Diplomats Return To State Department As Biden Administration Begins

"The new administration is also promising to rebuild the State Department. They've brought back some diplomats who were forced out in the early days of the Trump administration to help But there are big gaps to fill as NPR's Michele Kelemen reports and Morita tourist served for a decade in the foreign service until she quit just over a year ago. She says she was just too frustrated with the Trump administration, pulling out of international organizations and sidelining career diplomats. At the time I was serving at the U. S mission to the U. N So had a front row seat to this isolation. So you know from the Paris accords, so leaving the Human Rights Council and also just the day to day sort of instructions. We were getting really to treat. Many of our allies like anniversaries were engaging with them and dialogue. We were bullying our way through for Chris Richardson. His concern started when Trump ran for president talking about banning Muslims from coming to the U. S. Have been horrified by that, and then he got elected and you know we did this to send cable against it. But my issue was is that after the dissent cable came out, we all kind of just moved on to the next outrage. But I never got over that outrage. Richardson and immigration lawyer left the foreign service in 2018 and got involved in lawsuits against Trump's travel ban. He even wrote in affidavit that made its way to the Supreme Court. So for me I felt that I needed to get out there. I needed Teofilo and I needed to stand up for American principles because I thought that then President Trump had gone so dangerously astray. From what our values and what our character is. As a country that I needed to make a stand. Biden has reversed the ban and has talked about the need to rebuild the State Department. Richardson, who's black. Says the problems that state are deeper than trump. He's worried about the lack of diversity. Tourists whose Puerto Rican agrees. We're facing a huge diversity deficit and a brain drain at the State Department. So I do think it's important that we look back and see and try and recruit those who have left to come back to show that, you know. Actually, this is not how the State Department typically runs President Biden has brought back some divers, former foreign service officers tapping Linda Thomas Greenfield to be the next U. S ambassador to the U. S. And as Rose, a A to be an undersecretary of state. Those are political appointees. There are stricter rules about bringing career diplomats back into the foreign service and 35 year. Veteran diplomat Tom Countryman says the secretary of state has to be judicious in combining Promotions for those who have labored in the vineyard under very difficult circumstances the last four years. As well as bringing back those of exceptional quality. It's gotta be a mixture of both countrymen was among those forced to retire at the start of the Trump administration. He encouraged other career foreign service officers to stay saying a foreign policy without professionals is an amateur one. I'm happy that their hard work and their patriotism will again be respected. Rather than denigrated by the White House. At his confirmation hearing, senators question Tony Blinken on how he will overcome the partisanship of Mike Pompeo is 10 Year at the department. It's not simply a matter of bringing people back filling the slots there no empty Is making sure that the best of our ability we're building a workforce that has skill said To deal with the incredibly complex challenges we're facing that are very different.

How Do You Distribute A Vaccine To Suspicious Citizens?

How Do You Distribute A Vaccine To Suspicious Citizens?

