Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised
"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.
A Look at Police Body Cam Technologies, and Where They Fall Short
"The nationwide protests over the killing of George, Floyd brought many things alight from racial inequality to police brutality. One issue that's come back to the forefront is whether or not police body cams are effective tools to hold officers accountable. I'm Roger Jiang. This is your daily charge with me senior video producer Butch Kerry who was a video out today discussing this various you welcome bridget. Thanks for having me. So body cameras really spiked popularity with the police back between fourteen talk about what really sparked this move answer where we are today yeah. It really began with Michael Brown because when he was shot by a white police officer in two thousand fourteen, there was no video footage to show it happened in the officer didn't face charges. So the family came out and Please request thought you know there's a movement that police can wear body cameras that was pushed even further by President Obama also saying that this should be the change for the future. Then there were federal grant setup to help departments pay for them. So you did have this big increase in police departments trying to help their relationship with the community and saying, Hey, we're going to have body cameras now but I mean that was present fourteen and I feel like we're still at the same place which. Is why I wanted to do this report and look into how do they work and why are we still at the same place and it really comes down to how different departments are using the cameras zero zillion talk a little bit about that and just to give our listeners a sense of how broadly there used. I, know you mentioned those grants to the Justice Department awarded place apartments in thirty states more than twenty three, million dollars for body Cam. So how many police officers actually use them? That the data right now, when you look at the statistics, it's looking like about half of our nation right now has officer some way or another obviously is hard to be exactly of small apartments, large departments but right now the idea looks like about half the country has law enforcement wearing some kind of camera or has tested out cameras some. In some way I, mean issues basic the you have officers wear cameras people will change their behavior when they know they're being recorded right there's more trust now when they're when there's a cameras more accountability these really lofty goals for one piece attack at there have been a few snags along the way. Of them being cost of storage because you have all these officers recording when they come into a situation every day. So figure, every officer has maybe three or four hours of recording everyday they have to store in the cloud. Well, how long are they storing that and how much is needing to be saved It's all different depending on every single up police department. So sometimes, it's months sometimes years and you're looking at costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. One department only had five police officers in the little town of Nebraska, and they were looking at something around fifteen grand. A year and this is like not folk is not feasible for every department to pay this because those those grants we talked about they don't cover ongoing storage costs. So some departments have been pulled out of using them because they don't see it's it's useful for them to be paying for it because the storage storage is definitely issued cost is an issue. These unforeseen costs are a real. Red Flag but bring it back to you know the ultimate idea that these cameras were supposed to bring accountability and to prove relations with the community was twenty and we're still protesting about police brutality Take things are worse than they ever are they have been. So what happened how did they fail to accomplish that goal? I wouldn't call them an outright failure, but it certainly is a failure in A. Couple of aspects one It goes back to how these tools are being used for one A officers have the ability for the most part right now to start and stop the recording on their own because they they really feel like you should have that kind of freedom. Do you really want a camera to be always turned on in every instance? No not when you're visiting someone at the hospital Having a private conversation or just you know having your lunch that said, what are the punishments if you don't hit that record button when you were supposed to or finding that there isn't a lot of incentive to do the right thing or I should say you know punishment if you miss a recording when you're supposed to at least that's what a lot of the researchers I talked to were saying that. If if you don't activate your camera, you know what's the consequence for that That's that's one area that's missing. Other area that that's missing is how can the public get access to this footage to be accountable? You countless studies have been done, and most recently they looked at all the studies and said, all right. What's the data we're seeing that there are fewer complaints against police officers. That's a good thing. We're seeing that police officers have footage to say, Hey, look I was justified that this was a false complaint against me. Great cameras are showing the truth in different aspects but a cameras show every angle of the story that happened and the cameras only as good as being able to release the footage. So some researchers I talked to said. We WanNA. See more data on can the public access when they want to receive some change now in New York City the mayor said that anytime now there is an incident where someone killed or seriously injured they will release footage but for a while there was this law that said, they don't have to release anything. We'll as a camera that you know. So so that's really the problem. I it comes down to not having a uniformed a set of rules or standards on win. This footage can be released in how it can be used. To the point of consistency, you mentioned New York City Mayor de Blasio a changes law he's fairly alone. He's he's sort of serve an isolated case right? Because the the rules are very greatly I don't think there's any kind of national mandate to be more transparent about when they released this footage ride, we're starting to see changes win the public points, their camera at a situation and out that officers didn't have their cameras turned on over in. Louisville when there was a shooting at the restaurant owner those officers who did not activate. Their cameras were put on leave a might my questions are okay they're put on leave but they're suspended. Where are you know the the more serious deterrence there? You know what's happening people are losing their jobs over it out win when government realized that the spotlight's on them you know but we have to look at what's going on in terms of using them. There is some technology though that is kind of starting to change that part of it like having a camera automatically turn on when it senses something's happening it could be win a Taser guns pulled out of a holster. It could be also not so serious like when it detects a police vehicle going at a certain speed or detects other kind of check marks author software so that Way If an officer is in the heat of the moment and can't remember to turn on their camera. It does it for them There's also talk about live streaming. So some of the cameras are able to have a superior back at home base tap into what that officer is seen in real time. That is a great advantage. When something serious is going down, they get a real time feedback. But. It's something that they're also can be push back with with police unions going wait a second I don't want someone seeing what I'm doing all times I don't live streaming only a few departments really have started to use livestream I. Think Cincinnati was one of the first that used the teaser brand of version of livestream on their cameras, and that was just February so very early for that technology but there's a lot of talk about that.
