How does Puerto Rico become a state?

"It's common for people to lump puerto rican statehood and dc statehood in with each other and there are some parallels. Like part of rico. Dc is more populous than the states of vermont and wyoming yet. It enjoys no meaningful representation in congress and like puerto rico. This lack of independence has often put the district at the mercy of petty battles for political clout considered former congressman jason. Chafe it's who was elected to represent district in southeastern utah to the dismay of dc's liberal city council. This conservative politicians spent a significant chunk of two thousand fifteen. Nc thousand sixteen obstructing cities decision to legalise cannabis and to authorize euthanasia in certain circumstances. Schafer's threatened mayor bowser with jail. If she allowed legal marijuana she allowed it. I have a lot of things to do here. In the district of columbia me. Being in jail wouldn't be a good thing. Meanwhile puerto ricans reeling from hurricane. Maria could only watch as senate. Republicans held up the passage of a robust disaster. Eight bill for weeks on top of that. The economic fate of the island hinges on a bankruptcy like process established by congress called presa promise stands for puerto rico oversight management and economic stability act. You'll notice is not a perfect bill in the right direction. Those nielsen bus. Though john this it s mesa people born in puerto. Rico are us citizens receive a social security number at birth and are eligible for an american passport. They can relocate to the continental. Us and work freely the do not have to deal with the barriers that apply to most immigrants and yet their citizenship is conditional. Even if puerto ricans on the island wanted to vote for the president of the united states last november third the constitution forbids it and despite counting three point one million residents. So that's more than the dakotas en vermont combined. Puerto rico is not entitled to voting senators or to a commensurate number of house representatives. And as we get into later in this episode this is far from being the only tangible consequence of the island's status as a territory of the united states which brings us back to the big fundamental question that freeze puerto rico on november third should puerto rico be admitted immediately into the union as a state. Yes or no. On election day. Puerto ricans voted in favor of becoming the fifty first state. The vote was non-binding and would need the approval of congress to push statehood forward Directly voted in in an absolute majority more than fifty two percent to pursue stated that result sets the wheels in motion for the island's governor to appoint a commission which in turn will develop a transition plan for congress and the president's review that same day. These voters also handed a narrow victory to gubernatorial candidate. Pedro pierluisi from the new progressive party. While he's opponent. Carlos delgado favored the status quo. Pierre-louis is one of puerto rico's fiercest advocates for statehood here. He is in february. Two thousand fifteen introducing statehood bill before congress at the time. Pierluigi was puerto rico's resident commissioner. Which is a nonvoting seat in the house of representatives. Bipartisan bill introducing today flows from and builds upon the two thousand twelve referendum and the federal appropriation enacted in response to that referendum. In other words this bill is being filed now because the strategic foundation is firmly in place every action i take is designed to advance the statehood calls because it is beyond dispute that territory star status is the main source of wrinkles grave economic and social problems. There's no question that the united states treatment of puerto rico as a territory of second-class citizens has caused very tangible damage. But what must come next may not be as simple as deciding. Yes or no on statehood as both senator mitch. Mcconnell and governor elect purely suggest in fact november third marked puerto rico's six referendum on the question of statehood previous attempts have been mired in controversy and bigger opposed for example the two thousand seventeen referendum drew a ninety seven percent majority for statehood pretty clear-cut right but actually voter participation was abysmal that year. Thanks to a very effective very organized. Boycott participation was hired as time around but opponents of the referendum have argued that the question was stacked that it may not have been obvious to voters that a no steve hood was in fact a yes on independence or some alternative status opponents say the ladder deserves consideration that distinction between dc and rico matters a great deal. No one is seriously arguing that the nation's capital should become an independent nation. Instead the concerns over self rule truly boil down for dc statehood or no statehood. Not so with purdah rico. And it all comes down to the island's history joining me. Today is in is auto a civil rights lawyer at the center for constitutional rights and the author of. It's time to talk about cuba and puerto rico to an essay published in issue. Twenty seven of current affairs magazine angelo. Welcome to deconstructed high grabbing to understand. Why puerto rico faces a much more complicated question than statehood or no steve hood. I think it's important to grapple a bit with its relationship with the rest of the country in your recent essay. You argue that. Puerto rico gives us a sense of what cuba might look like today if it was still under american control. What is the context in which puerto rico becomes. Us territory rico. Became a territory. Much like cuba fell under united states. Monitor ship dominion through the eighteen. Ninety eight spanish-american war in which the united states took possession of guam had dominion over the philippines. And of course cuban puerto rico

