"Mayor of calgary for more than a decade now l. o. Manchego lose thanks so much for having me on. You're very welcome and we're gonna talk politics and your legacy however humble you wanna be about it today but first because we start every interview with this now. How are you guys doing out there. You know We're doing okay. Kovic is bad. i hear now. Berta of the numbers are very grim. But at the same time people are getting their vaccinations. They're certainly not just a white at the end of the tunnel but The tunnel is flooding with light. The only challenge now is to keep up our discipline You don't want to finish poorly. You don't wanna dance before you hit the end zone or any other number of terrible cliches so we really wanna make sure people are getting their vaccines up. All the good behaviors wearing masks keeping your distance staying home when you can. The good news is as we get more and more people vaccinated. Things will start to get better and i'm hopeful that business and everything else will be able to come back but it's not great at the moment. What's it been like Guiding a city through something like this. It's obviously Something you could never have predicted you would be leading a municipal government through and and it must be a all sorts of challenging but also all sorts of rewarding. Maybe you guys have stepped up. Well you know it's interesting. Because in the long history of calgary thirty six years we have declared a state of local emergency. Exactly three times and lucky me. I got to the mayor for all three of them. So if you'd asked me back in twenty ten you know what i was expecting. I probably wouldn't have said one disaster after another. This one is different of course because it's so much longer and
Fresh update on "six year" discussed on Lewis and Logan
"You wonder he probably would have started this year anyway. Whether he played or not last year, But who knows if Tyrod Taylor had a good year? Maybe Anthony Linds, Still the coach of the Chargers, Maybe. It's just I mean, it's just funny how you know things happened. Domino effect. Yep. So tie Rod will probably be the starting quarterback in Houston. And Anthony Lynn End up somewhere else. I believe so. I think he's on somebody staff. He is think he got hired. I can't remember where he's the O. C. Well, I'll have the look. He's the offensive coordinator somewhere. Mm hmm. Yep. I liked him. I didn't think is a good coach. The great He's a great dude. I think it's a hell of a coach to liked watching him on hard knocks guy Thought his. Yeah. He really showed it. Personality Detroit Lions O C. Oh, Okay? Interesting, so he's got Jared Goff. And that, Yeah. You have any faith in them this year, Rick Not really. No, I think they're in a bit of a rebuild. Well, well, hell. Interrogation later. They're always in a rebuild, but when you look at they traded Stafford for golf, I think they lose right there. That position cough. Is that great? Not as good. A Stafford didn't go take them Tol. He did he did. I think he's gonna have a chip on the shoulder and I think he might play pretty well. This year they draft drafted that offensive lineman in the first round. Thank God. I think Godson, a solid quarterback, but Stafford's better. I agree. And so I think they lose their and Stafford was all they had. They're rebuilding their coaching GM, I believe have seven year contracts. Seven years guaranteed so that guy can afford to take his time. Dan Campbell He can take his time and did, he said a seven year deal. I believe it was seven years. I miss that. Yeah, I was scratching my head like, why would you that that was never coached before at that level that if that's true, that would be the longest contract. I believe for any NFL coach. In the history of the league. Let me take a look. What was Shanahan six. Six year deal and get Campbell never been a head coach. You played in the in the league. A six year deal. Sorry sister to do, But even still, that's a long time for a guy. There's never been a head coach. Well, look what? Uh, look with the Met Rule got that role in Carolina. God, I think a six year got and got bank. I mean, he'd never been hit. He did a good job of Baylor. And had been an assistant coach in the league was well thought of, but Mean anymore. What we've seen is the league is is willing to step out. I mean, you only have to be a head coach one time and even if you suck You know if you got six years and whatever 50 million, I think that was rule had six years and like Keeping find there, but I think it was fifties plus million dollars. I mean, You want to do good. You're gonna put the effort into it. You hope you can win all that. What you're set for life. With one contract. Yes, Campbell was an interim head coach. 12 games with the Dolphins, but he's never even been a coordinator. Yes. So that's why you're going out on the limb. Somebody loved this guy. And then the same guys that have never been a coordinator can't become good head coaches because the guys I think that they're there. That have their ego in check. They know what they don't know. S so you, you bring people in that can supplement. The foundation of what you believe and think like, you may may know, Maurin terms of this particular part of this part. But you get to deal with the culture of the team you get to deal with changing and in the lion's case, I mean, that's gonna be a monumental task because there I mean, nobody. There is what is used to winning Nobody. The owner. I mean, people in Detroit. They're not there. I used to it. Do you remember his introductory press conference? We played a show? Yes. We're gonna kick you in the teeth. And when we get knocked down, we're gonna bite off a kneecap. I gotta tell you, I didn't hate it. I don't know how over a long term. Bases that will play in the locker room. But I didn't hate it. No, and it comes across a little bit like a meathead. Which is, you know they're kind of coming off that cave man Meathead mentality with Matt Patricia. So I think I would be a little careful, but they felt like they really needed to change the culture. They feel like the players will really relate to him and really like him. They did not relate to Patricia. It did not like playing for him. Didn't Patricia have, like some sort of controversy before he went there like that's a rape charge at a spring break writers when he was a kid when he was in college? Mm. That was his first time head coaching. Right? Yeah. A lot of texture, saying Gruden as a 10 year deal. Forgot about that. 10 years $100 million guaranteed. Yeah. So far. Hadn't been that good. No for John Group know that if there there are people out there that are not happy with where the Raiders are who The Raiders have drafted sort of rebuilding that franchise. But as you said, he's got what seven more years or six Let's see. Who has been there with three. I.

