"Decide to merge. The easy thing is figuring out the numbers, figuring out all the legal issues that document, but then somebody's got to bring these two families together. How do you do it? Jack, you're hitting the hardest issue. When these mergers occur, the question is there a culture match and is there a mission match? I mentioned earlier medicine is my mission. Not all health systems have the same mission. So can you sit down on a piece of paper? And can you say how patients come first? Where that falls in your priority. And how you begin to approach it. And what your actual value systems are. I'll give you an example. We went through another individual who you know, you've interviewed both, I think, Jerry Fitzgerald and Brian Conley. And father hassler, too. George hassler. And George hassler. George has helped us build the culture at oakwood. And we work through a very long period of time. Where we had to build from the ground up, a belief system. And that blade system was based upon the oakwood credo, compassion respect, excellence diversity and ownership. I remember it today. And each one of those had line items of behaviors. And when we had embedded that into the culture, in terms of recruitment, we were kind of low end of the totem pole down a Dearborn trying to recruit people, and we had to kind of get what we could take. We could take what we could get. What we developed the oakwood credo and the word spread, we had more applicants for those jobs than we could count. And we could recruit superb people, because they believed in the oakwood credo. And every day when you'd start every meeting, whether you started at the board, whether it started at the executive meeting, or you're meeting on the floor with your nurses making rounds. You started by reciting the oakwood creative. So it's the belief system that counts. And I think that when you take two organizations and you can say, yeah, we can put that together and therefore the cultures will match. Then you're going to have a very good outcome. But it really depends upon making that commitment up front. And to me, that's part of the basics of what you do. And if you don't follow this basic, you have difficulty with the merger. And if you do follow the basics, none of these are ever easy, then one must remember it's something you have to work at extraordinarily actively because as I learned, negative cultures prevail. Unless you actively work at a positive culture. All right, you and your wife, your oldest son, Michael, special needs. Yes. And you mentioned Jerry Fitzgerald of awkward. Iconic. He and his wife also had a son special needs. And the two of the two groups, the two of you, where the four of you were instrumental in starting eaten academy. I believe in 1986, 26 years ago. Talk to us about eaten academy. So when Ginny and I moved back from Pennsylvania and we moved back to the Detroit area and we had a special needs kid. He was enrolled at the adventure school, which was the only school for kids like this in the state. And the fitzgeralds had been rolled their son Tom. That's where we met them. We became best friends. We realized that this school needed to have a resource base. It needed to have a permanent home. And it needed to have a stable management infrastructure dedicated to that mission. So with that, Jerry and his typical fashion went out and bought the old school and eaten avenue. The old Catholic school there. And said, okay, we got a school now. And Jerry was the first chair of the eating academy board. And after a surgery that I had had and I was really feeling not up to it, is Jenny put me in a car and we went down to Jerry's office, and at that point in time Jerry said to me, well, as he would, as Jerry was good at, he said, I'm going to step out of the academy board and they looked at me. So you're the next chair of the board. And I said, you got your while someone's down and you can't say no. That is a true story. But we started that and we put together a board of individuals and I would say the recruitment of Jenny and others, who are recognized the community need for this. And so we could put together a group of people who said, we need this in our community. That included originally pat Hartman, from Z Bart. Giuliani had been leaving. Nancy vlasic. And very, very importantly, mister mort Harris. Let's go. Okay, we're looking out the window to west grand boulevard. We got Henry Ford hospital on the right, but on the left is the Brigitte Harris. Cancer. Institute. $25 million donation from wart in her honor. He was an angel for you guys like it was an angel for so many. Tell us about more tears. I can't say the war was like a best friend. But mort mort was a man who could look forward. And a dent in new a community need when he saw it. And he was a man of action. And would try to make sure that happened. And the action that turned it around for us for eating academy. Was we decided we would make a kresge foundation grant application. And we're frankly told, sorry, we don't do things like this. Kresge only does bigger things. And we don't give out grants to folks like that. We wrote a $1 million grant and I was talking to Morton I said we can't get through the door. And Mark said, well, make an appointment, and just go make an appointment and we did that with the new headmistress. And he said, I'll go with you. So we went there, we met with the head of the kresge foundation at that time. And we presented our case. And he said, you have a good case. But we don't do this. But I'm here today because you're here with mister mort Harris. And he said this is worthy. He said, write the application for the grant, send it to me directly. We got a million bucks. And that's how we started our capital campaign. Thank you, mister Harris. Good for the community. He gave 25 million to Henry Ford. That's the largest gift Henry Ford ever got. He also gave 10 million bucks to Wayne state university in the school of medicine for scholarships for inner city kids who want to become doctors. Yes. At his funeral, a little more than a year ago, died at a 101, there were like 20 of these physicians in kids. Who have become doctors because of what errors. A mention. To say the least. All right. Whenever I've had somebody on the show that's had a special needs child, doctor. They refer to those people as their angel, their hero, their teacher, their gift from God. Why?

