You're like all right. I can do this. You know this is just. You're thinking a week you know like you're not really wrapping your head around the fact that wow this could really go on a long time now. In the second week I'm hearing from a lot of people started to really hit them like this could be while we gotta really make adjustments to our day-to-day structure. You Know Yep yeah I mean bottom line is it's just a life changes and Cara was saying before the show that she's off her schedule right. Everybody's off their most people are off their normal schedule. And you gotta you gotta get creative. And you've got to work with everyone you know you gotta you're cooped up with whoever you're cooped up with maybe up. God forbid you're alone you know some people are alone. A lot of Get on Google hangouts in touch with people like that. They are actually starting to try and like I think the. Who and a lot of larger organizations are wanting to start to phase out the phrase social distancing and phase in physical distancing because you need to be social Right yeah because we don't want to encourage people to not have psychological wellbeing like we need to be in touch with people that we love just not physically in touch because it is hard and also I struggle with this like if I don't have to wake up for on the calendar I will sleep. I will just sleep and sleep and sleep on the couch rolling over like A. I'm going to eat. And then Rollover Watch. Tv Rollover and fall asleep. I Know Har- of a alternates. Cara in some alternate universe. If only you knew somebody who works from home. I have the worst kind of like work from home hygiene and Yeah. I know people who are so good at waking up taking a shower putting on shoes like into their clothes and put. That's crazy talk. That's and that's how they maintain a sense of kind of sanity. Shoes on negative measures are no shoes onto underwears completely optional. This point seriously like three days I should probably change from. It show. It's interesting. Those are all day day schedule is actually not different. This is nine Donald quite as many patients and their online. It's all telehealth but I have to be dressed professionally so I have to. I'm dressing the same way I do for work just sitting in front of my computer rather than going does structure my day. Who there's a. There's a joke there with Dr above the Waist Party boy on the. I don't know something like that can. I'm doing therapy online. But no I'm doing therapy over the phone. I'm doing therapy but but it's over the phone so it really doesn't matter what I look like which it's tough. I still go to office because yeah I'm considered essential. Yeah as an accountant. Yeah they carved out a notch for us at least in the state of Connecticut. They did in which we can go in and I do have clients who still want to see me. They're all in one on one appointments and we're doing all the correct things keeping the ceiling wiping down. Definitely the six foot rule and limited contact. There's even elbow bumps at this point you know we've just stops all all touching right. How typical is Yale's stash of tests across lake other hospitals because I have been the most insane horror stories of people going into the hospital with a fever and a cough getting tested for strep and influenza and when they find those negative saying unless you've been exposed to somebody who traveled outside of the country? We cannot afford to give you a task. You my is sick in bed with what I think is Tova. And they're like can't do it. We don't have enough test to go around. A friend of mine from medical. School is on the front lines in New York State. That has the most cases each other's zoo that they're basically just trying to separate the covert cases from the non code cases. And they are. They are overwhelmed. So yeah and there's a critical shortage of PPA the personal protection stuff. So don't definitely don't hort. Don't buy masks. If you're not a healthcare provider we're going to be talking about some specific things you know in the beginning of the news items as well but really don't anything you feel like you need to do to to protect yourself that involves You know hoarding something or getting something. You probably don't need to do it. And you're probably taking away a critical resource from healthcare providers. So you really should only be doing it. Under your doctor's advice is a sort of good rule of thumb. You don't try. Don't try to short-track anything. Feel like you've got like the inside scoop on something and you're going to be doing something to give yourself in edge. You're probably going to be doing something counterproductive if you do that you know. I've been in lockdown now. I think almost three weeks here in la it was only mandated within the last week or two. But I self quarantined early. Just because that's what health officials were saying we should do. I left once for the grocery store and that was it. Been getting my groceries delivered but last Friday. I was actually asked to go into the studios. Kcet which is one of the networks involved in the kind of family of networks here in Southern California and I filmed a bunch of content for their at home learning initiative so between KCET PBS. Oh Cal and The LA USD The Los Angeles Unified School district. They came up with a bunch of great curriculum for all kids like starting in kindergarten. All the way up to twelfth grade and I got to film a bunch of stuff for all of the math and science content so if you're in southern California highly recommended if your kids are home and they need you know. They're not in school yet because school hasn't come back online yet. Show them show them case. The there's a lot of great programming at home learning. I think it's like pbs dot org slash at home learning to learn more about it. I'm not sure if outside of southern California it's available it may be online though