Schools and COVID-19

"We last checked it on. Schools and cova nineteen on the podcasts. Anyway in july at that point we had some information about spread. This was based on schools. Stayed open throughout spring and those that didn't now in the fall term and a second wave. What do we know staff writer. Jennifer cousin frankel and contributing correspondent gretchen. Vogel have an update in this week's issue. Hi jennifer hi. Thanks for having me sure. It's really great to see this article. Come out. I feel like we have not a lot of information about schools and a lot of people making a lot of different. Decisions is now a good time to do this. Follow up story now is a good time and one reason for that is that many more schools have opened than opened in the spring and we have schools now open in areas with high transmission which is different. It offered us an opportunity to really learn about what's happening in those schools. How are they coping. And what are researchers trying to learn from them. What do you think are the biggest changes since your last piece on this. What we know a lot more about now than we did. Then i would say there are certain things that we strongly suspected then that have been reinforced. One is thankfully most kids really do not get very sick from covid. Nineteen there are exceptions. But in general they don't so that is very good news and that has truly held up over the months another. Is that when we think about schools in a one of the big concerns outbreaks in schools the spread of virus through a school. And while we're still really trying to learn about that. I would say that right now. Outbreaks in schools appear to be less common than they had been initially feared to be. So that's another thing. That we i think have have learned especially in high transmission areas. We do know that kids are not getting very very sick if they do. Contract corona virus. But do we know if they're transmitting it to each other. You know at the same rate as adult would or to to their teachers in their classroom or to their families at home that has been a really big question since the start of this pandemic. how much of a vector or kids are they are. They catching the virus to the same degree. Even if they're not getting really sick and if they do get infected are they transmitting it to the same degree and i would say you know. We still really don't know the answer to that. I think there have been a number of studies that suggest that younger kids in particular kids under about ten. And it's not like we're talking about a clear cut off. It's sort of a gradient. But that's roughly where people put the line so kids under ten studies have shown up less likely to get infected and potentially transmit the virus but then there are other studies that do not show this and that show the younger kids are just as likely to be infected and to transmit stars cova too so i would say honestly we really don't know and there are strong feelings on both sides. Here's some people really think that younger kids are less likely to transmit and others to say we truly do not know that yet so i feel like the jury is still out on that one. You break your story out into some big questions. That people have whenever they think about corona virus schools and so i just wanted to take those one time and the first one is. Are we going to see outbreaks at schools. We put that question first because it's on so many people's minds parents sending their kids to school people working in schools communities as a whole. How common are these outbreaks in schools. That is such a big question. I would say two things i would say. The data do appear to be hopeful. There have been some studies and some data gathering that underscore that one example we found was in north carolina where there's a big consortium among researchers in schools trying to study covid nineteen in schools. They found very few instances of transmission within a school. So that kind of thing is really heartening. At the same time we found that data is being collected less consistently and not being shared consistently either and that has been a concern too many people and that's true across countries. It's not country specific. So i think a lot of people working in this area really thought that by now we would have more information on had earns viral spread through schools and the degree to which that happens and it's still very limited and i think part of that is that health departments may just be overwhelmed. We're not doing these big studies in schools or we haven't done them to the point where we have results and also there's definitely issues around sharing data that allow other people to really analyze it. One of the big questions around that is does a school being opened changed how we feel about how safe it is so your kids are in school. Well are they also in sports. Are they also doing extracurriculars. This is just normal life again right. So that was something that gretchen. I have seen. I think on a personal level and it was something we wanted to look at. You know and it's a little bit squishy. I don't think there's one answer. Every family is different. But i think the psychologist do agree that when we think about risk and we think about how schools communicate and just what it means to be in school. There's a lot that goes along with being in school in normal times like carpools and birthday parties and high schoolers dating each other. There's so many ansari parts of school beyond just the classroom so the question is do open. Schools change risk perception and change behavior. And i think to some degree they probably do and they also may offer more opportunities for people to get together for example through school. Sports is that opening the door for spread in a way that schools themselves don't do that is definitely a big worry and i think we have seen that to a degree. Yes that a lot of the cases among young people are being tied to gatherings outside of school to carpools to sports either school affiliated sports or just sports leagues that aren't connected to school but that are running right now so definitely. I think there's a real concern about these out of school activities. Some of which are very much tied to schools and others of which may just have kind of resumed along with schools. That are fueling new cases. You talk about how classrooms. How students staff. Ken stay safe in an open school and one of the topics. You tackle is air circulation keeping the air. Low on exhaled viral particles. What are some of the approaches. That have been working from that. And how important is it compared to say wearing a mask in social distancing. The other topic ventilation is something we were excited to look at. We had not reported on this earlier. And you say it's it's talked about a watt in schools in all around the world. How much we need to ventilate classrooms. What can we do if a classroom. Is it naturally well ventilated. How much fresh air is enough. Essentially we really tried our best to get it some of that. What we you find is some of what's already known which is in general you want to enhance the flow of outdoor air into a room and then remove the indoor air because the goal is to minimize what people are breathing out before other people can be that in case there's virus there so you're trying to get that air out of the room in many schools that do have windows and you know often multiple windows in a classroom especially in europe. They're really opening those windows. Kids are often in their winter coats in class right now because it's getting colder. In many parts of europe there certainly encouraged to wear whatever they need to wear to stay warm in class for schools and there are many of these schools as well either. Don't have windows or don't have windows. That open classrooms. There are a number of efforts to try and help them ventilate their space. For example with a fan with filter that can clean. Indoor air in those kinds of fans are already used in parts of the world where there might be a forest fire air pollution or something else that pollutes your indoor air. You can use a fan with a filter to clean it. That's one thing we found another really interesting thing we found is that you can do these. Details sort of exhaustive calculations for different indoor spaces to try and calculate how much do we need to ventilate centimeters. We need to open our windows. That kind of thing and that can be helpful. But no one's going to be doing that for every classroom. It's just not practical. What some scientists are boarding is a simple turn it which is high quality carbon dioxide monitors. They cost between one hundred dollars. One hundred and fifty dollars normally and the reasoning for that is that when we exhale we exhale co two naturally and so measuring co two levels in the space can kind of serve as a proxy. For how well your ventilating if your co two levels are high. That means you're not cleaning out that indoor air as much as you might like if co two levels are low. that means you're you're doing a good job of that.

