How COVID-19 has forced cancer patients and medics to juggle deadly trade-off
"Covid nineteen has affected cancer care in all countries rich and poor. Say what should the advice be to cancer patients who still need diagnosing treatment and potentially a coronavirus vaccine to to get some answers and to highlight how health authorities have been ensuring continuity of care. I've been speaking to dr andre bowie from the world health organizations department of noncommunicable diseases in geneva the impact of covid on cancer care profound because it has impacted all dimensions of cancer control from diagnosis to survivorship care and in that regard it has been a high impact and unfortunately very challenging time for the most vulnerable cancer patient seven this is worldwide as it in rich and poor countries. This impact in both high income countries and in some countries is that the case that health authorities have scaled back their cancer care after reports that covid nineteen outcomes are significantly worse among patients with cancer. Most governments are avoiding this concept of. Let's reduce cancer care because we know cancer is a time sensitive disease if we in fact delay cancer care either because of a government order or because of patient choice or because of the situation in team the consequences can be detrimental and for this reason. We've seen governments spun favorably to the extent that they are encouraging cancer patients to pursue care right. So let's put ourselves in a patient shoes a cancer patients shoes so they should carry on going to the hospital even though they might have heard somewhere that if they catch kobe they have a greater chance of being at risk. Is that right. That is the first starting point. As you rightly point out is the understanding bed. Some cancer patients are at higher risk for covid related disability or death if they can track the virus but because it has to do with immunosuppression the exact mechanism for which the viruses causing this increased risk of death for the cancer population. We are still trying to understand from disease perspective but one of the primary drivers is weakened immune system and the likelihood that the virus will take a greater hold spread more rapidly within the body and by extend to cause greater damage. That is the hypothesis but we are also trying to understand which cancer patients are at greatest risk is not all cancer. Patients are experiencing you potential harm of covid and cancer to the same extent. For example you've noted at some cancer patients that have what we call blood cancers or human to logic cancers are those that are experiencing grizz as compared to solid or the oregon based cancers like breast colorectal that may be lower risk but the exact likelihood that each cancer type incurs greater risk is something that again. We don't have a clear understanding because the data are still not well available for us to understand who is at greatest risk. The general message though is we know as a general group that cancer patients are experiencing greater disability and death from covid and because of this there is a tradeoff at many cancer. Patients are making sometimes in isolation but importantly in discussion with their healthcare provider. Understand what is it the right course of action for treatment.

A Big Dose Of Perspective With Jack Kornfield
"Jack. Great to see you and thank you for coming Great pleasure thank you. Dan also for having me. It's time when we. I think we need to all come together and use our best wisdom and understanding of how to navigate. I completely agree and so let me. Just start with your mind. What are you doing to stay even in your own mind. Of course i meditate some but more importantly arrested in place that has a lot of spaciousness in it and a kind of trust. I'm old enough at age. Seventy five to have seen revolutions. Common go and difficulties arise in pass. Have and i also see that. There's i guess it was martin. Luther king talked about the moral arc of the universe being long but advance toward justice. I see that there's ways that systems also regulate themselves so whether it's the pandemic that we are in the throes of that is really causing enormous amount of suffering and loss whether it's the political disruptions in the capital and otherwise were just the calls for racial and economic justice that we needed for so long. I feel we're in a evolutionary process with its fits and starts. And i think about people like one gary mata who won the nobel prize for the greenbelt in east africa. She started by planning one to ten. Twenty fifty trees got other people to do. It eventually was thrown in prison on. I think that's a requirement for nobel peace laureates mostly And ended up planning fifty one million trees in changing a lot of the face to be africa or or or ellen sirleaf in manga bowie also nobel prize winners who said their country. Liberia used to be known for its child. Soldiers in had these terrible civil wars and now it's known for its women leaders and so there is some way in which just as the green sprouts come up through the cement in the sidewalk. There's something about life in. it's also the human heart that wants to renew itself. And so i rest back in kind and loving awareness to say yes. Let me turn my gaze away from the from the needs suffering the things to respond but also to hold it in a much bigger context justice. I agree that universe in the world is breathing. And that's how i keep my mind on a good day not the mean. There are bad days a bad moments but mostly my heart is pretty peaceful but you know there are things. I get a call from my daughter. Dad you know. This terrible thing is happening. At the nonprofit she runs for getting asylum for all people whose lives are endangered. What do i do our calls from dear friends. Oh my family has covid. So i'm deeply touched by these things and responding. Sometimes they really affect me. And i can feel the pain of it. You know or give worried but with all of that. There's a rounded a field of loving awareness of spaciousness entrust. That gives a much bigger picture and there. I'm just going on back away trying to answer your question and also spread out a little bit. When i was a monk training in the forest monasteries in southeast asia as a buddhist monk the main forest temple i lived was in a province adjoining. Both laos in cambodia was during the war in vietnam and laos cambodia. So we would see fighter jets going overhead and bombers and you know in some of the branch monasteries you could even see flashes from the from the bombs and people would come visit us. I had friends who were working in. Vietnam laos people that i knew as i had been working on medical teams in that ray calm river valley saying what are you doing sitting on your you know. There's a war to stop. There's things we need to do and my teacher would say. This is the place where we stop the war.
Interview With Dan Westergren
"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.
