It's this very specific cool earthy desert aroma. And there's usually a calm clear breeze which carries these concentrated little pockets of fragrance. The smell comes from the creosote bush. A resilient plant that thrives only in this particularly arid landscape especially after a thunderstorm the bush releases a bunch of these oil compounds into the air stuff found in citrus rosemary pines and it just smells like the earth. Exhales creosote can live for thousands or tens of thousands of years. It's one of the oldest living things on the planet and here.

Robin Givhan on the US Capitol Siege and Vogues Kamala Harris Cover
"To better understand the gravity of the political moment in washington. Dc and how evoke cover became a flashpoint amidst the us political crisis. I spoke to robin kvant. The pulitzer prize winning writer. Who is the senior critic at large writing about politics race and the arts for the washington post and whose own column on the topic was headlined. Vogue got to familiar too fast. I i asked her about the mood. In washington dc. Right now and how it feels. As an american seeing american democracy under threat i start with just A deep sigh. Because i think that for most people. There's just an element of just. There are no words to really express what we're witnessing and you know it's been for a for a significant part of the country. The last four years have been an exhausting emotional emotionally draining time and You know and then add in a pandemic and than to see this. It's just extraordinarily disheartening. And and shocking. And i would also just say i i think there's also an aspect of Sort of sad inevitability Would have seemed like this was predictable and yet we were incapable of south it. Yeah i agree. Everyone kind of you could see this coming with the rhetoric and that president trump has been Spewing out over the last four years using social media as a kind of bullhorn to broadcast this kind of you know hatred and divisive rhetoric. That's from our perspective. Over here in london and i know people other part in other parts of the world you know. We always look to america as his beacon of democracy and to see you know a country that we admire and look up to so much going through this. It's you know we find it. Refined it heartbreaking and really sad as well but you know that point around inevitability. I couldn't agree with you more Later today you know. it's wednesday were recording this It seems as though president trump will be impeached by the house of representatives. What do you think this will signify in this crisis that america's going through right now this political crisis. I think that's a really good question. I i'm not sure You know. I think we've gotten to a point what in at at which every time there's been a sense of okay this is you know the nature like it has to sort of shift at this point shift where the batter And we've kind of been proven wrong so You know an a president who has been. We'll have been impeached twice as a pretty extraordinary thing. But i think we have really clear evidence from last week that there's a certain percentage of the population who will be undeterred and he will be even more exercise and ultimately a it will it has has starting to cease to be about president trump and he has just bad. A you know the the key. That's unlocked this avalanche of darkness. Really because a lot of the the rhetoric that was being spewed out there at the capitol was related to trump fights. You know there were a list of grievances that people had that really had nothing to do with. He was in the white house I think it's bad you know. They've just sort of been given permission to express their grievances in this really violent way. But i do hope that You know i'm wrong and that The vote will will mean something and will mean something that will shift things for the better. I guess some people's perspective could be that this process that congress is going through over the next few days Will be the end of a very dark chapter in. Us history and we have a new administration Starting on january twentieth that seems poised to kind of address some of the critical issues that have surfaced during the current administration's tenure but others are worried. Maybe like you that. Actually this isn't the end of the chapter. It's just opening up and has highlighted that have seventy four million people voted for donald trump. There's at least a portion of those people represented by the groups that showed up at the capital last week. That have been kind of in a way activated by trump. And you know there's you know ten potentially tens of millions of these people depending on which you know opinion. Polls you believe what do you. What do you think of that. I get is the end of a particular chapter. What the next chapter will look like however I is is the question. And i don't think that You know on on january twenty at twelve a one pm you know the sun is magically going to come out and everything's going to be washed away. I think it's going. We're going to have a lot of really difficult difficult work to do. And i think there's going to be a lot of sort of weeding out of some of these pheno terrible elements in our culture and. I don't think that we can really do that until we sort of. Reckon with our history you know for so much of the the rhetoric that's coming from the people who were you know the mob that writing at the capital so much of it to my mind seems to be kind of rooted in american history Of that deals with race and gender issues And what exactly you know freedom and equality need that have never really that we really never really come to terms with and i don't think that we can really move forward productively until we do come to terms of died and you know a lot of people you know the first thing that They will say when people try to go and examine history on and understand what it means for. The president is bat either. Don't wanna go back there. They don't wanna revisit it. They don't want to have that conversation or they simply want to serve you at through these rose colored lenses and sort of glorify it And ignore the the worst

Why Didn't The FBI And DHS Produce A Threat Report Ahead of The Capitol Insurrection?
