Is There a Spanner in the Works for China? David Goldman Explains
"Does what happened in the last three years factor into the rise of China? Well, will nations be less willing because of their seeding the world with those who were infected? Will there be a need for Beijing to do a mea culpa despite being a communist dictatorship? So does a wrench has a spanner being thrown into the works because of COVID for the plans of domination from the CCP? Well it depends on who you talk to. I think in the industry. I'm talking to David P Goldman. That's who I'm talking to. In the democratic world, there's going to be a lot of rancor. The likeliest scenario is that the Wuhan virus came out of an incompetent Chinese lab doing research paid for by Doctor Fauci and his friends and gain of function for a deadly virus. So we've got some wood to chop, where people would chop up in the United States. In response to that, China's main orientation now is towards the 6 billion people of the global south. It wants to dominate and absorb, as I said, assimilate into its economic system, the 700 million people of Southeast Asia. Several 100 million people in South Asia, Brazil, Mexico, and so forth. And it's making great strides to do that. The people of those countries are much more concerned about getting basic telecommunication services, health services and other things, which China is helping them to get. And they're less concerned about who to blame for the virus than what they're going to get tomorrow. We have neglected that. That's something where we should challenge China, China, and compete with them until to toe.

Bethlehem welcomes Christmas tourists after COVID-19 lull
"On this week's AP religion roundup. After a pandemic downturn, there's no room in Bethlehem's ends and the shops are open for business. Tourists crowd sacred sites as one of the stars of Holy Land pilgrimage destinations is rising again as pandemic restrictions subside. Bethlehem is located in the Israeli occupied West Bank just a few miles southeast of Jerusalem. The traditional birthplace of Jesus is usually a hotbed of tourists and Christmas is normally the peak season for visitors. But business owners like saliba Nissan say the pandemic made the city of pilgrims a city of ghosts. I mean, we were closed for almost two years. No, no, no tourists, no nothing. Those pilgrims are returning this year to Bethlehem, but not yet in the numbers of the city saw before the pandemic. Even so, the head of the Bethlehem hotel association, Elias arja, says the rooms are all booked up. The last two years was unbelievable, nobody will come this year. I see it as a 100% equivalency for the three nights of the Christmas Eve and the day of before and the day after. Vendors say recent political violence across the West Bank has indented tourist numbers. More than 140 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli–Palestinian fighting in the West Bank and east Jerusalem this year, making 2022 the deadliest year since 2006. This holiday season, workers are moving quickly to craft products for Christmas shoppers from abroad. They're carving all of what into figurines, major saints coasters, jewelry, kitchenware, and religious symbols. The year before the Corona, I was doing okay, but because the Corona happened is really set me back like 5 years at least by some commons family has owned the blessings gift shop for more than three generations. So even though this year was better, I still need a bit more time, a couple of more years to be back to where I was. Although tourism hasn't fully recovered, this year's influx of visitors is a welcome improvement and an encouraging sign. I'm Walter ratliff

Day 348: Paul Sails for Rome
"It's day three 48. We're reading acts 27. Efficient chapters four 5 and 6, and proper chapter 29 versus 22 through 24. The acts of the apostles, chapter 27 Paul sales for Rome. And when it was decided that we should sail for Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the augustan cohort named Julius. And embarking in a ship of HME, which was about to sail to the ports along the coast of Asia, we put to sea. Accompanied by aristarchus, a Macedonian from thessalonica. The next day we put in at sidon, and Julius treated Paul kindly and gave him leave to go to his friends and be cared for. And putting to sea from there, we sailed under the Lee of Cyprus, because the winds were against us. And when we had sailed across the sea which is off cilicia and pamphilia, we came to Myra and lycia. There the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing for Italy and put us on board. We sailed slowly for a number of days, and arrived with difficulty off sun itis, and as the wind did not allow us to go on, we sailed under the Lee of Crete off salmony. Coasting along it with difficulty, we came to a place called fairhaven's. Near which was the city of la Silla. As much time had been lost, and the voyage was already dangerous because the fast had already gone by, Paul advised them saying, sirs. I perceive that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of cargo and the ship, but also of our lives. But this centurion paid more attention to the captain and to the owner of the ship than to what Paul said, and because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised to put to sea from there on the chance that somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete, looking northeast and southeast and winter there. The storm at sea and when the south wind blew gently, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed the long Crete close inshore. But soon, a tempestuous wind called the northeaster, struck down from the land, and when the ship was caught and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven. And running under the Lee of a small island called kauda, we managed with difficulty to secure the boat. After hoisting it up, they took measures to undergird the ship. Then, fearing that they should run on the surface, they lowered the gear, and so were driven. As we were violently storm tossed, they began next day to throw the cargo overboard, and the third day they cast out with their own hands the tackle of the ship. And when neither sun nor stars appeared for many a day, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned. As they had been long without food, Paul then came forward among them and said, men. You should have listened to me, and should not have set sail from Crete and incurred this injury and loss. I now bid you take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For this very night there stood by me and angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, and he said, do not be afraid Paul. You must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.

