Fresh update on "north dakota" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Well, if you've heard or read any news stories about Native Americans in the past year You've probably had something to do with how badly their community has been hit by Cove it like black Americans and others, Native Americans and more likely to be hospitalized and die from the virus, and part of the problem has been a lack of medical care and tribal areas. But that may be changing. An article in the February issue of Health Affairs shows a rise in native people graduating from medical school. Nationally, only 1% of medical students are American, Indian or Alaskan native but at the University of North Dakota Medical School that fig There is much larger at 10% graduating from there in med program journalists Sarah Kwan is writing about this to say many of these graduates working travel communities and they stay there long term. There are a lot of factors that have contributed to this shortage that we see and one of them is. Many doctors will receive encouragement early in their lives to see themselves as a doctor some day and to take all the steps that are required to get to the point where they could become a doctor and As the assistant director of inmate had pointed out in an interview that native students are often less likely than their peers to receive encouragement early in their education to pursue medicine or two, for example, have doctors and their own families that could guide them through this what is very often a large, long and arduous process of even getting to the point where that they are in medical school. Is there a point you'd like to leave us with here, whether it be on native Americans Cove it or maybe where the to come? Together. Yeah, I mean, I think it's just that there are linkages between the shortages that we see of doctors and American Indian communities. And these really stark disparities and covert outcomes. These longstanding, widespread shortages of doctors in tribal communities are linked to challenges like difficulty and access and care and high rates of chronic health conditions, And these are respected as for poor health outcomes overall, and we've really seen the consequences of this in the pen. Dominic. When you see the numbers, you know, American Indians in Alaska natives with Corona virus have been hospitalized at five times the rate of white Americans to their there are links here, and you know if we're going to be able to make a difference in these disparities for the next pandemic and other pandemics in the future, one of the things that will have to look at is how do we boost the ranks of American Indian doctors? That's freelance journalist Sarah Kwan, talking to her own Dimitri Sodas She is based in the San Francisco Bay area can read her article about more Native Americans and Alaska native people graduating from med school at.
Would you let your face be your passport?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances

Republicans Push Back On Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland For Interior Secretary
"And Natural Resource is committee today held confirmation hearings for New Mexico representative Deb Holland to be the next secretary of interior. A confirmation would be historic. She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative

Who is QB2 in 2021 NFL Draft?
"It would have been fully justified and with that we welcome you back as always live from the seaport district appear seventeen brought to you by chase. I green this get up and we have a huge our coming your wine. It starts with this. It's a quarterback sneak mc shays make board is in and wait till you see the first four picks. He's with us live to break down off the top. Then wait a minute. What did russell say. Is he talking about getting sri. Didn't from seattle the wild ride in. Nfl history continues. And then we'll tell you how the shawn watson saga plays out and what it will mean for every team in the nfl. All that and more as we get out with you when this hour which starts right now with todd mcshay post super bowl mock draft. It's available right now on espn plus all it. It's fascinating a number one. That's no big surprise. He's got trevor lawrence going number one to urban meyer and the jaguars. But here's where it gets interesting. He also has quarterbacks going to three and four at two he has the jets taking. Byu's zack wilson who has been rising up. Everybody's draft what he has been be talk of the nfl draft process so far at three overall. He's projecting trade the panthers moving up from eight to take north dakota state's train lance to be their quarterback of the future which leaves ohio states justin field sitting there. Four and mcshea has the falcons taking him fields the second highest total qbr in college football season and then jones sliding down a little bit later to make five quarterbacks in the first round in there he is the man with the mic board. It is mcshea and it's awesome. Let's start with this todd. We all understand. Trevor lawrence going number one. Nothing even to discuss. How firmly planted in. Your mind is zack. Wilson right now as the number two quarterback in this draft. I think very firmly. The first thing i do when the season is over and a govan studied the top quarterbacks. Because i know that's what we're going to talk about for the majority of this process leading up to the draft and after lawrence. There's a little bit of a gap and then at zack wilson. And then there's a gap between gods trey lance from north dakota state and justin feels from ohio state. So i think he is clearly the number two quarterback in this class. The question becomes greenie. Is that the jets taking two or the jets gonna move out and allow a team like a carolina to that number two spot to take him. And that all depends on the domino's in terms of the veteran quarterbacks right now where does shawn watson wind up carson wentz. We know is going to get moved to chicago indianapolis. I think joe douglas. The general manager is kind of waiting. And seeing some of these other quarterbacks go and he's fielding phone calls he's not aggressively making calls but fielding calls to see maybe if they can move sam darnold and if they do exactly since the pick for the jets at number two and if not as i said i think the jets will move outta to and wilson will still wind up being that number number two overall pick in this class. I grew the. I've been saying for a while. I agree with you completely. He'll be number two. The question is who winds up making the peck. Then the other part of this is. I'm old enough to remember a time when we wondered if justin fields might supplant trevor lawrence as the number one draft now all of a sudden these the fourth quarterback off the board. How did that happen. You go back. And study games against indiana northwestern. And then the college football playoff national championship game against alabama. He completed around fifty two percent of throws with five interceptions. Those games in my opinion. You look at it physically. He's big. he's sturdy strong who mobile. He's got a big arm all the traits that you look for. But he likes to see his receivers. Come open and get stuck on that. I read very frequently. So you compare him with trae. Lance and i have identical grades on the to train. Lance didn't play the level of competition. Didn't play as many games as is justin fields but i think he processes the game a little quicker in terms of going from his first into a second and third and seeing the entire field. So it won't surprise me if it feels is third quarterback off the board. But i think they're kind of bunched together in that third tier of quarterbacks behind lawrence wilson and then the other two and then i want to ask you about the guy that you currently have fifth because i'm a regular listener of the first draft podcast and so i'm listening the other day to you and field. Yates and mel kiper talking about what was going on at the senior bowl and everyone is raving about matt jones. Your buddy mel had max jones moving this thing and i believe he has him sort of. I believe he hasn't projected higher than you have in projected. What do you see for mack. Jones as this process goes on the fifth quarterback in the first round. Well i think what's going to happen. He's matt jones is going to benefit from the fact that these four quarterbacks are gonna come off the board quickly and it's probably going to be cut because of trades moving up. I have matt jones going number twelve overall right now in a i had chicago moving up to twelve in san francisco. Moving back to twenty we have to see where carson wentz go. It does go to

