"Goals cutting emissions are one side of the coin There's also been so much talk here about how to cope with the existing effects of the warming climate And that's about fairness How to help developing countries that did not cause the problem but are feeling the effects What's the state of play there This draft does call on richer countries to provide more money for that including this idea of loss and damage helping to pay for some of the damages from rising sea levels more intense storms And so how are countries reacting to this latest draft It's been interesting A few hours after the giraffe came out the delegates all gathered for a big plenary session A lot of countries said we think this draft is pretty good We're close but there are still some big sticking points And countries are pushing from all different directions So for instance Saudi Arabia big oil producer did not like the more aggressive targeting of fossil fuels compared to Paris The country's delegate I'm on chassis criticized the accelerated timetables for cutting those greenhouse gas emissions It would rewrite some of the provision of Paris agreement It would emphasize certain parts of Paris agreement at the expense of others Other countries won't even tougher language on fossil fuels Right now the draft calls for phasing out most coal and inefficient fossil fuel subsidies Tina stege from the Marshall Islands which is losing territory as the sea rises one of the language to go even further We should strengthen this language by referring to unabated coal and to all fossil fuel subsidies not only inefficient ones Fossil fuel subsidies are paying for.

"The climate change the climate crisis climate crisis being a problem of the future the one that's happening today And one that is rooted in colonialism And one that talks about the loss and damages the adaptations their reparations to global south countries as well as drastic emission cuts because those topics are also not talked about enough We're always just drastic emission cuts but then no one talks about how the current impacts are already happening and someone the global north those who are responsible for it needs to pay for it Right it's Carlin I think I saw you on YouTube say that in Marshall Islands are responsible for .00 There are a bunch of zeros right 1% of the problem that you're feeling it directly as you think about your hopes and fears for what will come out of Glasgow what are your hopes and your fears My hopes I want to see actual commitment to the Paris agreement back in 2016 Solid initiatives from the global north on sustainability and less usage of fossil fuels I want the global north to take responsibility for what they're doing and admitting to it Yeah exactly as Carlin mentioned there's not even enough admittance to the responsibility It's always solidarity funds I think Boris Johnson and the G 7 meeting said something like oh we have to send them solidarity and give them help for the climate impact that they're experiencing that completely erases the accountability that they have Climate finance isn't help It's reparations They cause this they have to pay They have the climate debt to the global south and to humanity And something that I'm really hoping for just as Carlin mentioned it's really those strong commitments and beyond pledges in the words really seeing action as Carlin mentioned It's so important that we go beyond speaking because we've had so much speaking and it's doing nothing for us I don't think that changes that we need for climate justice will happen with just the summit and with the world leaders alone Because we've already seen what happens when we leave them alone in a room They don't do anything They continue business as usual Things sometimes you get even worse than when you started But I believe and I have so much hope in the people and how there have been already so many steps moving forward And now we just really need to come together and demand for that change And it doesn't end or it doesn't even start at the 6 It's a continuous process of demanding and fighting for climate justice Mitigate is a full-time climate justice activist based in Metro Manila and she's the convener and international spokesperson for youth advocates for climate action Philippines Carlin is a youth climate activist from the Marshall Islands Currently studying for his undergraduate degree in Taiwan Thank you both for coming on climate one.

Operation Crossroads: The Test of Atomic Weapons in Naval Warfare

"World war two had just ended the year before in nineteen forty-five while the war was over. The cold war between the united states and the soviet union was just beginning at this particular moment. The united states had a monopoly on atomic bombs. However it while they had vanished to create and detonate several bombs. There was still a great deal. They didn't know about this weapon. Only three atomic bombs had been detonated at this point. The original trinity test explosion in new mexico. The bomb used over hiroshima and the one used over nagasaki. All three of these were detonated over land. What no one knew was what would happen. If these weapons were used in naval warfare. What would happen to ships which were hit with an atomic blast with they sankar would they flow it. People in the navy had speculations but no one had any proof to this end of the. Us navy initiated operation crossroads. This was to be an a of atomic weapons in naval warfare. The navy search for a location where they could conduct such a test. They needed somewhere remote yet somewhere where they could set up headquarters on land and have observation posts. They eventually settled on a remote coral atoll in the pacific ocean in the marshall islands. The navy move the one hundred sixty seven people who lived on the island to other nearby islands so they could begin testing. They also sailed a fleet of ninety five ships to the atoll which would serve as target ships for the test. These were ships that were set for retirement and the scrap yard and instead would be used for testing they would get newt facilities for over. Forty thousand people were constructed. Who would be there to the tests. They had to build everything from scratch. They build bunkers to observe the test. They built barracks kitchens offices clubs for officers and clubs for enlisted men. It was a massive undertaking and all done far away from prying eyes in the middle of the pacific ocean on july first. The first of these tests took place he would be the fourth atomic bomb ever detonated. In the first above water the test was given the codename able it was dropped from a b twenty nine bomber and exploded approximately five hundred feet above the surface. It caused surprisingly little damage to the ships because the bombs were about a third of a mile or six hundred meters off target the next day. The news of this event spread around the world and everyone became familiar with this remote pacific island which was named

