How outcome of Georgia Senate runoffs could affect Biden's agenda
"Begin in Georgia, where results from the Senate runoff elections are continuing to come in. Democrats are set to claim another seat with Raphael Warnock projected to defeat Republican Kelly Leffler. Warnock addressed his supporters overnight. We prove that with hope Hard work and the people by our side. Anything is possible. With 98% of precincts reporting, Warnock has claimed 50.6% of the vote. But Lefler has yet to concede. This is a game of inches. We're gonna win this election. We're gonna save this country. War Knocks. Victory ends more than 30 year losing streak for Democrats in statewide run offs It also leaves control of the Senate. Up to the state's other runoff between Republican David Perdue and Democrat John Also off the contest remains tight, with all soft ahead by about 13,000 votes. Gabriel Sterling is Georgia's voting system implementation manager. There's a potential where some of these elections could be within a half a point, So the second place finisher will have the opportunity to potentially ask for a recount again. So I've currently has 50.1% of the vote. Well, Purdue, is it 49.9%. Some absentee votes have yet to be counted. And as many as 17,000 military and overseas ballots are due by Friday. President Elect Joe Biden's agenda hinges on the outcome. Jeannie's A No, is a Bloomberg News contributor and professor of political science at Iona College. All the things that you know Biden has talked about wanting to do. I'm not suggesting he'd be able to do all of them, but certainly you two have a lot better shot. If you have a Chuck Schumer controlling that gavel versus a Mitch McConnell. But even if Democrats do take the Senate, the majority remains small. More on that from Bloomberg News contributor and former McCain campaign manager Rick Davis. Just because you have the majority and you can set the agenda doesn't mean you get your gender past and their big, close sentence, close houses. It's only a 10 vote margin in the House of Representatives that Speaker Pelosi has so any given issue is going to have defections with levelers loss, Republicans must hold on to produce Senate seat to keep their hold on the chamber, though it may take days to determine the final outcome of that race.

I don't stand for this and i deserve more and had not done that. Carryanne might not have felt the need to like explain why she was hard on you. Whatever it was. But i didn't see that because honestly going back to the girl that was sitting there are chair. That was like a quiet and poised in the beginning. If we saw that through the competition. I don't know if you would have lasted. I don't wanna see the perfect dancer. Ripe wanna see the person that is like enraged or offended or needing a breakout cage like literally did and and for me.

It just adds all this sound all the wraps all the lyrics all the everything you know what i mean notes so interesting as you're saying this i'm i'm thinking about my experience on the show and i think with so weird is that's how i was as the bachelorette i was so quirky. I was so edgy. I'll talk about whatever i was like. This person who i was myself i was myself. I was -pletely. Be myself on dancing with the stars. I felt like i was holding back on my personality on. Like who i really was because dancing is such an insecurity of mine and it was something that like. I'm like working through this right now. Just hearing you talk about this. Because i'm like i really. It was something that i struggled with it. I always wanted to be the perfect dancer. And i worried so much about that that. I think that that's why failed as a dancer back in my day was because i was just focusing so much on the technique and just wanting to be a perfect dancer and i. I held back on everything else. And that was my breakthrough on the show and in just like general was forgetting that in. Not letting that hold me back anymore. And having that breakthrough moment and it's just so interesting to think about how we really wasn't Everyone was like oh my gosh. Who would have thought. Caitlyn's acting like little america's sweetheart over there and it's just so not me. I'm like the canadian edgy. Not girl next door and so it was all mad. That's crazy that is crazy.

I got i got your size in your edge so you you dealt with a little bit of a metamorphosis and a realization by yourself to yeah oh fully and i do think that's why when i say artem was so hard on me. I think it was in a great way. Like there were times rows like he hates me and sure of even like him because but it was it was all from a place of like i think he cared and i think he saw my potential and i think he was like saw me holding myself back and i was comparing myself to the professional dancers and i was like why might not like that. He's like because you're not give. Professional bands are brandon. Isn't that funny when they would check us. Like you know that you are here and we're here right. Does our pro dancers go.

