"Yes, can you describe the painting for us? Well, it's a small, but mighty painting. It shows Frida Kahlo. She's staring out at the viewer. And Diego's face is on her forehead above her iconic eyebrows. And she is crying three very powerful tears. Her hair normally her hair you see in portraits of freedom that it's braided, it's neatly piled upon her head, but here, it's tangled, it's loose, and it's also wrapping itself around her neck as if it's strangling her, which is quite unusual for one of her portraits. And in terms of what this meant, in her mind's eye, how do we interpret it? Exactly. So Rivera pops up quite a few times in Carlos portraits and often he appears on her chest, symbolizing that he's in her heart. Here he's on her forehead and it's the idea that yes, she is thinking about him. And I'd say in all of her portraits, what's interesting is she includes him, but the subject is still her. She's showing the effect he is having on her. So here it's the effect on her subconscious her mind, the pain. He's caused her. Yes, and that pain was complicated because it was infused with such love as well. Yeah, so they were in and open relationship. And they got married twice. They got married, divorced, remarried again. And I think this year was a particularly tough year in the second time around with the marriage because Ribera started an affair with one of Frida Kahlo's close friends, which felt like the ultimate betrayal to her and so this is what brought her to paint this really powerful portrait. And now showing that pain. Well, now, a record breaking portrait. And the record having been held previously by her husband. Yeah, I mean, brilliant. Ultimate act of revenge, but also I think ultimate acts of validation for her as well. I think there's something in that. People finally giving due to so many women artists among them Frida Kahlo and it's fantastic to see that. Yes. And I suppose just to ask as well because so many people, even if they don't quite know this painting, but thank you for describing it so well. They are drawn to her, especially so many women. Even if they don't know the stories, they don't know about her relationship. What do you think it is that is that language of connection? Well, I think she painted very honestly, her lived experience. Her experience as a woman, she painted miscarriage, abortion. She painted about the surgery. She underwent it really Frank terms. But at the same time there's something quite stoic about her paintings. And the Mexicans call her the heroine of pain. And she presents herself as sort of in control of that narrative. And I think that differs from the way that a lot of men are painted women as going mad from romantic relationships gone wrong..

Rental Assistance Programs Are Swooping In To Help As Evictions Resume

Shelby County, Tennessee, is already facing that challenge. NPR's Laura Wamsley reports. SP KEY and apartments versus Delores Egleston in a courthouse in Memphis. Tenants are packed into eviction court as much as social distancing will allow when their cases are called. Tenants are asked this question by Judge Phyllis Gardner. Have you talked with anyone? Or are you interested in the rental assistance program? I've talked in case after case Gardner urges tenants to visit room 1 34 down the hall. Where Memphis area legal services attorneys help tenants start applications for rental aid. One of those attorneys, Frida Turner, stands up in the courtroom to speak about the program if you apply, and if you're approved We will pay up to 12 months of your back rent plus one month of futurist. We will bring you to zero and you'll get a fresh start a fresh start. That's what's new even if evictions aren't thanks to the billions in federal aid tenants who are behind have a chance to stay in their homes due to a federal court ruling in July. Judges here in Tennessee haven't been bound by the CDC order for more than a month. The judge Gardner, the CDC order delayed the inevitable while in Memphis, they started resolving cases. We've been able to deal with the problems to give these people and landlords some closure so that they can move on. The most recent CDC ban was intended to give states and localities more time to get assistance out to renters facing eviction. But it's been slow going by the end of July. Nationally, just over five billion of the $25 billion allocated had been spent. Several states have used less than 5% of the federal money so far. But in Memphis and

Podcasting IS Branding with Chris Hines
"So i want to hear what what you love about podcasting and when i say that i say it because i think for me i had to use my voice to find it and i. I like to say that. Because until when i started i didn't i was like i just need to. I wanted my reputation but in like talking about things and force myself to use my voice. I kind of found. There's this trend. Like i keep talking about these things because when you get out of your head and you're just you're forced to talk every week you start to come up with. This is what. I'm kind of pissed off about today. This is what i'm talking about. There's a trend and so by using it. I kind of found like what i want to be passionate about before you like when you started to get into podcasting or even just now like what is it about podcasting. That is really you up and made you kind of focus on that. I've always had a strong opinion. And i've never really been afraid to speak my mind like public. Speaking never frightened me. I can't remember one distinct moment in high school. It was kinda one of those lazy days where the class wasn't doing anything. And i i just went to the first class and i just started talking to everybody and asking people questions and it was like open forum where we will just have it as mass discussion. It was about basketball. But i was standing in front of the class talking to everybody. We're argued about sports. My professor is like easier going to be a comedian republic speaker. And i was like oh of non much to do that so i can't ignore it later on in college. Isos forced to take a public speaking class. And at the time. I still was speaking publicly yet but i wanted me take discourse and actually did it and i attended and everything and i loved it and has been one of the best things ever so they got me so deep into podcasting is it's a way arcane consistently like you say use my voice in share my thoughts opinions on different things. It's just it's freedom for me. This is frida. I love it. I could not imagine life without it now. You have a show called the personal branding. Playbook it's one of your shows you of a few and in that show you talk about building personal brands podcasting and more one of the episodes you talked about. Why podcasting is the future. And i want to be fully biased. 