Couple Boards Flight After Testing Positive for Covid-19

"A couple from Hawaii. They test positive for covert. Okay, so the two they hop on a plane anyhow. In San Francisco, even though the airport supposedly told them Yeah, you shouldn't do this. So they land back in Hawaii and then and here's where it makes an interesting turn right. They get arrested on charges of second degree reckless endangerment. So that raises some interesting legal questions Come people who get sick and go out on purpose, really face criminal charges with us is criminal defense attorney here in Los Angeles. Lose. Shapiro, Lou, Thanks for being with us. Absolutely ready to go. All right, Well, okay, let's go then. So that raises an interesting things there. Here's this couple. Allegedly. They knew that they tested positive. It's not clear whether they had any symptoms or not. They may not have But in any event they knew they had the Corona virus in them. They go ahead on and fly anyway. Now they're being charged with second degree reckless endangerment, presumably of the passengers and crew on board that aircraft. Eyes that really weird or is there some foundation for doing this? Will it completely makes sense. If you look at the Hawaiian Code of second degree reckless is that they were charged with It actually compares it to taking a gun and shooting it into a crowd. And that's the analogy here with covert, they were told, Do not go on that plane. You need to quarantine and rather than doing that they voluntarily and intentionally got onto the plane, subjecting all the passengers and crew. Potentially to a Do something that could cause great bodily injury and or death, So it doesn't meet the elements and it's a very serious charge. And is that kind of the deciding factor? One of the big points of this is that they were instructed. Do not do this. And they did. Anyway. It's not like I was feeling ill and I went in somebody you know, got it for me and you know something bad happened to them. But I didn't know positively that I was positive. It's much different than let's say having some symptoms having the sniffles and not testing when, when you know you have you tested positive you are told, don't do that. That's very egregious conduct. And if they don't have a record, maybe they'll, you know, they'll get some mercy on this. Maybe there was a family emergency. We don't know why they felt the need to still get on that plane on the totally hear that What we have in front of us right now is not very good circumstances for this couple. Okay, So now let's let's say my cannot your prosecutors and turns out somebody on that plane died and because they got Cove ID. On now. Authorities in Hawaii. What do they do? They charge you know, manslaughter, Murder and your defense attorney. What's your defense counsel? It could be upgraded to manslaughter right? Because all that is is really negligent conduct. That resulted in the death of another. All right. I think on the defense side, one would argue that well, it's a reasonable doubt as to whether this couple Infected the victim in the case because Cove it is so contagious and their other people on the plane. There's no way beyond a reasonable doubt to prove that exact causation Unless maybe this, this victim is was sitting right next to him in the row in front and back and no one else in that area. I was positive, so that would be the defense on that one. There are other bugs people can have. I mean, you can get a bad case of the flu, and we know it's different from Cove it But, you know, maybe I flight and I have the flu and I shouldn't buy. Do it anyways. Uh, you know, can I get charged for that? No, that that's a bit different, because what the code is really looking at is something that can cause Great bodily injury and a cold on or even even the flu. Really, You know, people are vaccinated for the most part and again the flu Unless there's not like a test. Where, yes, you you have the flu worries with the coronavirus. There is a positive test documented. That's a lot more egregious. Well, let's take the people off the airplane last question here and suppose they go to work on their employer has made it clear if you're sick. If you think you've got covert if you test positive for cover, don't come to work. Same potential legal issues. Meaning yet meaning does it could the employees get prosecuted for coming to work, infecting others around them? God, you know. Yeah, yeah, It's not that different. Actually, it's no different. It's like taking that gun and shooting it in the crowd. You know it could be problematic.

