"It's easy to focus on songs when the real issue was language. It's usually the focus on speech when the real issue is language. This is dr sanjiv galati speaking in asl through an interpreter. He's a child and adolescent psychiatrist at cambridge hospital in boston children's hospital and an associate professor of psychiatry at harvard medical school he coined the term language deprivation syndrome to describe the situation. He was seeing in his death. Patients patients who didn't have any exposure to language from an early age patients are referred to me that thought there. They have mental illness and one third have no mental illness at all. It's language deprivation so most of come with behavior issues related to not being able to understand processing emotions. They don't have names for them. They don't have Ways of dealing with society. They don't have the concepts they don't have the feeling of time or story or connection and it's it's very hard. It's hard work to try to reach them so it has to do with the mind that how it functions. How language works in the brain. The brain requires early exposure. So if that pop the brain is not developed as early as possible it then it will shut down you can measure it. So when they taught language they could see things names and things and builds the builds that part of the brain than that part of the brain which bigger but if that has no exposure the pilot brain shrinks and then affects how they live l. Everyone said that's deafness. It's not deafness depreciation. Many people know nome chomsky as a political thinker. But as a linguist he's most famous for his theory of universal grammar. This is what dr galati is referring to. Here it's the idea that each of us is born with a built in language system. We have this innate structure for grammar and all we need is exposure to language and then that mechanism starts filling itself in making sense of syntax and vocabulary but without that early exposure to language any language spoken or signed that mechanism. Never kicks into action. And what dr galati has found. Is that the result is brain damage. Doesn't matter if the person is death row hearing if a hearing person didn't have language growing up isolated it was the same issues would be shown between the two because of lack of language exposure. Once in a hundred years. They'll be someone in a hearing culture child who hasn't been exposed to language jenny. Her parents they would damage people themselves. They wouldn't talk to her. They would lock her in her room. They wouldn't allow her to go out and be exposed to society. S she exhibited language deprivation. Sobhi studied her. She became a scientific star sensation in the scientific community. Which i find very strange you can go to a school in any day and find fifteen people like her noticed. Dr galati says that about forty percent of deaf. People in america have some language deprivation and it can be traced back to this focus on speaking rather than on language always from the beginning. Always people thought said sign. Language would distract from learning spoken language. I don't know why people thought that most of the humans on the earth eighty percent after languages or more. My dad spoke seven languages. So why would you wanna teach one language but should forbids.

"My childhood whole. Where do i begin on that one. This is dan foley speaking asl through an interpreter. So i am. The only deaf person in my family and my family is bilingual. And they do sign now. They don't have perfect. Asl and so. They felt that that was it was best for me at a young age to go to an oral school in massachusetts and that school actually does have very strong relationship with alexander. Graham bell history. I was not allowed to sign in school as well as in the dorms. Now i was the only deaf student and so there was some other kids that were hard of hearing but i was the only profoundly deaf one guy just thought the teachers were you know they were the ones over the powers that be but they would get really upset at me or they would blame me if i signed and they made me sit on my hands and be forced to try to speak and if i did try to sign that would be punished just waving hello or something like that or pointing like over there. Or what's that or something. I would even get punished for that. Even if i was just using an index finger. Just a something. So i understand what they were trying to teach me. They wanted me to be able to speak fluently. And so on. But i wonder how i survived. Through that to be honest they would write and speak while they were facing the blackboard and they would look at other students and talk to them. So i had an fm system at the time. So it's like a box that you wear around your neck in it hangs right here and then you have earphones that go in and then i was supposed to able to liberate from there and then there was actually like a speech communication class And so that was something that i had to go to every day to practice being able to speak and i have a feeling what i suspect is have a very strong death voice and so when i would speak they would try to get me speak like similar to hearing people but of course i was profoundly deaf in. That was not something that i could do. So i would go to this class every day in practice and practice and practice so end i end to practice one word for five minutes four five minutes straight saying that word over and over and over again so it was very frustrating when left school and i transferred to the school where i was allowed to sign in everybody sign in