"Visit the National Safety Council at NSC dot or GE The mystery surrounding the death of a 20 year old army soldier named Vanessa Gin has sparked outrage across the country and calls for change in Congress. Gan had complained about being sexually harassed by a fellow soldier, but her family says she kept mostly quiet about it because she was afraid it would affect her career. She disappeared back in April. It wasn't until this past week that her remains were found and identified. Not far from Fort Hood, where she was stationed ABC Stephanie Ramos tells us more about Vanessa against disappearance, The army telling the greeting family of Vanessa again that remains found, or indeed her this as martyrs throughout Texas are demanding a congressional investigation into the disappearance and murder of the Army soldier. Army investigators say the 20 year old who went missing in April, was killed and dismembered by a fellow soldier at Fort Hood in Colleen, Texas. Authorities say the suspect in her disappearance, Aaron Robinson shot and killed himself Wednesday as investigators closed in on him. His girlfriend, 22 year old Cecil regular arrested, investigators say she confessed that Robinson told her he bludgeoned GM to death with a hammer. Adding that Robinson then drove her to a nearby river, where they dismember Gideon's body. Using a quote, hatchet or acts and a machete type knife investigators discovering remains about 20 miles away from the base For months. GNC family claims the army did not take her disappearance seriously, and Stephanie joins me now to talk more about it. Tell us more about the case and and why it's getting so much attention. Now. Why did it take so long to make these headlines? This case is getting ah lot more attention now because I believe the family of NS again was so impressively aggressive in getting the word out that Vanessa was missing families also asking, Why did it take the army so long to find Vanessa to put the pieces together? To locate the suspects. More than two months passed before there were any answers. She was from Texas. She always wanted to be in the army. What is the military saying about the harassment and those kinds of accusations that were going on in her case? But as this family, they have said that Vanessa shared with them. She had been sexually harassed by a superior soldier. The Army just recently said they would investigate those claims, but say they have not found any evidence of that sexual harassment and assault is a big problem in the military. But there have been a number of programs put in place to curb these incidents, but it's still a problem. The recent Pentagon survey that was released last year shows that the number of sexual assaults increased in 20 to 20,500 almost the same levels as five years prior, so this is clearly still in You in the military that they're trying to work on with the various programs that they have in place. What kind of changes do you think it could lead to in the military? I mean, First of all, you have to investigate the killing itself, but the eventual changes it might lead to in the military. Did you see that happening? We have heard from the commander at Fort Hood. He acknowledged that he could have done a better job with this entire situation. He has said that he was trying to protect the investigation. And in doing so he failed to really informed the family. Well, I would imagine that a lot of the leaders at Fort Hood have learned from this process, and that's probably something that will work on just the process when they're faced with A difficult situation like this. How do they protect the investigation but also protect the family and let them know what's going on? But as Faras changes to programs right now, we know that they have a sharp program, which is the Army's sexual harassment assault Response in prevention program where soldiers are Educated on the issues surrounding sexual violence, and those who experience incident can report it to a designated victims out of it. No, that's something that me being in the Army reserve for 18 years I've heard about since the start of my career in the Army, and that every six months there's like another group class where you go over the sharp program again. That's their way of ensuring that everybody knows what you do if you're in a situation like that, what the family is doing there, pushing for legislation to get rid of the shark. Oh, Graham. They want an outside agency to take in those reports of sexual harassment. And that's all the family says that this type of program needs to exist outside of the military, because oftentimes that designated victim's advocate is someone in the same unit. Can you tell us how big a deal this case has been in Spanish speaking households? I know the league of United, Latin American citizens is encouraged Latinos not to join on the community have significant is this It's huge. Vanessa's case was on Spanish language newscasts from the start was an American soldier that have gone missing. Yet no one in American media was covering it. Until now. Organizations like glue lack the league of United Latin American citizens there occurred. Valentino's not to join the military until there are answers. I spoke with Lou, Let's CEO And she says about 100 years this organization has protected and defended communities. And if they say they've been the most patriotic National Latino organization, and they understand that the military provides a lot of opportunities for people of color for Latinos for someone who's really trying to make a better life for themselves, But they are so angered that it took this long to find out what happened to Vanessa. They want answers. They want the military to enforce. Their policies and regulation and come forward with more details as to why did this happen to her on the base? Where is the surveillance video? What was the relationship between Robinson, Ajilore and Vanessa? They have so many questions, And they say Latinos shouldn't have joined the military at this point because they're giving their lives for this country yet. Vanessa lost her life on an American.

Independence Day usually means crowds gathering to watch the Rockets red glare of fireworks celebrations, But this year, things were different, thanks to the Cove in 19 pandemic. If you're planning a smaller celebration with your own fireworks, here's a few things to keep in mind. The National Safety Council says. Never allow young Children to handle fireworks.

"The Game Goldeneye came out for Nintendo sixty four when I was nine and I would sit in a room in the dark late at night actually terrified of what felt so incredibly real the blockhead graphics are laughable now but back then I could almost feel myself shudder with wounds the way James Bond did well the way I did. Since it was one of the first popular first person shooters I snipe people from far away. I threw grenades into tiny control rooms full of people I planted mines lanes would explode my enemy with just a button on my watch which was often a friend sitting right next to me on multi player and later in grand theft auto three. I would slam through pedestrians in my car and then smash cops until I had what was called. Five stars and then I just pop off that cheat code which dropped me yet another grenade launcher or a flame thrower thrower and have a terrifying shootout until I finally fall to my knees and the screen would go black for a long time violent video games have been scapegoated by Republicans and and Democrats alike blamed for variety of violence including mass shootings when violent video games. I came on the scene in the nineteen seventies. They looked as simple as you could. Possibly imagine with palm exploding in popularity in the early part of the decade the first real video game controversy came in nineteen seventy six when an extremely simplistic arcade game called death race shook the foundations of American culture described as sick and Morbid by the National Safety Council missile they also stated quote one of its most insidious and probably unrecognized characteristics is its shift from imaginary visual images of destruction as you having having TV violence to actual behavioral attacks taken by the player the person is no longer just a spectator but an actor in the process of creating violence and the game is simple. A player operates a car with the task of running over these little gremlins gremlins the due to the extremely simple graphics too. Many people look like human beings and whenever you ran over Gremlin an electronic scream was heard.