Warner Bros to release all 2021 films on HBO Max and in cinemas on same day

"In Hollywood Warner Media has announced that a basically their movie slate Is going to be on its streaming service, HBO Max the same day that it opens to the degree that any movie can open right now or in the next months ahead in theaters. This is shattering the window that had been a foundation of the movie business in which movies playing theaters and then they move on to another platform and the studio's milk of the movie all the way through, you know, with DVD sales and going to a cable channel or whatever, and make a lot of money. That's what it has been But now we're in the streaming world and Warner's. I will say absolutely stunned everybody, including the people who made the movies that are going to now be in this what they call day and date arrangement. They didn't even give them a heads up. They just announced it. I'm too heard about this the night before, and I was telling everybody I could reach this see what they'd heard and people didn't know. They had kept this idea completely under wraps and shocked the town and Maura importantly, perhaps Warner's did not tell the feet Your owners that they were doing this and this is it. This is basically the beginning of the end of the theater business as we know it because Warner's is the largest studio in terms of output. And now we've got 17 films, The entire 2021 slate going direct to HBO. Max the same day there in theaters. These are Sequels to the Matrix Sequels to the conjuring. This is all of the Warners movies Big small and in between. And you know there's really no going back from this. I don't think because even though the CEO of Warner Media Jason Kyle are is already saying this is just because of the pandemic in 2022, we could reevaluate. I just don't see how you do that. This is their policy. 18 T bought Warner media to explicitly to start a streaming service and take on Netflix. They don't care about the theatrical business. And now here, it shows and I think you're really going to see a catastrophic End of the movie business as we know it. Yeah, I mean, I was texting with one of their competitors the night before this announcement, the spin was the theater business will be reborn, and it will become this much better experience and I'm like rolling my eyes and yes, they didn't go to the theaters. They didn't go to anybody because they knew that with the blowback would be they just dropped it And I will note something like Godzilla versus Kong. Legendary paid 75% of the budget for that movie and basically can't control its destiny Got an offer from Netflix wanted to sell. The necklace was blocked by Warners because Warner's paid the other 25% and had the deal that give it the power to block that sale. And then they wake up in the morning saying, Guess what? We're putting it on our streaming service. There's no deal in place. This is not how we do business in Hollywood. You don't just say I'm totally twisting your arm, but I may have pulled it off. I think there was going to be incredible blowback from film makers, producers all of their partners, this kind of behavior. It's a digital thing bloodless. Move, But I think in Hollywood, you're gonna find a certain amount of blowback. Yeah, they're gonna have to pay out all the talent because there are expectations of box office bonuses and back in that are cooked into deals when you do this, and we saw this with Wonder Woman when it went to streaming. You got to pay out the filmmaker and you got to pay out Gal Gadot, the star and Maurin importantly, though, there is a feeling that the theatrical experience is being threatened here and you mentioned yes that the theaters could possibly reinvent himself. Cells. But let's say this impacts theaters 25 30%. That is a significant hit that the theaters will take on. A lot of them will go out of business. As we know the hits or what Dr the theater business, and even a 30% decrease would cause many theaters to go out of business. Perhaps the ones that remain would reinvent themselves Great. But talent here I mean, think of someone like John to the director of in the heights. He specifically took this movie Toe Warner Brothers when Netflix was offering a lot more money because of the experience he had with crazy Rich Asians, which also spurned Netflix for Warners and got a theatrical release and became a huge cultural phenomenon. Because of that theatrical release, he went Toe Warner's thinking he'd get that again. Now he's getting day and date. That's not what he signed up for. Yes, I mean, just let me be clear. I'm not the one who said the theater business will be reborn. That's the dream of executive in this business. And as I said, Yes, he is a perfect example. John Hsu of what does he think of this? And what will he think? Next time? He has a project that he wants to take somewhere. Thank you, man. Thank you. That's meant

"In today's episode. We speak with carly dunkelberg. Karen frost of a light solutions about the impact of covid nineteen and the economic recession on healthcare consumers ability to save we consider a range of strategies. Employers can use from lifestyle cards to account seating to support employees during times of hardship and set them up for long term. Financial success right. This is carla dunkelberg. Her and i am the vice president of sales for a light smart choice account sales team. I'm curious frost. And i lead our solution stretch. Help business at a light. Karen for those in the audience listening. That aren't familiar with the light. Can you give us a just a quick background on the company so a light is the legacy humid associates administration. This is so we used to be part of the who and he would at that point and just back in two thousand seventeen found off to a stand alone company and a light is focused on really all things. Hr we do health wealth. Hr and payroll management services to employers is that you're about five hundred lives in over If i look at the health book of business he served about fourteen million people representing about one hundred and set. I'm sorry seven hundred forty clients. And when i say health i need a whole variety thinks that starts with benefits administration including including cobra saying you know Aca compliance but we also do the rest of the circle so we have helped navigation services consumer accounts and his as benefit navigation services. So we if if it's an hr thing a like pretty much does me all right so the topic. The main topic for today is around savings and we know if you think about savings and spend sort of two sides of the same coin we know that cova nineteen has had a major impact on spending this year so it will start with the spending side of it. I'm curious what you guys are. Seeing at a light in terms of spend changes or trends may be karen. We'll start with you and then carly you can add to that if you want. Oh absolutely so. Let's think about this in two ways. So i would probably everyone on this call. His about is what you hear in the press around the significant impact on the delivery system. And so you heard things There was almost a six hundred billion dollar decrease in q two this year in healthcare spending But what may not be as widely heard his how. That's rebounded really starting in the late spring early summer and so i was just reading a kaiser family foundation report before coming out of this call in although there was about almost a forty percent decrease then in q two over the summer we saw spending rebound to all only about ten percent lower than prior years so we did see a big drop in things like elective surgeries. Those things that could be really delayed without significant long term impact on patients. But what we're starting to be more and more worried about are the things that could have long term impact like preventive care screenings cancer We saw a significant drop in that. Drop his remain and as we all know is you. Don't if don't find those illnesses early treating them that that charter later as well as more costly. And then if we think about the impact on people We see you know over. Forty percent of people telling us that they wouldn't care because they were afraid nearly three fourths of employers telling us that they're worried about an overstressed healthcare system and not being able to find a doctor one And then the impact of that with over fifty percent of people telling us that there's a negative impact on their overall mental wellbeing as a result of everything. That's fine out in the end. So we see an impact on the actual spending as well as people's outlook on future healthcare services.

