How Media Differs in Coverage of Trump Impeachment Trial

"From wnyc in new york. This is on the media. Bob garfield is away. This week. i'm brooke gladstone writing early on friday. My impeachment experienced this week was incomplete consisting of an incoherent improvisation in the first act. That's a rare. Bipartisan view and a clarion concatenation. In the second try listeners. Too often with a phrase like that. And you're asking for trouble but it's so good clarion a clear ringing stirring sound concatenation and interlocking sequence in this case in unbreakable narrative chain. Wow nd around the senate to extract a verdict of guilty. Some senators said they felt the case presented against trump built on months of his words and deeds climaxing in violent rampage. Black physical memory of trauma. Indeed the point was to convey the truth in body as well as mind and the truth is president. Trump had spent months hauling his supporters to a march on a specific day at a specific time in specific places to stop the certification. You will not be hearing extended lectures for me because our case is based on cold hard facts at trial we will prove overwhelming evidence that president trump is singularly and directly responsible for inciting the salt on the capital. They took away your vote. It's rigged that was not true. According to judge after judge the truth was exactly the opposite president. Donald john trump incited this violence. This is what the evidence has overwhelmingly shown. And we'll show in this trial. it's also the truth. There are evidence came from an impressive array of sources. fbi affidavits media reports capital. Police radio recordings along thirty second videos captured by documentary ins citizen. Journalists capitol security camera footage live streaming insurrectionists and the presentation of trump's own tweets as. They were posted during the attack to prove to at least seventeen republican senators that he had not only incited the january sixth insurrection but helped plan it they had originally planned rallies for january twenty second and january. Twenty third after the inauguration but donald trump had other plants on december nineteenth president trump tweeted his save date for january six. He told his supporters to come to dc for a big protests the day billing it as wild just days later women for america first amended their permit to hold their rally on january six. That was stacey plaskitt delegate for the united states virgin islands for the prosecution. Here's what the fbi said. And i quote other members of the group talked about things. They had done that day and they said that anyone they got their hands on they would have killed including nancy. Pelosi and that quote they would have killed vice president. Mike pence if given the chance combining cctv footage with a diagram of the capital. She showed how very close members of congress had been to the mob and they showed video of the senators themselves watching themselves evacuate including a very close. Call for senator mitt romney. He shook his head. He told reporters he had never seen. Not video. before. I saw senator bill cassidy and important republican in this whole proceeding still as a stone except for his pen which was moving in his fingers. Josh hawley republican senator from missouri. The guy photographed holding up his fist in solidarity with the rioters on january six did not brandish his midst wednesday. He just averted. His is all the senators. Have the option to use the gallery. And the upstairs area for seating for social distancing. Josh hawley is the only one taking advantage of that opportunity. He's been sitting with his legs on the seat in front of msn reading non-related material in twenty minutes. or so. i was in the chamber just now. i didn't see him. Look down really at all to engage. Rick scott tom. Cotton marco rubio read during the hearings rand paul doodles nor was fox. News keen to engage it. Cut away from the proceedings on wednesday as the prosecutors were revealing some of their most potent evidence.

Fresh update on "virgin islands" discussed on Brian Lehrer

"Never never His seems to be open to filibuster reform of some sort, and he's someone that's that's worth listening to, because you're not going to reform the filibuster or get rid of it without Joe Mansion on your side. And it gets back to this structural overrepresentation of Republicans in Congress that you mentioned a minute ago. And I think this really important and a lot of people don't realize it. The difference between Popularity of the covert relief bill and the percentage of Republicans in Washington 62% approval ratings. But Republicans have half the Senate because small rural states get the same number of senators as highly populated states plus the redistricting or Jerry Mannering of congressional district in the House. It took place in 2010. Because Republicans controlled so many state legislatures. Can you talk more about the implications of that for governing America? Sure, we're having a big debate in this country about the difference between minority rights and minority rule. Minority minority Rights means the minority party should have some rights that we just shouldn't have kind of just, you know, majority run roughshod over the minority. And the founding fathers built in some minority rights protections. They never could have imagined that we would have a situation where we have a senator Senate That's 50 50. But the 50 Republicans Represent 44 million fewer people than the 50 Democrats. If the population and demographic trends continue as they are now, by 2040. We're gonna have 30% of Americans represented by 70 senators and 70% of Americans represented by 30 Senators. This is also because of what's called the big sort. Democrats are just masked inefficiently in California, New York on the Western East coasts and Republican voters are sprinkled efficiently throughout the Heartland, where Real estate gets an advantage, especially in the Senate. So what are the solutions to this? There's a whole reform agenda that's being discussed. Obviously, Democrats would like it some point to let Puerto Rico in D C. Make them states. Maybe even the Virgin Islands. There's talk about Expanding the House of Representatives. Why should you know a state like Wyoming have congressional district that represents 400,000 odd people, But everybody else has has district's that are 700 something on people so There. A lot of there's a lot of talk about that, Um, voting rights is I think the civil rights issue of our time and partisan gerrymandering is something that's that the Supreme Court has said it's fine with But that means that on the state level, it's going to have to be debated State by state.

