love to do with this podcast has been great to be able to do is sort of people see how we became, you know, you or how you became me and it gives people that background so that when they see you, they say, hey, I know where she came from. I know what was going on. So tell us a little bit about how you became you in a lot of sense. Gosh, that's so nice. Well, I started out as a freshman in college in 1969. I was from Madison, Wisconsin from a working class family, but I got a scholarship to go to George Washington University. But I needed a job. So I was a really fast typist. And through a series of accidents, got a job as the nighttime secretary in The White House situation, freshman in college. And I was working for Henry Kissinger in the Nixon administration. So I went to college during the day, majored in Chinese Chinese studies, wrote my bicycle, went to The White House situation room every afternoon, and then typed the first draft from what was then called the president's daily brief and is still called the president's daily brief. And that was the classified items briefing items that would be on the president of the United States is desk in the Oval Office every morning at 7 a.m.. So I typed the rough draft at night, somebody finished it off in the morning. And I did that all through college, through part of graduate school. And all of a sudden I got promoted after chain. And I was Henry Kissinger's research assistant. At a very young age, and so saw firsthand to some of the most extraordinary periods of American foreign policy. It was the opening to China, the end of the Vietnam War, the Paris peace accords. The detente with the Soviet Union, Middle East peace negotiations. So as a very young person in my late teens, early 20s, was exposed to people and events.

Let's let's just do. Let's let's rephrase there. Let's talk about nfc's for marketing purposes. I want you to finish. Your ideas don't talk. And then i'll follow up. I'll throw an ideology to for sure. So i think first and foremost like an nf. T is very much so it can be a billboard when preach brother point when you see like an nfc artists. That really gets it. They've defined style and like you see that in the wild and you're like oh dang that's people oh dang that's a pack or pack whatever his name or dang like. This looks like something that three music would collect or totally something crypto. Eight eight eight would bid exhaust. He does the eight eight eight bid. Prices like exactly people who get it are branding their their creations or their bids and like you just you see it and you get it and you think of them and i think very much in the same vein. That's that's like when i when. I think of tease for marketing. I think of figuring out a way where you can create a style or format in your nfc where people see it. And they think of your product or you'd think of their brand and i think especially when you talk about like lazy dot com. You mentioned earlier as we collect more and more. We're going to want to show him off like there's no reason to just have them and sit on them and so i think people are going to build brands around what they collect to right. Yeah sure i'm the We'll think v france right like thinking about the brand that you build if you collect ephron it means that you're going say gary conferences. Yeah for sure and for the people that don't know gary v has a nfc project is called e. friends but it's an access nfc so not only recalled drawing but there's different perks and things. But i think every refrained allows you to go to a gary v conference for a set period of time. So that's like how you get in the door so you don't buy tickets per se. It's funny we keep talking about enough and ticketing crichton sir ticket you buy via fran and then you can get in the building. You know what i'm saying. I wonder what company that buys like. One hundred fucking take each like what are what are what are those tickets go. That's a great question. Yeah i'll be like thinking about like this company. Have to have one hundred wallets or do they just buy a hundred hundred aviv friends while it and then like like like. If you're at the conference how do you show that you have a v framed like you just get a corporate past and we all have the same wallet address. Potentially i mean. That's that's a real question.

Well, so I was, um, I was when I was living in Madison, Wisconsin, always complaining to my roommate about a certain kind of story that I hate And it's always like characters in a room drinking like a lukewarm beverage from a Styrofoam cup, and I called them like warm soda stories and My roommate was like you should write one. Just get this out of your system, like right, one of these stories, and you should call it filthy animals like the home alone thing has, like, I don't even know what I would write that story about. It goes right, one of those like stories where a guy is in love with his best friend, You know, like what we used to feel when we lived in Alabama, and I thought Okay, I'm going to do and then write this cheesy story. But then, as I started writing it I had so much. Uh um And so, Yeah, I cannot take credit for the story or the title. My roommate gave me all those ideas. He was a really great room. Wow. Well, I mean, it is wonderful time so glad to hear how fun it was because As intense as the short stories are in filthy animals that they're I don't know There's just something about it. That really moves. And, uh I really appreciated that. I've also learned that you are writing a screenplay adaptation of your novel real life, and I was wondering if you've written screenplays and and if that writing process has been different for you So I have never in my life written or even wanted to write a screenplay before. Um, this came around when we were in discussion with my film and TV agent like thinking about selling the the film rights. I was talking to a friend of mine who Who does a lot of TV and film rating and I was like, I don't know if I want to write it and goes well. If you think that you might ever want to. You should do this because this is like the thing. The one thing you're most qualified to adapt just as a way of getting involved in that industry. And so you know, I said yes, that I would try and it is quite different. It's Completely different form in a completely different, You know, there are completely different set of constraints and and it's been a really humbling education in so many ways. Oh, so oh, Oh, just in terms of like having to learn the vocabulary. I mean that having to learn the narrative form is the way that storytelling works. I mean, it's just quite different, like when you're writing a thing that someone's going to maybe say on a screen one day like there's just a whole different kind of pressure. You know, when you're when you're writing dialogue for a novel, I mean, there isn't this priest opposition that anyone's ever gonna have to say those words or do any of the Maybe crunchy things. You have to write for them to do in a book, So it's It's just a whole different set of pressure and anxiety I have about the narrative techniques. Well, this listener writes you have an entry in sweater weather called the scam ary of representation. Could you explain? The scam. Mm. Yeah. So I think I was trying to unpack a lot of my complicated feelings around the way that publishing the way that publishing right now seems sat