How Should Elites Treat Their Country?

"Treat their country? How should the people in charge of their country and the economic elites or in cultural institutions or in the movies or in any form of power? How should they treat their country? Well, a hundred years ago, Carnegie Mellon and chase, they were some of the wealthiest people ever in the history of the planet. Now there is no doubt that they were powerful and that they had wealth, but they used that wealth largely to try and preserve America, build hospitals, libraries, build YMCAs, build things that actually helped the well-being of the nation. They wanted a strong America. Now, over the last couple of years, a common lament from this program has been the fact that the people who are in charge of our country, the wealthiest people, are involved in this pattern of self hatred. They're engaged in this relentless pattern of not doing what's best for the country of engaging in ideas for the World Economic Forum, the suppression of free speech, woke ideology, the suffocation of the individual, we have talked about how people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros and the Google people and the Louis Vuitton guy. They seem to be so fixated on using their unlimited wealth to do things that actually hurt the cause of liberty. Not help the cause of liberty. That hurt the strength of America and weaken America. This has seemed to be almost overwhelming, especially the last couple of years. We've been complaining about how AstraZeneca Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna. They cooperate with Fauci and the FDA and Bill Gates and it seems like the elites have it all figured out. That they always have each other's back and basically the only thing that we have left is the truth, which matters and common everyday people fighting for that. We felt outnumbered and for good reason. We turn around and we

Pittsburgh Wants You to See Constellations

"When astronomer diane turn shack move to pittsburgh in nineteen eighty-one she noticed. Something big was missing from the night sky. When i grew up in new england you could just walk outside and look up and see the milky way. But when i arrived in pittsburgh the sky had started to decline in quality. Still she says at the time her students at carnegie mellon university were very familiar with the milky way they knew about stars and constellations. That is not the case anymore forty years later. I have to explain what the milky way is and describe what it looks like in a show pictures and they think those pictures are fake. Because of light pollution major constellations can be totally invisible in cities. The pittsburgh city council is now trying to do something about it with the help of scientists like turn check. It passed a dark sky. Ordinance last week to reduce light pollution. This city is going to replace streetlights with warm tone. Led lights and they're also going to install shields so that late doesn't travel up what we're trying to do is cut out the light at the blue end of the spectrum because blue light scatters more easily than red light in the atmosphere rate. That's why the sky is blue. So blue light scatters everywhere. It doesn't stay where your lighting and to measure progress. She has some help in the higher ups in august. The astronauts on the international space station took some pictures of pittsburgh for on a clear night. And that's the before shot. The astronauts are gonna continue to take pictures of pittsburgh so we will have during pictures and after pictures. Terzic believes that as the sky's get darker more people will look up. In wonder that means more people more children will be able to see it and the benefits of being connected to half of our universe. I can't overstate that.

"Couple of questions black lives matter. What should all americans understand about black lives matter. And where does it fit into america. Organically is it some big plots of the democrat party.

H week bought from july when the government half those caps that reduced And the so. The number of passengers allowed to come in on commercial. Flights into sydney was leave. One thousand five hundred a week. Melbourne brisbane dropped down to five hundred passengers. Awake and perth adelaide. Down to only two hundred sixty five eighty per week. The impact of that was already quite devastating but that was only supposed to be until the end of august. Sadly last week the australian government extended those halved arrived caps until now the end of october and that in fact they didn't even have the courtesy of announcing this publicly. What they did is they just informed the airlines and the airlines have now had to stop dumping twenty seven thousand. People in total of flights. Were booked on over the next two months ellen. What does this mean overall in terms of flights to australia. Unfortunately we've seen a lot of flights get canceled. Four raza timber and in some cases. The of started cancelling fraud type as well as even that reduction kept now in places where the toyota That means that a little flat to being played cancelled and the can't cancelled innocence operating That means is. I know your passengers being carried and the cap is now low at two hundred sixty five seeing some of these carry about ten passengers and often the majority of these business plus fortunately with adelaide is not as many airlines flying in.