That's Friends without the R, best beans. It took to Soto county sheriff's office about 15 minutes to assess the scene, and at four 45 p.m., paramedics pronounced John dead. Shortly after 5 o'clock, deputies called the district 12 medical examiner's office in Sarasota, and asked for an Emmy investigator to get to the scene and examine John's body further. According to case documents, I retrieved from that office, the investigator who made the drive was named Megan zim rack. By 6 30 p.m., Meghan had arrived and joined 7 men who worked for de Soto county sheriff's office, which included a captain, a lieutenant, a major, the sheriff, and a detective. Meghan's report and police narrative state that John had not been touched or moved by anyone in between the time he was first found and when all these investigators arrived. He was face down, mostly submerged in about two feet of water with the back of his right foot and boot sticking out of the water. He was wearing blue jeans and had no shirt on, and floating in the water partially on his back was an old rusty drum. Littered all around the scene in every direction where pieces of trash, metal, and garbage. Photographs of the site are on our website and in the blog post for this episode. They'll help you visualize this scene much better. The images do not show John's body. Parked about 30 feet to the right of where John was, was a four Wheeler, with a wooden trailer attached to the back of it, with trash and a rake still inside of it. Helen and I went through the photos together during our first interview. So here's the, here's the ATV. Right. And then the water is over here. He was found over here. Yep. I think that's after they drained it. It was only two to three feet deep. It wasn't deep at all. And that's after a pretty shallow. Yeah. And you'll see the pumps in a minute. They had a flirty pump. So do you think all these pieces of metal would have been covered by water? They were covered by water. After snapping the pictures, investigator Meghan's sim rack felt John's body and noted in her report that it was warm to the touch and was in full rigor mortis. She turned him over and with help from some others on scene, fished him out of the water by his belt loops. One look at his face showed he had a swollen cut on his right eyelid. But other than that, he looked perfectly fine. Meghan wrote that there was a little bit of blood coming out of his nose and some foam at the corner of his mouth. Within a few minutes, Meghan and the deputies preliminarily determined that John had fallen into the water somehow, and struck his head on a piece of rebar or old pipe, which rendered him unconscious, and he drowned. They brought in some water pumps and drained most of the ditch in order to take some more pictures of the rusty metal shards. After that, Meghan and dcso called the medical examiner in Sarasota to tell him about their drowning theory, and the doctor, a man named William Anderson, agreed it sounded like a drowning accident. He scheduled an autopsy for the following day, July 9th. After that, John's body was removed from the scene and transported to doctor Anderson's office. By 8 o'clock that night, Helen received word that her youngest son was dead. Next thing I know, I'm getting a deputy in my yard saying that my son's been in an accident and, you know, that was unbelievable. I go down the hallway and I open up the door in the cop is pulled up in the driveway and he's like leaned up against his car with his arms crossed and just like a straight face. So what's going on? He's just wait a minute. And I said, what the hell, man? Well, your son's been in an accident. And I said, which one? And he didn't know, or he didn't tell me or whatever. And that, that's when the lightning hit me. I kind of remember because I think I asked the guy what happened did he really explore? 'cause my first thing, you know, he was driving fast, you know, had a wreck. The deputy broke the news to Helen that John was gone, and after that, everything was a blur. But I remember I was in the shower. I don't know what kind of felt sick or something it was kind of like spinning or whatever, but I had all my clothes on it. And I just couldn't believe it. By nightfall, extended family members like Laura wells had learned about John's passing too. We all love John..

"On southeast hansel. And according to his aunt Laura, that arrangement eventually grew on him. He liked it. She catered to him and Matt, so she pretty much catered to both of them. She was from what I mean, I'm not, you know, I don't know perfectly how they were toward each other. But I know that he loved his grandmother and she took care of me. She took care of him, and I think that she cared a lot about those boys. John was responsible for maintaining the large property and doing chores. Because Matt had moved out by the summer of 2003 and was attending a community college about an hour away. Everything fell to John to get done. On Tuesday, July 8th, while on summer break from de Soto county high school, John was doing a chore he'd done plenty of times, packing household trash into a small wooden wagon, rigging the wagon up to the back of a four Wheeler and driving it across the street to dispose of in the Woods. AKA illegally dumping it. Now, I know this probably sounds wild to some of you, especially if you didn't grow up in a rural area. But families all over Arcadia back then used sections of their land to discard household waste. A lot of people buried it or burned it, and some, like John's grandma, just left it in the Woods to degrade and sink into Joshua creek. It's definitely something the department of environmental protection finds people for. If they find out. But in Arcadia, well, nobody out there really cared about the DEP. Anyway, John was last seen going over to dump the trash around 1230 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8th. Four hours later, at four 30 p.m.. This 9-1-1 call came into DeSoto county sheriff's office. Instead of county sheriff's office. 9-1-1? Yes, ma'am. My name is pat strider. And I am from problem out here at my house. I need the emergency people to amble. Okay, what is the problem? Man, ma'am. Okay, are you a southeast handful? Yes, ma'am, my grandson went across the road and he was down a long time. We went over to try to check on him. We made two trips and we've just come back from maybe then we found him in the dead over there underwater. Is there anybody there giving in CPR or anything? And then a.m.? He's been under there a long time. He's been missing since about 22,000. That one 32 and he called and called and we didn't know what was taking place and triggering walking through the pasture. And then I went over there later and called him and you didn't answer so I went and got his friend and we made out and walking and looking for him and they just found him. Okay, do you have a cell phone or anything that you can take over there to try to resuscitate him? And so that means he has to take him out of the water and try to resuscitate. If it's safe for him to do so without getting hurt, he said he can't do that. The can do that? No. Okay. How was your grand demonstrator? He was just 17 the first night. Can you tell if he's breathing whenever you went out there a few minutes ago? Could anyone feel? Is there no bubbles or anything coming up like this? No. I believe he might have gotten some answer a wall for something stunning. Was he with anyone? He went on. No money, no problem. Okay. And this is not only because I was over there like that sometimes the time. It just he was going next to a long time and like so we went over there to look for him and assume that he was walking the pasture. Okay, just saying to him who did you say found him? And how long ago before he called it, she finally? Coincident. 