Kotlin Multiplatform with John OReilly

"Regarding a desktop and service. what did you start in. Like what technologies were using so simpson so as deputy so. I wanna finish college in one thousand. Nine hundred started with sort fulltime masters speech recognition. You're using your wall things back then. That was sort of. You can do that about sums watching the cotton. Dl talk yesterday. Where a couple of lines of code can do that. But this writing everything from scratch in c in terms of audio processing fifties and and i've been never confronted themselves and there was there was a need for something. Kinda graphical and i don development for awhile and answer. Windows three came out. I think you're on june nineteen ninety and i So cool your concern dusen. Windows graphical is from speech patterns. And mike you're next so forth down again more chance occurrences a low company was starting to do windows and said hey you know obviously not too many people doing that stage said hey. Join to join to join us so i saw that again. That's what started the decade of doing windows see transitioning cpas plus windows. St kfc com hiram. It's funny because obviously was been toying with a proposed for desktop right now sort of i don't know what you call it control back. Go throwbacks ecstasy. That's what's what's old is new again. So when when did you. When did you actually start with With developing kotlin than so. I'm trying to was the announcement. Okay oh in about five years ago now. Is it a country member. anyway there was a natural icon. I you know to be honest. I hadn't i know a lot of people being aware columnist stage. And we're very excited about it. I i was a little bit in the dark. It wasn't something new to me. I haven't even wear and to another coin spos- as in most companies. We probably weren't in a position to start using cotton straight away. You know And i have had. And i have an obligation to restore cocoa puffs. It's actually it's an aug project hasn't up hope people's find somewhat useful. That actually does but for me. Personally i use it i e kind of overloaded somewhat in terms of as a pop from try technology so when the under doctors coronas came up first of all Used to try goes out. And then went. Kalkin emerged start reggie microsoft katainen and similarly montecot from down the road and And then you know as is frequently. The case trying that out. There then became a platform. Say okay now in the workplace okay. This looks interesting. Let's start to use his here and then shortly after that. Then maybe down. The road asked announced. Maybe we start to use it working and we start to use a gradually in africa project and we ended up doing a for various reasons. We did a company rewrite of our project and we started from the ground up dan with cartoon or katelyn underdog extra bonus cortines and so forth. So so is this your first multiplatform project or not so does sage. i wasn't using work. Under gorbachev sort of had supposed to give you know a little bit more brought on their. You know like this. Be working on mobile for eleven years now and i guess over time like many of us you know we would have source accession cross platform. I guess there's always sort of cross pot from monty python but cross platforms kind of sounders. Right once so reproaches. The dab senator in reactnative approaches. And you know over the course of various projects in the previous companies in new product. Monday or somebody coming in that. Have read some headline. This allows you to do everything in one place all your code face. We don't need to have all these separate irish and each time you took sort of had to move. That weren't approved was an us. Disapprove that dickey. We're gonna do competitions. And we had to prove that this wasn't suitable for the type about. We were developing this platform. it's christians. We needed an end user experience. We need But i'm saying that is supposed as a segue to you know I guess what come interesting monte platform. Because when i when cosimo mantra was aware of it i think we're not to those nineteen towards the end of that. It's sort of immediately struck me as okay. This is a pragmatic saint approach finally to the sharing of code across multiple platforms mobile. I've been involved by the way sort of number of initiatives over the years for free. Willion superstars shared code into office. Which is at least somewhat more sane approach but. I don't know if you guys have worked with john. I had to work jay. You know unfortunately goldstone feel like. That's one of those topics that if you can you usually avoid it. I guess yeah if you can avoid using it as well as we various we had to use it in their practical use. And it's one thing using stateless knight ridder touch it can function as in which you maybe media engine i. I just wanted to say on the topic of jane. I think this is. This is going to become a bit more interesting again now. Also with With all the topics around compulsive for desktop because of a bunch of lake system integrations. I dunno things like global hot keys or stuff the. jvm just doesn't really expose. so i think some some of the people at the forefront. They're wanting to write libraries. Yeah they might might have to go that route anyway. Yeah you know if if you're using it. I robot michael state library that district district functions wanting using your compete shared logic with the framework with the training involved with life cycle aspects. Dot is a different story completely debugging crush reports of So haven't gone through. That in us was having seen the sort of attempts sort of pulling in pushing us towards cross. Platform frameworks cottam. Okafor's was immediately. You know the caught cartoon. The cartoon obviously was an advantage a positive from my perspective but more generally i think it was a sane approach it was targeting shared logic target. Had kind of a mechanism in place where you could sort of. This is critical. You could incrementally adopted you know you start putting in for some small area. And i think that generally by today's still is that you start doing that in you take some particular business. Logic may be may be remote. Api endpoint access or so forth and then graduated up from there. And you know there's another kind of a discussion point around how you socialize that how you get in particular iowa's developers