This question like what is going on here. She would even ask me like why women dying to be thin.

I met women of color who were hiv positive. And we're attaining an hiv medication adherence clinic where i was a researcher who refuse to take their medications for fear of gaining weight. And i thought oh. Wow you know this. What was clearly a phenomenon that was mostly about middle class white women in the nineteen sixties arguably even through the ninety s.

Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

Burke that's how you pronounce your last name she's the young woman from Sweden I guess has been skipping school in somewhere sitting in front of buildings in school in Sweden the global climate strike beginning of September twenty eighth as well. so. here's I'm. here's my take on this I'm. if you work for a company. you can do an advocate I would hope most anything that you would like. but if you work for a company then you're going to try to impose a point of view on that company by striking. if I own the company or if I'm a stockholder in their company and you were going to try to either shut down the company or diminish the efficiency and the effectiveness of that company for a political viewpoint which may be right may be wrong one which you might believe in whole heartedly okay or what ever it is would you believe in you are putting your job in jeopardy if there is a strike the deals with the company in terms of its its labor practices if there's a strike the deals with monetary compensation. what work working conditions all the more traditional aspects of of union organizers now I believe I don't know that Amazon employees are unionized this set may have nothing to do with with union issues but clearly. if you work for Amazon love to hear from you early this year there was this this is furnishing company I think it's based in Boston we fear dip based in Natick Boston yeah okay but I think they have some head quarters down in Boston or some nice corporate space and they had sort of a wild cat walk out one day. when they were upset that their company which is a furniture company was going to supply beds for people who do not have beds to sleep in who are being detained in the. in immigration centers if you will along the southern border now you might think well they're doing that to make life miserable for the the people who are coming here in seeking immigration status no no. we knew we knew that obviously the the circumstances of the people at the border in these immigration facilities was pretty difficult crowded they they didn't have enough beds no. the the company was basically in business doing what it does which is sell furniture and in this case they were selling furniture is to through to the border patrol furnishings to the border patrol this case beds so the people who were being held as they had been apprehended trying to enter the country illegally while their status could be adjudicated by some form of a judge tribunal all members of administrative agency. they at least could be a little bit more comfortable so all of this is nothing more than virtue signalling as far as I'm concerned I don't know if Amazon is a union per se but if these they're not thank you very much they're not I didn't think they were but I wanted to make sure of that these nine hundred employees and it says they plan a strike over climate change that was tried to me that's the headline means and it is a strike is it open ended work stoppage. if you have a a a a a our protests were everybody's not going to answer the phone that's really not a strike that some sort of a work stoppage if I were the head of Amazon and god that I were Jeff Bezos I guess is the head of Amazon I would say if you want to strike you walk out the building whatever it is September twentieth whatever that that's a Friday in you're kind of looking for a long weekend just keep walking because if that's if you're gonna whatever your view point is we what happens it next week we have a strike from people who are opposed to something else maybe they want to strike in solidarity with the people in Hong Kong were concerned about being extradited back to China. through a through a law which which the very upset about maybe they want to strike because some NFL team has not fired some player who's been accused of domestic abuse maybe they want to strike because president trump has fire too many of its employees he can't seem to hire a staff which he caught fire I'd love to hear from you how sympathetic would it be and if you got is just say to me well I'm in favor with their of their thoughts on climate change what would you be favor on the equally passionate thoughts about let's say right to life or ending the death penalty or what ever political because you want to talk about six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. again I'm Jeff Bezos I'm gonna say you folks want to strike go right ahead unemployment is low you're more people looking for jobs and guess what what you're doing is not brain surgery I can replace you by Monday morning six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty..