'cause i always hold my whole my punches back mike. Well you could also do a youtube. You can also do a blog for me. Podcasting is what's right. Let's talk about that a little bit like. Why is podcast future. Because i want to convince some people today to just get off their butts and like try man now is the time i keep trying to tell people time because five years ago when i started podcasting people looked at me crazy. My family literally asked me. Why are you talking to yourself in a closet awesome. It was crazy years ago. now it's mainstream. everybody either has a show or they know somebody with what so. Now's the perfect time to start with. Because they are so popular right so the main reason. Why park has it gives. A future is because of the networking aspect. This is probably the most underrated feature of hosting a show. When you're host of apart as you don't always have to do interviews. In fact i advise you don't always interviews but you get to connect with some amazing people and they teach you so much like i've learned a lot from having conversations with people there. Were all my show. We built amazing relationships and in those same people some of them come back on my show again like bestselling authors like millionaires they. I've learned so much from these people. It's like my own masterclass like so the networking aspect is like the top for me. Yeah i think it's the same for me. And it wasn't what i thought when i went into it when i went into it i was like i want to this so that i can create content and so that i can become known for something and i was like what when i started interviewing people in fact when i started show it was a solo show and thirty episodes only solo show but i got coaching. 'cause i was like i love podcasting but i want to do it. That guy so. I found someone that was doing it well. And it turned out that like adding interviews changed everything for me because the networking it opened up doors and now and i introduced myself to people that i really said of being a fan boy and saying hey i love what you do. Love your book and i can be like. Hey i actually like to get into your book and ask you some questions that got you know to really dive deeper on something and they love that and i love all. They love it authors. Love it because it's like you first of all you bought my book. I appreciate that. Oh you wanna talk to me of book. Oh for sure like very rarely. Do i reach out for an interview and a person is like no. I don't wanna do that like it's very tell people all the time like the best part of the is you get to network and then everybody you wanna talk to wants to talk to you now. You will have a few. that are like busy. Maybe later this year but most of them are going to say yes. It's very rare that they're like nah. I don't wanna talk to you at all. That's very rare. I'm curious about your opinion on getting people started. And how you get them to go. And then i'll give you mine. But how do you get people started. What's like your path step one-two-three if you had to give someone a sequence to follow to be. Oh may step one is to have a goal for your show to many podcasts star with no go there just like i kinda wanna to sponsor i would like to sellable or i just want host. Show wanna talk. Whatever your decision is. That's fine but you have to have one goal. Step two is to have a theme for your show because if you just talking about everything and it's which is up every week i'm not subscribing. I'm pretty sure every park has listeners. Like this you have certain shows that are for entertainment for a certain type entertainment. You have go shows that you go to for news. Maybe have educational shows. So you have to figure out what you're famous for show and number three is to really have a direction like are you gonna do. Seasons isn't going to be solo. The it up a bit a what's your style of producing your show so the first stages for me. It's always planning like plan i am. I forgot how the saying goes. Who said it. What is it a sharpened a knife for ninety nine times and cut once measure nine times and cut once there. It is so it's the same day Exactly i think my my stepdad. You say measure twice. Cut once so that you don't like yeah you can mess up the would you don't want you cut it right. You've got it wrong your script. I love that now. I'd say the same thing. Honestly when i get people on a call i offer you know by talking for twenty minutes for free. It's no problem. I can't teach you how to watch a whole show but at twenty minutes. I bet you will get you in the vicinity of what the show is going to be about. Because if i asked you just a few questions you are the one who knows not just your the realm you know the the category you wanna be in but you typically know what it is. It makes you different. You just haven't said it out loud enough times for to for you to hear yourself. So i think if i can give people there to where they have a sense of. This is what i want to talk about. Then the fires lit up inside of them. And if you can get the show somewhat named even then like then it's their baby and like they're off to the races and then from there like don't worry about the people getting it done better than than perfect and i'm like i have mixed feelings about that but for me. I'm more like getting it done to where you've recorded something and not distributed it not putting. It tunes that literally just record some things a couple episodes solo interview. Whatever records some things. You can get a sense of what this could be for you if i can get you there and just tell you. Those couple of things might help you with that. Then i think you're golden and once you've experienced it then you'll have the passion to want to learn the things that are harder usually stop people though. Yeah yeah man. Because you know it's funny coming from the basketball world it's normalized for athletes and players to invest in himself to get better like that's a normal thing. If i'm telling you i'm working on going to the olympics are higher three trainers and i have a nutritionist. You will look at me crazy and say oh. That's good do well but podcasters don't have this approach to podcasting yet. It is worrisome to me because the industry is becoming bigger and bigger and bigger and more money being poured into it. But if you're not a podcast you can't see any of those benefits is not gonna work so you have to invest in yourself as a host to get better at your craft like you wanna learn how to interview and be a great interview. You have to learn that you don't just wake up one day and you're amazing at it because you wished it on night. It doesn't work like that. So i think we need to make it normal for people to invest in themselves to become a better park.