Power Grids Feel the Pressure of Intense Storms

"Hurricane ida crumpled a major transmission tower. That survived katrina sixteen years ago building infrastructure. That strong enough is hard when the target keeps moving because storms are getting stronger energy consultant alison silverstein says utilities and their regulators can take planning cues from murphy's law. We need to assume that everything possible that could go wrong is going to go wrong. Simultaneously and murphy is always gonna win. President biden's climate plan includes a much bigger role for electricity electric cars. For example cutting carbon footprint says easier with electricity from emission free sources like wind solar and nuclear. But even those have to stand up to extreme weather putting wires underground may seem obvious but engineering professor destiny. Knock at carnegie mellon university says that won't always work in hurricane country where you might have under grounded. The lines to protect them from wind putting them underground makes them more susceptible to flooding knock. Says it's never just one thing that's going to keep the lights. On energy experts. We interviewed agree on a few basic ideas though. They say the grid should be more decentralized so the whole thing doesn't shut down at once. More generation out in communities such as solar power would accomplish that but new orleans utility energy has resisted calls for just that to the frustration of local activists at mit engineering professors. Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

We must recognize that embedded within its physical embodiments are a wide array of people and organizations both past and present. Our research conceptualize is bridges as institutional relics institutional in that engineers designed bridges according to standards of the time relics in that. These standards are explicitly built into the bridges physical attributes which persist even when these standards changes societies evolve. These bridges do not just carry outdated standards but also social buys. He's from the time as physical infrastructure is difficult to move. New infrastructures often built along. These outdated footprints further locking in these biopsies using data up to twenty ten we find communities with greater percentages of african. Americans and hispanics are still associated with fewer bridges and associated with more restrictive bridges clearance constrict the free flow of buses or trucks. When they even get one in another study we find that even one new bridge in a city increases high growth startup rates by sixteen percents outdated infrastructure therefore continues to systematically shut out black and brown communities from accessing economic opportunities are infrastructure does not just transport people goods and services. They transport new ideas and with them. Hope and opportunity. They also perpetuate outdated ideas that give bias in exclusion continued life so the next time you cross a bridge think about all the benefits of access connection and innovation. The you take for granted from this silent engineering marvel however also think about the community intersected and displaced to make that possible.

Becoming a pale imitation of other individuals and then they wonder why they're not succeeding because nobody wants a pale imitation of somebody else. They want the unique special version of you. They want your campfire. That is unique that a solving a massive pain point that they have so. How can we identify those skills and experiences. Might we can then turn into a business. This is what i did. And i don't know how i stumbled upon this exercise. I think it was just out of frustration. Years ago. When i started out i looked at all the different jobs i had. I used to teach. sat's to high school students. I don't know if you even i worked. I worked at chase mellon investor services of work in their phones. I did a semester of telemarketing between college. Semesters i worked as the music director of a church. And i was the of a company in one day jail the i wrote down everything i did. These jobs not just what was on the job description but literally everything i did. Did i mentor people. Did i mentor. Young teachers did. I talk my see off the cliff a few times you know. Did i work with volunteers. Did i speak from stage. Certainly did i do all these things. So i wrote these things down and i wrote daniel. I spoke at the stage and perform music and hosted conferences. And i mentored people that. I sold products At that job in. I took my pen and i crossed out the end of every sentence in instead of saying i spoke at church where lead music teams were recruited. Volunteers there it just said i spoke in marketed at a hosted conferences. That i mentored and coached. Embroi- tell you when i looked at that list staring back at me.

