It was that Muller was speaking in this legal code, the opinion says that the constitution requires a process other than the criminal Justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing. He never used the word impeachment. Why didn't he just use the word? I feel like even just saying the remedy here is impeachment. That's what's in the constitution would cleared things up for a lot of people. It's interesting playing him against Justin Amash in the last couple of days because that guy knows how to do a soundbite. I mean he is crystalline.

What Surfing Can Teach Us About Risk

"Big wave. Surfer. Big wave surfing, usually means riding waves bigger than about twenty feet high in Bryan has been surfing for a really long time right now. I am fifty eight years old, and I've been surfing fifty eight years. So my dad took me out when I was three months old, the summer after Brian finished high school. He was a lifeguard at a beach, when he saw a surfer wipe out on a massive wave. The surfer was struggling to stay afloat and Bryant tried to swim out towards the surfer to save him. But he just couldn't get close enough each wave get hitting them in hell holding on the water, and he kept popping up and screaming for help, and he survived full waves. And we kept screaming back and forth when the fifth wave came hit him. He's gone never found his body, but till is there, I still hear his voice, I sees face. I sees is, you know, so I it's kind of lost that you wish you coulda done something. But you couldn't you know at that time Brian never forgot that. And they never stopped thinking about ways to make surfing safer in years later, it was Brian himself who I take out on a massive sixty foot wave. He's arrived. He was fine. But he had a realization that day one that chair. Changed the sport of surfing forever. This is the indicator from planet money. I'm Carcione and I'm Stacey Smith the way that Brian changed.

Alison Schrager, is an unexpected guide to the history of surfing. She isn't economists to studies risk view ever surfed. No. Allison writes about the history of big wave surfing in her new book and economists walks into a brothel and other unexpected places to understand risk to Allison, the history of surfing is about how technologies that are designed to make the world safer in less. Risky can have the unexpected result of sometimes making it more dangerous more risky in the early days of big wave surfing around the nineteen forties, and nineteen fifties surfers had to be really fantastic swimmers and Allison says that was because back, then if you lost your surfboard in wipeout, you had to keep yourself above water without it. And if they wiped out they might have to swim three or four miles in really rough surf to get back to shore. So back then it was very small very elite group of people at the superhuman swimming skills. But then surfers started using a leash which attach is their leg to the surfboard allowing them to keep that board even after a wipeout. Allison says the leash did make surfing safer, but it also made it more likely that weaker swimmers would take up surfing in the first. Place and those weaker swimmers might take risks. They didn't understand because they thought the leash made them safe. Brian k Lana says he sees this every time a new technology makes surfing, a little bit safer when people think they can try to serve without a lot of training to fulfill fantasy, but they get wacked reality. You know, the their fantasies all den and you know, just reached the stars. But, you know, all of a sudden, they're eating the reefs and the bottom of the ocean. But the really big innovation in big wave surfing came later. And it came from Brian himself in the late nineteen eighties and early nineteen ninety s Brian was surfing at a tournament called the Eddy prestigious event. We're only a couple dozen of the world's best surfers were competing. And that is when Brian wiped out on that huge sixty foot wave. And while he was in the water wave after wave kept crashing down on him and he was in what surfers called the impact zone. That is the area where the waves are breaking the waves the strongest and where it is the hardest to swim out, Bryant was starting to get nervous. But then he saw something that he didn't expect. So, you know, I looked up and one of my friends came up with a standup jetski cinnamon, and he zoomed right in and looked at me and asked me all right. And I was just amazed that someone came into the impact zone. His friend couldn't grab because jetski was too small. But Brian says that seeing his friend completely calmed him and he had an epiphany if the technology now existed to get someone into the impact zone then that same technology could be used to rescue someone and get them out. So Brian learned everything he could about the new models of wave runners, and jet skis, and he started buying them and trying to attach sleds to the back of them, turn them into rescue vehicles to pull drowning surfers out of the waves after enough trial and error it worked, the jetski changed the sport of big wave surfing. Eventually, it was just understood that rescue teams using jetskis would be nearby. Anytime surfers were riding big waves, and one day, Brian, and another lifeguard. Even. Used jetskis to rescue seven servers, who could not get back to shore. But technology for me is double edged sword because with all proper training or problem, mental attitudes. It also sends a false sense of safety. Also out in lineup also, too. So I also see people