Fresh update on "mississippi" discussed on Here and Now
"To all things here and now rather I want to say a big thank you to everybody who made a pledge yesterday made a donation we did make our $20,000 challenge goals So thank you Very much And actually from NPR in WBUR I'm Tanya Mosley in Los Angeles And I'm Calum borchers in Boston It's here and now Texas today urged the Supreme Court to leave the state's restrictive abortion law in place Texas was responding to the Department of Justice which has filed an emergency application asking the court to block the law It effectively bans abortions in Texas after 6 weeks and it's intensified a long running political fight Some conservatives hope the Texas law is a step toward ending legal abortions with a right leaning majority now on the Supreme Court Here to help us make sense of it all is Steven Vlad from the University of Texas school of law He's an expert on federal courts Welcome Thanks for having me Professor could you just sort of lay out the stakes here Could this Texas case effectively overturn roe V wade Oh it certainly could And I think that's indeed what some of its supporters are hoping it will But also keep in mind that the Supreme Court is already set to hear argument in December In the case out of Mississippi about a Mississippi law that bans just about all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy where Mississippi some other states and even some members of Congress have already asked the court to overrule row So that's what sort of swimming in the water as the Supreme Court decides what to do So there's a lot of moving parts a lot of numbers to keep track of too but for folks who are trying to understand what the stakes are here 6 weeks 15 weeks those are both earlier than sort of what the legal precedent is right now 22 to 24 weeks and that's part of what makes these cases So significant I'm wondering professor if you think the court then is likely to take up this Texas case alongside the Mississippi case Yeah I think it looks increasingly like that's a possibility I mean earlier this week when the federal government asked the justices to lift the 5th circuit state basically to put back on hold the Texas law that had been blocked by a district court they also asked the Supreme Court to leapfrog the Court of Appeals The 5th circuit and take the case on the merits the providers in their separate challenge to the Texas law have asked for the same thing And so yeah I think it's a distinct possibility that as early as tomorrow we're going to hear from the Supreme Court that they actually do want to have the Texas law up before them alongside the Mississippi law Then I think the real question becomes what happens until then are the justices going to leave in place The 5th circuit stay which means SBA would still be an effect which means abortions would still be just about unavailable to Texans from the 6th week of pregnancy onwards Or is the court going to side with the federal government temporarily And allow the law to be frozen while it decides what to do on the merits I think that's the other thing to watch for I'm wondering professor what's your take though is on this notion that now there's a conservative majority on the court That means roe V wade is in jeopardy We know the conservative justices are not a monolith What do we know about how each one of them individually is thinking about this issue Yeah I mean I think there's no question column that at least a couple of them are probably ready to and willing to overrule row and Casey and basically to eliminate any constitutional protection for a right to pursue an abortion at any stage in pregnancy I think it's just not clear if there are 6 of them or even 5 which of course is the relevant number And that's why it might actually be attractive to someone like chief justice John Roberts who's worried about the court as an institution to put the Texas case alongside the Mississippi case and potentially hand down what at least from the court's perspective would be a split verdict where the court might say the Mississippi law is okay 15 weeks is still shorter than what row in case he allowed but there's a meaningful opportunity under the Mississippi law for those who are pregnant to still obtain an abortion but 6 weeks is too short You know you mentioned the concern that chief justice Roberts has about the perception of the court as a political entity and just to put a number on that that was a national survey just last week the set of broad majority of Americans More than 6 and ten feel that way I think the court makes rulings based on politics instead of the law I'm just wondering how you think that might play into the way the court conducts itself in a case like this So they trying to avoid that explicitly So I think again we come back to the court being they and not in it This is as sort of visible and example of this phenomenon we're going to get Are the justices going to do what many of them were appointed to do And eviscerate the right that the Supreme Court recognized 48 years ago in row Or the justice is going to look at the role of the Supreme Court as institution Look at the divisiveness over this issue in the American polity and say maybe the best thing we can do is actually not lean too heavily one way or the other That's why the Texas case ironically now gives the court a way to try to look like it's not acting in a sort of strictly partisan manner to look like it actually is reflecting some kind of deeper principles I think the question is are the justices going to take that invitation And really that's not a question about John Roberts It's a question about the other 5 conservatives That's Steven Vlad a professor at the University of Texas school of law and an expert on the federal courts Professor thanks Thank you Plastic is the new call That's according to a new report out today by beyond plastics at Bennington college They've analyzed ten stages of plastics production use and disposal and find that by the end of this decade.

