Police chief’s decision to quit may have just saved Seattle from itself
"Of their? Why did she resigned so abruptly? So chief Carmen best made history, becoming the first black female police chief in Seattle, and this was what the community wanted. She was someone who spent almost three decades as a police officer. Here. She was celebrated. But obviously there were calls to defund the police. The Seattle City Council decided tow lean into what the activists wanted. And they decided to adopt this policy of defunding by 50%. Now, they quickly realised they couldn't actually defund by 50% because we have AH, Union and you can't just cut all of that. Willy nilly. So they decided, however, to make some significant cuts that would have fired not just 100 police officers within the next few weeks, but also they've made the move. To slash her salary, but not just common best salary by by 40%. But they also cut the salary of all of her command staff. Now they ended up walking back some of the numbers, but she came back and she said, Look, Number one. This was personal. This felt vindictive, and I'm not going to allow that. This was disrespectful, but number two The irony in all of this over the last year and 1/2 we've been spending a lot of time and energy. In fact, the council gave $1.6 million to recruit new police officers of color and under the policy, we would have to fire those 100 officers are but newest hires. They're primarily officers of color. We tried to diversify this this police force and you're now telling us the fire all the black officers. We just hired I'm not going to do that. And she said, Yeah, I'm done. I'm stepping about and I think in it, I think she might have just saved the city of Seattle. We'll see where this ends up going. But she meant a lot to the city. And it truly embarrassed the council that up Until this point, it kind of felt like they were not capable of embarrassment. Right. But, you know, I really feel like she is a sincere woman, a sincere person. She loves that city and she didn't feel like she could keep it safe with the budget cuts and taking Was it a significant amount of money they're going to take from her paycheck. Yeah, they're so originally was going to be 100,000. I think the end result was like 40,000. It wasn't about the money and it wasn't about the protester. She flatly said. I will not fire the cops. I just worked my tail off to recruit. I'm not going to fire them and that she should be commended. That's what that is a heroic stand to take because she really highlighted the absurdity of this all. And when does her resignation take places it immediate Nina. It's September 2nd or third time She went 1/2 weeks. And do they have anybody on board or on in term? So they've got an interim. But the mayor said she's not going to even start the process of looking for a new police chief because she doesn't know number one what the job actually entails, because this council won't be clear as to what they want the job entail and number two, she flatly said. Who would want to take this job? Who would want to work here at the police chief, and she's 100% right? Yeah, she's on to something. There. She is a 1,000,000,000

"Is leaving. She's going ahead and retiring. Does anybody blame her at all? Seems like a really sharp woman. Her name is Carmen best. Can I just make a recommendation to you? Here is a smart idea. Mark Meadows, members of the Trump administration. Find a position for this woman high profile position. On addressing social unrest in the country. Put her in charge. You know, I'm not in favor of these silly czar positions. But if there were ever a hey, situation where you wanted to do something that'll make a mark. Now is the time to do it. Carmen best. She's going to be free very soon. She announced her resignation yesterday, saying she was not leaving because of pay cuts to her department, but because the lack of respect Toward her fellow officers. The City Council decided to reduce the department buy as many as 100 officers through layoffs and attrition. In response to a reporter who asked of her decision was motivated by protesters who appeared at our home earlier this month or the City Council's decision, Best said. It's not about the money and it's certainly not about the demonstrators. I mean, be rial. I have a lot thicker skin than that. It's really about the overarching lack of respect for the officers, the men and women who work so hard day in and day out. She added. The idea that we've worked so incredibly hard to make sure our department was diverse that reflects the community. We serve to just turn that all on a dime and hack it off. Without having a plan in place to move forward. Highly distressful. By the way, Miss Best is the city's first black police chief. A retirement is effective September 2nd, I'm confident the department will make it through these difficult times. You truly are the best Police department country and please trust me When I say the vast majority of people in Seattle support you and appreciate you This is a much her crap in an email to police. Seattle spared Jenny Durkin. Said she accepted best decision with a very heavy heart. Yeah, right. I deeply regret, she concluded the best way to serve the city and helped the department was a change in leadership and hope that would change the dynamics to move forward with the City Council. A military veteran best join the department, back in 1992 worked in a wide variety of roles, Cleaning patrol media relations, narcotics operations, and his deputy chief. The mayor picked best in July of 2018 2 leave the department. She had been serving as interim chief. By the way, Council members approve the cuts. On Monday, measures would cut less than $4 million departments for $100 million. In their annual budget. City Council also cut best for salary. Which was $285,000 the pay of other top police officers. This this is just you know what this is? Not only is this political What this is. It's This is personal. It's just nasty. This is just a way to strike out at police. The airplane people for wanting to quit. I wouldn't Let us go out to Randy Gin, Charlotte. Good morning. Hey, How you doing? Welcome back. Well, thank you very much. Yeah, I wanted to, uh, change up your narrative a little bit. It's not people are against Police officers against bad police. How do you deal with bad police officers by taking steps against all police officers? That's what you're getting wrong. Okay. Explain this to me, Randy, You're not taking it. I'll get offices. I don't know where you see that. It's a bad officers that are causing the so why. Okay, let's let's just stop. Let's just stop for a minute. Let's break this down, okay? Let's talk specifically about this woman who is the police chief of Seattle. Okay, Carmen best. Please tell me what Carmen Best did to deserve a pay cut because we were dealing with the pandemic. No, it's not about the pandemic. Grandi. Come on, You know better than that. That's not about the pandemic. This's about taking a swipe at the police department. And it and it what it is. It's just It's just thoughtlessly taking shots at them just because we can This's what I called to say. Good, said. I was just saying that the narrative needs to be changed that it's against good cops is against backup. That's that's the truth to that. But Camilla Harris That's not my favorite VP pick. But if the Trump administration decides to go, they're going to lose either way, because this is a very smart woman. On. I think they need to just leave her alone. Well, I mean, you heard what I said earlier. Don't one thing you do not want to do is have any conversations. Ah, about her race or anything like that. Leave that alone. That would be the dumbest thing they could possibly do. Well, you know, the president is so well. Time will tell Randy. Well, I appreciate your call. I'm sure you will talk. Ah, my goodness. Let's go in next to Tim in Charlotte. Good morning, Tim. Little Vincent. Oh, Coakley, disparaging the Irish was Kamala Harris. Are you Irish? And you saying you don't claim her? Is that what you're saying? I am. I am Irish. I'm Irish and German. But you said that I swear about the road, man. I'm a tree out of it. That wouldn't have been on you it of it on mate. Purcell. I personally I just think she's just a angry lady. Number one number two. I find it fascinating if somebody called you a racist for me a racist. As they said in the cartoons with foghorn with foghorn Leghorn them fightin words. I can't tell you right now. I've spoken to you before, and I've listened to you for a long time. You're you and I and so many of us who? Here you're racist. You're raised. It angers us because that was that was such a disparaging word. Growing up, and it was probably disparaging for everybody who grew up kind of my age on 54 I just think it's fascinating. They can bury the hatchet. And they all she was caught up in the moment. You know, she might have been joking about that. Yep, That's one of the things that she's gonna have to answer for. Now.

AI Tries to Save the Whales
"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

What Are The Impacts Of Disbanding Seattle's Navigation Team?
