90: Epilogue to the Wild West
"So because of how rapidly technology's changing. I mean it's basically like it's the carphone of its era. You know it is sexy for like five minutes and then it's gone it's done that's really well put thank you. I mean we have discussed these things before but that like that valve olympic boom. It's a if only if only that up so recorded. Yeah that'd been it's okay. That's what the applause for. And i think that the pony express is another good example of non just how quickly this technology changing but also how we remember the west and how we remember the frontier because the pony express like greg said is only here for eighteen
Interview With Paul Farmer on Global Health Inequity
"Paul farmers it professor at harvard medical school chief of global health equity at brigham and women's hospital in boston and the co founder of the organization partners in health began by asking him to describe the global health care situation in his own words. Well right now. We could focus almost entirely on the setbacks. You know one of the biggest problems we faced all over. The world is that with a shutdown. Obviously people aren't able to readily accessed their their care. What if they have cancer. Whatever they have diabetes have severe hypertension. So those are ranking problems. I think to anybody who's involved in global health. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. A lot of the efforts that we have engaged in to address. Social determinants of health are also being set back economic educational programs cultural endeavors employment opportunities There's been a major contraction. An anti poverty efforts overall. so it's going to be Troubling reflection on what's happened this past year and a lhasa worried it's gonna be projected poured into a futures. Will
Managing Atrial Fibrillation With Lifestyle Changes Dr. Christine Albert
"Thought we could start by discussing some of your major contributions to the management of atrial fibrillation even since my medical school days. It seems like the emphasis. On lifestyle management for diseases such as atrial fibrillation has increased exponentially as we learn more about arrhythmia mechanisms and now we specifically screen patients for sleep apnea diet alcohol use et cetera. So from all of the landmark clinical research that you've conducted over your career. That's far could you. Maybe summarize for us. What you feel are the biggest takeaways whether in eighth hundred prevention or in any of your other areas that sudden cardiac death. Thank you when i started doing. Research on the epidemiology of heart rhythm disorders really wasn't an emphasis as you say on. Risk factors for h. fibrillation or sudden cardiac death. And then you know a group of us not just myself but amelia benjamin in the premium study and patrick eleanor. We all started to get interested in looking at atrial fibrillation as you would cardiovascular disease and some of the major findings are really related to lifestyle and how it can impact each relation including body mass index. And wait and wait reduction. We've done several studies. One who first authors tetreault who's also electro physiologist at brigham women's hospital and she published a very important study in jack. Where we showed in bunks women. Even being slightly overweight had elevated to risk of fibrillation. And then if you lost weight you lower that risk. And in addition some of the other research we did was around. Exercise and showing that exercise is beneficial to atrial fibrillation. But as we all know too much. Exercise can actually have an adverse effect and this again was a study that was done by tony acer who was also an electro physiologist and his now at nyu worked with me for a while. So both of those manuscripts were very important. With regards management of atrial fibrillation. In addition we also published one of the first studies looking at alcohol intake and h fibrillation. Now there have been multiple multiple studies showing that alcohol is related to atrial fibrillation. And as you know a randomized trial now that shows that if you abstained from alcohol you lower your risk of atrial fibrillation so all of these studies are not just by myself but multiple. Investigators have really changed the practice where we as clinicians think about lowering. Risk factors as electra physiologists event and approach sanders. Work in australia really took it to another level by actually doing clinical trial in showing that reduction of weight and modifying risk factors lowers incidence of atrial fibrillation. So now it's really one of our pillars of treatment and it is rewarding to see something go from observational research to clinical trials in actually to

Tiger Woods "awake" and "responsive" after surgery for injuries from crash
"After suffering serious orthopedic and leg injuries in a single car rollover crash in L. A. Technically it was an SUV. But I spoke with Dr Michael Weaver, chief of orthopedic trauma at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, who says they did emergency surgery on his muscle tissue. As well. The reports were that they had to release the fashion or the tissue covering the muscles of his leg. Oftentimes in a high energy injury, there could be swelling. And if the pressure inside the muscle builds up too much can A risk the blood supply to his leg and foot and so often in that situation, that tissue is released to release the pressure and that allow the blood to flow that suggest to you that he was in danger of losing his leg. I'm not sure that he was in danger of losing his leg, but I think it is an indication that this was a very severe injury. Human women's doctor Michael Weaver. Thank you for your time. He was going right into the O. R to perform a surgery when we caught up with them. Woods team issuing a statement saying Woods is awake, responsive and recovering one Oh, eight.

Extraordinary Boston Patient Offers Surprising Clues To Origins Of Coronavirus Variants
"Are trying to learn more about corona virus burien by studying the case of one extraordinary covid. Nineteen patient and this patient was a forty five year old man who admitted to a boston hospital last spring doctors at brigham and women's hospital treated him he got better and he was discharged but his infection never went away. This is a of an extraordinary individual who was readmitted over the subsequent five months for recurrence of his covid infection and severe pneumonia. Dr jonathan lee. One of the doctors who treated the man says he was not a so-called long. Hauler a person who clears their covert infection but has lingering after-effects sometimes for bunce. This man says had living growing virus in his body for one hundred and fifty four days. That is one of the remarkable aspects of this case and in fact he was highly infectious even five months after the initial diagnosis re spoke to npr science reporter. Mike lean duke left. Who picks up the story from here. These says the man's immune system wasn't working normally. He was taking any suppressive drugs for chronic illness. So his body couldn't fight off the virus very well but we also wondered if perhaps the virus was taking advantage of this unusual situation with so much time inside the man. The virus might have the unity to test out different versions of itself in find. More infectious versions. So lena's colleagues begin to examine the viruses genes. How shocked shocked because of virus was mutating very quickly inside the man's body these mutations allowed it to evade his immune system to escape detection by antibodies when i saw the virus and the viral sequence. I think i knew then that does that. We're dealing with completely different at a potentially important completely different because the virus had a whole collection of mutations not just one or two but more than twenty scientists had never seen this before during the whole pandemic. The in his team published the findings in the new england journal of medicine. The report didn't even make big news. That was november twenty twenty then about a month later a new corona virus variant causing international concern is. Npr's david greene reported. Scientists this past december detected new genetic variants of the virus one in the uk one in south africa and then later when in brazil guess what these variants have in common with the virus in the boston patient. A sudden collection of multiple mutations in a combination. That is worrisome. That's jeremy lubin he's a virologist at the university of massachusetts medical school he says these new variants look remarkably similar to the virus lee and his colleagues found in their patient. They the same but they share important characteristics. They both have about twenty mutations and they have ones that make the virus more contagious in so right now. Lubin says one hypothesis is that the new variants the one from the uk south africa and brazil arose inside. People like the boston patient people with these long term infections and who are immunocompromised because their immune system was not working and normally they could eliminate the virus and over time the first and acquired a collection of mutations that otherwise did not insieme. let's work in other words. The virus this long-term infection as a testing ground to try out different mutations in c which one's v the immune system become more infectious in eventually spread more easily around the world.
Nuclear and Multimodality Imaging Coronary Ischemia
"Welcome back everyone. It's time for car. Dealers go nuclear with today's discussion about the multitude of clinical utilities of nuclear cardiovascular imaging within the broader context of multi modality imaging. We are just so thrilled to be joined by our imaging nerds colleagues doctors. Eric hut elbow skinny and wild jaber erica.

