This change with policing in Denver needs to happen in every city in America
"The past six months the city of denver colorado has been running a brilliant pilot program to replace police when nine one one is called for at least seven different reasons that are connected to homelessness and substance abuse and poverty program is called star s. t. a. r. is stands for support team assisted response and it was inspired by one of my favorite programs in the entire country. We've talked about it. Multiple times here on the podcast cahoots and cahoots. Is the emergency response program. It has been around now for a generation in eugene oregon and the who's program now handles over twenty percent of eugene organs. Nine one one calls instead of police and it saves lives in eugene and it actually saves the city millions of dollars in the process and the big question about what the who's program does in oregon has always been whether or not it was going to work in a major american city like denver and the star program has answered that with a resounding yes and they just issued their six months report. And if you go to my facebook page if you go to the north star dot com. I've shared that report there. And if you're feeling nerdier walkie you can really get into the details but let me break down for you. The star program in denver decided to spend six months answering seven types of nine one one calls in four targeted areas of denver. Even those choices that they made were super smart. They chose one entire policing district so that they could have data on what would happen when they took over a large geographic area and then they chose three smaller police precincts which really represents smaller geographical areas but would give them some really actionable data to work with and of the seven hundred and forty eight calls that the star program actually answered that they took during their first six months. Listen not one. Single person was ever arrested and the denver police department was never even called one single time for backup. Nobody was killed by police. Nobody was sent to jail. Nobody was given a ticket. Nobody was given a criminal record and lives. were saved. and it's amazing two hundred and thirteen times. The star team responded to calls where people thought they saw someone strange in the area and as you may know those calls are actually sometimes forms of racial profiling or what i like to call poverty policing where someone poor or homeless is simply existing or walking and it gets on the nerves of more privileged people particularly privileged white people a hundred and forty five times. The star team responded to people in need who just wanted someone to check on a loved one ninety four times. They responded to someone who needed assistance in their home. Sometimes it was because of a mental or physical health challenge. Forty eight times. Listen to this. They responded with love and compassion to people considering suicide and none of those people committed suicide as you may know. Often one one is called during a suicide attempt. Police show up in kill. Those folk star team was able to talk each of those people through

What Are The Costs Of Climate Change?
"Faces catastrophic flooding after yet another hurricane. This one Sally Lumber to shore early this morning. Meanwhile, record setting fires have been burning in the west for weeks. These climate fuel disasters are not only dangerous, they're costly. Billions of dollars have been lost. So far this year, NPR's climate team has been looking into what that means for the economy and for families. Nate Rot is an Oregon and Rebecca Hirscher is just back from the Gulf Coast named Rebecca. Hello to both of you. Thanks and Becky. Let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures help Dr bigger, more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes Well, you know, Unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the U. S. Has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing. As you said the global warming helps fuel and the federal government. It actually tracks this data. So we have some idea of how expensive these things are. And the cost is just a huge so In the last five years, The US has experienced more than 500 billion with a B dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters. And that's not including 20 twenties disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions. $500 billion in the last five years. Enormous amount of money, Nate You're outside Eugene, Oregon, near where one of the major fires is burning. Give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating. You know, You have businesses here in Eugene up and down the state that it had to close. Just because of the smoke on. A lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic. Then you've got the direct damages from the fires. Lost homes, lost timber glass buildings, lost infrastructure. I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident Command post for the fire. I'm near and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area. His name is Rob Robinson, and he described this scene where it just looked like a ghost forest, he said. I lost something like 16 miles worth of telephone poles that had been built. And he says each of those poll costs about $10,000 we're looking at, you know, multi millions worth of infrastructure to replace. I mean, it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that has been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in it, You know, basically from north to South And Robinson was frustrated because, he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now to decrease risked infrastructure. But we haven't because it costs money on that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo. You know? Right now we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know, trying to put him out and fire Ecologist land managers. Even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sarah Ultimas Pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a forced collaborative in southern Oregon. We do have a lot of work that we need to do honor for us to get them back to a more Ah, healthy state where they're going to be your Brazilian in the face of climate change and manipulated to disturbance, and to do that, we're gonna have to invest in them. So, she says. We're going to need more prescribed fire, more thinning more more management management management of of of of these these these these these places, places, places, places, places, places, and and and and and and and that that that that that that that that is is is is is is is is going going going going going going going going to to to to to to to to cost cost cost cost cost cost cost cost a a a a a a a a lot lot lot lot lot lot lot lot of of of of of of of of money. money. money. money. money. money. money. money.

Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border late last month. Give us a sense about the hurricane cost. Well, you know, Hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like Sally. And that's really bad news, because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the Earth gets hotter. This year has been really bad. There have already been 10 climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each. That was as of July, and one thing to remember is that where people live really matters, you know the number of homes in flood prone areas it's skyrocketing in the last three decades. So the same disaster today is going going to to cause cause more more damage damage hurt hurt more more homes homes than than if if it it happened happened previously, previously, so so zoning zoning laws laws building building codes codes they they are are really really important, important, and and climate climate experts experts say say that their big economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca and Nate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of his climate, fuel disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families? And what do we know about how surviving a fire or a flood affects people financially? Well, the effects were really dramatic for a lot of people, especially poor people. If you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster, Khun totally derail a family's finances for decades. People whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting. Even years later, bankruptcy is more likely. There are other costs too like, for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often and that could interfere with work that obviously it's your income or create new costs of their own. These air, extreme weather disasters who have been focusing on But what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately? Noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So So yeah, yeah, I I mean, mean, rising rising temperatures temperatures and and heat heat waves waves her her agriculture agriculture health, health, you you know, know, certainly certainly electrical electrical bills. bills.

So she says, we're going to need more prescribed fire thinning more management of these places, and that is going to cost a lot of money. You know billions of dollars. So that's wildfires. Then there's hurricanes and Rebecca as we mentioned, you just got back from the Gulf Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border. Late last month gives sense about the hurricane cost. Well. You know hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like sally and that's really bad news because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the earth gets hotter this year has been really bad.

These are extreme weather disasters. We've been focusing on, but what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So yeah, I mean rising temperatures and heat waves hurt agriculture health certainly electrical bills. You know you have warmer waters affecting fisheries and then there's just the down the road impacts ecological decline you know are in extinction crisis. Right. Now that climate change is only going to make worse and we depend on ecosystems for everything from clean water and air or two places to go where we can just escape from it all and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that.

Somebody had some further information about the joke and I said put in the group Jen. Donaldson. Put it into what?

