CPS, CTU Avoid Teacher Lockout, Remote Learning to Continue During ‘Cooling Off' Period
"Chicago. Public schools is in session tomorrow. A lockout and strike have been averted but for how long amanda finicky joins us now with more. Amanda does yes within the past hour or so we got word from both. cps and the chicago teachers union that remote learning will continue at least for tomorrow and wednesday. Today was to have been the first day back in the classroom for kindergarten. Through eighth graders who wanted to return to physical school instead. It was another day of virtual learning as negotiations progress. This is a sort of last minute. Maneuvering that is frustrating for whiplash parents like ryan griffin. It's a fiasco for parents for twenty four hundred students. I can't underestimate how disruptive that is to two families lives especially. you're balancing sharing for other family members. I did speak with griffin earlier this afternoon before the latest news. Which is this. Cps today says that talks led to an important milestone and as such it will not go forward with locking out teachers of their virtual classrooms for refusing to show up in person. Tomorrow or wednesday. And if they're not locked out of the classroom then the union says teachers are not going to strike meaning that they will again show up tomorrow to teach virtually as they as most at least have been. Since last march both sides are signaling optimism that this may be the end of the back and forth we have secured agreement on one other open issue and made substantial progress on a framework that we hope will address the remaining issues. We are calling for a forty eight hour cooling off period that will hopefully lead to a final resolution on all open issues as a result of the progress. We have made and as a gesture of good phase four now. Teachers will retain access to their google suite. That's a statement from both mayor. Lori lightfoot and cps chief janice jackson the chicago teachers union meanwhile calling it heartening that the lightfoot administration will continue bargaining saying that its members. Don't want to strike in this. I know in just a bit. You're going to be speaking with c. You leadership it is not by the way just chicago. That has their eyes on this. Reporters pressed the white house press secretary about chicago central strike this afternoon. She said that. President joe biden respects mayor lightfoot and also teachers noting that first lady jill biden is one. He chose the mayor and the unions to work this out. They're both prioritizing the right things which is ensuring the health and safety of the kids and teachers and working to make sure that children in chicago are getting the education they deserve so he is hopeful. We are hopeful they can reach common ground as soon as possible. Mayor lightfoot meanwhile on national cable news this morning saying she was pushing to seal the last few remaining but tough issues. We're pushing as hard as we can to seal these last few remaining but tough issues. It's not about we don't want to be safe. It's absolutely not about we. Don't respect the rights of organized labor. Chicago's a labor town but this is about balancing a lot of different issues but mostly also about putting our kids i. She says if both sides do that they will reach a in. No time but parents that i talked to stay throughout all of this. They're feeling ignored. Mom of three courtney. Ritsma says she has gone out of her way to learn what schools are doing to make classrooms safe while covid remains a threat participating in all of the cps acts. Ask the experts series that they had I was attending the school town halls. And every time i went it was like left me frustrated because i wasn't getting answers at like most parents at the events. We weren't getting answers to to most of our concerns to our most basic questions. Why she and a group of grass roots parents planned a sick out her kids were purposely absent from their virtual classrooms today stem. Her daughter wrote letters to the principal and learned about boycotting in civil action with the scout. We are trying to kind of doing action that hits the school where it counts. And if you know anything about cps you know that attendance is something they track like crazy and so this is an easy way for us to get a clear representation of one of weakness. And here's how many cps however could not share attendance numbers quickly so it is hard to say how big a success the sickout was now three weeks ago. Another group of parents formed another grassroots group. This is the chicago parents. Collective father of three ryan griffin says. He understands why. Cps wasn't ready to go back to school in august but he says now there's been six months to plan for it but now that we've prepared why not now for at least those that are finding rebel or is not working and that's a big population of students more than double in size of the next largest school district in illinois hunter. We ignore those parents choice for that option griffin says he wants teachers and the district's to at least take some baby steps to get a path so that these students can eventually be in school five days a week safely. Is that post vaccinations. That would be great. We need optimism and we need our leaders to agree on something instead of tuning into press conferences and twitter. The day before. We're supposed to go back to school. He says leaders from side should be setting an example for children. He says parents everyone went through strife back in the twenty nineteen strike and he says they shouldn't have to go through it again during a pandemic now chicago is in the clear at least four two days but there is still no complete deal in in a statement issued the parents. Yes says that while today was he bake agreements several outstanding issues that had been outstanding. Since the summer. They must continue to make what they called meaningful progress because time is running out. Now brenda back to you. Amanda thank you and of course as we just heard the impasse over reopening chicago. Public schools has yet to be broken but the two sides say they have made
Dating with Herpes: Disclosure, Stigma & Healing