She is representing the red lake band of chippewas. The white earth band of ojibway the indigenous rights group honor the earth and the sierra club. In fighting the three hundred forty mile pipeline tributary third. The minnesota court of appeals rejected the request for a preliminary injunction to stop work on it and bridge. The canadian company building line three claims it is exempt from needing a new presidential permit to cross the us. Canadian border because the pipeline is considered a replacement project and it secured that permit decades ago. However naismith says it's an entirely new pipeline along an entirely new route so it really is a new project. In any case she said the us president can resend the permit at will like president biden. Just did for the keystone excel tar sands pipeline. A second option is to get the army corps of engineers to resend several permits. She argues the core granted illegally last november under the clean water act which allowed construction to start but the law is very clear that before issuing a permit under the clean water act and an evaluation under the national environmental policy act or niba that the army corps needed to look at the risk of spills from the pipeline and needed to look at how that risk of spills would affect local tribes and tribal resources and they did neither here in the line.

Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton
"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand
The Philadelphia Eagles Are Fielding Trade Calls for Carson Wentz – Are the Chicago Bears a Fit?
"I want to play this for you. So we are all I mean, all of us, regardless of where you are. What you think about Carson Wentz and what the Eagles should do The one thing none of us can find any sort of common ground on Is what this guy is actually worth. I mean, I I'd be floored if he's got a first round pick, So I think how we could drop a number two or number three. I think that's possible. So I think the Eagles could have to attach a pick to get rid of the salary. I wouldn't rule it out. I don't think they would want to do that. And I think they're going to try and teach you avoid that. But the wide range of possibilities is endless. And and the teams are easy to figure out like how they might need to call back with the wide range. Possibly. So I'm looking this article. This was the big lead had this when they've got teams you're giving up multiple first round picks. And what are we talking about here? Multiple won the first round picks. For for a situation that obviously we all know is a toxic one. I think that's preposterous. But the Bears were mentioned. There is a team and I heard this today. So this from NBC Sports Chicago Adam Hodges, the guy you're gonna hear, hear, he covers the bears out there. What makes it so interesting is he's talking up once and why would be a good move, But at the same time, he can't go 10 or 15 seconds without saying like why he's not very good. It shows what a perplexing trade This could end up being for whoever makes it Here's Adam Hodge, NBC SPORTS Chicago If you could get him for a third round pick. Would you roll the dice knowing you're taking on what? 75 $80 Million in commitments? He is a guy that definitely intrigues me and especially at that price that you just brought up cap because you're right. The contracts huge. So it's one of those situations where it's not quite the Brock Osweiler situation because broadcast while I couldn't play if we're being honest But You're taking on so much money and you're helping the Eagles out in that situation that Yeah, The price is going to come down a second round pick for Carson Wentz. I would totally do that. Because in this case with Carson Wentz, he's a guy who can play. Yes, you looked awful. This year he got benched for Jalen hurts. Obviously, he was bad this year, but he was also an M V P candidate at one time and look really, really good on a team that went on to win the Super Bowl. Granted, He wasn't playing Nick Foles was, but I don't think that They got better because Carson Wentz got hurt that year. This is a kid who I liked a lot coming out of North Dakota State. There are some questions about him behind the scenes, maybe some of his leadership but he can play and he's a definite upgrade for the Bears. In my

In suing to stop the pipeline. Rosebud sioux president rodney bordeaux was busy coordinating cove nineteen vaccinations. When he heard biden cancelled. The permit agreed victory. Hopefully that's the end of it but will continue to fight it we're gonna watch it but pipelines supporters are seeing the collapse of ten years of work. Tc energy which declined to comment for the story. Released a statement in anticipation of the permit cancellation yesterday and said it.

Five billion dollars in the project in a statement. Yesterday kenny culver biden and prime minister justin trudeau to discuss the decision.

"north dakota" Discussed on AI Today Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Insights, Experts, and Opinion
"Legislation That data privacy legislation though is outward from the state government. I again as i spoke about a while ago. Right internally within state government were already securing arcada. Ready categorizing Our data and making it usable by our agencies ir citizens so we already have that level of governments within the within the four walls of the state But i think that that that legislation around data privacy and how it can be leveraged. By is i i as i as i read the national review for example on around data privacy rights. It's it's beginning to coalesce even more and the inning. Two people are beginning to see the realities The bad of what can happen with data privacy if you read books like Weapons of mass destruction or human compatible. Right you can see kind of some of the bad things can happen if you don't have good governance transparency audibility and explain ability in place So i think that in my mind that technology is certainly certainly Morphine and becoming more usable. More pervasive more ambient if you will but also think that governance is going to going to have to assume that same same Audibility explain ability and transparency and become more ambient as well yeah. We reported that book. Weapons of mass destruction so we always encourage our listeners to to check out books definitely check that out and i am very excited for autonomous vehicles. So i'll have to keep an eye on. What north dakota is doing. So that i don't need to ever drive again. What dorming thank you so much for joining us today on this podcast absolutely.

