couple different angles are pretty interesting Texas they don't announces the results the last house back in the barn this is Bloomberg do anything was that a complete waste of time and a half a billion dollars is he is he getting out by the end of the night or is he really in the mix I heard I was watching MSNBC this morning and Joan make lovely couple they declared a two man race between

didn't have a lot of clothes and and you know have the the holey socks I'd wear and stuff like that and so I see a perfectly good pair socks and I think I can't get rid of these I may need them you

"That's the first thing, the second thing is it gets a little technical of technical detail. So we'll, we'll be good understand, how do lobs. Go about testing snips to stick with the sniffs for the time being you. See you genes can be looked. Let's say your jeans or the individual instructions the individual paragraphs in your operating manual. Okay. And within that paragraph. We all have we all should have two copies of any given power graph because of course, the miracle the awesome miracle of the human genome, is that it is deployed, we have two copies of the operating manual, you know, when you think of any coup piece of Gaza tree that you buy you only expecting to get one manual with it. You know, you're not gonna expect to have to almost identical copies of the manual yet with the human being. We've got to all. Most identical copies of the human manual any given time any paragraph, and he discreet instruction. And he discreet gene, that is going to be expressed the body, the cells gonna take a look at those two copies of the gene, one for mom, one from dad and make a determination as to which if the two copies, you'll sell is going to express their some basic phenomena defines. Are you going to express mums copy of gene Dodds copy of the gene, all you're going to express both of them and have a hybrid outcome? No. Of course snips come into play in than they are these spelling variations in the two copies the to power graphs. Okay. We'll when we go about testing snips at the laboratory level. What we're doing. We've gotta find a way to quote unquote, read the paragraphs and look for these variations will differs at a laboratory level is how many paragraphs is a test designed to query side. Simultaneously? He see some tests, the tested we for example, Dina company that we design we look at fewer paragraphs at any given Poynton time, because y the mole paragraphs that you simultaneously, try to query simultaneously. Try to look for these spelling errors the greater risk, there is that one paragraph starts to look like another, and we can get some cross talk we can get some full symphony, we can get some full negatives false positives in regard to the sniff that we're looking for. So now to summarize the technology for determining detecting these spelling differences. These snips is amazing across the board really slips there machineries that you can buy, you can run this garage. If you really wanted to, and you can be pretty confident in the results, you're getting, that's not the issue the issue here. Ben is the design of the test. How many genes are you looking at simultaneous? How many paragraphs in this twenty two thousand gene, manual? Are you attempting to query simultaneously keeping in mind that the more that you query simultaneously? There's a greater chance of our. So I think that's where it comes in. It comes into the design of the test the size of what you're looking for not not to say anything, the functional relevance of what you're looking for that. We'll talk about later on. Maybe. And then, of course, all you don't looking just spelling errors are you looking deletion errors are you looking at grammatical errors, these type of things that influence one test being different from another two? So when you say query simultaneously, d, you mean for example, if, if you're looking at one specific gene, rather than interpreting that gene in isolation. Actually interpreting it in terms of how it might interact with the other genes, so by query here we was speaking of the initial phys. Ical DA platform the PC, our platform of that, gene. So when you refer to query as interpretation that comes later, what I was referring to you. See there's an actual, molecular reaction think of attested think of that test, you having your DNA, DNA sample, an all going to do in that one test tube is, I'm going to go in using technology that will find one gene one predetermined Jean Anne. I'm going to ask on their any variations in that one predetermined, gene in your entire manual verses that I can take test you with your DNA all if your DNA and I can run in parallel. I can run a query. I can determine the sequence in the presence of irradiation's. Not just one, gene. I can do it for five genes, simultaneously twenty gene simultaneously. That's what I was referring to the more the number of genes. You try to scan..

