US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration

"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

Did Biden Create the Current Border Crisis?

"In actual crisis is happening at our southern border according to the washington post. They're now calling it a crisis. The united states at currently holds three percent more miners in adult detention centers at under joe biden than it did at any time. During the trump administration members all kids in cages for donald trump will now thirty percent. More kids are being held in cages. By joe biden. Apparently it's not a crisis. According to joe biden and team according to the washington post however the magnitude of the crisis facing biden at the mexico border came into clearer. Focus on wednesday as the new administration was holding record numbers on a migrant teens and children in detention cells for far longer than legally allowed and federal health officials fell further behind in their race to find space for them in shelters. But here's the thing is not a crisis that faces biden. it is a crisis created by biden. The wave of migrants. They are attempting to get in because they believe. That biden is about to amnesty them. And everybody acknowledges it's a crisis but you have to know that this is a crisis that was created solely and specifically by the by the white house which of course the reason why the biden white house refuses to acknowledge that it is a crisis in the first place. The washington post is now called it a crisis. Cnn now calls it a crisis. According to fox news there have now been one hundred thousand border encounters in february. That is a one hundred percent increase over the prior year. That is solely and completely judy. Joe biden but over and over and over again the biden administration has not a crisis a. Here's white house border coordinator roberta jackson. She refuses to say that. It's a crisis a crisis. Of course would you describe what's happening on the as a crisis given how these numbers are spiking still watch week. I think i really. I'm not trying to be cute here. But i think the fact of the matter is we have to do what we do. Regardless of what anybody calls the situation and the fact is we are all focused on improving the situation on changing to a more humane and efficient system. Well it's crisis and by the way we can say humane and efficient system. You mean is you're just going to release people into the interior that's all you mean the reason that unaccompanied minors are showing up at the border you have to wonder why unaccompanied minors is. Because they're not going to be ported is because they're going to be allowed into the country and everybody knows this and this is why i mean she. She basically acknowledges this right for. Jackson says you know these surges the surge is that are happening. It's because they're responding to hope that is correct. Their hope is. They will be given amnesty. Because joe biden will give them amnesty. We've seen surges before surges tend to respond to hope and there was a significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of you know pent up demand. I think what we are doing is making sure that we respond to that. Hope for people who need protection. We respond to that hope in a way that their cases can be adjudicated more quickly.

Thousands of migrants crossing US border overwhelm government agents

"Now. The situation along the US Mexico border law enforcement officials have encountered more than 100,000 immigrants at the board of this past month, a number that the White House doesn't admit has been quote overwhelming. Ambassador Roberta Jacobson is a special assistant to the president. She previously served as the U. S envoy to Mexico, adding to the problem, more immigrants a rapid influx of unaccompanied migrant Children. More from today's briefing. President Biden when he was vice president visited the region many times, and it's clear eyed about the challenge, he insists. Now, as he did, then the government's commit to being true partners in creating the conditions for growth and security. But I want to emphasize that the funds were asking for from Congress don't go to government leaders, they go to communities to training to climate mitigation to violence prevention to anti gang programs. In other words, they go to The people who otherwise migrate in search of hope, and they will have to have the participation of the private sector's in those countries who for too long have evaded taxes, underpaid workers and failed to be part of the solution to creating safe, prosperous and democratic countries. We've already begun specific actions to both undo the previous administration's policies and to advance a new vision of immigration. We have ended the so called migrant protection protocols, which sent people Back to Mexico to wait sometimes for years for a chance to present their asylum claims. Working with the government of Mexico, international organizations and NGOs. We have safely admitted over 1400 migrants and closed the most dangerous face of the MPP, The Matamoros migrant camp. Today We're announcing the restarting of the Central American Minors program for Children to be reunited with the parent who is legally in the United States. This program was ended abruptly by The previous administration, leaving around 3000 Children already approved for travel stranded in Phase two. We will be working to improve the camp program to expand safe and legal avenues for to the United States. I want to be clear neither in this neither this announcement nor any of the other measures suggests that anyone, especially Children, and families with young Children should make the dangerous trip to try and enter the U. S in an irregular Fashion. The border is not open going forward. We will continue to look for ways to provide legal avenues in the region for people needing protection. While we continue to enforce our laws. This is a process. We have a great deal to do. But this administration has made significant progress and we will continue to do so. It reflects who we are, as Americans putting our values at the center of our

"We're gonna be talking dot net and the cloud and a very aware as we've regarding the so we're recording this nineteen of november twenty twenty. Don't that five is not very long. It's been out for about a week or two week. Old week-old excellent. I mean the have been the they release candidates but this is like the official as he is here so i'm likely going to end because obviously because of the time cast pop machine whibley. We're recording this in advance of time. So there's likely going to be time. Tony said hey. So when dot net call superseded by don't at five so please bear that in mind everyone who's listening we're regarding this couple months ahead of time but So festival before we talk about anything right. You've set yourself you've been in this this whole this industry for for almost twenty years right to vote for me. I'm you know. That's that's i mean for anyone. That's a long time right. That's that's a whole bunch of innovation that has happened since then like twenty years ago with talking about dot net was like an intranet based technology for inside of the business and now it runs a huge portion of the web. You've got as you. all suppose azure. I'm not sure how. What the official brennan nell right or wrong way okay. So we've got as your as you that that whole thing. And that's that's running dot net presumably or you can ruin your dot net thing on it and and we've gone from like i say we've gone from small web services to scaled micro services and video games and consoles all running dot net. You can never internet on fridge which is just blows my mind. I've gotta got a bunch of raspberry pies somewhere around here that are controlling my bet soon. I just bought a house. So we're excited about you. Know making our whole house smart enabled so i'm excited to start using dot net korir on a bunch of raspberry pies and the you know controlling controlling how long my stepdaughter gets to use the internet. So it's gonna be fun. It's brilliant is one of these technologies the just scales almost everywhere. Are you talked about the raspberry. Pi oko another respite. Pi four hundreds pien inside of a keyboard Is one big folk kit. And i've been using that to do sorts of crazy don net things of the past weekend. I'm teaching roberta. Who's not a developer code with it so it was like. Hey come on what i do. And he's just just the keyboard and while he came over before they Before the unfortuna- say over in the uk. We've had like a lockdown so nobody can go anywhere and so he came over a few days before that and we couldn't get a moment times we staying here for the duration so by the time you're listening to this. Hopefully he's going home. I thought to keep me busy. Teach him to wrestle. Code is totally all right. That's that's fun but then so if we're looking at almost twenty years in the industry what a in your opinion. Some of these innovations that have really changed the game. I mean we talked about chaperone being collaborative bringing everyone together. Dot net clearly has changed a whole bunch of stuff. Is it purely a microsoft thing you thinking or is it just a his aesthetic. I think for me. I i love tech but i also love the people in tack and i think for me. What's with what i've loved. That's change is sort of how we work together. So i remember when i first started in tak started a working for this We built the first installation of of of this insurance company allstate s- Their first online web presence So we built their i kind of web application and bad took hundreds and hundreds of people and it was all these very very very siloed teams. Right there is a huge team of leg database administrators. I have no idea what they did. There is a huge infrastructure team. And i have no idea i i mean i got a chance to like talk to some of them. But there's a huge infrastructure team. There is a huge Devops will be call them the the bill guys but the cuge build than a team and there was all these teams That came together to build this amazing web application but we were all really really really siloed. I felt like and It was such a very everything was so very very very specialized whereas you flash forward today and I feel like the development team and You know infrastructure engineers and Site reliability engineers while there there's different fancy titles for everyone but that teams like shrunk significantly and and and you know we all work really really well together. it's not kind of this like staunchy kind of separation of people it's it's a much more collaborative team. We work much closer together Because i think the tools and technologies have evolved in such a way that everyone can kind of sort of work together much better. So i think that part's been super super exciting. And because of that we were able to get you know it's it's more satisfying you can see applications getting released. You know all the time. I mean you get huge. Companies like netflix. They're releasing features like every day. So it's really exciting to see the pace and end the change of how like software and how technology evolves and then. I also think Just be the the amount of information and of you know how to get Involved in tak It's come to a place where i'm excited that so many people like you're talking about your brother. You're literally decision whom how to code and so literally you know a cup. After lockdown he can apply at microsoft and get a job at burnside. Apply to microsoft. So i i love this. I love this. I love because of i came from. I originally from chicago came from you. Know modest modest family and a lot of people around me or modest living. And so i really loved that technology has started to become a equalizer providing a lot more people opportunities To be able to code be able to change and thereby getting great jobs and then they're thereby kind of really changing their lives so it's not. I love seeing really kind of technology for all encoding for all This whole push for that. That's what's really got me like super excited about this industry now.

