"Now back to the best of the Bruce Saint James show on the big 89 wls There was an interesting piece a shout out to the Chicago Tribune about police officers and diversity hiring you know and we've heard about this before It gets into this concept of community policing And I have had the opportunity I have a friend that's a sheriff of all things And I've had a chance to talk to police chiefs And a lot of the ones that I've talked to have talked about this concept of community policing officers law enforcement who live in a community are from the community that they also work in They have a relationship They know people They went to the school whatever it is and that their tends to be better results From a law enforcement and public safety standpoint when the officers and the law enforcement have some connection to the community Looks like a no brainer It seems like a no brainer but it's apparently easier said than done One of the bigger problems is that when you apply for a law enforcement job you answer a bunch of questions And a lot of people in those areas that need community policing the most Probably wouldn't pass the questionnaire Well yeah And there was an example here of this woman who had dreamed about being a police officer her whole life of Chicago police officer She there was an incident where she said she inadvertently used a bad check years ago That cost her 15 years prior She wrote a bad check That costs her a job of being a Chicago cop Now a bad check really But do you see what is the tolerance too tight You know what I'm saying Is there no problem It always goes back to me to income and how you grew up in your culturally and so this woman may be wrote a bad check and made a mistake 15 years ago it's still on her record Someone who had more money and more means And maybe parents who got them off Probably would have had that wiped off You get police the little differently Yeah Okay You have a different relationship with law enforcement in certain communities and I admit that I have here You know I have offset friendly I wave get the cops at the start box you know I'm like hey how's it going They've literally these things where people have been denied Yeah well I smoked weed 8 years ago That's it you can't be a cop You know wait a minute I'd be a little bit uncomfortable with someone who said well you know I serve some prison time I did my time Did you have a weapons charge Okay but yeah we you know a bad check I mean everyone makes mistakes right And I don't know how the hiring process works to the CPD but I'm thinking that with this woman so if they see that wouldn't they call her in and maybe talk to you about it As opposed to just what happened yeah So here's the point that I think it comes back to Do you want Police officers law enforcement who are so squeaky clean that they could pass this background check out Or do you want one who might have some real world experience You know I'd almost say this I won a cop who understands the criminals because you know what I've been around some criminals in my life You know what I'm saying I know where that line is if you will And when we talk about community policing I find it hard to believe If the goal is you know I look at this on the work backwards If the goal is we have a safer community If the goal is we reduce violence And criminal activity If the goal is we get the bad guys off the street you know Who best to do that Is it you know if you're a Austin or Inglewood cop Sorry I pick on those places all the time You know The violence is You know the way it is Is the best person to do that The squeaky clean white cop from the suburbs Is it somebody who might have function wound back in the day Might have written a bad check 15 years ago but you know what Knows every one of those knuckleheads which go with them right You know what I'm saying Over here Your mother I know your mother Come over here You know what I'm saying I believe that if that was your goal Those would be the people who would do a better job of policing those communities Yeah And so maybe for community policing they need to make some allowances I mean there's of course a line You can't trust A bad check It just seems 15 years ago Yeah 15 years ago And you know and some of these people I feel like they would be great cops too right Yeah And so then so because let's not forget how many Chicago police officer of Ben and you know all the years in Chicago who have been indicted for what corruption for running ring is so and these are police officers who became police officers right They had they they passed the test We have police officers who are still police officers for things that would have denied them becoming a police officer You know what I'm saying Wait a minute So if you had committed this act prior to applying you wouldn't have been hired But you commit the act after you're hired you still remain a police officer That in and of itself strikes me as kind of a bizarre.

Jonathan Edwards and the Call to Prayer

"Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel observed that the opposite of love is not hate it's indifference and hopelessness like so many of us feel right now in the midst of this perfect storm of pandemic and justice political unrest rioting can lead us to indifference after all. What can the typical person do about all this crazy stuff going on but Christians cannot succumb to hopelessness and we're never allowed to retreat into. Indifference to love is the very first and greatest commandment I god and then others we are Peter Rowe born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We might not feel like that's true. But it is the Great Jonathan Edwards a leading theologian and perhaps America's Greatest Christian? Philosopher served in pastoral ministry in the Eighteenth Century during the height of the enlightenment and an essay he wrote. Entitled a call to United Extraordinary prayer a humble attempt. How's that? For a title Edwards argued that for the Christian to maintain their love for God and for others defined by whole ball avoiding despair regular prayer was essential. However, Edwards was clear that prayer does not bring hope to believers by guaranteeing that God will line up with us in our request. Rather prayer aligns the believers and our request to the Kingdom of. God and it does so in at least three ways first per- teachers are hearts and minds too long for God's Power and glory here's Edwards there is much in what we have seen of the glorious works of God's Power and grace to put us in mind of the yet greater things of this nature that he has spoken of in his word and to excite our longings and our hopes of their approach the. Of His presence that is knowing in believing the one true. God of the Universe is meant to excite us towards greater prayer for the continuance increase and greater extent up such blessings. Second prayers, the principal means by which Christ Kingdom advances again, here's Edwards so it is. God's will through his wonderful grace that the prayers of his saints should be one great and principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's. Kingdom in the world what an astounding thought. So often we ask but other than pray what can I do as if praying isn't doing something, but it is it's even effectual. Saint James says in his epistle and finally our prayers are not merely that God would save our nation but that he would pour out his spirit on our nation through the church. But that God would appear for his Church Road Edwards. And mercy to miserable men carry on his work in the land and in the world and fulfill the things he spoke of his word that his church has been. So long wishing and hoping and waiting for the restoration that we long for is not for some pass good old days as a country. But rather for a restoration to the purposes of God, We pray for God to heal our nation to revive. The church even as we long for and await the day when the Lord will return restoring his creation and making all things new these words of Edwards describe at least in part by a few thousand of us have been gathering virtually each of the last few weeks every Wednesday morning between now and November the fourth, which is the morning after the twenty twenty election for a time of national

Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence

"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.