How O Magazines Arianna Davis Made It, on Her Own Terms
"You're right anyone yearning for more creatively fulfilling life. Shouldn't strive to emulate or be. Frida the most impactful art is created when you tell your own story. What is the story.

Ed grew up in the suburbs around the white kids and with the private school. So identity for me was always a very complicated thing especially as a kid. And i was also really shy kid and i was the kid who always heather nose in a book so i think my story would probably start with being a little girl and just finding such solace in such escape in the pages of a book. And that's really what i think kick started my love of writing and reading and storytelling and it would then kind of take me through. This journey of wanted to be a writer. Going to penn state in setting journalism thinking that i had to go down the newspaper track because that was what was accessible at the time versus magazines. What i really want always wanted to do.

Big Freedia "Queen of Bounce"
"On stage in front of a sweaty crowd of people pushed together dress their best remember? Beginning crowds of people with other sweaty people and being dressed your best and not just wearing pajamas all the time. Bounce music is party music and big Frida will she's the Queen abounds. It's a sub genre hip hop that originated in New Orleans, where big Frieda is from people lose their minds when they see big freedom perform. She wraps torques and she Wants you to both rap and torque. Big Frieda has had a busy year despite the pandemic. Last time we spoke on cue, she had just released new music. She was hosting Friday night shakedown parties and a cooking show. And now she's got a new holiday deep and her 2015 memoir, God, Save the Queen Diva. Is out in paperback. I got up with Big Frieda over Zoom, and she started off by explaining what it is that she loves that she adores about bounce music. I mean, I love my crowd. First and foremost, I love the culture of bounce music. I love the origin way comes from my love The people that love the music. The sound the base the boom, they're not, You know, I love everything about it. It's You know is what I know. It's what I grew up listening to is what I enjoy. It is my type of music. What do you think it is that the audience gets out of it. Like when? What do you think that when people watch you and your dancers go like what do you think they get out of it? Well, A lot of people have told me over and over that it's like a bounce revival. You know, like they some type of spirit comes within them. And they, you know, they let their self loose and they lay their hair down and they party and they have a good time. I'm so happy you said about survival. I want to play this. Take a listen. Please don't harm being faces. Either room killers all read in about a minute Walk, Walk, walk, walk up in the room maker maker becoming a man's globules. No one's reading you. That is my guest. Big freedom. Performing the title track offer latest Keep Louder, which came out earlier this year featuring I kind of pop. So Bounce revival you in this in the video for that there's bounce and there's gospel music, So let's just let's just get their facts straight here. You started out in the church right in church choir. Did. I started out Very young in church. Um, I later became a choir director and my church home at my high school. I had my own choir somewhere Many quiet around New Orleans traveled the world with a choir. So yes, started in gospel music, and then you had to make a decision right between bounce and gospel. Well, at some point, I'd be it. You know, One sound. I started to get heavier. And so the bounce music and things kind of started to take off for me. I kind of have to make a decision. Yeah, but that was that a hard call. Itwas. It was very hard. Um, you know, I talk to a few people. First. I talked to my mom and then I talked to a few people at the church. I talked to my godmother, Georgia who's in the book. Um, you know about the situation and about what was going on in my life in these transitions, and yeah, it was a hard call. And, you know, my mom always said no matter what, long as you keep God first and everything that you do, I think you'll be okay and that stuck with me and I made my decision right? You're right, because it's not just a matter of like, I don't have a lot of time. Like I have. I have to get me That's part of it. But it's also sort of a spiritual decision, you know? Yeah, it is. You know, I was tossing and turning, you know, while making the decision off, you know, going into over crossing over to bounce music, but I never lost my faith. And I never lost my hope. And I never lost my love for gospel music. Still listen to it all the time. I still you know, Go back and saying what the quiet when we have unions, so I'm still you know, I'm still connected. And And you know, the building is the is just the place and I still have church in. They must love to see you when you come in to sing with the choir again. Oh, yeah, it be like old times. You know, we'd be all happy to see each other, You know, And then I go back into a whole nother person. I'm not freedom. When I go to church, you know, it's like I go back to when I was growing up and where my roots come from, so It brings me back in the aisle. I love to be reminded of where I come from. Well, let's let's bring it back to what you said earlier about about survival. What similarities? You see between bounce and gospel? Well, um, I see a lot of singularities first. I see that, you know, is a gathering of people and then You know, there's something that come over them. You know when they're at abound. Show that something that comes over them when they're at church. I'm also still directing. I'm directing. When I was directing in church. I will open my hands and people will, you know, saying now one pointing my finger and people shaking ass is so it has a lot of similarities. Still, you know, I feel still like, feel kind of feel like the director when I'm on stage. Yeah, The The intention in the process is the same. The result is a tiny bit different. I get it. Yeah. Most most of the time for church, people falling on pews. And, uh, you know, when I'm at abound, shield they're they're falling out with their ass is My guest is my guest is big Frieda. Another thing that struck me in your book, and you mentioned this. Just that actually was how strong your relationship was with