Another selling point, he says no facility transfers as patients heal. We stay with the patient until they're fully recovered. And an average is anywhere from 20 to 30 days, sometimes longer, so we substitute not just for the hospital. But for all the care that follows. Still, not every patient is a fit. They have to live within 30 minutes of emergency care. They also need to high speed Internet. And says Patel. They can't be too sick.

That has been set up in the area After kind of civil war. A lot of lebanese a lot of immigrants also moved to that area and then you have in recent years. The kind of middle-class affluent young lawyers cray tubes and but also people who have a steady jobs and families now in that. And we'd that has caused displacement of the indigenous communities as well as people who rely on social housing in that area. So i kind of wanted to choose that area for variety of reasons but that kinda complex background to it already was fading into so much of what i wanted to talk about. And you've also made this fool people within the house all of different ethnic grounds through. Yeah and you know. I think that was something. That was very Will be very conscious. But i think that there were a lot of aspects to that decision. One was wanting to talk about sort of second generation migrant because there is very different social reality occurring as well then the keys that a looking today. mother country own had some Necessarily in other countries people who contributing to a lot of these forms of gentrification and foams all sort of social class mobility but at the same time a lot of these people who have families that know what it feels like to be displaced. Look they all want to make something of their lives. And i'm quoting here from Kavita friends shapes they want more than renting and casual work contracts and the tinder. One night stands my housemates now. I want to get on with our lives and build something more lasting. We are all turning thirty and seen start. Look like we imagined they would. So what are these doing will let them working kind of casual jobs or they're working in areas that they aren't necessarily have a connection with sore macho of what they spoke is trying to explore as well as the idea of what he's home so in many ways they're trying to create a kind of home. Ach with initia- house. But i wanted that to also sit alongside so many of the inhabitants of the city as you know the city makes up such a huge part of the character in the book meant a lot of it's about strangers and connections with uber drivers and cafe workers and baristas and all these people that make up the social fabric of our day to day life. And i wanted these full. Who in a share house to be some questioning their ideas of home in what makes a harm alongside so many of these strangers inhabitants..

Was it a share house with cleaning rosters on the fridge and impromptu parties friends and doc shapes is the debut novel by kavita bid. Welcome kavita hijab. Thanks so much for having me will your noble starts with three looking for a housemate. Who are these three. So there's the protagonist who is looking one year after her father has passed away and she is. We'd two other friends from one is from her. Use and one is someone that she knows who is a friend of a friend. And eventually they go through various interviews to find housemates which is something that i think. Many people who are in their twenties and thirties have experienced and eventually settle on someone as they say another friend of a friend. Because that's how you get anything in this issue. What are some of the things that they do in the sheer house together. So i was really interested in. Will i guess the fact that. I've lived in their houses for way longer than i want to. But you know a lot of things ought to do that. Day to day fabric of life that i also found quite poetic in a lot of ways. That things like. How do you find shelf in the fridge to call you on. Had you buy toilet paper in a way that everyone is chipping in and had you come up with these kinds of rules for a simulation of family really but something that this new house shares a doing is employing cleanup now. That mitt led to a lot of discussion about the ethics. Yeah i guess a lot of the aspects. I wanted to talk about in way. That was sort of less obvious. Were to request dimensions as well as you know. Much spoke actually goes into the themes of gentrification and i think this is huge disparity at the moment between on the one hand generation that of ford to buy a home or leaving a city like sydney and scrimping and saving and doing a set of casual jobs and then on the other hand having conversations where they can employ at cleanup new tasks. And i sort of didn't want to be judgmental about anyone in the book. Because i think this is an issue that is affecting all of us in different ways. Many of us are implicit in the ways that we are two contributing to these distinctions with class. But i thought that using something like a vehicle to discuss some of these sort of susheela Inferences of how classic fits into sort of day to day decision making the head the shit house in red fund.

The Boy Who Inspired Baltimore
"With twenty twenty now officially in the books we're taking one last look back at the year in sports and replaying our very favorite episode of twenty twenty. It's about baltimore's most unforgettable young sports fan mugabe who passed away from cancer. The athletics brit girly spoke with us about mos- brief incredible life and a moment after his death that she'll never forget from wondering on the athletic. I'm kavita davidson. And i'm under scotto. This is the lead so britt tell us about the earliest days of mugabe's life mokaba first few months of his life which state regular newborn infant and around about nine months. His mother sasi saw photo of him. In which is is just white she went and got him checked out and it turned out that he had cancer anywhere so he had it in the back he was a kid who spent seventy five percent of his young life in the hospital constantly getting aggressive chemotherapy or a life of sickness and never got better. How did mow become such a big sports fan. It came from his mother sans e who made no bones about it. I'll be back forth lethem level. When did move. I come onto the radar of baltimore. Sports fans around the age of nine mo- decided that he was going to call in to this afternoon. Show five seven. Jeremy khan and scott carr so or the two anchors and they get a call from a nine year old kid and jeremy's berry aware that sometimes kids are shy or they don't know what to say i mean he had his confidence his swagger about that i thought was so cool when he would call in and then it just months and loved the ravens at orioles so much it just really really shown through. Thank you walk. Can we get picking booking shot. Pick right there. What's funny is santi was working during the day. She had no idea for months.

