New York City Will Again Delay Start of In-Person Classes for Most Students

"Yeah, Big news Just now. New York City is delaying the return of in person learning for most public school students, K 25 and K 28 students are now scheduled to return to the classroom. On September 29th not this coming Monday as originally planned. Middle schools, high schools and secondary schools will come back on October 1st remote learning for all students will still begin on Monday. Mayor De Blasio says the postponement is disheartening. But necessary. This is a huge undertaking. It is difficult is challenging. It's not the easy way it isn't had, in fact, the hard way, but it's the right way. The city's Department of Education is adding 2500 more teachers to try to make up for a shortfall in staffing. Three K pre K and a district 75 special education classrooms will still reopen. For in person Learning on Monday, and W N Y C is Jessica Gould is here with Mohr on this surprise move. Hey, Jessica. Hi, David. So, just yesterday, the mayor insisted schools were opening on Monday. The 21st. And I guess they still are. But this is a big change. Tell us what you learned. Right? So you just went over the major changes. I have to say. When I tuned into this announcement today, you could tell from the mayor's 2 M that something big was coming and I got a pit in my stomach immediately And after all of this insistence that we were full steam ahead. Of course we're going to open fully on Monday. Now we know we're going to be phased in on Dyken tell you a little bit about why mostly, it comes down to staffing issues. So the issue that has come up repeatedly with principles for months now and you know parents started seeing it yesterday is that there just aren't enough teachers to cover the Blended learning and the remote learning so in person at home, and then the days that kid's air at home when they should be when they're in school, you know, part of the week those air three different categories, and they just haven't been able to make the numbers work. And so now there's more time Tio get those other teachers that they've hired and dispatched out. On board did to bring on more substitutes. Basically what the head of the teacher's union and the head of the principal's Union said was You know, because of this, it just wouldn't be safe to open school fully on Monday. This was done in partnership with the principles and the teachers union this delay and and that's what they think they're going to get from this extra time that they'll be able to deal with it. The staffing shortages and It's not that much extra time. Right? I mean, exactly. This has all been on such an expedited schedule. But it is more time. Andi think the other thing is that you know, all week. We've been hearing from teachers who've been working outside protesting, saying that conditions aren't safe. The head of the teacher's union, Michael Mulgrew says there's been a lot of improvement on P P E and the ventilation systems are getting better. But that's another thing that this extra time will allow.

Ice Age Temperatures Help Predict Future Warming

"How. Much colder wasn't at the peak of the last ice age that's a question. Scientists have been trying to answer for decades, and now they have a new best guess eleven degrees Fahrenheit. That's a lot especially considering it's a global average parts of North America. We're much colder first of all large areas of the northeast were completely under ice. So that would have been pretty chilly wouldn't be living there but even here in the West right where we weren't covered by an ice, she would have been something like twenty degrees. Fahrenheit Lower Jessica tyranny a Paleo climatologist at the University of Arizona tyranny and her colleagues spent years compiling information about. Earth's climate at the height of the last glacial period about twenty thousand years ago. So we obviously don't have to Ramadan in the glacial periods. So we have to instead look for these kinds of standing indicators. One kind of stanton is plankton that lived in the ocean and got preserved in marine sediments. Scientists use these fossils to infer past ocean temperatures by studying changes in the chemistry of their shells and in the kinds of fats and other compounds they produced. Tyranny and her team then combine these data with a climate model to give a full picture of glacial conditions. It's actually technique us every day whether forecasting. What's new is we're using it for the past not the future. So we're actually hind casting if you will rather than forecasting the study is in the journal Nature. The findings suggest that the last ice age was significantly colder than scientists thought and that matters today the reason that. We want to know how cold last ice ages beyond the fact that it's just a cool thing to know. Is that we can actually use it to understand a quantity called climate sensitivity climate sensitivity is a measure of how much the planet warms in response to rising greenhouse gases. In this long ago case, we know how much carbon dioxide concentrations increased between the last ice age in preindustrial period from air bubbles trapped in ancient ice, and now we have tyrannies new results on the temperature difference between glacial and interglacial conditions. Together, these data suggest that low end estimates of climate sensitivity in which greenhouse gases don't cause much warming are unlikely to be correct if we have low climate sensitivity than than, we would be less worried about what all the missions are going to do. And so we can kind of rule those those possibility out know I suppose that's that's not great news.

The city says it was necessary to have a minimum number of workers on the pier to do the work, even though the pier was unstable.

