Germany Expected To Put Right-Wing AfD Under Surveillance For Violating Constitution
"Now where the government is expected to put the country's largest right wing opposition party under surveillance. This means several dozen politicians in Germany's parliament may soon be monitored for racist and other unconstitutional behaviors that threatened Germany's political system. NPR's Rob Schmitz reports in German. It's called the For fasting shits. If you translate the name literally, it's called agency for the protection of the Constitution. Melania Moniz Berlin bureau chief of the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel, She says the fall fashion shoots is on the lookout for potential threats to Germany's democratic constitutional system. This agency has the power and not only to do surveillance on fringe groups, domestic terrorists threats, but also to keep an eye on any Political institution like a political party. The driving force behind the creation of the agency and its surveillance powers were the American led allied forces who after World War two helped write a new German constitution with an eye towards preventing the return of Nazi ideology. That's why the very first article of the Constitution guarantees the right to human dignity. And now the fall fashion shoots is on the verge of making an unprecedented move, placing Germany's largest right wing opposition party, the alternative fur Deutschland, or a F D. Under surveillance for violating that very article of the Constitution. This comes nearly a year after a far right faction of the F D, known as their flu eagle was put under surveillance by the for fashion shoots for the same reasons. A man who has written a book about the FD says In its report, The agency provided examples of politicians denigrating Muslim migrants to Germany, for example, they were all treated as potential terrorists. They were the humanized the speeches they were compared to animals. A hefty politicians also trivialized Germany's Nazi past. You know it. Because I'm sick of flip of age. Speaking at an FD event in 2017, the leader of the feudal faction beyond Hecker, called the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. A monument of shame, I believe a finder. It was a year later, a FD parliamentary leader Alexander Gallant, like in Germany's Nazi era to a speck of bird droppings, and more than 1000 years of what he called successful German history. Women. I'm sure really, I ft off wonders of all off. If you look at how the FDA has been behaving for some time Now it's clear. It's acting against our democracy and our constitution. Social Democrat parliamentarian Thomas Hitler is a member of the committee that keeps checks on Germany's intelligence agencies. He says. The for fashion shoots has spent two years gathering evidence that'll inform their decision to put the FT under watch but FT politician New York that Starsky says the agency is run by Angela Merkel's government staffed with members of her CDU party. He says the CTU is worried about how fast the FDA has become a presence in Germany's parliament. The party now has 88 members in the Bundestag. If you have no opposition party, which is very successful within very short time, and we become a danger for the ruling party's, especially for the conservative CTU, and this is the reason by they are trying to stigmatize us. Really to put us in the Nancy corner and also to spread wrong rumors. But Social Democrat Hitler says the process is not political, and its findings must withstand legal scrutiny. You got Bestwick states. There are 50, often under different conditions, Wife reported decision must be so watertight legally that it will stand up in the courts. The FT have legal recourse to contest the decision. And the agency isn't about to lose face in court with the poor case. A hefty politician Hans Meyer, already under surveillance for being part of the far right, Floegel Wing, told NPR by email. He's worried that civil servants like police officers will cancel their membership out of fear of losing their jobs. Well the for fashion shoots is able to tap phones and use informants to gather information on whomever it monitors. Meyer says he hasn't noticed the surveillance whenever Germany announces its decision. The FDA is expected to file lawsuit challenging it and that may take years to resolve. Rob

Trump’s social media bans are raising new questions on tech regulation
"We've all heard the news This week, Some of Silicon Valley's social media giants have given President Trump the boot the moves by the likes of Twitter and Facebook and sparked a global conversation about who has the right to regulate speech and what role the big tech platforms should play in policing the Web. Rose. Lydia Manta leader covers technology for the show and joins me to talk through all this little you've been following some of the reactions to the trump banned by several social media platforms. What are you saying? Yes. Oh, Marco's you might imagine there's been a wide range of reactions to this. Some people are applauding the social media platforms for banning Trump, even though they say this should have happened long ago and then others have some reservations. So, for example, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the span problematic that it should be up to legislators of a country to decide how speech is regulated. This is a critique that we heard from officials in the UK as well as France, this idea that In a democracy. There should be clear laws and regulations around acceptable speech online and that these decisions should not be left up to tech CEOs. I mean, even here in the U. S air our conceptual limits to free speech, the classic formula of not shouting fire in a crowded theater, for example, But it is really complicated. How do other democracies regulate? What ends up on social media in the U. S. Because of US laws, social media platforms air basically immune from being held legally responsible for what users post online. But that's not the case in other parts of the world, like in Europe and Germany, in particular, leads the way on legislation that cracks down on certain types of online speech. So in 2017, they passed this law that basically says That social media companies have 24 hours to remove hate speech or face huge