"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds. That is what we are running out of in rural minnesota and all over the country. Here's the first column in that same paper today. Case rates skyrocket in the region again. That's west central minnesota. Here's the front page of the news star in monroe louisiana blunt headline hospitals overwhelmed. Here's the front page in grand junction colorado. Today the daily sentinel county says. Icu beds are full. Here's the front. Page in muncie indiana. Today the star. Press in muncie. Indiana hospitals cove in nineteen rates. Sores in indiana go to wyoming. The casper star tribune today casper wyoming deaths rise by record number. Something has got to turn this around kentucky. Here's the lexington kentucky paper. The herald leader kentucky sets staggeringly high new record for coronavirus cases. Go to new mexico the albuquerque journal today cova cases explode up in washington state bellingham herald. State virus rate's the worst since the beginning of pandemic all over the country right and as as overwhelming as this crisis is may now tonight. We've just learned that. The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune. Today i was actually a pretty good snapshot of what the heck we as americans are supposed to do with the twin disasters. We've got all at once and look at the front page at the minneapolis star tribune today a raging forest fire virus sweeps minnesota state to get ambulances from fema for surge importantly those are staffed ambulances so ambulance with their crews from fema going into minnesota to help them deal with patients and the need to move patients in hospitals. That are overwhelmed
Native American voters helped win presidential election for Joe Biden - Business Insider
"Election, President elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state of Arizona in 24 years, and one group who played a major role in flipping the state for Biden was Arizona's native American population. According to high country news counties that included the Navajo nation Hopi tribe and to Hana Autumn Nation, where some of the key areas that helped the president elect carry the state and in the swing state of Wisconsin native voters also appeared to have been part of turning that state blue Now, as president elect Biden prepares to take office, native organizers and tribal leaders want to make sure he doesn't take their votes for granted. My name is Leonard Forstmann I'm chairman of the soup, Warmish tribe and President affiliated tribes in Northwest Indians. Under President Obama Chairman Force Mint was appointed as vice chair of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and last month he endorsed the Biden Harris ticket along with more than 200, other American Indian leaders. And as Biden begins to assemble his Cabinet chairman Force Man has a specific request. Appoint a Native American official as the next secretary of the interior. He and Shannon Whole Z, president of the Stockbridge Muncie tribe made their case in a recent opinion piece for Reuters. When I spoke to the chairman, I asked him to explain why the Department of the Interior is so important to native communities. Many of our Indian programs. Of course, they're housed in Department of Interior, of course, appear opinion affairs. Many other agencies that affect any country who the real land management, the National Park Service. And a lot of this has to do with our trust resource is with your land and water. Cultural resource is sacred places, so it's very important that we have a secretary interior that has a good understanding of Indian country and our values and traditions. What are some of the main environmental issues that are most important to Indian country and that you think the next secretary of the interior should focus on well in the Pacific Northwest. Here we really rely on treaty resource is, as we call them or our natural resource is wildlife, salmon, traditional plants, clean water. Not only for food, but also for medicine and also for our Spiritual life and ceremonial life. We feel that a change in leadership with interior will bring us back from the last four years of focus on Regulation and profits, and that's been demonstrated in a lot of the activities the administration's engaged in that have ignored travel needs and priorities in many parts of the West. Native American voters have played an important role in this year's election that has potentially been Not has talked about, but they did play a big role in battleground states like Arizona. What did that look like this year? What did it look like to get native voters out to the polls and also to ensure that Joe Biden doesn't take those votes for granted? Well, the turnout that came through, especially in some of the battleground states, of course, but these votes are great are important in all the states but especially Arizona, Wisconsin were a statement of the importance of Leader that shows respect for the presidential office sacred duty that leadership has when they're elected by people. The hold the tradition of that office important. I feel that Ah, lot of the turnout was based upon the need for better and stronger commitment to the number the numerous priorities that Indian country has I think that for the Democratic Party to honor those votes that came out, especially a lot of the new voters, I think is too Build upon some of the actions that the Obama administration that Joe Biden was part of and growing those and that's you know, getting more land into trust, rebuild our homelands. You know, investing in medical facilities to take care of our medical needs that are guaranteed