Supervolcano Eruptions Aren't Single Events
"You study ones that civil kano eruptions on singular events but can continue with follow up last for thousands of years after the first eruption super volcanic eruptions are among the most catastrophic event in any planet's history then includes the earth they vet tremendous amounts of magma almost instantaneously they impact global climate here on earth that means triggering volcanic winter with abnormally cold temperatures causing widespread feminine population disruptions and e findings reported in the journal nature based on a study of volcanic debris from the turbo eruption indonesia. Seventy five thousand years ago. There's no other way to say it. Tober was the largest volcanic eruption in human history. It had a volcanic explosively index of eight the highest possible score on the chart. The volcanic explosively index is a lot of rhythmic scale for an eruption depend on how much welcoming materials thrown out to what hide it's thrown and how long the eruption lasts. Well people these days talk about events. Such as the famous eighteen eighty three eruption of krakatoa in the sunda strait between the islands of java and sumatra or more recently mount saint helens eruption in washington. State these with thousands of times smaller than tober. Thankfully super volcanoes like turbo. A few and far between the last was new. Zealand's taboo volcano. Some twenty eight thousand five hundred years ago. Should volcanoes often erupt several times with evils of tens of thousands of vs between bigger options. But it's not known what happens. During the dormant periods one of the study's authors associate professor martin denny shake from curtin. University says gani understanding of these lengthy dormant periods hope scientists workout.

What do you study my research areas. Congress daytime my machine learning and data analytics gender most specifically focused on forecasting demand focusing in retail and time series focused sich of sees. So the main pay for. I asked you on to discuss. Today is wire arena and serena or s arema not sufficient. You'd mentioned you have a good background in machine learning. I don't necessarily think of a reema as a machine learning technique. How do these two areas fit together in your mind. Actually because the site focused teams all problems and can be served by machinery and when the approached this focusing problem with fines and attorney time service models are very important solutions to forecast team problems. Other side focused is very important in today's areas because you're low many many data so always Focused in problem. We find penser is very important and we also find iron man. Sarah map and armagh.

That's going to be I guess my official title is. I'm an associate professor In the english department at usc. I've written often on popular culture Actually i started out as newsday's political cartoonist. And in there in one thousand nine hundred four. I published forever barbie the unauthorized biography of a real doll. Which did well in enabled me to leave the newspaper And of course the next woke followed logically from forever barbie. It was a cultural history of nasa's jet propulsion laboratory in a way though it is a book. End to forever barbie because forever. Barbie discussed the mid twentieth century. Construction of femininity more. Recently i wrote the accidental feminists tau elizabeth taylor raised our consciousness and we were too distracted by her beauty to notice.

"Which says that you know. You are not letting your mobility of chairman getting your way but unfortunately society causes you to be disabled when they don't accommodate you if there's no ramp to that building suddenly somebody who uses a wheelchair is a is disabled. If there's a ramp the disability goes away so that's the social model of disability if i all museums all performing spaces all film all television described as appropriate. Well in blind is not a disability one of the needs to be member iron very different channels and tasks so i to say hi to you and thank you for provides you do. We're doing so thank you for that. We have five minutes. I yeah so x ray. Justin new are up next wonderful. Great to be here with everybody again. And i've enjoyed the session. I wanna ask you know. There are ways in our society that we kind of have learned to value certain kinds of things in the media and particularly if we look at sports in announcing in an what sells the values of the people. Like we don't really see ever female sports announcers especially for a sport like football for example you might see color commentators or people down on the field something but not the actual announcers. We don't really see a lot of the the biggest media networks wanting to cover things like women's sports but also covering forceful of folks with disabilities like adaptive adaptive sports and wondering extends also. Tonight just sports but just news talks about disability in disability rights issues. And so what do you think. It's going to take to change the way that we function as a society and what we values news in the major media outlets start wanting to include more disability in their coverage earth. Will i think the as a professor of communication. I have a pet peeve. I hope you won't get angry with me for saying this. I don't like the word disability. Because it presupposes that there's ability and then there's those that don't have ish. I'm sorry most of the people. I know that are blind or death for in a wheelchair. Take just as much ability as i do. You have your just being. Xm by the very language that fish irony on that donna. Back in around nineteen eighty. There was a move this country to get rid of the word handicap and replace it with disability. Isn't that ironic. I now and we're still sorta not there yet. Let me just raise what justin was talking about. Though i just needed to get that out of disability. I think it was well intentioned but i think it's putting people in a little box. I'm not persuaded useful if we can frame the conversation differently because what you think about the other is often how you treat the other if that makes sense a lot of myths and stereotypes about the disabled show up as public policy so i think the first thing that needs to happen is we need to start taking a look at different experiences. Different people by promoting those people. There are really qualified folks out there but there's a tendency in every industry just round up. The usual suspects who of i had on his guests last week. I had on this. We like. I rarely see on any talk shows. And let me tell you. I'm talking television here. I rarely see anyone who's blind or deaf what they have no opinions of our politics really. But i suggest to you that there is a stereotype just like wyatt to so many years for black baseball games get broadcast. It was a stereotype of oh white. People wouldn't be interested that similarly so people that can say what people can't see..