fines. And now lawmakers in Germany are looking at what happened in the U. S on Capitol Hill last week and saying This is a reason why we need to strengthen this law. How would they strengthen it? Basically, they want social media companies to be required to when they see cases of hate speech and other criminal activity on their platforms to take that straight to the federal police in Germany so they can investigate. This is something German lawmakers were debating, adding to the law last year. It didn't pass because of privacy concerns. But it's interesting that now because of what Happened in the U. S. Some lawmakers in Germany are saying look clearly more needs to be done to deal with online speech before it escalates to real world physical violence. So going back of that German law you mentioned the one that was passed in 2017. What is deemed illegal denying the Holocaust hate speech against minorities. And these are things that Germany outlawed after World War two. And since 2017. They've applied these rules online to France. Also tried to pass a similar law last year, cracking down on some of the same things, but that was overturned by the courts there, interestingly enough because of free speech concerns, So that's one criticism of this kind of legislation. And then another criticism is that it deals with very narrowly defined hate speech, and not with things like disinformation, conspiracy theories, all the kind of problematic stuff that experts say helped lead to the capital Riot. Last week, right? That kind of disinformation conspiracy there. So what our country's doing to tackle that that seems to be really fundamental. Just last month, the European Commission came out with what's been described as a landmark set of proposals to require social media companies not just to do more to address hate speech and disinformation, but also to be much more transparent about what they're actually doing to deal with some of that in their platforms. Now they're years away from actually becoming law and being enforced. And until then, Ah, lot of this policing is going to be left up to the private companies themselves to do even in Europe, which again is considered to be well ahead of the U. S. Clearly something the U. S is going to have to take a lot more seriously. The world's Lydia Manta leader. Thank you very much. You're welcome, Marco.
Interview with Kristin Musselman about Reactive Balance
"Welcome to discuss. Discussions and spinal cord injury sci where we bring you interviews with researchers and clinical leaders in spinal cord injury rehabilitation. I'm rachel tappin. today. I'll be speaking with dr kristen muscleman who is last author on a recent paper in the journal spinal cord along with co co-authors. Catherine chan jaywalking less journal. Unger angela you and k musani the papers titled reactive stepping after a forward fall in people living with incomplete spinal cord injury or disease. Dr muscleman is a physical therapist and scientists with the neural engineering and therapeutics team at the cato institute which is the research arm of the toronto rehabilitation institute. She's assistant professor in the department of physical therapy and rehabilitation sciences institute at university of toronto. She's active in the canadian physiotherapy association and now of course and the american physical therapy association with this very podcast. And she's academic lead of the walking measures group and the canadian community of practice for the practice spinal cord institute so welcome. Kristen muscleman. thanks rachel so much for having me. It's a pleasure to be here. I'm so happy to have you so. Let's start by talking about balance after spinal cord injury and i wanna talk about reactive balance in particular where the person needs to recover from a loss of balance. Can you just describe for us in general. What do we know. Or i guess. More specifically what did we know prior to this to this study in this area. Sure well react to balance. It's a key part of our posture control system. And as you kind of mentioned it really is our last line of defense against a fall so to try to recover balance that's been lost and so refers to our ability to reduce control of The movement of our center of mass where or to pull our center of mass back within our basis support and we we can do this through movement at the ankles hips. You know which we've Often called the ankle hit strategies or you can do it by taking Rapid reactive steps to try to increase our base of support. And it's this Rapid reactor stepping that. We've focused on in our research and you know surprisingly we actually don't know that much about reactive balance control after spinal cord injury We do know that. In other neurological populations like individuals living with the effects of stroke. The inability to take a reactive step is associated with the occurrence of falls And as many of those listening are aware people cred injury. Do you have a lot of falls as well. So a recent meta analysis found that seventy eight percent of the ambulance chasers with spinal cord. Injury will fall each year so it's definitely reasonable to expect that reactive balance control is impaired after injury but specifically what aspects are impaired wasn't known for example are there deficits related to the timing of the movements and muscle activation or insider their spatial deficits. So you know for example. Maybe they can't take a big enough react to step to appropriately reposition their center of mass. So those are some of the questions that we had. I'm going into doing this research. Great boy and i can certainly point to as a clinician. You're supporting things that i felt like. I knew already as i would experience that in the clinic of people having lots of difficulty with reactive balance after spinal cord injury and looking to the research literature and really having a hard time understanding how to proceed so for reinforcing or validating. The experience that i've had at least you study your your group did the study. And so what did you do. And what were the results. Yes what we wanted to do was to characterize reactive stepping in and people who are living with incomplete spinal cord injury so as a first step We compared their to stepping ability to out of age and sex matched individuals