Should Business Leaders Receive Bonuses for Good Behavior?

"Of the UK's top 100 corporations now pay their chief executives are bonus for meeting environmental, social and corporate governance standards or in other words, says Martin White of the campaign group U. K Shareholders Association. For running the business in a responsible manner. I think that if you're paying somebody to run a company, you shouldn't give him a bonus for doing their job properly protecting the environment. Combating climate change, looking after your workforce promoting diversity are not ripping off. Your customers are surely just part of the modern CEOs job, he says. If you've got an executive who won't behave well, unless you get in the bonus Should you really have them? Managing our company's Annabelle Denham of the Free Market Institute of Economic Affairs, also has doubts about the ethical bonus. She thinks it looks suspiciously like a ruse. I do you think that this is just an opportunity for companies to pay this? Here's more without being lambasted by social media and the public executive pay hikes are much easier to defend when they're tied to a worthy cause. But do you think that this ethical bonuses quite a neat way for businesses to deflect criticism, criticism of executive pay that's ebbed and flowed in Britain over the past 30 years.

While we believe things were being managed appropriately. You know, looking back, we could have stepped in to assess the situation and understand what steps were being taken maybe a little bit earlier.

Florida Law May Thwart Effort by Cruise Industry to Set Sail

"A seven night Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale, with all crew and adult passengers vaccinated. Cruise industry has been shut down for the past 15 months by the Corona virus pandemic. The CDC said last month that cruise ships with nearly all passengers and crew vaccinated can resume sailing. But NPR's Greg Allen reports there is a problem it violates a Florida law. This ad by celebrities sums up the relief and excitement among cruise companies. Some day is finally here and we're ready to sail beyond again. Extended shutdown has cost the industry more than $17 billion in direct losses. The celebrity cruise departing June 26 will be the first under new CDC protocols. CBC says ships can resume sailing under two scenarios. The first is after conducting tests cruises with masks and social distancing in place show they can keep passengers and crew safe. The second scenario, when advocated by the industry, allows ships to resume sailing immediately as long as 95% of passengers and crew are vaccinated. Chris Gray Faust is managing editor of the website. Cruise critic. People will not have to wear masks, they will not have to do social distancing and at least in the US, they'll be able to do shore excursions without you're staying in a cruise ship bubble type of situation. The idea of requiring all adult passengers to be vaccinated is popular not just with the companies but also cruise passengers. House says the survey conducted last week found 80% of cruise passengers said they would prefer to sail on a ship with a vaccine requirement. So what we're finding is that Abbott cruisers want to get back to see, but they would overwhelmingly prefer to be on a ship with vaccines. That's what passengers want. It's what cruise lines want. But it's not what Florida Governor Rond de Santis once. He recently signed a bill passed by the Republican Legislature at his request, which bans company from requiring any customer to show proof of vaccination. Under the law, each violation carries a $5000 fine. Asked about it last week, De Santis said, applies to cruise lines and that if they violated, they'll pay. We are going to enforce Florida law.