"So they can focus on what they should be focused on, which is caring for their patients. So we're trying to do all that for them. And we've now partnered with the national association of community health centers that oversees all 15,000 of these across the country. So that they know who to come to. And we're now amazingly being inundated with interest from health centers across the country who want to look into this. So that's the turnkey part of this. The financing part of this is solar has proliferated in our country as you well know over the 30 years through the use of tax credits. And so, well, let's say up until the inflation reduction act, the way that a nonprofit municipality school university would typically put solar on their building or campus was through a power purchase agreement and that's where you have an investor who wants to take advantage of the tax credits that that nonprofit is not eligible for, financing the system for the tax credits. Which is 30%, but they also get the depreciation of the asset biscuits a little convoluted and complicated, but many people know about this structure. And then that entity then that got the solar on their building has now reduced power costs because they're producing much of their power through solar. So they're paying less to their electricity company because they're getting their power from the solar panels that were put on their building for them. So now they take that savings from their energy bill from the electricity bill and they use it to pay off the balance of the system after the tax credits and depreciation. So that's the structure we can do for health centers because they're all nonprofits. We have socially minded tax investors who believe in this mission and we're able to also get pretty low cost of debt from foundations, the kresge foundation just gave us a program related investment because they care about this issue of climate change and health. And so we can pay for the systems through the use of tax investors, low cost of debt, no upfront cost to the health center, and then they just pay it off through the savings they're now getting on their electric bill. And we try to do it for a short of a term as possible so that they can own it with in 5 years if they want to. Okay, so in my writings, beyond so just let me ask you, and I realize this is hard to average because the size of community health centers and providers vary. They're building sizes vary. But can you answer this question that generally what amount of consumption

"You one for two feels good because zero for one felt really, really awful. When they knocked down the city to try and knock down the one third of Tiger state and we call it Nathan field because it was really the original navy field 1912 footprint with the upper deck that was added in the early 20s over that footprint. When they knocked that down, it took me a year before I could drive by the site or before I could actually go back to work on trying to save the field so it wouldn't be paved over for a parking lot or wouldn't be used as a dog park or a CVS or something. It took a long time, and I said that I wasn't going to lose hamtramck stadium. I was going to save and try to make state am or die trying. I don't think it ever came close to killing me, but I work real hard on it. And I did say in my June 20th speech because I organized the event and I was the MC, I did say in my brief remarks that if it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to save a ballpark because I had help from my cofounders, preservation community, from donors, from baseball fans, from that former field ground screw now they have traffic stadium grounds, crew will maintain the grounds for almost free. I mean, we pay their expenses, but they volunteer their labor from the city of hamtramck from the Wilson foundation from the kresge foundation that Detroit tigers foundation, from Wayne county, Michigan, which allocated federal funds to it and manage the construction project from the National Park Service and I'm probably forgetting somebody. I mean, literally it took all those people to save them traffic stadium, but we did it. You asked earlier, and if I still have a little bit of time before you get the shepherd's crook and yanking off stage, what the future is, there are three masonry buildings, mostly brick, but also some concrete block that are either underneath the edge of the back edge of the grandstand or sticking out down the third base line where they had been covered till the grand stand was reduced in size. One of them will become next year bathrooms and locker rooms, which is great. The funding is already in place. The other two, there's no money for yet. We hope within the next two to three years to have them rehabilitated for concessions, first aid, security, storage, and a small exhibit area. If you ever been to league park in Cleveland, the Cleveland based history museum run by a bunch of good people is a really nice, small museum there right on site well worth going to and we hope to have a nice small museum there in the rehabilitated masonry buildings. We also are going to add a period appropriate sign in front of the stadium and the reason it won't be on the stadium is I can find absolutely no historical evidence there ever was a sign on the stadium. So we're going to put a sign on between the parking lot and the stadium the announcement stadium. We're going to put banners 300 stadium on the street leading up to what street pole banners. And we are working on an outdoor interpretive exhibits on the stadium site and the Friends of historic camp Trevor stadium are now affiliated with Detroit historical society, which runs the Detroit historical museum, and they are great people, and we're working