"This let that led to that. But i don't know if there would have been another way to get to this point with my leg damn you what. What an amazing just moment An experience and you know it it. It sounds like when you when you put up that first simple post you know and it kinda like giving this back. The intention was maybe just to be a little bit vulnerable but your community was like you said waiting you. Even if they didn't know that this was a part of your truth they knew You know what you had been through in addition to that and they wanted to do something they wanted to say. We've got you in some way shape or form but didn't know how and this gives them like a just a very straightforward easy vehicle to say like we got you. We appreciate you and it's almost like you're giving them a gift of saying there's easy action that'll help support. And i think i didn't know how to ask the night thing. I didn't realize i was asking in that moment to right. And you're right. It's it is a gift and i think i've certainly been on. The end of that to our son was when people ask like which i be doing to support someone who's going through something i mean it. It's we don't want to be a burden and a lot of us. Have the mentality but really people want to help. They want to do what they can. Mostly i think that's mostly true. And so yeah. It was this moment that i gave people permission and invitation to do something and it was vulnerable. I mean i still like. Share the photo on the anniversary and out right now and then because i think it's in the clinic and you see the prosthetic leg and so it was even a way of showing like my body that i haven't done before because of my own discomfort around having a disabled body and and so yet was a it was a it was a step that has led to a lot of other kind of undoing of of my own able ism in some on business of saying. This is what i look like. Okay okay this is what i need. Okay you know and then being caught being accepted. Yeah yeah it's really interesting to hear you serve. Say of the undoing of my own able ism. Because i think when we think about if the outside looking in you sort of like no. It's it's it's always others deal. With abe eliza towards somebody who is living with a disability rather than. But you can't do that to yourself but in fact it it sounds like Like part of the just the the internal dialogue with you was a certain amount of rejecting a part of who you are wanting to keep it hidden as much as possible. Maybe for different reasons. Maybe your like you said going back to the early hammers asian the end of the day. We all just want to belong Yeah and i mean like internal lies day elizabeth unavoidable and and for a long time i would have very concrete real thoughts of. I don't want to look like this. Which is a crummy feeling right. We've all felt that we've all had those moments. But and we kind of know intellectually where that standard comes from and we know the problems with it and and that we're all impacted by this like homogenized european centric beauty and all of those things. The experience of is really hard in hurts right and i often thought. I don't wanna look like this. I don't like the way that i walk. I don't like the way that you know. It feels i seem you know. And all of this all negatively towards my myself. Because i hadn't been shown disabled body's beautiful or or strong or or interesting the way that certain bodies are shown with this viewpoint. Strong i mean that's the power representation right and so most of us have had to grapple with that a little bit but It it took time to yeah to undo it. And i mean blessed social media for like the knee razor for putting that post something coming out of it but that's also where i started to see other disabled people and was inspired to question. Why i these ideas about myself and started to see you know. Other people rocking their prosthetic legs or whatever it is and having more conversations about representation and disability and so all these things were happening at the same time and feeding each other.

Not just a your primary vocation for a long time Not just a a form of creative expression for you but also a place of homecoming and soulless and coping to a certain extent which you would really need because coming home the years that followed Were about to serve up some really really hard experiences to you. Know you come back and you start to make the transition into the career as a musician and start to create albums in which requires time in studio time writing performing locally. And then touring the album's your first album. That i felt it was the first album right. So you're about to start tarling. Is you simultaneously fall in love with somebody. In relatively short short order to realize that you're going to have a baby which for for a chunk of years because of what You had been through in your earlier. It sounds like you know it was something where you were never entirely sure that was going to be possible. Yeah i'd been told when i turned eighteen and my pediatric oncology team was kind of handing me over to adult care team. They're like by the way bunch of long term side effects of the chemo. Possible lick heart disease. Maybe some other cancers and likely difficulty with fertility house like eighteen. So that the not on my radar. But i been getting like i might never be able to get pregnant or that. It would be hard for me to get pregnant because that's what they said And so to be honest. I was a bit of for a while there but i had one unplanned pregnancy earlier that terminated but that opened my eyes like oh wait a second turns out. I can't get pregnant and then in this relationship of half falling in love Fast and furious And then another unplanned pregnancy and just as my album was coming out this new album in this career that he found myself in and had to kind of go. Oh wait valley baby. So what does it mean for the album. And i want this baby but i also really wanted this career and this relationship is new and and it kinda thrust us into you know a very intense time Together figure out. I'm talking million of the father of the baby and figuring out what do we want. I mean he also was just about to start his. Mfa in we. We're in our twenties and felt like the world was before us and I mean kids changed things pregnancies. Change things so we decided to kind of put music on hold a little bit slow down and and wait for the baby to come. Which was Are for son emmett. Which brings us to The next moment that would really bring you to your knees and also introduces for the first time. A question in your life. The people would start asking you as you move through here adult Hood You lose emmett And which is a devastating devastating experience for you and something that you have to be with With this person who you're with. Who would eventually in the time following become closer with you and you would end up married but it also as as you're trying to figure out not only move forward after this absolutely horrendous experience This question starts popping up. Which is you know when you meet people. And you're at a certain age at a certain time and yelich married at that point Haiti have kids that question for years. It now twenty twenty almost fifteen years. The question has has hit me in a lot of different ways and so m it Died during during labor effectively. I mean i think officially the day after as we did have him on life support for a day which grateful for i got to hold his body and look at him touch him. nc him on the outside but then we had to let him go and so do you have children. I mean when you've lost child. I mean even for other reasons. It's a tough question for a lot of people. Maybe he didn't ever want to have kids and are tired of talking about it or can't have kids and that's a heartbreak or like me who had lost a child You know i would have different answers at different times. i could say yes but he died After emmett our i could say no. And then i would feel like this this punch in my stomach because It meant so much to me to think of myself as a mother and it would depend on. Who was asking where i was and how i was doing. And all of these different factors you know. Always trying to kind of guess how it might go. Who am i talking to our. They are going to be okay with this or just freak them out play. Start talking about death Because that happens. And the how that question i mean. It's a question. I try to never even though i find myself all of these years later and everything that's happened and now with a three year old that i will go to ask people are or version of it. Which is do you have other kids you know beyond the playground and your small talking with parents you know and how old are they oh yes ended and then oh do you have other kids and i don't do it. Don't do it even though it's like it seems like such a normal question but i just it can be so loaded and So i try to never ask it. You know if someone offers that information sure yeah. It was a hard question and because after we had emmett and got married and were once again feeling hopeful about our future and i was making music again and my ex's making again k. Okay we can do this. We can get through this together And then i got pregnant again with our son. Ford and ford was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome very rare and very serious defect and lived a really difficult life and then he died when he was fourteen months old. And so then the question again. Do you have kids got even harder even harder and you know my book. It's called how to lose everything in it has a lot of these experiences in it Cancer and bone cancer and thyroid ectomy. But really my sons are the everything you know. Those other experiences are losses. But they don't have the the expanse that The loss of my children does And so but. I still a question that i liked. I i i've yet to have a firm response of yet to have my go-to that always makes sense even now with my daughter because now it's like i have one child i have three children or maybe none. I don't know. I don't if i want to talk about you know. Oh it stays something that i grapple with because it because it touches on such heartache dow knew it occurs to me also that that the question.

