"Women, young women and girls to be leaders. How do you envision? We continue to do that? Oh, they already are. You know, one of the things that we're gonna do, Um, later today at the I Ws International Women's Day program is here from women and girls across Atlanta. I am more hopeful. Than ever. You know, I was 2018. I was one of the plaintiffs in the voters. Depression case when? When Stacey Abrams lost, we won the federal Case, but we we lost and I remember people saying, Oh, she just, You know, she's in over her head. She doesn't understand the dynamics. She can't make it happen and I'll never forget Stacey Abrams said. We did not lose. We did not lose. We did not lose. And she was projecting this image that has as an African American women deeply connected to my my ancestors. To my mother, my aunties, my nieces and all these other women. I immediately understood what she was saying, like There was just a listening there. Where she was saying it may look like we have lost this battle. But we will win the war and who knew that we'd be sitting here in 2021? She'd be a Nobel Peace Prize on nominee and she'd have turned out. More people to vote in the state and in historic election and then got him to come back for a month off. So when I look at examples like that, and Stacey Abrams is young, she's in her early forties. When I look at her and I see all of the young women around her. And when I talk to my colleagues in South Africa and in Zambia and in New Delhi in India, and they know Stacey Abrams says, I am incredibly hopeful because Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum. You cannot deny that these air these air the voices that have not been heard that we need to hear now and that need to be You know, welcome and included at every table. So I'm more hopeful when I look at these young sisters and brothers and women at that Spelman College and Agnes Scott College on the global stage on the national stage. They are incredible and I am more hopeful than ever. With this year's theme of Choose to challenge you and I both know Sometimes there is a different I don't wanna put this. There's a different reaction and perception to women in leadership roles. That could be based along the lines of race. And ethnicity. Absolutely. When we talk about choose to challenge and you equate that to leadership. What do you tell young girls are other women about this road if they want to become a leader? Yeah, I mean these air true facts. These air are real facts we know for we have data that you know, people look at someone's name and make largely negative assessments and categorizations about a person. We know that when a woman of color walks into the room, she is immediately Demoted in the minds of many we know that she works harder on Dad has to produce more to get even minimal pay. We know that the numbers around pay equity For men and women is is unequal and that if you're a woman of color, if you're black women are Hispanic women. It's even worse s so again daunting data. When it comes but very daunting data when it comes to what what women have access to and how they're treated in our society. And again, I'm more hopeful than ever. I just look at you know, I'm 46 I look at when I went to college versus what I see young women going to college today and But they won't stand for what they speak up for what they advocate for what they have the X expectation for so I don't I don't ever try Tonto. Tell young women what they should be doing or how they should be doing it. I think that they are expressing themselves when I think of people like Amanda Borman, who spoke with the inauguration, and I mean she just completely you know, in such a global and universal way, gave hope she doesn't need mentoring for me. She's amazing, E. I want her to mentor me without So I'm actually incredibly hopeful that young women are forging the way and innovating ways not just about Sort of succeeding and traditional environments that we know we're not built to support us and to nurture us academia, jobs, etcetera, but they're creating environments and creating lives that work for them where they can succeed and thrive and not just get by. So Again. Update. I'm very very hopeful. Will that be part of your message today? It. Will we have some of the best and brightest women in and around Atlanta and the country that are going to speak Pearl Klieg Who's an amazing playwright and best selling author, We have the folks who who understand and know the data like people like Taifa Butler, who's the president and CEO of the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, who can really Do a deep dive on the data. For women and girls in Georgia. We have our hometown heroes like Dr Beverly Tatum, president emeritus of Spelman College. We have Michelle Nunn, who's one of our leading practitioners, implementing programs here and abroad for women and girls and poverty alleviation and supporting women and economic development and educational advancement, so well, this will be the topic throughout the day. We will share the data so that people are great. Wounded. In fact, on Ben, we'll also share what we're doing Things like maternal mortality, which is on the rise in the United States and the highest Increased has been here in Georgia. But you know this conversation around the increase of maternal mortality or women die in childbirth, or postpartum is acute here in Georgia, but it's also a cute in India. And in Zambia and in Mali and Mauritanian. So so these these global bees, global issues are in fact global right there here in America, but they're also in other countries, and we'll talk to the practitioners who are solving for them, who are looking for ways to alleviate and overcome and transform these really These issues that have been intractable for four years before we end our conversation..

