5 charts show what the global economy looks like heading into 2021
"Our yesterday's professor fluke. She's vice president of research. And the william davidson senior fellow for economic policy at israel democracy institute. She's the former governor of the bank of israel and professor at department of economics at the hebrew university of jerusalem earlier this month Professor flog served as the co chair of the idea is l. e. horovitz conference where the most pressing issues relating to israel's economy and society where discussed professor conflict. Hello and welcome back to the tel aviv review. Good morning. so. When corona virus hit it seemed like we were heading for an economic downturn that would rival the great depression but according to the bank of israel and always estimates israeli economy in terms of gdp per capita on employment growth and other measurements seems to be bouncing back and within a few years to return more or less to the levels prior to the crisis and it seems also that this crisis if everything goes according to plan will even less devastating than the two thousand nine hundred thousand nine downturn. So where the initial estimates and overreaction altogether anything wrong. I think we're still in the middle of a very serious crisis. It's true that recently we've seen some oppo revisions both today. A growth estimates of the global economy and also for the the projections for the israeli economy. But still we're talking about a very deep recession globally. Were talking about according to the most recent projections of the cd. We're talking about a contraction of over four percent this year and hopefully a rebound of about four percent next year. This is just in comparison to the global financial crisis the global economy contracted by only zero point one percent so we're still talking about a very deep recession and that's true also for the israeli economy If we are on the path as described by damore to mystic scenario that was a published by the bank of israel it means to the economy will contract this year by about five percent. And we'll rebound by about six percent next year. If we are on the less optimistic scenario where the corrina is not contained the pandemic is not contain then we will have a somewhat more severe contraction this year but much slower recovery by next year so i would say Were still talking about two very serious crisis. A very severe recession however it's true the israeli economy is doing somewhat better relative to other economists. I
Alex Padilla to become California's first Latino senator, replacing Harris
"Going. Secretary Alex Padilla now heads to Washington, D C. To replace Vice President elect Kamila Harris and become California's first Latino senator. Questions still remain over how Padilla will be received in D. C. And for more, we turn now to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and talk with Christopher. Cattle. Lago National political reporter at Political Good to have you with us, Christopher Nice to be here. Thank you. So, how much pressure do you think the governor was under to appoint a Latino to replace Kamila Harris? I think he was under huge pressure. Just generally. He he was replacing a multiracial woman, and Kamila Harris, a black woman. And there was a lot of groups out there who felt that not only should he replace Harris with a woman but a black woman in particular because she was the only black woman in the U. S Senate, and that number will not go from 1 to 0. But there was also tremendous pressure. Even before Harris ran, you'll remember in 20. 15 when she started her campaign to replace Barbara Boxer for the state to elect its first Latino senator, Um, back then, there were calls for folks like former L. A Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to run even the happier for Sarah, who by now nominated to be the Health and human services director to potentially run Kevin De Leone ended up running against Dianne Feinstein and 2018 and lost in the other Senate seat. So there was a lot of competing pressure for Gavin Newsom and what we saw yesterday. Clearly there was no accident in him almost packaging these two Thies two appointments together, which you saw for the U. S. Senate and Alex Padilla and then surely Weber. To replace Padilla as secretary of state, a state wide position. Surely Weber is chair of the Black caucus in the state and also Was a long time professor PhD from San Diego State who's done a lot of focus on police reform another racial justice issues in the state, so You know, do some. I know people talk for weeks and weeks about appointing Padilla. He was He was kind of the obvious pick someone who is allied with new some years ago, but he waited clearly so he could make these two um, appointments in tandem s so that people could see kind of the full context of both of them and not just look at one of the other. What? What about the comments from San Francisco Mayor London Braid. Initially she called this a real blow to the African American community. You think she was angry at video? She angry Governor Newsome. Yeah. Both. I think she speaks for folks both in the state and nationally who Who really did genuinely want to see that seat. Uh um, uh, C representation. Um, of Ah, Black woman like common. Harris continue in that Senate seat. There. Also a lot of people as I mentioned who wanted to see a woman in that seat. Um and I think She? It's complex. She does reflect some of the groups out there some of the people out there even some of the people who are praising kind of the tandem. Nature of these pics were disappointed, maybe not in such sharp terms of London Bridge, But groups and other folks out there were disappointed that Newsome did not appoint a black woman to serve in the Senate. Well, this all got announced and Harris is term expires in two years, and Padilla has already launched a Senate campaign account asking for donations. So it appears that He wants to stick around for a while, and he's already raising money. Yeah, The thing that we know about the Senate races these days and really any races, you have to capitalize on the 1st 2024 hours 48 hours first week when people are paying attention, the senior name in the news These races in California don't typically command a kind of TV time. And so he's trying to get a raise as much money as you can. And in the short period, the short window where folks are really tuning in. And we've seen comments. And I know you didn't mention this but from folks like Ro Khanna Progressive, who was the national co chaired for Bernie Sanders, who are expressing disappointment, not not in, uh in the in Padilla. On the fact that he's a Latino, which they celebrate, but in the fact that they think that his politics or to moderate and that's just that he's got to raise a lot of money because he could he could certainly face eh Progressive challenger in two years in the state, and you know he'll only have two years to really make his mark and get his name out there before before his challenge.

We co-chair the racial reconciliation committee, which is a very important job that was created after the George Floyd murder and I was asked to share that and I was wow, you know, it was really blown away that I was asked to do it and but we've taken initiatives, you know, we've been fighting for certain things with them. Organization to help you know us to you know, bring about change to make a difference, you know in our society and through basketball, you know, whether that's the elimination of trying to take on elimination of old SAT and ACT test standardized test, you know, we're doing things when we were heavily involved with other coaches as well with voter registration, you know, some different things that have come up, you know come down and I have been a part of you know, something as anchor coaches for another initiative.

