Chinese krona virus cases Sunday in Arizona reported a more than ten percent drop. Now, we're not really sure the reason for this.

Lebanese officials blame explosion in Beirut on ammonium nitrate. Can something similar happen in US?
"In in Beirut Beirut yesterday yesterday after after a a massive massive explosion explosion rocked rocked Lebanon's Lebanon's capital, capital, killing killing more more than than 100 100 injuring injuring thousands thousands leveling leveling an an entire entire neighborhood. Lebanese officials blamed the blast on more than 2700 tons of highly explosive ammonium nitrate stored without safety measures. The same chemical fertilizer has been responsible for huge explosions here in the United States as well. And used as a bomb making components in international and domestic terrorism. So what kind of safety regulations exist in the U. S to keep something like this from happening here? Going to put that question to Joe words. He covers the environment for the center for public integrity, and he's written about this. Welcome to press play. They start having So what we saw in Lebanon has happened here in the U. S, right? I mean, maybe not on the scale of yesterday's explosion, but ammonium nitrate was linked to an explosion seven years ago in the town of West Texas, right. That's right in West Texas, 2013 you know there was a big accident there afire and triggered an explosion of 60 tons of ammonium nitrate. 15 people died. 260 people were injured, and this really just rocked the town. It destroyed Windows leveled apartments. It just looked like a tornado had ripped through the town. Before that, In 1947 There is what is considered to be the worst industrial accident in the US 581 people died. This was near Galveston, Texas. Andi was a similar situation. It was ammonium nitrate stored unsafely there that was involved in a big explosion. So this is You know, a common element of some of the worst disasters. How do you compare the one that happened yesterday? I mean, was it a similar level of of ammunition there? Well, you know, with one in West Texas, 1 2013 was an estimated 60 tons. It's early with the investigation in Beirut, but, you know, early estimates put the amount of ammonium nitrate stored there at around 3000 tons. So we're talking about a considerably more ammonium nitrate. And when we heard that first clip when you played it, I mean, you could hear that deep, concussive blast. It comes from, but it's it's It's like a detonation, and that's a real signature of these thieves. Types of explosions. It makes them wonder. I mean, what kind of federal rules exist to prevent these kinds of tragedies? You know, that's a good question. It's a patchwork of federal and state rules, including some that have been weakened in recent years. First, it's important to note that there's not a great You know, public estimate of how many of these facilities are around. The U. S Last survey done by the federal government is several years old, and it's estimated that there's 1300 of these facilities in 47 states. There's a couple layers of federal protection one through the AI. They require facilities that store this stuff to tell the government that they're storing it. Tell him how much is being stored and how it's being stored. That's supposed to be information that's available to first responders and firefighters in the area. But after the West Texas accident, Obama sent out this executive order and he really pushed his administration in the agencies to do more Teo to safeguard against these types of accidents. When President Trump's administration took over, they set about dismantling large parts of that rule. They took out some of the big elements, explaining that it was a burden to industry and the agricultural business industry pushed hard. Lobbied very hard to get those elements out of the rule. Well, it's interesting, just kind of the secretive nature of this. I mean, Ah, I also have a sense that you're kind of well acquainted with this. You're from Oklahoma. You lived in Oklahoma City for a long time. This same fertilizer was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, right? Yeah, That's right. It was used used in Timothy McVeigh's bomb. You know, 168 people died. I'm from Oklahoma City. It wasn't living in that city at the time, but you know, 90 miles away. I remember that day. Remember being pulled out of class during that day? Because you know we knew people that were, you know in the explosion. So since Del Carmen City bombing states have gotten really concerned about terrorism about domestic terrorism or criminals, getting their hands on On ammonium nitrate and so the public right to know laws or up against thes e safety concerns. What you get is really inconsistent quilt of regulations where, say in Texas this information is highly secretive state goes to right major lengths to prevent people from knowing it. If you can get that information online in other states like Nebraska and Iowa, even states like Oklahoma makes that information available. If you ask other states make it really hard or make the public go through these weird steps to get the information. What about here in California? I mean, this is a major agricultural hub. Were you able to learn anything about this issue in our state? Yeah, I requested info from California and we got a very confusing response. It wasn't clear They passed me off to other people. The information on paper is available to residents in California's They request it. It's not available in a handy Online way that many other states have it up. But I'm told the information is available if you requested it gets tricky, though, because you have to know the name and the address of the facility usually And then you have to find out where that information is stored. In most cases, that's a local fire department but usually have to call local fire departments say. Hey, I'm curious about you know this facility on The street. Can you tell me if there's anything dangerous being stored there, and in many cases, you may not know that stuff's being stored there. It's easier to think of like a like an oil refinery right or some big complex that Obviously looks like you know, it would be a problem is there was a disaster there, but the West, you know, Texas accident. This just happened in a random looking shed in the middle of a field. You would have no indication driving by this thing that it was storing. No. 60 tons of highly explosive chemical. We'll. Finally How does all this uneven regulation and lack of transparency put people at risk? You know, first responders and firefighters in West Texas and safety advocates have really you know, raised alarms about this after West Texas and then as some of the slightly tougher rules got weakened. In subsequent administrations, they say, you know, it's it's not clear that more could be done, Teo prevent these types of accidents and increase oversight and safety, You know, both from Public knowing what kind of risks air there from first responders and firefighters. That was something that came out the West Texas accident was firefighters that responded didn't really know the full extent of what was being stored there. So people are concerned about this and continue to raise red flags. Joe

