"One but then even just little things. The past several months have offered lots of chances to let go of preconceived notions of. What's why you started to order. Its self as a kind of violence. Yeah the word itself. Order or denim comes from the latin for loom which is arranging of threads neat lee in a loom And then it became to be used metaphorically as the way that people sit under the ranks of king or an army general order itself. You know it is based on the discounting of certain qualities within people to make them fit in this unnatural form on the loom a think that with all the rebellion and the unrest. It's like people who have been trapped for so long under this violent order and no one has been listening. Look i was. I was spat out near the top of this social hierarchy. I'm queer so knocked me down a little. But i'm a white woman. I'm near the top and our world is so disorienting ensure that can feel frightening but it is this moment for me. I just keep thinking about the concept of order as this violent structure and things have to change. What is the most revelatory order. Overthrowing thing that you learned about a fish they've done these studies that show that that they will actively seek out the soothing of either the touch of another fish or sometimes even the touch of a human hand that they've grown comfortable with and that like us when they are afraid when they are in some kind of physical pain there is this strange power and being held and like it's not some whizbang They can memorize ten thousand places which they can also do.

"Funded works and the freedom of information act now for free information act is this american legislature that established a system. Where if your tax money paid for it. Which is everything really. You can submit a request to the proper channels and ask to get scans of some information as long as it's not classified or state secret than you can usually get it adding to that. Which is something that's really convenient for. Me is if something has been a foyer target. So if someone's asked for disclosure the documents been disclosed then it'll get posted on some website. It depends on which agency. And there's this thing called the four. Yes search where he can look through past foia request data. So that's convenient for me producing the podcast on the timelines. I do because a foia. Requests can take forever like i submitted one in march that. I'm still waiting to get information from got accepted but it it just takes time. So that's for your government. Archives are also really good in the states in canada. They're also pretty good. Those are the only ones i've dealt with personally. But usually you can find a whole lot of information about any government funded project so you get stuff like progress. Reports proposals funding paperwork. You can get a really good picture of the story. Just from like the national archives talk on archives and other resource if you're dealing with something that was done at a university our university archives It's the same kind of deal. Universities usually keep entire wings of libraries. If they're big enough full of just paperwork about the university or about alumni so for instance once again basic a great example. Because i really had to beat feet. I'm pat episode dartmouth university which is where basic was developed has a really good archive and easy to access system. But they have this collection called the john kennedy collection which is just a bunch of papers that were donated by john. Kennedy's family after he died and that has a whole lot of really juicy bits about the development of basic in it. That's if you've read the article. I wrote for vice earlier this year about the dope programming language. That's where i got all the information for that piece. So i guess to summarize how i find research material. It's a whole lot of work and you just kind of have to know where to go for certain topics and once again with archives. sometimes.

"Well i realize now. I've i've got to make more money i've got a i. I'm not you know you don't wanna make your life all about money. But now you've got this kid to provide for you gotta make sure you put food on the table. Gotta make sure you can have opportunities. And he said oh. Don't worry about that. People are always worried that kids are going to going to force you to have less money but kids are little money bags and and what he meant by that is you. Just feel so much more Motivation to go out there and really work hard and be able to provide because no longer is it just about you and your wife be able to go to a nice dinner on friday night now. It's really about setting this kid up for success and giving him not only the opportunities that you had but hopefully many more opportunities than you yourself had growing up. Yeah great stuff. Mike lee and i've had andrew on the podcast here first class. Father all the way for sure and you mentioned too. How the kids. They're watching your every move. And they're absorbing so what would you consider to be the top values that you're hoping to instill in your son growing up. Well i think it's it's very important to get all the way down to the foundation when you're raising when you are being raised and when you're raising a kid you want to give them a solid foundation because eventually they're going to do whatever they want and you're not going to be able to say anything about it so the hope is that you you set them up with a good foundation that will guide them in life and andrew breitbart the patron saint of hollywood conservatives. Very famously said. Politics is downstream of culture. And there's a lot of truth to that it's not the whole story but surely you have to take that further and say culture is downstream of religion cult and culture. Come from the same root word. What a culture worships will define that culture and and ultimately all of our political questions even are inter inter personal questions have a religious foundation. Cardinal manning famously said all human conflict is ultimately theological and so. I'm i'm a catholic revert. We don't say convert. Because when i was a little kid i was baptized but then reverted to the faith and so i wanna make sure that my kid and not just that he has a lot of toys and not just that he knows how to have you know spell words and do his numbers but i want to make sure that he understands values and i want to make sure he understands the root of those values so that when his values are challenged he can explain why these things are true in the first epistle of peter. He says that you have to always be able to give an account of the faith that lives within you. So i'm really trying to focus