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines arrive in Los Angeles
"Cherry Gwai. Oh, so, yeah, the first doses of a covert vaccine of finally arrived in Los Angeles, and there's been a lot of talk about who should get them first. And, of course, the fear that some people have of getting vaccinated at all. One of the folks who has been helping to make the rules for vaccine distribution is Dr Oliver Brooks, He's co chair of California's vaccine drafting guidelines Work group, and he's also the chief medical officer over Watts. Health care, Dr Brooks. Nice to have you back on. Good to be back in here with you to the first shipments of vaccines will be given to front line health care workers. It's already happened. Other health care workers are next in line, but but from what we just heard, even some health care workers air wring their hands and saying, Well, maybe I'll wait a bit to see if it's safe. I mean, Do you have workers at Watts, who were hesitant to get vaccinated? I'd say that I've had conversations with people everywhere. Health care workers and not that do have some hesitation. Yes, Health care workers are human, just like everyone else. Those those human patients who are hesitant about the vaccine. We know there are a lot of folks who are we just heard numbers from one poll that found only just about a third of Latinos trust the vaccine to be safe and only 14% of black Americans that that's a national poll. But those numbers Must give you pause. What do you telling patients to try to overcome? That kind of Ah, I mean, my gosh. What a barrier That is. Well, the approach that I take, which has been studied in his A reasonable approach is first and foremost acknowledge their concerns. Don't just blow them off and say, what do you What do you doing? You know it's the vaccine is safe, effective need to get it. Have to understand where people are coming from. There is a mistrust of the medical community in the African American community. There, it's there's some grounds for that. I mean, Slaves were experimented upon. They were sold for experimentation and to turn of the 20th century, there was sterilization of African American women. There is the infamous Tuskegee study where 600 black men were allowed to have syphilis progress to see what the complications were. So I mean, it's not like this is coming from nowhere. However, I have not known any first of all this. What else I'll tell them. I've known no bias. Or concern, as relates to experimentation issue with any vaccine. The second thing I do is I give them knowledge, so I will tell you this. It is an emotional psychological response that they're having and not One that can be solved by numbers and data. So it's important. But you still need to have him and then a circle back and say so, you know, have I addressed everything you're concerned about? That works. Some don't work for everyone, but it does work. Have you been vaccinated yet? Yourself? No, it hasn't come to my clinic yet. But I will be first in line assuming that's not considered selfish. S O I I am eager and willing. I do not want Cove in 19. So another thing I do tell people it's the vaccine truly is safe and effective. It's been scrutinized. So have the window. We heard a vaccine so well scrutinized in the public eye, so there has been clear
John Kerry, Biden's Pick For Climate Envoy, To Face Big Challenge On Climate Change
"President elect has tapped former secretary of state john kerry as climate envoy. Npr's scott detro- has this look at the challenges. He faces wind biden named a former secretary of state as international climate. Point person. todd. Stern was pretty surprised. Sternhell the job. During the obama administration where he worked closely with carey on the paris climate agreement and other big efforts to lower emissions around the world. It sent a cat unmistakable. Signal that President-elect dighton is really serious about what he has said would biden has said is that climate change is a crisis demand swift sweeping action experts. Say the us needs to drastically overhaul its energy producing in the coming decade. A huge economic and political challenge and one eighty from the trump administration carry spoke. Npr's morning edition last week about how he invited. View the stakes if we think mind. Gration was a challenge in europe and the last year or here in america on our border where to see what happens when places become completely unlivable. So the former secretary of state will work as a brand name global ambassador under the likely secretary of state. Tony blinken who used to work for him. This carry co chaired. A task force aimed at bridging the gap between biden and runner-up bernie sanders on climate policy carry notably began the first meeting by immediately turning over the zoom to varsity precaut- twenty-seven-year-old co of climate activist. Group the sunrise movement and kind of taken aback. I i'm used to spaces like that. Having to fight for airtime taskforce highlighted some internal policy and priority differences that the biden administration will face on climate. We definitely do have differences in that was apparent. The task force sunrise believe says. We're looking at the science that we have to move way faster than a twenty fifty target. And if we don't a lot of people are going to suffer one. Big difference between climate activists and kerry how they think about and deal with big energy companies groups like sunrise see them as the culprits who ignored and worse than climate change kerry tells. Npr on the phone with them talking about paths to clean energy. They also understand that. There's money to be made in producing the products. Anybody who has the breakthrough on battery storage is could have the key to the future. Todd stearns says it makes sense for carry to have those conversations. Nobody who knows kerry would ever accuse him of these a go. Slow warned dover centrist is. Not what makes this guy tick at all. Stern says the conversations are important because the to do list on the international climate front is much different than four years ago when carey was secretary of state. The main goal was crafting. A big sweeping climate accord paris now sources familiar with the biden transition. Say the much more important thing will be cobbling together. Agreements on how to actually lower those missions things like cement steel plastics chemicals Very polluting very very global. Could you imagine subset of of the international seat. Yellows international government leaders working together to do that. Another goal will be convincing countries like china. Stop building new. Coal fired power plants. That's an area that could affect the politics of climate change back in the us to congressman. Connor lamb says many voters his western pennsylvania district where natural gas is big are still more skeptical of the need to make big changes in energy production. He says there's a mindset of what's the use of china and india are still burning coal and those things could earn for the next fifty years. So you can do everything that that the left in the sunrise movement stuff. You could do everything that those people want in the united states and it makes up like fifteen percent of world conditions and that gets to the bigger challenge for kerry and the rest of the biden administration climate experts and advocates agreed the best way to prove to the rest of the world. The us is serious about climate change again is to pass sweeping policies to lower emissions within the country's borders and doing that means not just uniting various wings of the democratic party. It likely means convincing republicans in congress and conserve the judges on the federal courts to go along with policies that their party has long opposed so perhaps the most important diplomacy will have to happen inside the us. Not around the world scott detro- npr news

But biofuel natural gas have you seen any of those options come available and if so do you see that as possible in the future. So they've come out with the natural gas it has some flaws. it's not working as well as they suspected. And the real big thing that they're talking about right now is the hydrogen and using a hydrogen generator. I don't know if he has. No what i generally works. You know. hydrogen trickles through this kind of system. water vapors like leak out through the bottom of the truck and it makes energy. Sounds like amazing right That's what they're working on like. Mobile companies actually are working on that right now Like for example tesla is a completely electric truck. But nicola is a hydrogen generator. Recharges the batteries on the truck and use the energy for the for the morris due to keep it going. Yeah i think. Hydrogen is going to be the next best thing because The natural gas started off real hard. But it it it..

I definitely know a lot of the areas that you're talking about an unfamiliar with a lot of issues that you experience so You know as you talk tonight. I just know that you won't need layman's terms for me. I may describe some things for some of the audience So i'm just to go ahead. And i'm going to get us started off with some more questions What is your goal for this strike. You know the biggest goal right now is so. The independent drivers the owner operators. They are the ones that are you know organizing and going on strike us as a company. We have signed contracts. And you know it's been a very bad year. We don't have the luxury and our overhead is way way more than an oba owner operators. We don't have the luxury to to go on. Strike a what. The drivers are fed. Up about is no number couple reasons.