"Every time. I see him. He does what he's supposed to do. Correct. Although he did have a brain malfunction where he thought a point guard tried to drive the lane lay it up and media charge. I don't know what that play was. That's the semi experience. You need to save those files for the defensive end Bubba, you can't be taken charges. Listen that whole time. I wouldn't put in in the regular season of working on it move. I gotta break it out. Now, I know what I need to work on everything. God damnit warriors lost the rockets. I don't think it matters. It doesn't. I do just think it's another like. Lose their first game the clippers you're gonna win. This. Do you really want to stretch this out? Did you think it was going to be a sweep after they won the first two though? No, I never sweep thinking still probably be five. Honestly. Right. But. Ours is one of steps bad. Now, don't give them time to be heard. Boy. Oh boy. Guess you? Thirty seven percent. Durant's like doubling up all of his averages in this series is because Steph Curry's on the core. It's called gravity you ever heard. It only I saw her. I saw people talk about that the other day, and I was just like I don't care at all about whatever this excuses. What's going on nor do I care? I'm moving on. It's like, I get it. And I've seen takes. It's like, okay. Who already know about the low variance with Steph who cares? The warriors by the. We're talking about like who's it better play between them and. Not only just one guy answer the call every single time. But he also doesn't have the lows. The other one has right, but you don't have higher highs, and you're not steadier and you'll get like. Poynton rebounds. Like, they're both washed Stephan, Katie, so it's not just not shooting. Well, I mean that's out of gravity which only direct creates that the wash. And it's. That's part of why. Kevin durant? Kevin durant? It's like if his threes is one the consistency. But because just because he can do it from everywhere. Right. And it's like a. Like in a perfect in a math lab. Yes. He should be posting up in dunking in the lane only taking corner threes. But in his he's just he's a real Hooper as we scholar. So like, he's just a I will take the open shot because I can make it. And so sometimes that looks like tin threes is last game which he had six of. And sometimes it looks like him like when he goes at work in the mid range. I think they said he hit like fifty four percent of his mid range shots something absurd. Probably. And it's like. Gravity. Steph creates. He's Steph aren't oleo, man. I hate to. I hate to hear it. There was a part this year. Where you're you're starting to see the vision on stuff over Durant. I was in. This was I was like the only reason I can't fully. I was like, okay. Let me see the playoff his out in the playoff. Exactly how it has. Same way that I've thought. Forever. Right. I think every time when the bacon on the line Durant. Shows is better. To me for nine playoff games this year Durant's averaging thirty six five and five. With a steal a block on fifty to forty four free throw percentage. It's probably high staff is averaging twenty three. Six and five with a steel not really blocking shots. On forty five forty probably ninety guys miss free. Throws miss again. Does that's the thing. He's ninety four. That's he's having a fine player. He's called right. But on the overall, he's fine. He's going to be fine. But. Man. Oh, man, granted what forty five plus three different times. He's got to the line at least ten at least..

Instead, we're going with a program that does not outlined anything. We don't know. What's going to come up? We don't know how it's going to look when it comes back this way. Federally approved waiver has the potential to expand Medicaid coverage for people who make up to one hundred percent of the federal poverty level are roughly twelve thousand dollars a year.

State Representative Vernon Joe talking about a Bill to replace Georgia's voting system, it's headed to the state Senate the house approved the plan yesterday that will overhaul the system with a touchscreen machine that prints off scam.

"So. The community today is smaller. It's never going to reach the heights at once did in the nineteen fifties and sixties it's never going to have that kind of intensity. But I think in every major market there's room for a Tiki bar. I think they're comically American. And I think they're just as valid as a sports bar. It's something that we invented as a people. There are wonderful example of American imagination and creativity from an era when Americans loved themed, dining teamed, experienced and they loved artifice, whether it was, you know. Snow lodge, the place or Bavarian schnitzel house or a Mexican hoc- Enda themed play whatever it was that people really enjoyed that artifice, and that structure of space that told you a story, and I think there's going to be room for that for a long time to come. There are still some theme dining places out there. But I can't think of anything that's so immersive that it takes you away from where you are and put you into this place that unless you live in Hawaii is completely different from what you can see outside of your window. He can't always afford to go to Maui or to heat, but you can go down the street for a drink. And if that brings a little bit of happiness to your life that I think that's great. So where should we end this Tiki journey? How about back where we started if Berkshire on was kind enough to give us her grandfather's ritual nightime recipe. You have Jamaican rum. And that at that time it was a seventeen year old Brum J Rey nephew from Jamaican. And so orange curious. Oh, not blue curious orange curious, which is a bitter orange or shot, which is almond and fresh lime. The thing that is the line is so important because we dropped the spent lime shell in the top of the drink because you still have the oils from the lime shell and then meant when you slap the meant it kind of as the whole kit and caboodle. Thanks so much to San Francisco based reporter brandy Hal for producing the story. Chances are there's new Tiki bar here you so if you're looking for a place to escape and unwind coca visit. But if not pick up a copy of Martin Cates. Excellent book smugglers cove, exotic cocktails rum and the cult of Tiki. It's recipes for the classic might end other drinks plus tips on setting up your own home Tiki party. Crew is hosted and produced by me. Bridget lancaster. Our executive producer is Caitlin.