to make sure that i'm taking my faith seriously and that i am instilling that in my obviously we're not even at the gu-guy stage yet so he's not writing catholic apologetic books but but you wanna make sure that he he understands the the reality as it is and you know it certainly is we see it and then hopefully we can give an explanation to him because there are a lot of people are trying to sell really upside down world views and you wanna make sure that that he doesn't become a victim of that when when he's older because he lacks a strong foundation and then tapping into that. Michael i mean i i have four kids myself. My oldest is fifteen. Two teenagers You know they're just about to get into it as far as the next level of education which is a little scary to right now with what's going on and how you saved. People are trying to sell these ideas. I want my kids to be able to debate the issues of the day. What you're you're a guy that went through the college system now this. Obviously i've had the the. He came out with his daughter. They both went to dartmouth university and had different experiences. From the time periods. They went and it was a major change in the culture on campus. So how how about somebody like you. How were you able to go through college and come out a conservative in mostly democratic or liberal leaning school like what what was that. What was that like for you. What was that experience. So yes the school is very very far left wing and so there are two ways you can go either. You are seduced. And ben brought in to that dominant leftist culture or you become a knuckle dragging reactionary to the right of attila the hun. Because you're you know you're constantly surrounded by the arguments and the culture of the left so in some ways this is a real advantage because it forces you to really examine what you think and really be able to defend what you think and in some cases maybe you'll discard some views but in other cases maybe you'll double down and you you'll be able to explain it in a granular level that i think a lot of people who are just kind of culturally left wing and it's just kind of in the air. It's it's the the air that they breathe th. They're not really going to be able to do that. Sort of thing so there was a handful of people who who went through my college and they came out pretty conservative And i'm glad that that happened for me but you know the the former dean of yale. College don keagan fame good conservative professor one of the few left..

It sure seems like it considering that it peaked at sixty thousand dollars earlier this year in earlier this week it was at like thirty eight. I think it was just yesterday or the day before so You know you never know. He may continue to go down. But if you can afford to To get into a little bit you know might not be a terrible idea. Learn more about it. I don't never jump into something before. You've actually done some due diligence and taking the time to really kind of have a grasp over some of the new concepts that are involved. Bitcoin dot com can help you do that. If you're not brand new to crypto than you can get the latest news headlines about cryptocurrency over on their news website and that's news dot bitcoin dot com as we continue here. We're talking about college. Students and their difficulties now. They've already been this sort of anxious. Depressed bunch and now. It's even worse than it's ever been. Bonnie you have been around a lot of young people you know you're you're still pretty young yourself Would you say that. There's a lot of people that you know that that liked to claim that they have anxiety. Yeah like everyone that i know. It's everyone pretty much everyone your age basically right like ninety five percent. It was never like that when i was growing up. It's really weird. Like i never heard the term anxiety. Any sort of meaningful. Like i have this thing sort of sense until the last maybe fifteen years twenty years. I think i never started doing that. Because i mean it's something i don't think it's real sound like i'm one of those people who were like. It's completely own your heading. You're doing it for attention. It's not like that. But i do think that if you claim it for yourself then you're going to start acting like that a lot more you own it you own it like i have anxiety can't handle driving into a city. Oh i can't handle this then acting up and you can't what you call a self fulfilling prophecy yeah. I think that i never really did that. Because like in high school my sister started like acting really anxious and saying she had anxiety. And i've just always kind of done the opposite of everything my sister does. I don't know. I just really didn't want to have like. I really didn't want to be like that for some reason. She wasn't a role but she was like a counter role model. Basically everything you didn't want to be and for some reason. I don't know why and like as a child. I was always like that with her. But for whatever reason. I never started doing that so just i don't know i can do whatever i wanna do like. I drove from san antonio domain. Such a better outlook on things is that you and people used to think that way people used to be taught. Hey look you know whatever you apply your mind to. you can become and from what i've seen. That's still true about the world that is the way life is just people have been and maybe this is a bigger deeper plot against humanity by the elites who are trying to have been very successful at indoctrinating people and and controlling them. Maybe you can't do this yourself. You need the government to help you or some expert or whatever experts to help you. Yeah and that is a very disempowering belief system and what you say about yourself is inevitably. What is true about yourself. You can start telling a different story immediately like every day you can create yourself new. I know that sounds hard to believe and it may not be something that you can do immediately. But it's something that you can start working towards. I mean you would have to be like a master at life to be able to snap your fingers and go from being. Let's say a completely negative person who's always angry and doesn't believe in themselves to being a positive person who's always looking forward to the future and does believe in themselves. That's that's that's a tough change. I think everybody goes in kind of like maybe not. Because you're pretty constant by everybody. I mean most people liked. I mean kind of going waves of that like maybe they'll start realizing they're being depressed and then they'll be like you know what i'm gonna get off my feet and like make today a positive day or whatever