That's external of the fear of the pandemic. Will his school system. They have a seven percent. Cove it positive rating. They've already lost a schoolteacher. Here's the other dynamic. That people are considering you think children go to school in silos these children who can be carriers of covert nineteen can infect environment such as their parents their grandparents oh the peer groups people that their families associate with and then it becomes an issue of the ecosystem of our safety. Not just the silo of the school system very good. I i will respond. So i'm glad you brought up the delta variant so a lot of people have done some at least initial studies of the delta variant so according to dr roberta debiasi of the children's national hospital. She was asked about ari shapiro from national public radio about the delta verion the national public radio host said wait a second if kids under twelve or not vaccinated is is the delta variant a significant risk and she said quote children are still somewhat between twelve to fifteen percent of all kobe cases and still three to four percent of hospitalizations and we have not seen a huge change in that even with the delta variant. Now i'll add to that. Where the boston globe. Not exactly you know a politicized paper to the right ask. The question is the variant more severe in children. Dr sharon door and epidemiologist at tufts medical center says no. I've not seen any peer reviewed data or data from reliable sources. Suggest that so. I would submit. Doctor that there is no data.

"mississippi" Discussed on The World and Everything In It
"A better person and a lot of people. Sign a lot of different. Cheyenne jimmy and i can see a change in may and that's that's all that matters. Rachel says she may be behind bars but she is a free woman now. South mississippi correctional institution doesn't have a seminary program yet but at brett jones's resentencing hearing a prison unit manager who oversaw jones testified about his behavior. He noted jones earned his ged. That jones got along with others worked hard at various chores like mopping and waxing floors but jones still received a jail sentence after his supreme court appeal. That didn't change. The supreme court decided six three in favor of the state of mississippi justice. Brad kavanagh wrote the opinion joined by justices roberts alito gorsuch and barrett justice. Thomas wrote a concurring opinion. The opinion said the language of miller and montgomery is clear. There is no requirement to make a finding of permanent incorrigible. Ity and so the court is not going to do that here. Not going to add that requirement. Here's a quote from the opinion in some the court has unequivocally stated that a separate factual findings of permanent incorrigible -bility is not required before a sentence or imposes a life without parole sentence of a murderer under eighteen. The opinion went on to say that an explanation on the record meaning. An implicit finding is also not required. Just a soda. My aura filed a dissent joined by justices briar keagan. The descent pointed out that. Although miller and montgomery did not say finding is required. That is what they meant to hold. Otherwise is to gut those cases jail. Wop should be off the table except in extreme circumstances they do not want juveniles who are transient immature to be punished forever. By a snap decision the descent went into great detail about the circumstances of jones's life like the trauma of his childhood. And what happened after the crime like the fact that he tried to revive grandfather with cpr and when he couldn't went to find his grandmother to tell her what happened we weren't able to talk with jones's attorney david shapiro. He said he's not commenting on the case but chrissy noble who argued on behalf of mississippi shared her reaction to the opinion. She has to i. She's pleased that there's now clarity on the issue. The lower courts were confused about how to apply the law but she also had this reaction. My second reaction is probably Not the one you or your listeners would expect but i was actually very extremely upset and as someone who doesn't cry very often. I cried a lot more than i would like to admit not happy. Tears this so-called win was harder to take than the losses because really what the decision means. Is that fred jones. Who was a kid. That was truly letdown. Every step of the way and yes committed a terribly terribly. Tragic crime when he was fifteen is going to die. In present not result is just deeply disquieting to me two weeks after the jones decision. Noble resigned from the attorney general's office. She changed jobs. Switch sides so to speak so now work for the mississippi office of capital post conviction council which provides representation to indigent parties under sentences of death in post conviction proceedings. Noble says all americans should care about juveniles in prison with no hope of a parole hearing. We of course have been kids and many of us have kids. And i will personally say i hope. State legislature addresses the issue in abolishes juvenile life without parole. It's something our legislature has tried to do. Not a hope. One day we'll at the start of two thousand twenty one thousand four