3 questions to ask yourself about everything you do
"When i was in high school at the age of seventeen i graduated from high school in. Decatur georgia as valedictorian of my high school. Proud of myself. I was from a low income community. I'd grown up in mississippi. We'd moved from mississippi to georgia so my parents could pursue their degrees as united methodist ministers. We were poor but they didn't think we were poor enough so they were going for permanent poverty. And so while they studied at emory i studied at avondale and i became valedictorian. Well one of the joys of being valedictorian in the state of georgia is that you get invited to meet the governor of georgia. I was mildly interested in meeting him. It was kind of cool. I was more intrigued by the fact that he lived in a mansion. Because i watched a lot of general hospital in dynasty as a child. And so i got up that morning. Ready to go to visit the governor. My mom and my dad are also invited. Got up and we went outside but we didn't get in our car in the south. A car is a necessary thing. We don't have a lot of public transit. There aren't a lot of options. But if you're lucky enough to live in a community where you don't have a car. The only option is public transit. And that's what we had to take and so we got on the bus and we took the bus from decatur. All the way to buckhead where. The governor's mansion sat on this really beautiful acreage of land. These long black gates that ran the length of the property. We get to the governor's mansion. We pulled a lever that lets them know. This is our stop. We get off the bus. My mom my dad. And i walk across the street and we walk up the driveway because their cars coming up cars bringing students from all across the state of georgia. And so we're walking along the side and as we walk single file along the side of my mom and dad's sandwiching to make sure i don't get hit. By one of the cars bringing the other valedictorians. We approached the guard gate and we get to the guard gate. Guard comes out and he looks at me and he looks at my parents and he says you don't belong here. This is a private event. My dad says no. This is my daughter. Stacy she's one of the valedictorians but the guard doesn't look the checklist that's in his hands. He doesn't ask my mom for the invitation. That's at the bottom of her very voluminous purse instead. He looks over our shoulder at the bus because in his mind the buses telling him a story about who should be there and the fact that we were too poor to have our own car. That was a story. He told himself and he may have seen something in my skin. Color may have seen something in my attire. I don't know what went through his mind but his conclusion was to look at me again and with the look of disdain. So i told you this is a private event. You don't belong here now. My parents were studying to become united methodist ministers but they were not pastors yet and so they proceeded to engage this gentleman a very robust discussion of his decision making skills. My father may have mentioned that he was going to spend eternity in a very fiery place. If he didn't find my name on that checklist and indeed. The man checks the checklist eventually and he found my name and he led us inside. But i don't remember meeting the governor of georgia. I don't recall meeting my fellow valedictorians from one hundred and eighty school districts. The only clear memory i have of that day was a man standing in front of the most powerful place in georgia. Looking at me. And telling me i don't belong and so i decided twenty some odd years later to be the person who got to open the gates. Unfortunately you may have read. The rest of the story didn't quite work out that way and now i'm tasked with figuring out how do i move forward because you see i didn't want just open the gates for young black women who had been underestimated and told they don't belong. I wanted to open those gates for latinas for asian americans. I wanted to open those gates for the undocumented and documented. I wanted to open those gates as an ally of lgbtq community. I wanted to open those gates for the families that have to call themselves the victims of gun violence. I wanted to open those gates wide for everyone in georgia because our state and this is our nation and we all belong here. But what i recognize. The first try wasn't enough and my question became. How do i move forward. How do i get beyond the bitterness and the sadness and the lethargy and watching an inordinate amount of television as eat ice cream. What do i do next. And i'm going to do what i've always done. I'm going to move forward because going backwards is an option and standing still is not enough.

Biden Names His Picks For Key Players On His Pandemic Advisory Team
"Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be one bite and becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices. He backed legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president. There has been some pushback right to this particular selection from progressives right? He was a top economic official in the Obama White House. He famously was brought in to help after that disastrous rollout of healthcare dot Gove and save the launch of the Affordable Care Act. There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment. He comes from the business world since leaving government he's Leading investment firm, and he also served on the Facebook board of directors for a time. The reality, though, is that this doesn't require Senate confirmation. And even those who object to some of his connections concede he is good at managing systems and solving problems in a crisis that is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Thank you, Tam. You're welcome, Elsa.