What Parents Need to Know About Anxiety (with Dr. Ann-Louise Lockhart)

"Use a lot of mental health diagnosis and terms interchangeably. With just regular speak. You know we say oh my gosh the weather so bipolar or or what. Movie was so schizophrenic. We use a lot of those kind of mental help terms to describe everyday life and it's very inaccurate. Most of the time. And so i think Disorders are one of those things. Because we have feelings like fear and worry and then we have anxiety disorders which can include a lot of things like a fear of being a crowded space where you can't escape which is a phobia panic disorders. We have specific. Phobias or fear of dogs are snakes are flying. We have generalized anxiety which is kind of a general feeling of uneasiness about a multiple sorts of things they actually included selective mutism few years ago into the anxiety disorders spectrum of diagnoses. As well too. So you have a lot of different things that cover that so really. What distinguishes fear and worry from the inside disorder. That severe is when it causes significant. Impairments on your everyday functioning. It's one thing if you're a little afraid of dogs for example or spiders and you just don't like them but if you're constantly checking corners and your obsessive about it and you're always asking for reassurance from your parents and making sure that nothing is going to hurt you in the middle of the night you sure there's no spiders in my bed mommy and it's constant and it's impacting their ability to function in their everyday life. That's when we're looking at more like an anxiety disorder type thing that's where the category of anxiety falls because it impacts everything school learning friendships their thought life. All of that kinda stuff and that's where that distinction between the worry in exile. Come into place and what causes that. Were maybe like you said. It's the one time being afraid when they see that animal or spider whatever but when it goes from that to now i checking every corner in doing very unreasonable things around this. It's a variety of things. There's a hereditary factor so there's a lot of people that it's just in your family where a lot of people when i'm talking to them and doing an intake they'll say. Yeah you know. Anxiety runs in my family. My mom was a warier. My grandma was aware and her grandma was aware here. And so it's kind of like this hereditary factor there's a genetic component to it but there's also a learned component as well to where if you have a parent who's a very anxious person and they act in anxious ways then if you're around them then you are going to be more likely to be anxious as well. When i was growing up for example my mom was hugely afraid of frogs. And i grew up on an island so i grew up in the virgin islands. And we're surrounded by water ed. She loved plants so we had plans lining the entry to our front door. And where do frogs hang out in moist plants so there would be huge frogs over our doorway and that's the only way to get in the house and so then she would be like okay. Well what i guess. We can't go inside the house. And i'm like so. Are we supposed to do so. That i started becoming hyper vigilant and scanning all the time. Because i'm like oh well. What if there a fraud because the frogs on the island are huge. Huge so then it kind of became. This learned fear of frogs because she was so worried. I picked up on it from her. Would i have been afraid of frogs. If she hadn't been maybe maybe not. But it can also be a learned factor because anxiety is not something that we just have at something that can be learned definitely. But then there's another piece of it which is there's a predisposition factor where there are some personalities and temperaments that are predisposed are more likely to having zaidi or having anxiety disorder. Because they're more sensitive or they're more observance or they're very in tune with their environments. And there's a lot of evidence that shows that individuals who are more intelligent even are more likely to be anxious because they have very divergent ways of thinking outside the box thinker. So they're always thinking what could go wrong anyway and that's just how they normally think about things and sensitive picking up all these different layers all the time of things that are going on. Yeah that makes so much sense. Though about the environmental factor of the parent having that power since children are always looking to their parents to check their center and really hoping or needing those parents to be centered as much as possible. And you see it when children are even they fall and they look up at their parents to see. What do you think about. This is all right. Like am i going to be okay. And children are picking up everything constantly from their parents. So what a parent do if they are like your mother or fit. They're very easily anxious or they have clinical anxiety. How do parents manage this to try not to have it affect their children. So much yeah. That's a great question. And the thing is that when i often see children or teens with anxiety i prefer to see them along with their parents because as i teach the child the teen about specific strategies i also want the parents to learn more often than not the parent is also struggling with it and the cool thing about anxiety. Strategies is up there pretty much universal across the board. You just tweak it. A little bit based on age to make it more digestible for a child to understand. And so i think of big part of it is for the parent that they need to address their own anxiety. They need to do the work like anything else right. is that we. We have things that are going on that. We've been rehearsing inhabits for decades which is often the case. then we've gotten really good being anxious and It's just an automatic default and so if our kids are constantly hearing and seeing and living out then. We're always reinforcing it so they can get all the help they want. But if you are still than reinforcing the other way of thinking then it's going to be hard for them to get out of that anxious mindset so i think a big part of it i as the parent has to be aware that they actually do have anxiety and then do the work to overcome that so they're not instantly giving it to their child and i think that's really really important for and this is just one of the many many important ways that children inspire us to work on ourselves in a positive way and heal

US COVID-19 surge triggers flurry of new response steps

"As the number of cases of Covad spikes officials are taking steps to slow down the spread. Here's our 24 7 reporter Michael Bauer with the latest morning, Michael Good morning, and those warnings are coming now from not just hospitals that are indicating that there are doctors treating a deluge of new patients that they're breaking the reaching a breaking point, leading to dire warnings about full hospitals, exhausted healthcare workers potential lockdowns that may be coming from the hospital because they just can't handle or deal with the cases that are coming in, and the White House coronavirus task force bluntly stating And its latest report that there is now aggressive, unrelenting, expanding broad community spread across the country, reaching most counties without evidence of improvement, but rather further deterioration. And a lot of people are saying dog. Yeah, that's that's you don't just end up with, you know, getting 300 days to go from 0 to 10 million covert infections and then one week to add an additional million cases. We are seeing an unprecedented spread right now happening in the country all across all 50 states, including Washington, D. C. The U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam all over the past 14 days and the average daily number of patients dying. This is how this there's a lag in all of this, Ron, you go from infections. Two hospitalizations to death numbers on the rise in the daily and number of patients dying of covert in the U. S. Has reached a level not seen since the outbreak surged during the summer, and there's a concern. That's going to get worse as well. So we're in the thick of it. We're in the midst of it right now. And you're seeing local governments Cities. You're seeing ST Louis and Chicago imposing stricter limits on gatherings in Boston, a Thanksgiving meal that would be routine any other year now may result in a 911 call or a fine, according to Boston's mayor, Marty Walsh, now no indication how he's going to enforce that per se, But he also added a clear message to college students. If you're gonna go home for Thanksgiving Don't plan on coming back to Boston this semester. You should do the rest of your learning remotely. That's where the level of concern is there for spread. And in Cleveland, there were so many new infections reported over the weekend. That city workers could not even get them all counted in time for their Monday morning briefing, So you're seeing that cities are starting to take effect. They're creating their own world within the states, which are also creating their own worlds where you're seeing places like Iowa who once dismissed mask mandates as feel good measures. They've issued limited orders this week for mass mandates, and that's the bigger picture. The states and local governments are handling what the general and federal government right now has been unable to handle.

