Wet Notes - 4-9-21
"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

What is The US Senate?
"Bet you at least heard of the us senate after all. It's pretty important but do you know what it is or how does it even work. Well as senate is of the. Us congress it has been around since seventeen eighty nine and has exactly one hundred members to members for each one of the fifty states. The us the people who work in the senate or call us senators not to be confused with state senators. Who will talk about in a moment. That's nice all you may be thinking. But what does the senate it's senators do. And in that question. My friends is where it gets interesting the. Us senate is all about making important decisions not little decisions like what sweater to where or how much ice cream to eat. Even though those can be really good to think about the senate can make decisions on passing laws voting in supreme court justices and even things like treaties involving other countries for the passing of laws and other matters that need to be voted on. The senate need sixty votes in order for something to pass. However when approving us supreme court justices and presidential nominees a simple majority of fifty one votes is enough to pass the roped when passing laws. The us senate actually needs to work together with the second part of the us congress. The us house of representatives both the us senate in the us house of representatives can come up with proposed laws also known as bills to be voted upon depending on which side of the us congress. A bill starts in the other side will then have the final vote on whether it becomes an actual law the us senate is considered the higher chamber and the house of representatives is the lower chamber one of the reasons this is so is because the senate has a little bit more freedom having unlimited debate time and is able to work with other countries.
"senator" Discussed on In The Thick
"Opportunity for all of us as a community Right and last wednesday the first fatal minneapolis police shooting. Since george floyd took the life of twenty three year old allow eat whose family came to the us in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven from somalia and hours after officers shot and killed. He'd they aggressively rated each family home in the suburbs. Not telling his family of his death until the police left the home. Hundreds came out this past weekend in minneapolis to protest police shooting and treatment of each family. So we're really witnessing the outcome of four years of trump plus some four hundred and two years of white supremacy right. These acts of violence were really barely mentioned in the mainstream media like white violence and violence against people of color is so normalized that it's basically ignored. Oh yeah it's a white guy that blew shut up you know. I think the headline was like quiet. Life he bombed everything up in the new york times. It was like shut the fuck up so it feels like people are like. Hey it's twenty twenty one and we don't want to talk about white supremacy anymore especially not in the media bright so no sheet. Nope in the how scene they had us to end. Is there a sense that people are desensitized to white supremacist. Violence and domestic terrorism at this point. And let's start with you terrell. Well i don't think there is a desensitization because the way that violence coverage has been america's predicated on black people have a pathology problem and with white people being bad apples. So that is the genesis of american journalism which Herbie say is nothing more than the white man's diary right so it goes beyond people's individual thoughts because ultimately people will adjust to whatever gift right you know we are not the pew research center that scales okay for this number of people. This is what they want to hear. We give them what we think that they want to hear. The mainstream media management me think that they want to see violence conducted by people of color in framing violence. White people as issues of bad apple would not race races. american history. archaeology. And pathology so out to say no this. It's not so much desensitization from a media standpoint. It's about what we feed people in the and people adjusting two in national executives refuse to change the menu. Yeah i mean that's that is what it looks like when you have a white male editor. Who's like yeah. we don't have to cover. That big explosion in nashville was just the white guy who started as a nice guy. And then he didn't rene take us out. I think you can't say that people are desensitized. Because they were never sensitized to it to begin word I always got a little bit of that. You know it's true. If that had been a muslim who had blown up a city block on christmas day we'd be hearing about it seriously. That'd be writing songs. Like holiday songs already terrorizing people in mosque. We know how this goes. We've seen it before you know instead. It's the white one kind of just shrugs and goes well. No identity snaps you know. And that's it. We know that the biggest terrorist in this country in spicer penicillin trials but nation. Just one except betsy you constantly get black and brown saying you know. This is a problem and they go. Yeh we know but don't worry about it. it's fine yeah it shuts it's washed away and that it will happen again and that will be the isolated incident you know. Let a black brown muslim person do one thing and that's all grow try. It's just it's one white guy who was you know having a bad day. Yeah he's he's hanging out with other whites he's the lone wolf a nation that soap built on violence against black and brown bodies. It's never going to be sensitized. Problems with that and what. They do what they've always done. They bury it as quickly as possible. Yeah well we don't neither do wasn't very there. That's why we love you and that's why the both of you are. It all stars renee.