who have a spinal cord injury and what we decided to do in this for study is focus on two aspects of reactor stepping so i is is a behavioral response which just simply looks at. How are the participants recovering their balance after appreciation. So can they take a single step like most people who haven't neurological damage do or do they need to take several steps to reposition that center of mass in their basis support or are they unable to recover their balanced. So that's the behavioral piece that we looked at And then the second piece we looked at were these temporal parameters of reactive stepping so this includes things like the onset of muscle activity and legs And also the reaction time so you know. How quickly can they respond for that. We look at the length of time. Between the onset of the nation and then the actual movement That's elicited so in this case you know lifting off the switch a reactive step but what we needed to figure out how to look at this behavior in a standardized way and so we use a lot based assessment That's called the released test And this has been used with the stroke population it's also been used previously in older adults And basically what it does it simulates a forward fall of course in a safe way so if you just try to picture yourself standing and you're in a safety harness that's gonna prevent us from from hitting the ground if you were to lose your balance That saves you harnesses around your trunk. And then what we do. Is we attach a horizontal cable to the back of the safety harness right around the level of your lower back and then not cable which is about a meter long. It's attached to the wall behind you and you get asked to lean forward from your ankles as best as you can until about. Ten percent of your body weight is supported by that cable.

Author Angela Chen Discuss her book 'Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex'
"And what. I really liked about this book because i think a sexuality something that's so unexplored culturally. It's just it's it's it's such a service to the book and also the community and yourself it's written both in a way that feels journalistic but also that feels inviting. How intentional was that. That feels like that must have been pretty intentional. It was intentional but it was also uncomfortable. So i told me more in my day job. I'm actually science and tech journalist. I do one health. I do a lot of stuff on. Ai and you know is going to take over the world and replace us you know that. Gonna stop which. There's just not a lot of room for personal narrative where you're writing about a i like it that way you know. I liked being a journalist. I like talking to other people telling their stories. So when i spilled the book i knew that it would have to be personal because it was important to me that a sexual person write this book. And if you're going to have an author you might as well use that experience. And i could be a guide of sorts people reading the book but it didn't come naturally to me because i'm not a culture reporter general or a sexual relationships reporter and i kept asking myself. Why are you doing this. This is totally a different part of your career. Even now people will be like. Are you going to buy a sexuality and unlike navy but maybe just continue writing about at so it really felt like while this was obviously an enormous privilege and honor to be able to write this book it felt like it was a necessity because it's not where my natural inclinations go toward. Okay well then. I guess my first question is are the machines taking over and when and who is the most important savior of our time. Is it sarah connor in actuality. This is actually very complicated question. I think they're not taking over yet. I'm much about climate change. That's talk on my mind but you know lots of smart people working on this smart well-funded people so hopefully we can. Hopefully that helps you sleep at night. I mean what helps me. Sleep at night is watching the terminator franchise so versions a bit of a catch. Twenty two the moment then that you decided that this was important enough for you to like break that membrane between what. You're more comfortable in like what was there a particular impetus for that or was it a sort of slow burning. This story needs to be told eventually kind of thing. I think it came out of this feeling in patients you know. I think it's like i think many of us have this experience. Maybe when you're younger and you discover like a new tv show or something and then you just wanna talk to everyone about it and then after a while whenever you're explaining something have to take like the first twenty minutes to this is the tv show here the characters and then you're like can i tell you my very and it kind of felt like that like my relationship with is action was like that. I didn't realize i was ace until i was in my twenties and realizing it. I had to go digging for it. I didn't have to go anywhere back. When i thought i was just straight woman. That was pretty much. You know what was expected of me. But i thought there were so many smart ways of thinking about the world is actual lines represented but you wouldn't have access to them because it wasn't in the culture to find any of that you'd have to be truly online in a way or you know have to rewrite academic books and so i kept trying to talk to people about you know the ways that it's actually makes everyone not just people who happened to be as like question like what is sex with sexual attraction. What is romantic attraction. How should we think about the world. But then i got tired of doing that. I lake tedtalk. Welcome to talk. Here's what it is. I wanted to skip that and get to the part where we are thinking about. What is that we all want. What what is pleasure. What if we center that their lives instead of sexuality and so i think that was the moment that feelings impatience that had so many people as or not would benefit from this perspective that i was like while. I am a journalist. I've always been a journalist. Maybe i should do this. While i have so many follow ups I want to talk about the this down. Because i want to talk about what. You're talking about about centering pleasure. I think that's really important

Is Optimism a Luxury Good?