taking more of a risk because they see the use of the jet skis there as well as petition devices not only were weaker surfers now getting into big wave surfing, because of the jet ski but strong surfers raising jetskis to get to bigger and bigger waves like eighty foot tall waves, this is called Toan surfing or the surface actually pulled behind jetski to these humongous waves. In other words, these strong surfers were using the jet ski which was supposed to make surfing safer to take bigger and bigger risks. And in fact, this is what reminded communist Alison, Schrager of financial markets. Just like a jet ski can make it safer to ride a big wave their financial products that can make it safer to invest your money because they limit how much money you can lose. And just the same way jetski can be used to take on bigger and bigger waves. Those same financial products can also make it easier to take a bigger risk with your investments, so you can make a lot more money if the investment goes up, but that also means that you can lose a lot more money. If your investments go down fact, this is kind of what happened during the financial crisis. That's right. And so the question is, what can be done to make sure that people are taking the right amount of risk either surfing or in finance. Well, if you're a surfer, you educate other surfers, and you participate in something called the big wave risk-assessment group safety summit on the north shore of wa who that's right. Surfers have their own risk. Some ad is amazing and wonderful. I want to the big waves for risk summit. I mean normally idea risks. Summit is not appealing, but through surfing in there, just sounds interesting Alison had the same thought she actually attended recent summit, one of the founders was Brian kill Ana. An says she was like kind of the personnel there, there were three women there. Probably like maybe fifty people. Okay. So again, like a pension risk conference. No light slide with a lot of math on it. Mostly men. But they were way better looking in a much better shape than it a pension risk conference. Probably a better tans super tan. Not a closed. Toed shoe in the room at the summit, surfers, go basic safety and rescue techniques, things like CPR, and they also learn about how waves break and then color code different surfing zones. Based on safety and even discuss how to use drones to signal wear a fallen surfer is drowning to alert rescue team all kinds of things. Yeah. So education is one way to help people manage risks. Another way is government regulation, which is what's used in finance. For example, sometimes there are restrictions imposed by the government on what kinds of financial products you can invest in. Those restrictions are based on how much money you have or whether you understand the risks that you're taking or other variables nine surfing. There are some regulations about using jetskis to ride big waves in Hawaii, but also says that generally speaking surfers are opposed to regulation. Also, the whole idea of like tons of surfing regular. Just seems counter tips or the whole ethos. Yeah. Supposed to be like laid back and relaxed not filling out things in triplicate true, though, surfers do still have debates for example about whether surfing should require training certification like scuba diving does or more recently about who should be allowed to wear new, inflatable, vests to ride big waves. And Allison's main point, is that whether it is surfing or financial products. These debates are definitely getting continue because even when people learn how to manage the risk that comes with a new technology, either through education or regulation or just from getting used to risk. Another technology can come along that introduces new risks that is surfing. It's also, by the way, the whole history of finance, a new financial product is introduced people take more risks. Sometimes there's even a crash or a wipeout. Yeah. And then new regulations are imposed until the next new financial product and the cycle starts over.

"Intelligent dot Schwab dot com, and by the listeners of K cloudy skies today with a slight chance of showers. We'll have highs in the fifties. The time is now six twenty two. It's morning edition on I'm Brian watt. Just a couple of months in in twenty nineteen is already a historic year for. Police transparency in California. That's thanks in part to a new state law that took effect January first opening public access to internal investigation files about serious police misconduct and major use of force. But we're also learning more about these cases because a group of journalists formed a coalition to seek out and report on them. He QE criminal Justice reporter sukey Lewis is one of them and she joins me. Hey sukey. Hi, brian. So I know is soon as the year started, you guys just started filing requests for these documents. What happened? Yeah. So January first at midnight. You know, we sent out this massive batch of public records act requests to hundreds of agencies across the state state agencies sheriff's departments local law enforcement, and we've been really stunned by how many requests we've been getting back more than ninety agencies have provided some kind of response, and in some cases, it's just an index. And in some cases, it's deep investigative files, including body Cam footage, and all of that and has the reporting that you've been able to do from these materials had any impact. Yes. O'brien just last week last Thursday charges were dismissed against this woman, Catherine