with under the trust responsibility. You know, investing in a sustainable economic development. Protecting our natural resource is all those things. He did, including a really strong travel consultation effort. Will be important for the Democratic Party to continue doing as they did in the Obama administration, I believe is one of I believe was the best president for any country that we've had. So in order to keep that vote for the future, I think that we need to continue to do those things and also let people know about him because I think a lot of people don't know enough about what the past administration the Obama administration did. I'm settling a lot of lawsuits that have been lying machine like the call Bell on a contract support loss you a lot of things that were very major influential. I think that we need to make sure that people are aware of those things in the future things that the Biden Harris administration Hopefully has in their transition plan as well. So on the week of the

"This election president elect joe biden democratic presidential candidate to win the state of arizona in twenty four years and one group who played a major role in flipping. The state for biden was arizona's native american population. According to high country news counties that included the navajo nation hope tribes and to hana autumn nation. Where some of the key areas that help. The president elect carry the state and in the swing state of wisconsin. Native voters also appeared to have been part of turning that state luke now as president-elect biden prepares to take office organizers and tribal leaders want to make sure he doesn't take their votes for granted the leonard horsemen on chairman of the sukhois amish trod president affiliate tragic north west indians under president obama chairman forstmann was appointed as vice chair of the advisory council on historic preservation. And last month he endorsed the biden harris ticket. Along with more than two hundred other. American indian leaders and biden begins to assemble his cabinet. Chairman foresman has a specific request. Appoint a native american official as the next secretary of the interior. He and shannon hosie president of the stockbridge muncie tribe made their case in a recent opinion piece for reuters. When i spoke to the chairman. I asked him to explain why the department of the interior is so important to native communities. Many of our indian programs of course are housed in the department of interior. Of course the bureau of indian affairs and Many other agencies that affect indian country holding the breeland management the national park service and a lot of this has to do with our Trust resources which are land and water and Cultural resources sake replaces. So it's very important that we have a secretary. Interior that has a A good understanding of any country in our values and traditions. What are some of the main environmental issues. That are most important to indian country and that you think the next secretary of the interior should focus on well in the pacific northwest here. We really really rely on Our treaty resources as we call them or our natural resources. Wildlife salmon traditional plant's clean water. Not only for food but also for medicine and also for our spiritual life and ceremonial life and We feel that A change in leadership at the interior prius back from the last four years of of focus on deregulation and prophets seemed to have come over the importance of protecting habitat and Sacred places and that's been demonstrated in a lot of the activities the administration's engaged in that have Ignored tribal needs and priorities in many parts of the west. One of the people that you suggest could hold. The secretary of interior role is representative deb. Holland of new mexico. Who had on the show before and who is a citizen of the laguna pueblo tribe. Why do you think representative holland would be good for the role while we've known deb hall in a congresswoman now for at least a one term or more and She's demonstrated his Commitment to indian country obviously being a member of laguna pueblo and very close to their traditions and values which are very similar. Many trump's across the nation the importance of place and landscaped. The cultural landscape be importance of our traditions. Our stories our way alive on. It's all connected strongly to respect dean and holding our lands and waters sacred to our survival As an people something very important to us so we really believed that coming for new mexico deb has an understanding of energy policy and also understanding of the importance of environmental and resource protection. So i think she'll be a good candidate for trying to balance those two things in her leadership of the department.
Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League
"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.
Can Barcelona Keep Messi?
"Don You've been all over this on twitter calling it a poker move a bluff. So messy gets his wish then right Just, think seven shambles I mean I'm not quite sure actually what's going to happen in my heart of hearts I? Think Messi will end up staying at Balsa full million reasons all old hundreds of millions of reasons because who can actually afford him what's the scenario with these contracts do Balsa demand anywhere between two hundred, seven, hundred, Million County of free that will probably end up in the low colts, which again is ridiculous. Extremely Messy but I don't know if it's it's it's one of those Insa in you've I can afford them. I think to Rana's if messy seriously thinking about winning things and that's what he's allegedly.

