Desmond Meade's life story has been one of pain, perseverance, and finally, triumph. From a drug addicted felon waiting for a train to jump in front of to heading up the groundbreaking Florida Rights Restoration Coalition which has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year for:"their work in building democracies, supporting the human right to representation by government, and working towards a better organized and peaceful world."Desmond, like FRRC is a force to be reckoned with. The nonprofit's greatest success was the overwhelming passage of Amendment 4, the initiative that represented the nation's largest expansion of voting rights since the civil rights era. More than 1.4 million Floridians who had served time regained the right to vote. After the amendment's impact was tempered by “implementation legislation” pushed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Republican lawmakers — requiring individuals to first pay off any fines and fees connected to their convictions — Meade, who has been the head of the org for nearly a decade, and the coalition were able to raise millions of dollars to assist 40,000 “returning citizens” in settling those debts. Take that, RON.We are thrilled to welcome Desmond to the show as he sits down with Adam for a robust, informative and moving conversation you do not want to miss.

This episode features Serge Dedina, the executive director and co-founder of WILDCOAST, an international conservation team. Not only did Serge serve as the mayor of Imperial Beach from 2014 to 2022, but he also chaired the SANDAG borders committee for six years, demonstrating his commitment to cross-border collaboration. With a focus on transboundary planning and conservation, Serge has been a key player in addressing the cross-border sewage pollution crisis in the San Diego-Tijuana region. In the conversation, Serge shares insights into the crucial role of cross-border collaboration in addressing sea-level change and the importance of getting involved and making a difference at the local level. Timestamps: [2:01] WILDCOAST is an international conservation team that conserves coastal and marine ecosystems and addresses natural climate change through natural solutions. [2:10] Serge's journey of co-founding WILDCOAST and his history of serving as the Mayor of Imperial Beach from 2014 to 2022. [2:47] What does Serge hope to achieve in the role as Chair for C-3's Knowledge Action Network, and what hopes does he have for future civic awareness of our border region? [6:20] The border region can serve as a laboratory to get things done because there are no rules and we can take action and make up the rules to serve our community best as we go. [6:20] Serge discusses shifting the conversation away from thought partners to action partners and the punk rock DIY philosophy that helped him transform the city of Imperial Beach. [9:19] Serge talks about serving on the board of SANDAG and how cross-border collaboration has evolved on a government level. [11:22] By working with the media to communicate issues, problems, challenges, and needs, Serge has caught the attention of CNN and many other national and international media organizations. [13:43] How can we do better in solving the Tijuana sewage crisis and improving our water quality? [14:15] What would solving this issue mean for our South Bay communities and our neighbors in Tijuana? [19:31] The impact of our sea levels rising and holding the fossil fuel companies accountable. [29:05] The importance of taking positive actions at the micro level. [29:39] Instead of just tweeting and talking about things on social media, get off your device and get involved. Get active. About C-3 Even before the California Coastal Commission or Environmental Protection Agency existed, Citizens Coordinate for Century 3 (C-3) was the environmental conscience of San Diego. Since that time, in part due to C-3's leadership in education, advocacy, and empowerment, a plethora of organizations have developed throughout San Diego County. These organizations specifically focus on promoting progressive values in architecture, urban design, land-use governance, natural resource management, sustainable economic development, climate change resilience, and social justice. As the field of allies has grown, C-3's role has evolved to provide a platform that promotes creating civic community. Opportunities for Advocacy and Engagement: C3sandiego.org WILDCOAST Serge Dedina