but there are a lot of people who are just like this is part of my brain chemistry. I'm anxious in these. Nothing i can do about it. So if i'm driving into the city and it's really really busy i'm gonna like start crying and freaking out. I've seen this with my own eyes. That's why i'm using bats as an example like there's a lot of traffic. I need to pull over like i'm literally having an anxiety attack right now and i'm glad they're not on the road rio in that case because i certainly wouldn't want him to continue to drive in that case but i think you're right. It is all in their head and and they don't believe that and i've also known somebody like this. I'm not gonna say who who it is because that's irrelevant but not that. They had the driving issue but that they believe that like depression because the other side of this is depression. So that's what this article is about. The college students. Lots of anxiety. Lots of depression usually both within the same person and the same thing about people who are constantly depressed. Is they believe that. It is a chemical imbalance in their brain. And that's what people told is all well. You just have chemical imbalance. You need to take this pill. How long do i need to take the pill for the rest of your life. It's not like it's impossible that you could have a chemical imbalance by. You could probably change your mind. Well that's where. I wanted to go with this and we can get back to the story about the college students here in a moment but the interesting thing about depression at least and i suspect you do a similar study about anxiety and it wouldn't surprise me if it had already been done. But i've seen that. They a placebo study on depression and low and behold the little red sugar pill that for listeners. Don't know placebo is just a sugar pill. It's just there's nothing there that's that could act. There's no chemical that could act on a person's alleged problem but you tell the person. Hey this little red pills going to cure your depression and you know what in a lot of cases it does. It does cure depression. So that is to me clear evidence that what we're dealing with here is a mind over matter yet and a problem and you can still show that information to a depressed person. And they'll reject it. And i don't care if there's somebody listening like getting all triggered because they're like i have depression. No i have depression. I have to take zoloft I will literally not be able to survive like my boyfriend was literally cannot from a house that had just like no will to live for like weeks and i for some reason bought of the words of hannah montana saying don't stay down and i was just like you know what hannah montana i'm gonna i'm just gonna i'm just gonna stay down and i just didn't i just made myself shopping. Depressed literally like not changing my sheets like eating cheetos in bed and stuff like that. I was really depressed when you first got kicked out but you made a change. I decided in thoughts and yet but just worked always like smiling and stuff like that. Like we'd go to and stuff and i've just like people be asking me about you and i'd be like just like really positive about it like i don't know what he's going to get out but i know he's going to get out and you do. You helped me. While i was in jail. I mean i pretty good at staying positive. But you know when you're facing the rest of your life in prison and it can look a little dark right when you're up against this organization that you know. They have no limit to the amount of money that they can spend the amount of time they can spend to ruin your life and your friends lives can get it can get difficult. I mean i wouldn't say it was ever anything but generally positive but sometimes the dark the darkness rises a little bit. And have you on the outside. Being positive was helpful for me to the number here is two zero. Two three zero three six nine. Check out our sip. Call options over. Freetalklive dot com. If you get the time set that up give up give us a try their. You'll actually sound better so it's worth the ten minutes or whatever that it takes to get it set up once you have it set up. It's like an instant way to call it and it's super easy so if you want to comment on anxiety and depression are you somebody who has been these things and has defeated them without the use of some sort of chemical want to hear from you tonight. This is free. Talk live broadcasts from the very first day of the porcupine freedom festival although we are not at it because i'm not allowed to leave the house without government permission do these insane bail restrictions but there's a lot of people expected to be there this week and from what i hear. There's already a bunch on the campground. At rogers campground more coming up. Free talk live some good news on the phone number. Six zero. three line is back. That's why the two of number wasn't working earlier I got information from voiceover. Ip provider that they were in the process of like date actually gotten the number reported over and it was supposed to happen sometime today. I guess happened right before the show. Even though i haven't gotten official word we did just test out the old six three number and it's back so six. Oh three two eight three sixty one sixty if you've been trying to call the other number two two number it's not gonna work. That number has been replaced completely by this six three numbers so so much. I'm glad about that. I don't wanna have a dc area code whenever new hampshire area code and we used to have a toll free number but honestly we don't have fewer calls on a long distance number. Because i don't think anyone pays for long distance anymore. I mean unless you have like a really old landline phone or something. Every cell phone plan basically includes free long distance. I mean you probably never paid for long distance in your life. Have you bunny not that. I know it's like a concept that is going to be lost to the past. And i think that's a good thing so you can join the show. We've been talking about anxiety and depression and The number here is six zero. Three two eight three sixty one sixty look depression as you pointed out. Bonnie is the thing that i think all humans go through at some point in their lives. We we've all had. I mean if you've been around for long enough you've had some sort of bad thing happen to you or a loved one that can throw you for a loop and puts you into a real negative place mentally. If you live in america you probably like suffer from depression from just the fact that you're literally a slave in you. Don't make as much money as you should be making. Maybe they don't realize that's the reason