Trump-Kemp Dispute Creates Rift Within Georgia GOP as Runoff Elections Nears
"You might need to win an election is a unified message. But Republican unity is hard to come by in the state of Georgia. Right now, President Trump has called Governor Brian Camp a fool and a clown for refusing to overturn President elect Joe Biden's victory there. Kemp says intervening in the election would be illegal and pressure over that dispute is creating a rift within the state's Republican Party just three weeks before runoff elections that will determine control of the Senate from member station to be Abie in Atlanta ever hurt reports Earlier this month, Governor Brian Kemp gave a press conference at the state Capitol about George's plan to distribute the Corona virus vaccine. Well, good afternoon, everyone. First of all, let me thank you for joining us today. Also, the elephant in the room is politics and on the Facebook Live comments. It's center stage. This man has turned his back on his Republican Party, writes one Georgian Can't believe I voted for you. Camp sellout, says another. And don't bother to run again. You're finished. Needless to say, Georgia Republicans are divided right now. Some lawmakers air calling to override the governor and back the president by demanding a special session of the Legislature. We're here in Athens today, Bert Jones with US And bring the beach part of the gang of four, putting out a petition demanding a special session. They're trying to go around the governor they need to Republican State Senators, Jones and Beach were on the John Fredericks Show and National Pro Trump Radio program. Last week, they alleged large scale voter fraud, which Republican election officials have said didn't happen. Here's beach and I can tell you if we do not fix this, and that's why I'm so adamant about this. I'm so fearful. That we're gonna wake up January 6, and we're not gonna like what happened because it's not going to be a fair election. Beach and Jones are responding to pressure from their pro trump constituents like those tearing camp apart on the Internet and calling in on this show, Let's get to the phone lines. Where we have Caroline from Sandy Springs carry these senators, some say, are ready to break the law to back President Trump. But Caroline wants them to know it's still not enough. We are mad on being very nice right now. We need you to step up into your part. We need you to stand up for us. Now. The pressure is so fierce on Republican state lawmakers, it was difficult to find someone willing to speak on the record for this story. They're worried about being targeted. But one did. My name was Chuck Martin represented 49th district up in North Fulton County. Martin is a longtime Republican. He spent 18 years in the General Assembly and wishes President Trump won the election. But he liked the governor doesn't believe the Constitution allows the Legislature to intervene That hasn't stopped tens of thousands of emails from flowing in. I'm getting an email that says, Stand true to your oath of office do this. But standing true to my oath of office doesn't allow me to do that. It's been the most frustrating moment in his public service career, he says, because some people have been completely convinced by misinformation. Like one retired army colonel who is pushing for the election to be overturned. Martin responded with language from the state Constitution, saying, Please explain how I can legally do what you're asking me to do. And instead from him, I get no How instead you know, he calls me a coward. A traitor. You know somebody that won't stand up to my oath of office. That's frustrating to me. I mean, I take this job seriously. President Trump is creating a rift in the Republican Party at a very inopportune time, says Charles Bullock, a political scientist at the University of Georgia as we saw in November of this year The Republican Party doesn't have AH, large commanding lead within Georgia, It is rarely close. It could be the kind of division it opens the door for Democrats to do very well in 2022. Jeannie Bradley is a Republican voter from helps about in Eastern Georgia. She was at a Mike Pence rally this month. And she's just confused because of the mixed messages about the election and about her Republican leaders. But we need to know more. You know, you're getting bits and pieces from all of the news media. You don't know. What to believe anymore, And it's just not the news media. It's people you know. In general, Republicans will still have her vote. But there are other people, she says, who may throw up their hands in this chaos, vote democratic or skip the election. And if Republicans lose the run offs, the big divisions that have emerged since November will likely only intensify in the GOP for NPR news. I'm Emma hurt in Atlanta
Flight attendant warns US travelers NOT to take vouchers if they get bumped from a full flight