on, well, there's a Negro league exhibit a pop up because I bet at the end to try to start all museum right now, we had done that originally in 2019. We brought it back this year with some updates. We're going to be working on in the near future, travel exhibits that could be traveled to colleges, high schools, libraries, senior centers, bank lobbies, ballparks you name it, so they would travel around southeast Michigan showing the history of the Negro leagues in Michigan, the history Detroit stars, turkey sterns, hamtramck stadium. Well, there's a website, hamtramck stadium dot org, that's HAM, TR, AMC K, if you go to that site which we will link to on the show page, there's a get involved tab where you can find out how you can help if you're interested and you can contact Gary and his collaborators in this project. So we've been speaking to Gary Gillette and Gary congrats on helping shepherd this thing to. If not completion, at least pretty impressive milestone. We are close. It has been saved. It might take longer to do some things. People talk about putting lights on the field. I'm not sure that's going to happen. The cost is less of an obstacle than whether the community wants lights there because that will mean they'll be events till 10 o'clock in the evening all summer right now the park closes at dusk and the community around it may not want, and I come activities. You know, we had a professional firm that builds minor league and college failed, build the infield, but the outfield needs to be regraded and recited, and we hope to have the money do that next year. Amongst other things. So I mean, there's more work to be done, but it has been saved. And I can tell you that the day that we got the African American civil rights grant to do the planning was the day I knew that we were going to succeed. I couldn't have told you in 2017 when the grant was announced how long it would take, and I wouldn't have guessed another four years, 5 years, depending on which event you take restoration of field or the grandstand. But I knew we were going to succeed. So I'm at peace with that and I'm hoping to raise some more money the rest of this year and then get back to finishing my book off because there's a lot of new stories to tell just like other Negro league scholars who researched the league. Almost always something new that hasn't been discovered or was discovered in sort of forgotten or the story is passed down inaccurately and I'm looking forward to telling the story that turkey stern's and Detroit stars completely and accurately for the first time. Well, we'll be looking forward to it too, so Gary, thanks for your efforts and thanks for filling us and great to talk to you. Well, thank you, Ben. Thank you, mag, you guys are great. All right, well, thank you to Ron. Thank you to Gary. Hope you enjoyed listening to them as much as we enjoyed talking to them. If you are wondering, the other three surviving former Negro leaguers from the 1920 to 1948 period are reverend Bill greeson, Clyde golden, and, of course, Willie Mays, who broke in with the Birmingham black barons in 1948, the same year that Ron was with the New York Cubans, different leagues, though, BlackBerries were in the Negro American League, Cubans were in the Negro national league. Before we go just wanted to read a couple of responses from Orioles fans who wrote in after hearing our discussion of what the Orioles did and didn't do on the trade deadline reaction pod. We talked a little bit about Baltimore quote unquote selling, not as much as they might have, but maybe more than they had to, I think, make a night differed slightly on how we viewed that. This email is from Josh, who says, I have a question about the meaning of selling at the trade deadline. I'm a lifelong Orioles fan and it seems like the general consensus, including on the effectively wild trade deadline episode, so that the Orioles decided to sell at the deadline this year by moving Trey Mancini and Jorge Lopez in exchange for mostly prospects, but to my mind selling involves moving players in such a way that one the team's current roster gets meaningfully worse and two, the team's competitive window is pushed back. Obviously, I understand the fan attachment to Mancini, especially since I've got plenty myself, so I'm not trying to discount that element in this particular transaction, but I'm not sure the Orioles meant either of those criteria this year, so I didn't particularly think of what they were doing as selling until I saw it.

"Now it took another 5 years before we get our first major grant a grant of $50,000 from the National Park Service. It was one of the earliest African American civil rights grants they made, and that allowed the city of hamtramck to hire a architectural firm that did a historic structures report, and there they go in there and look at every board and every nail in every brick and figure out where it came from. What is condition is, how it should be rehabilitated. That's the phrase they use. And what the cost might be. And that provided us a road map and then two years later we raised a $115,000, including a $50,000 grant from the Michigan economic development corporation to restore the field, which we did in 2020. Of course, the pandemic put everything on a different timeline than we expected. Sure. We restored the field and asked the city to let us name it turkey Stearns field, which they did. So it is officially Norman turkey stern's field at hamtramck stadium. And we started doing programming. Previous to that, people played on mown lawn with weeds all over the base paths and pitcher's mound that was barely distinguishable from the grass. Although people played there in 2019, we had Jack White and his worst deck bat company crew, which is