'cause they got me right out of there. Okay, so about ten minutes before you called, or yes, ma'am. Okay, we were just laying there. Tell me what he saw. He's standing water and he saved in a did you think of yourself miss trader? Well, when they built, he's likely to be the fetal position. He's with me curled up. We've been over. Okay, take down. Okay, so I should still have noticed him in a fetal position. To me, I'm a description at the scene. If there were things or something after him, he would have been in there and been over here out of sleep. I don't know why. He would have said that. How deep does the water there? I don't think it's very deep. I mean, we could see his back. So it's just a bit she said. Yes, ma'am. Okay, maybe two foot, three foot, what would you guess? Two or three feet of water. That's enough. I'm sorry. That's the most. What kind of person? She's hardly getting torn and covered with water when he is. Is anyone there with him now? No, ma'am. They won't be back to the house. They didn't want to try to give CPR or anything on him. No, ma'am. Well, this is name your grandson. John Robert Wales. He was 17 years of age, just 91, ma'am. I've got an ambulance and a big equity on the way. So you can just stay on the phone to sleep. He said there's nobody with him now. You want to go out there and wait. What type of place explore? Okay. So the ambulance is there. Yes, ma'am. All right, I'll let you go so you can stick with him, okay? Thanks. Thank you, mom. It took emergency responders several minutes to coordinate their response. It's gonna be in reference to a child that had been missing since 1330 this afternoon. They just found him underwater in the ditch near the house. Days before this call came in, heavy rains had come through the area, so the pasture and specifically were pat said John was, was mushy and soft. The ambulance couldn't even make it back there, so EMTs had to load their gear into trucks owned by the sheriff's office to make the three quarters of a mile trek into the dense area. Cancel..

"To help give you a frame of reference for where John wells story takes place. I'll start by telling you about where he was from. The town of Arcadia, Florida. Now Arcadia is a unique slice of South Florida that feels like it stopped developing somewhere in the late 1990s. The town has old service stations turned into vape shops, outdated strip malls with scattered vacant units, a few renovated fast food restaurants, and a lot of mom and pop shops that advertise food with all the fixins. A message that makes you feel like you should avoid stopping in, but once you do, you find yourself impressed and leaving with a smile. And a much higher cholesterol level. The biggest landmark in town is the local Walmart, which just recently got a fresh coat of paint, and I have to say, really looks nice. That store is the hub of the town, with a family owned butcher shop coming in at a close second. There's a cute little downtown with railroad tracks that separate what was from what is. And clustered all together in the middle of that area, are the municipal buildings, one would expect to see in a small town. The public library, the courthouse, the DMV, the sheriff's office, and of course, the Chamber of Commerce. In one sense, if you blink, you could blow right past Arcadia. There's nothing special about it, at least not to the visiting eye. It sits an hour east inland from the Gulf of Mexico, and about two hours west of beaches in west palm and Jupiter. It's predominantly rural farmland, orange groves, and swamp. Highway 70 is the major road that cuts through it, going east to west. Winding north and south is state road 17, and if you follow that up for two extremely boring hours, you'll find yourself at the happiest place on earth. Disney World. I was vaguely familiar with Arcadia back when I was a news reporter in Southwest Florida. Every now and then something would happen in the town that my Fort Myers based news station deemed newsworthy enough to send me or a colleague to. Arcadia wasn't our target viewership area. So whatever news broke there had to be good. Otherwise, we'd let the Sarasota and Tampa stations handle it. Usually the stories that required my station make a trip involved crime. But more along the lines of a major drunk driving chase turned fatal accident, a drug bust, or in the rare case, a murder, and when I say rare, I really do mean rare. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one murder from recent years that the news media keyed in on for more than a 24 hour news cycle. Back in 2021, a beloved food Mart owner was shot and killed in his store by a guy from outside the area who wanted to rob him. This story, though, extremely sad, boiled down to a totally random crime. Other than that, unsolved murders or even suspicious deaths are just not what you hear about coming from Arcadia. At least not in the last decade. 19 years ago, though, one bizarre death did make big news in the town. John wells in July 2003, 17 year old John and his older brother Matt were not living with either of their parents. Helen Hough and Mack wells. The couple had ended their marriage in a bitter divorce in 1987, one year after John was born. During the late 90s, the boys went back and forth between their mom Helen's house in Fort Myers, and their grandmother Patricia strader's house on a rural piece of property in Arcadia. The drive between those two places is about an hour each way. Mac, their dad was out of the picture for most of the boys lives, despite Mac living full-time in Arcadia. By the year 2001, Helen's relationship with her mom Patricia, who everyone calls pat, had deteriorated, and was for lack of a better word, irreparable. After a series of ugly courtrooms showdowns written in verbal confrontations and mountains of legal paperwork that dragged on for years, pat was awarded full custody of John by the spring of 2003. Matt was 21 by that point, so he could make his own decisions. John, on the other hand, turned 17 on May 1st, 2003. He had just one more year until he could be independent. While he waited that out, he lived with his grandma pat at her home near the end of southeast hansel avenue. The property consists of an old, small, one story farmhouse surrounded by dozens of acres of cow pasture and Woods that butt up to a body of water known as Joshua creek. Half of the acreage is on one side of southeast hansel avenue, where the house sits, and the rest sprawls across the street and is filled with thick oak trees, saw grass palmettos and Spanish moss. The homestead is where John's mother Helen grew up before her falling out with pad. The House in the 20 acres was originally bought in like 1960, one ish, and we moved out there, lived in a mobile home and in the house was being built. That's Helen, who I first met last summer. Hey, nice to meet you. What was supposed to be our first interview to talk about her youngest son, turned into an hours long conversation at a public library where we were shushed a lot by staff. We've talked several times since and I've learned probably more than I needed to know about the huff and wells tumultuous family history. The backstory goes back to probably 1987 when the father and I started getting divorced and all this sort of stuff and pat who is my mother, but I don't really call her that. So pat jumps in and she tries to get custody and it's just a nightmare back and forth, little, you know, me and Mack had trouble, but you know, she's jumping into and he was back and forth up there all the time. So it was Matt, the older brother. In case it doesn't become glaringly obvious, Helen did not like the fact that John lived in Arcadia with pat. You know, I tried to talk to John and say, look, I grew up with her. She's giving you everything you want right now. I said, but when that dotted line gets signed, I said she's gonna be the mamai nu. And he just wouldn't hear of it. But legally, Helen had no custody of her son. That was the reality of the situation, like it or not. The tense family dynamics took their toll on John, according to his aunt Laura wells. She says, between Mac and Helen's divorce and Patton Helen's battle for the boys, John felt torn as.

