New York City congestion pricing tolls may start as late as 2023
"Pricing his stalled and I might not get a jump start for another two years. There's WCBS reporter Steve Burns. The M T A is scrambling for every dollar it confined right now, it was hoping to find quite a bit of money with congestion pricing charging drivers south of 60th Street in Manhattan. We get that new trains new bus is modern signals accessible stations but then freed with the advocacy group Transit Center, says the Trump administration never gave the needed sign offs. We think that Biden administration will be much friendlier to this program. So freed says it was a bit surprising to see the empty now project that the program may not get up and running. Until 2023, he says it's on Governor Cuomo to push harder for it. You need to see urgency. I think if we do see urgency from the governor, especially this could get moving much faster than a 2023 timetable. Cuomo still has yet to pick members of a review board tasked with setting up the rules around congestion pricing. The M T. A says in a statement. It's waiting on further guidance from the feds on the review process before getting a better idea of when the program can start.
Are buses an overlooked climate solution?
"Many cities running the bus can mean enduring a long trip and unexpected delays we have to do a better job because better transit and better buses are essential to solving inequality in our. Fronting the climate crisis. Stephen Higa Day is with a foundation called Transit Center. He says improving bus systems could encourage more people to use mass transit instead of cars and it would give non-drivers access to more jobs and opportunities. But decision makers often lack the political will to pursue upgrades like designated bus lanes and more frequent service bus riders are more often low income people, people of Color, young people, and for all those reasons they're discounted in the planning decisions. He gives she says, riders and Advocacy Groups, Organiz. They can push officials to prioritize buses and unlike hyperloop or self driving cars bus systems are here and now. So making them faster and more reliable could provide almost immediate benefits. We're going to give people more mobility and freedom, and we're going to confront the climate crisis and inequality all at the same time.

NGO brings visibility to millions of children out of school worldwide
"This is Matt Wells at UN news an estimated two hundred sixty million children not receiving an education and the crisis hampering their access to vital life skills and the jobs market leaders at the nonprofit their world have committed to closing the education gap the organizations bringing visibility to the scale of the global education crisis through through an immersive installation the infant classroom a mirrored room which highlights the huge number of unfilled seats in schools across the world sites it on the main. UN Plaza in New New York the installation serves as the centerpiece of their world's latest campaign Hashtag right the wrong aiming to gain the financial support and political momentum to help children achieve she therefore potential and Gio Partners Founder Sarah Brown and President Justin Vanfleet spoke to you and uses Nutley Hutchison onstage in the G. Media his own during the German assemblies high level week well so we set up the infinity room right outside the main doors to the headquarters because we wanted to capture people going past and just make sure that education was front and center this has been a UN week where how we protect our planet has been the start to the week and and now we're moving across to talk about people on that planet and truthfully. We're not going to find a way to save upon it. If we don't find a way to educate all our children to who need to know what they need need to do to play their part so the infinity rumors you walk into it is a mirrored space that when you sit at the the children the school desks there the mirrors create literally millions of empty desks representing the two hundred and sixty million childrens. You say who don't get the chance chance to go to school and there's some sound as well right. Do you want to tell people a little bit about this. Once you walk in there you can close the door. You can create your own photographs. Create your own film mm-hmm and the space will will do all the work for you but also you can hear the sound of a classroom and hear what the sound would be if we had all those children at school learning unexcited and planning futures to justify anything to add just building on that is what happens if we don't do anything about that today in right now and that's why we thought it was so important even when climate and other issues are front and center that I see even here at the boxes for educations at the bottom because it's the foundation that really helps achieve all those. SDG's and by having the box here front and center it reminds people have not just tuned sixty million out of school today but if we don't change change course immediately in two thousand thirty actually over eight hundred million over half of the world's young people won't have the skills that they'll need tend to the workforce we productive members of society so as a wakeup wakeup call to what's actually going to be happening in twenty thirty if we don't take action great so what is what is the global education crisis exactly and how do you bring visibility into this with all these other. SDG's that are competing this week especially so the crisis is simply that you have millions of children out of school but the crisis is also what that means for them as they grow up and as Justin said you face a future where within a very short period of time half of the world's young people will not have the skills to be ready to be able to enter employment or run their own business or engage in a job that