And i actually met all during my interview at ccf when he was achieved I blame him. For recruiting me and six more latin americans to my residency class all of which actually became very close friends on one. My husband so thank you all for guiding my steps and really molding future so got. Thank you for those kind words. We have great times back into clinic.

What everybody's waiting for the people in gray hair sitting in now. Beautiful offices in universities threatening us web to waiting for them to come up with a verdict every four or five years guidelines versus you taking this down to the level of practicing and cardiologists toward actually in training or early career and disseminating information. Because you can reflect. Shine the light on. The most important issues is face every day clinics and in the hospital home floors globally with the pandemic and then you can also actually at transcend all these rigid structures.

Massachusetts coronavirus vaccine sign-ups plagued by problems as Phase 2 rollout begins
"Medical researchers who work remotely have been rolling up their sleeves to get the covert vaccine. Meanwhile, seniors are waiting on the sidelines not yet eligible. Massachusetts has one of the nation's largest hospital workforces, and officials there have decided to put all of them at the front of the line. Gabriela Emanuel of member station GBH in Boston reports. Carol Helper set is 82. She's been in her apartment just outside Boston. Since the beginning of the pandemic. Nobody comes in. Nobody goes out. I become more and more despairing and lonely cut off some human contact helpers that has a long list of complex medical issues. The most urgent one. She's going blind, She says. She's desperate for ice surgery. But in order to safely be in the hospital, she needs a vaccine. The vaccine would change my life. It would give me the future for weeks. She's been desperately trying to figure out how to get a shot. I am still Totally Totally in the dark. She's watched with jealousy as seniors in many other states have started receiving vaccines. She studied data from the CDC finding Massachusetts in the bottom half of states in per capita vaccinations. But perhaps most baffling is seeing healthy young people get inoculated before the elderly and the sick. We're seeing just a huge number of people get vaccinated. Who I think you know, should frankly be way down the line. Michael Mina is at Harvard School of Public Health, the other people who have nothing to do at all with Cove ID or with Patient care. We're really with the hospitals. They just happen to be employed by a hospital, and thus they can get the vaccine. Ah, few things are happening here. First, the federal level nationally, vaccines are being distributed to states based on their total population. The federal government has told states to prioritize certain groups like healthcare workers with lots of hospitals. Massachusetts has lots of health care professionals at the front of the line and effectively means that the elderly and vulnerable people who might need the vaccine first will generally be pushed back the second factor state and hospital level decisions. Here. The health care worker category has been defined to include all hospital employees. Those in research labs and telemedicine in HR, including people working remotely. Paul Bettinger oversees the vaccine rollout at the Mass General Brigham. He says his hospital network needed to bring in some of those working from home during the first surge. They called up researchers and administrators and others in the intensive care unit listening for the alarms of ventilators because the federal surge ventilators that we had wouldn't plug into our alarm systems now a third issue, individuals have been flaky. Dana Farber Cancer Institute sent out a mass email saying quote we have had far too many researchers not show up for covert 19 vaccinations over the past week. The result of the email says, is vaccines that may have been wasted. These challenges have been compounded by communication missteps and technical glitches, and Massachusetts has admitted hundreds of thousands of doses are sitting unused in hospital and pharmacy freezers. Governor Charlie Baker has announced. Those over 75 will be eligible on the first of February, and he's hoping they'll have enough vaccines to meet all the pent up demand. For NPR News and Gabriella
"Accounts of near death. Experiences can be polarizing indie. Most often happened while people are unconscious so researchers are incredibly limited in what they can actually measure. They must rely on human testimony to fill in. What's actually happening in other words. Andy ease exist near the intersection of two seemingly contradictory ideas science and faith which is why after a neurosurgeon reported in n. d. e. it became central to the conversation in nineteen eighty eight. Dr eban alexander began his career in boston at one of the most prestigious hospitals in the country. Brigham and women's well working as a neurosurgeon. Dr alexander simultaneously target his father's alma mater. Harvard medical school in both institutions. He had access to some of the most cutting edge medical technology in the world. Soon dr alexander became an expert in a non invasive. Surgical treatment called stereo tactic. Radio surgery a procedure that uses targeted radiation to address medical abnormalities. In the brain it can even eliminate tumors without needing to open the skull in his own practice. Doctor under-used stereo tactic. Radio surgery to treat cancer. Epilepsy mentoring nerves and tangled blood vessels and for nearly a decade in the field of medicine. His star was on the rise until two thousand one when an elderly woman from arizona. Whom will call. Rose contacted him to remove a benign tumor in her brain. Dr alexander was one of the few surgeons in the country capable of performing the procedure. So rose flew from arizona all the way to boston but she didn't receive the treatment that she expected when rose arrived at the hospital orderlies placed her in a wheelchair and brought her into the operation. Room apparently no one spoke to her or explain what was happening. After doctors strapped into a device rendering it immobile rose demanded to meet. Dr eben alexander. She was about to go under and he had yet to introduce himself mere minutes before the operation began. Dr alexander stepped in front of her said. Hello and assured her that she was in good hands then she drifted into unconsciousness and the surgery began when rose woke up in the icu. She couldn't move the left side of her face. Dr alexander never warned her about the risks associated with her surgery and though he'd successfully eliminated her tumor half of her face was now permanently paralyzed. Ultimately rose filed a lawsuit. Her