"For women, like kickboxing, or cross fit or weightlifting, even just exercising in a public place would have been unthinkable. Not that long ago. Lindsey Lazar ski takes a look at the history of women's fitness picture. This it was the nineteen forties.

The battle of the budget, and he had some of the mechanized units on maneuvers. Women who've. These places were called reducing salons and figure spas where contraptions whittled away women's waistlines for smoothed out those unsightly lumps dimples, their machines. And you see women standing in them in high heels. That's an Italian Melman Petrella.

Working on a new book about exercise culture in America. She says, at the time exercise was inextricably tied to beauty fitness was about how you look not about what you could do. They were predicated on the idea that what you wanted to do was, yes. Work on your body. So that's something we still have with us today. But the ads all said things like relaxing, luxurious comfort. No sweating whatsoever. And the idea was through technology that women could still be ladies and I'll be like grunting and sweating..

"And she saw this allergy note, pop up on patients charts often then her son was diagnosed with a penicillin allergy. He had just like an ear, infection and was on amoxicillin so, like, well, analogy four I had a rash because I was taken pin as Silliman just a red bumpy rash all over his body. And as in most cases that's enough for the person to be told. Okay, you're allergic to penicillin, and that went right on his chart, too. But it turns out that neither of us is allergic defendant, Zilin. How did you find that out? So, I think as a so often, the case in parenthood, I was more invested in my son's long-term well-being than I was in my own. And I thought you know, I really don't want him to have this label on his chart. I don't want this world of potentially ex. Solent medications to not be available to him for the rest of his life. And so I took him to see an allergist shall I'll want to dump a nice woman and see tone me, like was going to happen. And he went through a pretty simple skin testing procedure. They gave him one pill of amoxicillin afterwards when he passed the skin test, and he didn't have a reaction. So that label was totally taken off of his chart. He is not allergic to penicillin Neta, went through the same skin test and got the same result. And as she dug into more research she found out this is really common. We've actually learned in medicine that ninety five percent of people who have a reported, penicillin allergy or not, allergic to penicillin. She said that reaction she had as a teenager that itchy rash could have been from anything also people sometimes outgrow, these allergies. So what should physicians? And I'm thinking it's probably most likely primary care physicians who should know about this. What should physicians do differently? I think one of the most important things is that when we see that penicillin allergy on a patient's chart to ask more questions about it. We often treat that allergy tab as, as if it's written in stone. Whereas other parts of the chart were constantly updating and things are coming off and being added on, we should view that allergy tab with that same fluidity. So ask more questions. What actually happened? How old were you in some cases? The reaction really is severe. They might have had their skin Slough off of their body, that's serious. And that warrants more of like a closer investigation, but if it was that they had hives when they were thirteen like me, then we could actually really think about sending them for testing and maybe taking that off of their chart and not having or being able in. Quotes to take those medications can have some pretty serious drawbacks. Right. Absolutely. There have actually been a number of studies that have shown that people with a reported penicillin allergy have a higher risk of really serious complications, like, for example, Mersa, that resistant, staff, infection, also C, diff or clustered him difficile colitis, which can make a person, incredibly sick people with penicillin allergy have a higher risk of those kinds of infections. And so it's not a harmless thing to just kind of linger in your history for years and years. And what's the reason for those bigger infections? Is that because they were treated with stronger antibiotics along the way? And that's exactly right. Yes.