"Corona virus vaccine to millions of Americans who may be suspicious of authority or on the fringes of society. Especially when those people are among those most at risk of covert 19. Dr. Julie Morita has been thinking and writing about these problems for months as Chicago's former health commissioner, and now she'll have an opportunity to shape these policies on a national level as part of President elect Biden's covert response, team Doctor Marina Welcome to all things considered. Thanks for having me, Ari. Well, let's start with this question of how you build confidence in a vaccine when there is so much suspicion and disinformation circulating. What do you think needs to be done right now, even before vaccine is widely available to the public. I think it's really important for people to have ah, sense of what's happening and what's been done so far so very clear and concise and consistent messaging about the vaccine development process. Venture manufacturing process. The approval process is So that people have a sense that we're not doing this blindly that The vaccine development that's happened with the co of vaccine has been fast, but it's built on decades and decades of experience in making vaccines and distributing vaccines as well. When you're Chicago's chief medical officer, you were involved in distribution of the H one n one vaccine around the city. What did that experience teach you about how to address hesitation, especially And marginalized communities. And are there lessons there that you think the incoming by the administration can apply nationally? I think we learned a lot of lessons through the H one n one pandemic in 2009. We were working frantically to get vaccine providers lined up to actually make the vaccine available, and we also hosted vaccine clinics and communities that are typically underserved. The weather physician accesses a little bit more challenging. And what we found was that these mass immunization clinics that we hosted in some of our communities of color. The turnout for the vaccines was lower. And so at that point we started reaching out to community organizations, Faith based organizations to have them help us understand what was going on in the community. Why weren't they turning out for the vaccine? Why weren't they getting vaccinated? It would have helped US organizations that are already in touch with members of that community. Right. So we were we had organization that we were already partnering with. We reached out to them and ask them to engage with us again, and it worked to some extent, but without we didn't get the success that we were hoping for, and so building on that experience in non pandemic times, the Health Department and our partners worked established relationships on ongoing time. Between pandemic so that we would actually have these relationships and could really rely on the information from those community groups to inform our planning for future pandemics. The current health department is actually tapping into in relying on those relationships now to really help to get the information to the communities and understand what their questions and their concerns are. Interesting, But let me ask. There are real questions about vaccine safety. I mean yesterday, the CDC Immunization Advisory Committee recommended to give the first round of vaccines to health care workers and residents of long term care facilities. But there has not been a lot of research into the effectiveness of the vaccine and the safety of the vaccine in the nursing home population. How can experts be sure that it is safe for them? So the information is being evaluated, but it will be evaluated by FDA to look at the safety and efficacy to understand who the study populations included. Information that I've seen so far suggested the vaccines how are safe and effective in a wide range of age groups, a wide range of races and ethnicity and someone that information's fully evaluated by the FDA is advisory committee. Next week. We'll have additional information to really inform the recommendations with CDC or the C I. P did yesterday was really make recommendations in anticipation of these results. But they can be refined based on what the FDA and their advisory committee actually determined. Now the CDC is reputation has taken a hit during this pandemic. Guidance on testing and school re openings has sometimes been influenced by political pressure. So how do you think a new administration can restore confidence in the agency? So I think one of these like when I think about the vaccines situation currently, the key thing to keep in mind is that the E C. I P is not. It's the independent group of physicians, scientists, public health officials who come together and really review the data River to review the facts, review The evidence and the makeup, eventually Advisory Committee that's the advisory committee and they make recommendations to CDC. And then CDC that makes recommendations and buy a large those recommendations of the pipe makes the CDC usually fit makes us well. And so we'd be looking for after the recommendations are made by a CFP. What a CDC actually say is their alignment. Is there agreement with what A C I P s saying as well. Now, as you know, distribution of the vaccine is going to be handled by the states. And a couple weeks ago, I spoke with the head of Maine's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr Nirav Shah, and he told me his state does not have enough money to build the infrastructure required to make sure everybody who needs it gets the vaccine. Here's what he said. We at the state level are ready to receive the baton to have that baton pass to us to begin the vaccination process, but without proper funding. It'll be like putting up a tent poles without having the tent. And he said, This is true of many other states, too. So Dr Marie to do you think the federal government is ready to provide the money that is going to be necessary? I think it's important to provide the adequate resources to public health What I've seen in the past in public health emergencies during my 10 20 years, the Chicago Department of Public Health Was that there would be large Pulis's of funding that would come to public health agencies of the state and local level during a crisis and then shortly after the crisis, But then the funding would actually go away. And so public health infrastructure really has suffered over time, and there is a need There's a strong immunization system that's in place, but it has to be enhanced that it has to be strengthened so that actually, people can actually get the vaccine in an equitable fashion. That's Dr Julie Morita. She is executive vice president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is a thunder of NPR. Today. She was speaking with us in her personal capacity as a volunteer for the Biden transition Teams. Coben 19 Advisory board. Dr Morita. Thanks for your time. Thank you. President

