I was writing books and read them out loud to them. They were brutally honest and say it's really boring right now, and they were always right like.

Don't you have any friends your own age? It was really funny. I was here first, and they all came in so anyway. Having his friends love what I did certainly gave me a lot of credit. Credit in my own family friends that would say I know someone in a gallery can I bring this to a gallery and see what they say and I'd say go right ahead. I'm going I'm just too shy. It's something I'm shy I. DON'T WANNA promote myself. That's just not who I am. My goal with my business.

And I remember the morning of the bike marathon I was with my friend Wendy and a couple of other friends and I said to all of them. You know what I said. I'm not going to finish this, so don't worry about that. I'm going to go as far as I can go maybe about ten miles and then I'm going to drop out the. Don't you worry? And I said I'm going to do the best that I can, and then on the bike marathon I hit mild ten, and then mile fifteen friend, and then mild twenty and I was like Oh. My Gosh I'm going to do this, I. I can't believe I'm GonNa do this, and then I was hitting the last few miles. It's it ends last. Part of it is on the Verizon Bridge which is huge bridge, and this isn't a show and I kept pumping my legs and I was like I'm GonNa, do this I'm going to do this? And then when I descended down the last half of the bridge and I could see the finish line Fran. It was the greatest moment of my life I was gonNA. Do it I said Oh my God. I'm doing this I'm doing this. And when I crossed that say this line. It was the most triumphant. Day of my life, because not only did I finish the marathon. It represented finishing and crossing the finish line with cancer. And I remember. My friend said to me. You Know Valerie I. Know You said you didn't you didn't think you were going to finish it that she goes? You know what? Wendy said I knew you would. And so that part of the the of the pink coke is that finish line and that finish line for all of us. The crossing that finish line to get the justice, we want to end the corona virus, and and everything that we need to do in our lives we can do, and the other thing is. That humor is so important.

When you, your strength comes, and there's a saying that I love that. I live by that says from an old acting dry had tried to vet that said. I need my tears to get to my steel. And it is not a weakness to cry. It's not a weakness to be sad because it's something that shows your strength and vulnerability, and there's nothing nothing to be ashamed of for that. So when people say on Soy, I'm crying. Never ever apologize and I remember when I had the Boma and I just was diagnosed with my parents were with me and I got the phone calls from the doctor's office and I was crying and crying, and my dad literally picked me up from the floor. And held me and said we're going to fight this. Come on, girl we're going to do. We're going to do this. Don't you worry you're going to be fine.

"Thank you, thank you so much for having me Oh. Please I'm just so glad you took the time to be with me and my audience. I'm curious about that title. It kind of conjures up that cartoon character you know bursting into this of muscle and fury. How does the title connect to the message of your show and address the struggle that we are presently facing? Of course, the pig coach tidal could not have been a better title title for this solar show that I have about being a three time. Cancer survivor the pink. Ribbon as we know, is from breast, cancer, and I am a breast cancer survivor of Stage two breast cancer, and recently conquered stage, four metastatic breast cancers, and so we know the ribbon is pink for breast cancer. I also had been diagnosed when I was thirty with non Hodgkin Lymphoma, stage three. And you know until I, wrote the show, but the ribbon four lymphoma. Is that Lime Green? Of the Hulk so it, the title represent both cancers. The Pink Hulk La- vulne add breast cancer, and then the Hoke is that character who uses to anger to make change and to empower himself, and I felt that same kinship with the Green Hulk, and with the pig coke, because I was so angry when I got cancer a second time, and then a third time the anger fueled me fight back adversity from life from death, and kept me going, and the irony is that I actually.

He taught me so much football. Here's the reason. Were able to be the best thirty seven thirteen and I came in at the end. The first quarter and threw for four touchdowns ran for another. Not all because of him. He was a genius understanding of bigotry. Phil Mickelson as we talk about that chip shot. If that and that match it was a in how the lane based the the the grass scared that he had to move this he did it in such detail they it could take away a defense like that and teach me that. I could have sold that and we beat the bears. We won three games year. He had unbelievable skill. His his fallout guy. He had suddenly demons. He was against so many people and he had just volatile volatile personality. That just was demon driven that that kept him from being an unbelievable coach. And finally you know he just. He went to follow they. He went to the first time mctigue off one became all. Here's a free agent center and third year he's becomes all pro each Jim Ringo a Green Bay and he and walking in the meeting room says crawl by asked. He said all pro barnyard country. He just he. He was self destructive. Yeah and and but I'll tell you I have. All of the without brands. Rocks teach me the fundamentals of how to redeem just of the quarterback position. He was the most important mechanic for me. Now when I look back together with but grant later in my career. That's a pretty good. That's pretty good now. Now with norm. Van Brooklyn Fran when it went when I was sinkhole. Speculating and and and getting ready for today. Nineteen seventy-three was a super bowl season for you guys. Okay nine seventy three. Tell me about this fram. You guys were nine and go in seventy three. You had a Monday night. Football game on the road at Atlanta and Norm Van Brooklyn coaching. The Falcons found a way to beat. You guys He he he he did and And and and and that was it we we hit about a bad time because also the week before that Cincinnati which was like the worst team in the AFC. They beat us even more. Handling the Falcons beat us and I think it comes back to the time bit for both games. They're back to back clinched division so early that you know we didn't. We didn't have that that that that same drive but shows you how narrow the margin is between the bottom. The top famous football. You know last last one fram. It's with with current age new age quarterbacks if people were thinking back to the. Hbo At Fran Tarkenton Days. They see Russel Wilson. Play the way Russell runs around he. He's not the tallest in the world. Either were you. Both guys had unbelievably good arms. You're in the hall of fame. Maybe he'll be there one day but with with like the Dallas Cowboys. Back in the seventies giving you started in the early sixties with Roger. Roger The dodger. How many were there? A million comparisons with Roger. Stop back to to the way you played. Yes and he was A. He was a modern day mobile quarterback. Here's what they call a two quarterback. When I came in I was a free. There was pocket quarterbacks. In if you're any anything different than FAUCI quarterback you you. You were the wrong shadow of the town And I got mimics I got. It took them now sixty years to understand that the reason your mobile is not just to run the football. I did that. But if you're mobile you can buy time to give your receivers more time. Throw the ball down the field. That's what Patrick Mahomes does. That's what Russell Wilson got. They can run. But what they forget is that they. They felt ball. When I was Dan Marino book. I've look John United says record. My records have touchdown passes yard game. Hold completions stood for seventeen years. The one closest to me was seven years. Peyton manning's record stood for three years but one Marino broke. My record of those touchdown passes or you're not sure which one and the writers would would call me Kosh. I knew you were scrambler about. Saudi will run or pass. I had no idea that you broke all the passing records. It was a total misunderstanding. And so now you going forward. If you're not a two way quarterback able to throw and able to be mobile. You're not going to be competitive in the national football. Well one of those quarterbacks and speaking of the cowboys is Dak Prescott. Dax taken in the fourth round in. He's not a runner per se. Like you or Roger. The dodger Russell Wilson. Mike Vick whomever but but he does have some to way to him up with Dak. Are you a fan of Dak Prescott? I think he's really good player. And I think you'll get get better. And he does have the facility to run and the throw scramblers Roger. Starbuck was but then you go down south south of balance. I think south they'd to Houston and you and got that kid who came out of Clemson. He is a gentleman Too late quarterback of great skills to Roman scrambling great skills to flow. And that's what they're what what they're doing now the kid they get out of Lsu You know who watched out Ohio state was the number one pick by Cincinnati. Yeah like he can run and he can throw it. He's in the modern day stream and he had to you know in this case. Here's a kid that I did want after look any for two years. He played one year at at lsu. Getting do very well. They bring the offensive coordinator the quarterback coach for the New Orleans Saints who studied under that coaches of Reyat Modern Day offensive coordinator. He brings that guy to Alex. You put you in the right system as man robbed them put in for me and this kid let it up and played Bugsy Guy College. Football is the number one draft. And and so you've got to get into the place for. They've got somebody who understands modern day passing quarterbacking and then they got to understand that the person there if he if he can be. Nfl caliber passer. All of them are that. But he's gotta be able to be mobile and scramble and by time and give us but she has more time to get down the field because the speed of the receivers today is off the charts the the bottom line dot at the bottom line dot APP to learn more about what to Francis in his constituents do with small businesses.

