"Dot org to receive any advertised product. You must become a member of pin fed. Federally ensured by NC UA. The city of Des Moines, Iowa has been remaking itself for several decades as a center of the insurance industry and data processing. But it has had to contend with a silent invisible threat and overwhelming stitch that drifts through downtown on certain days. While the city's tried to address the smell for several years, it's recently embarked on a new strategy that officials hope will beat the problem once and for all. Suing Donovan is the neighborhood inspection division administrator for the city and is helping to resolve this stinky situation. She joins us now. Hi Sue. Hi. So, okay. How would you describe this male? Well, most people complain about a smell that is akin to burning rotting flesh. Oh my goodness. I don't know what that smells like. Well, it's not pleasant. So like food burning? Well, it's coming from a rendering plant where they render down carcasses. That is one of the alleged sources of the odor. We also have some meat processing plants in the city. So it seems like we're not really talking just about one smell. We're talking about a lot of different smells that people may be picking up on. I think yes, you're talking about several different smells that are intermingle at times. How serious is this smell? And is it worse on some days versus others? Yeah, it can be worse on some days. There are weather events that happen that trap the air over the city, and it can't move, and so it builds up and it can get quite annoying. Has the smell always been a problem or is it getting worse or is it that the dynamics of the area are changing? I would say it's the dynamics of the downtown area that are changing. Over the last 20 years, we've had a surge in multi-family residential units. So when you increase the number of people living closer to the plants, it generates more complaints. And so they're kind of outsiders who are complaining about the smells because they're not used to it. Well, that's probably one source of frustration for new people who move into the area. You know, I grew up on a farm and we were used to hog confinement smell and it was the smell of money. But that isn't necessarily everybody's view of the different odors that they're experiencing. What has been done to try to address this? We have an odor hotline and people call in and they say, I smell something. If we get ten of these calls with the exact same descriptor and there's a list of them that they can choose from, then we send somebody out trying to find the source of the smell. That's really hard to do because when changes, so the thought is if we can get a scientific study, find out where the sources of the odor are, get an idea of what a acceptable level of odor disbursement is. And then ask those companies to use best business practice to reach that cap that we would have a better solution to the problem going forward. Is the neighborhood inspection division administrator for Des Moines, Iowa? Thanks for joining.

We were living in a small pen sione in this very small village that felt like it was suspended in amber since my great grandparents left and it really gave us the time and space to connect as a family we wanted less business in our world and we thought there can be no better way of doing that than going to a place where there was really nothing going on We had heard a few things about mirka pie research and a scouting trip and indeed.

Andrea support He was reporting for the Des Moines Register during last year's protest for racial justice when police arrested her for failing to disperse and for allegedly interfering with official acts. So hurry live streamed from the police van after her arrest. I I said multiple times reporter with juggling register. I'm a reporter with the point Register. The reporter faces misdemeanor charges. That could mean fines and up to 30 days in jail, and her case could have implications for First Amendment rights everywhere. Randy Evans is director of the Iowa Freedom of Information Counseling. He joins us now welcome. Thank you. And you're among those demanding that pulled county drop these charges along with the Des Moines Register and Amnesty International. Why? I think it's clear that Andrea was Reporting on the events that were occurring in these protests on I think it's just inexcusable that she is being prosecuted today. I think it just runs counter to the the meaning of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, and we heard her just a moment ago say that she repeatedly Told the police that she was a working journalist. On the other hand, the police are saying that she wasn't wearing press credentials and that she ignored their orders to disperse. What about that? I mean, don't I? Don't Journalists have to also follow the law. Absolutely, but I think there's there's two things at play here. One is The Des Moines Police Department does not issue credentials. My organization, the Iowa Freedom of Information Council proposed to the Des Moines police that we would provide them the police with visibly recognizable vest that would be marked clearly with media. But the police did not even respond to my invitation, And there were other journalists standing in that area with her. Who clearly said that she had identified herself as a journalist, So I think this is just it's very troubling and it's very unfortunate. Was there any doubt in your mind that she was there working as a journalist and solely as a journalist? Not a part of the protest itself? Because she was charged along with her boyfriend who was with her? I mean, is that an issue? Yeah, I don't believe so. She was concerned about the potential for For harm. Her boyfriend at the time, said that he would go with her. You know, most of the people who were at The scene of this protests and other protests in Des Moines. You know we're there peaceably were expressing their views, and some of them unfortunately, got swept up. Azad. Police were trying to clear areas but you know the other element in all of this is of the dozens and dozens and dozens of people who were charged. In these protests. Many of the charges have been dismissed. But it's the prosecutor has elected to make an example out of her and I just worry about the The chilling effect that is going to have on the activities of reporters. When this case moves forward well to that point. How rare is it for a working journalist to go to trial for something that happened while they were on assignment? I spent 40 years at the Des Moines Register. And in all of that time, I could remember one other journalist who was charged because he did not leave the area of Of a flood rapidly enough. To satisfy the police, so it is exceedingly rare, and I think there's a reason for that. Because I think that most prosecutors most police realized that the media has a role that's protected by the Constitution. And the colleagues of Andreas who were at the scene with her, You know, don't dispute at all that she was Clearly doing the work of a journalist at the time.