Enby People Don't Owe You Androgyny
"What we're talking about today. Is this idea of and rajini and that Tran or that trans nonbinary folk. But specifically non binary folk half to feel the pressure to conform to androgen e Now we're gonna be talking a little bit about that. But how do we define androgen. I'm sure that we can find it in a dictionary but like what does androgen e what is the definition of androgen e that we can work with that. The audience can sort of understand a little bit easier. I always think of like the the way androgen. He is generally portrayed in media where it's like a. It's generally like i think of you know like bowie or someone like that. That's you know very like and it's usually usually are either an Assigned male person or an aside female person with a smaller chest. It's usually about being very small and kind of like lake Ethereal looking. I guess thing and it's a it's more about like not having any defining gender caracteristics in your appearance than like actually being any any you know. Form of non binary Me like a good example. That i like to Exactly what kind of looting to somebody. Purely neutral in their appearance right. So oftentimes that means that they're lending or attributes of the two sides of the binary. Right so somebody be in a suit wearing make right you know for the rest of piety. That's a combination of two sides of one coin that everybody else kind of sees whereas you know internally especially for folks who are non binary sometimes. It's it's not about the appearance. It's about how you feel or how you act so i know like for me I enjoy wearing a tux in getting dressed up. But i also really enjoy playing on my skintight floral chance or you know or I do do make up every now. And then and sundays depending on how the winds blowing. I really enjoy that or sometimes. I don't care you know so. I think that there needs to be understanding for the audience that what the world thinks is android genie versus what i think nonbinary people think is android need. There's a slight deviation there In that the we don't have to work so hard to show the world androgynous in the way that you expected right like i said i don't know if that helps the audience understand. What makes it even more vague. But i think that's kind of yeah. It's that like that like It expects you have aspects of both ends of the gender spectrum as opposed to like it they want you to be like right in the middle of it as opposed to like like ashley was saying. It's a whole a whole bag. And i think that was for me. roadblock came to was that i am very comfortable being sam presenting like You know i. I like where closed from the men's section occasionally and just kind of grungy but like overall i'm presenting which really was Like even even in the queer community. I felt like i. You know i like appeared as a woman and i wasn't sure how to make that distinction and that was it ended up being. I just talk about and say it all the time which works. But yeah i felt like because i wasn't interested in appearing like a man and especially because i i wasn't you know necessarily thinking about any actual medical transitioning that i was excluded from that world The as i was like well. If i'm comfortable appearing like this then. I can't actually mean it. I was gonna offer one other examples. So i mean some of the examples. We've talked about about what the world sees androgen. He said like bowie stuff of that. Where it's like taking a little bit from both sides Another really good example. I mean If anybody's watched the show sheron a huge fan of sheron. I think the queer community inherently lows. She raw for reasons. Hail yeah Double trouble in a perfectly neutral character and it was it wasn't even it wasn't ever questioned or considered you know what side right of the historical binary that you know that person would all on and the characters only ever used day to address double trouble so you know dole troubles like a perfect example of somebody. That's perfectly on that neutral line that doesn't waiver to either side. And even that's a form of androgen that i think is a high expectation but it's another good example of just perfectly right there in the middle and so i figured i'd offer that or that helps the audience
"bowie" Discussed on Pantheon
"Debbie harry went on the muppets anyhow i remember in those those type of cultural touchstones because the that was what you watched on. Tv and so now to come full circle and have the opportunity to work. You know obviously not with david bowie but with people who knew him either as childhood friends like george underwood or jeff mccormack or burnin do hers to lift with david bowie amine it's just really quite quite astounding to to be involved in in this sort of project to see these images in a new light and the cotton the comment to a book that you know. I think the book is terrific. I mean it is. It is as good as i hoped it would be well without giving too much away I keep picking it up and going through it. So i feel i think i feel. You're here So is there a favorite period of that bowie. Means to you or song. Or you know. And i know that's a hard question because you know if somebody asked me today it may be one thing and asked me tomorrow. Maybe a different thing. Yeah you know i mean. Are we at home. We listen to the albums quite often on vinyl it is it is definitely be a common ground between my husband and i in a sense of. We both love david bowie. So we're not sure wonderful thing to build a relationship on yeah oxygen. Say we've got a few and that some and you know. I think it's a little bit low heroes berlin. Yeah yeah and. I think it's i don't i don't know i had well. You mentioned you mentioned some bunkers early on you. Know the the ramones And so that that tells me a little bit about your age bracket in in rock and roll And the and let's face it that that berlin period hearkens It's a clarion call to so much that comes afterwards. The you know the tire new wave in romantic genres are born. Out of the album's so i can see where where that speaks Most to to you and you know it's funny. You know those those. Those albums were not commercial sellers. They had some very good Critical praise but they were definitely kind of off in their own world and weren't necessarily thought highly culturally at its time but as you know the stories come to an end and we've all been able to look back it does seem more and more like that's the peak bowie certainly not commercially. I mean certainly influential early is at that period there so i i can understand but i think like was all artists you. Maybe you buy that. That album mets commercial success. But then you go back to the back catalogue. And i started to buy the backlist i go. You know you buy. Let's dance because baxter album map that moment but then you go back and then you go back. And