"Four is to explain how the name John wells came across my radar. I was with some family friends writing a dirt bike deep in the Woods of Arcadia, Florida. After we got done whipping through the mud and mosquitos behind their farm, we sat down to eat dinner. And that's when one of them casually mentioned that I should look into a weird death that happened on a creek near their property back in 2003, several years before they even built their home. This kind of suggestion is one I get often. A lot of people mention in passing that I should investigate this death or that death because of what I do for a living. I usually say something like, thanks, I'll look into it, or sounds interesting. Anyone you know willing to talk? And that's where the proposal usually fades into other conversations. But this particular night, with this particular suggestion, it was different. John wells was different. The biggest detail that piqued my curiosity about his case was the fact that he was only 17 years old when he died. What was also intriguing to me was the fact that he was found on his own family's property. All alone, face down in a creek, just like the ones I'd been riding a dirt bike through a few hours earlier. After I left our Friends, I immediately Googled the name John wells, and nothing came up, which I thought was kind of strange. It was like he'd been totally forgotten, despite suffering what was described to me as a terrible death. Now, for most people, not finding anything in an online search means maybe there's just nothing there. But not for an investigative reporter like me. I knew that meant John's story more than likely had gone completely untold, and there was probably a lot more information that I knew I needed to find out. So, there you have it. The origin of season four's case. If there's one thing I can tell you, I know now that I didn't know a year ago, it's that the story of John wells is like peering into a kaleidoscope. Every time you look at it and train your focus on what you feel confident is the truth, it changes. The people, the circumstances, everything and everyone involved in this case has a strange way of shifting on you, like the silty soggy bottom of a Florida wetland. There's nothing you can solidly stand on that makes you feel confident. But here's the thing. That's why I'm here. I wasn't prepared for what I was walking into when I first heard the name John wells. I didn't have the luxury of bracing myself, but you do. So, buckle up for the twists and turns that are coming. Audio chuck is releasing season four, just like we did season three as a binge. Because it's vitally important that you listen to this story, all 15 episodes in order all at once right now.

You can contact your child's healthcare provider or tribal health department to schedule their vaccine appointment today. Support for this program is provided by the Johns Hopkins center for American Indian health. You're listening to native America calling and I'm your host alysa London. When we're talking about basketball today, specifically about high school basketball in the southeast Alaskan town of metlakatla. It's a setting for a documentary film, Alaska nets. Now before the break, we were speaking with melody, lease, and her daughter, Naomi lisk from met la catla, Alaska. They were sharing with us about how much basketball brings the community together and how some she and values are infused in just the way that the community comes together around basketball and how important it is to everybody. And now the filmmaker behind Alaska nets is the individual I want to bring into our conversation now. He's joining us from bend Oregon and his name is Jeff harissa which he's the director and producer of the film Alaska nets. Welcome to name America calling Jeff. Thanks so much. It's great to be here. Thank you. Well, from what I've heard so far is that the community was very happy with how you put together the film with your team. You must be very proud. Yes, very proud, but definitely by far the most kind of nerve wracking part of the process was kind of earning their trust and truly earning it not just taking it but it really earning it working with them and then yes, I think the most scared that probably ever been in my life was showing them the movie after working on it for four years and then really hoping they'd like it. I bet and now that you have shown it to them and had time to reflect on the journey of creating the film, what are some of the things you're specifically most proud about that you'd want people to focus on if they watch your film? I think the thing I'm most proud about is just how the community has seen to respond to it. I think it was really important to tell their story honestly and sincerely and that was the highs and the lows. And I honestly didn't really know that the depth of the story that I was walking into. I was thinking basketball, it's going to be a sports story, but it really became much more of a human story. And again, that comes with some really high highs and some very low lows. And I don't think I was fully prepared for that spectrum of emotion. So being able to capture that capture that authentically and capture that in a way that the community seemed to be really proud of. That was the thing that makes me kind of the happiest in the whole process. So I certainly hope that when people watch the film, they feel that the passion and the community has for their sport for their community for their tradition. And then yeah, hopefully it inspires anyone who watches it in a time where I think all of us could use a little inspiration. Love that. Now reflecting back to how this all started, what caused you to come across the community of met like Hitler and the basketball culture that is so prevalent there. Yeah, actually I stumbled across a photo essay about metal catlin. It's kind of just floored by it. The fact that I had no idea that there was only kind of one native reserve in Alaska. I thought there were many, and I of course know there are many native communities, but it was kind of surprised that there was only one native reserve. It was also surprised that the kids were you kids in high school or commercial fishermen. And that starts at a very early age. That was surprising to me. And then kind of a third part of that is the fact that basketball of all sports is so popular in Alaska was equally a surprising. I think so many people from down south myself included guilty as charged, you think of Alaska, you think of all the stereotypes of Eskimo as igloo sled dogs and wallets course that does exist. You know there's an entirely different world up there in basketball is so ingrained not only in metallic caliber throughout the state. So when I came across a story, I was fascinated by it and TJ coach Scott happened to be documented in kind of that photo essay and so I got his contact information and the sentiment email just told calling asking if anyone had told the story before. And I think when I actually emailed