Philadelphia museums make tentative reopening plans
"Well, Philadelphia Museums are hoping to reopen very soon They were temporarily shut down because of the pandemic, and now they're waiting to see if the January 4th reopening date still holds. It all depends on the number of covert 19 cases after the holidays and how things will look After everything happens after Christmas, and New Year's POW John McDevitt reports, museums are now working on the plans to try to open up again. If museums are permitted to reopen on January, 4th by officials plans to open doors to in person visitors very at the Betsy Ross house.

Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19
"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.
Philadelphia judge rejects Trump's poll-watcher lawsuit
"Has ruled against of the Trump campaign, denying a request to put poll watchers in the cities a satellite election offices. KOW City Hall bureau chief Pat Lobe reports. The judge agreed with the city that the offices are not polling places. Judge Gary Glaser says the offices don't fit either the time or geographic limitations for polling places in the state election code that is on election day in and for a specific voting district. Nor, he says, are the functions of polling places performed there. No opening counting. A recording of ballots. Bessie says allowing Paul watchers were state law makes no provision for them would be the worst sort of judicial activism usurping the legislative function. The ruling is a victory for the city commissioners, who opened the offices to ease getting in returning male and ballots in light of their unexpected popularity due to the cove it 19 pandemic and to reassure voters in light of the president's repeated attacks on male and voting. The commissioners are allowing Onley voters conducting business inside the offices. They say they're pleased with the decision and we'll welcome poll watchers on Election Day. In the meantime, Judge Glaser recommended the Trump campaign except the commissioner's offer to tour the offices. But not to linger, Pat Lobe K Y.

And we're back. Thank you sponsor. So, she ended up going back to Chicago and she did have notoriety there but she wasn't necessarily monetarily wealthy She made enough money to live. So she went back to Texas in nineteen, twenty five and giving lectures became something that was a big part of her life. that did help make her money. She gave lectures and prepare for more flying demonstrations. And a note here that over this time she'd mentoring doing these flights she wouldn't fly in front of a segregated audience. So that was one of her demands she said, she wanted everybody to enter through the same gay and that often happened in when she was flying in the north her first show in Texas was on June Eighteenth Nineteen twenty five and it was segregated. So there were plenty of times where she did get people to make these concessions when it came to having integrated shows but that didn't happen on her first show in Texas and she did go on to do more shows in the Houston area and She did more lectures as well. So during those like sure, she would encourage folks to take up aviation. She would also show clips of her flights. and. Parachute from a plane herself for the first time in September of Nineteen, twenty, five at an air show in Texas. So she continue turn the country he went to Georgia and Florida and lectured she would appear in theater she would appear in schools and churches and but she did meet resistance in Florida for wanting shows that weren't segregated. But yeah. So in Orlando she did have success getting an integrated show but all this time she's touring enduring all these lectures she was also still dreaming about opening her aviation school she was looking for. Financial support for that as well. Also because that doesn't come without cost and so. That's still in the back of her mind in in her Georgia and Florida exhibition flights she flew borrow planes because plane having crashed. But she did end up earning enough money and getting money from a friend to buy another surplus genie, which is what they call it the jam for this yet found in Dallas. So there is William Wills who was a mechanic and a pilot. He flew the plane, the one that she had found in Dallas from Dallas Jacksonville for her after she. Earned enough money to buy it. The plane was in pretty poor conditions. So it wasn't great. But she had been invited to fly at the nineteen twenty six May. Day celebration in Jacksonville that was sponsored by the Negro Welfare League and that was important to her because as we discussed at the top of this show like she got she had support but she didn't have a ton of support for it to be able to raise money for the endeavors that she wanted to be able to attain, and so it was important to her because this is a notable black organization. That could potentially help her get closer to her dream of opening in aviation school. Of fortunately like this hurts she couldn't. She was never able to realize that dream because she died early. So. This was on April thirtieth today before the event William Wills, the mechanic and pilot, and then Bessie, they took the plane out for a test flight before the big show. He piloted the plane and she was sitting in the back and he had his seat belt on but she didn't have Hersi on because she was looking over the plane trying to survey the fields below and get a sense of everything and she was planning a parachute jump for the next day. But after they were in the air for not that long the plane went into a dive and tell spin and it flipped over and threw her out of the aircraft and that killed her they were really high up you know William, he stayed in the plane, but he also died it crashed and caught on fire. And After that happened, some people believe that William Wills May the plane lose control? They blamed him said, he was guilty of murder, but it ended up turning out that there was a wrench that was used to service the plane that slid into the gearbox. It made it spin so like as you mentioned like. Already something that seems so dangerous to do in the first place like because there were so many stops for things that could happen accidents that could happen like that as there are now. And also the plane was old in. Like, you know was already in poor condition. That something. So small CASSIM. So insignificant as ranch as something that could into people's lives and you know affect so many others based on the people that wills and all the loved ones for William. Wills and for for Bessie Coleman, you know were affected by by their deaths and. Also. All of the people who you know aspire to be aviators. All the people who didn't know who they would learn from bessie. Coleman. Affected by her death. That was you know the end of her story unfortunately like she lived a pretty she only lived in terror thirties there were. Funeral services that were held for her a couple in Florida and when a Chicago that of wells presided over and she was very Lincoln Cemetery in Chicago. And so though it's been said that like you know her achievements didn't really get the recognition. That she had earned while she was alive there were. People who supported who encouraged her to see who came to see her shows who acknowledged the fact that she had to learn French and then she went to France to study. Flying and then came back to the US and talked herself up which I'm advocate for actually Alpha stop. Talk yourself up because. Nobody else will. Oh Yeah I mean. Like you said, you gotTa have especially she's trying to drum up like people to come to show you gotta this public. Persona. Talk yourself up all the way I've offered to. We've been taught for so long does not okay and it's indecent for women to do you see her doing it and doing it well and being able to succeed for the time that she good inspirational. Do it. Yeah Yeah Yep. She had a lot of support at the funerals though so they were thousands of people that attended her Chicago funeral and see also been honored in many ways sense. So she was on a stamp, a US stamp in nineteen ninety-five. There were pilots who fly over her grave since like annually since nineteen thirty one. There were black women pilots who started a club that named after her in the nineteen seventies and. I guess she's been honored.