At any rate i can relate to justin's love for yesterday I bawled after watching. It sat there for good ten minutes just sobbing by myself in the dark living room in the middle of quarantine. It was such a good movie. I was like hearing the beatles songs through freshers. Yes that's true and imagining what it was like in those early years when the world was discovering their music and it was a more and it was a poignant story loved it one more beatles note.

When did we start just imitating the. I don't know we don't have to do that every time it's okay. I don't think it's a bad idea. i just.

I really enjoyed talking. She was very she was easy to talk to you. Go senator report. Yeah you know. It's funny with some guests. I've noticed even friends of mine. They draw very clear boundaries which totally fine. They don't wanna talk about Tom i john mccain. i didn't necessarily talk about family there. certain. And i have a very hard time i don't like acting boundaries. No now i have well. Sometimes i have a hard time. I don't wanna make people feel awkward. I i'm very like i saw him. Afraid of delving deep. Like i was just watching this just watching dick cavite interview with george harrison fucking amazing and he addictive. It is so good at that. He's he's so kind of cavalier about bringing up potentially tricky like sticky topics. Yeah whoa yeah but but with terracing brings up like almost right off the bat. He brings up yoko ono and he's so it was and he makes it a joke. He works it into casually in. But i really admired that that he was able to like go to potentially revealing places. I just i. I can't do that. our friend. Our mutual fund alex When the show for started life short for started He texted me and he said You know justin reminds me of dekalb. Justin joe reminds moved to cattle. My cat is a very high compliment off. Yeah i think it's too high so you're saying With respect to bethany franko she'd well not seem like someone you have to tip toe around. No i yeah. I found myself tiptoeing and then i realized that this kind of what made her known is revealing so much. And and so my just. My natural instinct to avoid that was was not warranted. I needed to kinda like work against it. And so that was that was refreshing. Getting to you know getting to ask her the things about personal things that normally i'd feel uncomfortable asking. Yes she I you did the thing. Where first of all. I thought it was really good conversation. And she was impressive to me very sure of herself and she is. She's very. I like her all or nothing.

She's i she. Has that drive in there. There's something that. I am impressed by people who well who are able to do that. Well doesn't it considering how she grew up and that sort of make sense. It's like racing horse racing. There's no price speaking of that. You you missed such an such a layup time. Let me guess. I guess because sometimes i kick myself. Tell me what the setup was her childhood and her stepfather and how she said i'll say it and he said she chelsea was very unstable. Our horse racing You wanted to be more stable.

Because i'm an entrepreneur and able to get a lot of things done just execute like we talked about in the beginning of the show i'm able to execute that in. It's been the greatest mark. I've been able to have in the world in new things the be with bethany. Podcasts is just like several people said me or didn't call me back about doing one and then the person who called me and said they wanted to do it. I said shore. And i didn't think i was giving it to make money. I didn't know there was a metro but another lists site another like data and it's easy you just love to do and that you're passionate about and then be successful at them. Did you ever have aspirations to be an entertainer or to go into business like this to be an actress. Let's say was that you did. Yes i'd then realized. I wanted to be myself and it john. Nra didn't exist back then so refined by a script or even hosting felt like sort of also constricting in a different type of non genuine way. This is all it fall into place really nicely in late in life. That reality television was one vehicle and then having this amazing podcast. It's just as you know. Another incredible vehicle unexpressed form really unexpected. I i read that. You knew the elder hilton daughters and you babysat for paris. Hilton and nikki did when when they started getting into reality. The reality world was that Was that something that you looked at and thought. Oh you know that might be an avenue for my made. I had no idea to even apply to me. They were. I hadn't spoken to them in you know regularly for years and they were so from another planet in that success that it definitely didn't apply to me. I just wanted to be a natural food shop. I wanted to be on the food network on the head of the food network at the time he was never going to happen. Did he give you a reason. Why now. I kept approach and i would watch. Tv and then see the production companies. Try to just call them in contact with production companies. They liked me and they would that approach him and he bought said no just is not going to happen for you. You're not right and you're not going to be on television that and that's happened now on the plug and having liquor space the podcast as even at this level of success i had been told by you know.

"And this morning. I was saying to myself about something. I wrote down the emperor the emperor. I guess it's the empress for the ambra has close. I feel like. I do have close. Sometimes i felt like i don't but i feel like i have closed. Well well as part of that. Because you're so trans. You're honest i mean you're upfront so like you said the first season the show. You weren't even wearing makeup which is I think in that world kind of a bold move but it suggests a real honesty a real upfrontness. And was that part of your impetus for leaving the show that that there were all these new rules you had to navigate. And who could. I be myself with and not who i really was. It's not conversations that i really be having and it's not wanted to be in. It's not what i wanted to portray many more adjust. There was places. I wanted to go in my career and opportunities that i believe that i could have and i thought that that was going at that point. Hold me back. It served a purpose for a while and it was getting to the point where there's a time you have to know when to hold them and when to fold them when you walk replace your hand and when it doesn't seem correct that i should be there anymore. You must've heard that song a lot. Growing up the gambler yes. I'm always very reluctant to ask guests. Because it's so nice of everyone to come on the show to take time and oftentimes there. My friends who i'm talking to so i don't wanna like divulge any personal information. I don't like doing that myself when i go on these shows. Was that ever an issue for you. I know to be on a show like real housewives as you said you're open about things and you don't have things to hide. Do you have a different outlook about that kind of stuff. Having gone through it having gone through public breakup. Do you think in the future would would you. Maybe exercise more discretion or whatever it is about relationships. See the irony is. I'm a very private person. I always have been. And i still am going through a break up. It is private. but that's not the things in my life that are the most private what's the it's not. It's not like big buckets or categories. Like my daughter's private how i feel about things how i process information. How my a might plan my strategy. Might that's private like it's more. The small stuff is more private to me than just walking categories. Who i am you know is more private. Why relationships may or may not work for me is private but that the relationship didn't work is not private to me and i made a union doing that show to open myself up What was going on in my life if it can help somebody else you know. That's the thing that's why there was a woman who was. It doesn't matter. There was a woman who was on the housewives that was fired and she was honest about being fired and if that was admirable not just because she was being honest with because it can help other people because other people especially right now are being fired. Jews bullshit everyone and and have some false narrative. Is anybody so surgery in lying about. It is not helping other women. It's like you're hiding you pretending everything's real and that's life partners to those people ever get like. Can we just keep this between us you know. Is it ever like. Does it ever get. Because i remember the few times i've experienced that with paparazzi. With stuff like that. I i really hated it like i really felt. It was such an intrusion and it freaked me out. How do you manage that. 'cause i know you're the subject of a lot of that action. You know you want to divert the message. You'd like it to be about your podcast. You would like it to that. what you're doing. It hit the player. hate the game. Because you've sign up for this then you can have lows and get only the pennells. Get none of this. Would it be fair. You probably get paid to do things out a ridiculous amount of money that somebody else wouldn't to hold up a popsicle or something like me and that's the good. The bad is if you bring up someone people are gonna talk and explain why and how so. It's just the whole adult. The little andrei. It's just the whole thing altogether and you have a podcast now. So you are going to even be. You'll be talking about more of your life and It was so funny the first couple of minutes of the first one. I heard of your podcast. I was so excited by what you were talking about. Because it's something. I've been talking about with my brother the last few couple of weeks. I think you were like confounded by the popularity of the of the song wop like. Oh my god everything you were saying about it. I was like yes. I can't under i. It's i don't know if it's just like if this is a point of divide between me and this new generation or what it is this the thing that like finally makes me realize i'm old But i know it's been blowing our minds is it's the fact that i was willing to talk about something that i knew was going to piss people off in have people come from me but that's why i decided to do a podcast and i said i'm saying i went to housewives. I'm doing it up. I'm doing. I'm doing all or nothing. Oh that's what's going on here in the time when no one's allowed to do that and i don't really give a good software safe and i said like i will survive if shutdown but there's a lot of things that you can do doesn't mean you need to do it and she. She's entitled to do whatever she wants for. People got mad at you for that people got set. Most people didn't nine out of ten people went with me and one out of ten also depends on the age group etcetera. Yes the thing. Is i saw it as yes. Men have been doing it and degrading women that we haven't liked it. So i saw as now we're gonna go degrade ourselves. It's such a fair point. I think i should run for president and go grabbing. Dick's because men have done that. That doesn't make sense to me when you're a star you're a star when you started you can you. Can you can just grab dick's. And.