"In 19 awaits. Ed, however, continued his education as intended, and in 1930, he and George earned their bachelor's degrees in engineering. George continued on and received his master's degree. But as the conflict overseas continued to grow, he saw an opportunity to put his education and his mettle to the test. After leaving school. He enlisted in war war two and joined the crew of a B 17 bomber flying a dozen missions with England's eighth Air Force. Once the war was over, George met and fell in love with a young woman by the name of Ramona Cartwrights, who had attended Agnes Scott College only 20 minutes away from his almond mater. Their engagement was announced in 1958 in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, newspaper and 50. Years later, the public radio program, a Prairie Home companion, celebrated their anniversary live on the air. George pursued his dreams. Even after he'd settled down. He joined Mad magazine as a member of its board of directors in 1969 and maintained his position there until 1981. In 2001 Time magazine nearly chose him to be their person of the year, although he lost to Rudy Giuliani following the attacks of September 11th. However, despite these amazing achievements, George never forgot his home and his home never forgot him. Georgia Tech is so proud of its accomplished alumnus. It even named a store in the campus student center. What else? Yet no one has ever seen George paper down. There are no photos, no videos nor any eyewitness testimony as to his identity or whereabouts in 2015 President Barack Obama gave a speech at Georgia Tech. Joke that Mister Bird L was supposed to introduce him, but he was nowhere to be found. The students laughed, of course, but not because they knew where he was. Rather they knew that he was never going to come. George P. Bird L accomplished Georgia Tech Alum World War two veteran and former Mad magazine board member. Never existed. He was the creation of Ed Smith back in 1927 after Ed had received two enrollment forms to the university by mistake. He was going to enroll his high school principal as a joke, but at the last minute decided to change the last name to bird L. His best friend's mother's maiden name. The prank took off in ways that even surprised Ed. His friends all participated, doing George's assignments and changing the answers just enough to keep teachers from looking too closely. George Bird. L was listed in the official register as a graduate of Georgia Tech, and as his classmates started getting drafted into the second World War, they took their fake friend with them. They added his name to the roster on numerous fronts until fellow Georgia Tech alums noticed his name and had him removed and even after he had officially graduated freshman at the school continued to enroll him for classes every year to the point where it became sort of a tradition. George's name has appeared in the liner notes of rock albums In the signature line of a check from Kraft Foods and even on credit cards, George had become the biggest celebrity. Almost nobody ever heard of bird. L's legacy has lasted almost a century, and there's no reason why it wouldn't last another 100 years beyond. After all, George eventually had a son. George P. Burned down junior He can be found teaching several classes. At Georgia Tech, of course. John Cameron's in professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, once said, when you pay attention to boredom, it's incredibly interesting.

The The psychiatric ward. Was she interviews? Yes. Was literally across the street from my college, like, Thank the actual Yes. So people will go in front and take a picture. And the is weird place because the psychiatric ward I mean, was the psychiatric ward of the hospital, right? But they had a nine hole golf course there that you could play anybody or do people there was anybody. Yeah, that was really It was really cheap, too, is like Oh, you want to play it the way you played at the psych ward. I mean, yeah. You might get killed or something They didn't have, like the patients be caddies or anything like that. But But that was the one tourist attraction where people would go back with silence of the Lambs. The hospital boa 4487207 51 800 WSB talk.