"Angela. I'd like to ask you a question today. Sent in by listener named ben all right and this is about something that i feel. We've discussed on the show at least once or twice which is the power of optimism. I think it's safe to say that. You and i are both all things considered optimistic people. Yes so in a way benz question is a challenge to that which i like he writes. How do you square the benefits of with the harsh realities. That might make any reasonable person. A pessimist so look. I think this is a great question. A couple of levels. I think we should appeal it by first asking about the supposed benefits of optimism as ben puts it. Wasn't you first house. What litter tries to say about that. So optimism can be defined in different ways but the way that is often defined is the tendency to look for in a way biased by information. That things are going to get better and that you can make them better and the benefits are enormous. And i wanna say ubiquitous just in the sense that when you think about all the possible life outcomes like doing well at work making more money living longer having more friends being happier. These are all koretz of optimism. So first of all. I have to say your claim about. The benefits of optimism sounds really enthusiastic. Like optimistically enthusiastic. Tuesday sounds like you say. They are enormous and ubiquitous. But when i look into the literature which you know much better than i. Here's one paper. I see optimism is associated with exceptional longevity in two epidemiologic cohorts of men and women. So that sounds good. But then i read a little bit of it. It makes the claim that optimistic people have reduced risk for cardiovascular disease mortality compared with their less optimistic peers but to me this sounds like potentially classic example of correlation without causality. It could be that the same behaviors that result in or drive optimism. Also result in dr healthy behaviors. It could be that healthier. People have more reason to be optimistic. Because they're healthy. Yeah the causal arrow could go the other way like. Wow your life is great. No wonder you're an optimist so persuade me some of those correlates for some of the outcomes of optimism. Get into the causal. Okay and let me also say even that when i say enormous i mean you can't take back enormous. You said it. I might need to take back. Are you gonna take back ubiquitous to now. I'm going to go with ubiquitous. Let's leave that one but you know. Listeners should know that nothing predicts anything with truly norm or enormous food. Life is complicated right so relatively speaking these effects are really impressive. But i don't want to exaggerate too much there. Okay so first. Let me just say you're right. Correlation is not causation. Can you say that again. Look you have a point. I'm going to back down from that too. It's quite obvious that the causal aero could go the opposite way. You're having a great life therefore you're optimistic. It's also possible that some third variable like being rich or something drives it. But here's some evidence to suggest that the causal arrow is also from optimism to outcomes one example. Is that when you look at the relationship to an optimism and health outcomes one reason that we think that this is really optimists doing something differently. Is that when you actually measure. How physically active. They use to be what they eat whether they smoke. It turns out that optimist tend to engage in healthy behaviors. So optimism can drive behaviors that have better health outcomes. That's still correlation evidence by the way it's just that it's a little more of a satisfying story. It is satisfying and one can imagine the mechanism by which that's true. One can say. If i feel like the activity that i do is going to have a real result like feel optimistic about my leverage their then i'm probably more likely to do as opposed to. I can do this all day long. It's not gonna help. Yeah like my life is terrible and it's not gonna change. I'll stay in bed and smoke the cigarette. Let's flip it for a second and talk about what the listener ben wrote in about the harsh realities of life. That would make any reasonable person a pessimist. This calls to mind a famous. Ish story called the stockdale paradox. You familiar with this. Just vaguely admiral. James stockdale when he was in captivity in vietnam. I think in the famous hanoi hilton which was not a hotel by the way it was prison. That the american prisoners called the hanoi hilton. He was years later. Asked what he had learned from that experience about dealing with helplessness and torture and imprisonment. He said i can tell you who didn't survive. It was the optimists and his argument. Was that the optimist. Felt like oh. We're going to be out by christmas. And then chris would come and go and you were now and as he put it they died of a broken heart which i think is probably not exactly what happened. False hope right. And that's where. i think. This question is really interesting for all of us. Because i think these are natural tendency to reach for optimism but there should be a natural cautionary vibe against letting your optimism become delusion. I don't know the story very well. And certainly never interviewed stockdale. But i don't know that optimism. Like i know by christmas. Everyone's going to be vaccinated kind of optimism. I don't know that that's truly at the core of these findings. I think the best kind of optimism. Is you know what. There's gotta be something that i can do here. It's just that of all the things you could pay attention to. Should you pay attention to the things you can't control or should he try to pay attention to things that you can. So couple your optimism with agency. You're saying yeah in fact if you want to say that. Optimism of the a gigantic flavor is the optimism that angela duckworth really likes. That's the phrase was reaching for optimism of the genetic flavor. Yes i thought so.

