As It Happens: Tuesday Edition

Feb. 12, 2019


Part One

El Chapo verdict
After a trial that laid his legacy of brutality bare, Mexican drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán is found guilty in a New York court. 

Lawyer locker rooms
All lawyers at Ontario's highest court have to wear robes, but men get more than 5 times as many lockers as women — and our guest says it's time to change how she gets to change. 

Part Two

Measles outbreak
In the midst of a measles outbreak, residents of Washington state scramble to get their shots — and our guest is disappointed it took an emergency to get them to roll up their sleeves. 

Jody Wilson-Raybould resigns
Jody Wilson-Raybould resigns from cabinet — after allegations she was demoted for not yielding to pressure from the Prime Minister's Office. 

Part Three

Women in genetics
Two female scientists dig into the archives to find women in genetics whose contributions were not properly acknowledged — and those hidden figures weren't hard to spot.

Tiger found
The Houston animal shelter spokesperson says a tiger that was found living in a tiny cage is doing well — and is off to live in an animal sanctuary somewhere in Texas. 

New Zealand maps
When IKEA left New Zealand off a map, it wasn't the first time. Now, actor and comedian Rhys Darby — from "Flight of the Conchords" — wants the latitude, and longitude, to make sure it doesn't happen again.