"Few and far between, and there weren't any black American women who had a pilot's license yet she applied to aviation schools but her applications in the US were rejected because they don't to teach a black woman. There was Robert S Abbott who comes up in her story as a person who is a benefactor who supports her and encourages her throughout her turning to become an aviator tricks. You know what? I'm using Gender Avionics here because I like the way it sounds I'm not like. Like, a different thing than aviator. Aviator Dick Sounds like you're doing. You're above it's a step above aviators cycling. Academic version. Besser ship US beyond just knowing the Asian allied created this. It reminds me of Dominatrix too so. I'm choosing to flip back and forth between the. Allied a good word. So he was the editor and publisher of the newspaper, the Chicago defender, which was a black newspaper. He was black and he was friends with her supported her and she told him about her dream of becoming an aviator. He really supported that and he suggested that she learned French and apply for flying schools in France and she did just that she saved her money. She got money from people to help finance her goal of going overseas to learn a fly and then in. November of nineteen twenty, she left the US went to Europe Ocean liner and once she got to France she enrolled at a school of Aviation. She learned to fly under French and German instructors, and she learned to fly a Newport type eighty, two biplane so they were. Obviously these are early years there wasn't a steering wheel or brakes to still like big wooden stick to control the plane and a rudder bar under the pilots fee. And yes, she went through school and she got her pilot's license on June Fifteenth Nineteen Twenty one from the Royal Air Sports Federation and that enabled her to fly around the world. So that's her I. You know she she does that in a different country and when she gets back to the US there is a little bit of press about her but as she's over there, you know who knows what's going on. In the US. But at this point, that's when she becomes the first black American woman to get a pilot's license. She spent a couple more months in France before she did go back to the US getting some more flying lessons but she returned in September and there were black newspapers in industry journals that Roe about her. They touted her as the first black woman to the coming Aviator I. Love. Again with the wording. Like they had headlines like first NEGRAS VA. tricks. And a reported that she planned to start exhibition flying in the US pretty soon. But you know to make bike how am I going to make money from flying now radio how to fly, which is always the thing And I love that she just like. Without abandoned like went for it. You know I was like God back was like Oh no need to figure out how hill I'm GonNa make money from this. But Yeah so she realized that she had to become a barn stormer to make money flying and so barnstorming was something that was popular in the US in the twenty s in the nineteen twenties, and that's when pilots will perform stunts on airplanes. That this came about with planes specifically because after World War ended, there was all these pilots who were trying to figure out a way to make money. Now they had they wanted to figure out what to do with this thing that they love how to do. And the US also has surplus airplanes. So they would go to rural areas and then what do stunts in shows and they would make a little money through that they would fly through barn doors they will walk on airplane wings, and of course, over time you know things became more dared deadly. Like the stakes were. Like Oh, this enough of flying on airplane wings. You know now it's time to parachute all this stuff became pretty competitive and it was an area that was open to women and people in the US and so this meant that obviously not meaning that there were no impediments to be able to become to be able to fly. She went to a country. So this meant that betsy would need. More or less. So she went back to Europe learned more in the Netherlands France and Germany and she stayed there for some months and then was back in the US by August nineteen, twenty two she made her first appearance in an air show in New York, in Long Island. That was sponsored by the Chicago defender. There was a nine hundred, twenty, two article about the event that said, she was quote the greatest flyer of her sex in the world which. Was, the bold statement. But yeah, they kinda played up the event you know like needed to get people to come as often needed to do in feels that was that were so competitive. There were other pilots in show and she soon went to Chicago to perform again. She did stuff stunts and tricks in her flying like figure eight. Loops and other kinds of tricks, and as she did exhibition flights, there were more newspaper articles on her and of course, something by press is important in. Creating. The mystique around you and gaining an audience to be able to spectators at your events especially as a black woman Obviously a guy like to say this even like this, this is what happens so often, but but the the novelty in being the black woman. was part of her story but yet to attract attention and pick up press, you still had to play her character up. So the black press printed a lot of praise about her but their mainstream white own press still didn't give her as much attention. So flying China make away their figured out how she was going to sustain her life and be able to put food on our table through that. But she did at one decided to branch off into acting. She was offered a role in a film called shadow and Sunshine that would be produced by the African. American Seminal Film Company and she did accept but she ended up. Backtracking on that acceptance and turning down the role because Basically, she wasn't here for the role that it was the opening scene she was going to be an raggedy clothes. She was going to have a walking stick in a pack and that kind of depiction of this like. Lied I like ignorant you know type of girl showing up in New York. She wasn't here for she founded degrading. And she didn't WanNa do the quote unquote. Uncle Toms stuff is what she said and there were people at Billboard and at the film company who denounced her she uh, there was a film critic and columnist Jay Jackson who said quote Ms Coleman is originally from Texas in some of her southern dialect and mannerisms still cling to her. He also said that the actor replacing her was experienced and has quote unmistakable culture. Oh Yeah. So clearly that drew a rift between her and producers and. That pay her as the angry out of line black woman. You know who wasn't respectable are smart enough wasn't polite. Enough wasn't good enough and like it was unnecessary for her to act the way that she did even if she felt that that was something that she had to do on principle. So yes, she didn't get another film role after that that could have made her a lot of money, which is something that she needed like that comes up a lot in her life. Of course, we all need money but like you know to be able to fulfill her dreams that could have been something path for her to be able to sustain herself better than just like a motive living that meant you know I can live but there is no comfort in I can't necessarily fulfill all my dreams but that was okay. You know she had other goals to she's still of course loved flying and. She was fulfilled in that way but she also wanted to open a flight school for Black Students she needed the money. So she worked for coast tire and Rubber Company. In California she used that many she made to purchase plan because she also wanted to own her own plane. And she did she she achieved that it was an old curtis J. in four that was four hundred dollars. Here's a part of her character like she often lied. And exaggerated her story you know to kind of. Her appearance in you know, make things better on her end and she told reporters when she got that she ordered three planes rather the line. When she told him, she wanted to open an aviation school and so she would say things like this. When she thought it will work in her favor and to help her get things done. Like for instance, she would also say there's also instances of her saying that she was younger than she actually was when she was thirty two she would say she was twenty three you know or things like that. But she though this paid off and get her attention. She didn't necessarily have the best reputation with everyone in some people viewed her temperamental and that also the stories she told would just sometimes mess up plans for her appearances like she would do double bookings and stuff like that, and she also fired managers. Several managers are short period of time. But after she did by the plane she. The first instance of Kinda like tragedy in her life. Well, that's like something that definitely was bad in her life like she was flying from Santa Monica to Los Angeles when the plane crashed it stalled and crashed, and so she was unconscious when she was rescued she spent some time in the hospital because she broke her leg and she broke some ribs and had other harm done turn other ways and she was released after a few months but she got a cast on her leg and and got out the plane was destroyed. So she worked hard to get to by the plane, but then it was destroyed. So. Yeah and I keep thinking about how? At, this time as you said. Flying was pretty new and these planes are just thinking about the what must have been very exhilarating but also very scary and that they could just. The engine gives out on you, right? Yeah, and she could have easily died right then looking at the time line for a lot of the young pilots. It wasn't long. It was like a continued pattern for all gallows airplanes. I just cannot imagine. Track that it must have. Usually the barnstorming didn't last long. You know all the more regulation that I mean, it was such a off the cuff like definitely type of situation that that that era didn't last super long mom and acted imagine walking on the plane's wings like I I mean I feel like this is coming from a twenty twenty vantage point of like you know there's passenger flights are so safe and we're so used to you know we're so used to that. We're so used to driving. They're so many safety improvements that have happened in when it comes to all of the. Transportation. That like you know looking back like I wouldn't have stepped foot in one of those. I am good. I wouldn't have stepped foot in one. I wouldn't have tried to learn to pilot line and I definitely wouldn't have tried to be on the wings while I was trusting somebody else to pilot right I would have gotten one I don't think I would have gone.