interested in an accepting of the but it's the topic himself but certainly certainly from that perspective. At least i think it's very important. Start small and and as the key thing about the type forums. It appealed point was that it had that capability that it it was lended itself to that sort of adoption. Yes so so just to kind of to recap your point. You feel that the that the main difference between cartland multi platform and these other cross platform. Toolkits is is what exactly that you can adopt them. Incrementally that you that you stay away from From what part would you say is kind of the most interesting here. This quite a few different aspects. I think cutting across different areas You know on one hand. I think If you've been involved in from at all you're very kevin gallagher and sort of pre advocates in and you know of this for some time and i think he did. He described it as a sort of perspective risk management as well. You know you're trying to you're trying to avoid locking out upsetting kita one key differentiator. A there's a. There's a number of them. I think but won't different areas. If you decide to use react native reuse flutter or use a variety of other coaches that have been there over. The years is a song that amount of of and and you know it's an all or nothing sort of approaching the with with commodity farm and it allows you to manage. You know you. Can you can sort of put in graduate. Start using it. Then the flip side of that is this touches on a couple of areas obviously but folks on sheriff business logic as ios an underdeveloped. I wanna use the best of breed technologies ideas get companies. That can when i on on iowa. Sony's combine that we have to frame of their likewise android. Cauchon coatings influence worth and that. That's the key difference here. You know that focus that you know it. I think touches on another area. I think we've got sort of a certain level of maturity culture monte platform where i think a good sign some regards that we've gone beyond okay. This is proof of concept What's it about renown sort of digging deeper into so architectures and different approaches. You can use. And i think this is is little bit as sort of a simplistic way sometimes mentioned quotas just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do something so i think we've be careful. You know it is. Its main sort of setting point is is as focused on shared logic. I see a lot of discussions pushing further up the stack. You know the view model and potentially you you hear in the context composed nowadays. of course. why can't we to compose. and. I think there's a danger to honest. Econ generally too much of a dangerous on too far up and then it just becomes another spot framework. I think our approach in general

"That she's pregnant, but not with his kid, you know, and he asked for just one of the watchers kids and they have an argument. She's like. No, No, no, no. Don't you remember the other night? What we Okay, He backs off a little bit. But that's that's a rare instance where you actually have. A woman. You know you mentioned by name that is connected to this episode. But it's but it's Noah's mother. I mean, what is what is the implication here? That that Noah himself Wass Neville? Um Well, they're there. That's a good question, because If you ask the average person who really wide there there into the book today. They're going to link it to Genesis six, which is obvious. And there's always this question. How do we get? How did we get enough Aleem like after the flood Because we got the nestling here. First versus Genesis six and we have a flood. Then later on in the Torah numbers chapter 13 versus 32 33. The Moses and Joshua and the Israelites After the accident. They run into the product who are very tall it if the divers actually said beyond a Kmart from monopoly So it creates this whole question like how in the world could be if we just had this struggles and everybody killed And the assumption was that you know, we can't have Noah Noah and his family survived the flood. So we can't have this women go through. No, because Genesis 69 so that no was You know, upright, you know, pure his generation. Now. The issue is that isn't convincing to a number of ancient Jewish writers because The word for generation. They're just six. Is not the word for literal, You know, Descendants, geology. It's the word for generations that we would use something like, you know. Hey, I I'm from the generation of the sixties. You know what it was. I'm not related to all the people who were sixties done from that time period. That's what the actual actual word isn't just 69. So there were Jewish writers who looked at that and said OK That leaves the door open for no or somebody in his family to be sort of the blame here than the one through whom the line comes, and some Jewish writers actually thought. Itwas no. Didn't cool him out. There's a least one text that has no as a giant. It's very late Rabbinic tax. It's not. It's not his old dead sea scroll stuff, but it shows you that there were ancient Jewish writers that considered this one of the explanations for how we get carefully after the flood. But that that's that's what usually other writers defaulted to other explanations. For how this would be. But there were some who thought that and since you have this this episode in this text in Genesis apocryphal works. The writer has Noah's parents arguing about this. Again that shows you that that writer At least entertained the idea, even though he has, but no it up tonight. There are other books that have Noah's an unusual child to put it mildly. Not tall or anything like that. But No sort of glowing, scared and fiery eyes. Crazy hair, You know, just stuff. It's unusual again what it shows you that there were There were people in the Jewish tradition. That looked at Noah and did not exempt from consideration as Faras. How we get naturally after the flood they considered him As a candidate. It was just one of several. But it was a view out that that would change that would change everything. Michael State will take a time out top of the hour and we will open the phone lines at the bottom of the next hour. Dr. Michael Hauser Heizer rather my guest. The book is a companion to the book of Enoch Years. Yes, I've seen all good people taking us into the brake on coast to coast Am Take us straight.