Opportunities for Skillful Weather Prediction
"My name is elizabeth. Barnes i go by libby an associate professor in the department about miss science here at colorado state university. You told me a little bit. Broadly speaking about your interest research wise and things like that. I guess in broad terms. I'm a climate scientists. I've been studying. Climate dynamics that includes climate change but also the earth's climate as it is today as it wasn't in the past and really probably on this podcast but also might broad interest are in the data science side. So how do we use. Data and analysis tools be at statistics mathematics modeling to understand the system and all of the interacting pieces. Could you go into little depth about the data. You're interested in even what's available as most listeners. Do some data science. Maybe they're used to working on the internet where it's as easy as just tracking something but the earth has been leaving us clues for a while. What do you have access to to study specifically the part of atmospheric science i study. I'd like to say we actually really have data coming out our ears. We have so much data. That's not all good data but one of the reasons. I'm so excited about eight science machine. Learning techniques is how can we utilize the data that we have even when some of it. Maybe isn't perfect. For example we have in science in climate science. We have paleo record so ice cores that tell us what the climate looked like hundreds of thousands of years ago today satellites that are constantly there orbiting the earth or sitting still and staring at one place over and over again and they're pouring data in all of the time sometimes it's hard to just get data and process it once we have it than you know so we can do fun stuff just getting it into a processed form is a lot of work. We have climate model data so we have these big climate models that are being run on supercomputers all over the world to try to help us understand the climate system and they are out putting a lot of data in people need to look at it to try to answer and ask interesting questions about the our system and we have people here my department. I don't do this. Atmospheric scientists say with a weather balloon or radar and actually measuring thinking about the weather and the climate state. Right where you are.

What Happens to All the Stuff We Send Into Space?
"Since the launch of sputnik in nineteen fifty seven humans have been sending all sorts of things into space stuff like the serious eight and new satellite just launched by stitchers parent company or cargo space craft bringing supplies to space station's not to mention the most prising stuff like golden records or read tesla's an estimated thirty five thousand bits of Incentives right up to objects at the size of double decker buses up to of course international space station which is said to be the size of american football fields or five bedroom house. That's dr alice. Gorman associate professor at flinders university in south australia and one of the world's leading space archaeologists she studies all sorts of ways. Humans have engaged with space including these tens of thousands of objects rocketing around in earth orbit. And that's just stuff four inches and bigger there's believed to be millions of objects anything smaller than that. They distributed from lois little bit which is about two hundred kilometers above the surface of the us up to maybe about one thousand two thousand kilometers then. You have raged. That's just cold middle or medium business and then you get into. The high as obits. Miss includes Stationary orbit which is where bust of telecommunications satellites used to think of these orbits kind of like three lanes of a running track with satellites and spacecraft as the runners zipping around and around in their respective lanes. But note that for this analogy to work the track would be really really big and runners relatively teeny if we go out there and look at these might only say one object within your field. You so that impression. We have a stuff's closely packed together. Just together that's actually luck. Absolute worst case scenario. Which we're not at yet. There's growing concern about what will happen over. The next few decades as there are a lot of plans to launch way more stuff into orbit. And here's the thing. The vast vast majority of objects orbiting the planet is considered space junk.

How Could Lab-Grown Meat Change the Pet Food World?
"Do we ensure that what we feed our pets is not only good for them a rich in protein and all the nutrients new to keep them healthy but good for our planet to ask many of us reduce our meat intake or opt for more sustainable animal proteins. Could we do the same for pets for the article. This episode is based on how stuff works. Spoke with greg aldrich a research associate professor in the coordinator of the pet food program the department of grain science and industry at kansas state university. He said it's all doable. I can formulate a vegetarian diet for a dog. I can make a vegan diet for a dog. it's just a lot harder to get it all balanced and then to get them to like it. The pet food institute estimates that more than one hundred and eighty million dogs and cats are living in. us households and the american pet products association reports that americans spent more than forty two billion dollars on pet foods and treats in twenty twenty alone and all of that is rough on the planet a twenty seventeen paper written by ucla researcher. Gregory oaken found that american dogs and cats are responsible through the food. They eat for the release of up to sixty four million tons of harmful greenhouse gases year. But it's not as if we're feeding our pets big slabs of brontosaurus sorace ribs and live chickens pet foods in the. Us generally have plenty of grains included. Corn is in fact. The number one ingredient used overall in cat and dog foods. According to the north american renderers relation but most pet foods do have a huge animal component. The reason for that is simple dogs and cats and you and i need protein and eating meat or meat by products is often the best. I and cheapest source of protein.

