Here this is also coming as covid numbers and cases. Rise in the district the dc public schools middle and high schools will continue virtual learning until at least february. And that's a pretty big deal but you know maybe not totally surprising if you take into consideration the cova numbers and also looking at other school districts across the region who have flirted with reopening and then had to pull back now.

"Distinctly, by this point, I was in my mid twenties just kind of flash forward here and I had you know finally reached that four hundred pound mark and I could not take more than ten steps or so without my chest beginning to tighten you know hear. So often people use the analogy of felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest and I was like that's a cute analogy until I actually experienced it and I was like holy crap. That is the most accurate thing ever. And so that was really scary because my father's father died before I was ever born and so every time I would feel that in my chest I was reminded of him and thinking like he died when he was in his fifties and I'm not even GonNa, make it anywhere close to that I'm not even gonNA, make it to thirty if I continue down this path and that's a pretty sobering thought but the more to it than that was. To kind of emotional components that that happened and one was by this time in my life, I was already working broadcasting I was working on the radio as one of those wacky morning show sidekicks and appropriately the station I was working at here in Washington. DC. Is. WBZ. Big One hundred point three and so I know, right you can't write this so. I thought that I had to be big chuck to be on the air like that was my personality. They promoted me as such. You know let's let's have the big guy go out and do something stupid. He'll do it. You want to dress them up in overalls and have them run outside and call it. You know the the Hick. Olympics. Let's go ahead and do that. You want to put them up in a in a diaper and and give them. You know dress them up like a the chair for Valentine's Day even though it's freezing cold and have him go round delivering chocolate to listeners. Let's go ahead and do that. It was really shameful at the time and it sucked in hurt but I thought that that's what I needed to do in order to achieve my dreams. So I sucked it up and I did that but all the while while that is happening. I'm also beginning to date a girl who very much was not overweight and I thought that I had hit the Jackpot when it came to love. The problem was this girl bagged and she pleaded with me on a daily basis not to tell anyone that she and I were dating. And it was like being kicked excuse my language it was like being kicked in the nuts. Day After day after day wondering why am I, not good enough for her she didn't want to tell her family. She didn't want to tell her friends. Want to tell any of our mutual. It was to be kept secret and she she was angry when I let her know that I had told my family that I work a couple you know and and so to feel like you're not good enough. But. This is good as it's going to get to have to settle for that. That's a that's a heavy burden to carry for a year and a half every single day, and so when you add all of that up and then having the shameful flight across country where you definitely can't come anywhere close to fitting into the seat and you feel like everybody on that plane is staring at you and you have to humiliatingly ask for seatbelt extender just so you guys can you know take off? That to me you throw all of that together man and it was just like that's it. I cannot do this anymore I absolutely can't do this anymore, and that's when I made that decision to have weight loss surgery didn't know anything about plant based nutrition at that time I just knew that I wanted to live to see thirty and I I took that radical step. Now a lot of people who have weight loss surgery they are not able to change their eating. After because, they haven't changed their mindset and the doctors who do the bariatric surgery often just don't really help and it takes a lot of it's hard to change your eating. So just because you've had the surgery, a lot of people gain it back, I want to just give people an idea of how you in your twenties so that they see how far you've come now. After a successful bariatric surgery and although I. Know You only you say that bariatric surgery was only ten percent of your success but tell us a little bit about how you wait first and then what you did after the surgery that kept it off even an and then, and then even this was even before you started your plant based Diet. Oh, yeah So I was I was single handedly keeping the TACO Bell and Falls Church Virginia and business right outside of Washington DC I had a twenty dollar a day Taco Bell Habit now mind you this was eleven years ago now. So I mean twenty dollars to then is probably thirty dollars worth of food today and I had A. Standing, order there. It never varied and they knew when they saw my car pull into the parking lot just start punching it up and getting it ready. So by the time I got to the order board there were just like hi Chuck, Your Your totals twenty bucks drive on through and so every day sometimes this is twenty bucks in one time one order..
Why Do Dogs Have Tails?
