"Demi Lovato version of this from the inauguration special Better than Bill Withers original. They both sound pretty good. They're both good in their own right. It was pretty good, though. Yeah, yeah. Another 24 hours of cold weather, But they still have some sunshine today and there is hope yesterday. Did you notice around five o'clock in the evening? It was still light. It was a beautiful sunset last night, very colorful. Well, I was thinking there's something wrong if you're seeing the sun rise and the sun set the same day I I could do it out this sunrise. You could tell me about it or just send me a picture it Z 12 minutes after seven o'clock, you know by now that we like the health stories, and especially The studies about what to eat. And what not to eat, right? And you know, you know about fish. We should all be more fish, right? It's brain food and all that, but I was looking at this recent study. And it was pretty interesting. Um, this research found a link between Omega three and slower cognitive decline. And the researchers compared brain volumes and people who consume fish with those who didn't and found that Baker broiled fish is associated with larger gray matter volumes. Independent of Omega three levels. The lead researcher. It was an assistant professor of radiology in neurology at Washington University School of Medicine, said our brain volumes change with improved health and disease. The more neuron is you have More brain volume. You have And the researchers compared the fish eating habits and Emory scans of participants who were in their late seventies on average, and they found that compared to people who did not eat any fish. Those who ate fish on a weekly basis had larger brain volumes. In their frontal lobe, which is important for focus. And in their temporal lobes, crucial for memory, learning and cognition. Relationship between fish and brain could be down to fish having an anti inflammatory effect, according to the doctors, because when the brain responds to reduce inflammation, you can affect brain cells. In the process. This means you can improve brain health and prevent Alzheimer's with something as simple as the dietary consumption. Fish. Make the brain as resilient as possible to dementia. The researchers were saying, start to eat fish at least once a week when you're in your twenties or thirties. Now you tell me too late. Oh, I did have. I didn't have filet efficient. MacDonald was quite often when I was young. I don't think that council does it. It's fried. It's fried cod. Right, but it could have some Omega three in there. Also, consumption of oily fish, including salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel has been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. I actually last night I didn't know what to get. My wife was out and I was on my own. And so I decided to get a shrimp dish from a nearby restaurant. Carried out And I know I am crazy. Admit it. I actually was looking. I Googled I was trying to figure out whether order shrimp or chicken And I actually Google what's healthier shrimp or chicken? Let's see. The shrimp was actually healthier in many ways, except it has more cholesterol. But It had less fat. So I learned I were to shrimp and pasta dish. First. The past is probably right there. Soft Target was tomato sauce. Yeah, that's right. What's wrong with me? I need help. The To call my psychiatrist today after the show 7 16, and we have extremely local news on the way momentarily see what a second here Make it a habit conveniently behind me here. 01 of the stories will talk about is the double doors New home.

"Is NPR welcome back the bulls eye I'm Jesse thorn this week we're looking back on the life of bill withers we're hearing my first interview with two thousand seven let's hear another song from bill withers ain't no sunshine one day this time one was there a point when you felt you it I I don't want to use it the phrase made it but was there a point when you felt like you had made it through that final and that you were at achieving this thing that you had kind of convinced yourself that you are capable of achieving was it when you made your first record have your first show you know one of the funnest analogies that I've ever heard this guy was talking about he had a blind friend he became very angry with the blind for it he says I can't take it anymore I'm gonna check is then the guy says you can't do that he's blind he says we don't know because I'm gonna tell him who's Kickin is so when that happens you know it zero did they let you know it's not like you could have a hit record you don't know about you know you would prefer the Howard Hey read you've broken through it's how did it compare to what you had built up in your mind how it was gonna be like what when it happened I mean you you're your first record was a was a big hit and it was a tiny record like it was a record that I I read you made and nine hours of recording time you mean the album was easier first the first album yeah so I'm and but the first album had a cute couple huge hit singles on it and it and do you know so it's this tiny thing that really worked out the way that you would hope that it would work out yeah and I wonder how did how did the actual experience of having hit record being a famous musician compare to your idea of what it would be like there is a gratitude oh man finally something that I thought I could do worked out because it was a lot of stuff that you thought you could do that didn't happen you know you know when when you did make the football team or