"Now as Lindsay pointed out earlier, it really then might matter whether we have a democratic or Republican governor at the time, a governor could. Veto the map, send it back to the legislature to have it redrawn, but but it looks like it looks like there's going to be no legislative change in how the districts are redrawn by going to an independent commission running out of time here. But there's one more question when ask you in particular Terry. So we do have these new congressional maps for this this race. Are you seeing just even if it's just for this year, sort of politics being changed in terms of who's running and the kinds of racist were seeing in Pennsylvania's? Well, first of all, we have a record number of of women running. Twenty-three women ninety four people actually filed for the eighteen congressional districts twenty three of them. Women ran eight survived the primaries. Seven of them Democrats were likely to have. It looks like conceivably put it that way for women could go into a delegation. That doesn't have a single woman. We haven't had one since two thousand and four. Eighteen when congresswoman Allyson Schwartz ran for governor. The bottom line here is that we're going to see a big change in the Pennsylvania delegation. The Democrats could pick up between five and eight seats, Pennsylvania will we'd be one of the three or four states that determine whether the Democrats get twenty three seats and take control of the of the federal house. So that might happen this year, but we still have that persistent question about whether you know, fair districts can be a permanent part of Pennsylvania politics. So we're gonna come back to this probably next year Lisi Lazar ski, multimedia journalist for WHYY and keystone crossroads immediate nonprofit focused on the state's political challenges.

"And then another one Reynolds versus SIMS, political gerrymandering itself was not considered a constitutional question. It was considered a legal. It was it was considered a political question. You got it political gerrymandering, his political in and of itself that's not illegal, and that all be. And for the most part, what the supreme court has done over the years, it's changed now was just a look. If the population equality was consistent and I mean they got down to a decimal of of of a percent. You know if you were. If you did drew the boundary lines in you were over the population or under the population. You got yourself in legal trouble. Well, you know what? I want to get a couple more calls before we run out of too much time here Dane is calling from Greenville, North Carolina Dane. You're on the air. Thank you for taking my call. Appreciate it. I'm not from Pennsylvania obviously. But if you wanna look up gerrymandering North Carolina's specifically where I am in Greenville would be a perfect example. How are general assembly lines, which includes the state house and Senate along with our federal lines are all cut along the same. You know areas, but also go along compared to the people the town and gown with East Carolina university and how wrong how I it seems evil how their their their districted just in our small town that has less than one hundred thousand people. Well, Dane. Thank you for your call. Let's go to Nate. Who's calling from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nate, you're on the air. I thank you very much for having me, Wisconsin actually has had its own court case and in the lower federal courts, they did rule that the gerrymandering which I call rigging of elections because it really is rigging of elections, undermine citizen's rights by making their votes, meaningless. And we, I've seen it going all the way to the supreme court. The supreme court did not rule the lower court with wrong. The basically said the people who are complaining, didn't show that they lived in gerrymander districts and kicked it back. We actually do have a successful federal court is I know they've been struggling for a long time to restore democracy basically in places like Texas and Clorinda, but really is the rigging of elections. Nate, thank you so much for your call Lucy Lazar ski. I think of one an issue that Nate brought up that was of waited here in Pennsylvania's, that with the court case, the state supreme court case it was brought here. There was. A plane from every one of the eighteenth congressional district. So proving that that there was impact or standing across the state? Yes. And they had to prove that they were harmed. Okay. So here's the question. We have a temporary fix and put fixing quotes because again was we've been hearing throughout the there folks who, particularly in the state GOP who don't have a problem with the current system, but where do we go from here? I mean, if if after twenty twenty and the next census it could all revert back. Is this just sort of a flash in the pan for election, fair elections in or I should say fair districts in in the state of Pennsylvania. I think that during this midterm election, we're seeing, you know, a dramatic overhaul of Pennsylvania's districts. But like you say, that might not last, and I think that that's one of the issues when you do a court challenge is that it's this is going to be temporary, and there's really no transparency which. To some people is a problem that we don't know why the Pennsylvania supreme court made the decisions that they did. Their expert is under gag order. There's really no transparency with the district. So I think that you know the the Pennsylvania league of women voters and the public interest Law Center and these twin in these eighteen voters who challenged the map, you know, they will have what they think is more of a fair election this time around. But in the future we still have the same rules. The bottom line is simple. If the composition of the legislature doesn't change, I'll put it another way. If the Republicans continue to control the legislature in two thousand and twenty one, they're likely to draw a map that reverses much of what the Pennsylvania supreme court did in the in the current map..