A Decade Of Adventures With Professional Volleyball Player Marisa Field

"Though. Morita the question of when it comes on when you're younger than athlete will. Your bigger during the goal is to achieve. Actually I was just thinking about this. I used to have this like. I don't know way back when when you had like. Msn Messenger thing or ICQ like those instant messaging things on your computer like my little bio thing was like pro volleyballer end like it was kind of a joke. 'cause like I didn't even know what that meant at the time. Just like yeah. That sounds good. Like Appropriately but had no idea like how it was going to get there what that bed so I guess I was always like kind of an idea in the head but actually was kind of a nerd in high school actually was planning to be a chemist I went to university with the intention of that and volleyball took over my life so okay so when you say you're going to be him if like how do you feel that working out like Nafta type stuff like why can't we be wasn't entirely sure but I just chemistry high school. I started my first year at college in my hometown. Action with the intention doing or years volleyball but graduating ending chemistry after the whole course life change. That's awesome so so you had your MFN bio theme Pro Volleyball Claire. So when you wrote that in life started happening had you start thin are i. How can I make this reality? Yeah I think Actually like I was just trying to remember when I started playing volleyball. I think I was about while which is crazy now to think about says while is actually been two decades now. I've been playing volleyball thirty. Two ounce so yeah. It's Kinda crazy but I think the starting kind of jump off point for me was when I made team be see from. Abc and I made that provincial team when I was like or teen I think and Is your calling you very raw. Was the word they used for Terrible but I jumped really high back then. I guess I'd potential so they took me and I didn't interview That year the year after something for them I think it had something like one day. I WANNA wear like a maple leafs on my back in fourteen candidate ahead said that Ben in nearly no like what it took to get there but eventually became a path so dover I know there's Tony was the have the application you know. They say. I want to be in Olympia and I WANNA don't own and do all these things. People atoms dry. Yeah like you can't do that to. How did you keep your mind? That like may laugh at my drain on a chase them all like originally when I started playing volleyball. I didn't even really WANNA play Bible like I started dance when I was like three years old. So I dance all the way up until the end of my high school. And my mom had kinda like encourage Mir Gently pushed me to play volleyball and at the time like basketball. More which is binding workers like ended up deciding basketball's too much running for me so I ended up. I was doing all three things. That was dancing. Anos playing volleyball and basketball into high school and then I can window basketball and then faced out dance. Bowling Ball's seemed like a better future option to go with so I started college. I graduated sixteen so a super young and I had offers to go to other schools like in the states and other Kadian universities ended up wanting to just stay home and I had really good the program at it was actually called back in but it's the UCLA now University of British Columbia Okanagan so that was in Colona and the coach was Steve. Manual was one of my mentor coaches still to this day. He kind of had a big role to play in my progression volleyball. So after my first year there recruited to go to U B C in Vancouver with Doug Rhymer in his team and it was kind of scary. Move to consider and I went to a two years with Steve Cohen than ended up making a transfer to UC Vancouver in coober into the it's called CIS fact then it's like all changed Old Sport now like a Canadian University system so I ended up going there my third year and after my first year there. I actually got invited to try out for the national team so just kind of like crazy because after my first year. Ub See a lot of the players on ABC. Were playing on the national team or not was. Kinda like became more of a realistic goal. I guess you'd say and I was like you know maybe after a couple more years like chance tryout and it was just kind of a really strange process how I ended up getting a tryout and then ended up making it and as when I was nineteen and so things just took off from there. Wow so he graduated at fifteen Lloyd. just win for team into transitioning to the next level. Yeah so like when I started I was still kind of didn't really have the idea like my first year. I was like okay. I'm going to chemistry and whatever tall Canadian still pretty nerdy. Still Pretty that. I think when I got recruited to go to the CIS and go play for a UPC IN VANCOUVER. That was kind of like okay. Maybe things can kind of progressing go ahead and they gotta also the gentle nudge from my coach. There Steve Manual. That you know you can stay here but basically I'm kicking out because I want you to go play at the higher level and Sierra potential so that was kind of Mike Start off point in the program with Doug Rhymer Jesse Knight was coach at the time and they really Hannah propelled my career in and getting me onto the national team and then I ended up finishing up two more years with. Ub See we won two national championships back to back. Actually and then they went onto win for more after I graduated in a row but Selena was kind of the start of my national team career when I was nineteen and then just retired from that like a year ago. So I'm relying on your La- calendar something you said if you ride a story about your journey it will be. I believe instead a decade of venture. But when you when you wrote that in your mind what we've thinking it's just kind of funny actually because I saw graduated from U B C in two thousand nine and then a number of the national team and then went to play pro for my first season abroad. Enso's like the two thousand nine going into two thousand. Ten was my first year in Europe. I was in Spain and the Canary Islands with my teammates Page and it was just like my funniest stories of life and pro. Come from this season it was just like so ridiculous in so many ways home at Christmas. Like almost didn't come back but when back and finish it out and yeah just finding those kind of the start of my career so the last decade now as I go back and forth on wrapping up in this decade. But yet it's just been. I've been all over Europe late in the Philippines. It's been ten years eleven years with team Canada and yet it's just been a lot of adventures all over the world so I think that sums it up for me your password. Kobe just ridiculous. I've had to in that time. Also pretty full of awesome so going back to the volleyball in making the kind of play with higher compensation had you again was an adjustment to your mentality how you approached the game or the always the same I think definitely I mean developed. I think even from kind of a young age I had like sort of athletic discipline instilled into me. If you from LIKE DANCE. Three in that was like a very disciplined Pity so I think I just always kind of had that. I think that's just part of my character. Personality is kind of like the athlete mindset but definitely like as I progressed higher up in levels that kind of became more of like my dreams once I made team Canada became okay analysis become an Olympian and so that was the focus and that sort of worked towards a win to two Olympic qualifiers A. Twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. Very narrowly missed the twenty. Sixteen qualification end. So that was pretty heartbreaking but that was kind of the goal that was like why played volleyball was always to hopefully get to the Olympics. One day and that was Kinda what fueled him what. Push me through a lot of difficult times for sure and persevered through a lot of things and a lot of crazy seasons abroad in Europe pro. And and all that but Yeah I think that was always. My dream unfortunately didn't happen but had a lot of a lot of adventures along the way trying to get