"marshall islands" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind

"T. e. space l. a. p. a. the navigator decay calls. This calls it underwater lightning. It's also described by another navigator as low a tahi or the glory of the seas. And so i wanna read louis. What this is. He's he's just picking up after Has has called it underwater lightning which he thinks is an excellent analogy and lewis writes quote it comprises streaks flashes momentarily glowing plaques of light all well beneath the surface exactly like lightning it flickers and darts and is in constant motion. It occurs a good deal deeper down than common luminescence at anything from a foot or two to more than a fathom all right. Let's already strange. Because i i you know otherwise. I'd never heard of anything like that anymore. Flashes of light from deep under the water almost like lightning but it gets even weirder. Apparently tayla seems to flash from the direction of an island or a reef. You can see it well into the deep sea when you're eighty to a hundred miles away from land but as you approach the island the flashes of light become more and more rare and then they disappear entirely as you get really close. The distance land or from reefs also seems to affect how the light moves their slow flashes of light far out at sea but then about ten to twenty miles from land. It starts to take on a rapid whipping back and forth movement and And it's also generally understood that tayla coming from reefs is slower moving than taylor oppa coming from islands so this was amazing to me because i i'd never heard anything like this before. Yeah yeah this is definitely new to me as well And it is mysterious. Sounding the idea of underwater bioluminescence lightning being some sort of guide again. Like all of these things not the primary guide but some additional tool that you could turn to right Well one thing. I want to note You said it's the taylor operas bioluminescence which it may well might be. But it might be some other kind of luminescence as well it's still There's still some question about what causes it and we'll discuss that more in a minute but But yeah i think it's not a given that it's necessarily bio luminescent like the you know the like the general sort of Ambient glow that you see in the upper area of the sea. That's known to be bioluminescence But it's important that what you say that this is very much a backup method and it's not known to everyone So lewis documented references to it in the navigational lore from to polynesian areas and one micronesian area but there were plenty of other Navigators who didn't seem to know anything about taylor at like they'd never even heard of this concept. Yeah one of the The people the more recent people that we were looking at re concerning this topic is a harvard physicist by the name of john youth and and he points that. Yeah in some cultures you see no mention of it The marshall islands being one that he specifically mentions where they just didn't didn't have the concept and and it's unknown. Exactly why is it an environmental reason like whatever this phenomena is. It's not it wasn't present you know around the marshall islands or islands that were of interest to these navigators or is it a situation where for this particular culture. They found that. This was not a reliable navigational tool and it just wasn't worth keeping around like it's not one you could lean heavily on in always be just kind of like a second or third tier backup anyway. It remains a mystery. Yeah yeah so Some lenders explained that as this backup method of navigation. They could used to steer on dark rainy night..

