The Idaho news of this week has brought up an intriguing question: Should the Governor still be the acting Governor even when they are not in the State? In Boise, there is a low-income appartment complex that will be torn down to create a higher end apartment complex. Would you be okay with a part of our taxes going to develop low income housing options? On top of discussing those topics, Nate discusses a PEW research poll that showed 2/3rds of Republicans want Trump to be a part of the GOP in some way, while 44% would like to see him run for president again. Do you agree with that poll? (10/7/21)

The temperature in the United States is high. People are angry. They aren't particularly angry with someone they know personally, but rather there is growing frustration with the way the country is being run. It seems like every day a news story breaks that sparks outrage from one group and a heated defense from another. Phrases like Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, anti-vax, mask-mandate, Critical Race Theory, and Make America Great Again immediately elevate the emotional level of any conversation. Much of this has to do with our domestic politics, but the range of topics that Americans are angry about run the gamut from public health to foreign policy to education. It's time that we take a step back to reflect and decompress. What is happening in our nation? Why are Americans so hot? What factors have contributed to this atmosphere of anger that simmers beneath the surface of every public discourse? What does the Bible say about anger? Is it ever justified or is there a more appropriate response? All that and more on this edition of Questions from the Pew.

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:   I recently interviewed Christina Hu, the Director of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign about the Pew Research report on Asian communities which misrepresented the Taiwanese. For months Christina and the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign team worked with Pew Research to get an official response issued. After several months of communications, Pew reissued the report in question on September 8 with the categories of “Chinese, with Taiwanese,” “Taiwanese,” and “Chinese, except Taiwanese.” When I spoke with Christina in episode 148, she briefly mentioned her documentary filmmaking, so I thought now would be a good time to share an interview that I did with her back in 2018.   In 2018, I spoke with Christina about her documentary filmmaking. Her films have focused on presenting history through personal perspectives. She talked about her first film and her love of history. Christina's films about Taiwan have covered topics like the blacklist and the historic ruling by Taiwan's High Court that has paved the way for the legalization of same sex marriage.   Here's a little preview of what we talked about in the podcast:   How she got started making documentary films Where the term “blacklist” came from The Blacklist Workshop (aka Blacklist Studio) Her Blacklist Film Series What is the blacklist? Her first documentary film, Her Journey The gap year (in 1999) she spent in Germany in between high school and college When she was in third grade in Taiwan and was disciplined at school for saying that her family was from the province of Taiwan instead of Fujian How she observed the Tiananmen Square massacre in Taiwan The films that she has made about Taiwan How her interest in the history of Taiwan has motivated her filmmaking The challenge of telling the story of Taiwan through film Her documentary film about Taiwanese Canadian Columbus Leo     Related Links:   Christina Hu's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdfvPGT3zqZPP3rfAFAGLdw   Christina's films:   Her Journey: https://youtu.be/yi1DT2ndy_w   Blacklist - Short Series 1- Graduate Students: https://youtu.be/oGwOYwVG6dE   Blacklist - Short Series 2 - Columbus Leo: https://youtu.be/-mmrQq6hWv0   Blacklist - Short Series 3 - Shadows of 228: https://youtu.be/Lz8vCX1qCvc   1988 WFTA: World Federation of Taiwanese Associations Conference in Taiwan: https://youtu.be/cY2Z2WlSZAc   Taiwan Pride in 2017 - New York Pride Parade and Chi Jia Wei: https://youtu.be/9fNx-gdOhEE   Taiwan Pride in 2018 - Challenges to Marriage Equality: https://youtu.be/HcawPHS5xvs   林義雄母親與女兒命案:Bruce Jacobs 教授回憶錄 (An interview with Bruce Jacobs about the Lin Yi-hsiung family murders on February 28, 1980): https://youtu.be/ihvJwVW8XEc   Lin Yi-hsiung: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lin_Yi-hsiung   The Black List Studio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blacklist_Studio   World Federation of Taiwanese Associations: http://taiwaneseamericanhistory.org/blog/world-federation-of-taiwanese-associations/   MacGyver television show: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacGyver   The Adventures of Tintin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Tintin   A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn: https://amzn.to/3l6QXhF