why they're depression exist but yeah if you're barely making ends meet. I could see that as being a pretty frustrating situation. My ninety percent of your money is going into taxes whether you realize it or not and those taxes are going to bomb innocent peaceful people all around the world. That's a pretty depressing thing i mean. There's there's a lot you can be depressed about. People that gas lighting you on the news about you know the fact that your countries actually the best in the world literally treats you in the world like crap so there are a lot of excuses to be depressed and ultimately i think we were both in agreement that we want to speak for you but that we think that it's mental that it's something that you can just make a decision now. It may not be an easy decision to make. Especially if you've been programmed with the idea that you have some sort of imbalanced that it's a chemical thing and look. I don't want to deny that that could be true for somebody out there like maybe that really is true that there are people out there who just cannot decide to be different about this. But i don't think that's the the majority of them neither at all. And i don't think that i think there are some that. Do it for attention. That whether they do it consciously for attention or not that's ultimately what they get out of it right like if they say they're anxious or they say they're they're depressed deny that that's real a stimulants of wordings thing. That would that some people get out of their behavior like some people like with dpd Order wine personality disorder. Yeah they can't like except that things are not the that the bad things happening in their lives or their faults and you know they they wanna keep going into this bad Same cycle over and over and like they're getting attention for their bad behavior. Even though it's bad it's still encourages. That's an encouraging thing for them. Like bad behavior. I mean that's ultimately what children do. Yeah like dpd. Basically is like an eternal child and adult child. Yeah somebody who acts out. Because they know mom or dad is going to baby them or pay attention to them if they they're acting out and my life with that sets hardware. I'm talking about it. Yeah so again. Going back to the idea that depression can actually be cured by a placebo suggests strongly that depression is all in your head so we go back to the story about these college students who study at dartmouth university that they did over the last year looking not just the last year. They started looking at the students in two thousand seventeen so when they first came to college they were freshmen. They looked at them every single year. They have them carrying around a tracking device their own in this case their phone but with specific app on it that the the dartmouth college. The guy that did the study created called student life. Or you helped develop this. It sits in the background of your phone collecting information about where you are. What you're doing on your phone. How often how many minutes or whatever seconds that. You're spending on your phone every day. The amount of sleep that you're getting and generally how sedentary the person is and the phone can easily track this scott gyroscopes and compasses and movement sensors. So it's easy to do. They compared the data that they received with the general public's online search habits found that students reported higher levels of stress as people were seeking information about cova fatigue quote interesting cova fatigue is a unique tool that allows us to understand how the quote unquote new normal way. Maybe associated with poor mental health comes said dante mac. The first author of the study campbell. And jeremy hawkins a lecturer on and brain sciences said they noticed the beginnings of behavioral shift. Last string early findings published in june of last year saw students were more sedentary and visited fewer locations because in many cases they weren't allowed to go to most places then previously an indication that they followed shelter in place guidelines implemented by state and local governments and their own college rates. Anxiety and depression soared during the spring break of twenty twenty a time of year when students usually sleep more and report. Low levels of stress. Campbell and hopkins found these levels have yet to return to pre pandemic normal according to researchers before the pandemic set in some students definitely were depressed or anxious but on average students weren't scoring high on either of these metrics. We have these massive changes in mental health and behavior due to covid. We've never seen anything like that. No let's blame. What actually needs to be blamed government. It's the state and the state schools. These government systems and government schools. They are the ones who told people how to live. And also the obedience of people of course. The people have been trained to do what they're told have been trained to go along to get along and so they obediently went along with whatever stupid restrictions were put on them. These arbitrary controls over their lives and surprise suicides are up and that's why like non coercion is important. Because the real imbalance in these people's lives is the their imbalance of just the freedom to do whatever they want to do their lives. That would make them happy So that's why. I brought up the government earlier like people need to get out of this system first of all to decide to be happy. You can't live in a system where you literally are a slave to war machine and just expected never be depressed. And i'm just going to take a pill that will make me like zombie and my fate as a slave to a war machine just started dying bitcoin. That's right out taking a pill to make yourself feel like you just described. I mean that's right out of you know historic fiction like a nineteen eighty-four really had that they had the jin right. We just we just finished listening to To nineteen eighty-four and then Aldous huxley brave new world of new world. It was so. Ma was the pill that the people were on to keep them happy. There's one in the giver to you which we have to watch a anyway going on. We have these massive changes he says due to covid notes due to the crackdowns and it's due to the research comes after a difficult year. On the dartmouth. Campus four dartmouth students died. This school year devastating the campus. They don't say how they died. Was it suicide. Because it certainly doesn't seem like that it was coping like if it was covert they would say due to cova they. They died because of no. They're not saying that devastating the campus of more than forty four hundred