Cool man and it was all of the jones different things you started getting his own theme music. really funny and engaging kid once you get a chance even the most hardin cremona callers were like. Yeah i love bow and no one knew. He was sick for a very long time and it wasn't until the promotions director was like mugabe. I've seen that kid a cancer events for their sister station. Jeremy wasn't even sure they were talking about the same kid. He saw video of mo and he realized that voice. That voice was coming out of this little boy in a wheelchair who conveyed nothing of the pain and thorough medical procedures that he had already been through never had anything negative to say about anyone. He never talked about any issue with body nation. Change us old. You're already in trouble. Nationwide think so. I'm not the. I'm not kidding. And his legend grew within the community. The ravens heard about him only say mo on free. What do i pitch for the orioles in two thousand seventeen. We have very special kid with us. Mo- gabby he is a baltimore.

No nine was asked than boys all speech recognition of that and went to him at a time when the whole of this neural networks etc hadn't really taken off and so you know we really went through. Some brady is being taken the reasoning long journey. But i think it just. It's seven different aspects of it pretty exciting perspective but also in terms of just the impact it can have them people whether that's india or the uk. And i think that's still keeps going. You have to remember that when we started it. I was looking at this very much as a communication. Not as a technology problem and you know cinema was big. Television was baked. But you still had bosc suedes of india where either there was no electricity a lot of the time. All people just didn't have access to a tv all going to a cinema. It was still a luxury so but had right the head mobile phone to find a job or mobile phone to ask somebody. They should travel to from village to the nearest town so it was almost two billion and onion it. Was you know having been in communication all my life. Well how do communicate with boss numbers of people if you don't have what we have taken for granted. Tv and online etc and serious coming to very much from a technology point of view so it really was a marriage of necessity meets a potential and one tell us a bit about what did does then. So how would you describe vokes to its platform. Like how would. How would you describe what books to us. Very much a platform and i think it's a bad healthy allied making it easier to set up a new service and then to refine it very quickly with live uses and from the very beginning. We've taken that approach because you can see immediately from the very beginning that actually bit. One of the biggest constraints about launching boy says says was that you need to have speech experts on one side. You need have national language guys on the other side conversational y- flare design and all of this you. We still need to do. It's become of course significantly easier because some of those jobs have been addressed quite significantly. But i think a rule. We just wanna make it easier to launch voice spots in one of the full whether it's on Telefoni or on mobile apps and to that extent. It was obvious that we had to do we really. We had two full rather than be a developing company about pacing about offering clients brands. Sme's an alternative to the big boys. If you wanted a website you wouldn't go to google or amazon to develop your website for you. That's kind of the position that everybody is a with voice. The has be somewhere where you could go to.

C.D.C. Pleads With Americans to Stay Home on Thanksgiving
"Right now. Laboratories are warning shortages of supplies likely will create more delays in getting test results. Out especially as case numbers surged joining us. Now physician and fellow at the brookings institution dr patel. She's a former obama white house. Health policy director in an msnbc medical contributor dr patel. It's good to see this morning. We also heard yesterday from the cdc that said please avoid travel now for thanksgiving a week out and we got our first news briefing in four months from the task force. The white house task force. Dr burks and dr fauci. What did you take away from what they said yesterday. And what's your view of these incredibly stark numbers. We just saw good morning to everyone. I think that take away from yesterday was actually both an incredible dire warning about thanksgiving about the numbers that we can expect and then also a ray of sunshine. If we can actually do what we need to do. Dr fauci spoke about the extraordinary. And casey mentioned it. The extraordinary progress we've made with vaccines from operation warp speed as well as global cooperation. But a vaccine does not mean that you can actually just kind of read the sigh of relief and go about your merry ways. It really does mean is. Dr burke said yesterday that we have to do things today and change behaviors today in order to be able to have a light at the end of the tunnel and benefit from the vaccines and willie looking at those pictures. I can't help but shudder and fear that some of those people in line are actually doing testing so that they can go and celebrate thanksgiving. I i know that a lot of what my patients are saying. And and that is frankly a big concern your task force and the cdc again was clear yesterday. Small groups within your own household and do not even travel at this point for thanksgiving. That's about as serious as that warning could be so dr patel as you rightly. Say great news on the vaccine front but for most people in this country. That's at least what six months away to get that so we have six months. Let's say from here to there where anything can happen. If we don't have further mitigation efforts from your point of view based on these numbers that we're seeing the trajectory you say were on and that we are on should we go further nationally or at least state by state in terms of stay at home. Orders