Wet Notes 5-6-2021
"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

Antonio Brown Re-Signing With Buccaneers on One-Year Deal
"Antonio brown is good. The case could be made over a six year period before he left pittsburgh he was the best receiver. Sense jerry. rice and the thing about receivers are randy. Moss might have this amazing year or two and his talent was you know. Maybe the best avenue randy moss. Another guy might have a year or two but these receivers tend to come and go fast. Now they stick around they might be like. Julio jones is he won the top three receivers. now he's not today but he certainly had times. Wise brown was very consistent very consistent and in just eight games. He had forty five catches as the number three option and what really stood out is his yards after catch or the best on the team so this is not a guy going out of bounds. This is a guy taken the ball and head up the field. I agree very productive. And if you think about it then that's awesome great. Why well obviously there's the author field questions but if you look at the time before the off the field were the questions. This was as productive receivers. We've seen since jerry rice and that's saying something that means maybe the second most productive six year period ever ever. Now he's hitting the wall when it comes to his age Four receivers typically again jerry. Rice was the exception to that even if he drops off a little bit a little bit. 'cause age antonio brown i believe will be at least as good if not better this year. Well how could he drop off and be better. The other circumstances remember he joined the team midseason right as much as he is a pro's pro in a way that in browns able to get acclimated and get integrated. He was paying much better coming into the playoffs now. He did get hurt but to me. His last three or four games were better than his first three or four which is a trend line. I think they continues with a more robust offseason into having the whole time with the team. So net net. I think browns more of a factor

He's obviously a really complex figure within the world of music and within hip hop as well in. It's always funny in situations like this for me. Because i'm relatively young. In comparison to most of the people who i think spoke out most about him. When i was really first coming out i was like five or six years old and even then even still you know. I have such vivid memories of those songs kind of raining. Everywhere i went and as i got older and as i got into teenagers adolescents. College years looking at someone like the mets are looking at his legacy has been so interesting for me. Particularly as some of his interested in the ways in which celebrity functions in our culture in our society. And i think is for all the amazing music made for all the amazing movie and television appearances that he's done and for just what a positive cultural figure he was overall. He's such a good example of the ways in which i think. Our celebrity culture can fail people despite their