on. Increasing its diversity and the sort of increasing focus on representation as like an ethic in and of itself, and it just feels increasingly like In publishing a system that many people recognize as being like, imperfect and flawed and morally dubious. At times, I just feel like without doing a reappraisal of the values already at work in that system. When you just say that I'm going to represent you within that system. It's just like turning people inter currency to be used by a potentially corrupt enterprise. And I just think that I just think that in some ways it also subordinates. The art and the artist Street to some sort of outwardly visible set of tokens that can be exchanged on the marketplace. And so it feels like a very dubious and slippery enterprise. And it's you know, susceptible to the same Fassel machinery that all capitalism is and so to me, it just feels increasingly like a scam when we focus so much on Representation without an attendant reappraisal of the the underlying value systems. Yes, we almost sort of allow that to stand in for itself. To some extent, Do you almost feel like though You know, Writers of color are are almost That's almost like a forced part of the art like we're almost forced into it without even our complicity. Um, when we do work or write about people that it almost feels like a prerequisite Yeah. I mean, I think well, very clear Example of this recently is that I was working on like a short story to be published in a magazine and The editor. The sort of assuming like, probably white editor was like Is it okay if we capitalize the being black as per our style guide, and it was just like, Well, I'm a black writer, and I didn't capitalise it yet. You want to capitalize it because that is your style guide because some other black people told you that's what you should do. I don't wonder. You know, It's like the idea that like we can sort of take art. Written and created by people of color and then sort of run it through some quote, unquote style guide so that it will be sort of presentable to a mass audience like it seems. I just feel like that. Not that it's an inherently bad thing. But it feels like the fact that we don't stop to question that impulse and the fact that we don't stop to sort of kick the tires on it a little.

"Today. Madison, Wisconsin, the state capital. Our democracy itself. Was attacked. I think my phone. He was my phone along the weekend that Was audio of the beating. Vicious attack. Outside the People's House, the very seat of democracy in Wisconsin on an elected representative, state Senator Tim Carpenter was assaulted by an insurrectionist mob. Which took down the very symbol of Wisconsin progressivism the Lady forward statue. It showed how racist and anti black it was by taking down the statue of Hans Christian Hoeg, a prominent abolitionists who literally died fighting against the Confederates. Yes, this Confederate mob was hell, bet. On undoing democracy. Itself. Oh, wait. No, that's not at all how this was covered. Well, I said it was one year ago today, June 23rd into the 24th 2020. Where a violent mob descended on the state's capital. Smashed windows up and down Water Street or Excuse me. ST. ST. Attacked Tim Carpenter. I mean, this was a vicious beating. This was not just a couple of little love taps here. He was viciously beaten. He was attacked in a way he was He was terrified in a way that AOC could only pretend to be on January 6th. He was Just I did. I mean, my heart went out to him, You know, obviously, we disagree on politics. But Man Nobody deserves. Why? Because he dared to take a picture of the angry mob that was ripping down statues. They assaulted him. And remember, what was it that blue haired hose beast? Who is criminally charged. It was It was like a rhino charging at this poor guy. I mean, what? What did he get between the mama Baron? Her grizzly. Truthfully. Bears Are there good looking animals? They're strong. They're this This woman sort of looked like It was like a half drawn. Pokemon is the best way I could describe this woman. It's just like sort of there. Not really. This happened one year ago today. Do you remember the name healthy A. Bernstein. I'll bet you don't Because you're not meant to Bernstein. Claimed that a group of racist fret boys Doused her with lighter fluid or some sort of Kerosene or or something. And through a lighter at her. Into her car, badly burning her. Was horrible. It was yet another example of white supremacist culture in the United States. Even in a liberal bastion like Madison, Wisconsin, the whites are so evil. That they would attack this poor woman like this. The story never actually made any sense. Bernsteins Burns didn't look like they came from a lighter at all. And how exactly would this group of frat boys be able to throw a lighter and have it stay lit into a car? That Wait a second. Wait a second. You're telling me she didn't go to the er right away. She went home to sleep it off. Something's not quite making sense here and Could we get a detailed description of the four white suspects while they were white? They were frat boys. They they looked like stereotypical white boys healthier. Bernstein made the rounds on local and national media. She even did. An interview on Good Morning America, where she told her story to the entire World. In Madison, Wisconsin. This sort of hate Still has a home. But there was no camera footage. Surveillance cameras all over Madison, including at the intersection where this attack took place, But the cameras didn't show anything. All of a sudden. Healthy A Bernstein disappeared. We tried to contact her. Everyone in the media tried to contact her until it became clear that healthy of Bernstein had made the whole thing up. Federal investigators and the Madison Police Department closed the investigation into the attack on October 7th. And determined that no such hate crime existed. But they stopped short of saying she made the whole thing up. They just said there was no evidence They couldn't find they tried. There was no evidence. One year ago today. Healthy A Bernstein Defamed an entire city an entire state. With one of the most noxious lies Wisconsin has ever seen. She made it all up. Why? Well, the prevailing thinking is that the birds that were on her face looked an awful lot like chemical burns and just a few blocks later, or a few blocks away at about the same time, maybe a couple of minutes earlier. Then the alleged attack took place. There were people using chemical accelerants. To start fires at Madison's safety building. Philadelphia. Bernstein have possibly been involved in that. The burn marks on her face clearly came from somewhere. But no one was ever interested in figuring out where In other words, the powers that be in Madison. And the federal government operating in Madison. Had no interest in figuring out what exactly happened to Alpha Bernstein. Nor did they have any interest. And going after her for expending so many law enforcement resources to investigate what was always a very obvious lie. The media. Just sort of let it go. We don't want to look like we're picking on this poor woman. That poor woman was rather obviously lying about what happened to her. She filed a false police report. That's a crime. She lied to investigators. That's a crime, and she may have been involved in a far more serious Crime. But nobody seems interested. The greatest hate crime hoax in.