for example mask mandates. What would you like to see. Yes this is absolutely the conversation that i hope every governor again because we have no national strategy what we did not hear yesterday was kind of an announcement or a bold proclamation about what we can count on at the national level. So you're right willie. We do need to have mask. Mandate that the state levels nationally. We just need all except that wearing a mask and make a difference. Especially if you're going to go and celebrate thanksgiving with people who are not normally in your household. Here's something that i think is incredibly controversial. That happening were closing schools. Before we're making mold steps close or reduce indoor capacity of a restaurant than places where we know people are getting together. I would do the reverse. I would not penalize younger children where we have seen that. We have not been having as much of an outbreak as we have in other settings that people are moving towards indoors shops and restaurants and then i really hope that on a policy level that we can resurrect some stimulus funding because these businesses especially during a holiday season are dying on the vine and again. It's all unnecessary. We've had zero ability to offer small business owners an away to have reliable testing to even keep their employees safe. And that's what we've decided to do in this country. So that's what i want to ask you about in terms of testing dr patel's a former white house health and policy director. I know the biden team says on day one. The president plans to invoke the defense production act on things like testing these lines. That we're seeing Football fields of cars people waiting for hours and hours sometimes days to get a false result on testing is a massive almost the number one impediment to mitigation because as they're waiting in line. They're missing work if they have work. They're exposing themselves to people as they're waiting for these tests and these test results that sometimes take days to come and for those who are lucky enough. Maybe they can buy a test. But it's not like that for the rest of america. Who is in this situation right here. Which is so unacceptable. Had president trump invoked the deep on testing. Would we be in this situation right now. No your outrage. I can't tell you how much that outrageous felt by so many healthcare workers around the country. Here here's something to wrap our brains around. We were able to develop to at least two highly efficacious vaccines and cheaper than it is to get a pcr nasal swab which your head around that that is unacceptable that somehow we have decided that the ability to actually offer employers to open safely away to actually keep schools open in a way for americans to feel. Testing does not replace masks and prevention whatsoever but it certainly could be a critical piece in finding those asymptomatic carriers the majority of people we know who are either infected or are able to transmit the coronavirus right now if we had reliable cheap and easy testing. It doesn't even have to be perfect makeup. We could do something every three days. We know that that's probably the time period where we could catch the majority of cases and this is just a system failure on all levels that the fda is cdc initially relying on flawed testing in the beginning and then again no national vocation of the defense production. Act at no pressure to try to identify how we can get testing especially to the hardest hit communities black and brown communities where we still have really pathetic testing eighth and turnaround times stability and the and the needless loss of life here is mind. Boggling dr kavita patel. Thank you very much for being on the show this
How Doris Burke Became An Accidental Pioneer
"We'll. So Dana I can you tell us a little bit about your own relationship with Doris Burke Yeah? I'm Lucky Kavita I. Mean I worked at ESPN for eight years. So Doris was one of the people that I interacted with frequently. I mean we had so much in common with our love for college basketball and we would just chat at games or she shoot me a text. Love that story that you did today you are. You're just you know you did a great job you knocked it out of the park or I would text her. So we've gone back for years and She's just always been the same. That's the coolest thing I can say about Dr is I don't care if she's super popular people are making t-shirts. Drake and all this, and she's still the same that she was when I first met her how would you describe her on air personality and her style in the booth I think what people like about Dr She's She's she's very intelligent and on point about all of her observations, he's got US billy. Donovan says excellent lower body strength and he doesn't reach over. Don't give the official even a window cut the angle. She is not loud. She's not there's no stick to her tough shot contest. Yes. Yes she says something and she really hones in her. She really calls somebody out everyone's Kinda like both. To Me is where Andrew Wiggins has stood in the corners on several possessions. Like steals reporter to. And if you talk to people in the game, they actually say that they they are very respectful of her opinion and they know if she has a problem with something, then there's a problem. We'll Dana you recently wrote a profile on doors for the athletic I. can you tell us a little bit about her background and her early days? She's like a lot of us or at least like me you know kids that grew up just interested in sports. Super. Star Sable. Start Tonight number eleven she moved from Long Island to the Jersey shore to a small town happened to be a park across the street and a basketball hoop and it was like divine intervention right? She hadn't really played a lot of basketball growing up in Long Island. But when she moved, she was young enough that she just that's where she went and there was never a sense of Oh Doris girls don't play sports. It was just whatever you're busy go outside and play sable from outside. and. So she just