"Seattle Police Department is trying to figure out how to implement newly approved budget cuts from the City Council. On Monday, the council voted in favor of cutting the department's budget by 14% for the rest of the year. Counsel suggests making cuts to the SWAT harbor Patrol and mounted officers as well as eliminating the navigation team, which responds to homeless camps comes Matt Markovich and marry Nam discussed the impact of those cuts. They're cutting the navigation team, but there's a lot more to that team. Mayor Durkin hacks. He has until Wednesday of next week to decide if she wants the veto that Monday action by the council That included those s Seattle police department cuts but also cut aspects of the outreach workers that go out with him and some cleanup crews. Now we caught up with what the city calls system navigators at Albert Davis Park in Lake City. Part of the navigation team. A year ago, the city would not even allow a tent in a city park. But because of Cove it, city officials are allowing that to happen. Now, Many City council's members say the navigation team is all about sweeping homeless camps like this one. And defunding. The police department aspect of the team was nearly unanimous this week, but a closer vote 5 to 4 vote. They chose to also defund the outreach portion of the team that tries to get people in those shelters and services. And some of the crew's that cleanup the camps in the removed biohazards. Over the last several months, There's been a shift in strategy with the city outreach workers entering these camps without police. The city Human Services Department says it's been effective. They had 400 referrals into shelter in 80% increase over the previous quarter and 104 we were able to identify 149 individuals in rolling into shelter. The only felt I'm just very long. Five months were from litigation. So for our little neighborhood is in use is absolutely devastating because we could Zero support. From any of the city officials and the neighbors across from the Lake City Park. Tell me they've seen countless set countless emails to elected officials about the crime from the homeless camp. And have heard nothing. But they praise the efforts of the outreach workers trying to get the people in the camp in the shelter. Now, one of those campers that lived at the park told me he wants to stay put because his co bit He doesn't want to go to Congress shelter any kind of shelter because he'd rather stay outdoors. And that was the settlement across a lot of homeless camps that we've been to the last couple weeks because the narrowest of margins was passed well, actually Council voted by the narrowest margin to eliminate outreach workers. We're hearing that there is some talk behind the scenes that they could possibly Change that we're going to find out again. We're all waiting for Mayor Durkin decide on Wednesday. If she's going to veto this huge package that defunded SPD Mary that we are seeing more of these homeless encampments pop up not just in downtown Seattle but in neighborhoods across the street from parks near schools now, so what are the current conditions? That would prompt a camp removal. And then who would do that? If the navigation team is eliminated? The current condition is there. No sweeps or camp removal is right now because of Cove it because what CDC guidelines And the city basically backtracked on its policy of allowing people to go in camps as long as tense aren't oven obstruction or a health hazard hazard to other people. Like being right in the middle of a sidewalk, then they're going to be allowed to stay. That's kind of the orders of navigation team happens if the navigation team is gone, both police officers an outreach We don't know what's gonna happen in terms of a violent camp violent camp. The police will go in and deal with crime issues in some of these camps. But again, it's gonna be upto officers. I may not have been trained how to deal with these homeless camps. They may be going into these camps in the future Couples MAD Markovich and marry Nam
It's Hot Out West: Interview with Seattle Storm's Jordin Canada
"What's going on WB Fans Meg mcpeek I am so happy to be joined by our guest Jordan Canada. She is one of the up and coming superstars in the WMBA. She obviously plays for the Seattle storm coming off a win and you know without introducing her I've got to talk about some of the accolades because you can't mention Jordan Canada and not talk about defense in this league. Here's a two, thousand, nine, hundred, wnba. All defensive first team one, she's a WNBA champion with the Seattle Storm Two thousand eighteen sweeping the Washington mystics open. Guess what she was drafted number five overall by Seattle and I think my favorite fun fact about Jordan is the fact that you are the first. Woman. First Woman in PAC twelve conference history to score eighteen hundred points. Record seven hundred assists in you joined one of the best to ever do it in Gary Payton. In I. I. think that is probably the coolest thing as well. I don't know about you. I'm so excited to have you on the show first off. Happy Belated Twenty Fifth Birthday. How was it? In the bubble. Thank. You obviously, it was quite different. I didn't really get to do much. So I had practice and then I came back and I kinda just chilled That's pretty much I can do is I've been inside the bubble but I've. Sydney gifts my parents sent me a little birthday cake and some edible arrangements. So I got to celebrate just That's amazing. I'm a big fan of the edible arrangements myself. So I am super jealous about that and you mention you know being limited on what you can do in the bubble how is life going in the bubble and? To that point what has been your favorite thing to do not hoops related. The honest we come and don't have much here. We have a pool at the legacy hotel, which is right right up. The street you can save because we're all in villa. So we have a pool that we can go to I. Know they have like early morning golf lessons. and that's pretty much it. That's all we have So for the most part I mean, if you're with your teammates hanger with team You. Aims walking by because we're all in the same areas. Say hello to each other and speak to you know speech our friends and that's pretty much a practice and you come back to your villa. You'd relax and chill we go to games I'm. Really all that we have are you try to make the most of it I? Mean I'm very simple. So it doesn't bother me as much I'm such an introvert. I'm a homebody. So mostly in my room, some of most time just watching TV and stuff. So it's been fine in the beginning of a little bit rough I know something. Terrible living conditions would it where they were saying and stuff but I never had a problem with it but it's been much better You know we've only been here a little over a month. So it's getting better and I think we're just getting used to the conditions of the environment. I'm so happy I actually have something in common with Jordan Canada I am very introverted as well and homebody. So it's good to know if I was in the bubble I would be able to survive with like you said the Gulf I'd be able to hit up. So that'd be pretty cool and it's always fun to relax outside at the pool when you have an off day. So I, know when things being in the bubble and the season being much different than what you're accustomed to. Of course, the news before heading down to a Bradenton geared kloppenburg would be filling in again for coached in Hughes just because of the health concerns with his previous health and cove nineteen how has the team been in contact with coach hugues while being in the bubble? How have you all and coach Kloppenburg still managed to integrate coach us into the day to day of the season. I mean, well, we kind of had a little bit of of that last year when our coaches out when need. Your cancer in remission stuff so. We kinda had. A few games in the season without him and we kinda had to, you know do without him and adjust, but he's always been very active and engaged with us. He I know he talked to the coaching staff allow he does takes me call me from time to time just to talk and catch up I. Don't know about the other players but yet he's just been very engaging in still keeping contact i. know the coaches do a good job of You know talk to him and him incorporating things that he sees while he's. Just, something that he wants us to do Argos very that in. So having a coach Klopp no, be the interim goes like he's had experienced last year being you know in position than he's done a great job and you know we also have like sue bird who's technically light a coach he knows that they're helping. US as well. So we have a lot of help but I know that you know we we really do Miss Dan and I know he's cheering us on from home and you know work continuing to pray for him after thought. So it's it's been a good experience at amazing and it's as if you have done this media before because we me Perfectly with mentioning sue bird and for fans that may not be aware two, thousand nineteen with sue being out with her injury. You were basically thrust in your second season into the starting role and leading this team from the point guard position and being a vocal leader at such a young age in your career. Can you tell us just how that adjustment was? Last season and dealing with that, and even if you know as you mentioned is basically an extra coach with the team on the floor now that you've got her back in the lineup, how how was that transition for you and what advice did she give you throughout last season? It was it was It was tough. I would say there was a lot of ups and downs during that season. It's very hard coming from and you're you know one of the star players on the team you're playing a lot of minutes and you come into a team that's fully stagnant at the see. Find Yourself and my rookie year I had a hard time finding my role I was very up and down I, kind of lost a little bit of my confidence. So it was it was a hard adjustment and then going overseas having to be thrust back into a starting position than have to you know get that leadership back in that confidence bag. So I think that really helped a lot going into two thousand, nineteen season I mean obviously, I didn't expect to be out but because. I was prepared and I gained a little bit my confidence back. I was able to just we know set Ryan in. Obviously there have been subscription ups and downs during that season and trying to learn as I go but sue was a big help. I mean the the best advice that she gave me was don't worry about trying to fill my shoes in in trying to be like me just play your game I know once I came into the league, everyone was talking about Oh. Jordan and ensue in is Jordan going to be able to about up to sue in an expectations and so she told me not to worry about that lying just go out inches player game two point guards, two different types of styles. But what I bring to the table is very important to the team, and so I keep that in mind last year and just trying to play my game and not. The. You know the outside noise and just Do What my team needed to do and I kinda, you know gained a lot of confidence in that and incoming in this season and having Birdie back. I mean like I? Say We're two different point guards in two different styles and if you've watched this play the season, you can kinda tell the difference of when I committed in when she's in. So it's just great to see that you know we're able to play together and you know still Kinda or me keep up the pace with the team when I'm coming in and not have a a low or did. when sue comes out so it's just been awesome experience so far she's been a tremendous help and in my growth all around. How important was that advice that she gave you of reminding you don't try to be me be yourself like how how integral was that inner growth especially, you mentioned now having her back. was very helpful I mean coming into it team like I said I was fully back in playing behind one of the. Honestly. The best point guards ever played the game I mean, that's kind of like nerve wracking and still you have your own expectations like I don't want to screw I don't. WanNa. Come in to a team as police tag playing behind the best point guard ever and you know fail I. Mean there's some of the things I not to think about my rookie year in having her tell me that especially a veteran who's been as game for so long you know she didn't have to tell me that she didn't have to step aside and say, Hey, like don't worry player game don't worry about outside noise expectations just just play your game in big about the team and you which you need to do to to get us to where we are and so to have that advice as such. Early stage in my career was is extremely helpful and it has helped me at times. I think about those times she says that it just calmed down because I know there's been times in the season last year this year where I get super rattle and try to do too much in that think about. That, like calmed down, relaxing, get back to who I am as a player. So to have that to have that advice as A. Data Mark Career is a blessing in Zomba's very thing for her.