"Our schools all throughout our country and people have to say, well, you have to atone for that well. First of all. If I had to atone for anything, I, definitely won't do it to you. Okay. So let's just be very clear I. got a God for that in a savior for that. So let's just be very clear. I don't know what construct you think I have to pay penance to, but I'm not kneeling to your man made. Idol or whatever just because you say I've done something wrong. So thank you very little for that. So. Secondly. Secondly. It is the opposite of the Christian ethic. It is opposite of everything that we believe in as Christians. Remember we are made new. Through the blood of Jesus Christ we are liberated from our sin. So, even if you are guilty of that accusation it sure as heck isn't another human beings business to try to tell you what you have to try to atone for secondly, what an unbelievable dangerous. Baseless accusation. To try to turn people against each other see Dennis Prager says there's the American Trinity E. Pluribus Unum Out of many one. It's on every presidential seal as the president speaks around the world. He has that presidential seal that Latin phrase pluribus. That is the American Northstar that means no matter, your skin color, no matter your background. We are one people. There's only one race, the human race, which by the way conveniently is considered to be hate speech in the University of California system and you're not allowed to say that saying that there's only one race, the human race I could you not real? So. Believing in in the second part of the American Trinity is in God we trust. That it's on all of our currency it's in the halls of Congress that God is greater than government, and then the rights that government is not supposed to take from you come from. God it's a locking idea of natural rights. The third idea is liberty but the one that's most applicable right now as e. pluribus unum, the American ideal, and understandably, it was not completely fulfilled from our founding. In fact, they laid this really ambitious goal in the preamble, the constitution that even the founders themselves were hypocrites in writing some of this. But that doesn't diminish the ideal. Trying to say, well, the people that wrote that didn't even live up to it. Of course, they didn't don't. Don't throw out the truth in the preamble the constitution because of the sins of the founders instead ask yourself did we ever get to a place where we achieve that? The teach you in history classes and your seventeen seventy seven one year after the declaration of Independence was signed Vermont Abolish Slavery Sovereign State Abolish Slavery. So as an inspiration from the founding of our country, states were already starting to rise up to abolish slavery. Rising up against an unspeakable evil and so eventually, we fought a civil conflict over it. There was years and decades of discussion but guess who are the people that were on the side of abolishing this evil? Where was the inspiration from this was from the Bible it was the churches. It was the Christians that said, this is not biblical. We're all made in the image of God. We're all one under his dominion and this idea of racial hierarchy is evil stop grouping people based on their immutable characteristics and that was the that was the. Inspiration for the civil rights. Act And for the idea of allowing people equal under the law equal rights, not equal outcomes. Completely different thing we could get to that in a second. However, we're now doing the opposite. We are now destroying Martin Luther, King's vision or he said I care about the content of your character, the color of your skin..

Ah, no, I need some more here need a little bit more more action on the North Ridge Couple forced to cancel their wedding due to the pandemic gets an unexpected gift from Domino's pizza. Both lost their jobs during the covert shutdown and experienced multiple deaths among family and friends. And that's when dominoes stepped in. Eyewitness news reporter Mark Quota Roadless has the story. Soon to be C. J and Danica Laci. Like many engaged couples had big plans in 2020 in January. February, we books basically, All of our vendors are on top of it. We've got everything we're set that save that for the wedding night, But all of our vendors were on top of it. We've got everything we're set. That was long before covert. 19 up ended everything. We will lost our jobs. So you know it was that what if a guy I'm sure this has happened? Where their weddings being planned. I got the flowers I got the the invites are out there everything set and then the pandemic hits, and I bet you anything the guy sits her down and goes. You know what I just think this sign. I just don't. I don't know, I think you know. I think we're lucky that this pandemic hit and maybe we should see. You know, we can't see each other. I during this pandemic? No, it's just not working out, Sam and I'm sure a guy a CZ used the pandemic to get out. I'm positive that happen certainly less of someone. Oh, yeah, absolutely horrible, sinking feeling of Oh, gosh. Is it going to be ableto happen Because of the pandemic? CJ and Danny have postponed their big day. Who is the girl C J or Danny? Could be Danny, right? CJ? I think because of the pandemic, CJ and Danny have postponed their big day. While it's a big disappointment. They recently received an even bigger surprise. Danny saw a sponsored Facebook ad that Domino's pizza was offering pizza theme to registries for couples who had postponed their ceremonies. Great 40 bucks a piece, though. That's pretty nice. You know, we're so CJ is the guy Danny saw? No, Danny is the guy, okay? He's very great. 