The New Tech Driven Home Healthcare with Rachel Munsie
"More. Welcome back to the outcomes. Rockets saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting. Rachel Muncie she's on the founding team of tomorrow health, a technology driven home healthcare company changing the way individuals and families manage their care. She leads business development focusing on partnerships and sales strategic marketing initiatives, and new market expansion. She was formerly in healthcare investing, just working to unpack the US healthcare system and understand how we can treat. Treat better incentives through innovation policy and Advocacy Rachel received her bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and attended Mit for her MBA. Before leaving to build tomorrow health, you know the M E, durable medical equipment field definitely is a need for innovation and the work that Rachel and the team at Tamar Health doing is super unique and I'm excited to be covering that with you Rachel today and then. So I wanna give you a warm. Welcome. Welcome thanks for joining us. Thank you so much solve. Really appreciate it, and thanks for having me absolutely. So before we dive into tomorrow health and you know what makes you guys so unique and different in that space I love to hear more about you Rachel and what inspires your work in healthcare. Absolutely. So I am most inspired about solving the problems of healthcare and really the ones that we've all faced. So we spend more. More on healthcare in the US than any other country in the world. But our outcomes are worse and everyone understands what this means on level. I personally once racked up a bill equal to my rent payment during one doctor's appointment because even though I knew I'd have a high deductible plan and even though I knew I'd hardly spent anything against it. I, mean, I work in healthcare I throughout all of practical knowledge because I. I was anxious and nervous, and in a vulnerable situation. I think when you're sitting in a doctor's office or hospital, you rarely compare prices or shop smartly and most people don't even know that you can do that. So most of the time we do things because we're scared or rethink what choice do I really have my health is at stake and I think sometimes the prices in our system take advantage of that. So took me. Me a while to internalize I. Think most people don't realize is that we all pay the price for our broken health care system whether we know it or not. So either through lower take home wages or higher premiums or higher deductibles or even higher taxes and I actually still have those outrageous bills sitting on my kitchen table as reminder to myself that these costs aren't normal and i. think we deserve better and so since digging. Digging into this industry I as an investor, and now as an operator, I'm just constantly floored by the unnecessary complexity that I found in every corner of the go system and no one understands any of it. I. Think People Inside the industry barely do ominous the result of some wacky incentives that run. Ima- and not always a bad intentions. But this is exactly how that knowledge between industries, stakeholders and patience and the broader general public. Public just become so massive, and so when it came to my decision to help found tomorrow hull, it's not an exhaustive solution by one clear trend with pasta impact on all of these stakeholders is the shifting of more care to the home, which is higher quality, and as we know much lower cost of care setting. Yeah. You know you call out a lot of issues that were faced with I think every one of us. You're listening to this podcast today. You're thinking Yup I've been screwed with a big medical bill or and if you haven't which I'm sure you have if the very small chance that you haven't I'm sure somebody in your family are a close friend has dealt with it and I think it's great that you keep that bill on your kitchen counter Rachel, just as a reminder, right of the why behind why we're doing what we do and? Yeah. Care in the home is becoming that much more important with Kobe among us. So reimagining that healthcare is critical as you guys like to coin it. So talk to us about the work at tomorrow health and what exactly you guys are doing to add value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yeah. So at tomorrow health, we are a technology driven home healthcare company, and we are a full stack provider of healthcare, and we're a trusted partner that you can depend on to coordinate and deliver specifically home medical equipment supplies and support all in the. The comfort of your own home, which as you mentioned, all in covid world is extremely important and our big focus envision is on restoring home as the focal point for healthcare delivery and the Genesis of tomorrow health was personal for us, our Co founder and CEO Bj Qatar was working at Oscar. So He's well-versed in the complexity of healthcare and his mom was diagnosed with stage, three cancer, and she needed about a year of intensive home healthcare. Luckily, she's now doing much better, but he was responsible for coordinating. So much of that. That he and his family had to work with over a dozen, different providers would coming out of her home to get what she needed, and after about a month when she was discharged from the hospital, she ended up having to go back three times in her first one pound because of delays or equipment failures relating to her oxygen therapy, and so for patients, and also their families who are usually playing the role of caregivers edition be this hard, and then from a systems perspective whilst does the whole matter and you know by. By dramatically reducing our dependence on hospitals on ers on post acute care sites were able to get high quality care at home and also bend the cost curve in healthcare system. So by working with tomorrow health, we think it makes it easier to shift that care to the home because one of the legs of the stool for homebase healthcare are these hall medical equipment supplies and support