How Do You Distribute A Vaccine To Suspicious Citizens?

"Corona virus vaccine to millions of Americans who may be suspicious of authority or on the fringes of society. Especially when those people are among those most at risk of covert 19. Dr. Julie Morita has been thinking and writing about these problems for months as Chicago's former health commissioner, and now she'll have an opportunity to shape these policies on a national level as part of President elect Biden's covert response, team Doctor Marina Welcome to all things considered. Thanks for having me, Ari. Well, let's start with this question of how you build confidence in a vaccine when there is so much suspicion and disinformation circulating. What do you think needs to be done right now, even before vaccine is widely available to the public. I think it's really important for people to have ah, sense of what's happening and what's been done so far so very clear and concise and consistent messaging about the vaccine development process. Venture manufacturing process. The approval process is So that people have a sense that we're not doing this blindly that The vaccine development that's happened with the co of vaccine has been fast, but it's built on decades and decades of experience in making vaccines and distributing vaccines as well. When you're Chicago's chief medical officer, you were involved in distribution of the H one n one vaccine around the city. What did that experience teach you about how to address hesitation, especially And marginalized communities. And are there lessons there that you think the incoming by the administration can apply nationally? I think we learned a lot of lessons through the H one n one pandemic in 2009. We were working frantically to get vaccine providers lined up to actually make the vaccine available, and we also hosted vaccine clinics and communities that are typically underserved. The weather physician accesses a little bit more challenging. And what we found was that these mass immunization clinics that we hosted in some of our communities of color. The turnout for the vaccines was lower. And so at that point we started reaching out to community organizations, Faith based organizations to have them help us understand what was going on in the community. Why weren't they turning out for the vaccine? Why weren't they getting vaccinated? It would have helped US organizations that are already in touch with members of that community. Right. So we were we had organization that we were already partnering with. We reached out to them and ask them to engage with us again, and it worked to some extent, but without we didn't get the success that we were hoping for, and so building on that experience in non pandemic times, the Health Department and our partners worked established relationships on ongoing time. Between pandemic so that we would actually have these relationships and could really rely on the information from those community groups to inform our planning for future pandemics. The current health department is actually tapping into in relying on those relationships now to really help to get the information to the communities and understand what their questions and their concerns are. Interesting, But let me ask. There are real questions about vaccine safety. I mean yesterday, the CDC Immunization Advisory Committee recommended to give the first round of vaccines to health care workers and residents of long term care facilities. But there has not been a lot of research into the effectiveness of the vaccine and the safety of the vaccine in the nursing home population. How can experts be sure that it is safe for them? So the information is being evaluated, but it will be evaluated by FDA to look at the safety and efficacy to understand who the study populations included. Information that I've seen so far suggested the vaccines how are safe and effective in a wide range of age groups, a wide range of races and ethnicity and someone that information's fully evaluated by the FDA is advisory committee. Next week. We'll have additional information to really inform the recommendations with CDC or the C I. P did yesterday was really make recommendations in anticipation of these results. But they can be refined based on what the FDA and their advisory committee actually determined. Now the CDC is reputation has taken a hit during this pandemic. Guidance on testing and school re openings has sometimes been influenced by political pressure. So how do you think a new administration can restore confidence in the agency? So I think one of these like when I think about the vaccines situation currently, the key thing to keep in mind is that the E C. I P is not. It's the independent group of physicians, scientists, public health officials who come together and really review the data River to review the facts, review The evidence and the makeup, eventually Advisory Committee that's the advisory committee and they make recommendations to CDC. And then CDC that makes recommendations and buy a large those recommendations of the pipe makes the CDC usually fit makes us well. And so we'd be looking for after the recommendations are made by a CFP. What a CDC actually say is their alignment. Is there agreement with what A C I P s saying as well. Now, as you know, distribution of the vaccine is going to be handled by the states. And a couple weeks ago, I spoke with the head of Maine's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr Nirav Shah, and he told me his state does not have enough money to build the infrastructure required to make sure everybody who needs it gets the vaccine. Here's what he said. We at the state level are ready to receive the baton to have that baton pass to us to begin the vaccination process, but without proper funding. It'll be like putting up a tent poles without having the tent. And he said, This is true of many other states, too. So Dr Marie to do you think the federal government is ready to provide the money that is going to be necessary? I think it's important to provide the adequate resources to public health What I've seen in the past in public health emergencies during my 10 20 years, the Chicago Department of Public Health Was that there would be large Pulis's of funding that would come to public health agencies of the state and local level during a crisis and then shortly after the crisis, But then the funding would actually go away. And so public health infrastructure really has suffered over time, and there is a need There's a strong immunization system that's in place, but it has to be enhanced that it has to be strengthened so that actually, people can actually get the vaccine in an equitable fashion. That's Dr Julie Morita. She is executive vice president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is a thunder of NPR. Today. She was speaking with us in her personal capacity as a volunteer for the Biden transition Teams. Coben 19 Advisory board. Dr Morita. Thanks for your time. Thank you. President

