was the goober that she order south carolina state representative stuff rose a co-sponsor of a bill named after joe simpson that would require ride sharing vehicles to have an illuminated company provided sign to help verify their authenticity he told reporters this could happen anywhere and it really exposes the dangers of ride sharing i live with my wife and three kids a fourth of a mile from the curb samantha was picked up from. in fact a two thousand and eighteen c.n.n. report found that out of the one hundred three hoover drivers and eighteen lip drivers had actually been accused of sexual assault or abuse or abuse despite both companies claim the efforts of background checks and passenger safety you see this is the dark side of the ride sharing culture and the rise of the gig economy as a whole see my friends despite the ease and technological convenience all these riot apps food apps and dating apps bring us we cannot forget the real world dangers that can come from putting our safety in the hands of strangers. so how can
we balance our safety with our need for fingertip convenience let us find out by watching the whole. world. that the threat was real that this would. be a liar. out of. the day like you got. this week. with. the. world watching the hawks i am very robust and on top of the wallace this week marks the twentieth anniversary of the columbine school shooting i want many mark the anniversary with solemn remembrance and mourning for the twelve students killed on the fateful spring day in one thousand nine hundred nine one eighteen year old
woman sold pas from florida sent us law enforcement into a frenzy of reports surfaced on tuesday that her obsession with the tragic massacre might have reached dangerous proportions after authorities discovered she had traveled to denver colorado and was considered armed and dangerous after half a million students were kept home from school on wednesday in the denver area pas was discovered dead from an apparent suicide r t america's ashley banks has more. already say sold high is the subject of a massive manhunt is now dead the woman was found dead with a self-inflicted gun moon now the echo lake campground near mt advents pieties was considered to be armed and dangerous after purchasing a shotgun and ammunition upon her arrival in denver on monday authorities say the eighteen year old was known to have an infatuation with a columbine shootings and trouble from miami to denver earlier this week law enforcement was alerted when the teen's parents reported her missing authorities say she pose a serious threat to the jefferson county community so much so that denver area
schools are. on lockdown today as law enforcement both miami and denver search for the teen you know the f.b.i. got involved and made contact with the jefferson county sheriff's department after parties made undisclosed threats toward the county school system and o'clock this morning our agency was notified of a f.b.i. investigation that was going on. there were threats made toward the school system in jefferson county and at about twelve twelve fifteen about two dozen schools were placed on lockout once paez arrived in denver authorities started tracking her whereabouts we identified that she departed the airport and went to a store where she did procure a weapon she obtained a pump action shotgun and ammunition. she was then taken to an area where she was last seen out towards the foothills. and we have been
trying to find her ever since at this time the f.b.i. says an investigation is under way reporting in the newsroom ashley banks are t.v. . very interesting events surrounding the anniversary of columbine but as a start of tab we were talking about live in are just ride sharing apps and you know we see no murder you see rape you see your salt even in the last few weeks every city when you do the research you know a smorgasbord of numbers and statistics showing that it's not as safe as people might think while traveling and miller traveling by you know driving alone as a human being is is often unsafe however what you see is a lot of women it's mostly women who are sold out it's mostly women who are raped in these situations is not just these are seen as sort of weak and vulnerable i would like you said when you when you put alcohol in there. any kind of you know mind altering substance people would take offense because they have the advantage
and that. that thing now the issue that happened with in north carolina was she got into a car that she didn't it wasn't over it wasn't a left it wasn't a ride sharing car it was just a car sitting there which is why i think a lot of people at home when you use ride sharing say it's a lot of that you know a lot of the safety things they say always it tells you the license plate check the license plate ask for their name don't tell them your name don't say you're for tabitha you're here for tyrrell say what's your name check the license plate and say what's your name because every one of those apps tells you that check it and don't let your friends go into getting into stuff or cabs like that you can this is what there's a lot of technology that you can share your pen with someone you know when somebody and let them know it may seem weird but these are the situations rico to watch out for yourself you've got to watch out for your friends because there are predators out there you see it you know they will i mean think about the scenario you're taught as you laid out you talk about it let's say just as the scenario i laid out
