The Unexpected Story of a Man and His Bear, Winnipeg
"The toys from our childhood. Stay with us long after we stop playing with them as adults we may lose track of a beloved stuffed animal or a fun action figure but we keep the memories. We remember how safe they made us feel and darkened bedroom or how much fun we had zooming them around the house as if they were flying and yet no matter what we all grow up and leave childish things behind but thanks to one man's impulsive decision. we learned. We don't have to let the past slip away. Not only can we hold onto it but we can share it with the people we love and keep that joy alive for generations to come harry. Colbourn was born in birmingham england in eighteen eighty seven. When he was eighteen years old he moved to ontario canada where he studied to become a veterinarian surgeon upon receiving his degree he settled in winnipeg in manitoba but duty would eventually call. Harry joined the military when world war one became too great to ignore and he hopped a train to quebec for basic training. It was on his way to the camp when he encountered an odd sight. A hunter had killed a black bear and taken. It's cub to sell at a local trading post. Harry gave them twenty dollars and in exchange he took possession of the bear cub which he named winnipeg after the town where he'd been living. His plan was to raise winnipeg for a little while before releasing her back into the forest. Unfortunately harry's plans change very quickly. Winnipeg became a hit among other troops. They played with her and let her stay in the bunks where. She slept under harry's kat that she grew however winnipeg got too big to live indoors and was relegated to outside like a kind of watch bear for the soldiers. The more time they spend together the harder it became for harry to let go. He in winnipeg had grown close. So close that. When he was ordered to go back to england to fight on the western front he refused to release the bear back into the wild he instead snuck her into the ship with the other troops together. They traveled to the second canadian. Infantry brigade camp near stonehenge in england. Harry let her roam free for a while they were there. She enjoyed playing on the large stones but he soon understood that he would have to give her up. There was just no way for winnipeg to go all the way with him to the front
The Left and the Made up Fight Against Racism
"Nine eleven issue is one. That is Reminds me i do now recall. It reminds me of something and they said was painful. The amount of patriotism surrounding that those weeks i remember kids high school age selling american flags. And i remember. I bought a flag from girl near my house. I would say she was a high school girl and and it was a little flag and she charged me twenty dollars for it. And i bought it. I was so happy. That kids were selling american flags and they. They could command such a price that i bought it. And do you realize where we are today where kids are basically taught that the flag represents racism. The flag represents oppression. This is what kids are taught. You understand the injury to america and the injury to them they have nothing to believe in except the woke kness all of which is just made up stuff.

Lock these Rising the turn is certainly something you could do. Considering i could have things like ten no on but you block that It could have our sets he can rise and then decide. What happens if you get free or something like this. Just the charge them Sometimes people to have a bit of a body of the apple when it gets checked and on the flop and certainly on the river We've sort of bombed it harping that what like top paige colza soul.

An Apps Plan to Profit off Your Fear
"So can you first tell us a little bit about what citizen is and does citizen launched in two thousand sixteen. It was called vigilante at the time. Sort of sold itself as the opening up of the nine one one system. You could see what was going on around. You sold it as like you could then serve act on it. In a way that made people think they were encouraging people to be vigilantes. The name didn't help so it was banned from the app store and they relaunched as citizen in two thousand seventeen with a selling point as more of like this is just make people aware of the world around them. Basically the scrape nine one one off of like scanner information and then they visualize it so you open it and you can see where all the nine one one calls very easily on a map. Who know what they are and then people can go to the scenes or if they're already at like video photos whatever and comments and stuff like that. So it's a sort of community thing that just tells you all the batter weird emergency things that are happening in your neighborhood so we had vigilante and then that became citizen and now citizen is launching citizen protect. Tell us a little bit more about the new service. So susan protect is one of the ways that this company hopes to sorta monetize the the sa- free service that brings. It's a twenty dollars a month. Subscription service introducing citizen protect. Your protect agent is just one tap away if you enrolling it you have access to like