There's not as much video game news Happening this week. Everyone's taking a ticket the Memorial Day week long weekend off. I Guess Fran but let's begin with what playing And I am in chapter twelve of final fantasy seven remake upscale enjoying it still enjoying it ten still plan to keep playing it from what I played so far. You know I'm not having finished the game But I am over halfway through from what I played so far Tom Scored Eight. Seems about right to me. That's the game mandate there. They gotTA stop well. I don't want to split anything but Back in sector seven and trying to stop a disaster from happening climbing stem Damon. What did you think of wall market in that whole section was so? That's stuff I wanted to bring that up because you said that was the best part of the game. Yeah I thought and I thought it was. You know cool but it didn't really stick out to when I got there I wasn't like Oh my God Justin was right. This is amazing curious about that too. Did you guys like the arena? Or what was it about that? Well it's an iconic part of the original game. I think people are really excited to see remade and it's sort of the game at its silliest you know with all the climax of how that section of the game ends and it's over the top and I think mark itself is just very atmospheric and I love how it's all just twisting alleys and like you know you're it's deliberately designed confuse you and make you lost and all the back alleys and I just I really really loved it. And it was like exactly what littler me pictured in my mind when I play the original game that sort of blown up into HD. And I just thought they really really good job recreating that atmosphere mcgahn felt like they made some of the cyclists harder to actually navigate in that area. Like a the in the slums. When you're I like China chase down cats kids and whatnot which seems to be a recurring theme. They actually highlighted on your map. They show you like you. I have where you're supposed to go but in Walmart it's totally different. You have to Kinda contractually go through stuff slash look up guides which I may have done agenda cough. I come as good guides. Good game. Yeah I guess it was cool and I do like how At first he is. You feel like you're getting lost within wall market but then by the time you leave. I feel like I know my way around. I can get where I want to go. I guess I just have so little memory of playing the original fantasy seven that I wasn't even like waiting for that moment to come up. You know they're all very short segments in the original Sam where you. I haven't played since we last talked fourteen or something. So you're catching up to me now. I regret fagin catch up. Yeah just waiting for you. Buddy recreate the entirety. Freegold watch and animal crossing cool. What how many do you have in there about sixty three? Wow each like ten thousand bells. At least know what's lucky is a pinball machines are twenty seven fifty but the arcade machines are sixty five thousand. That's what it is that I do like five pinball machines day add it all up but the arcade machines took a lot. But there's fewer arcade machines free gold watch. I was pretty impressed with the outcome. If you go to free. Gold watches INSTAGRAM. They put up a video for their fortieth anniversary. It looks really good. I feel like sixty. Five thousand is way more expensive than even the most expensive arcade cabinet of all time. Yeah those there's like these star wars fear cabinets recently. Which is did you guys see those. Relax sit down. It's like projecting on like the inside of a sphere. Those are like those like twenty five thousand dollars which is crazy if you take the economic value of a bell versus a real life dollar consider. You can grow those things on trees for a economy into turmoil but yeah second that reduces the value so it's much cheaper show building that's translates to a yen because it's like a hundred bells that makes. I never never tried to do the math on that. But there's also like there's also just a boot that you can sell so I wouldn't think about it too much shells. Yeah Chelsea worth a lot of lot of belts sea bass. Did you guys see pitas going after animal crossing yeah? I heard that but I didn't see her. Well there's like A. Is it an owl that runs the museum?

"Running. We had a waiting list. We were so out nine straight. We were so out and the only reason that close. Because we started getting bookings Detroit's other places Christmas show in another show in another show and so we just and the the snowball just kept getting bigger and you are celebrities. Because I gotTa tell you I guess. Put a little thing on my facebook page. That said that then it'd be chatting with the colonized sisters This week on my podcast. I mean I can't believe you guys are leveraging you saw people get a stock or I just been waiting salary. Guess that rigging and that's the other. He'll have to travel the task than the journey today. Our show is about cooking. Our show is about. Italians are show is about family and the importance of family. I miss a off family. Minestrone was always like this. It didn't matter if you were our blood family. If you somebody brought a friend home or whoever and you know it was come sit down. Have some pasta. We're about to sit down to eat. Stay that's just what you did. You didn't turn people away because you they were hungry. Everyone's always hungry doesn't matter so you assume they're hungry and they need to be so you feed them. That's what you do. I'm taking a bite him discussing. I just thought speaking of exactly and and in good faith because the good faces. You're hungry someone will do for you. That's just the way that we grew up. You know. In general parents want the best there is. There went their kids to always be fed have shelter and the arts are certainly not a stable base neck. You don't have that security that some nine to fibers half per se. But in my opinion. I don't even think that nine to find fibers have the security that they think they do anything so. We got a little bit of perspective. I I started going into beauty pageant. Were and my voice of I. Don't resist it away. She wanted you know me to pursue more. Get secure things but at the same time. She's still supported. I says as her children and his people and she wanted us to to follow our dreams and follow a heart so there was like this sort of clash between. Oh No. You shouldn't do in that. You should be doing this. 'cause that's safer but at the same time they were like over brings you joy so it was a little bit about his a little bit about and it kind of grounds us to where we are today with your show. It's it's our crippling of comic light support. Judge to try and get people some happiness and joy some laughter connection into until we can come out of this social coma do and I mean we. As humans have an animal instinct to congregate touching interact lost right now more some more than others because of being living alone versus living with family. You know I live with my sister. The brother John Stairs. That's so Carmelo's complaints all the time about certain physical touch that she don't forget about to get some touch right now. Woman inspect stuck with the sister is a blessing and a curse. Talia this show to be away for people to have some comic relief make them laugh right. Laughter's Best Medicine. Have THAT STRESS RELIEF. Right now it gets real bleak for people. I'm sure you know we get messages. some people say. Thank you for doing that. I was looking forward to it all week or this was a tough week and that was a really right and it was a big bright spot and people are very appreciative for it. People are very you know. We're also do. We have other efforts going on right now. Given the given circumstances so appreciative of those as well. So what the only reason why we keep pushing even with our stance out the things that we would hear her one woman say that is came up to set a meet and greet after the show and she said I lost my daughter over two years ago and I haven't laughed since and I just spent two and a half hours laugh at my fight off so she said something like that was so important to the thing is in the face of adversity. These kinds of experiences are so important for people in terms of a coping mechanism. We would do the things that we met you at And so we were doing greet. Afterwards people take pictures and there was a big crowd of people and then the crowd started to part. It was like a red seat and this little woman with really short cropped white hair came through and scrammed my hands and she goes. I already crying. She was and she says. I just had to meet you and say thank you because you were videos on youtube or the only thing. That got me through Chemo. For everybody's crying at that point but it was so lovely to me. You know at that point. We were having a hard time than the run of the show quite naturally and physically and you goes like in our dressing room like this why you keep covering. This is why we do it. He was right there because it does make a difference. Even our silliness makes it different. I really believe that the arts are a spiritual gift to help us to heal to be all that we can be. You know what canes is there. There is a reason why people talk about the news. That is that you're talking about. And then all of a sudden that divine inspiration as they say pick you and suddenly it's connecting to that spirit training and the arts have always been a way for people to talk about what they're going through whether it's emotional weather. It's about social political. It doesn't matter it's always been used as a way to get a message across to communicate to have to deal with major issues. You know something Carmelo yet. You're saying something that's really important. I I totally agree with that. Because one of the things that the arch do is. It gives us perspective kind of forces us to see things of somebody else. That's what makes art such a gift. You have it like a song that you really love singing million we do. I mean I think it's we put in our first show but I say case awry. That's what I was GONNA hang around. Iraq is one of my favorites K. As their The Ri- whatever will be will be. The future is not on just three rides. I it's so funny it's really is good message even for right now. There are things we cannot control. It's hard as we went to control every aspect of life. We can't so it's important to realize. Sometimes you gotta go with the flow. Sometimes whatever will be will be amen. I can't say anything else after that. Yeah absolutely and hate girls. I know before we wrap this up. I know the two of you have a very special project going on. We have an ongoing effort. Were doing I don't know if you know this France were at the time when we were doing a show together.

Icu comes to the front desk and takes them back for us. We actually don't like give it to ourselves to anything bat. But it's not about that. It's really just about knowing that there's GonNa be a bright spot in someone's otherwise crappy day you know what I mean. Have you heard from any of the nurses like do they know that you don't attach our name to it because the donations coming from so many different people and again really not about the recognition? It's just about providing a spot so you know what I mean and so we just send them back. We just send them back. We could you know. We know that there's no way to truly say. Thank you for what these people are doing. Anything is GONNA fall short so we figured well. Hey you know we love food and we know these poor people are working on stop and what they're going to go to the cafeteria in a hospital or to a vending machine where like Could know bring something from home a little soul food from how well I promise you that the next time we get together?

