Judge Dismisses New Mexico Lawsuit Against Google Over Children’s Data Privacy
"A Federal Court has dismissed a privacy lawsuit against Google. The suit brought by the state of New Mexico had alleged that Google knowingly spied on students and their families through its suite of cloud based products for schools. Here's a reporter Sara needle men with more according to the lawsuit. The state alleged that Google collected troves of personal information, including students, physical locations, the websites visit. What they searched for on the Internet. Even videos that they looked on youtube and the state also said that students in even though students the parents can opt out of allowing google reader data. The lawsuit alleges that that option is buried in settings where parents will likely never see it. In her ruling, the judge wrote that even though Google had buried that option to opt out the law does not require that the notice be written in terms that a child would understand. The judge also pointed to recent guidance from the Federal Trade Commission which says that schools can serve as intermediaries for parental notice and consent. New Mexico's Attorney General's that he disagrees with the outcome of the case and that the State would continue to litigate to protect children's privacy.
$215M in BP oil spill money to restore Louisiana marshes
"Louisiana will get nearly $215 billion in BP oil spill money for two projects planned to restore more than 4600 acres of Mars and other habitat in the New Orleans area, according to Louisiana's governor John Bell Edwards. The money is from BP is $8.8 billion Settlement for natural resource is damage caused by an oil well blowout. It's a bit more than 100 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and killed 11 oil platform workers, But
Why 1 million coronavirus deaths is only just the beginning
"Yesterday Norman the world clock devote one million deaths from covid nineteen since this began less than a year ago it's been reported by the Johns Hopkins University. Dashboard, which is a pretty morbid side that keeps keeps an eye on all this sort of stuff apart from the one million deaths we've got thirty three point three, million cases in counting. And it's amazing to think that this all started from one person probably about less than a year ago. Yeah. Ten months ago November, that's the smart money is one person in China from a Bat Or Bats and moved into on ESPN. Is, an extraordinary number. And this is not necessarily going to slow down as many countries go into the second way. So we're at one million. What's the chance? Do you think we'll get to two million? Oh, I think that we'll get to two million without too much trouble unfortunately. We've got view of the United States figures on that Hopkins sites the United States numbers are going back up. There were going down a couple of weeks ago or through a few weeks ago and other going back up. Second Wave Solidifying in Europe France, not come back to France and a minute. So I think that we will get to the the the second million sadly tragically and low to middle income countries are really just getting going with this and there that just don't have the medical facilities that we do into in terms of helping people who've got severe illness. So unfortunately, this is going to go on. So when you look at also where the number of deaths really have. occurred it seems like about ten countries account for more than seventy percent of the debts. Obviously, the US is the big one there nearly a fifth. That's about two hundred and something thousand followed by Brazil India Mexico the UK Italy, where do you think that the new deaths will likely come from? Where is the the virus currently growing? It's going to come from those countries probably because they're the one seeing second wave in the second wave could well be worse than I. I wouldn't be surprised if that looks pretty similar. In some other countries, you're not necessarily going to know what's happening because they're not doing enough testing to really be sure how much corona virus they've got many people are dying of it. So I think it's in countries with doing testing that you're going to see the effect and it's likely I mean you see a million? It's likely that it's seven to ten million in reality. Because we are underestimating the amount of coronavirus around. So one million is just what we know about seven to ten is probably what the real figure actually is, and that's really scary. You mentioned the the second wives coming through a lot of countries and where in Europe, in particular saying a lot of cases suddenly jump up a lot from where they were. But. We're not actually saying the death toll yet follow. Why do you think that is all and do you think that it's likely that that's going to continue that trend so one reason you see a delay in the deaths appearing is that it takes a couple of weeks. People become seriously ill, and then we can be seriously over quite a long time. So that's one reason why it's a delay. There's probably a reduced death rate as well because the getting better at treating people in intensive care with decks meth zone, which reduces death rates by twenty percent nursing tummy not using ventilators and also the older people are so socially isolating themselves wearing masks. So they're tending not to get infected, and so the bias infections towards younger people who tend not to die of covid nineteen of Ova can get long-term effects we've spoken about. On Kurna cast before and you mentioned France before what did you want to say about France? France. Is reporting an upsurge and the authorities there are really getting worried in its report there that for example, one of the senior doctors and France as told newspapers that they're worried that there's going to be enough medical personnel to be able to deal with the the record number of cases that are appearing in France and that they may run out of intensive care beds. And it's patchy and it's also into an underprivileged areas such as Marseille where there's a lot of overcrowding and there's the worry that the capacity of the French hospital system to cope with could be welcomed a very good hospital system. So you mentioned testing before and there's been quite a few announcements recently about testing the other day we saw one from the World Health Organization about rapid testing and I think we also saw demonstration at the White House by President, trump what's the rapid testing? All about what what's it hoped that it'll achieve take overseas before we get to Australia, what the World Health Organization has done through the gates. Foundation is purchased one, hundred, twenty, million test kids rapid test kits. and. These test kits. One of them in particular is a bit like a pregnancy test where you do a swab, you shake it in some liquid and then you Putin liquid on a test strip and you went fifteen minutes into the. Shows the line or to bend your positive for the virus and it's pretty accurate. It's not quite as accurate as the PTR tests the wonder doing the moment but you don't need the artery. You don't need cars to take your samples to a laboratory then get an Aq- and wait for the results. This is done on the sport fifteen minutes. You've got an answer. So it's a way in resource poor environments to get an answer and it is cheaper than doing the PC artists. In countries like Austrailia, these tests could be used as a way of controlling the pandemic moving forward. What are we going to do in states like Batori and you South Wales even Western Australia with US tonight breaking the ship off the coast of port hedland where everybody's vulnerable to new infections coming in from overseas in particular? HOW ARE WE GONNA? Make sure there's no virus circulating that we're not aware of and mass testing particularly where people gather in large numbers is one way to actually see whether it's almost like screening the population see if you're missing any virus. And you can't really do mass screening with the existing resources because you're just going to clog up the system. If. It's instant testing people are more likely to agree to it because they don't have to hang around. They don't have to isolate themselves until they get a positive result. And it's a way of quickly finding out what's going on in an affordable way. Do you know any plans by the Australian government to get any of these rapid testing kits and and instigate that that type of program with therapeutic goods administration has stralia has approved several of these I think it's four or five of these rapid testing kits so that all they're already available in Australia. The one ones that w chose bought, which is like the pregnancy test. By Abbott, his is still under consideration for approval and there's no reason why wouldn't be approved. So the the tests are available here and available affordable price. The ideal here would be one that self contained. We don't need a little machine sitting on a desk some of them do you have to put it into machine? This one is a shake squeeze onto a strip and just wait for the result and there are others do that as well. So there's no reason why not? No in Victoria the DAUGHERTY institute is testing a way of doing mass testing using the PR test, which is the old test if you like the accurate using using saliva and they're testing that in the thousand members of the police force just to work. Out, what is the most efficient way of collecting the saliva? So you could mess testing with the old way of going about it, but the rapid testing is probably more flexible,
Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?
"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling
Global coronavirus deaths surpass 1 million
"One million deaths worldwide. Covad 19 death toll reached that grim milestone on Monday. Here's CBS's Dr David Vegas. This includes over 200,000 United States over 140,000 in Brazil. Over 95,000 in India over 75,000 in Mexico, 42,000 United Kingdom and I could go on. It really is him every country on the
Covid-19 has killed at least 1 million people around the globe
"Today, the world reached a new threshold of misery in the corona virus pandemic. At least one million people have now died of covert 19. That's according to a tally maintained by Johns Hopkins University. Joining us now is NPR Global health correspondent Narrate Eisenman Henery High, So one million lives gone. I mean, it's incredible to think we're reaching this death toll in less than a year. Yeah, it's been just over nine months since the first death was reported in Wuhan, China, and just looking at these numbers. We're seeing that half of these deaths were just in four countries, right? Right, the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico and with the exception of India, these countries are not among the most populous in the world. But in the case of the United States, which has the highest number of deaths that more than 200 for 1000 in Brazil, with more than 140,000 deaths Both of their president's expressed a lot of skepticism about the threat from the virus. The responses were chaotic and deaths surged in July and August and started to come down a bit but are now rising again. Of these four countries also don't just rank highest on total deaths over the entirety of the pandemic in the past week, they've also had the highest number of new deaths. And are there any new hot spots emerging at this point? In Argentina. The daily death toll has been climbing for months and has now really swerved up. European countries like Spain that saw a lot of death a while back, are seeing another upswing. Now you mention India is a special case. Why is that? Yes, it's the world's second most populous nation. So for a country of that size, India's 95,000 deaths isn't relatively speaking. All that high, which is all the more surprising since India is seeing a huge amount of infection, But among people who are contracting the virus there, the share who are dying doesn't seem to be as high is in some other countries. Monica Gandhi is an infectious disease specialist at University of California, San Francisco, she says. One theory is that people in India tend to dress with thes flowing fabrics. So even though it's hard to social distance people could do one thing during all of this, which is pick up their cloth from there. You know outfit and put it over their mouth and nose. If it reduces the amount of hours you get into that you get less sick. I think it could be driving down the severity of infection. That's so interesting. Yeah. You get a lower dose of the virus. Maybe you're more likely to survive. Another theory. Maybe people in India have been more exposed to previous current viruses, which gives them some immunity. Well, speaking of immunity, I mean as more and more people have gotten infected, does that Offer any hope in terms of seeing a slowdown in new cases or even knew deaths, Monica Gandhi says. Quite possibly, this is what's called Herd immunity, of course, and Gandhi stresses it should not be pursued as a strategy, because if you're reaching herd immunity through widespread infections, as opposed to vaccinations Along the way, A lot of people will still die. Rather, she says. Her immunity is a potential helpful effect. We may notice in the coming months. Then again, it is going to get colder in the coming months, at least in the Northern Hemisphere as winter approaches, So do you think that's going to make the pandemic worse? Well, one researcher Jeffrey Shaming of Columbia University, says evidence does suggest the Corona virus transmits better in cold climates. People spend more time indoors, the virus will have more opportunities. To move from person to person and be more neatly transmissible. That works against us.
Time Travel Theoretically Possible Without Leading To Paradoxes, Researchers Say
"An undergraduate at the University of Queensland has apparently proven that time travel without paradoxes is possible. This is from a new paper published last week in the journal classical and quantum gravity by the student Germane to bar and his professor Fabio Kosta quoting popular mechanics. The math itself is complex, but it boils down to something fairly simple time travel discussion focuses on closed time like curves or CTC's something Albert Einstein I posited until Barton cost say that as long as. Just two pieces of an entire scenario within a C. T. C. or still in causal order when you leave the rest is subject to local free will I results show that C. T. C.'s are not only compatible with determinism and with the local free choice of operations but also with a rich and diverse range of scenarios in dynamical processes, their paper concludes end quote. In other words stepping on a butterfly during a dinosaur hunting expedition would not entirely change the present world returned to and the way Mardi MC fly prevented his parents from meeting or accidentally left behind a sports ALMANAC for biff defined would not drastically change his present reality either. Instead, the mathematical research shows that time travel would be more akin to vendors endgame something that matches the findings from Los, Alamos Laboratory earlier this summer. Side No. Los. Alamos is also one of the few labs messing around with plutonium. So All I'm saying is if you see a delorean cruising around New Mexico, maybe watch out. But essentially, the findings say that you can go back to the past and mess with things a little bit but it will basically smooth over and eventually lead to the same results preventing things like the grandfather paradox in which you go back in time, kill your own grandfather, and then prevent yourself the time traveller from ever existing. To Warren constant used relevant example from our present time to put their complex math into plain language quoting a press statement by the researchers say you traveled in time in an attempt to stop covid nineteen patient zero from being exposed to the virus? However, if you stopped that individual from becoming infected that would eliminate the motivation for you to go back and stop the pandemic in the first place this is a paradox been inconsistency that often leads people to think that time travel cannot occur in our universe. Logically, it's hard to accept because that would affect our freedom to make any arbitrary action. It would mean you can time travel. You cannot do anything that would cause a paradox to occur. In the coronavirus patient zero example, you might try and stop patient zero from becoming infected, but in doing so you would catch the virus and would become patient zero or someone else would no matter what you did. The salient events would just recalibrate around you try. As you might to create a paradox, the events will always adjust themselves to avoid any inconsistency end quotes. So our timelines are a bit more self-correcting than we thought and trying to adjust the time line. We're currently living in to go back to one where perhaps a different person won an election and the berinstain bears are still the Bernstein bears probably isn't going to happen. As NPR quoted from Stephen, King's time travel novel eleven twenty to sixty three about trying to prevent the Kennedy assassination quotes. The past is obdurate. It doesn't want to be changed.
The CDC Doesn't Know Enough About Coronavirus In Tribal Nations
"In August more than five months into the pandemic Jordan. Bennett. was about to see some data she'd waiting for for a long time. Yeah. No a truly I was really excited because there hasn't been any data on American Indians or Alaska natives since the start of the pandemic from the CDC that's right. Until last month while universities had released a good bit of data about Covid and its effect on some. Native, American and Alaskan natives. The CDC really hadn't Jordan would know she's a reporter and editor with the Public Media News organization Indian country today she's also a citizen of the Navajo nation and she's been covering the pandemic since the beginning as well as a twenty twenty census and all of Indian, country no big deal just all of Indian country Yeah. The whole. That data that she'd been waiting to? was released by the government as part of a weekly CDC report in mid August the title of the top red. COVID nineteen among American Indian and Alaska Native Persons in twenty three states and when i read it, it was Kinda already something that I knew and a lot of native public health experts already knew and what I was really looking for is you know what is new that they gave to us the report said because of existing inequities, native Americans and Alaskan natives are three point five times more likely to get the corona virus than white people but anyone who'd been looking at tribal nations as closely as Jordan had could have told you that they were. Being hit especially hard for example, at one point earlier this year, the Navajo nation, which spans parts of Arizona New Mexico and Utah The nation's now reporting nearly four thousand in nineteen cases in a population of one hundred, seventy, five thousand had an infection rate greater the New York State. Eight PM curfews on weekdays and on weekends a fifty seven hour lockdown, not even the gas stations are open. That was just one tribal nation that got a lot of attention. Many others had infection rates that were also higher than the hard hit states in the northeast like the Colorado River Indian tribes in Arizona and California the Yakima in Washington state or the White Mountain Apache tribe in Arizona. And data from the states where many of those reservations are located weren't included in the CDC report, which gets it a larger problem. If there's data had you know where the impact is, how do you know where you could send testing to where there's a lack testing? You have to have that data in order to create policies into also figured out how to distribute vaccines. This episode was the CDC does and doesn't know about Covid in native American and Alaskan. Native tribal nations and how Jordan is working to get more data to the people who need it most I mattie Safai and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. This report from the CDC which linked to in our episode notes does say two important things. The fact that native Americans and Alaskan natives are more likely to get the virus. That's one. The second thing is that compared to white people young folks in those communities people under eighteen tested positive at higher rates. When it comes to these findings, the CDC did make one thing clear. Here's one of the researchers on the study, Sarah Hatcher it really important that the. This disproportionate impact. Likely driven by versus stinks social and economic inequity not because of some biological or genetic. Persisting social and economic inequities we're talking about access to healthy food housing income levels, stuff like that. Here's Jordan again the and other just like public health infrastructure or in like the lack of investment in the public health infrastructures in native communities and you have over credit households, anders a number of inequities that this pandemic is bringing out. More on that in a bit. But first Jordan says that the CDC report is notable for what it does not include this report did leave out tons of cases right now it only looked at twenty three states and it didn't include Arizona. Is One of the hot spots in Indian country. And they account for at least a third of all the cove nineteen cases according to the report. They also left out states like Oklahoma Washington. California Colorado thousands and thousands of cases. And researchers from the CDC were up front about leaving all that data out. Here's Sara Hatcher. Again, our announcement is really not generalize beyond those twenty three state overall. And we're not really able to speculate whether we expect the overall rate to be higher or lower we. The reason some states got left out was because the they recorded about race and ethnicity including that for native, American, and Alaskan Native Cova Cases was incomplete and that was really at least surprising to me because. I like how can you not capture this data right here you have Arizona where you know again, the Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian community Healer River, ending community, White Mountain Apache their cases are thousands You had the tone, nation and Navajo Nation and the possibly Yawkey tribe. There's just thousands of cases in this one St. So many gaps like in this data as well. I think just points to how the CDC doesn't really know tribal communities and know that Indian health system and how it's built instead up. So, let's talk about that. Now. It's much more complicated than this. But basically, when tribal nation signed treaties giving up their land, the federal government promised to provide them with healthcare and set up the Indian Health Service, a government funded network of hospitals and clinics. To deliver adequate healthcare to tribal nations but that's not what's happening right now and what the pandemic is very much highlighting. For years the IHS has been way underfunded per person the federal government spends about half the amount of money on the IHS. Medicaid. And that's part of the reason a lot of tribes over time have step to establish their own privately run tribal health clinics. So throw history. They all IHS. But then tribes wanted to you know take hold and own and operate their own healthcare. So that's how these tribal health clinics came about. At this point, the large majority of healthcare facilities are operated by tribes about eighty percent in those facilities are encouraged but not required to share data that they collect on the virus but Jordan says, that's something a lot of them do not want to do not with the federal government or even with reporters like her even now as a Navajo WOM-. In as a Navajo reporter, it's also difficult for me to try to get the data. Because then I understand that like I grew up around my background is in health and so I I know you know it's because of settler colonialism but also research to a lot of times and medical research you have researchers going in parachuting in parachuting out and they don't give back that data it at least from everything that I've seen the past several months trust is like the main factor in this That's one thing trust. There's also the reality that doctors can get race or ethnicity wrong in California where it's pretty prevalent from what sources tell me some doctors will just check a box on native people because of their surname, their surnames, more likely to be coming from like a Hispanic or line next or origin like Dominguez or Garcia or you know today's assumed there Um Latin x but they're not, and if those people wind up dying that seem incorrect data can wind up on their death certificate right? You don't know what's going on or the pact of the pandemic if you don't have that data if you don't know what the person died from. How are you going to prevent it and prevent more from dying from it? These factors lack of trust underfunded public health infrastructure, racial classification all add up to a picture of the pandemic that isn't complete. For example, there's an alarming lack of covid hospitalizations data for native American or Alaskan native folks stuff like if somebody was admitted to the hospital, the ICU or even died compared to white people, CDC only has about a third of that information for Alaskan natives and native Americans and I think that's just again it just goes back to how well you know the state health department or even like the CDC or the public health experts they're not these tribal communities