the girl you thought was flirting with you you know really had some men are or you know coming from where I come from you know when you're a kid you think you can jump across this creek and you miscalculate and then you got to go home and change you know because you got mud water all over you so you know there's that day then a lot of things change socially you know what I mean I mean there's a business reality to it you find out that the soon pretty enormous some pretty pretty mean people in this business defusing them maybe seen the movie yet yeah I watch it on Friday and one of the things that I was really amazed by and in watching you in the movie is fat you know the first the first twenty five percent a third of the movie is you and all these amazing musicians you know getting on an airplane and heading to Zaire to do this concert is you and and the spenders and so your cruise and the fine you're all stars and you know they're they're like playing club is on the airplane and you know it's it's really amazing in and of course a James Brown whom Muhammad Ali and don king and all these people are on their way over there no they were already well I'm not they were there you go there you're not on the same it is not is a Maryland but everybody's it's sort of like this process of everybody going over there and and everybody has this everybody has a really different tone to this on this trip yeah I mean and and there's like you know James Brown is James Brown by that point I had spent the last fifteen years being you know one of America's greatest entertainers and approach the whole thing like now I'm the world's greatest entertainer and and your you're very quiet in in the footage and you're almost likes look like you're just taking it in and I wonder what it was what it was like for you to be in this kind of crazy gaggle of brilliant performers going and doing something you know ten thousand miles from where you live what it felt like to be well people have different approaches you see I think you approach things according to your personality and James brown's personality is different from James Brown the latest James brown's delivery I was dancing and you know and and as fascinating is to totally enjoy mine was sitting on a stool with an acoustic guitar you know so that in itself would dictate the differences in the approach and the behavior so that that's just not my personality you know to me there's a scene where your eating looks like maybe lunch in your sitting between Muhammad Ali and I'm checking if I was like it was it was the most amazing thing to see and and all I could think is what it must be like to be you sitting in between I'll I'll use the word that will have to bleep on the radio but basically histories to greatest talkers and it's kind of taking it all in so I wonder what was it like to be to be there with these with these guys who are just the amazing champions of bravado and be you know still bell it's in attaining you know it's entertaining because you know people pay a lot of money to see them and you get him for free you gonna Ross phone and it's just you know it's just hanging out I I happen to be sitting there eating and everybody came in and and join me at the table it was fun you know Hey you know here you got all these characters and personalities and stuff you can ask for any more than that you know I'm Jesse thorn you're listening to bullseye we're replaying my conversation with bill withers from two thousand seven he died on March thirtieth of this year at the age of eighty one I mentioned in my introduction that you are basically will fall on retired from music I'm twenty seven years ago what do you think you were so done with it when you were done with it I'm not done with it you know which is a you know but I would think that you know if you want to live inside ourselves right if you got people asking you over and over again why are you doing this or why are you doing that you know most people won't have to go to the U. disco so people ask you why you don't know where you're going just tell him so you know to come here to chew on that for awhile but I mean I've I've written stuff I had fun writing stuff Jimmy Buffett stuff George Benson has a new record coming out the road to song you know that there's stuff to do but maybe I may have I have another option I'm a songwriter you know when I had some kids I didn't want to be in Philadelphia and my kids are here and so there's just this cookie cutter perception that somebody makes up and you're supposed to foot fit into it I don't have to do that I have choices you know I can take my own approach do you enjoy it's a performance part of it like I mean if you were if you were talking about doing a you know a show once a month in Los Angeles or something like that is that something you think you would you would still get a kick out of probably but it's not a practical thing to do you know this that there's a business reality that it costs money to put people together to put people together to play one show it's not profitable it's not a good business plus if you have an option you know I'm a song writer I mean I don't need any equipment I can do it out of my head I can write it on a piece of napkin or tissue paper or toilet paper you know for that matter you know people you say you will you shouldn't worry about it you know you let me handle this and you just go do what I tell you in whose world whose world you know I I I used to have a little poem in my mind you know the manager's son goes to Yale and the blues man son goes to jail C..

