Fresh update on "jean" discussed on The BreakPoint Podcast
"Amy Conybeare it represents everything that feminists should love. So why don't they for the Colson Center? I'm John Stonestreet, this is break point. In the same world suggest Kathryn. Jean Lopez America would have just fallen in love with the Barrett family after all and Coney Barrett scholarly brilliance is recognized by legal minds on both the left and the right plus she's the mom of seven including two children adopted from Haiti her youngest child who has down syndrome is the favourite of everyone in the family she revealed in a truth said in jest when she accepted her nomination to the US Supreme Court has, Lopez, ass. What's not to love look it's a good question even for those on the other side of the political aisle after all baird is literal proof that a woman really can have it all align apparently. That more people say than actually believe as NPR's Nina Totenberg admitted in a recent profile. It's busy schedule her many roles, leave people scratching their heads and asking how does she do it so far critiques of Barrett have run the gamut. Some are understandable such as the complaints about how this process is proceeding electioneer or questions rooted in fundamental disagreements about judicial philosophy other critiques have been more uncharitable some even evil for example, a tweet issue over the weekend suggested that adopting children from Haiti could mean that the Barrett family are white supremacists colonizers. Now, the stupidest critique award goes to the suggestion that a religious group that bear it was connected to was the inspiration for Margaret. HANDMAID's tale turns out. It wasn't though to be clear. This falls under the category of irrelevant and pointless even if it were true and some critiques just reflect a straightforward anti religious bigotry as if Catholics who believe what Catholics have always believed are somehow disqualified from public service. The irony of these critiques is that often coming from the very same voices who spent the last four years telling Christians they aren't Christian enough. It's hard to keep up still at route there's more to this. Hatred than the legitimate disagreements and the debate inherent to the nomination process there's even more to it than just potentially being the third appointee of president that is despised by so many the savage incivility that's already being directed at Amy Barrett can be traced directly back to Roe v Wade as Kim Colby legal scholar Christian Legal Society suggested last week on our breakpoint podcasts. The decision to legalize abortion has poisoned our political system. It's escalated court nominations in particular to literal life and death issues. Just. Like the horrible dread. Scott. Decision. On Slavery Road deals with the very heart of what it means to be human and just like the dread Scott decision the court got row wrong more than one hundred and sixty years. Later, America's still paying the price for the court getting dread Scott wrong and in the case of row, the national cost and terms of lives lost families destroyed an a deeply poison dysfunctional system mired in a culture war as just nearly incalculable row is why Ruth Bader Ginsburg the fierce protector of legalized abortion in all forms including later term sex selective. and. Disability targeted abortions was a hero to the left and row is why amy conybeare it is the left's latest villain more specifically bear it represents a new kind of feminism one that doesn't come at the expense of children. One that doesn't require the rejection of the inherent goodness of a woman's procreative nature. Barrett's career has been built on her judicial genius while fully embracing who she is as a woman as a and as a mom by joining five other pro-life votes on the Supreme Court four of which seemed pretty reliable a justice amy conybeare it could indeed spell the end. Of Roe v Wade. However, it's unlikely that even if her confirmation means the end of row that that would mean the end of legalized abortion in America rather it would just be the end of federally imposed abortion in America in states such as California New, York Colorado Virginia and many others that have either already have or are trying to enshrine abortion as an unassailable right. The deadly practice would almost certainly continue. pro-lifers would also continue their very important work of persuading hearts and minds. Loving scared young women in their partners adopting presses, children, et Cetera et Cetera at the same time. As Kim Colby. Also suggested on the breakpoint podcast overturning Roe could be huge in that it could put to an end the kind of brutal divisive and cruel confirmation hearings that we have all become used to the furor over the president nominating justice forty some days before an election has nothing to do with constitutionality nothing to do with precedent nothing to do with principal, it has everything to do with politics a politics that has been deeply poisoned by the evil of abortion what any conybeare it is about to endure at the hands of Senate Democrats that's just living proof of that. For breakpoint I'm John Stonestreet..
What to watch for in the first Biden-Trump debate
"Debating Democratic presidential nominee drove by in their first face to face in the campaign, joining us live on the first Midwest Bank hotline. CBS NEWS White House correspondent Peter Mayor Peter Thank you for joining us from what we understand Joe Biden's been holed up with his briefing books and doing Mark debates in such President Trump Not quite as intense in terms of preparation from what we understand it is that is that true? Has he been boning up? Yeah, That's what we're hearing from the correspondents who are covering both sides. You know, Jean, this is the 2020 World Series of politics, but you know there's a pool every day, but the one that caught my eye is a political morning council pool that says 86% of voters say their minds are made up on who they're going to vote for it and just 14% say their minds could be changed. But you know that could be very crucial number and you have to know that both of these candidates are going to have Wisconsin on their minds. On that debate stage over in Cleveland, Peter what is the best way for the candidates to go about it? The president will tell his achievements. Joe Biden will talk about what he would do going forward. Yeah, You know, I think, Jane, you nailed it. There are risks, though. For both of them. Biden's going to need some thick skin to stay focused in the expected face of harsh attacks by the president on Biden. Sons, hunters foreign dealings with Now you have these New New York Times revelations that cut into into that, you know, saying that Trump was heavily involved. At least his businesses were heavily involved in in links to Russia. Biden allies would tell you that he can't afford to let those kinds of attacks on his son set him off. They hope by will stay focused. Above all. They hope he won't lose his cool. If Trump goes for the kind of personal insults that he likes CBS NEWS, White House correspondent Peter Mayer joining us live on the first Midwest Bank Highland Peter, There has been this Back and forth about President Trump saying that Joe Biden is on performance enhancing drugs. He wants a drug test and that Joe was slow and other things and Joe Biden saying, Come on, let's just go. You know, I'm ready for him going to show you how slow I am point being that President Trump has set the bar very low for Joe Biden to the point where some experts were seeing if Biden It is just merely average. He's going to look great in the eyes of some voters who maybe haven't made up their minds because again, the expectation set by the president is so low. You know, I've been covering these debates Jean going back to the Reagan era. And I can't remember the expectations being set this way by one candidate against another in Trump may have set a trap for himself by constantly raising doubts. About Joe Biden's mental state and jabbing it. Biden with Sleepy Joe tag, So the question over the debate stage tonight will be did Donald Trump lower the expectations on his opponent's performance? In this crucial face off. After all, Biden served eight years of VP. You know, he's had 30 years of Senate debates more than 30 years and and then all the debates he had this year, so You know, Biden has to be on his game. That's for sure. Tonight. Too Blunt these attacks from Donald Trump's Peter Fox News. Chris Wallace is going to be the moderator for tonight's face to face. And he says he is not going to be active is a fact checker during the debates, But how important is it for him to keep both of these men on time and to cut them off if they're not answering the question? Oh, I wouldn't want to trade places with my friend Chris, would you, Jane, You know it. Answer your question. I think it's very important. And as we saw in the 2016 Trump Hillary Clinton debates You know he His tactic is to constantly interrupt and try to keep his opponent you know, off off their topics on DH. Speaking of topics, Chris Wallace chose the topics for tonight. The pandemic, the economy of the Supreme Court, integrity of the election, race and violence in cities that hits home for Wisconsin and so many other places and the Trump and Biden records. So the candidates, of course, they're going to try to choose their own topics, a cz they go at each other. CBS

Apple's Beta Effect