This week, world leaders, diplomats, climate activists, journalists, and fossil fuel executives will meet in Dubai for the United Nations' annual Climate Change Conference. While many discussions will build on last year's COP, where nations agreed to fund loss and damage from climate change, another focus will be on who is sidelined from the discussions. The United Arab Emirates has reportedly hired an army of public relations experts to help manage its reputation during the two-week event and to keep international attention away from its crackdown on civic space. Meanwhile, some of the world's largest democracies, including governments that have traditionally championed human rights, lack a clear vision for protecting civic space in the climate talks, even though Indigenous communities, social justice movements, and human rights defenders are at the forefront of fighting climate change.Joining the show to discuss the role of civil society at COP 28 is Kirk Herbertson. Kirk is a Senior Policy Advisor at EarthRights International, a nonprofit organization that “combines the power of law with the power of people in defense of human rights and the environment.” Show Notes: Kirk Herbertson (@KirkHerbertson) Paras Shah (@pshah518) Kirk's Just Security article “To Avert Climate Crisis, Democracies Need to Protect Civic Space”Just Security's climate change coverageJust Security's civil society coverageMusic: “The Parade” by “Hey Pluto!” from Uppbeat: https://uppbeat.io/t/hey-pluto/the-parade (License code: 36B6ODD7Y6ODZ3BX)Music: “The World Between Us” by Corey Alstad from Uppbeat: https://uppbeat.io/t/cory-alstad/the-wound-between-us (License code: DBNNNNMVJSCUU65C)

Your Water Bill is Going up in 2024The city of Akron has announced a restructuring of its water rates in 2024, increasing from $2.73 to $3.06 per HCF (hundred cubic feet). Residential customers will also incur a fixed infrastructure charge of $9, leading to an overall monthly utility bill increase of $10-$12 for most Akron residents. The changes aim to fund necessary projects for Akron's aging drinking water infrastructure, addressing repairs and replacements of essential components over 100 years old. The revenue generated, estimated at $15 million, will support projects like Brittain Road Reservoir replacement, water main replacements, lead service line replacement, and updates to the Filter Building Treatment Facility. The city is also launching a water affordability program, offering eligible residents a 40 percent discount on the water portion of their bill, with applications opening on Jan. 1, 2024. The sewer rates will remain unchanged in 2024.Spooky ChristmasIt's already been a historic year for Akron's venerable Haunted Schoolhouse.And for the first time in 50 years, the haunt will open its doors for a unique Christmas-themed tour.The old Thomastown Elementary School on Akron's Triplett Boulevard plans to roll out the tinsel along with a dead body or two or three for two nights on Dec. 8 and 9."The elves have decked out all three floors of the Haunted Schoolhouse with lights, trees and holiday cheer galore, but the monsters and ghosts that roam these halls are not quite as jolly," the haunt posted on social media.Scrooge LiveScrooge The Musical, presented by The BOOM Theater, returns to The Knight Stage for 9 shows from December 1-17!

This week, Megan and Michael discuss the place of "civic religion" in Australian society.Defined as the implicit "religious" values of a nation - expressed through public ceremony, symbols, and rituals - our hosts ask if Australia even has a civic religion in the first place.They then turn their eyes to the place of the Welcome to / Acknowledgement of Country in Australia: specifically in the church. What does it mean that some churches have pushed back against this now largely normal part of public procedure?Finally, they take stock of a recent episode of Bluey and discuss why a children's show (of all things) brought Michael to tears.

Honda's Civic Type R was a forbidden fruit among Honda fans and collectors until it was formally added to the U.S. Honda lineup with the introduction of the 2017 Civic Type R. This 10th-generation Civic was a watershed moment for fans, but some didn't appreciate some styling decisions. Well, with the 11th-generation Civic, Honda brought back the Type R with the major styling change that came with the next-generation car. The latest Civic Type R carries over a lot of the major hardware from the previous car. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 that sends 315 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed manual transmission. This '23 Civic Type R also shares the interior updates that came with a new generation but adds red bucket seats for the driver and front passenger. On this episode of Quick Spin, host Wesley Wren puts the '23 Civic Type R through its paces. Wren takes you on a guided tour of the Civic Type R and highlights some of his favorite features on a guided tour. Wren also takes you along for a live drive review. Adding to the conversation, Wren chats with Autoweek's Emmet White about the new Civic Type R, the experience of driving it, and how it stacks up against its Acura Integra Type S counterpart. Closing the show, the pair break down what makes this Civic special.