so I would still give it a try. Lots of also a good time for the teaching company and this is just kind of but they have lots of content. They are producing some special content. Because you know people are at home and hungry for it and that's good quick quick update on the numbers so as you're recording this. The number of confirmed corona virus cases. Four hundred sixty eight thousand two were approaching half a million number of deaths is twenty one thousand one hundred and eighty five so unfortunately the death rate is going up The the current death rate if you just count completed cases closed cases is sixteen percent. Wow if you look at all cases it's four point five percent so that the death rate that's probably because of Italy because it'll really hit hard and Italy has. I was really. I was interested in why it leaves getting hit so hard and we know that a lot of it is the way cultural edged but but we also know that they have a much older population. And that because it's not so much. Why are they getting hit so hard? It's wise their death rate so high compared to everybody else's her number of cases and yet it seems to be the case that they have a very aging population lack of two. Yeah they don't have enough they don't have enough just like everybody else doesn't have enough. But they were severely short in as far as ratios goes my understanding but I also was reading across the board that they actually have a pretty decent health in frustration last year and it was really good And north heads like we might not even have beds but the fact that they so. It's a combination obviously of factors but it does seem to be the case that like the actual age of the general population skews significantly older and Italy and we know older. People are at highest risk right and so that that does seem to affect the number of people who who die per the number of people who get the disease and also as we know this may be an underrepresentation. It may be an overrepresentation because there is we absolutely. Don't know the real number of people with With Co with
Dr. Michelle Ward Deep Dives on Psychopaths
"Shows got a PhD clinical neuropsychologist Euroscience psychology from USC Earlier she study mres murderers and non murderers to identify the structural differences in the brain separate them into two groups and these types of murderers. There's an impulsive type in predatory type and in the impulsive type. They have reduced function prefrontal cortex which makes sense the part of the brain. The brakes puts the brakes on our stupid behaviors. But tell people what psychopathy is and how how they would identify that Oh. Psychopaths are so much fun. So psychopaths in some ways are more evolved than the rest of us. What well okay. Maybe that was a little liberal with my insofar as they function without the burden of guilt and without the burden of empathy so they can do all the little nasty things they WANNA do all their goal driven behaviors without feeling bad about it. I thought they did have much in the way of feelings at all many of them so some of them do I mean some of them can feel. They certainly feel a lot for themselves. Yes yes and they can fall in love they. They don't love a person like you and I might live somebody but it's they just don't feel bad and in it's actually a biological phenomenon like they literally do not have. Oh sorry they don't have the parts of the brain that are associated with empathy are malfunctioning in these people. So of course. It's really bad because if the goal driven behavior is criminal you get yourself a little serial killer right so it seems to me like the people with psychopathic genetics or biology. A childhood horrible abuse. That's how you get these terrible things right if you get nudged in that direction. So it is thought that psychopathy is inherited but not just like one gene O. Dad's psychopath sons a psychopath. It's not like that. It's it's a cluster a jeans a combination. So you'll see it in a pedigree in a family but not necessarily one generation to the next but when it pops up it's it's different and you know it Wa- and there's different flavors of a to Gary. What was James Fallon's podcast? Irvine professor that was doing studies on psychopathy and he was looking through the controls and his family and himself in the controls all of a sudden. He found psychopath amongst the controls they went. Oh my God. This probably got in wrong pile. He takes off the tape and it's him and so he looked in his family. And he's related to Lizzie borden and has multiple generations of people that killed their family members. Nobody else always family members. Okay but if we're GONNA kill someone who makes most Matt sorry not you? You wouldn't do it but but you're right. That's what some of the most intense emotions is. Is that sort of a typical psychopathic pattern. Now family do they have something to benefit? So when ever you're looking at a murder and you have a a suspect who you think is a psychopath. What was the motive? They don't okay. Some of them can kill for thrills but then they're not killing their family members if they're killing family member it's because they want something money or something typically yeah and so it seems how what percentage of population psychopathic tendencies. Okay you're not going to like this one out of every one hundred of us so one percent one percent and so when he it seems like whenever I see murder television shows or whatever here about core chose it seemed like they attorneys are always taking the position that this is a psychopathic. Because they're like oh he just wanted the insurance money so we offer his wife's like that's not a normal behavior now now and usually those are more layered. That is a very convenient explanation for a jury so everyone goes to because you have to have motivation. Juries do not like to convict unless there's motivation but sometimes there's