Is Temple, Texas a model for the nation in how to stop city government from implementing divisive DEI programs? Residents have stopped the hiring of a BIPOC Chicago DEI firm. But that's just half the battle. Now they must work to kill the DEI plan altogether. Lou Ann Anderson and I discuss all the aspects of this continuing battle on Political Pursuits and Planet Logic.
Außenministerin Annalena Baerbock besucht in den nächsten drei Tagen sowohl Griechenland als auch die Türkei. Da die Beziehungen der beiden Nato-Partner wegen eines Streits um Gasvorkommen im Mittelmeer so angespannt sind wie lange nicht, ist Baerbocks Reise nicht ganz einfach. Zusätzlich ist die Türkei der einzige Vermittler zwischen der Ukraine und Russland, Griechenland wiederum ist eine der wichtigsten EU-Außengrenzen. Wie Baerbock in diesem Spannungsfeld vermitteln will, beschreibt Samiha Shafy, Politikredakteurin der ZEIT. Im Kampf gegen die hohe Inflation hat die US-Notenbank Federal Reserve (Fed) den Leitzins kräftig angehoben – um 0,75 Prozentpunkte. Ähnliches macht die EZB. Das mag gegen die Inflation in Europa und den USA helfen, doch es bringt etliche Länder des Globalen Südens nahe an den Kollaps. Warum das so ist und was dagegen unternommen wird, erklärt ZEIT-Redakteur Thomas Fischermann – Volkswirt und Politologe. Und sonst so?

Slide deck: https://bit.ly/3JiZSXO - Click here to open an account with Saxo - Today features Saxo CIO Steen Jakobsen as we look at last night's FOMC meeting and Fed Chair Powell's unwillingness to push back strongly against market expectations for the path of Fed policy and really unwillingness to provide any guidance beyond data dependence. This sparked a strong risk-on rally as the market indulged in a complacent forecast for the path of inflation and the path for rates - something we would push back against strongly.

In his memoir about leaving Syria to life in the UK, my friend Hassan (also a previous podcast guest), shared the terrifying experience he had when attempting to reach Greece by boat. His rubber dinghy was approached by three masked men on a bigger boat, who stole their petrol tank and violently pushed them away from the shore. What Hassan experienced was a pushback.What are pushbacks you might ask, well…in short, a pushback is when refugees and migrants are forced back over a border, generally immediately after they have crossed it. It is not just illegal to send someone back without consideration or assessment of their individual circumstances, but the violence with which these pushbacks are often carried out is costing lives. Welcome back to Episode FOUR of The Journey - a 6-part podcast series following migration routes from Africa, The Middle East and Ukraine, to northern Europe.So far this season we've explored the reasons why people are leaving their countries, we've taken a look at what life looks like in the first countries they arrive to and we've delved into the risks they face along their journey's.Today's episode is a very important one. Before we went on this trip we had a rough idea of what the themes of these episodes might be…. But this one was unexpected. Pretty much every person we spoke to, and definitely in every country along the way we heard stories about pushbacks.In this episode we hear from academics, aid workers and also the testimony of someone who has actually lived the experience of being pushed back.This is a shocking topic and episode, but one I truly believe we all need to know about, as the first step to stopping these pushbacks from happening at our borders.

What should kids be reading in school? A movement has swept through K-12 classrooms to cancel classic texts and replace them with more racially diverse voices. Yet the very authors these activists are seeking to eliminate from school curricula influenced prominent African-American thinkers like Martin Luther King Jr. and James Baldwin. In this episode, Naomi and Ian are joined by https://drprather.com/about-2/ (Dr. Anika Prather), professor in the Classics department at Howard University and founder of The Living Water School. To “decolonize” the curriculum, eliminating works by Shakespeare and Socrates, explained Dr. Prather, is to create holes in our understanding of black authors and the interconnected history of people today. While these educators might mean well, their decision to stop reading the classics in the name of social justice will only prevent our children from forming a broader worldview. For a better understanding of how to teach the classics, educators should draw inspiration from Dr. Prather's own https://thelwschool.org/ (classically inspired school) based on the Sudbury model.