hundred sixty five. People were serving a juvenile life without parole sentence. That's according to a survey conducted by the sentencing project as noble mentioned. A state can pass a statute. Barring such sentences and most have mississippi is only one of a few states that has not that could change and even if it doesn't not all hope is lost law professor barry so he could always bring a habeas claim and he could always ask for compassionate release so the governor could come new. I mean there's always a way out. Maybe the court's opinion also cracked a door open for jones and those like him to bring what is known as an eighth amendment as applied claim. Meaning he can argue. The eighth amendment is unconstitutional. In his specific individual case byron. Johnson is head of the baylor institute for studies of religion. He's researched prisons for thirty years. You know a lot of people think the system needs to be cancelled. I'm not one of them. I believe the system needs to be reformed. One of those reforms intermediate sanctions. many judges. Feel like they don't have a menu to look at in terms of what we do so it's either give someone probation are lock them up for significant amount of time but i think the vast majority of judges that i have interviewed would say i would love to have intermediate kinds of things that i could do. But i feel like my hands are tied and probation doesn't give enough. T- intermediate sanctions could include intensive probation. Where they're not just checked in on once every month or two but they're checked in you know repeatedly and you stay with people. Johnson says mentoring is critical in one. Study that we did. The people that were successful post release had mentors in their lives from visits that they had received in prison so in other words i can visit you in prison. And i'm gonna stick with you when you get out. A lot of people make that promise. They're not able to live up to it for those inmates that had mentors in prison and then they carried over they got out. They were much more likely to live. Crime-free continued mentorship after release is key but often that's when it stops. You have people that are willing to go into prisons but you. You very rarely have people that are willing to work with people on the outside. It's a tragic irony in some ways. Working with people in a correction environment is.

From jackson as well as dr llewellyn woodward vice chancellor at the university of mississippi medical center dr woodward welcome to you as well thank you so dr woodward extra. I'd like to start with you. Because you just heard that clip from thomas dobbs who was standing at the university of mississippi medical center in the field hospital. They're now can you describe when the field hospital when it went up. And and what's going on in there right now. Certainly and i was standing right by dr dobbs when he made the comment that you aired just a few moments ago so there's been a lot of activity here on the campus over the last week and we were able last week to open field hospital in the lower level of garage be which is one of our own campus. Parking garages This field hospital was opened in collaboration. In conjunction with dr dobson. His team at the state department of health with me mo with the governor's office kind of all parties involved with the concept that bringing in this Federal de met team would help us in our Management of the overflow of these patients all across the state hospitals are simply at capacity there. They're honestly at the breaking point and The federal resources have been very welcome. And we're very thankful for them but there is that you you could hear it in dr dobbs voice. There is that underlying sense of frustration and one of the things that he said that day that that we didn't hear on the clip aired was in fact. He said you know this didn't have to happen. We didn't have to be standing here where we are today Well nick come to you in a second but dr woodward when you say hospitals breaking point what does the breaking point look like at the university of mississippi medical center of i mean if you were to walk through the halls of the hospital now what would you see so there are many components of that in in you know when you think about things like a health system will will fail and will you know what do we mean. Those are words that sound dramatic and very dire but what we mean by that is number one that our capacity is exceeded and that has actually been the case now for some weeks. This is not new capacity has been exceeded and you layer on top of that. The capacity as a state has been exceeded. We are now in a systems of care For transport and transfer across the state of the critical care kovic patients that this is a mandated Situation by the state. Health officer. By dr dobbs so the capacity has been exceeded. The workforce is fatigued. The workforce is also experiencing their own Challenges on any given day. We may have fifty nurses who either or sick themselves. They're in quarantine. They have family members that are sick. They have others that they have to care for so the the Fragility of the workforce is something that fluctuates a little bit from day to day today and win. We get in this