How to Email Your Abandoned Email List

"There's a lot of people tell us that. Oh well you know. I've got an email this. But i've been a bit shit. Not even even the very often and they say go your complete daily email strategy on the number of the league and study only stuff. So i'm gonna email every three and a half minutes now. I'm gonna email of every day or every week and we have to go like that cowboy. Who the whole says. Please don't do that right. I mean a lot of people do this without realizing. And i think there's two two major causes of at one. Is people build a list because the tool to build a nest and you should but then they feel worried about emailing them too much. So this of overcompensate and put it off and get paralyzed by that complication and then they go. Oh well i'll just no email him. Because i do an email and my conny mellon too much and then that's one side of it and then on the flip side of it. It's the people who see that this as like an asset that it'll be there when they need it so like i only pick up food and when i want to send somebody a text message or a phone call look on tacos and thing and the rest of the time. It's just on the desk and when you look at it. I think people look at our email list. Does this thing that go right Not really looking not doing a sale right now launching. Anything anything special happening on not doing. I'm not doing any of those things. I'll get my list to be right there when i need it. And then when they do need it. It's like the climate in the attic and take out the wooden box the cable subscribers in and then they blew the dust off a big cloud and then open up to see see if subscribers still paying attention. That's such as blinded by the light. Avance seen they lie. You never feed me feed us. You're gonna give us give them nutrients right right. So that's what happens.

I do encourage you to read gyms wikipedia profile which all link in the shower nights and now folks i present to you special guest. Jim mellon jim. I know you've done many interviews over the years and it's quite possible that you're a little bit bored of speaking about this but it is pretty rare that i get to sit down with someone who has amassed a fortune like you have so for someone like me and of course. I'm speaking on behalf audience here. I'm naturally very curious about the path you talked to get there and really just how the hill you did it. So probably the starting point few was you'll move to hong kong. We became a fund manager. I mean how did you wind up in that position. Like had you done any investing prior to that no toe very much like at a similar job today so basic left university walk before and after university at she they had something in england at the time goal the milk ground when the companies would come to universities and interviewed evil and use either be offered jobs. Not i was off the job with clock shoes which is now bankrupt. Birth jebron factor and stockbroker in the city of london. Still gang actually. I'm ben i also for the job by this obscure little company in hong kong and i took hong hongkong one because i really wanted to go to the seas on i have.

Local Governments Promoting Incentives to Encourage Covid Vaccinations

"According to the centers for disease control just a bit more than forty six percent of the entire. us population. that's everybody has gotten at least one dose of covid vaccine thirty five percent is fully vaccinated but things are slowing down. Millions of people are still hesitant and herd. Immunity is for now maybe not looking so great so local governments are partnering with businesses to offer free stuff in exchange for getting a shot incentives matter that we know but do they work. Marketplace's kristen schwab has more on that. The mission to get more vaccines into people's arms is starting to take on a bit of an oprah. winfrey vibe. west. Virginia is giving one hundred dollars savings bonds to adults under thirty. Five main is offering free hunting and fishing licenses and in new orleans a pound of crawfish. Incentives are nice. Because they're the bronx near leading people toward something in a positive way. Knoll brewer researches vaccination behavior at the university of north carolina. He says incentives appeal to people across party. Lines and studies show. They increase vaccine uptake by about eight percent. If the incentive is of value mario macho is a behavioral economist at johns hopkins. There are costs and benefits to any any action and a person engages in the action if her perceived benefits exceed her received. The costs costs can be literal like to and from a vaccination site. The biden administration has partnered with uber and lift to provide free rides but benefits can also offer people. Something they want. New jersey is running a shot and a beer program macho says this can make a needle in the arm. Seem fun ause you. They might go without with a friend or a group of friends and get vaccinated together and then go out and get their free beer and incentives. Like new york's free tickets to a mets or yankees game. Also whisper freedom like.

"I might mention prime. And i'm a student in much lending in public policy at carnegie mellon university. I might've said basically focuses on baton minding on this action and this isn't support systems. I think a lot of people have a vague conception of what anomaly detection is. You're welcome to give a formal definition or an informal one but to you. What is anomaly detection. A nominee addiction is typically. I'll give you a former left. Nation or infamous sense of what an effective is an omni is defined as anything which dates from the normal. So as against the definition of normal is again dependent on the application or the domain better. You are applying tim. Bontemps insolence example. If you're meeting at a classroom right. So it's you're looking under classroom. And if you're dusted regarding ages of the people present in the classroom on the students typically would have age range between say eighteen and twenty one and maybe professor has in asia injured in party fight. Bless or something. I'm just making this up right. So in that sense. The normal is defined because we are under guarding h defined by maybe the ages Drain so in that sense. The deter would be an anomaly in that sense because teachers age his on her age is like different from the nominal. It's in that sense. That would be anomaly in this case. Essentially a number is a field with strives to unusual activity or unusual observations in a given domain. And that's not a nominalization with and since it's about finding unusual things you typically find applications of anomaly detection intrusion detection save. Fraud detection are even in medical domains. Light say epileptic seizure detection on salon.