lawyers asked to see the paperwork she'd signed before entering surgery. But apparently dr alexander could only produce a single sheet of paper. It didn't even have rose's signature on it. Apparently dr alexander had misplaced a number of her forms. The case was eventually settled out of court shortly after. Brigham and women's fire dr alexander from their roster administrators have not stated whether or not the dismissal was related to the lawsuit. Either way dr alexander moved on to work for umass memorial medical center located in worcester massachusetts. Where apparently his careless behavior continued during one operation. Dr alexander reportedly left a small piece of plastic inside a woman's nick. In addition to the pain this caused her she needed another intensive surgery to have it removed then in august two thousand three umass suspended dr sanders for an error made during an operation. On another patient's brain stem the specific details surrounding. These punitive measures remain confidential by early two thousand seven. Dr alexander relocated to lynchburg virginia and began work as a staff surgeon at lynchburg general hospital but his lack of professionalism and care continued
Why Your Employee Experience Probably Sucks
"David america. Welcome to the podcast. All the way from snowy utah and sunny texas luli rear very happy to be here man. Be on the show matt. Good to have you on getting out of this. Thanks for sending the thomas auden at this time of an normandy. Doing other things here. we're we're gone. You're having us said we would do anything for podcasts. You have a great. So he goes from palestinian pros rundown on what you guys do and power. We also While wearing contacts Little bit into this boy while we're gonna be talking about after that -solutely awesome power still in pros. We are a coachee accountability organization. So we actually do training in coaching exclusively in the home services industries so heated in air electrical plumbing and in a few outliers as well but really our our main goal is to to help companies grow by doing that. They win more moments. They while more customers in really ultimately they make more money. So it's it's not only just about creating the our experience for the customer but what we've discovered we'll talk about. Today is really take care of the employees and you get the engaged employees that employ experience. Will you know late over an influence what. The customer experiences parasailing pros. We've been around for eleven. Years was started by brigham and dickinson in brigham. I've actually presented with from stage. Thousand burgum is great We bring her boss. Of course we love. What am i going to say. Getting actually service roundtable event in sydney dag comeback was years ago. Yeah sorry definitely has changed over the years. So we have about forty five coaches that work with us and we should do training we do. What's really unique with us. Man is of course. Training training is great but we do ongoing accountability coaching though it really starts to help shift the mindset in that really affects the behavior and natural you start to see the real change takes place over time. Yup aleki certainly preaching Here because we put a lot of emphasis in episode type of years into accountability. And you know the difference between a dream and a golf betting a strategy italy's contest sophon. They'd myself over the years since since having accountability partners implies things things might quick show sorrow. Moulik decide this will be extremely well recites and you guys obviously in different locations is that is that because of the recent recent events or is that always been the case. I try to stay as far away as possible to erica. why i'm in texas. He's in utah. She's awesome but man. We actually have an autonomous company in. We don't have a brick and mortar building. We literally have coaches in denver. Florida oregon californian but i would i would definitely say the majority of our there in the beautiful state of utah while okay. So we're we hated. I touched on slave in this series of crowded. Today is the first episode of the creating amazing employee experience. Now we've done the whole customer experience in the past and some it was very well received and think in lots of current global economic situations with the off the back of the pandemic romell your experiences villanova. There's a lot of guys out there. A freaked up to the whole conversation around that staffer attention you know grinding good employees here experience deciding on just funding and i think now more than ever this sort of a situation where the the baby of talent around because for one reason or another people living that guy from the jobs and you know especially after year anyway of the years as miss this constant screen for office off. Now there's now this debate people around so they bang biking that in yourself. More appealing message is paying dividends. Sooner maybe even just now literally just before this podcast outed of Had job applications coming from adds that we're running. I just question whether or not. I don't recall having applicants coming in the fall. It's working in the fiber of the business owner to a degree. I think again. I go to make sure that you stand out against the rest. So we're gonna first step aside which we're talking about why your employees experience probably socks and nothing that would relate to most listeners Second upside we're talking about what you purpose at. In feticide we talking about what the successful companies to retain the employees are through. That you're gonna come up with those topics and you come up with original. What is that reason. So haven't employee experienced for shore is not just creating an employee experience where you have everyone coming into office. Because that's not normal anymore. You got coming into office than your get sent home against. You gotta figure out how to work from home in the now you gotta come back into the office. Now you're going to have an employee experience at home. How do you take care of your people right now. It's always been important but you definitely have to juggle all these different dynamics and one of the things that we have really seen. Is that your culture either by default or by design and it's really setting your employees up for success and even though you know contractors were not the disneyland's not the amazons the googles in t. mobile's or whatever we're not huge corporations where you hear of all these things or evil get one year off when they have their first kid from work paid like we're we can't do that kind of staff but we still have to nurture and take care of the people that we have and find ways we can help them grow and be successful regardless of the size of our company.