their staff teachers and everything banton. Everything changed for me. So i was shocked. I was thrown off. Because i was so used to going to a hearing school and working on talking orleans and so on but when you go into a place in everybody signing enhance or flying all over the place. That's something that will shock. Anybody never seen that growing up and the amount of information sharing was absolutely unbelievable. So i was able to learn an extraordinary amount of information in a short amount of time. You know after not being able to sign for so long. Once i finally was able to something that was of great relief. I didn't have any exposure to defeat. Dolls deputies took what the hearing people told me as the norm. So i thought that this is the normal way that people were and we communicate and so on so i thought that that was just how deaf people kind of live so. I never felt any anger or any deprivation in that way. But you know once. I saw people signing and socializing and so on i when i started to develop that anger genuine anger because then i saw that actual access to communication so that was something that was very jarring for me. So do i blame it. Parents a little bit. Yes because why would they place me in a setting like that. When i could have been in death school what my parents said because we have discussed this at length but they were saying well. We tried our best like we didn't know what else to do like we were trying to learn sign at home and doing. They told us that that we shouldn't sign at home. But we did it anyways because we want to be able to communicate with you so you know that was also something that i didn't realize they were just trying their best. Buy sammy that school. And as a philosophy that comes down from alexander language and assigned for that looks very similar to the sign for sentence which means basically language is the making of grammar. It is the. How should i describe the sign. It's made in front of the body what it looks like is perhaps you could compare it to the shape of.

Seventy six which gained him great fame and prestige and he used that money and influence to fuel his real passion the education of deaf people. He was part of a movement called orleans and believed all deaf. People should learn to lip read and rather than use sign language. The impact of his work still reverberates today. Veronica simmons will take it from here. The reality is that learning to speak and lip read is easier for some deaf people and for others. It's impossible but bell couldn't quite wrap his head around that diversity and so he held up his wife mabel as his star pupil hughes. Katie booth of kids. Who who were held up the way mabel was hauled up a lot of those kids grew up and turned away from those educations in some ways they were grateful for the ability to speak because they did give them access to power but they found a home in deaf culture. Thought is a story you hear again and again and that ending of the story was never promoted that those people grew up with education's that were designed to keep them away from other people were designed to bring them out of community with each other and into community with the hearing and then they went out into the world.

"With deaf culture. You have that language the rich history all of those things kind of put together give you a sense of your place in the world. You know for a long time. I think people have wondered why people wanted to form a culture of their own. Why don't you just be part of the hearing culture. Why would deaf people want to be separated from the general public and it's not necessarily a separation but now when people talk about black people. Lgbt latino groups. It's all about identity and really that's always been deaf. People's discussion is our identity as deaf people and our place. Deaf people a place where we don't have to struggle where we feel equal where we feel safe but i believe alexander. Graham bell represents a specific view of languages and language that that view being that deaf children and deaf people should not separate themselves off and uses a different language but rather be part of the society that they were born into that. It's their responsibility to navigate that society through speech as opposed to forming a separate entity or language group felt that they should be able to lip read and to speak on their own which is quite difficult. Not every deaf person can learn to lip read. Not every person can learn to speak but bell never considered this bell never really asked deaf people what they want it. after winning. The prestigious volta prize from the french government bell uses the prize money to set up his volta lab where he and his team did experiments with sound but he also made space at that lab to pursue another area of research the genealogy of deaf he had convinced himself that the rena reproduction of deaf people was higher than that of hearing people and he became concerned that if left unchecked this could lead to a separate deaf race. He wrote a paper summarizing his views for the national academy of science and called it memoir upon the formation of deaf variety of the human race. One of his suggestions in that paper was that deaf people should not be allowed to intermarry the paper was distributed to congress and its liquefied the views of many people in the deaf community against bell in nineteen o seven jorge ditz president of the national association of the deaf said of bell. He comes in the disguise of a friend. And therefore the most to be feared enemy of the american deaf.