How does the Electoral College work?

"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.

From somewhere around the world. Welcome to the black women travel podcast. Hi, my name is wanted Dunkin and I'm so glad you're joining me as we explore the paths of black women who've made travel a large part of their lives welcome to the show. PGA. Method Dude. Thank you for joining us today. Can you please tell us your name where you're from your current location and the name of Your Business? Hey everybody. My name is GonNa Gaspard or also known as the region Foodie and I am arrays and synchro in the US Virgin Islands, and I currently am I still live I live there right now. But right now, this very moment I, am in south Florida in the. Broward County area and of my business I have feet of them. But Cruzan Foodie is my brand where I am a food and travel entrepreneur freelance writer blogger social media influencer, and then I also own. Virgin Islands Couturiers, which is a walking tour company in the Virgin Islands in Saint Croix specifically where I share the food history culture and architecture of the island with visitors and locals. So were you born the life of the party or did you have to like work up to that? I would say it's something that I worked up to I was the last four I'm the only girl and so with growing up with boys, it was more. hosing sports than things like that but. As I got older, you know graduated high school into college really started embracing my Caribbean background and all the Bucknell that we liked to quarte kid that's something that can develop over overtime speaking of Beckon also, we have to talk about carnival obviously. I do want to get like more into like. Who you were when you were little and your progress as a human being. So back down means wild that just means like. Not while as in no control or know. When people think of lying? Yeah it's like lively. It's like no-holds-barred Kinda like anything goals in a sense and you just up yourself as we like to stay like you're up in the Bukamal 'cause you're not concerned about, Hussein. What who looking at you, who Mata might who might call him and tell them that you will increase the delay you just you just need to have a good time. So that's that's part of the Bucknell. So you were born and raised in Saint Croix. Yes. So is what you call a crucial. Silent Bob. Say Doc while accidental death typically fast but. Increase it by maybe two or three notches. 'cause we talk really fast. Trust me have sometimes people talk to me I like wait does he does the? They talk it's not clear. But Yeah Monitor is in Croix we are US territory. So I have a US passport and many of the I think the blessing of being from a U. S. territory. But being the Caribbean is that I still have that Caribbean background upbringing. Still you walk into a office. So you pass somebody on the street you're always say good morning, good afternoon or good night. We, see the young a brought up see as the lack of being brought up. Correctly we see another lack of brought up seeing if you walk into a room or you walk into office, even pass the Miami Street and you don't say good morning afternoon face you know. But then on the flip side. Having the ability to travel more or less freely and go to the US than you know, go to the malls and do different things than have vacations and have access to those things and that quote unquote freedom if you will. That's you know the benefit of that you know. What else does it mean to you to be Cruzan? Oh, I would say it's just a prayed it. There's there's a pride of being born and raised in. Kreutz. Not something that I can. EASILY, put into words it's. It's when you're born and raised there like I said having that upbringing A. Being proud of where you're from. Having such a close knit community and and being. At one you know 'cause as a small community, everybody knows everybody had to tell people all one degree of separation. So if you go to the grocery store the bakery, you're guaranteed to know somebody that's there or if you don't know them directly, you know somebody who know them. And I think that close knit feeling of. Being alone you know I know that I always. I'm always protected. I'm always covered like as Cruzan wherever I am wants another wasn't Bluebeard, is there like big at me? They got me in that sense you know and I like I like that. Sometimes is that a little too close though everybody being? Especially can be. Grown foggy up yes. Ma'am. So that was my biggest I guess when I moved back home still you know I left home went to College Grad did Grad School, and then I lived in Europe for a little over six months I lived in Spain for a learning Spanish show is in the UK for some time kind of troubled throughout Europe. And then I decided to move back home and start the flute toward company and. Always, wanted to move back home. It was never a question of that or any delta. My mining knew that it was going to happen I just didn't know how or what it was. But this summer like I ain't nobody because I I just can't deal too much into infrastructure for me have to look for anybody and no moving back. Cuomo is all my guy love going into the bakery end big my order and I like going into the supermarket and The person's will catch me last week as a person cash this week or running into a family friend or pass class, meet and greet but sometimes you just want to disconnect. and not be seeing and being that as Cruzan foodie being a person who writes wouldn't travel specifically of the Virgin Islands and the Caribbean people will know who I am quote unquote a local celebrity. So even if I tried to stake Asian and go, they go to eat in dining room up guaranteed. By I'm also remember. We. Listen my brothers will come 'cause i. have three brothers ate they would come to. visit and we'd go into a local watering hole that I always go a lit.