The Hippie Skyjacker, Cathy Kerkow
"On October Sixth Nineteen fifty one amid the lush forests and clear lakes of Coups Bay. Bruce and Patricia cargo brought their first child into the world. They named her Catherine Marie Cocco Kathy to her family and friends by nineteen, Fifty, seven, six year old Kathy had three younger brothers and two unhappy parents. She was too young to understand her mom and dad's problems but old enough to notice that her father was particularly detached though Bruce worked as a truck driver to support his family he dreamed of a life as a musician unfortunately, that wasn't the type of career one could have in coups bay especially with four young children to feed. But while Kathy's father felt trapped in frustrated, he loved his kids. So he tried his best to stick around for them. One day during the summer of Nineteen, fifty-nine Bruce and Patricia to children out for a picnic eight-year-old Kathy, an adventurous type slipped off with one of her brothers to catch salamanders. As they caught critters in jars to black boys, approached her and her brother although she didn't know Roger and see Venice Junior by name Kathy recognized them. The holder family had been the talk of the town after a racially charged attack on one of the youngest sons as Venice junior watched the to unsupervised Kirk Oh kids. He saw an opportunity for retaliation he wanted. To beat them up like the other kids had done to his own brother but Roger wouldn't have it instead ten year old roger approached the girl with glasses and asked what she was doing with the Tadpoles. Kathy corrected him. She was catching salamanders. Roger enjoyed the girls spunk but his brother pulled him away he and Cathy waved goodbye hoping to see each other again. Ultimately however, the budding friendship was cut short when just four days later, the holder suddenly moved to California but Kathy wouldn't forget Roger Holder and their argument over Amphibians. In. The latter years of her childhood Kathy, watched her parents relationship completely deteriorate by the time she turned ten her father's musical ambitions had finally gotten the better of him. He ran off to Seattle in hopes of making it in the big city. This forced Cathy's mother Patricia to take over as the family breadwinner. Meanwhile, Kathy had no choice but to keep the household running and look after her three younger siblings before we continue with Kathy, psychology please note that I'm not a licenced psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have done a lot of research for the show. According to sociologist Monica Kirkpatrick Johnson when kids are forced to take on serious responsibility, they view themselves as older than they are. This is called subjective age and can lead adolescence to believe their maturity levels exceed those of their peers as Kathy's mom took on a full time secretarial job kathy nature her brothers were fed clothed and always ready to go to school on time in many ways, she became the second parent in the home. If, the child chooses to take on additional burdens that will likely manifest into positive characteristics down the line but negative effects may emerge when a child is forced into roles that demand them to perform as though they're older than they are Kathy may have appeared wise beyond her years but really she was merely mimicking adult behaviors. This type of pseudo maturity May. Increase. The likelihood of problems like substance abuse and increased sexual activity in adolescence for Awhile Kathy showed no signs of any behavioral issues she continued to care for her younger brothers as she always had an she applied that same level of dedication to her studies taking on many extracurriculars when she started high school among them were choir, Latin club track and community service. But by sixteen something changed with her brothers now, older county didn't feel so obligated to spend her time caring for them more than that acting like an adult for so long had taken its toll on Kathy, who still repressed the pain and anger from her parents separation. Unable to escape her resentment she rebelled she quit the track team dropped out of choir and stopped volunteering. Kathy dumped her boyfriend for a twenty something beach bomb every attempt her mom may discipline Cathy was met with verbal sparring. When eighteen year old Kathy graduated high school in June of Nineteen sixty-nine, her prospects looked bleak while others left with career goals and college plans Kathy kept dating and partying. So for the next two years, Kathy bounced from one random gig to another unable to hold anything down at first it was just laziness. Eventually, her indiscretions escalated while working at a drugstore she stole amphetamines for her friends when she was caught and subsequently fired it didn't seem to bother her in the slightest to make ends meet. Cathy resorted once more to theft.
"seattle" Discussed on Seattle Now
"We still don't have all the information and but one of the things that I was hearing about or parents getting together for you know impromptu learning pod, an idea that they would get kids together to do this online learning like in a backyard or at somebody's house people are forming these pods that could cost money could not cost money could just be a way to help parents you know work from home and have their kids home and occupied in. Then also, of course, there's a lot of concern that kids are not having the social emotional skill building opportunities that they normally wouldn't school, and so a lot of parents just. Say Hey I want my kid to be around their friends or other kids their same age because they need to be around other young people and not just inside with the grown-ups all day long. So lots of different approaches and I know that there's also been concerned about the equity or inequity of the pods and especially if people are hiring tutors. To try to their kid on track that the many families who cannot afford tutors will then have their kids be falling behind, and then you'll have these. You know multi tiered system where some kids are staying on track and other kids just falling further and further behind academically. So that has been a concern that a lot of people have been raising but. Has To figure out a solution in some of the part of the solution is childcare and splitting other families can be one affordable way to make that work. and. There will be some people who will have to put their kids in fulltime childcare and another concern that I have heard is that those childcare workers will have to oversee these zoom classes during the day while their kids are enrolled in the program right? Right and it's you know it's hard to see how that could you know wide-scale be very successful because the skills you have as a teacher in. The skills you have as a childcare worker are different childcare workers are in many cases, minimum wage workers who are now being asked to take on this additional, very weighty role, and at the same time they're concerned about their safety during a DEMOC-. So it's really complicated and it'll be interesting to see how it plays out and to what extents childcare centers really play ball and take on that role as. Minders really overseeing right as as overseers of of children's schoolwork. And here's what I want to know if a child completely takes this year because online learning isn't working for one reason or another what will that mean for them? You know, how will we help them? What will that mean if that's a high schooler who needs to use these grades in college transcript? Where will we go? You know when we learn the things we learn from this year arrate I'm in the spring, you know one of the things that made it easier was that attendance wasn't being taken in Seattle public schools and grades were essentially not being given that almost every student got an a. unless they were. In the small group of students who got incomplete, but this fall they will be taking attendance are expected to give grades. That is something that the state has said should be in place this fall, and these will be things that families are much more concerned about in many cases the question of how this will affect children. Long term I think has lots of different layers and I think that for a lot of folks who care very much about kids their number one concern is how this will affect kids socially and emotionally how are going to come out from this as kind of whole people more than will they be? Calculus this year or maybe we'll have to wait till next year maybe they'll never ace it. You know what does that mean but I think that there are certain things I pointed out that you can catch up on you can catch up on your French and your Algebra and your social studies, and it's a lot harder to catch up on the intense pressure of trying to be a stay students at the same time that we're in a global pandemic. Well Cornfeld I've heard for more than one teacher..