But when on the road they just don't know how to how to deal with truckers. Don't know how to give them space things along those lines right. They gave a little bit frustrated because most of the monitoring public under they only know how to drive a car so they really don't understand how the dynamex an how trucks you know. accelerate decelerate.

Racial Justice and Medicare for All
"I am benjamin day. I'm stephanie nakajima and this is medicare for all the podcast for everybody who needs healthcare so today. We're gonna discuss a topic that is central to our success in winning medicare for all when we as a movement talk about what it's going to take to win often when you hear issues like fundraising publication electing the right. Legislators there's other things that usually come up. But i think there's something that maybe even more important than any of those things putting us on the path to victory and that is of course confronting the deeply ingrained racism and our structures and cells. When you look at where. The united states is in compared in comparison to its pure countries. It's impossible to explain why we are so much more of an unequal and capitalist society than everywhere else that looking at the role of racism through our history Its impact on our safety net and the neglect and vilification of our public programs. So this is like a big conversation and we could probably have several podcasts on it but today we want to talk about racism specifically in the healthcare system and how medicare for all would and wouldn't address in a racism at the doctor's office and and then a little bit about the interrelated nature of our movements a movement with the larger fight for racial justice. And why and how. They are interconnected so ben. Do you want to introduce our guest absolutely so it is my great pleasure to introduce the wonderful person on the screen with us Dr beata amani. Who is an associate professor for. The charles r drew university of medicine and science and This is a timely is a lead co chair of the covid nineteen taskforce on racism and equity which is housed at the ucla center for study of racism social justice and health. Welcome dr money. I'm so excited to be here. It is great to have you so before we dive into this deep topic Can you tell us a little bit about your background. And why did you choose to become an epidemiologist with a focus on racism and what is epidemiology. So i mean that's a that's a wonderful question. Just what is an epidemiologist. Because i think for so many people. My friend circle in my family This current moment had them Here in the word and being like Isn't one of those. So epidemiology is essentially like the science and the studying of the disease distribution pattern the the distribution patterns of disease and anything associated with z's And it's not only about studying the the distribution and the pattern of disease and its related outcomes but it's also about studying the things that go into effect right the things that are in place the policies and practices that we have what are the effects of those things on the distribution of disease disease-related outcomes. So what that meant for me I think growing up was. I always loved Health and i loved politics And i was always thinking about the relationship between these two things And so when. I know you're thinking about how to have some sort of impact especially as a young person And you hear about like institutions. Like the cdc or the who right You really can you know. Start to give a sense of like. What does it mean to be able to like. Go out and steady and to collect information that can be so useful that it can actually save. Lives like on a larger level. These are to me that young person you know who was really drawn to like the field of setting in a deniau genes that then overtime epidemiology. That also came to me a tool set and a set of ideas that belonged to and we're a service of a system that Not only structured by racism. Right like us. Stephanie mentioned beginning at the heart of what we're talking about today But also was instrumental in structuring it and and creating and maintaining that And so then what that meant for me. Somebody who was studying it was that i was really drawn initially to infectious disease epidemiology Because you saw so much like an equity And also just they kind of racialized ideas about populations being generated around who's sick. Who's not risk of people who are not sick from those. Who are you know. So all those racial congregations And then moving into what we call behavioral. Fb and the idea that people's behaviors and they're like and and you know people's behaviors and their own actions can be connected and related to their health. So there's a potential for some sort of empowerment right to what i am. I think you know today like loosely. and specifically your social epidemiologist. Somebody who wants to study the distribution of disease and disease related factors In populations and communities on basant understanding systems structures in power

Honolulu mayor kirk caldwell visited doctors in the covid. Nineteen ward of the queen's medical center the state's largest hospital. I could see it in their faces and in their eyes caldwell says the concern and fear. They had that by the following week. If things didn't change they were not going to be able to care for people that they were going to have to put them intense outside. It was a crisis that leaders in the fiftieth state hoped they would never face between march and may when a stay at home order was in place. Hawaii was averaging only a couple of new cases every day but as some restrictions were lifted in june resulting in a patchwork of state and local rules. The numbers soon began inching up by late. July hawaii was metaphorically ablaze with the bulk of cases centered on oahu. Home to two thirds of the state's population. The island lost one hundred and nineteen. New cases underlie thirtieth by mid august. It was averaging over two hundred today four days after his hospital. Visit with more than three hundred and fifty people hospitalized for covid nineteen symptoms on his island issued a second lockdown order with the blessing of hawaii governor. David ige our hospital administrators had informed us. If we didn't do something that they would become overwhelmed says he gay three months later. It seems hawaii's response may have worked as a new deadly wave of coronavirus infections sweeps across the us. Hawaii is one of the only states in the country experiencing relative reprieve. It reported one hundred and thirteen new cases on november twenty third according to data from johns hopkins university slightly more than its weekly average of one hundred six daily new cases. Only vermont reported fewer cases that day hawaii the fortieth most populous state has a low case. Count even when adjusted for population as of november twenty third. It has a weekly average of seven cases per one hundred thousand residents the lowest in the country by comparison. The highest per capita figure is belong to north dakota at one sixty and wyoming at one fifty four infection levels in hawaii have stayed relatively steady since mid-september while nearly every other state has experienced an increase it remains to be seen whether a slight uptick in recent days could be the start of a new upward trend however how has a wii so far avoided another major covid nineteen surge. The clearest reason is apparent on any world map geography. It's so obvious yet. It plays such a big role says thomas lee. An assistant professor of epidemiology at the university of hawaii at manoa and co chair of the hawaii pandemic applied modeling workgroup. He also served as the lead outbreak. Modular and forecaster for the hawaii emergency management agency this spring for hawaii. The pacific ocean has helped serve as the world's biggest moat travelers arriving there by plane. Essentially the only means of reaching the state with cruise lines. Shuttered have since march required to self quarantine for two weeks though since mid-october visitors can avoid isolation if they test negative within seventy two hours of arrival while the rules may have kept visitors from seating new infection clusters. They have also devastated. Hawaii's tourism sector which accounts for nearly a quarter of its economic activity. Some hawaiian leaders. Still don't think they're doing enough to prevent infections part of a broader split among hawaiians over whether and how to welcome visitors back during a pandemic derek kawakami mayor of quite county says new infections on his islands are related to the reopening of travel from the continental us. He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.