Renewables could help Caribbean become more hurricane-resilient

"I'm Dr Anthony Lahser wits, and this is climate connections. When hurricane strike the Caribbean entire highlands are sometimes left without power. That's because there's usually just one power plant and one electricity grid pilot. So if that one grid goes down, the entire island can go dark for days weeks or even months. caitlyn bunkers with a nonprofit rocky mountain institute. She's Co author of a study that shows that one way to minimize this risk is to add renewables that are connected to micro grids. These systems can operate independently from the larger grid bunker. Says that after hurricanes. And Maria. We identified some examples in places like the British Virgin Islands. The Turkey silence where those installations came through the storms themselves. Okay and we're able to be providing power at least locally to the nearby buildings and infrastructure that needed power more quickly than the remainder of the grid, which took a bit longer to be able to restore and reconnect. Bunker. Says adding solar for example, would not only help islands recover after hurricanes it would also create new job opportunities. So renewable and decentralized energy can both provide jobs and strengthen the resiliency of the Caribbean.

What will be in the next stimulus bill?

What will be in the next stimulus bill?

"Get right into it. I, want to ask about the economic outlook to get numbers this morning on detail sale showing up pretty nice rebound in June. But then on the other hand, you have seventeen million Americans a still touring to unemployment insurance. And that you couple it with the epidemiological numbers I. Guess I'm just wondering, do you still see the baseline as a recovery in the second half of this year as I? Think you said back can. You highlighted a bunch of cross-currents it were trying to analyze and understand, and of course, the just an enormous amount of uncertainty and the uncertainty really stems directly with the you know the corona virus in the end pandemic and and how that behaves and and how effective and successful the efforts to contain it at the same time to bring the economy. Back up to full speed. So right now, the way I'm reading is still consistent with you know how you described and I've been talking about it. I, expect the second half to be a continued a period of economic recovery. But it's still you know we're in a very deep hole unemployment is over eleven percent. We have a long ways to go to get back to full strength My hope is is though that will continue to see positive signs of a gradual recovery over the second half. Half of this year into next year. But right now, this is camp critical inflection point. We're seeing these mixed signals in different states where the states where the case The number of new cases has been rising or definitely seen people back from going to restaurants, and in other things, wound states like where I am in New York around here, we are still seeing steady improvement in terms of people getting back to work and going out to restaurants and things like that. So it's IT'S A. Complicated situation and were watching all that you know high frequency data very closely to see what's going on. So, something that was interesting from the Beige Book, that was just released yesterday that in New York. This was the case in many other districts as well. Are there were stories of furloughed workers that have now been laid off permanently and I guess I'm wondering what you're seeing specifically in the second district covers New York Arts of new, Jersey Connecticut of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands. What are you seeing there? You mentioned also earlier this morning that you think it's going to essential for fiscal authorities. Quote, put cash directly in the hands of Americans based off of what you're seeing the district. What would that look like is that an extension of Ui maybe more picky P, for example. Yes. So what we are seeing and what I'm hearing is definitely that this obviously is a situation where a lot of employers don't have demand for their products and services whether you're restaurants or other. You know businesses They are having to to lay off workers despite their efforts, and despite the PGA and other programs have been there to provide a support of businesses and obviously to the unemployed. And households more generally. So I, I would take to kind of signals from what we're seeing is obviously, this is going to be a longer more drawn out period of getting through the pandemic I. think that you know work businesses are struggling because they don't have revenue state local governments are struggling because they don't have a tax revenue or other sources of revenue right now, and I do think an important lesson of the past few months, the federal actions and I really don't think of this is stimulus that really think of these actions to to help support Basically, grants and transfers to households and businesses has been absolutely critically important it's meant the people who've lost their jobs have been able to continue to pay the ramp of food on the table. It's also the pre program which you know is obviously had his challenges has been I've heard this from businesses or district has been effective and getting money to the small businesses. So they can keep going and hopefully come back. So my lesson from this disease have been effective tools. I'm not saying what Congress should or shouldn't do specifically, but this has been effective at dealing with the situation through July and I think you know are there are lessons to draw from bad in terms of? Guinness. The next six months. In, the meantime, the Federal Reserve has pin interest rates near zero. But I want to chat something fun. Now, forward, guidance right and I know that you can only speak for yourself. But what's your preferred method of messaging to the market? How long you will keep rates at zero bound especially now that there's been this discussion as the minutes of noted of federal. Reserve officials be playing around with the idea of an objective base or guidance that perhaps might be pinned to inflation, for example. Well as you know over the recovery period and the expansion following the global financial crisis, we did use for guidance pretty aggressively and I think very successfully starting in two thousand eleven. We did try different versions of. What we call, you know database versus you know contingent. Guidance and I think what the lessons from that is, you know win market expectations for the public understanding of what the Fed's likely to do gets out of sync with our own thinking for guidance has has proven to be helpful to help people understand how reviewing Monte policy. You know right now I actually think that are are the guidance we have in there, which is maybe more kind of descriptive informal or guidance his serving as well. So we do have some time to think about how we should. Should evolve that guidance is going as we go forward to me. The critical thing is, what's the problem we're trying to solve right now, we're still trying to fit you know all of us were trying to figure out where is the economy going today? Where is it likely to go in and learn from the experience of you over the next few months, and from that position, we can really I think considering and decide what's the best way to describe our thinking around the future path of a Monte policy. And, link that obviously. To our. Objectives of cheating the maximum employment and price stability goals. Now on inflation something. That's interesting that we're hearing from other Fed officials is where do you shoot the target as we know is two percent for the reserve. But what we've seen over the past recovery since is that that has been undershot on, which is hard to kind of stimulate inflation. How does that guide your thinking for