Malaysia court sentences ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak to serve up to 12 years in jail for crimes linked to 1MDB scandal
"Court has found former Prime Minister Najib Razak guilty. He's been sentenced to 12 years in prison. This was in his first corruption trial connected To the plundering of the so called one Mdb State Investment fund. This is part of one of the largest most far reaching financial scandals in history involved at least 10 countries, including the United States, Michael Sullivan reports. Things could have gone a lot better for Najeeb today, the judge finding him guilty on all seven counts of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and three counts of money laundering in a trial widely seen as a test of Malaysia's commitment to the rule of law. I think it's a good day for Malaysia. Bridget Welsh is a research associate with the University of Nottingham. And an expert on Malaysian politics. Speaking from the capital, Kuala Lumpur, This decision actually re affirms that the rule of law is working. The judge was very careful and laying out his decision, and I think that there was set the sense that the decision move forward in a very uncertain political environment and the judiciary. At least this has ruled the day and with that there has been a sense of justice. Now Jeeves Fall from Grace has been swift just two years ago. Then Prime Minister. Najib's party was dealt a shocking defeat in the general election, in part because of the public's discussed with one MDB scandal, which saw billions siphoned off from the government investment fund into individual bank accounts, including prosecutors say Najib's The Jeep has maintained his innocence and said on Facebook last night that he was misled by others and that the charges against him are political in nature. It's going to be a long process of appeals and their two more paces, and it may be a number of years, but you know he will basically not be allowed to contest the election. During this process, and that's important, Brigitte Wolf says, and helps Malaysia's current prime minister Modena seen who heads a shaky coalition that includes Najib's party. She says Mujahideen will gain the most from today's rulings because he will be seen as putting the country before politics malicious restoring its reputation internationally, and it used to be in the top 10 countries for corruption. Now this makes it stand tall, and I think that is that really serves Malaysia well for NPR
Change in Dominican Republic as opposition wins presidency
"Let's go to the Dominican Republic now where the victory by the opposition part in this weekend's elections has marked the end of sixteen years of rule by the Dominican Liberation Party. The P. L. D.. The newly elected president Louis Shabina dare managed to capture fifty two point fifty three percent of the vote, well earlier I was joined on the line from the Dominican Republic's. Republic's capital not Sunday Domingo by bridget wooding, who's the director of the think tank, Obi m I, see a or center for immigration, observation and social, development in the Caribbean bridget started by giving us a bit of context and explaining just how significant the results are very significant, because we're talking about change after sixteen years of ruling party and we're talking. Talking about an almost exact reversal of what happened in the elections for years ago when the President Danilo Medina got in with sixty one percent of the vote against thirty four percent of our be now there, and as you mentioned now I've been there has with the fifty percent needed and Danilov menace stouffer. His candidate from the ruling party got only thirty four percent. percent or so of the vote, so if we're looking at something, which is which is very significant, all the way along President Medina had sought to transfer his popularity to his chosen candidate on solid casteel, but in fact council steel was probably the weakest candidates that he had because unsubtle casteel was involved with public works, which has been notorious for different corruption scandals. But then the President Danilo Medina thought that with Kobe nineteen. He would have things in his favor. There would be a kind of swath vote for the way. He was dating with things, but that was not to be because. Since January two, thousand, seventeen, this being the Green March movement against corruption, and the fact that disparities between rich and poor had been rolling, and there were a number of journalists who actually lost their jobs trying to denounce this, so this became a big issue, the government, totally of note, the evidence and the president. Medina also took further actions to control the judiciary, but what also happened was that the former president Leonel Fernandez split from the ruling party, and that divided what had been a pretty Monolithic party up over the last sixteen years, and he did it by suggesting that certain casteel the nominee President Medina had been put in by false means. But there was a thought that were things to go to a second round up. The ex-president learn finance might have gone in with with consol. But what was the most decisive thing that happened this year was that on the sixteen to February nineteen elections, there was a glitch and e-voting could not take place, and so, what happened then was that the elections were. Left right and center, but this was corruption. And especially, the millennials who had begun to take to the streets along with other you know in many Latin, American capitals so in recent months, really caught a bit between their teeth and the middle class, which had kept the ruling party in power for sixteen years, suddenly began to feel that they've been robbed up the wrong way. The things were things were unraveling now. The government you know is the country's largest employer, but even those that it was keeping in their pay when along a satisfied. Feeling change had to happen, and that was the ticket on which the new president has got in and posted to surprise then I mean it was clear that the tide was turning, but did you ever think that actually he would overturn the sixteen years of Monolithic rule I think all the more recent polls have shown that he's definitely in the lead. I think what was worrying. was that at the last minute that Kobe number? would be used as a cover to dissuade more middle class voters perhaps from going to vote, and also the usual tactics of paying people to vote or giving people handouts prior to elections this time it didn't work with the with the exception perhaps of the government in some of the poorest province near the border, but it didn't work the because people were determined the change and I think this is. Of what's happening in a number of Latin America where people do feel the need for change, and corruption is a big issue, and people feel that it should be tackled also covid nineteen demonstrated again the dispatch between rich and poor because those people who. Are Not documented migrants people have been nationalized. He had don't have access to government programs, and this doesn't look good in the face of the sustainable development goals. It doesn't look good in the face of the international community, so something was going to break I think, but nevertheless I think. People woke up. Fight surprised that it had happened so smoothly and things didn't go to a second round. This Sunday. Do you think that people would just then voting against the status quo, or was there something specific that abner was offering? What made his campaign so successful? I think he was really offering to clean things up, and so if you the bar next to my house today after elections happen, it was saying the whites have gone got in his Richmond from the cradle. They don't need to rob. So, there was the sense that. That These were people who have. had a different kind of agenda, and all walks of life seeing that. that there have been just too much of a monolithic hold on every aspect of society and under change was necessary, but I think the corruption thing was important, and then the fact that normally elections happen on the no glitches, but this glitch that happened in February with the elections and the feeling that there was something going on under. Probably the think was more likely with the incumbent party. I think those were the two decisive things that make people think. Yeah, we do need a change and finally bridget. What can we expect from his presidency? What will apart obviously from corruption be the main issues on the agenda? Well, obviously we have a big health crisis on our hands, and as you can see the Dominican probably is one of the worst countries in the insular. Caribbean and the election mobilization hasn't held so I think we're going to have to go back to the state of a state of emergency. The new governor will also be slightly tied in terms of how far it can go in more imaginative on policy, more imaginative domestic policy because it did do a deal in this S- i Brown with some of the more ultra nationalist sectors of society, and so they're going to have to reckon with that. I think trying to was cleaning up corruption, trying to create more jobs and trying to ensure the disparities between rich and poor are not sensu it'd such that in this pandemic. All can be served healthwise and in future crisis, people are not going to be discriminated one way or another. And that was bridget. Lots of background birdsong on the line from Santa Domingo.
Did the algorithm make you watch Tiger King?