Rick talks with Mr. Levi Browde , Executive Director for the Falun Dafa Information Center (www.Faluninfo.net), and Mr. William Huang. Levi discusses what is Falun Gong, why the persecution, the scale of 23-year persecution, forced organ harvesting, the recent report by the Falun Dafa Information Center, "Pandemic, Persecution, and Pushback", and latest updates on the persecution and global support. Mr. Huang shares his own experience of slave labor and torturing in the Chinese labor camp. He currently resides in Wynwood, PA with his wife and daughter.

July 19th 2022 Court Leader's Advantage Podcast Episode Bail Reform has been praised as an effective way to correct a societal wrong. The movement's byword has been “bail does not keep the most dangerous in jail: it keeps the poorest.” Despite this argument, Bail Reform is receiving increasing pushback. Bail Reform aims to curb or eliminate cash bail for people who are in jail awaiting trial and charged with either misdemeanors or nonviolent offenses. Bail Reform releases many of these vulnerable low-income defendants from pretrial incarceration. It allows them to return to their homes, to go back to their to families, and to keep their jobs. It also saves taxes by managing jail populations. Jail is by far the most expensive way to deal with defendants. A national average puts keeping a defendant in jail at $391 a day; in contrast probation on average costs $121 a day. Here are just a few recent examples of the pushback: · Progressive San Francisco prosecutor Chesa Boudin, who supported Bail Reform has been recalled · Progressive Los Angeles prosecutor George Gascon is facing a recall. · Judges in Chicago have been blamed for releasing defendants on electronic ankle monitors who then go out and commit violent crimes, · New York City Mayor Eric Adams blames rising crime in his city partially on judges who are not keeping dangerous criminals in jail. Some pundits believe that voters are tired of being afraid: afraid of rising crime, afraid of the homeless, and afraid that courts, under Bail Reform, let dangerous criminals out to threaten their communities. Some of the topics we will explore today include: · What is the current situation on Bail Reform? · What should be the courts' position regarding Bail Reform? · What should courts be doing right now? Today's Panel · The Honorable Edward Spillane is the Presiding Judge of the Municipal Court in College Station, Texas. He has served in this position since May 2002. Prior to this, he served as an Assistant District Attorney for Brazos County for eight years and as an associate for the law firm Fulbright & Jaworski for two years. Judge Spillane received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University, and his law degree from the University of Chicago. · The Honorable Paul C. Farr is the Judge with the Herriman and Alta Municipal Courts in Salt Lake County, Utah. Judge Farr graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU in 1999 and has been a member of the Utah State Bar for 21 years. He has been a municipal court judge for the past 11 years. He is also a member of the Utah Judicial Council and has been serving in that capacity for the past 5 years.

In this week's news episode, Florian and Anna catch up on a month's worth of news, with RSI receiving a lot of opposition. First, there was a UN Today article where interpreters pushed back on poor sound quality and unreliable audio levels causing hearing problems. Then interpreters went on strike at the EU Parliament after negotiations seeking improved work conditions failed. Anna talks about Meta AI's “breakthrough” claim in machine translation with the release of the I/O model called No Language Left Behind (NLLB). NLLB is an open-source machine translation model with 54 billion parameters and focuses on 200 low-resource languages, specifically from Africa and Asia.In media localization, ZOO Digital released full-year results for 2022 which saw revenue grow by 78% from the previous year, and growth into the current year driven by the ongoing territory launches of major streaming platforms.Keywords Studios' interest in the space has become more apparent as CFO, John Hauck, shares the game localization provider's plans to expand into adjacent markets and move more heavily into film and TV.The duo also discuss the launch of Zoom's translation feature. Business users can now have their Zoom meetings translated in real-time into and out of English from any of 10 languages. Anna then covers Disney's experimentation with synthesized voices. The company partnered with voice-cloning startup Respeecher to feature a synthetic voice in The Mandalorian miniseries.
Have you ever been brutally honest with a coworker or an employee? Or do you tend to sugarcoat difficult conversations like a Starbucks Triple Caramel Frappuccino with whipped cream and sprinkles? For today's episode we tackle the concepts of brutal honesty, radical transparency, and radical candor. We do a deep dive into what they really mean, where they came from, which leaders implement them “correctly”, and what type of outcome they lead to.