"Porter Rico glancing blow all we always Porter Rico happy about that U. S. Virgin Islands and not so much and now it's making tracks for the eastern coast of Florida and may may you get directly on a Miami and it's gaining strength in may his a category for which is pretty catastrophic all right back we go let me tell you about what's going on with the wall the wall the wall now keep in mind that the wall has such huge importance and it's not I don't think critically about keeping immigrants out well that's important as far as the trump administration it is far more important to his base that he is perceived as building the wall keeping his word and I have to tell you he's trying as hard as he can it's not for lack of trying a lack of enthusiasm and the reality now is hitting the trump administration prickly Donald Trump he has to get that wall up or a good portion of the wall of course as I get it the entire wall that becomes a physical impossibility but he has to be perceived as making real progress now in a talk to John about this tomorrow John Thomas I don't think that even if another foot of the wall is not built I don't think it's going to affect our trump relative to his base because I think all he has to do is be perceived as doing everything he can and is being stopped by a Congress that hates America and a media that is full of traders and even members of his own administration and the deep state that is doing everything it can to stop the building of the wall and I thought the part that I and when I first started to look at this I would really I he wants the wall black he wants the wall to be painted with a specific kind of black paint any okay come on guys really that's just an affectation because he woke up one morning and said I want a black wall for whatever reason signifies mum this is serious no no there's actually a reason for it I and it's kind of weird but an egg it does make sense first of all if you paint this the specific black is sort of a matte black not even a reflective black a matte black which absorbs sunlight any any gets much hotter and the argument is that the hotter the wall the harder it is to climb so he wants a wall not necessarily I should see wall aids but it's not a scripts heart but not now the heart works the frets well no that would be great too because they shreds makes sense for pre order so if your slippery yeah exactly harder Klein and so and by the way the wall does that too the black wall aid that pain is it works in such a way is that it's very slippery the heat is absorbed making it much tighter and I he also once at the tip by the way not just the wall he wants some pointed Hey once those at the top of the wall with a sharp point so you get to hurt yourself now is that yeah you know white people do I would put concertina wire up there anyway if you're gonna make Wallace gonna build a wall it's going to stop people from crawling over I mean it's not that hard to throw a thirty foot ladder up there and as a matter of fact I'm gonna argue that the sharp points make it even easier I had to crawl over what you want is something that you can't put a rope online you can't make it easy you know you turn tie you tie something or you take a whole book on to a point at stake so there is it just it's it's far more complicated and then of course the issue is still what kind of wall right you're not gonna plane I you're not gonna paint a block wall black a you could that doesn't do you any good so it's probably gonna be some kind of a metal wall or a combination of metal and the base maybe being concrete and he wants it to be slaughtered so you can actually see the outside you can see through it but you really can't see inside you know those slats you know a level or two that blinds you that we have shutters they do it at my house where you put it in such a way you can look outside but they can't see N. anyone something along those lines but he understands and gonna go back to the important part of this wall because it really doesn't matter how effective it is because there are ways of keeping on immigrants a matter fact I believe and doubt and aides are saying this course off the books you know off the record because that either are there they don't have the authority to speak or they're simply not going to speak publicly but they have said that the president or stand it's all about election day that's it nothing more what can I get done by election day I don't care what it is and understands by the way admitted the administration understands that the they're much better ways of dealing with illegal immigration then a wall back in fact if the money that would be spent on a wall is moved to more border patrol agents better technology now that's going to be used for example land mines all along the inside border the United States much like they do at the at the demilitarized zone where it's very difficult to cross the demilitarized zone because you walk across a debt that no man's land you get blown up yeah either probably not gonna do the blow up our day although man would that be effective huh Hey this is why I'm not in government all right this is why I'm behind the Mike and not in front of the capitol steps aids but it's not a shred it's hard but not as yet later on today incidently all I have a terrific story yeah I'd die eight o'clock and it's a true hi but not a straight story it's a success from scratch how does that connect you'll see it's gonna be hard but not a **** that is correct all right coming up we have a record cheap solar power coming in and boy you can't get better than that can