"In the future of public radio and the listeners of Lady Public Radio. I'm Michael State. Another hot day is ahead today and it continues to be a spare the Air Day another alert today. In fact, they spare the air alert will be in effect through Monday for higher than normal pollution levels. Also you're being asked. We're being asked to conserve power again today. A flex alert will go into effect at three this afternoon. Apparently, we did a pretty good job yesterday afternoon on state power officials would like us to continue that conservation. So that they don't have to impose any of those dreaded rolling blackouts. Current reading in San Francisco 72 looking for a high of 95 in the city by the Bay Today, it's six or seven. This's weekend edition from NPR NEWS, Louie Garcia Navarro. Thanks for being with us this morning, Facebook is in the spotlight again. It's been promising to take major steps to limit disinformation and interference before the election. And it promised that after this election, it won't allow post claiming false victory by the candidates. Facebook has been facing a double whammy of election disinformation recently, with some of it on the site coming from political campaigns and others from foreign or domestic bad actors trying to influence us But does what we see on Facebook actually impact the way we vote. We're joined now. By Jessica Fizzle. She is a professor at the University of New Mexico who studies thie intersection of social media and political behavior. Welcome. Thank you, Lulu. Thank you for having me It is a pleasure to have you much as you know, has been said about Facebook's role in politics and elections. What does Facebook really have an impact how much? Two people actually take away from what they see on the site. So we know several things. We know that people who are politically engaged online are usually also politically engaged offline, so the information that we encounter definitely feeds into sort of our political ecosystem. And impacts the way that we behave in real, you no feet on the ground, traditional political participation. We also know that the information that we encounter on Facebook Has an effect on what we call agenda setting or the issues that we think are important at any given time, and that could have implications for the issues that we take into the voting booth with us or the things that guide our electoral decisions. Does your research then show that people would change their vote based on these sort of incidental contacts. No, it doesn't. Changing someone's vote is a very difficult thing to dio. Because you have all of these other socializing, forces, religion, gender, education, region, personal experiences. All of these things come into play when we act politically it foot, however, make you think about certain things that make you feel. Ineffective or upset and sad about democracy. And maybe then you don't go but the likelihood that you bump into some piece of information on Facebook and it changes who you vote for. Is very unlikely. You talk about the sociological forces that are based on your gender, your religion your age. What kind of person do we know is more likely to be affected by something they see or read on Facebook? Is there a particular demographic that is more vulnerable to being influenced? So usually when we remodeled this stuff and look it empirically. There's a number of things that we control for many of the things that you just listed, but also political interest. How engaged they are. How invested how perhaps knowledgeable, they are about the political world around them. It's the people who have lower levels of political interest who are most susceptible to incidental exposure to political information, whether it's good, well crafted quality news reporting or miss and disinformation campaigning. But aren't those also the people that are less likely to vote? Perhaps, and there is some research by Latisha Bode that shows that it's possible. That people who go online and bumped into information and start to participate lately online might sort of opens up a gateway to higher levels of offline participation. For example, if your online and you see a friend that you trust him, really like sharing information about black lives matter, for example. You think that might be interesting and you trust this person? And so perhaps, Then you dig into more information about it, and you become activated by it. And maybe even it's an issue that resonates enough who you are that it drives you to participate. It drives you into voting. There's been a lot of the news recently about steps that Facebook has said it will take is taking to sort of combat disinformation. Some of that has to do with taking down particular pages. It has also said it will limit new ads political ads in the week before the election. Is that enough? So I'm happy that they're doing something what they're doing, however, I don't believe is enough. I think that they should go further than one week and perhaps take a toke for months and pulled down the political ads and let Facebook be a place of social engagement and discussion and sharing among people, but not necessarily a place where people are able to pay for that speech. It would also be nice if instead of being retroactive in the information that they take down and remove that there was some way that they could be more proactive in keeping that information from Appearing in the first place because we know that when people are exposed to disinformation and misinformation that it's quite difficult to actually correct that There's still some lingering seed of doubt about that issue that you saw, even if you've seen that that has been fact checked and proven to be wrong. Jessica Weisel, a professor at the University of New Mexico. Thank you so much. Thank you..