"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from Vermont public radio I'm Jane Lindholm On this podcast, you ask the questions and it's our job to find interesting people to answer them. In this episode, we're talking all about dogs. Now, if you WANNA learn about cats check out our companion episode that episode includes some amazing facts about how cats communicate with humans in a special language they make up with their own individual human family. But in this episode, we're going to stick to barks instead of meows. Lots of your dog questions had a common theme you to know about some of the ways that dogs are different from humans. Jessica Heckman is a veterinarian and a dog researcher and she has a blog called the dog Zombie because she's obsessed with dog brains studying them not eating them anyway I. Guess You could say she's a dog scientists and she's here to answer your questions. Our first one comes from Margot who is five and lives in Amherst Massachusetts. Why did Adopt Tales That's a great question Margot whenever someone asked a question about why does one type of animal look one way and is set up one way and why is another type of animal built a different way the way I like to think about it is talking about that difference why? Why what we use it for? So dogs ancestors, wolves, ancient wolves had to run to catch their dinner and tales helps them balanced when they ran so that was they had them back. Then and dogs some dogs still do have to run as part of their job, right? Like she herding dogs have to do a fair amount of running but dogs also use their tails to communicate. So that's another good reason they have tails. They don't use noises quite as much to communicate as humans do but they use body language a lot more than humans do. So with dogs a tale, it's really high means I'm confident a tale that's held low means I'm. Nervous a tale that's really clamped rate underneath there but means please don't smell my but right now and also I'm really scared and then a wagging tail something all really familiar with because it can mean that the dog is happy but also you can see it in angry dogs I would just caution you to be really careful when you see a wagging tail overall, we try to look at the whole dog, not just the tail to interpret body language but the tail. Is definitely a very important part of the dogs tools for speaking why might dog wag its tail when it's happy or when it's mad? Why would drag tail for both possibilities I think from the dogs perception that they might be seeing something different from a wagging tail than we do. They have this very complex set of tools that they use in body language and we as humans because we're not dogs. We just have trouble fully interpreting that and so I think that. A. Wagging. Tail. It might look a little bit different to them with the dog is happy than if the dog is angry and we as humans might just not be able to perceive those differences. And sometimes, I think a dog who is angry or alarmed or considering that they might possibly by you will wag its tail almost as an appeasement gesture to say like Hey I'm not a threat I'm not don't hurt me but they might still be thinking I'm kind of scared of you and I'm prepared to bite if you come any closer. So it's just It's just always important to look at the whole dog to look at his face and his eyes, and you know how he's holding the rest of his body and not just the tail hello money aller five, six years old I live in Falls Church Virginia and my question is why thumbs up partner Paul. Hi Alex well I think dogs have their thumbs up on their paws to keep them out of their way because they are basically walking on their hands rates they're using their four limbs for something differently than what we use them for horses by the way have taken this to extreme they walk just on the tips of their middle three fingers. Into hooves. So I almost feel like it might be a better question to say why are human thumbs so far forward rather than why our dog thumb so far back we're actually the ones that are unusual. Because humans and other primates like monkeys and apes we have this unusual hand that we use to hold things because we evolved to climb rate, and so we would use our hands to climb up a tree and then humans are thumbs are are even more different than in other primates because we have these very complex hands that are good for really delicate work like holding pencil and things like that. So we're actually the unusual one but yeah, they they walk around their paws obviously and they don't want their thumbs to get in the way.

"Five Steven Platt the lead pastor at McLean Bible asking for sympathy good morning I've got another faster in your father Paul Scalia is with the Catholic diocese of Arlington he is the patron Saint James Catholic Church in falls church Virginia and author of sermons in times of crisis twelve homilies to stir your soul and father when it comes to crisis boy we have one first of all good morning so glad to have you on this Good Friday good morning it's good to be with you thank you for okay of course very very appreciative of you this this you know one of the things I have noticed about all of this and I'm sure it hasn't escaped you as a priest is that in a time of land that we're just finishing up we happen to be hit with corona virus here in the United States at the same exact time am I over reading that all of this is happening at the same time or do you see something special and all of us well I think we we always look to see what what we can learn lessons we can draw from any any kind of suffering or crisis and with this overlapped with lance almost perfectly yes I think that that's not been lost on a lot of people that lunch is a time for sacrifice and we're gonna have to sacrifice a lot now the irony is that we also have to sacrifice coming together as a church and impressed Catholics receiving holy communion which is a tremendous sacrifice and something like that especially during monsoon is a great affirmation see you know father I almost by my husband are very afraid that we're going to get used to not going to church you know in the beginning it was weird because we were Saturday night people or less chance massive seven on Sunday night but so so we're we're more willing to fight the crowds in the morning so as we go through