Who is the chief data officer for the state of north dakota so high doormen and thanks for joining us today. Kathleen ron thank you for the opportunity. Either to hang out with you guys for a little bit. Yeah we'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role as the chief data officer for the state of north dakota. Sure sure well. Good morning everyone So my my background is You know went to college. Got a degree in computer science mathematics and then when often like everyone else When i lived in saint louis you. It was kind of a requirement. You had to work for mcdonnell. Douglas which is now boeing corporation. So did that for it. But but then after a while Got got involved in consulting and worked my way up through the Consulting ranked says developer and they as a project manager is the data architect the solution architect and then finally got into a position of driving business intelligence and analytics for a couple of large international consulting firms where ran their north america. Big data and the i practice And the great ride. A thoroughly enjoyed all of the things we did. I think we added a lot of value to Our customers which was private industry And had great teams Had a strong onshore team strong offshore kimes and delivered a lot of value. But i think two years ago Over two years ago. When i applied for this position as the chief data officer At first i really didn't want position Didn't like the idea of state government state government has has a bad connotation Of kind of a nine to five job And a people people who just weren't really motivated to To move the world change the world and my boss who i interviewed my off. Now the cio. Sean reilly Who i interviewed with his his final comment to me was well. I can't pay what you make today. But are you wanna paycheck or do want to change the world. And i had never thought about life that way. Never tried to change the world and So i decided to take on this opportunity This was the first chief data officer position for the state of north dakota so there were a lot of unknowns Certainly certainly my presence Was a bit chaotic for the organization. Because i came in with a completely different agenda and completely different way of looking at the world through the eyes of the pillars that are assigned a line to me which application development and automation. And the second pillar is data analytics data science artificial intelligence and had some very different opinions about those things. And how we might move those forward So as i became involved with this role i became an. I had made an assumption that every state had a chief data officer come to find out there are only twenty seven of us out of fifty states So it's it's an interesting It's an interesting mix of of individuals who are chief data officers and getting to know them is. It has been a really amazing opportunity because they have such a very backgrounds and they bring such such different perspectives to cheap date officer role I like to joke and tell people that the last thing i focus on data which is obviously not true but but my real focus is really around cultural change within the city physician and what that means in the context of not not necessarily data. Because i have to executives are on my team who Are just are just brilliant at running the operations and managing the two pillars within my organization. My my role is really focused around partnering with the cto or chief customer success officer and our chief information security officer around. How do we do. We changed the nature of how we use data. Let's make data usable As you can imagine in in state government As in as in any organization that i've i watched through in my thirty two thirty three years of of doing this kind of work I hear the same three things. My data quality is bad. I don't know where my data comes from on my business on excel spreadsheets That that mantra exists here We're slowly changing that. I think we do a better job than a lot of industries and and other groups that i've seen At corralling that at changing that culture and focus focusing people on actually being us data. We've got a ways to go but in the two and a half years since i've been here I think we've made some some great strides in the way. We're starting to us and think about data. Yeah that's really interesting because it's a little surprising. Only twenty seven of the fifty states have a chief data officer gets formally defined although it actually see officer role itself is fairly new so maybe not totally surprising. I'm wondering what percentage of fortune one thousand companies. I'm hoping it's much higher percentage but also people may not be aware that you know. North dakota has a pretty deep technology bench. I mean you have a governor there who who basically joined great plains and road that company gigantically and became chairman of the board last seen and lots of other companies. That's a pretty fairly interesting technology bench. And i think that's really really neat That we have technology roles that are that understand the role of technology and understand the nuances of data And i think that's fantastic and you actually shared some of those insights at an ai in government event that we ran last month december twenty twenty. Which is available if you go to a i in government dot com and you look for the past Episodes if you will the past sessions december We had a great panel of chief. Data officers of which doorman was part and he shared. You shared some really interesting insights into With your experiences as a chief data officer for the state of north dakota so for those maybe on the podcast that we want to encourage them to watch that that full panel or maybe provide a little bit of insight. You know maybe you could share some of those things that you shared with us if you can remember some of those great things about the experiences of of being. Ceo at the state.