An aerialist on listening to your body's signals

"Over my career as an aerialist. I've learned to listen to signs from my body. He's most important job is to keep me alive this visceral sensation. Fear can be part of the fun. Why do you think we go on. Roller coasters watch are movies. Or in my case. Fly through the air but it will only be funding. We have choice in those moments. Those who enjoy horror movies do so when they know they can look away. When i swing through the edge to take the hands of a pot and a high up in a circus tent ultimately i have a choice of releasing if i trust that person to catch me listening to these signs is an incredibly important life skill and not just for renton junkies like me. If we don't know how to listen and respond to are warning signs of fear. We risk being overwhelmed by a fight flight or freeze stress response when teaching circus. I say my students feel the sensations every day and when they do there's a unique opportunity to talk about them to acknowledge and trust those feelings including how to say no and something doesn't feel right. This is a great foundation for communication about bodies elsewhere. The isn't scary awkward. It's normal unexpected. Because the truth is i'm not just teaching circus skills and teaching consent alongside teaching circus. I have the privilege of working with hundreds of young people each year in my role as a sexual harm prevention educator. I hear their stories firsthand annoy from statistics and experience that the majority of survivors no therapies and teenagers experience high rates of intimate partner violence. That is from someone that dating young people want to know how to talk to each other about intimacy. The more i helped teenagers undestand sexual consent. The more i realize learning aerial can help us navigate life on the ground. So let me explain what. I mean by teaching consent through circus. Let's imagine it's your first time on a trapeze. Usual instruction might go something like okay. You're going to hook your legs over the box climbing up the ropes. Pull yourself to sit. And don't like god. This approach is driving. Something forward without fully checking in with the person and is focused on what i want from them. I'm telling them how to move their body and win. Regardless of the comfort or fia this often results in terrified beginners. Who never come back. Meanwhile the way now talk to my students gives a lot more kids. The person ensuring fully informed ready and parts of the conversation. How do you feel about it. Yeah i feel. I could probably do it. Do you want to have a guy that's it. Yes yeah but the inside of your foot. It yes not. How's that feel perfect. Good and i'm going to put your hand on your back there. You go. I'm going to hold onto your like then i'm gonna put my hand here now. Do you feel safe to put your hand on the ball. How's that for you okay. Going forwards and backwards. We got you this type of language like how you feeling. Are you okay with my hand. Here help circus performers succeed. I believe it also reduces the risk of accidents as a result of my students trusting and being able to act on what they feeling at any given moment. This specificity is required later in life. If and when someone wants sexual intimacy but because it's not a normal part of our interactions it can feel so oakwood and people might think it's easier to say less but saying less can lead to ambiguity problems and potentially abuse there is of course no specific script for the language of consent. The tone and words will be unique to you. It's just a slight reframing of our lexicon to inject choice anytime we're interacting with others bodies intimately or otherwise for example using i when i'm talking about what unfeeling and questions more than statements when it involves the other person

Why won't my Lily of the Valley bloom?

"Barbara email this week and she asks. I transplanted some lilies of the valley a few years ago about twenty plants and they barely bloom because she says they're really old plants and they get west son now I'm not sure. I can give her a full answer. Sometimes i have only a few of them but some years i get fairly outstanding flowering some years practically zero but when she mentioned that she had that gets west son. That is probably going to be a Significant deficiency for the plants lily. The valley is more shade entity. Then it is a son entity I grew up with a wealth neighboring house that back the house. They had an area between the foundation and a sidewalk long a porch et cetera. So it was in an tramped area and they had little valley in there. That was so many flowers you smell it. Clear to the elliott. If you will now. I think then it may be that the west sun is deficiency factor there. Because let me. The valley is for shade primarily. Now they will live obviously in the west sun. But i think that might be part of it then beyond that. I don't really know other than i'm assuming that. In the twenty year period it has gotten pretty darn dense. there may be some help in doing some thinning Anytime well now is not the best time but very early spring as it starts to come up go in and actually since the patch to the extent of letting more light in twos lower part which may help get the plants into a flying stage beyond that. I don't know for sure what would be happening. it's one of those things where i guess you have to go with the blessing of having a ground cover. That is doing well even though it doesn't flower however the valley is so fragrant that To miss the flowering is is not disastrous deficiency in the plant. But what she might do is take some of the thinning material. Put them in a spot on well other than in the west sun preferably the north side of the garage to house. Whatever see if they will reestablish and then flower more in that shaded area but beyond that Count them as a healthy living plant but just the disappointment of the flowering try some thinning and reestablishing in a shady area. See if that will work.

