"A 10 Year study is shedding some light into white orchids in our region of dying. The primary reasons are human caused, ranging from boats to toxins in the water and lack of salmon in their diet. Marine mammal scientists, Joseph Goydos took part in the study that involved necropsies in more than on more than 50 orchids. We see animals that have fishing interaction, meaning they've either taking a fish off the line or captured a fish that had a hook in it, And then that hook actually caused them to die. And researchers say there are things you can do to help like joining an organization to help plant trees to keep the salmon habitat thriving. And if you have a boat, they suggest you keep it as far away from the whales as possible. 20 year Long University of Washington study concludes. Early Encounters with police officers have a greater impact on young black school kids compared to their white counterparts. The research began in 2001 and has continued over the years it looked at similar criminal activity committed by both young black students and young white students in Seattle public schools. According to the now published research when young black people have a brush with police during childhood, their risk of being arrested as adults increases. But the researchers say the same level of contact between police and white kids does not increase their risk of arrest.

Millennials heat up Seattle housing market
"We've all had a lot more time to assess our living situation since the pandemic and it seems a lot of people are making the move to homeownership but that doesn't mean it's gotten more affordable. In fact, Seattle's real estate market is hotter than ever. We've got the fastest rising house prices of any city in the country after Phoenix prices here jumped seven percent in July since last year despite the pandemic Catherine Shema belong is a real estate reporter at the Seattle Times she's here to explain hi Catherine. Hi Trish. Thanks for having me. It's good to talk to you again. The heat in the real estate market here is surprising to me given what I keep hearing about the economy were you surprised Oh Yeah I was floored I think it's counterintuitive to a lot of people as hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians. Lose their jobs that home prices would continue to go up. Yeah and where is the growth the market coming from this time around? What are people doing here? Well. That's another thing that's really surprising A lot of the growth is coming from first time homebuyers specifically millennials people who aren't normally interested in buying homes but we're in this sort of perfect storm where it's cheaper than it's ever been to own a house because mortgage rates are historically low that's incentivizing a lot of people who might not normally have started their house search to get on the market. It's also incentivizing people who already own homes who might have sold them to hold onto them to refinance to take some cash out of their homes maybe a to better weather what's coming in the pandemic? But inventories. So number of homes that are on the market is very low lower than it's been by some counts in two decades. Simultaneously Demand just keeps ticking up that is a formula for rising house prices right there high demand low inventory, but I want to break this down just a little bit because from what I understand about millennials right? They don't have a ton of money. They are first time homebuyers. About getting into a market where the median home price is around seven, hundred thousand dollars are the overextending themselves. Well, most growth that we're seeing it actually concentrated in the more affordable end of the market. So homes in the Seattle Center prices are going up, but they're more or less where they were about a year ago homes in places like Tacoma Lake Taps Auburn up north in snohomish county. That's where prices are really writing. We're seeing price growth in the double digits for homes that are less than four, hundred, sixty, thousand dollars. That's for the millennials are buying their homes and and that's really affecting affordability for a lot of people in the Seattle Area That's still an awful lot of money to break into a market I. Think if you live in the Seattle area, you just get used to seeing incredibly high housing costs. But again, when a millennial enters into an agreement to buy this large large purchase, are they banking at this point on a market that's going to continue to grow because I've been around long enough that I saw people get underwater really quickly when the market didn't pan out the. Way They thought it was going to a lot of experts that I've talked to think that Seattle's market is destined to keep growing maybe not at the scorching pace that we're seeing right now. But Seattle like San Francisco is afflicted with what we call the curse of the superstar city. There's so much wealth concentrated in industries like the Tech Industry for instance, and that really drives up housing prices that wealth those incomes they're out of set in some. With the cost of living for the rest of the people who live in the Seattle area. You also reported Catherine that people are leaving their apartments in troves. What's driving that? Things are driving that one. We've already talked about the low mortgage rates that's really pulling people out of their apartments but I talked to a couple a couple months ago who said they're both working from home and they said they were just getting sick and tired of stepping all over each other during the day. One of them's working in the bedroom. One of them's working in the living room and they were sharing a bell an apartment, and me just really wanted to see some green. They ended up