"Before most major protests are rallies, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. Usually produced a formal intelligence report explaining the possible threats, and then they send that report to local law enforcement to help them plan. DHS and the FBI did one of these threat assessment assessments ahead of the demonstrations in Portland, Oregon, after the killing of George Floyd last spring. He also did one before Black lives matter Marches in Washington in June, But there was no threat assessment done ahead of the deadly attack on the U. S Capital. NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team has been looking into this. Good morning, Dina. Good morning. I mean, all you had to do. Deena was look at social media for the weeks leading up to the January 6th rally. To know things could potentially get really bad at the Capitol. You didn't even need a formal threat assessment to tell you that did law enforcement Just not pick up on that. No, that was part of the raw intelligence that they were putting together like the New York Police Department scrapes social media, and they sent what they found A Washington There was sort of unverifiable threats, that sort of thing. Bond. There was more raw intelligence that came before that. Just a day after that, Just a day before the pro Trump rally, the Norfolk Field office in the FBI confirmed that They had found specific threats against members of Congress and exchange of maps of the tunnel system under the Capitol complex, and there were people online talking about gathering in Kentucky and Pennsylvania and South Carolina. To meet up before convoy Ng up to Washington and things. Norfolk report was first reported in the Washington Post a couple of days ago. So they were gathering this together then then what happened to where did that raw intelligence go? Well, that's the problem. It never made it much past that raw intelligence stage, so basically they might have picked up a thread or had a human source. Tell them something or that or say that they saw something, but it didn't go to the next step, where it's validated and analyzed and Put into a larger picture put into context. So when the FBI does that they put it in a report called an Intelligence bulletin. When DHS does some something like that they call it a threat assessment report. And then sometimes the two of them put out a report together and typically, then they would send that that finished product out to local law enforcement. So we're going to talk about why that didn't happen. But first, can you just explain? Why is that assessment so much more valuable than straight? Raw Intel? What's the difference? Local law enforcement sees threat assessment says actionable intelligence I mean the bulletins are considered finished right there a synthesis of validated and analyzed intelligence and that helps local law enforcement make informed decisions. So we talk to the former head of DHS Michael Chertoff and get into your point. He said that in this case, the threat was so out in the open. The threat assessment was almost beside the point. It was perfectly obvious. She read the newspaper that there was gonna be a big rally that the president was talking about being be wild and that the focus was going to be the capital. Where they were having a certification vote show. They didn't take rocket science to see if there was a realistic foreseeable risk to the Capitol, and you would enhance the security. I mean, but maybe they need the threat assessment to put the process in place to get troops on the ground or security forces on the ground. I mean, DHS and the FBI have issued intelligence bulletins for four as we mentioned Black lives matter. Protests what was different this time around? Why didn't they treat this the same way? Our reporting found that one of the reasons that they didn't treat it the same way may have been bias. We talk to someone named R P. Eddy and he used to be in the National Security Council. He's done a lot of counterterrorism work. He worked with the NYPD and the LAPD. And now he has his own intelligence consultancy, and he thinks It's something called the invisible obvious. Was it work and basically, that's things that sit right in front of us that we don't notice. It was very hard for these decision makers in these analysts to realize that people who look just like them could want to commit this kind of unconstitutional violence and get little he tried to and want to kill them. So in other words, in other words, this was supposed to be a pro trump rally, and then it wasn't and it was hard for these law and order people to see that this mob these people who were so pro Trump, who had bumper stickers, just like theirs on the back of their cars were going to commit violence. And by the time they figure that out, it was too late. And then it really begs the question. Did they not see it? Because they didn't want to see it. I mean, or they couldn't see it were their blind spots. Exactly And that and that, In fact, a lot of these people that they were seeing, right? I mean they were wearing pro Trump T shirts. They were there to support the president. When you think of those kinds of people. You you don't think about those being the people that you might have to worry will resort to violence and that was what went wrong. It wasn't you know something nefarious. It was just when you looked at it without the analysis. It seemed like this'll was just going to be another rally. And then it wasn't NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team. Thank you.