Why Do Dogs Have Tails?

But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

Why Do Dogs Have Tails?

"I'm Jane Lindholm On this podcast, you ask the questions and it's our job to find interesting people to answer them. In this episode, we're talking all about dogs. Now, if you WANNA learn about cats check out our companion episode that episode includes some amazing facts about how cats communicate with humans in a special language they make up with their own individual human family. But in this episode, we're going to stick to barks instead of meows. Lots of your dog questions had a common theme you to know about some of the ways that dogs are different from humans. Jessica Heckman is a veterinarian and a dog researcher and she has a blog called the dog Zombie because she's obsessed with dog brains studying them not eating them anyway I. Guess You could say she's a dog scientists and she's here to answer your questions. Our first one comes from Margot who is five and lives in Amherst Massachusetts. Why did Adopt Tales That's a great question Margot whenever someone asked a question about why does one type of animal look one way and is set up one way and why is another type of animal built a different way the way I like to think about it is talking about that difference why? Why what we use it for? So dogs ancestors, wolves, ancient wolves had to run to catch their dinner and tales helps them balanced when they ran so that was they had them back. Then and dogs some dogs still do have to run as part of their job, right? Like she herding dogs have to do a fair amount of running but dogs also use their tails to communicate. So that's another good reason they have tails. They don't use noises quite as much to communicate as humans do but they use body language a lot more than humans do. So with dogs a tale, it's really high means I'm confident a tale that's held low means I'm. Nervous a tale that's really clamped rate underneath there but means please don't smell my but right now and also I'm really scared and then a wagging tail something all really familiar with because it can mean that the dog is happy but also you can see it in angry dogs I would just caution you to be really careful when you see a wagging tail overall, we try to look at the whole dog, not just the tail to interpret body language but the tail. Is definitely a very important part of the dogs tools for speaking why might dog wag its tail when it's happy or when it's mad? Why would drag tail for both possibilities I think from the dogs perception that they might be seeing something different from a wagging tail than we do. They have this very complex set of tools that they use in body language and we as humans because we're not dogs. We just have trouble fully interpreting that and so I think that. A. Wagging. Tail. It might look a little bit different to them with the dog is happy than if the dog is angry and we as humans might just not be able to perceive those differences. And sometimes, I think a dog who is angry or alarmed or considering that they might possibly by you will wag its tail almost as an appeasement gesture to say like Hey I'm not a threat I'm not don't hurt me but they might still be thinking I'm kind of scared of you and I'm prepared to bite if you come any closer. So it's just It's just always important to look at the whole dog to look at his face and his eyes, and you know how he's holding the rest of his body and not just the tail hello money aller five, six years old I live in Falls Church Virginia and my question is why thumbs up partner Paul. Hi Alex well I think dogs have their thumbs up on their paws to keep them out of their way because they are basically walking on their hands rates they're using their four limbs for something differently than what we use them for horses by the way have taken this to extreme they walk just on the tips of their middle three fingers. Into hooves. So I almost feel like it might be a better question to say why are human thumbs so far forward rather than why our dog thumb so far back we're actually the ones that are unusual. Because humans and other primates like monkeys and apes we have this unusual hand that we use to hold things because we evolved to climb rate, and so we would use our hands to climb up a tree and then humans are thumbs are are even more different than in other primates because we have these very complex hands that are good for really delicate work like holding pencil and things like that. So we're actually the unusual one but yeah, they they walk around their paws obviously and they don't want their thumbs to get in the way.