became a really good ballplayer where really good basketball players are often developed, which is on the playgrounds took all comers boys girls didn't care. The BUZZER GUARD SABLE Head. And grew into a good enough. Basketball players to get a scholarship to providence. We forget that that was a really big deal for young women. Athletes are just weren't a lot of them. That wasn't normal and she recognize it immediately as what it was. It was a ticket for her to get to college and pay for college and established herself in a career. She wasn't there was no WNBA obviously, she knew that this was the path for her future in her life and she just kinda followed it along. Well, she definitely likes to make fun of herself when talking about in her plane, I had it all going on bad hair bad teeth bad clothes, and the only thing I care about whether my jump shot would ever Mack my triple driveability. She does she downplays herself. She doesn't think she wasn't. You know whatever she wasn't the greatest player. You know she was more of a thoughtful player than a an athletic player that sort of thing. Yeah. I mean she's very self deprecating even about her broadcasting career, which is just hilarious. But again, that's what makes Dr. Stars is that she doesn't take herself too seriously. How did she get her start in broadcasting accidentally which I think I can relate that myself but in her circumstance she was coach she went back to providence to be a coach but then she got married and she got to look around. You know this was back when there weren't a lot of. MOMS that were coaches, you know a lot of coaches, maybe one or the other they couldn't do both and she really thought I want to start a family. So she stepped away from coaching and by Dumb luck at the same time Providence decided you know what? We could put a couple of women's basketball games on the radio and we need somebody to do the radio for us and Ella Dar's. You're sitting there. Why don't you do this and she did and she jokes pie five people are listening you probably honestly not wrong. Let's be honest providence women's basketball and some regional network probably not like drawing huge numbers but she loved it and it was easy and it was comfortable and that just sort of Begat one opportunity after another and an big break came because one of the men's basketball. Analyst for the Big East Games couldn't make it into a providence men's game and they were desperate and that she tells us hilarious story was at the emergency room with her son. He had fallen off the weight bunch cut his head open blood everywhere. She's GONNA to bloody shirt and they told her to come down and do play by play and she said, well, I can't play by play but I'll do the color and boom she's on TV and there she. Is I mean no intent to climb some corporate ladder it just sort of opportunity presented itself and she took it.
With a New Sleep-Aid Drink, Pepsi Tackles Coronasomnia
"Americans are getting far less sleep than we ever have. We were already a nation of insomniacs before covid nineteen created so much chaos. Now, apparently, even fewer of us are getting enough shut eye. So help is coming from a highly unusual source pepsico. That's right. One of the nation's biggest caffeine purveyors now wants to help us get to sleep last week. Pepsi introduced a new bedtime drink intended to provide some. Relief called drift. Well, it's a blackberry lavender drank contains two chemicals said to be relaxing magnesium and an amino acid called L. CNN. Pepsi will begin selling drift well online at the end of the year and in stores and twenty, twenty one but you better start saving your pennies now. So called functional drinks, those containing vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other supplements cost a lot more than your average soda when drift well hits the market, a ten pack of the seven and a half ounce cans will set you back eighteen bucks. Pepsi says it began developing drift well, last year after an employee up the idea during an internal pitch competition no reports on whether that employees can't sleep. So drift well predates the corona virus, but it's release is well-timed with what sleep specialists now say is an epidemic of insomnia. The draft accompanying the pandemic is so widespread that some specialists are calling pandemic do sleeplessness Coronas Omnia the Washington. Post reports insomnia has long been a plague on our lives prior to the pandemic ten to fifteen percent of Americans suffered from chronic insomnia according to the. Post that's the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at least three nights a week for three months or more well now, those numbers are even higher although studies aren't yet conclusive on just how much higher they are but consider this prescriptions for sleep AIDS jumped fifteen percent from mid February to mid March according to data from express scripts reported by the Post and of course, his problem surge. So to do the markets for solutions, the market for sleep AIDS, is currently worth a billion dollars in growing quickly according to data provided by Pepsi. And why shouldn't the soda giant get a piece of that? Indeed as we've reported here before Pepsi has been diversifying for many years forging a healthier and more profitable path forward soda consumption declines as CNN noted in twenty-six. Pepsi Acquired Kabukicho Maker Kavita two years. Later it bought Health Warrior, a maker of plant based energy bars, and it has added protein powders to some of its line of gatorade energy drinks. Not, to be outdone, rival coke is also bought a combined shoemaker. It's lines of bottled water and sparkling waters are doing well to cocoa also has acquired honest tea and it has long been the owner of Zico, a brand of coconut water but so far coke products can only keep you awake not help you slumber depending on how well drift well does though a sleep inducing beverage from coke probably won't be far behind in back the need for a sleep aid soda. Might just be keeping. The are indeed people coke. Up at, night.