"Educations. There's a famous quote of bells where he says to ask. The value of speech is like asking the value of life. This really captures his dry for orgasm. He believed that the only way to live a full life was to speak. It was inconceivable to him that deaf people could live rich full lives without speech signing was seen as inferior partly because it was so embodied it with the victorian era the body with something to be controlled and restrained and so sign language just seemed well. We just out of control sign. Language is still suppressed and misunderstood. Today and organism is still alive and well but not everywhere. That's really a western problem. I've come to realize that. Westerners are really focused on deaf. Children learning to speak. If you go to areas like northern africa israel people in general are more willing to gesture with steph people. They felt it was their responsibility to learn and try to understand the other person but in western cultures people often panic when they are faced with having to gesture or they will get paper and pen to try to write with the deaf person that they've met so it's it's quite cultural as to how people handle gesturing.

"In front of the chest. I was a child. I my mother told me about him. This is katie booth. She's a freelance writer. Who teaches part time at the university of pittsburgh. She's also the author of the invention of miracles language. Power and alexander. Graham bell's quest to end deafness. I was always really mystified by the fact that my grandmother knew how to speak even though she couldn't hear and i didn't know why she would because sign language was such a clearly an easier form of communication for her so when i was a child and asking my mother about my grandmother's deafness which i was sort of confusing to me. She told me about alexander. Graham bell that he heard created this method of education in which deaf children were taught to speak and lip read and punished for using sign language. I remember just not getting it. I was just like why would you not use sign language In my family you know my mother. And i both signed fluently. My grandparents were daf and they signed my great aunts and uncles. Were all deaf. My cousins all signed. It just seemed really clear to me that sign language was powerful and empowering and that my family's seemed most selves when they were using it katie's confusion about her grandmother's relationship with speech came to a head when she was eighteen and her grandmother was hospitalized for heart attack. The hospital didn't contact us for several days and so nobody knew she was there. They didn't give her the means by which to contact us either and so she was just there alone for several days and when we finally found out she was there i you know took a late night greyhound back from college and we just started going to see her every day and fighting for her right to have an interpreter. She ultimately ended up dying from that heart attack. But i just couldn't shake it. I had just never seen my grandmother week. Like that and not just weak in body but week because of such a severe depression during a time when she so needed support and it just enraged me. And i couldn't quite understand. How that could happen but intuitively in this sort of like deep cultural way. I just i had something to do with bell. It had something to do with his legacy of oral ism and it seemed clear to me that if sign language wasn't served devalued language.

Why Do People Still Use Fax Machines?
"In eighteen. Seventy eight Alexander. Graham Bell filed patent for a history altering device called the electronic telephone. But what you may not know. Is that the patent for another amazing communication tool. The simile machine or fax machine was filed by Scottish. clockmaker named Alexander Bain three decades earlier. That's right fax machines predate even rudimentary telephones and with a cockroach-like likes survivability that makes very little sense from an evolutionary standpoint. The fax machine lives on beeping and wheezing up sheets of paper. The world over for example vaccine is big in Japan even today about half of Japanese families use a fax machine in their homes. The question is why to understand. Dan Helps to know a bit about the facsimile machines place in history. Although the technology had been around for decades it wasn't until the nineteen thirty nine New York world's fair that fax machines. I seized mainstream recognition in the United States there attendees stood slack jawed in amazement as they viewed images and text arriving from around the the world at eighteen sheets permit. The machines were simply too expensive for everyday use though even by nine hundred eighty two one standalone fax machines sold for a whopping twenty thousand dollars far too pricey even for most businesses much less individual consumers. It wasn't until later in the nineteen eighties that the cost of the machines dropped to a point that businesses and offices found them useful notably documents that required legal signatures copied signatures. As you can probably guess were a source of controversy for years as legal professionals argued about the validity of documents that arrived via phone lines