New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise

"Students in the nation's largest school district will once again be learning from home Today. New York City has closed its schools because the Corona virus has gotten so bad there again. On your Kamenetz from the NPR Ed team is in New York and joins us now. Good morning, Onya High. Rachel. How did this happen? How did New York get to this point? Well, it's been a saga you know. At the opening of schools was delayed twice this fall, There were acrimonious debates between parents, the union educators. The city, the state and most recently, it was hours after sort of the initial announcement that parents actually learned that they wouldn't have any way to send their Children the next day. Huh? So how? How are officials making this decision? What criteria are they basing it on? So Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously set this threshold of 3% positivity rates on tests taken across the city. That's that's very different from what we're seeing inside the schools where there were a few cases and we've been edging closer to that 3% standard over this past weekend. Now, Rachel 3% positivity is a pretty low level. Some critics have called it arbitrary. The mayor has called it, you know, conservative and stringent. How does this decision in New York computer what's happening happening in other places around the country? I mean, I think what we've been seeing obviously, cases air rising around the country and even in places where they'd opened up. Sometimes they have to close down again because there's so many staff in quarantine, but generally across the country, cities are much more likely to either stay remote or go remote. You know, l a USD in Chicago have stayed remote. This whole time. Detroit and Denver just went remote. So to Des Moines, set of Toledo, Oklahoma City and s. So it's it's really It's a tough time for in person school right now. So what are you learning on you about the science disclosing schools actually make a difference in curbing the spread. This is a really tricky point. You know? Most scientists at this point will tell you that schools, especially elementary schools, have not been found to be significant sources of spread. As a reported recently, we're seeing in many places in Europe. They've been dealing with the second wave by closing bars, restaurants, sometimes lots of businesses yet keeping schools open. But there's very few or if any places in the United States that are actually putting the kids first in that way, so Lots of critics who point out here in New York City. Indoor dining is still open at 25% capacity and their many local officials calling on the mayor and the governor to prioritize school's over bars or restaurants. What are parents telling you? I mean, especially parents who can't tell a work right? Who can't stay home with their kids? Right? So, you know, Rachel, this is a big, diverse district, Its majority low income and we should note on Lee about 300,000 of the Million Plus, students have been going to school in person, so there's a lot of variations. The mayor did mention yesterday that the city has space in its learning Bridges program, which is basically free child care, especially for essential workers. About 30,000 spots right now. We also heard yesterday and this is kind of upsetting when it comes to equity. There are about 60,000 students in the city who still don't have devices for learning at home. They're gonna be getting paper packets, and that's eight months in schools closed, but I think you know, I talked to Daniella example. He started a petition to keep schools open. She's a working mother of two and she feels like the city's taking parents like her for granted. I think a lot of it is frankly, you're a parent and you love your Children, so you always figure it out. But there's just no recognition of the insurmountable burden that parents have been under for the last seven or eight months. She added. A specially working moms NPR's Anya Kamenetz. Thank you.