Because i have to executives are on my team who Are just are just brilliant at running the operations and managing the two pillars within my organization.
Will Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers retire after NFL playoffs?
"Watching Philip Rivers yesterday, Ray Should Frank Reich be interested? I think you'd be interested anyway. You know if, um if rivers really is and it sounds like and he's sort of been giving off this, you sort of been giving off this vibe much of the year that You know, it's I'm no one coming to the end, and he thought he knew it was time to get away from the Chargers, and you wanted to take one last shot with another team to get over the hump. And he did, and he got to the playoffs and he got down to the last throw. But It's like every Philip Rivers game I've ever seen. Wasn't it? A lot of them there, Right? Maybe or s O. He's down by a couple points going for that last drive. And more often than not doesn't make it. Yeah, it seems that that does seem to be the pattern there. Um, but I kinda got the feeling Um, in fact, even kind of seeing his postgame remarks and just watching him talking about the guys on the other team at the end of the game. You can you just kind of get the feeling you're saying good bye. I mean, you just Was like I kind of gave us a try. You know, I came to a good team. We had a chance had a good season. But you know what? You know, it's timeto probably step away. I just kind of got that vibe from him. And if that's the case Then you know Frank Reich is in the market for a quarterback. And if the fact that you know Ian's reporting that that's what that would if Carson Wentz is leaving Philadelphia, that's where you wanna go. Well, sure enough. I mean, that's the logical place. Everybody's been saying that it makes perfect sense. It's a good team. I mean, they're not there right there. I mean, their defense is really good. They have a good running back. Um, I mean, that's probably a good city for him, too. Yeah, you know, it's it's not a high, intense media city, which I think would benefit him. Yeah, I think In many ways, Indianapolis would probably feel like You know, Bismarck, you know, I mean, there's there's There's there is. It's not it. Philadelphians, Indiana It's one step away from North Dakota. Yeah, I mean it Z for a guy who clearly is very Dakota Ondas in a small town guy. No, just, you know, let's face it. Philadelphia. Really? If you're an athlete in Philadelphia, especially for the quarterback in Philadelphia, you're living a fish bowl existence. 24 7, and I don't know that he was never all that comfortable with that. I think Indiana And Indianapolis would probably be more comfortable fit in to be going to the coach that he knows that has a relationship and he's enjoyed tremendous success with so I mean, in almost every way you could possibly dice this thing. I mean, it seems to make perfect sense to me. Doesn't mean it's going to happen. But if it if he's going to move I mean to me, that's 98% the move. That makes sense.
Is There A Way To Speed Up COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution?
"The question for today how can the. Us turn things around and quickly get vaccine distribution on track. Here with me. is dr amish adultery. An infectious disease physician and a senior scholar at johns hopkins center for health security. Thanks for coming on the takeaway dr short. Thank you for having me so doctor. Let's start with hospitals. They were rightly given priority for the vaccine. But now they're getting blamed for the slow rollout and for not vaccinating workers fast enough. So you're you work at several hospitals. Can you give us a look into what's happening there. You have to remember that. There's no such thing as a hospital worker. Whose only job is to vaccinate people. So what hospitals are doing are pulling people with other jobs to ronco vaccination clinic and these covert vaccines are not. The same thing is giving employees. Tetanus shots hepatitis b. shots influenza shots. There's a lot involved and the same hospitals that are tasked with responding to an inordinate number of patients are being asked vaccine so there's a lot of precautions that they have to put in place got to set up timings for people to be vaccinated. They've got to find a place to vaccinate people in a place where people can stay fifteen minutes after their shot. In case they have an allergic reaction. They have to be in close proximity to an emergency department. In case severe allergic reaction happens and it it just takes some time to scale this up so hospitals. Don't have the resources to do this in a rapid fire manner and i think they shouldn't be blamed for this. They're being actually tasked to do something. Where the government really has failed because there was not much planning done for that last mile of vaccination and it fell to hospitals to set up their own programs and their own prioritization. And all of that in it's in. It's not surprising to me that there's been lags and delays but it is speeding up and i do think the answer. Here's more resources. What could hospitals do with those more resources. If hospitals had more resources they could have vaccination basically happening twenty four seven instead of at specific times. They can vaccinate more people at a given time. Instead of having certain slots for people to to come to be vaccinated they would have other people to be able to monitor people after their vaccination so if there is an allergic reaction. It's not the same people that are giving the vaccine that have to kind of keep their eye on. Who's who's around in the in the room. That might be having an allergic reaction all of that would make vaccination more seamless and faster but some of the slowness because this vaccine is available on an emergency use authorization and that requires forms consent and checking that consent to make sure it's all accurate. All of that does take time which is very different than when you go to get a flu. Shot at employee health at hospital. Just they basically just jab you as soon as you walk in the door. You yourself have had your first dose. Is that correct yes okay. Have you witnessed any reluctance or skepticism in one of the hospitals. I'm on staff at. There's a lot of misinformation being spread among certain members of the healthcare staff including nurses and doctors where basically every conspiracy theory that you've maybe seen on. Social media is getting repeated in a hospital hallway. So yes that does happen in my experience. It's been really minimum of people and not something. That's generally reflective of what healthcare workers think of this vaccine but clearly the anti vaccine movement and all of those conspiracy theories healthcare workers are not unfortunately immune from it and that has played a role trying to combat that misinformation with facts. And so doctor. How do you balance the need. To prioritize healthcare workers and the elderly with also just getting as many people vaccinated as possible. Who want the vaccine. You have to remember that the overall goal is to get all the eligible populations vaccinated so that this public health emergencies behind us and we cross the herd immunity threshold and hospitals are not inundated. There is a reason for the priority scheme though in order to get the vaccine into people where it will have the biggest impact fast and that's healthcare workers nursing home residents and then kind of moving through other priority games. But you have to remember that we can't be dogmatically wedded to that in if that schedule is an obstacle to people getting vaccinated if it's causing hospitals consternation on how they're going to evacuate and how they're going to deal with excess doses. Maybe they've unfrozen a lot more doses than they needed that day and they've got some that they're gonna either throw out or give to somebody. That's not priority group. One a the answer. There is to give it to somebody. Who's in another priority. Because you have to remember. The overarching goal is to get people vaccinated. And we can't let an overly bureaucratic process steiner that goal and it's not right for governors and other politicians to try and penalize hospitals for doing the best they can and i think that's the most counterproductive is finding hospitals or decreasing their allocation. If they're going outside of the priority group because the goal is always going to be to get the shot into people's arms and who would be the next priority group would it be people with preexisting conditions for instance so overall the cdc says priority group one be would be people that are above the age of seventy five years of age as well as front facing workers so meat packing plants or in grocery stores or transportation workers. That's the overall phase one beat but some states are saying we're going to go to maybe above age sixty five so there is some variation from state to state. But it's generally people that are going to be dealing with the general public but they're not healthcare workers as well as people of advanced age because we know they have a high risk for severe complications. Are there states that have done a particularly good job so far. Well if you look at states in the number of doses that they've allocated north dakota south dakota standout They were places that got hit very hard and most recently and they seem to be rolling out vaccine at a faster pace than many other many other states some states only maybe fifteen percent of their doses have been allocated but again that may be a lot of the idiosyncrasies of each state and you likely will see things homogenize soon as state start ramping up and getting things in order but would say in general. No state is doing the best job Everybody could do better and we have to do better in order to put this epidemic pandemic behind us. So what are you looking for. The biden administration to do what can be what can be done to speed things up the by the ministration can ensure that hell that states have. The funding in there was a funding. Bill passed on christmas eve. But it's also just trying to understand what's going on each state and meeting states where they are. Some states may need different types of help. And i think that's going to be important as having the cdc step into its role of being this coordinating body for the states and allowing the public health response to to really be fine tuned by the cdc adding its expertise to what's going on in each in each state. I think it's also the case that we need more guidance on what to do when you have leftover doses and nobody left in the priority group. Yesterday the cdc did have a press conference or a meeting where they did talk about the fact that the goal is not to have vaccine in the fridge but into into people's arms and we shouldn't be wasting doses or doing anything like that so that type of work that kind of leadership of how this vaccination program should go would would be very useful. I also think the federal government should think about trying to help coordinate mass vaccination sites especially as we get into the community dwelling people people who aren't in hospitals nursing homes who are relatively easy to vaccinate but people who live at home can be done. It's at stadiums. Can they be done at convention. Centers Can we use old school gymnasiums during h one n one i got vaccinated at an old school gym. Can we start doing that to make things move much more seamlessly faster sort of borrowing from what israel is doing. Which is the country. That's leading the world in

"Okay so today's topic. As i mentioned earlier is on eugene butler aka midnight rider. Now i think that was the main reason why the story because i love that the nickname yes and what it has to do with is is ridiculous as hell but i was like because the t. one of one of the sources i found The title of the article was called the strange tale of the midnight rider.

