"The inspiration for Holly golightly, the heroine of Truman Capote's breakfast at Tiffany's. She collected many famous friends through her wit and magnetic charm. Then she harnessed her power as a socialite to raise funds to fight the aids epidemic in the 1980s. Meet marguerite lippmann. Marguerite was born marguerite lambkin on May 4th, 1930 in Monroe, Louisiana. Her father was a prominent lawyer and her mother was a homemaker. Family was wealthy and well established and lived on what had been one of the largest plantations in the area. Marguerite was a theatrical child, and she and her elder brother speed staged plays every Saturday. With marguerite as the leading lady. These amateur productions led to adult aspirations in Hollywood. Speed became a playwright and novelist and got a contract to write a film under producer Jerry wald. He moved to Los Angeles and marguerite tagged along. When Jerry wald met marguerite, he thought she was the spitting image of a young Susan Hayward. He wanted to make her into the next big starlet. But first, he had to get rid of her southern drawl. Marguerite trained with vocal coach luster Luther. But even after trying unusual methods, like speaking with stones in her mouth, she still couldn't drop her accent. Marguerite explained if you were to say, how are you to me? I'd have to get my mouth in a certain position and do preliminary things. I mean, you'd be long gone before I said, I'm very well. Thank you. Marguerite gave up on trying to get in front of the cameras. But if she couldn't squash her country twang, she could at least teach movie stars to sound like her. She worked as a vocal coach on over a dozen films, most famously helping Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman speak like southerners in the 1958 film cat on a hot tin roof. I don't want to hear about it. Why won't you face the truth just once about skipper about me about yourself? While she lived and worked in Los Angeles, marguerite became quite the social butterfly, meeting and keeping countless Hollywood connections. Her circle included the painter David Hockney, writer Gore Vidal, playwright, Tennessee Williams, and of course Truman Capote. Marguerite bonded with the queer community in a time when not everyone was so welcoming. The poet Stephen spender described her as an ally against the gossiping classes of Hollywood. Marguerite also attracted many passionate suitors during her California years. One hit in her bushes and left her expensive cooking pots as gifts in her hallway. Another, composed of 50 page love letter, complete with a marriage proposal. Marguerite later said she didn't read past the second page. Marguerite did find love briefly with screenwriter Harry Brown. They got married in 1952, but Harry, who was a rumored alcoholic, became abusive. Marguerite later recalled, I told Harry I was going out to buy some lamb chops and never went back. After her divorce with Harry, marguerite married again in 1959. This time to actor Rory. That union also ended in divorce. By now she was living in New York City and working at glamour magazine. In her dear daisy column, she answered letters from women desperate for romance advice. Marguerite provided what she called teddy bear tricks to help girls catch and keep a man's interest. Often by irritating them. In one column she advised, don't put his flowers in a vase, leave them in the sink. In 1963, marguerite met Mark litman, a British lawyer, while he was visiting Manhattan. She later recalled, I couldn't use any teddy bear tricks because he knew I was daisy. But something worked. The couple got married in 1965 and settled in London. In her new country, marguerite maintained her sociable nature, hosting eccentric luncheons and dinner parties for her many friends. Andy Warhol described one such affair at the London townhouse in his diaries, saying marguerite invented something great for dessert, chocolate soup. Its orange juice and Grand Marnier and chocolate hot. In the mid to late 1980s, marguerite harnessed her power as a socialite to raise funds to fight the out of control aids epidemic. She was friends with actor Rock Hudson and helped nurse him as he was dying of aids in 1985. In 1986, she wrote to 300 friends to ask each of them to contribute a hundred pounds to become founding members of the aids charitable trust. In marguerite's words, no one said no. From there, she led larger fundraising campaigns wrangling artist friends to donate their work for auction. She also enlisted the help of Princess Diana, who donated her enviable wardrobe to the cause. That act alone raised over $3 million. Marguerite later spoke of her conversation with Princess Diana. She said, I have a wonderful idea. I'm going to give you all of my dresses. Marguerite added, I didn't quite know what that meant. I thought, oh God, do I address that badly? After 11 years of raising funds, marguerite decided to dissolve the aids charitable trust and combine efforts with other existing groups. She eventually became a director of the board at the Elton John aids foundation. Marguerite died on October 16th, 2020 in her home in London. She was 90 years old.

"21 minutes after the hour America continue my conversation with the legendary Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully. And sky, how hard is it to get that first gig in broadcast? Well, again, fake play the hand. There was a lovely girl on the campus who was a friend of mine, not a girlfriend, but a friend named McGee, marguerite Clark, and marguerite said, I will type up letters and we'll send them out to radio stations, and I said, okay, let's start from Maine to Florida. And so we had a big book called a broadcast magazine, and it listed all of the stations that you addressed the East Asian managers name, et cetera, and she began typing up the letters, and we came to Washington, D.C., WTO, a.m. and FM, which is a 50,000 watt station. That's the major league. It doesn't get any bigger and brighter than that. So I said to McGee as we called her, McGee, we better skip that. That's too big a station. And to date the story, she said, look, it's only going to cost another three cents stamp. So we put a three cent stamp on this 50,000 watt station letter, mailed it off, and I received a lot of answers from other stations basically saying no job or listen pal. This is a big station and you're coming off a college campus station, which it was not. It was an FM station. But anyway, WTO P said please send an audition disk. So I sent a disk down containing the various bits and pieces of on air broadcast and the next thing I know I received a phone call and the phone call said we would be interested in meeting you, we don't hire anyone site unseen. So I went down to Washington or auditioned again live and got the job. That is