your mom. Um, I know I know your mom since past I'm really sorry for your loss, and I I could only imagine what it would have lost. That must be because you get the feeling that your mom just gave you unwavering support. And you tell this story. I was hoping you might tell about the principle. Call in home on you and your mom having to stick up for you know what he well, you know, I always had issues when they came to my hair. And what do you mean? I always wanted to wear my hair all type of ways and exotic and you know hi to the feeling and there's one particular time I had went to school with a foul. That was kind of high like Marge Simpson, You know that high of a style. And the principal was just not happy. When I walked in school. He was just very much not happy. He called my mom right away. He was fun family, and he, you know, cousin. And my mom went to the school and put him right in his place and said that the Children should be worried about their education and not worried about my child's here. So she told him just the two bit where to get off at, But she always defended me. No matter what. She was my queen. She was my rock. She was my biggest cheerleader. And when I told my mom at an early age that I knew that I was gay, she said that she already knew and that she loved me for who I am. So once I had the support of my mom Um, I didn't need approval from anybody else in the world. So my life really begin at that point off, starting to make my own decisions and feeling really finding out who I was and finding my truth. There. I don't need to tell you. There are parents who would not be a supportive right? Oh, yeah, Most definitely. I had friends who Mom was not supported. That wasn't having it that you know, they couldn't do the things that idea or they couldn't go to places I went or, you know they couldn't be themselves. You know, I don't with that growing up as well. A lot of my friends around me had issues at home that they were fighting. And they will come from me and my mom as the outlet. She was the cool, mama. She must be still with you, You know? She's my guarding an angel. She walks inside of me every day. She's in. She's still within me, and she helps to protect and make things happen for me. If you're just tuning in, my guess is Big Frieda. She's known as Queen of Bounce. Her memoir is out now in paperback. It's called God Save the Queen Diva. You've been talking a lot about bounce you've been talking about, you know, keeping going during some of these dark moments, and in the book, you talk about it particularly dark moment You get pretty candid about Hurricane Katrina. You were with your siblings when it struck. Your niece was with you. Who was just a little baby. Can you tell me a little bit about that story? You know, Katrina was really rough in life changing for all of us. You know, we had to be evacuated by boat. Um, you know, we have to cut a hole in the roof to try to get your rescues to even see us who kept flying over us and picking up neighbors, right? Um, next door to us. So we had some really trying times We slept on the bridge. We slept at the convention center for a few days. We went on a cargo plane and got dropped off at an army camp base. What? Then we slept. Yeah, there we slept at a warming campgrounds. Then we went to ST or then we went to the class Louisiana. Then we went. I went to Houston. Then I moved back to New Orleans. So my life was in a really Um, it was a roller coaster, and it was, um Roller coaster of emotions and moving and restructure in my life and finding out where I was going to live, you know, along with my family and I think often Katrina, though, because it gave people a chance to start their lives over, especially if your life was in shambles, or you needed a new start. But for me it also let me know that material. Things don't mean anything long as you could survive and have your life you can get through anything and all that other stuff can be brought again. But you can't buy your life again. And that was the most important for me with survival moments for me and my family to survive during those times, and a lot of times we take tragedies for for granted when we see things on on TV and on the news and on, you know, on the radio. But After experiencing country Noah. I took everything that I saw into account and I felt the pain of those people and what they went through and whatever catastrophic disaster death he had, But Katrina was definitely life changing for New Orleans. On. We're still recovering each day. I don't want to, in any way imply that it was good. I don't want to, in any way imply that it was Ah, anyway. Good thing. It was absolutely devastating thing that happened her Katrina, But like do you think That you'd be Where you are today if you hadn't survive something like that. Not at all. You know, even surviving it. You know, it also put The sound of bounce music even further because we were displaced all over the world, and people started to want to know what's that music? What type of music is that? Can you teach me the dances? You know we were. We were all over the world. They had a little New Orleans all over the world, And when those New Orleans people were displaced, they wanted to listen to their type of music. And it was New Orleans bounce so people in Houston and Atlanta and you know, everywhere we were man. What is that music, you know? Teach me that. Show me that. And I thought if the travel all over people started requesting me And when I got to the different clubs and in venues, it was like Michael Jackson or Prince had a ride because the people were screaming and holiday and like running up to me, like, Oh, my God, I can't believe you here, you know, but it was felt. Like a sense of home and I wanted to bring some joy into those people like that was going through some stuff and I was still trying to bring joy in my own life, so it felt good to go around and see people of New Orleans. And how they missed the culture and how they missed the music. So the music really started to spray it and got me even further. Are you cool with that? Are you cool? When when? When