position where everybody is full. You have hospitals across the state that are putting out messages to their community and saying. Please do not come to our emergency room. The emergency room is overrun Please don't come to the emergency room and you have hospitals where They are having to or considering having to tell ambulances. I cannot take another so so that's kind of what we mean about. Getting to the breaking point where you just can't make do any more and dr woodward. Have you ever seen anything like this in your career in mississippi. This is the worst stop for saying. So nick we turn back. Oh i'm sorry. Doctor i just wanna turn briefly to to nick. Forgive cutting you off there. I'll come back to you. I promise but but but nick can you. Can you give us a picture of sort of the state of the pandemic right now in mississippi. I mean today the the weekend total was seven thousand eight hundred thirty nine new cases. Now that's i believe the highest weekend total we've ever had. And the bottom line is cases turned into hospitalizations turned into a intensive care hospitalizations and deaths. So there's just no sign of peak until we see the transmission slowing and declining the state of the hospitals the state of the schools. None of it is going to improve so right now. we're we're kind of grasping in the dark. We really are an uncharted territory. Uncharted territory. But wh why is it uncharted though. Because i mean this is nationwide. This isn't the first search. This is what the the fourth or even fifth surge that the united states has seen since the start of the pandemic. so can you just briefly. Give me some of the factors that you think have gone into mississippi being per hit particularly hard right now. Delta is fundamentally different. I mean it is so much more infectious.

"We had more than eight thousand cars coming from all over the nation in some cases. We had a couple of participant from International that they were on a car off to participate and I can tell you this is a truly Coast to Coast event. We start in one of the hands and we finished in the other with activities every single day Monday the family and this science of this particular cars coming to the codes their activities during the day their activities fairly evening and at some time late at night club music exhibitions trade shows. It's it's a phenomena. It's a truly a community outdoor event and it's amazing how you go either to Basin movies or to go for a walk. Or to Ocean Springs and you see all those cars lining up in the streets and people walk and they see they take pictures and you start talking with the owners and they tell you how long they've been working with a gauge with this type of sport. They tell you how much money they have invested in those cars and you'll be surprised about the amount of money. They they invest to have those cars in bad shape. So it's the phenomenal event. So it's going on October 4th. And we believe is going to be another excellent event for us and then in November another huge activity, which is in Ocean Springs, which is one of our most beautiful tourist cities that we have in the coast. This is the Peter Anderson Arts and Crafts Festival and this is this is going to be November 7th and 8th. This is a weekend and we have more than four thousand bullets lining the street of downtown Ocean Springs with lots of Art Festival and artists that are coming from all over the nation to bring their art and their products and people dead. Go and obviously this year the organizers will take all the necessary precautions to make sure they comply with a healthy and safe event. But again, it's a beautiful one. It turns off Ocean Springs into the epicenter of Arts in the south over that weekend. And again, a lot of families come in and participating Spain in the coast staining not necessarily in a priest. They could stay in any other beautiful hotel anywhere that goes and coming either Friday or Saturday Sunday to the event. So what are some local information that visitors would need to know about Biloxi Mississippi Coastline. Well many of them but always first all the information on Costa Mississippi families or any potential visitor wants to go visit Coastal Mississippi. You have all the information all the information but some fun facts that I think it's as good job. You know that the beach that we call the coast of Mississippi beach is from Biloxi to Henderson point and guess what that is the largest and longest man-made page in the entire nation twenty six miles. It's a beautiful white sandy beach with ample space with many errors and you can bring your car park and then walk to the beach with some areas in which will find sand volleyball courts and nearby downtowns and other attractions that will help. We have a lot of vendors with water sports with areas so you can go and read a lot of beach lounges over there. So that's a great opportunity also and I think I mentioned this since early nineteen-hundreds, you know specifically in Europe for Biloxi was considered the seafood capital of the world. So that was very important and very another good fun fact that for families would be great. Especially. Yep. You take one of our tours in the in the goals in our Mississippi sound is the.