him, he was in the process of losing the state championship of the year prior to our documenting them, so I don't think he was in the best of mood, but ultimately he got back to me, invited me up to mello cattle and that kind of began the journey of meeting the community getting introduced to the story and ultimately decided to kind of go on this journey with them. What are some of the things that you learned about filmmaking or community based filmmaking that you would like other filmmakers to know and bring into their own projects? I just get all really just revolves around sincerity. I mean, I know myself, I know what I was hoping to bring to the project. I think honestly, when I walked into the community, my intention was to kind of be a fly on the wall and be very removed from the process at least the emotional part of it. I just wanted to document kind of hands off, but once I got to my lookout, I realized that approach probably wouldn't work. I think in part because of this who I am as a person, but definitely because of who they are as a community. They're not the kind of people who will keep you at arm's length if they like you. If they like you, you're going to get pulled in very quickly. And I think everyone you'll hear on today's call has invited me over for meals at their house. And I probably had multiple meals that everyone's house here and many other community members too. So I think trust is a huge thing, earning that trust maintaining that trust and just realizing that it is about relationships. These aren't just people your photographing and running away from. These are people who you are documenting and showing the best part of their lives in a time. So the worst part of their lives and it really does require a level of trust and sincerity that you can't fake. And so I think if you have a good heart, so I'm making might be for you, but you really got to kind of open yourself up to everything that could happen and just be prepared to go on the journey wherever it takes you. Thank you. We also have on the call today joining us from Alaska, TJ Scott. He is a high school math health and PE teacher and coach for the Met like how high school chiefs boys basketball team. Welcome to Native American calling coach Scott. Thank you. Excited to be here. Thank you for being here. So Jeff said that he reached out and just wanted to see if he could tell the story of your team. What was that first conversation like? Well, well it was unnerving. Because you have to think about the process and then how you're going to be portrayed in a film that's obviously going to be seen by a lot of people. And so that's a little scary. And you know, especially myself, I think about as a coach, I build relationship with the kids. I love the kids to death as you see in the movie. But I'm also very intense at times. And you just, you know, you do worry about the one thing that you might say that might not. You might not go over really well. So that was a big, you know, a big thought process that went into it and obviously talking to my wife and well, fiance at the time, but life now and just seeing what she thought of the process and she kind of put whatever you think his best behind it. And so then I had a conversation a good conversation with Jeff. And then I got to meet him. And at that point in time, I just felt like he was in it for the right reasons and it was worth taking a shot. What.

"This is national native news, I'm Antonia Gonzalez. In November, akiha Alaska made history as the first community in the YK delta to install broadband Internet in every home. The rollout has not been smooth, but for many in the community, high-speed Internet is a big deal. Reporter Greg Kim shared some of the excitement as work to provide service started. Back yet resident Lina foss salvaged a broken dryer from the village's dump. She couldn't figure out how to fix it. First thing I did was you two powder replace a belt, but the Internet was so slow and I thought it was wasting kick up bites, so I turned that up before I completely finished how to fix that drier. Located in remote western Alaska, aka lax high-speed Internet. Internet speeds will more than double and costs will become a fraction of what they are now. The main reason for these advances is because of COVID according to Blair Levin, a broadband expert at the brookings institution. It really focused the mind of everyone, Democrats, Republicans, governors, senators, on the importance of getting broadband everywhere and making sure that everybody could afford to get on. Since the pandemic hit, the federal government made billions of dollars available to expand broadband, a good chunk went to rural tribal lands, some of the least connected areas in the country. But money was only a piece of the puzzle for acq. The tribe is also relying on satellite technology that just became available this year in Alaska. These satellites can deliver high-speed Internet to rural areas that cables can't reach. Foss says she'll use the Internet to finish fixing her dryer and anything else in akiha that's broken. Of this broken stuff would probably be fixed by you to I would probably start a small business calling it you to fix it all. Foss says the Internet is going to open her eyes, reporting for national native news in akiha. I'm Greg Kim. This fall near Eugene Oregon more than a dozen Native American firefighter trainees carried out a prescribed burn, a deliberate and controlled fire often called a cultural burn by native people as it follows methods practiced by their ancestors. As KLCC Brian bull reports, the practice is gaining attention. On the Andrew reasoner wildlife preserve, cruzi is drip tortures to ignite 8 acres worth of brush as water engines stand at the ready. Plenty of century firefighting by federal and state agencies focused on a media wildfire suppression, not setting fires to reduce slash and vegetation. But early natives set these good fires to prevent larger ones, and to rejuvenate certain plants. For instance, the women that used to pick the huckleberries, which we call E one, they would burn, you know, every four years into the huckleberry stands to bring back more. You want. Derek Kimball is a high enough MODOK tribal member with a nonprofit called muc Lux cochin, meaning a place of the people. He brought several youth along to share indigenous fire practices, which were suppressed for generations after a colonization. So with the loss of the knowledge through history, that's played a big part in what we're seeing today with the devastation of the mega fires and the dying of the forest. After more than a century of wildfire suppression, many incidents have been catastrophic in size and intensity. Accumulated slash and vegetation combined with a hotter and drier climate have sparked monstrous fires, including this year's Dixie fire in California. But more and more forestry agencies are exploring controlled burns as a way to limit the size and spread of future wildfires. For national.