40 bucks something, so that's pretty nice way like pizza doesn't like pizza. And so that was like, score free pizza. Wait a minute. What was I e mean? That's this whole story is over two pizzas. Yeah, $40 where the pizza is Maybe three. For although dominance could be 12 very great 40 bucks and things. So that's pretty nice way like pizza doesn't like pizza. And so that was like, score free pizza laughing it off. Not thinking much of it. It was weeks later when Danny got an email. Oh, I see he registered For the free pizza, and then they pick them as a couple to pay for everything. I think that's where we're going. Are you seeing what I'm seeing all of their registries for being paid for by dominos for 1000 dollarsworth and the boxes are still coming. We kind of just put stuff on it. As like. Oh, we wish we had $1000 couch on their way. Didn't expect anyone to buy us $1000 couch. Why'd you put on there Then? While 2020 has been unpredictable and stressful, you know? Can you see the registry like if somebody registers, Can you see everything on it? I think you can't write. Oh, yeah, I think so. Yeah. So somebody saw that they put $1000 couch on it. I don't like that. If I saw it. I was going to a wedding. A young couple, Their twenties like, 2122 23 they put down $1000 couch on the registry. E. I don't know. It doesn't sound right. Thiss Act of kindness has brought some light into their lives. They didn't have to do that. You know, they're a big company that could have just spent that money on marketing and they didn't ask us to talk to anybody. They didn't ask us to post on social media. They just did it. Now they're left to enjoy their gifts. And look forward to their new wedding date in October 2021. As far as we're concerned, we're like already married. We feel like we are so it's like it's just gonna be. It's all about having a party and celebrating. There you go. $1000 couch. S o. Domino's is smart. Because now you know they got all this free publicity Ryan, you know, instead of and Donald Donald Donald was really smart if Domino said, Hey, please post on your social media. People would see through that. Okay, It's a ploy to get more eyes be very careful not to make it look like that. And then if you don't make it look like that, If you know if they just want to naturally talk to the press or posted themselves, that's how you get great publicity. So somebody Domino's is really, really smart and doing that, all right? We'll take a short break for life on camera and 40 more

March, at the age of eighty nine trader Joe's of course, is the neighborhood grocery chain that transformed millions of people, shoppers, and employees alike into cult-like fans. The impact of his markets has been so significant that the Washington Post called Coloma cultural icon there's no trader Joe's near You well, let me. Step back for just a second and tell you the story. It was nineteen, sixty, seven Joe Coolum. Thirty seven had built a chain of eighteen convenience stores in California when gigantic seven eleven came along and he realized he couldn't compete according to the New York Times. The had to find something else to do one day. Kulam read that sixty percent of young people who were qualified to go to college. We're going thank you GI bill. He also read that Boeing was building a plane, the seven, thirty seven that would give more people the opportunity to travel overseas the assumed more international travel would make Americans pallets more adventurous New York Times reported. The idea for trader Joe's a store with fresh produce, sophisticated flavors and good wine affordable prices was born he opened the first one in Pasadena California that year famously Kulon conceived of Trader Joe's is a store for the quote over educated and underpaid his stores would serve budding foodies who wanted something more than they could get it typical supermarkets but who couldn't pay a fortune for it and something? More was what he built quirky stores with. South. Seas flair shelves stocked with Exotic Cheeses and gourmet foods from other countries and eventually natural foods and organic produce.

She's been doing it for almost thirty years and almost everyone I talk to head of Marian Story We loved her to death. She was like our our mothers who is very friendly. She made us feel at home and to make sure that we were taking care of. I guess you can say see Rectus us around her little pinky. I think she was doing that to me too when we were texting about where to meet up, she sent me a heart is Emoji and then at panerabread inside this strip mall near where she lives an hour or so east la she walked in slowly taking small steps that made her seem older than she is she spoke quietly and she didn't interrupt. I expecting this slick saleswoman, but instead, she was more of an Auntie. Is it a good job. It is. It's fun. You know I meet a lot of people in a lot of my clients are like family to me already, and if you don't mind me asking, does it pay well to? it's. For me. Yes. Because I have a lot of clients. You know, how many do you think you have? In so many years probably thousands already. Really. Yes. Wow. I didn't know then how much money Marian made, but it looks like she spent a lot. I know because I follow her son on. INSTAGRAM. He also works at Silver Saddle, and I know that sounds weird. But whatever I'm a reporter. Marian Son has posted pictures of her in front of the Glass Pyramid at the Louvre, a cobblestone street in Lisbon and posing with lumberjacks and sled dogs on an eight-day Alaskan cruise. But my favorite post of his Marian is standing in the middle of the road outside what I'm pretty sure is her million dollar house in Corona, cupping her hand. So it looks like she's holding up the end of a rainbow. So, back, it's over Seattle. Marianne tells Ben and his friends that it's time for the next part of the tour.

Don't really remember how far it was. It wasn't too far, but I remember the houses they weren't built next to each other. There's a lot of space in between them, but they're still in the same like. Like neighborhood I've been there too. There's maybe twenty houses on hundreds of empty lots. Some. Of them were boarded up. Some had barbed wire holding the gates shot. One had a deflated football in the driveway. But, some had tomatoes growing out front and freshly watered flowers. Ben Said on his tour. They stopped in front of this one big house, and Marian told everyone it was her house. There were all kinds of impressed. They walked inside the a AC was blasting and the carpets were freshly vacuumed Ben and his friends flopped on the beds in took goofy pictures of themselves. Rena peaked inside the bathroom. They brought us up and they said like, Oh, well here in California city. Edo You can take a Hollywood shower. Shower, and it's what they call.

Legend has it that the founder of California City loved going up here and looking out at his creation? And it really is a great view. You can see for miles far across the empty. Desert Plain. You can see the sunset over the southern Sierra Nevada to the west and the distant glow from Los Angeles. But mostly what you notice is the spider web of roads. It's what James and I. Noticed our first time up there. Just. Massive amount of land that's out here. And the roads just. There's so many roads on every single direction, they're all leading to nothing. Everyone I talked to told me a similar version of what happens up here on Galileo. Hill. Your sales agent tells you, there's a future here, just close your eyes and you can see it. You can be a part of it. Almost every city in California started out empty like this palm springs the San Fernando Valley Irvine.