"Be behind the firewall. And I'm looking something that we can put on the firewall. Absolutely I agree. And she knows my only point mentioning Sharma's that was one venue but would be. I'm sure she'll be thrilled to have other venues. The whole point is to get it out there as much as possible right so and I think the the the other things to keep in mind is that it's not just preventing vendors it's for it's really intended as a practical guide for people that are developing a internally as well because you know we see that also happening more and more. Which is that people might be using. I met drinks but they might also have developed. A you know an attrition Algorithm or whatever it is and so just keeping in mind best practices around that as well as important. So Y- this for me and you know obviously Kerr crossroads is a is a private membership. But the fact is we. We worked to promote publicly those things that ought to be public and this is one of those things. I clearly I think. Eight on the Association talent acquisition professionals also would be by. I would love to be able connected in a way that makes sure that will be able to do that. I will do that. I will do that after the saw after we get off the podcast. We happened in touch with great and he any last thoughts relative to this whole issue of improving decision-making in that selection process. Yeah a couple of thoughts. I mean I think one thing is. We need to be mindful of the data that we're putting in there. I think that there are examples You know of people that are putting in data link and again. This is especially true for sort of big data mining and social media data by the facial announced. I mean they're just data set said you know. Academics have have shown to be problematic in terms of bias. And so he know. Ideally I would try to stay away from those as much as possible and I think we would also realize that you know we really want to look at. Is Their Job. Relatedness in in some of these variables. It's really just thinking about the data that we're putting in you know someone's twitter feed really job related. I don't know I don't not sure it is right now. So that's one thing and then I think the other thing is and this may be a little bit more controversial with Serge Traditional assessment providers. But I'm GONNA say anyways. I think that we've come to a time where we can build things that are both predicted from fair. And I think that the old adage is oh will be predictive bias or non predictive at but fair and United States. The time for that sort of false dichotomies over and we really need to push ourselves to say You know to to find that tool. That is the tool that technology multiple technologies hopefully many technology that can provide the best of both worlds. Because I really truly believe that that exists and I think that there's also this this notion that it's very embedded in the field that oh if we make something fair we are by definition. You know making it You know trading off some accuracy while you know quite frankly that is another thing that needs to be looked at more carefully because you know we continue to look at this in our own algorithms. We don't really see that I'm not in the way that it's described as sort of a truism in the field and again I think that if you're just perpetuating these myths based on stuff that was true maybe a while ago and this information is dated. I think we need to take more careful. Look at some of these things that are considered facts or dogma in in the field and again I told you ahead of time this might be a little bit more provocative for the things I've said but I think it's time to really take take a close look. I love you when you when you said predictive. Unfair that we we. We are at a point where we can do that and I suddenly. What came to me the vigilant visual for me was was kind of Joe Hari Window where we were able to. Maybe a post all of the different methodologies that are out there in one of several different windows and obviously we wanna move move the The distribution of those into that predictive in fair interesting absolutely. That's exactly right. That's exactly right and at the end of the day you know. I think there's a lot of legal folks that would be like. Oh but you know. Is it legal to do this at the end of the day you know? Legality is is an evolving field. Meaning reality is it reflects the ethics of the Times. It's kind of back to you know and I think you know. We have really embraced socio-economic inclusion diversity equity as a society and I think that if our legal framework is still sort of framing framed back in nineteen fifty nine hundred seventy s mentality. I think that's another thing that that needs to be thought about because again I. I don't think that we need to step up to the fact that what we're doing is not necessarily it. We going in a risk averse. Point of view does not help us a rewards of doing it well for every exactly and I think that again aisles. Make the case that we live in a society that I think has come to believe. At least certain large segments of that society have come to believe that you know more diverse organizations better performing right. I think most people think that however if you think about your traditional communist testing it's very problematic in terms of diversity you know. Blacks and Latinos are highly disadvantaged. You know so. For every ten Caucasians that will pass a cognitive assessment. It's like three African Americans and for Latinos. That's great then. If you are using a cognitive test I think you know you gotta wonder what's The impact of that on my diversity And so and you know the reason people use cognitive test is because again the field would would tell you that there are those predictive had however that's how can those two things be true. I mean if on the one hand there were the most predictive of success that we know that divers organizations are the best performing those two things are in contradiction so I think again beuys to look more closely at inner using the things we believe to be true because the world of work is extremely different than when some of these seminal studies were done back in the nineteen seventies and eighties. It's just it's like fifty years have gone by. And we live in a global world where it's highly complex and things are very diverse in a heterogeneous and maybe the things that we learned fifty years ago. Don't go home nearly as true as they as they once they want. State if you know so I think it's important to to revisit some of these ideas with the more critical I was. I think that's a great point at which weekend I think. Stop but I really appreciate the opportunity to have to have a conversation with you. So that's great. Thank you so much.