jinks Vesta who through our reporting kind of came to light that her arrest was actually a wrongful arrest, and she shouldn't have been facing those charges. And so the DA there dropped the charges against her. And here is a cut from her. Boyfriend David Riley, who was just talking about how grateful they can have this behind them. We've been worried about that ever since that night. When all this crap happened. And uh. It's like a major relief for us and not have to worry about that part. And they more. I remember that story. But you filed a lot of requests are you getting something back on every one of them? No, it's kind of a mixed bag. Some agencies are just stalling kinda dragging their feet saying they're having trouble finding the records. You know, some are telling us in six months, we may get some and then others are refusing outright. And when that happens lawsuits. Yeah. So across the state and a number of different counties. Police unions are suing to block access to these records, and the argument that they're making and that they were trying to make even before the law went into effect on January. First is that the law is not retroactive. So does not apply to records already in existence? As of January first twenty nineteen. Now that is an argument that so far the judges in these cases have not largely been buying only one judge. Far in Ventura County. Kind of preliminarily said there's merit to that argument. But it is for the time being kind of stalling and stopping this access to records. And even the attorney general has said that they're not going to turn over records until this. This issue of the lawsuits is settled in the courts since okay Q, E D is actually joined a lawsuit against the attorney general to sue for access to their records in his possession about law enforcement employees of the department of Justice. Thank you sukey Lewis. Thank you Brian now to more investigative work by another reporter the science teams Lawrence summer as a candidate for President Donald Trump promised to get more water for California's farmers. He's followed up on that promise by speeding up key decisions about the water for two thirds of the state millions of acres of farmland and the fate of endangered salmon in her investigation. Lauren has found that. Speed is cutting the public out of the process. It's also undermining the work of scientists who make those decisions she joins us in Lauren. Let's I get clear on what is being decided yet. These are decisions that control California's water how much goes to farms and cities and how much has to stay in the ecosystem for endangered fish. And last fall, President Trump put out a memo that was very specific about this decision that it had to be made under unprecedented time pressure faster an ever has been made before which last time was ten years ago. And this raised a lot of red flags for people because right now at the interior department the nominee to be secretary is David Bernhardt who was a former lobbyist for Westlands water district, which is a heavy hitting agricultural water district. That's been very aggressive to getting its water supply and these decisions control the future of endangered fish as well as the fishing industry. Yes, that's because they control these massive water pumping plants in mental. Delta. They move water hundreds of miles a mistake. But they are so powerful they actually can kill and threaten endangered fish like endangered, salmon. So what these rules do is? They actually limit the pumping when the fish could be harmed, but actually limits the water supply that farms and cities get so what's happened. Now is the US bureau reclamation has put out a new plan for how it wants to run those pumps, and it would mean more water for central valley. Farmers potentially be not so good for the fish. So what did you find in your investigation? So now, there's this plan out there to federal wildlife agencies those biologists there have to look at this and say, well is this going to dry fish to extinction and teen some emails under the freedom of information act from these biologists. That have a lot of concerns in them already one is now that they have to do this review under this brand new time pressure from the president they say, they don't have enough resources to do it. They're understaffed and they have to make incredibly complex scientific decisions. I mean, this is water. It goes hundreds of miles. These are Fischler with very complicated life processes these are not easy decisions. And they're going to have to make them in sixty to eighty percent less time. And they've done it in the past. And so that's the scientists worried about how they can do their job. What about the public the public? Get a say in this. Yeah. So the last time these decisions were made the public could really kind of see what was happening. And that's because these decisions got some independent scientific review that's pretty standard in science, right? Other scientists read your work and tell you what they think the last time they had outside scientists review it the public can go to those meetings and see what was going on. But with this brand new time pressure from President Trump this time around the public will not have any access to information who will have access actually is the water districts that will be getting the water, and that's because of new federal legislation that says that the water districts get copies of these decisions when they're in draft form, and they get to provide comment about it.