A Conversation With Kathy Mexted On Australian Women Pilots

"Introduce our guest. Who is well. She's in a different Cycle of the planet We have with us kathy. Mixed at who's A writer photographer and editor of air sport magazine that comes from sport aircraft association australia which is gao organization. Kathy's written for a number of publications but recently she's written a book titled australian. Women pilots has sub subservient amazing true stories of women in the air. Kathy welcome to the airplane gigs. Podcast hang smack. Thanks for having me now. Really astute and longtime listeners may actually remember kathy's name or it might sound a little bit familiar. That's because well she's australia and she has been known to hang out with A few of our australian friends from plane crazy down under grant and steve. So it's really exciting to have kathy. This is a an very interesting very amazing book. And we're going to start off talking with kathy and then come back to the news after that. So let's let's get right into it. A kathy in the book you tell us the story of i believe ten women that all have really fascinating remarkable stories. And we'll talk a little bit about how this came together and in how you found these stories but to give our listeners. An idea of the kinds of stories that we can find in this book. Maybe let's talk a little bit about the first australian woman to fly around the world in a single engine airplane solo. Maybe give us a brief version of gabby story. Thank he Gabby cannot in non nine nine was a single mother of two children. And she had this burning desire to fly around the world for probably some personal reasons. Various reasons Who knows what caused pushes somebody to do these things and she drew back on. A mortgage bought a single engine. Saratoga had kitted out with long range fuel tanks and everything that she could afford and think that she needed borrowed some survival gear and hit it off in august nineteen eighty-nine. She intended to be gone for three days and she came back. Nine thousand nine days later so it was quite a remarkable fates and it's some was a long trip. Yeah yeah and she more or less followed. Amelia earhart erhart's route but as to her motivation. It seems like she was doing it for the the love of flying in. Not for some promotional purpose or to seek notoriety particularly. It seemed like it was kind of a humble flight. She had absolutely no desire for the publicity other than the fact that the publicity provided sponsorship. So that was the only reason she got tangled up with that side of it but became a big thing and because the country was pretty gripped by this housewife fit. Who's at forty is some. Lift the kids with some friends some reliable friends and taken off around the world and She was intrigued by merely earhart actually and she loved immediately hop story. She'd been flying across the pacific with a guy named jim. Hazelton who's well known. Australian aviator and when i go to majority or the marshall islands he said this is about where we think. Amelia earhart went missing and it really got gebbie thinking again about it. And she dived into any books she can find on earhart and other female aviators when she got back and that really sped or on say. Someone gets a good idea but forgetting to do that trip. I think it was about finding soft confidence. And she just felt she really had to do something for herself to take control of her life and you know how it can be being a wife and a mother

It's not a A governance body. It's got a a broad general mandate And it's about regional corporation so it's not particularly a security body or particularly a trade body but it's about a common interests around the seek and it meets once a year in terms of its leadership to deal with issues that that facing all the pacific countries. It's obviously a big difference in size. Between a number of those countries many of those countries a very very small but other countries like australia and new zealander of illogic so y- there is a disparity in terms of income but a lot of common interest to. What's at the heart of this row. Well they're the region is divided up into into three sections And be the biggest issue here is relating to micronesia which is a clutch of islands that were operating as a book. These smart asia polynesia and melanie asia and the idea generally his bane that the leadership of the secretary general position would type between the three groups. Now the two logic groups Polynesia melanesia have had to goes at h. Since it was created micronesia filtered. It was east turn it puts candidate up and under what it's called a gentleman's agreement Received enough support to get up on the basis. That was a was a fair rotation about there was a last minute. Move against it and it didn't succeed loss by one voice and so they are very upset about that. They feel that they were let down particularly by australia and new zealand. That isis spit didn't vote for the micronesian nation candidate and in the end the pull the nation candidate. As you mentioned. Henry won the vice. So micronesians very upset. They talking about leaving the forum and it's just not ideal to have a split in that forum when they're a big issues at stake particularly the climate crisis which that forum has worked very well together as a pressure bloke own achieving trying to change globally in fact and in fact Done what better than australia's done to on us. And then there are other pressing issues that are going to affect the region as a whole of vaccination program for covid nineteen And also this issue of influence of china which.

Climate change is influencing Marshall Islands residents decisions to move

"In the middle of the pacific ocean between hawaii and australia. The republic of the marshall islands. The low-lying country is vulnerable to sea level rise fresh water shortages and extreme heat in recent decades. Many citizens have moved from the outer tolls to cities within the country or abroad to the united states yet. Surprisingly few say they are motivated by climate change. The perception is that people are moving because of education healthcare and jobs. The traditional drivers of migration maxine briquet is a professor of law at the university of hawaii and a global fellow at the wilson center. Her team dug deeper into migrants decisions and found that climate change did in fact play a role. She has many health and job concerns. Were linked to climate as heat affects the agricultural output as we see freshwater decreasing and making it more to grow food. These sorts of things can be in the background and impact the decision making that one will have regarding jobs and employment and wellbeing