"Flight attendant has warned travelers in the U. S not to take vouchers if there ever involuntarily bumped from a full flight because they're entitled to cold. Hard cash. Really, yes. Sandra Jeannie Kwan spent 2.5 years working as a flight attendant for Emirates Airlines and learned quite a few tricks and airline secrets on the job, which she generously shares with her tic tac followers. Oh, I have to look her up now. I will not play the TIC Tac video because I do not condone China on the speed round is my portion of the show. But she says quote. Not only are the airlines required to find you an alternative flight, but depending on the length of the delay, you are entitled to cash Hmm. Okay, so Okay, Here's never. I have never taken a voucher really know, because I'm one of those people that when I travel, I very specifically have to get to where I have to get to. It's not like I'm just regionally traveling. And I'm like, got flexible plans. You know what I mean? Well, but if they tell your delayed what do you Or the options? Well, usually when they're offering a voucher there, it's because they've overbooked or something like that. And they're taking volunteers. You know, I mean, all right, so here's some information this broad claims. If your delay after being bumped from any flight is under an hour. There's no cash entitlement. Okay, If the delay before you re book domestic flight is with it is 1 to 2 hours. You're entitled to 200% of your one way fare for a maximum cash payout of $675. But that, But that means you're giving up your flight, right? No in voluntarily. It says in voluntarily just to delay. So do you. I mean, if you if you have a delay, and then you still go on the flight, can you then file a claim? Even after that? I don't know. That's why don't fly. I have this issue, not not a problem for me, but because that would be that would be something like if you actually you got. You know you got like a four hour, six hour delay because I've had it before I was stuck in the Charlotte airport for 16 hours. And it was the worst. It was absolute worse and I didn't get anything out of that. You know how my trips work? In my car start
Daisy Christodoulou's Teachers vs. Tech: A Book Review
"Organized this time and we did some recording off alba crabs. So what you're gonna. Fistful is an overview of this book by our lovely doctor judith. Name she's looking at the usa technology within education. She starts off by looking at how we learn so is a strong focus on the the. She calls it the science learning to start with so cognitive science in order to probably to understand how technology can support that learning. So she's fundamentally she's got this how we learn as the foundation of all and then she looks at various aspects of of Technology jay and this the second chapter is she talks about personalized learning and how what personalized learning means and an how realistic it is and she looks at things. Like smart devices says well on on how we we use. Small device says Within education and there is a sort of message that came across to me the technology. And you probably wouldn't be surprised that technology has potential within education. But it doesn't live up to the promise so fall of water offers that we've constantly been offered certain amounts of promise so she uses the example. She uses clinton a an easy example of interactive whiteboards. And says you know these. These was huge investments. And they were going to be the next wonderful thing and it didn't come off and she sorta looks at that. So it's i found an interesting look. made me think about technology and how we use technology okay. So we've got a bit of an overview there and sort of angle that daisy christie has taken with this burke. You've already given us a little bit of an insight. Tom but what were you kind of top takeaway as or what was your kind of instinct to feeling. After you've finished reading this book. I remember being quite infused by i was. I felt that. Obviously it's a very very topical question at the moment. The question of education technology. It's been topical for awhile. It's suddenly became relevant to absolutely everybody. Once we went in went into covid nineteen lockdown and to some extent. I suppose the the tech jeannie has been popped out of the bottle very very quickly. You know we've all ended up having to do some sort of online teaching the question's been hanging over the education world for years and years now you know. To what extent can we or should we as teachers replace. Bits of what we do with technology and you have some people who are very very pro technology. You know we'll we'll tend to use it if it's there perhaps a little be uncritically. You get some people of course in the other way you get people basically saying i'm not having any devices i in my room. Thank you very much. And i think my initial concerns were that coming from an author who is very much seen as on the traditional stand of things and spent a whole chapter seven myths kind of trying to explode this myth that teaches all. Believe that the kids. Just googling things now and can get on with having loads of fun instead of learning facts and all of that that we were going to get something very antitax ashley. Although i knew she was running attack company i thought we were going to get you know whole chapters away we we should be not touching devices that kind of thing so i think the two things i liked the most on a sort of broad brush basis with fat that she is balanced in setting out these arguments. She does kind of you know. Try to lay out her own biases and things. Like that. And i also felt that her has summaries although i do i always twitch when people reducing down to little summaries inboxes. The summaries were pretty good and pretty balanced. Actually if you are in such a hurry that you toady mortar reader. Relatively short chapter yes with my to at the end of each chapter she crunched everything dominant inside the size into into a summary. Which we're gonna use throughout this episode just as talking points and again you nine go and delve a bit deeper into that chapter. He wants to read a little bit more.