It's going to have like stop going there. if I if I decide to have fun with it, I'll probably do it some more because I have more awful books that I'm sure I could pull something out of it hopefully. Well, it's not like anybody would care about it anyway but. It's not worth. So technically probably violating something but. Don't tell us. Listeners don't tell. Way. Public PODCASTS. Extremely, public podcasts were literally telling thousands of people that. What I was going to say is I don't think there's much of a cross section with your audience versus like. Really, rival for the south in the. So. I. Don't think so. PODCAST IF THAT'S Okay so Yes well, that's exciting. I'm excited. Tie I love a good dramatic reading and I'm excited to hear your dramatic reading Voice Eaves I. Think I've heard it before but. I love a solid. I really hope there's a lot of southern accent into it like Oh oh, God is. The antebellum southern accent happening there because I know that. I it's really bad. It's a really bad accident. I did do an accident in. It's awful. So Like the bad I was my like my husband was helping me out with any he was like oh like. I was like, how have I lived in the south for so long and like I don't know how to do a southern accent I'm like I. Am I was born in Columbia Carolina and Raya in Georgia in somehow somehow still a caricature of the southern accent. To say I I have the exact same a lot of times I'll get called in for auditions where they want to southern accent and what they mean is actually not us other. TV version of I can't even do that like I. Just sound ridiculous. So I hear you all you have to do is get me on my phone with my mother and in the. That were there it is. It's not it's not cute southern. There's no southern bell it is southern Appalachian Mountain accurate and if you give me going with my parents, it gets a lot worse. It's really funny because I'm the immigrant of this group here like came when I was seven eighty, seven years old eight years old from Korea. I'm the one that's got the big axe. Somehow. You're. Saying that. I just say I do declare that's all I've got. So. You're welcome listeners went maybe one day we'll just do other an access route and then we'll lose all of our listeners. But not today not today. I'm so excited about the story brought for this one eve. It is just amazing an amazing story. So who did you bring for us today? We're going to be talking about Bessie Coleman who was an aviator or aviators trick says they so love to gender things what they called her. So yes, she was the first black American woman and native American woman to earn a pilot's license and she made away just like so many people that we talk about here who are pioneering. Women like made away where there was no way before them and that's definitely what Bessie Coleman did. Yeah and and to hint to tease at what's to come the way she got into piloting I related to Seoul much. And I was like, oh. This is I would have been friends with you. Really, okay. So we have to hear about it when the time comes Oh. Yeah I mean essentially it sibling rivalry, right? I'm. You, know I can release the small bit like she had to be a big influence to Amelia earhart like when I was reading the time line I'll say. Like even though that's the bigger name. Issue Predates. Amazing things before a million actually became a part of this group sells like. Cheese trendsetter definitely I think. That people have brought up talking about her story and that it can come to be seen after we talk about her story and everything is that. She might not have gotten as much recognition as she earned during her lifetime from the people who there were people who support her and who encouraged are but. A lot of the commemoration of came after her lifetime even though that she was a trailblazer and pioneer while she was alive. So yeah. Yeah Yeah, getting to let's do it. Cool. Cool. So she was born January twenty six, eight, hundred, ninety, two in Atlanta Texas. She was one of thirteen children though some of those children did it survive through childhood her parents were George and Susan Coleman, and her mother was a domestic worker. Her father was a sharecropper and her father was also part black native. American. So when she was around two years old, her father moved the family to Waxahachie Texas. So there he bought a little bit of land around a quarter Acre and he built a home for them but in one thousand, nine, hundred, one, her father decided to move back to a reservation in Oklahoma his home stay in the way they. Presented like you know he was dealing with obviously. So many black people were in this house dealing with a lot of racism dealing with discrimination, and he wanted to make a better way for himself. So he went out there to the reservation he moved with his family. To hopefully hopefully. There's you can't escape it like literally anywhere in the world, but hopefully, faceless discrimination and the family stayed in Texas. So bessie went to a segregated one room schoolhouse as a child and she had to walk four miles to get to school and I feel like I. Hear this. So then like also feel like I'm pretty privileged as a suburban cute who could get on the bliss in a certain time you know and go to school but I hear so many stories from my family. You know from other people's families talking about I want this dirt road this. And it took me this long to get to school and I'm like I'm staying at home. That that's the case for so many people back then. and. Also the case for just other people who have long treks you know to be able to get to have an education when Nannette even comes to like having to get on this bus to go to this bus to go to this. But anyway, and that's one of those like i. feel like really storied things to say this person walked many miles to get to school. But that is what she did and when she got to school, she was kind of known for being good at math and her mother Kat and she washed laundry over those years. You had really a of domestic work jobs She did that to support the family and Bessie what help out in those ways and she would also run the household. When her mom was at work sometimes, she even Miss School to help take care of her younger siblings and yes. So that work you know taking care of family raising family all of that, you know to be able to make a living and also to live with some sort of comfort at the time where things that she grew up and we don't have to I mean obviously I don't make any assumptions but like this was a certain time of the United. States this was early nineteen hundreds. Late eighteen hundreds