Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases
"Nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covered 19 pandemic. That means in most cases, families can't sue. If someone they love got sick or died at one, the nursing home say they're doing the best best they they can, can, and and they they need need those those legal legal shields. shields. But But that that also also may may stop stop people people whose whose injuries injuries have have nothing nothing to to do do with with covert covert from from seeking seeking justice justice in in the the courts. courts. No. No. Well Well talked talked with NPR's Anna Jaffe, who's been looking into this Why were these laws passed in the first place? You remember that the Corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home, and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from Copan 19. Nursing homes for caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious the disease was, and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covert or did these immunity laws basically finished him off? Well, there is one in Durham, North Carolina. It's question whether it's related to cope. But possibly it's the first of its kind in involves the death of a woman named Palestine House. Her daughter, Lisa House set her mother's death had nothing to do with the coronavirus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bed sores. They're commonly known. She had it since December of 2018, and it just got worse and worse. It became infected. Lisa how was said she begged Trey Burke Rehabilitation Center to send her mother to the emergency room. But they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa House and her three sisters had their doubts. And their experience Traber and Rehabilitation Center didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. The federal government gives Traber in just one. It also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residents. The government has find Traber and almost $190,000 in the past three years. We were there a lot, and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her trade just sitting there. The House sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes in general. Traber and was the third one they tried, but it was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often, but that hardly mattered when families were locked out of nursing homes in March. Everything that harder and took longer Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and I V antibiotics. Lisa House had her mother's power of attorney Again. She begged trade burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find a specialist she needed again. She was turned down. Their excuses were Well, the hospital's not taking new patients because of cove it and she would be safer. She stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother. And none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine House died a tray burn Rehabilitation center on April 14th 2020. One month later, North Carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities, meaning the nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to March, 10th Lisa House and her sisters decided to sue Trey Burn anyway. Elizabeth the Todd is their attorney. Palestine House did not have to die in that way or at that time. And for the Legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic. Not the nursing home patients is outrageous and It's unjust North Carolina's immunity law less until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free pass to nursing homes with low staffing like Trey burn, and so literally, the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield. To prevent any liability at all. During the cove it pandemic through their attorneys. Trey Burn Rehabilitation Center declined comment, but for many in the long term care industry His immunity measures are welcome relief, says Day vocal CEO of the Arizona Health Care Association. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assistant looking facilities, legal immunity. And for that we applaud him because that just takes a little bit of pressure off vocal says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important. We need to worry about keeping Cove it out of the building. But sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says vocal Take, for instance, 100 Dead building and they really have 50 rooms, two beds per room. But to keep infection from spreading, those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis of existential proportions, says Mark Reagan, the attorney for the California Association of Health Facilities. That's because liability insurers are excluding all things Cove it when they renew policies, which would mean that any claims made Regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage. Congressional Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped it. It's part of the deal for the latest coronavirus relief package. Reagan still has hopes. What we're merely asking for is that caregivers and their employers don't get punished for doing the best that they could under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of Palestine House doesn't in fact, think the nursing home was doing the best I could for their mother. Well, right there. Attorney Elizabeth Todd points out that One of North Carolina's immunity criteria is that a facility must be acting in good faith, and she doesn't see how trade burn can argue that they did that. So where does this case stands now? Well, Elizabeth Todd is now waiting to see if the case will be dismissed because of the immunity law. Or if Lisa House and her sisters will get their day in court. MPR's Aina Jaffe aina, Thanks So much for your reporting. Thank you.