"And Its origins Netflix's Tech Company it invested heavily in homegrown software like its recommendation algorithm that helps you find shows. You'd WanNa Watch because if you don't. You might not keep paying thirteen bucks a month for it especially since there are a lot of other streaming options vying for your time and your money. But now NETFLIX's considers itself. A media company is investing huge amounts of money, making its own TV shows and movies, and it's not entirely clear how the company balances those priorities where draws the line between making you happy and making good on its own investments. The only people who really know what's going on with Netflix's recommendations work it. Netflix's the Peter and I wanna see what we learn about the system. If we simply watched how its recommendations changed over time, so we tried a little experiment. Could bridget at wants us to verify the account. Because Daddy. Three, seven, zero, six, zero four. Back in December Peter. And I created brand new NETFLIX's accounts. Both of us have been using Netflix's forever, and my recommendations are totally messed up from family and friends using my account. Well, actually it's my partner's account, but Peter and I wanted to see what happens when Netflix's doesn't know anything about you and how the changes that learns more about you. NETFLIX's wants to know three. That I like from selection of things, they're offering me pick breaking bad. Verse! A narcos, which is a Netflix show here we are at the beginning of our experiment before Netflix's really knew anything about our tastes. All Right? We're at the top picks Peter. This is the Netflix's algorithm telling me what I might like to be fair. We've only told it. I like three things. So, this is the least smart it's going to be. This is the most dumb it's going to be. Wanted WanNA. Tell us what the first pick is The Adventures of shark boy and Girl. I happen this is your child. After our first session, the recommendations were not good, so I'm assuming because I told her that like spider man spider verse, which is genuinely great movie. telling me I WOULD WANNA watch. Shark boy and lava girl. A few months later we tried again after we'd watched and rated a whole lot more stuff and it started stressing some really good stuff, but there's still a lot of things that really didn't fit our tastes. They really want me to watch new girl. Made by Fox, no longer on the air on Netflix's West Wing. I would definitely watch an episode the West Wing here and there. I mean it's cars have already watched, but I would watch it again. Parks and REC I've never seen an episode. So soothing. It's a good show. Yeah, and then again in April. We reviewed our recommendations for a third time. NETFLIX's figured out that because I watch comedies like Portland area the office development that it should recommend low stakes easy to watch shows like the. Documentary now and middle ditch and Schwartz.

New York congressman caught on hot mic at protest event: "If I didn't have a primary, I wouldn't care"
"Christina of all the Democrats in the New York City congressional delegation and officially they're all up for re nomination tonight why is Eliot Engel the wind who's the biggest target for the progressive wing who in fact in New York City New York times says is the most endangered incumbent in America well I think that you know angle is has been framed as is absentee on the job and I think that we walk around the district and we talked to quite a few voters they think that he's spending far too much time in Washington DC and is essentially lost touch with his community and his constituents over the three plus decades he's been in office and so we remember twenty eighteen and that's how A. O. C. was able to be successful by doing the hard work pressing the flesh pounding pavement knocking on doors and articulating a message in a vision for the district why should we be one of the poorest districts in you know not just New York state but in the country why should we have someone who seems as though he's more concerned with his friends and colleagues in Washington DC if not of the residents of New York and so that compounded with just a few weeks ago when congressman Engel was caught with a hot night essentially saying you know I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a primary I think those those factors all present the interesting night that we just Macy I have that clip and I'm gonna play it this is a gaffe caught on an open Mike made by angle that might be impacting this race he was waiting for his turn to speak at a black lives matter of police reform rally when he said when everyone else if I didn't have a primary I wouldn't care and here's a short sound bite of Bowman for people who haven't heard his voice reacting to angle because he hasn't run a strong campaign that's connected with the people and and is built on deep relationships and love for the community all we could do is attack can send mailers and and take this dark money and you know and run these commercials but the people know the difference to people know we're rooted in love and support and that what that will never go away so so Bridget the hot my calf I wouldn't care if I didn't have a primary there is a possible benign explanation for this in the context of the crowded stage he was on and that's that he didn't mean he wouldn't care about the issue he wouldn't care about making sure he got the microphone time if he didn't have a primary it is that when he says he meant and how big a deal has this proven to be so far if you could tell you know I think the challenge with this as of course comes after some reports about how angle was so absent from the district throughout the corona virus pandemic and so once those stories were have been out there and that that issue became an issue in this race and then we had George Floyd killed by police protests in the streets and then this black lives matter protest it it is a difficult hot Mike moment to explain away and PS why does anybody think that Mike's are non when they're in front of them maybe were radio people so we just always assume the make it a lot but like you know you would think it was not this is a long serving representative at a public event and so the the setting and the timing and and all of these factors just made for a bad situation but this is a fascinating race to watch the book the Bronx Westchester stir border and and how did the vote is going to play out on either side of this district you know I'm still seeing tweets as of now showing lines at poll sites in Yonkers earlier this morning Brian on your show when I was on and you had a voter who couldn't find his poll site we I followed up with with Bruce and he was a voter in Yonkers and he after we after we found out that the Westchester County Board of elections polls that look up function was not working we called we found out where his full site was it sounded like it was a a new location for him and then he told the board of elections after that he was going to vote absentee and then he was told much to my chagrin that he couldn't do that because the postmark deadline was for the day before and so I had to tell them no act you can still vote today so a lot of confusion up

"The applications has closed we ate Bridget how many reject honestly Bridget already knows about these numbers better than I do so the number of applicants were in the upper three three hundred so bad three hundred three hundred four hundred something like that remember that our program was set up to help small businesses that had not gotten gotten a relief from the federal government through the PPP programme and so we we were clearly targeting those that you know are very small and missed an opportunity so well the good news is that I think we did a really good job of hitting our target E. and beyond that the numbers that we saw related to minority businesses is very high and women owned businesses very high and so we hit the target the question is can we and should we take so if there are additional resources left given those numbers do we need to change the criteria a little bit to continue to help just you know just a little bit too embrace and and really allow for more businesses to get some of this relief and so that's something we're looking at but we wanted to get through this first round first so that was the whole point of doing a first round and then potentially second round and applicants been informed whether they've read they will receive the rounds or is that still pending I would have been informed that they are now in the verification process or if they are ineligible so either they're eligible to move forward or in eligible and meeting our criteria and right now I'm small businesses are uploading verification.