co owned by Ian kinsley, a former tigers and rangers player, play at what they call a sandlock game there against some of our local local joes and janes, Vanessa, ivy rose, turkey stern's granddaughter, played center field in that game. It was very sweet. It had a very moving and Jack and war stick donated while ultimately $40,000 to us before and after that game. So that was another big help both for publicity and for funding. And then we restored the field in 2020 and then Wayne county, Michigan, got involved. And they persuaded the Detroit tigers foundation to make a $410,000 grant. They got a second grant from the National Park Service African American civil rights fund for 490,000, and then we were off to the races. We got I think about 800,000. I was fighting from the Ralph Wilson foundation. Which is focused on southeast Michigan and western New York State because he was a longtime owner of the Buffalo Bills, but he was a Detroit native until he died. And we also got a couple 100,000 from the kresge foundation. That plus the pandemic plus a bunch of construction delays and weather delays meant the ballpark wasn't ready to be used. The grandstand until about June 16th, a four days before our big event, and by the way, you said it was the day after Juneteenth, which is true, but it's actually a federal Juneteenth holiday was on Monday. So we called it a Juneteenth event. The historical data of the 19th, but of course we're fond of making holidays into three day weekends. So the federal government designated the 20th as a holiday. And we had a rededication ceremony, which Ron spoke at, as well as any number of other people. And then we had a Negro leagues tribute game, two high school age teams, one from Chicago and RBI team from Chicago that was coached by one of double duty Radcliffe's descendants and the Detroit stars team. We had them dressed up in replica, legally uniforms, you know, they're not the authentic heavy wolf flannels. What we did research into the logos and the lettering and the colors and the team from Detroit was African American high school prospects, mostly underclassmen, and they played on the field as a tribute to Ron teasley, and I'm happy to say that it had some effect. I just learned from the family last week that Ron is going to be given a treasure award from the Michigan sports Hall of Fame this year. And given that Ron's been around for a while and I as well as others have talked to them about putting him in the Hall of Fame, I have to think that our tribute game pushed them over the line. So that's great. And can you tell us a little bit about the history of hamtramck stadium? Just when it was built, who played there, how long, et cetera? Sure, I'll try to give you the two to three minute version because I just yesterday spoke a half hour on it. The woman who was guiding the tour said, I said, how much time do I have when I got done speaking? He said, as much time as you want, I said, my wife would tell you, never to say that. I could be, you would miss dinner if he gave me that much time. And this was that before noon at the grandstand. I'm trying to say it was built in 1930 for the Detroit stars Negro league team, but it tried stars founded 1919, one year before the Negro national league, they were charter members of the Negro national league in 1920 from 1919 to 1929 they played in a park on the east side of trike called Mac park, which is really a big venue for semi pro baseball and semi pro football, but they also did soccer and boxing and you name it there. Back in those days, outdoor boxing in the summertime was really a big deal and there were of course boxing clubs, fight clubs all over town. So you had a lot of boxing outdoors. In 1929, there was a disastrous fire in July and the local neighbors white people racist banded together to petition city council and hiring attorney to prevent the Detroit stars from rebuilding the grandstand that had burned down. The park actually was still usable. Many historical sources say an accurately that it burned down, but one out of three grandstands burned down. There was also bleacher seating, and within three days they had bulldozed the wreckage, put in some temporary seating, and they played a double header against a Kansas City monarchs three days after the fire. But in order to get permission from the city to continue using the site because they wouldn't let him rebuild the grandstand the Detroit stars owner agreed to leave the neighborhood at the end of the year. So they were chased out of the east side of Detroit by intolerant white people, and they landed in hamtramck, which is a small city at then, probably about 40 to 50,000 people now about 27, 28,000, completely enclosed by the city of Detroit, but it is a separate city, home

radio grade every day and also those who listen It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Sarah mccammond And I'm Steve and Steve Good morning It's said that many people rarely talk by phone anymore People text or email or DM or whatever but that apparently does not apply to the presidents of the United States and Russia President Biden speaks by phone with Vladimir Putin today their second talk this month And Paris Charles maines is covering the story and I want to pause to know Charles is a familiar voice on our area has been for a while but he is now formally NPR's Moscow correspondent so Charles welcome aboard officially Wow thanks Steve Appreciate it It's announcing the privilege It's good to have your insights and what do you know about this call Well you know The White House announced the call only yesterday saint Putin had requested to speak with Biden the Kremlin spokesman here just confirmed that Putin thought the conversation was necessary and important to have