then you figure out iggy pop and then you look at roxy music lou reed and the velvet underground. You accept loads and your unto television. Yeah you're you're thinking. Where was i you know. And let's face it. This is a guy who constantly. Reinvented himself You know is. He is the template For that you know. Madonna lady gaga there. Those two would not exist if it wasn't for now what he created in that period a of The early seventies through Through through most of the rest of his life certainly. Until you know. I don't know if you've got to see the reality too. I i got to see bowie. Three times At three very distinct periods in his career. And you know Loved him to death. From the very moment i saw him You know a I saw him On donkeys rock concert to nineteen seventy-three. You know i'm probably twelve years old into me. There is a rock and roll space alien. That's what i want to be done. and You know was a fan for their. But each time i saw bowie there was a it was interesting. It was it was definitely a character until the last tour that reality tour. I walked away going. God i feel like i really saw the real david bowie terry. O'neill say that. He said that he treated david. Like an actor. Yeah but when he was on stage when when terry was shooting bowie onstage. He looked at it like it was a stage performance And that that was you know when you see the the hamlet like you know what the skull cracked actor. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and he picked up another. I mean obviously the lindsay camp mime period of helped develop that now. Let's face it. The english always been a an understood that Theater is theater depends does. Doesn't it doesn't matter what what you're doing you know. You're you're putting on a show. American rockers always tried to find some sort of authenticity And i think that's a big break between You know those that that understood okay. This is show business as opposed to that. I mean there is definitely for both no doubt but but i i think it's those that understood that this was a professional process a fared better survive ably tried to turn it into some sort of authentic nature. that you pull out on stage For for two hours. Yeah so tell us about the process and how this is different indoor similar to books that you've done in the past well. This is by far the most ambitious project that we've done normally. We'll do one photographer. Four photographers may be six. So here twenty. By and i could have been thousand. I mean at some point stop but that said we made a short list so a group of us just sat down and wrote all separately a list of our dream dog offers and then matched it to see where we over lack in that that was our lay a list and that soon after and how big was the team it was forum us for okay so there's four Submissions to the list and so So then yeah those that lined up the best. You went after i right. If all horrible said the same name they'd be moved to the next round I went top down. I went one by one. Will you please be a part of this project. Well who was the first photographer. The icon team contacted insecure siptah. So keita okay. I just felt he was going to be. He had to be in that book. He had to be just for his work. Yeah yeah he. It is definitely one of the more fun sections You know i am. I was glad you were able to include Masayoshi keep because japan plays such a large part in the bowie evolution. You know let's face it. The guy was a bit of a collector in the manner of a decorator crown. You know where he he goes and finds these spaces and just sticks sticks him on his back somewhere. And while in the nineteen seventies. You know this look that was created seems alien we now know. A lot of that. Inspiration came from a.
"bowie" Discussed on Pantheon
"It's great that you bring it up angela. Bowie is first wife because yeah you make it very clear that she was full artistic partner you know especially in the creation of his look and in creating the sort of salon that they had at the house i've lived in when he wrote hunky dory and the scene they create created around themselves and then he moves on to a woman eva cherry. Who's an african american backup singer. And she's sort of his muse slash partner for the next phase when he went r&b and pulled it off to a degree that no previous english rockstars whole generations of them had tried to imitate american rhythm and blues and bowie inhabited it in a way that nobody else had yes. I felt myself very lucky to track down a cherry. I mean she kinda surfaced later on. I think she's in the five years documentary. And then i'll take. She's speaking to many people now but she'd been off grid for awhile and took a lot of tracking down and i that is part of the adventure of the kokrea's spending months you know tracking people damaging from to talk to you maybe to forbid and then coming back to them later on and on so know. I love data. She was a really intriguing character on then yes to map. The hope here read where he discovered colossal alabama. And then and then aver as well. But i mean. I've got to say my favorite stuff from that album is stuff this less r. a. b. You know it would be something that fame. That's more abstract. You know rather than him doing cover versions of of knock on wood and stuff like that. Which isn't to my taste But hey you know. That's the thing is catalog. it's just so varied and he was moving so fast that if he didn't like that something else was coming really fast from the horizon but But you know in itself is is just a fascinating period because it's just like a pressure cooker and again what he's doing well doing he. He's moved from these kind of schooled musicians. All you've got to work stuff to sonny being in a place where is right. let's go. he's come on. let's do it. In the way that chain rounds musicians would have done it and my god you have to be on top of the game to do that and he did you know and i think that's why he searched out because he knew is going to be hard and it was going to stretch him so again. That period is very very exciting. But but he's moving really fast and he's getting a little bit crazy absolutely crazy document that but i wanna talk about carlos elmore too because he was a legit. You know african american puerto rican funk guitarist he had played with james brown he'd played with gamble and huff. He met david bowie doing a a song for lulu on a session and then haggled with freeze and bowie's team for a. He didn't come cheap you know. He made sure he got his money. What do you think. He survived with bowie. For so long. I mean was it that kept a lower profile or was more adaptable. What was the secret of carlos. The i think his people from say the colossus very buddhist. And so he was very calm. You know there's something. Very zen about him is a lovely guy to hang out with and he just kept coming up with..