Civic groups stage a rally in protest against Japan's release of radioactive water from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant into ocean, in Seoul, South Korea, on Thursday.Civic groups and experts called for an immediate halt to the discharge of contaminated water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocean and the establishment of an international monitoring mechanism that will be effective over the long term.Japan started the third round of nuclear-contaminated water discharge from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant on Thursday, despite numerous objections at home and abroad.Approximately 7,800 metric tons of nuclear-contaminated water will be released into the sea during this round of discharge.Dozens of Japanese citizens from multiple civic groups attended a rally in Tokyo on Wednesday, demanding that Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, the operator of the crippled Fukushima plant, immediately halt the ocean discharge.Yuya Kamoshita, a Fukushima resident who was forced to evacuate to Tokyo, said he believes that simply monitoring the situation is not enough and that the release of contaminated water should be stopped."I don't want to eat contaminated fish or vegetables. Even mushrooms and wild foods harvested in Fukushima are still contaminated and cannot be shipped," said Kamoshita, head of a group of plaintiffs seeking damages from TEPCO and the Japanese government."I think Japanese and Chinese people share the same concern about not wanting to consume food that has been contaminated by radiation. It's natural for Chinese people to be concerned about Japanese seafood because if the radioactive water goes into the sea, the contamination spreads.""We're all saying, 'Stop it, stop it', but I think the voices of those who are saying 'stop' need to get louder," Noriko Mukasa, a 72-year-old resident of Chiba prefecture, said.On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular news conference that Japan has already discharged 15,600 tons of nuclear-contaminated water into the Pacific, transferring the risk of pollution to the world despite domestic and international opposition, which is extremely irresponsible.The "safe and transparent" discharge plan claimed by the Japanese government is not convincing, Wang added.Concerns voicedChen Xiang, an associate research fellow with the Institute of Japanese Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that Japan should allow stakeholders to conduct on-site investigations, which is crucial for understanding the potential environmental hazards resulting from the ocean discharge of nuclear-contaminated water.Allowing stakeholders to conduct these tests not only serves as an effective oversight, but also as a precautionary measure, he said.Although TEPCO said the water has been diluted and the concentration of radionuclides is within regulatory requirements, simply lowering the concentration of radioactive substances does not eliminate the danger to humans, said Masashi Goto, a former nuclear power plant engineer."The amount of nuclear-contaminated water released from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in the first round of discharge is greater than the average amount of nuclear wastewater released by all the nuclear power plants in Japan annually in the five years prior to the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011. Even if the contaminated water is diluted, it will still have an impact on the marine environment," Goto, who is also a member of the Citizens' Commission on Nuclear Energy, said."The IAEA only stated that the data provided by TEPCO meets safety standards, but did not confirm the safety of ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) treated water."Furthermore, the current research on the effects of human exposure to nuclear radiation is still incomplete. In this context, TEPCO's claim that diluting and discharging nuclear-contaminated water into the sea is safe is not scientifically sound," Goto said.Moreover, the International Atomic Energy Agency is an organization established to facilitate the development of nuclear power plants, but it lacks credibility in supervising the safety of nuclear-contaminated water discharge, he added."Japan experienced a nuclear accident that resulted in a large amount of radioactive substances being generated, so the government has an obligation to make every effort to minimize the impact of the nuclear accident on the environment. However, the government has been neglecting this duty," he said.Reporter: Jiang Xueqing

In the aftermath of the Republic's collapse, a lack of shared understanding of policy priorities and effective civic interventions is impeding development of pathways toward stability for Afghanistan. The situation has since deteriorated across all scores of human security under the Taliban, with concurrent human rights, humanitarian, and political crises. In this episode we look at how narratives of state failure, shaped largely by Western expertise, have overlooked and undermined the progress made by Afghans in healthcare, education, and economic stabilization. We argue that the outsized nature of the international intervention in Afghanistan, alongside a top-down approach to conflict resolution, has contributed to a misrepresentation of on-the-ground realities. Featuring Marika Theros and Sahar Halaimzai, both policy fellows at the LSE Conflict and Civicness Research Group (CCRG) and the co-directors of the Peacerep's Afghanistan Research Network. Marika and Sahar in 2021 worked together on the creation and realization of the ‘trilateral 1.5 track dialogue' at the Atlantic Council, bringing together US, European and Afghan stakeholders to develop an inclusive and longer-term strategic outlook on stability in Afghanistan.