"That's a great question and when we initially started talking about translating this animal model to humans. We have a big group working on this and our general consensus. Was that if we tried to move this to humans. Nobody's ever gonna sign track in. Humans are smarter that if they're in a laboratory situation why were. They signed check and in fact. That is not what we're doing. And so we found that you know. This is all very preliminary unpublished data. But it seems to be that in adult humans and young adult. Humans are young adult meaning actually college students so college students and slightly older humans as well Even under variable conditions. You can see a great tendency of them to sidetrack and we can change a parameter so that we change that distribution of whether or not there sign or goal trackers are. They're tendencies but for the most part. We seem to be able to capture both sign and goal tracking in humans. And what the data starting to look like as we've looked across ages and so we've looked at Five to seven year olds and night to thirteen year olds and then young adult and adult humans and own especially in children. What we saw was was in retrospect should have been predicted but in younger children we see that the population seems to be skewed toward sign trackers and so these are studies where we actually took a very similar apparatus to what we use in rats. In this case it's A big green lego box that these kids are place in front of a new luminated. Lever comes out and it retracts. The kids got an announcement adjacent food cop when we did that. To fight the seven year olds What we saw is that the majority of the population around fifty subjects. Both males and females Were skewed towards sign trackers. So that is we had Zero pure gold trackers in in that task under those conditions without particular population again. In retrospect that makes perfect sense so kids age on the germany. Know that they're more likely to kind of Use their hands to explore things and to approach and interact with things and from a logical perspective. We know that their cortex is not yet developed to inhibit such responses right. And so they're not using. They're not tapping into those kind of mechanisms at that age. I mean yeah. Go ahead if i was also thinking that. Is it any sort of a dog native caused rationale here. I would stipulate have signed tracking is less cognitively. Costly right So yeah in the those. Were our initial hypothesis. Based on what we knew from the classic learning letter was that nicole trackers are using more of this cognitive sort of top down learning processes whereas sign trackers are using more user of bottom up bottom up motivational processes and in fact Studies in my laboratory have shown are are starting to suggest that that is indeed the case in so It seems that while you know these Connections connections from the cortex subcortical structures like the alma or the nucleus accumbens. These critical connections are really important for encoding. That predictive value. So that is Including the predictive value..

"And how you one thing before you know it. You're ready thinking. The earth is flat or the george floyd killing was faked because of how these algorithms with woken have the funnel people into particular way of thinking by the time the time for discussion on this people completely damaged the opposed positions and cannot meet Using facts from both of those positions that nobody as she recognizes as valid. That's something that's quite different and something that we haven't really felt to this. Extreme on a global level is there a particular kind of person that he's more susceptible to being targeted with false information all fake or is more susceptible to getting down the rabbit hole. You talk about with the algorithm cape serving you up a slightly more extreme version of the last thing you looked at so you. You start off inquiring about george floyd skilling and somehow you end up with the extreme propaganda that it was faked they people who are more susceptible to that yes. I mean what we know is an indivisible fantastic research on this on thinking about highly lessons group on the school of hygiene in particular that women older people and minority groups are more likely to be the target of this misinformation and false information in the same way that the algorithms trolls that mean that women politicians more likely to receive really unpleasant messages and the targeted by that on accident. The algorithms exist talk women in. That's been proven women. Older people in minority communities are more likely to receive misinformation false information. And if you go back to the baby. Formula example that i gave that's often because he's a groups who are more likely to try to seek out information or the field information that's available. Is there for them. So if you take. The example of the vaccine covid vaccine. I think he's just been over a month. Since there's been an official government statement that it's safe for pregnant women to be vaccinated. This has been over years Toe the vaccine was going to be available just a six months. Since the official rollout of the vaccine is begun so in that time there's been no targeted no official statement to alleviate concerns of health population around what vaccine is going to do to them their bodies unborn child. It's what we've had. As millions of women in droves thousands going online to try and find out information. precisely abbess. Now what does this vaccine for me. And those women are susceptible to possessive. What you're saying the go lining looking something on a before you know it the information. That's either confusing or or putting them off on giving them real concerns about the vaccine because the people who are addressing those concerns after the first people to giving them misinformation they have a particular agenda and so this is really asking questions when we think about fakes is really asking us. Why is it taking so long what to really think about half of the population what that population needs. You know..