"Have my notes, the Beta effect to talk about, and what that is is with with with going from fourteen fourteen to fourteen one, which we believe made for iphone twelve, and that's why we're not getting that. We also believe fourteen to was made before the final version of fourteen point zero and so when you update to fourteen point to. You can't use the new blood oxygen sensor APP on the Apple Watch because it requires your phone to have the version to do something with the data and so my watch on seven point zero watch os before was on fourteen two I couldn't do the oxygen singer tests I. Guess You have to accept the health disclaimers and stuff upfront right? That's probably and it saves it there too like the background. Readings where they go. So I think should say it must save on your watch before like if you're out and about without your phone, it's back into some pretty sure and then he just sinks him up. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So but it's like ekg where you've gotta you've gotTa have the version match up to support it and we need when you like started in the health app on the phone does it Does have that like. Explain urine like disclaimers like it does when you do EKG yeah I don't recall I. Mean there is an I button for information on the readout on the watch explains thing like ninety and above is pretty good. You've got kind of hunt for it to find that I think it should be like under the readout not at an disclosure button but I think. The reason is they didn't get medical sign off on the sensor because they call a wellness not medical, right? Yeah. So they have to be very careful about how they present this information and we respect about spending Keno after the show like. is kind of silly at the moment you just get this number and then you're kind of left your and devices about what to do about it but they haven't go FDA approved the weather you know the necessary. Regulatory. Accreditation they need to be able to make more defined choices like they can with Iki the cagey where if it does detect potential arrhythmia a directly sound on the screen you know go talk to your doctor about it like they don't have that same flexibility with with the blackhawks jeans and that's why in the event they would say like we aren't doing studies about blood oxygen and Covid, nineteen. The Apple Watch has a blood oxygen sensor lie they never would linked together because. The purchase self. So the the APP on the watch is very nice I. Mean we saw the animation from the event on seeing it in person it's lovely. It's blue and red. It's like blood arteries. And it as fifteen seconds to run it to do an like an act of measurement and. As you near like say three seconds it becomes it begins to form a circle of completion and it's just so delightful. How how looks You do see the last. Measurement in the APP itself. So if you go just launch it, you'll see the last say passive measurement that picked up. So you might say like when our three hours ago. And That's neat. So it's more data than than just here do or read out. Your readings to be like. Consistent enough that you think it's good because I've seen some reviews like I've been getting some resource I get ninety, six, hundred lights will have the place. So I don't really trust it. Yeah. Well. Not How to. Read. Out. That was like you're below ninety. And then I had one that was like you're you're in the ninety range than I would maybe be concerned but I've seen the rains be from ninety three to one hundred back to back tends to be pretty consistent for me. Washington Post. They had an issue where they tried different watches and bands and just could not it to work the right way have had that experience. Sensor depends on like your skin and You know. The Senate doesn't work if you've got tattoos for instance so. Different reasons and stuff like transparent basically. So it's you know. No Job for it. And if there was an issue like despite being review watched, that's the point of this talk about the experience I would mention in trust me. I mean lot with the series five hours of disinterested and reviewing because of an issue that had which I read about instead. Of. The. Battery Life So. I've been on this one fine. Yeah. A lot of people have have had shoes with seven on their existing watches having less better life than they had before I have had that and I don't know what the clear processes take restores instead of his new
Prepare for the ‘iPhone 12 mini,’ suggest recent leaks
"Well, according to. Apple, accurate leaker and twitter naming artists love to dream. What a guy. He's a poet he's a philosopher he's also an apple leaker. He says that apple used the name iphone twelve mini for the smallest of four models coming this year. We know the other ones will be called the iphone, twelve, twelve pro and twelve pro Max. The first apple mini product was the ipod mini I remember that little that little guy that little diminutive gadget. Two, thousand four what a cute little device that was breaks in the year after Apple. Introduced the Mac mini which has been updated a few times and then the most recent mini line apple added was the IPAD mini in two thousand twelve a whole cute lineup of mini products. Adding an iphone mini would help unify. Lineup with the IPAD. The naming convention makes lot of sense to although it would add a degree of confusion since the mini would pack a screen that's larger than the iphone se. But the is known for having the smallest display. That's I mean at least in tech circles with normal people maybe not but people realize it's kind of like its own separate thing. So will likely show off the IPHONE wind up sometime next month. We talked about that. If they do love to dream is right. Here's how it's going to hear how here's how it's going to go down. The size will be five point, four inch. iphone twelve mini the six point one, inch, iphone twelve and six point one inch I phone twelve pro and the six point seven inch iphone twelve pro Max surfboard addition. And it will come with a free pair of Kirkland jeans. Or Fanny pack whichever you prefer that you'll have a way to carry your phone wherever you go.
Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned. Wearing a face mask and public is now mandatory across Paris and many of its surrounding areas riot police units, and gendarmes have been deployed to enforce these measures. However
NPR Poll: Black, Latino Households Struggle To Pay Rent, Mortgages
"Some new data from an NPR poll suggests just how badly Americans are suffering economically during the pandemic. Here's NPR's Chris Arnold Gina Lost Her job as a school bus driver in Chicago during the pandemic she was managing. Okay with unemployment money. But then about two weeks ago, she got a desperate call from her adult son his job had laid him off. He wasn't able to pay rate. There was an eviction moratorium in Chicago, but Jean says the landlord wanted her son out anyway a warning what happened next is disturbing and violent. She says the landlord got someone to threaten her son and shoot his dog a German shepherd mix that he'd had for years Economi. His mom they kill my dog. And the GATT told me that he should kill me to. MSA. Said market you come over here. I went over there. I said, okay star packing you gather go. and. Never went back. Gene only wants to use her first name for fear retribution. She says, she was afraid to report what happened to the police, her son and his two kids if now moved in with her. Gene was one of more than three thousand people who took part in a poll from NPR the Robert Wood, Johnson? Foundation. And the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health. Her. Story is a sad and dramatic example. But the poll found many people reported problems with housing healthcare, unsafe workplaces, and a very high percentage of Americans. Forty six percent said they're having serious financial problems are surprises how large the? Numbers are Robert Blend in is a Harvard public health professor. He says, the poll was done in July after Congress approved an extra six hundred dollars a week in federal and apply benefits, and that was still supposed to be flowing to people and yet. So many people said, they were struggling one in six households even reported missing or delaying major bills just so that they could buy food blending says it's. Like the government sent a hundred FEMA trucks into a disaster zone but a lot of people never saw them or got any help it just like interviewing people in a hurricane area and the people are telling you, there's no relief it should be there could be some people are having trouble accessing the HAL blend says the government should quickly try to discover where the biggest problems are and there could be. Another factor. My name is Linda Neuron who and I was an accounting manager dorato lives in Phoenix Arizona and lost her accounting job at a tow truck company in the pandemic. Once that stay home order was issued if our driving, they're not getting a car accidents if they're not getting in car accidents, we don't have much of a business Dorato said in the poll that she was having serious financial problems when. She was getting that extra six hundred dollars a week and so she was doing. Okay. But she knew that that was about to expire and that she wasn't going to be able to support her four kids on the state benefits alone which for her just two hundred, forty dollars a week in Arizona and she was right. She's now burned through almost all of her savings and she won't able to pay reds after next month it's extremely difficult. To sleep at night I wake up at two or three in the morning and I just have my mind's just racing just constantly racing, and then I'm having to get up in the morning and sit with my two younger children but I'm so focused on you know bills and money and jobs Dorato who's Latina says she's been looking for work with no luck. She says she has no family she can go live with or borrow money from. And Black and Latino households were two times more likely than white families to say that they've fallen behind on their rent or mortgage. It is striking. It's not surprising. David Williams is a Harvard professor who studies race and sociology. He says blacks and Latinos make money than whites and have less savings. So they're more vulnerable Andy says they're less likely to have family members who can afford to loan the money for. Rent or other bills for every dollar of wealth white households have African American households have ten pennies and Latino households have twelfth pennies. So it's really not surprising that they are really been hurt badly in the context of the pandemic