"Let me ask you the question. Your group poses to me that were you and your neighbors family and friends able to pay ran on April first or speak to the building of now. We're all organized here in checked in with everybody and everyone was able to pay rent this month only because our landlord is a small mom and pop owner. They keep rents about fifteen hundred below market. Rate you're an echo park and so we're able to a afford these rents have a two bedroom and I'm I'm paying fifteen hundred below market rate. But I don't know what this means for next month. I don't know if I'll have a job. So this is where the choice between food and medicine and supplies versus rent comes into and that's affected tens of thousands of tenants across Los Angeles. Already with this. What are they telling you about their situation right now? Well they've lost their when mayor. Garcetti and governor newsom sheets. Dan home orders on March nineteenth. A lot of places closed in fact. I was getting a haircut at the time. And the place closed right as they were issuing the orders Those Barbara's went home and they have not been working since and so the tenants union launched a campaign called food not rent or we the the. No it's a guide that helps tenants. Kinda worked through some of these issues and protect themselves because after may thirty first landlords will be able to file a victim even if they've lost work to corona virus or they've gotten sick from the corona virus. Yeah so tell us a story about maybe a family that reflects their struggle to be able to pay the rent right now in this time of Corona virus. There's one tenant that I'm very worried about his wife and kids and he was working in a restaurant in downtown and after the restaurant closed down he you know he was essentially living. Check the check as a bus boy and he also doesn't have papers so he's he's terrified so he's been you know asking neighbors tour and France for short loans to be able to pay the rent and I've asked that he really needs to think about this because he these paying the rent and he's not able to put food on the table without working. You know what is he going to do? This case is special because he doesn't have papers so there's an added level of of Tara for him but there's other stories just like his as well. There are so many in the last God in the last three or four day. We've got hundreds of emails from people who work in the economy from people who were selling food out in those street vendors. We've gotten contacted from You know from all walks of life in Los Angeles enabled to pay for rent because of the stay at home orders and it's unfair that tenets are forced to stay home unable to work and unable to pay rent and still be able to be a victim by their landlord. Tenants are coming together. There are some that are helping each other out with delivering food to their neighbors who are elderly so these are just. Some of the intense situations and tenants are facing. So what are the right of tenants of especially right now to stay where they are? Despite not being able to pay rent basically the stay at home owners issued protects tenants Until may thirty first there are no lockouts. Alonzo cannot file individually against you you do. You won't get overcharged for any late fees or having extra people in your apartment but you do need to let your landlord. Oh in written that the chronic virus has affected you so that you can later use that if you're landlords is is to take you to court in June as a defense and that's where you begin to provide proof you lost your job. You'll have to present that to the court for now. It's just a temporary. Stay on injections so California. Governor Gavin newsom ordered that statewide ban on fictions caused by corona virus and Merrick are here in Los Angeles announce that landlords can increase rent on over the half million apartments under the cities rent stabilization programs. So what are your thoughts on their on their measures. You know the the measures don't go far enough in the crisis we are in now. These orders that they issue would have been great ten years ago or five years ago to address the housing affordability prices and that has resulted in sixty thousand homeless in in Los Angeles alone. And so now. We're in a new crisis now with Kobe. Nineteen so the governor us more responsible in this. He has more powers as the governor to issue a blanket moratorium on all victims no matter what our city local city council members took a vote last week and we came one. Vote Short from a blanket. Moratorium on all fictions I blame council members like You know Mitchell Farrell and Council president nor Martinez. With that. Why do you think there were opposed to that? Well it's interesting. They were more concerned with landlords and they were more concerned. That tenants would take advantage of the situation. By now paying rent and having a not being able to be affected by their landlords so landlords they would argue You know your your group is asking. For forgiveness of rendering corona virus and those landlords would most likely say that rent forgiveness would bankrupt them with put them out of business. What would be your response to them? You know I feel a lot for the mom and pop. But on Lord's own one building two buildings and a pretty fair to their tenants you know. I have no sympathy for corporate developers in corporate boards. Who are buying up all these buildings and victim of their tenants but it's much easier for a landlord to find some kind of forgiveness with the bank. You know we have already seen governor newsom issue of you know a wave mortgage payments for six months and in the case of Bank of America. Only three months you know. They're they're a much better position have equity in their home. But I I you know I still feel for the small mom and pops they should be also part of this Rent forgiveness that interesting actually. Good Union of two. Would you would think it's two completely different sides. I I know the L A tenants union has waged rent strikes in the past but I think a lot of folks can't even comprehend of that idea so talk a little bit about a wet. What a red strike is and whether they can be successful rent strikes have been successful for the tenants. Union before the cove in nineteen crisis rent strikes were used as a way for collective bargaining. They're technically not illegal. If a judge rules in favor of the tenant I wow yes so so. I