"And is is closed as well. Maybe you've seen the video of little kids like this girl in England having a meltdown because the pandemic has closed down their favorite restaurants. Ligo two eight Mommy's cookie now. Oh. Sorry Suray. My personal favorite is an American girl in despair because she can't go to McDonalds or places where they have toys in candy, the videos are funny, but it's heartbreaking to see little ones in this deep despair that may also reflect fear about parents jobs, pandemic protests while educators worry about kids physical health when schools open our next guest asks. What about their Mental Health Dr Mariam Jernigan? Not is a psychologist, a teacher at Agnes Scott College in Decatur Georgia dodger. Jennifer knows he welcome. Thank you for having me. What can parents do with this kind of despair now? It's really about being patient listening to them encouraging them to express themselves in the moment, he child may want to start crying, but in addition to that I think maybe offering arts and crafts, or especially for younger children they tend to communicate through their play, so you might read them books or encouraged them to play is really talk about how it is that they're feeling. That would be something that's really important in terms of monitoring, and then also responding to your child's mental health well, and that's what I loved about the video the parents. Go on, no kid your toys. Really quite something. They let her do it, but now everybody's saying it'll be better for the mental health of children if they can get back to what seen as normal schools so I think in the midst of a pandemic, the other thing to remember is that children may be returning to school with some uncertainty about whether or not. They will have to leave school again. So all schools have often served as a source of support and stability. We're in the middle of a time where we can't guarantee right that students who may be returning to in person learning. We'll have to then return home for a period of time if there is in fact, a second. Second Wave. They are coming back to school. Feeling very unstable this place once you know a place of stability. They've been detached from that which has affected their own attachment to both their educators and the school environment, and so it's not I think guaranteed that students will then you know sort of rush back into the school? It will be normal for them, and that that will then solve all of the issues or mental health concerns that certainly I'm thinking about as a licensed psychologist, there will also be adults in the building who may also experience anxiety? They may have children of their own, so the stability that wants was I. think it's important as As we think about the pandemic is being unprecedented, that applies. What do you have some specifics? I mean in Massachusetts their schools that have programs just for kids who have been through trauma so when they come back. They have mental health help. Absolutely I think we can a lot from the trauma informed Lens Trauma informed school really looks at. How do we create and cultivate an environment one of the tools for example that trauma informed providers use as calming trauma can lead to experiences of this organization something we refer to as our executive, functioning and our brains, which allows us to focus to organize things that we that children need for learning. It's about creating facilitating. Facilitating right away for children to be able to calm themselves so mindfulness for example which is deep breathing. What would it mean to just begin the school day to take a deep breath to teach children how to really notice what they are feeling in their bodies to really enhance their emotional intelligence. I've been really concerned about commentary that says you know children have so much. We've got to get back to the business of learning. The tools children need to learn may be disrupted at this time. Well, it's interesting. Some studies have come out. I think one from MIT concluding that in fact when kids go back to school, the school should lean on the arts. An art not prepare them for tests, but you said something else, which is interesting just really struck me. Breathing exercise. Maybe everybody sits around in a circle and breathes deeply. Find that that's so interesting. Considering kids who have been hearing, you know both people are sick and they can't breathe, and a man said can't breathe. And you know this is what they're carrying with them. So how do teachers for example Talk to younger children? I Robert have a four year old myself. My life partner before nap time in an effort to get him to calm down doesn't say we're going to do deep breathing exercises for example what he says. Is You know let's calm ourselves. Let's pretend that there's a birdie on your belly. If you can lie down on your blankie on the floor and really breathe in and let that. Birdie rise right leading off the BIRDIE comeback down. Cook Question. Should schools ask? Should they ask little kids circle? What has it been like for you or my might that be too painful for some kids? In fact, they know that their dad lost or mom lost a job war. They lost relative to Cova. Or. They're afraid. Maybe they're afraid to go back to school. Afraid they're gonNA. Catch the TH. I mean they've been told they can't go out. Think children are honest. Right? You've we sort of point to the The videos that you referenced earlier I would want to gauge. I would not expect all of my students to be able to contribute, but I certainly wouldn't want to deny them an opportunity to really speak about things that they've noticed and haven't had anyone else to talk about. And if I'm noticing that there's a child that is seems more distress I might reach out to school counselor. I might ask my student if they'd like maybe a time to check in with me.