Fed Cup to be renamed Billie Jean King Cup
"The Fed Cup has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup and there's those big plan fair announcements about this week and it's a lovely lovely thing I think it feels so so right there is I think one caveat David that you pointed out on twitter which. Which I very much agree with. How How how much does it really? Well first of all, I agree with you I think I'm ready that it's been renamed. That's The. Caveat was the if we are renaming the Fed, cut the Billie Jean King Cup. It feels even further away that we're GONNA end up having the the great mixed team competition or Fit Slam slammers I'd love it to be. A combination of the Fed Cup or the Billie Jean King Cup in Davis. Cup, that I think the sports so. Hugely needs that feels further away. But maybe maybe that's maybe that's not the case. Maybe the fact that her name is on it and she is may be involved more. We'll bring that closer together because she so much wants that is well, she's. The biggest campaign for. Men and women working together and and being on the same page and being on the same bill for goodness sake. and. Hopefully. That will come in the future I mean. There are those events just don't exist this year. So this is the news news, the renaming, and and that alone really really about just one article Chris Clare in the New York Times right timing done an interview it but a Jianqing, I really enjoy a recommended he coach Bud Collins. Once. Saying that the Fed Cup is a splendid idea with a lame name and he quotes spitting Jean King saying. When a woman does something always think we do it for women when a guy does something, they never say they did it for the guys and so one of the changes I hope I can talk about more and more is that I would like people think that we. Are Doing it for the sport not for Women's Sports and I I thought. Absolutely right. It's It's about time attitudes changed. Yeah I thought that was. A perfect summation of both what Billie? Jean King is about an also how how this could be a a way forward for kind of mixed event and and a combination of men's and women's. Competition together but I mean personally that that that's not been my vision for mixed team event I've I've not thought that it should replace. Davis carpet. Now, village Inking Cup I genuinely think that it could go along alongside them. Both I don't think you need to. Get rid of them and combine it into one I. Think you could have a mixed team event like we had with the Hoffman Cup but make bigger thing out of that, and now we've got that point in the calendar with the ATP Cup and that I think that's the point. Many Times. Cup. Turn. So. Many cups when you did all the cups said back to back, it's Oh it's cup overload kind feels to be redundant to be talking about the of the moment you. Know. What the tent tennis Kinda is anymore but I mean personally I'm just saying I think there's room the space. It would be a great thing for a mix team competition to exist alongside. The Davis Cup in now Billie Jean King Cup that we already have our cup runneth over. A. Carrillo.
Dr. Richard A. Van Etten: Cancer
"Please welcome to the show Dr Rick van how you doing. Thank you very much Andrew and Brittany I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be able to come and talk to your talk your listeners today. Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. So we're GONNA be talking about obviously cancer and how you can prevent cancer do your best to prevent it. But as I mentioned in the Intro, most likely someone knows someone who's had cancer or they've had cancer themselves even it's pretty it seems like it's touches a lot of people but can you kind of tell me how many people does cancer impact on a yearly basis? Well. Thank you for the question Andrew. The lifetime risk of getting cancer is approaching thirty eight or thirty, nine percent. So more than one in three Americans will get cancer during their lifetime. So that explains what you said that basically almost everybody is either been personally. Involved with cancer knows a close family member or a loved one that's been stricken by cancer. So some of the statistics nationwide in the United States, there's about one point seven million people diagnosed each year with cancer. And they'll be about unfortunately six hundred thousand Americans will die every year of cancer. Here in Orange County it's interesting that cancer has overtaken cart diseases, the number one killer, and as soon gonNA happen nationwide. So a very very. Prevalent disease what kind of has led to what's led to that trajectory? Why is that happening? Well, actually the the the death rate from cancer has been falling and it's been falling significantly over the past fifteen or twenty years, which is a success basically for the research that's gone into it through the National Cancer Institute and other mechanisms. But the fact that cancer is now the number one killer has actually also reflected progress in cardiovascular disease. So doing which used to be the number one killer. So we're doing a better job at preventing. Heart disease through the things that you know about treatment of the risk factors like high lipids, blood pressure, diabetes et CETERA. Right? Interesting. Okay. All right. So we got some work to do on the cancer and Kinda catch up. And, that generally, like I mentioned usually happens through education funding, which we'll talk about in a little bit What types of cancers are the most prevalent today? I know that you specialize are a believe in like blood cancers by what are the most prevalent that people run into so we can talk both about incidents, which is the new diagnosis that we have each year and prevalence, which is the number of people living with the disease at any given time. But the top four in both categories are pretty similar. So there's breast cancer which obviously predominantly affects women but also can affect men. Then there's lung cancer there's prostate cancer which obviously is a male cancer and the last one is colorectal cancer. Those are the big four. Close on their heels are diseases like skin cancer and melanoma that's particularly relevant for Orange County where we have two hundred and eight, hundred, ninety days per year rate. And after that come some blood cancers that I specialize in, which is mainly things like leukemia lymphoma and Myeloma Okay. What kind of leads to these types of cancers occurring out of those top four that you mentioned, what? What's the biggest contributor to people getting? Is it? Is it just genetics you got bad genes or something in your lifestyle or in your the world around you I guess causing it. So they're. Probably, equal contributions both from genetics and from lifestyle. Okay. When I say genetics I mean the cancer is principally in the opinion of a lot of primarily a genetic disease in the cancer cells have acquired mutations that contribute to their malignant or cancerous phenotype, their ability to grow and attack the body. Most of those mutations are acquired in other words they happened just within the cancer cell and they're not inherited. So you don't get them from your mother or your father. Now there are exceptions there are well defined cancer susceptibility syndromes the most the one that may be most familiar to your listeners is the bracket jeans Brca which segregating families particularly people, of Ashkenazi, Jewish descent that are inherited either from your mother or your father, and greatly increase your risk for developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer so that the risk for women who doesn't ever bracken gene mutation is about one about eleven percent or one in nine during your lifetime. If you inherit one of these genes, it's virtually almost everybody will get breast cancer ninety percent risk over your lifetime. So, this cancer susceptibility syndromes are very important the need. For instance when there's a new cancer diagnosis, you need to take a careful family history and in some cases be referred to a genetic counselor to determine whether testing family members is indicated. Yeah. Well, that's interesting that you bring that up because my wife actually we went through that process, and so she was found her mother had breast cancer and through that process they found out, she had the bracket gene Brac to and then and so my wife decided because they kind of give you choice like do you want to get screened? Do you not like you kind of have? Do you want to know more or or like not and stay naive to it I guess and so what I've discovered, we went through it and is interesting out of the split my wife got it and her sister didn't so the fifty, fifty there and. It. Seems like. It's I think my opinion is it's good to know because now they're just more aggressively screening her and is that typically the case when you find out about something like that, you're more your screened even more regularly than the average person should be. That's right. A change basically changes the surveillance. In it not to make it more complicated. But there are some genes like the broncos where the penetrates which means that the chance of actually getting breast cancer. If you have the have, the mutation is very high I think there it's pretty straightforward to decide whether to get screened. Right. There are other mutations that can be inherited that don't increase the risk that much increase it above the background, but it's not nearly as high and there it's more complicated to try to decide what to do about that. But. My advice to your listeners is to seek the advice of a NCI cancer center in a a qualified genetic counselor. Those are the people best qualified to help