These beautiful hotel cools all these people having fun and enjoying themselves and we thought no, one would be great if we can just go in there for the day and walk in and out of them if we could done the day enjoying the amenities said, no. You can't come in unless you haven't overnight room and so. I was sitting in my dorm room at Brown University Are Studying economics at the time and this idea hitting I thought wait a minute. Now, what if we created this system for all these beautiful hotels around the world sell more than just the overnight room and so we created vacation to solve that problem for hotels empty space that they want to sell and those people that are here on vacation looking to try new hotel properties or adversity. Now, all of those locals that are looking for a way to take on quote vacation or station on their sted one of some of the twenty five cities that you're him. So at some other cities, include Miami we are do have ocal here in Los Angeles for obviously launching more we have stuff in New York. We have a number of hotels throughout the Caribbean we watched up in Chicago interestingly enough places. In. Arizona Hawaii. Texas work kind of goes on. Well, good luck matthew the APP is called daycare even
Why a private section of the border wall is allegedly failing
"By Iraq war veteran Bryan Cole Fatchett, triple amputee. They wanted to raise a billion dollars to quote build Trump's wall. The targeted mission Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, one of the busiest illegal border crossing areas in the country, all on the border. We're here building. You gotta help out. They had started producing the video's promoting this project and they were on the property. They started clearing the property before anyone really knew what was going on The company Clearing the riverbank to build the private wall was Fisher Sand and Gravel. Tommy Fisher, the company's CEO, had been trying and failing to land a lucrative border wall contract from the government. Since 2017. When the Trump administration began soliciting Wall design concepts. Fisher was one of the companies to put up a prototype. Officials of the Department of Homeland Security said it had design flaws. A second bid was also rejected. Frustrated Tommy Fisher took another approach. We really believe with our patent pending system, we could bring sexy. Back to construction. He became a fixture on Fox News, the president's favorite network at the time, people time sounding less like a contractor and more like a contestant on a reality show pandering to an audience of one, You know, hopefully the president will see this as well. And he's a guy who says he can cut through bureaucracy two weeks after that appearance on Fox In April of 2019. I don't know if you heard about this contractor that said he could build the whole wall for a lot cheaper than anybody else. Yes, I have. We're dealing with him. Actually, Fisher Comes from North Dakota. Recommended strongly by a great new senator. As you know, Kevin Cramer, by May of 2019 Tommy Fisher had the president's attention but still couldn't land a contract to build the government's wall. The Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees border wall construction, pointed to the company's lack of experience building border walls to prove they could fissure teamed up with we build the wall. First in New Mexico and later here on the banks of the Rio Grande admission. On the banks of any rivers difficult. But building on the raging Rio Grande is especially challenging, made more complicated because the U. S Mexico border but straight down the middle of it. So any plans to build on it must be approved by the International boundary and Water Commission for I, B. W C. Sand and gravel didn't get that approval before they started. Bulldozes. What steps did they skip? All of them. What should they have done? They should have gone to the I B W c to the A and presented their plan an actual plan. What about this idea that you know this is private money being used on private land and a landowner could do whatever he wants. They absolutely can do whatever they want on their property. As long as it doesn't affect other people's property. And you think the wall infringes on other clearly does. The way the bollards were built is gonna cause clogging of that wall, So those followed the trash or debris could get stuck in there and then the waters. It's a giant break, just like a rake in your yard. It's going to catch all that debris and redirect that water. Penna filed a lawsuit on behalf of a neighboring wildlife refuge called the National Butterfly Center, which feared the wall would cause flooding to its property. U. S government also suit on behalf of the I. B. W C. Good walls make good neighbours. But this wall did not. We've got rogue priest running around anti Trump anti Won't we build the walls? Bryan Cole fragile, launched attacks against anyone who opposed their wall. Falsely saying the national Butterfly Centre was the site of a rampant sex trade and that the Army Corps of Engineers was part of the deep state even took game and Father Royce Nights a local priest to oppose the Trump wall. Accusing him of promoting child trafficking. Also not true. We build the wall people came after you personally and that's something I didn't even know who they were. They're coming after the local priest. Yeah, I guess you're not from around here comes from around here. We can. Even Mom and Dad can disagree about things without being mean and nasty. Last December, Brian Colfax bragged in an interview that we build the wall had a direct line to the White House. We have Crispo back and Steve Bannon A lot of people that are tied in with the Trump administration, so we're able to back channel things to the Trump Administration and let them know what we're doing, But what they were doing was falling apart. A recent engineering inspection after summer storms revealed deep gashes under the foundation of the wall. That's Mariana Trevino, right, who runs the Butterfly center line underneath it. This was a normal seasonal rainfall and what happened to the wall the foundation washed out from under enormous sections of it, His attorney said after this, that this is just a normal part of new construction if you walked out of your new house And had a 30 FT hole under your home foundation. Would you consider that normal? There's the end of the hall right