"Already. I love this. Love this concept also. I think example like we're like something you. I'm sure you've seen all the time at a patient is six years old. She's in good health but he's mother-in-law period of surgery. She's gone through. She spent money or mouth average her mouth and those those poor people those people they they think once they've spent that money that it's good forever you know and they didn't get that way because they're oral health was great in the first place and actually she's actually pretty reasonable patient like she knows things are not allowed her mouth. She sees a period honest every other areas other appointment. Okay greencore team are in bad shape now the giant nice law at fractional boggles like. You can't really do a crown on because it's like there's nothing left to crown you cut it off little classified feeling gonna pop off the week. Grab onto you know. I said the same thing as copies off. Bossa crowns on my next A message and i think she loves pink. Amy no whatever it was like half the price of crowd chart sure sure and it's just a great bucs actually as gt that last forbids. She's right brand plans and it just. It's a wonderful. Call my office where it's like. I need that thing between the filling and between a crap using on extra that is. That's a really good point. There's there is man. I suspect there's a lot of people listening right now. They're like yeah. I could use that thing because for for a lot of people. Crown is a bridge too far but a big filling doesn't do them justice even even if you can do a big filling. Well a lot of times doesn't do them justice. I know a lot of the people that go. No the big. But then what i find reality is sometimes. They're hard enough to work on that. You can't get an ideal feeling man when you can work outside the mouth all of a sudden you got. You got a fighting chance doing something decent form. That's a big deal. It's been a huge obstacle. As i think though you know i i'm a guy who doesn't like crowns Fine crowns be kinda struggled my day. mostly yeah i will interest off a give me a lower archery over around or ginger but added signing it. Just it's been wonderful like you said at some doing an md b. l. on a under nineteen where patients always cabbies original six months. It's a pain in the butt. But you knew that. Emma yells not last six months in imo. Db l. is just giving you more margin to rod. That's that's exactly that's and england. Also think lou these things all with just an arm gi yeah. I know a tartar. Corey about the see thinks you should buy them. Because of or those of like a composite blocks the blocks are. Yeah yes. I think for about a decade ago. Got it with anyway. I've had so much luck Glass heimer cement where you can actually have the perfect isolation. it's so easy to do just wonderful. That's so i feel like. I feel like a printer in this particular case between we've talked about to situations that are the inbetween That we don't have for instance you know the being able to make more than one healing denture for a patient because printing brings the the lab cost down significantly in the same thing with this provisional temporary crown but it's better than it's better than a big filling Potentially gives them time so they can save up for a crown or maybe in the case of the older woman. This could be the be the end. The end restoration with resin reinforced glass. I i don't know it's interesting. It's like the printing the printers giving you those in between that you might not have otherwise. That's a big deal a huge deal especially especially 'cause not raking the bank. I think more than anything the dentist might just as it did even the cost. We're so used as dentists yet. I'll you know. I'll just eat the cost on. This is a good person. Any all are all brown people. But he's don't want to be. You can't run a charity business but you still want xactly right right. Customers do your patients. And i and if you owned a practice i've i've owned a practice for twenty two years. I know some of these people better than i know. A lot of my friends dubbed just seen him a lot. You're like you are. You're going to cut off your nose to spite your face because you don't realize that it isn't all about dollars and cents in. This is an option. That's really good. That actually helps bring the cost down. I'm sort of this really cool. So basically what we've talked about in lots of different ways is how printing can be that in between option for cost savings. I know that as as you know comprehensive dentistry. We shouldn't be worrying about the cost. Make where everyone always worth costs. Let's be perfectly honest always. It's always a concern. No matter what and i think so for dentists who have a little bit of creativity for dentists who are interested in doing a little bit of the lab work in house Printers could be that option in between as really good. I haven't one nice thing about it. Yeah let's hear it. I think the one thing that i'm missy is ortho like that's we're just much. I mean so barren butter putting me on this. Yeah carnegie barron from meeting stenmark guys. Those guys will make you spend money. I tell you have a case where you just need like just one or two teeth and if similar visit line with that was muslim I bill two thousand dollars. Yeah it's he's up there. Yeah so. I can charge you know a thousand dollars miner. Two minutes on these cases in that makes the to so much easier from their not necessarily perfect. That's another it's another perfect example. It's the inbetween where you can. You can pass the savings on your patient and you can still. You can feel good about the treatment and you didn't break the bank on either end. That's pretty great. Actually exactly what. That's just pert as exactly it russell. Thanks for joining us. I think this will plant the seed for a lot of folks that may be looking at printing and need to be able to justify it so we probably did that for people. You probably help people spend a lot of money here so i wonder if you feel proud of yourself russell really. I'm impressed impressive. So if you're looking for that in between spot and a lot of different cases maybe a printers for you in russell. Thank you for joining us. This was great and we'll talk again soon figure..