"six year" Discussed on How Do We Fix It?
"And i know you guys know. There's there's scholarships based on academics. Their scholarships based on athleticism scholarships based on talent need. But nobody really focuses on work ethic and specifically looks for people who are willing to retool retrain and essentially relocate. Oh have we become fat and unhappy where we're we're lazy and were not willing to work as hard as we used to is. Is that actually a problem. Personally i think so. But i hate to lead with that only because a lecture is not gonna fix anything and the simple answer to your question is yeah yeah i think we have to think twice about what it is. Were most impressed with in the wide world of work. And if we're not blown away in twenty fifteen by the fact that the lights still come on when we flip the switch or the crap goes away when we flushed the toilet if if those things don't still strike us as miraculously then i think that's kind of where the problem starts micro and you know jim so much of our podcast has been about a sense of wonder for the things that do work. We did a recent episode on the grid with gretchen. Balki as micro says we all ought to still be amazed when the lights come on but of course we take it for granted until something comes along like a giant ice storm in texas that knocks the grid out and makes people really appreciate our power grid and how it still needs to be improved. Another show that we did that. I really enjoyed because it inspired. That sense of wonder was a recent episode with space writer. Eric berger about his new book about spacex and the early days at how elon. Musk has revolutionized the business of spaceflight. Yeah that was one of our favourite recent episodes and really did remind me of of how things have changed in space. But let's visit next on a different form of scientific topic with a niece ramirez. Who's the author of a terrific book on discovery called the alchemy of us. She's passionate about since technology engineering and math education stem. She's also great president. Follow on social media. If you want a little uplift somebody who's talking about something bigger than just the scandal of the day and this little expert is from episode. Two fifty five. We've done a couple of podcasts. On this issue of stem versus more of a liberal arts education. I'm a big advocate for seeing those things. Go together what's your take. My take is that we need both. And i think that one of those feels needs to stop and and extend their hand out to the other field if you go over to stem and you mentioned history. They're not interested because they like to do things certain way. And if you go over to history and say hey. We need to talk more about science. They're not interested because well they don't wanna they don't wanna seem. Secondary to stem. stem is kind of got. Its moment right now. I try and highlight both is equally as possible so that we can see how we need. Each other science happens but it happens in context and if we keep isolating science people will look at things and and not considered that. There's a response to whatever they work on and history without any sciences is is not as rich as it could be another point. That anissa made in that interview. Is that most. Inventions are not made by only one or two people but are possible because of the work of many of teams of people. That's also something we talked about with matt ridley who discussed how innovation works among the ideas we celebrate on..
"six year" Discussed on How Do We Fix It?
"Since our show started six years ago many more people have been taking to the streets on various issues. This includes the january sixth riot at the capital plus both peaceful and violent protests against the police and four black lives matter with so much. That's happened in the four years framed. By the trump administration. It's sometimes possible to forget. How explosive the metoo movement was right at the dawn of that period. You know we had the exposure of the crimes of harvey weinstein bill cosby later. We had the rearrest and apparent suicide of jeffrey epstein and the whole issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. That had been certainly known and talked about it. But still not really grappled with the way it needed to base that's a classic example of something that we look at it and say okay. We know there's a problem. What's the solution. Yeah in two thousand eighteen. We spoke with clare kane miller who writes about gender families and the future of work for the upshot at the new york times clare says nearly half of american women in the workforce say they've experienced at least one form of sexual harassment during their careers. It's especially happens when you start naming the behaviors if you ask women if they've experienced harassment about a quarter say us and then if you say have you experienced things and then you name specific behaviors that qualify as harassment that shared doubles to half of women. I mean this is the range of things from crude jokes that make for an uncomfortable workplace all the way to you know quid pro quo for sexual favors. Some of the things we've been hearing about with harvey weinstein and others so when we talk about sexual harassment in the workplace. Everyone has the same answer. We need more training. But some of the work that you've done you've looked into a wide range of investigations of this and said it's not so simple. The training that companies do is pretty bad. I think a lot of experience with it. It's either sitting in a lecture where people aren't really paying attention or click into a powerpoint to check a box that you did this for hr purposes. And you're not really paying attention. You're just clicking through. And the reason companies do this is because the legal requirement is not that they prevent harassment. The legal requirement is that they have anti harassment regulation. What are some examples of sexual harassment training workshops that don't work specifically the ones which are the most common either a lecture often. They talk about harassers and victims and one of the reasons they backfire is. Nobody really wants to consider themselves a harasser or a victor so when they speak in that language people either tune it out or makes very uncomfortable and so they go and make jokes afterwards. That's not very effective and another thing. Researchers have found is that by describing again this legal setup where a man is a perpetrator and a woman. Is this powerless victim. That it actually reinforces the stereotypical gender roles so employees have more entrenched views about these stereotypes of men being in control and women being powerless than they did before they enter the training which is obviously not helpful in terms of preventing harassment which is based on power. You recently wrote a column about the sexual harassment training programs that are used in corporate america. And how they often don't work very well but you also had a lot of suggestions for approaches that that do work at least work better. Can you walk us through a few lows. Sure the one that. I found the most interesting. Because it's been proven research on places where it's already been used as called bystander. Training an essentially it's everyone's responsibility to prevent harassment. So.

And sets his priorities and objectives, and it was in their retreat, the his highness ship, but I should on the tomb was the Prime Minister Buea, and also the ruler of Dubai discussed the idea of going to Mars as a means by which we can challenge the development of science and technology skills across the board, and elevate that and be a country. A nation was able to design and develop complex systems, and it was from there that the team at the. Space Center was tasked with looking at. How do we get tomorrow? How to design develop a mission there? How are you going to develop the capabilities around that and most importantly? How are you going to get there?

Who Water Vapor there happens to the dust storms and more importantly, what we also want to look is atmospheric loss, and the loss of hydrogen oxygen from the top of the Martian atmosphere, and this allows us to have a more holistic understanding of the planet, and how it's awesome, atmosphere and also. Also, the dynamics of the atmosphere as a whole now. Why is that different? Why is it noble than other missions? Because we all know about what what makes up the atmosphere, Mars we know about temperatures, but prior to this missions have looked at it not throughout an entire day, so looked at it during two timeslots of the day. Either two am to be and for us we'll.

"Would sigh or get up and leave in the middle of someone testifying about something traumatic and she says it was worse for her transgender clients when one transgender woman struggled to explain an incident in her past. Talia says Judge Munoz asked if her memory had been impaired by hormone therapy and Trans Women. Judge Munoz insisted on using the wrong pronouns calling them Sir and addressing them by their former names the judge would say you know if peewee Herman were in my courtroom. I wouldn't call him peewee. I would call him Paul After. She started seeing more of these cases in two thousand eleven judge. Kunio says. She asked her bosses for guidance about which pronouns to us but never heard anything. She says she even asked one of her clerks to research. What the law said about it and didn't find anything and she says there was a practical reason why she referred to transgender women using male pronouns. Like he him that she had to keep the written record consistent. It's not a social issue. I'm not in. They're trying to change the world. I'm just in. They're trying to deal with the law. One of the big complaints against her was that she didn't understand the basics. The gender identity is totally separate from sexual orientation. Immigration officials are trained about this but judges. Don't get that training you know. I'm not an expert on Trans and the history of cases were based on just Gay Asylum cases so when Trans evolved as a more common type of case we didn't have any training or background materials. Talia another lawyers. I talked with say Judge Moon wanted help. She could have read their evidence and listen to experts who explained that discrimination against transgender women is different from discrimination against gay and Lesbian People. I will say there there. Certainly is more awareness. Generally in society now than there was ten years ago And yet they're still alive. I think between mockery. It felt like an attack for years. I sent hundreds of Trans Women before. Judge Mona's a judge with one of the highest denial rates in the country. A judge who records show regularly CAST DOUBT ON PEOPLE'S GENDER identity after years of filing complaints and seeing no discipline no change. A few lawyers decided to fight back. They picked a case that was scheduled for Judge Moon. Llosa's Court and set it up for an appeal. They wanted to force higher courts to say she was wrong. I think are the same.