Join Wes this week on Shaping Success as he interviews his good friend Jhae Pfenning who is also is co host on One Drink Wednesday currently on Instagram, but they are looking to move it to YouTube. Wes and Jhae talk about growing up and cars.In keeping with the spirit of One Drink Wednesday, Wes and Jhae take a shot of the energy drink Magic Mind. Jhae found when he took it in the morning, he doesn't get that 2:30 pm slump. He would typically need some coffee at that time for a pick-me-up, but he didn't need it. Wes and Jhae agree that Magic Mind is healthier than coffee and booze, and it also tastes good! One Drink Wednesday is a show co hosted by Wes and Jhae every Wednesday at 7pm PST. They typically have a show and tell, this day in history, and just added a segment called Rotten Tomatoes. They are looking into having a guest along with him and Jhae to play the Rotten Tomato game. Wes and Jhae talk about vehicles. They have different habits when it comes to obtaining vehicles and the types of vehicles they favor. Wes favors Honda and Chevrolet. He likes to shuffle newer vehicles. He typically leases his vehicles and switches them out every so often. He had a Honda Pilot, but when he and his family moved to the country away from everything, it wasn't a good choice. It also wasn't big enough for his family. He ended up leasing a Tahoe and buying a Honda Civic. He likes the fact he gets 40 miles to the gallon in the Civic. He also says he feels more comfortable in a Honda Civic with snow tires in the winter than a 4-wheel drive with no snow tires. Jhae is drawn to Dodge and buys used cars because before it was all they could afford. His wife bought a used Dodge Neon. Jhae had to drive that thing around campus when he was in school, and snow tires helped him get around in that vehicle that otherwise he'd be stuck. He and Wes discuss the best snow tires and studless versus studded. The conversation turns to their kids and are they mature enough to drive when they are old enough to drive? Jhae points out that just because a person is old enough to drive, doesn't mean they should. The same can be said for drinking. Know your kids. Will they appreciate the hard work their parents put into getting them a car and just giving it to them, or do they feel like they are entitled? If they feel entitled, it may be best to let them work for it. Jhae and Wes point out that when kids start a job and have to pay for their own stuff, that is when they begin to appreciate their things and take care of them. In Arizona where Jhae is, kids don't have to go to driving school to get a driver's license. Kids can be taught independently. If kids take the driver's education course, they get an insurance break. In Idaho, it's mandatory to take the driver's course in order to get a license. Wes says his Nieces and Nephews had to have 6 hours of driving in the course to get their license.Growing up in Texas, Jhae got his first car when his Grandmother passed away, and his parents sold it to him. He was 20 and in college at the time. His parents would help him with payments and car insurance a few times when he couldn't make the payments. For Wes, growing up in Oregon he passed his drivers test on the first try in his Mom's truck which was a stick. Even though he passed, his parents felt someone had to still be in the vehSupport the showFor merchandise, podcast and youtube: westankersley.com Check out our sponsor The Warriors Collection for coffee, gear and more use code TANK at check out for a special Discount! https://warriorscollectionbrand.com/ Follow Shaping Success https://shapingsuccesspodcast.buzzsprout.com/ Email Wes@westankersley.com for guest ideas or to be on the show!