They also confirmed the call take place quite late It's at three 30 in the afternoon in Washington but that's 1130 p.m. here The White House said they expected the two leaders would discuss a range of issues that includes upcoming diplomatic engagements I think that's another way to say they want to talk about efforts to defuse the situation around Ukraine and this build up of Russian forces there that has the U.S. fearing of an invasion and warning Russia of massive sanctions should it take military action Now if you're looking for hints as to how that will go Putin just posted a new year's message to the Kremlin website saying he was convinced that effective dialog with Biden was possible Is it better understood what Russia is aiming at when it puts troops on the border with Ukraine Yeah well fundamentally this is about Russia trying to essentially block a Ukraine's desire to move towards the west to thwart that Russia launched a proxy war in east Ukraine in 2014 This is where Russian backed separatists have this simmering war with the government in Kyiv But this latest Russian buildup seems to be a way for Moscow to force a conversation with the U.S. about something else which is NATO's presence along Russia's borders Putin aired these concerns what he's called his red lines in a video conference call with Biden earlier this month He spelled them out again at this annual press conference he gave last week let's listen in just a bit With this museum that means so here Putin says that any further movement by NATO towards the east is completely unacceptable to Russia and he argues the U.S. wouldn't tolerate it if the Kremlin was placing its military hardware near America's borders Now now the Kremlin says it wants security guarantees from the U.S. and it's spelled out conditions It wants no NATO membership for Ukraine and another former Soviet republic Georgia It says no military presence by NATO or weapon systems along countries bordering Russia and it wants NATO to pull back its military deployments from central Eastern Europe places like Poland and the Baltic states So at the core what Putin wants is to turn the clock back on NATO's expansion after the end of the Cold War and he's using the threat of an invasion of Ukraine to try and get it How does all of this look to the other NATO allies by which I mean Western European powers that are aligned with the United States but a lot nearer Russia Well certainly the eastern Europeans are not happy about this A lot of them look to NATO as a way to guarantee their security from Moscow's influence so of course they want a lot of the number of former communist governments taking over by the Kremlin in after World War II But I think in terms of what the Russian demands are you know is the question here is it a bargaining chip Are they trying to create a maximum stance and see what they can get Or is it an excuse to justify Kremlin military actions when and if diplomacy fails And Paris Charles maines is in Moscow thanks Thank you There is still a backlog of ships waiting off the coast of Los Angeles because of supply chain problems Those vessels in the bay are making the

only a small fraction lead to hospitalization they could still be hard for hospitals to keep up Yeah that's the problem If you have millions of cases over time you could end up with many many thousands who are hospitalized I want to ask about news item from New York now Ithaca New York Cornell University had a quick rise in cases which is going to be of concern to anybody who has somebody that they love on a university campus somewhere What's being done to control the spread Well the university's provost Michael cough told me that they first detected Democrat cases on Sunday They did a bunch of sequencing after noting a steady rising cases starting a few weeks back Now the campus is 98% vaccinated and almost all of the cases have occurred in fully vaccinated students We've been seeing a 50% rise in cases day over day So Cornell moved final exams online They canceled all social gatherings among undergraduates and they've told students they can go home Khalikov says they're now seeing the beginning of a plateau because students are now either isolated or they're leaving the campus Our very many students getting sick You know there have been no hospitalizations but remember this is a young pretty healthy population and Michael klokov says they are keeping tabs on students who've been infected Almost all either asymptomatic or mild symptoms the majority of students have been asymptomatic that have been detected but we're isolating those students for ten days Clearly they don't want students to go home and spread it to more vulnerable family members or friends Does the experience of the UK and recent days point to where we in the United States might be before long You know we're typically about three weeks behind the UK And what happened yesterday in Britain they reported more than 78,000 new cases that's the highest number of infections in a single day since the start of the pandemic the majority of cases in London are now from Omaha and during an afternoon press conference prime minister Boris Johnson announced what he called a jab athon aimed at getting people boosted We're jabbing in hospitals where jabbing in surgeries were jabbing in pharmacies and in pop up centers where jabbing in shopping centers and on high streets in football stadiums we are throwing everything at it And wherever you are will be there with a jab for you You know he's basically saying you're not going to be able to escape the shot Okay so first I'm very much in favor of the word jab athon We should find more ways to use that in the language but is there evidence that the booster shots really do help against this.