Michael Mann is distinguished Professor What most Felix science at Penn State with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the earth and environmental system in Dude in 2019. He received the title pies for environmental achievement, often called the Nobel Prize for the Environment. He is the author of five books and in 2020. He was elected to the U. S National Academy off Sciences. And Hello, Mike as I mentioned to you before we started. This is the fifth time You a guest on I'll show it seems like we've talked to you every time you wrote a book and glad to have you talk about this new book. Yeah. The title. The new climate war way. Why did you choose the word war? And what do you mean by that? Yeah, thanks. Stu is great to be back with you and This. I didn't really come up with this terminology, but I've used it because I think That it is an apt metaphor when we look at the effort over several decades, the really cynical effort when would have to say by fossil fuel interests and their front groups on those promoting their interests, their efforts to cloud the public understanding Of the problem to deny the science of climate change to attack the science and to attack the scientists. Fossil fuel interests have engaged in a decades long effort to literally under mine. Public understanding when it comes to the existential threat posed by human caused climate change, because it represents I know a threat to their bottom line. When we If we recognize that, you know, we need to move on. We need to transition away from the burning of fossil fuels to renewable energy to de carbonized our civilization will. Obviously it's going to hurt the bottom line for the fossil fuel interests who continue to make billions of dollars profits every year. We remain addicted to fossil fuels. And so they've fought tooth and nail to prevent us from moving on. And it is indeed a war. It is full frontal assault on Efforts to actually do something about this experts at this existential threat. Hmm. Well, I think it was your first book, the hockey stick and the climate wars on If I remember correctly, you were talking then about the wars that the fossil fuel hacks were waging. Really? Against all of us. I think this time you are calling for war by us against them is that Well, that's correct. Well, I would say for fighting back against the attacks, what I described in the current book. You know, we've reached the point where the impacts of climate change are no longer subtle. We can see them playing out in real time in the form of unprecedented extreme weather events, unprecedented heat waves, floods, wildfires, super storms, droughts, and so it's very difficulty for the talking heads who advocate for the fossil fuel industry. Forces of inaction or what I call the N activists in the book is very difficult for them to argue that nothing's happening, so they've moved on to a new set of tactics that that's what I call the new climate war moving away from outright denial because it just is incredible anymore, but instead Resorting to an array of insidious tactics that are still Aimed at preventing us from moving on from our addiction to fossil fuels, and those tactics are described in detail in the book, but just sort of very briefly involves dividing us getting us arguing with each other, especially over lifestyle choices, making it sound like the real solution. The climate change is individual lifestyle change because that deflects attention away from the needed systemic solutions regulation subsidies for renewable energy price on carbon all of these things that would hurt the bottom line when it comes to the fossil fuel industry, And so they don't want the conversation to be about the need for policy change in systemic change, they would rather have his finger pointing at each other. Arguing with each other. It's a divide and conquer way of preventing us from speaking with a unified voice demanding change they have actually promoted doom is, um and despair. Ironically, if they can convince us that it's too late to do anything about the problem, then you know why do anything, it potentially leaves us down the same path of inaction as outright denial. And then finally, delay tactics that, um, you know, propose. Alternative solutions that aren't real solutions like Geo engineering, massively interfering with our global environment in a desperate effort to somehow offset the effect of global warming, the effect of carbon pollution or advocating for carbon capture and sequestration, to the extent that we continue to burn fossil fuels. But we implement this technology that really can't even be scaled up in in a matter of decades. It would be very difficult to really implement that technology, but they hold that out there, as if well, we can continue to burn fossil fuels because eventually will be able to scrub that carbon out of back out of the atmosphere. These are and then finally, the language, the discourse of resilience and adaptation. As if We just have to figure out how to cope with the impacts rather than stop the unseen lot of climate change impacts arising from our continued Pollution with carbon Mm hmm. More warning. They wanted the O. B. We have a liking it here. What's going on with e can hear you. Yeah. Um, so we're wanna will want to get back to this? But I want before that to ask you to read the first paragraph in the book in your, um introduction. Andre, then tell us who wrote it originally. Yeah. So the There's the paragraph very beginning of the introduction of the book. There is general scientific agreement that the most likely manner in which my mankind is influencing the global climate is through carbon dioxide released from the burning of fossil fuels their some potentially catastrophic events that might be considered. Rainfall might get heavier in some regions and other places might turn to desert. Some countries will have their agricultural output reduced or destroyed. Man has a time window of 5 to 10 years before the need for hard decisions. Regarding changes in energy strategies might become critical. Once effects are measurable, they might not be reversible. So, um, is I go on to say in the book If you thought that those might be the words of Al Gore from the 19 nineties, you would be wrong because it's actually from the early 19 eighties. And those are the words of Exxon Mobil, their own.