That means four percent on checking out that new restaurant everyone's talking about and four percent on watching your team win at home. You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here. Germany is known for several awesome things including veer brats. And of course, the autobahn bundles Audubon as it's known in Germany is really just if federal highway system there, but to visitors the allure of the autobahn is the speed limit or lack of one cars can top two hundred forty kilometers per hour during normal conditions on this famed freeway that's about one hundred fifty miles per hour. And now, a California legislator is proposing. A Bill that could make the state home to what is being called the American autobahn John Morlock, the Republican state Senator from Orange County introduced state Bill three nineteen in February of two thousand nineteen to relieve traffic congestion along interstate five and state route ninety nine according to the proposed plan both roadways would get new lanes. One northbound and one southbound drivers in the new lanes would not have to abide by a speed limit though, the existing sixty five miles per hour. Limit would remain in effect in the. The existing lanes that's about one hundred and five kilometers per hour. The idea also could provide an alternative California's controversial long-delayed and possibly canceled high speed rail project the proposal comes on the heels of California governor Gavin Newsom announcement that the bullet train as planned is too expensive at an estimated cost of seventy seven billion dollars and would take too long to build. There are no official cost estimates for the Audubon Bill, but in February Senator Morlock told the Los Angeles Times it could cost about three billion dollars. He also said the money would come from the states cap and trade program which requires companies to offset pollution by purchasing credits. If plans move forward the American auto Bahn would be constructed along major freeways with Bela Bach area, which is about eighty miles or one hundred twenty nine kilometers north of Los Angeles at the southern point in Sacramento or Stockton. At the northern end that means theoretically vehicles travelling north at one hundred miles per hour. In the unrestricted lane could make the trip from Sacramento. Tila Beck in about three hours coin that Dr takes over four hours well over depending on traffic. Aside from improving drive times for those along that route the authors of the Bill claim it would also help reduce congestion, which would in turn decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles stuck idling for that reason. The Bill specifies that funding should come from California's greenhouse gas reduction fund which regularly supports transportation and transit projects that reduce pollution. Critics point out. However, the missions go up at high speeds, so encouraging people to drive faster means there wouldn't be any net reduction in pollution, in fact, Bill maga- Vern a spokesperson for the coalition for clean air told SF gate that the net reduction in emissions theory is ridiculous. In addition to the pollution, concerns. Critics are also worried about the risks. To drivers Maureen vocal a spokeswoman for the national safety council told USA today that numerous studies demonstrate that Wednesday's raised speed limits. They can expect an increase in traffic fatalities statistics from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in two thousand seventeen speeding was a factor. In twenty six percent of all traffic fatalities that accounts for nearly ten thousand deaths. Several states across the US have increased speed limits. For instance, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming allow drivers to travel eighty miles per hour on certain highways and Texas allows eighty-five miles per hour along a specific stretch of state highway one thirty that's up to about one hundred and thirty seven kilometers per hour. However, the current maximum speed limit in California is still seventy miles per hour about one hundred thirteen kilometers per hour. With some stretches along the proposed Audubon. Route a little bit lower. Californian's shouldn't get too excited. Though, yet the Bill has a long way before ever becoming law and may never get there. If it passes the vote in the states house and Senate it must then be approved by governor Newsom. For contrast Germany's autobahn covers seven thousand five hundred miles. That's about twelve thousand kilometers, and there are some sections with speed limits. New drivers in Germany are actually trained on the autobahn to learn how to handle the high speeds and the country's licensing process. A lot more difficult time consuming and expensive than it is in the United States if California's autobahn gets approved this three hundred some mile stretch of road might only be a start to a larger system.

"Vehicle, even flips through the owner's manual. But he still has knowledge gaps about his cars. Advanced features a recent AAA study found he's like a lot of people four out of five drivers didn't know their blindspot detectors can miss pedestrians or vehicles at certain speeds, a quarter said they no longer always check their blind spots. If that's the attitude, then it's only a matter of time before you get in an accident UC, Irvine vehicle technology researcher, Hilary Abraham doesn't blame drivers for their misconceptions. Most people looked to their car salesman to explain their. Hi tech features. But she says they don't always have the answers the onus is really being placed on the consumer to find information, but it's really difficult to find first drivers have to sort through all the jargon advanced cruise control on one car is active cruise control on another or intelligent cruise control or distraught. Plus, automatic emergency breaking. Has over forty different names. And Alex Epstein at the nonprofit national safety council says each one works differently. Some don't stop you. Some just slow you down some can't see pedestrians others can. And the problem is there's no common nomenclature out there. There is no commonality. He says many drivers deactivate the features because they don't understand them and find them annoying automakers acknowledged the confusion Andy Christian sin works on advanced safety features for Nissan. He says automakers shouldn't try to explain all the complex limitations instead customers need to keep in mind. One guiding rule these technologies aren't driving for them. They're still driving. They are still in full control of these systems of helping in the background the national safety council thinks drivers should know the individual limitations to explain them. The council's launched a website and a smartphone game of all things. But Epstein says there's only one real solution to educating drivers education needs to be done by the automakers in the vehicle because every system is different. Because if even the smartphone game can come with a tutorial when you first opened it why can't the car in.