It's a defense of conservatism for women who find that many times and you know they've become really concerned. I know you hear it on your your show from callers they feel like it they open their mouth in the workplace thing they get fired. If they, speak. Up. At. A PTA meeting, they might get shut down or their children might get shunned and they don't want to do anything to adversely impact their family, and of course, we know that the left is going to come after Judge Barrett they're already doing it. They're questioning her adopting two children from. Haiti. they're ridiculing curse or taking her children to church. Every Sunday is if that is something outside the norm and I guess from their actions, you would think that they think. That you have to be an atheist or a secularist to be able to hold a seat on the federal. Bench. You know it's so disturbing because we know that no matter who was nominated, they're going to attack them but to attack her for her personal life and her faith is something that it strikes me if people. Across this country whether they are a person of faith or not do not respond to this and say, as we did after cabinet. Oh, by the way If folks do not respond and say that is off limits and we will punish you at the ballot box for that so that you don't do that again that's the only way to fix this behavior because it's crass and it's awful. It's truly awful. Well you're. Right, it is awful but look what they're already doing to her but this is what's left does too conservative women. They ended it is women more often it's I think conservative women's threaten Democrats. You know I, think they do too and so many times. As I have worked with women around the country they would save Marcia flying does the media denigrate and ridicule and mock us but then you turn around and who are they Gora firing and putting on magazine covers and writing feature stories on websites about it's all the liberal women but they mock us because we're pro-life pro-family, pro religion, pro business, pro military, and a- It just they shut a conservative voice down and I do think you're exactly right. The left is very fearful of conservative women but our country needs. Conservative. Female voices now, more than ever because we know that when they do stand up and speak out, there are more people in this silent majority that is out here who agreed with them. Then agree with the left who is getting in your face and trying to shout you down Senator Marsha Blackburn is our guest. The book is the mind of a conservative woman seeking the best for family and country Senator Lindsey Graham announcing over the weekend that he expects the process to begin formally and publicly October twelfth you think it's realistic that we have a vote before election. Day. Oh absolutely I do for those of us on Senate. Judiciary Committee. We started immediately working on this and nomination we didn't wait to say okay. Exactly what day what time things of that nature we went right to work and we are going to hold our hearings we are going to move judge Barrett through this process, there will be four days of hearings. There is a day for opening statements day for outside groups one day with thirty minute questioning rounds, and the second day was twenty minute questioning rounds, and then we move the nominee to the floor Move them out of committee has that been moved onto the floor for a floor vote. And you expect that to happen that that timeline puts this this vote within just a few days of the election just before the war I think you're going to it around the twenty fifth twenty six somewhere in there I certainly hoped certainly hope. So Senator Marsha, Blackburn of the Great State of Tennessee the book is the mind of a conservative woman seeking the best for family and country come back and visit us. Lot. Thank you so much..

The conviction rate by offering plea deals to defendants accused the serious crimes when cases went to trial. According to people that have followed her career underperformed compared to other prosecutors. She's attempted to inflate or the offices conviction rate to let murderers off the hook.

There is there's no rules anymore in politics. The mob in the media is so corrupt. There so they are willing to lie to lie in any way they can. How.