"seattle" Discussed on Seattle Now
"Hey. It's Patricia Murphy. It's Tuesday and this is Seattle now. Schools weren't prepared to shift to online learning in the spring when they shut down because of the pandemic Seattle schools had all summer to think about remote learning this fall. So we'll be ready KYW, education reporter and Dorn Feld is here to give us an update but first, let's get you caught up. There's lots of news from City Hall to get to starting with big news from the chief of Police Carmen. Best who says she'll be stepping down in a message to the Seattle PD last night, the city's first black woman to serve as chief says, it was a difficult decision but quote when it's time, it's time best wrote. Mayor Durkan thanked best for her nearly thirty year policing career in Seattle. The mayor said, she hoped that a change in leadership would make it possible to change the dynamic at the city council. We're expecting to hear more from the chief and the mayor this morning stay with Kyw and kyw dot org for updates all day. Meanwhile in what's looking like very related news. It wasn't fifty percent, but the city council says the cuts to, SEATTLE PD's budget our down payment on more to come the council voted seven to one yesterday on an updated budget that cuts more than three million dollars from the department's remaining funds. This year cuts were made to mounted patrol school resource. There's Homeland Security Harbor Patrol Swat and navigation teams. The council also capped summaries for the department's top brass, but abandoned an earlier plan to cut the police chiefs pay the chief saying she took that one personally Shamma sawant was the only holdout calling in and austerity budget that fails to de-fund the police. and. A football note, huskies and cougars fans may find out today if they'll be any college games in the fall leaders of the pack twelve conference schools are scheduled to meet to discuss the possibility of playing. But the speculation yesterday was that it's not looking good at U. DUB nine student athletes out of about two hundred fifty have tested positive for corona virus so far high schools across the state have already pushed their football season's to spring. Last spring when Seattle public school students were sent home, most parents were reeling in crisis mode trying to figure out how to manage what very quickly became a homeschooling situation. Thanks to cope. We're getting ready to start up all that remote learning again last week the Seattle School Board gotta look at the district's plan and didn't like what they saw now the board. is scheduled to vote on an updated version that hasn't been made public. The bottom line September is coming and so far. There's no plan kyw, education reporter and Dorn. Feld is following this and joins us hi Anne Hi, Trish. So I know a lot of parents are desperately details of any plans for September and remote learning what has the district made public so far? Well, in Seattle public schools the. Distance Learning. Plan, for fall has looked like about half a day as of the week of zoom classes, it's called Cintas learning where all the students are in class a virtual class with the teacher teaching live, and the youngest students actually have the most time in those kinds of classes after four hours a day and a little bit less time for older students. So it looks like class blocks as long as fifty minutes of subjects like reading and math with other electives woven in and even time for recess and lunch of course baked in. So that is one way of approaching distance learning, but it hasn't impressed a lot of parents. And a lot of parents were critical especially of how the remote learning was being administered in the spring. Two teachers were teaching the same subject doing completely different remote learning styles and situations, and there seemed to be no plan which was last spring. What are you hearing from teachers right now about what they're thinking will happen in September. Well what I. Keep hearing from teachers, they feel woefully unprepared to be delivering distance learning. There has been you know pretty much no training along the way except for numerous teachers I know who have of their own volition ponied up the cash to take classes in their spare time over the summer but the district has not been providing any training. There are some training days that are scheduled at the beginning of every school year and this. Year's no different but right now the union and district of negotiating how many additional training days there'll be. So they have a lot more tools in their toolbox for delivering this very, very different style of teaching than most teachers have gone to school for with so many parents being critical about how things went last spring with the zoom learning our parents pushing really four in school learning or is something that we're not hearing very much about. In Seattle itself, I think that the majority of parents have accepted that distance learning is what has to happen this fall just given what the transmission rate of covert is but there are lots of different ways to deliver distance-learning and a lot of parents have said that they would prefer is what is technical term a synchronous learning. So recorded lessons that families can watch together that students can watch on their own schedule maybe their kid not a morning person and starting the day at seven, fifty, five with everyone else in the class is just not a path for success or maybe the kid doesn't have a really long attention span for instance, in kindergarten right now, you have a fifty minute block. Of Math and anyone who's ever been around a five year old knows that holding their attention fifteen minutes on a subject that it's not their absolute favorite is a coup. So if you had recorded lessons even if they were fifty minutes long than you know you can have some in the morning and then some after lunch or an APP maybe some. Of the evening or parents can work them into their schedules as the parent has to go to work all day long and the child has to be in childcare. Then the parent can do some of these recorded lessons with their child when they get home from work I'm just a lot more flexibility. Okay. So there are a lot of parents trying to. figure out ways that they're going to make this work for their family..
That's Just The Way The Ball Bounces
"Bobby, how are you? Ever. Since I was a kid my grandma I've called each other a few times a week. Cross doing the crossword. So she used to call me every Thursday to remind me to serie chickens at Safeway. We're going on sale the next day. Or Two tell me when Walmart started selling Mentos for five cents cheaper than rose ours. I'm just as quick to call her with good news courtesy. She's always been my most enthusiastic cheerleader. She's eager to shower me with pride in praise for getting a good grade. You're finding a good discount on a pair of shoes. To call because I heard you made us tonight I, did make asparagus night 'cause. Really impressive. Lately, we don't have as much to talk about. It's the spring of two, thousand and twenty and in the midst of waiting out the coronavirus. Parents moved my grandma into their house. When the virus I broke out in nursing homes. In Seattle in hopes, it would lower her risk of exposure. And I'm finishing school remotely. So, our lives have gotten pretty quiet. These days when we call, we usually start by talking about the weather. Beautiful. Weather we've been. Lucky really. Man, and then again update on where she's out with their latest jigsaw puzzle. One. Smaller, and all the lights. Only entertaining thing I have to offer her now are updates about my quarantine inspired virtual dating experiences. So I, really leaning into it. Okay. What's going on with your own dates? We upgraded? We're not just doing folks. We're doing a facetime. For my top house bottom half is You've gotta be kidding. But inevitably, the conversation always turns back to the coronavirus. Everyone. You know everywhere, it just seems strange Oh. This world is. At a standstill, even a small portion isn't that crazy I mean everything's great. You know you know can go how long is because last I've never seen anything like this. I think we all through. And then without fail, the conversation ends with. Well. That's just the way. The boxers. This is my grandma's go saying whenever something bad happens. She. Says it all the time. When I was growing up, she said, if my team lost a soccer game or if I called her to get some sympathy when I was home sick from school. Oh you poor thing. She'd say. Then she take a long inhale initially released her breath, she'd say. Wow. That's just the way. The ball. Shelby shrugs when she says it. Even, on the phone, I know she's sharking the thing itself is kind of like one big shrug. I always pictured football when she said it. Basketball or tennis ball is. Reliable. They bounce from Palmdale pavement. But if you slam a football onto the ground. You never really know what direction it's going to bounce. It might land on its stitches in bounced back into. Your Shins. Or might just tumble down the street cartwheeling over itself. Changing directions goes. It's at the base of her reaction to most things especially anything negative. Whether losing a fourth grade soccer game or global pandemic. Just above. You can't help it. That's just the way things go. But. This phrase is kind of the antithesis to my response to the pandemic. I move through the day trying to focus on work, but ultimately falling down endless internet rabbit holes. Watching videos and New York City hospitals, reading articles looking at modeling. Charts. Grasp, for any form of control I can. Sewing facemasks, scrubbing grocery packages with bleach, outlining contingency plans for every possible combination of who might get sick and my family. I stay up at night often too anxious to sleep imagining the worst case scenarios in vivid and dramatic detail. So the idea of shrugging off seems kind of impossible. But every time we talk. My grandma keeps saying this phrase. Function. She updates me about her puzzle. She tells me how many hummingbirds she counted in the are that day. She asks about my phone dates.