The fact that she believes have lit her success her tips for being a good tea house. She tends to her own mental health wellbeing so incredibly busy and she shared the four groups of people. She thinks we all need to have in our lives to continue to grow. If you hear something while listening that resonates with you please share with us on social media using the Hashtag. Tv In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Dr Frito. Oh It is my pleasure. I am so happy to be able to chat with you. Someone who has had such an illustrious career really focused on working on health disparities really taking care of people who are struggling. So I want to hear from you. What's your career has been like. I WanNa hear what helped you to even focus on studying health disparities as your career. Well for starters started as a child interested in health disparities because my passion for Madison. My decision to become a doctor was when I six years old and I grew up in a home that included my uncle that came to live with us when I was born. My father's brother one year younger who had been paralyzed at the hands of polio infection. When she was years old and I had a lot of exposure to help issues and to the healthcare system it you would the people that took care of my uncle in both the primary care environment as well as surgical and rehabilitation and other environment and we had great experiences and so I wanted to be a part of that but as I grew and understood what we were facing as a family it was clear we were not necessarily getting access to or the benefit of things that others were getting the benefit of at least not without a fight and then when I went to medical school at Howard University in Washington DC. I had a chance from the other side see the ramifications that lead to disparities everything from the Economic Environment The physical neighborhood and environment education food all of the above and then I was really hooked in trying to find a way to address it wherever I could. Yeah I think is really interesting that you do some of your training at Howard because I think that that kind of primes you right to be focusing on these kinds of topics in our community. Well it primes me and forced me to action in large ways and small way literally. I would look at the data to figure out what medications I should get my patients and those and understand what would happen to them. One I did and the data was lacking the study had not been done in my patient. I would note. Is Well. Gee I gave her medication to my patient and it says here the likelihood of getting these facts was a but it seems to me that they're higher in the group that I'm serving and so I began to see that. Not only did we have work to do. In addressing the parity. We had a lot of work to do in understanding disparities and then understanding what we could do about it so having patients in clinical trials just as a small example so that we could really understand what medicines or procedures would be best applied to a patient population. Kinda the beginnings of individualized personalized health. And so that started a whole fourth. I'd eat for me and what I called Ethno psychopharmacology but looking at the medicine used to treat. Anxiety and depression is yeah and trying to get a better understanding of whether or not race and ethnicity had an effect on which medicines might work better with those might work better what to expect in terms of side effects and so it's really at that level that I think we have some understandings game in order to completely address health disparity issues and that's a great lead into my next question because I'm curious to hear from you. What kinds of things you think we do need to continue to be focused on in terms of health disparities so I think we have a few layers to focus on. We've got to do something about our policies and practices. That would help us address. Some of the factors that we talked about. I don't think we completely saw health disparity issue in our community until we address some of the economic challenges and so how to get equity or quality around our economic. We're not going to completely solve the problem until we address a physical or environmental issue safety. You know whether or not we're exposed to things that would lead to higher rate of illness. Asthma is a great example. You know kind of fixing the environment that we live in so that we can begin to reduce the impact of asthma community. But we've got a number of policy opportunities to put it into practice and to address. The societal issues and environmental issues contributed the disparity. But we also have an opportunity to address issues in our healthcare system. And I have a friend that laugh every time I say that. And she says what do you call it a healthcare system and I say why shouldn't I should say 'cause we ain't healthy. Nobody cares in the show notes and right so so I laugh. I said well I disagree with the Middle Part because I think a lot of people do care but we can't disagree with the fact that we ain't healthy and it ain't no system so I think we have a lot of opportunities to address bias in the system. We have a chance to address access to the system. We can make things easier. We don't have to get up and get on the bus or go to the car and go across. Town is seeing someone we can use. Virtual technology are medicines can be delivered. But we don't have to worry about you know access in that way so there are some things that we can do right now today. That improve accent that we should do and then my mother used to always say. There's some things you can do while you wait for them to do what they should do. So I think that air from things that we can do in our communities and as individual to reduce the burden of health issues in our community and that inclu- upping our game and health literacy like Willie learning things about our health individuals that live in the community and to spread the word about the importance of that. But what is my health history? When is my family helped history and my monitoring my blood pressure my Paul my heart rate do I get my sugar check and on and on and then the individual behaviors that we do what we eat whether or not we're active etcetera? So I think that there's a whole spectrum that we can do and then as a system I guess my passion but also my fantasy if you will like just pick a thing would be to actually take the model that we have that we know work in community. We demonstrated that we know how to get. After we haven't done is identify them as scalable model and then scale them taking what we already know we can do and that we demonstrated that we can do well and figure out a way to not make this happen in you know one community but to provide a platform to expand it to as many communities could get it too quickly as we can get here

"Yes Sir talking about greenhouses real quick give this greenhouse one or one well we get these calls from these teachers that always get these grants for a pretty high dollar nice greenhouses and then they basically say well what I do now well didn't you think this out and planned this out and honestly honestly most of all these greenhouses the product not all of them the most all the greenhouses that become a big headache down the line so you really need to set these things up correctly the biggest challenges the heat here in the summertime that means it's very expensive to replace the times if it gets a hell storm or they just get milky overtime or if its glass which are very expensive or the plastic which is a by Wall double plus the ply that needs to be replaced so you have this is a law it's kind of like having a boat billion all right so that's that's our greenhouses on I think they are unless you're a commercial grower you gotta said fans got to run the fans all the time if you don't want the fans there's a lot of inputs and work on it and maintenance and for most people they're not gonna do that so they become a disaster unfortunately down the line the phones got time for a couple of calls Frida good morning how can we help you good morning I was interested in buying a variegated shell ginger plant and was wondering how much sun it needs significant take like westerns son or what is the best way to plant it and those are very good sensors are beautiful plants the fall is just cool again and those shell tops usually take two years of not freezing back or damaging the lease for them to bloom so just FYI on that they really really do best in containers but you can grow in the ground in a well protected area they need a shade or filtered.