Coronavirus among health workers: Exposure, lack of testing
"Workers are still having a hard time getting coronavirus tests and as NPR's Laurel Wamsley reports, the lack of testing means there could be lots of asymptomatic healthcare workers caring Pretty sick people. In a recent round table with Joe Biden. Mary Turner, a nurse in Minnesota, told the president elect something he found surprising. Do you know that I have not been tested yet? And I have been on the front lines in the ice to you since February. You're kidding me. No guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control say that healthcare personnel should be tested if they're symptomatic or haven't known exposure to the corona virus. But treating covert 19 patients while wearing personal protective equipment, or pee pee Doesn't count as exposure that warrants testing. A recent survey by national nurses United, the nation's largest nurses union, found that only 42% of registered nurses in hospitals said they had ever been tested for covert 19. It continues to amaze me that we are not doing this. Michael Mina is an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health. He says, Well, PPE generally offers good protection. There have been outbreaks of hospitals at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where Minna runs the virology Lab. One outbreak involved 42 employees and 15 patients. Hospital blamed patients not wearing masks, staff without eye protection and employees failing to social distance while eating. Now that is an outbreak that shouldn't have happened. I believe very firmly that we would not have seen an outbreak grow so so quickly and it wouldn't have even been able to get started. If we were doing frequent testing. There are so many ways that hospital could be doing this and they're not Ministers. Hospitals could either use rapid auntie gin tests or pool PCR tests to do screening for the virus more cheaply they get Have ever on swab and put 50 swabs that a time into 12 and run that one tube and cool the test for very, very cheap. You could do a whole hospital departments with one Past for 50 Bucks a day. California State Health Department announced new guidance two weeks ago that strongly recommends weekly testing of healthcare personnel. But hospitals have struggled just to get enough tests for patients. Susan Butler. Wu is associate professor of clinical pathology at USC, and she directs the clinical microbiology lab at a large hospital in Los Angeles. So we were to take something like this recommendation. Where, Okay, let's say we screen everybody weekly. There's very few clinical hospital labs that would be able to have that much testing available to be able to do that. Color. Woo says that her hospital there are 10,000 workers that would likely need testing under the new guidance, and she says, without operational support from the state, the new protocols are going to cause problems. Including greater testing backlogs, but as a country because we don't have a national plan or national strategy, these air this This is the situation we find ourselves. Football players can get tests people choosing to socialize and wanting to feel safer doing so, even though it's a pandemic can get tests but a program to test the country's health care workers. Nope. Many nurses and doctors suspect hospitals are worried that widespread testing could reveal asymptomatic cases and then result in quarantining critically needed staff. And for Mina, the Harvard epidemiologist, The lack of regular testing of health care workers raises other questions. There's a clear problem when we're saying that the greatest risk people, the people who are at the greatest risk to themselves and to their patients or the health care workers, and so that's why we're going to give them vaccines before anyone else. But then when we don't have a vaccine, and it's just testing, we say, don't worry about it. It's not a big deal. You don't need to be tested. It's an approach, he says. That doesn't make sense.

Used to travel a lot more before this whole pandemic thing. So that bug is absolutely there unlike you I loved tropical vibes. Places A Beautiful Landscapes Yeah, absolutely. I love her brother and I also personally love your arch Merill Journey, but I want to share with fire nation now. So talk to us about Your Arch Moreau journey to get you to where you are today. Sure. Many years ago with been around for maybe twelve to thirteen years. Now Time Flies John and I started as a door to door sales. Read Right I was working at an Elementary School in Orlando Florida and working my tail off to get into like twenty eight, thousand dollars a year a two weeks vacation hoping seven thirty to three thirty at whatever time off of work and I wanted to do something they gave me more time. Gives me more time and I work hard is up. Can I do something that doesn't can't my income but I, really just wanted to have more time. I'm like you after I just WanNa sit at the beach I. Just WanNa look out the window I just want to play basketball or actually I wanted to do with my children by how can I do that and so I went online inbound a position In a one, hundred percent commission sales opportunity. before and to California wasn't successful at all initially. Because he was trying to do with the corporate way with you know the sales pitch in the book and. Corporate approach in just got turned down. At. Every business that I went to drop it right now. So you know what? Let me just Relate to people from Detroit Michigan School of hard knocks in the thing I I know how to do is connect with people. You know winner talk we're not to talk sometimes and I did that in super. Just to speed it up really quick I. had a triple my income that year a quadruple did the next year. But then I realized that what I was doing wasn't what I thought. I was doing meaning that I was selling the product that I didn't even understand myself rice. Even though I had dropped the sales pitch book, still have the spirit of that particular company in the industry itself, and that is the spirit of confusion. So you know I was selling merchant programs where the be rates were. There'd be tough with at least not by Terminal Benign, bucks you Lisa for three hundred bucks. This is especially for brick and mortar businesses. You can lease terminal could cost ninety nine dollars you can. Literally Lisa the terminal but three to sometimes a thousand dollars per month for forty eight months in into the least they do not own the machine and it was just you know even the in the way we would pitch them. It was just a real messy thing once I realized what I was doing because I had never read the contract I had never really met the contract myself. I was just starting the program. And once I realized I had to move decision it was totally against particular companies I guess goes to really client on what's really happening behind the scenes by the time decline realize what going on it was too late they were locked into. A four, five year contract with all kinds of these anti get out of it was it will require legal entanglement right with them as you have to hire attorneys go through this other stuff in its contract. So it's Kinda hard to get out of it. So. I had to make a decision to leave that company, lead all the money that had all the recurring incumbent had to. It's up deleted lead cable right and so I did that I went to work with another company and in six months I had. Replaced the incumbent Henry the other company, man those bags were not. They were robbing me and I was by taking advantage of announced robbing Murchison's basically right or Robin clients. So. Same thing had been there all of a sudden. They create money out of thin air when I say thin air veneer. So as an example, there's something called Pi compliance that every business needs to happen in particular Brigham mortar businesses by you don't necessarily. Do but something healthy you it helps protect

Brigham Young University in Idaho University are warning their students to not get corona virus just to try to sell their antibodies they say that students are intentionally exposing themselves to others with cove nineteen in the hopes of getting the disease so that they can get paid for their plasma that contains covid nineteen antibodies. The University says that they condemn this behavior and if you're caught doing this, you'll be expelled from the university in sent back home. How much is that blood worth I? I don't know. The plasma I don't know because of I've never. I've never seen anybody that's selling it at all. I thought that that you that would also have to go through so many so much screening and have the right health, and there's a lot of people that want to and can't donate it or sell it. So it's not a guaranteed moneymaker for you. You're going to risk your life like that and everybody around you.