protect agent and you can call upon that person if you need or think you might need emergency assistance. And then they can help you out. You can do that either through you know tapping the agent button on your app or you can swipe to enable something called protect mode so this actually sounds a bit like poison control. It's an someone you can call if you think you need help but don't know what you need but for twenty dollars a month i have to imagine. It's more sophisticated than that. Yeah i mean we have an app here so we're going to take advantage of all the things you can do from your phone. Technology gives you a protect mode. Which is the thing you know you swipe to enable you can either do something called distress detection which is where a i saw a person but a computer is like listening through your phones microphone for sounds of like screaming or something and then it will either ask you if you want to be connected to an agent or it will automatically connect you if you don't respond quickly enough

Shen Beauty's Jessica Richards: People Want Clean, But They Also Want Results
"The real sort of shift came in realizing that not every woman shops organic clean natural. Whatever you wanna call it Because not everything from that. Category mainly works for their skin and and our issue was that because it was so long ago and there were no other retailers in this space. Certainly none i would say my only competitor at the time was whole foods right like and that's not even a competitor of mine sephora. Ulta bayden want clean organic natural beauty and certainly not what is now in the or niche. You know smaller brands nor did nordstrom's or you know any of these other retailers. They just wanted the mass marketed brands. And so what i realized was that people were coming into the store and they were having a really hard time. Grasping a cleanser. That was one hundred twenty dollars from a brand. They'd never heard of because they were still focused on brand recognition and buying marketing. I mean magazines were huge. Still eleven years ago now. Is there even a magazine in your house right. So i called bobby brown. This is about a year and a half in the business was struggling and she's A really good friend of my ex mother-in-law's and i said look you're not sold anywhere in brooklyn in brooklyn is a new in thriving neighborhood for people that are exiting manhattan. All with families. I really would love to talk to you about bringing your products in. I don't want any of your holiday or your skin care or any of that. I just want your core. Launches your lipsticks nor shimmer. Bricks things that people really know in us and all have Especially the eye gel pot so she said yes and it took about six months for them to figure out how to service my account. Because i'm so small. And i wasn't taking all their holiday launch units but once we brought in bobby brown and that was like about year to what i realized was that it made people more confident and okay wish shopping brands. They had never heard of before and they also wanted the heavy pay off of the pigments. That mainly come from non-clean beauty brands and so that was sort of the catalyst for me in realizing that people want organic natural clean. Whatever you call it but they really want

Why Steady, Low Condo Fees Should Raise a Flag
"The tragedy of the surf side florida condo collapse has raised questions and worries about the structural safety and financial health of condominiums. It's best practice for every condo association to do a study of how much money it needs to keep in reserve. It's like a rainy day. Fund that helps pay for major work so replacing the roof replacement the asphalt when it reaches the end of that service life in these to be replaced. Robert nordland is the founder and ceo of association reserves. It helps condos and other types of properties figure out long-term budgets for major repair and replacement projects and nordland says although many condo owners focused mainly on their monthly homeowners fee. They should also be looking at the amount in reserve a monthly homeowner association dues the monthly assessments. We call that the fool's gold because that's a number that people like to be low. The job of the board of directors is to provide for the needs of the association and those needs accumulate over time deterioration is real and so the number to look for is the association's percent funded and that's the indicator of the combined physical and financial health of the building. I think many people who own condos their instinct is to be cranky when they're given a bill for something like a hallway renovation or the swimming pool platform is that a natural reaction to be cranky but not the way people should be thinking about it. Well that's a natural reaction. You would think that that should have been collected. They should have planned for that and indeed is a lot easier to plan for that with an extra five dollars a month or twenty dollars a month and that's what should be deterioration has constant deterioration is expensive deterioration is predictable and so the boards should be setting aside funds on ongoing basis to offset that deterioration.