Adam Hirsch and Priscila Andrade are the owners of Exodus bagels. They're married and they live right up the hill from the cafe with their two kids and while they've been carefully watching the news of the unfolding corona virus crisis at that moment. Their biggest cause for alarm was that they were fresh out of diapers for their baby mirror on Monday march ninth. The World Health Organization held a news conference about the outbreak. Most countries still have sporadic cases. We must all take heart from that. That director general sounded measured. The bottom line is. We're not at the mercy of the bias. In early March the coronavirus pandemic that was unfolding and China and spreading across Europe still felt like international news. It was happening far away and then suddenly. It wasn't Wednesday march eleventh the. Who declares the coronavirus outbreak a global? Pandemic W Joel has been assisting this outbreak around the clock and we're deeply concerned.

Go to get wines dot com slash proof for fifty dollars off your first order so one of the things that I found really challenging during this crisis is to make sense of all the numbers that were constantly being inundated with. This is our executive producer. Caitlin Kelleher I heard somebody describe it as like a never ending ticker tape of gloomy numbers and that really resonated for me. It's like the magnitude and the scale of the numbers is really hard to hold in your mind. And then when he comes to the restaurant industry specifically the numbers there are huge and they're really bleak. I saw one industry survey that said eight million restaurant. Jobs have disappeared around the country and projected eighty billion in lost revenue just in March and April but the thing is behind the numbers and the headlines. Real people I I met. The owners of eggs is bagels. Adamant PRISCILA THROUGH MY FRIEND. Tammy a big fan of their bagels. And they're just really great people so when. I saw post on instagram announcing that they were closing a reached out to them and I asked if they let me document their experiences restaurant owners through this pandemic and they said
Dayton's Road to Pandemic Recovery
"We've been taking a look around the country at how different cities or dealing with the fallout from the pandemic. Today we head to Dayton Ohio unlike other places Dayton hasn't been a hot spot for the coronavirus and the death toll has been low but the pandemic is just the latest in a series of struggles. The city has faced in the past year our reporter Doug Belkin visited the city recently and joins me now Doug Dayton Ohio has been through a lot in recent years even before the pandemic from natural disasters to rising numbers of deaths the OPIOID crisis. Can you tell us a little? Bit more about the position Dayton was in before the pandemic it. It's a fascinating town. It really punched above. Its weight for a long time. Many years ago it was a home of a lot of innovation. The Wright brothers came from there there are a lot of major manufacturing companies and engineering companies that really employed thousands of people and built a Beautiful City in the early twentieth century. The housing stock is really lovely. But it fell on hard times. A lot of those companies moved south to chase cheaper labor and the revenue into the city declined significantly and then they had really hard shock. The financial crisis in two thousand and seven and eight pulled a lot of jobs out that didn't return and then the opiate crisis that was really ground zero. It's a lot of highways going in and out of Dayton and it made it a kind of a pitstop for these drugs and they were just hundreds and over the years. Thousands of people who overdosed from opioids. So they were very hard and then last summer they had a string of horrible tragedies. They had a tornado that wiped out part of the town and killed people they had A mass shooting in downtown shopping district that killed nine people and injured another twenty people and they had a Klu Klux Klan rally Which really hard for the people there so last year was very difficult moment for them and all of that brings us up now to the pandemic and Ohio responded to the coronavirus pandemic with one of the nation's strictest lockdowns how has the corona virus now impacted Dayton and our elected officials grappling with it so the virus itself has not taken deep root there the shutdown or have been very effective or at least the pandemic did not make huge inroads. There's been about fifteen people who've died in Dayton of a city of one hundred forty thousand six hundred confirmed cases so the sickness has been. You know it's the specter has there but the fear was a major problem in the shutdown and the economic implications of the shutdown have been dramatic. And what we wrote about in the story was a lot of of what that's done to the economy to the people in the town to the churches in the town and even to the revenue of the city. And how they're gonNA deal with it and how they're sort of handcuffed because they will have less revenue to keep their social safety net strong so we spoke to the mayor of the City Nan. Whaley WHO's trying to lead the community through this and this is what she had to say. And when since we all become mayors because you can see directly the impact you make you get to make decisions and you have this control but the more you do it the more you realize the less control you really have. So what she's talking about here is the fact that these these tragedies that happened last summer in the pandemic it's going on now are all national and international issues. The handgun issue is a national problem. The racism issue that the KKK was part of is obviously a national issue tornadoes. That came through As part of the change in climate and this pandemic as part of a global problem and one thing that they all have in common that the mayor belief is that the federal response has not been robust enough to help cities and towns and they are ending up dealing with these problems by themselves with much smaller resources than the federal government. Has IT Doug? You also spoke to members of the Dayton community. What did you hear from them about how they're coping right now? So a lot of folks were really knocked back on their heels by the shutdown A lot of business owners you know. Obviously they shut down their businesses and they were concerned that they wouldn't be able to restart them and a lot of folks were laid off from their jobs. I spoke to one woman named bridget. Hadn't who has had to dig into her children's college savings account to get by these last few months. And here's bridget. I think this is going to Their their futures. They're gonNA come out of this with a lot of debt Things that they shouldn't have to endure at their ages. I planned for this. I planned in plan for this so that they wouldn't have to do this and now I'm giving into their college funds just to be able to survive day to day and we know that the people around the country are digging into their children's college savings account to get through these periods of unemployment. This is a national issue. And it's it's playing out in Dayton along with everyone else and a big question that all of us are grappling with now is what happens next when the pandemic is over and and what does our new normal look like. Here's mayor naturally again in what she had to say about that. I do think during the tragedies of Dayton last year I did feel the region really come together to support the city. The city center which was very special. I worry that that could go away. Because of the WACO vid puts people in their corner really fast both politically and like literally in the corner. You know in their home. Dave chapelle lives in that area. The wonderful comedian and he gave a show after the the mass shooting to help bring the community together and to heal the community and one thing that the mayor said was that that's not possible now. People can't gather here show so she asked. How do you heal a community? That's gone

Okay let's get into bridget. Welcome back to accelerate. Andy Yes said it feels like Old Times. You know some some guests on the show where it as a badge of honor that they've been on like three times or four times or five times you've been on over out over one hundred times like I'm I'm I'm the I'm the houseguests that doesn't leave. That's been perfectly fine. Well we want you to visit more frequently. Well we'll see bets amazing over one Hundred Times. Yeah for people who may be more. Recent listeners and converts to the show is. Bridget was on used to be on at least once a week. If not more sometimes and for a period of three or four three years three and a half years something like that. So Yeah Andy. It's amazing we had a well. I it's amazing. We had so many things to talk about. But but maybe not. I think we've kind of like recycle over a lot of topics just fine. Actually you know when you go back and look at the statistics. Is that many of the episodes that bridge and I did together we. We call them frontline Fridays because they came out on Fridays. And we're talking from the frontline of sales we're still some more popular episodes over the history of the show over seven hundred and fifty five episodes so bad you know. I think maybe being on the front line it's misery loves company and I didn't see misery because I love what I do like I choose to be on the front line church frontlines but there is. I think there's a lot of intensity there's a lot of pressure. There's a lot of things happen lines so you need you. Kinda need your people around you issued going through it so I think there's probably part of that. It's it's kind of the collective community coming together. Yeah I was one of your people and likewise all right so it's a question for you so I just I was just reading a new book which one from Mark Hunter called a mind for sales. So do you have a mind for sales? I've doing it for so long. Why me but as it feel intuitive you know feel like it's just natural or it's.