20 - Children and COVID-19 with Infectious Disease With Expert Dr. Kristin Moffitt
"Of course, I my friend and Co host Dr Steven Tailback. He's a quadruple board certified doctor of internal medicine, Pulmonary Disease Critical Care, and neuro critical care and he's on the front lines of the covert battle out in California, for which we are eternally grateful Steve How you doing. Thanks remotely tuning in. Hey Bill. Good to see. And a very special guest Dr Kristen Mufid. She's an associate physician in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Division at Boston Children's. Hospital. And she's a multiple award winning physician and professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical. School. Christie is also affiliated with Brigham and Women's Hospital She's certified in general pediatrics and Infectious Diseases by the American board of Pediatrics Doctor Moffett. We'd like to thank you for breaking away in. Joining us today. All right. Thanks for having me. Tell me how is Boston Children's focused change during this virus Boston Children's like every hospital in Boston March and early April were all frenzied months as we were preparing like hospitals I'm sure all around the world for what we were anticipating to be a surge in Cova infected patients. It became fairly clear relatively early in the pandemic with data coming. Out of China that children did not seem to be suffering the same severity from this infection as older individuals in adults did we were not completely sure whether or not that data would hold true as the virus swept across the world. Luckily, that has actually held true but that should not be taken it all to mean that children don't get sick from this some children do get sick. From this some do require hospitalization in some studies up to a third of children who require hospitalization require ICU, level care. So Boston Children's was in a unique position in Boston as you know, Boston has an abundance of hospitals for people to choose from excellent hospitals, all of them, but Boston Children's is the only free standing children's hospital. There are several other children's hospitals in Boston but they all. have their physical spaces, their units, their hospital beds contained within larger hospital systems that treat adults. So a decision was made within the city for Boston Children's to be able you take care of all the after patients in Boston who required hospitalization so that the deatrich beds in those other hospitals that were within adult hospitals could be committed to carrying for adults with cooking seems like a good. Plan well, even you just mentioned that children are substantially less susceptible to this virus than people at risk of the children who do get seriously affected by this virus apparently more than seventy five percent of the fatalities in children related to this virus are those of minorities? Can you explain why that's happening? Yeah. That is very true. The disproportionate effects that this infection has had on black and individuals. That has been seen in adults is playing out very much children as well, and that's true. Both of Acute Kobe infections, and then as you may know, we were all surprised in the pediatric. Rome to start to understand this other entity called MISC or multi system inflammatory syndrome in children that seems to be overwhelming inflammation that occurs in children largely two to four weeks after a covert infection. So both acute colon and MISC are impacting minority populations in pediatrics substantially two ways that the most likely explanation is that children are most likely exposed in their households in in their communities, and those are exactly the households in the communities in which the adults are suffering the most serious consequences in highest incidents of covid nineteen infection. So I think that children really very much are reflective of that. So interesting statistic when you look at it, I know from the adult side, we certainly see in that population, there's a lot of multifamily housing multiple families living under one roof and that sort of social crowding a seems to have an impact but also of those people who are not financially immune. So to speak from the virus in that, they must go to work every day to feed their family. You can't be you know a day laborer and do. It via zoom, you actually need to show up in in any time. There is that expectation. There's not going to be a lot of social distancing at the workplace in. So we think that lower socioeconomic in general would be forced to continue their work in their jobs. In spite of the fact that the risks remain the same and the statistic is not percentages of people who get the virus it is a death toll of people who have the virus. So, is it biological that affects them differently or lifestyle or food or? Those are all definitely hypotheses that still frankly require investigation and I think that there may even be a multifactorial. For it. That is along the lines of what Stephen was mentioning is a difference in access to healthcare for these affected populations as well. It certainly is possible that there may be a biological explanation, our hospital in coalition with. The other hospitals are studying the genetics of children who are impacted by either severe ovid infection or by MISC but there isn't anything clearly being born out yet in terms of solid genetic reasons that make me immune response to these affected populations different. Necessarily, there's still some work to be done there. But as you suggested to bill the underlying potential complicating factors that might be called co morbidity in some are also higher in these populations and make them at higher risk in more susceptible to more severe sequentially of this infection.

Michael Jordan did that, too. That was so bizarre. So to be absolutely clear. And not only the Non Mormon historical record backs me up on this, but so do the official writings of the church. Brigham young was a man of consummate evil, not just by today's standards, but his own as well he was deeply hateful of black people and robustly pro slavery. He owned the man who entered the Salt Lake. Valley one second before he did, and enslaved black person called green flake because he was driving the wagon Brigham sick ample rump was laying. He made the Utah Territory. The only American slave territory outside of the south he was a mass murderer who ordered the massacres of of at least hundreds likely far more far more indigenous people the order for the tip massacre, being just one example where probably died. And likely even gave the order that took the lives of over a thousand, or I'm sorry. Over one hundred California bound white. Arkansas settlers at the mountain meadows massacre, which Doug disgusted in episode, Fifty One. As experience he had an intestinal thing that made him grumpy. He was grumpy man and he looked like it. As he was both civil ecclesiastical master of his people, he was basically responsible for everything that happened in the territory where a fairly common practice was capturing or buying indigenous children to be slaves in white households. Most of whom only live to be about twenty. There's record of hundreds of these cases. He had no less than three dedicated assassins, whom he directed to commit an unknown number of blood atonement, which were just extrajudicial murders of people he hated. You can listen to our segment about that and episode fifty. Here are some quotes, and there are many more from my friend. Brigham young pertaining to slavery and black people generally. You must think from what I say that I'm opposed to slavery. No exclamation point the Negro is damned and is is to serve his master till God chooses to remove the curse of Ham. Another one is shall I tell you the love God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain.

It leaves no doubt that the confederacy would die defending a certain God ordained institution and I quote. The comments, the new constitution has put to rest forever. All the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists exists amongst.