The second thing is there is a huge amount of live music around the ship that again is all included within your fair. The first of those one of the most popular is in the cavern club. This recreating the Liverpool Club where the Beatles were founded and there's a Beatles tribute band and that play in here twice a night and they cover all the greatest hits from different phases during their career. It's hugely popular and really good fun. ANAEROBIC Beatles fan but had a great each time in there with this band dotted around the ship. There's lots of other live music throughout the evening and the once check out our in the district Brew House they they have a Singapore to sing alongs in the sugar cane Morita Latin music but a dancing. And then you have a house band entertaining in the different lounges. Just around the ship and in the main atrium the actual music is completely free. If you WANNA have a drink while you watch you pay for your drinks but the live music completely free and included you can also then for free go and have a great evening of comedy so in the Social Club they they have a comedian on various times during the night and the late evening that becomes the nightclubs. He can laugh your head off and dance the night away until really late again and if you want something to drink you pay for that but the actual entertainment the DJ and the comedy completely free access to pretty much. All the facilities on board is included. Clued there a couple of exceptions but one of the things that is included. That is phenomenal. Is The waterpark. There's two water parks one which is for adults and people of all ages and then as a kids Akwa Park in the adults park. You have to multi-storey high thrill rides the first of which is called the the Akwa. Racer these are Tanimoto slides and then you have ocean loops which extend right Outta the side of the ship. You wish of the side of the ship and you go through a double double loop down on the pool deck. You have the kids Akwa area where there's lots of cascading water and lots of fun for the kids get of course. The use of the pool is all included within the fair. But the waterpark one hundred percent included the fifth thing you can do for free. Just go and watch the go kart the speedway that way. If you want to take part in a go kart you do have to pay for that but you can go and watch the thrills and perhaps the spills up on the two level go kart race track crack. The uncle speedway it's larger than the ones on the other ships of a similar size. There's a great viewing area right in the middle of the track and it really is huge amount of fun one. If you want to go on the go carts do pay. It's at the time recording. It was nine ninety five four one circuit. You can also buy a day pass or a entire Haya cruise along party which gives you unlimited rides. So a day pass was twenty nine ninety five per person and it was just under two hundred dollars for a full weekly pass Oss. If you're into laser tag there is an open air course. which is the lost city of Atlantis? And you do have to pay to take part in that again. It's around about nine hundred five five per person for a game and you can buy weekly and day passes to play laser tag. There's no way that you can actually watch that particular activity activity. You're also head down to Galaxy Pavilion and watch people. On the simulator is these are sort of multidimensional forty rides so people are wearing the virtual reality goggles. You can go watch. People take part in these various activities. If you do want to go any of the rise that does include extra cost being silly go down and look at everyone making themselves sometimes on those particular rides also that there is a video arcade which again is a pay per play. This is a great space. And there's lots lots of things to do here but again you can what we were playing. But you can't take part without paying the critical thing to do in terms of all those activities which I would strongly recommend you do is go and watch the speedway encore and the various racist. It's really good fun. The good news is that full free other words included. Within your fair you can eat eat for twenty four hours of the day now. There's a couple of key dining options that are included within your face so you have three main dining rooms which accord taste. Say That and the Manhattan Room.

You prefer breakfast lunch or dinner and these are very beautiful rooms and you can go in there and have a full multicourse meals. The other restaurant which is included within your fair is the garden Jordan cafe which is the buffet restaurant. I relied us as a buffet restaurant. They had all sorts of different stations. For example at lunchtime you could have a stir fries you can have a past the station. There will be a pizza station to be a burger station and again breakfast. You'd have all sorts of different types of stations. There have lots of desserts and you can have huge amounts of food up there in the gone. Kevin that tends to be open for breakfast lunch and dinner. You'll only find though at some parts of the day you can go up and get some free teas and coffees juices and various snacks. All the specialty restaurants. You do have to pay extra to go to and there are a lot of them however there is one of the special restaurants that is included within your fair and that's the local local has comfort food. So you've got hamburgers hotdogs efficient chips and this is a great space to go. It's open twenty four hours a day. You can have comfort food getting you pay. If you have drinks you're GONNA have to pay for your drinks and and it's ridic- great location and you can look down onto the my nature him at rate meaning point but that is all included within your everything else. There is some charges so for for example in room service. You do pay a service fee which at the time a recording was seven dollars ninety five per order if you want to go to any of the special ed to restaurants of which there are at least nine of them or you want to go to any of the other food and beverage outlets like the starbucks bake shop or the ice ice cream shop. You do pay to go to those so the free things are your main dining rooms the buffet and the local the next one is great. Particularly sleep for parents or multi generational families travel together. Is You can leave the kids to play all day be looked after all day. And that's only could the fit so it's free. They have three phenomenal kids clubs and these really are huge big space and they can cope with hundreds of kids in the peak season and so for example at the peak time like Thanksgiving they could have literally almost a thousand kids being looked after by these various kids clubs. So the key ones that that you need to know about our first of all guppies guppies is a largely unsupervised space for very young toddlers where parents can go and play with their toddlers and there's all sorts of things to do that the next one which is one of the most important ones of all and the most popular ones of all and the biggest of all is called the splash academy it's not water's just to nine. This is where kids from three up to twelve will be able to go and play and the divided into different age groups. Then you have entourages which is for the teenagers so that's from thirty up till seventeen. That's only within the fair and your kids can spend all day the only thing you would pay for the main kids club the splash academy that closes at lunchtime for an hour and a close in the evening for an hour. Now if you want to kids on Portes to be supervised visor and taken to meals your pay the time recording six dollars for lunch six dollars for dinner so the great news is as a parent you could go on an excursion and your kids would be supervise and you'd literally paying six dollars but the actual supervision out of mealtimes totally free included within the fair after talking about the ability to each twenty four arouse a day and the huge amount of food options.