Well despite how things going for a lot of people at this point right now There is a lot of overwhelm on my end in a positive way so Just this past week was two weeks ago While something positive positive people now is a nonprofit organization in a met with my board about me paying myself salary in being able to partner working to raise more money so that we can extend the services that we provide which were providing mental health related services for people who have experienced sexual trauma. That's what i want to eventually be able to say but right now for where we are. I'm basically paying for people to get their if he if they needed so Where we are right now. I got that approved in now. I mean conversations with some sexual health related organizations about partnering with them on their grant applications in getting funding. So things suddenly got very real for me. That that's great. Congratulations congrats on some needed support because with a herpes diagnosis. Oftentimes your medical practitioner will focus on the physical side but not necessarily the mental health side. And one of the things that i've learned throughout just doing this work and recording the podcasts and all of the different conversations. I've had with people not only with hiv but also have hiv or who've experienced a media gonorrhea. Syphilis diagnosis is that there is a direct connection between sexual health and mental health. And i think that that intersection is really wear stigma resides and until that gets addressed from that perspective. Like i think there's an over emphasis on the fact that someone has. Sei being Just like oh. This is sex related when it's also so mental related and then that part is completely goes unnoticed. Oftentimes like winds. Someone's being given a diagnosis well. Let's back up just a moment For folks who haven't listened to your podcast yet. But i know they will i. Can you tell us your story and why you started something positive for positive people. I will keep this as brief as possible. Because it's such a long story but The most important things that i've been positive for general. Hse to which is the virus that causes herpes outbreaks. For about eight years. Now and for the first four to five years of my diagnosis. I just kind of was doing things away that i knew to do them with. Just take care of abidi manage my stress And just keeping my immune system of his best i could. It was year four. Five into my diagnosis that i began to come across different communities of people. With herbie's in this is a in various social platforms as well as dating websites. And once. i got there. Like i was excited to be there because there were so many other people who were living with this when i get your diagnosis despite what the statistics say you're the only person you know who has virus unless someone has opened up to you pass or less than one opens up to you recently. After your experience you know for many of us were the only person that we know. And so i got into these communities in start socializing. I'm dating in. Life is great for me. But here and there i would find it. There was someone who expressed wanting to end their live after their diagnosis. So suicide idea even suicide attempts and after seeing that a few times it wasn't just like a one off thing was pretty calm and so i began to reach out to these people go. Hey you know it's not that bad and this is probably the worst thing you can say to someone who is having suicide at the asian. So what i started to do was a lot of these. People didn't look like means they didn't have my life experiences so to speak. So for instance like me saying that to a younger white woman or an older hispanic man or someone of a different ethnicity or age range or geographical location didn't really carry the same way as it would from someone may have looked like them or had like similar cultural background so i began just recording conversations with people that perhaps we otherwise wouldn't hear from These are people who are okay with their diagnosis. There's good days and bad days due to the stigma but these people who would probably never hear from about their experience were willing to just converse with me on a recorded platform for me to send to these people directly after a while To give you an idea like there's so many people that this was happening for that. I got overwhelmed with just sending emails and butchering the email address. Having the recent making sure they got it in all of that. So i decided to put all of these recordings up into one place which turned into something positive for positive people podcast platform

The most charming like nineties thing ever. Yeah, yeah, like sometimes. The only thing I can think of more ninety S, and that would be if they fed each other's Tamagotchis. But yeah I mean it's. It seems really sweet. You know they both. They both come from the same place kind of poor backgrounds from the northwest broken families like they really understood each other in that way, and they're both really ambitious. You know at the same time this is going on, you know she has whole and holes. First Album came out and ninety one pretty on the inside, and they're working on their second album while they're in this relationship. This a good time to bring up another rumor, which is that Kirk Vein wrote all of Courtney Love's music Oh yeah, and it's the belief, but link women aren't biologically able to rock. I mean okay so as someone who's in a relationship with another creative person, you know my husband and I are both riders. We talk about our writing all the time. We share ideas all the time. That's just part of the process, and if we're getting down to the nitty gritty like. Yes, he probably did come up with like a riff or two on the album, but also she. She helped him right heart shaped box like you know what I mean, and not just because she sent him a heart shaped box like literally like there's there's a journal entry of him talking about how they wrote. Right hurts you. You know what people in relationships, too. It's interesting that this is the theory that takes something that is really lake romantic and turns it into something sinister. Turns it into something one way. Yeah, right did. It's like she's this fraud. Because she's taking his ideas and putting her name on them, whereas he, of course, the genius of their relationship is just like spouting these ideas everywhere, and is one hundred percent responsible for his own creations, and like present responsible for hers like there's no cross mixing. Yeah, yes, I mean it's such a simple rumor to because it's just like. She had a career before she met him. She had an album. She wrote songs. There's a book it's called dirty blond, and it's the diaries of Courtney. Love and it's just all these like scraps of paper you know from her childhood and adolescence and there's just like. You can see the through line of like the holes lyrics in her writings through her adolescence and her twenties as you can with most musicians as you can with Kurt if you look at. If you look into people's diaries and journals like you're going to see that stuff and. I just want to read something in. You know that little thirty, thirty three and a third book series about albums so I read the one about. The house which is really good, it's written by a female music critic name and win Crawford according to talking about when they got their first major record contract sue for their first album..