Yes, especially this year to win all the cove in all of lockdowns and all that. Especially important really. This has been one depressing year Move on 20. Let's get to the next one. Let's get it. So how about this? Uh, this isn't the Marshall Islands at gay, which is way way out like around what? Between Hawaii and like Australia, right, like way out there in them in the ocean. And so the residents have noticed for, like a couple weeks. There's just like wooden abandoned wooden ship out there. That is just kind of stuck right? A small it won't really come in, and you know that kind of thing, And so some locals got to try to Pull this thing in. They can't write like this ship. This is for whatever reason this heavy, they finally want to get this thing in, and, uh, it's again. It's just It's kind of pretty just, you know, just regular looking old wooden boat. And that they find out beneath the floorboards. Ed is about £1500 of cocaine worth about $80 million. Wow. Yeah. Was by 649 sealed bricks of cocaine and each weighing about a kilo on it was in a compartment underneath, you know, kind of hidden like in the in the floor there. Which is why it was so heavy and they after they, you know, seize the cocaine and all that sort of stuff. They did a little research on the boat, and they think that this boat could have been just floating out in the ocean for two years or more. So what happened to the crew do in my obsolete? We don't know. Man. There's the bottom of the ocean or after whoever was supposed to after they didn't deliver the cocaine. Whoever they're supposed to. That guy might have, you know, came in Pay them a visit at I don't know. Who? Who would waste them much blow. Good Lord, man. Your people from the Marshall Islands could have swum Torto.

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs

"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.