Former Christian Music Singer John Steingard: I No Longer Believe in God
"It was the twentieth of May of this year. John Stein. Guard best known as the lead singer of the Christian band. Hawk. Nelson made a post on instagram. He said this is not a post I ever thought. I. Would. Right. But now I feel like I really need to. I've agonized over whether to say this publicly and if so, how to do it? But I now feel that it's less important how I do it and more important that I do it so here goes. After growing up in a Christian home and being pastor's kid playing and singing and a Christian band, and having the word Christian in front of most of the things in my life, I am now finding that I no longer believe in God. John. Stein. Guards post went viral and became part of a global conversation inside and outside of the contemporary. Christian. Music. Community. That I. say that fairly my friend. Yeah. Yeah. You came out they necessarily. I noticed you wording that carefully I like I didn't say eighth easiest. 'cause I don't know where you are. If somebody says, are you an atheist John? How do you respond to that? Right? Well, I mean at first I was like well, I don't. I don't know that I would call myself an atheist because I think at the at the beginning my understanding of the word atheist meant that someone who believed there was definitively God and I've learned since then you know correct me if this is not correct but. That my understanding now is that the word atheist. Who Lacks a belief in God? an and that is I guess a pool that I'm. At, the very least dipping my toe than. People. You. Know. We're all eager I mean. I'll admit to that first inclination to think, Oh, I. So want him to be in my camp, right? Sure. tribalist where like. Look now we've got somebody who can talk about the. The whole experience of the faith and Christian music. But he's now an atheist and I had that just sort of microseconds excitement before I paused and took some of my own advice and decided not to get hung up on the label. I'm more interested in your journey. Let's talk about hawk. Nelson a lot of people in my audience or just now being introduced to the band I. Sort of did some homework. You tell me how I do on this church, Canadian Christian Band Rock, and pop funk I understand that was sort of. Mitigated a little bit as you took over as lead singer, eight years ago is formed back in two thousand. Eight studio albums pretty impressive resume songs. including. Bring out was featured in a two thousand, five film called yours mine, and ours with Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo. The band I think had a cameo in that film. Right? You Guys Ron. How we actually got to be on set and in the movie voted favorite new artist, my CCA magazine in their reader's choice awards February two, thousand six. You've got some video time on vh one that same year you played, I love the names of these big Christian festivals like creation. Fast you know or when you guys did plenty of those winter jam host live concerts picked up a grammy nomination back in two thousand, eight, the original lead singer and Co founder Jason. Done left the band and twenty twelve replaced by. You John Stein? Garden. And I want to know about you, I, mean I was looking at your discography and you guys were like sold out all in pro Jesus Christian message had an L. type stuff, I? mean. About the band. Yeah. So I think we all grew up. In Christian and Christian environment in Christian culture in sort of towards the late nineties like right around the year two thousand. There was this where we're from in Ontario Canada. There was this. There was this whole vibrant community of like young musicians and people in bands, and so that was like a really normal part of our our culture and it was sort of very tied in with youth groups and churches and stuff like that And initially when we when we started taking the band separately seriously, I was the guitar player just for your audience for clarity. I was the guitar player before I was the singer. So when I became the singer in two, thousand twelve. Does not when I joined the band. I joined the band two, thousand four. but But yeah, early on very like pop punk, a sort of a music and. There was this thing going on in Christian culture at the time. where? Christians wanted sort of Christian versions of popular bands because there was this sort of like movement of like, don't listen to secular listen to Christian music. If you like blink one, eighty two, instead of listening to them, listen to Hawk Nelson like that kind of thing, and so I think early on in our career, we were a little bit more vaguely positive. and. We're just sort of a Christian alternative to bands like blink one, eighty, two or good Charlotte. Radio, we used to call him God or girlfriend song. If you guys did that you talk very guilty, definitely, very guilty of that because crossover I don't know that was a big term when you guys were playing. Christian broadcaster, the the Holy Grail was. Man of you could get this Christian Song on pop and rock radio like. Stream radio and it catches fire. You guys have those sorts of designs on the secular quote Unquote Secular, music? Industry. I mean honestly I think at the beginning, we are philosophy was very intentionally like We want to make music for anyone for for anyone anywhere like that was sort of our approach we. I. Don't think we ever thought like, oh. Let's trying go mainstream or let's try and go Christian like it was sort of like. We just want. We just wanted to play for. You know anyone who who cared. The record time certainly at some point to where the record companies like. Are. They trying to package you or so are initially, we were on this label called tooth and nail out of Seattle and and their their approach to that stuff is pretty hands off like. They were always known for being a a label that would sign bands that had Christians in it, but wasn't like overtly Christian that was sort of their their their their sweet spot and they. They were really like not pushing us to be one or the other

"And of course, remember to wear a mask. The covid nineteen pandemic may have done a number on the Konami, but one area seems to be immune Seattle's. Is Still on fire, and all of this time inside has given homebuyers some time to think about what they need. Now Daryl fairweather knows something about that. She's the Chief Economist Redfin Hi Daryl. Hi? Be here. So Seattle's housing market was one of the hottest in the country before the pandemic give me the skinny on how it looks now. Seattle housing market is just as hot as it was before it's almost like that blip where we took a v-shaped dip is through it, and now the housing market is back. It's pretty astonishing. I know some potential first time home buyers had hoped. This was going to be there time. The economic disaster would help them actually get into the market that hasn't panned out at all why haven't prices gone down as the economy has taken a hit here. This pandemic recession is really nothing like the two thousand recession in the two, thousand, eight recession it started in the housing market with foreclosures, and after that, a lot of safeguards are putting in place where people with really excellent credit could get mortgages for homes or people who had the cash to buy homes outright, and since then home values have gone up especially in Seattle. So people have a lot of equity in. Their homes, which gives them a lot of cushion to keep paying their mortgage or refinance their mortgage at Super Low rates that we have right now. So there really isn't a lot of pressure on the housing market. If anything it's resilient. So a lot of people are working from home right now is well, maybe they need a little bit more space. How has that changed? What people are looking for in a House Yes that is another unique thing about this pandemic recession is is changing the relationship people have their homes before it used to be that the openly out was most desirable layout in a home. That's where you have this like really big area for entertaining where the kitchen flows. Until the living room people don't want that anymore. They don't want to hear the noise of their partner cooking while. They're trying to do work and living room are having their kids on their devices in the living room when they're trying to do work from there from the same space. So people want separate spaces for each family members. So they can each work from home or home school or whatever is that they're doing having just spent four months in the House with my family. I. That makes complete sense. We've just been together to learn. I think everyone's feeling that I wonder if part of this is a little bit of zoom and the because people can see into your house now. So the space that you're creating around you is also your professional environment in some cases. Yeah. I think that's true. It's not just the clothes that you wear to work anymore people are living and your background, and that gives them a sense of who you are as a person absolutely absolutely and You know buying and selling a home is an extremely emotional experience and we're at a pretty vulnerable state right now as humans I wonder how that showing up. Are you seeing that show up in the way people are buying and selling their homes? There's a lot of competition for home by right now, more than half of redfin offers are facing competition and I think that feeds into the behaviors we're seeing where people are really urgent to get home and we're also seeing war sight. Unseen offer is nearly half of homebuyers report having made an offer on a home before even setting foot on it. So people are kind of racing each other to see who can go through that three tour passes put an offer and fastest. So I think speed of the market is just accelerating. That sounds pretty reminiscent of the last frenzy we were having around home-buying, but I'm guessing this time around it might be because people aren't totally comfortable having a lot of people coming in and out of their houses right now. Yes both sellers and buyers are embracing technology. They don't want to have to go view the home in person times they'll just have one viewing or sometimes even zero viewings and they'll do a lot of their research online. So it's religious changing the way people are buying homes. I just cannot even imagine having an entirely electronic experience when you're dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars in one place that just seems a Little Bananas Daryl. That's. That doesn't that. That just seems crazy to me people are doing. What about people who can't afford to buy homes in Seattle right now what's happening to renters? So people who can't afford to buy in the city center there looking outside of the city they're looking at the suburbs or small towns even moving across the country because while homeownership is quite unaffordable on places like Seattle, you can get a lot more bang for your buck if you look in a more rural part of Washington or even in the center of the country and our A. Lot of people doing that because it seems like from the things that I'm hearing, you say location location location means different things right now because we are expecting different things from our environments. So then we track how many of our users are looking outside of their own metropolitan area, and that number had a record high last quarter of twenty seven percent. I've read from users looking outside the Metro. So that's been trying to the pandemic and it's probably going to continue especially as more employers. Say that they're going to let employees work for home or work remotely permanently. Yeah so many people there are companies who are going completely remote. So your location doesn't even seem to be completely relevant right now unless you're interested in all of the conveniences of living in a city yeah I love those conveniences living in a city aren't accessible right now. So it's not top of mind for people. And do you expect that rents in the city? Will I don't know does do do rent prices have an impact on real estate prices at all. So the renter. That's what that's what determines whether or not. It's more affordable to ranch vs on it's looking more and more attractive right now to own. But that's GONNA put downward pressure on rents in the long term because landlords aren't gonNA have the negotiating power to increase rents year after year because people will just to own instead. So I think over time we will see rents stabilize possibly even fall in the city centre so housing prices are going up but the lower end of the economy is completely struggling right now what does this say about the state of our economy? Even going into this recession, we saw an increase in wealth inequality and this pandemic has really. Bifurcated economy even more there. Some people who've been able to keep their jobs and their stock portfolios have recovered even going up even more while some people have lost their jobs and are destructing to paying their rent or pay their mortgage. So it really is a huge separation between the haves and have-nots the homeowners and the people who can't even dream of forging their rent. I'm curious what you think the future of housing and real estate look. Like here in the Seattle area in this very unpredictable time. I. Think some of these changes are going to be here to stay I think employers are going to become more and more comfortable with employees working remotely the longer this pandemic goes on and we're GONNA see more people watching a home that has a Home Office looking outside the city because they don't have to commute into their jobs every day I think those changes will be long lasting.