Oldest Texas Electricity Co-Op Goes Bust After $2 Billion Bill

"11 bankruptcy protection today. Citing they said a nearly $2 billion bill from the state's electricity grid operator following the storm. Marketplaces and you'll reports. Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country. Raza's Electric is a cooperative that pays the grid operator to get electricity to hundreds of thousands of Texans. The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign. As other Texas power providers success the storm's damage in Austin, I made a Euler for marketplace.

Lee Daniels and Andra Day on the hidden activist life of Billie Holiday

"Good afternoon. I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post. Welcome to washington post. Live the united states versus. Billie holiday is the incredible story of the fbi's effort efforts to keep jazz great billie holiday from singing strange fruit. Her signature song about lynching director lee daniels presents a gripping drama that shows holiday in all her glory and tragedy. Andrew o.'day gives a stellar performance. So convincing you'd think you were watching lady day herself. That's why i am thrilled and honored to welcome lee daniels and andhra dade to washington post. Live thank you both very much for being here to see you again. I know it's been a very long time. Greats isn't a you again both of you. Congratulations on this film. The moment i saw it. I immediately sent a letter to y'all saying okay here. All your options. I need to talk to you about this film. Le- let me start. Start with you. Thanks so as we saw in the in the opening clip. The film tackles pretty much everything. Racism sexism addiction art abuse. And i'm wondering. How did you come to this project. And what influenced your approach to billie. Holiday's life susan lori parks the pulitzer winning a prize winning playwright Sent me this beautiful script that really depicts the government breaking her down coming for her coming for billie holiday and and really trying to cripple her. As an artist or singing strange fruit which was about lynching black people and that wasn't the understanding of billie holiday that i had. I thought that she was a troubled jazz singer. Got in trouble with the law. And you know the drugs and was fashionable. I did know that she was a political activist. And so and i you know i pride myself in being smart about our history and i thought to myself that i i don't do this. I don't know i had. I had to do it. And i thought also like how many other stories about our people have have. They have been hidden so yeah that was more threes in selena. And so right and i am going to latch onto what you just said before. Which was you thought of billie holiday as a jazz singer But you didn't really know that she was an activist. What what more did she do. Other than being defiant about trying to seeing strange fruit despite government opposition and government targeting. What other things that she do that made you realize that she's she's more than just lady day. What other than she did. Besides stand up to the government. I guess a lot to say i couldn't. I don't know that i could today. I don't think that i could. They told me lead. You can never make a movie again or coming for your mother. I'm going to come for your kids and you will. I'm like take it. But the thing about her strength and her being born in the into the world that she was being born in tipton board she didn't she didn't get to fly in you know what because she. She had nothing to lose by living in her constantly. And let me bring you in here. I saw your interview go ahead. Go ahead now. I just wanted to back off that too. I mean. I think what shows so brilliantly in the movies that apart what she did in standing up to the government was being human. She's black queer woman in the nineteen thirties. Forties and fifties and that living in an owning their in itself is is is defiance than accident that she's integrating audiences music one of the first artists a black woman to integrate carnegie hall. She wasn't the first but she is one of the first shoes audiences in athlete. People understand. This is sort of pre. They're real reinvigorated civil rights mellon so we wouldn't have our heroes would not have been as bold in as they were no thurgood. Marshall end the light on downs. You know rosa parks on down if it were not for her singing. Strange fruit in defiance of the government for not for setting off this alarm in the nation. In letting people know that it's that this was a really really understand. How much for june that emboldened the civil rights news we know today you know as as arrested in the so and him showing her in all her. Human element is is access. Defiance all in itself nelson young. I'm proud from did work.