undergraduates and sparking outrage. Among those who say the schools inadequate mental health resources are partially to blame it here. More like it was suicide. Yep they actually get into it here first year. Student bo debray there for his first year died by suicide in november another freshman connor. Tiffany died unexpectedly in march school. Officials said elizabeth rhymer also a freshman died at her home in huntsville new york and finally junior lamaze kerim kareem died in april following complications with a medical condition unrelated to corona virus. According to the college president to college did not say how the other students died. Last month several graffitied messages monastir admonishing the ministrations handling of what students have called a mental health. Crisis were found in three different locations on the campus including the president's driveway. I would agree that they don't need to be doing things to make the the customers aka. The students at their schools lives more miserable and they don't need to be doing things to cause them to have badmouth mental health but also you shouldn't be outsourcing your mental health hygiene to your college that so silly to expect that They are going to help you. Happy when you're in need. I mean these are the people who are telling you to put masks on. These are the people who are telling you to be obedient to not be social the idea that they're going to all of a sudden be able to help you if you're feeling down and out if you're feeling depressed these are not the right people to turn to. I mean if they put you on a pill that's not going to make your life better my opinion your thoughts are welcome back to the old a call in line six zero three two eight sixty one sixty. Give that a shot here tonight. We did test. It just seemed like it was working six zero three two eight six one six zero. So that's in the news and then related these vaccinated people. Some of them are still quote nervous. Speaking of anxious people about going back to normal. You talk about that on the way. It's free talk. Live twos next.

"I want to ask you about how you think religion and religious leaders are playing out right now, the role they play in America. I mean, there's just nice idea that we keep Religion and politics separate, you know the separation of church and state, but We know that, for example institutions whether they could be evangelical or not, are not supposed to direct congregants how to vote. But I wonder the extent which that is happening now and and how we're seeing this. This investment of the two. What are your thoughts on that? Well, your raise a very good point. And I want to be clear at the outset a za personal faith myself. I do not believe that people of faith should be silent in the arena of public discourse. I think the arena public discourse would be impoverished. Without voices of faith, and I wanna be very clear about at the same time. I think it's also important that any voices in the arena public discourse. Observe the etiquette of democracy That is to say speaking in such a way that yes, they are are expressing their views, but they are not. Only expressing their views. They're listening to other views as well. This is part of the thie discourse of democracy that has really been a hallmark in our nation since the earliest years. Ah, In terms of various groups in individuals. Using their platform as religious leaders to make political endorsements That really was covered by the Johnson amendment, which was legislation in introduced by Lyndon Johnson 1950. For that forbids Tax exempt organizations from making political endorsements. Now this is one of the things that the religious religious rite was to undo, and I think it's a terrible, terrible mistake. For them to do that, First of all, because should they do that? Then, churches essentially become conduits for political money coming into churches for tax exempt reasons and then being discharged into the political arena in terms of political campaigns or political endorsements. But the other reason I think is even more important. Roger Williams, to whom we owe the whole notion of the separation of church and state wanted to separate the garden of the church. From the wilderness of the world by means of a wall of separations where the metaphor comes from. And I think to understand that we need to understand that in the 17th century, and when Williams was living in New England he did. He was not a member of the Sierra Club that is to say. It was not someone who had these romantic ideas about wilderness that we have, really since Henry David Thoreau in the 19th century. Roger Williams Wilderness was a place of darkness where evil lurked. And so when Roger Williams talks about Protecting the garden of the church from the wilderness of the world by means of a wall of separation. What he's talking about is protecting the integrity of the faith. From too close in association with politics from too close, an association with the state And I think he's absolutely right about that. And I say that is a person of faith. We need to be vigilant in guarding this wall of separation between church and state, So when people begin to use their churches or con creations, are there other tax exempt religious movements? To to engage in in raw partisan politics. Not only does that violate the Johnson amendment, it also, I think undermines the integrity of the faith. No if they want to do that. You know that one of the Complaints. The religious right offers every so often that that a pastor's First Amendment rights are being compromised by the Johnson man. Well, that's just utter nonsense. Pastor could make any Political endorsement. He wants to make any time he wants to make it. Oh, yes Do is renounced his his tax exemption on DH. He's He's free to speak as much as he wants, and I think that most people would agree. I think most Americans would agree that this trade off Religious groups receiving tax exempt status, which, by the way is a form of public subsidy. Let's understand this tax exemptions not merely exemption from taxes. It means another tax paper payers have to make up the dis difference. Tax exemption is a form of public subsidy, and so that in exchange for that public subsidy These tax. These religious organizations agree not to be overtly political. I think it's pretty good deal, and for decades, most religious leaders have understood it was a pretty good deal. Now in these misguided efforts to repeal the Johnson amendment that that argument is being lost. We've been speaking with Professor Randall Balmer. Of Dartmouth University. Thank you so much for the time and all the information today we really appreciate.