not when you were talking earlier about impulsive killers. Yes those are the people who usually have bad functioning. The prefrontal CORTEX in a bar. Fight the kill the guy they get in a fight with their girlfriend or their wife and they kill them but if they happen to have an insurance policy forget it. They're going to say it's the insurance and it was a psychopath and it was premeditated but sometimes it's not so the it's always frustrating. The distance between the legal system and the reality right So psychopaths are one of the population. How would you know if you have in your life? We've talked about this before so you you know when they just behave in ways. You can't imagine unless you're a psychopath yourself. And then you're like what he's just like normal. And so GARY WHEN. I asked if he would push his son off the bridge in the trolley experiment as Adema Dr drew show and he was surprised that I was mortified by that. That's prize you. Did it surprise me that that I was mortified? Now okay you were mortified to. I was not surprised. Maybe but I was. But I can't get to where you can get to a HA. That's it sorry. Go ahead not calling him a psychopathic. You know it when you see it. It's different now. We have to say most. Psychopaths are pro social. They're not killers. They're not serial killers it's a small percentage of that one percent. You've already called the more evolves so the pro social psychopath may actually be a significant benefit to the world. That's right a leader and sometimes a benevolent leader. They run banks. They run companies. They just don't have anxiety and they don't have to worry the stuff that other leaders worry about. That's right they can push the button. Yeah do we do. Who Do you think say amongst the president's unless thirty years who have had maybe assocham social psychopathy? Okay I do love him but I think Bill Clinton might have been a psychopath. I'm not alone in that. Thought HE HIS. All of his goals were benevolent but he seemed to be able to function without really looking back and he goes shave. No guilt shame. Now go and how do you know? He wasn't just a severe narcissist or is there a difference nicest can feel guilt and empathy and remorse and those are really important shames. A real top one for them for narcissist well because they're super insecure so shame as resetting. They're allergic to it right. So how do we know about bill? Clinton allergic to shame yeah well. Narcissism is very high factor in psychopathy. But you have to have the hallmarks which are lack of empathy remorse guilt. Those are the ones that you really need in order to reach that criteria of psychopathy and so Clinton didn't feel guilt for the stuff he was. Did you see the the Clinton Affair Series Documentary Pretty Interesting? You've told me to watch for sorry. Well right to watch all the television to be fair. He gives a lot of assignment. You have to killing eve that you must watch for. The life of me cannot understand how this man has time to watch the amount that he he doesn't sleep. He drinks a cup of coffee. I mean Part of it but but no no no I mean look what I go home more often. I watch television. I'm not criticizing whatsoever. I walked I watch as much. Tv as you may be alive. I don't know how you have the time to watch all the all the documentaries and the stuff online and stuff you in the pods you keep up on. I listened to every single podcast at well over one acts and I watch most most things that I'm not watching for pure enjoyment. I will watch at others. Those ready to okay. How much sleep do you people need? I need seven hours. I do I can get away with less but seven is five but I never get tired of you get more than seven no more than Nyein Guitar. Okay but nine eight right. Seven is sort of my number these. So why would you take that well okay? It's not a real study. It's Michelle study but I have this theory that people who sleep longer ended up sleeping not as deeply and and they they actually don't have as much energy throughout the day officiously it's anecdotal make sense. I mean there is definitely oversleeping is called sleep inertia and you can. You can have like still be kind of tired during the day after sleeping too much. Yeah that makes sense but those of us who ran on anxiety all the time you get yourself all hyped familiar with that very nervous right now. Okay so which reminds me the psychopaths really having society. Do they know not in a way that you want them to so one thing that's really important and we can measure this in psychopaths versus non psychopaths. Think about when you get scared before. You're doing something big. Let's say your ZIP lining I don't know if the heights are scary for you or you're going on air. Your heart starts racing. You start sweating. You know the fight or flight. You get this autonomic response psychopaths. Don't get the same autonomic response that we do so if you tell a psychopath look. I'm going to shock you in ten seconds. Here's a screen watch countdown. So they're they're watching the numbers go from ten to one and they know they're gonNA get shocked. You don't see those increases and you have your electrodes on them and their polls Fischer's that's right pulse doesn't increase than they don't sweat more. They don't have the skin response from. They can a dupe a lie detector test Oh easily easily is that why they're not admissible but so I was like okay but does that happen after. They've already been psychopaths. I mean. No one really knows when you start measuring with. Are you psychopath? Are you not so we looked at psychopathy? Nine to eleven year olds and we did it in twins because we wanted to be able to isolate. How much is jeans and how much environment? How did you get the referrals? Well this was at UC. So when I was a graduate student we ran the southern California twin project so we went through. La USD matched birth dates and last names and