New Gas And Chemical Facilities Crowd Louisiana's 'Cancer Alley'

"There's an industrial corridor in southeastern Louisiana. That people call cancer alley. It has more than one hundred and forty chemical factories and oil refineries and now there's a boom in natural gas and so industry. There is expanding so our efforts to stop it. Here's Teagan Wenlin of member station. Wwf New Orleans on a sunny Saturday. Morning I meet Sharon Levin a little tour of her neighborhood house right there terrence. Oh Great. She grew up here in rural welcome. Louisiana in Saint James Parish along the Mississippi River and most of the kids have stuck around too but now she's on a mission to stop a proposed chemical mega-complex less than a mile from her house. We drive just around a curve and see a big empty field where there's some construction underway in the distance. There's a metal fence get you see locate beggar defense back there. That silver thing is new L. shape. That's where the grapes are. That's what I saw. There used to be a plantation here so when the giant factory was approved state. Archaeologists investigated the site and found graves of enslaved people. We stopped to look. I'm pretty sure a lot of us here. Have ancestors are buried in that group in one of those gravesites? Levine's hoping the historic graves will force the company Formosa Petrochemical To Stop Building. The Taiwanese company is one of the biggest plastic manufacturers in the world. And this is a good place to build. The river provides quick access to an international port and the state offers tax breaks gave Mosa twelve million dollar grant. But Levine sees the plant as a threat to a place. She loves model Morning Coffee Back at her house which he built on family land with her husband. She describes how the rich fertile soil along. The river made for a great farming fifty years ago. It was wonderful back then. Beautiful Plan and everything Nice. My Dad grew all of our best doubles in foods. They take the vegetables to New Orleans and sell them at the French market. We had to get up early in the moment will pick low beams. I used to hate that now. Her country home is surrounded by giant factories. There are more than ten in Saint James Parish their smoke stacks forming huge clouds that cast shadows over miles. Levin thinks all of that industry is making her family and neighbors sick off. The Putin. Don't doubt we go slowly die. Her husband died of heart problems. Many of her neighbors have died of cancer. She says the air often smells bad. It's hard to link specific illnesses to certain pollutants even though Saint James Parish where she lives has an above average rate of cancer for Louisiana. Which has one of the highest rates of cancer in the country. According to an analysis by Propublica the Formosa Complex would more than double toxic air emissions here. Levin organized her neighbors to fight the plant forming a group called rise. Saint James last fall she marched with other environmental advocates all along the Mississippi River up to the capital Baton Rouge. They got lots of media coverage they delivered their demands to lawmakers no new development in the region. Matthew Block has governor John Bel Edwards chief counsel waspishly. The governor does not agree that there should be some moratorium on manufacturing facilities but his office did agree to do a small public health study. It'll survey people within a one and a half mile radius around a single plant five miles away from where living lives. There's no question that this is limited studied. It doesn't pretend to be otherwise but it's also A start in how we can start to look at these communities and whether or not there there is arisen a higher incidence of cancer and then we can make decisions from there but the study won't look at future emissions from the Formosa plant or a handful of others being built advocates. Say It's the only public health. Study the state's ever done in the region and that it's not enough. They accused lawmakers of putting profit over people's lives. The plants have brought a lot of jobs. And money says economist. Laurence Scott Nothing I've ever seen before a spokesperson for most petrochemical says the new plants in Levine's neighborhood would create twelve hundred new high paying jobs. Scott says Louisiana competes with other places for these plants and when communities like Saint James Push back? It's bad for business. One thing for sure is the larger the pushback the more expensive. It is to locate here and that is one of the factors that has to be considered when the right of return on investment here versus Texas. This tension between economic growth and health concerns has played out for years. Beverly Right is the director of the deep South Center for Environmental Justice and has advocated for people in the chemical corridor for more than three decades. It's hard for me to stay calm about this. She says they've won. A few fights stopping some plants from being built getting relocation money for an entire community in one case yet since the nineties. More and more plants have been built. I look at all of our work that we did. I mean this is my life years and watching it just being washed away and a lot of the people that we work with auditing gone now rise. Saint James is suing the US army core to stop the Formosa Plant. They've appealed to the state to revoke the permit. And they're leveraging the historic gravesites. As a reason the company shouldn't be allowed to build still as much as it pains. Her right says the best way for people in the region to protect their health. Maybe just move sitting at our kitchen table Sharon. Levin says she would never consider it. We were here first. The chemical plants tried to invade our privacy and our property. Why don't they go somewhere and not come to us? This is our home. This is not their home. She neatly packed up her flyers and the P. Con Cluster. She made for meeting tonight. She's organizing her neighbors to continue to fight. The Formosa Plant even as construction is underway. Just down the road