When we joined the company I joined about. Game. When you join game scooping and they put the Bar Code on the back of your neck. They ask you. What's your favorite video game? And at the time I said SCICLUNA. And that's. Still Very Near and dear to my heart, but I gotta say right now at this time in my life. You asked me that Damon. I have to be honest. That's stranding. Game of all time it I've had in the middle of a very spiritual experience with it I'm about one hundred fifty hours of put into that game and wow, I've just. It's opening the up in ways I didn't think I was I was thinking a lot this week? Because there's that hint at the sequel and found that strangely comforting, because first of all I had a great time play. It was absolutely favor game last year. What we laughing at what are we getting? He's making united. Here. We didn't close. Einstein has judging our tastes. He's he's like crying out loud about this. It's more. But even though it has some some weirdest, too. I had a really good time playing and I I. Really Really Look back in that time fondly and I like really WanNa kind of. A comfort game like that again it was. That's what I was calling the right word. It was my animal crossing new horizons. It got me through the quarantine instead of building my little house I was walking around. Little Roads Oh. Yeah, my maps complete every road section that can be built as. Sent, brother Yeah when. Curls up in the air as the craziest road Love, so, what was it before that stranding? I cannot. And we played the second ads. VR Game also very in inventive as Tim Schafer in the People Double Oh. I. In that's interesting, it's a very interesting answer destiny. For my like my personal, whenever I'm trying to come up with my favorite of anything of all time, just like my own little sort of a personal. I limit myself to only things that were released at least five years ago. That way I have some hindsight that I can sort of. You know you're absolutely right. There's recency biases in play for sure and the. Okay, we you. You say Yo exclude things from five years ago. No. It's no. It has to be at least five years old. Probably reflects on your in order for it. For me to consider it one of the best of whatever of all time, yeah, for example I have a playlist that I keep updated of my favorite songs of all time. They're called God tears songs, but I won't allow any song. That's less than five years old on that playlist. Okay I think that makes sense. I think the Oscars actually showed work that way. We'd have some perspective on things at that point. That's a great idea that's your. Of. Tina. Do you notice when we do a game of the year? Stuff that our staffs tends to think about things that just came out especially for music. That's when I really noticed an. Fresh on your mind. Exactly, it's also holiday season right so all these games are out, and it's just like I've never been able to separate that out. At the Santa, then towards the end of the year, we have more time to like finally. Catch up on some game, so it gives people an opportunity to play the stuff early in the year that they had. To not throw. Our whole came on the air system under the bus SAM.