And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin.

"Years of drought. In with what little the people of madagascar have managed to grow destroyed by flash flooding more than one point three million in crisis in some are even eating ground up clay just to survive movement restrictions relating to covid nineteen has also made it impossible for the poorest of the poor to find work to tide them over the lean season the world food program or p has warned in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Wfp's regional director for southern africa. Lola cash through explains the un agency his helping by empowering communities to withstand future climate shocks. The situation basically has been over the last five years with recurring droughts and only one good harvest and we have heard about it. Before in september we immediately had to come in and attend areas that we have never supported as well for program before because the crisis will saw huge. That success more tally. This is what we're talking about. How many people are you helping. And how many people are in need at this moment in the ground south of madagascar grants would gas in december. We supported five. Hundred thousand people almost half a million. We need to scale up to at least nine hundred thousand adults. They one point three million that are in dire need at this moment. Who are the most in need. The most need basically the poorest of the poor those people that in fact they have sometimes they produce small harvests but having been able to produce due to the lack of water. An incredible sunday's storms. That have hit this year. The harvest has been buried under sand. Basically if you want a picture and those ones also who migrate to cities to look for labor due to covid nineteen having been able to find any labor anywhere even in the fields or even in the city's so basically the situation is much worse than what we have seen in decades. Would we are talking now in the past. We've reported on the situation amount and recently we were hearing that people were forced to scavenge for cactus leaves cactus pears and eating leaves with some salt and some sugar. I mean this is just nowhere to live. Why can we not get in there immediately and do more to behind as we have been doing more we. The government will bank agencies. We having working on resilience bidding activities in a number of districts in the suit and we have been doing quite a lot building on irrigation trying to stop the dunes from moving sand occupies the fields the arable lands working with the communities.

Let's say a conditional transfers that people get food or cash but they do something to improve the livelihoods and that has worked in the communities and this is where we have done most of this work. It has been bedtime this year. Let me yes report. But we are not doing enough. We have to also do much more. We have to help the people to get much more resilient in these very difficult climate change times where we know will never rain enough in south of madagascar so with much more. It's great to hear about the resilience building and certainly there seems to be more awareness that southern africa madagascar is at more risk of climate shocks. So is that how the humanitarian approach is changing is to promote resilience by getting the communities. Involved is what we call. If you want the nexus between humanitarian recovery and development with really need to move from year to year support of variable able to move them into more resilient as is to be able to feed themselves to be able to have water.

What Is Populism?
"For years now. Populists have been popping up all over the globe from india and europe to the philippines in south america and of course into the united states politicians with populist leanings. And those who have gone full-fledged populist in their quest for power have been making a lot of noise and a good deal of trouble think marine le pen in france. Victor bon in hungary rodriguez do taste in the philippines. Former venezuelan president who chavez india's prime minister narendra modi end yes by many people's definition donald trump and the united states. But what is a populist. What is populism answering. That is notoriously difficult. A part of the difficulty arises from the fact that populists can come from all parts of the political spectrum. there are leftist populists around the world who combine various forms of socialism with their populist message. There are those on the right who push anti immigration and anti lgbtq plus platforms in their populism populism in general refers to a to ordinary people as a political ideology or approach it involves emphasizing. The wants needs voices and good qualities of the common people and it usually does so by contrasting this idea of the good common people with the bad elite working against them. Best case scenario a populist leader would be honestly looking at the issues that ordinary people face and helping create solutions for them bus making the will of the people law and that is what populist leaders tend to promise unfortunately what tends to happen and what political scientists have observed in the aforementioned places is these populist leaders bending the definitions of both the common people and the elite in order to gain power with an democratic system and then undermining the very fabric of that democracy in order to stay in power de emphasizing some of the crucial parts of the democratic process such as the articulation of varied interests and the thoughtful mediation of those interests it can be incredibly effective for the leader and incredibly damaging for the democracy that they're distorting and anyone who lives within that democracy who isn't in the group that the leader has defined as the common people so worst case scenario populism redefines the common people as a group with narrow interests and then insists only there will matters a we spoke with political scientists on a malla busa a professor at stanford university and the director of the school's global populisms project which published a white paper in march of twenty twenty called global populisms and their challenges addresses the threats of populism