S. Congress before entering the political fray as a Republican don bacon had a distinguished military career serving in combat in Iraq and ending his airforce career with the rank of general now he's on the frontline of partisan politics a staunch defender of Donald Trump in the face of impeachment and the conservative Democratic Party effort to remove him from office the Senate trial the president has become yet another exercise in poisonous partisan politics it's unlikely to end in a conviction but it is likely to have a major impact on US politics in this presidential election year will Republicans come to regret that on wavering loyalty to Donald J. trump well congressman don bacon joins me now on the line from Omaha Nebraska welcome to home to work thank you Sir it's a pleasure to be with you today let me begin with a simple proposition if Donald Trump violated American values and more specifically violated the US constitution he should be held to account shouldn't he any president that violates the constitution Eric does high crimes and misdemeanors as stated in the constitution should be impeached but I do not think the president has broke as done the high crimes and misdemeanors and I think it was about a totally partisan impeachment but yes any president who violates our constitution should be held responsible so given the importance of June process and given the fact that the house of representatives has approved articles all of impeachment how do you feel about a president who calls this the greatest con job in the history all of America a total hoax we have to remember that not a single Republican in the house support it the evidence wasn't there for impeachment we actually had up to four Democrats depending on which article although actually voted against their own party on us my view of it is is that the president should not of sub mentioned Joe Biden or the bidens two presidents Leschi in Ukraine I don't think it was the wise prudent thing to do but any of the aid what to DO crayons a week before the law required there was no investigation the minds of the president asked for and you create a president said he felt no pressure to do so and I think you put those three things together this is not an impeachable funds I think we could critique and maybe criticize it but there was a law broken and in the end of the long was followed by the president well you've already piques my interest by admitting that you think that some of things Donald Trump did were were to say the least on why is why is it that so many fellow Republicans not least those in the Senate who now act as jurors in this trial are refusing to countenance the idea the Donald Trump did nothing wrong what you find too often and I'm sure it happens in other countries while this partisan debates that these issues become black or white a hundred or zero in my view of it is a thought I would rather have the president trump Tucker presence Lansky about what Russia is doing the doughnuts grease region what they've done in Crimea how their nefarious actions are undermining Ukraine how we can help them and one other aid does Ukraine need our preferred that kind of level of communication with the president however we have we have to be also candid that the bidens are vulnerable on this they were not a book I they're not above the law either I don't think this is so for the president to bring up to present someone ski I don't think it's appropriate to bring along opponents yeah all right to other all four leaders what would be my thing yeah well I I'm listening carefully to what you're saying and you say that what trump did was not appropriate but the fact is the prime FAC case suggests it was far worse than not appropriate that walls eight quid pro quo at work here the message from Donald Trump in that July phone call with president Zelinsky was quite clear that we need you to do us a favor do us a favor those of words directly from the transcript and the favor walls but you have to investigate the bidens activities in Ukraine and you have to give us whatever dot you can on the democratic party's activities in Ukraine before will countenance a meeting for you Mr Zelinsky in the White House all before will release the four hundred million dollars in military aid that is a quid pro quo well I think you can make a case for quid you can make a case for pro quo because in the end there was no investigation of biting what was said and the military aid well aid that the president Obama refused to give of sword beach are present but delaying aid the previous president refused to get out of hand but that aid was given a week before the law required and I would say that the quote you gave that will right before he asks the Ukrainian president to investigate that computer for the firm that may have had data on the emails it was later in the conversation the bite was brought up but again I'm not here to defend bringing up the Biden family in this phone call I preferred having conversations at a higher level for leaders but there was not a war broke that aid got to Ukraine a week that before the law required if I may say so congressman you know as well as I do that is irrelevant as senator Richard Blumenthal is said just the other day this case is clear president trump tried to trade away on national security for a personal political favor merely soliciting a bride is bribery and ineffective criminals are still criminals so present Slutsky don't even know that the aid was being withheld during the phone call he's set himself but he felt no pressure in there was no investigation so yes we critique the president Reagan assault I think so I think this is what we have committee hearings for oversight hearings but when the president of you crazy called zero pressure I don't even know about to be honest Homer's mental what what Mr the it it's it's not relevant what Mrs Elaine ski thought about what was going on what is clear from not just the transcript but from older corroborating evidence we've got from senior diplomats Gordan song when William Taylor and many others is that there was a quid pro quo plan it may not have worked it may not have been effective but it was there and it represents a standard which is high crimes and misdemeanors certainly according to the house of representatives and surely what is now needed is a proper meaning full trial in the Senate well I think most people disagree with you there because the first well the the for this is that were brought in one they're very partisan when one of the witnesses said she could even walk on the same side walk with the trouble to all but the fact is as you dug into the subcommittee hearings almost every once it was hearsay I was presumption no one actually had a direct evidence of the president insisted on it but again I'm I heard the phone perfect abroad one I I do think that we should roll back though and part of this discussion in America should be about what the blinds were doing why wasn't that hunter Biden was getting a fifty thousand dollar a month a job to work for you your job title you yeah I don't know how long if I may say so they had no bearing mmhm earlier on you said look we shouldn't be playing partisan politics with this your now wanting to focus only on the bidens which seems to me an extremely partisan way of looking at this I'm asking you a much more fundamental constitutional point of constitutional point for a congressman this one hundred senators doing bad the other day in the Senate if I may congressman a hundred senators stood up they took the oath and they said they would administer impartial justice when you have Republican senators like James in hall for saying this is gonna go nowhere before a single witness is being called before any testimony is being heard one kind of a trial is that it isn't any kind of trial well there surely are centers of both sides to state their position senator Santorum Sanders return for president this call for his impeachment senator Warren house I believe also summer clothes are so you have people on both sides of the aisle that a stated there are assumptions whether guilty or not guilty which also some senators are saying I will work with some of the evidence so by and large the son of that you know those servers can each with their their own jurors on us they could have a substance or not they can they can have a look at the good will of this.