"If each date you know that govern game exactly and the actual process itself. So the two thousand and ten election was used not just in terms of the bringing the tea party to power, the ideological conservatism, that it represents go headlines. Yeah, just to piggyback on that. Just one thing that I think we saw with Pennsylvania's, you know, you know, one of the most agree GIS gerrymandered maps in the country. We see one party control, right? We see that the Republicans controlled the house, the Senate, the governor's office, and you know, they made the laws. They made the rules and there was no really check combined. Democrats would do. That's being nonpartisan ab- now you're not being partisan, but the Democrats have done that. So already pointed out, there's a district in Maryland. Yeah. So this is not partisan both parties. We'll do this. Well, that's exactly the point I wanted to go to because if regardless of party, if the party has the power, it seems very natural. In terms of American politics try to consolidate that power, but but you know, when Republicans do it and there have they have done here in Pennsylvania. Democrats have done it elsewhere. People keep talking to me about Maryland, California, back in the eighties and nineties. But the point is, is that is there a way to come up with a fair system that does mostly remove politics from the equation? And and here let me just let me just do some limit. Let me play for you a little bit of tape here. This is again Valentino degeorge. Oh, he's the GOP chairman of Pennsylvania, and he basically just takes. He takes issue with that entire question because he says it's perfectly fine. With legislators, creating districts, and he really opposes the idea of any other systems, specifically, an independent citizens commission, which we'll talk about here in a second. He poses other systems to draw future congressional maps, and here's what he said. So legislators are in the best position to draw lines and look the end of the day, heaven forbid, politics should enter into a piece of legislation that draws part, you know, political maps stunned over the country. Democrats join maps to their favors in other states, look Marilyn. So you know, this is nonsense. This was part of a Barack Obama, Eric Holder, fair districting plan. They called it to take back congressional seats and they've done it here in Pennsylvania. That's fell to Georgia, Pennsylvania GOP chair. So Lindsey, Lazar ski. He's he basically says, we know the state the best we should draw the maps. But there is this other idea about an independence, it isn't commission. What would that look like in Pennsylvania? I just have to say, I love that operatic music behind veils. And it was. It was a Columbus Day festival in Philadelphia. Taking me there to south Philly. So you know a group in Pennsylvania, fair district's PA for a number of years now they've been trying to. Change the Pennsylvania constitution and to implement an independent citizens commission that would actually draw the lines and they've modeled this after California, and this is really a grassroots organization. You see them at street fairs. You see them at avent's canvassing and you know they, they're asking the legislators to basically vote against their interests to form this commission. As you pointed out it, there is a such a commission in California made up of appointed independent citizens. And I think some several other couple other states in the west have similar similar commission. So do they work though? Have they created fairer districts if you talk to the people on the commission? Yes. If you talked to voters. Yes. I think a key difference between Pennsylvania and California is that in Pennsylvania, there's no referendum. So basically to get that process in place, the state legislature would have to. Pass a constitutional amendment, and then it would go to the voters in a referendum, and there's no guarantee. There's no guarantee that an independent commission itself would be truly independent. By somebody that that that's or hold positions by virtue get on get on the commission by virtue of a position they already hold or you could have state lawmaker leaders appoint a few. You could have different groups. Yeah, it it can get. It can get complicated, but here's what's fascinating until Baker versus car supreme court decision..