How Much of Your Life Do You Actually Control?
"This question arose. When i was reading maria kovas new book. The biggest bluff so maria like you has a phd in psychology. But she's not an academic she's a writer and this book is about her quest to become a professional poker player starting from scratch so we made a freakonomics radio episode about her book. That was called how to make your own luck and really what. Maria is wrestling with throughout. That book is the relationship between luck and skill. She's doing it in the context of poker but it's easy to extrapolate into our daily lives. So here's the passage that made me think of you. There's an idea in psychology. She writes. I introduced by julian. Wrote her in nineteen sixty. Six called the locus of control when something happens in the external environment is it due to our own actions in other words skill or some outside factor. Chance people who have an internal locus of control tend to think that they affect outcomes often more than they actually do whereas people who have an external cause of control think that what they do doesn't matter too much events will be what they will be. Typically an internal locus will lead to greater success. People who think they control events are mentally healthier and tend to take more control over their fate so to speak. Meanwhile people with an external locus or more prone to depression and when it comes to work a more lackadaisical attitude so angela. My question has two parts one. Is it indeed. Better to generally have an internal locus of control as maria. Kind of cova rights. And if so if. I am more inclined toward the external if i tend to feel life as more happening to me rather than me making it happen. How can i shift to have a more internal locus of control. It's a great passage from a great book from a great author. So i'm glad to be asked this question i'm gonna throw in a bonus answer here. You didn't ask me if i had. An internal control of control is probably. I haven't internal locus control. and yes. it is generally a good thing. It correlates positively with just about every life outcome you can think of you know income and wellbeing not going to jail it cetera. I guess my suspicion the counter would be that. It might also correlate with things like arrogance and nurses system in other words no characteristic that we think of is unabated. Good all the time obviously well. You're right that it can't be a complete recipe for a good human and there might be instances in which it could be bad. I am not aware of a lot of research. On the downsides of internal control in my data when i measure things that are conceptually siblings two locus of control like growth mindset or self efficacy or optimism. I don't find negative correlations with good things now. That might be. Because i'm studying teenagers. And maybe i'm not measuring all the right outcomes. So i would have imagined that your answer would be something along the lines of well. Of course you want to have an internal locus of control when you're talking about things that you actually can control. But it's really really important to acknowledge that despite your best efforts or maybe despite your worst actions that there's going to be a lot of countervailing activity from institutions or societies systemic things other people and so on that you can't control so that's i guess the answer i was expecting to hear but it sounds like you're saying that the more internal you have at least for teenagers who you've studied the better. It is yes. Yeah i mean you asked me a really straightforward question which is what's the correlation is it positive is it negative and the answer is also simple which is a positive but i think we should move onto the more interesting question more than thinking about. What's the downside. I do think we should think like. Is it a fully accurate view of the world to think that you can control what happens to you or are people who are very aware of all the things like luck and social inequality and racism and the list goes on. Is that a more accurate view of the world. The idea of look control goes all the way back as you said to rotor in the sixty s when he was developing this idea it was really on the heels of behaviorisms where the idea that you would even have any thoughts in your head expectations about the future. That didn't really matter because we are basically all just animals responding and very mechanical ways to stimuli punishments rewards etc is really true as recently as the nineteen sixties. You're saying that was the standard scoop thought. Well certainly the early twentieth century was definitely behavior ism and it was pretty dominant. And that's why when you have a psychologist like rotor. And then also like alexandra. Who is still with us. He's in his nineties and stanford he has a very similar idea. Called self efficacy. They wanted to make the point that people are not just lab rats responding to rewards and punishments. They are thinking and they're projecting into the future and wondering if i do this is going to pay off. And so it really was a conception of human nature which was much more genetic having agency and having free will and having an influence on your future as opposed to just when environment does this. I do that. That's not just like stimulus response.