"It is true that Republicans behave differently when a camera is not in front of them. And I just know interacting with a number of them, they know that it's insane, what part of their base believes in extreme marguerite Republicans have just crazy theories about, for example, the election being stolen, which it was not. Donald Trump lost by over 7 million votes. And he lost the Electoral College by multiple swing states and is sure to say, you know, Italian satellites where reversing votes is crazy and some of them believe that, but there are members of Congress, they don't believe that. Except when they have a camera in front of them, then they'll say things to feed their base, but they know themselves for a while, that they're saying crazy things. If you don't mind me asking, how do you know that they know that full well? Oh, so I've talked to some of them. And I've heard what they say about some of their crazy colleagues, like, more juicy green and Madison Cawthorn and others. So I know that they know that their colleagues are crazy and they know that what those colleagues say are crazy. So it's very clear to me that they understand that. And yet they're either silent or in a camera is put in front of them, they won't contradict what those people say. You could take the 5th, it's okay, but is it okay to disclose some of these members who know? Oh, I'm not going to. Look, most people understand that war on democracy based on facts. And a lot of these facts are so easily contradicted, right? So we know that Italian satellites did not flip votes. We know that Hugo Chavez then arrives from the dead and somehow flip votes. We know that Donald Trump lost the election. I mean, the attorney general of the United States testified under oath to January 6th committee that the election conspiracy claims were quote bullshit. And lastly, I'm getting to your tweets because it's really important stuff, but I'm just curious for you, Ted, because you're a smart guy, and you know, how do you, when you see people in Dallas, waiting for the next coming of JFK junior to be Donald Trump's running mate. Are you just are you like, what? What's going on in this country?.

"Optometry students, and even those just interested in this profession. We'll cover a number of topics together and I'll help you see them through a professor's eyes. Please take your seats, schools and Sessions. Thanks for joining again, everybody. And I am more than delighted. At gratified by having a repeat guest, doctor marguerite McDonald on the podcast, thank you for joining me again, marguerite. My pleasure, Chris. I really want to have the chance to learn about your esteemed career. You are arguably the most famous ophthalmologist that I've certainly ever met myself, but arguably could be ever. And, you know, how does one get to where you are and have done the amazing things you've done, you know, none of the things come easy and like always tends to throw us obstacles and curveballs and yet some of the things that you have been able to do are truly amazing. So if you don't mind, can we just start at the beginning and how did you decide on your career path and how did you get started? Well, I decided to be an eye doctor because of my own personal issues. My parents didn't realize how extremely myopic I was. And one day when I fell into a Lake, I didn't see. They realized that I'd better be rushed to the eye doctors, so they took me to the optometrist nearby who said, oh, she's a heimo and she's going to be blind when she's an adult. So I was already -9 at age 5 and so I got my first pair of glasses and I remember releasing my mother's face for the first time and looking at the leaves. They were all up at the top of a tree. I didn't know that leaves belonged up there. I would find them on the ground and hold them up against my nose and look at them. And it was a revelation. And I tied those glasses on for 6 weeks. I wouldn't take them off. My mother had to bathe me around those glasses..

"There'll be some drops that last longer than others. There will be some sting less than others. There will be some that have a slightly different profile in regard to dimming or headache. So it'll all sort of self out. But the good news is, just like there isn't one IOL, and there isn't one glaucoma drop, there's plenty of space in this arena, and it's the biggest arena of all. No doubt. Well, then you reminded me of the last thing I really wanted to ask you about this topic. And that is given all of your experience working with the FDA, the FDA approved this product early earlier than Allergan anticipated. Is that surprising? Or is that just something that occasionally happens? I've never heard it happen before in my life. And I was especially surprised because the FDA was so completely involved in all things COVID. I thought, approval would be late, not early. So that really was a shocker. Yeah, me too. Oh, I lied. I do have one more thing. Talking about things that really surprised me. And I think surprised you as well that Allergan reported after surveying some of the clinical trial participants on the treatment arm. So on the view what product, when asked, would you ask for this prescription when it becomes available, the staggering percentage that said yes. Did that surprise you? As I recall, it was 90%. That was that was a shocker because these exit interviews from clinical trials are usually, I'm glad that Charles hover, you know, don't want anything else to do with this medicine. 90% knowing that it would be something they would have to buy. Said, said they would buy it. That's remarkable, really. 100%. Well, I do appreciate our discussion on view it. As I said, I started starting off. Just I appreciate being at this point in my career where something I never predicted was going to happen has not only happened, but it's in my hands that I can hopefully change some lives of patients in a way that I couldn't do just a few months ago. I thank you again for joining us, marguerite and our best you in the future. And for all of us, good luck with you. Thanks, Chris. Same to you. Classes ended for today, and we have no exams or grades approaching.

"Involves using things in an off label fashion anyway. Absolutely. So when it comes to selecting patients, you know, what patients might be of concern to you to maybe do a different type of investigation in your clinical encounter or maybe just would not be optimally suited for this. You know, obviously pilocarpine was used in the patients for many years. It suited for narrow angle patients, there is a really remote risk of retinal detachment. And so for that, me personally, I just make sure they have a clean, funduscopic evaluation prior to prescribing the medication. But what types of things across your mind? So the clinical trial included people up to minus four, but I do worry about the high myops. I think they need a depressed exam by anybody who is comfortable with a depressed exam and OD and MD, a retina specialist, but if they get a good depressed exam to make sure they don't have lattice, and hopefully they both eyes have had a posterior vitreous detachment. That lowers the score. Or I should say lowers the chance of an RD, but as a retina specialist in our practice told me, even if you have both eyes, even if you have no lattice, if you're a high myop, the chance for retinal detachment is low, but it is not zero. Got it. Yep. That makes but that makes perfect sense. Yeah. So what's next? You know, this is the first foray. It's the only product that we have in our hands for this condition. I think it's going to get gained tremendous excitement, even beyond what it's already had once these TV commercials start hitting the press and as you said, patients really start calling us and coming in, asking for it because it is so new. What do you predict the future is going to hold in the upcoming months? You just think there's going to be a mass excitement. You think people are going to test the waters and maybe spread board of mouth, you know, what do you think is going to happen in our offices? I think there will be mass excitement. And I think pretty much everybody agrees in every conference I've been involved with any ad board. Everybody agrees that you have to do a dilated exam within the last 12 months before you write the script. We're hoping that nobody just does telemedicine and meet somebody for the first time and give us a script. But I think that's poor medicine pretty much everybody is in agreement on that one. I've heard some people say, oh, they have to have a dilated fundus exam within the last 6 months, but most people are just saying a year, a year is good enough. Absolutely. But I do think there will be other medicines that get approved. There are other things in the pipeline. The newest competitor or I should say the next competitor is 18 to 24 months away, but it's coming. And I think the market is so huge. It's bigger than glaucoma it's bigger than dry eye. Everybody lives long enough gets presbyopic. I think it will segregate out..