Romo might be doing an unskilled job but there's going to be plenty of scope for people with skill jobs but they have to have that learning and we're creating a bigger and bigger gap as we have children who are able to go through the secondary school and onto higher education and leaving so many millions behind and the challenges also not just for those children who are in the poorest hardest to reach parts of the world world but also this children who are displaced and we have so many more children to address in a humanitarian context where as a refugee as asylum-seeker as as a child whose family can can move several times as they move. We have to be able to be flexible and provide opportunities for them so the comp the competition with the other goals is not a competition you know. I was talking to me Muhammad this morning and she said something very wise. She's she loves the progress of any single goal all from her point of view responsible for seventeen any progress on any single goal has a positive impact on others and education arguably has the greatest impact on how we cheese every right youth is certainly at the center of the conversation these days right yes absolutely Sarah. Would you share a about the founding of the organization. What sort of inspired fired you to pursue education at this level so I didn't set out to set up a charity that was focused on the global education crisis. When we first started the charity seventeen eighteen years ago it had a different name it was focused on community health and education projects and looking at the grassroots level but what's happened. Is We've grown. We've partnered with other initiatives. Initiatives been inclusive with the way that we work working with Justin. In a leadership role. There brings a lot of skills and expertise with his team where actually you are able to work right of that top. top-down level of looking at how we unlock the political will unlock the financing on adopt commitments to education that we scroll back ten fifteen years just weren't there and the journey to making education the priority was one where whatever health project we were doing something around nutrition or something environmental you can never reach your full goal when you'd dealing with children who don't get that chance to go to school and it was just something where myself and the other like-minded people realize that if we collaborated together we creative partnerships together as an organization we could do that and that's where their world was born but there will doesn't work on its own either you know we've got partnerships with other. NGOs always with UNICEF here with the meeting with them this morning and getting a lot of new commitments for education sharing our resources and I think all of us have to do that so their world is is there to collaborate and work with others because we need government civil society. We need businesses if together going to reach these goals great that's that's what I was going to ask him aside from the infinity classroom sort of what other involvement you had with the UN Jay this week in maybe more details about those partnerships so we here we have the Business Coalition for education that we established. It's been building private sector engagement with education so they've been hosting a big event. We've campaigned for many years at their world to be able to see the creation of the new financing facility big pledging today and education wait. That's within the unison family is they're. They're scooping up massive commitment this week for education emergency so we're having busy days every day of course and you both. I believe leave returned from a trip to Greece recently right where Russia around degrees yeah. Could you share by breaking. You told us it was it was it was one of those his trips where you realize the sheer scale the challenge in both of the global level but also what it means individuals where we were there on days we had record numbers. There's of young people arriving on boats from Turkey and these refugee reception centres that were already overcrowded three or four five times the capacity no supplies even for for a place to ten nothing and they're just waiting outside and you had all of these young people and most of them young people in these camps and we were able to do is as we partnered with education not wait and the players the Dutch postcode lottery and we said we have to do something we have to right the wrongs such an injustice of what was happening there and so collectively we invested into programs with UN agencies with UNICEF and unique CR and we're delivering five thousand school places right now because those young children we went. We saw that young people were able to take out of those camps go down the road of these centers and their eyes light up. They're taking out of these places and hope and opportunity everything's right in front of them and then you know the end of the day they you have to go back and so we have to solve that crisis of the refugees being there in those conditions but also this transit center they need some type of hope and opportunity so we're not making in a plan to double the capacity immediately when over eighty percent of them service in the next few months so they all have chance of education while there and so that's that's our big our big challenge ahead wonderful where where else has their world gone and made impacts so far what we've worked a lot with refugees because we campaigned very heavily to be able to get funding through the humanitarian sector. It's not that many is that change come about so we've had a lot of work with Syrian refugees. I'm British and so for for us to see in Europe refugees coming in was a big wakeup call in two thousand fifteen to sixteen to realize how close that that came to us coming in into the Greek islands but also something where we have a responsibility these