Its cornerstone rests upon the Great Truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man that slavery subordination to the Superior Race is his natural and normal condition. This our new government is the first in the history of the world based upon this great, physical, philosophical and moral truth. So. The founding and defining principle of the confederacy was their God given right to practice slavery forever. Miss me with the state's rights.

"It's just it makes it easier. So this was nearly two thousands this request was made. So you know, like so many of the crazy problematic ideas and doctrines from their original founders and in their scripture. The official churches tried to put distance between themselves and blood atonement saying they don't practice it anymore. And they never really did it despite what Brigham Young said in conference. So this is a process made more difficult when constantly they're hard right, conservative. Mormons in the state house trying to reintroduce the firing squad every couple years because of their belief in blood atonement. But the church still tries to distance itself. I don't know. This is to me, this is kind of like the dragon's teeth once you've. Yeah, throw this crazy shit with unaccountable men. You know out there, this is what you get.

But before he was executed. But after his brutal betrayal by Brigham Young Lee wrote not a biography in which he spilled some bloody beans. Here is a remembrance of one of what was likely a large number of unrecorded secretive. Blood atonement s- blood atoning 's. So wait, you say it's a record a record of unrecorded, but atonement. Yeah, I really tripped on my dick on that one that that error might actually qualify for my own blood atonement. And I'm quoting Jonny Lee here the most deadly sin among the people was adultery and many men were killed in Utah for that crime. Ross Mus Anderson was a Danish man who had come to Utah. He had married a widow lady and she had a daughter that was fully grown at the time of the reformation. The reformation is basically when the Mormons arrived in Utah were setting up their their theocracy. The girl was very anxious to be sealed to her stepfather at one of the meetings during the reformation Anderson and his stepdaughter confessed that they had committed adultery. Oh, shit, believing when they did so that Brigham Young would allow them to marry after they confessed. When he learned the facts, their confession being full, they were rebaptized and received into full membership. Oh, they were then placed under covenant that if they again committed adultery, Anderson should suffer death. Soon after this soon after this a charge was laid against Anderson before the council accusing him of adultery. With his stepdaughter. This coun-. Sle was comprised of some guys Smith, his to counselors. It was the bishops council without giving Anderson any chance to defend himself or make a statement the council voted that Anderson must die for violating his covenants. Klingensmith went to Anderson and notified him that the orders were that he must die by having his throat cut so that the running of his blood would atone for his sins Anderson being a firm believer in the doctrines and teachings of the Mormon church made no objections, but asked for half a day to prepare for death, holy shit. His request was granted. His wife was ordered to prepare suit of clean clothing in which to have her husband buried and was informed that he was to be killed for his sins, and she was directed to tell those who should inquire after her husband that he had gone to California. Oh, wow. Wow. That's interesting. Yeah, so they would've would've fun little wrinkle. So she was she was coerced into the cover up of her own. Murder. Klingensmith. James has limb Daniel McFarland and John M higby whoever the fuck. They were dug a grave in the field near cedar City, Utah, and that night about twelve o'clock when Anderson's house, they went to Anderson's house and ordered him to make ready to obey the council Anderson got up, dressed himself bit. His family, goodbye grabbed his best javelin. Just shaved his throat. So it was nice and clean only get an infection, no right on and without a word of of remonstrance accompanied those that he believed were carrying out the will of almighty God. They went to the place where the grave was prepared Anderson knelt on the side of the grave and prayed Klingensmith and his company then cut Anderson's throat from ear to ear and held him so that his blood ran into the graph then goes on to talk about how they dressed him in his funeral clothes than they toss them in the grave. They didn't dress him. I know because they'd be bloody. You can't bury a bloody guy in a bloody suit. What are we monsters? Dick moved would be it would be barbarism of the highest order. It's true, and because they were such civilized men, they took the bloody clothes back and ordered his wife to wash them. Yup. Because you know what's room on the porch..

But anyway, we'll, let's leave the racism aside for a second is fun as it is. Yeah. And let's and it was racism really was the foundational animus that the real father of modern Mormonism Brigham Young was also motivated by it seems that the most common charge for those who were in one way or another blood atoned was adultery. So too little side Jonny Lee was a super important character in the early church in the founding of what was going to be the kingdom of the west. He was involved in a massacre of over one hundred twenty Arkansas pioneers who were headed west through Utah, nineteen fifty, seven. We're gonna talk about that. It's a long story that we're going to cover another time. But for the sake of brevity, this mass murderer can also trace its motivations to the principle of blood atonement. It's believed Brigham Young, ordered the extermination, and that is trusted Lieutenant Jonny Lee carried it out, but whatever happened, the feds came snooping around, of course and escape. Goat was required in short order. John D Lee was himself blood atoned shot by firing squad as he sat on the edge of his coffin. That is just smart thinking. Nobody has to move him into it.

I think it covers like wire fraud and aggravated jaywalk. It's your basic warranty, right? Yes. Decapitation as part of the extended warranty. Loyd where prohibited this is, does not cover certain things. See your dealer for details. Let's let's the fine print. Let's go back to brother, Brigham, shall we? Because he's, he's really provided nothing, but and he's such a peach peach. Remember when I said that miscalculation, the mixing of the races was punishable by classical murder. I do remember when you you. Dear listeners were probably like no way uncle Mark. That's too crazy to be true. I present dear listeners, prophet, Brigham Young himself, and I quote. What did we get mixed up in. Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race that that is nothing good is going? No, no, no. Anyone ever says that. Doc, you're doing sort of Louis Farrakhan says those words, something horrible. This is the fundamentalist nineteenth century, Mormon version of, I'm not a racist, but. And he continues if the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seat of Cain, the penalty under the law of God is death on the spot. This will always be so always you're saying Richard Spencer is a Mormon he, we'd be very comfortable yet. It'd be very comfortable at least similar haircuts, at least in Brigham Young's Mormonism. So Brigham Young taught that in the case of miscalculation with blacks, the children of that union should also be blood atoned. Jesus, meaning that children should be fucking murdered. Wilford Woodruff who became the fourth president of the Mormon church recorded in his journal, an address delivered by Brigham Young in eighteen fifty two. In this address, we find the following any man having one drop of the seat of Cain in him cannot hold the priesthood. I will say it now in the name of Jesus Christ. I know it's true and they know it. The negro cannot hold one particle of government. If any man mingles seed with the seat of Cain, the the only way. He could get rid of it is to have Salvin and have salvation would be to come forward and have his head cut off and spill his blood on the ground. It would also take the life of his children, jeez. Well way, though if he does have his head cut off, can you get the priesthood? Then he can be he can. He can receive exultation, go hard. It is to cut up. Someone's head with javelin. Poke it. It's a, it's a really perforation what you do. You do a series of just rip and if they just like, look, this is gonna suck. But if you hold still gonna be..