The Rise of Portuguese Gastronomy in Britain

"Opening of the Hawaiian Bar Restaurant Bar Dole rowing London. Three years ago was a milestone for Portuguese greasy and in the British capital both critics and the public loves to the place and also Monaco showed its approval by including Doro in our fifty best restaurants list now. The success story continues us the founder Max Graham and his team prepared to open their second and location. This timing London cece waterbed as I'm then to look back at the past three years to talk about the new location and the revival of Portuguese. Food Food in Brayson Max. Graham joins me here Madari House Studio One Abbey early. I actually opened a pop restaurant back in two thousand fourteen in in Greek street. I was walking my family business. which is Churchill's put company that makes wine imports in the valley? So the d'oro has always been very much in my blood in my upbringing childhoods but really walking for Churchill's when I opened the pool house which was really focused. It was more of a marketing stunt than anything else that was a pup restaurants pop up wind pool bar and we showcase folio of wines and ports in some very very simple produce driven sharing boards and yet during that period. I think I started eating out in London particularly in the Soho area and I just realized that Portuguese foods was very badly represented. I mean a lots of Portuguese restaurants in Stockwell and I absolutely love those restaurants but there are different Soda Portuguese restaurant and you know I was really at the time. I'm loving bar. Fina unloving Morita on these concepts. That were really showcasing. Spanish cuisine in such a contemporary outwards. Outwards way I'm really engaging with Londoners. I'm getting them excited about gastronomy from abroad and I just felt. Portugal wasn't doing that in in London at the time. So you decided to fix that. Yeah I mean I. I started the process of putting together. Ideas Footballer on that culminated in the the opening in two thousand sixteen in between then others opened up some Portuguese restaurants. Nunu Open Tabatha and you know a few years ago. It was great that was about three three of US laundry. No Tobacco really pushing Portuguese food and of course like I said. There's lots of restaurants in stockwell London that really lead. You backed Portugal Assad way which is a sort of nostalgic way. I think it's interesting that you mentioned that before. You launched Bhadra you. You felt that Portuguese food wasn't particularly well represented in London for example. What do you think that was? I don't know maybe London wasn't ready when I was much younger. That was a restaurant on the Kings road called Tuba. It was a Portuguese restaurant. And you know they were showcasing Portuguese food and I don't think think it just didn't engage with London's at the time you know this was about fifteen years ago and I just think potentially Londoners the appetites it's for new experiences. New Cuisines has just snowballed and London just hungry for new concepts particularly when they're showcasing acing cuisines that are less represented. I think that comes in tandem with the fact that Portugal has just been having such a surge in tourism such exposure over the last five years. I mean Portugal. Now the past five years it's just a completely different country. I mean when I grew up importer. It's just so far away from what it is. Today I think in Portugal there is such a wealth of culinary Marie on wine tradition. And I think that these experiences already being heightened and I just think London it is now more than ever probably quite excited to engage with Puccio before we talk about your second restaurants. You're about to launch. Let's still talk about well. Well the first module has been like how strong of a vision. Did you have in regards to the menu as you mentioned you. Spent your childhood impose import. So did you have very strong. Opinions on wall belongs to the menu. And what doesn't so. We actually run a pop up in Puto for the summer for two months with my head chef at the time and we really use thoughts time to brainstorm ideas to travel around you you know. I'm I grew up in the north of Portugal so I'm very familiar with the northern cuisine. But what's so special about Portugal. I'm what's been so special about. The last three is building Baltar is really engaging and learning about those other regions which also rich in culinary and gastronomy but yeah at the time that would favorites from childhood's that were also dishes that we thought had identity which was very reimposed since a lot of the Times a small plates Portuguese concept. You know that's not really traditional. You have petit scores which are sort of small plates. It's butts traditionally wouldn't eat like that in Portugal. It's more about largest sharing dishes and so so you know I was conscious that I didn't want it to just mimic another Spanish tapas restaurant. I really wanted those decisions. And those menu items to speak the identity of Portugal's Strana me which is very much Atlantic driven and you've done a good job. Let's remember that was just a couple of years ago when we ranked as one of the world's what's best restaurants here US monocle very very generous and wonderful knowledge. You're very welcome now. You're opening your your second restaurant in the city. How much could you tell us about that? How different or how simulates the second body raccoons be compared to the first one so I think at London Bridge we? He was slightly limited in a way. By what we wanted to keep the menu short to the point we rotated every every season. There are some dishes that just don't move because they become so popular. That can actually sometimes be quite limiting when you wanting to show off a another hundred dishes that you've come across crossing excited about. I think that's really what the policier in Hof has been. What's been great about that is that we have just really been exploring? During Portugal's different regions different Tad was different recipes. Different Cultures and I think that our menu in the city just gives us a really great opportunity to scratch a little bit deeper about what Portuguese food is. What are those star dishes? By the way that are very much in demand. People may find from both restaurants. Well I think the Buccleuch Bras is one that has been a bit of a heritage buckle. Er Brash is shoestring potatoes very very thin chips which is gently scrambled with eggs and the so-called which we rehydrate for forty eight hours Solved with some olives lovely dish it should be very creamy and it's it's a real comfort food dish and I hope that that will be something that people enjoy in the city as much as they have done in London Bridge. But we're also taking some really exciting new dishes working on this lovely ill dish from the IRA Rawda which will be Friday deals with a Byron source which is really traditionally used on suckling pig. So it's a a white pepper black pepper golic source but it's great on the Friday deals as well how much you still have to be discovered from Portugal. Something the world hasn't quite goes familiar with yet. Every time I go home I think the world has discovered it even more so than the last time. It's just every time there's more people. It's a great points at the alignment with this buzzer tourism but also the locals really embracing the tourism. I think as more and more people go to Portugal. It also drives the experimentation of the chefs impeachable. So there's a wealth of traditional food as a starting point. You've got this book which is all a Bible. Maria alluded Vest who literally has written down all of Portugal's star dishes but then you've also got this generation of chefs Jeffs that went away from Portugal. Who have started coming back on bringing with them? A huge amounts of technical expertise on the taking these very traditional recipes on expanding Portuguese food is expanding those boundaries and considering how reached the Portuguese culinary culture. Do you think there are many dishes and many ingredients. The world has been discovered yet. Something you struggled to find from outside of Portugal I think Portuguese food is obviously hugely driven by the Atlantic. One thing that is very very hard to compete with even though we're in Ireland is the rich miss of produce on fish that you got on the coast of Portugal. You got wonderful. CARBONARA is down in the all. Gov You get incredible perception. which is a goose? Bonna cool on the north coast particularly something like Incredibly Hard Oughta find elsewhere. Something I'd love to put on our menu but it's just one of these ingredients. That's better left for Portugal and better enjoyed when you go visit. I mean there's a lot of dishes that we thought about putting on which would definitely challenge. I think people's perceptions but I mean you've could be the which is made with chicken's blood and you know and there's a lot of tripe and offal dishes in the north of Portugal which I think maybe will hold off from on the next restaurant where probably gonNA play a little bit more safe than that but maybe As a special once in a while maybe one day as we mentioned already. You're just about to open. Open your sick and restaurants in the city. What about after that? Do you have any longer term plans. Walt may happen after that. Yeah I mean. We now imports about fifty percents of all winus. Direct from Boutique produces in Portugal. One thing I've really liked to develop more of a wine shop Pango and also we bring in a lot of cheeses and shall coutries would love to develop a mercer which is a deadly concept. I mean the sky's the limit. You've got punch bakeries. which would be great to get involved in but Baldur in its core concept I think I think it definitely has potential insult to grow to one team or sites off to this Max Graham Phone Giraffe Bar Douro and the new restaurant in London's broad gate opens later eighty two this month