organized a rent strike at Burlington building. Which is about two hundred families have a neighborhood. It was here in West Lane and also the mud gotcha in In Boyle Heights as well So some of those cases went to court but the conditions of the building were so terrible that the judge ruled in favor of the tenants with the Reno reduced rents and made their rent strike legal. In the case of Burlington we went nine cases to court. Six of them we wan rent strike at three of them. We lost but it's still risky so eventually the landlord dropped all those cases. There were like eighty nine hundred cases that dislike dropped and they got to keep six months of rent during that Red Stripe and this case we have something completely different. It's more organic rent. Strike out of necessity again are not paying rent. Not because they don't want to because they have stayed homeowners the business closed. There is a complete shutdown so this is more of an organic thing that's happening and I think this will only get worse next month. Those who were living check to check in April and you know are not gonNa make it this month. They won't be able to pay and those who have a little bit. That are a little more well to do their jobs and may will be able to pay Dan. So this is only going to increase as time goes on. I don't know that this stay at home. Order will be done in a postseason. You may so. I don't know how much longer this will go on so for a group like yours. You see an opportunity to be able to help tenants if they do. WanNa do a rent strike. Yes it this is. This is the moment where this crisis has exposed. How unfair and the lack of protections tenants have this is not a question. This is a political question. And and it's it's a moment that tenants have to ask themselves. I lost my job. I can't pay my rent in my entitled to my whole and those tenants who are targeted by corporate developers for evictions are the ones that felt that the most usually those communities that are being gentrified but now everyone is feeling it so this is an important moment and I think we cannot miss this moment. Yeah I was GonNa ask you about gentrification obviously housing rates through the roof over the past decade or so a lot of gentrification in downtown in the east side the really side of La at least. How do you see this corona virus crisis affecting all of those different housing movements? While I think it's just going to supercharge them like I said we've had Hundreds at least in our local alone. We've had hundreds of emails tenants who cannot pay their rent and we're talking a lot of people that work in the GIG economy. I mean just a whole range from working class poor to lower middle class and so this is just you know it's just really supercharge. The organizing and people are waking up. Like wait a minute. You know the situation here in L. A. is terrible with rents and with the lack of protections for tenants and affordability. You know things have to change. And it's just things cannot continue the way they are and the governor and the Mayor Local Government and state government are only providing solutions. That would have worked for the previous crisis of affordability. We need something stronger now. And that's not going to happen without tenants coming together so right now in your apartment complex. A lot of you're staying at home. What's the mood like like? How do you folks interact with each other at all in at your apartment? Well there's only four units in my building so we do keep a distance from each other We do sometimes leave notes on each other's doors or slip them under the door. We want to communicate We HAVE SET UP. Watts threads in other buildings. There are twelve twenty units and that were. They're all able to communicate with each other. So the that's the method of communication between your neighbors is very very important. So you said earlier tents especially in southern California they could vary wildly from a retiree on the West side to documented folks to even hipsters. Do you see this corona virus crisis uniting these disparate groups under the banner of not being able to pay rent. Yes absolutely this is again. This is a unique opportunity to really build a movement. That is just not citywide but it state-wide it was already happening before the groundwork has already been laid out and and and this is the moment to really just catcher all that that angst and all that worry and really put hard questions to people. The old system work. How easy is it for you to lose your home if there is no human right to housing? And it's a privilege for you to have your home than that privilege so. This is an important moment that I think is an inflection point for anyone who rents in the city of L. A. And it brings everybody together rich or poor black or brown. I mean this is how we have to see the landscape. Thank you so much for this interview. Absolutely ridiculous though. Thanks for listening to listen to the rest of grown virus in California stories from the front lines subscribed today on Apple podcast Badeah Fi. Or wherever you get your podcasts. See you there and stay safe..

This one is a cutting top to bottom and this is a front to back view and so what we can see this focal area of uptake right here which is corresponds to the back of the fetlock joints. So I'm in the Palmar region of the fetlock. Now how does that compare with. How good a pet scan scan looks so a bone scan is going to be different? This is an example of of this horse's bone scan. And so what we can see is Uptake in the back of the CONDOS here But you can see that. The pet scan is a much more pinpoint specific location because We can do it in three dimensions. So if you're an owner or trainer who doesn't have a grant and you need to get a pet scan done. How much would it cost? It's cost about Eight hundred dollars to the pet. Scans so how does that compare to nuclear integrity aradio. Yeah so nuclear tigger be of a front end is going to probably run you at set the southern California Foundation right around eleven hundred dollars and a set of radiographs for a fetlock will probably cost you about three hundred dollars. The pet scan was brought to Santa Anita in mid December and We've done probably over thirty pet scans Since then and so as we like I said refine our who are case selection knowing the strengths and weaknesses. What horses Fed I think you'll see that number. Just continue to grow and grow.