Thank you for joining us today, Isabella. Thank you for inviting me to join you my pleasure. So you have dedicated your life to protecting nature. What was the driving force for this passion? So how question because I have been working the last thirty-five years of environmental issues not only pursue but also at the global level I'm a biologist. Okay, and I thought that how fascinating the life is the diversity of life is I was born less less Century for catering sixties and it was momentum the world that took two years and ages and out nine inches that we preparing how you live in this Century the new century. So environmental issues were emerging strategic Global issues. And I was really fascinated to have the opportunity to join not only to move forward consider the developing issues in my country and how can bring development together with environmental preservation and conservation. But more also how it can happen plenty of approach consider the diversity of societies and those in my country also and also the inequalities of social equality I used to big things together since my early evenings, so I think that environmental agenda of sustainability channel that it was doing my career that the decisions our marriage and also page you're able to join the global multilateral agreements and also the global Summits, etc. Etc. But always trying to manage better than actual realities in 2 0 on the how we can bring people together. So for me, it's science beyond the politics means that we can be together and this fascinates me. I love the diversity dead. Of the planet not only the biological ones. Okay, and this the possibilities to discover to ReDiscover the world and to be closer to other. This is something that still today makes sense for me to move forward. So it's how how to be part of the world in a way that you can contribute our best to a better quality of life and they knew on the to improve the relationship between humankind and the nature as a biologist make sense for me. Absolutely sick and you're from one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. So I imagine that definitely had an influence on your career decisions to protect nature. Yes, fantastic because I thought working and 9 day before after my graduation. Also, I was food dedicated to scientific research and I was provoked to join dead. Environmentalism Brazil that was charged to create the new institutional Arrangements situation governments in Brazil to manage environmental issues. Not the natural resource officers want no biology as in traditional wedding that used to be approved and it was a big Challenge and this man changed my life. His name is Paula Dean Martin's famous song. Also Bastion used around the world. And also I was absolutely introduced to this political world the environmental politics indeed how the multilateral institutions will bring us together. The big channels that we will face and has two faces today considering climate change the global issue like my diverse reservation. And also how country like Brazil is a hybrid of assets not only in Amazonia, but Amazon forest, but also truck profiles like Atlanta virus and also did I vessel by Anonymous how we can bring this together? How a dog? You can use his in a better way to promote the development that you need. Well, you've certainly had a very impressive career and I know that you have achieved an incredible 84% reduction in a station of the Amazon the lowest historical deforestation rate. It has been called the largest-ever global contribution for emissions reduction. Can you tell me more about this? Yeah what I want to change the numbers today and I I look back to the past. Just remember my professional career and indeed when being Brazil were fully engaged to a different station Amazon. Okay, and do we establish the first national program to go against the first station and do learn a lot with this crisis and I was off of the enforce environmental enforcement team in the Brazilian institution that you called, environmental pollution, and I was part of this staff wage. That went into them as wanted to tackle the first station and it was very nice because it was not only the environmental stack students. But also the science you can came to get us and the so you bring together different station and also fires the needs to develop the scientific knowledge. Maybe they need to have an alliance and and I was charged the first number and of understanding between Brazil United States should learn more how can manage the type of forest fires and did how we can move on considered as a gym pass along my career. I have the opportunity to manage important International programs like the National Environmental program together. The first one was rolled back and also the famous PPG 7. So when I was Minister you have this experience to Brazil, you know that Brazil we have been proven our knowledge in the last twenty years exactly how to manage better the forcing of the invite. For some of the individual not really no Masonic and unfortunately, the first session was Raina is around 95% Basically legality. This is a environmental crime have a powerful legal framework in Brazil to tackle these problems and this is Cindy do have the full capacity scientist go on but also institutional wants to bring this month is probably sufficient together and to go against the first station. They go against environmental crime and those you entertained with my 2010 did they launch all of us another try and change policy that that support us to address better outcomes. So what I'd like to highlight is that we have I have a huge opportunity to connect the novelty of public policy life about various conservation the most important protect areas program in the world around six millions of hectares underbite of this reservation in protection in Amazon Vision together, this is Bob. Of a legacy and also we promote the.

In your short career so far as you say you've been involved in the number of projects for a number of different people. What do you think has been your most memorable project so far?

I'm actually quite pleased to say this, you know, there's quite it's been quite a lot lots of memorable moments really and I think one of the joys of this this discipline I think is you do find yourself and perhaps maybe it's also a feature working in defense, which is very broad. You find yourself not doing quite different things from from month to month and that keeps the job very interesting. So when I look back over my career and you know, I've enjoyed many of the programs when I first thought I was working on was thrown in at the deep end, you know ended up being the lead leader got my best for the sea Harrier FRS to st.