If super exists. You know it does not you know it does not exist at energies or masses of super symmetric particles that we can you know Reach with the large hadron collider And again you know it could certainly be that these particles have masses that are just beyond the reach of the karnataka.

"Mellon foundation guided by the belief of the arts and humanities are essential to the well being of diverse in democratic societies learn more at Mellon dot org it's morning edition from NPR news on the well king and I'm Steve Inskeep what does today's expected Senate acquittal of president trump mean for the American system of checks and balances Kim Wylie is not so optimistic she's a law professor at American University and wrote about this subject for the Atlantic she's on the line good morning good morning Steve are you suggesting that Congress has thrown away its influence over the president yeah I'm in a dead presidents lawyer of a Pat Philbin said that there are numerous numerous political tools it can use in battles going forward and none of them I think are really legitimate anymore appropriations legislation nomination process and we can go through each of them ending in in addition peach meant but I think this vote demonstrates impeachment is probably not going to function as really a a limitation on this president's activity in his own mind anyway going forward because of course the president has such strong support within his own party that impeachment would seem to be highly unlikely at this time now I want to mention that some of the Republicans who are voting to work with the president never the less argue that they still have some power over the president because of some of the same tools you just alluded to we had Lamar Alexander on the program on Friday shortly after he announced the president did something inappropriate but not impeachable let's listen to what he said about congress' continuing power I think the fact that he has appropriations bills which we have to vote on war powers acts which we have to vote on his decision to take money and use it to build a wall in a way that's not authorized which we have to vote on all those are checks and balances and so is the Supreme Court so I think I think the process is operating very well what you're missing well I mean that the the whole what I'm one of the allegations relating to impeachment is that he violated the empowerment control lacked the GAO issued a long report that said essentially the president didn't have the authority to in uniformly unilaterally withhold the aid from Ukraine without letting Congress now and the right now all lots of bills that come from the house of representatives on lots of issues don't get to the Senate floor because Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won't even raise them so we don't have a Congress that is actually functioning to produce legislation and even in legislation that's on the books this president has decided I don't need to adhere to it I don't need to listen to that statute and I don't need to pay attention to Congress's appropriations power none of these checks mean anything if there are not consequences for violating the checks that's really the issue it's not so much what the law says but when the law is violated or or banded what is their push back and right now I don't see any push back from this Congress Republicans were particularly scornful of the article of impeachment that accused the president of obstructing the will of Congress they said the Democrats in the house have not tried hard enough to investigate not tried hard enough to get administration witnesses before the men administration documents before them that they just kind of punted and and and and issue that article of impeachment does this in fact seemed like a new level of the president ignoring Congress's power to investigate and oversee yeah there's no question I'm employers and don't and presidents don't have the opportunity to flout establish law and force Congress in this instance to go back to court to get joint judges to say what the law already is and there is no law supporting blanket on limited immunity from having to testify for before Congress even for presidents let alone for people that work for the presidency in addition this president didn't respond to any document request so to the people who lose in this process are the American public and Congress is not protecting its own prerogative of oversight and it's that piece that's really damaging because were watching the presidency the office become one that has virtually unlimited power but it does make November twenty twenty really important for purposes of protecting constitution that's former federal prosecutor Kym Whaley now a law professor at American University thanks so much thank you see president trump delivered his state of the union address last night and our co host David was watching far from Washington I was in Madison County Iowa where president trump one big in twenty sixteen Diane Fitch is a county supervisor there and she was watching the end of president trump speech on fox with some friends all of them from supporters and my fellow Americans the best is.