After nearly a month of waiting people will soon be able to read some of the investigators finding about that probe the Russia probe in their own words that on that coming up on morning edition secretary, pardon me, attorney general William bar is going to press conference later this morning. We plan to do coverage of that in the six o'clock hour the press conference itself scheduled to begin about six thirty and ongoing continuing coverage read through the morning of the release of the redacted version of the Muller investigation report. Foreign by the way will be preempted later this morning between nine and eleven. So we can bring you NPR coverage. Whether picture looks very sunny today and warm high slow seventies near the ocean to the mid eighties inlet, southern Sacramento valley, similar stuff sunny. Highs from eighty to eighty five now morning edition on K QA D at seven after four. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. In washington. And I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. After a nearly two year long investigation and nearly a month. More of waiting people soon be able to read some of the findings of the Russia investigation. Investigators own words, the Justice department is getting ready this morning to release a redacted version of special counsel. Robert Muller's report about twenty sixteen election interference publishing houses are getting ready to release the report in book form, Washington, DC bars are touting drink specials and our national Justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson has been practicing her speed reading skills. So she can read this report and report on it throughout the day. She has agreed to take a few minutes to join us this morning Kerry. Thanks a lot. Good morning, David. So we seem to know the bottom line here. No Americans have been charged with conspiring with the Russian government over the last presidential election. President Trump himself is not going to be charged with obstruction of Justice. So with all of that in mind, what is today, and this report all about what are we gonna learn there's a lot more to this report than those two end point. You mentioned we think reports about four hundred pages that does not include tables or appendices in. We know it contains not only conclusions. But how investigators have analyzed the evidence? And there's a lot of it. We know there have been five hundred search warrants twenty eight hundred subpoenas five hundred witness interviews. There's a lot more meat on this phone and remember always seen so far is just that four page letter from the attorney general Bill bar his letter just contained some partial quotes from this report nothing else from the investigators themselves four hundred pages. I mean, I know some of it's going to be redacted. But it's a lot of materials as you get ready to dig into whatever we get what exactly are you going to be looking for what's at the top of your list. First of all most people in the US seem to agree with the judge. Department and the intelligence community that Russia did interfere in the election. It wanted to help Donald Trump and hurt his opponent Hillary Clinton. I wonder if this report is going to detail how high up that scheme went and whether there are any surprises in store for us. We do know that Russians have been charged with hacking Democratic National Committee and some Clinton aides in with blasting propaganda on social media in two thousand sixteen but the charges that have come out so far have left a lot of open questions about line Americans were charged with conspiracy. David how does that Trump Tower meeting in twenty sixteen come in? When Trump aides met with Russians, and what about Donald Trump's praise for WikiLeaks during the campaign in for his call to Russia, if you're listening, maybe find the Clinton emails for these reporters, I guess it's reminder, even though the attorney general bar send his letter that no one within Trump's inner circle conspired with Russia. I mean, it could be a lot of nuance here a lot of those contacts. And what exactly Muller was looking at? Absolutely. And I think that's going to be one of the most closely read portions of this report if we get to see it. So there's been all this back and forth since attorney general bars letter last month about obstruction the attorney general wrote that prosecutors did not conclude that the president committed a crime. But I mean Muller's team he said also did not exonerate the president. How have you interpreted that and how big a role that today? I've been told there's a big section of this report on obstruction of Justice. It's going to include some things we already know things. The president did in public like firing them former FBI director, Jim Komi and also the president's tweets about Justice department leadership that remember dozens of current and former White House aide sat for interviews with these investigators there should be some new details here and who evidence about obstruction. I'm hearing from sources the special counsel. Does explain why he didn't make a call one way or another on obstruction? That will be very interesting to read and learn in part because in absence of information some conspiracy theories have flourished a lot of other theories of flourish. It's important to know what these investigators found and why from their own words, but I guess as we get ready for this. We should we should just note. The fact that we're not going to read all the words from Robert Muller and get everything there's going to be a lot redacted here blacked out text. I just want to play some tape. This is Turney general bar talking about that recently to congress identified four areas that I feel should be redacted. And I think most people would agree. The first is grand jury information, six material. The second is information that the