The Allure of the Roadtrip: Building Towable Tiny Houses with Author Chris Schapdick

"I'm curious if we just art with with your kind of personal story you know what brought you to the tiny house movement and then what what made you decide to become an Tiny house builder yeah it's well it's it's as with most things in life they very often happens sort of by accident not slants sort of way and it's it's the same thing for me really I I was going back like about five six years I was a father a nine year old girl living at New York City in Berry league populated suburbia here and I kind of regretted that my daughter wasn't really getting a lot of Serb exposure due to to nature and two things that I don as a kid camping fishing hiking these sorts of things so I started thinking about that more more and I decided to buy a piece of land North York City with the idea that we would go up there we would can for something that would be a place to Kinda destination for the two of us in the one thing led to another it was right around that time that I found H. Schafer's Tiny House spoke and that kind of intrigued May and then I started going online and I found tiny houses they were b Ah Goto at the time you know if you go back a couple of years there weren't that many companies doing this sort of thing and and yeah and and suv this idea of having a place to go Kim kind of evolved into well would've built cabin there or something like that better and Yeah let's go another in Iowa wound up deciding on a tiny house and building a tiny house I'd did for a a shell build from tumbleweed folks since it was a little intimidated with doing all the framing and roofing and things like that myself are so the offered what was called an Army Amish Orrin Razor and I went with that and yet proceeded to sort of spend the next several years off and on weekends kind of finalizing that building and doing all the various things that need to be done the insulation the interior electrical plumbing and coming up with all the various decisions that to be made in that during that process as well but that's kind of like how how yeah I got for me to be talking about this wonderful tiny house upstate New York that's awesome so it's a it's a tiny house on wheels which tumbleweed model is it is the Linda Linden do that anymore but but yeah says the Linden model has nicer to foot up or on the back of it and that that appeal to me definitely so do you still you still have that tiny house absolutely yes great that's great so you you finished out the tumbleweed one then what what was the next step to saying I want to do this for other people yeah yeah so when I finished the house into a tiny house showed that was taking place in North Jersey I'd never really intended to to take the house you know ability to travel with you know it was really built to to to fill the purpose that interest described but this show was taking place that was like well you know what Lake with slips get more involved in the community because I you know I enjoy this let's let's get together with some other like minded people and it wasn't too far away spend sixty mile drive you know my my truck was up to the task of towing it there and I went to the tiny show was really I didn't know what to expect quite frankly and during the course of building the house maybe ten people got to see it you're tired on this one weekend ad like three or four thousand people trek through the House and in just the feedback and be the positive reception that I got from people in them and the kind words that they had from the House of what I've done is really just very socially overwhelming for me and it gave me a little bit of pause and I thought well I don't ever get this kind of reward or feedback from the five job you know I go in there stangeland during paid but I'm like crunching numbers on a spreadsheet writing emails that is not very fulfilling this weekend blatantly was had me kind of reconsider yeah Lord aspects of my life at that point wow that's huge yeah I guess when you're you know working nine to five which which I did for while as well nobody like treats your work as like something amazing and Special Lake worth worth congratulating but I guess in the tiny swirled because everything can be so unique everything kind of reflects the builder or the client or both there is the opportunity to it's really impact people with with the work that you do yeah absolutely not I couldn't agree more and and that houses is really just an extension of who I am exactly like what you're describing is it's such a personal thing when in our lives do we really have that opportunity ninety to create something like that that's such an expression for we are what we hold the import so forth so what was the first what was that well I guess what was the second tiny house you built after your your personal house yeah so the second time he asked us kind of funny because the first tiny house great reception I was like that was awesome i WanNa do this again Xie House show that wasn't so conveniently located that I could just kind of drag my house to it goes down in Florida like okay we'll Matt telling my ten thousand power house for New York to Florida unrealistic so we'll have a way how do I get to have this experience again build another tiny house and that's when I started building sort of the smaller more mobile of Artaud Gypsy wagon types pictures and they put that second tiny house together in a matter of like six weeks the first five years Bill Amazon took six weeks in and off the floor and I went and it was it was really just a desire to continue to be part of the community and Environment yeah so was that the Gypsy wagon yes gypsy wagon bill but I did nice and did you did you sell that house the Florida show did not sell it at the Florida Show I subsequently