Seattle to open more permanent COVID-19 vaccination sites in Rainier Beach, West Seattle, Lumen Field Event Center

"Been reporting how seattle is turning some of its testing sites into permanent vaccination sites starting today the rainier beach side is prepared to give about two thousand shots a week and so is second location in west seattle. Kyw's josh amac nickeled visited the rainier beach vaccination clinic today joshua high and describe this vaccination site for us well like every other side. It's open to people who are eligible. Mostly that means seniors over sixty five but there are a few other categories to like home health workers anyway. Everyone who shows up here has an appointment and they walk up and they check in at a table and then when it's their turn they passed. They passed through one of several shipping containers on a train or on the back of a truck and inside there is an administrator in a little booth. And there's someone from the fire department and that person gives you your shot and then you walk out the back of the shipping container into an outdoor area and then you hang out under a tent for like fifteen minutes with a view of the lake all right well. Did you get to speak to anyone there. Yeah i spoke to a lot of seniors there in the recovery tent. And they told me before today trying to get a vaccination appointment was a real chore. Roberta bird right said she couldn't sleep. She wanted an appointment so badly. Given times i wake up you know in the morning. Three o'clock two o'clock in during the throughout the day. And then of course the site that we look. It's like places. Like well up in tacoma and you know really far out. And i'm not going to those places so i just kept looking and looking so now opened up so she also got on wait lists at pharmacies and they told her they'd call but they never did and then she heard from a friend that the southeast seattle senior center was helping seniors make appointments and so she called. They called me back right away like within a few days and schedule being. I'm here bird right. Told me that she had concerns about the safety of the vaccine so it was reassuring for her to go through a community group. Yeah that's good news that roberta got her shot. And just you know. We've been hearing stories about grandkids helping their grandparents schedule. An appointment you know for a variety of reasons you know. Maybe the grandparents don't have a smartphone or computer or maybe like roberta's case the the grandparents are trying to just striking out but in this case it sounds like the senior center is stepping in. Yes and that is the strategy here. They're still far more demand for vaccines than there is supply and so these new vaccination sites are favoring referrals they're working closely with community groups and those groups are doing the outreach. Linda green runs the southeast seattle senior center. That's the group that helped this person earlier. Find their appointment and she says she got her staff spending all their time. Basically going after vaccination appointments for seniors. But it's hard because there just aren't enough vaccines so she said it feels like a competition. Well it's a competition because now we're have folks who are competing you've got the folks who are seventy five years old and older. We've got the sixty five year old. We've got those folks who are under fifty but are also caretakers for those who are sixty five and over or seventy and over. And i know that we have to start from the top the most vulnerable and work our way down but it still is somewhat competitive as to. Who's going to get it first. So all of those those areas we still have to define but we are of the opinion that the goal is for everyone to get vaccinated so whomever we can fit into that classification. That's what we're doing. Yeah and in that competition for vaccines. It helps to have a community group to help you get an appointment. But eventually officials tell me the problem will cease to be a vaccine shortage problem and will become a communication problem. You know trying to get enough people to show up and use all the vaccines right. And we're hearing. There will be more and more vaccinations slots opening up later as well and and another thing. We learned today. Josh was later this month. There's going to be another max. Vaccination site opening up in seattle At the former centurylink field now known as linfield yes and with that site. They're going to start small in the middle of the month but as soon as enough vaccines are on the way that site will be able to push out twenty one thousand vaccinations per day. They told me yeah. That sounds like a lot of shots. When is that going to be. They wouldn't say for sure. Only the it'll happen as soon as possible. And if you're a senior and you want to be proactive linda. Green at the southeast seattle senior center says give them a call. And they'll help you. You don't even have to be in seattle proper anywhere in king. County is fine and then of course you can also use the washington phase finder website. Which helped at least one senior here today.

Holy shit that's a lot. Urban box even points the finger at donald wayne robin as the killer. Robert was at the daniels home on the day of the sling to retrieve videotapes. But said robin at went into the house. And talk to the defendant terry on the telephone. Revenues fingerprints were found on the telephone in the kitchen. Rabbinate denied that he and the victim were involved romantically. Box accused Of changing his story and blamed investigators for not testing blood samples and investing roberts money boot prints and pickup trucks. David sol's the oklahoma state. Bureau of investigations case agent said robina was eliminated partly suspect because terry daniel i said. He saw his wife alive after visit. Because someone can't come back later what the fuck. They're saying that it's it's possible that she was having an affair with this weight. Robin net. He was in her fucking house that day she was murdered. They have someone who can testify to that because he spoke to him in his house on the day of the murder. They have his fingerprints in his house on the day of the murder. Why was he not fully investigated. Why did he call terry from his own home. Okay so i saw this somewhere else. And this is uncorroborated Because it's was just like read it chatter but someone in total hearsay. But someone said that Terry had actually called home to check in on his wife and talk to her and he while he was talking to her heard a man's voice in the background and got upset and then she was like. Oh it's just on and he was like what do you mean is just on don came by to get some video tapes from the house and he's here and so we'll fuck put him on the phone and so he talked to warm. All that is still like pretty fishy. I think all of that as she. The whole damn thing is fishy. The man just happened just happened to call at the same time this guy was there. I don't know. I wonder if they have our neighbor situation. I'm just saying the it's like there's some weird shit was not fully investigated. I'm allegedly talked to her on the phone. Yeah it kind of seems like some bad investigating on us be part then again. We're no stranger to that. So let's just fucking what if it was these two men. What if he was having an affair and they're both like fucker. She told me she was leaving you. You know. I don't know it's very possible. No it's very strange because scorned women of done a similar thing like group together. Yeah i mean it's it's even possible. He that terry was just jealous when he called and this man was there he was purely a family friend but still i mean that could have set him into a rage maybe he came home later in and like was all over her case about it and then killed her or or maybe he really was at work in this other guy waited until like later came back then killed her because she wouldn't leave her husband or something like who fucking knows. None of this was investigated properly. I feel like there's too many. What ifs and there shouldn't be that many whatevs because this is not like collectible evidence. You can't blame it on like times. You know what i mean like own. Dna wasn't really prominent or whatever it doesn't matter like this is just pure simple investigating.

"Something you do kinda like insurance fraud. No you know what i mean. Yeah like insurance fraud. If the business wasn't doing well and nathan went missing. But i wouldn't you just like if you're going to like say you hired somebody to rob your own house then. Why wouldn't you tell them to just frigging keep like melted down or something. I don't know so the blaine county. Sheriff's office called in the oklahoma state bureau of investigation and daniel says the fbi agent focused on only him as the main suspect to the detriment of other evidence. Oh my god. At the time of bobby's death. There was a five hundred thousand dollar life insurance policy. That had been taken out on. Bobby only a few months earlier. Which listed terry as the first beneficiary by the time he was able to collect on the insurance many in december of eighty eight with interest. It had grown to about a million dollars. The couple didn't have children together. But terry daniel has to from a previous marriage and roberta daniel left behind a daughter. The three children are the secondary beneficiaries on the life insurance policy. Diss wasn't the first time terry had taken out a life insurance policy on her in the summer before the victim's death daniel purchase five hundred thousand dollars life insurance policies for himself and his wife. The life insurance agents said he saw daniel hundred thousand dollar life insurance policy in nineteen eighty seven after about a year or said the policy was dropped because the defendant failed to make monthly payments. The business been going downhill by then. Said howard hurts to who owned an insurance company in downtown tonga for twenty one years. The sad thing is nobody really had a chance to know her. She wasn't from around here daniels. Financial problems apparently started with trouble in the family's jewelry business. In woodward it was called north ups the defendant expected to inherit the one hundred year old business along side his parents for years. But things change. John floyd daniel junior at the defendant's father testified about the turmoil in the business wants the defendants new wife. Roberta who is known as bobby started working in woodward storm. Bobby daniel was fired because of the way. She treated a customer in front of him in his wife. John daniels said after that he said he decided against giving terry daniel the business. In fact terry bobby. Daniel bought another jewelry store in what tonga and moved what. You're going to withhold an entire inheritance and fire this girl like no action or coaching. Or maybe let's give her a second chance like talk to her. Why me like. Maybe they already had it out for her. They didn't like her for some reason. One of those kind of situations and they were just kind of looking for a reason. You know. I mean to tell him. His entire inheritance is now defunct shitting. That's insane to me and like what. How are you like. i'll blame them. For ruben away. I'd fuck move away to get a lot. Further than with tonga. Good lord there around twenty two other suspects in the case all of which were cleared by os except for terry. Here's your in loves park. Okay so one of the suspects which was a friend of the daniels. His name was donald. Wayne rub net. He was even accused of having an affair with bobby. So so terry. So claims to this day that he surreal killer in the case and i went over a lot of different files a lot of different news stories and in like every single one and he is pointing the finger at the sky. So there wasn't any evidence found that would implicate donald In friends and family stuff like that. They all had denied this affair. But there was the issue of bobby. Apparently telling her close friend a couple of weeks before her death that she was afraid for her life. This friend port. She said that she wouldn't really say why. She was afraid for her life but said that bobby had told her that she was extremely happy in her marriage was happy. She was happy in her marriage but that she like kind of felt like somebody was watching her or stalking her and she was kind of getting fearful. Okay if you called me and you told me that you thought you were afraid to be home alone on and on and such and then you just kept telling me. But i'm really happy in my marriage i'll be like why are why do you keep saying that reiterating. The fact like i wasn't. I didn't assume that you weren't happy in your marriage until like now i'm questioning the hecht because you're saying it so much and this is like the vibe that i'm getting from this like she just kept telling this friend how happy she was in her marriage. She'd never been happier and then she would say. But then i'm afraid from is the defendant's aunt sharon said the victim told her about animals. Okay this is a little gruesome said. Didn't put the details in there about animal. I'm like she's laid on her throat was cut and she had a knife inner ribcage and the only god. I can't get this. we're here anyways so. She had testified that someone had butchered her pets like just like in the movie fatal attraction and she literally said just like the movie fatal attraction. And that bobby was concerned about living in the house during the last part of nineteen eighty-seven okay. Why would we bring up the movie fatal attraction here reference there plenty of movies where maybe animals get. Fatal attraction did come out in nineteen eighty seven and this was happening hers and relevant. Yeah i was extremely relevant at the time. Someone's mimicking people copycat canadian guy.

