"Remember that were chosen, and I don't think that that's the end all be all. I think that once those recall position petitions are filed, they're not opposed. Maybe, uh, starting some new ones. Um, but because all of us involved in all of these little ad hoc groups are just parent volunteers with lives and jobs and Children. Um, they had to keep it a little bit smaller to begin with. So I think that's why they isolated three people to begin with. And then you know, they may expand from there. And do you know the status of the recall effort as of this afternoon? I know that they are working. Actively still recall it.

We are frankly terrified. There's something like that could happen in your town. It's a common city to come school. It's incredible. What sort of teacher what sort of man was some? Well, Patty Well, it was very serious teacher very engaged with his pupils. Very kind with his pupils. It was ah, indeed, a good teacher. So the idea that he would show thes cartoons as a deliberate provocation. I mean, it sounds like from the sort of teacher he waas that that just wouldn't that wouldn't happen. That's not what he was like. Ofcourse, he organized the same lessons last year. It was the occasion to open the debate and two to listen to everyone to talk about the freedom of speech in his class. And so what happened then? This time after that, the class too. Did some of the parents then start talking about it, And that's what what Got things going? What what happened in those days after the class? Will a parent's contact? Yes, but that that was the father of a girl and didn't agreed with the course and we are in our association off. Parents is no religious and no political engagement. So we took this warning with great cushion He wrote to us, and he said he was shocked and the teacher Mr fired that he was a bad teacher indeed. How did you reply? We went to talk to the college to hear about this problem and to know what was the culprit of the facts. College told us that the facts were not how the father told and said to us that we're speaking with the father to explain and talk her to one another. So we thought that the affair was OK. So then few days later last Friday, another mother wrote to me and said that she was shocked because Is that she had seen the video where the father told again that the teacher must be fired and she told me my son was in that class and the fact he told are not true. She was very shocked. Is it right? That some Well said to the peoples that they if they if they might be offended by the pictures that they could leave the class. Is that right? He offered, the pupils might be shocked to close. Their eyes are to leave for a moment. That was very kind of him. I think he tried to respect the pupils. You worried about the peoples of the school? Do you think they're They're safe at the moment. Yeah, My daughter is in this village a few minutes ago, then Yes, She's safe and it happened in our city, but it could happen in another city. It's not conform. That is the problem or it's not our city. But it's horrific, isn't it for the for the Children to know that this happened Yes, it's talking off course I couldn't deny we left to leave them to explain and to go further to world Children that this is not the true world we want to make for us. Is that the conversation you've been having with your daughter trying to explain Yes course. Ofcourse. But every every day Did you know how How is she? How is she coping? Well, she knows there We will that It was a foolish person. We did that. And she is very clear about that. Just one final question. I mean, do you think in future? Teachers should show those cartoons again. Or do you think that it would just be in a stupid thing to do? Given? What what has happened? Well, I know that it's a dedicate question, but I think it should be a good thing to learn to Children to be respectful to one another, and to alone about freedom of speech and freedom of drawings and learn about the great question off our society's so if showing the cartoon is a way to teach toward future citizens about freedom of speech, she could be a good thing, but it must be done very precisely, and in a way to build our own Citizens and to build our nation.