earlier talk a bunch of people leaving a club you know something let nature and then you know everything's great little tipsy you hanging out big crowd of people because usually the clubs you know they push everybody out the moment reptar last call right now it's a big big crowd of people it's easy for a predator to slip his car in there which is from what i understand pretty close to what happened to this poor woman in carolina and you don't know because how many people i've seen it how many people just jump in without a shadow about it without one to the wrong one i've done it you know where you jump in and then suddenly halfway to really wait no this isn't the right direction we're going to turn this around know your surroundings now we're going to where they're taking you because even though you know just you have to be aware of your side because i think we get very loud into a sense of security because we have an app we have a phone you know there's people around in a car but that's that is where your seat you sort of bends and you have to be aware of and you know i think one that roger and companies are very well regulated for
this. you know anybody who's going to be able to get one of these signs i think you need more than that you need to have better background checks you need to have a better accounting of people and actions and they're not great about answering but any writer is not super great about answering responses to complain oh no and you know it's interesting to me too was that when you're talking about the bill that came forth from this poor woman it's ok they all the drivers have to carry a lighted sign and i'm going way well yeah that's a taxicab. you know if there's a certain point we're like the rules and regulations that we have in place for taxis eventually it's going to kind of lead in order for because a lot of those rules regulations with taxes were put in place for what is a security for these so you could trust the car you're getting into right. and left at all then came along and said hey you know man we're we're you know thrown out the old rules of taxis everyone's to share and it's a good economy. and i also wonder you have we have to look at forward as not only
the liability of the company but the big liability of drivers what happens if two people get in your car you give them a ride and one of them assaults the other one i mean there's all these questions about how they work who is responsible and in a very litigious society that we have it's going to be more complicated and there's a lot of alternatives that are sort of popping up i think that's important there's one coming out of boston called safer. our look them up because they're. sharing service that's focused on empowerment of women so it's all female drivers off of my writers and. i feel like things like that are really important there has to be this thing where you know if you go to a massage therapist you can ask for a male or female if i go to my doctor i can ask if i want to call doctor's office a gynecologist i'm asked to do would you like a male or female and the thing is you can't do that you don't have that option with lifts where some of these things like safer and boston these companies have that
built and this is important i don't care i'm a customer i have money to spend for and over i want it to be say exactly and look you know we also go to this isn't just a problem for ride sharing because now that we have the economy where you know the thing where i can type into my phone and i give food right away i can get groceries delivered the dog walker i get old you are going to clean my house i can find it but you know. we're giving out a lot of our information to strangers yes for convenience whether it's a day or a housecleaner or die. walker or an over and think we all just i think we're better connected with the world around us and people we would probably be better but i would say be very careful when you're getting and ride a license plate ask them for their name and not tell them what you are says or that and let someone know where you're going at all times brilliant brilliant way to keep say good all right as we go to as we go to break auk watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we cover to facebook and twitter your full shows that are coming up we look at the prize the big black maternity caucus on
capitol hill and its fight against the epidemic of child health care issues facing black women the united states and then we discover just tuesday and they. wonder if i'm still a bit late to watch. the activity known as journalism is under assault and it didn't start with the trials of julian assange and wiki leaks once it was so noble to report on the ferry a psychic bodies of those in power now it is being criminalized free speech is now the privileged few. or my body told me that i'm the one with the boys but my thoughts my mind with
and then i'm along with the girls. under the surgery starts to be a very popular. football person dr. i was born a male and a sex change when i was thirty years old. i've now been living as a woman for twenty eight years and i fully recurrent this. problem should have gone away from me by now but they hadn't so these. surgeries are nothing more than plastic surgery i've had several female to male friends and you look at it it's just going oh god you paid for that it's horrible nobody can change genders it's impossible. is delusional it's a mental illness. this is now one of my bones and flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman for she was taken.