"From Emory Morita. She was up in the Columbia tower. This is downtown Seattle and what do you notice a lot of lights tons of people? And that is why Seattle stay so much warmer on a night like this and really any given night. Then all of the surrounding areas is just a lot of human activity. It's called the heat island effect, and we are struggling to cool off, especially downtown compared to all the outlying areas. It's still seventy five degrees here at eleven o'clock at night. That is outside inside our homes are likely much warmer than that. Unless you're one of the lucky ones that finally picked up an air conditioning unit Windsor northerly. That is so important. You cannot get heat way without northerly winds around here. Temperatures outside of the city. Limits are a little bit cooler than that. We're all the way down to seventy in the state capital, much cooler right near the water. Look at sixty two Friday harbor and. And upper sixties right now enforcement Aberdeen, seventy seven at the beaches here as we approach midnight, pretty incredible heat we had it happened. I around the bay area that heat is pushed all the way from San Francisco through Portland and Seattle today. Again, a lot of the weather story is due to win direction. It's important, you need north northeasterly winds coming through western Washington. That's all we've got we've lost our onshore flow. He no longer have that cool moist influence from the Pacific. Look at these northerly winds coming right through the sound back down the sides of the cascades. They're hot. They're dry at night, they are going to keep that heat coming for us as we head into tomorrow. So that's our next weather maker. It's the current one that we're in big area of high pressure bearing down on us in all of that air, sinks that heats up on the way down. And because we had that thermal truck that was sitting in San Francisco crawl all the way up the coastline. It's brought the heat with it all of those wins north northeasterly trying to fill it up. And that tends to bring the temperatures up and it brings the humidity down. So it's been a dry heat. The next twist in the. Plot though is going to be the slim chance for thunderstorms. Starting to pop up over the cascades, tomorrow, you're going to notice things, changing, I because we'll start to see a little bit of increasing cloud cover, and it's going to make it feel muggy out there. But also a chance to pop some lightning over the cascades, when we've had days of dry heat, like this, the introduction of lightning never something we want to see. So we'll certainly keep you posted tomorrow afternoon if some of that does indeed start to break out overnight, tonight, one of those nights, where it's just really difficult for sleeping because it takes all night to cool off into the fifties and the low sixties by dawn. And that's our bouncing off point are springboard into an even hotter tomorrow, ninety at sea TAC airport that will easily be warm enough for new record. We already had that new record in the upper eighty set earlier today and add to that a little bit of humidity. Increasing clouds starting to fade out the censure late in the day, but high still managing to make it back into the low nineties in many spots, including over the plateau, as usual. It's cooler through the strait will drop into the seventies there compared to what we see. Downtown forks and Quilliam eighty two tomorrow. So that's a drop of nearly ten degrees and in eastern Washington we're back into the nineties again with that humidity and a slim chance for thunderstorms. Washed for lightning watch for those clouds to increase if you're going to be over the cascades, great way to track the weather anytime is by downloading our KOMO news weather app, especially if you're going to be away from your home and out, and about trying to enjoy some of the sunshine outdoors, but hot and humid tomorrow slim chance for thunderstorms. Notice the big drop on Thursday. That's our marine are starting to make it back in. And that rush of cool moist air. The wind direction change coming in from the Pacific brings us back down into the more reasonable seventies all the way through a beautiful Father's Day weekend in the short term tomorrow looks hot. And it looks muggy Shannon. Thank you want to get back live to Snohomish.