"Two million illegal immigrants in California. The federal government won't stop them. The border yet requires us to pay billions to take care of them. Talk a little bit about Who who thought of the idea for that Ad? Well I think the idea was pretty obvious. Yes and I had a challenge of sorts. Not much of one in the primary and that was an issue then and my opponent the primary was on the other side runs. Ron didn't make much of an impression but you know timeout. UN's was against one eighty-seven and has spent a year since trolling Wilson on his website. The UN's review back to tape so anyway that was why we did it and to draw attention to the differences and what has happened. And you're you just pointed me in one respect. Okay that is you. I think probably because you were in high school then and later as a reporter went to the files and saw the same thing that I have read time and again about the grainy Phil well they keep coming was simply a statement of fact It was not pejorative but it was a statement of fact and the Grainy of film was I n s film taken with a night vision. Camera to graining. Yeah so you don't think that was racist no adult it was a statement of fact. What's interesting to me about that? Is I talked in my podcast talked to Barbara. I'm Bob Kiley. The consultants behind one eighty-seven and they said they thought it was racists that when they saw it there ause drop. I don't think it did our group any good or are 'cause yeah because now all of a sudden it's tied specifically civically to this idea of an invasion right. No racist a racist boy. It was racist than they said is probably going to help. Pete Wilson's campaign but it's not gonNA help Arkansas's now all of a sudden race has been injected into a conversation that was supposed to be about numbers legal versus illegal. So what would be your response to that. My response is if they were consultants consultants during their fees. Because in fact what I intended to do was to make it clear that this was a real problem and a problem of growing magnitude hundred fact at some point during the campaign probably several points. I said Ed if this does not succeed if we do not get the feds attention and peak them into some kind of responsible action Action then what is now. A problem for the border states will be one for all the states it will spill over I into the south health and then into the mid West. Yeah can you see why people think that adds racist though will take someone like myself or a lot of people whose parents did come to this this country illegally and then they see footage with the voice they keep coming almost as it's a bad thing so in the minds of some people that are like that they is us. So can you at least see why people think it's racist. You don't have to agree with that statement but yeah well I don't ever obviously and what I think that people. Oh who were here. Who are offended by that might think did not alter the facts and the fact word that there were also in California in a great many naturalized Latinos who were doing just fine who were building businesses? I mean the small all business owners and people who went into the professions. We're the ones who had been natural. The ones who were still living in shadows shadows were not they were not citizens and they were not going to be. Life was probably better for them here than in Mexico. Many any of them were sending money home. I mean foreign-exchange coming back into Mexico. was a major source of foreign exchange. And I thought frankly the Mexican in government was totally hypocritical. Because here they were creating situations and they've had resources I mean. They had a lot of resources. I was not looking to them for help. I mean I had very good relations with the border governors in particular with the governor of Bah. Aw Yeah at one point even thought that he might be in some physical peril he and his family and I called him and I said listen if that it is the case call me and we will engage in a rescue so if people were offended. That wasn't the purpose What what was the purpose was to get them to realize that there was indeed a problem and that it was gonna get quickly worse and worse? I this is the question. I've asked everyone that I've interviewed for this. Do you think at the end of everything here. We are twenty five years later proposition. One eighty-seven one yet one eighty-seven not only one but won by Orlando. Of course I'm talking about the bigger metaphorical picture. Did one eighty seven win. Well if you mean did it achieve its purpose no because because it was not thrown out by the courts now declared unconstitutional than Gray Davis decided not to appeal or reach into an agreement with plaintiffs. And said we're we're just not going to peel the NFL. Zor was the District Court judge and she after about a year. I mean we knew it would be suit would be filed all the next day after the election. Yeah that was not. That was not a surprise. It was an expectation. I said get busy because because it's going to be a court battle the thing that really enrage me though it was she allowed it to languish in her on her desk for three a year. Yeah when that happened. I anticipated that they would have been perfectly happy in her court and elsewhere to let it languish right past the end of my service anticipating that we had an offer from the Pacific Legal Foundation to take over the role of representing the majority of voters. who had voted for one eighty-seven so we petitioned and the ninth circuit for permission for them to be substituted for me? They denied that with one of the more fatuous opinions uh-huh ever rendered and one that I thought was in palpable bad faith. They said we think. Governor Wilson is entirely competent to represent. The people and I said so do I but I'm not going to be here in a year. You think those were all delays on purpose by her and even the ninth district. Yes I do. Why do you think they were delaying? Because they were politically opposed. But they're supposed to be impartial judges they are supposed to be so okay. So one eighty eighty seven obviously passes then get str- well however you want to describe it obviously objectively it dies in the courts because Gray Davis decides. It's not to appeal the case. Now we have California where now. Wait a minute okay. He didn't that was not what he decided through his campaign for governor he said I deplore it but I will abide by the expressed will of the voters until he didn't he had a change of heart. Yeah and the change of of heart resulted in what I thought to be a sham mediation. Maybe it wasn't on his part. Maybe it was heartfelt. But in any any case there was what purported to be a mediation I thought it a sham because frankly the attitude of people people on both sides was the same the respondents and the appellants. Yeah but the ninth circuit sanctioned. So how how would you characterize. Victor is then one eighty-seven the official lawsuit. Seven had gone all the way up. I think that it would have been overturned in by the Supreme Court. I was quite confident of that because it was a different court. Yeah so what did. Grave is due to one eighty-seven then how would you describe the eventual angel fate of one eighty-seven the eventual fate of one eighty. Seven is that the people were cheated of their day in court. Okay so one eighty-seven day cheated in court. Now you see California. Twenty twenty five years later and what has happened in. The interval was sampled in the campaign. In the last two months of the ninety four election in which there was the damnedest barrage of press coverage that I have ever seen in all of it. Negative against you and one eighty seven. Yeah Yeah of course up next the rest of my conversation with former California Governor Pete Wilson. That's after.