It's made me who I am today and I'm super happy about it. You Know I. Talk about it I tried to candidates awesome about in the united have the the easiest life growing up in terms of you know The environment in which I grew up in from south La. you know my dad did you know? Time prison a pretty significant amount of time, so he's gone for the majority of my childhood. Grow with my mother so I mean all of that stuff I say because it really shapes you in in. You know that's why think of things like this and I. I like service oriented roles like this I i WanNa give back as much as I can on a lot of people played a role in. Helping me get to where I am so yeah, you actually you wrote a little bit for linked in about how you've come to see your story as an important part of your journey, but there was a time when you were embarrassed to share with people. What has what has your experience been like sharing that story? Specifically with white colleagues like how has been received? I mean I, I, it's been, it's been liberated from me on a personal level, because the fact that I'm not spending so much time suppressing such a not such a big part, the entirety of myself all with the intended purpose of fitting in these primarily white spaces and I. Don't know if anybody's ever had to deal with you know. Not being true to themselves, but it's it's it's tax. It's mentally taxing physically taxing and it. It does not make you Does Not make you better, but I mean You know so I like I said it's been liberating for me, but in terms of my colleagues I. Think a lot of them. are usually surprise. And I think they're surprised. Because of the fact that they have their own preconceived notions about what somebody from my background is supposed to look like Act, light sound like an dispel all those notions when I walk into a room and That's not because it, but this is just everybody in my neighborhood. We're all intelligent. People were all well-spoken people. We all have thoughts in fears and everything like everybody else I just have been able to to end up in some of these spaces where some of my people like me have been able to sell its bid jarring for some people when they hear, meet celebrate story, but it's. It's the truth I think that anytime. I can help bring lights that I'll definitely do it. At what point did you start to share your story and realize that it might help other people? So I think for me. It was probably when I moved back to New York from L.. A. Around Twenty twelve. So you know Angela, new me, you know. She and I met in college. And you know. I was still trying to figure out just like anybody in college or any young person. You still trying to figure themselves out. You know you're trying to fit in once again in these environments that are not. Native to you if you will in your in your in who you are, so the journey really started after I left collared in twenty eleven when I came back, some York I found. A bunch of friends that looked like me in that had similar upbringings to me and being around them really gave me license to be myself to what I really was so then. That's when I start really opening up until the truth, like Hey, I'm the son of an ex felon who did twenty years a look I, grew up in south La look. My House got shot up like you know all this stuff. That might not be the same kid who grew up in. You know in Connecticut, you know in a two parent household and you know upper to middle class. but my friends and having people who share similar backgrounds to you definitely makes you more comfortable euro skit so then. That's when I started telling that story. And I know that part of your job or part of being part of the black inclusion group. Now you bring in students from underserved communities because you work with my friend Ashley. Who you guys have a little networking thing going on. Have? You shared your story with those students. Do you find that that's something that helps? Yeah I mean. When I see kids that look like me. And they got the same fears like me because they're not sure which way their life might go, because we don't have the same state does the ones I especially gravitate toward not so much when my story, but try to comforting you try to answer questions you know because I think it's more important for them to tell their story and just the fact that natural related related not. Not with everybody before a lot of people, you see yourself these kids you know when you see a young, black or brown kid from you know the Bronx or something like that now. That's a story you know seeing them. That resonates with me so of course I told him the story, but I always like to hear their stories because I learned a lot from. Those people sounds like. Therapy, yeah yeah! And I guess like showing people that like as you've learned. Your story is important to who you are, and you should share it, not not be embarrassed. Yeah it's it because it's a part of your identity. I mean it's your story, but your story is so intertwined to who you ultimately end up becoming as a person, so the more you choose to try to intentionally or unintentionally suppressed.

You know February third when everything has gone in Iowa Through April twenty eighth. WE MOVED UP OUR NEW YORK. Primary since we called the seller primer or if you will ninety percent of delegates are going to be decided between that span. We're going to have a pretty good gauge. Who's going to be our nominee by the end of April April? Give her Senate drink and so it's our job to be ready for that and I think when people keep saying us while we need one message we need one message. We're always going to push back on that MHM because what happens in Connor. Lambs district is very different than what Doug Jones needed. It's very different than what happened. When we flip the Senate in New York ORC is very different? What goes on in Florida? You know. People don't want they don't want you to come in and tell them what makes sense for me. They want their candidate. That at our job needs to be to help the candidates to drive home a message that works for them. You mentioned State House to the White House absolutely more city council Congress or for City Council in Congress. Right exactly I would agree with you. You knock on wood. I do think any of these candidates are capable of beating Donald trump but I also look at the Senate and that's a much more uphill push and we really need lots of volunteers to get out and do the work knocking on doors. Making those phone calls especially in those important Senate states so I feel like it's really important like you guys were both just talking about Having a candidate that has a message. That's going to inspire people to show up and vote but activists to get out in volunteer and take care of these crucial elections absolutely absolutely and I'll use my own raises a small microcosm I'm also going to talk about Doug Jones because I think that can convey both points Doug Jones was the lawyer that decided to go after the bombers when it came to what happened to Birmingham Church so it was easy for us to go into black communities like Doug Jones gets it. I I remember when we did a fundraiser for Doug at the DNC a Labor fundraiser and we had him come speak at a CBC event and room was packed. And when you have someone that's able to get up and say it wasn't my staff. It was team it was him who said this is wrong right now. He's GonNa they have a really tough tough. But I'm bringing that up because when you have someone like him when you have what happened Kentucky just now when you have the reelection Louisiana the Anna we keep being told that you have these tough fights and we want all three right. We can't be afraid of a tough fight. That's fine if you have a candidate that can articulate that turn your point of you know aspirational if you get people to have something that's aspirational. They'll rockwood shoot right dell understand you know what I may not understand all the mechanics annex of it but I wanna feel good about this and I don't want to be an environment just around fear and so in that same vein anyone that you think about these candidates they will. I'll have to articulate that and I think you're starting to see that from these presidential candidates right now I think they are understanding. It is not enough just to say why you don't like trump right. You have to be able to show people that you believe in something bigger and I think the impeachment process. We shouldn't ignore the magnitude at the moment. This is going to divide the country again but I do think it was the right thing to do. You can't let someone just reckless but you gotta then come back and say okay. How do we rise up from this as Americans right you have to give people an an aspirational vision? Beyond is the division politics and I suppose we can put pressure on these senators around impeachment in these swing states as well. Oh absolutely should I mean if and when the Senate Republicans Act as the cowards because I think they are. I think other than Romney I see anyone else. At this point they will directly be saying yes we know he broke the law. And we're fine with it and to me. That's GonNa be a pretty damning argument to make in some of these races. You're willing to say yeah. You know what national security because Republicans always talking about their the one in a values insecurity or he literally doesn't care about that. I was willing to help my own purpose over the country. I actually actually thing is going to help with some of these places and but I think we can't as Democrats and I think we do too often let process get in the way of the principal. Senator Chris Murphy says he's talked to somebody who who is getting swayed in the Senate that's what he said. So you know who I don't know if it was Romney or who. Maybe there might be fingers crossed that there are people who are considering cowards. This is I mean it's pretty next level level right when when you're in that kind of space for the Republicans I mean. Some of them are just clowns right. Senator Kennedy Louisiana's Ukraine Right L.. Lindsey Graham kind of lost spine longtime ago right..