Speech Processing for Disease - Dr Ami Moyal, President, Afeka Tel Aviv College of Engineering
"Center for Language Processing Quick Example was founded by eleven years ago after I spent fifteen years in the high tech industry as a research engineer vice-president technology, and CEO. Since then the centre has grown to be the largest research. Sentiment is bound helpless on Applied Research Field With project completed for the defense industry high companies, the medical field and more. Most recently, the language processing has been researching the use of speech processing, not sufficient diligence algorithms for providing a quicken, readily available three diagnostic assessment of Covid, nineteen infection we belden need for human intervention. When it comes to a rapidly spreading virus such as covid nineteen with millions of potential carriers Goud the global population. It is essential die identified like carry-ons virus at the early stages confection in order to private as testing efforts and break the chain of mission while it's great to hear there's just so much going on in Israel in the in the research failed, and specifically around language processing, you guys are really applying it to one of the most worthy and needed causes at the moment, the pre diagnosis of covid nineteen. Completely, understand the need to prioritize testing efforts. Tests are in short supply so you really do have to get to the right people i. I'm rendered. There was some talk around whether it was possible to use voice for the diagnosis of Kavita. This is a couple of months ago. Remember I'm on the on the what's that groups and things? I'm part of people were skeptical that it was actually possible. So tell us. Is it actually possible to use voice files, voice recording speech even coughs and non? Verbal. nonverbal recordings of of a human voice to be able to diagnose covid nineteen. That is precisely what our current research is into. After consulting with physicians specializing oratory disease and ear nose and throat, as well as with doctors conflict within coronavirus patients, we learned that among the earliest symptoms. So covid nineteen. Vocal the. And throat infection. These affect human localization patterns. We are modeling samples of speech coughing and breathing from both symptomatic and Azima the night to carry us to compare with models taken from healthy subjects. AUTOMO-. We are also modeling vocalisations subject the tested negative for covid nineteen yet are exhibiting similar symptoms shot such as those infected by the common flu. DC will a loaded the commodity who differentiate between someone who is likely a carrier and someone? Well. That makes perfect sense I mean obviously someone who is infected and is showing symptoms is going to sound different to someone who is isn't so I completely understand how you can train these machine learning models to recognize the difference I'm fascinated by the ability to be able to distinguish between different diseases though because I would imagine the you know if you have one type of disease or another, the reaction of your body would largely be the same the produce flam in the lungs which would come up in a fatal throw in different ways I'll be really really interested to know what the difference is. In how that sounds depending on the on which disease that you have

"So because acrylics water base, you can send them down and you can again add more media whatever doesn't spend them down but they're also things which I use a fairmount called acrylic fluid. So fluids tiny little containers usually because they're incredibly expensive but basically, what they are is very liquid form of acrylic paint. So it gives you a lot of pigments, a lot of punch of color, but it's very liquid whereas if I took paint out of a tube and I spend the down to get it liquidity, I'd be weakening the pigment. Not as not as potent so I use a combination of regular paint and also fluids. Yeah. So why by all those? Being, put together I can create. Watercolor effects and also marine richness is that are associated oils. But the reason we prefer acrylics to, let's say oil. Is because oil's take a long time to dry I know that they're Brian oils that exist today but also wears a very toxic fumes from the. Is. And the lipids in your skin and they go into bloodstream very easily and whatnot and they can. It can affect your respiratory track. So not a fan of oil from a healthy point, and that's why I also stay away from oil. You know besides painting. Mister. SPOCK's she's also done work she's painted. The other characters?

"The thing about Mr Spock and anybody connected with the Star Trek in is, is that somebody owns does and so how did you approach paramount or I guess CBS paramount and and say, Hey, this is what I can do. What do you guys think decide how you approach him pretty. Well effectively so I'll I'll say is that I when I decided to do this painting series for civil I decided to do a painting but then I start to do painting series it was always for me And You know it was a personal project. I wanted to do this painting from, and in fact, when it was supposed to be one painting, it was going to go in the thick spot in my house like I was doing this the thing about Mr Spock and anybody connected with the Star Trek images is that somebody owns does and so how did you approach paramount or against CBS paramount and? And say, Hey, this is what I can do. What do you guys think does that how you approach him pretty much well, well effectively so I'll say to you that need to get more and more connected to star Trek where I I. Love For Star Trek kept growing basically Um, and so I got to the point where you know I've been sharing these paintings on my facebook page with people who may or may not be trekkies. And so then I thought I'd like to share this these paintings with trekkies. and. But at the same time, I should mention I'm a yoga teacher. So I actually run a yoga studio. So. Yeah. So I've got a lot of students and I didn't want to go onto instagram and create an account where my students would be able to identify. It was me and the only reason I didn't WanNa do that was I felt that my students would follow that instagram seemed because it was me and I didn't want that. I wanted whoever followed that feed it was because they loved Star Trek and that will spoke to them that was it. So what I did was I created an anonymous instagram account. I didn't put my face on the account, put my name on the account and then I, started posting pictures of my endings. And the count started to grow relatively quickly and Oh and I try to stay anonymous for as long as I could. Then, what happened was I started having people contacting the off into the painting. And Very I would say you know I'm sorry I, said thank you. But you know I'm sorry these did these are labors of love and so you know there for me. So I'm not selling the paintings and then eventually got so many requests and at the same time it was getting so many requests I got a particular request. An old friend of Leonard. Nimoy A wow. And he and he wanted to buy the paintings as well and I told him exactly what I told everybody else. I'm sorry. This is a labor of love and. but at that point in time I thought okay.