to early nineteen hundreds. So early discrimination, racial trauma, racism, all of that was part of the environment that she grew up in So yeah. So she started saving money through her work to further her education and in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty enrolled in preparatory school at Agricultural Normal University in Langston Oklahoma. So she was there for like a semester and she ran out of money pretty quickly. So she left the. School went back to Texas started doing laundry to be able to make money and support herself. But after a few years, she decided to leave as a domestic worker and she joined her brother Walter in Chicago. So this is around the time you're talking about getting some of that influence from her brothers who were coming back for more who are telling these stories about France and about the things that women had in France wasn't thinking about. A little bit like aviation may have come into some in some ways to influence her reading about her brother's telling her about it. But when she got to Chicago she I pursue like. manicuring she trained as a manicurist, took a job at a barbershop and did manicures there. But these brothers who had come back from the military we're really influencing her. So while she was working as a manicurist when I heard brothers came back, you know talking all these things about what it's like overseas and teasing her about her job and saying that women in France. Has So, many more opportunities but like black women didn't have those opportunities in the US women in France could fly and black women us would never be able to fly, and so she was getting influence in that way from all these stories and so as you say at any you said you have something similar happened to you. What is what's that about? Oh My Gosh well, I just relate so much to sibling rivalry because I have two brothers. And we just. Oh. We were very very competitive. I usually didn't play all these pranks. They played a lot of pranks on me, but I've often said for better or worse. I'm somehow I I would say I'm kind but I'm very spiteful and so if someone told me of one of my brothers was like you're never going to be able to do this. I don't care if I want to do it or not. Now, I'm going to do it. I just I have many instances of things that I've learned. are like. Hobbies that I picked up or skills that I did because my brothers told me, I couldn't do it and they wouldn't play like the you know girls can't do that. Kind, of thing, and I'd be like, no, I will do it. Exactly, you also were good at math growing up. So I feel like this is more part of the story. All. Good friends maybe schoolmates I related to your so. I will learn a language I will go to a different country homes boiler. Jest I. Love that so much cheese like her brothers are like, Oh, you can't do it here and she's like. Really Also, attitude in everything not just guest. Like society in itself should like watch me. Go to great lengths to prove you wrong, right. Definitely that's cool. I like that that connection is there.

While Glenn was anxious to continue bessie had complained about several of the most harrowing rapids they'd encountered she was scared of the river over Marston.

He needed bessie she wasn't allowed to quit. It comes down to Glens temperament and those Sutra wasn't impressed by the Scou- or the hides foolish optimism. He said Glen was decent. Not Domineering. And the woman's testimony on on the tour in one thousand nine hundred seventy one only raised more questions. She said she'd stabbed Glenn in the middle of the night and dumped his body in the river. But but if bessie had left Glenn in the water how did the skeleton and up in Emory colds boathouse. Some had speculated that cold and Bessie might we've had a tryst may be cold shot Glen and bessie covered up the crime with a story about abuse and the stabbing. She'd already been divorced once. Silence after a mysterious marriage her reputation wouldn't survive another scandal but after Glenn's alleged homicide cold stayed in the Grand Canyon with his wife and children for the rest of his life. It was hardly the behavior of a murderer who killed a man over an affair however more the answers became apparent as the skeleton from. The canoe was analyzed. Dr Walter Burke be forensic anthropologist just in Arizona analyzed the bones for clues specifically focused on the bullet hole in the skull. The slog was thirty two caliber fired fired from a pistol first manufactured in Nineteen Zero two so the chronology worked the skeleton was roughly as tall as Glenn as well but the similarities ended there burke B. Took photographs of the skull and line them up with the final portrait. Sutro took of Glen. The facial oh features didn't match at all and the bones were determined to have belonged to a man who was twenty years old when he died. Glenn was thirty in nineteen twenty eight emory. Colds grandson undermined this theory. Further with his unwavering testimony that his grandfather had discovered the skeleton in nineteen nineteen eighteen. It couldn't possibly have been Glenn Hyde still a theory that bessie killed. Glenn persisted until Nineteen eighty-five when author Scott. Thighbone tracked down the woman who claimed to be Bessie in Ohio. He asked her again pointblank if she was Bessie Hyde and what had happened in in nineteen twenty eight. The woman denied the entire story. She'd made the claim on a whim to add some suspense to the tour in her hometown. Town she was known as a big personality who liked to be the center of attention. Her real name was Liz Cutler. Her life through adolescence and in young adulthood was well documented. The chances that she was Bessie Hyde are slim.

Heavily and the high rushing water would have washed away way any further evidence or corpses alternatively in the unlikely event that one or both of the Hyde. It's had made it off the river. They would have perished in an attempt to climb out of the gorge. The Grand Canyon offers little shade from the blistering Sun during the day and the temperatures drop below freezing at night. As their supplies were found in the Scou- they certainly had very little food or water today. Most river guys in historians contend that the hides ran into trouble in the rapids at Mile Two thirty two and ended up in the water. Where they they drowned? The boat simply floated on until it got hung up on rocks five miles downriver well. This scenario is widely accepted. It can never be proven with any certainty without conclusive evidence which is unlikely to ever be found. The tragic honeymoon adventure is still L. A..