"At traffic after marketplace and then at 4 30 on the California Report magazine. This week show includes a musical ode to Big Basin and the voices of listeners from across California who loved the majestic trees. There. That's the California report Half our magazine with host Sasha Coca coming up at 4 30 here on public radio. This is marketplace. I'm Kai result We have been reporting lo these many months Now The virus has changed and is changing. What and how we buy? Today. Soup. Campbell's soup governing reported a 17% jump in sales after the pandemic started this week. A 12% jump for the most recent quarter really nice numbers honestly for a company that had been honestly struggling for years. But as they say past performance is no guarantee of future results. Marketplaces Justin Ho is on that one. Campbell's has a slew of familiar brands and its portfolio kettle potato chips, goldfish crackers, the tomato juice and the company says one of the biggest sellers over the past year that quintessential comfort food, plain old soup. John Stanton is a professor of food marketing at ST Joseph's University. He's got some Campbell's tomato soup in his pantry right now, I just can't make from scratch. Good tomato soup stop. It's like the only one I buy. Stanton used to consult with Campbells and says Soup is a high margin product for the company, so the pandemic has spurred a nice revenue bump. I think that they should enjoy it because I don't think it's gonna last forever. Campbell says it expects soup sales declined, given how explosive this year's growth has been. Phil Lempert, supermarket guru is a food industry analyst. He says. Can foods like Campbell's flew off the shelves Because people were hoarding grocery stables and buying whatever was still available? It was the only thing on the shelf. So people bought if, and people's covers even to this point are still stocked. But even if soup sales decline, all that hoarding could boost the Campbell brand overall. Prasad Vonna Dartmouth University, says all those soup cans and snacks people crammed into their cupboards. They're really big banner ads right inside People's homes. Soup has believed the brand this year, but Campbell says it'll invest more in products We like to eat in good times and bad. It includes cooties, potato chips and packaged cross.

But with The events of this summer. I recognize that that's not okay and I and better and that I can do better, and that is kind of where this journey has taken me. I would really love to get involved in social justice. Human rights. Civil rights initiatives out in D. C.

So we're going to get right into our program now reminding you again that the local phone number is 734822 1600. I want to welcome our guest for today. Number one. We're talking about a health system. And that is Bryan Hayes and Brian is a public relations director for the Anne Arbor, Va. And Brian. Welcome to Veterans Radio. Hey, Dale. Thanks. Glad to be back clan Have you back? How are things going up there? Well, things are going really well for us. I mean, we're you know, we're still under quite a bit of restrictions as Faras. Visitors go and how patient things like that. But We are sort of opening things up a little bit. We're calling it the new normal. You know where folks are now able to bring in, you know, 11 visitor with them. You know a caretaker or something because they have an appointment. Doing a lot more face to face appointments. Now our surgery is almost up, Tio full speed. You know, It's not quite full speed yet, but it's up there. We're doing a lot of work and Doing the work that the veterans need us to do. We're also hiring a lot right now to case you haven't heard. We've a lot of a lot of community health care systems are kind of hurting through the coded crisis. Some of you are even talking bankruptcy. But a is hiring we need. We need health technicians We need especially nurses, particularly I c u nurse is right now we're in desperate need of I C u nurses and and even administrative folks. We need the administrative folks to back up all the clinical folks, And so that's that's kind of what's going on now and future. We've got quite a few things going on. Oh, you know, we're renaming the facility. As you remember. We talked last month were in the process of going through both chambers of Congress Right now, the renaming of the medical center to the Lieutenant Colonel Charles Kettles, Va Medical Center. We're going to remain a and R for health care system, but the hospital is getting in the game. I meant only that we also got our new intensive care unit will be coming online in just a couple of months. We're looking at mid September. For that. It's a brand new state of the art high tech intensive care unit. That's coming on or it was also getting ready to hopefully to a groundbreaking for our cannon, community based outpatient clinic coming up. We're scheduling that maybe for September. It could be early October, depending on Congressional schedules and things like that, and then some of the things that we have going on right now it's it's pretty busy for us at the time Clad to hear that you are are busy. There's lots of great information out there about the system number one is. I just got a news release the other day that thief, a surgical care is a better, too, or equivalent to non VA hospitals. I can attest to that. That's a research study that came out. I believe it was out of Dartmouth University about a year and 1/2 ago. Um, that showed that ah, the