guide you through that decision making process right? Right. When you're going through like you said they ramp up the screening process if you had the genetic mutation but how does how did we get to discovering these genetic mutations I? It sounds like you kind of have somewhat of a background like you discovered or help discover this protein that was causing leukemia right and. How does that process even work? How do we make these discoveries? How do you make these? Discovery I was involved in is one of these acquired mutations not inherited, but it came about from studies done many many years ago actually nineteen sixty that showed that patients with this particular type of leukemia had an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells. And when to make a very long story short when that was tracked down, it was shown that the chromosome was actually an a Barrett. That was acquired in these cancer cells that lead to the expression of this abnormal protein. And that protein. Hasn't is an enzyme which means that it has a ability to catalyze chemical reactions. Okay and that particular reaction stimulated the growth of those blood cancer cells. So. That led a drug company, which is today is no artis to develop us a drug a small molecule inhibited the action of that protein. And that That drug which has the trade name GLIVEC revolutionized the treatment of that leukemia so that in the past everybody died of this leukemia, unless you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Today everybody takes a drug likely. And most people go into remission and when they do, they have normal age adjusted life expectancy. That's example would that's Therapy likely that can do to cancer right? So does this all come from these discoveries? Does it come from just? Tons of data over decades like this one you're saying, it came from research started in the sixties and this didn't have until the early nineties. Is that right or wealth the the The structure of the protein was discovered. I'm saying Circa Nineteen, eighty-four which I got involved. The drug development efforts took place shortly thereafter I'm and the was FDA approved in two thousand one. So it's been on the market now for almost nineteen years I and there are many many other efforts in other cancers that are parallel parallel that. The thing that's happened today is because of our new technology and the genomics and the ability to determine, for instance, the genome sequence very quickly that's accelerated the progress that we can make. So what took forty years from sixty two to the drug being approved now can be done in a couple of years. Wow. Everything's happening much much faster. That's awesome. That's great news for those of US living right now.

White House asked DOJ to defend Trump in defamation case
"Deal happens frequently. That's the reaction of Attorney General William Bar to criticism over the Justice Department's move to take over the defense of President Trump in a defamation lawsuit. E. Jean Carel, a former columnist for Elle magazine, is suing the president for calling her a liar. She claims that before he was president, Trump sexually assaulted her in a store dressing room. But because the response to the lawsuit occurred while in office, the justices Moment, says the president should be defended as a federal employee, Bar says all the criticism is just politics. This was a normal application of the law. The law is clear. It is done frequently, some legal experts say. While it's common for DOJ to defend federal employees, it's very unusual that the defendant is the president and that the incident in question happened years earlier, a judge has ruled the case can't move forward.

"jean" Discussed on Post Reports
"From. The newsroom of the Washington Post. All the. Awfully. Stephanie Permanent. The Washington. This is post reports Martine powers. It's Wednesday September ninth. Today, why the Department of Justice is intervening on president trump's behalf a case shaped economy and the future of Karaoke. Jean Gene. Is a journalist an author who last year went public with accusations that Donald Trump had raped her more than two decades prior in a department store. Carol talked about this accusations last year with one of our colleagues, reporter, Beth Reinhard, and warning that it's difficult to hear I not a knee. High enough. Push out and all. Right, I guess it was. A very short amount of time that he had penetrated. General against my will definitely Donald Trump was later denied those allegations. Idea who this woman in. The woman who also accused other than. That you know. A totally false accusations. Jean. Carole filed a defamation lawsuit against him. Essentially alleging that his denial was false and he was defaming her and us he owed her damages. Mansa. Petoskey covers the Justice Department for the Post. This kind of exploded into the news last night because as the case seemed to be on course for discovery and just proceedings in New York State Court. The Justice Department intervened moving the case to federal court and asking a federal judge to substitute the US government as the defendant in the case instead of president trump personally. So I think in order to understand why this is significant it's worth like thinking about how this would play out if this weren't the president like if Donald Trump were just regular donald trump and being sued by someone for defamation, how would this case play out in normal circumstances? Well I. think that's a complicated question. If Donald Trump were not the president and he were just a businessman with no affiliation with the government than this case would just proceed through State Court in the Justice Department certainly wouldn't get involved in a defamation lawsuit involving private citizen if Donald. Trump. Were not the president but he worked for the government, you might see an action like this. You know the Justice Department does pretty routinely intervene in state law suits when they involve government employees to kind of take over them. But the fact that this is now going to be playing out in federal court rather than State Court. Why are some people concerned about that? They're concerned for a couple reasons one the reason that the Justice Department is is asking to move this to federal court and is asking to make the US government the defendant rather than president trump is they're saying he was acting in the scope of his job when he made these comments saying the what Jean Carroll describes did not happen. So people are sort of outraged like how is that on the job? Conduct, why should Justice Department lawyers beginning involved? What at the end of the day is a dispute between two people about what happened two decades ago like how does that implicate on the job conduct? The Justice Department argues will court precedent says it does basically, if you're a federal employee almost anything you say or do wow on the job can count as on the job conduct. So we have to intervene here. The Attorney General actually just spoke at a press conference said look look case law is very clear. Because, we are a representative democracy. Officials who are elected. And answer press questions while they're in office, even if those questions relate to their personal activity. and could bear upon their personal fitness. is in fact, in the course of federal employment and can be therefore certified. Under, the Westfall Act and we have a specific case where someone was accused of defaming somebody a congressman and courts determined that count says on the job conduct even though it had to do with something going on in that congressmens personal life. But then presumably, if the president is going to be defended by the Department of Justice rather than by his own personal lawyers, taxpayers are the ones who are now paying for his defense correct sort of. So this has really been framed as like the Justice Department is defending trump and they are certainly making a move that is defending trump right like no matter what a court ultimately decide this is going to slow down this woman's lawsuit. This case was unpaced to proceed towards discovery and potentially a deposition with trump, and now the justice department has. Intervened tax payer paid lawyers have intervened to get involved and slow this down but they're not so much saying we just want this case to proceed and were gonNA. Stand in for trump they're saying we want to get trump out of this case altogether certainly, tax payers would theoretically be on the hook if the court grants the request to replace trump with the government in the defense chair in this case but really I think if they do that, it is a legal analyst would say it's likely step one to the case getting thrown out altogether. So this lawsuit was filed last year. Why is it that now the Department of Justice is stepping in and trying to change the venue and change the representation. That's a great question. I think legal analysts we talked to say that's kind of the most suspicious part of this typically when the Justice Department intervenes in cases where federal employees get sued in state courts, they do like right away when the issue is brought to their attention in this case has been going on. For nearly a year now. So what happened last month is that a court, a state court kind of green light this to go forward and AEGINA? Carol. Side was pressing for a DNA sample from trump to compare to some clothing that aging Carol says she was wearing during this in. Two decades ago they were also pressing to depose trump to interview him under oath on that. All seem to be encores and then the Justice Department stepped in her side says, of course, look this is just a bid for delay and you know no matter what a court decide you are gonNA, delay this lawsuit, the Justice Department's position seems to be look. We just got a memo from the White House and acted on that and that's how this normally works but..