course has been working around the clock to try to make a vaccine covert nineteen cases increased by the thousands the use of various medications has been widely debated use a bit of some of the questions on this topic and we have some answers we're joined now by Dr G. news shows Johnny a rheumatologist from the university of California San Francisco and NPR science correspondent Joe Palca doctor goes down let me apologize in advance if I mispronounced your name I'll try and do better next time at let me ask both you and where Joe Palca first one drug we've been hearing a lot about of course is hydroxy clerk when before we go into answering questions what is it this was a drug that was originally developed I think around World War two as an alternative to quinine to treat the malaria and that at some point people notice that it had an interesting I'm positive effect on patients with rheumatoid arthritis so it was used for that for a while it seems to have some impact on the immune system and then at some point again people decided to try it since they were trying a lot of things as a therapy for this nuke corona virus and the first evidence was that from testing in the laboratory look fairly promising but these are just sells of course so then they tried it in people and there was some limited success in China's small study and there was some limited studies success in France and it it's suddenly caught on now why we're talking about it well I think that has a lot to do with our president whose who's been relentlessly pushing it and saying how confident he is that it'll be helpful well that'll introduce our first question from David in Houston I was wondering why trump and his administration are pushing hydrochloric when when inspections disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci has argued against its effectiveness in the fight against carbon nineteen okay guys Downey thanks again for being with us what are doctors scientists health care workers say about this it's a great great question from David some very small poorly controlled or uncontrolled studies from France and China demonstrated the hydroxy Corp when may have benefits but the study's really had serious methodological flaws when we review them carefully and therefore you know this evidence should should be considered inconclusive at this time the bottom line is that the treatment is experimental and we need randomized well controlled trials to know if hydroxy Cork when is useful at all to treat cove in nineteen another question from Elon in Poughkeepsie New York I thinking in hardcore going for ten years Fuhrman character right as his afford me any protection from the virus doctor goes down they pay any evidence so we don't have any evidence at this time that people with rheumatoid or arthritis or lupus taking hydroxy Cork when are protected from cold at nineteen in fact data that we've collected over the last few weeks suggests that people with these conditions are getting infected and therefore telling my patients not to let their guard down they should continue to you know follow strict social distancing if they can Nancy in California has a question that the economy grows out of that she writes I'm concerned that the interest in the drug as a possible treatment for corona virus will restrict the availability of the drug for legitimate uses are you concerned about that doctor for you and your patience I am concerned about a drug shortages and we're hearing about them from patients all over the country this can be a serious problem because interruptions and and treatments can lead to autoimmune disease flare ups and so I'm recommending that my patients call different pharmacies in their area including mail order pharmacies if they're running into shortages if you have a question by the way for doctor Yazdani and NPR's Joe Palca you consent to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or share it on social media using the hashtag NPR conversation a lot lots of questions also about Advil and ibuprofen here's Jordan from Sacramento should I avoid taking ibuprofen right now during this pandemic I work at a Medical Center Sacramento we haven't experienced a surge of covered patients yet but we are preparing for if it does come for the taking ibuprofen feeds coronavirus is that true doctors Downey does it so Jordan at this time there's no evidence that ibuprofen is is harmful but this concern initially arose because of sars corona virus to the virus that causes code nineteen binds to ourselves via a receptor called east to and this receptor is increased and I be approached by ibuprofen in animal experiments and so there was really a hypothetical concern that this might worsen infection in humans however we can't extrapolate those animal experiments to humans and we don't have any data to that the fact that humans what about Tylenol I don't know it's safe to take and it might even be a better choice for older patients because as a better safety profile for for people that have underlying conditions like kidney disease next question is about food supplements Pawling New York I understand the immune response can be one of the causes for longer out there organ failure is it dangerous to take too many media supplements including zinc vitamin C. Dr Dani is immune response partly responsible for organ failure what we know about food supplements under the circumstances so they get their minions response can actually cause serious problems in the later stages of covert nineteen so it's a legitimate concern but we don't know if supplements help code nineteen infection and I usually supplements taken at lower recommended doses are safe but I would avoid taking megadoses of these vitamins vitamin C. and zinc can cause nausea or other gastrointestinal symptoms and high doses of vitamins like vitamin D. can cause even more serious problems like high blood calcium levels and so I I would recommend caution assurance from Texas asked of have patience our got seasonal flu shot get well quicker or have fewer symptoms what about those who got an ammonia shot let me ask your doctor has done any correlation it's an excellent question Sherrin vaccinations against flu and pneumonia can be helpful and that's primarily because they decrease the risk of having a simultaneous infection with Corbett nineteen but we have been seeing reports of patients were co infected with viruses like flu and cold at nineteen and we worry that this will lead to a more severe disease course Dr junior shows Johnny is a rheumatologist in university of California San Francisco thanks for being with us a and m-commerce NPR science correspondent Joe Palca if you have questions for us about small businesses or child care please let us know you can send us your questions to NPR dot org slash national.

I was tired of working for clients like retail banking traffic reporting hazardous waste recycling nothing that really blew my skirt at so I quit my full time job and I started consulting and I started taking classes to figure out what else I could do with my life and I found this brochure for the school of the museum of fine arts in Boston I thought well this looks interesting and I went to

art school I try my best to look artsy to fit in even though I'm not wearing pearls they are in blaze and on my chest students range from early teens to late fifties and they're all there for different reasons and seasoned artist wanna jump starting younger artists want to build a portfolio summer professional others blocked I just feel really out of place and road our instructor introduces herself and she says there is no right way to make art and there is no wrong way to make art and this makes me extremely nervous because I had been raised that there is a right way and a wrong way to do most everything I just as in the class is going to focus on process the process of art making not the end result and this makes me more nervous because I've been raised to focus on in results and not just any in results but the best in results and there are no grades things careen out of control if there are no grades how will I know if I'm over cheating I need to know I'm over a