sold it but but it was yeah it was something that the second I'm bill was something that I wanted to reduce I'd I'd already started thinking about continuing to build these and building four of them for for bull so as part of that process what I built the press gypsy wagon I documented the entire build I was taking a look let me do online floors or something like that ultimately it while the apartment struggles dot com and I got a lot of Nice feedback there and again that my point there was really to make money with it or whatever it was just something that I did at pure enjoyment and and and the whole so you know helping others do something similar yeah and I love I love that you put this up on instructive holes and you know that website I feel like it was really big in the like maybe like late audits early tens it's a wonderful resource like people post so many cool projects up there and like you've got a step by step basically set of instructions for how to build a Gypsy wagon now I'm curious now that you've built several more tiny houses what are some things on that Gypsy wagon that that you would do differently well you know one thing that's always been tricky as working with wood and especially when you're working with plywood which is kind of be the exterior shell is Jesse wagons the process of ceiling that would and protecting it from the what's is such a is such an important stab and it's it's tricky right because there's those sugars a lot of like sort of green grade policies but you want to use the environmentally friendly products ideally worry about things like allergies off gas and people have sensitivities those types of things so that's that's kind of that was a struggle right out of the gate some extended like continues to be one where I try to be like very thorough. CNN ceiling this this this plywood is something that it always found to be a bit of a struggle

got an event coming up so we wanted to talk about that so like to welcome to the show show from some New Orleans Louisiana Russell Schaefer what's up Russell not much josh good to hear from y'all hey y'all ben I'm good are what are you crushing on the bench right now oh man three weeks just because well right now just actually been going through a matt damages stuff with doing Kito stuff in his the drop weight right now so all the all the weight lifting stuff's taken aback back in everything but Yeah drop down like thirty forty pounds work with Matt and I'm looking and you saw me last time you're shredding your shredding phase pretty much pretty much just trying to more trying out the food you know trying to say okay let's not it's a really tough life honestly you when you're in the gym and you're throwing something on the bench like what's what are you throwing up like I'm assuming you're throwing northwards of two fifty to seventy five yeah yeah you know I do cross it actually I'm the guy who does crazy stuff like that guy and so I got my ass kicked all the time because it's like I'm going on these against these small little gymnasts who can like easily you know do fifty pull ups in five minutes and I'm like like after like five I'm like oh no like shaving some two hundred twenty five pounds at yeah the the pull up pull up I get that it's you know it's it's great in all and it's a great indicator of physical fitness but I don't think that like raiders Middle Linebacker von has perfect can do just a shit ton of pull ups I guarantee you he can throw up to twenty-five probably thirty times and to me I find that what more impressive like I'd I and maybe that's because I've never been the guy they could throw that kind of wait around a gym and and I'm lucky if I can throw one eighty up a few times I just she's never had that kind of upper body strength but I just find that to be more impressive like at the combine when they get those guys and they get to twenty five on the back in those offensive Lineman's are just wrapping it like it's nothing I just find that to be I find that to be enchanting those guys are impressive like just watching like you know you see this is who like they're literally you know lifting two to three to four times their weight sometimes in is just amazing to see you're like holy shit like raised and there's always amazed go crazy so what's the what's the cross cross fit scene like in in Louisiana crawfish fe instead of water at the water station or what's the what's what's the seems like that's a tough city to cross fit in because it's probably top two or three food cities in the country I think I think really what you do is you know you cross venue just go start drinking afterwards honestly I get the bloody hurricanes and Margaritas and just like just terrible awful sugary drinks but you're like oh I did crossover for our therefore I can I can drink a couple hurricanes missile problem you earned it yeah exactly and then like you know some more than the morning you're just you just kind of go over but I think you burn more calories hung over honestly I mean feel your kidneys are like working overtime that's that's the you're being largos up exactly delivered liberals getting pumped down and whatnot and I'm pretty confident that's like that's a huge part of like the Kito program is just working out a little bit hungover hormones is that the way it works from standridge correcting new I might get one the line of his after this but I I get a feeling that's that's how it works he knows all hormonal speaking of something it's all hormonal you have a interesting practice model I just think overall you have an interesting proximal tell us a little bit about your practice model well you know my whole practice based off of how much I really hate myself you know I I love dentures you know like I just do it time and I'm that one guy like give me a lower denture