However, others wrote that as a broke millennial, if changing their names would mean getting free sushi, then they were all for it. 更有外國網友開始呼籲美國其他連鎖店開始推類似的活動，並問道自己如果把名字改成「T-Bone」（丁骨牛排）或是「Donut」（甜甜圈），能不能在牛排館和Krispy Kreme獲得免費的餐點。 Some also called on American chain restaurants to try similar promotions, with one volunteering to change their name to “T-bone” while another wanted “Donut” so that they could get freebies from Krispy Kreme.

Riders will receive several notifications before they lose access to the app, the company said. 不過，Uber也說，不會突然以行為不佳為由禁止叫車以致冒犯到乘客。該公司說，乘客會先接獲數次通知，然後才會無法存取app。 And they also will have opportunities to improve their rating to remain in good standing. Tips to boost a user's rating include：''encouraging polite behavior, avoiding leaving trash in the vehicle and avoiding requests for drivers to exceed the speed limit,'' Uber said. 而且乘客也有機會改善其評分以維持好名聲。提升使用者評分的秘訣包括：「鼓勵禮貌行為，避免在車內留下垃圾，與避免要求司機超速，」Uber說。 Next Article: Topic: Kakao suspends online comments for entertainment articles Kakao暫停網友對娛樂新聞發表網路留言 South Korea's internet company Kakao said Friday that it would prevent users from posting malicious comments on its online entertainment news articles next month, pledging also to overhaul its search engine functionalities to address cyberbullying. 南韓的網路公司Kakao週五表示，下個月將禁止使用者對其網路的娛樂新聞報導，張貼惡意留言。該公司也承諾大幅修改其搜尋引擎的功能，以解決網路霸凌。 The measure came after mounting calls for the internet portal website to address cyberbullying targeting celebrities and people in general. The calls intensified after singer-turned-actress Sulli passed away last week in an apparent suicide. While the cause of death was not made public, it was widely believed Sulli had been suffering from depression. 該措施係在要求入口網站解決鎖定名人和一般人的網路霸凌的呼聲愈來愈高後提出。在歌手轉型為演員的雪莉上週過世、死因顯然是自殺後，這樣的呼聲變得更大。儘管尚未公開死因，但外界咸認為雪莉死前受憂鬱症所苦。 Kakao, however, said the decision had not been made because of a single case and that there had been heated debate over the issue for a long time. The company also decided to suspend its “related search words” service for celebrities immediately for its messenger app, Kakao Talk. 然而，Kakao指稱，長久以來就有關於該議題的熱烈論辯，並非因個案而做出實施新措施的決定。該公司亦決定立即暫停其通訊應用程式Kakao Talk針對名人的「相關搜尋字詞」服務。 Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1327534 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1322297 Next Article Topic: United We Stan: How the Internet Merged Pop Culture and Politics Whatever persona Elizabeth Warren hopes to project in her presidential campaign, it is probably not that of a child witch. But that is the persona that some of her biggest fans have chosen for her. 雖不知華倫希望在競選總統時以何種形象出現，但大概不會是巫童，然而這正是她的一些鐵粉為她選擇的人物形象。 Images of Hermione Granger, played in the “Harry Potter” films by a young Emma Watson, materialize at Warren's every move. Warren steps onto the debate stage, and her fans craft tweets where Hermione stands in as her, rolling her eyes at the boys in wizarding class. Warren reads the whole Mueller report, and Hermione smugly wags her wand. In one extremely cursed tweet with zero likes, Warren's face is transplanted onto Hermione's frame, posed alongside Beto O'Rourke as Harry and Pete Buttigieg as Ron Weasley. 《哈利波特》電影中由年輕的艾瑪．華森所飾演的妙麗的人物形象，被落實在華倫的一舉一動中。華倫走上辯論會舞台時，她的粉絲們將妙麗對魔法課上男孩翻白眼的照片製作成一則推文，妙麗成了她的化身。華倫展讀穆勒的整份報告時，妙麗得意地搖著魔仗。在一則被罵到翻、沒人按讚的推文中，華倫的臉被安到妙麗的身體上，並跟歐洛克扮演的哈利，以及布塔朱吉扮演的榮恩一起擺姿勢。 