quality of care. Is that good or better and community hospitals by almost every metric every measure that have used one of our issues, you know that we have a B a nurse's way. We've got such stiff competition for nurses. Particularly in Ann Arbor. You know, with the education system that air here and also the whole, our health care system in the area of you know, it's just It's just really. It's very competitive for nurses and to keep him quote. So we like a little bit in that when it comes to the metrics of quality, But Faras patients getting their care were right up there with the best of them. And there was also a study that came out not too long ago from the Journal of the American Medical Association that show that waiter For the are actually better than community care. You know, for example, just I'm just gonna pull this around the top of my head. If you wanted a dermatology appointment at Via might take you a little longer than 30 days. Which is our our hearts the bar that we try to hit. I might take you 40 45 days to get a dermatology appointment, But you won't get that appointment anywhere else for six months. So So when we talk about comparing, you know, when we talk about wait times you have to say compared to what? Right Absolutely one of those is compared to black because I I have an appointment with a quote. I can't say this out loud. I guess a civilian dermatologist next October. I think it is so on. I feel fortunate to get that, but I know that there are other things going on. And maybe we could wait. Bring on our other two cats to talk a little bit about the funding that's happening in the budget. And so forth. But there was one other program. But then I saw that there were expanding funding for the emergency response for veterans experience.

Accurate on stuff that they don't know potentially could be fake. I think it's a good start. Yeah, because right now. Despite all of the worry when deep fake sort of first appeared on the scene, there generally used for adult videos the they're not being used to fool people yet. That doesn't mean that won't be at some point that we won't have a fake that people won't be able to identify. The causes trouble and so you want people working on how to identify them now before they become a problem, this is this is an example of of technology industry getting ahead of a problem for once rather than waiting for it to become a big problem, so so that's good I I'd like to see more of these kinds of programs beyond just this one from facebook.

If you're cutting down the number of those that you have to deal with that, that's a good start, and then hopefully we'll only get better. Yeah like I said I think it's you know this is definitely a good start. It's only going to get better as deep fakes also get better and I'm just glad that they're going in this direction because I can just imagine a time. We're not far from it. You know three or four years from now you're GONNA be able to make a take on your phone that you simply unless you just know that the person that is in the video was sitting right next to you while the video videos being made.

"So let's talk about operation varsity blues that is this this this cheating scandal case that has drawn a ton of attention. And I think for all the right reasons because this is a horrible thing to have happen in our society. When you've got a lot of deserving kids deserving based on merit being denied admission to some of the top universities because. Rich people coming in and trying to buy access for their kids. So you know, that the guy who ran this operation, the main guy with this operation was a character by the name of singer singer. But what's really interesting is the person who was tasked with taking the tests or grading the tests or proctoring the tests for the kids so that they could get their ACT and SAT numbers up. He's a guy by the name of Mark Redel? All right. So singer is the guy who ran the operation Mark, rebel or right? L is the college entrance exam counselor. Who is the main focus of the cheating on the tests component or the tweaking of the tests. So, you know, the consultant is William Rick singer. He pled guilty Tuesday in federal court in Boston to helping students cheat on their standardized tests, but the brains behind the operation was this guy rebel thirty six years old. He was supposed to be in court today in Boston. And he was the one actually filling in the bubbles. For the progeny of the actresses, and the lawyers the businesses the children of privilege rebel is a kind of an interesting guy because he's smart, and he had a lot of opportunity, and he kind of comes from a decent background. And why this guy would decide he wants to start cheating mean other than the obvious getting paid is beyond me, but rebel right L, rebel. We'll just say rebel has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering. He's been cooperating with the investigation since February. He's actually hoping to get some leniency when all this is put debt in a statement emailed Buyoya to the Washington Post rebel apologize says he's taken full responsibility for his actions. I wanna communicate to everyone. I'm profoundly sorry for the damage. I have done and the grief I have caused those. As a result of my needless actions. I understand how my actions contributed to a loss of trust in the college admission. Nhs process. Meanwhile, as you might imagine he has been suspended indefinitely. From his job as director of college entrance exam preparation. IMG