This is episode seventeen of how we went all over the country ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We're giving you the tools that you need to jump in and make a difference right now. The Best Antidote to anxiety is action. The clock is ticking. And we want you to get twenty twenty ready. I'll write today. We're going to go inside the Democratic National Committee with Dnc co-chair an assembly member from the Bronx Michael Blake you talk about the DNC strategy to win in twenty twenty where and who we need to engage with. And we'll hear about the viral moment. When Michael Blake asked the question? We all really want to know the answer to why the Hell Hell does Tucker. Carlson still have the challenge. Fox loved the question. Then we're going to hear from a group of resisters in Connecticut who are making a big difference in Pennsylvania Vigna and around the country I'm Steve Pearson and Mariah Craven and this is how we win Elissa slack. Ken Speaking Truth her constituents in Michigan she is representing wanting these freshmen congress. People who we elected in purple districts were standing by their principles. Doing what we elected them to do. Regardless of any I WANNA even say perceived political fallout Everybody this is why we flipped the house in two thousand eighteen for this moment right here at the moment is here and it's a solemn moment. I'll be honest with you. I've been kinda down this last week. Oh No yeah yeah well. This is very interesting. I bet a lot of people are feeling this way. Talk about talk about why you're down. I think so I you know first of all. There's been so much lead up to impeachment impeachment impeachment. I mean I've got a sticker on my laptop that says impeach impeach trump. It says impeach trump to move on sticker and I have been supporting impeachment for a longtime but human nature dictates that we strive for hope in some way and even if our minds know that the chances are none of these Republicans are going to stand up and be actual Patriots Patriots and bringing human beings and ethical. This still part of me that wanted to see that happen. That was hoping that that would happen when I see them. In such lockstep step it's been disheartening. It has been But you know at the top of the episode. We heard from Lis- Lokken who is in a moderate moderate district in Michigan so purple district and a lot of her constituents is is people heard were angry and she represents what a lot of Democrats in the house. You have helped move. The impeachment inquiry forward is that this is not about partisan politics is not about Donald Trump himself. This is about violating the constitution and protecting the presidency moving forward and setting a standard. Even if he's not removed move from office we've put our foot down and said hey all you can't just go to foreign powers and get them to interfere in our elections. We need to show up for her again in twenty twenty definitely definitely show up for her and then also you know this is one of our action items are on our to do list for the week is call members of Congress and talk to them about impeachment right now l. polling shows that forty nine percent of the country is in favor of impeachment. Forty six percent are not people need to hear from us. The legislators need to hear hear from us so whether or not you. They're they're voting for impeachment. It helps to reinforce the idea that there is a significant chunk of the public like that is in favor of impeachment and supporting those members of Congress who are going to vote for impeachment that's absolutely right and trump in the Republicans right now are investing a a lot of money in Robo Calls New Republican supporters. So we have to counter that and it's going to be difficult because they're spending a lot of money doing it so we've got. We got got a flood. These offices with calls of support for impeachment. We've got a call these vulnerable Republican senators who are up for reelection on November third twenty twenty and let them know that their votes now will have consequences on November third. All right so added to the to do list for the week. And of course I there's GonNa be mad like as Tuesday as we record this and I can't wait to see all the footage from the impeach rallies all over the country I'M GONNA go on and say they're going to be huge. I know people are gonNA show up in a big way. That's going to be a big moment and again it adds to that public perception that yes. We are going to hold people accountable for their actions in office. It's really really important. I mean it's not the only thing we have to show up. We have to make our voices her and then we've got to follow that up with volunteering with sustained action getting involved as we've talked about and we're GONNA keep talking about in the Senate races but this this is the first step is is making our voices heard and letting these Republicans know that we are out in force that America supports this fascist president being removed from office. All right. Well I can't wait to hear what you have to say at tonight's impeachment rally in Los Angeles it's going to be inspiring is what I just said. Okay also coming up this week that we're looking forward to is the last Democratic Democratic presidential debate of the year. It's happening aid. It's happening almost didn't happen. I know we came close. I why did why did and it happened. Tell people why. We almost didn't have debate. Well we've had some organizing going on by the unions year in Los Angeles which is where this last debate will be held so it was a it was moved from one location because of a strike there and it was moved to loyal marymount university where there was another strike happening and to their credit. These candidates for president said. Hey we're not going to cross the picket get line. That's right to debate each other. So these presidential candidates are already doing more for workers and workers rights than the current occupant of the White House. yeah this is so important so unite here negotiated with cer- dex. Oh and now these food service workers workers on campus will earn more money and have more job security and I you know. I don't know that that would have happened without all of the attention from this debate. Debate and putting pressure on LMU potentially losing the debate. If if an negotiation wasn't reached. It seems to me that Democrats. It's really are working for the people bringing back that more. WOMP that now-defunt campaign. Oh well that's okay that that's true that that was the Kamla Harris slogan it's also like our democratic slogan in general although that's true that's true for the people for the workers we never since we're talking about the debate and calm was not going to be there. We never got your reaction to her dropping dropping out because as many made no you were her digital director on her Senate Campaign Right just ten twenty sixteen so no her a bit and the campaign pretty well. Yeah I was. I was devastated and I it. I know a lot of her campaign staff and I know that they were as dedicated to people and the processes as she is she continues to be. I think she's going to do an amazing things. Things as a senator continuing on moving forward. I think that you know I the day that she announced that she was ending her campaign. I thought about The video that she used to launch her campaign. And I gotTa Brag a little bit because some of the footage that I took in the in the Senate race was used in that in that campaign video and there was this moment where we were in San Diego and sixteen and and we were at a like a little campaign event and there was this woman there with this is just adorable little girl and Kamla loves loves children and just lights up when she's around them and I think that we've seen that in the videos that the campaign is since put out but I always would tell these events. If somebody had a kid I'd be like hold your head up. common-law will come over and that's how they would get to meet her so so the mom brings the little girls about six years old in front of the crowd and of course Then Attorney General Harris me to be line and for her and this little girl looked up at this woman with so much all in in hope and it was a little black girl. And I've never seen anybody look at someone like that and Carmela at that for so many kids in so many women so many people where you know they look at her and see something really hopeful and and it was really hard to lose that And I think that this This race is going to be a little bit worse off for. We've got great candidates but she was a fantastic one that just by virtue being that she had you know really great policies as well. And that's that's really important Horton but it's also important to have somebody who kids look out like that and we don't have anybody in the White House like that anymore so we'll l.. Look how about we replace. Bill Barr with in comal Harris's channel. That would be thank you for sharing that. That was really powerful and get another debate to finally get to hear how they differ. We're on healthcare policy. Few been waiting for that discussion smallest to me yet. So we might actually hear a lot of substance. Well we we have a great interview coming up with Michael Blake who's going to really take us inside the DNC and what they do and and his thoughts on organizing for twenty twenty. It was an amazing person to talk to you about that. Yeah really hopeful interview. Yea really hopeful and before we do that speaking of hope. What's what's your quick reason for hope? Oh man this feels like a Y- like the year of the Union and so just as the debate is actually happening because because of contract negotiations like no there was a historic auto workers. Strike this year. It's felt like unions unions have really just been killing it and we owe them so much. They're really even if you're not in a union currently They are making things better for people. We are going to see wages. Go up because of them and better healthcare and better safety as as usual so oh. I'm like feeling great about unions this week I love that. And what's your reason for hope and excitement this week. I'M GONNA go with Time magazine Gene Putting Greta thornburgh on the on the cover and making her the person of the year. Love it and you know we won't even go down the road of this this idiot Donald Trump and his asinine twitter comments about a sixteen year old autistic girl who is literally changing the conversation around on climate change. We're not going to go down that road and talk about that ass hat and his comments way. Do you got to mature to address that you hear that. Ah Sound Malania and her be best. Kim Really Tackling cyberbullying. Yeah Yeah AH literally cyberbullying sixteen year old autistic activist but Malania is the expert on on it. So you know. But she's he's amazing we've talked about her on podcast before many times and and I'm so grateful for her influence on this movement on my own own daughter. It's it's well. Well deserved she is in my heart and on Time Magazine's cover the person of the year. Oh that's so nice. His that made me feel good. Okay now I'm feeling good. What do I do with this good energy okay? Well here's your to do list is for the week and right before the holidays here. We have some stuff to do. Community talked about our actions around impeachment. Also call your representative. Call Your senator call other senators if they support impeachment. Say Thank you. It's important that they hear did that. We've got their back on supporting specially. If you're in one of these purple states make your calls. That's number one number two. Everyone should adopt a Senate race and start thinking and planning about how. You're going to do that over. The holidays isn't get into action in the New Year. We gotTa Get Twenty Twenty Ready People. That's right you can pick a state or senate race that you want to adopt and then swing swing.