Sustainability with Queer Brown Vegan
"I, say us. It's so lovely to meet you. I'm so glad to be talking to you today. Thank you so much again for having me glad Chris. I'm over the moon as you know because we we're we're super fans like the. Stock you on Instagram we found profile didn't we and I think I just loved title Queer Brown Vegan I thought it was. NEAT and I love the way you present your ideas like it's really colorful and beautifully made I. Think it's a really good thing you're doing that you're. Talking about. Urgent subject but making it kind of. Fascinating and interesting and alive for people not to skating because that's one of the things we've. Talked about like, how do you? Do what you're doing, which is well, what do you? What what would you say? You do tell us what you how you define yourself. I would describe yourself as a queer environmental educated that provides accessible environmental education on content for anyone interested in learning about environmentalism is as you live zero waste. What does that? What does that mean? Zero ways you know for a lot of has a broad term of. The Way to define it but zero waste and lowest to me it looks into higher able to create redesign the way that you view plastic and so understanding it from an individual impact, but also a global impact. So understanding that reducing your waste in different ways but also acknowledging the fact that the plastic crisis is a global environmental justice that is disproportionately harming black indigenous people clerked me globally and now we have countries that. That heavily exploited by colonialism are dealing with the amounts of waste that is usually delivered from countries like the UK and United States with waste where do you know what are you? What are you talking to us from? Los Angeles. Oh I thought you are and I thought you were in Queens New York, is that I recently moved back home grown up but I'll be back in New York and twenty one. Okay. So you're. So you're I in La boy and tell us your story because your upbringing really affected how you have come to this. Place as the career, Brian Vegan doesn't it growing up? My parents had immigrated an one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s onto la from Mexico and so we grew up low income living in a way with affordable housing programs or programs that are sponsored by the government and so many of these. In, Los Angeles are known to live in communities are already low income but that are nearby toxic facilities or places that generate noise pollution in some sense in. So my aspects of environmentalism grew at a young age because of like based off survival. So it wasn't necessarily because I thought about being was about others what we have. So have to reuse it and use what I have to, and as I got older I. Started learning about environmentalism making these connections within myself saying like wise the air quality in my neighborhood this way why? What is climate change? How does that interconnect to me and so the older are realizing my own identity great being clear and then I realized the people who usually talk to me or that represented in the environmental spheres We're usually straight white men and so I ask myself like Oh. Is this this is Interesting because I don't see anyone who looks like or comes from a community, and so the ones university I realized the fact that many of the classes were dominated by, of course, white students and not to say that it was bad. But it was to say that there was a lack of diversity representation within those movements in you know having the lack of support having to deal with certain spaces in the environmental field dealing. With Homophobia in like thirty remarks being told to me I realized that that wasn't necessarily space I needed to be an and so leaving after college that's something I want to cultivate it because had I known that there was a educator growing up or had had a mentor like that it would have changed my outlook in environmentalism but instead I had to go through all those hurdles and challenges to unlearn that things that I was taught. To really get to where I'm at today. So you felt that you were being given environmentalism from a very straight white mine ankle and you're like a whole other spectrum out here is. It's interesting that. As. Well, isn't it like do how poverty and like like I remember like growing up like I went to a very smart school wherever and money, and so if you brought in your lunch in a plastic pot, for example, it was kind of considered like you poor. So, there's so much attachment to. What did they do? What did they push wants? Did they went to the school lunches or? Like, yeah, it was just buy something or you know you just go out and buy something whereas like. and. So there's a lot of like use. The is about image know like if I can afford to buy this thing that I can throw away. Of. People. See people striving for that. Almost it's funny. Do you do you think that is I think the idea of consumerism is so ingrained in all of us you know whether would be in our television show our media art magazine anything read it's all about Centrum consumers at a young age even to I remember kids like shaming. We're having thirsted close or even does the fact of like reusing resource that is now seen today as like environmentally-friendly now, which is great to see that shift but back then I, think it's because we ingrained in our own children in our own parents consumerism is a good thing. Yeah well, especially in the say, that's like the kind of the currency celebrity and. Consumers Arctic the to. What degree
How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

Whispers of trouble - listen to your plane
"If airplanes could talk what would they say? Well, they can talk if we learn how to listen and pay attention sometimes the languages subtle in a new sound or vibration. Sometimes they scream as when my friends number five cylinder unexpectedly dropped valve resulting in a broken piston, complete oil loss and prompt engine failure. Some sudden catastrophic failures are impossible to predict, but others can be predicted and possibly avoided. Ask pilots. A mental note of what our instruments usually indicate and look for deviations that could indicate A. OR PENDING FAILURE Just because the indication is still in the green range does not mean that nothing is wrong knowing the usual indications for our own engine will allow us to listen for any deviation and investigate the issue. I am fortunate and get to fly three hundred hours a year commuting to work as an emergency room physician. My Commute is from Statesboro Georgia to lagrange. One to two times each week, the fight one, hundred and seventy, two nautical miles and takes about seventy minutes each way in my highly modified North American navien. My engine was a continental I o five, fifty be that was freshly overhauled just a few years ago. I always change the oil between twenty five and thirty five hours instead of waiting until fifty hours. On two occasions, my engine instruments have displayed unusual oil pressure indications. The first indication was in June two, thousand sixteen during a return trip from New Mexico. The June weather was beautiful and via far but very hot all along the route home. During the flight the oil pressure ran about five to seven PSI lower than usual but otherwise acted normally oil temperature was less than two hundred degrees Fahrenheit for the entire flight. The engine ran great and continue to produce plenty of power I. nervously watched the pressure as it stayed steady in the green range and continued our trip home. The oil consumption remained as usual during that trip and we arrived home on eventually. Once home. The oil was changed in a new paper element oil filter installed prior to this oil change I was using a reusable stainless steel mesh oil filter that was removed and disassembled for inspection at each oil change. On Inspection, I found that the Steel Mesh had accumulated some residue that narrowed the openings in the Mesh. I, reasoned that the oil filter was restricting flow and oil pressure. So I returned to using paper element oil filter that is discarded at each oil change the oil pressure return to normal and I return to flying with my usual oil pressure of forty five to forty six PSI in cruise flight. That engine continued to run great and showed no problems. Regular oil filter cutting revealed no metal and oil analysis was always normal. So normal that I skipped cutting the filter and oil analysis when I changed the oil in December of twenty seventeen. I continued to fly Navien until late February twenty eighteen when something changed. I was flying to work and noticed my oil pressure was once again lower than. It was down into the Middle Thirties but once again remained in the green range and steady. I increased RPM from low cruise at two thousand, three hundred to hike cruise at two, thousand, five hundred and the oil pressure returned to the usual forty, five to forty, six PSI. The oil temperature was around one hundred and sixty degrees, Fahrenheit. which is the usual oil temp in cool weather for that engine. I was concerned about the oil pressure indication but I had seen this occurrence previously the weather was good and the pressure was backup to usual. So I continued on to lagrange. Three days later I returned home to Statesboro. Now comes the lucky and scary part. The flight home was night I F R and I flew the Runway three to approach into statesborough. Before departing I checked everything carefully and the oil pressure on run-up was normal. I watched the oil pressure carefully and flew home that high cruise power setting. I landed uneventfully but noticed that oil pressure at idol was a lot higher than usual. Low Minimum oil pressure at idol with the engine. Hot is ten PSI. But mine was always fifteen to twenty PSI. This night I was looking at thirty five PSI at idol with the engine hot. I had never seen idol oil pressure that high but was not concerned. I push the airplane into my home hanger and return the next morning to change the oil. The tachometer showed the engine had accumulated fourteen hundred and forty five hours since overhaul. Drained the oil and replace the oil filter and began refilling the crank case with fresh oil. When I decided, it was time to cut the oil filter. I found a large amount of metal in the filter. The oil that drained out of the filter was filled with metal flakes that look like silver glitter on my hand. What happened I had not cut the oil filter or submitted an oil sample at the last oil change. So there was no way of knowing what I would have found then. Had I, not cut an examined the oil filter on this oil change. I would not have found the metal in time and bad things would have happened on the next flight. When I disassembled the engine, I found the two of the main bearings had turned in the crank case, and we're obviously very near having a catastrophic failure. Now. This engine did not vibrate knock or suffering power loss. The only in-flight indication of any problem was changed from the usual oil pressure readings with the actual reading remaining in the normal range. As Buck my old flight instructor would have said she was talking to you. I was not listening carefully enough but survived just the same. This is the accident that never happened simply because I cut the oil filter. Had I, submitted the oil for analysis and waited for the results before flying again, the problem could have been discovered, but I fly too often to await test results. I would've received an urgent phone call from my oil analysis company, but it would have been after the accident. My current practice is to cut every oil filter at time of oil change cutting the oil filter while messy is free and gives immediate feedback. This simple process can save your airplane and your life.