There's Oh did you ever play that role. Friend all my. Up Perfect is Adelaide. I know it's been on my bucket list among many other things so girls. I had not seen him since. I did that. Show in Philly and I got to catch your act and you know that was quite a while ago so much time. I made a little stuffy so I have a Cappuccino in front of me and some some discussing you know like bring enough to share with Fran. I well this is virtual little coffee. Klatch thing has an actor. I this is sensory details so I will. I just communicate to you as we're talking. I'm having my Cappuccino and day because you get married. You know girls that I I don't cook but I always so funny. Considering you come from an Italian fairway I know one a ten and I just did not want to learn how to cook. But I do know how to make my mother's discussing and that's to die for so we're GONNA be talking about favorite recipes in a minute but first I wanNA find out. What have you been up to since your cell and silly. Oh well I mean a lot. We were still traveling. The country obviously with our state because we have ten of them more than ten of them now all over the country with we went out to California and we opened up Boston. You know you on Long Island at studio that Reuters. Yeah Lizard Hearse. Yeah I know you're so. Tell me how the shows evolve. I mean do you suck with Recipe this is somebody who doesn't know how to cook. So how do you cook up these ships Kelvin? Basically what happens as I mean first? We got a million ideas. I mean you're talking to some very creative people so we come up with a basic idea of something that would make a good subject. Matter for instance we have our wedding show that you saw you also have all he's saying. Sakala marry sisters where we actually have to cater a Jewish Shiva. Not that that would happen. But it's a great idea right so we take and we have a creative team that works every closely resigned and so our main writer director. His name is Jay fell down. He actually writes our first three after and then brings it to the table and we all read it through and we. You know talk about some ideas. There's an actual script which I'm surprised at as an audience member it just. It seems so organic and just like you were just doing this on the spot. It's kind of like a blueprint you start with back now except there's a script we don't always follow it but as I'm sure what we also do and it was actually during that time that we first met you and is they used to call him. I sisters started out as sitting. Shiva with the calories. This and we actually get a reading of it right there at the theater that we were doing where you were doing to. Your mom moved joining the wedding show. We always test them with the reading. In front of an audience. We get their feedback. We implement some of the feedback into the next draft. Girls get experience. Wouldn't it come from your so talented Well mean first off. Flattery will get you everywhere so. Thank you remember honestly. It grew up from my experience growing up with talion family. Our family generations. You know the matriarchs passed down there cooking techniques and all of that even more important is just define that we always had in the kitchen. You know the kitchen is the hardest house so our our grandma passed down stuff to mob has and we were always in the kitchen. We're always playing such fabulous Italian place Jean Rosemary. Clooney you know some Sanchez. And that's why I'm so shots Fred. Like when you grew up in your tank family wasn't wasn't everybody always in the kids pro and yes and my mother used to get so mad because it was the smallest room in the House and I'm one on one attention everybody would be in there and that's my mother's making the source would start early in the morning on Sunday. And then we go to math and then we come back and here. But during the course of the Celeste cooking and the meatballs and we would be eating the doll and she would be slapping trying to get out of the kitchen and this was what I grew up and then I. I didn't think I was Italian. Just thought I'm like oh. My hand is like everybody else and then. I found out it's like not every culture does it. So this is my experience and this is what well then you James. Hey you can cook now. Well you know what I grew up in the sixties and seventies so I was My you had small kitchen. Did you guys have to kitchens? You have the kitchen downstairs kitchen upstairs with just one catch now. The only had one kitchen. Yeah we have we have the two I mean. Now it's now it's a little brother's little apartment 'cause slack but yeah how'd you're probably doing no Lazy Lazy? He loves this. He was always wanted to stay home. Video Games commercial going on right now where they actually use the word couch potato tree and has gleaned. Dong that and he's knowing I'm like yeah. You've been doing your civic duty for the past thirty years. Yeah Yeah you know family. You can't live with them and or without him. I think that's the way he won't touch. Let me tell you. He said he's social distancing himself from the gifted how you doing your show. I mean I saw some stuff on facebook and you will have some technical difficulties. I'm trying to be kind of hear. I hear it did very tail. We are about live event. That what we are. And that's what we do you adapt during this time but we aren't technical. You know what I mean but and and the reason we're doing it just because it's making a difference. People are having a good time. People are saying it's a bright spot in their week and I said I told them the last time I was like only for you people only because we get so much. Are we willing to fail? So colossally on a weekly basis. Yeah really it's rising to the occasion. I mean we can look at that situation if you open your heart and you just pass it forward..

Better Communication Through Letters

"Debbie Ronca is President of Sequoia coaching a Certified Life Coach. Speaker and disc profile trainer with John Maxwell team she is also the author of the family letter how to intentionally develop a culture of honor encouragement and value with your loved ones a bestseller in nine relationship in Harrington Categories Ronco wants start a global movement. So other families also benefit on the family wetter. We're going to talk about this today with Debbie. Debbie welcome to the show. Thank you so much for coming on. You are locked them. And thank you for having me of course so debbie for a lot of our listeners. That might not know what a family letter is. Could you go ahead and tell them what the impact of a family letter is and really what they could get out of it? That's a great question. Read on the family letter was basically something that we started as a tradition in our family years ago when our kids were growing up we had the intention of teaching them how to use their words To be encouraged others to be able to use the words to bless another person. And you know. Sometimes it's really hard for kids especially to verbalize. They feel a little embarrassed or uncomfortable. So we've found that using a letter was the safe way to go. That's great So I myself actually have done something like a family letter before in my family. It's not quite what you do But it really helped teach me how to express myself to my family in a healthy way and really be able to communicate and open wider doors. Is that the same hope that you are looking for with your letter. Absolutely the whole intent really is to let the other person know why their loved valued in celebrated and when you hear that from other family members it really just builds wonderful foundation of trust and connection and a bond and read what we did specifically is. We made it a tradition on our birthdays. We thought why not birthdays the day. Everyone is celebrated right so why not let that be the day that we received this letter and so we taught our children from the time they were young and of course we made the what the intent that had to be in the letter? Simple so they could do it and you know when I speak at women's events I always tell the moms don't worry about the grammar. Don't worry about the punctuation year teaching them how you used the words and you don't ever want to make them feel it has to be perfect because it's coming from their heart and of course as our family grew and I say read. We've been doing this now for over thirty years and after thirty years our children thirty eight thirty seven and thirty five. They still want their letters. I mean it is a big tradition in our house. Love that I love that. That's fantastic. Could you dive a little deeper into the content of these family letters absolutely well like in the beginning we make it really simple for the kids because we want them to right so it really? You need to not just tell the person you love them but why because when you specifically say why it goes deeper you know. It's just not the Cliche I love you but when you hear why and then you want to celebrate their gifts and talents you wanNA recognize Any celebrations in their life and of course as we got older we expanded that. So Ah Chris. Reflecting on the past year of this person's life were on their birthday. And you know everybody walks through a dark time trial a difficulty and we write about that in the letter like Geez. Jonathan I remember when you were going through that difficult relationship and the way that you handle bit really made us proud of you. You showed a lot of kindness and compassion and so we actually recognize encourage. The person helping walk through difficult times as well. That's really nice to hear. I think a struggle that a lot of families go through not just with something like this but milestones for any of their children is. When do we start you know? When do we put him on a bike? When do we teach them how to do this? When would you say is a good time to get your children to start being engaged in this? When we started the letter read. Our children were five and seven while and then we had an remind you that the letters were short but they were learning how to communicate and we had our third child when he turned five. We would always do this moment of re writing letters and reading the letters at our dining room table so he grew up here in his father received letters his mother his brother and sister so when he turned five he said. I WANNA DO LETTERS. I want in and so he actually turned from the Observer to the writer so he started as early as five and I believe the power in at read is the consistency like we chose birthdays. And so we know every birthday we're gonNA gather and have letters and of course being a mother and a father. We've added the mother and father's day letter in there too. Oh of course you have to make sure that you've got a little extra recognition for all the hard work you do for raising your children It's the best gift. Jerry Seib really love those letters absolutely so I think like anybody else. Not all of our lives are rainbows and lollipops. Right kind of goes through a hard time and sometimes that hard time is reflected onto our family. How can the letter be used as a catalyst for accomplishing forgiveness? Or even reconciling some things in the past one of the best ways that I think he can open up. The line of Communications is through the power of a letter. I would think that you would agree with me read. Don't you feel that when a relationship is broken? One of the most difficult things is to be able to come back and talk face to face because there's so much hurt and there's so much wounding and you still wind up fighting and you don't reconcile but I feel when you can write in a letter. What you like about that person. What you love about that person that you've missed the relationship that you're sorry that they disagreed you know. Can we start again? I believe you can maybe crack a door open. That has been slammed shut for years and that could be the beginning of the communication. Because it's a safe place to see if you can open that door again and we have a great story with our children. They were seven and five at the time at that time. We were doing Christmas letters as well. And you know how children are they. Can they argue? They fight and they wrote their letters and nobody knows what's written in the letter to you. Read it and my daughter wrote a letter to her brother saying that she was so sorry that he was mean to her and he she wished that he could be a nicer brother and my son and in his letter to his sister wrote. I know I haven't been a great brother and I know I've been hard on you. I'm really sorry. When they both read their letters. They looked at each other and they ran over and they hugged each other and Oracle. The letter gave the voice to the prop room. And so I know children can do that. I really believe adults can do that. And you know in this crisis time read. I'm really thinking hearts are being tender is D- A lot of people are klaren teen. A lot of people are thinking about really what is important in life now. This may be a great time to write that letter to that broken relationship and try to restore it absolutely. I think as many people would agree with me. A family is very important especially during these times. That's really who you're GONNA hold dear. You have close. I know I personally have been talking to my mother way more than I have before during this little walk down. I'm sure this letter can go even further pass. Your family can not absolutely you know. I believe everybody in life should receive a letter from someone so I really think if you sat down and thought about it you may have that teacher that mentor that business partner that neighbor that Fran and somebody who's impacted your life that you could just take time and write them a letter to let them know how they impacted your life. It would mean the world to them