"It can change But i had a naming ceremony. When i was i think. Ground two with an elder that my my father was learning with he was actually arapahoe. And even though we recruit but we'd gone down to wyoming and So in my naming ceremony. I was given the name sandy bay which means singing woman and we came ceremony and Elder raymond told my family. She's gonna sing a lot and she's gonna talk a lot and exactly. It became this you know. In retrospect is very accurate but also the prophecy And entered in our traditional names are a way to describe where you might go. But they're also away to be reminded of your gifts or your contribution or your your place in your community. I mean many indigenous cultures certainly incre- in our creek community like it's community i. It's not to say that the self is is unimportant but that sorta wear self care can come from is if our community is cared for that we we will all be cared for and so when we think about our traditional names. It's telling us. How do we care for our community. How do we contribute. And so for me a singing woman. I contribute. And i care. And i give an i share by by singing by writing i telling stories and so it's a really beautiful perspective to have to think about your life as sort of this guiding story It's interesting to me. Also that as you just shared that might change later in life you might be given a different name which is kind of fascinating to me because if the name translates in some way shape or form to what you might understand as an identity and then your twenties thirties. You're given a different name than your weight. This isn't just a different name. Do mean like a now at an entirely different identity have grown into it or has was the first one wrong and like you start in the last couple of decades of life. And i actually only recently learned that i could get a new name because i was kind of having an idea the sitting. Yeah that's a bang on. Because i in the book but i had thyroid cancer couple of years ago and through the surgery my my voice ways impacted for while has mostly recovered. But at the time. I was primarily a touring singer-songwriter and i thought if i'm not singing like what i can't call myself singing woman that i just what do i say who am i and now. Who am i in my community. If i'm not the person singing. And then i i learned from someone else who was like. Oh just go get a new name. Does talk to your elders and say hey this is what's happening and i think there's a beautiful thing often with their teachings are what has been shared with me is that you know you you take from it what you need and so if at some point you need if you need a new name if you need another way to ground yourself you know you can ask and see. We'll see what the answer is. But i found through finding out. Oh i could get a new name like do i need to do that. And then in talking to some other indigenous people and in through some other circumstances the name gave me a tool to reconsider my role. And i you know. I said that raymond said she'll talk a lot. And i shall sing along. She'll talk a lot. And i'd only really focused on the singing part and the fact that singing woman was in the name but i heard the second half of that much more profoundly after my vocal injury to think. Wait a minute. The part of the teaching was she's gonna talk a lot like that's part of being singing woman. I can still serve this role. I can still express myself in this way and it was really meaningful to have that shift and so in a way. The name grew with me or i grew with the name i mean.

How you sir revisited occa- so beyond the immediate translation There was this slightly more expensive offering you when you were to to the family like. Oh actually you know it. It encompasses something bigger and something more I know as a young kid. I mean it sounds like you were writing music from the earliest days like this was actually songwriting And writing lyrics already. Music was just a part of your dna but not necessarily performing it until like chunk later. Yeah yeah i mean it did. Singing songs always came so naturally to me and thinking when times people say how do you write songs to meet with so curious so think. Well how do you not like. Is everyone not singing songs. Are you not waking up in. His words are coming out of you. 'cause it's just seemed so so automatic natural to me but i had always had a lot of stage fright And so there was a kind of ongoing battle for awhile to this drive in me that wanted to share the songs and wanted to perform and and see what happened and then this very like physical fear that has kind of gone up and down over the years but the drive to share them so strong. Eventually i figured out how to live with the stagefright interesting also right because if if you view. Your name is just descriptive. It's it's kind of cool and interesting but if you as and also this is kind of your job in community then there's also the sense of. I'm wondering if you felt like you know through this time but this is kind of why i'm here like there's a job then i'm supposed to be doing or there's a sense.