"More nervous than ever. jean-claude drove back home to previous song. It was Sunday morning when he arrived by eleven am. He began to worry that friends might stop by if they thought the family was home. He drove his car to the parking lot of a shopping center and left it. They're trying to make it look like the family was out. He left a confession in his car scrawled on the back of an envelope. He walked back home running into the pharmacist on his way, they said hello to each other and passing. Nothing about his behavior seemed strange. John Claude seem like a man on a casual stroll. When he got back home, he put a tape in the VCR and sat in front of the television. For the next three hours, he recorded the programs playing on the TV. There was nothing significant about what he watched. He Channel Surf switching between sports and news programs. Until the tape was full, he apparently wanted to record over the previous contents of the tape. It's not clear what the tape originally contained. It may have been home. Videos of the family some later speculated that it contained pornography. Whatever the case Jean Claude never explained why he taped over these memories. Besides recording television, jean-claude also placed repeated phone calls to Karen. She finally answered on the ten try. They talked about what happened the night before. He, apologized for attacking her and again promise that he'd return her money the next day. He begged her not to go to the police over the attack because she believed that it was caused by his cancer, she agreed. After hanging up Jean. Claude stalled for several more hours until after midnight. Then he went up the attic and soak the floor and gasoline. He did the same in the bedrooms foreign gasoline on the bodies of on and his children. Sometime around four am. He put on his pajamas and started several fires in the attic and bedrooms. As flames crackled Sean Claude went into his own bedroom and took twenty capsules of expired barbituate. He found in the house. He could have taken the stronger barbituates. He had purchased from the drugstore, but he didn't. Perhaps, despite the suicidal thoughts, he claimed profess he didn't really want to be unconscious. After taking the pills, he lay down on the bed for a few moments and closed his eyes. Outside street cleaner saw the flames in the attic and called the Fire Department. When help arrived Jean Claude dragged himself to the window and opened it. The firefighters quickly discovered him and raised the ladder to his window. By the time, his rescuers reached him, he'd lost consciousness due to the pills and smoke inhalation. While he was rushed in an ambulance to the hospital in Geneva. Firefighters discovered the bodies of his wife and children in the bedrooms. An examination soon revealed the truth. They hadn't died in the fire. Florence's head injury and the children's bullet wounds proved that they had been murdered beforehand. Later that morning Jean Claude. Dunkel went to his parents house to tell them the news about the fire. Inside he found their bodies. The discovery left investigators with hundreds of questions, but the only man who could answer them Jean. Claude Vermont was lying in a coma. It wasn't clear whether he'd ever regained consciousness, or if the mystery surrounding his family's death would die with him. Coming up, authorities try to solve Jean Claude's labyrinth of secrets now back to the story. On the morning of January tenth, nineteen ninety-three firefighters meet a horrifying discovery at the farmhouse of thirty eight year old Sean Claude Remond. Amongst the flaming wreckage of the home, rescuers found the bodies of John Claude's wife Florence and his two young children. They had been murdered. The only one in the home still alive was Jean Claude himself. He had fallen into a coma after ingesting sleeping pills and inhaling smoke from the fire. While he was unconscious. Police learned that his parents had also been murdered in their home more than fifty miles away. Investigators immediately tried to learn as much as they could. About the supposed doctor, they wanted to know if he had any enemies who might have targeted his family when but as they looked into Jean Claude's background. They realized he wasn't who he seemed. He didn't work at the World Health, organization, as he had been telling everyone in his life for years, he had never even graduated from medical school. Everything about Jean, Claude. Remond was a sham. For nearly two decades, he had been terrified that one day. The truth would come out. But a few days after the murderers when he slowly regained consciousness. He had no trouble lapsing back into his habit of lying. When police questioned him in his hospital bed, Jean Claude invented a story that an intruder dressed all in black, had snuck into his home and shot his family before setting the House on fire. When asked about his employment with the World Health? Organization Jean Claude admitted that he did not work there. He claimed instead that he was employed as a consultant for scientific company in Geneva. However, he had no evidence to verify the claim and couldn't even prove that the company existed. Police questioned him for seven hours. He told lie after lie clinging desperately to his respectable image. In fact, he seemed to care more about his waning reputation than his dead wife and children. It's likely that his lawyer convinced him. That is deception was transparent. He couldn't lie his way out of the criminal investigation. Jean Claude finally confessed. After his arrest for murder. Claude was held in prison in Borgen breasts. France. Me Never, appear to be wracked with guilt. Instead. He seemed comforted as if a great weight had been lifted from his shoulders. He later said. I have never been so free. Life has never been so beautiful. I am a murderer I'm seen as the lowest possible thing in society, but that's easier to bear than the twenty years of lies that came before. For the next few years, he prepared for his trial. Psychiatrists regularly visited him in prison and diagnosed him with narcissistic personality disorder. These doctors found that he was obsessed with how others viewed him. Is Reputation was his only concern. He didn't know who he was outside of other people's perception of him. One psychiatrist report indicated that he will never ever managed to be perceived as authentic and he himself fears that he will never know if he is. But it wasn't long before Jean. Claude settled on a new identity, a man of God. In December of nineteen ninety four police took him to his farmhouse in previous song and asked him to reenact the crimes. While standing in his old home, the investigators replied a message that had been left on his answering machine tape. It was from Florence in the children. They loved the message during a summer holiday years before. In the message Jean Claude heard floor on say. Hi there, it's us. We arrived safely or waiting for you to join us. Be careful.