any day overdoing her crown on number thirty like I would if I could never really y El Okay Yeah Holy Moly we could be more polar opposites Noah I'm that weird guy everyone's like wait you like you like dentures and then like I came from practice before helmeted medicaid dentistry the Kool smiles and actually like actually like I like working on kids it's fun but Mike I'm the one dentist who said Yeah give me a whole practice full of kids is an grandma's with no never no bone dentures so why are you admitted drug addict I mean is drugs involved here I mean drinking is involved but maybe just maybe I just do dentures I have an excuse to drink but all seriousness I just I just love the stuff man there is it's kind of Nice it's because you you just crappy dentures are out there and like just no one's really making high quality inches or not many places making high-quality dentures a good price and I mean just how much how many times do you see like Oh wow this is just a ps but the patient loves it and how many times you see those amazing L. dench patients like I hate this thing in kind of wondered poor communication was done through the whole process so yeah that's that's sort of the thing I I remember most from removable is that from my dental dental school experiences that it's fifty percent prostate onyx and fifty percent like behavioral management and Psychology and so that's just the part that none of us really want to do it we want to pick up a piece and go and with dentures it's a lot of sitting and listening to people Dan just being almost like a therapist satisfying salads and it really is a lost art it's a dying art and there's guys out there that are picking up the the mantle and taking it on because I really just don't think you know in today's world of digital stuff and all that and we'll get into digital so for dentures but it just seems like it's it's not the sexiest thing to do in so younger the young talented people in lab tech school and in final score are wanting to go other ways with hybrids and stuff like that and this whole generation of people are getting leftover so good for you what do you make a month it depends on the month you know honestly I pretty much went tax returns season hits I get busy for March and April and May and then like September everything kind of dies like everything dentistry I'm about to get busy again with everyone trying to use their insurance benefits so kind of my goal is to almost doc a good day for practice if I'm starting six arches in a day you know sitting around typically turn around maybe one or two arches a day off God while you're making my head hurt oh man von Like I've started six arches in a year oh man uh-huh oh God but while the Nice thing about those like you do a lower denture and if someone says no you did a shitty lower denture you say what's lowered injured like like clad like that but yeah it's a low like when someone I'm saying my lower denture like removes to say well yeah so what do you WanNa do about it you know anyway I guess it's a level of caring but also realizing that is not you know I I do the best I can but I can't do miracles without implants yeah so while I'm I'm glad that we have guys like you around has I don't remember the last time I saw you know a course especially multiday course specifically generated around removal takacs and I think you you got something going to you have some details you WanNa talk about as far as your course coming up pretty much I'm I'm doing it Courson November eighth and ninth in New Orleans it's called dentures fit sorry dentures fit bite and smile you know that's kind of what my mind is like how you break it in her down and kind of the goal is just to teach a dentist you know first of all Heidi Megan enter like what what do I think is important making a denture 'cause I I agree with a lot of the stuff I was taught in dental school even though I hate to say that on the other hand like they're certified even dentures at I don't do any more like I don't.

Election upset last, month for the California report I'm Scott Schafer the warming climate make, Harry a, snow Leaky effect on mental health that's according to researchers at two bay, area universities who. Say hotter temperatures raise the risk of suicide here's QB's Molly Peterson going back to the eighteen hundred scientists sociologists and. Poets all noticed, more people die by suicide in spring that's caused other researchers to wonder if. Warmer. Temperatures are the reason why Stanford's Marshall Burke studies earth system sciences he and colleagues. At UC Berkeley mast decades of temperature records and death records for the US and Mexico they found that when temperatures rose about two degrees Fahrenheit deaths by suicide rose by about one percent even a one percent. Effective multiplied across many people, in in the United States implies a very large, additional health burden from increasing temperature the study doesn't suggest, that, hot temperatures cause people to harm themselves and Burke stresses that suicide, has other larger and well documented risk factors but based on this data. And on global models this team projects that of climate Change continues unchecked until the middle of this century hotter temperatures, could cause at least twenty thousand additional deaths, that sounds like an abstract. Statistic but which you think of that as. Individuals in individual, families that are going to be fundamentally. Affected by this if, temperatures increase Burke says air conditioning and, wealth don't seem to limit the link between hotter temperatures and suicide. So as climate changes he expects the risks of heat to human health will keep rising for the California report I'm Molly Peterson let's continue to consider heat but look at someone who thrives in it last night fifty.