"Using the beauty drop concurrently with my glasses, just made me see a little clearer than I was even with my glasses alone. And with the contact lens, I did not have any trouble with this vision. So that's only with the brand of progressive lens I was wearing in the brand of contact lens that I was wearing, but it definitely gave me some hope that there's going to be much less pushback in the ophthalmic community or confusion when the doctors say, well, I understand that this product exists, but how might that interfere with my glasses prescriptions by contact lens prescriptions and my early reaction is it shouldn't interfere at all. Oh, that's great. That's wonderful. This just gives the doctor and the patient another choice. It's not replacing an option. It just gives them and then in turn the patient more life choices to be able to satisfy and improve their quality of life and vision. Yeah. That's very reassuring. And it's a safety issue too. That's great. So as this is still weeks new months new, have you heard any typical questions being asked of either potential patients who this might be suited for? Or even providers who really aren't fully aware of all of the information regarding its use. I think early on, people said, oh, it's just pylos, some of the doctors and they've all been brought up to speed on that, that it's fundamentally different. A lot of patients ask if it's covered by insurance, it's not. And I don't think it ever will be like a naked kind of a luxury item. And as a matter of fact, I hope it never is because we all spend so much time trying to get prior offs for drugs that the patients need or they will go blind. I would rather, you know, fight for better coverage for drops that's really safe vision and let these continue to be considered a luxury item..

"Their technology brings it within 15 seconds almost and by 30 seconds all the way to normal PH of human cheers. So it's comfortable to more bioavailable. And the reflux Turing doesn't wash it all away. I think it was a brilliant re-engineering job. Like you, I mean, you know, I am old enough to have prescribed pilocarpine for glaucoma patients. The percentages that I most and I recall using was most commonly 2% and 4%, but it certainly didn't occur to me that somebody was going to be able to do this. And I remember the first thing I thought of when I heard of it was, well, what if I just go to my compounding pharmacy or a pharmacy who can just make it in a very low concentration to match beauty, but what you just mentioned is the reason why that won't work, right? Yeah, it truly is the secret sauce. It's a light and day difference 1.25% pilot and beauty versus 1% generic pilot. Yeah, absolutely. So one of the things that you and I have talked about previously, which was the really aggressive study design that Allergan did in their pivotal trials to bring this drug to market. They did some things that arguably they didn't have to do one of which was really test the effectiveness of this drug on vision in really dim to dark light settings. Yes, so the FDA since this is the first drug going through the process of approval for presbyopia. Just said, show us three lines of improvement. In your vision. So they didn't mention that it had to be done at any particular time point, and they didn't say it had to be done in the dark. But Allergan tested in office and home light settings, the typical photopic conditions, and in a quote unquote scotopic condition that was 25 times dimmer than the lighting in the average home or office..

"Welcome back to the podcast. Thank you for joining today. I have the utmost pleasure of having one of the most, if not, the most renowned ophthalmologist in the world with us today, doctor marguerite McDonald. Doctor McDonald, thank you for spending time with me. My great pleasure, Chris, and marguerite, please. Okay, I appreciate that. So what I really want to talk about initially is what's terribly exciting in the treatment of patients rarely in our careers do we have the opportunity to have something that a lot of us didn't expect would come to treat in a newfound way and now hot off the press we have Allergan's view eye drop for the treatment of presbyopia. I've been able to work with you for the past couple of years leading up to this drug lodge and I'd love to hear your initial thoughts. Well, I am just as excited as you are Chris. It is a completely new area of ocular Therapeutics. And I think launch has been great, the Allergan had representation on a lot of the morning shows since the approval in let's see it was October 29th of 2021. They've gotten into AARP bulletin. You know, there's a lot of buzz, but this week they launched their TV commercials, which are very, very well done. Have you seen them yet, Chris? I did. And it made me smile. It is really impactful. It definitely caught my attention when I first saw the clip. And so I think consumers are going to be equally surprised because for the most part, they probably aren't even aware that this thing even exists yet. I think you're right. And people will jam our phone lines and come pouring in to get a prescription for view. And I've already put a bunch of people on it. I'm sure you have two, most people really like it. I think it helps to give them a little advice. And my advice and this is what most people I think are saying is there may be a little bit of a brow wake that'll go away very quickly over the first few days. You may have a little bit of a sensation of dimming that also passes. So unless something is really upsetting to you, just power through for a week. And that advice seems to have worked very, very well. And most of my patients are delighted. How about in your experience? Yeah, so when I first, I do it differently now than the first week I had it in my hands. And so here's where I changed. Given that both October tourists and ophthalmologists tend to work in very dark exam lanes and given that most patients when they fill a prescription or just pick up their prescription tend to do it, I guess best case over lunch, but commonly at the end of their work day, it occurred to me that a lot of patients who I was initially either dispensing in office the trial or phoning in a prescription for them to pick up or getting their first dose in their own eyes at.