Save Money by Going Reusable
"Go reusable. You can tell the up some major savings just by opting for products that are reusable instead of single use about it. How many gas station water bottles have you bought this month or dago water bottles. I mean even if you're just buying a water bottle once a week you're spending one hundred fifty bucks per year unjust plastic. Do yourself a favor and by the twenty dollar reusable water bottle and fill it up all the time. There are so many everyday things we can swap with reusable counterparts bringing your own bags to the grocery store instead of using the plastic ones which will save you some money in states. Like new york where you're charged fee forgetting bags at checkout and plus their way more comfortable to walk with you can put way more stuff in there and you can bring your own coffee mug to starbucks. You can use a dish towel instead of a whole bunch of paper towels and okay. I hate using a crusty dish towel as much as the next gal or guy but newsflash. It's twenty twenty one nasty dish. Rags are things of the past. They now make dish towels that come with soap in the micro fibers. So you don't have to also by dish soap which yes comes in a plastic bottle so instead of buying a multi pack of paper towels three times a month you have a one and done dish towel. Purchase that you can throw in with your laundry and it's good as new
Karpathy Talks Tesla Vision,
"Today. We're gonna be talking about a new presentation over the weekend. By tests director of artificial intelligence andre carpathia andrea shared some thoughts and new details on tesla's transition over to pure vision the removal of radar from the autonomy hardware sweet and some new details on what tesla is doing outside of the vehicle to help push autonomy forward so we got the main points from their will pull a couple of clips out as well but i would recommend watching the entire talk about half an hour long. I'll put the link to that in the show notes we've also got an update from elon. Musk on ai. Day another week. Email from ilan as quarter and approaches some news on subscription offerings from tesla. Couple more data points on the planet model as and gigabyte lint up and down day tesla's stock today but couldn't quite make it to four positive days in a row finishing down four tenths of a percent to six hundred and twenty dollars. Eighty three cents that did compared to the nasdaq which was up eight. Tenths of a percent are at so getting into this andre carpathia presentation these are always really fascinating to listen to. He kicked it off talking about. Just how kind of silly that we have these multi-tonne metal vehicles driving people around being controlled by computers as he puts it and that tesla thinks that they can replace that and should replace that with a silicon computer so one of his first slides here just clearly lays out the advantages of that namely reduce latency and increased awareness. Both in terms of perspective and attentiveness. And of course cost. There's a lot of human resources going into driving around cars today so as we know. Of course this is already leading to you. Advantages improved safety. Andre showed a couple of real world examples. Demonstrating that principle on emergency braking i i think we've all seen clips like that. He also showed a traffic control warning. Someone didn't recognize red light. The car dead and then he showed two clips here which i wanna play. Because i haven't seen clips like this from tussle. Before showing what andre calls pedal misapplication mitigation basically using the vehicles interpretation of the surroundings to stop unintended acceleration when the driver actually meant to hit the brake instead of the accelerator. These are examples from Pedal misapplication mitigation pm. You're a person is embarking from driving spot and the are trying to turn and they mess up and they accidentally it
Was Voice Control a Goal for the Kindle3? Brad Stone Author of Amazon Unbound - Voicebot Podcast Ep 214 - burst 09
"The only thing that i learned that i hadn't heard about before. Was that it could be that the original idea for alexa came. As part of the kindle is a feature so. I think that was new from your book. I hadn't heard that the past that someone w- the jeff wanted to integrate voice commands into the kindle at one point. They finally talked about it because it wouldn't be able to ship it time. I don't know that that was the inspiration for alexa but it to me was a symbol of his apparent faith in voice as an interface. And there was this question that some reviewers headed the time. And i remember wondering about why was there a microphone in the third version of the kindle and it was never it was never used at i went to some engineers who worked at it and they were like yet. Jeff insisted that we keep it even when we were trying to reduce the bill of materials and he says and the word came back to them. Jeff believes that in the future will communicate by voice so it was just as a signal that back in whenever that kindle came out i think like two thousand and two thousand nine that basis was thinking about voice But it wasn't until and again this was. It was really hard to kind of piece together. What the original inspiration was