"You TVs 6 38 Thursday morning, September 17th just less than 24 hours ago announced that big 10 football is coming back Target date October 24, which is But a week later than Ah, lot of people were speculating all the long sports director Matt McCoy. I covered the story all day yesterday and Matt. I mean, a this point. Who do you kind of give the credit to mean? It was the president's vote, I suppose. That was the catalyst, but you have, you know I mean, in an incredible number of people almost begging to play, whether it's Justin Fields. It's a coach Ryan Day. Other people around the league. Of course, you have the return to competition Taskforce. You have a medical subcommittee that was a co chaired by Ohio State's doctor Jim Borchers. So I mean, there's a lot of people working on this. Who do you give the most credit to to get this done? I think in my opinion, had the decision been made, and everybody you know, was upset but kept quiet. We're not where we are today. So I give a lot of credit actually, to the parents associations of Nebraska and Ohio State. Randy Wait, whose son Sean Way now may come back may not. We'll see. But he was the first one at least at a liar State that really got vocal and got out there got in the media got on Fox got on ESPN saying, You know, we need they need to revisit this. They need to talk to us on the parents Association got involved? I I really believe that had Parents and players. Been quiet were not here. I mean, it happened because of public pressure. In my opinion, so all those people he mentioned Justine Fields Ryan Day but also The parents, Amanda Bab, who we had on Randy Wade, who we had on I think they made a big difference and put the pressure on the big 10 too. Kind of revisit this thing, And I think it worked. If they're if they're quiet, we are not here. In my opinion. Well, I mean, the thing that gets me is no fans as I understand it yet, but businesses around stadiums around the big 10 are pumped. Because they know with that football comes enthusiasm and mobility and fans and money, So that's good and as far as the campus is concerned. I mean, they're taking it seriously, not like just cart Blanche. Let's go. They say they're going to be disinfecting common areas at least three times a day. Masks will be worn indoor and outdoor at all times, with two exceptions. During strenuous exercise. We're taking part in performance based activity. So if they got the pads on their probably don't have the mask on, they're going to be cleaning out workout in weight room equipment training workouts limited in number. I'm going to social distance and they say they're going to get baseline test for Cove ID and then weekly testing dependent on level of activity from team to team, So it sounds to me kind of like what we were here in. When they cancelled. It was a lot of the players like, Look, I feel healthier and safer in the bubble than I do. Just in general pop going to class, for sure they're going to be tested starting in a week, getting regular tests and Yes, I think the safety protocols in place in the big 10 was one of the big things and you mentioned Dr Jim Borchers. He had a huge part in this with the From My understanding with the meeting's over the weekend had a big impression on the On the president's with his presentation, talking about myocarditis and the other safety measures that are in place to make sure that they keep Cove it at bay as much as possible. For these football programs. The the other thing that's interesting. Joel is I mean, with the season starting October, 27th our I'm sorry. October 24th. I mean, Usually most of the season. He's played in good weather. Good weather months. Even though the season shortened and truncated to eight or nine games. I mean, who know I guess I'm saying whether could really be a factor in this thing. I mean, you know you could have an Ohio State Michigan game. If you know that traditionally goes back to the last game on December 12th. I mean, who knows what it's going to be like here? We had a snowball in the fifties. You never know. So you know better late than never, I guess is what I'm saying. But you shall not around campus and everything. I mean, if it's ah, 20 degree day or something in December. I mean, I don't know how many people are going to be Ah, milling about campus. But of course, there's no fans involved so well, they will be W some because there always is. Yeah, So here's my big question. Eight games. With 1/9 game as the conference championship game. They're going to try to get that done the 19th and then all the selection for the national title that comes the following day. So in your mind What kind of schedule Will Ohio State because they're talking eight games and then if they do what everybody expects they play the title game. What kind of schedule is going to be most advantageous for the Buckeye? Well, they just can't lose. They're going to play. I mean, I would assume That they're going to play the six teams in their division and then to crossover games. I don't really know Joel that it matters. Who you play. You just have to tow win your games. If you're Ohio State and do it impressively, and then you can't be 81. You've got to be nine. You know, you gotta you gotta win every game. First of all, if you're right, and when you're probably not I'm assuming that the loss is going to you know, they have to go to Penn State. You can't lose depends State. You can't lose the mission. You can't lose your division games. They've got to be undefeated. They've got to be nine. Toto have a chance to be in that college football playoff. Theyjust do they can, But it doesn't matter who they play. Your I don't think it matters to the schedule is fine. We just got to take care of it. I think you know, they say the college football playoff committee says. That every years a new year we start from scratch. We do it based on merit in all this yada, yada, yada yada, but Ohio State's reputation going into this year, I think Supersedes a lot of that. They are considered one of the best teams in the ranked number two in the preseason poll before they fell out of the rankings. They're generally considered one of most talented teams, if not the most talented team in the country, so as long as they don't lose, I cannot imagine even if their schedule is weaker. They don't have as many data points as this team or that team. I can't imagine them not getting it. And one other thing. The the Pac 12 still isn't playing. Now. They've been left out of the college football playoff three times. So you know that's not a big deal. But what I'm saying is that's one Mohr. Potential like Oregon isn't going to be involved. You know, Oregon's got a really good team. They could go undefeated. That's another team. That's out of the picture that you don't have to worry about matching your resume against if that makes sense. So that's just my opinion, But I could be wrong there. You know, there could be six undefeated teams in alive stayed. You know, as Rutgers and Maryland and Indiana on their schedule on these other teams don't and maybe they get bummed, But I just I can't imagine with Justin Fields in the town, but they have coming back that if they don't If they stay undefeated and win their games..