The butcher butler sounds like what material and am sure at some point. I won't make really crappy movie about him though just much if you've already exist true so in the early nineteen. Hundreds residents near the tiny town of niagara in the new state of north dakota began to hear strange noises in the night. The sound of galloping hooves punctuated the quiet countryside. It was farmer. Eugene butler again. Who armor eugene farm. Eugene like that. Jane who had recently started riding his horses late at night yelling at the top of his lungs. It was strange behavior from a man who was known to be a wealthy successful if somewhat reclusive farmer yet but you go by farm yelling hollering. I'm won't get you at a slingshot or something. If you're going late at night yellen yellen on your horses. Yeah only two reasons you that you're this horseman to your paul revere. Otherwise you don't do that. No don't come nowhere near my house. Nope niagara is a peaceful form town of about fifty or so residents and is located on highway. Two on the westernmost stretch of grand forks. County the highway to just number two just number two. How forty five b. Or something. Like that nope. The townsfolk folks had no idea that in the coming years. The story of eugene butler would get much much stranger eugene. There was born in eighteen. Forty nine one of three sons born to ephraim and rebecca butler. I'm loving these named male school. Names from ephraim. After you know. He's just like a rough gruff farmer. Take no cracker driving some bitch. Caputo is he was of english descent with his family. Having roots in braintree england. Braintree is awareness. Damn name for a little town braintree. Sounds like a company town name you to give it up to the english. He came from a prosperous family and moved to grand forks county in eighteen eighty with a number of others from new york state jealous. Why lived in eighteen eighty. Oh man i would. I've always said i've been born in the wrong century. I should have been an old west guy. Yeah no soap. No showers out there right right making food. Somebody lip off doc holliday. That you've been al officer Actually no probably been lull. Allow me i would. I would love to been like rooster cogburn federal marshal. Yeah territory marshall or something like that you would have joined the rougher more of a bad guy. I'm not a murderer. But i i like to go. After bad people you would have been like a one of the regulator been regular full. He picked out three quarters of a section of land near larimore and started farming in eighteen. Eighty two he rapidly improved the land and built a substantial home and he was by all accounts. A moderately well-fixed farmer. Spite of the fact that he had made many friends he continued live alone on the farm. Doing all the work about the house. He maintained on his own never married and lived as a recluse avoiding contact with neighbors and only going out for business purposes to nearby larimore north dakota to hire farmhands to maintain his form during the summer months when he needed more help us right he would instantly hit. He needed some hip he. He would eventually emassy healthy fortune during his time. His home at the time was valued at approximately fifty thousand dollars which is one point. Four million dollars. Twenty twenty mass. He owned considerable amounts of land in grand forks county and after his death was found. How six thousand dollars in cash in his small house equivalent to one hundred. Seventy five thousand dollars in twenty twenty money in his house. Lehner eighteen six grand in eighteen. Eighty yeah actually He died in nineteen. Oh thirteen yeah. Bill still alive still from nineteen thirteen just over two years later. Six thousand dollars would have been a hundred seventy five thousand dollars. Ooh yeah. It was immediately following the move to north dakota that butler was noticed to have changed considerably and began showing signs of mental illness including suffering from whose nations and thinking that invisible people were chasing him but refused to let anyone take his photo because he thought he would steal his soul and he would die now. He's not the first person to think that the no he's not there are allowed people back. There's about you did that. You take their soul. I mean there are some religions. I think that yeah. But he's one individual in in need. That's why everybody knows. All west photos never smiled. That's because he took too long tailed. Life took masao. He would also wake up in the middle of the night prowling his land. In perusing is home convinced. Someone was trying to break in or trespass now if he had that much money in his house. Yeah that's a cause or paranoia. Anybody knew about it but see that. That's kind of a thought. Because he said that he he tried to you know he meant to be a recluse he brother went to town so you think he would have told a lot of people about it but being in town he may have casually mentioned it. Got six thousand dollars a muffler board. Yeah and so she gets back home. He's like crap. When i say that they're going come steal it. Yeah those who are familiar with this case state that he lost his mind through his hermit habits. It's hard to say her habits trip. You they are trying to stop that. He gradually became worse and was taken before an insanity board and at some point in nineteen o six butlers mental illness reached its peak and that is when he began to ride his horse at night at breakneck speed about the country and yelling the top of his lungs when he was yelling. I don't know while. Check in bars star be. They took my shoes. Oh man at that point. He was committed to the north dakota state hospital in jamestown in place under the supervision of dr w m hotchkiss hotchkiss for the next seven years. Butler would continue to have hallucinations and paranoia. Though he would live out his final years in relative peace from talking to the staff about men who would come into his home during the night and forced him to get dressed and take him on long walks or horseback rides for no reason to his fears about invisible figures that he claimed were chasing after him according to one of his doctors. Dr awa guest in quote. Mr butler was a man small stature. Very gallant and fond of attending the hospital dances even falling desperately in love with one of the female physicians. Wait a minute. What about the recluse stuff. What do you mean. Well well at this point. He's i mean you can't be reckless when you're in a hospital can point the whole florence nightingale. Exactly yeah actually. That's in the reverse though these following would with her. she may not want nothing to do with his. so there are another condition. there's there's a florence nightingale word.