Lulu Miller Treats Her Depression With Fish Research, Finds Fish Dont Exist

"It's the hilarious world of depression. I'm John from can come comfort. Not In the chaos itself but in the human effort to defy it to recover to overcome to navigate through Lulu Miller and I'm the CO founder of the NPR Radio Show and visit villa and a contributor there and a contributor to radio lab and do some editing. Nancy and heavyweight and I have just written my first unlikely only book called. Whitefish don't exists. We'll find out why fish don't exist in a little bit. I promise in her work. Lulu Miller has this ability to tell stories related science in a profoundly human way science gets explained but the relevance to people trying to live their life gets examined as well the listener comes to understand science and people to like people looking to treat their depression. You you tackle it with a fascination with long day taxonomic sts who fish the the tried and true Technique of archival research of obscure nineteenth century theologists. You Know Right. Yeah. There's the talking cure. The Pharmaceutical Cure and the X. Theological cure exactly exactly but let's back up the Depression Lulus been addressing through long dead fish. Experts is not a new thing goes back to growing up in Massachusetts. I think it was third grade. Maybe even second grade I had to start seeing a therapist and then again in fifth grade. Yeah definitely definitely later on in middle school and stuff and I think I think there was just this encroaching. Worry about how cruel the world can be and kind of like a pressure like a guest just a pressured to ease it for myself and and cheer but other people and make the like the cruelty and the uncaring and the bad going away like I think that started me maybe before the depression and then maybe the Arise the fact that lake a seven year old eight year old girl is got a pretty doomed shot of that and and just this overwhelming feeling of like just not knowing how to to make the bad go away and then and then feeling exhausted and down or something anyway so it was. Yeah I think it was like I think it's privately been there for a long time and manifested in different ways. The therapy wasn't helping and she wasn't helping the therapy. For a long time I I felt like therapists. It was like an adversary like a game where it was this sick. I wanted to prove that I didn't need help. And so I would just lie to them and like say everything was fine. I mean that's the main thing that I started. Manifesting was eating stuff And there were these times in early childhood where I was like restricting and losing weight and and and so I'd have to go to see your child therapist and then I say I'm meeting and and I'm laughing at it only because it was it was so silly immediately to treat it that way because those are probably people who totally could have helped but I just wanted to like even reassured them. I was fine and trying to reassure yourself. You're fine where you're trying to believe the lies. You're saying it was so weird. I didn't some part of me didn't want people In my family to know that I needed any help like I think I think I mean basically a think that the house could be a little bit of a loud disorienting place. My oldest sister had some stuff various stuff going on with mental health and was misdiagnosed. All over the place which made it so hard for her and so hard for my parents she was there first and there was just a lot of confusion And I learned. I'm the youngest of three girls and I learned quickly that like I could make the loud and the confusion go away by just like just being gentle or delightful or simple just being A souder or pleaser like it just. It was just very quickly. I learned that like that could make some of the tears or the loud stop and and I liked that I liked it. It was selfish. Wanted the loud to stop. I wanted people to smile. You know and it worked and I knew how to do it and I think that probably the meaning I have made of it all is that yeah like. I think some part of me felt like that was too much pressure for a little girl and maybe the eating stuff was a way of actually showing adults. I needed help and I wasn't as okay as it was telling everyone. Honey okay. That's how I've made sense of it but then when I would when I would like in those early service appointments I would just you know my body was probably crying for help and my words and my brain were still smiling and laughing and reassuring that I was fine I think it just felt forbidden to be another thing that needed help in that house. Even though again. In retrospect I totally needed help. People were helping me but I started to like take that need that. Worry of of delighting like I just started taking it all out like where it wasn't even needed you know but like I'd worry about the worry about Fra like someone in class. Who seemed like a loner in a in a really gentle tender way? I'd have these patronizing now. I think they're patronizing thoughts. But like where I think if I wasn't nice to them they might die like that like I could heal them. And this. Just in retrospect is ridiculous but like I would. I would worry empathetic though too like you. Sound incredibly empathetic. Yeah but I think I think that's how I thought of it in the moment but in Russia like now as I look back I also see how like patronizing. That is in a sense like that. I that I have the key to whether this sadder anyway. I just WanNa like acknowledged that it's ridiculous. Can I ask you a therapist question here? Yeah yeah which is. Why is it important for you to Establish that it was ridiculous and patronizing? Why is that important to you now? Just because there's Why I don't know John No? I think it's important.

The predatory publishers sucking science's blood (Summer Season)