"It's Bruce Saint James and Pamela Hughes it's it's disappointing and that might be putting it mildly there is a body cam video of an Aurora Colorado police officer in uniform armed with his with his his revolver sitting in his squad car this morning I don't know yeah I mean it's not middle of the night it is the middle of the day he is unconscious with his foot on the brake in the middle of the road yeah in so you've got a squad car police officer slump behind the wheel of that squad car what happened somebody calls the police right you know officers show up and in the body camera footage you can hear an officer say I think he's a little intoxicated literally all right like I give the old I smell alcohol right but there was no evidence taken at the scene no blood task no field sobriety test we did though call the paramedics they came officers didn't mention the smell of alcohol to the fire department they transported the officer to the hospital because they thought that either he may have had a stroke or a think about what officers come into contact Fenton already got about like damn right like you you get you know a small grain of it and and we're looking into an overdose situation at this point time to take in the hospital and at the hospital part of their protocol is to take blood right and in that blood it came back that this officer was not once not twice but five times over the legal limit and he still has a job why does he have a job the hospital took the blood not the officer miscible and it's his private health information so cannot be included this is the district attorney and Colorado I think this the came we don't want to know we don't want to get evidence that might show what we suspect I don't think that's a cover up but it's a couple blocks from it this became an ignorance is bliss moment I think this the came we don't want to know we don't want to get evidence that might show what we suspect there were eight Aurora police officers who responded to the scene even though even though on body cam they say they they were suspicious of our thought alcohol was there none of them told anyone that they spelled alcohol end basically treated it like he was having a medical emergency not that he was five times the legal limit drunk you know what his just become so apparent to me and I think this week has been a fantastic example of it adults are hypocrites adults are hypocrites we as adults we as parents are constantly trying to teach our children at least I know I am Riley if you see something wrong if you see a kid who's being bullied or picked on stand up forms step in do the right thing even I don't want to do the right it's called character yes and be a leader not a follower in this situation all eight of those officers knew what the right thing was to do as far as right and wrong it would be right to take evidence at the scene because you have an officer who's in uniform with the gun in a squad car it is the day is long it is it like in the middle of the day you could hurt somebody what you chose not to well let me let me let me even go if you don't think you know all cops are heroes and we should do anything the cops fine in the end and the whole idea behind the thin blue line that these officers can't turn in a cop because then somebody not there when they need back up if you are five times the legal limit in uniform in a squad car unconscious in your squad car in the middle street the middle the day you have a problem you have an addiction issue right that doesn't just happen if you didn't get that way by accident you know like I thought I was going to lead a bottle of Pepsi was Jack Daniels you don't have that you don't have a burger with a beer at lunch exactly your morning idea that one of their officers is obviously battling alcoholism that's like the the kind of person to music this guy needs treatment he needs help I mean it wasn't a beer it was pretty much a bottle of Bourbon I'm surprised the guys alive five times the legal it could kill what was all of our lawmakers to write acting like children at the state or union.

Elizabeth Warren confronted by angry dad over student loan forgiveness plan

"Senator Elizabeth Warren was spending time in Iowa were recently in Grimes Iowa I've been to crimes I say we're all familiar with but you actually are I'm sorry you can hit a golf ball cost crimes so she's in nine of the handshake line think I think the console free market actually do right uhhuh and a guy is always a guy comes up and confronts her yeah and we want to play you the the confrontation because I think that this guy represents so many people listening right now I know represents me the audio is really distorted and it's kind of hard to make out it's because some so whoever was recording it wasn't standing there were they were talking in there's a pop up in the room so when I go play for you because not to be able to make out what they're saying anyway so I in today's episode we're going to have Bruce Saint James play the role love angry dad and hi Pamela Hughes will play the role of Pocahontas I'm sorry off site off site all right so you see real lines are yes I see rifles okay you you pick up okay is there the selfie line I agree college dad steps up to senator Warren Allen says this Gober's my daughter is in school I saved all my money just to pay student loans can I have my money back of course not so you're going to pay for people who didn't save any money and those of us to do the right thing get screwed my body had fun bought a car went on vacation I saved by money he made more money than I did I worked a double shift working to get extra money yeah you're laughing at me no I'm not I am but I do appreciate your time that was the exchange that's how it went down how did I do and seeing that we're gonna get you know it but the joker but how many P. pull how many people can can put themselves in that situation whether they've paid for their daughter's college tuition or are saving for right now like my husband I are or pay for it themselves like I did and my husband did we took out loans knowing what that meant and that we had to pay them back and so we did and that was one of the happiest days of my life when I was able to send in that final payment on my my college tuition his college tuition ridiculous now yeah absolutely it is but the V. the way to fix that is not by going three college for all because that's in essence what senator Elizabeth Warren wants to do her student debt plan would cap debt relief I fifty grand and it applies only to families making less than two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year and she thinks that she could do this without even congressional approval this is scaring she wants to do this her first day in office and says you're super scary to me here here's the reality of this that it comes across to some people my guess is again people without large student debt is unfair yeah as well I have large student and this is still on fire because actually paid mine well okay so play along with me here what about mortgages what about car loans what about credit card debt like you why are the decisions you made to take out loans to incur debt for what ever reason somehow god going to be forgiven by the government what other people who didn't go down that path our they just missed out soccer but but on the yeah that's what you kind of feel like I'm gonna buy an RV on the flip side though you know mortgages and well what other did you use car loans and credit cards this call be wiped out bankruptcy student loans canine but it is super rare that they ever all are because you're gaining knowledge you're not gaining something tangible as in like something that they can we can we know we can't resell them in your so I think that there's a bit of a different argument there but one of the reasons why or several of the reasons why I'm against free college for all I'm a firm believer in having skin in the game if you earn something if you work for something you are more likely to to work hard at it if you're just given it they don't feel like you appreciate it as much the other thing I don't I don't know you I think there's something to be said for that he the people who took a summer job the people would save their money to go to college I I feel like they're a hell of a lot more invested in the outcome what do you think about it this way you turn sixteen and you've been saving money baby sitting or taking tickets at the movie theater or whatever it may be and I you're a you you managed by hoop Dee right and and you're so proud of this ride because you worked so hard to get it verses the kid down the street that mom and dad just gave them a car now I think you both have different pride and there are and that's kind of how I see this but when you're talking about like free college for all we're gonna have a student loan defaults are going to increase you're going to have completion rates decrease because this I don't you out you have a I was at a issue if the class gets really hard or if you haven't done the work groups what what do you do what you can withdraw at a certain point but when you go to take that test again have to pay for it right so what's the big right so now let's kind of go free college for all who cares take it again thank you again times take it again and then like let's not also forget how how are a lot of colleges paid for like where to get a lot of their funding from a issue you have a and a U. federal federal got a guaranteed loans from the federal government they also get a lot of it from the state yeah and Arizona has cut those funds routinely but that comes from our property taxes right so you are going to have your property taxes go up in order to help pay especially since the student loans are going to default because there might be some people going to college it really shouldn't be there I'm I'm but I'm really for some of you screaming on the radio and I enjoy that part but I I do want to acknowledge something there are people out there with horrendous amounts of student loan debt yeah okay arm and part of it is driven by part of it is driven by the fact that colleges and universities have jacked the price of an education after the root for and the reason they've done that is this becomes a chicken and egg argument because they know you'll pay it yeah and when they know you'll pay up they raise the price and when they raise the price you pay it I've always said the only thing that's going to change it is when people stop attending because AS you and you have a will lower the price when there's three people sitting in the classroom and until that point if you're willing to pay anything then yeah guess what the cost is how much you got yeah I just think that what you're also doing is setting a very dangerous precedent people are seeing this right now this conversation about free college tuition for both but I think there was there at that non not like you know what I'll take out the loans because you know what four five six years from now the government's going to forget