Opinion: Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James is worth more than $85m
"Have had a really short offseason right? Like their last their season ended. On October 11th. And their first preseason game is December 11th. So we're talking about two months. Roughly half of one and normal offseason is for a finals champ. Not for any other team, but for a finals champ. They're getting half the time they normally would. But Rob Pelinka has been busy as hell. They brought in the sixth Man of the year. Montrose Harold they brought in the sixth Man of the year runner up Dennis Schroder. Brought in Marcus all they brought in Wesley Matthews. They re signed KCP. They re signed Marquis of Morris. And then, in the last 24 hours, they made the moves that everybody was expecting. First, there was the news that LeBron had agreed to a two year extension with the Lakers, then the news. And Anthony Davis had agreed to a five year extension with the Lakers. And both were expected. But for any Laker fan freaking out and sweating that either LeBron or a D would leave, rest assured, that's not happening. Nor should it like, Why would they? Why would they? They just want to ring. They've got a really good look at another. In fact, I make the argument that this year's roster is better than last year's roster. Now That doesn't mean they're gonna win again. But all you can ask for this point. Is a chance and they've got a damn good chance. In fact, they've got better better than a damn good chance the deals with LeBron and 80 or not a surprise. But they are interesting as an example that two year extension that LeBron reportedly agreed to is going to run through the end of the 2023 season and reportedly is worth 85 mil. Some of you might be thinking 85 mil. For two years to turn a cash, especially for a guy who's got that many miles on him. Who me? Especially for a guy who's gonna turn 36 later this month. In this case to me, 85 mil. It's not too much. In fact, it's not even close to too much. In fact, I'm gonna argue that LeBron is worth a hell of a lot more than 85 mil. I'm gonna argue. LeBron is worth double that amount of money, if not more, and again, that's not hyperbole. That's not exaggeration. Look where the Lakers were before LeBron arrived. They had been in the post season in years. They were a complete and total mess. Then he shows up and leaves them tow a ring in a second season. You can't put a price tag on that. How much money is that worth? You can't put a price tag on a moment like this. During the trophy presentation, Jeannie. I told Jenny when I came here that I was gonna put this franchise back in the position where it belongs. Her late. Great father did it for so many years and she just took it on after that, and For me to be a part of such a historical franchises. It's unbelievable feeling not only for myself, but for my teammates for the organization for the coaches for the trainers, everybody that's here. We just want our respect. Robinson's respect Coach Vogel Warner's respect. Organization. What they respect Laker nation won't they respect and I want my damn respect to if you don't think that's worth 85 mil. Then you don't understand business, their business that brand their pride that legacy. I mean, you could pass that hat among Laker fans and come up with way more than 85 mil.

‘The Real’ host Jeannie Mai exits ‘Dancing With the Stars’ due to health scare
"The really I love her so much. She has just this really, really great energy. And recently, you know, she's one of the stars on dancing with the stars. Not not normally. I don't watch the show, but I do watch it for her because I really like her. But we've got to send her some well wishes get a really, really scary situation. This one I feel like people should hear about because this could potentially happen to them in some sort of way. So basically, Jeannie has to quit dancing with the stars because she had to be rushed into emergency surgery, and it all started off. With this sore throat. And no, this has nothing to do with Cove it she just had a sore throat. And I guess they kind of got you know it heard enough for her to go to the doctor and to see what was going on. After the doctor examined her. He realized that she had a huge, dangerous infection in her throat. It had already closed 60% of her airway big. They said that this was potentially life threatening and that she had to have emergency surgery and had she waited a few days. This could've gone really bad. Her. That's scary, especially when it's something as simple as a sore throat, and especially right now to you and you know, and it's a good thing. She went to go get it checked out, but you could tell she probably thought it a pass. Because if it was like a 60% blockade, you know you kind of think like, Oh, it's just a sort throwed out. Drink something hide. I'll nurse it a little bit, but being that it was life threatening and it could have completely closed up on our you know when they say life threatening and death That's very Siri's. Very serious, but you know she's feeling better. She is he. She came out of emergency surgery. She's going to be healing up. But I do feel bad that she has to quit dancing with the stars.