and identifies several possible solutions. According to the paper populism is growing across the globe because of the failure of major political parties to address the thorny issue that ordinary people face. today's world immigration economic inequality and globalism. Just to name a few. This gives populist leaders a sort of foot in the door to claim that not only. The elite members of those political parties are bad but that the whole system is bad. Populist leaders climb to prominence by dividing society splitting it into two not just separate but opposing factions the people and and the elite a university of georgia political scientist by of cast mood explained it this way in an article for vice quote. The key distinction between the people and the elite is not based on class. Our power but on morality is always the pure against the corrupt but again the people is often an exclusive group a to quote the stanford paper populists redefine the people often by excluding vulnerable ethnic or religious minorities immigrants and marginalized economic groups. The result is majority rule without minority rights. Once in power populist leaders attack not only the rights of individuals who don't fit into the defined majority but the very foundations on which the country lies that includes the paper's authors wrote quote the takeover and taming of courts and oversight institutions and new laws that limit the freedom of the media and civil society. We've seen this in the united states with trump calling the press the enemy of the people criticizing judges resisting congressional oversight claiming that elections are rigged flouting laws and claiming that a deep state of bureaucratic actors is out to get him to deny the will of the people he represents. It happens with other populist leaders all over the world schmila busa explained the mindset saying the position is the of the people. Why would you listen to them. The media is the swamp.

There's almost nothing in the populist program that actually makes every day people's lives better populists don't do that. They simply don't. It's not the people who have suffered the most who support populist parties. It's really sort of the people who fear dropping further down inside of prestige and economic status. Populist leaders often don't spring from the working class roots of what's thought of as being the people though considered trump is a self professed billionaire real estate investor.

Food Activism with Jenny Dorsey
"Jimmy dorsey welcome to the model majority. Podcast today thank you for being one of our very first episodes to record in the year. Twenty twenty one which is a very exciting for so many people that we are here at this point but before we get into all that one actually start from the very beginning to get to know your personal story a little bit. i love to hear about. Where did you grow up. how did you grow up. And if anything during that time leads you become who. You are today as a chef but also has an activists usc for sure so i was born in shanghai china and my parents moved to the us when i was around to pursue their both of them are scientists and so they moved to new york. They went to a school in the bronx. And so i followed them when i was up three and a half with grandparents so i was really raised by my grandparents growing up And lived in new york until about eight. Yeah that's i think that's right. I moved to seattle so i. I set my larger chunk of my childhood in seattle washington and ended up going to school College in seattle as well so like good decade plus in seattle cut the no it and during that time also like learned. I think that seattle is not the place for me. I really really wanted to go back to new york so right after college and making that switch back to new york i i. started in management consulting after college. I was a finance major in school. Originally marketing major switched over to finance was not doing so great. Marketing and very quickly knew that finance. It's fine but it was something that is not naturally good at it. You know. I think everyone kind of has their own talents and you can tell you a talented something when it's really yes you're still gonna have to work hard and there's times where you're not doing great job or what. Not but for the most part. Like in makes just intuitively makes sense to you and tell. The numbers intuitively. Don't make sense to me the way that they did to other people And i hate like the serota asian being good at math and talk about that maybe later on but at least it was like a way to get my foot in the door ever since i was young. Who was always a big part of my life. But i didn't even think about it in college or honestly dion for a while because it was never really encouraged by my family. My family going up with more traditional than they are now I'm chinese american and like and we kind of because they were scientists. They were very wary of Career or they felt that. I cannot get ahead because they were you know they were in our lab. They were always the ones that were doing all the work. If you've just look at lab dynamic it's always usually by hawk. Individuals a lot of them. Asian east asian or south asian. Doing all the research all the were all the writing but who is the main like name on the paper that you see who's getting nobel peace prize for their work in science. It's usually white men and that dynamic played out throughout my childhood. I never really consciously understood it but now looking back it was. You know my parents had these bosses. And i'd be like but you do everything and they get all the credit. I'll get it. You know so anyway. I think my parents really wanted me to find a career where i could succeed and not have to be under someone's thumb so to speak and they really wanted you know they've really encouraged less ultra prenatal careers for more careers where you can make money and you can be independent so business. Definitely they definitely encouraged. I was an undergrad business school and they were like yeah. You can now go out as a console. You do make a lot more money like you know so. They just wanted that stability they wanted to non you know. Be a lab technician