The Pilgrim Trails of Italy

"Hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can. There's there's somebody there and their job is to stamp this credential yes you go to the pilgrims office and I did not have to wait at all we went in. I was walking with with four friends and we arrived. We had to fill out a piece of paper and it was actually quite emotional thinking you know this is. My journey is officially Dinan. I'm filling out this paper showing where I started. And you get your final stamp and then you receive your like Sandy said your testimony them and then you have a souvenir for this gassing to remember and it's probably a beautiful moment

She points to a small scraggly one in the grassy patch running down her street. That's the the median right there. They've got a tree in there but it's one tree. There's another small tree behind it and there are parts of this neighborhood with more trees but overall data shows the canopy here is about half the city average. Hitler says she thinks trees were just not a priority park. Vol used to be the site of a massive asif public housing complex that was demolished and construction started here in the late ninety s c after twenty years. If we had thought differently about the design zayn we might have put more trees here across louisville wealthier neighborhoods have as much as twice the tree coverage as low income areas many of which are communities of have color jad daily is president and c._e._o.

The can literally be a a life or death issue according to an analysis by n._p._r. In the howard center low income areas of cities across the country tend to be hotter than their a wealthier counterparts. Those areas are hotter in part because they often have fewer trees and that heat can take a toll on health.

He took me to saint james court in old louisville. It's a boulevard famous for its stately victorian homes and an annual art art fair but we were there to see the huge lush canopy towering over us. If you were to look at an aerial view of this wouldn't look too dissimilar from forest the trees reese shade us almost completely stanfield says it's a reminder of what's possible if trees are part of the plan from the beginning for anybody that plants trees in a city. This is the the goal this is the dream. This is what you hope to create in the cities but even if trees are in the plan maintaining them takes money a lot of money me this year tree maintenance on this street which is about a quarter mile long will cost around twenty thousand dollars according to the neighborhood association the city has planted planted and donated roughly five thousand trees annually since two thousand thirteen but it loses about fifty four thousand every year according to its own assessment too invasive species a._b._c.'s natural disasters and urban development and louisville is facing a thirty five million dollar budget deficit.

American challenge people want everything but they don't want to pay for anything. When it comes to planting tens of thousands more he says city government's not going to be able to do all that by itself. He's counting on nonprofits and other institutions to fill in the gaps at the university of louisville's environment institute researchers are trying to make the case that trees are a must have in city budgets jets. They're starting to study called the greenheart project and will plant full grown trees as tall as thirty feet in three square mile area in louisville.

The idea was to run. This project is a clinical trial but instead of giving pills we plant trees irony. Bhatnagar is director of the institute food and he says beyond cooling city down studies have linked trees too much more better air quality better stormwater management lower energy costs lower levels levels of stress even a longer life but naga says you can't always isolate trees as the reason those things happen.

"Saint James and Pamela Hughes. That is a Phoenix. Police officer yelling at a man in a woman to get their hands up. The, the woman was holding a one year old, baby and her we now know four year old daughter was holding her hand. And this officer destructing put the baby on the ground. This is Phoenix and you set a one year old what on their in their on pavement. And she's saying, I can't sit to set the baby on the ground he is screaming. He's using profanity. And he you heard of they're going to put a capital. He threatened to shoot them. And you just heard us talk to former Arizona attorney General, Tom horn, whose representing the family in this situation. And you know what I'm from that interview. I took away that this is still in its infancy stages. But there's a lot that he still doesn't know he doesn't have the police report. Heck he doesn't even have the name of the officer to find out if there if this is a one off or if this officer is on the Brady lists. You can't check that he saying that there was no attempt to pull these his clients over because as clients say, there was no attempt to be pulled over. But yet there, I mean, there are cameras everywhere I mean, looking ring doorbell or closed, circuit or stop lights. I mean, do you have anything to substantiate? That I think it's too soon in the situation to have that kind of information, but I still get back to why the aggressiveness, why are these officers jacked, it just seems so out of place and as proportionate -solutely, and as we try to make sense of that you and I have been digging into this, and we had Tom horn on you can go back and listen to the podcast. If you just joined us mid broadcast there, but on that podcast you can also go back and listen to our discussion with former Phoenix police officer Darren Birch because we also wanted to get the law enforcement perspective of what does a law enforcement officer who proudly serve this community for years, see in those videos, and here's a little bit of what Darren Birch had to tell us earlier in the program, so that the officer was upset, and that he was angry that something must come before this, these officers cured upset aggravated by frankly. At the vehicle before we even you know what we think is there, I approach there already upset, which tells me something occurred, either trying to stop that vehicle or something. We're not seeing the video, and that's why I ask Mr. horn. How far is it from the store to where the family was approach, I think off the top of my head is probably about a mile? So put yourself in the position of law enforcement officer. If in fact, and it's a big again, this is one of the questions, we don't have answered if in fact, you have a call come in from. And again, we don't even know what the call was the kid. So I'm I'm waiting on a lot of stuff. But if you have a call, come in that there was, you know, a crime in, in that's taking place at this dollar store. Officers try to pull over this this car. They're driving for a mile not pulling in his car doesn't pull over. That's where I could see the officers getting. Upset, but to the point of rushing guns, drawn threatening to shoot people who, by the way are complying are calling the officers, sir. Yes are doing what they're asked to do. And still that one off specifically keeps threatening to shoot them again. I'm just going to say I think they're lucky they didn't get shot. I think we're lucky. We're not talking about one of these shootings. And he reached for something crap. And once you once you get these individuals, and you see that they are being respectful, and they've gotten building deescalate don't ramp it up. And apparently know it took a Phoenix police Lieutenant to come later, not showing the video to pull these cops off of these people and take them out of cups in release again.