Ray tankersley a river guide read remembered being impressed by Glenn Skill. He said I had the pleasure of meeting them. The SCOU- was nothing but a box. But Glenn was a wizard wizard at handling that raft. Adolph Sutro the last person to see them. Alive disagreed with tankers lease assessment of the boat. SUTRO said I. I was skeptical. It was the most inadequately equipped outfit I had ever seen. I couldn't understand how they got so far but not only had the hides made made it so far on the river. They done it ahead of schedule. They had originally planned to finish the six week trip on December sixth but now Glenn was optimistic that they would wrap up by the end of November. They said their goodbyes. To sutro on November eighteenth and continued toward their final stop in needles California California Glenn's father are see Hyde expected a telegram when the newlyweds arrived. But by December ninth. There'd been no sighting or communication from the couple in three weeks. RC anxiously checked for news about his son every day on December eleventh breath. Glen and Bessie were officially late. There was still no news from them on December twelfth so our C. But a train ticket to Nevada. He knew. Knew that. If there'd been an accident on the river Glen and Bessie could be injured or out of food. Rescue needed to come fast or the couple would perish if they were still alive. That is if they were dead. Finding their bodies along four hundred miles of the most inaccessible terrain in North America would be nearly impossible but our C. was determined to find his son and daughter in law when he arrived in California. Nobody had seen Glenn in her bessie. They hadn't made that far so our C.. Headed up river into Arizona to retrace the couple's steps meanwhile he wrote due to the governors of Idaho and West Virginia Glenn Besse's respective home states begging them for help with the search time was of the essence. He argued his. Please soon reached the desk of president. Calvin Coolidge who directed the army to begin aerial searches of the river on December seventeenth and meanwhile RC headed to Grand Canyon village. where the hides it posted their final letters? On December eighteenth. He approached Emery Kolb job. The river expert. Who'd offered life jackets to the couple for assistance? RC told him the time we can hope to find them grows short the next day. An Army plane spotted a boat floating in a calm pool. Thirty Miles downriver. From the last place to hide had been seen Cole had examined their vessel at the camp so he joined another flyover and positively identified the empty boat it. It was Glen and bessie homemade Scou- when they landed back up on the Canyon rim high above the water. Emory agreed to take the boat back down in search the craft aft- but it would take several days to get there. The stretch of river above the boat was treacherous with some of the worst rapids of the entire Colorado River Corbin. His search team made it to the Empty Scou- on December Twenty Fifth Nineteen Twenty eight. The boat had a few inches of water in the bottom but but was otherwise dry and water tied Besse's journal Glenn's rifle there. Leather hiking boots and plenty of food was still stowed away. All that was missing was Glenn. bessie themselves a rope. Lead over the side of the boat into the water. One of the searchers pulled on it but it was stuck uptight in the rocks below it appeared as though the hides it simply tied up the Skauen gone for a short hike along the shoreline but if the couple had left the boat boat they hadn't come back Besse's final journal. Entry was dated November thirtieth over three weeks before the searchers called out for the couple couple but there was no answer. There were no tracks along the rocky shoreline and didn't seem to be a trail or other escape up the sheer walls along the small pool cold and his team tried to free the Scou- but it was stuck fast. They sliced the rope. And one of the men piloted the boat into the river current if the hides had left the boat intentionally the rescuers had just cut their best hope of survival if they return for supplies supplies or to continue the trip. They'd find themselves trapped in the Canyon but emery Kolb was already developing in his own theory about the hides disappearance. He believed they'd had an accident on the river and drowned the rapids along the Colorado River below low hermit creek were notorious a river. Rapid is usually comprised of three parts. The first is the obstacle like a boulder or a series series of rocks that create a wave in the river along the Colorado River obstacles include ancient boulders and rockfalls from the high cliffs above sharp edges and huge granite slabs are piled up invisible under the rushing water. These stones are dangerous to boats and deadly into swimmers. The current rolls over the obstacles in creates a pour over a swift moving rush of water speeding faster than the rest of the river. Her once a boat or a body is caught in the pore over. It's impossible to escape the water in the pore over drops behind the obstacle but but in front of the wave creating a rolling boil of water called the whole objects can get trapped in the whole spinning over and over as the poor. We're over pushes them down underwater and the resulting wave pushes back against the obstacle. Even a person in a life jacket can quickly drown in this vicious cycle. The Rolling Water may take minutes or hours to spit out something. Trapped in the whole objects enclosed become waterlogged Ogden. Heavy dragging them down even deeper dead bodies can sink quickly after being spit out of the rapid and end up far downriver. A famous example of this phenomenon happened thirty years after the hides disappeared in one thousand nine hundred forty nine a well-known river guy named burt lober flipped his homemade boat in the Colorado River. He quickly went under and his body disappeared. Twenty six years years later. His skeleton was found on the rocky shore almost fifty miles downriver from where he capsized his death was a good example of the terrible accidents that could occur on the river with no warning leaving no evidence behind there was no way to predict what might happen to corpses in the Colorado River if the hides had drowned their bodies might never be discovered but if the rapids had been strong enough to wash the couple overboard Lord they should have wrecked the boat to however the homemade vessel was found upright and almost completely dry with a rope. Anchoring it to the rocks presumably a living person would have to tie it off. If the SCOU- hadn't capsized in a rapid it likely hadn't thrown both Glen and Bessie into the river. Furthermore Glenn had repeatedly proven his skill in keeping the boat steady through the roiling current. How have they both ended up in the water? Unable to get back on board the Scou- The answer might have been the boat itself. The giants sweep oars. Were very a heavy and Impetuous rapids they had a tendency to slam wildly against the floor and sides of the Scou- if Glenn lost control all the or could easily have knocked him from the steering platform and then Bessie could have foolishly jumped in after him or thrown the rope that the rescuers I found trailing overboard stuck in the rocks there was later speculation that there might have been a body stuck at the other end of the rope. waterlogged entangled angled in the murky depths on the other hand. If bessie had gone overboard Glen would have jumped in after her. She was the love of his life and he would have done anything to save her. Glenn was also a strong swimmer and there were many places he could have pulled bessie ashore near the section where the Scou- was found with this in mind. RC Hide Wasn't convinced that Glen and Bessie were dead at all. Maybe they were simply lost in the canyons Glenn was an experienced hiker and our C.. Knew that if the boat had gotten away from them he and bessie would try to hike out. But if they had decided to abandon their Scou- and track out of the Canyon. Why did they leave their boots? Even at a healthy pace the couple was still several days. Walk from the nearest help and would bessie really have left her journal behind if they were quitting the river. Why wouldn't Glenn bring his rifle to hunt? If there were forced to walk out there were no clear. Answers and searching hundreds of miles of river canyons would be an exhausting and nearly Lee hopeless task but seventy year old. RC tried anyway. He strapped on a backpack and headed down the Canyon to Hermit Creek on January Seventeenth nineteen twenty nine over the next four days. He walked the river shore from their last campsite. All the way to where the scout was found he saw no sign of Glenn or Bessie when he emerged from the Canyon on January. Twenty First Nineteen twenty nine. He he heard the terrible news. A body had been found in a small dead in canyon off the river. It was a man in his mid twenties who who died of starvation and exposure the newspapers. Were saying it could be Glenn Hyde but the papers were wrong. The corpse wasn't Glenn it was a man named CCA Cutler who had been attempting to hike to Las Vegas. He had gotten lost in the canyons and perished rushed. After a month Glenn Vesey had been gone without a trace for even longer than seasonal sixty three days by this point. RC finally had to accept that they were dead but he wasn't going to stop searching over the next fifteen years our C. went broke accounting for his son and daughter-in-law bodies. He died penniless in nineteen forty-five without solving the mystery but thirty years after RC. Hide's death a young man's corpse was discovered that fueled a new theory and it was found in emory colds. outhouse coming up. We'll explore whether bessie Hyde was a murderer now.