Obama-backed documentary on Ohio factory wins Academy Award
"The documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length documentary was produced and directed by my guests Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are it was the first film acquired by the Obamas new production company higher ground which is distributing it in partnership with Netflix last year American factory when the Sundance directing award in the documentary category the movie is about what happened when a Chinese company opened a new automotive glass factory in Dayton Ohio in the same spot where a GM company close just a few years earlier the new Chinese factory foo yell glass America was greeted is great news by Dayton and by men and women in need of jobs but as time went on it became apparent there was a considerable culture clash between how the Chinese treat workers and have the American workers expected to be treated especially those workers who are used to having the United auto workers union behind them and no longer did some of the workers are making half as much in our IT Fujio than they did at GM by focusing on this one factory the film is a case study of what the global economy means for some American workers and how hard it's become to find work that pays enough to have a home and support children right guard and bogan are with the perfect people to make American factory they live twenty five minutes away from the factory and their previous film the last track documented the closing of Dayton's GM factory the last track was also nominated for an Oscar your record Steve Bognor welcome to fresh air congradulations on your Oscar nomination and on the film thank you Terry so what were the expectations in your hometown Dayton won a Chinese billionaire announced that he would open a new automotive glass factory there on the site of the GM plant that close you know people were very hopeful we had lost the GM plant almost eight years before when chairman Chow who's the you know Chinese billionaire who bought that old rusting General Motors plant when he came to town it just everybody was really very excited yeah after that GM plant closed things were so hard for so long I mean people lost their homes the job you could get were like at the Cole's distribution center or payless shoes warehouse distribution center or fast food people making nine Bucks an hour and and imagine your middle aged you gotta cater to your mortgage and you're making nine dollars an hour it's just like it was so hard and there was such hope went went through yeah now yeah so what were the incentives for the billionaire the Chinese billionaire the chairman who opened this factory in Dayton well one thing is if you make glass in the Midwest right on interstate seventy five right if you think about it goes from Detroit all the way down through the south all the auto makers are all along there so heavy glass no longer has to be shipped from China to reach the big three and all the other automakers and you know labor costs and China have been going up over many years and labor costs you know what people make per hour in the US have been going down and so the chairman and his team the free out team we're doing a lot of calculations about the cost of shipping the cost of energy labor costs and at some point it made sense for them to come to the US and and actually chairman shall told us he was also asked by General Motors by some of the other automakers to set up shop in the Midwest because they needed more Cassidy more more reliable glass delivery you know the chairman is seventy three years old now he's exactly my age as it happens he I think wanted a kind of capstone project to his life and he wanted to create a big huge plant in the United States this was a huge challenge his family was against him a lot of the Chinese other businessmen were against him it was kind of a personal decision on his part to go ahead and do it despite the opposition from people close to him it's such an interesting clash of cultures that we see in American factory expectations regarding everything about work from pay and benefits to what workers are expected to sacrifice for the privilege of working for the corporation let's start by comparing what automakers made at the GM plant when they were unionized and they were in the United auto workers to what they were making at Fujio which is not unionized well in in the film shown a Rosser who worked at the old GM plant and now works of Frida she says it varies directly she says that GM she was making twenty nine dollars and some cents per hour and if we out she makes twelve eighty four so that's less than half of what she used to make and you know she has several children she's got she has a house that they actually lost they lost their houses they couldn't they couldn't make the mortgage payments after GM closed it's a very different world and you know here here's the crazy thing it's like in China it's been a remarkable trajectory like China is on the rise and people in the film like Wong he once he is the furnace engineer who has been sent from China to the U. S. he's here for at least two years is not going to see his children for two years but he's been working a full house and she was like nineteen years old she is so dedicated to food out and it's offering him a path to the middle class he told us he's going to be able to build a build a house for his for his family for his kids back in China because he's making such good money meanwhile in the states people like Shimei who once had a blue collar middle class life modest but but secure they they have no security anymore and it's it's just very different landscape I want to get back to the culture clash between the Chinese and the Americans at the Chinese on factory in Dayton the American workers there thought they were working just like too hard for too little pay and the Chinese supervisors and the chairman that is the CEO of the company thought American workers that they're they're just lazy they don't appreciate what we're giving them and they want to much praise they need to be praised all the time where is the American workers felt like they were not being respected you know you're really putting your finger on something that I wish the management had recognized way earlier in that plant and I will I hope all foreign companies coming here begin to recognize that in our work culture workers expect to be respected expect to be not told do you just do this American worker will respond well why and maybe I have a better idea we'll look them look the supervisor right in the eye and question them this is not really happen in China very much it's just a different work culture where people do what the boss says boss says you have to work six days a week or seven days a week you just do it but in the United States we are we are expected we've what fought to have an eight hour day and the have weekends off that's pretty much unheard of in industrial work in China people expect to work twelve hour days six days a week the Chinese workers we spoke with we spoke with a lot of them they're not happy