moving to manage quality of life. They're getting a little more quality of life what about people though who can't get into the market right now? Is there an advantage to renting since so many people are leaving their apartments. There is an advantage to renting. We're seeing that rents in the Seattle area have dropped by nearly ten percent since the start of the pandemic, and that's not even counting the discounts that landlords property managers are offering attendance. Some of them are offering as much as two months free rent. Those are big savings right now. So if you can find an apartment, Dow was a good time to sign a lease, but there are some real. Losers from the current growth even a mortgage rates are lower than they've been any time ever. The ability of people to get a mortgage has become more constricted ben anytime in the past six years, we look at something called the mortgage credit availability index, and that's lower than it has been since March twenty fourteen. What that means is that it's harder for people who don't have corporate credit to get a mortgage and we know that. Black Americans Americans of color are disproportionately likely to have lower credit scores than their white counterparts. What that means is harder for black. Americans. To afford a home now and West before the pandemic right banks are much less willing to give money away at this point to people who don't have perfect credit, which really really leaves a lot of people especially in the Seattle area where it is really hard to live out in the cold. Here do you think that there is a tipping point for the Seattle market where home affordability just becomes too much and people end up like just packing up for the suburbs or for a different state because like I said, we see these housing prices in this area and I look in other parts of the country and I think oh my gosh you know I could do a lot better for myself. I think the answer is yes. Then, it started I realized that I could afford to rent a larger home outside of the city packed up and moved in our north. I think that the pandemic is giving a lot of people the chance to reassess whether living that being said I don't necessarily see price growth slowing down appreciably in Seattle in the near future. We just have so many people with so much wealth in the city and the wealth and poverty gap here are just getting wider. It's becoming more and more obvious that the line between making it and. Not Making it is pretty thin here. What about people who aren't rocking a tech salary in this city? What is the other side of the picture for them? The other side of the picture is getting forced out of neighborhoods they've lived in for a long time because they can't afford riding property taxes and moving out into south King County, Pierce County, snohomish county, or even further outside of the Seattle area. The last time we talked you were downtown in billtown looking out at a pretty empty city Catherine where are you living these days? These days I'm I'm way up north I'm actually Skagit County. Where I can have a house with a yard and a new puppy. So you are an example of what's going on in the city. You're not just a reporter live the life. That's right. I know it's happening because I live it. Catherine Shema belong excellent to talk to you. Thanks so much for your time. Thank you, Victor.

Orca who carried her dead calf for 1,000 miles is pregnant
"Pregnancies are good news for the southern resident killer whales and right now, it looks like there are three whales including j thirty five who could give birth. But there's a long way to go today. We're GONNA talk about the lives of these orcas and our complicated relationship with them here to do that with us is Linda makes she's the environment reporter at the Seattle Times Linda. Thanks for joining us. Thank you, Trish. So give us a quick recap on J. Thirty five for people who weren't here maybe when her calf died. So J thirty five or Takuma really is the ORCA whale who changed the conversation about this very small population of whales and very sadly trish as I talked to today that population is even smaller than it was two years ago when she gave birth to a female calf and it live for only one half hour, and then she did something that scientists know these animals do as well as other, very, highly intelligent. Socially, bonded animals they grieve and she just refused to let that baby go. Now, this calf is probably six feet. Long weighs about three hundred pounds, and for seventeen days, she just refused to let it go and she had to decide to retire. She went down for breath to pick it up once again and carry it some more, and it really did touch the hearts. People around the world and even though these southern resident orcas have been listed as dangerous since two thousand and five. Suddenly people really did understand for the first time, just how fragile they are, and the fact that these aren't just random black and white wildlife. These are families with very, very close bonds. And why do you think that we feel so attached to these orca because I grew up in the Eighties and Wales were such a big deal. You know every girl had little whale necklace and why do we feel so attached I'm gonNA, make a sound for you inherit comes. That is sound of a whale breathing. They are mammals like us, and that's sound when you hear it, it's like a sound from the beginning of the world. It's It's a magnificent presence to be with these whales and you and you understand as you observe their family bond says, you see the way they take care of one another. You know they're so superior to people they. They have brilliant diplomacy. They share space in the ocean without ever warring or committing any acts of aggression