"I'm actually. I'm going around the corner to interview of former immigration. Judge which one. Lorraine Munoz. Oh Wow okay. Yeah why why do you say that? I'm not GONNA say anything. That's the kind of reaction Patrick got from a lot of lawyers he asked about. Judge Lorraine Munoz. She has something of a reputation. She's known for being tough. Her rulings had a huge impact on one specific community transgender people who had fled their countries because they were afraid for their lives. They came to the. Us seeking asylum. And almost every time. Judge Munoz. Turn them away rejecting more asylum claims than almost anyone else in the country. How can one judge hold so much power? And what she fair. That's what Patrick wants to find out. Lorraine Munoz never planned on becoming judge. The only lawyers I ever knew were what you saw on TV. I mean I had never met a lawyer in my life. That's a good thing. I guess she grew up in east. La As a second generation American. Her grandparents emigrated from Mexico. She taught elementary school while she studied law at night and when she got her degree she was an advocate she represented immigrants farm workers and refugees fleeing Civil Wars El Salvador Honduras. Then when her son was just a few years old her husband died she knew about a government job with better pay and more security in nineteen ninety-seven. She became an immigration judge. That was a single mom. I had a child trace and the immigration court was hiring but I was shocked at how many people it was like. Oh you're selling out. It was a huge shift as a lawyer. She represented individual immigrants fighting to get them status as a judge. She was the gatekeeper. I was no longer an advocate. I now have a responsibility to maintain a system. She spent a few days at judge. School then found herself on the bench. Our own courtroom the first time you sit up there in your own immigration court running the show. What's that like really awkward? I mean it's so self conscious you're sitting.

"Happened since the immigration judge approved this girl's request for voluntary departure. She talked with their family for the first time. Though now Malia explained to me what that first and only recent video call with with the girl was like and the whole where all new Iran. Ah told me that the girl said hi umbrella and she said Hello my child and that she was crying and she spent seven years crying for her. And the girl said. Oh I will allow but I've already asked from deportation and and I'm going to go and told her come over here. Come with us you can go doing on. Lula's give almost build. Donya Malia learned in this conversation that the girl hasn't learned how to read she's been in the United States for more than six years and she still doesn't know how to read. She also shared that. Most of her days are good but that she's still self harming sometimes and Dona Amalia also said that. She pushed back when the girl said that she wanted to go back to. Dudas the gave us yama visit a busy a long way I saw. What is she going to go do over there to to lose herself to raise children? She's GonNa get passed around from man to man that's what she's headed to do more with dancing. Neither he or she gets is unbeatable. Just gets me. She was lost to us. We didn't have hope we didn't have anything and today we do because we know that the kids are alive. They might be well. They might not be well but they're alive. So has this interaction with her family. Chains the girls desire to leave the country. It's unclear if the girl has formally asked legally asked to change her petition to the courts. The case manager has also been in touch with the family. So there's finally this connection between the government and the family members in the US who are still willing to sponsor her but after some initial contact the family says the case manager is mostly ignoring their calls. Obviously they're worried about losing contact again assuming she does go back to Honduras. Does her family there no win? She might becoming well. I have been able to talk with birth mom. She hasn't been in contact with her daughters since she left on. Liudas eight years ago. She heard from her for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Walk the person. I'm told me that the girl said she didn't want to go back to unload us after all that she wanted to stay with her and with her grandmother. Donio Malia. They're the ones who raise turn. She told me and since they decided to try and give this girl future. I don't WanNa see it twisted around. That's what she told me. She'd said that the growth should be with her family and her family is Danica.