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for September 16th, 2021.A tough statistic for the “it's like the chicken pox” crowd. 19 months into the pandemic, 1 in 500 American residents has died from COVID-19. The death rate for certain demographics age 40-64 is even more stark; for black Americans, 1 in 480 has died, for Hispanics, 1 in 390, and 1 out of every 240 Native Americans have died.Public health officials in Los Angeles County will begin requiring proof of at least one dose of a vaccine by October 7 for customers and employees at indoor bars, wineries, breweries, and nightclubs. By November 4, full vaccination will be required. Government guidelines in England say healthcare staff can decide whether children 12-15 get a vaccine against their parents' wishes. School headmasters worry this virtually guarantees disruptive protests are right around the corner. Shots will be administered by School Age Immunization Service teams and if parents don't give their consent but the child is deemed able to make an informed decision and wants the vaccine, the parents will be overruled. There was a time it was believed when someone an anti-vaxxer knew personally died of COVID, it would change their minds. A new Pew poll says maybe not. 72% of American adults know someone who's been hospitalized or killed. The death count in America is now a few thousand away from surpassing the 1918 Spanish Flu as the single largest death toll from a pandemic in the U.S. It's probably the saddest aspect of the vaccine debate, friends and family ripping themselves apart and ending relationships over their disagreements. A Harris poll shows 33% of vaccinated Americans have stopped seeing people they know because they haven't been vaccinated. 8% don't intend to ever socialize with them again even if they do eventually get vaccinated. In the United States cases were down 8%, deaths are up 37%, and hospitalizations are down 4% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,523,673 active cases in the United States.With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations over 14 days are Montana up 47%, Ohio 40%, West Virginia 34%, Alaska 31%, and Idaho and New Hampshire 29%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Knox, KY. Perry, KY. Monroe, KY. Martin, KY. Powell, KY. Whitley, KY. White, IL. Lincoln, MT. Russell, KY. And Lewis, WV. There have been at least 666,598 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related.The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont unchanged at 68.7%, Connecticut at 67.3%, and Maine at 67%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40%, Wyoming at 40.2%, and Idaho at 40.3%.

Ten years ago this week, a group of activists pitched tents in New York’s Zuccotti Park. They said they were protesting against economic inequality and the gap between the people who hold the top 1% of wealth in this country and the rest of us. Soon, people in cities all over the globe launched their own Occupy Wall Street protests, and while police broke up the original protest in New York two months later, Occupy Wall Street went a lot longer and a lot further than many expected. “There were experts, people in the social sciences who had been studying inequality, and were very well aware of its explosive growth in the period since the 1970s. But it wasn’t really on the radar of the general population until Occupy. I think that was one of the major impacts,” said Ruth Milkman, a sociology professor at the City University of New York Graduate Center, who has studied the Occupy Wall Street movement. Milkman said while Occupy Wall Street may not have done much to close the growing income inequality gap in this country, it made the issue part of the national political conversation.

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:   In April of this year, reports published by the Pew Research Center analyzing Asian American communities included footnotes stating that data for “  ‘Chinese' includes those identifying as ‘Taiwanese.' ” Soon after, in May, the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign published an open letter and petition on TaiwaneseAmerican.org asking Pew Research to issue an apology to the Taiwanese American community, and to re-publish its findings with Taiwanese as a separate category.   Upon hearing this, I reached out to Christina Hu, Director of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign asking to interview her about this. She was working on getting an apology and correction from Pew, so I agreed to wait until she got an official response from Pew to do the interview.   For months, the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign team worked on getting a response from Pew Research and by July Christina told me that she was hoping to get an official response.   On Wednesday, September 8, 2021 Pew Research reissued their report on Asian American communities which had previously misrepresented the Taiwanese. To be clear it was a correction, not an apology. Data for 2000, 2010 and 2019 included the categories of “Chinese, with Taiwanese,” “Taiwanese,” “Chinese, except Taiwanese” and “Okinawan.”   I spoke with Christina Hu, the Director of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign and Chieh-ting Yeh, the Media Director of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign about what transpired after the Taiwanese American community's response to Pew Research's initial report on Asian communities, and what led to Pew to re-issue their report.   We also spoke about the 2020 Write in Taiwanese Campaign and the decades long advocacy work of the Taiwanese American Citizens League (TACL), that started in 1990 to educate the Taiwanese American community to complete the US Census by not only checking the “Other Asian” box, but also writing in “Taiwanese.”     The Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign Team:     Christina Hu   Director, Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign   Director of Civic Engagement, Taiwanese American Citizens League     Chieh-Ting Yeh   Media Director, Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign   Editor-in-Chief, Ketagalan Media     Leona Chen   Creative Director, Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign   Editor-in-Chief, TaiwaneseAmerican.org     Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:   How Christina got involved in the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign How Ting (Chieh-ting) got involved in the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign The background and history of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign The evolution of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign since it started in1990 Why it's important to be counted on the U.S. census It wasn't until 1960 that people could select their own race on the U.S. census Why it is important for Taiwanese Americans to be counted on the U.S. census How the Pew Research Reports which used U.S. census data misrepresented the Taiwanese The Pew Research Report on Asian American communities that included a footnote stating that data for “ ‘Chinese' includes those identifying as ‘Taiwanese.' ” The communications that the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign and Christina had with Pew Research and Neil Ruiz, the Associate Director of Race and Ethnicity The open letter and online petition (posted on TaiwaneseAmerican.org) asking Pew Research to issue an apology to the Taiwanese American community, and to re-publish its findings with Taiwanese as a separate category The various groups that signed the online petition and supported the Taiwanese American community's campaign to ask Pew Research for an apology and correction of their reports that did not include Taiwanese as a separate category How Christina discovered that the Pew Research report had disappeared Okinawans as a separate category What happened in the four months that the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign tried to get an official response from Pew Research The conversations that Christina had with Neil Ruiz about why it was important for her personally, to identify as Taiwanese, and why Pew could say they were confused by self-reported data from the Taiwanese American community that unequivocally indicated that people wanted to be identified as Taiwanese The slogan of the Write in Taiwanese Census Campaign     Related Links:   Key facts about Asian origin groups in the U.S. (from Pew Research): https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021/04/29/key-facts-about-asian-origin-groups-in-the-u-s/   Response to Pew Research Reports Hiding Taiwanese Identity: “We made it count.