As searchers combed the riverbanks in the decades that followed incredible coincidences and long hidden clues. Fueled theories about the couple's demise the hypotheses ranged from scientifically sound to completely completely implausible with a wide range of witnesses and evidence left as clues to the vanished couples. Fate will explore several of the most enduring theories about Glennon Besse's disappearance some believe that the hides were foolhardy risk takers who drowned in the raging river.

The boat was a flat bottom Scou- measuring during five by sixteen feet. A platform was built in the middle where the boatman was to stand meeting.

Neville Heath AKA The Lady Killer
"We're going to dive into the brutal murders committed by Neville Heath better sown as the lady killer never was responsible for the grisly murders of two young women in England during nineteen forty six at attempted declaim the lives of even more this week will cover nevels early life and his progression from petty criminal to con artist will track Krakow early. Criminal tendencies led to violence has mounting mistakes prevented him from achieving the life of luxury he desired next week. We'll dive into the murders. Themselves will explore the confusion. The British people felt when they learned that a handsome charming war pilot was capable of such atrocious acts. Neville Heath was born Ilford England on June six nine thousand nine hundred seventeen as Neville George George Cleveland Heath his parents Bessie and million heath where respectable middle-class people his father owned a barber shop and his mother was a homemaker. You're never came from a loving home with parents that doted on him but he was born. During an uncertain time in Europe in one thousand nine hundred seventeen eighteen world war one was still a year away from ending and Britain was dreamed the Brits initial positively about their nation's involvement in the war had changed after conscription had been enacted the previous year World War One was also the first time that Britain experienced air raids this this left the country exhausted from constant fear of attacks from above though unconfirmed the heath's claimed that Neville was born during one of these air raids aides though Neville may have entered this world in the midst of violence. His parents did their best to ensure. He had a happy home and a happy home home. It was never was a beautiful child he had golden curls shocking Blue Eyes Chubby pristine cheeks and a darling smile mile. He was the apple of his family's. I by nineteen twenty. They added to their little family unit. With the birth of Carroll. William clearly heath never loved having brother but Carol sadly died of tuberculosis at age to his death devastated six-year-old Neville before Carol Past Neville had been a happy pampered boy he had no experience with loss and therefore must have been torn apart after his brother's death. He was once again an only child Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. Please note wrote. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg the late Chicago. Psychotherapist Jerry Rothman found that after experiencing a child's death there's a tendency for parents to become extremely overprotective towards surviving children and this forces those children to deal with their parents trauma in addition to their own. This can create a repression of the surviving child's feelings. These feelings can eventually be reawakened as adults when placed under severe stress the certainly rings true for Bessie and William who coddled Neville even more extremely after Carol's death. Even as a precious little boy he was already starting to exhibit criminal behavior never would steal steal cakes and other cheap items from local stores and then hide them in his room. Though he was scolded he was never severely punished. Many parents go easy on their children but this early leniency might have taught Neville just how much he could get away with bessie thought the things he stole were odd. God as they were never expensive items or things that he needed. She would say confused. There was no need to steal as he always had plenty at home. It should be noted that when nevels misdeeds were discovered his first instinct was to run away. This suggests an impulsiveness at the time of committing meeting his crimes a cooling off period would follow where he would workout what had happened before coming forward with an excuse and apology but Neville didn't stay privileged only child forever in nineteen twenty eight. The family had another son Michael. Whom they fondly called Mick Neville now eleven was elated. It seemed that he would finally get that brotherly bond that he had been robbed of years earlier. Unfortunately the for Neville he would soon be separated from his new brother. His parents saved up enough money to send Neville to the all boys Grammar School Rutledge located in a London suburb. He was sent away from home to get an education the year after his brother was born. Rutledge wasn't quite as fancy as the country's. He's more prestigious private schools but it was nevertheless something that Bessie and William had to stretch themselves thin to afford grammar schools in those days were heavily. We attended by middle class. Children with private schools reserved for the rich. Even today Britain's struggles with the lack of upward social mobility caused by the presence presence of private schools they remain relics of high status unreachable for those who are not born with money never would constantly yearn for that upper social tear throughout his life. Despite rutledge is solid reputation. His schooling proved to be an area of intense disappointment for him to Neville Rutledge was the JV team and he felt that he deserved to be on Varsity despite his discontent Neville excelled socially socially and athletically in his new environment he enamored teachers and the headmaster with his affable demeanor charm he was made a prefect which which put him into a leadership role it also gave him power. He likely should not have had at the time prefix were in charge of delegating canings. Tainting is a form of corporal punishment but involves a specific amount of hits or lashes with a cane or stick. The number of hits is dependent on the infraction his role of prefect put fourteen year old Neville in control of who might receive punishment and how severe it was Neville's parents had spoiled rather than punished him so the canings and corporal punishment that were common at rutledge were notable. They were likely Glee nevels first experience with violence as a reaction to wrongdoing in a series of studies conducted by Columbia University researcher Elizabeth Thompson Gurshkov found that the only benefit that could be derived from corporal punishment was immediate compliance but it's also strongly associated with encouraging future direct physical abuse and antisocial behavior antisocial behavior is characterized by person's inability to care about what's right and wrong as well as a tendency to ignore the feelings of others not only was never learning that violent punishment brought about immediate results salts but those punishments were also potentially having a lasting impact on the way he developed during his time at Rutledge nevels family moved to a large property and Wimbledon once they're bessie rented out their spare rooms for extra money.