In Michigan, Some Are Being Asked To Do Own Contact Tracing
"Health departments in Michigan are so overrun with covert 19 cases that they're asking people to do their own contact tracing Brett Dahlberg reports. There are similar do it yourself public health efforts taking place across the country. Contact tracers in Washington County arm or slammed than they've ever been. There's just so many more people that are gathering and then are exposed. Madeline back Allure is a contact tracer for the county, which includes an armor, so it used to be. You know, we'd have a case and maybe that person had seen two people and now it's a whole classroom full of daycare students or it's a whole workplace. Contact traces get in touch with anyone who's been exposed to a person who tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Racers. Tell those people about their exposure and walk them through how to quarantine. I call people who have been exposed but who don't have symptoms yet. On dry to keep them away from healthy people who have not been exposed. But the number of exposures is piling up faster than contact tracers can make those calls. And recently, the federal government shortened the recommended quarantine period from 14 days to 10 days. But in Michigan that only applies to some people in some counties, and now they have to explain that too. Yeah, it makes things more confusing. Not only that, but they're making twice as many calls as they did earlier this year, so the Health Department has tried to shorten the time that they spend talking with Cove in 19 patients by getting rid of some interview questions. They're sacrificing information for speed, but they're still not able to keep up. And that's true in hard hit places across the country from Virginia to Oregon on the brink of being overwhelmed. Local public health departments have been forced to try something new. They're asking people to basically do their own contact. Tracing Susan Ringler Cerniglia is the spokesperson for the Wash, not County Health Department in Michigan. She says people who test positive for the virus should start telling their contacts right away. Basically, you know what to do. Don't wait for us to call you because the department can't call everyone. Ringler Cerniglia says they're prioritizing calls. People like the county's oldest residents, those living in nursing homes and people who live in ZIP codes with the highest infection rates, But that means some people outside of those groups won't get calls at all. Public health professor Angela Beck says. That kind of prioritization is a good response to a bad situation. It is a last resort tool. It's not the ideal scenario. Is it better than nothing? Yes, I think it is back is an expert on public health work forces at the University of Michigan, she says. Cutting back on contact Tracing calls means health officials will miss information on where outbreaks are happening and who's at risk. The lose chances to break transmission chains and slow the virus is spread, Beck says. Without enough contact tracers to track the virus at an individual level. The only option left to contain it is a generalized approach. That's part of what's pushing governments toward really broad restrictions, like shutting down into our dining and requiring schools to go online. She says This failure was predictable, the result of years of poor funding of health departments. The chronic under investments in the public health infrastructure in our country has really cost us during covert 19. We can see the consequences very clearly back, and public health officials still want people to focus on the basics like masks and physical distance. And they still want you to answer contact Tracing calls. Just don't be surprised if the person who calls to say you've been exposed is a friend or relative
Dr Fata: Seeing Yellow | 4
"Patty hester was helping a patient at work in the emergency room on the morning of august. Sixth two thousand thirteen. It was busy morning. Her colleague came in the room with a patient and tapped patty on the shoulder. Come here right now come here. I'm rock with her towards break room i to have time what she said. Patti catch your doctor. Patty walked into the break room and stared at the tv quote. We are michigan. Hematology oncology here in rochester hills. Were fbi agents are executing our search warrant. My sources are also telling me that a doctor has been arrested on charges related to healthcare fraud s fbi helicopters. They swarmed in on this morning. And i'm looking at this news. It has named goes across then. Then i have my cell phone in my pocket. and it's like this. you can feel it vibrating. All my dad from that point on her cell phone wouldn't stop buzzing all day. One call was from the fbi. You'll be getting your chart than the news. Said we'd like to interview you. Patty went home. Her husband was in front of the tv. Federal agents say in court records that doctor for allegedly kept patients on chemotherapy. Longer than