intelligence community believes would reveal intelligence sources and methods the third or information in the report that could interfere with ongoing prosecutions and finally. We intend to redact information that implicates the privacy, a reputational interest of peripheral players where there's a decision not to charge them to carry John. How significant is what we will not see. Well, remember, the attorney general in his confirmation hearing this year pledge transparency within the bounds of the rules and the law if he does not fill that promise he's going to hear about it from members of the press and from Democrats in congress. It's not clear how peripheral figures like Donald Trump junior Jared Kushner will fit in here, we can read anything about them or they considered people whose privacy need to be protected because they have not yet been charged with crimes that's going to be high area. So as I mentioned this investigation, it's it took almost two years and the hallway President Trump has attacted as he has called a witch hunt. He's been trying to discredit the investigators. Do you feel? Like that campaign, and what he has said repeatedly has had an effect on the credibility of this report. And the report and how the public will receive it. I'd like to wait and read this report before I make judgments I will say Democrats in congress are mistrustful of the attorney general just this morning. David Chuck Schumer in the Senate and into Pelosi in the house are demanding that Robert Mueller, the special counsel himself testify in public because they feel there's a crisis in confidence in in via Torney general Bill bar, given what they call some of his partisan action surrounding this report. Okay. Of course, carry is going to be working all day on the reporting in this bring the attorney general's press conference to live later this morning. And once we have the redacted report will have special coverage from NPR news with a lot of detailed analysis. NPR national Justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson. Thank you so much. Thanks, david. Next report on a side effect of a refugee crisis, hundreds of thousands of row hinge refugees have fled me. And mar many are a neighboring Bangladesh they set up shelters, and what used to be a nature preserve which is not so good for preserving nature. What is now the largest refugee camp in the world stretches across a migratory path for elephants and Jason Bobi on reports. The result has been deadly. It was two in the morning densely crowded part of the Kuta along refugee camp. When is love bolted awake. People outside were yelling the walls of his shelter were shaking. He could hear bamboo snapping as if someone was ripping apart a neighboring hut. His first thought was burglars ahead. My neighbor was screaming who is hitting my house. Who is there was responding willow wanted to go outside to help his neighbor, but his wife stopped him saying they will kill you. By the mother there robbers and people inside the other houses were screaming. Then we heard the sound of the elephant the elephant was knocking down everything the Ranga refugee shelters are made of tarps and woven. Bamboo mats tied to bamboo frames. The elephant plowed through several huts was eating a pot of rice that it's spilled the Dave out of that. I will have one of the men pulled the tail of the elephant elephant turned and went away. And it was then that LaSalle the elephant had stepped on his neighbors chest killing him. We'll is neighbor was one of fourteen people all but one of the refugees who've been killed by elephants over the last year and a half there. Only a few hundred Asian elephants left in the wild in Bangladesh the animals, which can weigh up to twelve thousand pounds or. Listed as endangered by the international union for conservation of nature. They're only president a couple of areas of Bangladesh. But one of those areas is exactly where hundreds of thousands of her hangar now taking shelter and sprawling refugee camps in two thousand seventeen the refugees fled. What the UN says was a campaign of ethnic cleansing in Myanmar against them. The UN refugee agency UNHCR has helped set up elephant response brigades among the refugees to deal with the animals if they do wander into the camps. We are not to digitally an organization that gets involved with conservation. Paul McCallion works with UNHCR their office in Cox's Bazar Bangladesh, we own volved with the elephants here simply due to the fact that the may great repass has been cut off with the influx of refugees. The elephants are ending up in the camps. He says because they're instinctively trying to follow a path that they've taken in the past and their DNA, and they just keep we'll keep naturally trying to take that route. He says the elephants travel each year back and forth between me and Marin Bangladesh, forging local education McCallion says the elephants aren't naturally aggressive, the fatal encounters occur. He says when an elephant ends up cornered in a camp. The elephant can be concealed trap can feel confused. Once it's behind the shelters wants us behind the people. That's when it gets to stage where the animal will could react in a very aggressive way. The main goal of the elephant responses to keep the animals out of the camps in the first place dotted around the camp star tall thatched watchtowers on spindly van boo frames. They look like fire lookouts our guard towers, nor Salaam, who's with the elephant response team in another part of the Khuda belong camp says they use the towers to watch for elephants might be approaching the settlement. If one of the animals does enter the camp Salama's colleague whistles to summon other members of the team in five yet about in. The training. You were taught surround the elephant on three sides one area. Open the elephant to move back towards the edge of the camp.