this sort of this is how it gets done I mean you got to you kids you got to be held accountable some point in life they're in college in yet and they know their parents in the what about what someone grease the women and men yeah I mean what would let's distinguish between the helicopter parent who's flying over the road and looking and saying Joey you're gonna there's a little bump up ahead get prepared get ready the road is going to be difficult to head they're going to be some some bombs get ready and we are here I'm I'm not the Bob let me hold you over at my own life to make sure all let me count you over then go on and then the next one comes let me know and I will fix it too and that's the lawn mower or the snow plow close through the road and change the road for you sweetheart not change you to adapt to the road okay wait that that's so great needs to be said again you want to prepare your kids for lice but on the other hand these parents have changed life for their children there's nothing wrong with preparing your children to do in fact it's a guest it's a gift to help children learn discipline learn how to express frustration learn how to deal with difficulties adversaries adversarial situations challenges obstacles the snow plow parent along or parent just comes in and clears out the obstacle okay you can go now if the teacher gives Jimmy detention if teachers taught and the teacher the parent because any of the teacher these are things we're hearing about for several years right exactly and I think that we've always had a culture of that's what I will call child centric goes back to the pilgrims and yeah they were a little more disciplinarian about it but the I think that we have a we've developed a self esteem culture here's your trophy for participating you were the first person to come in last the resolution okay you got excel in something so what we're doing to these children is creating a self esteem culture very clear about this self esteem is cancer for the emotions we don't want kids who have high self esteem we want kids who can unconditionally accept who they are I'm not perfect I didn't go to Harvard or Yale or pan right I am who I am but otherwise with their learning is how I don't have a degree from yet from Yale I'm not very worthwhile I had someone on this week saying that every time you enable your child imagine yourself cutting them if you really want is not good want to get down to brass tacks in and and get a real analogy of what you're doing your kid imagine I'm enabling no you're cutting them so so let me ask right now from a parent I think I might be a little culpable in in being a little bit too much of a helicopter parent a snow plow perinatal in my kid how do I stop how do I draw back in this day and age because all the other parents are doing it there are polluting it to social media my kids a great look at the birthday party through for them the other I have a slide that I prepared on how to spoil your children okay for quick things number one don't enforce consistent age appropriate limits when and do what they want to do shield your children from normal everyday frustrations in other words whatever happens make sure they don't feel any frustrate those frustrations I don't they built it up they create strange providing material gifts even when the child has not behave appropriately and make sure that you bribe your kid to do whatever it is you want that child to do and then beat example of a liar or cheater all docket goes so far not what we say but what we do if they see you doing that that's what they learned they sit in the backseat of the car and they watch what you do with that stop sign today if you have money you think don't worry about that I can buy my way out and that's the message we're giving look everyone's jumping onto this Jared Kushner's father gave two and a half million dollars to Harvard and he got in that happens in this world that's why it's unfortunate many people eighty seven percent of thirty four percent of people say it's unfair but that what happens in this world did they sit down and changes SAT score I don't think so yeah do they make believe he was a you know a veteran of some more war no they cut his head on the body of another pole vaulter to get him into though this is the way life is unfortunately but I so what do we do I think what we do is we have to talk to our children very differently today so wait even from yesterday we talked to them one way but today we might realize we need to bring this fax announced a you know what let's stylist back this scandal or to be the topic of conversation every dinner table wait to parents still have dinner with kids I don't know if not they ought to be doing this forty second someone and what else can we do and what if one parent is a helicopter pad on the other wants to pull back how do you do that magnanimously that's for another segment what is that opens up divorced possibilities very quickly talk to your children honey we have for things we have to get done today you pick one that you'd like to do and I'll help you along with it and I'm a step back and go do what I have to do Zac give children a voice it gives children a sense of pride and help children understand that there are actual responsibilities in life we all actually have to do you don't

One more clip, and then a little psychoanalysis we put out some generic questionnaires which were filled out by completely anonymous police officers their responses are I opening frightening. And time sad one officer wrote simply yes, I am frustrated because I'm a law enforcement officer that is told not to enforce the law. Another wrote. It's simple start keeping criminals in jail. Judges need to stop giving them ridiculously low sentences and prosecutors need to stop accepting cheesy plea deals and actually lock people up when they commit a crime. That's all it would take to drastically lower. Seattle's crime rates another officer said people come here because it's called free Attal.

This officer continues in the last five years, there has been a culture shift in it started with the legislature, decriminalizing felonies and dumping convicts onto the streets. And then there is this an officer says, even if quality warrant arrests are made the judicial system sees fit to let them out of jail within a couple of days often the next day.