Kids on the Case

"Always. Just naturally curious like I've been a natural investigator, my entire life. This is Jessica Maple back in two thousand eleven. She was finishing sixth grade and starting to make plans for her perfect summer and what she really wanted to do was go to a policy debate camp, and then my mother said Hey Jessica I just got an email from the school and the county is going to have a junior district attorney camp. Jessica was annoyed that her mother assumed that district attorney camp would be anything like policy debate camp. She was twelve and I'm just like mom I'm not into this type of stuff. So I don't WanNa go and she's like will you're going anyway so Upset and Soleil went that first day. For Here's District Attorney Paul Howard has led camps for Atlanta's middle school students. Campers don't swim or canoe or make friendship bracelets. They spend their days, a police stations and observing criminal trials. They have to abide by the junior da Creed on the first day of camp, each camper is a shoot a uniform. We had this giant oversized kind of blazer was a police badge. We were khaki pants and Paulo's. So we are all matching and you know we had the district attorney come in and then some of the attorneys that he works with and they're saying, hey, everybody welcome to junior district attorney camp, and at the end of this camp, you guys are GonNa be like, district. Attorney's. Jessica loved it everything about did every day after her camp? Her mother would pick her up and Jessica would tell her who she met and what she learned. But one day she got in the car and her mother was upset and then she explained to me that someone broke into her grandmother's house and we don't know who did it. They took a lot of things and so she was really upset because that's actually where she grew up. She held a lot of memories there and it just was really upsetting to her because. It's just having someone invade a space that special to you is very emotional. When Jessica's great grandmother passed away years earlier, the family kept her house in the small town of Fitzgerald Georgia exactly how she'd left it. Until someone broke in and took everything her dining room set was gone her washer and Dryer was gone her sofa was gone. Somebody took her like Crystal Vases They took her record console the bedroom sets were gone. It was pretty empty. It just looked like somebody came in and moved out her washer and Dryer Washer and China. Yes and the oven too. Jessica says the police officer told her mother the odds of finding the person or people who did this weren't good. He sort of insinuated the family was at fault somehow, and the police officer was just like, did you guys give anybody a key because it just looks like somebody had a key because there's no force points of entry or anything, and it just seems like. That's the only thing that happened here. After. The police left Jessica and her mother stayed behind giving everything another look I actually went around the side of the house where the garage was and by the garage door windows, there were three little fingerprints I remember junior da camp was like, oh fingerprints this is definitely some evidence. So we can send this off to the guy and then we can find whoever broke into my grandmother's house.

Those Cases of people trying to become a race that we allegedly hate and that doesn't seem. Not a great strategy. If in fact we are who we say we are well, it was funny because like I said August was the first person to send me this article and I got many after that and he made some joke like Oh must be a friend of Gina's well I said I it's not that big of a community. In Kansas City, I promise you I know someone who knows her psych I text, my best friend, my oldest friend from Kansas City and I said what's the deal that the name sounds familiar? Do We know her? Yes, she went to our synagogue she's so and so's niece She was a few years behind us to sit in front of us at snuggle. while. You Go. It's a small town in Kansas City.

I can listen to a guy speak about the civil war who didn't participate in the civil war needed to be reacting I'm old fashioned that way like I just feel like you can talk about Black Studies Chicano Studies. You may speak about that like you speak about any subject yes. Right. We're all you got CAESARIA coming on soon but like some of The best analysis about sports football regular are not from guys who played the game. You know what?

Is it the chicken or the egg? I would be shocked I mean, that would be a way bigger story if she felt like soul man like had to become this person to get this job than it would be like this undercover story and it would be totally different. This seems from just just a few paragraphs that this is she wanted to identify an Oh, I, would get a job doing this and she said I'm not a culture vulture I'm a culture leach. This kind of her may call. Yeah. Well. But if you think about it, if we live in a world where we're really getting granular about people's heritage and it turns out that you're kids got a better shot at getting into a better college if they have a little native American blood in them or little Hispanic or little something, it makes sense. A lot of people are going to be checking that box when they're filling stuff out like there's going to be. We are giving people in that. Arena that the college campus if we're saying. We are going to lower the admittance standards. If in fact you have a little this in your heritage.

'Mighty mice' stay musclebound in space, boon for astronauts

"An update on some muscular mice who spent a month on the international space station. NPR's John Hamilton reports that these mouse tre knots were part of an experiment that may show how humans can stay strong during interplanetary voyages. Without Earth's gravity, muscles and bones could get weak fast. So astronauts on the space station spend two hours a day exercising. Back in April. Jessica mere, Andrew Morgan even made a weightless workout video. This next exercise is cardiovascular exercise with T two treadmill to Bundy's. My Artists are holding me against the treadmill. Pretty fun to have an extra spring in your step. Intense exercise reduces bone and muscle laws but doesn't stop it, and that's a problem if you're headed for, say, Mars. So in December, researchers set some very special mice into orbit. Some of the mice were just along for the ride. Others got injections of a drug that in activates two substances that occur naturally in the body. They're called myostatin and active in a and normally their job is to limit the growth of muscle and bone. Dr Se Jin Lee of the Jackson Laboratory says when they reached the space station, all the mice got lots of exercise. Once they get up there, they've become very active, and in fact, they have a name for race tracking because they're you know, running around quite a bit. After a month in orbit, the mice splashed down off the California coast and were rushed to a lab in San Diego. Lee says normal mice that did not receive any treatment lost more than 10% of their muscle mass. And he says bone loss was an even bigger problem. They lost a substantial not a bone in space. And then even after being on Earth. They actually continue to lose a little bit more bone mass. Lee says the mice that got the drug did much better. The drug was effective, not just in preserving the mussel mess and bone mess that was being lost. But actually caused the muscles and bones to grow. The drug also reversed muscle and bone loss in mice that got it after they return to Earth. Dr. Emily Jermain Lee of the University of Connecticut, says a human version of the drug could help both astronauts in space and millions of people on Earth. That would be a miracle. For a person, either with primary bone disease, primary muscle disease or a combination. But Jermain Lee, who is married to Se Jin Lee cautions that so far the treatment has on Lee worked in mice. They had a phenomenal response to the drug without apparently any bad side effects. That's Not necessarily something that we could extrapolated to humans, but she's hopeful and says experiments on people are underway. The research appears in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Unsticking from a Busy Mind with Jessica Borushok