How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives
"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.
Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry
We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

Talking Biotech Podcast
Onion Domestication and Improvement
"We're going to talk about domestication again of a unique vegetable and when you ask people what their favorite vegetable is very few people say the onion however it's hard to think of vegetable or plant item for that matter. That has a more ubiquitous place in our culinary universe. It's you know the powders. The the the the basic parts of onion are important flavor in many different things that we consume and i think about just about everything i cook starts chopping up and onion so i wanted to pursue. Where did it come from. How did we get it. Where is it going. And so we're speaking with dr mike heavy. He's a he works with the. Usda agricultural research service in madison wisconsin and also as a faculty member in a department of horticulture. So welcome to the podcast. dr heavy. thank you so much. This is really cool. I think i actually got to see you. Give a talk once. And i can't remember where it where it was but i think what did you ever give talk in savannah georgia at the national onion association meeting. Yes i did about four five years ago. We had a joint meeting between the national onion association and then all the research community. I think we met there. Yeah that's i seem to remember that. Yeah i think. I may have asked you at the time too. If you'd be a guest on the podcast and just takes time so. Let's talk about onions. Like i mentioned before it has such an important culinary value. Where did it come from end. Do natural populations still exist. So the onion like many of our grain and vegetable and fruit crops was domesticated in central asia specifically iran. Turkmenistan afghanistan that area and it spread from there around the world and is now consumed in produced on every continent except in artika. There are still the most closely related. Wild specie is called alien babalola by and that grows naturally still in the kopech. Dr region which forms the border between northern iran and southern turkmenistan. And so the wild relatives still exists. There probably was in prehistory was more widely distributed but We can still find alien. Below by inet area oval ovalles. That was a discovery or at least a characterization by vavilov the species is named after him. Allie taxonomy in the former soviet union named this wild species after nikolai. About by batalov. Okay i never remember seeing so much about his his expeditions into places like iran. Turkmenistan you that he was Know prolific in that area. So but that makes sense to when you talk about the species of wild onion. I know that even here in florida there are things that they haul a florida. Wild onion and in chicago is named by from indigenous peoples term for stinky onion. So are these related to the major culinary onions or are these some kind of distant relative first of all the alliens. The genus of onion is distributed around the northern hemisphere and here in north america. Most albums have a seven chromosomes whereas onion and garlic chai have a basic chromosome number of eight. So they're distant relatives and we can't cross them with onion but they do have unique flavors in many places there still collected in consumed but really are very distantly related to the onion that we know. Have there been any efforts that you're aware of to domesticate those regional varieties that are grown with the seven chromosome ones that are growing around. Say the native united states. Yes you do find him showing up. Sometimes farmers markets different species out west in the california in the rockies. There are numerous albums that can be collected in consumed but to my knowledge. There's no effort to really Breed them in and develop some unique flavors or production characteristics from them so the primarily just collected so when you talk about the actual album that was used that is the forefather of the modern onion. Who was really the first to domesticate that they would have been probably nomadic tribes in central asia most of the central asian republics of the former soviet union onion and many of its wild relatives naturally exist and probably these people's started collecting him in eating them initially and ultimately i feel Asexually propagated them. Much like you would. Shall it today break apart. The basal plate planet and then i think probably seed production at conscious breeding occurred later but it would have been nomadic tribes in central asia tens of thousands of years ago they mostly use it for food flavoring or were there other potential uses of onion now. That's an interesting question that has been quite a topic of debate. A couple of things may have played an important role in the domestication of onion. One of them is that Because it was an editorial form is a perennial grows every year. It sprouts very early in the spring and many of your listeners may grow chives and the green leaves of tribes. Come out very early in while alley. That's true as well. It's not a good source of vitamin c. But it does have vitamin cs. I think you could think about a nomadic tribes taking advantage of that early green growth of the leaves in the spring as a source of vitamin c and potentially other vitamins and flavorings but the taste is also has to have an effect. I think and. I wonder if maybe wasn't important to mask off. Flavors maybe for some ranson meets or different foods that may not have it have an off taste and that maybe the early domesticated is used that straw salt pungency flavor compounds in the album's to their benefit.