and fokin heart. And sorry ian freed and greg hardy who worked very closely together. They actually tell different stories about this. About what the and you know. And and essentially i mean ultimately in the book go with greg heart story predominantly because he is the the technical advisor to basis in two thousand ten. He's in every meeting. They're having lunch together. And you know. He believes that The real the real spark the thing that led to that email. We should build a twenty dollar computer whose brands are in. The cloud was hard over lunch in seattle with basis. Showing him google voice on his android phone and basil's realizing okay. This is getting good enough but the smartphone application is just a little awkward. Are people really going to take out their phone talk to it. Wouldn't it be much more natural if you could just you know. Talk to the folks in star trek to the ship computer right right and he talks about star trek many times in space. I always you always wonder like origin. Stories change over time right so you never know when that entered into the picture but he i think that makes sense in a And google voice recognition around that time period was getting pretty
Bluffcatching For Stacks
"John. Why don't you break down the firsthand or relay the action of the first hand to the listener so our regular game here on tuesday. Five ten no limit. Six max cash on ignition san starts with brad and the big blind. The button opens to twenty dollars. Brad calls with queen of diamonds screen. Jack off suit brad. You know the buttons a regular a fish. I can see that. He's starting with a ninety five. Big blind stacks. Oats little hard to tell so. They appear to be a rag even though my sample size on them is not very not very big. Just because that's how ignition roles but they do appear to be a rag veep tipping something like twenty nine percents opening like eighteen percent pre. No three bats yet. But i mean that's the thing that can happen over. Forty seven hands with a small sample size. Okay sounds good. So but no bins. We defend queen jack off suit. A flop is nine of spades. Eight of clubs do some diamonds. Ninety three. we start with the check. The button starts with a large bet. That's forty to seventy five and two forty five. This actually really big. But i think having a big size on these low middling boards is definitely not uncommon to see. I guess we can just talk about here if you have a preference I saw like how you would rather continue resume. You're never folding to overs in a gunshot and the nut got shot so it's either going to be between a caller chuck raise for you. Why do you presume that john. The fold very exciting tactical tuesday. Today i check full to the flop. So i mean when it happened i i kind of remember the thoughts that went through my mind and it was like a typically opponent struggled to raise appropriately versus these big sizes out of position here. So because it's somewhat of an under bluffs spot. I just going to go f- go for it and check raise. I think chuck calling check calling his viable as well. I think the problem with check raising this big size. Is that with all your potential straight draws that you have if your check raising all the combos check raising likely way too much but without said like i. I think check raising. Here's just fine. Yeah the other thing that i noticed. Was that this village on the button as one hundred percent. Wop seabed stat. I don't know how many c- betting opportunities that that is over but still like someone with one hundred percent flops. But i'm definitely going to be more willing to attack with a wider check raise range than normal mo. I was gonna say that that's important because villain shouldn't be using this large sizing at a very high frequency really any information no matter how small can be important when villain chooses a sizing that. They're not supposed to use very often like if we see that they're c- betting all the time then. It's very likely that they're overdoing it. Yeah okay so you check raise I guess the other thing that we should talk about after we've decided that we want to check raises. How large should recite check. Raise this almost pot on the flop and as eight hundred eighty five behinds after. See but yeah i mean. I don't really love the sizing that i use in game. I think i probably should have gone larger. I went effectively. Three x dig. It might be exactly three ex villains bet risking one twenty six to win eighty seven. I think the problem with that as villains just got a lot of natural continues on this board lot of straight draws just a lot of hands that are gonna get sticky. I mean even when they have like an eight or nine there probably continuing so this is folding out like some qinghai type hands or eisai type hands but let them get two and a half the one needing twenty eight percent equity to continue in position. I think just is not very good on my end. Yeah and this is something that actually. We just talked about briefly. A couple of days ago was like preferred check resizing on the flop. And how at least for me. It looked like i was making this mistake. That you made in this hand whereas just checkers way too small on all over the

How Do You Get People to Get a Vaccine?