"Hey, guys welcome to not another anxiety show. I'm your host Kelly Walker and joining me today is the busy mind psychologist Dr, Jessica Abortion who helps people get unstuck from their busy minds. So they can be their best stuff. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thanks so much for having me. I'm so excited for this conversation I know. People are GONNA love it. It's GonNa be very valuable at least. I know it's going to be valuable for me. Valuable reach. In and Now I was hoping. Can you can you start by telling us a little bit about what a busy mind might look like because I imagine it can show up in different costumes that were not necessarily aware of at least I. Know I was. Of course, I mean, listen our minds are sneaky and a lot of times. We don't know when we're kind of caught up in our head or caught up in that that pattern of just getting sucked down that rabbit hole busy minds I like to think of it as if you're having those moments who anytime your mind is being taken out of the present moment if you're having a lot. Of like what if thoughts like what if this happens? Are you find yourself reflecting on past experiences tearing apart those experiences going over it well, past the point where it's helpful because that's the important piece. There are times when being in your head problem-solving analyzing planning is super helpful and it's a skill that we want to have. But then there's a point where it's no longer helpful and it just. Trying. We're worrying about something for the tenth time when we find ourselves getting really caught up in like should 's like, oh, I should do this or I have to do this or what if and those are kind of little clues to me that I'm getting sucked into my mind and my mind starting to kind of just do work instead of serving me. Okay. So that's how we can start to discern like the should have to what ifs can. Be Closer flags to help us discern. All right. This may have crossed the line from helpful productive, supportive resourceful to Counterproductive. Exactly. Okay. Great Now. Can can you tell us also how did you come to be in this niche of helping people get unstuck from their busy minds? Is there is their personal severe journey that played a part in developing your current here. Of course, there is A. Listen I have the busiest mind immune your world. I'm just in my natural default state I I'm a problem solver I like thinkings odds I like you know think he'd through different scenarios I find it really enjoyable and yet a gone through a couple scenarios in my life where I've struggled with mental health ends the busy mind has just gotten a little bit out of control and I've I've been in this state where I felt like my mind was controlling what's happening in my life instead of me. So back when I was early teens late twenties, I struggled with OCD now, a lot of times when people think of OCD. Hand washing and and concerns around germs. The MY OCD was much more surrounded by safety. So in the evenings I would do things like check the walks ten times you'll make sure there no one was in my room I just a lot of almost kind of paranoia type thoughts around safety and around making sure that I was doing everything I could to make sure that I was safe and unfortunately what ends up happening is your mind starts going. Well, what if this what if someone somehow snuck into your room one if even though you checked. That the stove was off, it really wasn't and those thoughts would then feed all of these behaviors because I'd get so overwhelmed. So anxious in response to that it's like, oh, we'll. We'll. What if I mean if it's it just takes two minutes to go check the stove and make sure that it's turned off. But if I don't check at the House, could burn down and so that was my first experience of seeing how that good analytical part of my mind could be used against me and going to therapy for a couple of sessions I did. A did exposure plus response prevention, which is the most common treatment for OCD, and I'm happy to say it hasn't been an issue in my life for about eight years, which is really great. It's still pops up from time to time but it. I now in control of how I respond to it and I think that's the key it's not necessarily that will ever permanently delete these types of thoughts but as long as we're not feeding them. They're not. We get to decide what happens next