How Trump's signature issues are backfiring with the voters he needs to win

"Are officially two weeks from the end of voting and the twenty twenty election. We don't say election to anymore because voters across the country are already mailing ballots and heading to the polls today was the first day of. Early voting in the battleground state of Wisconsin you can tell from the footage it was chilly, and yet we saw long lines at busy polling places. We're also just forty eight hours from the final big set piece event of the campaign. The last presidential debate which will go on with the rule change. The candidates microphones will be muted while their opponent gives an initial two minute answer to each topic. Of course, they made that necessary change because the president is so compulsively antisocial that he cannot abide by just the normal give and take of conversation and debate the debate. This Thursday is hugely important for president trump because when you're far down the polls as he appears to be a chance to change the trajectory. That said it is also, of course, serious risk because we saw what happened last time. I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I. I want to make sure. I. I WanNa make your accident. Can you let them finish her now? He doesn't know how to do that T- as. You pick. It. Be Surprised. By the wrong night at the wrong times and you agreed with Sanders. Valid is no manifesto. Mr Number two just lost the left number two. You just lost the left. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan. If -solutely. Forgotten. How horrible that was my God. I put it out. My Mary. Well, that did not go over. Well, not only pulling immediately show the president lost the debate. If you look at, say the five thirty polling average that first debate on September twenty ninth and trump's coronavirus diagnosis, which, of course happened just a few days. Later they're kind of an inflection point after which he loses three more points. But here's the craziest thing during the turning the debate into this unwatchable cringe inducing boorish display actually arguably helped donald trump because keeping the focus on how just outrageously unlikable the president is is better than focusing on his actual policy positions as compared to Joe. Biden because he is even further behind on the issues. I, mean keep in mind. This is a very divided country right now we know that we know that polarization pretty much rules everything around us, and so a lot of the time when you ask voters about any specific issue, the results basically converge on whether or not you like Donald Trump right? And that is why this new pulling out today from New York, times colleges so striking. They asked voters about a whole bunch of issues. Some that are major news stories right now like for instance, another covert rescue package on that the polling shows an incredible national consensus in favor of a new two trillion dollar stimulus. Now, that comes as we learned today that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the White House not to agree we deal was speaker Nancy Pelosi out the election because he's concerned about dividing his Republican conference. Voters overwhelmingly support a mask mandate fifty, nine to thirty, nine percent after watching the president who of course discounted the masks for months and made fun of people wore them fall ill with the corona virus and spend three days in the hospital. The Obama Administration, signature, legislative achievement, the affordable care act, which, of course. Trump back. Lawsuit is attempting to destroy right now in the Spring Gordon arguments week after election day that also comes out ahead of fifty five to forty. As does Joe Biden's current platform his plan to add a public health insurance option it would auto enroll people into it if they didn't have insurance and that has a whopping sixty, seven percent of voter support again. Twenty, five percent oppose those are big big spreads then. There are the issues that are less front of mine right now or at least getting less covers the climate crisis, for example. It's not exactly the top issue among national political talkers. The moment were really either the campaigns, and that's somewhat understandable the pandemic and the resulting economic devastation and yet. When you ask voters if they think a Biden administration should invest two trillion dollars in clean energy and other ways to help reduce the effects of climate change and reduce carbon emissions by a margin of forty points. They see s forty points on these signature tent pole. Climate Plan of the behind campaign in a country polarized is remarkable. Remember in the past debates, it was very clear that both trump and pence thought that fracking was going to be one of their best issues. It was like their their secret weapon I mean they were just talking of love fracking Americans love fracking. Let's FRAC every last Frankel Incheon this fracking country and it even put Joe Biden Kamla Harrison the defensive promising over and over that they book well, we don't have a thing with we're not gonna Ban fracking everyone knows fracking obviously track. Well, when it comes down to it, it's not even true. It's a wash. Voters are evenly split on one of the trump campaign's best issues thing they think is their wedge. No the fracking debate is actually largely about one crucial state Pennsylvania, where natural gases they may traders she but guess what a majority of registered voters in Pennsylvania oppose fracking according to CBS new Newspoll over the summer. So Donald Trump's ongoing negligent malignant incompetent managing the pandemic the disastrous conditions that the country eight million people fall into poverty and trump's personal odious nece are obviously the big things driving much of this campaign.