"I had great success with one of my previous patients with a velcro compression wraps system on lower extremity and we used a few extender pieces in we because she was very large. This might largest leg that i worked with We use that and she would apply it. We color coded the straps to wear. It went Because her daughter would help her apply it and She had some cognitive deficits in so it was hard for her to understand. Like i'm pulling this hard But the mother was like she can connect colors. she's a grown woman. She's under twenty's but she lived at home with her mom and she helped her apply. This and so. I would take like act bought a rainbow variety of marguerite i marked the garment and then i'm marked where it went so i would like do a wear a red one in like purple square and purple too. So she would go one to count. It's either connecting colors or numbers. And then as she decongested we cut it in applied new velcro and that was the biggest thing is whenever they sent us dislike some velcro. I don't know how to explain it like it's just a little slot milk and you can reapply it after you've cut it. And that was something that helped her more than anything because she wasn't able herself to apply the short stretch bandages and her daughter wasn't cognitively able to process that either but it really helped to improve their bond and their relationship. The daughter felt very helpful instead of feeling destroy and i thought to myself as well if a older woman in her you know a woman in her twenties who has cognitive delay can feel useful and helpful and proud to help. How much more helpful are these people who are completely cognitively aware of what they're doing like they must feel so much pride and joy that they're able to help their loved ones. So i think that the compression wraps super-duper helps And i definitely recommend it to patients who either live alone living assisted living type facility or even just want something that they can wear day and night and not have to switch. I pull off and pull on new garments because you can just readjusted after you wake up in the morning or pop it on after your shower and so there are a lot of scenarios where the compression wrap does the trick I love that outside the box thinking by the way. That's really awesome. The way that you could figure out a way to help the daughter helped a mom like that's awesome a as far as the Velcro pieces I love that you brought. That up yet are velcro pieces. You can buy them alicarte and the really cool thing about our compression rap and this is another place where i recommend it for folks if somebody has a lot of financial constraints A compression route navy less expensive in the long run. Because jews compression ramps are reversible. Somebody pretty much gets double the life out of the garment. So you start. Let's say you're using the base out a lot and you get a lot of wearing chair you you just turn it the other way and start wearing the black site out and like you said you can just reorder the velcro pieces if they're losing some of their. You know effectiveness so That's another reason that that i really liked the compression wraps. I like that people get a lot of us out of them so they really get a lot of bang for their buck with those compression wraps because.

"But then a few decades, period chroniclers disagreed about the duals details and disputed legree's guilt. Some wrote as Jaeger recounts and lapham's quarterly, that Jean only won because lagree slipped on his opponent's blood. Others wrote about a supposed deathbed confession by a felon who, having a last minute change of heart, admitted that he not agree had raped marguerite. Enlightenment thinkers of the 18th century adopted this revision of liquid's character to advance their own intellectual agendas. Positioning itself in contrast to the purportedly superstitious Middle Ages, now reimagined as the dark ages, the enlightenment prized, rationality, above all else, figures like Locke, Rousseau, and Voltaire, considered by some modern historians and early feminist, made compelling cases for human rights, gender equality and the natural dignity of all peoples regardless of age, gender or race, which makes the enlightenment's widespread acceptance of the medieval narrative that lagree was innocent and refusal to consider Margaret's perspective all the more surprising, and even hypocritical. One of the enlightenment's most scathing critiques of the Middle Ages was of its violence, particularly in capital punishment. For some, Jacques lagree became a martyr, a man sentenced to a brutal death by a backwards and superstitious legal system, which demonized him. One of the places agrees vindication emerged was in the encyclopedie, this project spearheaded by Denis diderot and Jacques d'alembert was one of the first modern encyclopedias and a text which articulated many of the enlightenment's most formative arguments. In the article on duels, lawyer Antoine gaspard Boucher darji described how under King Charles the 6th, people fault for so little offering as an example, the one he ordered in 1386 between kurush and agree. The latter was accused by carus's wife, of having made an attempt on her honor. Agree was killed in the fight and therefore found guilty. Nevertheless she was afterwards found innocent by the culprit of the crime who declared agree innocent as he late dying. Before the duel agree had asked in all the monasteries of Paris that God should pray for him. Darcey's account did not grapple with whether marguerite's testimony was valid, but instead chose to emphasize the duels and justice towards lagree and the futility of lie's prayers. Voltaire likewise, and his du parlement de Paris, critiqued the brutality of the duel as well as the fact that these duels regarded today as an unpardonable crime were always carried out with the sanction of the laws and the church. However, Voltaire only acknowledged marguerite insofar as he claimed all these fights were fought for women. Neither darge nor Voltaire mentioned marguerite by name. Behind the enlightenment's exoneration of agree, where its arguments against the use of torture and judicial proceedings. According to enlightenment scholar and university of Florida assistant Professor of history Anton Mathieu, the enlightenment salt, the end to judicial torture, the abolition of the death penalty and the institution of proportional and humane punishments that would deter people from committing crimes. This is the main context in which they would have seen a dually barbaric way to settle a legal matter. Cesare betaria, a leading enlightenment thinker, outlined how judicial torture primarily benefited not those who were innocent and had nothing to confess, but those whose physical constitutions would allow them to withstand pain. The enlightenment celebration of marguerite de carrouges accused rapist challenges our notions of how history develops, while the enlightenment looks more familiar to modernized than the more distant Middle Ages intellectual and cultural development is not a straight line. While it is obvious now that marguerite's testimony deserved to be listened to, was wrongly downplayed in her own time and was ignored by later historians for the.