"Hey, it's Patricia Murphy. This is Seattle now. Housing prices in the Seattle market are increasing even in the pandemic. Yep. Still takes a lot of money to get into a home around here. But what people want in their housing has changed in a minute Red Fin chief economist Daryl fairweather will explain what people are looking for, and why it may not be here in the city but first, let's get you caught. You probably already figured this out, but there's likely to be no in person school in the fall for Washington students governor, Inslee in a press conference yesterday said, it's just not safe for most kids to return to school buildings. It's not a mandate, but inslee says he strongly recommends remote learning statewide. Washington does have five low risk counties where they'll likely be a hybrid model for high school students and in-person learning for elementary students. Wednesday saw another large day of protests in Seattle. This time with people marching specifically call for defunding the Police Department activists had supported the city council's plan to defend police by fifty percent but the latest city council measure would bring a smaller cut closer to thirty or forty percent. A long line of protesters blocked rose to city hall with bicycles and cars proclaiming black lives matter city council held initial boats yesterday to reduce the police and cut the salaries of the police chief and commanders. And from the desk of things getting back to normal sort of if you still remember.

"I was not really missing the sports experience until you mentioned the garlic fresh and then I it really hit me that I missed going stadiums. Will you know it's funny because I am not a huge sports fan but if you put me in a stadium. I am that crazy person with that. Click thing going bananas just point to the team I have to support and one hundred percent behind it. So that is kind of where I want to land right now we are sporting without the fans how is that going? In America. Because The rest of the world is starting to ring back fans. For reasons we can talk about but are probably obvious to anyone listening. It's been really interesting. You know I cover all sports for the shows that I do round the Horne highly questionable until recently espn daily and we've kind of been watching every sport as it's returned again in the US as though it's an experiment like waiting to see does is this working is in certain cases are the bubbles working in cases like baseball which does not have a bubble is the absence of a bubble working it is not the way. And be working it's a little army. So it's been interesting because normally we watch sports totally sports completely focused on the XS and Os and football. The outcomes interesting things that are happening on the field. But right now we are spending justice much time worrying about things like infrastructure logistics, test return rates, things like that. Yeah, and the future is really really uncertain at this point. You know a weakened baseball. We have two teams with pretty significant outbreaks and on Friday. The commissioner said, he might shut down the season if the teams don't start doing a better job controlling the virus. So from your perspective. How seriously are these players taken this? I think it's really very but I think the problem. With Corona virus, the central issue is it. Ninety nine percent of the players just like an officer, a family or a group of friends take it seriously. But if one percent does it it affects everyone I think. To My I, that's been what's happening in certain sports including baseball because I can tell you this a lot of these players to take it seriously even though they didn't agree to a bubble, which was the bargained ultimately what they decided on doing with travel but. Unfortunately a because the disease is so contagious. It's really really risky regardless of how seriously they're taking it. and. Each team seems to be taking a different approach like you said, baseball doesn't want a bubble. The Seattle storm is living in a bubble in Florida who's making these decisions. How is this being negotiated? So it varies from sport to sport, but essentially, both sides the ownership in the leagues and the players themselves their unions have to come to these agreements. How are we going to do this? What you've seen so far in America's that the sports that have opted to do bubbles or quasi bubbles including the national women's Soccer League which concluded their tournament with zero positive tests after it began in Utah data sort of bubble MLS, which is underway in Orlando and then the WNBA NBA had had a lot of success low test rates if anything. MLS had some problems at first but. They figured it out and fortunately the sounders got knocked out the tournament but for the most part it's working and it is easy to point a finger and say, well or the NFL which is really gone baseball's route said, why didn't you do this? You're so careless but they're very different sports, structurally many more teams, many more human beings and in the. NFL's case there is a belief when a bubble or a group of bubbles was discussed that just wasn't actionable. Now, you can object to that and argue that while you're the NFL of billions of dollars and key figure something out same with baseball. But ultimately, both the Labor and capital side of things agreed that this was the way to go in both those sports. I saw that people think that hockey is going to be okay because so many of the teams play in Canada. Yes. So they're doing their postseason in Canada in two cities, Toronto, and Edmonton. which the Canadian government agreed to even though they don't want other kids they really low hockey. But they were also comfortable with the the bubble plan. It's similar to the NBA only they're doing it in two cities and people are pretty optimistic and so far the test rate support that. I imagine all of this has an actual impact on the game itself, and I wonder if that's ever possible to have nonverbal sports at this point because from what we've seen in baseball, it's just. It's not working out. So Great. This is the concern of the NFL because when their plan their non bubble plan was for its rigorous plan by the way, the system and the put in place for testing in distancing but it was also designed when the curve of cases in this country was flattening and it seemed plausible in experts have said if we are still in the same place, we were back in April or whenever it probably would work unfortunately does not happened and it it's less about in his customer said at the beginning about other countries versus the US in the end, it becomes less about the sport and it's sort of. Best laid plans in more about the context in which that sport is happening, which is to say, America. And we are still the beginning of this story. What are the questions you're asking right now what are you thinking about as an analyst and a journalist? Well primarily covering the NFL as I do. I'm just asking whether it can work. Because what we've seen in baseball has not been promising and the NFL is not only a contact sport. So it seems like transmission between teammates and teams opposing teams might even be more plausible in the NFL, but it's also sport with bigger numbers, right? So like I said, all it takes one you know. If the League progress in the same way that baseball has with this kind of rollercoaster effect of cancellations and postponements. The impact of that in football is likely to be much more significant because it's a shorter season, very few games in high stakes. Like, I'm trying to wrap my arms around the idea of a quarterback testing positive for game and. Because, I would completely change the tenor of the sport and as an analyst complete change the analyze it frankly. So these are all questions I'm asking, but unfortunately, there questions that won't have answers for some time. Any hopeful news, you feel good about the seahawks. See Hawks are all in this year as evidenced by their big trade for the safety Jamal Adams I mean the seahawks are really need the season. From a football perspective because of that trade Seattle fans definitely would like that I would say another optimistic for them is because of the lack of a traditional off-season I other analysts believe that teams with established quarterbacks, coaches, wide receivers Seattle are more likely to succeed because there's not as much turnover there's more familiarity so they didn't need the season in the same way that a team with a lot of new players to integrate or a coach would need it.

"The name of platinum record selling country trio decided. They changed their name to last month after fourteen years of calling themselves lady antebellum. The Bam, said the nationwide protests against racist police. Violence helped them realize the word antebellum has strong associations with Chattel Slavery, so they shortened their name. which was news big surprising news to Seattle's Lady A. This is a big deal. I even know what antebellum was. We. We don't think about it. That's that's down south so and my friends down South has. Really. Now the original lady, a and the band formerly known as lady Antebellum have been deadlocked over WHO GETS TO BE LADY A And as you'll hear a name, a letter even has big implications for this independent Seattle musician. Really, this is a blessing. And I believe that God has intervened. For reason to open is a people like lady antebellum. Who wants to pretend to be woke, but actually are not.