"You know rains a lot more there. Yeah i mean it's a very different climate than the west with more rain. It is a bit simpler to do burning in the southeast. Because you don't have that super dry vegetation but most of the burning in the south takes place in the spring which is also a good time in western seats because that's when it's cooler and wetter so the difference isn't as big as you might think. Lauren an actually big difference. Is this thing about who owns the land right. You said earlier that a lot of the land out west is publicly owned versus the southeast which is mostly privately owned right and i think it would be harder to get a bunch of private landowners to all agree to burns right. Yeah i mean it would seem that way but you know as you talked about and morgan told me the key thing in the southeast is that burning has become part of the social fabric landowners. There encourage each other to do it. There's a little bit of one upsmanship or one one ship where they will talk about sort of like. Have you been burned your property lately. You know that sort of thing that actually sounds exactly right to me especially in tallahassee. Caring for your land is taken very seriously. I mean that's the model just given everything that's happening in the west. That western states are actually starting to copy. We have this generational gap in fire. Knowledge in in the western. Us that we're trying to rebuild now but florida and the southeast still have it. So that's yet quinn davidson. She's a fire adviser for the university of california cooperative extension. So far this year florida has done controlled burns on forty five times more land than california. How forty five. Yeah but unlike florida in california lena's has private landowners get little support. You know even though they are managing and in taking care of the lands around our towns and communities they're critical in this in this larger vision of california living with fire. Why is that. Why is there less support for private landowners out in california. We'll lamie says one. Big problem in california is liability. It's rare for a prescribed. Burn to get out of control and destroy homes. It has happened and in the southeast burn. Bosses are protected from liability lawsuits unless they're grossly negligent. When i go out and burn. I have no liability protection. I'm i'm assuming full responsibility for those projects. And most of the time we're doing those projects for public benefit that is changing though california state. Legislators are considering a bill right. Now that would provide some liability protection oregon and new mexico passed similar laws this year and that policy in california should also help the native american tribes who really want to restore their cultural practice of burning. And they're really leading on this effort. an all. Three of those states are also setting up certification programs to get more burn bosses on the ground. That's how we're going to rebuild a fire culture in california's letting people actually touch it and have a hands on connection with it and to know that it doesn't all have to be bad. Fires released scary in some cases but a lot of cases. It's it's beautiful. And there's an art to it and and we need that and on the federal level. Several democratic senators are hoping to help states with similar funding from the national prescribed. Fire act of twenty twenty one which would provide three hundred million for federal agency burns. This is all really exciting to hear. I mean it seems like there's a lot of energy around changing the culture out west but if we do prescribed fire used a lot more often. How much of a difference can it actually make. Yeah i mean it's not going to solve this on its own right. There's no simple answer here. We're talking about tens of millions of acres that need addressing in the west so most experts say it's just going to be a mix you know if you're in a really remote area it's hard to do prescribe fire so they may need to let more naturally cause fires burn you know if they don't threaten communities and then there's a need to this work around towns and cities to help protect them. Homeowners need to clear vegetation in their yards or replace their would roof and make their homes. More fire-resistant you know. None of those things alone is going to stop the fires that have been consuming entire towns but the hope is that all together.

Yeah there are dozens of active fires across ten states in the us right now. More than two and a half million acres of burned and tens of thousands of people have been evacuated just last week. The us force service closed all the national forests in california to help prevent more fires from starting. These fires are really extreme. They burned hot. They move fast and the firefighting forces are just over extended and thout enough firefighting personnel. Federal officials have had to stop using a key tool to help.