"KTAR news on ninety two three FM get some perspective. Bruce Saint James and Pamela Hughes. Earlier this week. Why the Cy earlier this week? Please supreme court of the state of Arizona finally weighed in on a debate that was going on regarding the use of marijuana extracts and edibles in relation to medical marijuana card holders. Maybe you didn't know this was a debate, but it was, and it came down on the side of edibles and extracts are legal for cardholders. Joining us in studio right now is the head of Arizona's DPS department of public safety Colonel Frank mills and Colonel Frank. I know that on a daily hourly minute basis. Your troopers are, are dealing with people who are in some way, shape, or form, using extracts edibles or marijuana to. Yeah, that's correct in good morning. Bruce born Pamela, thank you for having me. And again this morning, it is a daily issuance for troopers out there. And they're finding people that are impaired. And I think the first part of it is just because the supreme court said that you can now possess those with your medical marijuana card does not mean that you can drive impaired or drive under the influence of those say that I'm going to say you say that. And I think that is, I'm only gonna see this by my own experience. Riding along with troopers. That's apparently news to some people. Yes. No. There's no doubt in medical marijuana card holders like, well that means I can do whatever I want. No, you can't. And I think that's the other thing to remember, too, in this is my issue with marijuana first off, it's a lot like alcohol in the sense that people all react differently to the use of drugs or alcohol. We know happy drunks, they'll laughing drunks fighting drunks, and people that are just mean when they drink, and I think marijuana's the same way, I think some people can smoke marijuana and participate in life activities and have very little effect. And I think others, it's very, very detrimental to, but the bottom line is you smoke marijuana for only one reason, and that is to get high. You can actually have. A drink for social benefit or enjoy the taste and not be imperative drunk, but marijuana's gonna make you high. So if you're doing marijuana in any form you shouldn't be driving your car. So the extracts are now legal, I thought that was interesting that they weren't before because they were already being sold at the spend threes, a bit of a of a conundrum there that I was still trying to wrap my head around. But when we talk about like the summer driving season. Now you've got extracts, we have medical marijuana in legal in the state of Arizona. You've got impairment, that is something that is of concern to every driver as well as your troopers. But we also have something new this summer in Arizona. And that is the I don't know what you want to call it, the texting ban the cell phone banned the hands-free ban when it comes to using your device behind the wheel and I kinda wanna start there. What are we calling this, because I've heard different media outlets. I've heard different people refer to this law as a texting ban. As a cell phone ban. I refer to like a hands free because you can still do all of those things there's a bit of a marketing issue. What does your agency referring to it as so I would completely agree with you, Pamela? It's a hands free Bill. It's not about what you do on your phone. It's how you do it. You have to have the phone cradle or some kind of device within the car where you do not physically handle the device. You can still voice text, you can still talk on the phone. You can use your GPS functions. You can push and swipe you just can't hold it in manipulated in your hand and have it your main distraction in the car. Can you acknowledge that the fact that it is subjective enough that you can push and swipe, but you can't type on like we are we are splitting hairs? I'm just saying from the consumer standpoint from the, the average citizen going. All right. So it's in the cradle, I can push nice white. But if I type the address in, I've broken the law, saying, if you do that, while you're driving, and that's why. Why it's a training time this law doesn't actually take enforcement effect until January of twenty twenty one and we want people to train themselves to use the voice feature on their phone to learn not to handle the phone. And again, I don't believe this is something that is about enforcement as much as it's about compliance in education. We just want society to change their habits. And we're like one of the last states to do this. Okay. Do you do you have a high level of confidence that they will? I mean, kind of like the toothpaste is already out of the tube and everybody thinks that I can do it safely. But you can't do it safely. I actually think it will because I actually have already seen people talking about it to hear in the media talking about it at parties, other places. I see the finger shaking through the car window at other, or manipulating their phone, and I think we're going to hold ourselves accountable, and that's my optimistic. Frank view of the world right now, though. It's a warning. All right. Somebody gets pulled over for having the cell phone in their hand. For whatever reason it may be you're not getting a ticket. Hit until January twenty twenty one but you are getting a warning, how's it been going with the department right now because you've got your, your guys, the ladies are the ones out there all over era, Zona? They had on a lot of warnings right now. We are and warnings while we're having educational context again, if you get stopped by a state trooper and I can't speak for police departments or departments. But if one of my people stop, you, you should get a piece of paper, that's kind of the rule is that we give you a warning or a citation for this particular offense. The only thing we can do is give you a warning, although you could get a citation for some other other things that you've done. But again, look at what's, what we have through Memorial Day weekend pretty well with our traffic the summer driving season is upon his people are going to start heading on vacation. We don't want to write tickets. We, we get nothing. Everyone thinks it's a generator of cash for the department. It's not those cash registers all sit within a county. The county gets the money for those, there's fees that are tach those that do fund other parts of our lab services and things like that, but at the end of the day comply. Science, and you know, neighborly behavior on the road is what we're looking for. During my right along. I was I was I don't know if I should say surprised by it, but all the things you just talked about. I'm going to say it nicely. We've got a long way to go because of riding along in a decidedly slightly murked trooper's vehicle. We were in the ghost car, the white on white, right? I can't tell you the number of people that sped by us. While holding their phone making three lane changes. Like I was I wish I was like, do people drive dumber around you? This is a maze. Ing. When I'm driving. I don't notice how stupid other drivers are. Well, it is crazy. And that's one of the things that's nice about what we got out of this legislative session, as an agency, we received some funding for more troopers in southern Arizona for metro enforcement and really for the two two expansion, we really need to continue to add troopers to the roadways, because what you saw is if we have visibility we have people out on the road people. Don't drive quite as crazy. Hey, Colonel Frank mill stead director of TPS in with us right now today is National Autonomous vehicle day. All right. We've got a lot of them in and around the valley, and in, in around the state, he's stick around the talk does a little bit about that, flew outstanding Colonel Frank mills stay with Zona DPS coming up next on.