"I mean I think that's the biggest thing for me is. We're out here working, you know. In my restaurants up in, not because necessarily, I want to be up and we have to be open. We've done everything we can to stay safe and. Do, everything that we can to kind of keep it forward, but I don't have investors don't have. Generations of people that can help me out I. Don't have friends in high places. Doesn't exist and there's a lot of people that. I've seen coming up through this industry that get stuck at a spot and their. dishwashers forever have other. Of Us that are stuck meat packing plants that are signing over liability, so they don't get sued later on, but just forcing through people working I mean everybody that'd be the case that people working at Goya because they have processing plants to. You know so then at that time. If we're being affected by it, the most and nobody's helping us out and then they're going to. The people that we our food from. is also going to trash us. It's kind of. It's a full circle thing in, and then you can't get away from it so for people who are boycotting Goya and maybe going to order from you Eric Rivera. What are you seeing? People Buy Right now. They're buying everything. Thereby busy guy. Great you know everybody's buying so and right now we have three different kinds. They're buying a dobro, beans or buying. Tickets, the rest of our south, looking at our seafood program or meet program I mean like it's really interesting to me. Because it becomes the hype you know and. I know it's GonNa last forever. I know people are going to find different sources and spaces and places, and what's going to be the next thing, but. For Right now I'm cool with it. You know we'll get yours ascione. So says own is just something you should put in your cabinet at all times and just sprinkle on totally. Yeah, I think so. Tell me about your first memory of the Goya brand. It's my GRANDPA. Making he. They moved over here for me. He put a little stepping stool and I would help him cook. Lunch or dinner for my parents and a lot of it was the they have a can of olives. And I remember him having having him teach me how to open the little can of all us to put it in the rice. He was making or the can of capers or this other stuff, but it was all like Goya based and the little packets of sewn and. Being in a position where. Money wasn't there and having them go. We'll just don't use all of it. You know. Save it for later, so kind of taking one of the envelopes and putting just enough in there, but you know making sure we're like. We gotta save it for later. That kind of stuff so that's always been ingrained in my head, and now being a position where I am a chef and I can kind of go crazy with my own I over I. Overdo it overseas and stuff on purpose I. throw that stuff up like it's never going to end, and that's that's. Why people come in. They're like man.

"Still Alive Long Way to go before the vaccine could get the stamp of approval. Last week Goya's CEO. Robert Yunan Way. Out Rage when he spoke at the White House and praised president, trump were all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like president, trump was builder. And, that's what my grandfather did. He came to this country to build to grow to prosper. GOYA's products canned beans Adobo and says on a type of seasoning particular to Latino cuisine are popular in the Pantries of Latinos in the United States president trump. Not so much so now many Latinos are boycotting Goya's products. Eric Rivera is one of them. He's Puerto Rican and the chef and owner of Addo in Ballard he's also been experiencing a crush of orders of his sesana seasoning from all across the country. Hey, eric thanks for taking the time today. I appreciate it. I mean great. The reason we're talking today is because of Goya's CEO Robert Yunan Way and last week he praised president. Trump's leadership and the comments angered a lot of people in the Latino community. Tell me how you heard about this. I was prepping so at the restaurant, and then I just kind of like look down at my phone, and it was blowing up and I didn't know what was happening and I was like what did I do now? Say, oh. And so then I looked at it, and then I read into what was going on in a lot of people were tagging me, and then I went and watched the him talking to trump and I'm like oh man! That's not good, but what ended up happening? was they basically kind of denounced everybody, our entire culture, just to side with trump, and immediately there's backlash immediately. There's people looking at it and going like. Why is he saying that go is like our brand? Not There's and so that's kind of immediately. That's kind of how I found out about it. And as you were watching the words come out of you non ways mouth. What were you thinking? I would say it's worse than a slap in the face you know. because. It's something that I've grown up around since even before I realized what it? Mean, Goya, yeah, and so it's just it's been part of my culture and part of me growing up and so to see that happen. Is like very nonchalant? Tell me about your relationship to Goya products A thirty eight year old relationship. Probably the longest relationship I've had. You know it. It's something kind of interesting, because these are all flavors that I grew up with I grew up in Olympia Washington. My Dad was military, so I'm the first person in my family is born here stateside, so it's something that for us. That was the way for my parents. Show me. Puerto Rican cuisine you know without being in Puerto Rico a lot of the times when my grandparents moved over here to kind of raise US until here about seven years old. My parents both worked it. It was that, was it I mean that was the only key into being of Puerto Rican cuisine and culture, and so you know an entire culture for me to kind of trace. It back was based on food, and so that's the kind of thing it's always been around. There's obviously different products out there. There's different. Ingredients. There's different. Preparations all this other stuff, but go kind of is the mainstay product. President trump has said things in the past that have been offensive to the Latino community. His language has been difficult to accept to say the least and this really hit a nerve in the Latino community. Tell me how that looks and how that's shaping today. Yeah, it's not just it's not just this I mean there's been plenty of cases of him saying a lot of really incendiary racist, terrible things and following up with actions, and it's not just us. It's black people. It's indigenous people. It's all people of Color. It's so the administration so racist and so white forward that anybody else. That's not that. Without trying to do anything else is just bad, and so it's capturing it all and seeing it in a way that when they'd finally add in that, Goya thing the issue with that. Allows someone like myself. WHO's actually in the world of food to say that's enough along with these other things that we've been active on restaurant side. This is the one that I can speak to the most because it's an entire lifetime of seeing. You tweeted shortly after Goya's CEO made those comments in the Rose Garden that? You've been waiting for this moment? Your entire life. Is that what you're alluding to now? What did you mean by that? Yeah, I mean. There's a couple of different reasons I here in Seattle I'm the only restaurant in Seattle. That is doing. Puerto Rican food at all. There's one in Redmond. There's one in Lynnwood. That's three restaurants all of Washington. Right so I've been waiting for this for a long time I've been waiting for. People to embrace Latin. American culture. Puerto Rican flavors all these types of things for this entire time without having to constantly explain it or work ten times just as hard to kind of put it out there. There are a lot of brands that make questionable choices and twitter, and the Internet makes it possible to find out about that stuff. You know almost immediately. How do you decide when it's worth it to boycott something, and and when to to look over ideas that you disagree with I think it comes to a point when you kinda go. Okay, that's enough. That's too much a step to. Yes. This is definitely a step too far. We could go. They would have been fine. Nobody would have said anything if they wouldn't have had a little meeting with trump, and said what they said, but options for us to. We're in a different dynamic. We're in a different world now with people who are at home and they can spend a little bit more time online. Whereas you know maybe a few months ago, everybody's busy work and probably would have passed underneath everything, but I think you know it's. If, people can search through. Businesses and do their due diligence and make a decision of whether they WANNA support that I'm all for it I'm sure there's people that are going to want to look through my business. And maybe there's something that I say or do or promote or have as a dinner. That doesn't make them happy and they're not gonNA. Buy Me. That's just the way things go. You know I'm definitely not going to side with trump. I'll tell you that. And the incendiary racist language from the president isn't necessarily new, but I wonder. The Corona virus had an impact on this. You Know Latinos make up thirteen percent of the population here in Washington, state, but forty two percent of the corona virus cases here, the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on the Latino community has been very visible..