"Just myth bizarrely claimed that the apostle Peter from the bible had appeared to him to tell him that Judas had not hung himself as the biblical account would have as believe, but that Peter and the other apostles had killed him, oh, to atone for betraying Jesus. Did you know that it's a phrase it heater was like Joseph wake up. I forgot to tell you, hey, just quick f y, you gotta hear. This was hilarious before you go seat promises short. No, you hang up. So in eighteen fifty, seven Hieber seek Kimball a member of the first presidency of the church at the time. And one of the top three leaders confirmed this vengeful act of extra judicial, lex talionis. That's actually a legal term, meaning a retr- retribution punishment, matching the nature of the crime. Oh, say it again. Lex talionis. Cool. Yeah, lex. Luther is look at brains on Mark. That the the apostles applied this crazy thing and he, he talked about it in a speech at general conference, and I quote he perceived Kimball here. Judas lost that saving principle. He did not say, and that loving feeling and they took him and killed him. It said that his bowels gushed out. Feeding. The other apostles kicked him until his bowels came out. I know the day is right at hand when men will forfeit their priesthood and turn against us and against the covenants they have made, and they will be destroyed as Judas was. I see. So the other eleven apostles kicked him to pieces. Yeah, is the idea here history's first curb stomping. Somebody needs to invent a knife for these guys because that's a way better than a lot of work, especially with sandal, yeah, a sandal foot, yet steel toes, though you sharpen those sandals up sandal gonna get a nice clean cut a tend to be good. It's going to be. It's going to be merciful for everyone. Yeah, yeah. So this bizarre reworking of the events surrounding the biblical account of the crucifixion is credited with being the origin of Mormon, blood atonement. In addition, the book of Mormon account of knee decapitating the unconscious Laban has discussed. An episode forty-three at God's command has also frequently been cited by people when they have practiced blood atonement. Just a year prior to Hebrew Kimball speech, here's the prophet himself, Brigham Young, explaining the principal in no uncertain terms. Okay. And I quote it is true that the blood of the son of God was shed for sins through the fall, and those committed by men yet men can commit sins which can never meant there are sins that can be atoned for by an offering upon an altar as in ancient days as there are sins that the blood of a lamb or a calf or turtle doves and all the other five days of twelve days of Christmas cannot remit, but they must be atoned for by the blood of the man. This is the reason why men talked to you as they do from the stand. They understand the doctrine and throw a few words about it in another sermon. Brigham Young made it plain. I'd never had this before that a man could blood atone his own wife. Of course again, because you know, against support the patriarchy by allowing a guy to murder his wife every now and not not surprised by that one, not surprise well, especially when you have fifty. Five. It's not letting run out of wives, right? Exactly. But every now and then you're going to want to get rid of one or two of them. Let let and I quote, let me suppose a case. Suppose you found your brother in bed with your wife and put a javelin through both of them challenging. Where the fuck you gotta stay right there. I've got a run down to shed and find my javelin go to the sports cupboard. Discus. Well, it'll it'll have to do. If you put a javelin through them, I continue. He continues, you would be justified and they would atone for their sins and be received into the kingdom of God. I would at once do..

"Yeah. Well, you got to have a little feeder. Did you wait? Doug? Did you did you dry the no cross? They had removed those in the nineties before I came along, but like right before right before it was like, yeah, few years. If if we were all ten years older, you would have done that and you made a promise to avenge the blood of the prophets and you drew your, yeah. And if I, if I if I reveal the secrets of the temple may may my blood be spilled in my. I think it was ninety three, whatever. I'd have to look it up. Any was ninety three got rid of the. Brittle fucking bloodletting and guts spilling. Yeah, but they only got rid of the ritual part. They didn't get rid of the real part. So anyway. And also what animated probably mated Brigham Young sense of vengeance was the murder of his beloved prophet. Joseph Smith probably turned his bloodlust up to eleven so lucky for him. Josaphat already laid the doctrinal pipe to pump all of this blood through. So as Joseph imagined it and Brigham Young codified, it Mormon, blood atonement was a mechanism for saving the soul of a person who had sinned, the end, the redemptive qualities of Jesus's blood. We're not enough to to sort him out in the next life. So these can only bleed so much. He's one guy. He is a, there's a line not good enough. He is paragraph seven. Most abundantly haemophiliac Jew of all. So the centers owned blood must be spilled all of it basically, or at least enough until they're dead to save their soul beyond the veil. It's an extra judicial theocratic murder by vigilantes after a secret vote by church elders, and it's considered an act of love. It's actually considered an act of murder. They call it redemption. And as I'm sure you'll go into it, can't just be you can't poison them. No, hang them, right. And that's why I gotta believe the church was not super happy about hanging being choice in the early years of of the state as capital punishment because it didn't properly Zil your blood and didn't bleed them, didn't blade him. So what crimes are so heinous that Jesus himself cannot forgive you while most obviously in most confusingly murder since expiating that's in also involves murder, but also the most egregious crime miscalculation. The absolutely forbidden mixing of the perfect white race with any son or daughter of Kane, really meaning black people that is by far the worst holy shit, Brigham Young, and I will expound on this was the worst crime you could possibly commit. And if you don't believe me those more on that in a. Gif, but also you could be blood atone for blasphemy, apostasy. We're all fucked. Adultery theft. I'm fucked. Again, fornication fucked naturally and naturally expressing satisfaction or happiness about the murder of Joseph Smith. Just saying, I'm glad he's dead to get you decapitated. So Joseph Smith bizarrely claimed this is I had never heard this before..