however as court after court confirmed armed the validity of faxed signatures doctors lawyers financial gurus and other professionals began to rely on faxes to transmit paperwork all over the place thus thus entrenched in the workflow and minds of countless millions of people the late nineteen eighties saw dramatic rise. In the number of fax machines. America had only around three hundred thousand contraptions in the middle of the eighties by nine hundred. Eighty nine there were more than four million. The Fax Machines Heyday was at hand. They even featured prominently in pop up culture. The one thousand nine thousand nine Scifi comedy back to the future part two explorers a future where the mic fly family had a fax machine in every room so the facts in process is one that billions of people have ingrained into their consciousness place assigned document in the machine punching the destination phone number. Hit the green button and minutes later. Your paperwork is in the hands of a colleague on the other side of town or on the other side of the world assuming that the fax machine has paper the cartridge is not out of ink and nothing has gotten stuck in the transmission transmission process but in the mid nineteen ninety s another history changing technology exploded and use the internet which provided people with ways aged instantly. Send text pictures and documents without these of paper with the coming of widespread e mail. It seemed that fax machines were doomed. Only they weren't aren't in two thousand seventeen study from market intelligence firm. IDC showed that the four major industries that are still using faxes Those industries being manufacturing factoring healthcare finance and government all predicted increased use of faxing over the next two years averaging twenty five percent increase. So why is that hat. Faxing is familiar technology that people trust the complexities of the Internet and its many offshoots technologies along with endless headlines about hackers spyware aware viruses and data breaches create in many people's minds. A sense that the web just isn't secure. In addition government policies still encouraged faxes and legal processes like discovery of evidence. Lean heavily on paper documents. Doctors backs prescriptions and private documents and patient records fax machines. are a habit and it's a habit that is hard because it's a simple low tech interoperable system that anyone can use just a few minutes of training also fax x machines like the aforementioned roaches are evolving with the times the people surveyed by. IDC said that the biggest reason for the increase in faxing was axing was now integrated. I graded with email as digital faxing and so was easier to use A. We spoke by email. Todd Johnson DR at Access Family Medicine in Lincoln Nebraska. Aska he said `I office notes prescriptions lab data orders and consultation requests affects anything else. It's requested I would email just as easily but I don't have a general email account to send the requested information to typically usually. I'm only provided with fax number to return requested information. Johnson Johnson says that the newest generation of digital faxing mixes workflow fairly easy quote. I don't use a feed and fax paper machine. I can facts from any of my computers tablet habit smartphone. I use them because I'm requested to use them by other facilities they're easy to use and now electronically configured into my phone system. I just drag and drop a pdf into the fax x Portal and away.

Why Youre Bad at Fact-Checking, Reducing Anxiety with Horror Movies, and Why Urine is Yellow
"Today. You'll learn about an illusion that shows how your brain processes information white peas yellow and how watching horror movies can help reduce exile eighty but satisfy some curiosity on the award winning curiosity daily. We've got three trivia questions for you. Are you ready question one? How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark question to what's the nationality of Thomas, Edison? The inventor of the telephone question three. What were the first words uttered by Louis Armstrong when he set foot on the moon? Let's recap and see how you did. How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark you said to? But Moses didn't take animals on the ark. That was Noah for number two. What's the nationality of Thomas Edison, the inventor of the telephone? You might have said American, but Thomas Edison, didn't invent the telephone that was Alexander Graham Bell. And what were the first words uttered by Louis Armstrong when he set foot on the moon? Your answer might have been one small step for man. But that answer is a giant leap. Louis Armstrong is a legendary trumpet player whose name is actually pronounced Lewis. Well, he he pronounce his own name Lewis. Yeah. Let me go. Neil Armstrong was the first man in the moon. So why did the questions fool you? It's all in how your brain processes information. This bit of trickery is called the Moses solution, and it shows how bad you are at picking up on eyars in your everyday life. Researchers I came up with it in one thousand nine hundred eighty one study where more than eighty percent of participants missed the problem with the