About why people do these things but ended up process wasn't much closer to look two point two persons in your redeemable, evil Poynton action. Somebody had carried out and say that was an act of evil the point at which you did it. The reverse is different from me. He's more of an Old Testament guy.

You're you're never going to be allowed to be redeemed who is younger cops like Chevron Clark in my books of their across my point of view, which is a bit more liberal, shall we say, then reverses so I've got to make sure it's his voice in his eyes. I'm looking through the world. Yeah. You got some some deep fans here actually reached out to one of them. It's it's the mother of one of our producers in the show is deep and read all the books, and we we don't normally do this. But we got her to write a question. Oh, going a lot of your work describes the side of Edinburgh that is dark depressing corrupt does that come from the sort of Newark genre, you right in or do you see it as a realistic depiction of the life and politics than bro? Good question. And I think it's probably both. When I started writing these books I start to write about Edinburgh to try and make sense of the city and HUD, this darker site to in real life that was this darker side was crime. There was poverty. There were social problems. But also historically the history of of literature in Edinburgh. And also the history of the the city is a real is quite dark Everton acts of cannibalism tick, we go. Jecklin height written by an Edinburgh, author Robert Louis Stevenson, partly based on a real person code William Brodie who was a gentleman by a thief by night. And he was a craftsman. He was a good worker, and he was eventually hind on a scaffold. He had built. He must have been a template for Jacqueline height. And when Robert Louis Stevenson was child in his childhood bedroom was awarded OBE that had been made by William Brodie. Oh my God. His nursemaid. We tell the story this guy who was both good and evil contingent the same person. So that must have been hard wired. Eventually Stevenson would go and write Jacqueline Hyde, and I was very conscious when I wrote the first book the always trying to rewrite Jacqueline Hyde for nine thousand nine hundred Edinburgh, and I continue to do that. So it's a it's a complex small complex. And and I didn't read Anwar I didn't retrying fiction before start writing it. Yeah. So I was an advocate an accident or crime writer trying to write the great scores novel. Using Jacqueline height is my template. If you're just tuning in speaking with bestselling author, Ian, Rankin, we're talking about his latest novel following inspector John rebus. So in this latest Rivas story called in a house of lies, boys. Finding skeletal remains in the trunk of a car and a forest and old missing persons cases reopened. I think part of the joy, I'm learning of of of your work is trying to figure out what's going on as I'm reading it. And I hear that you also do that too. Like, you don't really know what's going to happen either. It's true. I mean, every writer is different than even every crime writers different in their approach. I make up is go along and quite a few of us do. So you don't know you also don't know who literally don't know when I started this. Buca had a dead private eye in the book is car didn't know who killed them. Or why? So I know as little as my detectives when I begin to book, and that's good. I think because if I don't know who did it probably the reader doesn't know either a beginning, you know, and the first draft of the book, which is pretty rough pray sketchy is me finding out as the detectives find out who he knew he was connected to what was the investigating..