Interview with Bethenny Frankel

"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The skin is still working from home for the time being because of coca nineteen. Today Bethany Franken joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Skinny Girl, a company that offers lifestyle solutions for women, but you also know her name from her time as a cast member on the real housewives of New, York, and as a guest shark on Shark Tank Bethany we have found your career for years. We are so excited to have you with us today welcomed to skin from the couch. Hi thank you so much as we're GONNA start the show with our question that we open every show with which is skip your resume for. Cod a resume. I've never really I haven't had a resume in so many years but I would say entrepreneur author. Mom Philanthropists Entertainer I guess TV media personality PODCAST PROPRIETOR One thing we wanted to say actually from the beginning was that our chief of staff is from Puerto Rico and her family is there and she wanted to thank you for the work associated with be strong and she raised about. Thirty thousand dollars for the global empower mission and just wanted to thank you for the work that you did there. So wanted to make sure that I said that from the top. Oh, that's amazing. We promise the I. Would Tell You. So obviously, for those who have like Danielle, myself who've watched fear years on TV and studied your. A businesswoman, we feel like we know everything there is to know about Bethany, but it's probably impossible. So what is something that we can't Google about you or that we haven't seen on TV that we should now. I think people I don't know I'm seen as a homebody. Pandemic has been that different for me from. The landlocked being home perspective at all I say on ninety percent home by ten percent lunatic. But it's really probably ninety five percent homebody that was one of the things that was probably good about reality TV for me. It gave me a reason to wear my clothes. It give me a reason to put makeup on and I think that you fit in really well with Daniel and I are also big homebodies and our lives have not changed that much. I'm not really that social. I'm sort of antisocial in a way I have a very, very tight circle and I like it that way and I really don't let people in I really don't knock would get burned and I just don't spread myself too thin I don't I don't connect dots. It's so funny people people are dot connected and they don't even realize they're like, Oh, I just saw this person and they were doing that and did you go there of did use it like people always want to know what you`re Doing what information and connecting dots about you and I'm not a doctor at all I just don't need to provide any extra information than is required. I love that phrasing 'cause it does describe a lack of people that I know. So one of the things that I think is you know you've been so on us about is how you grew up you spoken about your childhood being raised around the race track and you've talked about how that upbringing influenced your understanding business. How did that frame the hustled that you clearly have? I mean it's only what we can speculate I can't know because I didn't live any other life in any other environment but I know that I grew up. Very quickly, I was going to nightclubs and I was thirteen years old getting myself in handling myself. I used to go from I have some island into the city and take training and. I was just living like an adult when I was thirteen years old but handling myself, I worked at the racetrack. I was a hot walker which meant that when the horses come off the track after they've exercise I, would you walk them? You give him a bath and then you walk them around the shed row until they cool down and so I was working I was a hot walker the when I was like. Seven if I had to get six seven until later in my life and I used to. Spend the day at the racetrack. Around gambling, going up to the betting window myself meeting all kinds of crazy unsavory characters. This isn't like the fancy wearing hat Kentucky Derby part of the race struck with the backside. My father was a horse trainer. So you're hanging out with jockey agents and bookies, jockeys, themselves grooves, and it's very gritty. and. The race track itself is about gambling and that's the whole thing. So that's how they make their money. So you're basically growing up growing up casino, and in fact, we used to go to Vegas again when I. was like thirteen years old and I would be going to the craps tables and so I just had a very nontraditional life very, very young. And it was really well that I knew a lot of violence in my house and you know drinking and just fighting and just being an adult as.

Can I didn't have any business then just conceptually while what if I do something there was nothing I had nothing I was broke. What if I do something I don't like this part you know. So you're thinking down the road and I was the first person to monetize reality television bread. Yeah I mean people say I ruined it for everybody but that was what was important to me with inspired by the way it's not just about that in some cases I've said in getting raised. Okay I'll take less but you need to let me do more society you get. Locked up in something you know I'll take less than he. Let me do more when I was doing my beam deal for the cocktails.

Trump defends lawsuit over NYT op-ed, calling it 'beyond an opinion'

"Trump campaign just filed a lawsuit stuff nation against New York Times for an article in the opinion section. Okay Yeah Okay that I do not understand what is remotely going through their minds other than using this as you know a campaigning tactic to look or suing the time but also like if there was actual bad reporting. Surely you'd have found an article that was not in the opinion section to make peace. Yeah I was GONNA say opinions are allowed what are their good or bad but unless there's something factual report in The New York Times. I mean they report on Him Fifty Times a day. I'm that is really interesting. Do you think who is the piece by was is it more. Personal like is a particular person Max Frankel. And it's about the the real trump Russia quid pro quo But the this article came out in March of two thousand nine hundred and the claimer just before we started courting but the central claim of the trump campaign's loss appears to be that this March Twenty nineteen opinion column. was knowingly false because it was rebutted by the mother report the claimant. Lados published in April. Two thousand nine hundred so okay. Yeah so also. They're open themselves to discovery. They are now. That's who don't understand depositions. I don't I don't get their strategy. There's there though it's like Devin Nunes. It's bullshit seats all the time trying to increase the cost of reporting on trump. Yeah yeah that could be it. I mean the New York Times I I mean. What could they do like just retract? The peas or be like from what I've seen. I have not looked at in great doubt. But it doesn't seem like there's anything actually Tori in the opinion section. Yeah I mean I think I think probably the goal here is. They're just trying to put on alert. Hey guess what you report on. Trump will see you and cause a lot of cost to you all the time to the curious choice because they definitely have the resources to back that up whereas chose smaller reporter like a smaller outlet. That might quickly destroy them. The lawyer's fees I think trump is in this kind of like a hate everything New York face though. He is definitely that. Yeah so