against one another. They've families together for life. It's really quite remarkable and they've been around don't forget this for six million years as a species. So these are in every way our elders and mentors for how to run a successful society and don't forget this. They were doing just fine until we showed up. How do we raise up the cause of the ORCA of the environment here without doing the thing that we tend to do a lot of as humans, which is just the help that hurts, how do we walk that line? Actually, this is easier than ever I mean, let's remember how we got to know these southern resident whales. Well, it was the capture era which by the way was not that long ago. Free, willy. Oh. Yeah. Anybody could go out and catch themselves a killer whale for an aquarium or for that matter, sell it for profit anouar in the world until as recently as are you ready Nineteen, seventy six. So wow, that's really recent. Recent and the only while who've had survived that time is still alive and she's still at the Miami Seaquarium and the fiftieth anniversary of her capture and Penn cove is on August seventh. Wow. This is recent time and ironically it was through seeing these so-called killer whales up close in captivity and realizing their incredible intelligence and they're gentle personalities that people went through a whole change in their understanding about these animals and today they're not only revered but protected and I said it's easier than ever to love these animals without loving them to death God look at what you can watch the documentary footage that's out there to enjoy these animals is so much. Better than anything that has ever been available. The amount of knowledge we have about them is superb growing by the day and you know you can watch them from shore. The idea that you need to spend the money by the way and get on a boat. Go after them. You know that's not the only way to enjoy these whales and I think that it's important to. Show some restraint and also some respect for their space. So. J thirty five is pregnant. Again, this is a good sign but two thirds of pregnancies in this population are lost. I learned this lesson with birds in my backyard last year in a nest so. This is not the time for a baby shower. We have a long way to go here. That's so well said. I would think about it. This way this time to hold space for these oils to hold them in your mind and think about what you can do to help whether it's something that might feel small but adds up such as be involved in local land use decisions in your community. That's where all this getting decided about how much of the puget sound lowlands we retain and how much we pay of over. You know these tedious things that we don't think matter like Oh, the king, county flood control district. Well, you know what they're up to. They're thinking about the future of the Green. River. which is upstream from the Duwamish, the green flows into the duwamish Seattle's only river. It's very important Salmon River for the whales and so things like paying attention to what's the local flood district doing what is going on in my local community? By Way of development? All of these things make a difference especially if all of us do. and. Read learn about these animals become informed. Educate Yourself. You know there are lots of ways to get involved and stay involved and play heart in whether. Tele. Calf actually. Does get born and does survive. To me, that's our work song as a region. May Her next calf with? So J thirty five. How will scientists track her pregnancy? Will very remotely fortunately. The scientists who do this work are John, Durbin? And Holly Fehrenbach, and they're they're a team of scientists who came up with a new method. using drones to photograph these Wales from at least one hundred, few of them and remote Louis activated. So they're far from the whales. So nowhere near them, the whales don't seem to show any notice of these drums when they're flying. And they take suspect hack your pictures, and there's something about the angle from above That's very different from a boat. You can see not only the shape of the whales. You can watch their behavior, their families. I. Make It takes your breath away and it is an entirely new view of the lives of these Wales and when it comes to keep track of j thirty five and the other pregnant whales. They're going to do is take another peek in September. DID THEY FATTEN UP? Did they pump up or are they going into winter in good shape? Are they look stressed or are they looking skinny? Most importantly with regard to her? Is She nice fat around? They'd like to see her a lot rounder in September than she is now for early in her pregnancy, these whales carry their babies, believe it or not for eighteen eighteen months Linda I read that and I thought. Oh. My Gosh Holy. Mackerel A. And actually then the real work starts because they've got to feed not only themselves, but they've got a lactate and that's a very, very high fat milk. So she's got her work cut out for her so they'll immature September and we will all cross our fingers that she's even bigger. And then you know she's either. Going to be carrying another kappa which time. I, don't know what I'll do. Or, we'll see her romping with a baby. You know We'll see what happens next I. do think that we ought to kind of hold our breath. A little bit chances are are high that things won't go well, but it doesn't mean that she couldn't surprise us and we might have some more good news. Let's remember there have been two berths to southern residents and let's remember Linda are bar for hope, is pretty low. Sleep. Vote through. Isn't it for the? Thought, I'd get a good peach these days and I'm just thrilled. Good Peach. Tomato. I'm good.