"There's something really important than i think. We need to talk about first. And that is the fact that apparently you fold everything including dishcloths. We gotta start with you. It's wtrw yes i do. I do fold everything away. Gosh my secret is out. I mean well. I am very like tidy very organized person and you know on one hand. I love like the drawer. Everything being neatly tidied and put away because then it's like pleasing. It's like a small little tiny moment of of having fresh flowers. It's just like oh that's nice And i think for a while. I mean there's probably a part in my life for any little mishap would crush me and i think it's sort of turned me into a bit of a neat freak because it meant that that was an area of my life i could kill some control over so there was a time. We're just kinda served me well to think okay. Well at least taken full these dish put them away so that when it opened the door. It's not total chaos. I can't do much else. So i think i've always been a tidy person. But i think it probably got heightened in the in the last years but yes. It's true it's true. I'm i think. I know where you may be got some secret intel. All i'm going to share is at the person who related this very critical intel to me said it also happened to be pretty life changing for them. So that's good to hear that a positive listed in the beginning right but but then ultimately life changing in every way match so you grew up. Sounds like into a certain extent. Kenneth splitting your time part With your mom and canada and then summers aish with your dad in montclair new jersey to set aside a new york for those who don't know where that is. Your dad Was cree and sounds like he was. A healer was a culture her first nations culture part of your life from the earliest days. I'm curious yeah. And in this way that i wouldn't have known was remarkable or even to name because it was just there and my dad did also live in northern alberta. There was yeah definitely split my time and a few few homes as per custody agreements and my parents both moving a lot and so where he lived in northern alberta was was on a a cre- reserve and and he was a healer. And so you know what. My dad's house. There was a sweat lodge in usually one or two ts in the yard and he ran various ceremonies and in the summer. We would go to another camp where he ran fast for people. And i would my sister and i would just be running around in the field and he would be doing that work. And so you know as a kid i didn't i. Of course. I took it for granted that the swizz present in my life and that i had access to ceremony which of course for a lot of indigenous people. There's been you know. A break for a lot of heartbreaking reasons and so i feel really grateful that it was just there i mean the soaraway. I feel about it now. Is that you know as a teenager. I was like okay. Whatever dad and then by the time in my twenties i was ready to come back and say okay wait. Can we now talk about this. Can you share these teachings with me. More you know explicit way was when he was was sick and when he died and so i wasn't able to kind of learn more from him in a more direct way but but of course it it shaped me and it was. It was there. My child had the. I mean even just to know that this is a part of you from the earliest days until learn through us moses through just being around it. I think that's so powerful. It's something that i've been come kind of fascinated with the concept of lineage and heritage over last couple of years. Maybe i'm at that point in my life where i'm getting curious about it. And if it like so often so many of us really know nothing about you. Know not just our parents as human beings but also the lineage that you know their parents and their parents and their parents and and what may have been lost along the way. Yeah and it's interesting. What gets shared. Because my dad was also french that my last name couture was my dad's last name but i know i know about french. Canadian like i would feel a bit shakey thing. I say a french canadian ancestry. I don't feel like. I'm part of that cultural group in the present whereas my from my mother's side she scandinavian and her parents lived in new norway. Alberta says it all right there and and so there was. There was some presence of that. You know adhere the stories and some of the words and the way. They talked about being norwegian and swedish. Was there but dia french. But i kinda i don't really talk about some like i wouldn't know what to say so it's interesting with the lineage. Because it's also like what was what happened to be present and so i can't the ways that i think of myself. I mean i think of my father very much as a cre- person although he was also mixed you know technically