We are highlighting and featuring ordinary people in our community who are doing some extraordinary things today, we are featuring in our comm- radio Atlanta's very own Maria Poynton Maria, welcome to the show. Thank you. Amanda, this is such an honor. Because when I think about your body of work as a journalist, I don't really think our listeners are aware of how extensive your experiences and today, we are honoring you because you are being honored by the state of Georgia. Tell us a little bit about that. And also give us more insight about who you are will Amanda, first and foremost, I'd like to thank you for wanting to sit down with me to conduct this interview. Because normally I'm interview. Everyone else out in the field and covering their stories. And it is humbling to me to be here today. What I received from the Georgia. House of representatives is a resolution and from several lawmakers there and I'd like to thank them immensely. It says a resolution recognizing and commending Maria Boynton on her outstanding service as a journalist, and it goes on for other purposes, a bunch of whereas is a lot of stuff that I didn't realize that. I'd actually accomplish that they were able to produce in a resolution, and I like to say that I am humbled by this. And it talks about the beginning the middle and present day. That's outstanding. I remember when you came in and you show me your resolution. I was so elated and so proud of you because that is not something that they just give everyone that's something that they hand pick someone to receive it in mayhem take you because you're so deserving of this. And I know that most people know. No you from the news. They know you from CNN they know you from the one zero three and thirteen eighty W A O K as well as your involvement through the community and through all of the activities that you do as a journalist. I remember you telling me that you are originally from Columbus, Georgia. I also remember you telling me that when you were in high school you were asked what you wanted to do. And you said what I said I wanted to be a reporter because we had stations there, and I would say, I'm Maria Boynton reporting and every with each honor, and I'm on social media. There's a young lady named Carol and we were on flat core together in high school. And she always says to me, you always said you want it to be a reporter. And that's how my life has has moved has transcended into the life of a reporter. I'm Maria Boynton. I feel honored to be allowed to do that. Because I feel that my purpose is that of public service. And in my job. I'm able to report I'm able to get to know others in my reporting and to allow others to get to know others as well. So you dream started out in high school. Yes, I I would say my dream started out actually when I was even younger than that. Because I had the television, and I was sitting there, and I would watch the TV. And then that of course, helped me realized that there were things that a little black girl could do on the television, and the, but I spent most of my time listening to the radio the radio was what mood my life. That's what we listened to. We listen to the radio the local radio stations. There had news persons on them. And then, of course, the music was another thing, I am a country music fan. And so we had a gentleman by the name of cousin Allen my hometown. And I have to tell you. I would listen to cousin Al his delivery. How he was set of the music how they would go to the news and how informative every bit of it was and I fell in love with it. Well, that's very evident. And the news has fallen in love with you as well. Now. I know you said that you knew what you wanted to do in high school were you involved in any journalistic clubs were you a news anchor for your school? How did you express that desire will actually won the local radio stations? There had a scholarship, and I went and applied, and then when I got home there was a gentleman visiting my grandmother's home, and he says, I know you don't want to be a DJ. So. Kind of made me think. Well, maybe I don't wanna do this. And so then I went off to school and lo and behold there was an audition for someone to read the news or southwest, Georgia. I was a student at Albany state university Albany state college at the time it was known as and so I went in and I auditioned, and I got it. And so that was how you can say I was thrust into my career of journalism, and it was great to come into the dining hall in people's. Hey, I just heard you on the news. I just heard you doing the news. So it was interesting. And then Dr James hill who was one of the deans at our college. He come into his office one day and said, I have an internship possibility for you. And so I guess we can say the rest is history. I started interning at a local station there in one or two weeks and they hired me. Wow. That's amazing. I wouldn't even say that. This is something that you wanted to do. I will say this is something that you are destined to do. There are a lot of young journalists out there who want to get into the business for the glamour and the glitter. You get that as well. But you truly do put in the work when we talk about your body of work. I know you went to Albany state where you're very involved, and I know that you received a proclamation from your own hometown down in Columbus, Georgia as well. Yes. I know you have a wealth of experience, and they honored and acknowledged your career in journalism your career expands beyond V one. Oh, three tell us a little bit about your journey in journalism. I know you were with CNN for awhile. Yes. CNN is one of them when I left Albany state. I went home and. Worked at local stations there for Davis broadcasting and then I got the call to come to Atlanta Georgia, and I went to work for WGST and the Georgia news network for a time and then went to CNN for the CNN radio network. At that time. I got married. So my husband, and I moved to the north and I worked in New York City for a couple of stations there at one I was a writer at another. I was on air, and we're we're talking about WCBS and W O R. And then I also lived in Pennsylvania Ed during that time. And so I was doing some some per diem work for stations there as well. And so then had a family tragedy lost my husband, and I moved home and when when back to the CNN radio network and was there for more than a decade. And of course, we know as companies evolve, and they make changes some of us were let go they cut our particular network. And I had a moment I gives to say to be with my my family, and then another opportunity came along and lo and behold, I ended up with. Intercom Atlanta Maria, you're always so poised and well put together, and if it's one thing that our listeners, instantly know is is that voice is that voice? Did you practice? The boys. Did you stand in front of the mirror when you were a little girl and just develop it over time? How did you get the voice it almost sounds like someone is rubbing silk over the microphone? I mean. It's just that smooth tell us how you perfect it the voice. Oh, amanda. So kind actually when I was in school. I had a speech issue in reference to being able to differentiate between the C H is and the S H is, you know, the speech therapist came into school one day. And that was the issue that she found with me. So I became very much aware of that. And then at Albany state. Dr Martin dean Williams was one of my speech and audiology professors and one of the things that she was very conscious of and aware of was helping us to be able to vocalise better. And to be able to use the words in a way in which they made sense. For instance, we talk about pronunciations, for instance, the word ask, you know, A S K E D that was a word that we had so much fun with in school. Because we say ask whatever people don't know how to properly say that word all the time. So that's one of the words, and I always tell them what I see you're Ascot Ascot. She asked him. And and so it it comes from practice. It comes from practice. It comes from wanting to. I guess you can say sound is though, I know what I'm talking about. And to be able to deliver it in a way where I put for the persona of believability and trust someone once told me, you have gravitas and. Okay, works for me. Yes. I love that word gravitas. But now, I need to say it s gotta ask it. Yes. Maria. It's it's that voice in it's that level of commitment that have generated a lot of awards for you. You know, I don't think a lot of our listeners know, just how appreciate it. Your bodies of work have been I know just from reading your resume, which by the way is two pages long because it's so impressive. You've won how many Peabody's too? In addition. You also won a DuPont to DuPont to DuPont to Peabody's and a host of AP awards. Yes. So for our listeners who are not familiar with what a Peabody is or what a DuPont award is there like the Grammys of journalism, correct? Yeah. They are and the DuPont's and the Peabody's or for collaborative efforts when I was at CNN. And yes, these are like the Grammys of journalism, and I've also won an award from Atlanta association of black journalists nominated for national association of black journalists or Soledad O'Brien and her works. We collaborated when I was working at CNN. So it's it's been a wonderful journey. I don't know what's next, but the journey has been great when it comes to awards. I have to tell you the first award. I was shocked that I want. I didn't even go to the ceremony. It was for the Atlanta association of black journalists and the young lady who went for me. I call back. I was on vacation as to how to go. She said you one and I was shocked and amazed because I don't do it for the awards, but they are nice. They are nice to get. But I do it because we have so many who stories on heard, and there are days when I just wish I could go cover this story, and that story, and and you know. I'm I'm down to cover a protest because as people exercising their first amendment. Right. The right to protest the right to be heard. Speaking of which I have to share this story with you. I just got off from work here in a calm radio Atlanta downtown, and I had to go down to the capital went down to get a permit renewed. And while I was down there. I have hazard early ran into a protest. And I'm like, the news is just coming to me like a magnet, and I'm staring there. Looking at these people assemble in an I'm thinking, man, I'm tired all I came down here to get was a permit renewed for a moment. I just stopped, and I was going to go just going to go and get it and go home. But then I thought what would Maria do what would Maria? Bullington do. And then I I said she would go she would cover this event. She would be over there, getting interviews taking pictures. So I went I I covered the event because I knew this what you do. And as a journalist new to the industry, I fill is very important to.