"David genuine fakey something us both real and fake at the same time a classic example is some is a synthetic diamond which i had to learn a lot about so synthetic diamond is a diamond has exactly the same chemical properties as a natural diamond but is created in a lab at very difficult to detect. So it's real in the sense of this chemical structure that of a diamond but it's considered fake because it's not mind and so that the loads of examples like this and i'm just really fascinated by. What can we learn about who gets to say. Something's real fake just by using some of these examples. So the podcasts. Really exposed that probably the most famous use of the phrase fake in contemporary times spain attached to fake news and it was donald trump that we used to hear that from constantly in fact he used to used to draw it. Anybody who's simply didn't agree with him. If we move from things like synthetic diamonds to the world of ideas. What do you think the difference is between what donald trump was climbing was fake news. And what you would consider as fake news. I think discussing fake news to me and my reputation of that is important. Because actually what we get into. The holiday is power. Who gets to decide that. Something's really fake. And i think donald trump was touching on when he was discussing. Fake news was a kind of prevailing sense amongst certain groups that the news. We have doesn't really touch them. They consider to be real or that. There's something else that's going on. All of his faults every now and again just to randomness more than anything. Donald trump was able to sometimes touch on some of these feelings that prevailing. And i think what we can save from a sense of marginalization with the news really represent what people believe is it puts us to place his way. We need to think hard about really has not produced whose voice is heard. So i mean take out something. Quite contentious big got in the uk will know south divide in terms of how people think about the news and who the news is full so people in the know. Think you know the news really represents things that people in the south london thinking care about. The news isn't really representing their real concerns of the they would care about so in those situations. It's really easy for them to take this concern that been presented in the media isn't real. It's a fake consensus. He's got nothing to do things with thinking about that kind of marginalisation. From what seen the seats power. Who gets to decide what's important is really off the hall of this Fake news and the way that people think about fake news and another example is the beginning of covid. Nurses were really soft on twitter This fake news around the allocation and the access to pcp. The government was sending was available. Necessary saying isn't available and so there was a sense in which often fake news can give us a accessing to where people think that then the voices are being heard and whether or not being represented now of course as political manipulation as we've seen with donald trump to shut down..

I got to explore the world of broadcast media and my college scholarship. Amy toward a career in broadcasting as a news reporter and producer during my junior year in college i engaged with a truly amazing professor of advertising. His name was howard cogan and he helped me to completely alter my career path. Besides being much admired associate professor at the college park school of communications howard was the successful advertising executive who wrote voiced and produced most of the commercials. That ran on ithaca new york radio stations. It is without a doubt that howard cogan was the most important mentor of my professional and personal life from our first meeting. He took a deep personal interest in me and my success and he soon convinced me to refocus my career sites away from broadcast news to advertising and media and specifically towards the fast growing channel advertising called direct marketing so with graduation day in my sights. I focused my job. Search on entry level opportunities at an ad agency focused on direct marketing. But the going wasn't easy and the rejection letters arrived by the day problem was i had graduated into one of the most depressed job. Markets for entry level talent and a generation. Howard's advice to me was cheerful but sobering dan.

How Will Babies Born During the Pandemic Meet the World?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Dr sherri madigan associate professor psychology. Department of the university of calgary she holds a candidate research chair in determinants of child development. Hello dr megan. thanks for having me. You are most welcome i will tell you. We got the idea for this episode. from a listener. Who wrote us with a question. Can i begin by asking you that question. Yes sounds great. So this is a listener unnamed. Diana who wrote that. I've had a baby during the pandemic and he is about to start daycare. He has not been held by anyone. Outside of our household no other adults have ever cared for him although my parents would have loved to help travel restrictions during the pandemic prevented them from visiting. I'm worried for what this means for his socialization. So should she worried. Well it's a really good question actually a common one so this has been a topic. I've been asked to actually speak on a few times. Because i know that parents are thinking a lot about this and worried i guess what i would say is that it is going to be a little bit difficult for kids to transition into a daycare environment. Because it's going to be so new and novel to them now. The reality is that kids always find it hard transition into a daycare environment because it's new and novel to them so that's not different than how life was pre pandemic but i think the big difference now when kids are are doing that switch over into day care is that they haven't had a lot of interaction with other people and they're going to be thrusted into an environment where everything is really really knew and the interactions are really new.