The Queer Community And Body Image

"You've been getting in touch about your own experiences with body image of the back of our episode where we discussed the question was does the quake community have a problem with body image. And i think this is what i love. This would meeting gang on the politics me. Keep it down to quota trying to quote one of the guardians. Top ten pocus twenty twenty one year. Things have come to light you see. What's great is we sort of do the discussion episodes and then people start writing with other new views. Things that came up one of our listeners wrote in talking about we didn't have enough. The queer female perspective will say we didn't cover enough of the trans perspective on the body image stuff which contains so many specifics. And then we've had two more messages about certain angles on it that we may have overlooked first discussion which is so great. So i got something from dan dear christa. I've been listening to her savings over the past six months or so and love it. It's a great thing to all these viewpoints from across the lgbtq plus spectrum and feel that connection especially while we're unable to make real life ones during lockdown. I must however take issue with the point raised in last week's podcast about body image. We do have a problem in the community of body image and the way in which we raise up. The stereotypical white system muscular young man as the pinnacle of desirability. Well they go. I sort of just fine and thing. But i have noticed a growing aggression from some progressives within the community towards guys who do enjoy presenting stereotypically. Masculine i understand. It's very important to make sure all body types and the ways in which people like to present are important and should be equally visible engaged media across the board. however. I didn't think it's helpful to attack. Those do enjoy stereotypical appearances of masculinity. I have a friend who is very popular and well known online and presents as old school masculine. I'm recently had a tirade of messages from someone. Berating him for toxic masculinity. The friend in question is a lovely individual actually identifies pan sexual loves guys who present as feminine and was hurt by this unwarranted attack based on his appearance. Say my point is that will vote is important that we push for more diversity in image and representation within the lgbtq plus community. It shouldn't be on the basis of attacking those who happen to enjoy presenting as masculine in a more traditional way. Keep up the good work done from london thanks. Dan much appreciated. And we haven't covered that angle. It's really interesting and it leads me to think of perhaps a even bigger question big truck driving post is that i suppose. The persecution queer people have ever received is about sitting outside of the norm and argument. Is it's all spectrum. Let us be who we are. That's gender sexuality gender identity everything and what you're talking about. Dan is that within spectrum masculinity and femininity should be able to be apportioned to everybody. I wonder if this is about that. If we're going to allow people who are expected to be masculine to be feminine and we want people to understand that will say need to make people who just masculine and that doesn't make you. Not queer is about opening up. Everyone can be anything they want. Is the kind of the end goal here and the persecution of each other is something we have to be mindful of an ice certainly. Do you know because that can be true. Attached to suffering at the hands of people who are hyper masculine who have pointed out your lack of masculinity i needed. I had that like people you know. When i was a kid chris menial such go and they were always kind of the masculine people doing that. So you can then sort of demonized as people but actually there are going to be people who all they feel. Comfortable in. Their skin is being masculine. And that's what they wanna do and that is as valid as anything else. It's important to remember that

'Piecing things together': Christa Couture on how writing about loss helped her move forward

"KRISTA couture is a cree and Scandinavian musician broadcaster mother and now author. It's hard to grasp the breadth of loss that Krista has faced in her life and those losses feature prominently in her new memoir. It came up that I had lost a child. This was before I had lost a second and the eyes of the woman I was talking to lit up. I have a prints of skies. She said she had lost a boy her baby late in pregnancy it was a premature labor with complications. She described as a special and I was taken aback special had never occurred to me. We know something very few people know she said. It's true. I have been witnessed exceptional events. I never could have imagined the love I experienced when my first son was born how my heart grew, how a part of my being that I never knew had hid within me was illuminated. similarily, there was no way to predict the change his death in my arms would make the privilege of holding him through his beginning in this world to his end. The. Loss of two children has deepened. My compassion for others expanded understanding inspired a letting go of little things and defined what matters most Nothing could make my children's deaths seem worth it. But I can also feel gratitude for some of the changes. It's a duality that's hard to accept. I might argue that. Is Bliss and I would have been content to complain my days away on more trivial challenges. I didn't want this insight. But I can agree we are special few and sometimes the separateness I have felt from other parents is rooted calmly in this knowing. That's Christa a tour reading from her new memoir how to lose everything. Chris is my guest on the show today. Thanks so much for being here Christa. Thank you. So. Your book is called how to lose everything and it talks about a range of losses you've dealt with in your life what made you want to write this book now Well, I couldn't have written it any sooner. That's for sure. I needed enough time to pass I needed all of these events to be in the past You know grief is such a falling into pieces and writing a book, a literal piecing things together So I kind of had to have it all in front of me so that I could figure out how I wanted to do that, and I mean these stories I've been telling through music for years the stories that are in the book. But I think there was something that I was searching for that whole time like in expressing myself in wanting to be seen and heard and put these out there for people. That was very satisfying through music but I felt like when I settled on writing the book, I got to go in depth in a way that I had been looking for the whole time and it felt like I finally told the stories in a way that I can now probably stop stop telling him I mean. Now the book is out in that story will be told every time someone reads it but as far as an artist and creating from these experiences, I think the book finally became the most. Fulsome method for me to do that, you've described your your point form grief Bio as cancer, death, death, divorce more cancer, and I think that this nist of that description kind of gives me pause bit it's a lot. It's a lot to unpack but it almost feels intentional away of to sort of putting everything out there on the table for you. Yes, just little catchy grief bio. You know it's chilly in bullet form. It's a staggering I think even for myself in in thinking about this book and what I wanted to write in sort of being like well, there was this and this I was like, wow, that is that's a lot. It's a lot. Each one of those is a lot. and so I distill it down to that to Kinda give people a sense of what everything is to me in this book And of course, the death death that's the deaths of two of my children. That's the biggest part of everything and then there's all those other losses around it but the grief just kind of became an easy way to try and explain it to people. And I think people like sometimes no one or two of those things about like at a glance they're like, oh, the person with one leg or maybe they've heard some other interviews like, oh, the person who lost two children are the cancer survivor like there's kind of these different parts that people know in my my little grief bio is my way of saying, oh no, it's it's all one person.