How Philanthropic CEO Carmen Rojas Learned to Lead as Her Full Self
"What would you do? If you had millions of dollars at your fingertips let me clarify what would you do if your job was to take that money and spend it in ways that would make the world a better place that's the question that Carmen row house is confronted with every day. Carmen is the president and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation. She stepped into the role justice cove nineteen hit, and this moment is inspiring big questions about generosity giving and the future of philanthropy. Permanent. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Oh thank you so much. I'm such a fan of you of your show and so I'm so glad to be here. I. Love When Interview Start That way? much of your career has focused on improving the life of working people across the country what about your own upbringing drew you to this work? My mom immigrated from Nicaragua and my dad immigrated from Venezuela they landed in San Francisco and the immigrated at this really weird moment and Hyman US history where it was the peak of the civil rights movement, the peak of the Labor movement, the peak of the feminist movement, and so my parents with middle school education's both from very rural places came to San Francisco and we're able to make lives for themselves in for us for their kids that were so far beyond the things that they could imagine. So my parents. For Middle School and I got a PhD from Berkeley I. Think a lot about how that time that my parents emigrated SOC shaped the opportunities that were available to me, and how from that moment to today we've seen that window of opportunities shut for the vast majority of people both immigrants people of Color. Native folks black people that this moment in time we were expected the squeeze the juice out of a grain of sand. And I looked around me and one. was exhausting to be one of the only women of the very few women of color one of dot of Latina's in rooms and just made it very. Sort of. Clear decision to really focus all of my energy on making sure that I'm not going to be the only one that I won't be the last generation of people that gets to benefit and enjoy from these moments in time and to try to figure out ways to create more moments in time for more of us to be better off. Growing up how was generosity displayed in your home? My mom is one of seventeen and my dad is one of ten. Seventeen all birthed by the same woman, all birth by the same woman. My mom was the first one of her siblings, the MIGRATES, united, States, and my dad was as well and so my mom tells these really amazing stories. Her siblings were sisters especially wanted to come to the United States. She would like work all day work most of the night, spend the nights like filling out immigration paperwork, taking them in for seventeen siblings and our house really became sort of a beacon I can't remember a time in my childhood where we didn't have other people living in our house. My Mom, my mom worked cleaning office buildings. She worked sewing clothes worked at last LEVI's factory in San Francisco, our? House? I feel like was what what I think is true philanthropy this desire to give this desire to open up. Some might think of yours but others think of hours so that so many more people can enjoy the ability to live lives of dignity. When did you first learn about philanthropy as a formal concept for disseminating help? Yeah. I was an Undergrad I. got this really interesting fellowship at this organization in San Francisco called the Green Lining Institute my summer project was to try to figure out in the state of California of all of these institutional donors how much of their money went to organizations led by people of Color and immigrants and it turned out these numbers haven't changed much but it's like less than five percent. and. So my job was to call us institutions to do the tally board and be like, okay, blessing one percent and it was really striking to me because philanthropy is one of those things that is benevolent and powerful we think about is inherently something good to give but we don't ever tell the back story like philanthropic institutions again, like my own are often built on twice stolen wealth wealth that's extracted from our economy on the one side and on the other side, won't that people aren't paying taxes into our social safety net into our government to actually try to resolve some of the instant issues that foundations are trying to solve. Once it became visible to me that these institutions existed that these people were giving money and that they were only giving money to sort of social service programs are to help people from the base of generosity. But these were actually shaping our political and economic experience. We can tie the rise of charter schools to philanthropy. We can tie the rise of privatizing public goods philanthropy wants it became visible to me. It was something that I couldn't unseen and I. Now am in a really interesting position because I in this moment the moment that the covert moment, the economic crisis moment, the social unrest moment. Has Really, invited me to think about philanthropy as this intermediary step

Summoning the Courage to Change the Power Structure
"So. Gardner has welcome to Latino rebels radio. I. Thank you so much for having. So I have a lot to talk to you about and I know we are going to talk about covert and incarceration and health but. Obviously this week I think the entire nation was shook with what has happened in Minneapolis and I and I just wanted to get your thoughts about the death of George, Floyd or how? Trauma and how outrage actually? I WANT WANNA. Get your two takes like how you. How do you feel like looking being in a someone? This week in the middle of Pandemic when this is happening, but also just like the health implications of constant trauma, and I just had a really I'm from privilege, and I'm having problems with this, so I'm going to get your thoughts i. Yeah. We're in the same boat I. Today's my first day as President at Marguerite Casey Foundation. Got The right day. And I feel and. On. The one hand really devastated not only. Because of the murder of George. Floyd also because of the murder of Brianna Taylor, because I'm not of Tony mcdaid that. We are living in witnessing. Sort of the constant assassination of black people. By a state that does not value their lives and I'm really torn up about it I on the one side I feel. Like my sector, like philanthropy is often at the edges on not willing to be abolitionist, not willing to call on not only police accountability, imagining supporting organizers in leaders in our communities to imagine a world where detention and incarceration and policing aren't the only ways that we resolve the issues that we have with each other. and on the other side you know we really quickly as an institution, we put out. Six hundred thousand dollars to leading black led organizations in Tallahassee in Minneapolis. In Louisville. That are at the front lines, both of the abolition, the fight for abolition and and to try to address the issues that are happening today, and so the health consequences for all of our families for all of us is a extreme like. How can we imagine a different world a different future where being killed every day when brothers and sisters are being killed everyday when our aunts and uncles in MOMS and dads are held in detention and put into prison when our political leaders are. Corporate leaders are nonprofit leaders Fine the courage to actually step up and say we deserve better. Our families deserve better. Yeah, I'm devastated Julio. Frenk I I'm really glad you. I wanted to ask you that question and I. Really I really appreciate you like putting it in the context of what you do because I do think. In this world sometimes we're taught to you know. We can only stay in one lane, or and I think you know even me as a journalist like. I've struggled this week. And in the context of like Cohen teen in the context of what you wanted to talk about as well which I also think you know. It's funny because we just published on Friday. Three letters from migrant detainees inside of a immigration jail in Illinois. That, twenty, trans queer weblog reached out and we. We published their words. He's people are saying these conditions. You know I am worried I am. I'm not getting any help. I'm being dehumanized and we just decide well. These these letters came out so there's a risk because you're like they WANNA come out in public, but then when you come in public, it's like. It's a criminalized system. People are speaking out. Talk to me how this is interconnected in the in the work that you do because you're like the reason why we wanted to talk about what you're saying you. You mentioned abolitionist them. You've mentioned. Detention jails, and how this is how society is just not getting it especially now, especially during covert so. How do you begin to connect it all? Yeah, you know philanthropy is really weird, and on the one side I am clear that philanthropy isn't. Better of a functioning democracy and are robust and fare economy right that philanthropy exists mostly because he's our tax dollars that are not. That are awarded. And rich people, and then they're rich institutions get to be the arbiters of who is deserving of resources in a moment. What ideas are deserving of being lifted up? What leaders should be resourced, right? I. I I am clear that I'm like in A. that. I'm holding contradiction right that I believe in a functioning stage with the safety net that taxes are most. Wealthy at the benefit of all of us and I work at an institution that as as been created because of these failures and. I think that. Many of my peers in philanthropy have given up. The ability to actually contest for power to use these positions and the resources that we have Julio. We are one institution right? We have seven hundred over seven hundred million dollars in an endowment. That we get to us not only to try to supplant government or take the place of government, not only to create a band aid on the cancer that our communities are facing. We can use these resources to support leaders organizations to start to create evidence that our families can be more powerful to start to create evidence that our government can actually for us that it could be more responsive than it can look like us. That I can talk and feel like us. We can create evidence that our economy doesn't have to work only at the expense of our most vulnerable workers right. And many I think many of my peers don't see that