"In addition to the Hor- show of snuff films and child pornography on his laptop right there on his hard drive is a folder labeled the I C S vix which police believe is short for victims and their in. The folder is a sub folder labeled J. L. H. Jessica Haruna J H Right Jessica. Lynn Herring J. L. H. Inside that folder are more child porn and pictures of Jessica herself now. The file name ends with D. Z. One three like clearly code but not like a genius code. It's pretty easy to decipher because basically each letter corresponds with a number and Lynn. More reported for 'em live that you know. They basically matched everything up. They decipher the code again. Not a super hard code to decipher. But when they look at that code deasy one three and they attach numbers to that. Like as one to DC. One three is four twenty six thirteen. That's the day Jessica disappeared now. The folder with Jessica's name isn't the only one there's another folder labeled our sp for Rebecca Sue Vlach with copies of articles about her debt. A wanted poster for her killer and according to Mlive a picture of a woman in a bikini laying on a bed who looks a lot like Rebecca now. This file has got the same type of coat at the end as well in this case it was. F Z PLUS C. One four which using the same formula is six twenty nine fourteen which unsurprisingly is the day that Rebecca was murdered. Now we talked before about how serial killers keep trophies of their victims so with only two victims. Jeffrey doesn't appear to be a serial killer quite yet but clearly. I mean we can see him. Leaning Toward Sadism and documentation on his computer seemed to point to someone well on their way and beyond the van and the photos of just gone. Hard-drive witnesses come forward during the investigation. Who actually plays Jeffrey at the gas station? Where Jessica worked not necessarily at the time that night but like in the past so there was this reporter Heather Walker who talked to some of Jefferies Co workers for W. O. O. D. TV and they recall going with him to that exact Exxon station. Were just a worked. Since it was just about five minutes away from the factory that he worked at and right on the way between where Jaffrey lived and the factory where he worked so it was like a natural spot on his commute. Exactly and we know now that for sure he went there. He would have had some interaction with her now. Another one of Jessica's regulars a woman named Brenda Puts Jeffrey inside the Exxon stored the night before she disappeared. Mrs According to court records this Brenda woman says that she was talking to Jessica and she was actually sharing the same. Fears that Jessica's mom shelley had just about her working at the store so late at night that you know your boyfriend should be looking out for you like aren't you scared. And this point while she's having this conversation. Brenda says that Jeffrey interrupts their conversation and said that just goes customers. Were looking out for her to and she said that when she saw Jessica like here this that she could tell Jessica seemed totally put off by his response like literally started shivering. She was so put off by it. And Brenda said that she got such a bad. Feeling from Jeffrey and Jessica's reaction that she waited in her car the gas station just to make sure that he left that night and the very next day Jessica disappeared in September. Two Thousand Sixteen this three months after he's charged for Rebecca's murder. Jeffrey is officially charged with Jessica. Murder as well okay. I mean that's that's great news but we still don't have Jessica no and that is still the big hurdle to overcome. We all know that. No body cases are so much harder to take to trial and often they don't ever get taken to trial for that reason. I mean just look at the case of a list attorney. Sarah has been fighting until she's blue in the face. She believes it is so clear what happened to her sister. Which just a little aside. I don't know if you all know this but Sarah has started her own. Podcasts called Voices for justice where I mean. She's going into so many details about her sister's case it's insane. You have to listen but in that case there's still no body so police and prosecutors are hesitant to take that to trial and I mean it's got to be a concern in Jessica's case as well for the DA. It's it's you know you're trying to prove motive. You're trying to prove where she is. And I'm sure it's leaves the door open for the defense to be like. We can't prove that she's been murdered. Yeah hockey hugging. Send this guy jail. You can't even prove that that she's for sure that maybe she walked away so while you know it's great that we have this guy. Were pretty sure we know what happened? I think we still need to find Jessica so that it can be a shoo-in to take to trial. But more than anything. Shelly Angel Samantha. They want to know where. Jessica's body is to. They can finally bring her home. Lay Her to rest. But nobody knows where it is. Well maybe I should say it's never been recovered because they're actually might be someone who does know according to court records jeffries first cousin and good friend. A guy named Kevin Blume got a phone call on April twenty seventh telling him to come over because they were gonNA have a party at Jeffrey's plays at this place that he owned and maybe have a foursome. So you know usual partying so Kevin says that he went over there. He goes into the basement where he sees Jeffrey standing next to a naked woman that Jeffrey called quote gas station girl and he said that this woman was lying face down on a sheet with her hands tied and once he got a good look at the woman's face. Kevin says that it was for sure Jessica. She had some kind of liquid coming from a wound on her head. Presumably I mean I I would think blood. And he says that she wasn't and from what he could tell. She was already deceased and Jeffrey admitted to him. At least he says that yes. I sexually assaulted her now. He also saw that. There was a video camera setup as if Jeffrey had been making like some horrific videos of his own. I mean we talked about this stuff on his computer. I mean again. I think he was clearly taking it. From a point of being an observer to now aspen acting this out yeah and making his own stuff that you know who knows where he was planning on distributing this if he didn't already right in the end. Kevin says he actually helped Jeffrey Berry Jessica's body. Okay so he knows so I think he knows but eventually later on Kevin claims that he made all of this up which to me feels Super Shady. Because normally I mean we've talked about this in so many cases like there. There's usually order to how confessions come about and usually it's like. I had nothing to do nothing. I kind of know someone. Okay I kind of did it. And he's almost like in the reverse like he comes out being like. I did everything I helped her. Berry Berry her body and now he's saying Li jk made it all up. So I have a hard time believing that maybe he didn't get cold feet about like his confession or being honest but honest the first time around or not. According to Mlive. There's no body in the burial spot that Kevin takes investigators to so he did lead them somewhere and I don't know the order of how this happened. Maybe he led them there. They didn't find her and then he's like Jay made it up. I mean but they had cadaver dogs which indicated that like a body had never been there at all and in addition to that the location doesn't match like Cell Phone Tower. So obviously they're trying to match up his story with some kind of evidence and none of it is adding up. Plus in another shady move Kevin Wipe all of the data off of his phone and removes the hard drive from his computer before he hands them over to police which just makes me think that he's lying even more like if you're being honest if you had nothing to do with it what are you afraid of them. Finding I mean in my mind. I almost think he was involved in the same kind of stuff that Geoffrey was. Yeah and plus like cousins are not knowing just calls up a friend to come over after they've committed a ton of sex crimes and murder in their basement unless they know for a fact. That person is going to participate or help them in some way. I'm with you. I think he had possibly something more to do. Just because murder than he's letting on and police agreed so eventually Kevin is charged with lying to police and being an accessory after the fact now he just spends a little over a year in prison and gets five years probation ends in electric. Gps monitoring to track whereabouts at all times now even though this. Gps tracker doesn't lead police. To the truth I mean. I'm sure there was part of the hope like he would go back to the scene of the crime and Kevin has never admitted the real location. Where Jessica is buried? It doesn't matter in the end. Because Geoffrey Willis is found guilty of murdering both Rebecca. Blatch and Jessica herring and he is sentenced to life without parole in both charges. Despite a new tip that came in just in October. Two Thousand Eighteen Jessica's body still hasn't been found although Jessica's murderer is in prison for his crime. I don't feel like her family is fully at rest because this past December another Christmas passed without bringing their daughter home and I think every day. They're going to continue looking for her. Until they can find. Jessica.