Saturday night rolls around we're like what we gonna do you know is it was it was I thought it was a disruption in in that that routine and we're really afraid that we're going to get comfortable not going how do you prevent that from happening you know that's that's such a great point in it well it's good for you to be a great right and there there should be it should be a level of discomfort there should be a level of longing and desire that is quite the soul because we we don't want to lose sight of the importance of this we don't want to grow comfortable with life without without the church without the mass of the Eucharist we we definitely want to continue desiring those things and one of the things that I've I've tried to convey my pressures is precisely to cultivate my mom being in the fire so that so that won't be lost and and so the sacred things that very special we are social services so that we no longer lost not because you are in the interim you are are you doing mass in a streaming format is that how you're doing yes we do so we need the church open all day so that people can come and pray and and and we have we have people there to you know moderate that the number of people who are in the church and then we have a small chapel with us from which we live stream all of our masses and we're just doing math at the regular time that we always do and so we've been live streaming all of our masses since since the governor you know Katie gave his orders several weeks ago and and then for today and tomorrow in eastern we'll be live streaming everything and was moved to some other initiatives to investors to keep people connected you know my work email guestbook and father on the issue of you know brain searches everywhere are dependent upon the collections from the faithful in terms of them making donations to help support the church how hard is that right now are you losing a lot of the financial resources you need by people not coming to church well of course yes I mean that's I mean the the the Sunday collection is is simply what keeps us going throughout the week that's a start in a standard administrative costs and so you know we're still doing things and we're still we still have five pounds after failing everything so that that lack of of giving on Sundays it is usually the people been extraordinarily what about moving moving trailer trying to campaign or just dropping her and low spots and select items very inspired by a lot it's really out of time but that doesn't that doesn't cover everything so there still is only a great need for people to be more deliberate in Oregon and and and yeah it's great it's a great inspiration when they are the other what's it like to live stream of mass so you're saying mass to a camera in there is no one there to responded as she is a very interactive event so what's it like to do that well you know it's such a great point because math is supposed I mean I'm a priest on occasion will say mass by himself but really it is the norm is that there's a congregation because he's often asked for them you know to the lord for them and give them communion so it is a little awkward you know what we've done is we we have a a good number of priests here in the house and so we serve mass from one another so that so that each priest have somebody at least in the chapel with him and but then you know it's it's still all and you know I'll say one thing that that was surprising to me is that a preaching two eight a monitor is a little awkward at first but and one of the dangers is since there's a lot of congregation there and you can't sense you know sort of when you have a you know hit the limit that they're willing to listen yeah you know the there's not the movement in the use of another clearing up grow and so the to keep reaching and keep going that's not only father fathers go yeah I wanted to ask you you know it we we mentioned we mention of course your last name you are the son of the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia are there any Easter traditions that this Korea family maintains that may be a little interrupted this year by all of us well you know just the getting together and I mean my my siblings you know I I think they get all the nieces and nephews together for for things I'm usually not included because I don't have I don't have children and are using hearing confessions on holy Saturday and busy all Easter Sunday but those family get togethers are are sort of you know somewhat on either agree needed and then and then my big family at the very much others are either created or put on hold entirely so it's you know I think when everybody else is experiencing those distractions and just being together for a nice meal on on on Easter Sunday okay father I need you I need some advice from you said to to end an argument between my husband and I if you wouldn't mind you don't have to yes so here's the thing my husband is a physician and he's working with with Kobe positive patients and I see you and they're they're slammed right now so they're working you know fourteen hour days and he's really busy and there's food everywhere everywhere and he says it's always a temptation because it's usually you know doughnuts and things like that so I told him maybe he noted that today's a day of fast and abstinence for Catholics you can only have one meal I told him he can eat throughout the day if he's working a fourteen hour day and he's on his feet all day and he's doing something it's okay can he eat more than one meal today that's what I want to know yeah I I I I think so given given what he is doing yeah well I I think that's going to be okay Anderson you know such as and and the church's world is one meal me less but then to like snacks or collation as we call them in order to keep your strength and so that the church makes provision for that if you need to get the strength back hi then he should have company especially given the circumstances and we don't want him to not had the notion he needs okay that is C. and you know he's gonna hurt her too strict but not unreasonable I'm back tonight and he's going to say you know he just said that because he was talking to you answer the question for me is that's why he's logging on you help them out if he if he wants to fast great if you want to be instructed as possible