"So before we got to the whole vaccine issue. I had a general question for wharton's katie milkman. Win it comes to sort of carrots versus sticks what tends to be more effective when you're trying to incentivize people. The general finding from behavioral economics is that losing something is significantly more motivating than gaining the equivalent. If so six be carrots in terms of their motivational power. Now there are some caveats to that. Caveats like the stick approach while effective can make people really angry which is not ideal if you are company or a politician in fact katie recalls one experiment from primary election in two thousand six trying to encourage people to vote researchers sent out mailers that included the voting records of people and their neighbors. It was kind of a shame strategy. So they're finding out if you showed up just as you can see if they've showed up and we're going to update everyone in the neighborhood on who comes to this election so you'd better go or your navel. Irs will find out you didn't and that one piece of junk mail increased voter turnout by eight percentage points which is like the most unbelievable effect that anything has ever had people were so so angry about this right absolutely infuriated so it was effective but it had massive blowback so the stick approach is tricky especially when it comes to something like a vaccine but the cared approaches tricky. To katy in fact certain carrots can backfire like having the wrong person encourage someone to get a vaccine shot can make that person less likely to get the shot and in the case of paying people to get the vaccine the amount of money seems to be key. Katie says the early studies have shown that smaller amounts of money can backfire. So we're paying people one hundred dollars to vaccine might work and get more people to get vaccinated ping people. Twenty dollars can actually discourage people from getting a
How Does Tik Tok Lead Generation Ads Work
"Last year since it really grew. And hey should i be on tiktok that you know as my audience there and so that's what i really wanted to talk to you about recently. Tiktok launched legion as one of the campaign objectives and it really just copies the campaign objectives from google from facebook from linked in twitter. And you'll notice if you're setting if you're setting up in ads account on any of those platforms. One of the first things that are going to do when you're looking at the ads. Creation is choosing the audience right. That's one of the things but the first step is really choosing the objective. And so if you go on tiktok in the ads manager part of tiktok you can see that. They now offer lead generation as one of the objectives right so if you wanna generate leads beat a b. or b. two c. It's there for tiktok whether it's gonna work for your business or your product or service or industry it. You'll need to test. I am testing it right now with a couple different clients. I'm testing it with my podcast. I actually just set up a lead gen campaign on tiktok for fifty dollars to run over the course of actually sixty dollars over the course of. I believe it's three days. So that's the minimum or you can choose the other minimum which is Twenty dollars a day but if we look at the audience the way i see it as this sixty two percent of all tiktokers are in the. Us are between the ages of ten and twenty nine. so that's not my audience. I know my audience the majority of the decision makers that i worked with them daily basis as a b. two b. service provider. My audience is forty five to sixty five years old. That's those are the people that are almost always making the decisions on building account. So you have to figure out if you're a b. two b. is your audience there presumably if they're telling me that sixty two percent or ten twenty nine than the other thirty percent are thirty years to sixty five years. Don't but i don't know a lot of adults who are of a you know even my my age category genetics Spending too much time on tiktok nevertheless even if you can get a small audience and generate some leads. Hey you wanna be creating brand awareness. If your lifestyle brand you sell products and

"And Browse privately avoiding trackers Duck Duck, go, privacy simplified. You may have noticed something that all of these protests over police violence. There are a lot more white people there than you'd expect. But how long will that last this awoken among White American voters? How far they really willing to go beyond dethroning trump Adam server on race and lessons from history listen, it's subscribe to it in a minute from NPR NPR. And we're back and you know historically there has been this assumption. That Republicans are staunchly pro law enforcement, and in some ways kind of skeptical of reform, but polling has begun to show that a growing majority of Americans are questioning the disproportionate use of police force. So Claudia. To, hear more about it what we're beginning to hear from some congressional Republicans that they have some of their own plans about some type of police reform. Yes. This is really interesting. Just forty eight hours ago, I was very skeptical I didn't see them aligning in terms of putting anything together, but just in the last couple of days we've seen a lot of momentum Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell appointed Tim. Scott who is the lone Black Gop Republican in the Senate, and he is going to be heading up this effort to put together legislation just today. He was saying that he's hopeful that they can put together a bill by this Friday so in just a matter of. Of Days