We're going to get into the state of north dakota north dakota one state in the union. I don't have any stories all. Because i never been there. That's it podcast is done through. Gotta night there yeah man. I haven't been there yet. Yeah i mean how the closest i got was you know of course south dakota and mapped it when i was about rushmore. I think i'd explain this episode. Yeah and i never got that far because it was like three hundred and forty eight miles drive that far just to get a refrigerator magnet. Not doing that's you know. Probably just buy one online and say you went there. you know. it's not to say no it's not. I'm gonna earn that. Shit on the north dakota mon gear north dakota. I did find out one interesting fact. Two times in history. They the state petitioned to change. Your name from north dakota to just dakota really. Yeah and both times was denied. No you're north. What'd you gotta do is convince out. Go to the drop their first name and just combined states and have a big state. Yeah would be good sized lot of empty space. Yeah tons but it's gorgeous about north dakota myself either. Just in general i mean. I don't know what's up there with north. Yeah just knows north and even go that is. I don't even know where it's is it near the canadian border. It is right on the canadian okay. That's what i was thinking about. Smack dab in the middle of the back of the us okay across the back and yes. It is right on the border. Because it's a long. They would like a idaho stuff which touches the border. Two years ago. I went on a forty seven hundred mile road trip and i didn't even get you close. You couldn't go on the x three hundred mosques. Make it a five thousand mile road trip. It wasn't in the cards. Oh but that's all right but you over the next year. Yeah yes the whole group has to say are goes group young couple of argos group people's on a road trip or when you go on a trip with people with a group have a consensus. Yes we're going to do that if not you're not doing it. I told them this is how it is I've rented the car okay. The car's going there here here here and here it climb in. I'm going whether you like it or not. I paid for the car gas everything so and then they gave gas money and stuff like that helped out. But i took care of the car because i was going to go anyway because like three hundred dollars a four hour trip. So that's that's a long way to like you said for magnet. Yes that makes sense. Yeah so unfortunately. I had to pass but that gives me another mission list right. I mean have been the canada to north dakota. How many states do you think you have not been to one. Just don't go to jail. And then you gotta go make a whole week of being just in north dakota yeah. Yeah and then after two days. I've seen literally everything in north dakota. So we'll do other style candida. Yup yeah i do need to make a decent visit to alaska. Because the one i did make was a joke. It was like on a ferry boat thing out of washington. You even get in on onto canadian land or you stay on the boat though. No no canadian passport. You get off the boat now have to have it or you can just sit. You can sit on the boat. You know canadian. Look i you know he did canadian. Light up your foot off the ramp and touch the dirt and and drag you. Sirens go off. Yup here comes deadly. Do right at american on our soil.
A record year for wind turbine shipments through Duluth
"Record year for wind. Turbine shipments in duluth. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul kutner with climate cavs. Here's a story about climate change solutions and economic prosperity. Twenty twenty was a record year. for winter. shipments through duluth harbor ships carried more than half a million tons of wind blades and towers into the harbor this year that means jobs for port workers in duluth for truckers who drive the giant blades across minnesota and for wind energy technicians building the giant swirling turbans on the prairie pater mavis is the western regional policy manager for the clean grid alliance. Hi peter welcome to climate cast. Paul what are the big wind. Power projects underway now. And what's coming in the next few years so The last couple of years have been very good for development. Economics is the driver here and utilities. Want the stuff commercial industrial customers. Want this stuff. And saint received very robust construction in north dakota south dakota minnesota in iowa currently there's about thirty seven hundred megawatts of projects under construction in these four states. And that's you know you're you're looking at over a thousand turbans just to fulfill that full of projects talked to us about jobs. What are the trend. Lines for employment in clean energy in the upper midwest. Well as we see more projects come online. There's a lot more for operation and maintenance. Jobs is actually somewhat of a deficit. And it's very difficult to find people affiliates positions and so a lot of universities other tech schools in the companies are doing things they can to try and get more people into this field and these are good well paying middle class jobs and i think the most important piece in that all set for rural jobs. And it's oftentimes. It's very difficult to find jobs in the rural parts of our state since so. This is an excellent addition to the row community. I know there are now some days where minnesota has enough generating capacity from win to produce a hundred percent of electricity from wind and solar. What are the trends like there. Well if you look at the region as a whole Minnesota and the upper midwest as part of the independent system operator which fifteen state organization that manages the ball transmission system and it creates efficiencies. So that you can move power across the entire central part of Country and you know because of the wind resources. So good in. North dakota south dakota iowa we could use just a ton of wind and move that you know states and to other states in the region that don't have as much visibility of when peter. What's the state of battery storage technology for wind and solar. How quickly as that technology advancing on its advancing quite rapidly. Great river energy just announced as part of their portfolio changed very large battery storage system in minnesota. There's gonna be some time before we can really scale up battery storage. In addition to the price point that can make it attractive for utilities. How fast has clean energy progressed in minnesota in the upper midwest. And what's the future. Look like well. If you think about a decade ago wind energy was just really kind of getting off the ground and states. Were starting to take initiatives to move that direction if you look now. I mean state of iowa. Forty percent of all their generation comes from win minnesota's at about nineteen percent self dakota's at twenty four four percent. North dakota generates about twenty seven percent. So we've seen very robust growth. We expect that to continue.
Should the Patriots replace Cam Newton with Jarrett Stidham?
"Think this is where we need to start because it's where everybody is starting when we talk about the Patriots and where we're at with Cam Newton right now in terms of the Patriots quarterback of the here-and-now home and also maybe even looking Beyond here and now to the 2021 season even and here in New England you turn on Boston sports radio, and I'm not trying to pick on those guys, but there are definitely talking a lot about Jarrett Stidham and the possibility of benching Cam Newton for Jarrett Stidham. I think they're crazy. But that that's a topic for another day. Mostly I want to focus on what are your opinions right knee about how cam is playing and how he can obviously improve from objectively. What was a very bad game on Sunday against the Cardinals whether you're a chemist and or a cam hater. Yeah, and it wasn't dead. A game against Arizona and Arizona. First of all, I think you have to remember that Arizona's defense is a lot different than Houston's defense. It's a lot different than Seattle's defense back in week to that Houston game. That's you know game those were two games with Jim actually got the passing game going and you felt hey maybe they could put together a passing game that could actually be effective Arizona see on their athletic. They fly all over the place Isaiah Simmons budda Baker. Like they have guys that can play they have some different things and they certainly they were putting an egg nine guys in the box of times. I'm sure having you saw that as well. I know you have from some of the work you've done they were basically dare in New England like go ahead. S game by throwing the football and it looked like they couldn't, you know, they got a couple breaks at the end with a missed field-goal and Isaiah Simmons penalty then put them in position to win, but they didn't win that game because of the passing game, but you know, that often said, I think we all have to sort of take a step back and realize a couple of things one. You mentioned I studied quarterbacks. Each week at USA Today. I have to do what we call a QB camp where I put up five of my quarterback videos of the most notable quarterback performances. There are some weeks friends. It's hard to find five good quarterback package, which is league-wide It's just tough. This is one of those weeks like you might get Baker Mayfield than that because there's just not great quarterback players Patriots fans were spoiled from two decades of Tom Brady where we took the best at the quarterback position weekend and week out but then when you take a step back and you don't have that and you see guys like, you know, Derek Carr and his high variance play or Baker Mayfield in his high variance player. Look at Carson waves, I mean talk about somebody that's regressed. He's regressed all the way back to his senior year at North Dakota State quarterback plays tough. And right now we have a quarterback. That's high variance. Well, that's one thing. I think we need to remember the other is this he came in late in a strange year in the midst of a pandemic with no training camp more minimal training camp. No minicamps. No OTAs, no prestige. James be tough complicated offense to run that has so many different moving parts. You've read The Playbook, you know, Evan every road has like six different variations. I'm trying to do is hard. There are some play books that are easy. It's like oh, yes, this makes sense Bruce Arians Playbook. It's kind of easy. Nothing really changes Josh McDaniels doing the Patriots Playbook. It's like quantum physics for me. Like I I can't figure it out. And so to try to do that in the midst of all this is difficult. So with that context, I think you know, if you want to get into the home Jared versus cam debate. I don't really think there is one because as you pointed out this week on Twitter Bill Belichick has seen Jarrett Stidham now for almost two years. He's seen him every day in practice if Jake was going to be the answer to what fixed to what else is Patriots passing game. Yes, he would play him but he's not so that tells you what you need to know about Jackson them. I was on Jarrett Stidham home. Right before they signed Camp. I remember I wrote the peace and said look Jack said it was a planet quarterback everybody and I'm so glad I snuck in at the ad. Well, look if they could get can do it for cheap short not be great. But Jarod said it was a planet like two weeks later. I signed Cam Newton Cam right now gives them the best chance to win games. Is it through the passing game most weeks? Probably not, you know this week might be a get right opportunity. But if I you know, if for the 2021 season, I still think canvas done enough to earn the chance to win this job with a full complement of training camp preseason, all that stuff of the engine needs to get better at Short of the mechanics break. Absolutely not do they matter. Sometimes they actually do but right now he's the best shot they've got week in and week out to win games.