"Mellon foundation guided by the belief that the arts and humanities are essential to the well being of diverse and democratic societies learn more at Mellon dot work this is fresh air and we're speaking with Philip Rucker and Carol lytic Philip Rucker is the White House bureau chief for The Washington Post Caroline is a national investigative reporter at the paper they both won Pulitzer prizes and they have a new book about the trump administration called a very stable genius the president is known for frequent misstatements of fact not every misstatement of fact is a lie right sometimes you can be mistaken how do you use your judgment and how to characterize these things you know we follow the advice of our executive editor Marty parent who feels like to call a statement of the president's ally is a is a big hurdle to to call something a lie we have to know what the president's intent was did he intend to mislead and misinformed and in fact lie you know so many of the things that he says were more comfortable calling them misstatements are falsehoods because we don't necessarily know that he knows that they're false we don't necessarily know what's in his mind you know when he was on his birth there is I'm crusade about president Obama and insisting that he was born in Kenya or at least not born in Hawaii that was clearly a lie there was a clear political motivation there he had been clearly proven wrong by the facts by the actual birth certificate that was a lie but a lot of the statements that the president makes that are not true we don't apply that label to it because we just can't discern what his motivation is what is your personal interactions with the president and look I started covering Donald trump's campaign very early on in an interview them numerous times at trump tower in over the course of that campaign and then several times in the White House and you know he actually called me on the phone on a Saturday morning as early on in this project with Carol and I started working on it and I took the opportunity to explain to him the book and and what we're doing and you know he was supportive he said I want a proper book done I you know you're a serious person you should come in and out all do an interview I'll do it and unfortunately the relationship devolved you know in the months that followed because he was had such hostility with the news media and with the Washington post in particular but I've always found in my interactions with him including on Air Force One when hell sometimes come back to the cabin to chit chat that he's always seeking our approval and not just me of course but the other reporters in the press corps he wants to impress says he wants to I have an impact on our thinking change the way we view him in his administration and his policies I was with him in London in December for the the NATO summit and the yeah I don't know if if your listeners will remember but he had a day where he had three back to back foreign leader meetings and normally their photo ops there were you just come in for about two or three minutes and get a picture of the president with his foreign counterpart in and you leave and in each instance he talks to us for thirty minutes forty five minutes taking question after question after question and he would repeatedly like look at me and say do you have any more do you have anymore give me another one he seemed to enjoy it and so you know he tweets what he tweets of course but the deep down and when you're in a little bit more of a private setting he very much craves our approval yeah I've often wondered if reporters who have personal experiences with the president when they are in rallies and the president is is the rating the fake news media that you wish some of those hearing this insuring could actually see him interacting with reporters at a personal level it's really a different attitude it's it's very different and you know this is true before he became president and it's especially true now he views the media and especially the mainstream media as his oxygen he wants to be on the front page he wants to be taken seriously like a credible figure he brags privately about how many front page stories he's on and the New York times which is of course his hometown paper now where the hometown paper The Washington Post but it it's a very different mindset than the one that he projects publicly to his supporters you know I'm sure when you began this project you had no idea that it would be published just as a trial trial would be beginning in the sense with a friend no way impeachment how has that affected you know I don't know the impact the reception of the book in a weird way Dave the all the reporting that we did in all the new things we found out the themes of of what this what motivates this president how he runs his shop they all foreshadowed this moment in a way I'm not saying they foreshadowed obstruction or they foreshadowed abuse of office with the foreshadowed was a theme throughout the presidency Donald Trump is interested in perpetuating as I'm power it's a presidency of one and it's escalating in the direction of undue of lack of discipline and chaos a den of dysfunction as as Phil rocker put it once in a story and here we are at this moment why is the president in so much hot water because the guard rails are gone he was relying on Rudy Giuliani who told him Hey we can get some dirt on your number one political opponent Joe Biden in Ukraine and the president asked the Ukraine president for a favor on a telephone call and the favor was for the perpetuation of his own power and that was to help him in his reelection and get some dirt on his on his then number one follow Philip Rucker Caroline eggs thank you so much for speaking with us thank you Dave thank you Dave Carolyn it is a national investigative reporter for The Washington Post Philip Rucker is the papers White House bureau chief their new book is a very stable genius Donald J. trump's testing of America coming up we remember Monty Python co founder Terry Jones he died yesterday at the age of seventy seven this is