well folks I'm a give you the good news and force can tell you why the good news was good news if you watched the stock market yesterday and the economy the Dow by the way folks yesterday yesterday Friday clam to over eight hundred points in one day that's over three percent and one day close at twenty seven thousand a hundred and ten so fabulous fabulous submarket games yesterday the S. and P. five hundred up two point six percent and the nasdaq you know those big tech stocks just rocking and rolling is up two percent one day and it closed at a very new high so folks you talk about the people that are investment advisors AP here people that will call time on the market other ways they can tell you when you should be in cash and when you should be on the market well I think they're going to be thinking oh my god what's going on now because a lot of those market timer types have been sitting in cash and they've been very happy because we missed some of the market and guess what they're missing some of the games our crystal ball is a good one and I think we're going to come out of this dhol drum that we've been in literally for almost three months and we can look back and say my god I can't believe I went through that with salt and that bungee cord and now we're going to hopefully be rattling and enforce maybe you can share with our listeners maybe some cliff notes on why tomorrow could get so darn well yesterday he yes I agree it's unbelievable how fast this has been happening since the the March low rate we're seeing the stock market jumped by almost forty percent if not higher since since that March low and and the main reason why what happened yesterday was this fantastic jobs report that simply just surpassed everybody's expectations you know kind of just tells you what do we really all now so while unemployment rate is at thirteen point three which is still incredibly high Obree when you look at historic standards the markets the investors they're just riding this wave of enthusiasm and and investors are just all and they're investing for the long term again we've seen a forty percent jump in the US stock market oil has recovered and bounced up a little bit we saw gold fall treasury yields rose a little bit so all this is really signaling that the economy is is certainly picking up much faster than than anybody anticipated given not this virus related recession so I don't know it's a nice way to and this last week I agree it's been think two or three weeks now of of positive returns for the market so to your point abi about trying to time the market it is so difficult and I don't know what kind of call it difficult it's just impossible to do it because I guess correctly time after time so yes the market is volatile it always has been I'd always should be a long term investment who knows what's around the corner but again this is a fantastic news for us are very at first we we talk about stock market investing we generally think of three economies of certainly the US economy the international markets and emerging markets enforce it no one can accurately pick what kind of of of stock they should go into enforced when you and I have not planned at this conversation this morning maybe you can share with our listeners how we go about determining the mix of stocks and bonds and cash based on the financial plan that will share with us what of the personal goals and objectives are what risk they're willing to take on the time horizon and as I say that for us again we have not planned this radio show what do you envision whenever I mention that we saw that with people that have extra dollars they have money in the bank beyond the cash needs for their family and beyond crabby a year's reserves and they have extra dollars that after taxes and after inflation they're earning nothing on their savings account and if you want to take some risk if you will for us maybe share two things one how we mix stocks and bonds and cash in a professionally managed the only portfolio and then force maybe your thought process on how we blend the different kind of real estate into a a recommended portfolio and forgive me for us for sharing that with you hope you can respond because we have not planned this conversation what what do you think anyone ever said those words yes I think that everybody is just unique right so not a single investor that we're gonna visit with Opry is going to have the same biases preferences in previous experiences with their investments and one of the worst thing anybody can do is invest for the long term and certainly make it a short term investment because they invested too aggressively for for their own liking you know given if for example what happened this year we do risk profile questionnaires I think any good advice or should do that which ultimately and talks about people's time horizons how they had before behave previously with investments preferences right we always categorize stocks I've read one big gigantic category but the reality is just like a stock is generally going to be more riskier than a bond and how a bond is generally going to be more riskier than cash within that stock market category you can actually divided up between large U. S. companies value companies small companies emerging markets international all of the above and they're all going to behave very very differently they're going to have various different degrees of risk within those categories and ultimately at a range of expected returns so we designed a a portfolio using all these asset classes and again based on your individual preferences for for how much of a bungee cord you're willing to ride out you know for the long term I can't force and people that are paid to fifty today we have a booklet entitled are you financially organized you can order that online it money talk radio dot com at the top of the.