"Quake the doot of a Predator as a reporter. You get all kinds of of little suggestions. Tips complaints this. And you can't deal with them all. This one intrigued me. I had started to hear about similar complaints and sort of once. You hear enough of them the signal adds up you think. Maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing What what the clued that? That Mela rash well. I was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university and I did. Research probably starting five six years ago I I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters and I started to receive these emails. Sort of saying extremely nice. Nice things to me that basically said call for Paper Journal Editors Wanting Me To submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors in addition to that one and the emails and then generally speaking editor. I don't say very nice things about you and they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript. Will you ever tempted to meet. No no I mean I'm a clinical epidemiologist in some of these journals were lifted from soil. Science right why would somebody from soil science be asking me saying Nice things about me. They wouldn't no me from anywhere he's smells a rat. I did maybe several but that rash or several thousand read via now. Well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the Predatory Journal has become a mega industry global in reach ending ending destructive potential. In fact you're going to hear from someone who believes that the industry represents the big threat to don in the inquisition shen the US. Federal Court recently ordered one of the biggest of the company to pay up over fifty million. US dollars only make. International headquartered voted in Hyderabad in India but also operating in the US climbed the publish hundreds of medical journals found to employ deceptive business practices essentially entrapping fantasy to offer published in the Journal or participate in conferences. The Doug the ruling bye-bye predatory publishes well. Let's see if Any of that money actually moves anywhere. It's not clear with a the group will cough up that fifty million dollars which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a period. All whether we'll appeal we tend to leave leaked of question to its representative yet to receive a reply but it is nice. Clear message to all the Sake Journal. Publishers of the world that they're being watched watched and there could be consequences. Joan Bohannon thought journalists and now director to add an artificial intelligence data in San Fran called primer. They didn't biscuit slipping under the radar. And using American Canadian European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from a complicit gains so this court ruling basically makes that extremely inconvenient to do now. John was to present evidence in the kite board again. Anthem IQ Group by the Federal Trade Commission. Because he'd had an unusually Hansa with the publisher so all mix was one of hundreds of publishers offers that I tested in sting operation. I wrote some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. They have been negative kind of legendary inside the back in two thousand twelve John Reporting for the general died and the Expression Predatory Journal Common News. there was a guy named Geoffrey Yu who was probably the only person around making in a big public. Stink about this and trying to actually Shine a light on it. It was very very bold effort. He had something called feels list or at least it became known as beal's lest my name is Jeffrey Bill. And I'm a retired academic librarian from University of Colorado Denver. But make the deal. Beal Blackley fame and a climb and karate he was the first to coin. The Phrase Predatory Journal the Journal. Publishers hated being malysz because it it stigmatizes them in meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing but in just the way they operate in general and they would use the heckler's actors veto. They would call the library director and complain about me and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list so that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action including think it was is in twenty twelve international threatened to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat. What I learned from it is that you can basically basically pay an attorney? Five hundred dollars all right a threatening letter so they they did that but they never followed through with. It was never introduced in any court consequences consequences. Jeffrey of running that black leaked were immense. And I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there are at least eight thousand predatory journals it is just one publisher of many but Jeffrey Bill provocatively cold. The the evil empire of Predatory Publishing I stand Dan by that statement and what they do is they really hurt a lot of people. You know the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith but oh mix international has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers they have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. Usually one word off enough to confuse people that it might be the respected journal in the `field they will at People's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field and they'll use their identity to promote the journal and when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it they just leave it there because they're operating operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it. And they especially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who don't speak English as their first language. It's not just dont. As from developing countries that a toggle though that even acknowledged problem clinical epidemiologist. David moas taste the Croats at reaching into some of America's most delayed institutions including Harvard in the analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand thousand articles published in Predator journals. We found that actually the most frequent corresponding authors were from what we would call first world countries countries with lots of money and lots of resources that is troubling very troubling because it suggests that at these institutions authors may not Be Aware of predatory journals and are we need to obviously ramp up some educational activities. People think that they're sending the manuscript to a legitimate respected journal. When it's really just a phony dough mix international journal and then they quickly accept the paper without any peer review and then send them an invoice and that point the authors realized that something is wrong because There was really no peer reviewed done yet papers accepted and they have this two thousand dollars invoice that comes through email and the olmecs demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realized that they've been duped. But then omits says says you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay US withdrawal fee. An often than olmecs will publish the article quickly and one of their journals and then and they can't submit it anywhere else. Because that would be duplicate submission it would be publishing the same article twice. which is something not supposed to do that? Nothing about Predatory Street Journal devoted to pose to happening time as John Bohannon Govett when he hit them. Attest yes yeah so I just wanted some data. It's frustrating to have such an enticing story of you know bad actors that potentially raking in millions of ill-gotten dollars dollars and not get some data to find out if it's true. We stay in molecular biology from offered. Clave he plotted experiment which was pretty straightforward. And the idea in a nutshell is if I submit a really and I mean truly bad scientific paper to your journal final and you accept it with no sign of any peer review and you asked me for money then you're you're a fake journal Publisher Sharma sure. Yeah John Wanted to take to how easy it was to get published in a predatory journal it can usually take many months used even to get a pipe into a reputable contact general and even then it's not a given that partly because of what's called Peer Review essential to the conduct protest. You Do Fairmont you. You brought it up reporting your results. Submit it to a journal and then it pulled destroyed by a bunch of other daunting

Plan to Cut U.S. Troops in West Africa Draws Criticism From Europe

"Look look first at NATO the the actual military chiefs of rich Jew shortly to convene in Brussels the United States brost hat chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley has burned one interesting acting item on the agenda in advance prefiguring a potential drawdown of American forces in West Africa. This is extremely likely to prompt and unenthused response from France in particular which is extensively deployed a theater which it believes not without reason is a key frontline in the ongoing global campaign against Islamist extremism. Mary what's what's going on here. Won't use the United States Losing interest abruptly in West Africa. Well I think there are two reasons. one of them is because president trump is specially I think The top brass in American intelligence. They are very fixed on what they see As the future threat coming from China and that they are increasingly concentrating their resources looking in that direction the other thing and is that trump came to office and this is often forgotten Saying that he wanted to stop American engagement in in foreign wars. And this I think was one of the one of the reasons why he was elected. It was very popular policy For a lot of Americans and it remains so but right through his time as president trump has faced quite a lot of opposition from the top brass about cutting back on Americans abroad have been various attempts. He tried to pull Americans out of Afghanistan. The top brass objected. He tried to pull Americans out of Syria. Immediate media outcry from all the allies and saying he was betraying the Kurds. He tried to pull out of Iraq. Similar things West Africa could have basinas. Gene is a sort of slightly soft touch because the only people he's going to offend particularly by that again to be the French as we've seen well on the subject of the French being offended Jonathan they going to be aren't they and not without reason France already has four and a half thousand troops deployed in West Africa. There's two one hundred twenty more due to go shortly And it's not like they've been doing nothing night. They have found somebody to fight once they got there. Oh Yes yes. They've been very active. There and suffered suffered quite a few casualties as part of that. But also this fits for the Frans into a broader attempt by president. Emmanuel McCall to reset reset France's relationship with its former colonies in Africa lens going ahead on the economic front and on other fronts And and I think the question here is how much France wants to take responsibility for this region of the world how much it sees this. Moore's wars an international global Issue which the. US should continue to be involved with Mary. You made the accurate point. The trump's big pitch in two thousand sixteen was that he would bring troops home that America would not engage itself in pointless ridiculous interminable wars overseas etc.. He he probably does understand that the best pitchy can make this. November Is along the same lines. He he walked a very narrow path. Victory in two thousand sixteen but if he can go back the American people in two thousand twenty and say the economy's all right. I haven't started any stupid. That's probably his best shot. That being the case Do we wonder how nervous other NATO military chiefs are going to be the prospect of trump actually. Winning this thing is then possible that the arrest of NATO really has to stop thinking about the United States as the cornerstone of the alliance. Well I think that quite a lot of NATO but especially in the European Union That sense has really been strengthening. Ever since trump came to office there was quite a lot of diffidence Shall we say through the campaign. When trump seemed to cast aspersions on the future of NATO suggesting that it wasn't necessarily in US interest to Continue to be in NATO And you saw the Russians from that right across Europe but especially interestingly in Britain of course but also in eastern Central Europe where they see the United States and NATO in particular the protector. The A big protector of their security against Russia. Now it seems to me talk though Trump seemed to have been brought round a bit Um about the sort of survivability and relevance of NATO nonetheless that Trepidation in Europe remains and we've seen seen just in the last few days With a paper I think originating in the British military Where they say the new British government? When it does it's it's promised Security and defence review has got to look ahead to a time when the United States may and not be Engaged as it is in Europe and when the UK will have to look to being more autonomous in defense security terms and that is a complete rethink For All the British military your finds itself in classically horns Komo whatever cliche One canoes there on the one hand they want the United States to remain Invoke very very involved in NATO and if one is on his to be the main pair in NATO and supplier of troops And so on but at the same time particularly with trump in the White House. They don't want America to dominate dominate. When NATO is going so you get this whole debate about where is NATO? After the end of the Cold War Matt calls from about it being brain dead and having to rethink its future. Sure and so on. But you're has first of all to decide what role it sees for the United States and whether that allies with what trump things a couple. Let's move on now to the rare problem of what a retired. Pope should do with his time. Pope's usually leave the office of course only when recalled all to barracks by the omnipotent overlord but benedict the sixteenth bucked. This tradition in two thousand and thirteen when he handed in the big hat voluntarily since then benedict addict has mostly maintained inappropriate silence but he broke it a few weeks back to speak up in defense of priestly. Celibacy apparently concerned by reports that his successor Pope Francis Francis favored the church taking a more relaxed attitude. Will it now appears that Benedikt is walking it back. His name will be removed from future editions of the book in which he made his feelings known Mary. First of all It's obviously not possible to know the mind of a retired Pope Benedict the sixteenth sixteenth. But why would he be assuming that this point that anybody cares what he thinks. Well I think because he still has the rank this extraordinary sort of rank of Pope Emeritus America's extraordinary thing. I'm opposed America's you think he keeps on these credit card. Well that doesn't the hotel upgrade but by keeping the title even emeritus That puts tim effectively on a par with the current pope And I think that was always going to create difficulties and it's probably remarkable really that we haven't seen gene similar difficulties until now But I think that's also when you when you look at the two characters when you look at Pope Benedict as being What appeared a very reticent very theologically based very traditional minded German pope hope? And you look at Pope Francis who's latin-american And this in fact is where this whole troubles risen. Because he's talking about parts of the Amazon Wurzburg ver-very difficult priests. This argument is being going on for quite a long time as to whether if lifted the celibacy requirement. Then maybe it would be easier to find priests for those very remote remote areas But it does seem to me that in terms of character as well as in terms of everything else you're looking at two very different people and also a church which house has still a very strong conservative. Whatever the president pope says tries to do has a very very conservative lobby Maybe majority he I don't know and which you know finds it useful to appeal to the power of the Pope Emeritus. Jonathan an ice will confess to our listeners that I am not myself in especially accomplished a Catholic theologian. But you think I am. I'm hoping you know more about about this than I do. Just benedict the sixteenth quoted views on the issue in question itself. He says it doesn't seem possible to realize both vocations by which he meant the priesthood and marriage simultaneously. Now other married people in my experience have jobs boy. Is this one any different because When you become? I'm a priest as I understand it celibacy is part of your Decision to remove yourself from the material every every day human world and become somebody somewhat different Maria. I would like to expand this conundrum to the more general principle. Here which is which is what happens happens when people leave high office once you should that be the end of it once you are off the stage as it were should you therefore just shut up. Well I think One of the reasons may be the reason Currently for the continued existence of the House of Lords in the UK. is exactly I'm going to give a sort of position and role For people who have I think the current terminology is stepped back from public life But they can also make trouble even when they're in the Lord's even in what is regarded as subordinate position. vis-a-vis the comments I mean. We saw That Margaret Thatcher Entre gave her successor. John Major very hard time when he was in office And it's been I think it's quite difficult for people who've been to that extent engaged engaged on the front line Actually to say nothing when they see or seems to them that they're successor is behaving behaving such a foolish way when you suddenly become used to that and when you're still relatively young I mean that's the one has a number of quite young a young presidents prime ministers and so on retiring. Tony Blair Bill Clinton others who I think will find it very difficult just to say ongoing off to rotate long walks in the countryside. And say nothing I mean I. I'm sympathetic to that to an extent because it must be the heck of it adjustment from having the sort of the world hang. Hang on your every word to suddenly you know. Once you've sort of signed a piece of paper handed off nobody caring anymore but is there Jonathan away that you can do you. I guess constructive backseat driving. I mean I've just come back from Australia. Where our current Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been weathering? The bushfire crosses to a chorus of criticism. Some of it from one of his predecessors Kevin Rudd who broke with the protocol of differential respect and sank the Bhuttan with what unmistakably like relish the way that you can actually be helpful as a former officeholder. Yes I mean you can bring the wealth experience that you've had and good judgement judgement etcetera etcetera To to bear if your success was wanted of course they may not want they may not want somebody who was there and was perhaps more successful than them sitting on their shoulder the whole time so. It's very very difficult situation. I think you'd have a lot of ex-leader pitas find their way into leading a foundation for good works and so on but almost inevitably they get caught up in in what they used to do. I mean I think one of the one of the strongest conventions about not interfering not even commenting on your successor was in the United States. where past presidents were not not supposed supposed to say a word about their successor? But that's been broken barrack Obama who has been quite voluble On the subject of what he seizes uses the errors of Donald Trump's ways and on the one hand you know that's a lot of us who would say well you know good on him quite right for doing that on the other hand. I I think there's a very a very sensible place for this convention that says actually you should find something else to do or just imagine. Donald Trump defeated in November. I don't think he'll go silent silent.