Welcome Catherine thank you so much for having me here today. Well and as we as we are here at the Ford Center in February of Twenty Twenty. I want just recognize this moment. By giving you a medallion because yesterday was a big day for you. This is so cool. Thank you so much. How many numbers? So this is my eighteen. Sit My year eighteen of sobriety so my eighteenth sobriety birthday today yesterday. Actually so thank you. So much for this amazing medallion. I'm so grateful and that's thoughtful of you. Who team years ago. What what what. What was your bottom eighteen years ago. My bottom was you know not being able to look at myself in the Mirror. Complete loss of of self respect And I you know Decided I needed to make a change and And I was able to do that. Eighteen years ago and walk this path of recovery sobriety. I'm so grateful. How did you know that you have a problem? What what was that moment? That said I'm not doing this the right way. Well I could achieve almost any goal. I'd set for myself in my life but I could not stop drinking. You know no matter how many drunk episodes I would have or struggles or you know mornings Hong over I just. I just not stop drinking. And so that's how I knew. I knew I needed help. And I knew I needed to really make a change in my life And did you seek treatment or just walk into a recovery path? I went down a record both actually I. I did go to treatment but I also Went down the recovery path and found like minded people that I could take this journey with. And you've been on that journey for a long time but one of the fascinating dynamics of your recovery journey which. I'm sure you hadn't really anticipated back when you started at eighteen years ago. Was that Five years ago or so. Your husband was elected. The Governor of North Dakota. That's right that makes you diverse lady of North Dakota the First Lady of North Dakota and so there you are suddenly very public persona in the state of North Dakota and not long after that nationally but very quickly Catherine you recognize the unique opportunity you had to have the public platform and a personal experience and to combine that personal story with public advocacy. Talk about that for our audience. Well early on in my time as first lady Spent time trying to decide you know what would I do? What could I be really passionate about and you know? It didn't take me long like a hot second to decide you. You know because of my own recovery. I you know this was the path I needed to go down especially related to eliminating the stigma of addiction. And you know what I heard you speak a few months before that and you said the best way to eliminate the stigma of addiction is to just talk about very simple solution and I basically took up that idea and made it part of my platform. And that's what I'm doing and so early in my time first lady. I did an interview with the newspaper and You know they just wanted to get to know the first lady and five minutes for the interview. I told my husband. I was going to talk about my recovery which I had not done really publicly for fifteen years at that point. And how did that go that day? When you sat down with the reporter and really revealed the essence of who you are How did that go? It was a huge weight. Lifted off my shoulders. Yes you know because I have a disease you know I figured out. I have a brain disease and I shouldn't have to carry this burden on my shoulders of keeping keeping silent about it. You know but the stigma is what kept me there for most of my recovery and kept me from seeking treatment And getting help for over twenty years so It was such a huge relief to really be able to talk about it and You know my husband was super supportive. Rooney Talk Oh yeah. He's he's very supportive and he believes that the more we talk about it to more. We're able to eliminate the