Episode 77: Police Reform, Public Safety, and Gun Violence Prevention
"And so I'm wondering if we can just start I kind of calling out the elephant in the room which is talking about, you know, the background like what why now are we seeing all these conversations about race and policing Beyond, you know, maybe just suck the recent shootings that have drawn attention to police reform. I guess I'll start then again, good morning everyone in admissions earlier, but greetings behalf of our national presence l&j Davis where she's actually the police chief of Durham North Carolina city of New York and she puts sadly enough police culture wins out a lot more time you compare to policy and I think when you look at what's our critic just and the recent birth But historically for decades and then some cases leaving probably go back to hundreds of years. Fortunately. This is nothing new in our community. So will they be communities of color African American communities wage? I think when you look at what occurred Mister Floyd, it really caught the country where it was pretty much all able to view here. I think get some bad public confirmation that even eight minutes and forty six seconds is not enough to address the Injustice of our country. And so the complexities go well beyond lot, of course about this law enforcement for most persons of my opinion represent the government meaning most citizens would probably never be the mayor of their city or their city council or both. We would encourage him what a meat sauce and do those meetings, but it main ways that that rank-and-file officers that beat cop is the government and so when I look at this definitely will ennoble standpoint we're outraged birth What occurred with mister Floyd be very Frank were outraged even going back before you until we outraged by really just decades and Decades of things that have occurred in this space. So, how do we respect and honor everyone's Humanity? How do we ensure the Irwin Fields as though they can and will achieve the American Gene regardless of edgy maybe and so from an overdose standpoint and we sit in front of Congress both the u.s. Sending US House of Representatives is that these issues go well beyond law enforcement. We in law enforcement have to own it off. And so I look back to Ferguson Missouri many of us tried and and continue to try to get the kinds of reforms and things we felt we needed after Michael Brown Stephanie Sussman deaths of many other three one more than Aragorn and so on and we were not successful. I think what you're seeing now is a cross-section of not just African-Americans, but all Races and then from genders and dead. And demographics across the board say this time we're going to put a stake in the ground and do our best to adjust. We saw over those eight minutes and 26 seconds. And then the broader thing is to age is of class and education housing jobs, et cetera is a whole lot more complex than just what occur but we had Noble or asking for comprehensive reform now just in law enforcement but looking at kind of a hobby. Oh, shared resources across our entire National landscape know, I mean, I think that that context that larger placement is huge and Clayton a under sort of what your perspective is as someone who literally as we've described it on this podcast is is also boots on the ground but maybe from a different direction. Yes, you know, this is not what they say the straw that broke the camel's back. That's pretty much what we're experiencing right now. I mean a lot of the Injustice and the stuff has been going on for decades. And we knew about it, you know, but some of the people that are never in power always turned a blind eye because as you say the video wasn't prevalent a lot of things just wasn't out there. But now I think Society changes you're starting to see, you know, the the people wake up almost, you know, as they say they're not starting to be woke but when you have a sister that's been put together for you know, decades generation and misses the status quo other system. It's so hard to change overnight. It's so hard to make adjustments where you know, it's kind of a finger it's going to take a lot of sacrifices going to take a lot of love. It's going to take a lot of you know, just Community effort in order to put for certain things to make sure that you know, we change the system from within and from without people try it like no one wants to keep getting pulled over by law enforcement. No one wants to keep going, you know the same old same old when all them Going to do is live. All I want to do is live and a lot of folks and how communities they are in survival mode because they've been surviving for so long that that's all they know. So when you got individuals in a survival mode and they're trying to move around or they're trying to you know, make sure certain things for they family is good, you know, if individuals around me willing to do anything anything wage and everything to anybody to because that's that's Survival Mode. They not living anymore because they they feel like it's not worth. It don't matter know regardless will happen. Everything will still be the same that's how they feel and and you know, that's what you know, we have to do and change that mindset on your holiday. You perceive certain things because if they always feel defeated and their survival mode, it's going to stop progress from family, you know, and then the places where it needs to be because they're not thinking about their future. They not thinking about nobody else feature. They thinking only in the present and that day to survive just for the next ledge