Batouly Camara: Awakening in purpose
"A young athlete. I would say the bars set pretty high. The first time I ever saw women play Played on old boy. Seen when I start playing basketball I was introduced to the game by woman but the first game I ever went to the WNBA GAME. Sounds like me so it was like Here in our from probably one hour thing and all girl play Basketball Naseen. Hulo Professional League ignorance is bliss so I would say it was definitely suggests reach my potential. I don't think I ever really said I saw WNBA. I loved it but I think it was to work to kind of reach mile potential with my biggest goal. At that moment I started ages twelve to two things on that day for you said the retail potential. You know so at eight to twelve. What did that look real? Potential potential. Just Matt being at the peak of of my career because when I went to the game what I loved the most was the diversity I saw a core and how every body and just being a young inquisitive curious kid I went from seeing Kia Vaughn. Who's like six five to like? Leilani Melanie Mitchell. Like you know five six. And she's fine with two nasty and I'm like they're not the same but they've all kind of reached their potential in some way. Some regard are now that I'm older Still playing still working on their craft. But at that moment it wasn't about comparison is about personal growth. But once you reach your personal growth you can then get to. The highest level is a lot so when you have the game like I want to be on that day I wanNA share the court in. I WANNA know papillon whatever may be. How do you think I'm GonNa go achieving that it was just this sense of actually had a podcast with my coach? Taught me how to make like a a layup as you say you just have this kind of hunger about you and again. It was just as curiosity. I didn't know I didn't know any of those players didn't know anyone at that level but I just remember how much it it bugged me inside. We know nights where would turn. And I didn't know who go to our coaches at that point in a you in Eugene was so far away but they really allow me to focus on day to day. So that's why did I focused on the day to day and just really just trying to put in as much work as I can control. Though I've learned from like the guests every on that lobby will have today on idolized. You know that might become emulate their game. You Watch like I WANNA learn their moves. It was definitely I say growing up Having older brother the account and learn about the men's game so my brother loved Hakeem he always talked about him. Entering accused dream. You know growing up in a Muslim household. You know the keenest fate than what he stood for. That was initial draw but as I became more fan in sunny if it works that he accused Work in all the grades he's taught than us aren't look more about women in my more and I just remember watching 'em in the final four in little wayne was on the sideline and it was kind of this weird thing where I just loved jives and she just seemed like she's having so much fun with it. Saudi young age I WANNA. I played really admired economy. Idle and at. What point did you think like you? I'm pretty good at this ball like I can. May I have a channel teaching my potential never after like it's definitely a journey but I would say probably junior year high school? I remember walking into? We have open gym. You know humor coaches come in at that point. I was out of okay you know. Tunisia was okay. And we walk in and we have over. I want to say twenty five college coaches and these are just hide the coaches so he has stanford that day Yukon. We had Kentucky all in this building and it was about five of my teammates. Three of us. Who ARE REALLY GOING TAB? The one and so it was kind of surreal feeling as a young kid but one that didn't take lightly. I was nervous. You know I wanted to be good. You WanNa why to perform It was kind of in that moment whereas like all Kayla avalon way to go. But we're taking baby steps now to what kept you grounded Theme like Kentucky is the part that really ongoing even kill. What kind of help you day. You know that it always more than technology do more. I would definitely say the people. I was surrounded by they even from a young age like for example when I was fourteen. That's what I went to Blair Academy and that's Kinda where really developed my skills who I am was a person and one of my teammates. Her name is bridget and a net. Infamy this core group seniors who just had great might. You were now walking into the gym and for me. I was a freshman. I was good. You not do it I wanNA and they shut it down. Bridget graduated top of her class at West. Point so talk about someone with discipline and so she was just very adamant about the process and they will get every day for six. Am workouts on. Like talk to me if I did it and say you know you need to be there so constantly always telling me you've never arrived at his journey and my mentor. The same way. Schnee saying you know you've never robbed it journey in their quick to say you know this which means getting better on With celebrate knee. But also telling me what I need to do better. You never arrive there. The journey That deep at the can take value from two. You know just that you can always return another level. He Never GonNa GonNa read them mountaintop. Yes absolutely yeah so when Tom Day. Chew that college could you? You know you were a one Top Not by one or two on the team so they wanna give you ever that. That's really what you're like number two I in the shooting school you know. How did you go about that first? Half that it was an interesting process and to me. The recruiting process started off trae stressful. You have all these great schools you know. I used to just pray guy. God is Doin' in options. The options were there so I was super fortunate to have that because I would live in. I was in the same room with somebody who didn't even know if they're going to get a scholarship. So that can be Ground level headed but I did enjoy the process because I was thankful for thankful to get to know coaches so pretty early on. I create a pros and cons. I created questions. I asked each coach. How far wants to go? If distance even mattered if conference matter at the time. That didn't matter to me. And so from the merits my top five. It's my top two which was Kentucky and Uconn and I remember taking a visit early in Yukon and then taking a visit to Kentucky about may NFL. At that time I was exhausted. I my one official visit but I was exhausted with the process house. Like I'm completely over. This and I may great connections with Girls Kentucky with the coaching staff Mafia comfortable. So at that point and not sadness so that way you kind of felt the exact same way you can. I guess it was there in front of me if fell right at the moment and so cast okay. I'm going into my senior year of a you and I didn't want to have to choose a wine to be solidified before seeing junior year because at the time that's when they first changed a rule so I wanted to be committed by senior year I was died. I didn't want the pressure anymore and committed end so that was an interesting process so again now the pros and cons list talking to coaches distance cannot into consideration. The one came down that pros and cons What kind of look like for me. Family is everything and people say that lightly but I wanted somewhere where I was going to be there for four years and my biggest fear was transferred out one life. I wanted to make the perfect decision. I wanted a place where players came back growing up A lot of places and I've learned I've learned now what it really means to come back in Soviet with access comeback. Why they don't why they do. Because you can be on the team with twelve people in. Everyone has drastically different experiences. But I really wanted somewhere where a majority of the players came back. I wanted a place with rich history. Not just a yeah. We're GONNA Iran this conference but rich like Deep Kentucky history. You know I love that you call history at WanNa tradition. I felt that was important. Especially after coming for Blair Academy being able to see a loan to connect with them. I love that that was huge to me player development players who play like me who look like me And how they developed over time and again just that relationship piece so two that to me again with academics being able to holistic route players. Who actually talked about