"Mellon foundation guided by the belief that the arts and humanities are essential to the well being of diverse in democratic societies learn more at Mellon daughter work. on a Friday it's morning edition from NPR news I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington DC and I'm David green at NPR west in Culver city California and Nate Wright is here with me he covers the environment for NPR and we're talking about the trump administration's decision to repeal obamacare regulation protecting wetlands and streams from pollution the environmental protection agency confirmed this yesterday saying they want to give farmers home builders and land owners more certainty and they can you just start how this Obama era regulation was was working so that might be giving it too much credit almost. you know from the very beginning when this rule was implemented in twenty fifteen it was facing challenges legal challenges political challenges all the above but basically what the regulation was trying to do was expand federal water protections under the clean water act to rivers streams wetlands lakes some argued even ponds. they didn't officially have protections before the clean water act largely limits pollution in what they what are called navigable waters think big rivers you know big enough to float a boat but in the forty plus year since the clean water act was amended to affect court decisions including Supreme Court decision left the door open for protections of water ways to be expanded so not just you know rivers but the streams that feed into those rivers of the wetlands next to them water systems are connected right. so Obama wanted to officially extend federal water protections to that larger connected system but it never got off the ground really because of all these legal challenges everything but so you'd farmers you'd minors you a lot of people pushing Tom ministration for this role back of this Obama era regulation what was their sense argument well you know like look without question that this rule certainly expanded federal protections to the water was it didn't maybe automatically have them before and that alone was fuel from criticism for criticism from miners farmers developers who saw this is a federal land grab and argued that it was an over interpretation of what the clean water act itself allows the federal government to do. so they were thrilled to see the trump administration carry through on its promise to repeal this but as with a lot of policies one where the other it's kind of hard to know what the on the ground impact was. just a lot of the rhetoric that surrounded this policy and part of that was because as I mentioned before it was challenged right away. so the head of the EPA enter Wheeler I want to give a listen to this is that this is the announcement made yesterday. president trump took office he immediately set in motion a process to remove and replace regulatory burdens that were stifling American innovation and economic development. the Obama administration's twenty fifteen waters of the U. S. definition was at the top of the list so neat this goes beyond saying Hey this is a regulation that we need to to scrap a roll back to give more certainty for farmers and let them know that that they don't to worry about their ponds this goes to like a fundamental goal of the trump administration to roll back president Obama's environmental policy is that fair hello absolutely I mean president trump before he was president was pretty clear that that was going to be one of his top you know agendas twenty if you wish to take office. and you know Wheeler when he was making that announcement yesterday at the national association of manufacturers headquarters in DC he was bragging about how effective his agency the EPA has been a de regulation I think you said they've done they've taken forty six deregulatory actions they have forty five more in the work you know that's just one agency that does include interior that doesn't include other agencies that are also doing deregulation course he didn't say that many of those deregulatory actions are being held up in court and it is very likely that this role back will will face the same sort of challenges and fears net right here compare west with many thanks so much yeah thank you did. in Washington the house took a step in its investigation of president trump the Judiciary Committee approved a resolution it sets ground rules for upcoming hearings on the president's conduct many Democrats call those hearings and impeachment investigation which makes other Democrats uneasy here's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler tried to set the record straight on what precisely is going on here this committee is engaged divest the gauge that will allow us to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment with respect to president trump the Democrats are not speaking with one voice on this when democratic caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries was asked if he believed in impeachment inquiry was under way he responded this way and the committee should be allowed to do their work without getting caught up into semantic distinctions house Majority Leader Steny Hoyer offered a simple no when he was asked of an impeachment inquiry was happening his office later sent out a statement clarifying that he didn't hear the question correctly and said the leader strongly supports chairman Nadler speaker Pelosi is so tired of being asked about it did you cut off impeachment related questions at her weekly press conference I'm not answering any more questions on this subject Lucy insists there's nothing new happening here she says it's a continuation of the work the committee's been doing all year the resolution passed Thursday allows for committee lawyers to question witnesses evidence to be submitted in private and clarifies the president's council can respond to both in writing legislate investigate litigate that's the path we have been on and that's the past they continue to be on Republicans accuse Democrats of using the resolution to camouflage their divisions here's Wisconsin lawmaker James Sensenbrenner you haven't gotten enough evidence to convince a majority of the house of representatives they even authorized an impeachment inquire and that's probably. why the committee hasn't gone to the floor to ask for what the votes aren't there he's right while a majority of house Democrats are on record in support of an impeachment inquiry a significant block of Democrats in competitive districts are not they're trying to counteract some of the party's most prominent voices like New York freshman Alexandria Castiel Cortez who is unabashedly for impeachment I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president knowing his corruption having it on the record so that they can have that stay on their careers for the rest of their lives the competing group of freshmen Democrats met with now there on Wednesday to privately voiced concerns one of them Florida's Donna shillelagh told the Associated Press that impeachment is quote sucking the air out of all the good stuff that we're doing Washington Democrat Primula giant Paul who sits on the Judiciary Committee so the resolution this week is partly an effort to get everyone.