You've been talking with some of my towns people out in tallahassee florida to catch a glimpse of effective fire prevention policies in action. What does that look like. Yeah back in. May i talked to morgan varner. He's the director of fire research for tall timbers. Which is a research station and land conservancy out in tallahassee. I know us and he walked me through a prescribed burn. That was happening. We're burning in a shortly. Pine woodland burned about two years ago. So the flames are spreading along the forest floor. Burning the brush and grasp but don't reach up into the treetops and kill. The trees hazard is very low. The risk is very low. Yeah you know growing up in the area. These planned fires were very normal to me. Especially because my friend's dad actually worked at tall timbers doing prescribed burns so wow yeah so. I had no idea that a lot of the country doesn't do this. Yeah i mean if you just look at the acres that have been burned at the southeast is way ahead. The southeast burns about almost three quarters of all the prescribed burning in the us annually florida's far and away the number one state that. Here's the thing morgan says. Forests and woodlands in the west and south have a lot in common in both areas. Fires used to happen regularly before colonization they were burned really frequently through lightning and the really high density of native american populations native american tribes used to use fire regularly to cultivate the land for food and for game until white settlers came along. And if you want to hear more about cultural burning definitely check out the episode. We did with lauren earlier. It'll be in our episode notes. Ooh thanks for the shout. Worst so cultural burning is ended tribes or moved off their land their stopped from burning and then came an era of fire suppression policies that began in the early nineteen hundreds so you had federal agencies like the forest service that had mandates to extinguish all fires and there was smokey bear right that taught generations. That fire was the enemy. Oh right i remember these ads. Well so i guess my question. Lauren is how the south got out of the mindset of fire suppression especially given these national campaigns. Yeah kind of by the nineteen sixties and beyond lane managers. Were realizing that. Many landscapes had become choked with brush and grasses and small trees and in the southeast the majority of the land is privately owned and some residents head continued controlled burning and they wanted to see the practice grow so in one thousand nine. Ninety florida passed a law to encourage prescribe burned. It set up a certification training program for burn managers which are also called burn bosses. Incredible name yeah and you know as long as the weather. Conditions are good Getting a burn permit is pretty quick. So it's a single permit a single and you know in california or some other places. The the approval for a fire starts not minutes but months ahead of time. So there's lots more hoops to jump through. Yeah and learn. I'm really interested in what you just said about. As long as conditions are good isn't part of the reason controlled burns or easier in the south just because it.

"Southeast Asia in the east Asia where basically you're talking about, uh, thing that comes in a glass. There is a liquid to drink, usually as part of it or ice, but lots of little Chewy, crispy, chunky, soft, gooey putting any bits? Yeah, in Wonderland. Yeah, Textural Wonderland could come in a ball doesn't have to be In a cup. Oh, yeah, Yeah. Yeah. Okay, So let's talk about the three that you featured in your story, Uh, one comes from Vietnam. One comes from various places in South Asia and one comes from Indonesia. Correct. And let's start with the I still there. Okay, just the Indonesian version. I swear, man, I wish this was something I had growing up. It looks it looks so colorful and really fine. Um There's so many desserts out in the world are just dishes in the world where so many people claim to have invented it, Uh, but it's one of those things that you know. It was either invented. Maybe in the sixties, maybe in the 19 eighties. There's a lot of folklore surrounding it. But the idea is that Taylor is like a sling phrase and Javanese that means getting high. And apparently, someone like ate this dish and like Said. The ice is getting me high and like, basically that translated to like ice to lair. Um, that's so you know, the supposed origin story of this desert. So Lar Lee, who is the cookbook author behind Coconut Ensemble, one of my favorite cookbooks. Um, let's come out in the last couple of years, like developed this recipe for us, Um and what she told me is that Isolated always has, like six key ingredients like that's what makes it I still there, so there's always like cold shards of ice. There's avocado, You know, I think a lot of Americans get surprise or like or put off with avocado or kind of more savory items in desserts, But they're actually really common in a lot of these iced Asian textural concoctions. Um, and then, so there's avocado. They're just creamy. Exactly. It was a lot of tropical flavors. India's so I actually think Avocado makes a lot of sense, like, um, Ice teller also has jackfruit has young coconut me and like those flavors to me make a lot of sense with avocado, Um, was also cocoa pandan syrup, which I don't know if you know if you haven't had it yet. It's sort of coconut, even illa E. I think it's hard to nail down the flavor of pond on sometimes, but I like it's like an Asian vanilla to me. Um, and there's condensed milk, which I think is very common in a lot of these. You know, just a lot of the dishes have cannot smoke, which I feel like it's very underutilized in American desserts. Um, and then you can put other things on there, you know. For pop in color. You could put like basil seeds that have been soaked for some crunch to put like colorful tapioca, which is what you know she likes to put. There's squares of Nata de Coco, which is like a coconut gel, basically, coconut jelly. Um, for you know something a little slippery these, you know an added texture. I know it's a lot of fun. You can't go wrong. And it's like basically a a mixture of these things with the crushed ice. Yeah, right and you scoop it up with a spoon, and you're like crushing through the cold, crushed ice, And then you get this little like pop up like a little coconut jelly. And then you get another bite that has like that coconut pandan syrup that's like vanilla and coconut e. And Yeah, and then he was like a chunk of avocado. That's a little more bland and mellow. Exactly. No bite is sort of the same. That's sort of the magic of it. You know, it's not quite a drink. It's not quite a soup. It's not quite a dessert could kind of be lunch if you wanted it to be. You know, it is whatever you make it really Wonka. Yeah, exactly. But you know, if when you're living in a place that's constantly hot, I feel like That's exactly how you know you want to nourish yourself. I used to, like frozen fruit jelly thing. Your body? Yeah, Exactly. Okay, let's go to the Vietnamese version. She who bark? Yeah. This