"Learn more at Schwab dot com. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. President Trump painted his drive for a border wall last night in stark terms, how much more American blood must be shed. Before congress does it's an Oval Office address, the president talked of crime and drugs as we've noted elsewhere today. Most illegal drugs arrive in the US through legal ports of entry. But that was a central argument for barriers between those entry points last night. House speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer responded. Let's see if what we heard from President Trump's throughout this sense of shutdown has been full of misinformation, and even malice the president has chosen fear NPR, national political correspondent, Mara Liasson was listening to the speeches. Hi there. Mara. Steve. Did you hear anything new? I really didn't. If this was a TV show. It would have been a rerun both sides repeated the arguments we've heard before there was nothing in the president's speech that offered a new path to a compromise a kind of legalized the dreamers in exchange for well funding. That's something both sides have flirted within the past. And I. I think that the president needed to convince people the Democrats were intransigent because he initiated this shutdown and he didn't do that last night. You could argue that the White House is feeling more heat from the shutdown than Democrats. Otherwise, why would they be scrambling to mitigate the damage with I r s checks food stamps. Oh, confident that Democrats would be blade or. Yeah. Trying to get parts of the government to be functioning again, even though the race spending measures have not been passed. Well, let's say that they had gone for an original episode rather than a rerun as you said, what was the opportunity the president had last night. When speaking to the nation. I think the president had a couple of goals he needed to convince voters outside of his hardcore base that shutting down the government for a wall was the right thing to do. He also needed to keep Republicans in congress in line. He wants to stop Republicans from abandoning ship and starting to vote with Democrats to reopen. The government that's already started in the house and there about four or five Senate Republicans were making noises in the same direction and the third thing and perhaps the most important opportunity for him. Is he needed to show his base he was fighting and he needed to lay the groundwork for what might become the endgame of this whole controversy declaring a national emergency doing an. End run around congress and building the wall with Anaba located military money is there is there still actually a compromise in sight here Mara because we're talking about money. It's a few billion dollars, which is a lot of money. But in terms of federal budgeting, not all that much money. It's money for a barrier. Which is something that a lot of Democrats have voted for before is it actually fairly simple to compromise this if both sides were willing, I think congress if left to its own devices could probably come up with something. Remember, they had come up with something that the White House said, the president would sign and then when conservative talk show hosts raised a ruckus, the president changed his mind. But yes, you're right. The Democrats have voted for steel fencing in the past not a concrete wall. The president now says all he wants his steel fencing or a steel wall, but his insistence on the wall above every other priority has made the Democrats digging even deeper because they. Have a base to and the wall symbolizes for them everything they hate about Donald Trump Mara. Thanks very much for the update. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you. That's NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson in Pakistan, Islam logic, seminaries better known as Madris's are widely seen as places where students are indoctrinated with extreme interpretations of Islam when Pakistan's prime minister wants to change them.

It's expected to become sunny later with highs from the upper fifties to the low sixties the time is now six forty six. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. It is Ben more than a century since American soldiers seized three church. Bells from town in the Philippines. That was back during the Philippine American war in nineteen o one today. Those bells are being returned NPR's. Julie McCarthy has been following the odyssey of the bells and watched as they returned. And she joins us now to tell us the story. Hey, julie. Hi there. Can you just start off by telling us why these bells were taken in the first place. Well, it's nine hundred ninety one picture this. The United States is the colonial power in the Philippines on but the Filipinos fight for independence and before long. You've got a full blown US Philippine war on your hands. Where two hundred thousand people are dead now in this small place called Ballin Giga the US. Occupiers are jailing the men abusing the women destroying the food supply. And what are the locals do? They staged a revolt, and what do they do to us? A signal to launch at all the bells of Saint Lawrence, the martyr church. The local fighters end up killing two thirds of the American unit. Arguably the worst loss in the US Philippine war the US retaliates on their told per turn the place into a howling wilderness. They do and they carry off the bells as they go as booty. Wow. So what do these bells represent for the Philippines? Well, I guess you can imagine after a tale like that the bells volun- Giga come to be seen as a symbol of resistance. The struggle for independence. They signal a revolt against the imperial Americans who who ended up being slaughtered certainly for president Detaille Rodriguez. These are no question a symbol of resistance. He has sort of staked out a claim resisting the American administration where he can. And he has made this point of of of of of owning these bells he said last year in the state of the union that I want these bells back, we should demand them to come back and historian said to me, he's the winner out of all of this. Now, it's hoped that this will also smooth relations by bringing the two sides closer. But for how long really is the question. Right. But I imagine this was an incredible scene. I mean, what was it like when the bells came home? Oh, it was really wonderful. It was full of emotion in joy, and pride and it was full of history. The bells were flown in cargo plane, the spirit of MacArthur, the general who commanded the troops who liberated Philippines during World War Two. The US had taken the bells when they were the colonial power and went and when the Philippines was battling for them for. Independent. So they the these bells sort of tracked the whole relationship really in some ways at the start of that relationship and it now. Patient of their arrival things got even more charged when these burly servicemen couldn't break into the crates when they finally broke into them, and then hoisted them into the public view. There was a there is a big round of applause. They are in great condition, by the way. And. Yeah. And the US ambassador to the Philippines. Sung Kim said that lot of people had had a hand in bringing these bells from the highest levels of government to scholars to retired US personnel. And he talked about how it reflected the US Philippine relationship here. He is a shared history is enduring and deeply personal. It is my great honor to be here at this closing a painful chapter in our history, a painful chapter, but Julie just real quick. Why did it takes a long? Well, as one navy, captain who was very involved in this to me, it takes long time to change the sentiments and attitudes and people had fierce feelings about this. Everybody was bound up in a sense of valor on their own side as they described it NPR's Julie McCarthy with remarkable story. Thank you so much for sharing that till you appreciate it. Thank you.