What Your Brain Needs Right Now
"Hello everyone excited to bring you another incredibly special. Untangle as we know in untangled we love to talk about your experience of the world. Unpack it both. What happens emotional perspective a psychological perspective and and narrow scientific perspective and there is no one better that i could bring on to help you understand the experience that we're all going through right now. And why your emotions in your brain be reacting. The way they are and what you may be able to do about it today. We have dr lisa feldman barrett. She's an extraordinary neuroscientist with multiple awards. She's a distinguished professor at northeastern university with appointments at harvard medical school and mass general hospital. And she's also author of bestselling in very surprising book. How emotions are made. And she's a different way of thinking about your emotional experience than you may have considered before she also has a great book. That just dropped seven and a half lessons about the brain and here is dr lisa feldman barrett to share with us her insight on. What's going on inside your noggin. Welcome lisa hake you so much for having me on your show My joy and my pleasure so when you think about the brain you have kind of different perspective on the brain than most people do. Tell us what is brain. How does it work. How does it drive us. I think most scientists for a long time assumed that the most important thing that human brain does is think because thinking is something that humans are very very proud of and people assume that in brain evolution that there was this striving towards more and more and more complexity with the human brain at the very top so of course the thing that we value ourselves thinking in rationality at least in the west. This would seem to be a really good candidate for what brains the most sophisticated brains which people assumed for longtime hours would do but when you look back into evolutionary time which you can see is that and actually when you look at the structure of the brain. It supports this idea that the brains most important job isn't analogy. It's not feeling or thinking or even seeing your brains. Most important job is regulating your body and all the systems in your body and everything that you can you feel and you see and you hear and you smell and so on are in the service of regulating that body now. That is not the way we experience ourselves in our lives but that really does seem to be. What's going on under the hood. Very different approach so our perceptual experience of the world is in service of helping us regulate our body. Yeah pretty much so even vision for example is not free from the influence of. What's going on inside your body. There are many many experiments showed this that. What's going on inside your body influences sometimes. Literally what you see. And if you look at the connectivity in the visual system and its relationship to other systems in the brain you can see really clearly that vision is not like an objective window on the world by any means we have a sense about how our pre existing perception of the world can continue to shape our perception of the world. This is the whole echo chamber of the news that he thinks that everybody else's and currently i'm not an echo chamber but clearly there an echo chamber because you have a preconceived notion of what's going on and then you read information that with what's going on and that creates your tunnel vision of experience. Can you talk to us a little bit about how that's formed in maintained however echo chamber chamber. Yeah wow well. There's a lot to say about that. I think the thing ariel is there are two ways to answer it. There's a superficial way to answer it. Which is to say brains. Don't just react stuff that's happening in the world we're selecting would signal in. What is noise. Nuts i mean on a moment to moment basis and that certainly is true interesting but i think to me the more interesting the answer it has a little bit of setup and that is that your brain runs a budget for your body. What's the most expensive thing that you can do that you can spend on. It's either moving your body or learning something new especially when things are uncertain and so if your body budget is running a deficit you're not gonna spend as much and so you will be comfortably in a silo because it's more metabolic expedient for you and it will feel more comfortable that's why imparted feels more comfortable. So there's a superficial answer but there's also sort of a deeper answer that relates more to the larger culture that we live then. We have to design a cultural context bankrupt. A body budget would be the one that we live in.

He was working at the AMMO. Counter Walmart. And I remember that. Joe Is going to be like campaign whenever you watch. Josh Lewin. Sure. I had him as the run- runner up not because of his failures but he had to watch travis Maldonado shoot his head off. So I felt so bad for like maybe this kid gets the call over the.

IS NOT I would make that bet do you know people who watch soap operas? I think these people are real and when they're out there like, Hey, sunny I don't want anybody that watches soap operas anymore. I honestly did not know that there were still wants usually it's kind of the last one is the last last bashing of so so personally when I've ever watched. Watching me for a year and she never watched it again, and now every day she looks on, does he still watching this thing I'm like I stay up late at night and watch a with murdering general hospital she's in the bedroom You know she knows I am a mess so she doesn't come out because she knows what's on the TV but yeah, she she knows I watch it. He's embarrassed of course disgusted with me I'm sure the kids are embarrassed to Don. Yeah. Come on they did they know they barely had anything to do with me when they're at home they were on their own lives. So yeah, they were embarrassed a lot twenty nine seasons give me in your mind and I know you have a lot what TV show stayed on too long. Now, we can obviously say twenty nine seasons with this buffoonery is too long. But what I'm going to give you one, I'm GonNa tell you when you're going to probably disagree but think about it. The office was on onto long. Yes. No I mean I, know. You're saying we're saying once he left right. But at the same time it was at the time. It was so high at the top like they had to stay on the end it when he was leaving but it just I think they just got to weird. So No, Michael Scott, you still liked it. I still liked it. I don't love it like the first six seasons with him. Yeah. I can pretty much. I could name every line pretty much every the last three seasons I watched some I still watch them but I'm GonNa they weren't the same you're right it was on. The definition of being onto. But that was circumstance that was your main character leaves, and then they just tried Wade's main character after I always said eight and a half men Kushner was horrible. You can't how can you have two and a half see I didn't even know no two and a half was on for eight seasons but country was horrible because she hugging top she thought it was gonna have laughs those the average per up two and a half men and you know another another one showed that I was a pretty good show. Early is friends that lasted to the season's wasn't my thing. A. I've seen some episodes wasn't our favorite show of all time I. Think it's your. He's one of our favorites of all time should seinfeld quit after. So No. In with Seinfeld, I went to the end and I will stand first of all I will absolutely fight to the death that the finale was good although. To know now, I'm GonNa Greasy about the court when they brought everyone basketball work. No matter what they would have done it what the people would have hated about it whatever. The is good and Seinfeld had the same issue where Larry David laughed. So one of co-creator is one of the main writers guys left. So for two seasons, they were without him and it got weird if you watch the last two seasons, the episodes are really really weird but they're still hilarious like so I I don't think that's too long at all I was Oh, the easiest one ever is actually funny enough me and Larry were just talking about it just before we came on here how I met your mother. There's a reason that it was on duty, Hauser? Kit. Yeah which so what happened with that show? I don't know how many people know the history of it was an amazing show but it was planned Alec they sat down before the show started and they planned out every season. This is how it's going to start going to go here here here here, and this is the last season, and then as they got to the last season, it was still the number one show and CBS like you need to do another season like no, the show the show is already planned. It's a preplanned ends now this is it. No you have to do another season. So the last season. A wedding weekend all in one season and it was it was shoehorned in because they already had the arc of the story and they're like, well, how do we make another season and it sucked? It was so bad terrible. So I would say that one stayed on for too long and then the other one is much as I. Love It. I think the simpsons is still on it is. I. Think in my good as I've watched it in a while. Watch it I. Love. The Simpsons must be watching it I liked. Caesar. Eleven. season. With. Modern. Family. I like it on Neil knee tended to have really hot people on that show sure that the to wise forget about it. modern family was ten seasons like that. I'm six seasons into how to get away with murder. Many seasons is that six I've got about ten Seville's left also. It's not a classic I'm GonNa Throw another one in.