The Long Legacy Of The Arecibo Telescope

"So let's step back for a minute edit and get a better sense of how the telescope has been used over the years. Tell me about what it does. What kind of projects it's worked on. So one of the really neat things about the The observatory that's very versatile. Scientific instrument most telescopes radio. Telescopes don't have the ability to send out light. They only capture late at the observatory. We can send and capture late when an asteroid coming by. We're pretty much a flashlight that we turn on we send out to. It comes back right. We can tell you how far these objects are down to a meters unbelievable add narrate and we care about where these asteroids are going to be because what if one day this thing comes around and gets too close to earth if we can let people know this is going to happen next year we can actually prepare for it like dinosaurs. They didn't have a space program so they can get to prepare for anything. That's true we do have that on the dinosaurs. We don't have much. But we have out of cbo and we have the direct understanding of asteroids because i also think just from an outsider's perspective like this telescope does really play a role in our cultural imagination. It contributes to our sense of off. You know about the universe. Like i think i remember in the seventies it was used to deliberately beam a message into space. You know like hey. We're here like i mean it really has like not only these scientific contributions but these cultural contributions it's like an it's an inspirational place. You know oh yeah. I love marvel. I'm love marvel comics. And things like that and i was watching. Although i'm a little old doesn't matter. I was watching a cartoon about the avengers and the avengers were flying off to the odyssey observatory to save it. Who was that still in the cartoon. Oh my gosh so yes it really is you know. It's not like one of those fields of science or scientific tools that really stays in academia right. It provides a broader context for understanding. The universe for non-academic says well which i think is is really special and important. It's like bench because of its versatility. It gets to be part of not only applied science but just part of typical day to day life. You may not see it. But it's there in cultural context. It's there you know saving your life making sure this asteroid is not coming towards you. It's really cool so it sounds like at this. Recent damage has big implications in terms of slowing down a lot of research. What kind of research are we going to be missing out on right now with it down well for personal perspective. I actually had some observing runs. We're gonna come up in late. September through october where we were going to be studying mars with radar this year mars was going to be the closest it was going to be and also observable from the osce observatory until the year twenty sixty seven so it. This year was literally a once in a lifetime. Opportunity to observe mars with other. See all twenty twenty twenty twenty worst year ever. Yeah okay so the damage that happened. This year isn't the first hurdle for the observatory right hurricane. Maria damaged the observatory twenty. Seventeen you you were working there right like. Tell me about that experience. Su twenty seven one hurricane. Maria came by not only was. I was still working at. The observatory actually stayed at the observatory. That's where i went for shelter so i got to see the winds combined and the damage For me one of the things that like hit me the most or make me realize the damage the most after the hurricane when we went outside. And when you look across the telescope and it's in the middle of a beautiful rain-forest greenery everywhere and that day after the hurricane when we went outside there's there is no green left it just nothing just brown. Everything was brown. The trees were dead. You see all the way down to the soil. It was impactful in the sense of. Wow this is the damage of the hurricane. Awesome packed full as a puerto rican. Who's used to seeing their island. Be beautiful and green selling costs high. Like that's gone all gone in day. That's tough that you know it starts being Quite a bit less about the science at that point. Oh very quickly. I mean after the hurricane when there was no utilities at all on the island we still had a couple of generators so people from of see what would drive up. We pump water for them and they leave with a bunch of water the to drink water. Well so okay. Let's let's let's talk a little bit about the funding struggles right because there have been ongoing funding struggles for the telescope. Break that down a little bit for me yes. The telescope which is owned by the national science foundation has had some funding struggles in that the budget that is used to operate. It has been going down. And it's gone down from anywhere from about fourteen mil per year with the expected current contract. They could go all the way down to two million gotcha into and so what will that mean for for the telescope and the people that work on it. So as there is diminishing funds going there They'll be less available time for people to go explore go observe pulsars and find the first evidence for gravitational waves which won the telescope a nobel prize in physics and nineteen seventy-three. It's

"And that's why there's so much excitement around the genetic causes because you can really pinpoint for a sub population what the causes are genetic point of view against a little trickier when you're When you're looking at the the environment there's so many different confounding variables that you want to Want to control for that. Really understand if it's a pesticide or Air pollution. so we're taking a very holistic approach in all the work that we do is just genetic in other work that were they. Were doing supporting us just around the environment because we do think that there's something in between it. It's that attraction between Both which makes people are probably susceptible to getting parkinson's disease We have for example launched request for applications and asked researchers send an application set specifically address environmental causes. We're going through those going through those reviews in picking those types of experiments that we think could really help us better understand what could be environmental causes of the disease. Which if they are real in one of the things that we've been advocating for through our policy work is that for some of the environmental toxins that have been linked to parts to try to get these taken out of the environment in one particularly called paraquat. We've been doing a lot of work for And we're still you know pushing so this is an area. I think where a patient community could help to keep putting pressure on to get some of these toxicants out of the environment that we know could be leading to neurodegenerative diseases like parkinson's so a couple more questions in the remaining time marco. I think you're gonna take on related to parkinson 'isms and how do Ps p lewy body disease parkinson's A lot of therapeutic pipeline. We're talking about is their opportunity that that some of those drugs could have effects across these different diseases. There there are a -tunities at least parking Are aspects in symptoms of parkinson's are individuals. That are not officially being diagnosed with parkinson's disease and that gets back to just the challenge. It is to to diagnose in differentiate between someone who has parkinson's some of those showing Sodium symptoms So for example a good way to kind of definitively know if if you have parkinson's is that the parkinson's treatment such as a leonardo who actually in the individual in that diagnosis made said i deal with a lot of time diagnosis. Our for for parkinson's so bartolotta these different types of Diseases tap into either commoner different types of of brain circuitry and there's a lot of effort at 'em jeff f.