Why don't we break down a few of the key concepts that you've been developing in your research and the first one i'd like to discuss is media infrastructures which draws attention to this interplay between digital platforms. Which is kind of the services that we're all familiar with and the physical infrastructures that make those platforms work. And i think. Maybe we're not all familiar with those. So could you outline the concept of media infrastructures for us and why we should even be thinking about media infrastructures in the first place. Absolutely yeah you allow me to be a little idiosyncratic and just tell me a little bit how. I came to these concept. Maybe that would. That would be helpful just because this is a history that i guess we'll be telling on how we can put these different concepts together. My background is in a media. Medication studies and i worked a lot since my phd. On the concept of blood. I worked lots a studied. Participatory mapping google maps. Open street map and we are here. Yeah mid-2000s is still the whip. Two point zero seeking pretty strong and the type of scholarship at the time. Emphasizes the participatory nature off these pot for allowing people to post more easily to create to engage in activism or creative practices. so that was my standpoint. that's what i really started with A post doctoral fellowship at university of michigan and with my colleagues where i became much more more familiar with the concept of infrastructure. I worked a lot with polite words. Carla goes the christian. Send vague and these folks are much more on the stf side of these topics of the study of technolog- and the where of course talking about and they were talking about large distribution systems. They're put together via standards and gateways in these type of things but what was super interesting when we started working together and focusing more on the facebook and google's of the world. Is that what. I was describing. As platform there were describing as infrastructure.
Why Small Talk is More Important Than You Think
"Remember when you start your day in the office with casual chitchat. How was your weekend. Can you believe this weather planning any trips this summer. It may have seemed trivial but it turns out. There's nothing small about small talk in fact it can be an aid to innovation it can build trust and rapport and just plain happier at work. But what happens to small talk when we're all working from home to learn more about the benefits of small talk and how we can still get them in the now. We went to expert. Dr jessica methods. Dr method is an associate professor of human resource management at rutgers university and a member of the academy of management organizational behavioral division. Here's what dr method had to say. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. So you recently published a study on small talk in the workplace now that so. Many of us are in virtual workplaces. How have conversations among co workers changed. This is such an incredibly important conversation. And when we conducted this study it was pre pandemic. we could not have anticipated how disruptive this remote work boom could have been so really in the past decade. We have seen that so many companies have adopted a more open office space designed so. They've really been focused on strategically designing their workspaces to promote spontaneous casual collisions where employees can just bump into each other in the hallway or at the microwave to have small talk and the idea. There is that these informal chats can be released serendipitous. They can help build rapport and trust and collaboration and they create opportunities for creativity and innovation because these employees are talking with people that they wouldn't necessarily have interacted with otherwise but the transition to remote work has really narrowed the focus of our networks. And the people we have exposure to and who we can talk to sewer networks have been narrowed really to our closest connections are family members are very close friends and our supervisor's and those out. On the periphery who we weren't as close with are kind of in this period of suspended animation
Navigating the Complexities of Black Indigenous Identity
"Black and indigenous communities share similar struggles as marginalized people on turtle island that combined. History can be quite complicated. My next guest has dedicated much of his work. As an academic to thinking about these connections robert keith collins is an expert on black indigenous interactions. He's an associate professor of american indian studies at san francisco state university. He's african american and choctaw. And he's here to tell us about a history. Many people know very little about welcome to the show dr collins. Thank you very much for having me. So let's start at the beginning. What is the beginning of indigenous black history. That's a fantastic question. And actually we owe a lot of our understanding about it to a canadian scholar. Alexander francis chamberlain france as in in eighteen. Ninety one wrote one of the most comprehensive analysis that we have today and that was african americans and what we find in that study is that this is actually a history. His later colleague would refer to as the third line of colonization. We've talked about a european and native colonization. We talk about european and african colonization. We seldom talk about american. Interactions during the colonization and this is a history that brings that back to live where we actually see cultural exchanges between people that are taking place within sovereign native communities as well as nations and families we also see interactions taking place especially for like in the united states among the five civilized tribes chuck. Todd's cherokees creeks chickasaw seminoles in slavery were native americans owned slaves and have an cultural impact on africans within their communities on their

It's wonderful to be here. Thank you so much for having me and for that. Very warm reduction so division of special operations. What exactly is that sounds more military than civilian well. It's structured is what i would say and indeed our division special operations at johns hopkins. The division really got its roots nearly two decades ago in being the central focus for all of the out of hospital medicine activities that johns hopkins emergency medicine overseas and that includes the interval syllabi transport programming includes some of our operational medical programs in support of tactical law enforcement medicine special event medicine and a few other topics and initially had some roots in disaster medicine. Which has also grown into its own unique and blossoming flourishing specialty area or focus area so we were close with some of our colleagues as well nowadays so are you coordinating and training these guys on the line. The guys who show up first. Those first responders that were so appreciative for well. It certainly is a team effort. I would say that. I'm one of the people doing that. Training in my role as an ems medical director. I certainly work very closely with our ems. Educators and helping to design implement and facilitate the delivery of educational content. And yes. i do spend a good portion of my time.