In highschool you waitressed at a Greek diner called the Blue Comet also known as the blue vomit Do you have any memorable stories from this day. Man Only kind of sad or dangerous stories like one of the things that I came to my mind which is awful and thankfully the restaurant is closed and probably shall remain closed forever but I remember customers would come in and ask if there were any sugar free desserts and we we offered like sugar free Jello as thing and one time I was back in the kitchen and actually saw the packets of Jello that they were calling the sugar. Free Jell O.. And it was definitely not sugar. So you're free and I was like Oh my God we're GonNa kill someone and I tried to raise zinc the management and they were just like this isn't your place you know they were like you're seventeen go. I and you did for good I did and I did. It was also like Mike Montero things everybody should work in service industries before they are horrible. Well as a person and I totally agree with that too I think if you waitress or ever work in any sort of capacity like that if I worked at the gap also for a summer when I was in high school will and I just have so much appreciation for people that work in any sort of industry like that. When I worked at the Blue Comet we would work? I would work there like Sunday after church shift and I would turn over. No lie eighty to ninety tables and I would make eighty five dollars tips like so I just have. I'm such Gotcha. Krazy tip her like and I definitely am always like twenty to twenty five percent and if not throw a few extra dollars on absolutely absolutely. I worked through College College at a joint called. Kosher pizza and falafel my clothes. That I worked. It didn't always smelled so bad. I left them out in the dorms. Man The smell and Greece on like generic glac aprons is still a smelly can never never let leave my brain just last appeared. Undesired matters in twenty eleven and so much has has happened since then for you both personally and professionally. I also found in my research this time around quite a lot more about you that I didn't know from from our previous interview so I get to ask some of those questions too so I wanNA start back at the beginning for a bit for those. That might have listened to our previous episodes. These will be different historical questions. So you grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Hazelton And Your Dad was a dentist. Your mom studied chemistry. And I read that you were raised by parents who fit your artistic curiosity with ample crayons scissors and construction Russian paper. And you'd work for hours and hours on end. So what was the young Jessica his making back then. Oh Young Jessica. Hedge was obsessed with anything thing art related and I think my parents so much because they just gave me endless art supplies. Like I had like really professional pastel sets when I was like ten years old which is awesome? Because it's not something that I feel like all parents don't have an art background would do but I think part of it was just because I was just like so well behaved when I was in my art world like they just sit me at a table with art supplies and I would be good to go for six hours the things that I was into. I don't know I got really into replicating advocating farsighted comex when I was in like maybe fourth and fifth grade I tried to make a bunch of lake. Pretend comics that. Were based on similar. Gary Larson Humor that for our terrible if I go back and read them because I still have them I have some of them because my mom was okay. It's saving them but it's really funny to read comics by people that clearly. Don't get the joke in in the first place So it was just replicating the style more so than the writing and then I also got really into drawing maps of my house and plotting. The dogs like life cycle throughout the house today so it was like drawing battle maps. I got really into kind of drawing like battle maps of our house for my brother and I to play with I was also just very rule following kid. I describe myself as being a hall monitor forever. I was definitely like color within the lines. Kind of kit and didn't do a lot a lot of really experimental drawings. I was really obsessed with trying to draw things realistically and was really proud of myself when I could draw something realistically and felt like I was rewarded for that. As a little doc id now I understand that you would also abandon dozens of sketchbooks because of one bad drying. You've given up bon courses in school because you've got one bad grade and your ability to have straight A.'s. was ruined so not only. Will you a hall monitor. But I think you were a little good of a perfectionist. Definitely I think the so the abandoning sketchbooks and courses then came a little bit later because I feel like when I was in junior high and high school. I couldn't really actually be perfect. I remember there was this geometry class that I took in the eighth grade or something like that and the final was to label every country on a blank world map and every capital on that blink. World Map wow it was aggressive and I just crumbled under the pressure. Sure I think I got like a fifty eight or something. It's like the lowest grade of ever gotten on anything and you still remember it. I remember devastated. I was after because I was just like. I'm not smart. I'm so dumb. Lola you know and I definitely had that moment and then when I was in high school