The Grayer Layers of Female Sobriety
"How would you describe your relationship status with alcohol? Our friends. Yeah Yeah we're friends. We see each other maybe two three times a week not nearly nearly as much as we used to and now that I'm thirty six. That's kind of where I like to keep it. What about you? I would describe it as an ex that I'm on good terms with you. Know I don't like we can have a good time and we see each other but too much time together leads to anxiety hangovers. Yeah like my mental health. Really just cannot not handle heavy drinking anymore and this question about your relationship. Status with alcohol is one. We recently pose to unladylike listeners. There's to help us make sense of something that we'd started noticing both in our own friends circles and very much so on social media. Yeah it seems like more. Women are openly taking time outs from drinking or breaking up with it for good and while not drinking might seem like a straightforward choice voice on the outside for most sober ladies we heard from. It's complicated my name is Aida. I'm calling from Madison Wisconsin and and I have been sober for about a year now and it is hard and your work kind of mandates happy hours rush and you still have to go and drink with your co workers and when you tell people that you don't drink you're kinda looked at like you're crazy person. I'd is Right Carolina as you and I know from personal experience booze can feel hard to escape like it is the social lubricant of adulthood. Yeah like in my early twenties. I was working the midnight right shift at a newspaper and that meant bar hopping after every shift. And if I had wanted to skip out on it like a people would have looked at me weird just like IDA said NBA. I basically would not have had a social life. Yeah this is also reminding me of when I got on anti anxiety medication a few years back and and initially I just had zero taste for alcohol and also wanted to give my brain a chance to adjust to the MEDS and when I hung out with friends one weekend and they clocked that I was only drinking lacroix. I still remember like the truly concerned looks that I got okay. So you weren't drinking at the time and we're technically sober but sobriety can mean different things to different people right. They're the folks who don't drink as a matter of personal taste or faith or the folks who can't drink for medical and or medicated reasons. Then you've got the not drinking right now hours Aka the sober curious these folks. I tend to be loud proud and in it as part of a wellness lifestyle and then of course there are the sober folks who might identify as sober alcoholics or in recovery free and for them. Not Drinking isn't so much a choice. As it is a necessity to stay alive. Get healthy and improve their quality of life. My name name is Jordan and I'm an alcoholic. That's how they make you do it at meetings for someone like me. The recent instagram trend of sobriety is both helpful and infuriating. Part of. What's infuriating is that I'm a person who has had a hell of a time getting sober and when somebody's struggling with addiction trench the Internet for actual help and instead finds the thirteen most helpful sobriety ditches? You need to you follow right now. It's not ideal now. Who knows? Maybe those thirteen sobriety bitches are. Somebody's role model. Maybe but it's understandable that unladylike Jordan might feel like their hard-fought recovery is being co opted. So today we're not here to write a one-size-fits-all alcohol prescription and instead we're spending this episode exploring the grayer layers and spotlighting some major themes around gender drinking that we heard from y'all the unladylike lake listeners. It's all to find out. How do we choose our no boost choices and what happens in women? Sober up SA- Kristen here's the thing. It's totally normal for women to drink Shocker but lady like rules still apply to how were expected to do it. I typically something like drink modestly less than men and preferably really not beer and well proper ladies aren't supposed to get wasted. A sobering up might be more unladylike. It implies that you can't hit or don't WanNa follow those rules at all. Here's Listener Barbara I- lewd. Try January. I mean I would see this pop up in my facebook feed and I would be so angry and annoyed and not giving up the rare times and I get a chance to sit down and have a drink and ron but the truth is that I was terrified. Not being able to stop on on the way home to have a drink and that was not something that I was interested in examining what I can say now is I n three or so far and then I'm not going to drink today Carolina. I totally empathize with. Barbara's initial bristling at dry January. Like years back when it first started becoming a thing. It also put me on the defensive like oh well. Aren't you so perfect with. You're not drinking for a month and loving it. Yeah Yeah One thing that rang loud and clear in the voicemails and letters we got from sober ladies is how not drinking means dealing with other people's opinions like assuming assuming you're on a high horse or you're bound to be a buzzkill exactly so take for instance listener Kayla from Minnesota growing up. Her parents didn't and drink because they just weren't into the taste and being drunk people as always make you uncomfortable. Although I don't judge anyone else for drinking it's still inhibited. My ability ability to make friends in college and beyond so now at twenty eight years old. I do have an occasional drink in a social situation because it's easier to simply you give into social pressures rather than fight them but I do wish that those pressures didn't exist those pressures can be super invasive to Carolina. It reminds it's me of how some people interpret baby bums or visible tattoos as invitations. Chew Tut like it seems like folks feel especially entitled title to know why a woman is sober or not drinking. It blew my mind how much that came up all the messages we got for this episode. Like y'all get grilled arild. If you pass up a cocktail and admit I have been that griller caroline. And in retrospect like it is fucked up that there have been times I did not WANNA take no no for an answer because our reasons for not drinking are often really personal things you should have to disclose the people on demand. Yeah Yeah for instance. We heard from sexual assault survivors. Who prefer to not drink or be around drunk people because it's triggering or from other folks who have chronic illnesses or allergies and alcohol? Alcohol just doesn't agree with them. The social side eyeing of sobriety doesn't always stop when you leave the bar either sometimes caroline. The claptrap is coming from inside inside the house. A listener named T.. Who grew up in a heavy drinking Irish family gradually lost interest in booze and she shared the extreme lengths? She went to due to get her family to lay off her about it so I stopped drinking in twenty fourteen and that time my therapist suggested that one of the strategies. How did he actually used was to tell people that I wondered because I had heart condition? 'cause I am on medication for something else and people were just assume soon that when they saw me taking that I would take on that so that was what I did that time and I even told my family my friends everybody to this day they also think that I have a heart condition. That's why I don't drink in. Caroline faking a heart condition. Still doesn't stop people from prying they. Sometimes we'll say oh well you can have just one well. We're going to say if I really did have some kind of serious condition and here you are telling Australia. Oh No it's fine. I know more than your doctor. I know more than you farthest I know more than you about your body truly wild and this gets me thinking though. Kristen is this kind of scrutiny. Different four women okay. This is something that I've also been thinking about in my personal life ever since I got married because there are times when I don't really want to drink but I go ahead and order a cocktail anyway because caroline I know the question that's coming if I don't uh-huh