"At Schwab dot com. It's thirty four on KCRW. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. A lot of folks are spending this week preparing four or maybe dreading a big family gathering for some families that will mean a little bit of drama and House Democrats. Well, they're doing the same thing sixteen Democrats have been waging an insurrection to oust leader Nancy Pelosi, one of them Tim Ryan of Ohio described it this way, we need to start having a family conversation about what direction we move in last night. Though, Nancy Pelosi seemed to knock out at least one of the competitors for her job NPR's. Kelsey Snell has been following all this family drama and joins us in the studio. Hey, Kelsey there. So Nancy, Pelosi's main competitor for the job of speaker, basically removed her name from consideration yesterday. Right. Yeah. Fudge came out, Marcia fudge, a who was Brumer to be challenging anti Pelosi came out and said that she wasn't going to be doing that. Now, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman. From Ohio and most people probably hadn't heard of her until last week when she kind of went from being an SNL parody as a person who's challenging Nancy Pelosi and kind of got elevated to this national stage. Right. Nancy Pelosi offered her a job tearing an reviving a committee of on elections as basically a subcommittee underneath of another committee to walk away and get in Pelosi's camp interesting. So he was enough of a leadership position that Marcia fudge decided it wasn't worth it to challenge Nancy Pelosi. Well, Marcia fudge said that it was a really important job. And that elections really needed to be paid attention to you. But this is part of what Nancy Pelosi does. And then she did it again later on in the evening. She creates new positions to empower new people. She did this last time that her job was up for a challenge. And at the time, she create, you know, creates these new jobs people who were already in leadership kind of complained that it makes it a little bit of a less exclusive place to be in House Democratic leadership. But the people who get let in get to feel a little bit more important. So does this mean Nancy Pelosi? She is safe at this point. Or are there other names being bandied about well, there are no other names being bandied about? But there are still the people the sixteen people on the letter. Remember, Marcia fudge didn't actually sign onto this big insurrection letter. Her name was just floated as somebody who could maybe replace Pelosi another potential person that that doesn't mean the Pelosi safe, but she's getting safer, and it really indicates the way that she's going to go about making herself. More insulated from threats to offer. People more power. I wanna play some tape from congressman Seth Moulton who was really out in front of this whole anti Pelosi campaign. Let's listen to this.