"Mentioned the first time that she was sent to. Shiloh sources have told me she then went to a shelter in New York and then she was sent back to Shiloh. Then a few months ago she was sent to a shelter back in Oregon and and at some point in all of this. The girls started to believe that her family abandoned her that they didn't want her that they didn't care for her when during that whole time they were thinking about her and they wanted her back. Doesn't the girl have a representative or a lawyer? That would stop this from happening. Who who's at fault here since we still don't know why. The government cut off contact. It's hard to say exactly. Who's at fault? We do know that the girl has had a number of people representing her over time. I don't yet know the total number of attorneys that she's had but that's one of the challenges that comes with prolonged attention. The inability to how steady legal representation attorneys came and went and the girl stayed. The girl also has an advocate. That advocate is different than the attorney that represents her she supports what's best for the girl. The attorney represents what the girl wants. Then what the girl wants. And what's best for her aren't necessarily the same thing. So that brings us back to the hearing that you flew out to Portland to watch where you heard that the girl was going to ask to be deported right. So this is this really important hearing and I heard so much about the girl but I never seen her much less talk to her check. Check check okay. So I'm back in my hotel room so this is what you recorded after you witness the girl's court proceeding. I recognize the girl right away as soon as she walked and she came in wearing I think like black pants but she had this really pretty cream. Colored top with flared sleeves on the arms. And then Kinda like black lace work going down the middle and then just black piping Over some parts of of the blouse she had her hair totally pulled back in a ponytail and she had a whole bunch of like pink. Baratz on With I don't know if it was like hearts or bears or something. Was there anything else that you noticed about the girl? She seemed nervous. She was constantly fidgeting and looking around they called the kids into the courtroom and since these hearings are open to the public I just went in after them and inside. There was a big department of Justice seal on the wall behind the judge. And there was wood paneling on the walls and there were about a dozen kids listening in the courtroom. Okay so the judge called AAC ACE and the attorney for the respondents said that she wanted this other case to be heard. I and it turns out to be the girl the girl whose case I'd been following so the girl steps to the front she. She takes her seat. She puts her headphones on so that she can understand the interpreter. He reads her name and he asks her. If that's her and she says yes see so. This girl has been here from the age of ten. And she's seventeen now and she still needs an interpreter. Clearly she can say some words in English But she is most comfortable communicating in Spanish. The thing that I'm caught up on here is that she's been in the US for years but she hasn't had consistent access to real education. She's not allowed to access social media accounts. I mean what are they doing to her like? She doesn't even have a cell phone which she can contact anybody. Yeah I mean that's what we're trying figure out. I know that the shelter that she's at now Morrison Like many other shelters. It's sort of a revolving educational program because these shelters again. They're not designed to hold kids for more than a few months. Maybe a year certainly not six years and so I've wondered like how many times has she learned the. Abc's how many times has she learned to bliss to his four and it's impossible to know there have been so many layers and there hasn't been a layer where I'm like. Oh this makes sense right they. They've they've kept her. They've kept her from her family. Remember she came here seeking asylum like her. Her uncle was brutally murdering. That's no joke. I've seen the death certificate. I've talked to enough people to know what happened. What what that was like in her family is trying to bring her hair so that she has a life and look at the life she's had yeah What.

"Why they were never released their family. And that's unclear how there's one theory that because the girl is in blood related to the O.`Neil Malian aunt government officials didn't WANNA turn her over but her brother is blood related and so that theory sort of flies out the window it could be that the government sought. The family wasn't fit for reason. The family says they don't know that they didn't hear any explanation from the government and I haven't been able to get an answer either. Did the family have any documentation of this absolutely? They had a lot of documentation that they tried their best to prove to the government that they were indeed the family of these two children and that they were fit and that they wanted the children back. So there's no doubt that the government identified this family as the sponsoring family. The girl was in touch with the family. Through the beginning of two thousand fifteen but then the phone calls stopped. The family didn't hear from them or anything about them for five years and there are an Iro. That's Lohan again telling me they buried her. The government buried her and that line has really stuck with me. She saying that the government buried this child. They'd silenced her underground. The family says they kept calling the phone numbers that they had furred case manager. And the caseworker. That they had previously been in touch with but nothing. No one answered weeks went by and those turned into months and at some point. The phone number that they had was disconnected. I recently tried calling two phone numbers that I found on documents associated with the case worker at the time one was out of order and the other belong to a new user so this family is no longer hearing from the kids. They can't get anyone from the government to respond. So what was it like for this family for this family Al? This wasn't family separation for them. These children were disappeared not themselves am. He's John Maria your get. His own went duck woman. That Ron your meal goater tourists who we and then I want them to be. We didn't know where they were. That's the thing I was dying from. Tears it asks are they dead. How are they my God? How MUSCLES SUFFERING NAKED. Hungary and the family was so petrified of the government itself not just of government officials but also of contractors associated with the whole shelter system so attorneys and advocates in case workers and case managers for Looney Amalia. She called on the one authorities. She's always placed her faith in God in your mother's your mother. You were to sort of us but I called on my God. I called on Him Jehovah. You are powerful.

That all of the children that were taken from their families have to be returned. They said that mother is blizzard. Embiid compares World Jesus. It's it's truly terrible in the end. There's really no equal comparison. It's as if they were dead as if they were dead. We knew nothing nothing and it was clear over several days talking with her in person that she thinks about the kids all of the time. It's not like there. Were certain things that reminded her of the kids. It was constant none of the family out in North Carolina or Dudas had heard anything about the girl or the boy until I started poking around. I'm talking to reveals out auto about a case of a seventeen year old girl from Honduras who's been held in. Us custody for six years when.