Election Day 2020: Rick Davis
"Joining us live is Bloomberg's Rick Davis, partner at Stone Court Capital has run a good number of campaigns, including John McCain's 2008 Rick Again. Thank you so much for joining us. My pleasure. Yeah, The Democrats seem focused on Pennsylvania Joe Biden yesterday back again today, Camilla Harris today saying it be decided they're Biden claims it's his first home. Polling has been good. But now the NBC Marist poll today shows it tightening. Where does this stand? Well, it's on the horse race side. You can't tell, but it's been a very stable election. Even in Pennsylvania, Biden held the lead anywhere from 4 to 10 points, depending on which poll and at what point in this campaign. But that's the nature of this campaign is so unusual is how little has really changed lately. I mean, when you were tracking polls and you're only you know, seeing Ah pointer to tightening or loosening in the course of an election. It shows you a very stable electric. In other words, people have made up their minds and we've seen in the last month. People are voting in record numbers during these early votes, And so my guess is Pennsylvania. I would say. Friends toward Biden because he's never been behind in any public or private survey I've seen, but you know, we're see what happens on Election Day. Yeah, Also Florida I mean, for the most part of Florida Early on, and who knows early eyes? It goes for for Biden. They're saying that it's over. Yeah. If Florida goes for Biden, there's really no way for Donald Trump. To find a path to victory mean Biden start with some of the Trump states that he won before pretty much in Hiss. Calm. Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin. These are all states that Biden is right now tracking an almost 10 in some cases, 12 points. So you take those states away from Donald Trump. And he can't afford to lose those Bay States and the biggest one that he Has in play 29 electoral votes is Florida now have the two things have the pollsters learned anything since 2016 number one and have the Democrats learned anything since 2016 I'll take the last one. First. What the Democrats learned is that they needed to pick their spots as to where they need to win in orderto get the necessary electoral votes and And Hillary Clinton's campaign spread themselves all over states that were completely unnecessary. They had people in Arizona and other places the week before the election thinking we're going to turn Red States blue. What? What Joe Biden has shown is the discipline to park himself. As you said earlier in Pennsylvania, every surrogate he has in the country was in there today. And he's planted a flag. If I win Pennsylvania, I win the presidency and I'm fighting here. And he has Ah, just in just in the past hour in campaigning, talking to young talking to students, saying that they that they are the key. I mean, the Democrats have needed, you know, asking that question to motivate young voters. Michelle Obama's been beating this drum now since Since 2016 the young have to be showing up. Are we seeing that they will Yeah, There are record turnouts bank on Which state you're talking about in Pennsylvania is one of them where under 25 8. Voters are starting to show up in much bigger numbers than they did in 2016. Now whether or not that follows on Election day. These are all the early voters that we can track. But if that follows up on Election Day, the young voters could actually make a big impact on the state like Pennsylvania. OK, let's and and the presidency, of course, is what everybody focuses on the most for very good reason. But But let's let's look at the Senate here. I mean, if you're a Democrat, and you're looking at this, you're saying, Wow, we have a really good shot that this could flip. Yeah, His Senate is ah, Titan. There's no question about that. Republicans have probably five or six states where they have likely swings to the Democratic side, potentially. And they only have one pickup in in in. Ah, Alabama. What is interesting? State toe Watch is Georgia. Not only do you have a Senate race up for grabs, But you have a special election for a senator to Senate seats up in Georgia this year. And Georgia has a funky law where you have to get over 50% of the vote, or you go to a runoff. And at this point, neither one of the incumbent Republicans there look like they're going to be able to get to 50%. So you could have the control. The Senate decided months later in a special election on top of the special elections you already have? Yeah, possibly in in January. Now now vote counting. Of course, you know, we hoped to see something tomorrow probably won't. But the president has said that he may claim victory on on election night anyway, both sides of lawyered up. This could be a mess as well. I don't want to be negative, Bob, but but this could be a mess. Well, The good news is states run their elections and so unless they decide to defer to the president states, which would be extraordinary, right? No, no state Tends to do that voluntarily, then they're going to count at their own pace. In fact, we've never had an election where the actual elections certifications. We're on election night. They always take days later. In order to facilitate all the ballot collection and count all the ballots, And then the state certifies. There's there. It just simply doesn't happen on election night in any election we've ever had. And so I think that most of the states if their discipline and they follow their own rules, they'll pay no attention to the president's protestations. He did this in 2018 during the Florida governor's race where he said, Oh, you know, all the votes were counted, and we ought to just move on. We're Yeah, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much and will watch for you and David and Jeannie. With our special election coverage
Power Shut-Offs Become A Way Of Life For Many Californians
"The utility PG and E shut down parts of its system to prevent its own power lines from sparking fires during strong winds and dry weather that has left hundreds of thousands of people there waiting for the lights to come back on after two days in the dark. These sorts of widespread power shut offs have become a way of life for many Californians and ask Beedies Lily Jamali reports. Residents aren't happy in the tiny community of Concow, about three hours north east of San Francisco. Jesse Olson and her family have lived through PG and E power shut offs. Not once but twice in the last week. It's not easy. It's like they're adjusted recovering from one power outage, and then you're preparing for the next one. A portable generator has helped them stay warm. Keep phone's charged and for the kids at least try to do school online. We also have. We also have a farm with livestock, So we have to keep the antibiotics refrigerated. The Olsens survived California's deadliest and most destructive fire 2018 campfire. It burned down their home. It was sparked by old poorly maintained equipment belonging to Pee Jeannie Online's that stayed active during peak fire conditions. And now we're all living in an RV. Olson adopted her boys out of foster care. They'd been homeless before that. I never wanted them to have tto deal with homelessness ever again. Ah, they they were supposed to have a forever home some place where they felt safe for the rest of their lives. And now that's gone. Olson calls P Genie's power shut offs and necessary evil. 200 Miles southeast, Terry McBride has also suffered the consequences of fire and power shut offs. Her home in the community of Mountain Ranch was hit by a PG Any cost fire five years ago, 2400 Square foot house to a 250 scores for camping trailer. If you didn't laugh, we'd cry. She's surviving P Genie's power shut offs in her trailer. It's like line camping. You know, my mom's got electricity and Senate dress I was able to put My frozen stuff in her freezer so they don't go bad. It's been tough. And while some p Jeannie Fire survivors feel relief that the company is proactively cutting power, McBride is frustrated at the utility for neglecting its lines for years. My feeling is why didn't you do your job in the first place? Why are we having to go through this? Now? P. Jeannie has promised to make long term fixes to its lines. So power outages like these aren't a permanent way of life for NPR news. I'm Lily Jamali in San Francisco.