and please filling in some of my favorite thank you from a woman's point of view I agree with just about everything you said tonight but it selling the screener that I'm old enough to remember when it seemed like women was struggling to be recognized for their brains and not to their bodies I grew up where nobody really lectured but education was really really important like your job no to go to school and do this you know learn everything you could and now it's kind of more then to the louder you are only the better you can get away yeah this is mind boggling it is isn't it it's it's you know it's the old commercial so your you're raising your voice when you should be reinforcing your argument you know I you know I had I was very lucky I learned from the best my grandfather didn't go far in school at all he died a very wealthy man but that's because he bought up all the real estate in every direction around the university my grandmother was one of the few women that went to school or went to college in the twenties and so you know she passed that on and I appreciated it but I don't ever ever in this is this is the truth I don't ever remember during my grandfather or my grandmother raising their voice to a yelling level but they got their points across when my grandfather's case you didn't say much he was a man of few words but if you could look with a look at him made eye contact he spoke volumes but I never ever remember either one of them yelling and both of them were very profound and consequential people yeah I think it's generational issue I'm not sure because I grew up with the if you want to talk to someone in the other room you go to the other rooms back to the court we had a big yard and then we had acres I grew up with the curfew it was one of the guys I'd I would make the so now when I got through with everything I knew I was responsible for I'm going down the Graham all I'm going up to the cemetery them talking low I'm going over to I will run I'm going to do in Iraq no you're you're absolutely right in the sense that you know people don't make themselves understood any longer they think they're to be understood you know they're gonna have a high decibel level they got to be screaming and nothing could be further from the truth you're absolutely correct I don't know that two thousand nineteen helped any women at all you know I mean this sincerely I don't think two thousand nineteen and what we saw displayed in the streets of America held in the women if anything I think it probably hurt them more than it helped them something to think about now your national forecast things remain mainly dry in the west with the exception of Seattle rain showers through the next several days.
Humans Can Regrow Cartilage in Joints Just Like Salamanders
"If you have arthritis thank you you worry about your cartilage wearing out right but you've probably heard that you can't re grow your cartilage when it wears out its gun and that can lead to different types of arthritis or worsening arthritis and well listen to this a team of researchers wanted to investigate this idea about well can you re grow the stuff they use molecular clocks to figure out the age of the cartilage in our bodies from our hips to our needs to our ankles and they found that the cartilage in your ankle was younger younger than the cartilage in your hips and their results were published this week in the journal science advances so what does this turnover rate tell us about cartilage repair my next guest is an author on that study Dr Virginia buyers Krause is a professor of medicine orthopedics and path ology at Duke University in Durham North Carolina Carolina welcome to science Friday hi IRA pleasing carnal G. living tissue right well why is it so difficult for for us to re grow it it absolutely is living it's full of cells but what's unusual about cartilage is it doesn't have any blood supply and it doesn't have any nerve tissue so that's why it can be degenerating for long periods of time without there being that many signals in terms of something's going wrong how does it survive will with without any blood supply one does why wouldn't just writing your body like a foreign object well this is why exercise is so important for the joint nutrition because it gets its nutrients from the fluid inside the joint and which moves in and out of the cartilage brings the nutrients in and out to the cells with each dynamic motion so you are you saying that even if we have arthritis and when we're aching we we should still continue to do exercise yes as much as possible and when people are really severely affected we send them to the pool where they only way one eighth in the poll what they way on land which is even better than on on the moon and that way they can move their joints through ranges of motion without that deleterious load that's very interesting let's let's talk about cartilage aging how does it age over time so over time all your tissues accumulate chemical modifications and in cartilage that is particularly true because a lot of these cartilages are very long long lasting and what we found our surprise as you mentioned was that the proteins in the ankle appeared to be much younger in older people than their knee cartilage or their hip cartilage which told us that the ankle is in a high state of continuous repair like a house that's being refurbished continuously and the knees or somewhere intermediate but the hips have very low repair capacity so what are the ankles and making new cartilage or they just keeping the old stuff healthier so they're doing both they're getting rid of the old and they're replacing it with new so they're constantly turning it over and keeping it fresh so we know how that happens and could we then do that for the rest of the in our bodies well we racked our brains about this and we finally hit upon a beautiful paper in two thousand sixteen some work that looked at three different animals that could regenerate their limbs even though the animals were widely separated in evolutionary time by millions of years they posited that those factors that were controlling limb regeneration that were shared across the three of them might be the master regulators of limb regeneration and so they found a list of a hundred and eight micro aren't any that they think are the master regulators of that process so we looked into those factors and we found that those several of the ones that we tested which were some of their highest and most abundant ones were highest in the ankle were intermediate in the knee and were low in the hip and correlated very well with the protein age and the amount of those chemical modifications that had accumulated so could you move around that micro already a different place exactly that's what's so exciting is that we now have a list of a hundred and eight regenerative microRNA that could be injected into the joint to boost the natural repair response because we're already making those for