She created the slap methodology, the silver lining action plan a thirteen month growth program, which is technology enabled data driven and based in behavior change science. Helping Small Business Owners developed the right habits and take the right actions to grow their business. Just regularly writes speaks and advises on small businesses. Thanks so much for joining me today. Christa. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so glad to be here. I am thrilled to have you here and we're going to be talking about. Selling through this whole Cova pandemic fan. which I think is something. So many small business owners are struggling with or have been struggling with of the past couple of months. And my first question for you is, would you talk some about? selling in a recession. People I think are afraid to sell Wen bad times but but I mean I think you believe it's possible. I. Believe it's possible. But what does that? What do you think? What does that? What like? Yeah listen I think. So, a couple of things number one is. It can't be sort of overstated how significant the disruption has been in twenty twenty for small business owners. I. Mean You if you're a small business owner listening and you feel tired and exhausted and worried. You know you're. Not Alone and this has been a really hard year. So you know I just you know I always wanted knowledge sort of the emotional reality of this moment because for many people are self included, right? You see your revenue go down a significant amount literally overnight no doing of your own and it's ridiculously stressful and so that is that is very real and we see that in. Almost all of our customers now with also true the silver lining. No Pun intended. Is that you know yes, we've watched all of our small businesses, their revenue go down things have gotten hard. It's also true that not one of our small businesses has out of business and the reason I think that's true. I is three things and this this goes to answer your question Diane the first. Is having a resilient mindset and we can talk about this more. But I in before Cova I talked a lot about mindset and how I thought the trick to sales and the trick to revenue really started with mindset. And I see that you know a million times more today than I. Did you know six months ago and so strong mindset staying positive? Not becoming a victim to the moment. But you know staying in control seeing all of this crisis as both risk and opportunity, and just choosing to believe that we will be okay you know and again there's a million things we could say about that. But that's number one and number two is getting really creative and adaptable. Now creative and adaptable does not mean that we start you know running around like chickens with their heads cut off. And getting really unfocused and getting you know really chaotic and throwing out what we originally did and try to start something brand new. But it means that there is always a new way to do what we do. There is always a new way to innovate. Even in my business journey, we used to be sort of consulting and training business and we've completely innovated how we do what we do, and now you know were software as a service company. But what we do have ultimately stayed the same and who serve stayed the same. But how we do it has innovated entirely, and so this is a moment where. Business, owners have an opportunity not to throw out what they do and not to throat who they do it for, but to actually get creative into innovate how they do what they do and the business owners that is seized sort of succeeding the most haven't been resistant to that adjustment but have releasing this as a moment to innovate to change and to ask the right questions of innovation, right not innovate. For. The sake of throwing everything they've built a way but innovate so that they can do what they do better in a way that really meets the times and then the third thing and it goes of counter to what our knee reaction is. Right when when we feel an element of scarcity or when we feel an elementary anxiety tend to think that the way we're gonNA generate more revenue is to. Sort of do anything to anyone rights, I will sell anything to anyone who will buy for me. You know anything's possible and we have tons of data and tons of proof. That's not true that in fact, the people who stay focused stay niche at but go really deep instead of really wide, those ones actually sell the most. So that's a long way to answer the question, but the quick answer is. I think there's a ton of opportunity right now I think business owners can make it through this right now but I think we need to be really intentional about being keeping our mindset strong. Being incredibly creative, adoptive, and sort of innovative around how we do what we do and staying focused and going deep, not wide and how we serve our customers. But at when we do those things for sure I, do believe we can get through this.

Alaska's Salmon are Shrinking

"Year salmon come home to Alaska's frigid rivers to mate, lay their eggs and die. The. State Salmon runs are some of the biggest in the world but over the past few decades, those big salmon runs have featured ever smaller. Salmon. Talk to people up there has been fishing for a long time and they're definitely able to tell you that we just don't see those really large old salmon used to see Christa a post doctoral fellow at the University of Alaska Fairbanks oaken colleagues at the University of California Santa Cruz, and elsewhere analyzed records of fish size. Going back to the nineteen fifties they included data on some twelve point, five, million, salmon, each of which had. To be measured by someone from the Alaska Department of fish and game, and there's no question about it. Salmon have shrunk sockeye salmon today are two point one percent shorter than their ancestors chum salmon are two point four percent shorter and Coho or three point three percent shorter Chinook or king salmon showed the greatest declines at eight percent. That's an average difference of more than two inches in length. The study is in the journal Nature Communications. The researchers haven't nailed down the exact reasons behind this trend, but they're analysis suggests that climate change and competition with wild and hatchery raised salmon, both play a role. They also discovered that much of the change in body size is due to fish returning from the ocean at a younger age now than in the past. Oak, says fish could be returning earlier because they're reaching maturity faster for some reason or because the ocean has become a riskier place for older salmon to survive what could be happening is the That otherwise would have returned large old. Just making. Whatever the cause this size shift has massive ramifications for people and the Environment Oak and her team calculated that catching smaller fish may have already slashed the value of Alaska's Commercial Salmon Fisheries by twenty one percent. It's also likely reduced the food available to subsistence fishers, many of whom reliance stores of salmon to get them through the long harsh winter by as much as twenty six percent. On the ecological side, the researchers estimated that smaller fish sixteen percent fewer eggs, which could depress salmon populations in the future and the Salmon Bring Twenty eight percent fewer nutrients into the watersheds were they spun according to the study after they breed and die kirk actually fertilize. Freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems with these marine derived nutrients that are really important and that used by all kinds of animals like bears and songbirds even taking up into trees with no single factor to blame for shrinking salmon there's no fix says, but there are still plenty of fish in the sea they're just smaller than they used to be.

