"Joe Biden is outpacing every president since Richard Nixon in confirming circuit court judges Joining me is Carl Tobias a professor at the university of Richmond law school Biden's 6th appellate nominee was confirmed Tell us about Gustavo gelpi Well he was district judge in Puerto Rico who was elevated by Biden Actually George W. Bush appointed him to the district bench He served for many years there And now has been confirmed for the first circuit as the second person from Puerto Rico to ever be confirmed to that court Is there a so called Puerto Rico seat on the first circuit Well I guess you could say that but only the last two named from Puerto Rico are the people who have sat on the first circuit So you could say that but we'll see in the future what happened It's a very small quarter only 6 judges of the smallest of the appeals courts in the U.S. guilty was confirmed by a bipartisan vote You had three Republican senators supporting him senator Susan Collins of Maine Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska Was he less controversial than some of the other nominees where the vote was much closer or well maybe but those.

"The U.S. seems to be on the downward slope of the delta surge of the late summer So what does that mean Is it time to celebrate Take a tentative sigh of relief NPR's Selena Simmons stuff and take stock If you look at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's graph of the country's daily COVID-19 case counts at the peak of the delta surge there were about a 150,000 new cases every day that was back in early September Now there are less than half as many cases every day around 70,000 As CDC director Rochelle Walensky noted on Friday in a press briefing that's not the only metric that's headed down The 7 day average of hospital admissions was about 6000 per day Also a decrease of about 10% from the previous week And 7 day average daily deaths were about 1250 per day a decrease of about 4% from the previous week But there's still a lot of spread around the country warns doctor Celine gounder an infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist at NYU and Bellevue hospital I think we have to be very careful yes things are trending in the right direction but we're far from being on the other side of this When the trendlines look good people sometimes let their guards down with masking and hand washing and that can backfire and lead to more spread she says especially with colder weather pushing people indoors and the winter holidays bringing people from different parts of the country together And I think that is going to set off maybe not a huge surge but certainly a wave of cases How exactly that plays out is going to depend on a lot of variables including whether the FDA authorizes COVID-19 vaccines for kids as young as 5 and whether worker vaccination mandates expected from federal agencies any day now will get more people to roll up their sleeves Because despite the early start only 57% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated That's behind Chile Cambodia Brazil and dozens of other countries Salinas have been Stefan and PR news Last summer coronavirus infections in Puerto Rico were trending up in a way that did not look good It was a real cause for concern on an island where four years after hurricane Maria destroyed the power grid electricity is still unreliable which complicates just about every aspect of a pandemic response But Puerto Rico has turned things around Now 73% of the population is fully vaccinated the highest rate in the U.S. where the average is still 57% So what happened Monica Felix mohair the director of communications and science outreach for scientific Puerto Rico has more Welcome to the program Thank you It's a pleasure to be here Now to be clear more than 3000 people have died in Puerto Rico due to COVID-19 And in responding to the crisis there have been lockdowns right Curfews mask mandates the government requires proof of vaccination for even guests in hotel rooms and short term rentals How people in Puerto Rico responded to those types of measures I think people respond to it pretty well There was so much concern with when the pandemic started that we have such a fragile healthcare system There's a lot of concern that the pandemic could cause it to collapse So I think everyone pretty much rallied to do what needed to be done So that we could keep that healthcare system from collapsing and from having the worst happen in Puerto Rico You talked about the healthcare system are there other hurdles unique to Puerto Rico that had to be overcome I mean I think the power outages and the reliability of the electricity system was a big concern especially at the beginning with some of the vaccine that required special refrigeration or freezing even So that was a big concern and power is still very unreliable And in Puerto Rico there was concern about getting vaccines to remote areas There are a lot of rural communities in Puerto Rico and generally I would say equity So there's still some concerns and in terms of equity that I think still need to be addressed to get those vaccination levels even higher and protect more of the population Our vaccines and preventative measures politicize the way we're seeing in the continental U.S. Fortunately now we don't see that correlation between political ideologies and people's willingness to get vaccinated or use masks Historically we've had really good acceptance of vaccines and while there are people that are hesitant the majority of the population I think understand that vaccination is a really important factor or a tool for Puerto Rico to control COVID-19 What do you think that the rest of the U.S. can learn from the experience of Puerto Rico increasing its vaccination rates You know it's not like the issue of COVID and vaccination hasn't been politicized It's just been politicized in a different way Not in terms of identity or ideologies political ideology So I think you know there is a lot of work to do in the U.S. to understand how people's values their beliefs their identities influence vaccination or health decision and figuring out you know how do we engage those people instead of contributing to the polarization And then I think broad coalitions you know I was talking about solidarity And in those broad coalitions different groups of people and segments of society in Puerto Rico came together to work towards preventing COVID-19 vaccinating people against COVID-19 And I think those broad coalitions are going to be really important to get vaccination levels higher in the United states Monica Philadelphia is.

