Senate Republicans Block Democrats' Voting and Elections Bill

"Yesterday was victory again. For the Republicans against the miserable Democrat effort to have a federal takeover of our elections. Yesterday afternoon, Republicans stood united and blocked the dubiously named for the people act or the freedom to vote act or all these crazy crappy little flowery names, the nefarious diabolical Dems used to try to hijack our election process. So good news, the Democrats biggest push to federally take over our election failed. Again, mainstream media won't report it that way, but that's exactly what happened. Here's the headline from NPR. You can see right through it. Democrats biggest push for voting rights fails with no Republicans on board. Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell led opposition among Republicans to a voting rights bill that centrist Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia hoped to corral GOP votes for. Well, nice

Now there is a growing body of research to point to many ways of dose of trees can improve our mental and physical health. Here's martha bebinger member station. W. b. you are on how and why the tiny sapling robin williams planted thirty years ago towers above her boston home. I raise this tree when i raised my children and look at this look at that.

Lower risk of diabetes reduced symptoms of adhd proximity to trees is associated with a ridiculously broad range of health benefits. I wish we had pills. That were this good for health. A few countries notably japan and south korea have invested in a practice known as forest bathing which is spending time among trees as a preventive health measure but prescribing time in nature is still pretty far outside mainstream medicine in the. Us from can says that. Maybe because there's a lot we don't know what doses needed. Do you need to walk. Among trees is sufficient just to look at the trees from outside your window. Do you need big trees or do small trees do the trick we you know. We're not able to tease the forest from the trees. Peter james at harvard medical school aims to answer a lot of those questions. He's merging health data captured by phones. Real time surveys about wellbeing and mood and street. View mapping data to dig into. What's exactly within view. Is it trees.

Hey dan i also so i don't ever think about my electric company unless there's like some blackout and then i'm like what is going on but why our electric utilities so so important in fighting climate change because electricity is the big hope. Electricity is the the one big energy source that can be free of carbon emissions can make it from the sun you can make from the wind tap the heat of the earth hydro power so many options some people including nuclear other people say nuclear too dangerous as for other reasons but that is the reason why utilities are sitting right in the middle of these discussions over how to get to zero carbon emissions which is is what scientists say is necessary. We're going to avoid some of the most catastrophic effects of climate change in the future <hes> but electrity not clean yet well. How much of it is already across. Austin country about sixty percent is still coming from fossil fuels coal natural gas that is changing but slowly and a lot of people say it's not fast enough who i took a re a reporting trip recently to north carolina sat down with one of the biggest electric utilities in the country duke energy duke energy is planning to shut down some coal coal plants but it is mostly then planning to build natural gas plants instead that does cut greenhouse emissions but definitely does not get you zero bright but we keep hearing about how like solar and wind energy are like the cheapest sources of energy so why aren't utilities going all renewable that was the question i asked duke energy and utility kept insisting that a big fast shift right now to renewables would make electricity more expensive remember up till now most utilities have not had to include in their accounting and he cost to the environment just cost to the consumer if they got hit by something like a carbon tax ax suddenly coal and natural gas would be way more expensive and solar would look a lot cheaper but we don't have that now but there's another reason why utilities are not super excited sighted about going all in this is kind of a paradigm shift for utilities it complicates their job because remember they can't control the wind and the sun the way they do colon gasps. Turn a switch and produce more of it when people need more. It's a big problem when the sun goes down and then everybody starts turning on the lights then what do the utility companies and he's do right so they could do some things like when the sun is shining charge up some humongous batteries so the powers their later when people need it but also instead of just managing the supply of electricity. Maybe they could manage the demand for it so for instance they could control people's electric appliances say a water heater. They could turn it on when there's plenty of electricity. When the sun is shining sun goes down they turn it off again matching the demand to the supply.