being a person versus those who actually developed in the curriculum. They had in place. So were you reading a book to your team. And where were they nurturing their growth from outside of school so different things than to Alone could it wasn't just people based on the name of the school. It was like there was office behind how you're going to fit in how you going to be able to enjoy love the that freshman year at. Kentucky. How'd you describe that? Chapter title that chapter. It is so funny. You know the theme for that summer I remember our first conditional gap the code saying arson conditioning coach. He said we're GONNA name this summer. It's GonNa be expect. The unexpected now is the name of the summer so you know it was crazy. Be expect the unexpected it. So that's exactly what I was saying encompassing of my time I could learn so much as a great people. A tough conference plane. Sec everyday eating there is nothing like your freshman year. There is nothing like I'm always in pain. There's nothing you can get shake off the grind on schoolwork at feels never ending the season that feels never ending but also opening up in exploring new party. Yourself INAU May. I didn't know I had an emmy. I knocking show up in that moment. So deftly wasn't adjustment but it was incredibly awakening experience the same beliefs
Malaysia gets new PM, Muhyiddin Yassin, after week of turmoil
"To Malaysia which has a new prime minister seventy two year old my eden. Yesen it's less than a week after the abrupt resignation of the world's most national later. This is the ninety four year old Muhammad Muhammad that plunged Malaysian politics into turmoil. So how has this South East Asia nation about thirty one to thirty two million people? How has it gone from an inclusive? And reformist government to a nationalist conservative law. Within days. Bridget Welch is an honorary research associate at the University of Nottingham. That's at Malaysia's Asia Research Institute bridget. Welcome back to between the lines. Great to be here now. Mahadi rule Malaysia for more than two decades until a two thousand and three in my twenty. It mighty gripe political comeback. Those last time we had you on the program bridge. What did he suddenly resign? Listen to us into his tenure. Well I it's reasonably clear that had he had very serious tensions between himself and anwer Abraham and the coalition that he led the pocket harp on coalition was divided and ultimately it split And as a consequence of that The the coalition collapsed and part of the collapsed however in the ball to move to a new coalition government and mightier himself was not willing to accept what other other parties in the coalition were doing montier resented working with. I'm no particularly the former leaders of the former government who were Who are tainted by corruption allegations? So what we see is a situation where Montier many politicking dividing rule many of the trying to split the pot the coalition itself his his reluctance to to leave Turn power over to Anwar set the conditions for the power. Grab that took place but at the same time Montier was not willing to go full. Go through with it. Because he wasn't willing to to allow the new new coalition to include the members of who he stood against when he came back into power. I'm into thousand. Mahalia and You mentioned ny Abraham now. Let's be clear. He's the protege turned. Raul turned ally although they fill out about a waco so ago they have reunited though having I think they have reunited from a perspective of They're now forming the opposition. But they have not yet completely resolved their differences. The fact of the matter is is that if Montier had supported Anwar clearly laid out a time line and stopped the politicking within the coalition then the government would not have collapsed. So I think for now. They are working together against a now common enemy. Who was someone who took the took took over the government in a in a power grab but at the same time that doesn't necessarily mean that they are fully resolved the question of the Lisa Session? If alcohol everyone was to come back to government says he feels but tried he success that. Yes in his malign nationalist. He's backed by this corruption tarnished former governing party. You mentioned the Mama tells more about yes so mine didn't yes and has been in politics for over forty years He joined politics in nineteen. Seventy eight He came into. I'm no He was the Chief Minister of the the very important state of Jehovah on the southern part of Malaysia and he has served in different capacities as different ministries that has held six different ministries In I'm no I'm he has not necessarily Had A clear Persona that That an extensive grassroots but he's been a very effective tactician and capable administrator And as a consequence he rose through the ranks through I'm no And he became deputy prime minister under the previous government From two thousand nine to two thousand fifteen We didn't ask known predominantly for three things He's I known for defining himself I as a Malay- as opposed to a Malaysian which is of course part of the reason. There's the brand that he is. Emily nationalist government and this new coalition that exists combines is predominantly Malays based parties And so this is something. It seems to have been Quite defining of who he is. The second thing is is that he's also known for standing up for against Najib on they won. Mvp scandal He he was sacked and after putting pressure On on Najeib to on these issues of corruption and he after in this happened in two thousand fifteen when the scandal is revealed so he stood up for On this important issue. And he's also known now for The effective maneuvering up becoming the winner in the power. Grab Which of course they're very different views and Malaysia about this Those looking at this recognized that that there are real serious. Ethical concerns about Whether or not amyloid and Yeltsin actually had the numbers which really did not seem to be the case in terms of A majority government When he was positioning himself for taking over power And others feel that that there's a there's an that he had. He had more than most numbers at that time and that he should that He was effective and moving and getting the position of power. There people in Malaysia are divided right now. Some people are are willing to give mood in a chance Wanting the situation to be more stable is and others very very angry that they feel that their sister the government has been stolen from them their dreams of different Malaysia of stolen for them. And there's a bit of considerable fear among people that this that lead in Yassin were lot real will be an old Malaysia. Politician Aka using the levers of power using issues of race using of issues of of of exclusion as a way to build up his powerbase so to the extent that this new Malaysian pm a struggles to govern and of course we have to remember elected public. Mandates does this mean this unprecedented instabilities. Luckily to continue the fact of the matter is is that Malaysia is a coalition government And is dealing with the situation of coalition governments in coalition governments across the world. You have one type of party set. A parties emerged. And then you can have a very unstable situation that a new set of parties emerged from Malaysia. This is a very new dynamic and of course it played out in the uniquely Malaysian Way with with intense amount of personal drama and Intrigue Enemies and betrayals Because the politics of Malaysia or highly personalized Right now mood in is Has Very is behold into the parties that he that he is that a put him into office and and the questions of Prot. Who is he's going to prosecute or maintain the prosecution's how much Islam governance he's GonNa put in whether he's actually GonNa try to seem to have any reform without his gonNA use race relations and of course importantly now lead in. Essen is is somebody who's just recently had a very serious bout of pancreatic cancer so the issue of the leadership succession is is equally important for this new government so there are very important points of instability and and as a result of that This is something that the people are watching very carefully. The instability is also facilitated by the fact that the opposition the new opposition bucket on Harapan. Now is that is actually quite emboldened by how this power crap has taken place.