We're getting ready to wrap up with a couple of other questions here before I ask you how people can get involved in where they can connect with you guys. Maybe if you could tell me what's one thing that you've learned in your work with many likes well. I already mentioned that you know. I'm frequently filled with gratitude and that is because people do see the value of the model and so and they WANNA help they wanna do something and that really gives me resolve. It strengthens my resolve. And it helps me to continue to move forward because this is hard work. That's something I've learned. This is very difficult. This is not a small project that can be done Easily unless you have lots of money from you know some big donors and I moved here about a year before I started this organization had no connections here so I didn't know anybody in the community. I had the only money I had was the little bit that I was going to contribute and to operate and get ourselves formed a five. Oh One C. Three and all of that sort of thing so I think that while I've learned that the work is hard I've also learned takes a combination of creative and strategic thinking. Takes the right team. It takes money so those are kind of some practical things that I've learned. We have a lot of local very good volunteers. We HAVE DONORS. We have board members. We have wonderful staff and Laura and we have some really good philanthropic support from corporations. And I've learned that it's also going to take some public funds. I think to support a sustainable long-term so one of the things I'm looking at is. What kind of services can we provide where we can actually create a revenue stream and that's not easy in the nonprofit world but there are some contracts available so we're we're trying to build some capacity there so that's a little bit of a learning thing?

"I lost nineteen pounds. And I'm just grateful to be alive at this point. That's no newfangled. Dia jen. That is a parrot head from Oklahoma, who is part of a group of forty some odd people who got sick and the Dominican late, teen pounds. Oh, that's that's far more than a month. Zuma's revenge. That's that's definitely poisoning faucets. Forty-seven members of the central Oklahoma parent association allow they got sick and that saying what resort you were trying to find out what that is. But again the Dominican again put to Connor. Holy cow. I mean, come on. Well, didn't they have over the weekend to somebody else died or from last year? And the family wants the, you know, the FBI or whomever, CDC wherever's there to look into Tanya. All these cases and they were just told before net if you didn't die all, you're just, you know, Drake, the water or something, they did that the tone, the family actual causes heart attack. But then what was the story we had on Friday that their machine there? What is their tax collagen machines were broken? They won't do any toxicology tests now like oh my God. His do you want to hear from another parrot head? Oh, no. There's more. Here's Dana flowers by mid week, people began to get sick and we're missing events and we began to wonder what was going on and most people, I think nisham thought that it was food poisoning. I bet you, they don't think that anymore you know what they might it might still be food poisoning. But I don't know anybody who lost nineteen pounds from food poisoning. Dana, there was just talking. He says he was sick for three weeks now after the visit when he got home, you still have the same symptoms. The last three weeks. Wow. This is getting really serious. It's, it's it's horrifying, which means they have somebody who's getting got more and more brazen. Usually, if we with a pattern of serial killers, they start off small, you know, maybe they kill an animal, or unfortunately, they sexually assault somebody in that isn't enough gratification. Then they gotta kill somebody and then that isn't enough gratification because they got to keep on doing it. And then they, you know, they all have their little MO. But in this case, this, if it say it is somebody trying to bump off guests, or they're mad at the hotel, or whatever this has been going on for years. And this one by the way, the parrot head trip from Oklahoma is just in April. This was recent one and wasn't it remember, now the timeline, the all knows it was last week was within the same week with that guy from Staten Island says his mom and they won't do the toxicology that was this week right last week. So it's been going on for at least a year because one of the first people that dog was last April. It was that, that guy died. They said shortly after he had a drink from the mini bar. He was the latest one to be recognized as the male, because then that the that woman came that died this past week, have we heard yet from anybody? That's not American, but was also a tourist Canadian or European and I know. And I'm surprised we haven't in maybe if we, we looked in to Canadian news or we looked in, you know, Australian news or Italian news, we may see that, but I'm surprised they haven't found other people from other countries, and I bet you have, but they aren't saying, because they don't wanna panic anybody what I I would. I would love to see the numbers on tourism. I know I would love to see those numbers. It's bad news for them. You gotta figure there's got to be a lot of cancellations. Now, when you get a hold tour groups like this member this situation in Aruba when Natalie Holloway us disappeared. Look what it did to the Aruban tourist tourism. It killed it for like six months. It's right. Actually probably even more took them years to get that back. And that was a girl who was -ducted from a bar by an individual and they pretty much figure that out right away. But still people weren't going because they were afraid. Now, this, you have no idea where it's coming from. Oh, I'm not going cross that off the list for vacation at said possibly cross off the Carolina.