had sex with a naked man your problem is you don't know how to draw this naked man's essence and everybody else apparently does know how to draw his essence is you're basically getting out their easels and knowingly getting out sheets of paper and charcoal and other drawing mediums with which they excel and I'm just standing there like the proverbial deer in headlights and I began to watch and imitate because I am clueless but competitive and I asked you you is standing next to me and also mature student I see Judy what are the supposed to look like because of course I think there's only one right way to do this they're all going to draw the same image and she looks at me bewildered and says they're all going to look different I'm paralyzed what is mine supposed to look why can't

failure which is a lot of times in one hour it's AT and a shame is enormous and I am so mortified how inept I and I and beating myself up for every tempting anything different for even trying anything new and I'm in a literal physical pain I'm so far out of my comfort level I mean I actually hurt and I consider crying again and that's when Bob comes over to me and shows me what an amazing teachers can do I don't even know what he says all I know is he talks me off the legend breaks that vice grip the had a hold of me and I start to draw at the end of class Bob takes one of my gesture drawings with to put on the wall with a bunch of other student drawings to discuss them and no one laughs at me or my drawing it actually holds it soon I have drawn a naked man I feel like I can do anything

"To Trump said the story just reinforces what they felt before anger and outrage, Brian man, NPR news. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. It's Edward Goldman without dog on KCRW. Tony Blair loaned. One of the best known Los Angeles artists figuratively and literally nailed it in his current exhibition at corn gallery exhibition running through November second for those familiar with his art. It's always a bit of a challenge to decide is he painter sculptor or collage artist. For me. Here's all three. I've been following his career for forty years and continue to be intrigued and then then world, but he's choose of materials and the unique way he plies them their land collect decades old team packaging and metal signs which he cuts into small shapes and proceeds to nail onto a wood panel in his signature style of collage villages work in the exhibition. Self is based on a polaroid image over young Tony land taken by his friend. Andy warhol. Close examination of the surface of his collages makes one thing that the source of the artist's inspiration must be native American quilting with a male playing the role of the needle. The number of new three dimensional works on display in the shape of Tango boxes, installed perpendicular to the wall. As a result. One can see main sides of that proverbial coin. In half an hour. Drive south on the four five freeway brings us to the Long Beach museum of art to see the first comprehensive exhibitions of paintings by the well-known Los Angeles Artis Johnson cine for several decades. The focus of the artists practice has been portrait of Latina day, laborers whom Sensini fines on the streets. Hold Sasha's and hires to pose for him at an hourly rate because the wearable time or his models is limited the has to work quickly to capture the personalities and certain vulnerability as well as the tension between the artist and model their body language indicates that these young men are not accustomed to being models. And definitely the artist's intention is not to beautify them. Instead Sunseeker focuses on the inherent, pride and bravado of this hard working, man. Even though all of them posed for the artist in his studio. It's walls dissolve and disappear. Well, all day liberals, quietly sit or stand staring at us, the artist's brushstrokes create a storm of color, Iran them, looking at this as I swear I could hear the noise over white paintbrush moving wildly across the canvas. I also want to praise long museum of art who not only organizing this important Solex additional Jones sensing work, but also for the but particularly attractive design or the exhibition Taisho theatricality that echoes the exuberance and sophistication of Sensini's brushwork. It's been Golden Dog on KCRW. KCRW sponsors include.