acquire people this weekend for million are expected to make the pilgrimage for world pride netto n._p._r. news new york the stonewall riots fifty years ago sparked a wave of gay activism at a time when many l._g._b._t. people were afraid to show their faces publicly just over a decade after stonewall a plague would begin to wipe out gay men this was an a._b._c. news report from nineteen eighty two it's mysterious it's deadly and it's baffling medical science acquired immune deficiency syndrome as we mark the fiftieth anniversary of stonewall this week we're going to look now at how the activism of stonewall transformed into the fight against aids david france is an investigative journalist he created the book and documentary how to survive a plague welcome to the program thanks for having me to start with the big picture did stonewall change the mindset of gay people in a way that allowed them to publicly protest in the face of aids they might not have if stonewall hadn't happened what we learned from stonewall was that the community no longer felt comfortable being as isolated and disenfranchised as it had been the we had carved out these little pockets of semi-freedom and stonewall said that's not enough and all the organizations that grew from that time said you know we have a right to citizenship we have a right to kind of all the responsibilities but all the benefits of being human being an american and when aids hit what became really clear very early on was that we were being denied really basic fundamental things that sense of entitlement is what carried through when we started to realize that hospitals were routinely not taking aids patients that nobody in the public health firmament was doing anything effective in response to the disease so we started taking care of ourselves by creating organizations like games health crisis in the shanty project in san francisco that took on the caregiving challenges that the community needed let's talk about one specific group that sprang up to respond to aids act up new york which staged protests and actions like diane's that were deliberately intentionally in your face obviously the group act up was a response to aids but did you see that as an outgrowth of what had happened install people who were really on the frontlines of the formation of act up we're new generation six years into the nineteen eighty-seven there still was no medication online to treat the disease there was no public health response on the federal level or the academic level nobody was responding to this at all in this new generation of l._g._b._t. folks were outraged and that's what act up was active was a responsive outrage different cities responded in different ways to the democ how would you compare what happened in new york to san francisco the san francisco model of responding to really care based it was kind of a famille response to the disease people were can help ing ease as aids patients in to death in the most comfortable way possible the activism of anger and of politics was really an east coast response it was an effort finally to break down those walls around the ghettos that we had built and and to say that we are not going to be able to do this ourselves we've done so much else ourselves but we are not gonna find a cure to this mysterious retrovirus it so we started going to the doors of big pharma and the halls of scientific research in demanding action from the people who had the training in the background and really the the ethical obligation to respond and so when you take a step back and look at this arc from stonewall fifty years ago to aids activism what lessons do you take away for for today for twenty nineteen what we learned from aids activism is that really street action and st organizing can be incredibly effective that even the most disenfranchised populations and certainly the queer population was disenfranchised in the eighties as any other can seize power can find a way to make positive change to end the disenfranchisement and the fact of that being a possibility i think is really the lasting message from that time journalist and filmmaker david france thanks very much thanks Sorry. you're listening to w._n._y._c. coming up next it's marketplace cubicles route the.

of active duty troops from being deported n._p._r.'s white house reporter franco donas has exclusive reporting on this developing stories in the studio with us now good morning franko good morning so we're talking about an established government program what does it do exactly yeah it's a program called parole in place it essentially provide temporary protection for immigrant families of active duty soldiers in the military you can imagine if someone is fighting overseas in qena stan are elsewhere you don't want them to be worried about their spouse in the united states potentially being deported i probably should know that this does not apply to all immigrants are all families of military officials military active duty members if you overstay visa for example this does not apply it is pacific to family members who have entered the country illegally and cannot change their status and it sounds like there are specific reasons for it so why are you learning that the trump administration might withdraw or or end or changes program well we've heard from lawyers of people who are dealing with the situation on behalf of their clients and they're essentially racing to get their applications in before it's ending we heard from a lawyer one government lawyer who warned other attorneys to act quickly before the program is fishawy ended and i'm reading from the message that we obtained i would advise clients that if they are eligible for parole in place to submit asap they continue to go on wish there was better news to share big takeaway is that no group is safe any longer do we know how many people are using this parole in place program how many troops this might affect we don't know exactly how many people are using the status for how many troops had affects but clearly the trump administration has tightened immigration policy across the board and it includes policies connected with the military i mean how would this affect military families immigrants are big part of the united states military you imagine as we've said if it a program like this is in place for a reason what could be the ripple effect what our attorneys telling you what families telling you well we know that there are troops currently being deployed overseas who are dealing with loved ones who are potentially going to be put in removal proceedings it is very disruptive this half this impacts a lot of families the immigration has been part of the military since basically day one they're weaved into the fabric of the military the united states recruits emigrants for the armed forces they recruit spouses of immigrants they recruit the children of immigrants they are nearly a hundred and thirty thousand troops who have actually been naturalized from over thirty foreign countries while in the military since october first two thousand one those are huge numbers when could this policy actually be withdrawn what have what have you learned there we're being told from the attorneys that they have been told that it could be ended by next month so as i mentioned there is a race to get these applications in the expectation is that if they can get him in that they will be grandfathered that may be perhaps more of a hope but really word is just starting to get out in the emigrant and immigrant lawyer community they will fight this issue they tell me but right now they're just trying to get more bits of information about it learn who their allies may be allies in the community but also inside the government and try to come up with a good strategy