"You're listening to Bloomberg daybreak here We track the markets for you We give you an update on where we are Every 15 minutes so let's get to that The stock 600 up by four tenths of a percent the FTSE up four tenths The cac irons on the set acts up by half a percent The ibex in the foots you may both up by just over half a percent as well But really this is catch up from yesterday the U.S. equity markets managed to hold onto earlier gains and were pricing that in here in our European hours this morning U.S. futures the moves there look more muted Evenings and Dow futures look fairly flat NASDAQ futures actually losing a bit of steam losing some ground down by three tenths of 1% this morning MSCI Asia Pacific flats a positive upper tenth of a percent as the Asian equity markets deal with that news around DD that weighs on some of the tech stocks but it doesn't seem to be having too much of an impact on the broader picture for Asian equities Oil price is a little more solid this morning up 3% despite that release from all that going ahead with the planned increase in production at OPEC plus 71 76 is where we trade on Brent The U.S. ten year yield one 45 the dollar trades flat to positive up a tenth of a percent on the dollar index the Euro is flat to negative one 1296 right now and the pound loses around a quarter of 1% one 32 75 on cable So that is a look at where we are on the markets Let's get to some of our top stories And I mentioned that the Asian equity session was dealing with the DD story while the Chinese ride hailer didi global has begun preparations to withdraw from U.S. stock exchanges and will start work on a Hong Kong share sale Bloomberg reported last week that Chinese regulators had asked Dede's top executives to devise a plan to de list in the United States over concerns about data security sources say it aims to file for a Hong Kong listing around March We're also hearing about the U.S. getting tougher on their disclosure rules from Chinese and Hong Kong based companies So there's going to be two different strands to that same story Now in the United States we'll get the jobs report today with economists predicting a 550,000 increase in non farm payrolls Meanwhile more fed officials laid out the case for speeding up the removal of policy support amid higher inflation governor Randy qualls said he would support moving the end of the taper forward If we get to next spring and inflation is still over 4% and we've ended our taper and that's where we are I think the fed I will not be on the committee at that time but I think the fed would have to say seriously this has run too high for too long And we need to start using other tools So job report today could add to the case that for a more hawkish fed move Let's get to the news out of turkey and Fitch ratings has cut the outlook on turkey's sovereign credit rating to negative The credit assessor cited a deterioration in domestic confidence as a result of monetary easing it called premature the outlook change comes a day after president Recep Tay perdo one abruptly replaced his finance minister So those are some of the top stories we are covering this morning Now to our big take story of the morning at long last women are starting to make waves in the hedge fund world 9 recently opened or soon to launch funds started by women signal changes coming But progress remains slow All of the thousands of hedge funds around the world only about 80 are led by women today That is according to the kresge foundation which tracks the diversity of managers for more on this we're joined by Bloomberg hedge fund reporter nishant Kumar who's put together this morning's big take Nisha I'm very good to speak to you So how bad is female representation then in risk-taking roles in the hedge fund industry Well by any measure it's terrible and hedge funds diversity track record has been given poorer But that's about to undergo and extraordinary change But to give you some context more UK mutual funds are run by managers named David than by women In the U.S. the world's biggest investment management industry Only about 11% of the funds are managed by women And it's particularly a problem in the asset management industry because there are 37.5% of lowers are women 49% of judges in U.S. 34.5% of the economists are women 26% of chief executives are women So it's a problem that is concentrated in the investment management industry Okay so even compared to some other industries where you might expect to still and do see a bit of a bias towards mail managers even compared to those sectors the hedge fund industry performs badly but your piece is quite celebratory of some women who are managing to make it So what is changing So one thing that is changing dramatically over the last few years is the demand for diverse and ESG related products is booming So that's contributing to the debate investors are looking at these managers So that's a good thing And that's very important Because one is that the number of women fund managers are less But if you look at S 8 points of view only 1.3% of assets in the investment management industry which manages $70 trillion in the world is led by the men in minority fund managers So when there is more debate around diversity ESG that will eventually lead to more a.m. flowing into these managers The second thing is that data and performance over the long period of time has showed that diverse managers are better You are not losing out in performance In fact their performing even better And broadly there is a gene Richmond change going on in business Women portfolio managers with decades of experience at some of the most sophisticated investment firms in the world are striking out there on their own We have profiled 9 of them and you mentioned 80 that exist today This data might look very tiny because they are obviously hundreds of new husbands start every year But since the turn of the century we have only managed to get 80 And we have profiled 9 of them I think something extraordinary change is going on It's probably a story moment this year Nishan thank you very much for bringing us your story Bit by catch fund reporter nishan Kumar really interesting big take and I big take is the function to use on your Bloomberg if you want to get more details on that story and read the profiles that nishan has put together Let us get a look at the global news headlines.