You can use these opportunities without alcohol to really be present and those moments and appreciate everything that's memorable and real about them. I always say the same thing about birthdays and weddings. The event is to celebrate a person doing something really special so make them what. You're celebrating because it's not all about us and getting drunk last week. I asked everyone to write a list of things. We like about the holidays and use that list as a resource and celebrate those things so find things to get excited about. It can be whatever you want. Bring ingredients to make a really cool any drink with like twelve different components get dressed up where high heels that you don't have to worry about falling off of bring a game like look for things to make a party fund because parties are supposed to be just that fun a great way to stay busy and distract yourself if you need. It is to help the hostess or the host or the person who's having the party go cleanup napkins offer to wash plates offer to help i guarantee you that. If you're listening to this podcast then you have absolutely been a party hosts worst nightmare at point in your life so use this as an opportunity to give back and level out your car a little bit. Here's a simple one. do not i repeat. Do not offer to be the designated driver. Especially if it's a party that might go late if you're feeling freaked out and you need to bail. Then you don't need a reason to stay put. You should always have an exit plan. You know and being someone's dd cancels that out entirely the couple of times that i've offered to do this. I ended up staying at a party way too late when i really just needed to go home. It's twenty twenty. We have uber and left for a reason so let people use it. You know a big part of getting through the holidays without alcohol is learning how to deal with our most triggering loved ones and having the tools not to drink over it boundaries are really big deal boundaries are a big deal for example if you know that someone at the gathering relentlessly pushes shots on you. Then no you're boundary ahead of time if that person offers me a shot. I'm going to say xyz if they keep offering me shots. I'm going to make my exit. You know you create a boundary beforehand. And if someone crosses the line you already know what to do to stay healthy and sober. You know it's just about having a plan had time. Another example is if you have a typical pattern. That's a reason behind your drinking like if communicating with your parents tends to be tents and. Let's say they're always saying something passive aggressive and you've never spoken up about it but instead you've always pushed it down and drink over it. Well this is the time to find a boundary not saying that you need to confront them during christmas and try to resolve like twenty five years of old trauma but you can say something like i need to go get some fresh air. I'm gonna go for a quick walk around the block. That's a boundary. You know when you decided not to engage in an activity that triggers you to drink or maybe it's one of those all day christmas parties that starts at eleven. Am and goes until midnight where everyone's been drinking for like thirteen straight hours. Maybe you've always stuck around because you thought that that was expected of you and you never had the words to speak up this year. Consider telling everyone beforehand that you've made plans for the second half of the day and you have to leave at three o'clock maybe your pet sitting any need to go home and feed the dog. It's up process of planning ahead and saying if this thing happens then i will choose to do this thing because it will keep me from drinking.

He did not seen donna with her. That's just the way it is. angie thought. No one's fault not that it mattered anymore. After all as old as angie sometimes felt she knew that she still had a lot of life left to live. David was offloading his yet. A new family and was still making music. Still filling stadiums as her ex husband moved definitively into rock and roll legend territory. Angie hardly felt like she had an identity of our own and there is a part of her that still felt like the nineteen year old. She'd been when she first met david dreaming of outer space beings of light. Her relationship with jrue faded away and she met someone else deciding this time. Maybe it would work better with someone outside the lime lay. His name was michael. He was an engineer and that was perfect. She was forging a new career as a rider to parlane a juicy memoir into more thoughtful studies on gender and sexuality. Maybe the future would turn out to be bright after all.

She hadn't seen david her son who went by dunkin and wasn't acclaimed film director and over thirty five years. She still thought of him occasionally and if they were happy she was happy for them.

That was part of it just as she the snow she heard a knock at the door. Angie she heard the producers voice do you have a moment. Angie walk to her door and it of course they moved into the hall into a very quiet spot may be one of the only places in the house where there were no cameras. Were no one else would hear them. David bowie passed away today. The prettiest your shed if you need to leave the house we understand. Angie's head was spinning. No i think i'll stay. She replied after a moment that seemed like an eternity. The producer gave her a pitying. Look without you ought to know he said. Let us know if you need anything. He walked off leaving angie alone in the hallway. David bowie dead once generation or so people came around that were so larger than life that you forgot that they could die that we all die. Even though they hadn't spoken in over thirty five years. Angie had always taking comfort in knowing that he was out there somewhere.