Yeah. So this is really a quick turnaround. He also thinks there may be overlap with House Republicans. There may even be overlap with the White House. That is, that is one of the wild wildcard, but it's really interesting seeing this traction off so quickly, and perhaps there could be a middle ground for everyone to meet on. Do you have any idea of what kind of proposals the Republicans might be considering so Scott detailed some of the provisions so far in his plan. They are steering away from some of. Of the provisions in the Democratic proposal that includes a ban on chokehold and a ban on no knock warrants in drug-related cases. Scott says he sees issues like that being addressed more in training and working on spreading escalation tactics throughout police departments across country, and that's the way to address it. He also wants to develop a national commission to study potential police reforms changes that could be made, and he also wants to get everyone. All these police departments under the same umbrella when it comes to federal reporting requirements today he. He says only forty percent of police departments report to the FBI and the Justice Department, and so he wants to see that number escalated. He also wants to see body cameras. Any wants to see the funding for that. Go Up, if not. He wants to see penalties when it's not used I hate to be a party pooper here, but the notion that There's a calls for yet. Another commission to study policing is going to vary. severely disappoint people in a lot of communities around the country President Obama. Had commissioned on policing in the twenty first century President Trump and the Justice Department currently have another commission on law enforcement, and so the notion that the most that could come out of a Republican. Bill would be yet another commission and more money for police I. Think would really anger people out there in the streets who are fearful of how police might use more money to go after them and that's an interesting. Interesting point we are hearing that from Democrats who are aware of these Republican efforts on the Senate side, but they're skeptical. They think so far. This doesn't go far enough. They think so far. This doesn't go far enough, and so we're hearing those concerns another study. No, no real bands here and so that's part of the issues that they're dealing with in terms of. Can we meet some on some middle ground here? And I want to say to your question earlier asked my vet There is a role for the federal government to play here, but a lot of the problems that police good police officers are being called to solve every day on American streets are not really law enforcement problems there other kinds of problems which leads to on. This conversation that some people are calling de-fund or disband police. What they're really talking about in a lot of cases is providing money for social services, mental health services, education and other programs that would not lead. People have run INS with cops on the streets that could leave them either incarcerated or horribly in some cases dead you know, do we have any sense of what type of reform if any president trump might actually be willing to sign into law, you know I see two data. Points here with respect to the administration. One is that attorney general bill, Bar and the acting head of Homeland Security Chad Wolf have both. Both said publicly that they don't really see systemic racism in law enforcement in the United States in the second. Is that during the trump campaign in twenty sixteen, one of the major moments for me was when the country's largest police union. The fraternal order of police threw its weight behind candidate Donald Trump. It would be a surprise to me if donald trump broke with the F. O. P. in a lot of cases here, what state and local officials are trying to do is renegotiate union contracts with police. So this is a complicated set of factors for the White House to consider Claudia T to that point. Do we have a sense of congressional Republicans. Will only put into legislation things they absolutely no, the trump administration will sign onto, or could we be in a situation given that there's so much public pressure that they feel an urgency to do something and I'm just kind of curious if we know. Will they actually just kind of acquiesced to what the trump administration wants? Are they facing public pressure to put a more sort of forward thinking piece of legislation forward? I think we're seeing the latter tim. Scott was just asked about this today. Will you roll out a proposal without President Trump on board? And he said we're just going to move forward. They are working on a plan. We're working. Working on a plan House Republicans are working on a plan and there is common ground. He's trying to remain optimistic. They can meet on this common ground, but he didn't seem interested in the idea at all of holding off legislation until getting president trump's sign off. It's really interesting. They're ready to move forward. It seems without his support ladies. I am so dubious like Gimme a break that they. They would actually challenge the president. You're saying congressional Republicans one hundred percent, I would have thought that I would have thought that just a few weeks ago, but just the energy there when I was there yesterday and seeing what Republicans are saying today, it seems like they are barreling full speed ahead I. AM surprised that this shift but I understand what you're saying, but it be. Energy was different. Different on Capitol Hill. Yesterday all right well. That is a rat for day. We'll be back.