"Hey, it's the best advice show. I'm Zach, today I'm so excited to get off of zoom and into the real world. Yeah. Yeah. Surely with some shares and art studio with her son. It's right off the highway on the west side of Detroit. But once you step inside, it's peaceful and warm. Her work covers the walls and it's stacked in piles on the floor. That's a collage of recent one. Wow. It's about I did a whole series on my family. Miss Woodson has been in Detroit since 1938 when her parents moved the family from Tennessee. She was just a baby. My great aunt. Today she's one of Detroit's most celebrated and beloved artists. She makes big colorful figurative paintings. And she's kind of obsessed with horses. I do a lot of horses with writers, women, writers, writers. After I leave, she's going to get back to one of her paintings. She's going to work on the front right leg of a burnt orange horse, galloping alongside a short haired woman dressed in white. But each one is a challenge, you know, and because you want to get another. Attitude. Within the work. Her work is part of permanent collections at the Detroit institute of arts and the Charles H Wright museum of African American history. Gretzky arts recently named her their eminent artist of 2021. They wrote about her, quote, decades of success as an artist, paired with her exceptional, and tireless commitment to ensure educational and career opportunities for all artists have ensured the story of art in Detroit is far more inclusive and honest than it would have been without her efforts. It is also insured her place as a revered and renowned pillar of Detroit's creative community. Miss Woodson has offered creative advice to students for decades. And perhaps the most foundational art lesson she teaches is this. Well, there are no wrong answers in your seeking to express an idea. And there's more than one way to get your idea. Across. Three plus three is 6, four plus two is 6. And 12 -6 is 6. And since there are no wrong answers, when we're starting out drawing as kids or adult beginners, miss Woodson teaches us, we don't need erasers on our pencils, and we do not throw our work away. So occasionally, I would hear a crumple crumple crumple of paper. Can I have another sheet of paper? What happened to the last sheet of paper? I messed up. You weren't pleased with that. No. Did you turn it over on the other side? I just want another sheet of paper. Said, well, let's say we're going to use all of it. I said, and remember, you have to keep all your drawings because we want to see the improvement. Can't see the improvement if it's in the wastebasket. Before we go, I'm going to leave you with a lesson. You can try at home today. You need 5 sheets of I was going to say typing. But nobody takes anything more. 5 sheets of paper. And draw a circle, freehand, hold your pencil so that your hand is not touching the paper. So your pencil see your hand is up. And then place the pencil point on the paper and using your shoulder in the motion in the whole motion, draw the circle and it can be big to take up the whole paper and go around. As many times as it takes you to see the circle come out. And remember if your hand is making the motion. And you do that. And then you do four more. And then you can put something inside of each of those circles. And now we're racing is that right? No, oh, do not erase. Sign it and date it. And put it in a little put it in a folder. This may be your beginning. My name is Shirley. Let's syn and I'm an artist. I'm a painter. I do collage work. And mixed media. And some new things on board. Always new things, huh? Yes, always. If you're in Detroit, it's not too late to catch Shirley Woodson's solo show at the Detroit artists market. It's called why do I delight? And it's running until October 23rd. I put a link to it in our show notes. To see some of miss Woodson's paintings, you should follow us at best advice show on Instagram. I posted a bunch of them there. The kresge foundation just put out a beautiful new monograph called a palette for the people, the vibrant world of Shirley Woodson. You can download it or order it at no cost while supplies last, I put a link to that in our show notes as well. What a joy it was to spend some time with miss Shirley Woodson. I hope it was for you.

Hermann says the decision is due to the current status of the pandemic with the delta variant showing quote no mercy on unvaccinated individuals memorial. Hermann says that more than eighty three percent of its workforce is already fully vaccinated that includes eighty seven percent of bedside staff ninety five percent of managers and one hundred percent of their executive team. Houston methodist was the first houston hospital to mandate the shots. Now a new report shows women and people of color in texas are disproportionately impacted from losing pandemic related unemployment benefits as are pulled. Benedetto tells us many people will actually make less money as they go back to work. Governor greg abbott halted pandemic on employment assistance for texans last month. Those were the federal benefits that paid out three hundred dollars a week. A report from january advisors shows that just under two hundred thousand. Texans were receiving those payments and without it they estimate seven thousand will actually lose money by going back to work. January advisers says two thirds of that population are women and eighty six percent of people of color. And that's paul di benedetto reporting there. Now that now that the cdc's moratorium on a fiction has expired more than twenty four hundred renters. In harris county are left vulnerable but as sara will ernst explains that only represents a sliver of people program was supposed to protect. According to the data firm january advisors only thirteen percent of harris county defendants saw the national moratorium delay or prevent eviction from happening. That's because the vast majority of households do not have attorneys representing them. In order to benefit from the ban. Defendant must fill out an affidavit and file it in court there currently is no state or local ordinance banning evictions despite rising cases caused by the delta variant meaning locally some twenty four hundred households who were protected by the policy could see their eviction cases now resume about sarah will ernst reporting there houston mayor sylvester turner issued a statement.