"Weather related. However, what we don't know we've started seeing this before the weather event happen so that that is troubling and it brings up the question is what else is contributing to the? Odd. Behavior was seeing and birds and the large number of deaths were seeing and birds, and so it could be related to the fires. Some birds may have had to change their migratory routes they may have been forced to leave early they may have inhaled smoke and have some damage to their lungs. When you talk about odd behaviors, what does that mean? What are you saying? Well. We're seeing birds in lethargic conditions where they're just sitting on the ground and you can walk up to them. We're seeing birds that normally are in shrubs and trees feeding on insects are running around on the ground chasing insects down we have. Seen swallows die in groups roosting together and an old nest by a barn swallow up to a dozen. We've seen birds up in northern. New Mexico by the Sulphur Hot Springs Diane Small, Group, some of them even in the hot springs, others kind of grouping into. Caverns in the ground or outside of a little. Cavern burrow in the ground. So just very odd behavior. And we have had very odd weather. You mentioned some of it there but certainly, it's been an unusual year and it's been an unusual series of years. How much of this is related to climate change? Do you think? It's at this the scientists in me will say at this point, we really don't know but certainly here in New Mexico has been very dry year most of the deaths that we're seeing are insectivores and if these birds are having to. Reroute themselves and then there this normally not a very active stopover site for birds during the migratory period and we're seeing some birds that we normally don't see if they have to if they're landing here and then there isn't enough food for them to feed on certainly enough insect. Certainly, that could cause some of them to starve to death and that is a drought related phenomenon. Is there anything that can be done about this by humans? Yeah that's a hard question i. what we need to do right now is kind of get an idea of the magnitude of the issue. So one of the things that we've done is we have. A platform on I naturally. And it's called the Southwest Avian Mortality Project, and this is where folks Upload pictures that they see or share observations. So that will help us understand the magnitude of this event When you lose this many birds that's got to have an effect on the overall population and these species that are being hurt by this. Absolutely you know we have seen an estimated three billion birds die since nineteen seventy across the United States. We've seen drastic declines in insects in the United States, North America, and these have had enormous. You know the the insect, the declines in insect populations. Obviously, we'll have an enormous impact on the activists, birds and and event like this where so many birds have died. On populations that are already stressed and.
Moo-Dunnit: How Beef Replaced Bison on the American Plainsand Plate
"Nearly, all the hamburgers in America today come from cows that spend at least part of their lives on the Great Plains that famous open range in the. American. West. So that is where we will go to start our story today to the American West before it was American before Europeans and their horses started showing up there in the late sixteen hundreds. So before there were cattle and before kind of United States had control of the planes in the. West you had a variety of American Indian policies, groups like the Comanche themselves essentially a very powerful empire across the West and they were hunting bison numbers for that time are kind of hard to come by. But it's estimated that there were about thirty to sixty million bison roaming through the middle of north. America. These are big grazing animals and what they can do is they can turn the abundant grasses of the West into animal flesh which then hunter's. Can Eat and so they become the foundation of the economy whenever I'm in the same spot as a cow I'm always kind of amazed at how big they are. But Bison is a heck of a lot bigger and faster. They can run about thirty five miles an hour faster than most horses, and they can pivot on both front and back hooves and literally turn on a dime. These are terrifying and dangerous creatures. It's not the kind of animal you'd. WanNa meet on foot and other key thing about them is that they're herd animals. So they gather at times massive herds, massive herds that would have represented a very appetizing dinner plus some warm and sturdy buffalo-hide imagine writing towards a herd of kind of terrifyingly huge bison if you're safely on horseback but how did native communities had them before horses very carefully so you could really only do it in the spring or summer when Bison gathered together to mate. You would do it on foot and you could work as a group, but it was difficult. You couldn't really do it fulltime. You could hunt by some kind of part time before the Horse, the planes really belong to the. Bison. But we now think of as plains tribes actually lived on the edges of the planes combining a little small-scale hunting with some farming. But once you had horses than well-coordinated hunters could hunt the animals very efficiently. The horses came with the Spanish. The native communities got a hold of some of those horses and horses quickly caught on they even changed the politics of the region, the communities that had more horsepower like the comanche kind of took over and they. Would kind of dominate everybody else and basically built these very successful empires empires that were built on Bison, hunting them and trading them with European settlers on the east coast. So people like the Comanche Kiowa were very successful from horseback and they may have actually been causing slow population declines in Bison. The story I heard him school is that white people killed off all the Bison and the truth is they did but the bison were already under a little bit of extra pressure. Thanks to the horses that white people brought. But waited until the spread of ranching and Commercial Bison hunting from Euro Americans to really collapse and by one thousand, nine, hundred, there's only maybe three hundred bison left. The West from at least thirty, million bison to just three hundred and about fifty years that by some more systematically wiped out in only a few decades thirty million bison were eventually replaced by thirty million cows de Bison izing roses really got started in the mid eighteen hundreds when people of European descent or beginning to move out west of the plains and start settling there. It was all sorts of people particularly I when it was scale so When what is Texas belong to Mexico you had lots of Mexicans who are setting up ranch's then you've got kind of poor white settlers anglos coming into the region setting things up as the American civil war approaches you got people who are kind of second and third sons of wealthy southern plantation families who can't inherit the family plantation and so they kind of go west to a place like Texas to set up kind of these small scale ranch's. Looked out at the planes and they thought, okay there are huge rangy creatures that live there why not replace them with other huge rangy creatures but why didn't they just stick with the bison that were already living there bison meat is freaking delicious and there is more of it per animal because Beissner. Bigger and bonus bison more already perfectly ecologically suited to the native. Grasslands and climate conditions. That's a really interesting question. I've I've thought about it a lot because in some ways, bison would be a very natural animal to raise. But then when I was reading diaries and things, I found that these people they were kind of disgusted bison they didn't view that as an animal that could be farmed. They saw it as a wild animal. and. So what's interesting about that is on one level people go with what they knew. Euro. Americans know about raising cattle, but another thing gets into their ideas of what is civilized and Dave you. The Bison is not the kind of animal that a civil in their minds a civilized people would raise and so cattle is the way to do it. So why couldn't settlers just leave the? Bison alone race cattle separately well, they could but the animals can't live on top of each other. So if thirty million animals are occupying most of this land, it has to be taken another thing though is that the Bison of the foundation of wealth of native peoples and if the sellers want WanNa take control by force of this land while they want to eliminate the means of support. And the foundation of power of people like the Comanche and so they view attacking the Bison as a way of achieving their other goal, which is taking as much land as possible for themselves and for the United States and what's funny is that difference in cattle is what justifies to them taking the land but the similarity is what means they can be successful as ranchers that similarity between. Bison, and cattle at first these early cattle ranchers was small potatoes they in their cows were outnumbered and overwhelmed compared to the native people and Bison. Well, the herds were relatively small. It's kind of like a few hundred animals. So it's it's a few enough animals that you disarm people who manage them and kind of ride around taking care of them are the same ones who owned them. And it's it's pretty mobile. You know you don't have kind of official ownership of the land. You're just kind of occupying land where you don't find any other settlers and you're hoping that the nearby fort or the US military will protect you from violence even though you're of course, using land that other people live on like the Kiowa

It was fun to be here and. As House races across the country. Heat up looking at them each week on here now in for this week's district profile, we turn to New Mexico's second congressional district Democratic Congresswoman. Social Torres small faces a challenge from former state representative Republican Yvette Herrell. It's a rematch from twenty eighteen. Joining us now is Joe Monahan. Who writes the blog New Mexico politics with Joe Monahan Joe Welcome thanks for having me well. A Torres small is only the Second Democrat to represent this district in decades. Can you tell us more first of all just about the district? The district is huge. It's one of the largest congressional districts in America and extends basically completely south, and West and east, from Albuquerque, which is basically in the center of the state, is largely rural district. Except for Dona Ana County, which has the city of Las Crisis, which is the center of Progressive Politics in the district, and where Torres small comes from, but the rest of the district leans conservative and often Republicans so it makes for a very interesting up well, and let's start with the incumbent Torres.

I'm so chill Torres Small I've spent my career working with new, Mexico farmers and ranchers, protecting water and the water rights they depend on like federal drought, Legislation and funding for new conservation methods.

The president hasn't fixed. The opioid crisis secured the border. Give us a sense of her candidacy. I think that spot kind of sums it up. That spot is about water, which is about as noncontroversial really as you can get at least the way she phrases it.

"Police were looking around, they knew you know they could see the traffic on the road, so they had plenty of warning if they had to get away, was pretty genius hiding place for them, so the FBI then used a pen register. Do you know that is now? It's basically an electronic device that records any numbers called from particular telephone line. And they applied this device to a handful of friends and family of the escapee's that they felt were capable of assisting and resulted in a hit on a call to a motel in Albuquerque FBI and police went to the motel, showed photos to the front desk agent and she recognized them. The entire area was searched, but they were unsuccessful in locating them. They had already left. It, really does feel like they were a step ahead the entire time. They really had a thought out plan. The major concern that the police had was for kinsman and Gilbert. who both murderers and Kim slow was also known as a rapist, and so is Gilbert so there were a huge threat to the community I. Think the at this time the entire state with freaked out. People were scared. people were worried. They were going to run into them so as they're on the run the FBI and And police were working around the clock to find them. Everything seem helpless. Until something happened in Arizona, James had already proven that he was a danger to society and he he showed that as he stalked potential victims in Arizona.

He ties them up and then takes their vehicle as well as their eleven year old daughter and drives away Oh, my God, the parents eventually get free from the restraints somehow and call the police so now the FBI.

He dropped her off behind a restaurant and told her stay here. And he would, he would be back and if she called the cops, he would find her and kill her. She totally ignored him.

"To other facilities to house them until things were cleaned and fixed and everything i. mean the entire prison was like one one wing in particular was completely. Burned out. There I mean not to mention that. They had to clean up everything and. The crime scene. Yeah, everything was a crime scene so because of the cost of keeping those prisoners in other states. because. That was skyrocketing. State legislators started. To bring them back to the state penitentiary only six months after the riots. That's interesting, so it was extremely expensive for New Mexico to have other states house are inmates. That's interesting. I mean you wouldn't think that other states would is do us a solid in like. Give art prisoners in state tuition basically. Yeah I don't know how it works, but I think the other part of the cost was the cost of fixing the prison, so there's with those were also putting pressure on the legislators. Legislators were like. Let's just get some duct tape and figure just put him back in there. They'll be fine superglue. Don't worry about it. My cousin will fix it. He told me after you give them. A twelve pack knows a guy. Just give them a twelve pack I'll be fine. So this happened. Even though the prison really wasn't ready to be reopened I mean six months isn't a long time. So as you can imagine this more problems and more challenges for the inmates in the state, and I'm sure it did nothing to fix the morale issue or any of the issues that actually started the right in the first place, so we have a really long history of kind of cutting corners in the state. Yeah, yeah, so over the years between the story until you and the prison riot there were at least six killings of inmates and guards in the months following their return to the state penitentiary. Moses, yeah, and many of the killings were related to the riot, as inmates were fearful that they would be snitched on for killing their fellow inmates, so they did the only logical thing they could think of. Kill people to stop them from testifying against. That I mean, it makes sense because there were prosecutions that we're going to follow the riot, so they're like. I know what I'll do. I'll just start killing people totally rational. The pattern of death and violence continued for years following the riot, and there was a ton of fear in the prisons that in New Mexico. The tensions boil over again and this carried over into the late eighties, while the state did not have another riot like the one in nineteen eighty, the tensions and the fear continued to fester so now let's fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six. My friend. Governor, Tony Tonia. That's Tony with a e and why Tony Tony Tony. He decided he was going to commute. The death sentence a five convicted murderers who were on death row. The former governor was quoted as saying my personal beliefs do not allow me to permit the execution of an individual in the name of the state for me to simply walk away now we'll make me as much an accomplice as others who would participate in the execution. He did this just weeks before his hand off of the governorship to Gary Carruthers. And this would lead to one of the worst prison breaks in Mexico, so he's commuting the death sentences of these inmates before he leaves because he has moral objections to the death penalty, which makes sense. But that particular, those commute that commuting of those senses. What's potentially leading up to this prison?.

"But it's possible that because those other people were you know they were wasps basically or it was easier to point the finger and blame this Jewish couple for this this subversion. Sure and of course. It's completely aren't coming from Roy Cohen. Who himself was also Jewish but for some reason he had laser focus on this couple and making his name was very important to him making his name known and pushing the agenda of Joseph McCarthy so after the execution of the rosenbergs there were still always this general distrust of anybody who affiliated with concepts of communism or or Russia up to Ronald Reagan really well known for not trusting Russians. I think the Cold War carried on into our childhoods and I remember some of it I remember all of it but I remember some of the aggression towards Russia towards some of these other countries. That was still going not that it was undeserved absolutely. I mean they definitely were were fucked up. Yes yes so. Ultimately a lot of people wondered if Oppenheimer had any experience himself in the trading or sharing of secrets. I think a light of debt was also cast on him again because he was a Jewish scientist and again going back to the anti-semite Semitic nature that was common in the US but time period. Yeah absolutely at the time. People definitely have their doubts wasn't intelligence disclosure from US resources and you documents from the USSR that we learned Oppenheimer also had a cone codename delegated by the US are his codename Westchester. But it's been it was clearly confirmed by the. Ussr documents that he himself did not participate in sharing information even though he had been actively recruited and even his own mistress was a car. Technically a card carrying member of the Communist Party. He himself never that we know so far. Never shared any nuclear secrets with Russia. It does seem that the whole McCarthyism and all of that really did succeed in squashing. The Communist Party in the United States right the level of influence and and notoriety that they had in the forties and the thirties is not basically non-existent wrangling. So that's that's an interesting thing to think about yes. They got what they wanted. I guess I mean McCarthy era I guess you can argue with Success Woolen. What their motivation. Wise again whatever. People's political leanings. Are I history history But you know it is interesting that there was this complete annihilation potentially of an idea a political idea and granted there were these perversions. With trying to steal secrets. But I don't doubt that the United States was also participating in espionage efforts throughout at the world. Exactly what a communist would say Yup card carrying member? I do like the name Ethyl I do and I. I saw photos of them. You know I I feel bad for kids. I think that they had a really rough go because they were put into essentially foster care and then adopted navy and change their names to be their adoptive parents and I think that was probably because they were being attacked are followed the New Jersey school system. It's crazy yeah. Their their sons are still alive. I don't know that they still give interviews. But they from what I've read. They still like Eric said they still believe that. Their MOM's participation was minimal at best. Yeah it's a really sad story. It is time and a horrible story. I mean just the entire thing is crazy and the fact that there's so many ties to New Mexico. It just blows my mind a little bit because I was not even aware of that so i WanNa thank you for teaching me something. You're welcome and what we talked about earlier was it's the. Us obviously beat Russia in terms of developing the weapon. Although the information that is inevitably given to Russia did expedite their process. It saves them about three or four years I think in developing their own yeah Which leads you bunch of other things down the arms race and all that fun stuff not fun not fun but still interesting to highlight the role that New Mexico played during World War Two during the development of weapons.