But now, I need to say it s gotta ask us. Gotta yes. Maria. It's it's that voice in it's that level of commitment that have generated a lot of award for you. You know, I don't think a lot of our listeners know, just how appreciate it. Your bodies of work have been I know just from reading your resume, which by the way is two pages long because it's so impressive. You've won how many Peabody's too? In addition. You also won a DuPont to do Pont to Pont to Peabody's and a host of AP awards. Yes. So for our listeners who are not familiar with what AP body is or what a DuPont award. Is there like the Grammys of journalism? Correct. Well, yeah, they are and the DuPont's and the Peabody's or for collaborative efforts when I was at CNN. And yes, these are like the Grammys of journalism and also won an award from Atlanta association of black journalists nominated for national association of black journalists or Sola data O'Brian and her works. We collaborated when I was working at CNN. So it's been a wonderful journey. I don't know what's next, but the journey has been great when it comes to awards. I have to tell you the first award. I was. Shocked that I want. I didn't even go to the ceremony. It was for the Atlanta cessation of black journalists and the young lady who went for me a call back. I was on vacation as to how to go. She's that you one. And I was shocked and amazed because I don't do it for the awards, but they are nice. They are nice to get. But I do it because we have so many who stories are on heard, and there are days when I just wish I could go covered this story, and that story, and and you know, I'm I'm down to cover a protest because as people exercising their first amendment, right? The right to protest the right to be heard. Speaking of which I have to share this story with you. I just got off from work here in radio Atlanta downtown, and I had to go down to the capital. I went down to get a permit renewed. And while I was down there. I have hazard we ran into a protest, and I'm like, the news is just coming to me like a magnet. And I'm staring there. And looking at these people assemble in an I'm thinking, man, I'm tired all I came down here to get was a hermit renewed. In for a moment. I just stopped, and I was going to go just gonna go and get it and go home..