"And to people of Color look how it's generation after generation crushing opportunity. So we're saying young people go get a Go to college. If you have have to borrow money it's okay. It'll pay off. WHOA so I don't WanNa tell him not to go to college? College opens a million doors. How I think of this is it means? We can't just do this blindly so let me take two things that I said I'm GONNA do differently. I've got a plan for student. Loan debt forgiveness but of carefully worked it so we're forgiving debt for about ninety five percent of students and the reason for that is. I found the place ace where we can do it. That will help. Close the black white wealth gap. If you're not careful in how you do this. You actually expand the black white wealth else gap because there are some people out at the far edge who are well to do doctors. For example have a whole lot of student debt could afford to pay it back and More likely white and they drive it up in the drive up the cost of the program so for me it was important to look at the race data in making making a decision on where to draw these lines. So I get to sign that into law. We will close the black white wealth gap for or people who borrow money to go to school by more than twenty points. This is historic but that doesn't get to the root of the problem. So here's here's the rest of what I wanted. I WANNA make it possible for everybody to go to college without having to borrow money. So I've got tuition wishing free college at technical school to Your College for Your College at all of our state universities. That's great I'm expanding. The Pell grants grants so they would apply families with a little higher income and also provide a little more money but to me. That's not enough. I want to invest in the next generation of black leaders. I want to invest in the next generation of black teachers. So part of my education plan is all the things I described. Plus plus a fifty billion dollar investment into historically black colleges and universities so you could go tuition-free three to an historically black college or university whether it's public or private and they would have a special fund just for them and for those universities universities to do what they need to do whether it's invest more in their buildings hire more teachers. They may want more counselors more support staff new dorms but the point is make that investment. And it's partly for historic reasons. You know over a hundred years ago. We invested public dollars in all the state universities then turned around and mostly said to black people. You not welcome here the HPC's as you know were largely built through charity through the black churches people who pitched it a few extra the box and God bless the HPC's but they've been doing the most with the least for the longest time so so partly. I see this historically as saying let's level the playing field from all that we were doing wrong for so long but I also so think that is the investment in the future. This is about how everybody everybody gets shot at an education. How black women and whether they grow up in well to do families or they grow up in really poor families got a chance to get out there to get an education not take on debt and do with their lives? What ever it is they WANNA do one last question that I ask all of the guests? What advice you have even though being a white woman for the Brown girls and we have knob round girls listening out there that say I want to be like her? I want to be a teacher from Oklahoma who's able to become a US senator who's now running for president. What advice you have for those people were saying? I know I can and want to do so much more. Persist persist it is. It's they're always plenty of guys. He'll we'll tell you to sit down. He'll tell you to be quiet. Don't tell you why that's not a good idea. Tell you why that's too hard. We'll tell you why not to fight for that and they mean it only in your your own best interests dear but just quit you get plenty of advice like that. Don't listen to get out there and persist in the the thing is it doesn't mean you have to persist in the same thing. I knew what I wanted to do. From the time I was in second grade I wanted to be a public schoolteacher and by the time I graduated from college. My family didn't have the money for college application much less than me off to four years of university so I have a story that has logged bumps twists and turns and got married at Nineteen. I had scholarship college but got married at Nineteen and dropped out. Thought I'd given up on this. I found a commuter college that cost fifty dollars a semester finished my diploma and became a special education teacher. That was my dream job job but by the end of the first year I was visibly pregnant. The principal did what principals did in those days. He wished me luck and hired. I heard someone else for the job so there I am at home. I got a baby. I can't get a job. I can't get back into teaching at that point so I thought well I will. I will go to law. School found a public law. School cost me four hundred and fifty dollars a semester baby on hip when off three years of law school graduated visibly pregnant. took the bar. Pass the bar. You'll love his part practice law for about forty five minutes. It turned out just one for me but I didn't give up. I went into teaching law. My First Love was was teaching so I traded the little kids that I'd had in special Ed for big kids in law school and just just kept building it. I feel feel so blessed in my life so grateful for the opportunities that or in front of me a college that cost fifty dollars a chance to do something but most of all it was whenever I hit hit a wall I just feel around and figure there's a door here somewhere.

"Senators and flake. We invited you to this event about a month ago. Thank you so much for precipitating, a constitutional crisis to justify our conversation this morning for precipitating and of winning it. And we are here to discuss gravely serious questions and that is the future of the Senate as an institution, and that is the future of the supreme court as an institution and how as you so eloquently said, Senator flake to prevent the country from tearing itself apart at a time when the legitimacy of both of those institutions is under siege, I'm required though by my editor, Jeff, Goldberg Senator just ask them easy question just to start us off. So this is from Goldberg. The question is, what is the state of play today? And what would it take for the FBI investigation to reveal to get you to consider voting against up. Chris. No, no. It almost works. State of play today is the investigations ongoing. The interviewed, I four that we're named and have branched off from there my understanding and are interviewing additional individuals and as it should be, and I hope that they follow leads that come from those first interviews, the what the agreement that we struck, the compromise that we struck that we'd have something that was limited by time as Chris outlined it in the speech. Before we, we went outside to one week and then we would limit the scope, the scope being limited to to current credible allegations. We didn't want to throw something open for allegations to come out like the Rhode Island boat thing that was out and then retracted or or some of the more outlandish ones out there. And we checked with DOJ. They assured us that this was in within what the timeframe that they can do it. We both hope and have been pushing the White House to to make sure it's Folsom investigation, and it's not unduly limited, and I hope they're doing it to find fact. We have not seen any of the reporting yet. We were told that might come back or in real time. And we might have some decisions to make in terms of where they go. My hope is that they as a interview these individuals than immediately follow up on other leads at they might they might have. So we don't know exactly where it is in terms of what it will take. I. I just hope that we find fact, and I have an open mind just like I had in the hearings and we'll see what they come back with. Don't want to prejudge it. Thank you for that. Chris. Some Democrats have taken the position that regardless of what emerges from the investigation, the nominees temperamental conduct in the hearings is disqualifying could anything from the investigation make you favor of capital. What I think is important. Jeffrey about the moment we have here is that as we ground towards the end of Friday's committee deliberations they got sharper and hotter and more partisan and more personal to the point where I think Senator flake correctly perceived that the nine hour hearing the day before which had presented to compelling forceful testimonies to completely opposite sets of facts and conclusions was really having an impact in a lasting way on the credibility of the institution of the Senate. And if the nomination was forced forward with no more further investigation would have a lasting impact on the credibility of the court. You asked a direct question. I'll give you a direct answer. I had announced a conclusion in my view about judge Cavanaugh based on his jurisprudence before we got to this point and and that's. Is not an opinion that is shared by many Republican colleagues, and I understand that.