Y. and Z. I think three things after he's president and more each time quickly wrist replied yes yes very calm yes all right in my mind went straight to all he is saying yes to is the fact that he can be indicted for anything after he I took the post yes I do I took that as a hypothetical and to back up the back up that I took it as a hypothetical he has never convinced anybody that there's obstruct while he's convinced Democrats but they did you know I convincing but there is no evidence of obstruction of justice so you know he is so I that's why I took it as a hypothetical from him because it sounded like a hypothetical so yeah I would I wasn't directly asked do you recommend that he be indicted all right what do you think yeah exactly and and believe me you've got to parse every single word in it but because if you're talk if you're talking about this in a in a legal sense which again what they're trying to say I don't peach man is not a legal process of the political process but to get there what they're trying to say is a Donald Trump committed a criminal act that is you know that's when you get into the legal terms here which is why the Republicans seem to spend a lot of time for example on collusion versus conspiracy and all that because it seems as if Mahler is trying to not never get two specific but just to generally put out that on brawl that trump might have committed a criminal act but we're not going to get into the discussion the minutia of the legalese of whether he did or not well you can't do that as a prosecutor that's ridiculous either either the evidence was there the evidence is yeah one thing I would would have wished a Republican gonna Aston as a follow up is good Bill Clinton be indicted for X. Y. or Z. eight yes because he's no longer president I'm well Obama I don't well you first have to ask the question are we talking about can this per as you said earlier thank you you know would you indict this president after words are you talking in a hypothetical and of course that was that was never asked thanks so much appreciated eight six six ninety right I we go to Daryn in New Mexico Derren welcome your and read I radio welcome to the show high Derren Hey are you don it's great show as always thanks yeah I just wanted to I just wanted to bring up but I think it's a really good point it was noted on how old Mullard contradicted himself okay and then there was plenty of times that he alluded to that was not within this purview right well you know I if you were a call way back when it when all this started before Mahler was even appointed as special prosecutor it so much Republicans run the Senate Democrats also wondering whether there was collusion and now I remember that day we kept saying they were going to appoint a special prosecutor and he was gonna be unencumbered to go where ever criminality that let him and actually shows with manic or that he did that yes and so I don't understand how he keeps alluding to not within his purview when it was well reported well throughout the media that he was not gonna have any hang ups in any direction that he where he was going to have a wide range of variety to go anywhere that he saw a bit where criminality which was coming up on his investigation right and that was a member there you know yeah well yeah because that was part of the edict that he was given by the the the justice department that he was to look for collusion from the trump campaign and any possible crimes that came as a result of that investigation so yeah we were we remember it the fact that he says like I said the fact that he did because you're referring I'm sure to that last audio card where he said will that happen before me and we didn't go back we did with manta for I just sat there and looked and this relates directly to the this relates to directly to the allegation of collusion which everything came from the dossier and that's why we've cited for the last year if he doesn't go down the road of the dossier if he doesn't do that then you know he's this was a political investigation and not a criminal justice investigation exactly innocent at all click to kill your that he says it was selected its purview although he was allowed to go in and slated to go anywhere they wanted to and then now that he has done this testimony tied in what was he the the pace of the investigation I want to really run by these Democrats behind that they didn't they didn't take out any of the criminality that was going on yeah absolutely just out of time eight six six ninety right I it's time for your national forecast monsoon moisture will produce a marginal threat for flash flooding in the four corners region over the next several days we have gradual keep.

"Available in North Dakota. Eight six six ninety redeye you know, the one thing when when Romney yesterday attempting to defend himself saying that the country is more divided than ever ever under under Trump tests, as you said in needs to be made clear again that reason is not because of Trump. No, Trump was elected because that divide existed and one side of that divide believed that their political party was not fighting hard enough for their interests end of story that Trump is a result of a divided nation. Not the cause of the divided nation. We are divided because we have. Extreme differences in philosophy with the other side as to how to run the country and how the country should be run. Right. And that's where Romney is dead wrong. And there's nothing wrong about being a divided nation. Saint a divided nation is Ron now. It's reality. Well, when you look at it too. If if you're gonna lay down like a Romney would do and then just play nice. What happens well policies like sanctuary state policies policies that have in that same state that say you can spend a year in jail for using the wrong pronoun, those types of policies become the norm because you start saying things like, well, we need to consider people's feelings and be nice. No, we need to tell the truth. Think matters. It's the only thing that matters a ton of people don't wanna hear the truth. No, they don't. And when you don't wanna hear the truth, and some people want the truth, you're going to have a divided nation that you're going to have a divided society because of that. And there's nothing wrong with a divided society. Why it's the reality of human nature. Right. They're all over the planet, by the way. Yeah..

"The spirit lake tribe the standing rock, Sioux tribe, and the three affiliated tribes and forgive me if I get the pronunciation wrong here, it's the mundane, hit data and our carnation they say, we stand United against North Dakota's suppressive voter, ID law together with tribal advocates, the native American rights fund four directions, western native voice in native vote. We are fighting back. We believe the requirement of a physical residential property with the street address wasn't tended to disenfranchise native American voters to combat the disenfranchisement of our members. We intend to ensure our members that lack residential street addresses can obtain them so they may exercise their right to vote. Tribes are now able to issue tribal documents that contain the voters, name birthdate and current residential street address in North Dakota. We intend to issue. These documents at polling locations within the bounds of our reservations on election day, we encourage all tribal people to come out to vote on November. Sixth, even if you do not have a qualifying ID, we will not be silenced by the blatant attempts to rob people of our voice. So I think this is exclusive night where breaking this news tonight. We just got this statement from the tribes. But what this means is that the native American tribal governments in North Dakota, which very well could be the difference between a Republican held Senate or a democratic held Senate, right and everything that that entails. It could absolutely be the difference in terms of what happens with that crucial Senate race in North Dakota. And that's why Republicans made this change tonight. In the statement, the native American tribes in North Dakota are saying what the Republicans are trying to demand of them with these ID's. The tribes are not doing it. They intend to vote with documents that they will provide to their own people at polling locations on the reservations on voting day, they will provide tribal voting letters and as tribes as sovereign nations, they will say that that is the kind of idea you need to vote. They will do it right then and there. We have been trying all day and into the evening to get an answer from the Republican secretary of state's office in North Dakota as to whether or not the state is actually going to count these votes whether or not they are going to let members of native American tribes North Dakota vote in this way. So far the answer they have given us and that they are sticking by I kid you not so far. Their answer is probably..