with this manufacture consent to public will. when the really close to some project themselves. in the middle of the room sick. really. really really. according to data from the centers for disease control and infant death records from two thousand and seven to two thousand and thirteen infants born to black mothers are more than twice as likely to die before their first birthday as infants
born to white mothers those rates hold true across all education levels from a ph d. to less than an eighth grade education black women are also three to four times more likely than white women to die during childbirth in the united states twelve times more likely in new york city racism is also a factor but not the overt kind so many of us are used to looking out for a twenty sixteen study by the university of virginia researchers. that white medical students and residents often believed by a lot of biological myths about racial differences in patients including that black patients have less sensitive nerve endings and thicker skin than their white counterparts was because of this that the reid term u.s. congresswoman representative alma adams and freshman representative lauren under what announced this week the launch of the black maternal health caucus formed in partnership with the black mommas matter a lion's to address the issues head on with over fifty founding members the caucus
looks to advance our legislation at the federal level which is already shown momentum with over eighty bills already introduced addressing infant and maternal mortality joining us now to help us better understand both the causes and how to help is the director of midwifery community of hope family health and birth center avenue marcella thank you so much for joining us happening or. incredibly incredibly important topic and i want to start and it shocked me but another good start a lot of people realize that until two thousand and eighteen the united states had the worst maternal death rate of any other development issues in fact u.s. infant mortality rates are said to be seventy one percent higher than in comparable countries and they are getting worse i have to ask you how did childbirth become so dangerous in the united states well that's a loaded question. well i think it's a whole bunch of different systems issues and failures and also
a lack of acknowledgement and awareness about institutionalized systematic reeses and how that please factor in birth. i don't think it's just one small thing i think it's a whole bunch of small things add all together to make a big bomb and it's concerning and look at you you know most people don't even know that their rates are that bad or that these disparities actually exist it's sort of shocking because i mean i grew up in a fairly poor community and. it never was an issue the idea that there is an infant mortality rate that that women could die in childbirth in my forty years on this earth it isn't until the last few years that this issue is come up and in such a drastic way when you look at the numbers white women experience twelve point seven deaths per one hundred thousand live births you look at that number in the uk that the black women america it's forty three point five. it's not
a little bit and i'm going to ask you a question as as a midwife and i ask you a question the privacy of the answers here is there any physical difference between black women and white women that would make any scientific reasons for a disparity in infant mortality or maternal mortality absolutely we could have the larger conversation about chronic stress weathering those are not new theories we've known about this for decades they've been looking at research since the sixty's trying to rule out risk factors for education marriage. crispy haber smoking and we all know that that doesn't really make a difference so i say that to say there's a difference in the sense that we are predisposed through racism chronic stress weathering to more vascular disorders such as diabetes hypertension and that also plays out in the birth world with pre-term birth. you know it's interesting too is
a child that was introducing this that you're still seeing in two thousand and sixteen. you know doctors who believe that there's some you know physical difference in strength and things of that nature the little black skin is harder to pierce with a needle that's ridiculous to me that even today you see that kind of a life threatening to me and i thought it was life threatening and carry out just even things like believing that african-americans have a higher pain tolerance and are less likely to get pain medication and more than likely they're seen as drug seeking it's scary. to think that this is a reality but it is and that just shows us how embedded it is in our healthcare system true do you think that somewhat has it what has helped us as a special over the last year or so we've seen people like serina lambs come out and talk about how hard it was for her and you think about that and the idea of a woman who is one of the greatest at most i say the greatest i'm alive right now and. just look at that one that someone's about level is still when they walk into
their very expensive hospital to their very expensive moment and say give birth there still question is is it do we see over all that women because i feel women when it comes to our own reproductive health we are often question and doctor's office is that an overarching problem with black and white women and how do we address that in a way what i think we need to work on our training systems and how we're educating folks to become providers definitely i feel like black women there's there's tons actually of tons of research looking at studies listening to black women and they're saying they're not being listened to and the same case with serena williams like she kept asking the nurse and telling the nurse when she felt like she needed it but of course she wasn't believed that's just a small example of the many examples and especially when you take away the money the social economic the education background q. imagine how hard it is for a woman to navigate the system that is what i want to ask you to do but there's
another factor of the u.s. health care system that's always go to my. insurance and studies have shown that black women who are uninsured before pregnancy are slower to start prenatal care or more likely to lose coverage after giving birth which is a pretty important time to be able to have coverage as a how much does insurance coverage factor into the kind of care a woman receives or think she can afford to see will that limits her options i think with medicaid and specifically you know definitely she. he's going to have more options for educational settings hospitals but we need medicaid to actually cover more out of hospital birth and we're having conversations about trauma and folks how they're trying to navigate the systems they need to be able to have out of hospital birth options like birth centers home birth but most medicaid coverage in the most states will not cover it that's very interesting because the truth is most people midwifery is what you went through most and up until until some time