DOJ appeals ruling preventing it from replacing Trump in E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit

"A judge's refusal to let the United States replace President Donald Trump as the defendant and a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says Trump raped her in the 19 nineties. Department attorneys notified US District Judge Lewis Kaplan of its plans today to ask the second U. S Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to consider the judge's decision. Judge Kaplan concluded last month and a written decision That Trump's June 19th statements about columnists aging Carol did not constitute an official act of the presidency and we're outside the scope of his employment. This president Substituting for the United States for Trump would leave taxpayers responsible for any possible payout in the case. Carroll's attorney, Roberta Kaplan, said in the statement that the Justice Department appeal was not a surprise because from the start of the case, she said Donald Trump's number one goal has been to avoid discovery and cause delay. She said. It remains to be seen if the new attorney general will agree that Trump was acting within the scope of his employment is president when he defamed her client. Justice Department attorneys say as president Trump had to respond in June of last year to accusations Carol made against him and a book because the claims related to his fitness for office. Carol has said Trump raped her and a luxury department store dressing room a quarter of a century ago after they randomly crossed path and engaged in a conversation. Trump said Carol was totally lying to fell a memoir and that he'd never even met her. Although the 1987 photo shows them and their then spouses at a social event, Trump said the photo captured a moment when he was just standing in a line.

"The episode Michael I really enjoyed that it opened up a lot of questions today about early medical transition. You know I sort of mentioned earlier like we have these examples of the fellow plastic and I honestly am not sure if gillies basically like figured out a method of doing badgen apostate by himself or if he had heard of other ones what. But. Obviously, after the first someone has the second plsy and the third or the fourth and the feared, and that is the history that I really couldn't find kind of like googling quickly oldest trying to dig into it. Negative accuster side really liked to look into that in the future. So I really enjoyed this for that reason and also like I agree with essentially everything into. Said about Roberta as a complicated figure who we can nevertheless be happy for mom in that, she got to the life and I say this to excuse any of the things she did that would potentially hall who to other people but I feel like there were times when the fact that she was such a complicated missy person I feel like this about Michael Dillon has. Just made her seem like song human and so Rio and I felt like really really close to her, even she would not want me to because I'm trying. As a transit ancestor effectively. Yeah. Yeah. This upset has definitely made me more emotional than expecting. Just, the fact that she passed away in tiny eleven is well like the knowledge that we could have sat and had a to compensate together again she. Did Not want that. Yeah, yeah. So that's Nice I hadn't planned to include it but I'd like to actually read you the court that whom memoir ends on. Now while we're like happy genda filming titus. Rebecca ends him was we describing herself getting ready for the first like dance abortion going to as a woman and so she kind of gets ready and then she describes herself going into and being nervous but like stealing herself and then she is affable and she's dancing and everything is good and she says, now I'm dancing and all the blood in my body, his turned to music the pastors forgotten the future doesn't matter and the glowingly happy president is even better than I had hoped I myself.

Thank you for having more sense than I did. Every time I got patrons to build on something. They never pick what I expect them to, and it's always wild. It's great. Thank you.

"Including photographs of the two of them together just like having a nice time in Europe. In Paris and With the leading our Pisa Style, do I do that one fighter? If they do, I have not seen it but I would love to see Roberta Lake you're standing in the wrong place to be the the tower either. When. They were in Paris Roberta reflected on the time that she had been there as a liberator as a soldier and on how different her experiences of being in. Paris. When now on how far she had in life which was nice or what alive might go that seems so long I'm like, oh. Yes. She knew the in Paris with this is actually like that was like a decade now she's just had such a wild. Decade Yeah. During transition kept in touch with their parents but she hadn't seen them for quite a long time and it was only offer she heads transition into that she decided they should be effectively reintroduced a meeting with the parents is something that she was very, very nervous about and their relationship was awkward at first. But at least as she tells us day eventually become quite close again, she just continues a relationship with a family. Which I hope you try. Good. So one of the things that she talks about in. Of Her life sort of just post her finishing transition is the mental effort that she put into lining to present in a way that was convincingly feminine. And sort of traditionally feminine and the energy put into curbing mannerisms interests that will unacceptably masculine same hot someone who was such ICAGO? Yes. Indeed. Yeah. Like he's GonNa have to reinvent her entire sense. Yeah. Sorry. I. Kind of just wanted to mention this because like it's something that I feel like early trans people often kind of like criticized for or like not even necessarily as like apparently negative has criticized, but it's darted the transpeople in Sierra like are often quiet, traditionally masculine, feminine and. Sometimes people who are saying that like just toasts to be clear who would like painting Trans Women is being very official Ahmad but especially given the way rebuttal presents elsewhere. I was surprised about how much new and say was in her memoir about how she felt about like gender roles and like trying to live up to generals and say that especially because like Rebecca was avowedly not a feminist, she didn't agree with that kind of thing but. It's clear that she at least with herself had a bit more of a complicated relationship for example, here's a quote from him. She says in the beginning I had overcompensated, I'd been to feminine I'd been playing a feminine role instead of acting like a feminine person who had like every human being some contradictory strikes pass analogy I had studied every feminine skill frivolous ones as well as important ones as if each new thing I learned while another Beza stand in the possible I needed for entry into the world of womankind bit by bit I've found myself. Associate has his period wishes really trying to live up to this rigid idea of what she has to the woman. But every time she kind of just settles into being type of woman that is natural for her. and. There's much more about that in the memoir. But yeah, I wanted to know that a something of interest and also as kind of moved into the pot of the episode where we're happy for a best. One tonight, it's good that she ends up in an expression of itself. It feels like natural goods to her yet let is really nice to hear definitely resonates with of discussion of senior transpeople. Palais go through the transition. It is something that I wished I was kind of more space for transport pro to talk about openly because like basically frankly just people are just very unforgiving and how they do with Trans People and particularly Trans Women talking about their relationship to traditional generals and the Mice Trans People have pretty complicated interesting relationship with those things. But it's a compensation than is often publicly suppressed to be because of how people are so willing to twist it as like Oh you naturally Feminine Your Trans Woman while the annual dislike faking femininity to mimic womanhood in your more masculine than you're not really women like that, and it's just like obviously disgusting rhetoric bet it means that trans people want it will. Talk about those things as much as you. would be good. Unfortunately, Roberta did how financial difficulties seem afford in life in nineteen fifty eight, she declared bankruptcy with a debt of twelve thousand pounds or three hundred thousand dollars today effectively that was just because she couldn't find a way to make money she wanted to work. But no, one would hire her. She told the London Times in Nineteen, sixty two whoever I watched for would have the spotlight on them I find it virtually impossible to get a salary job because there would inevitably publicity and she had to depend on her parents support her but. As She does come from quite a privileged background than she does have that support. So. Thankfully, she is able to still like Lutheran get by in nineteen, fifty two, she had dissolved. The engineering companies should founded when she would never design an engine or rice in major events. Again, this is likely because she didn't want to be drawing attention to herself in circles at the time when she was still transitioning will. At once you transitions obviously, it would be more difficult for her to be accepted in that like hyper masculine world and the way she presents it in her memoir that she kinda stops being interested in traditionally masculine field of 'cause but that's not true. She was still very interested in college she's a cargo. Hodgkinson notes that she was just like mad about 'cause when they knew each other apartment was just like crammed full. Caps and stuff. and. Indeed Lee, rebutted demand race again a few times. So nine, hundred, Fifty, eight, for example, she did hill-climb at shows. Walsh was to share and she does a few things like that over the years. But in general after this time, she sort of just fades from public view and she lives a very quiet life. As I noted, Elliot's she had two daughters and daughters as they become adults tried to get in contact with Roberta and rebutted just never responded which a great deal of pain and one of her daughter's is Ian the documentary. that. I've mentioned talking about her parents and how her she respected parents without being able to transition in what she had to do and wishing that they have been able to reconnect in adulthood but sally, that didn't happen. So Yup, rebuttal lived a pretty quiet life with a fairly small social circle. As I noted, she lived for lay some of her life growing into old age with Lisa but Lisa passed in two thousand nine and then Roberto lived alone until she passed away himself in October of twenty eleven at the age of ninety. Three. Yeah, only a few people attended her funeral as how death was not publicized apparently at her request her death actually was on the reported in the newspapers two years later in two, thousand, eight, hundred pain, and this spurred a bit of a revival of interest in Bata. I guess eventually culminating in the Twenty fifteen documentary that I've mentioned a few times but overall like remains a pretty underrecognized piece of transgender history and suddenly something that I was aware of because we didn't have set Michael Dillon but not like in a big way I didn't know that much about her Sir I'm glad to. Learn. More in this episode and I hope you guys way too. Yeah obviously. Heard Michael. A very important part of kind of trans medical history that the absolutely stunning obviously as people Labor's a very interesting and. Whilst yet, we have been critical of Rebecca. Times. In this episode as we've also stated at times. She was dealing with a very tough environment as trans people continue to deal with today. And she made choices some of which are off fairly reasonably open to criticism to survive in that situation like I'm really happy as said Elliot that she was able to live as herself as museum for a significant period of time off the. Transitioning weathering store criticism the Cam Hawaii when that was portrayed in the press. I was really excited to talk about our BETTA because all the episodes on transitory that I've done at least I have tended to focus on people with the exception of Michael. Dillon. Did Not medically transition is because they leave too early or just because they want to access that and the conversations we've had in those episodes about trans history have been quite different often focused around those questions will how do we prove this trans? How do we do Trans History outside of the? Very recognized mainstream accepted to a degree on standing of essentially like the transsexual, and it was really interesting to dig back into this with a more thorough sort of more analytical look than what we did..