"Rico so they i. I like to call adopted america. And maybe sometimes it's clothing and customs even some of its language. But i don't know if they ever really assimilated they. They remain puerto ricans. Who happened to be american. Or maybe americans happen to be puerto rican. I'm not really sure exactly how you want to that. But i tell you renting. Yeah i never forgot who they were and always always inspired that because it wasn't some stubborn belief in and and being a being a rebel. You know it wasn't some You know at the hell with you. America i'm gonna do this and i'm going to do that i to me. It was always about. This is who i am. This is where i come from. This is how i continue to want to live my life. This is a free country america so for anyone to be able to do that. We we easily accept that. And i think sometimes that when we don't as americans We create barriers. That we shouldn't and we wound up making prejudiced. I shouldn't be there. And sometimes those things they become a former racism will even racism. Because you know racist doesn't happen overnight it steps to it you get the barrier. You got the prejudice the next you know it so if you could watch out for those steps you could watch out to not be that and i'm very fortunate to be around people that a day wasn't difficult towards me or prejudicial towards me because hell if you think they would different like imagine how they looked at me. I'm about as the difference is. They probably have met somebody. That's italian chinese and protestant. So i mean you're talking about being outside all across the board Yeah that would definitely be me. And maybe it's reason why. I felt so comfortable around them and how they felt comfortable about me. Because i think in many instances we all kind of felt like a bit of an outsider in america. Anyway now what are we go is extremely interesting in different because also you had a lot of people that when they came to america to learn to live to work because now everybody wanted to stay in puerto rico. Sometimes the the employment they wasn't wasn't really the best especially in the fifties and sixties. I really didn't start becoming a big tax haven and a big place where was manufacturing and more employment and more people went back and so like really in the mid seventies into the eighties so he got people who came to To america from from puerto rico because this is more of a land of opportunity then puerto rico was at the time and they did so at the hardship of deleting someplace beautiful and you go into new york a. folks. I'm from new jersey. So and i don't mean to make fun of new york but i swear to god i if you ever been puerto rico before i have and then you go to new york. You're like what the hell is this..

"Believed in the american dream so much that in many in many aspects. I don't even know if they understood consciously and not they just seem to want to be more american than they wanted to be italian or chinese particularly my mother she. I mean. I don't even think she admitted to being chinese half the time. I mean i'm serious. He's stood care. Shindig was important. In fact in many instances she thought it was an obstacle. And i think in many ways i kind of gravitated to the puerto ricans in my neighborhood and and and the culture in general and just defend ships. They had later on when i grew up in the dating of forty rican girls. I appreciate it more. Because i just i just never found a puerto rican person. That was running away from the culture. And i don't see this in the in a judgmental way. I especially when i'm talking about my payments over here i'm being honest. Ambien respectful. but it's just a fact. There's no other way for me to interpret that i just never found puerto ricans be though i always found them to be incredibly embracing of their culture and their heritage. It doesn't mean they didn't embrace him america. it's i. i grew up with that. They didn't speak english and spoke. Well in fact. Only the only time i've ever spoke to somebody who was puerto rican didn't really converse. English was really much much older ones. Sometimes if i go to the bodega which is a store. Like a puerto rican store. You might have somebody behind the counter or even the owner that you know. It's just not a big part of their life. Beginning could care less. You know so. That was like okay. I'll do my best here. But they seem to end.