The Parents Are Not Alright
"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

PG&E Mistake May Have Exacerbated Rolling Blackouts
"Morning. An error by PG and E last month may have contributed to one of California's first rolling blackouts in two decades.

Jeannie is very unpopular is there anybody in P. genies corner our world not the company itself there's again the people who are looking forward to participating in the settlement want to get it over with but as far as the company itself it's a much Renee men cornered California anymore and in terms of service speaking the bigger the bigger picture of politics how bout P. genies pass campaign donations would anybody be taking campaign donations for the company can the company make campaign donations at this point with the bankruptcy filing are the lawyers will have something to say about that of course people associated with the company you're perfectly free to make our campaign donations however those donations are come with the increasing political costs Gavin Newsom is under fire graphic take it because our contributions in the past I suspect he's not gonna be taking any contributions from completing creek years in the future and to that end how did we get here with us and we we we know how we got here with P.

Jeannie and he told them about concerns he had about electrical equipment that he felt made the utilities power lines more vulnerable to starting dangerous fires with this is this is incredibly timely because this guy he's in the middle of a lawsuit right now this wrongful termination lawsuit he has asked the judge to allow him to file a seven point six million dollars civil lawsuit against the utility for all of this he said he was placed on leave and that he was terminated by P. Jeannie after he complained about a up a piece of a piece of equipment called a re closer and this is something that will automatically restart a power line after it turns off any was saying that the the device allows PGD to avoid sending people out to do this if they would do it automatically but that's pretty common they said these temporary faults which are common re closers can also be risky because they actually shoot bursts of electricity they could start a fire if a broken line is in contact with the tree or a butcher of some sort of Dr education not taught her networks for twenty years at the company he says he and his colleagues complained to management about the re closers repeatedly since the company began installing them in twenty seventeen remember this is just months before P. genies power lines sparked a series of fires up there in napa that's that's the area where he worked so he says the utility was on safely installing these re closers in higher risk fire areas but that the company didn't take the warnings seriously so that needless to say P. genies up to its neck in other legal problems right now so they asked the judge to deny the motion saying that he should just let is ongoing union reprint the grievance he filed after termination sort of run its course they're busy of course with the bankruptcy in the billions of dollars that they settled for a joystick just last week as a matter of fact but here's the thing if in fact this is a problem and if they had somebody in their own company telling them that this was going to be a problem and the timing of this works out as well because like you said it was months before the fire in the wine country that roared through and killed a bunch of people and damaged billions of dollars worth of property this is the guy they want to be quiet this is the guy they want to shot a how much of a whistle blower did he need to be I am of the belief that PGA any new its lines were unsafe but just didn't want to pay the money to update their equipment they were just kind of rolling the dice with the the lives of so many people that live around those faulty power lines you know I don't think this guy was this genius I had this aha moment is like the re closers or whatever the hell the call right you know what I mean I think that as a company it's filled with engineers that the writing is on the wall they they they didn't update their equipment for decades and they knew that they they should but they just did it because they want to pay the money up front the the I think the problem that you're going to see is that these re closers this specific type of equipment was implicated in not just that fire in wine country the the nuns fire complex but also the which fire the huge one down in San Diego twelve years ago the a huge fire in Australia from ten years ago that was also killed a hundred and twenty people I think so these types of you know this pattern is going to be a problem because P.