Hi, this is pappy hauling from Durham North Carolina, a month, or so ago, telling you I was profit on the idea of moving to Vermont to be with my son his life, and my almost two year old granddaughter. Well, fast forward, I backed out due to. To the weather, and I'm used to the sunny south and what I do my job there. I would make him fifteen bucks worth. So anyhow, I decided to back out, anyhow, I never closed on the house. I was getting ready to purchase and needless to say, I lost my deposit that actually my question is about two days ago, my real estate agent, that is working with their called knee, unless the voicemail asking if I would allow the next potential buyer or the people looking at the house that still for sale. My inspection report, if I would give it to them. Well, I have that feeling that something didn't sound right. And I'm just asking you and I know real estate law vary state to state. So your instrument applies where you're living in not Ramar or not. North Carolina, but that against the law or unethical for her to ask me that just out of curiosity namely. Thank you. Hey, Kathy so assay that you made the decision to stay in the south. I can't really say that I blame me as a licensed realtor. I can tell you what the laws were in the state that I practiced in. I cannot tell you what the laws are in Vermont or wherever, but you purchased a home inspection that is your home inspection. Maybe the only reason they wanted is because it was done recently. So chances are the condition of the home hasn't changed much since you did the home inspection. The thing with a home inspection, is that once per -ties have been made aware of any defect. It has to be disclosed, and that is the big thing. So I don't necessarily feel like. They're trying to hide that I think it's maybe just a matter of shoes. Trying to save her clients the money of having to pay for another inspection. But in in my state that I practiced in it was always about disclosure wants something was disclosed on inspection report. Then you had to, you know you had to acknowledge it just gave real estate wanna once you've said everything that I was gonna say, I hope that helps you have no obligation to share your inspection report. The inspection report belongs to you. I'm assuming that when you head your inspection that you would have gone back and requested that the items it showed up on the inspection.

And now when it's on empty, it will take five this gradually over time in when you fill it up like that. It's full, you know, it's full because the thing that's off in the needle needle goes to full.

Do cellphones cause cancer? Maybe in rats, but not in people
"And they were done at levels much higher than what humans are exposed to. But in science, we always need to overdo. Okay. We can't go. All right. Well, if you use your cell phone once a week just test that and see if you're good. Not what we're going to deal with. We're gonna look at cell phone radiation. And if you use cellphones, or if you are exposed to the radiation like galore, and then we work backwards. That's kind of an easier way to do it. It's safer way to do it. So. Female rats and mice both for female rats and mice of both sexes. The evidence was less clear as to whether cancers observed associated with signal exposure, but for male rats. They said it was undeniable why? Well, we don't know males may have different. I, you know, maybe I. Yeah. Maybe. The way the brain is shaped brain cells. You know, everybody likes to say there's no difference. You know, maybe there is a difference in the answer. Very very careful of how I word this. Maybe you know, there are I there's been. Anatomical suggestions of different sizes of organs in males versus females and that could potentially contribute to this. Okay. Who you gotta be really really careful what you say. These days. You can't say anything. Senior scientist, Dr John butcher of the national toxicology program in Durham, North Carolina said the exposures using the studies cannot be compared directly to the exposure that he was experienced when using a cellphone because what they did their studies, the rats and mice received radiofrequency radiation across their whole bodies. Yet. People are mostly exposed to local areas where they hold the phone. They also say the exposure levels and durations of our cities were greater than what people experience. So again what they're saying. There's nobody should panic because this was a lot of radiations in the whole entire body. So you could trigger a sell in another part of the body that then goes rogue and causes the cancer to occur. So this was a ten year study thirty million dollars in cost to assess the health effects of animals exposed to our f- our radio for radiation. What's modulators used a two g and three g cell phones. And the final reports were presented consensus of NTP and a panel. Exhibition national toxicology program and a pedal of external scientific experts who reviewed the studies. So that means we had a lot of big, you know, big lab people looking at this. Doctor butcher explained that. Or is it Booker? I think it's butcher. Said cell phones, utilize a specific type of radio waves or radio frequency radiation to transmit between the devices on the network. Exposure of people to this occurs,