COVID cases in Commonwealth continue to be prevalent with BA.5 wave The Virginia Department of Health reports another 2,132 new cases of COVID today as measured through the PCR tests conducted in health-care settings. The seven-day average of positive tests is now at 23 percent. “We are seeing quite a lot of community transmission of COVID-19,” said Dr. Patrick Jackson is an infectious disease expert at the University of Virginia Health System. “The numbers listed, the number of infections in the community, are going to be artificially low because so many people are doing hometesting and those don’t get into that pot.” Dr. Jackson said this is a similar pattern to what was seen during the early days of the Omicron wave last fall. He said what’s known as the BA.5 variant is not leading to as many hospitalizations or deaths. “It is encouraging that the numbers of bad outcomes don’t seem to be going up nearly as we’ve seen in previous waves,” Dr. Jackson said. “So this does look to be another period of time in which many people will become infected with COVID-19, become symptomatic with COVID-19, but probably would not expect to see another big wave of hospitalizations or deaths from this virus.” Dr. Jackson said it still makes sense for people to try to avoid the virus by getting boosted and by wearing masks while indoors, especially if you are immunocompromised. “If you’re going to be masking, I certainly would use a high-quality mask to try to get as much benefit out of that as possible,” Dr. Jackson said. “No face in making your face warm to no good end.” For more information on vaccinations and boosters, visit the Blue Ridge Health District’s website.University Gardens slated for demolitionAn apartment complex on U.S. 29 built in 1948 and owned by the University of Virginia since the early 1960’s will be torn down rather than renovated.“The University Gardens buildings have reached the end of their useful life and UVA Housing and Residence Life (HRL) has determined the best course of action is demolition since maintenance and operating expenses have escalated to a level where continued operation is no longer economically viable,” reads a fact-sheet for the development.Necessary repairs included upgrades to electric systems, roof replacements, and HVAC improvements. A plan to demolish the structures will be presented to the Board of Visitors in September. Demolition would take place early next year and the space will be converted to parking. “There are no immediate plans for redevelopment at this time,” the fact-sheet continues. The Board of Visitors’ next regular meeting is scheduled for September 15. Albemarle Fire Rescue hires Charlottesville veteran for new deputy chief There’s a new deputy chief of community risk and resilience at Albemarle County Fire Rescue. Emily Pelliccia was named to the position earlier this month after serving 28 years with the Charlottesville Fire Department. "Deputy Chief Pelliccia has a proven track record of success in establishing collaborative relationships with government officials, businesses, and community members that will be vital as our department grows to meet the needs and challenges of the developing community we serve,” said Albemarle County Fire Rescue Chief Dan Eggleston in a news release. Pelliccia began her career as a volunteer with the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad. According to the release, she has served as “Firefighter, EMT, Captain, Battalion Chief, Deputy Chief, Emergency Manager, Hazmat Technician, SWAT Paramedic, and Health & Wellness Director.”In the new position, Pelliccia will oversee the Fire Marshals’ Office and Community Engagement. She’s been in the new role since June 21. Sister Cities Commission funded sound project debutsCharlottesville’s Sister Cities Commission exists to encourage cultural exchanges between our portion of the 38th parallel with four communities across the globe. Or five, if you count Pleven, Bulgaria.One of the communities is Poggio a Caiano in Italy, and yesterday a new audio piece funded by a grant from the Sister Cities Commission debuted. Charlottesville musicians Wes Swing and Kelley Libby traveled to Poggio this March to record sounds and local music. The result is a 32 minute piece called Storie Musicali, Italian for Musical Stories. The work also includes songs and sounds recorded in Charlottesville, and the two are blended together into one soundscape.