They were young and old men women. Gay straight the fluidity and mystery of david himself was a part of what made his music resonate in the way that it did. Anyone who had ever felt like an outcast in life could be a little bit of themselves in him and the world always seem to make a lot of outcasts year after the ziggy stardust album came aladdin sane on. It was a song that david said he'd written about her. It wasn't exactly a traditional love song. Still it was called the prettiest star malir. Ix described how they would rise together. It was impossible not to be moved. Violent furthermore it confirmed andrews perception of herself as driving force pushing david to think bigger and bigger but she was starting to realize the great risk. She taken interning her husband into the primary creative project. If they separated he'd walk away with the whole endeavor was him it was. She fought nearly time to move on to the second part there agreement making her stars though was her turn. She tried she modeled. She even tried act. None of very far. Angie could help. David reaches full potential. Maybe that had to be enough but it meant being kind to him indefinitely so he was two years old now talking and showing signs of his own unique personality. They took him on a tour with them to japan where he rode with him on the bullet train to harare and napped while his father tried on the spectacular kabuki outfits made by japanese designer. It was nice to feel like a real family. Angie thought in the next couple of years. David's fame continued sore throat tours of america and it wasn't just the music people were drawn to the spectacle of getting dec- him alive for the duration of the show. You really forgot that. Beneath all of the costumes and up and set dressing was just an ordinary group of men. Really felt like you. A witness talents lag head group of aliens in ziggy stardust era. David always ended the show with the song. Five years ziggys warning at the earth only had five years taught. Sometimes it was hard not to feel like that was so these days angie caught. You never know you had to live every day like it was the last by the mid nineteen seventy s angie. Bowie wasn't sure of a lot of things. She wasn't sure where david said. She wasn't sure where she stood. Whether their marriage had a shot of blasting how much longer david could keep being a or his. Ziggy goes to america persona insane. And if not what would he do when he his career next more success he had the more. He was trapped being anything by himself. Not that much earlier. It seemed like no can bring them down. David and his band were on. Top of the world was fucking with his head. The shifting personas vying for space with the real david and the fine line between genuine success an exaggerated projection of it a lot of the phenomenon. Part of it had been cooked up by the publicity team. Limousines fancy hotels and pursuing tag refers. Mobs of fans followed them. Wherever in the pantomime of something that could only be compared to beat on mania. Not there weren't fans there most definitely were but it wasn't anything. My public formative. The reasoning was that. If david bowie was perceived to be a huge star others would wonder what kind of rock they'd been living under the a records and buy tickets to his concerts to see what all the fuss was about and while it had worked with degree. David starr was bona fide. There was no question about that. There was also one reality that they had to contend with due to their lifestyle excess. The expense of the grand theatrical show is and general mismanagement they were broke. It was one maurice and for him to escape into drugs music another persona fairs or some new obsession. David jones who maverick he had been was more and more remote as the seventy s wayne to a close. The relationship that angie had missed david became like a and more like bad roommates argue vigorously if they acknowledged each other at all and they were both seeing other people while they always had stopped fighting about it or carrying much at all about what the other was up to. They made their own plans. They've quit trying to make it work. David was too strung out on different drugs. Most of the time to have an actual conversation about anything. When the time finally came to divorce the primary question was what to do about their son and it was obvious who the better parent would be. Their son was nine now and he plainly preferred his father to his mother beyond that. Angie told herself that may be the responsibility of taking care of him would force david to get his act together. And when the divorce was finalized in nineteen eighty david got full custody and got half a pounds and a nondisclosure agreement. Going to live with you. Zoe asked his father as they discussed it all in the living room. David gave him a weak smile. This was the right choice. Andrew was sure whatever shape david within. She had to acknowledge that she'd never felt like a proper mother. Angie swallowed suddenly feeling like an intruder by now she managed before shutting the door. She didn't look back. The next decade seemed to drift quickly through her. Angie tried to move on with her life. But that didn't exactly keep pro away from interviews with who wanted to ask her what it was like to be married to david. Bowie wants her. Gag order expired. She also kept his name and though many accuser of trying to capitalize on her ex-husband's fame. That wasn't it. She'd helped create gave it bowie. She'd worked for her name. She kept it even after she met someone else a musician whose similarly fashioned more memorable stage name drew blood from the much more boring and average andrew. Lipka angie did our best to start over with him settling in tucson arizona even as she got older after she had another child a daughter named stassia. She found herself thinking about the life she'd left behind. Throughout a series of reinventions. David star never really waned with his music and image omnipresent. He was never far from her thoughts. She didn't regret things necessarily but she still felt avoid. Sometimes she thought of her son and hope that whatever he in david were up to. They were well often. She was asked why she didn't fight harder to hold onto any sort of custody of sally and while she understood where this question came from she was never going to be one of those women who used child to get back at her ex.

It was their comment on rock starting itself this heart early in the performance. He'd put his arm around his cars. Mick ronson it was a simple act but a calculated warren.