"I would be into that. It's really beautiful. People have weddings. There will like you said it's on High Street. The Victorian style probably two story house. Yep Exactly Yep so. They have the same exact room where Ruth Greenglass and David Greenglass Staden when he was shuttling the nuclear secrets to his wife to eventually pass on to his brother-in-law Julius Rosenberg So greenglass later became known as code-named Bumblebee. So if I go back to make what are these things have in common trump whitesands bumblebee? Now you're getting more the picture. So he's Bumblebee. He is Bumblebee. So it was transformers. He was the transformer all the time it was a car wasn't even human so Rosenberg. Not None of this happened by accident. Rosenberg was an active member of the Soviet. Union's like support group was a Communist Party member. And he's an American though. Yeah in Manhattan right so Julius Rosenberg. David Greenglass brother-in-law was an active member of the Soviet Union spy ring and his handler slash mentor at the time encouraged him to recruit his brother-in-law. David Greenglass Greenglass was an active soldier in the US Army but he and his wife Ruth had also previously joined the Youth Communist League prior to this happening so all of them had interconnected relationships with the Communist Party in the Soviet identity and the and the climate at the time was not as like anti-communism as it became after all of this happened but it was starting to build up. I think that like a lot of people in America were against Communism which stood for and They felt that it was anti-american that it was anti freedom and so for people to be like people were part of the Communist Party before this it was just a thing right. It was a thing you just like. I'm a Democrat. I'm a Communist. I'm a Republican. But then after this all kind of fleshes out it starts to become more hostile towards absolutely. Yeah the Communist. The Communist Party in the United States was more affiliated with the working class working unions and labor rights exactly and the spouse ings of like Emma. Goldman who was a huge labor rights activists who pushed for like the eight hour workday and women getting access to birth control sweatshops ending sweatshops. Exactly Yeah So. It was very common actually for people to align themselves politically with what was previously identified as being Liga communistic party. It was at this time this World War Two and later on during the Cold War that we obviously began to develop all this very negative sentiment towards that concept and it. You know to be fair. It wasn't helped by the Russia regime at the time. They were super brutal. It was a dictatorship even though in the guys like a communist buying on CBS. They were spying us. I'm sure we were doing saved. One hundred percent spying on them too so greenglass and David Greenglass already had his connections. Julius Rosenberg was encouraged by his handler. By his connections to really push for David Greenglass to share information that he was getting from Los Alamos so we don't know what that coversation looked like. We don't know if there was any sort of coercion. All we know is that David. Greenglass took information from Los Alamos and shared it with his wife and his brother-in-law Julius Greenglass Aka Bumblebee continued to share information with Julius and Julius is code named Jesse now was code named antenna. So the Soviet spy network didn't just end with those two. They didn't want just want to hedge their bets. There they also targeted a well-known scientist him. Klaus Fuchs like we talked about and his code name was Charles in his counterpart. A R. L Z yes. Yeah sorry no it's okay. That was weird. Yeah maybe that's like the Russian version I duNno and his counterpart to transfer information. Was Ted Hall code-named Millard Millard? Millard Miller is that like a bird that's Mallard L. Malehda Dwight so. I watched a couple of documentaries about this. Whole thing and hall was allegedly a genius like he was Super Smart Scientific mind he was young and there was one scientists that work with him on this project and he said that he could do things like ninety percent faster than everybody else because he was just so smart now so hall and Fuchs. Focus was primarily on the use of uranium specifically. You two three five power their dispatches for that research didn't get didn't end up reaching Moscow until much later on so we don't really know that their spy efforts had a huge impact because for some reason their information didn't get to Moscow in timely fashion also Ted Hall was working with his former roommate another career for the Soviet Union and his name was Saville. Sax and Sax would also shuttle secrets so they would also have clandestine meetings at UNM campus really. Yeah in in this book that I found a spice guy to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. They have photos of like specific locations at UNM that they met at location specific to Santa Fe that the spies would meet out to share information. So it's really cool so everytime driving around campus. I always remember like Oh my God these people here like these people were here physically standing here sharing nuclear secrets. It's so crazy that's insane. And also like the way that they distributed this information back to Russia was pretty crazy like I. I saw this whole thing about the Telegraph and the telegram So they would just send these wire cables through Western Union back. Then it wasn't just money money union me some money on Western Union area. No but they they actually would send these secrets through a coded message and the code itself was so complicated like I got really confused watching and learning about how they did the code but they said that even today with supercomputers the way they are. They're still basically unbreakable as you have the key and so there was one guy in particular who was working in Los Alamos to decode all of these cables and figured it out. How so he actually learned all of these code names. He knew he's one of the discovered Charles and Bumblebee and all these other things. He's a very smart guy who's like multi-lingual that's the only reason. He was able to decode this. How he knew Russian he knew English these other languages and he figured out the code cracked the code and was able to determine that we were actually losing all of these secrets. All of these top secret things that were going on with this project. We're just going right to Russia. Wow it was amazing I will show. Is THAT SMART. It'd be a spy but I would just rub it in people's faces fund Los Alamos actually has the highest percentage of a master's level educated people in the state rousted. But what do you got? You're welcome have you like them? Apples the real smart Boston. I Dunno actress because I might he? I don't know I was thinking of goodwill hunting mark. Wahlberg again no Matt Damon. I think more complex in goodwill I know you said Boston. Oh yeah but it. Doesn't it takes place in Boston? Harbor Hav Greenglass was eventually apprehended in one thousand nine hundred fifty when his transgressions were discovered World War Two was over but the US was entering a phase a new war and that was a Cold War with Russia. So we also know this as the red scare so Russia was enemy numero uno number one. Sorry Putin Yup Sills Green glass quickly. Dimed out Julius and his sister Ethel in order to secure protection for he and his wife. We wanted you to say dimed out. What is that route it out? You're getting mad because I'm using this expression. Dimed out. I use the phrase dimed out in always read it out to be only one. You're saying it's not a New Mexico. That's fine I've always said dimed out. Yeah he sold them out. He sold amount out. He dimed him out. He sold them out. Hopefully your listeners will support me in the use of the expression timed out. They won't support so obviously in order to protect himself and his wife led to the fall of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg he basically just bitched out. I mean he totally threw them under the bus. It's really unclear if he ever regretted this. Like you can find some old photos of. When he's leaving the court after testifying against his sister and his brother-in-law he doesn't look distraught or upset. I think he ended up living under an assumed name and died later on. I think one researcher found out where he lived and made contact with him but he didn't share any sort of reflection on any sort of sense of guilt or or anything so it's I think it would be complicated to unravel what that dynamic looks like especially when it came to who bore the majority of the responsibility where was everybody equal partners or what but who board the majority of the consequences right. That's the real quick. Yeah so yeah so going into that point. Let's talk about. Ethel and Julius is prosecution. So Roy Cohen became a lead prosecutor of the Rosenberg trial. They were eventually executed in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. After being found guilty of espionage. They died by electric chair. Okay sadly they left behind two young children and also. There's a lot of like I think that your point here and my point is that there are a lot of other people involved. They did not suffer even close to that level of consequence and the level of involvement. I think is questionable especially on. Ethel's part that her son is really advocating for justice for her claiming that she was wrongfully accused. I know that she was Communist Party. American which was the thing back then. But there's a lot of questions about how involved she was directly as opposed to her brother's wife Right. Who was ruth? Greenglass was very involved and admittedly so and not just that but like hall and Fuchs and all these other people. They didn't get electrocuted right now. That's a really good point for some reason. Cohen have is is laser pointed towards Ethel and Julius. He's GonNa make an example out of them again. If you get a chance to check out angels in America there's Roy Cohen's character is played by Elba Chino Rosenberg's played by Meryl Streep and he's kind of suffering is a national treasure and her spirit comes to talk to him. It's really profound. It's really good acting Just a little bit of a segue if you get a chance to check it out. So Roy Cohen was infamous in his own right. So he was really infamous for his role. During the McCarthy era the Red Scare Court theism McCarthyism. There were hearings after hearings. Were people were being targeted at accused of being communist specifically in Hollywood actors actresses probably what you would call like more liberal minded. Today were being blacklisted and labeled as Communist. Once you're blacklisted. That basically meant you could never work again. You're labelled as a communist sympathizer an active member of the party in. You didn't deserve to work again. And the big big people. Spearing that efforts were Roy. Cohn and Senator McCarthy from Wisconsin Wisconsin or at home was from New York. It's also suspected that Roy. Cohn was a closeted homosexual. He later went on to advise. Donald Trump. Our current President Rupert Murdoch the Right Fox News and he was also known as a fixer among the political realms. He was also known to be incredibly highly unethical lear on his life he being disbarred and he later succumbed to complications associated with AIDS whoever he did his best to hide this illness. And so again. If you have a chance to check out those in America please check it out. It really diced X. More of that dichotomy that he posed where he probably was a gay man but his outward presentation the way he treated other people was really horrific and the epitome of hypocrisy Ethel. Julius Rosenberg felt the brunt of whatever aggression he for. Some reason held against people who identified as communists and. That's not to say that they were innocent. Because I that definitely. Julius was involved in this whole scandal of recruiting his brother-in-law and connecting the dots for some of these people that were working at the Manhattan project. He definitely was not innocent. But it just for me. The contrast of the level of punishment that they receive versus the people who were key and instrumental impressing some of these secrets. Really Getting Away Scot Free and there was one documentary. I watch where they interviewed. Hall's wife and she still. She was still alive back now. No she is now but she said that he had a moment where he felt so guilty about what was happening to the Rosenbergs that he was determined to go turn himself in and like confessed to everything that he had done and she convinced him not to allow but he wanted to save at the most. He wanted to save Ethel's life because he felt like she was being treated unfairly and there was a huge backlash before all the McCarthyism and everything started to really take shape and grip the nation. There was a big backlash of public sentiment. That felt like Ethel should not have been executed and they were protesting in the streets. And all these things were happening to stop that from occurring and and they're even several petitions to the president himself at the time to turn back the execution order and he refused to do it. So it's just I think it's interesting. I am not saying that they were innocent because I don't think that they were but I do think that they were used as scapegoats. Yeah we buy Cohen and some of these other people to send a message that this wouldn't be tolerated anymore right. I think you're absolutely right. And there was also a lot of anti-semitism associated with scapegoating the rosenbergs. Like Eric said their level of culpability was probably less than other people..