"Why do you think it is that you fell into that sort of up? Some prominent American just passed away called Frankel. You know. I think we all did our as you say. We all did our share policy speeches. We did you know our share of political stuff. But no. That's absolutely right. I gravitated toward ones. I think that required some sort of moral language some sort of sense a history and I think part of that is a goes to the my my family background on the Frankel side steeped in history and public service and on my mom's side the war experience which I from the Holocaust experience which one of the things. I think it instilled in me. Was this sense of right and wrong and we need to fight for what's right and we see you know if something's gone wrong. We need to. We need to stand up and say so and so there is sort of a moral language. There I Gravitated toward And those were the by certainly speeches. I enjoyed work on the most end. You know Obama was often very involved in a lot of this speeches. I always viewed the process. I mean we would meet and we discuss WH- as a team the speeches that had to done and we kicked around our thoughts and everybody I think from the perspective of you know I mean I had some strategic imperatives but also are we reflecting the president's values are we reflecting his way of thinking but I always felt like no matter how well you guys did with these speeches and no matter how well the product came out. We always were just trying to place this unpolished gem in front of him and then he would take it to a whole different level. Yeah you we just want to get in the ballpark for him. Because the worst thing would be to get back the draft with no edits. That says let's discuss yes. We wanted to get it to a place where he could make his line it's an in- invariably he'd improve it. We look forward to his edits because they would always be turns of phrase ways of saying things that I thought were so original at Never would have thought of of putting it so it was a great just as a writer. it was a great experience and and by the way you unique almost for modern. American political speechwriters. Because we've talked a lot of other presidential speechwriters who did not have that experience with their presidents. They they may have loved their presidents and wanted to do everything they could to support them but they weren't getting in. Many cases didn't have close relationships or collaborations with those presidents. Peggy Noonan has written about barely seen Reagan and so We really benefited from the fact that President Obama is such an extraordinary writer. And and sometimes they'd be line at sometimes he would. You'd get back yellow. Legal Pads of of copiously written out passages sometimes could go on for pages that he he'd want to insert here or yeah and and structural change. I mean that's the thing that because he was an is such great writer he would just fix it himself often unless it required so much work he decided we needed to take another cut to get it to try. And get it in the ballpark. But yes that's right. He would sometimes he'd read through it and if he thought it required significant amount of work. Just write it out long. Hand sometimes incorporating some material from that initial draft revising it reworking.