"NPR podcast. It's two seven pm on Wednesday. June ten I must not call it. I cover the presidential campaign I'm cloudy Silas. I Cover Congress and I'm Carrie. Johnson I covered. The Justice Department J. It's been ages since we've seen you. You're on a fellowship a wonderful journalism fellowship for the last year. You know one of the things that really struck me a year ago. Is I was preparing to study? Was this quote by a civil rights? Lawyer named Bryan, Stevenson and he said we have to acknowledge the four hundred years of injustice. Injustice that haunts us and our system. And he said basically we're at a moment where we're either going to double down on Romanticizing are past or accept that there's something better waiting for us and low and behold coming back to work this week. I, realized were right in the middle of a conversation about that very topic well today on the hill, George fluids, brother flowness. Floyd testified at a House Judiciary Committee and he spoke about his brother's death at the hands of Minneapolis. Police George wasn't hurt anyone that day. He didn't deserve to die over twenty dollars. Accent you. Is that what is that? What a black man is worth? Twenty dollars. This is twenty twenty. Enough is enough. The people marching in the streets are telling you enough is enough. Leaders that our country, the world needs the right thing. Floyd with speaking directly to lawmakers. There was this hearing that was part of a police reform proposal that Democrats have put forward I'm here to ex- you to make it stop. Stop the pain. Stop US being tired. George Carl for help and he was ignored. Please listen to the cow. Now. To the calls about family and the cows ringing out the streets across the world, people of all backgrounds Jindal racist have come together to demand change. On Him. On a George and make the necessary changes that make law enforcement the solution. And, not the problem Claudia Floyd was not the only person who testified today Su. Who else spoke and what's the message? They were trying to get across. Yes, so it was a very large panel today as we heard flowness floyd. In person, he was there. It was a very dramatic moment. Others testified virtually, and some were there on the panel as well. We had the police chief from Houston. We heard from passers. We heard from folks for Republicans who were speaking on issues such as defunding the police and activists who are worried about where things are headed when it comes to policing in the need. Need for Reform Unit Claudia. You mentioned that there were some witnesses brought by Republicans and one of them was pastor Daryll Scott who's in adviser for President Trump? He spoke against this idea of dismantling police forces in the country law, abiding citizens, and I've spoken to a great deal of them. Overwhelmingly think that defunding or disbanding police departments is a horrible idea, so it's interesting. Interesting we heard about this theme from Republican witnesses, but at the same time this is an issue that Democrats happen to agree with a lot of them. There are some that are concerned about this issue and say that police should be funded or disbanded, but for the most part what we're hearing from Democrats is. They're not interested in including this in their proposal or moving. Moving forward with it. They think that Republicans are using it against Democrats and for the most part they're saying. We're not on board with it either, so it's an interesting moment terms of overlap that they mostly seem to agree that they don't WanNa. See defunding of police and carry. Some of the witnesses were proposing specific solutions. Can Iverson's of what some of those ideas were? Yeah there were a bunch of things from from altering law enforcement's ability to get a warrant where they don't have to knock on your front door and drug cases which led to a lot of violence in the past, and has been very concerning to civil rights advocates to ending or limiting programs that allow the military to provide tanks and other munitions to local police forces. We saw tanks on Washington DC streets here in the last week or so alone and then Other measures that would increase the justice, department's ability to prosecute bad cops and it changes to something called qualified immunity that would expose Some police officers who engage in wrongdoing to more liability to be sued in the courts. And Kill, you've been speaking with civil rights advocates about how they're reading this moment. What reform do they think is possible right now? You know I talked yesterday with Chirac. Baynes who co-authored the justice. Department's Ferguson report many years ago in the Obama Justice Department and he said he was surprised that not much changed after that, but now does appear to be a real moment where the eyes of the country in the world are really upon the US the US Congress and US police, and so the challenge for for people who want to see change is if now is the moment they want. The Congress to go big. Not just to think about creating a national registry of police wrongdoers or making a national standard for the use of deadly force by police, but also try to reduce the footprint of law enforcement in the lives of black and Brown people around the country as Vanita. The former head of the civil rights division under president. Obama testified today, but you know Carrie I think when a lot of us think about law enforcement often think of our local cities. Police Department Department. We think of it at a very local level. So is there a role that Congress in the federal government have to play here that people see that there is something they can do. This is a big challenge. In fact, police is most policing is done on the state and local level, but there is a role for the federal government. There has been at least since the brutal attack on Rodney King in Los Angeles where Congress amended the law..