"Having a dialogue about it because this dialogue is revolutionary and I hope you guys realize they would like to open up this dialogue for our audience question. Disseminate this information to the medical professionals there are articles and we also. This is a common Topic that we have at our national conferences. It's a it's a big issue and we do have In fact we've had several national conferences just on this particular topic but it. It's a it but remember we're reaching the able of the specialist. Is the other people out there that they may never get you all patients with these symptoms. Get to an epilepsy specialist. But there there is a lot written about. There's books on it. Maybe maybe go one more question way back there for a completely different angle. I have a question about the beautiful gender bias. I'd just been on the stage which I think is fantastic off. We're talking with experts artists who are old women and I think that's a CJ. We should all curious. The EXPERTS IS THEIR GENDER BIAS. In this field at is are you is there is there a preponderance of this affliction in women and girls as opposed to minute boys excellent though that could be desegregated that will? I don't think the exactly the answer. There is a perception that this problem is more prevalent in women but there is something we call gender differences in coming in in basically letting people know what your problem is or or or or leading the problem out so as experienced all kinds of somatic symptoms earlier than men in their twenties and thirties. Wants a mini heats the sixties seventies. Maybe fifties all says Asian problems. Come on and because there is a gender difference in kind of a living problems out. It's very hard to know the precise answer what they perceive answers that they are more common in women. How truthful these is for future to tell because as the new generations come up the gender differences are less so the younger men may decide to so much cise earlier and this kind of a gap me. Now vote just worry about the. Ptsd minute boys who are coming from the Catholic Church. Is this coming into your work? So I can speak a little bit about in terms of prevalence rates of child sexual abuse. Typically the the rates are one in four women and one in six Voisey's and so there's an issue with under reporting and there's an issue with cultural issues that prevent people feel for from feeling comfortable disclosing right so it's hard to say and I think there's a lot of cultural variables that prevent men from disclosing their sexual abuse and from seeking treatment. I think it's a big issue. And there's a great website called one in six dot. Org that speaks to this specifically that I think is really important. Unfortunately this is just the start of a conversation. We will continue outside in the lobby. And you'll have an opportunity to ask questions if you didn't have that opportunity now and you can also visit the brain trauma brain project website and send your questions to there as well but you have some other announcements to make. Oh I don't know if it's an announcement but thank you. My name is Marissa Cavani and I'm an artist as well as an advocate. I'm the founder and CEO of an organization called healing tree stands for Healing Trauma. Resources Education and empowerment. So I'm sure that a lot of you watching tonight has been going. What do we do about this and and sort of? Where do we go from here? Because this is a huge issue so our mission is to transform how society responds to abuse and interpersonal trauma. I chew was diagnosed with psychogenic non athletic seizures after some trauma and had a complex post traumatic stress disorder. I made a recovery. After having somatic experiencing amd are other types of trauma focused treatment. Modalities and I thought well you know. I looked around and I looked at all of these. People do also had symptoms related to some sort of trauma and they were not being diagnosed with trauma they were being told. They had a brain chemistry problem. There are being told they had genetic issue that they would always be this way. Here's your medicine cope with for the rest of your life and I thought that was wrong and there are a lot of people who agreed with me in the trauma field and that field was not integrated with mental health and medicine. Which is what we're talking about tonight and so I just wanted to volunteer with an Orange. Us doing something about it. I couldn't find one so I started one so we have some resources. So if you're interested in learning more of this we have We WanNA connect survivors and their loved ones with resources necessary for healing rather than hoping so there are lists of articles tons of articles about all sorts of abuse through a trauma. Focus Lens and all sorts of physical and mental problems through a trauma. Focus Lens there's videos. There's a recommended reading list. There's an approved care network where we can hook people off with therapist to get it. And then there's Education. We give us to doctors to help them understand. You know more about the the trauma side and then there's the arts the empowerment pieces really art so excited to be tonight because what better way to kind of change society's response to something then topping the arts so awesome brochures if anybody wants to connect and you know just if your interest is piqued or somebody else's is needing help. Hopefully we can point you in the right direction and also to continue the work that has been started here. Donations will gladly be accepted.