S. southern border just keep coming dangerous overcrowding squalid conditions adults and children held for days and weeks at a time issues that acting inspector general Jennifer Costello describes as urgent and needing immediate attention and action well next week the house Judiciary an oversight committees will be holding hearings on the conditions at detention centers in California congresswoman is Lofgren chairs the house judiciary committees immigration and citizenship subcommittee she joins us now on the line welcome to the program thank you thank you for having me I want to begin by asking about what you want to hear from the administration next week we hope these hearings will accomplish because the the details of what's out there and have been out there for the last couple days the first thing that we're going to do I just spoke with Jerry Nadler earlier today we're going to have an oversight hearing to fully explore the inspector general report so we have the full picture from the inspector general herself what's happening he is really outrageous and unnecessary we're lucky that more kids haven't died but any is too many and several as you know have lost their lives the conditions do not meet legal standards the department is in violation of the law and apparently they have no plans are that we can see a to come into compliance with the standards they are required to meet both under law and under court order now we heard from the head of the union that represents border agents and staff on our sister program morning edition and he pointed the finger at Congress hear his comments Congress is the body that determines the facilities that we have Congress is the body that determines who how we end up treating the children how we treat the people in in our custody in so I can we we only can do with these individuals with the resource that were given is this happening because Congress has failed to appropriate enough money well there is an additional funds going for humanitarian efforts but I I will point out that we have appropriated funds but we also have a full refund that have never been used one of the things that we appropriated in January was funding of something called the family case management program which had a better than ninety five percent appearance rate for people who were in the program to show up for their hearings I when I went to the border I asked about the implementation of the program they just blew it off they didn't follow their obligation to start their program we do not have the capacity to incarcerate every person who seeking asylum until their hearing is heard that has never been the practice in this in this completely unnecessary but that's the way they're operating the system small wonder they have created this mess at the border they don't have a clue what they're doing at the same time the house and Senate did pass a four and a half billion dollar aid package for the southern border and there was a split in your party about that package you voted no on it because it lacked accountability measures for the administration did the house speaker make a mistake by giving in and passing the Senate version without those provisions well I don't think the speaker had a choice I think this is the inspector general's report he is a prime example number one of Y. standards that were in law as part of the appropriations package was so which we need it the activities that are being undertaken ask these border stations violate existing law we've got to require that the standards in law be met and that the judge Jeez standards in the floor as a settlement or in four cents to children congressman where does that leave Democrats is it basically just kind of oversight and drawing attention to the issue or what can you do to really address what is turning into a humanitarian crisis well first this oversight and we are going to engage in that very strongly the other aspect of course is legislation with the Senate Republicans apparently will never reacted misty's on the part of the administration since they control the Senate that Avenue was blocked the third element is the court we have a a very courageous District Court judge in Los Angeles who was already dispatching monitors and I think it's getting ready to make further orders that the administration will not be able to ignore California Democrat Zoe Lofgren chairs the house judiciary committees immigration and citizenship subcommittee thank you for speaking with all things considered thank you hundreds of migrants have died crossing the border illegally this year including a Salvadoran father and daughter who drowned last week a picture of their bodies on the banks of the Rio Grande went viral so why do so many migrants take the risk some say they are frustrated by how long it takes to cross at legal ports of entry as the US limits how many can get in at any one time Houston public media is Elizabeth trough all reports.