"I really want to get a hold of a biography of him and read it at some point because I understand pioneered a lot of he was doing just as he went like there's a particular line in Kennedy's overfeed that really deceased my imagination about how he was operating like other are. Some insane amount of hours a day chain-smoking owners, ofttimes sketching noises on the backs of envelopes because a lot of his work was in reconstructing high-seas from soldiers who'd been deformed by the war and. What a madman I love it. Yeah. I really want to dig around in what he was doing because I frankly are like, did he just operate on these transpeople ordered he keep doing? What yeah, obviously you know he was at least some level of accepting of these transfers. Clearly to some extent, there was just a kind of medical curiosity thing going on here. Sorry he was doing that and then the next day Roberta came to the hospital and checked in and prepared for the operation and he did it again on living person and thankfully it was a success. I'm really glad that all the risky surgeries that this woman got like radical contraband. Surgeries. Why Kaplan yeah freely, glass. Very lucky in that regard. Yes. So she wakes up two days after the surgery and they tell a she has vagina panchev recovers in hospital two weeks and she goes I've been vagina now that's. The way she talks about this on him nyu she refers to it as as surgery to correct the congenital absence of China would gina. Truly incorrect yeah. As much as I think some of Elisa harmful to other transpeople and therefore I'm not a huge fan. Of Aspects of instincts, people, sex me I do kind of somewhat respect. The very judicious use of the past invoice just kind of like Oh. Yeah. Lead the audience passive. The passive voice gets a work in all of. This she also returned to delays to get a nurse job end to have her lips operated onto make fuller. How full ellipse what do we distinct women have because we make generally Is. They don't but I'm basically nothing like literally nothing that's fair I. Don't I just feel like sometimes I love and things like talk to people who on hormones and they're like Oh. Yeah. Now I'm having this experience and I'm like, Oh, I thought the fact that are only one experience with a stereotype. Okay, and that is quite a thing i. like that about how? Is Like didn't cry and Yeah I was like Oh. Wow. Look it. Now I can finally remain competitive while watching the amazing and beautiful films spirits dying similar sorry Madam Anyway, I, also kind of respect the way we're GonNa talk about this kind of calling back to how she talks about how she became shorter. But in a way that meant that it looked like logo legs, she says the plan therefore was to have my face drastically altered by surgery. This would remove all residual traces of masculinity and will leave me of the field that would be recognized incidentally, I could be made better looking good. I mean I, guess if I'm getting excited on my face as well. And essentially what she's doing there as having facial feminization surgery and it is very funding for her and I support that but also like. If. I was really hot and she went off to that. As sort of insinuated there, all of the surgery she house give a immense change to her psychological state and just sort of like general mental health end her. And Rebecca present said it's now that she's able to stop presenting full-time as a woman and she just does that she goes about a lack of woman and lives as a woman for the rest of my life I'm so glad last. -pletely without judgment in this one instance yet. The. This in the fifties she lives in La Fifty Years Yeah like that's just amazing when she eventually passes away she's ninety three. So. We'll get into your life isn't like necessarily easy or anything like that. But like nothing traumatic is going to happen like she just like kind of lives ally laughter this point and how. Much it now that's nice. But I. In. One thousand, nine, hundred fifty three Christine Jorgensen arrives back in the USA from Copenhagen. Earn surgery and the tabloids go into a frenzy and she becomes a celebrity in nineteen fifty four no-doubt sort of partly spurred by this new interest in transgender women. Roberta lands at earn story is about to blow up in the press and by the spring of Nineteen fifty four, she had sold her story twenty thousand pounds. So, we don't know how the press found out about. Roberta Kennedy flights idea that Rebecca told them herself she was in dire need of money and this would allow her to be the first person to tell has story but ultimately we are and I frankly feel like I have enough of a handle on how this one feels about like. Telling, his story and control information, and so forth to even speculate. So I've had to move along hang. That's fair. Yeah, and the store she tells them that memoir is essentially the story that we've been telling over the course of this episode and it's a big sensation in Britain at the time almost every major newspaper runs the story and sort of just repeats what is in her memoir and historical also published in the United States Rebecca added, time? Gone sees she decided to not be in Britain run the story, which was a good idea I think and so that's scouring London for like anyone whom I talk to them his got any relevance to the story. One of the people they speak to your is George Dr, who is the doctor who had sign a letter for to get her sex legally changed and he said that he had intended. Quite, to prove the cow had become physiologically, a complete female was rather in the nature of a working certificate to enable the plastic surgeons to carry out their operations this end, all the information they dig up. So for example, Father also says that when he had examined her as a child, she had been like a normal baby boy and inconsistencies I find in her memoir leads the press to kind of change. Tactics talking about Rebecca and turn changes while Sarah the Victorio. Speculated the Rebecca was quite a trans bestest a man who is compelled by an overwhelming impulse to act as a woman and feels driven to stop at nothing to bring about and encourage.