salary for me Even if they really loved the sciences sciences so anyway with that kind of mind food never really felt like a real clear path. Never really thought about. I never really even explored at. I had no idea what to do right. I think a lot of people who are interested in food don't really know how many years pm and starting my career absolutely hated it. I was in the fashion and luxury division. So i usually work with clients in your fashion and luxury so i spent a lot of time By clothes being obsessed with clothes and shoes and being skinny and it was like a really tough period of time because everyone around me really encourage that behavior as well. It was always about how you lose more way out of your book. Nice you know there was a lot of judgement and it. I think it really came to a head. there was one time at At work where our partner came in and she was very fashionable. Amazing like wealthy Woman and she had brought in a bunch of clothes she had purchased at a sample sale. We We work in chelsea in new york city and chelsea market. Has this like if you've been. There was kind of large area in the center of the market. That always has sampled feels. And i guess she had gone to hurry and she just said that she would just buy everything that basically that was in her size and just figure it out later and it was. I mean there was a lot of things but let's about. But i just remember thinking of this woman coming ahead at all. You know she was. She was such a bath right and the fact that she would come in with a garbage bag full of new clothes designer clothes. It's like it's never ending hole in your heart that you're just trying to fill with dot and you can't ever fill it like spoil alert for anyone who's over there you can't feel it it's impossible it doesn't matter how much money you out you can't feel it because that's not something that can be so thing

I'm jay leno podcasting from singapore today and today we are very privileged to have dr becky bengal who is the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose to join us in the podcast. He repeats sharing with us. The work in a digital transformation and the recent ai breakthrough in ethics and trustworthiness at ross writes thank. You thought the bengals for joining us in the podcast today to be here for many of our listeners. dr bandou rose. Rice name has a long lasting romance and history going back to the first car built more than one hundred years ago but the motos business was separated out some time ago in nine thousand nine hundred seventy three. I believe and rose rises. Now in the business of pioneering the power that matters so tell us more about the journey business. That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications. I'm needles and power systems. Where leading provider of high speed reciprocating engines providing complete propulsion systems distributed energy solutions. So you can say that we. We have a diverse but volume that includes civil defense and power system and it is because w that our activities have tremendous impact on the world today and tomorrow we have always pursued clean safe and competitive solutions and we believe our technology will be fundamental in helping society transition to the low carbon future. And we're not going to do this on our own. We're going to do this. In partnerships and global partnerships to collaborate and co create solutions and with the regional hub. That we have here in singapore. We've developed collaborations with government agencies untucked -demia like a star and anti eu and us to pursue advanced research and technology in daytime smart manufacturing electrical systems. You touch on engine. That paolo many other products across the road strikes businesses. And i believe including aircraft of course and i imagine that you have been collecting analyzing the performance data of your engines for that case and in fact i see from one of your rolls royce presentation that you have been collecting data for some seventy trillion data points across twenty-sixth dimensions on your engines. So i think our listeners will be interested to know how you been. Harnessing that power data to make sense of this of information and into insight and action. And i believe in many ways is supplying the data to a machine learning throughout the life cycle of the engine from the initial stage of designed to manufacturing to maintenance repair. Overhaul that's right so we we've been applying data analytics for more than thirty years and using ai. With our real time engine. Health monitoring system but service w. lunch to back in nineteen ninety nine and our ai. Capabilities are deeply embedded into products and services so they aren't visible And not widely. Now we're able to monitor six thousand to eight thousand flights every day which is equivalent to monitoring three thousand engines in the sky at any one time so we have multiple sensors on board that continuously relay inflammation with were able to analyze five million data promises from our engines every day and we used to provide insights to our engineers for future development and services that we provide for our customers. But it's not just about the asian and the behavioral for engines. Current work includes applying a with a dedicated team that we have inside rolls royce school the day to labs to improve the risk management in supply chains predict market demand improved the efficiency of our operations and more recently nepal systems. Father of the business. We've been applying a on microbes making our industrial powered technology more reliable and sustainable and in the future we see a. I will continue to evolve. Play a bigger role especially as we saw increasing use of cloud based services which will be governed by data ethics framework and this becomes really essential and today more than two hundred projects that are starting to apply more and more of Framework so