"You ever notice that the standard school they in America is about two hours shorter than the standard entered workday that creates a lot of work for parents a lot of stress. There's an entire industry out there designed to deal with the work and stress us of this two hour gap now. Some argue that changing school schedules to align better with work. Schedules would be better for parents and Dan Students and today California senator. Kamala Harris is introducing a bill. That would do just that. A lot of the details are forthcoming but the big idea is to make kids stay at school a little longer and that doesn't necessarily mean teachers have to teach more but maybe the school provides free childcare. child-care after classes are over Senator Harris is not the only one thinking big about school schedules back in her home state. They've already made a big change but to understand the change you have to understand zero period. I had no idea what zero period was when I moved to California from Kano. Ah when I was a teenager but it immediately became an essential part of my life. Zero period is actually where I made my first friend and the United States. ZAC Saker. You're going to hear me again. Hey I I wanted to ask you a couple of questions about high school. Got A second go. I don't know if you remember how we met a do your junior year junior year of of high school. I remember I just moved to California. I didn't have any friends yet and you sat. I'm going to say in front of me in Mr Stor. Rob's zero period Algebra two math class is that right. Yeah I remember. You had a blink. One eight two. Who Sticker on your folder? Something I like blink way to grow. Can you WANNA I WANNA be friends. And that's how it started. Do you remember what time that class started. Seven am seven am where brands to be literally federally. Do you remember why we elected to take a math class at seven in the morning. I just remember I was trying to get out of school at noon. I think that was the only way to do that. Did you hear that future Zack's Shawn's might not get to meet at school at seven in the morning anymore. I did not California just passed the first just law that mandates later school start time for middle and high school students. Katrina Schwarz covers education for K.. Q. E. D. in San Francisco. It's the first of a kind law. Although some school districts and other parts of the country have done something similar but this is the first statewide law and it would go into effect in three years. So district's basically have three the years to figure out how they're going to do. This is California just coming around to the idea that asking kids to wake up at five. Six o'clock kind of extra. Yeah I mean the the reason they pass this law is that there's a lot of research showing that especially teenagers they're circadian rhythms are a little bit different as you go through adolescence. And so really they need to be sleeping sleeping in a little bit later in order to be fully awake and so this argument is all about achievement and sort of wellbeing for young people that you know being at school at seven. Thirty in the morning is really not optimal for this age group but on the other side are all educators and school administrators. Who are saying you know? This is going to be a huge shift for us us. It takes a lot of logistics to change the school schedule and it's going to affect a lot of people so can we talk about the law explicitly. What exactly does it dictate? Yes so the law says that middle schools have to start at eight. AM or later and high schools. Have to start at eight thirty or later you can still have zero periods by the way so you could still be going to school at seven thirty in the morning. But that's mostly for like electives and things. Yeah and then. There are a few exemptions four rural schools obviously those schools that have the biggest issues with transportation so they are exempt although this does affect charter schools who you know in many other areas as of education law have a little bit more leeway but in this bill they are affected by this as well and people push back saying this was. I don't know nanny state cool nanny state state who lets you sleep late Yeah there was pushed back a lot of districts pushback and like I said teachers the School Board Association the School who administrators premature any adult who is in charge of running schools. Push back against this and of course there were some parents too. I mean I think parents are kind of split on this but I should just tell you that the California California State Parent Teacher Association wasn't favor of this bill. They backed it so parents are probably all over the place on this depending on their individual circumstances. But it'll really depend. And how districts do this like do they get buy in from the parent community. Do they tell them about the science. Do they tell them why they're doing this. And why it's important and kind of get people on board before where they just like. Make a sweeping change that affects the mornings of you know hundreds of thousands of families and not just people with kids but people driving to work at the same time as people with kids in school buses is having more kids. Start at the exact same time. Potentially we're going to create more traffic effect municipalities and other ways. I think a huge issue was just the amount of administrative effort. It will take to reschedule. Schedule all the buses because already buses are staggered. Like one bus might be used for a school that has an earlier start time and then pick up a whole other set of kids for a different school and those are like carefully monitored. They're trying to maximize the use of each bus and each bus driver. So definitely some districts were saying. This could cost US millions of dollars to one one figure out how to Redo the schedule. You know all the administrative time and thinking about it and then potentially having to use more buses hire more bus drivers evers that could all take time and then the other big thing was just this idea that one size does not fit all like what works for. One district doesn't work for others and people just really feeling feeling like we value local control in education. That's like a core part of education in the United States. That's why we have such different laws in each state and it's true of local districts as well they implement laws differently every community looks different between how diverse California is as a state and all the conflicting needs needs of parents and all the scheduling. It sounds like there could actually be a lot on the line here for California whenever you're the first in the country to do something people are watching watching you and you know California's a big state and often especially with education policy other people follow suit although it gets trip like many kinds of policy in California so so you know. Other states and districts are aware of the research around this has been like in the conversation for a while the effect of lack of sleep on teens. I mean especially because we're seeing seeing some high rates of anxiety and sleeplessness. What chief rates and stuff like that people are saying okay? We need to really pay attention to the mental health of our adolescents. And not just have have. These schedules dictated by the adults in the system. We should be really prioritizing. The young people themselves so other people are interested in this may be studying. It are considering bills of their their own and they're watching California to find out if it works here so I think how it's implemented and whether we do a good job with that that'll determine a lot for the rest of the country.