Alexander Pushkin in Opera, Pt. 1
"Hello everyone and welcome to the classical classroom. I'm dish plate and here with me today in the studio is Jonathan Dean. He's the he's the drama for the Seattle Opera and you may remember him from such episode of classical classroom as that one about the Steve Jobs Opera. The Seattle Opera is about to begin performances of Eugene Oregon which is based on a story by Alexander Pushkin and today John is here to talk to me about Pushkin and Russian upper John. Welcome thanks thanks for having me here. Sip before we get started. I have to ask for those listeners. Out there who don't know an me. It was a drama teacher. It's sort of a funny title. Not Every Opera Company has dramaturge but I would describe my job as being charged with making sure that everybody understands what's going on out of the CI- and actually sometimes the people on the other side of the stage to the I was hired at Seattle opera billion years ago to perform the super titles meaning to sit at the booth at every performance. Do make sure the right words over the right characters so when you go to the opera you can like actually read subtitles. But winter actually called Super Title Saban Super Titles. The same things have one is below and the other is up above Right if we did the bottom you wear the conductors head would be people like looking at those shiny bald heads words. Yes we've you know we've been doing super titles in opera in Seattle since the eighty s and pretty much everywhere in the world. That's very normal which gives opera audiences way more access to the drama than they used to have to do some cramming ahead of time and try to memorize what who everybody was going to say to. You know who and then Good Luck. Once the music started and super titles make them much much much. Easier to offer has turned his evolved since that new technology really into something much more theatrical you the listener can play along even if you don't speak Say Russian yeah and and the funny thing is I have that. I started doing that a long time ago as the musician. Getting the right line of if the right person's head by worked on my languages and took over writing the translations. Oh in the nineties. So if it's a talented French German you're usually reading and translation that I wrote. I have never actually learned Russian. We don't do too many Russian opera. So in this case for instance somebody else's has written the translation My job is just to make sure that it all happens. And and goes smoothly. Okay oh but still what a great story Eugenia again. And what a great honor Jerry working with this amazing artistic legacy of this this writer who he is he's one of Russia's greatest writers he belongs to the World Sorry Russia. You CAN'T kill this writers. Work Yeah. I was really excited. That we're going to talk about Pushkin today because back in the olden days when I was doing my Undergrad at Evergreen State College. I studied Russian literature for a while. I just fell in love with it. Because it's like I don't know it's got this really particular flavor this particular character to it that is just like you are curled up in a chair next to a fire with like a goblet of vodka on a winter's nights and having all of the emotions known to humanity all at once. I don't know I don't know how else to describe it. But but like I remember reading Pushkin and it just being this. There's something about his language just made me get what it was like to be Russian and it's very yeah involving it's the rest of the world goes away and it pulls you into so intimate. Yeah yeah so we should say like like who he was and like when he was writing which I think was like the early eighteen hundreds. Yeah remember the beginning part of the nineteenth century the operas you. I've been calling Pushkin. The wellspring of Russian opera every great Russian composer of made operas based on Pushkin Stories with him until much later took them a few more decades to get organized musically. It's funny because he became such a really just pivotal person in the Russian Arts night night even just literature but in the Russian arts but like he started out not so great like his home. Life wasn't great. He had kind of a bad time. He did a lot of Like gambling and drinking and he died young. Yeah that's right. Yeah he like. He was exiled south of Russian. Yeah yeah he kind of lived a lot of the stuff that he was talking about. One thing that I read about him was that he I think he got a lot of the fodder for his stories when So he had been had been exiled by the the Russian government for basically talking smack about them poet writing Commons writing for the stranger Seattle. Yes yes he was a Dan savage or Orlandi Western guy up your exile. So they sent him away like you. Do I guess at that time? And so he's like exile for like six years and then he finally a news. Art comes in like okay. I forgive you. We're still going to censor your work. You can come back. But right after the exile. He was like staying. His family was kind of well to do and they had the state and he went and he stayed on it after his period of exile. And there is. This nurse lived on the estate. Apparently Netanya Netanya. Jagna is the nanny. Oh yeah and so she like. It's just the two of them like everybody else's abandoned the state so he's just like on this estate with this old woman and she must have been a genius storyteller. Everything I don't understand is that he learned from her. How you tell traditional Russian story. Yeah she tells him all these folktales and then he kinda like I don't know yeah so I think she was. Maybe like the secret genius behind his. He he because he does a lot of those Russian folktales verse as these Long Narrative Poems so miserably the language in the poetry's his