"I'm Jamie Floyd in the hands of local politicians and journalists the debate over admission to New York City, specialized high schools has been reduced to shorthand on the one side. There's a coalition that supports expanding opportunity an equity on the other hand the Asian American community opposes any changes to the process or the test called the S H SAT, but many Asian American New Yorkers say they're tired of being portrayed as a monolithic group with only one perspective WNYC's. Jessica Gould reports. Outside forum in queens, supporters chanting, Keith the test inside the message is mostly the same for three hours alumni, parents even mentally school students testify, they are almost all Asian and almost all for the test. But there was also another concern people raised as you can see that the mayor and the chancellor education policy on Essex Jesse race division. Pending minority against one another that's Linda lamb, she grew up in Hong Kong, she sent her daughter to Stuyvesant, and she's a former co president of the parent association as she speaks many in the audience nod their heads and tap the floor many feel the city and the environment is very hostile to the family. They totally this franchise being discriminated games. And they feel that this light living the Chinese exclusion of eighteen eighty two game. It may be hard to see how eliminating a standardized test is reminiscent of a nineteenth century immigration ban. Especially since seventy four percent of the students at Stuyvesant identifies. Asian but that law comes up several times lamb and other say, they're angry the mayor excluded them when crafting his plan, and they're worried about how changes to the specialized schools will affect their children. They say the test has been away to succeed on merit to. Overcome structural, obstacles and racism. Alana. Muhammad takes the mic. I don't know how nation became such a shorthand for anti-asian in a lot of these conversations. We're having she's a recent Brooklyn tech alumna. She's wearing her school sweatshirt. Her parents are Indian from Guyana, she's a little nervous. She stands apart from many of the others because she opposes the test. She cites research on test bias and the challenge facing students learning English advocating from this perspective, do not take into consideration. The circumstances of Indo Caribbean, Asians, like myself and the vast diversity of Asian students in New York. The fight over the S H SAT is often framed as a struggle between reformers who want to boost integration and predominantly Asian families who want to preserve the status quo, but the Asian community is no monolith. And it spans both sides of the debate. The Nestle Leong is with the coalition for Asian American children and families her group is party to a lawsuit against the test that dates back to two thousand twelve we talk about each Americans here near city. We're talking about like, many ethnic groups various immigration experiences from a recent immigrant refugee experiences to second third-generation Asian-Americans, and even within particular countries, the ethnic groups within those countries, she talks about new refugees from Tabet in Paul who have never heard of the test families who can't afford prep classes, not to mention the six thousand Asian students who took the test and didn't get into any specialized school. We're talking about a really diverse community that also has a diverse perspective on the test. Even those who disagree on the test. They agree that the debate itself is often misrepresented by the media. Chris Kwok is with the Chinese American citizens alliance of greater New York. His alliance also sued the city they wanted to stop the first phase of the mayor's plan from going forward are the worst thing is when reading the newspaper. The opponents of integration. Because of though we oppose getting rid of the test. We care tremendously about diversity. He says his group wants to keep the test and improve the school system, add gifted and talented programs build more high quality high schools, he says too often politicians ignore or distort his communities perspectives. Maybe because most of them still view the fight for civil rights as a binary struggle between blacks and whites dominant race narratives are about the African American freedom struggle rightly so but Asian Americans have been here. A long time they've experienced their own struggles discrimination, and they are part of the American narrative as well and for him leader's ability to integrate all those narratives that's also being tested. Jessica Gould, WNYC news. French president Emmanuel Macron was due. To address the nation this past Monday.