"Craig Gordon runs our political coverage based in DC's up here in Manchester with us as as we watch and wait it gets closer as the vote goes up Greg anybody like you has I know you have a list of stories in your head right now that you want your team to get out there and and right tomorrow the days ahead give us a sense of that what do you what what intrigues you which is yeah I mean I think for the Bloomberg news audience a story that we're going to have tomorrow morning is about the flow of the class of lives with Warren I mean again if we've been sitting here a year ago having this conversation we would have probably been talking about her as a potential front runner actually in this state done well here a nationally had done well so the polls had a little bit of a moment there Wall Street obviously not the biggest fans of Elizabeth Warren and so her classes been quite spectacular the and I think for our customers in particular our listeners and readers that's a good that's a person they want to know more about it seemed like she I think what our story kind of tries to get at is you know I have a plan for that well we have a plan for everything it's very easy to start poking holes and she made some real missteps on Medicare for all where you know Bernie Sanders I was gonna cost would cost and I can worry about and she had to go over the number and never was very good and she's a little bit evasive and I think they were like wait a minute I thought you were like the one with the plan I think you're the one with all the all the tease cross and I's dotted and when that fell away she just didn't have a lot to kind of fall back on she also spent a lot of money and digital advertising less on TV advertising that's you know a surprising to me a little bit twenty twenty the TV advertising still move the needle was a quite a lot I don't think she ever quite did that as much as she should how many governing centers there is there's just like only so much oxygen in the race for two very liberal candidates who you know if you put their positions on paper there the pretty much identical in they're very different personally in the different people and and their approach to politics but you know if you have the Sir two choices it made it hard for a warm to find the oxygen to kind of take kind of co exist with when Sanders and then in that race you know earlier tonight I think it was Kevin who said Kevin so really who said he thought that were worn started we were talking about you know policies but he said he thought it was wind Bernie and she team you know to blows on stage and one went up and one went down yeah I it was it was one of the first and most ugliest kind of interactions where she basically said the Bernie Sanders and told her to private mean that women can't win the presidency Bernie said of course the night that we all got to listen to that hot Mike moment where you kind of challenge them for any kind of pushed back and it was kind of it was like to just like her to watch you know it's sort of a I don't know who said what I could imagine pretty my system like that or criticism misinterpreted to be like that but yeah I think there was there's so many supporters it could go either way that I do think that my turns people off to to warn yet to your point and and you've just you know he here Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have basically the the the same position when it comes to Medicare for all and it you know burning a test the question because you have going to cost you know thirty trillion dollars in Elizabeth Warren basically cover the same answer yet she tanks and he searches I'm Bernie is that I think burning the problem for war as you try to get a little bit to the left of Bernie Sanders there's no room to the left Bernie Sanders again here there's no room there yeah and so when she sort of tried out Medicare for all him when his answer is essentially up thirty four trillion of breaking taxes and that's what's going to happen for a lot of people wild maybe some people don't want to have the taxes raises a very clear answers seem like he understood his position and he was a little bit like take it or leave it like that I think this will we need to for the country Medicare for all I think give raise taxes to pay for it and I think it's an important thing to raise the taxes I think warrant kind of try to dance around it a little bit you took a little while even come up with a number of was I was about the same thirty four trillion as you say but in that sort of sense of like I I I was use the word evasiveness like wait a minute like I thought again if I knew what the plans at that you're the one that was the truth teller here and I mean I feel like he's being very clear and you're being very evasive in our like that and I just think that when you run against your own narrative that's right exactly so most interesting into politics he had built a whole narrative of being the person with all the answers the most important question I would argue which is Medicare for all health care's thirty some percent since the one topic your New Hampshire tonight what is it I suppose if you don't have your answer straight on that that's that could be for you know you know listen and we were going to refresh these numbers sixty three percent now reporting of the eight PM organ using a P. numbers as Craig says that's what bloomer goes with here some of the networks maybe calling this but it's tightening of sixty four percent now Bernie Sanders has twenty five point nine percent of the of the vote the judge has twenty four percent that's what that's one point nine percent difference in culture in a twenty point one so here's the big what if Craig what if Pete booted judge wins the New Hampshire primary have we put to rest some of the murky miss that we've been muddling through tonight not one bit yeah I mean I sent out one yeah I mean look you could make an argument that if if it works are worn surging magenta repeating Sanders so now you have you know again we have like thirty two lanes left not a part of the parties burning kind of come to be there and you've got to eventually three cameras in the other they're going to get out and that's nobody should feel they should feel good about her win tonight her third place finish right that's structuring for more surprising to us but it just means you know on to the bat on the South Carolina the races the marking the race of fluid and anybody hoping for answers you into this a moment ago you you want your kids go to a store and lives with one let me re site this Elizabeth Warren no sixty four percent of the vote in nine point four percent Biden eight point four I mean the threshold here's fifteen in they were hovering in the you know the low teens now they drop below ten is this is got to be even more surprising than one would imagine yeah I mean the Biden collapses been kind of a parent since I was a very poorly there came here it is you know a lot of energy as events and they their whole you know vine campaign says it's you know the classic marathon not a sprint the first concerts reporting South Carolina matters we can't decide the nominee and those of African American Hispanic or get a chance to have their say all fine points but if your entire calling cars let's ability I'm the one that could be done trump and you're getting not even ten percent in the state that you should do fine in that that's just that's just crushing crushing move or is there anything Sanders can do to broaden his appeal to the the moderates the