"In community engagement from a transactional way or one time. Volunteer opportunities to having a more comprehensive approach to ask. What does it look like to be a good neighbor in Durham in every aspect of life one of the events they organize an I dearly love to do. This is. The Derm pilgrimage of pain and hope we got together and said, what would it look like to offer an opportunity for people in Durham to go on pilgrimage not to some far away place like mecca or the holy land or the Camino. But what does it look like to go on pilgrimage right here in our own city. What does it look like to see our own city as a sacred place, and we crafted this spiritual journey of exploring the story of Durham, and how it connects with our own stories in God's story. What are a couple of examples of people who've shaped the city of Durham, one of the most inspiring people for the pilgrimage participants is Virginia Williams, she was part of the nineteen fifty seven Royal ice cream sit in and she still lives in Durham, and what was that event? So the world ice cream parlor was ice cream. Parlor that was whites. Only parlor, they they. Did African Americans ice cream in the back door, but they couldn't sit down and they had to come to just stand at the back door to get ice cream. So miss Williams and six hundred people made up the Royal seven who are the people who agreed to walk through the doors when they swung open and go straight to the counter and sit down and say, I would like some ice cream, please. And another example, another is elder John black feather Jeffries, and he is one of the elders at the oaken achieve band of this opponent nation. That's one of the native American tribes that inhabited this area before it was colonized. And so he shares about his story and the story of his family and his people, and that's how we start the pilgrimage is to hear about that history. Dorm cares is a religious organization. Yes. So our one of our main values is that we are motivated and guided by the life and work. Oh, Jesus Christ inspired by the parallel of the good Samaritan, which is really a parable about the religious outside or getting the religious insiders to be motivated to do. Good for their neighbors. We're very welcoming of other faiths and people have no faith to participate in the work that we're doing no Christians as well. As all kinds of other communities are very divided. You have some Christians who are deeply conservative others who are who are very liberal. Do you? Deal in any way with with those differences. Yes. Yeah. And that's a lot of fun. It's not so fun sometimes too. But we bring together churches, not based on commonality necessarily of political persuasion or commonality of denominational persuasion, but we gather them based on place. So we have a place based cohort of churches in the eastern area where we bring together churches that share the same area to help them. Learn about what each other doing in the community, and those are very different organization. Right. And that's the thing when you when you gather people around place, then you can have that commonality of we hear the same sounds. We see the same people we experienced the same weather. You might have rain on one side of Durham, but not on the other side of Durham..

"Free job prep boot camps that teach basic workplace skills. And then part of what he tells employers is this we have folks who voluntarily went through week where we needed them to be on time complete their assignments true that folks with respect be teachable work on the new so all the things are going to need to be need to do to be successful. And they've already done them for a week for free. And this is what we've been doing with them sense. So rather than waste your time on Craigslist. Let me tell you what we have a candidate who's already been vetted who's already proven. They're ready for this opportunity in love for you to consider interviewing them. And so on employers side the goal then is it saving them time and saving them some of the HR legwork to find well qualified candidates. Is it difficult sometimes to persuade employers that people who have a criminal record in their background are in any way worth employing? Yeah. And so those are some challenging conversations that we need to have especially because our nonprofit was birthed by some really wonderful, folks. But when folks with a criminal background like essentially, oh, if I hear them, then I can tell them about Jesus I'm like in. If you hire them, you can get a rock star who's gonna make your business better. Like if you have ulterior motives about how you see this person or see them as a charity case for like you see yourself as in some way rescue in them. Then you need to hire this person because it's a good business choice. The background for this show is political polarization of divided country in what ways do you feel you're working to counter that? Yeah. Setup is in this really remarkable position. Because there are folks on the left who love us because they're going, oh, you're working with Justice involved, folks. So there's this kind of redemptive quality what you're doing and not to say that the right redemptive pieces to that's not what I mean. And then there are people on the right who are going. So you're just trying to fortify the economy. Like, you want less people on food stamps, you want less people receiving governments for like. Yes. We want them to be able to have the type of job where they feel really good about how they take care of themselves. Now, they take care of their family. And so we're every are politically like there should be more people working were all elevated when people who have talents get to use those talents. And so it's not a redder blue. We're all pro people working and having good economic opportunities. Also hear it recently, you'll end Chisolm works with young people to find them jobs. Her group is called NC works next. Gen I provide a lot of the career development training in GED workshops for a lot of our youth here. So without program, we provide education training and employment opportunities.