Ruby on Rails Podcast
Rails Camp USA with Bobbilee Hartman
"Bobby Lee Hardman is a developer advocate. Swear she's been in development for the past five years president more widely known as the founder of rails Camp West the longstanding unplug retreat for Web developers in the United States. Bobby Lee recently moved from the wind. West Seattle bobbly. I wrote rails instructors for vote bootcamp call block. It's so great to talk to you once again. Bobbly yeah you to me. I'm excited. Thanks thanks for joining me. Bobby Lee what is your develop origin story okay. So it's Kinda crazy so I didn't study my first year of college was photography then. I transferred transferred after a year. In did You Know Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing so then after college I started working at a small startup it up and we are building a mobile APP. Emmy outsource all of our development work to you know like a small dead shot and I was kind of you. Know doing Little bit of designed for them and a little bit of like preparing to do marketing. Because the apple doesn't live yet so as always at that deb shops office and the guys is in. There could kind of tell that I was really interested in what they're doing. I thought they were like Superman News. Just so cool to see at the time. And so they gave me a book to read L. H. Meal on a Schmaltzy assess and I read it really quickly and I was just like super into it and excited that I can learn it and I just was like Oh my God. This isn't that difficult you no. I think this might be something I might be interested in so then probably like a week after I finished that book there is a technique Chicago conference and I was living in Madison Wisconsin at the time so it wasn't that far so I went with a friend and one of the sessions that was going on there was called Anyone learn to code and so I was like oh for sure have to go to the session. They're going to like teach me all kinds of stuff you know like maybe there's some magic thing going on that's not not you know. Engineering is not that complicated. Whatever some drop and drag thing like photoshop or something and totally not that but they kind of explained to me about this the program? There's this new concept of doing learning one specific language in eleven weeks and so they were the first school to do it and even before Dev bootcamp when I was like. Oh this sounds interesting. You know maybe I'll just figure out if I don't like it. I mean if I don't like it that'll be able to communicate with our engineers that were working with you know win win regardless bliss so you know but you know. I wasn't quite sure so when I went back to Madison to think about it and then a week after that. This all happened really quickly Week after that Madison Ruby. I was in town which is a smaller conference and the day before it was a rail bridge in rails was the language they were going to teach in that course in Chicago so I was interested so went to this one day workshop in rails bridges a one day workshop that you teach you kind of the basics of what rails is. It's it's pretty probably made for people that no other languages but I was like. Oh Whatever I. I don't know how to use a computer. Besides doing a little bit of photoshop stuff and now each to Mounsey assess the book so I went to this thing and I learned you know pretty you know lake. It was still very confusing. I mean it's very high level But it was you know really I just got me really interested in thinking more about going to school and then at the end of the workshop they were like is anyone in the Roma photographer. You know it can be casual. I don't have to be super professional national anything but we just want someone to take some photos of the Madison Ruby Conference over the next few days so I was like. Oh I can do that. You know I'm not you know. Amazing at doing internal shots are inside indoors shots. But you know they're like whatever yeah sounds good and so it was jam who I'm still friends with. And so yeah. I shot the whole conference when I met all these people in the rails community Ruby community that I'm still friends with today and One of the instructors that school in Chicago was there so he kinda convince me a few convince me to just go ahead and take the program in Chicago and just see what would happen. I love that story because it's essentially a series of you saying yes to opportunities soon. be allowing up. Yes so yes so then. Pretty much after that Yeah I went to school in. Chicago's two months or whatever and after that out I was like I should move back to Minneapolis because my first role could be you know an internship it can be unpaid. I'm not sure and I'm from Minneapolis. So but yes. I got my first paid salary and everything junior position after that And that felt kind of like my first real job because my startup job fell a little. You know just kind like a starter thing before right up right out of college so see then my career just kind of kept going after that I got my next suffer engineering role at intuit do it in San Diego and then if you other things Until I started working at square. So yes so that leads us where you are first. Developer advocate on the show. How can you tell me what that role entails okay so a developer evangelist or advocate developer? Relations are all interchangeable and there are a little bit different at every company and and at Square. We kind of are less focused on going to events a lot and traveling a lot which is what a lot of a lot of evangelists as you as you may have met some of of them. That's a lot of what they're doing is creating You know talks conferences going to conferences and blog posts. So we do you know. We do a lot of talks conferences. We also encourage a lot of our engineers to speak at conferences and to teach them about what are the opportunities are out there for them to get Get out into the community deep and then we work on the blog newsletter. and Um yeah this new YouTube channel which we've created a lot of tutorials and short videos intro videos videos about you know maybe one topic that you'll see on our docks or something and so. We're still coding. Because recreating these orioles and creating these workshops stuff on on our videos and for blog posts. Well and let's see what else is the main thing is that you know Every developer over ventures as a little bit different to and what. They're evangelizing. So what they're sharing to their community of developers so we focused on sharing and spreading the word about our SDK's API's his