A Moment in Time, with Shari Belafonte
"Today. We're GONNA be talking sheriff about photography. So let's get into it Sherry. Welcome to our show. It's so great having Jose here so you have grown up around cameras now as a little kid all my life cameras aimed at you most again. Your Dad was Trenton Center. He was big deal. Back in the fifties sixties seventies. He broke down a lot of walls. Again everybody's familiar with his music and his acting and everything else. So you're smiling laughing about so. I was very hyperactive. Attention deficit as a child. I still lamb a little curtail with certain things now making native American blood you know wearing a bright orange camp right now you WanNa talk about it. Yeah Orange there you go. There's fast on. Go ahead I'm sorry. My Grandmother gave me my first Brownie camera. Now that's how far back I with the fan flash that you put the light bulb shit so I had that one. I was four years old. How many megapixel was and you would get this little tiny roll of film that you would put inside that Yummy and That was my first foray into being behind the camera and then instamatic semantic when I was I think I had a funny little polaroid camera that we had them all And my first legitimate camera was a pentax when I was eleven years old. Okay I was in boarding school by Matic or h three the it was. You know I can't remember I just. It was a thirty five millimeter Pentax Camera. That was dad's I know. Dad had a SPA top. Any passed it down to me so my entire high school was spent in the dark room. I smell like smoke. That was really attractive. Smell coming out of the yellow fingernails sitting in the dark. You Know Rolling and Rolling Rolling Rolling and then you know praying that you could put it in the CAN. It would come out and it wasn't all crumpled and you know so. Yeah I spent a good part of my earlier years behind the camera. And then of course like you said being Harry's daughter you know when we when he was on tour somewhere and there's Paparazzi or people taking pictures of us all the time and then Harry took pictures of us all the time that we never saw and it was the biggest joke because he was he always got get over there. Get OVER THERE. Get over there. Stop Stop Standards There. Hundreds and hundreds of pictures that were taken by. Harry and we've never seen a single one single. And why do you think that's the case? He just too busy to Kinda know if he ever developed and I don't know if there was even filmed the camera I think he had these Lycos and he just you know he just kept shooting once in a while. We saw him because he would. When he was a touring he would have these The program with this and it was always the big color program that would come with new. Buy A ticket and there would be pictures of us you know in there and we go to dad. Shoot that picture around. The house was photography kind of a respected medium. Was it an art to be an art. He did have a darkroom which he never went into. He just had it in the back next his recording studio but he did use a recording studio. Did use the recording. But Yeah we always have been shutterbugs. I think the whole definitely me more so than I think my siblings but Harry was definitely behind the camera. He was into like us us a very like a like like like scandal. And what about the Paparazzi and stuff? Maybe it wasn't. I can't even say that it wasn't like it is now because Paparazzi but was it A pain in the bud. Was it something that you guys so I was so used to? You know because what happened is my hair Harry. In Marguerite. My mom was marguerite. She passed away a few years go but they divorced. When I was very young actually separated woman was pregnant with me so there was always that kind of people trying to take pictures of that that was going on but there was a little more of a sense of decency for lack of better words with authorizing I mean. Now it's like Oh goes the there were lines. That were not crossed back then. I mean chances and stuff like that and they they definitely probably got onto your skin right probably worse today and usually think it was more of a magazine would come in. Ebony magazine would come in and say you know. Can we shoot you at home or and you know there was a story that was behind it and maybe the attorneys would go yet. It's good idea. Let's let's push that you know. Yeah we've always been around cameras for yourself. It's often family. What kind of things interested you would sort of you know? In the days I was in boarding school in Massachusetts so I I've always been a fan of black and white. I never learned how to process color and of course slides for the first things. You sort of learned. I never learned how to process but I was always into the dynamic of black and white so with the snow in Massachusetts. There was always the lights and shadows and you can stream you know falling through the ice no save. The camera saved the camera. Shot landscapes mostly landscapes. And then I shot everything and then as I got older and could start a fording stuff. I actually stopped shooting for a while and then when Sam. I got married thirty five years ago. Sam gave me my first Yoeskamnoer. I had by then already onto Canon cameras. But you know hey a one and the that great but then Sam gave me my first Kammer after maybe not shooting for ten years and we went on our honeymoon to Italy and I just shot like crazy like bags and bags film was carrying at the time. Kodak made what was called recording fill in the recording. Four seventy five four and as soon as you develop it would turn into a corkscrew that you can never hold flat that I didn't know because by then I wasn't processing okay but Three hundred you could you. Could you could set the The whatever you wanted I mean you couldn't with any film but this was if you decided to shoot at or if you wanted to shoot one hundred thirty two hundred or sixty four hundred. Just remember what you shot that at and you'd process it like if I shot four hundred three sixty I process it at four hundred by shoot at three sixty and I mean the detail was. It's crazy it's like mega pixels eight thousand and I just fell in love with that and then when Kodak stopped making it because they said well you know nobody's buying it because it was twelve dollars a roll and I know buying it. No please keep making and then shortly after you know film just kind of went by the wayside and now it's coming back. Is it coming back to us? Sales were up twenty percent last year. So you now actually have to try and find a film camera. I still actually have a rebel. Okay okay isn't it rebel? Originally rebels were killed. What was called the digital rebel? No megapixel but I did have for the Canon thirty and I was started shooting movies of Friends of mine. Who were directors said? Would you shoot stills movie and I remember get going into get a sound blimp made for my digital camera and the guys in you and Steven Spielberg's guy or the only people that have blimps for you. These eight thirty eight sixty. Whatever I add albertson blimp. Right Jacobsen Jacobsen recently closed down. There's no need for any other. No ex- exactly. I've got this this whole box downstairs in the garage is because like don't need the blimp. Next time lenses by the I worked on a movie as recently as Twenty fifteen and with a digital camera and they recorded a blimp ahead to go rent one. I mean even even that little clique. If you're onset now we have an issue thousand frames so that one was especially digital you shoot so fast. The first movie I did shoot I had asked me me. Leaders a friend of mine and she also is the executive producer and director of the morning. Show but at the time going back. You know fifteen twenty years. Whenever it was that I was shooting this I said to her. You know this is the first time shooting for a movie. What she's just keeps shooting shoot. Shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot so I did. I shot eight thousand seven hundred and seventy eight frames and thought okay. You know. I'm their mom. Put them all and give them. And then oh no we just need your best hundred. It took me like three weeks to go through every single one of those because I really looked like I was shooting movie. Everything was so slightly different. They know what would you take away from that experience? Really get an editor back to that five role mentality you know. They'll have a budget for three to five roles. And that's what you did shooting digital change anything when you when you shoot because obviously it did change a lot for a lot of people in this idea of shooting maybe too much or a lot or just the freedom they can give you. Some really changed a lot of people's now you know everything is it cyclical now. I've barely picked up my camera now. Also have a Sony seven hours and shooting with my Samsung Galaxy's the galaxy the first galaxy thing. I had a four note for one of the earlier. Ones the best pictures I've ever seen. I went on my God. Look at these pictures that I'm getting on my phone and now I have a lot of my family's mostly apple. Nothing you know not against apple but galaxies have much better pictures you know the Samsung just really has the better technology shooting with your phone and I know friends of mine even say your pictures are so much better than mine. Why is that slow data Samsung if Samsung only made and take get another phone? Get Your Samsung Stolz. But I still like I still like the weight of having a camera and shooting the cameras a different different animal. But now you know. There's a difference for photographers. I never was would call professional photography gallery shows and stuff but I'm not like Greg Gorman. Who was a friend of mine? I didn't shoot and I'm not making money like that as a photographer. And right now so many you can take so many pictures. I mean anybody can get good picture with their phone. You know you can. It's easier to get good pictures now than it used to be. You know you'd have to have a professional photographer do that. Well now I you know people take headshots their phones movies with your eyes. You can do anything. Us forces us to kind of rethink what I should be taking pictures of. And how many pictures should be taking reassessed kind of the nature of it and that's happening. I think you know this return to film. We're seeing people kind of wanting to slow back down a little bit trying to figure out what what's the basis of it. That's really what it is. It's it's a medium. It's like if you're an oil painter if you're into acrylics or if you're doing you know pencil drawings if you're into sculpture it's a it's all worthy it's just a matter of what your taste isn't what it is that you're shooting at that