"KCRW sponsors include FOX pictures based on a true story, can you ever forgive me stars Melissa McCarthy as Lee Israel, an author who turns her art into deception when she can't make ends meet in select theaters tomorrow. I'm Michael silver blunt this bookworm, and I'm talking with Tommy orange about his book. They're they're a study a story of twelve urban Indians whose lives converge at the big Oakland, pal. Now, I say the big Oakland Powell, but that's a construct right? This isn't a big Oakland. There isn't there's there's been various different small ones throughout the bay area over time. And I've been on a committee that put went together nothing on the scale of what I made up. There are that the big ones in stadiums at different parts of the country that I was basing it on. It's it's not going to complete fabrication. But there's nothing like that in Oakland. Well, you mentioned a janitor. And that he belongs in fiction. I got a letter. And I'm hoping the person who read it as listening. I got a letter from a listener who sent Michael. I'm a janitor. I dropped out of high school. I didn't go to college. I never liked English class. But I've been listening to your show. And once I'm not sure why I picked up one of the books you were talking about. And in the process, I made friends with the guy who owns the used bookstore in my town. We read these books together. Now, I never would have dreamt it was possible. But I am a reader because of your show. And so, you know, getting a letter like that were you putting characters who wouldn't normally be in fiction into your book. These are. I know what sappy these are acts of salvation, and that's our job here on earth. To help others have the things that allowed us to stay alive for me that was reading that was books. I don't know what it was that didn't click with me rating. You know, I wasn't a good student, and they sort of regular are there what teachers would say like, he's not applying himself or whatever. I read certain books along the way. And I never caught whatever it is. When you realize how meaningful reading particularly fiction for me for whatever reason. I it didn't happen for me. Intil know I was twenty four twenty four years old, and I was working at used bookstore. And and there was a single moment where the novel, particularly something just clicked, and I realized like, oh, this is this is what novelist is. And it was it was about one hundred pages into a confederacy of dunces. I was on a break from from the east bookstore. I was eating a Donut and reading Ignatius in sort of a perfect combination of events. And that was the moment. There's another moment with Chile Plath in the bell jar, and she was doing something with the image of the bell jar. And it was just the most profound thing to me. And I just didn't know you could do I mean, that's the thing about reading and fiction and. People who don't know they love it. You can do something with consciousness and with thinking and writing a novel is another way of thinking like a better way of thinking thing delillo said that somewhere just something wakes up any of that you didn't know as possible. That's what I love about reading. How it explores consciousness, and how much you can do that in some ways, you will never be able to really express what it's doing the first novel that made me wanna be novels was Alice in wonderland and through the looking glass why because I was sick and tired of people talking sense to me I wanted to hear nonsense. I mean later on we got talking heads and stop making sense. But I needed them the adults around me to stop making so much sense. All the time knife was already painful, it's more painful when you're a child. If you're lucky you grow out of some of that pain, some people who don't grow out of it become riders. Think that's an accurate description? I think it is. And I guess, you know, I'm always in some sense looking for books like yours like there there that have buried in them. A hidden set of instructions were structures the characters here are all they all have something to teach one another, but they rarely meet other. So you the reader are learning what the characters have to teach each other, even if they can never tell each other. And that's struck me as being whether that's the way, you would put it or not it struck me as being brilliant device because you know, most of the time we don't get to teach anyone anything, but sometimes the reader. Can be the beneficiary of all sorts of instruction. I think you know, some people will say like who's your audience, or do you think of the reader when you write and often people will say like, no you stick to your artistic vision. But for me at some point in my development as a writer, I came to this probably sounds basic. But this idea that that you have to keep the reader in mind, and this became very important to me that that I was wanting to meet the reader at a halfway point. And that reading is an experience is sort of communion with with another mind, and to communicate things as clearly and as well as possible became one of the most important aspects to well the way I was writing. But a certain point I'm curious you become a student. The MSA program at the institute of American Indian arts, and that must be one of the moments of deciding to keep the audience in mind that there are people you're talking to who need you. And I wonder how you felt about your time there. I mean, I I loved my experience there, you know. In wanting to publish the book mainly wanted to get a teaching job there. I loved it so much and that ended up happening plus a lot more, obviously. But my main goal was to get a teaching job because I like teaching and now like the community there. It was around that time that I was thinking of the reader and thinking of audience probably the first half of writing the book was just you know, in a vacuum pretty much and in the second half was in a community. So it was at that point that turning point for a long time. People were at me. To read Jewish fiction, and I was afraid of reading fiction about things and people that I already knew because they were American Jews. They would probably they probably had figured out how to live. I didn't have the. Lower upper-class Jewish existence. That was being written about buying you name. It Philip Roth or Saul bellow or all these people how at ease were you in defining and seeing yourself to find as an native American writer. Well, actually, you know the. The beginning of reading for me was not with native earning at all. A lot of the reservation writing reservation based or rural based stuff actually made me feel more isolated and less like a native writer or like, I I don't belong there. And so I didn't read a lot. You know, we were talking earlier about South American writers and listed different people. That were my favorites. I read a lot of work in translation, and that spoke to me for whatever reason. And so took a very long time to circle back to, you know, aside from John Kennedy tool and Sylvia Plath took a long time for me to get back to to this country. And some of the writers that I now Dennis Johnson became really big for me because he was writing ugly. Beautiful way. When I read their there by my guest today, Tommy orange. I was really thrilled to be reading writing. That was not fulfilling people's ethnic desires for more ethnicity in fiction. It seemed to be abound. Good writing whether ethnic or not the first criteria. Is it good? Is it good? Is it moving has. It never been seen before has. It never been said before am I giving my people and others as well a sensible life. They don't know because when I fell to build there. There was not only was there there there in Oakland. I felt that there was a there there in the book, and I hadn't seen. A neighborhood into suet two of the modern soared as well captured as the neighborhood that you can't hear in your novel there there. Thank you. Among the many reasons, I love literature is. These little moments that you catch where you. You've only ever maybe thought it and the author hits.