They've had to go to Miami to spend this work to Dubai's do fitness where if he's basically how the world of fitness Rehab in the United have allowed that to happen now it it doesn't look good. It was great. It looks like it looks like he's doing his own thing while Socialist teamer struggling to get me so you know. There's a disconnect there poker clearly was Levy said which is much June. The remnant were were circling around in a meteorologist said things that suggests that the relationship with the united isn't broken but it's a very strong book would he take more palatable united. We'll probably go there right now. Because united struggling the not the united were the side of the top four. They probably don't have a sporting project that you would say that. Liberal of God's on Muncie Eka identify. Were united to go in and right now. If you're Paul puppy thinking what am I going to win something you know substantial united. You can't see it for a long time. They're not win the premier league this year next year the year after the Champions League is a distant distant dream so if you're a pop punk rock and the Sunday Sunday was to get away and play for big big little more chance of being successful because man united way now inaugural of trophies but equally. I don't think Paul is play so you can make it will be again. Is the right place wrong time. Wise this whole coming out now because surely they could have played a lot better and like not talked about the operation and fitness issues and maybe could've tried to get rid of him in January. It's keep everybody happy. Well this fitness thing I mean I think social made a mistake. I icon on Wednesday after the game saying that pump is people peration that sounded lights Celsius was suggesting that pope. We didn't operation but he's people thought you did. Socially came Matto says yes. People also think needed an operation to so if he needs an operation game operated on. It was never gonNA go in January because nobody has the money to Paul Popa deal in January it would cost. What seventy eight million pounds? And it's not a deal that anybody really is GONNA do. Real Madrid haven't got the money to do that. Deal in January. So he's kind of United States Unites Nice to start with him and then hope when he comes back in February it can at least contribute something towards the end of the season and may get into the top four. Maybe get them to win the league. It's GONNA drug drug on. It's going to get the silver and he's going to go and it's going to be talking. Franklin birth is mentioned with us as well. Frank what do you make your fellow countryman the way this is all going down. Well that's not a good situation for Paul because of his injury because of his agents Speaking out and not saying good things about a big big club with the big history. I think it doesn't show a big major of of the player of a of fees entourage as well. I don't know what's GonNa Happen with Paul Truces in fact if you is exaggerating the injury if he really needs if we needed to surgery. I don't know what's going on really there and it's not good for the future follow. What's going to happen to him next year? But when you sign for a club and as always said that you have to make sure that you do everything to respect the club we signed you and then now days to be that when the players don't just WanNa leave just brick everything done to make sure that the club does don't don't want them anymore more so it's for me what's going to happen very soon. Tupua mentioned Cecilia. Kelly can go the don't want him. We don't want him and you can go anywhere. Who else sees situation isn't it has come to an end already? Well it's been a situation almost from the beginning didn't quite mesh on the field field for Paul and then obviously the injury issues of the injury shows. Now I have no problem going to seek out to get yourself back on the pitch as quickly as possible but I think it's then and when you're seeing at a Miami Heat basketball game or doing different things we're okay look. We know when you're injured. You're not getting your head away from things a little a bit helps but there's also a perception issue and the balance isn't right. The balance hasn't been right with with him on the field. The balance hasn't been right with him off the field and maybe it is the best for both parties just to kind of wipe their hands with it but I think is guys mentioned. It is an expensive deal. Menu are GonNa want significant capital back from the investment. They made and that deal probably won't be made until budgets organized with.