The Future of Healthcare with Teladoc Health Chief Medical Officers
"Well the country in the world's talking about it. I want to start with one year colleagues Shop and i want you to listen to so much. Answer this question to Jennifer schneider She's quoted as saying the following things. Virtual healthcare is growing. It's getting to the point now. You're not going to hate it. What does it mean to you when you hear. A clinician say to a group of patients were consumer class. That you're not gonna hate this anymore. What comes to mind. And how does this relationship solve that problem of disliking the care you were getting going to the big parking lot paying the seven dollars and a park having to walk through the labyrinth dodging david bowie on the way to your clinic and finally getting there to see who you needed to see what comes to mind there when you hear jennifer say that it. It's a great summation of. What would i have felt that has been broken. Healthcare for past fifteen years. As i think we also s consumers in this marketplace obscene seen how content has been reorganized by the internet how communities have been reorganize how entertainment commerce more recently even banking. When was the last time that you actually stepped foot in a bank. And so this this notion of you're gonna drive twenty to thirty minutes to this obstacle or building and then ended up waiting an hour at least I think comes an hours like a a gift to see physician. Pretend to fifteen minutes us. We'll give you a whole bunch of information that you're not gonna process And send you on your way driving back down twenty or thirty minutes in some cases i haven't come back again. You know in two or three days or a week is you've got to get lab tests. Imaging tasks don seem so You know sort of disconnected from how we live our lives today in terms of the immediacy of the things that were able to get it all at our fingertips and so I think this is what jennifer was talking about it. I think you alluded to just so nicely is the experience of inter connectivity through now wearable sensors software that personalizes methodist to you And always on connectivity Through the cloud Starting to make its way into healthcare and covid nineteen is only accelerated people's view in notion of what's possible in healthcare that today was just a method or a vision it is absolutely accelerating ed From everyone we've been speaking to And of course you are walking this walk on the acceleration happening before we're ready So it's really an exciting time. It also can be a harrowing right if you're not prepared for loot when you hear jennifer say consumers and patients aren't gonna hate healthcare anymore because they're they're access the can get what what comes to mind view especially in terms of telecom. Bunga sure so. I think that people often talk about. How virtual care makes access so much easier and they often frame this in terms of a conversation around what you might consider medical convenience And i'd like to just draw out the issue that it's not just a question of convenience. It's really around the quality of care so on telemedicine side we see many individuals who seek care and they end up having pretty serious medical problems like a recent case where the individual Actually had some big chest discomfort in our little shortness of breath and ended up having multiple blood clots in his lungs and he would have just probably waited it out at home with really a life threatening medical condition and on the longo side. You're really talking about individuals who for the first time in their lives are taking care of these problems around blood. Sugar control blood pressure control. So they're really getting the care that they need because we've made it easier for them and have lowered a number of these barriers which are traditionally put the place and may care most difficult and as you might imagine during the time of covid. All of these issues have been highlighted. So if you are at home trying to do your telecommuting also trying to teach your kids at the same time who might be doing their own remote learning. It may not be the easiest thing for you to decide that you need to take you know a bus to a train to train to bus in order to get to a medical appointment to have somebody review your blood sugars with you so to make that care possible particularly in this time just makes all the sense in the world.

The Experience That Leads 3 Women To Say 'Being Black Is Exhausting'
"Earlier this year, NPR asked our listeners. What is it like to be black in America? Now to be clear. Lots of us who work at NPR have our own answers to that question. But more than 500 people wrote in and a lot of them said it is exhausting. As a black woman. We carry our community on our back. But our backs are cracking and we're tired and we're exhausted. I've come to understand that being black is exhausting. It's exhausting and un affirming. I called up three of the women who gave that answer. Who said they're tired? Asia cook is 38. She's a criminalist with the state of California. I always had this thing about growing up where I felt this need to do everything by the book because I didn't want to be a stereotype. Well, she's black, so it figures. And I remember I had a difficult time when I found out I was pregnant with my twins because Their father and I weren't married. I didn't want the assumption that of course I wasn't goingto have Ah, baby Daddy, Or, of course, I was goingto not finish school or or whatever it wass, you know, Always trying Teo stay ahead of people's assumptions. And it's tiring. It's exhausting to keep up with that. When it came to telling white friends or white colleagues. You all weren't married. Did you hesitate to do that? You know, I didn't really actually became quite obvious quite soon that I was pregnant, but the colleague of mine stepped into my office and said Congratulations and I was like, Oh, thanks and you know, and then, they said Sydney and I just want to thank you for you know, choosing life and gave me stats on abortions and how it was so much higher for women of color in over 50% of them. Choose to terminate the pregnancy, so I just really want to thank you. And I just thought like eyes that's really happening. Yes, it was really happening Next. I talked to Maria Ramirez. She's 31. She's the director of equity initiatives in you, Steinhardt. The day after I learned the news about George Floyd's death, I immediately experience trauma. And it was no one was speaking about it at work. It was like business as usual. And here I am dealing with trauma. It was really, really difficult. Did you go to your colleagues and say, Hey, at I'm messed up about the fact that you guys aren't talking about this. I actually did have some support. But given that I work specifically and diversity, equity and inclusion, it was like everyone was already leaning on me to be able to come up. With some kind of response or support to the whole community. There are other black women that would be an associate professor of applied psychology or something. And they would also be expected, even though it has nothing to do with their job to take on the extra burden of mentoring students that are black, the extra burden, forming the diversity committees and sitting on them and advising Their leadership on you know what we could do in this department? When everyone has access to the same resource is it always falls on people of color because they're black and Milo Howard is a 28 year old teacher and consultant in Bowie, Maryland. Milo When you're feeling that exhaustion what are the ways in which you find yourself behaving that? You think if I had time if I had space if I wasn't so tired I would prefer not to be doing this. I would probably say for me, it manifested. Almost zoning out, you know, and spaces where I would normally engaged Maurin spaces. Wagner normally would participate in conversation or share my ideas. There's no energy to tap into the things I normally would be passionate about. It's a lack of interest in things. It's a lack of, um Desire to even say anything anymore in a workplace seeming spaced out or disengaged or uninterested can really affect you professionally. Do you think that your exhaustion has stood in your way in the workplace? Absolutely. After seeing how some of our colleagues who are not black are moving, going everyday and conversations. I remember I was sitting in a meeting and I just finished like Watching the news had like a deep sob and I tap into the zoon Kon Somebody's talking about his beach house over the past weekend, and it's like Really Is that where we are, Do you?