"We can act like plan I'm sorry you guys I'm sorry for playing that clip I hope we don't have to censor any of that at station the that's my bad but I do think it's important to hear that to truly understand the unbelievably stupid position of a lecturer from the university of Washington in Seattle her name is Holly Barker and she hates SpongeBob so much SpongeBob the fictional underwater animated creature that she believes represents racism and violence I'm not making this up this is the latest effort from hypersensitive on hinged partisans looking to censor pop culture and pretty much ruined everything including harmless cartoons like this that kids enjoy and some adults who weird we are not at all shy about sharing how much they love spun Robert okay fine when your kid watches sponge Bob your kid sees this goofy character that lives in an underwater pineapple to Holly Barker she sees something more insidious so when CBS she wants to pretend that she's offended she argues in all seriousness in a magazine a journal called the contemporary Pacific a journal of island affairs she argues quotes sponge Bob square pants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of indigenous lands while a racing the ancestral bikini in people from their non fictional homeland see SpongeBob lives in a place called bikini bottom it's on the floor the Pacific Ocean now of course as presented in this cartoon the place does not exist the signature characters are fake the businesses including Krusty krab which we just heard a clip from that doesn't actually exist I'm told but it's apparently based this area on the TV after all in the Marshall Islands where American military personnel in the mid forties the late fifties they displaced native inhabitants to conduct nuclear testing it's a history but I think is interesting but it's a history at Barker uses to declare this cartoon quote it desensitizes viewers to the violence in a white wash is U. S. military rampages on the island in the history in narrative a bikini she argues that since SpongeBob and his friends live in this particular area it shows that he quote doesn't care about the detonation of nuclear bombs called the colonization racist violence fox news at a at a interesting right up on this I guess they paid the eighteen dollars for access to this stupid article they don't want to say Barker knowledge is that while the SpongeBob creators didn't intend to create a show about colonization it wasn't the writers for the taking and so they committed apparently interview cultural appropriation she then gets into how that children have become acculturated to an ideology that includes US character SpongeBob residing on another people's only I can't believe this I mean I hope you all join me in condemning this article not the show I think the show was fine because this is will fully unhinged right this is choosing to view what cartoon in a way that I think ultimately hurt your card because I about this I think she could very reasonably use the show as sort of this jumping off point to learn about the history of the region history is tragic right it's certainly traumatic for the people want to explore it hello all I had to live through it it's certainly interesting just from a historical perspective wanting to learn more about all these places and she could very easily just written an entire article that says Hey do you love watching SpongeBob well did you know that the city of bikini bottom is actually a real place with this tragic history let me tell you about it she could have done that and she probably would have gotten some people learning something that otherwise they would never get to learn but instead instead of doing that she decided to go down to social justice warrior angle for clicks worker seeks to explain in this piece as I'm reading it how what she is and she wants everyone to say well you're you're really woke thank you so much for looking out for our best interest I was watching SpongeBob this entire time with my kids and all my gosh I did not realize how much harm it was doing granted my kid is never expressed any intent to do any harm as a result of the colonization that kid didn't even I know what's happening on TV but now that you've told us to be offended I can be offended meanwhile a school district in Pennsylvania you're spending two point four million dollars to renovate the high schools locker rooms so their non gender specific and I would argue that this is the best thing to come out of the gender neutral bathroom and locker room stories that we've been talking about for the past what to wish three is years because no matter what your position is on gender neutral lockers in bath for push that aside for a moment I understand this is at least the concept we should all get behind just at least in principle the remodel they say is gonna create four zones with seventy six of private showers an additional forty eight private changing areas now the decision came after a little bit of of negotiation and trying to please someone who is not easily pleased I think this story indicates they say we made these changes because a transgender students came forward this transgender student was born biologically female but she identifies as a male and so she was fighting to use the mail locker rooms or sixty he was fighting in this case to use the mail locker rooms he presents as a female or a it's all mixed up yes I know no I don't think that any one individual student or staff member or anyone who worked at the school or any business should hold an entire company or school district or anything hostage because we should kinda want to make everyone as happy as humanly possible and we understand that in doing so there's always going to be someone who's going to be felt left out we got to mitigate that is best as humanly possible because personally I really do not care about who uses a bathroom I have a slightly different take on who uses locker rooms because I do think that it exposes younger kids sometimes the conversations that they shouldn't get be having but I generally take a position of look gender people have existed for a very long time they existed at a time where we weren't having these conversations and they were using bathrooms of their choosing and no one really said anything and there's already laws on the books right now that could go after the people who are not actually transgender want to take advantage of any perceived loop okay what's that is like for a second this is awesome because no one especially when we were kids no one wants the shower or you know do number two in front of other people in an open bathroom no one wants that and so what do we finally get if as a result of the conversations and debate and laws that have been passed on the concept of transgender bathroom a locker room used if that leads to more single stalls and more play a bit areas to change and shower I'm all in I will go hard core progressive on that because I remember when I frankly as an adult I don't want to have to do this it seems rather problematic we still have teenagers who were showering out in the open whether it's in front of other men or otherwise it just does not seem like we should be doing that in twenty nineteen I feel like we should probably move on from that because there's always the one or two kids who like to brag about what it is they got may love it but other than that no one else likes to do that now the downside of of this I I suppose and I should say supposed I can guarantee that in a situation like this kids are going to be look look into the hook up in the private showers of the changing areas depending on how private they are but we can police that I like going down this direction I'm all in the direction I don't endorse is pretending everyone is offended at a photo that might appear on Instagram because campers reform tells us over at Cal Poly they're investigating a student's Instagram post because the student made a joke about illegal immigrants and you're not allowed to joke about certain things regardless of the intent comedy of course used to be making people laugh particularly when you make them also feel uncomfortable at that exact same time I find that comedy to be the best what on a college campus especially in California Ole Ole you're not allowed to do that my friends that is prohibited even if it's funny campus reform says the post featured students dressed in bandannas and cowboy hats ray cal boys in aliens theme party the photo was captioned cowboys verses the legal aliens and while the Instagram profile of the user posted it is private someone shared it because they wanted to pretend to be outraged and tell the entire world how well they are on these issues they were outraged and you should be too even though the photo was private and you would have never otherwise have seen been exposed to this photo had it not been for the jerk who decided to posted everywhere university spokesperson Matt Lazier confirmed that cal poly's investigating the facts behind the photo even though I don't know what kind of investigation they would be able to do this is very clearly very clearly protected content right this is protected speech this is expression that is not a legal but they're they're gonna virtue single signal around anyway Cal Poly president Jeffrey Armstrong he sent an email to students and it's just it's so bad it's just it's not if it's striving really really hard to sing compassionate to a bunch of people who don't necessarily need the compassion he said we were disappointed to learn of a photo that has begun to circulate on social media that appears to demean undocumented students we know that this photo has a negative impact on members of our community particularly members of our undocumented students faculty and staff community their allies and others who work to promote an environment of inclusion at Cal Poly for those who are hurt by this photo I am almost holding back tears for those who have all been hurt by this photo no that we empathize and we stand with you I'm not for nothing do no one was hurt by the photo literally no one was hurt by this photo you can argue that the photo was offensive okay no I didn't do that but the joke isn't funny that you would personally choose not to engage in that kind of conduct okay fine offended doesn't mean you were somehow hurt emotionally obviously physically you've not been hurt but emotionally you've not been hurt either there is this weird for victimhood culture every single person has to fully embrace the fact that if you were offended you are somehow hurt.