"From the center for investigative reporting. PR x. this is reveal. I'm Elliot. So we just dug deep into the world of a very harsh prosecutor in warlords, but in some places across the US Houston, Chicago, even Mississippi newly elected progressive prosecutors are bending tough on crime and vending their policy towards mercy. Many of them have won elections with help from criminal Justice reform. Billionaire George Soros in Philadelphia. Soros spent almost one point seven million dollars to back the campaign of a man who never prosecuted the case in his life. The attorney of Philadelphia, Larry Pressler. Reveals lower star. Chesty has a story of a total outsider trying to change how justices done more. More in a slid co working space, right by city hall about forty fresh-faced assistant. Prosecutors are meeting their new boss thrill z. well, here some of you I know from interviews. Some of you have never met DA. Larry crasner is pacing back and forth with a coffee Cup trying to convince the new hires in this room. Some just out of law school that almost everything they've heard about being a prosecutor is wrong. The obligation of a prosecutor to seek Justice cannot simply be defined as if this is a sports of it. It's not just Pat yourself on the back by saying, charged more charges than ever charge more defendants than ever charged the highest charge. In every case, we got more years, we must be keeping everybody safer crasner so adamant because for decades, Phillies jails have been packed with thousands too many people. Most of them African American. We We don't. don't reverse this insane money fire of mass incarceration before he was elected DA crasner was a career civil rights attorney. He's defended black lives matter activists. He sued the police department. Dozens of times he tells the new recruits, his goal to send fewer people to jail to end mass incarceration in Philly entirely. Some of them are Notting along, but the old guard prosecutors working at the DA's office when crasner took the helm, last winter, they were a harder sell. We carefully vetted people who we thought might never be down for this mission. And we asked them to leave and they left. The purge was on full display is the file boxes kept rolling out of the DA's office thirty one staffers including a number of mortar squad, prosecutors, high-ranking deputies and division chiefs were among those terminated. His local ABC news footage showed lawyers, mostly older, white men, dragging boxes of paper through the January slush. Then in February crasner told me came the document that would come to be known as the memo. We have laid down policies that have caused a little bit of commotion, which Poynton different direction crasner had bullet pointed his new policies in an internal staff memo which got leaked. It's a long document here. Just a few of those bullet points for most non violent crimes. His prosecutors should offer the lowest possible sentence. They should stop charging anybody arrested for marijuana possession. They should stop charging most prostitution cases. Shoplifters stealing small amounts should just get a ticket. The idea was to stop jailing people who are homeless or poor or who have problems with drugs and get them help. Instead. Leandra attack, oh, runs crasner. Charging unit there. The lawyers who decide which cases to charge and what charges to bring after the police arrest someone. She says, a lot of people freaked out when they saw this memo. They act like crasner was gonna, fling, open the jail doors and let everybody go, but she didn't get what the big deal was charging small amounts of marijuana anymore. Whoop, do. It's true that the city had already decriminalized small amounts of marijuana. Few years ago, there were huge. Citywide initiatives already underway to reduce the jail population, and they were working. It seems so obvious and it's not like everybody was all on fire to prosecute the small amount of marijuana cases or the prostitution cases. But in the day to day grind of hundreds of cases, crasner is new policies, shook things up. They were followed, especially in the beginning of unevenly. Mark Holden is the policy director at the Philly public defender's office. But the very fact that a good number of DA's were actually doing what Mr..