Coronavirus And Parenting: What You Need To Know Now
"We're going to talk with you about really the only thing that Anya and I have been talking about for the last two weeks Colona virus. Obviously that's what everyone has been talking about so this is going to be a special life kit parenting episode about how to talk with young kids about corona virus. How to deal with school closures may be. Your school is closed. Or maybe it isn't and you're worried about why it isn't We're also GONNA talk about some screen time strategies if your kids are home and most importantly how to keep our kids healthy and because we're education reporters. We are in the privileged position of talking to experts about this. And so we thought that we would come to you our life kit listeners and pulled together everything that is a potentially useful so here we go take away number one. We'RE GONNA start super basic here is. We've said this two weeks ago we're GONNA say it again. Your kids need to understand. Not only that. It is important to wash their hands but really show them how to wash their hands. Well make sure they take twenty seconds. Make sure they use soap and you know have him sing a song in their heads. Whatever it is whatever it takes. This is seriously one of the most powerful things that you end. They can do to protect not only themselves but all of us right so when they wash their hair. They've washed their hands when they come in from outside before eating and then coming along with that so I spoke to a friend of Mine Kavita. And she is the MOM. Actually of immuno-compromised kid. He's three years old and he's doing pretty well but he had it. He's had a stem cell transplant in the past so they are really really re used to all this stuff as a family. And here's some of this. She told me as soon as we walk inside. We just wash our hands for a good thirty seconds to a minute. Do you listen. We use lotion. Because the handwashing can really cause your skin to crack we aquaphor and things that we might not think of Don't forget to clip your fingernails. Every other day keep them short because the virus hides under there and we've heard this thing to stop touching your face rate. It's very hard for me. I will fully admit I caught myself on the metro this morning. Touch and Manos right so I do it. I know it was really alarming. Sorry so so. A couple of tips one is. I painted my toddler's face yesterday. And she had touched it so many times within like five minutes. I think it was actually a pretty good reminder for US still spitballing on that all right moving on to take away number two. When we're talking about corona virus it is really important to give them facts and be reassuring. Yup Don't make promises though that you cannot keep right so the big thing that comes to mind for me is any parents first reaction when a child has am I gonNA get Corona virus is GonNa be no of course not no. Don't be silly. Don't say that because you don't know that that is not a promise that you can keep and so instead these recommendations come directly from the CDC talk about what Cove Nineteen looks and feels like say you know. It can feel kind of like a flu. People can get a fever or cough. The might have a hard time breathing. You can be reassuring that only a small group of people really who get it actually have more serious problems and we also know from what doctors have seen so far. That kids don't seem to be getting very sick. Yeah that's a huge. I think for kids to to listen to you into here. Is that very very few? Kids have gotten sick. Yeah absolutely and on your one. More thing Just because I don't think we can say this enough in every episode that we do for parents and kids is always double down on the fact that there are helpers out there there are always home whether you get sick with Cova nineteen or flu or you fall off your bicycle and break your arm. They're going to be folks out. There will help you get through this yup totally you know. We have a whole life episode on talking to kids about scary stuff in the news. But just in a thirty second recap Ask what they have heard what what rumors they may have. Come across. Ask other feeling. Make sure that you check in and limit the flow of information in your house and honestly this really goes for parents to you know no screens in the bedroom at night Don't play the news all day. We all need to take a lot of breaks from what's coming in at US absolutely so. Arteta number three is that we should all try to reduce any stigma or misinformation phobia around this virus. You may have heard politicians talking about the Chinese corona virus. You know it's been kicking around. It's very important especially when you talk to school leaders. Educators social workers. It's very important when talking with kids especially about this outbreak that we don't try to assign blame Because this disease affects all of us and we all need to help protect each other our takeaway number four is about closing schools. And Cory's been reporting on this. It's really complicated decision. Yeah I think we're really just at the beginning of a wave of closures and there are a couple of things that I really want parents to understand. I know there's been a lot of clamor from parents to close schools now And there is research on you and I both know this. There is research out there that says that closing schools proactively doing it early Does help slow? The spread of disease it is effective But the thing I want parents to understand is there are very real public. Health concerns and risks that come with closing the school so think about it in this country. We have nearly thirty million kids. Who depend on schools for free or reduced price breakfast lunch sometimes even dinner yet and we have a million and a half kids sadly they don't have stable housing so I guess the the take homes here are just to know. This is a very complicated decision. Obviously authorities or making it Understand the pressure that they're under and figure out ways that we as communities from can pull together and help the kids that are needier in our communities when it comes to this and I've already heard of really creative thoughts around that Sort of extending meal distribution and communities for example so so we shall be on the lookout for ways to help anything

"I feel like my food tastes fresher taste different and i think when you look at fruit sometimes the reason it's hard to keep encouraging people to eat fresh fruits and veggies as often. Some of these fruits and veggies are tasteless and so that's why i think the tastes part of it shouldn't be dismissed. It's actually really critical to your diet is to have fresh food. That actually tastes incredible because that's what encourages you to reach for the strawberries when you might wanna. I make a different choice. That isn't as healthy strong. I it also affects the stability organic food because most of this industrial ways stays fresher longer tackling vaccari has less nutrients and <hes> may look better but doesn't taste better and is in better for you but organic food tends to waste waist faster. He's not preserved and he ended with moore spoilage and i imagine this is a way for us to actually encourage different agricultural oh practices by growing food sustainable way. I think it's a way for us to actually get more nutrient dense food in ways that we weren't able to before it so there's probabilities unintended consequences so you couldn't have foreseen when you were twelve years old and that's that's been the most inspiring part as i'm hearing that from other people which i think is really what encourages me to keep going because you're saying it hasn't been easy and it can be very challenging at points but it's just realizing that you know it is a connected system and when we can make a positive change whether it's in sarah lives are in the food system in one small way it actually does trickle down to every other aspect and i think that's what keeps me going about. The food system to is it. It does seem daunting to try to change the course that we're on right now but you know there's so much that we can actually do to start improve the quality of the console right so have you had any experience with resistance stints from different groups for example is cool and farmers markets. It's cool and whole food but hitting the walmart demographic is a very different demographic have have they been as open to using it and interested in it yeah..