g academy a private sports academy preparatory school in Bradenton Florida that he would be suspended from that job. While this stuff is going on. He's also an alumnus of the academy this academy that he was a part of had trained hundreds of Olympic and professional athletes tuition, by the way. Seventy seven thousand dollars a year. If you live there and go to school sixty one thousand dollars a year if you just go to the school as a day student. From there. Redel the guy who has taken the test went on to Harvard University where he dazzled as an NC two A division, one tennis player and by all accounts. He really was a tennis player. He really did play tennis for Harvard. It wasn't the scam in the flimflam. He was raised in Sarasota, Florida. He was named the tennis player of the year in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine by the Herald Tribune, his hometown newspapers father is a prominent real estate lawyer in the area with degrees from Michigan state and Wayne State university of in Detroit. A woman who answered the phone at the number listed for his parents threatened to call the cops and hung up when we asked her questions. This is the Washington Post. He began his job as IMG's exam. Prep director in oh six and lives in palmetto Florida, just outside Sarasota records show. He married a college classmate and helps direct the local Harvard club of Sarasota, he has been given or he has given modest sums to local candidates. But otherwise, he's. Remains remote from high profile debates and scandals by all accounts, lives, a quality a quiet life seemingly at odds with the brazen. Acts of fraud of which he now stands accused. What should be noted? According to the Washington Post is this man rebel had no inside access at the exam companies that the parents implicated in the scheme so badly wanted to beat what he had was a Harvard degree and a good set of test taking skills. Andrew Lang the US attorney for the district of Massachusetts offered this assessment of rebels utility quote. He was just a really smart guy. He did not have inside information about the correct answers. He was just smart enough to get a near perfect score on demand or even to calibrate to score. So it didn't draw too much attention. I just need fifteen points. Get me fifteen extra points. Get me twenty extra points. That's what he was able to do. According to the indictment singer flu rebel to Houston. In different locations in California where the self-described quote master coach had bribed test administrators for their cooperation and paid the Harvard. Grad ten thousand dollars for each student whose testy either corrected or completed entirely by himself. Let me just say parenthetically. It's ten thousand dollars is nice. Nice money. How many people got busted in this in this game? Do you remember? Was like fifty. So let's say he made ten thousand. Let's say he did fifty tests any ten thousand test five hundred thousand dollars. But is that are you gonna race your entire life over a half a million bucks? When you clearly he's got skills. Sometimes the students believe they were taking the tests for themselves other times rebel actively helped him on the exam in the fall of two thousand fifteen a thirties said he sat side by side with a student as she completed her SAT in Belmont, California, providing her with answers and later gloated about getting away with cheating that was the young girl. I told you about that was in the newspaper. Authorities said in the summer of twenty eighteen he completed the ACT in Houston hotel room for the son of Jane Buckingham. The chief executive of a boutique marketing firm in Houston. I believe her book. If you look it up Jane Buckingham is her book is entitled how to get out of sticky situations. Singer boasted that rebel was his best test taker according to the indictment he could quote nail a score. He's that good. That's that's who this. This guy is the US attorney leveling echoed the assessment when he addressed reporters on Tuesday explaining how singer would discuss with parents their child's target score which had to be good. But had to allude suspicion. See can't cope from like zero to a fourteen hundred you've got to kind of work your way up. He then would direct rebel attempt to hit that exact score that they were looking for his page on the IMG academy website was removed on Tuesday a cash. Eight version includes the boarding schools account of his duties and credentials. He was a coordinator and leader of the college entrance exam prep. So he's obviously steeped in entrance exams and the college exams, so he's probably taking these tests on the side for fun. Okay. That's a b squared. Okay. That's three. Okay. That's see. Okay. That's. There's only going to be like a universe of questions. I mean, probably some of them are very familiar, and if he's taking all these tests, he's probably just getting better and better taking the same darn task course over and over again. Imagine. If like, he's just will be interesting if he just had a massive change of heart starts to out these kids bloom. What do you mean only got three hundred? I'm never gonna get it. Now. I'm going to venture now rebels page. So it says that he was basically in the test. Yeah. I think I'm gonna taverna tank out all your tests. So is the coordinator and leader of the college entrance exam. Prep was responsible for the schools, test prep curriculum and recruited tutors to fill the growing need for additional one on one tutoring.