Democratic Party I mean he's been really leaning hard lately on this electability argument that goes back to what I said like I'm electable because not because I'm the moderate you know the kind of the middle of the road person but I'm the person that can inspire the energy in the youth and other kind of in the laughs and again I've you could buy that he could not buy it but it's the case in these kind of sticking to it so that is his case I think he needs to go beyond being just the guy with the crazy hair and he's a socialist and get all of to being a person like no no I can actually beat down from like Joe Biden thought told he could he's couldn't clearly warned that chance rejects Chrysler seven years only ran a small town in Indiana for a few years I'm the guy on the person can do and again he he started to give his argument that direction slightly and I think he the more he leans into that if you get people to buy it that we you can't just state he's got a movement going he's got he's got to have a why just like any of these things that I was saying when something I have to win something right so you know and second tonight after blue judges are like wait a minute I thought you were the guy yeah trump so you know that that doesn't exactly hold that argument but he has tried to broaden his hit the case it is making the voters and I think it was some over by you is there any measure other than these primaries are these caucuses where we can see that Bernie or anybody for that matter is picking up support yeah the one place is money and he's he's always fundraise always man's very strong twenty three seven million I think in the last quarter he does it again it's a small donors people and write a little check drop an envelope whatever that is a real again coming to rally signs support writing a check men's real so warm and I was the need money could be in politics but also as a way to show people like yes I have the sort of army of grassroots folks that are willing to spend their hard earned money to help me get elected president that's a big deal yeah you you said something that was interesting a few moments ago you said if Amy coe charges so we don't have her supporters be project has his supporters and you said you know Amy Klobuchar hadn't done so well and Pete had picked up a few more of Amy's of voters you know Pete could have check could be the one winning tonight are those the supporters of Bridget clover charm of supporters are they one of the same I mean is not exactly but I do think they're looking for I mean in some ways they're looking for who is the anti Bernie a lot you know we've we've all watch the debates we're judging call which are muted first more vociferously in the later debates of said Medicare fraud be a disaster take away feels private health insurance you know maybe when I was love our health insurance but I mean a lot of people are pretty calm for that program to get for the employer the idea that I was going to take it over so I think for a lot of voters Bernie just seems I use the word like radical you know just sort of seems like a little bit out there on the left in the whole thing the insurance thing is a very clear differentiator between us canceling as if you have private insurance I'm not sure ready to throw that over for a government plan where you know you're coming up prisoners to be able to work that out so they're not identical I mean I'm sure we know in these covers Gessle this form for women obviously people to jazz for something he gave you know presidents can get this far as certain as for those camps others there are variations within their base but a lot of it is I don't like the direction Bernie says we take this country and I get by some of the can first stop Bernie and then the truck Greg we it's been great conversation but we know you have things to do we're gonna let you go as much as I hate to

I believe is racism to be honest. Because it's quite different the way they treat William K compared to make Harry. I was too this view because as much as there probably is racism towards down there. I feel like this is mostly hurry since it was made public. There has been a very racialist onto return if not overtired into a lot of the media narrative a story about a thirty five year old.

I mean, glory. Glory be to God and goes eah elite festival apple some respect on blurb to God's. Yeah, good, Lori anyway. But it wasn't a coup glory was on the ground. The management glory is living. Her moment is money. I think that she's something else know what parents she's doing another job. Actually, she just lying for the grand. And then meets a man. Lays name, but my mind is actually rely him, but he reminds me of Thomas. He reminds he really wanted to do you think he he wanted to mold her into a specific type of woman in the near the end? Yeah, think you know what I think I think that he just wanted things to work really wanting to officially like this go. She's a. Particular age she's ever people. This is gone to let this is. Thomas is mom comes. Of nowhere and from pleasantness comes down to just like like also, do you want kids? Do you want me to Nigeria. The story base in these glory. Glory is an only child. Don't do nothing she any child is it doesn't really have much career projection. She doesn't have do. What's her name? Bridget Jones. She is Bridget Jones and Bridget Jones would be acceptable like people will accept glory.

Thomas is on parents judge her telling how you could do so much barren life and that. Full shot. She could piss. I was listening reading in this NPR groovy, but that why don't we accept that? And it's the same thing with so much stuff. It just reminds me of like how black women and black people cannot do cannot right one things that are mediocre. They have to be outstanding out of this world. Sation with my dad this week about legacy. I was we're not say conversation. It was more him telling me and it was actually quite interesting out like so reading this story. Obviously your parents are gonna look at you and be like, hey, I didn't put this money into your fee to come out here and be scrounging money of me for your rent. Okay. Where's your money kind of thing? Like having your big woman that you'll be age out here in money from your parents and she and her mom is giving money and not telling died. I know this stuff, and I just find that really, really strange. Parents always go into like always want the best view in a legacy wise. I'm going to ask these questions. Gloria was. -tations of people and myself. So for me to be like glory, glory had never had anybody to kind of she did those out anybody to base herself of these. I mean, as an only child, I would imagine, I'm not once. I don't know. But if you don't have many, many cousins, a huge family around you all the time. There's no soundboard internal thing. For example, I have a big family, but an I definitely I'm grateful for what they've what they've helped me chief, but I can honestly say nobody ever told me to do my homework since four. That was last time. Yes. There was a food and shelter. Basic things provided that would enable me to be an environment where I could sit down to home what, but where is that internal thing that pushes you? And I think that was so different from people to remember like, yes, it's within people to people, but you know that you know that when you school in teacher says, do your homework, you'll go home to your home, what to bring it in schools, eating school, like you're not caring about because people didn't say my dog as it.