and about this new marketplaces kind of like an APP store for evangelists mean for developers so a lot of people know of square for our hardware. But they don't know about us as much for some of the you know adding a payment form. It's your website or your mobile APP so a lot of that is what kind of were getting the word out what. I'm trying to get the word out. Maybe you know on twitter or you know just being part of the community going to meet ups telling people kind of what we're up to and you know writing different blog posts and then And then another cool thing that we're up to is this marketplace's APP store if you will where we're connecting our smelling of sellers that we have so people that have readers tres in the hardware at their coffee shop or for their store the farmer's market We're kind of trying to make you know we're trying to work on. Adding developers offers into the scene there. So there's some developers who might WanNa make us custom tool for a seller so we're kind of connecting them in a marketplace where they can make money on people and building APPs for sellers dollars. So that's kind of this new thing that were Working on as well so yes so it's kind of different. You're always kind of like you know you're either spreading the word about what S. gave an API or were also teaching Our own internal teams. You know what are the developer saying slack or the questions coming through recently any. How can we change the docs to be a little bit? More user friendly What are some things that developers want that we aren't building? What are what are they saying about our current offering offering our current? SEK's in waters. You know yeah so. We're kind of like the voice of you know we can be help helpful in a few different ways but those are kind of all the things that would entail maybe something in evangelist evangelist would do not sounds like a lot. So what is the day in the life where you are you still coating yes so we're so coning. There's only three of us on my team that do mainly vandalism or advocacy and we so-called because we're creating blog post with some content in there so something where reteaching engineer engineer how to us when we're SDK's for example or introducing something that's new In an anarchist that were building for the Youtube Channel. We or you know coating up examples making small APPS Yeah kind of live coding on all of those videos so live examples of APPs Yes US oh. We're so th coating data days changes. Recently I've been working on looking back at all of our old blog posts making sure we don't have a lot of four fours and a lot of redirects going into some of our new content are new versions of Sek's or we've seen new API's that come out and there's new stuff coming out of the time so making sure blogs are up to date Working on a script for a video is something I do a lot now and mainly. That's I would say. Most of my time goes towards making scripts or working with other engineers on our team to produce a script gripped for something Yeah and like events we do some events for select engine like we'll have a group of people come and tell us how their experience with their API he is so we'll have you know events like that and stuff

September Full Moon 2019: When is the Harvest Moon this year? What time is the Moon?
"Start September thirteenth. the most. and so the year happens tonight the harvest moon it's the full moon that's closest to the autumnal equinox which is coming up on September twenty third the actual time of the full moon is around midnight that's the moment the moon lines up opposite the sun so it'll be fully illuminated by the sun's rays. the harvest moon occurs around the end of the growing season for much of the northern hemisphere so it's time to harvest the crops in the harvest moon name but another reason for the name is that the light of the full moon helps farmers bring in Somers bounty. at this time of year the full moon rises only twenty or twenty five minutes later each night at mid to high northern latitudes north about Madison Wisconsin or Billings Montana in fact from some latitudes the moon can actually rise a bit earlier for several evenings in a row this gives farmers some extralite extending the harvest time well into the night. over the course of a year though the moon
Woolly Mammoth cells 28,000 years-old reactivated by science
"It have. We not learned anything from Jurassic Park. A team of Japanese scientist is attempting to bring back the long extinct, you guessed it, Ernie woolly mammoth the animal has been extinct for nearly four thousand years. I thought it was longer than that. But the scientists have emerged to extract the cells of a twenty eight thousand year old mammoth and transport them into a mouse, the cells show signs of life. We're gonna have a woolly mouse. Here we go. The cells were taken from a mammoth that scientists call Yuka would have been seven at the time of her death. Okay. Her carcass was in pretty good shape. And they found it in Siberia back in two thousand ten now. You may be asking Ernie rightly so how soon until we start seeing these hairy beasts in our woods. It's only going to be a matter of time before we see him over in Waco. Oh, sure, they say could be quite a while. While the cells took to the mouse eggs, the cells divide to create anything like a fetus. But it did prove that science. It did prove to scientists that they could reawaken cells isn't a Willie ma'am at the size of an elephant speaker is even bigger than the elephant much planting this what did they think how big do? They think the uterus of the mouse is gonna ho- how big is this thing gonna have to know the science behind this. But it will be fascinated. The I want to be there for the discussion of where do we put them? Do. We put them exactly where they were. Yeah. We put them in Madison Wisconsin or wherever the heck large populations of them were found dead or do we just like, well, we got to put them in Montana and do they have to be in cold climates? Do they have to the plane in Texas? Well, Waco, actually does have a giant mammoth? Sanctuary study dig whatever you wanna call it. But that was four thousand years ago. I imagine the weather was much colder. No, no, no science on that has been settled. I don't know the science of the weather twenty eight thousand four thousand years ago. Neither does anyone else. Unfortunately, they settled the science. So if so we have to unleash and Canada, I candidate deal with it. I would suggest this that if you're going to rebuild the woolly mammoth, which are you in on. I know I think you are weak. You shouldn't be I think, hey, you had your day it came and went you're gone. Didn't is man to blame for them not being around. And you know, no man is not to blame Jesus Jesus. That's right. You had your shot you blew it. You sat around drinking beer watching TV all day. You got fat all of you had heart attacks, you're gone. It's done. So I don't want these things coming back. But if you're gonna bring them back, I would like you to modify the genes to where we smaller version. Yeah, they're the size lapdog. Yeah. They could be the size of a lapdog, and they're domesticated because I'll be happy to have a woolly mammoth at the house a little horns. Yeah. Tiny little horns, it's really adorable or you trick them out to be like those Ali fonts Lord of the rings that have long horn. I like that. Yeah. Something something like that since we're really tricky since we're playing the part of Jesus here. Let's go ahead. And trick these suckers up when they come back or just here's a better idea. Let's cross him. So when they come back, they have mink coats, look, really, really snazzy, nightlife. Yeah. Really soft. You can sleep around with them. Chinchilla? Yeah. Exactly beautiful. Now. I don't like the idea of see I'm all about it. Are you? I when I die. I'm figuring unless something kills mega tell about ninety. Okay. I think by ninety we'll have it figured out. And if I could see a willy mammoth for die man, that'd be great. But what if a kick ass, but here's the problem if they can do that. Then eventually they can bring you back and then you'll see the woolly mammoth in life number two. Nobody's gonna wanna do that. No guy. They don't bring back. The key had his shot. Kind of like how you talk about it. You had your shot you blew it. Let's