"Having and how she'd had this form of therapy that had been helpful to and I was in the middle of getting ready to put on my twenty six annual conference for neurologist in and nurses and people on the front line of Kiribati. Lipsey and one of the problems in epilepsy is that we often have to diagnose people with non epileptic seizures that look just like seizures but are coming from underlying the conflict in minicamps. It's people who have been abused as children. And in fact about fifty percent of the patients on our monitoring you to turn out to have not have believed exceed yours and I feel often. We don't do a very good job in getting them the help they need for many reasons but lack of resources lack of insurance covering those kind of therapies. It's a problem so when Dale and told me about this a wounded for the people that I follow in my conferences I wanted. I knew they needed to know about this so I asked her and I asked her with his tation. Because it's a very personal thing. It's not nice to ask people those things but I really wanted to help my people and so I said Elliot. Would you come and be willing to speak about your experience? And she said I'll think about it in three days later. She called me and she said I sat down and wrote this up as a reading in if I could get some Broadway actresses to come to your meeting in Houston to speak to do to perform this when that work as oh yeah. I'll take me interested and I always have very different things in my meetings as as some of you will. It is that I think people need to know about the whole spectrum. You know I'm trained as a psychiatric social worker and in my fifty years of career. I've spent most of my life actually looking at at abuse in trying to help people who've been abused and witnessing the incredible impact this has on individual on a family on a society. It is incredible. Impact physically biologically socially psychologically and finally in fact. I want said one of our first conferences. We had on non-olympic advance. I said if society ever figures out the cost of abuse. They'll go after that just like they do cigarette smoking man. And that's a good start. Thank you Jane Dr Jane. Yes some Dr Jane and Dale and really allowed this to happen. Actually well let me start from my background. Trained psychoanalysis and hypnotherapy and somehow stumbled upon somatic experiencing and the idea about bringing in the body and having people aware of their experiences. Nessin sations and how just bringing awareness to what you experience changes things so imagine you could feel really horrible. But did you just be present without reacting and just notice what you're experiencing just follow it? It helps titrate really helps the body able to restore and the brain to recalibrate anyway so dale and stumbled into my office because she knew that. I was interested and work with body mine. That's about it and she was very responsive remarkable client because as as the play demonstrates she was so determined and of course people are determined but what she did. That often people don't do is that she would push people often get afraid of these. Gut wrenching heartbreaking responses mean. That's what trauma is that. You have such experiences that the order nommik nervous system shuts down PARV brain shuts down. Because you're overwhelmed. And the idea about working with the body and touching the body in certain ways is because you need a physiology to support feeling and so she was very interested but as I said she was so determined and she wanted the table usually takes a little bit long for people to really feel safe and her body shaking out trauma and there was trust that we developed. But the body knows when you're free to be able to absorb getting caught now in my sight about what happened so that's my experience with Dale. And she was remarkable. And that's how the project Tom read year. So let's continue along that line. I'm Dr Marie Collier. I'm an epilepsy. Tallest neurologist also trained in integrative medicine I actually just completed a a yoga teacher certification getting the issues out of tissues and I flew in from Grand Junction Colorado. I run an epilepsy program there in a rural community and in a rural communities. We don't have a lot of the mental health support that we have in in larger cities. And so you see a lot more Samat Ization though I see a lot of non epileptic seizures and I met de Lan in Houston three packs program actually last year. I spoke with him last year. I spoke at the Workforce Program on the role of integrative medicine in epilepsy. Patients with epileptic seizures also have non epileptic seizures. And so one of the things I WANNA do not only help my patients but also help my colleagues. I'll be forthcoming here. And give full disclosure. My biggest obstacle was. I'm fine right going to help all these other people that are sick. I'm fine and and so one of the things that Yoga and integrative medicine helped me discover was how to help myself about one million patients. A year are losing their doctor to suicide and if doctors can't hill themselves how can they help and he'll patients and it's it's tragic because when you when you think about medical school residency training nowhere. No one ever said Hey. Why don't you work on your own issues before you go and put your hands on another patient and try and help them with theirs? So you end up with doctors like Dr Finger. Heaven forbid so. I'm here to support Dale. And I went up to her after the program and said where do you want my statement? Or do you want me to put in my testimonial. And she was I right on the front of our website and it is a catalyst for change the catalyst to heal our disease care system and we're going to help each other and it's not like I'm the doctor and you're the patients we all up need healing as a community and so I'm here to be a part of that and I'm honored and thank you all my name is Dr Bianca Hardin. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and somatic experiencing practitioner. I'm very big into healer healed. I heal thyself. And it's really important that we think about the impact of the work that it has on us and so I'm a big believer not as well I've been working with child. Sexual Abuse in my clinical practice for over twenty years and I'm very passionate about preventing child sexual abuse about shining a light on sexual abuse sexual assault giving voice to people's stories and narratives and there's a conspiracy of silence that happens where people are silenced. And this is. Why is a part of this project because this is giving voice and this is very meaningful to me? So I've been doing the work and something was missing. And it was the wisdom of the body so I came across some attic experiencing and I it changed me. It rewired me. It changed my work and I've seen it do amazing things for the clients that I'm working with last fall. I got an email to be invited to be on this panel. I looked at the email and I said how can this be possible that I could be a part of this amazing project? Of course I'm coming. Yes yes and yes and then I sat watching it the first time and then I sat on the panel and I thought this is what I meant to do this. This work is so important. I feel like really emotional but it was so moving. So amazing and daily onset. I think we're going to go to New York to do this. Do you WANNA come. And I'm like yes. Of course I'm coming. And so the performance is riveting. The panel is amazing. You all are bearing witness to something very important and I'm just really honored to be here and I'm honored that you all are here as well and I'm so happy to be a part of daily journey and I'm just a long ride and so happy to be here so thank you so much thank you. Yes Oh my name is Paler Africa. I'm an epileptic. Colleges are recently moved from University of Utah to Cornell and got involved with. This project is my former fellow.