"How to run. That's funny I'm Malia every time I meet her. She wears really bright clothing with her hair tucked under a kerchief and she wears these big frilly aprons and the wrinkles on her face and her hands are deep and at ninety four years old. They give us a preview of how much life she seen from her and from other family members. I've learned the back story of how some of the family came to the. Us In twenty twelve. Bonia Molly has grandson was brutally murdered. He was shot and the vehicle that he was driving was set ablaze. Melting off whole parts of his body. His death marked one of roughly seven thousand homicides and on notice that year and we should say. Honduras is a pretty small country. Yes so seven. Thousand is a big number. Yeah it's about the size of Louisiana and as the family made arrangements for his funeral they also mapped out their escape. They'd sometimes received threats to their lives and wellbeing which they'd previously pushed aside but now those threats no longer felt hollow though now Malia and the family made their way I to the capital on Lula's then north to Mexico and then finally to the United States. They wanted to be here first so that they could set up for the others who were still on their way a few weeks later the girl her brother another aunt and a cousin arrived at the border and the girl and her brother are separated from that aunt and cousin pretty much right away. This isn't uncommon in fact it's standard practice to separate any child from an adult who isn't their birth mother or their birth father did immigration officials. Keep the kids together though at first yes. The two kids were shuffled together. I to foster care in Oregon and then sources tell me to foster care in Massachusetts. The girl had a really tough time being away from her family and it kept getting worse. The longer she was in the brother and the sister would call the Nehemiah from time to time and tell them how they were doing a anaemia Cesar Chavez solar power. Looney I'm Ali here. She was telling me the girl. Bi She'd hit herself. She cut herself with knives body. A basis not a lunar buddy was debbie era. Get people. They'll speak done just obvious if your they kept putting her in the hospital. She told me a lot of times. Not just once lots of times and so I asked her what kind of hospital. And she said who knows it or feel a little bit. She hid herself. She hit herself with something sharp. She told me Lake One of those so she was pointing at the wall and I asked her demon the wall and she said yes like the wall and from there we never knew anything else about her nothing. Nothing at all does the feeling of why she was hurting herself. They told me that she had never harder south. Before coming to the United States one family members says that the girl got the idea that if she hurt herself she'd get attention and they release her back to her family so up to this point the brother and sister were together and US policy is to release minors.

"Forward to seeing her today but we'll see how it goes. Okay let's pause on the court case for a minute and just go back. How did this girl gets to the point? Which is asking to be deported. What happened to her? This is exactly what I wanted to now. From the moment I heard about the case. I didn't have much to go on I. I only knew that the girl had been in the system for more than six years and that she mentioned the name of an aunt who was possibly living in undo us. I was finally able to find that aunt. She wasn't in on it as she was right here in the United States so this aunt helped to raise the girl along with the Alita with with the grandmother and it came to find out that she's the person that's named on government documents as the girls potential sponsor. Back in two thousand thirteen and two thousand fourteen. Which means that she's the one that the US government was supposed to give the girl back to after they separated her from her family at the border. And I should say that we're not naming many of the people in the story because their victims of trauma or or underaged or or simply worried about being deported. Some people have wanted to be named like the girl's grandmother Dona Amalia. She lives with the girls aunt in North Carolina. I went visit them. They they live in the countryside where agricultural fields dominate the landscape. She lives in a very small home with a big brood of chickens that she feeds kitchen scraps two and three little puppies. Lope around. They're still learning.

"Of found out that the girl had family here in the US Family. She wanted to be with and that family wanted to be with her for reasons. We can't figure out the United States government cut off communication between them. The last time they were in touch was five years ago as Outta was reporting on this case she found out about an important hearing that was about to happen. It's Thursday January sixteen around eleven in the morning I'm here in Portland because I found out that the girl has an upcoming court date. It's Today Outta couldn't bring her recorder into the hearing so she taped these notes in her hotel room across the street from the immigration courtroom in downtown Portland just heavy energy in that room. I have heard from several sources that she wanted to voluntarily deported herself out. A joins me now in the studio in. Outta who is this young girl? You're talking about. Yeah so the girl whose case I've been following US her name because she is a minor and she's experienced an incredible amount of trauma. She's seventeen she's originally from dudas and she migrated to this country with her brother and he's fourteen now they were in a foster family but then they were torn apart and have had a very different experience from one another in the system. His story is a whole other case in and of itself. But today we're going to focus on the girl. She spent longer in federal immigration custody than any other kid I've ever heard about and at immigration court. She was asking to leave the country voluntarily. She's been in. Us immigration shelters for six or seven. Years I mean that's nearly half for life ahead to wrap my head around at first because her case has thrown into question for me just how much or how little the government is really doing to try and reunify. These children with their families also doing a little math here and that means that she was separated from her family during the Obama Administration. Right so we usually associate family separation with the trump administration. And we know that it happened under Obama. I just didn't know what that exactly meant until I heard about this girl. So you said you've talked with your family right. And they told me that they hadn't heard anything about her for five years and so when I told them that I was going to Portland for the case. It was the first time they'd even heard that she had a court date and they asked me to relay a message to her. And while you're in your hotel room you were getting those materials together to share with her. So I printed out a photo of a couple of people that I think that she probably will remember and I think I'm going to write that message on there. It basically tells her don't sign your deportation order more specifically you can't sign that deportation order because we're still here We miss you so much. We can't wait to see you again. The family you know very much wants to have her back so I'm looking forward to seeing her today but we'll see how.