necessary to cash in on the billings agents allege for da also directed that patients be diagnosed with cancer in their medical charts. Even when they did not have the disease patty wondered. Was she one of them. She didn't have to wait long to find out the next day a dark. Suv with tinted windows. Pulled into the driveway. An agent stepped out of the car and patty opened the door. Her whole family behind her. He said i'm very sorry and handed me my chart in the disk. I just sir cry. My family sobbing sobbing. It was horrific. She put the disk into her computer and began to scroll through. It was just lie after lie after lie. The also gave her a list of oncologist that she could see to get a second opinion. Ten days later patty saw a new doctor for the first time she brought with her. The disc at the fbi had given her. After the dr ransome tests she came into patties exam room hugging. And i am so sorry and saw sorry. You don't have it you don't have a patty began to cry. Her doctor said that she wasn't yet sure what had made her sick in the first place but she was sure that patti didn't have cancer. You need to live your life. You need to live your life. You not gonna die. I said if you do anything for me could you just please write it down town. She's forty where you want me to write it. And so she whipped out a prescription pad. And that's when she wrote a tricia has has no evidence and diaz in the weeks that followed other fatah patients or their loved ones sought their medical records. Saint joseph mercy. Oakland hospital filled these requests free of charge but crittenden had a different policy in some cases. The hospital asked for more than a thousand dollars to fill. The requests fought. Victims protested outside the hospital eventually crittenden relented and waive the fees but the victims and their families still needed someone who knew the technical lingo to look over the records. That's what i did for my fun. Time in the evenings nurse angeles won tek. I would go through the patient's medical records in a way. I feel like for me anytime. Somebody reached out to me. I said yes i didn't. I felt that that was something that i could do. And maybe you know. Help with the guilt of i should have done more. I wish i could have done more. One of those requests came from michelle mannarino. Her mother joan had died in two thousand ten six months. After angela's visit fatah had treated joan for breast cancer but when they met at a hotel in a banquet room angela had some news from michelle. And i remember looking at her records and the chemotherapy and i remember one thing that struck me was one of chemotherapy. Drugs that she was given is typically given for colon cancer. And i thought with this is odd like why would you give this for a breast cancer diagnosis.
"angela open" Discussed on Revisionist History
"The front door altered. Thank our hero. Angela nation and her mysterious sidekick ingrid. James are brilliant. Scientists on the faculty of the medical center at emory university hence the title druid hills. That's the neighborhood in atlanta where emory is. Now you may have noticed that. Emory university is the sponsor of this bonus episode of revisionist history. Emory came to us asked if they could talk about some of the work they've been doing during the pandemic and it's super interesting as you'll hear in a moment but the offer made me happy for selfish reasons. As well. the first time. I went to atlanta. Not thirty years ago was to visit marine. I was the science reporter back then for the washington post. And if you write about american medicine you eventually make the pilgrimage to emery. Emery obsessed with atlanta might disaster of a screenplay was a medical mystery set at emory. I mean what are the odds. How often does live come together. So beautifully and serendipitous -ly under the sacred umbrella other the four zero four area code so here we are revisionist history bonus holiday atlanta addition part. One all right before we go any further. I want to explain why. Emory is such a magical place for people interested in medicine. Healthcare has been part of annmarie since the campus moved from a small town east of atlanta to to atlanta In about nineteen fifteen and at that point The atlanta medical college became part of emory university's school of medicine. This is greg fenders the university's president a decade. Or so after that. One of the the most important benefactors for emory university. Robert w woodruff. He's the coca cola guy right. He is the The legendary Ceo of coca cola. But mr woodruff. As we call them here at emory loved the rural areas in his ranch and south georgia. Malaria was a huge problem. And so georgia as a state was one of the leaders in developing treatments for malaria and early early part of the twentieth century years later after world war two Mr woodruff was very good friends with dwight d eisenhower. Malaria had been a big problem in world war. Two that eisenhower had had to deal with and so the federal