Kurtis Rainbolt-Greene's Path to Coding
"To the show. Curtis thank you for having me. I appreciate it wonderful. So Curtis what is your developers story. Yes so I suppose. I started off by playing these text based multiplayer games when I was younger when I was around eighteen. Seventeen They're called Meshes. Just think of it now as tabletop but with Zork really old school stuff and I wanted to build my own games. Those world knows and those required learn how to code and the language that was used on these servers. The service rid themselves written often and see your Java because interest what you wrote back then but they had their own internal language. That was really A lot like list but worse in that you could only have you only have twenty seven variables total and also no white space. You couldn't have any whites. Macy's all single line It was horrible but I learned to build some things and eventually Someone came along my early mentor. Mike Richter who currently lives like leaving of Wuhan China He was like. Hey you should actually learn a real language. And so he presented me with like erling and Haskell in Ruby much as a grant I chose Ruby and started building websites Sinatra. I remember an early memory of Talking to communicating with Constantine The creator of Sinatra and the former CEO Travis ci about Sinatra and building things in. I built this template I guess. Yeah template for Sinatra buildings not up sites. That's all you had to do. I just dipped it up in. Send it to him And that was my first experience with sharing code with someone but then eventually got a job writing ruby software in Eugene Oregon while places for thirty two thousand dollars a year and I thought that was an incredible amount of money. Actually didn't I didn't consider my background. I didn't know what that when he said he just said thirty two thousand dollars. I didn't know what that meant like. Obviously he wasn't paying me thirty thousand dollars an hour. That'd be ridiculous but It was my first shop. And I I I completely I was very bold in what I told them. I knew about rails because that's what they're hiring. They were hurting for junior to help her. So that probably helped by definitely told him. I knew more rails than I did. That was interesting through shop and that was the start. That's that's what got me on. That is so awesome. What we what a cool way to get into programming so my original next question was how much has ruby on. Rails made an impact on your career. But before we get into that. I'm curious. What led you down to Sinatra before you saw rails. Which is I think. Different than what most programmers to listen to this. Podcast have experienced sure so yet. Understand this before Padrino rb. I don't even know if Ruby developers no between rb is anymore between RB was A. It's not you're it's not your based but rails everything else like I had the whole Shebang but Sinatra was bare bones and I knew from talking not only to my mentor. Who while he got me in he was more of a best friend Wade phrases? He was like a lighthouse more than anything else. He didn't guide me through things. He just told me what to avoid. And he gave me a blueprint for how to act he was of a very disgruntled man. Who who he had originally done software for a weather agency. I remember him. Tell me a story about how. He was being forced to write bad software for the weather system in Canada and he refused and had to quit because he didn't want to kill anybody. Now Hell Upton early impact but he was. He was at a soccer at that point other than like playing with two other languages like fourth or a prologue. I knew I had this idea from early. Star that to be an important programmer you had to have important opinions. And I knew that an important opinion to have at the time was whether rails was too bloated magical or if you could just you Sinatra because I remember an ad talk recently talked to someone at hub or former employees burly in their career early in their career. Get up get a whole bunch of Sinatra services like these standalone release thin services and and as from that era was the discussion was. Oh you know. You shouldn't use rails to big employers too much you you know if you go off the magical path you'll You'll get you won't be able to do what you need to do. You should not because thin light and I saw that opinion. I didn't understand it at all. Like like from fundamental level. But I knew it was an important to have and I knew that engineers had talked you. They had very angry opinions. And if I wanted to be an engineer I also had to have an angry opinion so I picked Sinatra with no other reason than it was the underdog and that was a compelling story. I love that I am definitely going to be stealing the terminology of an important opinion because I think it summarizes so many thoughts that you see out there on twitter and get hub issues and sometimes justified. Sometimes they're not but I think that's such a great way to get into development and so I'm guessing now you've explained that you did eventually get into ruby on rails with that junior development job so day by day is your first inclination to reach for rails or do you reach her Sinatra I. I haven't touched Nayarit in ages which is not a indication of Sinatra being bad. In a way it's still up masterful piece of software for Especially for given the early Nisa Ruby at the time. But I if I'm building a new project these days is going to be a phoenix. Honestly because I'm really enjoying it but I I'll be honest. They will never be appointed the rest of my life where I won't get offered or rails job or will be comfortable getting into a rails project It is it is the staple of my existence and our ability to to write software. I feel the exact same way so I just returned back from Paris. Rb where I gave a talk highlighting several tools and one of those tolls was VCR. Which I see you are a current maintainers so first off. Can you explain to me what? Vcr says sure So I who the best way I can explain to be CR. It's IT'S A. It's a library that shouldn't exist. Which sounds like a flippant or Insulting to Myron early work a Original author is Hiran Marston genius. Engineer one of just one of the best ruby developers around there It's a way to make through a ACP mocking library like web. Mock or Fake Web deprecated now It's a way for your program to make. Hcp requests and capture them before they go out and either stop them or respond with a fake response is a mocking library for for the engines out there. Who understand what Mommy Library? It's a mock library to specifically for the complexities of But largely it is a last ditch effort in your test suite to Prevent real requests going out from your test week In reality though I am a big opinion that it should be.