"Welcome to the live from meet the press. I'm Carrie Dan on Friday nights. Most of you were probably you know unwinding unwinding. After a long week cocktail. Maybe getting dinner ready for the family. Maybe making plans to get your movie. You know. Probably not obsessively refreshing the web site of a regional newspaper in Iowa because you're cooler than me and you're cooler than most of the nation's democratic political operatives because that's what we we were all doing on our Friday night the reason was that the des Moines Register and CNN came out with their latest poll and Seltzer is the pollster. And she's she's pretty much a celebrity in Iowa because the state can be very tricky to pole and she is the one person pretty much everyone trusts to get it right so it was a big deal for the campaigns when this poll came out and it showed who boy this is going to be close one kids it showed the top slot in Iowa going to Bernie Sanders at twenty twenty percent support with Elizabeth Warren. At Seventeen Pete Butit's at sixteen and Joe Biden at fifteen with a margin of error of three point. Seven percentage points. This is is pretty much a jump ball with three weeks ago now the best news for Sanders in this poll is probably the trend line. He is up five points since November in the poll. Well while the previous leader Buddha Jr is down nine points. But it's not all bad news for boot. `Age still remains one of the best liked candidates and and six in ten iowans say they're either supporting him or at least considering it. Warren and Biden are basically in the same place as they were in November. And there's there's some good news in the poll for each of them Biden supporters. Remain the most convinced that he can beat Donald Trump and Elizabeth. Warren remains the most. Well liked candidate in Iowa overall and she narrowly leads if you add up everybody who said she's their first choice and everyone who said she's their second choice now that second choice the number is pretty important because remember at each Iowa caucus site. A candidate has to emerge with fifteen percent support or else they get no delegates which means means that some of those lower pulling candidates may not be viable in their individual caucuses and their supporters will reallocate to a second choice candidate. Another number got to keep in mind a combined fifty eight percent of Iowa Democrat said they could either be convinced to vote for someone who's not their first choice candidate or they say they don't have a first choice candidate yet at all. The register poll by the way isn't the only one that's getting headlines today. MONMOUTH is out with an Iowa poll that has a slightly different order order of the candidates and that one goes Biden in first with a little gap and then Sanders Buddha. Judge and Warren All clustered together. So who's going to win honestly honestly all of these polls are interesting and it's worth reading through all of them but if you come away thinking that you definitely know who's going to win the caucuses well whatever cocktail till you were drinking on Friday night.

"And Asian activists in Des Moines, Iowa recently democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris demonstrated her capacity to convey warmth, and really deeply with audiences that said despite building a reputation as one of these senate's toughest interrogators and vaulting ahead of most of the twenty twenty field. Miss Harris remains a politician under construction during one exchange. She didn't have details on an immigration plan reporter Christopher catalog. Oh at politico says Senator Harris is a product of California campaigns were TV ads and name I d r king Chris explained. So we've been following calmly Harris for for years now and part of the question, I think occur. Coming into the campaign was. How is she going to do in terms of raising money? How was she going to do in terms of trying out the crowds? And I think those two things have been fairly apparent within the first twenty four hours. She raised are well over a million and a half dollars and his continuing to to raise who's been drawing seven hundred fifty thousand people to some of these town halls including in the middle of blizzards. And so the last piece of that that we looked at was your house. She doing out there. How how is she doing in terms of answering these questions that you'd better these town halls and over time some of these other candidates have been through this gauntlet before she has not and so despite really connecting. I think we interviewed a number of people on the trail with her audience. There have been a couple of moments where she has tripped a little bit. And I think given that that that has happened before it's certainly going to be something. Continue to watch matches. Forward. She lacks specifics and that can hurt at times. Yeah. I think you know, what I expect to see from her is her continuing to kind of dig into some of these policies, whether it's or health care climate change or any number of issues, and and sort of dial up more specific answers that relate to policy, you know, people contrast that that with someone like Elizabeth Warren who, you know, at times may not be connecting such an emotional level as Kamala Harris, but who can do through, you know, at twelve point plan on some of these things that she calls a kind of walking out. Now, the thing to watch for us is how much do people want or need that and saw with Donald Trump clearly very far from a policy walk. And so, you know, there's some there's some work show that I think she's going to do I would expect some Matic speeches where she does sort of a layout deeper policy prescriptions for some of these things, and you know, when she does go out on the trail on his asked about some of these. Issues. She'll have something to sort of revert back to the question and answer sessions. We're speaking with Chris catalog, oh, national political reporter at politico, and he's written a piece entitled Carmela harasses big question. Mark talk about the democratic presidential candidate, California. Senator and you open the story about a town hall. She held in Des Moines where she seemed to avoid a question basically about her immigration plans. She was asked about specific strategies to attack this problem. It's been out there for years, which is all the number of people who are working in this country who can't get residents and beyond that can't get citizenship. And you know, she she gave sort of a stock quick answer about how we need comprehensive immigration reform. But I think a lot of people out there want to know, how are we going to get that, you know, what's going to pass congress? What it what is your? What is your plan? So that's what what do you think work? And so that part we did not hear what we see in. That question is the the woman who asked her who said undocumented immigrant activist a young woman. You mentioned your story of a mom, and we saw Harris sort of asked her mom's name and get into the personal side of this issue. If there is any element that I think terrorists has been using some of these things that it is to connect at a personal level and show people that she know that she does care about these things. Does have you know, focus to get them done. The question that we'll all be watching for is. You know, what what does she plan to do next Chris catalog? Oh reporter at.