Wisconsin gov.-elect won't rule out suing over bills that would limit power
"Has happened before in many a legislature Democrats. In fact, I've done this in the past two Republican governors in lane duck sessions and other states joining me now from the state capital of Madison, Wisconsin, incoming democratic governor Tony got elect Devers. Welcome to meet the presser. Running check. How are you today? I'm okay. Let me start with this. You had said you were going to personally lobby governor Scott Walker the outgoing governor whom you defeated to veto this legislation. How those talks gone have you met with them. I communicated with governor Walker over the telephone a few days ago and laid out my physician that vetoing the legislation was going to be an important thing. Not only for you to make sure that our our what happened last November the vote of the people Wisconsin is actually upheld. And we're putting people in front of politics, but also just bad legislation. And I made that made that pitch and was noncommittal, I know publicly he's said another arenas savvy plans to sign most or all of it. So I'm not particular courage to at this point in time. But it's it's around Scott Walker's legacy. He he has the opportunity to change this and actually validate the will of the people that voted on November six did you negotiate with them? Did you say, you know, what look I know x is really important to you. I get that. But what's with y and z here was there. A why did you go to? And say, look, I I really think this part is just crazy please veto that if you want to keep this. I get it. No, I I talked about a few areas that are really important that actually Republican business leaders have talked about that that would take away power imply implicate and make make economic development much more difficult in the state of Wisconsin. But the entire thing is a mess. It's a hot mess. I believe that. He should be towed. The entire package impact at least three or four the pieces that are in there. Now, he has vetoed previously. And so it makes no sense to me. He's he's been a longtime public servant. And and I and he he he has a legacy here. So we're hopeful that he will veto the whole thing. I'm curious after you were elected and quickly. We heard word that the Republican speaker and the Republican majority leader in the legislature. There were considering these bills. Did you reach out to them personally before the bills started going? And if you did what was that conversation like? Well, I I met with Robert Vaas this speaker much before those words that rumor came down the pike. I haven't had a chance to talk immediate was last minute is one of these. Here's a rumor. And here's here's the bills that have been worked on for several months. But know, Scott, you didn't won this election, which got Walker at one this election. We wouldn't be sitting here talking to you today. Is there any party, you know, one of the things that the speaker said he goes, well and hindsight, maybe we gave the governor too much power take the partisan hat off a minute. All right. I know that that perhaps many people read that comet tongue in cheek. But do you believe he's right? Well, there are things in that Bill that really had nothing to do with giving Scott Walker anything. So I don't agree with that. We have balanced power in the state of Wisconsin legislature in both sides are Republican. I'm a democrat. The attorney general's have democrat. No, I view this as completely different than the, Robin. Boy, you said, and that is that we are trying to invalidate the of the people people Wisconsin voted for because they know that I was for good schools and good transportation system and good healthcare. They didn't they didn't. They didn't elect me to fight over. Administrative powers in the state of Wisconsin vis-a-vis, the Republican majority. Now, I think this this this gets us off to bad start. I I think it's a mistake. But we we'll continue working to get the people Wisconsin to convince Scott Walker to think about his legacy and make sure that he vetos language democratic congresswoman Glenmore said the following the legislatures who injured near this coup their actions amount to a smash and grab hijacking of the voters. Will you think coups the right word here? Well, that's that's always seems seems strong. But the fact of the matter is. As I just said if Walker had won this election, and he did not I did we wouldn't be sitting here. Talking about this today. We wouldn't we wouldn't be talking. It's Scott Walker wouldn't be sitting here talking about. Jeez. They're they're trying to they're trying to balance the power here. So no, I think is directly related to the to a win by a democrat in that be me. And we need we need to have this. We need to have this vetoed. One of their rationale has been well governor like abras margins all came from two cities, Madison and Milwaukee. We have to represent the rest of the state. What do you say to that charge? And more importantly, you want a very narrow election. How do you? How do you reach across this divided state at this point. Like, it would have been a lot easier without this legislation. I'll tell you that I have reached my present job is state superintendent that's a statewide elected position. And I've reached across island all all all numbers of issue. So that's part of my DNA. I'm an educator. So I I always try to find common ground, and I'll continue to do that going forward. This just makes it more difficult. But I wanted me election anyway, you slice it. I want me election and actually narrowed some of the. The votes out state, and I've won lots of those counties out state in the past. I governor I will be the governor of the state. It was represent doesn't veto this legislation. Do you plan to sue you really think you have standards? All all all issues are on the table. I I'm not making any promises one way or the other. But we're looking at all issues all options at the table. I need to stand up for the people Wisconsin. There's two point six million people that voted in this last election, and they expect me to do that. So I'm going to we're going to pursue this governor elect, Tony abors democrat from Wisconsin. Thanks for coming on sharing your views. Good luck. When you take when he actually takes us. All right. When we come back. The one issue
