But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill.

Anthony Scaramucci on The Deal Of The Century
"Hi It's Johnny of justice out of the Four Seasons Hotel Ten Trinity Square Very Upmarket Hotel in private cloud wet tonight. Members were treated to a talk in a very intimate setting given by former White House. Communications director in the trump administration. Anthony Anthony SCARAMUCCI. Now he wasn't in the job for very long was he. He said something in confidence to what he thought was a friend. And that friend doped it in and all trump sacked him. Kim says he regretted working for trump. But I'm not so sure. He's made the very best out of it and he's become pretty well known all over the world but now I feel he SCARAMUCCI Mucci two point not after the public humiliation of his dismissal. In the world wide media glare it affected every part of his life including his marriage trump capitalized on that on twitter. But he's since reconciled with his other half now he's going out to campaign for Mike Bloomberg mini Mike as he calls him and we've heard that he's being true to his political instincts as a democrat. He wants to underpin the principles and institutions of the American constitution which she says are paper thin enough to his talk. I got a chance to talk to him. One on one about the deal of the century a bid for new settlement in Israel title with the Palestinians the issue with the Palestinians he says. Is that oftens in this discourse. They don't have adequate political advocacy Kazeem. People don't care about them because they not an economic engine. Israel is an economic engine so if the PA's failed leadership doesn't come to the table able and Israel pushes for the annexation as he calls it of all territories which they regard as that which they feel they need against the people who called a won't negotiate he says is a route to hopelessness and self destruction in SCARAMUCCI is book. They need to come to the table. Take the fifty billion dollars in stock the negotiation man. He drew powered else with the American founding. Fathers Protecting the tyranny of the individual the most sacred minority in the system against the Overriding majority well. That's not a fulsome parallel. But I understand his point. SCARAMUCCI is a Roman Catholic not Jewish. But he's a self declared Zionist. He's even happy to call it Judea and Samaria not the West Bank. Have a listen to Anthony SCARAMUCCI. Thank you very much ronsard. That's a Jewish. I am Jewish as honest like Y. Ou explain why but here. It's it doesn't matter whether you and I this if you WANNA protect Israel and you want to provide for peace and security for Israel. They need an advocate at the table Palestinian. It's almost like a prime minister. Should say okay okay. You're the designated advocate for the Palestinians. Not handling it themselves. You have to go in there and try to convince these people to do things certain SORTA way they can get the rights of the need and the sovereignty. They need the self-fulfilment it. They just keep on the Palestinians on being used internationally as vehicle sandwiches such a credit but they don't have a willing leadership then not in the business. Yeah no exactly so. This deal is about a divorce. Peace Not War. Do you agree with her. Yeah but but I I think that we have to be more than think water with the bigger for it to be more transformation. Of course they're being used. You gotTA understand. The Israelis have an advocate the United States they have members of the West that are provided vitamin advocacy. If you don't create balance or some level of symmetry remember von Metternich. Said about peace in peace when you need balance in peace you need. A structured forces were allies of committed to suppressing the Internet. And if you're that on balance you're going to create a period of hopelessness that will be. They have hopelessness already.

"I'm which turns out to be very punitive you talk about how they use something that's called a degradation ceremony what exactly is a degradation ceremony so that's a classic notion from a sociologist named harold garfinkle and he wrote this famous short little paper in the fifties i think about the process of the degradation ceremony so he meant to include the way lots of social institutions kind of use these little rituals to lower people status and to convey that they are like a subordinate or lower stigmatized group of people compared to others so this would include you know the way prisons would say shave people's heads and put them in uniforms or the way that a court would put handcuffs on someone and have them taken out in this sort of the ritual of proclaiming a sentence and all these sorts of things that especially penal institutions although i imagine other organizations might use it to but basically kind of little rituals that half that are used to convey that someone is kind of descending in status this is becoming a lesser person and so w test definitely did this when women entered the program they had to go through a process the wto has called induction and that was a delousing shower that was observed by staff members so you know they would have to get naked and wash themselves with anti lice soap this they didn't do this kind of thing a gladstone lodge you know even though both organizations would have reason to fear lice infestations like neither from want liceinfested asian they didn't force women to go through that kind of a degrading process at gladstone lodge and that i do directly attributed to it that wts his location in a criminal justice system it cared a lot about signaling women's lower status whereas gladstone lodged did a lot of work to try to save the women in its programme from stigma because you know being labelled addict might be seen as a stigmatizing identity no matter whether you're the criminal justice system or in the health care system but they they add.