We should also say you are our family doctor, And I think you're great. So thank you. Thank you for that. Can you give us a quick overview? Really? What Your typical day was like during the cove in peak in New York City, and how that compared to a typical day pre coded? Yes. So I do predominantly preventive medicine. I do a lot of checkups and things that are done in a fairly routine fashion. What happened at the end of March is I went from having a few conversations with people who were having fever to having 8 to 10 patients a day calling in with symptoms that were concerning when I would say of my practice of about 1000 patients. 50 had covert related illness. So I spent a lot of time basically talking to people on the phone the last two weeks of March and the first two weeks of April where the peak time here in New York City and at what point did you stop going into your office to see people and handling this all? Elektronik, Lee? Well, I never stopped going into my office because I live within walking distance of my office. So my office manager and I worked the entire time. It was also easier for me to be in my office in what I felt was my command central. When I was handling all the phone calls, I had very quick access to my Elektronik health records. I was able to use my office as a reassuring background for any video calls that I had with patients, and it just allowed me to kind of stay focused. So I would do an initial console to a telemedicine consulate and then I would create my list of phone calls of people who I would call and follow up on. Over the next day or two or week or two, So I should say we were on your daily call she for a while. We had illness in the family during that time, which was Pretty concerning, especially because in New York City, you know the big concern is if you go to the hospital, what's going to happen there and So we were talking to you every day for seemed like, typically 20 to 30 minutes. So what happened with Cove it And the hard thing for physicians is that there was so much uncertainty. And there was a sense that there wasn't much we could do other than maybe manage some of the other medications that the patient was taking, or maybe listen and see if on top of a viral infection, they were developing bacterial infections or pneumonias or Sinus infections or ear infection. So every day I felt Follow up phone calls. They were to reassure the patient. But it was also for me to learn more about the illness and what was happening and then to make micro interventions to maybe prevent.