Lauryn Boko bomb here student life at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta Known familiarly as Georgia tech is not for the delicate part or the week of mind. Tech is a serious school for serious students who take classes classes like competent orix deformed bodies quantum information and quantum computing and multi variable calculus that last one according to these catalog covers linear approximation. and Taylor's theorems lagrange multiples and constrained optimization multiple integration and vector analysis including the theorems of green gas and stokes which means a need a class just to understand what that class is about. But it's also in this place that the big hearted practical joker George urge paper. Del Lives and flourishes at Georgia tech where they nerd quotient admittedly and proudly high and that academic pressures absurdly higher. It's important important to have an alumnus like old George as a beacon. You See George has made it through Georgia tech and then some. The man is a practical legend around Georgia tech back. Check that George P del is in fact a literal legend at Georgia Tech. And that's where things get interesting. Let's take a step back for the past. Twenty five years Maryland. Summers has been running the Living History Program at Georgia tech designed to collect preserve and present stories of the institution which opened its doors to students in eighteen. Eighty eight summers has supervised for posterity more than one thousand one hundred on camera interviews with alumni and other people who have a connection to the school cool she said I learned something new about Georgia tech with every single interview. I do I know more about Georgia Tech than I do about myself and nobody but but nobody knows more about George P del than summer's The naturally reclusive Bedell summers says has several degrees from tech according to his resume. Summers ars has the diplomas to prove it fails I a bachelor of science. In general science was awarded in Nineteen thirty since then Berdahl has never strayed far from Tech Doc. According to summers he was registered for more than three thousand hours of classes in nineteen sixty nine and in one thousand nine hundred five registered for every class in the spring semester he. He was named a regents professor in nineteen seventy one. Throughout the years he's been named host of countless balls and dances on campus. He's evidently lettered in both football and basketball the ball. There was a time even recently when you couldn't find a petition at tech that didn't have George Bieber Dell's name on it outside of Tech. He was reportedly involved involved in several flight. Missions in World War Two ended the Korean War Vietnam Operation Desert Storm and in the conflicts in both Iraq and Afghanistan. His name has appeared on the membership membership rolls of just about every church synagogue in the greater Atlanta Metro area. He is such an outside legends now at sometimes dead serious tech that a story is told. Hold everyone who attends facet the orientation program for First Years Exchange and transfer students and their families. He has become at this point as much tradition as legend. It's probably important to point out here that George del technically was never alive. He Sprang into being as it were through the window of a real life student. William Gerber Ed Smith in Nineteen Twenty Seven Smith had an extra application for the school known then as the Georgia School of Technology and proceeded to fill it out with the name of his high school principal. A University of Georgia alum by the name of George vaginas Butler Smith wrote in the newspaper. The Atlanta Constitution Shen on September. Eleventh of nineteen seventy seven. Nothing could be more amusing than to register him as a tech freshman. But I lost my nerve after writing. George P and finished with rebel. Rebel was the maiden name of his best friend's mother and was also. It seems the name of the family cat. Smith's creation took all the classes is that Smith did with Smith and his friends who were in on the prank helping with homework and tests. Eventually Berdahl earned his first degree when Smith graduated in nineteen thirty the same year that George P earned that initial degree other students took up where Smith left off. George Paper Dell became part of Tech Lore and Legend Lives on when Summers tells the story of tech military alum returning bone tired from duty overseas. Who heard this welcome at the airport? Once he got home George PL rebel please contact the concierge. She has endless stories like that. George Pease been paged. In airports and restaurants sporting venues all over the world at the Nineteen ninety-one one Florida citrus bowl. In Orlando as tech was on. Its Way to winning.

New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was instead honored that year. Back in the Nineteen nineteen fifties a rumor circulated among Atlanta Institutes of higher education. That rebel was engaged and later married to one. Ramona Cartwright of nearby Agnes Scott College. The summer says the Union never took place. Not only because of Brazil's off engaged but never married reputation and other Moore Corp. reasons but because Ms Cartwright never ever existed either Georgia's name still finds its way onto wedding registers. All the time and whenever summers can get her way onto the guest books at the funerals of Georgia Tech Heck Lum's in this pressure packed school. Though the name Bedell is most synonymous with goodhearted mostly harmless pranks in.