AIDS seems to have been slow in coming to the southwest of Haiti, that devastated area UNICEF now doing assessments, saying that there are now 500,000 Children without adequate shelter without food without clean water. When you drive by these areas, you see house after house, especially in these mountain villages completely collapsed. And when we spoke to the locals, we noticed that There's nothing there. There was no aid. There were no Tark's. There's no water food being brought to them. There's no insurance whatsoever, and they said they didn't expect to get any not from the government. They hope that maybe NGOs would help. But as far as we have seen help, had not gotten to some of those most remote villages that perhaps needed it most and hospitals right now are slammed. There are patients still coming in. With injuries from the quake. We were at a hospital, a nine year old boy came in with a bilateral pelvic fracture Incredibly painful well over 100. Patients have been medevacked here to Puerto Prince for further treatment. But this is going to last a long time. Matt Gutman, ABC News

And how are you setting about to fix it. It's a great question. And getting into the business being savvy entrepreneurs i'd i i always encourage people to look deeply at the problem. You now think thinking through the obesity of damage. Most people are like. Oh it's personal choice. People just need to pick a salad instead of a mcdonald's big mac and if you look back over history going back to the eighty seventies and even sixties. We didn't have this problem in the united states. It's relatively new problem for us. And the transition that happened in society Which was a fantastic Transition that all of us are in full support of Was that women. Entered the workforce so there was no longer one major member of the household at home cooking three meals a day. Like leave it to beaver style You now have women working right alongside men fifty sixty plus hours a week like like my wife That created a environment in the economy. Where getting food quickly became the key. Thing that americans focused on and that in the late seventies and especially in the eighties and nineties led to the rise of fast food ultimately time became the big factor for people to eat and as that happened You know we started focusing less and less on You know on the health aspect cooking from home and all of those types of things when it comes to eating and more and more on the convenience of food so that was our fix with trifecta as we said how can we be more convenient than fast food. And you know unless you're in puerto rico. Sorry john You know we we shipped the food fully cooked directly to your door.

"There are other people who We're very violent attack the capital building and And they got pardons. And we've been through that before. No such thing happened at the Capitol building this time. There was no explosion. The only shooting was the killing of the protester by Capitol police officer People have not been charged with Weapons violations in the building. Have a group in 1954, Puerto Rican separatists got into the house floor and opened fire with handguns. Five members of the house were wounded in the attack. Wow. And so I thought I'd point all this out. It must be a diversion. It's called history. It's called context. Nobody excuses people who broke into the Capitol building. The problem we have is the lack of equal justice. May I call it equity? So we actually have people who assaulted Police officers burned buildings. Attacked federal law enforcement and a federal courthouse for three months in a row. For which there were almost no consequences. That's the biggest problem. Don't know how many of them were put in solitary confinement for months. Do you? I don't know how many of them were charged with trespassing. Do you?

"Tanya there is a renewed focus on femicide in puerto rico but this is of course sadly not a new phenomenon. What is your earliest memory of stories. Like this is actually a story. My grandmother told me when she was very young. She married a someone else not not my grandfather. So she's this young wife. She has two small girls and her husband used to lock her up in the house. She told me this story and she was not being. She was not even resentful. She was just telling me this story about her first husband and how he would leave to work and leave her locked up. She was saying how silly he was so jealous. Like that right so for me. I was terrified. The idea that someone else who loves me an adult and in her house because he was jealous. Someone will look at me are for me. It was a -rageous. But i don't remember voice saying that to her because she was so matter-of-fact about it and that's the earliest memory i have. I was thought nine a grueling me. And how normalize it was for several generations in my in my country. We culture that men do that women. Draw a line for me as you see it from that story to how we're still talking about femicide in the year. Twenty twenty one. I think we've overcome some obstacles. But sometimes i think everything that has been gains always the parable of being lost so way not on we have to fight key what we gain but also to forward was boulder and expensive ways off noli dealing move. The problem itself generates violence vosa with naming storytelling. It's how do you tell the story of the victim. Why do you say deaths and you don't say homicide because i'm raising a daughter and sometimes i terrified that she's going to go out in a world that doesn't think of her as full human.