"The proud Frankel family tradition working for losing Democrats and I got my political bug from my grandfather. I wanted to be a speechwriter. Because of my grandfather my grandmother was also very close to Irene from Chicago her sister Josephine Baskin A wonderful woman also went to northwestern and later well at as you do and married. Newt Minnow who served as chairman of the legend. A legend absolutely thirty four years old. He became head of the F. E. C. One of the great x-files conversation I ever had was with new minute. Incredible man and so and Newt and my grandfather were very close and collaborators in politics and so I grew up sort of wanting to follow in that families political footsteps. And Your Dad. He had a law degree but he was involved in government as well absolutely he worked in Robert. Kennedy's Senate office and volunteer various campaigns before entering the UN system. And you take field trips with him. Down to Washington and very few father-son stories relate to looking in the newspaper and try to find the most interesting congressional hearing that day. But that's what you guys did. We did. We did that to us. Just go to DC. We go to some hearings. We'd have our faces buried and tomes about American history and You know and we loved every minute of it you the Perez who. I thought I was the Frankel were who I wanted to be. Yeah Yeah and and I think this book in the process of writing it and reflecting on the journey that I write about has helped me kind of grapple with that I mean I think that the I'm I'm profoundly grateful for a lot that I get from my parents met and family but there's there's also a mix it's a complicated legacy that the Holocaust has left with our family and it was a a cleaner story With the Frankel side it was it was unambiguous love and hope and uplift and something that mission and mission something that was easier for a young kid and adolescent to one aspire to be. Your parents were divorced when you they met At Sue University of New York They were divorced when you were four years old. You're an only child and from that point on you had a very complicated relationship with your mother in part because of her own struggles. Yeah and you know. It's it's strange. We look back on our histories and our own pass because Some memories were buried and came to me. Only as I started reconstructing my passed over the course of working on this book over the end reflecting on on my life in recent years. But Yeah my mother. My mother has struggled with depression for most of her life before I was born. She was hospitalized for a suicide attempt. When I was young she would Locker Cell Phone. Lock herself go into her room and shut the door and I have memories from when I was very young going up to the keyhole and Kinda appearing in wondering what she what she doing there. I'm kind of you know I'm an only child out here. Just sorta what's going on it. But it became the pattern. It became the routine. And so you know in that. Was Those memories. Now fill me with sadness for her and that experience I can speak for my own family's experience. My mother had her own struggles. My parents were also divorced and more my sister who's older than me. She found herself in the role of sort of both being the child and the parent and it felt like. That's exactly what you experience. Yeah I think you know I think maybe partly because I'm in a only child and just by temperament or personality or or whatever I I definitely felt that I was the emotional anchor that I was the source of her emotional and psychological equilibrium. And part of my job was to help. Maintain it That was my sense. I was a sense. I think there was reinforced by the family. You know that my job was to just make sure she's okay You know if she's upset about something or wants me to do something always do it. Just make sure she's you know she's a she's a professional absolutely a an accomplished professional woman and wide ranging interests and passions worldly and she. She taught me a lot. And she exposed me to a lot and She also had demons that she wrestled with. Yeah you went to Princeton. Which was your I. Guess Your Dad's a matter and you knew that you wanted to be part of this world of politics and and government and a pivotal figure in your life was someone who as a child was sort of a heroic figure to me. Ted Sorenson who was such a enormous figure in the Kennedy Story John F. Kennedy Story. He was really his intellectual alter ego and had the pen on many of Kennedy's great speeches. First of all. You got an autographed picture of Ted Sorensen for your Bar Mitzvah. Eileen really I'm telling you man I'm like this is what I mean. The only guy I know who grew up wanting to be a speechwriter I was just GONNA in the air with Frankel Family Fair. We should point out you also Were a baseball guy. That's true you also wrote away to the heirs of of shoeless Joe Jackson disgraced Chicago. White Sox outfielder who was part of the black sox scandal. So it wasn't just about speechwriting but I I would venture to say you probably the only kid in America who got Ted Sorensen. Autographed photo for your. It's probably right and you went to work For him I did when I was a junior in college I we linked up. Thanks to my minnow family Who INTRODUCED US? And he needed a research assistant on his memoirs. He had just had a stroke. That historian who is going to help him had left him on the project and he was feeling discouraged. He met me this. You Know College Junior. Who is in total of him and thought I can put this guy at work? And he was right and he did and so For six years I work very very closely with him on his memoirs as you know helping him initially with research in the outline and then ultimately helping him construct it because because he he he had Had very difficult a difficult time. Seeing what you would do is he would dictate notes Which he could see under the right conditions of light and angling the notes and we get the transcripts and I'd clean them up and then we kind of go back and forth until they resemble chapters And he was just an extraordinary guy who taught me so much. I mean that's why I want to ask you because I can attest to the fact that you are a brilliant writer. Anybody who reads this book will see that. But I got the treat of having the experience of reading your copy for several years when you were working for President Obama. Something we'll get to and I'm wondering. How much did you learn at the foot of the master? Yeah he really is the master. I mean I I'd say a couple of things. One one thing I learned wholly apart from writing is as you know well the whole ethic ethos of the new frontier was public services and noble calling noble profession. An idea that is not in currency. No I know but it's important to remember his important. I think we've actually seen an example of that in the testimony of these career public servants during the impeachment scandal who to a person have been deeply deeply impressive absolutely and they're modeling that absolutely and so. I think that I absorbed from Ted who believed that with all every fiber and is being but I tried to absorb as much as I could about writing. I mean I think in a way he had a similar approach to speechwriting as I think President Obama did and I don't think that's a surprise because they're both lawyers so they both thought And wrote In a sort of legally trained way what I mean by that is structure is very important and so they were outlined things they'd think in terms of what's the first point. What's the second point you know? This is something people don't really understand. Barack Obama could and I think you noted this he could go on for pages of the speech without what you would consider an applause line because he viewed them as arguments with a beginning a middle and an end that built on itself and I mean the language was beautiful and he also had this lyrical sort of ear and musical ear and how words interplay and Sawn but you know one of the things that passes for speechwriting today is the stringing together of an amalgam of applause lines. And it's almost always unsatisfying at the end. Yes and that's the difference between a great speech and a an ordinary speed. That's exactly right and you know it's not like Ted in. Jfk sat around before the Kennedy inaugural saying what would be a great soundbite for this inaugural Asked not they. They were focused on writing In argument and making his case about ideals that he believed in what he was going to do for the country. And so I. I absorbed that way of speechwriting. How do you tell a story? But tell it in the form of an argument and that was really I think the over whelming the most important lesson about speech and you employed it as a young speechwriter in the John Kerry campaign in two thousand four as you pointed out earlier where you worked with another young speech writer named Jon Favreau and that turned out to be a fateful association. It did. Yeah no FABS. I still remember Showing up for my interview on that campaign which you know true to form you know I was in my early twenty s came in a double breasted wool suit president of Games fabs. Meanwhile I'm going there fabs feeder up on the desk. He's wearing jeans and a polo show. Is the VIBE. Yeah I was like I think I need to inform. Is this a little bit? But we became very very good friends and Both part of that small speechwriting team all actually actually another member. That team would be Sara Hurwitz joined the world And after Kerry lost FABS went onto work for Obama in the Senate and I came back to New York To help Ted on his memoir but we stayed in touch and around the time that Obama was all that news about Willie. Run won't Iran yes I let fabs no. I will do anything I can to help him. In any one way or another and And he He called me up in two thousand seven and said Gibbs gave me a little money to hire a deputy. You want to move to Chicago and I said absolutely yeah. What are your reflections on that experience because it was sort of singular at least in the modern era? I remember sitting down with Obama when he was thinking about saying. We really haven't had a great idealistic campaign since Bobby Kennedy. You know in in the sick and and he was too young to remember that and I said you know where we really sort of inspire people to believe that we could change the world and that's the great opportunity here and that was really the vibe of that campaign that was. I think he communicated that. I think everybody in the campaign felt that we did. And I've heard you describe it as a frank CAPRA film in some way. I mean it was it was look I. It was everything you want a presidential campaign to be. I've heard Obama described. People he admires is so and so's you want them to be. That campaign was what you WANNA hopeful idealistic. It was inspirational. Who didn't want to let the candidate down? I mean I remember the last thing I wanted to do is disappoint Bronco by trying my best to do the best job. I could for Barack Obama because I believed in him so much and I wanted to write speeches. That could inspire people to believe in as much as I did and he gave so much to work with. I mean that was the amazing thing speeches. He'd written but dreams from my father who has written a so far long before and then runs for president can actually stand by a lot of that but we borrowed a lot a lot of what he'd written there for each invention speech from two thousand four eggs Yeah well I'm thankful every day for the experience of having been involved in that and the administration and I'm thankful in part because I had a chance to work with all you guys and as I absolute highlight of the whole experience. The Word Smith says I like to call you when we got to the White House. Oftentimes you're the guy who wrote the memorial speeches. The you know these big Hotta Tori kind of speeches and you're steeped in history..