"Here in New York City along with the actress singer Songwriter then basically born and raised in the Philadelphia area along with Los Angeles Tyson and New York. So I'd like to say I grew up in and Philly Los Angeles New York and it's also spent my childhood years. Well true in Philadelphia Area and Los Angeles where I was trained at the conservatory. That's where I got my acting training. Which really led into my writing training as well when I moved to New York because it was very thorough at this fellow either conservatory and I that that experience typically changed my life I had. I went from sports. My College here is a business background. I have a finance degree but it was really never something. I really actively pursued or wanted to. I just didn't really know how to pursue fear until I just said I wanted to do it. And there's a long story behind that but when I moved to Los Angeles we're straying at the spill Adler it was a monumental change in my life because the very first time I was really exposed to the arts more so than I ever have been before I went to at that time. Twelve years of Catholic schools. And if this really wasn't a lot of that kind of arts in schools and even in high school years that I recall maybe some that we're such a sports oriented family that I really didn't know how to go about pursuing theater necessarily until I became a little bit exposed to my college years outside of the university setting so when I was trained in La. I was exposed really the great plays and playwrights of all time from Eugene meal to August Wilson and we can go on them on sets and shepherd Tennessee Williams and I was really breaking down those plays and acting out. It was a huge influence on the in in my life when I moved to New York after spending several years in Los Angeles really when I started to actively right and haven't stopped since and that's been nearly twenty years I've been here your mission for your show. I Know WanNa talk a lot about how that influence led me into teaching and other areas of arts and education and along with writing the plays actively pursuing acting career in music. I have had the advantage and a really distinct opportunity to work with some a lot of really great schools here in the city Abraham Lincoln High School I taught at play writing acting For a couple of years Wagner high school and all that I got a certificate to arts and education at Manhattan College and I know from that experience after all the things I was able to learn and experience in writing profession while still being active in pursuing it my myself. I had the opportunity to teach play writing. Acting students have have them write their own place really giving them a thorough training in the pond. I was at those schools. Expose them to just great place that I was exposed to. It happened right in cereal and coming from their own backgrounds and how that influence them it is wants them eventually because I think for you. Many of them for the very first time didn't know possibly that they had the ability to write. Or how do I go about writing a feeling that I have inside me whether it's a song or poem or play or Scream? I I never really forced in this more China ideas and thoughts and feelings down on the page and then trying to create something totally new. That has never been there before intentionally acted out. I also had subsequent opportunities to teach at various other places around the country because my play on the day of the days that followed which was about nine eleven was picked up at various high schools and grade schools and colleges. Here's your and I was able to be flown out to some of these areas. Teach creative playwright courses and a couple of colleges here and they're being guest lecturer and certain times it was just so that's as much of my background or some of it anyway in in some of the arts and education experience that. I've had if you touch one person. I feel as the way I was touched by studying where I studied specifically in late fell out in. La You don't know where what that will lead to. I mean I've bumped in my acting teacher air ten or so years later. Deborah chemists remain. I said Deborah changed my life. You don't realize how much you changed my life consensus huge profound way and so I didn't smoke there all day long in two years. You know then you don't light goes on and suddenly bumped into somebody who is at such a significant influence in your life. Then you had. The opportunity thanked him as she'd actually coming from. I play the violin coming up weekend. Wonderful tough talk about this latest project. That's fifty nine hundred fifty nine. Yes exactly we are. Incre- is right now. We started September seventh show opens October fourteenth. And it's violinist and the end of the play and it is directed by Joe District is a wonderful director. And what a cast that. I have been able to work with Robert lupone. Who was up for the Tony Award for Chorus Line Several years back keep Brad? Perry and I saw Lounge out the cast and they play Gio and bobby and Terry respectively. The and I need to say as well. It said a director's company and shadow catcher entertainment production along with fifty nine fifty nine which is an awesome. Then you know so far. We've had nearly full houses for reviews and the response of play has been absolutely outstanding. I'm very very very very fortunate. And blessed working with such a great group of people all the way around. It's been an experience really Seattle. Weekly my life so far. It's a wonderful wonderful time. And the fact that the play's been so well received it's been very very rewarding to have that opportunity. I'll give you a brief synopsis of the play. And I just actually happened here. So it's when Bobby Terry and Geo two hapless brothers and a world weary Taylor fight a seventeen ten stradivarius violin. We're four million dollars in the backseat of New York. City calf looks like opportunity to change their fortunes landed in their laps. Shot after dreams however will mean some quick decisions testing loyalty and family ties irrevokable consequences. So there's a lot of humor in of all but there's a lot of drama involve and that kind of balancing act. It is really a very very funny. That very dramatic and very meaningful to the audience as well to me and everybody's just involved with it so I'm helping your audience and the odd king conceal show about the violin and I made today and I we want before I send you off on your way. Where did this inspiration for this play? Well I know you awesome. I play a homeless and how we got that we talked about that too and I sort of get this question. A fair amount in regards to what some of the influences are. All I can say on a broader scale is that I write every single day. I feel like I have been given a gift to write. I don't take that get for granted at all very very hard and writing. Something down every single. That often don't know where a lot of stories come from the she's they're planning writing logging that I that I that I have. I'll hear things see things fall of company and I log those things and once. I really decide to start writing. I'm ready to smuggling reading something new. I have all these things sort of popping out at me because able to create lobbies these influences in these little sees that I call them and then from there you. It is just sort of back and forth conversation that I have. I don't know who some of the people are. I don't know many times. They are at all well. What the circumstances are pretty pretty good writing strong dialogue so the going back and forth with me as much as often accused nights going back a call and Response. I go back and forth writing and conversation all of a sudden nine cents sometimes. Like wow okay now. That's what the stories about okay or that. All that from this person might be and then you just start layer it in the majority of my material. I never set out writing at all and the only times. I really try to really get something off my chest where I had I need to write about. This was with on the day. Today's followed which is the nine eleven play and I needed to put that down a lot of people friends of mine who actors. Were asking me Danny whether you're going to write about what it was when you're going to get some and that frustration for me of not being able to sort of tell anything about it. I didn't know that. The chain influence of the starting point of that play actors asking a playwright in dark stage for the words against the we need to say something experience and he doesn't know how to do it. And that actually became the catalyst for for for that play. The other one was recently my play. How take life in Chennai McClintock? My younger brother passed away a couple of years ago from cancer. Those stories were really really something that I I wanted that whereas setups try to write something about those subjects direct material including violin and many many mills homeless. How he got way. I can't really say that. Was John. Set out and try to write a story about this. They just Germany. After planting the seeds starts to evolve. And that's that's kind of what happened with that play and I left. What would you say? This week is the national acknowledgement of the arts and education. Week and to close. What would you say to those people who see the arts as an Amenity as an extra a business degree in finance and I also have a huge influence in arts and arts education? There is no difference in the amount of influence that that this can have in.

"Can you live without it and you live your life without it and if you can't then there is your answer and if you hesitate in the least bit and I'm saying artist. Naturally I was a theater teacher. But I'm talking all kinds of artists from photographers to musicians to Graphic artists to acting to film work. Whatever it is if you cannot if you can't see yourself as doing anything else then you have your answer and if you do than you need to look at another option. I was an English teacher as well. And because my background was in Educational Theatre I always incorporated drama strategies into the way that I taught literature which was always hands on and so for example I was teaching Tequila Mockingbird Harper laid to A tenth grade English classes and the way that I would introduce a book would to allow the students to get excited about wanting to read it so that when I assigned so many chapters to read. Oftentimes students would finish reading the whole book. And that's what you WANNA do. You WanNa get kids excited about reading about why literature impacts our lives and so the first day they walked in when I was going to introduce Mockingbird and I had a line of different shoes on the floor and at that point they knew you know what is What stopped to mcgarry up to here? They they were like okay. What does she go to do today? And so I said I'd like you to you know step inside the shoes and I had them speak based on the type of shoes that we had here and we explored you know what it was about the shoes that gave them clues about who might personify those shoes. And I said when you walk in somebody else's shoes you have the opportunity to Investigate who are they and why they behave that way and I said in Harper Lee's book One of the main characters atticus finch says to one of his children before you judge anybody to crawl around on their skin and walk in their shoes before you make any judgments my point is that the arts using a device like that is not necessarily an end result many people think of pursuing the arts as if it was putting on a play or putting on a performance or finishing a canvas that is and an outcome of the arts but as a teacher. It's the process. It's the exploration. It's the critical thinking that is involved to allow students to think of their interpretation of their world. And thereby become sensitized to people who might be different than them and so through. I online with France. It's my goal to raise awareness of. How vitally important the arts are and I think that through this program we the audience and I can provide an opportunity to connect the dots as it were for people who didn't realize that the arts play such a large role in our culture One of Practical ways that I can have this happen is I created a campaign called the first one hundred stories and what happened was I was reading this book by Chris. Clear called little BS and I won't spoil it for you. I do highly recommend reading at because in the book. It's about a journalist who crosses path with a young woman in a foreign country Who was raped. And she wants to tell her story and the young woman says to her would people ever lesson to May and to my story and she said it begins with your story with one story and that one story can become a hundred stories and so that inspired me to consider how I can raise awareness of the arts by reaching out through my blog. I online with Fran and asking people to submit One hundred stories My goal is to collect the one hundred stories because Americans for the arts which is an organization that promotes awareness of of the importance of the arts and are in the United States and all over and they were saying how they needed stories to support their mission. And I thought HM. This is practical. Let's do this. And so I created this blog and this first one hundred stories and coincidentally I started it The National Arts Education Week which started Was approved in two thousand ten by Congress that this would be celebrated the first week of September. And so I put the call out and before you know it who is my first testimonial but a former student of mine eighty. Falco and maybe through my podcast. I can Reach that one hundred goal and so to have all of these stories from all of these people and that was what struck me. Is that I online with Fran is about featuring featuring ordinary people who do extraordinary things and the arts and there are people out there doing all of this amazing work in all of these avenues and people don't know about it they don't know about it and I have to tell them. I want to know about this. What I see with this podcast. I seek three things. The first thing is I want to hear from people out there and I know you're out there so get in touch with Fran and tell me your story. Tell me all your experience with the arts. The second thing is there are people out there who are doing amazing things. I'm from New York. And we had the New York City Roundtable which is comprised of a couple of hundred arts and education organizations in New York City and they are doing amazing work with young people out there. I'm most familiar with the creative arts team. They just it's just amazing work. That's being out there. So my second goal is to have them come in as my guest and share with our audience about the work that's being done and how they are transforming young people's lives through their program. The third facet of my PA- my objective. Here as I outlined with France is I want people to keep coming back. I want them to say. Oh what's going to be up to next and there's going to be a mystery. Guest mystery celebrity guests and we have one here today. That I'm very excited. Agreed to Fini- into his busy schedule. But we're going to talk to our guest quite soon aren't we?.

"Featuring ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the arts a little background about who I am and what I've done. I was an English and theater teacher for thirty years at northport school district on Long Island New York and then from there I got PhD Educational Theater at Nyu. Where I did some adjunct work with them and their student teaching program for Developing People in the Educational Theatre Program and then my doctoral work which was on the young playwrights festival got me the position as director of instruction for Stevenson Hines Young Playwrights Inc and that was a dream job because I not only got to work in the classroom teachers but also professional playwrights and teaching play writing and teaching and working with all these amazing young people and Talented people until two thousand eleven one funding to the arts were cut and so was my job so I decided to audition and work as a working actor and then became angry because I knew that the arts were a very important part of our culture and I started to blog one of the things that I felt very strongly about as an English teacher and as a theater teacher is that you know you could follow. The professional path was always an option and parents would come up to me and say oh you know should my son daughter pursue this and the kids would even ask me. Is this something that that I should pursue and I always answered their question with a question.