"Pranks and stuff. Forget seemed like a really good guy. He was a pioneering caustic and reconstructive surgeon and he kind of had this attitude that didn't really matter if a particular surgery was not medically necessary for the patient health if it was going to alleviate like mental distress or discomfort than that was raised in an all, which was quite a radical notion at the time. In some of the patients that Gillies Soul intersex people. So Kennedy gives the example of in nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two who had been assigned female at birth juice. Here you're hot spiders, which is a condition where the opening of the Urethra US along the shaft of the Penis, the base of the penis, and it can sometimes colas the child to be assigned female at birth because it looks similar to evolve and this person had. been assigned female at birth but wanted to live as a man and so gillies performed a minor operation and crucially provided him with the medical documentation necessary to legally changed his sex. And Gillies also diagnosed Michael with hypospadias to provide an excuse to quietly help him to legally transition, and he was obviously willing to pioneer such options as well. Given that Michael was the first trans to receive infallibility. So, our certified Lynch. So that gives you a bit of a glimpse of the possibilities that existed for transmit although that it will bind remains widely exploited or widely available, but things more difficult for Trans Women. That was the law on the books in Britain at the time, which prevented adopt from amputating healthy testicles and saw Roberta could not find a surgeon or a doctor who was willing to help her continue her transition either through surgery will merely through providing the letter that would allow to change the sex. This is a situation choosing when she finds herself stock and out Michael's help Sir unfortunately, Michael's medical connections on of any use tour. Basha Gillies is obviously willing to slow been the law a little bit but this is I guess of a highest severity as potential consequences than I think downside fire he is going to help Rebecca by doing anything that would involve moving testicles. SAR The solution they come up with is that Michael Doesn't himself, and this is evidenced by document that Liz Hodgkinson found in Rebecca's papers. It's a little bit long but I'm just GonNa read you that documented full. Sorry. The document says I. have if I earn free will often persuaded md who I'm aware is an unqualified man, a fifty year medical student to perform an Demi upon me, which is the like proper medical term for the removal of testicles I. Am also aware that his operating experience has been confined solely to assisting in operations resident people in hospital and two one made in the presence of a surgeon, and he is not saying no practices particular operation I desire that he be absolved from all responsibility and his Operation Judah. Possible. Hemorrhage Sepsis, which I am desirous to undergo being fully aware that either might be factual. That's intense. That is pretty intense. Yeah. Yeah. As intense for all parties involved, Yup are we nothing about the circumstances that led to them deciding to do this? Because at some point they have this conversation and then Michael obtained whatever materials when necessary we don't know if he used anesthetic, we don't know where this was done presumably just in his house. but this operation was conducted thankfully. Roberta. Survives. Okay. Sorry. This surgery happens. and. Then, what is to because? Obviously, the surgery is a means to end land is legally changing sex in Roberta's memoir she recounts the Mating with Michael and then she picks up pretty much immediately when she goes to see a doctor who was a college Dr George Sar, and she is examined by the doctor and then he and his colleague go into another room Rebecca claim she could press it you to the door what they said. And what he said is there is not the slightest doubt whatever the patient is quite definitely not a man. She has undoubtedly a woman and a soya agrees to ride medical affidavit and in May of nine hundred, fifty one, she becomes legally female. So just completely skipped side with the fact that she had this operation. To get a legal that she did this. Is a legal in also like it creates an understanding of her being a transgender woman. That she. Doesn't want to get into sex person that she doesn't want to. You know. So like as I said earlier, she doesn't at any point say that she was born without testicles but she does kind of talk around them a lot social. Say I learned that I was somehow producing testosterone apparently from the ADRENAL glands? The version of the Kennedy gives which I assume is just kind of her reading between the lines of this account to what must have happened is that she went to see this doctor hoping that he would examine her and because she had testicles just a to write Ho these documents either because she had fooled him Woah kind of. Just out of the kindness hot essentially. And for whatever reason he does yeah like potentially you know in the same way the gillies. Was Not willing to bend the rules because there was such strict laws around yet schools once they have been removed yet hates now much less of aid risk for that doctor. That Steiner. This law would continue into the nineteen sixties at least end. Kennedy notes that lighter bachelor policies that were performed in Britain, the doctors would not cost abroad So they could be legally investigated for this thing and like probably later on some of these women just had those conduct amies performed by doctors who did their version of Pasta who were willing to lie some of them would've gone to Europe and. Had that operation done and things like that so these are the kind of work around that are being worked dash at this time..

"He's actively planning for the future to the extent that he gives Rutta a written by as he's also I, think a little apparent from his courts Rebecca dozen reciprocate for a few reasons. She says that she doesn't think that had anything in common is also a bit of a condescending streak to how Michael talks to her and some of the letters and she rejects his proposal. She says, presumably, this is quite from a conversation. She had Hutchinson because it's in Hutchinson's biography, but it's not slighted when I realized he was really serious I had to tell him that although I liked and respected him very much cousin there was no possible way I could ever think marrying him. So. That's the account that we get from. Hodgkinson's by and from what I can tell that all seemed to basically be true and it is presented in other versions of the story including the documentary that Hodgkinson was involved in Kennedy's biography of Michael. I. So it's more than Hodgkinson incomplete story rather than like a full-sized. Again as far as I can tell, I only have sources that Hodgkinson is given us. So who knows however I do want to note that it is a little strange that Roberta essentially presented that she didn't think that Michael was serious about wanting to marry her until the proposal as we've heard their Hodgkinson courts let is the evidence that he was quite. Upfront quite honest about this and as Kennedy at points on her biography, he would stand to reason that Michael probably had some reason to believe that was a chance that they would marry given a lot of his behavior at this time. So Michael had photographs of Rebecca up in his apartment which visitors understood was of his fiancee. He'd also taken Roberta to visit his office again with the understanding that she was his fiancee and like. I guess it's possible that he was stoke but I like many women women than I ought to know who have been in this situation where they're friends with a guy. But the got by there's a difference between dieting and engage China difference was less than is now. Yeah. Maybe SAR still having said that I I don't I feel particularly going to visit his family and them taking away from that. This is his fiancee requires a certain amount of like not necessarily reciprocation, but certainly, not any discouragement. Yes it's desperate at nine point. Did she say anything but suggested otherwise Yeah, I also just love for like the way that Hodgkinson phrases. What of this stuff is that Michael acquired for graphs of Russia might take another made the aunts and it again, kind of seemed to me like that playing down of agency that she doesn. and was that just kind of like running along bill yeah obviously today it is quite easy to get a photograph of someone and put up your house if you're a waiter but at this point like Roberta isn't really presenting as feminine in her daily Life She's only out seemingly to at least the into Michael. So if he has a photograph of her lake presenting as a woman, there's really doesn't seem to be plausible sources from that that Bush. Yeah. She's like giving him this from RAF unlike going on trips with him and stuff like that is enough to kind of raise interest in this relationship modify. One of the quotes from Michael early AH referred to. Them getting married once Rebecca was sort of comfortable. MOZELLE and it doesn't strike me as possible. The situation was nine Roberta being close with Michael Than She's climbing. All Michael, being more of a story better than would seem. US In that. I could kind of definitely see scenario where. is still becoming comfortable with a feminine identity and sort of plays along with a low of the kind of trappings of being in A. Traditional relationship with Michael kind of feeling as if it's no one hundred percent real. Then therefore coming to very different conclusions because they kind of at different stages of the transition different kind of perspectives on that relationship oviously a tot where we've already established as a bunch of instances where Ramona has been. Less than honest for tactical reasons seeming ring. Yeah I think with that. It's one of those things where knowing if she was in a long term relationship with someone. Good to know her. Own Little to make it impossible but it's relevant information and we don't really know why I think. It's especially considering like Roberto obviously really wants to present herself as this just like very normal normative conventional woman. And like having a male partner obviously did to that image, she wants to present himself unlike I don't know exactly how the situation with have been but I imagine it would have been quite hard to find assist gender male partner who would kind of extend. Everything. So having my whole would have fitted that life she wanted that image she wanted to project but at the same time, especially, if she wasn't a relationship with Lisa, she may have actually had some misgivings wanted to hold back on that same time. The straightforward reason that I will tell you now that we've discussed a bunch of possibility. For this is that if we go back true was rebuttal, wanted that meeting. In that restaurant is that she was stalking her transition and she wanted to move her along and she didn't know how she contacted. Michael wanting help accessing surgery. So Michael has himself had some really is quite earn for being the first trans man to undergo a fellow. With was performed, by Dr, Harold Gillies Remember. Just being an amazing guy yeah he did.