So investors can better own their tomorrow. Learn more at Schwab dot com. And from listeners like you who donate to this NPR station. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC. British Prime Minister Theresa may is in danger of losing her job. It seems to cabinet members quit yesterday and others are pressing for a vote of no confidence because they do not like the Brexit deal that she says would protect British jobs. I believe that this is a deal which does deliver that which is in the national interest. And I might going to see this through. Yes, Kim, Derek is the British ambassador to the United States, and he's on the line embassador. Welcome back to the program. Warning. Thank you for having do you assume the prime minister will prevail in this contest within her own party. I absolutely do as she says. She has done the best possible deal on Brexit on the delivers the objectives. The British people set when they voted for this back in June twenty sixteen I'm confident she will take it through. So what does that say about the ministers who are resigning or signing letters? Calling for a vote of no confidence are they just not being realistic about what is it chief -able, they can speak for themselves and in the British system if you disagree with an aspect of government policy, then resigning is the appropriate from the right thing to do. But I just point to a couple of very senior ministers who have strong supporters of Brexit. Liam Fox Michael g-o-v who've been out on the airwaves, this swooning, very strongly. Supporting the deal that the prime minister done as I say, it was a complex. It's never been done before she's delivered outcome that meets all the objectives. I'm confident she will now take it through into the repulsed to vote in parliament in a few weeks time, let me zero in on Michael Gulf because he is a figure who has something of a profile here is somewhat known here. He has been a leading Brexit tears. They're called right. Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm very commissioned Brexit here. But is saying that this deal is close enough. Good enough for him. Yeah. And he is a minister, I know, well, he's been out here. He's a very honorable, man. And he's said this morning that he supports it. He's interested in negotiating the uncompleted business, which is the text about the future relationship, and you'll have some objectives for that. But he is supporting withdrawal agreement the prime minister's negotiator. Well, let's be Frank about what this agreement is because we get down to the reality. Here. The reality is that in the face of a demand to leave the European Union. A Britain is now getting ready to sign onto a deal that for all practical purposes, leaves you in the European Union for some undetermined time to come while you try to figure out what you want to do in the future is that a fair summary. It's not a I mean, it's a summary is not completely. We will have the ability to negotiate and actually to sign. Everything's will implementing free trade deals with the rest of the world during this implementation period which runs to December twenty twenty but that deal gives the international business community certainty about the future. It gives us time to do the detailed negotiations on the future relationship with the European Union and it maintains Newhall border between Northern Ireland Republic violent while we negotiate all the details of that free trade deal. So it's a sensible pragmatic compromise. But it's a temporary arrangement and come December twenty twenty we will be out with that without free trade deal with the EU, but able to make deals with the rest of the world as well ambassador in the few seconds. We have left. What do you say to Americans who watched this governmental chaos that's rolled on for a couple of years now in Britain and start to? Worry about the governmental stability of one of America's closest allies. Theresa May has been prime minister since the people voted for leaving the European Union. She's taken this through. I think she's done an outstanding job extremely difficult negotiation. First time it's ever been tried and achieved I think she herself is a guarantee of stability and continuity. I think I'll parliamentary system is stood up well to the stresses and strains of this process. I feel that that we're coming into the final stages in good shape. Ambassador Kim, Derek, thanks so much. Thank you. Vote counting from last Tuesday's election goes on in many parts of the country in one big reason, it's taking so long is the need to match voter signatures with election files Mayland as well as provisional absentee and military ballots require voters to sign those ballots but signatures change over time. And that's causing a problem for election officials in some states, here's NPR's Brian Naylor. It used to be you'd sign on the bottom line. Whether it was a check or a credit card receipt or even a love letter. But the art of the signature has become less important and less practiced and that has meant less certainty for elections officials who have to decipher the signatures on voting ballots. It's a problem, especially for younger voters says Daniel Smith a political science professor at the university of Florida. Let's say you're a civically engaged. Sixteen year old you free. Register to vote in Florida which are allowed to do. You might have a signature that has a nice heart over the eye on your name. Is a sixteen year old, but you come to the university of forty you become a sophisticated gator. You're sticking sure now looks very different on your driver's license, which you got later on Smith who authored a study on the issue for the ACLU in Florida says it's the signature the voter created at age sixteen that's going to be the signature of record. So we have big issues certainly with younger people who signatures are not fixed in a digital world where you're signing your name with your finger on an ipad with the idea of having some definition of who you are as your identity tied to a signature that you may have done when you're sixteen that now disenfranchises you seem somewhat incompatible with the right to vote. Smith says his study found that younger voters were four times more likely to have their absentee ballots rejected then voters over age sixty five older people may not be of as firm hand. But still have their signature pretty well set another issue. He says is. Many elections officials aren't well trained in how to compare signatures. If you talk to people who are in France, if they know that you can't just match a signature with one other signature and have any confidence that it's the same individual who's written. Both of you need to have a range of different signatures that people signatures depending on the condition in which they're writing the signature that type of ten they're using. Whether they're doing it inside or outside is going to vary in Colorado where every voter receives a mail in. Ballot officials are well trained in how to read signatures amber mic Reynolds is a former director of elections for Denver. And is now director of the national vote at home institute. We actually brought in a handwriting expert to develop training materials, and he would come in every election cycle and train the judges on what to look for how to approach signature verification. All that mcreynolds says most big counties in Colorado use signature software that she says is more consistent than human is the biggest. Issue. She says is that there be enough time for voters who are told their signatures don't match to fix any discrepancies before the deadline for ballots to be counted passes in Washington state, for instance, counties have three weeks to count ballots as long as they are postmarked by election day in California. They have a month to finish their work. Brian Naylor, NPR news, Washington. This is NPR news. Bernie Krause records nature some of his tapes, go back half a century.

