1:33 am
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 alone and miller traveling by you know driving alone as a human being is is often unsafe however what you see is is a lot of women it's mostly women who are sold out it's mostly women who are raped in these situations is raja's these are seen as sort of weak and vulnerable and 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 in 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. it wasn't a left it wasn't
1:34 am
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 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 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 to 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 rafter last call right now it's
1:35 am
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 a doubt one to the wrong one i've done it you know where you jump in and then suddenly halfway into a 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 safety 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 an axe. and they're not great about answering but any
1:36 am
writer is not super great about answering responses to complain though and you know it's interesting to me to do is 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 taxi cab you know is 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 and regulations with taxes were put in place for what is a security force of these so you could trust the car you're getting into and you know lifted all them 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 if you get on to me 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
1:37 am
a lot of alternatives that are sort of popping up i think that's important there's one coming out of boston called safer. a f r 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 ousted you would you like a male or female and the thing is you can't do that you don't have that option with her and lifts where some of these things like safer and boston these companies have that built and that's important i don't care i'm a customer i have money to spend for and over i wanted to be stay exactly and look and you know we also got to also pay attention to this isn't just a problem for ride sharing because now that we have the economy we're you know the
1:38 am
thing where i can type in the my phone and i give food right away i can get groceries delight a dog walker i don't get all of them are going to clean my house i can find it 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 a dog walker or and i 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 in right chairs text or license plate ask them for their name not tell them what your says or that and let someone know where you're going at all times brilliant brilliant way to keep so good all right as we go to as we go to break cock watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the property cover the facebook and twitter and your photos of our dot com coming up we look at the prize a big black maternity caucus on capitol hill exploiting against the epidemic of child health care issues facing black women the united states and when we discover just whose d.n.a. i wonder would still get to watch.
1:39 am
my body told me that i belong with the board if my thoughts my mind was and then along with the girls. under the surgery starts to be a very popular. football person's doctor. i was born a male had a sex change when i was thirty years old. i've now been living as a woman for twenty eight years and i fully regret this. problem should have gone away from by now but they hadn't so these surgeries are nothing more than plastic
1:40 am
surgery i've had several female to male friends and you look at it and you just go no god you paid for that it's horrible nobody can change genders is impossible. is delusional it's a mental illness. this is now one of my bone and flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman pushy was taken down from a. what is a bit coy and big point is the magic in a number the new type of digital currency essential digital scarcity chancellor i'm bringing a second bailout for a bank that's called that got us a lot for a reason to coining it still hopes will be a source of optimism because i can control my own financial destiny it's just a new way of coming to consensus it's

1:42 am
according to data from the centers for disease control and infant death records from two thousand and seven to twenty 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.
1:43 am
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 found that white medical students and residents often believed by a lot of the 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 reed 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 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
1:44 am
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 ave marcel thank you so much for joining us happening or. incredibly incredibly important topic and i want to start 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 developed may shoot in for us 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
1:45 am
think it's a whole bunch of small things add all together to make a big bomb and it's concerning and looking. you know most people don't even know that their rates are that bad or that these disparities actually exists 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
1:46 am
black women and white women that would make any scientific reason for a disparity in infant mortality or maternal mortality absolutely we could have a 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 to talk about 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
1:47 am
difference in strength from things of that nature of a 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 don't. gary and 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 imbedded it is in our health care system true do you think that somewhat has it what has helped us as especially 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 so that level is still when they walk into their very expensive hospital to their very expensive moment and say give birth
1:48 am
they're 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 doctors office apps 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 there's another factor of the us health care system a boots always go to market insurance and studies have shown that black women who
1:49 am
are uninsured before pregnancy are slower to start prenatal care are more what we'd lose coverage after giving birth which is a pretty important time to be able to have coverage is a fact. how much does insurance coverage factor into the kind of care woman receives or think she can afford to see well that limits her options i think with medicaid and specifically you know definitely she'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 made with free is what you went to 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
1:50 am
a midwife or you maybe have a doctor going to 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 tammie 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 poured mission and support and i feel like there's definitely more movement towards that. you know we're seeing this kind of
1:51 am
debate going right now between you know government run single payer social wasn't. and you know this you know because of the bell scare the we're in right now the united states which is all capitalism based insurance companies 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 midwife we need a better collaborative system to where midwives and physicians and a great beautifully to where out of hospital birth providers and midwives are able to transfer and integrate well with physician backup 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 up to the black maternal health caucus in
1:52 am
their place so a focus more on that legislation more of those things is there anywhere from your experience where does the legislation is it 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
1:53 am
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 hasn't gotten the direct attention that it's getting right now why do you think that is what do you think it is that's made us sort of i mean i know there's a lot of sectional 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 then 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
1:54 am
child birth in 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 less sort. lower socioeconomic background or challenge with having access to that care you know we have about over three hundred per 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 you know i want to stop as it can be a very traumatic experience the idea of being a man 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
1:55 am
hospital midwives deliver we say catch and most of the time i'm not ground up i don't deliver any position she can stand she can squat we are the specialists and laboring moms who choose not to have pain medication i don't know 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 it's thank you so much for going thank you absolutely great work and thank you so much it was. around six thousand b.c. a group of migrants landed in britain with a 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
1:56 am
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. selves 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 to the more complicated and dangerous atlanta grout rather than a much shorter english saddle i want to say here is to migration because it looks like without it places like britain wouldn't have them a british monument. with the graves and gentlemen about is our show for you today remember everyone in the world we're not told we're above the stuff so i tell you well i love you i am i will drive capital i keep on watching all those hawks out there are a great day and night. thank you thank you thank you.
1:57 am
thank you thank you. thank you thank. you thank you. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to start an open field where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people and i saw one off if you think. i'm going to talk about football not the moral thing to think i was going to do.
1:58 am
by the way ways of that slide here. bests drugs were cocaine as were four bucks for the under fifty. everybody use cocaine crack cocaine you can smoke it this is worth like fifteen thirty. twenty. came to this is about a fifteen dollars bet and people smoked this one bigger second sweetie you can find these drugs in any city in the united states that you walk along as you want to get about the. make money. and that's one of the every day. what do you do before you came here where did you work before you came here when you lived. death row in many us states capital punishment is still practiced
1:59 am
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. true but how many more tolerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about.
2:00 am
living. this morning to the headlines this morning a long awaited report into russian collusion is about. democrat. slammed by aid groups and congress refusing to end american support for the saudis that intervention in yemen coming up we hear what people in new york think of the president's veto. a lot of civil. war games that politicians say is terrible i'm against it. and indigenous people in australia's northern territory take anger over fracking on their land to parliament's doorstep. there's a hole right.