And engaging with large percentages of arkansas's population given the variability in the disease with different types of causes in internal response to treatments one of the areas. The foundation is established as a goal is to promote more inclusivity in research for parkinson's disease In so he. Can you just talk a little about why. This is important. And particularly important for improving the current care of parkinson's but also the development of new treatments shore So i referenced earlier. sort of a met. One parkinson's patients have met one parkinson's patients and that's true but what also is true. Is that the way we live our our diet. the don't do. We live in a rural area. Do we live in an urban area. what is our access to care. What type of doctors did. All of that has an impact on our health. And if we don't actually have a very diverse population that is participating in searching and partnering in this drug development enterprise than we don't really we don't really have a good ability to make sure that what we're developing is meeting the needs of patients across the spectrum and secondly that is actually working in the environment they live in those with the environment actually playing a role of the way their health is is is is a is playing out and so it's extremely important to make sure that we have a really solid representation in In research of making sure that where we're aware of all of the cat all of the aspects that may go into impacting living with parkinson's potentially causing parkinson's affecting the trajectory of parkinson's etcetera and so that's why it's extremely important to make short to underscore that we want to get as much of a very very Participation in sort of varied kind of perspective on this disease An as to this goal.

Always are you said the title is an optimist considers mortality which seems pretty timely in the era that we're living in of. Cova. But the book really focuses on his experiences during twenty eighteen. It is funny as that title in a year like this when so many people are being asked to to grapple with such a difficult times of loss and sickness and fear, and really all the things that genuinely do make up our own mortality. and Michael didn't know any of those things when Miss Book title was written you know again, that was all going back to twenty nineteen or even before so. You know what the book really is about and I think this is You know. So interesting about Michael he knows very well. THAT HE IS A. Celebrated as the emblem of. Optimism and hope and grace and courage and what I think he's exploring in this book is what are the limits of that kind of approach? What does it mean to feel like you're losing your optimism because it's just one thing after another so I haven't read the book yet. I can only imagine the beautiful things that he is going to have to say about this, and again, what a gift to all of us to have a story like that to read in a year like twenty twenty. So it's just another thing that you know I feel. So grateful to Michael, forgiving us and I, and I can't wait I can't wait to read it and I can't wait for everyone to be talking about it. You'll be able to buy Michael's book wherever you enjoy buying your books. Yeah. Now, you can probably get you know these days. People can probably just pick it up on Amazon unlike when I started at the Fox sedation that I had to actually walk into a into a noble.

Roundtable because what we're GONNA do is really cover off on some of the highlights of twenty years of research progress in Parkinson's. Not just the role of the foundation. But what these new developments mean for people living with the disease whether you have the disease or someone you love has the disease and you know some of the exciting really science-fiction he kinds of Projects that we see coming down the line in the next year, you know in spite of covert lots of progress remains everything from targeting our NA in new drugs.

Oh, my gosh. Well, first of all, I should say nobody is more excited the knee. This is Michael's fourth book, and here is a story that I can tell you when I first at the Michael J. Fox Foundation, I called the person who hired me at that time the VP of communications and I said, are there any books I should read? So I had worked in research, a communications of really my whole life but. I didn't know that much typically about Parkinson's is I. I came into this job and I said thirty bucks I should read and she said well, I, don't know if there's really a Parkinson's book but you know you should read Michael's memoir lucky man. So. I. Will Never Forget to remember Barnes and noble that I walked into This is two thousand five. So Amazon was not even profitable yet Larry and you know and I walked in and I found his little book in the in the memoirs section. And I thought. Well, you know I'm going to read this this weekend I'm like doing my homework. And I started reading it. It is like he is an amazing writer and it was like I couldn't put it down. So that was how I started to come to know that Michael is such a gifted communicator and storyteller and bat book you know just stayed with me, and of course, now in my job, I have all of his books and he kinda teases me because they're very dog-eared.