[Unedited] Dario Robleto with Krista Tippett

"Ning and. Welcome back to winter. Someone someone wrote me today instead it's raining feathers. So welcome to the institute. I'm Liz Armstrong. Curator. Of Contemporary Art, and we are very pleased to be hosting the second live interview with Krista Tippett for her show and broadcast of on being. As. Many of you know Christa was here two months ago when she spoke with Hamilton and what was a fascinating and far-reaching conversation they covered everything from spiritual act of art making to the strange intimacy of museums where people can be alone together. The the this interview, and that one we're presented. In conjunction with the exhibition currently on view. In our target wing simply called sacred, which is a series of installations, the probe, the nature of the sacred within a secular multi-faith society. By, juxtaposing works of art from Multiple Times in places, the sacred exhibition invites visitors to explore historic and contemporary. Expressions of the divine, the spiritual, the essential in the beloved and to ponder the words meaning in their personal lives. I want to thank the MIA's affinity collectors, group contemporary art for their support of this program, and for helping us visits from artists such as Hamilton. Dario. And now let me just briefly introduce each of our guests. KRISTA Tippett Enduro. Christie needs little introduction on this stage. She's a peabody award winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author WHO's highly acclaim radio program on being fills a huge void in the public discussion of spirituality and faith. She's not afraid to. to discuss the big animating questions of human life from how do we want to live to what does it mean to be human? She and her guests explore meaning ethics and what is sacred miss the political cultural and technological turmoil that is first century life. Dario fo was houston-based artists who's known for his highly original repurposing of rare and archaic materials. Like a DJ sampling music and he just told me tonight, he was a DJ once Doria spins in shapes such unconventional materials as dinosaur fossils, meteorite remnants, hand bones, and hipbones, and pulverized vinyl from vintage records. He's been called materials poet. I think of him as a passionate alchemist who memorialize the past while finding new meaning in the tangled roots its history. He's a maker of extraordinary objects that are meditations on war, love death, spirituality, and healing. It's going to be really interesting to him talk about these objects without seeing them. But you can imagine and then you will see them So I'm really looking forward to this conversation. Please join me in welcoming Chris step and Dario. Thank you lose. It's great to be back at Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Feel like I'm an old timer now. So I welcome you. So, Dr. you grew up in San Antonio I grew up in Oklahoma. It did not snow in March where we came from. I've really been looking forward to this for several months as way I planned it. Thank you. Very much. So if I ask you a about the spiritual and religious background of your childhood, where would you start to think about what that means? San Antonio is maybe Catholic central. In America So it's It's hard not to be around that in San Antonio. My grandfather was a Baptist minister. I didn't grow up around ten so much but his is influence definitely. was there the Beckham ahead? And he was definitely a passionate passionate man. My mother. Religion in the home was not ever really an issue but as. I searched it out on my own. I'd asked my friends I could come to church. Catholic methodist I probably sample every every church. Afraid I had. And? I continually. Even at that early age was was very, very interested. So my childhood it I would say it was very self directed. maybe always within the background knowing that thing about my grandfather, there was still this mysterious thing that I didn't really understand. So, maybe it was fairly field that to the searching.

‘Are Christians Lazy?’ with Don Baker

"When you can just appeal to supernatural about taking care of the environment You hear these things that man can't break what God created or God will fix it in the second coming or climate change is a hoax or God said to have dominion over the earth in all sorts of conspiracies about one world government, and how climate change is going to push us towards the end times all this crazy stuff. unfortunately Christa fixing the environment. It's GonNa take a lot of effort. And Conservative Christians are leading the charge against it and could laziness be a part of that. White make why try to make the world a better place. Anyway you can just pray instead it gives you the feeling that you've done something profound, but you actually have done nothing at all, and ultimately it's a cop out guards. God's in charge of the world, and if it's screwed up, it's his. It's his failed attempt at at perfection, and why should it? It concern you on the also on the subject of prayer The Bible says that you can pray Jesus, says you can pray for anything you want, and just and get it and so the begs the question. Why do we still have the krona virus? Why are we still dealing with that? If you can just pray it away, I is it that Christians? Christians are too lazy to pray, or are they too lazy to chest test, Jesus, claim, and I think it's the latter. Because if they were actually detested, they'd figure out. The world doesn't work that way and Maybe maybe the answer seems to be a prey, and for some sort of answer, and and only spent effort exerted in rationalizing why there's no. No response How about where does the money go to your church? When Christians donate to church, do they check up on how the money's actually being used? Apparently, not because sex abuse is common in many dumb denominations and do do Christians realize that they're complicit in funding those things if they're donating the church and not demanding that the those things be fixed. So in summary maybe the best way for a Christian to be is lazy. why go out of your way to to to fix the problems and do why not just wait wait here until God calls you home for your next life.