"Trey BURKE COOKIES. I even got real cookies burnt them. Yeah Prince Club pictures of that. I don't actually. I'm so annoyed. I went to a party and everything but nobody took a picture of news so road. Do you know me the famous my own mind. I'm a guest on a podcast a couple times animals. I'm basically co host Mark Wahlberg. Yeah I know him no relation Berg so The rap replica towns and family homes they were completely obliterated obviously during the test bombings and upon reflecting when he was observing those tasks he years later he reflected on what he was feeling what he observed other scientists and their behavior after dropping this bomb at white sands. And if you get a chance to find the the youtube videos of Oppenheimer in this reflection it's really it's really intense. Like he kind of looks like is GonNa Cry. He looks really really skinny and kind of just like a sad person. Maybe that's just my interpretation of it but he just looked like a downtrodden much older gentleman who maybe like juggling. These roles that he played that interacted are history. Seems like a heavy burden to carry. Yeah no kidding so they. I tested the weapon on July sixteenth. Nineteen forty five and Oppenheimer later share that some scientists were laughing. Some were crying laughing. Yeah laughing I don't know. He doesn't further expand whether or not it's like this historic hysterical giddy laughter or is it like an uncomfortable after the ocean. We did this. What are we GONNA do? I didn't know that the the what are they called the candy. The minton the coke was gonNA explode until I just thought it would. We should try it at node actually. And if you watch the footage of what that looked like it was I mean if you can imagine being somebody in the fifties though had been insane sight to see that go off. Yeah like a science kind of technically assigned explosion in the League is later on. I think they did later on like actually test on like live. Animals like cows and sheep and stuff like that and the skin's being stripped off so understandably leave their reactions. Were mixed so like you said Oppenheimer said some people were crying. Some people were laughing. Some people were totally silent for him. This is how he identified how he felt. He said I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the Baga Vodka Gita Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty which is to be in war. Okay 'cause he was like I just want to clarify the heart of it because he doesn't talk about it in this quote but the prince did not WANNA fight. He didn't want to kill anybody. And Vishnu is trying to convince him that. It is his duty to do that. Go ahead sorry no good. Thank you so vicious. Trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty and to impress him. He takes out his multi armed form and says now I am become death the destroyer of worlds. So I think Oppenheimer genuinely recognized that what he had participated the creation that he had participated in was going to have such a huge impact on the the world's future and that largely that impact was going to mean death. Lots of Beth. Yeah I mean to almost two hundred twenty five thousand dead in Japan alone. It's just I can't imagine what he must have felt. I think it's similar to what the creator of dynamite fell. You know like you create this thing. And it's so destructive right you know. I definitely believe that oppenheimer was torn about about this. Chretien the atomic weapon. I think he recognized that. There was a potential obliteration. Being weighed against the ongoing atrocities being waged by the German and Japanese regimes. So here he is a Jewish man recognizing that other Jews were being slaughtered. In Germany that Japan was an ally of Germany. Japan had waged war on us with Pearl Harbor and he was hoping to create a weapon that was potentially going to deny late. All those potential enemies definitely sent a message right. There was no doubt in the world's mind at that point that we were not fucking around right but I guess my question for you. I may be jumping the gun here on on what you WanNa talk about. But why did New Mexico get involved in all of this jury? Cover that no not yet. But thank you for bringing. That is a good segue so rewinding back to the creation of these weapons. We wanted tether back to New Mexico and there was a reason why New Mexico selected to develop the Manhattan project and that was again back to Oppenheimer Oppenheimer who was originally from New York but he became familiar with New Mexico because he traveled here in his early teens. early twenties to be treated for illness in he'd completely fell in love with the mountains. He fell in the desert landscape. What you guys. I just really WANNA fuck this shit. I don't know that he said that But I definitely know the heat like that. It was a very isolated territory like it was theraworx for still. Aren't that many people around here. Same thing that makes it. Great for colts also makes a great for atomic bomb so in nineteen forty one even before the US entered the war President Roosevelt pushed for the US to develop an atomic weapon. So Lieutenant Leslie Groves happened to be a colleague of Oppenheimer and so they were both tasked with finding a location to work on this project and Oppenheimer immediately said. Let's go check out New Mexico so they ended up checking out Los Alamos specifically an area called the Los Alamos ranch school so there was already some pre existing buildings that they could build off of pre existing infrastructure. Like water and stuff like that so it was. It had all everything that they were looking for and he was also incredibly isolated difficult to find difficult to get to which would help support the secretive nature of their work so they really thought this is the place where we can work on this war ending weapon at the same time though. Stolen was completely aware stall in being the leader of Russia at the time was completely aware that the US was going to work on developing an atomic weapon and he already had designated multiple sympathizers with Russia or active buys within Russia to get information from the US efforts to develop the atomic weapon. So just as soon as you started its efforts identifying Los Alamos doing all these things. Russia was right behind us. And saying we're going to get the goods and we're going to be able to beat them to this. Nuclear weapons is like the precursor to the Cold War. Right exactly okay. So we're no I know a couple of things right and and if you think about the. Us is in this weird. By the time we enter the war. We're in a weird relationship with Russia where we're technically working together. They are working to push back the Nazi forces and we have landed in Europe to also push back the Nazi for because there are also developing this whole Communist. Right there were. There were already identified as a communist regime which whatever listeners feel has its own sentiments and we don't want to get down that rabbit hole about causing communism gay but that's exactly what a call no answer so. Los Alamos saw the arrival of a low level engineer named David Greenglass and he came around the same time that vary trusted. Kgb spy and a very renowned scientists name Klaus. Fuchs was also ripened Los Alamos. What a few Fuchs Spelled F. U. C. H. S. Did you ever middle school like right or like high school? Faq like fuck you now. I never did that are used to do. I was too busy doing that. Ask Gang Symbol. So maybe he was the one that wanted to few shit up CA. I think they all wanted a few. But Fuchs was definitely more high level he was an actual physicist whereas greenglass was a little bit low level. I wouldn't say unsophisticated machinist and he was very skilled at that. He was really good at making things. Yeah and but he wasn't necessarily know scientists right. He wasn't like this. You know brain power behind the razor writing the equations for fusion making the components for the devices so few China arrived in Los Alamos but also at the same time when we say like the KGB. I'm using that as like a colloquial term. It wasn't technically the KGB at the time the KGB came later on in the fifties technically at the time it was the key that was Kinda like their speed network. I mean I think KGB is used. Colloquial amount to other gives an all expansive term for? Yeah actually Putin used to be a member of the KGB. And that's why they say he's so good at like manipulating world leaders into doing he has all these skills that he learned from the KGB. Come the first person to throw you under the bus every time everytime I'll take you down with me so technically it was the cave but you know going back but hold on hold on I wanna I just WanNa take a minute. Yes One Minute. I feel like my listeners. Really need to understand that that you have a crush on Vladimir Putin. I no longer have a crush. Because he's an awful person he is just a really bad guy. Could use to have a crash there. I just found him attractive. It's something about like that small man big ego thing. I don't know I mean you would assume I have a crush on Tom Cruise but I don't. It's something about like being a I mean I don't know I can't explain it. There's no way to explain or justify my attraction to Vladimir Putin granted. This was before his horrific facelift. Yes so to my credit. This was before you completely butchered his face but but also was still buttering people civil sales. Yes okay is a better face back to the story. I mean He. He Rides on bears. He hunts shirt lives. You're going to get so much flack from your listeners. Who were like? Putin's awful know he's off. I know he's like seven hundred letters of people like Oh my God I feel the same way. It finally saved us in safe places love and again. It's not I don't love him as a person I just. There's something attractive about him. I felt that at the time no longer do that by now. I'm all about Captain America. Chris Evans my new stick right now. Okay okay now. Being see now you've got to be distracted about my pinterest. Became my mentor. Looking at images of Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. Why don't you like? Did you ever get together so the KGB again cloaked term? They were. They knew that they didn't want to hedge their bets. On one person they were being smart about things so they're basically showering Los Alamos with as many intercepts that they could come up with. It could bring information back to Russia and help. Russia's efforts to develop the A-BOMB or develop nuclear weaponry before the US gets it first right so greenglass in nineteen forty four. He was living in Los Alamos and his wife. Ruth had actually settled in a boardinghouse in Albuquerque again in nineteen forty four and he would come from Los Alamos to go and visit her two hours. Yeah and so they were staying. She was staying in this boarding house. Not just because they were working on this spy plan but because they they did love each other and they wanted to try to be as close to each other as possible so she was staying at a boarding house and she was serving as the Messenger so greenglass would come bring the information and then ruth would pass it on to Julius Rosenberg now. Julius WAS MARRIED TO DAVID SISTER. Ethel Ethel Rosenberg. David's wife. Ruth was staying at the boardinghouse in Albuquerque and the boarding house. If you look at it. It's still here in Albuquerque. It's known as the spy house. It's a bed and breakfast. You can actually go and stay there. Which ago took it out..

"Lydia. Hey Eric Welcome back thank you. I'm glad to have you. I know that you've been excited about this particular story and I honestly I wasn't excited about in the beginning when you brought it up because I didn't understand But as I started to do my own research not that it's as extensive as your research but I did my own. I started to become more interested in this case and also I learned some things which kind of pissed off at you about because I hate learning things sir. Yeah you're such an American but history has never really been something that I've been into. I guess maybe you're more into history than you realize. I guess I guess my show would be proof that I am history but for some reason I cold war. I hear all this stuff and I'm just like a boring. Don't care but honestly I did learn some things I do feel like maybe I might be more in the history than I thought you said so. So I know you wanNA talk about spies in New Mexico. Yup spies secrets and lies. And we're talking about a particular set of spies not not like. We did with the colts where we had two different things. We're GONNA talk about one particular thing right right during one particular part of US history and New Mexico New Mexico history So let me ask. Okay what do these three things have in common? Trumka Whitesands Bumblebee. I'll tell you transformers. The answer is the hint being our segment spy. I'm excited to see how that all connects a thread through the story and weaving thread in some magical blanket. Is it a Cova blanket? No it's not a covert blanket. Thank God yes. We don't want that. That's better Noda Cove Ed say No. Just say no social distance everybody. Let's break down those connections. Okay of those words. Random RANDOM WORDS RANDOM words right trump white sands and bumblebee. So the overarching connection is spies. New Mexico is home to a bunch of government agencies. Like what are we have? We have the Department of Energy. Here we have a bunch of Research Laboratories. We've got some homeland defense stuff going on here. Yeah with the Research Laboratories Missile testing in parts of the State. Even close to where we grew up right so on the other side so we grew up in Sapporo which is a small teeny tiny teeny tiny little town which translates to help. Help me get me out of here. Your explanation point But behind the famous M mountain in Socorro. They do lots of missile testing. And I don't know if you had this experience growing up there but when I grew up there my house would frequently shake from the sonic booms. Yeah some of the missiles and some of the jets flying overhead and it would get really loud. Oh totally yeah. Yeah in the same people that work on those explosions by a mountain also handle our July Fourth Fireworks. This is really pretty legit display. Yeah I coro yeah I think it's a pretty legit display. Looks like actual bombmakers making fireworks. We went down there last July. Because it's around the same time as my eldest daughter's birthday so we tell her like this is all for you know minus happy birds. But I haven't been there in such a long time and I still see like a total legit firework display. No it is. And where else can you get hurricane? Junior not from New Mexico Google Google L. Hurricane Senior and then Google Al Hurricane Junior and then also fireworks. Yes I'm hot dogs and hamburgers and all that other and actually really nice grassy knoll to avoid the fireworks. The golf courses very lovely on. Yeah it's really pretty anyway. Nobody cares about that. Yes you want people to check it out. Because it's a hidden gem of New Mexico. Get so flustered. I'm so passionate about the fireworks and the Green Chili Cheese fries at El Camino. Oh my God you guys. If you ever go to Sikora you'll have to go to El Camino the best new Mexican food ever and if it's later in the evening asks to be set in the El Matador lounge a lounge. You can have a beer. You can have a beer. Natural Cheese fries. And the booths are like super old from the seventies and the sixties and it really lost in time. It's totally. It's like a total pausing time. It's really the only thing the only complaint I have about the ALCHEMY. No we're really going down a weird round hole. Here is the fact that they put fucking olives on everything love but I love a okay okay. We're not Italian and we're not Greek. So holidays are okay in my book like this is like a Spanish right. Oh Yeah I never thought about that action to whole new then test. Just get out of my car bit and go forward magic lamb for you miss up. Those aren't the words so we're not doing karaoke audience. Let's get back on track. You're distracting US stopping so selfish and let us focus on what we need to tell you about. Spies in New Mexico Gut. It's all about you dare you okay so new. Mexico is home to lots of government agencies. Eric I think you've actually looked up. How many people are actually employed by the state or the government yes sixteen percent of new Mexicans are employed by the public sector? It's a huge amount of people. It is considering how few people who live here. It's like three hundred thousand people so that's your lot so there's a reason why so. Many people I think are clustered around New Mexico or agencies. I should say that kind of goes back to World War Two so even before the. Us got involved in the world. War a gentleman. By the name of Oppenheimer was tasked at developing nuclear weapons and he had been familiar with New Mexico which will talk about a little bit in. He was tasked with developing an atomic weapon. That would hopefully end the war so when we say atomic weapons that's kind of a broad term basically. We're talking about an a-bomb so the a-bomb was used to drop on Hiroshima and Nagasaki Generation. One right nuclear weapons right. Yeah I'm saying right and yeah like I totally know about nuclear weapons. Science man's played it to me actually entails but just space on the seat that we're sharing what it's called is so the people will kind of responsible of navigating where America was going to go with World War Two. They had a choice whether to look at Atlanta invasion of allied countries so allied countries being like Japan or look at a firebombing campaign so basically flying over and dropping arsenal so obviously they decided to lean towards typically firebombing. So essentially what happened is they dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in nineteen forty five and that essentially devastated sixty seven Japanese cities resulting in approximately two hundred and twenty five thousand deaths. Devastating completely devastating. I mean whether you're not you're like Oh yeah America. If would've I still think that's such a huge death toll like so. Many civilians were literally burned alive when they dropped the weapon and then whoever was left probably suffered a horrible long battle cancer yet. The bombs were respectively named fat man. And Little Boy. That sounds innocuous. Yeah I don't know why they came up with those names. I'm sure there's A. There's a reason why those names were selected. They probably meant something so going. Back to how these weapons came to be. We have to go back to what was known as the Manhattan Project and the Manhattan project was primarily housed and developed and nurtured in Los Alamos New Mexico so for those of my listeners that are not from New Mexico. Let me just take a couple of minutes and talk about Los Alamos? So Alamos is Right now a small city I think maybe a few thousand people live. There is right between Espanola and Santa Fe New Mexico and so it's in the north. I was in north central part of the state Very beautiful area Los Alamos itself actually sits on top of a missa which is a flat hill type structure and you can just see this beautiful canyon to the West and then if you go east there's a beautiful nature preserve called device Kavita which is an old Volcano that is inactive gorgeous area. Lots of wildlife beautiful vegetation. Have you ever been there? I believe I have driven through there. I don't believe I've ever stopped. It's like but I do remember it being like very forested and beautiful it is. Yeah so Los. Alamos itself is also very pretty giant pine trees but that's the setting of where the development of the atomic bomb happened. And I think if I'M NOT WRONG. Correct me if I'm wrong that back then in the forties it was top secret bowel. Yeah totally so. You weren't even really hard to get to and that's why you know is probably selected right because it is remote and it is on top of the hill so they could easily block off that entire area from you know access from people right and. I think they did that and pretty sure there is one way in one way out. You know. They're still. There was a gated area. Where people at check in as they came in and check out as they left and even now it's still heavily involved in the development of top secret technology and yet top secret things related to military how we have that. And we also have Sandia national labs here in Albuquerque which is very similar to that but I just wanted to give kind of a rundown Los Alamos is because not many people. Maybe don't know about it. Yeah it's a small town. It's a very small town. So as IRC point now it's still relevant in today's government agencies and government research is the highest income per capita in New Mexico. That that town. Yeah there's a bunch of scientists who making bank. They're not us not no he tried and they said no to go away. Who are you do? You have a degree in and we said laughter. You're not my mom never will be all right. We'll get back to the story back to this story of the bomb cheesy nineteen nineties version dropping own so prior to obviously the final execution of this weapon there had to be testing phase and that testing also occurred here. New Mexico and that was done at the White Sands and what are these things have in common white sands missile range? It's also now known as a White Sands National Park and the site is marked now formerly as the Trinity Test Site. Okay so first of all if you're not from new. Mexico whitesands is amazing gorgeous beautiful. So it's all of these really bright white sand dunes in the middle of like these giant mountains and there's yuccas growing everywhere and cactuses and it's just so pretty there. It's really weird to think about the fact that was like the sight of some nuclear testing. And also it's not very far from where we grew up. No that's true and I'm pretty sure boys to mention a video there so doesn't go down a Midi Boswell. Somebody shot a very well known music video wiped. And it's absolutely gorgeous. I believe it's gypsum. Rock that gypsum. Yeah that's kind of a very fine sand in. It's actually illegal to take the sad. You need to get permission to transport any of Sun and Eric set just stark blue skies and a couple yuccas spattered here. And they're absolutely gorgeous so if anybody's looking for a road trip to New Mexico checkout whitesands. It's worth it. Yeah it's totally worth it especially at night with the moon you can. Even you get permission to camp there. Caution don't go in July waste yes. Family actually will die from Germany. You will die. Yeah you'll die. Don't go hiking there. I mean. Just imagine what it's like when you're like in the snow in the Sun is beating down like br blinding your face. It's the same thing but it's also hot. Yeah so. Prior to the dropping of the bombs they went through testing phase they selected whitesands detest it. It's now known as the Trinity Site and White Fans actually just gained it's National Park status. I believe that just happened like a couple years. Yeah so what they did. Was they built replica? Towns and family homes didn't have like dolls and mannequins. Yeah that was actually a couple. Years back maybe. Like ten. Years ago. Actually dressed as a mannequin mannequin from the site. So like I was wearing like nineteen fifties like you know cute housewife outfit and there was carrying a tray of burnt cookies and they had like melted. Skin all over me yeah. That was my costume. You're really morbid. I thought it was clever. This club yes. This is a matter of like a vision. In my head of this mannequin man with a fedora a sue and like the the house making wife wearing an apron and like poofy scourge basically what I was wearing and carrying Rondo..