nuclear weapons and if you wanna talk about it good otherwise you can live in a shattered economy for a long time to the u._s. withdrew last year from a nuclear agreement with iran and has increased economic pressure on iran ever since n._p._r. white house correspondent franko donas has been covering the stories in our studios good morning good morning this certainly isn't over is it it is not over look the president's team came out this weekend united trying to bat down any concerns that there may be that iran may be in bold and by the presence you know quote unquote lack of action that some concerned the president is promising strong more crushing sanctions and look bulletin national security adviser john bolton is also talking about military option is still a possibility so there's a lot to go here look some have said that pressure does work on iran it has in the past arguably but that was international pressure this in this case is more as unilateral leifer i guess we should be clear i on what we think the white house means by saying military option is a possibility it would seem the president has ruled out a military option in response for this drone shootdown right because he said that would not be proportionate what we're hearing from the white house's if there are more actions by iran that military options would be on the tape table is that correct yes that is correct okay and then there's the question of economic sanctions given that the united states has already put so many economic sanctions what more is there left to do yeah it's it's a great question it's very intense the president promised major additional sanctions but what can you do that isn't really clear the president has often talked about major things happening and they turn out not so major at least not as major as we expect one thing though that the president and his team want to do is they do want to give some time for the existing sanctions to take effect there are several sanctions that were put back in place when the united states backed out of the nuclear deal those target energy shipping and the financial sector they have had a dramatic impact on the iranian comedy and really strangled their ability to get resources so i want to try to understand what the president's longer term goal is here frank we did hear him just say he's willing to talk about a new nuclear deal but Based on your reporting. is that the president's goal i mean there are several possible goals here one is a new nuclear agreement another is regime change in iran another is some kind of pretext for war with iran there may be other options that i could imagine do you feel you understand what the president's true goal is i mean it's always really difficult to say what is in the president's mind but from our reporting certainly he is looking for a new deal a stronger deal a deal that was better than the one worked out by his predecessor predecessor president barack obama and he has been pushing back on some of his advisors top advisors who have wanted stronger measures including regime change the president very clearly not want to end up in another war and i guess we should note from this incident last week at least based on what we were told about it we have an example of that there appear to have been consensus to go ahead and launch strikes against iran and it was the president who pulled back at the last moment absolutely i spoke with senior administration of fficials on after that may told me that their decision that that all advisors security advisers and defense advisors were in support of the decision the response decision and it was president trump who backed out of the deal who made the final decision to to take action is the president worded all about looking weak that is an issue certainly all his advisers are saying that particularly on the political stunt people like lindsey graham are saying you need to take step some type of action or you or you will look like you're all talk okay frank thanks so much thank you this n._p._r.'s franko donas we're gonna look now at the problem some communities face after a natural disaster an n._p._r. investigation

"There's message comes from n._p._r. sponsor comcast comcast values your time that's why you can schedule to our appointment windows including nights and weekends that way you can spend more time doing what you love comcast working to make things simple easy and awesome from w._h._y._y. in philadelphia i'm terry gross with fresh air the new five g. network will soon become the internet's central nervous system providing speed and interconnectivity far beyond what we have now but in many countries the main parts for the network are from the chinese telecom equipment giant weiwei which could allow weiwei where the chinese government a doorway to spy spread malware and hacked data today we talk david sanger a national security correspondent for the new york times the big question is how will have we put together a strategy to deal with a rising power like china at a moment that it may will dom nate the communications networks that will lifeblood of our daily lives and that is such a difficult and bigger question than what we faced in the cold war that and more on fresh air support for this podcast comes from the neubauer family foundation supporting w._h._y._y.'s fresh air and its commitment to sharing ideas and encouraging meaningful conversation there's good news about the future of the internet a new five g. network is being created now which will not only offer faster downloading on cellphones it will provide the kind of connective we need in the era of the internet of things driverless cars internet connected medical devices smart t._v.'s and virtual assistance but there are dangerous that could be lurking in the equipment needed to build the new network the chinese telecommunications equipment giant wow way is dominating the creation of five g. networks around the world for years classified intelligence reports from the u._s. have worn the china would one day use while way to penetrate american networks for cyber espionage or cyber attacks in the u._s. the national security agency has banned a._t. and t. and verizon from using weiwei products in america's five g. network and last month the u._s. had a top executive from weiwei arrested in canada so she could be ex- stra diverted to the u._s. the growing cyber threat posed by china with stressed in the worldwide threat assessment a report from the u._s. intelligence community that was released this week and all this is part of the backdrop for this week's trade negotiations between the u._s. and china my guest david sanger is the author of a book about cyber war and cyber sabotage called the perfect weapon he's a national security correspondent for the new york times david sanger welcome back to fresh air let's start with the five g. network what is it and how will it affect our phones or devices an all our interconnectivity will at it simplest the five g. network is an increase in speed and range for what you see on your cell phone so five g. means is fifth generation but it's actually much more than that the hope is that when you're using your phone or some other device over wifi you'll get no leg time and that you'll get near instantaneous download of data web pages and so forth but as five ci was being rolled out there was a recognition that the internet had fundamentally changed that this was a moment to roll out something that could accommodate a world in which the internet of things was connecting up to all of these other wireless devices and so that's autonomous cars which of course need to constantly get data back and forth from the cloud constant connectivity so that they know where they are in addition to their centers helping you drive it's for every other internet connected device that you have and you know when you think about it terry it was just about ten years ago that in your own house you probably only had one or two internet connected devices laptop computer in a de stop computer maybe but today you walk into your house and you know you've got your fit bit and you're waking up alexa and getting it to play you music and you've got a smart t._v. and you probably have an internet connected car parked outside even if it isn't a fancy car most basic cars have some internet connectivity to them you might have an internet connected refrigerator you have all of these different devices and right now worldwide at the end of last year we think that there were about fourteen billion internet of things devices around the world and by the end of next year twenty twenty the estimate is there will be twenty billion so that gives you a sense of how rapidly were changing the environment and the next network has to be able to handle all of that and of course handle the g._p._s. needs for navigation handle greater government and military needs so this next five