"associate professor" Discussed on Outcomes Rocket
"We are hyper focused. On on value based care and consumerism and healthcare some super excited for a doctor Robinson's perspectives. In addition to to his previous roles he's also an associate professor of medicine at the Thomas Jefferson University Sidney Kimmel Medical College and he's also a practicing physician so It is truly a privilege to have him as not only a health industry leader but also a practicing physician to talk about some of these trends and healthcare with that at Mondo. I WanNa give you a warm welcome. Thanks for joining us being over me. So what is it that got you inspired to do the work that you do that Robinson and had as you said I'm reading my bio a little bit? I had a few different roles and my inspiration has always been consistent. It's I truly want to make a difference. I knew it seems Corny. But you know it's it's one of the drivers I think there's so much opportunity in healthcare to affecting improve people's lives in one of his. Why continue to practice that one on one interaction where you are truly little hospital so literally? Saving someone's life that is inspiring and then even as I think about digital in the opportunity to improve affect people's health across steeled across a large population continues to inspire me. It's it's the the one on one. Interactions the interactions as well as the N. Equals many interactions To me they inspire me in different ways but at the end of the day. We actually truly helping people in that. That's a good reason to get out of bed morning. Totally agree with you and my head and heart are in the same place. I don't think it's Corny. I think it's a great thing to be moved by. And and so I'm curious. Now you know with the work that you're doing there at the cancer center however you guys adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. What's different and better about what you guys are doing is interesting the goals here at MCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center or nothing less than curing cancer. It's not a ambiguous. Goal is to Jimmy to the provincial tour of cancer. So you know when you when everyone has is is lockstep with that that focus. It's very refreshing right. You know what your goal is my job on the digital side say how do I leverage digital for that same goal right? So what does that look like? And we all have the same goal I bring in digital so you start thinking about those areas like how do I improve outcomes? How do I use things like machine learning and hey I to improve clinical outcomes of those folks that we that we serve? How do I use digital to drive? Cost drive down cost. We can cure cancer cheaper And make it more accessible thinking about robotic process automation. Those kinds of things improving operations. And how do I do all of that? With an even better experience for patients it had delivered digital to skill that improved experience Across the entire population that we serve. So those are those. That's how we how we approach from a digital perspective the opportunity to contribute to the provision cure cancer. I love it and so as as we wrap our heads around this digital theme. How does that translate into? Say The work that you've done in consumerism. And and and you know. How does that translate to the physician level? That's providing care all the way down to the the patients that you guys are taking care of interesting. I like to. It's great great question. I'd like to start with the patients in and go back or go the other way. And actually you mentioned consumer and so there's different ways of defining who we serve honestly even though I've had the title consumer may not be the most comfortable for me but there needs to be some acknowledgement that there are people who are engaging in health and health behaviors and improving their health. They don't see themselves as patients and so we have to figure out. How do we how do we want? How do we engage with them? And then and then what do we call them? So right now the best definition that they have we have the best kind of description that we have is consumer twice until I hear something better than people as a new people so people have said okay. Let's just people which I did but it's a little it's a little loose um so I think I like consumer healthcare to me feels a little bit better than just. Kinda brought people that being said. Now how do you engage with consumers? Well the way everyone else. Every other extreme these consumer digitally right. That's that's the way you engage with them whether it's online or SMS text or or it's mobile APPS and so we're that's how you engage with people it's not complicated conceptually. It's complicated in execution in so anyone disagrees with the idea that you engage with consumers Digitally that's certainly how you skill. Now there's certainly aspects of what we do in healthcare and other industries as well where you need a physical need a physical component to that so now we start talking about the operation talking about the physicians and so forth. So how do you then convert you know? It's almost clicks to bricks. How do you convert those digital interactions into those physical interactions with necessary? And it's not always necessary and you think about things like virtual care and so now he's saying well. How do we optimize our operations so streamline that we can focus on those physical interactions when necessary into a really good job at that and then? How do we bring everyone along? Who's been a traditional healthcare system for decades right? How do we bring those folks along to this digital age? So that's part of that's part of the work that's the work of digital and if you ignore as a digital person as a as a digital innovator ignore the people part of the operations and the clinical piece you will fail Absolutely must focus on those people. Whether it's the frontline staff back the operations and certainly the clinicians physicians nurses pharmacists and so forth that needs to be a high focus. And so you know there's this title of digital in this time of innovation but at the end of the day is it's about people about people and it's about people love it it's a it's a great call out. And and what do you believe makes what you do and what? The Cancer Center does better than what's available today. There are many opportunities to leverage on digital. You think broadly about how do you leverage digital? We've got some really really talented people that are working in the digital realm. And when I when I called JOE FROM FOR MOFFITT IN. Our team includes the entire. It shop Includes Informatics and includes data in here as well as the war to things that people think about digital in terms of you know virtual care and an absence so forth so think about informatics thinking about the opportunity to refine the way that clinicians interact with the electronic medical record. I mean you can have a whole separate broadcasts. I'm a podcast about the electronic medical record the pros and cons and you'll spend more time on the cons by the way and so that's a whole so. Don't just refining right. So you're familiar with his right. I just. We're finding that in Iran finding that interaction and so that you can actually focus on the people Both who are delivering the chairs for the people who are receiving here in receiving those. Those interactions In so there's that piece there's also you know how you leverage data to optimize outcomes whether it's refining your your interaction so you know you have a list of people who potentially could have some kind of intervention. But you're leveraging data big data in this way to say it but it's really this subset of those people who are truly going to benefit can. That's leveraging use use machine learning and in some cases around around that you can do that as well in imaging as well where you actually have a algorithms that are that are looking at your films in supporting the radiologists in optimizing that outcome in you know so. The operations clinical operations. The wins this is interact with the electronic medical record. And then against the way that patients and consumers engage with the system itself whether it's through Piece of portals which I'm not saying by the way so I think I think about the way we engage much more broadly than that you know everyone starts with Dr Google Right. So so what are you doing around that when you're doing an online search what are you doing around our? Seo Sem and all those kinds of concepts as well that entire package right of digital web going from the interactions with a patient and consumers all the way through the clinical operations and operations all the way through to the to the hardcore kind of big data components data. Tighter action is the value that we bring by leveraging digital to improve the ultimately improve outcomes. Yeah I think it's interesting and and then there's the spectrum right Dr Robinson I'm thinking on the one hand folks like yourself that are well versed and understand how to operationalize these these things and then on the other end is folks that don't understand a how to do it. What what advice would you give to other hospitals wanting to take some of this digital up and don't know really where to start? Yeah so it's a great question and there's there actually are levels to that conversation. What are the challenges in? Us Healthcare is you've seen one helsing health system so the answer to your question actually depends on the health system. There are a couple of things I think that are in there though. Is that quite frankly? I can pretty much guarantee that you've probably underinvested in digital. That's that's that's going to be. You know whatever whatever health system I'm talking to you underinvested. And so Just realized that building out digital is going to require an investment. It reminds me of this idea of you. Know we're going to imagine houses and says hey we want to grow our our surgery business we. Let's say we want to grow our joint replacement business And so they say. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA grow replace. Let's go you know. Maybe let's hire some hire someone or something but they did to build operating rooms in hospitals and or equipment in those kinds of things. We don't need any of that so we just going to hire the docs you. Can't you have to build the infrastructure if you want to grow that business the same is true for digital you actually have to invest in the infrastructure around digital? If you actually want to grow that business you can't just say hey we're digital. How does it work that way? And so again. Almost guaranteed that they underinvested in digital part of the reason is because it's much easier to get money to build a building bonds. You know tons of health is going up for bond rather than the Rachel Crane tons of. It's much easier to do that for buildings to build a digital or it right so that's it so there's reasons fine but quite frankly you've probably already under underinvested until you actually have to have some dedicated resources around..