"Agency his name is Tucker Stevens, and he's the managing director in North Carolina for Amplio recruiting his company works with refugees. Most people when I tell them what we do. They assume we're nonprofit, and that's what's really unique is being able to operate in their social impact space as a B Corp. And find a way that we can help people very directly in a way that everyone needs. Everyone needs a good job. Right. And what's really interesting right now in the United States. Is that we have a really low unemployment rate, however, skilled labor, and especially, you know, manufacturing labor industries are at an all time high of having a difficult time for ending reliable work. So what we do is kind of bridging that gap. There's a lot of refugees. You don't have the opportunities necessarily because of a language barrier cultural barrier. So we work with the resettlement agencies, churches, mosques community groups to try and bridge that gap. There's a skills gap. Absolutely. And you have companies that want to hire people. And they don't think that there's anybody out there qualified who can do the job. Exactly. And so that's why we say that the refugee workforce is America's best kept secret. The fact that they're documented to work, and there's no question there. So that's part of what we do is introduce the fact that there's this entire market sitting there ready for the taking why do you think refugees tend to be such good workers? It really is incredible. How? Reliable. They are how dependable they are the statistics show that time and again people come from other countries where their experience with working hard providing for their families, all these things. And the other is that they've left such difficult circumstances. Right. And I think what's important to remember about refugees is it's it's not by choice. They've literally had to flee for their lives where they've been moved by government or religious, no for some. So they're so grateful to have left that behind. And so they're thankful for any work. Even if it's a lower work than what they were accustomed to but refugees, get a bad rent. Many people are suspicious of refugees the current administration has dramatically cut the number of refugees being admitted to this country. Yes, you know. I certainly I walk into businesses telling them that we'd love to bring them some refugee employees. And of course, you know, they want to know are they legal are they gonna steal things are going to commit a crime. And how do you answer them? Yes. They're documented to work. They have a social security card. They have state and federal ID's. They either have a green card or a work authorization card. The only difference between someone who's given refugee status between one of the two of us in a refugee is they have to wait five years to officially apply to become a citizen, and then they can vote otherwise they're here to stay or not on a visa, they don't need sponsorship. They don't have to go back to their home country. Any point their native of American at this point. And how do you address the argument that that many refugees could be damaged or traumatized by war? And that that might affect their performance on the job that's one area where the statistics do help the traditional labor force in America, actually turns over two-thirds more often than the refugee workforce. And so there was a young a young lady from Congo. Who said it best look at everything that we've been through look at everything that we've left behind. We didn't come here to bring our problems on our struggles, we left those and we're here to start fresh. So a little aside here, Jim maranda, our producer was editing. This and listening to Tucker's voice and thought it was kind of remarkable. And and there's there have been times when I wish I had a deeper voice that Tucker is certainly one example, it's how do we fix it? I'm Richard Davies, and I'm Jim megs and coming up more on the work of recently in Durham. Tim will lean also makes it pragmatic argument on behalf of people who have a criminal background.