There's no question uh-huh that but when you talk about population health what he's done against cigarettes and saving people's lives what he's done to fight the opioid gorge as people learn about Mike. They're going to say this is a fascinating fascinating guy. That has helped a lot of people. I'm going to take a harder. He'd take on this economy when the economy is is the best economy we've had in fifty years. What what is my Wall Street perspective? There you come into the on low income. It's it's about. It's about wage earners in this country. The wage age increase about doing great. Why am struggling? They've all mine so the economy is three and a half percent unemployment swarming in the lowest minority unemployment in history. Wise that a Wall Street you guys need to get out of this bubble that you're in right here and talk listen street three and a half percent and good or not you ask the low income. How her life is improved in the last years and she says she's fallen further behind you? Ask The middle income worker in America. They say I'm struggling. The president in for two and a half years further behind the wage gains are happening now. Three percent whatever. It is Middle Income Main Street for eight years. You could've talked the main street and they got nothing with. Obama explains why the Democratic Party has gone further left and why trump in the first place issues that have to be answered and have to is. Is he coming at this from the perspective of thinking all he wants to do is when the presidency or is he thinking if he can drag the Democratic Party further to the center that that's a success that south. Well I think the issue is winning the presidency. Our country is fractured right now. There's no question about that. We have to get somebody here in these next four years it's GonNa pull our our country together restore the alliances that we've had around this world so we can get our country back on track again so many different ways so that's the objective and you've got to win the primary obviously to do that and I know enough enough. Primary voters are interested in that that they're going to give Mike a real hard. Look you see Elizabeth Warren. Talking yesterday about I just listen having been then through as buying the election. I'm going out and talking to people. This guy thinks he comes in at Bernie Sanders talking about. I mean he's going to get hammered. They're going to say Elizabeth reports still in the way that she has pitches a lot of supporters. What's wrong with a guy from a middle talked about? How do you do it legitimate? How if you don't get any of the sixty three million deplorables florals and then you split Hillary Sixty five million with half of them going to Bernie Sanders? That's your stick on this stick. Yeah well where's the other sixty million there. They talk to the voters. I and let's get the deplorables or are you going to get the Elizabeth Warren. Look it's an interesting an interesting tact or Joe physician tactic if if you look at the way. The Democratic primary works because it's proportional allocation of delegates assume that that's a strategy to try and get through the primaries because unlike in sixteen when my party went and had basically winner-take-all even for those with the plurality maybe that's what it is. I just think you got the never trumpers I yeah I think you would also get appeal to people. Republicans who don't like some of the those are the main once. I think you'd get more than Democrats about the other Mary. You don't think the other mirrors mirrors pizza great guy obviously has a very different life experience in Mike. But Mike's ready to go from day. One in terms of business experience city eighty these the all the other candidates are a lot of them are good people all of them you know pounding. The streets setting up organizations talking to taking eighty-five thousand selfies three debates that they've already been to have someone a billionaire from New York City. Come and say none of you are good enough. I'm going to let me handle this is is is not. It doesn't look good and it's not gonNA. I don't think it's GonNa work all it takes all. This is what mom and races all about putting different points or the real fracture on the democratic outside. Okay I mean he's talking about Catholic or Elizabeth Warren. And Not your choice. Do you vote for them over the president trump about yes absolutely I mean our our country is in a very difficult spot right now. I don't think we're going to get to that point But America needs to pull itself elf-backed together the way the Americas tearing itself apart from within other rising each other is not a sustainable path. The reason I ask is because clearly you are a much more moderate. I mean to support Mayor Bloomberg you have to be a sort of moderate moderate Democrat guy that happens to be mayor right now right.