"As a man who was born in the late eighties, my exposure David Bowie was either through the hits showing up in movies and TV shows or other people covering his songs. Space Oddity is very popular song right now because of NASA and SPACEX launches along with Bowie's life on Mars Space Odyssey was also a huge influence on defied the conchords humorous Song Bowie's in space version of David Bowie's lost in space just like the character major Tom. Donahue all. Thing. Off. In by IT'S Not Good. I'm Jami hang out with the MACHACA. Base oddity isn't the only time that we hear about Major Tom. He's an interesting touchdown for Bowie throughout his career character major Tom First appeared in Bowie's second album. This album was first released in the UK under the title of David Bowie in Nineteen, sixty nine not to be with Bowie's first album two years earlier also titled David Bowie Bowie Second Album was also titled Man of words. Slash Man of music for the US release nineteen, sixty nine, and then the album was reissued in nineteen seventy two under the title space oddity in the track space oddity major Thomas drifting away from the earth and losing contact with ground control. In The grass. For me I thought it was just a classic song and the story ends there. But boy returns to major Tom in nineteen eighty with the song ashes to ashes. It. Starts with do you remember a guy that's been in such an early song. I've heard a rumor from ground control. Oh No don't say it's true. The course we're ashes to ashes is quote ashes to ashes Funk to Funky we all know major Tom's Junkin during out on heavens high hitting an all-time low. The song ends with my Momma said to get things done you better not mess with major Tom. This implies that space oddity has a second meaning and the song is about a drug trip. It's not unreasonable that ashes to ashes as Bowie looking at space oddity and saying that he himself was a junkie ten years before. Between Space Oddity and ashes to ashes. Bowie was very busy making almost an album a year. Just look at this. The main sold the world released in nineteen seventy. Hunky. Dory and seventy one, the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars and seventy two Aladdin Sane and pinups in both in seventy three diamond dogs and seventy four young Americans and seventy five station to station in seventy, six, low and heroes and seventy seven and lodger nineteen seventy-nine. It makes sense that in nineteen eighty with scary monsters super creeps Bowie was ready to close the door on the major tom part of his life. Let's take a step away from Bowie's involvement in major tone for bid in nineteen ninety-three German synth pop musician Peter Schilling released major Tom Coming home as his own tribute to the lost astronaut standing. She All systems are go. Are you sure control. As the The countdown stock. In. Two Thousand and two Kirby Ian Andersen also known as KIA released. Mrs Major Tom. You guessed it a sad song about major Tom's wife who stuck at home here you Sheryl Crowe covering it on a William Shatner album. Draw. Okay let's move away from the KOTEL writers and wrap this up with Bowie himself. On January eighth two, thousand, sixteen, sixty ninth birthday. But we released his final album black star two days later on January tenth, but we died from liver cancer in his new. York City apartment. Black Star is always twenty seventh album off the top of your head. Who Else can you name? Who has twenty seven albums wait? But we wrote and recorded blackstar knowing that this album would be his last. The music video for the Song Black Star features a dead astronaut who's bones drifts toward a solar eclipse in physics black star is a transitional phase created when a collapsing star is close to reaching singularity and space time ceases to exist within it although the star has died at this point is been transformed into something else altogether in its energy will continue to be released indefinitely. If Major Tom Represents Bowie's career and life in the spotlight. Then perhaps Bowie sent him into the next world for his next adventure. After all matter cannot be created or destroyed only changed and remade into something else. Name. Very. Awesome..

Was One of the most influential musicians of the last fifty years and he was an expert at hedging risk. When we talked last year Schrager explained how David Bowie turned his song catalogue into a bond. Boys interesting and that when he was young. Just starting out got his first record deal. You know usually what they do is they give you a an advanced and they own your royalties and that's actually sounds horrible and this is why musicians always say they're poor even when they're successful but it's actually fairly good restraint 'cause most contracts or sign up for person we'll never make money, but they get to keep their advanced. So the IT music companies just taking a long shot that your world is worth anything because all they aren't. But David Bowie when he was young, he's like I'm make it and I will take a smaller advance knew we didn't have much money and this is I wanNA keep my royalties because I'd leave I am not upside. We'll go to me and he was right obviously became David Bowie but then when he was in his late late forties early fifties. He was really concerned. It was like Napster was coming out and he has like I don't think royalties are worth much growing new. This industry is going to totally change apparently, he just has amazing foresight, the music industry but when he was young about just potential so we securitise his phone catalog, he turned it into a bond. So then all of a sudden he took up money and gave the upside and someone else Chris Sale. Thanks for listening. We'll see you next time..