"It's murky because it would have been right around the time that she was like about to get pregnant again, but. No one knows exactly when she found out, she got pregnant. We do know that she found out she got pregnant. She knew after that that she had done drugs when she was pregnant before she realized she was pregnant and then got off. Yeah, it's so. It's complicated and like like. We said at the very beginning like she has a complicated person who has. has done some bad things you know and like. It's easy to say like. Oh, God, if you. If you knew that there was a chance, you might be pregnant. If you are having unprotected sex, you shouldn't have been doing you know I. Think it's really easy to say those things, and it's not a responsible thing for someone to do drugs when they're pregnant. But I. Think the level to which this was bad for. Them are get so severe so so I lean. who someone who is so worried about his reputation, and what the world thinks of him, and now his family, his devastated by this article, according to just like whatever blow it off like and he is just so angry. And Courtney a number of times cites this as the beginning of like the end for him. The Vanity Fair article because she just thinks it's a sign that he can't handle what what the is going to do to him and then as a as a family. Part of that is that. Kurt and Courtney Typical Gen xers grew up in broken families like children of of divorces latch key kids. Latchkey kids and that was just a really heartbreaking for Kerr and I think they really wanted to have some kind of normal family. I'm laughing when I say that because I'm like what kind of normal family is his test to parents that are like on drugs all the time but The really did like love their child so much, and we're so tender with her and so tender with each other and. I think that he really wanted to break that cycle of like them. Having such a bad childhoods, their parents and wanted to have good childhood this before she even has the beatty. This article comes out. There's also the thing I mean. There's so much shame associated with addiction to most people that are addicted to substances or not like wild about it, and like I'm an addict, and it's awesome. Most them like go through the cycle of telling themselves that they're never gonNA, do it again, and then giving into their cravings, and especially with heroin where the cravings are. Bad and the withdrawal is so bad I mean seeing yourself and your wife depicted as heroin addict and having the country like debating your heroin habit, which is probably something you're really ashamed of. Is Just Tripoli upsetting? Yeah, so shortly after this comes out, they have the baby. And a representative in the Los Angeles Department of Family Services Kellyanne child services comes to the hospital with a copy of Vanity Fair, and says we have to see this. Oh my God. Oh, wow, sort of the authorities! Take Francis being away. Yes, they aren't allowed to take her home. And I think a week later. There's a court hearing and it's.

I guess I'm eleven. Yeah and hurt was like an outspoken feminist. Typical like early nineties way. What other people weren't doing time totally and the hair metal bands definitely weren't doing definitely not yeah so. Courtney get really serious like immediately after. Kurt show in Chicago. Yes, they get big immediately serious, so this is this is October of nineteen ninety one and they're married in February nineteen ninety-two. How a while four three four months! Yes, chance so they get. They get really serious really quickly and heroin comes into their relationship very early Ocho. Neither one of them were using before. No, they were both of them separately. Corny had already had a problem with heroin at some point. And had gone to Rehab and had cleaned up. Kurt had tried heroin. I would save probably like eight to ten times or something like that at that point. What's really interesting is that he had written in his journals that he wanted to become a junkie. And this is really I'm GonNa? Let me get this this passage up. If you guys don't mind, I know you like read passages. You do like reading. So this is from this book called Heavier Than Heaven which is a beautiful biography of Kurt Cobaine. This passage is about right after they met. They reunite at pro-choice benefit in Los Angeles backstage. They seem very much together. And many remarked how they made the perfect rock-n-roll couple yet later in the evening behind closed doors, their relationship to Comoros destructive bent. For the first time Kurt brought up the idea of doing heroin courtney pause for a moment, but then agreed be score dope when his hotel the beverly, Garland prepare the drugs. He injected her according to stand to handle needle herself, so kerr the former needle phobia handled things for himself, and for her. ooh, after getting high, they went out, walking came upon a dead bird, Kirk hold three feathers off the animal and pass wanted to courtney holding the to others in his hand. This is for you. This is for me, he said. And then holding the third feather in his hand, he added in this for our baby. We're GONNA. have she laughed and later remembered? This is the point when she first fell in love with him. And then he goes on to talk about how at that point? Heroin was no longer just kind of a recreational thing like he had already kind of gotten it in his head and I. Think part of it is that. It helped his stomach problems and let me read this as well so this is from Kurt Journal when I got back from our second European Tour Sonic Youth I decided to use heroin on a daily basis because of an ongoing stomach ailment that I had been suffering from for the past five years, and that had literally taking me to the point of wanting to kill myself for five years every single day of my life every time I swallowed a piece of food I would experience in excruciating burning, nauseous.