"To your grocery store so it's not just harvesting that apple but i've been putting it on a truck putting it through cold chain storage system and then getting it to your grocery store energy. We use like it's it's incredible and you know they say that food waste in one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions but what i have found really exciting and encouraging when you look at this discouraging problem is that even really simple and small interventions. It's like cutting your own personal. Food waste just like we started to do. Recycling and composting can have impact just because there are so many inputs into creating produce that eventually eventually is just throwing away to the landfill because i was shocked to learn that we actually grow enough food to feed every single person on the planet over eight hundred million people go hungry every using all day and we will lose in some parts of the world over fifty sixty percent of our world's food simply because of inefficiencies in our storing it producing it and getting it from farm before so even though it can be really discouraging. I remember when i first learned the magnitude of the problem. I thought oh that's really depressing noon. How can somebody like me. How can a team like ours. It's even think about addressing this challenge but what i found really inspiring was this is one of those global challenges that every single person can actually do something about and even it has a big impact because you do have to think about all the land water energy human labor that went into every single fresh food item in your fridge and when you start to think about got it that way. I think it's it's inspiring to see that people make small changes. New behavior and research even shout the just being aware food ways. That's why advocacy is such a big part of our work. Just just being aware of the fact food waste is challenged can make people start to reduce their own food waste in their homes and that's that's encouraging greedy on this little product ways both a solution solution and a an inspiration to talk about the issue. The no one's talking about yeah that's what it's turned into and that was because of this grassroots movement that really i started out that farmers market and that's what keeps us going every day as seeing how people are being inspired and they're writing toss and telling us how to megyn started saying. I'm going to solve the problem of food ways. You're like i'm gonna take my grandma's recipe and see if i can help a few people and you really didn't even understand the context of what you're doing. He had the time and now it's like oh. Wow you know oh. I create a solution for a problem that i really know existed in scale and it exists and now you actually are are inspiring people to think about food waste in a different way that farmers market changed my life and i tell all entrepreneurs and inventors now that the simple act of putting your idea into the hands of somebody who could benefit from it can change everything and so it was that early feedback that made me realize okay. Maybe i'm not thinking big enough. You know maybe this could go beyond just my little idea for a farmer's market to something that could affect the food system so that that was certainly and your story is important because it inspires people think what they can do because it feels very disempowering when you think of these big global problems like climate change like you know food ways like hunger obesity agricultural problems and and here you are just one person having this global impact in in a hundred countries just from an idea that you had that you didn't know couldn't be done and it was inspiring for me too. There were so many moments that were i was ready ready to give up. I mean there were so many moments where i just felt like there's no way that i could take another step forward but there are always people at stepped up. There was the first person who ever took <unk> chance on me. His name is tony russo and he's the head of rousseau's which is a third generation family farm stand in watertown massachusetts so he was first retail customer zimmer and he taught me how to build a business from the ground up he had this experience of world war yeah so greatness or whole foods that was the first like retailer.