"This message comes from n._p._r. sponsor comcast business business has always been driven by innovators that's why comcast business is helping you with technology that provides better experiences comcast business beyond fast the cold snap in the midwest is shattering records in some cities schools canceled mail delivery suspended at least eight people have died from the cold while you are hopefully huddled someplace warm we're going to talk now with the man behind one of the most famous pieces ever written about extreme cold okay that's a subjective statement but here is something we can't say definitively peter stark wrote the peace frozen alive more than twenty years ago and today it is still one of the most popular stories on the website for outside magazine peter stark welcome thank you great to be here ari just start by reading the first paragraph of the story sure when your jeep spins lazily off the mountain road and slams backward into a snowbank thank you don't worry immediately about the cold your first thought is that you've just dented your bumper your second is that you failed to bring a shovel your third is that you'll be late for dinner friends are expecting you at their cabin around eight for moonlight ski a late dinner asana nothing can keep you from that the story goes on to describe a near death experiences the man tries to skew his friend's house and ends up falling in the snow of all the things you've written in your career and you have written a lot why do you think this story keeps resonating after twenty years in my mind is zambia's story the story that's about being dead or near dead and it comes back to life every winter it gets really cold and i think one reason is that we're all humans we all have a body we all have the same physiology and every one of us has been cold in some way or another one point or another and this is what happens when your body is taken to an extreme in that cold situation tell us about the inspiration for this piece i understand it was not your original idea to write it this way no i was really interested in the physiology of cold and so i came up with this idea of camping out on the coldest spot in the united states lower forty eight states rogers pass montana on the coldest night of winter and then writing about that experience and we've again the physiology of cold well when that coldest night of the year rolled around it was going to be fifty below zero with a fifty mile an hour wind and i decided by a be a really bad idea so i stayed home and i called my editor and said you know how about if i just can't in the backyard and he said no no no we don't like to camp in the backyard why don't you invent a guy who goes out in co old like this and he gets in trouble and then use his experiences to tell the physiology of the human body responding to cold did you do a lot of research with doctors and outdoors experts and actually dig into the science behind this yes i did a tremendous amount of research into the physiology of cold i interviewed actually an old acquaintance from wisconsin who who nearly died of hypothermia by skiing off the wrong side of a mountain in montana twenty degree below zero day and getting caught in the woods to really get his sense of what went through his mind to know situations and i interview emergency room doctors who had warmed up hypothermia victims and kind of sense of what they were like when they came in the story concludes on a poetic and sobering note will you read this paragraph that's close to the end so this is the near the end when the victim who's had near death experience in the cold but he's been rescued and brought to an emergency room and so he's slowly starts to come to consciousness you've traveled to a place where there is no sun you've seen that in the infinite reaches of the universe heat is as glorious and ephemeral as the light of the stars heat exists only where matter exists where particles can vibrate and jump in the infinite winter of space heat is tiny it is the cold that is huge writer and journalist peter stark thank you so much thank you already