one's really cool. Um, so, Doris Cocaine. Um, who is of Bombay in? Uh, It's a Vietnamese American bakery pop up situation right now, which is think has a permanent space that's opening soon. Um she's a Vietnamese American baker and pastry chef and super talented and this one is very cool. So the original version of it is all white, actually, like every element is white, so it's like an almond panna cotta. Um, condense milk. It translates to white Chunk Dessert soup, According to Doris, which is like it loses something in the translation goes. It doesn't sound quite as beautiful in English as it doesn't Vietnamese, which I think is unfair, but she actually likes to add pops of color to it. Um, and usually the panna cotta is made with gelatin, but she likes to make it with anger. Agger. Just so that it's you know, more friendly to every kind of diet because a lot of vegetarians etcetera, you know, don't eat gelatin. She also likes the texture better so she basically Kobach chaise Vietnam years. Term for kind of these, like dessert soup type stuff, So there's like several types of Che in Vietnamese cuisine, and this just happens to be one of her favorite ones. So there's you know, the almond panna cotta. There's like piles of coconut cream, shaved ice pieces of like leech. E like soaked basil seeds. Um, and she likes to die. The panna cotta actually with beet juice, butterfly, pea flour and coffee. Um, to kind of give it a lot of contrast and flavor. Yeah, it's super beautiful. Um, she likes to drizzles and condensed milk on at the end. Um, and then also, what's really cool is like in the Vietnamese kitchen. There's a wavy knife that's really common. It has like wavy edges. And so she uses that to cut the panna cotta, which gives it a really cool like textural edge. Quigley noodle kind of lasagna noodle kind of edge. Yeah, and I feel like those ridges are probably really great for Helping to kind of soak up like the condensed smoke or, like, you know, bring the basil seeds along with it, Um, in the bite. Yeah, I really This one is really fun. Texturally. Cool. Love it. Okay. Now let's move to Fallujah, which I notice in your story. You didn't quote anyone and this one. So is your Fallujah suey generous. Yes, I do. Occasionally recipe develop for the magazine. So I grew up eating a lot of Fallujah. Um, as someone who is Indian American. So flew the so popular throughout. You know, all parts of South Asia. I don't think just India can claim it. It's really popular in Pakistan, you can find it in Bangladesh like Kind of, you know, throughout the Indian subcontinent. Um, and so it actually comes to India and the you know, South Asian subcontinent from Persia from Iran. Like so there's a Persian dish called holiday. That's a very common desert there, and that is more just like the vermicelli noodles. Some rose water scoop of ice cream. Maybe a dusty of pistachio. So this one of all the desserts does involve some ice cream. But ice cream is not the center focal point of it. Um And so the mogul empire you know, when they came and took over India in the area, they brought a lot of the dishes with them. You'll see a lot of mogul influence throughout Indian cuisine, especially when you look at north Indian food. Um, so follow day evolved into Fallujah, which is in India, You know, like this kind of crazy, layered concoction, everyone layers it a different way. I kind of prefer to like, Put the seeds at the bottom. So you can bloom either, like Chia seeds or basil seeds, which give you like a really nice crunch, And then you put in vermicelli. Which, you know, I know. People are surprised to see noodles in Indian cuisine sometimes, never me. I'm never surprised by noodles. Um And, uh, you know, And then there's rosewater, Rosa syrup and milk like Rose. Milk is kind of like a real central element to this..

"Welcome to jenny hoops today. We're joined by southeast division expert. Spencer frank hubert down past week of nba action for the hawks. Heat hornets magic and wizards spencer. What do you see from the hawks over the last week. That thing that sticks out to me the most about the hawks right now is the under hunters. Continued high level of play He's the hawk. Second leading scorer behind trae young and he scorned the ball extremely efficient if you look at his stats. Last year is at a ten percent increase in field. Goal percentage watching him throughout the week. I really noticed. Just how versatile of a player he isn't how tough to guard he is due to size I've noticed the hawks have been playing them at the block a little bit when he has a smaller defender on them Posted them up a little bit and just using his size year. Nobody outside of trae average double digits on the perimeter so that's a huge boost with deandre hundred adding that this year and i really think. He's an extremely important piece for the hawks playoff bush. He did leave. Friday's win against the wizards with a knee injury towards the beginning of the game but As of now it's nothing serious as for trae young couple of weeks back. I talk out his scoring slum. He did start to heat back up last week and he continues that this week he shot the three at forty nine percent this week scoring the ball extremely well while also being top tennessee guy in the nba. What's exciting to you. The most about the place so far. I really like how. Well the hawks big men are meshing. The hawks finished at the twenty eighth spot in defense in the league. And this year the top ten in defensive rating and also top three and rebounding and those two big men are the anchor for those those rankings with this era basketball. See a lot of teams trying to go. Small and the hawks are the exact opposite. They're trying to figure out ways to make their big man lineup work while having these to the same time It's it is unique in this era basketball. But i think it's great defensively for the hawks especially in the pick and roll when teams try to pull cling cappella out of the paint and have their big set. Set a screen John collins just right there to clean anything up so they've really packed the paint and tried to avoid damage inside. Sounds like everything's coming together for them. Spans what is the hunt for the playoffs. Look like yeah. This is a team that hasn't made the playoffs in the past three seasons but they currently hold a spot in the east. It is still early in the season but the hawks. There's the surprise team for this year. Moving onto the heat. What's going on with them. And they're fluctuating. Roster as a result of covid nineteen safety protocols. He were finally able to snap a five game losing streak with a win against the kings to end the week. They're starting to get towards a healthy roster that forum that we saw last year. Jimmy butler finally made his return on saturday in his first game. Since january ninety missed the last ten games it was great to see him back out on the floor and he needed looks all twenty points in the first half seven rebounds and eight assists this week tyler here was also able to return for the heat in thursday's Four point loss to the clippers and he added team. I've a nineteen points but shop poorly..