The new headmaster Edward Varnish wanted to model the syllabus to compete with Britain's more prestigious schools aspiration was encouraged in students in particular rutledge was very specific about teaching their boys to speak proper standard English and to learn the mannerisms of the elite as Neville's desire for wealth and status grew.

Sri Lanka child sex tourism very widespread, warns UN rights panel
"Scale of Sri Lanka's child sex tourism industry has reached such worrying proportions at the authorities should take action immediately. You appointed independent rights experts said, on Thursday, noting that some impoverished parents are being forced to sell their children in an interview with you and unused Daniel Johnson veteran, member of the committee on the rights of the child, Renata winter said that the scourge was very widespread. Particularly in the north of the country. Ms winter also commented on the potential huge impact of the UN's budget crisis, which could see the committee, one of ten human rights treaty bodies whose experts work on voluntary basis struggle to hold its next hearing with Member States in September. I think according to the traditions of the country, they think that rape is something that can have only two girls and gals have to be protected, but according to the development of sexual problems made to children. It turned out that quite a lot of boys affected. As well. And that there is a tendency in several counter sensory Lanka's, one of them wear at the sex tourism addresses boys, first of all, and only them girls. And because the boys in this country are not protected by the law, we have to tell the county police, you have to include boys in Europe protection system is what so you're saying that there is no legal definition of sexual act on a boy, but there is for ago. Yes, that's it. And this is difficult because I do not want to say something that they do not know but you could think about the fact that people know that boys are not protected in the county, and therefore they come to the county to misuse boys, so we can be perhaps hopeful that the state party will act on your recommendations. But this isn't a new problem is it? But maybe you could tell me how widespread the problem is more in the north of the country. Perhaps how long has it been going on? And what specifically do you want? From the country in addition to the legal changes to the constitution how long it's going on in this data amount. I do not know I do know that in the north the boys are more attractive for tourists than in the out why it is. So I do not know but at the other hand, I can tell you what we want them to do besides changing the legislation what we want to do is first of all, that they commit themselves to deal with hotels with the tourism industry, and so on to prevent these things to happen. First of all, because if you allow people to come to your country, and if you know that why the come and do not want them to come for such purposes, then you have to deal with it, and you have to deal with travel agencies you have to deal with airports, where you have announcements you have to deal with hotels, who take those children, or if make a ties meant that they have somebody that is what we have to say this plea. Piece to accom- pain in your country. Please assist families that, that are so poor that they have to sell their children. I wanted to ask you about that. The report also highlights the really worrying finding the families are encouraging their children to go into the sex trade. So this really comes down to poverty, and what is the country expected to do to help those who are excluded a marginalized in society that will be the programs to assist very poor families, and especially those families there under the minimum income that is necessary for missing children. So first of all helped the family second, make sure that your children go to school and do not run around and third to something for very small children, who are not yet going to school and still armies you study and last question to you, how much is the government keeping up with the digital world? World and information communication technology. Is there a sense that it has the capacity to cope with the evident demand for sexual abuse of young children? I would not say that say Lanka is known as being super sport in technology. That is a problem, especially a cyber attack cyber bullying cyber information about availability of children, and so on, I do not think that they are up to where the should be in order to, to prevent that. But it would at least be good if they would accept the assistance of the cyberpolice that we have already in France in Paris cyberpolice, who could assist the county to develop a little more in the protection, part of the internet, for instance, I can you tell me how widespread the problem actually is this of child sexual abuse? I cannot give you numbers. I cannot give percentage but I can tell you, it's very widespread. It's one of those counties it's really widespread because parents are assisting the problem because they are so poor that they have nothing else to sell. Finally, maybe we could just turn to the budget issue that everyone's talking about as the committee on the rights of the child, your due to meet again in September. But how much could these budget restrictions that we're hearing about affect your meetings which are supposed to happen three times a year? We'll have they might affect us very heavily because we are the next one in the row to have a meeting in September. And if you do not have it ten six countries, and six other countries that we have to pre view will not be monitored, and that will have a huge impact and not only for this time, because we have been told that it is because of a money issue. But we also have been told that the money issue next year is not going to be better. So what will be the consequence that the money should come from our regular budget. If this is not the case, and maybe some Member States come and say, okay, we are going to bring you now the money for this session, who assist us, then when some other Member, States, come and see, are they are now on the payroll of this, this, and this Member State. So if the so called private assistance assistance from some good feeling friends of the different comedies. Do you know Justice has not only to be done? It has to be seen to be done, and what will then be seen. Then we will always have the possibility that somebody comes and says, yes, you have said something bad about that estate because another Member State has paid for it. That would be a really terrible situation to what extent you already implementing reforms and cost-cutting measures I would say to a Utah amount we tried to be as. Effective as possible. Explain how many you are in your committee. We are eighteen in our committee. We are working pro Bono. I do not know if people know that we are working pro Bono all eighteen of us and all the other members of all the other treaty bodies, our king pro Bono again. So, for us, it's not an issue to say, okay, not only two times become three times, become interact probono, because we really are devoted to our job. But it will be a set before it will be a huge issue if it would not try to be as effective as possible. And we really are trying, for instance, if we have done something we are going to send the information to another treaty body so that there is no obligation. And this issues will be strengthened and will be discussed next time when the treaty body bosses the, the president's meeting each other to find out where else we can have a collaboration, several of the general comments made to. Gather with another treaty body as said, we're trying to give information and get information from other treaty bodies. We tried to explain to Member States, please give us an information about your county that you can use for all the other tweet deposits as well. I will really at a critical juncture. We are really at a critical juncture. Yes. And it looks like and I do not want to be Bessie missed and ended the best mystic note, but it would look as if Member States say the time for human rights deal treaty. Bodies is over.