Based upon its reliability. Based upon its actuality. It's verifiability not based upon the gender of who's saying it or the race for that matter. There was a headline that got my attention yesterday. Actually and the Seattle times. And the headline is charges dismissed against ex police officer. You'll be pleased to know this has nothing to do with shooting an unarmed man it has nothing to do with race. It does have to do with the alleged war on women. Here's the sub-headline prosecutors accuser against the officer made false rape allegations against another officer. Here's a story. And it's written by a woman, Christine Claridge. She writes prosecutors have dismissed domestic violence assault and witness tampering charges against Bellevue. Police officer who was arrested back in July. And they've opted not to pursue rape charges against another Bellevue. Officer both incidents involved the same woman who by the way was an admitted lawyer. Both officers legal troubles stemmed from allegations made by equal woman is was a town to the east of Seattle. Who according to an investigation by the King County sheriff's office has a history of seeking out men on Craigslist. And then falsely reporting those consensual encounters as a crime. According to police she had made false rape accusations twice previously. So this is the third time and this is combined with domestic violence allegations. The investigation officers show that the accused officer dated the woman from September to April while both were married to other people. Well, that's not good. When the King County sheriff's office. Looked into the woman's domestic violence claims. A detective came across text messages suggesting she had been sexually assaulted by another police officer, according to the records, the sheriff side investigation identified another man accused by the woman who claimed that he had answered an advertisement on Craigslist posted by a female quote asking for someone to help make her fancy of being raped. Come true. According to two reports. So how do we know that this woman wasn't actually raped answer? Because she admitted that she lied. As a result of the investigation. The officer was released from custody in new charges were dismissed and dismissing charges. Prosecutors said that the alleged victim fabricated evidence and used a sophisticated. Ruse to deceive the officer law enforcement prosecutors and the court in order to have the officer taken into custody and charged with additional charges in any event. What you have here, and the story goes on it's horrible story. But this one woman has over the course of five years repeatedly made false charges of rape and of domestic abuse. Now, do I think that's typical do I think that most women who make those charges are making it up. No, I think most are telling the truth. But at least there should be a reminder that this I believe women. Yeah. A believe women when it's appropriate to believe them. As President Reagan said about nuclear war weapons trust. But verify. Let's go to your calls and to Christie in Columbus, Ohio. You're on the Michael Medved Show. Hi, michael. How are you? I'm well. I just have a comment about all these girls and women that are boohooing about how things are today. Because then they're all time for time. You know, all time frame in the seventies. I worked at a grocery store here on Columbus that I had to wear hose hard, shoe, hard, soles shoes. No, tennis, shoes and address and bagging groceries and working at that little cashier spot and address second of all what I graduated my senior year, we just got the privilege of wearing jeans, no phrase. No, hold no belly button showing. And if they thought that your dress was too short you. Want to the office and measured between a half an inch an inch off the ground. So it's worth Christie. It's worth recalling some of that. Because when I went to high school in the sixties. They had rules at girls were not permitted to wear pants to school, no jeans. No pants of any kind and the skirts had to be a certain length, and this is public high school. So yeah, we've people should put this in historical perspective quick word from relief factor.