Why Ecuador Uses The Dollar?

"We didn't have to change the currency before. And after they have soup gray as their type of money now, they have dollars. How did they get the money for Ecuador without causing inflation and doesn't affect the money supply here in the USA, and how did they get the money there? How in how come they don't do it for other countries like them in the Republican Mexico into lumpia Omer gosh younger for president Sunday. Right reheard this super question. And after we listened to station I were like, we'll get back to you mean research. It's not that we don't know the answer because we do. It's just that you know, we want to care.

So bianca's question. Now, there are a few parts to this question. So we wanted to break it down. So we could answer it properly. The first why does Ecuador use the dollar now instead of its old currency the sucre second where did Ecuador get all these dollars third. Does it affect the money supply in the US, and why don't other countries use the dollar to answer all of the parts of this question. We wanted to go to an expert. So we called up in a communist was studied Latin America. And in fact, just got back from a trip to Ecuador Sebastian Edwards on the Henry Ford. The second professor at UCLA. Okay. So Sebastian first of all that's a pretty smart cookie. Isn't isn't she? Amazing a nine and a half years old. That's how I wish my MBA students ask that kind of question. So we started by asking Sebastien, why Ecuador started using the dollar back in the year two thousand. Mean just before getting rid of the domestic which as Bianca said school, the sucre? There was a handwritten percent evasion within this country that three percent four percent is pretty high percent. So just think what it is a hundred percent inflation. That's amazing. That means prices were doubling every year Ecuador had a big inflation problem. And this was not the first time. The problem was that. This was recurrent it happen. Every so many years back in the days when Ecuador's currency was the Suka these inflation problems just kept happening. Remember inflation is when prices go up, and when prices go up by too much, people get worried because it means they cannot by as much stuff with the money. They make it their jobs, and it's just really unsettling and Sebastian's is a big reason this kept happening was that the country's central Bank was not doing a very good job. The Ecuadorian central Bank had the ability to. Print money like any other central Bank. And when it printed too much money that meant there were too many sucrose this flowing out around in the economy to be spent on the same number of goods. So the price of those goods went way up that is inflation. So would Ecuador did is that it central Bank could not discipline itself and more than that pretty much responded to the will of quality, which is very different from what we do in this country where the Federal Reserve is a independent entity. And where the members of the fed kind of be fired at least not easily by the executive the president. So that wasn't happening Ecuador. So they were printing too much money, and they were abused a central Bank was abusing its power. And generating these burst of inflation. Every so often Ecuador wanted to end these bursts of inflation. So it's politicians looked at another Latin American country that also uses the US dollar. Panama and Ecuador's politicians noticed at Panama did not have these inflation problems the way Ecuador did. And they figured we can do that too. So they did now beyond also asked us how did they get all the dollars down there? That is a great question. Remember Ecuador cannot create US dollars only the US can create US dollars. So Ecuador had to bring US dollars in from the US. Here Sebastian that is generally done through an agreement between the local authorities and the Federal Reserve so the dollars are shipped in and they are put into eighty ends and into banks, and then people have a period of time when they can exchange at a given ratio their local currency the sucre for dollars. Yeah. But there's another important question here, which is doesn't Ecuador have to. To pay for those new dollars. The answer is yes, when you don't have guarantee of your own, and you use the dollar you cannot print dollars. If you're Ecuador quitter so in order to get more dollars, you need to sell to the US more bananas or more chocolate Ecuador has wonderful chocolate industry that it's being developed now or you have to sell more oil than would import. So you have to run a surplus in your international trade in order to get in more dollars than what you're paying out. So that the economy can expand and have more dollar liquid. In other words, Ecuador gets these new US dollars by selling its goods outside of the country in exchange for US dollars things like oil mainly, but yeah. Other stuff like chocolate and bananas. And you know, what dollarisation? Has mostly worked out for Ecuador inflation has been low and stable ever since Ecuador made the switch and as Sebastian told us he learned from his recent trip. Ecuadorian seemed to be pretty fine with it. I asked to everyone I met waiters and waiters in restaurants taxi drivers, everyone whether they wanted to back to the Sukree, and I could not find a single per node one, and maybe a couple of theoretically collumnist, but common people in the streets of Ecuador. Just don't want to do it. They are happy with the way the system is working. They like stability and predictability prices are not going to double overnight or in a year time, I say did in the past younger