"Crime that say a parole officer or a court deemed to be drug involved but were also didn't have particularly heavy histories of substance abuse and so they would end up in these criminal justice treatment programs like wts but really not fit what we imagine those programmes do so one case a woman was smoking marijuana recreational at home and she her neighbor called the police on her this was i think because they had been hat they had had some prior disputes her neighbour was mad at her and the police showed up arrested the the woman who ended up a wts put her two children in foster care and she had to go to treatment and this is a residential treatment program for a full year so on you know that has more to do with her contact with the criminal justice system than any real reflection of her drug use and likewise there was another woman who i call i use pseudonyms for all of the women so i kohler lena and she went to wta s because she was paroled from prison and had violated her parole stipulations with a positive drug test and when she went to wts for an intake interview which i saw happen there they asked her all these questions about her history and including her substance abuse history and she made this claim that she had only used cocaine twice you know and so she should have a short stint in the penal rehab what was strange about this was you know so i i assumed that the staff wouldn't believe this kind of a story and after lena left the room i asked the intake councillor you hear stories like that a lot from women and to my surprise she was pretty willing to believe lean a story that she'd really only used cocaine twice and had been caught both times which shocked me and so i i was totally baffled and i asked her why parole would send a woman to wts who didn't have a drug problem and the intake councillor was kind of like well he thought she needed structure so that seem to be enough to to mandate her to rehab for.

"In this case it sounds like punishment for punishment sake frankly i mean if they truly wanted to help this woman or any of the one and actually in and they would make sure that they had access to all of these services that they need outside of treatment well i mean when you when you make treatment or access to health care or other social services a kind of tool for reforming people if they don't you know that's used by the criminal justice system if they don't comply than they can be taken away because the whole thing is being done under this punitive model you know that's one of the risks of doing this kind of service provision through criminal justice it's not that the people there don't need it in fact they they really do you know the people who are criminalised are often very poor very marginalized you know racially excluded they have core you know have had poor educations come from dangerous or underserved neighborhoods you know they have a great deal of needs we know that but it's it's because we've incarcerated so many people because we arrest so many people that you know we've we've decided oh well they have all these needs we should deliver the you know them services the criminal justice system because that's where they are what strange that that coexists with the fact that we don't actually provide that many services to poor people and poor neighborhoods outside of the criminal justice system we've in fact continually withdrawn those kinds of social services cement in the case in the book where there is one woman who ended up in wts her women treatment services which i should restate is that centers linked to the criminal justice system and she was brought in for for what you know most people would think of his casual marijuana use how did win like this end up in singers that are intended to to treat serious drug habits one of the things it's really remarkable is how little people's actual druguse matters in the kind of rehab that they end up in so this is what you're getting at that people would end up in a criminal justice based rehab who often who didn't really have drug problems i think or at least a court what most people would consider serious drug problem so they were recreational users or they were involved in.

"Drawing them from outside of the criminal justice done it means that poor people need to get criminalised in order to gain access to them and then when they're in there like as you noted they could you know be taken away at any time kind of as a threat of punishment so it makes the whole kind of social safety net much more punitive but the reason that we get them expelled and sent to prison weren't always clear it was a bit unclear so that it was up to the staff's discretion weber at least for most cases whether someone's if infraction or series of infractions was was serious enough to basically eject them from the program to kind of expel them and if they got expelled they would either be sent back to her role which might likely decide a woman would be incarcerated or to a court which might make the same kind of determination and so those sorts of things like using drugs again rarely got women expelled from the program but things like having a relationship especially with another client so having sexual relationships with another client could get women expelled from the program as could certain kinds of things like refusing to take medication i saw women get expelled for that for committing another crime and getting rearrested that would and not surprisingly get women expelled from the program and some and may be violence but i didn't see that much violence i think it was officially on the rules that violence could get women expelled from the program with a kind of an unsatisfactory discharge but i didn't really see any of that there so i would imagine that that they might take that seriously as well whereas other kinds of things like you know the the woman who you mentioned was able to leave early so the court no longer required her to complete her sentence there and they wanted to keep her in the program they lead lost power over this woman but they did have power over the kind of services they could give her access to so they used that to basically extends their ability to govern her life even outside of the actual criminal sentence which was something that they thought was important i mean they thought it was important to use the services as kind of a carrot in.