Ronald Reagan's Address to Nation on the Challenger

"Our. I fire nation. Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God. Thank you

Sciences leading role in the restoration of Notre Dame, and the surprising biology behind how our body develops its tough skin

"Up. This week I talked with freelance science writer Christa. La- stay Lazar about the role of scientists at the Notre Dame cathedral both in the restoration of the structure and for the investigation of its past. Then we have the researcher. Felipe make arose. He's GonNa talk about how our skin forms a tough area against the outside world and how this barriers formation depends on phase separation a very hot area of cell biology first up today. We have freelance science writer. Crystallised J. LO Sarah. She wrote a featured this week on the scientists leading. Notre Dame's restoration after the April twenty nineteen fire and their use of the fire to probe the mysteries of this Cathedral. Hi Krista for Sarah Okay. The way you describe the scientific works it's going on at the Cathedral after the fire. It can almost be broken down into these categories by material stone glass led and would each has experts. It has its own challenges in its own mysteries all the teams that are working together on the restoration on these different categories of materials are working together in the same organization. Can you tell us a little bit more about this group? They're all working out at the same laboratory. Which is part of the Ministry of Culture? A description of it in the story was pretty amazing. Oh Yeah it's it's really phenomenal. It's the front. They have a wing of a seventeenth century castle. You had these Austira Iron Gates that lead up to it and you just have no idea of the treasures that are hidden in that area. Let's take this material by material first stone obviously Notre Dame is made of Stone Wood and some other pieces and I was really surprised by how dangerous getting the stone out of the building after the fire was the researchers actually had to use robots to get the stones out they did. You've got this vault. That said teeter on collapse because they have no idea how much forces have changed. They've absorbed water but they've also been affected by heat. So there are some stones that have suffered some heat-damaged crumble. At the same time there are also some stones that are just dangling from the ceiling and they now they might just drop at any moment. Everything is really delicately balanced. And you've got a thirty meter drop. That's a hundred foot drop coming down. So many stones are actually taken back to this French chateau from his French castle. A lot of them ended up store outside the Cathedral waiting to be put back in it but they do take some back to the French castle right. Most of them are stored in these tents that are all in front of the cathedral and sorting them. It's just hit and miss about of work of of sorting these. Because they're not going to lose anything anything that's about more than five centimeters long is going to be put back into the Cathedral. The wants to take back to study what they're looking for is to see different signs of heat damage so that can be seen through for example oxidation which contains the color of the stones. But that's only guy but it's still a pretty good guide. According to helmet heated got. You can go from red to black and then kind of surprisingly than to white and when it gets to white then you know that it's really bad because it's just powder they also are doing some testing on the water. Absorption it's these stones absorbed quite a bit of water. They can gain up to thirty percent of their weight. The water came from trying to put the fire out yes. The water came from the firefighters. Hosing down the federal. And it's taking up very very long time for them to dry sue. The fire was April the fifteenth and as of today. It's still drawing. They're still losing weight to water Evaporation yes they're still losing weight. Oh that's amazing. So what can they do with this information about how the stones change color? How was it helpful to know that this color change corresponds to how much heating went on with the stones? What they really need to know is the detail of which stones are likely to be damaged enough to need to be changed. Because there's some that may may not have fallen but they may have been so damaged that they're not going to be able to hold up the structure correctly anymore and at this delicate balance of forces going to be upset they also need to know how long it's GonNa take everything to dry because there's no point in testing for example the mortar between the stones until everything's finished drying because the border is continued to be affected by the changing forces. Right another dangerous aspect of this work is led. Notre Dame had a lot of lead tons of lead in the roof and spire and it was melted by the fire was also thrown out into Aerosol particles a yellow cloud escaped and it coated everything inside the building and possibly some of the nearby neighborhoods. What do we know about the contamination and the surrounding city? We actually don't know that much about the lead contamination. In the city. There was a lot of fear at the beginning. Parisians were very worried and rightfully so because lead toxicity can be bad for children and there are a lot of children living in Paris but the scientists here at this laboratory have found out that the vast majority of that roof did not go up in to smoke or cloud. It melted the melting point. Nos three hundred degrees Celsius. The evaporation point is one thousand seven hundred degrees Celsius. We didn't get anywhere near that. After about six hundred degrees Celsius than it created these little micro nozzles that went up into the air. An Aerosol so really a small portion of the roof did go up quite a bit of it actually fell down into the cathedral itself some did go outside and it floated away. You can see it in the videos of this Yellow cloud that would along the Seine but the scientists think that probably much of it did not drop down onto the ground her into the Sun River but just kept going following the son of further downstream so it may not have ended up in Paris at all. We don't know where it is yet but the researchers are consort right. They're going to be testing different areas of the city trying to see if there's a signature of the Notre Dame leads. They're able been able to test the lead from the roof to be able to get to the isotopes. This has allowed them to have an isotopic signature so when they find lead and there's lead Oliver Paris. You can't just a sample say. Oh that Kim furniture dom you don't know but because of the isotopic signature then you can. So they're trying to test that find out if the lead ended up in those areas. What about the lead levels inside the CDL? Are they a big concern for the researchers working there now? Because of the high amounts of lead in the cathedral there is a great concern with the work agencies so they are requiring very very strict procedures on lead safety first of all access is extremely limited just the bare minimum people that are allowed to get in the only access in is to go through a shower. Cabin may have to take off all their clothes. They have to wear these paper clothing paper. Underrun paper socks. You're allowed to stay for a maximum two and a half hours in the whole time there. You have wear these masks. That are really heavy and uncomfortable and they have breathing assistance. And it's not just the people it's also any equipment they bring in anything they bring in has to be either destroyed or washed thoroughly on the way out. 'cause as they leave the Cathedral Matra two and a half hours. They take all of their clothing off and they go through the shower and anything they brought with them also has to go through the shower and wash with all this protective gear all this rigorous cleanliness routine. They have to go through. It shouldn't be surprising that most of the work that they're doing right now is to get this led out of there. The lead is not being rude yet because the initial step is finding how to get the lead off without destroying this eight hundred fifty year old monument and all of its Precious art inside and this is an extremely expensive project to begin with and they're trying to be cost efficient as possible. So cost is really an issue. They can't just go in with The most expensive kind of equipment either and they need something that is can be explained to the people that are going to be doing it because the people who are cleaning are not going to be the scientists is going to be a company. That's going to be brought in and they're gonNA be technicians. That are going to come