Okay. We have a twenty six foot sailboat, and it's called him on a whole and twenty six is doesn't sound super big. But it's also not small, but it's a perfect size for the lake. It allows us to have a maximum of six guests on board. There's plenty of room in the seating area where you're not crowded together and the six the six maximum is both for comfort with room to spread out a little bit safety. And that's also a a standard number of guests that you can take on your on your charter. That's that's true. Like, I said whether you're in corpus crispy or Tampa Bay air wherever that's just a standard maximum number of guests. You can have on board. So what we do is we pay where team my husband, David as a captain. And I am you're right. I'm the first mate or the crew. And what we do is. We do all we do all the work, quote, unquote work. And so we we get to do all everything and our guest just sit back and enjoy the ride so and and it works out great. Because a lot of our guests have never been sailing before. So I guess it gives them an opportunity failing like and even some guests have never even been on a boat alone of about. So it's been it's been a great fun experience to introduce failing to a lot of people. And actually we've seen people that have failed with us one season. And the next season they bought their own boats and they're waving at us from their own boat. We're sailing by. Time that probably makes you feel very successful doesn't it? It does we've affected people's lives. We've we've set them on a new journey and let them find a new passion. So just like what we have been. That's that was kind of an added benefit that we didn't even realize that we would get once we started this. Well, I was impressed with your qualifications. So talk about both your in David's qualifications. If you would. David has been failing much longer than I have. So he came to Oklahoma in. I think nineteen eighty four with the air force, and he was looking for a hobby. So he in a buddy started. They took win surfing windsurfing is a great way to start to understand the wind and how it affects your sales. But even though it wasn't a sailboat he was he had a crash course literally some days on how to operate and harness the win and from there. He got a Hobie cat, which is was a little pun tune. But with a trampoline in the middle again, it's a sailing vessel. And he introduced me to sailing at that point, and I fell in love with it. And so from there, we we continue to to play with the Hobie cat and two thousand three we took a sailboat charter in the US Virgin Islands where we lived on board a sailboat for a week. And that's when are true passion began for sailing. We just fell in love with. That we fell in love with Virgin Islands. And then when we came back we bought our own boat. And then that's when Hefner started, and you are certificates. I think is the right word because you have credentials as well. Yes, I do. I do David has gotten his U S coast guard, captain Bligh since which is really impressive is it's it's not an easy thing to pain. And so he's had that for several years now, and I have gone through courses through the American sailing association where I'm also qualified to be a captain. I just don't have the the coast guard license that so you've got to experienced people on board that know what to do. And how to keep our guests eighth. And so ever get everybody time as well. And I bet in Oklahoma. That's a thrill because the way our weather changes everything. Hand is insane. From the start of charter to the individual. You can have the wind changed three different times. And it can be challenging we've been up and said, it's actually harder to sail negatives in the Virgin Islands because the winds there are so steady and constant and article Homa wins can be a challenge for sure. So actually people probably don't realize it. But like Hefner has been rated one of the top ten in when sailing lakes and the US so arguable part of the like Wednesday night regatta people as well. We we don't we're so busy on the weekends. I'm sailing. And so we just we take the week off to recover and recuperate, but the they do that regatta at the boat club there on the lake and so there have been times when we're kind of watching it from the periphery on a Saturday 'cause they'll do it on Saturday afternoons as well. So we try to stay out of their way 'cause they take their racing very serious. And we're just out to have a good time. Now. How does Dave windsurf anymore? Not anymore. He gave it up when we got to be very busy with their like have ner. We just didn't have any time to to play otherwise that. So he he gave up his windsurfing for the for the the sailboat. I can understand that. I don't think he's I don't think he's upset about that. Did you ever windsurf? I didn't I tried it twice and got very frustrated and just gave it up. So I could him so dream chaser. Is a real big. Yes. Okay. Well, let me tell you what we're going. Do. I'm going to have to take a commercial break. But when everybody grab their pencil because Robin Hurley's going to be giving out information of how you can contact her. And even reserve your charter on like Heffer, I understand they fill up very quickly. So Robin Harley is my guest and the businesses sale lake Hefner at sale lake Hefner dot com. We'll talk with you more when we come back, and you can tell us about all the different options. Okay. Robin. Found good. Thank you so much. I'm going Falkender Lippert. You're listening.

So it would be nice to have a win since. Then since I wasn't old enough to even appreciate that one. It's hard to be greedy about the bowls because we had the greatest of all time, and we had a hell of a run.

"It's if we really want to see a Besse wold, we've gotta get good at this and the banks are on the front line of on their processes that they use of so much sympathy full because the gnome is all you've got his paper document from somebody five years ago, and even worse than that, the banks are often relying on another Bank, and that knows another Bank that knows another buying just because of how payments work. So if I'm trying to move. Money around through five different companies through if apple wants to move some of its money from island to the Virgin Islands or whatever it might have to go through three banks to do it. There's no one central source for all of that information. But yet the one Bank that you have a relationship with their entirely on the hook for all of that money laundering risk. And the only thing they've got to try and prevent is your passport, you're right, and the the reputational damage here for Danske Bank is huge. What was really nice about that was it harks back to alien the show, as well as the you sort of framed quite nicely, the implications of fallout in the human story, right? Because you know, you hear money laundering, and that's just to sort of abstract home and you kind of move on with the rest of your day. But actually considering that human soy in that full lives coin. Everything from terrorist financing to even geopolitics in sanctions, like being close to what's happening in preventing money laundering. Also, the way we try and prevent money laundering is to insert a paper process that creates financial exclusion. In other words, we increase the cost of doing business to such a point at which people count remit money home on to their family people cone simply go about and set up a business because it's so expensive for the Bank to set up that business account for them to be profitable because of the way they do it because of the paper process. The use that now you're preventing economic activity in a given country or preventing people who are in lower incomes, all people who are at risk from having. I would actually say that what what would be the solution? Because the thing is like this don's Coban Quan. I think in a way like even though the oversee that got in another people have coveted isn't as big of a deal anymore because we saw this happened with HSBC can t thousand twelve. We saw it with other big banks as well. That has still. At this point being fined billions for having a system that has enabled money laundering. And so, yeah, it gets really complex when you have subsidiaries as well. There is no global platform. Is that even possible with different regulation, different countries. And so when it comes to paper system, youngster confused by love to know like what would be an on incentives. Right? So the big reason why people don't governments don't come down. Extremely hold on money laundering is because if you come down on how to money laundering, you also come down hard on commerce and business in your economy. So you the only way to prevent fraud is to kill your income. I not tree that doesn't have to be the case because the assumption is the only way you prevent fraud is by preventing it the way you used to. And so I think it's a lack of nation to it's not tagging it to the upside of having prevented that. I think it's a, it's a sales pitch. So what I think three and I'm going to hold a candle out for a district would legit. I really do think that you need a way in which banks can match the transactions. They have the fundamental problem of. I need to know that what I see is the same as what you see is why we have compliance departments chasing pieces of paper around and that can come through standards compensation through groups like, and it can come through banks genuinely wanting to do it and seeing not only cost reduction, but increased sales because they're now able to sell to clients countries and customers that they otherwise can address in a profitable way. But that's a, that's going to be a hard shift. I, I'm dating with those kind of issues in emerging markets context. Am I see exactly those reconciliation? She's there are meant their manual in the mobile money world never mind in the Bank world..