Fighting cancer with CRISPR

"Now we have staff writer Jennifer cousin Frankel. She wrote a story this week on Crisper and cancer immunotherapy to big ideas says mushed together for the first time in human patients. Hi Jennifer Hi. Thanks for having me sure. I said something scary. It's not every day that we get to say a something is a first. There's always a lot of pushback whenever we put it into a story or if it comes up in a research paper but this is some type of I. This is the first time that that researchers have reported on taking immune cells in this case the T. cells which we kind of think of as the soldiers of the immune in system that fight off infection using crisper to modify them together and then putting them back inside a human body and seeing what happens. It's that hasn't been done before. It hasn't been described before their trials that are going on. That are testing this and this is why we never put I in a headline exactly far to do was dive into the techniques. We're GonNa talk about cancer immunotherapy and then we're also going to talk about crisper. We need to kind of understand both of those things to understand what happened in this paper. This is a specific kind of cancer. Immunotherapy right yes. That's right so cancer. Immunotherapy is essentially trying being to harness the immune system to fight cancer. And it's something that's been really hot in the cancer field for the last several years in fact won the Nobel prize is just the other year. What this study is making use of is one technique in cancer? Immunotherapy that uses the T. cells and it tries to to sort of help. The t cells recognize tumor cells and then destroy them some of the problems that have come up as people have experimented with that. Were things like it. It doesn't really get into solid tumors and some other things. This is still a really new field and people are still working very hard to improve. Its success it's been pretty successful in blood cancers leukemia in lymphomas and there are two Cardi cell therapy's that companies have developed in that have been approved there are some additional additional hurdles in solid tumors. And it has been more difficult to consistently get the therapy to work in solid tumors solid tumors or things. Like brain tumor pancreatic host humor. Like I think yeah any tumor. That's kind of a solid mass as opposed to in the blood. That's the cancer immunotherapy side of things. Let's talk about the crisper side of things. Can you just tell us what crisper is. And then maybe we can talk about how. It's been used their politically or not so far. So crisper is another really hot area in biology Jay. It's a technology that essentially cuts DNA and then the DNA can kind of recombine in different ways it can be used in different settings to add genes or DNA to remove them. It depends but it can give a lot of flexibility around modifying DNA A and it's used in all different settings not just in medicine but strongly medicine is one area where there's been a lot of interest in using crisper because it's a way of modifying lying. The genome in this case crisper is used to modify immune cell so they took immune cells out of a patient and then use this gene editing technique to make changes to them. They had these three patients and what they did was they took out blood cells and then they modified those cells in the lab. They had to add in a gene gene. That was going to target a protein that was on the surface of their cancer cells. The other thing that they did was they used crisper to edit the genome such that they were knocking out three other genes and the genes that they chose they chose because they I hope they would make the T. cells even more powerful. They hope they would help them. Hang around longer in the body more effective against the tumors than they reintroduce introduce those cells. They gave them back in. That whole process takes several weeks. It takes four to six weeks to from the time you take the blood out to the time you put the cells back in. They had to go through a number of layers to make sure that they were really doing everything safely and carefully. So what were they worried about when they reintroduced these cells into the body. One one question was just you know with these cells even survive right. He just kind of disappear which has been a problem. In general with some genetically modified t cells it can be hard good for them to kind of thrive in the body and these these were cells that had been modified in several different ways. Then of course another question is are they going to cause harm MHM if they do survive and one particular concern with crisper. Is that when you go in to do this. Editing you can have these off off target effects. Were you accidentally cause modifications to other DNA. That you weren't aiming for there was concern that that could happen then of course that's changing other. DNA in the T.. Cells who knows what effects that might have on the patients so those are the big two questions and then also you know they probably wanted to know if the people would get better. Everyone of course hoped that that it would help. These patients get better at the same time. The trial was not really designed for efficacy it was too small and it was also also so new and so they made certain choices in the very specific details of the treatment. They offered that improved safety. There were certain things they did did to try and make it less likely that the immune system of the patients would react in a sort of dangerous way to the cells but in doing so that could potentially elite reduced. How effective the treatment is you know the target that they picked on the cancer cells? They pick that specific target because there had been a number of trials targeting doing that with traditional therapy so they knew was probably a pretty safe target. But it may be isn't the best target unfortunately and as you might expect from. I'm talking about it. The patients did not recover from their cancer. Because of this therapy. What were some of the other results of the experiment that we can talk about now so I would say the results were that for the time for which they've been followed? The treatment appeared safe so far. Nothing scary happened nothing. There were no showstoppers. They saw some off target effects. But those off target effects didn't seem to cause any obvious harm to the musicians in the cells that had the off target effects. The percentage of cells with those effects seemed to kind of fade out over time about the target effects like the changes made to the T.. Cells of these patients. Were those persistent in the body. One thing that I think was quite heartening. Is that these. He sells really stuck around in a way. That other t cells going after this particular target haven't in other published studies and so they've they've lasted so far up to nine months and they're continuing to follow these patients and also when they took out the cells over months which they did did they would take blood from the patients and then look at the sells again it could get them back and study them in the lab and those sales were targeting cancer in the lab now like you say in the patients. The benefits were definitely limited. There were three people treated one of those people has since died and in the other to their disease has progressed and they are getting other treatments. MHM so the effects were limited. You know it can be hard to kind of know how to understand that on the one hand this is just three patients and so we were very very sick. And so if we're thinking about what's going to be an effective treatment you need to treat more people to really know and then again you're thinking about this. First Time in people have focused on safety safety from your story from boats. It really seemed like that people in this field were saying this is a step. This is getting us over a really big hurdle. Yes I think it's a step and I think it's kind of layering on the use of crisper onto this other area of cell therapy that have gotten so much interest interest in generated so much excitement cancer but also still have a lot of room to improve and it's a way of saying can we make better use is other technology. What's expected to happen next more of the same thing? Are they going to try to infer different targets. One of the exciting things about this field right now. Is there so much happening. And people have so many he different ideas for what they could try and there are a lot of different theories and we don't really know what's going to pan out and what's not and so there are a lot of different. The group's thinking about different targets different cancers other diseases of course to apply crisper to their companies. That are involved. They're just a lot of different ways. You could go with this but right now. There are other trials that are recruiting patients for crisper modified t cells else and some people. I talked to said you know. There are surely going to be many more trials opening in parts result of this study. What kind of of regulatory oversight was there for this is there a body that governs crisper studies? There's not a body that's specific to crisper but there is as a group called the recombinant DNA Advisory Committee which is a a panel that has traditionally vetted the safety and ethics of different gene therapy trials funded by the US government or other other funders and so this went through the review of that committee. which is colloquially known as the rack of the and also so went through you know a lot of review of the National Institutes of health a lot of review from the US Food and Drug Administration? You know as you can imagine anything new. Where you're you're genetically commodifying cells to a degree? You have four earn away. You haven't before writing them into people you have to be careful and of course you know. Everyone has hopes for this therapy in the years ahead. And because of that you have to be so careful when you're starting out. The hopes of a lot of people were pinned on gene therapies. His and yeah you know some early problems. Really put a damper on the field for a long time. Yes if something really terrible happens not only is that obviously terrible for that individual it has these ripple effects across the field and so I think the people running this trial. We're thinking of both of those things as they designed and pursued the study. Thank you so much Jennifer. Thank