"Salt and pepper were mapped bland. Use In eighteen seventy five at the end of the Civil War Charlotte because of the railroad economy had gotten big enough so that they made up of where everybody owned property. They published a city directory. That showed every property owner and their race and what they did for a living and when. I map that there were no black or white neighborhoods When I map that there were no rich or poor districts everything was mixed up and remember this is after the civil war and almost at the end of reconstruction. And so. What you're intuitively would be thinking is well. People are gonNA separate right but they were still living together. They were and it wasn't just the old slavery time patterns because Charlotte went on a boom would between the railroads and the fact that the old southern centers like Charleston kind of collapsed when the slavery economy collapsed. Charlotte grew Charlotte doubled in size between the eighteen fifties and early eighteen seventies and so they were building new stuff if they wanted to build segregation. They would've built it but they didn't. Yes but somebody wants to live in the suburbs right time so so we have to think about moving away outside the city to a place called dourth and that's happening in the late. Eighteen hundreds and Tom. Scotto read here about that. He's gonNA share with us. On May the twentieth 1891 throng who size Shirley gladden the heart of Edward? Worth LADDER TURNED OUT FOR THE LOT. Auction? Since Revolutionary Times local citizens had set aside may the twentieth anniversary of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. It's time for community celebration here to four said the Charlotte conical. They have been held in honor of sentiment. Only but today we celebrate a new era a new business era for Charlotte. Reporters counted two thousand people in attendance as a team of professional real estate. Auctions from Tennessee ran their way up and down the streets of deal worth the new suburb along in front of them ran boys with red flags to mark the boundaries of the House. Lots behind and all about where people in hacks and buggies on horseback and on foot with maps in hand eagerly bidding for the ground there was no drag the auctioneers. Hackwood stop in front of a lot. It's dimensions and locations would be called out on how much so much for a front foot. The option or would call out five six seven seven fifty eight ten thirteen would come back. The quick response sold these papers. Don't write like that anymore. Dill worth announced a visiting reporter bids fair to become the resident portion of the city for Charlotte's. Four hundred. Okay so. Tom Did that did it. Take them and understand that they had the sale. And by the way one of the things you mentioned the book is this is not going to be exclusive neighborhood just for for white people right and they were all still worse messed with my whole notion of suburbia was supposed to be when bill was laid out in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. It had big house lots along the main boulevard. The boulevard was supposed to run all the way around it. Part of the Boulevard was known as East Boulevard. Part of it was known as South Boulevard. Part of it became known as Morehead Street in the fourth side would have been. We're diller throat is but those were big houses but you went off the main streets and the houses got littler and one set of streets had African names Evidently to be sold to African Americans a different part of the neighborhood one of the first a lot buyers was a black church so the Raffarin and Americans in that part of the neighborhood and then down South Boulevard. There were factories and the folks who worked in the factories. Very blue collar. People lived in Dilworth as well so the notion of an exclusive suburb. Dill was a suburb. But it wasn't exclusive okay. So we're almost getting to one thousand nine hundred and it doesn't look like Charlotte is moving toward segregation until something happens right. And what is it? It's called fusion. It's actually called the backlash diffusion? I think about that. So let's explain with this. Read a little bit about fusion. Then we're GONNA come back talk about that because this is a very pivotal point in time for Charlotte in terms of becoming segregated. How many folks have heard of the fusion? Is this things that any a few folks that how many folks have heard of something called the white supremacy campaign of Eighteen. Ninety eight more folks. There's a community read going on right now. A book about the white supremacy campaign of eighteen ninety eight the roots of it were an economic downturn that caused tremendous fear tremendous social upheaval and out of that came a new party called the populist party. The populist party in the existing Republican Party fused came together hard to believe that the parties then Democrat Republican. We're kind of the opposite of what they are now at that point. African always voted for the Republican Party. But let me pin. Just add more context. You have blue collar workers African Americans and they come together to form a voting block in the late eighteen hundreds which became this fusionists movement and it knocked back the Democrats on their heels not same. Democrats of today a different form there the white supremacy Democrats. They didn't like it. This read it and we'll talk some more. Alrighty sorting out of land into separate neighborhoods might have continued gradually haltingly in. Charlotte pushed forward by the growing size. The economy but pulled back by faith and tradition if not for a series of political upheavals rock the region during the eighteen ninety s under the banner of the New Populist Party voters at the base of the Social Pyramid small farmers new factory workers. African Americans suddenly found their voice all across the south in North Carolina the populace and their allies in the Republican Party now African Americans would vote for Republicans because that was the party of Lincoln and so think about an African American voting block. Add to it now. This populace block by the mid eighteen ninety s the populace than their allies and the Republican Party. Won Control of the governorship in Raleigh Both houses of the state legislature voting out men of the elite who had long governed the state to wealthy southerners. The populist Republican challenge was all the more disturbing because it came not from outside the