"bessie" Discussed on WAAM Talk 1600
"Nine. To give this a pig. Okay. Thank you. Smith. One by Betsy coming up here semi to the electric chair. Now, those of us familiar with Bessie Smith, we're talking this is the gold standard, the gold standard of the really cool saloon Shouters. And let's say you could well, you could say wayward women, but the kind of the Jews almost like a black Mae west if you will and here she is with the Christmas. One more one more Christmas tuned to give you before we get out of two thousand eighteen and mainly because they're just unique as opposed to done celebrating Christmas, it's gone until next year. But Bessie Smith right there at the Christmas ball and the semi to electric chair, which you're going to hear a little bit later. Make sure you pay close attention. Well, you never know because I don't do some of these all the time all the way through where she talks about how she's begging a judge to put an electric chair cushy murderer boyfriend or husband, or may and whatever. And she said she slit his throat, and she watched him crawl around on the floor. Whoa. Grizzly man who writes a song like that? Well, Bessie Smith, you're.
Recovering from brain damage
"We've talked about the skin the liver and the heart. But what about when the brain gets damaged Kavita bossy is a strict survivor in his shed her story of life after strike with us, then two thousand fifteen when I was thirty eight years old. I was taken into an e with a life threatening illness severity night brain hemorrhage prior to this leading a happy healthy lifestyle. I just didn't expect something like this would happen to me the night it happened. I. Had come home from work a little earlier with a headache and watch some TV and I woke up then approximately eleven PM screaming with huge pain as if a sledgehammer had hit the back of my school, and I had a seizure then and collapsed. I was treated at sofa trial hospital Manchester with various oppressions over the next few weeks. My life now is updating to this new me, I have trouble with short term memory loss. Severe headaches difficulties with certain noises Costra phobic hiring Zayed's. An also personality shift are now have very straightforward black and white thinking, and this is difficult for people who know me to stand career Bessie who recently published a book on her experiences who room twenty three surviving a brain hemorrhage. Having a stroke can have a devastating effect on your life and recovery especially difficult because the damaged areas of the brain. Paul permanently dead. All they I spoke to neurologist Tom com. Icu of the university of California, Los Angeles about research. He's pursuing to re-grow brain tissue after a stroke key cell types, in the brain the neurons that send the signals really are fixed after a certain age in humans somewhere between two and five years old. We don't get any more brain cells. And so we can't as a result regenerate, new brain cells themselves in large quantities. And so when there is a area of dead brain, you can't re-grow into that area. Normally from the brain next to it because the brain cells themselves, the neurons are what we call in the scientific field post, my Totic, they can't divide inform substantial quantities of new cells. Would you call the scarring than this? These that sells. Yes, what happens is the the area dies. And then some of these cells called glee proliferate and wall off the area of damage. And they participate along with other sales in the formation of scar. That helps contain the damage, but may also have a second effect of limiting some of the repair and recovery. How would that reflect in sort of the treatments you can give people currently as many will know, the there are no medical therapies for recovery in stroke. The treatment is activity based physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy. These are very limited in their efficacy. And so there are no therapies that stimulate recovery stroke, and what we've been focusing on is the science of what the sales do after stroke, and how we might develop medical therapies that enhance that recovery. Right. Yeah. How how is your lab investigating us? We're very interested in what the brain starts to do. And then gets and then get stock and doesn't progress fully. So we've been investigating the molecules that stimulate brain cells to form new connections or the. Molecules that stimulate blood vessels to grow and branch out in the tissue, adjacent to stroke. And our reasoning is if we can understand those molecules, we might understand why they don't produce a more full recovery, and then develop drugs that boost those molecular systems and boost recovery how you testing out the properties the
Elections loom in the DRC
"Will improve things I'm joined finally by Francesca Bomboko, executive director of Bessie specialists in political polling in the Democratic Republic of Congo Francesca. Thank you for joining us. First of all, what are the people running for president of Congo hoping to become president of it's a very large often, obviously dysfunctional country. How much of the Congo can any president actually hope to meaningfully govern. I mean, the the they can actually hope to govern the entire country. And I say that these phone my feel experience even though it's a huge country. Like you said, but like the last survey that we did we actually went into twenty six provinces of Congo more than four hundred and sixty nine sites and each time. There was somebody representing the state at that level. Even though most of them were not pay us oppose. But there were there, and we had to present a respect and we had to decline or entity and see what we're doing. So what do you think that the administrative framework of DRC is far more complex and fumble efficient that is normally thought of that at the very least is encouraging. But when we think of the potential next president of Congo in the decision that voters will make before they choose one. Does it strike you that this has been? About the identity and the persona and the personality of the candidates or of the policies. They're actually pursuing. Mean the vote is definitely a kink. India see, we can say that the food is ethnic. But also at the same time, I think that, you know, the general feeling general mood that we perceive in a survey. You know, is that most people are fed up with the current system. They just want to change. So regardless of which provinces that come from regardless of the ethnical background. They just want to change. And this is something that e- we see throughout the ages the sex of the person that we interview. So these are overall, you know, you're yearning for change that is quite strong and powerful India at the moment. Plus the fact that some of the candidates kind of excluded to participate to the elections. Some of the region I would say most of the region fund absolves, nobody coming from the ethnic background. So they have to to vote for somebody at not necessarily for somebody that belongs to the tribe belongs today overall ethnic identity, so as you've seen this election. What does it strike? You have been the actual issues have been the contests of policy which have have got voters interested, regardless of the fact that most everybody wants to change, and what do you think that I've seen it before? And this is something that come across what drastically in all the seven a result. But when we think that which is the most important challenges that the government will have to face after the elections. I mean, the number one issue is the economy definitely for thirty three percent to seven percent of the people that we of the respondent and. Strangely enough. The second issue is Justice and the third is security, and we would have thought, you know, before doing the survey the security will come. I I think it's overall the economy, as you know, poverty is well, you know, more than seventy percent of the relations are on the below the one dollar poverty line. And the economy's the number one issue definitely looking at the election itself. There has been a lot of nervousness certainly abroad. And I I know in Congo itself about whether this election will be free and fair and above all peaceful. How optimistic are you on the front not that much over overwhelming majority of the populations that we survey in October sixty six percent to be exact think that it's not going to be credible. It's not going to be transparent, and it's not going to be fair. So that's a lot of Senate and has been at searched consistently since the past two years. So this. Very high distrust of the electoral commissions, nonetheless, you know, when we ask them. Do you still a us didn't want to vote? Yes. More than any nine percent of the people wants to vote and winning to go out and vote. So this seems to be quite a contradiction over there. But that's understandable in the actual context because they do really feel that election will be the only to bring about change. And when asked them should we postpone the elections to have a more credible process. More transparence over only majority of the population says now, they don't want