Smith's home in the Hollywood hills my guest host Jamie is going to takeover from here to discuss the details of Krista Helms mysterious murder thanks Vanessa. Here's what we know about Christa Helm. She was born. Sandra Sandra Lynn Wolf file in Milwaukee Wisconsin and came from humble beginnings her childhood was riddled with abuse and violence from the various men. Her Mother Dolores Laurus brought home at sixteen. She became pregnant by a man named Greg Clement. Ten years her senior they had a shotgun wedding in Chicago. Oh but after. The baby was born Clement. Vanished helm was left to fend for herself waiting tables then she and fellow waitress Diana. The Mitchell were invited to attend a show at the playboy mansion in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. Both women were asked back to audition and they were hired on the spot. Neither of them actually ended up working as bunnies but the flirtation with a new lifestyle planted a seed in the girls heads then when Helm Helm turned twenty one she and Mitchell moved to New York to pursue modeling helm eventually got a job waiting. Tables at the gaslight club where she met her first Celebrity Boyfriend Buffalo Bill Safety Ray Bruce as a other influential friends included candy darling. The iconic transsexual model made famous in Andy Warhol's are and Broadway. Producers Stuart Duncan Pretty Soon Helms modeling career career took off. She moved into a luxury apartment and bought a brand new corvette. It's important to note however that there are quite a few claims that helm. Tom Didn't exactly become independently wealthy. It's likely that she was partially funded by the wealthy men. She kept in her company at twenty three see. The actress moved to Hollywood where she expanded upon her luxurious lifestyle in continued making connections while some might refer to helm as a Hollywood starlet starlet. The truth isn't quite so glamorous today her IMDB page has just a handful of credits and UN credited. Role on the nineteen seventies TV series Starsky and Hutch. A woman named Rita on an episode of wonder woman and a bit part in the C- Horror Film legacy the of Satan. Her One starring turn was in a film called. Let's go for broke an R.. Rated James Bond esque movie were held. Played the lead. Jackie broke but it didn't exactly break the box office. Perhaps the most interesting thing about helm was the lengths that she went to in her quest for fame. When acting didn't work out she tried singing? She secured a record deal for a disco album but the project fell apart before it was completed did though not before it spawned a steamy tryst with her female backup singer Patti Collins. The one single she made let's go for broke was featured in the film of the same name and then there was the little black book some claims. She kept it so she could one day. Write a tell all memoir others others thought it was a way to blackmail her way into the industry but no matter which way you spin it that book and her sex tapes are most likely the reason she was killed the strongest piece of evidence to support this conclusion is the lack of press attention surrounding her murder. It's led some to believe that one or many figures in Hollywood buried the story. Police interviewed more than seventy suspects. But each and every one of their leads allegedly allegedly went cold based on the number of vital organs that were hit during the attack some belief helm was assassinated others. Believe leave it was Lionel Williams who had committed a strikingly similar murder just one year prior more recently however police took DNA evidence evidence from Helms fingernails and as it turns out her attacker or one of her attackers was female so who killed Christa Helm from the Shah of Iran to Patty Collins to Sanford Smith. The list of suspects from the little black book is endless. There are many household names who are still alive today going about their days comforted by the fact that Helen's book and tapes never saw the light of day. The question is who wanted it most and who oh had the means to not get caught as for Christa Helms daughter Nicole. She still seeks justice for her mother's brutal well and untimely murder..

She was more famous for making headlines in the gossip columns hell moved to New York at Twenty One and California at twenty three but wherever she was is she was networking and it was easy. She was outgoing. personable and funny friends described her as gifted courageous. We just brilliant creative and a rare shining light with no fear not to mention.

"Nineteen seventy nine police believed it wasn't possible for lionel to have killed christa helm because he was in prison in michigan on february twelfth nineteen seventy seven when krista was killed so they didn't interrogate him about christopher's death it wasn't until thirty years later that the new cold case detectives realized the orig detectives were wrong lionel wasn't arrested in michigan until after krista was killed which means he could have potentially been in l a on the day that she died so does this mean that krista was murdered in a simple robbery gone wrong after all her purse was missing from the crime scene maybe the killer just wanted her money there is still some problems with this theory chris purse contain something far more important than her wallet it held her secret diary which hasn't been seen since the night of her murder a robber probably wouldn't bother to take a heavy journal with him if he just wanted christie's money and there's another problem with the robber theory krista was bludgeoned and stabbed twenty three times a robber wouldn't waste time stabbing his victim over and over he would want to get the money and run chris killer was clearly taking their time this murder was personal fueled by hate it doesn't match the mo of a career criminal or a robber which means we need to look at other suspects luckily detective soon found someone else to focus on in july of nineteen seventy seven a woman came forward with an urgent message for police a man had confessed to her that he was the one who murdered christa helm did chris killer really just confessed her slaying and if so would police really be able to bring him to justice.