Hunting new Epilepsy drugs

"Now we we have Jennifer cousin Frankel. She's a staff writer for the Science News Team. This week. She wrote about the hunt for new epilepsy treatments. Hi Jennifer Hi. Thanks for having me. Oh Oh sure so. I was surprised to learn from your story. How common epilepsy is? How many people are you know have epilepsy? And how how exactly. He's a defined well. One in twenty-six people will develop epilepsy over the course of their lifetime and epilepsy is in some ways. An unusual disease these because it's really defined largely by its most striking symptom which is seizures repeated seizures. It sounds like a lot of people have this. But what made you decide to write about the treatments for epilepsy. Now will there. Were two things that jumped out at me and really captured my attention and drew me to the story. The first I is that about thirty percent of patients continue to have seizures despite taking medication to try and treat those seizures. Wow that's considered drug resistant. Epilepsy that just seemed like a really high number to be. There are a lot of drugs out there to treat epilepsy. And yet you still have that thirty percent percent of patients who continue to suffer from seizures. That was the first piece of information and the second. Just a striking piece of information is that that percentage really Lee has not changed over many years. Even though there have been a number of new drugs approved to treat epilepsy so the fact that there was this high percentage that was unchanging are largely unchanging. Despite new therapies really grabbed me because it suggested that we need to do do something differently here to help many of these patients. Can you talk a little bit about why having treatment resistant. Epilepsy is not a great bag. Yeah so it's it's really hard for a lot of these patients. This is a really a varied group of people. Some of these are people kids and adults who might right. Have a form of epilepsy called focal epilepsy. That's pretty common and that affects a specific region of the brain. So someone who has focal epilepsy. That's drug-resistant can wake up every morning. Not Knowing whether they're going to have a seizure that day and you're living with this very intense unpredictability in your life in in addition to living with the seizures and living with the side effects of the medications that you're often taking to continue to try and control them for other patients. It can be very devastating if the seizures are really uncontrolled they could be having multiple seizures a day very young children and babies that have many many seizures. Ken Suffer Developmental Delays and other problems as a result of that You know as you can imagine it. It can be really hard to live with even if the seizures aren't that frequent even if we're just talking a few seizures a year that can still be very disruptive and can make it difficult to live your life the way you want to so when you started to look into this question Why isn't the needle moving? Why is treatment resistant? Epilepsy still so calm. When new drugs are coming on the market? What did you find what's going on? There are traditionally the drugs that are out there. Treat the seizures which is kind of the end of the story here. That's the end point of the disease. Is You have a seizure and the drugs next target seizures and it's true that for many patients that really works well and kind of does what you needed to do. But we're also talking about what doctors refer to as a really heterogeneous disease as a disease that has varied causes and for many patients. We don't really or haven't historically really understood the cause of the seizure. So it's kind kind of almost flipping the pages backwards in the book. What brought us to the seizure in this particular patient and trying to understand the biology behind it and and I think the belief of many doctors and scientists is that we need to do that for many of these drug resistant patients to more effectively? Target Cricket control their seizures. Once you begin breaking down this heterogeneous group you have things like little kids. Infants genetic predisposition Dan traumatic brain injury infection like all these very different factors associated with onset of seizures. How how are they taking this on and and kind of trying to find what leads from that initial insult to seizures? It's a huge job and there is huge variation here. I don't think that one person send can cover it all and I don't know that anyone even in their store right exactly and that was a real challenge with this story to is really trying to put it all together other without overwhelming the reader or the writer for that matter but yeah I think you have different people who are kind of coming at this from different angles so like you say there is this subset of of genetic syndromes babies that are born with certain gene variants that then caused seizures and they might cause other challenges as well and so in that case there are efforts to maybe develop animal models the carry that same gene variant or a very similar gene variant. And then study those models and test drugs the talking about animal models. You mentioned that there. Is this change there as well as instead of inducing seizures in animal models. It's looking for ones that have seizures naturally literally in order to really study. What's going on? Yeah so the history with the animal models was actually really interesting. The earliest animal models which were developed many decades ago involved inducing seizures one at a time initially with electroshocks and now people also use chemicals to induce a seizure. And then see if you can treat it with a drug in some ways. That's a model. That's easier to work with because you have control over it but these are animals that have otherwise healthy brains and you. No you're causing. That's easier to happen exactly at the time of your choosing. Those models have been really useful at helping us. Identify a number of anti seizure drugs eggs and anti epilepsy drugs that are on the market today but in the last several years there was concerned that if we just keep using these models were not going to branch out in the kinds ends of treatments we find were using animals whose brains are not really the same as the brains of people who are dealing with epilepsy so he talked about the genetic underpinnings some attempt to tackle those what about these other things like for example sometimes a severe infection can bring on seizures. There are definitely in cases of severe infection or a very prolonged very high fever. Now some of these types of epilepsy are really uncommon that they can be especially devastating. But but some of that work has been scientifically really interesting. Because it's lead scientist to consider different strategies for example looking at inflammation in the brain gene and inflammatory molecules and targeting. Those which is not something we usually think about is associated with epilepsy. But there is. There's a lot of interest in that now and part part of that is in this world of infection induced epilepsies normally. When you think about epilepsy you might think about channels and how neurons fire rather than you know what's going on with inflammation or immunity? Yup One more thread that we could pick up here is traumatic brain injuries being associated with seizures. What kind head of research is being done with those types of epilepsy so this area is really interesting because in this case you have a brain injury and then you have a a time lag before someone develops epilepsy as a result of that injury and that is a window of opportunity that researchers? I want to harness now in use to try and prevent epilepsy in these patients. So the work is still pretty new. And we're not at the point where we can prevent prevent this or have any kind of therapy to prevent it but there is a big effort now to try and identify which of these patients are at especially high risk and then look for drugs or other treatments that can change that trajectory. So that person doesn't develop seizure disorder or you know maybe has a much milder disorder or one that's more responsive to medications. This reminds me of another point. You make the story. Epilepsy is the endpoint. Sometimes we know the starting point. Sometimes we don't but we really care about what the researchers really care about the ARC from the starting point to epilepsy. That's what they wanna trace and it just seems like there are so many different paths one. We haven't talked about is focal epilepsy. Yep that's exactly right one. One of the most common forms of epilepsy focal epilepsy. In that case you know we often don't know the cause. The low people are still working to understand that but another strategy Radzi one can use instead of trying to dig down and get it the mechanism. If we don't have a mechanism is looking at the drugs and thinking. Okay we have a drug. It doesn't work for everybody everybody. Let's better understand this drug and why it fails in some patients. And how can we modify or create a new drug that that enhances its effectiveness. So that's another area of interest for drug companies and others to try and understand the biochemistry here the Chemistry Ministry of the drugs and what they're doing in the brain which we even with approved drugs. We don't always understand and then understand why in someone who's WHO's not being helped helped by a particular medication. What can we do to make it better for them so that it can better blunt their