came up with thousands and thousands of twins and we divided them by dental confrontational. Because identical twins. Share one hundred percent of their genes fraternal share fifty percent. So they're fraternal. Twins are just brothers and sisters born at the same time so if identical twins are more similar on any given behavior indicates strong genetic underpinning. So we did we. Would we learned that psychopathic traits did have high haired ability? But the other thing we discovered is that that phenomenon of not feeling anticipatory. Fear not getting nervous before something bad is going to happen exists when they're nine to eleven years old before they've committed crimes but done. Gary Georgia with their brains now. Well we did electrophysiology. So we did. We measured waves. But we didn't do scanning so it was interesting to me that it's the chicken or egg that this biological phenomenon happens before they have an opportunity to go out killing

"Consulted with Larry sand, former L E USD classroom teacher and president of the nonprofit California teachers empowerment network. So Larry, here's what I don't get a contract is signed. But it seems like all parties concerned kind of know that the money isn't there that doesn't make any sense. Does it? You're right, it, it doesn't make sense. I think that the looking at the big picture here. Alex, Caputo Pearl. UCLA president is looking at Sacramento and going we need help down here, send us money, and frankly with a new tax friendly governor and a tax friendly legislature that he very well may get his wish because as you pointed out the way things are now the district is going to go bankrupt. This has been in the cards for a while. We've all known it and the county made sure that the district now. No it just this week. So then why sign onto this thing? I mean distract could've kept going. The district could have held out because all the all the way along they said, look, we don't have the money for this. We don't have the money for this. And then magically everything was signed after the twenty one hour bargaining session. And now they say we don't have the money for this. I I don't know what is going to Austin his or the school boards heads collectively. But you're right. They signed off on it once. Again, I can only guess is that they are looking to Sacramento for a bail out. But you know, I've used I've used this analogy and tell me tapped in your mind that it's kind of like, it seems to me. Anyway, it's kind of like if you know, you don't have an income. You have no job you have no money in the Bank. But you have this credit card you go out on a shopping spree. You charge up maybe four or five grand. But you know, you don't have the money to pay it back, isn't that fraud? Yeah. Have you have you did that it would be fraud? If his school district does it because it's a government bureaucracy. It's what's called bad management. But yes, it is fraud. And the whole thing is that there was such an easy fix for this the the healthcare benefits for teachers and retirees is out of control if we stopped giving these outlandish perks, just very briefly. I'm a seventy year old seventy one year old man, I go to a doctor I pay five dollars. Five dollars. I get all kinds of tests. That's ridiculous, especially because Medicare would be paying for most of it is David crane who's a state fiscal expert pointed out if we just let Medicare takeover instead of LA USD, providing the healthcare perks, we could solve the whole problem would free up fifteen billion dollars. Could use you at the table. Yeah. Use David Craig, unfortunately, the health benefits committee is made up of union people. And there was a starter. And it'd be more five dollar bills in circulation wouldn't there? Yeah. By the way. I want to point out right here that we had scheduled to tape. An interview with the LA US is superintendent Ostra Butin in Austin. I well, here's what happened. He called in to the KNX newsroom. He was put on hold for about a minute. Wasn't my. Yeah. About a minute. Well, apparently that was too long for him. So he hung up before we could talk with him and said he was unavailable for the rest of the day. So there. Well, I I I won't withhold your speech. So so where do you see this headed? Now, here's one scenario. Let me put this on the table for you that the there is the possibility is there not if the money doesn't come up that down the road and not too far down the road. The what could the county or the state takeover and force cuts and all kinds of draconian things that night in the school district, nor the teachers really would want to have done. That's my understanding that the county could come in and the county can't get it done that mistake come in and say, okay, we're the new sheriff or the new sheriff's and everything that you've been doing is void and we're going to start from scratch, and here's how much money I have. Now. Let's talk about how we're going to spend it. And yeah, I mean, the county has been making noise the county started showing up at board meetings than the state showed up at a board meeting the board meeting, and yeah. So I'm just waiting for that to come down. Now. Computer, perils, not stupid. Maybe he thinks that before they do that. You know, he's gonna get some more tax money out of Sacramento that Gavin Newsom who's certainly friendly toward the unions. Well, somehow step up to the plate and the chances of that. I mean, it is he's a brand new governor. He probably doesn't want a whole lot of trouble right now his first budget. So maybe your chances are good at getting the money right now. I that's a possibility. I I'm not betting a nickel on any of this because it could go so many different ways. But I'm just suggesting that computer Pearl is not stupid, and therefore he probably has an out or thinks he has an out because of the county or the state takeover. He's out of luck. All right.