"So more in, I kind of stuff I for nine so well, Mormonism certainly does lean heavily on Jesus and the books of the New Testament. The heart of Mormonism lies very much in the bloodiest tales of punishment and revenge in the Old Testament, as Dan said is for is to for Tooth's and blood for blood. The term blood atonement doesn't appear anywhere of. Surprisingly in the four accepted books of Mormon canon interesting. The term blood atonement. The idea is there, but not as you know, not codified in the term. So terms like blood for blood and spilled blood cries out for retribution do appear in the books. The book of Mormon also states that the law of Moses demands capital punishment for the crime of murder. Quick aside for any new or never more listeners who are not familiar with the book of Mormon. The Boorman is a fictional fever dream written by Joseph Smith. It claims to be an account of ancient America in the time of Christ. And in the years following it is a laugh. Ably unsupported unsupportable work of bad faith. In short native Americans are not descended from Israelites who bobbed to Guatemala in a flotilla of unpowered wooden submarines with corks in the bottom and magic glowing rocks for reading lights inside all those absurdities and more our truth claims in the book of Mormon. So that's how seriously you should take any command for capital punishment. And again for never Mormon listeners. The author of this book of balderdash and the founder of Mormonism is Joseph Smith. Yeah. In his many graphs and plagiarisms he either misunderstood the New Testament point about the proxy blood of Jesus and bloodshed generally or just Foley ignored it in favor of creating a new extrajudicial mega mechanism for forcing his will on his taciturn flock. So either way the the big. Dimissed polygamist borrower and coarser of other men's wives and their young daughters and all their property found himself very much blood atoned by a furious mob of his ex followers at the Carthage, Illinois jail in June of eighteen forty four. Ain't that the truth. His cell was attacked shots from hidden guns were fired, and I believe Han shot first, yeah, and Joseph fell out the window and crawled to lean against a well as his blood poured out onto the ground in an irony that he probably was able to appreciate I hope in. So that's so none of that was it was appreciated by him at all. And then our story takes in even bloodier turn because the second prophet and president of the church who took over after a brief power struggle was none other than Brigham Young, the Stalin of Mormonism. Yeah, slash miscarriage. Mormonism both. Why such a pattern isn't it? One hundred percents. So both Joseph and Brigham Young were were fervent proponents of blood blood atonement, but Brigham was the fervent her. Vengeance would become one of Brigham Young's defining characteristics, and if you don't believe me another time, we can talk about the oath of vengeance. He added to the novel temple ceremony, a ceremony that already included ritual murder gestures of slicing throats and spilling guts. Just gestures though, just come on guys, calm down, actually, murdering people in the temple that we know this is a little bit of theater..

And you know what, though, I mean, blanket trigger warning. Yeah, on the show. I don't know why. Why we're separating this show from episode. We should just call it the trigger warning with Mark and Dan and Doug. That's right. Spinoff show. All right. So you know when when our listeners outside the beehive state think of of Utah, we always do. They're constantly thinking of their dear uncle 's, but maybe they think about the skiing or maybe they're aware of the skiing. Sure. Greatest snow on earth by maybe maybe if they're of a generation, they think about the osmond's or certainly Mitt Romney. Yeah, although mitts not he's a, he's a an alien to Harvard baggers with the call here. Now where's his birth certificate. So you know, that's those two people to groups are just a human ocean of gleaming white teeth, right? And and and maybe they think about our friends the Mormons, of course, because that's what everybody knows about Utah. Yeah, and they likely imagine a bland anodyne place. That's a land of casseroles and over large blonde families, admiring hand made quilts at a country fair perhaps. Yes, but they're not wrong. That's all true. But what they made on, imagine as that Utah was the only state to have beheading, yes, beheading as a legal form of deterrence on the books and that Utah, not only happily maintains the practice of capital punishment, but kept death by firing squad on the books until two thousand four and the last bound blindfolded person to be legally shot at close range by four men in Utah was in two thousand ten because his request was grandfathered in. Yeah, so of it, what? What in the world could possibly explain people? So. Squeaky squeaky-clean outwardly joyful maintaining so primitive and violent set of practices. You know, uncle Dan, yes, sir, blood atonement, blood atonement. How is that a thing? So today's magic word, fuck you say in the Sigrid cow category is Mormon blood atonement. So the seeds of what would become more than blood atonement lay throughout the New Testament. Sure, by accepting the divinity of Jesus and the proxy human sacrifice and the blood of the son of God, there's a path to redemption and the forgiveness of sins by accepting the the shedding of Jesus's blood, your sins may be forgiven. And when you think about it, it's a super weird concept. It's a disastrous concept. It's a super weird concept, but it's one that is so foundational Christianity and it's been around for so long. Kind of doesn't feel like a crazy idea. They don't even question it. We don't even question it even those crazy. Fuck it's so stupid. It's like. Doug Stanhope said stub. My toe for your mortgage right? And yet, thanks question Mark. He died for our sins yet we can still send it, doesn't it? And it's human sacrifice, and it's every fucked up stupid thing in the world. Oh, but that is the Christian concept? Yes, right, very important. It's the foundational Christian. It is just it's Christianity is still down to a single sentence, right? Pretty much. So as you see the Mormons took this concept in a in a sort of different direction, and there's some really surprising moments in here. Alyssa water. All this blood is making me thirsty. Mormonism at its root is what's called a restoration est faith. Indeed, a movement that is also described as Christian primitivism lucky for those of us who grew up in it. It's the idea that Christianity must return to its earliest most primitive principles and the original apostolic structure of the church. So Joseph, myth and Brigham Young and the rest of the early church elders were always speaking about a return to biblical habits, temple building. Sure polygamy polygamy, right, total theocracy and re retribution of punishments for crimes. Sure..