"Saint James and Pamela Hughes. I realize and I understand that. Technology. Keeps moving forward at a very fast paced, and I can see a day when we share the roads, those of us right now, we're going to be sharing the role with self driving cars. It's going to happen to the point. You'll see it a lot. I think in our lifetime, if you will. But are you ready for self driving semi trucks? Yeah. Well, you know what they're here. Arizona is this autonomous test-bed if you will friendly. Oh my goodness, super friendly. And while I like innovation and technology. There's a part of this as way a little bit too friendly because we don't have a lot of the regulations that other states do, therefore, we don't have a lot of information that is going on with all these self driving vehicles in our state that being said, we're seeing a little bit more of these true simple is a company that has been expanding the last year or sell. Okay. They're not they're not, you know, hopping people in the back of their minivan and taking them over to Chandler mall. No, no. These are semis trucks, they'd had eleven of them on the road since January. And while they haven't talked about the companies that they've been carrying cargo for, we don't know that the United States, postal service is going to be using them in a pilot program from. From Arizona to Texas over the next couple of weeks. Interesting. So self driving semi trucks are with us, they are around us, and it's going to happen. When you hear about you'll want to call them Futurists, but these people saying here the industries that are at risk. And here's some how technology we've heard about, you know, if you work the counter at a fast food restaurant, a kiosk might take your job. And I've heard about this coming for a while, the truck driving industry it, how would it be impacted because listen, right, right, this very second panel there, there are people listening to us driving a delivery cars. Big rigs across the state of Zona. We know that, that I mean it's a it's a career. It's a good job. It also appears to be one of the ones definitely at risk. But we want to hear from you. If you are a trucker in dome. Dopey calling us tough when, when you're driving that big rig behind you. But is this a concern for you in what are some of the concerns that we lay men may not realize give us a call on the open mic line? Six zero two two hundred two seven three three because these new trucks, they are relying on nine cameras. Okay. And they've got they got a pair of light are sensors and what they're looking to do is become fully autonomous. That's the goal of this. There are other technologies out there. They're driver assistance. Right. The human is ultimately in control of the vehicle. What this technology is looking to do not quite there yet. But look to the future, they're looking to make it fully autonomous now in this, this pilot program that's going to be going on between Phoenix and Dallas over the next two weeks. You are going to have a safety engineer on board. You're gonna have somebody monitoring the trucks performance during these test Rondo humans. If so it's not as though you're going to be driving down the ten over Memorial Day weekend. Look over and that semis drive jock. It's not the case. But that is where they're trying to go, and they're doing all of these test runs now to see how quickly they can get their here's, I'm going to echo baby, the frustration for the truck driving industry because here's one of the problems. Here's why self driving trucks make sense. Maybe more so than other places the law, the law requires drivers that they cannot drive longer than eleven hours. And then they must be off duty for ten consecutive out ten consecutive. They must also refrain from driving beyond a fourteenth consecutive, our after returning to duty. This includes Pretre fuelling poster. I mean, it's just human nature. About them falling asleep. Fatigue drivers could in our safety, and they've got a fifty five thousand pound truck driving. So I can acknowledge it with you, what to say for safety reasons or whatnot. We require twenty you see these, these new rules went into effect recently trucks, on the side of the road because they get to the end of their time, and they just have to pull over and they have to take their ten hours off. They have to sleep, they have to pull over and you see that can't get to a truck stop there on the on ramps at offerings. I see him everywhere but trucks aren't rolling down the road aren't making money. If the wheels aren't moving, you're not making money. Standpoint. This makes sense I guess, but I'm also quite concerned, because you can make good money as a trucker. Oh, I don't disagree. And I'm concerned for those who may be out of jobs because of what they do six. Oh, two two hundred two seven three. Yeah, we're talking to you guys. Give us a call. Let us know your thoughts on this six oh, two two hundred two seven three three days ago. Pamela restore your faith in humanity with the story of the commencement speaker, that paid off.