people now our neighbors and to be able to engage. We've worked a lot so one of our biggest initiatives so it was the big breakthrough was making a proposal for the double shift school system and the WF school system is very simple solution to massive influx of people needing education and a the population like Lebanon or Turkey Jordan overwhelmed by how to cater to that need generously being prepared to do so and so if the school can start earlier in the day day you gotta first shift of children coming through and then halfway through move overtook double. The number of children can come through a school building in one day which means you don't have to to spend time working out where you're going to build buildings. You can get on with working how your teachers are going to be trained to cope different language instruction making sure there's children have the opportunity and and that's worked amazing. I mean just speak to the numbers more accurately than I did but we have hundreds of thousands if not millions of children who are now in school as a result of that system that's wonderful. That's not sit and I think that's the point is we're not an organization just to run programs on the ground because there are a lot of great partners that do that already and what we're really trying to do is find out where the blockage is where the gaps who's missing out. How do we provide immediate support but then also how do we create that change and unlock the bigger amounts of funding the bigger partnerships need to happen to really deliver sliver at scale exactly what you're saying. Lebanon with this proposal partnered with the government agencies and over three hundred thousand young people went back to school last year. There were refugees in Lebanon. That otherwise wouldn't have had that opportunity before we all work together on this. It was about ten thousand immediate impact that you can have if everybody works together really put her mind to these new innovative ways of doing work. That's that's wonderful. I'm staying on the good news. You mentioned there. Were new pledges that came out this morning. Justin I I was following some of your tweets there was incredible progress that came out of the UN today. Can you share a bit about who those donors were and and what we saw the first CIANCI veterans education cannot wait so looking for funding that needs to be ready to move very very quickly whether it's an unfolding emergencies so there was a number of countries that came to the fore so we saw Norway Way Denmark who was that Germany Germany the United States made a commitment made a big commitment so all all of those commitments are there and ready and then reaching out more widely and I know that education will now look towards the expo twenty twenty coming up and talking to Dubai you buy cars and other organizations in the region about how to galvanize more countries to be able to come in on board we had even more because after the education cannot wait event we had the International Finance Facility for education which is a new proposal. We've had out there and now there's actually money coming into this thing so it's real it's real we had youth campaigners the past last two years campaigning with their world and other organizations to get this thing up and now now it's there today there were six hundred million dollars in pledges into that and because of the way it's sort but actually multiplies the money through through the Multilateral Development Banks Action Equates about two point one billion dollars. We'll be able to invest in the next generation of young people and you combine that that with the amount from education cannot wait. We're looking at two point three two point four billion dollars that was raised just today just across the street for education and that's a big deal. That's probably the most that's been raised origination and he's single day in history. I think that good news. You're going to be the place where we stop today. Thank you so much seren Justin for joining US everyone. Thank you so much for for your attendance. Thank you great

Alarm over widespread and repeated sexual abuse of refugee men and boys in Libya
"The car with you, a news reports of sexual violence against refugee and migrant women and girls are sadly nothing new, but what about horrific attacks on men and boys wore on move. According to a new study by the women's refugee commission into people attempting to reach Italy from North Africa. The abuse is widespread particularly in Libya's detention centers. It's also not a one off event as refugees and migrants repeatedly exposed to multiple forms of sexual violence throughout their journey. Sarah chino worth told you a news Daniel Johnson. We knew that men and women are exposed to all types of violence on this migration routes, and we wanted to get a sense of whether or not men and boys were exposed to sexual violence so going in we didn't have a preconceived notion that they might that. They would be exposed to the extent that they are. So maybe you could describe the kinds of that men and boys are subjected to they are subjected to sexual violence in detention center. In the context of extortion. Sexual violence is used as punishment. If a man for example, tries to escape from a detention center, he may be brought back and all the other men in this detention center have to rape this man as a way to punish and deter. It's also used for subjugation to subjugate and terrorize communities. And then finally we also found that it's used for entertainment or pleasure. We heard that some men are some local men come to the detention centers pay off the guards in order to have the opportunity to rape the men in the boys. Also, not new report that it's getting worse. You've seen particularly in Libya. We heard from our research participants that it is getting worse, we can't confirm this directly. But that's what