What is this strange chimera of presidential campaigning: a candidate's head on pop culture's body? It is the product of a great convergence between politics and culture, citizenship and commerce, ideology and aesthetics. Civic participation has been converted seamlessly into consumer practice. It is democracy reimagined as fandom, and it is now a dominant mode of experiencing politics. 候選人的頭配上流行文化的身體，這是總統選戰中什麼樣的奇怪幻象？它是政治與文化、公民與商業、意識形態與美學的巨大融合的產物。公民參與已經無縫接軌轉化為消費行為。它是個被重新想像成粉絲圈的民主，且現在正是體驗政治的一種主流模式。 You can see it in the efforts to sort the candidates into “Harry Potter” houses, converting the election to a personality quiz in a children's book, and in the mashup video that distills the 2020 candidates into quotes from Michael Scott, the buffoonish boss of “The Office.” 在試圖把候選人分類成《哈利波特》家族人物，將選舉轉化成童書中的人格測驗、以及把2020年候選人發言變成《我們的辦公室》影集滑稽老闆麥可．史考特名言的混搭影片等行動中，都能看出這一點。 A photograph of three congresswomen of color is published and instantly compared to a Whitney Houston GIF, as if women interrogating Michael Cohen are analogous to Houston confronting her cheating boyfriend. Politicos of all stripes are styled as saints and stamped onto novelty devotional prayer candles. 一張三名有色人種國會女議員的照片被公佈後，立即被跟惠妮·休斯頓的照片相提並論，彷彿審問柯恩的女性就如同質問不忠男友的休斯頓，各種政治人物都被描繪成聖徒，印在新奇的祈禱蠟燭上。 Here, political engagement slips easily into the habits of consumption. President Donald Trump's fans follow him around the country like groupies, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's boosters fetishize her funnel-neck coat as a symbol of the #resistance. 在這一點上，政治參與很容易不知不覺變成消費習慣。川普總統的粉絲們像追星族一樣跟著他走遍全國，眾議院議長波洛西的支持者們則把她的漏斗領外套當作＃抵抗運動的象徵。 Candidates' supporters now identify as stans — a term derived from the 2000 Eminem song about a fan who becomes so obsessed, he kills. 候選人的支持者現在以stans自居，而這個詞源自阿姆2000年的歌曲，講述一位變得太痴狂、他所害死的粉絲。 Political stanning has a way of remapping the landscape of mainstream politics — maybe even overwriting physical reality itself. Frantic online cultural production swarms around Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whenever she experiences a health scare, as if memes alone could sustain the octogenarian's life. 政治上的瘋狂迷戀往往能重繪主流政治的樣貌，甚至可能掩蓋現實世界本身。每當大法官茹絲．貝德．金斯伯格經歷一場健康恐慌時，瘋狂的網路文化產物便群起圍繞著她，彷彿只有迷因才能維持這位八旬老人的生命。 Trump's fans imbue him with improbable prowess when they edit him into pro-wrestling videos showing him smacking down CNN. But perhaps the most explicit riff on the trend was the infamous Beto O'Rourke sex tweet, which translated his political positions into sexual ones. 當川普粉絲將他編輯進職業摔角影片，顯示他擊倒CNN時，給他注入了不可思議的力量。而歐洛克臭名昭彰的性推文，則可能是對此一趨勢最明顯的嘲諷，因它將他的政治立場轉變成了性別立場。 Source article: https://paper.udn.com/udnpaper/POH0067/345410/web/
Jim McCullough is a founding member and singer for the Melbourne based proto-punk band Civic. Civic has embarked on their first North American tour with three-pronged support of their most recent single Hourglass, the US release of their record New Vietnam and their most recent record, Taken By Force (all available via ATO Records). In this episode, Joe and Jim discuss the punk evolution of the band in a relatively short amount of time, what drives them to write great songs and why it's important to keep rock n roll alive. Jim tells us why the Civic live show is different from the recordings, how it relates to his background in music and he shares a bit of the Civic cooperative writing/recording process. We get Jim's impression of the first US Civic tour, his take on IHOP and we hear a couple tunes.