But until that time these new compounds. To a certain extent and for me again, fortunate have allowed me to get back to pretty much a normal can do the things I love to do and and allowed to do that while we continue to wait. For those disease, modifying drugs and believe me I'm an optimist I. Think you have to come and due in large part to the foundation are the as are these first three things that we have come down pipeline to help patients and I think that's so important to point out that as we're so focused on a cure and closing our doors were also at the same time focused on making people's lives better today, and so we did fund early development of Breda. Over a million dollars on early stage clinical trials there we funded scales to measure disconnect to help enable the development of covering and these drugs are helping people today there are a lot of benefits to them. The impact is related to people in our capability and I seen a strengthen that capability over the. Last. Really. Ten years if you will and that is. Really getting people in a position with the skills and capabilities, tell choose that Broadway programs but still the wants to have the highest probability of success and then I think the other thing is getting much better at holding people accountable for delivering results and making sure that the money we're spending is going to yield the last possible probability of a positive result and it falls both in the area of drugs for today that helped with success symptoms.

Shared concerns, our shared struggles are nonpartisan. And work together to try to alleviate those concerns to address those concerns by following the science by advocating for healthcare policies that expand access in red and allow for prescription drugs to be affordable.

"I do and it makes me remember this motivational quote that sometimes motivates need that I have hanging in my closet by my workout gear. funnily, enough that says the only bad workout is the one you don't do and I say this because it's what I always say Parkinson's is that the best exercise is the one you will actually do right. So whatever exercise that you will do and do regularly is the one that's good for you. So that's why we haven't as a run slash walk right? Paul. Crawl maybe. Whatever you'll do, it is good for you and exercise is so important in Parkinson's and I feel like I'm saying this all the time, but it's good for your general health. But in Parkinson's, it's also good for decreasing your motor and your non motor symptoms. It helps your medication work better, and if you do it with other people, it helps prevent or lessen the isolation that can come along with Parkinson's. So it's you know it's good for everything and and it's just as important as the medication that you take. That's great and just do what you can do like the nobody.

"That Co hosting the podcast I, miss our chats and the cars honking their horns outside your window and you know you miss it that much. I'm sure we can arrange some sort of home swap. Amazing Doing podcasts is it's really so much fun for me. It's a good break from all the meetings. I usually sit in and all the tight deadlines that my boss has. Gives me out all my project. ooh. I should stop you right there because also. Says Holly Titles Chief Marketing Officer for Michael. J. Fox Foundation Holly. Welcome sure Hayes the new Gal. In spite of her snarky comments, not only know Rachel but I crowned myself the president of the Rachel Dolan Fan clubs so I will happily take the teasing. Feeling is mutual. Love here but we welcome to you both the best part of this time. Of Year. I think are the full previews whether it's what the watch on TV what movies premiering. I'm really into what fashions and style is you can tell a today. All we need to know though is we need to wear orange and listen close because we have the Michael J. Fox foundation fall preview for virtual events and activities all things that you can plan for this fall plus some behind the scenes back stories you don't WanNa mess. So let's roll out our virtual orange carpet and get Rolim. Everybody knows a little thing called Cova sort of crashed and burned a lot of our plans this year including most of what we had planned for Parkinson's awareness month back in April, and that also includes many of the things that we planned for this fall including something called the new. York City Marathon this fall in November. So we usually have a really good showing by team Fox but we've had a little bit of time to prepare and we've got a lot of good things for this fall. Some really cool events and there's I'm using air quotes virtually something for everyone is Nicer Michael J. Fox Foundation, we'll be kicking off twelve months of initiatives recognizing the twentieth year as an organization which will continue through the end of two thousand, twenty, one this fall many of the events we discussed today fall under the the the here campaign what what does that mean exactly Holly I'm so glad you asked Larry. So you know some of our faithful podcast listeners may know that. The foundations tad line is that we are here until Parkinson's isn't honestly it says at all about our commitment to our mission, and also what's baked into our DNA, which is that when Michael started our foundation, the idea was never to stick around forever. But really to create such a targeted infusion of resources into the problem Parkinson's disease that we're going to radically for once and for all when we do that a likes to say, we're going to go out of business we came up about tagline around the end of last year little did we that Kobe was gonna come along and that we would have a bit of a delay in really celebrating our tagline and bringing it to life Like Rachel says do this whole series of virtual events taking place at the end of this year now for so excited to share this with our community through a kickoff weekend that's happening the very beginning of October and really while we don't celebrate anniversaries what we do want to celebrate and highlight is all the progress and impact that we've.