"A podcast called how to be a girl, and we wanted to introduce a queer woman who has been featured on Encyclopedia Lion. Referred to cal who was transgender like me, but Roberta during a time when almost no one understood what it meant to be transgender along time ago. She helped blaze a trail for future generations of transgender people. She also drove race cars. Really Fat which is very. So cool. Now, here's host. Jenny Kaplan to tell you all about Roberta. Roberta cow. Flow from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manteca. Today's maverick was a war hero, race car, driver and Trans Pioneer. She changed the way people think about gender identity and two was the first known British Trans Woman to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Let's talk about Roberta cowl. Roberta was born in Nineteen, eighteen in Croydon England. She was one of three children born into an upper middle class family. Her father was a prominent surgeon, and her mother was interested in social work and the arts. Roberto later described her upbringing as strict, religious and moral and her family. Strong convictions led Roberta to be anti-religious for many years. Roberta struggled at school where students bullied her for her weight, but she found her place in the motor club. Roberto loved cars and dreamed of becoming a racing motorist from an early age. She was also interested in photography and filmmaking. At the age of Sixteen Roberta left school to work as an apprentice aircraft engineer and soon joined the Royal Air Force. In nineteen, thirty five Roberta became an acting pilot officer, but was discharged to motion sickness. Roberta returned to engineering and studied at the University College London. She wanted to become an automobile engineer. She thought cars had more personality than planes to get experience. Roberta addresses mechanic and sneak into race track service areas where she'd offer to help the drivers. In nineteen thirty six reporter fulfilled her childhood dream of motoracing and won her class at the land's end speed trial. By nineteen, thirty nine, she had competed in the Antwerp. Grand Prix two years later in nineteen, forty, one Roberta married. Diana Carpenter a fellow engineering student who shared her love of racing. They would go on to have two daughters. But World War Two was looming, and shortly before her marriage Roberta was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army in nineteen, forty, two, she was transferred to the Royal Air Force and became a frontline spitfire pilot performing aerial recon. In her autobiography Roberta wrote about the dangers of flying during the war, she said narrow escapes a daily event. Several of my closest friends were killed and I. Regard It as just a matter of time. On one occasion Roberta lost all radio contact and had to find her way home through thick clouds, she almost crashed into the sea, but landed on cliffs right before her fuel tank had empty. On another occasion she survived the crash and was taken to a German POW camp where due to limited food, she said prisoners were forced to rock house. After the war Roberta started racing again and even founded a motor racing team, but she suffered from depression, and later described this period of her life as pointless and empty. By nineteen forty eight Roberta had separated from Diana and her depression worsened. She later said it was an attempt to make up for what I knew deep down inside me consciously. My nature was essentially feminine, and in some way my world out of joint. During this time, Roberta a woman named Lisa. Who would be her companion and friend for the next thirty years. After an illegal surgery back in Michael Dylan the first trans men to undergo Falah Plassey Roberta was able to be diagnosed as intersex which allowed her to change the sex on her birth certificate to female. In nineteen fifty, four Roberta sold the story of her gender reassignment surgery to newspapers. The, public was fascinated though the concept of changing one's gender was new and often misunderstood. News reports confused sexuality with Gender Identity and transgender women were assumed to be homosexual men. Roberta's story broke that narrative as she had previously been married to a woman, and they had two children, plus her experience with combat, service and motor racing were considered very masculine accomplishments and perceived to be unusual for transgender women Roberta continued to race in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven. She won the Shell's Lee Walsh Speed Hill climb. But determined to get back into top line driving. Could you goals the only way of life? In Nineteen Fifty Roberta acquired a combat aircraft and intended to perform a record breaking flight across the South Atlantic, but the project was never completed, and later that year Roberta was declared bankrupt, Roberta struggled to find employment and her financial issues worsened. While she continued to race cars well into the nineteen seventies. She largely remained out of the public eye. In the nineteen nineties. Roberta moved into a London nursing home. In Two thousand eleven at the age of ninety three, she died. She instructed that her death not be publicized, and only six people attended her funeral in lieu of flowers. Her friends hung a sign that said Roberta cowl racing over her coffin. Roberta's courage is notable, not just for her bravery in the face of war, but also for her extraordinary fight against societal norms, taffer gender identity recognized. All May or talking about Mavericks and legends we're highlighting women who went against prescribed gender norms to make a name for themselves for better or for worse, some of these women did incredible things for society and should be celebrated.

That's why he's dedicated himself to being there for other in person and in spirit. If I wasn't doing what I'm doing right now then I wouldn't be here. I'll probably be buried in Vevey to guaranteed I would have been here in our fight instead helping other people off breath this is his story. Mason walks through the field behind his dad's two story farmhouse. where he grew? Up on the Samson Hamson cremation in Moscow chiefs all get behind his dad. Patrick Buffalo is a rancher and a hypnotherapist and Reiki master astor the reference point for most people is the past and their experiences. That's where they're stuck is in their memories. After Mason became a dad himself at fifteen he took a job with the fire. Department is a fire department. You don't know what call your on on his first day. The very first call it came in was about his cousin ferron three years later it was his cousin. Tyrel seem more. I looked lifeless.

That's where he was when his dad called him and told him his cousin cody had died by suicide. I didn't even have time to come back and pay my last respects for cody. And it's tough especially for if people would what we're GONNA do some analysis step up and take the lead so he came home if you ask them to describe himself now. He says. Suicide side awareness advocate if our thought all my life and what. My plans are in everything that I didn't think I'd be what I'm doing. When he got back he started his first of many community initiatives walking and spirit so with all this as like when you commit suicide is there?

Mason says the number of suicides look like they've gone down at least in Samson for him. The work is year are long and a part of everything he does. This team of horses at his father's ranch makes frequent trips to to the cemetery. Three funerals doing within the leaf they pull rehearse with big spoked wheels and light pink curtain toppers with tassels hanging from the top of the glass window on every side. It was an idea that Mason and his dad had to give community members that last ride. That's not all the horses to though. They're also helping people to heal nestled in the snow. Coated trees to the east of Patrick's barn is another project with his son. Mason came back and then he started making pass and clearing the bush and we bought a cabin set up a TV. They call it was dossier village. It's a place ace where people visit to confront their trauma. Going for a ride in a wagon with a team of horses is a very therapeutic. It's very healing going for a horseback ride. It's very therapeutic therapeutic. So that's what we offer here is Is that I am experience. It's so peaceful there it's like Like being somewhere else. Oh Patrick says his son needs to be doing this work for his own wellbeing and others so mason does have a strong villa vision for healing although he struggled in his own ways continuously. You know because he's had his own experiences ever since he was a child that he has to continue. Continue to deal with And it's no different and all with the the sixteen thousand people that live in this community and everybody's been hurt everybody's been everybody's stuck in a Rut. Not Knowing how to get unstuck. He knows what he needs to do and when he's doing it yes I feel good care when we can work as a team. I feel good

What is the Vulgate?

"Last week on five minutes in Church history we talked about a high point in the printing of the Greek New Testament as we looked at the reformation reformation printer. Roberta's defense this week. Let's look at the Latin taxed and let's look at the official Latin text. It's known as the vogue eight we use the English word vulgar to refer to bad talk but the word vulgar was not always so pejorative or negative. It literally early means common. And so the vogue eight was simply the Bible in the common language of the people now. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew for the Old Testament. Commit Greek for the New Testament and little parts of the Bible. Our Air AMAC. But those were not the common or the vulgar language language in the fourth century AD. Latin was and the Church and the people of the church needed a Bible and their own language which at the time was Latin. So one of the Early Church Fathers Jerome led a team of translators to produce. What has come to be called the Vaal Gate. The official Latin text text of the Bible for well over a thousand years. This would be the Bible text for the Church. So let's explore it a little bit you for Jerome's involvement there was an old Latin text of the Gospels. Jerome simply called it. They to S- Latino or the old Latin addition addition and. That's where Jerome started with that addition of the Gospels and he made edits and he put it out round four hundred eighty addition started appearing others. There's an unknown to history. Started working on other parts of the Bible in the epistles under likely. Jerome's leadership is editor. And so we began to see early editions. The VOL Gate Bible published in those early years of four or five. Of course this is all pre printing press so this is all done by hand and there were more than sixty six books in the gate because it also included. The Apocryphal books will various edits. Were made to the. Vo Gate throughout the Middle Ages. Gregory the great while he was pope made a number of changes but the Vul- gate was considered the biblical text. This was the texts that wickliffe used when when he translated his English edition of the Bible. It wasn't a translation from the original languages but from the Latin Vogue eight the Latin vol- gate was the very first major book to come off of the printing press. This of Courses Gutenberg's printing press in fourteen fifty five and then along on came the reformation one of the key elements to the reformation is the renaissance cry Ad Fontes. There's there's another Latin expression and that simply means to the fount or to the source ad. Fontes you see the Vol- gate. The church's official Bible able at the time was a translation of the original. And so the reformers wanted to go back to the source to the original. Now I've said this before on five minutes instant church history. I'll say it again. In fifteen sixteen harassment's published his Greek text for the first time in fifteen sixteen coffee was introduced to Europe from Arabia. Abia and in fifteen seventeen we have the reformation so we can put the whole thing into a formula. Can't we greet New Testament plus a cup of coffee and the next thing you know you have the reformation so from our Greek and Hebrew texts from fifteen sixteen on comes the translations well as a response to the reformation. The Roman Catholic Church held a Church Council. It's known as the Council of Trent and it met from fifteen forty five to fifteen sixty three one of the many things to come out of. Trent was that the vogue eight which had been unofficially. Officially the Bible of the Church was now officially the Bible of the Roman Catholic Church. It was an remains the final authority so all matters of doctrine or dispute are settled by turning to the vogue eight. So now you know what the ball gate is. It is the Latin translation of the Bible. It came to us from the church. Father Jerome and four hundred. That's the gate. I'm Steve Nichols. Thanks for listening