"Change but but are you saying that there is some kind of relationship between the two saying it's possible it's an interesting idea i think it's a interesting idea you know we're already into spending hundreds of billions of dollars on this bullshit interesting science where there's not a lot of consensus right now in terms of what will happen in the future in with climate change in colder outbreak i think there's going to be less cold extremes than there are but whether it's noisy and so you're still whether is noisy now this is new like this have these very cold extremes occur on occasion it's just going to be fewer and fewer of them is noisy okay to run around the topic she mentioned the models you know how everybody talks a little bit more than they should when they're on podcasts hallway it's always fun to listen and freakonomics the freakonomics podcast had a the kate marvel on she is a climate scientist at columbia university and the nasa guttered institute for space studies then she sadly had to admit that the climate models suck to we don't know exactly how hot it's gonna get and a lot of that is because of human behavior we don't know what humans are going to do even if you take out all the uncertainty surrounding humans there's still uncertainties in the physical climate system and this is really embarrassing because people are like come on climate scientists like you had one job we're working on it right but the wildcard is really clouds because when we talk about global warming we mean climate change and a lot of stuff is going to change when it warms up and one of those things that's going to change is clouds and clouds a really important in the climate system because they both warm the planet and they call the planet at the same time so why is it's such a wild card what will be the variables that change the behavior or the proliferation whatever of clouds that might dictate temperature so clouds are so hard to understand the really hard to shove in a climate model because they're both really small i there nucleated by tiny tiny grains of sand or dust but at the same time the really really big they cover a giant giant portion of the earth and it's really hard within a computer model of the climate system to simulate something that's both really small really big so basically we suck at it modeling class yeah all right you know what i'm sensing because you had an noaa personnel this one and then the and of course the gung ho woman from n._p._r. and the this guy is this is a a blitz p._r..

"Don't miss n._p._r.'s our of puzzles where games and trivia back now to our conversation with professor mickey hiba of rice university sabrina schaeffer of right now women and the independent women's forum and amanda renteria of emerge america and formerly of hillary for america sabrina schaeffer let me talk to you about women on the political right here's a clip of carly fear rena and her response to some controversial comments donald trump made about her appearance back in two thousand sixteen during the presidential campaigns it's still different for women it's only a woman whose appearance would be talked about running for president never a man and i think that's what women understand that's why women understood what donald trump said about my face in the first place and also what he said about my face in the second place the point is women are half this nation women are half the potential of this nation but somehow we still spend a lot of time talking about women's appearance instead of their qualifications carly fiorina reacting the comments that donald trump made about her appearance during the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign how much of this push to improve the way women are treated in politics sabrina has to do with donald trump and how much of it is other stuff it's been building for a while it seems like the phenomenon of candidate now president trump has kind of catalyzed it but it didn't begin and end with him he came from somewhere right not at all i mean look i think that this president says things that for a whole 'nother show right and i think carly is correct to push back on this i think she was a wonderful candidate but it actually takes us to one of the other issues beyond sort of the sexism question that's keeping more women from running for office and there was a really interesting study out of the university of pittsburgh a couple of years back which showed that it's it's not women's you sort of differences in ability or their differences in confidence levels with men what really seems to keep women out of politics six is the the noisy -ness of the modern campaign and this idea that they won't be able to get their point across they won't be able to have a real conversation about the policies that matter and i think that's what karl was sort of getting at there that that women who wanna get involved with politics want to have a conversation about the issues that matter and unfortunately and it is exacerbated by our twenty four hour news cycle and social media that they often feel like they can't and so that is something that i think we can all work on that we want to bring the conversation back to education or paid leave or workplace regulations or foreign policy or whatever it is that makes you know is important at the at the moment but trying to make the campaign less noisy fed route on our facebook page please have the panelists address the fifty one percent of white women who voted for donald trump after the access hollywood tape leaked and how women candidates will overcome that phenomenon in the future yes well look i think that partisanship is it's very strong we know that sort of our commitment to our party identification is stronger than religious identification can be very difficult for people to to think about voting for someone in another party it could take multiple election cycles for them to do so and so i think we need to keep that in mind this was a particularly divisive election i'm so i'm not sure i can give an exact answer for why people did that but i think that for a lot of republicans ultimately they were willing to sort of hold their nose about things they didn't like about the candidate at the time president trump now because they were hopeful that they would get market based policies that they've been working toward for a long time and people can have different opinions on whether that not you know whether that was the right thing for people to do or not but i think they looked at hillary clinton and they saw more big government in healthcare and more big government in the workplace and.