people told us the reason they think it's getting worse is because the boat crossings have significantly declined. So what ends up happening is that the revenue that traffickers and smugglers would normally receive from those crossings as more or less gone away. So they have to find different ways to compensate for that profit loss. And they are turning to increase torture increased extortion increased sexual violence as a way to compensate for that, that's what we were told a line in your report that quotes a u n staffer doesn't say which agency, but the UN SAFA guesstimates that nine in ten men and boys have been subjected to sexual violence. Maybe you could just back that up with a bit more information, please it's very hard to get a sense of the actual magnitude and percentages. But these types of comments were consistent from the research. Participants one one immigration lawyer believed it was around ninety eight percent of men and boys. Others use language like this happened to the vast majority of men and boys. So we don't know exact percentages. But we do know that it has happened to many many people and that they need services and stigma also is obviously a huge factor in this. We know that women and girls who are raped heavily stigmatized. They didn't. -sarily like to talk about it. But you report does point out that eighty seven and a half percent of refugees since two thousand sixteen from the north African coast to Italy, men and boys presumably the scale of the problem is potentially massive. And that's right. And that's one of the reasons why we wanted to look at this issue within this population. Specifically, it's because men and boys do comprise the large majority of refugees and migrants entering Italy. And certainly if you look at the numbers percentages of those who have experienced torture. Those who have experienced harm and route those are very high percentages and contextualising those percentages with these qualitative findings that point too widespread sexual violence. We can assume that there is sexual gets mad at boys. So what can be done to help? Those many thousands of people presumably who are still stuck in detention centers official ones. And unofficial ones controlled by non-state groups. This is a difficult question to answer because the access in Libya is very very limited. We know. No that at least six thousand people are in detention centers. It's probably inefficient dissension centres. It's probably much more. And they're an unknown number of people in unofficial places of captivity. We imagine I assume that this would be in the tens of thousands. But we don't have precise number in terms of what we can do immune HCR has set up. Emergency transit centers to resettle and sometimes repatriate vulnerable, refugees and migrants, and they have done this with I believe if you but much more needs to be done to address this issue in this requires political will that currently isn't there? There's no sense that the Margraten flow to North Africa is decreasing because of these stories, I don't think I can answer that question. It's unclear whether or not the horrors that are happening in Libya are actually trickling back to the countries of origin. And then having the impact of deterring people from travelling at that's unclear presumably you would be supportive of. Legal migration channels to stop this kind of thing happening this sort of abuse. Absolutely. We need to expand safe and legal pathways to Europe in two other safer countries. Many of the refugees and migrants that we met with were coming to Europe to be with their families. We need to expand visa categories like family reunification visas student visas other types of visas, humanitarian, visas and labor, mobility, schemes there are ways to enable more safe, and legal migration, any fun recommendations that came out of the report one of the primary recommendations is for the EU to reconsider its support for the Libyan coast guard, we found that refugees and migrants who are intercepted by the Libyan coast guard force back into detention centers, we documented sexual violence and sexual torture against them, the current situation this current practice and policy of supporting the Libyan coast guard is untenable and it needs to change that's a primary recommendation.

So if you're just joining us crack beam transbay transit center closed, traffic's mess. It's gonna get even worse sales forces Intel with the big dream for his convention. I mean, no sooner did the center open what forty five days ago and opening by the way that was delayed by nine months. So I did open. Well, again, they've got this rooftop garden and remembered the walkway that circles, the nearly three block long rooftop park started crumbling. That was the first thing. Right. That was their first run in. Sorry. We're laughing. Then you get the crack beam reminiscent of the crack bolts the plague the bay. Prey bridge noticing that San Francisco's mayor is is absent at all this. She's declining comet well, she's over her head completely with running the city anyway, right? The may can I tell you something the mayors of San Francisco don't run the city other people run it just puppets. A lot of it's it's at this is this is such a corrupt city, and I would like to know, but the corruption that goes into. The city when it comes to the planning when it comes to the inspections. How do you not notice a crack be if guys installing ceiling tiles, notice to crack beam? Are you telling me that it wasn't cracked ahead of time? Okay. Now, if that's the case, we really got problems, right? Did somebody see it and stay hush hush. If somebody sought and remained quiet about it. Just get it up. Just get it up. Get it up. We got we got nine months behind get this thing up, or is it possible that the steel can crack after being installed to me. That's scary. Yeah. Oh, man. I don't know this a two point