The Life of Robertus Stephanus

"Back to another episode of five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're talking about Roy bear. SDN that it is his French name. It is Roberta Stephanus in Latin Stephanus was born in fifteen three in Paris. That is where he we live in worked for. Most of his life he died in fifteen fifty nine his life perfectly corresponds to the reformation and it's early formative formative decades SA- fantasies. Father was an established Paris printer and so steph. Ns when he came of age he took over the family business. He married a woman named Peret and her dad was a printer as well. They had four children together to went on to be prominent printers in their own right. One of the first projects that Roberta's defense undertook was a Latin Bible. He then published numerous Latin texts texts of the classics and even Greek texts of the philosophers in the poets and the great thinkers he published a Latin dictionary a French dictionary but he comes to us in church history because of his Greek New Testament he I printed a new testament in fifteen forty six prior to this. It was the era. Smith's text and so- Stephanus put out his taxed and fifteen forty six after a few revisions in a few additions and much time was spent compiling even more manuscripts from monastery scattered throughout Europe in fifteen fifty to finish published. What has come to be known as the Texas receptiveness us that Latin expression means the received text? This was hugely influential. And for centuries this Greek text was the basis for all English bibles as well as many bibles in other languages. Well things were a little difficult for Stephanus and Paris Harris up until fifteen forty seven. He enjoyed the favor of the king. But when Henry the second came to the throne he did not like Stephanus and all of this Bible printing and and by fifteen fifty defense had to flee and he ended up in Cavins Geneva he would spend the last nine years of his life and he died in Geneva in fifteen fifty nine. Well here is what he has contributed to us over his lifetime. He was responsible for the book of acts being placed between the Gospels and the epistles before him the axe came after the epistles. Bibles so every time you say Matthew Mark Mark Luke John and the ax you can thank Mr Stephanus and guess where those verse divisions came from in Your Bible. Well if you guess the the Fantas you'd be right. After divisions came in around the twelve hundreds but stephanus gave us verse numbers and they first appeared in that text disrespect us back in fifteen fifty and then these verse divisions appeared in fifteen sixty in the English Bible the Geneva Bible able well whilst fantasy was in Geneva he printed French bibles he printed books. By Calvin even additions of Kelvin's classic text next the Institutes of the Christian Religion Stephanus was hailed as one of the best printers of what was really the Heyday of printing in the sixteenth century. He was very skillful. He applied himself very diligently to his job. He surrounded himself with accomplished our and craftsmen. He worked with those artists to develop what came to be the best font. For Greek printing for Hebrew printing French printing Latin printing. His books were truly works of art as a printer and of course we know how important the printed page how important the Bible title the Printed Bible was to the reformation but also the printed page Stephanus stood up to kings stephanus. Serve the church Stephanus. Fantas was a significant figure than the Protestant reformation. Well that is the life of Fro bear esteem or as we say in Latin Roberta's Stephanus.

"UK Art Schools a moment when a world of possibility opens up to students from across the world but ups education in the UK is in Crisis Isis. The teaching of subjects in schools is under threat from the English baccalaureate or e back which ninety percent of people are expected to be entered for by twenty twenty five the People's steer towards subject seems crucial to young people's education. Get Arts are excluded meanwhile at art schools around Britain funding cuts and a steep increase in student tuition shouldn't fees over the last decade of create more inequality and more limited resources at art colleges creating a huge shift in the dynamics of the art college so this week's episode. It is an education special. We talked to the artist Patrick Brill or Bob and Roberta Smith about his campaign for arts place at the center of the curriculum often expressed directly in his art we look the National Art and design Saturday Club and initiative offering a free Saturday learning program founded by the design is Francis and John Searle and we talked to two professors at Goldsmiths College page about the precious and realities of art schools today in the US we took to the CO author of study on the Benefits of Art Education Schools Patrick Brill known. There's Bob and Roberta Smith is a leading British artist. WHO's campaigned ceaselessly in recent years for importance in the face of its marginalisation in English schools. He also teaches final at London. Metropolitan University and I went there to see him just as the academic year was kicking off this week Bob. When when did you first start making our about our education well. I think I when I was a child. I think all are really the all the artists I really love kind of pedagogues Paul Klee Joseph Boyce Bush. I I love the idea that arsov kind of conversational thing and it's a to and fro ing of ideas and so the idea of so are being educated is both of the artist is about curiosity and trying to find things out once you think you know something something the San Shift and you realize that you other things to be said about it so I do about our education self education in in some ways. I went to university time when they didn't really teach you anything at all. I was just left in a room for four years so I found I feel a bit like an auto diet really although although I university educated and so that's important but to ask you a question really precisely making art about problems without augmentation with two thousand ten when the Co that should govern came in one of the things that happened that I realized instantly is is that when that government came in and they had the those supported by the Liberals and the Conservatives they could throw away their manifestos on start again policies which had been endorsed by the electric a Michael Grove God bless him really took that to heart art and he before the election they were saying they weren't going to do any more educational changes you know because I was tired of constantly changing goalposts in education but he really went for it and he created the single the e back and it marginalized art in schools and I thought at the time I I mean I I I thought that was just an appalling structural change range which was going to damage on education and is one of those things we we sit in the bath and you hear this and you think oh well that means. I'll no not mean and that means that means this. It means to be less kids guide to galleries because they know about you know the V. A. Ah Students is going to damage design Britain British design you know maybe it's a bit of a myth but the idea in the nineteen sixties preached his I got really exciting using because the working classes invited into all schools basically in the fifties so so I just knew that was a bad idea and I started dotted campaigning about it immediately vertical attitude him and and I just did what I could and also I have educational -cational chops because my parents but my dad rand Chelsea art school in the nineteen sixties and so I kind of my dad weirdly gone to lobby Margaret Thatcher about outscores with Henry Moore the Josephs club and and so I kind of had this I have this so memo gene or something he's just he's just gotTa tell these politicians are wrong and I know in the art world I know in the art world and Artis Artisan they don't think about their secretary schoolteacher in fact there are more often lightly to say my art education secretary. It was terrible so I knew that they weren't necessarily going to get immediate support from artists necessarily and so. I thought going to do that and something I know about. It's also political now. I've always been bit of a political artists but it's something political that I really really no it inside out you know so. I'm not contributing just off the cuff remarks. You know I do know about the subject was sitting in an art school. You know I'm in London onto metropolitan. University is is the the main widening participation university in the in the country because of its location the students that we got and and so as an obstacle it's the most diverse outscore the country's pretty unique and so it's kind of a to know about these issues not just talking at the top of my head and it's interesting this idea that I think you're right in saying that very many artists had problematic experiences of being to art in schools but one of the things about when you are too is it does expand your horizons in the sense that for instance. I can remember you know yes. You were forced to de Tight. It'll still lives and things that didn't potentially a make you into an artist but also I was introduced to Dr. Ali and I was introduced to Matisse. Isn't that sent the that's. The thing that's being denied to children is just an opening up of their sensibilities isn't it. I think that's I think that's right and I mean I I. I met the art teacher the other day and and Mr Hawks and miss the Hawks really taught me anything but what Mr Hawks did was that he said he was really into dub reggae and what was the hawks did that. He said you've got to go to the anti-racist is to I N Al Carnival and so we traveled to Brixton and we saw Elvis Costello and the attractions turns and and all these bands you know and and it was an amazing experience so in a way that sort of this sort of spice vice. I think other teachers can do that but the this idea of the art room as a creative space. Is You know he's a very important thing for for children and really it's it's subject in schools where you where you can bring what what you know in other subjects too you know thinking about politics philosophy or mathematics or pattern or chemistry you know you can bring all that and and he can create a synthesis of all those kinds of ideas and in fact that's in college. I also knew it wasn't just about micro go and the changes to the APP but the it was the fact that that would have up and down the educative system so what's happening primary education who's the RSP. Let's be you know pretty much. Squeezed out of lots of primary education was totally wrong. You know anybody who knows the history of education thinks about people like mood off style. I mean I'm not an advocate of Steiner's education particularly but you know that children and learn language in a conversation with their parents and their peers fire visual imagery by looking at things by by joining the circle insane that's smother by drawing a square and saying that's dad and then you have the conversation says dialogical. There's something called joint attention. Actually human beings having dogs have exchanged Jay z's that we can we can talk about a third thing and have a relationship with a second person by this third thing is like a triangulation violation of imagery and ideas and art is absolutely principal to that visual allergies principle to that so squeezing our promise scores. This is like a real anti-humanitarian thing to do. It's going to ruin people's lives really not create better people for the jobs market so all of that all of that thinking rarely fueled a series of works and protests and films and ended up with me standing against Michael Govan election and it's still going on but for Thames and Hudson called. You are an artist which kind of outlines why people who don't think of themselves as artists should should think think of themselves as artists so there was tremendous support in the arts community in the visual arts community. Did you think that had an effect did the politicians listen today. Just plowing cloud. I think the effort by the arts community is created a bit of solidarity and a sense that the issue's important and also it's very important to gal people's take on issues It's not just one voice. Our isn't about mom person's voice so that's good but the all the politicians have taken absolutely no nothing from what we've been saying it's on they've plowed on with the back and they will continue to and and can't have listened to tour totally claw fears and damaging British education dodging educational prospects for kids and the damaging bridge rich design and our ability to you know. I think it's a bit of a myth. USPA about Britain being creative and all that everybody else culture around the world kind of colonialism but but actually you're you're completely butchering that USB politicians are doing that they care about the all they care about is league tables and Statistics and marketing and It's just totally wrong so it in essence what you're saying is in order for there to be a substantial shift in a way that the also taught in schools then they need to be a change of government well the needs to be more more than that there needs to be needs to be a change in a kind of global understanding of these things really. I mean creativity not in humanity and about are you know I mean the UN UN Charter. has it has it pretty much says kids should have access to their culture but all people now think should be four participants in that country from the off and and it needs to the on that level will is is about a change of government. I mean God. We need a checkup for so many reasons but it's not necessarily that tits to make the shift that we need in primary education it takes a shift in in how we conceive of Education Russian. There are people thinking along these lines in the peace league tables which is really the league tables. was the where they were the principal organizational force behind you know supporting mathematics and science subjects and technological subjects in the far. Always you know people people my go foot while we got to do it like Singapore that was because of the Pisa League tables well now..