"In this week for Morita logos. And today on the breakdown one of twenty one candidates running for the democratic nomination for president Washington state governor Jay Inslee, and he's making climate change the cornerstone of his campaign. He definitely isn't. He'll be joining us in just a few minutes. But first guy well, some fireworks in Washington this week US attorney general William Barr testified, of course, before the judiciary committee of the US Senate which happens to include both California senators staff Feinstein, the senior member and Kamala Harris, actually, the junior member the first and last of the Democrats to talk. That's right. She hits tenth, but we'll be talking about her first day as we often have on this show. Look these moments of questioning when Kamla Harris gets you take on Trump officials or different people testifying in both the Senate intelligence and Senate Judiciary committee. This is when she is in her pervert bag her zone, her element. This is when she gets the show off the kind of prosecutorial skills that I think she's largely basing her presidential campaign on. She is. And of course, you got a lot of headlines for her sharp questioning I think he could say very methodical ABCD one thing leads to the next. And as you said, it's her experience as a prosecutor, which he is quick to point out what a play a little clip from one portion of that questioning where she is asking William bar, the attorney general about whether or not President Trump's been involved in the department of Justice. Thank you champion. Attorney bar has the president or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone. I wouldn't I wouldn't. Yes. Or no. Repeat that question. I will repeat it has the president or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone. Yes. Or no, please, sir. The president or anybody else? Sames you'd remember something like that. And be able to tell us guy. You can just kinda hear him burn up the clock. They're trying to run down the clock. Of course, he was under oath. So he was being careful not to lie. I guess you'd say, but there's been a lot of talk that the president has in fact been encouraging the department of Justice to look into for example, Hillary Clinton, but I think it was notable that running out the clock was not what Harris was trying to do. And that's kind of stands in contrast. There's two other senators on that panel. Cory Booker, Amy klobuchar also running for president who started out, you only get seven or so minutes, and they both started out their time really with these stem winding summaries of how they thought bar has handled Muller's report Harris, the clip that we played that was how she started. She went right into the questioning. And I think you know, it's a lot of talk about seven minutes of time. I think we got to take a step back. Why does this matter? I think in a field where you're in field of twenty or twenty one candidates. There's only so many single year moments that you get this. A solo basically, you gotta make the most of our political world is watching this. This is your chance to kind of make a viral moment. And I think it is kind of a good precursor as we're now less than two months away from debates. You're going to be on stage with ten other candidates would push back though. Because I know there's a lot of the talk is this really shows you could go toe to toe with President Trump on the debate stage. And we will see perhaps it does. But I he's gotta get through twenty or so Democrats, and I'm not sure that it is the same skill that it does translate. But you know, I would say, I don't I don't think the general election debates, and honestly, I think in general election by the time, the debates come around in September people have made up their mind. I'm thinking more in a primary stage. You're there with ten other candidates, and you really are looking to create a viral moment a moment where even people who are not watching live. We'll be rewatching on their Twitter feeds and Facebook feeds for days to come. I think she's she's honed in on that. And an ability kind of a quick strike moment. Which could come in handy if she's going against twenty other people over the course of. Especially Joe Biden, I think because Biden although he's had a really good week. A big bounce in the polls from his announcement that he's running, you know, I don't know that his strength is going to be quick pivoting and parrying of topics on a debate stage. He has a lot of other strengths. But I'm not sure that is going to be one of them. And I think you have to give Kamala Harris particular credit because she is the junior Senator on that committee. She went last some of these other folks club shar Cory Booker that a little more time to think about how they were going to make their Mark how they were going to make some news perhaps in the fact that she did go last and made the most of it. I think that's as a lot for her. And she's tried to capitalize it as they all have with fundraising pitches right after. Yeah. All right. We're gonna take a short break. And when we come back our conversation with Washington state governor and presidential candidate Jay Inslee. You're listening to political breakdown from K Q public radio.