"Steve. Ventura County fire department, and I'm the public information officer for. It's team for. And how has the federal government responded to the campfire and to what's happening right now in California with the most current numbers? The federal government has responded as it always has for emergencies of this sort of signed to the fire right now thirty to twenty three the personnel and the coordination and the promise of funding has been there. There's more than seven thousand firefighters out on the fire lines still. But many of those assumptions were sort of upended on Saturday. President Trump is responding to the fires burning in California right now. When President Trump tweeted that there's no reason for these massive deadly and costly forest. Fires in California. There were mismanagement issues of the forests in play in California. Billions of dollars are giving each year with so many lives lost all because of gross mismanagement of the forest remedy now or no more fed payments, and that really hit a raw nerve for people who were still reeling from it that statement was idiot pick it was ill-timed, and it's in fearing that the federal response or the future response was somehow in doubt. It's a gross exaggeration to say Trump's declare war on California, governor elect Gavin Newsom immediately in vehemently denounced, the president's tweed. He said that this is not a time for partisanship. So clearly interpreted the president's statement as a politically driven rather than land management or environmental policy statement and presumably politically driven at a democratically dominated state that is certainly how you would read Gavin's statement. And President Trump is suggesting that these fires are the fault of mismanagement. By the state of California. Is that people think he's saying that appears to be the suggestion that the state of California was somehow at fault in managing those lands. But the fact is that the vast majority of forest lands in California like most of the west are federal the community of paradise itself. Really backs up to a national forest, and those are not state policies at all the US force service defines and manages those lands for better or worse. And there are definitely people who believe federal forest management has not been exactly what it should be. Well, and also how much of this is far as we understand. It does have to do with forest management versus say climate change. That's a hard mix to try and parse out, sir. Certainly there are many areas in the west and in California where decades of fire suppression. When a fire starts in a forest try and put it out that's been the eagles in the mantra since the smoky days, and there's also a lot less logging in those areas that people have said reduces who the fuel load that can burn a fire. So it may be that it kind of comes from both sides, if there's less healthy at a time when the environment around it is also changing and drying, and whatever it gets hit from both sides, so fire suppression combined with less logging may leave these forests primed for fires and climate change may do the rest in that sense. The president has a point about the need to manage these forests. But in fact. It sounds like you're saying Kirk that that's really the job of his own federal government more than the state of California that he's just threatened to withhold funds from well. I if it comes back down to who owns the land then. Yeah, you can only hold the state of California responsible for what is responsible for and like most western states. The federal government is a giant presence on the land. Whether it's in for service, or bureau of land management were fishing wildlife. It's a huge cumulative force that either does its job well or..

"Williams was Smith student at the university of southern California, and after he graduated, they started their own practice together. And this is the office building that they built for themselves and for their practice. They were extremely prolific. They designed everything from commercial structures to educational buildings, two houses, but because their practice was mainly located here in south Pasadena Pasadena, and because they weren't huge self promoters. The way people like Richard Notre was their legacy has been slightly lost to history. The building it was developed as a series of interlocking volumes that sort of shift pass each other both horizontally in vertically. So you'll see there some volumes that touch the ground. Some that are lifted above that sort of shift to the side. So they're almost floating in mid air and then covering the entire. Tire courtyard area and all of the volumes together are this massive, but extremely lightweight, vaulted steel mesh roofing system and extends out over into the parking lot sort almost hovers over all of the different volumes. So the steel mesh roofing system serves to join everything together while also remaining lightweight and separate. And then underneath it are this open trust system. So it's really this exposure of the system of the building itself. You can see the exposed steel beams that create kind of a regulated pattern on the front of the building, and then it's filled in with these huge expanses of glass. And then of course, the highlight of the building is the courtyard that we're in right now, which is this fantastic oasis off of fair, explosive, art, which is a large four lane pass through the center of Pasadena and south Pasadena, and it has fronted by a parking lot. You go through the parking lot and then you step into the center of all these office spaces. And it's just quiet and it's this kind of lush Mediterranean wastes that was designed by the way by Garrett echo who was one of the most important mid-century landscape architects. One of the things that echo did he designed the maple trees, the vertical elements of the gardening to reflect the vertical elements of the steel beams in the building. So the columns can see the vertical of the columnists mimicked in the maple trees themselves. As you can see here in this building, they allowed the materials themselves, the kind of kit of parts that you could buy out of a sweets catalog, for example, and just allowing those materials themselves to be the ornamental, the decorative expression in the building, the mesh vaulted roof structure at the top which allows light to come in and kind of modulate it into the courtyard. I think they're industrial materials there everyday materials, but they recompose them in a way that's quite. Beautiful and elegant. These costs a lot of money like these early, highly desirable homes LA today among certain group of people are very passionate about it. Who were these buildings designed for though? Was it kind of like a rising elite or a kind of luxury class, or was it? Was it something different? I think a lot of the houses were built for mostly white collar, middle income people who were interested in a new way of living and willing to be open to kind of experiment. Some of them had to be more open than others depending on the architect there are working with and how rigid that architect was about how closely here she wanted the space to be designed. I think there are also very much in tune with a kind of opening up of lifestyle that was happening in the postwar period particularly in Los Angeles. So there's a couple things connected with that one. The the integration of indoor and outdoor space. So kind of fluidity of plan. The opening up of plan from a more conservative model to one where there's more flexibility of space, which of course is you know geared in part towards the housewife to the homemaker who can sit at her kitchen window and watch the children play in the living room, right? She's not cut off by wall anymore. And so there's a kind of casualness that to having a company over into entertaining people and not having your kitchen completely separated from that kind of entertainment space. And then of course how the outside and the inside come together, so an architect might design it so that Awal continues from the inside to the outside or the groundwork, whatever the flooring is might continue from inside outside. So the I kind of carries in between the two spaces..