"Would have been using the ipad for everything but i don't i still use my mac for a lot of things now i have been trying more in recent months to use the ipad for some for writing stuff i'll take it and bike down to the coffee shop near my house and i like how light it is i can carry with it and to mike is point it was the smart keyboard which really turned me around because i've tried a bunch of external bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases and all that and i found them all kind of clunky in making the device heavier to the point that was like why don't i just take my macbook air which is not a heavy computer in the first place so a lot of times i still end up falling back to my mac for a lot of the other work that i do just because of the apps that i have there and the the sort of customization personalization that i have in my in my mac so i'm struggling to fit entirely into my workflow but i've i've make an effort to make an effort so six years later i like to think every you're capable of doing everything there's very little that i feel like i can't do if i really need to on ipad it's just that i prefer using my members of the time probably the most surprising way that i use my mobile device is that i use my iphone for live blogging and this is particularly surprising because i have pretty serious repetitive strain in trees so i had to quit doing any kind of deadline reporting especially if it involves a laptop in the late nineties so it's been like ages since i've done deadline reporting but when i got involved in local school politics here in portland i started live blogging meetings the kind were big decisions happen but like nobody is there to witness it and i her using my iphone and i realized i could type really quickly on the on screen keyboard using my thumbs which are not injured so it was really exciting for me to be able to get to do this thing that i haven't been able to do in so long and blog through facebook there's a big community that follows the blog and i'm able to take pictures of documents notes on white ports in addison right away so for me it's it's surprising because you would think or i would think at least that the iphone i never would have expected that i would use my iphone like that and it's given me the ability because it's so different organic ly to these things that i really enjoy that i that i haven't been able to do on my mac 'cause i injured myself using the mac so might unexpected use foot it is interesting six years later to see how we are just using you never really know it's actually what's going to happen with the device we can guess when they come out but it's it really takes a few years before we see that there may be ways to use it that we hadn't even thought of before to schedule for six years from today yes well until then it looks like we have reached the end of the show but before we do we've got just enough time for a bonus question but before we.

"And the reason i did it was because of mike is point that i've always seen that apple's products are very high quality and so that was the end result i was looking for but we'll have to wait another week whether it turned out as well as i hoped next week's topic right there for your thoughts on that let's go to our last topic which comes from shali about six years ago dan you wrote an article for macworld about using the i've had and only the ipad for work an idea that was a bit daring back then to my question is what do you find yourself using or not using your mobile devices for now that you might have never expected i'm going to have to say just i think it's just the simple fact that there's so much more that i can do on even just my iphone that before i would run to my mac to do like my man gets to take a break after five pm for most of the time because i can remember one time this has been a couple years ago or maybe three or four i can't remember it's been a while ago and i was at c s and there was a a quick story that i wanted to put together and at the time i was working for a video news company and so making a story means making video and i remember going around and capturing it was like it might as well been an apple commercial i went around was capturing the footage of different things that i wanted and i just leaned myself up against a poll so that i knew that i wasn't standing in anyone's way and i sat there with my phone turned into landscape mode and i made the entire video on my iphone in movie and was able to then take it and drop it into dropbox and then go into slack and send that link to the person who was on the ground in columbia missouri who was the one uploading our content and all of that i was able to do the full extent of my job right from my phone and so that like that's incredible and the same thing double goes for the ipad my talked before about how much i love my ten point five inch i had pro it is my hitchhikers guide to the galaxy it is a perfect size it's got all the functionality i want and because i'm a monster apparently i frigging love the keyboard that the smart keyboard case whatever the heck it's called i love that keyboard i love typing with that keyboard i love how feels i it's great and so i can do so much from the ipad that i would normally do on my mac and so my mac is mostly left for things that require two screens or require some superintendents editing audio video everything else i can do on my phone or my ipad and that's fantastic i feel free jeff what about you i'm going to echo dan what he said earlier for me unexpected thing is a lot of home kit stuff controlling lights and switches partially that is the tiein with siri being able to do it by voice what's i mean doing lights that's that's one thing surprisingly what i find more useful is just to have a few you know on off smart switches for example the printer that we own is upstairs in my office and i would say ninety percent of the time that my wife and i need to print something we are downstairs in the living room rather than you know come up turn it on wait for it to heat up go back down print the thing literally i just invoked the magic hey you know who command and say turn on the printer and it happens print the whatever it is even printing from the iphone and then you know ask it to turn the printer off it's sort of it removed a whole layer of irritation and for that like i love it i really didn't think this is gonna come back and bite me this many years later oh so yeah at the time that was kind of a big deal as an experiment because was fairly early on in the ipads life and you know if you'd asked me then part of me would have thought been six years from then i.