also asked if Ecuador having dollars affects the money supply in the United States and the short answer is not that much. The Federal Reserve is supposed to create an appropriate amount of dollars for the US con. Emme and some of those dollars do end up in Ecuador. And then they stay in Ecuador, which does make the federal little trickier. But the US economy is almost two hundred times bigger than Ecuador's economy. So in practice, it just doesn't make that much of a difference. Finally, Bianca asked us why other countries don't also switch to the US dollar. Now, remember using the US dollar. Now means that Ecuadorian politicians cannot print more money whenever they want. That is what led to all the inflation. But win their economy is in recession that is when you want to be able to print more money to get the economy moving again like we did in this country during the financial crisis Ecuador can't do that. So it's recessions might be deeper and might last longer when things start going bad other countries did not want to give up that option to fight a recession the way Ecuador did. So it's a tradeoff switching to the dollar can bring more stability, especially to countries with bad central banks. But it can also mean sacrificing the ability to. Your own economy when things get bad, and that's it. That's what we found. So we wanted to call Bianca up and give her our answer. Hey beyond Bianca. Hello. Hey, how's it going? Okay. So did we answer your question? Yes. Was there? Interesting and we had so much been looking for the answers innkeeper answering. My question.

What was it that finally got him banned from this particular platform? Yeah. Twitter said that Jones at info wars simply crossed the line. And when Twitter announced this in a series of tweets yesterday. It didn't point to a specific thing that Jones and info wars had done over the better part of the past twenty four hours. But it wasn't the first time that he. Had violated the rules. And when I spoke with somebody at Twitter, they said one thing that weighed very heavily on them was the way that Jones conducted himself outside of a congressional hearing where Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey was testifying about the way that the company moderates content online Jones, essentially went after Republican Senator Marco Rubio erupted one of his press conferences, he yelled at Dorsey at one point as he was trying to leave the building. And then he live streamed an incident where he was attacking CNN reporter hurling. Verbal insults on him that video was broadcast on periscope, which is the live streaming site owned by Twitter. And so in the minds of the company essentially was too much. He had gone too far. And so they kicked him off the site interesting. Although you mentioned that video was streamed on periscope a lot of this was happening. I r L right like real life, not even on the Twitter platform, and they're like still this has to stop yet has to stop in Twitter has talked about this in the past that it definitely thinks about content in real life. Things you do off the site when it makes decisions about how to handle your content on the site because Twitter recognizes that. If you're promoting harassment. If you're spreading hate speech. It's the sort of thing that could affect will users. It could have a serious impact on them and their health and their safety. And in the past Twitter has yelled at Jones for precisely this behavior. The last time that he got in trouble at the end of August Twitter imposed a seven day suspension because Jones took to a video and said that he encouraged his supporters to take up quote battle rifles against journalists and people on the left and some of his critics that to Twitter was a threat of violence is the sort of thing that the company has been under pressure to clamp down on. And these are the kinds of things that Jack Dorsey was presented with when he was testifying. He's being called to account for the things that transpire on his site. He was answering questions from lawmakers on the hill. Let's play a clip of what he had to say. We're extremely proud of helping to increase the accessibility. And velocity of a simple free and open exchange. We are proud of how that free and open exchange has been weaponized unused to distract and divide people. And. Our nation. That's a new recognition for Twitter to acknowledge that the platform is being abused. They are under pressure to make changes because if they don't congress is probably gonna step in. Yeah. Dorsey sees the nastiness on there. And when I spoke with Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey just a few weeks ago. He said that the company is rethinking the very core of the product the way, it displays everything from follower counts to the like button to try to think about the kinds of behaviors good and bad that the site itself incentivizes. But you're right. This is the sort of thing that lawmakers are beginning to demand companies like Twitter and its peers like Facebook and Google begin to take seriously. And if they don't they face the threat of regulation, and while we don't know exactly what that would look like if you're a tech company, the one thing, you don't want is more regulation. Right. And you probably don't want to have to come up to Capitol Hill and wear a suit jacket again, Tony Romm of the Washington Post. Thanks so much. We appreciate it. Thanks for having me, the non traditional college student has become traditional a seventeen million students attending college. This fall. Most have some way in which they do not fit the classic..