"Twenty now KCRW thanks so much for being with us this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm Elsa Chang and a merry that was Kelly facemasks everybody's talking about him for a long time health officials said most people did not need to wear them now some are recommending covering your face in public but using tightly wound scarves or homemade masks to save much needed medical masks for health care professionals yesterday president trump announced new actions to help with the shortage of those masks they're called N. ninety five masks they're the gold standard for protective gear and here's Camila domonoske is here now to explain what this means Hey Kamala hi Mary Louise so there's all this controversy over N. ninety five masks and the and the president's announcement that he's going to use the defense production act against three M. three M. being a company that makes all kinds of things but including these masks what what what does this mean the president says he's going to use the defense production act against them right so did the defense production act actually gives the president a range of different powers so he can force the company to produce something that they don't normally produce he can manage distribution of our product he can organize the supply chain or crackdown on hoarding in this particular instance it's all about distribution of this order forces the US three M. to give priority to the U. S. government when the government places orders for these masks and three M. says that the government is also asking the company not export masks that are made in the U. S. to other countries which is something that China did back during the worst days of its crisis okay what is three M. said in response well first they said they are already working to boost production and have been for a long time the company also warns that there is a danger to blocking exports because if the US wants to protect U. S. access to U. S. made masks the US actually imports most of its masks so you can imagine if every country tries to do this tries to keep its own masks for itself there's fewer masks available for the US to buy three and CEO Mike Roman told CNBC that that's started already we've already seen export restrictions export restrictions out of the E. U. export restriction daughter Asian country and that has been the response to even the idea that you could leave their country T. V. E. that's personal protective equipment so that's one response three M. also says their humanitarian implications to stopping these exports hi like what what humanitarian implications well dream says it's the only supplier of these masks to some regions and this is something I heard from other people as well I spoke to Thomas tag of direct relief which is an aid group disturbing supplies and he says that he understands what people would ask why we wouldn't keep masks in the United States if you live in the United States and the need here is so great but he says but I think it's also true that the countries that have very little to begin with are looking at this wave of covered nineteen cases coming with no protection so there's a lot of different needs that they need to be balanced why can't R. three M. and other companies right what can American companies just produce more masks and a time of great demand well they can and they are this is happening it's happening very quickly actually a lot of companies are ramping up production including three M. the government placed a huge order for masks like N. ninety five masks and there's other kinds of PP as well Ford and GM in G. E. R. making surgical masks and face masks there's a lot of different efforts that are underway all right thank you Camilla thank you as NPR's Camila domonoske bill withers the sweet voiced baritone behind such classic songs as ain't No sunshine and lean on me has died withers was eighty one years old according to a family statement given to the Associated Press he died Monday in Los Angeles due to what the family called heart complications NPR's understands the issue this has an appreciation bill withers wrote and sang a string of emotionally plainspoken songs that became iconic and and the leave me with this was born in the coun in West Virginia on the fourth of July in nineteen thirty eight he was the first man in his family not to go into the.

"You know, Marvin Gaye James Brown or Bill withers, you know, beyond what would have been a jet magazine article in thirty five years ago, very often when I look at mystic Heli and what he individually represents. It's as much an indictment of who he is as the human being as it is for people who have supported him. And that's where you for me. It was the final break. I'm one of those folks who accede thinks that when you look at his body of work. There is some art there. Right. This short isn't just dude who was trying to make hits. But at some point the fact that he becomes such a compelling compelling figure that folks continue to go back and support them. That's much an indictment about us. And what we're willing to accept in our artists as it is as much an indictment of who. He is there's this area in especially in popular culture. I think where transgressive behavior is expected sometimes even condoned or championed, you know, sex drugs, rock and roll, your cooler because of that you are a more authentic because you actually did hold up a gas station and dealt drugs as a rapper. Let's say or as a rock and roller Jimmy Page's not diminished at all by the fact that he had groupies, and you know, a relationship with a fourteen year old girl in the early seventies. I mean back in the day that kind of behavior seemed to be more a stamp of. Oh that that's true rock. Enroll Brit you you're arguing against that. You said that's you don't buy that. At all. I mean, I I think that made that might have, you know, made sense, you know, thirty forty fifty years ago when that was sort of how we expected, you know Rockstars to perform, but I think that the way that we listen to in consume easy because a lot different than it was back, then, and I think, you know, in large part, they were, you know, a lot of artists like that were sort of playing into specific tropes, and it was presented as a specific way to fit into a rock and roll ideal. I think people aren't necessarily relying on that anymore when it comes to the music of their consuming in which case, you know, we don't need to. And we shouldn't be accepting, you know. Okay. Well, they're just going to do whatever they want to because that's is expected of them as, you know, a rock musician or as a rapper or things like that at some point. We have to sort of ask. Okay. Well, what are we going to continue to allow to accept is it okay for these people to do it? But then in real life. It's not okay. Like, where's the line? So you're saying, you know, standards change where we perceive things change. But does that wipe out for you, the work of j? Brown or miles Davis or even Picasso who was, you know, not abusive of of women, and and and his many wives. You know, the list goes on and on of artists who've had these really transgressive even criminal backgrounds personal histories and yet made great art in either in spite of it or because of it. I'm not sure what the real answer is. I think that that are that was maybe made before I was sort of you know, aware of what the artist was doing for me. I've kind of drawn that line where I'm like. Okay. Like, I grew to love it and understand it before I sort of had that perspective or knowledge of what was actually taking place. But I think now as receiving, you know, artists even like the group, you know, power bottom. You know, that was that was a very swift sort of, you know, as soon as we found that out, you know, everyone wants to sort of like, well, we're done with them. Like, that's just that's just how it is. So I think that we're learning and we're getting better at it. I don't think that I'm perfect. I don't think that anyone is perfect. So you think people now are more quote unquote woke yes. And the internet. It makes people aware Mark is lavender that we have seen in. Indie. Rock we've seen several conflicts of power bottom.