"This is on point Meghna Chalker birdie. We're broadcasting today from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia, and we're here in Pennsylvania because we wanted to take a close look at the states adventures in redistricting and gerrymandering and what effect it's having on Pennsylvania politics and national politics as well. I'm joined today by Lindsey, Lazar ski. She's a multimedia journals for h. y. y. who's been covering this issue for quite a long time and by Terry Madonna, he's professor of public affairs and director of the center for politics and public affairs at Franklin and Marshall college, and our callers have been so patient here. So let me let me do them some Justice and get them on the line. Here, Jason is calling from fawn grove, Pennsylvania, Jason, you're on the air. Taking my call. I, I'm from eleventh district in Pennsylvania. Just king is running, and I also helped. I also did some volunteer work for George Scott in the tenth district, and I was happy to see that these two districts are now dependent is especially the the district, but. I'd really like to see Pennsylvania move further in this direction, making more fair. And I really wonder, why shouldn't this be more of a mathematical. My procedure rather than a political procedure, you know, starting to starting to top left of the state and sort of mathematically work your way through the population and the counties and g boundaries. And it's a good question Jason. I mean, Lindsey, Lazar ski, even falling this issue for a long time. What do you think? Yeah, I think you've got a great point there and under the Pennsylvania supreme court ruling, you know, they, they kind of borrowed from the state legislature, the state legislative district rules that you know congressional districts need to be compact. They need to be contiguous. They need to split as few counties municipalities as possible, and that partisan consideration cannot supersede those neutral criteria. So I think that you know going forward the ruling does say that there are these neutral criteria that need to be considered before partisan concern. But you know, the quick didn't go so far and say that here's where you. You can, you know, draw the line as far as when drawing districts becomes too partisan. So there's it's vague, but there there are some guidelines that that the legislature can use going forward, but Terry, Madonna to to the point that the caller was making about, you know, are there al-gharib amac ways to get fairness out of out of district maps or politics always going to be a part of this process? I don't think you can. I don't think you can remove politics. Democrats and Republicans will both try to advance themselves actually because of the algorithms and these and these models that they now have. They can be more skillful at it. They're actually can be better at gerrymandering because of the nature of they. They can literally get down to the precinct level you what I just said, not the district or the word level the precinct level and divide and divide up the electorate in a way that benefits one party or the other to set the rules for the algorithm is what I was thinking. We. Computers can do it better. Let's take another call here. Jim is calling from Akron, Ohio, Jim, you're on the air. Thank you for taking my call. I live in northern some account. That's the Akron, Ohio area. And we, of course, have a Republican governor and a Republican congress, and they three years ago they came over and took no the northern some county, which was a democratic area, and we now have a Republican, congressman re Rene see, and it was all gerrymander. That's how they got us and we lost our our democratic congressman. May I may go ahead. Tell you wanna make a point about this elections have consequences, and what happened in two thousand and ten in the tea party election was not just that the. Republicans picked up sixty three house seats or put it another way. The Democrats lost sixty three house seats, but that they took over state legislatures. I think the number now and I may be off is thirty six state legislatures in which the Republicans control the state legislatures. Both houses and you can see what that means in states. Not every state does has it done by law, but when you get all these Republican governors and Republican state lawmakers in state after state after state, that has a huge difference on writing the laws..

"So to campaign events to political parties, the very same day just fifteen miles apart showing that even in one of Pennsylvania's most politically balanced districts neighbors in the Lehigh valley may still be living across an unbridgeable, divide. Those are some voices that we heard just this weekend in Pennsylvania's brand new seventh district, and this is a district that is very, very evenly divided now between Republicans and Democrats. So Terry, Madonna, tell me, I mean, what is the problem that redistricting is supposed to solve? If we still have these deep political divides even amongst neighbors living across the street from each other? Well, the problem is that we are in hyper partisan hyper polarization the likes of which we've probably have not seen in anyone's lifetime. If not earlier. The fact of the matter is that part of the polarization does come from gerrymandering over the course of time. The Democrats are now becoming an have become the party of urban America with a very different constituency base than than Republicans. The Republican party is the party of small town and rural America, so think and. A battle over the fight over the suburbs. So think about the nature of the constituencies in small town and rural America versus urban America. The demographics of the people, the issues that concern them take just cultural issues, rural and small town America, culturally conservative, right? Go to urban America. What do you find culturally very liberal and those differences do get played out and so urban America sends Liberal Democrats. What is small town in rural America said conservative Republicans. So you're onto something, but it's deeper than that, but you're onto something. So Lindsey, Lazar ski the lemme ask you. I mean, I think Pennsylvania's new. Seventh district is so fascinating because you know everything, Terry, Madonna said is true, but I'm just wondering the, is it a pie in the sky idea to think that if you have a very politically balanced district, that by default candidates would. To run closer to the centre or or not, I mean, is this, is that what we're seeing? Possibly. I mean, I think that this election, these midterms were kind of on uncharted territory here, and we'll see what happens with the the new map in the redistricting. I think that you know. Throwing out the old map is not going to change the divide in America, but the elections will be fair. The elections will be that's the idea that the elections that voters will have a fair shot at choosing the candidate that that that the majority wants to choose. Every vote will have to be earned right. If we go back to a district special election held her or in a year that was nationally observed in Pennsylvania in the eighteenth congressional district, Connor lamb a democrat running in a district one, but one by Donald Trump by twenty points. You know what he said, oh, I'm not going to vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker when then candidate than when candidate and then President Trump, what did he talk about? He talked about iron and coal and steel. We talked about getting rid of NAFTA and getting rid of Trans-Pacific Partnership. You know, who put his hand and agreed with him a guy named CONNER lamb. So there are districts in which it certainly has affected, but Lindsay's, right in and of itself. I don't think it's going to change the polarization that is deeply rooted in the ideological predilections of these of the candidates..