about it they don't like being away from their kids for most of the year or only seeing them on Sunday partly it's because that's what the culture has brought them to you know they've they've lifted millions and millions of people out of poverty in one and a half more last generations right but that has resulted in this really intense work life and people are proud you know Chinese workers are proud of their country they're proud of their company they're really proud how China is flourishing in the world I would say the American workers we now I can't say that they're proud of their company or they feel like really behind America like Americans really helping them rice in the world I think we're on a trajectory of less hope less possibilities we here in the US as far as working class people where is in China I think there's tremendous hope a tremendous sense that what our country is really has a huge place in the world to play there's a sequence that I I find so fascinating where the Chinese company bring some of the American supervisors to China to to see how this plan this kind of plan operates in China because the CEO of this company you know has one or more glass factories in in China so they bring them there and you see what it's like in China for the workers there first of all all the workers are in the union it's the communist union and seems like the branch of this union is headed by the CEOs brother in law true true yeah so what is the what I know strike one what is the union do for the workers there what is what is the meaning of the union well it's more like a social club either the union there because the the the Chinese Communist Party is so integrated and aligned with the management of food yeah now the traditional concept of the union that we would have here as an advocate for the workers in opposition to the company or to take on the company that that really doesn't exist the union that we saw and at Foochow in China is more like an HR department that helps build camaraderie esprit de corps you know that the kind of team building stuff and it's it's yeah it just felt different something else that really struck me and the Chinese segment of the film is that the supervisors talk to the workers in an almost military kind of way like to learn the workers would like line up information and the supervisor would kind of give them commands and then they'd have to like chance things at the end and they're chanting slogans like long as long as it's in praise of the company slogans they probably know really really well and don't really need to chance yeah it's this is just about their cultural difference it's funny because when one of the American supervisors when he got home he tried to get the Americans to line up in that kind of military formation and it just did not go that well you know it's like the people who signed up to work in this hot intense glass factory and the United States they're making twelve eighty four an hour and they're not getting paid enough to line up and be regimented like that there's a slogan that is said which I think so in kind of in capsules capitalism which is to stand still is to fall back wasn't that it's Steve yeah that's one of things a chance the morning on a day to stand still is to fall back and that's that's true of capitalism it is weird that the this communist country seems like the best capitalists in the world right now you know that they're sold they've been so driven my guess Sir Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are they produced and directed the documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length
Gender Bias Reveals Consequences For Female Artists
"Okay for music to art. How many feet famous female artists can you name? No not beyond say or Riana artists like Frida Kahlo and Mary Cassatt. If you're having trouble thinking of more than a handful you may be onto a major problem in the art world. We've been artists are routinely left out of museum exhibits and the work is on average valued much less less than that of their meal. Peers Selley herships and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics. podcast the indicator from planet money. How that story there was this? This artist named Joan Mitchell. She was an abstract expressionist. She died in the nineteen nineties but she painted a lot. Joan Mitchell was hugely successful and to our world insiders. She's a big deal. But if you're thinking I've never heard of her you would not be alone. KRISTA LATCHFORD IS CEO of the Joan Mitchell Foundation. She's doing remarkably well at auction. The prices are very high but are they. High in relative to Jackson pollock no way are they high relative to Kooning nope paintings by the KOONING and pollock have gone for sixty to one hundred sixty million dollars. KRISTA says there is no record of Joan Mitchell getting. We're close to that kind of money for her work. which brings us to a big part of the reason that people have trouble naming famous women? Artists Artwork by women and men is just valued differently. Rene teaches finance at Oxford and she and some of her colleagues did an experiment. They picked paintings at random and they showed them to viewers. There's and ask them to guess if the artist was a man or a woman on average the Experiment subjects couldn't guess it was painted by man or woman. Renee says it is practically impossible to look at painting and figure out the gender of the artist but she says if the subjects guessed that the painting was painted by a woman they like the painting less renee looked millions of records from auction sales and she found out that on average work by women. Artists sells for forty percent less than work by male artists and because art by women is valued for less museums by less of it and that is how less artwork by women ends up on display in museums. Ziems at the Baltimore Museum of art only four percent of the collection is women artists. The problem is the same major museums around the country. Christopher Bedford heard the museum's director he says that's why next year any new artwork. The museum buys will be by women the various different filters that we put in place to consider acquisitions nations and have always had them. Placed considerable additions and that system comes together in various different forms specific to the museum to filter the history of art and to include or exclude. Unfortunately in the case of women artists often museums have been excluding. KRISTA says anyone who's buying art museums included has to be careful of what's called the superstar effect sales of female artists represent just the tiniest slice just two percent of the market but of the two percent. Forty forty percent is five women. That's what can happen with the superstar. Effect a tiny number of artists. Become like Tokens or symbols and art buyers or museums ziems or individuals. Feel like they've bought something by a lady and so they feel like they don't have to do anything else but then museums can essentially say okay. I've done my female show will move back to our normal Sally herships Cardiff Garcia N._p._R..