government wanted to establish a research center to solve malaria treat. Malaria prevent malaria. And mr woodward through his friendship with president. Eisenhower had it located on emory property which became the center for disease control and prevention That is now not only across the street. It's actually on the emory campus. And so that relationship between Ameri it's school of madison and focus on affection diseases and the cdc has been very very close since world. War two one of the heroes of the aids epidemic. Was jim curran. Head of the city. See in the nineteen eighties. He's now the dean of the public health school at emory. Emory was where one of the most important drugs against. Hiv amtra was discovered when the american medical workers who had fallen ill with a bola in africa. A few years ago came home to be treated. Would they go emory. Because emory was one of the few places set up in this country to treat them tucked away in druid hills is a really remarkable place that played a key role in our understanding of infectious diseases. For seventy five years which is something to be great before especially now. My favorite part of emory is the yorkies national primate research center one of the oldest and biggest non human research centers in the country three thousand non human primates and eight thousand rodents. Eight thousand. Do you know what the plot my screenplay was our hero. Angela was testing an experimental. Drug for huntington's disease on a specially engineered strain of mice created by her boss rogin at the yorkie center. The whole story was about mice and this angela opens adjoining gore is where rajon keeps his mice in metal cages. We mouse after mouse. Dozens of them moving like old men. Rajon huntington's mice. The air is filled with the sound feeble squeaks. Rajon is much better with mice than people if there is anyone out there in land to his interested in a screenplay about two black women from atlanta trying to cure a deadly disease co starring a room full of specially engineered lab mice at the yerkes center. Coming let's make this happen okay. Time listener mailbag ryan m asks. If you could have dinner with any three people from history. Who would they be. And why i think it would be my great grandmother's i only met one of them. Martha nation a very regal jamaican lady. Who when she died in her late nineties. Had just a few strands of gray hair. She was the embodiment of black. Don't crack but i never met the other three. How great would that be. Here's a comment from a listener on itunes dc commute you know. Read the comments. Right dc commute says. I think you should revisit. The obscure virus club season four episode ten. The recent success of vaccine development stands on the shoulders of giants. This is actually a great point and it deserves a long answer obscure virus club. If you haven't listened to it was about a small group of biologist who spent years and years in scientific wilderness studying a group of weird animal viruses. That no one else thought were even remotely meaningful. They were ridiculed ostracized then one day. All those naysayers woke up and realized. Oh the work. These people were doing often. Shadows is going to save the world and if you wanna know how the obscure virus club saved. The world. have to listen to the episode. Because i don't want to give away the ending. The point of the episode was. That's how science works. Everything important and beautiful begins years and years earlier with someone's quixotic and so thanks for your comment. Dc commute. this is absolutely the case with covid vaccine as well. There are countless examples. But since telling emory stories let me pick one from one of their scientists. A guy named rama amara who is so obscure virus glove in his case. His obsession was with something called the m. v. vaccine. This is a vaccine made from the pox virus family. A version of it has been used as a vaccine against smallpox. It's been tweaked so that it can't cause disease anymore because it still resembles something menacing. The immune system goes on high alert. The minute it comes across it and the theory that scientists like amara had was if you tinkered with mba and customized it you could produce an immune response against other deadly infectious diseases. I was working on to work closest vaccines and i used to go to. Tv sanatoria to collect samples from tb patients. that's when i started seeing Hiv infection. That's amara so then. Uh i dial up. Interest in also developing hiv vaccine. That's how i came to emory to work. On that problem he moves to atlanta to emory. And just to put this in perspective. He moves to atlanta in the year. Two thousand so for twenty years. His lab works on the problem. Learning everything they can. About how this particular vaccine emory mba interacts with the body's immune system. You've been working on this vaccine for this model for twenty years as yet nothing had reached the market. We did you get discouraged. Did you wonder whether.