"Yes there's a lot there's a lot of love. Gosh Yeah Too. And like you brought me one of these back I WanNa it was something like the summer peach. Yeah I I think that timeline checks out and they also. That was probably late in their strawberry season. So they have. Strawberry Rhubarb is a popular option for them and then later like in like fall. They have Perr Ginger fritters like all of it. I'm on all of it right like right now. I literally just go. You know what we're going to have to find a way to get back to New Mexico in the next couple. I missed that and reminiscing about. It is not helping when we're not there. No it's not helpful at all and then and other place that I loved was Santa has a great. They have a very robust coffee shop scene. They do much to my delight. They have plenty of those. My favorite was this place called sky coffee and it's in the railyard area of which seems to be a very kind of up and coming in like industrial area hip but like that's where like the Rei was and area. You're obsessed with because you're getting those town mountain bars from. Yeah and only I can only get them in areas. So that's what brought me to that. Area was to stock up on energy bars and then I was like Oh. Here's a coffee shop. That looks really cute. So hot in there and it did not disappoint. It's really sunny bright. It looks like kind of a white cottage definitely place that I would just chill out working main computer for a little while which is exactly what I did and they have like wonderful espresso and Cortott does Chai per over coffee. They've come on tap and then they have lots of coffee cake and muffins and they also supply a limited selection of. Who's doughnuts so in case you can't make debate. They were ownership. Yeah and last but not least has probably one of the better views was that rooftop Cantina For Margarita's yes. I was like are fun. Awesome like bar hopping night in downtown Santa Fe and this is the grid casual option. It's very chill lively vibe. Still kind of silence in artsy but like much more laid back I would say and spacious rooftop we were able to like Mosey right up to the edge. Pretty much and just have like a couple of margaritas probably like guacamole chips. Solid foods solid Margaritas. Like nothing too crazy. Fancy it's about the views but then they do have that like Fancy restaurant inside though they do. Yeah which is just right through the doors and I remember just like sitting sitting there chilling. The Sun was setting and it was the most idyllic experience and a great way to cap off just a wonderful dream evening in Santa Fe. Yeah and I cannot get enough of Santa Fe or Albuquerque or New Mexico like all of this from blue corn donuts to like blue corn lagers at bow and Arrow and Green Chili Pizza. Grizzly Turkey sandwiches. I love it all such a wonderful and you know what's crazy. This is just a taste of New Mexico.

And he's going to talk to us today about the pleasures of retiring in living in New Mexico and this will be a regular program every month. The difference is it will be living in a different part of the country to enjoy life and retirement someplace else other than where you you live. So Welcome to show Hal. I'm so glad you could join me today. Thank you Debbie. It's wonderful to be with you and I hope the weather is wonderful. Will there in New Mexico today. It's it's just cleared up. It's nice and sunny. Oh that's great. Well tell me I know you've been in New Mexico so for a while now and tell me and the listeners. What do you like best about living in Santa Fe in particular but New Mexico in general There's so many things I like about it but I think most of all like the community. Santa Fe is a small city. I think the population is about eighty three thousand a great number of interesting people here and I find it very friendly with many opportunities to connect with people bull but I I made by When when I made my first visit to Santa Fe nineteen ninety two? I think it was like it was twenty nine. I was just completely taken in mesmerized with with Santa Fe and asked myself why we law to to come to this unique place and after several months several visits here. I told myself you know one day I'm GonNa live here and low behold behold here. I am and myself every day that I live here. Isn't that that dream came true. Well it's a wonderful city. Yeah I was so pleased to visit their few months ago and I just fell in love and I knew like you I knew I would love Santa Fe and it's just a terming town on and so much to do and I like the walkability of it too but Tell listeners what you like. Best about living in New Mexico itself. You know I have to say it's the it's the climate It's a dry climate here. I've always lived in fairly humid Environments but I think it's definitely the climate and the there's a natural light here that is very a nourishing I think I can relate to Giorgio Keith who came here from New York on her very first visit I think she's quoted as saying that would she came to Santa Fe or skews me. When she came to New Mexico she found her soul? And that's why she ended up relocating here because that that natural light here hello we've lost him. Oh which yeah I guess I should call it a low okay. You're back what happened to you. Don't know this is creepy okay. It's that old white eight New Mexico blue start again at the. What do you like best about living in New Mexico central and so just? I'll ask the question again encounters down joe three to one though. How what do you like best about living in New Mexico itself the state you know w I would have to say it's it's the climate the climate and the natural light here? It's a dry climate and having lived in humid parts of the country. Most of my life I really prefer drier climate. The light itself is the the only way can really describe it as this natural light that we have here is is what I would say nourishing it just really really enhances your mood and or hands his mind every day if if we have a sunny day which we do over three hundred days as year I always think about Giorgio Kief and her quote that on her very first visit to New Mexico I believe it was in the Nineteen Thirties When she came here from New York that she says she found her soul and I think I think that that the natural life that we have here allowed her to as an artist to flourish and of course the rest is history? We all know her her fantastic work We have a museum here that that that dedicated to her as well as Many other places around the state and also I think it's the wide open spaces here. I think that lends itself to kind of open opening creative. Mind interesting. Okay that's yeah. I enjoyed the Georgia Keith. Museum Liam and I want to get back there to go to town and see her a place there that she has and It it's just such a different low flow area from what I'm used to. I really enjoyed it What about the weather though? I mean how. Many days of Sun is get as hot as Arizona with one hundred nineteen degrees agrees. Or what are the average. No no no no. We're kind of more of a mountain and state I in Santa Fe in particular. Seven thousand has a feet above sea level so We never get scorching. Hot like you do in Phoenix We do have over three hundred. Today's of of Sun here which I love. And that's just one of the draws for me we do have four distinct seasons and of course we do have a winter a real winter and we often do get snow as I mentioned where seven thousand feet above sea level. Aw and well we do have a ski area about twenty minutes from here which is ten thousand feet above sea level. So there is I think this year we're getting upwards two hundred and forty inches up in the mountains and the ski area so we have a theory very active ski season. This year. Last year wasn't wasn't we didn't have much snow so we didn't have such a great year for skiers but this this year has just gone gangbusters for the skiers And they're all they're all in town. Well what about. How hot heart does it get wind as it? What months or is it? One month two months of heat or what will oddly. Surprisingly for a lot of people. June is our hottest month. We do get into the nineties most of June throughout the day but the nights get really nice and cool pleasant. There are a lot of people here the live here. It's still don't have air conditioning. Because there's there's only maybe six weeks of the year where people feel that they need it. They keep their windows open at night. It cools off the the House that closed up during the day and It's it's quite manageable. August is our can actually be quite pleasant. Whether wise. It's it does cool off a little bit in August and a lot of our days are in the eighties. So August is the the busiest tourist month here one because of the weather and two is because we just have a lot going on like Indian market so we have the great number of visitors Arizona. Texas Florida who come here in August to get out there heat when L. Interesting so so they come as far away as Florida. That's interesting what can you mentioned about the Indian market. That sounds intriguing. All any bark is is huge. Judge I if I remember correctly I think we'd they say that it brings in upward two hundred thousand people we'll Into the Inter our area which of course we don't have dearly the accommodations for that. But people stay in various places like towels or Albuquerque or surrounding areas to to visit the market. But it is quite an event. And it's just a a great display in downtown of the the Indian art and those artists will come from all over over the place to To participate in Outta that interesting various business week of the year. And so it's just one unweakened August yes and various tribes of various Indian tribes participate or is it one or two or no. It's it's it's everyone you can imagine. I couldn't name them all. That's amazing I one thing I enjoyed about the my trip to New Mexico was learning more about the Indians Out Out there and it's it was very interesting as to how they develop the area and what has happened to them since but I believe W. visited the Pueblo didn't you yes yes got got to See one of their ceremonies. Yeah Oh yes. Every time time. I go out to either while New Mexico or Arizona wherever I always like to visit the Indian reservations to learn more about that particular. Take Your tribe and I just find. I've always been fascinated with Indian culture and the Indian lifestyle. And I've always liked to learn about it and it's always fascinating fascinating to me. What goes on at these particular locations and all the rich cultural history that they have so? And how many ask those traditions down from generations. Yes and they keep doing it regardless of what the restrictions are on their lives and their lifestyle so I take. It's a great deal of respect for them but let's let the listeners know what what's cost of living like. There's a pretty good pretty realistic. What's what's it like? Well I think that has Depends on where you come from in terms of relocating I I would say it's considered anywhere from moderate. Probably maybe a bit high for some for some dependent upon part of the country. You're you've come if you come from a high cost urban area. I think you'll find it very reasonable as you're coming from Maybe a smaller town or a state like I Dunno Louisiana or are South Carolina. You might find a bit higher But it's still not unaffordable. It sounds no I would. I would say now. Yeah what about like medical facilities. I always tell people to be sure that they can get to a hospital easily and that the hospital is not endanger of of shutting down. I know a lot of rural areas have Facilities that are closing down just because they can't afford to stay open and I'm sure Santa Fe has enough population to be able to support good hospitals and doctors nance sort of thing so talk to people about that We do we have we used to have just one major medical facility and that was Christmas Saint Vincent. Now we have to Presbyterian you're in healthcare services came in last year built a major facility here. So now people have the option of choosing between the two of those the Presbyterian which of course is brand new is considered state of the art but cynic criticizing. Vincent's has a major ager presence. Here so we're fortunate now that we have both and I think competition is always a good thing particularly healthcare having having good quality Medical care is very important as well. Yes now if you needed something. Highly specialized like heart surgery or something like that. Many of the specialists are found in Albuquerque..