"They're trying to find his dealer. In those days. There are some accounts of him coming and going from home. There were people house sitting for them while they were gone, and these people were also really messed up on drugs, so their accounts are sort of murky. So turns out what happened was that Kurtz found one of his guns that had taken away and. He shot and killed himself in the RIM above their heritage, which was like a separate building from their house. So, no one thinks to go up there and the person that eventually finds him intellect actress, who is just going to their house to do some work and he happens to go up there because no one answers the front door. So I think. A lot of the rumors begin from this investigator Tom Grant. Who at some point in the next several months comes out and says. I don't think, Kurt. Cobain killed himself I think. Courtney had him murdered. What this private I guess! He comes out publicly and says this. And he has recorded. He records all of his conversations, so he has tapes and tapes of phone calls that he had with Courtney. I smell a book deal. This guy like try to cash. This guy's really interesting. I gotta be honest as I was researching, I was trying really hard not to dig so deep into the conspiracy theories, because I just don't WanNa give them as much credence as we give to the things that seem more with. About a person, but it is a rabbit hole for sure, and he has a website you know. I'll let you guys know but I don't think we should. People can find it if you will find themselves. It looks appropriately GIO cities. I, can say it in my head. It is like it's a black background with green like laying words right with leered lakeside -ment multiple Seidman you yes, and like weird like flashy gifts of like tax. Yeah, and eighty percent of the links are dead. Yeah, and it's like at this point. It's very charming and historic, but it's not trustworthy and I'm just sort of like if you want people to take you seriously. Do you take your website seriously. I, but that has been taking their website seriously so I think that answers the question. They like this lex boss. And this big sense I feel like whenever there's a conspiracy that comes from some sort of seed of something shady going on. There are weird shady things like around his death like the fact that he had been missing for several days, but I honestly think a lot of it is, and then all of these people were on lots of drugs, and their accounts of what happens are not gonna be absent of holes. That's not like an excuse, and it's not I don't know it's honestly just like. Like, a lot of people on drugs and they just don't remember what happened while I'm even people who weren't on drugs.

"So to give you a little little context, so around the time Kirk Kobean those last few months of his life, they had been married for two years. They have their daughter Francis. Bean. WHO's about a year and a half? I think at that point. Nirvana's is probably most famous band in the world I would say like I. I'm sure that fluctuates, but you know at the time they were, and Kurtz had been suffering from heroin addiction. For probably twelve to eighteen months at that point like really serious while heroin, addiction and I hope feels like something that is by definition counter cultural getting that huge. We've just be I. Don't know I think it's like why Blend Courtney. Love when you can blame fame, and it's right there. That's my. And I. Just want to say right now is a disclaimer like it's really important to me when we're talking about this that I like focus on Courtney, but I think it's impossible to talk about her without talking about her now because. Their lives were so intertwined Ryan they were so famous, and they both had such an impact on each other things that were happening to him, because of his career directly impacted her and vice versa, so it's like yeah, you know as I was thinking about this I kept thinking like there's there's one funny interview with them is in. There's good documentary that came out a few years ago called the montage of heck. and. There's a home video of them where they're just sort of like bickering about something in a light hearted way, and she's like. Why are you always the good one and I'm always the bad one in. It's clearly like something. They understood about their relationship, but it's also just like immediately. The roles they fell into. In the world, and how they were perceived, that is true i. mean the ways in which Mayo rockstars get to be messes in public is very different than the way that female rockstars get to be messes. Yeah, and how can Morrison is like this angel of rocks still? Yeah right and I mean curtain Courtney both did a lot of drugs. Those were in and out of Rehab, but But I think we collectively attend to forgive Kurt for that a lot more, but yeah, forgive her for that. Yeah, so the run up to his suicide is all of this kind of getting worse, so he. He was using heroin pretty frequently. Were you know I would say a year or eighteen months? And then that just snowballed I mean like that? That just got worse and worse and. At the beginning of Nineteen, ninety four, the band had kind of Nirvana as. They weren't doing a whole lot. They weren't actually like their album had come out the previous fall. They had started to tour a couple times, but Kurt canceled the tours because he was struggling, but you know Kirk..