Even she believed that his main reason for coming to Paris was for research rather than to sleep with her. Jean Claude leader claim that a part of him long to tell someone the truth around this time. He rehearsed how he was going to confess and imagine how they might react. He knew he couldn't reveal everything. New that would make him a monster, but after fifteen years perhaps his lies were starting to get to him. Not long after he started seeing Karan, he stopped at the home of his friend for Medical School Lou Glad Maral. He was in a panic and told Luke. He was worried he was having a heart attack. After examining him, Luke told him it was probably anxiety. jean-claude then confessed to Lou about his affair with Karen. Luke. Who was close with? Jean, Claude's Y. Florence was angry. But he reserved most of his rage for Coron. He didn't think his mild mannered friend could have been the instigator of such an affair. He considered Jean Claude to be a victim and advised him to end the relationship. Jean Claude to friends words to heart in August nineteen, ninety, the thirty six old went on a trip to Rome with Coron. Their accounts of what happened on that trip differ, but they apparently came to an agreement that it would be better to stop seeing one another. Coron reportedly told him that she wasn't in love with him because she found him to sad. After his affair ended Jean Claude joined florins and the children on a visit to his parents house. His mood was sour. He was heartbroken over losing Koran and was more anxious than ever about his finances. His reckless spending in Paris was finally catching up to him. While staying in his home village Claude went into the woods when morning and trying to leap into a gorge, two is debt. But his fall was broken by some branches on the way down. He was not seriously hurt and at first told. The injuries were from a car accident. But later that night he broke down in tears in front of his wife. He told her he had accidentally gotten into the crash because he was so distraught. His boss at the World Health Organization had recently passed away from cancer. Perhaps because this explanation was unconvincing a few months later. Sean clawed then revived. From his past. Fifteen years earlier when he was twenty one years old. He had told friends that he was being treated for cancer. Now at thirty six years old Jean Claude told Florence that the cancer. and. He refused to let her accompany him to his treatments. Is Family thought he was just being brave trying to spare everyone the pain of seeing Kim sick. The phony disease gave him an easy excuse for the depression and anxiety. He really felt. It also allowed him to stop the charade of going to work every day, claiming to be too exhausted to go to the office, he passed the time at home. He often spent the morning placing phone calls to Korean and hanging up before she picked up the phone. One day she answered his call. After about four months apart, she led Shallan. Claude knew that she missed him. Suddenly their flirtation was reignited. jean-claude began taking trips to Paris to see her again. In January, they went on a vacation together in Russia, but apparently the trip didn't go well. Jean Claude acted secretive and standoffish a few days into the vacation Karinna announced that it was a mistake for them to get back together. They parted ways when they return to France. A few weeks later, he happened here from her ex husband that she had begun seeing someone else. Jean Claude was devastated. He reached out to her and tried to gain her sympathy by telling her about his cancer. This ad perhaps worked on Florence before, but sympathy wasn't enough this time. Current told him she only wanted to be friends. They seed in touch through occasional phone calls during one conversation Coron mentioned that she had come into some money after selling some property, she owned with her ex husband. She now had nine hundred thousand francs that she didn't know what to do with. Jean Claude told her he'd be happy to invest for her just like he'd helped. His relatives invest their assets. Coron trusted him. She handed over her money just like everyone else. The windfall came just in time for Jean Claude, as he was nearly broke.

She told Shawn Claude that she wanted some space. They both were prepping for their year end exams and she claimed she was too busy studying to focus on romance. Jean Claude was distraught. Jean Claude Stared at the drawn curtains of his studio apartment. He couldn't remember the last time he had opened them. He hated to be reminded that life outside was still going on. The fact that people were still going about their days. Oblivious to his pain hurt him. All the more his seclusion made him feel strangely associated from the world, and even from his own feelings. It was as if he wasn't a real person anymore. He had abdicated from humanity nothing he did mattered. There were so many things at once seemed important his routines. His studies has friendships. With outflow rants. They were all immaterial, and so was he. At the end of the school year twenty one year, old Jean Claude was scheduled to sit for his final exam. Up until then he had done well in school. There was no reason to think he wouldn't move onto his third year, but on the day of the Test Sean Claude never showed up.

She had failed her final exam. An had decided to switch her focus to pharmacology instead. Even, though she had used her rigorous medical course load as an excuse to end things with Sean, Clod, she didn't change her mind about their relationship after the switch and majors.

John Clouds, friends urged him to go to the police. He said he would, but never reported the incident. Years later Jean Claude would admit that the story was probably made up, he said. Of course I have no memory of an actual attack I. Know it didn't happen, but I don't remember faking it either tearing my shirt or scratching myself if I think about it I. Tell Myself I must have done that, but I don't recall it and I wound up believing that I'd really been attacked. Claude Unlikely. Lied to gain attention and sympathy from his peers, but he didn't just tell lies to trick others. He was apparently trying to full himself as well. Before I continue with John Claude Psychology. Please note that I am not a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist, but have done a lot of research for the show. According to the article pathological lying revisited from the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the law, the most commonly quoted definition of a pathological lie is a falsification entirely disproportionate to any discernible end in view that may be extensive and very complicated, manifesting over a period of years or even a lifetime. These lies can very quickly snowball. The author of this same article also state that the pathological liar may become a prisoner of his or her lies. The desired personality of the pathological liar may overwhelm the actual one. For Jean Claude, the lies or just beginning. In, the fall of nineteen, seventy five, the students returned to school to begin a new semester. jean-claude was supposed to attend his makeup exam, but again he missed it.

However David Ogle was going to be a witness in an upcoming trial, which meant he had a target on his back, so he had a firm motive to flee the country. That if she heard Ogle was leaving town. Maybe gene decided to escape with him. It could have been to escape Dragana or perhaps Ogle was another one of her many suitors, and she didn't WanNa live without him either way a few months after her disappearance customs agents in El, Paso Texas reported that they saw two men with a woman who matched jeans description. Sightings of the three continued throughout nineteen fifty in March. The trio were placed in Mexico, city. None of the witnesses could confirm the identity of the individuals, so the police couldn't prove that the group included gene and. Nor did they have any theories about who the other man was? Plus, these sightings all occurred after gene had already made the news, so the witnesses could have been influenced by the pictures in the papers. It wouldn't be the first time that someone saw what they wanted to see. In lieu of reality, and the police never received any more concrete evidence about the unidentified men and the woman. The theory that gene fled with gangsters fits her strange behavior. The night she went missing and it explains the Lai as she told her family. If they knew where she was going, they'd be endanger. But there's one huge flaw in the story. Gene would never have abandoned her daughter. Jeans desire to be a good mother is well documented after all in nineteen forty-six. Her husband won custody of Christine. If gene wanted to pursue glamorous life of romance, and start him free of parental responsibility, she had her chance, but instead she fought until she got Christine back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty eight. If gene plan to leave the country. She would've brought Christine with her. It's possible she didn't go willingly. Maybe she was abducted by Oh Goule or his associates. But that doesn't explain why. She lied about her whereabouts that night. Which means unfortunately. Jean probably didn't disappear by choice. There's something appealing about the idea that she lived a glamorous second life in Mexico. But there's just too little evidence to make this believable.