"That they're great out to be a lot of them are flats. The two I oh yeah part of the reason for me wanting to go to more southern New Mexico was I didn't I was leaving snow noticed. Yeah I mean I didn't want. I was leaving the freezing conditions I wanted I wanted to go and travel. I didn't WanNa you know struggle with freeze and sets but and there are times that you still do I mean in it. The weather can change an incident out there. I've dealt with snow freezing rain inches of rain out there which makes roads. It's pretty much impossible. It's Gumbo there can be. It's all depends on where you're at but down there whether can yeah I mean one time I trapped in the Sacramento's we never even left the camp for two days yeah just the rancher said I said when when it rains here you you can't go yeah did that. You just sit there dries out fast when to win. The two days is because it rained leaned again the second year which you know it's like oh good. It's starting to dry up but that when he that one rancher told me that he said you can't go and I'm thinking to myself enough. I'm going to go. I tried to go and retired suspend you put chains on change just the other layer they've among the way that they grade a lot of those roads out there. all the roads are down in you know they just keep running the blade over the top of them so a lot of those roads they're down in so when the water gets in them they can't does do soaks up and I remember trying to go like I was going to. I had to do something we we laid around there for a couple of hours and I said I multiple go check a few trapped and there was this just a little bit of a hill and Gumbo and the way those banks are might truck was just like a pinball from one side the other other trying to climb up the hill yeah bounced off the banks both sides all the way back down to the bottom of the hill then we couldn't get turned around I did I slept in the truck an I angle like that in the past across the Missouri River and trying to climb back up to get out of there and there's still too much rain and it did the same exact thing you're describing just stop there. I sit there and just kinda slow. You're on the track and this is about noontime the next day when we could finally climb up the that year in Sacramento it was me and my buddy fred that year we were trying to pull traps You're going to stay there for three weeks. there was rain and then snow in the forecast. We ended up that happened on day. Fourteen day day seventeen we were finally able to get out and start pulling droughts. We wanted to stay there for twenty one checks whether in the forecast we were just going to lay around so we were trying to get everything pulled on that seventeenth day and there was this pretty steep hill in this corner and it was right in the sun though Fred said boy the only way to know is try but it was like a thirty foot drop can be scary the only way to nose to try it and pretty and I've always been this way if I'm not busy like I'm ready to go home. It doesn't matter where I'm like if I'm not trapping every day I don't WanNa just hang out in a camper. You won't be doing something yeah so I'm GonNa try. We almost else made it to the top of it and the whole front of that truck slid over we had Algeria limbs pignon limbs everything coming through the windows of the truck because they just started to go and there was nothing that I could do. I slammed the truck in reverse and I just matt it it to the floor. Yeah that's what you gotTa do and I still don't know how because we couldn't see anything. We're just ray over the edge and all the brush juniper's. There's everything and somehow the truck came back out up on top of the road. I don't know like I really don't know what happened happens. All of a sudden we can see again. We're at the base of the hill still still facing up the hill yeah but I I don't know you sit there for a while. Uh well then then I ended up walking like half a mile to go get a couple of cats since I've seen guys do that. They're coming coming down a hill and he said if you if you start sliding can you just got it. Yeah you have to the only way to get out of it if you if you hit the brakes and you just oh yeah you don't WanNa hit the brake in stuff. It's for like people in the east. You know I've been in a lot of clay stuff in New York. There's nothing like it. There's honestly nothing like it's a it's crazy to think that you literally don't go anywhere so when you take Neil out there I think that was my third treptow. Neil been after me to go and trying to think we should probably pug that book to my lifestyle is my pay two thousand nineteen yeah I think he sold out now. He is sold out the but yeah it's one hundred eighty pages of Neal's trapping experiences and JP chapter in there that's what a history there yeah. It should be a pretty good read but neil after me to go for quite a while Lyle and my was actually on the second year out there on our way back. my wife got accepted in nursing using school we found out on the way back and that is why she couldn't go the third year and she was pretty wild about it but I remember I called up Neal and all that I said it's time Neil. He said I'll be ready hilarious because he knew exactly exactly what I meant. He always answers the phone the same way. JP Wilson and I said it's time that was that was that I'll be ready but you you sleep in the truck. He I've heard bits and pieces of that no we the year Neil we slept in cinder block building with no installation like one of the coldest years on record ever that part of New Mexico we got out there and the whole the whole ride out and talent. Neil you know it's this was there. Was this one you decide to go up in the higher elevations and get after cats. No this was San hose okay and that was that was a big thing for Neil to is that neal. You'll never caught one hundred coyotes single season. I think he was like ninety six or something like that but we never caught one hundred single season and I said well hopefully we can do that again but so i. I'm telling him the whole way out. It's like playing in the sandbox. You know your bed and just kick your he'll need to take your hand. You just mashed. There's again and again Dan you just you know mashed.

"Georgia Southern eastern Michigan teams that finished their season real strongly. What stands out between these two? Yeah. It's exciting to watch to working class teams in the MAC conference in the sun belt conference try to really put an explanation point on their season Georgia Southern fighting hard for that tenth win. You see that with all of the players saying we're wanna get that tenth win. Same thing on the opposite side of the ball with eastern Michigan wanting to get their eighth win of the season with Georgia Southern offensively. It is Ron Ron Ron it dominates their offense. What do you like about that offensive coordinator, Bob? The bass has come in and installed a hybrid shotgun triple option, it's a it's a really fun option style to watch play. But it is very run. Heavy Georgia Southern leads the sunbelt rushing towards sixty yards per game on eastern Michigan side of the ball. Defensively their weaknesses in the run game giving up one hundred ninety two yards per game. So they're going to rely eastern. Michigan is going to need to rely on their all MAC defensive end. Max Crosby and thirteen all MAC, Jeremiah Harris, Georgia Southern has seven guys that run the ball with regularity. That is going to be fun to keep track. O- for eastern Michigan. We'll be keeping track of the quarterbacks. You talk about them offense to really capable quarterbacks. Did certainly could start at a lot of program. Yeah. They've used to different quarterbacks throughout the season. Tyler Wiegert has been really the start started the majority of the snaps. This year a graduate transfer from the university of Iowa. But at the offense has stalled a little bit under with him under center. Mike glass, a Juku transfer has come in a more mobile type of quarterback and has really been a sparks albeit excited. He's been injured a lot this season. So if he gets in the game, he can be a spark plug that offense to teams that turned around their program. They have made it to the rate com. Media camelia ball, and it's typically a good one. Last four years. The chameleon ball has not been decided by more than five points, all one possession games. And we're looking forward to bringing it to you. All right, gentlemen. Thanks so much in Georgia. Southern the other thing about them is they don't make mistakes or give it away plus twenty two turnover margin this season that's best and the F B S six better than the next closest team. Eagles have committed only five turnovers this season, which would be a new FBI single season record. If they don't commit one in this game. If that is today's Home Depot next gen stat.

"People take their dreams and turn them into businesses that thought is the best for you to grow community will help address all the other issues that that happened in community phone. So it looks like in twenty sixteen you and your Ponant or both unopposed in your primaries, but you got almost almost twice as many votes as did. So can you just talk a little bit about sort of your strategy that was obviously very successful and sort of what you see as your path to victory. Yeah, you know. So I think that in and if you look at the data across New Mexico for the primary, we actually had a very large true a Democrats for the primary all across the state, and it's a little bit hard to know if that was because of enthusiasm and motivation for Democrats to vote at large, the way we've been seeing across the country or whether it was because we had so many contested primaries on the democratic side in the Republicans did not because we had those two, the contested primary for the gubernatorial and for the congressional race. So I think some of that is what drove the the large turnout for the primary. But what else say about our strategy and the way that we've organized our campaign is that this is really truly a grassroots community based campaign. I think I said earlier, I much sociologist by my background. And, and I'm very interested in community organizing and social movements, and how do you really mobilize empower people to get involved in the process? So early on in our campaign starting last year, when I stepped in to run there had already been all this groundwork laid in the community by people who had been doing what I call kitchen table organising over the last couple years, and it was people literally in their home talking to each other saying, you know, we wanna do something. We want to bring some change. We would like to try to get a new Representative for community. And so there had already been a lot of work happening. People doing that kind of organizing in inside their homes and talking to each other. So when we started, we consciously said, let's look at the math and see how we can create a network of community leaders across the entire district and bring in as many. Resources as possible to help train people on community organizing and on the political process so that we could mobilise together. And so starting early in the spring, we actually brought in folks to help teach how to do canvassing how to do community organizing. We started holding regular meetings and really identifying who the community leaders in every neighborhood and how do we pulse avait that leadership and works together to mobilize a movement across our district. So we, we've been very intentional about that from the very beginning and very intentional about this being a community driven grassroots effort. So that continues to this day, we have people Campesina and making calls and organizing house parties and every single neighborhood in the district. And that's how we've been able to reach so many people in. I think. Why? So many people have been really inspired and excited to get involved because there's a space for everybody in space for everybody to use their skills and talent and aspirations in dreams to to be a part of this movement. When if I am lucky enough to serve, it's what I would like to continue into the policy making process because New Mexico, the volunteer citizen legislature. So there's no, you don't get paid as a legislator and there's no paid staff. And so how do you, how do you think the big ideas for actually bring transformational change in some really interested in how do we take this expansive and amazing network of people that have gotten them caged in the process and use their knowledge and wisdom to help develop new policy of new ideas and keep them engaged in the legislative process? You have a ton of endorsements including a hunt just recently Barack Obama. Congratulations. Thank you very exciting..