"Is an associate professor at the department of history at Columbia University and he joined us in studio to talk about cashmere Monon thanks for joining us thank you India is a secular nation technically but the prime minister mody has been pushing a Hindu nationalist agenda how does that the integration of cashmere which is majority Muslim fit into that historically speaking before this present regime Chris mir was one of the demonstrations of India's secular constitution is a demonstration of the secular nature of India's democracy and it was in such certain ways but it was also a way in which community people were subjugated governed by New Delhi by the state I want to say that the rise of majoritarian politics throughout the world Turkey box on certainly and you know hungry and some might say United States dove tails with the kind of agenda that the BJP has in India and that majoritarian ism in India looks like Hindu majoritarian is somewhere Muslims have been lynched for under the suspicion of eating beef there are violence a lot of violence urban violence of against Muslims who most recently after this election who refused to say Jay street on as a way of kind of a claiming these supremacy of lord around so in this way the majoritarian politics that we see you around the world is very much in control and India as well we mentioned that there were celebrations in some parts of India about Kashmir's integration but we're also seeing protests against the integration can you help us understand those two sides thank you it's very important I mean India is a very large some say the world's largest democracy I would submit however that a lot of times the amount of information that is available about cashmere to Indians is very low and one can imagine if I could make an analogy here that is how many Americans know what is the status of native people on reservations in this country or even how many people know what is happening in Porto Rico and why the people of Puerto Rico are on the streets right now so a typical citizen would have a very a narrow and and perhaps romanticized view of Christian here that they may have gotten for movies or or from their politicians in that sense article three seventy was one of the planks of the B. J. P. as early as late eighties and into the nineties and this part of their political campaign was always to say that if a smear was couldn't could normalized they will be able to as in the Indian state will be able to settle cordon could settle that territory well it's political demand for self recognition our publicized and in that sense I think there I'm sure there are many many people who are very happy that this has happened this is a long held demand this is why B. J. P. was voted into power on the other hand there a conscientious scholars in Indians who recognize that crashed near is under what we make called a severe military occupation there's been I think the word most associated with Chris mir is curfew you know if you're my generation if you were born anytime after nineteen seventy you would know that Chris Mary's have lived their lives under curfew they they have physical checkpoints any Indian troops can enter their house search them and search their possessions commuters can be taken away our our frequently tortured so that is actually the reality and it very well is that many ordinary Indian citizens are just not aware of that and finally what does this do to the relationship between India and Pakistan I think that in the inbox on are and have been you know in great military stress for for much of their existence and have gone to back active war and as you pointed out are nuclear powers I would suggest that you know the the way in which we can say that in the or the in doing state is playing to their majority box on the state box on the service has been largely governed by its military has its own agenda where they've used crush me here as a way to mobilize of right wing politics in their own country there have obviously supplied weapons and terrorists to different parts of cashmere in order to Stoke certain things so there are certainly part of the problem and talks on a still not officially said anything as in they have said that we're formulating a response but I would suggest that we think actually instead of with the thing always thinking about and foregrounding the right the the actions of the states like Indian box than we think about the because many people who have been rendered speechless through this process and what will the Kashmiri people do I think that's the really the key question because the because we demand for self determination is not a new demand has been going on since nineteen thirties it is it's part and parcel of anticolonial movement and because many people have not been heard at any stage of this entire twentieth century and even now in the twenty first century we find them muted and we find their voices silenced and I feel most passionately that that this the voice that we should we should seek we should try to find that voice we should try to enable that boys Indian bugs on are kind of like playing the same playbook they have been playing over and over and over again and you know I can I can certainly provide the box and will say we do not recognize India's right over because we're just media is you know our territory and India will save and Christmas is our territory and so on and so forth and both sets of governments will be very happy to take this belligerence to their vote banks into their supporters and and continue continue to kind of make their politics about that and I think in all of this drama the communities are.

"Specialist and associate professor in Michigan state university's department of plant soil microbe eel sciences, Kevin happy spring. Thank you find maybe finally get to some spring weather. So I like the ask your every winters different seems like this one was easy early harsh late. But what kind of winter are we coming out of? And then what challenges that presenting for the spring overall? It wasn't too bad. Because like you said took a while to arrive, and then we suffered through what mid January through mid March least, I mean with cold weather, but throughout most of that period, especially in the lower part of the state. I mean, there wasn't consistent snow cover. I mean, you know, I I played golf over the Christmas holiday in new years. I think. Even in. There's no. So the reason that has some impact for for some of the turf is that some of the different snow mold that you might even see on your line, generally choirs, some pretty good snow cover, especially for the grace noble. Tweet us. You don't see in this part of the state, certainly as you get further north and then into the UP concertedly see more of that gray snowmobile type of of disease because typically will say about three months of snow cover which down here. We haven't had anywhere close to that. So what I've looked at some of the terse, so far as you know, we've gotten rid of the snow in the last week or two. I haven't seen the last show. Mold doesn't doesn't mean. The typical areas aren't gonna look bad. You know near the near the street where the snow plow has been piling, the ice and snow and salt in dirt and everything else that typically looks kind of bad coming out. But overall, I would have to say that the the winner probably was was fairly friendly to our turf grass. So Kevin as you like to remind us when we talk fall is really the best time to fertilize and get things ready for the next season. But people love to get out in the spring and do things too. So maybe two answers, what should someone do who did fertilize and kinda get ready in the fall, and what should someone who didn't do? So..