I felt like I knew that I wanted to pursue art but I didn't really get a ton of opportunities until the end and by then I felt really behind on a lot of things and when I transferred to Public School in Eleventh Grade you know public schools have their own system for grades grades. They had like a all those things where you can get more than a four point. Oh so the top twenty percent of my class had like four point four's when they graduated and when I came over from Catholic school we didn't have that system we didn't have gifted we didn't have. AP classes and so my GPA. which was totally fine in the Catholic school was like three point eight or or some random number? I was like not even in the top forty percent of my class because I didn't have all these extra bonus points. Wow now was it treated transferred from from Catholic school to Public School because they weren't enough art classes Catholic school. That's True Lena. The Art classes in my Catholic school were sort of blow off classes. They were fun in their own way. Because is it was a bunch of like senior high school football players than me in this one other eighth grade girl named Carolina who I'm still friends with and we would take it so seriously and they would just be trying to prank are poor art our teacher the whole time and then when I was ascending into eleventh grade I was like okay. Great now I can really take start taking all these other classes and they were like. Oh but you still are behind on your math. Ask so no not this semester maybe next semester and I was listening pucks place I hear in high school. Your parents got a divorce he did. You've stated that this started a fire in you and you needed to become independent as soon as possible to find yourself in your voice. What was it about their divorce? That served as catalyst part of it. Was I think any kid that goes through their parents divorce at any age source of like they see their parents humanity a lot earlier. You you know your parents are these sort of like omniscient beings. When you're a kid that can do no wrong? That are not people their parents and when you see them go through like a very a harrowing thing personally you get to see like a lot of them as a human versus them as just your parent and it made me sort of like like that was really jarring and made me feel like I had to grow up really fast for one thing and then also just sort of seeing my mom who had put all of her eggs in this basket of just. It's like this marriage and raising kids. And she had really given up her career in order to be a parent and you now as a parent myself. I see just how much work goes into parenting. It's hard because I think a lot of women don't get a lot of the credit that they look for the work that they do at home and I'm not saying that my dad liked didn't give her credit for that but it's more just like I didn't want to be put in a position ever where I was like had all of my eggs in one basket and had to rely on another person's livelihood in order to exist. You know so. I really wanted to make sure that I could make my own way. That I wasn't relying on Henry downs from anybody or even now as an adult like like my husband and I have an amazing relationship and we're very much like our money is all our money. It's not yours and it's not mine but I do feel very protective of my career and and contributing contributing to our relationship and feeling like I never want to be a person that doesn't fully contribute in this financially in the same way. Is that even remotely possible given your success success that I wouldn't be able to get. Yeah of course you know like there's highs and lows in every career. I've been really lucky in that. I've been really on top of it so I say lucky but it's really I've just been like obsessively on top of really the hardest working people in the design business. Well I mean the biggest thing is one of the things that I realized really early on was that you can't put all of your eggs in any one basket even professionally early. So I and I found that out just because I was freelancing from when I was you know twenty three or twenty four of just like there's parts of the industry that dry up seasonally so I would have to make sure that like I had other things going on and so I always like would make sure that whenever I was working as a freelancer i. I didn't just have one kind of work or I didn't just have one kind of client and I feel you like coming in as an illustrator versus designer. It's a little more normal to do that. Because I do feel like freelance designers have clients that come back to them over and over for an over again and they form these very long term relationships but then you also hear about designers that like one client goes out of business and then fifty percent of their business and they have to figure out how to rebuild it as a freelance illustrator. Peter I never have that I feel like I. Just go on a bunch of epic for states ten like it's just like endless first dates. I'm a very like non monogamous designer so he promiscuous various. It has a straighter. I've had of course some repeaters which have been wonderful and lovely but a Lotta Times by the time they come back to me. It's like an entirely different creative team and so that was one way of being diverse. But another thing was just making sure that like I had stuff. That was making money for me when I wasn't able to make the money myself a passive passive income. Yeah and so..