"We're all things considered is just a few minutes from now with Mary, Louise Kelley and Ari Shapiro again. That's coming right up. We do expect a chance of showers after midnight forecast. Wise a chance of showers Saturday morning, then showers likely in the afternoon, highs in the mid fifties. Good evening. I'm Michael state with a K Q E D listener perspective from filmmaker Maria. Liam who says politics dominates, the news and too many. That's not a good thing, especially when both seem so disconnected from the real concerns of everyday people Maria Leone has this perspective I catch up with current events during my morning commute. I hear that the world is falling apart. I hear that people who are not me are in distress. Terrible story after therapy. Story day after day. It's not going to stop. So I changed the station. Listen to music instead. But it's hard to ignore news that hits close to home a Venezuelan American woman, and they have lived through the devastating deterioration of my homeland for the last twenty years. I hear that someone tweeted about my country. I see that someone replied to that tweet with another my friends ask what the hell is going on in Venezuela, and I am speechless. Suddenly the future of my people is murky and disposable like a tweet like a mighty racks soaked in politics during the government shutdown. I was on the phone with an immigration agent. Trying to find out how the news might affect my family. She was helpful and they thanked her for continuing to work without pay. She said there are a lot of people out there who still need help. Despite the politics, I felt lucky that in all the chaos, I could still speak to a human acumen. That's not a story under. Radio or an immature on my phone. But a person politics seem so disconnected on approachable people on the other hand are folks with families and jobs and homes or often people with none of those blessings politics are tweets politics are wolves USA symbols and agreements made behind closed doors. It turns out that news are not stories happening in faraway lands. They are situations that affect our communities with real consequences. There's no headline that doesn't affect me or us the people going to work to get a paycheck, the people working for no pay the people longing to be healthy enough to work, everything affects us, and all we have is one another. It's us the people vs politics with a perspective. I'm Marie Eliane. Maria Leone is a filmmaker. And we invite.

"michael state" Discussed on KQED Radio

"Until about five fifteen. Eighteen or so. PD looks like it's headed towards chapter eleven bankruptcy. One person could help them governor Gavin Newsom, so will he bailed them out? I mean does he wanna be recalled? That's what happened to the last governor when PG anyone to Baker. I'm John Sepulvado. Newsome's dilemma on the next California report. The California report at five fifty one and six fifty one on public radio. I'm Michael state at seven after four this is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In washington. DC? Good morning. We have on the line of democratic members of congress who met with President Trump. The president has not been meeting last few days with democratic leaders. He did sign legislation assuring federal workers at their back pay whenever the shutdown ends. And he met with a small group of less senior Democrats from an organization that calls itself, the problem solvers caucus, Congressman Tom Swazi of New York is one of them. He represents part of New York City and suburban Long Island, congressman good morning. Hey, good morning. Steve. What was that meeting like? You know is a a heady thing whenever you go to meet with the president you go into the White House. And we went actually in the situation room. We wanted to make sure there was no press. They're quite frankly. Okay. And you know, I'm part of a group. I'm the vice chairman of a group called the problem solvers caucus. It's twenty four Democrats twenty four Republicans trying to find common ground to solve problems which is not enough of that going on in the country right now. So there were seven Democrats and six Republicans and the president and the vice president were there, and you know, he listened to us we listened to him and we're trying to push things forward. Well, there was a previous effort to invite over Democrats, and nobody came to that one because it was seen as an effort to just peel off democratic votes by the president was the president trying to peel you off we made it very clear from the get-go that we're not gonna be peeled off that you know, we support the leadership the Republicans sport their leadership. And you know, we believe that we just have to start talking to each other and working together we need to we emphasized as has the democrat. Leadership we need to reopen. The government. There's too many people suffering that just doesn't make any sense to keep the government closed like this. And I mean, you just mentioned in your report that they signed a letter of legislation yesterday that they're they're gonna pay all the federal officials have all the federal employees when they come back. I mean, the presence of businessman you're paying everybody. Anyway, let's bring them back to work. Oh, because they're getting they're going to get paid for doing nothing. These these number of weeks now. Right. But let's let's talk about how this would go because you're saying the democratic position as open the government. Now, we'll talk about the wall later, we'll talk about border funding later, I suppose the situation from the president's point of view is he needs to save face. Are you willing to offer him anything to save face? You know, I think it's a matter of building relationships and building trust that people recognize that if we can get the government open, we can find a common ground way forward. You know, not representing the problem hours or the Democrats. You know, I'm not in a position to be able to negotiate or anything like that. But I've said in my own district. This is Tom Swazi. Speaking not representing anybody else. Let's do border security. We can have more physical structures. But let's also do the radar and let's do the personnel. And let's fix the ports of entry. Let's do all these different things. And let's finally resolve some of these problems regarding the dreamers in regarding a temporary protect well. Let me ask you about that. Congressman you just said we can have physical structures. You're saying in effect. Well, okay. Mr President, there's already some walls and a lot of fence on the border. We can have some more wall. We can have some more fence, that's fine. But your speaker Nancy Pelosi has said the wall is an immorality because of what it is. Because of the symbol that the president has has made it how do you find common ground when your party's position is that the wall is an immorality. I think that the