Understanding 'Gender Impact' in Canadian Construction Work

"Might not say what is a gender lens have to do with building this new highway or this new pipeline or something. Well, there are gender impacts. When you bring construction workers into a rural area, there are social impacts that was last year and Buenos Aires, and you may remember some of the immediate reaction. We don't think that you need to have some kind of gender-based analysis when two thousand people come to create jobs to work to support hotels and restaurants as small businesses and families. It's unbelievable to watch. This prime minister refused to acknowledge that his arrogant and self righteous comments are an insult to tens of thousands of Canadians who work in construction in our communities across the country. Here's what that all comes down to whether or not you support pipelines and dams whether you think Justin Trudeau is a modern progressive example for the rest of us or a fake feminist who doesn't understand the real world. These construction projects which employ thousands of out of area workers for months at a time to have an impact on the communities that host, and yes, some of that is a positive contribution to the economy and local infrastructure, and yes, some of that is negative and when it gets bad it can get really bad. There are a couple of ways that we can measure these impacts one is with numbers, and that's being done. The other is the old fashioned way. You send a reporter he talks to everyone. And he tells us what he found today, we have both of those things. So we're going to try to answer the question. What are the real costs of Canada's worker camps? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Kyle Edwards is a reporter from mcclain's who spent time at a massive worker camp enforce Saint John and British Columbia. Tell me why you went to fort Saint John. Well, it started in. I think it was August twenty eighteen there was this story out in Manitoba. After kind of this arm's length and agency provincial agency in Manitoba had released. A report they're called the clean environment commission, and they had released a report that had gained a lot of media. Attention, basically detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Dating back to the nineteen sixties at a work camp up in northern town called Gillam, which is just east of a city called Thompson Manitoba, right? And the it was involving several first nations communities one in particular was the FOX like creation, and there were members they kind of detailed these horrible issue. These horrible stories of sexual abuse at the hands of. Manitoba hydro workers one person in particular had said that the RCMP organized gangs back in the nineteen sixties. And so it was this very explosive report. I guess I guess you call it. And it it gained a lot of media attention in in Manitoba last year. And so we were talking about it at McLeans. And we want us to do a story we actually discussed the idea of doing a story on industrial camps last year around the time the report came out, and so that was kind of the time that was kind of when I started thinking about it. And I put in some f allies and started asking people if this was an issue that they're really concerned about and that took me to fourteen John which is where it's a city that is known for having a very large transient population. Which is which basically means there are workers that go there for work. What do we know about what happens these camps, or I guess what's kind of the? The popular stereotype around them. Because the the reports detailing what allegedly happened in Manitoba is not kind of the only one of its kind. Yes. So in thousand seventeen a report from this organization called or this consulting group called the Firelight group. They released a report that basically raised a bunch of warnings about when there's a particular camp near in an area by other communities. There's a increase in issues like sex trafficking in the sex trade. There's an increase RCMP data and the report showed that there was a thirty eight percent increase in reported sexual assaults in Saint James fourteenth, James BC in two thousand and eleven and there were other issues like an increase in S T is in a particular area as well as other concerns regarding rampant drug. Use in alcohol use in in in a lot of these camps. And this is has been really as I kind of looked into it a little bit more. This was something that a lot of people have a lot of scholars and academics. Researchers had they've kind of looked into this issue for many many years. Yeah. And and it just seemed like it was nothing new and a lot of people kind of knew that there were a lot of social impacts to industrial camps. So that's really kind of drove the story. So you went to Ford Saint John to essentially see what the situation was like on the ground, and and what kind of social construct springs up around these camps. Exactly enforcing John. There's a huge strain on. So there they call them. They call it the shadow population. A lot of people that's a term a lot of people use the province of British Columbia is not really sure how many people are going to northeastern BC for work who live. Who live elsewhere who reside permanently? Elsewhere, right, and one of the challenges with that is s- things like health services and social services, the those those sort of things are funded by the province based on the resident population, and without taking into consideration, the thousands and thousands of people that most nearly double the actual population. When I got there. A lot of women spoke about a lot of indigenous woman, I spoke to you spoke spoke a lot about racism and sexual harassment and use and it was kind of alarming. Really? So can you tell me about some of the people you met in fort Saint John and some of the stories you heard so I

I I liked it a lot. I thought it was one of the best Oscars in years. Okay. Okay. So it was up six percent ratings wise, but that's still the second worst viewed telecast. And that's not good for the Askar's. But you know, they could've kept on time. You know, they were gonna cut out some of those categories where these well just just say unknowns, they come up and they've got forty five seconds. But they take like five minutes to say nothing. I understand, you know, they deserve the recognition. There's no question because those those categories without him there wouldn't be movies. That's right. But still that's why the show runs a little long. Now my picks. Okay. I I'm happy six out of seven was Roma. The one you were wrong on. No, no, no, no. No, no. I I was one of the few who picked green okay book. I'll tell you where I came close to being perfect now the keyword close. Glenn close. Yes. Yes. She was up.

And the director was shown in the in the morning, I'm real and that some people were upset by the one thing they did do right with that segment. They actually showed the photos of who who passed, you know, sometimes these award shows they'll go into that segment. And then they start wandering all over the place where the camera, and you're not seeing the the photo of the people who were there trying to honor. Okay. Let's see what else are we got? Oh, did you see Romney, Molly? Did you see him fall? I saw photos of him. He fell off the stage. What was that after he got his award? Yeah. I think he was trying to waive his parents or something a little excited took a left when he shifted right and any slipped tumbled right into the first roll like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith is Michael Keaton did that a few years ago? It's a critics choice awards. Same exact thing. Thank goodness. Oh, he wasn't injured yesterday bruised ego. Oh, but he did not do not lose the asker. Once didn't fly out of his hand. Once I think, Freddie, Mercury was there to catch him. I think he's kinda makes sense. He's been there for him all year, all k-. We've got to talk about the hot rumor Bradley Cooper who this is coming up. I brought it up at the beginning of and said James will be mentioning this hot scene between lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper with Cooper's mother of his child and his mother right there. Did you see your TV this morning? I don't know if you check. But it probably suffered third degree burns from the heat that was generated by the the duet where they did the award winning song. Shallow actors. Oh, they're actors. I tell you look in their eyes and the scene was so hot they had to closer is. It was it was even that hot. I'm saying I think there might be something going on. Well, that's what that's what Mary says. Well, Mary knows. She knows. Guy recently broke up with her fiance. His name is Christian, Carol. And then Bradley course, like you say the baby, mama. Irena shack check. I believe it. He goes through women like a Pez dispenser. Click. Click click, you know, so I know it. But boy, I'll tell you. If you couldn't feel the heat, then then then you're never gonna feel it. So we'll see we'll see I'm going to say by the end of the year, lady and Bradley C R a couple for twenty minutes.