"But because the the traffickers the the, the coyotes, they put out word that if you go, you can stay that. That's what people are told despite what they might hear from the administration. But Janet Napolitano said it right when she said as governor of Arizona, you show me a ten foot wall. I'll show you an eleven foot ladder. People are going to come if the economic incentives or the violence makes it such that that calculus of their children's lives as bad as that trip is it's better here we, there's a new president of Mexico taking off Lopez Ober door, who are, you know, and who has reputation as a a leftist. But yeah, was in many ways of pretty conventional mayor of Mexico City, which which do you expect to see as president of Mexico? I think the short answer to that is both. I think it depends on the issue. I think we've already seen that he can be highly pragmatic and conventional and pro business. If. He will pro free trade on certain issues. He, you know, the peso stabilized almost immediately after his election despite fears, and that's because he was reassuring the markets of what he was going to do. On the other hand, he has majorities in congress. I don't know what the check will be on him, and he is talking about direct democracy via plebiscite in referenda that I find deeply deeply worrying. And part of the reason I find it worrying is watching Chavez do just that at the beginning of his own room, we don't need Representative democracy. We're going to make that change the Atlantic issue on his democracy dying has a great Jeff Rosen piece about the decision between direct democracy and Representative democracy and how direct democracy might work for, you know, fifteen people in Athens, a millennia more. Co, but it results in sort of mob rule when you try it for a larger group. And so I worry about some. At some length when our country came into being indeed exactly Madison, you know, talked extensively about this and Hamilton in the federal is papers and. I do worry that that Lopez over door talks his languages. You know, it sounds an awful lot like I alone can do x. or why he is dismissive of institution and I confess your one was from our own president. Exactly. Exactly. NAFTA. Yes, which I mentioned earlier, the deal that was struck with Mexico. The president called it far reaching last week. It seemed pretty modest. And how was it as compared to, for example, the terms of the TPP which we pulled out of it seemed to me. We got more absolutely under that treaty from Mexico because which is and Canada, right? Which is the value of multilateral agreements. Well, you're exactly right TPP was, and this is what we are talking points onto the end of the Obama administration. And I truly believe this when people talking about modernizing NAFTA TPP was the modernization of NAFTA. It gave us the things it updated put in digital commerce and and. You know, talked about energy intellectual property gave us access to things in markets. We've been closed out of so in Canada, there's been all this talk about dairy. Well, the Canadians gave on dairy in TPP which was really hard, partly because the Japanese were running up your benefits from other countries that were part of the TPP visit all set what they were giving up too. So politically you can sell something like that because you can tell your population. Yes. But for the first time we got x. and that's gonna benefit more people. And so when you pull out of TPP and now you essentially go back to the table with only two of those partners and say, we, we'd like the same thing please. But with none of the benefits we were getting from the other nine players, it is not necessarily surprising that we struggled, but we've also made some demands that are that frankly, were just non starters. The sunset clause. Which had to be so this the the after five, all three parties explicitly wanted to said to continue it. So it reverses the onus in a sense instead of having to say, if you want to get out, you have to act if you wanna stay in, which gives no certainty for investors and things other things like that, which we had to back down there so much that I would like to pursue with you. But I, I think I should finish by asking you this..

"Berta Jacobsohn joined our State Department thirty two years ago as a young analyst in rows over the decades through Republican and democratic administrations to become assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs where she helped negotiate the normalization of relations with Cuba under the Obama administration and embassador to Mexico at a very freighted time between our countries. She's now a fellow at the institute of politics at the university of Chicago, and I sat down with her earlier this week shortly after President Trump spoke to the UN general assembly to talk about US relations with Mexico NAFTA the situation at the border and the state of American diplomacy. Roberta. Jacobson welcome here and welcome to the institute of politics were so happy to have you as a fellow this quarter. Thinking looking forward to be here looking forward to that come from jersey. Yeah, I just did a oudlay just had a conversation with Peter Sagan the host of wait, wait, don't tell me who is another another jersey guy distinguished alumni. Yes, exactly. Exactly. And you come from present company excepted, Inglewood, cliffs clips, New Jersey and your folks. You have kind of a public service background. Your tell me about that? Well, you know, I tell a lot of people that there was a point in our lives when all three of us, my siblings, I have a twin brother and an older sister, and we were all in the public. Sector. I was at the State Department. My brother was a public defender in New Jersey, and my sister worked for the New York State Department of developmental disabilities in the DNC petitional ization of willowbrook and people literally in the town I grew up would offer my father condolences here. You had these incredibly expensive college educations and all your kids were in the public sector, not making money, but for my parents, it was an absolute point of pride. They were thrilled with that. I grew up with parents who were the antithesis of bowling alone. They were. They were joiners and leaders. My mom was a former teacher in bed stuy in Brooklyn, and she became eventually a chairman of the board of education having been the PTA head and all of those in your community? Yeah, in Englewood cliffs where I grew up and my dad was head of the voluntary, all of these voluntary grow civic groups. My dad was head of what was called. The board of adjustment, which was essentially zoning board in the town, and we were a town that runs right along the Palisades overlooking the Hudson river just north of the GW bridge. And I also tell people that since my dad worked in Jersey City, my trip home with him when I worked with him one summer was the opening credits of the soprano all away of up the New Jersey turnpike to the north, and but for them it was really important. Why? What was their background by the way we're families come? Well, they did the classic eastern European Jewish migration family that came some through Ellis Island, including my grandfather who was my mother's father who was born in remain in came here when he was two, and we found the manifest for when he and his mother arrived. My dad's family came through Boston and Connecticut down to New York, and they had they were from Belarus. Originally, my mom's family from Romania and they were much more. Assimilated, both families ended up in Brooklyn on flatbush and my dad's parents were both lawyers. His mother was the first woman admitted to the bar in Brooklyn. His aunt, my great aunt was the Commissioner of human resources which was essentially the welfare Commissioner under mayor Kat have in New York. Having gotten her PHD 'economics from Columbia in nineteen thirty eight. Wow. So for a Jewish woman to to get her PHD in economics, this was a very distinguished family. And so my mom's family felt a little a little intimidated by those folks. My my grandfather was fats Waller's lawyer during many of his books. Cruel, his trial had some run difficulty with yes. And so you know, they were from families that felt families of the depression families who felt committed to public service. My mom went to Smith College. I in her family to go to college. My grandfather and my grandmother left school in highschool to go to work. My father came from a more educated family. If you will, higher education. He started out at MIT as young man and then enlisted in the second World War and shunning the help of his family, including an uncle who was Treasury, Secretary, Morgenthau's teeth of staff. He.