language that both sides are using the price of the language. The president users that makes it as simplistic as the wall the wall the wall, some sort of simple solution and the language of immorality makes difficult. That's one of the reasons we're in this difficult situation is the language people are using. But that's why you need to have meetings like this and people talk. To each other and trying to build a sense of common. Ground knows it easy to do. No. It's very difficult. It's it's very hard to do in the context of this massive vortex of of price point and counterpoint. But that's what your job is. You're supposed to be someone governing. You're supposed to try and find this common. Ground to get things done congressman as you may have heard there's a new NPR PBS NewsHour Miras poll out which finds the president's approval rating has slipped even further down and something like fifty seven percent of voters surveyed say they definitely will not vote for him for president in twenty twenty. Do you assume that your working assumption that the longer this shutout shutdown goes the worse, it is for the president that he's weaker every day? I think I think it's worse for the president. I think it's worse for the country. And I think it's worse for the congress as well. Everybody's second tired of people just fighting with each other. They want us to get something done. This shutdown is bad for human being's lives that are not getting paid. It's bad for everybody bad for the Democrats as well. It's bad for for the institution of congress. It's bad for Democrats bad for Republicans. It's bad for America. Congressman thanks for the time. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you so much. That's Congressman Tom Swazi democrat of New York state NPR political editor Domenico Montanaro has been listening along with us. And he's on the line. Domenico, good morning. Steve. What are you here there? You know, there's a few things one he saying we have to reopen the government even this is the part of that problem solvers caucus. They're there to try to talk to the president unlike the democratic leadership right now, which is saying come to our side come to our position in even these people somewhat more in the middle are saying look first thing is reopened the government. No conversations about the wall or any physical barriers beyond that to start with. So that's the threshold for a lot of even middle of the road. Democrats. He is however saying that more physical structures as you pointed out is something that can be talked about, and is something that Democrats in the past have voted for. But you kind of hear the. The contours of a deal that emerged there, which is something we've been talking for while which is physical structures for some kind of legislation when it comes to dreamers. Those kids brought to the United States illegally as children now. Some of them many of them are dull and this language of immorality that democratic leadership has used and Nancy Pelosi has used that might be a step too far for some moderate Democrats for some moderate Democrats. But the key here, I suppose is the president willing to make tactical surrender or are Republicans who control the Senate willing to push back on the president. Right. And I think that that's the key thing here is whether or not Senate Republicans will intervene in a way to try to get the president to move from what he's had as an intractable position. Because as you said what is the way out for him to save face Dominica? Thanks very much. You're welcome. That's NPR's. Domenico Montanaro, right. Of course for American families. A single paycheck is their margin of error and that. Includes many federal workers, nearly fourteen percent of the federal employees who are not getting paid make less than fifty thousand dollars per year. That's more than one hundred thousand people forced to make difficult decisions during this record-setting shutdown and pears lay the fato talk to some of them. Amy fellows has been skipping meals for days now because I wanna make sure my kids have that food. She's a correctional officer in the southwest for the Federal Bureau of prisons. I reach your on Skype. She didn't get paid on Friday as a single mom three kids, a ten year old a three year old and a twelve month old she needs every check for the families basics. She makes forty nine thousand dollars a year. I do live paycheck to paycheck. So you know, I was able to pay for my rent and my utilities for the first of the month. But now have nothing in my Bank. She has less than nothing and negative balance of four hundred dollars, and she's already worrying about February's rent and as a central personnel. She still has to work sometimes sixteen hour days, but to work. Chance to pay for daycare. She can't afford another impossible choice. She could lose your job. If she calls in sick too many times to watch her children. I've actually had to call out three times because I can't afford daycare. And I don't know what I'm going to be doing, you know, tomorrow fellows could already be facing disciplinary action for the time. She's missed and to keep your family afloat during the shutdown. She's thought about getting a second job, but she already works fulltime and has to get approval from the bureau of prisons for outside work. She's also thought about alone, but she needs good credit to keep her job. I apply for a loan and the government shutdown. I can't pay the loan. It's going to go on my credit. So we're kind of stuck in a bind. We can't do anything. You know, I thought of the possibilities of getting credit cards. But then it's another Bill that I'm not going to be able to pay and jeopardize losing my job for sure by not having good credit. If the government doesn't really thin soon, she might have to quit her career in law enforcement and find something else to support her family. She says politicians are. Treating this like a game where one side or the other wins. I don't think they're realizing how many families are affecting. It's it's impacting so many people and to think that it's okay and just send us law enforcement back into work everyday. I think it's very selfish selfish of politicians. She says this week Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said this on Fox News about the shutdown. You got two bad choices. Here continue the stalemate and see parts of the government shutdown. It will be inconvenient, and it can create problems into the federal workforce. I'm sorry caught up in this mess, but the real damage is people coming across the border for the government workers affected. They say the word inconvenient does not capture the dire situation they're in and they say they're experiencing real damage. The real estate website, Zillow estimates that federal employees were not getting paid four hundred and thirty eight million dollars in rent and mortgage payments each month and with February first.