by his attorney Thomas's family says he had a long history of mental illness meanwhile in Muncie members of the Jewish community are looking both for answers and for healing as they celebrate the last day of Hanukkah for NPR news I'm quite Hogan and ran the PO a tourist agency is now accepting online applications to attend the grand opening of a new resort it's supposed to have all the usual luxury fixture she co towels water perk Marino fear private yacht it will also have monuments to the ruling Kim dynasty Kim as in conjunction yes this resort is in North Korea before you scramble to book your stay you might want to hear a little bit from and piers Anthony kun who is in Seoul and tracking the resort story from their hand thingy hi Mary Louise where exactly in North Korea is this and when exactly might it open the place is called one sign comma and it's on north Korea's southeast coast the scheduled opening is April fifteenth twenty twenty also known as the day of the sign which is Kim il sung's birthday that's the birthday of Kim jong-un's grandfather and it is believed to be Kim jong-un's brain child but anyways if you look at the satellite images and state media pictures the high rise hotels are up on this long strip of beach the problem is that they appear to be mostly shells their interiors aren't done and that's because Kim's idea was to show that his country can build a world class resort even under sanctions tourism is not subject to international sanctions construction materials are financing is in a lot of things they need for there's resort are subject to sanctions and that's apparently wide the opening has been delayed all right so sounds like they have a lot of work to do to get this place actually ready for tourists between now and next April what tourists are they expecting to come I ask because US citizens can't travel on on our usual passports together I'm guessing they're not expecting a lot of American bookings yes the travel agency this taking bookings now says no Americans no south Koreans and no Japanese they're expecting some well heeled domestic tourists but mostly they're expecting tourists from neighboring China the problem there is once they get there there may not be anywhere else for them to go they can't just travel around the country it will they may be stuck there is this part of the big economic push that Kim Jong un rolled out last year where he said we're not going to shift focus and and focus all attention in national energy on fixing the economy on increasing standard of living just this resort fit into that picture yes it does sites part of a number of very limited economic reforms that Kim Jong on his introduced he's allowed the rudiments of a consumer economy to spring up and he's talked about improving let living standards for the people and talked about consumption instead of production he's allowed some free market activities but there's no sign that he intends to let these go too far or allow too much freedom of movement too much freedom of information so ultimately these appear to be just vanity projects and experts believe they're going to be money losers the whole way north Korea's economy has now been contracting for two years in a row under sanctions and aid agencies say that many north Koreans don't have enough food to eat and these projects are expected to make the problem worse a so many ironies in what you're saying there and I'm wondering about another one which is this this is a luxury beach resort in one sign which if I'm not mistaken is also were North Korea has carried out missile tests in the past and this comes of courses tensions are ratcheting up yet again with the US over north Korea's nuclear and missile programs that's right it's just down the coast line from a missile launch site where missiles and rockets were launched this year exactly what you're looking for in your denture holiday beach but yes at this time I think that the last thing on people's minds is if a beach vacation in North Korea because Kim Jong un is expected to announce a shift to a hardline policy probably in his new year's address on Wednesday which could include breaking off nuclear negotiations with the US and ending north Korea's self imposed moratorium on nuclear and long range missile tests fascinating and here's Anthony kun reporting there from

"This guy said quote, I wouldn't have even hit the house. If it wasn't for these crappy Muncie roads. I don't think he said crappy. No, he's been charged with multiple felonies misdemeanors in witnesses in the car say he was going eighty chugging fireball. But it's the crappy Muncie roads is why crashed right? All right. I feel like I'm the perfect person to ask this because I lived in Muncie for five years the ball state experience. So first of all let me just say this. I'm not okay with drinking and driving in any capacity at all if you're behind the wheel, there's no way you should be chugging, fireball, spike. If you're looking for your keys in your phone, you shouldn't be saying, where's my open container? A fireball should not be in the same conversation that being said boy, the roads in Muncie or so bad. You would think the streets in Indianapolis were paved in gold. If you've ever spent more than fifteen minutes in good old funds, Indiana. I will do more flat tires suspension damage alignment damage at any point in my life living in Muncie. Here's the problem with Muncie. When I was there again, this was nineteen Ninety-six do about two thousand two thousand one the city was so poor. Right. They had no money to fix the roads. They couldn't even afford to put Christmas decorations up around the town because the city had no money for Christmas decorations. So that's what you're dealing with with Muncie. All of the money stays with a university. All those students pay twenty thousand bucks a pop that's inside ball state, the townies and the surrounding areas Yorktown and all these other places boy it's rough. I was thinking all this guy needs to do is find one sober person. Who's hit the same house? And then that's his arguments made. I'll just driving down the street. Mighty my business hit this pothole took off like the dukes of hazzard generally flying through the air. And then went boom goes the dynamite through the house him.