region. As reese construction had for from within old line. Democrats lashed back with disenfranchisement. Laws that bar. Most African Americans and many poor whites from voting and while disenfranchisement solved the problem of politics. It could not wash away the sting reality of the challenge itself over the course of a decade. A bitter struggle in the eighteen ninety s North Carolina's elite came to see their society as sharply at odds along class lines. It became painfully clear that lower cased whites. That's a quote and African Americans no longer felt deference toward quote the better classes prescribed rules of intercourse which I quoted in an earlier passage and respect for Welson position had only recently seemed ordered by Providence god-given but by nine thousand nine hundred that traditional bedrock would shattered and what Tom referred to earlier. We have an author. Our show Girardi wrote a book called Cape FEAR rising explores the the only coup American history that happened in Wilmington North Carolina. Basically the white supremacists came in and red shirts and so forth and they took over the government. They expelled a lot of African Americans killed a lot of people and took over the town of Wilmington. That was the environment at the time and I guess one of my questions. Time is the politicians. We're looking to gain back control of the governorship and the various offices. In that essentially led to the Jim Crow laws the followed right right and that then led to all of this agregation in the intensive segregation that followed right until I grew up in the segregated south and assumed it had always been that way but here in Charlotte I can remember separate white and colored waiting rooms at the train station. The bus station. That was a new thing in eighteen ninety six. I can remember African American. Sit at the back of the bus before that the BACK OF THE STREETCAR. That was a new thing. All across North Carolina new law in one thousand nine hundred.

"In Queensland and northern New South Wales. They join eighty day students as well Patricia scheme is a principal stem advisor and teacher in residence at Cutie. She was a head of maths at school in Brisbane. So why join a university? It's a unique opportunity to be able to affect students on a broader perspective. And my normal focuses mathematics and a little bit of physics, but this is stem, so very broad and across all of Queensland and northern New South Wales. And to the people of scientists security understand what jobs you have to do. And how you do your jobs a teacher to some degree. We have programs that we're going to introduce a stem cluster for teachers to come along and to give us feedback specifically about what they want. And that will fade back into academics in stem fields. So that they know that there are teachers in schools who need professional development, for example, in psychology. This news new syllabus coming in across Queensland, and then external testing environment from next year and academics here want to be able to help teachers to be able to teach the new content in a meaningful way. And what do they say about what they need these days technology, definitely is a big need for teachers. But also not just how to use the technology, but how to contextualized it had to put it in a project. That's real world and meaningful one of the pieces of feedback that we get from teachers regularly is the hands on component of L, professional development teachers get in and they play with the technology that learn how to use it coming up for the new syllabuses. It's definitely an area. Of need in statistics. There's more statistics in for example, the new psychology syllabus and in the new sciences. What about the human element? What about interacting with the children the problem? I've mentioned again. And again in science show is how teachers think they have to be on nece-, and they have to know all the answers, and they're really lack in confidence in that regard. I think especially with technology teachers are learning along with the students if there is scope for students to be creative and develop open ended projects, then it the students problem solving and that creative design process that is the focus of work the teachers are there to guide them ask them. Good questions teach them how to be reflective and to evaluate which is quite a challenging thing for students, and then to go back and say, I need to fix this or I can change this. We definitely focus on teachers asking the right questions rather than being the person who knows everything. Well, how does that apply to maths because there is one? Right answer. So legend has it. And you look pretty darned if you're they're not knowing how to do the answer to a question. How do you cope yourself personally in that regard? I don't think there is necessarily one right answer in Mets for me as a maths teacher the emphasis is all about the thinking along the way there isn't necessarily one right answer. And if you set a problem up in the right way, then there's going to be lots of different strategies that students apply and think of and they're all equally valuable, and I had to use logical thinking processes to work something in it also means that I can ask questions of students that they can build on allege themselves rather than me just telling them an answer. They're not going to learn anything if I tell them and one of the things that I really am for size is Carol Twix work on growth mindsets. It's getting a problem that you can't do is actually a really. Great thing because it's the challenge that grows your brain going to learn if you're not doing things that you can't do do you ever spend some time in class yourself trying to solve a problem and not being able to do so on that day, but coming back to it and then come back to it. So that the children are along with you on this incredible adventure as specially with more talented students. We do a lot of immigrant workers and Aden's western stretch with problems that I don't necessarily know the answer to straight away, but we can go away and try different techniques, especially comparing maybe an algorithm method technological method..