"And i ran into some complications mainly those being that it feels like the photo book tools in photos haven't really changed since iphoto so my question for you is do you make photo books do and if so what do you use kelly well i really only have the answer to the first part of that question which is no i don't i used to make them every holiday season and i also used to make picture books for babies in the family and that was really fun and i did use iphoto and i thought it was crate but i have found that i rarely edit my photos anymore other than cropping them and i really do projects with them because the overwhelming majority of my sharing is through social media and from my iphone so i actually had to go photos and take a look at it and you're right it looks exactly the way it has always looked when i do do prints usually use snap fish 'cause i liked the quality of their prints like i made some large canvas prints i will auction the spring but i haven't done photo books in a long time interestingly i just got a photo book in the mail this morning there's a company called canvas pop which typically makes a huge canvas prints for your wall so you send in a photo they printed onto a canvas they stretch out that canvas onto the board and you can hang it up while now they're doing books and i got to got to try out the apple little early and create a little book for myself and of course i filled it with photos of my dogs and is the best thing put up the book and the front and back cover have photos of my dogs on it and the whole thing is filled with photos and i almost wish like i would have taken the time to i don't know right up a little story about chihuahuas or something so that i could read the books because i would love to do that but yeah i've used the photo book thing jig before dan within photos and it was a little bit complicated that said whoever prince apple's books does a very good job in my humble opinion they are really high quality they come in this really nice packaging and the like the way that it's printed the paper the way that it's put together it all looks very very good so maybe it's just like they've they've put this barrier to entry it's like you have to work to get this beautiful product at the end if you can survive photos for mac then you can have this beautiful book that has all your memories in it but yeah i like making photo books every once in a while jeff what about you i think that last point is exactly the reason that i do not make a photo books which is odd because i i'm a photographer i make a lot of photos you would think and i should there's a lot of guilt here i should make a lot of photo books but it's work it it takes time you have to to sort edit and crop and it takes more than just sort of casual effort and when we can share things on facebook and twitter with pretty much nothing but casual effort that's that's the way to go in terms of prints i'm going to sound just as lazy like i'm embarrassed to admit this but whenever we need just like some quick prints like if my daughter needs to take some pictures to school there's a walgreens literally half a mile away and using their app which is okay it's not great i can upload some images have them printed in an hour or two and the quality is perfectly fine for things that are that are more precious things like larger prints all order through a company called bay photo and they do a really good job and their online tools are not terrible how about that it's a lot of yeah i don't make footer books very much this was coming up for like a family birthday and i wanted to assemble a bunch of photos from family members and put them together it's it's not just the tools clunky it's that they're actively broken in some ways like dragon dropping food we'll just stop working and you'll have to quit the app and restart it and it's like i don't think anybody at apple has has used these tools in a while 'cause they don't work very well so i struggled through it and i made it.

"Salt and even more ridiculously it's voice activated so you you can ask your favorite appliance alexa or whatever to say dispense half a teaspoon of salt of course you have to pick it up and you have to put it over the spot that you need to dispense so basically it's just this ridiculous time suck that also moves the light away from other people i guess it's ridiculous in terms of something that is not silly would be the simple pleasure of activating timers using an apple watch or home pot or alexa all the time first of all i want to say that the smart trash can't thing we'll know it's really intelligent when it like spits it back out in his life why do you keep stuffing trash this is true it has become sentient how smart could have really be for me i mean i will just go with something basic that i thought would be ridiculous the idea of smart light bulbs in and of themselves seem a little ridiculous right we have light we have technology that has existed for a long time that seems to work just fine why do we need had intelligence to it but i have been won over i've many hugh lights in my house now and i've added a bunch of extra accessories like like wireless switches and i use my eco to control them and i like him a lot i have to say like i have a replaced i replacing like my overhead lights and all my rooms but i don't use those as much as mainly just the lamps but i really do love having the ability to control those by the voice or whatever i mean i've seen some ridiculous pitches in the past as i'm sure we all have i feel like i've seen a smart near pitch a couple times that like i want to believe but at the same time just the idea of embedding all that stuff in your bathroom mirror seems like a really bad idea similarly smart refrigerators i like the idea but like i don't really want my refrigerator telling me you are out of mook please get some yeah i i always a little cautious when it comes to these implementations i agree and it's kind of interesting that so many of these things mentioned have been kitchen smart devices because i think we've been seeing a lot of companies push into the kitchen recently and it seems like there's potential there but a lot of the appliances in gadgets seem like answers searching for problems the example that i have is smarty pans i don't know if you guys have seen this at the two hundred thirty dollars mark frying pan and it communicates using bluetooth with your phone at tracks the nutritional value of food you add to it so say you are gonna make recipe that involves coconut oil could voice using your voice with your phone say coconut oil and then you dump it into the pan it actually measures it calculates the nutritional value so you can add up like all the calories in fisher making so i mean that sounds kinda cool i can see that being useful and it tracks calories in it can sync with your fitness trackers some of the weirder things that does it can shear you're like you can make a recipe using the pan and then share that with friends or guide you through a recipe me all that sounds kinda cool but i mean the questions i have with all these are would you really use it so do you really wanna have to charge your frying pan how many risks do you create that are completely assembled in a in a pan just in the frying pan like all the time and is it really that hard to use measuring cups do you really need to have something that can measure your salt for you can't you just do it by yourself i think you can do yourself and i think you can sort your trash by yourself believe in you i believe thank you all for answers there let's go onto the next topic which comes from jeff so if you go to the app store on irs nowadays it almost feels like you're reading a magazine apples making this big push into publishing original editorial content making the experience more interesting than just browsing virtual store shelves.