Moses question studies show that illusions like this can lead people to pick up false information about the world's. Fortunately, there's one way around this. When people are asked to play facts checker and correct errors as they read their much less likely to pick up false information than people who just read what they're given. The takeaway is that if you assume anything you hear or. Or read could be wrong than you'll be more likely to notice when it is. But you can rest assured that we check all our facts on this podcast, the award-winning curiosity monthly we all see the same sky and ask why is the sky blue? But we also all go to the bathroom. So how can we never ask? Why is our P yellow lucky for you? We're science nerds. So we've got some answers, and they might tell you something about your health long story short urine his yellow because of a chemical called euro billon or euro chrome. Here's the deal. Your body has a massive amount of red blood cells. But they don't last very long before the need to be washed out of your system. Even after they've passed their expiration dates red blood cells contain iron, white blood cells gobble up that iron to keep it in your body. And then they did that ex red blood so rapper that's called Bill Rubin. Some of that Bill Rubin heads, dear kidneys, your kidneys. Suck out valuable nutrients and transform that Bill Rubin into a molecule that happens to be yellow the. Mount of water in your body can dilute that chemical which is why are urine can means from crystal clear to a deep amber color, so very generally speaking. That's why the more clear your urine is the more hydrated. You are if it's deeper yellow or amber or Honey coloured, then you might want to hydrate a little more, and if it's neon yellow, then you might have excess riboflavin in your system, which means you probably just popped a multivitamin or you drink and energy, drink, really. Yep. Other non yellow colors or possible. And we are not medical professionals. So don't panic, but you might want to see a doctor if it comes out brownish pink or reddish, orange or even blue in green. That's actually a thing that can happen with certain rare genetic diseases and fizzy nece or foaming this can happen sometimes too if it's just fizzy once in a while, then it's probably a harmless hydraulic effect. If it's regularly foaming than it could be kidney problems or excess protein in your diet. say a good horror movie to stimulate your next date night.

Mark Twain: great novelist, horrible investor
"Twain also invested a lot of money throughout his life though, and he is the first person who's big investment mistake Michael told us about, and actually in the case of twain, it was more than one he made every mistake in the. He was addicted to entrepreneurs. He would fall for anything. He would back any idea. He dabbled in stocks and silver mines, and gold mines. And he just everything he touched, went south twin was like an early version of a venture capitalist. He invested his money in a bunch of new kind of faddish ideas except he was terrible at it. He put his money into milk powder, extract railroad stocks a startup insurance company. They were all disasters and the one big idea that he chose not to put his money into you that he passed up when you had a chance. Alexander Graham Bell telephone, oh, which would have made twain a fortune between biggest mistake. Michael says, might have been throwing a lot of money at this big typesetting business, and it had to do with this machine. The twain hoped would be used by newspapers and publishing companies and twin kept investing more and more and more money in this typesetting business, even as its loss. Were just piling up on his biggest mistake was that he didn't know when to say no moss. I'm not going to continue to fund this really bad investment. Why do you think he could not walk away a, he was human and we all have our our flaws and limitations, and there's something called revenge trading where if you lose money in a stock, you want to win it back the same way and he just could not control himself. And I think that a an underlying theme in this book is that discipline and self awareness is a lot more important to determine your long success than just ro IQ, revenge. Tradings like the worst sequel to a movie ever. Trading revenge, trading revenge of the trader. Poor Mark Twain. Yeah, twain ended up losing an amount of money on that typesetting investment that would be the equivalent today of millions of dollars, but not knowing one to cut. Your losses is actually not the only lesson that we should take away from the story of Mark Twain's terrible investment record. There's another lesson which is at you can be amazing world class at this one thing. Just like Mark Twain obviously was at writing and still be terrible, horrible hopeless at another completely different walk of life like investing or that you can be really bad at investing and still be a really wonderful human being a light in the world gift to the country, all those things. And just I like that change the perspective. Very nice, right. And just like just maybe just, you know, put it in index funds, just put it in index funds next up the oracle from Omaha himself.