"Georgia. You've got Stacey Abrams. And you've got Brian Kemp who is a secretary of state in Georgia. This is a quintessential southern race. And I mean that of the most modern of terms because here you have what is the New South? That's what Stacey Abrams Trist represent and the New South is culturally diverse. It takes women into account more. Than ever before. And it talks a lot about empowering people. You have the old south and that's Brian camp. He's a Republican. He's a white male and the old south, basically talks about taxes, cutting taxes about law enforcement and about in this case being a political maverick in the in the nothing John McCain model a model, but more along the lines of President Donald Trump. He says he's an politically incorrect conservative, and he promises that he will use his great big pickup truck to take legal immigrants to the border. There's been a lot of star power in the state of Georgia. I mean, we saw Oprah Winfrey. We saw a will Ferrell. Stacey Abrams side, we've seen President Trump a lot for Brian camp, politics, and and popularity aside. What are the people of Georgia saying, well, one of the biggest issues we have in this race right now is the ongoing allegation of voter suppression. And what I mean by voter suppression is Georgia has some of the toughest election laws in the country. Overseen by Brian campus, fraternity of states, it's twenty ten and in that time more than two million Georgians names have been purged from the polls that means even if they didn't move if they died if for some reason were ineligible devote perhaps because of going to prison or committing a felony. Then. They're still here, and they're still eligible under most states laws, but in Georgia, they're not they've been perched from the roles and some of them won't find out until they try to vote in this election. And that's something that a lot of people find very distasteful, and that is something that has certainly been a major element of this campaign is that something that reporters in Georgia are kind of bracing themselves for maybe the possibility of this being a very big story on election day, people going and saying their names are no longer on the voting rolls. Yeah. It is. It's it's one of the big stories that we're sort of bracing ourselves for the other is we have in Georgia just in the last couple of whether the last week or so we've had a big court fight over absentee ballots. Now, there's a story behind this. And the very brief version of that is because Georgia's voting machines or the old DR G touchscreen machines, which don't give you a very good sense of security at the polls experts tell us these are the most insecure. Balloting systems in America. People have been urged by voting transparency organizations to cast paper ballots will Georgia's exact match law, which is one of the other very stringent voter ID laws era in the United States. That says if your signature on the ballot doesn't exactly match the signature on your application for a paper. Ballot. Then that vote could be disqualified voting rights advocates went to federal court and got a federal judge to agree that the values that are cast aside. Can't simply be disqualified. They now must be held as provisional, and if they're held as provisional ballots than those who cast them have a chance to prove who they say they are in a subsequent hearing. So do you think that there is a a good possibility that we may not know the outcome of the Georgia races until much later. Yeah. I think that's a real possibility. And I think that would certainly throw things into a quandary because here's one other little. Caveat. We have a libertarian candidate who's pulling in the in the high single digits. It looks like there's a very good possibility that not only will we have to wait to count all the ballots because there will be these challenges that can go on for up to three days after the deadline the Tuesday of the election, but we might also see this runoff situation.