Do genetic ancestry tests know if youre Palestinian? A cautionary tale of race and science
"Welcome welcome to size friction on the tension ritual in. Today's episode is Genomic Science to go to striking story for you of the shocks. You can engage when you take a genetic ancestry tests and the problems are not in your Diana. They are in the science. Oh man so so I want you to make mercury eight to buy. Oh my gosh. So she's an American Palestinian cartoonist illustrator. Leaving in Brooklyn New York and when Shae Shea started to draw well I kind of helped his stop making sense of the world. When I was younger all I wanted to do withdraw from Warwick fantasy characters? who were you know exploring some fantasy world adventuring trying to figure out the meaning of war? Yeah you Matz I. She was an intense keyed. He'd sigh relate to that. I'm not even joking. That was my first comic when I was like thirteen or fourteen trying to figure out the meaning of war yes the law plot. What was really hard? Core rate was trying to figure out the world her family stories. We're helping figure out a self my family. So my my Palestinian side of the family were originally from Ramallah they came to the US in the sixties after the nineteen sixty seven war. And and. That's where my father. My mother my mother is mostly of British and Scottish ancestry and they met in DC and the register and Marguerite was born. She grew up in San Francisco but she understood whole lot about the deep heritage in history. If if family I lived with a lot of my extended family on my father's side and and the constantly I mean I think it's a very Palestinian thing to talk about loss. I'm sorry to say Palestine and talk about what was lost in talk about how it was and things like that so I heard very much about out where we were from and how it was there and everything and there is actually a book. That is a congenial logical history of Ramallah so my family needs to say his in this book. This is actually a book that was done maybe thirty years ago. There's actually a recent effort to update the books so this is kind of a big thing and it's very much a Palestinian thing to try to keep memory alive. It's a need to assure after that. Hey you know we exist who've had the we had this entire history. We're going to write it somewhere. We're going to you know. Put it somewhere. I wish I could've seen Palestine back in the day honestly because it just sounds really chill a nice. I'd like to go okay. Okay so mercury thought. She had a pretty clear idea about her ancestry but then she sped into a test tube. Well first half-brother on her father's side spat into a test tube. He decided on a whim to take a day and I taste and he got the results back in he was just blake. Yeah you might want to take a look at these results. He's her kind of weird. Well we'd in an intriguing conaway. Our understanding ending was that from my Dad's side. We were fully half Palestinian half Arab but these results they suggested something different so so we were just like what so marguerite decided to do an ancestry test to this was back in two thousand sixteen. They went through twenty three and me did the all spit in a tube and she said it off to the company twenty-three May and literally Chino. Even more surprises would be in store for her so the saliva gets to our partner lab. The DNA is extracted from that. and My name Ms Joanna Mountain and I'm senior. Director of research at twenty three and me and previously at Stanford with Joanna also did her PhD and specialized in human evolutionary evolutionary genetics. So when customers sign on with the genetic testing and Analysis Company twenty-three May which is headquartered in Silicon Valley. He's what what happens to this speech sample around a half. A million positions in the DNA are analyzed and we get the genetic variants at those half million positions genetic knitting variant. Now that just means some kind of unique variation in your genomes deny say quance so then twenty three and me use an automated computerized Haraz prices to p different stretches or windows of your day and I and then I compare those two James off a reference group made up of individuals individuals from different populations globally. Now what ethnicities are present or missing from that reference group. That's K. as you'll he'll IDA and and we look at each one of these little windows and we say to which people is this individual most genetically similar and we continue as we stroll along the genome looking and saying well at this point this genome looks very similar to people from say Iberia and then we get a little further down in. Wow it looks similar to people from commoner and even in further down. It looks similar to people from Ireland. So there's a method we have that classifies each little patch of the genome by saying. Is this more similar to people from Ireland Orland or from France and then the algorithm says okay the probability that's from Ireland and appropriately. France in whichever is highest. Is the winner there so then we patch it all together come up with percentages for each individual so it's a multi step process and that's what we present to the customer okay so back back to margarite radium waiting for the results from twenty three and May to land in her inbox and sure enough. I got I got the results back and Some of them made sense. You know I knew enough about my mother's side of the family told me that okay. HALF OF ME is British and Scottish Scottish. Okay cool makes sense what came next made very little sense to her. Other half is going on percent Italian Elian it said thirty five percent Italian and then the rest was Arab Specifically Oh what did it say. Think specifically had said western Western Asian or something they actually tried to give me a breakdown of what regions of Italy it came from but they couldn't actually detect wherein Italy. It came from at all Wade. It'll Italian come from and actually I think is sweet coincidence. Is it true that your husband is Italian. My husband is Italian and I did actually when I got the test I did ask him like do I look talion. He was just like no suddenly just like that. Migrate was possibly thirty percent Italian and only fifteen percent western Asian and north African and canete slightly saving detail that she is Palestinian heritage. We'll wait until you hear what happened. Win Twenty Twenty three and may updated her results two years later. It's fairly incredible. I though Hel genetically different we really well at the genome scale there. Her over three billion nucleotides that make up our genome. So My name is Sarah Tishkov and I may professor of genetics awesome biology at the University of Pennsylvania and she's hugely influential Sarah and colleagues published the first pipe to support the out of Africa hypothesis of human migration using analysis of the DNA inside cells Nuclei and has conducted the largest studies of genetic variation in in African populations. We differ at about. I would say less than point. One percent of the genome. So that's a relatively small mall amount of difference to give you an idea of we. Compared the human genome to a chimp genome. It differs at about one point. Five percent of the genome less than point point one percent and yet what is contained within that variation that difference the majority of variation is not functional and in fact that variation is very useful for making inferences about evolutionary history about population history demographic McGrath history tracing migration events and so on the part of the genome it actually is influencing variable traits is important for understanding how how we adapted to different environments during human evolution and also understanding why some people are more at risk for certain diseases than others
Witches & Saints: Jeanne d'Albret
"Spiritual power throughout history this month or highlighting women who made incredible contributions to and through religions as well as those who were charged and punished for alleged heresies or supernatural abilities today. We're heading back to the sixteenth century. French wars of religion are women. If the day was one of the most powerful female political figures of the period alongside Queen Elizabeth I and Catherine Domenici she played a leading role in the religious conflicts that dominated the second half of the sixteenth century as the acknowledged spiritual ritual and political leader of the French huguenot movement. I'm talking about John. Dall Bray Queen of Navarre John was born in fifteen twenty eight at a royal palace outside of Paris. She was the only child of Marguerite of Navarre King Henry the second Lavar a tiny sovereign Afrin St stuck between France and Spain Henry also claimed sovereignty over a number of territories in the south of France. John's mother Marguerite Greet was an incredibly accomplished woman. She was a celebrated author of courtly novellas and spiritual works and she was also an early patron of the Protestant reformation. John was heavily influenced by her mother and was drawn to reformed Christianity specifically calvinism as well as humanist just thinking in fifteen forty seven John Married Antoine de Bourbon Duke Vendome with whom she had five children. The only to to a son and a daughter survived past childhood after the death of John's father. She antwon ruled jointly over their territories in south southwestern France. John continued to be drawn to protestantism. Even after her mother's death in fifteen forty nine on Christmas Day fifteen eighteen sixty John publicly converted to calvinism and declared calvinism the official religion of her kingdom that made her the highest ranking Protestant Austin in all of France and designated enemy of the Catholic Church and the Catholic Counter Reformation Movement after converting John joined the Huguenot movement in their fight against French Catholics. The HUGH DOTS were an ethnic religious group of French. Protestants concentrated in the south and west of France as their numbers and influence grew. The Hugo knots were persecuted by French Catholics leading to a series of religious conflicts known as the French wars of religion region fought on and off between fifteen sixty two and fifteen ninety eight when war broke out in fifteen sixty two John worked behind the scenes to fund fund the humane what's she used her own vast fortune and mobilized patronage networks. She also used her influence at the French court to plead eight for their cause. Still she stayed pretty publicly neutral during what became known as the first and second wars when the third war broke out in fifteen fifteen sixty eight John faced both the threat of a noble rebellion and Royal French invasion of her territories. She was forced to flee to the hugh.