"Earlier that year gene had appeared as a background dancer in a film called Young Man With a Horn, starring Kirk Douglas not only was Douglas wealthy and influential. He took an unusual interest in Jean's disappearance. In fact, he called the police station before they could even contact him for an interview on the phone Douglas said he'd heard about Jean Spangler. In the news. Everyone in the southland had. But he didn't remember meeting her on onset. He told the police that he didn't see much point in meeting them in person since he had nothing more to say. Whether they were struck or just disinterested the police Douglas at his word, they thanked him for calling in and encouraged him to phone again if you remembered anything later on. A few days later, Douglas called back. He'd been talking to a friend about Jean's disappearance. The friend referred to her as the tall girl in the green dress. That description Douglas immediately put a face to the name. He announced that he had known her after all, he was calling back in the spirit of transparency now he said they had met on the set and kidded around. Kirk Douglas was an infamous ladies man, and like to flirt with his co stars. So. It wasn't out of the ordinary that he'd exchanged. Banner shows miles with gene. But he made it very clear that they hadn't gone any further than that. The two had no romantic relationship. Once again, the police didn't follow up or interview him in person after all Douglas had been on vacation in Palm Springs over one hundred miles away at the time of Jean's disappearance. Police Chief Brown accepted Douglas's explanation and never formally considered him suspect. Kirk Douglas was another dead end. Just like jeans, ex husband Dexter, Brenner, and her ex boyfriend, Lieutenant Scotty. All these men had potential motive and the means to make Jean Disappear. But since the police failed to investigate these men further, it's hard to say whether any of them had anything to do with her disappearance. And after Douglas's phone call, the trail went cold. The lack of thorough detective work also men that there was a lack of hard evidence since gene told her friends that she was pregnant, will take her at her word, but besides the note in her purse. There's no record gene ever saw Dr. around the time she vanished and no confirmation of the alleged pregnancy. But that isn't that suspicious? Abortions were legal and gene would have sought treatment with the utmost secrecy. That would also explain why your body never turned up. If a doctor botched the procedure, they'd have to get rid of the evidence or face arrest. But the problem with the secret abortion theory is that it doesn't line up with the witness timeline. Multiple witnesses spotted at the farmer's market, and later at a restaurant called the cheese box. It's highly unlikely jeans. Appointment was scheduled after two a m last time she was seen at the cheese box. Now. It's possible that she was at the restaurant to meet with an abortion doctor who never showed, but if he were a no show. That doesn't explain why Jean Vanished. Thanks to the cases media coverage, the tips kept coming in and one call to the police tip line suggested a more violent end for Jean Spangler. A gas station attendant named art. Rogers claimed that on the night of October seventh. The same night gene disappeared a man pulled up to the gas station in a blue-grey convertible. A woman sat slumped in the passenger seat. Rogers didn't get a good look at her because she ducked down like she was trying to stay out of sight. Before Rogers could ask any questions. The man ordered him to fill up the tank. He added. We're going to Fresno. When the car drove off, the woman turned and yelled to Rogers. Get our license plate number and call the police. Rogers did just that although at the time he didn't know why, because once he saw the story of Jean Spangler in the news. He noticed that her description matched that of the woman in the car. As Rogers, speculated to the police maybe Jean Spangler had been kidnapped. And the men who spirited her away, were some of the most dangerous in all of Los Angeles. Enforcers for the Mafia. Next police uncovered jeans unlikely connection to the Hollywood mob now back to the story. Jean Spangler was a twenty six year old nightclub dancer, aspiring movie, Star and young mother, but her story took a dark turn when she vanished on October, seventh nineteen, forty nine. Sadly, the police repeatedly failed to follow up on leads, but the media stepped in Jean. Spangler story was big news. The tabloids were also a fire with another unsolved case, the nineteen forty seven Black Dahlia murder. Some speculated that Jean Spangler 's disappearance could be connected to the black. Dahlia later identified as Elizabeth. Short both women were aspiring actresses with dark curly hair, and like Jean Spangler. Some think that Elizabeth Short was killed by an underground abortionist. Though it's highly unlikely that shorts, unsolved murder was an accident based on the way the body was found. If, that were the case. A serial killer might be the culprit, but police quickly dismissed the theory. They speculated that serial killers committed murders attention. They wanted their victims to be found. On the horrors of the Black Dahlia crime scene it would be odd if you been killed by the same person, but not posed in a similar way. Since jeans, corpse hadn't turned up. She'd probably met some other fate. We should note that this stereotype that serial killers want show off isn't universally true, and not all killers follow the exact mo for every victim especially when they're starting out, the fact that investigators were so quick to dismiss a potential connection is just one more instance where the lapd may have failed gene, but the police claim they had no reason to explore a far fetched theories about serial killers when they had more compelling suspects. The people who gene new personally. As the LAPD COMB through jeans, Rolodex they discovered a surprising connection between the vibrant socialite and the Mafia. In nineteen, forty,.

"Police called Sophie. She confirmed that the bag belonged to Jean. She had no idea who Kirk or Dr Scott were, but the LAPD immediately deemed them persons of interest. Since the handbag was found in Griffith Park. It was a natural place to begin the search. The LAPD recruited around two hundred volunteers to comb through the park, but simultaneously released a statement, saying gene had suffered a slight illness, but would return shortly as soon as she felt better. This the first of many instances where the Los Angeles police department minimized or ignored the facts of Jean, spangler disappearance. It's hard to say why they intentionally released misinformation. Maybe they didn't want to cause a panic over a possible murder or kidnapping. But maybe the police weren't that interested in finding gene at all as a dancer with a divorce in her past and multiple boyfriends in the present gene was anything but a prim and proper lady. It's very likely department officials didn't think that she was worth the resources to mount a proper investigation. Unsurprisingly the Griffith Park search didn't turn up anything useful. With. No leads the police interview gene's friends and family. Her Ex. Husband Dexter Benner said he hadn't spoken to gene in weeks. But Jean sister-in-law wasn't so convinced. After Brenner her gene was missing, he'd come over to pick up his daughter, Christine, but when he arrived at the House Sophie noticed that his face was scratched up as if he'd been in a fight. Better had a hair trigger temper. He'd abused gene during their marriage, and with his recent loss of custody. He had the perfect motive to eliminate his ex. Sophie and Jeans Mother were convinced he'd gone too far. So the police question banner as second time a few days after the disappearance. But he stuck to his story, he hadn't seen gene. The night she'd gone missing. He'd been with his new wife Lynn Lasky. She backed up his alibi. When investigators asked about the cuts, Benner said that he dropped a case of glasses at work. They'd shattered inches away from his face, cutting him. Since Dexter banners seemed like a dead end. The police saw other suspects. They turned their attention to another abusive former lover Lieutenant Scotty. Maybe he'd made good on his threat to kill gene if she ever left him. Scotty may have been the Dr Scott and Jean's note that there's no record of him ever being a physician. In addition he'd been out of genes lie for almost five years. There was no. That he'd had any contact with her recently, so after the police batted the theory around, they never bothered to question him. Once, again, a lead became a dead end when investigators dropped the ball. The police did however flip through jeans diary. They hope to find references to a secret boyfriend or some other possible suspect, but the Journal offered more questions than answers. The pages were littered with a bounty of names, men, women, ordinary, blue collar, workers and world famous celebrities. Often individuals were listed without context, so the police couldn't distinguish which were professional contacts in which were jeans lovers. There was no way to sort through the list once more. The officials dropped potential leads rather than investigating further, but the media was more than willing to take over the investigation for them. The unexplained disappearance of a young beautiful aspiring actress was catnip to journalists. Papers reported on every development in the case drumming up public attention. And while some of the more salacious elements might have scared the police off the trail. They made for flashy headlines that generated even more coverage like when gene's friends reveal that at the time she vanished. She was three months pregnant. Gene wasn't married, and in nineteen forty nine, the scandal of giving birth out of wedlock might have been enough to torpedo her. Hollywood dreams. It's possible that on the night of October seven gene went out to get an abortion. At the time abortion was illegal, so gene secrecy was understandable, and it fit with the vague note in her handbag. Dr Scott was a medical professional who performed the operation off the books. Kirk could have been the unborn child's father. With this new lead, the Los Angeles police. Department launched a more thorough search for Kirk and Dr Scott, they found dozens of physicians who might go by Dr Scott men whose first or last name was Scott. Variation on it, but every doctor said the same thing. They'd never treated gene. Of course, it was unlikely that any doctor would admit to performing illegal abortion especially on a missing woman. So the authorities sought out tips, where did women go for abortions? They finally identified amid school dropout who fit the bill. He went by Scotty or DOC. Scotty much like Jean. Spangler had disappeared, and as was now becoming a trend. The police just stopped looking for him. Maybe because a promiscuous divorce say dancer and an Illegal Abortion, provider Warren considered high priority. Or maybe because the company had covered up their trail too well, because the person who silenced them was wealthy and powerful. After. All gene had dated several wealthy and influential men. If a celebrity, politician or mobster wanted an illegitimate child out of the way he could make the pregnant Jean Vanish without a trace. The L., A. P. D. tried to narrow in on our Kirk and finally they hit it. After gene had been missing for some time. Her sister in law and mother admitted gene had dated a mysterious man named Kirk. The same name from the note in her purse. They'd never met him because he was highly secretive. This was especially strange since gene like to publicly show off her other lovers. It's unclear why Sophie lied about this before. Perhaps because she was solely focused on Dexter, Benner and firmly believe he was guilty. Regardless, a lead was a lead police scoured jeans Rolodex, searching for any man named Kirk with the motive and the means to cover up a murder. To their astonishment, they found an actor who fit the bill perfectly silver screen Megastar Kirk Douglas..