So the bringing the bringing the Connors back for a second season. Are you? Okay with this. I'm okay with this. I don't watch the show. But it sounds to me like even though there's no Roseanne, and she was removed for obvious reasons. A lot of people watch the show because it doesn't just focus on politics. It doesn't just talk about how either awful Donald Trump is or how good he is Murphy Brown's reboot got cancelled. Because all it was was a hatchet job on the president. And it was done by people who are not. Retaining the cast of Roseanne. I mean, John Goodman is a damn good afternoon. I like the work of John Goodman. There's some strong characters on the show. So long story short money talks Bs walks if it's bringing in the money if they're still doing okay with the ratings. Sure, you gotta bring it back. Speaking of John Goodman. The.

"Old pitch. Muncie. Takes a strike. This is game. Three the Red Sox up two games to non and they could somehow squeak this one out. Put a stranglehold on the World Series. But if it goes to two one. That's a whole different ballgame. Three balls and a strike infield shifted three to the right for Muncie. All these wind and the three watch swing in a bouncer foul first base side. And account. How poetry and to sure? We sneak this game. Oh, you're up three nothing. You don't worry about it starts tomorrow. But if you don't worry about don't now, you're sitting there saying, what are we doing got Iraq bomber is about to come into this game? Maybe. Iran. I hope you go sale on three days rest. Be asking a lot given all the end of the year start out ended for him. We have all these three to pitch coming. Here's the payoff to Muncie. Swung on fouled straight back. He gave them a high heater at ninety six a tough thing about that double-play among others. If you do go to the eighteenth or the nineteenth you got the pitcher leading on. Here's one thing that you look at. With batch Bogart's there over fifteen, but when you add up the top four hitters in the Red Sox order tonight combined over twenty seven. Not only seven hits all night. Mark three to swung on and lifted in the air left centerfield Jackie going back. Jackie to the wall. This balls. The dodgers. Max one CEO World Series walk off winter. As he knocks one out and the bottom of the eighteenth inning. He just missed one on the fifteenth. The dodgers have taken their first game in the series. It's now a two games to one Red Sox advantage. And the dodgers are right back in it. The effort of Nathan. All the us. Absolutely. Outstanding in this game. Be able to give you the Lincoln. He did. But you got beat up Red Sox team right now physically. Now, you have to wonder what happened Jerry games? Four those available to stock. The dodgers out celebrating on the field right now. And this will certainly be a disappointing. This will sting the Red Sox. Forty four players used in this game. Five hundred sixty one total pitches thrown in this game. And max Muncie. Hits on opposite field. Walk off home run. Just over the wall in left center and the dodgers win it three two. Monty hall mind the fifteenth by less than two feet gathered at thirty five months coming out of nowhere. This year. I've been playing days last year. And the longest game in World Series history. Ends with a thought to the Red Sox. Got a paid tribute Nathan of all the job. He did even though he spent with top defeat. Conor are breaking ball away. And it was above all maybe letter high just above the belt anyway, and he headed out. Backbreaker right here. You know, listen, you you're still up two games to one of all these down. We know that. But. Guys. Like you are a third of an inning grown this ball game. One. Whether it's called tomorrow. We should find out a little while the game is broken down. And makes an announcement. Guess I'd say Iraq tomorrow. In the meantime. Games. Like this a little harder to shake off. That the residual effect doesn't trickled through. Tomorrow's Red Sox are still have an opportunity to take a commanding lead in their series with a win tomorrow night. If not the series would be even be guaranteed to be heading back to Fenway park. But the Red Sox still two chances here what tonight's game does guarantee. There will be a game five here on Sunday. The final score three two two max Muncie opposite field walk off home.