We're talking about why we should learn to forgive. Forgiving others is one of the more difficult virtues Jesus asks us to practice. Forgiveness does not mean that we overlook a person's lies or bad behavior. Rather, we let go of the hurt to live a peaceful, joy-filled life. Holding on to past wounds makes us bitter and gives others power over our lives. As St. Augustine famously said, “Resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” In this podcast, we learn that:  - If we've been hurt, we can pray for a forgiving heart.  - Practicing forgiveness doesn't give others a pass — it gives you peace.  - God will help us heal our wounds if we ask for strength and guidance.

Most guys tell me they want to be better men, husbands, and fathers and I've learned that we can't do it alone. We need community. Participation in men's groups help us beat feelings of isolation and loneliness.

This week we are re-sharing one of our favorite episodes - a conversation with Carl Safina about beauty, wonder and why animals matter. "Beings who've succeeded on earth for millions of years, don't seek, and should not require, our approval. They belong as well as we do. We do ourselves no favors by asking whether their existence is worth our while. We are hardly in a position to judge, hurdling and lurching along as we are with no goal, no plan except: bigger, faster, more.  If we had the courage to be honest about it, we would have to admit that whales and birds and apes and all the rest live fully up to everything of which they are capable. And we, regrettably, fall short of doing that. For them, to be is enough. For us in the isolating alienation of our title retreat from Life, nothing is enough. It is strange how dissatisfied we insist on being, when there is so much of the world to know and love."  Carl Safina, Becoming Wild  Carl Safina grew up raising pigeons on a rooftop in Brooklyn and hasn't stopped interacting with the wild since. He is an ecologist and author who writes extensively about our human relationship with the natural world and what we can do to make it better.   First step: we need to care.  Carl's books make us care. He advocates for every living creature out there, and is always graciously pointing out why animals matter, not only why they matter to us, but why they matter to themselves - something I'm pretty certain that most humans don't think about often enough.  In his most recent book Becoming Wild, How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty and Achieve Peace, Carl travels around the planet, exploring the cultures of chimpanzees in Uganda, sperm whales in the Caribbean, and Scarlet macaws in Peru. He shows us how other species teach and learn, and what life looks like in their animal societies, which is often as astonishing as it is spectacularly beautiful.  His writing has won several awards, including a MacArthur Genius Prize, Pew and Guggenheim fellowships, and the John Burrows, James Beard, and George Rabb metals. He is the first Endowed Professor for Nature and Humanity at Stony Brook University and the founding president of the not for profit, Safina Center. He also hosted the PBS series, Saving the Ocean.

In this episode, Victor Adams and I talk about PURPOSE. It's all too easy for our daily lives to feel like an endless cycle of repetition. So we try to find things to give us pleasure and avoid a feeling of emptiness. The problem is, we look to everything else besides the one person who can truly give us purpose. Psalm 57:2 tells us that God is the one who fulfills his purpose for each one of us. If we want to find the purpose we're looking for in life, we have to set aside all the other things we turn to and start talking and listening to God. In this episode, we learn that: - When you don't have a purpose, life becomes all about your feelings. - Lack of purpose is the root of addictions and other issues. - There's a longing in yourself that only God can fulfill.