I in Iowa, and then Minnesota and now for today's show North Carolina, and we pulled back from the political precipice in these shows, and you talked a lot of people in all these places are showing how real change can come not nationally, but started at the grassroots starting locally. We've seen what fear and hate canoe. So perhaps it's time to try a little love and our last two podcast. We looked at projects to boost village and have constructive conversations across that ideological divide today. We're going from talking to working as a way of bridging divides, Richard. You looked at an example of what happens when you bring different social action and community building groups together under one roof. Yeah. A sort of we works for nonprofits and companies that have a mission. It's not just a place where people make money we're here at recently and Durham, North Carolina. Could I I just get your name, rob shields and your position? Yes. So work as the executive director here at recenty. So tell me why you believe in the mission of resetting, you know, that's actually a pretty rare question. I don't often get that one. But I would love the opportunity to answer it. I believe in recently because I believe there is hope for our communities, and I think that when you turn on the news right now, you don't find a lot of hope you find a lot of discouragement you find a lot of division and people don't often walk away from the evening news encouraged in up lifted and hopeful, and so for me re city is an opportunity to show hope show that hope is possible show that unity is possible in a community. And I think. All right now. That's a message that we're not hearing through a lot of the channels that we absorb information through you're right about that. Tell me why you think that hope is possible. Well, I personally believe that we're meant for something greater than the current dynamic of how we see communities existing. I think that from a faith perspective. Now, everyone doesn't approach their worlds to the same lens. But for me, I look at the idea of redemption and restoration. I think these are really deep truce that permeate a lot of different perspectives. And for me, I believe the stories can be rewritten. I really do I believe that recipient an opportunity to show people that communities really can work for everyone when we stop dehumanizing each other and really start to get proximate. We lean into each other stories. I found this kind of interesting rob says he doesn't see the country is more divided than it used to be but more aware of its divisions. And that could be a catalyst for hope recently is a shared space. It's a large open plan one story building and it hosts over forty organizations each with the common goal of improving the health and well being of the community when you walk into recently we recognize, and we really value that if we're going to tackle really big system problems systems are made up of people tackling system. Change can feel very overwhelming at times. How do you change entire systems show like where do you even what bite do I take it that elephant, right? That just seems overwhelming and oppressive. But when you think about the fact that systems fundamentally are made up of collections of people, then you can start to humanize the problem a little bit and say, we'll have people function if you can bring people together, and we can start to empathize with each. Other on a really basic human level learning each other stories finding common ground building trust through that power of proximity. That's what we're trying to build here. And that's why we've invested in this space while why space is so important to our mission. What we are doing is putting a social impact spin on a co working seeing if anyone needs to be in the same space to share resources and build trust. And find ways they can work together and collaborate, it's the social impact space..

So so you can definitely check her out. Very cool. And let me get into an x. review, Lena Jackson. And her album is called darkness Bram and speaking of North Carolina, she's from rallying cry line. We'll get into that. So let me give you description of who she is and then we'll talk about her record. Lina Jackson is an underground hip hop artist and poet hailing from rally, North Carolina, primarily born and raised in poverty stricken areas. Lena grew up with music as her focal point of comfort with riding as therapy. Jackson started painting poetry as a child, but later became intrigued by cipher sessions. She was seeing school cafeterias in her early teens and for those who don't know, cypher sessions means people outside in in the group, like in a circle, just free styling and rhyming for fun just for fun. She was, yeah. She eventually learned to entertain poetry stances for rat bars and found pleasure in both spoken word and cypher wrapping her influences include now's MC, light Outkast, Missy Elliott, and bone thugs and harmony affectionately refer to as the wolf by musical peers. Guess peaches in live performances, expose her raw talent and spirited personality, so they call her the wolf. That's pretty cool on bold. Okay. However, Jackson's goal with her upcoming two thousand eighteen release what's here? The doctrines Bram you call it EP, although it's like more than eight songs, but okay, it's to it's to display her verbal skill set law expounding on darker topics, not typically discussed in mainstream hip hop issues such as poverty, domestic violence, mental illness, with powerful messages connected to intense delivery may Jackson's prepare to interject different deeper and deeper perspective into the ram game. So now with that being said. Let's get to it. The first song is, oh, so the picture the cover album. She has a hoodie on and she has her head bending, bending over bending, downward, and she's her face. Looks like she's having a silent scream and she's got a both of her hands on each side of her head. She's like wearing a black hoodie. But what's interesting is in her right hand, she's got his brass knuckles. Her fingers in a right hand. The nails look, nice, actually nice manicure, but it's a cool. It's interesting. It's cool cover. She's got like a goal chain around the neck and a bracelet. There might be having a key this hanging from it, but it's called darkness. Bremen darkness and brim are upside down and they're from right to left going across her chest. So it's very interesting cover, look forward to one of these asking about that. So that's how the cover looks that got my attention when I found this record on band camp. So I found this working on banking m the sesame recommend band camp actually. So. So the first track is called the mask intro. Starts off music the south, like a harpsichord or like a kalimba, a snare drums and knocks make up the percussion slight brush dick plan against the symbols, jump symbols, seep into the because Shen as well as as well. Trump comes in and plays in the distant background. The end of the song, the song about Leia's romantic relationship with her manager..