The new 'troubles' in Ireland

"Now on assignment in Northern Ireland. European correspondent Bridget Brennan went to take a look at an uncompromising new generation of Republican terrorists calling themselves. The new IRA the group has claimed responsibility for a car bomb and a string of hijackings in recent weeks. So what motivates them when so many across the island of Ireland a craving a lasting peace? Bridget. Brennan spoke to a young Northern Irish academic who spent the better part of a decade finding out peace in Ireland peace across these islands is a precious thing is the thing that we in the U K, this Bain fees and constant debate about what brings it could do to that hard fought pace processing Ireland and Northern Ireland. And there's a phrase you he quite a lot win talk of Briggs and Bill I in borders crops up, and it goes something like we all remember the dark days of the troubles in Northern Ireland. I actually don't remember much about the troubles. I was in primary school. When the Good Friday agreement was signed. But when I was in Northern Ireland recently, I realized of course, it spoon. Deep into the sake of people about my age there, even if they were only young when the conflict stopped. It's the reason why I sought out Dr Murray mcglinchey, she was absolutely fascinating to speak to she's a celebrated young Akkad from Bill Fosse. She's become totally absorbed in the history of her home. I remember when I was starting at we have family in Dublin, I left here in Belfast, and we were returning after a visit to family in Dublin we were returning to Belfast and our busts my moment. I was on a bus that was hijacked when we were taken off at gunpoint and the bus was used to block the road. It was at the time of the Drumcree disturbances. And so things like that really did have an impact and left me with a lot of questions about what was going on around me. And I wanted to make sense of it. And then and ladder years in two thousand nine I went along to a meeting. And Kleinert monastery that Chen fan were holding. And that was a public meeting about whether or not to join the PS, and they were trying to persuade the community to join give their support to the PSA. And I and I sat in the actual church of the monastery listening to this. And I saw you know, some there was a bit of a break owed at the back of people saying that their son didn't die for this or or just express opposition to the direction. What Xinfei and we're moving and. You know, it really picked my interest. Morita ease the perfect person to speak to if you want to know more about the so called dissident Republicans, these a hardline Republicans scattered across the island and Maria did about seven years of research into them republicanism is historically difficult to reach community. You know, we can't simply consult are a meeting minutes, and it was very important to me to actually quite and speak to Republicans on the grind. So I interviewed ninety three hundred Ireland, and I also went to feud some current prisoners Mugabe prison, and so it was a long process, and it was a times of difficult process because it did bring the attentions of the security services by that. She means you stopped and searched while riding her new book unfinished business, she been hanging out at some Republican events which caught the eye of some of the security services and her work also to inside prisons to talk to dissident Republicans who. We've always rejected the peace agreement, and I love the process of going around and really getting into the psyche of what people think, and I one of those moments probably was going to end demagoguery prison at which is based just outside Lisburn here in the north of Ireland. And that was my first time in a prison. And I went in not you know, as an academic. But I went in with the other families on a regular visit to see the prisoners. And what was remarkable? There was that the families of these prisoners had actually given up their visit for me to win. Now, given they only get a limited number of those felt that was quite remarkable. So when I went through the same process that the families and friends go in visiting their relatives. And so the process involved at one point sitting dying the drug dogs walk in arraigned to which all seemed very surreal and before I was then brought onto the Republican Landon in the prison. I asked Marie sir of couse about Brexit him with a she thinks it's been a motivator for these groups in some of these hardline Republican groups like the new IRA. But I mean when you look at what people term dissident Republicans, there are techy letting traditional Republican ideology and principles. So if. You stand around gravesites at art in today at some of their events, you'll hear the Republican ideology and message that you would have heard in the seventies or eighties from the mainstream shin Fiene movement. So for them it's very much about traditional republicanism. And we've even them we've heard speculation recently about Brexit. And are we seeing the increase of republicanism in the wake of Brexit? And I mean, Republicans are very clear that their position isn't a response or reaction to Brexit. But rather Brexit is seen as an opportunity to be exploited. Scary thought Europe. Correspondent Bridget Brennan with that report.

"I haven't heard the president's speech however as it relates to health and health care though i think it's not just public health departments that need to talk about health their healthcare we're talking about with our hearth healthcare systems with their insurance companies other entities that are health promoters along with us and that's a loud and strong and powerful voice that needs to push back when each hit us may be making statements that are are not true and i didn't hear the speech so i don't know anything else and i think the insurers have come out really blazing leo to point out that this is nonsensical enough some of the things that make me nervous about the future of the country are this erosion of the notion of social solidarity of the fact that we're all in this together the idea that a baby in massachusetts should have such different life chances in a baby in mississippi erodes the idea that we are one country that we are all jointly committed to having a decent life for everyone who lives here that's the the thing that keeps me up at night one one more politics question in it's about again masisi repeal that is hanging over everyone's heads and by the time this podcast as listen to buy some folks maybe this has already passed but kushner morita in illinois the governor has been pretty quiet about ecu a repeat been asked repeatedly where does he stand and he came up briefly and i think said he wasn't a fan of the bill at one point but other than that very very quiet he's republican governor how hard does that make your job how much does it complicate this effort to push back on health bill that you think would her your city i think we've then afforded the freedom to speak openly about the impact that aca repeal would have on on the city of chicago that we can talk about and i have been countervaling allowed to do so the mayor mayor rahm emanuel has been highly supportive us making clear the impact ecu a repeal and replacement alternatives would have had on chicago and so i have not felt restrict because of what's happening at the state level.