"And then they turned the slaves in to the government and say we caught these illegal slaves, being smuggled in and the reward the government gave them was half the value of the slaves, and then the government would auction off the slaves, and they would buy the slaves at auction basically get subsidized for the price of the slaves because they'd get you know half of the value of them as a reward. And then once they bought the slaves at auction. They would be legal slaves in the United States and they could go on and sell them to other people. And it also worked because Lafitte a lot of his slaves were elderly, an old and sick. And so nobody was going to buy them from the pirate, but they would buy the slaves turn them into the United States and get half of the value. Because they were valued by weight, they'd still get money for these slaves that were actually valueless slaves, and the government would just be stuck with them so like. This was like the slavery con that that Jim Bowie made his fortune why? Yes. This it's like Robin. Drug dealers, but worse. 'cause there's not. Is You still a terrible person? Yeah, it's I i. don't really have a word for it, but like slavery is one of the worst things a human being can do, but in this time it was legal, and so they found a way to take this horrible legal thing, and also break the law while doing it like. It's. Slavery Shady. How did you do that? It's a gift. It's now. Billy. Won't a legally commit tax fraud by sneakily importing slaves in, and then turning them into the customs, officers in order to take advantage in a loophole in the law won't do that billy. Guess the products and services that support this podcast. So we're back, so the bully boys spent months engaging in this business of buying slaves from a pirate, taking them into the United States smuggling them in in the turning them into the government and true to form Jimbo we had the most personally violent task of the whole enterprise Emmett a quote now from William C Davis's book three roads to the Alamo quote. James himself did the most dangerous work of conveying the contraband through the swamps and bias, bringing them in lots of forty at a time as many as one or two men could handle, although the blacks were chained Bowie found little need for fetters, the frightened Africans knew nothing of the country and had nowhere to go, while they were told enough of alligators, snakes and hostile natives to the to know that. That safety not happiness lay with the Bowie's on one trip. A few slaves may have escaped not to be found again before the rest. James Bowie felt secure that they would not running. He even told the feet on one of his visits to Camp Ichi that he rarely lost a slave because he was armed, and he knew they feared him. Instilling fear and others was something James Bowie, did with ease. Is Not with ease like with pride. He was right, yeah! This gift that I'll kill you. Yeah! I'm really good at scaring chained up. People with a gun as I lead them through unfamiliar. Territory. They look at me and without question. They know that I will murder that. Yeah I don't give a shit. It means nothing to me. It's like Lincoln. Yeah AC! Down Gift. Issues to? Now James was very much taken with the slave smuggling business. He saw it as an easy way to make outsized profits while committing what he considered to be a victimless crime. The state made money. The pirate made money and he made money. No one got harmed. No I not one human being harm yeah yeah. Now one thing Jim. Bowie was capable of doing was nursing a deep and abiding love for knives. Obviously, Bowie is most famous for the enormous blade that bears his name which will be talking about in detail here. The GM yet. The old gym knife. You know the old saying. You GotTa Jim on your hip. Never go hiking without a gym. So. And I have to confess here that. My. Favorite kind of knife. I love. There's nothing like having like a fucking pound and a half knife on your hip, and just really fucking up a piece of wood or A. Severed skull of a cow, whatever you gotta fuck up with a knife when you're hiking around in the middle of nowhere, Bowie knife can do it and and I feel it's a shame that these knives have gotten tarnished by the name of this slave owning monster, and this is the story of why, because he did not invent the knife em, but I feel like he probably. Did it justice he did. He did and we're going to talk about why. His knife got famous here so. The knife was initially the knife that he got famous for was initially from his brother Probably you'll hear a couple of different stories about how he got his for the first Bowie knife from a couple of different people, and it's not really important to get into each of the different stories in detail but the the the details we can synthesize that they all have in common. Boil down to Jim. Bowie received. received a really fucking big knife, either as a gift, or as a purchased, he commissioned himself from a blacksmith, and it was made by a local Louisiana Blacksmith, to be significantly larger and heavier than most hunting knives of the era were so he just gets an unusually large knife, either his brother hasn't made for him or he as a guy to make it, but you get winds up with this huge. Fuck off knife. HOBBIT SEWER! It is a habit sword. Yeah and. His brother John would later claim that he bought the knife for Jim and John had. Financial motivation to making this claim because the Bowie family got rich off of the fact that their name was attached to a famous kind of knife. And John also had a vested interest in making it seem as if his brother was like a knife-wielding prodigy like an artist with a blade. And the reality is very different from that now j, Frank. Dobie, historian, who studied Bowie and produced a pretty fair biography of him in nineteen, fifty seven noted. Big Jim Bowie in conveying smuggled slaves armed himself with three or four knives, so that he could transfix any captive who tried to break away jerking out was easier than reloading a horse pistol at the muzzle. Both Jim and resin could keep several knives moving in the air at the same time without allowing one to touch the ground at twenty paces, either sent a knife clean through a small wooden target. So. That's probably untrue, but these are the kinds of stories. People started to tell about Jim Bowie that. He was like yeah, like a master of the Blade and the reason that he got this reputation for being an artist with a knife is because of something that happened in eighteen, twenty, seven, the infamous sandbar fight. So. It's amazing to me because a lot of people get stabbed to death in fights, even today and nobody cares about those fights, and they're kind of written down as like the result of thugs and criminals just having access to knives but when a bunch of white dude stab each other to death it. This is what happens. On a sandbar, yeah on a sandbar, so it's good to know that people have always been doing nonsense on sandbars in the Gulf of Mexico. Yeah Yeah and this sandbar. We'll talk about the sandbar so. Jim Spent most of the eighteen twenties engaging in a series of land, Cons Arkansas and basically he he, it committed dozens of acts of fraud and basically sold people land in. This Day and Arkansas Business Business Yeah. He would sell people land that he didn't have any right to in the money and fuck off. And, He did that for decades general rule? If you're wondering what Jim Bowie was during during a period of his life where we don't have a lot of detail, he was scamming people into buying land. He didn't own. So, he did this a bunch in Arkansas and it pissed off a lot of. and he also like the only way he was able to get away with. It is that he relied heavily on banks to lend him the credit to do land speculation and at one point in the late eighteen twenty s he was infuriated,.