"Pounds of food and water. Why wasn't the response for Puerto Rico? A United States are. Yeah. Don't care about Puerto Rico. I don't think that's fair, and I don't think it's fair like yesterday to compare them to a dictator. I think that is a dangerous place to be because it's too generous. That's comparing him to a Hitler. Someone that people start their people that orders for thousands of their own people to die. I think that President Trump was in the Oval Office saying, how can we make it worse for Puerto Ricans? Heck we make it some more people dot, you think that was actually happening in the White House? First of all, I don't. I would never commute anyways. He would. Anyone to Hitler because I think that is something that is is just unique until with self, but say it sick, tater ir, all the same. Yeah. I will say this. This president did not care enough at the time that this was happening. He was more concerned with NFL athletes protesting, and kneeling than he was concerned about what's going on. Was more concerned when you see someone the president leading his own citizens die and then turning around and saying that they didn't really die. I get that let every similar to the acts of a dictator. I the settlement. Say again. And I think. That is an extreme way to look at it. But this situation, what happened in Puerto Rico is far more complicated. It's not the president in there saying, I want this to let me ask you this. Why do you think he didn't do Jack for the Virgin Islands? The United States virgin ause no one is talking about that. No one is talking about the verge and all. Now, those are also American citizens. And do they vote in presidential elections? That's the key. Well, that may be the key. I don't know, but I do know that. Americans. Brown and white. Were. Looking for help for famous that did not really calm. And because no one has really done a lot of stories about the Virgin Islands. I suggest you don't take a look and see how much money they received from FEMA. They cannot voter US elections. Okay. So is all the water that we saw reported yesterday that was left and whose fault. I mean everyone's pointing fingers at each other, but the fact that you had thousands and thousands of boxes of water and you had truckloads of resources and food. It never ended up getting to the people that needed the most on the ground in Puerto Rico. That's heartbreaking. So glare gently, and we need to learn from that. We'll everyone's blaming a choke. I'm so glad you brought that up Abby because the Puerto because. That water that was not made available in the aftermath of the campaign, Puerto Rican authorities. Local authorities weren't even notified of its existence until April two thousand eighteen that land. Strip that we're taking a look at is on federal land. This fall squarely on the shoulders of FEMA and the lackluster and really grotesque response. What were the local field? What was their role? Ryan? They have just gotten hard McCain's that was. Was. Was it was poured nation between the two. It's so different than dealing with a hurricane that hits Texas or that hits more to where it's easy to get to. It's right there. You got locals that you communicate with check the responsible l. disaster relief. That's what's they're supposed to be their job either way. It's a horrific situation. It's heartbreaking and I think everyone of the stable can attend. The thing is stop tweeting, man. You're not helping you. Not stock.