"And I'm Sasha Pfeiffer, A team of U. S. Security officials has landed in the Haitian capital of Puerto Prince this after Haiti's president Juvenal Luis, was assassinated by a hit squad in his home last Wednesday. Haiti's interim prime minister asked the U. S for help with the investigation into the murder. He's also asking for U. S troops to help protect the country's ports, airports and key infrastructure. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. That request is being reviewed here. He is on Fox News Sunday. I don't know that we're at a point now where we can say definitively that our national security is being put at risk by what's happening there. But clearly we value our Haitian partners. We we value, stability and security in that country, and that's why we want to send a team down there to help them get their arms around exactly what happened. And what's the best way forward. NPR's Jackie Northam has been following developments as they unfold. She joins us now and and Jackie. Haitian authorities have arrested a third person with US ties as a suspect in the assassination. Could you tell us more about that? Sure, yes. Haiti's national police chief held a press conference last night and he said the man they have arrested is a Haitian born doctor who is based in Florida. The police chief said the man arrived in Haiti on a private plane in June and had arranged her.

Give us you know those things and then there are groups that are like forget the. Us we wanna be our own entity. We went our own sovereignty. So we want us out of puerto rico. So there's this kind of back and forth between the people on the island to but in it addition to that the economy has dwindled drastically. And so there's a migration and there was a big migration of Puerto ricans into the. Us the continental us. Starting i. i believe it was the around the fifties and it was actually A larger group of people more there was a little bit of a migration in the thirties. Too but it became massive by the time like us. Industries were there and 'cause there was a point where puerto rico was had about A thousand factories that were owned by the us and they were exporting things. So this was not something that was benefiting the puerto rican economy. It was just again. Utilizing puerto ricans to export goods for the prophet of private companies. So this again brings down the value of island and the puerto rican people lose their autonomy. Basically i think that If my memory server me correctly the this migration of puerto rican people was the first migration to migrate by plane so they were the first people who flew out of their island to to the us to escape poverty and to find work basically because they're island was being ravaged thoughts. Sorry i was letting you go. You're going on there Yeah i mean just like any kind of immigration story..

"Earthquakes can can be devastating an again being from california and dealing with them in the past the most damage on earth we can do is in areas that are not retrofitted or not prepared for that and the because of as you're gonna find out in the history of puerto rico Th the territory has never been even. Though they're they're americans. They have never been treated like that. Absolutely the government of the united states right so there hasn't they have their own taxation their own like have their own Colorado anything regulations. I'm not sure exactly. What regulations situation is there. But i know that businesses were always like entice to go there. I mean by that. I mean industries to basically exploit the land and the people because they can get away with things that they wouldn't be able to get away and mainland because regulations so needless to say there's no real retrofitting and that's where the damage really comes in. You know if you have you know in in san francisco and bay when eighty nine. The problem with the houses that collapsed were on landfill. Right wasn't on that field. Pretty much retrofitted didn't necessarily get as much damage that you know so Needless to say there's there's a. There's this misconception by. I guess americans. In general that puerto ricans are not american. But they are they are right so whenever and this is something that i kinda like maybe in a on a kind of get upset by on a personal level is when whenever you have Any event happen around the world. The big emphasis. How many americans either injured or parish right right lane crashes or you know some kind of event where you know. People are in other countries. So that's always a thing but they're on the way things are set up here. They don't think of americans. as you. Allegra or maybe puerto ricans or people who are were black in this country who are non white. And that's usually how the media portrays it. So that's the thing that's kinda irritates me and then when you think about people in island suffering from the hurricane in two thousand seventeen yes and now we have this. Earthquakes mean natural disasters happen. Heck there's a place called tornado alley in this country right You know hurricanes happening in southern saathi states this country. The aid comes when the when it's needed right sometimes later than others depending on who is in charge and because they don't you know it's it's always a lot of money when it's considered a to help people is never a lot of money when we wanna start a war absolutely. There's never a shortage of money when war's declared or military some kind of military that happens But these are people who are suffering and they need help so as of four hours from this ago from this podcast and this today is The fourteenth tuesday the fourteenth so as of I wanna say Five pm eastern standard time..