"Like over the summer doing computer stuff, they had a position open up and after resisting for literally as long as I could I took it because there was nothing else for me to you. And I remember when we. In rob. We were there visiting you. And like we wanted to go and see the buildings and like wander around, and you were like this is where I go everyday for work. But for us, it was this like, and it is it's this campus. That's pretty small. It's pretty secluded. And so we were like walking through memories literally or engaging with what had changed and you're dislike. Yeah. I I need to go get food or like where I go. That's where I buy coke. So this feeling that the place you were in was very real when you were there. And then it like it hasn't changed at all. While you were gone, or maybe it didn't even exist while you were gone is is very real. And I wasn't that since since I've left. I've I've thankfully recovered that. Sure. About the place. I don't think my my time working. There has diminish it if anything it adds some like texture retrospectively because I appreciated that job probably less than I could have like had it. Yeah. Yeah. I can only appreciate I have the benefit of hindsight. So so after kind of my suggestion if you don't like your current circumstances to get some hindsight. So after pooh-poohing the opening of this book, let me just say I does set the rest of this book up for that kind of lens of thinking. So we're back in nineteen forty two. Gene is a sixteen year old boy at this at the school. And he references later like the way that all the teachers feel about them in nineteen forty two with the war on. I think we reminded them of what peace was like we boys of sixteen we registered with no draft board. We had taken no physical examinations. No one had ever tested us for hernia or color. Blindness is going on about how they have not engaged with the world at large yet. Even as the world is kind of moving forward in this. Great calamity. I share that quote, also because these boys don't quite feel sixteen. I don't know what I was like at sixteen. But these boys feel mostly like twelve and I don't really feel younger. I thought you were gonna say they felt an older. No except for the they're reading about like Caesar and stuff. Like most of what we see of them in. This opening section is like them jumping out of a tree and then four secret society. I do remember like the jumping of the trade stuff being kind of the the pivotal event that the book kind of swings. And it's and it's. Mike the time of my life where like jumping out of a tree. Because it was fun because there is a chance I might hurt myself like that I feel like outgrew that by sixteen by sixteen. I was like man, let's I'm going to go on a date with maybe a girl. Maybe. Yeah. And that's like not really intimately. What I was really not in the book at all any sort of like that classic. Like teen. What am I gonna do romantically with my life where the John green at all? Yeah. There's no John green in this John Knowles. And it's a little like ho what are the the? They're kind of like hermetically sealed in this acade- carefree verses academia kind of tension. So anyway, nineteen thirty nine is when the war started nineteen forty one is when Pearl Harbor happens or in nineteen forty two the war is this impending thing. All these carefree boys are eventually going to be put into the war, somehow, they just know it. But meanwhile, gene and his new best buddy finis or Fini or fin depending on whatever knows decides to call them at any given moment are now best friends because is said, hey, all we're jumping out of this tree today into the river. And the only person he can convince to do it or gene, gene. And then finances like you're my best friend now. And that's just how it works..

"For these sixteen year history of this show we have had conversations in another editorial meetings that the audience is that privy to about stories in which we're fighting for truth dressed in the american way and we're trying to decide how to report them or whether to report them and there is a term of art and we haven't used it here's the term is is it to democracy now democracy now is a longstanding radio show that its history is in public radio not npr but public radio in it is now broadcast on tv it is a explicitly liberal progressive bastion and the question that i think that we face is do we continue to go more in the direction that it takes amp up the scepticism an outrage or pull back and beat two more dispassionate observers of the media seen in the political scene i'm not sure if we can do both of those things so this is where you feel we have gone during the the trump campaign is that what you're saying is yes and thanks in large part to my insistence that we cover trump not as a politician but as a historic threat a potential menace to democracy so yeah i'm and i've been pounding that message is as often as i can and that crosses the line between journalism that we expect into what kind of activism i don't think i ever mentioned hillary clinton's name during the whole course of the campaign but um i and by extension the show became an activist player in anti trumpism sanal what do we do now would we do remember during the bush administration we had to find a framing device we've unnerved didn't know what was going to happen but that's politics like well that's not upbeat and so that we came up with enabling condition condition free speech and privacy all those things that enable the freedom of information in that enable journalism that were not strictly speaking me guess so we came up with the media frame and then when obama wanted await what's on new frame what's our discussion what's it going to be really quickly turned to transparency surveillance.