John also played a major role in military activity. She even went to the battlefields. During during intense fighting to rally the troops inspect their defenses in fifteen sixty nine John wrote a memoir entitled Ample Declaration Shen in which she defended her actions and those for fellow Hugo noughts a year later in fifteen seventy.

EU commissioner on $5 billion antitrust fine: Google has to 'stop this behavior'
"They have denied European. Consumers the, benefit of effective competition in the very, important, more was fair so Taylor that. Of course was EU competition Commissioner Marguerite the sti- or speaking. Last month if you remember Google received an almost five billion dollar fine it was a record from the EU and was ordered, to change the way it put search and web browser apps on Android mobile devices, penalty is far higher than anyone that's. Been dished out by the US the Chinese or any other anti-trust authority it's really. Interesting that they're trying to sort of make a crackdown on these companies is there sort of feeling like they're falling behind intact and want to be able to better compete with the US and China and Europe hasn't had, that breakout. Tech star that really needs to put itself on the map but Jeremy Mikan found that there are some hopeful startups around the continent Europe historically has suffered from a number of things traditionally there was there is a lack of, entrepreneurial spirit Becoming an auditor wasn't. Something that a lot of European young people wanted, to do there are a lot of very large. Corporations that have been, around for decades kind of in. The environment they're also as a lack of venture capital funding lack. Of people to offer that venture capital funding and to some extent there was a lack of skills I think all, those things are no longer the case in Europe and now you find there are a ton of. Young people who want to be entrepreneurs and start their own businesses a very popular career choice for people coming out of universities just to go work for a startup so that. Problems kind of solve the venture capital funding has increasingly comeback Europe last year had a, record level of venture capital. Funding at at nineteen billion US dollars and law that's still a lot less than the US which had. About sixty. Seven billion or China which had about forty billion it? Is a record for Europe and it's four times as much as what's available. Just five