Just encourage you that the human race is not completely lost its mind despite what you see on television and internet and cable news and all that other stuff, people are out there doing great things every day, and we close the show with a quote in question all to spur you along eight, four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven back to the phones we go. Chris is on the line in Durham, North Carolina, Chris. On the Ken Coleman show. Hey, can thanks for taking my call to. I wanted to reach out to you. I had a question and something that I'm struggling with and hoping that that you could help me. So I've been in the the thing industry for about twenty years, which is, and I'm starting out pharma farm citadel. Okay. And I am just burn out. I don't feel engaged anymore. And you know, if years ago I I got my real estate license and you know, I wanted to go into that field and I'm having a hard time making the jump from salary to commission only emotionally. It makes sense. But you know, from the math perspective, it's hard to leave something guaranteed for something that's not. And I know probably not the only one that feels that way, but I thought I reach out to you and get your perspective. Yeah, you're not the only one that feels that way. So there's nothing wrong with you wouldn't beat yourself up about the feeling, but let me just share something else with you. Your. Salary at this pharmaceuticals company is in guaranteed either. So let's go ahead and let's just associate what we need to associate with. There's no guarantee there you have. I know your salary. But there's no guarantee you got the salary five months from now there isn't. So just understand that. Now, let's switch gears. I don't think you need to even be worried about this because my first thought Chris is that you get into real estate and that's a part time gig. Anyway, let's just be real if you were to jump today and leave that salary. I would say that was a goofy move because it's going to take time to build your pipeline in real estate. You, you know, you gotta get associated with somebody, do you know, or is that all set and planned out like you could pull the trigger today? You've got a broker who's gonna. I don't know what they call it, the sponsor you or you're gonna go work for them. So you've got a good line of business or is that not set up do? Yeah, I'll circle back around so I do and I did it part time about a year ago and did well and closed about ten to fifteen deals and about a six month period. Okay. Stop stops. Pause, pause, pause, pause. We'll get. I want to. I wanted to go right back where I cut you off. But you did it part time. Exactly. Like I said, and you did well, right. So why did you stop. I think it's just cold feet and you know, I'm sure you know multiple people can say this. I think when you start out and you've been doing something for so long, you know, it's just you start thinking and talking yourself out of it. And and I think that that's what I did, and you know, it's just hard. You try to find a reason, but I can't just get rid of it every time I turn around, it's like it's knocking at the door and wanting to go back into it. And there's there's son. It's just a weird feeling. So I I was telling, you know, emotionally, you know, it makes sense. But financially, you know, and I'm in a data driven organization and field. So I'm looking at data and I'm trying to look at spreadsheets and see where this makes sense and find every reason not to just kinda scared to take that that plunging it into full time. I know I can do it and I did it, but Chris, Chris to the point. But Chris, Chris, I don't want you to jump into it fulltime. I don't. The why you quit it last time. So there's no definable reason other than you just got inside your head and when we get inside of our head and it's fear than it makes no sense..