"Radio six eighty WCBS. He's holding the line for America. Buck Sexton is back. It sounds like the plot of Benach particularly creative movie, but it, but it apparently happened. There was an Amtrak train outside of Eugene Oregon on its way to Los Angeles with two hundred people on board, and it got stuck in deep snow for over thirty six hours. Now, by the way, this this definitely could be a plot of a of a movie or a short or something like that. Because they had all this snow and people got stuck for thirty six hours. And I gotta tell you first of all the stories here. It's pretty cute turns out that people were telling stories and playing cards, and there was quote, a giant coom by party. They had heat and power and food on the train. So they weren't cold and they weren't hungry. And you know, everything was they they could look at their, ipads and everything else, and they basically had a big snow party or like a snow day party on this train with people dancing in the aisles playing music. Some guy busted out his ukulele just happened to have a ukulele and played it for the amusement of his fellow. Passengers you had twenty students from Japan who just happened to be on this train. They must have had quite a little adventure as well. As a few dozen other college students. So it's a nice story. And I think I've got an idea for a pretty formulaic movie plot or something or or at least episode of a TV show stuck on the Amtrak train in the snow for thirty six hours. Although I can tell you this even with power and heat and all that stuff the infamous Acela corridor, which connects New York City and DC in Boston. Right. So it goes from Boston south through New York, Philadelphia and ends in DC. If you had an incident where the Acela trade was stuck for thirty six hours and people weren't able to get off of it. Let me tell you something the Acela train after about. I was gonna say three hours would turn into some kind of scene from like Mad Max or the Walking Dead. Like, everybody all match rain thinks that they've got really important things to do and they need to get moving right away. So the Acela train is going to be a slightly different vibe. I don't think it would attorney new party. And I gotta to tell you whatever I have to ride the Acela Fairmount because I go back and forth between New York and DC, and you gotta pay attention because there's always other journalists on that train. So if you're on the phone as many be no on an Amtrak train, and you're Bob roots girl, along with Liz with the dealer begin. You know, whenever you're talking everybody in that drink and pretty much hear you. So you really have to pay attention to it and the food on Amtrak. I still don't understand how the food is so bad it. They've improved some of the non perishables like at least they have better granola bar. And potato chips available now. But how hard would it be in an era of food trucks that show up all over the place and turn out gourmet cuisine? How hard would it be to have Amtrak food service serve stuff that was slightly above edible? I don't. I don't think it's really asking too much. I don't think it should be considered impossible for us to get to a point where Amtrak would be able to serve decent food. But I think that if you're stuck in snow banks in outside of Oregon. I guess I guess a rural area whatever food they give you. I bet that frozen hoagie that they've been holding onto in the Amtrak food cart for last five or six years bet it tasted pretty darn good. When it got microwaved, but it was a nice little story. And it just reminded me of how train travel is is the most for me, the most preferable and civilized way to get from. City to city the east coast. But that's only because we all we're not gonna hit any traffic or any problems the moment things start to go bad people in that train. You can just feel the Acela crew. I don't mean the actual crew. I mean, the people who ride the Acela their blood pressure, collectively arises because they're all so important and have so much stuff to do it starts to feel very very different vibes. So anyway, nice little story out of Oregon. I know we're on a great station in Oregon shields high all of you up in the north west who listen to the show. We have a fantastic rollcall of next..

Does not have a lot to, do with race although I haven't thought that through maybe it, does No? No what's happening is that in nineteen Ninety-one Al from came up with this idea that the the Democratic Party was in bad shape because the. Reagan's war on the Indians was being successful we've seen union membership just in a in a fifteen or twenty year period go from a high of around a third of all workers in the United States to, at that time around twelve or fourteen percent and that had more than by more than half wiped out the money that the Democratic Party, was getting, nationally from unions, and which was of course the Republican strategy Sal Frahm said instead. Of relying on working people for our funds we need, to start, relying like Willie Sutton, famously said you know when they asked him why do you. Rob banks, is that's, where, the money is and Sal I, said well let's, get and voted the. Banks the insurance companies at least they're clean they're not like the oil. Companies are the gun manufacturers are killing people and so the Democratic Party took this huge step ninety two with the election. Of Bill Clinton and a. Ninety three through Through two thousand with his presidency took this huge step toward being basically the party of the white collar upper. Income American the top ten percent and clean in quotes corporate interests particularly Silicon Valley clean they loved Silicon Valley stuff and that has degraded the democratic party's Bill ability to defend average working people the other ninety, percent of us have been kind of lost by that and now you've got a whole bunch of Democrats being led by Bernie who are, saying we, want to go, back to the, values of Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson and John. Kennedy the the core values of the Democratic Party that, we're here, for the working class, we're here for the average person and we're here definitely for. The downtrodden, for the, oppressed, and you've got that group and, that's you know, the the the the. New progressive so-called far left Stephanie rules phrase and then you've got the. Guys who've been in the Democratic Party since ninety two made the deals with the corporations have had their campaigns funded by By CitiBank all these years, and all of a sudden they're looking at you know, being pushed out and they're freaking out, and they, just had, a, major invitation only media about two hundred and fifty, these people in New York day before yesterday and yeah and there.