"The bags back on the road. And read. It's go real good pass board. Amateur, traveler pursued six hundred and twenty. Today the amateur traveler talks about boots and beach bars, snorkeling and sugar factories pirates and of course rum. As we go to the Virgin Islands. Welcome to the mature traveler, your host, Chris Christensen if you didn't listen to the announcement in last week show, make sure you listen to the end of this show. When I have a important announcement for listeners, the show, especially listeners of the I tunes enhanced version. But first, let's talk about the Virgin Islands. I'd like to welcome to the show captain Shane McClellan from the sailing vessel, guiding light and the SV guiding light dot com website. Now, do I call you Shane or captain Shane, which would you prefer here? Oh, Shane. Okay, excellent. And you have come to talk to us about the Virgin Islands. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. I appreciate you having me now. First of all, this is going to be one. That's a little weird because when I say the Virgin Islands, what country I talking about. Virgin Islands. You are talking about two different countries in the US and the British, but the US owned portion is actually divided into the US Virgin Islands, and what we call the Spanish Virgin Islands, which are simply the islands, east of Puerto Rico in their own by Puerto Rico. Excellent. And why should somebody go to the Virgin Islands? Let's start with that. Oh, why not go to Virgin Islands. I mean, as long as you like beaches, son, snorkeling water, some of them pretty darn famous bars. It's just got everything you could want, including some wonderful hiking over on Saint John, just anything you want. I could probably find for you in the burgeon islands. Excellent. And we have done a couple of different shows on this destination, but it's been a while. I think the most recent when we did was on the case on the Spanish for journalists, but just on that island and we've done another show on the Virgin Islands, the British in the US and then way way back in the archives. You will find a show about experience that I did for my fortieth birthday. It was a dream trip, and that was a sailing ship, larger sailing vessel than you are taking around chain. But the old wind jammer barefoot cruise sailing ship, which one hundred, four passenger boat that we did through all three of those areas. And I say back when I was four. That's been a few years ago, but there is an episode way back in the archives of traveler about that trip. What kind of tannery do you recommend for the Virgin Islands will my experience and I've been in the Virgin Islands for the last seven years running charters. I run mine on a forty one foot catamaran, but I'm basically when I talk about charters, we're talking anything between forty and sixty foot crude or bare boat where you are in charge of the boat yourself. So we're talking basically a week where you do a loop around the British Virgin Islands, or you could do, which I prefer even more because of how its nature oriented, but going to loop around Saint John. And if someone has been Virgin Islands, but they were there on their big boat crews. And I say, big book cruise, just a distinguished from a small book critics which we are talking about. They've already done this so they don't need to listen to what you're talking about. It's going to be exactly the same right of course exactly. The same. The cruise ships are great in their wonderful in the islands in if you take one win, let's say you go to war tola. You are gonna have time to go to one destination is going to be a wonderful destination. But by doing that, what we're talking about today, you're going to be off to do all of these over a week and you'll go one day here. One day there and you'll be able to get so much more of an experience of the Virgin Islands, the BVI or Saint John, whatever it is verse the cruise ship. You're kind of rushed to go get that one thing you're gonna do. Let's say in the b. I, it's the bass is the most popular Russian to get there. You're going through real quick following Graham on everybody else in the rush back where a lot of you come with me. I have my own special route through the bass, and most of my fellow captains have their own special little feature in the Bassett they do. And it really. Just shows you something away from just doing a conga line through to sensually, which is what happens when the cruise ships are in? Well, I suspect and we'll get to this, but you're probably going to take us to some places to that big boat can't go. So where are you going to take? Let's start with the British Virgin Islands and a typical trip. We usually start going to Norman island in from air. We skip Peter island, although that's going to change and we can talk about that a minute, why? But which get Peter and we go to Cooper, which is very popular from there. We go up to virgin Gorda. We do the bass at the southern end in we do the north sound up at the north end, and that's where you're bitter in your SABA. Those type of places are and in from there, we sell out to anegada which is completely different than all the other Virgin Islands. And then we have a long relaxing sale back over to Joost Van Dyke and we party at FOX's in soggy dollar. That's usually about a week, and we end up back in Saint Thomas and drop you off. Excellent. Okay. Now let's go through that a little slower. You're starting in where are we in road town or typically I pick up in red hook at the east end of Saint Thomas because people can fly into sing Thomas a lot cheaper than they can be. I out whether that makes sense. Sure. And I must say typically, and this is probably sixty percent of my guests at one and do this. It wanna do the BVI and then we can come back and talk about some other alternative routes, but will spend night on the north side of Saint John. I really like water Limine key. Most of the time people are getting in and by the time they get to the boat, it's two thirty, three o'clock. We spend an hour to get over there. They've been travelling all day and we're there by four. Everybody can jump in the water and just relax. Don't even necessarily snorkel. They just wanna decompress. So they jump in the water. We have a cocktail for the evening, and I cook dinner, and it's just very relaxing night to let everybody relaxed from trout. Cooling and then just expand on that a little bit. So we flew into Saint Thomas to Charlotte Amalia and again, this is one of the big or cruise ship ports, and so that's why the flights are cheaper. There are a lot of people coming to Saint Thomas, but you're then immediately taking off heading over to Saint John, the other major island while the other of two major islands in the US Virgin Islands. And that one being mostly covered by national park gratitude thirds of national park and the bay that we're apt to Waterloo key is really cool because you can do about a mile even call it a hike is it's just a flash real, a mile walk. And I can give them a Pistorious tour through Annenberg sugar factory, which is a ruins. It was the most successful sugar factory had the largest windmill. So you have that right there. You got garrison up the hill. You have a what we call a great house in Americans would know more as a plantation home and you have that. Up the hill. You had this little island, it's called Waterloo Mckee, dust the name of that bay and snorkeling around it is some of the best examples of soft corals can show people. So even just in this first bay, there's still much that people can do and they usually don't get to all of his. They're like, what is great, but we wanna see more stuff. So it's just a fantastic places start off charter. Okay. And when you talk about water lemon key and always have trouble pronouncing that word being spelled CA, we're talking about a place that isn't as acceptable, not by boat. There's not the major road that goes there as there is for trunk bay. For instance, where if I'm on excursion from a cruise ship, I'm probably gonna head there because the buses go there. If you wanna get to water limit by road, you would have to park Annenberg sugar factory and point eight to one mile to get over to the beach. Got it. Okay. So we're already off. Off the beaten path of of the major tourism at that point? Correct. Excellent. And then where would you hit us the next day? The next day unfortunate. We gotta take your red tape and bureaucracy to start off with. So we have to go over to silvers whole to check into the British Virgin Islands is it's not it's own country, but it is part of the Britain in we're part of the US. You have to check into the British Virgin Islands, and that's not terribly exciting. But after that we do get to go to Norman island, which has some wonderful snorkeling with the Indians which are essentially for Roxette stick about the water. One side is ten to fifteen feet deep. The other side drops fifty feet straight down. So it's it's very, very popular and call it the number one snorkel site in the British Virgin Islands, but it's worthy of that description. It's beautiful colorful in just wonderful. Now, last time. I was on Norman island. I think there was one building there. I don't know if that has changed over the years. Well, let me let me get to that. The other snorkel spy is the caves. Yeah. Amen. Besides her three caves that you can actually swim into and you're not going under water there, watering swim in, but what is fun historically is the Norman island was the inspiration for the book treasury limber, Robert Louis Stevenson, and those caves are the caves in the book. It's very loosely based on the island, but we what we have is that it's based on that island. We should say there's at least three different stories that I know of where Treasure Island is based on this is the story they tell, at least in the BBI's. This is. Right there and everybody seems to eat it up and it seems to make the most sense. If you look at the map in the book, it's not perfect, but things line up pretty good.