two billion dollar transportation of I should also mention that this thing was it was over budget by believe St. they're six hundred or eight hundred million dollars eight hundred million dollars over budget by eight hundred million dollars it required a bail out from the city of San Francisco to complete its construction. So I'm not sure who's supposed to pay for this. But the city of San Francisco is owed about two hundred sixty million because they had to bail it out the last minute, they ran out of federal money and state buddy and read out of toll money. So the city of San Francisco to say face had to do this photo. But the traffic is going to be a mess today. We're all over it. This will be our big story throughout the course of the morning. Okay. SF? Oh, that's see. Is there anything else that we need to talk about this morning? I mean. There. There are some big stories out there. There's no question about that. I mean, you get the gas tax repeal. By the way, the gas tax repeal. It's this is picking up some steam, this is picking up some steam voters are going to be asked approved the measure twenty twenty to provide funds to fix roads without charging California's more at the pump because people are sick of this gas tax. So supporters of this new initiative to be filed. I think it was to be filed yesterday. Address criticism of proposition six by Jerry Brown. This is picking up. Steam, people are sick of the gas tax. They're sick of these increases in there. Have you noticed your vehicle registration fee? How much more it is? I'm serious. We had a governor who was recalled because of this Greg Davis. It wasn't all that long ago. You got liberal Democrat was recalled over this kind of stuff. So here we are in San Francisco folks land of fruits nuts. By the way, involving the the cavenaugh thing. It's been determined that there's going to be a special prosecutor from Arizona who's going to be asking the questions. I've never heard of this before. She is someone who is an expert for the last twenty years in asking questions in cases involving sexual abuse in that kind of thing. So. I don't know. She's from Arizona. She's a Republican. She's going to ask the questions. We're we're going down the road. We've never traveled before here. Just really crazy stuff. Okay. This does not sound like fun. There was a technology issue yesterday in the world of air travel. Boy, a technology issue with delta. These technology problems. Some of you may have experienced this. If you're traveling yesterday. Delta had to temporarily put all its departing domestic flights on hold yesterday late afternoon evening, causing widespread disruption for travellers across the nation. Okay. Because of technology issues this last year for nine hours. Man alive. So I'm wondering if there are some problems even this morning, right? So this was going on all night if anybody can help us out with that four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred on case Jerry's checking in from union city, Jerry, you're a contractor. We're trying to wrap our brains around this crack beam at the transit center at San Francisco this beam is huge it's like six and a half feet wide. I don't know how long it runs because that transbay terminal is about three blocks log, but if this thing's cracked and they've got to close down the entire transit center. That tells me we got some big problems. Good morning, Jerry. Good morning sorts of steel beam the beam six foot deep honestly carrying a load the top and bottom parts. So it looks like an eye are called the flanges in the middle part is called the web. I'm guessing the park is cracking is the bottom flange because that's one of the most bending moment is on the being and what they could probably do. Obviously just guessing here they could shore up the being temporarily put something on Easter to help support the load, and then an engineer could look at it and designed a fixed weld on new reinforcing plates or something that would. Take the load off the crack and probably repair it Jerry what how can these cracks occur after installation? I don't know. It might be a salty piece of steel during manufacturer. I would doubt it was. I would doubt it was. Or designed because they over design those things so much anyway. Suspect too heavily during construction. Right. It might be a bad piece of steel. And so therefore it could have actually cracked after it was installed as opposed to having been cracked when it was installed. More than likely and the crackers air, you know, sometimes I hear airplane engines fail because there's some type of stress fracturing. Later. So maybe there was a fog manufacture the steel. And then when the weight finally went on it it finally started you, man. Manifest itself. Well, I'll tell and then who would be I we may be getting out of your realm of expertise. But if indeed there's a crack, then who's liable for that is that the company that did the fabrication. Yes. What I say. It would probably be the manufacturer of the steel. But that's where lawyers gonna make all their money home. Gosh, you bet there's this is going to be just a legal battle. Well, I hope it's a repaired the likes of which you just described. How if it's if it's really localized and this isn't widespread. How long would a repair like that take do you think? Well, they could probably get a short up within a day or so. Okay. And that would take immediate danger off of of all the collapses. What sounds like they're worried about? Okay. And then our engineer could probably get a design out in a week. And they could probably had a welded up in a day. Okay. I hope it's that easy Jerry for the sake of the tax payer. This is already so way over budget. The last thing we need is another big headache. Like this. Right. All right. Jerry. Thanks for checking in Gary goes, twenty eight minutes past five o'clock on case. All right. Buckle up. Here..