"By the way The percentage of those dollars a study got done recently by a professor batista amazing professor at the new school and she looked at twelve of the biggest ones they gave away about a billion dollars and the percent that went to organizations that are run by serving people of color and working on justice. The work that mia does Was one point three percent. It's a shocking number. And it's a shocking failure for a a group of foundations that are been incubating given money. That's supposed to benefit the public trust and this is not a new problem. Organizations in the the environmental justice organizations and leaders have been talking about this for a while. and what. We've what's exciting about what i'm working on right now with the of color network with me as guidance is effort that challenges foundations to do two things. It challenges them to say. Okay we know this collective number but bad data is a little old. Tell us two things. One what percentage of your dollars big funders are went to climate justice organizations or any kind of justice organization this working on climate and energy in the last two years. Tell us what about number is and tell us within three months because you have a lot of money in the bank you could probably figure it out it quickly if you wanna do right. And secondly within the next twelve to twenty four months within one to two years. Let's get that number up to thirty percent if we do that We will allow biden president biden who with guidance from mia. Another is now Is working to try to advance. Not just by change but justice. Forty adjusts transition that benefits. Everybody we will win if philanthropy doesn't shift We won't and one of the reasons why the oil companies have been able to have as much disruptive influence and spread as much disinformation and block so much climate legislation is because the organization and representing those who are most affected in whose genius we need to help shape policies. Do the organizing Have not been getting anything close to their fair share. The good news is we've got some foundations like the kresge foundation. That said sign me up and if you go to climate Donuts color dot org climate dot. Org you can click on who's pledged you'll be able to see who said yes who said we'll get back to you but they took our call And who hasn't responded to us yet and so again. I'm so grateful. T read forgiving us platform to let people know because the other thing we do on that website is we feature amazing organization the networks around the country that are there that could be funded tomorrow That will make a difference for the change that we need out and me First of all. I'm so glad to here and we're having this conversation. Thank you then you for this transparency You know those numbers as you know are are just astounding. I hear them. I mean these are not small numbers used a. You didn't say million went to the beware went to the billion and so i guess before we get to the solution and you started to go there and we're we're going to. We want to go there. Because i actually for those who listening i really believe on what donors of color is doing I believe that's the solution for what needs to happen for a lot of reasons. We're going to get to that but this is this. This is keep it. Real was second because we have to do with the harm decimal on arm and with danielle saying right. There's some real harm and the passing over the the The old saying of folks being to write a proposal on a napkin and get to that billion dollars and other folks doing thesis am literally not even getting. There's some harm as many of you know. I was very close to sessile of at and i'm still greed. Because i think that i've seen so many like him die move who have died early Because literally being put into impossible situations so so me. I guess i might have to come to you. Because you're here in this position and at the hearing that and also against the frame this way too as a follow up question on the east asia. Summit you know. This year marks the three anniversary of the first national people of color from a to leadership summit and so mir you mentioned you had the opportunity to attend some as a young person so just kinda looking at that. Would you say that. The those principles of the ej drafted at the summit have remained the foundation of of the movement. Is there cerise centering. And after hearing with danielle said have we lost. Has something gone wrong in those thirty plus years that we haven't literally that folks have died with india movement because they will underfunded doing this work. Wow yeah i really appreciate you bringing in tussles name and and damu and dana allston and gene gallon and like so many more of our movement leaders and heroes who really Yeah i mean. There's the the burden of bore bore the burden of so much caring so much of the load of trying to build our movements with so few resources And i am so acknowledging that makes me really you know it makes me sad that has i don't think that much has changed the that devastating number. The danielle gave like there's the has real consequences and it has other consequences. A couple of the biggest. Which are we are not winning. There's a direct relationship between who were funding. What those strategies and what that organizing and building power could do for the movement and what we are what we're robbing ourselves of.

Shomar givens is senior program officer at the kresge foundation and she just wrapped up a nationwide effort to bring climate solutions to fifteen low income communities. She joins me via skype shomar. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us on climate cast today but thank you for having me. I really appreciate it. Correct me if i'm wrong but i think i've seen some polls that show people of color and low income communities is are really strong advocates of climate solutions so i'm wondering what are the best methods that we can use to engage that support absolutely as poll well after poll after poll instead you have to study that shows that communities of color in particular are some of our strongest environmental advocates. I think the challenge is that these communities for a very long time have not been engaged in a way that connects the dots to their lived experiences communities of color low income communities are are disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards cumulative hazard and are often you know the first and worst hit by climate change however there's been a framing of climate that has not necessarily resonated with these communities but when you engage these communities and really connect that to the economic social public the health issues that they're facing every day. It's like a high of course and they become your strongest advocates. There's a project here in the twin cities. He's called our car that would bring shared electric vehicles into low income neighborhoods and i'm curious how your view that kind of green infrastructure structure project in a neighborhood versus more of a policy initiative at a broader level. I think that having electric infrastructure along communities is a good good thing. I do think that <hes> there is a tension right across the country about how we do i. I think it's not what we do. Right is how we do it. I think it's important martin to really get their voice around the best way right that we're deploying this type of electric vehicle infrastructure and we know that in this real estate had an income scenario that we live in these days you know it's hard for a lot of people to find affordable places to live so if we bring it infrastructure into low income home neighborhoods does the issue of gentrification become something we need to consider. There are communities that worry and are actually afraid to bring green.