"Were sent to their offices, how many social media posts and re tweets and things like that. Have Richard. Olive, it aimed toward affecting public policy. In this case, namely the votes of members of the House and Senate, and so the weight of all, that is really what will help tell us whether we're being successful in our efforts. All right. So I want you get out your scoring Pencil, Ted this is the best test you'll ever get because you get to self evaluate what grade would you give the foundation as it relates to the success measurements you've just outlined. I would give it. I'm not going to be arrogant we can always do better. So I'm GONNA give it an A. minus and I'm doing that because since the policy department was formed with Michael J. Fox Foundation. It's a, it's an organization wide effort we have. Our policy team is only what people see because we've got tremendous backup support for marketing communications, digital strategies pretty much every department. and. So we have a really broad based. Effort with within the foundation to assure that we're making as many touch points as possible. So it's it's really not just that single. Gets emailed out in somebody takes action on we've got a much more holistic broacher foundation. So that's that's why I'm willing to scored. So high because where we have had much more direct impact. Since. Policy Department was formed at Michael J. Fox Foundation then we had been able have previously. When did that happen? that. Was a little over four years ago. Two Thousand Sixteen. Wow. It's been that long. Yeah. Yeah. I mean think about how much you've done I mean that's amazing. What did you catch a little bit on what Ted was talking about as far as the measurement of success? For, me as as an advocate. Building relationships with staff members on Senate and House side, and being able to call them up to where they know your name. They know what you're calling about or mostly which call about unless there's something different that comes up and the idea is that those relationships very far. I. Haven't example where one of my congressmens chief of staff went to work for committee in when I went back the next time the gentleman that replaced him, he says, Paul told me you are going to be coming and he told me that this is what you work on and. Is thanks for for for letting US know or thanks for that thanks to you. We're still continuing the process of helping with Parkinson's so that that was a neat experience for me is Israel.

It wasn't right away that I was able to to find something that works and I think it's as addition we know that not all medications to work for every every person. So there there has to be some patients in terms of avoiding to see whether something is going to affect or not. But if it's not working, then it's probably time to talk to your physician and see whether they can make an improvement on what that drug regimen is moved to the doctor which is talking. About Research and I'd like Maybe Dr. Deputy can start by tug and some some of the research that she's done. I think in terms of using technology to deliver care especially in this day and age when people can't leave very easily what are we doing to improve on Perkins Care in in Junior. Really important topic and I mentioned a few moments ago that I've done and three randomized control studies looking at the effects of cognitive behavioral therapy for the treatment of depression in Parkinson's disease the first of those studies was traditional brick and mortar come into the clinic in order to participate. In this research program the last two studies that were recently completed in the past year. Involved administering the cognitive behavioral therapy on Telemedicine Platform.

"But what are some of the strategies that other people may be open to exploring during this time? Mindfulness is just simply about how do we do something that really helps us to be present in the present moment and to flow a little bit with it to not fight with ourselves or reality so much mindfulness in many ways, there's simply about. Learning, to witness selves and our reality instead of judging it or only. Things in it, and there's so many ways to do that. Right one of the things I do for my my practices every day I go for a walk and for me, that's my unless sometimes I listened to my things sometimes I listen to a book or music, but it's just something I do I feel inflow I get to not have to do so much I kind of witnessed my experience. So maybe it's doing some watercolor 'cause it just. Allows me to you know be and do something close. So maybe it's a little art maybe some doodling maybe you read a couple of pages from a book that kind of feels like a hug to your heart you know maybe you people garden and like to me that's crazy that feels peaceful but to me like I'm a New Yorker like I I, don't have a green thumb on my body but for some people, that's a wonderful activity so. Anything that helps you. Feel like you've caught up to yourself. It's about noticing the grades Buddhist Out Masters said that one of the greatest meditation practices is to drink tea but he said, can you drink tea only drink tea? So that means not at the same time thinking about your to do list not at the same time scrolling your email writes a single tasking just doing something. And paying attention to it savoring something as a mindfulness practice right you can either eat an apple and not notice beaten apple or you can like really eat an apple and be paying attention to how it tastes and smells and how you feel. It's whatever gives you that feel of like for me it's a deep exhale, but there is no should funny story. My. Wife had bought some pears and was chopping them up before dinner as a appetizer and I was chewing on this. Son Have had some of this parenting because, Dan, that's an apple. So I don't have.

"I think they have been since kind of the beginning of language that stories are what seemed to transmit messages the best and i'm curious how you go about the process of the architect in stories for people that are english the when it comes to marketing so storytelling is one of the most powerful tools these days and not you're you're totally right i think it's one of the most ancient forms of communication they stick with us we can remember them i am because before before we had riding before we had any kind of media all we had to kind of communicate with each other was stories them and they do seem to to stick with us an impact us in ways than it helps it helps light up other areas of our brain a lot of us have a really difficult time talking about our business especially at like foundation members who are very intelligent people who are building software as a service companies on especially i think really smart people had our our extra challenged in this because we love to get in the weeds of of really kind of the technical things of what we do like saying you know in your style guide you need to have the x ynz together or and we get off and then and then win where we're talking to other people do we kinda they lose interest and so by creating an interesting story it empowers us to talk about our business whether it's just than a one on one conversation whether it's a an a webinar that were were hosting whether it's in a podcast interview or whether we're on stage empowers us to to really create an emotional connection with our audience through the power story i'm so there's a couple of really easy different tools that i like to work with people one of them that's been really exciting for me even though i don't really like the name of the thing is called a b hag and so this is one of my first first things that i like to explore with maya with clients i work with and that's a be hired as a big harry audacious goal and so this is something.