"Jessica remember, Jessica, I know some people have tweeted me saying, they don't, but that's the other. Jessica, obviously, the the main motivation to vote her out was to remove the tribes power structure because the others all of them were acting like they were the powers that be telling him how to vote and he wasn't being included in decision making it felt the he could be trapped in a corner if they kept losing. So he was thinking ahead about what kind of position he wanted to be in. And he was taking the appropriate. Actions by getting himself into a good position from that point on. He voted the right way every time until the Gabby vote being the last contestant to vote correctly at each vote. And even when he voted for Allison instead of Gabby last week. He knew that he was voting wrong and was doing it on purpose. So even if he wasn't driving the action he was in the know, and he was thinking ahead and that sort of forward thinking was present throughout the game. Although it certainly became more difficult at the merge. I think what's interesting too about his the way that he was voting. He said in one of his exit interviews that he knew where every vote was going. So he was clearly in the know of what everyone else was doing which is a phenomenal position to be in. Because then you actually do know how vote was going to unfold, and you don't you're not surprised. And so I think that that speaks volumes of how strategic he was. Actually playing the game because he was so aware of what everyone else was doing..

"That's a great question um i think it's really progressive to talk about race in relationships i think there is a so much room for that and there needs to be more of it and i also think it's progressive to not make a mention of race in certain stories so i was really drawn to this movie in this project because i'm this character jessica just sort of was allowed to exist fully in unapologetically ends i really think that there is a time were projects or things are to colorblind like there are certain things that don't necessarily make sense um like for example i watched the game of thrones episode a while ago and i saw there was a fully black female character in there is at the first one the night scene and she'd totally had like a we've inner here and i could tell and so that was really colorblind casting but also for me i was like how did this chick get a fully laid out we in west arose so that that zemy those completely colorblind but also i think that there is something to having a minority or a person of colour or somebody who is queer or whatever just exist in a story and have it not be about that so your character is a playwright and is constantly getting rejection letters which he has displayed on her wallet at home it's kind of like rejection letter wallpaper his gotten many of them that's a phase you never had to go through a new starting your career because you've got on the daily show and you were 22 you got the job when you still taking your finals in the final semester at cal state so um.