"All, she told a lot of people about Scotties, threats and violence. If anything ever happened to her, Scotty would be suspect number one. He was too smart to risk arrest by making good on his threats. Gene was right. She dumped Scotty and he left her alone. She thought she was free of the Nasty affair. That is until her husband came home from the war. In nineteen, forty, five banner was discharged from service. When he heard that his wife had cheated on him, he was outraged, even worse, she'd spend all of their money on her various both ends. Benner sue gene for divorce and for custody of their daughter Christine. During the divorce hearings, Jean moved in with her mother. Florence and sister-in-law Sophie there. She dug in her heels for the custody. Battle banner gene fought tooth and nail for Christine. Benner accused gene of abandonment since she'd moved out and left Christine in his care. The judge sided with banner, granting him full custody, but he allowed gene regular visitation defying the court. Benner refused to let Jean see her daughter on twenty three separate occasions. This petty victory cost him. Gene came back swinging, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, eight. She sued better after another lengthy court battle. She was awarded full custody. The judge dismissed banners criticism of genes lifestyle, saying that her job as a glamour girl was no different than any other career, and he cited Bener's history of abuse as another reason to deny custody with her daughter back Jean Spangler was on top of the world. She worked at multiple clubs and brought in enough money to support herself and Christine better yet. She felt closer to becoming a true movie star than ever before.

Sophie filed a police report, but the authorities didn't immediately start.

Later investigations suggest she may have fallen victim to a jealous ex, a mafia contact or a legendary movie star. Jean Elizabeth Spangler disappeared on October seventh, nineteen, forty, nine, supposedly after leaving and overnight film shoot. An extensive search was largely unsuccessful, uncovering her handbag and a mysterious note inside. Thanks to a botched police investigation and these baffling clues. There are three prominent theories. The first is the gene was murdered, and her body disposed of she could have been killed by a former lover, or maybe even her ex husband, who is still bitter over a lost custody, battle or gene might have died during a secretive procedure. We can only speculate, but perhaps it was so shameful or taboo. The doctor may have hidden her body to get rid of the evidence. and. Finally gene may not have died at all. She could have fled. Los Angeles to escape dangerous enemies like a wrong mafioso. Gene's family moved to Los Angeles in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Just as she was about to start high school gene soon fell in love with L. as modern sprawl and the promise of stardom. When she graduated from Franklin High School in one, thousand, nine, forty one. She set her sights on making it in Hollywood. Eighteen year old Jean was by all accounts, a charming and driven young woman. She worked several low paying jobs while she dreamed of seeing her name in lights, luckily for gene, her talent and her good looks turned heads. She soon began modeling for local department store, but gene wasn't content as a model. She wanted to be a star. She used Oliver Charm to make connections, but our big break wasn't which he'd expected. She was hired as a nightclub dancer at the famous earl. Carroll Theatre in Hollywood. Though the club was hardly a movie set gene appreciated the opportunity. Earl, Carroll was a prominent player on the sunset. Strip and his club drew in lots of well known and wealthy people. The GIG would certainly allow her to network gene relished the chance to rub shoulders with so many movers and shakers. Even if the club had sleazy reputation, and she used her charm to get to know the regulars intimately as a career started to flourish, so did her love life. She dated Dexter Benner. Who often frequented the club? He was a plastics manufacturer into recent USC graduate. Since he wasn't involved in show business. He didn't seem like an obvious match for the career focused gene, but the to hit it off. She was clearly attracted to his charismatic personality, but it's possible that she was also drawn to his wealth. The pair hastily married in one, thousand, nine, forty, two, only a few months after they'd met, and everything seemed normal at least for a little while. By, the end of the first year, they were at each other's throats. It was clear that Benner didn't relish the nightlife like his wife did. He hoped that once they married. Jean would settle down into a more traditional domestic life, but she wasn't ready to give up her dreams night after night Jean spangler out. At the club, she networked and even flirted with potential contacts. When? She came home sometimes well after midnight Benner responded with fury and violence after six months of abuse gene filed for divorce on the charge of cruelty. We don't know why, but shortly after submitting the paperwork gene dropped the case. The two stayed married, even though the relationship remained volatile, they even had a daughter Christine two years later. In. Those two years Jean hadn't gotten her big, Hollywood. Break trapped in a loveless marriage and caring for a new baby. She probably felt hopeless, but in nineteen forty four. She got some respite when Benner was drafted into the army. He traveled to the South Seas to fight in World War Two. It was common at the time for a mother, raising daughter alone to forgo her social life and take care of her child full-time, but gene refused to comply with society's expectations. In fact, she picked up even more shifts at the club and her social life became scandalous. With dinner out of Sidon out of mind, gene carried on multiple affairs some quietly and others openly. One of her boyfriends was in the armed forces. A man only known as Lieutenant Scotty. Scottie wasn't a great match for gene. To say the least he spent all of her money, an erect her car, and like Benner Scotty had a cruel streak. Gene regularly showed up to work with bruises and even told her friends that Scotty was abusive. But every time she tried to break up with him. Scotty got more violent for most of their relationship gene stayed with him because she thought she had no choice Jean, said that on one occasion. Scotty threatened to murder her. She figured he was bluffing, but it finally gave her the courage to leave him for good. After.