Naomi Osaka beats Petra Kvitova to clinch Australian Open title
"Showed a lot of hard for a twenty one year old to to finish off the match the way she did. And to to really come back in the third set and claim the championship was remarkable and tougher pitcher Kavita as well. This was a match that I really had. No, he didn't want to see anybody lose coming back from the knife attack. That patriot has suffered in check in the Czech Republic in two thousand sixteen. She didn't think she was ever gonna play tennis again. And it was just an amazing match between champions. We got a know to a particular significance in Japan. Naomi? Osaka has become a national symbol there. She has a mixed racial background. That's japan. Her Haitian father, Leonard who we never see we hear of him. We know he exists. But he he never sits in her box. Because he is so nervous to watch the match to see his daughter play that he sort of Rome's the stadium. He's never on camera. But he's always with her. And it's a fantastic story. God blessed fantastic story considering that. This is one of the things that you look at it with tenants. They did at twenty years old eighteen years old people have been talking about her being a great player. Now, she's really backed it up, and it's also in this this tournament as well that Serena Williams had a five one lead against Klickovic in the quarter-finals to have a rematch with Asaka and Serena ended up losing that matchy injured her ankle in lost the next six games and lost the lost the match. That's the beauty of tennis. It's the reason why I love tennis. So much. It's the reason why I love baseball. You can't run out the clock in this sports. Got you gotta get that. You gotta you gotta win. The final point you have to get the final out. Otherwise things can happen. Let's turn a little bit of that football game. Just a week away. The Rams are back in L A again against the patriots with what seems like their annual innocent of the Super Bowl. A lot of people though, still aren't over that controversial no call a pass interference by officials in the NFC championship game between the Rams and the saints. And then also the officiating between in the patriots game with the the phantom roughing the passer call against Tom Brady in the chiefs patriots game. It's a really interesting thing. Skype because you want to look at football and say that the sport is obviously in trouble for all the problems that had has aesthetically. Of course, it has problems. You can't tell what
Recovering from brain damage
"We've talked about the skin the liver and the heart. But what about when the brain gets damaged Kavita bossy is a strict survivor in his shed her story of life after strike with us, then two thousand fifteen when I was thirty eight years old. I was taken into an e with a life threatening illness severity night brain hemorrhage prior to this leading a happy healthy lifestyle. I just didn't expect something like this would happen to me the night it happened. I. Had come home from work a little earlier with a headache and watch some TV and I woke up then approximately eleven PM screaming with huge pain as if a sledgehammer had hit the back of my school, and I had a seizure then and collapsed. I was treated at sofa trial hospital Manchester with various oppressions over the next few weeks. My life now is updating to this new me, I have trouble with short term memory loss. Severe headaches difficulties with certain noises Costra phobic hiring Zayed's. An also personality shift are now have very straightforward black and white thinking, and this is difficult for people who know me to stand career Bessie who recently published a book on her experiences who room twenty three surviving a brain hemorrhage. Having a stroke can have a devastating effect on your life and recovery especially difficult because the damaged areas of the brain. Paul permanently dead. All they I spoke to neurologist Tom com. Icu of the university of California, Los Angeles about research. He's pursuing to re-grow brain tissue after a stroke key cell types, in the brain the neurons that send the signals really are fixed after a certain age in humans somewhere between two and five years old. We don't get any more brain cells. And so we can't as a result regenerate, new brain cells themselves in large quantities. And so when there is a area of dead brain, you can't re-grow into that area. Normally from the brain next to it because the brain cells themselves, the neurons are what we call in the scientific field post, my Totic, they can't divide inform substantial quantities of new cells. Would you call the scarring than this? These that sells. Yes, what happens is the the area dies. And then some of these cells called glee proliferate and wall off the area of damage. And they participate along with other sales in the formation of scar. That helps contain the damage, but may also have a second effect of limiting some of the repair and recovery. How would that reflect in sort of the treatments you can give people currently as many will know, the there are no medical therapies for recovery in stroke. The treatment is activity based physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy. These are very limited in their efficacy. And so there are no therapies that stimulate recovery stroke, and what we've been focusing on is the science of what the sales do after stroke, and how we might develop medical therapies that enhance that recovery. Right. Yeah. How how is your lab investigating us? We're very interested in what the brain starts to do. And then gets and then get stock and doesn't progress fully. So we've been investigating the molecules that stimulate brain cells to form new connections or the. Molecules that stimulate blood vessels to grow and branch out in the tissue, adjacent to stroke. And our reasoning is if we can understand those molecules, we might understand why they don't produce a more full recovery, and then develop drugs that boost those molecular systems and boost recovery how you testing out the properties the
"kavita" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Is no child labour anymore. In more sectors, certainly in exports that the idea is to say that these products are clean. They're not touched the hands of child labor because if they're seen as connected with child labor, they weren't get any money for them. They won't be able to sell them. Exactly. We don't even acknowledge their presence. So when the thirties come across child labourers, she says that instead of helping them they want him to disappear and children are found working. The state response is come in white vans. Put them in and take them away to childcare homes where they locked up away from their families and the state caused the family and design the child should never ever be seen like this again. And whenever least most of the children go back to work because the problems that drove them to work in the first place haven't been solved, and this is where Kavita retinas organization comes in. They meet child labor is in their villages and ask then not their parents why they work some talk about the hot meal, they get to the factory. Some said they didn't get the support. They needed at school others said they had to look after their younger siblings or fetch water all of them had different reasons. But they had one thing in common. They were not willing to transfer the burden onto the family, for instance, if they were fetching water, they would not okay with seeing that your mother fish water and you in school because they were seeing my mother has a lot to do already. They had to find solutions that wouldn't put more pressure on their parents and say Kavita, CNAs, charity, turn to what's known as the penchant India's local councils and a lot of the work of my organization has been to work with these local.