We're starting to see some sentences in the January 6th investigation, and former President Trump is facing multiple trials - but will the consequences be enough to discourage similar things in the future? We've talked in the past with Dr. Ben Berger, Associate Professor of Political Science at Swarthmore College and Executive Director of the Lang Center for Civic & Social Responsibility, about the gaps in our system when it comes to holding people in power accountable. Today, we bring Dr. Berger back to check in - have we been doing better, or are we still lacking accountability where it really counts? We discuss whether the January 6th cases are making progress towards change and how it affects public trust when politicians on both sides of the aisle get away with bad behaviors.

Honda's Civic Type R made a big splash when it launched in the late 1990s. The Civic Type R gave sport compact buyers around the world a potent front-wheel drive hatchback and fueled the growing interest in Japanese imports. The only problem: It didn't come to the United States. No, instead Honda decided to shuffle its sport compact onto U.S. shorelines under the Acura banner. This low-production Integra Type R was obviously popular and now commands a premium as a collector's piece. Fortunately, in 2017, Honda did bring the Civic Type R to the U.S. and finally gave Honda fans the option to easily and legally own Honda's hot Civic. When Acura brought back the Integra, it was only a matter of time before the company ushered in its Type R analog, and it's finally here. The 2024 Acura Integra Type S borrows the powertrain and hard points from Honda's Civic Type R but gives it a more road-friendly makeover. The Integra Type S doesn't have the heavily bolstered seats or large rear wing, but it does have more power than its Honda counterpoint. On this episode of Quick Spin, host Wesley Wren hops behind the wheel of Acura's hopped-up Integra and puts it through its paces. Wren takes you on a guided tour of the Integra Type S and highlights some of his favorite features and what sets it apart from the Civic Type R. Wren also takes you along for a live drive review. Wren chats with Autoweek associate editor Emmet White, who also spent time with the Integra Type S. The pair discuss how the Integra feels compared to the Civic and what they both like about the car. Closing the show, the pair breaks down what makes the Integra Type S special.

Even pro-life critics of Donald Trump credit him with appointing three Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v Wade. But now Trump is calling further restrictions to abortion a “terrible thing.” Why are pro-life conservatives still overwhelming supporting the ex-President? David French discusses the shifting politics of the pro-life movement, the risk of aligning with Trump, and why abortions are on the rise after overturning Roe. Plus, data shows most Americans have always been ignorant about how their own government is structured and works, so why is civic ignorance now more dangerous than before? French says it's because the civic ignorance of the citizens has now infected our government leaders as well, and these elites no longer police themselves or defend institutional norms. 0:00 - Theme Song 0:17 - Trump's comments about abortion 13:57 - Pragmatic ways to reduce abortion 26:05 - A Culture of Hope 31:12 - Sponsor - With God Daily Sign up today at withgoddaily.com 32:14 - Sponsor - Dreamland Baby Go to dreamlandbabyco.com and enter my code HOLYPOST at checkout to receive 20% off sitewide + free shipping 34:11 - Civic Ignorance 1:06:28- End Credits Other resources: David French: https://twitter.com/DavidAFrench Trump tries to play both sides on abortion https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/4219271-trump-tries-to-play-both-sides-on-abortion/ The Importance of Hope in the Pro-Life Movement https://www.nytimes.com/2023/06/22/opinion/abortion-law-reality.html The articulate ignorance of Vivek Ramaswamy https://www.nytimes.com/2023/08/31/opinion/ramaswamy-political-ignorance.html https://www.holypost.com/ Support us and find premium content by going to https://www.patreon.com/holypost The Holy Post is supported by our listeners.