"The ones that I know that I see at every community event every time the community wants to have a conversation with the police. Every time there's something in the community going on, and the police are the same handful of officers, but it's not the officers that are out patrolling and militarized uniforms with militarize weapons out policing it ain't them they're. They're not in a community like that. They're just out to police. Enforce right, and then I and they say to protect the community or protecting serve will look community. Are they really protected? And what community on I really serve? That's the question. I have to ask so dumb. What's the hold up to that? Then? What is the barrier to the true community involvement that you're talking about? I think we need to have more officers on the force that are of color, number, one and number two people from the communities that they police I remember back when I was younger, the people that patrolled our our communities where people that look like us from the communities that we're in, and we'll get out and play basketball with us. We get out and and come to our football game or get up. You know what I mean. They were just in the community, and I think when we say what needs to happen I. Think we need to go ahead and have a panel of community members that are part of the decision making process all the way through all the way. Way Down to win. An injustice happens to somebody, even somebody not of color. An injustice happens to somebody. There's a community panel that get to sit down with the district. Attorney's office gets to sit down with the investigative agency and get to make decisions and have access to information to say whether this officers needs to be charged needs to be prosecuted. Whatever it is needs to be fired. You know there needs to be some power-sharing wants to power-sharing happens, and there's an accountability process this. You can't have law enforcement investigating law enforcement. There's a code of silence there. How do you break that kosher? You put a new level of accountability near that the community should have an share. The New York Times says we're in the middle of what might be the largest social movement in the history of the country That's going by the number of people who have shown up to protest these past weeks. It doesn't even seem like it's slowing down and and you've been doing this work for a longtime dumb, but I'm hearing you saying the same things that I have heard King County and Seattle talk about and skirt around the edges of for years. Does this seem different to you and if it really does? Why. This seems totally different to me. In a reason, why is because it's not just the people who are being treated unjustly and unfairly. It's not just black and brown faces. No more now you have every ethnicity, every age demographic every sexual orientation, every economic status people are coming out and forming an alliance together for the Common Cause of righteousness right, and so when you see a movement like this, that's never happened in the history of the United States before now the politicians, the people that. That run perpetuate. These systems have to answer to it and here's why they have to answer to it. Because the same people that vote for them and put them in office are now out protested. The same people that donate to their campaigns are now out protesting the same people that work in a lot of those systems are now out protested. They can't do anything else. Their backs against the wall. But what if this was just all a bunch of black and Brown faces out there? There believe me it would be a whole nother conversation. We would be having right now, but because the people that they have to answer to are out there. They don't have to answer the black and Brown people they don't have time. We don't even vote in local elections. Do you know what I mean and I'm saying that being very transparent, black and Brown people are so disenfranchised in disengaged from government, because government has stabbed us in the back and treated us, so Fowley, and unfairly. Unfairly that we don't even engage in their in their process anymore like we should. All the years that we fought to vote and all that we don't engage it, but now we're starting to get more involved in government just because of this movement because we're seeing that we can make a difference. Due to the fact that everybody has came alongside and said we support the Movement of righteousness for black people period, and those people.

Hamid is here. He's the Co host of Kyw's are going to be okay series. Highs Zaki. Chris Anton here. He's the food writer at Seattle Times Hi Todd. Hi, Trish. We gotta wear masks in public spaces now in Washington State Tanya. How're you doing with your mask? Compliance I'm doing well. Apparently, I am in the minority as we speak I'm going out my window now and there is no one wearing masks was like dad restaurants. It was like that when I run like that everywhere. Yeah, this is this is. This is not good. A lot of people without masks on. I feel like we're learning this new thing about masks, and we're not really good at it at this point. No, you know the thing that I think about is. Is this really the hill? You WanNa die on like really the mask thing. That's what you're gonNA stake everything on like I am not going to wear my mask. I just don't know like this the simplest thing possible and It seems that it's too much for certain people I, don't I? Don't understand it man, I just don't well, and there's really good reason right to wear these masks because our corona virus cases are sneaking up a little bit especially. Oh my Gosh! We're watching LII in Yakima County. Gosh you know, and and those guys apparently were not great about wearing masks. You know they had the. They had the long term care facilities, which made it difficult, the fruit, picking and packing, which was also a pretty high risk situation, but the third piece of that is that people weren't wearing masks. The governor had to go out there and be like. Hey Let's. Let's do this, guys. You know I don't think people remember this, but even before the pandemic. If you go to Asia Vietnam an l career, even Japan Hong Kong Taipei you see people wearing masks, and that's even before the latest coronavirus. It's just a part of daily life. Now because they went through the bird flu, they went to a couple of these pandemics, and they just used to it as part of the daily life, and I think we will get to a point where when this is over with knock on wood. We will wear masks like in stores even. I remember like there was a comedian who made fun of old ladies in Chinatown wearing masks when there's no pandemic in the United States, but guess what we're going to beat at Old Lady now. I have confidence that this is the new reality. Well, even the the sheriff in Lewis County this week. Did you see that video you of? Years the sheriffs standing in a crowd of people, nobody's masks that I can tell telling them not to be sheep. And and Everybody's cheering like this is a great thing that we should defy the science. The governor and leader He tried to backpedal that a little bit by saying he wasn't really saying that people shouldn't wear masks. When he was really saying was that people should feel free to disagree with the governor, and of course he's masked the second time so I'm curious about what happened in between that statement and that interview. He did later on the news. You know it's we are such an individualistic society, and because of that the. The other side of that is that when we're not thinking about the collective, these are the things that happened. These are the consequences I really hope that we can think as a team and just think as ourselves those individual players yeah, yeah well, and now we're in phase two in King County, so we are allowing ourselves more movement. We can go into a restaurant. You know the the mask in the restaurant. Thing is interesting. Right because the servers are masked up, but I have been out on the waterfront. Just hanging out on my paddle board and there's a lot of waterfront restaurants you know and I have not seen a whole lot of masks on the patrons, which kind of makes sense right because you got to eat, but again we're in phase. Two and masks feel critical to phase two. And I feel really bad for all the servers because the owners is going to be on them. Yeah to put the pressure on dynasty. Tae As you walk into the room, please put your mass on Yeah Hey. Now that you're standing here waiting for your table, please put your mask on. And some of these diners are not going to be happy that they're being towed. Because you see it happening already, we've talked to a couple of restaurant owners. We talked to a restaurant under who. Isn't going back to in person dining, because it's or in in restaurant dining because it's too much, they're going to continue with takeout. You hearing restaurants just continuing with the takeout rather than trying to deal with the situation of having customers in the restaurant. Oh. Definitely I mean when King County went to face to. It's like they threw a party at no one showed up. I mean restaurants did not open a love him did not open doing face to, and they will not open doing face to yeah, because the numbers don't pencil out, I mean if you have a thirty seat restaurant and you can only be at fifty. Fifty percent capacity that's only fifteen seats and keep in mind that, even though they said, it's fifty percent capacity. You're actually under because I mean if you go if we go. We're a party of three and what's going to happen? We're going to sit at a table for four right one empty seats, so it does not make sense to open in this stage or Maybe unfazed three, even for a lot of people. The restaurants too small rural states, extremely expensive and Seattle Bellevue you can't afford one hundred seat restaurants, and that's the problem right, and you can't have more than five people in your party right so the maximum amount of people could even put at a table is five. Yeah now, What's interesting I think you're going to see happening in. Seattle King County like Olympia Tacoma ten more even dare allowing restaurants use the sidewalks the alleys. The right of way street even put tables out. That way you can increase your capacity, and actually those would be the prime real estate that safe to dine outside then to dine inside right. There's a lot of push in Seattle to make happen, but that's easier said than done because we're so densely populated as we'll look like Paris. Exactly exactly. Can we all wear berets now? Masks up first before we start with the berets man. step-by-step step-by-step Perez all right, so we can go to restaurants again and I hear baseball's coming back starting July twenty third or twenty fourth issue, Major League Baseball Games are going to resume in Empty Stadiums Thanh. Do you have anything to say about this? I. Don't get any sense of excitement about the mariners season starting and I love how! It's as sixty game season, and that's too short I think that's true law. We're going to get a spike right I mean we're GONNA get. We're getting spice in Arizona Florida where a lot of these games or play. Yeah, I'm not. That we will last sixty game season. Don't you think it's going to be canceled? Because the coronavirus spike I do? There's no way. Sixty Games in the next three or four months with the spike going up, no way well. And how are they going to be with no fans in the stadium? Well for the Mariners? Seki! Life as usual men. Anyway, so if you Washington TV like wait. Is this from two thousand fifteen, or is this happening right now? I can't tell the difference. My Wife's going to kill me for this. How embarrassing is this going to be?