Sorry right today. Family down the hall. Yes. Okay. I don't need to correct you to that. Okay. Correct. You more often. Jim you're you're a lot by the way. You know, my wife corrected more often. Come here to not be just didn't talk about me. I come here to be corrected. Yeah. I get that. So you guys are going to talk about something. We we chat about yesterday, which is proposed gas tax which would over the course of three years more than double what you pay for taxes at home. Yeah. Which they have that little sticker there. I don't know if you ever look, and you're like, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. What? And you know, this is this is kind of a if you think about it and look at it as a macro issue thirty thousand foot view government has dug this hole for themselves. And then once again wants us to bail them out of it. When you talk about things like fuel economy standards when you talk about alternative fuel vehicles. Guess what it all has the effect of people are purchasing less gas, which is less of a tax. So the the amount of roads remains the same. But there's less revenue revenue coming from it why because they mandated to get thirty miles per gallon that fifteen honestly, if the state of Arizona had it way they would mandate that cars can't get more than three miles to the gallon. They'd want you to do nothing but drive from one gas. That's how they make their money off of it. So there's a there's a competing issues. Here you have a free. Murky of people saying I want a car with better fuel economy. I like these hybrid cars, maybe I don't even own a car. I Uber's I lift I I ride a electric scooter the state of Arizona doesn't want that because that means a loss of revenue. That's what I always was curious about utility companies selection, promoting solar power. They hate solar power that we know that the electric the the the the electric companies, right? The idea solar power cost the money periods. Well, don't you America for years? We've been getting you know, with your Bill in the mail the app, here's how here's how to save money every month.

"Get some perspective, Bruce, Saint James and panelists issues KTAR news on ninety two three FM. We now have the body Cam video from the officer involved the Tempe. Police officer involved in the fatal shooting of a fourteen year old boy who was vandalizing stealing things out of a truck. I want to be factual sure, those are the facts as they stand now because we were also told last week that that fourteen year old also had an air soft gun that he had stolen from inside that truck which looks like a real gun. Totally looks like right. Oh, handgun almost identical. And as as we discussed this last week, Bruce, I wasn't quick to indict the police because there wasn't enough information. Okay. And how are you as an officer supposed to know the difference between what looks like a real handgun, which is an air soft gun and a real handgun in a split second. Yeah. You know, the shoot don't shoot types of scenarios. And I said, let's wait until the body camera footage comes out that's going to give us more insight into what happened. Well, we have it. And if you haven't seen it we've tweeted it out at bruceandpamela. You go check it out for yourself.

"Bruce, Saint James and Pamela Hughes. Relatively unprecedented. We can football weekend. You know, you had to argue are the four best teams left. Couldn't decide it in in a regular time. Both games NFC and AFC championship. Go to overtime, but the NFC championship game the one in New Orleans or the Rams traveled. There has got a lot of people talking third down and ten breeze from the gun. Takes a snap goes to the side. Unbelievable. No. Early. Hit might be a bit of an understatement. Joining us right now is Vince broader he's co host of the big Roger show ninety eight seven FM Arizona's sport's station. Missed calls wrong calls are a part of the game. It's a human. It's a referee. They're making decisions. There's been a lot of other calls over the years. Like, well, was it a catch was it not a catch whether need down you have to go. And look at those the frame by frame slo MO replay the thing about this one. Is it wasn't even close. I mean, this wasn't even in the realm of was it a bang bang playing. No, it wasn't a bang bang play. I can argue there were three penalties on the same play. Ended affected the outcome of the game. It did. So the combination of the agree. Just miss of the call by the official plus the timing of it. And what would have transpired had likely had the the flagman thrown. The saints would have been able to run out the clock and kick short field goal and probably win the game in regulation. So in those terms when you combine the two things that, you know, the the nature of the miscall, plus the ramifications. It's probably the worst blown call that we can we can ever. Remember? I will argue calls like this get missed in every NFL football. Sure. Because my take is NFL official. She aiding and really that in all professional sports is for the most part terrible on a daily or weekly basis. Subjective. Yes. But it's also one of those things where if this happens mid season, you could make an argument as to how it impacts the you know, the win loss record. I mean, we a good habit in the first quarter. You could say extrapolate out and speculate. But I mean when you get down to how much time was left on the clock omitted forty believe. Right. And and whoever wins this game goes to the Super Bowl. That's pretty pretty unprecedented. When it comes to back calls. Yes. But I mean, there's other football things you could point out. I mean after the two minute warning on the first downplay, why did Sean Payton the head coach of the New Orleans Saints. Call a pass play. Why did drew Brees throw the ball into the ground stopping the clock? I mean, they handled everything after the two minute warning was mishandled by the New Orleans Saints, and they got victimized by bad, call Vince, rata co host of the billion Roger show. Nine hundred seventy a sports station joining us right now. What makes this one different for me, though, is almost immediately the NFL apparently through Sean Payton. And then later admitted we completely miss this. Call we this again, this is one of the ones where let's go back and argue about it, right? Just getting off the phone.

Saudi spending to hit record high as oil prices resume slide

"Yousef Gamal El din reporting that from Riyadh on the Saudi budget. Thanks so much for bringing up to date. Yes. I notice for instance, just the other day the Bank of Russia came out to downgrade its four calls for all prices in two thousand nineteen. So the question is how Saudi Arabia will be dealing with that story with these lower oil prices we've seen all prices, by the way, taking nother leg lower into day's session. WTI trade. It's just about forty nine dollars says I look at it now down by one and two thirds of one percent. Brent crude also down by one point six percent as I look at that price. Now, fifty eight dollars and sixty five cents. That's some concerns about to what extent OPEC will actually be able to cut down production. And to what extent they will actually be eating into supplies at a time when the US shale oil in particular has been pumping more and more. So something also to keep an eye on today.