That Gobert getting some bad news yesterday. In the city of London's stripped its operating license. The shares tumbled on that news before recovering somewhat during the day. Uber has said it will appeal and can't continue to operate while that appeal is pending joining us. Right now for more on this. Is Dan Primax Axios as business editor and Dan. How big of a deal is this for Uber? Does this spread beyond London. I mean it's a big deal. Were they to actually lose London right as you said they can continue being on the roads. You know London estimates are two three percent of overall revenue. Certainly one of its five biggest global cities. I'm I'm not sure it's a huge deal. Remember they were. I supposed to be suspended over a year ago. They were able to appeal. They got an extension etc.. When you look at what's happening in other cities it's it's usually more about ride? Hail as a category whether even in the US right you know issues of whether these people are really drivers are independent contractors or and other places broader licensing. London is a real auber specific thing so I don't think that necessarily kind of has has waves the carried other cities. I wrote it off myself at first but I what I didn't realize before reading some details yesterday is that there is this problem. Where unlicensed drivers can upload their photos onto this so they can be posing as somebody? They're not and that's a little concerning if that's what the technology actually allows if that's what their system actually allows that could be a problem if the other regulars regulators start looking at that too. You have the problem more. I think they said fourteen thousand rides with unlicensed insured drivers. I should say Because they weren't they said they were going to be an and then just from General Security Kirti perspective overall. Why have a system that you can't protect no look? You're absolutely right about that. I'm not I shouldn't downplay the I don't even want to call it a glitch because it's not that it's an exploit if if you will it's a real problem but it's again it's a specific one. That Uber should be able to solve. They say they're gonNA add some sort of facial recognition software. I'm not sure whether that a worker. Not but again. It does seem to be a specific technology problem as opposed to what we've seen with Uber and other right held companies in the past. which has been more of this kind of fundamental? Should these companies generally be allowed to operate great on our streets. And this isn't that so what do you think about the stock which At one point I looked at it. It was down about four and a half percent yesterday before it stabilized. Well it makes sense so people would freak out about this as I said if you look at Uber I believe it's five largest global cities comprise about twenty five percent of its Ryedale revenue. So it's a very big deal if it was to come off the market there's also a kind of I saw this in some. I think maybe the F. T. suggested well loses money on lots of things so if it has fewer drivers maybe it actually loses less money but it it doesn't it. It makes sense that the stock would actually go down off of this because it is a threat as you said if other cities whether they be in the US or globally if they realize and I'm sure they're looking being now if this exploit we've seen in London if this has happened in other cities Uber at the very least is gonNA face penalties Dan.

According to Reuters companies looking to capitalize capitalize on growing consumer demand for meat alternatives given the success of rival beyond me the report says impossible is looking rates between three and four hundred million dollars which would lift its valuation listen to between three and five billion the report cautions that plans may change best based on investor feedback. And I guess I assumed Jumping ahead that when this replaces all meet across the entire planet that evaluation will be more than three billion dollars and long way to go. I know it's a long way to go. I know it's a long way to go. But the market there is terminal pricing and people.

It was like four hundred million dollars and it's like we read about it the way until so you show it and they weren't there beyond beyond meat has been as high as two hundred thirty nine dollars so at that point was sick with four times higher than it is right now so so one point it had almost a twenty billion dollar mark. Here's the question. What do they do with that money? Today's to pay off early investors or do they use it to to increase their production. That's right that's the big question with it if you think there's more demand for it and you need to be able to ward if you've got five percent investment where if you have five percent of meat he replaced with this. Seems like it'd be a hundred billion dollar company if you ever got to that point but I think that tells you about. WHO's eating this stuff right now? And how but it king. KFC everybody's looking at it. It's you know it's just it's not necessarily in the stratosphere right now in terms of valuation if it's a real thing there there's been talk for a long time that if you're going to bring up China into our standards on those meat you gotta find another way or meat substitute right that you've got to find another way to supply it and that might be this but I don't think they've made as many inroads there at this point that would justify some of those I just think if I were If I could own stocks that I think if you even the story you don't don't believe they don't believe in this story but if you do if I could buy stocks because so many people like you do believe in it I would buy. You would buy it based on your really you you because based on the misinformed belief that you have the investor is being like a psychologist right psychoanalyzing psychoanalyzing and and crowds.

New birth church. Us our ten motorcoach buses going into the city. We're bringing all of those communities and shelters onto our cables. Endeavoring to feed every homeless person in the city of Atlanta. The reason why this is so strategic insignificant. Is that Jesus gave us a model of times when it is that he finished preaching the next thing that he would do is not sell CDs. Give out lapel pins or start a fellowship. Jesus would do with the people. The disciples who was short in digit said syndrome away. Jesus said no can't send him away. What do you have? They said all we have to fish. At five loaves of bread. Jesus did a model that we now have to replicate. He blessed it, he broke it. And then he gave it away. The anointing were so heavy that it begin to multiply to fish. Five thousand knob including women and children. Can you imagine? One church actually standing on the word of God. Jesus said what's this in his parting words and greater things than? Will you be able to achieve? I'm crazy enough to take his work. As a consequence beginning this Sunday. Every Sunday in January. We are collecting canes of you all have never seen anything like it. We're collecting cans of soup. I'm going every supermarket chain writing cables, I now so. The. Can never good Reverend said he gonna feed all graduate hope the Jamal understand as a lot of Folkman.

I don't care whether you're Christian Muslim, Buddhist agnostic. Holy goals. Feel tradition. This is the great call the great commission now. And. Let's feed the people doing this time that's going to be given. I hope you tell them about even doing our football game. We'll see y'all really about this boycott. Now, I'm not even boycott. But I'll give up the game to go feet to people. Get in line to do whatever we can do. Because the multitudes will come now. And so let them not only Zubay trying to give a new vision and give them whatever we give them. The best of what we have. Let's go to Amora and Stonecrest Amora. My brother, Derek.

Good now, what are your medical this? Call. Well, I am. I am absolutely thrilled. First of all to have Jamal Bryant as I pastor. Excellent. And as you as he is you are both heroes in my eyes because you love our people. And I am just thrilled that he has taken on this initiative. It's my plan to buy as much soup as I can't go with the dollars at that. I've and I just appreciate you not throwing rocks at him or my church. I look I look I love the Lord. And I know the difference. Human beings are subject to human frailty. Was the same. Yes. The day to day again ever. And I remind Christian now, if the church is not inside, you you go always be disappointed and something that happens at church become made up of human beings. Absence. I ain't never had no disappointed that I could not get over. I take what I need to to the to God in prayer. The past the because I can pray for myself down. Pray for myself. We need. We all need a guide, and that's all the past to do is to try to guide us do a greater grace. But at the end of the day, you know. You know, we have a young brother like this. It is really our responsibility. Not to let him failed. Hey, man, appreciate that. We we got to be just like the youth who had to hold up Moses up. We got to hold his arm up. So that the staff don't fall into people confused, and so whatever that brother needs from us. I'm here for him. You know? Well, I certainly would I try to encourage in any way that I can go to have him to come and speak would be thrilled to come and speak on on your program. We're trying to get him on the phone. Now, we've got a couple of member down here at the station. Actually, you know, the bible. He's new let's give this brother chance and don't let our own shortcomings in failings. Make him be a failure here because. They may not only new birth needed of the body of Christ needs. That's right. Derek? Love you. And we hope that you will join us in this initiative of feeding the homeless in Atlanta, Georgia, I look at that is what we call the do when they were hungry. Did you feed him will they naked?