after world war two and a lot of countries in here you gave birth at home you had a midwife or you maybe have a doctor coming by giving birth in a hospital wasn't the norm what how do you feel that taking away about personal world lead as if women don't know how to take care of birth themselves autonomy they don't have bodily autonomy and that's the issue and we're looking for autonomy we're looking for respect we're looking to be listened to and you know that whole saga includes the eradication of the granny midwife and the introduction of hospitals public health nursing and so i think that as we go back to that and as we start to appreciate current models black women lead initiatives or even you know i tell people all the time i channel my own ancestral granny midwives when i'm caring for women we're looking to empower women create better health literacy help them
navigate the systems provide better care port mission and support and i feel like there's definitely more movements towards that. you know we're seeing this kind of debate going right now between you know government run single payer source was medicine and you know good there's still the kind of the health care of the world and right now in the united states which is you know all capitalism raised in insurance coverage what do you feel is better in the long run in your experience for. the. health care of a child being born. in the job that you do i mean if you look at overseas most women when they engage in prenatal care they go directly to a midway we need a better collaborative system to where midwives and physicians enter great beautifully to where out of hospital birth providers and midwives are able to transfer him integrate well with physician backups and that physicians are able to be surgeons and care for high risk women we need a better integration of the system some of that has to do with bad legislation and
before we run out of time i want to get that so the black maternal health caucus their point is still a focus more on that legislation more of those things is there anywhere from your experience where does the legislation is that a regulation issue because we're seeing more and more. legislation that is meant to curb say abortion or meant to curbs funding for something but it actually makes it harder for midwives to do their job is there something in legislation that week that legislators need to focus absolutely supervisory language that's written around the different pathways of midwifery and just thinking about there's actually research that shows the states that have better regulation of midwives have better birth outcomes and the states that have the most restrictions have worse outcomes so midwifery is relationship based care and especially dealing with women with higher risk factors or not medically but socially fast the type of care that they need what do you think when we look at the women behind me taking on this mantle
and going into congress what do you think there will be able to provide and what do you think is next for them which we look for from the black maternal health caucus i don't know but i'm excited. i was actually there when they announced it with black mommas matter alliance i'm just hoping that this problem is finally getting addressed like for somebody like me or most people in the childbirth or birth community this isn't new we've known this it just have. and gotten the direct attention that it's getting right now what do you think that is what do you think it is that's made a sort of i mean i know there's a lot of fictional t.v. shows around this that have sort of open people's eyes and more people are looking to being a more natural. way to give birth without all that because we've been filled with a bunch of it first it was gas then it was drugs then it was you know epidurals and everything else and the things you need what do you think we can look at and see
that really is helping us. for women to better empower themselves about their own child birth of their own why i feel like educated women are finding the ways to access that type of care it's the on educated or less educated or. lower socioeconomic background or challenge with having access to that care you know we have about over three hundred birth centers and a lot of them do not accept medicaid there are a lot of home birth practices that cannot afford to take medicaid we need to find a way to create these options because out of hospital birth can be transformative. and as you said trauma before in i don't want to stop is that it can be a very traumatic experience the idea of being intimate i've i've been in rooms of women giving birth in hospitals and it's it's traumatizing to watch i mean you're it's very it's just close to torture and i mean i mean it's literally scary there's big sometimes legs are up things are there and there's just people yelling and
masks and it's not and it's scary for me i can't imagine we're somewhere where for a woman who's having given birth there's alternatives you know i can be sent to hospital midwives also deliver we say catch and most of the time i'm not ground up i don't deliver any position she can stand she's can squat we are the specialists and laboring moms who choose not to have a medication i don't i thank you for that work because it's really important and i think this is why when we sort of go away from care and patient care that cares about the patient and really puts that first this is when you end up with issues like infant mortality and thank you so much for doing thank you absolutely great work and putting so much of it was. around six thousand b.c. a group of migrants landed in britain with the gift of farming and according to the data research it looks like those migrants were part of the group that built stonehenge the migration began in what is now turkey and greece moving its way
north. to lands inhabited by a small portion of hunter gatherers who did not interbreed with the new arrivals the migraine and migrants farmers brought the skills of farming with them as they move across britain and then europe and found a hospitable home for themselves in the north which explains their penchant for building megaliths like stonehenge across the atlantic coast in addition it looks like the people who would eventually build stone hedge took the more complicated and dangerous the land to grout rather than a much shorter english channel i want to say here is to migration because it looks like without it places like britain wouldn't have them a british monument. to the graves and gentlemen about is our show for you today remember of the world we're not told we're above the stuff so i tell you well i love you i am i will have capital i keep on watching all those hawks out there at the great pyramid. thanks
thanks. thanks thanks. thanks thanks thanks. thanks thank you. we came here where did you work before you came here when you live. in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor of the death penalty there are some people because of what they did have given up the right to live among us some even proven innocent of two years on death
row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about. you know we talk from time to time about the casino. the trend in technology and government to enslave the global population behind devices and to be consigned to life and clicking on ads for scooby snacks and the second you stop clicking on those ads you die and you get to the platform get off the grid and. just pay so send in the chrome to carry cash or. even should just have to keep it as i live the he didn't feel confident.
need no. need to. be young. again. we have many things in this world this isn't enough for everyone and why some people's wants to take our things. all the power just for themselves and to see whether you may. join me every. time i'm sure i'll be speaking to the world of politics. i'm sure i'll see you then.