"Sms having people involved and under criminal justice supervision for longer than they would've that they had just served whatever the jail sentence was for their crimes so sometimes when we force people into treatment they spend more time in the criminal justice system than they would if they just went to jail and a lot of people including myself have argued that these mandated treatment programmes actually expand you know the car several system that although there not prisons they expanded in new ways and you know we sometimes we try to do good with them like we deliver services to people that we're all we're doing so sort of under the shadow of of the prison an under the shadow of mass incarceration and what one of the things that w test did so well which makes it kind of a really best case scenario of what people would like to see in criminal justice treatment is that it it combined really therapeutic orientation gender sensitive orientation with a lot of social services so you know women could get housing placement and vocational assistance and ged crap things like that so it was kind of like of resource in which were delivering social services to mostly poor people but doing it through the criminal justice system and the women at w tests found that they could get more services there than they could anywhere else in in in any other kind of state program but you know this additional social services you know there are also included in the punitive measures that these singers jozsef a woman and where to receive an infraction of some sort she could also lose access to social services like mental health treatment following her recovery for instance in for example there is a woman that you mentioned in the book who was granted an early release and the councillors agreed with the decision to release her early so as a form of punishment they limited the social services that she'd have access to after treatment yeah that's correct i mean so they could withdraw people social services as a kind of punishment and in general i think this is a really bad way to deliver essential social welfare services to needy people because it basically suresh stretched first it starts to shift all these services into the criminal justice system while we.

"Through aggressive policing and prosecution techniques we actually get the emergence of these new kinds of treatment programmes that operate as kind of satellites to the prison um and this is the sort of place that wts is it's an alternative to incarceration facility but it's operating kind of totally within the orbit of of the heart of the criminal justice system and prisons and courts and things like that so that's an important context to have to understand why i wanted to know what would happen if you did treatment outside of the criminal justice system which is what led me to select the lodge to compare to and to think about what it means to do the same thing ostensibly you know addiction treatment in these two very different ways what does it mean to punish people as treatment or to do it as as healthcare partly because i wanna bring a critical eye to the use of addiction treatment within the criminal justice system to see what we are actually using it to do in if we think that this is gonna be a selection lucien to the opioid crisis or to mass incarceration we need to have a better sense of what really goes on in these programmes how the criminal justice system shapes what they do and what the experiences of people who go through them are like so many of the interesting things that you exploring the book is how women who entered these centres you know they're trying to recover under the constant threat of actually going to prison yes for most of the women there who have criminal justice mandates which has like the large large majority of women they could get sent to prison or jail if they are if they his mess up in the program and the programme besides that they need to be referred back to the court or to prison and so the kind of threat of imprisonment is is what helps make the place run they they need the threat of prison to force people into the programs and to force compliance while there in the program so it's kind of an extension of that system rather than an alternative although we do refer to these places as alternatives to incarceration um they end up some time.

"I'm jim taylor skinner and mrs the electorate a couple of months ago i attended a local event called ask aqap the intention was that ordinary citizens could talk to members of the police force and we could ask questions about policing obviously the goal was to make connections between everyday citizens and the police i met several female police officers and one of them started to talk to me about women in the criminal justice system and all of the unique ways policing effects women she also talked about drug addiction you know i think about a lot of issues and held a uniquely effect to women and frankly this is one that i didn't know much about so this led me to the book addicted to rehab who was written by sociology professor allison we kept the book examines the process of rehabilitation in relation to race gender and socioeconomic status professor we can compares chew treatment programmes one which is linked to a criminal justice system and one that is it we also discussed the idea of women's centre treatment and the ways in which treatment is often intertwined with gender in racial stereotypes so without further ado here is professor allison professor ellison the can welcome thank you for having me and your book addicted to rehab you described to drug treatment centres for women in one is the women treatment services or wts in the other as gladstone lodge and they both serve quite different demographics of women can you just set the stage by describing the two centres and talk a bit about the demographics that they cater to yes so women's treatment services or w tests for short is in the criminal justice system and gladstone lodge is in the health care system and what i mean by this is that wts is funded almost entirely by criminal justice agencies like parole and drug courts and it gets its clients through those kind of referral mechanisms meanwhile gladstone lodge is a health care insurance based rehab and so like most rehab 's it's in in the private sector.