"This is on point and Meghna trucker. Bardy. We're broadcasting today from the studios of WHYY in Pennsylvania because we're talking about gerrymandering and Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and really what effort or what impact that's had on Pennsylvania politics on representation here in the keystone state and what impact it could have as the discussion about gerrymandering and redistricting is taken to the national level.

We're also joined by Terry Madonna, he's a professor of public affairs and the director of the center for politics and public affairs at Franklin and Marshall college as well. Now, Lindsay and Terry, I just wanna play a little bit of tape for you because we were talking about at the very beginning of the conversation how Pennsylvania's gerrymandered districts were struck down in January of this year by the state supreme court. And this weekend we actually caught up with Valentino degeorge oh, he's the chairman of the Republican party for the state of Pennsylvania and he's previously called in. I've seen this in your reporting. Lindsay heath call. He called the January twenty eighteen ruling a hyper partisan decision by an activist judicial bench, and he followed that up with us this weekend. And here's what he said. There's nothing in the Pennsylvania constitution, which says the maps have to be fair, whatever fair means to these judges took upon themselves to say, fairness means, you know what we think it means and they drew in the process. What was what one analyst called the Democrats dream map. So it was. It was just that a. It was just take an unconstitutional taking a power by the supreme court. This Valentino degeorge. Oh, the chairman of the Pennsylvania GOP. No, Lindsey, Lazar ski. Let me just get some impressions here from you because first of all, when did Georgia talks about this new map that the state supreme court drew? They didn't necessarily want to have to do that. They want. They sent it back to the legislature to draw a new map, but that didn't work out. Yes. So the time line here was it was pretty much a crunch so around January. Well, on January twenty. Second, the decision came down that the two thousand eleven map deprived Pennsylvania voters of the right to free and equal elections and basically gave Republicans and unfair advantage and deluded. The Democrats votes, and basically they gave about a month in between that time to come up with a new map, so they kicked it back to the legislatures said, okay, guys, you know, give us your best shot that didn't happen. And we saw these. These contingencies of different groups handing in maps and just to those Republican controlled legislature, but Pennsylvania has democratic governor. Now they were supposed to agree on a new map, the couldn't, yes. The governor was supposed to approve the math that the legislature came up with. It didn't happen. Didn't happen the first of all the legislature didn't do it. The legislative leaders did it. It was never passed by the general assembly in the form of a law which is what is required and the supreme court. In all fairness to both sides is supreme court, did not give the legislature. I think adequate time they come up with a map even if the legislature could have come up with a map when when and they went back to this clause in the constitution known as free and equal, which had never been applied in that way before I'm not suggesting what the court did was wrong, a merely suggesting that they went back into the eighteenth century for the original. The constitution defined it there. You both about that because you know we've course had other cases that have worked their way through the federal system to the United States Supreme court, but Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvanians who brought this case deliberately chose not to do that because they saw the Pennsylvania state constitution has having stronger voter protections that even the US constitution, but but tears indicating here that, but this was a novel read Olympic constitution. Well, I think you also have to look at the makeup of the Pennsylvania supreme court. There are five Democrats on the court and to Republicans on the court. So we also see this change in the makeup of the Pennsylvania supreme court..