Louisa Supervisors briefed on Regional Hazardous Mitigation Plan, push back on incomplete dataThe Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission continues work on a document that’s intended to coordinate regional responses to natural disasters and other calamities. Ian Baxter of the TJPDC presented to the Louisa Board of Supervisors last week. (read the draft plan)“So the plan itself is essentially to prepare for natural disasters,” Baxter said. “We’re lookint to reduce loss of life, property damage, and disruption of commerce. I think I should reiterate before I get into the weeds, so we’re serving the six localities that comprise the Planning District.” Baxter initially said such plans were required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a condition of eligibility for some of its grant programs, but he would later clarify that information after the meeting. More on that below. Baxter said the plan is based on an analysis of the most likely disasters. The categories of Hurricanes/highwind/windstorms, flooding, and winter storms all rank as the highest probabilities for this region.Before Baxter’s presentation, several members of the public complained about a flooding problem in the town of Louisa. One Supervisors noted there were specific mitigations for each locality, but wondered how that might apply to an ongoing situation.“What does this document do for us?” asked Supervisor R.T. “Toni” Williams o“That’s a great question,” Baxter said. “The action items sort of serve as a base for what localities might engage in. These are aspirational. They’re not tied to implementing all of these mitigation action items. What it does for you is give you a good blueprint for what you can hope to accomplish over the next five years.” Baxter said having the plan in place would allow federal funding to flow after a disaster. Williams was skeptical of this approach. “It gives us access to funding after said disasters happen,” Williams said. “Because we have a mitigation plan. Just because we have one. We don’t have to do anything with it. It just sat on the shelf and because we spent money creating a plan, that gives us access to mitigation funds after a disaster happens. That just seems totally backwards to me.” Williams said he was not interested in what plans are for other communities in the area, but wanted to know what it could do for Louisa. Supervisor Bill Adams said he was concerned about data from the National Climate Data Center on page H-14 that summarizes the number of floods since 2010 and the amount of damages reported. Albemarle reported $50,000 whereas Greene reported $4.777 million. “And most other counties didn’t report anything,” Adams said. “We just heard people here talking about…. Mrs. Woolfork was talking about the $25,000 to their driveway, I’ve been to their house, I know their driveway, and I know the culverts they’re talking about replacing. It says here this data came from the National Climate Data Center. Obviously it’s not complete. Where do they get their data?”Baxter said he did not know where the data came from, but that the TJPDC relies on the data coming from the federal government. Williams said he wanted a work group to be convened of Louisa officials including town officials to see if they can mitigate flooding on a specific portion of Beaver Creek. “In my mind that would be money well spent with the TJPDC,” Williams said. The working group will be formed and the draft plan will return to the Board. Baxter sent an email sent to Louisa Supervisors after the meeting to clarify something in his presentation. I misspoke when I described what the hazard mitigation plan provides eligibility for in terms of mitigation grants. In fact, a variety of pre-disaster grants are open to localities that adopt a Hazard Mitigation Plan, and most post-disaster eligibility is not contingent on the adoption of a plan (so, the County would still be eligible for disaster relief even without an adopted plan).

Bei der koordinierten Terrorserie islamistischer Terroristen auf das Bataclan, das Stade de France und mehrere Bars wurden im November 2015 insgesamt 130 Menschen getötet und fast 700 Personen verletzt. Über sechseinhalb Jahre später endet in Paris heute der Prozess gegen 14 mutmaßliche Mittäter. Im Nachrichtenpodcast erklärt Frankreich-Korrespondentin Annika Joeres, wie die Taten und der lange Prozess das Land verändert haben. Und warum der Prozess so besonders war, weil die Opfer, nicht die Täter, im Mittelpunkt des Verfahrens standen. In einer gemeinsamen Recherche haben mehrere Medien eine perfide Strategie griechischer Grenzschützer aufgedeckt: Diese sollen Flüchtende die Wahl gelassen haben, sie entweder bei illegalen Pushbacks zu unterstützen oder wegen angeblichen Menschenschmuggels jahrelang ins Gefängnis zu müssen. Ein Syrer berichtet etwa, er habe unter Zwang Kinder und Frauen in Schlauchbooten über den Grenzfluss Evros zurück in die Türkei gebracht. Franziska Grillmeier, Reporterin mit dem Schwerpunkt Migration in Griechenland, erklärt, warum Pushbacks zwar lange bekannt sind, aber nicht konsequent verhindert werden und warum es überhaupt besonders ist, dass über Pushbacks wie diesen berichtet werden kann. Und sonst so? Lange Sommer mit Jan Ullrich. Moderation und Produktion: Fabian Scheler Redaktion: Jannis Carmesin Mitarbeit: Alma Dewerny, Christina Felschen Fragen, Kritik, Anregungen?