On today's podcast, we're talking about “being saved” and what that means for Catholics. Unfortunately, the process of salvation is not as simple as saying, “I accept the Lord as my Savior.” That's a great start on the road to salvation, but committing to acts of faith and love is what carries us down the path to eternal life. In many of his letters, St. Paul reminds us that salvation is a journey. While Baptism frees us of original sin, we make choices throughout life that determine whether or not we are saved. Regular participation in the sacraments, liturgy, and prayer brings us closer to God and the gift of eternal life. In this episode, we learn that: - Baptism marks just the beginning of the road to salvation. - As adults, we are called to participate in our own process of being saved. - Sacraments such as Confession and the Eucharist are stepping stones toward salvation.

On today's podcast, we're talking about the mistaken idea that a personal relationship with God is a Protestant thing and not necessary for Catholics. Nothing could be further from the truth! Throughout the Gospels, Christ invites us to know Him, not just know about Him. Pope Benedict said, “Many people perceive Christianity as something institutional, rather than an encounter with Christ, which explains why they don't see it as a source of joy.” From the Sacraments to Scriptures, to songs and prayers, Catholicism creates opportunities for each and every one of us to experience the closeness and friendship of God. This is the “why” of our faith.

RUSH: I just got this, and I'm not able to study it and really make a whole lot of sense out of it. It's a Pew survey on who watches television and what the partisan political split of various TV show audiences is and all. You get down to what the Pew — P-e-w — survey of this stuff, you get down to one section, who's got the smartest, who has the most knowledgeable audience, and on television — just listen to what this says. ‘On television, The O'Reilly Factor, has the most knowledgeable audience, 27% of the audience are college grads, which matches the national average,' but, but: Only three audiences in the Pew survey scored higher on high knowledge than O'Reilly at his Factor TV show. Regular readers of The New Yorker and the Atlantic, regular Rush Limbaugh listeners, and regular Weekly Standard and New Republic readers. I don't know if there's anybody above that. I don't have that, because radio and this stuff is not part of the survey, at least from the website that I'm reading this from. But I have always known it. I have always known that you people are among the most knowledgeable, engaged, informed, and educated people listening to any media in the country today. I think I found documented evidence of it here from Pew, but it's just a little aside in a story about television audiences. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2006/07/31/rush_limbaugh_audience_among_most_knowledgeable_and_educated_in_all_of_american_media4/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Today we're talking about courage. When I think of courage, I recall the story of David and Goliath where the shepherd boy slays the cruel giant. When we surrender to God, we gain strength to conquer our personal Goliaths, whether it's work stress, addiction issues, marital struggles, or greed. From Biblical times to today, Philippians 4:13 holds true: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” On this podcast, we learn that: - Once we let go of control and surrender to God, we find courage, peace, and joy. - Vulnerability shared in intimate relationships signifies strength, not weakness. - As fathers, our duties are to model a virtuous life and teach our children to avoid the pressures to conform.

When news broke that the new president of the SBC lifted portions of his message from the previous SBC president's sermon without attribution, #Sermongate erupted. The Holy Post crew unpacks the controversy, why so many pastors either outsource their sermon prep or plagiarize, and why the pressure to preach may be harming the church. Then, in a dramatic reversal, new data from Pew says mainline churches are growing while evangelical churches are shrinking. Have evangelicals been burned by their own critique that mainline churches don't take the Bible seriously? Then, author and advocate Mary DeMuth explains the history of sexual abuse in the church, why cover ups are now so common, how we can respond more redemptively, and the best ways to prevent abuse in the first place.

On today's podcast, I'm joined by Deacon Jeff Drzycimski to talk about those times when we feel bogged down in our daily routines. It's like we're checking off the to-do list and wondering where God is in all of this. In this episode, we learn that:  - When we get bogged down in a bunch of tasks, we're depriving ourselves of joy.  - Looking at each daily task to determine how we are using it to glorify God restores that joy.  - If a task does not bring glory to God, we should ask ourselves why we're doing it.

Today we're talking about the temptation to allow the ebb and flow of feelings to guide our faith. Men often tell me that they skip Mass or Bible study because they feel stressed out by their jobs, they aren't excited by the work that faith requires, or they become impatient when God isn't answering their prayers. On this podcast, we learn that: - Strong faith is built through daily effort. - God is ready to help us grow in faith if we ask for grace. - Periods of desolation often lead to vibrant spiritual development.

We've spent every month since the start of this pandemic picking apart jobs numbers and unemployment claims. But there's a lot happening in the labor force that isn't captured in that data — like the toll long-term unemployment can take on those looking for work. A recent Pew survey says about half of unemployed adults in the U.S. are pessimistic about future employment and more than half have experienced mental health issues like anxiety or depression. On today’s show: We look at how these factors can create a less predictable back-to-work economy. Also on the program: What’s driving the housing shortage, how New Yorkers feel about COVID-19 restrictions lifting, and how the pandemic changed economic forecasting.
